According to Naples architect David Corban, the Walker Guest House on Sanibel Island is probably the biggest little deal out there. Its this perfect little structure. Its architecturally very important, he says.

Second Amendment, United States Constitution, 1791Florida legislators, like those in some other states, are now wrestling with three proposed gun bills that continue to reflect our myopia and confusion about the Second Amendment in the United States. One bill would let anybody with a concealed-carry gun permit pack heat on college campuses (Senate Bill 68). There are more than 120 public and private institutions defined as campuses in Florida. A second would allow the open carrying of firearms for people holding concealed-weapons permits (SB 300). The third would strengthen Floridas stand-your-ground policy allowing people to shoot other people if they feel threatened. Heres how: it would require prosecutors to prove before trial, to a judge, and beyond a reasonable doubt, that a shooter should not get immunity under stand-your-ground rules in court (SB 344). Once again were back to the same old questions: who gets to carry what, and where? And for that matter, whom may we shoot, legally? Unfortunately, the answers are so different from one state to the next that the issue and the restrictions resemble fast carnival rides theyre dizzying and confusing. As the 1980s got underway, 19 states banned concealed weapons of any kind; now, no state bans concealed weapons, but 16 ban them in bars, while 25 now require open-carry permits and five dont require concealed-carry permits and eight allow guns on college campuses. Got all that? In some states, you can carry a gun if youre legally drunk enough to be prohibited from driving. A couple of Arizona reporters who noted all this pointed out that in Nevada, where youll go to jail for driving if your blood-alcohol level is .08 or higher, you can carry a gun with a blood-alcohol level of below .10. In 2011, 70 people died in Nevada in auto-related accidents while 376 died from gunshots. All of this begs the crucial question. In our nation, all men and women are created with equal rights under the law. So why are our many laws regarding guns so absurdly varied? If the Second Amendment allows us to carry guns as American citizens, then all of us who qualify should be able to carry guns anywhere we wish. And we should be able to carry any guns anywhere we wish. Campuses should not be zones of exclusion for people with gun rights; nor should churches or bars or schools. And for that matter, neither should federal buildings or domestic airports and airplanes. If we agree that the law allows us to bear arms, then we should be able to bear arms on every street, in every business, and in all public or private institutions. That should be true from Florida to Alaska and Hawaii. The Second Amendment gives us that right, just as the Fourth Amendment gives us the right not to be searched or seized without probable cause, no matter where we are. But states have been allowed to fiddle and flirt with the Second. That creates a hodgepodge of unequal laws and misunderstood applications that violate the Constitution. Guns are our right for good reason. Its spelled out in 12 words: A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state A well-regulated militia. By universal consensus, this does not mean children. Or convicted criminals. Or people who are judged mentally ill. Or those too old to think straight, see straight or shoot straight. None of them can be well-regulated. But the rest of us can and should be, even though the word regulation is often reviled by political leaders and business owners who dont want anybody well-regulating them because it might cost them votes or money. In effect, the Second Amendment means that we as a nation can elect leaders, who will appoint commanders, who will in turn regulate our militias and that until such a time as militias become necessary, we have the right, those of us willing and able to be well-regulated members of a militia, to keep and bear arms. Could anything be simpler? No, of course not. We all know what this means, from Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, a gun-promoting lobbyist, to Mark Bardin and Nicole Hockley, whose children, Daniel Barden, 7, and Diane Hockley, 6, were shot to death on Dec. 14, 2012, in Newtown, Conn., with 24 other people by somebody who shouldnt have had a gun because he couldnt be wellregulated. Furthermore, it should be obvious to any member in good standing of the species homo sapiens that a well-regulated militia must be a trained militia a militia prepared to defend the security of a free state. Obviously you cant regulate a bunch of untrained bumpkins, not if you want to ensure the security of a free state. Thats why Im dismayed by these silly picking-at-the-edges gun laws and proposed laws. This issue is as fundamentally clear as voting: if you qualify in this case, if you are or have been a trained member of a well-regulated militia you should get to have guns. Once youve served (and I would insist on two years as a minimum) you would need to retrain annually if you intend to have guns. If you choose not to serve in the Army or the Navy or the Air Force or the Coast Guard, or cant, but you still want to carry guns, you should have an option: support services. If you serve in the hospitals or the parks or the schools or the public-good programs the well-regulated logistical support necessary to the security of a free state then keeping and bearing arms (with some basic training) should be your right. Nothing could be simpler. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

It is the land of social democracy and of all good things. It is the answer to any objection that new welfare benefits cant be adopted here: But look how well they work in Sweden. Bernie Sanders reverted to this article of faith when challenged over his socialism at the recent Democratic debate. He invited America to sit at the knee of Scandinavia. I think we should look to countries like Denmark, like Sweden and Norway, he said, and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people. There are a couple of things wrong with the lefts romance with these countries, as Swedish analyst Nima Sanandaji notes in a recent monograph. It doesnt fully appreciate the sources of Nordic success, or how Scandinavia has turned away from the socialism so alluring to its international admirers. The first thing to know is that Scandinavia is inhabited by Scandinavians, a hardworking, responsible people who have had high levels of social trust and cohesion for a very long time. These are splendid qualities. As Mr. Sanandaji points out, Scandinavia already had high life expectancy and other health indicators before it expanded its welfare state, and already had more equal societies. No one remembers, but Scandinavia wasnt always a watchword for social democracy. Indeed, Sweden was such a free-market success story that Republicans should be citing it in their debates. It started as a poor country in the late 19th century, then achieved takeoff under a dynamic capitalist system into the middle of the 20th century. Its boom coincided with the time when its taxes were lower than in the U.S. and the rest of Europe. When Bernie Sanders and his ilk hold up Scandinavia as an exemplar, they are really thinking of a couple of decades beginning in the early 1970s when Sweden and others got their full Sanders on. In Sweden, the effective marginal tax rate topped 100 percent in some circumstances. There is a reason that IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad fled the country in 1973. Sweden instituted a scheme to confiscate corporate profits and hand them over to labor unions. The idea was, in the words of a Swedish economist, to have a market economy without individual capitalists and entrepreneurs. This was about as logical as it sounded and delivered predictable results. The socialist golden years werent so golden for economic performance. Entrepreneurship plummeted. Job creation and wages sputtered. The Scandinavian story the past few decades has been a turn against socialism. Taxes have fallen, and markets have been liberalized. Mr. Kamprad returned to Sweden. If no one will mistake these countries for Texas, they allow enough economic openness to stay vibrant. Scandinavian countries, Mr. Sanandaji writes, compensate for high taxes and labor market rigidities by following liberal policies in other areas, such as business freedom and openness to trade. Denmark, of all places, is ranked 11th on The Heritage Foundations index of economic freedom, right above the United States. Nothing will undermine the lefts faith in the Scandinavian model, but Bernie Sanders could learn a thing or two from the reformers in the countries that he so admires. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Trick or treatIt is a scary season. That would be true even if it were not time for Halloween. The pending 2016 presidential election puts an edge on the optimism of ordinary Americans. It feels as if we are one beat short of taking the nation to a point of no return. The fear and uncertainty resonates broadly about what lies in wait behind the unopened door. Nor does it matter which path you choose to arrive at the doorstep and the source of your surprise. Having watched all the presidential primary debates thus far, the contrast could not be any starker between the partys respective candidates. They might as well be from different planets. The qualifications to perform in one of the worlds toughest jobs shares little in common across party lines, and the same is true of the leadership styles and political themes characterizing each partys candidates. The Democratic Party hopefuls debate national policy issues the Republican Party candidates debate personalities. The Democratic candidates wear their government service as a badge of honor. The Republican candidates equate government experience to the mark of the devil. The top three Republicans leading in the polls have no government experience. The missing ingredient in their resumes accounts for their popularity among conservative voters. To many thoughtful Americans, it does not add up, especially given the trail of bombast the three amigos a brain surgeon, a former CEO and a billionaire real estate broker is leaving behind on their presumed road to the White House. The hard-liners driving the favorability ratings fervently believe the way to fix a broken government is to break it even more. All three of the top Republican candidates are terrifyingly convincing they can do a swell job of that. It is counter-intuitive to believe the less you know about a job the better you can do it, and never in my adult life has anyone ever suggested a total lack of experience is the key qualification that will earn you a coveted job. I feel certain the Wharton School of Business would consider such a supposition heresy in the business world. This twisted logic is a sign the end times are near for any conservative who owns their government experience as an asset and not a flaw. Going this route assumes electing a private sector outsider as commander in chief is interchangeable with or superior to electing a candidate with chops in democratic governance. The whole point of capitalism is that it isnt a democracy, and to succeed in the business world, you dont operate like one. Capitalism is antithetical to democratic governance. Capitalisms ideal universe is a free market unconstrained by constitutional checks and balances and void of accountability to anyone for anything that gets between the system and opportunities to make a buck. Left to its own unfettered devices, capitalism is a competitive, winners-take-all, Darwinian world and the mega corporate wealth it creates insulates private enterprise from the consequence of misdeeds perpetuated in defiance of the public interest. The hedge fund managers who engineered the global economic collapse would not fill a single jail cell. They brought suffering to millions of American families who are still in recovery, while they live again in triumph on Wall Street. Nonetheless, Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina have fashioned themselves as private sector vestal virgins, Washington outsiders uniquely qualified to take the government establishment down. The popularity of their conservative competitors suffers because they supposedly surrendered their chastity to be Washington insiders. Unable to escape the far rights insinuation of slutty behavior, the accused distance themselves from the object of their disdain, as Apostle Peter did from Jesus three times before the sun comes and the cock crows and they arent done yet. Denying the legitimacy of government is an article of faith among conservatives running for office, but it is a terrible reason to give them their wish. They must surely take their oath of office with their fingers crossed behind their backs, having no intention whatsoever to fulfill their duties and responsibilities as public servants, much less be willing to compromise. For example, Floridas Sen. Marco Rubio has the worst voting record in the U.S. Senate. When asked about why so dilatory in his duties, he explains that being a U.S. Senator means more than voting. The way I understand what he means is that we pay him for a job he does not do; he safely ignores a constituency about which he does not care; he exploits shamelessly, and for his own purposes, a historic institution he disrespects. Moreover, the only reason he deigns to serve in the U.S. Senate is so he can pick up a paycheck on his way to the White House. No wonder Donald Trump wants to fire him. So should we all. But we will not improve our national governments performance by electing more of the same. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

