During the process of investigation with DCF, sometimes parents and children can be separated for up to a month or longer without visitation or communication, Ms. Bond says. Thats traumatic for parents, but especially for the children who are living in a foster or group home, she says. The Family Bond will be located on Horseshoe Drive, near other government services parents are likely to utilize, and will have hours that extend past business hours.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 COMMENTARY Classical music for rednecks, roustabouts and the disenfranchisedClassical mothertruckin music. Now that I have your attention, let me suggest that calling the music of George Gershwin classical or the music of his elder, Charles Ives, or the music of his admirer and musical progeny, Leonard Bernstein is like calling a train whistle the same thing as a cathedral bell. Its true in the loosest possible way. They both ring out. I learned that from Nir Kabaretti, the new, Israeli-born conductor of the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, which you should drive to hear from Palm Beach or Charlotte or Collier or Alva or Alaska to watch, even if you dont like classical music. Why? because hes just so good looking. And the orchestra is so damn sophisticated and good looking. Thats my opinion. And they sound pretty good, too. Still, you have to wonder if Gershwin and, say, Bach, are even remotely similar, just like you wonder if Bob Dylan and whoever wrote the old IrishScottish song, Parting Glass, are two of a kind. Heres Dylan in his 41-year-old song, Tangled Up In Blue: So now Im goin back again,/ I got to get to her somehow/ All the people we used to know,/ theyre an illusion to me now. And heres Parting Glass, which dates back at least 400 years to the 17th century, and probably earlier: But since it falls unto my lot that I should rise and you should not good night and joy be with you all. We should always have classical music washing around us, whatever it is, and whether we like it or not. Its alchemy. Its magic and medicine. It forms the bones of civilized society. But proving that public radio should always play it as I think it should, and as it doesnt and proving that you and your kids and friends and yourself should get up off your behinds and attend a live performance of orchestral classical music? Well, good luck. Yes, you. You in the spa or the mall. You bagging the groceries at Publix, or you in the community center or the diner or the lobby of The Breakers. You in your pick-up truck, with your customized tool box and your rifles and fishing gear and hay bales. You at the bar of The Celtic Ray in Punta Gorda, where most people know Parting Glass by heart, not to mention Bob Dylan. Or you in command of a nice nonprofit, or you in the county government building working the phones for a commissioner, or you in the Army or the Navy now home on leave, or you in the seventh-grade class of Mrs. Edwards K-through 8 public school. Yes, you. Its like proving to an Eskimo that lying under a palm tree on a warm beach should always be the option of choice when food is scarce and the weather gets nippy. Its not that easy to do. But its true: you need to go hear some classical music preferably music performed by the Southwest Florida Symphony, or the Palm Beach Symphony, the Naples Philharmonic, the Charlotte Symphony or the Gulf Coast Symphony. In a pinch and if you have to, you could even go hear the New York Philharmonic, or the Chicago Symphony. But just go to the symphony. Once. Twice. A hundred times. Either that, or buy a ticket on an airline that has not yet arrived to offer flights out of Miami, Tampa or anywhere else: TTA, the acronym for Time Travel Airlines. Thats the ride I took the other night by traveling across the county where I live, from chickens and horses and palmetto scrub about 20 miles, to the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall on the campus of Florida SouthWestern State College. And there was Nir Kabaretti in his inaugural performance of the Southwest Florida Symphony taking us places we havent been lately. He took us into New York in the 1920s, with Gershwins morning coming up from the streets in clarinet-whine of dawn, with the piano cacophony of train brakes and shutters rising and busses and cars and people moving, and the American dream unfolding. He showed us immigrant lives breaking open a new day only three months after The New York Times (on Nov. 10, 1924) reported that Adolf Hitler, an unknown young troublemaker at the time, had gone missing in Germany to avoid persecution by the authorities. He took us into the heart of love and mean misunderstanding riding on the back of joy and hope in the West Side Story of the late 1950s: the Sharks and the Jets, the old and new, the black and brown and white, the rich and poor and the you and the me. And he showed us the American opus in music defined as classical but powered by country or blues or folk in the Second Symphony, written by Charles Ives at the age of about 25, but not performed until Leonard Bernstein got ahold of it 50 years later, in New York. Im tellin you, classical music. Doesnt matter whether you like it. Either get there, or be square. t w m d roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Europes problem with immigrationThe New York Times ran a front-page article after the Charlie Hebdo massacre on Europes dangerous moment. As terrorists rampaged through Paris, ultimately killing 17, what was the cause of this particular alarm? That anti-immigration parties in Europe might gain.The Times article captured perfectly the reaction of polite opinion to the Paris attacks, which is driven almost as much by fear that someone might notice that Europe has an immigration problem as it is by fear of the terrorism itself. Europes anti-immigration parties run the gamut, from the loathsome (Greeces Golden Dawn), to the unsavory (Frances National Front), to the more or less respectable (Britains UKIP). What they all have in common is that they benefit from the refusal of mainstream parties to admit the obvious: If a country is manifestly having trouble assimilating the immigrants it already has, it shouldnt add to their numbers willy-nilly. Much more important than solidarity and unity stirring as those things are, exemplified in the massive march in Paris would be a dose of honesty and realism on this issue. The case of France is stark. Roughly 12 percent of its population is foreign-born, about the European average, according to the Migration Policy Institute. But it also has a particularly high percentage of descendants of immigrants. Because of Frances colonial history in Algeria and other countries in the Maghreb, many of them are Muslim. It has the largest Muslim population of any Western European country, both in absolute numbers and in percentage terms. These immigrants have tended to cluster in the suburbs of Paris, where they have become self-reinforcing religioethnic islands in the broader French sea. These areas are not just alienated from the French state; they are actively hostile to it. Although Frances problem has peculiarly French characteristics, a version of the Paris attacks easily could have happened in Britain, Sweden, the Netherlands or Germany. They, too, have Muslim populations that, in some areas, havent fully integrated. Why does the United States not have the same problem (although it has experienced its own homegrown attacks)? Its assimilationist machinery, for all its flaws, is in better working order. It is an open, economically dynamic society. But this is partly a function of numbers. Immigrants to the U.S. still largely come from Christian countries and dont feel the powerful pull of a religious identity putting them at odds with their new country. This is a rather basic point: The quantity of immigration inevitably affects the quality of assimilation. The elites reflex on immigration is always to say more. The populations of many European countries want to say less. Their case is stronger after the horrors of the last week, although much intellectual and political energy will be devoted to denying that the Paris attacks had anything to do with immigration or Islam. Addressing a long-ago crisis in Athens, Demosthenes said of those demanding to know his alternative, I will first give them this answer the most just and true of all Do not do what you are doing now. On immigration, that is the counsel that Europe needs to hear, and to heed. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The other CharliesThe massacre at Charlie Hebdo, and the subsequent killing of a policewoman and mass murder at the Hyper Cachet kosher market, shocked the world. Young fanatics with automatic weapons unleashed a torrent of violence and death, fueled by zealous intolerance. At the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, the satiric newsmagazine, 12 were murdered and 11 wounded. The victims were guilty of nothing more than expressing ideas. Certainly, true to the point of satire, many of the ideas were very offensive to many people in this case, caricatures of the prophet Muhammad. In the wake of the violence, people from around the world expressed solidarity with the victims, and with the people of France. Among the world leaders who flocked to Paris to condemn the attacks were some of the worst perpetrators of repression of journalists, all too often Arab and Muslim journalists. Reporters Without Borders, also known as Reporters Sans Frontieres, or RSF, is based in Paris, not far from the offices of Charlie Hebdo. Word of the attack quickly made it to the staff there. Lucie Morillon, RSF program director, was one of the first people on the scene after the massacre at Charlie Hebdo. I spoke to her in New York City, just a day after she attended last Sundays solidarity march in Paris, which drew more than 1 million people. She recounted the events of Wednesday, Jan. 7: We were having a meeting ... a colleague came in, he said: Theres something huge. It looks like there had been shots fired at Charlie Hebdo, and there might be people dead. It was just complete shock, completely surreal. They raced to the scene of the massacre. Morillon went on: There were still bullets on the ground. It was just very chaotic. We were just wondering whos dead, what happened. And a man left the office, and he just went into President (Francois) Hollandes arms. He burst into tears, Charb est mort, Charb is dead. He was speaking of Stephane Charbonnier, Charlie Hebdos editor. On Sunday, the day of marches across France, which drew close to 4 million people, the group stated in a press release, Reporters Without Borders welcomes the participation of many foreign leaders in todays march in Paris in homage to the victims of last weeks terror attacks and in defense of the French republics values, but is outraged by the presence of officials from countries that restrict freedom of information. The group stated it was appalled by the presence of leaders from countries where journalists and bloggers are systematically persecuted such as Egypt, Russia, Turkey and United Arab Emirates. Photos and video of the world leaders standing, locked arm in arm, leading the massive march, raced around the planet. Much ado was made in the United States of the absence of any high-level Obama administration official. Even though Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris that day, inexplicably, he didnt show up for the march. Egypts Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry was there, whose government has imprisoned many journalists, most notably three from Al-Jazeera who have been held for more than a year now: Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed. The Saudi Arabian ambassador to France also showed up at the march. Two days earlier, his government flogged the blogger Raif Badawi. He was sentenced to 1,000 lashes, but the Saudi monarchy is administering 50 lashes per week. Delphine Hagland, the U.S. director of Reporters Without Borders, explained, They decided to divide the 1,000 lashes in different sessions because they were afraid that he would be killed. It has now been reported that the world leaders, locked arm in arm, were not in the march at all, but were gathered for a photo opportunity on a closed street, away from the protest, under guard. Quite simply, it was the people who led that day, not the leaders. Je Suis Charlie, or I am Charlie, was the battle cry of many. Others tweeted or held signs that read, I am not Charlie, condemning the violence without endorsing Charlie Hebdos caricatures. A Muslim woman held a sign, Je Suis Juif, I am Jewish, in solidarity with the Jewish victims. Others held signs that read Je Suis Ahmed for Ahmed Merabet, the French Muslim police officer who was killed outside the magazine offices. Close to 4 million people took to the streets of France last Sunday, demanding a more peaceful society, one in which press freedom and religious tolerance overwhelm violence and hatred.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 ROOTED IN NAPLESA round of applause for the young Naples Performing Arts Center Ive always been fascinated by the stuff that makes ambitious kids. Are they born that way? Bred that way? When I was a pre-teen, I thought a good days work was filling out my inspiration board and burrowing into my room for an uninterrupted evening away from my parents. As far as I know, my peers here in town were as shortsighted as I was: I dont know anyone who turned her friendship bracelet skills into a multimillion dollar company or who medaled in the Olympics. Today, Naples seems to afford more opportunities to its youth than it did 20 years ago. Now were the place to be for kids who have stage aspirations and many who do participated last weekend in an intensive workshop at the fledgling Naples Performing Arts Center. About 25 of the centers older students received coaching from Broadway stars Mandy Gonzalez (Elphaba in Wicked), Molly Jobe (Katherine from Newsies) and famed choreographer Dell Howlett, all members of Young Performers of America, a consortium of Broadway professionals who help train the next generation of performers. I love the fact that our kids are going to see first-hand how to really take their dreams and performances to the next level, says Lori Oliver, who founded the center not quite four years ago. I made a commitment that I would provide the best education for these kids that I could possibly provide. When I visited the center a few months ago to talk with kids who were in rehearsal for their production of Grease!, I was a little taken aback by their commitment and nerve. These kids spend most of their afternoons in the studio for vocal, dance and acting training and often report to Miami for auditions, classes and gigs and several of them travel from Lee and Charlotte counties for Ms. Olivers services. Considering the vast amount of time her students devote to their craft, its not surprising Ms. Oliver drafted Young Performers of America to optimize her students efforts with an intense workshop this year rather than take them back to Atlanta for a third-year sweep of the Junior Theater Festival. Its a once in a lifetime opportunity for these kids to be coached by huge stars, she says. Its going to encourage them to dream bigger and instill confidence that their dreams are attainable. These stars started out just like these kids are. Every time I speak to Ms. Oliver, I wonder when I can send my young children to her center, just to breathe the air and maybe catch whatever bug has smitten her students. If anything, Im just grateful the town I grew up in now has people like Ms. Oliver providing opportunities for my kids and others who might have secret talents that just need discovery and encouragement. Lindsey Nesmith is a Naples native who looks forward to the day her 4-yearold daughter can appreciate Fiddler on the Roof. She was disappointed when her older son preferred to be age-appropriate and bypassed Fiddler in favor of Annie.COURTESY PHOTOActress Mandy Gonzalez, who performed as Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway, coaches aspiring young actors at the Naples Performing Arts Center at part of an intensive weekend workshop led by Young Performers of America.VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYLori Oliver, far left, coaches her students during a rehearsal for their production of Grease! last fall. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com WOW!$39 NEW PATIENT SPECIAL Necessary X-Rays Exam ConsultationMUST PRESENT COUPONSOME RESTRICTIONS APPLY.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 and rewards of being entrepreneurs. They shared some of the stories behind their businesses and what they learned in the course of starting them.A cool $12 million Louis Bruno planned on playing college baseball. But one high school summer in Fort Myers, in which a serious hamstring injury had put that career on hold, he worked for an air-conditioning company, starting as a helper, carrying tools and sweating in attics. He went back again the summer of his senior year, and although he never did go on to college, he excelled as a repairman and salesman. He stayed in the business, learning enough to found his own company in December 2012. After that, growth skyrocketed for Bruno Air Conditioning, which is based in Bonita Springs. Mr. Bruno recently turned 26, and his now $12 million per year business sells and services residential air conditioning, heating and duct systems in Southwest Florida, and has commercial clients statewide. Mr. Bruno plans to grow into Georgia and Texas next, he said, and the business on pace to make sales upwards of $15 million in 2015. It employs roughly 100 people. Although there are myriad airconditioning companies in SWFL, Mr. Bruno said he began to recognize as a teenager working for an A/C company that he could compete in the industry by simply (if not easily) offering skilled and honest services. He found that one customer, for example, needed a part that cost $250 when another business recommended thousands of dollars in repairs. So a light bulb went off that if you treat people fair, provide them with a good experience and you dont have any hidden or concealed agenda per se, than you can grow exponentially, grow through the customer referral, he said. The companys headquarters is a 17,000-square-foot offices and warehouse in Bonita Springs that Mr. Bruno said it is already outgrowing. He set out to change an industry he described as too often set in its ways and complacent about finding ways to improve. I started with the goal to do things different and for the better, he said. Advertise better, provide a better experience, market better, brand better. And there was a lot of opportunity for it because the local guys, theyve been in business for 60 years, theyve got umpteen customers, there was really no need. So as I came in with an objective mind and really a will to do things better there was tons of opportunity. For employees, that means holding training sessions every morning from 7:30 to 9; providing them with full health and dental coverage, long-term disability and life insurance; and offering workers no-interest loans to help with closing costs on a home, car down payments, and tools. One of his proudest accomplishments so far has been developing an A/C unit specially suited for the SWFL environment by securing a deal with the global manufacturer Trane. The region has a high failure rate for A/C units, Mr. Bruno explained, because of the combination of power surges, heat, humidity, salt and, if Im being blunt, a lack of standard for how units are serviced. The Louis Bruno Signature Series is a combination of Tranes innovations plastic parts to prevent rust and his own that counter Southwest Floridas natural habitat. The point is to make air conditioners last as long as possible here. When Mr. Bruno first pitched the idea to Trane, telling them, I know how to make your plastic unit last longest in our climate, they turned him down. He pitched it again, and finally a third time, the proverbial charm. Trane agreed to add Bruno Airs features that help protect it from our environment, and a 10-year warranty. All this has left him for little time to think about old pastimes like baseball. Any free time I have I spend with my wife (Rachael) and son, he said. His day starts at 4:30 a.m. with a trip to the gym. He stays at the office until around 7 p.m. Working out is probably my personal time, he said. Insuring a better lifeRich Mathews got an MBA and was living in Chicago. He had landed a job traveling for a large company, selling plastics throughout the Midwest where they would be made into things like shampoo bottles and truck bed liners. But effort didnt necessarily equate to income. So I decided I wanted to take a different career path, said Mr. Mathews, who is 37. Having grown up in Tampa, where his father was a State Farm insurance agent, he decided to become one as well. And in 2007, at the end of the housing boom, Estero looked like a goldmine, a market in need of State Farms auto, home, health and life insurance, and some financial products. He opened the Rich Mathews State Farm Agency in July of that year. I saw all this new construction, all this growth, nice homes, and it wasnt so densely populated, he explained. I felt like there was a lot of room for growth. In spite of a recession that kicked in just as he was starting, Mr. Mathews has for the past five years been in the top 50 of 18,000 State Farm agents in the U.S. based on car insurance sales and employs 10 to 12 people. But getting started wasnt always easy. A single dad, Mr. Mathews moved here with his young son, who is now 11. Sometimes we wouldnt leave the office until 9 or 10 oclock at night, and I felt terrible about it, Mr. Mathews said. So I would take him to the park in the middle of the night. It would be 10 oclock at night and we would do swinging and wed do merry-go-round and play games at night and I felt terrible about it. But what that would do is really give me drive to want to be successful so that I could be normal, so that I could leave work early, I could pick him up early, I could come into work late. These days he makes sure to watch his sons baseball and basketball games and, when he can, travel. I went to Bangkok over Christmas, New Years, he said. Ive done Rio. London. I just feel like when you go to these places it challenges your thinking and it forces you out of your comfort zone. You eat things you wouldnt normally eat, you go places you wouldnt normally go and I just think you feel alive No schedule. I dont have an agenda of any kind. I wake up and see where it takes me. I just try to have fun and go until Im tired and then I go to sleep and I wake up the next day and do the same thing.Our shrimp are guaranteed to catch fish or die tryingWhen Bobbie Leahey saw there was shop space available in downtown Punta Gorda right on the harbor she thought of her teenage son. Then she opened a bait and tackle shop. My son, he loves to fish, she said. My mother was like, I think it would be a good idea and something that you can pass down to your son. Hes always wanted to be a captain and we used to go to the Keys as a family.

