But Shakespeares plays were meant to be performed, of course, not just read. And for locals with a passion for the Bards work, opportunities to see it performed here in Southwest Florida are sorely lacking. Now that could change.

In the eternal calculus of change, one thing remains constant: Public officials, whether elected or appointed, work for you. And what they do or say in the course of that work is yours.

Patterson. Gene was editor and president of the St. Petersburg Times, and I was a callow young reporter from Alabama seeking to step up in the world. Genes office was my last and most intimidating stop in the process of nailing down a job at his newspaper. Gene was (and still is at the age of 87) a lion of American journalism. A diminutive guy who hailed from a dot of a town buried deep within Georgias Great Gnat Belt, Gene had a Jimmy Cagney swagger and a legendary resume which made that swagger not only appropriate, but damn near mandatory. He had been awarded a Silver Star and a Bronze Star with Oak Leaf cluster while serving in the Armored Division of George Pattons Third Army (hence his newsroom nickname: The Tank Commander). He had won the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing in 1967 as the fearless, crusading editor of the Atlanta Constitution during the most trying and violent days of the civil rights struggle in the Deep South. Almost biblical in their carefully constructed cadences, his columns thundered with moral authority and flowed like poetry. From Atlanta, Gene moved to The Washington Post as its managing editor, and later he taught political science at Duke University before finally settling in at St. Pete, where he turned the Times into one of Americas finest daily newspapers. As we sat in his office and discussed this and that, I informed Gene that I felt as if I knew him, although we never had met. How so? I grew up in Atlanta, I explained, and I recall many mornings when my father slammed the paper down on the breakfast table and said, Man, that Eugene Patterson is one Grade A son of a bitch! Genes hands flew heavenward as he roared with delight. Well, at least your dad read me, he said after the laughter had subsided. Thats what counts. (Gene offered me that job my son of a bitch anecdote notwithstanding and I spent six happy years at the Times.) Now, as I embark upon the journey of writing a column that will henceforth appear in this space in Florida Weekly, Genes observation has been on my mind. The relationship between a columnist and his readers is special. You may dislike a columnists views but still read him regularly and avidly. The late Bill Safire, who crafted speeches for the odious duo of Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew before alighting at The New York Times, is a fine example. I rarely agreed with the ultra-conservative Mr. Safire, yet I read him with great appreciation and anticipation. He was a master of language and logic and a tough old bird to boot. His arguments and opinions were well reasoned, and he certainly was not afraid to tackle any subject. Above all, he made me think. What more could a reader ask? A good columnist challenges a readers beliefs and assumptions. And if hes really good, he does it in a way that not only informs but entertains as well. A wise, bourbon-soaked city editor in Birmingham, Ala., once told me: If a storys dull, it doesnt matter how worthwhile or high-minded it is. Whatever point youre trying to get across will be canceled because no one will make it all the way through piece. Remember this: NO DULL STORIES! Also, I have little use for columnists who use their forums as platforms for mindless provocation. These hucksters confuse hubbub with intellectual stimulation. Theres nothing wrong with getting under the skins of your readers, but goading solely to see what reaction you can elicit is not why I became a newspaperman. Simple as it may seem, my fervent wish is that my columns will be read. Nothing more, nothing less. If you agree with what I set down, thats wonderful. If you dont, thats okay, too. My father truly believed Gene Patterson to be a wild-eyed, liberal son of a bitch who threatened the foundations of Southern society as it existed in the 1950s and 1960s. Yet he never missed a column, and Id bet that, deep down, he harbored grudging respect for Gene and for the courage he displayed in presenting his convictions to a readership that, for the most part, did not share or embrace them. About three years after that day in Genes office, I began writing a column for the St. Petersburg Times. A year or so into that assignment, an old grease monkey at a service station noticed the name Cornwell on my then-wifes credit card. You related to that guy at the newspaper? Hes my husband. Sorry, lady; hes a bastard. Susan (a Southern belle of impeccable manners and upbringing) was appalled by the mans effrontery, and she indignantly related the story to me that evening. Thats terrific, I said, leaving her in a state of profound stupefaction. He reads me. Heres hoping you will do the same.

Thats what the House Republicans, when they were last in the majority, renamed french fries, after France refused to support the invasion of Iraq. It seems like renaming fries might be just about the extent of food regulation that some in Congress are willing to support. The new Republican majority threatens a barrage of investigations. California Republican Darrell Issa is the new chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Issa has been tweeting about the subjects he intends to investigate: CONTINUED INITIAL OVERSIGHT INVESTIGATIONS LINEUP: Wikileaks, the safety of American food/medicine and effectiveness of @FDArecalls ... The timing of his tweet on food safety was impeccable, coming just one day before President Barack Obama was scheduled to sign into law the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, one of the last bills passed by the House before Congress recessed in late December. The new law will give the Food and Drug Administration authority to order a food recall, among other tools intended to protect people in the U.S. from food-borne illnesses. Believe it or not, before now, the FDA could only recommend a recall, not order one. The new law wont come in time to help Shirley Mae Almer. She died on Dec. 21, 2008, after becoming infected with salmonella, which she contracted from tainted peanut b utter. Almer and at least eight others died of the illness, caused by King Nut peanut b utter and other products made using infected nuts from the Peanut Corporation of America. Two years have passed since Almers death, and her family has just filed suit in federal court. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports at least 714 people were sickened by the outbreak in 46 states. The CDC says food-borne illnesses cause millions of people to get sick every year, sending 128,000 to the hospital and killing 3,000 thats more than eight people a day. The American Public Health Association, a member of the Make Our Food Safe coalition, celebrated the bill, which, it writes, will finally begin to address the dangerous gaps in our nations woefully outdated food safety system. Just because a bill is signed into law, though, doesnt mean it will get funded. Republicans in Congress can still hold up funding (as it seems they will do for sections of the health insurance reform law passed last year). Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., who sits on the Appropriations subcommittee that funds the FDA, told The Washington Post: No one wants anybody to get sick, and we should always strive to make sure food is safe. But the case for a $1.4 billion expenditure isnt there. Really? Its comforting to know that Kingston doesnt want anybody to get sick. But that doesnt alter the fact that millions do. When it comes to food safety, as with airline safety, mine safety, pick an industry: Regulations save lives. Nevertheless, Darrell Issa, reported Politico, sent letters to 150 trade associations, companies and think tanks, seeking advice on which regulations to investigate. An excerpt of the letter, posted by NBC News, read: I ask for your assistance in identifying existing and proposed regulations that have negatively impacted job growth in your members industry. Additionally, suggestions on reforming identified regulations and the rulemaking process would be appreciated. The Issa approach is similar to that of the new chair of the House Financial Services Committee, Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., who told The Birmingham (Ala.) News, In Washington, the view is that the banks are to be regulated, and my view is that Washington and the regulators are there to serve the banks. It should be clear now why the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its member corporations poured so much money into the election. A new survey done by the Union of Concerned Scientists shows a large number of government scientists and inspectors believe corporate interests are undermining food safety in the United States. Darrell Issa is the wealthiest member of the House, with a net worth of at least $160 million. He earned it from the Viper car alarm system you know, the one that blares (in his own voice), Step away from the car. Chairman Issa, protect the American people step away from the corporations. 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.Darrell Issa, step away from the corporationsPresident Barack Obamas first two years in office were for the ages: Rarely has so much been spent so wantonly with so little discernible public benefit. Nondefense discretionary spending accounted for $434 billion of the federal budget in 2008, without widespread deprivation or riots in the streets. This was the year that then-candidate Obama promised to scour the budget line by line for wastefulness and said in one of the presidential debates that his program would be a net spending cut. In 2010, such spending was $537 billion of the budget, a 24 percent increase. Throw in the stimulus and its $259 billion of discretionary spending a category that excludes entitlements and the run-up is much higher. Most departments saw double-digit increases, and some saw triple-digit increases. For the federal government, 2008-2010 were the fat years. Congress passed bills without knowing what was in them, and took the recession as warrant to spend with no serious regard to merit or consequences. The resulting bursting-at-the-seams federal behemoth is about to have its turn on The Biggest Loser. The election of 2010 wasnt about the two parties getting along, although all things being equal many people would prefer that they did; it wasnt about defeating incumbents, although many of them lost; it was about a simple three-word slogan that captured the essence of the Republican program: Stop the Spending. Since the end of the Bush administration, the Democratic plaint has been that Republicans are shameless budget poseurs. They talk like fiscal hawks, but they never deliver. The tea party opposes government only in theory. This line of argument will soon be abandoned in favor of the charge that Republicans are waging an unprecedentedly cruel assault on the federal budget. This is not Tom DeLays Republican Congress, fat and happy in Washington. It is fired with an ardor to deliver on its promise to limit government. Nearly 90 members of the Republican caucus are freshmen, shaped in the crucible of the tea party. In the context of the House Republican caucus, Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan who has a far-reaching plan to reform taxes and entitlements is practically the establishment. The first order of business is to take nondefense discretionary spending back to 2008 levels. A two-year rollback doesnt sound overly ambitious, even though it would represent more than a 20 percent cut in spending. This would be a spectacular feat, less like turning an ocean liner around than throwing it in reverse and backing it up. Every inertial force in Washington will resist this change. House Republicans will have to match their zeal with strategic canny. The larger argument over the size of government in this country is far from settled. The Republican political goal must be to make a government-cutting agenda seem reasonable and practicable rather than the obverse of Obamas spending recklessness. After a carnival of spending, it is the Lenten season. It is time to reflect on and repent of our excess. The question is no longer how much more, its how much less. The binge is over.

