Ancient one, crusty old thing, old geezer, old codger, old fart. Geriatric, golden ager, pensioner. At the daily newspapers where I once worked family papers they called them writers were not supposed to use the term old, or any other term like it, to refer to people who had lived long enough to go over the hill. Come to think of it, you werent supposed to call a dead person dead, either. Instead, the rules required us to use such words as senior or elderly or even mature, or perhaps a euphemism like seasoned. In Collier County that etiquette is clumsy, since our current population of about 318,500 includes 85,350 who are 65 or older 26.8 percent, according to U.S. Census Bureau statistics. If youre telling Southwest Florida stories or any Florida stories youre frequently going to have to describe old people, in other words. The look-away rules dont apply just to newspapers, either. As everybody knows, theres a tacit cultural imperative directed at all of us to look away from old age. Ive always wondered why. Why do we pussyfoot around old either the term or the reality? Most or all of the old people I know arent deceived by the face in the mirror or the ache in the back or the date on the calendar or the many harsher realities that come with surviving youth and middle age and moving on. (Middle age defined literally, by the way, would be roughly 38 for white males in America, and a little less for black males. And it would be almost 41 for white females an a bit younger for black females.) Instead, younger people worry about old either being it or becoming it. Baby boomers, for example, often tend to be hypersensitive about references to their age. But old people usually seem to be able to handle both the tag and the reality.In general, our sensibilities about being old are riven with prejudice prejudice, meaning simply to pre-judge something. Younger people dont have enough experience with older people, so they prejudge them or misjudge them. When I was very young, my parents refused to look away from the notion or the reality of old, fortunately for me. Even so, most old people passed through my days only occasionally, like stately ships or slow, grand cars tha t sputte red a lot. Sometimes I enjoyed it, and sometimes I didnt. I remember kissing my great aunts, three of them who came from Kentucky and lived together all their lives, only with reluctance. They powdered their cheeks and beamed at my approach, lining up to present those cheeks with a warm formality that had to end in lips (mine) on soft wrinkled flesh (theirs). And I used to go with my parents to a nursing home to visit Auntie Witherspoon, because my mother insisted. The old lady won my admiration by dispensing with ceremonies of the cheek and asking me straight out, Did you shoot any rabbits? The last time I saw her she lay flat on her back, a woman so old that the geography of her face had become canyons and gullies and arroyos, and the teeth in her mouth only memories. But that didnt stop her from throwing up both her arms like a rifleman when she asked the question, and grinning at me toothlessly. The place smelled like urine, of course, and it took me years to separate that reality from the wonderful woman she was. And one of the last times I saw her brother-in-law, a rancher named Billy Witherspoon thin as a rail, brown as an Indian, old as the hills he stepped out of his cabin and shot a rabbit with a slingshot, then gave me some hard candy. My grandmother, on the other hand (she came from Kentucky with her sisters but raised seven children on a cattle ranch), was too familiar for me to call old. When I climbed in her bed in the mornings, she made sounds old ladies make, then told me to quit rustling around. In her flower-print dress, she chopped wood with an axe, cooked trout I caught on a wood-burning stove and roasted the grouse or rabbits we shot sometimes. Later, my grandfather gone, she traveled overseas to see what they did there to South America to visit ranchers, to New Zealand, Greece, Japan and Israel. She was unsentimental and kind and broad-minded and eternally cheerful. Somehow, those experiences and a herd of others have led to my present revulsion at the distance weve placed our own old from us at the way we pretend not to see them, at the way we so frequently fail to slow down for them, thus squandering a measureless wealth of knowing. We might as well ignore a rich bank account sitting available in our names, or throw away our maps and compasses while wandering the deep woods.We refuse to call them old when they are. We fail to celebrate their extraordinary beauty, both physically and mentally. We shield our children from them simply by making no extra effort to include old people in the lives of young people, no matter what they look like or smell like or sound like or think like. All of its just boneheaded and lazy and selfish, as I see it.Theyre old. And theyre beautiful though not always easy to understand, not always right, not always companionable. But here in this space, I can call them old. And feel grateful to know them today. And force my boys to spend time in their company, kissing their cheeks and looking at the lined leather of their faces and hearing their stories, whether they want to or not. And then I can become one myself, perhaps, with a sure sense of the direction home having watched them mark the trail all my life.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 OPINION President Barack Obama signed a slew of bills into law during the lame-duck session of Congress and was dubbed the Comeback Kid amidst a flurry of fawning press reports. In the hail of this surprise bipartisanship, though, the one issue over which Democrats and Republicans always agree, war, was completely ignored. The war in Afghanistan is now the longest war in U.S. history, and 2010 has seen the highest number of U.S. and NATO soldiers killed. As of this writing, 497 of the reported 709 coalition fatalities in 2010 were U.S. soldiers. The website iCasualties.org has carefully tracked the names of these dead. There is no comprehensive list of the Afghans killed. But one thing thats clear: Those 497 U.S. soldiers, under the command of the Comeback Kid, wont be coming back. On Dec. 3, Commander in Chief Obama made a surprise visit to his troops in Afghanistan, greeting them and speaking at Bagram Air Base. Bagram is the air base built by the Soviet Union during that countrys failed invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. Now run by U.S. forces, it is also the site of a notorious detention facility. On Dec. 10, 2002, almost eight years to the day before Obama spoke there, a young Afghan man named Dilawar was beaten to death at Bagram. The ordeal of his wrongful arrest, torture and murder was documented in the Oscarwinning documentary by Alex Gibney, Taxi to the Dark Side. Dilawar was not the only one tortured and killed there by the U.S. military. Obama told the troops: We said we were going to break the Talibans momentum, and thats what youre doing. Youre going on the offense, tired of playing defense, targeting their leaders, pushing them out of their strongholds. Today we can be proud that there are fewer areas under Taliban control, and more Afghans have a chance to build a more hopeful future. Facts on the ground contradict his rosy assessment from many different directions. Maps made by the United Nations, showing the risk-level assessments of Afghanistan, were leaked to The Wall Street Journal. The maps described the risk to U.N. operations in every district of Afghanistan, rating them as very high risk, high risk, medium risk and low risk. The Journal reported that, between March and October 2010, the U.N. found that southern Afghanistan remained at very high risk, while 16 districts were upgraded to high risk. Areas deemed low risk shrank considerably. And then there are the comments of NATO spokesman Brig. Gen. Joseph Blotz: There is no end to the fighting season. ... We will see more violence in 2011. Long before WikiLeaks released the trove of U.S. diplomatic cables, two key documents were leaked to The New York Times. The Eikenberry cables, as they are known, were two memos from Gen. Karl Eikenberry, the U.S. ambassador in Afghanistan, to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, urging a different approach to the Afghan War, with a focus on providing development aid instead of a troop surge. Eikenberry wrote of the risk that we will become more deeply engaged here with no way to extricate ourselves, short of allowing the country to descend again into lawlessness and chaos. A looming problem for the Obama administration, larger than a fraying international coalition, is the increasing opposition to the war among the public here at home. A recent Washington Post/ ABC News poll found that 60 percent believe the war has not been worth fighting, up from 41 percent in 2007. As Congress reconvenes, with knives sharpened to push for what will surely be controversial budget cuts, the close to $6 billion spent monthly on the war in Afghanistan will increasingly become the subject of debate. As Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz repeatedly points out, the cost of war extends far beyond the immediate expenditures, with decades of decreased productivity among the many traumatized veterans, the care for the thousands of disabled veterans, and the families destroyed by the death or disability of loved ones. He says the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will ultimately cost between $3 trillion and $5 trillion. One of the main reasons Barack Obama is president today is that by openly opposing the U.S. war in Iraq, he won first the Democratic nomination and then the general election. If he took the same approach with the war in Afghanistan, by calling on U.S. troops to come back home, then he might truly become the Comeback President in 2012 as well. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 800 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier, recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.The comeback kid and the kids who wontThe text of ObamaCare is dry and legalistic, except when it summons the majesty of the King James Bible to intone imperiously, the secretary shall ... The secretary in question is the secretary of health and human services, Kathleen Sebelius, who shall and may do all manner of things to complete the great unfinished canvas that is ObamaCare. As George W. Bush might say, Sebelius is the decider. In the discretion shes granted to remake American health care, she rivals Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey as the most powerful woman in America.The New York Times reported the other week that HHS has created a version of the death panels, in Sarah Palins famous coinage, that were stripped out of the law after an uproar in 2009. Why did we bother having that fight, with all its fiery accusations, if Kathleen Sebelius and her underlings could simply act at their discretion? Our civics textbooks tell us we have a system of representative government, accountable to the peop le, to adjudicate just such intensely contested questions. The textbooks are wrong they fail to account for the Rule of Sebelius. Her HHS decided Medicare will cover endof-life consultations as part of ObamaCares annual wellness visits. Sebelius not only gets to make this call, she gets to don the Dick Cheney Shroud of Secrecy to do it. As The New York Times notes: Congressional supporters of the new policy, though pleased, have kept quiet. They fear provoking another furor. Ah, yes, the danger of public information: It might crimp the work of Kathleen Sebelius. Philip Klein of The American Spectator counted 700 references in ObamaCare to the secretary shall, 200 to the secretary may and 139 to the secretary determines. Last month, HHS announced that premium increases over 10 percent next year are unreasonable. It earlier had warned insurers it would have zero tolerance for unjustified rates increases. Why? Because Sebelius says so. The Obama administration has issued more than 100 waivers from provisions of ObamaCare, a sweeping round of exceptions. Why? Because Sebelius says so. The regulatory state isnt anything new, but the Obama administration is broadening and deepening it as a matter of philosophy and exigency. The administration has progressivisms taste for rule by self-appointed experts, and now it has little choice but to work around a Republican-held House of Representatives to pursue its goals. The Environmental Protection Agency plans to move to limit greenhouse emissions from power plants and oil refineries in response to Congress resistance to passing a cap-and-trade law. As President Barack Obama put it, theres more than one way of skinning the cat. He might have elaborated: Theres the democratic way, and the administrative way. The EPAs move is more audacious than anything yet attempted by Sebelius; its as if Congress had declined to pass ObamaCare, and Sebelius had gone ahead and begun implementing it anyway. All of this is deeply corrosive of selfgovernment. From we the people ... to the secretary may ... is a triumph of bureaucracy over republicanism.

