B1 Michael Curt DREIKORN CLAWSON Paige KREEGEL Lizbeth BENACQUISTO Lee Memorial Health System has moved on to Plan B in its efforts to build a facility in Estero. Plan A was an 80-bed hospital that was dismissed by state regulators after NCH Healthcare System opposed the move. What is Plan B? Think of it like a hospital, but without beds, Jim Nathan, the Lee Memorial president, wrote in a message he recently sent to the Estero and Bonita Springs Communities. The message doesnt go into details for the site just south of Coconut Point mall, the same location where Lee Memorial hoped to build a hospital with beds. Those details will be worked out in the future. Mr. Nathan termed the new project as an exciting, new ambulatory care model that brings a critical mass of services and physician specialties into one destination health-care center. The health systems plan to build an $81 million hospital in southern Lee County hit a roadblock recently when a state judge ruled against the idea. To build a new hospital the health system needed approval from the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. The new facility, however, does not need that approval, according to Lee Memorial spokeswoman Mary Briggs. In an email to Florida Weekly, Ms. Briggs explained that the ambulatory care model Mr. Nathan mentioned will be unlike anything locally. No timetable or details have been announced for the project. We are not yet ready to announce the specific services that will be available but can tell you that they will be comprehensive across the continuum of care, Ms. Briggs wrote in her email. This is like a super mall of health care services. We are calling it a hospital, but without beds.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 COMMENTARYWhistling Dixie I found myself thinking the other day that the South will win the Civil War after all. We are exporting, with great success and for the benefit of the rest of the country, our most radical ideas. Now, to be sure, most of Florida is not the South in the regional meaning of the words and it has not been for a long time. We are an island of transplants from places without historic membership in the club of the old Confederacy; but that hardly matters now. States are realigning to the tune of a wish I was, resurrecting failed ideas from the ashes of the Old South that harken back to the era when preserving our way of life was the battle cry to mobilize the ruling planter class. Todays call to arms in defense of the mythical Dixie includes gun-waving, rhetorical rebel yells, and demagoguery sufficient to rouse a hot-blooded crush of indignant white folk into a political frenzy. They wage economic warfare mostly at their own and their neighbors expense. Nothing learned from the nations most divisive civil conflict sticks among the new South wannabes. The ghosts of the party of Lincoln have descended into Dantes inferno. The irony is rich: the once-federalist faithful abandoning willy-nilly their ancestral loyalty to the Union blue, to launch reconstruction dj vu by other means. Many a great-great-grand-pappy must be rolling over in his grave as the descendant young guns abandon the federal ranks in mass to join the rebels. Seductions by sunshine and rapacious dealing are burning through state legislatures like Tom Wolfes Bonfire of the Vanities, leaving no good deed for the people unpunished. They advocate states rights and secession, waving stars and bars to rally the troops to defend the new plantations. The mega mansions proliferate like dandelions in the great lawn and conceal, within the caste of their long shadows, the dreary shanties of millions of working poor. Fighting for state rights is an expansive table, too; almost any cause can find a seat. We demand the right to obesity and fight to eat ourselves to death with food addictions engineered by corporate design. We demand the right to poverty by making sure the minimum wage is the maximum wage, cutting food stamps, and denying unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed, despite the worst recession in 75 years. We demand the right to flaunt our wealth in the big house, lovely ladies in flowing gowns and tuxedoed men dancing the waltz of show-and-tell philanthropy, generosity masking the crime and corruption that made the most infamous among them filthy rich. It is as if we resurrected in the flesh the mournful Ashley Wilkes from Gone With The Wind to avenge old, sacred grievances of sovereignty lost. Our states legislators deny expansion of Medicaid to the states uninsured because acceptance of federal dollars is inconsistent with our God-given right to act stupid. Meanwhile, uninsured millions and taxpayers infinitum get no benefit from billions in taxes contributed to support the program. Demagogues lure the gullible to distraction by promoting culture wars as they dismantle brick-by-brick the nations commitment to equality of opportunity, urging old insurrections that once nearly destroyed the nations democratic ideals. Why not different classes of citizenship as a way to resolve the immigration problem? It worked well to count slaves as three-fifths of a person for purposes of taxation. Lets also limit the franchise to the privileged, too, and make it hard to vote. It could be worse: No senator today has suffered a severe beating at the hands of a crazed congressman on the floor of the U.S. Senate, an incident that occurred in the run-up to the Civil War. But how long before some jackass pulls out a gun, shoots to defend against threats to their honor, and then pleads, Stand Your Ground? Some say the Citizens United decision rendered by the Supreme Court in 2012 is our eras version of the Courts Dred Scott decision in 1857. In that decision, southern justices sympathetic to the South recruited a northern justice to join them in a majority opinion that ruled slaves werent people; they were property. Last fall, Jim Leach, a former Republican Congressman, wrote in a Boston Globe op-ed, To justify slavery, the court in Dred Scott defined a class of human beings as private property. To magnify corporate power a century and a half later, it defined a class of private property (corporations) as people. I used to think if you wanted to see what the nation would look like had the South won the Civil War, you need only travel to Mississippi; but now I think you dont have to go nearly that far.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 OPINION amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Climate sciences dire warning: Humans are baking the planetThe majority of the world is convinced that humans are changing the climate, for the worse. Now, evidence is mounting that paints just how grim a future we are making for ourselves and the planet. We will experience more extreme weather events, including hurricanes and droughts, mass extinctions and severe food shortages globally. The worlds leading group of climatechange experts, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has issued its most recent report after a five-day meeting last week in Yokohama, Japan. The IPCC, over 1,800 scientists from around the world, collects, analyzes and synthesizes the best, solid science on climate and related fields. The prognosis is not good. At the news conference announcing the report, IPCC chairperson Rajendra Pachauri warned, If the world doesnt do anything about mitigating the emissions of greenhouse gases and the extent of climate change continues to increase, then the very social stability of human systems could be at stake. Pachauri speaks with the discipline of a scientist and the reserve of a diplomat. The latest report, though, states clearly: Climate change can indirectly increase risks of violent conflicts in the form of civil war and inter-group violence. It stresses how the world food supply, already experiencing stress, will be impacted, and those who are most vulnerable will be the first to go hungry. But the problem is even larger. The IPCCs previous comprehensive report came out in 2007. Since that time, the amount of scientific findings has doubled, making human-induced climate change an irrefutable fact. But there are still powerful deniers, funded by the fossil-fuel industry. Oxfam, a global anti-hunger campaign organization, also is challenging the deniers with a report released last week called Hot and hungry how to stop climate change derailing the fight against hunger. Oxfams Tim Gore says that corporations like Exxon, the powerful economic interests that are currently profiting from our high-carbon economic model ... stand to lose the most from a transition to a low-carbon, fair alternative. Undaunted, ExxonMobil issued its own report following the IPCCs this week, asserting that climate policies are highly unlikely to stop it from producing and selling fossil fuels in the near future. Fossil-fuel corporations like ExxonMobil exert enormous influence over climate-change policy, especially in the United States. The U.S. House of Representatives this week passed a measure that would effectively force the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and related bodies to ignore climate change, focusing instead on forecasting severe weather, but not its likely causes. Meanwhile, at the state level, the Tennessee Senate passed a bill banning investment in certain forms of public transit. According to ThinkProgress, the measure received critical funding from the billionaire Republican oil barons Charles and David Koch. The political influence of people like the Kochs will likely become more direct, with the U.S. Supreme Courts decision to eliminate personal contribution caps to candidates in its ruling in the case of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission. One of the IPCC report authors, Bangladeshi climate scientist Saleemul Huq, put it this way on the Democracy Now! news hour: Fossil-fuel companies ... are the drug suppliers to the rest of the world who are junkies and are hooked on fossil fuels. But we dont have to remain hooked on fossil fuels. We are going to have to cut ourselves off from them if we want to see a real transition and prevent temperature rises up to 4 degrees Celsius [7.2 degrees Fahrenheit]. That is the crux of the crisis: The major polluting nations are obstructing a binding global agreement to combat climate change. They have agreed, in principle, with the rest of the world, at the United Nations climate negotiations, to limit greenhouse-gas emissions to levels that would allow a global temperature increase of only 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). But the science says that goal is quickly slipping away, and that we are facing a 4-degree increase Princeton professor Michael Oppenheimer, another IPCC report co-author, told me: Its not just a problem for the rest of the world ... think about Hurricane Sandy. Think about how hard it was to deal with that storm. Thats todays storms. Think about what happens over the next 10, 20, 30 years, when sea level goes up and the storms get worse. America is addicted to oil, President George W. Bush, himself a failed oilman, famously said at his State of the Union address in 2006. The U.S. political establishment is swimming in fossil-fuel money, which is drowning democracy. Change will come from grass-roots organizing, from movements like students pushing their university endowments to divest from fossil-fuel corporations, from local communities fighting against fracking, and from the growing nonviolent direct-action campaign to block the Keystone XL pipeline.