Kylene Barker McNeill believes in reaching for her personal best. Putting that belief into action earned her the 1979 Miss America crown and title well, that and her exquisite beauty, poise and unparalleled determination. Mrs. McNeill, who spends her winters in Mediterra with husband Ian McNeill, will spend this weekend at the 2011 Miss America pageant in Las Vegas. Airing Saturday, Jan. 15, from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, the pageant is the fourth longest-running live event on television. This year marks the pageants 90th anniversary, and Mrs. McNeill will be among 46 former Miss Americas will be in attendance. She reigned as the first Virginian to wear the Miss America crown, and one of only two gymnasts to date to win the pageant. Raised in Galax, Va., she set her sights on the crown as a graduating senior at Virginia Tech. I called my mother and said, I entered the (Pulaski County) pageant, she says, adding she sold the horse shed had since fifth grade to pay for her pageant-related expenses. She won the county pageant in May, graduated from Virginia Tech in June, earned the Miss Virginia title in July and six weeks later became Miss America. Contrary to some women who spend a lifetime pursuing the crown, Mrs. McNeills journey spanned four months. It was my year, she says. But 1979 wasnt her only memorable pageant year. Consider 2007, when the former Miss America and Mr. McNeill went to Las Vegas for the pageant. They invited several close friends and family to a cocktail party beforehand, and then surprised them with a wedding. She booked Father David online at www.lasvegas.com and bought candles at Walgreens. Katie Harman (Miss America 2002) provided the vocals. Mrs. McNeills first exposure to pageants came when she was 7 years old. That was the year her mothers sister competed in the Miss Teenage America pageant. When she was in the fifth grade, Mrs. McNeill saw Judith Ford (1969) perform gymnastics and win the crown. A self-proclaimed tomboy, she said to herself, I could do that. She began taking gymnastics, but never imagined how her decision that day would play a part in shaping the rest of her life. Despite several pageant wins during high school, when she went to college, Mrs. McNeill devoted her time and attention to cheerleading and her studies. But as graduation drew close, she recalled a former Miss Virginia telling her years before that she should compete in the Miss America system. Facing the crossroads between college and career, Mrs. McNeill figured the time was right for her to step up to the challenge. Right, indeed. It is a stepping stone to the rest of your life, she says of the Miss America pageant system. Once a former, always a former, she adds. While the experience admittedly opened doors for her, the crown comes with many obligations. (For starters, any given year the reigning Miss America travels more than 20,000 miles per month and approximately 350,000 miles per year.) Apart from the glitz and glamour of gowns and tiaras, the Miss America Organization is the worlds largest provider of scholarships for young women, awarding $45 million each year in cash and scholarships to pageant participants at all levels (local, state and national). Last June, Mrs. McNeill served as one of the judges of the 75th annual Miss Virginia competition. It was a huge responsibility nerve-wracking, she says. As an insider, you want to make sure the winner is good for the role. In the 30-plus years since her reign as Miss America, Mrs. McNeill has run a successful boutique on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach (D. Kylene Ladies Apparel) and become a published author, gardener and avid golfer (who regularly challenges her own handicap). She continues to appear for various public speaking engagements and serves on the Virginia Tech Alumni Association board of directors. She also volunteers with the Shelter for Abused Women & Children and serves on the display committee for the silent auction at the shelters 2011 Mending Broken Hearts with Hope luncheon (coming up Feb. 18 at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples). Although shes a long way from Galax, Mrs. McNeill still embraces her Virginia roots and recently endeavored to bring the Masters of the Crooked Road to Mediterra for a bluegrass event and golf weekend this March. The event is nearly sold out, and the enthusiasm Mrs. McNeill has encountered has her thinking about a new project: an exercise DVD geared to women over 50, set to bluegrass music in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. If history serves as any indication, shell have women across the nation reaching for their own personal best bluegrass-style. centurylink.com/strongerconnectedAt CenturyLink we care about technology.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011 when seeking a public job, their personal financial and tax records, the complaint filed against them, and any audiovisual, written or electronic records of their decision-making processes all of it. Here, Florida Weekly offers a brief primer describing how or where to get some public records. This is not an exhaustive guide, but merely a useful reminder that getting any information you want from government is your constitutional right. Traditional off-limits records (those include domestic violence records naming victims, ongoing criminal investigations or intelligence records naming police sources or witnesses) may sometimes be public, as well for example, some juvenile records, says Alexis Lambert, a deputy general counsel and sunshine-laws attorney in the state attorney generals office. If a juvenile is taken in for a crime that would be a felony if committed by an adult, that becomes public record, she explains. Also public record: If the juvenile has committed three or more violations of law that would be misdemeanors if committed by an adult; if the juvenile has been transferred to the adult court system; or the juvenile had been taken into custody for a forcible felony or the commission of a felony involving firearms. Records of juvenile traffic violations are open to the same extent as adult records, she notes. With few exceptions, all official records are available for the asking, a fact guaranteed by Floridas muscular sunshine laws. Florida Statute 119.01 is as clear on the matter as a bright January morning: It is the policy of this state that all state, county and municipal records are open for personal inspection and copying by any person. Providing access to public records is a duty of each agency.Whats involvedKnowledge is power, or at least advantage, when it comes to public records. So is asking. While it helps to be definitive and specific about the records you request, officials are duty-bound to help you anyway, if you cant. A simple list of rights appears at myfloridasunshine.com: You have the right to inspect and copy public records at any reasonable time, under reasonable conditions, and under the supervision by the custodian of the public records. You have the right to request public records without having to show identification, without saying why you want the records, and without making your request in writing. You have the right to request an estimate for the time and costs involved in producing your public records request. (Note: Inspecting records without copying them is free, unless significant staff time is required to assemble them. Otherwise, 15 cents for a one-sided page, 20 cents for both sides, or $1 for a certified copy is a standard fee.) You have the right to ask for a written statement of the statutory basis for denying access to public records. You have the right to be present and unobtrusively record public DOCSFrom page 1 get public recordsOFFICIAL DEFINITION OF PUBLIC RECORDS: All documents, papers, letters . or other material, regardless of the physical form, characteristics, or means of transmission, made or received pursuant to law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of of cial business by any agency.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011 NEWS A9 meetings. Do not take no for an answer. These are your records, explains Dwight Brock, Collier County clerk of courts. Be persistent. Be insistent. If people are telling you they dont have the record or they cant give it to you, make them put it in writing. You want to know why. If they say its exempt, you want to know the exemption. Clerks of court in particular are keepers of a various public documents from the records of court cases to all kinds of other public resources, says Charlie Green, the Lee County clerk of courts. Whenever individuals have business in the clerks office say, to buy marriage licenses or file deeds their business becomes public, too. Which is why county clerks are now asking people not to place Social Security numbers, bank information or any other information they dont want public, in the record. The clerks in Collier (Dwight Brock), Lee (Charlie Green) and Charlotte (Barbara Scott) also ask that individuals look over their own records in case such information has not been redacted, or removed from the record, as the post-9/11 law now requires of Social Security numbers and bank account information. That redaction has cost taxpayers a great deal of money, since clerks had to go back and remove it, document by document, which proved to be a long and imperfect process, they say. And once its disseminated, its probably impossible to track down and remove (from the public record) everywhere, explains Mr. Green. Tied into the clerks office are all kinds of other public resources. When you buy a house, a copy of your deed goes to the property appraiser. And the tax collector has information with your name and the date you bought it. All of that is available online, so its important you dont put things there you dont want to be public. Nevertheless, almost any records are your records and occasionally theyre your records to seal or put offlimits to public inspection. That can include lesser criminal offenses, if a judge determines its no longer in the public interest to know, officials say. Theres a process people can go through to do that, explains Robert St. Cyr, director of community outreach for the Collier clerk of courts. It requires a set of legal steps with the court in order to request that either information be expunged or sealed so it is not available to the public. For example, the terms of a divorce agreement having to do with childsupport payments. We had a person who called and they wanted to get the amount of their divorce monthly settlement taken out of the record in the docket. When the judge made that ruling, the information was there and we put it out as we would normally do. The lady saw it and said, The whole world could find out. So she went back to the judge to have that redacted. Other records, such as information about your property, may also be redacted a matter of contacting the property appraisers office and following the required steps. But if a record exists, you should consider it yours, unless officials can demonstrably and authoritatively explain why it isnt, says Mr. Brock. Regardless of the legal fact that most records are public, he notes, people just dont like to give them up, they dont like you to know what theyre doing. Dont let them get away with it. Theyre yours. When you visit a clerk of courts, he adds his office in particular Try to be definitive about what it is youre looking for. If you dont know, tell us why you want it, and well get the records for you. Sometimes, getting records can save people a great deal of time and money. For example, I often deal with (landlords) coming in to file eviction cases. I talked to somebody the other day who (learned) that some renters had been evicted three different times in the past. Wouldnt that be one of the things you would have wanted to know before they quit paying the rent? It was all there in the public record. Birth or death certificates (for which you may need to contact the state office of Vital Statistics), liens against properties, the selling history of a home with its tax and appraisal records, health department citations against restaurants, malpractice suits against doctors, the location by address of sexual predators, where to find unclaimed money or property all are public record, and found relatively easily and quickly. If you were wanting to engage in a partnership or contract, wouldnt you want to know whether somebody has had a breech of contract from before? You can get that off our website, adds Mr. Brock. Many records are online, but some are not the details of court cases, for example. While judgments and conclusions can be seen online for cases, the arguments, testimony and other specific information often is not. But it remains public. In that case, those who seek to know the record in detail may go to the courthouse and request it, the clerks say. Do not take no for an answer. These are your records. Be persistent. Be insistent. If people are telling you they dont have the record or they cant give it to you, make them put it in writing. You want to know why. If they say its exempt, you want to know the exemption.

Its a new choice in retirement living thats given me a new way to look at things. And the opportunity to enjoy them all. Sure has opened my eyes. One thing is for certain. Ill never arrive home empty handed again. D Excellence in placemaking: the Naples Depot MuseumI would rather excel others in the knowledge of what is excellent than in the extent of my powers and dominion. Alexander the Great, from Life of Alexander, bk. XIV by PlutarchThe notable Greek historian Plutarch was not so concerned with history in much of his writings as he was with the influence his character had on the lives and destinies of men. Where to store these writings was also influenced by the Greeks beginning with Clio, one of the nine muses, who became known as the patron of history; hence the word muse-um a place connected with the muses of inspiration. The first physical museum was erected by Ptolemy Soter (372-283), who was appointed as governor of Egypt by Alexander the Great as a reward for his loyalty. Soters rule led to much economic development, beginning with establishing Alexandria as the capital of Egypt and making it the most important city on the Mediterranean and host of the first museion (from a Greek dialect circa 300 B.C.) and great library. Soter also introduced the use of coins to Egypt no doubt to pay for entry into the museion.Floridas railroad historyLike the first museum in Alexandria, the newly appointed Naples Depot Museum didnt just spring out of thin air. Its history is connected to a much larger and intriguing Florida railroad history that began in the 1850s when the state purchased millions of acres of land for public sale and railroad construction. Because the only customers were Confederate speculators, who paid with Confederate currency, the state was in deep debt to an unsympathetic creditor, Francis Vose. However, another speculator, a northern industrialist and real estate dealer named Hamilton Disston, saw the value of what the Confederate speculators had purchased. In 1881 he cut a deal with the state to purchase 4 million acres at 25 cents an acre. With the state out of debt, the following railroad developers launched an aggressive campaign that gave birth to new villages and towns: William D. Chipley in the Panhandle; Henry B. Plant on the Gulf of Mexico; and Henry F. Flagler on the Atlantic Coast.The Naples Depot MuseumNaples was a village in 1927 when the Naples Depot welcomed the Seaboard Air Line, which was purchased by the Atlantic Coast Line in the 1930s. (The term air line in those days was merely a metaphor for the shortest distance between two points, thus the reason why so many 19th century railroads used it in their titles.) SALs Orange Blossom Special deluxe passenger train was warmly greeted by locals including Merle Harris, our beloved 93-year-old pioneer, who began the oral history programs that laid the platform for the Naples Historical Societys renewed initiatives to record local history as told by those who lived it. A first-class passenger train with Pullman car sleepers, the Orrange Blossom Special established her route as the way to travel between New York City and Florida. Her notoriety was short lived, however, when lightweight, diesel-powered streamliners called Champions came on the scene in 1939. By 1953, the Orange Blossom Specials bloom had faded into history. The Naples Depot has played several roles in its history. It served as home to USO shows for the troops stationed at the Naples airfield during World War II. In 1971, after the last train departed Naples (with Mrs. Harris aboard), the depot was slated for demolition, until the Jaycees stepped in to save the building and have it placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Later, the Southwest Heritage Foundation accepted the duty of its management as a community center. Today the Naples Depot Museum, under the umbrella of the Collier County Museums system, contains wonderful exhibits depicting the history of the city and county with a focus on modes of transportation that opened Naples to tourism.Connectivity and PlacemakingLast fall, the Downtown Old Naples Walking Map was unveiled showing the connection (and walkability) between the five business districts of downtown Old Naples. The map also points out certain downtown sites to see, such as the depot. This month, the City Council, led by Mayor Bill Barnett (who gave a wonderful talk at the opening of the Naples Depot Museum), will look again at the citys Connectivity and Placemaking plan, which the walking map effectively represents. With the opening of the Naples Depot Museum so close to this council meeting, perhaps the council of today will reflect upon the past decisions (not necessarily theirs) not to purchase the depot or the oldest house in Naples (the Haldeman House, which now resides in Bonita Springs) and how current decisions about our citys history will facilitate Naples economy and quality of place. The Naples Depot Museum is at 1051 Fifth Ave. S. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Hes been involved with Shakespeare in various aspects for nearly 30 years, including the 12 he spent living in New York City. High school students in Naples are required to read six Shakespearean plays, Mr. McKerrow points out, but there are few local opportunities for them to see any of those works performed. Were step by step proving there is a market for Shakespeare in Southwest Florida and the talent to do it, he says. Encouraged by the recent success of Much Ado About Nothing, which he starred in with The Naples Players, Mr. McKerrow moved forward with creating a 10-member board of directors and applying for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status for fundraising purposes. Shakespeare in Paradise plans to employ local actors and to bring in talent from outside the area. Investment banker Frank Klapperich is a board member who belongs to the Neapolitan chapter of the English Speaking Union and has always enjoyed the Bard. Hes hopeful that high school students especially will benefit from the new company. He recognizes the challenge, however. Starting any kind of a theater program is challenging, and Shakespeare may be very challenging, but only time will tell, he says. The success of a Shakespeare endeavor has got to be community wide. Shakespeare in Paradise is starting small, with four actors (Mr. McKerrow as Macbeth; Kathleen Butler Gravatt as Lady Macbeth; Mark Vanagas as the Witches, the Doctor and Macduff; and Mary Anne McAvoy McKerrow as Seyton). Finding a permanent home for the company and launching a complete season of full-scale productions could take years of development, Mr. McKerrow says, but this is a beginning. While the company will concentrate on the works of its namesake, he plans to produce plays by other writers, as well as modern interpretations of Shakespeare. MacBeth: A Love Story, for example, is a fast-paced interpretation focusing on the conflicted love of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Im going to try to choose things that might not be done by other companies in town, either new works or classic works, Mr. McKerrow says.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEMedicare in actionThe federal agency that administers Medicare acknowledged to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in November that the government often overpays for patient wheelchairs due to a quirk in its rules. Ordinary wheelchairs sell for $100 to $350, but Medicare cannot reimburse patients who buy the chairs; it can only pay for rentals (for up to 13 months), for $40 to $135 a month. (A 2009 audit found that Medicare allowed up to $7,215 for oxygen dispensers that were available for sale for $587 and $4,018 for a power wheelchair that cost suppliers $1,048.) Scummy churchA now-10-year-old church in Denver ministers to (as contemplated by 1 Corinthians 4:11-13) the homeless, the reviled, and the persecuted and formally named itself after the actual words in verse 13, the Scum of the Earth Church. The congregation touts nonjudgmental Christianity; owns an elegant, aging building (but holds services elsewhere because of fire code violations); and is a rough mix of anarchists, punk rockers, environmentalists and disaffected teens perhaps mainly keen on angering their parents. Scum (as church members matter-of-factly call themselves) tilt mildly philosophically conservative (though not nearly evangelical), connected only by the common belief that God is love, according to a December report in Denvers Westword. Artfully weird Among the recent works funded by Arts Council England was a painting consisting of a blank canvas, for which artist Agnieszka Kurant was paid the equivalent of about $2,300 and on which she intends to paint something in the future. Rounding out her exhibition were a sculpture that was not really present and a movie that had been shot with no film in the camera. In October, borrowing from the U.S. Air Guitar Championship (which honors self-made guitar heroes playing wild rock n roll as if they were holding real guitars), the second annual Air Sex Championship was held in the Music Hall in Brooklyn, N.Y., and eventually won by Lady C. (whose performance could not easily be described). Each contestant (solo only) had two minutes to cover all the bases: meeting, seduction, foreplay, intercourse, and, if successful, afterglow. Exposing body parts was not allowed. Questionable judgments The New Jersey Government Record Council ruled in December that the town of Somerset had overcharged Tom Coulter in 2008 by $4.04 on the $5 it collected for a compact disc of a council meeting and must issue a refund. The town estimates that it spent about $17,000 fighting Coulters appeals (and paying his attorneys fees).

