www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 COMMENTARY The bona fide red, white and blueOn at least two distinct occasions in the history of the United States, the nation found itself equipped to take over the world. The first occurred beginning in April of 1865, at the end of the Civil War. Never in history had so much military power been amassed together with so much experience and effective ability as President Abraham Lincolns. He wielded that power only near the end of his life. The second occasion occurred at the end of World War II, when an Army general of such magnitude as George Patton suggested we take advantage of our muscle to put down the Soviets. He wanted to wield the Third Army right down their throats, along with everything else we had. That period of unmatched American power arguably stretched into the early 1950s, when Gen. Douglas MacArthur advocated nuking the Chinese. At the time, the Chinese were supporting the North Korean effort to swallow the south. They were belligerent Communists, just like the Soviets. But after that suggestion, Gen. MacArthur (a belligerent democratist) found himself not only in the Korean War but right back out of it, relieved of duty by a stubby, hot-tempered civilian from Missouri with no West Point education and only aging memories of his own service more than 30 years earlier in World War I President Harry Truman. Lincoln and Truman were both hardnosed pragmatists. As presidents, each might well have been asked to consider a variety of muscular military options. Mexico and Canada, for example, could have been ours for the taking in 1865. Germany both east and west, along with Eastern Europe and Russia, not to mention China, could have been ours for the taking beginning in 1945 or But Lincoln and Truman understood something some other Americans didnt and still may not: The greatest American weapon of all the greatest strength we had and still have lies not in our sophisticated killing tools or our ferocious ability to employ them and to wage war. Instead, it lies in our ferocious ability to employ and wage peace to play the role of Samaritan or capitalist, not conqueror, even when were both or all. Lincolns greatest general, Ulysses Grant, started the peace war on Lincolns behalf beginning at Appomattox. After Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia on April 9, Gen. Grant allowed each man to walk away with his rifle (and a mule or horse if he had one). Truman, meanwhile, waged peace with the immense Marshall plan, providing aid to our former enemies, restoring their economies, and ending their suffering almost on the spot. So in my book, Lincoln and Truman are two of our greatest patriots. As for Lincoln, no other wars have occurred between Americans. And now, 150 years later, societal discrimination based on race is gone. (Yes, it flares up from time to time in individuals, as recent events suggest.) As for Truman, more than 65 years of massive peace has followed World War II, a peace whose aberrations Korea, Vietnam and possibly Iraq have not become world wars and probably should not have occurred at all. They were errors but patriotism does not exclude errors, any more than living or loving does. Patriotism merely excludes the defending of errors out of pride, vanity or jingoism. But what does patriotism include? Leftists, rightists and centrists in America probably agree at least on this: that patriotism requires love, allegiance and defense of country. How we define those qualities, however, varies considerably. Is the United States a geographic location or is it a set of values or both? Does patriotism exclude criticism? Or on the contrary does it require criticism and selfinspection? Whatever it is, we know that any grand plans or philosophies like those of Lincolns or Trumans always come down to individuals on the ground, men and women who get dirty, damaged or dead being patriots. I was reminded of all this last week when I finally met the writer and author Robert Hilliard, now a month or so shy of his 87th birthday. Dr. Hilliard (he earned a doctorate from Columbia University 14 years after World War II) came from New York City to fight as a teenager at the Battle of the Bulge, from Dec. 16, 1944 to Jan. 25, 1945. He survived, unlike 19,000 other young Americans who were alive when that fiveweek horror kicked off. By April, he had been wounded, shipped out and hospitalized in Paris, where he found himself on April 12, 1945, when President Franklin Roosevelt died. In uniform that day, Pvt. Hilliard was surprised and moved by French citizens, many of them crying, who approached and hugged or kissed him, offering consolation for the loss of his president. Then he rode back to his barracks. What moved him the most, he recalled, was the sight of 12 very tough combat veterans, most of them older than him and all of them recuperating from battle wounds, who werent playing cards. They werent shining their boots. They werent writing love letters home, or eating or drinking. Instead, they were crying, too. From Paris, he joined a unit ordered to help disarm the Germans all of which, by that time, would have qualified him as a bona fide American patriot. But Pvt. Hilliard wasnt through being a patriot. Between April and late fall with his friend, Pvt. Ed Herman, he helped save about 10,000 Jewish survivors of the Holocaust not from Germans but from Americans who neglected them, cutting off the food and medicine they needed unless they were recompensed with favors. He stopped it by writing a letter home with 600 copies for all the friends and families he and his pals could contact begging for food and supplies. President Truman ultimately saw the letter, investigated and ended the abuse. It amounts to this: Two patriots waging peace Pvt. Hilliard and President Truman did what Americans do at their best. They put down the prejudices or callous indifference of their own people, and painted tolerance and charity in red, white and blue.

His day came at the signature Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Iowa. Hillary Clinton hit the Vermont senator for saying in the first Democratic debate that all the shouting in the world wouldnt keep guns out of the wrong hands. According to Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Sanders had directed a notoriously sexist insult at her although not one of the 15 million people watching at the time had noticed it. I havent been shouting, Mrs. Clinton intoned, but sometimes when a woman speaks out, some people think its shouting. What Mrs. Clintons plaint lacked in plausibility, it made up for in bad faith. Shouting has not typically been considered a loaded term. Mr. Sanders didnt say screeching. He didnt say nagging. In fact, he had been saying that shouting is ineffectual in the gun debate long before he was entangled in an argument about gun control with Hillary Clinton. Nonetheless, Mr. Sanders felt compelled on the CNN show State of the Union to tout his record on womens issues and say, I think what the secretary is doing there is taking words and misapplying them. But there he goes again suggesting that women arent capable of correctly applying words. Mr. Sanders should get used to it. If he remains a threat to Mrs. Clinton in the early states, hell be deemed a cross between Archie Bunker and Andrew Dice Clay. Already, the left-wing publication Salon ran a headline urging on the sisterhood: Lets storm the Sanders heman women-haters club. If Hillary is willing to use this tack against Mr. Sanders, a down-the-line supporter of the feminist policy agenda, just wait until she gets into a race with Donald Trump, Ted Cruz or any other Republican. No microaggression will be too micro to try to use to win a news cycle. Hillary has already broadcast that shes going to wield her gender as an all-purpose argument for her candidacy. At the Democratic debate, she said shes an outsider because shes a woman. She said she wouldnt simply be the third term of Barack Obama because shes a woman. Hillary clearly doesnt want anyone to be mistaken about her gender. Hillary will need to do all she can to motivate women voters to make up for what may well be a historic poor showing among men. In the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, her favorable rating among white men was an abysmal 26 percent. Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway says there are three positive attributes that voters tend to attribute to women candidates: They are warm and understanding; they are new and fresh; they are honest. Hillary, a partisan warrior whos been on the national stage for decades, usually trailed by an ethical cloud, is an imperfect vessel for all of those qualities. Which is why shell use her gender as a means of attack as much as a selling point. In Iowa, she defended playing the gender card, saying if thats what its called when you stand up for womens rights, then deal me in. Actually, shell be doing the dealing, and it will be from the bottom of the deck. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION a p U i t m rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly GUEST COMMENTARYTreating opioid abuse with a clinical, educational approach BY BRENDA J. ILIFF, M.A., Executive director, Hazelden in NaplesI appreciated reading your recent report Heroin Use on the Rise (Oct. 15, 2015) and wanted to share with readers what we are experiencing at Hazelden in Naples, a nonprofit addiction treatment provider. We have witnessed firsthand in Southwest Florida and at our 15 other locations across the country a dramatic escalation in the number of patients addicted to heroin and prescription painkillers. Heroin and prescription pain pills come from the same class of drugs, called opioids. The disturbing upward trend in addiction to those powerful drugs has resulted in enormous human and financial costs to individuals, families and communities. In fact, there are now more accidental deaths in this country from overdoses than there are from car accidents. Our experience is consistent with a wave of sobering federal statistics that reveal a public health crisis that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls the worst drug addiction epidemic in U.S. history. The CDC reports that prescription painkiller overdoses more than quadrupled in the U.S. from 1999 to 2011, and heroin overdoses more than doubled, leading to about a half million emergency department visits in 2010 alone. While the newest CDC data shows prescription drug deaths dipping slightly in 2012, heroin deaths shot up even more. And there are an average of 110 overdose deaths per day in America and more than half of those involving opioids, according to the CDC. Not surprisingly, opioid use disorders are also on the rise. Data compiled by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in 2012 showed treatment systems nationwide reporting a 500 percent increase in admissions for prescription drug disorders since 2001. All told, the National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates 2.6 million Americans had an opioid addiction in 2012. Millions more, while not addicted, also reported nonmedical use of prescription painkillers, according to the CDC. These alarming increases in overdose deaths, addiction and misuse parallel, as one might suspect, a skyrocketing rate of opioid prescriptions and use. At the center of this problem is overprescribing. The CDC says prescriptions for opioid painkillers, or analgesics, have tripled in the past two decades. In 2012, 259 million opioid prescriptions were written, enough for every American adult to have a bottle of pills. Today, despite having only 4.6 percent of the worlds population, the U.S. consumes 80 percent of the worlds supply of painkillers, according to the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. Locally, Drug Free Collier is spearheading a task force to address the rise in heroin/opioid incidents throughout Collier County in partnership with the Collier County Sheriffs Office. The Collier County Sheriffs Office has identified an increasing rise in heroin sales in our community this year. Further statistics show that the use of Naloxone, a life-saving medication used by first responders to counter opioid/ heroin overdoses, has increased dramatically. During the first six months of 2015, we have seen a 61 percent increase in Naloxone use compared to the same time last year. A recent request of NCH data shows ER visits for heroin overdose increased by 225 percent. After further review of Collier County EMS data, Collier County has experienced a 71 percent increase of heroin overdose calls for service in 2015. This is all happening in our local area. At Hazelden in Naples we are using a clinical approach as well as advocating new policies to address the rise of heroin and other opioid use.Clinical approachOur treatment protocol is designed to address the grim reality that more people are becoming addicted to opioids and dying from overdose. We are seeing this with the younger population but also with the boomers and older adults. In fact, many of the overdoses in Collier County have been people 50 plus. We are particularly concerned with patients whose tolerance decreases during abstinence, causing them to easily overdose just by taking the same doses they used to take. At Hazelden in Naples, we have embraced the latest and best research that indicates certain medications may be used to improve recovery when integrated into our Twelve Step Facilitation model the foundation of a unique approach. We know by using medications we can limit the discomfort of craving and keep patients engaged in treatment longer which ultimately improves treatment success.Policy prioritiesAs the nations largest nonprofit provider of addiction prevention, treatment and recovery services, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation has a responsibility to address opportunities that could help reduce the enormous impact of opioid misuse and addiction on our communities. Some of our national priorities include education and prevention, monitoring programs and disposal programs. The time is now for educational campaigns, new treatment approaches and effective policies to help us find a better balance one that addresses opioid abuse without stigmatizing pain. It is imperative for the health of our families and the health of our communities that we take action to stem this national epidemic. For those seeking help for themselves or their loved ones here in Southwest Florida, we are just minutes away. For more information, go to HazeldenBettyFord.org/Naples.

ROOTED IN NAPLESLast call to revel in the perks of being here off-seasonWhos excited for season? ME! I know its difficult to tell from past columns, but I am just as excited about the beginning of tourist season as I am the end. Sure, theres a plague upon my house (and most everyone elses) thanks to an influx of northern viruses, but it will pass and when its over, a flurry of holiday activity will begin. I far prefer a spending Thanksgiving poolside awash in a tropical glow than huddled in an overheated dining room beside an overbearing uncle, with everyone as agitated and blustery as the bitter weather outside. As we Floridians know, insufferable relatives are so much easier to withstand when you can send them to the beach (or Disney World) for some peace. As a gentle reminder to us locals for whom extended family members signal the arrival of tourist season, I offer a brief list of things to enjoy in Naples before traffic becomes too bloated to reach them. The beach (duh) A lot of brave souls take advantage of our areas sandy real estate when its widely available during summer, but others of us think its just too dang hot and labor intensive to drag all the beach gear to the best spots. Now is the time. RUN. By December, there will be no parking spaces left for you. And although its still warm right now, the sand is no longer vitrifying into glass. Mercato Has anyone else become as dependent on Whole Foods and Ulta as I have? Maybe its just because I work across the street (excuses), but Im over there pretty often stocking up on items that appeal to my very specific tastes. Right now, its Southern Tier Pumking beer and some special hair care products. I have finally wised up to the idea that I need Amazons oneclick purchase feature after December to keep up with my now indulgent necessities. However, if you have more forethought than I do, you can still easily snag a parking spot and stock up on your essential inessentials. It will soon be impossible. If I have to endure Mercatos parking lot after this month, when it essentially becomes a bumper car arena, someone will surely have to put me down. Restaurants Local establishments have started releasing their specials, promotions and events in anticipation of all that cold, hard cash thats about to appear in their registers, but there arent a whole lot of tourists here yet. For now, locals can take advantage of a relatively peaceful meal, and all the perks that go along with star chef establishments, without waiting for hours or making reservations. Could you imagine if Osteria Tulia ran its Truffletopia event in February instead of November? Wed have riots in the streets. Very subdued, tasteful riots on Fifth Avenue South, yes, but there would be civil unrest, nonetheless. Doctors Get sick now, my Neapolitan friends and neighbors. A lot of you know Im not kidding. Accessible and timely non-emergency care all but vanishes from Collier County through winter and spring. You think your general practitioner owes you appointments? You are wrong; they owe spots to all the snowbirds who book a year in advance to maintain their blood pressure medication. They dont like moving appointments. Flu? Strep? Angry, itchy rash? The emergency room or a crowded urgent care clinic will be the only options for working people who have to get well soon so they can continue serving the people who have successfully occupied their doctors time. The Naples Zoo I love The Naples Zoo. I love it with a fiery, sentimental passion and feel so fortunate that I can take my kids to the same campus I visited when I was young. Were squeezing in a trip this weekend before the hordes of visiting grandparents show up to spend some annual quality time with their offsprings offspring. I really hope they enjoy it as much as I do, but crowds give me the willies, so well get our jollies out now since we have the luxury of visiting before it gets crazy. An uneventful commute Judging by Vanderbilt Road one morning earlier this week, this opportunity may have passed already. But the sudden fall influx of people is just a teaser; I think many of them go back home briefly before the real fun begins. Summer lulls us into submission because we become accustomed to an easy 10-15 minute commute. But its only a matter of time before a traffic snarl, an interstate interchange backed up for two miles and a criminally slow pack of Toyota Priuses all happen on the same morning and we wont make it to work on time. Enjoy your relaxed morning drive now; you dont have many left. Even though were about to lose these offseason perks, its nice living in a sunny place that lures our family and friends in the dead of winter. And its fun counting fat stacks of cash in May, right? Heres hoping we all enjoy a healthy, prosperous and quick tourist season. Cheers! Having grown up in Naples, its easy for Lindsey Nesmith to forget how cool living in Florida can be. Shes thankful for the reminders. lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 wrong. Such complaints are dismissed straightaway, as the JQC does not rule on matters of law, but rather investigates judges whose conduct appears unfit for the bench. Being told that their grievances are likened to prisoner petitions makes complainants feel they are being judged more than the judges, which raises questions: If not the JQC, then who is judging the judges? And if complaints are not public, how can the public knowledgably elect judges? Judges wont talk about the system on the record because it would violate the code of judicial conduct, which would put them in front of the JQC. Lawyers say judges should not be silenced by the JQC, that if they have the courage to speak out and say a law is unjust, they should be heard and not reprimanded, because that threatens the independence of the judiciary. JQC members hesitate to speak on the record, deferring all questions to the commission executive director, Michael Schneider, who is curt with his answers. When asked what he would say to the 743 complainants who might feel their complaints were ignored, Mr. Schneider says, Well, they werent. The secrecy shrouding the commission the JQC makes its own rules but is funded by the Legislature, complaints are confidential, the state supreme court does not oversee the JQC and cannot investigate it sure makes it seem like if you sit on the bench, you are safe behind your robe. How many mistakes do judges get to make? asks Cynthia Wheeler, a single, working mother of four who quit her second job to change the system. Ms. Wheeler lives in Belle Glade. She says the judge in her family court case broke the law from the bench and exchanged inappropriate emails with her ex-husband emails, she says, that were cut from the court record. Ms. Wheeler says the law prevents her from saying if she ever filed a complaint with the JQC, which she sees as part of the problem the commission being afraid of a developing public forum, people talking about how many complaints have been filed against whom. You would never know if a judge has five or 500 similar complaints because its confidential, Ms. Wheeler says. How many complaints are enough? Ms. Wheeler uses the analogy of a retail employee: If a cashier made an error that costs $200, three times a year, shes out. Because complaints are kept private, Ms. Wheeler says, We just accept what they say and we never think about it. Ms. Wheeler has started a petition to amend the state constitution to make complaints against judges public, regardless of findings of probable cause. Currently, proceedings are kept private until the JQC finds probable cause and files a formal complaint with the Florida Supreme Court. Ms. Wheeler says such confidentiality creates judicial corruption. Shes collecting signatures so citizens can vote. If complaints were public, Ms. Wheeler says, it would hold judges accountable and might be the only thing that could keep the process honest. Judges and lawyers on the other side of this argument say if complaints were made public a judge might earn a bad reputation when its unwarranted. Everyone who walks out of the courtroom a loser could file a complaint, complaints could pile up and the state might lose a good judge. Judges and lawyers also say that if complaints were public an attorney might not report a judge when its warranted, because if that attorney appears in front of that judge regularly, the judge may retaliate. As it stands, if the JQC does not elevate a complaint to the state supreme court, the public is supposed to trust that its baseless. The JQC is made up of 15 members: six judges, chosen by other judges; four lawyers, chosen by The Florida Bar; and five registered voters, non-lawyers, appointed by the governor. Mr. Schneider, the executive director and general counsel of the JQC, says JQC members see every complaint. Every complaint is presented to an Investigative Panel of the commission, which meets every six weeks, on average. The Investigative Panel acts as a body and by majority vote determines whether and what action to take, Mr. Schneider writes in an email. The numbers continue to puzzle Ms. Wheeler. If the JQC meets every six weeks for up to two days, which is what Ms. Wheeler says Mr. Schneider told her, JQC members would have to review 125 complaints per session, which would only allow for 10 minutes per complaint, give or take. Ms. Wheeler says 10 minutes is not enough time to review a complaint that might be 20 pages long. Do they even read complaints? she asks. The JQC process involves two panels, the investigative panel, which acts like a prosecutor, and a hearing panel, which acts like a panel of judges, hearing cases. Mr. Schneider says since most complaints come from people who are dissatisfied with rulings in their cases, like the analogous prisoner petitions, most complaints are dismissed, because the concerns expressed are an effort by the complainant to seek review decisions or rulings with which the complainant disagrees. The commission does not have jurisdiction to review decisions or rulings. Not being a part of the judicial system, the commission only has the authority to investigate claims of personal conduct, demeanor, or disability. It has no ability to intervene in a case, remove a judge from the case, or to grant any sort of remedy or relief. Complaints against cases, not judges, should go to the appellate court. The appellate court can remedy a mistake of law. The JQC does not rule on matters of law. As the JQC 2014 annual report says, If the complaint does not allege judicial misconduct, but is found to be frivolous or unfounded, the complaint goes to the commission for consideration as to whether it should be summarily dismissed. Ms. Wheeler says the report speaks negatively of complainants complainants who are not lawyers or judges those are the ones that tend to be elevated to the supreme court, she says, but the others are assumed to be frivolous or unfounded. The Office of the State Courts Administrator in Tallahassee reports that there are nearly 1,000 judges in the state. An average of more than 3.5 million cases are filed each year, so for only 750 people to file a complaint, Ms. Wheeler says, Thats not frivolous. Why are you speaking so negatively of the complainants? she asks of the commission. Its almost as if youre judging their motives more than youre judging the judges. You always fear that if you have a board that is of a mindset that most of the complaints they get dont have merit then theyre going to slip and let a lot of meritorious complaints slide through, says Professor Amy Mashburn, who teaches legal ethics and professional responsibility, among other subjects, while serving as associate dean of academic affairs at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. An academic, Ms. Mashburn sees both sides of the transparency argument as equally strong. Reiterating the argument against transparency, she says a lot of defamatory charges brought by disgruntled parties could potentially harm a judges career, because its human nature to blame the judge.