307 million living Americans are boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), more than 79 million citizens. But if we think many intend to retire and move to Southwest Florida right quick for the sunshine and waterfront, bringing their money and saving the regional economy, as both demographers and chambers of commerce continue to suggest, wed better think again, says boomer Ray Snow, a Naples Realtor and commodity trader. Behind the baby boomer generation there may not be enough generation Xers and generation Yers to buy all their houses in the North or Midwest, which theyll need to sell to move someplace else, such as down here or to Arizona to get a home or condo, for retirement. Not to mention, they dont have the same equity they had in 2004 or 2005 or 2006. That presents a problem, if its true. So does this: retiring in the traditional sense might be tantamount to a death sentence. One thing thats a good change in the way we age is keeping people working longer, says Dr. Michael Raab, a geriatrician for Older Adult Services in the nowsprawling Lee Memorial Health System in Lee County. Working five more years could benefit your health and well-being. Doing things that require reasoning, working on deadlines those time-based and cognitive reasoning skills are very powerful in preserving (vitality). Partly because economics may require boomers to work past 62 or 65 or even 70, and partly because it just feels good, theyre looking for long-term stimulation with a payoff of one kind or another, says Mimi Ford, a fitness instructor and the older adult coordinator for the YMCA in Charlotte County. She founded the High-Yers Club, a year-old, first of its kind focus group for those 55 to 95 at the Y. Theyre a very vital and lively group, she observes. Lots are still working. They want education, education education they want to be stimulated. We want to provide workshops and social activities that are paramount in their lives, so we can continue to keep the fire burning under them. A lot of them.Running the numbersIn the U.S., almost 13 percent of the population is already 65 or older, according to the Census Bureau. In Florida, that figure is 17.2 percent of the 18.5 million Sunshine State residents. In the regions coastal counties, the percentages run even higher: 26.8 percent of 318,500 in Collier County, 22.7 percent of about 587,000 in Lee, and 34.3 percent of almost 157,000 in Charlotte. Whether they like it or not, the boomers are now going to swell those ranks, especially on the southwest coast. Here, Naples, Fort Myers and Punta Gorda/ Port Charlotte have each been named as a top-10 U.S. destination for retirees, by one prominent national news source or another (Money Magazine, U.S. News & World Report and others). Who are you? the boomers have continued asking of themselves, repeating the mantric question of an icon band, The Who, written in 1978. It took the band 13 long years even to get to the implied self-doubt in that question post Vietnam, post Watergate. The English band had come out with the assertive and unrepentant My Generation in 1965. That was the year after the Civil Rights Act was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson, and the Beatles and the Rolling Stones played on the Ed Sullivan Show. The oldest boomers had just turned 19, and self-doubt was still an undiscovered country. As generational icons, the rock n rollers failed to impress everybody, especially some members of the now lionized greatest generation. Wondering why hed bothered to stop for lunch at the 4-Dice Restaurant in Fordyce, Ark., on the July 4th weekend, 1975, Keith Richards, the Stones lead guitar player, now 67, recalls his arrest and incarceration as part of a long assault, in his new and highly praised autobiography, Life. Every copper wanted to bust us by any means available, to get promoted and patriotically rid America of these little fairy Englishmen, Mr. Richards writes. It was 1975, a time of brutality and confrontation. Open season on the Stones had been declared since our last tour, the tour of 2, known as the STP. The State Department had noted riots (true), civil disobedience (also true), illicit sex (whatever that is), and violence across the United States. All the fault of us, mere minstrels. Who are you? the generation asked itself. Just a bunch of minstrels, perhaps? The question has never been answered. Baby boomers still arent entirely sure who or what they are, apparently. But whatever they are, it must be something good, something bold, something pioneering, perhaps at least thats Sue Maxwells view. Director of older adult services for Lee Memorial Health System, Mrs. Maxwell was born on a working Illinois farm in 1946. She turns 65 this year. Boomers will change how we actually perceive aging, although Im not sure we know what aging will be in the next 20 years, she explains. When we were born, there were not enough schools, not enough diapers, not enough teachers. They created pediatricians (in large numbers) for us. Dr. Spock came of age (he published The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care in 1946). We talked about how to raise children, we marched against Vietnam, we girls burned our bras. We became free and liberated whether that was good or bad we did it all. And now all is going to include less dramatic, more costly adventures. Now Im going to be on Social Security, she adds. Im going to be on Medicare. Its kind of like a rite of passage. I dont really feel that age, I dont look that age I dont really think that old. Now, 85 is the new 65. Its a whole different perspective. How society deals with that is how the boomers will demand that it does. We will make health care ready for us we will make everything ready for us. Maybe. Mrs. Maxwell acknowledges that the vast cost of this effort to make everything ready for us could have a downside if boomers arent aggressively flexible during the concluding chapters of their lives. For example, the current $500 billion Medicare effort to care for 46 million older Americans wouldnt get the job done in 2030, when 80 million Americans will qualify for Medicare, and fewer younger workers will exist to pour money into the program. How boomers and their children will work that out is not yet clear, but something else is, Mrs. Maxwell concludes: Were going to vote. If all that demands a pause for selfreflection, the pause came right on schedule Jan. 1. Headlines from one end of the media world to another reflected the boomer milestone, and not just for Americans. One In Six Will Live To Be 100, trumpeted a headline from a British paper, The Daily News. But that headline did not appear exclusively in Britain. The startling and slightly distressing announcement in large bold type sat prominently astride a newspaper rack in a Publix supermarket in Southwest Florida, where local newspaper headlines tried not to be outdone. Theyre Still Boomin, Baby, read The News-Press in Fort Myers. They sure are. In part, because they have no choice. Among other revealing snippets cited by pundits looking in the mirror on the first day of the 66th year of the youth generation, were these: Only about 15 percent of those working for private industry today have guaranteed retirement pensions. More than 50 percent of the so-called early boomers, those 55 to 65, will have to maintain a lower standard of living in retirement, and about 66 percent still have a mortgage with a median value of $85,000. Theres more, of course. Roughly three out of every four boomers will start taking Social Security payments at 62, which would be merely convenient if it werent also punitive: That will cut their monthly payments by about 25 percent. If they can wait until 70, the experts say, Social Security payments will be 75 to 80 percent higher than those of the start-at-62 crowd.Semper paratus NOTBoomers can never be accused of being boy scouts, either. Theyre simply unprepared for old age, suggests Margaret Lynn Duggar. Once head of elder services for Gov. Bob Graham, and now a private consultant (Margaret Lynn Duggar and Associates), she was Gov. Rick Scotts recent choice to head a transition team dealing with aging issues, in Tallahassee. While Florida has had plenty of notice that this is happening in our population were right at one in four being over the age of 60 Ive worked in many local communities, and they have not prepared adequately, she admits. I could go into any of eight or 10 communities tomorrow, and would any of them be prepared for this? No. Being prepared means dropping the traditional prejudices about old people and using them, which is a way of caring for them society has not tried since World War II, she explains. Being prepared means a huge array of all-community-wide and all-segmentdeep connections to older adults. But I would bet that probably not more than one or two counties in the state, if any, have anyone on their county planning staff who is knowledgeable about the aging of society, who goes to professional meetings about aging, to bring those views to planning and zoning decisions. By using the vast and mostly untapped resource of older people in schools, in community programs, wherever needs arises officials would not only contribute to the health and satisfaction of the aging, but they could help pay for the costs of a contemporary society always in need of human resources at low cost. I mentioned this when our transition team presented to Gov.-elect Scott 10 days ago, Ms. Duggar adds. I think the great untapped resource our communities are missing is all the contributions these folks could make to our economy, and our culture, and at very little cost to taxpayers. Doing things differently was always in the cards. When Mrs. Maxwell was born on the farm her parents and grandparents raised soybeans, corn and oats her own grandmother rarely left home, instead staying in the kitchen and devoting her life to making everybody else comfortable, she recalls. That typified old then. And so did 65. The life expectancy of Americans in 1946 was 66.7, statistics show. That year, the minimum wage was 40 cents an hour, monthly rent was $35, you could buy a new car for $1,125, a gallon of gas for 21 cents, and a new house for $5,150, according to Signal Magazine. Now, Mrs. Maxwell is a grandmother with four children and an urge to go kayaking or biking, not to stay in the kitchen, she says. Shes a long way from the farm where she lived with both her grandparents and her parents as a girl in fact, the New Year turned over with her core family members together for the first time in six years. If life experiences warranted flags, the Maxwells would fly boomer colors from the top of the mast. Two of our four sons are in the military (both are career Army majors returned from tours in Afghanistan or Iraq). Im married for the second time. I have a first husband and children by that marriage baby boomers all have these different family structures. My children also have a stepmother, and my grandchildren have I-dont-know-how-many sets of parents, she reveals. Our parents were so different, and weve been sandwiched between them and our children. Were the club sandwich generation. And like everything else, she concludes, that will lead to a unique old age, too. I have a lot of people in my life that may need care-giving, a lot who may be part of my retirement years I dont know. Its a whole different way of looking at things. Thats no problem, the evidence suggests. Boomers are good at looking at things in different ways. But one other thing is clear: What a long, strange trip its going to be. BOOMERSFrom page 1MAXWELL DUGGAR COURTESY LIBRARY OF CONGRESS Like the boomers they inspired, the Beatles keep going and going. This year, the band sold 450,000 albums within a week when its music was released digitally on iTunes. Stellar sales persist despite the fact that the band officially split up in 1970, Paul McCartney is 68, Ringo Starr is 70 and both John Lennon and George Harrison are deceased. www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011

Among the many birds Mr. Audubon spotted in Southwest Florida was the white pelican, shown in the image accompanying this story. The white pelican is a seasonal resident here, and experts think the image is based on a composition painted by Mr. Audubon perhaps in Florida in 1831 or 1832. Landscape artist George Lehman worked on the background. About the pelicans Mr. Audubon wrote: Ranged along the margins of the sand-bar, in broken array, stand a hundred heavy-bodied Pelicans... Pluming themselves, the gorged Pelicans patiently wait the return of hunger. Should one chance to gape, all, as if by sympathy, in succession open their long and broad mandibles, yawning lazily and ludicrously... But mark, the red beams of the setting sun tinge the tall tops of the forest trees; the birds experience the cravings of hunger... they rise on their columnar legs, and heavily waddle to the water... And now the Pelicans... drive the little fishes toward the shallow shore, and then, with their enormous pouches spread like so many bag-nets, scoop them out and devour them in thousands. On Dec. 10, 1826, Mr. Audubon wrote in his journal about the progress of the first proof impressions for Birds of America: It is now a month since my work was begun...; the paper is of unusual size, called double elephant and the plates are to be finished in such superb style as to eclipse all of the same kind in existence. The two plates now finished are truly beautiful.

Coach Joe Lyons, founder of Pro Elite Hockey, will hold classes every Saturday, Jan. 8-29. Old-school pond hockey is the childhood stick-and-puck game: no referees, no goalies and no boards; just skates, sticks, gloves and at least up North enough layers to keep your sweat from freezing, the coach explains. The program is designed so that players can scrimmage and build upon their skills while having fun and making new friends. The coach will assemble new teams every week. Youngsters 8 and under will play from 8-10 a.m.; those 10 and under will play from 11 a.m. to noon. Cost of the four-week program is $39 per player (free for goalies). All players must have full hockey equipment, helmet and mouth guard. Space is limited.About Pro Elite HockeyCoach Lyons founded Pro Elite Hockey in 1983. He has conducted schools and clinics in the United States, Canada and Russia, and served for 16 years as a scout for the National Hockey Leagues Boston Bruins. He moved to Naples in 2009. To register for pond hockey, call Veterans Community Park at 566-2367 or Coach Lyons at 431-7090.

Foster children will take part by preparing flatbreads on the veranda at the restaurant in the Village on Venetian Bay. Chefs will also prepare the breads inside. There are 500 children in the foster care system in Collier County, say Jackie Sereno, an FCC board member and the wife of restaurant co-owner Chris Sereno. We hope to raise awareness of this great need in our community and some much needed revenues, she adds. The average length of stay in foster care is 33 months, and 18 percent of the children are in care for five years or longer. The state provides the most basic necessities, such as room and board, for these children. FCC provides enrichment activities, clothing, birthday gifts, tutoring and more. Volunteers are needed to serve on the board of directors or the Childrens Needs Committee and to help with fundraising, grant-writing and other projects.

