COMMENTARY Election season closer: light and loveI took her home to my place Watching every move on her face. She said, Look, whats your game, Are you trying to put me in shame? I said, Slow! Dont go so fast! Dont you think that Love can last? She said, Love! Lord above, Now youre trying to trick me in love. Paul Rogers, from All Right NowI dont have enough money. I never have and I never will. I dont have enough hair. I never will again. I dont have any servants or maids or personal chefs or personal trainers, and I damn sure never will. I dont have new cars, I dont have a new house, I dont have new dogs and I dont have new children. I dont have a new wife, fortunately for me, and I dont have new ears or eyes, but I can still hear and see. I dont have new friends I have old friends. Younger friends, the new ones, are not foolish enough or patient enough to be friends with me. I applaud them for their wisdom and thank them for their forbearance. I dont have much wisdom or forbearance, either. I dont even have self-denial not the kind Oscar Wilde was thinking of when he said, The real tragedy of the poor is that they can afford nothing but self-denial. Beautiful sins, like beautiful things, are the privilege of the rich. I dont mess with self-denial anymore than I mess with cold showers, except when it comes to new cars, new houses, new dogs, new wives and astrophysics. Consequently, I dont have a scarcity of stimulating food, a paucity of plentiful drink, or a vacuity of very soft beds. And by the way, Oscar, all my sins are beautiful. Finally, I dont have more than one lantern in my wagon. But neither do they, any of them: the rich or the poor, the old or the young, the wise or the ignorant or Oscar Wilde. Not the Republicans or the Democrats, not the party that won or the party that lost, not the woman who heads the Gannett Corp. and made about $6.23 million last year, or the woman who delivers the printed paper to the bottom of my driveway (I have a driveway, which I count among lifes most valuable possessions) and made about $6.23 thousand doing it last year. We go along like this, you and I and them each wagon rattling down the road of life with its own little light shining out, with its own little lantern lit, with its own thousands or its own millions and we dont have what we dont have. And then one night the fuel in that lantern finally runs out. And so does the lantern. And then what we dont have is something or even anything. Instead, we have nothing at all. All of which all ows me to recall this election season closer, on behalf of all those whose didnt realize what they didnt have at the time, and whose lights have now gone out: We do have what we do have, and that boils down to one concept and two words, light and love. We have light. We have love. The words are synonymous. Thats especially true in Florida, where we have more than 300 sun days a year days in which the sun shines for at least six hours. Here, if light is love and love is light, we can righteously steal Virginias state slogan, crafted by an obviously drunk and misguided sloganeer, and reshape it this way: Florida is for lovers. The election season that concluded early this week, on Tuesday, Nov. 4, proves it. I have never seen so much love in one sunny place as I have seen here in the Sunshine State in the months and weeks leading up to Nov. 4. Isnt it true that people who love each other sometimes show it by caring enough to argue? And to disagree? And even to slash, slime and slander each other? Well hell yes. Love can be dirty and light can be gray and aint it all grand? Besides, as you know and as Oscar Wilde also said, You dont love someone for their looks, or their clothes or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear. And now, roughly half of all those lovers who voted for a candidate only they could hear sing, will have to learn to hear the song someone else is singing. You dont like Gov. Rick Scott? You dont like Gov. Charlie Crist? You dont like the other choices these Florida voters and lovers made at the polls? Thats all right. I may not either. But we can still love them. And as long as Im trying to trick you in love, let me mention one more thing we dont have, neither of us, none of us: the luxury of not embracing the peoples choice while we still have the chance. We do that, and love can last. Florida can last, too, even if our personal lanterns go out, which they will, tomorrow.So lets get over it we have 2015 peeking at us from just over the hill, after all and lets let our lanterns shine, today. Dont you think that love can last? t w p s t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

In her dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called the law purposely discriminatory, and everyone piled in behind her with denunciations of the Lone Star States blatant racism. For the left, voter ID is tantamount to a poll tax. If so, the nation is awash in neo-segregationist election rules. According to a recent Government Accountability Office report on voterID laws, 33 states now have them. A valid ID is a necessity of modern life, and requiring one to vote hardly seems an undue imposition. Especially if you are willing to give one out gratis. Of the 17 states that have strict requirements for a photo or government-issued ID, the GAO notes, 16 provide a free ID to eligible voters. The critics complain that people may not have the relevant underlying documents to get the free ID, and there is a cost to obtaining them. Well, yes. In Indiana, for instance, it costs $10 to obtain a birth certificate. In Arkansas, it costs $12. In North Dakota, $7. The GAO report focuses on the voter-ID states of Kansas and Tennessee, where voters whose eligibility to vote is in doubt may vote provisionally. Then they have a period after the election to establish their eligibility. How many voters are showing up to vote, only to be foiled by the ID requirement? According to the GAO, in Kansas in 2012, 1,115,281 ballots were cast. There were 38,865 provisional ballots, and of these, 838 were cast for voter-ID reasons. In Tennessee, 2,480,182 ballots were cast. There were 7,089 provisional ballots, and of these, 673 were cast for voter-ID reasons. In both states, about 30 percent of these voter-ID-related provisional ballots were ultimately accepted. That means in Kansas and Tennessee, altogether about 1,000 ballots werent counted (and perhaps many of them for good reason) out of roughly 3.5 million cast. There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, voter suppression! Where you come down on this issue depends on whether you think its reasonable to require the minimal effort to establish your identity when voting. The critics say that in-person voter fraud is extremely rare, although that is not an argument for leaving the system completely open to it. Is voting so important that it shouldnt be tethered to an ID requirement? It takes an ID to buy a gun, a constitutional right. It takes an ID to get a marriage license or check into a hotel. Voting is inevitably going to entail, even in the most latitudinarian system, some effort. You have to, at least most of the time, go to the polling place. You have to fill out the ballot correctly. You might have to deposit it in a box. Not all people will go to the trouble to do this, or to do it properly, which doesnt mean they are disenfranchised. The irony is that unhinged complaints about voter ID are, in this supposedly troubling new era of the poll tax, a turnout tool. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The Republicans profane attack on the sacred right to vote There is a database housed in Arkansas with your name in it ... that is, if you live in one of the 28 states participating in the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program. Its one of the growing components of an aggressive drive across the U.S. by Republicans to stop many Americans from voting. Early voting has already begun in many states in the 2014 U.S. midterm elections. Control of the U.S. Senate hangs in the balance, as do many crucial governorships, congressional races and ballot initiatives. One question looming over this election is just how significant will be the impact of the wholesale, organized disenfranchisement of eligible voters. I spoke with Dolores Internicola in Fort Lauderdale, ground zero for the voter-purge efforts of embattled Republican Gov. Rick Scott. She lost her husband, Bill, recently. He was in the news in 2012, when, at the age of 91, Bill received an official notice in the mail that his citizenship was in question, and he would have to prove it or be kicked off the voter rolls. As a World War II veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge, the native New Yorker was upset to hear that he couldnt participate in the vote that he helped defend against Nazi Germany. It was terrible, his widow recalled. Bill did get to vote in the 2012 elections, but millions are now threatened with similar, arbitrary disenfranchisement this year. Investigative journalist Greg Palast, along with documentary filmmaker Richard Rowley, crisscrossed the country, documenting the impact of the Crosscheck Program. His critical investigative reporting of the now-legendary electoral debacle in Florida in 2000 helped expose how Floridas then-Secretary of State Katherine Harris oversaw massive, erroneous voter purges there, giving the presidency to George W. Bush in what remains the most controversial presidential election in U.S. history. Now, its a decade and a half later, and Im hearing the cry of voter fraud. Theres a million people committing voter fraud. Is there really this big crime wave? Palast asks in his two-part special on alleged double voting produced for Al-Jazeera America. The Crosscheck system described by Palast started with Kansas Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach. It takes electronic records of voters from participating states, collects them in a centralized database in Arkansas and attempts to match individual voters who might have voted in more than one state. This double voting was responsible, according to conservative commentator Dick Morris, for 1 million fraudulent votes for Barack Obama, allowing him to steal the election in 2012. Yet, as Palast reports, there has not been a single successful prosecution of electoral fraud as a result of the Crosscheck system. Rather, Crosscheck has led to massive purges of eligible voters from the rolls, often based on sloppy data. Purging of the voter rolls is just one way that Republicans are working to limit the vote. Key court decisions in recent weeks have all but guaranteed that tens of thousands of voters will be denied access to their right to vote. Texas just passed a highly restrictive photo-identification law. The U.S. Supreme Court decided not to rule on the substance of it until after the election in order to avoid confusion. In her dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote, The greatest threat to public confidence in elections in this case is the prospect of enforcing a purposefully discriminatory law, one that likely imposes an unconstitutional poll tax and risks denying the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of eligible voters. Restrictive voter identification and other obstructions have been allowed to move forward as well in Wisconsin and North Carolina. It has been long acknowledged that photo-ID requirements disproportionately impact poor people and people of color, two groups that tend to vote for the Democratic Party. In the fall of 1980, Paul Weyrich, a conservative activist who went on to found such right-wing institutions as The Heritage Foundation, the Moral Majority and the American Legislative Exchange Council, addressed a conference in Dallas. I dont want everybody to vote, he said. Elections are not won by a majority of people, they never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down. Weyrichs wish back in 1980 has become a grim reality in 2014. The right to vote is sacred, and its protection is the responsibility of us all. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

For every rookie whos called up to a major league team, hundreds of hard-working, aspiring players languish in the minor leagues. Not only does a player have to excel, but he has to fill a need for the team with whom hes signed. Most retire from the game never making it to the show. After 14 years of playing professional baseball, Naples own Chris Resop hung up his spikes in mid-season this year to pursue a career in real estate and to serve the needs of his family. As a relief pitcher over portions of eight major league seasons, Chris appeared in 235 games, with a 10-12 won-lost record. He struck out 204 big-league hitters, walked 113 and had a 4.62 earned-run average. Chris made his biggest impact with the Pittsburgh Pirates, who signed him in 2010. He became a valued set-up reliever and signed a guaranteed contract, pitching 142 innings over the next two seasons. He was recognized in baseball not only for his competence, but also for his character and his charitable efforts in support of local childrens hospitals. Chris was born in Naples and dreamed of playing in the major leagues from the day he picked up a baseball glove at age 5 or 6. He graduated from Barron Collier High School in 2001, the year the Naples Daily News named him Player of the Year. He had committed to the University of Miami, but was drafted in the fourth round of the major league draft by the Miami Marlins. He played for the Marlins, the California Angels and the Atlanta Braves before signing with the Pirates. After a brief stint with the Oakland Athletics, he ended his career in the Boston Red Sox minor league system. Having won the World Series in 2013, the Red Sox saw Chris as insurance for their bullpen in 2014, but when the team imploded, they began to look to the future with their younger assets. Chris decided it was time to turn the page professionally in his life. About the end of his baseball career he says, I loved every second that I was able to play the game. But I dont miss the crazy schedules and travel schedules. With his wife opening her own business (Blo, a franchise blow-dry bar at the Vanderbilt Shoppes in Naples), he wanted to be available to help her. And he wanted to be here for his children son Colton, 5, and daughter Kenna, 2 as they grow up. For Chris, the transition to a career in real estate was a natural. Real estate has been in my family for more than 60 years, he says. My grandfather helped develop St. Petersburg, and the company up there is still being run my uncles. Chris is now helping people buy and sell their homes in Naples and is working with a development group here. Playing professional baseball didnt come easily by any means, he says. It took years of discipline, preparation and unwavering determination. That same focus and work ethic serves me well in my new career in real estate. bobHARDEN email@example.com As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYor an unreal marriage; a job that no longer serves as a vocation; a religion; or even the place and manner in which we do something that ultimately we may continue doing elsewhere. As our readers approach the endof-year holiday tunnel a tunnel in which the eternal debate over quitting becomes more prominent as the New Year arrives Florida Weekly offers an ahead-of-the-game reflection on quitting. Here are the voices of both men and women, sportsmen, writers, business professionals, smokers and drinkers, and therapists who help their patients wrestle with the value of a quit or a non-quit. All of them have faced the old debate about quitting at one time or another. With few exceptions, such as smoking, says Daniel Goldman, a Ph.D.-level psychologist at the Peace River Psychology Center, quitting is thought of as a failure. I suspect the stigma of quitting is especially prominent in American culture. Americans must contend with the one-two punch of the so-called Protestant work ethic and with the competitiveness inherent in capitalism. Not only that, says Dr. Scott Haltzman, but sometimes the notion that simply trying harder is the righteous way to success or a cure becomes detrimental to health. A psychiatrist at the David Lawrence Center in Naples, Dr. Scott Haltzman is the author of several books about marriage. When we compare American values to other cultures, we see here the operating belief that if you want something hard enough you can work at it and get it. That may have negative consequences; it may prevent people from getting treatment for depression, for example, because they think that if they just work harder, they can cure themselves. Ironically, they wouldnt say, If I have poor vision I dont need glasses. I just have to work harder to see. So theyre coached by the culture not only to keep marching forward, but the message is that your ability to bounce back is tied only to your character. On the other hand, says Dr. Haltzman, character may also play a role in some quits. The disease model of addiction has preached for quite some time that addiction has little to do with willpower, that there may be a biological tendency toward an addiction, with behavioral approaches that need to be undertaken. That being said, there have been a number of studies that did suggest that willpower does also play a role in addiction, or breaking it. I think the role of willpower has been underplayed, as the model of addiction has shifted more toward a medical or behavioral model. We know that, because the more motivated somebody is and the more they think they have to lose, the more willpower might have a significant impact on their ability to quit. Doctors brought into treatment for addictions, for example, have a higher rate of success in quitting in part because they know they have a lot to lose. One of the most celebrated and successful football coaches ever to play and coach the game on both the college level and the professional level, Palm Beach County resident Howard Schnellenberger, is a realist about quitting. Coach Schnellenberger, who retired from his last coaching job at Florida Atlantic University three years ago, was born and raised in the culture of never-quit. From his days as a college player at the University of Kentucky, to his coaching jobs with Paul Bear Bryant at the University of Alabama where he famously recruited Joe Namath, to his days as an assistant coach for Don Shula and the Miami Dolphins, to other and a total of 11 football coaching jobs, Coach Schnellenberger, now 80, has had a lot of time to reflect on the nature of quitting. All quitting is not the same, he notes. Its different for every individual. There are some good reasons to quit, some bad, and some knee jerk reactions. I have two of the extremes. The knee-jerk reaction was at Oklahoma (where he served as head coach for a brief and unsuccessful period in the 1990s, bracketed by hugely successful coaching jobs of a decade at the University of Louisville and 14 years at FAU). At Oklahoma, I tried to get out of a very unpleasant situation as quickly as I could, and do it in a way that would be less painful both to the university and to me. And here (at FAU, where he still serves as an Ambassador at Large), the retirement I had in 2011 was a wellthought-out conclusion to a 55-year vocation. It was a seamless and mostly painless way of retiring, and yet staying involved. And now Coach Schnellenberger has a new book that already sold 25,000 copies of its first printing, looking back at his career: Passing the Torch: Building Winning Football Programs. With a Dose of Swagger Along the Way. Others have or are wrestling with the quitting dilemma too, of course. And not just people, but American society. Two of the most famous contemporary singers the late Pete Seeger, who died in January at 94, and the now-touring Bob Seger, 69 make that clear. In the 1960s, folk singer Pete Seeger sang of being waist deep in the big muddy and the big fool said to push on, recalls psychologist Dan Goldman. He was alluding to the growing belief that the United States could not win the war in Vietnam, and should cut its losses and send its troops home, even if doing so was, in effect, quitting. Seeger was describing a cognitive bias that economists call the sunk cost fallacy, and psychologists often call escalation of commitment. You may know it as throwing good money after bad. Bob Seger, meanwhile, told reporters recently that his current tour and his new album, Ride Out, may well be his last, in both cases. The deciding factor for whether I leave or not is my voice, whether it holds up. I want to be graceful about it. I dont want to overstay my welcome. That was a dilemma faced by the great operatic soprano, Renata Scotto, an Italian who spent the second half of the 20th century dazzling audiences, including those in New York, where she she sang for 20 years as a diva at the Metropolitan Opera Guild. Ms. Scotto now directs operas occasionally at Florida Grand Opera in Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Although she did not respond to an interview request, she told the journal Capital New York.com that the day she retired, she quit singing completely even in the shower. She had silenced her voice forever, and without much sentiment, allowing only one picture of herself to remain in her home. Nor does she keep so much as a piano in her home, like most retired opera singers. You can ask a thousand people about the kind of person I am, she said. I would never have a moment where I said, Ohhh, I cant sing anymore. Its too bad because I could do it better than so-and-so. Im happy the way I am, and so interested in so many things. Perhaps the English-born American poet and journalist, Edgar Guest, summed up best what those have who manage to quit something that needs quitting achieve. Known for his sweetly sentimental views of American life presented in his weekly rhymes for the Detroit Free Press, syndicated in 300 newspapers a century ago or so, he wrote this about quitting in the last stanza of one of those poems: Its bully sport and its open fight; It will keep you busy both day and night; For the toughest kind of game youll find Is to make your body obey your mind. And you never will know what is meant by grit Unless theres something youve tried to quit.Quitting smokingLeah Griffith, a Charlotte Countybased writer and long-time social worker, began smoking cigarettes at the age of 10. Now at 56, she is nicotine free. This is her story. I grew up in a family with three sisters and a stepbrother and everybody smoked. Mom smoked. Grandma was a smoker, but she had quit. By the time I was 10 Id take drags off the ashtray, and spend my money on cigarettes rather than Hershey bars. I was one of the few kids in grammar school who smoked in the restrooms. The only thing Ive ever been addicted to is nicotine. So I continued to smoke my whole life. And then my mother, who was 67 and had been smoking since she was 14, got lung cancer. It metastasized and went to her brain. She only had a few months by the time she was diagnosed. Its a pretty common thing for lung cancer that some people somehow think you deserve it. Theres not the same compassion. Theres a little bit of shame on you in it. So mom never got far enough to see her grandchildren graduate from school. I took care of her during that process and I was honored to do it. But it scared me to death. I was 41, I had two children, and all I could think of was, I have kids, I didnt want them to go through this. So I stopped and I started chewing Nicorette gum. So heres the deal with me: Im a total nicotine junkie. I go to the gum and before I know it Im hooked. I can chew it in church or at work. I can drive and chew it. Im a happy camper. I started with four milligrams of nicotine and cut down to two. And it was so much cheaper. But youre still addicted to nicotine, and I was angry at nicotine and at myself. It had killed my mother. I wanted to be nicotine free, and it was really difficult to go through. I chewed the gum from 1998 until 2013, and finally just stopped. Theres no baby steps. You smoke half your life and then you chew the gum for years, and what are you gonna do go to the patch? Try vaping? For me it wasnt an option because it still has nicotine. So these are my thoughts. You have to be realistic and say, This is what I am battling. Im battling with the chemical nicotine. When I quit there was still a fondness of memory: To this day I smell it and like it because it reminds me of my mother, of family times, of all of us laughing and joking and relaxed. Its hard to be a certain age and realize, my parents were dysfunctional. In the end, when you get really scared, its scared straight. Your love for yourself and your family is stronger than it. Its been a long road, but it was my road. From Leah Griffiths novel, C osettes Tribe, available at major booksellers online and at Copperfish Books in Punta Gorda:I spotted my house at the top of the hill, watching it get bigger and bigger as I walked towards it. I didnt feel like going home. Id stay away forever if I had somewhere else to go and I could take Ma and my sisters with me. I ducked between two buildings to smoke a cig and plopped my butt down on the cold cement walkway. Lighting up, I daydreamed about running away and stared into the red-hot cigarette head. I could see a smiling devils face looking back at me. I flicked the face away and took another long drag; it went deep into my lungs, and came out light, like half the smoke stayed in there, filling up all the empty spaces inside of me. Its a bad habit, I said out loud, to nobody but me.Quitting a jobTom Dubocq, now a private investigator in Palm Beach County, quit a decades-long career as an awardwinning reporter for some of Floridas best newspapers, including the Miami Herald and The Palm Beach Post, and worked his investigative skills into a new career. This is his story: When you go into a room, and you see a bunch of people, and all their lips are moving as they stare at their computer screen, and you wonder what theyre doing well, theyre sounding out what its going to sound like. They may be frantic, they may be on a deadline, but theyre making words work When I walked into The Palm Beach Post, you could smell the ink and the coffee the printing presses were right there in the back. I loved that. I just really got into it. And when (my) public corruption stories came out (Mr. Dubocq wrote stories about corrupt commissioners and officials that led to jail sentences, among other results), they sold 10,000 more papers. When the buyout came (in 2009 at The Palm Beach Post), I had to think, Im getting older (he was 57), Im never going to make this kind of money again in this business. I have no regrets about quitting it, except I do miss those nights, and you finally put the finishing touches on this story, and youre like, Yeah. The editor will like this. Its gonna cruise through the lawyer cause Ive got all the documentation Reporters are really just insecure overachievers, which is what the managers depend on. If they applied the QUITFrom page 1GRIFFITH With few exceptions, such as smoking, quitting is thought of as a failure. I suspect the stigma of quitting is especially prominent in American culture. Americans must contend with the one-two punch of the so-called Protestant work ethic and with the competitiveness inherent in capitalism.

