Maybe you heard it from your parents or your teacher or your coach or your mentor. Or your drill instructor, but he would have said, trousers. And maybe its true pants, trousers or skirts. They put them on like everybody else. As a metaphor, its one of the greatest equalizers ever molded by Americans. Is that man rich? Does that woman come equipped with the title boss? Is he a star or is she the owner? And you when you pull on your pants or your skirt, do you go to work at Walmart, or lay asphalt, or wait tables, or pick up trash and haul it to the county incinerator? Do you serve doughnuts, or run the IT department, or harvest tomatoes and watermelons or take calls and keep the books in somebody elses business? Are you marketing another pant-wearers dream? No matter, here in the United States. We all put our pants on the same way. Dont we? Were all human beings, no one person more valuable than another, at the core. Bank accounts and stock investments dont define us. Privilege and station at birth, or genetic good luck (big brain, high energy, stable temperament), not to mention race, sex, religion or daddys money or land they dont make us better. Do they? They might make us more productive. More successful. More widely traveled. More comfortable. But at bottom, its our humanity that holds an intrinsic and unassailable value, reshaped endlessly in unique physiologies. And each of us carries that humanity in equal measure, whatever our talents. We know that, most of us, but too often we seem to forget. Which makes me wonder if a notion so simple in the recognition but sometimes so challenging in the application respect for others is being taught in school. We cant know if its being taught at home until we read the book of character outside the home until we see somebody in action. But in school we can insist: Respect has to be taught. Creatively, if necessary. Public education in Florida provides less wiggle room for teacher creativity than once upon a time. Right down to the kindergarten level, teachers are required to follow texts approved by the state strictly, and to maintain a steady flow of paperwork that traces their progress with students, day by day. A few years ago when my sons kindergarten teacher wanted to introduce a glimpse of the art of Van Gogh to her class of black, white and brown schoolchildren little bright faces from suburb or city street, from gated community or migrant community she had to get permission from the principal. The same was true when she introduced a variety of music to those kids: classical, Chinese, American marching band, the holiday music of this culture or that. What she wanted to offer was outside the prescribed curriculum. Thirty years into her calling, this teacher was a brilliant and talented woman. Shed once been taught to respect others, apparently (her mother a Scottish immigrant; her father a New York Jew and a G.I.), because she taught it herself in part by offering students quick glimpses of worlds other than their own. But to do that required not only a creative vision for living, but also the kind of creativity that one uses to soften starched-shirt regulations and regulators. She shouldnt have had to work that hard to do it right, but since she did, she did. By the end of the school year, that teacher had 22 very different children living on the same page, in the same culture. And she had taught them something that appeared in no method-derived textbook written by people with Ed.D. doctorates: that they all put their pants on (or their dresses) the same way, even if they came from Holland, could paint flowers and fields so you would never see them the same way again, were missing an ear and had been dead for 120 years. She taught them that each was worthy, that each could learn A,B,Cs and 1,2,3s in English, together. Some were and still are better at it than others, but that didnt matter. She taught them that every human is a brush stroke laid down from the palette of a world of humans splashed radiantly across the canvas of life together, like it or not. And just as in all painting, every stroke of any color every dappled dot, twist, whorl, line, dash or swirl counts. None is superfluous. She taught them that. Ive heard religious people say that were all equal in Gods eyes. But I expect us all to be equal in each others eyes, too. That should be a cultural imperative in the United States. It should be taught in every home and school. We all put our pants on the same way. So dont treat the next fella cavalierly. I try to practice it in living and writing, because I think it adds to our strength. When I write profiles about people with whom I may disagree deeply on some issues, for example, I always approach them sympathetically. I figure they will inevitably have strengths I wont, and know things I dont. I try to consider them teachers of a kind and I look for something, some one thing, that we hold in common or that makes me proud. Rarely or never do I fail to find it. We, all of us, dont have to agree with each other or even to understand each other fully, to be proud of each other. To be glad to stand in the same world and draw breath from the same natural bank, with each other. And why? Because we all put our pants on the same way. d b e t o t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 OPINION amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly VA health cares socialist paradiseFor the left, the Department of Veterans Affairs is how health care is ideally supposed to work. No insurance companies, no private doctors, no competition just the government and the patient. The VA is an island of socialism in American health care. It generally provides adequate care to a limited universe of people and for only certain conditions but has long been plagued by scandal. It is perhaps the worst bureaucracy in the federal government. As with all such single-payer-type systems, the cost of the notionally free health care is in the rationing, in this case the wait times that have had desperately ill vets hung out to dry for months. The usual Obamacare excuses dont apply here. The existence of the VA isnt politically controversial. No one is trying to repeal it, or sabotage it. What were seeing is simply unaccountable bureaucracy in action. When the benchmark was created for VA facilities to get vets appointments within 14 days, meeting the goal was easy: All it took was logging appointments dishonestly to hide the wait time. This is how poorly performing government bureaucracies have met goals from time immemorial; its why, on a much more vast and monstrous scale, Soviet five-year plans were always such runaway successes on paper. The VA system worked for everyone but the patients and the whistle-blowers. The daughter-in-law of a Navy vet in Phoenix who died after never getting follow-up for his urgent case was told, in lines that perfectly capture the spirit of socialized medicine: Its a seven-month waiting list. And youre gonna have to have patience. But the bureaucracy acted with alacrity when its reporting scheme was at risk. In St. Louis, the former chief of psychiatry says he was put under administrative investigation when he complained about wait lists. A whistle-blower who worked in Fort Collins, Colo., alleges that she and a colleague were transferred when they refused to hide wait times. So far, the VA affair is running the usual course of Obama administration scandals, with the requisite denial and lack of accountability. VA Secretary Eric Shinseki has referred to the incidents as isolated cases (even though 26 facilities are now under investigation). No one has been fired. The White House has reverted to its default position of maintaining that it doesnt know much about whats happening in the vast government it always wants to make bigger. Spokesman Jay Carney seemed to suggest that the president first heard about the scandal on CNN. Of course, the problem with wait times and the trustworthiness of the VAs own reporting wasnt news. The Government Accountability Office has been warning of it since 2000. It headlined a December 2012 report, VA HEALTH CARE: Reliability of Reported Outpatient Medical Appointment Wait Times and Scheduling Oversight Need Improvement. The VA obviously isnt going anywhere, but the scandal should be the occasion for making it more transparent and accountable, and giving vets more choices. As of now, it represents a case study in how a bureaucracy tends to its own interests, even at the expense of veterans relying on it for matters of life and death. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Maya Angelou: Still she rises You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may tread me in the very dirt But still, like dust, Ill rise.These are the words Maya Angelou wrote in her poem Still I Rise. She died last week at 86 at her home in North Carolina. In remembering Maya Angelou, it is important to recall her commitment to the struggle for equality, not just for herself, or for women, or for African-Americans. She was committed to peace and justice for all. If growing up is painful for the Southern Black girl, being aware of her displacement is the rust on the razor that threatens the throat, she wrote in the opening pages of her first breathtaking autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, which chronicles her childhood to the age of 17. Born Marguerite Ann Johnson in St. Louis, at the age of 7 or 8, she was raped by her mothers boyfriend. He was killed shortly thereafter. As a result of the trauma, she remained virtually silent for five years, speaking only to her brother. She became a single mother at 17, and struggled to support her son as she worked a variety of jobs, eventually gaining success as a calypso singer. She heard Martin Luther King Jr. address the Harlem Writers Guild, of which she was a member, and joined with a fellow performer to produce and sing in Cabaret for Freedom in Greenwich Village, to raise funds for Kings Southern Christian Leadership Conference. By some accounts it was King, or the legendary activist and organizer Bayard Rustin, who asked her to take on a leadership role with the SCLC, which she accepted, becoming the groups Northern coordinator. Maya Angelou became a supporter of Fidel Castro and the Cuban revolution. She met and fell in love with a South African civil-rights activist, and they moved to Cairo with her son. They stayed together for three years, but she stayed on in Africa, moving to Ghana, where she met Malcolm X. The two collaborated on the pivotal political project that Malcolm X was developing, the Organization of Afro-American Unity. She returned to the U.S. to support the effort, but Malcolm X was assassinated shortly after her return. That tragedy, and the 1968 assassination of her friend Martin Luther King Jr., devastated Angelou. It was in 1969 that she was encouraged by the author James Baldwin, among others, to focus on her writing. Thus was born her first of seven autobiographies and the phenomenal career for which Maya Angelou is known around the world. Reciting her poem On the Pulse of Morning at President Bill Clintons first inaugural in 1993 catapulted her into the mainstream consciousness. While some schools and libraries still censor her work for unflinchingly depicting the life she led, it was through my hometown library, while in my early teens, that I first saw Maya Angelou. The library invited her to speak, and speak she did and danced, and sang, in a display of talent that made us laugh, cry and gasp as she moved her black and white audience of hundreds ... together. In commemorating Maya Angelou, none can speak as eloquently as she did herself about people who inspired her. At the Democratic National Convention in Boston in 2004, she spoke of Fannie Lou Hamer, who attempted, 40 years earlier, to gain recognition for the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. Angelou said: In the most private part of the heart of every American lives a burning desire to belong to a great country. To represent a noble-minded country where the mighty do not always crush the weak and the dream of democracy is not in the sole possession of the strong. Maya Angelous tribute two years later, on the passing of her friend Coretta Scott King, could be said of Angelou herself: She was a quintessential African-American woman. Born in the small-town, repressive South. Born of flesh and destined to become iron. Born a cornflower and destined to become a steel magnolia. In eulogizing actor and activist Ossie Davis at his 2005 memorial service in Harlems historic Riverside Church, Maya Angelous delivery was poetic as always. Her words of reflection on his death can serve as well as we note her passing: When great trees fall, rocks on distant hills shudder. Lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants lumber after safety. When great trees fall in forests small things recoil into silence, their senses are eroded beyond fear. ... Great souls die, and our reality bound to them takes leave of us. Maya Angelous eloquence, in her poetry, lives on:Out of the huts of historys shame I rise Up from a past thats rooted in pain I rise ...Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise I rise I rise. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

DistinctlNORRIS PROFILES IN PARADISEPublisher is passionate about community involvementIt would be the exception rather than the rule to attend a charitable function on the Paradise Coast and not see Kaleigh Grover, publisher of Naples Illustrated, there. Since joining Palm Beach Media Group in 2006, she has played a key role in building the Naples publications brand. Shes also been the driving force behind several new custom publishing products for the company. In addition to overseeing the 15-year-old Naples Illustrated, Ms. Grover oversees six other PBMG titles: Naples Charity Register, Neapolitan (the in-room book of the Waldorf Astoria and Edgewater hotels), Fifth Avenue South Magazine, One Life Magazine, Estate Portfolios and Salut!, the official magazine of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. The marketplace has made us the leader, she says proudly. Were going to continue giving readers and luxury lifestyle advertisers one of the best regional magazines in the country. One of five siblings, Ms. Grover was born and raised in Tampa and has been drawn to the water since birth. It must be in my genes, she says, adding her father paid his way through medical school by working as a tarpon fishing guide in Boca Grande. After studying nursing and business at Auburn University, she chose the latter for her career and worked the hotel industry for 15 years, most of which was as national sales manager at the former Registry Resort (now the Waldorf Astoria Naples). She and her husband, Michael, have two daughters: Sara, a student at UCF, and Alleigh, a student at FSU. An avid entertainer, Ms. Grover loves to cook and decorate things she watched her mother do with ease but insists shes a true tomboy at heart. I have more power tools than my husband and not just drills. I have the big table saws and nail guns, she boasts. When shes not fishing and diving, shes building furniture and what-nots. Now that my garage and shed are filled to the brim with unnecessary things, as Michael calls them, we need to get started on building a cabin on our farm in Kentucky so we can de-clutter here! she laughs. Thank goodness for shellac nail polish, she adds, because sandpaper cant hurt it and paint comes right off when its time to clean up for the charity events that I am also passionate for. Ms. Grovers long list of community involvement includes serving on the board of directors for the Education Foundation of Collier County (now Champions For Learning) from 2005-2012 (she was chairman in 2010 and served as Golden Apple chair in 2008). In 2012 she was a Glass Slipper award recipient from the foundation. She has also served on the sales and marketing council of the Collier Building Industry Association and was named Associate of the Year in 2006. In 2010 she was one of Florida Weeklys Power Women, and since 2009 she has served on the board of Sports Club of Naples/ Bonita Springs. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 78 a.m. weekdays at www. bobharden.com. bobHARDEN bobharden@hotmail.com Talking points with Kaleigh GroverMentors: Its clich, I know, but my parents. Both of them taught me wonderful life lessons that I try hard to honor. Something your mom was always right about: Do it right the rst time. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I was all over the board. My father always said, Make a career out of your hobby and you will always enjoy going to work. I was always in trouble in school for talking in class, so I guess in some ways I followed my heart, because I havent stopped talking and socializing yet! What would you be doing if you werent doing this? Traveling. Last vacation destination: We rented a home in Eleuthera in May for our 25th wedding anniversary. No phone, TV no Internet pure pleasure! One thing on your bucket list: Chatting with Jimmy Buffett (back to that talking thing!). Hidden skill or talent: Carpentry. Really. Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I could sing. Something youll never understand: Terrorism. Advice for your kids: Be kind and make a difference. Something thats been on your mind: How far I have to go in preparation for a big race in November. What makes you laugh? Almost everything. Laughing is my favorite pastime. Last book read: D.J. Nikos The Riddle of Solomon.

Heart Attack Warning Signs Include: Neck, Back or Jaw P ain Chest Pain Nausea Fatigue Dizziness Cold Sweat Teen drivers, parents invited to Street Smart presentationDrug Free Collier and the Collier County Public Schools driver education department invite teen drivers and their parents to a presentation designed to encourage smart choices behind the wheel. Street Smart is an interactive program that offers a real-life view as seen through the eyes of first responders. Thanks to support from Coastal Beverage, the program is offered as Collier County students begin summer break and face the 00 Deadliest Days for Teens on the Road, according to the National Safety Council. Street Smart will be presented from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, June 6, in the auditorium at Barron Collier High School. Attendance is free. Our goal is to promote better communication between parents and their children prior to the start of the 00 deadliest days, says the school districts Tracy Bowen. The program covers topics such as distracted driving, driving under the influence, fatigued driving and use of seatbelts. Nick Healey, a 17-year-old Barron Collier High School student who lost his leg in a car accident over spring break, will also address the audience about the importance of remaining vigilant behind the wheel. As he learns to overcome new challenges each day, Mr. Healey remains positive and determined to help others. Information about local programs designed to improve teen driving skills, including the Teen Driver Challenge sponsored by the Collier County Sheriffs Office, will also be available. The NSC report shows that car crashes involving teen drivers killed almost 1,000 people during the summer of 2012 and that more than 550 of those victims were teens. Since car crashes remain the leading cause of death for teens in the U.S., Drug Free Collier is working with local community partners to find solutions. Protecting our children is our primary mission, says Melanie Black, executive director of the nonprofit organization. Although our focus is substance abuse, we recognize that other risks also threaten todays teens.

Rick Bhasin, MDNeurosurgeon Clinical Af liation, Department of Neurosurgery University of Florida Minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat neck pain, back pain and spinal stenosis.

