No matter what comedian/actor/writer John Cleese accomplishes in life, hell be forever associated with a dead Norwegian blue parrot. Its the most famous sketch he and Graham Chapman wrote for Monty Pythons Flying Circus, the 1970s BBC comedy show that blended surrealism with silliness and dry British humor. The show, which included fellow Python Terry Gilliams animation, was unlike anything ever seen before: a half-hour of inspired lunacy, in which anything could happen and often did. and now forsomething Things you might not know about Monty Python and more useless trivia.inside: A9 BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.com www.FloridaWeekly.com PRSRT STD U.S. POSTAGE PAID FORT MYERS, FL PERMIT NO. 715 Vol. VII, No. 49 FREEWEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 Download our FREE App todayAvailable on the iTunes and Android App Store.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARYThe campus gun-upLet me pick a point central to the upbringing and early gun educations of many of todays decision makers say 1960, when American cinema frequently harkened back to the 1870s or s in the western United States. With a combat veteran as president (John F. Kennedy), the country and the planet had escaped World War II only 15 years earlier. Nobody had ever heard of Vietnam except a few American military advisors and the unfortunate citizens of the French Republic. The National Rifle Association, these days ranked as one of the three most powerful lobbying groups in the nation and currently pushing to let anybody with gun permits carry them on college campuses, would not even begin its aggressive political lobbying on behalf of arms manufacturers for another 15 years. Americans were more deeply and less skeptically steeped in the culture of guns than we are now, a point demonstrated by a look at the movies. In the course of that single 12-month period 55 years ago, American moviemakers turned out the following Westerns for the silver screen: The Alamo, Cimarron, Comanche Station, Flaming Star, Guns of the Timberland, Hell Bent for Leather, Hellor in Pink Tights, The Magnificent Seven, North To Alaska, One Foot in Hell, Sergeant Rutledge, Seven Ways from Sundown and The Unforgiven. No sooner had 1961 ridden into town than Hollywood put out many more of the same, with titles such as, The Comancheros, The Deadly Companions, The Misfits, Posse from Hell, The Savage Guns and Two Rode Together. Those were followed in the coming years with scores more, including such less-than-famous titles as Guns To Apache Pass, Day of the Evil Gun, Guns for San Sebastian, The Shakiest Gun in the West, Guns of the Magnificent Seven and Heaven with a Gun. By the time the decade ended, we were mired in Southeast Asia as deeply as the French had been in the 1950s. Baby boomers who were trying to live up to their fathers by wandering around rice paddies with M-14s and M-16s, or who tried to live down their fathers by protesting the shoot-first-ask-questions-later gun temperament spawned especially in the West, were having to rethink their views of themselves and the world. And while they were doing it, the westerns offered a couple of standard themes to any young person or adult who watched: One, good guys wore white hats. And two, when the good guys rode into town, sometimes they had to check their guns at the livery stable or the sheriffs office or the door of the saloon. But eventually theyd have to recover them and open fire, blazing their ways to justice and the American dream. As one who grew up in the West, and whose family included both real cowboys and war heroes for whom guns were tools as common and present as boots or gloves or barbed wire and fence posts, although less frequently used I now have to wonder what my people would have thought about carrying semi-automatic handguns that can spit out 15 rounds in a few seconds into college dormitories or classrooms, as a matter of routine. Although its too late for me to ask now, Im pretty sure they would have considered it crass and ill-mannered, as well as completely unnecessary. Eight states now have laws that allow gun-toting on campus to one extent or another, and two Republican legislators in Florida have once again proposed legislation that could put Sunshine State colleges and universities in that camp, as well. Last week, those bills (House Bill 4001 and Senate Bill 68) were first heard in committee. Theres a lot of talk in Florida about Second Amendment rights in the country rights which have never been threatened by the government no matter what the NRA claims. Nobody is coming to take away our guns, in other words. But there is little hearkening back to the real history of the gun-toting culture, the 19th-century cowboy west that spawned all those fanciful flicks, and perhaps some of our attitudes today. Heres how those Americans reasoned, and how they dealt with guns and shootings from Texas to Montana in the decades following the Civil War, according to historian David T. Courtwright, writing in Robert Muths collection, Guns in America: A Reader. The gun laws (put aside weapons in towns) were a good idea but poorly enforced, especially during the 1870s, the worst decade for killing on the cattle frontier, writes Mr. Courtwright. Cowboys persisted in wearing their pistols or took to concealing them, which was even more dangerous. Their defiance of the law was both a cause and effect of the prevailing violence (but) the situation changed in the 1880s and 1890s. As the threat of Indians and outlaws receded and the regular police system gradually became more professional and efficient, it was hard to justify carrying personal weapons for self-defense. Responsible cattlemen like Col. R.G. Reid, superintendent of the Prairie Land and Cattle Co. (a Texas outfit), began urging their hands to forgo gun toting, which he denounced as a pernicious and useless habit, both illegal and foolish. Gun control, enforced by determined employers, was probably the single most potent check on homicidal violence among cowboys Cattlemen who insisted that cowboys lay aside their pistols understood that their men were not usually thinking straight when they pulled the trigger, and that most shootings were either accidental or due to drunkenness, gambling or hot-headed impulse. It worked, in the most gun-toting civilian culture the United States has ever seen. By 1900, Mr. Courtwright notes, most cowboys had never seen a killing, much less participated in one. In some ways, a college campus can be pretty similar to the cowboy West it can be wild. So why not take a page from history, and practice the wisdom of our elders in Florida today?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 Biden being BidenWhile Hillary Clintons team of consultants is locked in a room somewhere trying to figure out how she can project authenticity, Joe Biden is out doing it. The vice presidents recent interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert was compellingly human, as Mr. Biden talked of the tragic loss of his son Beau and his decision whether or not to make a late entry into the Democratic presidential race. Its rare for someone who has been at the pinnacle of our politics for decades to get a second look. But Mr. Bidens latest family tragedy (he lost his first wife and a daughter to a car accident in the 1970s) means that the vice president is viewed through a prism of sympathy, as a grieving father rather than just another politician. And Hillarys struggles, especially her woodenness, put an accent on Mr. Bidens let-it-allhang-out, true-to-his-self personality. You can disagree with Mr. Biden, you can mock him, you can cringe at his miscues but it is impossible not to like him. Hillarys team can come up with the best, most elaborate plan for her latest makeover (it will emphasize spontaneity, The New York Times reports) and still not come close to matching the bizarre charm of Mr. Biden being Mr. Biden. We are constantly assured by people around her that Hillary Clinton is warm in private. Mr. Biden is warm in public. His performance swearing in new senators earlier this year was a nonstop Bidenesque spectacle of selfies, folksy comments and general crazy-uncle antics, some of dubious appropriateness. Their public personas are captured in the story of two parades. One of the enduring moments of the Hillary campaign so far is of reporters being corralled in a roped-off pen to keep them away from the candidate during a small July Fourth parade in New Hampshire creating an instant metaphor of arrogance and control. When Joe Biden showed up at a Pittsburgh Labor Day parade, he broke into a trot, eagerly bouncing from one side of the route to another, shaking hands, dispensing hugs and kissing babies. Low energy, in Donald Trumps signature phrase, this was not. Mr. Biden was a joyous retail campaigner in his element. On paper, Mr. Biden is hardly a natural match for the populist, antiestablishment mood. He first got elected to the Senate in 1972, a year after Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was born. His resume includes 17 years as chairman or ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and 12 as chairman or ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. This is a resume for a gold watch, not for a late-developing insurgent president campaign. Yet Mr. Biden is a practiced and, unfortunately, fairly effective demagogue. He can denounce the rich with the best of them. If he gets in, he will immediately be evaluated by a different standard. Hell be an actual candidate rather than the intriguing potential new entry. Hell be the old white guy trying to stop history. But hell also be a breath of fresh air in a Democratic race that was supposed to be the stultifying march to the nomination by one of the dullest politicians of our time. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION h t u f s r m rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Dont just fire Officer James Frascatore; arrest him BY AMY GOODMAN AND DENIS MOYNIHANNew York City Police Officer James Frascatore has given new meaning to the Grand Slam of tennis. Last week, he violently assaulted retired tennis champion James Blake in front of the Grand Hyatt Hotel, tackling Blake as he was waiting for a ride to watch the U.S. Open. Blake, a 35-year-old AfricanAmerican, was formerly the top mens tennis player in the United States, was fourth in the world and has scores of trophies from around the globe. Blake didnt know what hit him. If the New York Police Department had taken previous charges against Frascatore seriously, Blake would have never been attacked. Frascatore is white and has been with the NYPD for four years, and in that short time has provoked multiple lawsuits alleging police brutality and excessive force, as well as numerous complaints to the police oversight Civilian Complaint Review Board. So, while James Blake has long excelled on the court, James Frascatore excels at being sued in court. Frascatore has a clear pattern of racist violence against innocent citizens. It is only because he assaulted a man of means, a celebrity, captured on video, that his conduct is under scrutiny. Both Police Commissioner William Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio have called Blake and apologized. Warren Diggs is still waiting for his calls of apology from the two men. On Jan. 13, 2013, he was riding his bicycle home in the neighborhood of Jamaica, Queens. As he reached his driveway, he told us, speaking on the Democracy Now! news hour: I go down the driveway, and on the way down, I hear somebody yell to me, Stop! Where are you going? Where are you going? So, Im not sure if its for me, because, you know, theres no reason for it, but theres nobody else outside at this time. He went on: Officer Frascatore, two other officers come running down the driveway. Where you going? Where you going? I said, Im going home. Whats the problem? They said, Whats your name? Do you have any ID? I said, My name is Warren. Yes, I have ID, but I dont have it on me. Its inside. Diggs slowly pulled the keys from his pocket and unlocked the two doors to his home. As soon as my second foot reaches the landing, Frascatore grabs me, tries to pull me out and just spins me around, he continued. I asked him, like, Whats the problem? The other officer grabs my other arm, and they both yank me out into the driveway. So Im saying, What is the problem? What is this about? Frascatore punches me in the side of the head. The officer that was behind me, he grabs me around my waist, picks me up, he slams me on the ground. It was dark, and no one was around to witness the beating. Warren Diggs choked up with emotion as he continued to recount his ordeal: Frascatore drops down on me. The guy behind me hits me in my back. Im getting hit all in my side. I see two other cops come down the ramp. And Im getting hit, Im getting hit. Im asking, what are they doing, what are they doing? Nobodys saying anything to me, so I start screaming for my girlfriend to come outside. Im calling her, calling her, calling her, and she doesnt respond. So I just start screaming, Help! Help! Help! Help! over and over again, louder and louder, as loud as I could. A hand appears in front of me, he went on. I get maced in my forehead. I close my eyes, and Im getting hit and getting hit. I hear again, Mace him again. Mace him again. I get maced a second time. Im still getting hit. Nafeesah Hines, Diggs girlfriend, came outside, at which time Diggs said the beating stopped. She took his bicycle inside as the police led Diggs to the squad car. Hines made an audio recording of what followed, capturing a chilling exchange as police forced their way into her house and arrested her, as well, for tampering with evidence. Thats right: since the police accused Diggs of riding on the sidewalk, the bike was evidence. Diggs didnt know that his girlfriend had been arrested until he saw her later, at the station, handcuffed to a bench in her nightgown. In the station, Diggs was subjected to racial slurs. They said he looked like an animal, and lived in the jungle. Diggs had been so badly beaten and maced, a medic asked that he be released into her custody, but the police refused. Ultimately, all charges against Diggs and Hines were dropped. Diggs filed a federal lawsuit against Officers James Frascatore, Timothy Costello, Alex Lombardozzi, Jared Hospedales and others present whose names are not yet known. But these are just civil charges. The NYPD and Mayor de Blasio must take swift action. James Blake and others have called for his assailant to be fired. But Frascatore and his coconspirators should be arrested. They are a threat to public safety.

PROFILES IN PARADISELiving a life that proves getting is in the givingSince it was founded in 1972, Youth Haven has provided a safe harbor for traumatized abused, neglected and homeless children. The shelter now serves more than 2,400 children and family members every year. Jim Jessee joined the board of directors in 2011 and is completing a two-year term as president. Jim and his wife, Liz, have always been great leaders in the community ever since they moved to the Paradise Coast in 1998 after many visits over the previous 25 years. They both attended Greater Naples Leadership, where they learned about the communitys many possible avenues for volunteer activities. In addition to Youth Haven, The Shelter for Abused Women & Children has benefitted greatly from the couples generosity with their time, talent and treasure. Jims family is from Virginia but moved to West Virginia where he attended high school and played varsity football, basketball and baseball. After high school, Jim enrolled at Virginia Polytechnic Institute (now Virginia Tech). I was fortunate that Tech and I disagreed on the necessity of attendance, resulting in my transfer to Concord University in Athens, W. Va., Jim says. I say fortunate because without that, I would not have met Liz. The two married 16 days after the day they met which was quite an effort, since we did so in the Episcopal church during Lent, Jim says. Needless to say, the church was a big part of our volunteer activities early on. After graduation, Jim and Liz both taught high school in West Virginia for three years, earning a combined $5,200 a year, he recalls. Jim was dean of boys, assistant principal, basketball coach and golf coach. When an FBI agent visited the school and Jim learned that jobs with the agency started at $8,300 a year, he developed a burning passion to be an FBI agent. He passed the background checks and also survived agents training in Quantico, Va. And then the Jessees travel odyssey began. They made nine moves in 10 years, going from New York to Honolulu. Considering the fact that we were in Hawaii for three years, the rest of the time averaged out to a move a year, Jim says. Thank goodness we had the three years in Hawaii. Thats where we produced our daughter, Chandra although she was born in Seattle, thank you, Mr. Hoover an only child of two only children. When Procter and Gamble made Jim the ubiquitous offer he couldnt refuse, the young family moved to Cincinnati, where Jim became director of corporate security for the worldwide organization. Liz became involved in real estate and was a top residential producer for a number of years. They were both involved in charity and volunteer work for organizations in Cincinnati ranging from The United Way and the Indian Hill Historical Society to Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park and the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. They also delved into amateur theater with Village Stage of Indian Hill, which morphed into the Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati, where Jim served as a member of the board. In Naples, Jim and Liz have been active with Trinity-by-the-Cove Episcopal Church, where Jim served as senior warden and recently returned to the vestry. Other volunteer activities include the American Cancer Society, the Neighborhood Health Clinic and Gulfshore Playhouse. Founding members of the Playhouse Partners, they are chairing the professionals companys gala this year. Socially, Liz and Jim enjoy the Port Royal Club and Royal Poinciana Golf Club. I still have a great interest in golf although the interest level and the playing level have been separating over the years, he allows. They also enjoy fine dining, travel and cooking. Jim has taken numerous cooking classes and the couple has donated many gourmet dinners for silent auction items to benefit local charities including The Shelter for Abused Women & Children, Planned Parenthood, American Cancer Society, Archangels Fund for Collier County and The Scholarship Fund of the Port Royal Club. Getting is in the giving, Jim says. Its a motto by which he and Liz clearly abide. bobHARDEN firstname.lastname@example.org As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A baseball player.