He founded Crave Culinaire in Naples, a boutique catering company that started out serving the gastronomical elite, offering in-home dining experiences for any occasion. It quickly grew, easily beating his sales expectations each of the first two years. As owner and executive chef, he employs eight full-time people and about 50 part-time ones, allowing for a team that includes not just gourmet food but servers, bartenders, multimedia entertainment and embellishments like flowers. Weve cooked on yachts, weve cooked in airplane hangers, he said. Ive been up to New Hampshire and New York to do some events. Whats fun about us is were really mobile. Adding a liquor license helped fuel growth, as did word of mouth. A cocktail party for 40 became a holiday party for 100. Soon he was serving galas and special events for hundreds. Over the past few years through word of mouth and some amazing exposure in the community weve been partnering with some great people and it has launched our business into more than I dreamed, he said. But it hasnt always been a cakewalk. We were preparing for an event for 450 people and there was a brown out in Naples for like a day so we had no electricity and we were 24 hours away from the event, Mr. Roland recalled. So we rented a refrigerated truck, got butane burners and we just kept the show rolling. Mr. Roland lives in Naples with his girlfriend, Nicole Black, and their cat, Paisley Roux.Managing property with a sense of hospitality When Brad Phelps acquired a boutique association and property management company in Naples from an older married couple who had for years served well-off seasonal clients closer to their own age he wondered what these new clients would think of him: young, redheaded, and eager to integrate new computer technology into the business. And of course here comes the young entrepreneur whos acquired a company that they have grown to love, he said. So he decided to slowly integrate new technology into Anchor Associates Inc., even just using email to its full potential. But he found instead that his clients, people who run homeowner and condo associations, were also eager to embrace the changes. We were scared to roll out too much change and technology but in fact they were wanting that and the feedback was more the sooner the better. Mr. Phelps, who is 33, is originally from Chebanse, Ill., 60 miles south of Chicago. Now he lives in South Fort Myers with his partner of 12 years, Ryan Frost. He discovered Southwest Florida and Florida Gulf Coast University after his grandparents moved from his hometown to Cape Coral. In 2003, he earned a bachelors at FGCU. With real estate sales booming he became licensed in the industry. Later, he worked in the hospitality sector for resort style properties not unlike some of those Anchor now manages. Thats where the passion comes from is the hospitality side of it, he said. In May 2006, he founded his first business, a real-estate brokerage, Phelps Realty Services, which still operates under its own name. Anchor Associates serves Collier County with its corporate office in Naples and is beginning to grow in Lee County, having opened an office in Bonita Springs, too. Since starting in February 2012, Anchors sales have grown by about 40 percent, and they have increased staff to 12, almost doubling the number of people. The success has been due to their personalized service, Mr. Phelps believes, in serving different types of residential associations as well as commercial clients. When theyre not working, he and Mr. Frost enjoy boating, visiting wine country, and skiing (especially in Park City, Utah).

The center also hosts the screening of a short film focusing on local Holocaust survivors on Tuesday, Jan. 27, at Naples Regional Library. At 4:30 p.m. Sunday, awards will be presented to the top three winners of the centers fifth annual Student Art Competition. Inspired by the theme of Hope, Southwest Florida middle and high school art students submitted entries in a variety of mediums. Their works will be on display in the museum for several weeks. At 5 p.m. Sunday, following the student awards presentation and reception, Holocaust survivor Cesare Frustaci will share the story of how Italian authorities first split up his family by sending him and his Hungarian-Jewish mother back to Budapest, leaving his Italian father behind. Mother and son were ultimately separated a few years later when she was taken by the Nazis. Mr. Frustacis father, Italian composer Pasquale Frustaci, wrote the song Tu, Solamente Tu, about the pain he endured at parting with his wife. American bandleader Glenn Miller orchestrated a version of the song for the U.S. Army Band in 1944, naming its English translation You, Fascinating You. The Holocaust Museum and Education Center of Southwest Florida is in a strip center at 4670 Tamiami Trail N. Regular hours are 12:30-5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 1-4 p.m. on weekends.

The recordings were originally made as part of the centers oral history project. Naples Regional Library is at 650 Central Ave. Admission to the film screening at the library and to the student art awards reception and Mr. Frustacis presentation at the center is free, but space is limited and reservations are required.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA18 WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 Spidey sense gets realAmong the breakthroughs demonstrated by the computer chip company Intels RealSense system is a cocktail dress from Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht that not only senses the wearers mood, but also acts to repel (or encourage) strangers who might approach the wearer. Sensors (including small LED monitors) measure respiration and 11 other profiles, and if the wearer is stressed, artistic spiderleg epaulets extend menacingly from the shoulder to suggest that intruders keep their distance (in which case the dress resembles something from the movie Aliens) or, if the wearer feels relaxed, the legs wave invitingly. The experimental spider dress was showcased at Januarys Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.Government in action Because Congress and presidents often change their minds, NASA recently continued to build on a $349 million rocket testing tower in Mississippi for a moon project that had been canceled back in 2010. The now-idle tower sits down the road from a second rocket testing tower being built for its replacement mission an asteroid project. Critics, according to a December Washington Post examination, blame senators who believe it smarter to keep contractors at work (even though useless) because, Congress and the president might change their minds yet again. Said a high-profile critic, We have to decide ... whether we want a jobs program or a space program. NASAs inspector general in 2013 identified six similar mothballed projects that taxpayers continue to maintain. Un-government: About 240 of the 351 police departments in Massachusetts claim their SWAT and other specialty operations are not government services, but rather not-for-profit corporate activities and are thus entitled to avoid certain government obligations. Even though their officers have the power to carry weapons, arrest people and break down doors during raids, these law enforcement councils refuse to comply with government open-records laws for civilian monitoring of SWAT activities. The latest refusal, by the 58 police agencies of the North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, was filed in state Superior Court in December.DIY policing in Seattle: A Seattle Times columnist suffered a smash-andgrab break-in of his car in October, but was brushed off by the Seattle Police Department and told simply to go file an insurance claim. However, he and his energetic 14-year-old daughter located the perpetrators themselves by GPS and called for police help, only to be chastised by the dispatcher, warning that they could get hurt. Only when a local crimefighting TV show adopted the case, along with the suburban Sammamish, Wash., police department, was the gang of thieves finally pursued and apprehended (resulting in charges for hundreds of smash-and-grab thefts). (Bonus: One alleged perpetrator was quoted as saying the thefts were undertaken because we knew the police wouldnt do anything.) Wait, what? Ms. Connie Lay passed away in Aurora, Ind., in November, leaving a last will and testament that calls for her German shepherd, Bela, to be promptly buried with her even though Bela is still alive and peppy. Ms. Lay preferred sending Bela to a certain shelter in Utah, but if that is not possible or involves too much expense (judgments to be decided by a close friend, not publicly named), Bela is to be euthanized. At press time, the friend still had not decided. Mother of All Surgeries: After 15 months of faulty diagnoses, Pam Pope, 65, finally got the (bad) news: a rare, slowmoving cancer of the appendix, pseudomyxoma peritonei. The malignancy was so advanced that her only hope was the removal of all organs that she could possibly do without. In a six-surgeon, 13-hour operation in May 2014 at Hampshire Clinic in Basingstoke, England, Pope parted with her appendix, large bowel, gall bladder, spleen, womb, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix and most of her small bowel. She has endured massive chemotherapy, is on a nightly drip for hydration, and still remains frail, according to a December report in Londons Daily Mail. When someone swiped the iPhone of Adam Wisneski, 31, on Jan. 2, he rode his bicycle to Chicagos Shakespeare District police station to file a stolen-property report. He parked the bike inside the door, filled out the form, prepared to leave and noticed the bike was missing. He told an amused officer he needed another form. (Officers on duty said perhaps a homeless man who was in the station took it and are making an effort, said Wisneski, to find it.) What researchers do The natural enemy of the hawkmoth (for 65 million years) is the bat, but thanks to a recent study by biologists at Boise State University and the University of Florida, we know the reason why so many hawkmoths are able to avoid their predator: They signal each other by rubbing their genitals on their abdomens, which somehow mimics bats own highfrequency sounds, thus jamming the bats aural ability to detect the hawkmoths locations. Professors Jesse Barber and Akito Kawahara, working in Malaysia, tethered a hawkmoth to a wire and then tracked a bat, using slow-motion cameras and high-definition microphones, painstakingly examining the results for a 2014 journal article. Bringing the Total Number of Cow Sounds to Three: A team from Britains University of Nottingham and Queen Mary University of London found (according to a December BBC News report) that cows make two distinctly different call sounds to their calves, depending on whether the calves are nearby (low-frequency mooing, with mouth closed) or separated (higher frequency). The team said it spent 10 months digitally recording cow noises, then a year analyzing them by computer. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Bonds current employer, and Childrens Advocacy Center of Collier County. Both operate Monday through Friday and only during business hours. If the parent has a job or if the child is school age, that really limits a visit, Ms. Bond says. Ideally, The Family Bond will be open weekdays until 8 p.m. and will have limited hours on Saturday and Sunday. About 10 visitation rooms will be equipped with activities that encourage interaction between parents and children and enable parents to practice the new skills many of them are learning in court-ordered parenting classes. Ms. Bond would eventually like to incorporate family dinner visitation into the center. Since a lot of visitations will be happening around dinner time, there will be a sense of normalcy, she says. A lot of our families dont have family dinner time in real life, so role modeling can be done and we can show them what family dinner time can be like. Trained monitors will be in each room. The facility will also offer a neutral space for parents who are embroiled in custody battles to drop off their children without interacting with an ex-spouse. Ms. Bond has the articles of incorporation and has filed for 501(c)(3) IRS designation for The Family Bond. Its currently considered a Florida charity, which means donations made to date do not qualify for a tax deduction. Forming a board of directors and gaining 501(c)(3) status are the steps preceding major fundraising efforts so donors can reap the writeoff benefit of supporting the organization. The Family Bond will use paid employees and volunteers to staff its services. Ms. Bond plans to utilize the countys Guardian Ad Litem program and local volunteers who have already gone through background checks and safety screenings. Id like to employ people who are in the education system, she says. Theyve already been background checked, they know children, theyre aware of child development and what should be going on. Once The Family Bond is off the ground, Ms. Bond plans to leave her position at Family Preservation Services and devote herself full-time to the facility. According to Youth Haven, Collier Countys only residential emergency shelter for children, 2,752 Collier County children were the subjects of maltreatment and abuse investigations in 2013, and 146 of them were placed in foster care or relatives homes. To inquire about supporting The Family Bond with a donation or serving on its founding board of directors, call Ms. Bond at 825-4003 or email email@example.com.