She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority, a New York Times best-seller.Obamacares master of false assuranceA core competency of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is issuing false assurances. An administration about-face has left the Cabinet official looking like the Baghdad Bob of American health insurance. When Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, asked her at a hearing two weeks ago whether the administration would extend the Obamacare enrollment period beyond March 31, she responded with a crisp and direct: No, sir. To the uninitiated, that sounded like an unmistakable denial of any intention to delay the enrollment period. The uninitiated were sadly misled. The secretary subsequently referred in her testimony to a delayed enrollment period for people who were unable to enroll through no fault of their own. It turns out that the administrations definition of these frustrated would-be enrollees includes ... well, everyone. The Washington Post reports that the administration will rely on the honor system to determine if people enrolling past the deadline are hardship cases, A few weeks ago, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs HealthCare.gov, told reporters we dont actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014. As if that would be an obstacle. The enrollment extension is in the same spirit as the administrations partial enactment in 2012 of the DREAM Act through executive fiat after President Barack Obama said in 2011 that he didnt have the authority for such a change. It is a testament to the Obama administrations audacity that it doesnt just defy the critics view of its lawful authority, it defies its own view of its lawful authority. News of the extension of the enrollment period came on the same day that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia heard arguments in Halbig v. Sebelius, a case involving arguably the most sweeping act of lawlessness in Obamacares implementation. The text of the Affordable Care Act says that only exchanges set up by the states are eligible for subsidies. Since so many states didnt set up exchanges, the Obama administration decided that enrollees on the federal exchanges can also get the subsidies. Its defense in Halbig v. Sebelius is, true to form, that the law doesnt mean what it says. Obamacare has been a long workshop in improv tragicomedy. The delays, regulatory rewritings and extensions are always an attempt simply to live for another day, to put off the political pain of cancellations, or rate hikes, or layoffs, and to get just enough traction to make the law viable. Millions have signed up for the exchanges, but its not clear that the demographic mix is right to avoid steep premium increases by insurers in 2015. So far, it looks like young people essential to making the economics of the exchanges work arent signing up in the necessary numbers. The extension is surely a ploy to squeeze every last young invincible out of the current enrollment period, and hope the news for the rates in 2015 isnt so bad. And after that? Its anybodys guess. All we know for sure is that whatever Kathleen Sebelius says today may not be operative tomorrow. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Theyd waited almost 40 years. She first laid eyes on him in the radio station at Penn sylv ania State University in the early 1970s. He wanted to see how it worked because he wanted to set up a station that would broadcast the first meteorological reports on campus, she remembers. I said, Whos that guy over there?Mr. Reif was hard to miss. His 6-foot, 5-inch frame was crowned by a lustrous smile and an Afro. That impressive package came with an excitement and energy that was palpable, Ms. Hess says a quality he retained to the last days of his life, when he served Waterman Broadcasting as chief meteorologist for NBC-2 and ABC-7.Prior to 1999, he spent 20 years at WINK News. Both here and elsewhere, he was widely acknowledged by colleagues as the most capable and experienced hurricane expert in a region of hurricane experts. One of the things were saying about him is this, because it explains Jim, says Steve Pontius, executive vice president for Waterman Broadcasting and Mr. Reifs boss: When the weather was at its worst, he was at his best. There is no clich in those words, his colleagues say. Mr. Reif is beloved by many on the Southwest Florida coast, either for saving their lives or for giving them just enough of a head start to escape the devastation and discomfort caused by Hurricane Charley, a Category 4 storm that steamrolled both Lee and Charlotte counties on Aug. 13, 2004. At 11 a.m. that Friday, Mr. Reifs friend and colleague Robert VanWinkle recalls, the National Hurricane Center was still predicting that the monster storm would track north and miss the Southwest Florida coast. But the two meteorologists noticed a wobble in the storm. We pulled our team aside, and (Jim) said, We need to break with this NHC forecast, Mr. VanWinkle recalls. Even though we both got credit for making that call, we needed Jims experience that day. Known for being kind to a sometimes adoring public people would stop him on the street or in restaurants just to touch him, Ms. Hess says Mr. Reif was also a rationalist who relied on empirical evidence. He was a scientist, recalls his friend of 40 years, Dave Brown, chief meteorologist for WMC-TV in Memphis. Scientists always keep an open mind until there is overwhelming evidence of something. Scientists of Mr. Reifs sort are also impassioned teachers, it turns out theyll talk about their science to anybody who wants to hear. Which in Mr. Reifs case amounted to many. Wayne Sallade, another many-decade friend and the director of emergency management in Charlotte County, recalls how Mr. Reif would give seminars in the science of hurricanes sometimes as many as three a day. A friend of Mr. Reifs for decades, Mr. Sallade also remembers Mr. Reifs expertise in scuba diving, his love of flying, which he continued to do, and his self-discipline especially in giving up his beloved Philly cheese steaks, which he had grown up with. Mr. Reif, the oldest of two boys, was born and raised in Cherry Hill, N.J. His brother, Dan Reif, is a sales manager at a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz dealership in Fort Pierce. Their father sold meat to markets in the region. Their mother, a homemaker, decided Jim was a musical prodigy and pushed him into piano and organ lessons as a boy, Ms. Hess says. By the time he was 17, she adds, He was almost on the level of a concert pianist. But he rebelled. Although Ms. Hess first noticed Mr. Reif at Penn State, it wasnt until 1979 that the couple met for the first time, and for a first date. Mr. Reif had convinced Ms. Hess to meet him at an airstrip near Pottstown, Pa. He was working at AccuWeather out of State College, and she was broadcasting morning news for a radio station in Reading. They had talked frequently but briefly on the telephone, for work. His first-date gesture was characteristically both dramatic and romantic. He drops out of the skies in a two-seat Cessna, lands the plane, pops his head out, and says, Are you Jane? I look over my shoulder, and the only other living things are crickets. I must be, I told him. They flew to New York for supper after he asked her to get behind the airplane and push it, so he could turn it around and get it off the ground in Pottstown. They spent the next year dating. Then he moved to Fort Myers and she didnt. Almost 30 years later and after each had suffered through two failed marriages, things got serious. It started on the Internet about eight years ago. Eventually, he convinced me to move to Fort Myers, she explains. Their love soared, and when the couple visited Europe earlier this spring, he dropped to his knees in a picturesque German castle, drew a ring from his pocket, and proposed. Ms. Hess knew what she was getting into, she admits and she instantly said yes. I understood that he was a science guy, and that he would be quirky in that way. And I understood that the weather, and his audience, came first. It was nothing for him to go to bed at 1 a.m. because that was when certain weather models came in. Hed stay up to satisfy himself so he could go to sleep without worry, then hed be up by 6 or 7 a.m. He was a science guy, but he was a romantic science guy. There was never a single day, not one single day, that he didnt tell me he loved me, Ms. Hess says.And in his own way the way of a meteorologist nonpareil there wasnt a single day that he didnt deliver that same message in the language and news of weather to thousands of friends who invited him into their homes, and trusted him.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 Lizbeth BENACQUISTO Sen. Benacquisto remembers packing into the station wagon, driving down to Florida for summer vacations. Her family moved to Florida when she was 10. We did not have a lot, but we had each other, she says. Our time was marked not by what we had but what we made of it. Sen. Benacquisto says her mother used to go to the fabric store and buy whatever fabric was on sale. My brothers would wear pants, I would wear a dress, made out of the same material, she says. And we were so happy. Sen. Benacquisto believes living within modest means resonates with many families. Folks recognize in me, they know when Im fighting on behalf of an issue, its with them in mind, she says. Sen. Benacquisto says she was born with inverted feet. When she was young, she had to wear metal braces, the full length of her legs, with a metal belt and special shoes. The contraption was awkward, heavy. Other children made fun of her, but it taught her a valuable lesson: You are what you believe yourself to be, she says. And I believe myself to be a strong woman. Michel Doherty has been involved in politics since 1975, helping women get elected to office. She has lived in Cape Coral for 30 years, largely known for her philanthropy and volunteer work. Ms. Doherty says she has been out on the trail with Lizbeth Benacquisto from the beginning, when the young hopeful first ran for her state Senate seat in 2010. Before joining her campaign, Ms. Doherty sat down with Lizbeth Benacquisto to see if she had the fire in her belly for politics, to see if she had the courage to do it. I told her to put her Teflon jacket on, says Ms. Doherty, thinking of all the criticisms to come from other candidates, politicians, men. I said, Theyre going to take shots at you all the time. Theyre going to try to discourage you, eliminate you, intimidate you, but she was not intimidated Shes a fighter. Ms. Doherty says she and Lizbeth Benacquisto discussed the play after the play, where she would go after the state Senate. They foresaw her running for governor or Congress, so when the Trey Radel opportunity presented itself, she decided to go for it the United States House of Representatives. Lizbeth has a charisma and warmth that envelops people. They like her immediately, Ms. Doherty says. Other candidates Ive worked with, Ive had to deal with their egos all the time, but Lizbeths sincere. Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane found Sen. Benacquistos responsiveness refreshing this past summer, as he was dealing with water quality concerns from the freshwater releases of Lake Okeechobee, down the Caloosahatchee, out into the salty Gulf. The water was discolored and residents were dispirited. Mayor Ruane heard Sen. Benacquisto would be visiting Fort Myers Beach. He called up her office and spoke with her directly. He asked if she could make time for Sanibel too, meet with merchants, Realtors and residents, hear their concerns firsthand. That call was made at three or four oclock in the afternoon. Mayor Ruane says Sen. Benacquisto was on Sanibel Island by 9:30 the next morning. She has demonstrated her concern, her compassion and her attentiveness, Mayor Ruane says. You always hope an elected official will have the responsiveness she has. We all ask for an opportunity to be heard. We all ask for someone to actually listen. Thats half the battle, being heard. You just dont have that many people anymore with that level of concern. Sen. Benacquistos responsive. Whether shes impacted or not, shes responsive. And thats really unique. Athena Ponushis campaigns and we agree. The race for this congressional seat was so grueling the first time around (in 2012, when Trey Radel won the seat) that most of the candidates from that race refused to return for a second try preferring to ensconce themselves in private enterprise rather than the public circus of snideness that we have come to accept as political discourse. The race, this special election, is the result of some ugliness in its own right. Mr. Radel resigned the seat on January 27, months after being arrested for buying an eight-ball of cocaine in Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. Voters will now have to pick his replacement, beginning with a Republican primary Tuesday, April 22. The winner of that contest will then run against Democrat April Freeman on June 24. Ostensibly, the winner of the Republican primary this month will take the seat the state Democratic party has a history of ignoring its candidates in these parts and withholding any financial help. (The same held true in 2012 when the Democratic party wrote off Southwest Florida as impossible to win.) So its a pretty safe bet that one of the four smiling faces profiled here will be our next Representative in the U.S. Capitol. Ideologically, the differences between these four Republican candidates are nominal. Regardless, each campaign is pouring resources into painting their opponents in the worst light possible. The most common smears are based on the premise that the other candidates simply are not conservative enough. Here, Florida Weekly aims to find out who these candidates are, devoid of the rhetoric and the mudslinging. What shaped them? Where did they come from? What do they like to read? The answers may be signposts to temperament and character. In this election, at least, those will be more significant measures for voters than fretful firefights to claim the title truest conservative. RACEFrom page 1 Whats your favorite place to relax in Southwest Florida? Anywhere on the boat with my family. Who is your hero? My mother Patricia. What are your hobbies?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 NEWS A9 Michael DREIKORNAside from his profession working for the Federal Aviation Administration, and later as an executive who oversaw safety inspections of aircraft parts his politics, too, are rooted in the southern California of the 1960s and 0s. He describes himself proudly as a product of then Gov. Ronald Reagans public school system, and asserts that old California more closely reflected his current values as a fiscally conservative Republican. But his family wasnt politically one-sided. Mr. Dreikorns father was a German immigrant, and a Democrat, he pointed out. So I wasnt overly brainwashed one way or the other. His mother, meanwhile, was a very staunch conservative Republican. His parents separated when he was a boy. Although he went to live with his mother, he spent a lot of time with his grandmother on his fathers side. She taught him German, a language he still speaks and writes, and manners to keep his elbows off the table, for instance. At 18, he joined the Army to get away from the crowd I was running in, he said. It offered him a route to adulthood that admired older family members had taken, and the country was facing possible military challenges. There was a call to patriotism at the time, he added. In my eyes, I was responding to the call to serve. He was a helicopter mechanic in the Army and part of a unit flying along the Czechoslovakian and East German border to keep an eye on cold-war Russia military movements. Meanwhile, President Reagans leadership left an impression that stuck with him. He was inspirational, Mr. Dreikorn said. He was somebody we could look up to and have confidence in to be our leader. You didnt have to agree with everything he said but the man was a leader. And we dont have that even remotely today. I mean this guy brought down the Berlin wall. And he did it simply by saying, Mr. Gorbachev, (tear) down this wall. He did it with words, not with guns, and his words meant something because he was believable. If its not surprising that a former professional actor could give a believable speech, the confidence Mr. Reagan inspired fed into a certain national image that has been lost, as Mr. Dreikorn describes it. The United States, back then, was seen as not to be messed with, he said; and today, that image has been weakened in part due to an underfunded military; troops tired from rotations in current and recent wars; and inflated entitlement programs such as food stamps. We need to stop the entitlements not all (of them), but entitlement abuse, he said. Increasing military funding and shrinking entitlement programs would help turn the national psychology around, he said. After seven years in the Army, Sgt. Dreikorn returned to civilian life. Having earned a bachelors degree in professional aeronautics, he pursued a masters in management, and continued his education as his career progressed. In the 1990s he worked for the FAA in Washington, D.C., including on safety issues, and earned a doctorate of education in human resource and organizational development from The George Washington University. As an executive for a major manufacturer of civilian and military aircraft parts, his job was to sign off on equipment, saying it was safe. This sometimes put him at odds with other executives or customers who had financial and other concerns. Bob Ponchak, a reference Mr. Dreikorn provided, was his boss at the company, Pratt & Whitney. Mr. Dreikorn had good communication and negotiating skills, he said. And even in some very testy areas with customers, Mike held his own. He was very professional and I was glad he was with me. Mr. Ponchak added, I thought he was a good team player. He was flexible, he wasnt rigid. These days, the 52-year-old Mr. Dreikorn runs a consulting and engineering firm for the aviation and aerospace industries. He moved from Connecticut to Pine Island in 2004 for southern Floridas conservative values, favorable tax structure, the international airport, and ecological cleanliness, he said. And the sunny days. I like to snow ski, I just dont like to live in it, said Mr. Dreikorn, who lives on the northern tip of the island in Bokeelia, where he was elected president of its civic association. Getting elected to public office in Washington will, of course, be tougher. In the absence of leadership, I felt it was time to stand up, he said of his decision to enter the race. Im at a point personally where I think I have the wisdom to make the right decision, the patience to hear things out I dont plan on being a career politician. I need to go up there and set an example of what a good politician is, what a good representative looks like, and then I need to come back and pass the torch. Evan Williams Tell us about your family. My 94-year-old grandmother has been a major in uence over my entire life, instructing me on the basics of respect and honor. In addition to my son, I have three beautiful grandchildren ranging in ages from 3 to 10. My girlfriend, Darlene, and I have been together more than 10 years and I claim her two sons as my stepsons. When did you move to Southwest Florida? I moved to Bokeelia, on Pine Island, in February 2004. Six months later, Hurricane Charley huffed and puffed and blew my house away. I rebuilt and was ever more committed to this area. Whats your favorite place to relax in Southwest Florida? One of my favorite locations to get away is Cayo Costa Island. Its only accessible by boat and is a remarkable destination. But, shhhh, its a local secret. Who are your heroes? One of my favorite nonction heroes is Sen. John Glenn, mostly because of the positive life he lived that we should use as a measure of what it means to be an American. Yes, I do know he was a Democrat, but he also served as a marine, Mercury astronaut, Space Shuttle astronaut, and as a senator representing Ohio. His life was one of service to America and that must be respected and honored. What are your hobbies? As I get older, my hobbies have become a bit less impactful on my body. Up till the age of 40, I was very competitive in martial arts. But those days are behind me. Today my hobbies include riding my Harley, boating with friends, spending time with my dogs and travelling to off-the-trail destinations. Whats the toughest job youve ever had? Vice president of quality and product integrity for Pratt & Whitney, one of the largest turbine engine manufacturers in the worldHow do you handle a situation where none of your choices look good? I always measure the options with data. I also measure the consequences of inaction. Sometimes taking the lesser of two evils is much worse than doing nothing. The impact of decisions must be understood, so that is a key consideration when evaluating choices.Favorite work of ction? Robinson Crusoe by Daniel DeFoe.Favorite work of nonction? The right answer is the Bible, right? But, aside from that, I would say Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith. Do you have any pets? I have two dogs, an Irish and an English setter. Do you play any instruments? In school I played the trumpet and as a Boy Scout I was the troops bugler. I doubt I am a viable trumpet player anymore. But I feel pretty good about picking up a bugle still. q&a REFLECTING ON THE EARLY ORIGINS OF HIS CAREER IN THE AVIATION INDUSTRY, Michael Dreikorn described an image from his childhood in Orange County, Calif.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 Paige KREEGELThe Estero physician looks tired, weary from weeks of a campaign increasingly oscillating to the negative. Hes supposed to be talking about himself, for once not being poked and pried for opinions or comments about his opponents. But the three-time Florida legislator who termed out of office in 2010 isnt one to toot his accomplishments. Instead others point out the 55-year-olds attributes. Hes the salt of the earth, says mother Alberta Kreegel; a caring and compassionate doctor, according to Juan Acosta, a surgical technician who worked alongside the doctor in the emergency room at the former St. Joseph Hospital in Punta Gorda and accompanied him on several medical missions to Central and South America, including one to Nicaragua following Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Even his campaign staff is still learning tidbits about their man. I just found out he was the medic for the U.S. arm wrestling team, says Alex Melendez. For the longest time, Punta Gorda resident Fred Bettis, who co-piloted the doctor through helicopter training in the early 1990s, didnt know his student was also a cattle and citrus farmer. Theres the public stuff: five years as an emergency room physician followed by decades in family practice, the doctor for the Charlotte County Sheriffs Offices SWAT team and a conservative Republican and eight-year representative for Floridas 72nd House District. Dr. Kreegel likes to grow things and looks forward to family weekends at the farm. His eyes light up when he talks about the farm and his family wife Erika, daughters Savannah, 14, and Olivia, 12, and son Christian, 10. He chuckles while explaining the challenge of balancing cattle farming with animal-loving daughters whose recent count of pets includes two donkeys, two goats and two pigs. The girls were active in 4-H but never to the point of raising cattle or hogs for county fairs and eventual auctions. This is why, he says, pulling up a cellphone photo showing pretty Savannah kissing a calf. Eagle-eye viewers may have even noticed a goat not a family dog or cat in a previous TV spot. Happenstance has factored into seemingly nonsequitur paths for the Homestead, Fla.-born doctor. He happened into family practice. Ditto for helicopter training, his political career and that stint as arm wrestling team doctor at the request of Punta Gorda arm wrestler Larry Collins. Only one thing was practically a given: Medical school for him and brother Drew. My father had a lot of input on that, he says. Upon completing his medical degree at New York Medical School and interning at a Memphis hospital, Dr. Kreegel was eager to return to his home state. I was born in Florida and Ill die here, he says. I finished my internship in 1983 and wanted to return to Miami but it had changed. It wasnt the same town I remembered as a kid. Turns out sleepy Southwest Florida was, and Dr. Kreegels first job was in the emergency room at St. Joseph. After five years, he found himself filling in for the towns family physician just across the street, babysitting the practice for so long, he just happened to segue into family practice, eventually founding American-Medic, a multi-discipline clinic that grew to as many as 14 medical specialists. Doctors are good at getting together and splitting up, he says of the practices continued evolution. After the last election I changed my focus. An aviation enthusiast helicopters, in particular Dr. Kreegel now specializes in flight physicals, a twice-yearly requirement for airline pilots. Doctors who give them must have a pilots license. Dr. Kreegel earned his helicopter rating in the 1990s with the help of Mr. Bettis, a retired commercial pilot who met the doctor during a search for a family physician. Another happenstance. Hes very meticulous and was dedicated to learning the right way to fly. He didnt want to cut corners, says Mr. Bettis. He was a good student and really wanted to learn. He was a fast learner, well prepared and coordinated. Since receiving his license, Dr. Kreegel has flown hundreds of voluntary air search and rescue, medical and law enforcement missions. He was always interested in politics and the effects of legislation on the local community, when former District 72 Florida Rep. Lindsay Harrington approached him about running for his seat. Lindsay was a close and dear friend, Dr. Kreegel recalls. He told me, Im done. You should run. He did and served three terms. Hes proud the legislature passed a balanced budget every year for six years despite a worsening economy. We balanced the budget without raising taxes. During medical missions that took Dr. Kreegel to Ecuador, Nicaragua and Peru, Mr. Acosta saw a doctor lovingly practicing his craft. Paige is a very compassionate man and you could see he wanted to make a difference, says Mr. Acosta. He could speak Spanish pretty well and he made the kids laugh. It was awesome. Dr. Kreegel and Mr. Acosta spent four days in Nicaragua following Hurricane Mitchs massive destruction. We established a clinic right in the middle of a sugar cane field, says Mr. Acosta. It was a little building with two rooms and when we got there we wondered how people were going to find us. In no time there was a huge line. We saw well over 100 patients that morning, then went to another clinic. Dr. Kreegel, says Mr. Acosta, travels with a suitcase packed full of clothes and returns empty handed. He gives the clothes away. Mr. Bettis describes his friend as smart and caring. Hes marveled at Dr. Kreegels tough presence on the floor in Tallahassee and praised his behindthe-scenes compassion in helping war veterans receive enhanced services and the benefits they deserved. Dr. Kreegel, says Mr. Bettis, is also concerned about the future of Americas families. I have three kids coming into this world and the country is in rough shape, says Dr. Kreegel. Our basic freedoms have been eroded. Kids today are not expecting to do better than their parents. Ive spent a lifetime listening to peoples problems and issues and doing something about it, even if it wasnt medical. I have eight years of successful legislative experience, 30 years in medical practice and 55 years of staying out of trouble. Nanci Theoret Tell us about your family. Married to Erika McCarthy, the couple has three children: Savannah, 14, Olivia, 12, and Christian, 10.When did you move to Southwest Florida? I was born in Homestead, Fla., and moved to Punta Gorda in 1983 following my internship in Memphis. Favorite place to relax in Southwest Florida? At our farm in Punta Gorda.Who are your heroes?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 NEWS A11 Curt CLAWSON Please tell us about your family. When did you move to Southwest Florida? I started coming here about 20 years ago, because my parents moved down. And I bought a cottage on Big Hickory Island a couple years ago. I come from a large family, and were close. There were seven of us (children). I dont have kids, but I have a lot of nieces and nephews. What is your favorite place to relax in Southwest Florida? On Big Hickory Island, where I live near my parents. I can go out and oat in the gulf with them, on this gentle sea. Theyre in the autumn of their lives. To be able to spend those moments with themand theyre still well. Nothing can replace that. And watching games with my Dad. But not basketball. Baseball. He wants to watch the Cincinnati Reds.Who are you heroes? My parents, my high school coach, Paul Ehrman, and Coach Gene Keady at Purdue. They were all different: My father never raised his voice with me, even once. Coach Ehrman was a leader, but he made us gure out how to win. Coach Keady was completely different: he was intense, hands-on. And he yelled. It took me awhile to get used to that. But it was all about the group. About playing well for the group. And about winning. The individual didnt matter.What are your hobbies? Im a serious a serious scuba diver. Mostly around the Caribbean. And I sh.Whats the toughest job youve ever had? Hayes Lemmerz, obviously. When I got there, they were in huge debt, the books were dirty, customer relations were on the rocks. How do you handle a situation where none of your choices are good? If none of the choices are good, then I dont have enough information. First, I learn more. Then I call everybody into the kitchen to talk a kitchen cabinet. Different viewpoints are good. You dont have to agree with everybody. You hear what they say, and decide what to do. And second, pray. You dont have to be perfect to pray. We do it because we need help when there are no good options.Favorite works of ction or nonction? I used to read a lot of business books. But I love history. Biographies, military history. When I want to stretch my mind and learn something? Stephen Ambrose. Anything by Ambrose. Does it get better than that? And I might read Doris Kearns Goodwin, for example.Do you have any pets? An aquarium once I get moved back into my cottage, which is being renovated. q&aFIT AS A FIDDLE AND WHIP THIN, BUT TOO TALL AND CONFIDANT TO BE IGNORED, Curt Clawson ambles into Starbucks at about 7 p.m. for a shot of the hard stuff: a milked-up coffee beverage served cold, in a plastic cup. Along with the other hard stuff: a meet with a reporter who wants to ask him personal questions. Served hot, a la carte.COURTESY PHOTOSCurt Clawson as a student and later, with his mother as a graduate. the the h the the Race R R a a c c c c e e e e 19 forMr. Clawson doesnt drink alcohol. Ever. Thats for both moral and health reasons, he explains. I dont judge it, though. Some of my friends will have a glass of wine, or something. Ascetic in temperament and practice, hes also private about his religion. In its service, he spent two years on a mission trip to Argentina following college, he recalls. Now at 54, hes a lot more colorful than the simple white shirt and dark trousers he wears would indicate. But they go nicely with the cropped thatch of graying hair that still rides close above a thin face sometimes reflective, sometimes somber and hooded, and sometimes boyish and grinning. The candidate looks tired. But so what? Im here, Im ready, he says, grinning affably and flashing a characteristic thumbs-up. Hes even ready for a reporters cutesy first move: bringing a basketball to the interview. Can he palm it? I cant palm the ball, never could, he confesses. My hands are too small. I used to have to dunk it with two hands. Maybe he cant palm it, but he can shoot it. He hit the first three-point shot in Purdue University history, in 1984, when he captained a Boilermaker team that gave Hall of Fame Coach Gene Keady, now Mr. Clawsons friend and mentor, his first NCAA Big 10 victory. Coach Keady, who admits to having voted for good Democrats in his time, remembers the moment well in a chat from his hotel room in Dallas, where he has traveled to watch the NCAA Final Four play-off games. He also remembers what he appreciated most about Curt Clawson: Hes competitive, he wants to win, and hes a straight shooter. Hes also very bright. Tell him I said good luck. But attitude and not luck is the engine in Mr. Clawsons ambition. Hell slam dunk balls, fix broken companies, or attempt to patch the leaky ship of state any way he can, which is how he describes his 11 years as CEO of Hayes Lemmerz, an international maker of aluminum wheels. He downsized the company, took it through bankruptcy, and ultimately oversaw its sale in 2011. As a result, hes been energetically accused of callous disregard for employee welfare, among other things. But it wasnt that way, he insists. When I got there, the company was in debt, the books were dirty, customer relations were on the rocks... And one more thing. I never cashed in my stock options, I never took the golden parachute. Thats the get-rich and bail-out option that has given so many CEOs in similar situations a bad name. Richard Wallman, a 15-year friend and former board member of Hayes Lemmerz who worked in top management at both Chrysler and IBM when they downsized and restructured, insists that Mr. Clawson is anything but greedy or callous. Most CEOs are concerned about their compensation first, but he was much less interested in that than he was in his people, he says. In the boardroom, he never yelled or tried to embarrass his people when they said something that wasnt smart. He encouraged them. He wanted them to do well. But responsibility is a stern taskmaster, adds Mr. Wallman: When you have an underperforming part of the business, it drags down the rest of the company, so you have to take action. And thats tough. Thats also arguably a form of team spirit, although one that may apply to businesses and sports teams more than democratic governments and nations, whose underperformers cannot simply be lopped off. Mr. Clawson learned it in part from from Coach Keady. The individual doesnt matter. The only thing that matters is the group that was always the lesson at Purdue, he says. That played well for me because I came from a big, close family. Once, that family not only included his parents and three sisters and brothers the silly, savvy seven, as his mother, Cherie Clawson, still calls her children but it also included his wife. He met her at Harvard University when she was an undergraduate and he was earning an MBA, on leave from his first job at Arvin Industries. Although the couple is now divorced, she is my best friend, he says a woman of African descent, and a writer. We talk every day. Why our marriage ended? Im not going to tell you, and I wont give you her name, either, because she wants to remain private. But she was and is such a huge contributor to what I am. In short, hes a tall Hoosier (once married, no children), who has lived abroad in Argentina, Mexico, Spain, Paris, and elsewhere, he says. A quick study, Mr. Clawson commands either fluency or a good working knowledge of Spanish, Portuguese and French. But his parents and coaches remain his guiding lights, along with their attendant life lessons. I think the most disappointed my father ever was with me happened one day when I didnt protect my older bother on the way home from school, he recalls. He was 9 or 10 at the time. My older brother please be careful how you write this hes a little like Forrest Gump. The most wonderful person. But kids bullied him. And some of them pushed him (down) and I didnt stop it that day. That was the last time he failed to take action, and Mr. Clawson later found himself standing down other bullies, as well, his mother recalls. Hes a protector, a defender, she says. When a boy was bullying a substitute teacher once, Curt told him to stop and the boy knocked him flat. He didnt do anything about it there, in the school hallway. But later he made sure it never happened again. Those experiences created Mr. Clawsons eternal reluctance to join with the cool crowd, as he puts it about college fraternities or exclusive clubs. While studying at Harvard, he won a scholarship to Southeast Asia, where he convinced the Singer Sewing Company, operating on the ground a couple hundred miles away, to set up a factory with wellpaying jobs in a remote, subsistence-level village. That boosted the entire community into the middle class, he notes proudly. He also supports a homeless shelter for young, unwed mothers in Detroit. He reads acquisitively and even aggressively, too formerly books about business, he says, and now often histories such as Doris Kearns Goodwins biography of Lincoln, Team of Rivals. In the book, Ms. Goodwin recounts how Lincoln brought his political enemies into his cabinet to take advantage of their brains and drive, maneuvering the nation through its most desperate hour. But thats not how it is in Washington these days, where the Team part of the democratic equation seems to have been pried away, leaving only the Rivals part. On that unsettling note Mr. Clawson fires off some unsolicited advice to the 535 elected officials in the United States Congress. First, read the Constitution. Second, read Team. And read some macro-economics. If he has it his way, hell be able to convey that advice in person, come summer. Roger Williams ina fol i n b r m d s i A Althou

They landed in France in 1944 on a mission to deceive the Germans about U.S. troop strength and location at strategically important sites in France, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium. Composed of artists and sound technicians, the unit tailored its creations to the mission at hand. They impersonated other units, built and deployed decoy planes, convoys, gun emplacements and even a fake headquarters. They set up realistic radio operations, even mimicking a unit radio operators style, which could be as distinctive as a signature. Their decoys were often left visible to fool enemy reconnaissance flights. Little was known about this top-secret unit until decades after the war. Their creativity saved thousands of lives.