There was a legislative attempt made to check the JQC. A committee bill from the 2011 session would have allowed the Speaker of the House to see all investigative files of the JQC. The bill passed the House and Senate and was put on the 2012 ballot, where it was defeated. Gary Aubuchon, former state representative and a Cape Coral real estate broker, cosponsored the bill, but says he has no recollection of it and no curiosity to go back and look. Professor Mashburn says, That might be a middle-road solution, to give some committee or subcommittee of the Legislature the power to look at what theyre doing, but the reason why thats controversial is that the judicial branch of government is its own branch of government and oversight by another branch of government raises issues. Presently, the only other way a judge can be removed from the bench would be through impeachment by the House of Representatives, but by the time investigations get to the point of impeachment, typically the judge resigns. The last time a judge was impeached was April of 1978. It was Circuit Court Judge Samuel Smith from Lake City. It was the only case where the Senate voted to impeach, Michael Williams, communications director for the Florida House of Representatives, writes in an email. Professor Mashburn says any time an entity has prosecutorial discretion the JQC deciding whether or not to go forward against a judge that entity does not want that discretion scrutinized by the public. Why? Because one case might require more effort, proof may be difficult to dig up, whereas another case presents itself as a much easier prosecutorial task. So the JQC will make that judgment call, Ms. Mashburn says, which is within their discretion to do, but it can be uncomfortable to explain to the public. The public would like, and who wouldnt, we would like this to be a world where everybody who has a legitimate complaint against a judge can have that aired or heard in that tribunal, but in fact they dont have the resources to do that, so they have to make choices, and they dont, any more than any of us do, like having their choices second-guessed, Ms. Mashburn says. Now to frame it that way is to tell you what the counterargument is, which is that their choices, they should have to defend them and rationalize them. Ms. Mashburn was surprised to see seven judges were sanctioned by the JQC, surprised there were so many state judges publicly misbehaving. The counterargument to that would be that a judge has to do something as egregious as getting caught driving under the influence or punching a lawyer or having inappropriate Facebook exchanges with parties appearing before the bench, to be recommended for removal or discipline. Donnie Murrell, a Palm Beach County attorney who has defended judges in front of the JQC, says the numbers seven judges, 750 complaints do not mean the JQC is not doing a good job. What does the number of complaints have to do with the quality of complaints? he asks. Circling back to the secrecy of the commission, he adds, We dont know how many judges were called in for a good chewing out. There are occasions where judges are privately reprimanded, Mr. Schneider writes in his email, either with advice or admonishment, or they can be required to appear before the Investigative Panel where the Commissions concerns are conveyed to the judge. A concern some lawyers have with the JQC is that some judges, who say something like, This keeps happening in my courtroom. I see it every day. This law is not working, should not be reprimanded or told to keep their mouths shut, but should be heard by the public. Professor Mashburn says this is where two judicial canons come into conflict. When a judge speaks out, if it doesnt have the effect of being commentary on the merits of an impending case, then it would be wrong to punish the judge for doing that if the speech is directed at improving the system of the justice. On the other hand, if the judge is actually speaking out in a way that suggests that the judge cannot be impartial in certain cases, than thats a problem, because theres a very strong judicial canon that says we want the public to be able to have confidence that a judge will decide each case on the merits and be impartial and not biased, Ms. Mashburn says. So you dont want to go out against an activist judge who is trying to reform the system and reform the law itself, those are good things, but on the other hand, you dont want judges on the bench who are speaking constantly about matters in a way that makes you say, Hmm, I wonder if they can be objective in these kinds of cases? Ms. Mashburn says the public can rest assured once the judge reaches the level of the state supreme court, the supreme court has definitely adopted a low tolerance for any judicial misconduct, so at that level, judges are being judged. But as Mr. Murrell sums up, Its hard to judge judges. Every time I go into a courtroom I want to win, he says. But when I lose, it doesnt mean the judge did something wrong. Who is on the JQC?There are 15 members on the JQC. Two must be district court of appeal judges chosen by all the judges of the ve district courts. Two must be circuit court judges chosen by all the judges of the 20 judicial circuits. Two must be county court judges chosen by all the judges of the 67 county courts. Four must be registered voters who also are lawyers, chosen by the Board of Governors of The Florida Bar. The nal ve must be non-lawyers who are registered voters, chosen by the Governor.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 So in the next few weeks, Ms. Marchuck-Selengut will fly to Delray Beach in order to speak and attend the 70th anniversary of The Miracle at St. Ottilien. The free event sponsored by the Foundation for Holocaust Education Projects and the Palm Strings Orchestra will feature the re-creation of the Liberation Concert performed by Holocaust survivors at the St. Ottilien Displaced People Camp in Germany after WWII. Students from the Palm Beach Public School Strings Orchestra will be performing. Aside from the concert, the reunion will be a chance for survivors and children of survivors from the St. Ottilien displaced camp to meet. Visitors will have a rare chance to glimpse inside a time marked by death, sadness, bravery and heroism.Musics light among darknessThis remembrance event will highlight the work of Sanibel resident Robert Hilliard and Edward Herman, who is now deceased. The two were young American GIs at the time and stationed in Europe as part of the Allied Forces liberation effort. Mr. Hilliard, a then military journalist, decided to cover a Liberation Concert being held at the St. Ottilien Benedictine Monastery in Germany. According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website, St. Ottilien was used as a Jewish hospital and displaced persons camp from April 1945 until November 1948. Mr. Hilliard arrived at the camp the day the St. Ottilien Ex-Concentration Camp Orchestra was set to perform. The orchestra, comprised of talented musicians who had been interned at concentration camps, organized to play for the sick, the dying and liberation soldiers. At the Liberation Concert, Mr. Hilliard looked around and noticed the poor condition of the Holocaust survivors. They appeared as walking sticks, many too sick to even stand. I cried, Mr. Hilliard said. I was overwhelmed by emotion. Mr. Hilliard, dazed and shocked by the dying faces around him, sought out information from the head doctor at St. Ottilien Dr. Zalman Grinberg, also a Holocaust survivor. Mr. Hilliard said the physician told him that many of the survivors at St. Ottilien continued to die by the dozens because of a lack of medicine, food and other vital supplies. It amounted to further injustice to the already stricken people this time by the very occupational forces placed to help them. The then 19-year-old Mr. Hilliard, saddened and outraged, decided something must be done. I enlisted my Army buddy Ed Herman to help and went beyond the bounds of military protocol, risking court martial, to bring to the attention of the American public the continued genocide by neglect of concentration camp survivors in the American zone, he said. The two young GIs pilfered, raided and bought supplies from everywhere they could. But it wasnt enough. Mr. Hilliard and Mr. Herman started a letter-writing campaign beseeching everyone to get the word out and help. The word got out and made it to the GIs highest chain of command President Harry S. Truman. The story made New York Times headlines and supplies began to pour in to help the starving and sick survivors. Mr. Hilliards and Mr. Hermans work saved countless lives. Thats pretty huge, said Avi Mizrachi, executive director of the Foundation for Holocaust Education Projects and the event organizer. The idea of two young men without high rank or standing risking court martial and other punishments startles and inspires, Mr. Mizrachi said. To honor the two war veterans efforts and to share the memory of St. Ottilien and its concentration camp survivor orchestra and how the music lifted the downtrodden is the essence of the upcoming reunion and Liberation Concert. Pompano Beach resident Steve Gure and his wife Ruth will be attending the Reunion Liberation Concert. In 1945, Mr. Gure, 79, spent time in St. Ottilien after being liberated from a ghetto in Lithuania. While there, he didnt suffer any of the hardships that other survivors before him did because of the efforts of Mr. Hilliard and Mr. Herman, he said. When I was there I was treated very well, Mr. Gure said. I didnt realize how much work was done to make life better for us. Mr. Gure has gone to previous reunions and has had the opportunity to know Mr. Hilliard and Mr. Herman through the years. I am very grateful for what they did, he said. Its amazing what they accomplished at a young age. They are part of the reason I survived and was able to go on with my life. For Sonia Beker, the reunion is poignant and emotional. Her parents, Max Beker and Fania Durmashkin-Beker, initiated The St. Ottilien Ex-Concentration Camp Orchestra. Both of her parents grew up in musical families. Her father played the violin and her mother the piano. The orchestra went on to to perform several concerts in nearby areas under Leonard Bernstein. Ms. Beker will be attending the reunion in a couple of weeks. The 64-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y., resident said recalls the love and energy her parents put into their music and the orchestra despite being weak and malnourished from their time spent in concentration camps. I think that any commemoration that shows the triumph of the human spirit is vital, she said.Going on To the survivors who spent time at St. Ottilien, as well as their children and grandchildren, the fact that they were able to go on with life has been nothing short of a miracle. But for another group of people, the support of reunions such as St. Ottilien is of great value. Franziska Eckert of Germany is a research medical doctor. She spent her youth near St. Ottilien but never knew there was a Displaced People Camp for Holocaust survivors after the war. The truth startled her. She spends much time in labs researching how to figure out what goes wrong on a scientific level and make life better for people. Out of the lab she spends her time trying to help heal the pain and injustices of the Holocaust. Ms. Eckert, 35, participates in an organization called the March of Life. The March of Life consists of European people many descendants of Nazis who forge ahead to build bridges of peace and understanding between children and grandchildren of perpetrators and Holocaust survivors and their families. They organize memorial and peace marches around the world, Ms. Eckert said in an interview at a research lab in Texas. Ms. Eckert is the granddaughter of an SS officer stationed at a training camp in Prague from 1943-1945. She and several other March of Life members dug into their pasts and learned painful details of their relatives. One descendant uncovered that a grandfather built the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Others found out their descendants belonged to SS units that participated in round ups and mass shootings of Jews. The pain of finding this information inspired Ms. Eckert and the others to reach out their hands and hearts in peace and understanding. The things we found out really broke our hearts, she said. Ms. Eckert said having events such as the St. Ottilien reunion is the chance to connect and remember all that the survivors endured. For me its really special that you have this concert, she said. The fact that genocide continues throughout the world makes the chances of another Holocaust linger. The need for people all people to stand up for the voiceless and oppressed is vital. When I see hundreds of thousands of displaced persons throughout the world, including little children, begging for asylum in the U.S. and other countries, I think back to how the American people saved tens of thousands of lives at St. Ottilien and other displaced peoples camps, Mr. Hilliard said. And I look for the people of the U.S. to perform another miracle and save those people who are seeking survival today.