Pave the way to a happy retirementRetirement is one of the biggest chapters of the American Dream, yet it can also be one of the most challenging times of life. In fact, 50 percent of retirees say their old life with blaring alarm clocks and career pressure was better than retirement, and the divorce rate is rising among baby boomer retirees even as its falling for all other age groups. Most people focus on acquiring enough money to allow them to retire comfortably and on deciding where they want to live. They dont think about three fundamental aspects of a happy retirement that show up right after the newness wears off. Find out what those three things are during a free seminar at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28, at Clive Daniel Home, 2777 Tamiami Trail N.

Students can apply for Hurricane Island Outward BoundCollier County students between the ages of 15-17 are invited to apply for the spring break session of Hurricane Island Outward Bound, a wilderness expedition that builds young leaders through activities that include sailing, snorkeling, and swimming. Participants are selected based on individual merit and receive full scholarship support to attend the program March 14-21. Applicants must demonstrate leadership potential in their academic, athletic and/or social lives. Applications are due by Jan. 31 and consist of three parts: a letter of intent explaining why the student would be a good participant, and two letters of reference from non-family members. For more than 50 years in locations around the country, Outward Bounds five core programs have been changing lives, building teams and transforming schools. The Hurricane Island program in the Everglades awards nearly $500,000 each year to put more than 150 students through the course. Outward Bound changed my life in a way that no other person or group has even come close to doing, say alumni Kristen Krowley. I not only acquired skills in outdoor preparedness and leadership, but also discovered a stronger and more confident person inside myself one I had never before imagined. Interested students can pick up an application from their school counselor or can download a form at collierschools.com/students (click on the Outward Bound icon).

The outlook for people with type 1 diabetes continues to impr ove, s aid Catherine Cowie, Ph.D., of NIHs National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, the primary funder of the study. These results show that by tightly controlling their blood glucose, people with type 1 diabetes can live longer. Type 1 diabetes typically occurs in younger people and was formerly called juvenile-onset diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not make insulin, and people with type 1 need to take daily insulin to live. The findings are the latest results of the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial and its follow-up, the Epidemiology of Diabetes Control and Complications study. Results were published online Jan. 6 in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Beginning in 1983, the DCCT/EDIC study enrolled 1,441 people between ages 13 and 39 with recent-onset type 1 diabetes. In the DCCT, half were assigned at random to intensive blood glucose control designed to keep blood glucose as close to normal as safely possible, and half to the conventional treatment at the time. Both groups were similar in age. The DCCT ended in 1993 when the intensive control group was found to have substantially less eye, nerve and kidney disease. All participants were taught intensive blood glucose control and followed during the ongoing EDIC. Blood glucose control has been similar in both groups since DCCT ended. Researchers found 107 deaths among DCCT/EDIC participants, who were followed an average of 27 years from enrollment. There were 64 deaths in the group that had initially received standard treatment and 43 deaths in the intensive treatment group, a 33 percent reduction in deaths. The most common causes of death not all necessarily related to diabetes were cardiovascular diseases (22 percent), cancer (20 percent), acute diabetes complications where blood glucose became dangerously high or low (18 percent) and accidents/suicide (17 percent). More people in the conventional treatment group than the intervention group died from diabetic kidney disease (six vs.one). The study also found that higher average glucose levels and increased protein in the urine a marker of diabetic kidney disease were the major risk factors for death. These results build on earlier studies, which suggested that increased protein in the urine largely accounts for shorter lifespans for people with type 1 diabetes, said the studys lead author, Trevor Orchard, M.D., a professor at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. These results further emphasize the importance of good early glucose control, as this reduces the risk for increased protein in the urine in general, as well as diabetic kidney disease. Since the 1993 publication of the findings, the DCCT intensive treatment has become standard practice for type 1 diabetes. The new findings show that reductions in diabetes complications resulting from tight glucose control translate into longer lifespans. Thanks to the findings over the years from the landmark DCCT/EDIC study, millions of people with diabetes may prevent or delay debilitating and often fatal complications from the disease, said NIDDK director Griffin P. Rodgers, M.D. NIHs mission is to help improve lives through biomedical research. These kinds of results provide hard evidence that what we do helps people live longer, healthier lives. Diabetes affects more than 29 million Americans, most of whom have type 2 diabetes, often associated with being overweight or obese. Another NIH study found that in older adults with longstanding type 2 diabetes and high cardiovascular disease risk, very intensive glucose control to near normal levels actually increased mortality. In contrast, the DCCT/EDIC studied intensive glucose control in younger people with type 1 diabetes earlier in the course of their disease and found intensive control had a prolonged benefit in reducing mortality.

Going along on building inspection is an eye-openerYou might think after 15 years as an administrator at NCH, I would have visited every inch of our downtown campus. I thought the same thing until I recently walked through part of a three-day annual inspection of the building by the city of Naples Fire Department and saw areas in our building that I never knew existed. I learned our downtown hospital and Im sure the North Naples hospital as well is one of the most sophisticated and complicated buildings in Southwest Florida. I learned that in a fire or similar emergency, we defend in place, as we are a 100 percent sprinkled building. There are 45 fire compartments in our building, each separated by fire-rated doors that automatically close when the fire alarm is activated. If required to evacuate, we first would evacuate laterally, meaning patients, visitors and staff would move to another part of the same floor but in a different fire compartment, where they would remain safely while the fire was extinguished. If necessary, we could also evacuate vertically by moving folks down the fire-protected stairwells. We continually drill for this maneuver, but thankfully have never had to use it. I also learned that our computer room, phone system room, kitchen and heliport have special fire suppression systems based on a chemical called Halon, which will not damage equipment and is not harmful to humans. Thats not to say we wouldnt have water in a fire. We have a sprinkler system designed to literally flood a compartment. (Most likely we would have more water damage than fire damage.) Each fire compartment has a fire alarm pull station; fire extinguishers spaced at regular intervals, all inspected routinely with the date HEALTHY LIVING allenWEISSallen.email@example.com SEE WEISS, A29

Each stairwell also contains a larger set of pipes for fire fighters to hook into and a separate communication system that interacts with our own disaster center. We also have wireless radios, which the city of Naples and NCH share. Beyond all this, we have an auxiliary fire pump that can add pressure and volume to the sprinkler system or fire hoses connected to stairwell or compartment couplings. Electrical power for the auxiliary pump is backed up to our three generators, ensuring continuous electricity to the entire building even if power is cut off from the outside. Finally, our ER has a full set of backup equipment. Our NCH safety team members are all early responders, and each month a multispecialty team conducts an unannounced safety inspection and drill with a simulated fire on a unit chosen at random. Rodney Judd, our director of regulatory compliance, is justifiably proud of our preparedness in terms of fire safety regulations and the no deficiencies result from our last yearly fire inspection. I must say after my revealing fire safety tour, I feel a whole lot safer. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.WEISSFrom page 28

IS GOING MOBILE! IS GOING MOBILE! BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickAs part of our new years resolutions, many of us vow to do more to help others. For pet owners, that can include helping animals and their people. Volunteering at a shelter or fostering a homeless pet are common ways to contribute to animal welfare, but there are a number of other ways to help. Time, goods and money are all valuable contributions, whether its a little or a lot. If youve committed to help make the world a better place for pets this year, here are 11 ways to get started: 1. Donate pet food to your local Meals on Wheels program to help ensure that seniors pets eat well, too. 2. Keep a supply of gift cards to pet supply stores on hand to give to homeless people with pets. 3. Transport animals from shelters to rescue groups or foster homes. This can be especially helpful if you have a van. We once loaded up my van with six crates of dogs going to four different rescues, says Susan Fox of McKinleyville, Calif. For rural shelters like ours, someone who can move a bunch of dogs at once would be welcomed with open arms.4. Got a neighbor whos having difficulty getting around because of an illness or injury? Ask if you can help out by walking, playing with or grooming their dog. Elderly people may have a hard time lifting medium-size or large dogs, says Tiffany Gere of Butler, N.J. Offering to help with vet visits or being their driver in an emergency would go a long way toward giving them peace of mind. 5. Do your online shopping through AmazonSmile or AdoptAShelter.com. Register your local shelter or other petrelated organization, and a portion of your purchases will help to support them. 6. Your local shelter or rescue group just received an influx of animals and likely needs money fast! Help out by running a yard sale or an online fundraiser auction. Youll need to get individuals and businesses to donate items to sell, publicize the fundraiser and follow up to make sure all the payments come in, the items get sent out to the winning bidders, and the money gets to the rescue in a timely manner. (Get your animal-loving friends to help.) These types of events can also help to support a shelters emergency medical fund. Our shelter has a $250 limit imposed by the county on what can be spent on medical care for one dog or cat, Fox says. The fund covers the difference between that and what is needed. 7. Share your skills. Shelters and rescue groups need volunteers who can write grant proposals, design or manage websites, do accounting, photograph animals available for adoption, make home visits and more. 8. Hand out fliers for an adoption campaign or other event. I had posters donated for a white rabbit adoption program and someone distributed them to vet offices and groomers, says Mary Cvetan of Pittsburgh. It was a huge help. 9. Help newcomers to your town or new pet owners by making a list you can hand out that includes businesses and organizations such as local veterinarians, emergency veterinary clinics, pet sitters, pet supply stores and low-cost or free spay/neuter services. 10. Take blankets, towels, gently used (or new) dog toys and other supplies to shelters. 11. Got a big heart and a healthy wallet? Help with someones veterinary bills. Pam Becker, executive director of the Animal Health Foundation of California, recently received an email from a woman looking for information on low-cost spay/neuter services so she can help a homeless woman get her dog spayed. She sees the woman every day and wants to help her, Becker says.To find other volunteer opportunities, visit the website VolunteerMatch. org.

Trust me on this. Earlier this month, I braved the hazards and anxiety of air travel to make my way from sunny Southwest Florida to frigid Southwest Ohio to visit my son. I knew it was going to be chilly because for the few days before my flight, whenever I told anyone I was headed north, they basically looked horrified and warned me that I was going to freeze to death the moment I stepped outside the Dayton airport. I was warned to take every piece of clothing I owned. I was told not to drive while in Ohio because of the deadly icy roads, and one friend told me that the air will be painful to breathe. Let me be clear, though: None of my Florida native friends were full of dire Debbie Downer deterrents. Quite the opposite. My pals who grew up here were actually envious. You get to see snow! Do you have a great coat? Youre going to rock a great coat! Make a snow angel and Instagram it! My Florida friends were excited for me. Alas, it was my northern transplant friends who were wringing their hands and clutching their pearls over the thought of enduring temperature below 60 degrees. As the winter months hit their peak, Im beginning to think theres nothing worse than a northerner who has transplanted to the Sunshine State and has access to social media. It happens whenever theres a cold snap, a blizzard, or a Polar Vortex up north: The New Floridians, all whove lived here for about five years or less, cant help but post pictures of palm trees and screen shots of degrees and sunny forecasts on their Facebook pages with status updates such as Dont be jealous! and #sorrynotsorry and even bwahahaha! It took me going to Ohio in January and contending with minus 6 degrees to come to the conclusion that gloating about your pleasant weather is seriously bad form. Honestly, if you had a friend with the flu, would you empathize by saying, Dont be jealous! Im feeling healthy and great! Bwahahaha!? The smug weather bragging needs to end. Its true, a wind chill factor of minus 22 is no joke, and folks facing it are much stronger and have thicker skin than we who bundle up in scarves and boots when its 68 degrees outside have. As it turned out, I didnt freeze to death the instant I left the airport in Dayton. But it was 5:30 in the evening, already pitch black out, and I was slapped with a cruel, wet, cold that made my teeth chatter and my fingertips sting. The weather was no joke, but my boots were. Sissy Florida girl things with heels and no traction, they might work for strolling around an art festival on some warm February Florida asphalt, but attempting to make my way across ice and through snow in those stylish kicks would have landed this diva on her derriere. My solution looked silly, but survival was more important than sparkle. I ditched the boots and instead went with sturdy white sneakers coupled with thick pink socks pulled up over my yoga pants like legwarmers, ala Jennifer Beals in Flashdance (but not as cute). This looks ridiculous, doesnt it? I asked my son. Mom, he answered, its freezing cold. No one cares. And he was right. Whether youre sporting hat-hair and chapped lips or adding 10 pounds to your frame by layering, up north in the winter, no one cares. Theyre all just trying to make it to April without slipping on the ice, contracting pneumonia or getting in a car accident because of unsalted roads. Try and remember that when you consider posting a braggy weather update on Facebook. Because next summer, I doubt our northern friends will laugh at us when were just one Cone of Uncertainty away from a visit from Jim Cantore. Ship your chilly friends in the north a bag of fresh oranges today. And add a bottle of vodka. Now, thats good form. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B7-8 There are 12 types of bosses, each with a different management style, says Geoffrey James, author of Business Without the Bullsh*t: 49 Secrets and Shortcuts You Need to Know. And every employee needs a field guide to identify which type of boss they have and know how to get the most out of the experience, he adds. Here are the 12 types of bosses, according to Mr. James. 1. The Visionary Visionaries are more concerned with the future than with whats going on here and now. They manage by creating (or trying to create) a reality-distortion field that makes a team believe they can accomplish the impossible. While Visionaries can be fun to work for, they can also be intolerant and overly critical. Sometimes they throw tantrums when they dont get their way. If youre working for a Visionary, drink the Kool-Aid, work the long hours, and learn to repeat this mantra: This product will change the world. 2. The Climber Climbers are interested in you only insofar as you can help or hinder their ascent to the corner office. They spend most of their time and effort figuring out how to win status, claim credit and build alliances. Because theyre obsessed with their own career, they see you (and everyone else) only as either a help or a hindrance to achieving their personal goals. If youre working for a Climber, become the person who has his back when his fellow climbers try to stab it. 3. The Bureaucrat Bureaucrats want everything run by the book. They are resistant to change because they see their current situation as the best of all possible worlds. Bureaucrats thrive inside large enterprises but falter in smaller firms because the lack of a crowd makes it too obvious that they really arent doing all that much. If youre working for a Bureaucrat, document everything you do and limit your activities to whats been done in the past. Warning: Bureaucrats can grind your creativity into dust. 4. The Propellerhead When engineers get into the management chain, they bring a technology-oriented worldview with them. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean youll be judged almost entirely on your technical competence.BOSSESSEE BOSSES, B4 The 12 types and how to deal with themSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 Take a little time to handle a few matters that could generate big returnsSome of the most important things in investing are the least considered, the least planned and the least put into action. But a 10 percent time allocation in these matters can make a 90 percent improvement in your portfolios performance. Portfolio allocationOften unconsidered is your portfolios allocation, but its worthy of an annual conversation with your investment adviser. Most investors are allocated in a mix of equities and bonds. However, as you grow older, your money needs change and after a dramatic shift in either asset class, a rebalancing of a portfolio might be warranted. It might be that a portfolio review will not only have you shift assets between the two or it might have you decide to reduce bond and equity holdings in order to make an allocation to alternative investment assets i.e., those investment assets that are far more safe during times of equity or interest rate crisis. Yes, there are various investment assets that are nonfragile in that they are designed to handle financial market volatility. Such a portfolio is then truly diversified; it includes fragile assets of bonds and equities and non-fragile assets. Portfolio constructionSome investment advisers or money managers invested in other managers: submanagers to effect their portfolio allocations. It sounds like a good idea, except if the submanagers are more of the same or have you invested in 200 small positions. It would seem as if a portfolios best ideas are diluted if 200 positions are held and more so if you are invested in multiple submanagers. Five submanagers holding 200 stocks each results in a portfolio of 1,000 positions. You will never understand what you own if you hold 1,000 positions and chances are good that the portfolio overlaps.Portfolio managementMost individual investors are buyand-hold equity investors. When purchased, they are optimistic about the investment merits and have not articulated and put into effect any rules for portfolio management. For instance, it might be that there would be an automatic sale of an equity upon any 20 percent decline from the most recent peak price. It might be a 30 percent or 40 percent decline. It might be that the investor will need to establish exit strategies with his or her adviser and set the degree of decline to be weathered by the portfolio might be an overall 25 percent, at which point the adviser would lighten holdings or exit in full. As IRA and 401K plans are not taxable, such full-exit strategies do not trigger any taxation and. therefore, these accounts might have a tighter stop loss than the taxable portion of the portfolio.Time management It is worthwhile to spend time reading and studying as long as it is actionable information. It might be that you spend a lot of time researching and self-educating but then you never do anything with the information. It might be that the information is from a source that is interesting but not generating a degree of trust such that you will take investment actions. It might be that the information read is so diametrically opposite the prevailing investment winds that it is rejected. Self assess how you spend your investment time. The investment business provides interesting literature (that is profitable for the purveyor either as a sale or inducement to use their services) but, in reality, this research will never be used by the investor.Capital flows It really does you no good if you reach the right fundamental market conclusions but the markets continue in a wrong path. Markets either get it right before you catch up with a new reality or markets get it wrong, but they continue strongly in their wrong such that they outlast your ability to hold your rightly determined investments. Markets are not always rational, so application of facts and rational thinking might do you a disservice. What is more important than all the fundamental information rightly considered is where capital is stampeding into which asset class is capital entering or exiting. As the U.S. was once the primary investment arena and investors were the primary investors funneling capital into markets, we reasonably could be U.S.myopic. But not anymore. We must consider international capital flows. Rightly assess a managers performance. Do not compare performance in one asset class to another. Few asset classes have done as well as equities as of late but that does not mean that other assets get pitched. Be sure to compare performance to a reasonable and appropriate standard. Consult your adviser about the above. Visit with other advisers to gain a broader perspective. Retain investment professionals with expertise in specific investment asset classes. One-stop shopping applies to super stores, but not always to investment management. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