The exhibit brings to life the astonishing exploits of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops through artifacts, rare photographs and in-depth look at the units history. Examples of the wartime artwork created by Ghost Army soldiers are also included, highlighting just how talented these artists, illustrators and architects were at capturing their experiences and those of the civilians they encountered.

Forever.Be a Hero Today | $5 Gets You Started | FinishLineforKids.org From among more than 310,000 employees worldwide working for the Hilton family of brands, a former hotel housekeeper who worked her way up to operations manager at the Doubletree Suites by Hilton Naples earned the coveted distinction of the companys CEO Light 7 Warmth Award. It is the companys highest individual recognition. How did Desiree Dayhoff do it? With as much heart as hard work, plus big doses of integrity and innovation, says Jennifer Wallace, Ms. Dayhoffs boss and general manager of the Doubletree property. Ms. Dayhoff was also part of the team that has earned not one, not two, but 10 Connie awards (named after Conrad Hilton) for the Doubletree. The Connie award recognizes the leading hotel in each brand of the Hilton Worldwide chain. The Cuban-born Ms. Dayhoff has persevered and worked hard for everything she has earned in her life, including her right to become an American citizen. She came to the U.S. in 2006, and with the assistance of Catholic Charities was hired at the Doubletree as a housekeeping supervisor. She earned her citizenship in 2012 and today advocates tirelessly for refugees and asylees. Through the Catholic Charities employment program, she provides job interview preparation and cultural orientation for ESOL students. She teaches English at her workplace to newly resettled refugees and helps them to understand financial and banking tools. She assists with citizenship test preparation and developed Doubletrees H.E.L.P. (Hospitality Excellence Learning Project) training program for refugees, a three-week internship program which helps provide language, housekeeping and hospitality skills in preparation for their first job opportunity. Every day, she strives to enrich her work team members lives with genuine care and compassion. Ms. Dayhoffs parents are chemistry and geography teachers in Cuba. In her youth, she was always surrounded by school materials and started helping other kids learn when she was only 7 years old, bringing fellow students home after school to help them catch up when they fell behind. She had a chalkboard and a bench on the back porch for her after-school math and Spanish class. My mom used to make lemonade for our classes, she says. This is a sweet memory. She earned a bachelors degree in psychology and also studied hospitality management in Cuba, where a three-year hospitality management post-graduate program prepared her for various hotel positions. She worked in tourism in Cuba before coming to the United States. Ms. Dayhoff is vice president of the Collier Advisory Refugee Panel and served as speaker at the 2010 and 2013 State Refugee Consultation in Orlando. She represented Florida at the 2011 National Refugee Consultation in Washington, D.C., and was speaker at the 2012 and 2013 World Refugee Day celebrations in Collier County. She is a 2012 graduate of Growing Associates in Naples, a program of the Leadership Collier Foundation and the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. She and her husband Jeffrey celebrated their first wedding anniversary in January.

My striving for excellence comes from my mom. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A geologist and a psychologist were my favorites. Now that I think about it, that might have been the beginning of my interest in sustainability. What would you be doing if you werent doing this? I think Id be a trainer of some kind. I love taking people from being knowledgeable to being smart. Guilty pleasures: Having a Cuban meal at least once a week. One thing on your bucket list: Write a book. Skill or talent you wish you had: I would love to be able to play the violin. Somehow its melody ful lls me to the point of tears. Next vacation destination: Spain, where the roots of my Cuban culture are. There are so many traditions that I would like to enjoy from their place of origin. Something that makes you laugh: Irony. Smart comedy. Last book you read: Inferno by Dan Brown. I love his books! Its always great to read about hidden information left by people who made a change in humanity, about revealing symbolic messages that can help save our current world. Something youll never understand: Ungratefulness and people who waste their time. I deal with them using my professional tolerance, but sorrow for them is always the feeling left with me. Pet peeve: Procrastination. Future project: To create an English learning tool for immigrant housekeepers. I have prepared some for my team, but would like to have time one day to develop something more detailed and applicable for all hotels. It is a future project for my husband and me. He has helped me with all of the English class materials we utilize at the Doubletree Naples. What the Paradise Coast really needs: Some huge convention or celebration that could generate more opportunities for the area. Now that health tourism is in our vision, I think it could be a great point to start. What are you most proud of? The decision to live in America. I love the way myself and my housekeeping team are belonging to this country. Each realized success or dream come true fuels my life and inspires me to give more.DAYHOFF

In fact, at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, many of the unsung donor heroes are individuals like former board member Gene Windfeldt, who recently donated a sturdy, high-performance fabric Zodiac boat to the Conservancys science research team. Mr. Windfeldts gift will help the water quality research team access areas in shallow backwaters and will also serve as the sea turtle rescue boat for future missions. With its 50th anniversary this year, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida continues to preserve the areas water, air and wildlife through the inspired support of the community as a whole. In addition to the option of making monetary donations, the public can help protect the regions water, land and wildlife by volunteering, becoming a Conservancy member or making a purchase or donating furniture at the Conservancy Upscale Resale Furniture & More store in Naples. Individuals like Mr. Windfeldt help the Conservancy of Southwest Florida take action to influence decision makers to make the right choices to protect our unique natural environment and quality of life. Voices can be heard through citizen action, like the Rally to Tally for Clean Water group that convened in Tallahassee earlier this year. From gathering to save the water quality in the Caloosahatchee River; to volunteering for educational programs that teach people of all ages about the importance of the natural world; to donating highend items for fundraising, each one of us has the potential to impact our region. To experience the ripple effect of the generosity at Conservancy of Southwest Florida, simply visit the von Arx Wildlife Hospital, where an excess of 3,200 injured, sick and orphaned animals are treated each year and many released back into their native habitats. The Nature Center, at every corner of the Conservancys 21 acres, is also a wondrous example of the impact of how generosity and combined efforts can influence nature. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida is just south of The Naples Zoo off Goodlette-Frank Road. For more information or to plan your visit, call 2620304 or go to www.conservancy.org. On behalf of the more than 6,000 supporting f amilies of the C onservancy of Southwest Florida, we thank the numerous citizens, environmental groups and organizations that attended the Big Cypress Swamp advisory panel meeting on March 31 to provide public comment against the proposed exploratory oil drilling east of Golden Gate Estates. I applaud the advisory committee for thoroughly questioning the legality of the permit and for listening to the peoples concerns. The advisory committee voted to recommend that the Florida Department of Environmental Protection deny the permit application based on numerous reasons relating to its inadequacy to demonstrate proper safeguards for protecting water and wildlife. Together we are making a difference. As you may know, the advisory committee was not consulted prior to the FDEPs notice of intent to issue the permit. Now, because of a court challenge, the advisory committee and citizens were given the opportunity to provide input on the project. The judge asked that the advisory panel review the permit and provide recommendations to FDEP. He will consider those recommendations as well when making his decision about the legality of the permit. Based on their own expert findings, along with input and support from citizens, the Big Cypress Swamp advisory panel correctly uncovered the threats this proposed drilling project poses to our water supply and to native wildlife. Our work is not complete. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida understands and supports the need for energy independence. However, we will continue to oppose drilling in inappropriate locations or by inappropriate methods that leave our water supply and wildlife unacceptably at risk, as this drilling proposal does. Working with other partner environmental organizations and concerned citizens, we accomplished something significant in protecting Southwest Floridas unique natural environment. But we will need to remain vigilant, because this is only one of many drilling proposals located in or adjacent to environmentally sensitive areas coming forward for our area. Robert Moher is president and CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 A18 Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink. Such a clich but so true. Even water from city municipalities is safe, however, it is treated with chemicals that can possibly have long term effects on our health. The water we consume for drinking is often purchased from large bulky bottles or the pricey smaller serving bottled water, which is a separate environmental issue. To properly treat water for human consumption, the city municipalities use a combination of chlorine and ammonia, called Chloramines. This substance is deadly to sh in aquariums and is not used in dialysis treatments for kidney patients. The long term exposure to chloramines is unknown. This is why many families opt to purchase drinking water. At Clean Water America, we can help you save money and live better by installing a system that is completely safe by creating an osmosis effect on your water from your kitchen sink. This water is ltered without huge costs and basically can pay for itself within a short time. This system requires very little maintenance and will allow your family to enjoy great tasting water.

Continued independent living. Less risk of car crashesJob security in the paperwork mineThe trucks full of paperwork come every day, wrote The Washington Post in March, down a country road in Boyers, Pa., north of Pittsburgh, and descend into the earth to deliver federal retiree applications to the eight supermarket-sized caverns 230 feet below ground where Office of Personnel Management bureaucrats process them manually and store them in 28,000 metal filing cabinets. Applications thus take 61 days on average to process (compared to Texas automated system, which takes two). One step requires a records index to be digitized but a later step requires that the digital portion be printed out for further manila-foldered file work. OPM blames contractors technology failures and bizarrely complicated retirement laws, but no relief is in sight except the hiring of more workers (and fortunately, cave-bound paper-shuffling is a wellregarded job around Boyers).The continuing crisis In February, officials in Sudan seized at least 70 female sheep that had male sexual organs sewn on the result of livestock smugglers trying to circumvent export restrictions. (Ewes are valued more highly, and their sale is limited.) Authorities had been treating the inspections as routine until they spotted one ram urinating from the female posture. Karma: Michael Schell, 24, and Jessica Briggs, 31, were arrested on several charges in Minot, N.D., in February when police were called to a convenience store because Mr. Schell and Ms. Briggs had commandeered a restroom and were having noisy sex. The store is part of the Iowa-based chain of 400 serving the Midwest that go by the name Kum & Go. Democracy blues U.S. Rep. Robert Andrews announced his retirement in February, after 23 years of representing his New Jersey district, and in tribute, The Washington Post suggested he might be the least successful lawmaker of the past two decades, in that he had sponsored a total of 646 pieces of legislation more than any of his contemporaries but that not a single one became law. In fact, Mr. Andrews has not accomplished even the easiest of all bill-sponsoring to name a post office or a courthouse. November election returns for the city council of Flint, Mich., revealed that voters chose two convicted felons (Wantwaz Davis and Eric Mays) and two other candidates who had been through federal bankruptcy. Mr. Davis never publicized his 1991 second-degree murder plea, but said he talked about it while campaigning. (The Flint Journal acknowledged that it had poorly vetted Mr. Davis record.) Inexplicable The Internal Revenue Service reportedly hit the estate of Michael Jackson recently with a federal income tax bill of $702 million because of undervaluing properties that it owned including a valuation on the Jackson-owned catalog of Beatles songs at zero. The estate reckoned that Mr. Jackson was worth a total of $7 million upon his death in 2009, but IRS placed the number at $1.125 billion. (In 2012 alone, according to Forbes magazine, Mr. Jackson earned more than any other celebrity, living or dead, at about $160 million.) The North Somerset office of Britains National Health Service issued a formal apology in January to Leanda Preston, 31, who had accused it of racism because of the pass phrase she received to access the system for an appointment to manage her fibromyalgia. Ms. Preston, who is black, had received the random, computer-generated pass phrase charcoal shade, which she complained was offensive, demonstrating that NHS therefore lacked decency and common sense. Unclear on the conceptA Florida appeals court tossed out an $80,000 anti-discrimination settlement in February because the beneficiarys teenage daughter could not refrain from bragging about it even though the terms of the settlement required confidentiality. Gulliver Proprietary School in Miami had offered the sum to former headmaster Patrick Snay to make Mr. Snays lawsuit go away, but Dana Snay almost immediately told her 1,200 Facebook friends that Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. Suck it. Wrote the court, (Snays) daughter did precisely what the confidentiality agreement was designed to prevent. PerspectiveA controversial landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2005 for the first time allowed a city to force unwilling owners to sell private property not for a school or police station or other traditional municipal necessity, but just because a developer promised to improve the neighborhood. Consequently, longtime residents such as Susette Kelo were forced off their land because the city of New London, Conn., had hopes of a prosperous buildup anchored by a new facility from the drugmaker Pfizer. The Weekly Standard magazine reported in February that, nine years down the road, Pfizer has backed out, and the 90-acre area of New London in which Ms. Kelo and others were bulldozed off of is waist-high in weeds an even worse blight than that which New London sacrificed private property rights in order to prevent.

As her collection grew, she and some orchid friends took a class in orchidology at the University of Florida. An AOS-accredited judge since 2003, she currently serves a vice chair of the West Palm Beach judging center and is a director of the International Orchid Foundation.

The Marco Island Center for the Arts final evening in this seasons Up Close and Personal series focuses on the 1,000-year-old Asian art form of bonsai and takes place from 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, April 17, at the center. Marco Island Bonsai Society members Mike Mickes, Todd Murvine, Larry Kackstein and Harold Boston will discuss and demonstrate the basics of growing and caring for bonsai, which can literally be translated as tray planting. Though usually associated with Japan, bonsai tree cultivation actually originated in China, where the trees eventually came to be associated with the religion of Zen Buddhism. Bonsai uses cultivation techniques such as pruning, root reduction, potting, defoliation and grafting to produce small trees that mimic the shape and style of mature, full-size trees. Every branch and twig of a bonsai is shaped or eliminated until an aesthetically appealing image is achieved. The evening will include a light buffet as well as wine and a sample of sake. There will also be a display of various bonsai specimens and a raffle with bonsai as prizes. Admission is $30. The Marco Island Center for the Arts is at 1010 Winterberry Drive.

While this dilemma might not affect you personally, it probably hits closer to home than you think. In Collier County and Bonita Springs alone, there are more than 1,500 families that have trouble providing diapers for their babies. According to a study published in the Journal of Pediatrics (July 29, 2013), diaper need the inability to afford to keep a child in clean diapers affects one out of three low-income, working moms and babies in the United States each day. Baby Basics of Collier County has been addressing the local need since 2004, when it was formed by part-time Neapolitan Jean Ann Lynch, founder of several similar operations elsewhere and of the Baby Basics national umbrella organization. So how does it work? Families interested in the program are referred from local social service agencies and screened for qualification. Among the criteria: They must have at least one working parent or guardian, they must demonstrate financial need, and they cannot be receiving federal or state cash assistance. Those families who meet the criteria come to the closest distribution site once a month to pick up a free supply of diapers. Over the past nine years in Collier County, Baby Basics has grown from helping 10 babies to 345 babies each month. Total diapers provided recently reached 3 million. More than 160 donors, volunteers and friends gathered to celebrate the milestone raised more than $20,000 to continue the organizations mission. Distributing our 3 millionth diaper was indeed a major milestone in Baby Basics history, Mrs. Lynch says. We feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve the families and children of our community, but we cant rest on our successes because the need continues to be so great. Baby Basics of Collier Countys next event is its Mothers Day Tea at the Ritz beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort. Tickets are $100. For reservations for the Mothers Day tea, contact Mrs. Lynch by calling (617) 510-4468 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about Baby Basics, visit www.

His position has been that the health-car e needs of Est ero and Bonita Springs residents are provided by the 261bed North Naples Hospital. In Mr. Nathans message to Estero and Bonita Springs, he said Lee Memorial Health System purchased land along Coconut Road nearly 10 years ago. He said health system officials were aware their request to build a hospital might be turned down by the regulatory agency. Over the last several months we have been exploring our options, Mr. Nathan wrote. Envision a complex medical neighborhood where the patient no longer has to choose between his health wellness needs and his episodic medical intervention needs because he can access both at one comprehensive center. This concept goes well beyond a typical outpatient center or surgery center. Bonita Springs Mayor Ben Nelson received Mr. Nathans message via email and called it a reasonable and professional response. Mr. Nelson indicated he didnt want to get into a discussion about a preference between Lee Memorial and Naples Community Hospital. Mr. Nathan wrote in his message that he hopes hospital officials will be in a position to present such a model to the (Lee Memorial Health System) board in June. He concluded his message to the Estero and Bonita Springs communities by writing, Maybe it is trite to say that we are turning lemons into lemonade, but we are excited about this opportunity and look forward to meeting with you soon to explore its possibilities.

The fun begins at 11 a.m. with a parade of boats decked out to this years Zombies in Paradise theme in hopes of winning the $1,000 best-dressed prize. Long-time emcee and race founder Vin DePasquale of The Dock restaurant will be joined by co-emcee Jerry Conti. John Cox, president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, will serve as grand marshal of the race. An important element of the race is the $5,000 grant awarded to a local childrens charity each year. This years beneficiary is Drug Free Collier; funds from the Great Dock Canoe Race will support drug and alcohol abuse prevention clubs, known as the CORE Society, at Naples High School and Gulfview Middle School. Funding will provide materials for the school-wide and community outreach initiatives led by students and compensation of the faculty advisor who works with the students each week. New CORE clubs are starting at other schools throughout Collier County. After the parade of decorated boats, the Great Dock Canoe Race sets out in three heats. First up at 11:45 a.m. is the Tippycanoe VIP Sprint, which features canoes paddled by principals of local organizations in a madcap dash through a 700-yard course. Two traditional races follow on the full 3-mile course; handicaps for male-female teams (two minutes) and female-female teams (four minutes) lend extra excitement to these two races. This year, for the first time, paddlers vying for the Practically Professionals overall trophy will set out at 12:45 p.m. About 10 minutes later, those who are racing largely for the fun of it will set off. Those race categories are: Ambitious Amateurs, Next Generation (12to 17-year-olds paddling with a parent or guardian) and Truly Tenacious (both canoeists age 65 or older). This means therell be some contra-flow as teams pass each other racing in opposite directions, with the hoped-for result being a tighter race overall and more interest for spectators. In addition to The Dock, this years race is sponsored by Riverwalk at Tin City. Underwriting for the VIP Sprint is provided by the Lutg ert Companies/Lutgert Insurance/ Premier Sothebys International Realty and First National Bank of the Gulf Coast.