Authorities charged Ms. Winkelman even though her victim was a classmate older than her. Police in Hyderabad, Pakistan, recently arrested a doctor for the increasingly suspect crime of insulting Islam after he merely tossed away the business card of a man who happened to have the last name Muhammad. According to a December Associated Press dispatch, dozens of Pakistanis are sentenced to death each year for such tangential references to the holy name of Muhammad, but the government fears that trying to repeal the law might incite Muslim extremism.

Back in the early 1900s, farmers and fishermen who settled around Fakahatchee Bay west of Chokoloskee scratched out a living growing fruits and vegetables for sale at market in Key West. And, of course, they fished. Salted mullet by the barrel brought in much-need funds. All that remains on the island today are a cemetery, cisterns, a cow dip and some unspoiled landscape with rare plants. The adventure begins at 3 p.m. with a talk about the history of the area at the Everglades National Park ranger station in Everglades City. Participants will then be ferried to Fakahatchee Island by Everglades National Park Boat Tours. Once on the island, a naturalist will lead the way to the old cemetery, pointing out many unusual plants along the path. On the return journey, the boat will pass by a rookery where the birds will be settling down for the evening. The boat will return to Everglades City around 6 p.m. Tickets are $75 per person.

The program pays for the adoption fee and care package for qualified applicants willing to adopt a cat that is 5 years old or older. The care package includes a litter box, litter scoop, litter, dry food, bowls, toys and a transport carrier. All cats are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. Studies have shown that senior citizens live longer, healthier and happier lives when they have a companion pet to care for. Many senior cats are overlooked at shelters and become despondent and lonely. The purpose of the Seniors for Seniors program is to help both the senior cats and senior citizens improve the quality of their lives by offering a nocost, one-stop-shopping opportunity. For the Love of Cats was founded in 2002. Its mission is to end cruelty to animals through the humane management of feral cats by a system known as TNR (trap, neuter, return). For more information, call 642-8674 or visit www. floridacatrescue.com. Adoption center hours at Humane Society Naples are from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The shelter is at 370 AirportPulling Road.

Avow coordinator in line for awardLouise Kenny, bereavement coordinator at Avow Hospice, has been named a finalist in the social worker category for the first annual Dorland Health Silver Crown Awards. The awards have been established to recognize organization and professional that provide exceptional services, products and information to the over55 population in their communities, ensuring that these citizens have access to excellent care, innovative programs and informative resources. Ive started the NCH New Year with four resolutions that create high expectations in areas we can control to make a difference for our community. At year-end, well take a look back and see how well we did. Resolution No. 1: Create a memorable patient experience. The mantra for NCH nurses is the one coined by ICU R.N. Laurey Ploski at the Shared Governance Committee of Nursing Practice: Nurses care here. From the threshold of the ER to the trip home from the hospital campus, we must continue to enhance the manner in which we care for our patients, who are also neighbors, friends and family. Recently, the spouse of an ER patient (who is also a renowned hospitality expert) commended our teamwork, collegiality, kindness, compassion and general bon ami and said we rivaled a five-star resort in some respects. Our ER is saving lives, decreasing wait times and increasing hospitality. And in 2011, we will only get better. Creating a memorable experience for our patients from directing a lost visitor to the right destination to greeting someone warmly is a front-line responsibility for all of us in the New Year. Resolution No. 2: Improve community health. We have a full plate in working toward this resolution. Confronting smoking, obesity, lack of exercise, too few primary care providers and environmental concerns such as air pollution lead our challenges. But were making progress. A few years ago, Collier County was filled with smokers in public places. Today, all hospital campuses in Southwest Florida are tobacco-free, as are restaurants and bars. Most tobacco users upwards of 70 percent report that they want to quit. Theres help at www.eahectobacco.com and also at the Collier County Health Department, at 252-6852. This year, lets help the other large institutions in town such as schools and government, to encourage exercise. Dr. Joan Colfer of the Collier County Health Department has begun by organizing the first combined session of more than 100 people from all agencies to collaborate on health opportunities. Although we are the healthiest county in Florida, according to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, there are still opportunities to lower the number of uninsured and the rate of teenage pregnancy among us. Resolution No. 3: Achieve a higher value for our patients. Harvard Professor Michael Porter says achieving a high value for the patient should be our greatest goal. And value, he adds, is defined by the patient, which means everyone else should be rewarded based on the patients outcome. Value is a measurable outcome divided by cost. Costs are the total costs for a cycle of care. Often, total costs can be reduced by spending more up front on prevention, for example. Working together in 2011, we resolve to improve value, reduce waste and produce better patient outcomes. Resolution No. 4: Build our own self image. This is my hospital. Thats our declaration of pride in our past accomplishments and excitement about our plans and ambitions. Years ago, people chose to leave Southwest Florida for care. Today, 12 percent of our patients come here for hospital care from out of our area. NCH has become a destination for quality health-care delivery and one of the areas leading engines of growth. Weve come a long way and have much to be proud of. In 2011, that journey continues. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Outlining NCHs resolutions for the New Year Itt d t hNCHNYith allenWEISS allen.weiss@nchmd.org STRAIGHT TALK HEALTHY LIVINGMORE TO YOUR HEALTH, A32 Whats the difference between the day before your birthday and the day after? Practically speaking, nothing at all, declares Colin Milner, CEO of the International Council on Active Aging, an organization that brings together professionals in the independent and assisted living, fitness, rehabilitation and wellness fields to dispel societys myths about aging. Whether youre turning 30, 40, 50, 65, or 90, theres no reason to assume youre doomed to decline after a certain age especially if youre doing everything you can to stay healthy and active, Mr. Milner maintains. He offers the following E-tips to help you extend a healthy life, or to embark on one if you havent yet done so:1. Expectations: If youve been following a healthy lifestyle up until now, simply keep going; if you need to make changes, anticipate succeeding, not failing and dont let age be a barrier. Research has shown that thinking positively about getting older can extend your life by as much as 7 years.2. Enthusiasm: Few people are thrilled with every aspect of their lives, but many have at least one area family, friends, work, avocation they feel good about. Identify an activity or connection that sparks your enthusiasm and make it your lifeline; try to extend that enthusiasm to other areas of your life.3. Energy: Having the energy and motivation you need to age well are hallmarks of healthy living. If youre fatigued all the time, get a checkup to try to determine the cause and the solution.4. Eating: Eating a balanced diet and attaining/maintaining a normal weight are keys to physical and mental health. If you need to lose weight or make changes in your diet, you can do it.5. Exercise: Staying physically active fuels the body and mind. If youre already exercising regularly, keep it up; if youre getting started, know your skill level, set goals, progress at your own pace and be consistent.6. Engagement: Volunteers have higher levels of well-being and life satisfaction than those who dont volunteer; volunteering and other forms of civic and social engagement can play an important role in maintaining good health in later life. Get involved, Mr. Milner urges.7. Emotions: Everyone feels down at times, but full-blown depression is a major cause of disability. If youre feeling out of sorts for two weeks or more, talk with your doctor or take an online screening test at www. mentalhealthscreening.org. In many instances, simply exercising and eating right can change your mood.8. Education: Life-long learning is important to living an independent and fulfilling life. Start now to learn a new area of knowledge or physical activity. Its good for the brain.9. Effort: Changing expectations and embarking on new behaviors take energy and effort, but the results are well worth it.10. Enjoyment: A healthy life generally is a joyous one. Savor the process of being or becoming active, engaged and truly alive, Mr. Milner says.The new year is a great time to take stock and ask yourself, Where do I want to go from here?, he adds. Emphasize the positive and dont let your age, or anyone else, deter you. The International Council on Active Aging supports professionals who develop wellness facilities, programs and services for adults over 50. The association is focused on active aging an approach to aging that helps older adults live as fully as possible within all dimensions of wellness and provides its members with education, information, resources and tools.KENNY Expert offers 10 waysto extend a healthy life

Must have coupon at time of purchaseas an all-purpose, all-weather New England farm cat and companion. The markings for which the breed is best known a distinctively marked tabby leaves the cat with a fluffy tail that somewhat resembles the tail of a raccoon. Despite the persistent idea that the large cat came about because of mating with raccoons ... well, hate to ruin a good story, but its just not true. Nor is the idea of that the cat developed from matings with North American bobcats. Maine Coon cats are all cat, and a lot of cat, for all that. White can be a fright: Not all white cats are deaf, but its certainly not uncommon. White cats with blue eyes are more likely to be deaf than white cats with eyes of any other color. As protected indoor cats, however, a deaf cat can still be a wonderful pet. Just say Aaaaahhhh!: All dogs have pink tongues, with two notable exceptions: the Chow Chow and the Chinese Shar Pei breeds with tongues variously described as purple, black or blue-black. Both breeds originated in China, and Shar Pei (the name in Chinese refers to shark skin) was in the 1970s described as the rarest breed in the world a distinction lost long ago as the breed has become more popular. Cats who chitter-chatter: Chattering is an involuntary reaction of a cat who sees something she wants very badly a fluttering bird or a feline enemy but cant get to for some reason, such as being on one side of the window when the bird or other cat is visible on the other. If the keyed-up cat could pop her knuckles or chew gum to let out that extra energy, she would. By the way, a cat thats wound up is probably best left alone. A little redirected aggression could leave you with some nasty claw tracks on your arm! Sometimes when it comes to cats, its best to keep your distance. Beware ... watch out ... dont enter: The phrase Beware of dog is so old that its Latin equivalent cave canem has been found on signs in Roman ruins. The word watch dog isnt quite as old, but it has been around a long, long time. The first known mention of it? By Shakepeare, in The Tempest. Well share more tidbits in the months ahead. Were both chronic savers of interesting pet facts, and we have files of our best clippings for future books. Were still sorting through our New Years resolutions, most of which seem to involve our pets (walk them more, brush their teeth more often). As we swing into the new year for real, we thought wed share some information from two of our favorites of the books weve written together, BowWow and MeowWow (both from HCI). Dont bite the man who names you: A handful of breeds were named for people. Louis Dobermann, a German tax collector in the mid-19th century, developed the elegant and protective breed that bears his name. Another is the Parson Russell terrier more commonly known as the Jack Russell named after the Rev. John Russell, a Victorian-era clergyman with a fondness for hunting terriers. The Cavalier King Charles spaniel was named after King Charles II, although centuries after his death. Theres also the Gordon setter, named after the Duke of Gordon.