Here he offers the case against quitting a marriage (when abuse is not part of the equation, he says). Theres an old cultural standard that its a bad thing to quit, but the prevailing culture is, if its not going well then you should leave. If your partners not meeting your needs, or youve grown apart, the idea is to leave in counter to what used to be a stigma about divorce. From that point of few, one of the things I deal with is that people have an idealized notion of what marriage and healthy committed relationships should look like. And A, they have an idealized notion as a consequence of Hollywood and Walt Disney, or a consequence of the fact that because marriage has been on the decline, there are not a whole lot of models of long successful marriages. But B, the second and more universal part is that we live in a culture in which were told we deserve the very best all the time. If the car youre driving doesnt have a rearview camera, you should just sell the thing and get another one. Or if the doctor you see makes you wait in the waiting room for 15 minutes, find another doctor. Were constantly believing there is something better out there for us. That convinces people to believe that I deserve better for myself, and if a marriage is going badly to quit marriage. But the divorce rate in second marriages is higher than in first marriages. So divorce doesnt necessarily define the quality of a marriage; it may differentiate between people who are willing to quit and people who arent. And its always worth mentioning that if theres domestic violence, or substance abuse or infidelity, its may not be (desirable) to stay in the marriage. One of the best ways of figuring out what to do in any life decision is to get input from other people. The problem is, when we look for those in a similar marriage, we may look to people who have chosen divorce. So were biased toward that as a solution. But if you look at people in long-term committed relationships, you might get more invaluable information about how to make a marriage work. Often youll hear people in my line of work say, You should see a therapist. But when it comes to marriage, therapy can be destructive, too. Most therapists are geared toward the individuals happiness, and they minimize the impact of marriage on somebodys happiness. I cant tell you all the people Ive treated who went to a therapist who, in their need, gave them the name of a divorce lawyer. So, start with someone who supports marriage, and who is a marriage friendly therapist Someone who understands the potential benefits. Studies show that people who are married are on average happier, wealthier, and healthier. They live longer.Quitting footballCoach Howard Schnellenberger started the football program at Florida Atlantic University beginning in 1998 and quickly built it into a Division I team with two bowl appearances and a new stadium, after a storied career before that, when he coached with Paul Bear Bryant at the University of Alabama when it won three national championships, and recruited Joe Namath. He led Miami University to a National Championship, and served as assistant coach for Don Shula when the team went undefeated and won the Super Bowl in 1972, before later coaching the Baltimore Colts and then leading the University of Louisville to two bowl games. He retired from the gridiron in 2011. This is his story. When I quit Oklahoma (in 1995), retirement was only half the truth, and the only thing I could think of doing was starting a bonds brokerage, because I had a commerce degree from college, the University of Kentucky that was the general degree, the easiest one you could get. I studied almost a year, Id had no experience, I didnt know a thing about it. In order to pass the test I had to memorize everything. Thats what got me to Boca Raton. And it was a knee-jerk reaction, quitting football that way. Then FAU contacted me and asked me to be a consultant in building up their failed football program and hire a coach. I hired myself. When I quit 14 years later in 2011, it was a well-thought-out process. Organized and seamless. My contract ran out after the stadium was built and all the things I promised and were necessary for a new group to come in and take it to a national championship were done. And I had to do some arithmetic. I was creeping into my 78th year and the probability of my lifespan extending a long ways was not high. The fact that my wife, Beverlee, and I had only spent about three weekends a year out of 52 together in the last 55 years thats what coaches get, three out of 52 influenced my decision. And I had a great blueprint in what not to do, in Bobby Bowden at FSU. When he announced his retirement, the crisis and crucifixion they had up there it was bad, like a bad divorce. Its taken them three years to talk to each other and have a reunion.Quitting versus failing Psychologist Dan Goldman at the Peace River Psychology Center in Charlotte County offers these reflections on quitting both personal and professional: Some of the most skilled quitters are professional poker players. In poker, depending on the variation being played, there are often four to five rounds of betting. A player who bets the first few rounds but fails to get better cards can easily feel potcommitted; in other words, he has already bet so much that he continues to irrationally bet on a bad hand on the rapidly diminishing chance that he can still win. The smart bettor, on the other hand, folds and lives to play another hand. I can remember investing in a tech stock during the so-called dot-com bubble in the late 1990s. Before long, the $10 stock was worth more than $30, and I felt pretty smart. Then, in the early 2000s, the bubble burst. As I waited patiently for the market to recover, the stock crept below the $10 I paid for it. Then below $5. Then below $1. The company was clearly a sinking ship. Rationally, I should have sold at $10 or $5 or even $1 and made a little money back. But I was all-in, pot-committed; I just couldnt quit. In the end, my investment was worth nothing at all. Quitting can be scary because if we stop going after whatever we are pursuing, then what are we left with? Youve probably heard the saying, better the devil you know. A person may be waist deep in a losing proposition, but if he quits, then he has to try something else, and thats the devil he doesnt know. Sometimes quitting takes courage, even faith. Here are some tips for quitting like a winner: Check in with your own, personal values. Does continuing this particular undertaking match your values? If not, persevering is bound to lead to future regret. Think about your goals. In fact, this is something I bring up in therapy often. It is rare that a patient knows when to quit his or her therapy sessions with me. To figure this out, we revisit the goals we set out to accomplish in the beginning of therapy, as well as any goals that were added along the way. If these goals have been satisfactorily met, then it is probably time to terminate treatment. If not, reset our bearings and push on. Make a public commitment to quit. Announce it to friends, and they can help keep you accountable to your decision to give up something that isnt working for you anymore. And keep this in mind: Quitting isnt the same thing as failing. Winning poker players quit repeatedly; its the losing players who never fold. Quitting yourselfWayne Daltry, is a retired planner and Smart Growth director in Lee County, a graduate of The Citadel, a Vietnam veteran and a philanthropist and community volunteer. This is his story. The hardest thing I ever had to quit was solipsism (the belief that there is no knowledge beyond ones own mind). Recognizing that other folks have opinions, needs, wants, that deserve the attention that selfabsorbed folks have to drag themselves off their island to address. S&G had a song, I Am A Rock, that was popular among the nerdy (among which I could be counted), forming the armor by which high school could be endured. After awhile most of us outgrew it, but it is really a hard thing to quit. If you dont, you find yourself perched in a bell tower in a university with the high-powered rifle of choice. Or running a think tank by which justification of the inhumanity of those with opposing views can be made, with recommendations for permanent solutions. Mind you, there are those who believe I have yet to quit HALTZMAN SCHNELLENBERGER
A10 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Funding the revolutionJulian Assange, the WikiLeaks publisher of state secrets who remains holed up in the embassy of Ecuador in London, has signed on with an Icelandic licensing agent to sell Assange-branded high-end clothing, shoes and various household goods in India and much of Europe, and is negotiating to put his logo on apparel in Japan and the U.S. The agent told The New York Times in October that WikiLeaks and Assange can be as big as Coca-Cola. A 46-page book sets out licensing standards (e.g., no tacky slogans, such as We Steal Secrets) and includes the one approved Assange portrait (an idealized line drawing of him gazing soulfully into what is presumably a better future, wrote the Times). Things you thought couldnt happen A Practical Use for Trigonometry: When a stampede killed pigs and induced sows abortions on a farm near York, England, two years ago, the operator of a noisy hot-air balloon denied responsibility, referring to a court order keeping balloons 500 meters away. Using GPS coordinates and the location of dead pigs, a mathematics professor at York University (employing trigonometry, he said) proved that the balloon could not have been more than 300 meters away. After the professor showed his work on the problem, the balloons insurer upped the settlement to almost four times its initial offer. Lucky Dog Retreat Rescue in Indianapolis reported in October that, even after many heroic saves, they had never heard of a dog like Adam, who is apparently allergic to humans. Following a blood test to determine why he remained so sickly despite therapies, a doctor reported that Adam is allergic to human dander, and researchers told WRTV that a special serum was being prepared. Things you thought would happenBritains The Guardian reported in October that repairing the fashion holes in earlobes is one of the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the U.K., as millennial generation radicals tire of their to -inch, see-through lobes. Doctors charge up to $3,000 to remove the entire area around the hole (originally created by stretching the tissue) and connect the healthy parts back so they fuse together. (A Hawaiian man, not currently a patient, supposedly has the largest ear hole, nearly 4 inches in diameter.)Latest religious messages Ernest Angley, 93, is the latest televangelist to see his empire challenged following his July denial (from the pulpit of his Grace Cathedral in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio) that he is homosexual and that he inappropriately touched some parishioners, as they have claimed. However, Mr. Angley freely revealed an intense interest in vasectomies and said he had long encouraged his flock not to bring offspring into this troubled world. Of young men, he said, Sure, Id have them uncover themselves (during vasectomy counseling), but I did not handle them at all A once-prominent insider said the prophet doesnt want people to have children because it would take their time and money away from (the church). He Works in Strange Ways: (1) A 34-year-old mother of two, walking in Chicago, was killed in September when a stone gargoyle fell from the historic Second Presbyterian Church and hit her on the head. (2) Two women survived their cars being crushed by a 100-pound boulder as they drove on a parkway in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, in September, and credited the Lord. God was with the both of us, one said. (According to authorities, the boulder came loose from a cliff after recent heavy rains.) Owen Reese, 22, was arrested in October in Sparta, Wis., for reckless endangerment when he answered a knock on his door from fundraising Cub Scouts by swinging a sword wildly. Reese told police that he always answers the door with his sword to protect himself against religious people.Compelling explanations Plausible: (1) George Byrd IV was charged in September in Middletown, Pa., with shooting a gun into an occupied structure when he fired a round that accidentally broke a neighbors window. Byrd told police that he fired because it was the only way he knew to unload the gun. (2) Lisa Roche, 41, was arrested in Jackson County, Mississippi, in October allegedly burglarizing students cars at East Central High School. She told police she was only searching out members of ISIS. Too Stupid: When UK newspaper executive Rebekah Brooks was arrested in 2011 in the notorious News of the World phone-hacking case, so was her husband. Charles Brooks was ultimately acquitted after convincing a jury that he is too stupid to have been part of such a complicated case. However, in October 2014, after Mr. Brooks petitioned under British acquittal rules to have his legal fees reimbursed, Judge John Saunders turned him down citing Mr. Brooks admitted stupidity in causing prosecutors to suspect him in the first place. (As Rebekah was being arrested, Charles aroused suspicion by clumsily trying to hide his pornography collection in a parking garage.)Least-competent criminalsLack of Foresight: (1) Jonathan Warrenfeltz, 24, and a buddy were charged with robbing five sunbathers in Dania Beach at gunpoint in October. Police quickly picked up the two based on a lookout for the only man around with the word Misunderstood tattooed in large letters across his forehead (as Warrenfeltz had). (2) Brandon Aaron, 27, charged with statutory rape of a 15-year-old girl in Panama, Okla., in October, initially denied having sex, but changed his story when the girl remembered that her attacker had the name of an ex-girlfriend tattooed on his penis (as Aaron had).

His Mind is Our Concern.DavidLawrenceCenter.org NAPLES 239-455-8500 IMMOKALEE 239-657-4434 FOR MENTAL WELLNESS Ron is among one in four in Collier County who suffer from a mental illness. One in ten of us will experience some form of substance abuse. When a family member, friend or coworker battles a mental health or substance abuse problem, we suffer with them. Thankfully, David Lawrence Center is here for our community. A not-for-prot organization founded and still governed by community leaders, the David Lawrence Center is the behavioral health component of our communitys healthcare network. A true local resource, it relies on donations, fees and grants to invest in the health, safety and wellbeing of our community. When you or someone you love needs help, call on the highly compassionate, committed and competent professionals of the David Lawrence Center to inspire you to move beyond the crisis towards life-changing wellness. Despite being a good student, Ron developed an intense fear of school and refused to go. Depressed and directionless, he abused alcohol and bounced between jobs, homes and towns. By the time he was 23, he had experienced the desperation of homelessness more than once, and had been in several Crisis Units. He was nally diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but without a job or housing, he had no plans. Then he made his way to DLC. DLC referred him to a shelter and into the Project for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness Program. They helped Ron enroll at FGCU for a degree in software engineering and secured nancial aid and campus housing. In just eight months, Ron is stable, sober and armed with the skills he needs to manage his illness. He now has a support system and plans for a bright future.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 A19 Marco regatta sets sail Nov. 15-16Marco Island residents and visitors will be treated to a colorful sight in the Gulf of Mexico directly off the islands shoreline when the Marco Island Yacht Club hosts its annual fall regatta Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 15-16. Races will start around 10:30 a.m. and conclude around 3:30 p.m. each day. A series of courses will be established by the race committee based on existing wind and sea conditions, with mark points identified by large, red inflated buoys accompanied by officials on mark boats. If wind conditions are as anticipated, boats with spinnaker sails (the large balloon sails of different colors) will hoist their spinnakers as they round the mark closest to the beach. The Marco Island Marriott welcomes locals to enjoy the view from the beach in front of the hotel. Car parking for the day will be $5, and a beach barbecue (cash only) will be available. Marco Island Yacht Club members will deliver a playby-play narrative at various times throughout both race days. The club is holding a silent auction as part of the regatta, with proceeds to benefit the Marco Island Community Sailing Center youth sailing program. Up for bid are numerous gift certificates for dinner, golf outings, etc., at local businesses. Bids can be placed at Mackle Park from MondayFriday, Nov. 10-14; bid cards move to the yacht club for the regatta weekend. The winning bids will be announced during Sunday evenings awards dinners. The Marco Island Community Sailing Center youth program began 12 years ago and has grown to provide instruction to more than 100 youth every summer, from beginners to advanced sailors, on the beach between the yacht club and the Jolley Bridge. While lesson fees partially fund the program, community donations are also necessary to pay for boat and sail repairs and replacements, training materials and scholarships. The center hopes to add a lift for coach boats, acquire additional Laser sailboats for advanced sailors, expand its curriculum to include sailing instruction for all ages and develop a high school sailing team. The Marco Island Yacht Club hosts the fall regatta with support from the Marco Island Parks and Recreation Department and the Marco Island Marina Association. Cochairs this year are club members Lois Dixon and Chuck Downton. For more information, contact Mr. Downton by calling (513) 205-4608 or emailing mdownton@ aol.com.

