He was riding in a CV-22 Osprey aircraft, an unwieldylooking cross between a helicopter and an airplane, when it overshot a landing and crashed in the Zabul Province in April 2010, 13 days after he was deployed. The pilot, flight engineer, Army ranger and a civilian contract employee were killed, and Sgt. Hernandez was among 16 who were injured. His injuries were extensive, including a ripped intestine, collapsed lung and a traumatic brain injury but he survived.

That is, unless I say Im going to deal in rumor, a word synonymous with fiction, Facebook accounts of family life, and weather reports. In that case, and after long and careful consideration, I spread rumor for only one reason, like foie gras or cream cheese or Nutella: to give my readers a richer understanding of the world around them. Which is why I will now report a luscious little rumor coming out of Tallahassee. Preposterous as it sounds, Gov. Rick Scott may soon declare 2014 to be the official Rick Scott Year of Love! Apparently, he was baldly intimidated after learning late last week that helmethaired challenger and centrist Charlie Crist, a real lover boy when it comes to politicking, has entered the race for governor. We will beat him with L ove, the governor is rumored to have ordered his senior staff. We will out-hug him, out-kiss-babies him, out stare-into-the-eyes-of-old-ladies him starting now, we will designate 2014 the Rick Scott Year of Love! If the rumor is true, its an ironic position for this governor. He is, after all, the man who started his working life by opening a doughnut shop in Kansas City. For those who miss the metaphorical irony there, let me explain: a doughnut is a circle of love with a big fat heartless hole in it. Gov. Scott is also the man whose healthcare company, Columbia/HCA, admitted to 14 felonies on his watch as an owner and CEO in the 1990s, including fraudulently billing Medicare, for which the company was fined more than $630 million by the U.S. government after its board forced him to step down. Thats not very loving, either. But in the governors defense, let me point out that people change (usually for the worse). Nowadays, Gov. Scott is proving to be one of the most Loving executive leaders weve ever placed in the state capitol. So the Rick Scott Year of Love makes perfect sense, to me and if the rumor isnt true, I think the governor should make it true. Here are three short reasons why: First, Rick Scotts Love of family. Second, Rick Scotts Love of people. And finally, Rick Scotts Love of country. Lets start with family. Not long after he won his first election by spending more than $75 million of his own money, Gov. Scott proposed a program to drug-test state employees, as many as 100,000 of them, along with welfare recipients, all at $10 to $70 a pop for the companies that get to do the work. About 12 weeks earlier, he had transferred his prominent holdings in a private company that stood to do a good deal of that lucrative testing, Solantic, to his wife. Clearly, he must Love his wife a lot. He loves people, too, some of them. True, Gov. Scott eviscerated the Everglades restoration program that former Gov. Crist had modeled his administration on, killing a deal that even the likes of U.S. Sugar was willing to make by selling its land (188,000 acres) to all of us taxpayers and no kidding, that would have saved the Everglades, which might be good for some people. In a single move, the plan would have cleaned up polluted water hosed into Lake Okeechobee from the north then dumped into the St. Lucie River on the east, the Caloosahatchee River on the west, the Atlantic Ocean off Stuart, the Gulf of Mexico off Sanibel, and Florida Bay off of everything to the south of the Florida Peninsula and the United States of America. How? By (get this!) sending it southward where it used to flow, thus restoring significant health to those once fecund water systems for future generations. But the governor killed that plan out of Love for his people and his people are not future generations. His people are golfers. After all, politicians arent elected by the unborn, who dont even have voter registration cards yet. Instead, theyre elected by people who spend their lives trying to lower their golf handicaps and avoid drinking before noon. Its all very well for people like Charlie Crist to go around worrying about future generations and kissing babies, but whos going to Love golfers? Gov. Scott, thats who. Golf is expensive, after all, and nobody drinks the water that keeps the back nine green, so who cares how clean it is? Let some other people spend their money on Everglades restoration, if they care about it so much. You know, someday. Which brings me to Gov. Scotts Love of country. Recently, after Gov. Scott first rejected the Affordable Care Act, he proved his Love of country by bravely refusing to accept federal government money that is part of it money already paid into the U.S. government by Florida taxpayers. That money, in a program called Medicaid expansion, was set aside to medically insure people living below the poverty line in the Sunshine State, a cool million of them or so. In other words, Gov. Scott turned down $51 billion that would have been paid into Florida over the next 10 years, in a move supported by the most conservative wing of the Republican Party in the state legislature. Along with Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford, the governor probably figured that all those little po boys can just go take care of themselves, to use a Loving euphemism. (Definition, po boys: n., the really, really, really poor people, not just the very, very, very poor people.) After all, they always have, havent they? The po boys get sick and either 1., Go to the emergency room, or 2., Die. Either way, problem solved. By turning down that federal money, Gov. Scott showed his unparalleled Love of country. He wanted to save the federal government $51 billion in Florida donations, and he by-God did. So, for all those reasons, I have brought this rumor to you, my readers. And I say spread it thick or thin, but spread it: 2014 may soon be designated The Rick Scott Year of Love. t a h c 1 C rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 The rising resistance to Obamas drone wars I wasnt scared of drones before, but now when they fly overhead I wonder, Will I be next? That is the question asked by 9-year-old Nabila Rehman, from northwest Pakistan. She was injured in a drone attack a year ago, in her small village of Ghundi Kala. She saw her grandmother, Mamana Bibi, blown to pieces in the strike. Her brother Zubair also was injured. Their case has become the latest to draw attention to the controversial targeted killing program that has become central to President Barack Obamas foreign policy and global war-making. We really just have a very simple message to the U.S.: How do you justify killing a grandmother? How does that make anyone safer? Mustafa Qadri posed the question on the Democracy Now! news hour. Qadri authored a new Amnesty International report titled Will I Be Next? U.S. Drone Strikes in Pakistan. Nabila and Zubair are unique among the growing number of drone-strike victims: They were able to appear before Congress, along with their father, Rafiq ur Rehman, to testify about the strike and the devastation it brought to their family. They are featured in a new documentary being released for free on the Internet this week, Unmanned: Americas Drone Wars, by Brave New Films. In it, Rafiq, a primary-school teacher, describes that day: People enjoyed life before the attacks. It was 2:45 on October 24th of 2012. After school finished I went into town to buy school supplies. When he returned home, they told him his mother was dead. There was a crater where her garden was. She was picking okra with the children. Thats where my mother was killed, Rafiq continues. My family has been destroyed since my mother was killed. Nine children in all were injured, as this drone strike fit a typical pattern, with one initial strike, followed closely by another to hit the rescuers. Thirteen-year-old Zubair testified before Congress: When the drone fired the first time, the whole ground shook and black smoke rose up. The air smelled poisonous. We ran, but several minutes later the drone fired again. People from the village came to our aid and took us to the hospital. We spent the night in great agony at the hospital, and the next morning I was operated on. Attacking rescuers is a war crime. Mustafa Qadri from Amnesty International explained: For example, some laborers in a very impoverished village near the Afghanistan border, they get targeted, eight die instantly in a tent; those who come to rescue or to look for survivors are themselves targeted. In great detail, eyewitnesses, victims who survive, tell us about the terror, the panic, as drones hovered overhead. ... Theres a very high threshold for proving (war crimes). With the secrecy surrounding the program, the remoteness of this area, we can only get the truth once the U.S. comes clean and explains what is the justification for these killings. President Obama himself consistently defends the accuracy and legality of the targeted killing program. He was directly challenged on it recently, though, by his own 16-year-old humanrights hero, Malala Yousafzai. She is the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen for her outspoken support for educating girls and women. Many thought she would win this years Nobel Peace Prize. While the White House did not publicize her comments, Malala released a separate statement about her visit with the Obamas, saying, I also expressed my concerns that drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people. If we refocus efforts on education it will make a big impact. Resistance to President Obamas drone wars is growing. In upstate New York, in a surprise ruling, five antidrone activists were acquitted after being tried for blocking the gate of Hancock Field Air National Guard Base near Syracuse. Code Pink is organizing a national conference in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 16-17, called Drones Around the Globe: Proliferation and Resistance. And at least one drone pilot, Brandon Bryant, a former sensor operator for the U.S. Air Force Predator program, has now spoken out about the horrors of killing innocent civilians and the post-traumatic stress disorder that followed. While only five members of Congress (all Democrats) came to hear the Rehman family testify, the words of young Zubair are now on the record, a painful testament to President Obamas policy of so-called targeted killing with drones: I no longer love blue skies. In fact, I now prefer gray skies. The drones do not fly when the skies are gray. And for a short period of time, the mental tension and fear eases. When the skies brighten, though, the drones return, and so, too, does the fear. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. m w o m u s amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly To say that President Barack Obama is on the record telling Americans they can keep their current health insurance is an understatement. He repeated the assurance so many times during the health-care debate that it was almost a verbal tic. He was stirring: Americans must have the freedom to keep whatever doctor and health-care plan they have. He was adamant: If you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period. He was clear: Let me be clear: If you like your doctor or health-care provider, you can keep them. If you like your health-care plan, you can keep that, too. He had to keep repeating his promise, since there was so much bad information out there. No matter what youve heard, he said in a weekly radio address in August 2009, if you like your doctor or health-care plan, you can keep it. Practically no President Obama speech was complete without this disclaimer. Rarely has a major domestic program been sold on the basis of a premise so patently untrue. No matter what youve heard from the president of the United States, hundreds of thousands of people in states around the country are now receiving notices that their insurance is getting canceled. It raises the question of how the president could be so wrong about a basic element of his own signature initiative. Until now, President Obama hasnt been pressed to square what he said with the reality of those cancellation notices. But the dam is breaking. Former adviser David Axelrod has refined the Obama promise to say that most people can keep their insurance, which doesnt have quite the same ring as the presidents sweeping statements of yore. White House spokesman Jay Carney conceded under questioning that some plans are being axed. It may be true, per Mr. Axelrod, that most people with insurance in the country are keeping it, but most people in the individual market are losing it. Robert Laszewski of the consultancy Health Policy and Strategy Associates estimates that 19 million people are covered in the individual market and 16 million of them have plans that dont pass muster under the exacting new Obamacare rules. This is a problem of a different order than the travails of www.healthcare. gov. The website will presumably get fixed; its failures are a bug, not a feature. Throwing people off old plans, in contrast, is central to Obamacares remaking of American health insurance. Mr. Carney justified the cancellations as the shedding of substandard policies, by which he means policies that are more affordable and less comprehensive than allowed under the law. Many of the people who found that those policies suited them will now be forced to buy different, more expensive policies. Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, is planning to offer legislation grandfathering those plans so people can really keep them. Sen. Johnsons bill would force Democrats to choose between defending the law and standing by President Obamas frequently repeated promise. They will, of course, choose the law. The line about how Americans must have the freedom to keep whatever doctor and health-care plan they have isnt operative, and never was. Welcome to Obamacare.