Mr. Purisimas lawsuit names Au Bon Pain, Carepoint Health, Kmart, the New York City Transit Authority and LaGuardia Airport among the parties allegedly causing him so much distress (by fraud, civil rights violations and even attempted murder). Lowering The Bar also noted that $2,000 decillion could also have been accurately nominated as $2 undecillion or even two octillion gigadollars. Only in Florida Calvin Rodriguez was arrested in Port St. Lucie in May as the man who had been using a shaved key to steal a series of cars from parking lots. His spree came to an abrupt halt as he sped away from police in a stolen Honda Civic only to crash into a huge alligator in the road. On May 1, a wildlife trapper called to Pine View School in Osprey, south of Sarasota, removed four alligators (one of which was 8 feet long) from the campus while classes were in session (but without disruption). Beachcombers in the Gulf of Mexico town of Redington Beach were treated on May 17 to the sight of a full-grown elephant treading water about 20 yards offshore. (The animal had made its way to the water after being unloaded for a commercial birthday party appearance.) Democracy in action During a regional session of Spains parliament in February, a photographer from the newspaper El Diario Montanes captured a shot of legislator Miguel Angel Revilla looking at a picture of a nude woman (in a magazine otherwise concealed inside a folder). (He explained later that he was of course just reading the articles.) In May, U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia of Florida was captured on a C-SPAN camera during a House Judiciary Committee hearing casually eating his earwax. In the sequence, described on a Time magazine blog, he dug into his ear, inspected the results, placed them in his mouth, then went back for seconds. (Rep. Garcia explained later that he was actually dealing with a hangnail.) One of the leading theories as to the cause of a radiation leak at a nuclear waste dump near Carlsbad, New Mexico, in February is the facilitys recent, unanticipated switch to organic kitty litter. Previously, an inorganic variety had been used to absorb liquid in the waste drums shipped to the facility from bombmaking plants that had been temporarily storing the waste pending creation of a permanent nuclear waste storage site. Latest religious messages In April, Indias Delhi High Court judges declined to halt the local governments program of posting pictures of deities on the walls of buildings in order to discourage public urination (that surely no one would soil his lord). The plaintiffs pointed out that the campaign was so clearly ineffective that perhaps the deities images were even making the problem worse that evidence so far shows that confronting the images might even compel some people to relieve the pressure on the bladder. An unnamed 60-year-old Buddhist monk was arrested in Nantou County, Taiwan, in April after a convenience-store manager said he was caught red-handed swiping packets of beef jerky. I dont know why, he told police, but lately I had this craving for meat. He also had trouble with honesty, initially denying his guilt before finally confessing to the officer that I have let Lord Buddha down. (Buddhists traditionally are strict vegetarians.) Fine points in the law The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled in 2013 that it was not necessarily illegal for teachers to send students sexually oriented text messages that the state law banning the practice violated free speech. As a result, in February 2014, prosecutors in Tarrant County dropped their case against a junior-high teacher who had exchanged 688 text messages with a 13-year-old female student over a six-day period in 2012, on topics such as sexual preferences and fantasies and whether either of them ever walked naked around the house. The messages would be illegal, the court had ruled, only if they led to a meeting or an offer of sex. Despite a 1971 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court declaring that governments could not punish people who are merely annoying, dozens of towns (according to a March Wall Street Journal report) continue to regard the behavior as criminal. (The justices decided the word is too vague to give fair warning of which behaviors are illegal, but an Indiana deputy attorney general told the Journal that anyone with ordinary intelligence knows what is annoying.) New York has such a law, as do Lawrence, Massachusetts, and Cumberland, Maryland among the 5,000 mentions of forms of to annoy in a computer search of municipal ordinances. (Britains House of Lords in January blocked a proposed anti-annoyance law.) Among the discretionary punishments authorized to Georgia judges is banishing an offender from the county in which he committed the crime. Complained driver Ricardo Riley (who as of February is barred from Walton County), I didnt commit no murder, Im not a sex offender, Im not a criminal. I just got a speeding ticket. Judge Brad Brownlow, perhaps irritated at Mr. Rileys request to reduce the original fine, instead piled on punishments including banishment. Mr. Riley, from adjacent Gwinnett County, has friends he can no longer visit. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Fisherman lands endangered sawfish off Sanibel shore BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentBrian OReilly can now spin a fish tale sure to induce envy among other saltwater anglers. The Punta Gorda resident found the unexpected at the end of his hook while fishing near the Sanibel shoreline recently: a roughly 15-foot-long smalltooth sawfish. The rare, sleek, prehistoric-looking fish is known for its rostrum, a long, flat snout with rows of razor-sharp, teeth-like structures along the outside edge that gives it a saw-like appearance. Sawfish use their rostrums to locate, stun and kill prey. Mr. OReillys catch was a relatively large specimen of Pristis pectinata, which can grow up to 23 feet in length, weigh as much as 1,300 pounds and is considered endangered by the federal government. It was amazing to be able to witness something like that firsthand, Mr. OReilly says. Its a beautiful creature. The afternoon of May 19, Mr. OReilly had anchored his 19-foot boat about 200 yards offshore and had two lines in the water, each hook baited with half a ladyfish, in hopes of snagging a shark or tarpon. His first hour on the water was punctuated only by a 3-foot sand shark taking the bait. Then Mr. OReilly got a hit that was deceptive at first. It took both baits from both rods, he says. One hit and I grabbed the rod and then a second later, the other hit. Initially, I thought I had a couple of large fish that went out in the same direction. I knew it was really big because I couldnt get it up from the bottom. He thought he might have a goliath grouper or stingray in the 400-to500-pound range on the line as he fought to land it. For about an hour, I couldnt tell what the fish was, he adds. I finally had to put all my weight into it, at the risk of breaking the line, just to see what this thing was. As he brought the fish to the surface, he saw the 4-foot rostrum ensnared in his tangled fishing lines. In order to remove the fishing line, he steered the boat toward the nearby beach at idle speed and came to rest a short distance offshore in a few feet of water. A passing tourist helped him tie a nylon line around the sawfishs tail so they could safely cut away the fishing lines. The task took about half an hour, and the whole affair proved fascinating for passersby. There were so many tourists on the beach, clapping and cheering and having a good time, says Mr. OReilly. He gauged the fishs size relative to his boat and says it took off like a bullet when it was released. My primary concern was to make sure that thing was healthy and to get the line off the saw so it could live another 20 or 30 years, he says. Fishing has long been a hobby for Mr. OReilly, who heads out in pursuit of snook, redfish and trout about three or four times a month. The sawfish was his largest catch thus far, although he has snagged an 11-foot bull shark and a 180-pound tarpon in the past. This was the biggest thing I ever saw, he says, adding it was a great feeling to get the massive fish untangled so it could go on with its life. Im a conservationist. I love Florida and I love our waters. I hope the population explodes and that theyre (smalltooth sawfish) here for a very long time.

Called a Healthy Living Center, the new building will house services such as pediatrics and family medicine; speech, physical, massage and occupational therapy; and vision and dental screenings in addition to regular Y programs. There will also be sickchild care for working parents. Plans also call for a new Youth Development Center that will allow for expanded enrollment; additional scholarships will become available for families that cannot afford the childcare and education programs the center will provide. Vegetable gardens will dot the 20-acre campus, enabling children to learn about agriculture and proper nutrition. The new Y, with what is restored and what is coming, will be second to none in Southwest Florida, Mr. Thein predicts.Rising from the ashesA half-day schedule meant the facility was closed when the fire erupted at about 2 p.m. last Labor Day. Mr. Thein was bowling with his family when he received a phone call from the campus maintenance director notifying him of the blaze. When he arrived on the scene, he recalls, The flames were at least 10 to 15 feet through the roof. He stood on the sidewalk and watched firemen work to extinguish the fire and limit damage from the three-alarm blaze. It pretty much destroyed everything. What wasnt burnt out was smoke damaged or water damaged. Naples Y staff was able to restore member services, programs and youth sports in alternate locations around the county within 10 days. The Ys insurance carrier covered $1.5 million of the roughly $7 million cost of creating the Healthy Living Center. Fundraising received a major jolt in February, when Best Buy Inc. founder Dick Schulze and his Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation pledged $1.5 million to the project, if the community could match that gift amount. Thanks to a $1 million contribution from an anonymous donor, the Y was able to raise the matching funds in less than seven weeks. I didnt know if we could raise the $1.5 (million), but I knew we had the right cause and we had the right community, says Mr. Thein. We got large donations and small donations. Its not any one person. I think everybody believes in the Y, and theyve come together in this community. It was the Community Foundation of Collier County that brought the Schulze family foundation and the Y together. The foundation is here to connect donors with nonprofits, foundation President and CEO Eileen ConnollyKeesler explains. Obviously, when you have a disaster such as the Y did, it really gets the communitys attention because the Y is one of those organizations that really needs to be a community staple. In the fires wake, the executive boards of directors of the foundation, the Y and the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce met to discuss what needed to be done to fast-forward the construction project. The foundation provided a $25,000 grant for the Y to hire a capital campaign director, and foundation donors contributed $40,000 to the fund drive. Mr. Schulze and his wife Maureen live in Lee County. The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation is based in their home state of Minnesota, where its known for supporting education programs, youth development and medical services. Now that Mr. and Mrs. Schulze are residents of Florida, theyve wanted to get involved in helping the community here as well, says Mary Beth Geier, coordinator for family foundations Florida region. She cites the YMCAs good works as the reason why the matching funds were accumulated in a relatively short period of time. Donations are still being sought for the $1.5 million needed to construct and outfit the second of two new gyms in the plan.YMCAFrom page 1 To view plans for the Greater Naples YMCAs new Healthy Living Center, visit www.donstevensondesign.com/3d-animations.php and select YMCA Video.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 A17 Thursday, Aug. 12, 2004: a pleasant summer morning and a nice afternoon, with the wind carring a sweet sea-scent many miles inland, accompanied by the edges of an endless gray sky. It was exciting, at first, because what lay just beyond the western horizon was supposed to miss this looming storm named Charley that looked like an evil explosion, on television radar. Most people on the Gulf Coast still felt excited the next morning, too, a day that fell almost comically on Friday the 13th. Although the sky grew deeply, ominously gray, they trusted both the National Hurricane Center and their local meteorologists, who said that they were not on Hurricane Charleys target map. But that was wrong. Starting just before 11 a.m., that brutal day became the hallmark legacy of three regional meteorologists, who recognized nearly simultaneously that the southwest coast was about to get hammered: Jim Farrell, chief meteorologist at WINK-TV, and Jim Reif, the chief meteorologist at ABC7, along with Robert Van Winkle, the chief meteorologist at NBC2. Wayne Sallade, Charlotte Countys director of the Office of Emergency Management (the EMO), calls it Jim Reifs bright shining moment. He had a lot of bright shining moments, but this was the brightest. Mr. Reif died April 7 at 61, following a bicycle accident in Fort Myers. But on that infamous morning, and together with Mr. Van Winkle and the NBC2 team, he decided that an 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center was going to be wrong or if not wrong, not right enough. They recognized that the intense and fast-moving storm had experienced a wobble, and would likely turn right (east) toward the barrier islands of Lee and Charlotte counties, and the heavy population centers nearby. It was a maverick moment. No meteorologist likes to differ on air from the scientists of the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center. But they did it anyway. Even though the National Hurricane Center has not declared this a major hurricane, Mr. Reif announced, this is in fact a major hurricane, and we are growing more and more concerned that this is going to be a major impact to us in Southwest Florida. And then he nailed it, on the air: You need to take protective measures now, to protect your life and the lives of your loved ones. Those warnings, some two hours ahead of the NHCs confirmation that Southwest Floridas meteorologists were right, not only saved lives (about 15 deaths ultimately occurred), but it saved many people from having to endure a lot more suffering than they did.How it happened Friday morningBeginning at 8 a.m., the NHC issued a standard, data-based analysis and prediction of the dangerous storm. That was based on information delivered by radar and the hurricane hunter crews that fly their aircraft into the storm. The NHC also issued an intermediate advisory at 11 a.m., something it didnt used to do frequently but offers regularly in a program called NOW-casting, when a storm becomes an imminent threat, explains Mr. Sallade. In that advisory, which turned out to be off the mark, the NHC noted that Hurricane Charley was still tracking north of the region, with winds blowing as much as 150 miles per hour. The men and women at the NHC were doing their job exactly as they should have, says Mr. Sallade. The 11 a.m. advisory was based on 8 a.m. data. They need three hours to get that stuff out. They were reporting what they saw, he explains. At the Hurricane Center, theyre scientists. Theyre not media people. Meanwhile back in the studio at NBC2, Jim Reif both a scientist and a media person was doing his job, too, along with everybody else. Theyd been up all night, cool, calm and collected, watching a bullet that hadnt changed course. But suddenly at about mid-morning they were sweating, because they realized that everyone from the Caloosahatchee River north was in the crosshairs of the violent storm. What Jim and Robert were doing, says Mr. Sallade, was tracking Charley from what the current position showed very nearly in real time. They were showing where the aircraft said the center of circulation was, in relation to the advisory which in part was where the aircraft said it was three hours earlier. As soon as the two meteorologists noticed the wobble, they knew they were going to have to break with the NHCs NHCs report. Thats an uncomfortable decision for any, meteorologists say, but especially under pressure. Lives were on the line. First, though, they had to get permission from the boss to make that move Steve Pontius, executive vice president of Waterman Broadcasting. We pulled our team aside, Mr. Van Winkle recalled in an April conversation about Mr. Reif, and Jim said, We need to break with this NHC forecast. Even though we both got credit for making that call, we needed Jims experience that day. Mr. Pontius recalls the entire moment as both extraordinary and bizarre. Gods honest truth, its Friday the 13th. And all day long we had prepared for a hurricane we thought was going to miss us and go 120 miles out in the gulf and hit north of Sarasota, and be a big deal. So our focus was getting some live trucks up and staging them so we could swoop in up there, when the hurricane passed. About 10:30 a.m., I looked up, and Jim was coming in my door, with Robert. Jim says, Were telling you right now, its going to change course. Its going to impact our area and get as far south as Cape Coral. I said, Isnt there a new National Hurricane briefing coming out in a few minutes? Jim said, Yes, but they wont say that. There are politics and the science involved, so they have to move sl owly. On the spur of the moment, Mr. Pontius called a meeting, and made his decision almost in mid-stride. I looked at them and said, You guys have a responsibility to tell our viewers that this is how we see it, and we strongly suggest you take shelter. They wasted no time. And they were right. They were so spot on, Mr. Pontius recalls, adding this final salute to Mr. Reif a man gone from the flesh, but now in hurricane season eternally present, it seems: When the weather was at its worst, he was at his best.Quick, or crazy, reactionsAll over the region, people saw their broadcasts and reacted. Mike Kiniry, then a WGCU public radio journalist, was sent to the Emergency Operations Center in Lee to do remote broadcasts back to the studio. I was standing out front chatting with Dan Noah, the warning coordination meteorologist down from the National Weather Service in Ruskin. His cell phone rang and I could immediately tell from his demeanor that he was getting serious news, he recalls. The hurricane had turned, and Mr. Kiniry called his mom and told her to get out of her house near the Caloosahatchee River. That night, he would discover his own North Fort Myers house completely destroyed by a huge African mahogany tree except for BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com SEE CALL, A18 THE CALLWhen Hurricane Charley hit Friday, Aug. 13, 2004, lo cal meteorologists made the decision to deviate from the National Weather Se rvice.