They consider all nontechnical types (like MBA holders) equally stupid and useless. If youre working for a Propellerhead, become fluent in nerdy pop culture references. If possible, illustrate business points by quoting lines from specific Star Trek episodes. 5. The Fogey Fogeys have been around since the days when secretaries (whoever they were) used typewriters (whatever they were). Theyre wise in the ways of the world but clueless about whats actually going on. Fogeys who are close to retirement are often quite jovial and easy-going; those who must continue to work because they cant afford to retire can be meaner than dyspeptic weasels. If youre working for a fogey, dont assume that every duffer is a doofus. Reassure your boss that hes still relevant and then recruit him as a mentor. 6. The Whippersnapper The flip side of the Fogey is the barely-out-ofcollege go-getter whos assigned to manage a group of seasoned employees. Whippersnappers are energetic and enthusiastic but secretly afraid that nobody is taking them seriously. If youre working for a Whippersnapper, respond enthusiastically to the energy he brings to his job and never, ever remind him of his relative inexperience. 7. The Social Director Social Directors consider the personal interactions that happen in the workplace as important as (and sometimes more important than) the work itself. Social Directors manage by consensus. They call a LOT of meetings and spend a LOT of time letting people air their opinions and ideas. If youre working for a Social Director, build alliances and garner supporters before trying to get any decision made. Also, be the one who brings the doughnuts to the meeting. 8. The Dictator While most people find the my way or the highway boss irritating, working for a Dictator has some advantages. They make decisions quickly, without over-analyzing. On the other hand, dictators are impervious to outside opinion and brittle when it comes to change. When they fail, its usually on an epic scale. If youre working for a Dictator, simply follow orders and hope for the best. But be ready to job hunt before the Dictator drives your organization over a cliff. 9. The Sales Star Selling is part of every job, and every boss should be able to sell his or her ideas. The problem with the Sales Star boss is that selling is the only thing he knows how to do. Sales Stars are usually created when top sales professionals are promoted into management which is stupid, because managing people requires a different skill set from selling to customers. If youre working for a Sales Star, encourage him to sell for you! Bring him into situations where a deal must be closed or terms negotiated. 10. The Hatchet Man Hatchet Men (or women) are brought into an organization to fire people as quickly as possible, usually to make the company more attractive to investors. There are only two roles available for people who work for a Hatchet Man: henchman or victim. Ultimately the favored role, that of henchman, is temporary: They often get canned, too. The best way to deal with a Hatchet Man is to be long gone by the time he or she arrives. 11. The Lost Lamb Sometimes people who have no management talent end up in a position of authority, usually because a manager left and the organization needs somebody to hold the fort. Lost Lambs continue whatever policies were previously in place and dread doing anything that will be held against them once theyre pushed back into the ranks. If youre working for a Lost Lamb, move your projects forward without forcing your manager to make any difficult decisions. 12. The Hero Heroes prefer to coach others than to do things themselves. They have a knack for figuring out exactly what their employees need in order to do a superlative job and then how to get that for them. Heroes always give their teams credit for the wins but take personal responsibility for the losses. They believe that the buck stops here not that crap rolls downhill. If youre working for a Hero, enjoy it while it lasts, because chances are the Hero will get promoted upward or be recruited to work elsewhere.About the authorGeoffrey James is a veteran business journalist who now writes a daily column for inc.com. His latest book, Business Without the Bullsh*t, won the following praise from Publishers Weekly: The authors pithy and frank style matches his title ... a quick, impactful primer for anyone wanting to be more effective on the job. BOSSESFrom page 1 JAMES Seven habits to break in 2015While the new year is still new, its an excellent time to expunge work habits that irritate coworkers and make you less effective. Achieving success requires more than just doing the right thing, according to author Geoffrey James. Success also means changing the behaviors that hold you back. Here, adapted from his latest book, Business Without the Bullsh*t, are seven workplace habits Mr. James suggests you can do without in 2015: 1. Doing the bare minimum If you accept a task, you owe it to yourself and to others to make your best effort. If you dont want to do something, have the courage to refuse the task. Doing a half-*ssed job is just being passive-aggressive. 2. Telling half-truths Honesty is the best policy. However, if youre afraid to speak the truth, its cowardice to tell a half-truth thats intended to mislead but leaves you plausible deniability. Either tell the whole truth or tell a real lie and accept the consequences if youre found out. 3. Finger-pointing Few human behaviors are more pointless than fixing blame. In business, its usually irrelevant whos at fault when something goes wrong. Whats important is how to avoid making the same mistakes again. 4. Bucking accountability Finger-pointing is common in business because some people arent willing to admit their mistakes. If youre going to take credit for your accomplishments, you must also take credit for your failures. The two go hand in hand. 5. Schadenfreude Taking a secret pleasure in the failures of others makes your own success less likely. You end up gloating over what other people did wrong, rather than doing whatever it takes to make yourself more successful. 6. Workplace gossip As Eleanor Roosevelt said, Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. When you spread gossip, youre identifying yourself as small-minded and also showing that you cannot be trusted to keep secrets. 7. Creating your own stress While work might be stressful, you make it worse when you fail to disconnect on a regular basis. Rather than answer yet another email, try taking a walk, reading a book or listening to some music. Turn off your phone when you go to bed; whatever it is, it can wait.

Mutual Funds Hidden CostsHeres something strange: Back in 1945, there was about $700 million invested in mutual funds, and the industry collected $4.7 million, or 0.8 percent of that, in fees. Recently, though, about $13 trillion sits in mutual funds, and investors are forking over twice as much in fees: 1.6 percent, or more than $200 billion. Whats going on? Well, fees and costs, some spelled out, some hidden, are adding up. One cost comes from too much trading. Many actively managed mutual funds have turnover ratios, representing how rapidly their managers buy and sell stocks, of 80 percent to 100 percent. That means close to the entire value of a fund (sometimes billions of dollars worth) is traded over the course of a year. This results in commission costs and more indirect costs from the frothy buying and selling of various stocks, which can move a stock price. The lesson: Favor lower turnover ratios, such as 30 percent or less. Another cost is taxes. If a fund is generating a lot of short-term gains, those typically face higher tax rates than longterm gains, which are taxed at 15 percent for most folks. Fund investors also foot the tax bill for bond interest payments and dividend income generated by fund holdings.The lesson: Check out the tax efficiency of any fund of interest, perhaps at Morningstar.com. Our own behavior can cost even more than the factors above, because many of us tend to buy high, when stocks or funds have been rising a while, and sell low, when theyve fallen. One study found that over 15 years ending in mid-2013, large-cap blended funds averaged annual returns of 4.5 percent, while investors in them during that period earned just 2.59 percent. The lesson: Be rational and disciplined. All together, these fees and costs can significantly hurt your investment performance. Learn more about mutual funds at fool.com/investing/index.aspx.

I was a customer and also an investor, as it soon became one of my core stock holdings. Back then I was using an expensive full-service brokerage, and when the Gulf War arrived, I was urged to sell all my stocks, as a stock market implosion was expected. I did, and nothing happened. I was livid, as it caused me to owe taxes on my gains and to lose money. I bought back my Home Depot stock and changed brokerages. The new one also encouraged me to sell some of it and to diversify more. I never did, and now Im a millionaire! R.P., ArizonaThe Fool Responds: Youre smart to trust yourself. The stock market will indeed crash now and then (though no one knows exactly when), but it has always recovered. Thus, its a good place for long-term money.Diversification is important, though. Its risky if any single holding makes up a big chunk of your portfolio. Home Depot has increased some 500-fold since the mid-1980s. Give Stock a WhirlThe name Whirlpool might suggest something headed down the drain, but the Whirlpool company is far from that. Whirlpool struggled for years following the Great Recession, with U.S. home sales down and Europe facing financial crises. The end result was fewer people buying big appliances for their homes. Fast-forward to today for a far different scenario. The U.S. housing market is in good (if not great) shape, and consumers face near-record-low lending rates to buy new appliances, including washers and dryers. In Europe, weve seen the housing market stabilize, which has reduced pressure on Whirlpools overseas results. Look ahead, and things really get exciting. A mixture of acquisitions acquisitions have been a core component of Whirlpools strategy and rebounding European and U.S. housing markets are expected to drive Whirlpools earnings significantly higher through 2018.Whirlpool is keeping its expenses under control, and it plans to continue to reward those who stick around for the long term. Since early 2011 it has increased its dividend payout three times, and it recently yielded 1.6 percent. Its forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is 11, well below its five-year average of 15. With brands that include Maytag, KitchenAid, Jenn-Air and Amana, Whirlpool is a household name, an appliance juggernaut, and an attractively priced growth stock to consider for your portfolio. I was incorporated in 1888 as the Pittsbur gh R eduction Company, and the next year I introduced a light, bright tea kettle that conducted heat well. I introduced aluminum foil in 1910. Today Im a leading global producer of primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum and alumina, engaged in mining, refining, smelting, fabricating and recycling. I enable smart buildings; highperformance defense vehicles across air, land and sea; more fuel-efficient vehicles; deeper oil and gas drilling; and more efficient power generation. I can turn a fourton truckload of dirt into a ton of aluminum enough to make more than 60,000 soda cans. Who am I? (Answer: Alcoa) Timing Social SecurityQIs it better to start receiving Social Security benefits early, on time or late? A.K., Butler, Pennsylv aniaAIt all depends on you and your circumstances. Collecting early means your monthly payments will be smaller, but youll receive payments for more months. (A payment beginning at age 62 instead of age 67, which is the full or normal retirement age for those born in 1960 or later, is much smaller, but youll get 60 extra payments.) If you have any reason to believe you wont live a long time, starting early can be best, but it can also make sense for other folks. After all, money you receive early can be invested, or can permit you to leave other investments in place longer. Also, some people have little choice; they simply need the income before retirement age. Theres a significant upside to delaying your benefit, though: For every year that you delay it up to age 70, the value of your payout rises about 8 percent. Thats not a small sum, and it can add up considerably over a few years. Given that many of us will live a very long time, waiting can be worth it. There are other considerations, too. If your income surpasses a threshold, part of your benefits will be taxed. If you plan to work a little before your retirement age, your benefits may be temporarily withheld. Consider the question from many angles, and perhaps consult a financial planner as well. ***QWhats a very basic introduction-to-investing book?

NABOR numbers indicate 2014 was a very good year for closed sales SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYOverall closed sales for homes in every price category above $300,000 saw double-digit increases in 2014. As a result, broker analysts contend that 2014 was one of the best years in Naples real estate history for closed sales. According to the Annual 2014 Market Report recently released by the Naples Area Board of Realtors, inventory increased 16 percent for homes in the $2 million and above category, from 394 in 2013 to 457 in 2014. The report also showed overall closed sales in this luxury market price category increased 33 percent, from 299 homes in 2013 to 399 homes in 2014. The overall median home price in this price category held steady year over year at $2,950,000. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Even though the report shows that the overall inventory decreased 6 percent in 2014, it increased in several price categories including the very high end, says Coco Waldenmeyer, managing broker at John R. Wood Properties. Interestingly, however, prices for luxury homes held steady. Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll Inc. says the market in general is trending toward a balance of supply and demand and value stabilization. Some market sectors may have reached their peak for this economic cycle in the fall of 2014, she says, while other House Hunting:220 North Lake Drive, Old NaplesThis Key West cottage-style home in Old Naples offers an incomparable combination of location, style and quality.