We were particularly impressed by their account of the numerous challenges their east Naples school of nearly 800 students faces. (Since it opened in 2007, Parkside has qualified as a Title I school, receiving federal assistance because of its high percentage of students from low-income families.) Nearly 90 percent of the students at Parkside come from homes where the adults speak only Spanish or Haitian Creole, and 97 percent of the children participate in the free or reduced-price lunch program, according to Collier County Public Schools figures. In addition, very few of the youngsters at Parkside have the advantage of grandparents living nearby or even in this country. In her second year as principal, Mrs. Stewart can already point to many new initiatives designed to help meet the mission of Empowering Students for Lifelong Success. Our Kiwanis Club has decided to help, too. Our goal is to match one volunteer with each of Parksides 41 classes, hence the name: Project 41 Parkside Elementary. We invite any retiree or stayat-home parent who is available during normal school hours to join our effort. We encourage seasonal residents to participate as well. Here are the basics: We need enthusiastic, giving adults who can adopt a class as their own for three hours on one day every week, from either 9 a.m. to noon or noon to 2:50 p.m. Helpers are needed for every grade, Pre-K through 5, and can choose the grade they feel most comfortable with. Additional opportunities for service exist outside the classrooms in activities such as tutoring, reading and helping out in the media center and on field trips. A word of personal testimony for those considering our invitation: A few weeks ago, when I began my Project 41 Parkside Elementary volunteer experience, I spent time in two second-grade classes. As I left the first class after 30 minutes, three children came running after me and presented me their little drawings that read Thank you for coming! and Please come back! How can you top that? So many rewarding moments await those who join us in Project 41 Parkside Elementary. But most importantly, we are helping some very deserving young children and are playing an important role in setting them on the right direction for their lives. Long ago, I recognized the powerful impact of school volunteers upon the lives of the youngsters they mentor. Having spent the past 10 years as a volunteer at another Collier County elementary school (the one my own grandchildren attended), I continue to be amazed by the many joys of this work. For me personally, it has been a unique learning experience filled with delight. Most of the volunteers I know share these feelings; for some of us, it has been a life-changing experience. Kids teach us in so many ways, day in and day out. To find out more, visit www.collierschools. com/pse. Additional information can be found at www.educationforcollier.org, the website of the Education Foundation of Collier County-Champions for Learning. And please feel free to arrange for a personal, nonobligatory get-acquainted visit to Parkside Elementary School as well. Call Mr. Gemmer at the school, 377-8900, or me at 601-0056. We look forward to meeting you. Rainer Olbrich bills himself as retired and a proud OPA (grandfather)!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 view, you sense a change of place and time. Absent are any and all things commercial or blinking. Here, homes built in the 1920s nestle behind Spanish mossladen oak trees, and the only sounds are tinkling wind chimes and a soft, whistling breeze. Think Mayberry with a bit of a twist. Like the fictional hometown of Sheriff Andy Griffith, Cassadaga is quaint and filled with close-knit neighbors. But instead of pies cooling on windowsills, pastel signs indicating medium and clairvoyant adorn porches and yards. Cassadaga is home to more than 40 certified mediums and healers who help visitors seeking answers or relief for physical and emotional suffering. Other spiritualists and members of the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp also call the village home. The camp owns the land on which about 75 homes stand; the residents all are camp members. All together the camp is made up of 57 acres donated by George Colby, a spiritualist from New York who homesteaded the land in the late 1800s. A walk around the neighborhood and grounds leaves one with a sense of wonder and questions. Visiting CassadagaDuring a recent tour of the camp, certified mediums and healers opened up their homes and gave voice to the otherwise still neighborhood. This is a unique place with unique people, said board trustee and resident Michael Griffin. He and fellow board trustee Dennis Groseclose pointed to the homes of healers and mediums and detailed the kind of work they do. Artists, health-care professionals, musicians, clerical workers and military service members are among them. Im a professional clown, and I substitute teach and have an EKG license, Terri Swerdloff, an employee at the Cassadaga bookstore, said. A serene sense of focus and purposeful living pervades, much like one would expect in a religious commune. In fact, residents of the camp call it one of the oldest religious-based communities in the United States. They spend their time in reflection, communicating with the spirit world and beyond and guiding visitors in their personal journeys for knowledge and healing. First-time visitors to Cassadaga might describe Colby Memorial Temple and the Caesar Foreman Healing Gazebo as unworldly. Inside the gazebo are two chairs one for the healer and one for the seeker. The healers chair is a tufted red velvet stool; the seekers, a simple wooden one with claw feet on crystal balls. Benches line the walls for observers to watch the healing process. One can leave the room with a heady, energized feeling. The gazebo is open to the public for 30 minutes each week while healers work with visitors in rotation. This public viewing is offered as a greeting and a kind of introduction to the mystical work performed throughout Cassadaga. More involved and personal healings can be scheduled to take place in the homes of individual healers. Across from the gazebo, weekly services, healings and meetings are held in the Colby Memorial Temple. This building is the lifeblood of Cassadaga, where camp members and visitors worship God and communicate with the spirit world. The tenet of the spiritualists is the continuity of life. For them, death is merely a shift that signifies the opening of another portal to communication and connection. Spiritualism is what drew Mr. Colby here in 1875. According to camp board trustees, he was guided by a Native American named Seneca to settle the land that is now Cassadaga. The camp was formed in 1894, at the height of a time when people sought mediums to help them communicate with loved ones and seek advice from the spirit world. Cassadaga Rev. Janie Owens explained that spiritualists such as herself believe there is no original sin, that people are responsible for their own actions and have free will to change the way they live their lives. There is no creed, she said. Thats why I believe so many people are attracted. The pews are packed during church services at Cassadaga, and attendance continues to grow, she added. Theyre looking for answers. People want the healing. Its body, mind and spirit.Mediums and healersDuring the nearly 120 years Cassadaga has been in existence, its way of life has remained the same. Mediums and healers live and work to maintain communications with the spirit world and the living. Camp members have strict standards for working as a medium or healer. All of them must be certified with at least four years of study and training, according to Rev. Judy Cooper. This is a religion, she said. We take it very seriously. Cassadaga has no fly-by-night soothsayers, TV-based fortunetellers or carnival-style theatrics. Only old-school hard work and training will do. Theres a lot of foundation here, Rev. Cooper said. Mediums and healers are trained individuals. We have some of the best students you will run across. On the porch of the Andrew Jackson Davis Educational Building and Bookstore, a young medium in training flashed a smile and chatted with Mr. Griffin, the board member, about her studies. Just steps away at the Cassadaga Hotel, tarot card readers and mediums reside and work. The hotel, which at one time was part of the camp, was sold to a private party during the Great Depression. According to local lore, ghosts and spirits flit about the hotel property. The true South Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp experience starts at the bookstore. Any of the signs for mediums and psychics along the road before the camp cannot be vouched for. At camp headquarters, at 1112 Stevens St., visitors can peruse a book detailing the history of the camp as well as descriptions of the certified mediums and healers working there. References are good to use when choosing a medium or healer, but so is good old-fashioned intuition. You must have a connection, Rev. Cooper said. Insider her Victorian-style home, it was not hard to get comfortable. Incense infused the air, and purple-hued rocks and crystal sparkled on a table. (Purple is considered a color of spirituality and higher order, Rev. Cooper explained.) What one gets out of a reading is up to the person seeking guidance, she added. We make our own happiness. Rose Thorn, a Fort Myers psychologist, said mediums and healers should be looked at the same way one considers conventional medical and mental-health professionals: You find someone that works for you. All mediums are not the WORLDFrom page 1 Top: Rev. Don Zanghi displays a metal trumpet-like device sometimes used during sances to move and make sound signifying the presence of a spirit.

Many healers go into the field because at one time they were hurting themselves, and along the way in their healing process they discovered a gift or aptitude to help others. Rev. Owens, who now runs the temple at Cassadaga, began her work as a healer in the 1980s after she was injured in a major car accident. When she sought healing and answers to her challenges through spiritual therapy at Cassadaga, she also found her gift of being able to see spirits and draw them. Rev. Diane Davis said she flunked out of college and was a frustrated office worker nearly 40 years ago when she found her calling. She went to a reading and discovered her ability to feel things on an intuitive basis. I didnt have mystic experiences, she said. Just knowingness. A teacher and certified medium at Cassadaga, Rev. Davis has noted a shift in the way people view those in her profession. During the 1970s and 1980s, acceptance was not as high as today, she said, adding, I got into the work when you didnt get into this work.Touching the ethereal Sances and calling on spirits to show themselves or materialization has been an answer for those wanting to know about loved ones or seeking some higher truth. While physical mediums were popular in the late 1800s to early 1900s, today focus has shifted from tipping tables, voices and apparitions to more intuitive mediumship. Its not what it used to be, said Rev. Don Zanghi, a physical medium and teacher. The loosened hold of churches coupled with freer thinking has led more individuals to seek less physical affirmation of the spiritual world and more mental guidance, he said. Though Rev. Zanghi still performs sances from time to time, he spends more time teaching. Its as much learning about yourself, he said. But when an occasional haunting issue comes his way, the street-smart New Yorker does not shy away from putting a mischievous or troubled disembodied spirit in his or her place. I am a specialist, he said. I am doing Gods work. And often, he finds that haunting issues revolve around a living being rather than a departed soul. Talking to the dead? Scaring off ghosts? Bringing Grandma back for a visit in a sance? These are not everyday tasks for the average soul. But Rev. Zanghi just smiles and shakes his head. Youve got to be strong in this kind of work, he said.

Recently, Wall Street and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs created Fantex Holdings, which will allow investors to buy actual pieces of real players namely, rights to 20 percent of the players lifetime earnings (including licensing and product endorsement deals). The firm told The New York Times in October that it will soon stage an IPO for budding NFL star Arian Foster and hopes to sign up many more athletes, plus singers and actors similarly early in their careers. (On the other hand, Fantexs lawyers drew up a 37-page list of potential investment risks, such as injuries, slumps and scandals and the fact that the stock will trade only on Fantexs private exchange.) Cultural diversity For Japanese boys, the train driver sits alongside footballer, doctor and policeman as a dream job, according to a September Agence France-Presse dispatch, and consequently, the system for the Tokyo metro area (covering 35 million people) runs with the precision of a finely crafted Swiss watch, where delays, even for as long as a minute, seldom occur. (When they do occur, operators repeatedly apologize and hand out notes from home to commuters to present to their bosses to excuse the tardiness.) Among the systems drawbacks is the still-irksome groping of females on packed rush-hour trains, when operators routinely shove as many as 300 riders into cars designed for 150. Among the surprising legacies of the oppressions of communist East Germany is modern-day Germanys commonplace clothing-optional lifestyle (FKK, or Freikoerperkultur free body culture). A September Global Post dispatch counted hundreds of FKK beaches across the country and referenced a turned-up snapshot (not yet authenticated) of a young Angela Merkel frolicking nude in the 1960s or 1970s. Foreigners occasionally undergo culture shock at German hotels saunas and swimming pools, at which swimsuits are discouraged (as unhygienic). In December China joined only a handful of countries (and 29 U.S. states) by strengthening the rights of elderly parents to demand support from their adult children not only financially (which has been the law for more than a decade) but now allowing lawsuits by parents who feel emotionally ignored, as well. An October Associated Press feature on one rural extended family dramatized Chinas cultural shift away from its proverbial first virtue of family honor. Zhang Zefang, 94, said she did not even understand the concept of lawsuit when a local official explained it, but only that she deserved better from the children she had raised and who now allegedly resent her neediness. (A village court promptly ordered several family members to contribute support for Ms. Zefang.) Latest religious messages Recent separate testings in 21 springs in Austria and 18 fonts in Vienna yielded a conclusion that 86 percent of the holy water in the countrys churches was not safe to drink most commonly infected with diarrhea-causing E.coli and Campylobacter. University of Vienna researchers found samples with up to 62 million bacteria per milliliter of water, and the busier the church, the higher the count. Various studies show churchgoers to be happier, more optimistic and healthier than other people, leading some atheists and agnostics to wonder whether the church experience could be fruitfully replicated but minus the belief in God. Hence, the Sunday Assembly was created in London, and has now spread to New York City and Melbourne, Australia, with 18 other hoped-for openings by years end, according to a September report in The Week. Founders seek such benefits as a sense of community, a thought-provoking (secular) sermon, group singing and an ethos of self-improvement, exemplified by the motto live better, help often, wonder more, and they hope that eventually Sunday Assembly will organize Sunday school, weddings, funerals and nonreligious baptisms. First Things First: An alleged drug ring in the Brooklyn, N.Y., neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay was busted in September after police cracked a stream of Internet messages offering heroin (called DOB) and cocaine (white girl). Among the messages was one sent at 6:45 one Friday evening advising customers that they had 5 minutes to get their orders in for the weekend because the sellers would obediently shut down at 7:30 (i.e., sundown) for the Jewish sabbath. Questionable judgments Los Angeles Animal Services has proposed that the city be established as a Sanctuary City of Feral Cats and that cats should be an exception to property owners right to evict animals causing damage. Under the L.A. City Feral Cat Program, reported OpposingViews.com, felines will gain an inherent right to be on residential or commercial property. Animal Services believes that an enhanced spaying program will eliminate most feral-cat problems, including somehow their toileting excesses and their killing of neighborhood songbirds. You hired a convicted prostitute and thief to handle state money? asked an incredulous Connecticut state legislator in September when he learned that Suki Handly had been employed from 2008 to 2012 passing out welfare benefits in the states Manchester distribution center and that $44,000 was missing. Furthermore, Ms. Handly and two others had been found guilty of theft in Connecticut in 2010, yet word of her prostitution and 2010 convictions were not known to state investigators until a chance audit in 2012. (State hiring offices of course promised to strengthen background checks.)