Stephanie Davis, Florida Weeklys social commentator, heard Jim Reifs broadcast and retreated from her home to the downtown Cigar Bar for a week. The place had electricity because it was on the grid for the sheriffs office and the jail. Wayne Daltry, then head of Lee County Smart Growth and the man who years earlier had prepared the first sophisticated emergency evacuation plan on the southwest coast for just such an occasion, also heard the warning broadcast. But it was too late to evacuate, he figured. We immediately made the hallway the safe room, and called the kids and told them to do the same, he recalls. Sanibel-based artist Lucas Century, with his wife, Dee, and their greyhound, Gracie, had already evacuated to the Homewood Suites at the Bell Tower. We were dialed into Jim Reif and Van Winkle, listening to their dire warnings about the shift in directions and in particular the 16-foot water surge predictions. They had, for a short time, predicted the storm was headed right for the east end of Sanibel, which is where my old 1960 ground-level cottage was. The wall of water the massive surge never came because the storm was traveling three times faster than other storms typically move on a 27-degreenorth bearing, Mr. Sallade explains. But it was still a terrible blow. This was when the electricity went out and I was left with the awful sick feeling that my property and art studio was about to be blown away, Mr. Century recalls. It was early in the day, but I started reaching for the case of cold beer I found myself guzzling. The broadcasts also gave some people a chance to be, if not crazy, bolder than sanity requires. Stacey Chadwick Brown, an administrator and teacher at Edison State College, recalls hiding at her brother-inlaws house with three small daughters, a wrecked van and a case of bronchitis, while her husband, Stuart, a theater professor at Edison State, stayed home. The home, right on the Caloosahatchee River, was 11 inches above sea level. Stuart tied himself to the ironwork of the house with a rope during the storm and prevented the house from flooding with a hose, a diet Coke can, probably some chewing tobacco and a pump. No lie. Some people didnt even bother to tie themselves to their properties, they were so tough. Or old. Or both. I was taking care of my father who, at the time, was 90 years old, recalls Woody Hanson, a real estate appraiser who grew up on the river in Fort Myers. His father had lived through the famous and deadly hurricanes of 1926 and 1928, just to start with. Our house is situated under some very large oaks that survived Hurricane Donna in 1960, Mr. Hanson explains. I suggested that we should relocate because of the path of the storm. He says, Weve never run from a hurricane and we never will. Aint nothin but a bunch of wind and rain. Doesnt amount to nothin unless the eye wall hits you. Which, in the end, is not the view of most people, Wayne Sallade chief among them. He started the fateful day with his crew at a Charlotte County operations center that amounted to little more than a Teds shed, he recalls. After an emergency telephone call at about 3 p.m. from a friend who told him he would be no good to anybody dead, he moved the 50 or so personnel toward the much safer operations center at the county jail. But they never made it. Halfway there, with the rising wind already at about 75 miles per hour and shrapnel of sorts pocking and cracking the windshield of his Ford Expedition in a dozen places, he led the crew into the airport. As luck and wisdom would have it, he says, hed been able to convince taxpayers in 1999 to provide an extra penny to reinforce one building at the airport, for emergencies. And thats where they went. Jim Reif and company would have told him and probably did tell him to move a lot sooner than he did. But at least he did it in time, he admits. When the storm was over, every other building at the airport was destroyed, Mr. Sallade recalls. But not that one.

Insuring your home from a hurricane expect the best, prepare for the worst BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com With names like Charley, Wilma or Katrina, hurricanes are Southwest Floridas most unwanted houseguests. But its been awhile since weve had the nonpleasure of their company and reports of their mayhem: widespread flooding, trees crashing into roofs, blowing doors out of houses and turning pool cages into something that vaguely resembles modern art. When considering how to insure your home from such windy, watery attacks, local agents shared tips on the best policies for homeowners. The biggest threat that hurricanes present to homes are floods from tidal surge or rising water, said Ted Todd, who runs an Allstate Agency serving the region. If you live in a high-risk zone, having the necessary flood insurance is required if you have a mortgage. But others may assume that because theyre not in the highest risk area, its not worth buying or they wont be flooded but thats not true, Mr. Todd and other agents warn. Homeowners in lower risk areas often hear that they are in a preferred risk zone, but thats a misnomer, said Brian Chapman of State Insurance Agency in Port Charlotte. Nearly 20 percent of flood insurance claims come from these moderate-to-low risk areas, the National Flood Insurance Program says. Even though we say that all the time, we sometimes feel like it falls on deaf ears, Mr. Chapman said. Primary high-risk areas have a one in four chance of flooding during a 30-year mortgage while secondary flood zones have less risk. A big, slow moving storm could damage homes in both zones. Flood insurance covering a $250,000 dwelling and $100,000 in contents runs about $400 per year in a secondary zone. I always tell people, look, if its not your grocery money, buy it, because its just a prudent thing to do, Mr. Todd said. WindAsking yourself what you can do on your own to secure your home is the first step to keeping your costs minimal after the storm and potentially lowering your cost for wind insurance, said Mr. Todd. I think the conversation should center on, how safe is my house from a storm? he said. Where are my weaknesses? Are there some affordable things I could do to make myself safe from a storm and consequently that Got Download? The iPad App Its Local. Its Entertaining. Its Mobile. Its FREE!

He recommends buying a wind mitigation inspection report, even if you have a newer home or havent had one in a while. It costs about $125 from a certified contractor. Be sure to get your moneys worth. Walk around with the inspector and ask questions about what you can do to better protect your home. Simple fixes like bracing for a garage door could help lower the cost of your policy and make the difference between coming through a bad storm with minimal damage or facing a disaster. That will reduce premiums, and from a real estate standpoint, increases value, said Bud Hornbeck, president of Lutgert Insurance in Naples. While many still buy wind insurance from the state-run Citizens Property Insurance, there are many other, usually better options these days. If there is an especially bad storm, the state will likely be severely challenged to handle all the claims it would have in a disaster as the largest insurer of homes in Florida, said Mr. Todd. In the past, the state offered wind coverage because fewer private companies offered the benefit; now, most do. That leaves homeowners with more options, such as consolidating flood and wind policies under one company. Its a good thing if we can reduce the exposure for the state, Mr. Todd said. PropertyHere are two technical terms to look out for when it comes to property insurance. Replacement Cost policies offer full protection in a loss. It would replace damaged equipment with new equipment, without regard to its age and condition. Actual Cash Value policies may cost less but, by taking into account age and condition, can reduce the amount youll be reimbursed. For instance, if you save $500 by purchasing an actual cash value policy, it might pay you $100 for a sofa, whereas replacement cost would buy you a new one. And be wary of insurance mailings offering special deals. In general, its a good idea to deal with a local agent someone who would have to deal with you face to face if you arent properly covered, Mr. Todd pointed out than buying ultra low-cost policies advertised in mailers from elsewhere in the state. Not all homeowners polices are created equal, said Mr. Chapman of State Insurance Agency. For instance, they might both cover a home for $200,000 from a hurricane but one might leave your pool cage uninsured while the other includes it in the policy.

The difference between a good season and a bad season is one storm BY ROBERT VAN WINKLENBC2 Senior Chief MeteorologistA decade after Hurricane Charley hit Southwest Florida and here we go again. Will we get hit this year? Will it be an active season? Is another hurricane like Charley, Wilma or Sandy going to form again this year? Well, the only real important question to ask yourself is: If a hurricane was headed this way, would you be ready? After some very quiet hurricane seasons since Hurricane Charley, my fear is that Southwest Florida may have many residents who wont be ready for the next big storm. After 10 years, our collective memory may be fading and as a bit of amnesia sets in, our motivation to prepare for hurricane season diminishes. As we get ready for hurricane season you will see the long-range forecasts from meteorologists out in Colorado or government forecasters from The National Hurricane Center. All interesting stuff, but the fact is, those long-range forecasts were very wrong last year and they may be wrong again this year. Long-range forecasts are designed to give you a general idea of how active the season will be but they never tell you where the storms will actually go once they develop. Nevertheless, here is the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Outlook from the National Hurricane Center: Named storms 8 13 Hurricanes 3 6 Major hurricanes 1 2 The season average is: Named storms 12 Hurricanes 6 Major hurricanes 3 My advice is to pay little attention to those long-range forecasts when making your decisions to prepare for the season ahead. The long-range forecasts dont really matter. We live in Florida and we are as vulnerable to hurricanes as ever before. Its only going to take ONE hurricane to make for a very bad year and sooner or later we are due for another bad year. Preparing for hurricane season isnt rocket science. The first step is to assess your living situation and start with simple answers to simple questions. 1. Can I ride out a storm with reasonable security in my home? 2. Can I take care of myself and my family for several days after a storm? 3. If I am ordered to evacuate, where will I go and how will I get there? 4. What will I do with my pets or animals in my care? 5. Is my insurance policy up to date? Start with these questions and Im sure you will come up with more that apply to you and your particular situation. Take a few minutes and start with the basics and you will be well on your way to establishing your personal hurricane plan. There is nothing you can do avoid hurricanes and tropical storms if you live in Southwest Florida. Weve been hit before, we will be hit again, and there is no way to know for certain when the next storm is coming. So make your plan this year. Keep a close eye on the tropical weather forecasts and be sure to watch NBC2 News every day if a storm is pointing this way. If I am right and hurricane amnesia continues to spread across Southwest Florida, we could find ourselves feeling unnecessary panic if a storm moves toward us this year. It doesnt have to be that way as long as you have a hurricane plan in place. It only takes one storm to make it a bad season. Make a plan and be ready.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 A33 When formulating a hurricane plan, make sure it includes all members of the family, including pets. After so many animals were abandoned following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Hurricane Charley in Southwest Florida, disaster preparedness officials have stepped up measures to help pets and to encourage owners to plan ahead in case a hurricane strikes. Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties all have emergency shelters for people and their pets, although space and therefore, access is largely restricted to those in spots where evacuation is mandatory. People should have a hurricane plan for their pets as well as family but the pet-friendly shelter should not be their plan, says Ria Brown, public relations and information manager for Lee County Domestic Animal Services. It is intended as a last resort if they cannot execute their personal plan, not because they failed to have a plan. If people find they need to go to a county-run pet shelter, they will be required to stay as well and will need to care for their pets throughout the stay. Animals must be current on immunizations and have sufficient food, water and an approved crate. The best option is for people to leave the area and take their pets with them. Dont expect local veterinarians or boarding kennels to accept animals. They will fall under the same guidelines and conditions as residents. And, should a hurricane strike, they are likely to be without power as well. To prepare their pets for hurricane season, owners should attend to the following: Vaccinations: Make sure pets are current on these now. It takes a couple of weeks for most immunizations to become protective so its too late once a storm approaches. Identification: Put pets county licensing tags on their collars, as well as an ID tag with your phone number. Make sure your address and phone number is current on ID tags. A microchip ID (available through most veterinarians as well as Animal Services), is highly recommended because collars can be lost during storms but the chip will remain implanted and owners can update the company as to their whereabouts, Hurricane kit: Gather up pet supplies. (See accompanying box.) Medications: Make sure you keep a few weeks worth on hand so you wont have to rush to refill them at the last minute. Secure a place to stay.Pet hurricane kit Leash and secure collar Pet food (in waterproof containers), enough for at least one week Water for one week Manual can opener Bowls for food and water Impact-resistant crate of sufficient size (no soft-sided or homemade models and one for each pet) Bedding (blanket or towels) Litter, litter box and scoop for cats Pets regular medications Toys, chewies and other stress relievers County license and other identification (microchip IDs are encouraged) Proof of vaccinations Photo of pet Pet first-aid kit Grooming items Websites Leelostpets.com: The Lee County Domestic Animal Services site has a section dedicated to storm preparedness for pets.

Create a checklist of items you will want to take with you if you have to leave. Take before pictures of your home for insurance purposes. Find out the elevation of your home. Make sure your street address is clearly marked on your home. Hurricane conditions are possible within the next 48 hours. Clear your yard of potential ying debris, including lawn furniture, toys, etc. Lower the water level in the swimming pool by one foot. Board up windows.Gas up the car. Check your oil and tire pressure. Get cash. ATMs and banks may not be open after a storm. Turn the refrigerator to the coldest setting. Store plenty of water. Hurricane conditions are possible within the next 36 hours. Gather important documents. Finish shuttering doors and windows. Evacuate if you are ordered to do so. If youre staying home, designate a safe room. Interior bathrooms or closets on the lowest level with no windows work best. Charge cell phones and other devices.Stay indoors. Stay away from windows even if theyre shuttered. Listen to media reports for the latest information. Stay inside even if it appears calm. Do not go out until the all-clear is given. The longest part of the process, recovery can take weeks. Move slowly and cautiously as you survey and clean up. Most injuries take place after the storm. Do not use public water until you are noti ed that it is safe. Avoid travel if possible. Do not connect generators to house wiring. Beware of downed power lines, wild animals and even domestic animals that may be frightened or lost. Take pictures of damage and contact your insurance agent. Agencies and organizations offer emergency helpHindsight is always a dishonest voice for the present. Storms on the west coast have been few since Hurricane Wilma during the 2005 season the last major hurricane to affect the Fort Myers area. But no one wants to walk down the street and see fallen trees and power lines scattered along the road, and wonder what to do next. Yet, this scenario is a reality we should prepare for during every hurricane season. Floridians know from experience that neighbors, churches and local businesses come together in unprecedented ways to help with recovery efforts. Nevertheless, weve compiled some of the contact information for the big organizations that can serve as a starting place for either volunteerism or for your own recovery once the weather system has passed. From reporting downed power lines to who to call about clean water, canned food and local shelters, these accredited contacts will help with your questions and needs. Whats in a name?

There are six lists that continue to rotate, changing only when there is a hurricane so devastating that its name is retired. BridgesTravel across the areas bridges becomes unsafe once winds reach gale force, or in excess of 34 mph. Even if physical barricades are not present, drivers should exercise common sense when pre-storm travels involve crossing bridges. Evacuation orders for Southwest Floridas barrier islands will be issued well in advance of a storm, and those affected should promptly heed such orders, before travel across bridges becomes unsafe and roads are closed off.