PROFILES IN PARADISELibertarian leader left Republican Party for what he believes is rightJared Grifoni is a practicing attorney and corporate counsel for Gulf Coast Donuts (Dunkin Donuts). He also hosts Resistance Radio Saturday mornings on WGUF 98.9FM and chairs the Libertarian Party of Collier County. He and I want the same social and political outc omes preservation of individual liberty and freedom, limited government and free markets but weve chosen different paths. Im working for reform within and election of the right candidates in the Republican Party, while Jared has left the Republican Party to become a leader in the Libertarian Party. He has chaired the Libertarian Party of Collier County for the past four years and was the at-large director to the Libertarian Party of Florida for two years. I like being able to try and find common ground with the left and right so we can work together on issues of common concern throughout our community that impact our individual rights, he says. Jared and his two younger sisters were raised in Massachusetts. He made a permanent move to Marco Island in 2007 after frequent family visits to Florida since 1986. His favorite classes in school were history (American, world, ancient, etc.), so much so that at one point during high school he considered becoming a history teacher and getting a masters degree and even a doctorate. He also enjoyed political science and philosophy classes. He ended up earning a bachelors degree (double major in political science and philosophy) from Merrimack College and graduating from Suffolk University Law School. Even in early childhood, Jared enjoyed political discussion. If youve ever sat around a massive dinner table with a family of Italians on holidays, you know it will get loud and will end up on politics, he says. I would almost always sit at the table and listen to the adults go back and forth. I found it more interesting than playing with my siblings or cousins. As he got older, he would participate in the discussion, often taking contrarian positions even positions with which he completely disagreed for the sake of good debate. Put yourself in the uncomfortable position of articulating something you despise for the sole purpose of getting inside the oppositions head and finding the weak spots. Its a tactic I still utilize today, and it helped tremendously in law school, he allows. Registering Republican when he turned 18, he voted for the GOP his whole life until he became apathetic. I didnt want to defend the Iraq War, the PATRIOT Act and our overspending just because it was a Republican leading the effort, he says. It wasnt until he heard of Ron Paul in 2007 that being a Republican started to make sense to him again. There was a guy who was against the war, against using government to regulate personal decisions, against big spending and for ALL of the Constitution. I was engaged again. But then he became disillusioned with how the Republican Party treated Mr. Paul. I got sick of the division I saw the problems with our lack of adherence to Constitutional limits and the principles contained within the Declaration of Independence. Then he found the Libertarian Party. This was a party that truly sought a free society based on the principles of limited government, individual rights and economic freedom, he says. I might not agree with your choices, but I believe you have every right to make that choice so long as you accept the responsibility of the consequences of your actions and you dont infringe on the rights of another. In addition to his law practice and his leadership role in the Libertarian Party, Jared loves watching Italian soccer, cooking (mostly Italian), gardening, travel, opera and reggae. He is engaged to be married to Elsa Martinez in February. bobHARDEN firstname.lastname@example.org Something you mom was always right about: Dont judge people before you get to know them.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015 House in New Canaan, Conn. It also received a double-page spread in McCalls magazine. Theres no decoration to it. Everything has a function, everything has a purpose, Mr. Corban says. Thats part of the beauty of it. He remembers seeing the house for the first time when visiting his grandparents at Fort Myers Beach during spring break. They went to the beach on Sanibel. I was maybe no more than 8 years old, he recalls. I remember that that building was different than anything else. I like to tell people that building is the reason I wanted to be an architect. It put that thing in my mind, I noticed there was something different about it. Growing up in the South, everythings got a sloped roof, a porch and the chimney like every childs cartoon view of what a house is. But this was completely different.To infinity and beyondJust 24-by-24-feet square, the Walker Guest House consists of 8-foot-high panes of glass and screens covered by lightweight wooden panels. By using a system of counterweights, ropes and pulleys, the panels can be raised outward to let in the sun. When theyre up, the structure is like an open pavilion; when lowered, it feels like a cozy cottage or cave. You want the daylight in, but you want the direct sun out, says local architect Joyce Owens. When you raise the panels, you maximize the area that gets ventilated and you maximize the daylight. But that big (panel) creates a fantastic sunshade. Its ideal. By opening the panels, you become part of the environment, whether its through the glass (window) or the screen. All of a sudden, your indoor space just expands to forever. Its better than camping; youre not stuck with nylon walls. Theres nothing that distinguishes inside and out, it all blurs together. While some have said that opening the panels doubles the space of the structure, Ms. Owens disagrees. It more than doubles the space when you open the panels, she says, because its infinity (it goes on for as far as you can see).Spider or cannonballThough less than 600 square feet, the home feels airy and spacious. Its architect, Paul Rudolph, once described the building by saying, It crouches like a spider in the sand, referring to its skeletal structure, with slim poles that jut out from the roof, like a spiders legs. Others, including Mr. Corban, have called it the Cannonball House, referring to the 77-pound, bright red counterweights that hang outside. When he began studying architecture, Mr. Corban discovered the house that so impressed him in childhood was designed by a world-renowned architect. He studied Mr. Rudolph, who was part of the Sarasota School of Architecture, in college. I always tell my interns and people who have never been there, You have to go see it, he says. It has survived more than 60 years, and is basically built out of plywood and 2-by-4s. Ive sketched it and photographed it. You aspire to do something that will last that long and hold up to history that well. The house, however, is a private home, and still used by the Walker family, who have a main house a little closer to the Gulf of Mexico. It is not open to the public, though Elaine Walker graciously allows architects to visit the home.Celebrating Paul RudolphThe Sarasota Architectural Foundation, an organization dedicated to the preservation and awareness of the Sarasota School of Architecture movement, came up with the idea of building an exact replica of the house. It now stands on the grounds of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota. A grand opening for the replica takes place Friday, Nov. 6, and is free to the public. Faithful inside and out to the way the building looked when first built, it will be on display through October 2016. SAF hopes it will then travel to other venues, such as The National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., and The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis (which was started by the parents of Ms. Walkers late husband, Dr. Walter Walker). (A small exhibition, Paul Rudolph: The Guest Houses, is on view at The Ringling through Dec. 6.) The grand opening of the Walker Guest House replica is in conjunction with the first day of SAFs SarasotaMOD Weekend, a three-day festival celebrating mid-century modern architecture that includes lectures, panels, tours and parties at mid-century modern homes. This years programs and activities highlight Mr. Rudolph as an icon of mid-century modern architecture. In addition to the Walker Guest House replica, the weekend includes tours of Mr. Rudolphs Umbrella House and the newly restored Sarasota High School. Prices and locations for each event vary and can be seen in more detail at www. SarasotaMOD.com. A package deal for all six presentations is $150.Inhabitable artPaul Rudolphs work is really some of the most innovative and really best architecture in Florida. Its great for people to know, says Joe King, project architect for the Walker Guest House replica. The Bradenton-based architect/contractor specializes in historic preservation work. Hes also the co-author, with Christopher Domin, of Paul Rudolph: The Florida Houses. Both Mr. King and Mr. Domin will give a presentation at SarasotaMOD about Mr. Rudolph and the Walker Guest House. Mr. King began learning about Mr. Rudolphs work while an architecture student at Emory University in Atlanta. Mr. Rudolphs chapel at the school was an inspiration to Mr. King when he was thinking of going into architecture. Rudolph was an innovator in designing with space and with light, he says. So not only did he design attractive and unique shapes, but the shapes of his buildings were always for the purpose of creative architectural space, space that people experience that affects them in a positive way. Along those lines, he adds, is Mr. Rudolphs ability to design with light, how the light comes in, how it reflects, how it affects the space that he creates. Mr. Rudolph had both an innate talent and great training and experience, Mr. King says. Much of his early experience was in Sarasota, working with Ralph Twitchell. So he learned about universal principles of architecture, but also ways to adapt those to subtropical environments of the west coast of Florida. The Walker Guest House was one of Mr. Rudolphs first solo commissions. The building, says Ms. Owens, is a great tool for teaching people how to build for the Southwest Florida climate. Were not just looking backward, she says. Were looking back so we can look forward, to how we can build in the future. For example, Mr. Rudolph built the Walker Guest House 18 inches off the ground, which not only protects it from bugs, snakes and flooding but also helps provide circulation, making it energy efficient. All the Mediterranean-styled buildings in Florida are wrong for the environment, Ms. Owens says. Such designs, she explains, are meant for a dry, arid climate, not a wet, humid climate. Mr. King calls Mr. Rudolphs buildings works of art. I think of the Walker Guest House as a great way to learn about what youd call the art of architecture, or the art of building, he says. So often we think of houses in utilitarian ways, as something to keep the rain out.ARTFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe original Walker Guest House on Sanibel was built more than 60 years ago.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015 NEWS A9 DAN SNYDER / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Walker Guest House replica The Walker Guest House is such an abstract form, and the spaces are so unique, that its an opportunity to experience it as art, not just function. You think of art that hangs on a wall in two dimensions, and sculpture as three-dimensional art in which you can walk around and look at and appreciate. Architecture goes to another three-dimensional place: You can live in it and walk around in it and through it. You can even imagine inhabiting the art. The replica gives people visiting the museum an opportunity to think of architecture as something that can have a strong effect on us, like art, he adds. Because it is.Building the replicaMr. King began building the Walker Guest House replica on his 100-acre ranch in Bradenton in April. He worked from the original blueprints, building it under the shelter of a barn-like structure with a roof and no walls, only poles. Its a complicated little building, he says of the guesthouse, although it doesnt look that way. That was our goal that it should look effortless, look fully resolved. In architecture as in most things when its just as it should be, you look at it and think, Gosh, thats easy. But you know, there are so many details to make out. The replica had to be made so it could be taken apart. So, everything is screwed together, and there are very few nails, Mr. King says. He built special pallets for the pieces and parts, so they could be loaded onto a truck and transported. Then we put it back together again at the Ringling, he says. So Ive built it twice now. We had to do some interpretations. We had to figure out how to involve Rudolphs ideas in way that was useful for the project. Another analogy is like cooking from a recipe: You can just follow the directions and do it, or take the time and think about why the ingredients are in the quantities they are, or combined in the way that they are, and why it is like it is. At the time the Walker Guest House was built, in 1952 and the Causeway connecting Sanibel Island to Fort Myers had yet to be constructed, so everything had to be transported on a barge. Mr. Rudolph used plywood and 2-by-4s and 2-by-6s from a lumberyard. He also used material often found on ships: ropes and pulleys for rigging, as well as cleats by the interior base of the windows, to tie the ropes around. The guesthouse, divided into quadrants, also makes the most use of its small space in terms of storage. Its thought that Mr. Rudolphs previous experience in the Navy and supervising shipbuilding at the Brooklyn Navy Yard influenced his internal design and ability to make the best use of space. Replicating the iconic little house was a great experience for me as an architect, and a great, great exercise, Mr. King says. I learned a lot from it. It affected me positively in terms of my own design.Curating the interiorOn a recent Saturday, SAF member and designer Dan Snyder was putting the finishing touches on the inside of the replica, along with SAF chairperson Janet Minker, her husband Elliott Himelfarb, Tom Breit and a few other SAF members. Curious visitors to The Ringling kept trying to walk into the house, and Ms. Minker would gently explain that the home was not yet open to the public. Undeterred, theyd walk around the exterior, peering inside, taking photos. Mr. Snyder, whos curating the replica, got permission to use Ezra Stollers iconic high-resolution photos of the inside and outside of the original Walker Guest House for research. Theyre so sharp you can read the titles of the books on the bookshelf, he says. Mr. Rudolph, he adds, designed the bookshelf. Mr. Snyder purchased Time magazines from 1953 and a collection of Fortune magazines from the same year to accessorize the guesthouse. He also plans to have a copy of the first issue of Playboy from the same year. He used the photographs to determine the color, furnishings, wall hanging and accessories. Furnishing the replica has been a kind of mid-century modern scavenger hunt for Mr. Synder. In an antique shop in Bradenton, for example, he found an identical pole lamp by the same manufacturer, the same year, he says. He found a similar stove in a store in Los Angeles and had it shipped across the country. The 1948 refrigerator he found on eBay was shipped from Connecticut. And he found the cast iron sink with a porcelain top with two drain board in Chicago. A tiny Pyrex coffee pot in mint condition was another eBay find. No detail is too small for Mr. Snyder. For the kitchen, he also tracked down a toaster, a Joy of Cooking cookbook, a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook and a Jell-O cookbook, all from 1953. It has really funky illustrations, he says of the Jell-O book. He plans to stock the kitchen cabinets with some Raymond Lowe-designed Rosenthal china from his personal collection. The china is beautiful white and black, he says. It goes with the color scheme Mr. Rudolph created for the house. You might think of pink and green, and rattan furniture, with maybe prints with palm trees or something funky like swordfish on them, he says about a typical mid-century modern beach house. But the Walker Guest House walls are a charcoal gray, and the floor a light gray. Almost everything is gray, black or white. The exterior is painted a crisp white. The original in Sanibel is now a tan, sand color. And Ms. Walker has added some more color to the interior. She replaced the floor with a lighter color because, as property manager Carla Murray explains, she thought the darker floor showed all the sand that was tracked in. She also replaced the black directors chairs with colorful ones, and put a tropical print on the formerly charcoal-gray daybed. Walking into the replica house is like stepping back into time, but with a few exceptions. What is a small bathroom in the original house is a small elevator lift so the replica is handicapped-accessible. And the bedroom is turned into a small exhibit space, with photographs and blueprints on the wall. Mr. Snyder did place a Paul McCobb desk in the corner of the room, with a 1950 Lettera 22 Olivetti manual typewriter on top. (The typewriter, he notes, has won multiple design awards.) And a nice touch a photograph of Dr. and Mrs. Walker.A career inspirationThe Walker Guest House was the first modern building that Sarasota architect Carl Abbott had ever seen. He was a teenager living in Fort Myers when he went on the mail boat from downtown over to Sanibel. Id never seen anything like it, he says about the guesthouse. It was amazing. At the time, he didnt know he was going to study architecture. Its not the only building, but its certainly one of the buildings that convinced me to go into architecture, he says. He graduated from Fort Myers High School in 1954 and eventually was accepted into the masters program for architecture at Yale University, where Mr. Rudolph not only taught but was chair of the department of architecture. Most other Ivy League schools had 45 to 60 people in their masters class, but Mr. Rudolph wanted very small classes only 15 people and he wanted half the class to be from other countries around the world, Mr. Abbott says. He was very distant as a professor, he adds. He was always about architecture, always talking about architecture, always, always. He was a very intense human being (and) an extremely tough instructor. His whole life was his work, and his students were his children He was a small person, 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7, but he was like a weight, his energy was huge. You got almost vibrations when he walked in. He was extremely focused. He wanted us to become very focused, too, and he pushed for us to all follow our own direction, and not follow him. Mr. Abbott is the youngest and one of the last remaining members of the Sarasota School of Architecture. I could never do what I was doing if he hadnt pushed me so hard to develop my own direction and own thoughts, he says. He opened doors that I didnt think could be opened. Hes thrilled that the SAF has created the Walker Guest House replica. Its quite wonderful, he says, calling it a must-see. I think Rudolph wouldve been delighted to have it done. Its exquisite. Its a wow. Its a wonder to see this little building doing so much. Even though Ive seen (the original) so many times, its wonderful to see it in its crisp form.

Prison debaters are held to the exact same standards as college debate teams, according to the director of Bard Colleges Prison Initiative, which coaches the inmates. Prisoners took the pro side of public schools having the right to turn away students whose parents had entered the U.S. illegally (though team members personally disagreed). The Bard trainers pointed out that the inmates perfected their presentation despite (or perhaps because of) the prison prohibition on Internet access.Compelling explanationsA black alleged gang member, Taurus Brown, 19, under arrest in Clearwater, Fla., in September for having a marijuana cigarette casually tucked behind his ear as he talked politely to a white police officer, tried to flee on foot but was quickly taken down. Asked why he ran, Mr. Brown replied (according to the police report): I dont like white people touching me. White people do weird stuff.Unclear on the concept The Merit Systems Protection Board is (wrote The Washington Post) a personnel court of last resort for federal employees unfairly punished by demotion or firing which is just what employee Timothy Korb needed when his federal agency suspended him in 2013, allegedly for revealing at a staff meeting that the agencys actual case backlog was much worse than it was letting on. Mr. Korbs employer, ironically, is the Merit Systems Protection Board, and in September 2015, an administrative law judge upheld his claim of unfairness. Philosophy professor Anna Stubblefield (Rutgers-Newark University) was convicted of aggravated sexual assault against a severely disabled man she was discovered having sex with on the floor in a locked office, but at trial in September, she testified that the man had consent(ed) and that the two were in love. The victim, 34, has cerebral palsy and other ailments, wears diapers, requires assistance for nearly all activities, is intellectually disabled, and does not speak, except for making noises, according to a brother. Ms. Stubblefield had been working with him on the controversial practice of facilitated communication, in which a facilitator reads a patients mind via subtleties such as eye movement and articulates the words for him. However, a jury failed to appreciate that facilitated consent and quickly convicted her.ShamelessIn rare bipartisan action, the U.S. Senate is preparing a bill to ban taxpayer funds for those military salutes at sporting events. Teams (the legislators believe) already benefit from the fanfriendly staging of heartwarming patriotic displays. (The Pentagon had paid $5.4 million just to the National Football League over the last four years.) An NFL spokesman, finally playing catchup, said in September, (N)o one should be paid to honor our troops.Legislators in action In a recent resolution, Blount County (Tennessee) Commissioner Karen Miller called for her fellow commissioners and state officials all the way up to the governor to prepare for Gods wrath for recent national policies (same-sex marriage, etc.) she disagrees with. Though other states might be in for a smiting, Ms. Millers resolution calls on God to spare Blount County (by the safety of the Passover lamb). In October, the commission tabled the resolution, 10-5, but she promised to reintroduce it. By September, Cindy Gamrat and Todd Courser were finally out of the Michigan Legislature Ms. Gamrat by guard-escorted removal after her formal expulsion and Mr. Courser by pre-emptive resignation following the pairs months-long secret sexual affair and clumsy handling of its revelation. Mr. Coursers original defense strategy was to plant a bogus story of a gay-sex scandal, hoping to discredit as hysteria any news about his actual affair, but when that failed, he issued a 1,900-word plea, liberally quoting the Bible, acknowledging his hypocrisy and hoping for salvation from his colleagues (who failed to come through).The Weirdo-American communityOfficially declaring oneself not subject to the laws of any jurisdiction (i.e., a sovereign) opens a wide range of career choices. The FBI and Las Vegas police say that in Rick Van Thiels case, once his porn industry career ended (because someone stole his video equipment), he decided to go into the medical field, becoming Dr. Rick with expertise performing dozens of abortions, circumcisions and castrations (plus cancer treatments and root canals). Proudly avoiding actual licensing, Mr. Van Thiel promoted alternative remedies, with an office in a Nevada compound of trailers that one hesitant patient described as something out of a horror movie. Mr. Van Thiel, arrested in October, nonetheless staunchly defended his ability (acquired, he said, by watching YouTube medical videos). (Bonus entertainment: In court, he will be acting as his own lawyer.) NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

She offers the following tips: Monitor This is the most important step in preventing an identity theft attack. Free resources such as freeannualcreditreport.com are available. Use credit cards, not debit cards In the event of an attack, credit cards users are more likely to have issues resolved without loss of liquid funds.