That sentiment perfectly summarizes the role and contribution of the 1,200-plus volunteers we have throughout the NCH system. This year we celebrate the 60th anniversary our downtown volunteers and, next year, the 25th anniversary of our North Naples Auxiliary. As much as I wish I could name every single volunteer who means so much to us, instead I will point out a few in particular who embody the good works of all our volunteers. Bill Rank has been with NCH for 22 years and is one of the first people our visitors encounter as he transports them around the downtown campus in his golf cart. Beyond his transporting duties, Bill has truly made a difference in the lives of others by donating blood and platelets (51 gallons as of this month). Our White Elephant shop reopened in November with the assistance of many volunteers and now has a new look, a new layout and an additional sale day. It was many years ago that Beatrice Briggs, first chair of the NCH board of trustees, and a few other volunteers organized our very first white elephant rummage sale. The success of that event led to the White Elephant that we know today. This legacy lives on in the person of Thelma Hodges, who next year will celebrate her 60th year at NCH, first as an R.N. and later as a volunteer at the White Elephant. One recent Saturday, the volunteer NICU Snugglers joined forces with the NICU staff for their first-ever reunion with the NICU babies and their parents. Carolyn Bellefeuille, chair of the Snugglers volunteers, recalled the moment that a stroller came rolling into the Telford Auditorium carrying triplets who had been NICU babies; HEALTHY LIVING SEE WEISS, A35 SEE INITIATIVE, A35 Three doctors blend their talents to better serve children and familiesAt the end of every day, I know Ive made a difference, says Dr. Maribel Rivera, David Lawrence Centers adult, child and adolescent psychiatrist. Dr. Rivera works with migrant farm workers and their families living in Immokalee, where nearly half the residents live below the poverty line and many struggle daily to access adequate healthcare. She sees children at DLCs main Naples location off of Golden Gate Parkway and also at the centers Immokalee satellite services office. This isnt easy work, she confesses. The issues these people face are complex, and their needs are vast. Immokalee isnt like Naples. Without access to adequate treatment, behavioral health problems go undiagnosed or untreated and can affect all aspects of life, be it school, work and/or family. Recognizing that the most effective way to foster and ensure the future health of any community is in the early identification and treatment of its children, the Naples Children & Education Foundation launched the $4 million Childrens Mental Health Initiative, teaming Dr. Rivera with Immokalee-based psychologist and professor Dr. Javier Rosado and psychologist Dr. Emily Ptaszek in an effort to design a holistic system of mental health care for children. Mental health issues cut across all families, all communities, says Anne Welsh McNulty, NCEF board member and co-chair of the foundations 2014 Naples Winter Wine Festival. The initiative, she adds, aims to fundamentally transform and expand mental health care for at-risk children in Collier County. Through an NCEF grant, a team of professionals from DLC, Florida State University College of Medicine and the Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida has come together to create better overall access to mental health care. Their program integrates mental health treatment with local pediatric practices and other primary care professionals and strengthens the links among providers such as the school system, social service agen-cies, health care and commuBY CARYN HACKER-BUECHELSpecial to Florida Weekly allenWEISSallen.email@example.com HACKER-BUECHEL
nity mental health professionals. Those who historically have been without support and direction are too often lost in the shuffle of a confusing and intimidating health-care system, Dr. Ptaszek says. Frequently, those in need of mental health care arent able to follow through on referrals made by their doctor due to unmet basic needs, acute stress, lack of transportation, inability to plan, etc., she adds. By integrating behavioral and primary care, she explains, the Childrens Mental Health Initiative makes it possible to visit with a behavioral health provider in the pediatric office, where the child/ family is already comfortable with their pediatrician. Drs. Rivera, Rosado and Ptaszek utilize a team to identify and treat varied physical and mental health issues. From the local pediatricians office, where screening occurs, to treatment planning and ultimately carrying out the plan, families receive the best of care in a holistic and often bior tri-lingual environment. Depending on the severity and complexity of the childs case, services can include clinical evaluations, comprehensive psychiatric assessments, medical management, outpatient counseling, family therapy, community-based therapeutic services, case management and crisis stabilization. Dr. Rosado grew up near Plant City and says he knew when he accepted the Immokalee position that the effort would be challenging. I realize how important it is to understand and respect the lifestyle of the people who live in Immokalee, he says. They are a strong and resilient community. This isnt a job that most people are willing to do, but my life is richer for knowing these families. The Childrens Mental Health Initiative allows for early detection and treatment for the poorest, most underserved children in Collier County. The symbiotic effect of combining resources can only serve to exponentially help these families in need. We know that the earlier you indentify a physical or mental health issue and the earlier you treat that issue, the better the prognosis is, David Lawrence Center CEO Scott Burgess says. At times, the families of Immokalee seem distant from the Naples community, and yet they are an integral part of our small city life. Drink our local orange juice and enjoy fresh local vegetables and you can feel the spirits of the hard workers who helped create them. The Childrens Mental Health Initiative recognizes their participation and unique hardships, as well as those of their children and other family members. Integrated care helps these families overcome barriers to seeking treatment, making prevention and early intervention much more likely, says Dr. Ptaszek. Thanks to this grant, this is not the next generation of health care in Collier County; it is health care today, right here. The initiative is one of several inventive countywide initiative partnerships with DLC that blend the talents of other professionals and providers to increase the value and effectiveness of treatment. The partners have also worked closely with the National Alliance on Mental Illness to reduce and eliminate duplication of services, maximize resources and increase the availability of high-quality, best-practice approaches. The center also pairs with schools, sheriffs departments, hospitals and other intervention programs to treat the local and extended community.

And there wasnt a dry eye in the house. Last August, Heather Baker, director of the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging & Rehabilitation, and Amanda Smith, director of volunteers, started the brain injury peer mentor program at the 54-bed center. NCH was the first health-care system in Florida to form a relationship with the Georgiabased Brain Injury Peer Visitor Association. Through this alliance, local brain injury survivors are trained to become volunteer resources for our patients and their families, fostering recovery and serving as role models in connecting with people who have had similar events in their lives. Thus far, 111 survivors and 106 caregivers have benefited from our volunteers. Soon, NCH will expand this program to acute care and outpatient rehab areas. We are thankful for every one of the 1,273 volunteers who so heroically and graciously represent NCH in our community.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickAre there straitjackets for dogs? Thats what Ive been wondering lately as we struggle to medicate the ears of Keeper, one of our cavalier King Charles spaniels. Cavaliers are supposed to be among the most biddable of breeds, but you wouldnt know it from him. Its like wrestling a bear to get him to hold still. One night, I waited until he was settled on my lap, which worked somewhat better, but I still think I got more medication on the sofa than in his ears. The next morning, I used a little psychological tactic that has worked well in the past when there are multiple dogs in the home. Gather some treats. Call the dog you dont want. Usually they will all come running anyway if they know you have treats. Pick up the dog who doesnt need treatment and put her on the treatment area (on top of the dryer in our house). Give her a treat, comb her or fondle her ears, give her lots of praise and then give more treats. Set her down. (Adjust this advice as needed for large dogs.) By this time, the dog who needs medication or grooming is eager to undergo treatment, too. Repeat, giving lots of treats and praise before, during and after medicating the ears, brushing the teeth or whatever it is your dog doesnt like you to do. Voila! Medicated ears with a minimum of fuss. Easter is coming up, bringing the reminder that Easter lilies are highly toxic to cats. The leaves, flowers, pollen and even the water in the vase can all cause severe and possibly fatal kidney failure in your cat. Do not bring these flowers into your home. If you receive them as a gift, pass them on to a catfree neighbor or friend. Your wallet will thank you for saving it from a very expensive veterinary bill. More cool pet products.

I have learned this recently because when Im not sparkling at soirees, I fancy myself an actress. Ive actually been doing this acting thing for about 25 years (I started when I was 2 OK, that is a lie), and while Ive had to learn some challenging things for various roles over the years, nothing measures up to flamenco dancing. The play Im in rehearsal for now is a brand new one, Heart Song by Stephen Sachs (read more about the show on page C1 this week). It opens Friday, April 25, at Florida Repertory Theatre, so the good news is that I have a couple more weeks to continue honing my flamenco skills. The even better news is that Im playing one of six women in a flamenco class, so I dont have to be that good. I mean, if my character was an awesome dancer, she wouldnt be in class, right? This is what I keep telling myself anyway as I trip over my own feet in the noisiest stomping shoes ever. And while stomping is great for getting out aggression, stomping also hurts. In fact, a lot of flamenco hurts. Then again, its sort of supposed to. In fact, our gorgeous, talented choreographer, Carolina Esparza, often asks, after weve been holding our arms in the air (chests out, stomachs in, elbows rounded) repeating munecas (I dont think theres an English word to describe munecas its rolling your wrists and fanning your fingers, and it looks pretty), Does it hurt? Yes, we pout. Good! she responds. That means youre doing it correctly. When it comes to dancing, I truly make Elaine on Seinfeld look like Shakira. Not only do I posses two left feet, I lack any sense of rhythm whatsoever. But I love to dance at parties and such, and in my mind, I am quite good. (As long as I dont catch myself in a mirror, everything is fine.) When I was a younger actress, I was certain that I could sing. I sang wonderfully in the shower and I could really belt out a tune in the car, so I decided to audition for a musical. In fact, I was certain that I was such an amazing singer that I auditioned to play Maria in a community theater production of The Sound of Music. I didnt really know any musical theater songs, so I treated the director to an a cappella version of Happy Birthday. You can imagine my dismay when he told me, in no uncertain terms, that I was clinically tone deaf. Ive tried to prove him wrong ever since then, but even very close friends and loved ones continue pleading with me not to sing. Luckily, there is no singing in Heart Song. But the dancing is plentiful. And even though my technique isnt the best, especially when it comes to moving my feet and arms at the same time, Im hoping doing this show will have the Kirstie Alley Dancing-With-The-Stars effect on me and all this sweating and kicking and undulating will reduce me to a size 2 by the time the show closes in mid May, just as swimsuit season begins in earnest. What with all the munecas, at least my wrists will be skinny. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B4 BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com There are seemingly endless events at which fruitful business connections can be established.

Revisit your life insurance policiesMention life insurance in social conversation and your listeners eyes might glaze over. Cold calls from life insurance professionals are often met with short, terse terminations. Print the words life insurance in a column headline and some readers will automatically turn to another page (if youre still with me, stick around). Such is the unfortunate characterization of a much needed financial product and some of the professionals consulting in this asset class. Why the range of reactions from disinterest to intense dislike? Possibly, as David Jones of David M. Jones & Associates says, because life insurance is the most misunderstood... and poorly explained financial product. Many in the industry have narrow financial exposure, having brokered a sole asset class of life insurance; some are young in life and experience, having gained entrance through merely passage of a test (on the heels of a 40-hour course); some are career agents, only selling their firms products (unless the insurance applicant is denied by their firms underwriting). Many of the products are complex and, even with clear explanation, they are misunderstood. Many of the assumptions used to create the illustration of how the life policy will look/ expected to perform in future years have changed. And there are changes by the client: many a policy was created in earlier years to assure a familys financial security (e.g., basic coverage in case there is pre mature death of the breadwinner) but in later years, the purpose of the life insurance policy changes to become part of a sophisticated estate tax minimization plan. It is not for this column to sing life insurances praises for old or young; it is not for this column to explain the ins and outs of all policies. But it is to sound an alarm that policyholders really need to bring their inforce policies to their existing and/or original underwriting agents to get an up-to-date assessment. The owners of the policies need to intermittently understand how the policy is performing relative to original expectations and illustrations and understand how older policies are performing relative to new types of life insurance products previously not available. You should review your policy not just with the issuing agent or companys representative. You should take your policy and the current in force illustrations to other insurance agents, especially those who can offer a multitude of different products from different companies. According to Mr. Jones, Many agents owe their duties to their employer if they are a captive agent of that company. Recommending a superior replacement policy with a competing carrier is often forbidden. How might a comparative assessment of your excising policy help? If you have term insurance, you can visit with your agent to see if a life insurance company is offering term at more competitive rates. It is certainly true that within a 10-year period of time, term rates have dropped as term polices have been repriced to reflect improved longevity of the overall population. A new policy might reflect those new mortality tables. If you have an older life policy, you absolutely need to understand if the policy is performing in line with the assumptions made at the time of its original issue. For policies that were issued in the 1980s and 1990s, a lot has changed much to the policy holders detriment, says Mr. Jones. Because interest rates have dropped dramatically in the past 25 years, it would be surprising if an older non-guaranteed policy is in line with original policy illustrations. These older policies assumed a continuation of then existing higher interest rates to be paid on their large bond portfolio and, in turn, the new policies assumed the insurance company would be able to pay their insureds rates of return on the cash value at rates higher than the guaranteed minimum rate. Assumptions of 8 percent in 1990s were common. Nowadays, if you want that return, you will have to make a switch to policies that give you some of the upside in the equity market such as an indexed universal life policy.You want see if a replacement policy would offer a net benefit (after the cost of a replacement policy) based on todays more favorable mortality tables. In the past 20 to 30 years, great strides in medicine have appreciably extended mortality for men and women. When insurance was priced 25 years ago, the policy was more expensive as policyholders were thought to die sooner. New policies sold today generally have a more beneficial mortality table. You might think you can keep your old policy and ask the insurance company to update the mortality table but thats usually not how it works. The net of it is that replacement of a policy, long held to be unacceptable and costly to the insured, might really save the insured money by taking advantage of new insurance products, exiting policies that will never perform in line with expectations and might soon lapse, and taking advantage of better mortality rates. Older policyholders should not be forlorn; there is possibly some very good news. If theyre still healthy and are able to be medically underwritten and they have built up a large cash value in the older policy, they will have options to replace their policy with a new policy that can still get them to their goal, said Mr. Jones. Many who bought a policy 20 years ago when aged 60 can now find a life insurance policy at age 80 that is less costly and offers better returns. Bottom line: Take the time to make a review of your life insurances a priority. Mr. Jones regularly reviews older policies to determine if a policyholder may secure increased mortality and benefit while reducing premium payments.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. How Millions and Billions Are MadeIf you think youll get rich by buying and selling lots of stocks frequently, think again. Some billionaires have made their fortunes by trading, but a more common path has been simply sticking with a healthy and growing company. Billionaires such as Warren Buffett, Carlos Slim Helu, Bill Gates and Larry Ellison have accumulated billions by owning a single strong company, often one they founded.Fortunately, we dont have to found our own hugely successful company. We can simply find a few and invest in them for a long time. So what are the shared characteristics of the companies many billionaires have owned? A sustainable competitive advantage that keeps them at the forefront of their industries. A shareholder-friendly management team that, preferably, owns a big piece of the company, giving them a meaningful stake in its success. A solid balance sheet, featuring little or manageable debt. A business that pumps out lots of cash. Remember that such companies were small in their early days. You can find promising smaller companies with billionaire-making traits at fool.com/investing/ index.aspx. Remember, too, that you can decrease your risk by diversifying, spreading your money across a bunch of companies perhaps 10 to 15, as long as youll have the time and skill to follow their progress. Many people dont have such time or skill, though, so consider taking the wealthbuilding advice of a billionaire. Warren Buffett has explained in his most recent letter to shareholders that the average investor should own a crosssection of businesses that in aggregate are bound to do well. A low-cost S&P 500 index fund will achieve this goal.Buffett also notes that investors should accumulate shares over a long period and not sell when the market drops. He even notes that in his will, hes instructed a trustee to put 10 percent of the cash in short-term government bonds and 90 percent in a very low-cost S&P 500 index fund. (I suggest Vanguards.)Great wealth can be built with patience. Catch a Falling Knife On the basis of a friends recommendation that he based on a marketing report, I purchased 300 shares of WorldCom in early 2001. As the price plummeted, I purchased 400 additional shares and rode this investment all the way down to zero. S., onlineThe Fool Responds: Youre in good company, as many investors have made this same mistake, seeing a falling stock as more and more of a bargain as its price drops. Remember, though, that while its not uncommon for a great companys stock to temporarily fall, its also often the case that a stock is dropping for a good reason.Never buy shares of a falling stock without undertaking extra due diligence. You need to be confident that the companys problems are short-term ones (such as the completion of a new factory running late) and not potentially long-term ones (such as a flagship product falling out of favor or deteriorating profit margins).If you find that you dont have confidence in the company anymore, consider selling all your shares, even at a loss, and moving the remaining dollars into a more promising holding. Priceline.com in FlightMight you be interested in a stock that features average annual growth of nearly 50 percent over the past decade, and that still seems undervalued? Thought so. Meet Priceline.com (Nasdaq: PCLN), the growth leader in the online travel industry.You may know it as the name-your-ownprice site for getting plane tickets, but it has grown into much more. Its Priceline Group offers online airline tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars, vacation packages and cruises, serving more than 180 countries and territories. Its Booking.com service is the global leader in online hotel reservations. In 2013 it bought KAYAK, a top site for comparing prices of flights, hotel rooms and car rentals.Priceline is well diversified geographically, and emerging markets in Asia and Latin America offer enormous potential. The company is also adapting to the mobile revolution at full speed, with Booking.com sporting more than $8 billion in gross mobile bookings in 2013.In recent years, Priceline has been outperforming its competition and gaining market share. In fiscal 2013, it took in $6.8 billion in revenue, up 29 percent over 2012, and $1.9 billion in net earnings, up 33 percent.Despite that rapid growth, the companys forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio was recently only around 20, suggesting that Priceline still offers plenty of upside potential, especially in the long run. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Priceline.com and its newsletters have recommended the stock.) I began in 1969 as a national wholesale food distributor. Today, based in Houston and raking in $44 billion annually, Im the leader in supplying food and related products and services to anywhere meals are prepared outside the home a $235 billion market. (That means restaurants, hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, cruise ships, sports venues and more.) My 48,000plus employees serve about 425,000 customers and operate from nearly 200 locations. I deliver roughly 1.3 billion cases annually and offer more than 400,000 products, including 40,000 bearing my own name. Im a Systems and Services Company. Who am I? (Answer: Sysco) Meet MyRAQCan you explain what President Obamas new MyRA accounts are? T.S., BaltimoreAMyRA is short for My Retirement Account, and its designed to help workers whose employers dont offer retirement accounts such as 401(k)s. As President Obama explained in his 2014 State of the Union address, Its a new savings bond that encourages folks to build a nest egg. MyRA guarantees a decent return with no risk of losing what you put in. Contributions will be made via payroll deduction, and they can be as low as $5 (though, of course, the more you sock away, the better). The accounts will charge no fees, and employers will not have to administer them or make matching contributions. MyRAs will work like Roth IRAs, with ultimate withdrawals in retirement being tax-free. Accounts can move with workers from one job to another. A MyRA can be rolled into a Roth IRA at any time, but doing so is mandatory once it grows to $15,000. Unlike many retirement accounts, MyRA accounts will be protected from market losses and backed by the U.S. government. Funds rolled into a Roth IRA wont have that protection, but, importantly, money in a Roth can be shifted into fastergrowing investments, such as an S&P 500 index fund. ***QWhat is a trust? M.R., Flagstaff, Ariz.AOften part of an estate plan, a trust is a legal structure that features someone (a trustor) giving control of property to a person or an institution (the trustee) for the benefit of someone else (the beneficiary). The beneficiary owns the property, but the trustee controls it usually for a limited period (such as until the beneficiary reaches a certain age).Got a question for the Fool?