(and neighbor) Rick Scotts legacy be for Florida?The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example. Benjamin DisraeliSince Florida became a territory of the United States in 1821, 45 men have served our state as governor. Since the first inauguration was held in 1873, theyve all celebrated their victory with a swearing-in ceremony and parties on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January, following the November general election. All of our governors have their own distinct legacy, beginning with Gen. Andrew Jackson, who was appointed military governor pre-admission by President James Monroe on March 10, 1821. Gen. Jackson tendered his resignation less than a year later, however, after Spain transferred Florida to the United States the following November. William DuVal moved to Florida in 1822 after studying law in Kentucky and was appointed a territorial judge before President Monroe appointed him governor. His best-known legacy was nurturing peaceful relations with the Florida Indians and establishing Tallahassee as the territorial capital. Sidney Catts, candidate of the Prohibition Party, bears the distinction of being the first governor to have automobiles in his inaugural parade (on Jan. 2, 1917). By the 1930s, all governors used the radio and public address microphones in their celebrations. In 1909, Albert Waller Gilchrist, a ScotsIrish South Carolinian who was brought up on the values of the good book before he moved to Punta Gorda, became Floridas 20th governor. One hundred years later, an Indiana boy who was also brought up on the good book and who also came out of nowhere became the 45th governor of the Sunshine State. It took Gov. Gilchrist 24 months of campaigning to win the election, but it took Neapolitan Rick Scott just seven months. Gov. Gilchrist ran a clever campaign illustrated by the statuette of three monkeys depicting Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. The strategy served him well, as he won by a large margin. Gov. Scott, too, ran a clever campaign with the theme of Lets get to work (my favorite of his numerous TV ads was the poopy baby diapers one). Gov. Gilchrist promoted Florida not only as a tourist state but also as a place to live and farm. While he did not mount a successful second bid for governor, during his tenure he created the Montverde Industrial School and several new counties, and he saw completion of the railroad linking the mainland with Key West. Gov. Gilchrist had a soft spot for children and the helpless. Under his watch, Florida saw the creation of a tuberculosis sanitarium, a pure food law, healthier conditions for state prisoners and a hospital for impoverished crippled children. His estate included a bequest for ice cream for children on Halloween, a practice that continued long after his death in 1926. While Gov. Gilchrist was a charming man, he did not like to make waves. He took his see no evil a little bit too far when he choose to neither see nor punish sharkes and bummers, labels given to those who sold Everglades lands by the gallons; nor did he see any undue violence in a 1910 cigar labor strike in Tampa where labor goons employed tactics including lynching to break the strike. Gov. Scott, on the other hand, has promised to make waves. He began laying out his plan days after he was elected and reached out to business and community leaders all over the state, setting the stage for implementation of his lets get to work promise to create jobs for Floridians. High on his list of things to do is weighing in on the Bio-Science Medical Village anchored by The Jackson Laboratory right here in Collier County. Will Rogers said we cant all be heroes, because somebody has to sit on the curb and applaud when they go by. Im happy to take that position. Anyone who will take on a challenge like Gov. Scott has deserves hero status in my book. If he wants to stay there, however, hell have to earn it. And to do that, hell have to set forth a great example for our community and our state. So, Gov. (and neighbor) Scott, lets get to work.

The morning news was wall-to-wall coverage of a blizzard in the northeast that disrupted travel and stranded thousands trying to get home after the holiday weekend. As I drove to Clam Pass Park for the nature walk I lead, I thought it was likely there would be few takers this frigid morning. I started down the boardwalk to the beach through the tangle of mangrove trees of this fragile estuarine ecosystem. The weather kept the number of regular walkers usually seen to a minimum and drastically reduced the number of beachgoers riding the trams. I savored the almost total silence that we almost never experience. The cold temperatures were responsible for the absence of activity of the little mangrove tree crabs that scuttle around the tree trunks when they are startled. As I approached the bridge over the Clam Pass inlet, I heard the solitary call note of the osprey, that master fish hawk, so perfectly adapted to his little niche in natures symphony. The tide was low. The ubiquitous white ibis with its long, downcurving bill and a blackbellied plover in his white-bellied winter costume were foraging in the mud and shallow water. I saw a shadow gliding over the water and looked up to see an osprey flying effortlessly with its morning catch in its talons, held in perfect aerodynamic alignment, head facing forward. Where did the expression eats like a bird come from, I wondered? When these dinosaur descendants arent eating they seem to be on a non-stop mission to find food. A little further along I came to the channel through the mangroves that was dug several years ago after a hurricane blocked off a good portion of water flow mangrove trees need in order to survive. Just beneath me in the shallow water were three of our longer-legged wading birds: a tri-colored heron (look for the white underpants), a little blue heron in its stunning gray-blue plumage, and a great egret, the official symbol of the National Audubon Society. At the beach the usual contingent of gulls, terns and pelicans were not to be seen. The only evidence of the cold front and mini-storm from the night before were several sea stars (now the preferred name for our starfish) stranded on the beach. On the slim chance that they might still be alive, I put them back in the somewhat rugged surf. What a great way to start the day. There is always something new to see, and I enjoy nothing more than sharing this special place with residents and visitors. Ira Rubenstein is a volunteer for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Free, guided nature walks along Clam Pass set out at 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday from the tram parking lot next to the Naples Grande Resort. Parking is free for those who have a city or county beach sticker and $8 for others. No reservation necessary. For more information, call the Conservancy at 262-0304.

In the first Straight Talk of 2010, I predicted that we would begin to see four trends move to center stage in the health-care industry. Ill offer my predictions for 2011 next week. But first, howd I do with my 2010 prognostications? Well, I missed the mark on one of them but scored pretty well on the other three. Here are the four trends I talked about a year ago: 1. Physician integration Bulls eye on this fone. As the year ended, NCH had partnered with 65 physicians, 20 mid-level providers and about 400 new colleagues. And this is just a start on integration. Our payers Medicare, Medicaid and probably the private insurers will migrate as quickly as possible from quantity to quality and volume to value. Patients, insurers and caregivers alike should have the same goals of covering most everyone, removing barriers among caregivers, eliminating waste and fraud, creating seamlessness and focusing on evidenced-based medicine. Whether we evolve to a single-payer system depends on how well we can add value with integration. Certainly Medicare and probably soon Medicaid will strongly encourage an integrated system to ameliorate the crippling 6 percent annual increase on spending for health care. If we fail at integration, a single payer system will probably be imposed so we can compete in the global economy. 2. Technology Again, the prediction was on point. (Okay, maybe this was a nobrainer). The electronic medical record is thriving, as we partner with many outpatient offices already at an advanced state. Last week, L.P.N. Nancy Gould, longtime colleague of pediatrician Dr. Dulce Dudley, showed me the customized system in their office. They switched to electronic records about five years ago and are almost paperless today. Meanwhile, we made three significant upgrades to our Cerner inpatient system to facilitate a new look and friendlier feel. Weve started the discussion about integrating the inpatient system with our newly adapted outpatient system. Were working on simplifying documentation in our ER and ICUs. And the technology beat continues at full speed. 3. Prevention This is probably our regions and nations most important long-term community health goal. Locally, our progress was confirmed when the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and University of Wisconsin population department found that Collier County is the healthiest of 67 counties in Florida. We are second and third, respectively, in mortality and morbidity but 11th in health factors such as teenage pregnancy, access to primary care, percentage of uninsured, unemployment rates and air pollution-particulate matter days (which translates to smoke from forest fires). So we have much work to do in this area. 4. Personal health care and genomics This is the area that experienced slower-than-expected progress. One problem, noted in a Modern Healthcare article (Not Yet in Sequence, Nov. 22, 2010), is that the clinical utility of testing has not yet been established. The Government Accountability Office accused 10 of the 15 companies it investigated of engaging in deceptive marketing, misinformation and questionable practices. So the jury is still out on genomic medicine. As they say Three out of four aint bad. For 2011, Ill stick to areas where, like the first three predictions I made last year, I know we at NCH can make a significant, direct impact. Ill share those thoughts with you next week.

Research indicates that depressive illnes ses ar e br ought on by changes in the chemistry of the brain that often have their roots in the hormonal changes of the teen and young adult years. Studies also show that many children who struggle with depression also have anxiety symptoms. Tough Times has been designed to equip teens with effective coping strategies for dealing with the stressful adolescent years, Mr. Schimmel adds. Teens struggling with depression may sulk, get into trouble at school, be negative, grouchy, worry excessively, refuse to go to school and feel misunderstood. Children with anxiety often cant relax, have difficulty sleeping, startle easily, fear social situations and have difficulty concentrating. Anxiety can manifest into physical symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, headaches, stomachaches or diarrhea. As teens develop, it can be difficult to tell whether a child is just going through a phase or is suffering from depression or anxiety. Hoping it is a phase or hoping the child will grow out of it, is a very big mistake. These disorders cause distress and dysfunction, and without treatment, they can make people feel hopeless and potentially want to harm themselves. Parents, teachers, family and friends who have become worried about changes in a childs behavior should take the warning signs seriously and refer the young person to a mental health professional. In order to qualify for Tough Times, teens must meet certain criteria determined through a clinical assessment. Each client receives an individualized treatment plan prior to the start of group. The program meets for an average of six weeks, although treatment length is individualized based on the needs of the child. To obtain an initial assessment or to learn more about Tough Times, call the David Lawrence Center at 455-8500. TO YOUR HEALTH TEENSFrom page A23

Cats cant synthesize taurine on their own, so they must get it from their diet. Cats also have other nutritional requirements that vary from those of dogs, such as the type of vitamin A they can use. Thats why you should never feed your cat the same food you give your dog. Their physiology is different. Cats metabolize drugs differently than dogs or people. Its very dangerous to give a cat the same drug that you or I or the dog next door might take, even if its for the same type of problem. Take pain, for instance. Ive seen clients kill their cats by going to the medicine chest and giving their cats aspirin or acetaminophen. The same holds true for parasite treatments: Never apply a flea or tick treatment or shampoo made for dogs to your cat. Always call your veterinarian first and ask if a particular medication is safe for your cat and at what dose. The way cats express pain is different. Well, its not really different. Its almost nonexistent. Its much easier to notice pain in a dog because we tend to interact with dogs directly. We take them on walks and we see whether theyre limping, for instance, or moving more slowly. With cats, its much more difficult to see the changes in mobility that signal injury or arthritis. Cats know instinctively that displaying pain puts them at risk from other predators, so they do their best to mask it. That works to their disadvantage when it comes to veterinary care. The signs that a cat is in pain are so subtle that most people miss them unless they are keen observers of their cats. Cats need to see the veterinarian. Its a mystery to me why people are so much less likely to provide veterinary care to their cats than to their dogs. Cats are the most popular pets in America, yet veterinarians are seeing a decline in veterinary visits for cats. Thats a shame, because cats need and deserve great veterinary care to ensure that they live long, happy, healthy lives. They might be intelligent and independent creatures, but they cant doctor themselves at least not yet. Providing your cat with regular veterinary care is a good investment, and its one of the responsibilities you owe your cat when you bring him into your life. Cats may prefer an air of mystery, but being mysterious doesnt always work in their favor. Some people are born into cat-loving families, while others have cats thrust upon them. And then, of course, there are those who independently make the decision to take up life with a cat. Cat lovers are members of an exceptional club. A relationship with a cat can be joyful, entertaining and sometimes frustrating, but in the end, its always rewarding. Life with a cat is special, if you know what to expect. Cats are so connected to myths and misconceptions that its no wonder they are often misunderstood. I want to help you separate fact from fiction. First and foremost, cats are not small dogs. When you are reading about different cat breeds or looking at the personality descriptions of cats at a shelter, you may come across some that are described as doglike. Its true that some cats, like dogs, will follow you around, play fetch or go for walks on-leash. But that is where the resemblance ends. Cats differ from dogs in many ways, but here are some of the most important: Their nutritional needs are different. Cats are what biologists call obligate carnivores. That means they must have meat in their diet to survive. Lots of meat. While dogs can exist on a diet that contains large amounts of grains, cats need meat pro-PET TALES Feline myth-bustingBY DR.