BY KAREN ROLLINSSpecial to Florida WeeklyAs the saying goes, life should not be measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away. But if today is the day you will take your last breath, how do you make the best of it? Would you be in a cottage on a beach overlooking the ocean, or a cabin tucked in the woods or mountains? Would you be in your own home, in your own bed? Who would be with you? Your friends, your children, your grandchildren? Or maybe you would just want to be wrapped in your lovers arms. How would you hope to feel? Peaceful, loved? I venture to guess you would not hope to be in a hospital or connected to machines, IVs, feeding tubes or ventilators. And Im sure you would not want to be filled with worries, in pain and surrounded by strangers and confusion. So how do you have a better last day? Accept help from hospice. And dont wait for your last day to seek support. Hospice is specialized care that can make more meaningful moments happen for those facing end-of-life challenges. Hospice is designed to help patients and families focus on living. If you or someone you love is facing a serious illness, dont spend another day worrying if now is the right time, or if you are doing the right thing. Act on the promises youve made to your loved ones and to yourself; make sure all the rest of your days together are the very best days. Call hospice and learn how hospice services can help you, and your family. I can tell you with confidence that you will be amazed at the relief, the comfort and the power you will feel when you take back the rest of your life and live it, just as you wish, just as you promised. November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. Avow and other hospices across the country are reaching out to our local communities to raise awareness about the compassionate care that hospice can offer patients who have chronic or terminal illness and their loved ones and caregivers. Help for the holidaysOur upcoming programs include Coping with the Holidays, a program led by one of our bereavement specialists especially for people who are grieving a loss.

Led by chairs Cortney and Kevin Beebe, more than 400 supporters dedicated the night to our award-winning cardiology program. And for good reason. Ours is among the nations most outstanding cardiology academic programs, ranked in the top 10 percent by the Society of Thoracic Surgery.

Dan Kaplan, Pia Myers, Ray Phillips, Ken Plunkitt, Carlos Quintero, Sajan Rao and Justin Warner. Drs. Matt Baker and David Pitts received COMPASS awards for care and collaboration.Chief Nursing Officer Michele Thoman presented Nurse of the Year honors to Sandy ODonnell for North Naples and Amy Yates for the downtown campus. Beyond the honorees, we also took time to extol the support that NCH receives from a giving community. First, a picture of the recently completed, 18-bassinet Neonatal ICU, funded in part by proceeds from the 2012 Hospital Ball, was shared with guests. It was followed by a view of the North Naples ER renovation and expansion now underway, thanks to funding from the 2013 ball and the MacDonald family.

The author of Cracked Not Broken: Surviving & Thriving After a Suicide Attempt, he concentrates on living mentally well and inspiring others with his hope-filled message. He has appeared on Larry King Live, 0/20, Anderson Cooper 360 and Good Morning America and is featured in the 2006 film The Bridge.Hope also will shine at the luncheon when NAMI of Collier County honors people who have gone above and beyond to support its mission.

SWFLEYE.COM Nina Nordgren, M.D. WEISSFrom page A28SURGERYFrom page A28video clip. On their first night of marriage, Mrs. Karth suffered cardiac in her sleep. Mr. Karth successfully performed CPR before EMS arrived to take over until our ER and ICU teams initiated hypothermia (lowering the bodys temperature to preserve function). The next morning our cardiac team corrected the problem. The new Mrs. Karth recovered entirely but couldnt remember much of her wedding. A national TV show heard their story and repeated the ceremony for the couple. To top off their amazing story, the Karths announced at the ball that they are expecting their first child. When Chief Development Officer Jim Martin surprised the couple with a baby carriage, there wasnt a dry eye in the house. Inspired by Mrs. Karths story, Kathy Friday shared her similar experience almost 10 years ago, when she, too, was saved after suffering sudden cardiac arrest. The episode inspired Mrs. Friday and her husband Fritz to raise their bid paddle and donate $1 million to completely renovate one of NCHs six cardiac catheterization labs. The Fridays helped make it a fantastic evening as everyone celebrated the heart and soul of our extraordinarily generous community. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Attendance is free; reservations are requested and can be made by calling 348-4180. When lifestyle changes and medication dont help manage the symptoms of GERD, surgery might be the best option. Attendees will learn about minimally invasive surgery options to repair and resolve reflux disease. Following his presentation, Dr. Denk will take questions from the audience.

TIMM** FACFAS, DABLES, DABPS** NOW ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS! (239) 430-3668NaplesPodiatrist.com 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIve been wearing an activity tracker for the past six weeks, and its a good incentive to get up and move a little more so I can make my goal of 10,000 steps per day. But what about my dogs? Are they getting their recommended daily dose of exercise? You probably wont be surprised to learn that wearable activity monitors are available for pets they drew a lot of attention at the Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas last February but how do they work, and how accurate and useful are they? The tiny accelerometers contain a sensor that detects movement in all directions. Some units contain GPS capabilities that provide specific information on geographic location and distance traveled. They may also monitor heart and respiratory rates. The benefit for pets primarily dogs is the ability to monitor how active they are every day. A lot of us probably think our dogs spend time running around in the yard chasing squirrels while were gone, but thats not necessarily the case. Those of us who work at home know that our dogs tend to snooze the day away, getting up only when we go to the kitchen or call them to go out for a walk. Putting an activity tracker on your pet can be a wake-up call, alerting you that perhaps hes not quite as active as you imagined. While the monitors are good at detecting movement, they cant always differentiate between types of movement. For instance, a dog who sniffs the ground vigorously while lying down moves his head enough to register activity on the tracker, but that doesnt qualify as exercise. And a dog who scratches all day will rack up minutes of activity, but thats also not true exercise. Some measurements may not be as accurate for some movements, says internal medicine specialist Bess J. Pierce, director of the Center for Animal-Human Relationships at VirginiaMaryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, Va. For example, in one study, there was no significant difference between trackers in all test dogs for trotting and walking, but the measurements became more variable when dogs were trotting up and down stairs. An activity tracker cant assess overall fitness, but it can be useful for determining how many minutes per day your pet is active and the distance he logs, whether hes running around in the yard, walking with you on leash or hiking off leash with the opportunity to run back and forth. Most trackers allow you to monitor activity trends over time and keep logs or diaries of downloaded data. An app can allow you to compare his activity level to other dogs of a similar age, breed or size. And theyre not just for young, active dogs. These monitors may be especially useful in geriatric dogs, Dr. Pierce says. For example, if an older dog is arthritic and has a sudden decrease in activity level, then it may be associated with an acute flare-up of joint pain. Other uses include helping veterinarians follow a pets weight-loss progress or tracking scratching activity in dogs with allergies who are very itchy. A sudden decrease in activity could also signal a medical problem.If youre thinking of getting a canine activity monitor, choose one thats petspecific. Simply attaching your own device to his collar wont yield accurate results.As long as a tracker is used within its limits, the information provided can be accurate and useful in monitoring your pets activity, Dr. Pierce says. Plus, its just plain fun to see what your pet has been up to during the day. If you are concerned about your dogs activity level or just wonder what he does all day an activity monitor may give you clues.

A cold front to take away the SADnessIts been a long time coming, but I finally feel validated when it comes to my theory regarding reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Just in case you dont know anybody up north who gets seriously bummed out and gloomy in the dead of winter, SAD is a very real condition pinpointed back in the s by Dr. Norman Rosenthal of Georgetown University. During the northern winter when theres very little sunlight and its too cold to go outside, some people get so lethargic and depressed that they just sit on their couches and drink and cry. Some of them even buy light therapy lamps to help lift their mood. Its awful. I feel for people who suffer with SAD. I feel for them because I have it in reverse. And according to a recent report on NPR, Im not crazy there truly are people who get summertime SAD. Dr. Rosenthal says that as the days get brighter and hotter, some of us get depressed and agitated. Were so sad that we eat less and lose weight unless youre like me and you eat more when youre sad (unfortunately, no sadnessrelated weight loss over here). Obviously, Southwest Florida summers are far longer and much hotter than average summers around the country. Theyre humid and sticky, and even the bathwater-like Gulf of Mexico provides no relief. There are hardly any parties because its not season. Outdoor events are out of the question due to the possibility of heat stroke, and its too gross out to exercise. So we hibernate in our air-conditioned houses with the shades drawn, sit on the couch and cry and drink (or in my case, mostly eat peanut b utter straight from the jar). And it seems to last FOREVER. What makes summertime SAD even worse is the fact that there arent many people to commiserate with. Most Southwest Floridians love our laboriously long, sadistically scorching, blindingly bright summers thats why they moved here in the first place. So we summer SAD sufferers look like weirdos. Winter SAD sufferers get all the sympathy and therapy lamps while we turn out all the lights and stand nude in front of our freezers. Talk about sad But, finally, joyously, the veil of summertime SAD was lifted this past weekend by a delightfully refreshing cool front. Suddenly there was brisk air, lows dipped all the way down into the 40s, and we got to fall back (at last, I was rewarded with that hour of sleep that was robbed from me earlier this year when we sprang forward). It was magical. I felt lighter, happier and more alive than I had in months. I attended three daytime outdoor events and sparkled at parties in the evenings. Incidentally, all the women I spotted out this weekend were in a uniform of boots, jeans, sweaters and scarves bless their hearts. For me, it was flipflops, billowy skirts and T-shirts. I love feeling the chill while my friends shiver. Actually, I cant tell if theyre truly cold or simply excited to be wearing boots. I mean, honestly, boots in 70-degree weather? Are your feet really that cold? Wouldnt sneakers do the trick? But no matter. Even overly bundled up people cant take away my happiness. Heres hoping for record-breaking lows this season. If it gets down into the 30s, I might even break out some long sleeves. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

It seems like now when youre standing in Thomas Edisons Fort Myers laboratory, which was built that year. All his glass beakers, heavy-duty machinery and whatnots the original ones are arranged just as if he and the research team stepped out for lunch and would be right back, despite the fact that Mr. Edison died in 1931. In the space of those three years, the inventor of light bulbs poured his considerable creative and research ability into a new company, the Edison Botanic Research Corp. The mission: find a domestic, natural source for rubber, a resource valuable to the United States as well as his friends Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, who needed it for tires. The Edison & Ford Winter Estates offers regular tours of the Botanical Laboratory and gardens. Here, Mr. Edison and his team of specialists widely recognized as a template for what is now the modern research and development lab tested more than 17,000 types of plants, searching for a commercially viable source of natural rubber. Edison always thought there were solutions to be found in nature rather than synthesizing chemicals in a laboratory, said Mike Cosden, curator at theIn his swan song, the inventor created one of the areas first bioscience companies, seeking a domestic source of rubberThomas Edisons last adventureBY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com EDISON-FORD WINTER ESTATES / COURTESY PHOTOThomas Edison focused on botanical research at his laboratory in Fort Myers.

The National Association of Realtors tracks international purchases of U.S. residential properties as they have become an extremely important suspect of the residential market. For the 12 months that ended in March 2013, the Chinese accounted for $12.8 billion in residential purchases. For the 12 months that ended 2014, the Chinese accounted for $22 billion in U.S. residential purchases. Canadians still hold the top slot for the number of international transactions, but their dollar volume of $13.8 billion pales in comparison to the Chinese $22 billion. Quite obviously, the smaller number of transactions but larger dollar volume means that the Chinese are buying much more expensive properties. The Canadians mostly buy in Florida and then Arizona; the Chinese mostly buy in California and then heavily in Washington, D.C. and New York City. The half-million Canadians who winter in the states are staying under a visa allowing 180 days in a 12-month period. The Chinese are not staying under a visa allowing extended visits. They are largely staying under a visa that allows them full time and permanent residency; the visa is called the EB-5 visas and is granted to foreigners who plow at least $500,000 into American development projects. Congress created the program in 1990 to spur investment, and demand for the visas has grown recently. This year, for the first time, the government gave away the annual allocation of 10,000 visas before the year was over, with Chinese nationals snapping up 85 percent, accouding to Bloomberg Business Weeks Oct. 15 article, Why are Chinese Millionaires Buying Mansions in an L.A. Suburb? Chinese buyers have a particular challenge to buy in the U.S., as they must find a way to get around Chinas strict control on money leaving China. Per year, not more than $50,000 can be converted out of the yuan and into a foreign currency. The Chinese money coming into the U.S. is either coming out of Hong Kong, which does not have such limitations, or it is coming out of China in $50,000 allotments made by a large group of people coordinating the exchange out of yuan. The Business Week article clarifies how this coordination comes about; it is called head-count wiring. Buyers line up other people friends, family, or, if need be, paid strangers to each transfer a share, according to Business Week. The example in the column was a transaction of a $1.9 million house in Arcadia, Calif., that was created through some 30 different individuals each wiring $50,000. The buying spree that was once limited to residential properties might well be taking back seat to the buying of commercial properties by Chinese institutions, particularly the Chinese insurance companies which were allowed to invest much more money in U.S. real estate as of 2102. As reported in October by therealdeal. com, the Chinese insurance company Anbang Insurance Group agreed to purchase the Waldorf Astoria in New York City from Hilton Worldwide Holdings for $1.95 billion. In one fell swoop, the purchase of the Waldorf is more than the top purchases made by the Chinese in 2013. China surpassed Canadian buyers as the top purchasers of New York City office property, with two deals worth a combined $1.4 billion, according to The Real Deal. Chinese property developer Fosun International acquired One chase Manhattan Plaza for $725 million, while Zhang Xin, co-founder of developer Soho China, partnered with a Brazilian investor on a $700 million stake in the GM Building. This transaction likely heralds other major commercial transaction to soon follow, as it is hard to imagine that many other Chinese insurance companies will not follow suit. This transaction will likely further heat the New York City residential market that has spiked higher with Chinese purchases. Florida clearly benefits from the international buyer. It might behoove the state of Florida to consider some special invitations to the Chinese both for residential projects and commercial investments. And any Realtor who lands a Chinese national seeking or holding an EB-5 visa has likely found himself a client ready to buy a multimillion mansion.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Corrections Are CommonIn October, the stock market as measured by the S&P 500 dropped more than nine percentage points from its high in early September. That has had many investors panicking and selling essentially doing the opposite of Warren Buffetts advice to be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy. Being calm not to mention being greedy and snapping up bargains as prices fall is easier said than done, though. Too often, past market crashes are viewed as an opportunity, but all current and future crashes are viewed as a risk. You can adjust your thinking and tone down your emotions by reviewing some market history. Here are some facts dug up by analysts at Fool Intergalactic Headquarters: There have been about 90 10-percent corrections in the stock market since 1928. Thats about once every 11 months, on average. There have been 13 corrections of 10 percent or more since World War II that were not followed by a recession. Stocks fell 35 percent in 1987 with no subsequent recession. Since the market bottomed out in 2009, weve had three 10-percent corrections, with one in 2010, one in 2011 and one in 2012. Despite these drops, the Dow is still up 145 percent, and the S&P 500 is up 174 percent, since the bear market ended in 2009. The Nasdaq and the Russell 2000 have each more than tripled since the 2009 market bottom, even after pricing in the crash of the past two months. Indeed, even the big scare that October delivered in its first half got largely wiped out by a recovery in the second half. Corrections are common, and so are recoveries, though they dont always happen quickly. The best response to market crashes has usually been to do nothing or to grab shares of some beaten-down stocks that are now in bargain territory. If we still have many years of investing ahead of us, we should welcome market plunges because we can buy into good companies at lower prices. Sold Apple Too SoonMy dumbest investment? I sold 300 shares of Apple at $36 per share after a quick 20 percent increase! G.C., San DiegoThe Fool Responds: Judging from the Dumbest Investment stories people send in to us, thats a rather common blunder. Indeed, with shares of Apple recently trading near $96 per share, you lost out on a gain of more than 150 percent. Even worse, if your $36 sale price was before the companys 7-for-1 stock split, then your split-adjusted sale price would be close to $5 per share, reflecting a gain of roughly 1,800 percent left on the table. Ouch. Still, remember that hindsight is 20/20, and if at the time you no longer had much confidence in Apples future performance, or you thought its stock was more than fairly valued, then selling was the right thing to do. Investors need to make the most rational decisions they can, based on what they know and believe. And even if they do so, theyre likely to get some calls wrong now and then. Even Warren Buffett has made some mistakes. A Top-Notch RetailerCostco (Nasdaq: COST) serves all its constituents well. It has delivered to shareholders gains averaging 15.7 percent annually over the past 20 years. It offers low prices to customers, marking up most products by no more than 14 percent over cost. (In 2013, its average markup was close to 11 percent.) It treats its employees well, too, offering above-average wages and benefits, and in return enjoying a turnover rate of only 5 percent among those who have worked at the company for at least a year. (Customer turnover is low, too, with roughly 90 percent renewing memberships each year.) The company also strives to do right by the rest of the world through its business practices. As of 2013, it had the second-largest solar power generation capacity among U.S. companies, and it has stopped selling some at-risk fish species. Costcos efficient business model allows it to consistently generate a strong return on invested capital. With annual revenue topping $110 billion, its growing much faster than other big-box retailers in part because it sells items in bulk, which causes some customers to overbuy. Compared to rivals stocks, Costcos shares arent priced at bargain levels, but theyre still likely to reward long-term investors. One promising new growth initiative is a move to start selling products online in China. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Costco and has recommended it.) I trace my roots back to 1947 in South Korea, to a company that in its early days sold face cream and toothpaste. My brand name today suggests relatively high-end products and my slogan proclaims that Lifes Good, but at one time I went by the cuter moniker of Lucky Goldstar. Today I offer a wide range of products, including televisions, DVD players, music systems, security systems, smartphones, refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, battery packs for electric vehicles and much more. I bought Zenith Electronics in the 1990s. By 2009, I was the secondlargest LCD TV provider worldwide. Who am I? (Answer: LG Electronics) Activist InvestorsQWhat are activist investors? P.T., St. Joseph, MichiganAFrequently tied to hedge funds or private-equity companies, they buy many shares of a companys stock and aim to influence it. Theyll often secure seats on the companys board of directors, too. Common goals for activist investors are making changes in top management, taking the company private, engaging in significant cost-cutting, splitting up the company, and spending heavily on dividends or share buybacks. When an investor buys 5 percent or more of a company, he must file a 13D form with the SEC. That public filing can tip off observers to possible activist investor interest. Carl Icahn is one famous activist investor, who has pursued changes at companies such as Yahoo! and Time Warner. Recently, hes been encouraging Family Dollar to merge with a fellow discounter. Darden Restaurants, which operates the LongHorn Steakhouse and Olive Garden chains (among others), recently lost a battle with activist investors and had its entire board of directors replaced. Hertz, too, has given in to pressure, and is spinning off its equipment rental business. Meanwhile, PepsiCo has been pressured by Nelson Peltz to split up, in order to separate its beverage and salty snack businesses. ***QIve heard about biotechnology companies developing orphan drugs. What are they? N.R., Hanahan, South CarolinaAAn orphan drug treats a rare medical condition that fewer than 200,000 people in the U.S. have (or one that affects more people, but seems as though it would cost more money to develop than it would bring in). The Food and Drug Administration offers incentives for companies to develop orphan drugs, and with their prices typically very high, they have become money-makers for many companies.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Winter Estates. Mr. Edison, with financial contributions from partners Ford and Firestone, built the lab and headquarters in Fort Myers, right across from their homes. It was the right spot, the subtropical climate similar to where most of the worlds rubber was then being produced in Asia. In May, the Winter Estates was recognized by the American Chemical Society as a National Historic Chemical Landmark, the first such designation in Florida and one of only a few in the United States, for Edisons contribution as a researchand-development chemist. I think it changes the whole slant on the Edison and Ford site, said Chris Pendleton, CEO of the Estates. Its not just where they lived and vacationed, its where they came to work. I also think it characterizes Lee County a little differently. Its not just a tourist spot, its a place where research and invention is also happening and can have a home here. Thats true here and in other Florida counties, where governments and communities have wooed modern bioscience companies, such as Algenol Biofuels, which produces ethanol using patented algae technology. The companys research and development was like Mr. Edisons in that it systematically screened thousands of strains of algae to find a handful that work to produce ethanol commercially, said Paul Roessler, the companys chief scientific officer. He moved to the area about 2 years ago before visiting the Botanic Lab. When we ultimately made it to the Winter Estates I didnt realize at the time that this laboratory existed. Much of my career has been spent looking for renewable and domestic sources of these kinds of polymers You think about light bulbs and electricity and phonographs, I hadnt realized there was a botanical side to (Edison), but it made a lot of sense.Great expectations Today as in Mr. Edisons time, there was great interest in the positive impact that a bioscience company could have both in terms of notoriety and economically. For his Research Corp. the interest was on a national scale, although Mr. Edison employed a local team that included a research superintendent, linguist, shop manager, chemist, secretary, plant collectors and a part-time glass blower. The New York Times reported from Fort Myers in February 1927, Thomas A. Edison is working way past midnights in his laboratory here on an experiment which he believes will revolutionize the worlds rubber trade and change the South from the land of cotton to the rubber-producing center of the United States. That didnt happen. High labor costs associated with growing rubber plants was one of the big hurdles Mr. Edison faced. He believed he could invent a machine to harvest it at lower costs once he found the right plant. Others thought cheap foreign labor was the way to go. The New York Times reported in March 1927 that a retired British Army officer living in Palm Beach, Capt. Arthur Herbert Vaughan-Williams, thought the U.S. should import several thousand Hindu laborers to work on rubber farms. They can live on a handful of rice a day and it would cost little enough to keep them, the Times quotes Mr. Vaughan-Williams. Lasting impactAlthough Mr. Edison didnt end up creating a commercial source of rubber, his work at the lab has far-reaching historical significance. With British rubber flooding the market after World War I Great Britain established vast plantations on land ithad colonized in South Asia, Mr. Cosden explained one of Edisons and the United States hopes was to create a domestic source, a boon for national security and the economy. Goldenrod became the most promising plant after the Research Corp. bred a hybrid version for its purposes. In protecting his research, Mr. Edison and agricultural inventor Luther Burbank helped pass the Plant Patent Act of 1930, the first to offer plant breeders intellectual property protection, with implications for agricultural companies among others. Mr. Edison felt he was close to finding a domestic, commercial source of rubber. He told the Times in March 1930: Give me five more years and the United States will have a rubber crop which can be utilized in less than 12 months time. He died the following year in October. The U.S. Department of Agriculture took over the lab, which remained in operation until 1936. Eventually synthetic rubber became a solution for the U.S., with natural sources grown overseas. Now, at least one U.S. company, California-based Yulex, produces natural rubber to replace the petroleum-based version in some commercial products. It uses guayule, a plant native to the arid U.S. southwest. Its non-allergenic rubber has been used for products such as medical gloves, condoms, and Patagonia wetsuits. Melanie Venter of Yulex said volatility in the natural and synthetic rubber markets is driving a search for alternative sources of natural rubber and a more sustainable, local rubber producing project. Mr. Edison would have been familiar with those market forces, even if environmental concerns factor more heavily today. He was certainly frustrated with the process, Mr. Cosden said. But, overall, he seemed very excited and optimistic about it right up until the end of his life. And I think that was modus operandi for Edison. He was always very persistent and optimistic.