PATIO FURNITURE.COM outlet storeConsumer sentiment down, but still better than a year ago THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAConsumer sentiment among Floridians fell slightly in October to 88.8, down less than half a point from Septembers revised reading, according to the latest University of Florida consumer survey. Among the five components that make up the index, one decreased, two increased and two remained unchanged. The greatest decline was among those with household income less than $50,000 per year, while the biggest increase came from those with incomes above that mark, according to Hector Sandoval, director of the economic analysis program at UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Those respondents with household income under $50,000 were pessimistic about their personal finances: There was a 3-point drop in the perception of personal finances now compared with a year ago, and the expectation of personal finances one year from now declined 4.8 points from last months reading. Overall, perception of personal finances now compared with a year ago remained unchanged at 81.2, as did expectations of personal finances one year from now (97). Views of the national economy were mixed. Anticipation of U.S. economic conditions over the next year fell 2.1 points to 83.2. But expectation of U.S. economic conditions over the next five years increased one point to 86.2. Opinions as to whether now is a good time to buy major household items such as a refrigerator ticked up three-tenths of a point to 96.5. Since 2012, Floridas economy has grown, on average, around 2.3 percent annually, slightly higher than nations economy at 2 percent. Floridas economic growth rate in 2014 ranked 11th in the country, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. The largest contributors to the growth rate were finance activities, retail trade and the education and health services sectors. The Florida unemployment rate declined again in September to 5.2 percent, the lowest since 2008. This decline has been steady and consistent over the years, since the peak in 2009-10. However, it continues to be higher than the U.S. rate of 5.1. Compared with last year, the number of jobs added in September statewide was 235,700, a 3 percent increase. The sector gaining the most jobs was leisure and hospitality, followed by education and health services sector and the trade, transportation and utilities sector. The housing market continues its recovery. Florida home values have increased 7.5 percent over the past year. The number of residential real estate sales during the second quarter of 2015 increased 15 percent compared with the same quarter in 2014. Moreover, the median sales price for singlefamily homes reached $200,000. The stock market has been gaining over the past few weeks. Gasoline prices keep falling and are approaching the record-low levels at the beginning of the year. Consumer sentiment is significantly higher compared to the same month last year, Mr. Sandoval says. One can expect holiday sales to perform better than last year. Conducted Oct. 1-25, the UF study reflects the responses of 450 individuals who were reached on cell phones and who represent a demographic cross section of Florida. The index used is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a 2, the highest is 150.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA14 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 SO YOU WANT TO BE A PHILANTHROPIST?Every dollar saved creates a gift that will keep on giving SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFrank Stern liked saving money. So much so he avoided the Midpoint Memorial Bridge for more than 14 years to save a buck literally. I think he took the bridge once or twice, said Larry Sickler, a long-time supervisor for FTE Developers, one of several local businesses operated by Mr. Stern and his brother Ed Stern. He never went across the Midpoint because he didnt want to pay the toll. He always said, I can get where I want to go without paying a dollar. Mr. Stern was one of those self-made millionaires who ne ver dressed the part nor lived extravagantly. His was a lowkey and healthy lifestyle and he remained active in his businesses until a few years before passing away at the age of 95 in February 2014. Every dollar Mr. Stern saved more than $4 million was endowed to a donor-advised fund at the Southwest Florida Community Foundation that will support his adopted home in perpetuity. Frank was really into investing and making sure his money did a lot of good when he was gone, said Michael Davis, a financial advisor who met Mr. Stern 12 years ago and helped him plan his charitable giving. Frank was extremely frugal and he wanted to make sure he didnt run out of money. Mr. Stern was a self-made millionaire, making his fortune in real estate investment and development during the first wave of seasonal residents to Fort Myers and Cape Coral in the mid-1900s. He discovered Southwest Florida after his father, a butcher, retired to the area and started purchasing land. Frank never had anything handed to him, said Mr. Sickler. Every dollar he had he gained by working hard. Born in Wisconsin, Mr. Stern tapped into his entrepreneurial spirit in high school, renovating and selling Ford motorcars. He was working toward a business degree at the University of Texas during the onset of World War II. He figured if he volunteered he would get a better job, said Charles Marble, a long-time friend and Mr. Sterns caregiver. He didnt want to be in the infantry so he went to flight school. Mr. Stern was stationed in England and flew unarmed recognizance missions into enemy territory. He was like Forest Gump because he witnessed a lot of history, Mr. Davis recalled fondly. Frank had so many stories about the war in Europe. He even took a picture of one of his friends with Churchill and Eisenhower. He was a real gentleman and very interesting to talk to.Mr. Stern was grounded from flying after a freak accident a tree branch punctured his eye and he was reassigned to the flight deck. Thats how he got the picture of Eisenhower and Churchill, said Mr. Marble. If he were flying, he would have never met them. Mr. Stern retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force and was active in its reserve program for 20 years. He established his permanent roots in the Fort Myers area in the 1960s. He never married nor did he have children. Carolyn Rogers, vice president for development at the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, fondly remembers meeting Mr. Stern when he opened the donor advised fund in 2013 with the intent of leaving a legacy. Mr. Stern was in his 90s but leaning back in a chair and was playing with his flip phone like a third-grade boy, she said. His demeanor was infectious and so authentic. Mr. Stern was committed to giving back to the community where hed made his fortune. He was thinking about starting his own foundation until he learned the Southwest Florida Community Foundation was right here and basically doing the same thing, Mr. Marble said. Frank donated to a number of projects but would never accept a plaque or have anything named after him. That wasnt Franks style. He was not looking for accolades from anyone. Mr. Stern was also dedicated to healthful eating and met Mr. Marble, a fellow health food advocate. Frank distilled all his water, was a strict vegetarian and had no faith in modern medicine, Mr. Sickler said. He swam an hour every day. At 90 he was in much better shape than I was at 79. He lived a good life. And he left a never-ending legacy for Southwest Florida. Frank was a fine man. He was honest and fair, a very good person, said Mr. Sickler. Once he opened up, youd see all these great qualities. We started off as business partners and ended up as family. You can be like Frank Stern, too.

BEFORE AFTERYour first session is ONLY $99!($250 VALUE) Call Now and Receive 20% OffPackages!YOU Is it really a problem if 99 percent wish they had it?Among those struggling with psychological issues in modern America are the rich one-percenters (especially the mega-rich one-percent of one-percenters), according to counselors specializing in assuaging guilt and moderating class hatred. Londons The Guardian, reporting from New York, found three such counselors, including two who barely stopped short of comparing the plight of the rich-rich with the struggles of people of color or out-of-closet gays. Sample worries: isolation (so few rich-rich); stress, caused by political hubbub over inequality; and insecurity (is my friend really just a friend of my money?). Cant possibly be trueStories surface regularly about a hospital patient declared dead but who then revives briefly before once again dying. However, Tammy Clevelands recent lawsuit against doctors and DeGraff Memorial Hospital near Buffalo, N.Y., reveals an incident more startling. She alleges that her late husband Michael displayed multiple signs of life (breathing, eyes open, legs kicking, attempted hugs, struggles against the tube in his throat) for nearly two hours, but with two doctors all the while assuring her that he was gone. (The coroner came and went twice, concluding that calling him had been premature.) The lawsuit alleges that only upon the fourth examination did the doctor exclaim, My God, he has a pulse! Michael Cleveland died shortly after that of a punctured lung from CPR following his initial heart attack an injury for which he could have been treated. The continuing crisis For an October report, Vice Media located the half-dozen most-dedicated collectors of those AOL giveaway CDs from the Internets dial-up years ( Hours Free!). Sparky Haufle wrote a definitive AOL-CD collectors guide; Lydia Sloan Cline has 4,000 unique disks; Bustam Halim at one point had 20,000 total, before weeding to 3,000. (The AOL connoisseurs file disks by color, by the hundreds of packaging styles, by number of free hours, and especially by the co-brands the rare pearls, like AOLs deals with Frisbee and Spider Man. Their collections, said both Halim and Brian Larkin, are simply beautiful. In 20th-century Chicago, according to legend, one did not have to be among the living to vote on election day, and a 2013 policy of the citys community colleges has seemingly extended rights of the dead to receive unearned degrees. City Colleges of Chicago, aiming to increase graduation numbers, has awarded a slew of posthumous degrees to former students who died with at least three-fourths of the necessary credits to graduate. (The policy also now automatically awards degrees by reverse transfer of credits to students who went on to four-year colleges, where they added enough credits, hypothetically, to meet City Colleges standards.) People different from usIt would be exhaustive to chronicle the many ways that the woman born Carolyn Clay, 82, of Chattooga County, Ga., is different from us. For starters, she was once arrested for stripping nude to protest a quixotic issue before the city council in Rome, Ga.; for another, her drivers license identifies her as Ms. Serpentfoot Serpentfoot. In October, she filed to change that name to one with 69 words, 68 hyphens, an ellipsis and the infinity sign. One judge has already turned her down on the ground that she cannot recite the name (though she promised to shorten it on legal papers to Nofoot Allfoot Serpentfoot).

This years honorees are: Ron Jefferson, the Golden Gate Area Civic Association; Daryl Mattison, Kiwanis Club of Golden Gate; Nanci Reid, Rotary Club of Naples-Collier; Roy Terry, Public Service Employee of the Year; and Chris Murphy, Community Service Volunteer of the Year. In addition to saluting these citizens, the festivities will include opening a community time capsule that was embedded in the Golden Gate emergency services complex 25 years ago. We remembered the time capsule last year and began to ask around, says Russell Tuff, president of the Golden Gate Presidents Council. We were just glad to find it in one piece. As part of the grand opening of the emergency services complex in 1989, community leaders filled a time capsule and embedded it somewhere inside the building. Because most of the original group have moved away or passed away, it took some research to find the capsule. Longtime Golden Gate Fire Department executive assistant Pat Meulenberg contacted Don Peterson, fire chief from 1990-2007. Mr. Peterson, who is retired and no longer lives in Collier County, remembered the capsule was embedded in the ceiling of one of the storage rooms. Once the capsule was found, a new problem presented itself: The capsule was actually a small safe with a lock and no key. Thanks to the skills of an unofficial locksmith, the lock was picked and the contents will be revealed the night of the banquet. The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. and is open to the public. Tickets for $40 are available by calling 353-1687 or going to goldengateisgreat.com.

Health care costs for dementia greater than for any other disease NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHIn the last five years of life, total health care spending for people with dementia was more than a $250,000 per person, some 57 percent greater than costs associated with death from other diseases, including cancer and heart disease. The new analysis, appearing in the Oct. 27 online issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine, estimates that total health care spending was $287,000 for those with probable dementia and $183,000 for other Medicare beneficiaries in the study. The analysis was funded primarily by the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health. Additional support was provided by the American Federation for Aging Research. Dr. Amy Kelley and her colleagues at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai analyzed data from the Health and Retirement Study, a nationally representative longitudinal study supported by the NIA and the Social Security Administration, as well as linked Medicare and Medicaid records and other data. They calculated the social costs of all types of care for 1,702 Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries age 70 and older who died between 2005-07. Patients were divided into four groups: those with a high probability of dementia; those with either cancer; those with heart disease; and those with another cause of death. The researchers calculated costs from Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, out-of-pocket and informal care over the last five years of life. Specific categories of spending included insurance, hospital, physician, medication, nursing home, hired helpers and inhome medical care. The investigators also measured outof-pocket spending as a proportion of household wealth. This complex analysis provides an important picture of the risks that families face, particularly those with dementia and those who may be least able to bear major financial risk in the last five years of life, says Dr. Richard Hodes, director of the NIA. Such insights are critically important as we examine how best to support the aging of the U.S. population. While average Medicare expenditures across all four disease categories were similar, almost all other costs were consistently higher for people with dementia. Medicaid expenditures for people who died with dementia averaged $35,346 vs. $4,552 for those without dementia. The dementia group had significantly higher enrollment in Medicaid at the start of the five-year study period (21 percent) than those who died from cancer (8 percent), heart disease (8 percent) or other causes (13 percent). Enrollment in Medicaid during the last five years of life also increased for those with dementia (27 percent) compared to those with cancer, heart disease and other causes (12 percent, 15 percent and 15 percent, respectively). For families, out-of-pocket spending for those with dementia was $61,522 compared to $34,068 for those without dementia. Informal care costs were estimated to be $83,022 for people with dementia vs. $38,272 for those without dementia. In addition, out-of-pocket spending as a proportion of total household wealth five years before death was significantly higher median of 32 percent for dementia and 11 percent for other diseases. For African-American households, the median out-of-pocket expenditure was 84 percent of household wealth for those with probable dementia. The gap in the financial burden between those with and without dementia was larger among those who were unmarried, African American and had less than a high school education. Single women with dementia also incurred more out-of-pocket costs than married women with dementia. The NIA leads the federal government effort conducting and supporting research on aging and the health and well-being of older people. The NIA provides information on age-related cognitive change and neurodegenerative disease specifically at its Alzheimers Disease Education and Referral Center.

Dr. Lynn Sarkela D.C. 239-631-5393 Chiropractic OF NAPLES HAND & FOOT CLINICNCH welcomes three-dimensional mammography technologyThe new three-dimensional mammography technology offered at NCH Commons on Goodlette Frank Road holds the promise of being better at picking up invasive tumors and avoiding false alarms than traditional breast cancer screening methods. A mammogram can help find breast cancer early, when its easier to treat. We at NCH strive to make a difference by spreading the word about mammograms and encouraging communities, organizations, families and individuals to do the same. Im pleased to report that our efforts in this regard over the past five years have helped result in a decrease in the prevalence of breast cancer among our female colleagues at NCH. One in eight women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point in her life. Every year, more than 200,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer, and late stage or metastatic breast cancer will kill about 40,000 women. We urge every woman to talk to a doctor about her risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member has had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if its found and treated early. The Journal of the American Medical Association recently reported that researchers have found three-dimensional mammograms can increase cancer detection by more than 40 percent. They also found a 20 percent dip in the number of women who had to return for more tests because of a suspicious mammogram finding. Because images from a three-dimensional mammogram are cross-sectional, an abnormal area cannot hide behind normal dense breast tissue. These are pictorial slices, not actual tissue slices; the test is similar to obtaining a traditional mammogram as the computer creates the sliced images. Medicare pays for the three-dimensional mammography; some commercial insurers are paying and more are expected to start soon (at NCH Commons, the charge to a patient is $70.20 if not covered by her insurance). Our aim is to assist everyone in living a longer, happier and healthier life. Our three-dimensional mammography program will help in that ambitious goal. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org Brown bag lunch for the blind and visually impairedLighthouse of Collier Center for Blindness and Vision Loss invites visually impaired people and their caregivers to a brown bag lunch program from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, at Lighthouse headquarters, 2685 Horseshoe Drive S.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickMy heart breaks every day when I look at my Facebook feed and see posts about older dogs in shelters. They look sad, scared, hopeful and confused. I wonder by what misstep of fate they were separated from or given up by their families. And I wonder why more people dont adopt seniors. My own experience in adopting a 13-year-old dog has, 2years down the road, been nothing but wonderful. Luckily for seniors in shelters, awardwinning journalist Laura T. Coffey, ably partnered by photographer Lori Fusaro, has gathered the stories and photographs of 19 golden oldies and the people who love them in the new book My Old Dog: Rescued Pets With Remarkable Second Acts. Released just in time for Adopt-a-Senior-Pet month, its a remarkable and heartwarming collection of aging dogs, lost or thrown away, who find second chances with people who look beneath their gray muzzles and slower steps to the loving heart inside. Theres Fiona, who was 15 with mammary tumors when Rita Earl found her at a West Los Angeles shelter. Earl took Fiona in as a hospice dog, thinking she had little time left. But with TLC and home-cooked meals, Fiona blossomed. Now she loves to barrel down stairs, play with Earl and her other two dogs, and dance when shes happy, which is most of the time. She makes my heart burst when she looks up at me with that gray face, full of love, Earl says. Jimmy Chee, an 11-year-old retired racing greyhound, was returned by adopters three times through no fault of his own. He found his forever home with Bob Fitzgerald, who had suffered debilitating health problems and spent long, lonely hours at home. Fitzgerald worried at first about Jimmys age, but changed his mind: This is a cool dog. He deserves to have enjoyment in life and relaxation and to be treated like a little king. He has a wonderful personality, and his age doesnt make any difference to me. Advancing age caused Cullen, 9, to have to retire from his job as a service dog for Kristie Baker. Baker didnt want to give him up, but she knew he would have to play second fiddle to a new service dog. Her friend Jeannie Curtin adopted Cullen, and now he enjoys a second career as a therapy dog who makes weekly visits to a childrens hospital. My Old Dog is more than sweet stories and photos. It shares information about rescue groups that specialize in seniors, such as the Grey Muzzle Organization, Old Dog Haven and Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary. It discusses the most common health problems seen in older dogs bladder stones and dental disease both of which are treatable, as well as ways people can help oldsters, even if theyre not in a position to adopt. And it explores the phenomenon of pet-friendly senior communities and assisted living and nursing facilities, which are often good landing spots for senior dogs. Coffey is passionate about the benefits of adopting an older dog Theyre calm, mellow, sweet, loveable, and theyre usually already house trained but she also recognizes that senior adoptions can come with a tinge of sadness because people can expect fewer years with the dog (and lets not leave out cats). We always want our dogs to live longer, she says. But when you go out of your way to help an older dog who has run out of options, you get so much in return: affection, gratitude, unconditional love and so many happy memories. Actor George Clooney fell hard for an aging cocker spaniel with a snack habit. PET TALESOld dogs, new livesSenior pets are among the highest risk animals at shelters, but they can be perfect companions for many people Pets of the Week>> Alpha is a playful, 2-monthold Chihuahua mix who loves just about everything and everyone.