Play and despair both ride the third rale, both abiding in auscultation and ululation. Mixing play and despair is a successful hair of the dog strategy: Like cures like, like magic and homeopathy. In the mix-up, all is possible. Mithridates IV was master of this strategy. This first century BCE King of Pontus, a small kingdom on the southern shore of the Black Sea, administered to himself nonlethal amounts of many poisons. In this way he became fortified against poisons. Today the word from his name, mithridate, refers to confection that is effective antidote for poison. Mithridates was so successful that he was not able to commit suicide with poison. So he commissioned a mercenary to run him through with sword. If with repeated inoculation it is possible that inoculum becomes innocuous, then perhaps all things are possible. The possible can be; the potential may be. Effectively, the possible is portent of potency. The actual achievement of final result goes beyond possible into real effect. Some say that the influence on affect is measureable. Others say that is impossible. Pick your poison. In the face of this inquiry, I am impassible. Unlike the essay inquiry of James, my free will nonplus is how any one mind can know any two things. Or any old thing. At all. In 1895 William James posed the possible multiverse hypothesis. From Fish die belly-upward and rise to the surface. It is their way of falling. Andre GideWilliam James studied and taught medicine, physiology and biology. Later he, in his own words, drifted into psychology and philosophy from a sort of fatality, a soul sickness in which he was no stranger to intense suicidal ideation. James believed that being useful is what makes beliefs true. The useful is freely possible. He wrote that his first act of free will was to believe in free will. For James, free will was choosing to sustain one thought when he could be having a possible other. James had a mind spacious enough to hold widely disparate thoughts. For James, atomistic physiological brain changes form complex ideas. And that functional perspective was embraced by spiritualism, held together by soul. In that wide inner world, James struggled, precisely, with delineating how it is possible that two minds can know one thing. Perhaps it was in the transformative creativity of philosophical play that James inoculated himself against MUSINGS Mithridate Rx is the FloridaWeekly muse who hopes to inspire profound mutiny in all those who care to read.

B4 Pre-inaugurationRick Scott comes home before becoming governor, and more networking events. B9-10 Dream onAlways wanted a mountain getaway? Maybe you can win one. B11 Computers today are built with hard drives, which store most of the programs we need to use them, including the engines that run them, operating systems such as Windows 7 or Mac OS X. Those in turn run web browsers like Safari and Firefox, and software like Microsoft Office, also stored on the hard drive. But as more computing work is completed and stored online, will hard drives eventually go the way of other technological dinosaurs, like floppy disks? Google sees a future that looks something like that, in which people do all their computing and store all their work in the cloud, in other words, online. A new operating system the company is testing, called Chrome OS, it is built on the presumption the world is living more and more in the cloud. For many, that seems to be the wave of the future. The reality of it is, everythings going that way, said Robert More, store manager of Repair and More in Naples. Google agrees. The company plans to have Samsung and Acer build computers made to run Chrome OS sometime in the middle of 2011. Essentially, Chrome OS is a web browser in which all of your work is completed and stored, Google says. Its designed to be streamlined, faster, less expensive, and more secure than traditional operating systems. Using a computer made to run Chrome OS, the Internet would provide endless storage capacity, and also be the source from which all computing needs are met. All the programs you need called extensions or applications, like the ones created for smartphones are available on Googles online store. That includes everything from the basics, such as printing, to spreadsheets, documents, games or apps that allow you to price-check electronics. But there arent enough of those yet to make the system practical for everyone, Google says. Users who run more complex software, for example, for video or photography editing, would probably still need to use their current operating systems. Because the system depends on being online, computers running Chrome OS will come equipped with Wi-Fi as well as the 3-G network from Verizon.Security concernsGoogle says some businesses could switch to using only Chrome OS.

Despite the platitudes afforded mans best friend, a real dog is an often-used derogatory expression and, in investment parlance, has morphed into The Dogs of the Dow, a well-known investment strategy. At the end of each year, the 10 highest dividend-yielding Dow Jones Industrial stocks are identified for investment as they are expected to outperform the Dow, the S&P and other broad-based indices of large capitalization stocks in the coming year. The thought process is this: A very high dividend yield offered by a solid, large capitalization company (as suggested by inclusion in the Dow Jones Industrial Index) suggests that stock might be undervalued and that often translates into future price outperformance. The investment strategy worked well in 2010 as these Dogs returned price appreciation of 15.5 percent versus the DJIA with 11 percent and the S&P with 13 percent. And six out of the 10 2010 dogs returned above 15.5 percent. Each of 2011s Dogs yields 3 percent or better, a tidy return if one is investing in Treasuries. Generally, a stock trading at a 5 percent or better dividend yield has issues. What might they be? Concern about: a potential dividend cut, continued sub-par growth, etc. Chances are pretty good that one year from now some 2011 Dogs will have reinvented themselves into Wall Street darlings. Which ones? Unknown, but a simple and interesting exercise is to make your paper portfolio selection and then revisit on Dec. 31, 2011. Here is the list and some comments about each. The Doggies winners are two telecom stocks: ATT and Verizon. All nonVerizon investors might be kicking themselves for not buying at Verizons summer lows in the mid-20s. Then, the stock was yielding more than 7 percent, a major divestiture was complete and rumors abounded that an iPhone deal was in the works. High yield, corporate restructuring, and a link to Apples high growth all helped. The laggard wasnt going any place until it suddenly went a reminder that screaming buys dont tap you on the shoulder and tell you to buy. Not so clear what the growth trajectory is for ATT; the issue is that Apple is not continuing its exclusive contract with ATT and it is hard to see from where ATT will garner meaningful growth. Next come the three big pharma companies: Johnson and Johnson, Merck, and Pfizer. Health care is a big growth story except when health care became a cost-containment story. Sure, further international expansion is knocking at their doors just at lower prices and generic competition. Food plays would be McDonalds and Kraft. In 2010, the exceptionally wellmanaged Pershing Square hedge fund held big positions in each. Kraft was interesting because Pershings manager, Bill Ackerman, held Kraft after a mega acquisition (Cadbury) while Buffett was unloading; pretty interesting that two of the all-time greatest investors were at polar extremes on this stock. KFT was up 17 percent in 2010 nominally a Dog but not a real Dog. Also amazing is that McDonalds, another Ackerman pick, has appreciated 22 percent in 2010; again, a nominal Dog looking more like a beauty queen. (Current positions for the aforementioned hedge fund are not known.) DuPont, up 48 percent in 2010, and Chevron, up 18 percent in 2010, are international cyclical plays; that story seems intact as engines of growth are running strong in India and China. Beating out GE is Intel. Who would ever have thought that the 1990s tech darling would become an industrial Dog? Ther are some caveats on this investment strategy. Historical price Dog performance indicates that it is not always a slam-dunk winning or outperforming strategy. Just take a look at the website www.dogsofthedow.com. Secondly, as clearly seen in the price appreciation of DuPont, Chevron, McDonalds, Kraft, etc., some of 2011s Dogs were stellar price performers in 2010. So what sense does that make? Possibly part of the problem with the Dog theory is that, in more recent years, additions to the list of the DJI 30 stocks has included more companies that are really not industrial; they are technology, telecom and financial and are growthoriented stocks that tend not to be big dividend payers. So, in the 1990s the DJI stocks were all apples; now the DJI base is apples and oranges, in terms of orientation towards paying dividends. For instance, McDonalds is a nominal 2011 Dog, having appreciated 22 percent in 2010 while Bank Of America (a DJI stock) is not a 2011 Dog as its yield is only .3 percent. However, Bank of America has fallen in value some 11.4 percent. The same is true of the non-performer Cisco that is not a Dog, yet truly barked like a Dog in 2010. At year-end, there are nine stocks DJI yielding under 2.0 percent. These stocks dont rank as Dogs because they dont meet the high dividend yield criteria but many have desultory price performance. For companies that are mature and industrial, a ranking by dividend level probably means much more in Dog theory.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 THE MOTLEY FOOL Were trained to worry about inflation and to pay attention to its level, but published inflation rates are rather problematic. Thats because the inflation rate that each of us experiences is different. Over the long run, inflation has averaged about 3 percent to 4 percent annually. But in any given year, health insurance premiums and milk may rise 10 percent, cable television bills and college tuition may rise 5 percent, but peanut b utter, clothing and gas might fall by 5 percent. How that all affects you depends on your personal expenses. To understand the situation better, it helps to know what the official inflation rate really measures. The most common measure of it is the urban (i.e. non-farmer, non-military, non-institutionalized) Consumer Price Index (CPI), which measures, year by year, the cost of a basket of common goods and services we Americans purchase, such as food, clothing, housing, medical care, energy, and so on. (Some versions of the Misleading In ation What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It?

Q Should I do my investing through my 401(k) account or by directly buying individual stocks? S.F., Flagstaff, Ariz.A Consider doing both. Individual stocks offer you more control and opportunity for rapid appreciation but they can be riskier, too. Meanwhile, 401(k)s, which are tax-deferred and tend to offer mostly mutual funds, are a powerful way to save for retirement. If your employer matches any part of your contribution, that represents free money rarely worth passing up. Its smart to at least learn more about your companys 401(k) or other available retirement plan. With any investing process, its best to start socking money away as early as possible, because the longer your nest egg has to grow, the bigger it should get. Also, consider plunking much or all of your long-term 401(k) money into a broad-market index fund. If your plan doesnt offer one, ask for it. Learn more about retiring well at www.Fool.com/retirement and by trying our Rule Your Retirement newsletter for free, at www.RuleYourRetirement.com.Q Is buy and hold the best way to invest? D.L., Statesboro, Ga.A Theres no one-size-fits-all investment approach. Buying and holding can be effective, but think of it as buying to hold. In other words, never buy a stock and then just blindly hold it for years, without ever checking up on it. Fortunes can change, even for the best companies. Instead, carefully select promising companies, intending to hold for the long term as long as they remain healthy and growing. Millions of dollars have been made by people who held shares of great companies for decades, through ups and downs.

Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & EnrichCPI exclude food and energy prices, as theyre particularly volatile.) The food at home category recently made up about 8 percent of the basket, and food away from home about 6 percent. If youre someone who rarely cooks at home and always dines out, this isnt really reflecting your lifestyle. Housing makes up a whopping 43 percent of the basket, but if your home is paid off, or youre living in your parents basement, your personal profile is vastly different. (Housing prices also vary widely across the country, so while overall housing costs may fall, they may be surging in your region.) Medical care is 6 percent of the basket, but theres a good chance that you spend more than that percentage of your income on health insurance and other medical expenses. Get the picture? Its interesting and informative to note the changes in the CPI over time, but its also important not to assume that its reflecting the inflation that each of us faces. Instead, wed do well to figure out our own inflation rate, by tracking our actual expenses and how they fluctuate over time. My most costly investing decision is not nec ess arily the dumbest. I had just started investing in 2004, when I was 24. Netflix was one of the first stocks I was watching. I was ready to pull the trigger when it was around $12 per share, but then it suddenly it dropped to $9. I couldnt figure out why it fell, or if it was in serious trouble, so I didnt buy. I spent the next couple years watching it hover around the $20s and $30s, and then watched it move up to $100 and beyond. I dont feel all that bad about it. I was new, and wasnt confident in my ability to pick a solid winner for the long term. D.C., onlineThe Fool Responds: All investors can point to winners they missed out on. Youre right: Its critical to be comfortable with and confident in your investments, lest you just be speculating. Not all your researched purchases will deliver, but the more you know, the less risk youll take on. For those who believed, Netflix has been a stunner, recently trading near $200.

Recently trading below book value, Grupo Simec has more than $200 million in net cash, and has surpassed Wall Streets earnings-per-share expectations twice this year. It also maintains the strongest free cashflow margin of any of its major steel competitors. Keeping costs under control has allowed Grupo Simec to be more nimble than larger competitors.

QUALITT RVICE Need a Copier? BUDGET COPIER$(239) 331-4908www.BudgetCopiers.com would require that their most sensitive and important information is stored in the cloud, protected by Google. Although the idea of your companys private financial statements, for instance, being online may at first seem bracing, Google asserts that its more secure than keeping information on a hard drive protected by anti-virus software. Even at this early stage, we feel there is no consumer or business operating system that is more secure, the companys website says. Eitan Bencuya, a Google spokesperson, compared storing your files in the cloud to keeping money in a bank. In the past, people kept their money under their mattress or in a jar on top of their bookcase and nobody thought of this idea of putting their money somewhere else, he said. At some point, people realized it was actually safer to put your money in a bank rather than keeping it under a mattress. And in a similar way people today are recognizing the security and efficiency benefits of storing their data in the cloud. He adds, People are always a little afraid of these types of transitions, but its the natural way to go. Although Naples computer repair store manager Mr. More said he hadnt heard of Googles new system specifically, he wouldnt be too worried from a security perspective. The reality is, someone can get to your information now if they want to, he said. Its not going to be any less secure online than it is on your computer. The browser on the new computers looks very much like Google does now. In fact, if you want to get a taste of what the new Chrome OS computers will feel like, you can download the Chrome web browser, which has been around for a few years. Because Chrome OS is just the Chrome browser running on hardware, we are able to provide users with a fundamentally different computing model that provides a number of speed and security benefits under the hood, Mr. Bencuya said. For example, if you have three tabs open at once in your browser, each one has its own security sandbox, which blocks spyware or other malicious software. No one can break into your computer to get information, because theres not anything stored on it. And Google does all the security updates automatically. And if your computer is lost or stolen, it wont do anyone else any good. You can just log onto a different computer and go to your cloud. The new computers will also have a security feature called Incognito mode, in which your browsers history isnt saved. Pilot programGoogle built a prototype of what those new computer models will look like called CR-48. As part of a pilot program, the company is allowing thousands of individuals, including some in Southwest Florida, to try out the entirely online computing model for themselves. One website tracking the laptops said about 15,000 were sent out, and nearly 60,000 are rumored to have been built. But Google isnt going into to detail other than to say it plans to distribute thousands of (test) notebooks. Anyone can apply to test one. About a dozen large businesses will be testing Chrome OS on the hard drive-free laptops. For some of those businesses, which do reservations work online, which do reservations work online, such as a hotel chain or an airline, Chrome OS could cut costs and keep information more secure, Google says. InterContinental Hotel Group, for example, has expressed its support of Chrome OS and plans to use it. Fort Myers resident Kevin Pierce, the husband of Florida Weekly Naples managing editor Cindy Pierce and a voiceover artist for public radio and TV, is testing Chrome OS on one of Googles prototype computers. Mr. Pierce says the system is fast. And theres no bootup sequence like with traditional operating systems you just turn it on. I have flashlights that come with longer instructions, Mr. Pierce said. Theres an icon of an insect on the browser window. Anytime the computer does something wrong, he clicks on the bug and it opens up a reporting form to send to Google. So far there havent been any major glitches. My question is, how much of your days work or play are you able to do on your (Chrome OS) computer without having to go back to your desktop? he asked. Some might be able to use Chrome OS solely. But Mr. Pierce does voice-over and narration work, which means he uses a recording studio with very robust audio recording software. Chrome OS doesnt have the tools at this early stage for him to do that work. When Im doing that work I cant do it on this new computer yet, he said. But when Im doing any writing or correspondence, e-mailing, or keeping up on my calendar or working on spreadsheets I can do all that on Google services in the cloud.

Last months conference included business meetings at Sothebys corporate headquarters in Short Hills, N.J., and a networking event at the Sothebys Auction House in New York City. Premier Properties of Southwest Florida Inc. became a Sothebys International Realty affiliate in December. The network includes more than 11,000 sales associates in approximately 500 offices in 42 countries and territories worldwide.

Our network helps connect the finest independent real estate companies to the most prestigious clientele in the world, says Michael Good, CEO of Sothebys International Realty Affiliates LLC. A t t orney Patrick Neale, a member of the Collier County Foreclosure Task Force, testified before the Florida Senate Banking and Insurance Committee in early December. Mr. Neale was invited to present senators his perspective on changes facing Floridians in the enduring foreclosure crisis. He affirmed that a significant percentage of the people currently in foreclosure followed conservative financing guidelines when purchasing their homes. They did everything right, he said. They put 20 percent down and have conventional mortgages; however, their paychecks have ceased or have been drastically reduced through no fault of their own. Unemployment and underemployment have taken a huge toll, he said, adding many of his clients are Realtors, small business owners and independent contractors who are not counted in unemployment statistics. While we continue to seek solutions for this ongoing crisis, families that only two years ago were financially sound and living within their means are now being put out of their homes he said. He concluded by asking the committee to consider the information presented when putting forth legislative efforts to address the foreclosure crisis in Florida.

Opening night is also a fundraising gala that includes a black-tie champagne reception. Universally acknowledged as Donizettis masterpiece, Lucia Di Lammermoor is described as a tragic love story of gigantic proportion, technically challenging, deeply moving and visually dramatic as well as a showpiece for the soprano. Coloratura soprano Audrey Elizabeth Luna, who made her Metropolitan Opera debut last month as the Queen of the Night in Julie Taymors production of Mozarts The Magic Flute, stars in the coveted title role for Opera Naples production of Lucia Di Lammermoor. Her character is caught in a feud between her family and that of the Ravenswoods. Singing opposite Ms. Luna as Edgardo Di Ravenswood is the celebrated Irish tenor Anthony Kearns, returning to Opera Naples after wowing audiences as Romeo in last seasons Romeo and Juliet. Baritone Christopher Holloway, who most recently appeared with Opera Naples in La Boheme in January 2009, performs as Lucias brother, Lord Enrico Ashton. Metropolitan Opera conductor Franz Vote conducts Lucia Di Lammermoor for Opera Naples. Robert Swedberg, the former general director of Orlando Opera, is stage director. The production is underwritten by Moran Edwards Asset Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors. Tickets to the Jan. 15 gala are $135; tickets for Jan. 16 range from $25 to $95.

And apparently, neither can Florida Repertory Theatre. Both are staging A.R. Gurneys Sylvia this month. The play revolves around a couple, Greg and Kate, whove been married for 22 years. Their children are grown, and Greg and Kate have moved from the suburbs back into New York City, where one day at the park, a dog jumps into Gregs lap. According to the tag on her collar, shes Sylvia. Greg brings her home. Suddenly, Sylvia is in their life. But Kate doesnt want her. Shes raised dogs before. Shes just finished raising children. She wants to concentrate on her blossoming career. But Greg is quite taken with Sylvia.WSEE SYLVIA, C4 Carrie Lund, Gordon McConnell and Michelle Damato in Florida Reps SylviaJim Heffernan and Jesica Walck in The Naples Players production SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY LUNA KEARNS

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 If prostitution is the oldest profession in the world, then pimping is the oldest managerial position. As long as escorts have turned tricks, men and women have taken a cut for the protection and organization they provide. Now, in this ever-expanding global economy, pimping has gone international. As part of an investigation on human trafficking, Youthradio.org obtained a pimps business plan from a local prosecutor. The document and I use the term loosely consists of a set of hand-written business goals. Stay in high pursuit looking for a prostitute, the author strategizes. Take my game to the next level (from the concrete streets to the executive suites). He wraps up with plans for a global venture: Set-up a international operation (have five hoes on every continent). What shocks me most about the pimp business plan other than the terrible grammar is its boldly hustling nature. Not everyone has the money-making mentality it takes for the thievery and self-promotion pimping requires. Whenever I meet this Pimping aint easy ArtisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com kind of person, Im always dismayed and awed. So it was on a recent trip out of the country with my mother. On our first day, still weary from the flight, we set out for a tour of the city with an American-gone-native as our guide, a woman who had lived abroad for 13 years and taken to the local culture like a hippo to a riverbed. She had assumed the hustling ways of the people who surrounded her, and she gave no breaks to the American tourists who crossed her path. In fact, she gave them a special mark-up, knowing their dollars could handle her steep prices, even with the dismal exchange rate. Toward the end of our city tour, after we had snapped photos at the lighthouse and bought beaded necklaces in the market, our guide gave us the hard sell. I actually offer a lot of services, she said. She ticked off her local products inventory, the clothes she designs and the tours she runs to neighboring destinations. I also can provide escorts, she added.I had been lounging in the back seat of the car, my eyes gritty from the sand blowing in on the hot wind, my deodorant long since having checked out, but I suddenly sat up. Escorts?A lot of women come here traveling alone she cut her eyes at SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTStoo, had straightened in her seat. Ive got a couple of them, the guide continued. One is in his second year of law school. Really smart. A good conversationalist. The other here she looked at my mom is a surfer. You know, young and buff. There it was. Our tour guide had become a madam, and my mother and I were the Johns (Jeans?). The car dropped us off at our place, and we tittered as we unlocked the door. Escorts? we asked each other. Who did she think she was? The answer, of course: a pimp. It aint easy, says Ice-T, but it sure pays the bills. ...It aint easy... but it sure pays the bills... d g p g e e r t e s h e h e t s d s, k m d ng p v a t too, had Ive g g ui d e c o s econd y s mart.