HYPOXI combines cardio exercise with high and low pressure to intensify blood circulation in targeted areas, allowing the body to burn fat in problem areas. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011 NEWS A35 wheel is the charka. The charka can sit on the table or floor, and has a drive wheel turned by hand. The yarn is spun off the spindle. Mahatma Ghandi used the charka as both tool and symbol in the creation of an independent India. The charka appeared in early versions of the Indian flag. With charka in the center, these flags had stripes of various colors that represented the various religions of India, or later, the virtues of the people. In 1947, the Ashoka Chakra was adopted as the central feature of the flag. This wheel is a symbol of the teachings of the Buddha. So charka spins to chakra: spinning wheel to dharma wheel to the chakras also seen as wheel-like or flower-like centers of energy spinning in line down the center of the human energy body. These seven centers spin, merging and blending, kaleidoscopic. Healing spins here. And then there is the spinning out of control. We see it in the three spinning goddesses in Greek, Roman and Nordic traditions. As fate would spin it, one of the ladies spins the yarn, one measures and one cuts. How does the spin doctor spin this? How can chakras continue Did you find the directing sign On the straight and narrow highway? Would you mind a reflecting sign? Just let it shine within your mind And show you the colors that are real... Someones waiting just for you. Spinnin wheel, spinnin true. Drop all your troubles by the riverside: Ride a painted pony, let the spinnin wheel fly. Blood, Sweat, and Tears: Spinning WheelDont spin your wheels. This is not a spin class. There will be no ambiguity cherry picking, no presumption of unproven truths, no comforting euphemisms. Lets simply take the out of control downward trend and fish with revolving bait. Nothing on top. Listen: its the single play of a song. And you can gyrate, lengthen, extend, develop and narrate. Birds do it. Bees do it. Elementary particles do it. Even metal workers do it, making round hollow empty forms. This spin off means to cause a web of bias. Lets reel the real to form a fibrous fabric function turning on its axis. What a weal... One of the oldest forms of spinning MUSINGS Spin doctor Rx is the FloridaWeekly muse who hopes to inspire profound mutiny in all those who care to read. Our Rx may be wearing a pirate cloak of invisibility, but emanating from within this shadow is hope that readers will feel free to respond. Who knows: You may even inspire the muse. Make contact if you dare. w ch ta dr ha of Rx rx@floridaweekly.com designs also changed. In the 17th century, charkas sported sea monsters and large birds. The 18th century brought the spin of thistle designs and scroll handles. There are fewer extant 19th century charkas because the vessels were no longer made of silver, but of glass. So: To where does the spin doctor spin? To wheels of fortune, inner and outer? To weals of revolution? To Buddhadharma wheels that chant change and no-thing else? To hedonistic, intoxicated vessels spun of mere beauty? To norns or to news once spun from Walter Cronkite to merely spin? The fabric emerges, spun invitation, evanescent as spun cotton candy or spun glass looking at the fairest of them all fair. Fare at the rivers edge to be decided. To be continued. To be spun. to spin shining and healing, happy in the face of the spinning fates? Who can work the charkas that support newly spinning independence under this spin? Will not nihilism spin a sticky web, an undoctorable weal? Charka has yet another meaning. The word can also refer to a drinking vessel used in Russia. Here charka means vodka. And a specific amount of vodka enough to spin. In the 16th century the charka meant 143.5 ml of vodka. When the art of distilling developed, the alcohol content of vodka increased and the charkas became smaller. It was not only the size of charkas that spun through time. The typical

BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES BUS INESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011WEEK at-a-glance The Fool knowsDont get whacked by the alternative minimum tax. B6 Membership directorsSWF association meets at McCormick & Schmicks, and more business gatherings. B9-10 Luxury, inside and outMake yourself at home in the Villa Navona. B11 A coalition called Collier Gets To Work has been formed to support and promote job and economic growth in Collier County. Led by former Florida State Rep. Dudley Goodlette, CGTWs initial goal is to encourage the creation of a Collier-headquartered health and life science cluster that will ultimately help grow the area into a major biotech region. Collier County has a history of relying on unsustainable industries to drive its economy and, as a community, we must change our way of thinking about the future of this county, Mr. Goodlette says. Tourism, construction and real estate are often the first industries hit by challenging economic times such as those we have endured over the past few years. We are at a crossroads where our county can bring real jobs, economic change and tax base diversification to the table. The creation of Collier Gets to Work was spearheaded by community advocates who believe the time for change is upon us, he adds. Joining MR. Goodlette as members of the CGTW steering committee are: Jeff Allbritten, president, Edison State College-Collier Campus Richard Botthof, vice chairman, The Naples Trust Company Andy Craig, special limited partner, RiverVest Alan Horton, former editor of the Naples Daily News Chuck Mohlke, president, Fraser & Mohlke Associates Tammie Nemecek, president and CEO, the Economic Development Council of Collier County Fred Pezeshkan, chairman, Kraft Construction Scott Relf, founding partner, The Infinite Growth Group Dolph von Arx, former board chairman, NCH Healthcare System For the last three years, Collier County has been the worst economic performing region in the state, according to the Economic Development Foundations Florida Economic Scorecard. Unemployment figures released late last month by the states Collier Gets To Work aims for economic growth Would you like to join in a discussion of todays most pressing issues with some of the greatest thinkers and doers in the country and 500 like-minded Southwest Florida leaders? Would you like to be part of creating solutions for those problems? Dont just imagine it. Sign up for the 2011 Imagine Solutions Conference. A thought-leader conference with a difference, Imagine Solutions, which is hosted by the nonprofit Searching for Solutions Institute, debuted last year in Naples. Founders Tom Everist and Randy Antik based their initiative on a confluence of issues. First, they recognized the critical need for private sector leadership, from the local to the national level. At the same time, they were aware of the exceptional talent within current and former executives in the Southwest Florida area. After completing significant research on the market and extensive consultation with educational institutions, foundations and other world-caliber organizations, they clearly saw the potential to catalyze solutions to todays social problems by linking learning and leadership and along the way, to brand Southwest Florida as an intellectual destination. And so they decided to create a thought leader conference that would inspire minds for change. Similar to TED and the Aspen Institutes I deas Festival, the inaugural Imagine Solutions Conference in Southwest Florida was based on bringing thoughtprovoking ideas across a range of issues to a curious and sophisticated audience. Attendees would be encouraged to network with the speakers and one another, and to discover ways to affect change in their own community and beyond. That first conference an intensive, two-day experience that included breakfast, lunch and dinner brought four dozen prominent presenters, each of whom took 17 minutes to inform an audience of 450 on the crucial issues of the economy, energy, medicine, environment and other topics. One attendee called Imagine Solutions a sonic boom for Naples. Another described it as mind-opening, encouraging and inspiring. So the conference itself was a hit.

Its Your MoneyTake Care of it!Robert Miller MONEY & INVESTINGInvestment diversificationThe good news is that most investors understand that one way of reducing investment risk is through diversification of investment assets. More specifically, the goal is to own a combination of assets that are expected to appreciate or maintain value yet are not expected to have similar price movement, or in math terms, not positively correlated. The desired o utcome: r educed risk yet increased returns. A proactive investor might ask their investment adviser: Am I diversified? Along the way in their investment journey, they might not have gotten the right answer to that important question. Diversification is a relative measure. If you started with one stock and broadened your portfolio to 10 stocks across a variety of industries, you are relatively more diversified than your starting point. If you had a portfolio that had only U.S. equities and you expanded your holdings to include foreign equities and a wide array of bonds, then clearly you are more diversified. What is a typical mix of holdings? Credit Suisse Asset Management found that the typical exposure of the S&P Defined Benefit Pension Fund was 62 percent stocks; 29 percent bonds and 9 percent other investments (Alpha Management: Revolution or Crisis November 2005). The fact that your portfolio might be similar in mix to an institutional portfolio doesnt mean that the mix is right. The fact that the traditional investment adviser might be offering you the maximum in diversification strategies of which they know, are trained and/or are licensed to sell does not mean you are diversified. The advisers very best and well-intentioned diversifying strategies might not get you where you really need to be especially in a bear market as we had in 2008-2009. Prior to 2008, many an investor thought that some stuff in their diversified portfolio would go down in a correction but other stuff would go up or be unchanged. They couldnt imagine that all would decline. Investors found out in 2008-2009 that as their diversified U.S. stock portfolio was crashing, so were foreign stocks; they found out that as stocks were crashing all over the world, so were diversified portfolios of U.S. and foreign corporate bonds. Pray tell, what asset class if added to a portfolio has the potential to solve this diversification dilemma? What asset class has generated a positive return in excess of U.S. equities over the past 30 years, trades across a wide range of global markets and has virtually no long-term correlation to most traditional asset classes (stocks and bonds)? What asset class was the only one to appreciate in 2008? The answer is managed futures. Yes, the transparent and highly liquid, yet much maligned and misunderstood (though increasingly less so), asset class of managed futures (agricultural, energy and metal commodities futures, interest rate futures, currency futures, etc.). Managed futures have the added benefit of being uncorrelated to the U.S. equity and bond markets. The 1983 seminal study by Dr. John Lintner, a Harvard professor, titled The Potential Role of Managed Commodity-Financial Futures Accounts in Portfolios of Stocks and Bonds was recently updated and confirmed by the CME Group (which includes the CME, CBOT, NYMEX and COMEX). Dr. Lintner found that inclusion of managed futures in portfolios decreased risk. Managed futures can be owned by many a retirement planindividual IRAs, pension plans and some 401(k)s, as certain 401(k) plans allow individual selection of an outside broker/administrator. The CME also felt that the diversification benefits applied to any institutional portfolio. The results are so compelling that the board of any institution, along with the portfolio manager, should be forced to articulate in writing their justification in not having a substantial allocation to the liquid alpha space of managed futures. (Lintner Revisited: The Benefits of Managed Futures 25 Years Later by CME Group and AlphaMetrix Alternative Investment Advisors LLC, 2010.) So, before you dismiss as elusive the goal of portfolio diversification, consider how the alternative asset class of managed futures can positively impact your portfolio. Managed futures should not be confused with ETFs or long-only commodity funds which might not perform well in times of economic crisis. In addition to talking to your investment adviser about additional diversification strategies and suitability, it might be wise to talk to a professional trained and licensed in commodities who is able to sell a product that might help you in your diversification goals.