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 Charting the evolution of The Immokalee FoundationEducation is key to empowering farming communitys young residentsFor the past 22 years, The Immokalee Foundation has been dedicated to empowering Immokalees children. Through programs focused on education, vocation and life skills, the foundation works with each child to develop a plan that nurtures his or her development as a student, citizen and future professional. It all began in 1991, when Parker Collier and several Naples residents founded TIF with the goal of improving the future of Immokalees youth by making people aware of their struggles and garnering enough financial support to make a difference in their lives. With Mrs. Colliers leadership and the generous help of philanthropic citizens, companies and institutions, TIF soon began to commit financial assistance to initiatives in education, career development and health care in Immokalee contributions that would not only benefit the kids, but also the community as a whole. In the latter part of the 1990s, TIF began concentrating its efforts more on education. Believing that education was an integral part of the economic development of Immokalee, the board commissioned a study to uncover and analyze the weaknesses that prevented the children of the farming community from attaining a post-secondary admission and/or achieving academic success. The results were disturbing: The report showed that approximately 65 percent of Immokalee children who entered kindergarten dropped out of school before high school graduation, and 60 percent of all elementary school students (75 percent within the sixth, eighth and 10th grades) scored at the lowest levels on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Additionally, only 41 percent of high school graduates had any post-secondary plans. Clearly, after-school programs, early childhood intervention and career and college training needed to be implemented. Subsequently, TIF began to transform. What started out as a grant-awarding organization has expanded into a nonprofit focused on educational programs designed to give children the tools to believe and then achieve. TIFs partnership with Take Stock in Children, a statewide scholarship and mentoring program, solidified TIFs new educational path. But this was only the beginning of a whole new journey one that gave TIF the opportunity to take a closer look at other programs that would benefit Immokalees youth. By 2009, TIF had implemented multiple programs emphasizing education, leadership and other life skills. Those programs now serve more than 700 students and include TSIC, Immokalee Readers, Career Development and College Success. Each is essential to the mission of the organization. TSIC helps increase high school graduation rates by holding students to a pledge to stay out of trouble, keep their grades up and meet regularly with their volunteer mentor. Immokalee Readers is an early reading intervention program targeted to improve the reading skills of the bottom 17 percent performers on the FCAT state achievement assessment test of children from kindergarten through second grade. Led by certified teachers and supplemented with high school age tutors, the program is currently implemented in three Immokalee elementary schools. Through the Career Development program, TIF aims to increase awareness and knowledge of career paths through an array of panel discussions, seminars and industry-targeted tours. With scholarship support for training, the program helps students complete the journey of becoming economically independent. In 2010, through a partnership between TIF and the Fites Family Charitable Trust, Kelly Tractor and Caterpillar Foundation, a new training program for heavy equipment technicians began at the iTECH center in Immokalee. The program has led to graduates gaining employment in high-paying careers. Lastly, TIFs College Success program provides ongoing mentorship and support for students on a post-secondary path, helping them to set up individual academic plans to ensure graduation. Today, 100 percent of the students who participate in TIF programs graduate from high school and 97 percent of those students go on to a college or vocational post-secondary path. Every person, family and organization that supports TIF plays a vital role not only on the foundations prosperity, but in the academic success of the children of Immokalee. After all, that is the mission. For more information about TIF, including how to volunteer as a mentor, call 430-9122 or visit www.immokaleefoundation.org.

One in nine of us will experience some form of substance abuse. When a family member, friend or coworker battles a mental health or substance abuse problem, we suffer with them. Thankfully, David Lawrence Center is here for our community.

When you or someone you love needs help, call on the highly compassionate, committed and competent professionals of the David Lawrence Center to inspire you to move beyond the crisis towards life-changing wellness. Mental health is a community issue. Fortunately, theres a community solution. His Mind is Our Concern.Clint was a happy kid with a loving family and dreams of being a reghter. But mixing with a bad crowd led him down a destructive path that escalated to a devastating addiction and a drug arrest that made his life unravel. Financial burden and the mental, physical and emotional pain of nearly losing their son tore his family apart. When he was admitted to DLC for detox and residential treatment, he was a 28-year-old broken man with little hope. But he was committed to his recovery, actively engaged in group and leaned on the staff for guidance. He stays sober, honest and humble by attending 12-step meetings. With a new lease on life and a strong support system, Clint is happier than hes ever been and his family is overwhelmed with gratitude.DavidLawrenceCenter.org NAPLES 239-455-8500 IMMOKALEE 239-657-4434 FOR MENTAL WELLNESS Time on your hands?

These dollars went toward a variety of programs and charities outside and within Collier County, including 28 local nonprofits that received a total of $150,000 through a new matching endowment grant program initiated by Eileen ConnollyKeesler, foundation president and CEO. Endowment funds establish a safeguard against changing economic conditions, Ms. Connolly-Keesler says, adding, They can support an agencys administrative activities or special programs in perpetuity. The matching endowment grant program required a $5,000 investment by the nonprofit. The Community Foundation matched to create an agency endowment fund, which must maintain a minimum balance of $10,000 and must be held at the Community Foundation. The initial recipients are: Able Academy, Boys & Girls Club of Collier County, Cancer Alliance of Naples, Care Club of Collier County, Champions For Learning, Classical South Florida, Community School of Naples, Big Cypress Chapter NSDAR, Friends of Foster Children, Friends of Rookery Bay, Fun Time Early Childhood Academy, Goodwill Industries of SWFL, Grace Place for Children & Families, Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, Harry Chapin Food Bank, Jewish Family & Communithy Services, Junior Achievement of SWFL, Marco Island Center for the Arts, The Marco Players, the Mental Health Association of SWFL, Naples Historical Society, GFWC Naples Junior Womens Club, The Naples Players, New Horizons of SWFL, Rotary Club of Naples, St. Ann School Foundation, United Arts Council of Collier County and the Womens Fun of SWFL. In the past, only very large nonprofits held endowments and those nonprofits were considered overfunded. Therefore obtaining funding from donors and foundations was very difficult. Today, endowments are being more widely accepted for their sustainability benefits for organizations of all sizes, and donors increasingly want to fund nonprofits that are thinking about the future. Although the Community Foundations first quarter matching endowment grants have all been awarded, additional endowment building opportunities might become available in the future. For more information about grant programs administered by the Community Foundation of Collier County, call 649-5000 or visit www.cfcollier.org/ nonprofits/apply-for-grants/.

Friends of Foster Children honoredFriends of Foster Children of Southwest Florida received the Community Advocate of the Year award for the 20th Judicial Circuit, presented by the statewide Guardian ad Litem office in Tallahassee. FFC was honored for its outstanding advocacy on behalf of Floridas abused and neglected children. The Guardian ad Litem Foundation promotes statewide Guardian ad Litem volunteer recruitment and retention through a variety of activities. It hosts an annually awards banquet to celebrate the achievements and honor the commitment of the volunteers and community advocates from each of the 20 judicial circuits. Doug Campbell, FFC board president, accepted the award on behalf of the organizations volunteers and staff. He noted that the FFC values collaboration with others in the community and often assists with funding alongside other agencies. By pooling resources with others, the children benefit the most. When children are removed from their homes due to abandonment, serious neglect or abuse, it is often with nothing more than the clothes they are wearing or meager belongings stuffed into garbage bags, says Jane Billings, FFC executive director. FFC recognizes that these children deserve to have their childhood kept intact and provides them with opportunities to become successful and strong adults. With a focus on filling in the gaps in the state system, FFCs support ranges from tutoring or after-school programs to enrichment activities that nurture the childs talents and passions. For more information, call 262-1808 or visit www.friendsoffosterchildren.net. NCEF receives governors accoladesThe Naples Children & Education Foundation has received the Community Leadership Award from the Governors Children and Youth Cabinet.

NCEF has served more than 150,000 children through annual grants given to worthy organizations and seven major strategic initiatives. Ms. Malone said the foundation achieves its success governed by good will, using objective research to assess needs and shunning red tape. State Rep. Kathleen Passidomo nominated NCEF for this recognition based on the organizations comprehensive study and subsequent giving strategy that guides the rigorous grant making process.

The recent field trip helped marked the formal launch of the institute, which offers programs and workshops for K-12 students and teachers. STEM is a nationwide educational initiative designed to boost the science literacy of Americas youth, an area in which they lag behind youth in other developed countries. The STEM Institute at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida is in partnership with Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Whitaker Center for STEM Education and the school district. Last weeks field trip drew rave reviews from the students from Immokalees Eden Park Elementary School and their teacher, Maureen Sturtz. The students used the latest in scientific technology in the Ferguson Learning Lab at the Conservancy and learned about animals and their outdoor habitats at the Nature Center. They also ventured to the Shotwell Wavering Filter Marsh, where they collected aquatic organisms and water samples to measure how effectively the marsh reduces pollution. The filter marsh was a big hit with Abigail Mendoza, 9, whose only regret was wet feet and not remembering to bring an extra pair of shoes. Weve seen a fish and I found algae and theyre so tiny you can barely see them, she said. Jesus Pablo-Felixs interest in a sciencerelated career was heightened by the field trip. Its fun because were catching some fish and discovering new things, the 9-year-old said. The field trip started with a welcome to the students from, among others, Conservancy President and CEO Rob Moher and Matt Mucci of AT&T, which provided a $107,500 leadership grant to fund curriculum development, educational field trips and computer technology. Mr. Moher cited statistics that illustrate the importance of STEM programs to the countrys future: The United States ranks 48th out of 133 developed and developing nations in quality of math and science instruction. Florida ranks 50th (out of 50 states and Washington, D.C.) on the ACT tests science section, ahead of only Mississippi. The United States ranks 27th out of 29 wealthy countries in the proportion of college students with degrees in science or engineering. STEM professionals account for nine of the top 10 salaries amongst recent graduates in the U.S. Weve been working on this for two years, laying the groundwork, teaching training, buying the equipment, getting the curriculum in, said Mr. Moher, who was instrumental in the $38.8 million fundraising campaign that helped make renovations and enhancements at the Conservancy Nature Center possible. AT&Ts STEM focus is part of the companys AT&T Aspire program, a $350 million initiative started in 2008 to help increase high school graduation rates, preThird-graders from Eden Park Elementary School in Immokalee wade in the Shotwell Wavering Filter Marsh.COURTESY PHOTOSDavid Webb and Irene Giniat of the Conservancy and Matt Mucci of AT&T join students to observe their findings in the Ferguson Learning Lab.SEE STEM, A21 Serving Naples the finest products for over 70 years.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 HEALTHY LIVINGUF survey: Adults lack basic knowledge on caloric intake THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAAdults generally dont know how many calories they should consume daily to maintain their current weight, according to a new University of Florida survey, but that might not be a bad thing. Thats because knowing ones calorie needs can be a double-edged sword, says Cassie R owe, who worked on the survey as a graduate student and is now a study coordinator at UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. On one hand, it may allow people to balance energy intake with physical activity to manage their weight, Ms. Rowe says. On the other hand, I think most Americans get bogged down by the numbers. In this respect, knowing your calorie needs may lead to unnecessary stress surrounding counting calories. Calorie postings on restaurant menu boards were an impetus for the study, she says, adding, Do people even know what they mean? Are they going to have any context? Researchers surveyed 978 people of varying heights and weights from a cross-section of demographic groups, mostly on the UF campus. The survey found that people of all body mass indexes underestimate their daily energy requirements. Graduate students in the masters dietetic internship program in UFs Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition conducted the survey as a class project for their professor, Bobbi Langkamp-Henken. The survey, conducted in early 2011, is published in the current issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior. Survey respondents answered 10 questions, including their height, weight and level of exercise. Based on those answers, researchers calculated how many calories the respondents needed daily, the research papers lead author, Lauren Headrick, says. Shes now state coordinator for Floridas Farm to School Partnership. What was so interesting in our study is, people underestimated their needs across the board, showing a clear lack of knowledge surrounding calories, Ms. Headrick says. Heres an example of the surveys results: Most people who need, for example, 2,000 calories a day, think they should only consume 1,500. This finding gives dietitians pause, Ms. Langkamp-Henken says, because if people learn their actual caloric needs are higher than they thought, they might be tempted to eat more than they normally would. On the nutrition facts panel of all food labels, the standard is 2,000 calories a day, although an individuals needs can be different, depending on their age, size and exercise habits. To the researchers surprise, they noted that people who are obese underestimated their caloric needs the most. But Ms. Langkamp-Henken offers a possible explanation: If they underestimate how much they need, its probably because theyve tried dieting in the past and gotten discouraged and realize it takes a whole lot of restriction of your intake to lose some weight. Luncheon will focus on womens issues regarding addictionWomen and Addiction, a free luncheon and continuing education program about the unique alcohol and drug addiction issues that women face in treatment and ongoing recovery, is set for noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Hazelden in Naples. All are welcome. Two free CEUs will be awarded. Brenda Iliff, executive director of Hazelden in Naples, will discuss how women generally progress faster in addiction than men, face different barriers in getting help and recover differently. Recognizing these differences can be critical in recognizing addiction and determining treatment.

Cancer research efforts reorganized21st Century Oncology will more closely combine cancer research initiatives with Massachusetts General Hospital, the original teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, when the National Cancer Institute implements a reorganized cooperative structure in February. The reorganization will combine three specialized oncology research bodies into one clinical research collective known as NGR Oncology. 21st Century Oncology is conducting clinical research trials at sites across the country and assessing the effectiveness of various cancer treatments.