Motivated! THE DIVA DIARIESFishing for a costume: A cautionary tale Always be yourself. Unless you can be a Mermaid. Then, always be a mermaid. Random Internet meme So, I decided to be a mermaid for a fabulous Halloween soiree I was invited to. Wait allow me to clarify that vodka and ginger ale made the decision that I would be a mermaid on Halloween. I was enjoying a cocktail or three one evening in September when the Halloween party invite appeared on Facebook and an online conversation ensued. My friend, Gloria, who owns the Mermaid Garden Caf, wrote that she was going to attend as a (of course) a mermaid. I took a sip of my Ketel One and responded, I will be a mermaid, too!! Gloria immediately tagged several of our mutual friends and challenged them to be mermaids. I then wrote, Yay!! We will be the Mermaid Brigade!! By the way, Im pretty sure the number of my exclamation points equaled the amount of cocktails I had consumed. The next morning, however, as I perused the Facebook thread, I was undaunted. After all, I had an entire month to become a mermaid. I texted Gloria, What are you wearing to be a mermaid? She texted me a photo of Kim Kardashian in a mermaid costume and boy was it something. A sparkling pearl and seashell encrusted bra with a sexy, tight, shimmering green tail. Im not sure how Kim managed to walk in it. Kanye probably just carried her around. Meanwhile, our crafty friend Valerie had ordered a bustier online which she intended to hot glue seashells onto. She also purchased stunning chiffon fabric to sew into a tail. On the other side of town, our girlfriend Karen had bought a beautiful green mermaid dress, a long platinum wig and was hiring a professional makeup artist to transform her face into that of a gorgeous mermaid. After hearing all this, I vowed to never drink and Facebook again. Not having been born with the crafty gene or the Kardashian bank account, I started my online search for a mermaid costume. Keep in mind though that I am a grown-up, married lady who has not revealed her midriff in public since the early s and costumes with names like Sexy Siren of the Sea, Fanta-Sea Femme Fatale and Lacy Loving Mermaid were NOT going to work. Besides the fact that they only came in sizes XS and S, I could have saved $59.99 and just applied glitter to strategic areas and gone to the party naked. Still, I kept up the search for a mermaid costume that wouldnt get me arrested for indecent exposure, but alas, it seemed not to exist. So, off to Jo-Ann Fabrics I went where I purchased green scaly cloth (I thought it was mermaidesque, but I was told by everyone at the party that it was more crocodile than mermaid) and according to a post on Pinterest, I could cut little pieces of it, and with fabric glue, attach them onto a long, skinny skirt I already owned. When I couldnt find the skirt anywhere, I went with a long green satin nightgown. But, just try gluing felt-like material onto satin (Pinterest fail). The night before the party found me hand sewing bits of crocodile material onto a nightie from Target until 2 a.m. Luckily, I found a Mermaid Off-Duty T-shirt at the last minute, so I didnt feel like a complete fish out of water. Again, let this be a warning about Facebook and vodka never mix, never worry. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org The writer as an off-duty "mermaid" convening with Mother Nature, Lori Sampson.

B6-7 Health industry feeling the strain of switching to ICD-10, a new system of medical coding HAVE YOU EVER GONE TO THE DOCTOR WITH A burn because your water skis were on fire? As of Oct. 1, theres a code for that used for medical billing purposes. Have you ever been struck by a turtle? Theres a code for that, too. And if you were injured at a library, opera house, art gallery, or at a pool in prison, or you got sucked into a jet engine or were crushed by an alligator, there are codes for each instance. At the beginning of October, healthcare providers in the United States switched over to a new and updated, federally mandated medical coding system that aims to capture a far greater level of detail than the coding system of years past.

M ONE Y & I NVESTI N GTake advantage of Social Security loophole while you still canI used to believe that getting older meant being better at things. I couldnt wait to better my tennis game or learn a second language. But now that I am in my middle years, I am content with not having to wear a knee brace after a run or remembering my anniversary date. One thing that does get better with getting older, however, is voting. People of retirement age are more than twice as likely to go to the ballot box compared with people under 25. Which is way it was so mind blowing that, in the budget passed last week, Congress voted to do something virtually unheard of in history take away a critical entitlement benefit for retired people. So what was this benefit and what can you do about this change? The change in benefits that Congress passed has to do with claiming Social Security benefits with a spouse. Basically, it eliminates a strategy known as file and suspend. Up until now, the higher wage earner of a couple could file for Social Security and then immediately suspend collection of said benefits. Why would someone do this? Because as soon as a person files for benefits, his spouse can immediately begin collecting spousal benefits at 50 percent of the primary earners benefits. And then by suspending the primary earners benefits, he can still increase the monthly payout he will eventually receive upon receiving his entitlement payments in the future. In addition, the spouse will continue to increase her monthly payouts for the future because she is not collecting on her contributions, she is simply collecting spousal benefits. To illustrate this strategy, lets come up with an example using two fictitious people, Eric (the higher earner) and Robin (his spouse). At 66 years old, Eric files for Social Security benefits at $1,000 per month. Robin would immediately also receive $500 per month as 50 percent spousal benefit. But then Eric would suspend his benefit so he would push off receiving any funds. This would not affect Robin at all and she would still collect her $500 per month. Although Eric would not receive any cash payments, he would continue to accrue added benefits as if he never filed for benefits at all. Then, when he is 70, Eric can file to have his benefits start to pay out. Now instead of receiving $1,000 per month, he may be entitled to as much as $1,300 per month for delaying his payout. And Robin can either continue to collect her $500 per month spousal benefit or file for benefits based on her own earnings, which have continued to grow during this time as well. Going forward, retiring couples will not be able to take advantage of this file and suspend strategy. Spousal benefits cannot be taken unless the higher earner has filed for benefits and is collecting benefits as well. If the higher earner suspends benefits, the spousal benefits will be suspended as well. Government officials indicated that they were making this change as it was an unintended loophole in regulations passed in 2000 and that mostly it was the rich taking advantage of this program. Given that this program is being eliminated, is there anything a person 66 to 70 years old can do now? Fortunately, yes. The government is giving people a sixmonth window from now where they can still file and suspend. Therefore, I would strongly advise either speaking with a financial advisor or doing the math yourself to see if this strategy makes sense for you. Generally speaking, it does if both partners are healthy and one or more had high earnings, which would benefit from delaying benefits and thus collecting greater delayed retirement credits. And for those of us in our 40s and 50s? I guess we should just count ourselves lucky if Social Security is there for us at all in a few decades. Im not holding my breath.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 merly used in the United States included some 13,000 codes. The new ICD-10 provides roughly 68,000 codes, with room for more. Jokes have circulated online and in medical circles about some of the highly specific conditions and accidents the new codes describe, but they have also stoked anxiety among doctors who worry that it will make an already complicated payment system even worse. The time and effort physicians and staff need to put into the transition is a concern for doctors, especially those with smaller private practices, said April Donahue, executive director of the Collier County Medical Society. Time is one of their very limited resources as it is so that was a significant concern. For physicians and hospitals, they are also paid based on the code used, whether from Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance companies. Lee Memorial Health System has been preparing for the switch to the new classification system for nearly three years in part because the 2013 transition deadline was delayed until this year, said Tricia Parker, ICD-10 project manager for LMHS. LMHS updated information technology systems, software and support staff to accommodate the format of new codes. Physicians and coding staff who translate physicians documentation into codes felt the effects most. What those delays allowed us to do was to implement a lot of these things earlier rather than later, she said. She reports that since Oct. 1 there has been a seamless transition with nearly no technical issues, patient care delays, or fumbles from insurance companies. Youre kind of on edge, she said about the change, but it was a non event. At the same time, doctors with private practices worry that the cost in time and other resources to make the transition is a hassle that will do little or nothing to improve patient outc omes or experiences, and may cause delays in payments. Perhaps to lessen the mood of anxiety over the switch, nearly everyone in the medical community, it seems, finds some humor in the codes. Dr. Rafael Haciski, a Naples gynecologist and vice president of the Collier County Medical Society, recently saw an Internet joke featureing The Most Interesting Man in the World, the character made famous in Dos Equis beer commercials. In the meme, the man says about the updated classification system: I usually do not get sucked into a jet engine, but if I do, I use ICD-10. Kidding aside, Dr. Haciski feels the new code sets are a bureaucratic burden that increase his workload by hours every day without offering clinical benefits to his patients or himself. There are absolutely no benefits to the patient, none whatsoever, he said. So it really boils down to just throwing another impediment on our road to practicing medicine. The switch to ICD-10 also affects different medical specialties differently. For instance, as an OB-GYN, Dr. Haciski gained extra codes under the ICD-10 but also lost some. More importantly, many more that are needed, says Dr. Haciski, were not provided. Coders or billing companies that doctors use have been preparing for the changes as well, he said, with some more prepared than others. And if a doctor or assistant or a coder picks the wrong code, he worries that could lead to delayed payments for doctors, as well as potentially costly audits, or even being charged with fraud. The weight above our head to do it correctly is huge, he said. It is an added expense on our backs, an added procedure on our backs and there is no reimbursement for that added effort. So something has to give somewhere. I cannot continue to give things for free. Dr. Alvaro Bada, a private practice general surgeon in Port Charlotte, agrees. (ICD-10) might help in the collection of data and information but not in the actual day to day care, said Dr. Alvaro Bada, a general surgeon in Port Charlotte. Its very onerous and I dont think its going to help patient care at all. Although its hard to put a dollar figure on what the change might cost a doctors individual practice, he estimates that new computer programs, training staff and his own time has cost upwards of $10,000. There is a code for running into a lamppost, Dr. Bada points out, And theres another code for if he hits the lamppost a second time. If youre riding a jet ski in the water and the jet ski catches fire, theres a code for that. Theres a code if you get bitten by a rabbit. I mean, its ridiculous. Theres a whole website that you can read all the new codes and it sounds like jokes from Jay Leno, you know? The general sentiment among his colleagues is ICD-10 is just more hassle, more paperwork, more headache to pay less, he said. Thats what it boils down to.Benefits of ICD-10The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is playing a leading role in administering the change to the ICD-10, which is produced by the World Health Organization. According to CMS, ICD-9 is more than 35 years old and contains outdated, obsolete terms that are inconsistent with current medical practice. The updates to the coding system were mandated by the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. CMS claims the new system will advance public health research, surveillance, and emergency response. The change to ICD-10 allows you to capture more details about the health status of your patients and sets the stage for improved patient care and public health surveillance across our country, CMS said in a press release aimed at doctors. ICD-10 will help move the nations health care system to better, smarter care. Large amounts of new data may be produced based on patient encounters as millions of patient-doctor encounters are coded. Some codes could eventually help in medical research. For instance, the new codes distinguish what side of the body or limb is the subject of a doctors evaluation. One code identifies the use of a cell phone or other electronic equipment in a car accident. While CMS reports that so far medical claims are processing normally, its also too early for definitive data that could show payments to physicians are being delayed or denied because of confusion over what codes to use for what maladies. RevCycle Intelligence, an industry website that provides news and product information about claims reimbursement and medical billing, reported on Oct. 14 that technical difficulties, coding snafus and payment snags stemming from ICD-10 implementation aftermath may now be causing physicians to divert much needed focus away from patient care. Local health care providers said the change doesnt affect patients so much as it does put a strain on physicians and coders. There really isnt any direct impact so to speak, for patients, said Ms. Parker of LMHS. Its really more about being able to effectively document the care they were given and be able to provide better treatment and documentation to support it With any change like this theres a lot of data thats going to be collected, by insurance companies, hospitals and others, she said. We think of Oct. 1 as being the start of a journey and fully expect once theres more data to research and analyze therell be additional changes that come down the pike for health-care organizations in general.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. What If the IRS Audits You?Less than 1 percent of tax returns are audited, but if the IRS does come knocking, what should you do? Its often best to have a qualified tax professional deal with the IRS for you. But if you go it alone, here are a few tips. Dont ignore the audit notice, or you may get socked with a bill. It will tell you exactly what items are being questioned, helping you determine what documentation you need to mail in or bring in person. (Remember, its your legal responsibility to prove your deductions.) Bring only what you need to. Extra items could lead to further questions. Also, bring copies of documents, not originals, to avoid any getting lost. Be organized. Auditors will be happy if you make their job easier and dont you want a happy auditor? Replace missing records. The auditor wont skip some items just because you cant find your supporting documentation. A deduction in question may be denied if there are no supporting documents. Stay focused. If you meet with an auditor, youre essentially providing testimony. Answer as many questions as possible with a simple yes or no. If you must explain, keep it brief. Chatting about your fancy new car, for example, might raise some unwanted questions. Know your rights as a taxpayer. An audit is like a small trial. Its important to understand the audit process and the law behind the deductions youre claiming. Its generally best to settle any difference at the audit level, but if you cant come to an agreement, you can request a conference with the IRS Appeals Division.Given the complexity of the tax code, think hard about hiring a qualified tax professional to help you. An Enrolled Agent, for example, can represent you before the IRS. Remember, too, that an audit is often a matter of a simple question, easily answered and cleared up.

The company was mining for diamonds, too, and also entered into a deal involving drilling for oil. The stock has been useful to me because I can sell off pieces of my position in it to offset gains at tax time. Im still holding on to my dream! C., onlineThe Fool Responds: Ouch. Golconda is very much a penny stock, with shares worth less than a penny apiece the last time they traded. It has likely given you a total loss, so you should stop holding on to that dream. Youre right to point out the consolation prize that a terrible investment offers: the chance to offset taxable capital gains with your capital losses. In other words, if youre sitting on $10,000 in losses and you have $5,000 in taxable capital gains this year from appreciated stocks that you sold, you can sell enough shares of your loser so that you have a $5,000 loss. That can wipe out your gain, sparing you the taxes on that gain. If you recognize a $10,000 loss and have only a $5,000 gain, you can take up to $3,000 as a deduction against your taxable income and then carry over the remaining $2,000 loss to the next year, to offset other gains or to serve as another deduction. Its better than nothing. Searching for ProfitsIf youre looking for an undervalued fast-grower and you can handle some risk, give some consideration to the Chinese search engine giant Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU). Its stock has fallen some 30 percent over the past year, partly due to concerns over Chinas slowing economy, but theres much to like about the company. Baidu evolved from a simple search engine into an ecosystem of portals, cloud apps and mobile services, and is investing in many growth initiatives, such as an O2O (online-to-offline) platform to let users order products and services directly from its mobile app. Its investments are shrinking its profit margins and earnings in the near term, but can pay off handsomely in the future for patient investors. (Baidus once worrisome investments in mobile technology have paid off well, with more than half of its revenue now mobile-based.) Baidus future seems quite promising. While Internet penetration in the United States is already hovering near 85 percent, its roughly half of that in China. There are literally hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers coming online many of them via mobile devices. Meanwhile, Baidu offers user-generated content, social-networking products, security products, online marketing products, video streaming and a patient-doctor booking service, among other things. Its even expected to debut driverless cars by the end of this year. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Baidu.) I was founded in 1969 by a couple who found it hard to buy good-fitting jeans. My first store offered both vinyl records and Levi Strauss jeans. Today, still based in San Francisco, Im a top global apparel company, with store brands that include my own name, along with Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and Intermix. I rake in more than $16 billion annually, selling my wares in close to 4,000 stores in more than 90 nations. I introduced online shopping in 1997 and released my first Corporate Social Responsibility report in 2004. Who am I? (Answer: Gap Inc.) AnticipationQWith a companys anticipated quarterly earnings, who is doing the anticipating? G.M., Columbus, MississippiAEarnings estimates usually reflect the consensus of Wall Street analysts who have often received guidance from the companies themselves. In quarterly earnings reports and elsewhere, company bigwigs will often mention their earnings and revenue expectations for the coming quarter or year. In the past, such information was often privately disclosed to select parties, but thats no longer allowed.Information on earnings expectations can help investors estimate a companys fair value. But given that theyre really just short-term guesses, they get too much attention. Also, since a companys stock can get punished upon disappointing earnings, managements may undershoot their guidance.For long-term investors, how a company will perform over the coming years or decades is most important, not what analysts expect will happen in the next three to 12 months. If youre aiming to hold on to a great company for a decade or more, the two numbers that will determine your ultimate gain are the price you bought at and the price you sold at, not the stocks price every three months. ***QWhat can I read to learn more about financial planning?