Roupas Au.D., FAAA Doctor of Audiology Agency for Workforce Innovation show Colliers jobless rate is above the statewide average of 12 percent. CGTW members believe a medical research magnet in Collier County will help reverse these troubling statistics, draw new and expand current business, create high-paying jobs and retain top talent. The announcement of new coalition comes on the heels of Jackson Laboratorys decision to withdraw its application for state economic incentive funds, a move the company says was based on its desire to work closely with Gov. Rick Scott and align the project with his goals for growing the states economy. Everyone in Collier agrees we need more higher-paying, professional jobs, says Mr. Horton. The question is how, at this point, do we get everybody on the same page and get them to understand the long-term value this kind of project would have with the right anchors, such as a Jackson Laboratory, and the right state support such as economic incentive funds. With so many Florida regions and so few opportunities, a community is lucky to get even one chance, he adds. Make no mistake; we are competing with other states, even neighboring counties, for the opportunity to establish a major biotech region in our own backyards Collier is in need of a shared vision of what we want to be as a community as we look forward to the next 10 or 20 years.

It was originally intended to apply to high-income taxpayers who take advantage of loopholes, many of which no longer even exist. But today, since its not indexed for inflation, its hitting more and more middle-income taxpayers. Its not pretty, either. Your calculations might show that you can expect a refund of $1,500, but when the AMT rears its ugly head, you might end up owing $2,000 more in taxes. Ouch! Heres where you and the AMT might meet. The characteristics below are most likely to cause an AMT liability for ordinary taxpayers who do not operate businesses: a large number of personal exemptions (such as many children); a large sum of state and local taxes paid; a large amount of miscellaneous itemized deductions; a large amount of deductible medical expenses; certain incentive stock options;The Dreaded AMT Still Lurks What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Street Name WorksQ Should I keep my original stock certificates in my bank deposit box, or should I let the company keep them for me? T.G., Riverside, Calif.A These days its routine for brokerages to hold stock certificates for investors, registering the shares in street name. This offers several advantages. For one thing, you dont have to safeguard the papers and wont lose them. Also, whenever you want to sell, you dont have to mail them back to the brokerage, which can take several days. Online, by phone or in person, you can sell your shares within minutes. Learn more about brokerages at www.broker.fool.com.Q What makes interest rates go up and down? G.Z., -Bremerton, Wash.A Interest rates are influenced by inflation and the market for debt (notes, bills, bonds, etc.). With inflation relatively low in recent years, weve enjoyed low interest rates. But when the economy appears to be growing too briskly, which can spur inflation, the Federal Reserve (led by Alan Greenspans successor, Ben Bernanke) may hike short-term interest rates via the federal funds rate. Thats the rate a bank can charge another bank for use of its excess money. When the economy is sluggish, the Fed might cut rates, as it has done in recent years. Lower rates give companies and people (including home-shoppers) an incentive to borrow money. The Fed can also change the discount rate what banks pay to borrow short-term funds from the Fed. The prime rate and other interest rates are based primarily on these two interest rates, while mortgage rates are linked to Treasury bill rates. The money markets themselves (basic supply and demand for money) also influence interest rates.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich large capital gains. If you have one or more of these factors on your tax return, you could have the unpleasant obligation of paying the AMT. You may want to consult a tax professional for advice, because there are some ways you may be able to reduce the hit, such as by accelerating some income and deferring some deductions. With any luck, the AMT will be either eliminated or overhauled in the near future. But for many years now, Congress has just been issuing patches, temporarily increasing the exemption amounts for the AMT and thereby aiming to keep it from affecting even more Americans. In December, Congress issued patches for tax years 2011 and 2012. Nina Olson, our national taxpayer advocate, has long recommended repealing the AMT for individuals. She has said that if I were given the opportunity to make just one change to the Internal Revenue Code, I would use it to eliminate the individual AMT. Lets hope that Congress listens to her one day.The money markets themselves (basic supply and demand for money) also -influence interest rates. Back in 1999, I bought shares of a company that f acilitat es business-to-business commerce and communications for about $45 apiece. The stock quickly went north of $1,000 per share, but I didnt sell. I still own it, and its been trading in the $20 range recently. M.T., onlineThe Fool Responds: Many people jumped into the booming market in 1999, not wanting to be left out. Few were asking themselves whether the prices they were paying were reasonable, and even when prices must have seemed overly inflated, they didnt sell. Consider that in early 2000, AOL announced plans to buy Time Warner for more than $160 billion, creating a $350 billion company. Today Time Warners market cap is around $36 billion, and AOL, which it spun off, is valued below $3 billion. E*TRADE, which traded for around $16 recently, had a split-adjusted price above $500 per share back in 1999! Did investors really think the company was worth that much then? Many surely didnt, but greed and shortsightedness won out. Buy stocks at good or fair prices and consider selling when they significantly exceed their real worth. The Motley Fool TakeNavistar (NYSE: NAV), the truckand diesel-engine-maker formerly known as International Harvester, recently reported earnings that were 10 percent below expectations. Fourth-quarter earnings dropped 55 percent over last years fourth quarter. Full-year profits dropped 32 percent, with revenue growth anemic at just 5 percent for the year. Yet not all is lost. Check out a key reason for the earnings drop: Navistar inked a new four-year contract with the UAW. That cost it $0.14 per share in fourth-quarter profit, but secures the company against similar labor-cost surprises for the next four years, and gives the company a contented workforce as it moves into 2011.Navistar Blows a Tire Name That CompanyI was born when a fellow bought the assets of a bankrupt pretzel company in 1971.

CEO Daniel Ustian says that the North American truck market has been depressed for three years. But Ustian expects to generate solid returns to our bottom line in 2012 and 2013. Why? Because North American trucking is about to take its foot off the brake, as ancient trucking fleets turn over, and trucking companies make good on their promises to buy newer, more fuelefficient, less accident-prone rigs. Analysts expect this trucking renaissance to keep Navistars profits growing at an annualized 9.3 percent pace over the next five years.

Several are, for example, providing counsel to a young social entrepreneur who is expanding his concept of private schools for inner-city children. Another has recommended a conference program to a national board on which he serves. Others have provided funding for speaker programs. Some attendees chose to join Initiative Teams and work with like-minded attendees to pursue important goals such as reduction in health-care costs through the use of living wills or the promotion of fitness programs throughout Southwest Florida.

Monika R. DeBenedictis has been named Entrepreneur of the Year 2010 by the Womens Council of Realtors, Naples-on-the-Gulf chapter. The award recognizes a real estate professional who has excelled in her career by developing new business initiatives, mentoring others within the profession, participating in business and professional organizations and promoting community involvement in a leadership role. Ms. DeBenedictis has been an associate with John R. Wood Realtors since 1998. Sharon Kennedy has joined John R. Wood Realtors as an agent with the Michele Harrison Group. Originally from California, Ms. Kennedy worked as a flight attendant for American Airlines and has been in the new construction and real estate business in Naples since 2001. Tim Lang has joined the Miromar Realty sales team as an associate at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club. Mr. Lang has been in the luxury real estate market in Southwest Florida for more than 12 years and has earned top producer recognition, helping more than 275 families locate and purchase luxury homes in Lee and Collier counties. He holds a degree in business from Michigan State University. Florida Gulf Coast University will of f er an undergraduate major in real estate beginning in the fall of 2012. Shelton Weeks, a Lucas professor of real estate in the Lutg ert College of Business and a director of the Lucas Institute of Real Estate Development & Finance at FGCU, says the major will build on the real estate minor program already offered at the university. I expect this will be a very attractive option for students who plan on working in real estate related fields such as environment studies, engineering, geography or hospitality, Dr. Weeks says. It will outstanding academic instruction with insights that can only be obtained from industry executives who have extensive experience in the complex process of real estate development. He anticipates the result will be a nationally recognized program that prepares our graduates for the wide range of challenges they will face in this increasingly competitive industry. Approximately two dozen FGCU students, mostly business majors, are currently enrolled in the real estate minor degree program that began in the fall of 2009. That curriculum consists of 18 hours in courses including real estate fundamentals, Florida real estate law, real estate investment decision analysis and urban economics. The real estate major program will consist of 27 credit hours. Curriculum specifics will be determined based on input from potential employers and others who would benefit from having more highly trained real estate professionals enter the Southwest Florida market, Dr. Weeks says. Their opinions will be sought primarily via an Internet-based survey that should be ready in the next month, he adds.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011 Business, started laying the groundwork for a real estate major at the university during the 2001-02 academic year, when they began work on a project that examined real estate programs across the country. The resulting paper An Analysis of Real Estate Curriculum Requirements at AACSB International-Accredited Institutions was published in 2003 in the Journal of Real Estate Practice and Education. Many universities around the country, including several in Florida, offer graduate degrees in real estate, and Dr. Weeks stresses that FGCU does not want to replicate those efforts. It is our belief that creating a top-quality undergraduate program will best serve the needs of the Southwest Florida economy, he says. The local real estate industry, he adds, presents a wide variety of internship opportunity for students in FGCUs real estate program. Weve had students (in the minor program) intern with commercial and residential brokers, real estate appraisers, real estate lenders and real estate developers, he says. Some internships have focused on specific projects, while others have a more broad emphasis similar to a management trainee program, he adds.Survey saysDr. Weeks expects the online survey giving those in the real estate industry the opportunity to comment on the new major at FGCU will be ready sometime in February. Links to it will be posted at www.fgcu.edu as well as at the websites of numerous local real estate organizations. For more information, e-mail Dr. Weeks at sweeks@fgcu.edu.

The Downtown Naples Association; The Sugden Theatre, home of the Naples Players; and The von Liebig Art Center, home of the Naples Art Association; partnered with Vergina restaurant to make the walkway a reality three years ago. Since then, thousands of residents and visitors have traveled the paved path from the Sugden Community Theatre and across Fifth Avenue South, past Vergina to The von Liebig, where names of honorees are permanently engraved on stone pavers. The Naples Players, the NAA and the Downtown Naples Association all add names to the walkway each year. The newest honorees will be honored at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13, next door to Vergina. The public is welcome to help celebrate and congratulate the following: Selected by the NAA: Susan Earl, Lety and Stephen Schwartz and Alan and Betsy Harris It is a challenge each and every year to select the Cultural Walkway honorees, says Joel Kessler, executive director and CEO of the NAA. We have many donors and volunteers that are deserving of this recognition. All three of this years NAA inductees are involved not only with The von Liebig Art Center but also in furthering the causes of other nonprofits in the community. Selected by The Naples Players: Patty and Jay Baker, Frances Pew Hayes and Denman Kountze Jr. Well known for numerous civic and cultural activities, the Bakers have helped raise more money for the Players than anyone in the troupes 58-year history. Ms. Hayes was at the forefront of raising money to build the Sudgen Community Theatre. And Mr. Kountze served as co-chair of the fund-raising committee that culminated in the construction of the theater. A substantial part of the building funds were secured through his efforts and personal contributions.