HEALTHY LIVINGThe 55th annual Hospital Ball: A night of NCH honorsWe honored more than a few heroes at the 55th annual NCH Ball recently at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort. The evenings celebration was dedicated to expansion and renovation of the Pediatric Emergency Department at our North Naples campus. Our growing community now has more than 80,000 children under age 18. This past year we served a record 17,000 children in the North Naples ER, an increase of 33 percent since 2008. Plans for the new ER, which separates children and adults, have 12 patient rooms, two trauma rooms for children and a pediatric waiting room with a state-of-the-art entertainment center to engage all ages. At the ball, we announced a $6 million gift from our board chair and her family and the naming of the Robert, Mariann and Megan MacDonald Pediatric Emergency Department. This is the MacDonald familys second major gift to NCH. The standing ovation they received from the 500 attendees was richly deserved. Our 2013 Physician of the Year award, sponsored by Herb and Mary Ehlers and voted on by the medical staff, resulted in a tie for the top honor between Dr. Deborah Lopez and Dr. Alberto de la Rivaherrera. Drs. Paul Jones, Ken Plunkitt, Carlos Quintero, Dennis Stapleton and Justin Warner were also recognized. Our 2013 Nurses of the Year were Elizabeth Foster and Stephen Taylor. And the 2013 Compass Award winners, nominated by NCH employees for their compassion, were Drs. Damian McGovern and Charina Yango-Cadavos. We also honored Mary Jane Briggs, who served as this years Honorary Ball Chair. The Briggs family has supported NCH and the community at large in countless ways for more than half a century. Finally, the evenings unsung heroes were the Hospital Ball Committee members, led by co-chairs Sen. Garrett and Diana Richter, auction chair Pat Schultz and sponsorship chair John Clough. The night was one of inspiration and synergy. The national health-care environment might be maddeningly uncertain, but here in Southwest Florida we enjoy the constant of a competent, caring community that takes seriously its obligations to maintain and sustain high quality, local health care. NCH would not be what we are today without the support of our community. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org

With the help of banks such as J.P. Morgan Chase, financial donations and thousands of local volunteers, the organization has provided 17 homes for heroes around the country so far this year; plans are for 25 homes next year. The Hernandezs home in Victoria Park should be ready for occupancy the first week in December. Weve got a lot of work to do in a few weeks, says Bruce Fields, senior vice president and division manager for Manhattan Construction Company, which is managing the total makeover project. Andy called me one day and told me Brents story and it really touched me, Mr. Fields adds. Its a very minuscule way for us to say thanks to Sgt. Hernandez for his service. For every $1 Building Homes for Heroes receives in donations, it gets $3 in support from local contractors, Mr. Pujol says. Its just an indication of how many contractors there are in this country that want to help. Our biggest wish is dollar support because thats the only thing holding us back from ultimately becoming the most respected military charity in the country, which is our goal. Last week the Hernandez family attended a media hard hat day to take a look at their future home before the repairs and upgrades are completed. Just being able to go into the house and meet all the designers, the contractors, the electricians, the plumbers and say thank you to everybody it was just extremely exciting for me and my family, Sgt. Hernandez said via a phone call while the family traveled back to Georgia last Friday to begin packing for the move. Debilitating pain is one of the things he struggles with as a result of his injuries, but hes learning to manage it.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhoever said that getting old isnt for sissies knew what she was talking about. All of us, including our dogs and cats, find that as we age, our bodies just dont work as well as they used to. Eye diseases are among the most commonly seen problems in older dogs and cats. One change you may notice is a condition called lenticular sclerosis, or nuclear sclerosis. That bluish haze you may see in a pets eyes isnt cataracts, as is often suspected, but the result of a normal aging of the lens. The good news is that it doesnt affect vision and doesnt require any treatment. Cataracts are cloudy spots on the normally transparent lens of the eye. They look like a milky gray film behind the pupil. Cataracts may start to appear when dogs are 6 years old to 8 years old and can eventually lead to blindness. Dogs rely more on scent than sight, however, and they can get around very well simply by using their noses as long as you dont move the furniture. If your dogs cataracts are so bad that hes running into things, ask your veterinarian about cataract surgery. Older cats rarely develop cataracts. They are more likely to suffer vision loss from retinal diseases, uveitis (a painful inflammation of certain eye structures) or glaucoma. Like dogs, cats adapt well to vision loss. They compensate by relying more on their hearing or their whiskers. Other age-related vision problems, such as keratoconjunctivitis sicca, better known as dry eye, require aggressive treatment. Tears, which are produced by the lacrimal glands, lubricate, protect and cleanse the eye. Tear production tends to decrease with age. If that happens, the eye becomes dry and irritated. It starts to produce more mucus, causing a goopy discharge. Dry eyes are itchy, and dogs may scratch at them or rub them on the carpet in an attempt to relieve the itch. Dogs with dry eye are also more likely to develop corneal ulcers. Dry eye is diagnosed with a Schirmer tear test. The veterinarian places a tiny paper strip at the inner corner of the eye, where the tears pool, and holds it there for one minute to see how much of the strip becomes wetted with tears. If the result indicates that tear production is below normal, the animal likely has dry eye. Dry eye is less common in cats than in dogs. Depending on the condition of the eye, your veterinarian may prescribe artificial tears (not saline solution), antibiotic eye drops or an immunosuppressant drug that stimulates tear production. This helps to keep the dog comfortable and the cornea healthy. The medication may need to be compounded at a special pharmacy. Glaucoma is an increase in pressure within the eye. It can develop quickly and is extremely painful. If your pet is squinting and the eye is tearing and feels harder than normal, consider it an emergency. A dog or cat with an acute case of glaucoma can lose his eyesight within 48 hours if the condition isnt treated immediately. Take your dog to the veterinarian for an eye exam any time you notice the following signs: Redness Cloudiness Discharge Opaque or whitish film over the eye Tearing, squinting, pawing at the eye or other signs of pain Sensitivity to light An unusually soft or hard eye A swollen, crusty or itchy eyelid A bulging or sunken eye If you notice that your pets vision is not as keen as it used to be, dont simply chalk it up to old age. Oftentimes, medication or other treatment can help, especially if the problem is diagnosed early. Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss in older dogs, but they usually dont require surgical removal unless the dog is having trouble getting around. >> Charlie is a handsome, affectionate guy whos about 7 years old.

For years, all I had was a VCR and a CD player, and I liked it that way. I did get a DVD player just before Todd and I met and that was only because I was gifted with the boxed set of Sex and The City: Season One. All of my ancient devices have since been sold ($7 for the DVD player at a garage sale a couple of years ago) or donated (I wonder which Goodwill shopper bought all my VHS recordings of The Sopranos?). And last week, when Todd bought Apple TV, our BluRay/DVD fancy-schmancy device was relegated to the closet when he realized he didnt have enough HDMI plugs to hook up the next generation of technology. I didnt even know we had a Blu-Ray player. This is what happens when you live with a man. Men have different eyes, and they need things to be sharper and clearer. I tend to think that they have different ears, too, because not only must they have everything in HD (thats high definition. Trust me, if it werent for Todd, I wouldnt know what that stood for. I might think hair day, as in Im having a bad HD), they must also have surround sound. The truth is, when we got our HD television set (yes, I still say television set Im 100-years old) a couple of years ago, I didnt get the attraction. Todd kept pointing at the screen animatedly, Dont you SEE?! Its a HUGE difference! All I could do was acknowledge that it was definitely a bigger set and took up more room; but after a few months, I was at a friends house watching her normal TV and I had to squint. The picture was so blurry. Is something wrong with your television set? I asked her. Why cant I see all the pores on the actors faces or the tiny blonde hairs on the tops of their hands? Now I have special eyes, too. I need Prism and color molecules and sharpness. And because I have a husband and my husband has a Best Buy card, we have a gazillion cable channels, a DVR box with movies OnDemand, Amazon TV, Hulu Plus, X-Box, a Roku player with streaming Netflix and, now, the aforementioned Apple TV which, says Todd, shall allow us to play anything off of our iPads (including our downloaded music) onto our TV. And itll be in HD and surround sound. Seriously, it all makes me dizzy and I dont even know which remote operates which machine. But I can still remember back when I replaced my VCR with my shiny DVD player and put the VCR in a hall closet a hall closet that contained some 50 mix taped cassettes from the late 1980s that I couldnt bear to part with. Now they can keep the Blu-Ray player company. Naples film festCraving a REALLY big screen? Well, youre in luck.

Today, more employers are monitoring their workers, tapping into GPS and company-issued cell phones and laptops to ensure employees are exactly where theyre supposed to be and not abusing the freedom of working away from an office. The move makes sense for companies whose workforce is primarily out in the field, often driving employer-owned vehicles. Technology allows employers and supervisors to determine if an employee is spending too much time in one location or online. In-office employees tend to have direct supervisors who can pop into an office at any given moment to make sure theyre not posting pictures of lunch on Instagram or dissing the boss on Facebook.

In fact, research proves that individual investors are terrible at making investment decisions: they capitulate/sell when already in a bear market and they chase performance in a bull market. In doing so, they wrongly rebalance asset classes within their portfolios at exactly the worst possible times. Individual investors understand the profit premise: Buy low, sell high. Unfortunately, an investors understanding of such does not mean that his or her behavior is in sync. Behavior often is dominated by emotions of greed and fear in bull and bear markets, respectively. Most often effected is the converse of the maxim; the investor proceeds to buy into the market peak (as the investor has a feeling of confidence based on historical gains of the bull) and to sell into market lows (as the investors has a feeling of despair, confusion, or just downright panic based on recent losses of the bear). The poor decision making of investors has been studied by the highly regarded and independent research group, DALBAR. DALBAR analyzed historical purchase and sale patterns and found that: investors move their money in and out of the market at the wrong times, according to Louis Harvey, president of DALBAR. They get excited or they panic, and they hurt themselves. (March 11, 2013, MONEY NEWS, DALBARs Harvey: Individual Investors Brilliant at Mistiming Markets.) How much do they hurt themselves? A DALBAR study of the last 20 years shows that investors in U.S. stock mutual funds earned an average annualized return of 4.25 percent during that period, while the Standard & Poors 500 stock index generated an 8.21 percent return. Some underperformance was attributable to fees but the preponderance of explanation is that individual investors are notorious for exactly mistiming the market in equities markets in general. It stands to reason that if investors are buying equities at market peaks, then they are selling out of some other asset class in order to create investable funds; conversely, if they are dumping equities at market lows, then they are taking proceeds and buying into another class, typically bonds. The poor decision-making of investors has also been studied by mutual funds. In fact, a white paper by Vanguard affirms that individual investors wrongly time equities and bonds for entry and exit. Many (investors) are influenced by capital market performance; this is often evident in market cash flows mirroring what appears to be an emotional response fear or greed rather than a rational one. Investors also can be moved to act by fund advertisements that tout recent outperformance, as if the investor could somehow inherit those historical returns, despite disclaimers stating that past performance is not a guarantee of future results (Vanguard, Advisors Alpha, April 22, 2013). Vanguards historical studies of mutual fund net cash flows show that, after protracted periods of relative outperformance (in one asset class), sizable cash flows tend to follow (into that asset class). The data showed that the peak of equity cycles saw large equity inflows; at the trough of the equity declines, equities are exited and there are large bond inflows. Here are some examples of classic investment wrongdoing. In 1999, near the equity market peak, there was a net inflow of $160 billion into equity funds and a net outflow of $2 billion out of bond funds; in 2000, there was a net inflow of $262 billion into equities and $48 billion out of bonds. In 2001, during the severe equity correction, there was only $70 billion net cash flow into equity funds and $81 billion into bond funds. In 2006 through 2007, there was $464 billion put into equity funds and $182 billion into bond funds. In the period 2009 through 2012, there was $140 billion put into equities and a jaw-dropping $790 billion put into bond funds. How can any investor expect to outperform or just even perform as well as market averages if he buys high and sells low? Answer: he cant. It is a losers game. If investors mistime equities and bonds, might they also mistime other classes, including hedge funds, private equity, real estate, managed futures? Most probably so as these asset classes are not currently making headlines as the hot asset class. Instead of making another ill-timed reallocation, the individual investor should heed the counsel of DALBARs president: The most important thing, once you have a strategy is to find a way to actually stick with it (MONEY NEWS). What investors should really be considering is adding to their position in lackluster asset classes in order to rebalance their portfolios. The next time that you consider rebalancing your portfolio to more heavily weight into a bull market, think about whether you are behaving as a typical individual investor who wants to be riding the winning horse. Jumping from one winning horse to the next generally results in falling off the horse. Consult your adviser as to the suitability of these ideas and consult investment specialists for counsel on specific asset classes.

If not, you might consider looking into it, as the Roth offers potentially massive tax breaks. There are some important issues to consider first, though. Like other IRAs, the Roth lets you accumulate money for retirement and enjoy some tax advantages at the same time. While traditional IRAs are tax-deferred, Roth IRAs are designed to be tax-exempt. Traditional IRAs permit you to contribute pre-tax dollars; Roth IRAs accept only already-taxed dollars. Imagine that beginning at age 40 you invest $5,500 of your post-tax income into a Roth IRA each year. You earn a 10 percent annual return for 25 years until you retire at 65. By then, your contributions would top $540,000. With a Roth, thats your take-home pay, tax-free. If those investments had been made into a regular IRA, youd owe taxes on any withdrawals, paying $81,000 or so, assuming a 15 percent tax bracket during retirement, or $135,000 if youre in a 25 percent bracket. So far, this makes a great case for the Roth. But remember that if the $5,500 had gone directly into a traditional IRA, you would have reaped about $1,375 in tax savings each year at a 25 percent tax rate (more, with a higher tax rate). If that sum were also invested, the total difference between the Roth and the regular IRA would become slimmer. Still, the Roth is a very compelling proposition for many investors. You may be able to roll over, or convert, your traditional IRA into a Roth by paying taxes on it, counting the entire value of the account as income. You can also roll over a 401(k) account into an IRA when you change jobs. There are more benefits and limitations to consider before you decide whether the Roth is for you.Get details at irs.gov, fool. com/retirement or from a tax professional.