Pony. Ever. sizing up the 2016 Ford Shelby GT350/GT350R Mustang The redesigned Ford Mustang made our Guys Choice list earlier this summer because this American icon was re-engineered to offer more widespread appeal than a Hershey bar. But what if this was just the base for a more exotic dessert? Ford gave us a taste of the upcoming 2016 Shelby GT350 and GT350R at Sebring International Raceway. The base Mustangs independent rear suspension already made it far more advanced than any specialty pony car before it, and the Shelby version produces 21 percent more power than any other car currently in the lineup. So testing it on an internationally renowned racetrack that just also happens to be in our south Florida backyard seems like the right place to get our first sample. The GT350 applies the usual tricks to show the world it is a more serious performance machine larger fenders, lower bodywork, rear spoilers, etc. But theres also something extra. Theres an aggressive aura that subconsciously draws attention to the red calipers on the massive Brembo brakes or the carbon fiber wheels on the competitionfocused GT350R version (a first ever for a production car). Or maybe the impression comes from the sound this coupe makes. The 5.2-liter V8 motors exhaust note is not like any of the other Shelbys before it. It is more rhythmic than a brutish and booming muscle car. The hum is nearly European. This is surprising considering its V8 is related to the 5.0-liter found in the current Mustang GT. However, it has been thoroughly upgraded with a flat plane crankshaft and a host of other performance goodies to make 526 hp. It is a naturally aspirated engine, so it also has over 1,000 more rpm worth of playtime over the old GT500. What does all that technical jargon mean in the real world? In a nutshell, power and torque are on tap at all times. Our GT350R test car had the versatility to run hard without ever leaving third gear for the entire road course. The Track Package (optional on the GT350, standard on the GT350R) utilizes magnetic ride control that instantly adjusts the suspension to all conditions. On some of Sebrings infamous rough corners, older Mustangs would hop and could even lose a little traction. This coupe rolls with the punches so well in that the tires feel melted to the track. This kind of adaptability allows amateurs to focus on identifying the apex of every corner, and trackday pros have the confidence to run harder and faster than ever before. There have been many specialty products from Ford and Shelby that have been described as, a great accomplishment for a Mustang. The GT350 and GT350R dont need a qualifier. Theyre just great. Even with the improvements, technology does not overload this car. Ford resisted the urge to have a paddle shift transmission, and the Tremec six-speed is the only gearbox offered. Rowing the gears is just more fun, and it is a clear signal that the GT350 is more about keeping smiles on owners faces than shaving an extra tenth of a second off arbitrary lap times. That is the right niche for this car. These are not pure track machines, but rather premium daily drivers that can be the new champion of the weekend warrior. Individual consumers will need to pay attention to Fords packaging maze to get the car they want for both the street and the track. The GT350 starts around $49,000, but the vital Track Package adds $6,500. The more hardcore R version starts at $63,500 and includes the Track Package. But this one is also on a severe diet that will leave you paying $3K just to get the touchscreen radio, rearview camera, and (Florida crucial) air conditioning added back into the car. Checking every option box creates a GT350R that retails around $68,000. But collectors are already swarming for the limited run of this future classic, so be prepared for at least a 10 percent dealer markup on any car. Paying over sticker price never seems fair, but this is quicker than any specialty Camaro and easily out maneuvers the Dodges Challenger SRT Hellcat. The Shelby GT350/GT350R Mustang is a Godiva treat found in a Whitman's box. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

HEALTHY LIVINGStudy of mice gives insight into ADHD, autism and more NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHIn a study of mice, scientists discovered that a brain region called the thalamus might be critical for filtering out distractions. Published in Nature and partially funded by the National Institutes of Health, the study paves the way to understanding how defects in the thalamus might underlie symptoms seen in patients with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and schizophrenia. We are constantly bombarded by information from our surroundings, says James Gnadt, Ph.D., program director at the NIHs National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. This study shows how the circuits of the brain might decide which sensations to pay attention to. Thirty years ago, Dr. Francis Crick proposed that the thalamus shines a light on regions of the cortex, which readies them for the task at hand, leaving the rest of the brains circuits to idle in darkness. We typically use a very small percentage of incoming sensory stimuli to guide our behavior, but in many neurological disorders the brain is overloaded, the studys senior author, Michael Halassa, M.D., Ph.D., says. It gets a lot of sensory input that is not well-controlled because this filtering function might be broken, the assistant professor at New York Universitys Langone Medical Center adds. Neuroscientists have long believed that an area at the very front of the brain called the prefrontal cortex (PFC) selects what information to focus on, but how this happens remains unknown. One common theory is that neurons in the PFC do this by sending signals to cells in the sensory cortices on the outer part of the brain. However, Dr. Halassas team discovered that PFC neurons might instead tune the sensitivity of a mouse brain to sights and sounds by sending signals to inhibitory thalamic reticular nucleus cells located deep inside the brain. To study attention, Dr. Halassas team designed a test that challenged mice to focus and ignore distractions. The researchers trained mice to use either a light or a sound to figure out which of two doors hid a milk reward. Before each decision, the mice heard a noise that told them to anticipate the light or the sound that would lead them to the correct door. The mice then needed to use the right cue and ignore the irrelevant one in order to get their reward. The researchers used genetically modified mice in which specific neurons could be activated or inhibited with rays of light. Silencing neurons in the PFC while the mice anticipated the cue increased errors. The mice chose the wrong door in response to the light or sound cue, implying they could not concentrate in that setting. In contrast, silencing neurons of the visual cortex, the part of the brain that processes visual information, during anticipation had no effect on attention. The mice chose the correct door in response to a light cue. Overall, the results suggested that connections between PFC and sensory cortical neurons were not involved with this type of attention, as previously thought. Further experiments suggested that the TRN played a critical role. Turning on TRN neurons involved in vision during anticipation of the light cue increased errors, whereas turning that same circuit off had the opposite effect the mice had trouble paying attention to the sound but not the light. We interpreted this to mean that inactivating the visual TRN makes irrelevant visual input much more distracting, Dr. Halassa says. The team also observed that when mice needed to focus on the light, activity dropped in the visual TRN and increased in the part of the thalamus that processes visual inputs, called the lateral geniculate nucleus. However, those changes did not happen when the PFC was inactivated. These findings suggested that the PFC modifies activity in the thalamus in order to shift attention toward visual information. To figure out if fluctuations in the TRN and LGN were linked, the researchers developed a new technique called chloride photometry that allowed them to directly monitor how much chloride was entering LGN neurons in real time. The more chloride ions flowed into a neuron, the more inhibited the mice became. The group found that more chloride entered and inhibited the LGN during trials that required mice to ignore the light and focus on the sound. With this new technique, we can actually watch how circuit problems in the mouse thalamus may lead to problems with concentration that underlie certain neuropsychiatric disorders in humans, Dr. Halassa says. This work could provide the mechanistic basis for Dr. Cricks theory of the thalamic searchlight. COURTESY OF DR. MICHAEL HALASSA / NYU LANGONE MEDICAL CENTER Scientists mapped out the brain circuitry that helps mice focus. Walk and Roll raises awareness of debilitating syndromes Hundreds of Southwest Floridians will Walk and Roll to raise awareness for Guillain-Barre Syndrome and Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, two rare and often misdiagnosed auto-immune syndromes that have debilitating effects. Most people, and even a lot of doctors, have never heard of GBS or CIDP, says Santo Garcia, a Fort Myers resident who was diagnosed with CIDP in 2007 and who is the current board president of the GBS | CIDP Foundation International, a nonprofit organization headquartered in Pennsylv ania that advocates, raises awareness and funds research for treatments and a cure. In both GBS and CIDP, a persons immune system attacks their nerve cells, leading to muscle weakness and fatigue, difficulty walking and even paralysis. The GBS | CIDP Foundation International launched its Walk and Roll campaign earlier this year in major markets across the U.S. Dozens of locally organized events have already occurred in places such as New York City, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Boston, Dallas and Chicago. The events are often set in community parks and have a course of less than 1 mile, making it possible for most everyone to participate whether they can walk independently or need a wheelchair or walker. The first Southwest Florida Walk and Roll sets out at 10 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, at Lakes Park in South Fort Myers. To sign up or for more information, visit gbs-cidpwalk.org or contact Allison Dadouris at the GBS | CIDP Foundation International by calling (610) 667-0131 or emailing email@example.com.

PET TALESMemories are foreverA visit to a pet cemetery is a glimpse of the timelessness of the human-animal bond BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickOverlooking the river Seine on the outskirts of Paris lies a green place of remembrance. Cats wander through, and people stroll quietly, occasionally stopping to read short stories etched in stone. It is the Cimetiere des Chiens, the worlds first public pet cemetery, and it is proof positive that pets have an afterlife. Dogs, cats, birds, bunnies and even a horse or two have been laid to rest here since the peaceful parks founding in 1899. Inscriptions on headstones bear silent witness to human grief at the loss of beloved pets: Irreplaceable. Ici repose Love (here lies love). Tout notre amour (all our love). You might be surprised to learn that famed canine star of the silver screen Rin Tin Tin is buried here. He was born in France, rescued as a 5-day-old puppy by a doughboy from a World War I battlefield and taken to America. After his death, his remains were returned to his homeland. Fans leave treats on his headstone. Also memorialized (although they died before the cemetery was founded) are Moustache, the mascot of Napoleons Grande Armee, and Barry, a Saint Bernard renowned for saving 40 lives and dying in an attempt to save a 41st person. Not all of the pets buried here are famous or heroic. They are something even better: beloved companions of people from all walks of life. Here lie Rosy and Ulysse; Riki-Tiki, born in Moscow July 4, 1918, died in Paris November 6, 1928; a pair of gray Persian cats named Pacha and Darius; Cavalier King Charles Spaniels Rimbaud and Sissi; and dogs Rex, Caramel, Mick, Lisette and Belgrano. Aristocratic pets include Drac (1941-1953), beloved dog of Princess Elisabeth of Romania; Sully, who belonged to the Comte and Comtesse Alexandre Dumas; Marquise and Tony, the dogs of Princess Lobanof. Among the statuary chipped with age, lettering faded almost beyond reading, are more recent monuments to pets now passed: Blacky, 1973-1991; Custom Built of Tintagel Winds (Tommy), a black Labrador Retriever, 1987-2000; and Smicky, a Yorkie, 1997-2010. Fresh flowers and live plants decorate some of the sites, placed by visiting owners (pets may still be buried there) and the cemeterys caretakers. Cimetiere des Chiens isnt just for animals who have passed away. Feral cats nap on headstones or stalk along the paths. Inside a small building with a cat door they can find shelter and food, and water flows from a fountain. A crypt for a cat named Mimi has three openings (each in the shape of a cat), no doubt so the cats ghost can swoop in and out without requiring someone to open a door for her. The cats who live in the cemetery find the interior of Mimis crypt a nice resting place as well. People have buried pets with ritual and regret for millennia. Hunter-gatherer societies in eastern Siberia buried dogs with tokens of affection or in ways that suggested a special bond with them, according to a study published in 2013 in PLoS ONE: One dog skeleton was laid to rest in a sleeping position; others were buried with small ornaments or implements, some resembling toys. One man was buried with two dogs laid on either side of him, while another dog was placed in his grave wearing a necklace fashioned from four deers teeth. As I walked through the cemetery last September, it made me a little sad to think that for long-gone pets, no one is left who remembers them. But as long as visitors come here, their memories live on. Pet cemeteries serve the living and the dead. A black cat makes his home in a Paris pet cemetery.

A27 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015 NEWS A27 THE DIVA DIARIESHeres to the multi-function party dressWith four separate, but quite similar, events at four different locations on my social calendar last weekend and with very little time in between soirees I did not have the luxury of time to come up with or to change into a new ensemble for each occasion. Saturday morning was a baby shower brunch, and that evening was a sunset wedding on the river. Sunday morning was an engagement brunch, and later that afternoon was another wedding ceremony. One dress. Four events. Could it be done? When you live in a world where Ross Dress For Less exists, anything is possible. After only two trips to the dressing room and trying on about a dozen frocks, I happened upon a darling black and pink, sleeveless (two of the events were held outdoors, mind you, and Southwest Florida hasnt gotten the memo yet that its nearly November) cocktail number with wait for it pockets! Pockets are such wonderful things on dresses. You barely need a purse at all when you can slip cell phone, lip gloss and keys all in the pockets. Plus, if your manicure starts to look sad and chipped as the weekend wears on (it happens), pockets are an excellent place to hide your hands. My little Calvin Klein number was not only practical and flattering, it was just $49.99 and worth every last penny. Still, even with the best dress ever, four fabulous to-dos, all celebrating life and love, proved a bit taxing for moi. I was pretty fresh for my friend Saras nautical-themed baby shower, even though it involved waking up before 10 a.m. on a Saturday plus, there were delicious mimosas and we werent forced to play awkward shower games (whew!). Already a little buzzed (thank you, mimosa bartender lady!), I was not exactly fresh as a daisy for my friend Elliott and his groom Seans sunset wedding, but I was certainly feeling festive for it. It was fabulous catching up with old friends, and I got misty-eyed when the boys exchanged their vows. However, it probably wasnt super smart to stay up so late that night, because I was nearly an hour tardy for my friend Brooke and her fiance Carloss engagement brunch on Sunday. Luckily, my dress was holding up well (although I regretted the fact that it was sleeveless when I noticed blanket indentations on my arms at the engagement brunch a clear sign that Id quite literally jumped from bed to car. Luckily, there were MORE mimosas to help me forget my wonky looking arms. The blanket markets had worn off by 4 p.m. when I made my way to the ceremony at another lovely waterside venue where longtime partners Bill and Michael celebrated their commitment surrounded by family, friends and music. They even had yummy cupcakes with bacon bits on them. Which reminds me: As I flitted to each affair, I noticed my perfect dress getting tighter. Besides mimosas, here are just a few of the treats I was served this weekend: omelets, waffles, pork, rice and beans, stuffed shells, crab claws, wedding cake, quiche, cupcakes, sushi, so much cheese, more wedding cake and wine. Lots of wine. I am going to need to detox, and possibly go on a water and lemon fast, to recover from a weekend of celebrations. And so I can fit back into my fabulous $49.99 dress again, because any dress with pockets deserves to be out there, sparkling up a storm. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