Although not a household name, veteran theater, television and commercial actor Wayne Mortons body of work is well-known for its forte, diversity, and longevity, says Mark Danni, artistic director of TheatreZone. Mr. Morton makes his TheatreZone debut in the tap-dancing musical comedy No, No, Nanette, running Friday, Jan. 6, through Sunday, Jan. 16, at the G&L Theatre on the campus of Community School of Naples. Mr. Morton has performed in productions of My Fair Lady as Alfie Doolittle, The Wizard of Oz as The Wizard and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying as J.B. Biggley. He co-starred with Sally Struthers in Hello, Dolly in the role of Horace Vandergelder on Broadway. His most recognizable television roles include Raytowns Mr. TV on the TV series Mamas Family and The Meineke Muffler Man in commercials in the 1980s. Thanks to the popularity of cable channels Nick @ Nite and TV Land, his guest-starring roles on television shows like Happy Days, Mork & Mindy, M.A.S.H., WKRP-Cincinnati and Newhart have introduced a new generation of viewers to Mr. Mortons acting prowess. He began his professional career in Dallas, Texas, in 1966 in the Dallas Summer Musicals season opener An Hour and 60 Minutes with Jack Benny and Wayne Newton, and has steadily worked in Los Angeles and New York for more than 35 years. Critically acclaimed as The Happiest Show In Town, No, No, Nanette is the second show in TheatreZones sixth season.

And Sylvia, with that lack of restraint inherent in dogs, loves him back completely. Mr. Gurney loves to push conventions as a playwright. For example, in other works he has relayed the entire arc of a relationship via letters (Love Letters) and told the stories of various families through time via a dinner table (The Dining Room). In Sylvia, a young woman plays the dog, who talks to her humans. Initially, the play met with some resistance, because it was thought actresses would not want to play a dog. But when it was produced in 1995 at the Manhattan Theatre Club, starring Sara Jessica Parker as the title character, it garnered Drama Desk Award nominations for Outstanding Play, Outstanding Actress in a Play (for Ms. Parker), and Outstanding Costume Design. Both Florida Rep and the Sugden Community Theatre, home of The Naples Players, are dog-friendly venues. Florida Rep Producing Artistic Director Robert Cacioppo and his wife, actress Carrie Lund, own Annie, an affectionate golden retriever in her golden years. Annie, who appeared at The Rep in The Last Romance, is wellknown to the companys actors. Everyone loves the dog, says Associate Director Jason Parrish. Shes like a member of the Florida Rep family. And Dallas Dunnagan, producing artistic director of The Naples Players, often takes her 15-year-old rat terrier, Roxie, to work with her. Everybody knows shes the theaters dog, Dolores Fetters, administrative assistant for the Players, says. Coming soon to the SudgenIf youve ever cried over those puppy advertisements or been embarrassed by your dog, or changed your entire life because of your dog, Sylvia will really strike home, says Megan McCombs, director of The Naples Players production of Sylvia. Ms. McCombs, who is the KidzAct director at the theater, was seen onstage as Lady Bracknell in last seasons The Importance of Being Earnest. Shes also the owner of Ginger, a 14-year-old rat terrier. Ginger, she says, is very much a house dog who loves to stay home. Even when she takes her on a walk, if they go beyond the property, Ginger sits down on the sidewalk and doesnt want to go any farther. The first time she had to put Ginger in a kennel because she was going out of town, Ms. McCombs recalls, I had to cook food for her and put it in baggies, and I had to call every day to see how she was she was trembling because she thought we wouldnt come back. For anybody whos ever had an association with a pet, this play really captures it. Ms. McCombs has knows the play well; she performed in it once, as Kate, and has also directed it before. I really like what Gurney does, he writes for the theater, she says. He uses some theatrical conceits to show us the actors ability. In Sylvia, the girl playing the dog has inherent comedy built into it, she says, but there are also three different parts played by one actor, which gives that actor a chance to show off versatility and strut their stuff. The humor of the play is situational and comes out of playing the characters, she says. Gurney doesnt really write punch lines. Well, he does write some punch lines, but he writes situationally funny things, Ms. McCombs says. It doesnt come off the page that way (when you read it.) Its really brought to life by the actors; when they play it correctly, it becomes very funny. There are wonderful situations that strike home, and you laugh. Thats what I like about it. There are some over-the-top moments a man playing a woman, a woman playing a dog. Youre stretching reality a little bit. But for the most part, theyre playing the truth of the moment, and thats where the humor is. At its core, Sylvia is about the nature of love, and the nature of love in a marriage the sacrifices, negotiations or demands that each partner makes on the other, Ms. McCombs says. What happens in the course of this play is that theyre changing, she adds. The children have left and theyre reinventing their lives. She wants to go one way, he wants to go another. The bond of wanting to stay together is there. Theyre testing that, in a sense, but the love between them is whats holding them together. And the dog is the catalyst for that. Its through the dog, and the love of the dog, that the husband is finding a new identity for himself, a new fulfillment. The wife is not interested in taking care of another entity. Shes done her maternal thing. She has to find a way of coming to terms with what he wants. Is it going to break them apart, or are they going to find their way back together again? Hes more emotionally available, hes found this bond and could express himself with the dog, perhaps in a way he hasnt been doing for a long time. Its interesting that an animal, or this other, instinctual being, has awakened something in him, and ultimately makes him more available as a person and as a partner. Opening first in Fort MyersSylvia is a fun play, an interesting play, says Maureen Heffernan, director of the Florida Rep production. This is her first time working with the play. Its a real favorite of Bobs (Cacioppo), and one Ive known about but never had the opportunity to work on. Its about relationships, which is something that draws me. Its all about the sort of foibles that we have in relationships, and certainly about the unconditional love that those of us who have been lucky enough to have pets enter our lives know about. Ms. Heffernan is dedicating this production to Chloe, the miniature poodle she adopted four years ago. I never grew up with dogs and never wanted one, but encountered somebody elses little dog and was taken with it, she says. So we were thinking about fostering a dog, and were working with a rescue (organization). A 9-pound miniature poodle was found wandering in a park. Shes amazing Shes truly the light of my life. She makes me laugh and smile and everything else. Im a mad dog mommy now, and Im shamelessly a dog mommy. Almost everyone in the show is a dog person, she says, so they all have stories to tell and have experienced things they can connect to the play. The writer has done a wonderful job with how we anthropomorphize animals, she says. We fill them with thoughts and emotions, they help complete us. Ms. Heffernan is pleased to be working with Michele Damato again, who plays the dog for Florida Rep. The two previously worked together when Ms. Heffernan directed Rabbit Hole and Dancing at Lughnasa. If Im thinking of a person who is a wonderful speaking actress and a wonderful physical actress, shes at the top of my list, Ms. Heffernan says about Ms. Damato. This has been an opportunity to let a wonderful performer explore all sorts of possibilities. Youd think this role was written for her. The director predicts that audiences will divide as they watch Sylvia, with some relating to Kate and others to Greg. One of the things that strikes me in the play is that Greg says he wants something real, a connection to life, Ms. Heffernan says. Its totally about connection. Often we get to a certain point and our roles begin to change. We might find less meaning in work, or the kids are gone, or were living in a new place, and we realize how disconnected we feel. For some people that might take them back to the church, or to changing their career. Some people have affairs. Kate is looking for this connection in new, meaningful work. Both Kate and Greg are struggling with those timeless questions: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? He confronts all that: Who am I now? Why am I here? What holds me to the earth anymore? Where am I going? I have a friend who talks about the last third of her life, about entering Act III; she asks herself, what do I want this journey to be, how do I want it to end? Those questions are in this real comedy of manners. There are big questions in this, but were allowed to laugh at our own foibles as humans, yet explore some serious questions with a lightness and affection. I think it will be a charming evening in the theater that will let you feel good about being alive and about caring about people or animals, whether you have a fish or a cat or a dog.

until every home is a safe haven for the family that it shelters To Prevent. To Protect. To Prevail.condential 24-hour crisis line: 239.775.1101 www.naplesshelter.org www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 Will Stutts: Being Frank NancySTETSON nstetson@floridaweekly.com ARTS COMMENTARY God, in a business that is not survivable, simply because I had something that I could do. It provided an intensive learning experience. Ive experienced so much in the theater that it takes others so many years to experience, he says. As a result, I cant wait to get up on stage. Nothing is going to throw me in a flip. When you perform as Mark Twain on a metal platform during a thunderstorm in the public square in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., then nothing really bothers you much any more.A theatrical characterThis month, Mr. Stutts brings Frank Lloyd Wright to Theatre Conspiracy. The play, which was nominated for the Barrymore Award for Outstanding New Play, looks at the tumultuous life of the architect/designer who changed the way we look at buildings. Mr. Wright created the carport, Mr. Stutts says, and, He created the whole idea, which exists to this day, of open spaces between the communal area and the kitchen, a counter that separates the kitchen and the family room, he says. Up until then, the dining room was its own separate box. Many of those things using natural lighting are still used today as the norm for most houses. At first, he adds, Many people didnt like them at all. He readily agrees that Mr. Wright was egotistical, bombastic and opinionated. In the basic sense, theatrical, he says. It was just a part of him. The creativity and the genius were a part of him as well. Why do a theatrical treatment of an architect? Because Frank Lloyd Wright and his persona are as theatrical as you can get. You have every sense of drama that you can get, every element from one spectrum of the human experience to the other. He suffered financial difficulties; was arrested for immorality; and ran away with the wife of a client, leaving his own wife, only to have his mistress murdered. Most of the characters Mr. Stutts portrays on stage possessed a particular expertise at promoting themselves, realizing that eccentricity was one of the ways to do so. Look at any of them, he says. Mark Twain basically began wearing white suits most of the time to make himself more conspicuous I think part of it is calculated. It makes them stand out. Frank Lloyd Wright did the same thing. Combined with his expertise, it was the eccentricity that caused him to have clients. All these people were doing exactly what Paris Hilton and everybody else does today. They were constantly in the business of notoriety of themselves. I think Frank Lloyd Wright was rather a genius, and I still appreciate his designs. There are people who revere him to this day, but just as many people who didnt like him at all, and still dont. The Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia commissioned Mr. Stutts to write the piece in 1996. This was more than a decade before Nancy Horans popular Loving Frank and TC Boyles The Women hit the bestseller lists. A biography of Mr. Wright had just come out then, and though Mr. Stutts hadnt read it, the producer at the Walnut Street Theatre did and thought the architects life was ripe for theatrical treatment. Madison Opera in Madison, Wis., had performed an opera about Mr. Wright called Shining Brow three years earlier, but Mr. Stutts wasnt aware of any plays about the architect.Neither bio nor documentary His theatrical version follows the format he uses in most of his one-man shows, he says. The objective is to give the audience a feeling that they have met the character, that theyve been in the presence of Frank Lloyd Wright or Edgar Allan Poe or whomever. Theyre not biographies, theyre not documentaries, because you cant do that. Frank Lloyd Wright is an hour and 20 minutes long. And for that time, I dont think you can sum up Paris Hiltons life, someone as uninteresting as that. There is no effort to be comprehensive. Frank Lloyd Wright is presented as the architect greeting potential apprentices and their parents at Taliesin, the architects summer home near Spring Green, Wis. Mr. Wright was notorious for charging apprentices who worked for him a steep tuition, while getting free labor from them. They got to study directly with him, but he got work out of them. They were doing all the fundamental drafting work, Mr. Stutts says. The thrust of that was to perpetuate his ideals and ideas and to make money. Not to be forgottenThe key to writing these shows and portraying these people is the little kernel of vulnerability within them something about them that goes beyond the basics of ambition or drive or ego or competition A desire to live and be immortal, Mr. Stutts explains. And the only way to do that is to leave something behind that wont be forgotten. Thats why the ancient pharaohs had the pyramids built, and why people donate millions to have their name put on a building, he says. I think thats what everybodys looking for, what everybody wants, whether they know it or not: Let me be convinced that my being here was important, and that I wont be forgotten. I am vast/I contain multitudes, the poet Walt Whitman once declared. That could very well be actor Will Stutts motto, because he undeniably contains multitudes. including Walt Whitman. For more than four decades, Mr. Stutts has written and performed one-man shows, portraying a variety of famous people such as Tennessee Williams, Mark Twain, and yes, Walt Whitman. Locally, hes been seen as a witty and urbane Noel Coward on stage of the Florida Repertory Theatre, a wise-cracking Tallulah Bankhead at BIG ARTS on Sanibel and a moody Edgar Allan Poe at Theatre Conspiracy (a performance he reprises at Sanibels BIG ARTS on Jan. 26.) also in Fort Myers. According to Mr. Stutts bio, no other actor has worked as much or as extensively in the one-man genre, with the exception of Hal Holbrook, who began portraying Mark Twain in 1954. Born in Alabama, Mr. Stutts has often claimed hes a second cousin to Ms. Bankhead. Its probably more distant than that, he admits. Tallulah said that anyone born and raised in Alabama is related to everybody else born and raised in Alabama. That takes care of that. There is a relationship, but its probably further back than second cousins. Mr. Stutts, who attended Yale Universitys School of Drama, has appeared in seven Broadway shows, including Spoon River Anthology, Night of the Iguana, Richard II and Present Laughter, acting with people such as Colleen Dewhurst, Will Geer, Agnes Moorehead, George C. Scott and Richard Chamberlain. He fell into doing one-man shows while in school; in an American literature class, the instructor, knowing Mr. Stutts was also majoring in theater, asked him to do a presentation on some of the authors they were studying. It was popular, and Mr. Stutts continued doing them, even after school. Performing one-man plays became his fall-back job when he wasnt in a show. So instead of being like my friends, fine actors, many of them, who between acting jobs would tend bar and drive cabs, I would go tour my one-man shows. Frankly, I thought it was something that would fade out after a while, but 42 years later, Im still doing it Ive been able to survive, thank COURTESY PHOTOSWill Stutts as Frank Lloyd Wright... ... and as Edgar Allan Poe. >>What: Frank Lloyd Wright >>When: Jan. 7-22 >>Where: Theatre Conspiracy at the Foulds Theatre, Alliance for the Arts, 10091 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers >>Cost: $18 ($10 for students) >>Info: 936-3239 or www.theatreconspiracy.org in the know >>What: A Journey Through the Mind Edgar Allan Poe with Will Stutts >>When: 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26 >>Where: BIG ARTS, 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel >>Cost: $36 ($15 for students) >>Info: 395-0900 or www.bigarts.org