Expert LossesMy worst move was listening to expert advice. After experiencing some losses, I decided to use the services of a fancy private banking stock service. On the advice of my stock expert, I sold positions that were winners because I was too heavily loaded on them.I had 20 percent of my $500,000 portfolio in Apple stock at an average cost of $44 and was persuaded to sell around $88. I refuse to calculate what 2,100 shares at around $500 apiece would be worth today. I also had $60,000 in a small mining company. He made me liquidate and keep just 10 percent of that. My remaining $6,000 was sold for $104,000 a year later. L., onlineThe Fool Responds: Its true that many so-called experts may not be too smart or may have conflicts of interest, not always keeping your best interests in mind. Still, it is sensible to not have too much of your portfolio riding on any one stock, as even solid companies can falter. And if that small mining company was a penny stock, as many are, thats very risky, too. 100-Year DividendsThe power of dividends is underappreciated by many investors. Solid, consistent dividends often result in market-beating returns for patient investors. Below are five dividend payers likely to keep it up for a long time: 3M (NYSE: MMM) makes everything from Post-it Notes to protective films for smartphones. Its recent yield of 2.1 percent is better than you can get from five-year Treasuries, and it has been paying its dividend for 97 years. Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE: CL), making staples such as toothpaste and pet food, is growing and profitable. Recently yielding 2.2 percent, it has paid a dividend for 118 years. Procter & Gambles (NYSE: PG) Leadership Brands include Bounty, Charmin, Gillette, Crest and Tide. It recently yielded 3 percent and has been paying dividends for 123 years. DuPont (NYSE: DD) is a giant in chemicals and agriculture. The maker of plastics and other engineered materials recently offered a 3 percent yield and has been paying dividends since 1904. Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) recently yielded 2.6 percent and has been paying dividends for 137 consecutive years. Its poised to benefit from an upturn in the housing market. These companies are not the fastest growers around, but they can reward you over time with their reliable and growing dividends. I trace my roots back to 1905 and the Seat tle C ar Manuf acturing Co., which later became Pacific Car and Foundry Co. Today, based in Bellevue, Wash., Im a key player in light-, mediumand heavyduty trucks, offering vehicles with the Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF nameplates. I also deal in financial services, information technology and truck parts. I even make winches and bus engines. My dealer network spans 1,800 locations in more than 100 nations, and about half of my revenue is generated internationally. During World War II, I built Sherman tanks and steel tugboats, among other things. Who am I? (Answer: PACCAR) Whats the Points?QWhat are mortgage points, and is it smart to pay them? J.M., Bixby, Okla.AA point is 1 percent of a mortgage loan. On a $200,000 loan, one point would be $2,000. There are origination and discount points. Origination points are sometimes charged for originating, or launching, your mortgage. Paying discount points, which lowers your interest rate (and thus your payments), is optional. The idea is that if you cough up a little extra money at the beginning, you can pay less over time. The more points you pay, the lower interest rate you get. Its not always worth it, though. Whether you should pay points depends on how long you expect to stay in the home. If you pay a few points and then sell your home after two years, youll have enjoyed lower monthly payments due to the lower interest rate, but the savings probably wont have made up for the points you paid. For example, if you pay $4,000 in points to save $50 per month, it will take you 80 months, about 6 1/2 years, to break even. Try out various scenarios with online calculators at fool.com/calcs/ calculators.htm and bankrate.com/ calculators.aspx. ***QI know that many index funds, like the Vanguard S&P 500 fund (VFINX), focus on the U.S. stock market. But which ones will expose me to the rest of the world? E.S., Morrisville, N.J.AThere are many, such as funds based on the Vanguard European Stock Index (VEURX), Vanguard Pacific Stock Index (VPACX), Vanguard Emerging Markets Stock Index (VEIEX), Fidelity Spartan International Index (FSIIX), and iShares MSCI EAFE Index (EFA).

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 whereabouts unless theyre physically in the vehicle, riding shotgun. Were just keeping honest people honest, says Tom Rohde, service manager for Fort Myersbased HomeTech, an appliance service and repair company with a fleet of 70 take-home vehicles for employees from Bradenton to Naples. With the price of gas, it can be tempting to run to the store or run here and there. Crowther Roofing does have some checks and guards in place but doesnt monitor employees as much as wed like to, says President Kevin Callans. From being out in the field and being in that position I know there are things people will do, but the cost impact is kind of hard to swallow. Were looking at 300 employees and 200 trucks and $30 a month per vehicle. The math works out to $6,000 a month for employers out of its Fort Myers, Naples, Sarasota and Jupiter locations. Employees are also fully aware supervisors monitor data usage on companyissued cell phones especially now that many service providers no longer offer unlimited data. We know who the high data users are and should be, says Mr. Callans. We also know who the people are who abuse it. Position Logic calls its line of GPS devices asset management solutions. The Naples company, one of Inc. magazines 500 fastest-growing U.S. companies, offers fleetand personnel-tracking services to businesses throughout the world. With most of HomeTechs manpower on the road, theres no way to be allseeing. Its not like a mechanics garage where a supervisor can watch employees, Mr. Rohde says. I put a lot of trust and faith in my service techs. Key times are the beginning and end of the work day. We want to know when employees check out at the end of the day and that theyre not out gallivanting around. Guys will call me and ask if they can stop at a grocery store if theyre going right by it. Like Crowther, HomeTechs IT department has a good feel for how much time techs should spend on their laptops and on a job. One anomaly will send up a red flag and supervisors, says Mr. Rohde, will simply tell the employee whatever youre doing, stop. If someone is doing anything crazy its picked up pretty quick and corrected immediately. Our employees know we dont have tolerance. It also has the capability to monitor websites and e-mails, but doesnt. There have been a couple of times where the employee was using the laptop to play music or the kids got a hold of it. Monitoring has its advantages. Increased productivity was the main reason for HomeTechs move to randomly and spot-monitor the GPS-equipped laptops issued to employees in the field. The laptop is supposed to remain with the vehicle, providing supervisors with location services 24/7. They know theyre being monitored and it keeps them on the up and up, says Mr. Rohde. Knowing an employees whereabouts also improves customer service by narrowing down wait times. No more whiling away that precious 10 to 2 timeslot waiting on the cable tech. GPS allows customer service to pinpoint a drivers exact location and call ahead with a more precise time. It has added cost to the company but weve also seen an improvement on insurance, Mr. Rohde says. There are also fewer excuses for getting lost. I used a map book when I was in field, he says. Technology can be a beautiful thing in finding the shortest route but now if the GPS goes out, some of these guys dont have a clue. Mr. Callans says Crowther Roofing is happy with the status quo for now. We feel we have enough controls though supervision and are OK for the time being, he says. In this day and age, with the everpresent eye in the sky, its always safe to assume somebodys watching. And its not just the boss or the IT department. The public vigilantly reports infractions caused by a vehicle boasting one of those How am I driving? bumper stickers, says Mr. Callans. We get calls all the time. A businesss reputation is also at stake. No exec wants one of his companys logo-emblazoned trucks parked at a bar all night. Guys are out there, roaming around with our vehicles and our names on them, Mr. Rohde says. Trust is part of our hiring process. TRACKINGFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYHomeTech employee Brett Boehmer loads his van. His employer will know exactly where he is as he makes 10 stops during the day. A morning meeting at HomeTech headquarters. We want to know when employees check out at the end of the day and that theyre not out gallivanting around. Guys will call and ask if they can stop at a grocery store if theyre going right by it.Tom Rohde HomeTech service manager

The gift consists of 369 photographs, five 16mm films and several large contour maps of Marco Island development projects. Present at the donation were Shirley English, CEO of the MIAAOR; Gerry Rosenblum, president of the association; Barbara Rosenblum, member of the association; and MIHS representatives Kathy Miracco, board member and chair of the archives committee, and Austin Bell, curator of collections. The photos had been in collections storage at the Marco Island Historical Museum since March 2011, when they were loaned to the MIHS on a temporary basis. A formal deed of gift was signed by both Ms. English and Mr. Rosenblum to finalize the agreement. The photographs are comprised almost entirely of aerial shots of Marco Island, most taken in the early 1980s and 1990s but with some dating as long ago as 1952. These birds eye views offer unique glimpses into Marco Islands development, capturing snapshots in time as the city grew into what it is today. The five films, however, remain a bit of a mystery because the museum does not currently have access to a 16mm projector. With titles such as Marco, Natural Florida and Marco Island Get Away From It All Have It All, the films surely offer an important glimpse into Marco Islands recent history. The MIHS plans to convert these 16mm films into DVDs in order to view their contents and evaluate their suitability for public viewings and future exhibits. The collection will be accessioned, catalogued and preserved at the museum for posterity. 14th annual outlook conference set The 14th annual Southwest Florida Real Estate Outlook Conference is set for 7:30 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Jan. 29, at Harborside Event Center in downtown Fort Myers.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA Tinder convert sings its praisesYou probably know this about me by now: I talk a big game, but my follow-through is not so good. When I recently told a group of girlfriends about Tinder the dating app that lets you scroll through singles in the area they asked over dinner if Id met anyone new. Me? On Tinder? I said. Ladies, please. Ive never tried it. They gave me a collective exasperated look. What are you waiting for? one asked. What was I waiting for? Tinder is ridiculously low-commitment. The app uses your Facebook profile picture a photo thats already public and you scroll through singles as easily as you might flip through real estate. The only way to know if someone likes you is if you both give each other the thumbs-up. From there, you have the option to start chatting online. The only part that felt threatening was actually putting myself out there. Go ahead, one of my friends dared me. So I pulled out my phone, logged in for the first time and tumbled down the Tinder rabbit hole. It was fascinating. And addictive. And perhaps the best thing to happen to dating since birth control. By the end of dinner I had five matches, and by the end of the night I was chatting with three of them. I cant remember ever having such a good haul. I felt like Id stepped into a singles bar where all the awkwardness of first introductions had been stripped away. The conversations flowed naturally and there was none of the hypersexual weirdness I had anticipated. In fact, almost every conversation followed the same format: Where are you from? What brought you to the area? What do you do for a living? Not surprisingly, these are exactly the questions youd ask if you met face-to-face. For someone like me, who is a touch quiet on first meeting, the typed conversation let me relax and open up. I was warmer on Tinder than Ive ever been on a first date. Interestingly, you can still tell a lot about a person from an online conversation. Each of the men I chatted with had his own distinct voice Cuban Etien was chatty, flirtatious and sweet; public defender Brian was inquisitive and to-the-point; Ryan, who I never got far enough with for any identifiers, was too pretentious for my taste. They were, in short, an accurate rep-resentation of the datable male population. I understand that nobodys perfect, and Tinder certainly has its flaws. Age, for one. Most of the people on there skew young some used their prom pictures as their profile photos. I had to scroll through a lot of men under 25 to find any in their 30s. Tinder is also a little too low-commitment. Conversations stop and start based on when people are on their phones, so nailing down any sort of date can take days. And theres always the possibility that the people youre chatting with are not actually who they say they are. But hiccups aside, Tinder sure is a good time. Maybe Ill see you on there. i d A p m artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com a te repre re e e e e e e e e e e e e e re e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e re re e e e e e e e e e e e e re r r e e e e e e e e e e e e r r r e e e e e e e e e e r r r r r re e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e r r e e e e e e e e e e e e r r r r e e e e e e e e e e e e e r r r r r r e e e e e e e e e e e r r r r r r r r r e e e e e e e r r r r r r r r e e e e e e e e e r r r r r r r r re e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e o f th e mal e o n. de r s tand b od y s per d Tinder cer s its flaws.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 they know, to mine their own lives for material, for ideas. But what happens when they appropriate someone elses life for their creative work? When is it homage, and when is it stealing? Where is the line between creative freedom and thievery? Donald Margulies Collected Stories, the seasons opening production in the black box theater at Florida Repertory Theatre, examines these questions when Lisa (Deanna Gibson), the protg of Ruth (Sara Morsey), a published author and professor, takes a private incident from Ruths life a youthful love affair with the poet Delmore Schwartz and turns it into a novel. While Lisa feels she was merely doing what Ruth had instructed her to do as a writer (You cant censor your creative impulses because of the danger of hurting someones feelings) and says she did it to honor her, Ruth feels betrayed. Some things you dont touch, the teacher tells her student.Work with staying powerMr. Margulies awards and honors are too many to list, but a highlight of his career is the Pulitzer Prize for Drama he won in 2000 for his play Dinner With Friends. Collected Stories and Sight Unseen were Pulitzer finalists in 1997 and 1992, respectively. And his works have staying power. Primary Stages in New York just closed a revival of his The Model Apartment, and an Off-Broadway revival of Dinner with Friends will begin early in the New Year at the Roundabouts Laura Pels Theater. Mr. Margulies plays are popular with Southwest Florida audiences as well: Florida Rep has staged Dinner With Friends and Time Stands Still. The Naples Players have also performed Dinner With Friends, and Theatre Conspiracy has staged Shipwrecked! An Entertainment The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (As Told by Himself). The playwright believes Collected Stories has resonated with audiences all over the world because it allows them to watch the relationship between Ruth and Lisa evolve over the course of several years. And they can relate to it themselves. Weve all been in situations of being under the wing of a mentor, or we have been the mentor, Mr. Margulies says. I think that there comes a time in those relationships, even the parent/ child relationship, where you sort of switch places, and the acolyte (now becomes) the primary achiever. Does Lisa betray Ruth? That may intrinsically be a betrayal of sorts, he says of Lisas choice to write about Ruths affair. Time and age, he says, are also betrayers. Age always seems like such an affront, an outrage. But, he adds, Clearly, Ruths time had passed, and Lisas time was just beginning. It was Lisas time in the spotlight. The play, he says, came from different places. In 1993, the author David Leavitt was sued by the British poet Stephen Spender for copyright infringement over the publication of his novel, While England Sleeps. Mr. Margulies was fascinated by the incident. He took a chapter of Spenders autobiography as inspiration and, he felt, brought it into the 20th century, in terms of the sexuality of it, which seemed veiled because of the constraints of the time in which it was written, he explains. He made it much more explicit much to Spenders dismay. Mr. Leavitts publisher wound up withdrawing the book, and two years later, a different publisher released a revised version. Also, when Mr. Margulies started writing Collected Stories, he was fairly new to teaching. (He is a professor of English and theater studies at Yale University.) As a newly minted professor, he wanted to capture the teacher-student dynamic in his play as well. Now hes older than the character, but when he created Ruth, he says, It seemed she was far ahead of me. Another influence for Collected Stories was the question of where stories and art come from. Art comes from real life, but has been transmogrified into something else, he says. Thats something that has always interested me. In his play Brooklyn Boy, a novelists friends and family dont understand how things from life get transformed into art and insist they know who the people in the novel really are. Although the novelist is writing, from what he knew, what he grew up with, Mr. Margulies says, its not just picking somebodys pocket. Its taking the essence of someone and reconfiguring it, so it becomes a story you can (make all your own and shape how you want).Common themesThe action in Collected Stories takes place over six years. In each scene, we see different colorations in each of the women, Mr. Marguiles says. Its important to not play the same note. Youre given these different snapshots over time, between these people. Youre getting a progression of time, in subtle and more obvious (ways) in their relationship. I think part of the audiences pleasure in the play is that things emerge in Collected Stories, and then you see them pay off. Things happen in unexpected ways. He points out that Lisa draws out Ruths story about her affair with Delmore Schwartz after the two women have a spat. Thats rooted in the kind of complicated relationship they have, he says. And I think thats like life: Things happen in unexpected ways. You cant contrive them to happen; they happen, and maybe six months later, there are reverberations. While the play is a two-hander, Delmore Schwartz is the third person in the play, Mr. Margulies says. This presented itself to me as a twohander, that particular dynamic over the course of years. This is where the focus, my intent as a writer, was on the examination of this relationship, he says. Bringing in Delmore Schwartz as an object of contention between the two women is one of the things that give the play its dynamism and conflict, he adds. Even though hes not physically present, he is bartered over. The memory of this man is very present tense. After writing plays for more than 30 years, certain themes crop up again and again unconsciously, he says. Loss is the theme that permeates most everything Ive written. Every title of mine has to do with the effect of time on people and how relationships change which in itself is a kind of loss, a loss of what is dependable, and what is considered eternal and turns out not to be. Mr. Margulies calls his current work in progress, a play titled The Country House, his Chekhovian pastoral. It will premiere at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles next spring. Its very much about grieving, he says. So Im touching on loss again. In Collected Stories, its about Ruths loss of power, or her artistic power, her vitality, her creative juices. I think that in any kind of metamorphosis, there is loss. You lose a sense of dependability and normalcy.