Because most students in MBA programs nationwide will never have that military experience, he adds, he has condensed what he learned in the service into 10 essential principles. Here are his aphorisms that apply to both military and business endeavors: Take the offensive to win. Defense alone never wins. There have been numerous efforts in history to construct some form of impregnable defense that will withstand all invaders; ultimately, none were successful. Whether in war, sports or the business world, victory depends upon taking some kind of offensive initiative. When defense is necessary, fall back carefully, with a plan and while firing. Your best defense is often your best offense. Be prepared to use your last option to decimate an invader, but only if you must. Infantry officers call it the FPL final protective line. Like an overdrive on a vehicle, an FPL uses all weaponry to fire at once, continuously firing down a single pre-planned, narrow lane. Depending on the stakes, parties at a business negotiation, for example, should know their FPL option. The counterattack. Remember, the easiest time to resume the offensive is immediately. If youve been forced off a hill or into an undesirable position, regroup and counterattack. A good general always has enough troops. Whether youre a general, lieutenant, private or middle manager, make sure you marshal your resources wisely. For the layperson, that might translate to never making a purchase you cant afford. Never take a weak front. In war, a weak front is often just a lure to tempt the opponent to attack; taking a weak front is like taking the bait in a trap. In business, be skeptical of potential weak fronts. Never sleep while on guard duty. At Texmark Chemicals, sleeping, dozing, napping or drifting off is an unforgivable sin for a shift operator, which is the equivalent of guard duty during wartime. Vigilance is the key to surviving and winning war, even during lulls in the action. Do not heed the voices of caution too much. If the general listens mainly to the quartermaster, who is in charge of supplies, the army will never maneuver. While supplies are essential for survival, it is the risk takers who enjoy victory. Have a primary and a secondary objective. In a military unit or in a business team, you should have one clearly defined primary objective, understood by all persons in the unit. If a secondary objective becomes absolutely essential, it is better to have one in place than it is to be forced to create one during the heat of combat. Clean the lint off the helix. This quote refers to the screen on clothes dryers that catches lint and frequently needs to be cleared. Cutting corners (overlooking the helix) can ruin an officers uniform an important part of the military and business community.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 edited transcripts of what they said. Trish Leonard, marketing director Florida Small Business Development Center at FGCU It may appear obvious, but its worth repeating: do what you said youd do, Ms. Leonard said. So many times when you go to a networking event you collect millions of cards and say, Hey Ill call you and do you? And if you meet someone with shared interests, she adds, try to meet in a more personal setting. Try to at least set up smaller coffee settings. All the different chamber functions or after hours, its very difficult to do business because people are socializing more. Lunch and learns, youre educating yourself. Light breakfast networking you can probably get a little bit more one on one time with the people We tell our small business (owners) at least network once a week, but look at whats out there. Melissa Cofta, marketing and public relations account manager, Priority Marketing, Fort Myers I wouldnt suggest going to a meeting and just walking around throwing your business card at people. I would really engage in some meaningful conversations and ask a lot of questions and listen. Engage in a real conversation and make it like a two-way dialogue and not that youre just pushing your initiative, but that youre genuinely trying to get to know someone else. Over time if you have meaningful conversations with people and connect on a genuine level I think youll see that really return. And then it becomes more fun. Learn about a project theyre working on or a cause theyre passionate about, follow up and connect them with what theyre looking for. That sets up ongoing relationships where I can call on them down the road Most of my friendships have started with meeting someone in a professional setting and then its turned into friendships. Always my most meaningful networking connections have to do with making an impact on someone else. Those are always the best, or helping someone get a job or an interview. A lot of people tell me they see me everywhere, but there are only really a small handful of things that I go to so I just try to choose: what am I interested in? Who am I trying to meet or connect with again? What causes or businesses mean the most to me professionally or even just whats good for your schedule. Brenda OConnor, executive director of membership, Naples Yacht ClubIf your networking opportunity takes place at an event with a roomful of people, try to scan the room when you arrive and make note of those you wish to interact with, as not all encounters will be random. However, when you are in a conversation, give it your undivided attention. It is so rude to look over the persons shoulder to see who you want to talk to next. If the event is large and features few guests that you already know, assume the attitude that people actually want to meet you and walk right up to them and introduce yourself. Ask them a polite question to start the conversation. Otherwise you may be relegated to grazing the buffet tables trying to look busy. A difficult task for many, but so important: do whatever it takes to remember names of people you have met. Take business cards everywhere. They may seem old fashioned, but it is said they are making a comeback. In my opinion, they never went out of style. Besides the obvious planned business encounters, have them with you while running errands, even at formal social events. Be sure to collect cards. After an event, follow up with those you have met within 48 hours. Use the cards to make notes to self regarding an article you promised to forward or whatever the case may be. To not follow up leaves a bad impression. It is also wise to send notes to those new contacts, handwritten if possible. You will be remembered for sure. Barry Seidman, fine art photographer, Palm Beach Gardens My wife and I, we go to the parties, we go to the openings. If you saw my email and my Facebook page its just invitations every day to go somewhere. You go there and you have your business cards in your pocket as every real estate person does as well. I prefer to think of it as socializing because networking sounds like Im working all the time and Im really not, Im having a good time. Im shooting a series. Ive been stalking the green markets during season and Ive been photographing vegetables. My working title is food Id rather photograph than eat. This past week one of the farms that sells at the green markets they were having what they call a pig roast. It was up in Indiantown so we went up there and there were like 50 people and farmers at one point we met a woman there who does some writing she said, when youre ready to show, just send me an email, Id like to cover it. The idea of networking and meeting these farmers, meeting this food blog person, it sometimes pays off. I dont do it consciously to drum up business for myself but how can it hurt? I have no specific goals that I go to an event to accomplish I just dont do that because its not all business, because Im there to have a good time, to have fun. Terri Williams, relationship banker Calusa National Bank Punta GordaPeople always come to me and say, I hear you know how to break into this community. Its all about repetition. The whole adage, who you know, who you like, who you trust, is never more true than in this community. To go to a meeting once or twice, its not going to resonate with them. But its showing up to community events, its showing up in our community, its going to multiple chamber events. Its making sure people know who you are. And at events, Ms. Williams said, instead of talking about the bank itself, she talks up her clients businesses instead. People want to know, shes talking about her clients I want her, when I cant get away from my desk, to talk about me. The biggest thing is you have to work it. Its a lot of business after hours. Its a lot of ribbon-cuttings, its a lot of lunches. Consistent visibility is the most important thing in this community. Im in sales so I have a thirst for knowledge and I love just listening to somebody and getting to know someone. Tim Harris, Realtor and past president of the Realtors Association of the Palm BeachesThe thing that really stands out for me the most with respect to networking is respect. Some of the groups I socialize in are very red politically and in contrast to that I have friends that are on the extreme other end of that political spectrum and are very liberal and democratic, and so it takes a certain amount of respect to make sure you treat everybody fairly and honestly and friendly. And I think that for me is why I do well in these social circles. I dont really go to a lot of quote unquote networking events, to tell you the truth. I do go to things I care about. I go to Realtor events because thats my business and I enjoy that. But I dont go to networking events that I dont enjoy. If somethings going to be too extreme one way or another or confrontational, I think thats a waste of time. Thats the other part of networking is your credibility and if youre seen as unswaying and not willing to compromise and at least allow for discussions, you wont be invited to a lot of different types of networking events. There are so many networking events and what they really are is social events. Even though they may be business oriented, it all revolves around how you socialize with other people and how youre willing to put yourself out there and be friendly to everybody and be respectful. Networking is not hard work to me. Its every single day putting your best foot forward.

New tool measures states progress using 21 metricsFloridas Regional Planning Councils received a new suite of economic development tools recently, as the Florida Regional Councils Association launched a new website on regional metrics. Each of Floridas 11 regional planning councils will now be able to compare statistics ranging from high school graduation rates and trade imports to employment by industry and relative housing prices. This new website enables Floridas Regional Planning Councils as federally designated Economic Development Districts to see our Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies in action, said Brian Teeple, chair of the Florida Regional Councils Association Executive Directors Advisory Committee. Its our responsibility to be good stewards of economic growth across Florida and by partnering with the Florida Chamber Foundation and aligning our metrics to the Six Pillars were able to show where we are making progress in each region and where we need to close gaps. Regional Planning Councils and their state, regional and local partners are now able to view measurable results in 21 separate metrics that align to the Six Pillars framework developed by the Florida Chamber Foundations Six Pillars Plan. The original plan was developed in 2010 to secure Floridas future into the year 2030 and beyond. The aggregate data allows regional and statewide comparisons. Each regional planning council became an official Six Pillars Community last year and began developing their future strategies to strengthen economic opportunities. Our partnership with the Florida Regional Councils Association is pivotal to our mission of statewide solutions, said Tony Carvajal, executive vice president with the Florida Chamber Foundation. The ability of each Regional Planning Council to evaluate their trends and data within their own region will help serve their own strategic planning efforts moving forward. We are excited that we can continue to secure Floridas future alongside this important group. To view the website and data, visit http://floridarpcscorecard.com. The Florida Chamber Foundation is the business-led, solutions development and research organization working in partnership with state business leaders to secure Floridas future. The Foundations Six Pillars serve as a visioning platform for developing the first-ever, long-term strategic plan for the state. The foundations work focuses on: 1) Talent Supply and Education, 2) Innovation and Economic Development, 3) Infrastructure and Growth Leadership, 4) Business Climate and Competitiveness, 5) Civic and Governance Systems, and 6) Quality of Life and Quality Places. Founded in 1968, the foundation is a voice for improving the states pro-business climate to enable Florida to grow and prosper. For more information, visit www.FloridaChamber.com.

Steve and Debbi Grimaldi purchased their home in The Strado two years before completion and live there with their dog, Shadow. They chose a two-bedroom plan and designed the second bedroom as an office. Weve been here for more than four years now, and I have to say, its all as promised and more, Mr. Grimaldi says. We ride our bikes even more than we expected, and we still take a picnic dinner down to the beach at least once a month for sunset. Each residence at The Strada includes secured parking, private rooftop club with a clubhouse, fitness center, 52-foot heated pool with waterfall, spa, gas grills, fire pit and resort lounge seating. The Strada at Mercatos strong sales have been complemented by the ongoing success of Mercatos retail division, with new tenants such as Pr etty Women, a clothing and accessories shop owned by Michael and Beckie Lapidus.

Simply Busty. Or, on a slightly more formal level, Busty the Bartender. Hes been there since the place opened its doors in 1993, but Busty will soon wrap up a very long run, probably the theaters most enduring hit show ever. Bustys last shift behind the bar is April 11, the day he turns 71. Its time, Busty said recently, sitting down for a few minutes before another night behind the lobby bar. He does have a real name Sebastian Lanza. But to patrons and co-workers and actors hes simply Busty, his nickname since infancy. Always has been and remains so. Only Broadway Palm owner Will Prather, who hired him in 1993, addresses him as Sebastian. Busty, despite rave reviews, doesnt get up on stage and sing or dance or act. People say to me do you want to get up on stage and do anything and I say this is my stage, Busty said. My stage is behind that bar and just getting to know people. Actors need to know their lines, and bartenders, Busty said, need to know their customers names and drinks. THE WOMEN SIT IN A CIRCLE, CLAPPING rhythmically to the flamenco music in a style called palming. It starts soft, like a light spring rain, then builds to a ferocious downpour. Then suddenly, in unison and without warning, they all stop and, pleased with themselves, laugh with delight at their mastery. The clapping starts again, and this time, one by one, the women of various ages, races, ethnicities, body types and sizes go to the middle of the circle and dance, doing whatever steps and movements compel them. Theres clapping, finger snapping and foot stomping, swirling hands and twirling skirts. And plenty of attitude, passion and fire.Longtime Broadway Palm Theatre bartender busts into retirement Powerful, liberating dance form is at the heart of Heart SongBY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYAbove: Michelle Damato dances flamenco for castmates Beth Haely, Kathleen Moye, Jonita Martin, Stephanie Davis, Patricia Idlette, Jo Yang, Cindy-Lee Overton and instructor Carolina Esparza during rehearsal for Heart Song at Florida Repertory Theatre.SEE FLAMENCO, C4 BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly Correspondent BUSTY SEE BUSTY, C18 Alive in the WorldJazz vocalist Kevin Mahogany headlines annual concert.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSThis is what aggressively flirtatious looks likeI recently met up with an old friend who was passing through town. Hes older than I am and some might say wiser. Hes also French, which comes with its own set of rewards. Over coffee, this friend and I compared notes on the people we know in common, and through the course of our conversation we discovered that we both had run into the same young woman, Claire, in different circumstances. I met her three years ago during a stint overseas; my friend was introduced to her just last year in another location. We laughed and shook our heads at the smallness of our world. You know what else is funny? I said. It turns out I was good friends with Claires boyfriend. Before they were dating. My friend looked unsurprised. Oh, yes, I know, he said. You know? But how? He took a sip of his coffee and gave me an appraising look. She said you had been aggressively flirting with her boyfriend. I sat back, stunned. Aggressively flirting? We had been friends, thats all. And mostly before I knew they were dating. Still, I could feel the color drain from my face. In the coffee shop, my friend shrugged his shoulders in a very European way as if to dismiss the entire matter. After all, hes from France, where flirting aggressively or otherwise is a national pastime. But the accusation stayed with me, not just that night but in the days that followed. To tell you the truth, Im still thinking about it. People say its impossible to be friends with the opposite sex, that if closeness grows between a man and a woman its because there must be some underlying sexual tension. Personally, Im a platonic friends apologist. Why shouldnt men and women appreciate each other and still have no intention of sleeping together? But then I read the relationship advice book Women Men Love, W omen Men Leave (no romp in the park, that one) and was startled to learn that one of the basic requirements for a solid relationship is that both partners give up their friendships with the opposite sex. It seemed like everyone was against me. Reluctantly, I started to reexamine my situation. What if what I considered friendliness was interpreted as flirtation? Could my spirited niceness be seen as flagrant invitation? And then, some time later, in a particularly lucid moment, I recognized my circumstances for what they really were: Of course I had been flirting. I wanted that friend to like me, not just casually but as someone he might consider dating. My niceness was an excuse. Or, more accurately, my own way of flirting. Flooded with this insight, I thought of all my seemingly platonic male friends, men who for one reason or another I have not dated. Were we really friends, in the truest sense of the word? Or were we just orbiting each other, waiting for the moment when our friendship might slip into something more? For a moment, I had the terrible idea that all this time I had been fooling them about my intentions. But then I realized, of course, that they had been fooling me.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 The rapid-fire staccato of stamping shoes sounds like machine-gun fire. Its exhilarating, says Patricia Idlette. It is intoxicating. When we are clapping and chanting and stomping, its like a trance. Its liberating, powerful, very sexy, says Stephanie Davis. Youre doing sexy stuff with your arms, your upper body, and empowering stuff with your lower body. The women are actors preparing for Florida Repertory Theatres next play, Heart Song. It tells the story of Rochelle (Carrie Lund), whos mourning the loss of her mother and feeling disconnected from everything. Rochelles massage therapist Tina, played by Jo Yang, invites her to join the flamenco class shes taking. (Ms. Yang, a New York-based actress, has appeared in movies such as The Squid and the Whale, August Rush, The Namesake and the remake of Alfie.) Playwright Stephen Sachs sits against the wall of the Fort Myers 1st Danz dance studio with director Robert Cacioppo, sipping coffee and watching the women. Mr. Sachs is in town for a week to sit in on rehearsals and tweak his play, which is still a work in progress. He then flies to London, where his Bakersfield Mist opens on the West End in May with Kathleen Turner and Ian McDiarmid. (Its a two-character comedy-drama about a wacky woman who buys a painting for $3 and is convinced that its a Jackson Pollack masterpiece, he explains.) The playwright will return to Fort Myers for the opening of Heart Song at Florida Rep on April 25. Mr. Sachs is co-founder and co-artistic director of the Fountain Theatre in Los Angeles, which, in addition to staging plays, has been the foremost presenter of flamenco in Los Angeles, he says. For a long time hes wanted to write a play that features flamenco and drama. I tried to think: Who would be the least likely person to dance flamenco? he says. He ultimately based the character of Rochelle on his mother-in-law from Bayside, Queens. I knew if she could dance flamenco, anybody could, he says. Heart Song is about a woman finding her voice with help from the power of flamenco. At the start of the play, Rochelle is voiceless. Shes disconnected from her community, from her Jewish tribe, from her faith, Mr. Sachs says. Through her journey, through the most unexpected way possible, through her friendship with these women (in the flamenco class), she discovers community and feels connected to a tribe again. Its a mother-daughter play, he says, about a woman coming to terms with the barrenness of her own life. Rochelles mother died a year ago, and in keeping with the Jewish tradition, the one-year anniversary is time for the unveiling of the gravestone. Mr. Sachs own loss triggered the play. Im the only surviving person in my family, he says. My mother, father and sister have passed. I identify with the ache that she carries. You start to think about your own mortality too. You think, I can be next. Doing flamenco releases all this feeling. It can be extremely cathartic and therapeutic for people. People take classes for all different reasons, sometimes the least of which is the dancing. 1st Danz owner Cindy-Lee Overton, who choreographed the show, agrees. Very rarely do people come to a dance studio to be a dancer, she says. There are many other reasons: I lost somebody. Im sick of sitting at home and watching TV. I want to connect with my significant other. I love the play. (Stephen) has an understanding of how dance moves peoples lives. Instructor/choreographer Carolina Esparza has come to Fort Myers from St. Petersburg to serve as the flamenco consultant for Heart Song. Some of the plays characters remind her of her real-life students. She offers as example the story of a student who told her the music and movement of flamenco made her feel wonderful, despite a cancer diagnosis. For the dancers in Heart Song, flamenco is their therapy, she says. Between the music and the movement, they are healing some life wounds.Following her destinyMs. Esparza grew up with flamenco. Her mother was from Seville, Spain, and instead of enrolling her daughter in tap or ballet lessons, she signed her up for a class in Spanish flamenco. It was part of my destiny, she says about what ultimately became her lifes career. It sort of happened to me. I respected and fell in love with the art form so much that without realizing it, it ended up being my answer. Flamenco is a dance that came from people who suffered: a mixture of nomads from India, Moors, Jews and Spaniards 300 years ago in Southern Spain, Ms. Esparza explains. It started with a beautiful and haunting song called Cante Jondo, she says. It captures whats called the duende of flamenco that soulful moaning and wailing throughout the dance. No matter whether its happy or sad, suffering or joy, she adds, You can learn all the steps and moves, but without that duende its not flamenco. She leads the actresses through the steps, slowly at fir st. With their arms moving gracefully in slow motion, it almost looks like a Spanish version of tai chi. Then she takes them through a 12-count, having them rapidly and repeatedly strike the floor with the toes and heels of their shoes, which have nails in them. Toe-heel: It should sound like a galloping horse, she tells them. Later she cautions, Flamenco isnt about loud, its about rhythm. The women dance with passion. Ms. Esparzas arms twist and turn sensuously in the air. Feel it, just feel it! she calls out. Thats whats new about flamenco, the element of surprise.Relating to the charactersMs. Lund is grappling with her characters personal temperment more than with the flamenco steps. Its a long, fun stretch for me, she says about playing Rochelle. I have a happy disposition, but this character is in a desperate way. I try to imagine this sour, dour disposition hell-bent on just doing away with myself. This is different than other roles Ive had. I want to have a genuine understanding of this character. Mr. Cacioppo, the director, related to the play instantly when he read it a year and a half ago. His father had died a year or so before. (So when I read the play) I was close to dealing with the death of a parent, reflecting on the relationship, he says. He appreciated the fact that Heart Song had a great deal of humor in it and was about regular working-class people, which my audiences relate to. And I love stories where (the character) can be in a crisis, and you see their journey, how they get out of it. This is the story of a woman in crisis, and a series of things, such as taking this class, help her get through it. Staging Heart Song is part of Florida Reps commitment to presenting a world premiere or a new play every year, Mr. Cacioppo says. Our audiences will see something and experience something no one else has experienced yet, he says, noting that the play has only been previously performed at the 80-seat Fountain Theatre where Mr. Sachs is based. We also get to help the author shape the work, he says with excitement. I dont know what its going to be. Its not the process of doing something thats been done 32 times at other theaters. (Were creating) something that never existed before.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 C5 Jazz vocalist Kevin Mahogany headlines Alive in the WorldAcclaimed vocalist Kevin Mahogany will headline the 2014 Alive in the World concert benefiting The Foundation for The Developmentally Disabled. Presented by the Trust for the Advancement of Responsible Artists, the concert and auction take place Thursday evening, May 8, at Artis Naples. Only 200 tickets will be sold for the performance in the intimate Daniels Pavilion. With his gift for bebop, ballads, blues and swing, Mr. Mahogany bloomed early as a performer. As a 12-year-old in 1970, he was playing the baritone sax and working professionally with Eddie Bakers New Breed Orchestra. By his senior high school year, he discovered he was a singer. At Baker University, he formed his own vocal jazz choir. After graduating, he returned to his roots in Kansas City and its music scene. His debut album, Double Rainbow, was released in 1993. Since then, he has released albums on Enja, Warner Brothers, Telarc and finally on his own label, Mahogany Jazz. Mr. Mahogany has been an in-demand sideman and guest artist with a select cadre of jazz stars. Hes recorded with T.S. Monk, The Ray Brown Trio, Marlena Shaw, Roseanna Vitro, Carl Allen, Barbara Morrison and Elvin Jones. He also teaches at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and the University of Miami. Naples attorney Bob Goldman, the director and founder of the Trust for the Advancement of Responsible Artists, calls Mr. Mahogany the standout jazz vocalist of his generation and promises that his dynamic and down-home artistry will make for an amazing show. TARA was founded as a result of Mr. Goldmans interest in autism and other developmental disabilities. The Foundation for the Developmentally Disabled is committed to ensuring that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the support they need to be full members of the community. The foundations efforts encompass all ages and all spectrums from autism to Down syndrome, Fragile X, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and various other developmental disabilities. Just supporting the cause is reason enough to come to this event, Mr. Goldman says about the annual Alive in the World concert. But, people also get a great performance by artists they might otherwise never get to see. Previous headliners include Arnold McCuller, Ben Taylor, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Rodney Crowell, Brandi Carlile and Phoebe Snow. For his May 8 appearance in Naples, Mr. Mahogany will be accompanied by his own five-piece band. The Community School of Naples all-star jazz band will open the show. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 919-0408 or visit www.gigforgood. org/tickets.