Many of them have also finally realized that its a transformative new business reality. But maybe you are still not convinced that the top dogs at your firm, possibly including you, need to get involved. Perhaps youre still thinking social media is something to be handled by a dedicated community manager or intern. Guess again. The Social Age where customers and employees expect to be heard by all levels of management requires a truly social CEO, what we call in A World Gone Social: How Companies Must Adapt to Survive a blue unicorn, because they are still so rare. Here are three compelling reasons why personally going social is imperative. Customers want you to be a brand ambassador Whether you lead a company of 30 or 30,000, your customers and your employees want to hear from you where they communicate already. In the Social Age, thats on their favorite social platforms. This isnt merely some trivial distraction or trendy advice you can afford to ignore: According to a survey from BRANDfog, 82 percent of respondents said they trust a brand more with a CEO who is active on social. You cant fight a number like that. Ignore it at your peril. One note of caution: Corporate leaders who broadcast their company message rather than engage with others in truly conversational back-and-forth are easily ignored; indeed, that old-school style of lecturing at ones followers can actually harm a brand worse than no online presence at all. Your employees and customers want more social, less media more two-way conversation, less canned messaging from the PR department using your account. Can busy leaders pull this off to their companys benefit? Is it worth the bother? Think of the influence that a socially exuberant Richard Branson has on the hundreds of companies in the Virgin Group. People dont love Virgin because it has a catchy name or fun TV ads. They love Virgin because Sir Richard is the smiling, very engaged face of his company. Or imagine the shock a complaining customer has when Tangerine Banks CEO, Peter Aceto, personally and quickly replies to their tweets from his smartphone late on a Saturday night. The CEO heard that? they surely think. And hes promised to fix it for me in a few hours? Really? Yes, really. And thats how Tangerine is dancing circles around the older, stodgier banks whose CEOs are too busy (or out of touch) to answer a request for help themselves. Social provides real-time business intelligence Imagine youre in an executive committee meeting and the topic of customer sentiment comes up. You know your customers hate you (your firm is among the worst on MSN Moneys annual Customer Service Hall of Shame list), but youre not sure exactly why. You begin to discuss holding yet another focus group when a new guy halfway down the conference table holds up his smartphone and says, They cant stand our nine-hour service window. Here, its all over Twitter. He shows you the stream for your company name, and sure enough, in real time you read one tweet after another that confirms exactly what this new guy told you. This actually happened several years ago at Comcast. The new guy with the Twitter-enabled smartphone was Frank Eliason, an executive advisor who was anything but a social guru. Mr. Eliason just wanted to know why customers so actively despised his new company, so he went on Twitter to find out. While wed like to say Comcasts C-level leaders saw the light and changed everything about how their company treats its customers, we cant. But Comcast did shorten that service visit window and now has a responsive, customermollifying presence on social. (Mr. Eliason, meanwhile, is now off to help the equally beleaguered Citi.) Your career might depend on being socially aware Still looking for that oomph that puts your career over the edge? The differentiator that gets you up to the executive floor? To the end of that long table? Or in the boardroom? How about this: Already, boards of directors are comparing the social fluency of their CEO candidates or so say many of the numerous board members and CEOs we interviewed for A World Gone Social. True, social wasnt even on most boards radars six years ago. By 2020, however, social fluency will be a Top 5 leadership requirement. Dont think your board will ever value social? The current members certainly may not, especially if no member is younger than 65. But as the composition of your board skews younger and more socially savvy, social fluency will become an essential competency. Get ahead of it, or prepare for obsolescence. Convinced that your brand needs a social leader, but you doubt youre the right one for the job? Dont fight it. Instead, look around the table at your direct reports and nominate another leader to be the smiling face of your company. Meanwhile, set up social accounts for yourself so you can know what your customers are saying about your brand, your competition and about the customer and employee needs you havent been meeting because until now you havent been listening. Its a new age of business the Social Age with rules as distinct from the Industrial Age as those rules differed from the Agrarian Age before it. And for your company to make the shift, it needs a truly social leader. Will that be you? Or your replacement?

Contact Betty Janitz with Bluebill Real Estate at 404-0722. House Hunting: COURTESY PHOTOSAudubon Country Club, Naples David and Kathleen Chilcote are two lucky people. The couple first came to Naples in 1997 after winning a vacation from a drawing held at Applebees. They fell in love with the area on the trip and soon decided to move down from Indiana. For their new home, they wanted a house on the west side of U.S. 41, near the beach and under $150,000. A tall order, even nearly two decades ago. David hated the housing search, so he was happy to let Kathleen do the looking while he was away on a business trip. When she picked him up at the airport, she recalls, she told him: I have good news and bad news. The good news is that you dont have to look at houses today. The bad news is that you already own one. She had found a two-bedroom, onebathroom bungalow less than a mile from Clam Pass listed at $110,000. It was such a good deal that she offered the owners the full asking price on the spot. They accepted, and the Chilcotes had their Naples home. Over the years, the couple has added touches to increase the propertysVintage bungalow in prime location, good fortune possibly included SEE BUNGALOW, B24 This Old HouseCOURTESY PHOTO BY ARTIS HENDERSONFlorida Weekly Correspondent

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 B17The Keewaydin IICOURTESY PHOTOAn aerial shot of the commencement of construction of three models homes and three enduser residences at Mangrove Bay in Old Naples.Construction begins on three models in Mangrove Bay SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMangrove Bay, a collection of 53 single-family homes set along Old Naples last remaining significant waterfront property for residential development, has started driving pilings for three model homes. The Amelia III, the Sanibel III and the Keewaydin II will have interior design by Freestyle Interiors. There are a total of six designs, each with three elevations, available at Mangrove Bay. Every residence has a private pool, patios and covered or uncovered boat slip. The Amelia III is a fourbedroom-plus-den, 4-bath design with a second-floor guesthouse. With approximately 3,640 square feet under air, the model will evoke a classic seaside cottage with heart pine floors, bead board accents, beamed ceilings, bench seat reading nooks and stacked stone for its two fireplaces. Next door will be the Sanibel III, a courtyard residence also with four-bedroomsplus-den, 4-baths and a second-floor guesthouse. With approximately 3,331 square feet under air, the Sanibel III will have limed oak floors, reclaimed wood accents, tongue-and-groove ceiling detail, barn doors and a master suite with cornerpocketing doors that open to the private pool and spa. The third model, which is already pre-sold with leaseback, is the threebedroom, 4-bath Keewaydin II, which has a second-floor loft and guesthouse. With approximately 3,730 square feet under air, it has a two-story great room with a nickel gap wood ceiling, a fireplace at one end and a built-in bar at the opposite end. The master suite offers an oversized sitting area with cornerpocket sliding doors that open to the pool and spa. In addition to the commencement of building the three models, three enduser residences will be under construction as well. This is an exciting time at Mangrove Bay, says Jon Rubinton of Mangrove Bay Development. Were driving the pilings for the first six homes to be started, and the site improvements we began in August are moving forward right on schedule and should be completed in mid-January. Those site improvements include clay brick streets; underground utilities featuring the latest fiber optics, natural gas feeds to every home, and burying the FPL power lines along Goodlette Road; a new entryway to the community; and landscaping. Because of the heavy earthwork underway, Mangrove Bay is now offering prospective buyers private tours by boat leaving from the dock at its sales center, a wonderful way to view the natural beauty of the property and see the perspective of a future homesite from the vantage point of its future dock. Homes in Mangrove Bay are designed by MHK Architecture & Planning. The sales center at 201 GoodletteFrank Road is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, as well as by appointment.

Golf Dream House Underway In Prato at Talis ParkNestled along the 14th hole of the Talis Park Golf Course, the 2015 Golf Dream House now under construction will provide any golfer with an ideal residence that marries luxurious comfort and amenities with the emerald-toned Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways and greens of one of just two Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed courses in the world. Developer Kitson & Partners is partnering with Golf magazine to create the Golf Dream House in the 416-acre Talis Park communitys Prato estate neighborhood. An enclave of twenty-four estate homes offering enhanced privacy and spectacular views, Prato epitomizes Talis Parks In the Park lifestyle. North facing residences enjoy unfettered golf and orchard views, a combination that provides a captivating landscaped effect. Those facing south offer the tranquility of endless water and golf course vistas. The view corridor of every Prato site is uninterrupted by another residence. Pratos residences range from 4,500 to over 7,000 square feet on 125 x 175 sites and start at $2.5 million.A collaboration between Interiors by Design West, BCBE Construction, Sunwest Homes, and architecture and planning by Weber Design Group, the Coastal California-style, two-story Golf Dream House will offer 6,216 square feet under air and a total of 10,293 square feet of space under roof. Designed to provide the comfort, luxury, and spacious indoor and outdoor entertainment areas that golfers prefer, the open Golf Dream House floor plan will include a formal living room with a stunning semi-circular wet bar and a double-sided fireplace, a formal dining room, a richly finished study, a sprawling gourmet island kitchen and great room, four bedrooms including a second master suite, four full-baths and two half-baths, a generous upstairs club room, and an elevator. The immense master suite will feature an outdoor sun deck in the bedroom that overlooks the golf course, as well as an outdoor shower in the bath. The second-floor club room will showcase a u-shaped sit-down bar, pool and card tables, comfortable seating, multiple televisions, and an outdoor covered terrace that will provide longrange golf course views. The great room will feature 90-degree pocketing sliders that will open the indoors to an outdoor living area with a massive pool and spa, a large u-shaped cabana bar overlooking the golf course, an artfully designed outdoor kitchen, and a lounge area that will include a fire pit and hug the edge of the 14th fairway. Pricing for the Dream House will be determined as construction progresses.The residence is Interiors by Design West CEO Glenn Midnets second Golf Dream House project. He also created and executed the interior of the magazines 2005 Dream House. Based on his previous experience, Midnet brought Golf, Kitson & Partners, and the design/build team together and continues to drive the project. Based on my experience, a project like this is a very fluid situation, said Midnet. I needed a design/build team that is not only creative and understands what golfers are about, but that is flexible and able to respond to developments as they occur. The collaboration of Design West, Weber Design Group, BCBE Construction, and Sunwest Homes is ideal. Bill Webers design of the Talis Park Golf Dream House is perfect for entertaining, with all the spaces working and flowing together. From the outdoor living to the upstairs club room that opens to a sundeck that overlooks the pool, its a home that is very open. Golfers like that. If theyre playing a round of golf with friends, they want to come home and have a beer by the cabana bar and relax.Acknowledged for its beauty and playability, the Talis Park golf course is a local legend and regarded as one of the nations premier golf experiences. Talis Park is ranked #91 in Golfweeks 2014 Best Residential Courses and is consistently ranked among the top 20 courses in Florida. After touring his creation, co-designer Pete Dye acknowledged the care the course receives by remarking, I havent seen a golf course like this anyplace in the world in as good of shape and condition as this one. Ever. I mean anyplace. Really. And Ive see a few. Talis Parks appeal continues to be acknowledged. The Collier Building Industry Association named Talis Park recipient of its 2014 Community of the Year over $1 Million and 2014 Best Sales Center Sand Dollar Awards. Talis Parks New Fashioned lifestyle, a choice of Spanish Eclectic, Caribbean Colonial, and Italian Renaissance architectural designs, and the completion of notable amenities have contributed to a surge in sales and construction activity. Opportunities to enjoy the Prato estate lifestyle are limited. All developer home sites in Prato have been sold. In addition to the Golf Dream House, four builder or investor owned home sites and one completed model remain available in Prato. Furnished estate models by McGarvey Custom Homes and Gulfshore Homes are planned for two of the sites. T.