Its famous for singing lumberjacks, the Ministry of Silly Walks, the Fish Slapping Dance and exploding penguins. Sketches would suddenly take a sharp turn and veer into something totally unexpected. The shows introduction, And now for something completely different, was an understatement. In a recent poll, the British voted the Dead Parrot sketch their very favorite. And when the troupe put on 10 nights of shows at Londons 02 Arena in 2014, a 50-foot blue fiberglass parrot dangled upside down from a crane in central London before it was ultimately laid to rest on the South Bank near Tower Bridge. The troupe, which now consists of Eric Idle, Michael Palin and Terry Jones in addition to Mr. Cleese and Mr. Gilliam, called the show Monty Python Live (Mostly) One Down, Five to Go, as Mr. Chapman had died in 1989. When Mr. Cleese gave the eulogy at his colleagues funeral, he solemnly declared that his friend and writing partner is no more. He has ceased to be, bereft of all life, he rests in peace. He kicked the bucket, popped the twig, bit the dust, snuffed it, breathed his last... The mourners, recognizing the same words that are used in the dead parrot sketch the two had written, laughed. And that is the power of humor. In anticipation of his 13-city tour with Mr. Idle that starts in Florida next month, Florida Weekly interviewed Mr. Cleese by phone last week. He was in California, gearing up for John Cleese and Eric Idle: Together Again At Last for the Very First Time.John Cleese has done a bunch of stuff that you havent. He probably has more money than you too Its always lovely to know you make people laugh, Mr. Cleese said. I used to think it was a luxury, but its more important than I thought. Its essential. He had a couple of realizations last year, he added, when the troupe performed at Londons O2 Arena. What a mess the world is in. Nevertheless, 16,000 people were together and happy for a while, and then when they went home, for a while after that. Its a very useful thing for a comedian to be able to do, (to make people happy.) Mr. Cleese has had an illustrious career in addition to the Monty Python TV show and films. He wrote and starred in the TV series Fawlty Towers and in the 1988 film A Fish Called Wanda. He has appeared in and provided voices for numerous other films, from Shrek to Harry Potter to Winnie the Pooh, and has replaced gadget-master Q in recent James Bond movies. His New York Times Bestselling autobiography, So Anyway, is scheduled to be re-released in paperback later this month (the cover has two blue parrot feathers floating in the background), and hes also in demand as a speaker about the necessity of creativity and humor in business. All this, crammed into 75 years of life.Florida turns out to be a pretty good place to practice your material before you perform for those fancy folks in New York CityRecently, Robert Siegel on NPRs All Things Considered interviewed both Mr. Cleese and Mr. Idle for eight minutes, but obligingly lost control just a few seconds into the interview when Mr. Cleese asked if they could make little noises while Mr. Siegel was reading the introduction. They proceeded to do so, peeping and growling and snorting, causing the host to laugh, then hijacked the rest of the interview, tossing lines and asides back and forth to each other like skilled basketball players ruling the court. The two start their tour Thursday and Friday, Oct. 1-2, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota and continue Saturday, Oct. 3, at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. Theyll hit the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach on Wednesday, Oct. 7, and play Fort Pierce, Miami, Clearwater, Orlando and Jacksonville before leaving the state for a few more performances in Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland. Why so many shows in Florida? Its the only place we could find people older than we are to entertain, Mr. Idle told NPR. But Mr. Cleese said theyre playing Florida first because the show is very much experimental, and very much improvisational, nothing weve done a great deal of. We didnt want to start (in New York City) and (immediately be) reviewed in the New York Times. There are certain kinds of verbal comedy where you can anticipate the audiences reaction, but anything thats more physical, you have to play it in front of an audience and find out how to play it, he said. The audience tells you how to play it, whats funny or what isnt. Very few people know this, he continued, but Groucho Marx and the Marx Brothers, when making a film, would take the humorous scenes out and play them in front of a live audience, to see how they reacted. You need to play with (humor) in front of an audience to find out how to do it. The Sunshine States extremely nice weather is another advantage, he says, as well as the fact that all the Florida venues can be reached by car. Id still rather get in a car and go five hours than go to the airport, go through the security, (endure all the) waiting, the delays (and deal with) the impossibility of these miniscule airplanes, the 6-foot-5inch performer said.If youve managed to get this far in the story, you shouldnt need a subheadline to encourage you to continue, should you? But here it is anyway, keep reading, and you may get to the part where John Cleese ... The inspiration for Together Again at Last for the Very First Time came from an event at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, Calif., when Mr. Cleese, who was on a book tour, asked Mr. Idle if hed interview him on stage. We had such a good evening and we laughed a great deal, Mr. Cleese said. So did the audience. We thought no more about it for several months, (though it) must have been in the back of our minds, he added. We were in New York for the TriBeCa Film Festival, for the 40th anniversary of The Holy Grail. We all wanted to do our show in Australia, but Michael (Palin) said no, very politely, he didnt want to do that. But over dinner the following night, he and Mr. Idle talked about since they couldnt get the entire Python troupe together, and the two of them had had such a good time together in Glendale, why not go on tour together? They mentioned it to promoter Phil McIntyre, who was responsible for their show at Londons O2, and he set up the forthcoming U.S. for them. Itll be similar to what they did last year for Mr. Cleeses book tour, but amped up. Were tweaking it up more, he said. Well have a musical section, and I do 15 minutes on my own. Theyll also show a small number of clips, but not too many. People basically want to see us and hear us, he said. Well do some sketches sitting down. We may do one or two other sketches standing up, he said. We havent figured out all the details. Its a very simple set, just the two of us in comfortable chairs, and then a couple chairs and a table for the interview sketches. He was not specific about what sketches theyll include, but he did say they had fun doing the Michelangelo and the Pope sketch at last years reunion shows, as well as the silly Anne Elk woman who keeps clearing her throat. We would try to break each other up, he said, confessing that he may have done a little more coughing than I shouldve done. The audience loved it. The reason: Theyd seen us do it correctly many times, but its much more fun and special to have a performance that is unique. The two also enjoyed themselves on stage in California when Mr. Idle interviewed Mr. Cleese about his book and the two reminisced about their Monty Python days, even reading a couple of sketches. It was quite surprising, how effortless it was, he said. Though scripted, John Cleese and Eric Idle: Together Again At Last for the Very First Time will also be improvisational. Once youre out and youre talking to the audience, you have a reservoir of ideas, thoughts and jokes, and you dont have to do them in the same order, Mr. Cleese explained.

you feel like going. You have a lot of material (from which to draw) and a very small portion that might be original for the night. You might tell a story you havent told for three years. Every now and then you add an extra anecdote or joke, and you think, I like that. Ill keep that. Theyll do a couple of sketches that present Mr. Idle in his best light, he said, and Mr. Idle wanted to show some of mine that he especially likes. One night, well put another one up there that hes not expecting. When it came to writing sketches, each Python had his own specialty. Eric tended to write very verbal stuff, and often just monologues, Mr. Cleese said. A lot of it was very verbal, playing with words. Gra (Graham Chapman) and I found it very funny when people argued, when people went into a shop and difficulties occurred in the transaction. I used to write sketches for Marty Feldman, where one person goes in and drives another one mad. While Mr. Cleese was good at plot and development, driving the sketch forward, Mr. Chapman excelled at suggesting unusual twists, he said. Mike (Palin) and Terry (Jones) wrote a more variety of sketches. They were a lot more adventurous visually than ours for example, the sketch about the deadly gent, they laughed so much they died, laughter being used in warfare on a larger scale. Theyd be more imaginative visually. The Together Again At Last tour will be fun, he promised. Python fans will love it. People not Python fans should stay away. It could threaten their sanity.Death againThe Pythons never swerved from tackling sacred cows and wrestling them to the ground (or even tossing them over castle walls), doing sketches that dealt with religion, death and sex. One skit, a TV talk show, featured a host and three corpses, including a vicar. Not getting any responses to his question as to whether theres life after death, the host declares that there isnt. When Mr. Cleese is told that, in the documentary Billy Connollys Big Send Off, Scottish comedian Billy Connolly said hed like his tombstone to read, Oh, Jesus Christ, is that the time already? and Mr. Idle said hed like an ATM built into his, so people could at least get money when they visited his gravesite, Mr. Cleese chuckled. How would he like to be remembered, when the time comes? Theres no mention of a blue parrot, either in eulogy or stone. His wishes, he said, are simple: Id like a little low-key 400-foot-high monument in Trafalgar Square that says, I may be gone for some time. The theme music for the very British Monty Pythons Flying Circus is the very American composition The Liberty Bell by John Philip Sousa. John Cleese, who was educated at Cambridge University, wrote his New York Times Bestselling autobiography, So, Anyway himself. In longhand. He claims to have used the eraser end of his pencil a lot, rewriting some sentences three or four times. Mr. Cleese has more than 4.5 million followers on Twitter. On its album You Cant Spell Slaughter Without Laughter, the post-hardcore rock band I Set My Friends on Fire has a song titled Reeses Pieces, I Dont Know Who John Cleese Is? John Cleese has had the Bemaraha wooly lemur (Avahi Cleesei) and an asteroid (9618 Johncleese) named in his honor. In David Ives short play The Universal Language, the word (in his fictional language) for the English language is johncleese. Tickets to the Monty Python reunion performance at Londons O2 Arena in July 2014 sold out in 45 seconds. Thats 20,000 tickets in less than a minute. When four shows were added, they sold out in an hour. Then five more shows were added, for a total of 10 performances. The five performers, all in their 70s, had a combined age of 357. The shows were held, in part, to raise money to pay the producer of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, as the players had lost a legal case and owed him legal fees and back royalties for the Tony Award-winning musical Spamalot. Before the above-mentioned shows, the last time the comedy troupe had performed sketches together for a live audience was in 1980 at the Hollywood Bowl.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 BEST FURNITURE STORE 2015 DESIGNER HOME DECOR AT WAREHOUSE PRICES! or HUGE New Container Of One-Of-A-Kind Furniture From India BEHIND THE WHEELJaguar F-Type R Coupe builds on Florida-style indulgenceIts time to fulfill pure driving fantasy. Thats the true expectation once a car passes the $100,000 threshold. The $129K Jaguar F-Type R Coupe seen here does not attract buyers who need a back seat for the family or a trailer hitch for the boat. Instead, this is the sports car for drivers looking for sophistication, power and plenty of flash. Jaguar took its time designing this one. The entire F-Type line pays tribute to its legendary predecessor E-Type with its long vented hood and stretched headlight design lines. But this is not a retro car. The F-Types makes its own mark with sharp chiseled looks and muscular wheel arches. Theres a handsome convertible version, but this coupe gave the designers the freedom to create metallic seduction. The roofline tapers inward and leaves the rear fenders with a racecar-like dominating stance. It is particularly striking in Florida where indulgence is usually met with a soft top. Vanity is not this F-Types only motivation, but it undeniably mixes look-at-me style into the engineering. It is in the details from the all-glass roof to the door handles that remain aerodynamically flush against the body until they excitedly deploy to greet the smart key. Once inside, the F-Type Coupe reveals a very thoughtful layout. The low-slung body is still comfortable for people more than 6 feet tall. The controls are simple, straightforward and intuitive. Best of all, there isnt an overload of buttons often seen in the age of technology. Instead every switch and knob is very purposeful, especially the one labeled Start. The 5.0-liter supercharged V8 fires up with a little roar as a reminder of the 550 horsepower that lives under the hood. But then the F-Type R settles into a more civil rumble that doesnt wake the neighborhood when sneaking out for late night driving adventures. When it is time for the open road, the Dynamic switch on the console allows the Jaguar to hunker down like a true jungle cat for its racetrack mode. The roar of the exhaust returns and now also spits and snarls like a wild animal a feature well worth the price of admission. The R model is the highest level of the F-Type family (the base coupe costs 38 percent less and its V6 offers 38 percent less power.) This supercharged Jag comes standard with all-wheel drive. The bias is to the rear wheels like any worthy sports car, but tail-happy hard cornering is quickly corrected with the computer sending power up front to help pull the car straight. Surefooted grip is the main theme of this coupe. It comes standard with torque vectoring, which increases the power to the outside wheel and holds better a driving line when cornering. Our tester even stops amazingly well with $12K worth of optional carbon ceramic brakes straight from Jaguars motorsports programs. All of this is exactly whats expected in a high-end sports car. The really impressive part is the F-Type R Coupes capacity for everyday civility. Wed all love to live the life of an irresponsible aristocrat with a 10-mile winding driveway, but our reality has commutes and errands. Sports cars fulfill a daydream in the fleeting moment when traffic has cleared or theres a new road to try. So the adaptability to be more than just a toy might be the true allure of the F-Type R. Jaguar says its computer analyzes road data 100 times per second and adjusts the suspension accordingly. What that means behind the wheel is the car feels very different racing past 70 mph than it does when the cruise control is set at 70 mph. Theres a similar adaptability in the seats. The sports buckets have a near infinite electronic adjustment to be programmed for everything from tight performance driving to supportive highway cruising. Even the all-wheel drive system has a rain/snow setting for real-world practicality. Theres a magnetism surrounding the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. The exterior grabs attention with unique looks and a terrific sound. Inside it is a true drivers car with everyday usability right down to a real trunk. Its hard to call this Jaguar the practical choice, but it certainly is a charismatic one. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