We are different creatures from men, true, but I wonder how our self-perception would change if we saw the passage of time as an opportunity to get our lives in order instead of a flowchart of diminishing opportunities. Would 30 then be an optimal time for a relationship, when we have our titles, careers and salaries established? Would we start to see our mature selves less as overripe fruit? To change perceptions, though, takes time, and Adele only has six months. For 2011, I predict a future full of singles bars. In the waning hours of 2010, my roommat e A dele took a transoceanic flight from her home in France to our place across the sea. A friend happened to be on her plane, and the two passed the time chatting as the jetliner steamed over the water. Outside the cabin windows, the final day of the year headed toward midnight. Theres nothing like New Years Eve for taking stock of what we have accomplished or not in the previous year. For me, there is always some sadness to it, as if all the anticipation of the year to come might be washed away in the regrets of the year just passed. Its a glass-halfempty approach, I know, but nostalgia wracks even the best of us when the year draws to a close. As the flight attendants served beverages on ice, Adeles friend Elodie delivered her own cold cocktail. In the New Years spirit of account-taking and project-making, Elodie pulled out a pen and grabbed a paper napkin. Then she proceeded to create a four-year relationship plan for newly-30 Adele, the sort of schemata that keeps many women awake at night. Elodie worked backward, starting at age 34, which is what Adele called her upward limit for having children. That would make her pregnant at 33. She had Predictions for a new year SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS ArtisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com Theres nothing like New Years Eve for taking stock of what we have accomplished or not in the previous year...imagined spending a year and a half with her husband before having kids, so that means marriage at 31. If she figures a yearlong courtship before the wedding, shell need to have the future Mr. Adele on lockdown by 30 So she has until June 2011 to find the man who will father her children. Of course, life is never so tidy. Yet many women have done the same, creating similar timelines and giving themselves expiration dates like grocery store produce. I often wonder if men go through the same angst, if they draw romantic life plans on cocktail napkins with their buddies. I somehow dont think so. In his new relationship book, Straight Talk, No Chaser, comedian and dating advice expert Steve Harvey says that a man is only ready to marry when hes straightened himself out. Whats that take? Mr. Harvey says a man needs to know who he is (his title), what he does, and how much he makes. If any one of those things is missing, he writes, he will be much too busy trying to find it to focus on you. He wont have it in him to settle down, have children or build a life with anyone.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011 The role in the tragic romance is a demanding one for a tenor. Many shy away from it, because it requires that the singer stay in a high spot all the time. Its relentless, Mr. Kearns says. Where the music sits for the tenor is quite difficult. And one has to be able to sit up there with some ease. If not, it can knock you off your plate, as they say. Its high-wire act, he adds. Youre up and at it from the word go. Theres no moment where you can just stroll your way through In some operas you have sections where youre not sitting in the stratosphere and you can hold back, or have respites. But not with Lucia Di Lammermoor. You have to be firing on all cylinders, to sing the tenor part, Mr. Kearns says. Thats the bottom line. Its a tough sing. He performed in Carmen in Ireland this past July and describes it as a walk in the park compared to Lucia Di Lammermoor. If I can get through this opera, I can get through any of them.Opera all the way Gaetano Donizettis opera tells the tale of star-crossed lovers from two fighting clans in Scotland. Edgardo and Lucia are lovers. Theyre meeting secretly, behind everyones back, Mr. Kearns says. But the story doesnt work out the way hed like it. Shes forced to marry another She goes a bit crazy, in true opera form. Last season, Mr. Kearns sang the part of Romeo in Opera Naples semi-staged production of Romeo and Juliet Then and Now, which also contained selections from West Side Story. (Ms. Pearce explains about a semistaged production: There are costumes and movement, but minimal furniture on stage. You perform the highlights. Its like a Readers Digest condensed version of the opera.) But this production of Lucia Di Lammermoor is a grand opera, what many think of when they think of opera: a fullout, no-holds-barred, dramatic spectacle, complete with a chorus of about 30 and an orchestra with an equal number of musicians. Singing opposite Mr. Kearns in the role as Lucia is coloratura soprano Audrey Elizabeth Luna, who made her Metropolitan Opera debut last year as Queen of the Night in Mozarts The Magic Flute. Baritone Christopher Holloway, who has previously performed with Opera Naples in La Traviata and La Boheme, plays Lucias brother. Robert Swedberg, former general director of Orlando Opera, is stage director, and Metropolitan Opera Conductor Franz Vote conducts the orchestra.Setting the stageThe performances are the companys first grand opera of the 2010-2011 season. Opening night is black-tie optional and includes a champagne reception and a fundraising auction. Tickets are $145. For the second year, Opera Naples is staging its grand production at Miromar Design Center in Estero. Its an unusual center (for an opera), Mr. Kearns says. Its a lovely venue. Its like a cruise ship, with the balconies, and were using all of that open space. Smaller companies that dont have the funding bigger opera companies enjoy often are forced be creative in the space in which they perform, he says, adding he has performed opera outdoors, in courtyards of castles and in all sorts of locations. Ms. Pearce elaborates about the grand opera at the design center: We have a set especially designed for circumstances where there isnt a curtain. Its beautiful with fjord rock formations 17 feet tall that move around into different positions, to create outdoor and indoor scenes. Fire in the bellyAlthough he wanted to sing professionally as a young man Mr. Kearns, a native of Ireland, studied catering and hotel management. He sang at weddings and at local events and kept entering contests. What kept him going? Its a case of you have to want to do it, he says. You have to have the fire in the belly, the hunger for it. If he didnt sing, hed be like a fish out of water. You need air, you need oxygen, he says. I need to sing. And its not for the notoriety, he insists. I could care less for applause, adulation and praise. It does nothing for me. I could perform for one person or a thousand. If Im singing well and am happy doing it, then thats all the adulation or praise I need. In 1993, he entered a contest called Irelands Search for a Tenor. It was a play on the word tenner, which is what Irelands new 10-pound note was called. He sang Danny Boy on the phone and qualified to become a contestant, and then had to hitchhike to Dublin to participate in the finals. He felt intimated when he heard the other contestants warming up, singing scales. A self-described country bumpkin, Mr. Kearns had had no professional vocal training. He sang The Impossible Dream from Don Quixote and, as an encore, Danny Boy. I was looking for an opportunity to be introduced to singing teachers, to just get my name out there, he says. He won the contest. I was as green as grass, as they say. I went for it, and they thought I was the best. They must have liked the raw talent. They must have thought I had potential. On the panel was Veronica Dunne, a renowned voice teacher at the Leinster School of Music, who has performed with Joan Sutherland. She instantly recognized Mr. Kearns talent. He went on to study with her for three years. I was introduced to classical music and opera, he says. Before, my idea of classical music was Broadway and musicals. It wasnt my cup of tea, as they say. The more he learned about opera, however, the more he realized he should be doing it. I had a voice and I wanted to use it to the best of my ability. Singing, realizing I was a tenor, and singing the repertoire its like the hands and the glove. Opera was the pop music of its day, he says. Whether its in duets, quartets or sextets, when you hear the singers working together and how the music is written for them, its quite phenomenal. You can have six voices all doing their own thing on the stage all at once, and you can hear it. Its exciting. Its beautifully written music unparalleled, compared to the music of today. This music has come through the centuries. Its quite amazing.Opera as actingIn 1998, Mr. Kearns became a founding member of The Irish Tenors. In addition to their native Ireland, theyve toured the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Their 10 CDs have sold millions of copies. Mr. Kearns continues to sing with the trio and also gives solo concerts, but he wants to do more opera. I enjoy it more so than anything else, he says. Its acting through music on stage. As a soloist, he mixes it up, giving his audience Irish songs, popular opera, ballads and tunes from Broadway musicals. I create a concert with an ebb and flow, moments of fun, nostalgia, despair, more fun. A roller coaster of emotions. Its what pays the bills. Its also what got him acknowledged as Irelands Finest (Living) Tenor at the Dublin National Concert Halls Silver Jubilee in 2006. (But) the opera for me is my pleasure and fun, he says. It gives me a chance to work on my voice and develop the opera craft. He sings opera because it is his passion. I can assure you, and people can tell you, its not for the money they go into opera, he says. For opera, you eat, drink and sleep this music and the score for months in advance. Then youre dragged over the coals, pulled asunder, pushed from pillar to post by the director and conductor. Whats it all for? In the end, to do a good job and sing this music thats been sung for hundreds of years, to put your stamp on it. At the end of the day, when we pass on in life, people will look on and say, Soand-so did a great job. To be remembered for something worthwhile its having a legacy.A tenor is a tenorThough a founding member of The Irish Tenors, he seems not keen on being called one. To stamp someone with the label, Irish tenor why arent Italians called Italian tenors? A tenor is a tenor. Im a lyric tenor, he says. People have invented a new (term), Irish tenor. Automatically, if people see a concert advertised and it says Irish tenor, they think its going to be all Irish music. Yes, Im a tenor, Im Irish, but I can deliver the goods, not just Irish music. I want people to know the other side of me: He can sing Tura Lura or Danny Boy til the cows come home. But when he stands up, he can hold his own with the best of them.

Call For Times and Reservations 239-765-7272 Youll fall head over heels for Sylvia NancySTETSON nstetson@floridaweekly.com ARTS COMMENTARY cast as Sylvia would be an understatement; its almost as if Mr. Gurney wrote the role specifically for her.Shes uncannily doglike, bursting with puppy energy, turning in circles before lying down, resting her head on her masters knee, going berserk whenever she hears the word out.Director Maureen Heffernans gentle touch can be seen here; shes known for her nurturing direction and letting actors take risks in discovering their character. Many of the funny parts are Ms. Damatos creation in embodying a dog. Anyone whos seen her in Florida Reps productions of Almost, Maine or A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum knows Ms. Damato possesses great comedic skill. She mines a scene for a laugh without playing a character too broadly. She also conveys the full spectrum of emotions: As Sylvia, shes coy, flirtatious, proud, defiant and sassy; one moment a tomboy, the next, a lady. In one of the nights best scenes, she curses out a cat with full New York street bravado. Ms. Damato is completely adorable and I mean this in the nicest way completely believable as a dog. The play is undeniably hers. Her transformation is assisted by Roberta Malcolms creative costume design. Early in the play, when Sylvia is a scruffy stray, her pigtails look like floppy ears and she wears a brown fur-like vest, leg warmers and fingerless gloves; after shes been to the groomer, shes fancy in a sheer black tutu and sparkly red bows in her hair. Gordon McConnell and Carrie Lund have the thankless job of playing Greg and Kate. One wonders if they ever ruefully think about W.C. Fields admonition to never work with animals or children. Although they do a gallant job, Mr. McConnell and Ms. Lund are continually upstaged by Sylvia. Kate, especially, comes off as the villain. She explains that she loves dogs but just doesnt want one in her life right now. For the most part, shes grim and negative, like politicians who dont know what theyre for and can only rail about what theyre against. Ms. Lund does the best with the material she has, but truthfully, the playwright doesnt give her much to work with. We also never see the marriage in its better moments, so its difficult to cheer for it when were so entertained by the antics of a frisky canine.Mr. McConnell is dreamy-eyed whenever hes around Sylvia, but his character comes across a little shabby at times, such as when he belittles his wifes career, referring to it as a phase some women go through. Hes a cur himself; hes not emotionally engaged with his wife, but is willing to lavish praise and attention on the dog.Chris Clavelli is a bright spot whenever hes onstage. In Sylvia, he plays three distinct and quirky roles: a philosophizing, macho dog owner who refuses to neuter his pet; an Upper East Side socialite whos so appalled by Sylvia she falls off the wagon; and a therapist of indeterminate gender. The audience loved Mr. Clavelli so much that on opening night he received well-deserved exit applause whenever his characters left the stage. Set designer Ray Recht, whos designed for Broadway and off-Broadway, has created a set thats almost Zen-like in its simplicity: a clean, modern Manhattan apartment, with multitudes of windows in the background. Greenery stage left and stage right is a dog park that quickly transforms into a therapists office and an airport terminal.Sylvia is like a big friendly puppy: funny and entertaining and sometimes naughty. You cant help but laugh at its antics.As Greg declares at one point, everyone should own a dog. The world would be a better place. Its amazing how a little four-legged furry thing can change your life so drastically. Dogs can win your heart, but they can also destroy your best pair of pumps and possibly even your marriage. This is what Greg and Kate discover in A.R. Gurneys Sylvia, when a stray dog jumps into Gregs lap and into the couples life. Greg wants to keep her; his wife just as adamantly doesnt. Playing at Florida Repertory Theatre through Jan. 23, this crowd-pleaser is part pro-canine manifesto and part portrait of a marriage wobbling in a rough spot. Like many married couples, Greg and Kate embraced the traditional roles: He worked while she raised the children and took care of all things domestic. Now their children are off to college and theyve moved from the suburbs to the city. Kate wants to make the most of the empty nest and use her talents in the bigger world. I want my freedom, she declares. Greg, on the other hand, has had enough of the working world. Hes restless, dissatisfied. He wants to do something meaningful.He wants to slow down and appreciate the world around him. I need to feel more connected to life, to living, he declares at one point. These two desires, of course, are at cross-purposes. Its a classic mid-life dilemma in many marriages. The clichd thing for the man to do is: have an affair, buy a red convertible or run off and marry someone young enough to be his daughter. Greg doesnt do any of those things. Instead, he finds a dog and brings her home. He then proceeds to lavish all of his love and affection on her, which she readily reciprocates, all the while ignoring his wife, taking her for granted. Its not a physical affair, a la Edward Albees The Goat, or, Who is Sylvia? (another Sylvia!), in which a married man falls in love with a goat. But it sure is an emotional one. Greg treats Sylvia almost like a mistress. The comedic lynchpin of the play is that the dog is played by a woman who, while displaying canine mannerisms, speaks to the humans.