In 1997, when they moved in, the house was a gray block, as David calls it, sitting on a sandy lot. Now, 17 years later, the home is painted soft white and outfitted with a custom-designed pool. Pergolas stand draped in flowering bougainvillea. A white picket fence marks the border of the property, and there are three small outbuildings one that serves as a storage shed, one that acts as an art studio and one that makes a pool cabana. The Chilcotes installed central airconditioning, a metal roof and a brick driveway. From their own sprouted seeds the yard now has three full-grown varieties of avocado trees that yield every season. The property also has a variety of other fruit trees mangoes, bananas, key limes, limes, lemons, grapefruit plus more than 50 pineapple plants. The house itself has retained many classic Florida details, such as the original 12-foot cedar plank ceilings that give the rooms a lofty feel and provide a poetic acoustical touch during summer showers. When the Chilcotes bought the house, Myrtle Terrace connected U.S. 41 and West Boulevard. Their property sat right in the middle of a busy thoroughfare. Soon after they moved in, to their surprise, workers started digging up the road in front of their house. The county had decided to divide the street to eliminate cross traffic. The Chilcotes suddenly found themselves at the end of a very quiet lane. Lucky, indeed. For sale by ownerDavid, 56, and Kathleen, 57, both have independent, enterprising spirits. They run their own business, a recruiting firm, out of their home. Kathleen is also a painter and jeweler designer, and both David and Kathleen are published writers and artists.When they decided to put their house on the market, not surprisingly, they wanted to sell it themselves. Between the location (walking distance to the beach and within a prime school district) and their own entrepreneurial skills, theyre confident they can handle the sale. The house is listed at $469,000 based on similar property in the area. Though the lot itself is zoned residential, it sits on a commercial street. All within a few blocks, theres a landscape design business, an upscale salon, a plastic surgeons office and a Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist, plus restaurants and Waterside Shops. If a potential buyer were interested in the home as an office rather than a residence, he or she would have to petition to rezone. The Chilcotes have been waiting for the right time to relocate, and that moment has come. They have five children and 10 grandchildren in the central Indiana area, where they plan to move. Theyre in no rush, they say, and so they have time to wait for the right buyers. With their luck, it wont take long.

C27-31 While many overlook technical theater, the truth is that without it you have a naked actor on an empty stage who cant be heard or seen. Technical theater is a big part of every show, but in The Naples Players upcoming production of The Spitfire Grill, the lighting really shines. Opening on the main stage at the Sugden Community Theatre on Wednesday, Nov. 12, The Spitfire Grill is about a newly released parolee named Percy, whos ready to leave her past behind when she begins working at a local diner in a little town where everyone knows your business. She soon becomes instrumental in changing the lives of the townspeople and giving them hope. Lighting designer Craig Walck is proud of his role in The Naples Players production of the musical. Usually, if someone notices the lighting during a production, then Ive done something wrong, Mr. Walck says. But in this show, youll notice the lighting because it becomes the focus. Its subtle yet effective, and helps the audience feel the sense of hope in The Spitfire Grill.

The singer/songwriter, who until recently performed as John Wesley Harding (yes, he named himself after the 1967 Dylan album), released his fourth novel earlier this year. Wonderkid ($26.95, Overlook) tells the story of The Wonderkids, a fictional British band that harbors the typical dreams of rock stardom: sold-out arenas, sex, drugs and rock n roll. They wind up becoming insanely successful but the catch is, theyre performing for toddlers. Singer/songwriter Rosanne Cash called it One of the very few novels about rock bands and the music business that doesnt have a single false note or outsider-wannabe pretensions. Thats because, as an indie musician himself, its a milieu Mr. Stace knows well. As he puts it, Ive had 25 years in dressing rooms; a lot of that stuff is familiar to me.

Before AfterPhotos courtesy of Grant Stevens, MD SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS In Paris, suffering from flesh fatigue Ive spent the past five weeks in Paris, most of it in museums. I visited the Orsay, the Orangerie, the JaquemartAndr and the Carnavalet. In all that time, let me tell you: I have seen a lot of breasts. Of course, I saw other body parts, too fleshy arms and thick legs, rounded stomachs on the women and chiseled bellies on the men, sculpted ears, carved noses, tapered fingers and diligently rendered toes. But what stood out the most were the breasts, mainly because they so often seemed out of place. If painters from the 18th and 19th centuries are to be believed, calamity and wardrobe malfunctions must go handin-hand. Rampaging Romans on the way to destroy a city? Mount Vesuvius about to demolish a civilization? Perfect moments for women to run around halfdressed. At a certain point during all these museum visits, it occurred to me that perhaps these elaborate scenes were only contexts for displaying the female body, that in the days before easy access to pornography, one simply hung ones titillation on the wall in the guise of historical allegory. Classier than todays options, thats for sure. And no quick switching between screens required. Sometimes, though, I think all this nudity can be excessive. Even in high art, even in famous museums, it seems less about artistic beauty than pure flesh on display. I found myself thinking this in the Muse dOrsay, standing in front of a canvas depicting a knight in a field of wildflowers surrounded by naked women. The nymphs all wore the same coy expression while casting pining glances in the direction of the knight, who only looked heavenward. His armor gleamed in the brilliant light from the sun as he turned his gaze away from the tempting flesh with nary a glance at a single pink nipple. In the face of all that egregious nudity, I thought: Is there such a thing as flesh fatigue? Can seeing the human form over and over again, in all its variations, dampen our enthusiasm for the very thing we seem always to be seeking? Yesterday I made a final stop at the Picasso Museum, newly opened after years of renovation. The museum is laid out thematically, and I was able to move through the rooms as though moving through Pablo Picassos stylist periods. You will not be surprised to learn that there was no shortage of breasts cubists breasts, surrealist breasts along with other parts of the female anatomy. By the time I reached the top floor, I had also reached the end of Picassos career. Even there, in the year before his death, naked women abounded. Picasso was still sketching the female figure, still capturing its lovely nuances, still obviously drawn to the images he was depicting. For him, there was no fatigue. Perhaps, then, there really is no such thing as too much flesh. Maybe we never grow tired of seeing the naked human form. On screen, on canvas, the body always draws us in. I should know. Why do you think Ive been spending so much time in museums? Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried Widow published by Simon and Schuster. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com e h

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYHe notes that a lot of people have written shitty rock n roll novels over the years; I think (the topic) defeats some pretty good writers. Somehow, they cant quite capture the essence of the rock world. But the British musician, relying on his experience, manages to get it right. That doesnt make it a great novel, he says, but its more right than most peoples, because its not really about rock n roll, but this weird sub-genre of rock music. It was like I was trying to make a sneak attack but coming at it from a different point of view. Most of my work is ultimately about families, or fractured families in one way or another. The band itself is a kind of cobbledtogether family, and the lead singer, Blake Lear, adopts a boy only 10 years his junior. The whole point of rock n roll is for kids, Stace says. Whether its Keith Richards or Little Richard going A-wop-bop-a-loobop, a-lop-bam-boom, its nonsense. This is the fertile idea. I thought: this is very fertile, rock music for kids. He himself has two children, ages 6 and 8. When they were younger, people would say, I bet you make a childrens album now. He wasnt so inclined, but it started him thinking: What makes someone want to make (a kids album?) What if you made one by mistake? Thats where it all came from. Songs by The Ramones, the B-52s, Cheap Trick, Are peppy, short, bouncy, easily cartooned, he says. Theyre all ripe to be kids bands if they wanted to be. As it is, they all make fun rock music. The novels chapter titles are classic rock quotes and the book includes full lyrics to seven fun, clever, nonsensical songs, with titles such as The Dog Mustnt Speak! and Noon in June. Stace has recorded two of the songs, Rock Around the Bed and Lucky Duck, as singles. Mr. Stace will be teaching and performing at the ninth annual Sanibel Island Writers Conference (Nov. 6-9). Cost of the conference is $400, $300 for BIG ARTS members and $250 for students. Hell be teaching a workshop Songwriting on Demand, and also give a free concert at 6:15 p.m. Nov. 7 in Schein Hall at BIG ARTS. Also performing and teaching at the conference is Gary Louris of The Jayhawks. (He performs at 6:15 p.m. Nov. 6.) The conferences keynote speaker is Pulitzer Prize-wining novelist Richard Russo, author of books such as Empire Falls, The Bridge of Sighs and Nobodys Fool. Florida Weekly columnist Artis Henderson will read from her memoir, An Unremarried Widow before Mr. Russos talk at 6:15 p.m. Nov. 8. Mr. Staces first book, Misfortune, was the novelization of a song hed written, The Wake of Misfortune. I decided to write a lengthy version of it, he explains. If you want to tell some stories, there are some stories you cant tell in a song. Thats the long and short of it, really. It took him seven years. Described by one critic as loopily Dickensian, it tells the tale of Lord Geoffroy Loveall, who rescues an infant, raising it as his own daughter. However, when Rose reaches adolescence, it becomes obvious shes actually a male. Nominated for the Guardian First Book Award, Misfortune was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the James Tiptree Jr. Award. Movie rights for it were sold in 2008. Blend Tristram Shandy with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and you have something of the spirit of this spirited tale, Kirkus Reviews said. His second novel, By George, is the story of two boys named George: one an 11-year-old boy, the other a ventriloquists dummy. His third book, Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer, published in 2011, was one of the Wall Street Journals Top Ten Books of the Year. Set in the classical music world of 1920s London, it opens with a news report of a composer who killed his wife and her lover, then himself, on the eve of the premiere of his new opera whose plot eerily echoes what has just occurred. His agents currently in the process of selling the film rights to it, so hes just re-read it, the first time hes done so since publication. I actually like it, he says. Its wellplotted, well-structured, and I dont know how I did it. I dont know how my brain managed to fathom all that stuff, the way things fit together. He has another novel in mind, also about music. But hes currently working on the memoir of dancer/choreographer Mark Morris. He released his most recent album, Self-Titled, last year, using his real name this time instead of John Wesley Harding. His songwriting advice at the conference will be very pragmatic, he says. How to get the job done: Finish the song, get it better, start it. There are millions of ways to cook that egg. I do a bunch of things but they all end up being the same thing in the end, he says. Teaching writing, reviewing, songs, helping somebody else to write, dissecting a novel for a screenplay. In the end, its all the same thing: keeping busy doing what you like to do, so you dont have to do anything but the things you like to do. Ive cobbled together a life in the arts. The trick is to integrate it all into your life, so it all reflects you. You cant second-guess whats going to be successful or what isnt, if you are not prostituting your talent, but doing something you feel happy doing and like to do. The only thing you have to offer the world is your own consciousness and being original, Mr. Stace says. Be the most you, you can be. Its probably the best thing you have to contribute. WRITERSFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOWesley Stace is a singer, songwriter and author. New York Magazine contributing writer Jennifer Senior was about to board a plane but graciously gave Florida Weekly a couple minutes of her time. At the Sanibel Island Writers Conference the woman whos interviewed practically everybody will teach The Art of the Interview, discussing How to draw out your subjects, minimize dull answers and not come off like a prying jerk. Her 2014 book, All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenting, was on The New York Times Best-Seller List for six weeks. Shes known for her 2006 profile, Dreaming of Obama, which is also the closing essay in New York Stories: Landmark Writing From Four Decades of New York Magazine and her October 2013 interview, In Conversation with Antonin Scalia, in which Justice Scalia states his belief in the existence of the devil. Heres an edited version of our conversation: Youre known for your profile of President Obama when he was first running, Dreaming Of Obama. Who are some other high-profile people youve interviewed? Clinton in 2005. I had 21 meals with the guy post-presidency. I went to Africa with him. (Justice) Scalia. Most senators. Senator John McCain. I feel as if Ive interviewed practically everybody. Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Steve Carell. I became friends with Brian Dennehy when he was in Death of a Salesman (on Broadway.) I profiled him. Gabriel Byrne when he was on Broadway. Chris Rock was just a genius. All that shrewd social commentary. Hes a real introvert. Covering Congress, I learned early on, dont cave into stereotypes about the Heartland. Ive interviewed Dustin Hoffman and Gene Hackman sitting together in a room. Holly Hunter and Kevin Spacey together. What makes a good interview? The best interviews are the ones where you start to see the world from the point of view of the person youre interviewing. The worst interviews are the ones where you have two collisions of sensibility. Either the interviewer has an adversarial point of view, or theyre not empathetic, so what happens is that you dont actually get to experience the world from the point of view of the subject. When I sat down with Justice Scalia, I was not going to argue with him, Im a liberal New York girl, I wasnt going to pick fights with him. Thats not the point; you want to know who he is and how he thinks. There was a moment in the interview, (where he was talking about his legacy) and he said, You know what, Im not the ultimate judge, my Maker is. I thought, Oh wow, (and asked) Do you believe in heaven and hell? He said, Of course. Dont you? I said, I dont. Thats how everything, the whole do you believe in the devil came up. You want to get to know him, know the world through his eyes, (have) his sensibilities popping off of the page. The best interviews are when you get to experience how they think and feel. Do people just naturally like to talk about themselves? Yeah, most of the time they do. Everybody has stories and everybody feels less appreciated and less heard than theyd like to be. You have to pay attention Ideally interviews are like conversations, literally like conversations.

At least it is as seen through the eyes of award-winning playwright Christopher Durang in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, playing at the Florida Repertory Theatre through Nov. 19. This tale of three siblings, all in their 50s, would break your heart if it werent so funny. Well, it breaks your heart anyway. But the laughter helps. Early in the play, Sonia tells her brother she had bad dreams the night before. I dreamt I was 52 and I wasnt married, she says. Were you dreaming in the documentary form? her brother replies. And there you have it in two lines: heartbreak and humor, all mixed together. Their parents, as Vanya explains, were college professors who dabbled in community theater, naming all three siblings after Chekhov characters. When Sonia proclaims, Im in mourning for my life, Vanya tells her, I hope youre not going to make Chekhov references all day. But the play is filled with them, from the siblings names to mentions of Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, The Cherry Orchard and The Seagull. Mr. Durang also skillfully weaves in Chekhovian themes, including discontent with ones life, struggling with the monotony of provincial life and the potential loss of the family home. But he does it with the keen sense of the absurd for which hes so well known. You dont have to know anything about Chekhov to enjoy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, but if you do, itll deepen your appreciation of the play. (The program notes provide some helpful background.) The play is not based on Chekhov, nor is it a parody of Chekhov, Mr. Durang has said. Its as if I took characters and themes from Chekhov and put them in a blender. And if youre of a certain age, youll relate to the characters and understand their struggles and perhaps even feel as though youre seeing your own life acted out onstage. Vanya (Graham Smith) and Sonia (Viki Boyle) are living in the family home in Bucks County, Pa., having taken care of their parents for 15 years before burying them. (Set designer Richard Crowell has given them a very symmetrical, beige-on-beige home with a staircase smack in the middle.) Theyre flailing around, at a loss at what to do with their lives now. We are in our twilight years, and we realize weve never lived, Sonia says. Their famous movie-star sister, Masha (Kim Ostrenko), whos been paying all the bills while her siblings took care of their parents, comes home to visit. She sweeps in, bringing her latest boyfriend, Spike (Ryan George), a buff boy-toy in his 20s. Ms. Ostrenkos performance is the perfect send-up of a self-absorbed, overly dramatic actress who believes shes the star of every scene she happens to be in, whether in front of the cameras or not. But Ms. Ostrenko carefully allows us to see the cracks in her characters perfect veneer: the five failed marriages, the fear of not being seen as a serious actress, the fear of aging, the fear of being overtaken by younger, prettier actresses. Mr. George takes his character overthe-top, giving us a preening, narcissistic young actor who is more chiseled body than brain; he finds any excuse to take his clothes off and show off his muscles. Hes so self-involved hes oblivious. His best moment comes when he reenacts an audition for Entourage 2, posing and silently mouthing the other actors words. His reverse striptease is another highlight; youd never have guessed that watching someone put on their clothes could be so sexy. Of course, with Spike, everythings sexy. Mr. Smith, as Vanya, is the plays calm center. Hes the family peacemaker, the older gay brother from the generation that didnt talk about being gay. His rant, which includes everything from postage stamps and written letters to rotary phones to Ed Sullivan and Senor Wences, drew well-deserved applause from the audience. The weather is changing, the culture is very weird, he says. Im not a conservative, but I do miss things in the past. He worries that there are no more shared memories or experiences anymore, that people are so disconnected from each other because of their over-dependence on various electronic devices. And while his monologue which takes up five pages in the script touches on popular culture, you realize its more than that, its deeper than just a commonly shared TV show: Vanya is mourning a life that was slower, more personally connected, more meaningful. Its as if he looked up and everything has changed so drastically, hes wondering where his life has gone. Ms. Boyle as Sonia, the woebegone sister with the inferiority complex, has her own moments in the spotlight, including a priceless phone call monologue that makes you want to just take her in your arms and protect her. She is perfection in this role, whether its the way she delivers a line or her facial expressions or her physicality. She constantly surprises, and she constantly gets the laughs (and her Maggie Smith impersonation is spot on). Florida Rep favorite Michelle Damato plays Cassandra, the siblings prophesying cleaning woman. Shes an actress with great comedic talents; unfortunately, they are only seen in glimpses in this play. She plays the role with a thick accent of indeterminable origin, making her words indecipherable at times. At times the humor came through, but at least half of delivery was lost to the audience. And when she pretends to be giving the weather report, shes staged in such a way that we only get to see her from a side view. I wish director Robert Cacioppo hadnt had her play her character so broadly; I think she would have received many more laughs. Florida Rep performance intern Courtney Feiman plays Nina, the cute young actress visiting nearby. Though her role is small, she offers hope for the future. After all, she likes foreign movies and The Beatles. Costume designer Alexandria Hoffman had a field day with this play, as it calls for party costumes including Snow White, Prince Charming and two of the Seven Dwarves. Ms. Boyles sequined gown (she is, she explains, the Evil Queen from Snow White as Maggie Smith on her way to the Oscars) absolutely transforms her. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike will be the most produced play nationwide this season, according to American Theatre magazine. (Twentyseven theaters will produce it, including Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples.) Its so much a part of theater culture now that The New York Times cleverly played with its name for a review of Donald Margulies play The Country House, titling the review: Vanya and Seagull and Mash-Up and Spite. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, which began Off-Broadway and moved to Broadway, won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play and the OffBroadway Alliance Award for Best New Play. And seeing this production at Florida Rep, you can understand why. Mr. Durang and this cast get so many things right: the callowness and narcissism of youth; the self-centeredness of actors; the love and squabbling among siblings and their realization that now that their parents are gone, the only family they have is each other; the middle-aged fears: Is this all there is? Is this all Ive done with my life? Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike takes all that and makes you laugh while youre nodding in rueful recognition. a ( h c b C nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Ryan George as Spike and Kim Ostrenko as Masha in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.