The law requires the records release only in compliance with a subpoena or an order of a court. AG Slatery said if there had been a comma after subpoena, a council subpoena would get the records, but without the comma, only court subpoenas. And in July, Andrea Cammelleri prevailed on her parking ticket challenge because there was no comma. A West Jefferson, Ohio, ordinance banned parking of any motor vehicle camper, trailer. A state appeals judge ruled that, with a comma after vehicle, Ms. Cammelleris truck would have been banned, but without it, only campers and trailers were. Great moments in gerrymanderingIn April, the City Council of Columbia, Missouri, rigged a specially drawn Community Improvement District to pass a sales tax increase. Under the law, if the District had no residents to vote, the election would be decided by the tax-friendly business owners. However, the council somehow missed that college student Jen Henderson, 23, actually lived there and had registered to vote, meaning the business owners could not vote and that the tax increase would be decided by ... Ms. Henderson. (In late August, the council postponed the election and at press time were in a quandary, as Ms. Henderson said shes against higher taxes.) The entrepreneurial spiritSpikes Tactical of Apopka, Fla., introduced its version of the AR-15 assault rifle this summer designed to never be used by Muslim terrorists. Laseretched on one side is a symbol of the Christian Crusades and on the other, language from Psalm 144. Spikes Tactical CEO Angela Register predicted brisk sales: Men like to accessorize their guns more than women like to accessorize their outfits. The continuing crisisA teenage girl in Wyandotte, Mich., using $9.95 tools from a website called FakeABaby.com, pretended for months to be pregnant (with abdomen extenders and ultrasound photos of her triplets). She received gifts, had a baby shower, joined expectant mother groups and even frightened her 16-year-old boyfriend enough that he began looking for full-time work to feed the soondue babies. However (obviously), the ruse fell apart in the 10th month (in August), drawing community outrage, but according to the sheriff, none of the victims who were fooled have come forward to press fraud charges. Cultural diversity While Deep South states courts are notorious for death sentences, the epicenter of capital punishment in recent years has shifted to Southern California, according to a September Slate.com analysis. While neither Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, nor Virginia has issued a death sentence this year, Riverside County, Calif., has recorded seven, and since 2010, Riverside and Los Angeles County have led the nation in death-row assignments. (Ironically, of course, California rarely actually executes anyone; its death row has 748 residents, and no one has walked the last mile since 2006.) Egypts notorious corruption apparently reached a new level of victimizing in the summer as Mariam Malak, one of the top-performing high school students in the entire country, not only failed all six of her final exams but received scores of zero in each. Her family, and a legion of supporters on social media, have demanded that the prime minister investigate, especially whether another student had paid to acquire Mariams scores or whether Mariam was failed intentionally because she is of Egypts Coptic Christian minority. Bright ideasThe Cambridge, Mass., company AOBiome believes we have dangerously stripped good bacteria from our skins via excessive cleaning and has introduced for sale Mother Dirt spray to add it back. Chemical engineer and cofounder Dave Whitlock told WBZ-TV in September that he personally has not taken a shower in over 12 years, but instead uses his odorless bacteriarestoring mist twice a day to cover himself with helpful dirt that activates the good bacteria. The company will soon begin clinical trials to demonstrate whether Mother Dirt (which also comes in shampoo form) can additionally improve certain skin conditions. Fine points of the lawCormega Copening, 17, and his girlfriend Brianna Denson, 16, of Fayetteville, N.C., are old enough to have sex (adults, according to state law) but apparently too young to exchange nude photos. Mr. Copening was charged with five counts of sexual exploitation for receiving sexts from Ms. Denson and having nude photos of himself on his phone (i.e., exploiting himself). Ms. Denson accepted a lesser sentence and is serving a tedious, restrictive probation; she had also been charged with self-exploiting. After much criticism for threatening felony charges and sex-offender registration, prosecutors offered Mr. Copening a similar tedious, restrictive probation in September.

YP of Naples hosts a variety of charity and social events to ensure its demographic has opportunities to engage with the community alongside peers and business leaders. If youre involved with philanthropy and have a good group of friends which are things we try to provide it will give you reasons to stay here, Mr. Walker continues. YP of Naples is just one group dedicated to fostering millennial talent in Southwest Florida to ensure the area has plenty offer the next generation of leaders. The Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce frequently polls its member businesses and has found that many have trouble keeping young talent. People who move here to start their careers often find themselves feeling isolated and without the cultural or professional opportunities available in other areas around the country, according to Chelsea Clementi, the chambers director of marketing and communications and staff liaison to its YP group. Ms. Clementi says the Bonita YP members overwhelmingly want professional development and connections. We dont want to be a social group, she says. We want to help develop future leaders. Since the local economy started its recovery in 2012, membership in the Bonita group has grown from fewer than 100 newsletter recipients to more than 1,000 (the group does not have a paid membership base and uses newsletter subscribers to estimate its size).The nonprofit factorSome area nonprofits are engaging young professionals in hopes of seeing an infusion of young blood into their volunteer pool. Because the majority of older, retired volunteers vacate Southwest Florida during the summer months, a solid base of younger, working people who are here fulltime can help nonprofits keep fundraising efforts and volunteer services going year-round. Young Executives of the David Lawrence Center was founded five years ago and was one of the first such organizations in the local nonprofit community. The group has brought an infusion of innovation to DLC and has helped staff become more targeted and creative with tasks such as social media campaigns, according to Scott Burgess, CEO of the mental health and substance abuse treatment center that serves Collier County children, adults and families. I think that demographic group is very creative about utilizing new technology and innovations, Mr. Burgess says. Theyre bringing a really impressive energy and creativity to us.

Allison Durian, associate director of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, serves as chairperson of Young Executives of the DLC and says the group is particular about finding people who are invested in the centers mission to promote mental health and treat substance abuse in the community. I want everyone in this group to have a good reason to be part of this organization, she says. Its important to hop on board with a cause that you personally champion. She agrees with Mr. Burgess that the Young Executives group has brought an increased awareness of DLC services to a younger demographic through social media and creative events targeting a younger audience. A lot of what our young executives bring to the David Lawrence Center is a new and refreshing perspective on awareness raising, she says. Were mobilizing the young community in a way that maybe it wasnt reaching before, just because of our social connections. The groups most recent event, a sunset cruise about the Naples Princess in June, had almost 150 guests and raised $2,000 for the centers programs. Humane Society Naples is one of the latest nonprofits to climb aboard the young professionals train (United Arts Council of Collier County has its group, The Contemporaries; NWWF/Naples Children & Education Foundation has Friends of the Foundation; and The Shelter for Abused Women & Children has its Next Generation committee, among others). Rachael Johnston, marketing coordinator at HSN, says staff had noticed attendance skewing younger over recent years at the societys annual blacktie Pet Lovers Gala. We wanted to take advantage of that, she says about the HSN Pawfessionals, a group organized to wrangle the young energy that has infused the HSN ranks and channel it into increased awareness about the organization among younger working people in the community. The group hosted its inaugural Bow Wow Brunch on a recent Sunday afternoon at The Continental. For $40 each, guests dined and sipped craft cocktails to music by the local band The Incorrigibles. The brunch attracted more than 200 people and raised more than $7,200 through ticket sales and raffles. While the longestablished HSN volunteer corps is mostly involved in day-to-day care of the animals and other shelter activities, volunteer members of the Pawfessionals will circulate in different professional environments and social circles, says Christy Saunders, HSN director of fundraising. (The Bow Wow Brunch) was a great way to raise awareness about what we do, Ms. Saunders says. We do want to target young professionals as theyre getting more involved in Naples.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 Learning leads to better patient outcomesLearning leads to better performance, and at NCH, our learning organization leads to better outcomes for patients. I was reminded of this recently when I observed from the back of Telford Auditorium as 53 registered nurses from our ICU, ER, 6 South, Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging and Rehabilitation and transitional care, interventional radiology and education departments voluntarily participated in a two-day, 16-hour course to become Stroke Certified Registered Nurses. Course objectives included identifying different types of strokes and following guidelines for managing strokes, performing advanced neurological assessments for stroke patients and teaching patients and family about prevention and recognition of strokes. Stroke prevention and early recognition are important for all of us. It is so much better to recognize the signs (physical abnormalities) and symptoms (feelings) in order to avoid having a stroke, as opposed to having to be treated for a stroke. The risk of a stroke doubles for each decade after age 55. Age is one risk that cannot be modified. High blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, elevated lipids (fats in your blood), cardiovascular disease, carotid stenosis (narrowing of the blood vessels which go to the brain) and an irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) all increase risk and are somewhat modifiable. African-Americans, Hispanics and Asian groups have a higher risk and worse o utcomes than Caucasians. Genetics also matter, as there is a higher risk when ones parent has had a stroke. Most important, quickly recognizing that you or a loved one is having a stroke can save the brain, decrease disability and hasten recovery. Classic signs of stroke include: allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org HEALTHY LIVINGResearchers find more evidence of link between stress and Alzheimers disease THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA WEEKLYUniversity of Florida Health researchers have uncovered more evidence of a link between the brains stress response and a protein related to Alzheimers disease. The research, conducted on a mouse model and in human cells, found that a stress-coping hormone released by the brain boosts the production of protein fragments. Those protein pieces, known as amyloid beta, clump together and trigger the brain degeneration that leads to Alzheimers disease. The findings were published recently in The EMBO Journal by a group that includes Dr. Todd Golde, director of the UF Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease and a professor in the UF College of Medicines department of neuroscience. The research contributes to further understanding the potential relationship between stress and Alzheimers disease, a disorder believed to stem from a mix of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors. The findings add detailed insight into the stress mechanisms that might promote at least one of the Alzheimers pathologies, Dr. Golde says. Figuring out the non-genetic factors that heighten the risk of Alzheimers disease is especially challenging; the recent study is one step in a long process of looking at the effects of stress and other environmental factors, he adds. It could also point the way to a novel treatment approach in the future, he says. Here is what researchers found: Stress causes the release of a hormone called corticotrophin releasing factor, or CRF, in the brain. That, in turn, increases production of amyloid beta. As amyloid beta collects in the brain, it initiates a complex degenerative cascade that leads to Alzheimers disease. During laboratory testing, mouse models that were exposed to acute stress had more of the Alzheimers-related protein in their brains than those in a control group, researchers found. The stressed mice also had more of a specific form of amyloid beta, one that has a particularly pernicious role in the development of Alzheimers disease. To better understand how CRF increases the amount of Alzheimersrelated proteins, researchers then treated human neurons with CRF. That caused a significant increase in the amyloid proteins involved in Alzheimers disease. Those and other complex experiments reveal more about the mechanics of a likely relationship between stress and Alzheimers disease. The stress hormone, CRF, causes an enzyme known as gamma secretase to increase its activity. That, in turn, causes more of the Alzheimers-related protein to be produced, Dr. Golde says. Modifying environmental factors such as stress is yet another approach to warding off Alzheimers disease, and one that is easier than modifying the genes that cause the disorder, he adds. One possible solution blocking the CRF receptor that initiates the stress-induced process that generates Alzheimers-related proteins didnt work. Researchers are now looking at an antibody that could be used to block the stress hormone directly, Dr. Golde says. These softer, non-genetic factors that may confer risk of Alzheimers disease are much harder to address, he says. But we need more novel approaches in the pipeline than we have now. The idea of looking more closely at the mechanism linking stress and Alzheimers disease came from Dr. Seong-Hun Kim, a former assistant professor in the UF College of Medicines department of pharmacology and therapeutics and now a psychiatrist in Seattle. Much of the projects experiments were done by Hyo-Jin Park, who was a postdoctoral associate during the project and is now an assistant scientist in the College of Medicines department of aging and geriatric research. Kevin Felsenstein, Ph.D., an associate professor of neuroscience in UFs College of Medicine, also made major contributions to the work. The research was supported by multiple grants from the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. SEE WEISS, A21

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIts not just the fur or the purr that cats use to hold us spellbound: Its those eyes. Whether they are blue, green, gold, copper or some variation of those shades, a cats eyes are one of his most beautiful features. Heres how they come to be that way. Eye color is genetically linked to coat color. Kittens are born with blue eyes, which may stay that way or change color as the kitten matures. For instance, all pointed cats have blue eyes. Cats who are solid white or mostly white may have blue, green, gold or copper eyes. The most common eye colors range from greenish-yellow to gold. You may have heard that white cats are always deaf. Not necessarily. Some are, and some arent. White cats with blue eyes are more likely to be deaf, however, than white cats with gold or green eyes. Deafness is associated only with the dominant white gene, not the white spotting gene, says feline geneticist Leslie A. Lyons, Ph.D. Theres a high association of dominant white with deafness and dominant white with blue eyes, and if you are dominant white with blue eyes, youre more likely to be deaf. Between 10 and 20 percent of white cats with eyes of other colors may be deaf. White cats with only one blue eye may be deaf only in the ear thats on the same side as the blue eye. Eyes with the brilliant copper of a shiny new penny or the bright green of an emerald usually are the result of selective breeding, but genes dont discriminate. Those eye colors can appear in cats without a pedigree as well. Pedigreed cats noted for their distinctive eye color include the Burmese, with large, round gold eyes; the tonkinese, with sparkling aqua eyes; the Egyptian mau, with gooseberry green eyes; and the Russian blue, with vivid green eyes. Some cats have odd eyes, meaning one eye is blue and one is green or gold. The scientific term for this is heterochromia, from the Greek words hetero, meaning different, and chromia, referring to color. The difference in color might not be noticeable in a kitten, but changes gradually as the kitten moves toward adulthood. We usually see odd eyes in white cats or cats with the white spotting gene, such as bicolor and tuxedo cats. Breeds in which odd eyes are common include Turkish angoras and Turkish vans. A description of angoras stated that the eyes should be as green as the lake and as blue as the sky. Other breeds that may sport odd eyes are Persian, sphynx, Oriental shorthair and Japanese bobtail cats. Odd eyes occur when a dominant white gene (meaning it masks other colors) or a white spotting gene blocks the concentration and distribution of natural pigments within the iris tissues during development. Its unusual to see odd eyes in cats who lack both the dominant white and the white spotting genes, but it can happen. An unusual and attractive look is the dichromatic, or dichroic, eye, usually seen in white cats. Thats one with two colors in one iris. For instance, the eye might be half green and half blue or have a green iris encircled by yellow. One or both eyes can be dichromatic, sometimes with each eye mirroring the other. Even more rarely, only a section of the eye may be a different color. Think of a pie-sliced shape of brown in what is otherwise a blue or green eye. Those eyes arent just odd; theyre downright weird, but undoubtedly beautiful. Multiple genes determine eye color.