Written by French playwrights Marc Camoletti, Beverley Cross and Francis Evans, the story centers on the desperate contortions Parisian bachelor Bernard undergoes to keep his three fiances from discovering each other. Since the women are all flight attendants, the introduction of a speedier jet sets Bernards timing awry and confuses his visiting childhood friend, Robert. The work premiered in 1960 in Paris, enjoyed a successful run on Broadway and was particularly successful in London, where it was staged at the Apollo and Duchess theaters for seven years starring David Tomlinson. It was also made into a 1965 film starring Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis. Gulfshore Playhouse chose to stage an updated script, with the two male characters changed from French men French farce takes off with modern updates SEE BOEING, C16
SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS The fiction behind the romance I was born a romantic. When other little girls wanted to play teacher or house, I had more torrid ambitions. All those undramatic scenarios You be the mama, and Ill be the baby never appealed to me. Too boring, I said. When I played Barbies, my dolls were always embroiled in a complicated love story filled with sacrifice, longing and betrayal. Although, looking back, I see that my in-born romantic nature wasnt the only thing fueling these make-believe scenarios. I was also an avid reader, and the stories I chose had the same dramatic plot lines. Those Baby Sitter Club books never cut it; I needed starcrossed lovers and crazy wives living in the attic. Of course, we inevitably place ourselves at the center of the stories we create. My playmates were happy to project themselves into the future as teachers or homemakers. In fact, thats what many of them became. And they seem quite happy. Happier than I am, certainly. My problem? I imagined myself as the complicated heroine in the midst of an epic love story. I wanted to be Jane Eyre or Elizabeth Bennet. But life, Im slowly discovering, doesnt have these plot lines. Those little girls who wanted to play house were closer to understanding the real world than I ever was. All those ho-hum scenarios were actually good practice for the rest of our lives. Recently, I bemoaned this realization to a friend. What did you think life would be like? he asked. More dramatic, I said. Like what you read in books. He laughed. Theres your problem. My problem? Whats wrong with using novels as a reference guide? Who wrote those books? my friend asked. I thought through my favorites. Emily Bronte, dead at 30 from tuberculosis, unmarried. Jane Austen, also unwed, who never lived apart from her family. Did any of those authors live the lives they wrote about? my friend asked. No, I thought. In fact, if I had to guess, Id say they probably lived quite lonely lives. Was it possible? Had the stories that dramatically influenced my life, the plot lines and dramatic scenarios that imprinted on me as a child, the characters that convinced me love and romance were the most essential ingredients to a well-lived life were these simply the products of sheltered young womens imaginations? The answer: Yes. This realization sat heavy with me for days. How could I have gotten it so wrong? Then I had the chance to sit in on a literature class at Florida SouthWestern State College. During the session, the professor posed this question to his students: Are writers heroes? The answer was swift and universal: No. But they write about other people doing heroic things, one student qualified. I considered this as I drove home after the class. Maybe I was never destined to be a heroine in a grand saga. Perhaps I was only meant to write about them. Which wouldnt be so bad. Ill just have to include a postscript apologizing to all the impressionable young women who, like me, want to believe its anything more than fiction.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 kissing as non-essential. Annette Trossbach, founder of Laboratory Theater of Florida, has been thinking a lot about kissing lately. And shes also been doing more than her usual share. Shes starring in the companys production of Stage Kiss by Sarah Ruhl. Its the first time the play will be produced in Florida. In it, Ms. Trossbachs character, She, does a lot of kissing. A lot. Just five minutes into the play, She has already kissed someone four times. In Act I alone, She kisses four times in Scene 1, six times in Scene 2, three times in Scene 3 and six times in Scene 4. And there are seven more kisses to come in the first half of the play. She kisses her fellow leading actor, Paul Graffy, mostly, but also kisses every other character in the play except for the ones playing her director and her teenage daughter. It sure is an interesting business, isnt it? Ms. Trossbach says of acting. Theater is such a unique and beautiful lie, because as an audience what you long for onstage is a depiction of the truth, and yet we all understand that were in an artificial situation. There are 100 people looking up at a wooden stage and at actors, and expecting a truthful portrayal of a story and of the characters emotions, and we want the truth, because we want to connect with the characters onstage and the story. And yet, we know its a beautiful lie. But meanwhile, as actors, theyre all aware of the craft, she says. Yet were trying to be truthful and as honest as possible in an artificial situation, while turning three-quarters to the audience while making sure that were still in the light, while making sure that we are projecting our voices beyond what we would normally project in a regular conversation, while sticking to the exact lines the playwright has provided. With all of that going on, were still seeking to portray the truth. And then to throw on top of that this special intimacy of kissing, she exclaims. Its a challenge that requires actors to have a strong sense of self and not be sidelined by personal emotions, she says. Its not even really kissing, she says.All about contextIf someone asks her what its like to kiss Mr. Graffy so many times, her answer is, I dont know. Im not. Its her character kissing the character hes playing, she explains. Its all about context, she says. Mr. Graffy agrees. A real kiss is an expression of affection, an expression of varying degrees of intimacy, he says. A stage kiss is about context: What is it accomplishing? Are the characters kissing for the first time, or after 20 years? Are they making up or breaking up? A stage kiss, says the Naples-based actor, is really used as a verb, to move things along. It has to be done with intention and commitment. But at the end of the day, its just fulfilling the storytelling requirement. Thats what a stage kiss is. Its usually used in the context of the story to tell the audience where these people are in a relationship. He doesnt feel awkward about kissing on stage. Its not you, he explains. Its never you. Youre walking in someone elses shoes. Thats what we do as actors. We get to take other peoples lives out for a test drive. And thats fun. You dont have the responsibility of it (in the end), but you get to emphasize who they are and what they feel and whats going on in their world. Thats the fun of acting. You get to explore dark moods and elation and everything in between. Mr. Graffy has no fears that Ms. Trossbachs husband is going to punch him in the nose afterward, he says. And his wife understands that its part of his job, as does Ms. Trossbachs husband. In fact, the two spouses will sit together in the audience on opening night, watching their partners in character kiss again and again onstage.Art imitating life and vice versaMs. Ruhls clever play is about two actors, a man and a woman, who had an affair years ago. It ended badly, and they havent seen each other for 20 years, until they discover theyre playing against each other in a revival of a 1930s play. The play happens to be about former lovers who havent seen each other in 20 years, but reunite. Ms. Ruhl, known for works such as The Clean Room, Dead Mans Cell Phone and In the Next Room, Or the Vibrator Play, has cleverly crafted a play in which life imitates art and vice versa. She has also enfolded two plays within Stage Kiss: an over-the-top 1930s melodrama and a more current, violent play, in which Mr. Graffys character plays a soldier in the Irish Republican Army and Ms. Trossbachs character plays an aging whore from Brooklyn. Ms. Trossbach loves Ms. Ruhls work. I think she has a unique voice, she says. I love how truthful her plays are while still being entertaining and quirky. Shes not a cheap comedy. She writes profound work, and this play is no exception. Witty and fun, superficially, but its also profound on a deeper level. The plays (within Stage Kiss) are paralleling their relationship and where theyre going, Mr. Graffy says. Its quite an incredible piece of writing. Ms. Ruhl takes the comedy and gives it a tremendous depth, says Lois Kuehne, whos directing the Lab Theater production. Shes very talented that way. On first read, her shows may just seem funny, but there is tremendous depth in them, which is something Paul and Annette have brought out exquisitely.A safe placePart of her job as director, Ms. Kuehne says, is to create a safe environment for the actors. In order to protect each other, and especially Ms. Trossbach, who kisses the widest variety of characters in the play, the actors all have an agreement not to kiss if they have a scratchy throat or feel a cold coming on. And, backstage they have a communal basket of mints and minty gum, with a sign that reads: Respect and charm your fellow actors with minty breath! Those newer to acting may have more of a problem with stage kissing, Ms. Kuehne says. With seasoned actors like Paul and Annette, it was like: OK, were going to do this, and its fine. It wasnt really awkward. They did not put off the kissing scenes, because you have to get any potential awkwardness out of the way. Now its just part of the craft, part of the process: On this cue, I open the door, on this cue I kiss you, on this cue we walk to the window. It becomes very routine. Its just part of the role. Its the same as dying on stage, or ... like anything else in the process of acting, she says. Its part of the role and you have to just do it, and then it becomes routine. She does recall one time she was rehearsing for a production of Oklahoma! in which she played Ado Annie, a girl who cant say no. As part of her role, she had to lay a big kiss on her fellow actor. I hadnt kissed anyone except my husband for maybe 20 years, she recalls. I started to laugh, and I laughed so hard because I was so uncomfortable about it, and he started to get embarrassed, because I couldnt stop laughing. It was the absolute reaction you never want your actor to have. I completely fell apart. It was a big old kiss. I can still remember that feeling. It was: Wow, this is so strange and weird, and I dont know if I like this. And he was a really good friend of ours, and real sweet. I laughed so hard I think he felt: I didnt think I was thatbad! I was embarrassed that I was making him feel uncomfortable. As for Stage Kiss, everybody is comfortable with all the kissing. Theres a lot of kissing in this show, she says. This is acting. Its our job. Its what you have to do. Anne ttes and Pauls characters are very passionate, but they are not their characters. Thats why they call it acting.

FLORIDA WRITERSBeautifully paced and structured mystery thriller reveals ugly truths The Cardinals Sin by Robert Lane. Mason Alley Publishing. 368 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95. The third novel in Robert Lanes Jake Travis series meets and beats any expectations Mr. Lanes readers developed from enjoying The Second Letter and Cooler Than Blood (both reviewed in these pages). It starts with a bang and never lets up. The bang is Jakes assignment: Hes tasked with killing an assassin who targets the relatives and other loved ones of special operations agents. Yes, this is exactly it. He must assassinate an assassin. As they must in order to have a story line, things go wrong. Jake seriously compromises his relationship with Kathleen, the love of his life, with whom he has been enjoying a European vacation when the assignment reaches him. Understandably, he keeps his assignment from her, but this turns out to be a mistake. Meaning to protect her, he inevitably belittles her. Much of this fine novel provides a moving and sophisticated exploration of the relationship between Kathleen and Jake, one in which the killing power of words vies with the powerful finality of the assassins craft. And there is this other mistake. Jake has been informed that his target is a man who uses the disguise of a Cardinals garb. At the proper time and at the proper place, he shoots a man who he thinks is the faux Cardinal; however, he shoots an actual Cardinal a man who might have had a death wish. The real Cardinal is Giovanni Antinori, a popular and progressive prelate known as the Peoples Cardinal. Somehow, he had replaced Jakes intended Kensington Gardens target, a man known as Alexander Paretsky, whose recent work against U.S. interests followed a major security breach revealing the names of U.S. clandestine agents. A photograph in his victims hand eventually becomes an important item in the investigation that Jake and his cohorts conduct with assistance from an FBI connection. Mr. Lanes readers know these carefully etched characters. One is Garrett, a co-worker on Jakes assignments directed by Colonel Janssen. Another is Morgan, Jakes neighbor on paradisiacal St. Petes Island. FBI special agent Natalie Binelli seems a reluctant contributor of information, but a most useful one. The colonel tells Jake that Paretsky has been seen with the beautiful Ren Lambert, whose father just happens to live an island away from Jake. Ren becomes a key figure in Jakes effort to uncover Paretsky and put an end to his killing spree. But she proves hard to find. The joys of this book include the intricate details uncovered as Jake goes after his real prey; the vivid and atmospheric renderings of scenes in London, the Tampa Bay area and elsewhere; the expanding information involving family histories of three young girls that lies in the deep background of the present situation; and the blazing action scenes that the author handles so well. All along the way, the portrayal of Jakes off-and-on relationship with Kathleen provides another powerful element of suspense. How can a man who does what Jake does risk having intimate relationships? How can any woman accept the necessary conditions of deceit and risk built into such relationships? What kinds of courage are called for? There is fun for readers in that relationship, not just brooding and hostility based on conflicting values and roles. Playful literary banter, testing each others knowledge of lines from famous (or not-so-famous) books, reveals an area of common ground. The reader gets to play, too. All three of Mr. Lanes Jake Travis novels have the potential to be made into compelling films. There is a strong cinematic element in each. But first they make exciting reading experiences: Florida noir at its best.About the authorRobert Lanes debut novel, The Second Letter, was received with critical acclaim, winning a Gold Medal from Independent Book Publishers Association and the 2015 Benjamin Franklin Award for Best New Voice: Fiction. His second stand-alone Jake Travis novel, Cooler Than Blood, was published in February 2015, and now The Cardinals Sin offers teaser chapters from the forthcoming The Gail Force. The author resides on the west coast of Florida. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. m th Ja w th philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com LANE NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 I WANT YOU AT OUR USO SHOW November 11, 2015 12 pm 1:30 pmNAPLES DEPOT MUSEUM1051-5TH AVENUE S.