Families must prepare for the additional steps needed for family members with memory disorders.Advance preparations Consult with your physician and pharmacy about what mechanisms they have in place for continuity of care and prescription needs in the event standard communications lines are down. If your loved one lives in a residential facility, find out about its disaster and evacuation plans. Ask if you will be responsible for evacuating your loved one. Prepare an emergency kit (see below for suggestions). Enroll in MedicAlert + Alzheimers Association Safe Return, a 24-hour nationwide emergency response service for individuals with Alzheimers or related dementia that wander or who have a medical emergency. Call (888) 572-8566 or visit www.alz.org. If you are already enrolled in MedicAlert + Safe Return, make sure your information is up to date. Keep all medications organized and in a safe, accessible place. Pre-register at your countys specialneeds shelter in case you need to evacuate to a shelter. Know your evacuation route.Emergency kit Consider preparing an emergency kit in advance. Keep it in a watertight container and store it in an easily accessible location. Your emergency kit might include: A recent picture of the person with dementia. Easy on/off clothes (a couple of sets). Supplies of medication (or minimally, a list of medications with dosages). Velcro shoes/sneakers. Incontinence products. Extra identification items for the person, such as an ID bracelet and clothing tags. Copies of legal documents (such as power of attorney), medical documents that indicate the individuals condition and current medications, insurance cards and Social Security cards. Physicians name, address and phone numbers (including cell phone). Flashlights and batteries. Battery-operated radio. Earphones and calming music, as loud areas can increase agitation of someone with dementia. Simple activities (photo album, scrapbooks, etc.). If a hurricane is coming your way Get yourself and the person with Alzheimers to a safe place. If the need to evacuate is likely, do not delay. Try to leave as early as possible to minimize long delays in heavy traffic. Alert others (family, friends and medical personnel) that you are changing locations, and give them your contact information. Contact them regularly as you move. Be sure there are people other than the primary caregiver who have copies of the person with dementias medical history, medications, family contacts and physician information. Purchase extra medications. Stock up on bottled water, nonperishable foods. Have the Alzheimers Association and MedicAlert + Safe Return phone numbers. Coping with agitation Approach the person from the front and use his or her name. Use calm, positive statements and a patient, low-pitched voice. Reassure. Respond to the emotions being expressed rather than the content of the words. For example, say, Youre frightened and want to go home. Its OK. Im right here with you. Dont argue with the person or try to correct. Instead, affirm his or her experience, reassure and try to divert attention. For example, The noise in this shelter is frightening. Lets see if we can find a quieter spot. Lets look at your photo book together. Take care of yourself Now more than ever, caregivers need help managing their stress and handling some of the behaviors their loved ones may be experiencing during a hurricane. Take care of yourself by finding a good listener to hear your thoughts and feelings about the event. Find moments to breathe, meditate and reflect. The Alzheimers Association-Florida Gulf Coast Chapter can help you prepare. For more information, call (800) 2723900 or visit www.alz.org/FlGulfCoast. The website has additional recommendations for hurricane season preparedness and a list of all shelters, including pet and special needs shelters. SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________

FLORIDA WEEKLYA36 WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 Floridians suffering from hurricane amnesia BY ATHENA PONUSHISaponushis@ oridaweekly.comKieran Bhatia first felt an affinity for meteorology as a sixth-grade student in Maryland, when he realized how much the colors he would see on a radar screen affected his sports schedule. His teacher always had radar on in the back of the classroom. Young Kieran found it fascinating how those colors would forecast his afternoons. Plus, he thought it was cool how everyone liked to talk about the weather. Now a Ph.D. student at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School, Mr. Bhatia has been drawn to the study of hurricanes, though he has yet to live through one. He is not alone. Florida has had eight years of storms staying away and eight years of people moving in. Looking at the states longest hurricane drought in history well, the longest drought on record since 1851 coupled with the huge influx of new residents Florida boasts four cities on Forbes latest Top 20 list of Americas fastest growing cities Mr. Bhatia fears there may be a knowledge deficit in public preparedness. Again, he is not alone. Florida Power & Light executives say they cant sleep at night, tossingand-turning over a complacent public. Emergency management directors worry theres a bit of communal amnesia, as Floridas going on nine years with no hurricane landfalls. FPL estimates 40 percent of its customer base, or close to 4 million people, have never experienced a major hurricane. They are new customers. The Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council reports a 50 percent turnover rate in demographics every eight years, meaning snowbirds who were weathered to tropical storms may have been replaced by tropical tenderfoots. And the Palm Beach County Division of Emergency Management says statistics show 90 percent of people dont even know if they live in a storm-surge evacuation zone. This new blood and lapse of memory motivated Mr. Bhatia to gather his Ph.D. buddies and hit the ground running, forming a Canes on Canes weather team with a calling to inform communities: Heres what scientists want you to know when you see what you see on TV. People look at the graphics they see on TV with more of a skeptical eye than an informed eye, Mr. Bhatia says. They dont know how worried they should be. One of the slides in the Canes on Canes presentation carries the headline, With great weather comes great responsibility, putting a youthful, Spider-Man spin on the subject matter. The ensuing slide shows the paths of the 58 hurricanes that have passed through South Florida since 1851, including 31 major storms; the density of color makes it look like the peninsula has been hit by a Pink Floyd laser light show. Through the fresh presentation, the students hope to impart messages like: A larger storm does not mean a stronger storm, as Mr. Bhatia points out, Hurricane Andrew was a very small storm but one of the strongest hurricanes to make landfall in the U.S. Theres more to the story than the category. Only one mile per hour separates a Category 1 from a Category 2. Only one mile per hour separates a Category 3 from a Category 4. Mr. Bhatia says, Categories, yes, they are important and they are scientifically-grounded, but at the same time, its just a peak wind speed, its not something we want someone at home to look at and say, OK, Im basing all my decisions on if its a Category 1 versus a Category 3. Theres more to the storm than the fastest observed wind speed. Remember the water. Mr. Bhatia says the flooding due to storm surge is a silent killer; it does not receive a lot of attention but statistically, it is the No. 1 cause of deaths in hurricanes. A lot of people take a sigh of relief when August passes and theres no hurricane, but the peak for South Florida is October, Mr. Bhatia says. I think people need to realize that when theyre getting ready for Halloween, theyre also getting ready for the peak of hurricane season. The most enlightening part of the presentation may be the explanation surrounding the cone of uncertainty, the storm projection that carries a name as ominous-sounding as some Princess Bride character. Here are the takeaway points of the cone: Scientists design the cone based on what happened two out of three times in the past five years, so one out of three times, scientists expect the storms track to go outside the cone. Scientists will use the same forecast cone all season long, no matter the storm. Uncertainty may be higher in some storms than others, but all season through, youll see the same cookiecutter cone on TV. The cone shows the probable path of the center of the storm, not impact. A storm is much larger than the center of its track. Impact can extend far beyond the cone, even if the forecast track is correct. Just because youre not in the cone, you have to realize that one out of three times, your storm center is forecast to go outside of your cone, Mr. Bhatia says. Everyone should be prepared, not just the cone-destined. On the flip side, he adds, If two out of three times the centers going to come over you, that should be enough to start preparing, right? Asked if the science is saying Floridas due, since the states months away from being nine years hurricane-free, Mr. Bhatia says, The science is telling us that South Florida is always due. Historically, one out of every three years well have a hurricane that affects South Florida, so I think every year, you should be expecting a hurricane to come Floridas very unique in that we have great weather but it comes with a price Id say were always due, not to let your guard down because of recent trends, for all we know, 2014-2015 could be just like 2004-2005. FPL President Eric Silagy punctuates this not a question of if, but when view. We are going to be hit by a storm at some point and thats why we all need to prepare as if its going to be this season, he says. In the years since Floridas last hurricane, Mr. Silagy says FPL has prepared by investing $1.4 billion to harden its system; inspecting all power poles (over a million); inspecting more than 15,000 miles of line (Mr. Silagy lends perspective by saying thats the equivalent of going from Florida to California round-trip twice); clearing vegetation from over 100,000 miles of line, (which Mr. Silagy equates to going around the world four times), all thanks to the time Mother Nature has given them. Mr. Silagy prays people dont take this time for granted. He encourages everyone to prepare. Thats what we do here at FPL, he says. Every day that were not actually responding to a storm, we are preparing for a storm. Mr. Silagy says this at FPLs Physical Distribution Center and Category 5 Command Center in Riviera Beach during the utilitys week-long, simulatedstorm drill. Every year, FPL makes up a fictional, virtual hurricane so employees can hone their craft at post-storm power restoration. This year virtual Hurricane Echo strengthened to a Category 3, making landfall in Highland Beach. Storm surge swelled up to nine feet in Palm Beach. Six to 12 inches of rain fell throughout the state. Five tornadoes spun off the storm. The hurricane exited near Jacksonville. We dont drill to understand what we do well, Mr. Silagy says. We really drill to understand where we can do better, where there are gaps, where we can improve. Wanting employees to be hit by the element of surprise, much like a real storm, FPL meteorologists threw makebelieve curveballs at them, like the flooding of a substation, or loss of a gas line, all on day one. In early May, the media invited on day five of the drill, Mr. Silagy stands next to a general in the Florida National Guard. Mr. Silagy wears a blue shirt and black loafers. The general wears camouflage and black boots. FPLs signature lightning strike stitched over Mr. Silagys heart. The words U.S. Air Force stitched over the generals heart. Mr. Silagy announces a unique partnership with the Florida National Guard, where a mid-level officer will be embedded for six months with FPLs emergency preparedness unit, allowing the two entities to develop a closer relationship before an event occurs, so they can react better together when it does occur. You cant do a storm restoration without logistics, and I would argue theres probably no better entity in the world than the U.S. military on handling logistics, Mr. Silagy says. And as good as we think we are at FPL with logistics, Im looking forward to learning some lessons. Taking the mike, Brigadier Gen. James Eifert adds, Better integration with our fellow first responders is no longer a buzzword or a catchphrase, its an imperative. Restoring power to the citizens of Florida is more than just a metric, its about saving lives. We need to better understand the vulnerabilities of our power grid, our water supply so we can better serve our citizenry. Bill Johnson, director of the Palm Beach County Division of Emergency Management, does not want people to approach storm season solely relying on government. We are not the safety net, he says. They need to be prepared Weve got our plans in place. Its important our citizens have their plans in place, as well. This season the county is pushing a Know Your Zone campaign. Mr. Johnson describes the campaign as aggressive and comprehensive. He says their message has not changed, but they have reshaped it, simplified it to target a broader audience. The message is four-fold: Make a plan. Build a kit. Be informed. Get involved. Emergency management even revamped their website, shortening their web address to the memorable www. readyPBC.org. And the department added the smartphone app DART, short for Disaster Awareness & Recovery Tool. We want to target millennials, the younger generation, and allow them to push the message up to our elderly population, Mr. Johnson says. Addressing storm surge, Mr. Johnson shares the county mantra: Hide from the wind. Run from the water. At maximum, 250,000 people would have to evacuate Palm Beach County in the event of a Category 5 storm, he says. Concerned that the nervousness people used to attach to the start of hurricane season may have drifted apart like clouds in the sky, Mr. Johnson says he cannot emphasize enough, Preparedness is the key. Dearth of storms, and tropical tenderfoots, worry first responders and emergency managers, who say we arent prepared for season JOHNSON ADAM BARON / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe annual week-long storm drill at FPLs Category 5 Command Center.COURTESY PHOTOThe Canes on Canes team from University of Miami Rosenstiel School, from left: Brian McNoldy, Falko Judt, Kieran Bhatia, Jason Godwin and Matt Onderlinde.

Voters can submit requests online at www.CollierVotes.com under the Vote by Mail tab or by calling the Supervisor of Elections office at 252-8683. Voted ballots must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections office by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, June 24. For additional requirements to vote by mail, visit www.colliervotes.com. Public forums set for school board raceThe Southwest Florida Citizens Alliance urges Collier County voters to be informed about the 2014 Collier County School Board elections. Unlike elections for the Collier County Commission, in which voters can cast a ballot only for the candidate running in their district, each voter gets one vote per school district seat that is up for election. This year, school board districts 1, 3 and 5 are up for election. Nine candidates have registered their intent with Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office so far. There are two ways a candidate can officially qualify for the ballot: 1) He or she must have obtained 1,806 signed and approved candidate petitions by the May 19 deadline. 2) He or she can pay a qualifying fee of $1,507 by Friday, June 20. As of now, there are three candidates for District 1, four for District 3 and two for District 5. This could change up until June 20. Absentee ballots will go out July 23. Early voting is Aug.14-23, and primary election day is Tuesday, Aug. 26. If any candidate receives 50 percent plus one vote in the primary, he or she will be elected. If not, the top two candidates in each district will advance to the general election on Tuesday, Nov. 4. The Southwest Florida Citizens Alliance has scheduled four public forums to give voters the opportunity to learn about the candidates and their views on numerous education issues. The candidates will receive detailed questionnaires prior to each forum. Each forum will have a few questions from this questionnaire, several from the moderators and at least a third from the audience. Attendance is free. All forums begin at 7 p.m., and doors open at 6:15 p.m. Monday, June 23: The Marco Island Historical Museum, 180 S.

Flag Day ceremony will include proper retirement of worn flagsThe Collier County Veterans Council, Naples Airport Authority, Boy Scouts of America-Alligator District, the Museum of Military Memorabilia and the Collier County Freedom Memorial Task Force host a Flag Day ceremony Saturday evening, June 14, at the Collier County Freedom Memorial at the northeast corner of Golden Gate parkway and Goodlette-Frank Road. Starting at 5 p.m., Boy Scouts will accept worn American flags from the public and demonstrate the correct way to fold them for retirement. Ceremonies will begin at 6 p.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance and invocation. The event will conclude with the Scouts presenting the folded American flags to a veteran for burning, performed according to the U.S. Flag Code with an airport incinerator. The Museum of Military Memorabilia, which is housed at Naples Municipal Airport, accepts flags that are too worn to be displayed and has retired almost 3,000 during the past year. Most people know it is improper to display a flag that is worn-out or tattered, but few are comfortable destroying an unserviceable flag, says Robert McDonald, president of the museum. We are happy to take part in the Flag Day ceremony and to provide collection services throughout the year. The U.S. Flag Code specifies when a flag is so worn it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of the U.S.A., it should be destroyed in a dignified manner, preferably by burning. Flag Day was established to commemorate the birthday of Old Glory.