MONEY & INVESTINGHedge funds for the rest of usWhen one thinks of wealth and affluence, certain images immediately come to mind. A huge mansion. Luxury sport car. Mega yacht. Grey Poupon Mustard. And in the financial world, the one area most closely tied to the mega-rich is the hedge fund. But what exactly is a hedge fund and why should you care? Generally speaking, a hedge fund is a pool of money that is managed by a professional money manager. At treetop level, it is similar to a mutual fund, which most readers are familiar with. Basically, you are paying someone to make investment choices on your behalf. The fund is valued on a Net Asset Value basis, meaning the share price is simply the value of the funds assets less its liabilities and expenses just like a mutual fund. So as an investor in either type of fund, you are hoping that the manager picks investments that increase in value. But this is where the similarity ends. Hedge funds get their name from the image of hedge bushes around a piece of property putting a limit around the property. In the same way, a hedge fund was initially designed to put a limit around the losses an investor would experience in the financial markets. The investor may not capture all of the upside of a bull market but she would not experience the worst of the downside either. The idea was to achieve a steady appreciation regardless of market volatility. Hedge funds are only open to accredited investors. This means that as an individual investor you need to have joint income of $300,000 or more or have a net worth of more than $1 million in order to invest in a hedge fund. The SEC puts this requirement in place because a hedge fund manager can do almost anything she wants with the money in the fund within reason. One day she can buy gold futures, the next puts on Microsoft, the next New York City Mass Transit bonds. So the SEC decided only sophisticated investors were able to evaluate such an investment class. I put the word sophisticated in quotes because I dont know when having money equated to financial intelligence. In fact, Ive often found the opposite to be true. Just ask Bernie Madoffs investors whether they were sophisticated enough to understand what they were getting into. Despite limiting the types of investors who can put money in a hedge fund, these pools of money can be absolutely massive. It is estimated that today there is more than $2.7 trillion invested in hedge funds. And individual funds can be massive. One such fund company, Bridgewater, currently has more than $155 billion in assets alone. The returns of these mega-funds can be extraordinary as well. A large fund can gain or lose $10 billion in assets in a single year. So why is there so much controversy surrounding hedge funds? The first pertains to manager compensation. Typically, a hedge fund manager gets paid via a flat percentage of assets under management as well as a larger percent of the profits of the fund. For example, a typical structure may be 1 percent of assets plus 20 percent of all profits. For larger funds, these numbers can be mind blowing. For example, George Soros was paid $4 billion in 2013. That wasnt the return on his fund, that was his compensation for one year. And there were a number of other fund managers who made similar amounts of money. And because of current tax laws, these managers are taxed at very low rates, which many find unfair. A second controversy around hedge funds revolves around systematic risk or the ability of hedge funds to destabilize the entire financial system or even the entire global economy. The thought process here is that hedge funds are getting so large or are using leverage to take on such massive bets that if these positions move significantly in the wrong direction it could wreak havoc across other banks and financial institutions. An example of this was in the late s when Long Term Capital Management bet on emerging market bonds and started to take massive losses on its positions as the market moved against it. To make these bets, the fund had taken on significant loans from several major banks and the losses would have caused many of these banks to fail. The Federal Reserve had to step in to guarantee these loans in order to prevent a total failure of the banking industry. So with all of these issues, why are hedge funds so popular among the rich and large institutions? The answer is that people want to believe that there are some money managers out there who will be able to grow their money year in and year out regardless of stock or bond conditions. And in the past few years, there have been a handful of managers who have done just that. The only problem I see is that most funds have only been around for 10 or 20 years and just dont have the track record to show that in the long run they justify their managements jaw dropping compensation. In the meantime, I guess I will stick with my S&P indexed mutual fund and Frenchs Yellow Mustard.

Huntington Bancshares Incorporated. with the fact that restaurant sales volumes in Collier and Lee counties in fact all over Florida show a significant increase over 2014 numbers? In Collier and Lee the increase is 10.2 percent (9.5 percent in Collier and 10.7 percent in Lee), and its not far behind that in Charlotte as well, the experts suggest. The statewide jump is 7.8 percent. The answer to that question is maybe for the statisticians, and very likely for restaurant owners who have recently opened new ventures with a sense of adventure, as well. Restaurateurs might say, Yeah but my cost is going up too. And these are topline revenue numbers, they have nothing to do with food or labor costs, says Craig Timmins, a principal in the commercial real estate firm, IPC Naples. IPC the acronym stands for Investment Properties Corp. compiled regional data from federal and state numbers. But I dont think their costs overall are up 10 percent, he adds. The data also shows that restaurant sales in Lee and Collier counties amounted to $955 and $607 million, respectively, in 2009, but jumped to $1.37 billion and $902 million in those counties this year. One would hope that overall, the restaurant industry is showing popular trends, Mr. Timmins adds. Popular trends, maybe also a sense that the market is strong enough to let restaurateurs stretch out and try something new. Harold Balink, for example, just downsized from the 45-employee restaurant Cru to open Harolds in south Lee County, with five employees. For him, thats stretching out spending 50 hours instead of 70 per week, and getting back in the kitchen all the time, he says. Harolds is an upscale place that serves locally raised, drug-free pork and chicken along with vegetables and fruits at their apogee from the local Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm, among other places, he says. Hes also offering local fish, some of it delivered earlier in the day (for example, the lion fish, braised fennel and saffron tomatoes, from a catch delivered by spear fishers), as well as a range of other selections based on Mr. Balinks adventurous American palate and skill in the kitchen. Its not just the economy rebounding, says Mr. Balink. Its the universities, the airport growing, businesses coming, and its baby boomers. They were always coming, and theyre still coming, he insists. Also, local government seems more business prone, or at least savvy or maybe its just him, the veteran of several new ventures throughout the years, he notes. The government red tape is much more streamlined than it used to be, he says. I dont know whether its because Ive done it so much, or they have. My previous (ventures) have never been as smooth as this one was. They seem to be a lot more probusiness than they were. Or maybe its just that I have my shit together now. For Bob Mulroy and his partners, the new restaurant climate is a chance to serve foie gras and roasted bone marrow along with fried chicken, shrimp and grits and other cuisines from throughout the South at his new Punta Gorda restaurant, Leroys Southern Kitchen & Bar, which opened just last month. That probably wouldnt have worked five or six years ago because no one wanted to fork out the dough required to enjoy it, he acknowledges. But times have changed. For us in particular it was the right time to try this, he says. It was a great location, and the economy is doing well. Real estate dictates everything down here, and thats doing so much better (than a few years ago). It means the business can hop even in September. September is a completely dead time of year, traditionally, but it was a great time for us to open. And for Mari and Christian Vivet, the new economy and the newly curious eaters allowed them to open their new restaurant, the Blue Rendez Vouz French Bistro on Sanibel Island. In May. Traditionally, thats the worst time to jump-start a service-industry business that depends on disposable income and adventurous or educated good taste, but this year, even with so many new restaurants opening, it proved opportune. The place has been booming, right long with the stats. With the appetizers, tastes, wines and desserts, not to mention a tawny port at the end of a meal that might include an entre of Lapin au Vin Blanc et aux Champignons, for example, hitting the $85 per check size, like Joes Stone Crab, wont be a problem. Did we have a crystal ball and see this boom in restaurants opening? Mrs. Vivet asks rhetorically. Not at all. Some of our friends thought we were crazy to make a change at our age (from South Fort Myers where Harolds is now located), but we took a risk to fulfill a dream. It boils down to having faith in what we do. We started (in the food business) in 2006 during some pretty tough economic times. We always felt that if we could survive those times we could only go up from there. Each year since we opened we got better. Our beloved patrons know what we do and spread the world for us. Yes, we feel the economy is coming back and people are eating out more. But we dont change the sauce, as Chef puts it. We trust people will like it.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Allocate Those Assets WellWhether youre aware of it or not, you allocate your assets, dividing them among categories such as stocks, bonds and cash. The trick is to do it well, protecting yourself through diversification, so that when one category underperforms, another may compensate to some degree. The goal is to reduce your risk while achieving necessary growth. So how much should you park in each category? An old rule of thumb is to subtract your age from 100 and devote that portion to stocks. So a 50-year-old would have 50 percent of his portfolio in stocks and a 70-year-old only 30 percent. As people started living longer, the number to subtract from got bigger and is often 110 now. Some studies suggest that a 60-40 stock-bond mix is a good ratio in retirement, but theres no formula thats right for everyone. Assess your own situation carefully to determine your best allocation mix one that will allow you to sleep well at night while still generating the income and portfolio growth required for the rest of your life. It can be helpful to jot down how much you have, where its invested, how quickly you expect your money to grow in your various categories, how much you will want to withdraw each year in retirement, and how long your money needs to last. Know that the stock market has averaged a gain of close to 7 percent annually over many decades, adjusted for inflation, while fairly conservative bonds have offered up to about 3 percent. Real estate is another option for those who know what theyre doing. Cash actually loses value over time, due to inflation. Since each category grows in value at a different rate, your allocation mix will shift over time. Thus, its smart to periodically rebalance your investments to restore your desired proportions. If youre intimidated by all this, a financial planner ideally compensated by fees, not commissions can help you work through it. You can find some at napfa.org. Meanwhile, learn more about retirement investing at fool.com/ retirement/index.aspx. Webvan CrashedMy dumbest investment was Webvan. At least I sold my shares before the company disappeared. P.M., onlineThe Fool Responds: The Webvan story offers many lessons. For example, its not enough to have a great business idea and even to be first, or early, to market with it. Sometimes the timing is off and the world isnt quite ready for the great idea. Sometimes the company might not have the financial resources to grow quickly enough and outpace competitors. Sometimes management may not be as skilled as necessary.Webvan was founded in 1996 with the idea of letting people order groceries online that would then be delivered to their homes. It was backed by some of the most well-respected venture capitalists, but it still ended up a penny stock, having blown through more than $800 million before ending up filing for bankruptcy protection in 2001. Its customers liked its service, but there werent enough of them.The idea of grocery delivery isnt dead, though. Amazon.com is offering it in select markets, having hired some of Webvans executives, and its not without competition, either, such as from Whole Foods Market.Webvans flameout was spectacular, but not isolated. It was part of the Internet bubble that burst in 2000, after investors had bid up the value of many stocks way beyond what they were reasonably worth at the time. Speculation is dangerous. Proven profitability is preferable. Procter & Gamble Looking GoodShares of Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) have shed close to 20 percent of their value so far this year, presenting a compelling opportunity for investors to buy into a world-class company. Just how world-class? Well, consider that with a recent market value of $200 billion and annual revenue topping $75 billion, P&G is a consumer products force. It sports brand names that include Always, Bounty, Charmin, Crest, Dawn, Downy, Gain, Gillette, Olay, Oral-B, Pampers, Pantene, Tide, Vicks and Whisper many of which generate more than $1 billion in revenue each year. The stock is down because the company has been struggling with sagging sales as well as a strong dollar. In response, it has been selling off some of its underperforming businesses, such as Duracell. (It also sold 43 beauty brands, including Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Hugo Boss, CoverGirl and Max Factor.) Procter & Gambles turnaround will take time, but the company is still a giant in its field, with more than $10 billion in annual free cash flow. While they wait, patient believers can collect a fat dividend that recently yielded 3.6 percent. The company has increased that payout for 59 consecutive years. P&G is also rewarding investors by buying back millions of shares while theyre inexpensive, boosting the value of remaining shares. (The Motley Fool recommends Procter & Gamble.) Banks in my heritage include the Bank of Massachusetts (born in 1783) and the Bank of Italy in San Francisco (1904). I issued the first bank credit card in 1958, bought MBNA in 2006 and am a major credit card issuer. In the 1990s, I became the first bank with coast-to-coast operations in the United States, and Im now in all 50 states. I bought the troubled Countrywide Financial in 2008, followed by Merrill Lynch in 2009, and soon after, I received a government bailout. Im performing well now, serving roughly 48 million customers with close to 5,000 locations. Who am I? (Answer: Bank of America) Fiduciary vs. Suitability StandardsQWhats a fiduciary standard? P.T., Ashland, KentuckyAIts a critical distinction to understand when it comes to people who give you financial advice. Traditional brokers, along with many insurance salespeople and some financial advisers, adhere to a suitability standard, meaning that any advice they give you should be suitable for you. If there is a range of suitable investments for you, and one will net them a hefty commission or bonus for selling you on it, they can recommend that one for you. Among all the suitable options for you, they can recommend the least suitable. Clearly, they can still look out for themselves first, ahead of you.The fiduciary standard is much higher, requiring anyone held to it to put your interests first. It currently applies to registered investment advisers (RIAs), and theres movement afoot to extend it to more or all financial advisers. Fiduciary advisers have a duty to care and to keep up with their clients investments and financial condition, and they must disclose material facts and conflicts of interest.If someone is advising you, ask if theyre operating under the fiduciary standard, and get it in writing. ***QWhat are investment notes, and how safe are they? E.W., Tacoma, WashingtonAThe term note usually refers to an intermediate-term bond, with a maturity between one and 10 years. Treasury notes, sold by the government, are the least risky. Corporate bonds are more risky. Higher-quality companies offer lower interest rates, while companies with lower credit ratings must offer higher rates in order to find buyers. Junk bonds, with the highest rates, are issued by risky companies.Learn more at investor.gov/investing-basics, investinginbonds.com, morningstar.com/bonds.html and treasurydirect.gov.