Thats a joke that circulates around social media this time of year. And theres no denying it, its officially Pumpkin Spice Season. Some for-a-limited-time-only pumpkin products out there sound tasty, while others sound downright awful. Ben & Jerrys Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream with Graham Cracker could tempt me right off my low-carb diet, but Organic Pumpkin Spice Kale Chips? Not so much. When it comes to Pumpkin Spice Milano Cookies, Im all in, but I dont think I can endorse Pumpkin Corn Tortilla Chips. I mean, when I think tortilla, I think salsa, and when I think salsa, pumpkin is the last thing on my mind but, who knows? Maybe if the chips were paired with one of the gazillion varieties of pumpkin-flavored beer currently on the shelves The thing is, everyone went crazy (especially girls in yoga pants and Uggs) for Pumpkin Spice Lattes when Starbucks introduced the fall favorite in 2003. And then, slowly but surely, f ood, candle and soap manufacturers got on the pumpkin spice hayride so they, too, could profit from our innate love of all things fall. Unfortunately, we dont have fall here in Southwest Florida or as my friend Asha points out, We have Big Summer and Little Summer. Big Summer is May-November. Then we get a slight respite from the heat and humidity during Little Summer, which is DecemberApril but, because theres always a kicker, we have to endure traffic and tourists during Little Summer. Sigh. So while our Northern friends and family members welcome fall with cool, crisp temperatures, vivid autumn foliage and yes, yoga pants and Uggs, we crank our air-conditioners down to 70 degrees and pretend its fall by sipping Pumpkin Spice Lattes and filling up on Pumpkin Spice Oreos. When the temperature actually dips from the low-90s into the mid-80s, we try even harder by wearing pumpkin-colored scarves and long-sleeve shirts because they look so stylish in the September issue of Vogue. But Southwest Florida Septembers are not like other Septembers around the country, and even while my autumnloving friend Alexis tries to convince me that I can make fall happen in my mind if I concentrate hard enough, all the pumpkin-flavored products in the world cannot convince me its not hot outside. I will note, however, that PSL on ice is pretty fabulous. It wont make me go out and buy a pair of Uggs, but its a tasty Big Summer treat. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B10 The dogs lifeFor local shops, canines mean businessGlance through their modeling portfolios and youll see the camera loves Sarge, Lexi and Tesla. Big eyes, expressive faces, a natural seated or lounging pose, often in the grass. The epitome of model perfection. Theyre among an elite group of more than 25 Naples and Bonita Springs residents taking the advertising world by storm. And theyre complete dogs. Literally. The canines and their fellow models and actors are clients of Michele Ryan, a Naples dog trainer and retired professional dancer who recently tapped into the growing demand for animals in advertising. Lexi, a golden retriever, just completed a commercial shoot for Duke Energy; Bailey another golden, was featured in a national Anhueser-Busch print ad as a 7-monthold puppy; and a five-member canine posse wrapped up a photo shoot in South Beach last week for a Fossil print ad. Eight clients, a hodgepodge of purebreds and mixed breeds have been selected for an editorial fashion shoot next week in Tampa. The gig was coordinated be Janelle LaFond, a Tampa wardrobe stylist who runs an online boutique. The style pages will be published in three local magazine and shopped around for national placement. Vogue, Glamour and Harpers are a few that have been mentioned, Ms. Ryan says. Using animals in print and TV advertising works. Many memorable commercials include them: Stuart, a TV-watching terrier for Xfinity, the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales playing football in the snow, and the past few Doritos Super Bowl spots featuring cats and dogs, most notably a missing cat. Statistics show businesses using dogs in commercials, print ads or marketing get 55 to 60 percent more business than without an animal, says Ms. Ryan. Theyre a memory point. Scholarly research delving into the psychology behind it notes people respond emotionally to animals. Some companies build their brand with an animal.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGThe more things change, the more the Fed stays the sameSo I turned 40 this month and decided to celebrate at Disney World with my family. When I entered the park, I was given this huge, obnoxious birthday pin to wear on my shirt that had my name on it along with a big number As if I didnt feel old enough as it is. And because it is the Happiest Place on Earth, every employee is obligated to wish you a very happy birthday. On paper it may seem like a really cool idea for random strangers to wish you a very happy birthday every two seconds (even in the restroom) but in actuality, it is better. Way better. Like I finally feel like the cool kid in high school that I never was but always wanted to be. I love that place. Other than my trip to Disney World, the rest of my birthday was kind of a letdown. I thought I would feel a lot different after I hit this birthday milestone but life moves on, and today I dont much has changed from last month. In the financial world, we were expecting to hit a different type of milestone when the Federal Reserve was supposed to finally raise its benchmark interest rate for the first time since 2004. This was the most anticipated Fed release in recent memory. The Fed had been telegraphing its intentions for months that it was ready to raise the Fed Funds rate from zero as the economy rebounded from the financial crisis and great recession. Economic numbers looked great, employment was picking up, everything was set, and then... nothing. After all of this anticipation, Janet Yellen and her friends decided to leave interest rates exactly where they were. Not only that, but they indicated in the Feds statement that they were in no rush to raise rates even going forward. So why didnt the Fed move on rates and what does that mean for the average investor? The U.S. Federal Reserve actually has two equal mandates. The first is to keep prices stable. The second is to maximize employment. This is different from other central banks, like the Bundesbank in Germany, where its only objective is to keep inflation in check. This is because when the Bundesbank was formed in 1957, people could still remember having to buy a loaf of bread with a wheelbarrow full of Marks. So because of these dual mandates, the Fed always has to balance between pushing the economy too hard and having high inflation and putting pressure on prices while keeping growth low. So when you look at the Feds decision last week through the lens of its dual mandate, it is easy to see why it decided to keep rates low and continue to stimulate the economy. On one hand, there is no threat of inflation. On the contrary, prices are actually rising much less than even the Feds target inflation rate. So keeping rates low to continue stimulating economic growth so far has not led to price increases as many had feared. Recently, falling energy prices have even some worried that we will see deflation in the years ahead. Therefore mandate number one, keeping prices stable, is helped by not raising rates. The Feds second mandate, stimulating growth, is also supported by keeping rates low. Low interest rates boost the housing market, the auto market, consumer spending via low credit card interest, and corporate investments. Higher rates could but a damper on all of these forms of spending. Add to this the concerns over an economic slowdown in China, which was one of the primary growth drivers for the world economy over the last decade, and it was a nobrainer to keep feeding gas to the fire. So what does continued low rates mean for the average investor? First, if you are a saver, this isnt good news. Bank interest rates measured in fractions of a percent will continue to be the norm, at least for the near term. But if you are a borrower, it is still a great time to buy a house or car at lock in that low rate. Second, ironically, a Fed on hold is both a short-term and long-term negative for the stock market. I say ironically because low rates are often cited as one of the reasons for the massive stock run up over the last few years. The fact that the Fed did not raise rates is negative in the short run because it adds uncertainty to the market. When will the Fed act and by how much? Investors hate uncertainty, so more money is now sitting on the sideline than if the Fed started to move. And in the long run, the Fed may not have the ammunition to fight a more significant threat to the market by cutting rates if it never raises them. Does this mean I am pulling out of the equity markets? Absolutely not. But for a central bank that supposedly prides itself on its transparency, it is sure making a lot of people anxious with its indecision. And nervous investors probably will mean huge volatility swings as they abandon a buy and hold strategy and instead turn into short-term traders. Dont you make that mistake as well. Stay the course and everything will be OK. As for me, Im making plans to go to the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. Anyone want to join me?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 Bells labradoodle Lily and Dan Schuylers red Labs Gracie and Angel. The duo came up with the name 10 years ago during a brainstorming session with their advertising agent. The dogs bios are also posted on the businesss website. We wanted to include the names of all three dogs but it was just too long, Mr. Schuyler says. Then we started thinking Tiffany & Co. and Lily & Co. was perfect. Lily arrived on the island 11 years ago to a lot of fanfare. Shes an eighth-generation labradoodle from the original Australian breeder who introduced the world to the popular Lab and poodle mix. Its a small island and everyone knows Karen and knew she was getting this puppy. She waited a year to get Lily, says Mr. Schuyler. We had a big party when Lily arrived at the airport. It was a big deal. Its been a party since, with Lily wearing tiaras and dripping with diamonds in the stores print ads. The store hosts an annual birthday bash, which last year raised $15,000 for the Animal Refuge Center, a no-kill shelter in North Fort Myers. Lilys advertising debut was also a major business coup. Three weeks before the stores grand opening, Lily & Co. ran teaser print ads showing its adorable and very photogenic namesake wearing a $29,000 Marya Dabrowski necklace. The next day while Mr. Schuyler was power-washing the parking lot, a woman pedaled over to the store. She said she wanted to see the necklace the dog was wearing, says Mr. Schuyler. She bought it and some watches. It was a $35,000 sale. I called Karen and said I think were on to something. Ms. Ryans Train Pawsitive represents a variety of clients from miniature schnauzers and shih tzus and huskies to shelter rescues and 100-plus-pound bull and Italian mastiffs. The 10-week modeling and acting class includes a professional portrait session. The classes are fairly new, an idea she conceived late last year while pondering advanced classes she could offer her canine clients. During her dancing career Ms. Ryan toured with theater companies and performed with The Ramones, Usher and Janet Jackson, growing a list of show business contacts, production companies and a close relationship with California agent Gloria Winship who has been in the business 40 years. I wanted to do something totally different that wasnt being done, Ms. Ryan says. Gloria thought it was a great idea and calls whenever she has a client in Florida looking for animal talent. Im her on-set trainer for Southwest and Central Florida and Miami. Acting and modeling training requires solid obedience skills following basic sit, down, stay and come commands. Dogs also have to be desensitized to lights, camera and action and socialize with different people, places, things and noises. Golden retrievers and Labradors are the most requested breeds; theyre also the most popular family dog options. Ms. Ryan represents 10. Dogs are paid anywhere from $100 to $400 and up for their time. What I love is that any dog can do this and its not as much about appearance as it is with human models, she says. Owners love to show off their dog who doesnt and its plain fun. Owners just beam with pride and the dogs have fun. Sometimes dogs just cant help being dogs and make, pardon the pun, faux paws. During Lexis Duke Energy shoot she leaped over coffee table and sofa, landing on Ms. Ryan hidden behind the furniture. The cast members and camera crew were just laughing, she says. It was so funny and she was so graceful; she didnt knock anything over. A dog that can jump can get in movies. There was also the case of Rockie, a miniature schnauzer, who unbeknownst to trainer and owner had peed on a chair while waiting his turn during the Fossil photo shoot. The funniest thing was he didnt get himself wet, Ms. Ryan chuckles. Hes the funniest, most sociable and loveable dog. Nothing fazes him. Long before paddleboarding became a thing, people would snap pictures of Paige Bakhaus standing on her board, her little Yorkie Layla peering over the tip. Layla was always with me and everybody thought it was great, says Ms. Bakhaus, the owner of Hooked on SUP at the Cape Haze Marina in Charlotte County. When we were redoing our logo and looking through pictures, Layla on the board really captured the essence of who we are. Layla, 12, and her 2-year-old siblings, Baily, also a Yorkie, and the newest addition, Georgia, a 45-pound miniature pig, greet guests at the business. Our animals are a big part of who we are and a huge part of our lives, says Ms. Bakhaus. When you come here it feels like youre hanging out with a family. We have people come by just to see Georgia. Paddleboarding isnt her favorite thing but she likes boating and swimming. She and Bailey get on the sandbar and run like crazy. Its so cute because shell buck and do a 360 like a bronco. When Barry OBrien began his new career as a Realtor with Keller Williams in Palm Beach Gardens, he looked at his colleagues business cards, noting an abundance of suits and ties and the irony that most of the times they dressed more causally. For his card, he used a photo taken at a golf tournament, a cigar in mouth and his now 11-year-old fluffy white bichon frise Alex in his arms. I broke all the rules, he says. I figured its laidback, its Florida. I just wanted to introduce a sense of humor. Mr. OBrien gets the occasional comment about Alex and he points out the irony of posing with a little dog while another Realtor friend in Alabama advertises herself on billboards with her big German shepherd. At Lily & Co. visitors come in just to see Lily, Gracie and Angel. The two Labs are the stores official greeters, trained to take positions at the front door whenever they hear a car door close. We have regular guests that stop by the store even before they check into their hotel to get their dog fix, says Mr. Schuyler. Pets are a big deal to people and our dogs are a huge part of Lily & Co. When we dont have them here people get upset. A local doctor also picked up on the dogs popularity and calming effect. Hes been referring patients to the store for pet therapy. We didnt know until we saw a lady in the lounge petting the dogs and crying, Mr. Schuyler says. She was sent over because she lost her husband the month before. Lily, a diva, continues to star in the gallerys advertising, photographed decked out in jewels, drinking a cup of cappuccino, wearing a toque and holding a spatula. She won the Smart Show jewelry expos national Top Dog Award. We were at an international jewelry show and one of our vendors strolled by and looked through our book of advertisements, says Mr. Schuyler. He stopped at Lily and said to throw the others away, use Lily and youll be successful. Not all dogs have their day and some just arent cut out for show business. Ms. Ryan can usually tell if a canine is destined for its moment in the spotlight. Shes also contemplating cat modeling and acting. There are callouts for cats, she says. Some companies want sociable cats and kittens. And that could prove very interesting given the finicky nature of the feline, known as next to impossible to herd.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 Split off from Kraft Foods (now Kraft Heinz) in 2012, I got to keep the global snack businesses, and now carry a market value near $68 billion. Some of my brands are quite old, with Cadbury dating back to 1824, Dentyne to 1899, Nabisco to 1901 and Triscuit to 1902. Eight of my brands, including Oreo, Tang, Trident and Cadbury, generate more than $1 billion in revenue annually. Another 44 brands generate more than $100 million apiece. I employ more than 100,000 people. Im No. 1 globally in cookies, chocolate and candy, and No. 2 in gum. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Stop Being So IrrationalWhen it comes to financial decisions as well as non-financial ones most of us think irrationally much of the time. The fascinating field of behavioral economics sheds much light on this. For example, in an experiment, when members of a wine club were told a bottle of wine cost $45, they preferred it over a $5 bottle, even though both actually held the same wine. We tend to attribute more value to things that cost more and this can be costly to us. In another scenario, imagine two stores trying to unload an item that has been priced at $5. One store advertises it at 60 percent off and the other announces that it has been discounted by $3. Both stores are selling it for $2 now, but consumers are more likely to be drawn to the 60 percent sale, as it seems like a deeper discount. Meanwhile, most of us think were above-average drivers, due to our tendency to be optimistic. This can be costly in investing, if we give short shrift to the possibility that a stock is overvalued or may fall. The bandwagon effect suggests that we often do or think things solely because many other people do so, too. Unfortunately, by sticking with the herd especially in the stock market we often set ourselves up to fail. As Warren Buffett has advised, a path to profit is to be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy. Stock market crashes are good times to buy, not sell, even though others are selling. The strategy of value investing, which Buffett has practiced, is based on not following the crowd. Value investors seek companies that are trading for considerably less than theyre worth. They owe their bargain prices to a general lack of respect from the market. They tend to be overlooked, forgotten, unloved and underestimated but to still have solid growth potential. Learn more in Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes by Gary Belsky and Thomas Gilovich (Simon & Schuster, $16) and Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely (Harper Perennial, $16). Fictitious ContractsOne of my dumbest investments was in RINO International, a Chinese wastewater treatment equipment maker that was later accused of fraud. I bought in around $18 per share in late 2010, only to see the stock crash when various allegations were made. I sold for $2.86 per share. I.B., New York CityThe Fool Responds: Ouch. One lesson here is to be careful with penny stocks those trading for less than about $5 per share. RINO wasnt a penny stock when you bought, but it had been, two years earlier. Indeed, it surged from $3.50 per share to about $28 just throughout 2009.Much of its troubles began when research firm Muddy Waters claimed that while RINOs regulatory filings in China listed 2009 revenue of $11 million, it reported $193 million in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Waters alleged that some companies claimed by RINO as major customers denied buying from RINO. Investigations ensued, and RINO eventually admitted that at least two of its contracts were fictitious. The company was delisted from the Nasdaq.Another lesson here is to be careful investing in Chinese companies and other non-U.S. enterprises. The U.S. has certainly experienced some stock fraud, but its laws, regulations and disclosure requirements are among the strongest in the world. China is a tempting investment prospect due to its massive population and growth rate, but investing there requires extra due diligence. Money in MediaShares of entertainment giant Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) tumbled 19 percent in August, due to a broad-based selloff in media stocks. This presents a buying opportunity for long-term investors.Time Warners last quarter was strong, despite being a rough period for its rivals. Revenue increased 8 percent year over year, while adjusted operating income jumped 15 percent and adjusted EPS was up 28 percent.Perhaps most important, Time Warners cable properties performed well in the quarter as operating income from its Turner networks increased 20 percent. HBO continued to grow and improve on its competitive position, though operating income fell, primarily due to costs associated with the launch of its streaming service, HBO Now. Of all the media stocks, Time Warner may be in the best position. Its Warner Bros. unit brings in syndication revenue from shows such as Seinfeld and The Big Bang Theory, and HBOs seems promising, as the value of its quality content continues to grow. HBO and its sister network Cinemax received 131 Primetime Emmy nominations, and the company set records for viewership with the fifth season of Game of Thrones. Turner Networks, meanwhile, continues to thrive, benefiting from lower programming costs and the licensing of original content to Hulu.With a relatively low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 16 and a dividend yielding around 2 percent, Time Warner is worth consideration for your portfolio. I trace my roots back to a merger of two farming tractor companies in 1925. During World War II, I provided tractors, motor graders, generator sets and special diesel engines for M4 tanks. Today, based in Peoria, Illinois, Im a global industrial giant, with annual revenue topping $50 billion. Im the premier maker of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives. I employ more than 110,000 people and helped build the Hoover Dam and other famous dams, the Pennsylv ania Turnpike, pipelines, power plants,highways and several Worlds Fairs. Who am I? (Answer: Caterpillar) Just 30 CompaniesQWhats the Dow Jones Industrial Average? B.L., Santa Maria, CaliforniaAThe Dow, often seen as representing the entire stock market, is actually an index of just 30 companies. It started in 1896 with 12 companies, and of those, only General Electric remains in the current 30. Other charter members included U.S. Leather (dissolv ed in 1952), U .S. Rubber (became Uniroyal, now part of Michelin), American Tobacco (broken up due to antitrust concerns), Laclede Gas (still around), and Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad (absorbed by U.S. Steel). An interesting (and not very good) thing about the Dow is that its priceweighted, so that stocks with high prices influence it far more than other huge companies that simply have lower stock prices. For example, Goldman Sachs, recently priced near $180 per share, has about twice the influence in the index as Johnson & Johnson (priced near $90), even though J&Js market value is more than three times larger. The components dont change too often, but there has been a lot of shuffling over time.