ARTS COMMENTARY True to Agatha Christie, season opener at Florida Rep keeps you guessingRichard is dead. And no one is grieving. Not his mother, not his half-brother, not even his wife. He was a cruel man, an alcoholic, sadistic. Before sustaining an injury, he was a big game hunter in Africa, mercilessly killing animals for sport. Confined to a wheelchair after that, he still killed animals, taking a special glee in shooting local dogs and cats. Years ago, he even recklessly hit and killed a child with his car, but got away with it. Its easy, as an audience member, to not feel regretful about this untimely death. The Unexpected Guest, playing at Florida Repertory Theatre through Nov. 18, starts off on a promising note. Mystery maven Agatha Christie opens the play with a dead body and, soon after, a confession. You might think that would make for a very short play. Youd be wrong. Practically everyone in the house is suspect, from the mother to the wife to yes, even the butler, who was more of a valet/personal assistant for Richard, who is now very, very dead. Director Robert Cacioppo creates a great atmosphere from the outset. Its a foggy November night in 1958 South Wales, when a stranger (Lou Stumrall) stumbles into a house, having run his car off the road. He finds the corpse in a wheelchair in the study. (Bert Scott has designed a book-lined, wood-paneled room, with half a dozen stuffed animal heads mounted on the walls.) He soon discovers the newly widowed Laura (Margaret Loesser Robinson) hiding in the study. Ms. Robinson plays the role as a Hitchcockian heroine: the icy-cold blonde who could be a coldblooded murderer, or who might simply in shock. Costume designer Stefanie Genda has dressed her in a Dior-inspired strapless gown with an off-the-shoulder short jacket, in a shimmery blue/ black material. With Ms. Robinsons striking looks and outfit, it is difficult to keep your eyes off of her; you can understand why the stranger who has stumbled into this murder scene would want to help protect her. Laura quickly admits to the murder. But this is an Agatha Christie mystery, so nothing is as simple as it seems. When the police arrive Inspector Thomas (Larry John Meyers) and his underling, Sergeant Cadwallader (Brian Hatch) suddenly everyone seems suspect. Is it Angell, the valet/personal attendant? Miss Bennett, the households nurse? Richards mentally challenged half-brother? His wife? His mother? The next-door neighbor? Everyone, it seems, has a motive. Richard, after all, was a despicable man. His survivors refer to him as a monster and a beast. What appears in the beginning to be a simple murder grows more complicated and murky as the play progresses. Audience members are encouraged to guess the identity of the murderer at intermission via ballot, and I overheard many discussions about who it could possibly be. (I also heard complaints that Inspectors Welsh accent was too thick and that the wife was difficult to hear.) The Unexpected Guest isnt Ms. Christies best. And those more used to quicker-paced TV mysteries and thrillers might find this a bit slow. Theres tons of exposition in the first act, which runs 90 minutes about 50 percent longer than most first acts, nowadays. But it makes up for it in the second act, where possible suspects are considered and then eliminated, one by one. The play also reveals adultery, blackmail, deceit and lies and red herrings galore. In this ensemble piece, anyone could be guilty. David Breitbarth is chilling as Angell, with anger at the world bubbling just underneath his polite, solicitous demeanor. Britt Michael Gordon, who was so wonderful as the deaf son in a hearing family in Tribes, plays the mentally challenged half-brother, Jen, whos fascinated with guns and blood. His behaviors erratic and unpredictable. Carrie Lund makes the most of her role, the meek, quiet family nurse who seems to take special glee in taunting Jen, her eyes gleaming with delight. That scene is one of the plays highlights. Richards mother, Mrs. Warwick (Kate Young) seems almost bored by all the proceedings. Limping about on a cane, she reveals to another character that she doesnt have long to live and passes along a mysterious letter. Then theres the neighbor, a politician up for election who has secrets to hide. Hes played with great gravity by Brendan Powers. He and Mr. Breitbarth have a scene together full of suspense and drama, in which one threatens the well being of the other. And Ms. Robinson leaves us flipflopping: Should we pity her or fear her? Mr. Sumrall, as the poor motorist who stumbles upon the body, is the lone outsider; his character is a standin for the audience, as he is introduced to all the various characters of the Warwick household and its history. Act II moves much more quickly than the first act and even involves some humor, as the characters find themselves even more entangled with each other and their schemes. The audience not only laughed, but groaned and gasped through the performance as pertinent facts were revealed. Ms. Christies plot contains more twists than a road with hairpin turns. And Joseph Oshrys lighting and John Kiselicas sound design help make the experience even spookier. The play has some slow spots, yes, but the last minutes of The Unexpected Guest sent chills running up and down my spine. And who is the unexpected guest? Why, death itself. Who is the murderer? Youll have to see the play yourself to find out. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Unexpected Guest>> Where: Florida Repertory Theatre, Fort Myers >> When: Through Nov. 18 >> Cost: $45 and $49 >> Info: 332-4488 or oridarep.org VALERIE ROCHE / COURTESY PHOTOSLou Sumrall, Margaret Loesser Robinson and Brendan Powers in The Unexpected Guest. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 Whether you need a car, truck or van, Enterprise is the perfect choice. 1 800 rent-a-car enterprise.com Wh Pick-up subject to geographic and other restrictions. 2015 Enterprise Rent-A-Car G00131 8/15

CONTRACT BRIDGEA most improbable outcomeBY STEVE BECKEREveryone who plays bridge has his own harrowing tale of how he and his partner managed to collapse two sure tricks into one while defending a hand. It can happen in a variety of ways, and for a variety of reasons that might seem perfectly reasonable at the time especially if a particularly crafty declarer is at the helm. Consider todays deal where declarer lost only one trump trick with the defenders holding A-Q-J-92 of trumps! The triumph or tragedy, depending on which way you look at it began when South wound up in six spades following a sequence of bids too dreadful to repeat. West led the king of hearts, and South unhappily surveyed the dummy. Not one to give up easily, declarer concocted a scheme that at least gave him a chance to make the slam. All that was required was a very specific lie of the cards, a bit of deception and a gullible opponent but there was no harm in trying. So South won the heart lead with the ace, cashed the ace of diamonds and then led a low trump toward dummy, acting for all the world like a man with the singleton ace of diamonds. West couldnt bear the thought of Souths getting rid of his (presumed) heart loser on one of dummys top diamonds, so he climbed up with the ace of spades felling one of his partners honors and tried to cash the queen of hearts. South ruffed, led a spade to the king followed by a spade to the 10, and the party was over.

The Marco Players production, on stage through Nov. 22, is directed by Jim Corsica and stars actors who are new to the local stage. The tangled plot introduces husbandand-wife artists who concoct an elaborate plan to increase the value of their work. Jack Brooks (Paul McCreight), feeling the loss of his creative gifts, plans to deceive his art dealer (Robert Armstrong) into believing he has committed suicide in order to spark a posthumous publicity campaign to escalate the value of his paintings. Meanwhile, Jacks wife, Annie (Nancy Martin), has assumed her husbands artistic identity by creating paintings in his name. Relishing the idea that the bullying, manipulative Jack would be better off famous, productive and dead, she enlists the art dealer and the familys maid, Kate (Shelley Gothard), in a plot to murder her spouse and share the wealth as the Milli Vanilli of fine art. The Marco Players Theater is in the Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd. Performances of Art of Murder are at 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets for $25 and $28 are available by calling 642-7270 or by visiting themarcoplayers.com. Step one: Audition for one or more rolesThe Naples Players will hold auditions for The 39 Steps on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 28, at Sugden Community Theatre. No appointments are necessary. Three to five men are needed, one age 35-45 and the others 18 and older (playing multiple characters, including women). One or more women age 20-40 are also needed. All actors except the male lead play multiple roles. Adapted from the film by Alfred Hitchcock, The 39 Steps is a farce in which Richard Hannay is bored with life until he meets a mysterious female spy. When she ends up murdered in his apartment, he becomes the sole suspect and is launched into a madcap adventure that has 150 campy characters played by only four to six actors. The show calls for actors with a strong understanding of physical comedy who can play a wide array of eccentric characters. Ability to do accents is a plus. Rehearsals begin Dec. 14. Performance dates are Feb. 3-27. For more information, call 434-7340, ext. 10. Robert Armstrong as Vincent Cummings and Nancy Martin as Annie Brooks

It doesnt change hugely, but I think theres a little softening of the language for our modern ear, says director Julia Gibson. The women are really strong characters, and the men are more goofy. Additionally, the updated version focuses even more intently on the slapstick shenanigans on the stage, which helps audiences enjoy watching Bernard suffer without judging him at the same time. In the end, its a lot of innocent fun where weve seen people go to these ridiculous lengths and everything works out okay, Ms. Gibson says. Farces have been around forever and part of why we love them is that theyre so stupid, she adds. We take delight in seeing someone else suffer in this ridiculous way. Theres something innocent about it. To keep the emphasis on goofy fun, she refrained from directing the cast to do much interpretation. The work ends up being very physical and requires the actors to work out gags, pratfalls and timing instead of characterization. These arent deep-thinking characters, says Jeff Binder, who plays Bernards friend Robert. Its very much about the action. Laborious rehearsals can be brutal, but they are necessary in order to get the work to bounce happily along. The cast has been rehearsing for four weeks. With a farce, the first week is fun, the next two are brutal like the fog of war and then the fourth week it all starts to come together, Mr. Binder says. Its in your body, mind and heart enough you start to see how it can come together. Other cast members are Joey Sorge as Bernard; Jan Neuberger as Bernards housekeeper, Berthe; Christina DeCicco as the Italian fiance, Gabriella; Ashton Heyl as the German fiance, Gretchen; and Alexis Hyatt as the American fiance, Gloria.

Bush of not fulfilling his Texas Air National Guard duties in the 1970s. Its a smart, compelling drama featuring an excellent Ms. Blanchett that also calls into question the merit and needs for journalism today. Rated R.Rock The Kasbah 1/2(Bill Murray, Kate Hudson, Leem Lubany) A down-on-his-luck music manager (Mr. Murray) discovers a female Muslim singer (Ms. Lubany) and tries to get her on Afghan Star, the Afghani version of American Idol. The story goes in a number of directions, none of them wise. Rated R. Crimson Peak (Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska) In the early 1900s, Edith (Ms. Wasikowska) is wooed by Thomas (Mr. Hiddleston), seemingly not noticing how close he is to his sister (Ms. Chastain). 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.

We first meet legendary political strategist-turnedburnout Jane (Sandra Bullock) in the snowy mountains of North America, where shes visited by Ben (Anthony Mackie) and Nell (Ann Dowd), who work for the campaign of Bolivian presidential nominee Pedro Castillo (Joaquim de Almeida). Ben and Nell recruit Jane to work for the campaign, citing that her longtime rival Pat (Billy Bob Thornton) is working for the opposition. Jane demurs, but she accepts the job because if she didnt, there wouldnt be a movie. Once in La Paz, Bolivia, Jane doesnt want to be there. Why she accepted the job remains a mystery. Castillo is well behind in the polls, meaning a total strategy makeover is needed. The country is in crisis, Jane says, and it needs someone with Castillos experience to get out of it. We learn this approach during two rousing speeches she gives to the campaign team (which is out of character for Jane, given that she barely talks to anyone the first few days shes there). In the films few bright spots, political gamesmanship between Jane and Pat plays out in amusing ways, but theyre lighthearted moments in a movie that takes itself seriously. When it does deliberately try to have fun, such as during a showdown on campaign buses on winding mountain roads, it feels forced. Director David Gordon Green (Prince Avalanche), working from a script by Peter Straughn, clearly wants to say something meaningful about politics, elections and maintaining an ethical core in a profession that doesnt allow for one. But he never finds anything to say. Instead we have a few high-minded platitudes about doing ones job and not asking questions, and the common notion that campaigns shouldnt resort to negative advertising against opponents. All of this also begs the question of why the story takes place in Bolivia. Its a country of relatively little concern to most North Americans, and theres nothing unique about its location or politics that makes the storys circumstances inherently interesting. Given that mainstream American audiences arent typically drawn to political dramas from Bolivia, Id say the box office prospects here are minimal, even with Ms. Bullock in the lead. Setting the film in Bolivia becomes all the more surprising upon learning the story is partially based on a 2005 documentary of the same name made by Rachel Boynton. The doc was about United States political marketing campaigns, their tactics and the long-term consequences of said tactics. I havent seen it, but Im willing to guess Bolivia isnt mentioned once. Sometimes movies are head-scratchers. One imagines the suits at Warner Bros. saw Ms. Bullock in the lead and with a strong supporting cast and thought they had a movie they could sell. A close look at the script wouldve suggested otherwise. i ( s t t c dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> George Clooney, who is a producer of the lm, was originally set to play Billy Bob Thorntons role, but had to drop out.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESPut out patriotic collectibles to commemorate holidays BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELUse your collections to celebrate holidays like Veterans Day. Nov. 11, 1919, was the day chosen to commemorate the Armistice, the agreement signed the year before that ended World War I. The celebration, named Armistice Day, featured parades, meetings, a moment of silence, prayers and events that encouraged good will. It also included displays of the flag on all government buildings, schools, churches and other suitable places. The holiday was changed in 1954 to honor veterans of all wars and the name became Veterans Day. In 1968 a bill was passed, proclaiming that all national holidays will be celebrated on a Monday to make long holiday weekends. The public complained, and in 1978 Veterans Day was returned to the original Nov. 11 date. Collectors like to own and will pay extra for vintage pieces that picture the flag, Uncle Sam, Lady Liberty or any other patriotic symbols. During past decades, advertisers could alter a flag with a product name, claim an endorsement from the president, or use the symbols in ways that now are not considered politically correct. Union Leader Tobacco pictured Uncle Sam with stars and stripes in ads and on packages in the early 1900s. By 1920, they redesigned the package and replaced Uncle Sam with an eagle, probably because Uncle Sam had become old-fashioned. This is a clue to the age and value of the Union Leader tins, packages and signs collected today. On Nov. 11, display some vintage collectibles that praise veterans, especially those that show the flag or Uncle Sam. It is a day of remembrance, and objects from the past help us understand what we celebrate.Uncle Sam isnt usually pictured smoking a pipe, but this advertising poster from about 1910 is praising a tobacco product. Uncle Sam is reading a newspaper called the Naval Review that pictures battleships, suggesting that it might have been used during the war years. This 36-by-46-inch framed paper sign would appraise today for about $3,500.

Q: During World War II, my father was in the U.S. Navy and was stationed in Washington, D.C., in the photo lab under the direction of Edward Steichen. I have about 200 black-and-white photos depicting the war that were taken by Steichen and many of his handpicked photographers. I also have a letter addressed to my father thanking him for his service and signed by Steichen. I have the photos in archival pages and moisture-proof albums. Is there anything else I should be doing to preserve them? Is there any value to them? A: Edward Jean Steichen (1879-1973) was known for his portrait and fashion photos. He helped develop aerial photography during World War I and served as Director of the Naval Aviation Photographic Unit during World War II. His photos sell for high prices at auctions. Using archival pages and albums to store your photos helps preserve them. Make sure the albums dont contain PVC (polyvinyl chloride), which can damage photos. Dont store them in an attic, basement, or anywhere theyll be exposed to high temperatures or high humidity. The highest price realized for a photograph by Edward Steichen was $2,928,000 for a landscape in 2006. Q: I have a 25-cent stamp album issued for the purchase of a war savings bond during World War II. It took 75 stamps ($18.75) to fill the book. The book I have has $12.50 in stamps. Does this have any monetary value? A: World War II savings-bond stamp books were issued by the United States Treasury Department in 1942. Once the book was filled with stamps, it had to be held for 10 years before it could be exchanged at the post office for a $25 savings bond. Partially filled savings-bond booklets sell online for $5 to $15. You can redeem the stamps for their face value by filling out and submitting form PD F 1522. You can get the form at treasurydirect.gov by putting 522 in the Search box at the top of the page. Send the completed form to one of the addresses listed on it. Q: My husbands mother left us a handkerchief, 12 inches square, and framed. It is white silk, embroidered with the words Souvenir of the Great War within a circle of nine flags. The flags represent the U.S., Romania, Portugal, Italy, Serbia, Belgium, Great Britain, France and one I cant identify with a center red circle and red bands like rays. The handkerchief has 1 -inch-wide lace trim all around. We know nothing about it and would love some information. A: During the World Wars, many soldiers wanted souvenirs to bring or mail home to their mothers, wives and sweethearts. Embroidered silk and linen handkerchiefs were small, easy to carry and didnt disintegrate like paper letters. World War I souvenir handkerchiefs usually were handsewn, many with intricate colors, designs and lace. They were not to be used, but carried in a purse or pocket or framed and displayed. By World War II, most handkerchiefs were made from synthetic fabrics like nylon and printed by machine. Your handkerchief is from World War I, the Great War, and was made about 1917 or 1918. The flag you cant identify represented the Imperial Army of Japan. Handkerchiefs like yours sell between $50 and $75. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