To arrange a showing or for more information, call 777-7007, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit ruthbethem.com. 2300 Carrington Court, #203COURTESY PHOTOSThe latest market report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors shows increased activity in neighborhoods east of U.S. 41, including south, east and central Naples. Overall closed sales for single-family homes in the $1 million to $2 million category outpaced all other price categories, with a 79 percent increase (quarter over quarter) from 56 homes sold in the third quarter of 2014 to 100 sold in the third quarter of 2015. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). The third quarter report confirms to us that summer was strong for home sales, says Mike Hughes, NABOR president and vice president and general manager of Downing-Frye Realty. Citing double-digit increases in closed sales for homes priced above $300,000, Mr. Hughes adds, Im especially impressed at how well the highend single-family home market did in the past three months, because we typically see more people buy in this range between Christmas and Easter. Geographically, activity was most remarkable during the third quarter in inland neighborhoods of Naples, with activity in the south Naples condominium market leading the pack. According to a comparison of third quarter 2014 versus third quarter 2015, south Naples saw an 8 percent increase in pending sales for condominiums, a 9 percent increase in closed sales for condominiums, and a 24 percent increase in median closed price for condominiums. Broker analysts agreed that a renewed interest in homes east of U.S. 41 was not a surprise. Sales of homes near the beach happened faster following the recession because of their prime location, says Pat Pitocchi, NABOR media relations chairperson and corporate trainer at DowningFrye Realty. But the latest reports show us the housing market in all geographic areas within Naples has recovered as buyers are showing increased interest in our inland properties. Bill Coffey, broker manager of Amerivest Realty Naples, notes that the reports also show a strong trend in homeowners relying on financing versus paying cash. There was an 11 percent decrease in cash sales, from 66.8 percent in September 2014 to 55.6 percent in September 2015. When the number of homes being financed continues to increase through the summer months, its a good indicator that more full-time families are being attracted to the area, Mr. Coffey says. The inland areas of central and east Naples also saw heightened activity during the third quarter. Central Naples (which includes neighborhoods between U.S. 41 and Collier Boulevard) saw a 24 percent increase (quarter over quarter) in overall median closed price, from $185,000 in third quarter 2014 to $230,000 in third quarter 2015. Single-Sales of inland homes outpace those near shoreSEE NABOR, B16

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015 Six scary places you could make yourself at home if you dare TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMThe Internet is littered with memes of spooky homes asking, Would you live here for a month for a million dollars? If your answer is not only yes, but that you might even enjoy living at one of these homes, then dive into this list of six houses where some scary stuff seems right at home. If you dare As seen in Silence of the LambsThe 1980s and s were rife with some of the most titillating horror films to ever cut an evil swath across the silver screen. But none from that time period has been quoted more, talked about more and reproduced more than Silence of the Lambs, in which the basement shenanigans of one Buffalo Bill scared moviegoers to no end. Now the house of horror where he worked on his best dance moves is on the market. Just outside Pittsburgh, Penn., the four-bedroom Victorian is offered for $300,000. The DakotaJohn Lennon moved into The Dakota in 1973 and lived there until he was murdered outside the buildings 72nd Street entry in 1980 by a deranged fan. The buildings exterior was filmed as the home of Mia Farrows devil-mama character in Rosemarys Baby. Some people say it is the scariest building in New York City, with a long history of ghosts and hauntings. A long history of ghastly stories surround The Dakota, including tales of workers arms forced into lights to burn them, ghostly children roaming the halls, former music legends in the foyer and tenants having metal bars thrown at them in the buildings basement. Several apartments in the iconic residents near Central Park are currently on the market. Never say neverThe Ferris wheel is gone, the music is nothing more than muted notes on the wind and the laughter of children has died away but yet something still remains. Even though the King of Pop hasnt lived in the home since 2005 (he died in 2009), there are many who say Michael Jacksons spirit still haunts the halls of his Neverland Ranch, where visitors and workers alike have reported a ghostly presence they are sure is Michael.Now named the Sycamore Valley Ranch, it consists of 2,700 acres. The 12,000-square-foot main house has undergone a full-scale remodel, bringing it back to its original glory when it was constructed in 1982. Made famous in Scarface In the 1950s and early s, Miami Beach was the most popular vacation destination in the United States, a glamorous town of upscale oceanfront hotels and nightclubs where celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Jackie Gleason partied and performed. Gambling was tolerated, A-list strippers kept the conventioneers happy and the five New York crime families declared it to be open territory where anything was tolerated. By the late 1970s, Miami was a wasteland of drugs and murder. South Beach was mostly flophouses and senior citizens trying to escape the wide-open drug gang wars. Such was the backdrop for the 1983 film Scarface, in which this mansion was the home of Cuban immigrant and drug lord Say hello to my little friend Tony Montana (Al Pacino). Interestingly, the house is actually in Montecito, Calif. A Wild West ghost townColorado was the home base for some of the Wild Wests most notorious outlaws. Butch Cassidy and many of his fellow crooks had hideouts in the Rocky Mountains where they had an eagle-eye view of any approaching posses on their trail. Uptop, Colo., a former ghost town now for sale at a bargain price of $1 million, was established in the 1870s shortly after the Denver & Rio Grand Railroad carved out the Railway Above the Clouds. Uptop later became a coal mining town and tourist attraction until a new highway in the 1960s brought an end to the good times. By the late 1990s, everyone was gone. John Pierpont JP Morgan was bigger than Warren Buffett and Steve Jobs combined. The financial genius of the late 1800s and early 1900s created General Electric and U.S. Steel. He was the nations banker, providing loans in both 1895 and 1907 to keep the government afloat. Mr. Morgan was a huge man who suffered from several facial issues that left him with a grotesque purple nose such that children and even some adults were afraid to look at him. He was scheduled to sail on the ill-fated Titanic but canceled at the last minute. While no one has claims to have seen his ghost there, Mr. Morgans former Long Island camp is said to be haunted by his daughter who is sometimes seen walking the corridors in a long black dress. (The late comedian Joan Rivers claimed that her New York home was haunted by the financiers niece who would visit her every night at 3 a.m.) If youre brave enough to want more information about any of the about properties, visit toptenrealestatedeals.com.

FEATURED RESALE LISTINGS10282915-2694 OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY NOV. 1 1-4 p.m. OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY NOV. 1 1-4 p.m. OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY NOV. 1 1-4 p.m.family homes in East Naples (identified as east of Collier Boulevard) experienced a 29 percent increase in median closed price, from $221,000 in third quarter 2014 to $285,000 in third quarter 2015.The September statisticsNABOR also released its September 2015 market report, which shows a 10 percent decrease in pending sales (homes under contract), from 829 homes in September 2014 to 749 in September 2015. Mr. Hughes says the dip in pending sales might have been tied to the stock markets erratic behavior, which tends to shake consumer confidence and cause people to delay big purchase decisions. The third quarter and September 2015 reports also uncovers a possible new trend in inventory, as the number of homes for sale in the $300,000 and below price range was no longer the largest category of inventory. Brenda Fioretti, managing broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty, points out that of the 945 homes for sale under $300,000, only 291 are singlefamily homes. However, she notes, there are 505 single-family homes for sale in the $300,000 to $500,000 price category, and 598 single-family homes for sale in the $500,000 to $1 million price category. Due to the increase in home values, many homes previously listed in the lower price categories have crept up to the next higher price category, Ms. Fioretti says, adding, This is referred to as bracket creep. Report highlightsNABOR third quarter market report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the overall findings: Overall pending sales decreased 1 percent, from 2,304 homes in the third quarter of 2014 to 2,270 homes in the third quarter of 2015. Overall closed sales increased 3 percent, from 9,658 in the 12 months ending third quarter 2014 to 9,956 in the 12 months ending third quarter 2015. Overall median closed price increased 15 percent, from $262,000 in the 12 months ending third quarter 2014 to $300,000 in the 12 months ending third quarter 2015. Overall median closed price for homes over $300,000 decreased 5 percent, from $545,000 in the 12 months ending third quarter 2014 to $520,000 in the 12 months ending third quarter 2015. Overall inventory decreased 3 percent, from 3,702 in the third quarter of 2014 to 3,606 in the third quarter of 2015. There is a 4.24-month supply of inventory. Average days on market decreased 1 percent, from 77 days in third quarter 2014 to 78 days in third quarter 2015. The NABOR September 2015 market report reflects these overall (singlefamily and condominium) findings: Overall pending sales decreased 10 percent, from 829 homes in September 2014 to 749 homes in September 2015. Overall closed sales increased 3 percent, from 9,658 homes in the 12 months ending September 2015 to 9,956 homes in the 12 months ending September 2015. Overall median closed price increased 15 percent, from $262,000 in the 12 months ending September 2014 to $300,000 in the 12 months ending September 2015. Overall inventory decreased 3 percent, from 3,702 in September 2014 to 3,606 in September 2015. Average days on the market increased 7 percent, from 74 days in September 2014 to 79 days in September 2015. The third quarter report also shows us that a lot more people purchased single-family homes above $1 million this summer than in the same quarter last year, Steve Barker, advising broker for Equity Realty, says. Indeed, the third quarter market report reflects the median closed price for single-family homes in the $1 million and above price category decreased 2 percent, from $1,350,000 in the third quarter of 2014 to $1,325,000 in the third quarter of 2015, which could have spurred sales.Historically, we see an upswing in the number of homes that go up for sale in October in anticipation of seasonal buyers, Mr. Hughes says. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, because it appears the increased demand for single-family homes from full-time residents has the potential to keep absorbing our existing inventory.

Every time I watch the news, I become more and more aware of that fact. In the last few months, debates over the Confederate flag, the Black Lives Matter movement and Presidential candidate Donald Trumps stance against undocumented Mexican immigrants have dominated headlines. While Spinning Into Butter does not address those subjects directly, they could very well inform the way audiences enter into the world of the play. The events of the show are set into motion when an African-American student at a small college in Vermont receives threatening and blatantly racist notes. School administrators immediately try to stem the damage, arranging forums on race without necessarily having any idea of how to address underlying structural problems that could have contributed to these racially charged incidents.Racial tension fuels Spinning Into Butter Write on Sanibel Island Writers Conference celebrates 10th anniversary BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com BY BY N AN A CY C C Y S S S TE TE TE TS TS ON nst nst nst nst nst n ets ets ets t on@ on@ on on@ o o o o rid rid rid awe awe aw ekl ekl ekl ek y.c y.c y.c y.c om om om m WRITERS CREATE IN ISOLATION, but crave community. Most people who are serious about writing spend a lot of time alone in a room, staring at the wall, and thinking deeply about how to express something that will not only speak for them, but will also speak to a reader, says Tom DeMarchi, director of the Sanibel Island Writers Conference.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS The benefits of a well-watered life Earlier this year, I asked a friend to water the fruit trees in my yard while I was out of town. This was during the dry season, when rain felt like a distant memory. I came home four weeks later to find that everything had thrived in my absence except my avocado tree. Many of its leaves were brown, and the ones that hadnt dried up were decimated by insects. Through research, I discovered that avocado trees especially young trees have a slow water uptake system. They need frequent and long waterings early in life. This answered the first question as to why the leaves had gone brown, but it didnt explain the bugs. The plant looked as if it were under attack. Its leaves were chewed and bedraggled. What was eating it? And how could I stop it? While I puzzled this out, I watered the little avocado every day. Soon, it started to perk up. The dead leaves fell away and healthy new leaves sprouted. I also noticed something I through was strange: The insects also disappeared. Whatever had been eating the leaves decided to move on. What happened to the bugs that had been chewing my avocado tree? I found out recently during a class at a local nursery. The master gardener spoke about insecticides and said that most yards dont need them. Sure, the bugs will take a few bites, he said, but they mostly dont bother the healthy plants. Have you ever noticed that when a plant is already weak, thats when it attracts the insects? I thought back to my avocado tree. He was right; the only time the bugs chewed on it was when it was already in a bad state. Which got me thinking about relationships. I have noticed in my own life that when I am feeling weak or vulnerable, I let in all kinds of pests. Married men who say, I love you. Im just not ready to leave my wife. Male friends who wait until their girlfriends are out of town and then call me up in the middle of the night. Potential boyfriends who schedule me last on the priority list. When I dont have myself together, these people seem just fine. It never occurs to me that they might not have the best intentions. But when I am feeling strong when my professional life is in order, when I see my good friends regularly, when everything is copacetic in my family then the people with less-thannoble motivations suddenly lose their hold on me. I see with perfect clarity what theyre really up to. For a long time, I made the mistake of thinking I needed to fight against this kind of person, that the only way to keep my life free of emotional pests was to actively struggle against them. But now I see thats not it at all. Id be wasting my energy if I tried to root them out of my life. As with all infestations, there are always more. No, the trick is to make sure Im wellwatered. If I do what nourishes me, Im finding, then the people who dont have my interests at heart naturally fall away. No insecticide needed.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015 Writers Conference, put on by Florida Gulf Coast University, provides that sense of community and camaraderie for writers. I think people come to events like our conference to network, and to learn some new skills and hone their craft and get new ideas, says Mr. DeMarchi. But I think for a lot of people, they come to feel like theyre part of a community and feel less alone. Thats why they turn to books in the first place, to feel less alone. The Sanibel Island Writers Conference has been providing a haven for writers since 2006. Typically held the first full weekend each November, it has drawn participants from around the country as well as from the Caribbean, Australia, Canada and Europe. This year, its 10th anniversary, there are 36 presenters on the program and about 200 registrants. Were international, baby, Mr. DeMarchi says proudly. Not bad for a conference with humble beginnings. When Mr. DeMarchi first joined the faculty at FGCU, fellow teacher Jim Brock approached him and explained theyd been trying to develop a writers conference, but it had never gotten off the ground. Would Mr. DeMarchi be willing to give it a shot? I said, If youre looking for someone with absolutely zero experience, Im your man, Mr. DeMarchi recalls. He estimates 40 to 50 people attended the first conference, and only five were FGCU students. There were 14 presenters. Over the years, the conference has offered classes, readings and keynote speeches by award-winning, best-selling authors such as Susan Orlean, Augusten Burroughs, Tim OBrien, Sena Jeter Naslund, Richard Russo, Andre Dubus III and presidential inaugural poet Richard Blanco. This years line-up includes Christina Baker Kline (Orphan Train), Leslie Jamison (The Empathy Exams), poet and memoirist Nick Flynn (Another Bullshit Night in Suck City and The Ticking is the Bomb) and Mountain Goat musician John Darnielle (Wolf in White Van). Award-winning novelist and MacArthur Fellowship recipient Edwidge Danticat (Krik? Krak!, Brother, Im Dying) is the keynote speaker. (Her talk at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, in Schein Hall at BIG ARTS, is open to the public, and free.) Its gotten better every year, says poet and novelist Beth Ann Fennelly, whos taught at the conference since it began. She notes that Mr. DeMarchi, an instructor in the department of language and literature at FGCU, teaches a class in which his students read conference presenters books prior to the event. That feels so nice when youre an author, Ms. Fennelly says. You show up in Sanibel for the first time and dont feel youre facing a giant room of strangers who dont know who you are. The person who picks you up at the airport has read your book. You dont have the challenge of trying to win people over. She attends 10 to 12 conferences a year and says the Sanibel Island Writers Conference is the best of them all, calling it a cross between a vacation and the summer camp that you never got to go to if you were a nerdy bookish kid who hated softball and loved sonnets. Like Ms. Fennelly, novelist John Dufresne (The Lie That Tells a Truth: A Guide to Writing Fiction) has also taught at the conference every year. It was a much smaller event in the beginning, and had more modest aspirations: Focus on writing, and lets see what happens, he says. Tom was fortunate in finding a great venue, BIG ARTS, and finding a place where we could all stay together and develop a community and hang out together, make it very sociable. Writers are accessible to the students, he says. As the conference grew, Mr. DeMarchi added musicians and songwriting classes to the line-up. The number of writers has grown exponentially, Mr. Dufresne says. Theres a lot going on, something for everybody. Its almost like a writers conference on steroids. The conference is so popular, Mr. DeMarchi keeps a list of 600 to 700 writers whove contacted him, who want to present at the conference. He also has his own Wish List. This year, the No. 1 person I wouldve loved to have gotten was Elvis Costello, he says, referring to the British musician who recently released his memoir, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink. Thats just my fan-boy wish list, my dream, someone whose work I admire so much. He truly is an inspirational figure, a wonderful storyteller and charismatic performer. Other writers at the top of his list are: Karen Russell, Amy Tan, Toni Morrison, David Sedaris, New Yorker critic James Wood, Richard Ford and George Saunders. I always try to put together a conference I would want to attend, he says. Thats not to say that things always run smoothly. We have a good idea of what to expect. There are the known knowns of what can go wrong, and then there are the unknowns, he says. For example, they couldnt predict last years lightning storm that blew out the generator, leaving them with only half the lights and air conditioning. Then there was the year Cheryl Strayed (Wild) was supposed to be keynote speaker and instructor. Six moths before her memoir was released, Mr. DeMarchi had signed her on to attend. But just before the conference, she became ill and was told by her doctor she couldnt travel. The hardest part, on my end, was telling the people whod shown up for her, Mr. DeMarchi says. She ignites a fervor a bit above the norm. Groups of women from around the country, different states, had flown in together exclusively for Cheryl. There was a woman from Australia who was there specifically for Cheryl. They were disappointed, but understood. Writer Steve Almond saved the day, he says, teaching Ms. Strayeds workshops and meeting with those whod signed up for manuscript consultations with her.The literary world Literary agent Christopher Schelling, who represents authors such as Augusten Burroughs, Rainbow Rowell and Kate Mulgrew, presented at the conferences second year, as a favor to a friend of a friend. I could not have been more surprised at the conferences quality, he writes in an email. Ill keep coming back until Tom wont have me anymore. Theres no better writers conference in the country. The quality of the students and the writers on the faculty is far beyond what Ive seen anywhere else. Everything runs smoothly. Everyones happy. Everyone has a wonderful experience, he says. Its not just a trip to Florida in November that makes it a good conference; its the time and energy and love that Tom DeMarchi puts into it, and the combination of literature and music is irresistible.Florida Weekly columnist Artis Henderson remembers the first time she attended the conference, in 2007. It was the first time I felt I had found my element, a group of people who were smart and passionate about reading and writing in the same way I was. I had never found a group of people like that. She still remembers Lynne Barretts class in story structure and uses the principles she learned. Id been thinking of writing a book, but I didnt believe it was possible. It just seemed like a crazy dream. The conference was the first time it occurred to me that it could actually happen. The conference, she says, showed her that a literary world existed. Before, I didnt know there was a literary world where writers hobnobbed. It seemed magical. It didnt seem real. I dreamed of being a writer for so long. I didnt realize people did this for a living, that they would teach, write books, go to conferences. I thought: I want that to be me. The conference was inspirational in ways she didnt expect. A conversation with presenter/novelist William Giraldi changed her life. He asked her, What is the story you want to write? What is the story burning in you? she recalls. And I said, I want to write a story about military wives. And he said, Well then, you need to write that book. Ms. Henderson, who attended a couple more conferences, as well as graduate school, wound up writing that book. Unremarried Widow, her memoir about rebuilding her life at 26 years old after her husband died in Iraq, was published by Simon & Schuster last year. Mr. DeMarchi asked Ms. Henderson to present at the 2014 conference. She taught a class in memoir writing and read from her book just before bestselling novelist Richard Russo presented the keynote address. Long before Tom asked me to be a presenter, I had a wish list and that was on my list, that I could go back to Sanibel as a presenter, she says. One of the coolest things that has happened in this first decade that I would love to see happen again and again, Mr. DeMarchi says, is to have more people like Artis or Kimberly Lojewski (whos presenting this year), who started off as attendees long ago and have developed into formidable writers themselves. To see that development, that growth, to see that constant in the writers, is incredible. Its probably as good as it gets. The coolest thing, he says, would be that everyone who attended the conference wrote books that were so cool that we wanted to bring them all back as presenters.