Gulfshore Homes Cielo Model Open in Seneca at Talis ParkTalis Park announced the 4,067 square feet Cielo furnished model by Gulfshore Homes is now open in the North Naples communitys Seneca neighborhood. Senecas 43 lakefront home sites feature stunning water and multiple fairway views. Each of the sites will accommodate residences from 3,500 to 5,500 square feet. Custom home and lot packages are priced from $1.75 million. One developer owned home site remains available in Seneca. Gulfshore Homes Cielo model is priced at $2,545,000. The Cielos great room floor plan features three bedrooms, three full-baths and two half-baths, a library/study, a formal dining room, wine cellar, island kitchen, an outdoor living area with a summer kitchen and a pool and spa, and a three-car garage. The Cielo model showcases an interior by Daniel Kilgore, Senior Designer at Soco Interiors. Kilgores contemporary coastal design integrates coastal architectural elements with contemporary flair. The color palette is light with white walls accented by hints of pear and cool gray. Dark wood stains are incorporated in the furniture, ceiling beams, and walnut hardwood flooring throughout the living areas. The ambience is casual and carefree, with indoor and outdoor living spaces integrated for relaxed day-to-day life. Double doors open the Cielo to a foyer where a travertine tile flooring inlay makes an immediate statement. A threestep oval ceiling detail is complemented by three pendant lights resembling jellyfish. Artwork is displayed in wall niches over elegantly painted chests. The foyers see-through views provide a testament to Senecas captivating ambiance.The flooring in the Cielos study transitions to a gray-toned carpet. A feature wall includes built-in bookcases in charcoal gray flanking a niche where a custom built-in sofa offers a reading spot accompanied by swing-arm lamps. Artwork adorns the wall space above. On the opposite wall, a partners desk floats in front of three windows. On either side of the desk, two armchairs are upholstered in gray linen. A wall niche accommodates a floating console with a television mounted above. The niche and ceiling coffer are accented with a metallic cork covering. The Cielos great room offers two seating areas. The first is gathered around a feature wall with a television and fireplace. On the fireplace wall, grooved white tile extends to the ceiling. The linear firebox includes a dark gray quartz stone surround that continues behind the television. A sofa is accompanied by two club chairs on one side with a decorative bench on the other. The fabrics are off-white nubby linen. A cocktail table is crafted from a reclaimed tree stump adorned with silver leaf and glass top. The second seating arrangement features four club chairs in a light tan linen with a white leather ottoman. A curved dry bar, faced with beautiful white glass tile and topped with gray quartz, adds practicality without impeding the view into the wine room where white stacked stone provides bright texture on the wall behind a fabulous display of wine in freely-suspended wire racks. Overhead, the great room showcases large exposed trusses in a contemporary crisscross design for dramatic impact while wide sliding glass doors open the entire area to the outdoors.Flowing openly from the living areas, the gourmet kitchen features a custom island in an inverted T-shape. The island base cabinetry is executed in a rich dark brown finish to match the wood floor and features a white quartz top with ripples of gray. The long side of the T faces the range to accommodate the sink and dishwasher. Dark wood barstools, upholstered in a light tan linen, are aligned along either side of the stem of the T. Contrasting perimeter cabinetry is finished in light gray with solid white quartz countertops, while the harmonious stone backsplash melds complementary tones of light grays, whites, and neutrals. The kitchen also features a large walk-in pantry.In the adjacent dining room, Kilgore reintroduces the oval ceiling motif with a geometric cutout around it. The flooring also harks back to the foyer with a travertine stone inlay that suggests a rug underneath the table. The wood table showcases a dark finish and is accompanied by six matching side chairs with upholstered seats as well as host and hostess chairs in a light linen. Sliding glass doors open the dining room to the lanai.The Cielos lanai includes a cocktail fire table surrounded by two outdoor sofas and four upholstered ottomans. A television is wall-mounted over a console flanked on either side by custom iron screens that offer eye-catching architectural detail. The outdoor kitchen features cypress cabinetry stained a dark brown and a quartz countertop in a light sand color. The dining arrangement includes a painted metal table and seating for eight. The Cielos master bedroom features a neutral textured carpet and a palette of creams, ivories, blue, and aqua. The bed showcases an upholstered headboard with silver nail head detailing flanked by silver leafed chests displaying a geometric pattern. An upholstered bench sits at the foot of the bed, while a dark credenza includes doors inlayed with mother-of-pearl. The sitting area features two pale cream linen club chairs flanking a weathered teak table. Grey marble flooring in the master bathroom is juxtaposed with white vanity cabinetry topped in light gray quartz countertops. The flooring material continues in the shower where it is accented with gray and soft blue glass tile.Talis Park is located in North Naples on Livingston Road just north of Immokalee Road.