As with all pre-emptive bids, weak twos present a challenge to the enemy, who often overreach themselves by bidding a game or slam unwarranted on their combined values. The outcome may then depend on the proficiency of the defenders. Consider this deal from a teamof-four match. At the first table, the bidding went as shown, and NorthSouth wound up in three notrump with only 23 high-card points. Declarer then made the contract after West led the queen of spades and East turned up with the king of hearts, allowing South to score nine tricks consisting of one spade, three hearts and five clubs. Wests twospade bid at this table thus backfired, pushing North-South into a game they almost surely would not have reached if left to their own devices. Oddly enough, the bidding went the same way at the second table, but here the outcome w as altogether different after West hit on the inspired opening lead of a diamond. East won the trick with the jack and shifted to a spade, taken by West with the jack. West led another diamond, won by East with the queen, and East returned another spade. When the smoke cleared, East-West had scored six spade tricks and three diamonds to put the contract down five 500 points a terrible penalty to pay for a marginally ambitious contract. The deal thus demonstrates both the advantage and disadvantage of pre-emptive bids, as well as the difference good judgment can make in determining the final outcome.

The lighting for most musical productions tends to be elaborate and flashy, but this is not the case for The Spitfire Grill, Mr. Walck says. The show starts off stark and devoid of color, and gradually gets warmer, more colorful and cheerful, he explains. And while most people think you simply turn on the lights, any lighting designer would tell you otherwise. Mr. Walck, who has a degree in technical theater and more than 25 years of experience, says he starts off by reading the script multiple times and then listening to the soundtrack. Once he gets a sense for the play, he meets with the scenic designer to present ideas and see if there are any issues. You have to get really creative when youre placing lights, he says. Im always looking for ways to light under a platform, or create a more straight-on angle by bringing things closer. Production meetings are next. Once the set design is finalized, he watches numerous rehearsals and begins writing down all of his lighting cues. I cant fully realize the ideas until I see the actors utilize the space, he says, adding, Lighting the set is one thing.

No appointments are necessary. Two males actors are needed, one in his 50s to play famed abstract impressionist Mark Rothko and one in his 20s to play the artists eager assistant. Barry Cavin, a professor in the theater department at Florida Gulf Coast University, will direct. Winner of the 2010 Tony Award for Best Play, Red explores the compelling and vulnerable relationship between an artist and his creations as he fights for relevance in the art community. Mr. Rothko has just received the biggest commission in the history of modern art: a series of murals to be hung in the newly built Four Seasons restaurant. Working feverishly with his new apprentice, Ken, the artist challenges the young mans artistic point of view every step of the way. When Ken challenges him, however, the virtuoso is forced to contemplate his own artistic significance. Rehearsals begin Dec. 15, and performances are Feb. 4-28.

YesAll hail the American dream, which doesnt give a damn where youve been and only cares about what you make of yourself. Its an ideal wrapped in history and sentiment, glorified by championing the successful and ignoring the downtrodden. It made sense as a sales pitch to the world a century ago, when the United States was the melting pot of nationalities from around the globe. But today, with a globalized economy and the worldwide web, the capitalistic virtues of the American dream have cynically eroded, arguably to the point where its more a pipe dream than anything else. Then again, maybe it was always a pipe dream. Dream or no, for some people, making their way to the United States means survival. The Good Lie tells the story of four refugee children from the Sudan whose families were murdered, leaving them orphans during the African civil war. The first half hour of director Philippe Falardeaus (Monsieur Lazhar) film shows their journey in and through Africa as children, desperately working together to survive militia, dehydration and starvation as they walk more than 785 miles to a Kenyan refugee camp. There they hope to get lucky and be transported to the U.S. for a better life. Mamere (Arnold Oceng), Jeremiah (Ger Duany) and Paul (Emmanuel Jal) are selected to go to Kansas, but INS sends their sister, Abital (Kuoth Wiel), to Boston (draw whatever slavery parallel youd like from this separation of family by the white man, but I dont think thats the intent). The culture shock is glaring: Theyve never seen white people butte r, cell phones, interior lighting, running water, bunk beds and more. Pizza makes the most sense for them to eat because they naturally use their hands, not silverware. The three in Kansas want to go to school, work hard, live long and prosper. When they arrive, they know how lucky they are; what they dont know is how hard it will be to rise above the poverty line. Helping them adjust and land jobs are employment agent Carrie (Reese Witherspoon, without whose star power the movie probably wouldnt have been made) and her boss, Jack (Corey Stoll), who at first view the children as business as usual. But gradually and predictably they begin to care about the immigrants more than usual and do things they ordinarily would never do to help. Its all in the name of the best interests of humanity; when you can throw in a sappy score and drawn-out melodrama in the interest of box office dollars, even better. It is not, however, fair to categorize The Good Lie as tearjerker pandering. Mr. Falardeau has too much respect for the material for that. The film is honest, humorous and heavy with metaphors, all in ways that serve the narrative well. And although it isnt an outright critique of the American dream so much as it is about the refugees, where theyve been and where they want to be, it does grind home the reality that prosperity is not given, its earned. It can be easy to lose perspective on that sometimes. The Good Lie is a work of fiction based on real events, so the more farfetched moments can be forgiven via artistic license. Besides, the rest of the movie is grounded enough in reality to make this a nice film thats worth seeing. dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Stars Emmanuel Jal and Ger Duany are real members of the Lost Boys of Sudan who now live in North America.

FILM CAPSULESGone Girl (Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris) Nick Dunne (Mr. Affleck) looks increasingly suspicious after his wife (Ms. Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. Fantastic performances and precise directing from David Fincher (The Social Network) make this one of the best of 2014. Rated R. Big Hero 6 (Voices of T.J. Miller, James Cromwell, Ryan Potter) Robotic engineering prodigy Hiro (Mr. Potter) needs the help of friends with superpowers to track down the villain who stole his creation. The animation is bright and crisp in 3D, the action rollicks and theres a good amount of humor throughout. Disney Animation (Frozen) does it again. Rated PG.Birdman (Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts) Chaos ensues as an actor (Mr. Keaton) who once played a superhero tries to go serious by staging an adaptation of a Raymond Carver short story. The performances are strong, and the artistic approach to appear as if the film is all one shot is a bold move by director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel). Still, it doesnt necessarily percolate and come together in all the right ways. Rated R. The Judge (Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga) Hotshot defense attorney Hank Palmer (Mr. Downey) defends his small-town judge father (Mr. Duvall) in a murder trial. Mr. Downeys charm is enough to keep you interested throughout this too-long legal drama. Rated R.Hector and the Search for Happiness (Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette) Bored British psychiatrist Hector (Mr. Pegg) travels the world investigating what makes people happy. Its an impossible question to answer, but this earnest comedy provides just enough laughs. Rated R.The Hero of Color City (Voices of Christina Ricci, Owen Wilson, Sean Astin) Crayons come alive after their owner goes to sleep, but calamity strikes and Yellow (Ms. Ricci) has to lead the other colors before they fade away. Its strictly for little kids, and Im not even sure if theyll enjoy 77 minutes of this. Worse, its torture for parents. Rated G.The Trip to Italy (Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Rosie Fellner) In this sequel to The Trip (2010), friends Mr. Coogan and Mr. Brydon play a version of themselves as they tour fine eateries in Italy. Its more consistently funny than the original, and the beautiful Italian landscape is nearly worth the price of admission alone. Not Rated (strong language).

CreateSpace. 292 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95; Kindle e-book, $3.99. This deeply moving and richly informative book traces the journey of the author, her parents, her five siblings and other relatives as they attempt to survive the Nazi occupation of France. From a northern section of France characterized by large families, the Gaillets could be considered affluent. The authors father, mile Pierre Gaillet, headed a major paper manufacturing and distribution enterprise built by his wifes Avot family. During the war years he was entrusted by other industry leaders to represent their interests and, as much as possible, maintain their independence from the German occupation. At this he was quite successful. His main wartime task, however, was keeping his family safe. The theme of young Hlnes life (she was born Dec. 1, 1935), as she recalls it so many decades later, is moving on. The narrative proper begins in 1939, as prescient Frenchmen like Monsieur Gaillet sense Germanys intentions to storm France through its Belgian border. He immediately begins planning for his familys welfare. Monsieur Gaillet found it necessary to engage the family in several relocations, both out of necessity and opportunity, seeking the relative safety of places off the beaten track and away from occupation tyranny. They adjusted to a pleasant seaside community, to a monastic institution where they were protected but kept strictly separate from the nuns and others who resided there, and to several other locations for shorter or longer periods. They also spent some time in Paris, which was a dangerous move motivated in part by the desire to keep the family together, in part by the attraction of Paris even in unplanned dishabille, and in part by the lure of exceptional accommodations. Here, Madame Gaillet somewhat miraculously built a business as an art gallery owner. Though the father was a fastidious planner and manager, his wife and children from whom he was away for long periods did suffer severe, though survivable, deprivations: prolonged scarcities of food, warmth, clothing, schooling and medical care. The journeys from one place to another were often quite arduous and dangerous. Being together made these hardships more bearable than if the individuals had been isolated from one another. For young Hlne, the absence of toys is sometimes as painful as the very empty stomach. For herself, her brother and her sisters, these years living in fear, often on the run or in overcrowded temporary quarters, are years in which their childhoods were lost. One of the authors many achievements is to make this story of her familys travails representative as well as personal and specific. She does this by keeping in touch with the wider world, setting this story into the larger story of WWII in Europe. On several welcome occasions, when the lens opens up to this wider view, readers are given tools to put the Gaillet family story in context. As it moves back and forth from the narrower perspective to the broader Madame de Neergaard, each dimension of the story is enhanced.

These were his memoirs of a war never forgotten. To this significant source she has added her memories of family conversations. Though Madame de Neergaard has attempted to recall her childhood years from her birth until the end of my familys turmoil in 1946, we must accept that fact that memories of ones earliest years are unreliable. Readers will be thankful for this construction of the Gaillet familys experiences that spans the course of the war in France and its immediate aftermath. Though childhood memories are everywhere in this book, the author is writing as the family historian. The recollections of a child not even 11 years old as the story concludes are amplified and underpinned by other sources (including family photographs) and by decades of mature considerations and reconsiderations of the experience. The childs eye perspective, as qualified and enhanced by the understandings and researches of the adult Hlne, makes for a stunning, emotionally charged narrative. The prose style is clear, vivid and graceful. The episodes are jammed with suspense. I predict that I Was a War Child will attract and fascinate many readers.

C20 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY CELEBRITY EXTRADallas gets cancelled, again BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Please tell me that Dallas hasn't been canceled! Karolyn, Lubbock, TexasQ : I understand Dallas has been canceled? Is that true, and has any other network picked it up? Chuck B., via emailA: I hate to be the one to confirm those rumors, but it is true: TNT has canceled the nighttime drama after an explosive third season and shocking finale. In this era of lots of cable and Internet channels, and with so many other shows being saved from cancellation by other networks (i.e., Cougar Town, The Killing, Community, Arrested Development and more), all hope is not necessarily lost, but as of this writing there is no talk of the show resurrecting somewhere else. Dallas originally ran from 1978 to 1991. TNT revived the show in 2012. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