Severn House. 225 pages. Hardcover, $29.95.When Sheneel Greene, a lovely 19-yearold near-albino college student, is found dead on property connected with the Phelps Paper Company, the police inquiry seems lackadaisical. Her English teacher, Lillian Turner, was first concerned when Sheneel was only considered missing. She and her husband, Johnny Bellefleur, a spiritually and psychologically wounded war veteran, feel obligated to pursue the mystery first of Sheneels disappearance and then of her demise. Johnny, who for too long served on a Navy hospital ship processing deceased soldiers bodies and body parts for burial, runs a missing persons detective agency. Alone, he staffs a shabby office made available through the influence of his police detective brother-in-law, Daniel Turner. Yes, this is the character whose name labels this distinctive mystery series by Michael Wiley. The attempt by Lillian and Johnny to investigate together serves as a vehicle for healing their troubled relationship, but it turns into a monstrous adventure the stress and violence of which promise to destroy them. Johnny, whose nightmares are full of death even without this current undertaking, will have plenty of reasons to seek the skills of his VA counselors. He and Lillian are pursuing deadly secrets. Sheneel had enough knowledge of Phelps company doings to be dangerous. So did her brother Alex, who also becomes a victim. Now Johnny and Lillian are dangerous as well, and as the Phelps kingpin and his son make too clear, they are bringing danger upon themselves by getting near the answers to those secrets, if not hard evidence. Secrets like how did a Gullah community that once lived on land now controlled by the paper company disappear? What has compromised the health of so many who live nearby? Why do people who are exploited retain a bond of loyalty to those who exploit them? How can a major local employer in todays United States actually own law enforcement? Will Daniel Turner get serious about investigating these deaths, or is he a bought cop? Johnnys dog brings a major clue: Percy drops Sheneels hand and arm, her pale skin bearing the tattoo of a snake circling to bite its own tail, beside his master. This image, found elsewhere in the story, is laden with symbolic overtones. Not a self-amputation, the tattooed limb was cleanly cut from her body and left to be found as a warning. Its clear now that her death was no suicide. There is new construction on Phelps property, whether properly permitted or not. Its a project to pump more money into the owners coffers without regard for the contamination it will bring to the water, soil, wildlife and human life. Indeed, the Phelps mills have already been poisoning the water and land for decades. They will do anything to protect and enhance their domain. Who can stop them? The rest of the novel follows this thread, tied neatly to the murder investigations and to an exploration of Phelps and Greene family histories, entangled with the now diminished Gullah community. The author paints a chilling portrait of moral grotesques in these revelations of past deeds, though the present is horrific enough. Second Skin has a powerful literary dimension, both in its lyrical style and in its shrewd, effective use of excerpts from Emilys Dickinsons poems (and less frequent bits from other poets work). These fragments become explorations of hungry souls, past and present, on the edge of love and violence. The majority of the chapters are narrated by either Johnny or Lillian, each in a distinct voice. Most surprising are the sections narrated as inner monologues of Stephen Phelps, terse prose poems of decadence and fear. Vivid portraits of Jacksonville neighborhoods, individual places of residence and work, and landscapes root the novel firmly in the readers imagination. A collection of well-drawn minor characters, notably the 60-something prostitute named Felicity and the Gullah leader named Papa Crowe, enrich the narrative tremendously. Mir. Wileys portrait of Crowe is a small masterpiece, its subject waiting endlessly for the moment to right the disgrace and betrayal of his community. Do I like, admire and even cherish this book? Indeed I do. It is a powerful followup to last years Blue Avenue and, while gloomy in so many ways, a bright promise of things to come.

Covenant Church of Naples presents An Evening of Music and Arts BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comAn Evening of Music and Arts starts at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6, at Covenant Church of Naples. Guests will enjoy the musical stylings of the Annie Moses Band, a fusion folk/ classical ensemble, and 14-year-old pianist Noah Waddell, a local youth often critically lauded as a prodigy after winning several competitions and performing as a soloist for the Tampa Bay Symphony. Both of those musical artists definitely speak to the heart of what were doing, says concert organizer Bill Barnett. Our mission is basically creating settings or groups where artists can be in community together and use their gifts to make an impact on culture. Annie Moses Band is a string and vocal ensemble comprised of classically trained siblings who meld Juilliard-trained skill with Nashville style. The group has appeared at The Grand Ol Opry, PBS and Carnegie Hall and is known for its showmanship. Violinist and vocalist Annie Wolaver Dupre was a featured chamber musician in the pre-college division of The Juilliard School and was concertmistress of the PreCollege Juilliard Orchestra. She was accepted as a scholarship student to the schools collegiate division in 2001. Her bandmates include violist William Wolaver, cellist Benjamin Wollaver, pianist Camille Wollaver, violinist and guitarist Gretchen Wollaver and electric guitarist Jeremiah Wollaver. After winning a concerto competition at age 12, Noah Waddell made his orchestral debut with Tampa Bay Symphony, playing three concerts as a soloist. In 2014, he won his first international competition in Fort Collins, Colo., and he recently performed with Coral Gables Chamber Symphony and Gulf Coast Orchestra. Hes the winner of more than two dozen competitions. His Concert for the Kids at Big Arts on Sanibel Island has raised more than $30,000 for Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. Noah has also appeared on PBSs The Curious Kids Show and Christian Television Network. One of the things that attracted us to him is that even at his age, some of the things hes doing in the community definitely connect to our vision of transforming our world, Mr. Barnett says. Tickets to An Evening of Music and Arts are $25 and $50. For tickets or more information, visit storytellerscreativearts.com.

Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you work through it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your curiosity leads you to ask questions. However, the answers might not be what you hoped to hear. Dont reject them without checking them out. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Be careful not to tackle a problem without sufficient facts. Even sure-footed Goats need to know where theyll land before leaping off a mountain path. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Appearances can be deceiving. You need to do more investigating before investing your time, let alone your money, in something that might have some hidden flaws. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your recent stand on an issue could make you the focus of more attention than you would like. But youll regain your privacy, as well as more time with loved ones, by weeks end. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty continues to impress everyone who needs reassurance about a project. But be careful you dont lose patience with those who are still not ready to act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing others too hard to do things your way could cause resentment and raise more doubts. Instead, take more time to explain why your methods will work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more considerate of those close to you before making a decision that could have a serious effect on their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for their advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have to defend a workplace decision you plan to make. Colleagues might back you up on this, but its the facts that will ultimately win the day for you. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cats co-workers might not be doing enough to help get that project finished. Your roars might stir things up, but gentle purrr-suasion will prove to be more effective. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Someone you care for needs help with a problem. Give it lovingly and without judging the situation. Whatever you feel you should know will be revealed later. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) While youre to be admired for how you handled recent workplace problems, be careful not to react the same way to a new situation until all the facts are in. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre a good friend and a trusted confidante. You would be a wonderful teacher and a respected member of the clergy. PUZZLES

ITS ALL INCLUDED 2245 VENETIAN COURT | NAPLES, FL 34109 CONTRACT BRIDGEResist that impulseBY STEVE BECKERAssume youre declarer at three notrump and West leads a heart. You win Easts jack with the queen, and the question is how to continue. There is a strong temptation to try a club finesse at this point, hoping to find West with the king. If he has it, youre sure to wind up with at least 10 tricks. But since the contract is certain to make whenever West has the king of clubs, you should start thinking in terms of what you can do if East has the king. In that case, if you lost an early club finesse, you could duck Easts heart return, but a third heart would then drive out your ace. Since you would have only eight sure tricks at that point, you would eventually have to try a diamond finesse. If it lost and West started with five hearts as in the actual deal youd go down one. For this reason, the correct play strange as it may seem is to lead the diamond jack at trick two! This ensures the contract against any distribution of the adverse cards (assuming West started with at least four hearts). If the jack holds, you next try the club finesse, guaranteeing nine tricks even if the finesse fails. If the diamond jack loses, you duck the heart return before taking the ace and then attempt the club finesse. If the finesse wins, you have at least 10 tricks. If it loses and East has no more hearts, youre also home. And if East has a heart, which means the suit was originally divided 4-4, nine tricks are again assured. The recommended approach to the play defuses the lone danger to the contract the possibility that West has a long heart suit and a side entry. Since that entry can only be the king of diamonds, you must deprive him of that card before it can be used to defeat you.

Its an odd gothic love story with a few ghosts thrown in for good measure, and although it looks slick and stylish, it just doesnt connect. Rated R.Bridge of Spies (Tom Hanks, Alan Alda, Mark Rylance) A Brooklyn lawyer (Mr. Hanks) defends an accused Russian spy (Mr. Rylance) and later tries to negotiate the spys release in exchange for an American soldier (Austin Stowell) held by the Russians. Its 20 minutes too long, and the two-act story structure is tedious and never invites emotional investment. This is a misfire for Mr. Hanks and for director Steven Spielberg. Rated PG-13.Freeheld (Julianne Moore, Ellen Page, Michael Shannon) Happy gay couple Laurel (Ms. Moore) and Stacie (Ms. Page) fight to have Laurels pension given to Stacie after Laurel is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Its an emotional gut punch of a movie thats a bit clunky at times but overall very effective. Rated PG-13.Pan (Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund) In this prequel to Peter Pan, orphan Peter (Mr. Miller) is whisked away to Neverland, where he befriends Hook (Mr. Hedlund) and together they battle Blackbeard (Mr. Jackman). The visual effects are great, but the performances and costume are too hokey. Directed by Joe Wright (Anna Karenina, Atonement), who often makes unusual creative decisions that dont work. Rated PG. The Walk 1/2(Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon) Frenchman Philippe Petit (Mr. Gordon-Levitt) plots to walk between the World Trade Center Towers on a high wire in director Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) latest. The setup is occasionally clunky, but the actual walk between the towers is breathtaking. Rated PG.Sleeping with Other People (Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Amanda Peet) After sleeping together in college, Jake (Ms. Sudeikis) and Lainey (Ms. Brie) reunite 12 years later at a sex addicts meeting but swear theyll be just friends. Its a romantic comedy, so you can imagine how this turns out. Still, its pretty funny and worth a look. Rated R.The Martian (Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels) An astronaut (Mr. Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on Mars. Meanwhile, NASA discovers hes still alive and starts a plan to rescue him. A visually stunning and wonderfully told drama, it might be the best sci-fi movie of director Ridley Scotts career which is saying something, considering he made Blade Runner and Alien. Rated PG-13.