C15 The Wind Orchestra of Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Bower School of Music & the Arts has been invited to perform at New Yorks renowned Carnegie Hall in November and has begun fundraising to help students pay for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The 51-member orchestra will play benefit concerts Sunday, Sept. 27, and Sunday, Nov. 8, at Artis-Naples. The concerts inaugurate the orchestras first performance series at the arts center. Tickets are $15 at artisnaples.org. All proceeds will help fund the trip, which is estimated to cost $95,000 including travel and lodging in New York City for three nights. Because the opportunity has educational value for students and enables the university to showcase its finest on a national scale, the FGCU Foundation has earmarked funds for this unbudgeted expense. The foundation seeks community support to raise an additional $60,000 and has launched a crowdfunding website at nxtapp.cause.it/fgcu, where gifts can be made. Contributions also can be mailed to: FGCU Foundation, 10501 FGCU Blvd., Fort Myers, FL 33965. For more information about contributing, call 590-1067. The FGCU Wind Orchestra is composed of the universitys finest wind and percussion instrumentalists, who are selected by audition. They will perform on Friday, Nov. 27, in the Isaac Stern Auditorium/Ronald O. Perelman Stage as part of Carnegie Halls Debut Series. The Manhattan Chorale & Chamber Orchestra, which will share the program, invited FGCU after hearing the orchestras first commercially released CD, Introductions, and a recorded performance from the 2015 Florida Music Educators Association Conference. Apparently, these created a buzz within the profession, says conductor Rod Chesnutt, Ph.D., head of instrumental studies at FGCU. We were competing with ensembles from around the country for this coveted spot. The concert marks the first time an FGCU musical ensemble will perform at Carnegie Hall and follows other recent achievements that reflect the growth and success of the Bower School of Music & the Arts as well as the breadth and depth of its programs. Priscila Navarro, an international prize-winning pianist who graduated in 2015, played a solo recital at Carnegie Hall in March 2013. The FGCU Chamber Singers were invited to perform at the Florida Music Educators Association Conference and had a European tour in 2014. The Bower School of Music & the Arts was established in 2006, nine years after the university opened its doors.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Digging for the roots of infidelity When we date in our 30s, the subject of exes always comes up. Somewhere between What do you do? and Do you want to have children? Ill ask the man across from me at dinner, So, what happened with your last relationship? Im always surprised by how many of these men give the same answer: She was cheating on me. They say this with a sorrowful expression, and Ill feel a thread of compassion run through me. How could anyone cheat on this adorable man? Over drinks with my girlfriends recently, I told them about the men whove told me their last relationships ended because their partner was having an affair. One of my particularly wise female friends asked me, Do these guys tell you what their role was in how things ended? Their role? I said. But the women cheated on them. My friend gave me her most sage stare. Both people play a part. The next time I had dinner with one of these men, I worked up the nerve to ask him: So, what role did you play in how your last relationship ended? He shrugged. I dont know. Did your ex talk about any problems? I wanted to know. He thought for a moment. She said I never listened. I took a sip of wine and nodded thoughtfully, considering the wisdom of my friend. Esther Perel, the Belgian psychotherapist who specializes in relationships, talks about this topic in a phenomenal TED talk called Why Happy Couples Cheat. Affairs are an act of betrayal, she says, and they are also an expression of longing and loss. It is an oversimplification, she claims, to think that if were getting everything we need at home, we wont go looking elsewhere. At the heart of an affair is a wish to recapture lost parts of ourselves. Ms. Perel is brilliant, and I agree with what she says about the deeper motivations behind infidelity. Still, I would argue that it really is true for women, at least that if we got what we needed at home, we would be less inclined to search elsewhere. When my male friends complain to me about their wives and girlfriends, their No. 1 annoyance is that the women talk too much. Im tired of hearing her, they tell me. But women need to talk. We need to sort through the tumult in our head in order to be our most vibrant selves. When our partner lets us know hes not interested in hearing it, we begin to seek other outlets friends, co-workers, neighbors. And because verbal sharing, for women, creates intimacy, it should come as no surprise that these conversational exchanges can lead to something more. When a woman feels heard at home or elsewhere shes ready to engage in other intimate activities. Im not condoning cheating. Even I wouldnt go that far. But I see how it can happen. I agree with Ms. Perel, but I also agree with my friend. Both partners play a role in the lead-up to an affair, and its never as simple as the men in my life would have me believe. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 ing and directing Second Chances: The Thrift Shop Musical. At 78, hes bright and sharp and thin as smoke.The show, which runs through Nov. 7, follows a year in the life of the fictional Palm Coast Community Church Thrift Shop and the characters who cross paths there. It was inspired by the thrift store at Iona Hope Episcopal Church in South Fort Myers, which Mr. Prather helped open in 2004. Since then the idea for his play has been marinating. The cast includes 10 actors. Six play main parts. The other four handle more than two dozen roles, playing multiple characters who appear at the shop and take their place in dramas big and small, poignant and hilarious. The music, including at least seven original numbers, was written and arranged by two actors who also star in the show, Megan Orlowski and Christopher Russell. Both 30, they are married in real life. Their songs include influences from rock and roll, soul and other styles. The music will include an eclectic mix of originals, parodied songs, and traditional songs we all know and l ove, Ms. Orlowski said. She wrote the words for original songs and he came up with the melody. For instance, they wrote a song for her character, the wife of a troubled Iraq War veteran who has moved to Southwest Florida for a fresh start. Its not going well, Mr. Russell said. And her song comes at the peak of that conflict. It all came together quickly. Mr. Prather, who wrote a 54-page script starting in February, worked with them to incorporate the music in the right places over four seasons. The action opens in the late summer and early fall just before the snowbirds arrive. Christmas numbers include O Holy Night and Silent Night. At Halloween the shop workers dress as the Village People for a spoof on YMCA. It concludes after Easter: a new beginning, as the title suggests. All of these characters as well as the things that are in a thrift shop need a second chance, right? Mr. Prather said. Everybody needs a second chance. Growing up on a cattle ranch outside Grand Junction, Colo., he was at least a decade younger than his three siblings; and unlike the rest of his immediate family, was interested in movies and theater instead of ranching. When his dad attended annual business meetings in Denver, Mr. Prather went along, reveling in the opportunity to see movies such as House of Wax (1953) in 3-D. He left the ranch to board in the nearby town of Rifle and attend high school, where he could be involved in theatre. He has been running shows since the late 1950s, when he was in the Army. He and his wife Deborah have run theaters and produced shows as long as theyve been married, 50 years in December, starting in Penn sylv ania. They handed the daily operations of Prather Entertainment Groups dinner theatres, including The Dutch Apple in Lancaster and The Broadway Palm in Fort Myers, over to their son Will Prather in 1999. Classic, full-scale musicals and dinner romance, nostalgia, carved roasted pork loin has been their bread and butter over the years. Second Chances is an artistic departure from the norm and ultimately, Mr. Prather said, a collaboration between himself and the actors involved. Everything about (Second Chances) has his hands on it, said Will about his dad. And that is one of the most admirable things I will always have about my dad is his passion for the theater and his willingness to do whatever it takes to make something happen. At 78, hes as driven as someone who is 28, 38, 48, whatever. That man has a passion and commitment to theater like Ive never seen. I admire that and it makes me want to work harder, to be honest. And thats a special thing to have in a dad. CHANCESFrom page 1FW: What was the process for writing Second Chances? I realized there are two stories there. The stories of the volunteers, who are really a community. And then nothing can quite equal the shoppers that come in and the questions they ask and the things that they do or want to buy, so I thought this sounds like a play. And I thought of Cheers, the Cheers bar where everybody knows everybody My wife Deborah, weve been married 50 years come December, and shes kind of a collaborator. In all truthfulness I wrote the first 15 or 20 pages and showed it to her and it was like the birth of a baby kind of thing. And she laughed several times and she said, well, this is good, Tom. Go ahead and finish writing it. FW: What was the process of actually writing this script? Did you sit down every day at a certain time? It was really important to know the characters. And then if you want to write a play you sit down and know your characters and then take a legal pad Im old fashioned. I write on a legal pad with a pencil so I can scratch out and then if you know your characters they come out of your head and you dont do anything you just follow your pencil along. That may seem arrogant or something but it really is how the play evolved. And the other thing, knowing who the performers were, I had seen them do other roles and I knew how their rhythms were and so it worked really well. FW: You are directing it as well, is that right? Yes, and Ive designed the set. It used to be I directed and designed all the sets. Now we have a team that does that but in the olden days it was just kind of my wife and I. It was a ma and pa business; our sons were little. FW: Is this the first time youve written a play? No I got a C in playwriting in college. (The play) wasnt very good, course I wrote it the weekend before it was due to be turned it. In 1999, I wrote a play called Christmas through the Century and it was really based upon my wifes mother because she was born in 1904. So I took each decade in the 1900s and there was a scene in each. It was received controversially. It got some bad reviews. And it got people who thought it was really good But it entertained people. Thats what this is about. FW: What are your plans for Second Chances after the premier? We would tour it on the east coast of Florida if theres any legs. And then also since I do have some contact with our theatre that we own in Penn sylv ania it would probably go up there. FW: How did you get started in theater? My junior year I was 16 and we were doing a high school play (in Rifle, Colo.). All they did was one play a year. It was always the junior play. And we needed the furniture so I went to my mothers house and took all of her living room furniture out and used that. FW: Mr. Prather studied theater at now San Jose State University in California. In the late 1950s after graduation he served in the U.S. Army in radio newswriting, which included spending eight weeks in New York City training before being stationed in Korea where he was a morning radio announcer. When I got there there was a service club and it had a stage. I said, why dont we do a play? We had a whole group of actors, other G.I.s came and we did four plays there during that course of my duty. Then it came time for us all to leave. (D)ue to that work Id done there I got transferred to Japan headquarters. And I was the community theater director at the headquarters of a military base in Japan. FW: What show inspired you most up to that point? Rashomon. Thats that (1951) Japanese movie. I happened to be fortunate enough to see that on Broadway and when I was there in the Army as a matter of fact. And Rashomon is (about) four people and they each tell their own stories. As a matter of fact, when I finished the Army and went to New York and left New York and went to Harrisburg (Pennsylv ania) where I met my wife, we opened a small regional theatre in Harrisburg in 1964 and one of the plays we did there was Rashomon. FW: Aside from this play are you involved with the theaters now? I have no involvement day to day. I may come into this dinner theater and enjoy seeing the show and if I find the beef is tough Ill tell somebody about it. But how many times do you see me involved? Im not really involved. Debbie and I and Will are the final decider on the shows. We sign off on them. But other than that the team picks the plays. The audience really picks the plays with show polls. FW: How do you deal with bad reviews? Do you read it and is it upsetting or do you totally just blow it off? We just got one on Tony (a character in West Side Story at The Dutch Apple), his costume. The critic there said his clothes were too nice to be the leader of a gang. But Tony left the gang, if you know the story. He doesnt do that anymore. And how do I deal with it? I usually think weve failed, somehow we didnt do what the critic expected. Sometimes I just think the critic was in a bad mood and just didnt like it, too. FW: How have you been able to survive and keep the business going for so long? (The Broadway Palm is starting its 23rd season and The Dutch Apple its 30th season). We cater to our customers. Staff here at this theater all have an input about the show selection. And its a family business, and weve kept the price low. We have an enormous subscription base here in Fort Myers and theyre very loyal and dedicated. (The Broadway Palm) is coming off its best year it ever had.

Pineapple Press. 392 pages. Hardcover, $26.95. One of the great feelings that come over me when I settle into a new Honor Series novel by Robert Macomber is the sense that Im in such capable and caring hands. Its like having an insurance policy against disappointments. And there are none in the 12th installment of this unique and durable series. The action is set in December 1892. Commander Peter Wake, after 29 years in the navy that includes 10 years in the Office of Naval Intelligence with assignments worldwide, is finally in charge of his own ship Bennington, a new cruiser of the latest design. As one might expect, the commander is regularly in the company of his careerlong aide, Boatswain Sean Rork, an estimable ruffian from Ireland. Theirs is a very special relationship, a deep friendship that goes far beyond the conventions of officer and subordinate. If this new post sounds like settling down, it isnt quite that. However, there is a romance brewing. If it develops as both parties hope, Wake could once again be a married man. The quick-start relationship with a beautiful Spanish woman of breeding and intelligence is a major attraction for the readers and for Wake, especially since she takes a liberal stance toward Cubas future that allies her with her admirer. Finding the time to spend with her is as great a problem as meeting the challenges of his duties. The action moves between Key West and Tampa, with interludes along the Caribbean coast of Mexico, in Jamaica and in part through flashbacks that sketch his first encounter with Maria Ana Maura y Abad in Washington, D.C. The main action is generated by a scheme to distract and mislead the commander. Fooled by clues that have been planted to mislead him, Wake convinces his superior, Admiral Walker, to send him to and beyond Cozumel to thwart an attempt by someone aboard the German Gneisenau to assassinate a Mayan rebel. The Germans, wishing to establish a naval station to protect their Mexican and other interests, cant risk a government overthrow or instability. It turns out that Wake had succumbed to manipulated evidence designed to keep him occupied while an assassin was sent to Tampa (actually Ybor City) to do away with Wakes good friend, the famed author and Cuban patriot Jos Mart. Wakes old enemies from previous adventures, Germany and Spain, are working against him. The conflicts are both national and personal. Now the race is to beat the assassin to Jos Marts hiding place; or, just in case they cant, to get a message to the hero warning him of the plot. While plenty of interest is generated by this plot line, just as much is attributable to Mr. Macombers meticulous descriptions of matters technical and nautical. The boilers of Wakes ship have been used to exhaustion without being given proper maintenance, and yet there never seems time to take the ship out of operation for this task. The constant reports about that potential calamity, along with the adjustments of speed and other manipulations to lessen the risks, create great suspense and authenticity. The echoing commands on board Bennington and the actions that ensue from them provide vivid insights into the operation of such a ship and Wakes complex responsibilities. Readers get a good feeling for living aboard such a vessel and visiting the ports as they were during the Gilded Age. Then there are the well-managed subplots. One of these has to do with the ongoing familial battle between Wake and his headstrong daughter Useppa, this time concerning the man she wishes to marry. Another concerns Wakes second in command, a haughty and jealous character of high social standing who is out to undermine Wake. This is not the first time Mr. Macomber has sprung his fiction from actual historical events, and I hope it is not the last. His books engage us in the concentric circles of local, regional and international concerns and how they are interrelated. Wakes career often bring him into contact with governmental leaders, this time President Grover Cleveland. Such brief cameos, including the meeting with Mart, are delightful. Once again, Mr. Macomber has composed a living, breathing and authoritative maritime story of later 19th century America and its place in a troubled world. Reader, you are in good hands with this writer. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. o d i i h a philJASONpkjason@comcast.net MACOMBER

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 12th Ave. S. at the City Dock 239-263-9940 NaplesWaterfrontDining.com The stars are bright and the temperaturE is just right for dining on the water at The Dock ARTS COMMENTARY John Cleese on creativityCreativity is an essential skill in life and business, yet its not taught in our schools or always valued at work, bemoans Monty Python co-founder John Cleese, who appears at various Florida venues in October with fellow Python Eric Idle (see story on page A1). After his television and movie career as part of the Monty Python comedic troupe, Mr. Cleese developed an interest in creativity and has lectured on the subject around the world. (In fact, one lecture, found on YouTube, has what appear to be subtitles in Dutch. Because Id recently re-watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which makes use of hilarious pseudo-Swedish subtitles at the beginning, I kept expecting these subtitles to also say something funny. But they were legit, and remained pretty much incomprehensible.) In a recent phone conversation with Mr. Cleese, I asked him about the importance of creativity. Its an extraordinary thing when you realize how mad the world is; people concentrate on one thing and completely ignore something else, he said. Our education system doesnt seem to teach us about creativity. As we grow older, we become less creative, or less receptive to being so. He noted an anecdote in Daniel Pinks book, A Whole New Mind: Why RightBrainers Will Rule the Future, in which Gordon MacKenzie of Hallmark Cards went into a school and talked to students in various grades. When he asked the 6-year-olds, Whos an artist? The hands went up, he says. But when he got to the 9-year-olds, he said, only half raised their hands in response to the same question. And when he asked the 14-year-olds, he said, no one raised a hand. Being creative is seen as being a freak, a curiosity, he said. As education develops, it becomes rarer. He told me nothing about creativity was ever taught to him during his years as a student at Cambridge University. The only remark that was in any way creative was from a professor who said, If youre doing an exam, read all the questions first, then your unconscious will be working on them all the time (while youre answering the first questions.) No one had ever told me that before. In one of his lectures on creativity that I watched on YouTube, Mr. Cleese explained that we function in two modes: open and closed. Creativity is not possible in the closed mode, he said, adding, We too often get stuck in the closed mode. (We have) tunnel vision when we should have the wide view. Certain conditions will make you more likely to be in the open mode, and therefore, more creative, he said. The first is space; you have to create a space for yourself where youll be undisturbed. Another is time; set time apart. Its easier to do trivial things that are urgent than important things that are not urgent, he said. Its easier to start on little things we know we can do than the big things were not so sure about. Another condition for creativity is confidence: the ability to play with a problem without trying to immediately solve it. Too often, well go with the first solution that comes to us. Creative people are able to tolerate the discomfort of uncertainty and ambiguity for longer periods of time. They put in more pondering time, so their solutions are more creative, he said. (Give) your mind as long as possible to come up with something original. Nothing will stop your creativity as much as the fear of making a mistake, he added. True play is experimental: What happens if I do this? What if I do that? This is why companies that operate on fear or are harshly punitive are less creative. Companies that value creativity encourage their people and support them; they allow them to experiment and make mistakes, they welcome a free exchange of ideas. Another important condition for creativity is humor. Humor, Mr. Cleese told his audience, gets us from a closed mode to an open mode faster than anything else. He urged them to find other people to play with. Always make sure your play friends are those you like and trust, who wont squash your ideas. And return the favor, listening to them with an open mind as well. When he talked, I asked Mr. Cleese how people can be creative today, when so many are glued to smartphones all the time. You dont typically see people being meditative on buses or subways anymore, looking out the window and just thinking. Instead, theyre hunched over, staring at a little screen. Its a tragedy; I would put it that strongly, he responded. I think its one of the reasons we have so many problems. People dont sit quietly like they used to on the porch, or go fishing, or play gently for fun. Obsessively checking emails and constantly texting can have a detrimental effect on being creative. Youre subject to interruptions, but you can only relax if youre not under pressure, he said. It could be the pressure of trying to prove how smart you are, or time pressure. Another type of pressure is interruptions: You start thinking about something, and people come in and demand your attention. Thats why an open office is so bad; you dont have the space where you can close the door. Loosen up your assumptions, he advised. When youre playing, nothing is wrong, and even a non-viable idea can be a steppingstone to an idea that works. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOJohn Cleese tours Florida next month with longtime fellow Monty Pythoner Eric Idle.