Revolutionary Fat FreezingRecounting a visit to the Mayo Clinics Minnesota headquartersAugust will mark NCHs two-year anniversary as Floridas first and the nations seventh affiliate of the Mayo Clinic. Two years ago, few of us could have envisioned the many benefits in terms of shared knowledge and best practices that would result from our relationship with this iconic institution. An essential part of our relationship is the periodic meetings we have with Mayo. CFO Mike Stephens, Chief Strategy Officer Mike Riley and I recently traveled to Rochester, Minn., to share best practices, marvel at the progress Mayo health care scientists have made with personalized genomics and regenerative medicine, and map projects for the upcoming year that will have the maximum impact for the patients we serve. Mayos Dr. David Hayes, medical director of the affiliated practice network and a cardiac electrophysiologist, shared several best practices, two of which have particular relevance for NCH: Electronic consultation (eConsult) allows an NCH physician to obtain a clinical consultation from a Mayo expert at one of its three campuses. More than 80 percent of the time, this can be accomplished without the patient needing to travel. This resource has been further enhanced by AskMayoExpert, a proprietary knowledge base through which referring physicians seek an online answer appropriate for the patient. Using AskMayoExpert decreases the need for a formal eConsult by 75 percent. Another Mayo affiliate has set up an eConsult automation system to Common treatment for patients with chronic, progressive lung disease found to be ineffectiveA drug used to treat patients with mild to moderate lung damage from the disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is no better than placebo for preserving lung function, according to a study supported by the National Institutes of Health. The finding is in the final report of a clinical trial called Prednisone, Azathioprine, and N-Acetylcysteine: A Study That Evaluates Response in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. It was published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine. Previous studies suggested that therapies combining N-acetylcysteine, or NAC, with immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory drugs could slow progression of the disease. IPF affects about 200,000 people in the United States, only half of whom survive more than 2-3 years from initial diagnosis. IPF is a devastating disease, said James Kiley, Ph.D., director of the Division of Lung Diseases at the NIHs National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. While it is disappointing that NAC was ineffective in preserving lung function in IPF, these are the kind of high-quality data that patients and their caregivers need to make informed decisions. Among other measures, researchers relied on forced vital capacity to assess changes in lung function. FVC is the total amount of air a person can exhale after taking the deepest breath possible. During 60 weeks of follow-up, the study found no statistically significant difference in FVC declines, IPF symptom flare-ups, deaths or hospitalizations between patients treated with NAC and those treated with placebo. We have made major strides in understanding the biology and clinical implications of pulmonary fibrosis, said Fernando J. Martinez, M.D., executive vice chair of medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, New York City, and an author of the study. As a result, there is tremendous hope for therapeutic options on the horizon. HEALTHY LIVING allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org SEE WEISS, A41 SEE TREATMENT, A41

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickVisiting a national park is a popular pastime, especially during summer. We decided to beat the crowds last month by visiting Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks before the vacationing hordes overtook them. Two of our dogs stayed home with a pet sitter, but Harper our most experienced traveler came along for the ride. I dithered about bringing her until the very last minute. Dogs can enter national parks, but theyre not allowed on most trails or in buildings. National park lodges dont permit them, although some campgrounds and cabins make allowances for dogs. And forget about taking Buster to see Old Faithful spout or stroll along the boardwalk at Biscuit Basin checking out the steaming sulfur pools. Hell be canina non grata. I knew all this going in, but as it turned out, the offseason was a great time to bring a dog. The rules still applied, but with trails closed by snow and many lodges not yet open, we didnt feel as if we were missing out on anything by just driving through and seeing the sights. The driving snowstorm at Old Faithful meant that Harper was more than happy to stay in the car while we waited for the geyser to blow, and, of course, we didnt have to worry that she would overheat. Harper also stayed in the car when we pulled over to photograph bison grazing or a couple of grizzlies grubbing for grubs after their long winter nap. But when it wasnt snowing, hailing, sleeting, raining or thundering all of which we encountered during our two days in Yellowstone Harper hopped out of the car at the turnouts and walked with us as we appreciated the stunning views. If a vista required a short hike, we took turns staying with her. At Grand Teton, it was sunnier if still cold, so Harper got more and longer walks at the turnouts and outside the visitor center. At one turnout, we put out some hides (scent) so she could practice her nose work. She found all three in record time just before it started hailing. We stayed outside the parks in Jackson, Wyoming, spending three days at a bare-bones motel and three at a luxury resort offering offseason rates. Meals included car picnics, brunch at dogfriendly Cafe Genevieve and coffee at Persephone Bakery, which had outdoor seating. Other times she snoozed in her crate in the hotel room. On the two occasions that we needed to go somewhere without her a hike with a local wildlife biologist and a visit to the National Museum of Wildlife Art Harper stayed at Happy Tails Pet Resort at Spring Creek Animal Hospital in Jackson, which I had called before our trip to make arrangements. On the way home, we made a bonus visit to Zion National Park in Utah, where we met other people with dogs in tow. Zion has the same pet rules as other national parks, but it has one trail that permits dogs. The paved Parus Trail follows the Virgin River for almost two miles and is an easy stroll. (Tip: Dont drive your dog through Zions hairpin roads if hes prone to carsickness.) For the best national park visit with dogs, make reservations at boarding kennels and pet-friendly hotels well beforehand, and keep your dogs vaccination record handy in case you decide to park him at a kennel for a day while you hike. Traveling by RV is another good option because your dog will have a safe place to stay if you go somewhere he cant. If you want to take him hiking, make your way to the nearest national forest, where dogs generally are permitted. Just dont forget your bear spray. To protect both pets and wildlife, keep your dog on leash and follow the rules about where dogs are permitted.

FREE In-Home EstimatesCuttingedgegranite.com THE D IV A D I ARI ES After the snowbirds comes storm seasonIf you think about it, theres something unfair about the fact that when we finally get Southwest Florida back to ourselves after the snowbirds have fled, the traffic has finally eased up and we can walk into our favorite restaurants and have a seat without waiting we immediately have to contend with the looming possibility that we could find ourselves in the path of the dreaded Cone of Despair. Hurricane season is officially here, and even though we must make sure we always have plenty of gallons of water, cans of tuna and topped-off gas tanks, I take comfort in knowing it could be worse: We could live in an area prone to earthquakes. Theres no Doppler radar for earthquakes; thankfully, we get some warning when our natural disasters are on the way. So, theres that. I recently heard from a third-generation Florida cracker that when the royal poinciana trees (the big, gorgeous trees with the orange/red blooms) get too colorful and full so early in the summer, it makes for an ominous hurricane season. Dont even bother Googling that. I have nothing scientific to back it up. I read it on Facebook by said third-generation Floridian. But I will say that this is my fourth decade here, and the poinciana blooms are way too vibrant and fluffy for this time of year. So, I intend to be prepared. But, honestly, how can a girl prepare herself to live sans electricity for even a few hours, let alone the possibility of several days, in the middle of August? Thats my fear. When Charley hit in I grabbed my photo albums, family mementos and cell phone (a pink Nokia flip phone at the time so old school) and fled to higher ground. We were lucky in my neighborhood some flooding and a few trees down but the horrific aftermath of no electricity for so long meant no air conditioning, no Internet and no ice for cocktails. Luckily, I had a gal pal who owned a home that was on the same power grid as the police station, so along with about a dozen other divas I took a pillow and sleeping bag over every night and slept like, well, a diva, with the air cranked down to 68. Every year when June arrives, I promise myself that this will be the year I invest in a generator or an open-ended plane ticket to Alaska. Of course, the problem with the openended plane ticket is that we just dont know. While the poinciana trees are an oldtimey legend, we can also look at the welldocumented urban legend: If Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel shows up in your town wearing a rain poncho, youre in trouble; but if Anderson Cooper arrives in galoshes, its all over but the crying. And by that time its way too late to book that open-ended flight. When Charley hit, I was smart. When I headed for higher ground (i.e., the sturdy, concrete home of good friends), I didnt choose just any good friends. I went the house of well-prepared friends who regularly host parties, knowing there would be plenty of important supplies, such as spirited beverages and dry goods, such as Chex Mix, crackers and those tasty pretzel thingies filled with peanut butter. From now until the end of November, the smart hostess will be prepared for a pop-up hurricane party. And any good guest, especially those of us who live in low-lying areas, will be wise to keep a supply of hostess gifts on hand. I recommend a bottle of wine and a roll of duct tape. So heres to a boring, uneventful hurricane season one filled with happy hours, beach days and soirees. And lets just admire and appreciate the beauty of those full, vibrant royal poinciana trees while it lasts.Fabulously FloridaLast Friday night at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers, it was all about the beauty of Florida, not the peril, as artists and art lovers gathered for the opening reception of the 28th annual All Florida Juried Exhibition featuring the best of the best by artists from around the state.

Adopt the personality traits of the richMany aspire to be wealthy. Such aspiration begs the self-directed question: How can I become wealthy? If you are not going to inherit wealth and you are not expecting to win the lottery, then you will need to create your wealth. You will need to develop a career plan that creates wealth and you will need to have attitudes/characteristics that will foster wealth creation. Here are some observations and research findings about the personalities of wealthy people, defined within this column as those who have created or built their own wealth. First, they envision their wealth creation: What it will look like, when it will happen, how they will feel, etc. Their dream becomes their subconscious reality. It becomes the filter by which they formulate their responses and actions. They have elements of good character, meaning they understand that they have to be honest, truthful and hardworking, and have an acceptable physical presence. Those who are dishonest and lie will ultimately face demise as they do not live in a vacuum. Unfortunately, some wealthy have an on/off switch for being polite and courteous (e.g., courteous to those who play a role in their wealth plan but discourteous to those who are considered to be disposable in their plan). Not all wealthy people are genuinely nice; sometimes their embrace will be followed by a dagger. They are often persistent in everything. Whether it is their pursuit of wealth, accomplishing large or small tasks despite many obstacles, developing focused and consistent work behaviors. They will keep trying until they succeed. Their personality can be harsh and demanding, which is tiresome to those surrounding them, including fellow workers and spouses. Alternately, they can opt for persistence clothed in cheerfulness, positive thinking and cooperative effort. Regardless, wealthy people do not accept no for an answer. The hurdles they have overcome might have started with acceptance at a college or other school; it might have been getting an internship or summer job. The challenges continue through to raising funds for a start-up business; getting the first client; calling on a potential client who has repeatedly declined doing business; investing in a product or service for which there is no currently no market acceptance; etc. A wealthy person innovates. He or she thinks of new products and services; new ways to sell to clients; new ways to solve problems; new careers to pursue; new venues for amassing wealth. It is hard to persist in doing the same thing if it always leads to failure, so he or she innovates. It is sometimes easier to invent a solution rather than bulldozing ahead. Most wealthy people love what they do. Their job or career is an extension of themselves. They look forward to work; the challenge is often for them to turn off the work mode and enter non-work and relaxation periods. The wealthy are not punching a time clock even if their humble beginnings require a time clock for their salary. They view their job as an opportunity to express their desires and abilities; hard work gives them a sense of satisfaction. The wealthy understand that they are surrounded by an ever-changing world and increasing competition in all that they do. Beyond striving to do better, they undertake opportunities to learn more. The learning comes from their inquisitiveness about the world that drives them to read (and talk to people) within their industry as well as industries outside their career box. Even the discourteous wealthy might take opportunities to learn from those lower on the career ladder. They are often integrated into their community. They view their community not just as a base for their wealth creation but are considering how they can positively impact the people around them. Some of their doing and giving is altruistic and some for business advancement. Many of the characteristics of the wealthy are positive. Regardless of whether wealth is achieved or not, a career characterized by hard work, innovation, persistence, sharing with the community, and holding onto a dream are all good things. Its even better if the negative characteristics (aforementioned) are avoided but none of us are perfect. Sometimes the super achievers will include narcissists. (Narcissism is a selfabsorption and self-love to an unhealthy extreme.) Wealth is an easy vehicle with which to command authority, express superiority, be self-absorbed, self-admire, and to exploit situations and people. Wealth creates an environment in which this personality disorder can persist unfettered. But do not fall into the trap of thinking that all powerful and wealthy people are narcissistic. We have multiple national examples of extreme benevolence, humility and charity among the wealthy all while being innovators, leaders and persistent in pursuits. Obviously, these wealthy have self-imposed healthy boundaries or surrounded themselves with strong people who are not bought by money and are willing to confront unhealthy behaviors. If you develop many of the personality characteristics of the wealthy, you might heighten your chances that you will reach your wealth goal.