NoRock The Kasbah is a star-studded missed opportunity. So much could have gone right, yet so much goes wrong. Bill Murray plays never-was music manager Richie Lanz, who claims he discovered Madonna but hasnt been attached to a star in years. Desperate, he books his receptionist/singer (an underused Zooey Deschanel) on a USO Tour of Afghanistan. Chaos surrounds them after landing in Kabul, and soon enough a mercenary (Bruce Willis) has helped her steal Richies passport and money to get the first flight home. Alone in Kabul, Richie enlists the help of munitions dealers Jake (Scott Caan) and Nick (Danny McBride), which gets him into more trouble. Richie also meets a prostitute (Kate Hudson) who takes advantage of him in more ways than one. All of the above takes about an hour. Its a boring hour. Theres a laugh here and there, but Richie isnt really a guy you root for because he shows few redeeming qualities (a scene with his pre-teen daughter before he leaves for Afghanistan feels thrown in and barely registers). Dont get me wrong: We always like to see Mr. Murray, the actor, on screen, but when his character starts the movie by bilking a young, untalented singer out of $1,200, its hard to embrace Richie. The story, written by Mitch Glazer, gets interesting about halfway through when Richie overhears a teenage Muslim named Salima (Leem Lubany) as she sings. To him its the voice of an angel, so he wheels and deals and gets her on Afghan Star, Afghanistans version of American Idol. This doesnt go over well with Salimas traditional father, and its quickly noted that if she dances in her hijab (traditional female Muslim attire) shell be killed. She has success, but the murky social and political waters make it a tough course to navigate. How director Barry Levinson, who has made some great movies, including Rain Man (for which he won an Oscar), completely misses the larger point here is mind-boggling. From the time they are babies, girls in the United States are told they can be anything they want to be when they grow up. In Afghanistan under Islamic law, its the exact opposite. Thus Salima is publicly shamed, but privately people are voting for her in droves, meaning theres something about the Afghani community that suggests it is OK with women singing on television. Frustratingly, this is never explained. One or two sentences on whos voting for Salima and why wouldve gone a long way. Rock The Kasbah also makes you wonder who is going to be interested in seeing it. Will American audiences invest in a scumbag shyster played by Mr. Murray and a Muslim teenager facing a kind of oppression that American women have never felt? OK, the soundtrack has notable pop music but so does iTunes. The disparate storylines go in tangential directions that Mr. Levinson hardly bothers to connect by films end. So many reasons to stay away from this Kasbah, and not one compelling reason to go. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Setara Hussainzada, who was one of two female nalists on the real Afghan Star in 2007, inspired the premise. She didnt win the competition, but she was publicly shamed and threatened.

Sarah is given the impossible task of creating a list to fix the problem of racial discord. First on her list: Stop being stupid. While Sarah initially comes across as the voice of reason within the play, she herself harbors questionable attitudes. She has a monologue where she says some things that are rather disturbing, the director says. Ms. Villarreal adds, Sarah spent so much of her life trying to understand black people. She came to realize how grotesque the concept of studying people is, yet she cant find an alternative to facilitate relating to them. Ultimately, Spinning Int o Butte r is less about overt displays of racism and more about the subtler ways that perceptions of race manifest within our everyday lives. Ms. Segreto identifies the theme of the play as white guilt. The concept has its foundations in the idea that white Americans should feel a collective responsibility for slavery and other racist actions perpetrated by their ancestors. But it may also force a critical examination of the way existing power structures are set up to benefit white people, often at the expense of people of color. This can cause confusion, hypersensitivity in regards to the way issues of race should be addressed, and also resentment. All three are at play within Spinning Into Butter. Sarah is well aware of the social and historical circumstances that have led to racial inequity within this country, and she knows that she does not stand outside of them. She has to come to terms with whats going on inside of her, Ms. Segreto says. People have prejudices, they have biases, and they operate on them whether its conscious or not. Ms. Villarreal has a slightly different take. I think the play is about fear, she says. Every character in it seems to be afraid of something change, discovery, rejection, growth, accusations, judgment, failure, being misunderstood many things. It is this richness in motivation that makes the play so relatable. During the plays initial run at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, Variety critic Chris Jones called Spinning Into Butter a searing and gutsy exploration of white, liberal racism on an East Coast college campus. More than 15 years later, the play remains timely and the issues it deals with remain emotionally charged, precisely because they might force audience members to confront aspects of themselves they might not like. Anticipating some controversy surrounding the play, The Naples Players has arranged a talkback with the director and members of the cast for Sunday, Nov. 15, following the 2 p.m. matinee performance. I think everyones anticipating that there will be some kind of response to this, positive or negative, Ms. Segreto says. And in the directors opinion, that is a good thing: I want them to react.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 A&E WEEK OF OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015 KOVEL: ANTIQUESBuster Browns been around a while BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELBuster Brown first appeared in a comic strip in 1902. He and his dog, Tige, were characters in the very popular strip, but they became even more famous as a trademark for many products. The creator of the strip, Richard F. Outcault, went to the 1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair and sold the rights to use his cartoon characters to about 200 companies. Three companies still use the character and the name: Brown Shoe Company, Buster Brown Apparel, Inc. and Gateway Hosiery, makers of Buster Brown socks. There was a Broadway show featuring Buster Brown in 1905. Although the strip was discontinued in 1920, there were movies with live actors from 1925 to 1929. Then Buster went on to sponsor a radio show from 1943 to 1955 and a TV show from 1950 to 1956. He was given a more up-to-date look for his advertising in the 1980s and s, but the hat and Tige remained. Collectors want all sorts of memorabilia from toys and games to advertising signs. A vintage 9 -inch-high Buster Brown die-cut tin sign was sold at a Maine auction for $1,778 in June 2015. It was made with a curved bottom so it would rock on the store counter and attract attention. Q: I have a tea infuser marked on the edge Tiffany and Co 20085 Makers 25884 Sterling B25 1008 7K. What is it worth? A: Tiffany & Co. tea infusers sell for about $100. The company started in 1837 when Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young opened a stationery and fancy goods store. The company began making silver hollowware in 1851 and was the first American company to adopt the British silver standard, .925 parts of silver out of 1,000 parts. It became famous for its silver hollowware and flatware and also for jewelry. When Charles Lewis Tiffany died in 1902, his son Louis Comfort Tiffany became the companys first art director. He started his own business and made stained glass, lamps and many types of art glass. Tiffany & Co.s flagship store is on Fifth Avenue in New York. Q: A few months ago your column included a picture of a bookcase-cabinet that sold for more than $5,000. We have a similar one in black walnut with a lot more detailing on it that belonged to my mother-in-law and father-in-law, but they always called it a secretary. What is the difference? A: A secretary is a desk with a bookcase top. Most of them have slant-front desks with drawers below. The auction house described the piece in our column as a bookcase and cabinet. It had a drop-front that looked like a drawer but opened up and became the desktop. The drawers below were closed off by doors, similar to a cabinet. Q: We inherited a C19 Chippendale Edison Diamond Disc phonograph. Its in excellent condition and has a full rack of records in the cabinet. We also have the key that locks the top lid and bottom door. We dont want to sell it, but are wondering what its worth. A: Although Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, his company was one of the last to switch from cylinder recordings to disc records. The first Buster Brown and Tige have been the faces in ads for Buster Brown shoes since 1904. This tin sign, made to rock on a store counter, auctioned for $1,778 in 2015.

Edison Diamond Disc phonograph, so named because it had a diamond stylus, was made in 1912. Several models were made until 1927. There are not a lot of collectors for these. In excellent condition its worth about $300. Q: Wed like some information about Lorraine Sarreguemines pottery. We have many pieces and are trying to decide whether to sell them or buy more to complete the set. A: Porcelain was made in Sarreguemines, Lorraine, France, beginning about 1775. Transfer-printed wares and majolica were made in the 19th century. The 19th-century pieces, most often found today, usually have colorful transfer-printed decorations showing peasants in local costumes. Used dinnerware is difficult to sell. Some resale shops wont even take it. If you decide to add to your set, you should look online for a china-matching service. Q: What is an antique music box in excellent running condition worth? Its marked inside Jacots Safety Check, Patented April 10, 1883 and Sept. 22, 1886. It plays eight songs and is 22 inches wide by 7 inches high. A: Jacot and Sons was an importer in New York City that held patents for a device that checked the music box cylinder and kept it from spinning too fast and damaging the pins and teeth of the combs. Most of the boxes with Jacots Safety Checks were made by Mermod Freres of Ste. Croix, Switzerland. In working condition it could sell for as much as $900. Q: I went to an estate sale that had a great collection of vintage lipstick tubes. These were ornate lipstick tubes, even mini works of art in gold, silver, wood, bakelite, celluloid, and enamel. There were at least 250 of them. Each tube had a piece of paper rolled inside with the date it was purchased, from the 1920s through the 1940s. I bought several tubes but regret not buying the lot. Was there any monetary value to this collection? A: A collection is worth about 25 percent more than the total value of the individual tubes. The lipstick tubes you bought are not worth what you paid even if they are no longer part of a large collection. Lipstick tubes by famous designers in 18-carat gold or precious jewels sometimes sell for several thousand dollars. A Van Cleef & Arpels 18K gold ladies lipstick tube case sold recently for $2,460. Ordinary tubes by an unknown maker sell for $5 or less. Some special tubes for popular brands also are popular. Tip: An early knife with a pointed end was used to get food to your mouth. Forks were invented in the 18th century and after that table knife ends were rounded. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Brave Lola was inspired by the photo of the tunnel seen here. For more information on the Sanibel Island Writers Conference, visit fgcu.edu/ siwc. Thanks for writing, and good luck. Brave LolaBy Olivia Orth, Cape CoralThe small farm was Lolas entire world. Her parents spent each day from morning until night tending their modest crop, hunting rabbits and small deer, and collecting water from the creek to restore their fields and bodies. Meeting the small familys basic daily needs took every ounce of energy and resourcefulness they had. By age 8, Lola had explored every nook and cranny of the small farm and was finally allowed to venture a little way into the wilderness, an outer circle she came to know intimately. She knew where and when to find the best wild blackberries, where the creek was shallow and easy to cross, and how to make her way safely through the thick palmetto undergrowth with minimal scrapes and bruises. She knew the terrain so well she could reach the creek to fetch fresh cool water in the dark of night, a task she bravely faced the night Mother and Father had fevers. When they recovered they praised her for her courage, uttering words that would not only leave her glowing for days. Those words were now etched on her heart. Travel was a luxury the family could never afford. Lolas parents had neither time nor money, and Lola wasnt even sure they contemplated such things. Yet she did. Whenever a train whistle awakened her in the night she would lay sleepless for hours imaging the people aboard as she carefully considered their choice to speed past her little world. Were they escaping from something frightening or chasing something wonderful? Would they ever return home again? The whistle would scream, flying across the night air to her ear, and then abruptly fade to a whisper as the train sped into the dark tunnel that pierced the mountainside. She pondered what was beyond that tunnel casually at first, but night after night the whistle awoke something within her. It was a curiosity she had never known before, and it grew at an overwhelming rate. One day, sleepless yet more energized than ever, she decided to chase this new feeling. When day broke, she filled her belly with milk and cornbread, the standard breakfast on the farm. Mother and Father pressed into their days work, gathering eggs to sell neighbors and hoeing a long new row of corn. When Lola was certain they were lost in their work and wouldnt ask questions, she filled a pail with dried beef, a boiled egg and some blackberry preserve her mother had canned that summer. The canned blackberries reminded her the nights were getting cooler so she stuffed her tattered sweater into the bucket as well and skipped out the door and into the woods. Anyone would have guessed she was on her way to a picnic, but she knew better. Her daring spirit soared with delight. However, as she walked the miles toward the train tunnel probing questions began to occupy her thoughts. The words What if met new neighbors, and transformed her ponderings into doubts. Soon fear creeped in and took hold of her young heart. It wasnt pure fear, like the time she spotted a rattlesnake under a palmetto just as she stepped into its domain. It was a nagging fear, crippled with shame and confusion. Throughout her journey, fresh questions loomed with no answers, and they very quickly multiplied as the tunnel came into view. She could barely make out a speck of light in the distance where the tunnel ended and knew it was very long, but how long? How long would it take to reach her goal, to gaze upon the other side of the mountain? What was lurking there in the dark, waiting to meet her on the journey? Her knees weakened and she crumpled cross legged in the soft grass speckled with sharp shards of rock, as that last question rose to the surface of her consciousness like an alligator stalking his prey. She imagined all the possible answers with dismay. Had she really just taken the longest journey of her young life to stop here at the brink? She hoped not but somehow her legs wouldnt unfold Live Maine Lobsters(UP TO 1 LBS.)$9.99/LB.SAVINGS OF $3/LB.Must present coupon. While supplies last. Good through 11/5/15.

Her body refused to respond to her minds urgent request to enter the tunnel and collect the answers to every question crowding her thoughts. She tried to find comfort in the familiar things all around her. These rocks piled at either side of the tunnel looked just like the ones in the creek she told herself. They were the same ones she climbed upon while hunting crawfish. Those numbers posted above the tunnel were as puzzling as the ones Mother and Father scrolled on handmade IOUs to neighbors during the barren months of winter. Yet somehow they always pulled through, and her faith flutter ed at the association. However, Mother and Father were not here to comfort her with a blanket round her shoulders and a tight hug now, and her comparisons didnt entirely raise her confidence. There was no comfort in staring at the mouth of this dark passage either. She tried glaring into its depths instead, but the senseless void didnt move or whisper a single answer to ease her trepidation. Lola desperately wanted to make sense of the blank space between her home and her destination, but that was useless. She knew nothing of the remaining path between here and there. Until she saw something in it. Just a flicker, at the other end of the tunnel. It startled her because she didnt expect to actually glimpse anything in that small sliver of light that promised to satisfy her curiosity, until she reached it. What was it? The addition of yet another question should have rattled her to the core, but this question bolstered her desire to find answers to them all. She fixed her eyes intently on the other end of the tunnel, but to her surprise the answer appeared out of the darkness on her side of the tunnel, just a few feet from her paralyzed stance. It was a swallowtail butterfly just like the ones she played with in the fields of her parents farm, back when she was too small to stay behind in the house or venture beyond the farms borders. It instantly evoked memories of a more tender age, before the ambition to explore had planted its tiny seed in her soul. Then, another butterfly memory surfaced, of the morning she fetched yet more cool water for her ailing parents. She was tired and worried for them as she dipped the pail into the lifesaving stream, but when she glimpsed a swallowtail on a flower by the waters edge a wellspring of gratitude burst forth. Just hours before, she had been at that creek trembling in the dark, barely able to see at all, and she immediately thanked the butterfly for reminding her with its vibrant colors that they had made it through the night safely. Hope arose that she might never have to make a night visit to the creek again. Her heart leapt at that memory because thats exactly what happened. Their fevers had broken, and as their praise filled her ears the words set an indelible imprint upon her heart. The words You are brave floated across her mind as she followed this new butterflys pa th along the rocks and toward the richness of the forest. Just like that, she was her own again, and her feet were under her, lifting her body as swiftly as the swallowtail had lifted her spirit. The questions were still there, floating at the edge of her consciousness, but as she entered the unknown she knew she would soon have the answers.