Consider bringing in an impartial third party to help you both reach a mutually acceptable solution. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) This is a good time to assess your current career situation. Consider whether you have a chance to move up where you are now, or if you should look elsewhere. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) With education being a dominant part of this weeks aspect, one of the things you might want to think about is taking courses to enhance your career opportunities. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might have a problem trying to stay focused on a matter youd rather not deal with. But the sooner you do, the sooner it will be resolved and out of the way. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An unforeseen complication creates a difficult problem. But things get resolved once you use your ability to turn negative situations into positive experiences. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The Pisces penchant for doing the right thing at the right time helps you deal with a particularly troublesome situation. Consider your best option, and act accordingly. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A workplace change doesnt seem to have turned out quite as youd hoped. Never mind: Just treat yourself to a healthy dollop of that Aries self-confidence, and youll soon view things differently. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some of the support you might have hoped for in a difficult situation might not be there. But you have the strength to rely on your own capabilities if you must. Good luck. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A disagreement with a longtime friend can be painful, but it also can be a learning lesson. Insist on a full and complete airing of views. Youll both come away the better for it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A stalled relationship can be restarted with some give and take on both sides. And while it could take more time than you expect, dont rush it. Be patient, and let it happen naturally. LEO (July 23 to August 22) An opportunity to move a long-stalled project from concept to construction might be opening up for the Big Cat. Meanwhile, be prepared to spend more time dealing with family matters. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Use your Virgo organizational skills to line up support to help you deal with a sticky workplace problem. A personal matter also might be helped with friendly intervention. BORN THIS WEEK: Although you might sometimes seem rigid in your views, your love of justice makes you a trusted friend everyone can rely on. PUZZLES

CONTRACT BRIDGEYou can afford itBY STEVE BECKERAssume youre in three notrump and West leads the king of clubs. You play your seven on the king, but West, a shrewd cookie whos familiar with this ducking play, shifts to the jack of hearts. Lets say you win the jack with the king, cash the king of spades, lead a diamond to the king and cash the ace of spades, hoping the queen will fall. No such luck. You next play a diamond to your ace and lead a third round of diamonds, hoping the suit is divided 3-3. Apparently, its not your lucky day, because East wins the diamond with the jack as West shows out. East returns a club, and the best you can do at this point is to go down one. You can establish an extra diamond trick, but that will bring you to only eight tricks. Sometime later, it dawns on you that you misplayed the hand. Not only that, but making nine tricks wasnt even difficult. In fact, it was ridiculously simple. All you had to do, after winning the heart at trick two, was lead the king of spades and overtake it with dummys ace. You would then continue spades, forcing out the queen, and thereby assure nine tricks consisting of four spades, two hearts, two diamonds and a club. It might seem at first blush that playing the king and ace of spades on the same trick is a wild extravagance. But its the kind of extravagance you can readily afford, since it is the only way to assure the contract.

Although bloated and flawed in many ways, this sequel to The Maze Runner (2014) is redeemed by bold decisions not ordinarily seen in an adaptation of a YA novel. Rated PG-13.The Visit (Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan) Strange things occur late at night when siblings Becca (Ms. DeJonge) and Tyler (Mr. Oxenbould) visit their grandparents (Ms. Dunagan and Peter McRobbie) in rural Pennsylvania. Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) returns to form with this strong thriller that nicely mixes humor and horror. Rated PG-13. Mistress America (Greta Gerwig, Lola Kirke, Matthew Shear) A lonely, outcast college freshman (Ms. Kirke) gets a jolt from her exuberant and older future sister-in-law (Mr. Gerwig). In a funny and thoughtful way, writer/director Noah Baumbach deftly finds the haughty nothingness of a young generation thats never accomplished anything but is convinced it will conquer the world. Rated R.Best of Enemies 1/2(Gore Vidal, William F. Buckley, Sam Donaldson) In 1968, ABC News hired intellectuals Gore Vidal (a Democrat) and William F. Buckley (a Republican) to debate during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. The results changed TV news punditry forever. Its a wonderfully entertaining documentary about two people who positively loathed one another and the lengths (depths) they went to in order to win. Rated R.We Are Your Friends 1/2(Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski, Wes Bentley) An aspiring DJ (Mr. Efron) falls for his mentors (Mr. Bentley) girlfriend (Ms. Ratajkowski) in this version of the struggling artist fights to make his mark on the world story. If youre young, ambitious and in search of yourself, and/or if enjoy electronic music, give it a shot. If not, pass. You wont miss much. Rated R.American Ultra (Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Connie Britton) A stoner (Mr. Eisenberg) discovers hes a covert CIA operative and defends his girlfriend (Ms. Stewart) from assassins. The premise is clever, but its not funny and is far too violent. Rated R.Straight Outta Compton 1/2(OShea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell) The early days of pioneering rap group N.W.A. are highlighted in this tremendous biopic from director F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job). The music and story are well done, but the real highlight of the film is the performances, particularly Mr. Mitchell as Eazy-E. Rated R. Fantastic Four (Jamie Bell, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan) Young scientists teleport to an alternate dimension, only to return with superpowers. You can see the potential, but poor story structure undoes anything the movie has going for it. Rated PG-13.

LATEST FILMSEverestIs it worth $10? YesAt the cost of thousands of dollars and a few weeks of suffering, for the rest of your life you can say you climbed to the top of Mount Everest. And for as proud as you would be of that accomplishment, youd (probably) be unsatiated by peoples reactions of, Wow! Thats cool! before making it obvious they dont actually think its as cool as you think they should think it is. Regardless, amateur climbers following experienced guides is the basis for Everest, an effective action/ adventure film based on a true story. It takes too long to get going, but when it does, oh, boy. The first 45 minutes of the twohour movie is spent getting to know the climbers. Rob Hall (Jason Clarke) is the experienced guide who values safety first as he should, with his wife Jan (Keira Knightley) pregnant back home in New Zealand. Beck (Josh Brolin), Doug (John Hawkes) and Jon (Michael Kelly) are among the travelers in this May 1996 expedition, while Helen (Emily Watson) and Guy (Sam Worthington) keep an eye on them from afar. The problem is there s clutt er on the mountain, as a number of groups travail the same access points to reach the summit, making the ropes and paths potentially unsafe. Robs group joins with his old friend/nemesis Scott (Jake Gyllenhaal) in the interest of safety in numbers. But as we know, even the best-laid plans can easily go awry. All this exposition is tedious. Yes, we need to get to know the characters so that we care about them later when theyre in peril, but its too much of a good thing. Cutting five to 10 minutes of chitchat in the early part of the film would improve the pacing and make it more engaging overall. Plus, the paying audience is most interested in what happens during the actual climbing of the mountain, so get to it already. Once the climb begins, Everest could have gone off-track in any number of ways, but it doesnt. The climbers here rarely make stupid decisions, but when they do it completely fits their personality, and the decision is usually about doing anything necessary to make it to the top of the mountain. Weve seen enough movies like this to know that logic is often an afterthought; seeing it consistently applied throughout Everest allows the film to feel more realistic. Furthermore, there is no antagonist besides Everest itself. This is a smart decision by director Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband) and screenwriters William Nicholson and Simon Beaufoy. You dont need anyone making things harder than they already are. Instead we get ice, bitter cold and extreme winds, which when combined are more powerful and deadly than the worst villain in any superhero movie. Indeed, its often repeated that the weather can be very different higher on Everest than it is down below, which means even the best window of time to ascend is full of tremendous risk. There comes a point in Everest when you feel like youre right there on the mountain with these brave, foolhardy souls (seeing the film in IMAX 3D is highly recommended). One moment youre happy and proud of them, while the next you fear for their lives. It all sets up an emotional rollercoaster, with stunning visuals and scenes that will leave you breathless in between scenes thatll make you cry. Its really quite something. o w m a p m dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> In reality, Rob Halls wife Jan was the second New Zealand woman to climb Mt.

Sterling silver has been about $21 an ounce, but in mid-2015, it was down to about $14 to $15. Of course, most collectible silver in good condition is worth more than when its melted down, and pieces made by important companies like Tiffany or Georg Jensen will sell for many times the scrap value. But as older collectors downsize and young buyers search for useful furnishings for new homes, some things have gone down in price. Few brides today ask for a silver tea set or even a set of silverware, so those pieces are selling at bargain prices. It is the lucky couple that inherits a sterling water pitcher by Tiffany & Co. Even luckier are those who get Tiffany silver in Art Nouveau patterns. A water pitcher with raised catfish on a hammered background was estimated at $2,500 to $4,500 at a Rago auction in Lambertville, N.J. There were dents, lost patina, a repair and a monogram, all damage that lowers the value. The unusual pitcher, 8 inches high, sold for $18,750 because of the fine workmanship, unique design and fame of the maker. Q: I cant find the value for my antique Conrey & Birely claw foot table. Its a smaller table and has a sticker that reads patented sept 29, 1896, no 568397. A: The Conrey & Birely Table Co. was founded by Jacob A. Conrey and Charles Birely in Shelbyville, Ind., in 1885. The company was also listed in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The patent was granted to Charles Birely for a method of attaching legs to a table or other furniture. The company was reorganized in 1901 and became Conrey-Davis Furniture Co. Your table, made before Catfish with whiskers are swimming around this silver water pitcher made by Tiffany & Co. It sold for $18,750 last year at Rago Arts auction in Lamber.

Q: I have old Popeye and Olive Oyl toys that were given to me when I was about 5 years old, in 1934 or 5. I have no idea who made them. When new, they squeaked when squeezed. But after more than 80 years, the rubber has dried out and the toys are brittle. Plus, Popeyes pipe has broken off and both of Olive Oyls arms and head have broken off, but have been saved. They could be glued back on, but I dont want to touch them until I find out more about what should be done. Each figurine is about 8 inches tall and 6 inches wide. I am wondering if they have any value today, or if theyre just not worth saving. A: Your rubber Popeye figures were products sold by N. Shure and Co., a wholesaler and importer of toys and novelty items that operated in Chicago from 1888 until 1967. The company claimed to be the Worlds Largest Novelty House, and sold popular items such as china tea sets, magic sets, Lincoln Logs, metal clamp-on roller skates, plush toys and toys related to Shirley Temple, Flash Gordon, Dick Tracy, the Dionne Quintuplets, Popeye and many other others. Rubber toys deteriorate. Your figures are from 1935 and cant be fixed, so you should just throw them away. Theyre not rare, and are not worth much in good condition. Q: My stoneware jug is 113/8 inches tall. It was my mother-in-laws. The jug is printed with blue letters, Globe Liquor Co., 148 & 152 Main St., Buffalo, N.Y. Can you tell me about it? A: Your jug doesnt have a makers mark, but a wine and liquor wholesaler operated in Buffalo, N.Y., at that address from the 1880s until about 1901. Saltglazed stoneware pottery from Europe was used in America from its earliest days. By the 18th century, it was being made in America by hundreds of small local potters. Early decorations were incised and later designs were painted free hand, usually in cobalt-blue glaze. By 1860, designs were more elaborate and had stylized flowers, leaves, birds and other pictures. Names often were printed or stamped on the jugs. Stoneware crocks held butter, sugar, spices, flour, coffee, tea, honey, molasses, pickles, cheese, smoked fish, meats and cheese. Stoneware jugs and bottles held vinegar and beer and kept water cool and drinkable. Dont forget whiskey, thats probably what was in your jug. Stoneware was out of favor by about 1910, after the inventions of canning in glass jars and refrigeration. Now collectors consider salt-glazed stoneware folk art. Prices are determined by rarity, unusual decoration or known maker. Your jug is worth about $80 to $100. Tip: Never steam-clean an old Oriental rug. It will remove the natural lanolin in the wool. Wash the rug with mild soap and water. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Thirteen thousand stale cups of convenience store coffee, the first several thousand black with the strength of youth, sl owly fa ding into the milky murk of middle age. Days all begun the same way out of habit and comfort. Hands hardened and etched with decades of doing, now unsure, grasping at a future defined by not doing. Harold Rebus sat at the precipice of retirement, staring into yet another cup of milky memories. As he stirred, something inside him also stirred. Can I getcha anything else, honey? the already weary waitress asked and then walked away at the familiar genial gesture for Check, please. Harold trailed one finger along the rim of his cup, unconsciously picking at gum underneath the table with his other hand. He had spent nearly every day of those 37 years with at least a small level of uncertainty. His days as an animal control officer in the sweltering sauna known as Orange County, Fla., had each brought with them a new adventure. Some days found him responding to calls concerning various animal issues, from bites to cases of possible abuse. Other days left him patrolling dusty county roads to locate and pick up stray or injured animals. But these were uncertainties Harold could anticipate. He knew the challenges. The adverse weather and extreme climate. The on-call nature of the job. The sometimes venomous animals and clientele. These were all nemeses he had faced before. Retirement was a different beast altogether. It wasnt just the unknown; it was the prospect of redefining self after so many years of establishing an identity. What that identity was exactly, depended upon who you asked. Harold found himself woken from his reverie to the jingle-jangle of the front door. Up until this point, he had been sitting alone in the unfamiliar caf, a deliberate diversion from his usual routine of a gas station rendezvous. Today was, after all, his last day. At some point he had to face reality, embrace the change. Budget cuts were forcing him into an early retirement. Although, if someone were to ask his ex-wife, Joanne, it was at least a decade too late. Shed tired years before of what she had considered a career choice too riddled with perilous pursuits of boyish adventure. Harold took a much more pragmatic stance. Animals and humans had to coexist. It was his job to make sure that happened in a mutually beneficial way. Sure, there were times in his youth when his fervor was fueled by the danger involved, but truthfully, it was that same ardor that first attracted Joanne to him. He stood, slowly stretching the kinks and then thumbed through his wallet for a $5 bill. Dropped it on the table and walked out into the waiting, and somehow auspicious brightness of early morning. Mornin, Harry. His hip squelched on. We got a large gator off County Road 15, a little too close for comfort for a local goat farmer. Shes hissin up a storm. Need a relocate. Which was

The radio fuzzed off. Harold rubbed his hands together and blew into them, a ritual borne over years of using these same hands to lift, pull, carry, and at times, caress animals caught in the throes accompanied by unchartered territory. It seemed only fitting that he breathe life into those same hands that would return life as they knew it to these animals. Roger that. Im on my way. Harold radioed back. He knew the route well. County Road 15 ran north and south through Orange and Osceola counties and was also known as Narcoossee Road. A few more directions squawked over the airwaves and he reached and pulled himself up into the cab of his half-ton Chevy Silverado, clicked his seatbelt into place, and hit the preset for his favorite station, the aptly-named Gator Country. His mind was somehow simultaneously filled and empty as he drove through the unknowns of Central Florida. That would soon change. Upon arrival on the scene, his mind suddenly became exceedingly more aware and focused on the task at hand. He could see the prehistoric beast straddling the edge of the gravel, and the equally aged-looking (and somehow contrarily nearly toothless) woman, wildly waving her arms and hollering in nondescript phrases. Harold took a deep breath, exhaled into his hands, and hopped out of the cab. The woman was a sight to behold. Overalls on top of an ill-fitting crop top. Large rubber galoshes that at one time must have been yellow. A sun hat that couldnt hide the expression on her face. You the extriminator? She piped. Im here to take care of the problem. Yes, maam. But Im not an exterminator. Im with Animal Control. Im here to relocate the reptile, if possible. Well, you do what you need to do. Aint nothin seemed to move her from her spot, and I aint bout to get too close, she added. She was maybe 6 feet long, but in the eyes of this woman, the gator was a huge obstacle to her livelihood. Harold knew he had to wait until help arrived. Even a gator this size posed a considerable threat, but to be honest, the woman worried him more than the gator. A couple of young bucks were on their way, dispatched shortly after Harold. He knew it wouldnt be long now. About 10 awkward minutes passed, seemingly as slowly as the nearly four decades he had spent in this profession. Finally, a truck pulled up. Two guys hopped out with poles and a bag in hand, tools of the trade. Harold held the tail, while the others jumped on the beasts back, taped her mouth closed and threw a bag over her head. The key to controlling a gator is controlling the head. Gators tend to calm down when they cant see, and contrary to the force with which they can close their mouths, it takes a lot less force to keep their mouth closed. Harold helped load her into his pickup. He insisted he take care of it, and the young guys didnt argue. One fewer thing to worry about. Normally protocol called for most gators 4 feet and under to be rereleased into the wild, and anything larger to be humanely killed. Something inside of Harold couldnt let the latter happen. In that 10 minutes of waiting, Harold had seen something familiar in her eyes. Here she was, in an area foreign to her, her world colliding with his. She didnt want to be here, any more than he wanted to retire. Both were facing so many unknowns. Both were standing at the threshold of something unfamiliar. No, he couldnt let that happen to her. Hed release her into the nearest large body of water, and into the murkiness that made so much sense to her. Maybe he could learn to embrace a little murkiness himself.