C22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY The Chairs in Your Parlor By P.M. Hughes Arcadia The temperature sign over the bank read 101 degrees, the time, if anyone cared, was 11:15 a.m. She could see the translucent, squiggly waves bouncing off the parking lot surface of the old drive-in on the side of Highway17. Witches heat, thats what her mom had always called the illusion. Whatever it was called, it was hot and the waves were just one more con rmation of the stupidity of this summer trip to the interior of Florida. She laughed at herself, going to a 50th year high school reunion, something she swore shed never do. Such a small class from such a long time and so many worlds away from her present life. The light turned green and as soon as she pressed on the gas pedal of her gray Lexus hybrid, she felt the pull of the steering wheel and heard the bump-bump sound of a attening tire. Damn road, she thought, no doubt full of nails and debris from farm trucks, fruithauling semis and migrant buses overloaded with workers. All of it crowded on the same old two-lane road that was way more than 50 years old. No choice, she pulled off the road into the hot parking lot, taking time to park in the shade on the side of the decrepit building. The shade didnt offer much relief from the summer heat but at least the glare was out of her eyes. She sat in her car running the motor to keep the AC going, looking through her purse for the card of the auto association with the rescue road service telephone number for emergencies. She was sure 60-plus-year-old ladies with at tires in the 100-degree heat was an emergency. She had no qualms about playing the old lady in distress card when needed. The voice on her cell phone requested the cross streets where she was located. She gave the name of Highway 17 and the town. Not enough direction, complained the voice at the service. They needed two street names to accurately locate a customer. Reluctantly, she got out of the car and walked out in the sun to the corner to check and see what the streets were called these days. Damn, it was too hot to walk on the overheated parking lot to the corner sign. Shed have to squint in the glaring light to read the signs. Operator, she said into the phone Im at the corner of Magnolia and Brevard. Brevard is Highway 17. Actually you have to turn off Brevard to get into the parking lot. There is no entry from Magnolia which is also known as Highway 70 as I previously told you. Got it, responded the voice on the cell phone. OK, itll be at least 30 minutes before we can get someone there. Will you be all right? Yes, she replied, Im in the shade and I have AC in the car. Im sure Ill be ne, As she walked back to her car she thought about the corner address, Magnolia and Brevard. It sounded so familiar. She knew this address. As she approached the building she thought it might be open because of all the signs indicating service was available. As she looked in the window, she realized it was closed. Most of the food items she could see indicated the type of food available was probably Mexican. She could see large bags of Masa our for tortillas, jars of salsa, cans of tomato sauce and chilies and similar seasonings. Wow, certainly not a food choice available when she lived here. She noticed the parking lot where her car was parked seemed like a recent addition. Scars of what might had been a room on the side of the building were still visible on its walls. She sat on her car seat and turned the AC up to cool her sweating body. As she looked around, she realized she did know where she was. This old building used to be called The Point, she thought. It was the weekend and special event hangout for high-school students in her day. This was the place where you spent time with your friends driving around and around the parking lot checking out who was there. After all, back then, gas was only 30 cents a gallon. You could nd that much in the bottom of a purse or the oorboard of a car. Parents didnt fuss so much then. They were not obsessed about their childrens whereabouts. Everyone knew where you were. It was a small town, not so many kids to keep track of and no place else to go after a football or basketball game. She remembered the room on the side of the building. It had a jukebox where she and her friends danced and laughed and enjoyed being young. There was an innocence and sweetness about those gatherings. In her mind she could see them now. Sharon and Genie were always showing them new dances. It was a special place and time, before the war and peace marches and the civil rights movement. Back then, most of her friends didnt worry about what happened after high school. She had always known she would go away to college after graduation. She had already been accepted in a college in the North, had earned a scholarship and, with that, secured the promise of a new life as far away from here as one could get. She remembered this place was where she and Bobby slow danced a hundred times. Bobby had a wonderful smile that stirred her soul. They met here every Friday night. He would show up wearing pressed jeans with a crease down the legs, a starched white cowboy shirt with pearl buttons and beautiful cowboy boots. Not the kind marketed to everyone today at the large sports stores, but the real ones that were broken in over a period of years to t just one pair of feet. His boots had the high heels and narrow toes and tooled leather down the tted sides. He never once stepped on her toes in those boots. She could remember how he smelled in that starched white shirt. There was a clean, pure masculine smell to him and especially his shoulder where her head lay as they danced. The dance was so intimate with their bodies so close it was as if they were part of each other. As she thought about it, she was surprised todays kids, with their pornographic twerking didnt understand the pleasure of making love with your clothes on while slow dancing. Her parents were always polite to him, but they made it clear to her they did not care for him. They felt he had little ambition and would live and die right here. He was the son of a small cattle rancher and that was what he intended to become, a cattle rancher. That was not a future they saw for her. They did not allow her to date him but she still saw him at school and every Friday they had their dance. The last dance they had was here. The jukebox played their favorite song. The King himself sang Are You Lonesome Tonight for them, just as he had so many times. The night had ended in an argument. Bobby did not want her to go to college up North. He wanted to get married as soon as possible after they graduated. She didnt understand why he couldnt wait for her to follow her dreams. Neither of them understood the future would change so drastically and violently. After graduation she went to college in the North and was swept up in the Civil Rights movement and later in the protests against the war. She met and married a student activist. After college, her husband went into politics. She became a prominent congressmans wife and had never returned to live in the South. While in college, she had learned from friends at home that Bobby had been drafted into the Army.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 her third year of college, the dean had called her into his of ce and let her know Bobby had died in a place called Chu Lai in Vietnam. She had been stunned for months but life went on for her. Now, as the memories came back to her in the parking lot, tears ran down her face for the dead son of a small cattle rancher. She could still hear Bobby singing in her ear the words from the song of their last dance. Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare? Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there? Is your heart lled with pain, shall I come back again? Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight? The Spark By Nancy Reges Murvine Marco Island The auction took less than a half an hour. But three hours later, I was on my fourth and nal pickup of treasures. My truck could only hold one picnic table at a time and I had to have all four. The old roadside diner, really more like a kitchen and some outside tables, was being demod, like all the other little businesses along the service road that now formed a miniature ghost town. Harolds barbecue, was the last holdout. This auction, its last hurrah. The highway on-ramp to the bypass shouldered against the old building like the town bully. The rusting metal roof looked like a big st had smashed it at. Some signs still hung in the window announcing breakfasts for $2.99 and grilled cheese for $1.99, but everyone who grew up around here knew it was the southern, vinegary barbecue that made Harolds famous. The neon sign that ashed in rotating sections Bar B Que was the rst thing sold. I didnt recognize the bidder and could only hope that the tables did not hold as much sentiment for her as they did for me. My luck held and now I was taking the last table to its new residence. Every summer on our way out of town, our car loaded with a weeks worth of beach paraphernalia, Dad would stop to pick up two quart containers of pulled pork with a little extra sauce on the side, please. You never know if this might be the last time we stop here, hed say, and my mother would goodnaturedly slap him on the shoulder for being such a doomsayer. On the way home a week later, he would exclaim, By golly, goodness, shes still here, and wed pull in to grab another order of pork to celebrate our good fortune. His could be the last time for the old girl would be followed by another loving smack from my mother. The routine never varied and it never grew old. Today, though, my fathers playful prophecy became a somber truth. I had taken the rst of my picnic tables home for my twin girls. Wont that thing tip over as soon as one person sits down? My wifes alarm seemed reasonable given the construction. Seats and table top were integrated with bolts and welds onto a single curved frame. Not if the girls sit down at the same time opposite each other, see-saw style. I had not assuaged her fear. Just kidding. My dad used to say that to us. Roger, wait for your sister and on the count of three, sit down together. I was 10 before I realized it was his way of keeping us siblings from ghting and had nothing to do with the tables. Theyre as steady as a rock. As proof, I plunked onto the faded, nearly pink seat. My twins happily took their places opposite me when the table remained in its fully upright position. By the time I said goodbye, heading back to retrieve the second table, the girls were kneeling on opposite benches, each sharing a bowl of water for their paintbrushes and swiping streaks of rainbow across white paper. The next generation painting the next memories. The second table went to my sister Linda. I laughed when she begged me to bid on one for her, using the same whine she used when she was my 6-year-old little sister and we pleaded our cases for who should get the seat in the shade and whose bottom would sting against the red metal seat soaking up sun-scorching heat. Like all the other rituals involving Harolds, this one, too, never varied when we stopped after swim practice for an ice cream cone. We each remained entrenched in our argument I was privileged by being the oldest; she was deserving by being the youngest despite the fact that someone always threw a towel or a T-shirt as a cover onto the bench before anyone sat down. Only tourists, people passing through really, ever stood up with red marks branded onto the esh below their short lines. Like my table, this went into her backyard on their new, paver patio. Her husband had plans to drill a hole for a market umbrella, and she was going to repaint the whole thing in the latest designer colors. I accused her of destroying a perfectly good piece of vintage furniture. She called me a stick in the mud. This argument, like so many others we have had over the years, was moot. The last two tables were going to Whispering Pines, the nursing home a few miles up the road. My sister and I agreed that Dad, a memory patient there, deserved a little piece of our shared past although neither of us believed it would spark any real memories. He had slowly lost track of his own children, sometimes calling one of my daughters by his own daughters name. Other times he looked at me or my sister with a skeptics scowl that shamed us into no longer asking if he knew who we were. In truth, this slipping away took a toll on us more than our father, and these little tables were the only things we imagined that could still connect the three of us in some small way. I had delivered the rst and set it up under the tall loblolly pines in the back where paths, wide enough to allow for two passing wheelchairs, meandered to nowhere in particular. The place cried out for respite from the mundane routine of its days. Two men waited patiently while I wiggled the table snug against the trunk of a tree with a canopy large enough to keep most of the table in its shade. They thanked me as they spread out a chess set, the two immovable, opposing seats the requisite for such a battle. When I returned with the second one, the chess players had moved on. My father was waiting at the nurses station, docile as always. The nurse pulled me aside. Mr. Newport, I have to warn you that your father is having a dif cult day. I had not known my father to ever have a dif cult day. What do you mean dif cult? To be honest, he is being dif cult, the nurse whispered almost apologetically, but her emphasis on the word being shocked me even more. Since you brought the table, he has been agitated or, more precisely, the agitator. Behind us he moved to the locked French doors. He could see the world outside but not be a part of it unless someone took him there. He rapped on the window, not an angry rap but an attention-getting knock. Hey, Roger, on a count of three, not before. You dont want it to tip over. Two women who had set their iced teas on the table, looked up. One, two, three. The women picked up their glasses and moved away. See what I mean? I nodded. And he keeps demanding that people put something on the seats. He took off his shirt and tried to offer it to one of the nurses to take out there. I couldnt help myself. My chuckle became a belly laugh. I am sure the nurse thought I was losing my mind, but I assured her that my father was regaining a little slice of his. I was excited to share this story with my sister, so excited that while I was bent down to retrieve her number from my phones contact list, I nearly knocked over two men moving a ladder away from the entrance to the communal dining room. I heard one of them say, It would be cool if this thing lights up and the other respond, Flip the switch; these old girls never go bad. In rhythmic succession, the spark of words lit up: Bar B Que.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 6-12, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 Rotarians annual wine fest renamed, expands to Fifth Avenue BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comAnybody seeking proof that Naples is a veritable wine destination need look no further than The Naples Grape Escape Food, Wine & Beer Fest. Set to overtake Fifth Avenue Nov. 13-16, the multi-event festival started several years ago as a wine social and Rotary Club of Naples fundraiser at Wynns Market and evolved into Grapes & Apes, a wine tasting and auction that drew several hundred guests to The Naples Zoo every year. This year the Rotary Club and the Fifth Avenue South Business Improvement District have expanded and renamed the event and moved everything to the avenue, where a series of dinners and seminars will culminate in the first-ever Naples Grape Escape block party from 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15. Six blocks will be closed to traffic so visitors can revel in what is probably the events crowning achievement: streets lined with wine. Beer lovers should not despair, however, as more than two dozen craft brews will help ensure goodwill and friendship between wine and beer lovers. General admission to the block party is $25 for five tastings and $45 for 10 tastings; elite level admission packages range from $85 to $250. Leading up to the block party and on Sunday, Nov. 16, tipplers have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the best of Fifth Avenues cuisine, as more than 20 downtown restaurants are contributing to Grape Escape with chefs tables, wine seminars and special dinners paired with wine and beer. Prices range from $25 to $100. (Florida Weekly wine columnist Jerry Greenfield will present Boost Your Wine IQ, a seminar about how to swirl, sniff and sip from 5-6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14, at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. Mr. Greenfields column is on page C30 this week.) Proceeds from the Naples Grape Escape will benefit a variety of local organizations, including Collier County high schools, Meals of Hope, Gift of Life International and the Rotary Club of Naples own charitable initiatives. For a complete schedule of events, including pricing and the chance to purchase tickets online, visit napleswine.org.

My diet lately has consisted of whatever is at hand or quick to prepare, so I had a taste for some greens to erase the bad decisions of the weekend and m ove me into the week with more vim and vigor. The Capers Salad arrived prettily dressed on a white plate and accompanied by a miniature pumpkin muffin. Piled high with pepper-crusted chicken, grilled pears, candied pecans, strawberries and gorgonzola cheese on a bed of fancy greens, the salad felt both virtuous and a smidge indulgent thanks to the cakey, moist muffin. Lightly dressed with maple champagne vinaigrette, this meal was the perfect bridge between a breakfast on the run and what I vowed would be a nutritious and satisfying homemade dinner.

Among my wine geek friends, we just call them WOTYs. The list includes selections by the magazines editors, culled from the thousands of wines they sample and critique throughout the year. (I applied for that job. Didnt get it.) When the list comes out, collectors all over the world race to their cellars to see how many of the Top 100 wines they have. Its a sickness. The list is an excellent example of the classic good news/bad news joke. Good news: Many of the listed wines are great values, which is the whole purpose of this column. Bad news: others on the list can cost as much as a mortgage payment. More bad news: The minute the list comes out, the wines fly off the shelves, so if youre not right on top of things, there wont be any left. Good news: Many WOTYs are high production, so even ordinary people like us can get some. I think the WOTYs call into question the idea of wine ratings in general. Wines are sampled and scored on a scale of 100 points by all kinds of people and publications. Some of the critics are associated with magazines, while others work alone. Regardless, they all sample wines hundreds of them and tell us what they think. In short, these people have a lot of influence, as many wines live or die by the points they are assigned. Of course, theres nothing more personal than reacting to the taste of a wine. The proof is on the palate, and everybody has one. So when a critic gives a wine 90-plus points, theres no guarantee that you or I will agree. Want proof? Come to my house, and enjoy the spirited discussions between my wife and me about which wine should be enjoyed and which should be poured down the sink. De gustibus, said the Romans, non est disputandum. Translated loosely, it means you stick to your wine ratings, and Ill stick to mine. Another thing about ratings: Its clear that price isnt always proportional to quality. For example, Wine Spectators No. 1 WOTY a few years back was rated 95 points and cost around $55, while No. 50 was rated 98 points and cost $175. Go figure. Theres more. If a wine gets a good rating especially if its a less-expensive bottling the producer will put the rating on the foil capsule, a label sticker or a bottle hanger. Good ratings mean good sales. Poor ones can be disastrous. In any case, the minute the WOTY list is published, prices of the honored wines go through the roof. Its that old supply-and-demand thing: People want the best they can get for the least money. If a wine appears on the list with a rating of 94 points and a price tag of $12, good luck trying to find it. That being said, Ive been following this exercise for years and am a huge fan of buying well-considered wine for not much money. Ive compiled a list of some of my favorites that appeared in the Top 100 in past years and are still widely available. They offer great value (and a decent number of points) for not a lot of money. Hope this helps. Sample widely. Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough: While you can certainly find very fine, highly-rated New Zealand sauvignon blanc for less, Cloudy Bay offers elegance, subtlety and dimension. About $29. Gruet Blanc de Noirs New Mexico Non Vintage: New Mexico? Yup. Albuquerque. And itll knock the socks right off your feet. Its made in the champagne method, so if youre a fan of the bubbly, and you have $18, you might want to give it a try. Chateau Tanunda Shiraz Barossa Grand Barossa 2008: Australian shiraz is a big, mouth-filling, teeth-staining red, and almost always an incredible value. The Barossa Valley produces a flood of this stuff, and Ive never tasted one I didnt like. About $18. Questions? Comments? The Wine Whisperer loves emails.

Its what I would stuff the turkey with before we had kids, he says. Now its a side dish. FALL WILD RICE SALAD1 cups wild rice, cooked and chilled cup Swiss chard 1/3 cup roasted and chilled oyster mushrooms 2 tsp sherry wine vinegar 2 tsp olive oil A pinch of salt Combine ingredients and nish with 1/4 cup of pomegranate seeds for color and a pop of avor. MITCHELL the recipeMr. Murillo offers his original recipe for Cheesy Mashed Potatoes.CHEESY MASHED POTATOES4 lbs Idaho potatoes, scrubbed clean, peeled and quartered 2-3 cups milk Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to 1 cup shredded white American cheeseClean potatoes with a potato scrubber and peel into a bowl, saving the peels. Cut potatoes lengthwise into quarters. Place milk in 3-quart saucepan and bring to a slow simmer. Gently add potato peels to simmer while potatoes cook. Continue to watch and stir occasionally. If mixture reduces to half, turn heat to low.Put sliced potatoes into a large pot and cover with cold water (about inch over top of potatoes). Bring to a boil over mediumhigh heat and cook for 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander, letting the extra moisture evaporate for several minutes. Place the potatoes back in the large pot, cover with cold water, bring to a boil and cook until tender. This process removes the extra starch and water from the potatoes and intensi es the potato avor. Drain the potatoes in a colander and let the extra moisture evaporate for several minutes. Place potatoes in big bowl and mash a bit. Add about 1/4 cup of the milky peel mixture to the potatoes. Mash. Alternately add milky mixture a little bit a time and mash until the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Add the shredded cheese 1/4 cup at a time, mixing in with a spoon, until desired consistency and avor is reached. If desired, more milky mixture may be added. Yield: 6 to 8 servings MURILLO the recipeWhen Ms. Boet and her husband, Phillipe, started serving Thanksgiving dinner at Chez Boet several years ago, she asked for her favorite recipe from home: her mothers Pumpkin Cheesecake. Ive been baking it ever since for our restaurant guests, she says. Although I also make traditional French tarts with caramel, walnuts and chocolate, the Pumpkin Cheesecake is by far our bestseller.PUMPKIN CHEESECAKEFilling: 32 oz. cream cheese, softened at room temperature 15-oz. can organic pumpkin 1/4 cup sour cream 1 cups sugar 5 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk, room temperature 1 TBS vanilla extract 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp each ground ginger, ground cloves, allspice Crust: 10 graham crackers 1/4 cup sugar 4 TBS unsalted butter, melted Special requirements: One 10-inch springform pan, food processor, mixer For the crust:Pre-heat oven to 325. Butter or spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray the interior of springform pan.In food processor, pulse graham crackers and sugar.Melt butter and blend with graham cracker/sugar crumbs in mixing bowl until moistened and crumbly. Firmly press the crust mixture into the springform pan, evenly covering the bottom and approximately inch up the sides. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are golden brown. For the lling: In mixing bowl, beat softened cream cheese until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add sugar and beat on low speed just until blended. Add sour cream, pumpkin, vanilla and spices and mix until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing until each one is blended and scraping down the sides of bowl before adding the next egg. Do not over mix. Place springform pan with prepared crust on baking sheet. Pour lling into the pan and smooth out the top. Place a ramekin full of water on the sheet to add moisture in the oven. Bake for 1 hour, 15 minutes, until the sides are set but the center still jiggles slightly when you gently shake the baking sheet. Turn off the oven and leave cheesecake in the cooling oven for an additional hour before removing to a cooling rack. Run a knife around the edges to separate from the ring. Cover and put in refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight. Before serving, gently remove the ring. To serve, garnish each slice with a dollop of fresh-whipped cream. BOET NOLASKO ROLAND CUISINE SCENEChefs talk turkey before the Thanksgiving holiday BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comBefore they get caught up in Thanksgiving preparations at their restaurants, we caught up with some chefs to ask about their personal Turkey Day plans. Many rearrange their family traditions to incorporate their work schedules, and some even take advantage of it, like Crave Culinaires Brian Roland. We typically now do Thanksgiving either the Saturday or Sunday of that same week because we just cant get everyone together on Thanksgiving, Mr. Roland says about his family gathering to give thanks. Not only that, he adds, When I became a chef, Thanksgiving (with family) became a day that I could take off from cooking. My only job is to do the carving. Other working chefs have families who take advantage of their culinary expertise. Of course everyone wants me to do the cooking and I do but I try and keep it simple by sticking with traditional country cooking, says Jorge Nolasco, executive chef at Chapel Grill. Much like Mr. Rolands family has adapted, the Nolascos celebrate Thanksgiving on the Monday before the actual holiday, because come Turkey Day, Mr. Nolasco will be in the kitchen at Chapel Grill. Here are some other chefs reflections and recipes. Theyll all be on the job Thursday, Nov. 27 something for which they are grateful, as are those who plan to make reservations for the holiday meal, no doubt. Jeff Mitchell, The LocalI have Thanksgiving traditions from when I was growing up and some new ones that my wife, Cary, and I started when we moved down here. No matter what, theres always too much food. Thanksgiving starts a few days before, when I go to the farmers market to select the produce. I get excited, because this is when farmers start bringing some really great stuff to the market. Thanksgiving Day starts off with the Turkey Trot (a 5K run/walk sponsored by the Gulf Coast Runners). We have the joy of pushing our boys Luke and Truman in a stroller After breakfast and a shower, I start cooking. I start some stuff at my house and then I go over to my parents house and start other things there, because we need two ovens ... Everyone has a favorite dish and helps out with that dish except my Dad, whos on dishes after dinner. When we finally sit down together, we say prayers and go around the table saying what we are thankful for. For dinner we have, chicken soup with pastina, my moms pasta and sauce, followed by turkey and gravy, my grandmothers stuffing recipe, au gratin potatoes, veggies from the farmers market, cranberry sauce with tangerine rind and pumpkin pie. We eat pretty early so we can clean up and watch the Detroit Lions lose. Lisa Boet, Chez BoetGrowing up in central Illinois, our Thanksgivings were the original farmto-table experience. My mother would purchase a freshly butchered bird, and because my stepfather was an avid duck hunter, a version of wild duck was also part of the spread. My favorite contribution was to make a batch of pt as a cocktail-hour treat. We serve a similar version now in our restaurant. My mother and I worked side-byside the day before, prepping and cooking up a storm. One year when I was visiting home from Paris, my mother was not happy with her gravy. I went to the bar and grabbed a bottle of brandy and added a generous pour. She was amazed at how good that gravy tasted. That was a technique I had learned in France: Everything you cook tastes better when you add some liqueur or wine. Edgar Murillo, Three60 MarketI was introduced to Thanksgiving 15 years ago when I moved to Naples from Mexico. Immediately I was hooked and began experimenting with traditional Thanksgiving dishes of turkey, sage stuffing and mashed potatoes. Thanksgiving Day six years ago remains my most memorable; it was the first Thanksgiving dinner I prepared for my family.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com NOVEMBER 2014 LUXE LIVING 3SEE Q&A, 4 DESIGNER Q&AYOU KNOW YOUVE MADE IT WHEN YOUR project is noticed by The New York Times and the space is packed every night by the local glitterati. Edward Gary Shanabarger, owner of Edward Gary Design / Eclectic Home & Art, knows just how that feels. His stunning design of swanky-meetsSouthern chic in Hob Nob on Fifth Avenue is just one of many projects he has completed. And while there are many elegant and trendy places in Naples, in Hob Nob, Mr. Shanabarger is credited with dialing up the hip factor to Naples for the very first time. He has been in the event-and-design business for more than two decades, and like many talented designers, he began his career with creating weddings and special events for distinguished clients. His focus shifted to interiors and the rest is history. As the years go on, Mr. Shanabarger continues to help others see beauty in the world around them. Design is always evolving, and I, too, am evolving, and I am looking forward to new adventures in design. Stay tuned, he says. He took time to answer some design questions for LUXE. Q: Whats your favorite home-design trend right now, and whats next? A: The trend that is currently in is this scaled-back, minimal, streamline bare white or tone-on-tone aesthetic. I was into it for a minute, but realized a lot of it had to do with a suffering economy. Fabric mills stopped producing vibrant colors and exciting patterns. Now that things are looking brighter, I feel that design trends will include bold colors, layered patterns and textures a nod to opulent, yet well-edited design. Q: What architecture/design/build books or magazines do you recommend? A: As a designer, of course I read Architectural Digest. I have always found Veranda a great source for the South, however, fabulous fabrics and trendy lines tend to come from fashion, so watch the runways and read Elle Decor, GQ, Vogue. As for books, having a great design library is essential for educating yourself in global style. Q: If you could have a celebrity (or local) designer decorate your house, who would it be? A: Philippe Starck. EDWARD GARY SHANABARGER continues to evolve where dcor meets inspirationZOE HERNANDEZ / COURTESY PHOTO Naples 239.775.5100, 4600 Tamiami Trail E.