Not me! After spending the day putting our life in order and herding kids away from newly cleaned spaces, I was not willing to sacrifice all that spent elbow grease to mess up my briefly pristine kitchen. Not to mention, I wanted out of the house. LAppetito is one of those wonderful pizza joints that offer a full menu of casual and delicious Italian fare, so while the kids got their cheese and pasta fixes, we grownups enjoyed sharing a traditional dish with a little twist: Sphingioni Pizza. This pie consists of marinara sauce, sliced tomato, ricotta, spinach and toasted breadcrumbs. You would be shocked at the way the humble addition of crunchy crumbs can transform standard pizza flavors. We ate some and took the rest home, which made for superb midnight snacking that same night. One more thing: LAppetito has the most sinfully delicious tirimisu that is not to be missed. The sweetened marscapone is so fluffy and indulgent I can never pass it up. The limoncello marscapone mousse cake is also intriguing, but Im so devoted to the tirimisu that I cant sacrifice it to try something new. Someone else, please order it and report back.

Serious flavor.@ Happening agavenaples /AgaveNaples AgaveNaples NaplesAgave # The perfect complement to our big flavors. VINO No tricks, just treatsOne of the perks that comes with being a wine writer and educator is the so-called trade tasting. This is when a wine and spirits distributor invites clients such as restaurant and club owners and food and beverage managers to sample the companys selection of wines and spirits. Every once in a while theyre kind enough to let me in. Recently, I was admitted to a trade tasting held by Opici Family Distributing. Contrary to what you might think, these trade events are conducted in a very decorous and professional manner. There is a lot of sipping, but also a lot of spitting, because after tasting 40 or 50 wines, one is barely able to tell the whites from the reds, or even walk unassisted. At the same time, another winery sent me a sample of a new wine and mentioned that I may want to review it for my Halloween wine column. Well, the idea of what wines to drink on Halloween was pretty far from my mind, but then I started thinking about it. After all, adults have honed in on what is basically a kids holiday and made it their own. So if were going to tell our friends to dress funny and come over to the house, what should we be serving? Being in costume generally increases the level of hilarity and social interaction at such a gathering, and since the mood is light, perhaps some of the beverages should be light as well. At the Opici tasting, I was able to try some attractive examples of wines that would add to the general mood of a Halloween evening and can be enjoyed in between going to the door every five minutes to give candy to children. My first recommendation is the sample I received from my friend Janel Lubanski, who represents a relatively new winery called Leviathan. The Leviathan 2012 Red is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet Franc, merlot and syrah. Winemaker Andy Erickson, who makes some of the biggest single-vineyard cabernets in Napa Valley, decided to make his own wine a combination of grapes from the vineyards he owns with Annie Favia. To my mind, if youre going to name a wine after a monstrous biblical sea creature, the flavors better live up to the title. They do. Its a big wine, dark purple and opaque in the glass, with aromas and flavors of black fruit, smoke, cedar, blackberry jam and a super-long finish. WW 95-96 As I mentioned before, the Opici tasting introduced me to several new wines. While I dont have the space to review each on in detail, Ive listed those that I enjoyed the most. When you sip 50 wines in an afternoon, the ones you remember are the ones you go out and buy. They should be available locally. Prices are approximate. Berres Impulse Riesling ($15) Clos Henri Petit Clos Sauvignon Blanc ($20) Henri Bourgeois La Cote Monts Damnes Sancerre ($32) The Crusher Petite Sirah & The Crusher Beet Ranch Red ($15) Don & Sons Signature Pinot Noir ($25) Fattoria di Magliano Poggio Bestiale IGT ($55) To elevate the festivities even more, try some sparkling whites like Canard-Duchene Brut Charles VII at around $56, or the Dourthe Grand Barrail Lamarzelle FigeacAsk the Wine WhispererWhats the difference between New World and Old World? Ken C., Parkland Fla.The first difference is location. Socalled Old World wines come from France, Spain, Germany and Italy. New world wines are from North and South America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The second difference is the emphasis on flavors. New world wines are all about the fruit, which is why you see the name of the grape listed on the label. In the old world, theyre very concerned about the place where the grapes are grown, and the particular qualities those places impart to the wines. Thus, the label may say Sancerre, and we have to know that Sancerre is a village in the Loire Valley and the wine is actually sauvignon blanc. Keep in mind that where a wine comes from can be a good indicator of the style. A California cabernet may be heavier and more fruity than one from Bordeaux, which emphasizes earthy flavors and acidity. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 CUISINE Figs still honors the best of Mediterranean cuisinesOne of the downsides to having to seek out new restaurants to experience each week is that it leaves little opportunity for revisiting old favorites. So, when dinner plans in Bonita Springs fell through unexpectedly last week, I eagerly headed to Figs Grille hoping to recapture the rapture of an evening nearly four years ago that I had never had the chance to repeat. Based on that memorable meal, and the impeccable standards of chef-owner Sam Tadros, I was confident we wouldnt be disappointed. Still, you never know what four years will do to a restaurant, so a revisit was certainly merited. It was gratifying to find that Figs upholds the same high level of quality in food and service. Even as many area restaurants cut corners to survive the last lean weeks before seasonal residents and visitors once again fill the dining rooms and coffers, Figs still delivers a luxurious dining experience. Time has taken no toll either on the plush dining room, with its beautiful wall tapestries, Moroccan-style lamps and rich palette of garnet and gold. Subdued guitar music murmured in the background as we settled in at a white linen-topped table. Its so easy to forget youre dining in a shopping and office plaza rather than some exotic Mediterranean locale. Warm bread with fresh-tasting ovendried tomato spread was served along with our drinks: a ruby-hued Italian martini laced with Campari ($8.50) and a glass of Antigal Malbec ($9). Figs offers an array of cold and hot appetizers, including a mezze platter with hummus, baba ganoush and cacik, a Turkish dip of yogurt and cucumbers. I enjoyed that on my last visit, so this time we opted for grilled calamari and fried shrimp for starters (each $10.95). The half-dozen long tubes of squid were charred just enough to appeal to the eye and the taste buds while remaining tender enough not to challenge the knife. Marinated in olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs, the calamari was served over arugula with a lemony balsamic vinaigrette a healthier alternative to the batter-heavy fried squid served, well, everywhere these days. And even though the shrimp were fried, they were so lightly dusted that the breading was barely detectable. It simply added a nice crust to the exterior of the large, succulent shrimp. We scooped them up along with the bits of figs, mandarin orange-red onion relish and soy ginger glaze that complemented this delicious plate. Our server whisked away the dishes with the same quiet efficiency she demonstrated all night. Chef Tadros, visibly engaged throughout the dining room, has done a fine job of training the staff by example. Where to go for the main course? The far-reaching destinations include Italy (cioppino), Morocco (chicken or vegetable tagine) and the Middle East (shrimp or chicken kebabs). Figs truly honors the breadth of authentic Mediterranean flavors and techniques. Its unusual when I can be tempted away from lamb at a Mediterranean restaurant, but the roasted duck ($27.50) beckoned. The skin was shatteringly crisp, while the meat underneath was juicy and tender. Fig chutney and port wine sauce gave the duck a fruity flourish. A breast would have sufficed, especially with creamy rosemary potato gratin and sauted vegetables on the side, but a quarter of the bird was served enough to take home for another meal. One of the evenings specials proved to be a highlight of our meal: miso-marinated black cod ($27.95). Also known as sablefish, this type of cod is prized for its thickgrained flesh loaded with more healthy omega-3 oils than even salmon. Chef Tadros does right by this premium fish, bronzing the exterior while retaining the natural juices. It was garnished with pickled ginger, an unexpected and tasty touch, and laced with a lightly sweet anisette-tinged beurre blanc that proved a heavenly pairing for the fish. A saut of spinach, tomatoes and white beans and a crusty Parmesan-angel hair pasta cake were delicious accompaniments. After such abundant pleasures, some might consider refraining from dessert. Its my duty to tell you youll be missing out on a lush chocolate marquise drizzled with crme anglaise ($6.95). Kind of a cross between mousse and fudge, it managed to be rich but not oversweet. For a lighter finish, the coconut flan ($5) is loaded with coconut flavor but creamier than the typical Spanish custard. Im certain that Figs will soon be filling up with discerning diners back for another winter season. Happily, circumstances allowed me to enjoy this trip down memorable-meal lane without having to compete with them for a table. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Figs Grille>> Hours: 4:30-9 p.m. daily >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $6.50-$18.95; entrees, $17.95-$34.95 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Specialties of the house: Mediterranean >> Volume: Low >> Parking: Plaza lot >> Website: gsgrille.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 25987 S.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDASPECIAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 4, 2015Hidden Harbor is an amazing new Gulf-access community in South Fort Myers that was recently named the Community of the Year by the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA). This weekend Stock is hosting a Fall Grand Opening at the community. On Saturday & Sunday October 31st and November 1st from 12:00 4:00 each day guests are welcome to tour the community and view four furnished models. There will be refreshments. It is all about the water at Hidden Harbor! said Claudine Lger-Wetzel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Stock Development. Private pools, a clubhouse pool, a harbor and Estero Bay leading to the Gulf of Mexico. For a limited time, Stock Development is offering homebuyers at Hidden Harbor a free pool valued at up to $50,000 with each new home. Hidden Harbor is an exclusive, amenityrich boating community nestled between Naples and Fort Myers. Within this 55-acre retreat, Stock Signature Homes has made the boating lifestyle a reality with 76 coastal contemporary estate homes, most of which provide access to the Gulf of Mexico by way of the Ten Mile Canal and Estero Bay. We were thrilled that the BIA committee recognized Hidden Harbor as the Community of the Year just months after it has been released for sale, said Lger-Wetzel. It is a spectacular luxury community and one of the west coasts last-remaining waterfront sanctuaries. Captivating water views, private boat slips, world-class fishing, an impressive residents-only clubhouse with a recreation lawn, fitness center, and secluded resort pool and fire pit all combine for a lifestyle that is the perfect balance of water, nature and luxury. The 2015 BIA Industry Awards recognizes and celebrates excellence in the residential and commercial building industries of Southwest Florida. The BIA Industry Awards, the most prestigious and unique local building industry honors, are awarded each year to members who have achieved an outstanding level of success and professionalism in residential design, new home sales and marketing, as well as commercial building, planning and design. Hidden Harbor residents have an amazing lifestyle at their fingertips. They may boat, kayak and canoe directly from their personal boat dock. The private harbor is a sport fishermans paradise and a haven for manatees and provides access to The Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail, a 190-mile marked canoe and kayak trail that meanders through the coastal waters and inland tributaries of Lee County, Florida. The backwaters of Estero Bay and the surrounding creeks are filled with snook, trout, redfish, tarpon, sheepshead, sharks, snapper, jacks and black drum and the canal from Hidden Harbor ranges anywhere from 2-3 feet to 6-8 feet, depending on the tide and is navigable by pontoon, bay, deck, or flats boat. Because of the early interest, Stock has purchased a pontoon so prospective homebuyers can tour the serene waters and experience the fish and wildlife that is part of the Hidden Harbor lifestyle. Four new furnished models are open the Biscayne, Sanibel, Amelia and the Useppa, which recently earned a Sand Dollar Award from the Collier Building Industry Association for Product Design. The models were chosen from a total of nine floorplans that are offered. These three and four bedroom homes feature from 2,384 to more than 3,000 square feet of living area. All of the homesites are located just a short stroll from the community clubhouse, which will be situated on a premium waterfront site at the entrance to the harbor. The clubhouse is scheduled to begin construction later this year. The 4,484 square foot clubhouse will be a wonderful amenity for residents to enjoy, said Stock. They will be able to work out, relax by the resort style pool or reserve the facility for functions with family and friends. The interior of the clubhouse fitness center will be equipped with new stateof-the art equipment, a comfortably furnished lounge area and a club room will be available for social events. Outside will be a resort style pool with a fire pit, a barbeque area and a beautifully furnished sundeck. There will also be a kayak launch and open green space to enjoy the beautiful Southwest Florida weather. It will feature waterfront views from two sides. Hidden Harbor also offers convenient access to Southwest Floridas finest beaches on Sanibel Island or Fort Myers Beach via road or boat.

Its been a long time since construction began on a major residential highrise building in Southwest Florida. Eight years to be exact. But with Kalea Bay thats all changed as construction cranes, cement trucks and other pieces of heavy-duty equipment are onsite and along with the construction crews working hard to make history. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, has 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. According to Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing, sales have been phenomenal. Not only have we had tremendous initial interest on the project, but we have exceeded our sales projections for the summer, she said. Due to our sales velocity, we recently started vertical construction on the first tower, Wilson added. By late October, our future residents and passers-by will be able to see evidence of our first floor. Because were gearing up for the start of construction on our clubhouse and related amenities, theyll be able to enjoy it all upon move in. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,280 square feet under air and 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5 are three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half bath plans with 3,280 square feet under air and 3,835 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,280 square feet under air and 3,921 total square feet. With 20 stories of living available at Kalea Bay and the areas first roof-top pool and amenity center, residents will revel in spectacular gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into the condominium, nine-foot high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens feature Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and counter-height oversized island. The master bedroom has an oversized walk-in closet and the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, Downsview luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Additional features include floor-toceiling windows and doors, high-tech wiring, fully-equipped laundry rooms and wide lanais with transparent glass rails. Residents, no matter which floor they choose, will be able to enjoy views of the Gulf of Mexico and nature preserve, stated Wilson. Thats because the buildings amenities are located on the roof. They include a fitness center, sky lounge and incredible rooftop pool. The residents and their guests will have quite a view from the towers roof. Not only will they see the Gulf of Mexico, but two of the best beaches in the country. They include, Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which is ranked #9. The first residential tower is scheduled to be completed in Summer 2017. Although every future resident is looking forward to moving into their new home, one in particular just might be more excited then the rest. That future resident is John Lodge, a legendary member of The Moody Blues. I have two very good reasons for buying a home in the Naples area, explained Lodge. My son and grandson live here. Lodge went on to say he found himself spending more and more time in Southwest Florida and it just made sense to find a place to hang his hat and his bass guitar. The best aspects of Naples, besides golf, are the sunsets and weather, said Lodge. My wife Kirsten and I really wanted a place where we could sit and enjoy the setting sun on a nightly basis. The views of the Gulf from Kalea Bay are incredible and we love the fact the tower has a rooftop pool. Lodge has another connection to the Naples area one he is very proud of. Although recorded at various locations, Lodges new solo album, 0,000 Light Years Ago, only his second solo album of his career, was completed at The Mix Factory in Naples. It was the first time Lodge worked from a studio in the Sunshine State. Lodge concluded, Kirsten and I are excited to start spending more time in the Naples area in the future. But for the meantime, Im excited to share my album with my fans and continue touring with The Moody Blues. In addition to the first towers rooftop amenities, Kalea Bay will also have a first-class clubhouse area which surely will be the recreational and social center of the community. The main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, said Wilson. It will include a clubhouse with three individual pools, a pool deck bar, an indoor/ outdoor restaurant, a snack bar and an Internet cafe. But thats not all. Nearby will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted tennis courts and 24 guest suites. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse area, to a designated Gulf beach. For more information regarding Kaley Bay visit the award-winning, onsite sales center. It is located at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples.