ENTIRE BILL CELEBRITY EXTRA Marty McFly gets in the (video) game BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: My husband read that Michael J. Fox is going to play Marty McFly again, but Ive searched all over to verify this and cant find anything. Is it true? Joanne F., via TwitterA: Sort of. Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd have indeed reprised their Back to the Future roles of Marty McFly and Doc Brown, respectively. They exercised their vocal talents for the new videogame LEGO Dimensions, which is based on The LEGO Movie and launched Sept. 27. In fact, a lot of famous folks have lent their voices to the game, most of whom were in the movie. Chris Pratt returns as Emmet, Elizabeth Banks as Wyldstyle, Alison Brie as UniKitty and Charlie Day as Benny, among other actors from the film And as part of the original LEGO Dimensions story, Joel McHale is X-PO, the games robot guide, and Gary Oldman is Lord Vortech, the evil mastermind who seeks to control the LEGO Multiverse. LEGO Dimensions includes many other famous voice actors in addition to those featured in the video. Members of the original cast of Ghostbusters, The Lord of the Rings, The Simpsons and Scooby-Doo also will be reprising their roles for the game.

Q : A while back you wrote that Sharon Stone was going to star in her own TV series, but I havent heard anything about it. Is it still happening? Danny T., via emailA: Oscar-nominee and Golden Globewinner Sharon Stone stars in the new TNT action drama called Agent X, which premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8.

Hidden from public view and even from the president there is a top secret agent (played by Jeff Hephner) who is trained and ready to serve, deployed only at the careful discretion of the vice president (played by Sharon Stone).

CUISINE NEWSBayside celebrates silver anniversary with a month of specials in October BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comBayside Seafood Grill & Bar marks its 25th anniversary in the Village on Venetian Bay in October and will offer a variety of specials to celebrate. Neapolitan restaurateurs Tony Ridgway and Sukie Honeycutt opened the establishment in 1989 after de veloper Scot t Lutg ert approached them to design and operate an anchor restaurant at the shopping center. When we opened Bayside, outdoor seating was practically an afterthought, Ms. Honeycutt recalls. In fact, there were only six tables on the upper deck, as most of our patrons wanted to sit in the air-conditioned dining room because the men wore jackets and the women didnt want to get their hair messed up. Fast forward to 2015 and there are more than 25 tables on the upper deck and most are full all night long with guests in shorts and tennis shoes. Over the past two decades, an outdoor bar and a private dining room have been added. This is a very special time for us, says John Everding, Baysides managing partner since 1996. When I came to work at Bayside, the restaurant enjoyed a steady stream of business from a loyal group of clients, but it wasnt doing enough to adapt and attract a growing demographic of younger diners. When we opened the outdoor bar in 2003, things started to get interesting. With the addition of a bar menu and live entertainment, younger locals and tourists began frequenting the establishment. To celebrate the restaurants anniversary and in a nod to National Seafood Month, Bayside offers diners in the upstairs grill and upper deck areas a specially created seafood dish each week of October for $25. Oct. 1-10 the special is a seafood boil, followed by Caribbean snapper with black beans, chorizo, yucca puree and plantains (Oct. 11-17); pan-seared miso scallops and shrimp over pad thai noodles and bok choy (Oct. 18-24); and seared grouper over cheese and bacon grits, fried green tomatoes and wilted Swiss chard served with spicy remoulade (Oct. 25-31). Silver anniversary special events include: A reception for Neapolitan artist Paul Arsenault, whose work hangs throughout the restaurant, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7. A three-course dinner and comedy show featuring Jimmy Keys on Tuesday, Oct. 20. Check the restaurants website for details.Sign up for Foodie CampThe Naples Originals Foodie Camp debuts Monday, Oct. 14, with a four-day series of 90-minute cooking classes with local chefs in 10 independently owned and operated restaurants.

I usually order something involving beef (Shulas is, after all, a steak house). The hearty Angus Burger under the Knife & Fork Sandwich is my go-to choice, but this time I opted for the Toma to & Fr esh Mozz arella Chop Salad with an extra of grilled salmon. My brief moment of concern that salad might not be enough was for naught, however. Before long, a big white bowl filled with crisp, chilled romaine and baby lettuce, chunks of beefy, flavorful tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella, sprinkled with parmesan and dressed with a balsamic vinaigrette, then topped with a generous slab of perfectly grilled salmon arrived. I dug in and didnt stop until every last leaf of lettuce was gone. I didnt even think about food again until dinnertime. Cindy Pierce email@example.com

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Araya Sushi Asian Grill, 2650 Immokalee Road, Naples; 593-3344 Jon and On Augsondthung, who brought us the wonderful Fuji, have created this second, somewhat more upscale space with Araya. Like Fuji, it offers a wide range of sushi as well as cooked Thai and Japanese dishes. Stop in for the stellar sushi but stay to explore the cooked fare including yakitori, priced by the skewer, and specials like sauted chicken livers with asparagus or mainstays like spicy tuna nachos and carpaccio of hamachi with jalapenos. A tiger roll shrimp tempura with asparagus, avocado, rice, seaweed, sesame seeds, masago, smoked salmon, eel and wakame was huge and wonderful. A nightly special, the mummy roll, contained spicy blue crab in rice paper with mango sauce, tobiko and gold flake. Grilled salmon with baby bok choy and lychee duck curry were as delicious as the sushi. For dessert, try the Tokyo sundae sticky rice, green tea ice cream, red bean paste, lychee and coconut. Beer and wine served.

The crisp tempura-style green beans make a good starter, as does the tuna poke sashimi-style fish that the server tosses at the table with soy sauce, tart yuzu juice, creamy avocado bits, shreds of juicy jumbo lump crab and mango chunks for sweetness. With myriad fish and shellfish entrees, its hard to go wrong. The blackened salmon might not technically be blackened, but it has a mouth-watering crust enhanced with a bourbon and brown sugar glaze. And theres lots of flavor in the crispy-crunchy crab-stuffed grouper with its shattering crust and hidden treasure of lump blue crab within. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2015 Dougs Seafood, 3411 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 992-1902 The closest youre likely to come to a true Maine lobster roll in Southwest Florida is served at Dougs Seafood, a small seafood market and caf founded by a Maine lobstering family. Prepared food includes cold and warm lobster rolls; crab and shrimp rolls; lobster, shrimp or crab wraps; and fish tacos. A steam table holds trays of chowders, bisques and lobster mac n cheese. Order at the counter and they quickly deliver to tables. Sandwiches come on plain white plates with a bag of potato chips and a cup of standard-issue cole slaw. The lobster rolls come in two sizes, both overstuffed with succulent, sweet shellfish without fillers or seasonings. When it comes to other seafood sandwiches, a little more pizzazz might be in order. The shrimp roll, for example, could be improved by a smattering of chopped fresh tarragon or a bit of diced celery; the spartan fish tacos would benefit from shredded lettuce or cabbage, fresh cilantro and a spoonful of salsa. Soft drinks only. Food: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2015 La Bazenne, 474 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 682-8623 Whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner you fancy, La Bazenne is prepared to serve it to you with proper French style and flair. A cozy little spot on Fifth next to Osteria Tulia, its operated by Martine and Bernard Giacometti. His parents have operated the original La Bazenne in France for 40 years. Whether its crepe, salads or burgers early in the day or the more complex and interesting dinner lineup, Chef Andy Hydes fare is tres magnifique. The octopus salad is outstanding (rendered tender via sous vide preparation) and served with broccoli rabe, cherry tomatoes and lemon verbena pesto. A chevre starter with cherry tomatoes, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and mixed greens was also excellent. Entrees of diver scallops with English peas, scallops and pommes fondants were elegant and perfect, as was the crisp lavender duck with Florida orange glaze, kohlrabi and pommes almond. A cheese plate and aphrodisiaque crepe provided a wondrous ending to a flawless meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2014 Pizza Fusion, The Gateway of Naples Shopping Center, 2146 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 262-8111 Pizza Fusions food tastes good, and the burgeoning franchise does good at the same time. This eco-friendly chain offers a menu thats 75 percent organic, with vegan and gluten-free options available and easily identified on the menu. While pizza gets a starring role here, there are other worthy contenders, including the zucchini al forno zucchini stuffed with walnuts, breadcrumbs and bell pepper and salads such as the pear and gorgonzola with a vibrant balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Pizzas come in two sizes, personal and large. We liked the Greek, a mix of kalamata olives, roma tomatoes, organic tomato sauce, feta, parsley, mozzarella and provolone on a crisp multigrain crust. Dont skip dessert: The fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies are divine. Beer and wine served.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINERow sets the hook with New England seafood and comedy combinationIts not as if seafood joints are rare in these parts, even the New England variety, which is what Row by Capt. Brien & Crew is. But a New England seafood restaurant that doubles as a comedy club tends to stand out from the crowd. Nonetheless, it makes some sense when you consider that Brien Spina is behind it. Mr. Spina previously operated both Off the Hook Comedy Club and Capt. Briens Seafood on Marco Island, moving the club to Gulf Coast Town Center for a while before opening Row in June in the Naples Walk space previously occupied by Bond, Latitude, Caf Italia and Encore. Gone is the upscale atmosphere of Latitude and Caf Italia in favor of a more casual nautical ambience that befits both a fish house and the comedy club. The wall between the bar and the dining room is gone (Im not sure if that happened when it was preor post-Bond), creating one large, sprawling space that is still loosely divided between bar and dining room. On the far side of the dining room are a handful of elevated booths, some of which are labeled as VIP seating, presumably because they have a good view of the stage. The rest of the dining room has conventional tables and chairs. Given that my mission is to write about food, we arrived around 6 p.m., two hours prior to the start of the live comedy, and managed to land a booth in the relatively empty dining room where a bounty of servers roamed about. Our youthful server arrived quickly with our drinks: a properly chilled glass of Loveblock sauvignon blanc for my companion and a festive Seaside lemonade (Titos vodka, lemon juice, elderflower liqueur and a spritz of club soda) for me. It didnt take long for our appetizers to arrive either: lobster roll sliders ($16) on a little wooden plank and a captains favorite (denoted by an anchor next to the item), the calamari ($11). Three mini house-made slider buns were well filled with large chunks of lobster meat, crunchy celery and enough mayonnaise to hold things together but not overpower the taste of the shellfish. The calamari description (tossed in extra virgin olive oil, roasted red pepper, onions and banana peppers served traditional upon request) made us think it was sauted, but it arrived fried, just without marinara sauce. That was unfortunate, because the breading was bland with only the banana peppers to flavor the dish. This calamari could have used some sauce. Well before wed finished our appetizers, our entrees arrived. In the spirit of full disclosure I will tell you that a friend stopped by the table to talk, but we continued eating while she was there. Even with her appearance, this shouldnt have happened if the server were watching the table and had the authority to tell the kitchen when to fire the entre. Perhaps he doesnt and the kitchen staff decides this on its own. With one slider and most of the calamari left, we turned our attention to the entrees, which were hot and fresh, as were the Vermont white cheddar tater tots ($8 as an appetizer, $5 as a side dish). The Captains fish and chips ($21), another captains favorite, featured two generous pieces of flaky haddock expertly fried along with hand-cut French fries that were also properly done. It came with little glass tubs of ketchup and tartar sauce. A side of cole slaw was crunchy but lacked seasoning. Another captains favorite, the New England seafood Newberg ($25), contained gulf shrimp, scallops and lump crabmeat in an aromatic sauce served with broccolini. The seafood was tender, tasted fresh and the sherry-laced sauce was a lovely accompaniment. Wed ordered the tater tots thinking the cheese would be infused within the potatoes, but when they arrived, we saw that it was shredded and melted on top. Whats more, they werent crunchy and I noticed after wed left that we were charged the extra $3 for the appetizer portion instead of the price for the side dish. After being assured that all desserts were made on premises, we tried the sugar pie ($6), which had a thick, firm crust and a topping so sweet we abandoned it after a couple of bites each. Our server was pleasant and well intentioned but needed some training on the finer points. He never came back to check on us as we tasted each course, and he didnt ask why wed left almost all of the calamari or the pie. Also, if you come for the comedy show, be prepared to sit with other parties at the same table at least in the booths. This occurred at the booth next to ours where two couples were seated for dinner before the comedy began. We were done and on our way out before the comedian took the stage, but the room was filling up nicely. Clearly, theres a healthy appetite for comedy in Naples. Row by Capt.