Medically Approved.To nd out more info visit us at www.naples.concept1010.comGood-Bye Back Pain! 2 LOCATIONS: North Naples: 431-7143 Naples Last I Heard: life on the outsideRetirement can be a rough transition. Some embrace it and seem to thrive, while others feel lost, not sure how to deal with this new phase in their life. In Last I Heard, playing at the Fort Myers Beach Film Festival at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26, Joseph Scoleri (played by Paul Sorvino) is struggling with an enforced retirement. Hes a Mafia captain who just spent 20 years and 6 months in jail. When we first meet him, hes walking out of a Pennsylv ania prison, a heavyset senior citizen in a nondescript beige windbreaker and light khaki pants. He looks a little lost, bewildered, more like someones harmless grandfather than a dangerous capo who was once feared and respected. Written and directed by David Rodriguez, the film doesnt play it for laughs but takes its subject matter seriously. Mr. Scoleri known in his Queens, N.Y., neighborhood as Mr. Joe has a bad heart and has been sent home to die. But he cant figure out how to live in the meantime. Legally prevented from seeing any of his old associates, he lives with his 43-year-old daughter (Renee Props), seeing his probation officer weekly and going to doctor appointments. Things have changed, he says. What have I got left? Who am I going to socialize with? Youre not the same man you were 20 years ago, his lawyer, played by Chazz Palminteri, warns him. The life you knew and loved is gone forever. Mr. Joe doesnt seem to know how to function in todays world. Hes amazed to discover an entire TV channel devoted to cooking. He doesnt know how to operate a CD player, though someone in the joint has turned him on to the Buena Vista Social Club. Hes dismayed that Shea Stadium has been torn down. He tries to connect with his daughter, but he has missed almost half her life. In some ways, Last I Heard, with its emphasis on relationships, is almost like a Hallmark movie if Hallmark movies included choice four-letter words thrown around like loose change. Mr. Joes neighbor, Bobby (Michael Rapaport), the owner of a local gourmet deli, tries to befriend the ex-con, driving him around for groceries and doctor visits, but grows a little nervous when the FBI pays a visit and then starts trailing him. The movie has played at the Austin Film Festival, the Seattle International Film Festival and the HollyShorts Film Festival in Los Angeles (even though its a full-length feature). Mr. Rodriguez, the director, has said that his favorite movie is The Godfather: Part II and his biggest directorial influences are Martin Scorsese and Steven Soderbergh. (No wonder hes made an indie movie about an aging mobster.) Last I Heard is a unique take on the aging process. What do you do when you feel youve outlived your usefulness, when the world has changed and you no longer feel vibrant or needed?Festival highlightsThe Fort Myers Beach Film Festival begins with a sunset cruise departing from Fish Tale Marina at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 22. A free family film, Teen Beach Movie, will be screened at sunset Friday, April 23, at the Outrigger Beach Resort. For those who want to learn more about filmmaking, the festival presents Self Propelled: An Inside Look at Low Budget Filmmaking, a workshop and luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Friday, April 23, at the Beach Theater. Tickets are $30. And at noon on Saturday, April 26, a panel discussion with film industry professionals will be held at the theater. Tickets are $40. The festival concludes with an award ceremony at 5 p.m. Sunday, April 27, also at the Beach Theater. Some film festival offeringsThe Fort Myers Beach Film Festival offers a variety of indie films and shorts. Heres a look at some that seem interesting, with descriptions provided by FMBFF. A Short History of Decay 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 23, and 9 p.m. Saturday, April 26 A comedy from an original script by Michael Maren, its about a failed Brooklyn writer, Nathan Fisher (played by Bryan Greenberg), who visits his ailing parents in Florida. His mother (Linda Lavin) has Alzheimers and his father (Harris Yulin) has recently had a stroke. Hollywood and Beyond 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26 Johnny Martino is having a race with time. In the 1960s, he rode the rock n roll wave with a hit song on Dick Clarks Bandstand. In Hollywood not long after, he was cast as Paulie in The Godfather. Johnnys race to movie stardom proved to be even more spectacular than his instant fame as a singer. Today, Johnny is racing toward a new goal. He has been to Hollywood. Now he is ready to go beyond. Music City USA 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 23 Nashville wasnt always called Music City. Find out how this printing and insurance mecca became the music capital of the world and see how, when the devastating flood of 2010 tried to get them down, the city was reborn thanks to a thriving music community. Pink Gold Rush 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 23 They discovered it by accident in the dark of night, and by the time the full moon shone, the Pink Gold Rush was on. Florida shrimpers first found the nocturnal pink shrimp in 1949, bringing a frenzy of fishermen with trawlers and nets to Fort Myers Beach, ready to pan the sweet, delicious pink gold. Hundreds of boats once offloaded at the local shrimp docks. Today, fewer than 40 come to port. Through seven decades, shrimpers have struggled against adversity. How much longer can they survive? This documentary was produced by WGCU. The Beach Chronicles 9 p.m. Friday, April 25 Set in a style reminiscent of the hard-boiled movies of the 1950s, this short film follows Dirk Jenson, a South Beach private detective jaded by a life veiled in duplicity and steeped in death and murder. Hes a cog in the machinery moved by the inner workings of death, billionaires, sheiks, barons, whores, fast cars, slow rides and lots and lots of money. The cast includes William Shatner and Daryl Hannah. Tough Aint Tough Enough: Conversations with Albert S. Ruddy 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26 Twotime Academy Award-winning producer/ writer Albert S. Ruddy candidly reveals how he fought against all odds to produce some of the most iconic motion pictures and television shows of all time (The Godfather, Million Dollar Baby, The Longest Yard, Cannonball Run I and II, Walker Texas Ranger and Hogans Heroes, among them).

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 1080 5th Avenue South (one block west of Goodlette-Frank Road)ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Youre doing better on the flexibility issue, but you still need to loosen up a bit to show you can be less judgmental and more understanding about certain sensitive matters. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your personal aspect continues to dominate this week. But try to make time to deal with important career-linked matters as well. A change of plans might occur by the weekend. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Excuses are not really needed for much of the confusion occurring this week. However, explanations from all parties could help in working things out to everyones satisfaction. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That surprising (but pleasant) recent turn of events continues to develop positive aspects. But be prepared for a bit of a jolt on another issue that needs attention. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Creating a fuss might bring you that attention you want. But are you prepared for all the explaining youd have to do? Better to use more subtle ways to make your bid. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) With education continuing to be a strong factor this week, this could be the time to start learning some new skills that can later be applied to a bid for a potential career move. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might do well to reconsider some of your current time priorities before you get so deeply involved in one project that you neglect meeting a deadline on another. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) With an important decision looming, you need to be careful about the information youre getting. Half-truths are essentially useless. Get the full story before you act. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Find out what everyones role is expected to be before accepting that workplace proposal. Getting all the facts now could prevent serious problems later on. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A flexible position on a workplace matter could be the best course to follow during the next several days. A personal issue also benefits from an open-minded approach. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Involving too many people in your workplace problem can backfire. Remember: Allegiances can shift. Ask trusted colleagues for advice, but dont ask them to take sides. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Before submitting your suggestions, take more time to sharpen the points you want to make. The clearer the presentation, the more chance it has to get through when submitted. BORN THIS WEEK: Your clear sense of who you are gives you confidence when you need to tackle difficult situations.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 C11 Is it worth $10? yesClearly darker in tone and more dramatically ambitious than any film thus far from Marvel Studios, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a resounding success. The action scenes register with the power of a Hulk smash (no, he doesnt cameo), and the story is surprisingly tense as it tackles thoughtprovoking questions in the midst of dynamic popcorn entertainment. Taking its cue from The Dark Knight (2008) in terms of pulse-pounding action (note the truck that flips over its front end), music thats tense and brooding and a narrative that prompts its protagonist to question his motivations, The Winter Soldier keeps the Marvel Cinematic Universes (which includes the Hulk, Thor and Iron Man) winning streak zestfully alive. Living in Washington D.C., Steve Rogers, aka Captain America (Chris Evans), continues to fight for S.H.I.E.L.D. and its leader, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Rogers is disheartened, though, by the construction of three heli-carriers, which Fury is completing in cooperation with Secretary of Defense Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford). Fury maintains that with the heli-carriers, potential attacks can be neutralized before they happen, while Rogers is understandably concerned that perceived threats could be erroneous and innocents could be hurt. Hes so concerned, in fact, that he considers quitting altogether. This is the military-industrial complex and foreign diplomacy impacting a superhero tale, which is an unexpected moral/ethical dilemma for a movie in which zero depth is expected.Once S.H.I.E.L.D. is compromised, Rogers is forced to work with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), to try to save the world. Later, Rogers friend Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) dons some wings to become the Falcon, which Marvel Comics readers will appreciate. The opposition is whoever sabotaged S.H.I.E.L.D. and a Russian assassin named The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).After Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) and The Avengers (2012), this is the third time the good captain has played a prominent role in a feature, so it would not be a surprise if things went a bit stale. This is where directors Joe and Anthony Russo and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely really shine: Though we never truly doubt that Steve will keep fighting, the circumstances that lead to his consternation allow The Winter Soldier to work well in terms of both dramatic tension and action/entertainment something that doesnt always happen in big-budget, effects-driven superhero movies (ahem, Man of Steel). Speaking of the action, its fantastic. Among the highlights are Fury in a tense car chase, Captain America taking down a plane with his shield, multiple fights and escapes from The Winter Soldier and a high-impact, high-flying finale. No new ground is broken here, but credit is deserved for a job very well done. Captain America: The Winter Soldier does what it needs to do: It improves in every way on its 2011 predecessor, and more importantly, it keeps the Marvel Cinematic Universe in fine form, which has the byproduct of keeping audiences eagerly awaiting its next project (see below). Dan Hudak is a nationally syndicated, Miami-based film critic whose work has appeared extensively in print, radio and television. Read more of his work at www.hudakonhollywood.com. LATEST FILMSCaptain America: The Winter Soldier a p s S t W b danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com CAPSULESNoah (Russell Crowe, J ennifer Connelly, Emma Watson) Noah (Mr. Crowe) faces grave moral dilemmas after God chooses him to build an ark to save animals when a forthcoming flood wipes out mankind. The visual effects are impressive, and Mr. Crowe gives the movie all he can. Too bad theres so much going on, and so many gaps in logic, that it just doesnt hold together very well. Rated PG-13.The Grand Budapest Hotel (Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, Owen Wilson) In a fictional European country circa 1932, hotel concierge M. Gustave (Mr. Fiennes) takes the new lobby boy (Mr. Revolori) on a series of adventures. It has the cotton candy visuals and innocence weve come to expect from writer/director Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom), even when the main characters are being naughty. Rated R.The Lunchbox 1/2(Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui) In Mumbai, a mistake in the lunchbox delivery service leads to an exchange of letters between a lonely widower (Mr. Khan) and a forlorn housewife (Ms. Kaur). Its from Bollywood, but its not a musical as one may expect. Rather, its the type of calm, thoughtful drama thats appropriately heartwarming and sweet, emboldened by a simplicity not often found in modern movies. Rated PG. >> The futuristic and seemingly unrelated Guardians of the Galaxy bows Aug. 1, followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015. On another note, be sure to stay through the credits of The Winter Soldier. There are two scenes one shortly after the credits begin and another at the end you dont want to miss (the rst one is a mustsee, while the latter is simply cute).