ALL ABOUT LOCATIONareas will demonstrate continued value growth in 2015.Buyers looking for single-family homes in 2015 will be pleased, as the report indicated a 3 percent increase in inventory of single family homes, from 2,260 in 2013 to 2,321 in 2014. Rick Fioretti, NABOR president elect and broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Realty, says this could be due to what the industry calls a sleeping inventory, or sellers who were unaware of the markets improvement and upon exploring their options decided to place their home on the market for sale. While closed sales stood firm at a 3 percent increase for condominiums in 2014, inventory in the condominium market did not fare as well as singlefamily home inventory in 2014. The report indicated a 14 percent decrease in condominium inventory, from 2,354 in 2013 to 2,030 in 2014. The only price category that experienced an increase in inventory was the $300,000 to $500,000 price category, which went from 408 condominiums in 2013 to 462 condominiums in 2014. Broker analysts indicate that this increase in inventory may be due, in part, to bracket creep, which is what happens when a homes value increases to a point that it surpasses its current categorys threshold and advances into the price category above it. The fact that inventory for condominiums in the $300,000 and below price category decreased 23 percent is further evidence of the bracket creep. The NABOR Annual 2014 Market Report provides comparisons of singlefamily home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the overall findings: Overall pending sales decreased 5 percent, from 11,065 in 2013 to 10,494 in 2014. Pending sales for single-family homes in the $2 million and above price category increased 28 percent, from 249 in 2013 to 319 in 2014. Pending sales for condominiums in the $1 million to $2 million category increased 11 percent, from 262 in 2013 to 292 in 2014. Overall closed sales increased 1 percent, from 9,723 in 2013 to 9,826 in 2014. Overall closed sales for homes in the $1 million to $2 million category increased 21 percent, from 516 in 2013 to 623 in 2014. Overall closed sales for homes in the $2 million and above category increased 33 percent, from 299 in 2013 to 399 in 2014. Overall median closed price increased 13 percent, from $240,000 in 2013 to $270,000 in 2014. Overall inventory decreased 6 percent, from 4,614 homes in 2013 to 4,351 homes in 2014. Average days on market for 2014 was at 82. The gain in momentum for the Naples housing market is evident when you compare quarterly sales activity for 2014. Bill Coffey, broker manager of Amerivest Realty Naples, points to the report that closed sales increased 5 percent in the first quarter, but then fell 4 and 11 percent respectively during the second and third quarters. But in the fourth quarter, sales jumped 9 percent. This increase is a welcome sign and indicates consumer confidence in the Naples area housing market, Mr. Coffey says. Industry predictions of a self-correcting housing market have come true. A return to a balanced housing market can be seen in the NABOR Annual 2014 Market Report because, even though sales increased by double digits for homes above $300,000, the median home price did not shift substantially.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 B31 Maria Wells, FloridaRealtors treasurer for 2014, installs the 2015 NABOR board of directors.Naples Area Board of Realtors holds 65th annual installation SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Naples Area Board of Realtors installed its 2015 board of directors and officers at NABORs 65th annual installation banquet in December at Quail West Country Club. Jo Carter, who served the organization as president in 2006, was the evenigns emcee. Maria Wells, 2014 FloridaRealtors treasurer, oversaw the installation of the following 2015 NABOR officers: Mike Hughes, president; Richard Fioretti, president-elect; Harley Conrad Jr., vice president/secretary; Jeffrey Jones, treasurer; and Richard Baranski, Robert Hewes, Eben Moran, Dominic Pallini, Carmen Isbely Vasquez, Corinne (Coco) Waldenmayer and Kim Ouellette, directors.Mr. Hughes thanked outgoing President Patricia Pitocchi for her service to and then reminisced about the day Ms. Carter came into his office and encouraged him to become involved with NABOR. Sometimes, fierce competitors can become the best of friends, he said about his friendship with Ms. Carter and other brokers in the area. The more I give to NABOR, the more I get back, he added. Past President Joe Ballerino originally coined that phrase, and I am living proof that the statement still rings true. The newly inducted president also announced five goals for his presidency: Redesign NABOR.com: This goal involves finishing the work necessary to modernize and launch the new member website by mid-year. Remain fiscally responsible: As a CPA, Mr. Hughes understands how to not only read a balance sheet, but also find areas that can be improved. In 2015, he will work closely with the Budget & Finance Committee to ensure NABORs long-term financial stability and to explore potential avenues of revenue. Expand District 5 relationships: Mr. Hughes believes an essential part of helping NABOR members stay abreast of industry opportunities is to encourage open dialog and create goodwill opportunities with other boards within the district. Solicit more broker involvement: While many of Naples broker leaders are involved in NABOR, Mr. Hughes intends to reach out to uninvolved brokers to solicit their participation. Stay involved with FloridaRealtors: In anticipation of renewed discussions and potential legislation affecting homebuyers, NABOR will maintain its involvement at the state trade level in an effort to represent the interests of members. NABORs 65th annual installation banquet was made possible by the following sponsors: the Naples Daily News, Downing Frye, Ross Title & Escrow and Summit Mortgage.

But I always seem to be getting myself in trouble. Last week, my friend Barb came to visit. She and her husband spend half their year up north and the other half down here. When shes in town, we like to get together to talk books and writing. We happened to be deep in one of those conversations, sitting in my new yard, when my neighbor pulled into his driveway. I gave him a shy little wave. He waved back, then came over to introduce himself. Im Dave, he said, shaking my hand. Im Artis. And this is my friend Barb. David shook Barbs hand. So, when did you guys move in? I laughed. No, its just me. Barb is only visiting. OK, he said. Then, I should take you over to meet the head of the homeowners association. I turned to Barb. Want to tag along? The three of us tromped across the street to an immaculate old home with the kind of landscaping youd kill for. A woman came to the door, nicely dressed, polite, firm. She and her husband, Dave said, were both attorneys. He introduced me and I introduced Barb and the head of the homeowners association asked, When did you two buy the place? I looked at Barb then back at the woman. Wait a minute. Did she think--? No, just me, I said. Barbs only a friend. The woman looked between us then nodded her head like, If you say so. Dave headed back to his house and I gave the woman my contact information for the neighborhood list. Barb and I said our goodbyes then set off down the street back to my house. In my driveway, we crossed paths with another neighbor, this time a young man. How you doing? he said, extending his hand to each of us. Nice to meet you, I said, shaking it. By now, I already knew what was coming. I knew I needed to introduce Barb. I knew what this new neighbor was going to say. This is my friend Barb, I said. He nodded. You two moving in? No, I said firmly. Just. Me. Sure, he said. He gave me a warm, genuine, your-personal-life-is-yourbusiness smile. See you guys around. Back in our original seats in my new front yard, I looked at Barb. Do you realize that all my neighbors think were together? She shrugged her shoulders. What can you do? But seriously, I said. I touched the hem of my sweatshirt and smoothed out my ponytail. What does this say about me? Barb just laughed. It was only later, after she left and I was alone in the house, straightening the kitchen before bed, that it occurred to me it doesnt matter what it says about me. It matters what it says about my neighbors. Each of them seemed welcoming and happy to have me in the neighborhood no matter what my personal circumstances might be. And that, I believe, is all thats truly important. Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried Widow published by Simon and Schuster. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 says, hes the only minority actor who shows up. Actors of color dont feel welcome and dont feel theyll be cast, so they often stay away. Thats why they leave the area and go to Tampa or Miami or elsewhere for work, he says. And in that way, Fort Myers and Lee County (and Southwest Florida) loses all of its talent. Bill Taylor, founding producing artistic director of Theatre Conspiracy, now in its 21st season, is painfully aware of the problem. Ive been doing this for a long time down here, he says. Ive been cognizant of the fact that minority artists arent getting their opportunity in the area. He grappled with the issue a few seasons ago when his company staged The Exonerated, which called for at least half the ensemble cast to be minority actors. We had difficulty finding the people to do it, he says. The thing is, we and other companies dont do work that is geared for minority artists, so minority artists are not seeking the opportunities from us. Its a Catch-22: Were not doing it, because theyre not there. Well, theyre not there, because were not doing it. Mr. Taylor decided to try to break the cycle with an initiative this season. The short-term goal is to begin producing shows geared toward minority artists in the area. Were going to do at least one production each season, he says. This year, its for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf. When it opened in 1977, the iconic play by Ntozake Shange was only the second time a play by an African-American woman had been produced on Broadway. (A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry was the first, in 1959.) for colored girls received the 1977 Obie Award for Distinguished Production. (Tyler Perry adapted and expanded it into a movie in 2010, but his version was panned as much as the original play was praised.) The show runs Jan. 29-Feb. 7 in the Black Box Theatre at Florida SouthWestern State College in Fort Myers. I have to strike now, when the irons hot, Mr. Taylor says. If I wait another year, maybe the interest will wane. I want to start the ball rolling, create the interest and hopefully see some progress. His ultimate goal, he says, is to create a company that would have its own space, very much like the Alliance for the Arts (where Theatre Conspiracy has its home), except it would be an alliance for the arts for minority artists. He envisions a theater troupe of color, a building with a stage, classrooms, an art gallery and maybe even an amphitheater. Were trying to break through, get people to understand this would be an amazing thing for Southwest Florida, for Fort Myers, he says.A pioneering playMr. Colon is stage-managing the production for Theatre Conspiracy. Patricia Idlette, a professional actor of stage, TV and movies, is directing. The amazing Patricia Idlette, Mr. Taylor says. She is awesome. I have nothing but respect for her She was the first person I reached out to when I decided I was going to do this. She has the credentials. He knew the local minority community would look up to her and respect her and want to become involved. Performing at the Stratford Shakespearean Festival in Stratford, Ontario, Ms. Idlette shared the stage with Maggie Smith, including speaking parts with her in Anthony and Cleopatra and As You Like It, for two seasons. She has had recurring roles in TV shows such as Dead Like Me, Psych and the updated Battlestar Galatica. She was in Scary Movie 3. When Mr. Taylor asked her if she would direct for colored girls, she recalls, I said, Get out of here! Id love to do colored girls. She had found the show breathtaking when she first saw it on Broadway in the 0s. She eventually acted in a local production of it in Vancouver. The play changed American black theater for women. It gave women a chance to step up and tell their stories freely and beautifully, she says. There had been plays before, Lorraine Hansberry and Alice Childress, but the male playwrights had always been more dominant. We had our poets, like Sonia Sanchez and Gwendolyn Brooks, but not a lot of plays hitting it big-time for women on Broadway. Ms. Ntozake, she says, turned it all upside down. The playwright uses seven women, each wearing a different color, to represent various aspects of the same woman. She calls her script a choreopoem, because its a series of poems that also involve movement, dance and music. Ms. Idlette says the poems represent Ms. Ntozakes journey toward being a woman in the world, being an artist, being free, being beautiful, being uninhibited and not taking on some of these stereotypes of black women being the mules of the world. These are all different aspects of the same woman and her journey to find self-love and creativity and to be able to express that. You know how hard that is, to be an artist. Youre not considered beautiful. All they want to see in TV or film is the mammy or the whore, that stereotype. She was a pioneer. And the sheer fact that its poetry makes it more devastatingly beautiful. The poems are very intimate, and each of her eight actresses has found them challenging, she says. And even though it seems to be in the vernacular, in Ebonics, it really isnt, once you look at the poems and see the cleverness. It took everyones breath away. The roles are performed by: Cantrella Canady, Paige Dawkins, Monica DeLattorre, Anna Delevoe, Carolyn Green, Sonya McCarter, Malissa Sanon and Chejia Onumbu. Ms. Dawkins and Ms. Onumbu are students at FSW. Ms. Delevoe and Ms. Sanon are students at Florida Gulf Coast University. (Ms. Canady and Ms. Green both happen to work at FGCU.) As far as she can see, Ms. Idlette says, Mr. Taylor has put his money where his mouth is, in hiring all types of people, all types of women.Coming back homeA Fort Myers native, Ms. Idlette worked for years in major cities in the U.S. and Canada. Returning home was a shock. I had no idea, even though I was born here, that it was and still is one of the most segregated areas in the country, she says. Unfortunately, for me, coming back home, I thought it would be a different kettle of fish. When I was living in larger cities, non-traditional casting was on everyones lips. That was all the rage in the 0s and s, and I assumed it would be like that when I came back. But almost all the roles shes played locally, except for the show Mr. Taylor cast her in, have specifically called for a black actor. Everyone doesnt have to be cute and have perfect teeth and be a size two, she says. Lets have all the colors of the rainbow. Because thats what you see when you walk down the streets. GIRLSFrom page 1Even people who had never attended a Broadway show were aware of Ntokake Shanges for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow if enuf when it opened in New York in the late 1970s. That was due, in large part, to the posters promoting the play. Plastered throughout the subway system, they showed a close-up of the citys playwright standing on a subway platform. She looks wistful, sad, introspective. Behind her, on the white tile wall, is written the name of her play in various colors, as if graffiti. And on the top right, in darker mosaic, is the name of the theater and its address. The poster was created by graphic designer/illustrator Paul Davis, whose distinctive art transformed the look of theater posters. (His name can be found in white on a white tile on the bottom right of the image.) As Mr. Davis told John Lahr in The New Yorker, before then, theater posters were just typography and credits designed by agents representing the artists and the lawyers. What Mr. Davis wanted to do with his posters, he said, was relay a sense of what the actors and the director were trying to do. His reading the script and talking with actors and directors about a show before designing a poster for it was considered revolutionary. It gave him insight into the themes and emotions of the play and it resulted in innovative, striking works that elevated theater posters to an art form. In 1976, four shows were using a Paul Davis poster: Streamers (with an image of a soldier falling through the sky), The Threepenny Opera (with a likeness of Raul Julia), Hamlet (with Sam Waterson) and for colored girls. His design for colored girls made people look twice, because it looked real; the woman in the poster could just as well have been standing beside them on the subway platform. The tile behind her was a continuation of the tile in the stations. Mr. Davis also created illustrations for magazines, album covers, book jackets and advertisements. His work is the poster collection of New Yorks Museum of Modern Art, and he is in the Hall of Fame of both the Society of Illustrators and the Art Directors Club. The Drama Desk created a special award to honor him for his posters for Joseph Papps Public Theater.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 Naples Finest French CuisinePrivate Parties & Catering Available upon Request ARTS COMMENTARYGod of Carnage makes for an excellent night at the SugdenNo matter how old we grow, were all still children at heart. We may not retain that childlike wonder and innocence we once had, but inside, we still wrestle with fears, insecurities, petty jealousies, flashes of anger. And thats evident in the two couples we meet in God of Carnage. Alan and Annette Raleigh meet with Veronica and Michael Novak because their 11-year-old sons have had an altercation on the playground. The Raleigh boy hit the Novak boy with a stick, knocking out two teeth. The parents meet to discuss the matter and work things out. But beneath their thin veneer of politeness and civility lie more primal feelings that bubble underneath, until, like a volcano, they finally erupt. And then we see the couples regress to childlike behavior, taunting each other, throwing temper tantrums, sulking and pouting. Our son is a savage, Alan declares relatively early in the play. As it turns out, we all are. This award-winning play (Tony Award for Best New Play, Olivier Award for Best New Comedy) by Yasmina Reza has made the rounds locally. It played at the Florida Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers in early 2012 and at the Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples (in repertory with Ms. Rezas Art) later that same year. I admit that I was a little leery of The Naples Players tackling this one. Its a dark comedy, with lots of shifts in emotion and tone. When performed correctly, it can make an audience laugh and at the same time feel appalled. But the Players have done an incredible job with God of Carnage, thanks to a skilled cast and Dallas Dunnagans perceptive direction. Paul Graffy plays Alan with the perfect combination of self-absorption and haughty disdain for anyone else. When we first meet him, hes impatient, fidgeting, and obviously doesnt want to be there. Almost surgically attached to his cell phone, hes oblivious to the others, repeatedly interrupting their conversation to take business calls. When one of the others comments on what hes said on the phone, he reacts with surprise and childish indignation: Youre not supposed to be listening to my conversations! This is part of the playwrights genius with this play: that she can comment on universal, timeless issues (grappling with raising children, caring for ones parents, power imbalances in marriage) while also commenting on specific issues (the ubiquity of cell phones and the selfishness of those who constantly talk on them with no regard for those around them, corporations putting profit over safety). Alans wife, played by Dede Brownlee, is a businesswoman whose polished exterior soon shatters. Ms. Brownlee plays Annette well, including a scene where she expresses a highly disturbing bout with nerves. Jessica Walck and Mike Santos are convincing as the middle-class Novaks. A self-made man, Michael is a Neanderthal in suit jacket and jeans. He puts his own feelings and comfort over his childrens and, we soon discover, is disdainful of his wife. Ms. Walcks Veronica gives the appearance of caring for others, but her selfishness is soon revealed. Part of the fun of watching God of Carnage is seeing how alliances and sympathies surprisingly shift, then shift again, during the 90-minute play. The couples are first united together, each against the other couple; soon, however, cracks and fissures begin to show, and wife turns against husband and vice versa. Before long, the characters sexism, racism and homophobia are on display. And Michael not only has disdain for his wife, but for his children. At one point, he declares, Children consume and fracture our lives. Children drag us toward disaster. Its unavoidable. When a friend is going to have a child, he says, he wants to warn him: You only have 10 or 12 years before you have cancer or a stroke, and youre going to screw it up with a brat? And the men both prove that while they may be men chronologically, they are still 12-year-old boys underneath it all. While this all might sound dismal, it isnt. The show contains many, many laughs. Costumer Ulla Doose has dressed these characters in outfits that reflect their professions and class status. And set designer Todd Potter has given the Novaks a living room that looks like a modern-day cavemans dwelling. The circular rug is also a nice touch its like a wrestling ring with two sets of opponents. God of Carnage is performed without intermission. This ensures that the emotions come to a full, rolling boil without interruption. The cast performs this play like a well-skilled string quartet, playing in unison, then in various combinations of duets and trios. Its challenging fare for a community theater, but The Naples Players prove they are up to the task. Surprisingly, the play was not well attended for a Friday night during the height of season. And thats a shame. Because this is an excellent production with actors at the top of their game, delivering a performance thats intense, gripping, hilarious and appalling, all at the same time. In other words, its an excellent night at the theater. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com God of Carnage>> When: Through Feb. 7 >> Where: The Sugden Community Theatre, Naples >> Cost: $35 >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org Veronica Novak and Annette Raleigh (played by Jessica Walck and Dede Brownlee) understand one another for now.