Paired partners also find their relationships benefiting from the chubby cherubs attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) K eep y our keen Bulls eye focused on your target, and shake off any attempt to turn your attention elsewhere. You should get some news later in the week that might answer some questions. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Y our ear ly enthusiasm for a project might have been somewhat premature. Although you feel positive about it, you might need more information in order to make an informed decision. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) T aking on a ne w responsibility might seem like the politically correct thing to do. But even with the promise of support, was it the wisest?

Then reward yourself with a weekend of fun shared with people who are close to you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A busines s agreement from the past might need to be looked at again. Use this unexpected development to check out other matters related to it. A weekend venture proves to be rewarding. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Dont ignore that uneasy feeling about making a commitment. It could be a case of understandably cold feet, or a warning that something isnt as right as it should be. SCORPIO (October 23 to N o vember 21) A colleague could be more supporting of one of your efforts. But its up to you to make the case for it, and that could mean opening up a secret or two, which might be a problem for you.

While Tom Hanks, Hilary Swank and Meryl Streep continue to make top-quality work, Spacey hasnt had a hit in years and things arent going to get much better with Casino Jack. (OK, Jodie Foster could use some help as well, but I digress). In this film based on a true story, Mr. Spacey plays Jack Abramoff, the disgraced Washington, D.C., lobbyist sentenced to four years in prison in 2006 for various forms of fraud. The story starts with the collapse of the world Mr. Abramoff built with business partner Mike Scanlon (Barry Pepper), then flashes to two years earlier to chronicle how it all went wrong. Long story short: Mr. Abramoffs misdeeds include defrauding four American Indian tribes out of millions of dollars by promising help with D.C. gaming legislation to all and delivering to none. He also corrupted various public officials including Tom DeLay (Spencer Garrett) and Bob Ney (Jeff Pustil) with expensive gifts and trips in exchange for political favors. And to top it all off, he schemes to take over Greek sandwich maker Gus Boulis (Daniel Kash) Sun Cruise casino business based in South Florida, which leads to his idiot accomplice Adam Kidan (Jon Lovitz) getting the Mafia to kill Boulis. Director George Hicklenlooper, writer Norman Snider and Mr. Spacey are never clear on whether we should like Jack or hate him, and as a result, the movie has no center. Were so trained to root for protagonists and against antagonists that Jack is too polarizing for the films own good. So we find it heinous as he bilks nave Native Americans out of millions, admire his desire to build schools and kosher restaurants, and just think hes a loser when he does bad Sylvester Stallone and Al Pacino imitations. Most importantly, we dont really care about him or any of his associates, meaning theres no one to root for. Its a shame that the movie has no perspective, especially because it deals with such a current topic. Does anyone doubt that money controls society and, therefore, whoever has money has the most social influence? Morality and legality aside, its understandable why Mr. Abramoff did the things he did: The opportunity to make millions through moderately legal means was presented to him, and he took it. He was a product of a culture and mindset he readily embraced, though as we know, that same mindset was also his downfall. Casino Jack, much like the man himself, is conflicted about whether to embrace the man or demonize him. As a result, we end up not liking the man or the movie. Worse, Mr. Spacey falls further from the A-list in the process. Perhaps he should hire the newly freed Mr. Abramoff to put him back on the map? Dan Hudak is the chairman of the Florida Film Critics Circle and a nationally syndicated film critic. You can e-mail him at dan@hudakonhollywood.com and read more of his work at www.hudakonhollywood.com.True Grit (Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Matt Damon) A precocious 14-year-old girl (Ms. Steinfeld) hires U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn (Mr. Bridges) and a Texas Ranger named LaBoeuf (Mr. Damon) to find her fathers murderer (Josh Brolin). The acting is great and the cinematography is gorgeous, but the story is dull and slow. Its not sleep inducing, but its also not quite what it could/should be. Rated PG-13.Black Swan (Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel) Frail New York City ballet dancer Nina (Ms. Portman) has trouble learning the role of the Black Swan in the companys production of Swan Lake. Director Darren Aronofskys film is mind-bending and brilliant, highlighted by an Oscar-worthy performance from Portman. Rated R.TRON: Legacy (Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Jeff Bridges) Fifteen years after Kevin Flynn (Mr. Bridges) disappears, his son Sam (Mr. Hedlund) enters the computer world his father created, meets a girl (Ms. Wilde) and fights against his fathers alter ego/ villain, CLU (Mr. Bridges again, looking younger thanks to visual effects). The story is clearer and the visuals are less laughably bad than in the 1982 original, but flat 3-D and too much neon keeps this from being a must-see. Rated PG-13.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 WEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011 7th annual Southwest Florida Nature Festival Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center 300 Tower Road, Naples, Florida 34113 Field trips for all ages* Includes birding and plant walks, PLUS (from 9-4 Sat & Sun) SPECIALSJan. 13 cruise with "John James Audubon" on the Marco Island Princess Jan. 14 Keynote address from "John James Audubon" SPONSORED BYJan. 14-16CLASSICAL REVIEW When most of us were just awakening on Christmas morning and beginning to celebrate the day, Jorge Mester, conductor and music director of the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra, received an urgent call: The young violinist scheduled to perform Prokofievs Violin Concerto No. 2 during the Classics III concert less than two weeks later had just cancelled due to tendonitis. Could Mester find a substitute violinist on such short notice? Two hours later, the maestro had good news: Tim Fain, another rising star with whom he has performed and whose talents he has championed, was available for the concerts. The Prokofiev was part of his repertoire. Mester, who has mentored and/or promoted numerous violin greats Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Midori, Bobbie McDuffie and the inimitable Ilya Kaler, all of whom have performed here to acclaim under his baton, among them delivered yet another gold-star violinist to the Phil in Mr. Fain for the Classics III concert that took place Jan. 7. Mr. Fain was the behind-the-scenes violin player for Richard Gere in the movie Bee Season. He also plays in the current hit Black Swan, in which close-ups of his fingers and violin are seen several times. From the moment he first chatted casually with the spare but appreciative audience present for the Conductors Prelude, to the moment he finished his role during the Prokofiev, Mr. Fain had the audience eating out of his hand. He was charming and knowledgeable, to be sure. But those qualities alone cannot pave the way to greatness. And his performance that evening was precisely that: great. He plays an extremely rare violin by Francesco Gobetti; circa 1717, the instrument is one of only 20 known to exist. As a result of Mr. Fains nonstop awards, including the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Strad magazines Pick of Up and Coming Musicians and countless other kudos, this gem of a violin is on loan to him from the Stradivari Society of Chicago. The beautifully-toned instrument was an additional bonus to the fineness of Mr. Fains mastery of the haunting Prokofiev, which opens on the violins lowest note (G), immediately establishing the mood for the mysterious solo phrase that poured forth. Unlike the programs first Prokofiev selection, Symphony No. 1 in D Major, which is light and filled with energy during its first movement (with wonderful contributions by the flutes, bassoon and oboe), and ends molto vivace racing along until its abrupt end the Violin Concerto No. 2 tears at your heart, with Mr. Fains haunting opening solo repeated in the bass section and the lush cellos offering up an achingly beautiful love song. Prokofiev, who wrote this concerto the same year he composed the totally divergent Romeo and Juliet (1935), somehow managed to evade the murderous rage of Josef Stalin, who casually ordered the slaughter of millions of his own countrymen. Like Shostakovich, Prokofiev created a brooding masterpiece while living in imminent danger of death. Both composers remained true to themselves and the music that consumed their every thought.A personal noteSo what did you think of the violinist? asked a man returning to his seat with his wife following the intermission. Is he a heck of a player, or what? He went on, fairly beaming. Im the cab driver who picked him up at the airport and brought him to Naples. He gave me these two tickets for tonights concert and just signed my program for me. I looked at his program: Great hanging with you guys, Fain had written and signed the note. That unexpected act of generosity and kindness brought a couple to the Phil for their first taste of classical music up close and personal. It also elevated Tim Fain yet another notch in my admiration for him as a human being, not just a superlative violinist. The final half of the program was devoted to Beethovens oft-performed Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major, commonly referred to as Eroica. Throughout this familiar composition, the orchestra shined. With some beautiful contributions by principal oboist Judy Christy, a shimmering run by principal flutist Suzanne Kirton and great contributions by the entire horn section, it was altogether a fine performance, meriting a standing ovation at the conclusion.One rising star substitutes for another as guest violinist with the Philharmonic h v e o s w PegGOLDBERG LONGSTRETH plongstreth@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTO Carlos Miguel Prieto is second from right In this photo taken after a master class with conductor Jorge Mester, center.CONTINUED ON PAGE C13

In fact, Prieto is a former student of Mester, having studied conducting with him in a master class as well as privately. Prieto maintains a busy schedule, serving as music director for four orchestras in his native Mexico and for the Louisiana Philharmonic and the Huntsville Symphony. As charming as he was during his brief remarks in the Conductors Prelude, I found his conducting style strangely distracting and/or unnecessarily intrusive on several occasions. I had the strange sensation he was practicing a variety of styles throughout the Beethoven, ranging from conducting with both arms dangling at his sides, scarcely moving his baton, to conducting sans baton, finally picking it up to emphasize part of a movement. But both he and the Beethoven ended with a dynamic flourish, and the audience responded with sustained applause.Coming soonNext up for the Philharmonic is Pops I, A Sci-Fi Spectacular, the latest overthe-top event created by our own pops conductor extraordinaire, Jack Everly. The program showcases the music of John Williams. Its narrated by George Takei (Mr. Sulu of Star Trek fame) and also features soprano Kristen Plumley and The Sci-Fi-ettes. There are seven opportunities to let your imagination soar during performances beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18, and concluding Sunday, Jan. 23. Bring the kids. They will love it.