For more information on the conference, visit fgcu. edu/siwc. Thanks again to everyone for writing. A New Perspective from an Old FriendBy Daniel Staesser, Fort MyersThirty-seven years. Thirteen thousand stale cups of convenience store coffee, the first several thousand black with the strength of youth, sl owly fa ding into the milky murk of middle age. Days all begun the same way out of habit and comfort. Hands hardened and etched with decades of doing, now unsure, grasping at a future defined by not doing. Harold Rebus sat at the precipice of retirement, staring into yet another cup of milky memories. As he stirred, something inside him also stirred. Can I getcha anything else, honey? the already weary waitress asked and then walked away at the familiar genial gesture for Check, please. Harold trailed one finger along the rim of his cup, unconsciously picking at gum underneath the table with his other hand. He had spent nearly every day of those 37 years with at least a small level of uncertainty. His days as an animal control officer in the sweltering sauna known as Orange County had each brought with them a new adventure. Some days found him responding to calls concerning various animal issues, from bites to cases of possible abuse. Other days left him patrolling dusty county roads to locate and pick up stray or injured animals. But these were uncertainties Harold could anticipate. He knew the challenges. The adverse weather and extreme climate. The on-call nature of the job. The sometimes venomous animals and clientele. These were all nemeses he had faced before. Retirement was a different beast altogether. It wasnt just the unknown; it was the prospect of redefining self after so many years of establishing an identity. What that identity was exactly, depended upon who you asked. Harold found himself woken from his reverie to the jingle-jangle of the front door. Up until this point, he had been sitting alone in the unfamiliar caf, a deliberate diversion from his usual routine of a gas station rendezvous. Today was, after all, his last day. At some point he had to face reality, embrace the change. Budget cuts were forcing him into an early retirement. Although, if someone were to ask his ex-wife, Joanne, it was at least a decade too late. Shed tired years before of what she had considered a career choice too riddled with perilous pursuits of boyish adventure. Harold took a much more pragmatic stance. Animals and humans had to coexist. It was his job to make sure that happened in a mutually beneficial way. Sure, there were times in his youth when his fervor was fueled by the danger involved, but truthfully, it was that same ardor that first attracted Joanne to him. He stood, slowly stretching the kinks and then thumbed through his wallet for a $5 bill. Dropped it on the table and walked out into the waiting, and somehow auspicious brightness of early morning. Mornin, Harry. His hip squelched on. We got a large gator off County Road 15, a little too close for comfort for a local goat farmer. Shes hissin up a storm. Need a relocate. Which was hissing? The gator or the farmer, he wondered. The radio fuzzed off. Harold rubbed his hands together and blew into them, a ritual borne over years of using these same hands to lift, pull, carry, and at times, caress animals caught in the throes accompanied by unchartered territory. It seemed only fitting that he breathe life into those same hands that would return life as they knew it to these animals. Roger that. Im on my way. Harold radioed back. He knew the route well. County Road 15 ran north and south through Orange and Osceola counties and was also known as Narcoossee Road. A few more directions squawked over the airwaves and he reached and pulled himself up into the cab of his half-ton Chevy Silverado, clicked his seatbelt into place, and hit the preset for his favorite station, the aptly-named Gator Country. His mind was somehow simultaneously filled and empty as he drove through the unknowns of Central Florida. That would soon change. Upon arrival on the scene, his mind suddenly became exceedingly more aware and focused on the task at hand. He could see the prehistoric beast straddling the edge of the gravel, and the equally agedlooking (and somehow contrarily nearly toothless) woman, wildly waving her arms and hollering in nondescript phrases. Harold took a deep breath, exhaled into his hands, and hopped out of the cab. The woman was a sight to behold. Overalls on top of an ill-fitting crop top. Large rubber galoshes that at one time must have been yellow. A sun hat that couldnt hide the expression on her face. You the extriminator? She piped. Im here to take care of the problem. Yes, maam. But Im not an exterminator. Im with Animal Control. Im here to relocate the reptile, if possible. Well, you do what you need to do. Aint nothin seemed to move her from her spot, and I aint bout to get too close, she added. She was maybe 6 feet long, but in the eyes of this woman, the gator was a huge obstacle to her livelihood. Harold knew he had to wait until help arrived. Even a gator this size posed a considerable threat, but to be honest, the woman worried him more than the gator. A couple of young bucks were on their way, dispatched shortly after Harold. He knew it wouldnt be long now. About 10 awkward minutes passed, seemingly as slowly as the nearly four decades he had spent in this profession. Finally, a truck pulled up. Two guys hopped out with poles and a bag in hand, tools of the trade. Harold held the tail, while the others jumped on the beasts back, taped her mouth closed and threw a bag over her head. The key to controlling a gator is controlling the head. Gators tend to calm down when they cant see, and contrary to the force with which they can close their mouths, it takes a lot less force to keep their mouth closed. Harold helped load her into his pickup. He insisted he take care of it, and the young guys didnt argue. One fewer thing to worry about. Normally protocol called for most gators 4 feet and under to be rereleased into the wild, and anything larger to be humanely killed. Something inside of Harold couldnt let the latter happen. In that 10 minutes of waiting, Harold had seen something familiar in her eyes. Here she was, in an area foreign to her, her world colliding with his. She didnt want to be here, any more than he wanted to retire. Both were facing so many unknowns. Both were standing at the threshold of something unfamiliar. No, he couldnt let that happen to her. Hed release her into the nearest large body of water, and into the murkiness that made so much sense to her. Maybe he could learn to embrace a little murkiness himself. A Door to the PastBy K.L. Scott, AlvaA warm wind rustled palm fronds on the secluded ten-acre property. Like everyone and everything along the Gulf Coast, the Old Florida home built there welcomed drier autumn air. The shadow of a female form was cast on the circular crushed shell driveway near a vintage Mustang convertible. She was focused on the car when the breeze loosened long silver hair from a faux tortoiseshell clasp at the nape of her neck. An errant strand pulled free and danced across her face until she tucked it beneath a seagrass hat shading thoughtful green eyes. Her embroidered cotton top then flutter ed and blew, but she was not distracted a second time. Maddie Hart rested her hands on denim-covered hips. She surveyed the six tattered bankers boxes shed squeezed into the trunk of her classic Ford. Each brimmed with decorative antiques and a few kitschy knick-knacks. Among the best pieces were hand-painted Bavarian porcelain, delicate French Limoges and colorful Midwestern pottery. They sat nestled alongside a collection of Chinese snuff bottles, three Staffordshire figurines and a small Tiffany lamp. A local dealer awaited their arrival for his upcoming auction and she needed to hurry. Confident she wouldnt regret parting with any attic finds or heirlooms, save a few items inside on the stairs, a slim sun-weathered hand reached atop shiny red metal. She shoved the lid downward, but the usual resulting click was replaced by an unpleasant metallic screech. Ever diligent, she tried the temperamental latch several times, but it consistently malfunctioned. An ironic thought amused her, Seems closing any sort of door on my past wont be that easy. Maddie strode toward the spacious garage she now deemed The Disaster Area. Her typical penchant for organization had not been a priority of late. After locating a plastic bag of bungie cords, she returned to the trunk and fashioned a closure. Once the heavy elastic spider web was roadworthy, she slipped into the drivers seat, pressed the key and started the engine. With over 50 years behind her, she was an independent self-assured woman, always a help to others and undeniably fair in her dealings. Those parts of her character were what others admired most. Still, when pressed to anger or frustration, she was not to be trifled with by man or machine. At least thats how she described herself, until recent events intervened. They had changed her. They had changed everything. Death had a way of doing that. A scattering of dried leaves wafted skyward behind her as she accelerated onto asphalt. Forty minutes later, she opened a glass-paneled pine door with its sunlit arc of painted bronze letters: Ben Levys Antiques. Maddie traversed the store to find its lanky owner ladder high hanging art while simultaneously chatting on his cell. He saw her and winked, but not wanting to interrupt, she headed curbside and started unloading. For reasons Maddie didnt initially grasp, when the three most important people in her life died within weeks of each other, Ben had become her confidant. Their business dealings gave way to cathartic conversations and a true friendship emerged like spun gold from straw. Theyd talked about her grandmother, the noble family matriarch whod instilled a love of collectibles; then the death of her troubled mother; and finally, the unexpected passing of her well-known husband, a city director and leader of the controversial local school board.

David was also a public official and Ben understood how real emotions stayed hidden in such situations. One had to be strong for a shocked constituency; they came first. They, too, were grieving. Maddie removed the last box from her car and placed it behind the cash register. Still on the phone, Ben tilted his head to motion her over, but Maddie tapped a finger to her watch. He nodded and waved as she went out the door. The days gentle weather beckoned a trip to the beach, but after a brief stop at her drycleaners and the downtown farmers market, she headed home. Despite clever procrastination, a task there required her full attention. Winding her car along a riverside backroad, Maddie glanced at the heartbreaking reason for her predicament. Peeking out of her handbag on the passenger seat was a list of nine names written by her late husband, Mack. With only days left to live, hed asked her to contact each person after his funeral and thank them for the way theyd touched his life. Maddie promised without hesitation, until she read the list itself. Four names had helped him in business or politics, three with his prestigious university position, one with his eventual conversion to Catholicism. None of the names raised an issue, except the last that name required an explanation and Maddie wasnt sure shed wanted to hear it. She recalled Macks bleak hospital room and what transpired against a backdrop of beeping monitors and fading hope. Why do you want me to contact Hunter? she asked, silently reading the name of the brilliant artist shed loved decades before. Between labored breaths her ill husband explained, Because it was Hunter who made us possible. He started it all. He was the reason we got together. Maddie shook her head softly, certain that powerful painkillers were corrupting Macks thoughts. But shed been wrong. No, my love, he continued. Its true. After you two broke up, Hunter encouraged me to ask you out. At that time in his life, he said you were more right for me than him. But whatever went wrong between you, know this: he wanted nothing more than for you to be happy, Madelyn always happy. Mack was never unkind when he used her given name, but a small part of her felt like chattel. The rest of her, however, felt more cherished than she ever dreamed possible. So, let me get this straight you two men had a private conversation I never knew about until now? She looked into eyes that begged a wifes forgiveness. And youve kept this secret for over 30 years? Yes, he answered, his voice almost inaudible, thank him for me. Lost in remembrance, Maddie nearly missed her driveway. She was still daydreaming of Hunter and reliving how theyd parted. Shed refused to give up law school when he left town to travel the world and paint. Her decision seemed shallow and unsupportive in hindsight, made more so by his success without her. Hunters works were owned by famous collectors in countless countries; information offered over the years via well-meaning friends, all sure shed want to know every excruciating detail. She didnt. It only made her life a melancholy fusion of somber days and sleepless nights. She parked the car and gathered armfuls of fresh food and clothing. Once inside, she let everything slide from her grasp and sat on the entry hall stairs. She touched the delicate keepsakes shed refused to sell, including the sweet blue satin doll. Theyd all been gifts from Hunter. Just like my marriage, she said aloud to no one. Maddie walked across the hardwood floor to her office. Shed found Hunters studio on the web months earlier, but delayed contacting him. Her courage had been fickle, but no longer. Earlier that morning shed crafted a nonchalant paragraph with a casual greeting, then asked for his latest address. She intended to send something his way. Now, she awaited an answer. Her hands hovered above the keyboard. Her mind conjured the image of an athletic, handsome young artist with blonde hair, blue eyes and a quick acerbic wit. Hed been a kaleidoscope of creativity, culture and passion, a true Renaissance man, an impressive creature placed among mere mortals. Maddie conveniently forgot his reckless ways and the bouts of self-destruction. She also forgot the emotional pain hed caused her. All that had been whisked away by one secret, selfless act. She logged into her computer, clicked on the site and warned herself not to expect too much. Like a silly schoolgirl, Maddie bit her lip and held her breath. She touched the Enter key, blinked and there it was. Dispatched through the ether, a single sentence that would forever change her life once more: I want to see you still a lot of l ove, Hunter. Maddie smiled and suddenly understood one of lifes most profound karmic truths: a door to the past may also be a door to the future.

CELEBRITY EXTRABlood and Oil may dry up soon BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I love ABCs new series Blood and Oil. The actor who plays Don Johnsons son in the drama looks familiar. What else has he done? Eric P., Lancaster, Penn sylv aniaA: Scott Michael Foster is the fellow youre thinking of. The 30-year-old actor was a regular on Greek, spent a season on Californication as Beccas boyfriend and appeared in Once Upon a Time and Chasing Life. Now he plays Hap Briggs (Don Johnson) neer-do-well son, Wick, on the nighttime sudster. He recently wrapped on the feature film My Dead Boyfriend. Despite the star power of Mr. Johnson, Amber Valletta and Chace Crawford, ABC recently announced it has cut back its original order of Blood and Oil from 13 episodes to 10, which could mean that this first season of Blood and Oil very well might be its last if there isnt a drastic upturn in its ratings. Look for season one to air its finale in December. Q: I just found Mike and Molly on reruns, and I love the show. Please tell me it has not been canceled. If not, when will it return for a new season? Tony O. in FloridaA: The hit CBS sitcom starring Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell will be back for a sixth season. While the network (as of this writing) has not announced a premiere date, it will be toward the end of this year. Q: Can you give me an update on Masterpiece Mysterys Sherlock? Diana T., via emailA: Season four of the series doesnt start shooting until spring 2016, but we do have a TV special to tide us over. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprise their roles for Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, a 90-minute movie that premieres Jan. 1, 2016, in both the U.S. and U.K. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803; or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I know Ive grown as a person since I discovered the myriad blessings of pineapple marinated pork in a soft corn tortilla. Higher consciousness is possible, my friends, and it all depends on finding the right ratio of sw eet pig to nutty corn, cilantro, onions and guacamolillo sauce (in this instance). Felipes got the combination just right, and Ill certainly be headed back to indulge again and again. You cant beat that price, either. One More Thing: Guacamolillo, according to yummly.com, is a variation on guacamole that includes tomatillos and sour cream with the avocado. Its good. Have some. Lindsey Nesmith email@example.com

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Bar Tulia, 462 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 228-7606 Do you love Chef Vincenzo Bertulias Osteria Tulia? Then you ought to try his second concept: Bar Tulia, a gastropub right next door. Here you can dine on small plates, pizzas, house-made sausage and other items that appeal to the creative chef in a rustic yet hip atmosphere thats clearly gained a following. Even the drinks are creative, like the pigalle, a refreshing blend of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, prosecco, soda and lemon, and a Hurricane with three kinds of rum, passion fruit, bitters, grenadine and lime. Graze your way through the menu as we did: a generous plate of fresh ceviche; grilled octopus on greens and fingerling potatoes; a perfectly rendered pizza with house-made mozzarella and tomato sauce with fresh basil; grilled house sausage atop stewed white beans; deviled eggs with smoked trout roe; and a full-sized entre of salmon with roasted carrots and beets. For dessert: Try the Sicilian waffle with caramelized bananas and maple bourbon almond truffle. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 The Bay House, 799 Walkerbilt Road, Naples; 591-3837 Seated in the dining room gazing out on the tranquil mangrove-lined Cocohatchee River, it's hard to believe U.S. 41 is just yards away. The grand view is matched by superb food and polished service. Executive Chef Andy Hunter and his team do a masterful job of showcasing fresh seafood with a nod to carnivores. An appetizer called South of Broad features perfectly cooked fried green tomatoes, tangy goat feta, basil puree and tomato jam. A roasted beet and citrus salad with a delicious horseradish panna cotta, was an equally good start. The Coastal Pan Roast featured golden tilefish, shrimp, a Tampa devil crab, Carolina gold rice, baby vegetables, corn pudding and red wine sauce. Seafood pirlau, a Low Country version of bouillabaisse, contained scallops, shrimp, mussels, an outstanding housemade seafood sausage in a mild seafood brandade served with seafood fumet on the side. Florida Sunshine goat cheese cheesecake with pink grapefruit gelee and pools of blood orange and lemon curd, finished with tangy lime granita, was an excellent end to a top-notch meal. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2014 Kitchen 41, 3500 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 263-8009 Sous-vide is a well-known cooking technique in France and one gaining popularity in the U.S., but chef/owner Domenico Bosco takes it to the max with a menu that is almost entirely produced by this ultrahealthy method. Food is sealed in BPA-free plastic bags, submerged in a water bath then cooked at a low temperature for an extended period, sealing in flavor and vitamins. Chef Bosco also shuns processed foods, MSG, GMOs and frying. The results are healthy and flavorful. They can take a while to arrive at the table, however, so stop here only when you have time to linger. The wild-caught sea scallops atop creamy pureed lima beans, studded with golden raisins and yellow and red roasted peppers, were excellent. Smoked salmon with avocado, hearts of palm and cucumber was first-rate as well. Lamb chops with a touch of demi-glace were just right and the wild-caught halibut was moist and flaky, although it might have benefitted from sauce to enhance its mild flavor. A slice of gluten-free ricotta pie with mixedberry compote provided a satisfying sweet endnote. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2015 Pizza Fusion, The Gateway of Naples Shopping Center, 2146 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 262-8111 Pizza Fusion's food tastes good, and the burgeoning eco-friendly franchise does good at the same time, offering a menu thats 75 percent organic, with vegan and gluten-free options available and easily identified on the menu. While pizza gets a starring role here, there are other worthy contenders, including the zucchini al forno (zucchini stuffed with walnuts, breadcrumbs and bell pepper) and salads such as the pear and gorgonzola with a vibrant balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Pizzas come in two sizes personal and large. We liked the Greek, a mix of kalamata olives, roma tomatoes, organic tomato sauce, feta, parsley, mozzarella and provolone on a crisp multigrain crust. Dont skip dessert: The fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies are divine. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2014 Tarpon Bay, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, 5001 Coconut Road, Bonita Springs; 444-1234 One of this resort restaurants signature features is the ceviche bar, which serves up eight variations in flights. Our favorite paired rough-chopped scallops with thinly sliced celery and radishes laced with lemony oil; fennel pollen added a lovely hint of anise to complement the sweet shellfish and peppery radishes. Eight a la carte fish varieties are offered with choice of eight sauces; a wahoo steak with corn and pepper emulsion was perfectly moist and flaky with a smoky sweet sauce that enhanced the mild fish. Sides are $4 extra, whether you choose mascarpone and sweet corn risotto or house fries. From the signature dishes, the Tarpon seafood linguini was a highlight loaded chunks of moist grouper, small clams, several large shrimp and lots of bay scallops. Full bar.