Declarer assumes an unfavorable lie of the cards and tries to deal with that possibility the best way he can. Here is a typical case. West leads a diamond against four spades. Declarer wins with the ace and notes that if the opposing cards are divided unfavorably, he could lose three heart tricks and one or two trump tricks. South can do very little about the trump situation if West has all four of them, so he begins by leading a low spade to the ace, on which West plays the three and East the eight. When declarer next returns a trump and East produces the ten, South must choose between playing the jack or the king. This is a very common problem, but, unfortunately, there is no invariable rule to rely on. More often than not, the king is the better play, but in a particular case the jack might be the right play. It certainly is in this deal, where playing the jack guarantees the contract, while playing the king jeopardizes it. Obviously, if the finesse wins, South has the contract firmly in tow. As a matter of fact, he is sure to make at least 11 tricks. And what if the jack should lose to the queen? In that case, declarer is still in good shape. Whatever West returns, South is sure of at least 10 tricks consisting of four spades, four clubs and two diamonds. But note what happens if declarer does not finesse the jack and plays the king instead. If he next concedes a trick to the queen, East will shift to a heart to sink the contract. And if instead South attempts to run his clubs right away in order to discard a heart, East ruffs the third club, and his heart return again puts the contract down one. Country Party. Rock Show.

Mr. Coopers performance is fine, but director Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino) never finds a natural flow to the story, so no tension builds and it feels episodic. Rated R.Inherent Vice 1/2(Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson) In 1970s L.A., a detective (Mr. Phoenix) investigates the disappearance of an ex-girlfriend whom he believes was in the middle of a nefarious extortion scheme. Tangents build on tangents, to the point that it moves in every direction but forward. Its neither funny nor dramatic, just a total misfire. Rated R.Selma (David Oyelowo, C armen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson) In 1965 Alabama, Dr. Martin Luther King (Mr. Oyelowo) f ights with local leaders, police, and President Lyndon Johnson (Mr. Wilkinson) to secure voting rights for minorities. The story is tedious at times, but Mr. Oyelowos performance is stellar. Rated PG-13.Unbroken (Jack OConnell, Domhnall Gleeson, Miyavi) After crashing in the Pacific during WWII, Louis Zamperini (Mr. OConnell) survives for 47 days on a lifeboat before being taken to a Japanese POW camp. Its an inspiring story about the power of sheer will and determination, flawlessly directed by Angelina Jolie. Rated PG-13.The Gambler (Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, John Goodman) A literature professor (Mr. Wahlberg) gets into serious gambling debt and doesnt seem to care if he can find a way out. Mr. Wahlberg gives an unexpectedly layered performance in this taut drama that has a few surprises up its sleeve. Rated R.The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage) With dragon Smaug (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) out of the way, Bilbo (Mr. Freeman), Thorin (Mr. Armitage) and the men of Lake Town protect the Lonely Mountain from Orcs and Goblins. The opening is an absolute thrill and theres enough spectacle throughout to keep it entertaining. Rated PG-13. Top Five 1/2(Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union) A comedian (Mr. Rock) spends time with a reporter (Ms. Dawson) to promote his latest film as his marriage to a reality TV star (Ms. Union) looms. The story lacks flow, even feeling like a stand-up comedy routine at times. But its also funny and has heart (literally Kevin Hart has a cameo). Rated R.

Bring Your Highest Expectations LATEST FILMSBlackhatIs it worth $10? NoWhat happened to Michael Mann? The director who gave us filet mignon with The Last of the Mohicans, Heat and The Insider is now serving spam with Blackhat, which on paper shouldve been good but in reality absolutely, positively isnt. Overwritten and underwhelming, Blackhat should have been a taut cyber thriller, a movie of espionage and intrigue thats very much a sign of our times. Instead its a cyber bore full of nonsense and the impossible, held together with a plot thats denser than it needs to be and talk of soy trading and code analysis. Its an action movie for the geeks in your I.T. department, not the public at large. After a cyber attack at a Chinese power plant which means someone hacked into the computer system and caused an explosion Captain Chen (Leehom Wang) from Chinese intelligence is sent to work with the FBI to find the attacker. With his network engineer sister Lien Chen (Wei Tang) in tow, they liaise with FBI Agent Carol Barrett (Viola Davis), whos untrusting and by the book. Together they do what any joint Chinese/U.S. government intelligence venture would do: They release a cyber criminal named Nick Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth) from federal prison because apparently hes the only person in the world who can read computer code. Were supposed to like him because he doesnt steal from people, only banks. If youre thinking, Wow, this plot sounds really far-fetched and stupid youre right. It is and not in a fun way. On the contrary, it has a distinct were-taking-ourselves-tooseriously vibe, which is consistent with Mr. Manns canon but doesnt work here. A bit more levity is sorely needed in the interest of audience engagement. Done differently and better, this would have been a fun thriller in which the audience enjoyed the ride of tracking down a new-age criminal. The script by Morgan Davis Foehl (this is his first credited script) should have slowly built in suspense as Nick, Lien Chen and company inch closer to the bad guys, but numerous odd detours along the way overload the narrative with minutiae. More focus and a quicker pace in the editing could have kept interest at a premium. Alas, not even the visual effects are interesting. The first time the camera swoops us inside a computer and into its hardware its a clever way to see the virus spread; by the fourth time, however, were over it and eager for something else. There are fight scenes, but they all feel forced never before has a computer geek been as buff and brutal as Mr. Hemsworth, nor are we likely to see one like him again and the shootouts lack the muster the director showed in Heat and other previous films. Worse, the visuals are inundated by muted colors, rendering exotic locales such as Hong Kong and Jakarta looking basically the same as Los Angeles. This is an apt metaphor for the movie as well: Everything seems to blend together into a blur, nothing registers with distinction, and were left with a slow-moving, 135-minute reason to nap. Without a compelling narrative and actors who look like they actually want to be there, Blackhat completely disappoints. Even the sex scene is lame. There are certainly good movies to be made that are set in the world of cybercrime, but this isnt one of them. >> The nickname blackhat for cybercriminals is taken from Westerns, in which villains often wore black hats.

Attendees will meet film executive K.C. Schulberg, a Naples resident who is the son of the 1958 movies producer and nephew of the writer. Mr. Schulberg, and participate in a Q&A session after the film. Set in the early 20th century, Wind Across The Everglades follows a game warden (Christopher Plummer) who arrives in Florida in the hopes of enforcing conservation laws. He soon finds himself pitted against Cottonmouth (Burt Ives), the leader of fierce group of bird poachers. The film was loosely based upon the life of Guy Bradley, an early game warden who in 1905 was shot and killed by plume hunters in the Everglades. The movie also features Peter Falk in his film debut, Gypsy Rose Lee and circus clown Emmett Kelly. What a rare opportunity to see this extraordinary film that was created right here in Naples more than 50 years ago and to hear directly from K.C. about what the experience was like, says Maggie McCarty, director of the Paradise Coast Film Commission. K.C. has a Hollywood legacy that very few can claim. K.C.s uncle, Budd Schulberg, wrote Wind Across the Everglades (and won an Oscar for On the Waterfont). K.C.s father, Stuart Schulberg, was the producer of Wind Across the Everglades and longtime executive producer of The Today Show. His grandfather, B.P. Schulberg, won the first Oscar for a film he produced in 1927, Wings, and ran Paramount through the 1930s. K.C. was born in France but at age 5 found himself in Southwest Florida with his father and his uncle on the set of Wind Across the Everglades. He says that experience was the genesis of a lifelong love affair with this area and the springboard for A Dream Last Night, the film he plans to produce in and around Naples this year. He currently divides his time between his homes in Naples and Nice, France. I was an impressionable young boy when my father and uncle made this colorful film noted for its Seminole lore, great Everglades locations and as Chris Plummers first non-Shakespearean role, the younger Mr. Schulberg says. It is my privilege to return to some of those same locations to shoot A Dream Last Night, he adds. Tickets to the screening at Silverspot are $16 ($13.25 for ages 55 and older) and are available at the box office and online at silverspot.net. RANDALL KENNETH JONES / COURTESY PHOTOK.C.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C21 FLORIDA WRITERSHey, thats no way to say goodbyeThe Big Finish by James W. Hall. Minotaur Books. 304 pages. Hardcover, $25.99. The cover flap announces that this book is the series finale, but I cant believe it. Its hard to say goodbye to an old friend. James W. Halls Thorn novels have long been such a central, exemplary and yet distinctive part of the Florida mystery tradition that many readers will be going through separation anxiety. Mr. Hall, please say it isnt so. The current of ecological concerns that has gained strength over the series reaches flood stage in The Big Finish, the title perhaps a spoof on expectations in life and art. Thorns son, Flynn Moss, whom he and the readers have only recently met, is in trouble. Flynn or someone has reached out to Thorn about criminal practices in the North Carolina pig farming industry. A member of the underground environmental activist organization known as ELF, Flynn has been working to expose and destroy a major player in this industry. At least four kinds of evil are running wild in the remote town of Pine Haven. One is the exploitation of workers through intimidation. Another is the cruelty to the piglets crowded together and plumped up for sale to slaughterhouses. Yet another is incredible pollution from mismanagement of the bovines toxic waste. Finally, there is the secretive nurturing of a plant with downward hanging trumpet-shaped blooms from which a dangerous drug is produced. Webb Dobbins owns a drug company that supports the hog farm, which is staggering under enormous debts. Some of his workers had tragically succumbed to an overdose of the trumpet flowers pollen. Losing a well-trained man was always a setback, but it was the unlucky cost of doing the kind of business he was engaged in. Such is the moral code of this particular drug business. Thorn sets out with a plan to partner with his old detective buddy Sugarman. From the beginning, however, the mission is compromised by a scheming, unstable former FBI agent, Madeline Cruz. This woman has her own plans and motives and is manipulating Thorn, understanding his need to rescue his son at all costs. She is suspicious of Sugarmans new girlfriend, Tina, who is along on the ride to North Carolina. Madeline suspects Tina of criminal activity. So, Thorns mission has grown far more complicated and desperate. He perceives the trouble signs, but feels he has to play this game out in order to find Flynn. Madeline admits (or perhaps lies once more) that the plan is to use Thorn as bait to draw out suspects in a big government operation. Other characters provide further complications. X-88 is a rock of a man who served at Raiford in the same cellblock with Manny Obrero, a drug dealer who had been Madelines husband. Manny has connected X-88 to Madeline, so X is now part of her enterprise and enjoying the company of her daughter, Pixie. Am I going too fast? Heres more: X-88 murders Sugarmans deceitful girlfriend Tina by forcing three hamburger patties down her throat to suffocate her. Murder by force-feeding. Something like how they fatten pigs. When the action moves to Pine Haven, the pace accelerates (its never slow) and the characters and actions become even more grotesque. Thorns mixture of loner and do-gooder, a man content to mind his own business and a man on a quest he cant quit, is on grand display as are his unexpected physical strength and fighting prowess. Thorns quick mind enables him to change the odds that are clearly stacked against him. After all, Mr. Dobbins runs what is essentially a company town and has the sheriff in his pocket. Hell do anything to salvage his collapsing business, which Flynn and his ELF-mates, and now Thorn, are bent on destroying. The whirlwind of showdown action in the later chapters is majestically handled, as are the effects of that nasty Webb Dobbinsbrewed drug on Thorns physical and mental state. Mr. Dobbins has found the right dose to keep people alive while rendering them docile, disoriented and controllable. Can Thorn fight through it? The Big Finale is another extraordinary performance by a contemporary master of suspense, characterization and setting. That it alerts us to abominations in our midst only attaches more value to this highly entertaining and tightly plotted romp. More Thorn, please. Hes our drug of choice.