PUZZLE ANSWERS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 C9 GIVING New iTECH course exemplifies public/private collaborationForwarders. Backhoes. Skidders. Pipelayers. Cold planers. Kunckleboom loaders. Fell bunchers. Road reclaimers. Telehandlers. Harvesters. Graders. These are the types of machines that heavy equipment mechanics are familiar with operating. With the guidance of Don Fites, the former CEO of Caterpillar, Immokalee students including The Immokalee Foundations Vocational Success students are learning how to work these machines, too. Through the new Heavy Equipment Mechanics training program at iTECH, foundation students receive training in heavy equipment operation, production and repair that gives them valuable handson experience and direct preparation for the workplace. More than two years ago, The Immokalee Foundation introduced Mr. Fites to iTECH Principal Dorin Oxender, who had the ambition, passion and space for a diesel program but no funding. The former Caterpillar executive assured the school leader that would not be a problem. A public/private collaboration was developed, raising more than $500,000 with the support of Mr. Fites; Pat Kelly; president of Kelly Tractor; The Caterpillar Foundation; The Immokalee Foundation; and The School District of Collier County.

Men in Black NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 C11 The Naples Players Films on Fifth series presents the awardwinning Austrian film Revanche (Revenge) at 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16, in Blackburn Hall of the Sugden Community Theatre. In the demi-monde of Vienna, Alex, an ex-con, plans a bank robbery before fleeing to the south with his girl, a Ukranian prostitute. The disastrous fallout from his attempt entangles others in a complex web as he seeks refuge in his grandfathers rural home. Critics have praised Revanche as an absorbing morality tale about the way life never turns out as planned (Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman); for Spielmanns final reckoning of accounts, unexpected, subtly satisfying (Anton Biel, Eye for Film); and as good a thriller as youll see this year (Ian Freer, Empire Magazine). Noted writer/director Gotz Spielmanns film was nominated for an Academy Award and received the Berlin International Film Festival Directing award, as well as another nine awards. Revanche runs just over two hours, is R-rated and is subtitled. Films on Fifth is sponsored in part by Karen Van Arsdale of Premier Properties. Subscriptions were offered for the six-film season; however, some seating for individual films, at $12 per person, is available at the Sugden box office, 701 Fifth Ave. S., two weeks prior to each screening. Next up after Revanche is the Swedish film You, the Living, showing at 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 13. In a series of 50 interconnected vignettes filled with wry Nordic humor, the absurdist masterpiece by Roy Anderson explores the dark and light sides of existence and the complexity of the human condition. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun Times describes You, the Living as a film like nobody else has ever made, a comedy with a twist of the knife. The film is not rated.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 FLORIDA WRITERS Hidden History of Everglades City & Points Nearby, by Maureen Sullivan-Hartung. History Press. 128 pages. $19.99. Local and regional histories have come into vogue in recent years, especially those that savor and save a vanishing or already vanished way of life. Its clear that Maureen Sullivan-Hartung loves her topic, and her industry in seeking out the facts, tales and personalities of the Everglades City area is commendable. As both a freelance writer and as a reporter for the Everglades Echo, the author has developed a keen sense of where the story lies. The individual portions of the book in many cases originally periodical pieces are usually well shaped; however, they havent always been recast to flow smoothly into one another, nor are they arranged for maximum effect. The whole is somewhat less than the sum of its parts, but one can savor the parts. The book begins with a history of the Everglades City area (once called Everglade), figured as Floridas Last Frontier. This introductory section underscores the importance of the key player in the regions history, Barron Gift Collier, and his leadership role in making development of what became Collier County possible through building a major stretch of the Tamiami Trail. The author details this engineering feat, recognizing the talents of David Graham Copeland. Ms. Sullivan-Hartungs descriptions of the construction equipment are impressive, as is her discussion of law and order taming a frontier society. She continues to draw the history of the city proper through an examination of its major buildings, their genesis and changing uses. Along the way, readers are introduced to prominent families and businesses, to significant events and to a way of life in transition. Portraits of pioneers and colorful characters give humor and flavor to the readers journey. The section on Harriet Bedell, Deaconess of the Everglades is particularly intriguing. In a chapter on special events, Ms. SullivanHartung pays attention to the annual Seafood Festival, the dedication of Everglades National Park, the visits of Hollywood filmmakers to the Everglades City environs, the impact of several major hurricanes and the curtailing of the illegal square grouper (marijuana) industry by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The author offers a great deal of variety as she builds our understanding of Southwest Floridas fringe. Later chapters focus on distinctive nearby communities. One treats Chokoloskee Island, notable for the Smallwood Trading Post where commerce with Native American tribes took place and where tiny cemeteries hint at family histories. Once again, readers can enjoy portraits of pioneers and colorful characters, including C.G. McKinney, known as The Sage of Chokoloskee, and Loren G. Totch Brown. A chapter on Copeland, Jerome and Lee-Cypress reviews these small communities, which were not always as small as they are today. Revealed in this section is the fascinating story of the Lee Tidewater Cypress Company, a logging enterprise that for a decade or so ruled the local economy. Additional treatments of important buildings and colorful citizens flesh out the chapter. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung closes her book with a history of Ochopee, once a modest boomtown with a sizeable packinghouse, and as is her pattern with a remarkable character portrait, this time of Clara McKay, known as Mama Hokie. Readers, be patient with the stylistic infelicities that threaten, on occasion, to undermine this otherwise engaging, vibrant and useful publication. Its a treasure of local color. More than 70 black-and-white illustrations, carefully selected and arranged, help bring the many interrelated stories to life. Philip K. 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.The hidden world of the receding past in Everglades City philJASON pkjason@comcast.net SULLIVAN-HARTUNG s y ve rPark the visits o f Grand Opening

Those who devote sales to paintings, figurines and other depictions of animals find that sales are better for cats, then dogs, then horses, then chickens and roosters, followed by pigs and maybe frogs. But birds are probably the most popular of all. Emile Galle (1846-1904) is best known as a maker of cameo glass. He opened his own factory in Nancy, France, in 1873 and made cameo glass, enamel-decorated glass and art glass in the art nouveau style. But he also made unusual pottery from about 1874 to 1904. Galle pottery is not as well-known as Galle glass, and it is rare. Collectors today like all Galle pottery, but most intriguing are his many figures of cats, each about 10 inches long. The cats have human expressions and are decorated with flowers and other designs. The cats sell today for more than $500 if in perfect condition. Q: I have a J.K. Rishel Furniture Co. desk that must be more than 50 years old. Please give me some information about the company.Cats beat dogs when it comes to Galle potteryKOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING terryKOVEL news@floridaweekly.com A: The J.K. Rishel Furniture Co. was founded in Hughesville, Pa., in the late 1800s. By the early 1900s, the company was headquartered in Williamsport, Pa. Rishel continued making furniture until at least the mid-20th century. Some Rishel pieces, particularly those 100 years old or more, sell for thousands of dollars. Pieces from the mid-1900s attract less interest and much lower prices. Q: I have a strange metal picture made with bullet holes. I have heard that this type of bullet picture might be valuable. Can you tell me something about it? A: Bullet drawings are made by shooting bullet holes into a target. The technique was made popular by Texan Adolph Toepperwein (1869-1962) in the early to mid 1900s. After a brief stint as a newspaper cartoonist, he performed as a marksman on the vaudeville circuit and later in a traveling circus. In 1901 he became an exhibition shooter for the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. He and his wife, Plinky, toured the country giving shooting exhibitions for more than 40 years. He ended each show by drawing an indians head with bullet holes shot into a board. Silhouettes of indians, cowboys, cartoon characters and Uncle Sam were made by several hundred bullet holes spaced a half-inch apart on a sheet of tin. Other shooters also made SEE KOVEL, C19 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011

It was hung in the Phillipsburg, N.J., railroad station in1929. It has square openings at the bottom that were supposed to display the month and date, but the printed pieces are missing. I would appreciate any information about this clock. Where can I find the calendar parts? A: Calendar clocks have dials or hands that indicate the month, date and day of the week, and sometimes the phase of the moon. They were invented in Europe in the 1600s. John Hawes of Ithaca, N.Y., was granted the first patent for a calendar clock in 1853. Calendar clocks were popular in the United States from the 1860s until the early 1900s. Prentiss Clock Co. was founded in New York in about 1870. It became Prentiss Calendar & Time Co. in about 1880 and Prentiss Clock Improvement Co. in 1897. Prentiss Improvement Clock Co. was known for its calendar clocks and long-running clocks. Some could run for 60 days before being rewound. Most small clock companies like Prentiss bought clock movements from Seth Thomas and other well-known clock companies. Companies that supply parts for clocks are listed in the directory on our website, Kovels.com. You also can try searching the Internet for companies that provide replica parts for old clocks. Type the words calendar clock parts into a search engine. Q: A dear friend of mine gave me a demitasse set she received as a wedding gift in 1946. She never used the set. The sets only identification is a paper label on the coffee pot that says Brad Keeler Artwares. Can you give me more information about dishes he designed? A: Brad Keeler (191 3-1952) started modeling clay figures, mostly birds, in the mid1930s. By 1939 he was working out of a ceramics studio in his familys garage in Glendale, Calif. Within a short time, the popularity of his lifelike bird figurines led him to lease space at Evan K. Shaws American Pottery Co. in Los Angeles. Shaw liked Keelers work so much he included Keelers figures in the giftware line he sold to the trade. After Shaws pottery burned down in 1946, Keeler opened his own plant in Los Angeles and expanded his production lines to include vases, bowls, ashtrays and tea sets. So your set dates from 1946, the year your friend received it as a gift. Keeler died of a heart attack in 1952 and his business closed the following year. Sets of Keeler dishes do not interest collectors as much as his animal figures and lobster dishes. T ip: T he more a charm for a charm bracelet moves or makes noise, the higher the price.