The Los Angeles resident is back in Southwest Florida this month for a couple of appearances. On Saturday, Nov. 14, hell serve as a celebrity judge in the Best of Bacon contest at BaconFest 2015, which runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Naples Airport South Terminal Lawn, 526 Terminal Drive. More details are at baconfestnaples. com. Then on Sunday, Nov. 15, Mr. Peltz will headline the Learn! Laugh! Eat! Celebrity Chef Series sponsored by Good Deals Appliances Elite and Cornerstone Design Center. Hell be preparing exclusive threecourse meals at 1 and 5 p.m.; seats are $75 and can be reserved at celebritychefseries. com. Although hes not a formally trained chef, Mr. Peltz got an early start in the kitchen. I didnt really have a choice. My brother and I had a babysitter who couldnt make the blue box of mac and cheese, he says. So, at 7 years old, I got a stepstool out and made dinner. Needless to say, she was fired. Mr. Peltz took a break from his whirlwind schedule to answer a few questions for Florida Weekly. Q: Did growing up in Southwest Florida have an impact on your food sensibilities? A: When I was really young, we would go to this restaurant called Moorings. Its a New England seafood restaurant in Cape Coral. I remember the owner would come around and gather all the kids, and walk us around the restaurant so we could see everything. He would show us all the cooks working in the kitchen, and then he would give us Icey-pops you know, the ones where you have to cut the top off and the plastic scrapes the corners of your mouth? It was cool. That was my favorite place to go every time we went out. I dont remember if the food was amazing or not, but I do remember getting to tour the restaurant, the owner being so cool and getting a free popsicle. Q: Youd been working as a musician before MasterChef. How do you balance being a chef and being a drummer? A: Honestly, food is winning right now. I fill in the days that Im not cooking with music. I have always been in the back, playing drums, supporting the band. Now, being a chef, its like Im the lead singer, and Im loving that position. Q: Are they completely separate, or do you see a relation between the two worlds? A: Music and food are extremely parallel, and those parallels make being a chef come easily to me. I am applying the mentality of being a professional musician to being a chef. When Im in the kitchen, I constantly have music running through my head. And its never just one genre of music. On MasterChef, when we had to cook Gordon Ramsay a perfect New York strip, I had Katy Perrys Roar in my head the whole time. Q: Who are your idols when it comes to drumming? A: Travis Barker (Blink 182, Boxcar Racer, Steve Aoki) has always been my biggest inspiration. I also love Carter Beauford of Dave Mathews Band. The guy does stuff that makes you want to just stop playing drums. Q: How do you approach creating a new recipe and presenting it? What inspires you? A: Being self-taught, I dont know how other chefs do it. I just do what comes naturally to me. I start with an ingredient, say, the protein. Then I decide how I want the dish to look on the plate, visually. Then I use supporting ingredients that will work with the protein, to make my vision come to life. If that means I need to transform an ingredient to get it to look a certain way, then that is what I have to do. So, basically, I start with a finished product and work backward. Q: Even under the best circumstances, cooking competition shows on TV look so stressful. Adding Gordon Ramsay of Hells Kitchen fame to the mix seems like throwing gas on the fire. What made you want to enter that arena? A: Gordon asked me in the finale, You love pressure, dont you? My response was, Yes. Its what makes me feel alive. I felt at home in that kitchen from day one. I truly try to not let stress into my body. For me, stress is a choice, and I chose to find my calm amongst the pressure. So with that mentality, I became focused on what was going to be positive and create forward movement. Q: Were you confident you would make it to the finals? A: My first phone call from casting, I told them I was going to win. My goal was to be in every episode, and be the one to beat. Q: You came so close to winning the title, coming in second place. What went through your head when Ramsay called Claudia Sandovals name? A: I am so happy for Claudia. I felt so confident about the food I made in the finale, that the outcome truly didnt matter. Define win. I feel like the Adam Lambert of MasterChef. Q: Youre going to be a guest judge at this years BaconFest Naples charity event. Does bacon really make everything better? A: Im excited to be a judge at this event. Bacon can make a lot of things better, but if you use it wrong I am going to tell you! Q: Whats next for you? A: So many exciting things. My life has been nothing but a high, before and after MasterChef, and I know that momentum will continue. Im developing a TV show for a network with myself as the host. Im also developing a web series with Stephen Lee. Im traveling and appearing at numerous events, restaurants and other venues. And I also have some international gigs in the works. I live in Los Angeles, and this city breeds creativity. As an artist, my thoughts and ideas are non-linear. I want to explore all the opportunities I can in this life. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Derrick Peltz>> Age: 29 >> Hometown: Fort Myers >> Culinary education: Self-taught >> Website: derrickpeltz.com COURTESY PHOTODerrick Peltz

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYD4 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 Sienna Reserve Already 50 Percent Sold Prices begin at $609,000This is an exciting time at Sienna Reserve, a gated, single-family community being developed by Zuckerman Homes on Livingston Road in North Naples. Currently at Sienna Reserve three models are in various stages of construction with the first due to open by December. Ten residential homes are also under construction. The entire road system is in. The freshwater lake has its fountain centerpiece. The perimeter landscaping has been installed. And one of the fountains in the center of a brick paved roundabout is operational. Theres activity taking place from one end of the community to the other, stated Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes, a fourth-generation, family-run, custom homebuilding company which started in 1924. Sienna Reserve will only have 45 homes upon build-out. The first model hasnt even opened yet and already the community has hit the 50 percent sold mark. Our North Naples location, combined with the communitys offering of only 45 luxury custom homes, has really caught the imagination of families in all age groups, said Zuckerman. Our purchasers also like the fact that only 14 of Sienna Reserves 30 acres will actually be developed. The remaining 16 acres will be comprised of a freshwater lake and a pristine, untouched nature preserve. Of the eight floor plans offered at Sienna Reserve three will be available to tour as models. The first model to be completed will be the Hibiscus. Its a single-story, three-bedroom plus study/three-bath home with 2,566 square feet under air and 3,378 total square feet including a side-entry, two-car garage. The study can be converted into a fourth bedroom. The two other models are the Magnolia Flex and the Rosewood. The Magnolia Flex is a two-story, fourbedroom plus game room and media room/three full-bath/two half-bath home with 4,004 square feet under air and 4,855 total square feet including a two-car garage. This plan is extremely popular because the master suite is the only bedroom on the first floor and has its own laundry room off the luxurious master bath. The Rosewood is a two-story, fivebedroom plus study and club room/fiveand-a-half-bath home with 4,971 square feet under air and 5,997 total square feet including a side-entry, three-car garage. In this floor plan the first-floor study can be converted into a parlor. The five remaining floor plans include the Hibiscus II, the Jasmine I and II, the Magnolia and the Poinciana. The oneand two-story homes range in size from 2,344 to 4,135 square feet under air and have either three, four or five bedrooms with the majority also having a study. Some larger homes also offer a game room, a media room or a clubroom with one offering a game room and a media room. All homes can be customized to fit an owners lifestyle. Prices at Sienna Reserve begin at $609,000. All purchasers at Sienna Reserve will be eligible to receive complementary access to Tiburon Golf Club amenities on the same basis as a Medallion Member while their home is being built. Those future residents, upon moving into their new home, then have the option to purchase a Tiburon Golf Club Membership. The fact Sienna Reserve is a small community has been a major selling point according to Zuckerman. In many cases bigger is not always better. Our research indicates buyers are looking for a more intimate community to call home. A place close to the city, yet in harmony with nature. A place where neighbor knows neighbor. Thats exactly what we deliver, he said. He continued, Our buyers are a diverse group, but they have at least one thing in common they like the fact Sienna Reserve offers eight floor plans with sixteen different elevations, all of which can be fully-customized. Zuckerman Homes welcomes their future residents to customize their home something usually only offered in communities priced much higher. A fact that makes Zuckerman Homes very unique. Everyones lifestyle is different. They have different needs. They have different interests. They have different tastes, said Zuckerman. As a familyrun building company no one knows that better than we do. So, well do everything we can to customize a home to our buyers specifications. Sienna Reserves locations has been another major selling point. It is close to downtown Naples and its worldrenowned shopping districts of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. Its also within minutes of Mercato, one of the most popular upscale shopping centers in Southwest Florida. In addition, Sienna Reserve is close to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, the Naples Pier, fine restaurants, Germain Arena, the site for many sporting and entertainment events, and the Southwest Florida International Airport. Sienna Reserve is also an enjoyable walk from one of the premier parks in the county, the North Collier Regional Park. It has walking trails and boardwalks for wildlife viewing, fishing lakes for catch and release, a fitness center complex, a world-class childrens museum, soccer and softball fields, an interactive playground and a fossil dig play area for children, explained Zuckerman. Sienna Reserve is located on Livingston Road, between Vanderbilt Beach Road and Immokalee Road in North Naples. The Sienna Reserve sales center is open Monday Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday, 11 am to 6 pm. Additional information is available by calling (239) 643-4333, visiting SiennaReserve.com, or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Meet your Model Match at MediterraIt could be called the Mediterra model effect. Build and furnish luxury model homes, and buyers will come, eager to move in as soon as possible and enjoy the lifestyle of Collier Countys ninetime Community of the Year. From its bougainvillea-laced pergola entry leading to a landscaped roundabout with a grand fountain and intimate neighborhoods of tree-shaded streets and even a European-inspired village of lakefront villas, Mediterra is also a place where knowing your neighbors is an important part of the lifestyle. London Bay Homes has translated six of its floor plans at Mediterra into luxurious model homes that give visitors a true sense of home and community. Featuring professional interiors by Romanza Interior Design, the homes capture luxury living at Mediterra, Naples premier golf and beach club community. Six additional models are currently under construction, with two expected to open by years end. Most of our furnished model homes in Mediterra sold shortly before or after completion for the past two years, said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes, Naples leading luxury homebuilding company for 25 years. Last season we had very few model homes open to visitors because buyers wanted to move right in and enjoy Mediterras amenities and lifestyle. We made a concerted effort this summer to open new models before the winter season. The completed models include the Delfina estate home in Mediterras soldout Serata neighborhood and five luxury maintenance-free villa homes. The Delfina, a four-bedroom estate home replaces the original model, which sold within weeks of completion. The home has been designed with attention-getting details: a game room, a TV that pops up from a built-in credenza, and a large wrap-around outdoor living area catering to the sought-after alfresco lifestyle. The 4,329-square-foot floor plan features formal dining and living rooms and integrates leisure and game rooms into a large space for casual gatherings and entertainment. Interior finishes include wood flooring, custom ceiling and wall treatments, and turquoise and magenta accents throughout. The Delfinas large outdoor living areas include, a covered verandah, lanai, and seating around a fire pit. Majestic palm trees flank the cobblestone driveway and the entry walkway inside a low-walled courtyard at the Girona, London Bays most popular floor plan in Mediterra. Featuring three bedrooms, a formal dining room, study and open great room, the model is located in the Cortile neighborhood. The current model, one of six built since 2012, sold on leaseback a week before completion and will remain open until December 2015. The home offers 3,526 square feet of living area, a palette of gray and ivory accented with papaya, special ceiling treatments, and an infinity-edge pool finished in pebble black accented with black glass mosaic tiles. The Eloro and Capriano models are found in the scenic Lucarno neighborhood, a European-inspired village of 71 lakefront villas accented with tile, stone entry walls and authentic Old World architectural features. The three-bedroom Eloro balances large gathering areas with more intimately scaled spaces. The openness of the oversized great room/dining area and adjoining kitchen are heightened by volume beamed ceilings and walleliminating glass doors that pocket open to the outdoor living room, which has a fully equipped summer kitchen. Design features include neutraland linen-hued backgrounds accented with dashes of paprika, citrine and smoke. The luxury villa also has a study, three full baths and a powder room within 3,380 square feet of interior living space. The Capriano, recently awarded Product Design of the Year and Best Pool Design, is shown as a two-story villa featuring rustic wood floors and beamed ceilings balanced by a vibrant palette of bright blues, greens, yellows, and weathered wood blended with metal, mirrored and silver finishes. The 4,402-square-foot villas open floor plan unravels from the foyer, sweeping from great room, dining area and kitchen out sliding glass doors to an alfresco living room, where a trio of arches frame views of the pool, fireplace and lake. The model sold on leaseback and is open for viewing through June 2016. Two additional Capriano models are currently under construction, scheduled to be completed Spring 2016. Nearby in Cabreo, a 23-home neighborhood surrounded by lakes, nature preserves and Mediterras illustrious gardens, are the three-bedroom, fully furnished Bettina and Angelica maintenance-free models. Vivid shades of turquoise, glass green and gray pop against soft tans of tile flooring, painted walls and light wood furniture, creating a sophisticated costal theme throughout the 3,101-square-foot Bettina. The model also offers a formal dining room and den and is shown with a summer kitchen, a pool and raised spa. The 2,810-square-foot Angelica includes designer finishes and stainless steel kitchen appliances selected by Romanza. The home features pops of burnt orange and crimson, oak and animal print in a cheetah themed rug in the main living area. The Angelica is offered at $1,230,000. London Bay Homes is nearing completion of two additional model homes: The Belita Two-Story, a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath villa in Lucarno offering 3,738 square feet, and the Isabella Two-Story, an expanded version of the builders popular Isabella estate floor plan in Serata. The Belita Two-Story offers a family room, formal dining room, study and a second floor with a loft. It is expected to be completed in December. The new four-bedroom, five-bath Isabella design features a larger ground floor plus a second story offering a loft, wet bar, and guest suite. The home has a study and formal dining room within 4,265 square feet. Outdoors, views of the lake are complimented by the expansive pool with sun shelf and six laminar jets, and a raised spa with spillway. Enhanced features include a concrete linear Corinthian-style fire table on the pool deck. The model is expected to be complete in January. All of the companys homes are built using the latest information, products and technology available in building science, including the BEP Blue Barrier system that protects against mold issues and structural damage from moisture intrusion.

Construction begins on Kalea Bay high-riseConstruction has begun on the first of five residential highrises planned for Kalea Bay, a gated, resort-style community being developed by Soave Real Estate on Vanderbilt Drive, north of Wiggins Pass Road, in North Naples. 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.