While both types of decoys can be found at antiques auctions and shops, most are sold in auctions or shows that specialize in decoys, wood carvings and related pieces. The best of the 20thand 21st-century carvers are famous, and collectors can name the most talented. A stone carver named Charles H. Hart (1862-1960) hunted and made decoys for his brother and friends. At first Mr. Hart specialized in just a few species, including black ducks, Canada Geese, goldeneyes and mallards. About 1900, he started making a stickup black duck that had detached wings that flap and a head that could be turned. Hart was soon selling his birds to stores in Boston. In the 1930s, when the country was fascinated by the explorations in Antarctica, he began carving penguins. Most had applied flippers and color showing at the neck of the black and white birds. He made them in all sizes from about 6 inches to 4 feet high. Today, because of the movies Happy Feet and Madagascar featuring penguins, there is renewed interest in the penguins and the work by Charles Hart. The 8-inch-high birds have been auctioning for $400 to $750. Q: I bought a secondhand Ethan Allen drop-leaf side table back in 1967. Its still in very good condition. Its maple and in a typical Early American style. Its marked Ethan Allen and Baumritter. Why Baumritter? And what is the table worth? A: The furniture company we know as Ethan Allen was founded in 1932 as Baumritter Corp. The owners were Theodore Baumritter and his brotherin-law, Nathan S. Ancell. The company, based in New York City, made and sold housewares and decorative items the first few years. It didnt start manufacturing and selling furniture until 1939, three years after the partners bought a closed furniture factory in Beecher Falls, Vermont. The company named its Early American line of furniture Ethan Allen after the Revolutionary War hero from Vermont. The companys name was changed from Baumritter Corp. to Ethan Allen Industries in 1972. Your table is an early one if its marked Baumritter, but its not an antique. Still, the table is well-made and solid and could sell for $100 to $250. Q: I have a gasoline ration card from July 10, 1942, that belonged to my husbands grandmother.

Is this worth anything or just a piece of the past? A: During World War II, gasoline, tires, sugar, meat, shoes and other items were rationed. Gasoline rationing began in 1942 and lasted until World War II ended in August 1945. Gas rationing was meant to reduce driving so the supply of rubber and gas could be used for military needs. The car owner received a ration book with coupons that had to be redeemed when buying the gas. A sticker with the appropriate letter was displayed on the cars windshield. Most people were issued the A sticker and card, which allowed three or four gallons of gas a week. People working in the war effort who needed to drive to work were allowed up to eight gallons a week and had a B card. C was for doctors, nurses, ministers, mail delivery, farm workers, construction workers, and several other groups, E for emergency vehicles, R for nonhighway farm vehicles, T for truckers, and X for members of Congress and other special groups. Gasoline ration cards sell for $1 to $3. Q: I have a signed Phoebe Stabler brass Madonna and child statue that was my great-grandmothers. Is this of any value? A:Phoebe Stabler (187 9-1955) w as an English sculptor best known for her pottery figures. She also made figures in bronze and stone. Bronze figures made by Stabler have sold for over $1,000 at auction. A 13-inch bronze Madonna and child with John the Baptist, made by Stabler in 1907, sold for $3,686 in 2012.

Nassif, MD, FACS CELEBRITY EXTRASecrecy shrouds Jurassic World BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I know the project is all hushhush, but is there anything you can tell me about Jurassic World? George F., Montgomery, Ala.A: I spoke recently with James DuMont, who just finished another wonderfully disturbing season of American Horror Story, and who also plays a role in the sure-to-be summer blockbuster, which opens June 12. However, things are so hush-hush that he cant even tell me what role he plays. I cant tell you anything about story, plot, my character. Ive signed all these very heavy-duty nondisclosure agreements up and down the street, DuMont said. But the good news to tell you is that its amazing. The cast is amazing. There are so many cool things about this movie. They got it right. Steven Spielbergs on board. The director, Colin Trevorrow, is amazing. I think its going to be a really, really good movie. Im just excited to be a part of a big movie like this. Q: All last year I read rumors about a Wet Hot American Summer sequel, even on your Twitter feed, but Ive seen neither hide nor hair of it anywhere. Is this really going to happen? Megan M., via FacebookA: I have good news for you, and for lovers of this outrageous and brilliant comedy everywhere. There will indeed be a sequel, but not in feature-film form. Netflix, which is quickly becoming my favorite outlet for original programming, has picked it up for an eight-episode limited series. And pretty much all of the films original stars will return: Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Nina Hellman, Ken Marino, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce, Joe LoTruglio, Christopher Meloni, A.D. Miles, Marguerite Moreau, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon, Michael Showalter and Kevin Sussman. (Whew!) To say that I am excited about this doesnt nearly cover the emotions Im feeling about this series. Im thinking youre feeling the same way right about now. Q: I loved your interview with CCH Pounder about NCIS: New Orleans a few months back, and I love the show. Will it be back for another season? Janice T., via emailA: NCIS: New Orleans, which is the No. 1 new broadcast television series, has indeed received a second season pickup from CBS. Madam Secretary, which is the No. 2 most-watched new series, and Scorpion, which is No. 3, also have both received a second season. Readers: I wrote a few weeks back that Games of Thrones would be premiering its fifth season some time in April. Well, HBO has given us an exact date and time: April 12 at 9 p.m. It also revealed that Silicon Valley would begin its second season at 10 p.m., following the GoT premiere, and season four of Veep will follow that at 10:30 p.m. All three series will have 10-episode seasons.

CUISINE NEWSFrom simple to lavish, home cooks recipes record her journeyNew Florida resident Arlene Levin has created a cookbook that is chockfull of her awardwinning recipes. My Cooking Journey: Arlenes Simple to Lavish is a compilation of recipes Ms. Levin has collected over the years and used to trounce the competition in Chicago area cooking contests in the 1990s. When I got married, I did not know how to boil water, she says. But I always loved food. Upon returning from her honeymoon with husband Sandy in 1973, she did learn to boil water and embarked on a self-taught culinary program that resulted in hundreds of recipes that won her prizes from a variety of competitions that specialized in home cooking. Eventually, she realized she needed to compile her treasured instructions. My daughter asked if I had my recipes written somewhere and they were all over the house, she says. I felt I had to have them all in one place. Ms. Levins book is full of crowd pleasers for people who like to eat good food prepared by loving hands. Readers will find champion recipes for dishes such as lemon cake, banana cheesecake, chunky chicken and orzo soup, as well as a variety of Jewish dishes, Chinese dishes and Chicagoand Florida-inspired dishes. I wanted the Florida feel and the Chicago feel, she says. I really do have two lives. I love Naples and I love Highland Park. Ms. Levin is hosting a book signing and tasting with Hadassah and Beth Tikvah of Naples at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19, at Beth Tikvah, 1490 Pine Ridge Road. Reservations and book purchases can be made at arlenesimpletolavish.com or by emailing Arlene@simpletolavish.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 22-28, 2015 C37 239.434.6533/thirdstreetsouth.com Saturday The dish: Sauerkraut Soup The Place: Alpine Restaurant, 2355 Vanderbilt Beach Road The Price: $5.95 The Hours: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday The Full Menu: alpineofnaples.com The Details: After watching an episode of Bizarre Foods: Andrew Zimmern, where he samples a sweet and creamy incarnation of sauerkraut dressed as pie, Id been waiting for an opportunity to test the fermented treat in something that didnt feature two slices of bread. Predictably, Alpines soup heavily featured a variety of pork bits, mushroom and potatoes and was delightfully tangy and smoky. Ive attempted a version of this in my own kitchen and while I recognize myself as a reasonably accomplished home cook, mine definitely didnt have that Eastern European heartiness at which Alpine excels. Frankly, they are better at executing my sauerkraut dreams than I am, and Im glad of it. One More Thing: My companion and I went on to order a real lunch after I satisfied my curiosity about the soup. It was heaven. Very heavy, very filling heaven. I ordered the Czech specialty Knedlo-Vepro-Zelo, which features roast pork, huge fluffy dumplings and caramelized cabbage, and didnt feel the need to eat anymore than a light salad for dinner. Next time I might order a sandwich so I have room for the dessert crepes. Lindsey Nesmith email@example.com THE DISH SPEND VALENTINES DAY WITH US!

ENTIRE BILL VINOThe worlds wine auction capitalIn Florida, the winter season offers one charity event after another from November through April. All of them benefit a range of worthwhile causes, but in the past few years, our area, and South Florida in general, has become noted worldwide for one particular type of charity event the wine auction. The Naples Winter Wine Festival skyrocketed to prominence many years ago thanks to the astounding generosity of its attendees who bid not only on bottles of rare and precious wines, but also on experiences like a shot at a bit part on Desperate Housewives, or a trip into outer space on Virgin Galactic. This year, the event, held Jan. 23-25, is hosted by none other than worldreknowned wine critic Antonio Galloni, and offers a pre-event wine tasting at the Krug Champagne cellars in France. And, by the way, a $500 raffle ticket gives you the chance to win a Mercedes valued at more than $160,000. Thats why the NWWF has risen to be one of the top two or three charity wine events on the entire planet, and why theres a waiting list to get on the waiting list. For more information, visit napleswinefestival.com. Right up there as well is the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, scheduled for Feb. 2728 at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club. Founded by retired physician Steve Machiz, this event comes close to matching the Naples soiree in the amount of money it raises for the Childrens Hospital and other charities throughout the five-county area. Last year, it was ranked No. 4 in the nation, according to Wine Spectator magazine. Information is available at swflwinefest. org. And then theres the Palm Beach Wine Auction. Now in its eighth year, its held at the Mar-a-Lago Club and offers more than 40 lots of wines and spirits, plus over-the-top travel experiences. The title sponsor is Louis XIII, a cognac so expensive it should be served with eyedroppers. All three events have certain activities in common. First are the vintners dinners, held at private homes the evening before the auction. Event sponsors fly in celebrity chefs from all over the country to prepare elaborate dinners, along with invited vintners who provide wine pairings for course after course after course. Many dinner hosts have to remove most of the furniture from their homes to accommodate seating for all the guests. Plus, many of the events hold a preauction reception of some sort. In Naples, tents are set up on the Tiburon golf course with a wine bar and small bites from area chefs. The wine bar is important, because by the time the auction starts, attendees need to be in a happy, expansive and generous mood. The same is true for the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest. Prior to the auction, invited vintners, like Chris and Pauline Tilley of V Madrone Wines in St. Helena, pour their very best stuff, make new friends and contribute to the overall elevation of mood. In Palm Beach, the evening auction is preceded by a five-course dinner featuring sublime fare from a whos who of awardwinning chefs, including Philip Bollhoefer of the OMNI Asheville/Grove Park Inn and Joshua Hasho, from the OMNI Denver/ Interlocken Resort & Spa. According to event chair Ted Mandes, Were excited about the quality of the auction lots, and especially excited about the food and wine pairings. They should be excited about their auctioneer, too. Its Michael Troise, retired auction director for N.Y. Wines/Christies Fine and Rare Wine Department. He knows his stuff. For more information, visit palmbeachwineauction.org. All of the events include more than just the dinners and auctions. There are wine down events (a sort of after-auction after-party), brunch the next day, pre-event dinners (like the Palm Beach truffle dinner, held last December) the list goes on. So if youre ready to party with a purpose, and support education, childrens charities, at-risk youth, and other important causes, welcome to the winter season in South Florida. Questions? Comments?