The gallery is at 386 Broad Ave. S. If you were wealthy during the Renaissance and were interested in the many discoveries happening around the world, you might have had a cabinet of curiosities built to display your collections of the new, the fascinating and the odd. You would have displayed the unexplained curiosities in equally curious juxtapositions because you wouldnt have known how they actually relate to each other. Fast forward to 2011 and enter Mr. Sloan and his own Cabinet of Curiosities, a cornucopia of regal animal and bird portraits set in very unconventional tableaux. Lush, beautifully crafted and very allegorical, some of the paintings pay homage to John James Audubon or Martin Johnson Head; each one makes a statement about creatures great and small, many of whom are either extinct or in danger of becoming extinct, and how we, as guardians of our planet, relate to them. An RSVP is requested for the opening reception Jan. 20 and also for Mr. Sloans talk on Jan. 19. Call 403-7787 or visit art@gardnercolbygallery.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC20 WEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011 Q:Dear Seafood Professor,We read something about a genetically modi ed salmon that can grow to twice the size of a regular salmon. Is this true. If so, how is this possible? Bo and Stacy, Naples, FL A: 239-593-5555www.randysfishmarketrestaurant.com10395 Tamiami Trail N. Naples, FL 34108 Retail Seafood Market Hours: Monday-Sunday 10am 9pmRestaurant Hours: Monday-Sunday 10am 9pm HAPPY HOUR IS BACK!Beers(domestic)$2Drafts(domestic) $2Well Drinks(one shot)$2MONDAY-FRIDAY 3pm 6pm SATURDAY-SUNDAY 11am 6pm SHIPPING NATIONWIDEVisit Paradise Shrimp Company On Line!www.paradiseshrimpcompany.com Thanks for the question Bo and Stacy. Before I answer in detail, I need to clarify that the genetically modi ed salmon does not grow twice as big as a regular farmed salmon. It grows twice as fast as a normal farmed salmon. OK, so how is this possible? Well, its possible because of a Massachusetts company, AquaBounty, that invested millions of dollars to develop the technology. Farmed salmon normally grow to market size in 3 years. But the super salmon can reach market size in 18 months. The mechanism for this is to modify a growth hormone in the farmed sh. Farmed salmon normally only grow during the warm season. So AquaBounty gured out how to transfer genetic characteristics from cold a water sh into the farmed salmon which allows it to grow all year. Thus, it grows at twice the rate of non-modi ed salmon. What does this mean for the consumer? Well, the FDA has determined that the genetically modi ed sh are identical in all respects, with the exception of the genetic modi cations, to the farmed salmon that consumers have enjoyed for years. There is no difference in taste, texture, or nutritional value. For all practical purposes the super salmon is the same protein you get from the regular farmed salmon. The critics of this technology refer to the super salmon as The Franken Fish. They are concerned that the genetically modi ed sh could escape into the environment and contaminate natural stocks. However, AquaBounty claims that their sh will only be raised in inland farms and that 98% will be sterile females. Another criticism is that there has not been enough research conducted to determine health and allergen effects of consuming genetically modi ed sh. Some groups, particularly the wild salmon producers, are against this technology for economic and market reasons. These groups think that this technology should not be allowed. The Seafood Professor has a different take on this issue. The wild sh resources are being harvested at maximum levels. The demand for seafood protein is increasing and the only way to meet demand is by ef cient aquaculture methods. AquaBounty has invested millions into developing an ef cient seafood product which the FDA says is safe to consume. The genetically modi ed salmon should be allowed on the market, but it should be labeled accordingly. This way the consumer will be aware of its status and can make their own evaluation based on market factors. The market will ultimately decide the acceptability of this product.

Seventeenth and early 18thcentury American chairs were designed with hard seats and straight backs, and few had arms. No slouching allowed. People were expected to sit up straight. Since most people worked during the day and went to bed when it was dark (there was no electricity), chairs were used for short periods of time when friends visited or the family sat for dinner. Jobs like bookkeeping or sewing were among the few that required the use of chairs for longer periods of time. By the end of the 18th century, chairs had padded seats, curved backs and arms. Some were large upholstered wing chairs made for comfort and to protect the sitter from cold drafts. Sometimes an event influenced chair shapes. Egyptian Revival chairs were created to celebrate Napoleons victories in Egypt. The chairs had winged arms and their backs were carved with Egyptian symbols like a birds beak that poked the sitter. Early Victorian designers preferred hard upholstered seats and arms for sofas and large chairs, but their chairs were curved for seating comfort. By about 1850, coil springs were invented and used with stuffing in seats. Comfort became even more important. The 20th century saw the introduction of good artificial lighting and the invention of games, radio, television and other entertainment that required seated players, listeners or viewers. So designers stressed soft cushions, padded arms and comfort. But some designers wanted a different look for furniture and once again comfort suffered. High-style included chairs in strange shapes made with hard materials like laminated wood, metal or plastic.Q: An old friend of my mothers gave me a jardiniere and pedestal marked 903 Avon and F.H. 1011. Can you tell me who made it?A: Avon Works was founded in Tiltonsville, Ohio, in about 1880. It became Avon Faience Co. in 1902 and a department of Wheeling Potteries Co. of Wheeling, W.Va., in January 1903. F.H. refers to Frederick Hurten Rhead (1880-1942). He was born in England and immigrated to the United States in 1902. He made art pottery for Avon in 1903. Rhead left in 1904 to become art director of Roseville Pottery of Zanesville, Ohio.Q: I have an all-black cameo pin that, according to my family, belonged to my great-great-great grandmother in the 1870s. It looks almost as if were made from coal. Someone told me it was mourning jewelry worn by a widow for at least a year after her husbands death. How much of this information is true? A: Queen Victoria of England went into deep mourning when her husband, Prince Albert, died in 1861. She wore black clothes and jewelry for the rest of her life. Fashionable women dressed in black, too. Black cameos were made from jet, vulcanite, bog oak or onyx, and it is difficult to tell them apart. Jet jewelry is considered the best quality. Jet is fossilized wood, a form of coal that is naturally black and can be carved. Vulcanite is a manmade type of rubber. It is lightweight and molded, not carved. The color is a dark brown-black and will turn more brown if exposed to sunlight for a long time. Bog oak is fossilized wood found in bogs. It is hard and black or dark brown, but not as shiny as jet when polished. All of these are lightweight and warm to the touch. Black onyx is a form of quartz. Its heavy and cool to the touch. It polishes to a very shiny finish. Most is color-enhanced dyed black so the color is even. It also is used for quality jewelry. Q: Many sellers on eBay have said that Japanese buyers are paying high prices for Fire-King glassware and buying a lot of it. Some say they think the Japanese are buying it to make copies that will hurt FireKings values and collectability. Or are Japanese collectors into 1950s kitchen decor? A: Japanese buyers seem to like the simple glass designs of the 1950s as much as American collectors do. The value of the dollar versus the yen makes American eBay items inexpensive at times in Japan. Of course, shipping must add a lot to the cost. But the reproductions you should worry about are those that have been made in Brazil since 2000. Q: What are naughties? A: Naughties are small (under 4 inches high) bisque figurines of women, men or Classic chairs pleasant to the eyes, pain in the tushchildren in suggestive poses. Each figurine has a hole in it so water can come out of its private parts. The most common naughty figurines are children urinating. Busts of women with holes in their breasts were also made. Naughties were made in Germany from the 1890s until the 1920s. Later, poor copies were made in Japan. Reproductions are being made, and some have been sold online. For many years it was suggested that the figures held perfume, but that seems unlikely. Unglazed bisque is not a practical container for an alcohol-based liquid.

Step up to the counter secure in the knowledge that whatever you order will be organic and healthy, whether its an all-fruit-and-vegetable smoothie (I loved the pina colada, with pineapple, papaya, mango, banana and pineapple coconut juice), a freshly made glass of juice (like The Doctor, a tangy blend of carrots, beets, celery, apple, lemon, ginger and parsley) or the solid food. The menu changes daily, but always features a vegetarian entre as well as poultry and seafood, lots of side veggies, salads and wraps. The salmon cakes were excellent, as were the smashed yams and pinto bean side dishes. I also liked the dilled potatoes and bright, still-crunchy collards. A large, chewy chocolate chip cookie and a slice of strawberry shortcake proved that food can be healthy and delicious at the same time.

Chef/owner Raphael Rottiers and partner Alfredo Ruiz make customers feel immediately welcome in this lovely, unpretentious Golden Gate establishment. Dinner starts with a bowl of roasted corn kernels and three flavorful (but not spicy hot) pepper sauces for dipping. The mixed ceviche was exceptionally good and the portion was large enough for two. Also good were the Conchitas a la Parmesana (scallops on the half shell baked with Parmesan cheese). A delicious sashimi-like dish, Dua Ttiradito, featured marinated fish served with pepper sauces. Incas wari fish is seared on a griddle, seasoned and baked to perfection then served with a mango salsa, corn and cilantro. Another standout was the Lomo a la Huancaina, sliced beef tenderloin with red onions and creamy queso blanco. Not only is the food wonderful, the most expensive dish is $17. Dont miss this one.

As befits a pub, the beer selection is extensive and theres an intriguing list of ciders as well, including Ace apple cider, which has a lovely pear essence. The ploughmans board comes three ways. We tried it with smoked ham and Brie, both of which were tasty. The fish and chips were just right, enhanced by tangy homemade tartar sauce. Though beautifully plated, the chicken curry was under seasoned. Those wanting a zesty version should tell their server when ordering.

An added bonus is that breakfast is served all day. A jerk chicken omelette had lots of well-spiced chicken, onions, tomatoes, peppers and Jack cheese, served with home fries and toast. My companion enjoyed an ahi tuna melt with flamingo cole slaw (sweet and colorful) served with what the menu called Addictive Fries (crisp fries sprinkled with garlic powder and other seasonings).

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 13-19, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 to yet another table of customers whose patience looked to be coming to an end. Ive eaten at Passage to India many times over the years. On most of those occasions, the food was consistently good and service was usually smooth. My last meal at the Bonita Springs location was similar to this one. Whatever has changed needs fixing. Here are some suggestions that would vastly improve the experience: If the staff cannot keep pace, hire more people. In this case, Id recommend more servers and more kitchen help. Train that help. A server attendant almost fell face first onto our table as he stretched from one end to grab a dish at far side rather than simply walking around to get it. Serve some papadom as soon as customers sit down. Passage to India sells these crisp, seasoned chips two for $2.50 as an appetizer.

Dont skimp. At the prices charged here, ingredients should be top drawer, seasoning should be bold and portions should be generous. Sometimes change is good. A new space, for example, can re-energize and reignite creative juices. Sometimes, however, it can prove overwhelming. Based on a recent visit, I fear Passage to Indias move south was one of the latter variety. After many years in a cozy little spot on Bonita Beach Road, the restaurant relocated last summer to North Naples to the much larger storefront previously occupied by Two Brothers Baci. Passage to India retained the rich burgundy walls of its predecessor, adorning them with colorful pictures and Indian bric-a-brac. Tables are draped with linen tablecloths topped with sheer fabric covered in sequins. Theres a full bar, a more cosmopolitan atmosphere than the previous location had and far more seats. But those additional seats seem too much for the staff to handle. We waited 20 minutes before what appeared to be the lone server was able to make it to our table to take a drink order. Wed been seated for close to an hour before the first morsel of food arrived. Despite the fact that we were ravenous by then, much of what we sampled fell far short of the mark. Take the dhal soup ($5), for example. Customarily thick and full of split peas, onion, garlic and tomatoes, this version was watery and bland, with only hints of the seasonings that should shine in this lively soup. We took a couple of spoonfuls and left the rest. The server attendant cleared the plate without asking why we hadnt eaten it. The breads had problems, too. The filling in the onion nan ($3.50) was so salty that the onions were barely detectable. Paratha ($4), an unleavened whole wheat bread, is usually flaky and topped with butter, but this version was heavy, doughy and dry.Vegetable pakura ($5) consisted of slices of potato, eggplant and cauliflower florets coated in a bland batter and fried. Sides of onion chutney and tamarind sauce added some flavor.

Lamb korma ($17.99) chunks of lamb cooked in ginger, garlic, coriander and cumin with almonds and potatoes had plenty of salt but not much seasoning. We had asked for it to be moderately spicy, but it was served mild. The shrimp rogan josh ($17.99) was similarly mild, although ordered medium. It should have a robust red-hued sauce, but this one was more of an orange and lacked that wondrous mlange of seasonings for which Indian food in general and this dish in particular is known. A large plate of chicken and vegetable biryani ($17.99) contained plenty of basmati rice, but again, the seasonings ginger, garlic, coriander and cumin were barely discernible, and the chicken and veggies were tough to find in the mass of rice. A side of curry sauce and a sprinkling of almonds, raisins and coconut, gave much-needed flavor to this dish.