What are the basics of the craft this Pulitzer Prizewinner wants his playwriting students to learn? Im always talking with them about what is the event of the scene, the event of this play? Why is this night different from all other nights the Passover question, he jokes. Drama requires that element, that uniqueness, to make it stage-worthy. Why are we seeing this drama today? What if we looked at it yesterday or tomorrow? What would that look like? What is different today? What has changed? What makes this a story worth telling? Some of (what I teach) is extremely fundamental (For example,) you have to have conflict to have drama, people wanting different things. I love teaching these very bright young people. Theyre just terrific.

ARTS COMMENTARYWhat are we going to do about Mother?For many, there are probably no four words in the human language scarier than: Moms coming to visit. Except for maybe these six: Moms coming to live with us. In Social Security, playing at the Florida Repertory Theatre through Nov. 20, two sisters grapple with the age-old problem of What To Do About Mom. And what a mother Sophie is: relentlessly demanding, critical and needy, and, like all of us, full of quirks that have only grown stronger and stranger as the years have accumulated. Like King Kong beating his chest or Beowulf pounding on the castle door, you hear Sophie before you meet her: Bam! Bam! Bam! It sounds as if shes turned into the Hulk and is hurling her walker against the door. But Ann D. Hurst portrays Sophie with a mischievous charm. Her maternal torment is more passive aggressive. Im not sure if this is director Robert Cacioppos intention or playwright Andrew Bergmans direction, but you get the feeling that the 80-something Sophie would gum you to death rather than bite your head off. I found myself liking the woman from the get-go, rather than feeling dismayed about how she was terrorizing her family. While Ms. Hurst has many wonderful moments on stage, one of the comedic highlights has to be when we get a glimpse of her in her underwear (though some may feel as though they want to bleach their eyeballs afterwards.) Shes wearing one of those bullet-shaped, industrial white bras from the s, as well as a garter belt girdle that holds up beige stockings on her scrawny chicken legs. (Bravo to costume designer Roberta Malcolm.) This is the type of play where cotton housecoats and turbans, pocket protectors and pocketbooks reign. The clothing says a lot about the characters. For example, Barbara (Kate Hampton) wears a hot red dress while her sister, Trudy (Carrie Lund), is spectacularly dowdy in a practical, buttonedup pants suit. Trudys accountant husband, Martin (Mark Lainer), wears a plain brown suit, while Barbaras husband, David (David Breitbarth), sports a shiny gray suit apropos of his rather slick and showy ways. Its difficult to write about Social Security without giving too much away. Its a light souffl of a play that takes some unusual turns in plot and tone. But to give away the details will spoil the fun. Suffice it to say that it opens with Barbara and David in their Upper East Side home in Manhattan. Hes an art dealer, and their living room (designed with understated elegance by Richard Crowell) has abstract paintings on the wall and modern sculpture tastefully scattered about. Barbaras sister has called to say she and her husband would be stopping by to talk with them, as they have something to discuss. And Barbara is in a tizzy about it. She flits about, working herself into a state. Ms. Hampton is perfect at playing this manic woman, a jumble of nerves and anxieties. David, on the other hand, is sardonic and more laid-back. He claims flirting is his professions obligation, but its just an excuse for his roving eye. He even fantasizes about his college-age niece, which is a little creepy. The play starts slow, with the couple worrying about the impending visit from Barbaras sister and brother-inlaw. But once the second couple arrives, the play takes off. On opening night Ms. Lund received gales of laughter just by walking through the door, her pocketbook clutched with both hands, and saying Hello in a flat, deadpan delivery. Shes so dour, she makes Grant Woods American Gothic couple look downright giddy. And while its her mother, Sophie, who chews on sourballs then leaves them in unusual places, Trudy looks as if shes ingested an entire can all at once. Ms. Lunds comedic timing and delivery are impeccable, her Trudy marvelously prickly and perpetually dissatisfied. Mr. Lainer, who plays her husband, gets major comedy points for making a boring character funny. Like his wife, he is a by-the-book type of guy, without one iota of imagination or whimsy. And David S. Howard, a Florida Rep favorite, has a small but pivotal role as Maurice Koenig, a Chagall-like painter in his late 90s. He plays his character with such charm and adorableness you just want to put your arms around him. Mr. Bergman, who wrote Social Security, also wrote and directed feature films such as The Freshman and Honeymoon in Vegas. He wrote the original story and co-authored the screenplay of Blazing Saddles. The plot of Social Security doesnt hold up to intense scrutiny; its pretty insubstantial, like cotton candy melting on your tongue. But, like cotton candy, its also sweet and enjoyable while being consumed. Under Mr. Cacioppos direction, and with a top-notch cast that knows how to do comedy well especially Ms. Lund, Ms. Hurst and Mr. Breitbarth this play accomplishes what it sets out to do: make you laugh. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOSAbove: Mark Lainer and Carrie Lund.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful about joining a colleagues plan to solve a workplace problem. Investigate it thoroughly. Otherwise, you could find yourself in a predicament with other associates. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Slow down that highpaced whirl youve been on. Spending quiet time alone or with people you care for can be both physically and spiritually restorative. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Make suggestions, not demands. Youll be more successful in getting people to follow your lead if you exercise quiet patience instead of strong persuasion to get your ideas across. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You still need more facts before you can make an informed career choice. One note of caution: Be careful about whom you ask for that information; otherwise, you could be misled. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Changing situations through the end of the week could lead to some challenging opportunities for those perspicacious Pisceans who know how to make them work to their advantage. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although your energy level is high, be careful not to commit to too many projects at this time. Youll do better focusing on just a few tasks rather than spreading yourself too thin. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your heart might be leading you in one direction, but pay attention to your keen Bovine intellect. Im cautioning you to think things through before making any commitments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your serious Twin has been dominant in your life for quite a while. Its time now to let that wilder half take you out for some good times -perhaps with someone very special. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Career aspects are high for Moon Children who make a good impression. Show people not only what you can already do, but also how you can be more valuable to them in the future. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Things start to brighten for the Lions immediate financial future. But be careful to resist the urge to splurge. You need to tuck something away to help you through another tight period. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Having to do too many tasks in too short a time could lower your mood to just above the grumbling level. But if you handle things one at a time, youll get through it all soon enough. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually carefully made holiday plans could be subject to change later this month. Use this week to prepare for that possibility by starting a Plan B just in case you need it. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of being both daring and cautious, traits that could make you a research scientist or maybe even a rocket-ship designer.

YesAlthough initial impressions will rightfully have one believing Last Vegas is The Hangover for old dudes, the analogy is not fair. Yes, both center on bachelor parties in the city of sin, but Last Vegas has a gentler, more grounded tone that makes its characters likable and funny when cracking jokes at the others expense. More importantly, the humor feels natural rather than forced, which means its never so far over the top that it escapes reality. This is a thoroughly enjoyable comedy that makes the most of its premise: At nearly 70 years old, Billy (Michael Douglas) is about to marry a woman (Bre Blair) half his age. When he calls his childhood friends Sam (Kevin Kline) and Archie (Morgan Freeman), they decide to throw a bachelor party in Vegas. They even convince the grumpy fourth member of their old crew, Paddy (Robert De Niro), to join the party. Expectedly, the latter three guys need a jolt of life in their old bones, while Billy needs a reality check regarding what he really wants. When they meet lounge singer Diana (Mary Steenburgen), the past rears its ugly head in interesting ways. What happens in Vegas: Archie has a good roll at the blackjack table, which nets them a posh penthouse suite; they convince a punk teenager (Jerry Ferrara) theyre gangsters; they judge a bikini contest; we get to see Freeman drunk dance, which is hilarious; their bellhop (Romany Malco) gives them his eternal respect; and they throw an epic party thats impressive even by Vegas standards. The five Oscar winners (including Ms. Steenburgen) handle themselves well. Mr. De Niros Paddy is a frustrating old sourpuss, and Mr. Freemans Archie is very funny. But Mr. Klines Sam steals the show with his one-liners and timing. Given that Sam has a hall pass from his wife (Joanna Gleason) and is trying to get laid, Mr. Kline had the most opportunities for fun and he hits on darn near all of them. Credit also goes to writer Dan Fogelman (Cars) and director Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure) for providing structure and storylines. Far too many movies start with an idea Hey, lets send four old dudes to Vegas on a bachelor party but have no clue where to take the story from there. Last Vegas, however, has nicely developed characters and a story that provides them something to do and somewhere to go as people. Given that its funny all the while, Last Vegas is a winner. Deeper than that, though, is the message that you always have to keep living, even when you think youre out of steam. One recalls the great line from Mr. Freemans The Shawshank Redemption: Get busy living, or get busy dying. Sometimes, you forget to capture all that life can offer. Last Vegas is a reminder to never forget.