CUISINEClassic pub vibe echoes through Lansdowne StreetEven if youve never visited its namesake thoroughfare in Boston, adjacent to Fenway Park and home to a high concentration of pubs and clubs, the inspiration for the Lansdowne Street bar and restaurant in Bonita Springs would hit you with the speed of a fastball as soon as you entered. The brick walls are plastered with posters, pennants and other Red Sox Nation memorabilia. The myriad sandwiches on the menu are named after other Boston streets and landmarks such as The (Green) Monsta. Its a tribute to a certain kind of Northeast tavern and an oasis of Beantown nostalgia plunked down in a strip center (the Bernwood Design Centre) amid the commercial urban sprawl of U.S. 41. That cognitive dissonance starts to fade as you settle into a polished wood booth and raise your first pint of craft beer, one of a couple dozen available on tap or in a bottle or can. Lansdowne conveys that kind of classic Cheers atmosphere that makes you feel welcome and relaxed after the days work is done. The menu has a rather workingclass practicality that matches the vibe. Hearty soups and a handful of salads complement the lengthy list of signature sandwiches and panini. New England regional cuisine is represented by Boston baked beans, which are offered as a side dish, and the lobster roll, which is available in miniature form as a starter for $12 and amped up as an entre for $24 (the fanciest item on the menu, the latter probably raises some eyebrows and some arguments about how it stacks up against revered Cape Cod or Maine versions). We started with a can of Up Top IPA from Sarasota ($4) and a pint of West Coast IPA ($6). There was some confusion about which beers on the chalkboard list are on tap, so be sure to ask your server when ordering. While sipping our brews, we decided on appetizers of smoked fish dip ($9) and stuffed cherry peppers ($7). A friend had recommended the fresh potato chips topped with smoked pork, bacon and cheddar, but it sounded too heavy to start a meal with. The dip came with toasted bread and crackers and little cups of diced red onion and chilies, a nice touch providing a little do-it-yourself garnish. The fish was a mix of mahi-mahi and wahoo, according to the menu, but it didnt have a very pronounced smoky flavor. It tasted fishy in the right way but was just a bit too timid. There was nothing bashful about the cherry peppers, which were pickled and tartly spicy and had ribbons of salty capicola and squares of provolone tucked within each half. Served on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce, the platter resembled something that a 1950s cocktail party hostess would pass around a bit of a throwback snack to have with a dry martini. When ordering the first course, I pointedly told the server wed like to start with appetizers clearly indicating that we would be ordering more food. Whether she didnt catch our drift or was having trouble keeping up with her tables, she didnt return to us for a long time, and then it was just to ask if we wanted another round of beers. Eventually, she came back to the table to make sure she had heard the order right (twice, actually). The restaurant was indeed busy, with a patio full of people enjoying live music and most tables indoors also occupied. The kitchen appears to be fairly small, too, which might help explain the delay in our main course delivery. But then again, how long does it take to construct a sandwich and toss some potato chips on the plate? The Boylston Street sandwich ($12) contained thinly sliced turkey breast, roasted red peppers and onions (raw, not caramelized as the menu indicated). A thin smear of goat cheese on the bread didnt have much impact on the flavor, but the meat and vegetables were well proportioned and the bread was nicely grilled. The baked beans on the side were mildly sweet and oniony. The server didnt bother to ask which side item I wanted with the aforementioned lobster roll; I was served a pile of potato chips but would have preferred cole slaw or potato salad. You can debate whether youd pay $24 for a lobster roll even in Maine, but there was a lot of succulent meat in this sandwich. Indeed, you can barely see the roll its spilling out of. I would have preferred a tad less mayonnaise with the lobster, but it had a lemony note that I quite liked and the salad wasnt filled out with other ingredients. Lansdownes is not going to replace my current favorite lobster roll ($11.95 at Dougs Seafood on Bonita Beach Road), but it has its merits. While we were speculating about the dessert options, our server asked if wed like a plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies (free). They hit just the right note of sweetness to end the meal; a dense wedge of cheesecake or some rich chocolate concoction probably would have put us over the edge of regret. Lansdowne Street has been around since 2007, but this was my first visit. It may not be a home run foodwise, but it is clearly a solid hit with sports fans who appreciate the pleasures of finer beers and simple food.

And its this intimacy that compels visitors to linger at a more lei surely pace. Bonus for a waterfront setting along Naples Bay and its history as the original Old Naples, home to the citys first boat landing and buildings that recall the citys past ties to fishing and fish processing. This little district, at 12th Avenue South and Eighth Street East, packs a lot into a few square blocks: casual and fine dining at locally owned restaurants, boutiques, art galleries and the citys main marina. Naples City Dock offers chartered fishing boats, anchorage for those arriving by water and sightsee ing water excursions themed to sunsets, nature and a glimpse at the backyards of some of Naples largest estates in Port Royal. On land, Crayton Cove features a handful of restau rants covering a range of dining options. Francophiles will enjoy authentic French cuisine at Bleu Provence, offering lunch and dinner, wine classes and private tast ings in its cellar and a cave stocked with small-produc tion and handcrafted boutique vintages. The Dock at Crayton Cove, an open-air waterfront fixture since 1976, earns rave reviews for its seafood, raw bar and tropical cocktails, plus Sunday brunchs buildyour-own Bloody Mary bar. Nearby Chez Boet offers a different spin on French, featuring homestyle cooking and a breezy terrace.

For years, he personally led biannual expeditions that sold out faster than a One Direction concert. Mr. Butchers Big Cypress Gallerys muck-abouts are so popular, 45and 90-minute guided swamp walks are now offered Satur days and Sundays from October to March, plunging participants into waistand chesthigh water inac cessible any other way. Talk about full immersion. The otherworldly mysteries of the swamp and its inhabit ants unfold right before your eyes: crystal-clear water, orchids, birds and the occasional gator within a cathedral of towering cypress punctuated with bromeliads and neon-green moss. Walks are $50 for adults and $35 for children younger than 16. Tours are limited to 10 participants, and reserva tions are suggested. Want more adventure? Spend the night where the wild things are. The gallery now rents Mr. Butchers home, a two-bedroom, second-story cottage some 700 feet into the woods; and a new one-bedroom bungalow. Both have full kitchens, screened-in porches and book quickly. A two-night stay ensures you have plenty of time to enjoy the swamp and nature, plus nearby Everglades City, offering fishing charters and airboat excursions.

Hundreds of fishers angle each day for a favorite spot on the span, which has attracted anglers since the original wooden drawbridge linking Pine Island and Matlacha to the mainland opened in 1927. Subsequent bridges have only heightened its appeal as a personal fishing pier; the 2012 replacement provides added protection with a concrete barricade between sidewalk and traffic. Serious fishermen, including the Snook Cowboy aka the husband of Greater Pine Island Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jennifer Jennings monitor moon phase, tides, sun and weather to gauge the best fishing days. Insider tip: Fish feed more often at sunrise and sunset and during higher-than-average tides during full moons. Common fish caught from the bridge include snook, tarpon, redfish, crevalle jack, cobia, Spanish mackerel, snapper, sheepshead, ladyfish, flounder and catfish. A Florida fishing license is required.Matlacha Bridge Pine Island Road/CR 78 between Cape Coral and Pine Island.

DSC26 DSC27 here was a time when the term farm-to-table didnt exist because it wasnt needed: There wasnt any other way food moved from the producer to the consumer. With the advent of large commercial farms and third-party dis tributors shipping food from distant portions of the globe, however, that all changed. But in what surely is a healthy and tasteful improvement, more locally grown produce and meats as well as seafood harvested from nearby waters are showing up at mealtime. Chefs who understand that local products taste better and benefit both the environment and economy are purchasing fruits and vegetables, meats and fish from area farmers and fishermen. In some cases, chefs are even growing some of their own. Here are a few spots where you can savor the flavor of Southwest Florida:From the mouths of babesIt may not be possible to taste fresher produce than that emerging from Executive Chef Bryan Suttons kitchen at Veranda E at The Escalante in Naples. Thats because the restaurant has its own 3,000-square-foot garden in which thrive lettuces, eggplants, peppers, toma toes, herbs, beets and radishes. The produce is grown organically, using natural sub stances such as peppermint oil, marigolds, coffee grinds and eggshells (Slugs dont like eggs, Mr. Sutton says) to control pests. The idea for the garden grew from a question the chef asked his children: Where does corn come from? It comes from Publix, they said. I knew we had a lot of work to do, he says.

Its easy to get to and easy to leave and reach the nearby highway, which leads to far away places north and south. Six Bends, though, is more than a motorcycle deal ership or a place where bikers can shop for HarleyDavidson-branded items. Comparing this place to a typical bike shop is like comparing a Harley to a tricycle grandma rides through the mobile home park.

The thousands of motorists zipping north and south on the two 41s every day may not know about the courses existence, but local disc golfers sure know about this recreational gem. Unlike golf played with clubs and little white balls, this sport requires no greens fees or cart; just a bag of discs that many of us have grown up referring to generi cally as Frisbees. Anybody is welcome to walk in and play. The rec center even sports a disc-golf pro shop. The Bonita tract is one of several layouts in the area used by the Southwest Florida Disc Golf Association. Its a great course to learn on, said Dan Burroughs, a Bonita Springs resident and avid player. The sport also is played throughout the region at similar courses in North Fort Myers, Naples, Estero, Fort Myers Beach and North Charlotte Regional Park. All levels are welcome at the Bonita Springs course, from novices to seasoned players such as Mr. Burroughs. Rookies might have a tough time hanging with play ers such as Mr. Burroughs, who routinely can fling a disc 300 feet. The longest of the all-par-3, 18 holes on the Bonita Springs course is 430 feet. All you have to do is find the course thats nestled in the woods.Bonita Springs Disc Golf Course Bonita Springs Recreation Center 26740 Pine Ave. Bonita Springs (239) 992-2556 bonitaspringsrecreation.org VANDY MAJOR PHOTOGRAPHY VANDY MAJOR PHOTOGRAPHY Get your disc on at the Bonita Springs Disc Golf Course
DSC40 DSC41 DSC42 2015 DESTINATION SWFL 41FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com Ride with the ultimate chain gangThey gather at different places on different days, but always with the same goal to cycle through the neighborhoods of Naples and nearby communities. The bicycling club is called Naples Velo, but its community rides are open to anybody with a bicycle and a helmet. Theres plenty of scenery on the routes club members ride near beaches, along palm-fringed streets and past huge mansions. But one thing is more important than everything else. Be careful, said Erik Kellar, a club member. The clubs website, naplesvelo.ning.com, lists eight organized rides with different paces, distances and sightseeing opportunities. At 6:30 a.m. Tuesdays, the group gathers at Cambier Park on Eighth Street South and proceeds at a relatively leisurely 14to 16-mph pace. This ride is designed for entry-level riders. Beginners might have a far tougher time staying with the group if they join a ride that starts at the Market Place at Pelican Bay at 7 a.m. Thursdays and goes north into Lee County, to either Corkscrew Road or Florida Gulf Coast Univer sity. This is a 47-mile ride with speeds sustained between 25 and 29 mph, which is really moving. But Mr. Kellar pointed out something about riding in groups. Its funny when people say that they cant do something, Mr. Kellar said. The camaraderie of cycling groups can pull slower riders along at faster paces than they might not have thought possible. And that might bring them back to ride another day. Before you know it, its an addiction, Mr. Kellar said. A good addiction.Naples Velo cycling club naplesvelo.ning.com VANDY MAJOR PHOTOGRAPHY Visit us at our New Model: 2327 Deborah Dr., Punta Gorda FL 33950 Cyclists of all levels ride with Naples Velo.

Hernias can be simple or complex.There are many different types of hernias including femoral and umbili-cal hernias but by far the most common type is the inguinal, or groin, hernia.A hernia is essentially a rup-ture or tear. Hernias typically occur in the abdominal wall cav-ity, but the areas near the natural openings in the groin (inguinal), below the groin (femoral) or through the navel (umbilical) are among the most common.Another common type of hernia is incisional, which is to say the hernia is in an area where there has previously been a surgical incision. ese types of hernias are fairly common among patients who have had a bowel resection or open gall bladder surgery, and women who have undergone total abdominal hysterectomy.One thing is certain about hernias: they do not always resolve, even after a surgical procedure. Unfortunately, there are many hernia suerers who have had surgery three or four HERNIA HELPLose the girdle! Even complex hernias can be eliminated with this leading-edge procedure.times and are still not better. ese people have recurrent her-nias, since they occur over and over again.Not surprisingly, incisional hernias often become recurrent. Whereas incisional hernias can occur in areas where the abdomi-nal wall has been weakened by a previous surgery, recurrent incisional hernias are those that return even after having been repaired.Patients in this group are truly facing a dilemma: each time they have their hernia repaired, it seems to heal. en, within a period of months or even years, the hernia returns, usually worse than ever. Many of these patients go from doctor to doctor, sometimes being told to lose a hundred pounds or more before additional surgery can be attempted.As few general surgeons want to take on these challeng-ing cases, the patients often end up going through life wearing an abdominal binder under their clothes the same type of binder used to keep a surgical site stable after abdominal surgery.Like a girdle, the abdominal binder is a way to hold everything in place, but it is hardly a long-term solution: beneath it, the patient still has a large abdominal bulge, and underneath that their external and internal oblique muscles, and rectus abdominus muscle all the muscles that hold in the intestines and bowel have lost their shape.Fortunately, there is now a solution for these complex hernia cases.Domingo E. Galliano, Jr., MD, FACS, FASCRS, has received advanced training in Cleveland, OH for a minimally invasive procedure known as reconstruction of the abdominal wall, or complex abdominal wall reconstruction. Dr. Galliano is a surgeon in the Charlotte County area who is currently performing this leading-edge surgery.During the procedure, the surgeon actually performs a closure of the complex abdominal wall defect. Even in situations where all of the abdominal muscles have separated, and the patients internal organs are not COLON AND RECTAL SURGERYbeing held back by the muscles anymore, Dr. Galliano can use the advanced surgical technique to provide a solution. Recently, he held a screening session for hernias where half a dozen patients who attended were suering with these specific types of hernias. Some were candidates for complex abdominal wall reconstruction.If you are suffering from recurrent hernias and are unsure where to go; if you have been turned away by hospitals and surgeons; if no one else has been able to help you, then you may be a candidate for complex abdominal wall reconstruction. For an evaluation, call () -. FHCN Quite a number of conditions can affect the colorectal area, notes Dr. Galliano. One of the most dis -tressing and taboo is that of fecal incontinence/constipation.Perhaps even more isolating than the more well-known con -dition of urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and constipa-tion can be caused by a variety of factors, explains Dr. Galliano.The bowel function is controlled by three things: the sphincter, a muscle which keeps stool from leaking; the rectums storage capacity, or how much the rectum can stretch and hold stool before it must be released; and rectal sensation, the feel-ing that one must void a bowel movement. If anything interferes with these three factors, then fecal incontinence or constipa-tion, or both, can occur.e problem is more com-mon than one might think. It aects as many as ve and a half million Americans. Damage to the nerves in the area, weak or Fecal Incontinence and Constipation:damaged muscles such as from dicult childbirth or episiotomy and inammatory bowel dis -ease are all examples of possible causes of fecal incontinence.Fortunately, continues Dr. Galliano, there are now new techniques for dealing with these problems.If dietary changes, medical management, or bowel retraining programs do not eradicate the problem, fecal incontinence and constipation may be addressed through surgical procedures to correct the underlying physical problem. In the event that sphincter dam age was caused by childbirth or rectal prolapse, surgery may prove to be an eective method of correction.Anal-rectal physiology testing stud-ies the function of the anus and rectum. Physicians order analrectal physiology evaluations, which combine several diagnos-tic tests, to help pinpoint the exact bowel problem a patient is experiencing. Test results determine the proper treatment to help correct or eliminate problems such as constipation, rectal pain, a bulging rectum, or fecal incontinence.Fecal incontinence and con-stipation typically respond well to professional treatment, assures tests and treatmentsDr. Galliano. e key is nding a specialist who is board certied in colon and rectal surgery able to diagnose the problem and nd a treatment that will restore bowel control or, at the very least, substantially reduce the severity of symptoms.The best approach is to develop an individualized treat-ment plan, which is the basis of our practice.