Brought to you in part by like us on facebookwww.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 some ideas. I know from experience how nervewracking it can be to watch a child leave the nest, especially when theres so much about the real world he or she has yet to learn, says the author of the new book The Bigs: The Secrets Nobody Tells Students and Young Professionals About How to Find a Great Job, Do a Great Job, Start a Business, and Live a Happy Life. Ill never forget the panic I felt when I realized that while my daughter Avery had received a top-notch academic education, she had no clue how the working world, well, worked, he says. After a yearlong job search, Mr. Carpenter shares, Avery finally received a promising job offer in her field of choice. Then she sent him an email with the subject line: Is this OK to send? Until her horrified dad stopped her, Avery was about to ask her new boss for a later start date so shed have more time to tie up loose ends (i.e., move out of her parents home and into her own apartment). Yikes, right? Fortunately, I was able to redirect her before she inadvertently did any damage, Mr. Carpenter says. But this instance really underscored to me how important it is that we parents actively guide our graduates through this uncertain time. Thats precisely the point of The Bigs, a blueprint that employees of any age and level of experience (not just recent grads) can use to get and do a great job. Having done it all, from opening his own bar to working his way through the Wall Street ranks to becoming the CEO of a major international financial services company, Mr. Carpenter seems the perfect coach. Heres some of his sage advice. Do what youre good at, not what you love. Much of the career advice thats doled out these days encourages young people to follow their dreams and feed their passion. Sure, you want your child to enjoy his career but you also want him to become and remain solvent instead of holding out for the perfect job that might never materialize. Most professionals are happiest doing what they are good at, while pursuing other passions that their careers give them the means to finance on the side, he says. Try out different fields when youre young. Your rookie years when youre young and before you have children are the ideal time to aggressively seek out the best match for your personality and talents. Of course, he stresses, no one should leave a paying job even if theyre unhappy with it before they have another one lined up. Think of your boss and your company before yourself. This principle was the driving force behind Mr. Carpenters insistence that his daughter not ask her new boss for a later start date, and it extends well beyond the first day of work. Make sure your graduate understands that a rookie must prove she will be an asset to the team, not a drain on its resources or a liability for the coach. Often, that means putting the bosss wants and needs ahead of your own. Mr. Carpenters advice is that rookie employees need to show up before the boss, leave after she does, schedule personal appointments after business hours, work six months before taking vacation days, respond to phone calls and emails ASAP (even at night, on the weekends or during vacations). Everyone has to start at the bottom and work his way up, he says. When your child shows that hes willing to sacrifice his own interests for the good of the team, hell have gotten a huge head start on being named Rookie of the Year. Dont agree to anything you dont fully understand. Once your graduate gets her foot in the door, shell likely want to impress her colleagues and higherups at every turn. And in an attempt to avoid looking like she doesnt know what shes doing, she may be tempted to feign understanding and nod her head, even though she really has no clue whats going on. Caution her against this strategy, Mr. Carpenter urges. Early in my career, a client bullied me into saying yes to a request I didnt understand and it cost my employer $25,000, he recalls. Its always better to swallow your pride and say, Im sorry, but I dont understand. I need you to explain. And thats just as applicable in your childs personal dealings as it is in her career. Learn to appreciate diverse work styles. Maybe youre a Type A personality who is totally frustrated by your coworkers seat-of-her-pants approach to projects. Remember, though, by shutting her out, youll also deprive yourself of her creative solutions and outside-the-box insights, he says. Be a good steward of the little things. For example, always proofread your emails for errors before pressing send. Dont leave voicemails unanswered at the end of the day. Keep your desk and computer files organized. Call your clients to share progress, even when a report isnt required. Act like a leader. Even if youre the lowest man or woman on the totem pole, you can still display leadership qualities such as having integrity and a good attitude, providing others with helpful feedback and treating them with respect. Do what you say youre going to do when you say youre going to do it. Enough said. Dont complain about your job to your coworkers. There will be plenty of things your child wont like about her first (and second, and fifth) job. But complaining about them around the water cooler even if she has a very sympathetic audience is never a good idea. Anytime your child is unhappy with something at work, whether its her workload, the tasks shes being given or how shes being treated by a coworker, instruct her to bring those concerns directly to her supervisor, Mr. Carpenter advises. If she feels that isnt possible, tell her to continue to do the best job she can while looking for a more suitable position. Dont badmouth your coworkers. This is Mr. Carpenters personal golden rule for business. Dont vent about your boss in the break room. Dont gripe about your coworker with the rest of the team. Dont even make fun of Johns crazy tie unless hes right there laughing with you. These comments have a way of getting back to the people theyre about, he says. And even if the other person never becomes aware of what you said, your colleagues will make judgments about your character based on your willingness to bash someone else behind his or her back. Live within your means. I promise you will be happier in a small apartment, driving an older car, drinking cheap wine than you will be in a big apartment, driving a fancy car, drinking expensive wine and having to worry about how to pay for it all, Mr. Carpenter says. Dont forget to have fun. Finally, remind your graduate that while shell need to put her nose to the grindstone, she shouldnt forget to remove it every once in awhile. While work should certainly be a priority, its also important to have fun and disengage every once in awhile, Mr. Carpenter says. The fuller and more satisfying your childs life is in general, the more effective shell be at work. Plus, part of living a happy life is having friends and family to share it with.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Wisdom From OmahaSuperinvestors Warren Buffett and his business partner, Charlie Munger, recently held forth at their Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. Here are some paraphrased nuggets: On figuring out what ones circle of competence is: Buffett explained that it requires being realistic and honest about what you really do and dont know. He knows of many CEOs who dont know where their circles begin and end. He thinks that most of Berkshires managers know when theyre playing in a game they are going to win. Rose Blumkin, who sold Buffett her Nebraska Furniture Mart business years ago, is a good example. She didnt take Berkshire Hathaway stock in the sale, because she didnt have a great understanding of it. But she understood real estate and retail and cash. She knew exactly what she knew and did not know. Munger added that competency is a relative thing, and that what he needed to succeed was to compete against idiots. And luckily theres a large supply. On whether they support more prosecutions for misconduct in the 2008 financial crisis: Munger said well never have perfect behavior when there are a lot of people in an environment of easy money, and suggested that some criminal prosecutions can change behavior a lot. Buffett added that he favors prosecution of people more than prosecution of companies, because it changes behavior more. Its easier to prosecute companies because they will often just settle by writing a check. On money and happiness: Buffett said that there isnt a direct relationship between the amount you have to spend and your happiness. He wouldnt be happier if he had six or eight houses, and he said hed actually be much less happy. Money makes a difference only up to a point. But once you go far beyond that point, it doesnt make a difference. Theres much more to learn about money, investing and life from Buffett. Read his annual letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway. com. Roger Lowensteins book, Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist (Random House, $19), is a fascinating read, too. Depreciation AppreciationIn my youth, I was convinced to invest in a now-defunct broadcasting company by a friend who had a large position in it. I bought about 10,000 shares of the microcap over time at an aver age of $ 3.67 per share and sold them for pennies as it fell into bankruptcy. My friend lost most of his investment capital as well, and stated that his money would have been better spent buying a high-end sports car. I learned not to take unsolicited stock tips too seriously and to admit defeat when an investment thesis has failed badly. C.A., HoustonThe Fool Responds: You learned the hard way that penny stocks are ultra-risky and often wipe out naive investors. A fancy sports car would indeed have been a better purchase, but dont think of it as an investment. Investments should ideally appreciate in value over time, whereas most cars will depreciate. Its rarely smart to act on a stock tip without doing your due diligence first. Well-meaning friends might be convincing, but they may not be the most astute investors, and even savvy ones will make blunders on occasion.Wind and RailsYou get two industries for the price of one with Trinity Industries (NYSE: TRN). The company is primarily a railcar producer, building new railcars to replace all of those old, graffiti-stricken ones traveling across the country delivering goods. But over the past few years, its energy division has been steadily growing. (It has other businesses, too.) Consider the promise of its wholly owned subsidiary, Trinity Structural Towers, which fabricates tubular wind towers. While electricity produced from wind power in the United States was recently just 4 percent of all generated electrical energy, the U.S. Department of Energy believes wind could supply 20 percent of all U.S. electricity by 2020. Based in Texas, Trinity Structural Towers is in a prime location to supply wind farms in the Great Plains, the wind-rich region that T. Boone Pickens has dubbed the Saudi Arabia of wind. Trinitys backlog of structural towers orders totaled close to $270 million at year-end 2013. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 12 and rising profit margins, Trinitys stock is appealing. Its dividend that recently yielded 0.5 percent may not be exciting, but it reflects a hefty 33 percent increase. Best of all is its diversification. Trinitys railcar business can cushion any hiccup in its alternative energy business, and while wind power spreads, when large equipment needs to be moved across the U.S., it will likely be done by a Trinity Industries railcar. I was founded in 1976 by two guys in a garage who dreamed of easy-to-use personal computers for homes and offices. One of them left me for a while and established Pixar (which Disney now owns). I was written off by many in the mid-1990s, but after my founders return I launched new products, some of which created new markets. My music-related revenue is on track to eclipse that of my laptops soon, and phones generate the bulk of my sales. My stock went public in 1980, and it has grown more than 180-fold since then. Who am I? (Answer: Apple) Hold the DressingQWhats window dressing? D.L., Sioux City, IowaAIts what some mutual fund managers do to fool most of us. Fund managers regularly report on their funds holdings, typically every three or six months. Since they want to look good and impress existing and potential shareholders, some will sell poor performers theyve held for a while and buy recent stellar investments. That way, someone perusing their list of holdings as of the end of the quarter might be pleased. For example, perhaps the Kitten Kaboodle Fund (ticker: MEOWX) has been invested in some stocks that have plunged or been tied to scandals recently. If so, before the day on which the funds holdings will be recorded and later revealed, the managers might sell out of those dogs, snapping up shares of recent market darlings. This is window dressing. Favoring funds with low turnover ratios (i.e., relatively little trading activity) can thwart window dressers. ***QCan you explain what a percent floor is? S.H., Dalton, GeorgiaAIt refers to your miscellaneous itemized deductions. They need to exceed 2 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI) in order to be of any value. If they do exceed it, youll be able to deduct only the amount by which they exceed it. For example, if your AGI is $50,000, your floor will be 2 percent of that, or $1,000. If your miscellaneous itemized deductions total $825, you cant do anything with them. But if they total $1,600, you can deduct $600. Many expenses may qualify, such as certain homeoffice expenses, tax-preparation fees, investment-related fees, job-hunting expenses and job-related expenses.

Late to arrive is the fastidious Felix Unger, recently separated from his wife and needing a place to live. When the slob and the clean freak decide to become roommates, the results are hilarious. The production stars Luke Sheldon as Oscar and Cooper Ussery as Felix. Rounding out the cast are Eddy Ludwigsen as Murray, Josiah Hurtley as Speed, Ryan Sullivan as Vinnie, Joey Golec as Roy (Friday and Sunday performances), Dylan Rodgers as Roy (Saturday performance), Abby Martin as Gwendolyn Pigeon, Jessica Lang as Cecily Pigeon (Friday and Sunday) and Marley Wilson as Cecily Pigeon (Saturday). Gina Sisbarro directs. The show is sponsored by Jump Hair & Nails. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children and can be purchased at the door or in advance at Centennial Bank on Marco and in the museum gift shop. Tickets are also available at www.theateronmarco.com. Doors open 30 minutes before each performance. Island Theater Company will hold a theater camp for kids in July. For more information, call Pat Berry at 394-0080. Marco kids present Neil Simons The Odd Couple SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ Its a fantasy fueled by episodes of Antiques Roadshow: That knick-knack you dusted off from Grandmas attic is worth thousands. That old painting thats languished in the garage for years is actually by a highly collectible artist. Or that bauble you bought at a yard sale on a whim for a couple of bucks is a priceless, one-of-a-kind object. We all live for that moment on the popular PBS show when the unexpected appraisal is declared and the owners mouth drops open in stunned disbelief as he or she is suddenly catapulted into a higher tax bracket. Almost everyone, it seems, owns some item they wonder about. Grandpas old pistol. Dads stamp collection. An unusual ceramic figurine. WGCU Public Media knows just how popular Antiques Roadshow is and is holding its own version of the show as a fundraiser. For $125, you can bring up to three items to be verbally appraised by experts at the stations first Antiques Appraisal Fair on Saturday, June 7.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 After discovering the joys of the online matchmaking site How About We, I told my friend Josh he should join. I dont know, he said over dinner. Ive tried online dating before. But this is different, I said. Trust me. The next time I saw him, we met at his apartment. Josh pulled out his laptop but still seemed unconvinced. This will change your life, I assured him. At my urging, he filled out the initial profile a few simple questions and uploaded several photos, then we jumped into the best part of How About We: weeding through potential dates. On this particular site, singles suggest something fun to do, such as, How about we go to the park? or How about we meet for cocktails? and other singles decide whether theyre intrigued. The sites format combines the quick thumbs-up or thumbs-down fun of Tinder with the more serious relationship intentions of places like eHarmony or OKCupid. I sat beside Josh on the couch as he scrolled through the single women. I flinched each time he passed one over. Wait a minute, I said. Shes pretty. Her? He paused, considering. No. He continued on. No, no, no, no, no. What about her? I asked. Too tall. And her? Too old. I thought I might cry. How can any woman expect to find love when men are so damn picky? When Josh finally found someone who had potential, I felt more perplexed than ever. That one? I said. Oh, yes, he nodded emphatically. Shes beautiful. He went down the list of her appealing attributes qualities I could see and recognize but that I would never have considered special. When I left Joshs apartment that night, he seemed brighter and more optimistic. For the first time since his breakup, he had dating options. As for me, I felt dismal. Id peered into the male brain and it was terrifying. For a time, the experience left me sour on the opposite sex. But then I met a girl friend for brunch not much later, and we got to talking about the men weve loved. With her, she admitted, they always had a certain boyishness, a brashness and a daredevil charm. I laughed and shook my head. None of that appeals to me, I said. I know, my friend said with a sheepish smile. We all have our pathologies. I thought back to the night in Joshs apartment and the women on How About We that he had selected. I remembered something I read once about the trick to creating a good online dating profile. Instead of striving to be universally attractive, the article said, we should focus on being honest about who we are quirks and all. The goal is not to lure in everyone, just someone who likes our particular features. It occurred to me that the session with Josh was actually liberating. What a relief to know that different men find different women appealing, and how uplifting to realize that we dont have to be the most beautiful woman in the world just one who is beautiful through her own uniqueness.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 James, WGCU membership and special events manager. She came to the local station from Kansas City public television, where theyve held a similar event for eight years. It seemed like a natural fit down here, Ms. James says. Antiques Roadshow is one of the most popular programs on PBS. Why not borrow on that popularity? The closest the actual show has come to Southwest Florida is Tampa and Miami. Wed love to have the Roadshow come here, Ms. James says. But in the meantime, WGCU is holding its own event. As of press time, 15 certified appraisers had signed up to offer their services. Most of them are local, with some coming from as far north as Sarasota and Venice, and one flying in from Chicago. Fine art experts, a stamp guy, general appraisers, Ms. James lists. Im working on a coin guy now. When people purchase tickets, she asks them what they might bring, though they wont be held to it; she wants to know in order to assure the proper experts will be there. So far the list of items includes a pearl-handled pistol, an Art Nouveau vase, a music box, a Chinese carved bone and porcelain box, silver coins, a stamp collection, a Rand McNally wall map from 1880, Chinese silk embroidery, a Russian icon, Bolivian pottery, a three-masted schooner behind glass and a circa 1700 Italian accordion. Attendees will receive verbal approximations of their objects value. These are not written appraisals, Ms. James says. Theyll give folks an idea whether they need to pursue something with an insurance appraiser or not, to make sure that its valued for insurance replacement value. Appraisers will spend approximately five to 10 minutes on an item. People can sign up for the morning session (9 a.m. to noon) or the afternoon session (1-4 p.m.). Michael Logan of Michael Logan Appraisals in Punta Gorda is donating his expertise for the WGCU fair. A certified appraiser of personal property, he teaches the Antiques and Residential Contents course for the International Society of Appraisers. The course covers everything in and around the home, he says. Im a generalist. I have to do everything. Mr. Logan has earned the ISAs top level of accreditation. Hes been appraising for approximately a dozen years, and had an antique shop in Tennessee for 25 years while also working as a mechanical engineer at a chemical plant. His background as an engineer, combined with his love and knowledge of antiques, seemed the perfect combination for a career as an appraiser, which demands meticulous research and methodical, detailed recording of information. What you learn (through becoming accredited) is how much you dont know, he jokes. With every appraisal, I learn something. Its all about research. Is there someone who knows more than you (about an object) or can do it better? You turn it over to them, or you consult with them. The biggest or most interesting thing he found was an original manuscript of music by Stravinsky, written in the composers hand. It was in the estate of a man from North Carolina; a family member had known Stravinsky, and he had inscribed the music to her. Mr. Logan put it in the $50,000 range. The most expensive thing hes ever appraised? Two paintings, neither of which I liked, he says. They were contemporary Russian. Looked like someone had just flung paint on them. But that flung paint was worth $350,00 on one canvas and $250,000 on the other. In the appraisal world, Mr. Logan explains, there are three values: insurance replacement value, market value and marketable cash values. Those are three very different values, he says, describing them as: Id insure it for this, Id see it in a show for this market value, and heres what you might get for it. Sentimental value of an object, is, of course, priceless. Values can, and often do, shift over time. Hummel figurines, for example, have tanked, Mr. Logan says. Some of its really worthless. Things that were worth $150, $250 are maybe $35 now. And as for those Beanie Babies that were the rage back in the 1990s? Pretty near worthless. No way were they going to have increased value, he says.A personalized appraisalAs part of this interview, I bring some items in for Mr. Logan to appraise, to see what he would say. The first is a vintage memory bank a small wooden house decorated with old buttons, beads, toys and knickknacks. Interesting, he says. I havent seen houses, but Ive seen jars and vases that are covered like this. Its sort of a folk art type of thing. Folk art was very desirable among collectors for a while, he adds, but now it doesnt really fit in with the trend toward minimalist, Ikea-type dcor. He thinks the memory bank might be worth $30 or $40, which was less than what I had paid for it. But still, its a unique object of art. Next: a small figurine of a dog. It may be porcelain, he surmises, noting that the word Japan is faintly engraved on it. Its post-war, he says. This was sold in dime stores Kreskes, Woolworths. They did people, animals, dishes. Everything in miniature, just like this. My little dog, he tells me, is worth about what I paid for it: not much. Mr. Logan is intrigued by my small plastic figure with a red cylindrical hat. My best guess, by the writing on it, was that it was possibly a promotional item for a Japanese airline. After turning it around in his hands for a while, Mr. Logan discovers he can unscrew the bottom. A salt shaker? he wonders. What I had thought was a mouth on a minimalist face might actually be a hole out of which to shake salt. Mr. Logan doesnt suggest a price range, but he does tell me it would be worth more with the companion pepper shaker. The next item is a yellow Fiestaware pitcher, something with great sentimental value as it was a wedding present to my parents more than 70 years ago. This is from the 1930s or s, he says. It used to be a real collectible. Its not Depression glass, but there are people who like it. While Fiestaware is still being manufactured, todays colors are different. They dont make the old colors, he says. Once worth $65 to $70, my parents pitcher today is worth somewhere in the $35 to $45 range. The last item I present is a signed 2000 (or Y2K, as the artist referred to it) Robert Rauschenberg poster for what was then Edison Community College. Mr. Rauschenberg, who lived on Captiva Island, signed the posters to help raise money for the schools art gallery (which was renamed in his honor in 2004). Mr. Logan puts my posters value in the $1,250 to $4,000 range. As best as I recall, I paid $250 to $300 for it and Im glad I did. Mr. Logan advises me to put it in an acid-free mat, not adhered to backing, and to keep it away from sunlight. Non-glare glass would dull the colors and is not necessary, he adds. Mr. Logan got into appraising because he saw a need for it. I got into it to help people, he says. Id seen families whose parents had passed away and left them a houseful of stuff. Then some unscrupulous person would give them lowball figures (and buy their things for less than they were worth.) Dont ever hire an appraiser whos going to buy your (objects), he says. Thats why I got into it. (To help.) I still look at it that way.