Sale Ends 11/30/14. 4 LUXE LIVING NOVEMBER 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLYQ: What type of decor would you most like to have in your home? A: Does any designer ever know what they truly want? I find myself wanting whatever I am working on at the time. Q: What was the most difficult project or home youve ever seen or worked on? What were some challenges you overcame? By contrast, what was your favorite place that you saw or worked on? A: I dont know if I would call it difficult, perhaps more challenging. I am currently working on a very high-end condo renovation where the client is very involved with every detail. Every piece of furniture or finish is carefully selected to provide not only form, but function. A study of light play is often required to see if colors change in different situations, and creating the perfect marriage of textiles and finishes. Many custom pieces are being manufactured globally, and organizing the entire picture of the final product can be quite tedious, but this is what makes the end result truly stunning. I would have to say my favorite space Ive worked on would be this current challenging project. I love a challenge, especially when the ideas are so inspired and pulled from the best artisans in the global design market at the moment. This project is slated for completion by February 2015. I also love working on commercial projects and was fortunate to work on the new Fifth Avenue restaurant Hob Nob with owners Michael and Lisa Hernandez to convey a restrained, rustic approach with a colorful explosion of pattern, color and texture, creating an atmosphere of casual artistic coolness. The decor is as delicious as the food. Q: Please share any advice you have for a homeowner embarking on a new-home construction or remodel. A: Make sure you have a reputable contractor! Pull photos from magazines or websites of spaces that you love. Collaborate with a professional designer, if even as a consultant, to make sure the materials you are using are tried and true.

Most are smaller than master bedrooms, difficult to decorate and hard to justify in the budget. But several area designers have made quick work of these challenging spaces, to the point that these guest quarters are the envy of their loftier master-bedroom cousins. One home in particular corners the market on cool guest accommodations. Usually in a home, there would be two guest rooms and a study, but a home we recently designed in North Naples has three guest rooms and a study,, says Robb & Stucky designer Tricia Lynch. Mrs. Lynch wanted to give the guest quarters a Florida feel casual but elegant and include some natural woven beds and some fun floral fabrics that make guests feel like they are on vacation. She made sure several aspects went SEE GUEST, 10 I suggest you dont ever put a mirror opposite of the bed, and dont overcrowd the room ...

When consulting with homeowners, I get an idea of what they want because ultimately they are the end user, so it is important they are happy. But if the plans dont flow, Ill dive in and make alternate suggestions, says Mrs. Lynch, whose suggestions are spot-on when it comes to creating rooms in which guests clamor to stay. I suggest you dont ever put a mirror opposite of the bed and dont overcrowd the room, because people are bringing luggage, and with the bedding ensembles we have now with all of the pillows, you need to be able to turn down the bed and store the pillows somewhere. She also suggests guest rooms always contain a chair or a bench somewhere for the guests to sit while they put on shoes or get dressed. In the case of the three guest-bedroom house, beautiful hues of blues and greens round out the dcor, including in the seating areas. Another must-have in a guest room is a good window treatment, essential for privacy, and nice towels and bedding but be careful not to over-accessorize with your own personal things. Guests wont be able to relax as easily with too many of the homeowners personal items in the room, she says. One of the most overlooked but most important aspects of designing the perfect guest room is lighting, especially functional lighting. Guests might want to read, and in the presence of a king bed, there should be a lamp on either side. In these three guest bedrooms, I like the way they flow together from the terracotta and artwork in the first bedroom to the fact that the bathrooms are compatible to each room since we had the luxury of each room having its own bathroom, Mrs. Lynch says about the cohesive nature of the entire guest quarters. We found things that were compatible to the room colorwise, one being very tropical and one coastal. Mrs. Lynch does a good job of pointing out the difference between tropical and coastal. Tropical, she says, looks more like Old Florida with bright colors and traditional bamboo and carved-wood elements, and some of the colors can be quite bright. By contrast, coastal will have more greens and blues, resemble more of a cottage-chic look and appear more updated. Coastal colors harmonize a little more than tropical. In the more masculine guest quarters, Mrs. Lynch loves the grass cloth in the bathroom, which adds a lot of texture and is striking alongside the copper mirrors. We also did a blue feature wall with a tall headboard with color behind the headboard and transom windows going across the room to offer a lot of light, she says. You always want to incorporate something from the house that feels cohesive, whether it is bringing one or two of the colors so it flows throughout. You dont want a very formal to very casual to very formal. Other good examples of keeping the flow between the common area to guest quarters can be found in two local Minto communities. The connecting media room across from the guest suite at Mintos Turnberry Grand model at TwinEagles also has a terrace that overlooks the golf course. In the Minto Plumeria home at the Isles at Collier Preserve, the guest suite opens out to the pool and summer kitchen. This homes guest quarters has its own private entrance and garage.Touches from other designersOne of Naples busiest designers has her own array of tips for creating a heavenly guest bedroom. Norris Home Furnishings designer Mary Beth BinkleyGill says with creativity, modest budget and mindful planning, homeowners can create the ultimate guest spaces. Go vertical in smaller spaces. Think tall. Homeowners can accentuate vertical lines by using furnishings that have a small footprint and significant height, Mrs. Binkley-Gill says. Armoires, poster beds, pretty chandelier or decorative fan draw the eye up, and a floor-to-ceiling bookcase is another tall choice that takes a small amount of floor space, makes the room look larger and adds interest. She also stresses adding dimension, which can include placing a floor mirror close to the wall, using tall, skinny mirrors over nightstands for the illusion of more space, using a cozy chair or chaise or including a settee or bench at the foot GUESTFrom page 8 COURTESY PHOTOSAbove and below: Guest rooms by Clive Daniel Home are sure to make visitors feel pampered, relaxed and most welcome.
or including a settee or bench at the foot of the bed. Like Mrs. Lynch, Mrs. Binkley-Gill says comfort is of the utmost importance. Norris Home Furnishings actually has a sleep specialist on staff to assist customers with mattress selection. Peggy Oberlin of Peggy Oberlin Interiors, Inc. recently completed a model in a condo at Bonita Bay. What is unique about it is the use of the non-colors white, gray and black with pops of orange accents, she says. The headboard wall is very simple to create but makes a strong focal point it is finished in a painted, applied molding with a border of grass cloth on the facade and a tone-on-tone wallpaper in the center, while the custom headboard is also wallpapered and has a decorative-trim edge. Mrs. Oberlin also favors the upcycled furniture brought into the design scheme, which includes an old Henredon dresser from a consignment shop. The dresser was given a new, more rustic facade and a pillow that has been embellished with antique buttons that is displayed on a semi-antique, bamboo chair that has been refreshed, she says. The mirror over the dresser was also a consignment find that was fauxfinished. The subject of Septembers LUXE Designer Q&A, talented Pamela Durkin, is known for her creative use of space in guest rooms. In one of her favorite guest-bedroom designs, the room has a textural, faux finish applied to the walls. The combing technique makes the walls look as if they are upholstered in grass cloth. The difference is there are no seams, so the finish is very consistent the beautiful cream tone is very soothing as it is set off by the striking dark finishes, Mrs. Durkin says. The bedding is all custom-designed and made, and because this client did not like ceiling fans, we opted to use a beautiful architectural light above the bed. In another guest bedroom she designed, the clients were adamant: they love color. A pink desk was the starting point for that room, and Mrs. Durkin says it was fun to add bold, bright patterns to the guest bed and window treatments, both of which were custom-designed. I am a big fan of using pieces that have meaning, and when we were installing this room, I discovered that the client had some parasols tucked in the closet from a trip, she says. She loved them, but didnt know what to do with them, so I decided to hang them above the bed. Now the room has a lot more personality and is a conversation piece. Daniel Lubner of Clive Daniel is a man whose design wisdom is becoming legendary. When it comes to designing magnificent guest rooms, he says: Great design will make the guest room feel as important as the master.

12 LUXE LIVING NOVEMBER 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen people hear the phrase Your concierge builder, most of us instantly know someone is talking about PBS Contractors and the man behind the mission, Russell Budd. This University of Florida graduate (and lifelong Gator fan) was honored as a Man of Distinction by Champions of Learning last year. But hes best known for the heart and soul he puts into his business. Mr. Budd brings to contracting a set of personal values that transcend most construction mores. The Naples native who was once quoted as saying I believe in hard work understands the factors involved in building in and around Naples, and the many challenges homeowners face in that process. Recently, his company completed a major, whole-house makeover in Terramar inside Olde Cypress that would put that philosophy to the test. The previous owner had a significant water leak, and although the plumbing was repaired, the interior walls and trim were not replaced before the home was put on the market for sale, he says. The home was left unoccupied for over two years. Mr. Budds clients met with his team, discussed the possibility of a remodel and, with his help, the clients realized the potential of the home. When planning a remodel, one of the most important considerations to tackle is answering the question, How do we live today? Our lifestyles have definitely changed over the last 10 to 15 years, he says. So when our clients look at an existing home, or look at the home they have lived in, we ask, How you are going to use the home? and the answer to that question is going to dramatically impact what changes are going to be effective. Remember kitchen desk spaces? Mr. Budd cites those as a clear example of a lifestyle change. Fifteen years ago, computers in the home became the norm, and we needed a place to house them and the large monitor. Boy, how far we have come, he says. Today, many of our homeowners are reclaiming the space back into the kitchen as more effective use of the space becomes necessary, and we are now taking our tablets outside and working on the lanai or on a lounge chair. Mr. Budd is known for thriving on challenges. In fact, when he received his Man of Distinction award, he listed rising up to meet challenges as one of his driving motivations. His team faced several challenges in this makeover, but that only makes the end result that much sweeter.

behind the drywall, and additionally, aging in place is becoming more commonplace, he says. By looking forward and doing a little planning, we can make the home we currently live in more adaptable to possible future use for wheelchair-access, and making areas like kitchens easier to access by having drawers in lieu of doors and shelves in our base cabinets. When asked which parts of this makeover were his favorites, Mr. Budds answers were typical of the man who has earned his livelihood enriching the lives of others. The removal of interior walls and totally making over the kitchen was by far my favorite aspect of this job, he says. By removing the interior walls and opening up the living space in this home, it better fit the way the family lives and enhances the beautiful views of the pool environment and the golf course.He also shared the more human side of remodeling and what it means to him. Another great aspect of this project was working out the details with the owner. The selection process is the creative time we have with our clients, and seeing how the selections they made in the showroom work in unison within a room is a great feeling.

THERES ALMOST NO BETTER WAY TO BECOME INSPIRED TO create your own luxury home than to look toward the Manhattan skyline along Fifth Avenue. Fortunately for Neapolitans, legendary designer Howard Slotkin can help transform a home without the homeowner buying a plane ticket. In Fifth Avenue Style, with photos by Tria Giovan, this visionary interior designer shares his own personal space and inspires other homeowners to beautify their own surroundings. What makes this book so exceptional is that while the authors incredible home is luxurious to the extreme, hes not at all pretentious and generously shares his appreciation for practical know-how and stresses the importance of workmanship in design. The level of sophistication in which Mr. Slotkin shares how he lives in his home extends to entertaining and to creating wonderful spaces no matter how awkward, small or challenging the space may be. HOMEBUYERS WHO MISSED THE OPPORTUnity to see Mediterras fully furnished Eloro luxury villa model last season will have another chance. London Bay Homes has started construction of a second Eloro model, designed to impress with a painted box beam ceiling, jumbo pebble stone flooring and tufted upholstered chairs in citrine tiger print. The three-bedroom, single-family villa model is in Lucarno, a neighborhood reminiscent of a European village within Mediterras garden district of fountains and foliage. Like the original Eloro, which sold for more than $1.6 million shortly after completion, the new model will have an open great room with dining and seating areas, a study and 3 baths in 3,380 square feet of living space. It will emphasize al fresco living with a wall of pocketing sliding doors opening the great room to outdoor living and dining areas, a summer kitchen and the courtyard pool. Interior design with clean, British Colonial overtones will be by Melissa Allen of Romanza Interior Design. She has selected a color palette of linen, paprika, smoke and citrine to emphasize the Eloros transitional style. Finishes will include the pebble stone floor in the lobby, glazed porcelain tile flooring in main living areas, granite and marble countertops and custom ceiling and wall treatments. The kitchen will have painted white cabinetry, river white granite countertops and a linear Icelandic glass mosaic tile backsplash. The Eloro is on target for completion in January. London Bay Homes is the exclusive builder in Lucarno, a neighborhood of cobblestone streets, fountains and 71 lakefront villas accented with tile, stone entry walls and authentic Old World architectural features. Nine customizable floor plans offer two to five bedrooms and 2,900 to more than 4,000 square feet of interior living space. Home and homesite packages in Lucarno are priced from the $900,000s. The entrance to Mediterra is off Livingston Road in North Naples, two miles north of Immokalee Road. For more information, call 949-8989 or visit mediterranaples.com.

Bay Design Store BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWALKING INTO BAY DESIGN STORE IN THE Third Street South district in Naples, the first word that comes to mind for many homeowners is covet. Covet, covet, covet you can almost hear it whispered in your ear. With so many beautiful things everywhere the eye can see, its only natural that shoppers would desire everything within reach. Lush couches, playful accent pieces, serious collectibles, stunning lamps and unique tables all play into the stores charm. Bay Design Store is also a comfortable place luxurious to be sure, but welcoming at the same time. Michigan native Susan Bay is the founder and president of Bay Design Store. With the help of Design Director James V. Kunstel, ASID, the store and studio have expanded three times during the past decade, including two expansions in the past couple of years alone. Mr. Kunstel has been a Bay Design Store interior design partner since 1981. Mrs. Bay has a lot of experience with successful design stores. She operated her Bay Design Store in Ann Arbor, Mich., for more than 25 years in addition to the Naples location. Though she is known for commercial and residential interior-design projects in Michigan, Mrs. Bay is best known for the stunning residences she has outfitted in Naples. Her eye for color and style is recognizable, what she calls new traditional. It is inspired by colors of the waves, beach, sky and shells surrounding us, and it is my desire to have the store be a reflection of our location and its remarkable environment, she says. The colors and themes from the sea can be found in most all our settings throughout the store. Mrs. Bay says she would like to think her style is timeless and classic, although it also is based on structure. A well-designed, beautiful room takes great focus, listening skills, brainstorming and just the right amount of creativity, she says. Its also a really fun and invigorating process. Here in Southwest Florida, we are combining all shades of blues and then tossing in enriching colors such as tangerine, coral, lime and linens. While the whites and creams still dominate in upholstery and in wall color, she says, the emergence of fresh colors and crisp, watercolor-inspired patterns are making their splash in window treatments, toss pillows, artwork and accessories. The store reflects what Mrs. Bay and Mr. Kunstel are seeing in a major design movement of all three areas of style, color and textiles. There is a convergence of old and new designs, juxtaposition of scale, and runaway colors the rich variety of textiles are mingled together to balance this new, high-fashion direction, she says. The store is more like a home for dcor shopping than a sterile store environment. Each room is arranged beautifully to be both inviting and realistic so visitors can see what the furnishings might look like in their own homes. The furniture begs for bodies to take a rest, and there are many pieces that add a splash of color and character to any room, such as the aqua sea creature sculptures. A set of large blue and white Asian vases displayed on the coffee table in one of the rooms adds depth to an otherwise-empty space, and hearty dressers serve as platforms for all manner of charming accents. Among the best finds at Bay Design Store are the many gorgeous pillows strategically placed throughout the furnishings. Mr. Kunstel also subscribes to the new-traditionalist perspective and is known for creating personality-appropriate rooms that invigorate and are livable. He and Mrs. Bay keep the showrooms constantly changing, but on the next page are a few items to inspire a trip to the store: Bay Design Store 326 13th Ave. S.