The clever premise is enjoyable for all ages, with good laughs and crisp animation. Rated PG.Bad Grandpa (Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll, Spike Jonze) Saddled with his young grandson (Mr. Nicoll), 86-year-old Irving Zisman (Mr. Knoxville) decides to drive the boy across country to the boys father. Its essentially a sketch comedy with Mr. Knoxville and Mr. Nicoll having fun with real people via hidden camera, but its never insulting to innocent individuals and is reasonably amusing throughout. Rated R.Escape Plan (Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jim Caviezel) Ray Breslin (Mr. Stallone) makes his living breaking out of high-security prisons, but for his latest adventure hell need the help of a fellow inmate (Mr. Schwarzenegger) to topple a smarmy warden (Mr. Caviezel). The action isnt spectacular, but its great fun to watch Mr. Stallone and Mr. Schwarzenegger banter. If you dont see this one at the theater, its worth the rental at home. Rated R.The Fifth Estate (Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Bruhl, David Thewlis) The first three years of the controversial website WikiLeaks are chronicled in director Bill Condons (Dreamgirls) latest. The performances are strong, and it raises intriguing social questions that become more relevant by the day. Rated R.

The exhibit attracted a number of imaginative two-dimensional entries as well as clay submissions that bring new meaning to the song Im a Little Teapot. Who would imagine that something so utilitarian could be so whimsical and so very special, says Rosemary Wick, president of the centers board of directors. Also at the center, the walls of La Petite Gallerie are covered with art of a new exhibit called Picture the Music. The works were created by Marco Island Academy students under the direction of their teacher, Rob Eder, and Ronald Doiron, director of music at St. Marks Episcopal Church and organist for the Jewish Congregation on Marco Island. After studying Beethovens 7th Symphony for structure, instrumentation and tone, the students created collages representing what they had learned and heard. As the final step of the project, the students will attend a performance of the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra playing Beethovens 7th in December. Childrens author and former teacher Frances Kennedy will be a special guest at the opening reception, signing copies of The Pickle Patch Bathtub and the newly released Just-Right, Perfect Present. Ms. Kennedy says both books are a way of keeping her mothers memories and stories alive. The reception is free to center members and a guest; nonmembers are asked to make a $5 donation. Refreshments will be served. The Marco Island Center for the Arts is at 1010 Winterberry Drive. Regular hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Pulpwood Press. 320 pages. Hardcover $26.99, trade paperback $16.99. Many writers of high repute have applauded Michael Listers giant talent and unique vision. And yet, he perseveres in relative obscurity, never embraced by a major publishing house that could help him reach the wide audience he deserves. Mr. Listers John Jordan Mystery series is a treasure of contemporary literature. His books outside of this landmark series are equally suspenseful, provocative and unsettling. His work always has a spiritual dimension, and in his newest work, the spiritual realm becomes dominant. The plot of Separation Anxiety is populated by twins: biological and spiritual. The central character in this story that involves many major characters is Taylor Sean. Shes a prominent artist, age 32, living with her teenage daughter Shelby in Lithonia Lodge, an eery old house in the Florida Panhandle town of Tupelo. This region is Mr. Listers home territory, and he knows it inside out. Taylor is a conjoined twin, her identical sister Trevor having died in separation surgery (they had been joined at the lower abdomen) so that Taylor might live. Not only does she carry the internal and external scars of this surgery, she has transformed the outer scars into living art. Always tortured by survivor guilt, Taylor has regained a tenuous stability in the long, chaotic aftermath of that loss as well as the loss of Shelbys twin sister, Savannah. Taylors emotional repair is largely due to the loving care of Marc, her novelist soulmate and thus a kind of psychic twin. Now, as a hurricane brewing in the Gulf of Mexico aims right at Tupelo, young Shelby disappears a remarkable recurrence of Savannahs disappearance some eight years back. The search for Shelby races against the timetable of the approaching storm and, perhaps, the intentions of an abductor. Its possible, however, that Shelby has simply left on her own or run away with her boyfriend, Julian. Additional characters are soon philJASONpkjason@comcast.net Lister

239-591-0125 $ 12 95 $ 14 95 Steamed Stuffed NOW ONLY! NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 C15 swept into the unfolding mystery tale. Prominent among them are the local sheriff and his chief investigator. These men, portrayed as brotherly rivals, head up the search, which enlists a specialist named Samantha from the states Child Abduction Response Team. Sam works with her boyfriend/ consultant Daniel, a religion and philosophy professor. They research the medical and legal situations that led to Taylors separation from T revor, and then one pursues the present disappearance while the other pursues the earlier disappearance of Savannah. There must be a connection. Sam and Daniel comprise another soulmate couple. Hurricane Christina and the hunt continue to interact, with a parade of grotesque and dark secrets revealed along the way. I cant tell you any more about the plot. I can, however, tell about this books daring format and style. In a novel that is heavy with dialogue, the author uses no quotations marks. He forces readers to pay attention to the shift of speakers and to their interaction with the narrators voice and that voices omniscient entrances into characters thoughts. Handled deftly by Mr. Lister, this device makes us feel the transient, slippery nature of identity and the shifting realms of reality and perception. Mr. Lister also denies us resting places. Separation Anxiety is without chapters. There is no place to take a breath, only a little extra white space now and then to suggest a scene change. The author trusts us to find our rhythm and maintain our balance through the rhythm he creates, a rhythm often using staccato bursts of language. Frightening and disorienting, charged with raw emotion yet also softened by gentle communion between caring characters, psychologically wrenching and atmospherically dark, Separation Anxiety reveals an author willing to take chances. In doing so, Mr. Lister integrates form, style and theme into a consummate mystery potion. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. facebook.com/ KeyWestExpress twitter.com/ KeyWestExpress youtube.com/ TheKeyWestExpress www.keywestexpress.us 1-800-593-7259 $ 119ROUND TRIP!* FOR ONLY*Minimum 8 day advance purchase, non-refundable fare.

Jamie F., via e-mailA: I am happy to report that TNT has renewed the hour-long courtroom comedy/drama for a fourth season. I recently spoke with series co-star Dana Davis, and she told me all about how great it is to work on the show: Its just too fun working with Mark-Paul (Gossaaler) and Breckin (Meyer), because theyre really, really funny. And I respect them so much. I find it amazing to work with people like Breckin, Mark-Paul and Kumail Nanjiani. Theyre so much fun, and they light up a room. Before season four begins, Dana will be busy. She is co-starring in the Syfy pilot High Moon. But more important, she has a project of her own she wants the world to see. I had this idea for a show, called The Wish i Mayz, that teaches kids about music, all the while, giving them amazing music to listen to. Its about three aliens from the Star Planet who speak only in song, and thats how they teach the kids on Earth about music. Right now, I am pitching it around town. I want to evolve childrens music, and also stimulate their brains a little bit more. I want to give them music that they can keep with them for a lifetime. Q: I am a huge X-Files fan, and my husband and I have been rewatching the series at home on DVD. Can you tell me if there will be another feature film? Carissa G., Tacoma, Wash.A: If series stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, and series creator and head writer Chris Carter have their way, there will be a third movie. All parties are interested, they told a crowd of fans at the Paley Center for the Media in New York this past October. (They were there to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the sci-fi cult hit.) According to David: Its really up to 20th Century Fox at this point. Gillian added: If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that, then I guess thats what it would be. Q: Is it true? Have the Jonas Brothers really broken up? Mollie H., via e-mailA: Sorry tweens, but the pop-music trio has decided to call it quits. According to the bands publicist, Jesse Derris: There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big disagreement over their music direction. Q: I know Drop Dead Diva has been on the bubble for a few seasons. I have my fingers crossed that itll be back for at least one more. Leila P., via e-mailA: Lifetime recently announced that Diva will indeed return for a sixth season. Look for 13 new episodes next year. (Ill let you know when theres a firm date.)

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 WRITING CHALLENGE Writing contest has its winnersOur inbox was deluged with 145 high quality submissions for this years Writing Challenge. During judging, editors revisited all the stories. Each story that was published in our pages, plus another 40 or so entries were selected by our editors. A smaller pile of the most notable entires was then handed to Florida Weekly reviewer, Phil Jason, who picked the two winners. Nancy Murvine took first place for her story, Waiting to be Seen, inspired by the misty park scene from round four of the competition. Second place went to Crystal Chilcott, a junior at the University of Colorado who discovered our contest while on vacation on Sanibel. Her untitled story was based on the photo of the pier from round one. Both winners will attend the Sanibel Island Writers Conference taking place this weekend. Thanks again to everyone for writing. Waiting to be SeenBY NANCY REGES MURVINEShe disappeared long before she ran away. Teachers labeled her anti-social. Therapists tried to pigeon-hole her with Aspergers. The only common thread was that Esme was quite content to be alone. She liked solitude, craved its solemn silence and self-reliance. No one understood Esme except Esme. And Mr. Simonton. It was love at first sight. The widower moved in next door when Esme was 5. She stood on the sidewalk watching the parade of men empty the truck. Each carried something that looked nothing like the over-sized, over-stuffed furniture in Esmes house. Although the furniture was new when the Simontons first bought it, it was now a menagerie of highly collectible mid-century modern, according to her parents. To Esme, each piece resembled a slender-legged animal. She imagined if the furniture could move, the sofa would be a gazelle; the end tables newborn colts. But it was the easels and brushes and boxes filled with crumpled tubes of paint that Mr. Simonton was unpacking in the garage that impelled her to skip across the street and introduce herself. Esmes mother was shocked when her daughter came to the front door to ask permission to have lunch with Mr. Simonton. Over her daughters shoulder, she studied the new neighbor. The man, she guessed to be in his late 70s, stood, hunched with arthritis, at the foot of his driveway and waved shyly. She waved in return, walked Esme back across the street, and introduced herself. But he already knew the major details: name, how long they had lived here, jobs, and other bits of family background that might best have remained within the family. The daughter who often seemed like a stranger in her own house was a chatty ambassador that day and about to become Mr. Simontons first and only art student. In his garage studio, Esme discovered the world of color with its hues and tints and shades and tones, and the symbols each represented. But the day Mr. Simonton shared an old photo album of black and white landscapes, she found her love and became fascinated with the method of grisaille painting, mixing only gray colors on her palette. He did not tell her about grays symbolism of sadness and death and boredom. He commended her instead for picking a color that represented intelligence and maturity. She embraced the idea and reflected them in mini-masterpiece after mini-masterpiece. Her grisaille paintings with their monochromatic grays amazed Mr. Simonton as much as they dismayed Esmes parents. By 10, she was being ushered from psychologist to psychologist to figure out this disquieting dark side of their child. World weary from the day she was born was the way her parents described Esme. Each therapist handed the parents a bill and their regrets and closed the door. If they had only asked Mr. Simonton, he would have told them the truth. Their daughter joyfully found her place in life, not by mimicking humans but by echoing the world around her, a world of gray fog and misty mornings and afternoons weighty with coming rain. Life on the Olympic Peninsula and Esme were the perfect harmonic pairing. No one was happier than she. And no one, it seemed, was happy for her. Except Mr. Simonton. He watched her skill and technique develop as she studied the masters of grisaille, but her paintings were not the usual portrait or sculptural work of older artists. Esme chose landscapes, and by 15, she was a true artist with a unique and strong point of view. Mr. Simonton encouraged her to show her work, to make her private world public. People deserve to see these paintings, Esme. She smiled at her mentor, They are not ready yet, was her simple reply. His joking return: Not ready? Do you mean your paintings or the world? He suspected the world. She disappeared into her work, and then one day she actually disappeared. Mr. Simonton was heartbroken. If her parents could be honest, they were thankful when she ran away. Of course, they did everything loving parents should do, but Esme, without irony, was gone for good. Where she went, no one knew. She attempted no contact with her parents. Mr. Simonton, on the other hand, swore she visited him on several occasions over the years. In the early visits, she promised she was living happily alone in the surrounding rain forests. Later she assured him she was settled in a small town near Seattle. Eventually, she was painting in the San Juans. Of course, dementia was the satisfying label given to what were surely a 95-year-olds delusions. When he mentioned whimsically that his end tables were acting like frisky colts, he was sent to a nursing facility. The invitation to a one-woman show in a gallery in New York came on Mr. Simontons 99th birthday. The announcement contained a separate, beautifully rendered copy on heavy stock of what the gallery owner called Esmes newest and most deeply satisfying landscapes. Mr. Simonton began to weep. He remembered the scene of a nearby park he and Esme walked almost every day a decade ago. For inspiration, she reminded him on mornings when he was reluctant to move and awaken every ache in his ancient body. He recognized the tall, stately lamppost insinuating itself among the sturdy white oaks, and their favorite, the lone saw palmetto, a hardy hanger-on, peeking above the bushes. All this framed two figures sitting opposite each other on benches: a bent, old man and a young woman. He recalled the benches as massive, uncomfortable concrete slabs; here the artist chose the slim lines of the mid century modern furniture with gazellelike legs. He easily accepted the change in memory. And Esmes ubiquitous veil of haze cocooned the two subjects in a paradise of solitude. But it was the color that shocked him and brought him to tears. Every shade of green. He remembered the exact moment he had taught her about the color green. He was working on a still life of grapes and pears and apples. She had wrinkled her nose at his abundant use of green. You are the grisaille genius. I am the humble verdaille painter. Some day you will come to love green as much as you love gray. After all, green is the color of nature, the most restful to the human eye; it is a symbol of harmony and safety, with the power to heal. He winked at her. She nodded. They went back to work, happy in their choices and alone in their work. He turned the miniature painting over. Esmes clear script condensed a decade of wondering where she was and what she was doing with the simplest of words: They are ready now. He touched his fingers to his lips and then to the message. Yes, he whispered, the world is ready for you, Esme. UntitledBY CRYSTAL CHILCOTTWaves splashed against the barnacleencrusted beams. Palm branches, broken fishing rods, and a gopher tortoise crossing sign pummeled the pier. The wind of a Category 4 hurricane slammed against the structure as if it were instead a slab of cement. The pier creaked as a board snapped, falling into the churning sea below. It left behind a hole, an opening large enough for a child to slide into the tormented ocean. The piers boards were worn with the treads of three generations of Pearlstons. Just a week earlier, Jane held her little sisters hand and watched as Marie waddled down the dock pretending to be a penguin. A lace bonnet fell down to her eyes and her neon pink water wings were thrice the size of her arms. Then, she became infatuated with jumping from board to board as if it were a hopscotch court. The construction of the pier was a common topic of conversation when Grandma Pearlstons grandchildren came to visit. She always said that she completed the pier in a single evening while stingrays lashed against her heels and the sun beat down on her head. Wow! Marie always said from her high chair and then resumed her peaflinging. Jane would always roll her eyes and find an excuse to leave the table. Right before they evacuated, Jane had walked down the dock, her bare feet rubbing the wet boards. The slimy damp-board feel usually repulsed her enough to put on shoes, but there were worse things in life than getting a splinter on the bottom of her big toe. She clutched a brown paper bag to her chest and cradled it with her chin. Jane ignored the gentle gulf waves lapping at the piers beams. She ignored the setting sun, bleeding its subtle red into the sea. Aside from the red and blue swirls of emergency vehicle lights and the heavy traffic, it was easy to pretend there was no storm coming. The distant sirens left her mouth dry and sucked her oxygen away. Those noises had been tainted. It was on this very pier that Jane spent her 15 summers with Emily. Sometimes theyd sit and shed swing her legs over the side, the smacking of her plastic flipflops the constant metronome for their conversations. Sometimes theyd sneak into the covered room, that forbidden fishing abode. Grandpa Pearlston had lined the walls with poles, their hooks ready to puncture her skin at one simple misstep. His top catches were mounted to the walls, always staring with accusing eyes. Jane never liked the room, but Emily was rebellious even before they reached their teenage years. Jane didnt want to go in the fishing room. Those mounted fish had known all those years. They knew what she had done. They knew what happened to Emily. Instead she slipped around to the very end of the pier. The breeze was harsh, sending her light hair across her eyes like a whip. No-see-ums began to attack her, their teeny mouths like a million pointed thumbtacks. She didnt move her hair or swat the bugs away. When they were 12, they had sprawled out on the dock during one of the summer meteor showers. It was past midnight and silver stars were sprinkled across the inky sky. They saw the first meteor. I made a wish! Emily said. Jane giggled, her new braces biting into her lip. You still wish on shooting stars? Of course I do. What is it going to hurt? Jane didnt reply what she was thinking: that if you wished for the wrong thing that could cause harm. She tried not to bring out Emilys argumentative side, for that was always the first step before she got her next destructive idea. Youre right, she said. Ill make a wish. But, three years later, no amount of wishing would bring Emily back. No amount of hoping could undo Janes mistake. The meteors began coming quickly, streaking across the celestial sky. For a moment, they were brilliant, commanding all attention. Then they were gone, just a chunk of uninteresting rock. Like Emily, who lived like a fireball, wrecking mindlessly around the island. But her light had burnt out, her flicker of existence complete. Jane removed a box of matches from the bag. She struck the first one and dropped it on the dock. It went out right away, faster than the shooting stars that sped across the sky. With hands shaking with rage, she lit up a quarter of the box and dropped them to the boards. The wind burnt it out as if it were blowing out birthday candles. She scrunched her face into a mask of anger and hurled the box of matches into the sea below. The pier withstood Janes matches, but it could not beat the hurricane. An empty piece of cardboard splashed across the boards, followed by one of the Pearlstons watering cans. The rain was a sheet of water, slapping against the pier. Another board cracked, but it didnt fall into the watery grave below. Instead it flew into the air and was carried onto the shore. Finally, the beams folded under the pier and it collapsed into the swirling sea.