Mr. Tebar also serves as music director of the Florida Grand Opera, artistic director of the Palm Beach Symphony and music director of the Dominican Republics biannual Santo Domingo Festival. When he was named to his position with the Florida Grand Opera in 2011, he became the first Spanish conductor appointed to an American opera company. Mr. Tebar began working as a pianist and assistant conductor in his hometown of Valencia in Spain when he was 15 years old. He went on to become assistant conductor with the Joven Orquesta Nacional de Espaa, while at the same time graduating with honors in piano and chamber music. Since his arrival in the U.S. in 2005, he has been part of the musical staff of Palm Beach Opera and Cincinnati Opera, producing more than 40 different operas, while maintaining a full schedule in Europe, the Caribbean and South America. He has served as a guest conductor for organizations including Italys Orchestra Teatro Regio di Torino and the Spoleto Festival Orchestra, Spains Festival de Opera de a Coruna, Germanys Kolner Philharmonie, the Netherlands Het Concertgebouw, Russias St. Petersburg Symphony and Orchestra de Rouen HauteNormandie, to name a few. He has conducted many internationally renowned artists, including tenor Ben Heppner, violinist Joshua Bell, soprano Maria Guleghina and cellist Gautier Capuon. In addition, he remains in collaboration with many of the worlds most famous vocal artists among them Montserrat Caball, Angela Gheorghiu, Roberto Alagna and Joseph Calleja, performing with them from Buenos Aires to Amsterdam, San Juan to Moscow. Orchestral conducting occupies a good part of his annual activities in his native Spain as well as the Netherlands. He will make his Vienna State Opera debut in Rossinis Il Barbiere di Siviglia in winter 2016. Mr. Tebar currently lives with his family in Miami. We are thrilled to have Maestro Tebars international experience, guiding and implementing our upcoming programming, says Jerry Goldberg, chairman of the board of directors for Opera Naples. As we become more firmly rooted in this community and grow in stature, it has become increasingly apparent to our board that the time has come for us to draw more extensively upon the great diversity of talent available worldwide. Were confident that this decision will invigorate our programming with fresh, innovative and creative performances, and facilitate bringing internationally recognized soloists to Naples. Opera Naples produces several works per season in a variety of styles, including classic grand opera, American opera, contemporary or lesserknown works and operetta.

Emily thinks the tale will end like all of her well-loved Disney movies, but she learns that not all stories have a happy ending. Sword fighting, dancing and a mix of Shakespeares language with todays vernacular will excite and enthrall even the youngest audience member. Performances are at 2 p.m. each day and also at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 13-14, in the FGCU TheatreLab.

ARTS COMMENTARYGuns, health care, tea bags and conversationTheatre Conspiracy has never shied away from controversy. The company seems to specialize in taking sacred cows and serving them up as hamburgers or steak or sometimes just tasty food for thought. Its most recent offering was Rich Orloffs play, Chatting with the Tea Party, offered in four performances as a staged reading. Mr. Orloff, a New York City-based playwright, saw how politically polarized the country has become. He was curious about the Tea Party and wondered, Who are these people? Why do they think the way they do? He realized that neither he nor his friends knew any Tea Partiers personally. So between Thanksgiving 2010 and Election Day 2012, Mr. Orloff traveled around the country, interviewing the movements local leaders at two dozen Tea Party meetings and events in various states. He genuinely wanted to learn who they are and what they believe. I wanted to make them real, he says. Chatting with the Tea Party is an edited version of those conversations, which he recorded. (The chats were edited out of necessity otherwise, the play would be more than 63 hours long.) From the press release, I initially thought Id be seeing a one-man show with Mr. Orloff doing monologues, a la Anna Deavere Smith. I was surprised to discover it was a multi-person play. Theatre Conspiracy presented it with seven actors. Jason Parrish of Florida Repertory Theatre portrayed Mr. Orloff, who is also the shows narrator. Christopher Brent, Stephanie Davis, J. Mitchell Haley, Katie Pankow, Louise Wigglesworth and Jim Yarnes portrayed various Tea Party leaders and unnamed liberals. Mr. Orloff calls Chatting with the Tea Party a documentary-style play and says nothing the interviewees say is made up. Were introduced to a mother who sees nothing wrong with cutting funding to her local schools, and a man whos growing his own vegetables and learning how to preserve them so he can live off the land if he needs to. To some, the play might feel like watching the Fox Cable channel for two hours, interspersed with snippets from CNN or MSNBC. The Tea Partiers talk about wanting to take back America and their desire for limited government, though when Mr. Orloff asks, no one is willing to give up Social Security or Medicare. Ultimately, he calls them idealists, Utopians who want a much better America. Though he does not agree with them, he sees them as patriots who love their country and are eager to get involved. He admires their willingness to take action, quoting one woman who says, You get off the couch. Many are conservative Christians, he notes. He ends the play with a very Christian question straight from the Gospels: Who is my neighbor? His conclusion seems to be that the Tea Party people are willing to help their own kind, but are not as charitable to strangers, outsiders, or anyone else deemed other. After the show, he said that in all his travels he only saw a few people of color involved in the Tea Party. And he didnt meet anyone who openly identified as gay. The thing that is heartwarming about Chatting with the Tea Party is that it shows that people from both sides of the political spectrum can sit down and have a conversation. And though Mr. Orloff tells of a friend who can now get healthcare even though he had a pre-existing condition, and also points out specific instances in which high-capacity magazine gun law bans would have helped save lives, he rarely gets into the nitty-gritty of how laws the Tea Party supports would affect people. Its not just beliefs, but how those beliefs, turned into law, would affect society, whether its class size in schools or salaries, safety, access to health care, non-discrimination or the right to marry. Mr. Orloff walks a balance in his play, treating everyone with respect and letting them have their say. (Though some self-identified Tea Party people seated near me mutter ed throughout the play and during the talkback, and felt that the playwright had a liberal bias.) But hes not afraid to skewer his liberal friends. The talkback with the cast and the playwright was lively, but also respectful. Audience members included both liberals and people from the local Tea Party. One complained that the mainstream media presents Tea Party people as loonies and rednecks. Another said he was upset with being labeled a racist when he wasnt. Chatting with the Tea Party has its moments of humor. But it also contains a lot of jargon and catch phrases, which tends to make people generic representatives of their political beliefs, rather than individuals. But then again, Mr. Orloff was being faithful in presenting everyones exact words. I wouldve liked to see more of the people behind the catch phrases. The play is not exactly an evening of entertainment, but it is successful in that it opens the door to discussion afterward. I dont know if it will change anyones mind. I suspect liberals might feel its too easy on the Tea Party, and that those within the Tea Party, like some who were sitting near me in the audience, will feel its too liberal. e p t w A t nancy STETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com : One-On-OneAlways.

Summer Specials O ering Daily Public Cruises Seabreeze Lunch, Dinner, Hors doeuvres, A ernoon and Sunset Sightseeing LATEST FILMSMaleficentIs it worth $10? NoLet us tell an old story anew, begins Disneys Maleficent, a cartoonish retelling of Sleeping Beauty from the titular horned villainess perspective. Theres plenty of flash and style, but little substance that sticks. The film plays like a Disney park attraction that wows you with visuals yet treats the story like an afterthought. The difference is that park attractions/rides last all of two minutes, while Maleficent is 97 minutes of Angelina Jolie looking for something to do. Ms. Jolies Maleficent starts as an innocent fairy (played as a girl by Isobelle Molloy) in charge of protecting her land. The neighboring humans dont dare enter her territory in fear of the creatures that lurk within the moors. Sometimes, however, children are too nave to know better, which is the case when farm boy Stefan (Michael Higgins) is caught stealing. The human fascinates Maleficent and the two become friends. As the years pass, Maleficent and Stefan grow closer and fall in love, but theyre separated as their kingdoms go to war. Then when Stefan (Sharlto Copley) betrays her, Maleficent is so spurned that she curses his newborn daughter Aurora to prick her finger on a spinning wheel by her 16th birthday, at which point Aurora will fall into a permanent sleep. Only true loves kiss can wake her if true love exists. Direct Robert Stromberg is making his feature film debut here, and his inexperience shows. He holds things together decently enough leading up to the curse, but theres a narrative lull in Linda Woolvertons (The Lion King) script as the years slowly drudge along leading to Auroras (Elle Fanning) climactic 16th birthday. This middle segment which is a little more than a half-hour but feels longer is pure dead weight, and with a third act full of head-scratching decisions, the film never recovers. Story shortcomings would be forgiven with stronger visuals, but there, too, the director falls short. The visual effects, including the creatures, flying, magic and three pixie fairies (Leslie Manville, Imelda Staunton and Juno Temple) all look like they belong on a Saturday morning cartoon. Worse, the 3D is too dark, and in some scenes you notice the demarcation between the live action set and visual effects added in post-production (the opening scene in which we see Maleficent from behind as she stares into the woods is a glaring example). With the story a failure and the visuals underwhelming, were left with Ms. Jolies performance, which is a trip. To say she chews scenery would not be accurate; its more like she swallows it whole. Note the glare with her eyes, the menace of her voice, the pure delight she exudes as her character breaks bad. Her defined cheekbones with white makeup and bright red lipstick, and how it contrasts with her intimidating black, horned costume, further accentuate Maleficents true menace. Maleficent is the epitome of a woman scorned, yet Ms. Jolie maintains her humanity with reluctant half-smiles and occasional good deeds. Shes not even that mean to her assistant Diaval (Sam Riley) when he offers unwelcome advice. Although the character is an evil fairy, she never loses her capacity for good. You cant blame Disney for wanting to put a new twist on a classic fairy tale, especially in an effort to show a new side to its most notoriously evil villain. Maleficent simply does not succeed at doing it. dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com 1) One of Angelina Jolies daughters with Brad Pitt, Vivienne, plays young Aurora in a scene in the woods in which Male cent tells her to go away. 2) True story: I once encountered Male cent at Disney World.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 FILM CAPSULESX-Men: Days of Future Past (Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen) Wolverine (Mr. Jackman) is sent to the past to stop Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from killing a scientist (Peter Dinklage). Strong story and visuals, but the 3D is unnecessary, and the finale has implications that dont suit the franchise well. Rated PG-13.Blended (Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, Kevin Nealon) Single parents Jim (Mr. Sandler) and Lauren (Ms. Barrymore) have a disastrous blind date and then unexpectedly bump into one another with their kids in tow while travelling in Africa. Some jokes fall flat, but it remains adorable to see Mr. Sandler and Ms. Barrymore together, and the film has a nice message. Rated PG-13.The Love Punch (Emma Thompson, Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Spall) Divorced couple Richard (Mr. Brosnan) and Kate (Ms. Thompson) travel to Paris to steal a diamond from the man who took advantage of Richard in a bad business deal. Mr. Brosnan and Ms. Thompson are great together. Its funny, and the storys a trip. Rated PG-13.Godzilla (Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen) Godzilla becomes the saving grace for mankind when two giant monsters start destroying the world. The story is predictable and the effects are mediocre, but the biggest sin is this: Theres not that much Godzilla in it. Rated PG-13.Million Dollar Arm (Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Suraj Sharma) A down-on-his-luck sports agent (Mr. Hamm) believes the next big baseball star could be playing cricket in India, so he creates a game show to find undiscovered talent. Right up there with The Rookie, Miracle and Remember the Titans, this is a solid sports drama with a good heart and strong message. Rated PG.Chef'(Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson) After being fired by his jerk boss (Dustin Hoffman) and pissing off a famous food critic (Oliver Platt), a talented chef (Mr. Favreau) opens a food truck in Miami and drives across the southern U.S. with his son (Emjay Anthony) and sous chef (John Leguizamo). Funny when it needs to be and poignant throughout, this film showcases Mr. Favreaus (Iron Man) skills as a writer/director/producer/actor in all the right ways. Rated R.Neighbors (Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne) New parents Mac (Mr. Rogen) and Kelly (Ms. Byrne) fight with the frat house (led by Mr. Efron) that moves in next door. The laughs are consistent, creative and hilarious. Rated R. Want results like these?

FLORIDA WRITERSA grand passion transcends time, but is rooted in place The Widows Walk by Robert Barclay. William Morrow. 320 pages. Trade paperback. $14.95.Since retiring from a career in business and industry-related consulting, the man with the pen name Robert Barclay has developed a remarkable second career as a romance novelist. The latest title from this Coral Springs resident follows the successes of If Wishes Were Horses and More Than Words Can Say. Antebellum culture, architecture, time travel and other paranormal occurrences combine to make The Widows Walk intriguing and heartwarming. When young Massachusetts architect Garrett Richmond decides to purchase and restore the 1830ish home called Seaside, he knows that the task will be enormous, given the sorry condition of the house due to neglect and vandalism. However, it has been a dream of Garretts to meet such a challenge and reside in such a splendid Antebellum home. In spite of the contrary advice of family and friends, he embarks on the journey. What he discovers is that Seaside is haunted but only for him. The cry of a womans voice, unheard by others, reveals the suffering of Seasides 150year resident, a beautiful young widow named Constance Elizabeth Canfield. Like a ghost, she is caught between two worlds: the world of 1840 New Bedford and the ongoing present. Constance has witnessed all the tenants of Seaside since her husband Adams ill-fated voyage on his whaling ship, but she has had no presence to them until Garrett. She has lived a solitary half-life for 17 decades. For Garrett, at first skeptical of a hoax of some kind, she proves to be very real and overwhelmingly attractive. Slowly, hesitantly, their passion grows and with it their sense of a shared destiny. Whenever they touch, its as if a cosmic energy bolt flows through them. They struggle to find out how to understand their unfathomable relationship, eventually turning to a woman learned in the ways of psychic and otherworldly phenomenon, Dr. Brooke Wentworth. She assures them that all of their difficulties have been a test of love and that there is an action they can take, though great risk is involved, that can possibly free Constance. However, there is a chance that Garrett will forfeit his freephil JASONpkjason@comcast.net BARCLAY 26811 South Bay Drive Bonita Springs, FL 34134 239.949.1210

The author ties present to past and both to a malleable sense of identity and corporality by creating scenes in which Constance briefly returns to the life that was severed so many decades ago. What she encounters back then gives clues to the future, but she returns disturbed and frightened. Such flashback experiences happen several times. Matters become even more complicated when Garrett is taken back to the time of Adams final voyage. Of course, for him, its not really undergoing a flashback, as he is not returning to 1840s New Bedford or is he? Hasnt his obsession with restoring Seaside, including its signature widows walk, been his way of living in the past? Mr. Barclay employs effective strategies and skills to invite his readers into his preposterous premise. One, as mentioned before, is having us vicariously experience Garretts gradual transition from doubter to believer. He is a man of scientific bent as well as esthetic sensibility. As Constance breaks down his resistance to the strangeness the seeming impossibility of her story, our resistance is swept away as well. In addition, because it is so clear that these two are soul mates, we cant help but want them to come together in every possible way. Mr. Barclays skills at description put us firmly in a place that we can accept as real. Once we believe in the reality of Seaside and its environs, once we find Garrett a credible figure, we are ready to allow the willing suspension of disbelief that enjoyment of such a novel requires. Effective minor characters Garretts parents, his business partner and his renovation contractor keep us anchored to the reality that is challenged by the what-ifs of The Widows Walk. The novel itself is supplemented by several post script features: a brief author biography, The Story Behind the Book, Reading Group Discussion Questions and brief synopses of Mr. Barclays two other novels.