River Bar River Bar OPEN Join Jack s Club Great food!Cold drinks!Good times! never Best www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 Whether it was overspending on holiday gifts, a resolution to stick to a budget in the New Year, or simply greater awareness of the precarious nature of the economy, we all seem to be seeking bargains. What that means in the overall marketplace remains to be seen, but for wine lovers, there are more good, bargain-priced wines available than ever. Wines priced at $20 and below now account for more than 90 percent of wines sold in the United States, according to the Beverage Testing Institute, a private independent company that tastes and reviews wines, beers and liquors.There are excellent wines from around the world in this price range, primarily made by small, lesser-known producers in spots such as South Africa and Spains Bierzo district.But there are also well made wines made by high-profile producers that are available at very reasonable prices, including Chateau Ste. Michelle in Washington State, Peter Lehmann in Australia and Kendall-Jackson in California. This week I have listed several wines worth tasting. Some are my picks, while others come from local retailers. From Jessica Fialkowski of Decanted Wines in Naples: Pavilion Merlot Reserve 2008 Sonoma County, California ($15): In my opinion, this merlot is better than some that are two or three times the price, Ms. Fialkowski says. It is deep ruby and purple with flavors and aromas of black cherries, currant and chocolate. The fuller flavor profile makes it the perfect wine for non-merlot fans as well. Corvidae Mirth Chardonnay 2009 Columbia Valley, Washington ($15): This wine is aged in 100 percent stainless steel, says Ms. Fialkowski, and is refreshingly clean and vibrant with flavors of green apple, lemon and pineapple. It displays the fruit without hiding it behind oak aging. Jason Adams of Real Wine in Pinebrook Plaza in Fort Myers offers the following: Fantail Merlot 2005 Morgenhof Estate, South Africa ($16): This merlot is a happy medium between new and old world styles, Mr. Adams says. It will have good fruit combined with the Old World earthiness. It is really nice to have a wine in this price range with five years aging. La Vendimia 2009 Palacios Remondo, Rioja Spain ($13): This wine is a blend of garnacha and tempranillo grapes, says Mr. Adams, giving it great aromatics and slight spice on the finish. Its medium in body and ready to enjoy. Here are a few of my suggestions, which are widely available and reasonable priced: Dr. Heidemanns-Bergweiler Riesling QbA Mosel 2009 ($12): I last tasted the 2008 vintage, and this wine is consistent in quality every year, with flowery aromas of peach and rose, fruity lime, apple and mineral flavors and a nice finish. Peter Lehmann Barossa Shiraz 2008, Australia ($17): This classically styled shiraz has inky dark color, with a rich mix of dark fruits, plum flavors and aromas, and good spice on the end. Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Chardonnay 2008 ($16): A significant upgrade from the ubiquitous Vintners Reserve, this wine is fuller bodied and crisp with flavors of limes and pineapple, hints of grapefruit and a light touch of oak on the long finish. Ravenswood Vintners Blend Zinfandel 2007 California ($12): Well-known for high quality zins, this entry-level wine has flavors of blueberries and black cherries, balanced with spice and hints of oak and tannins on the finish. Juan Gil Monastrell 2008 Jumilla, Spain ($15): I have tried this wine many times and continue to be impressed. It opens with a pleasant berry nose, dark purple and cherry color, dark cherries and plums on the palate and a satisfying round mouth-feel, leading to a long finish. Chateau Ste. Michelle Horse Heaven Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2008 ($14): A great selection from Washington, the nose is citrus and apple, with slight herbal notes on the palate. This one is light, crisp and refreshing. Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Private Bin 2009 ($20): Ample fruitiness, both on the nose and the palate. With citrus, passion fruit, lime and grapefruit, the flavor is crisp, clean and racy. Ponzi Pinot Noir Rosato, Willamette Valley 2009 ($20): This beautiful ros offers strawberry and cherry nose, followed by watermelon and strawberries, with excellent balance and refreshing acidity. Tormaresca Neprica Puglia 2008, Italy ($10): This is a well made, food-friendly wine crafted by the Antinori family (you know, the ones who started the Super Tuscan wine movement). Made from a blend of three grapes, the wine has good nose and flavors of cherry, nicely balanced with acid and a smooth finish. Make it your New Years resolution to find some of these flavorful, well made wines that will please the wallet as much as the palate. jimMcCRACKEN vino@floridaweekly.com Resolve to drink fine wines at great prices this year VINO PALACIOS REMONDO / COURTESY PHOTOLaVendimia PAVILION WINERY / COURTESY PHOTOPavilion Merlot Po l a m s b ry w w e s P u g is w f t f a f r t w w a P C P W il l Th is ber r by ries refr e P V int d 1 u v u i n s d el 1 2): u al v el u e i es n d s

ed 2006 Allegrini La Grola ($70) as soft but with power, and he was correct. A blend of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, syrah and Sangiovese grapes, it had soft tannins but robust flavor that worked well with our appetizers and entrees.I enjoyed it with the soup of the day, a rich, creamy pasta fagioli ($11), full of firm cannellini beans, thick, flat noodles and vegetables. Id have preferred the soup to be more than lukewarm, but chose not to send it back since it was wonderful in every other respect and the room was now full of hungry customers. Cool and refreshing was a salad of shaved fresh fennel, pecorino cheese, black olives and an orange slice ($11). The delicate anise flavor of the fennel was a marvelous match for the sharp, slightly salty cheese and olives. Considering that the lasagna alla Bolognese ($25) is one of the chefs specialties, I felt compelled to try it. We also chose a nightly special, zuppa de pesce ($34), which is an Italian version of bouillabaisse. Neither disappointed.

Its doors remain open in Naples and Bonita Springs. Mea culpa The lasagna contained no marinara or ricotta. Instead, the chef combined organic ground beef, veal and pork, layering it with tender noodles, a touch of Parmigiana Reggiano cheese and just enough bchamel sauce to lend a creamy note. It wasnt as pretty as some of the other dishes, but it was a superb rendition. The zuppa de pesce consisted of a large bowl filled with mussels, giant shrimp, scallops, yellowtail and calamari in a delicate tomato broth. Two crostini were thoughtfully provided for sopping up some of that succulent sauce, which we did. For dessert, we shared a small, heartshaped chocolate cake paired with coconut semifreddo which translates to semifrozen with a drizzle of rich, dark chocolate sauce over both. The cake and sauce were warm and rich, the semifreddo was creamy, full of toasted coconut and a cool counterpoint to the chocolate. Mr. Tripputi suggested glasses of brachetto dAcqui dessert wine, a slightly sweet, sparkling red, to accompany the dessert and, once again, he was right. Despite the fact that the restaurant was full for most of our meal, our server and server attendant made regular checks to see how we were doing, and Mr. Tripputi visited almost as often himself. I cannot imagine being made to feel more pampered or indulged than at this lovely little restaurant. Its been a long time since Ive visited Italy, but dinner at Caffe dellAmore was as close as it gets without leaving the country. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 6-12, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 One of the treats of traveling in Italy is driving in no particular direction and happening on a tiny trattoria in an equally diminutive town. More often than not, the food, hospitality and wines are superb, satisfying not just the appetite, but the soul. The chef/owner is apt to be welcoming guests, chatting with regulars and making newcomers feel as if they belonged, too. Id bet that many who discover Caffe dellAmore in Naples experience a similar sort of wonder at the Italian marvel upon which they have stumbled. And for many thats just what they do its tucked into the middle of Charleston Square, at the corner of Gulf Shore Boulevard North and Banyan Boulevard.

Submit event listings to Cuisine@floridaweekly.com. food & wine CALENDAR e, s tr aco m/ 0 e Caffe dellAmore re-creates authentic taste, feel of ItalyWith just 40 seats, reservations are strongly recommended. Chef/owner Fabio Tripputi, born and raised in Italy by a wine-making family, creates perfectly rendered dishes from organic produce and meats, imported specialty items and a passion that permeates it all. As if thats not enough, his wife, Kelly Lee, performs much the same sort of magic with the desserts.Mr. Tripputi is clearly enamored of his all-Italian wine list, and for good reason. It would be considered extensive even for a far larger restaurant than this one. Caffe dell Amores website claims that a meal there is like a trip to Italy without a passport. I couldnt have phrased it more eloquently. Even the room looks as if its been plucked from a charming villa and transported whole into its current spot. The lower half of the walls possess a faux marble finish. Above that, creamy beige walls bear intricate Italianate stencils filled with delicate fleur de lis, stylized fish and the requisite cherubs. At the center of each is a painting in a gilded oval frame. Velvety mauve chairs, thickly upholstered with high backs, surround all but one of the tables. That one (at which we sat) had more utilitarian woven chairs, which, though not quite as luxurious, were comfortable nonetheless.Both our able server and Mr. Tripputi offered their services when it came to selecting a wine. While we looked over the list and the menu, a server attendant delivered a basket containing slices of springy artisan bread. No olive oil or butter came with it and we soon discovered why: It was perfect on its own. Olive oil gave it a rich flavor and moist consistency; a sprinkling of salt and herbs on top added just enough flavor.Mr. Tripputi described the wine we select-Its not always on the menu, but when zuppa de pesce is one of the nightly specials, order it. A warm, heart-shaped chocolate cake paired with house-made coconut semifreddo and topped with dark chocolate sauce is a delicious dessert meant for sharing. Shaved fennel topped with pecorino cheese, black olives and a slice of orange makes a light and refreshing appetizer at Caffe dellAmore.KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYLasagna alla Bolognese is one of chef/ owner Fabio Tripputis signature dishes. la c o t a ni c i n g f P us t a c s o a o g a br fully t hat succ u e even Awarmheart-shapedchocolatecake s rn g d f re T he or ri c o r ga e r i of o j j fu are n g e a-