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 FLORIDA WRITERSA Cold War backstory energizes the debut of a relentless sleuthThe Second Letter by Robert Lane. Mason Alley Publishing. 330 pages. Trade paperback $14.95.This is hefty, solid, tough-guy mystery writing. A character named Jake Travis is screaming for comparison with Ernest Hemingways world-weary Jake Barnes, Paul Levines Jake Lassiter and, of course, John D. McDonalds iconoclastic protagonist Travis McGee. Robert Lanes invention holds up well while carrying its own distinctiveness, blending a noir outlook with posh settings. Too smart and too mouthy for his own good, Jake Travis lives in a moral twilight that threatens to plunge him into total darkness. A retired Special Forces operative, he performs contract work for his former boss and has as his partner on such missions a man named Garrett. Jake and Garrett are tasked with working out the terms of a possibly compromising letter being turned over to the U.S. government. The man who has the letter, Raydel Escobar, would like to exchange it for his IRS debt of $7 million. Mr. Escobar lives an elegant life from the proceeds of his (largely stolen) carpet and rug business and the three gentlemans clubs (better known as skin clubs) he runs in Tampa. He has a gorgeous wife, a lovely home and a position in the food chain of illegal enterprises that puts him under associates far more powerful and ruthlessly lethal than he is. The author has structured the novel to rock back and forth between Jakes perspective and Mr. Escobars, a device that is highly serviceable in raising suspense and deepening reader interest. The letter, going back to 1961, is thought to be connected to the Bay of Pigs fiasco. It had been in the possession of Dorothy Harrison, who lived on Long Key off St. Petersburg. A friend and colleague of her late husband delivered it to her several months after Jim Harrisons death in a CIA plane crash. Dorothy chose not to read it, instead asking her Cuban gardener to hide it. After her own death decades later, her home became a museum. And now Mr. Escobar has somehow come across the letter, and the government wants it. Why is it so valuable? Well, lets just say its from CIA philJASONpkjason@comcast.net LANE31. CALLand pick up2.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 C13 Director Allen Dulles to Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. And its not the only letter in the envelope. As Jake, Garrett and Jakes neighbor Morgan scout out the Escobar estate and plan to make their m ove, readers get to enjoy the authors masterful handling of the Southwest Florida setting. They also get to f eed their gluttony for descriptions of weaponry, elite boats and special covert operations. Well, covert up to point. In these various areas of thriller interest, Randy Wayne White now has a rival. Theres got to be a girlfriend, right? This is genre fiction, after all. Jakes Kathleen, who sports a new identity to protect her from past doings, is as alluring and complicated and sensitive and smart as they get. Mr. Lane builds powerful interest in this relationship, turning its chances for success into a second element of suspense. Of course, the issues come together. Why would Jake want to put someone he loves and who loves him through the tortures of his dangerous assignments? The main plot progresses in devilish and disgusting ways. Mr. Escobar is maneuvered into participating in the trafficking of young girls to be sex slaves at worst, the lucky ones just plain slaves. Yet in this dilemma, Mr. Escobar proves his humanity and gains some sympathy. He has been cornered by his overlords and his conscience, as well as by Jakes crew. The Second Letter contains splendidly described mayhem as well as highly pressured plan refinement and improvisation for Jake and company. Jake is having trouble accepting the callousness hes had to develop to pursue assignments like this. Its like a shadow on his soul, and thus a problem for his relationship with Kathleen. The author, who splits his time between St. Pete Beach and Dublin, Ohio, has created a winning hero in Jake Travis, someone who is superskilled, superfit, glib, oddly bookish, funny as a stiletto and with a somewhat banged up moral compass. Mr. Lanes second novel, Cooler Than Blood, will be out in the fall.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 Naples filmmaker set to introduce Wings at Sarasota Film Festival SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNaples resident and third-generation filmmaker K.C. Schulberg will introduce a screening of the landmark film Wings, which was produced by his grandfather in 1927 and became the first film to win the Academy Award, as part of the Sarasota Film Festival at noon Saturday, April 12, at the Sarasota Opera House. Joining Mr. Schulberg to introduce the film will be Patrick Harrison of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Mr. Schulberg is in preparations for his own film, A Dream Last Night, to be shot in and around Naples this fall. B.P. Schulbergs Wings was not only the first film to win the Academy Award, it was the only silent film to achieve that distinction. Directed William Wellman, it starred Paramount darling Clara Bow, Charles Buddy Rogers, Richard Arlen and newcomer Gary Cooper, whose career the elder Mr. Schulberg was credited with launching. The film was made for $2 million and featured aerial acrobatics by the storys World War I pilots that rank to this day among the best ever filmed. Though released in 1927, it did not receive the Academy Award until 1929; the statuette, not yet known as the Oscar, was presented by Douglas Fairbanks to Ms. Bow on behalf of the producers, Lucien Hubbard, Adolph Zukor and Mr. Schulberg (who served as head of Paramount from 1927-35). The 2014 Sarasota Film Festival has partnered with several organizations including The Patterson Foundation, Legacy of Valor campaign and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to honor and celebrate the experiences of American soldiers/veterans through a wide range of films and shorts. The festival screening of Wings is courtesy of Paramount Pictures in partnership with the Academy Film Archive. I am honored to introduce this film, which occupies a unique place not only in my familys history but in the history of American cinema, the younger Mr. Schulberg says. His introduction to the screening will include a few amusing anecdotes passed down from his grandfather, his uncle and his father about the challenging production process of making the movie, he adds. Those working on A Dream Last Night with Mr. Schulberg include director Pierre Filmon and cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, who won the Oscar for Steven Spielbergs Close Encounters of the Third Kind and whose body of work also includes The Deerhunter, Deliverance and The Black Dahlia, among many others. Two-time Grammy nominated Universal recording artist Jacky Terrasson will both act in the film and provide the score. Academy Awardand Golden Globenominated actor Eric Roberts is already attached. Additional casting will be announced shortly. The screenplay for A Dream Last Night is based on a 1953 short story by Budd Schulberg, Mr. Schulbergs aforementioned uncle. The film returns to many of the same locales as his father Stuart Schulbergs 1958 film, Wind Across the Everglades. His daughter, Chloe Schulberg, joins the Dream team as production coordinator. The Sarasota Film Festival continues through Sunday, April 13. For information about screenings and special programming, visit www. sarasotafilmfestival.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 Around the barArt Littlestone, 75, has been a Broadway Palm regular for many years, finding a spot at the bar for different drinks on different nights. Mr. Littlestone never orders drinks. Busty knows what the man he calls Artie wants. He sees me walk in and the drink is right there, Mr Littlestone said. On Wednesdays he has a gin martini. I dont order a gin martini anywhere else, Mr. Littlestone said. On Fridays he drinks what he termed special bourbon, something Busty told him about. Its called Rare Breed bourbon and it is, Mr. Littlestone said, 108.2 proof. This bar is a special place for Mr. Littlestone. This is Cheers for me, Mr. Littlestone said, referring to a popular sitcom set in a bar. Im Norm. Hes Sam. Mr. Littlestone, a widower, said he and his late wife, Barbara, who had been married for 46 years, were regular theatergoers, taking in 25 or 26 shows a year at various theaters. Now, Mr. Littlestone doesnt attend the shows but he still pops into the Broadway Palm lobby two nights a week, walks up to the bar and has the right drink waiting for him on the right night. All served by a great bartender. What makes you think hes a great bartender? Mr. Littlestone said in jest and loud enough to make sure Busty heard his good-natured comment. Also at the bar this evening as the theater began to fill for Les Miserables were Mary Lou Juergens and Bob Kliphon, who have been coming to the bar for eight years. Hes a loyal friend, Ms. Juergens said. And a bartender with a sense about his customers. He always knows your mood, Mr. Littlestone said.From the beginningBusty recalls the first night and the first show ever at the Broadway Palm, Me and My Gal. As he prepared for his first customers, Busty had to go back in the service area to get something and noticed workers busy painting the walls. When the curtain rose on the first show, of the first season, the paint was still wet. Busty started bartending in his native New Jersey in the late 1960s. He worked various types of places there and he and his wife, Sunday, once owned and operated a fast-food restaurant. Nothing, though, has equaled the Broad-BUSTYFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOSBusty through the years as bartender at the Broadway Palm Theatre.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 C19 way Palm. This has been the best gig for me in my whole life, Busty said. Mr. Prather didnt think it would work out that way for Busty. When he first interviewed for the job more than 20 years ago, Mr. Prather told him he doubted whether the lobby bar would generate enough income to make it worth Bustys efforts. Busty asked Mr. Prather how many patrons he expected to put in the theater every night. He was told about 400. That sounded good to Busty and he told Mr. Prather that. Ill show you that this bar will do money, Busty told Mr. Prather. It did. The Broadway Palm has thrived through more than 20 years, during a time when many dinner theaters closed their doors for good and through a severe recession and through an explosion in entertainment options from DVDs to the Internet and the streaming of movies. These people really know what theyre doing, Busty said of Broadway Palm management. First of all, they have it down to a science, from the box office to the gift shop to the bar and the kitchen and performances. Busty helped make the theater succeed. One of the keys to bartending, he said, is knowing customers, remembering their names and drinks. He advises younger bartenders to learn names and drinks. He talked about a couple from New Hampshire named Peggy and Dick who come once a year to the Broadway Palm. Busty said he made sure to recall their names so when they pop in for their annual trip he greets them. Peggy! Dick!, he said he tells them. How you doing? Thats part of customer service for Busty. People love to be acknowledged, Busty said. Busty will soon get some acknowledgement of his own. Mr. Prather plans a going away open-house party at the theater for Busty from 2-6 p.m. Sunday, April 13. Palm Sunday, appropriately enough. The public is invited.Matters of trustMr. Prather and Busty go back a long way. They met, Mr. Prather said, when Busty worked at a place called the Toucan on West First Street in Fort Myers. Mr. Prather said he was only 24 at the time he hired Busty, who was the fourth or fifth employee and the first bartender he hired. What is now the Broadway Palm was a Publix and had to be converted into a theater. Mr. Prather said he trusts Busty with everything at the place. Busty closes the theater at night and makes sure the doors are locked and the security system is operating before he goes home. Ive always had a sense of security, Mr. Prather said. Busty became more than an employee. He took ownership in everything, Mr. Prather said. He also, Mr. Prather said, has a commanding presence behind the bar and is a handsome man. More than that, he became a mentor of sorts to younger workers. He really became a surrogate uncle to a lot of our employees and actors, Mr. Prather said. Thats all now coming to an end. Its been a great run, Busty said. Im ready to go and of course Im saddened and will miss everybody but Im going to be around. Im going to come to the shows. The next show at the Broadway Palm will be The Music Man. Look for the Busty the bartending man in the audience, but dont look behind the bar, his home for 21 years. Those days are over. Maybe somebody will buy him a drink. Im a scotch guy, Busty said. Little rocks. Little splash of water.

Accompanied by their beloved pointer, Judy, they departed New York City that July. Harpers Weekly traced its beginnings to John and James Harper, who established their first printing press in New York in 1817. Sixteen years later, two more siblings, Wesley and Fletcher, joined the company, and it became Harper and Brothers. The first issue of Harpers Weekly rolled off the presses in 1857. It offered its readers 16 folio pages filled with news of America and the world, all for 5 cents a copy. The newspaper became especially essential during the Civil War, as it set the standard for illustrated journalism in the United States. Chronicling the West for Harpers showcases 100 illustrations that Mr. Frenzeny and Mr. Tavernier made for the magazine during their cross-country assignment over a two-year period, 1873 and 1874. For readers around the world, these drawings brought to life the newly accessible territories, their diverse inhabitants and the turbulent, changing frontier. Author Claudine Chalmers, an independent historian, focuses on the life and work of these two remarkable men as they visited such places as Pittsburgh, Missouri, Texas, the Neosho Valley in Kansas, Fort Gibson in present-day Oklahoma, Colorado, Nebraska, Arizona and Utah, eventually ending their journey in San Francisco during the summer of 1874. The illustrations are extraordinary, from branding cattle in Texas to quarrying stone for the new Mormon Temple in Utah, and from Chinatown in San Francisco to encountering a prairie windstorm in Kansas. With pencil and woodblock, Mr. Frenzeny and Mr. Tavernier redefined American journalism and captured the American frontier as never before. s n s e Au th O k t i n su NAPLES ARTCRAFTERS Fine Art & CraftsSaturday, April 12th10am 4pmIN CAMBIER PARK, DOWNTOWN NAPLES580 8th Street SouthJUST SOUTH OF 5TH AVENUE www.naplesartcrafters.com 239.262.8111 esh, Fast DELIVERY PIZZAFUSION.COMTWITTER.COM/PIZZAFUSION FACEBOOK.COM/PIZZAFUSION WE COME IN THE NAME OF PIZZA.But not just any pizza.

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Wines growing popularity leads to rise in helixophiles BY KIM AND TERRY KOVEL Wine spoils quickly if exposed to the air. It was not until the 18th century that glassblowers were able to make bottles with narrow necks that made airtight storage possible. The best seal for the bottle was a cork, and when the English began to bottle wine in the 1700s they also invented a corkscrew to open the bottle. At first, corks were removed with an existing tool used to clean muskets. But soon other types of openers were invented. Early corkscrews were usually T-shaped devices that pulled the cork. It is said that the first patented corkscrews were made in England in 1795, France in 1828 and the United States in 1860. There are many types of corkscrews. The single-lever corkscrew and the double-winged-lever corkscrew, patented in 1930, both screwed into the cork. Raising and lowering the lever removed the cork. Hundreds of other clever designs can be found, so collecting is a challenge. By the 1970s, collectors could find books and clubs for corkscrew enthusiasts. A corkscrew collector is called a helixophile. Prices have been going up during the past 20 years as the supply of old, unusual corkscrews gets smaller and interest grows in wine and its necessary accessories. A figural brass corkscrew named Hootch-Owl, patented in 1936, sold for $1,725 in February 2014 at a Jeffrey S. Evans auction. Q: I have a Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Double R Bar Ranch metal lunch box that pictures Roy on Trigger, Dale Evans waving her hat in greeting, and their dog, Bullet, running alongside. The back and sides look like wood grain and there is a brand on the back. Can you tell me when it was made and what its worth? A: Your lunch box was made by the American Thermos Co. in 1953. A nearly identical box with blue or red sides and a wood grain back was made in 1954. It came with a matching thermos. It was the first completely lithographed steel lunch box made. The lunch box with thermos sells for $75 to $100 today; the lunch box alone for $50 to $80. Q: I am stumped by a piece of wooden furniture I inherited. It looks like a three-drawer dresser, but the dressers top and the hinged front of the top drawer lift up to reveal a trouser press next to a small storage bin. And the bottom drawer front opens on hinges, too. The only mark I can find is Pat. No. 112843. Its impressed on both the press and the back of the dresser. The press can be unscrewed from the dresser. Can you tell me who made it, how old it is and what its worth? A: The patent number refers to a British patent, not an American one. The patent application was filed in England in 1917 by Frank Henry Miles, a cabinet manufacturer, Crown Cabiwww.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 BARBECUE IS WHAT WE DO LET US DO IT FOR YOU!In Lee & Collier Counties Call Our Catering Manager at (239) 209-0940 Catering Services from 25 5,000 www.ribcity.com Catering!

The patent was granted on Jan. 31, 1918. It relates to Miless invention of a trouser press & cabinet combined. The patent application states that the press could be adapted to any piece of furniture as desired or if required made as a separate press. It is likely that your combination trouser press-dresser dates from the late 1910s or early 1920s. The storage bin was meant to be used for small wearing apparel (such as collars, etc.). As a piece of furniture, your press-dresser might sell for $200 to $300. Q: I found two Bevo metal trays in my great uncles attic. They have a red border with the words Bevo the beverage at the top, The All-YearRound Soft Drink at the bottom, and a center lithograph of a carriage pulled by six horses. A man in a suit is driving the carriage and a fox dressed in a suit is sitting backward at the rear of the carriage. I have never heard of this beverage. Do you know anything about it? Are these trays worth anything? A: Bevo was a near beer, a nonalcoholic malt drink, made by Anheuser-Busch from 1916 to 1929. It was popular during Prohibition. Reynard the Fox, the footman on the carriage, is an Anheuser-Busch mascot. The mischievous character first appeared in European folk stories 800 years ago. Because few people remember Bevo, there are not many collectors who would want to buy the trays. The graphics are interesting, though, so each tray could sell for $75 to $100. Q : I have a plate that has a stamp on the reverse that reads J.K.W. Decor, Carlsbad, Bavaria in an ornate circle of gold. There is a crown above the initials. The plate is 12 inches wide and has a gold rim circling a wide turquoise band with gold decorations. The picture in the center looks like a mirror image of the Jean-Francois Millet painting, The Angelus, showing a farm couple praying over their vegetables. Does this plate have any value? A: The mark on your plate was used by the Josef Kuba Werkstatte, a porcelain factory founded in Karlsbad, Bavaria (now Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic), in 1930. The factory was occupied by German soldiers during World War II. After the war ended in 1945, the factory moved to Wiesau, Bavaria, Germany. After Kuba died, his son took over the business. The company closed in 1989. Many of Josef Kubas plates feature transfer decorations based on famous paintings. The plates were made as inexpensive decorations and sell today for less than $20 each.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC26 WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 CONTRACT BRIDGEA highly unusual discard BY STEVE BECKERWhen is a signal not a signal? Answer: When it obviously does not mean what it says. For example, take this case where South gets to four spades on the bidding shown. It is not clear whether West should lead the ace of hearts, the suit his partner bid, or make the more aggressive lead of a diamond, hoping to get a diamond ruff. Be that as it may, West fortunately elected to lead a diamond. Had he led the ace of hearts instead, declarer would have finished with an overtrick. East won the diamond lead with the jack and continued with the ace and king. It was on the third round of diamonds that West made a most unusual play he discarded the ace of hearts! Under the circumstances, there was no way East could construe this play as a signal for him to lead a heart next. Rather, East reasoned that his partner was trying to stop him from shifting to a heart. So East continued with a fourth round of diamonds, and Wests jack of trumps became the setting trick. Observe that if East had shifted to a heart instead of leading another diamond, which he very well might have done without Wests extraordinary discard, declarer would have had no problem scoring the rest of the tricks. But West had recognized that a heart shift by East could easily prove fatal, and he headed off a potential disaster by making the most dramatic discard he could find.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC34 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 Key to ratings Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: The Chapel Grill, 811 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 206-4310Casual yet stylish, this restaurant in the 65-year-old former First Baptist Church is packing the pews, so to speak, with a wide-ranging menu that puts a new spin on some very familiar dishes. The calamari, for instance, is strewn with chorizo sausage and tempura-fried julienned carrots. Marinara would be too mundane for such a concoction, so the chef dreamed up a delicious mangorum sauce that complements the calamari nicely. Seafood or steak, Chapel Grill seems blessed for success. A New York strip was perfectly grilled to medium-rare yet achieved a crusty exterior that most home grillers would envy. The well-marbled 14-ounce cut was dry-aged for 21 days, which imparted a noticeable richness. Red rock cod Florentine was a hefty fillet with thick flakes of moist white meat within its crisp, oven-baked Parmesan crust. Inventive cocktails such as a vodka gimlet with balsamic-laced strawberries and fresh basil, or a bourbon highball spiked with The Kings Ginger liqueur and a kiss of cloves are sinfully indulgent. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2012 Cirellas Italian Bistro & Sushi Bar, 25265 Chamber of Commerce Drive, Bonita Springs; 948-3885A restaurant that serves both sushi and Italian food? It doesnt seem to make sense, yet Cirellas somehow pulls it off. We found much to like and little to criticize on either side of the menu, despite the sense of cognitive dissonance involved when you start your meal with raw fish smeared with wasabi paste and move on to pasta Bolognese. The sushi chef here does not skimp on the fillings, producing larger rolls that dont leave you hungering for more. Classic dishes such as eggplant Parm and linguine with clams are present, but Cirellas doesnt lean too heavily on long lists of American-pleasing piccata and Marsala variations. The pasta dishes are available in two portions, which is a nice gesture. The housemade gnocchi with Bolognese were tender, perfectly rolled and oh-so-fresh. The vitello di Parma was marked by delicately caramelized meat with bits of the salty ham, zesty slivers of garlic and mellow, milky cheese a delight for the palate. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2013 Escargot 41, Oak Shore Shopping Center, 4339 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 793-5000Ignore the somewhat tired shopping center in which Escargot 41 sits. Once inside you will be enveloped by the charm, hospitality and fine cuisine of France. Chef/owner Patrick Fevrier and his wife, Jackie, are the consummate hosts. Revel in a superb wine list, crusty French bread and any of seven escargot appetizers. Also noteworthy is the house-cured salmon lightly rubbed with coffee. Yellowtail medallions were dressed in lemon-butter caper sauce, and a nightly special called Bacchus began with a tender filet mignon topped with escargots, portobello mushrooms, green peppercorns and merlot sauce. Sides of unadulterated mashed sweet potatoes and green beans were just right. There are lovely souffls for dessert or moulleux au chocolat, the chefs elegant and excellent take on lava cake. (Have it with the suggested glass of Rasteau, a sweet wine with chocolate notes.) Never mind the location. This is an exceptional restaurant. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2013 FISH, Village at Venetian Bay, 4369 Gulf Shore Blvd., Naples; 2633747At this stylish bistro, you can have your fish cooked or raw and, either way, be assured of a well-executed meal. Space is tight in the dining room, so those who need more of it might want to sit on the patio, weather permitting. (If you dont mind tight spaces, small tables by the window afford great views of the bay.) Oysters Rockefeller were tasty but pricey ($20); a grilled octopus appetizer was skillfully rendered. Blackened redfish with etouffee sauce and a heaping bowl of cioppino had nearby patrons enviously eyeing our table and for good reason. Both were excellent. Should you have room for dessert, skip the creme brulee and opt for the tiramisu, which was expertly rendered and large enough for sharing. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2013 Thai Udon Cafe, Magnolia Square, 5926 Premier Way, Naples; 596-7331Tasteful artwork, soothing earth tones and soft (volume, not genre) jazz greet customers at Thai Udon Cafe. Thaiborn Khwan Sawai and her husband, Naples Philharmonic cellist Adam Satinsky, have created this multi-cultural oasis where the menu overflows with Thai and Japanese specialties. A classic papaya salad shrimp, shreds of green papaya, carrots, green beans and peanuts was sweet, tart and spicy, as ordered; tum kha soup with shrimp and miso soup both proved to be faithful renderings. The special pad Thai studded with chicken, pork, beef and shrimp was a symphony of textures and tastes. The kitchen also did a fine job on seafood and vegetable tempura. The standout: mussels basil, with vegetables and savory brown sauce. And, for dessert, we finished with a lovely dish of sticky rice and mango. Beer and wine served.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 10-16, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 CUISINEPiccobello worth seeking out for Italian-style comfort foodWhile exploring Italy by car some years back, one of my greatest joys was driving the back roads and ferreting out little neighborhood trattorias where locals gathered for convivial evenings of hearty food and good wine. I hadnt expected to happen upon such a place just half a block off of bustling U.S. 41 in North Naples, but thats indeed what Piccobello is. You cant see it from the road. You have to meander behind the Walgreens at the corner of U.S. 41 and Wiggins Pass Road to find the modest storefront in a small strip of shops that are part of the Wiggins Pass Cross Shopping Center. Piccobello has been in business for two years in what I believe used to be Gatsbys. There are a couple of cloth-draped tables out front and even more along the side on a spacious covered porch. Inside is a cozy dining room with 14 tables dressed in brown linens and a long bar that opens onto the kitchen from which emanate the sounds and aromas of serious Italian fare under preparation. Pendant lamps that resemble small bird cages shed warm light upon the room thats a study in earth tones. Framed photos of Italy add context between large windows. It was early on a weeknight, so things were slow inside at first. Gradually, the porch collected diners and, eventually, a few wandered inside as well. For a small restaurant, the wine list is laudable, with some nice Italian selections available by the glass or bottle. We enjoyed a good bottle of San Polo Rosso di Montalcino, a ruby red wine with notes of cherries, berries and light tannins. The menu contains dishes with which most Americans will be familiar: cacciatores, Parmigianas, piccatas and pastas such as Bolognese, ravioli, Alfredo and carbonara. We saw a couple of handsome pizzas pass by as well, and although we didnt try one, we made note to return to do just that. I was particularly intrigued by one topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, tuna, onions, black olives and capers. Salads come in small and large versions; soup is also offered for a starter. We tried a small Caesar salad ($4.70 small, $8.50 large) and a bowl of stracciatella soup ($6.25). The Caesar was a simple mix of fresh romaine, croutons and cheese in a well-balanced dressing. Although my dining companion and I both thought a couple of anchovies would have enhanced the salad, it was good nonetheless. But better than the salad was the soup, presented in a large bowl that allowed the fragrant steam to rise up and envelope the senses. The Italian-style egg drop soup contained, of course, egg, as well as cheese, tomatoes and fresh spinach. It was a harmonious blending and, with bread and a salad, would have been hearty enough to serve as a meal. From the menu, we sampled the spaghetti with red clam sauce ($19.95), consisting of perfect al dente pasta napped with excellent marinara and topped with fresh clams still in their shells. With a light application of pepper applied tableside by our charming server, Marcello this was a soulful and satisfying dish. Pork osso buco ($25.50) was among the nights specials, and Marcello urged us to try it. His advice was solid. Served over cream risotto, the meat on the large pork shank was fall-off-the-bone tender, the flesh tender, juicy and full of flavor. The chef, who like our server was clearly from Italy, came by to see how we had enjoyed our meals and to offer desserts, proudly describing the ones he makes in house. We tried one of each of the house-made treats: a smooth and delicious panna cotta ($6) with shreds of orange rind, strawberries and a drizzle of chocolate on top, and tiramisu ($6), that incomparable pairing of light-bodied cake and ethereal cream with a drizzle of chocolate sauce for good measure. Both desserts were excellent, although we couldnt quite finish either one after the ample meal that had preceded them. Service was both efficient and pleasant throughout the meal. Our server was happy to make suggestions, quick to refill water and wine glasses and generally kept a close eye on our progress. It was clearly a slow night, perhaps one of the first of the year, but I could see a fair number of people socializing on the porch. I can envision the dining room alive with laughter and conversation on a night when its full.

BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAlthough Diane Torrisi brings a wealth of experience to her job, the chief ingredient in her work is a passion for design. In her residential design business, she draws from many resources that inspire the detail and artistic appreciation for which she is known, including time she spent living in Europe and the casual Florida lifestyle our area affords. Ms. Torrisi is also known for her over-the-top table designs and is the go-to designer for holiday tables and special occasions throughout the year. Shes one of Miromar Design Centers table designers in April and the LUXE choice for this months designer Q&A. Q: Whats your favorite design trend right now? A: The return of wallpaper. Im head over heels in love with the new, largerscale, bold patterns and amazing colors. Also, the trend toward furniture with cleaner lines; gone is the over-scaled look, although comfort remains a priority. Mixing metals is no longer taboo. Think Cartiers eternity rings. Oneofa-kind pieces/antiques are also popular as people are yearning to stand out with that special piece only they have. Im also excited about the powerful return of navy, which is my personal favorite. Think navy velvet tufted sofa! And with the ever-expanding choice of outdoor fabrics, I also like the trend toward using outdoor fabrics inside, which is perfect for families with growing children, teenage boys or pets. Q: What design trend are you glad to see gone by the wayside? A: Over-scale furniture along with the Naples Tuscan look. Fussy window treatments and overuse of the word eclectic as well as the use of cute signs and quotes on boards. Q: If you could have any designer decorate your house, who would it be? A: Hands down the celebrity designer I would love to hire would be Martyn Lawrence Bullard. I was lucky enough to meet him when he came to the Miromar Design Center. He was beyond charming, and I love his fearless approach to color, which he combines with exuberance and ethnic exotica. Locally, we have so many different and wonderful designers, but if I had to choose one, it would be Kevin Steffanni. Besides being one of the nicest guys youll ever meet, Kevin is a visionary. His designs are timeless and beautiful. He has the finely tuned talent of mixing styles and yet managing to leave a touch of himself in each design. Q: What dream decor or amazing items would you most want in your home if money were no object? A: Original art. It doesnt need to be expensive. If you love it, it will find a place in your home and stay in your heart forever. On my own personal wish list is a Hermes wool/cashmere throw, a collection of Ralph Lauren brass hurricanes, Hermes porcelain vide poches (change tray) and a set of Louis XV dining room ghost chairs. Q: If a homeowner wants to go it alone, please share any advice you have for decorating resources. A: Well, first of all I compliment them because the task of designing can be daunting with so many choices in the marketplace. Designing a home is not done in a weekend as certain TV shows would have us believe. If you dont have the desire or budget to hand over your project to a designer, do your homework, decide on your colors, styles and budget, and consider hiring a designer even for just for an afternoon or even a couple of hours to ensure youre on the right road.

Re-do in The Dunes salutes owners art and inner gourmetBY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen Dawn Harmons clients needed to transform their home in The Dunes from claustrophobic to free and easy, she led the charge to completely remodel the kitchen, all three bathrooms, media room, master bedroom, lanai and entry. As the principal of Little Palm Design Group in North Naples, Mrs. Harmon has seen her share of remodels in her 20-year career. From old cottages of Naples to new places that people wanted to make their own, she has replaced shag rugs and old cabinets with charm and fresh updates. This particular home underwent a transformation from a closed-in space to a contemporary coastal feel. Stripped down to the concrete floors and studs, this home received new custom cabinets, flooring, plumbing fixtures, lighting, appliances, tile, moldings, hardware and countertops. Several luxury additions were installed, including a custom theater room and den. Grass cloth wallpaper and a custom metal railing were added to the twostory stairway/entry to warm up what used to be a sterile space. Mrs. Harmon also added new window treatments and furniture. The homeowners drew inspiration from magazines and Houzz, and I worked with them on their vision and how to pull it all together, Mrs. Harmon says. But there was a bigger picture to this remodel, quite literally. The client had a lot of artwork from years of traveling an attribute to the home design but a feature that made it a unique challenge. She was tasked with incorporating a lot of art collected from their travels around the world after her clients sold their second home in San Diego and brought their favorite pieces to Naples to be included in the new space. In addition to collecting art, Mrs. Harmons clients also entertain and cook frequently. They wanted a plan more suitable of the time and their lifestyle, so 41 West was chosen as the con-4 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2014 DESIGN MAKEOVERSEE MAKEOVER, 6 Closed-in madness to open-air magicCOURTESY PHOTOSWood floors are part of the overall clean and contemporary look.

Just a few of the structural changes included opening up the kitchen into the great room and dining room and installing a center kitchen island as a gathering spot. Beams were added to the ceiling to create more interest, as ceilings are more important now than when the condo was initially built years ago, and updating that meant more attention to the detail, Mrs. Harmon says. One major kitchen update included cabinetry custom made by 41 West with matching panels that pulled everything in the kitchen together, and the result was a streamlined gourmet kitchen including Taj Mahal quartz countertop, which is a little different than granite and glass backsplash with a hint of green. The new wood floors transformed the entire space, along with custom cocktail tables made to fit the unusual layout and to match the clients desired neutral color scheme accented with aqua and punches of coral.

BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentSpring fashion abounds along runaways in New York, Milan and Paris. But the hottest models are here in Naples, in luxury model homes springing up that would give even the most beautiful supermodel a run for her money in pleasing the eye. Numerous models are available for purchase. The draw of buying one is simple: Gather your toiletries and favorite pillow and move right in. Of course, its a little more complicated than that. But the experts say many new homeowners dont want to think about the details; theyre ready to rock n roll with a home as is.

On the cover: The formal dining room in the Cypress Grande is a rotunda design with a 20-foot ceiling and a plank-style marble floor. peek inside a few of these stunning showplaces. The person who will buy the Cypress Grande in Quail West will probably say, This is for me this is my style, and its just the way I want it, says Titan Homes CEO Bill Spinelli. I have built 80 models in my career, and this is the first one in Quail West, but it really is a convenience factor. People fall in love with it and its easy, plus they dont want to wait. Titan Homes Cypress Grande is listed at $2.3 million, and its highly likely that a buyer will plunk down the cash and call it good. Thats a big part of model behavior: Homeowners are finding out just how convenient and less stressful it is to not have to make any decor or structural decisions, or to have to wait on builders or designers to get moving. Homeowners waited and waited through the recession. Now they dont want to wait a year and a half for their dream house, Mr. Spinelli says. Model homes fulfill that desire for a new home sooner rather than later.The person who will buy the Cypress Grande will probably say, This is for me. This is my style, and its just the way I want it. Bill Spinelli, Titan Homes MODELFrom page 9
The Cypress GrandeThe Cypress Grande is a home of understated elegance extremely sophisticated and streamlined. With no hint of the dark accents that can drag a mood or make a home appear heavy, it likely will remind people more of The Hamptons than of traditional Naples. The look was achieved by Cinnabar Designs Diana Hall, Laurie Walter and Elizabeth Gonzalez. They managed to create a showplace that makes people feel relaxed as soon as they walk in. The secret to this home is the luxurious layout and tender color scheme with accents that dont overwhelm. Its over the top without being pretentious, light and airy but solid as though it could withstand anything Mother Nature throws at it. And its much larger than it appears from the outside. Four bedrooms and 4 baths isnt unusual in Naples, but the ceilings are unique, and the 10-foot doors custom designed to fit the massive front entrance certainly make a statement. The butlers pantry is a big seller, and the circular dining room adjacent to a 400-bottle wine display room is an instant attraction for anyone who entertains. (Vintner dinner, anyone?) The study is larger than many master bedrooms, and the kitchen has two beverage centers. In the great room, a massive Corsi custom-built entertainment center is made from alder wood and has a breakwater painted finish. That manufacturer in particular is so upscale, Mr. Spinelli says, they fly qualified customers to their headquarters to meet with designers. Another custom detail: a Ceruse finish wood beam that supports the 20-foot ceiling in the formal dining room. The patio is equally impressive. Mr. Spinelli has built about 350 summer kitchens and says he has learned through the years to listen to his customers. The patio reflects some of that wisdom. One thing Ive learned is dont put the grill where the guests are, he says. Theres a $2,000 fan that removes most of the smoke, but its better to locate the grill where its convenient, but far enough away from guests so they are comfortable. Taking Stock in Lelys LakoyaStock Development recently debuted its own impressive model in Lely Resorts new luxury community called Lakoya. The Marlowe model open house attracted dozens of potential buyers who oohed and ahhhed as they meandered through the spacious showplace. The effort Soco Interior Design professionals invested in the Marlowe was reflected everywhere, in the placement of every vase and chair, every pillow and painting, all working in tandem to seduce even the most jaded shoppers. Were there a Naples model home wish list, the mighty-yet-graceful Marlowe would certainly be at the top of it. Stock now has 70 models open in eight communities throughout Naples. What you build is what people will buy, and we are building in many locations, explains Claudine Lger-Wetzel, vice president of sales and marketing for Stock. You have to have models to show your quality of work, but often times the average buyer wants a home theyve seen completely designed. If you think about the amount of time designers selecting the furniture and the builders put into the home, the time it takes to build is extending, Ms. Lger-Wetzel says. There is a pent-up demand, and I will certainly confirm there is an upward turn in families wanting everything done and a turn-key home. How do homeowners buy models? Some buy them outright; others engage in a lease back that means a little waiting, but not as much as building a home from scratch. If its a brand-new model, we may need that model to sell other homes; if someone buys it, we might lease it or rent it back for a year, she explains. And it works because the new homeowner is getting a good price and its ready for them to move in. One Stock customer saw one of the companys model homes and instructed the builder to replicate it exactly down to the last detail. There is a wow factor involved, and we realize if we put things in our model homes, people will visualize that for themselves, she adds. Stock opened 16 new models in Lely Resort and four in Twin Eagles in February. The builder also has two models at Treviso Bay and 13 in Quail West, with square footage going up to 6,300. Stock is also building in three villages at Fiddlers Creek: Isla del Sol, Mahogany Bend and Majorca Villages. Theres also a furnished model in the Park Shore neighborhood of Old Naples.New from Minto CommunitiesMinto Communities Vice President William Bullock is excited about one of his companys newest neighborhoods, Bonita Isles, where four models are admired visitors. The first phase of Bonita Isles sold out last year, and the company is quickly selling the final phase the last chance to own a new home in this section of Bonita Springs. In Naples, Minto recently opened three captivating luxury coach home models in The Isles of Collier Preserve. Reflective of the classic coastal architecture of Old Naples, coach home and single-family home designs complement the communitys natural surroundings. The Orchid Grande has two bedrooms and two baths, a sunroom and third-floor nature observatory with a balcony in a total of 2,950 square feet. The three-bedroom, three-bath Hibiscus Grande has 2,960 square feet under air and a total of 3,694 square feet. The Caribwood model has three bedrooms plus den and three full baths in a total of 2,873 square feet (2,214 square feet under air). The three newest models in The Isles of Collier Preserve are in addition to four single-family home models that opened in February. The one-, twoand three-story coach homes range in price from the $400,000s to the $600,000s. All feature high-ceilinged great rooms, private elevators and two-car garages.The Cypress Point at Miromar LakesSlightly north of Naples, another model called Cypress Point in Porto Romano at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club in Estero has heads turning, with interior design by Naples-based Kathleen Sullivan. The hallmarks of this model include lots of aqua, taupe and sand accented by espresso finishes and glass accents. Nearby, the Augusta model at Miromar Lakes has gone to the greener side with organic textures and patterns, clean transitional lines and finishes. WCI built both the Cypress Point and the Augusta.Mediterras Delfina modelThe model-home show continues in Mediterras new Delfina model. Built by London Bay Homes and with interior design by Jennifer Stevens of Romanza Interior Design, the Delfina has almost 6,000 square feet and boasts four bedrooms, 4 baths, formal living and dining rooms, a study, game room and a significant outdoor living area with a covered verandah and summer kitchen. The Delfina was designed to capture the imagination from the moment you approach the home, London Bay CEO Mark Wilson says. Weve added a number of details that enhance the presentation from the moment of entry. Colors such as blue and citrus with gold accents work together with modern audiovisual elements such as the hidden television that emerges from custom cabinetry. In the study, grayish wood floors lend a certain sturdy elegance to the space, while the cabana guest room and game room offer bonus space that add value to the home. Dazzling design details such as twin chandeliers make this house. Home cooks will sing about the walk-in pantry and breakfast area with a bay window that overlooks the pool and lake. In the Serata neighborhood of Mediterra, the Delfina is available for $2.439 million. London Bay Homes also completed construction on a smaller model, the Bettina, in the Cabreo neighborhood of Mediterra, which has a sales gallery thats open daily.The Brighton at Quail WestIn Quail West, London Bay Homes Brighton model is more palace than house, ringing up at more than $4 million and offering four bedrooms and five baths. Romanza Interior Design outfitted the Brighton in a tailored look of white-on-white with dark tones for a soaring, dramatic effect. The Brightons butler pantry connects the kitchen and dining room, and again, the 80-inch wine refrigerator is made for homeowners who, well, love wine. So many aspects of The Brighton call out to luxury, but a few of those attributes, including the master bedrooms ebony bamboo floor, are dramatic contrasts to spectacular touches of gold in lamps and accessories, along with the French door topped by a trio of transom windows.

With names such as Mandalay Bamboo, Havana, Island Cove and Java Loft, todays collections reflect the companys roots. The couple recently changed the name of their East Indies Trading Company to West Indies Home Collection. Drivers along Tamiami Trail in North Naples cant help but notice the impressive storefront on the west side of the highway just north of the entrance to Mercato. Inside, the spacious showroom is filled with furnishings and accessories for indoors and out in authentic tropical style, from rattan sofas and etegeres to hand-carved Balinese day beds and armoires that are as much art as they are functional furnishings. (It can take two or three weeks to complete the intricate carving for the back of a single chair, Mr. West says.) We have learned to have an appreciation for these amazing craftsman, Mr. West says, adding theres a story behind every piece at West Indies Home Collection. He and his wife have been working with some of their craftsmen for 17 years. The Wests design team either creates everything featured in the store or they find craftsmen to do it for them. Whether you want to make a statement, have a conversation piece or are just rounding out your relaxed coastal design, we either design or have these items made for us, Mrs. West says. The Wests are also lending their years of expertise to help the community. For example, a trip they are organizaing recently brought a winning bid of $100,000 at the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Festival and will benefit Golisano Childrens Hospital in South Fort Myers. You choose to live with things that have meaning to you, Mrs. West says. That might mean Thai silk pillows in a color that reminds you of something you love, or it may be a work of art that speaks to your soul.