NOW CONSIGNING FURNITURE! KOVEL: ANTIQUES Obscure movie marketing items a big hit among collectors BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELCollectors sometimes find an unusual go-with for their collection. Collectors buy a standard onesheet movie poster, 27 by 41 inches, or a three-sheet, 40 by 81 inches, or a half-sheet, 22 by 28 inches, or lobby cards that usually are 11 by 14 inches. Sometimes a full set of lobby cards seven scene cards and one title card is found. There also are cardboard window cards, autographs, promotional items, jewelry, T-shirts, toys and games, all related to a movie. A lucky find for movie buffs this year was a jigsaw puzzle made with a photograph of Susan Hayward (1917-1975), a movie star and leading lady from 1937 to 1972. While there are many movie-star paper dolls, there are very few jigsaw puzzles. Q : My grandmother was married in 1899 and received a curvy birch bedroom dresser and chest as a gift. Both pieces are mounted with a beveled mirror in a carved wooden frame. My mother wasnt fond of the furniture, but she kept it and now were using it because we can tell its quality is a lot better than anything else we own. The label on the back of each piece says Robert Mitchell Furniture Co., Cincinnati, Ohio. Please tell us about the manufacturer and the furnitures value. A: Robert Mitchell was an Irish immigrant who partnered with Frederick Rammelsberg to open a furniture-making business in Cincinnati in the 1830s or s. Mitchell & Rammelsberg incorporated in 1867. In 1881, after Rammelsberg had died, the corporate name was changed to Robert Mitchell Furniture Co. It remained in business until about 1940. Any Victorian-era furniture made by Mitchell & Rammelsberg or Robert Mitchell Furniture Co. is high-quality and prized by collectors. Q: My 85-year-old mother-in-law gave my wife and me a six-sided large glass Planters Peanuts jar she has had for years. She told us her aunt worked in a bar a long time ago and the jar was on the counter for patrons to reach in and grab peanuts. There are fired-on yellow Mr. Peanut images around the outside of the jar, which has its original glass lid with a peanut finial. Are these old jars collectible? A: Planters Peanuts have been around since 1906, and Mr. Peanut became the companys logo in 1916. Jars like yours have been made in many shapes and styles since then, but yours probably is the six-sided jar made in 1936. If your jar is in excellent condition, it could be worth $50 to $100. Advertising collectors love Mr. Peanut.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 C19 This jigsaw puzzle pictures young Susan Hayward, a movie star decades ago. She was born in 1917 and stopped making movies in about 1972. The puzzle was one of seven novelties that sold as a group for $250 at a Swann Galleries auction in New York in April 2014. Q: Im looking for information about my black amethyst vase. Can you help? A: Black amethyst glass looks black until its held to the light. Then it looks dark but not black. It has been made in many factories since 1860, so unless the piece has a makers mark, its impossible to tell who made it. Look for similar shapes online or in books about 19thand 20th-century glass. Q: I was given several Lladro figurines and would like to find out what theyre worth and the best way to sell them, if I choose to. A: Juan, Jose and Vicente Lladro started making Lladro porcelain in Almacera, Spain, in 1951. The company moved to Tabernes Blanques in 1958 and is still working. Figurines are made in both limited and unlimited editions, and a figurine may come in different colors and with different finishes. Most have a glossy glaze, some have a matte finish and some were made with Gres finish, a brightly-colored satiny finish introduced in 1970. Lladro figurines can be hard to sell. Price depends on condition, glaze and rarity. You can check online to see what they are currently selling for, but most unlimited edition figurines sell for $50 to $150. Tip: Pewter looks best when displayed against a blue background. Silver is most attractive against a red background. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Heidi T., via emailA: Your wait is almost over: True Blood returns to HBO for its seventh (and final) season at 9 p.m. Sunday, June 22 I spoke with series star Amelia Rose Blaire, who plays newly turned vampire (who just happens to be the late-Gov. Truman Burrells daughter) Willa Burrell, and she gave me some scoops on the hit supernatural series final season: Generally, I think fans are going to be really happy. The writers and everyone are doing a wonderful job. Everyone wants to make this the best ending to True Blood that they can possibly make. Everyone is putting in 110 percent, and it is going to be epic. She also told me a bit about how the cast is holding up during these last few months of shooting, knowing that the series is coming to an end: Were going to be shooting until June, maybe even July, so right now I dont have much of that its all going to be over soon feeling. But Im positive that as it comes closer, that its going to affect everyone, because most of the cast and most of the crew have been here since season one. Theyve been working together seven years, which is an incredible amount of time to spend with someone. Q: I read in Billboard last month that Journey and Steve Perry were not going to reunite, despite the rumors to the contrary. What can you tell me about that? Peter F., Tempe, Ariz.A: Neal Schon of Journey has indeed spoken out against the rumors of a Journey reunion with Steve Perry. In fact, the rock band is presently touring with current lead singer Arnel Pineda. However, last month, Steve Perry made a rare and unannounced appearance (he hasnt sung publicly since 1995) with the indie band the Eels at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minn., singing an Eels song with the band, as well as Journey classics Open Arms and Lovin, Touchin, Squeezin. He sounded absolutely fabulous, and I hope this is an indication that he is ready to step back into the spotlight, make a new album and go on tour.

Register at www.sceniccruises.com CONTRACT BRIDGEThe bread-and-butter handsBY STEVE BECKERComplicated conventions often lead to disastrous partnership misunderstandings, but every now and then they produce sensational results. For example, take this deal played in the match between Pakistan and Australia in the 1981 world championship. When Munir Ata-Ullah and Jani Fazli held the North-South cards for Pakistan, the bidding went as shown. The Pakistani pair were using a system called SAAPP (Stone-Age Acol with Pakistani Pre-empts). The opening three-club bid by Fazli was artificial and indicated one of seven different types of hands! The true nature of the hand would presumably be described later on by the three-club bidder. Ata-Ullah responded artificially with three hearts, aware that if Fazlis three-club bid was based on a long, solid suit, it could not be hearts. Fazli thereupon jumped to four spades, indicating a powerful eight-card spade suit, one ace and a void in an unspecified side suit! Ata-Ullahs five-club bid showed first-round control of that suit, and Fazlis five-diamond bid identified his void in diamonds. This was all North needed to know, and he jumped to six spades, closing the bidding. There was nothing to the play. Fazli ruffed the diamond lead, cashed the A-K of trumps and king of clubs, then led a heart, losing only the heart ace to score 1,430 points. It was a magnificent triumph for the SAAPP system. The same deal was played at four other tables, and at each of them the South player opened the bidding with four spades. This was followed by three passes at each table. Perhaps we would all do well to learn SAAPP ASAP!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 VINOHow to hold your own when blind wine tasting Need an excuse for a party during the long hot summer? Consider gathering a group of wine-loving friends together for a blind tasting. A blind tasting in which guests taste wines without knowing what they are drinking is an entertaining way to learn about new wines. It can help develop your senses and your ability to assess wine without preconceptions (if you knew it was a bottle of TwoBuck-Chuck, you probably would be less impressed than if it was Chateau Pompous Bordeaux 1961, for instance). From simple to elaborate, there are many ways to conduct a blind tasting. Deciding on the method depends on the sophistication of your guests palates. Wine author and educator Jerry Greenfield, aka The Wine Whisperer, enjoys blind tastings and recommends serving a selection of varietals (as opposed to blends). Give them a taste of four or five different reds and see if they can tell whether theyre cab, shiraz, zin, merlot, pinot, whatever, he says. Same for the whites. The simplest way to conduct a tasting is to give everyone a scorecard with the bottles listed (Wine A, Wine B, etc.) and let them guess what kind each one is. There can also be room for comments This one had lots of fruit or This one tastes like the cardboard box it was shipped in. The person who does best in identifying the wines is the winner. Its always nice to have a good bottle of wine as the prize. To make it a bit more challenging, besides the category of varietal, you can add region, country and/or vintage to the scorecard. Award one point for each correct answer. The person with the highest score is the winner. For a more experienced group, you can also have them score the wine by appearance, aroma, taste, body and finish. When you add up the scores, youll know which wine everyone liked best. Have scorecards ready and pass the bottles around, one at a time. Give everyone time to score and comment. At the end, reveal the blind selections one at a time and give everyone time to discuss their impressions. After that, add up the scores. Here are some tips to get you started: Pick a theme. This can be all reds, all whites, wines priced at less than $15 or from the southern hemisphere or California or whatever criteria you prefer. Decide if you will supply all the wines or if each guest will bring a selection. If everyone brings a bottle, it will be less costly for you; but you can stage a more intricate tasting, such as New World varietals versus Old World counterparts, if you supply all the bottles. Make sure that there is enough wine for everyone to have a small sample. A bottle can provide 10 to 12 small portions, depending on how much you pour. If you have 10 or fewer guests, a single bottle of each should be sufficient. With more people or if you want to ensure that everyone can have a second taste of something they like have two bottles on hand. Decide if you want the tasting to be single blind or double blind. Single blind is when everyone knows what is being sampled (that there is a cab, a zin and a merlot, for example), but they dont know the order in which they are being tasted. This method is easier for those who not accustomed to tasting and scoring wines. The double blind method means no one knows what is in any bottle (or, if everyone brings a bottle, they will only know what is in the bottle they provided). Glasses and dump buckets. A fresh glass for each wine is optimal, but it also works with each person having a single glass that can be emptied and rinsed between samples. Make sure you have easily accessible dump buckets on the table and some small glasses on hand for spit cups. Water and snacks. Supply pitchers or glasses of water for everyone, and some light food. Bread with a variety of cheeses is easy to serve and eat. Wrap the bottles with aluminum foil. This looks classy, and then you can number each bottle with a Sharpie. Provide scorecards. Use either a 20-point scale or a 100-point scale. There are many examples available online. I prefer a 20-point scale because it is simpler for most people. Dont forget to provide pens as well. Here are some wine suggestions that are good for tastings: Reds Merlot, cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, zinfandel and malbec. Whites Chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, riesling, pinot grigio and torrontes. Old World-New World tasting pairs Sancerre and sauvignon blanc; Bordeaux medoc and California cabernet sauvignon; Bordeaux St. Emilion and California merlot; white French Burgundy and California chardonnay; German riesling and Washington State Riesling; Italian primitivo and California zinfandel.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 5-11, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINEPatrics makes a comeback in fresh space with some new tricksThere was much gnashing of teeth and rending of garments when Chef Patric Achilles and partner Gary Teater shut the doors on their restaurant in Mission Square West some 18 months ago. They were looking for a new challenge and maybe a less demanding work schedule and decided they might find it at the Match/Point Cafe at the World Tennis Club. For whatever reason, they have moved on, landing in a cozy little diner just east along Pine Ridge Road from their old digs. This one has a classic diner look but with fresh new fixtures, the result of their hardly being used by the previous occupant, Pee Wees Diner, which operated in this spot for three months. So Mr. Achilles and Mr. Teater have returned to the neighborhood, and its clear that they havent lost their following. In just the time it took us to consume a very fine breakfast, multiple tables of regulars showed up, greeting the owners and staff like old friends. Mr. Teater even inquired about one couples dog, which had apparently departed since they last spoke. Clearly, these are owners who know their clientele well. There are but 35 seats inside and a couple more tables outside. The place was about half full during our visit, so Im not sure what it might feel like at capacity. Although the rooms dimensions are somewhat modest, the menu is not. Patrics serves breakfast and lunch and, because the chef is a devotee, it also offers a menu of paleo breakfast and lunch items. (For those who have been living in a cave and havent heard of it, the paleo diet is modeled on the dining habits of Paleolithic man who basically ate fish, grass-fed meat, eggs, vegetables and fruits, roots and nuts. It skips grains, dairy, refined sugars, potatoes and processed foods.) At Patrics, the paleo menu also offers gluten-free toast and sweet potato home fries in lieu of the standard white variety. Mr. Teater says that the diner has been getting a lot of business from fitness buffs who subscribe to the paleo diet and have a wealth of items from which to choose here, including omelets with jerk chicken, smoked salmon, a variety of meats or veggies, as well as steak and eggs, paleo pancakes (I have no idea what those are, but you likely do if you follow the diet), sandwiches served on gluten-free bread, quiche, salads and burgers. But for the rest of us, theres even more of a selection: breakfast burritos, all manner of omelets, benedicts, pancakes, the whimsically named s@#t-ona-shingle (otherwise known as chipped beef on toast) and homemade biscuits and gravy. Theres something for everyone. The Truckers Plate, for example, comes with a side of biscuits and gravy, corned beef hash, bacon, sausage or ham, two eggs and toast ($12.50), while the Heart Healthy Sandwich consists of grilled multi-grain bread with hummus, tomato, bean sprouts, eggs, onion, sunflower seeds, avocado and a side of fruit ($7.95). We were looking for something between saintly and seriously sinful and found it. My companion tucked into a delicious stuffed French toast ($7.50), thick slices of white toast loaded with creamy brie and topped with peaches. It came with syrup but needed not a thing to enhance the chewy bread, gooey cheese and just-sweet-enough-fruit on top. Our server was happy to bring my meat-shunning spouse a side of fresh fruit instead of the bacon or ham with which it normally comes. I ordered the pot roast skillet ($7.95), and our server presented it to me complete with an oven mitt beneath. The warm skillet was filled with home fries, a slab of tender pot roast and gravy, onions, two eggs over medium and cheddar cheese. A fresh biscuit on the side completed the meal. I was able to eat about half of this hearty feast, which was a delicious variation on steak/ham/ bacon and eggs. Theres also a chorizo skillet that includes black beans and jalapenos. Next time, perhaps. If youd rather have lunch, there are lots of salads, some pasta dishes, sandwiches and wraps, chicken wings and fried green tomatoes. We were too full for dessert, but took home an order of homemade cookies ($1.25) and a large raspberry muffin ($2.50) for later. The chocolate-chocolate chip cookies were chewy, rich and satisfying. The muffin was a little gummy, but that might have been the result of waiting until the following day to eat it. The service at Patrics is like having a doting aunt wait on you. Our server was patient, kind, humorous and helpful. She offered suggestions but wasnt pushy and was happy to accommodate us in any way we requested. We saw much the same thing happening at tables throughout the room as customers happily dug into large steaming plates of fresh food and left with smiles on their faces. Mr. Achilles and Mr. Teater are as good as they ever were. Its great to have them back where we can all have access to the great food and hospitality for which they have attracted a well-earned following. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Patrics>> Hours: 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. daily >> Reservations: No >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Breakfast, $3.95-$12.95; lunch. $6.50-$9.95 >> Beverages: Soft drinks served. >> Seating: At the counter, tables inside and a couple out front >> Specialties of the house: Breakfast and lunch >> Volume: Moderate >> Parking: Free lotRatings: Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: 2091 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 596-7708SuperbNoteworthyGoodFairPoor KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYPatrics has the look of a classic 1950s diner.