Chef-owner Alberto Varetto hails from Torino and presided over the kitchen of the venerable Sale e Pepe on Marco Island for more than 10 years. Youll find no mass-produced pasta here. Only freshly made ribbons of pappardelle and taglierini are good enough to be laced with Varettos ragouts; only hand-folded envelopes of agnolotti, raviolini and tortelloni are worthy of being stuffed with meats, cheeses and herbs. Flavor pairings such as plump sea scallops with lush lobster sauce and sweet onion confit, and salty prosciutto with sweet roasted pears and peppery baby arugula, are well conceived. If the to-die-for taglierini with pesto and copious amounts of jumbo lump crabmeat is a fair indication, the fresh pasta dishes are not to be missed. Because the portions of each course were so reasonable, we left feeling fully satisfied but not stuffed. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2012 Alpine Restaurant, Galleria Shoppes at Vanderbilt, 2355 Vanderbilt Beach Road; 325-9499 Step into Alpine Restaurant and be instantly transported to that lovely part of the world filled with snow-capped mountains and comforting food. Theres rib-sticking goulash and hearty schnitzel, plus lighter options, charming service and a dining room that seems lifted whole from some cozy Austrian village. Start with a bowl of goulash or the sauerkraut soup, with strands of sauerkraut, smoked pork, potatoes and mushrooms. The chicken version of Alpine schnitzel (pork is another option) is marinated, grilled then topped with provolone and a fried egg. Served with bacon-laced farmers potatoes and a medley of green beans, red peppers, peas and water chestnuts, its a meal that guarantees leftovers. The knedlo-vepro-zelo, a traditional Czech dish, features pork, dumplings and sauerkraut accompanied by caramelized cabbage. A fitting finish is the aptly named Triple Yummy crepe, a delicate pancake filled with Nutella, bananas and strawberries. Beer and (basic) wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2013 Chops City Grill, 8200 Health Park Center, Bonita Springs; 9924677 More than a decade after my memorable first visit, and as the economy still struggles to recover from the inevitable bust that follows boom, Chops still delivers dazzling food and draws diners willing to pay luxury prices for it (a 22-ounce dryaged bone-in ribeye costs $52.50 and sauces are extra) The Asian-accented menu remains focused on grilled prime steaks and other meats, though Chops has never given seafood short shrift. You can even get a choice of wetor dry-aged beef. A nearly 2-inch-thick ribeye was flawlessly grilled to create a crispy, bronze crusted while sealing juices in the deep red medium-rare interior. With its deeply beefy flavor, this is about as good as steak gets. A pan-seared black grouper with wild mushroom risotto and screaming hot rock shrimp sauce was perfectly cooked but overwhelmed by its sauce. Desserts are the usual suspects; you might want to enjoy another one of Chops sexy cocktails instead. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2013 Meredays Fine Dining, Naples Bay Resort, 1500 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 732-0784The eponymous restaurant of chef/ owner Charles Mereday is a wonder of gracious service, lovely setting and the inspired cuisine that its creator simply terms American but that is so much more. Food is served as multi-course small plates (choose three, four or five courses or sit at the bar and order a large plate) and changes as seasonal ingredients do. I can vouch for the perfectly crafted heirloom red and gold beet salad with grilled ricotta salada, mint and orange segments; superb seared scallops with arugula and parsnip puree; butternut squash ravioli with tempura-fried squash blossom; Creole shrimp and cheddar grits; grilled salmon on sweet potato puree; crispy duck leg with wild mushroom risotto; and warm sticky toffee pudding with sweet toffee sauce and brown sugar ice cream. Theres an excellent wine list to choose from as well. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere Reviewed September 2013 Michelbobs Champion Ribs, 371 Airport Pulling Road, Naples; 6437427 Michelbobs signature spice rub enhances its slow-smoked Danish baby backs, a mustard and paprika blend presented in shakers on every table just in case you want an extra punch of flavor. There are also two bottled sauces to slather on the meaty bones one tangy with mustard (complex and well balanced) and one smoky-sweet (tasting heavily of Liquid Smoke). When all was said and done, and all saucy fingers were licked clean, the baby backs truly stood out from the rest of the meal. The flesh was tender enough to slip off easily and had those crispy edges that just add a little extra texture to the experience. The barbecued chicken had rubbery skin and lacked seasoning. A smoked pork dinner had an ample stack of sliced meat but was somewhat dry. Among the side dishes, the smokysweet baked beans studded with chunks of pork were a real standout. Full bar.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 7-13, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 CUISINEFilling, fresh and comforting, Grouper Grille reels you inSometimes you want someone else to handle the cooking, serving and cleaning, but you dont want to get all gussied up in order to make that happen. All you require is a peaceful, casual spot where you can show up in your comfortable clothes and deck shoes, skip the linen tablecloths and enjoy some simple but well-prepared food devoid of emulsions, aiolis, coulis and confits. That would be a good time to try Grouper Grille Seafood, where, but for the chicken noodle soup and grilled chicken, all the offerings come from the sea, are grilled, fried, blackened or sauted, and are served with familiar sides such as fries and cole slaw. The menu sets out the philosophy well: Casual, everyday-style food made from fresh, natural ingredients from local farms makes our menu reminiscent of Moms home cooking. There are but 10 tables in the unfussy dining room of the Grouper Grille, which occupies the space that used to be Falafel Grill (which relocated to U.S. 41 some months back). Framed posters of idyllic island scenes and lovely flowers adorn the walls. Mauve paper placemats share space with wire containers holding ketchup, malt vinegar, salt, pepper and hot sauce on each spotless table. The smiling proprietress who also comprises the entire wait staff invites you to sit at whatever table appeals to you and then promptly stops by to take a drink order. Im not sure that this would be the case if the place were busy but, with only three other tables occupied the night we visited, she had no difficulty attending to everyones needs. My companion ordered a glass of wine (I think it was a pinot noir) from the menu. Our hostess returned with an apology that she didnt have that one, but offered a glass of malbec instead, which was fine. We liked that there were options beyond the usual jug varieties that serve as house wines in many places. Looking at what our fellow diners had ordered, it appears that the grouper baskets are the big attraction here. I suppose that makes sense, given the name of the place. If you have a hankering for fried grouper, its likely youd find your way here. Nonetheless, there were plenty of envious glances at our table when our homemade clam chowder ($4.95) and fried calamari ($10.95) arrived. The chowder was fragrant, creamy but not overly so, the broth delicately flavored and studded with clams, potatoes and onions. The calamari was crisp with a nicely seasoned batter and accompanied by a spicy marinara. The only complaint I have is that for the price, I thought the portion was a little skimpy. Naturally, we felt compelled to order the grouper basket, but chose one that also included shrimp ($14.95). Another option is the captains basket, which contains fried grouper, six shrimp and four scallops ($17.95). The fish fillet was thick and properly fried, with a satisfyingly crunchy coating. The shrimp were good sized and were also cooked properly, crisp but still moist within. These came with little plastic cups of tartar and cocktail sauce for dipping, as well as excellent French fries and fresh, well-chilled cole slaw. Not everything on the menu is fried. There are platters of grilled, blackened or sauted grouper, grilled shrimp, sauted crab cakes and grilled shrimp. Pasta options include shrimp, clam or mixed seafood. I chose the latter ($23.95), which included shrimp, clams, calamari and mussels in a tomato ga rlic butt er sauce over linguini. It was a lovely presentation, the mussels and clams in their shells, the mound of seafood tangled in the long strands of pasta all adorned with shreds of freshly grated cheese. The pasta was cooked to a proper al dente and the seafood was just right as well, but the sauce needed more kick an infusion of garlic, perhaps some basil or other fresh herbs and there could have been more of it. A squeeze of lemon borrowed from my companions basket added some zest, as did a bit of salt and pepper. Grouper Grille is also open for lunch, serving its signature baskets as well as grilled or blackened grouper salad, and platters of grilled or sauted grouper, crab cake, and shrimp or clams with pasta as well as sandwiches grouper, spicy shrimp, clam strips or grilled chicken breast. Im not sure if any desserts are available, as they are not listed on the menu. We didnt inquire since we were well filled after appetizers and entrees, and none were offered. And thats just fine. After a hearty basket of fried seafood, dessert would be overkill. What Grouper Grille offers isnt fancy, but it is filling, fresh and comforting. On some days, thats exactly the right combination.
