Arts previewEvery performance, show and festival you need to know about. C1 The next big thingLocal inventors know tinkering can turn into profits. B1 DATADIVING Call it a sign of the times or simply different tastes between the generations, but most children, according to Naples family wealth consultant Tamara Surratt, just arent interested in their parents things. And as heirs to their familys art collections, most prefer the cold hard cash to a Monet or Warhol above the living room sofa. Its very likely your kids arent going to love your collection, says Ms. Surratt, whose Legacy Family Office firm creates art disposition plans and comprehensive wealth transition plans for multi-generational, high net worth families. I have a couple, a client, who had their children go through the house and pick the art they wanted. The kids picked just two the most expensive pieces. Theyre probably going to sell them when mom and dad are gone. Art collecting it and then protecting it, even after death was the subject of a recent estate-planning program called The Art of Wealth, The Wealth of Art led by Ms. Surratt and including collecting, legal and valuation advice from Naples fine art consultant Barbara Hill, Naples attorney Anne Dalton and Vivian Pfeiffer, a senior vice president for Christies. When asked by Ms. Surratt if they had a disposition plan for their collections, none of the 30 or so audience members, some art collectors MIKE REAGEN IS A GOVERNMENT MAN, ONE WHO BELIEVES GOVERNMENT should be part of the solution, not the problem. But which government: The so-called big government? Not according to the numbers. The numbers say there is no big government in Collier County, contrary to popular belief. Instead, all federal, state and local government agencies together account for only 11.3 percent of the workforce and not quite 14 percent of annual wages, which means 88.7 percent of the 143,000 workers here and more than 86 percent of the annual wages come from private enterprise. But those numbers mean little in a vacuum; and Mr. Reagen, the president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Dont assume your art collection will be a beloved heirloom ROGER WILLIAMS A2 OPINION A4 HEALTHY LIVING A38 PETS OF THE WEEK A41 BUSINESS B1 NETWORKING B8 REAL ESTATE B11 ARTS C1 EVENTS C6-7 BOOK REVIEW C18 SAVE THE DATE C24-26 SOCIETY C27-29 PRSRT STD U.S. POSTAGE PAID FORT MYERS, FL PERMIT NO. 715 INSIDE www.FloridaWeekly.com Vol. III, No. 19 FREE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011POSTAL CUSTOMER Gnomes in the GardenFamilies will have fun finding fanciful friends in hiding.

Its the government. Its the media. Its the liberals (no, wait, its the conservatives). Its the politicians. Its the cops. Its the criminals. Have you ever met anyone whose mother named him Lawyer or Liberal? Or Government, or Media, or Politician, or Cop, or any other? Probably not. But you have met Tom, Dick and Harry, or Jane, Janet and Gerri. How about Rick or Christina? Theyre the lawyers. Theyre the government or the media. Theyre the liberals or conservatives, the cops or the crooks (or the performers). From now on, we need to start blaming them. And You. And Me. Us. At the root of my thinking lies this notion: Everything we do in public life is personal, because everything we do in some way affects everyone else. And it becomes part of the texture and text of our shared lives as Collier County citizens, as Floridians and as Americans. Maybe even as humans. In that sense and in this republic, every one of us is a leader. Drive off the road and die because youre texting on the cell phone? It happened last week in Lee County and that driver was to blame. Its a selfish thing to do, texting while you drive not malicious, but profoundly selfish and were all part of its consequences, eventually. Fire several of your employees because of recession without taking a pay cut yourself? Then fail to look in on them or help them find other work? Youre to blame. Youve proved to be a weak leader and an uncharitable boss. All of us will become part of your greed, eventually. Whine about the lawyers or the politicians or the media? Youre a complainer, not a contributor, and youre to blame (especially if you didnt vote). Well all have to be part of your attitude, eventually.On the brighter sideHelp a school kid understand something? Let the driver trying to reach the exit lane across traffic slip in just in front of you? Send something out of the blue to the oldest relative you have? Pick a couple of the many young men or women wandering through the airport with short hair, duffle bags and camo utility uniforms and buy them a beer or a sandwich? Pay for the groceries of the obviously struggling single mom in the supermarket line in front of you? Tell one good, true story to somebody who listens, and tell it as hard as you can? Thats leadership. Thats text and texture. Far from vanishing stone-like into the vast sea, your public act becomes the next wave rising in the great tide of our lives. Two things happened this week that suggested all this to me two things that reminded me once again that anyone who claims its not personal when he takes an action that has consequences in anybody elses life, is blowing smoke. One, Christina Aguilera bombed the national anthem before the Super Bowl in front of roughly 110 million Americans and foreigners. And two, Gov. Rick Scott introduced a new budget to the state legislature, seeking to cut $4.6 billion from the current $70.3 billion plan. He also proposed $2 billion in property tax cuts, which ups the ante, and suggested doing away with 8,700 state jobs, most of them currently held by Tom, Dick and Harry, or Jane, Janet and Gerri. Not in his office, though. The executive office staff increased, in his new plan. I offer a hats off to both, for taking responsibility. Ms. Aguilera sang The Star Spangled Banner without all the correct words, but she employed every decibel of her big, bluesy tribute voice. In tone and modulation, she acknowledged every female blues singer who ever lived. And she paid stylistic tribute, if faintly, to the most powerful and honest national anthem ever given to an American audience: the Jimi Hendrix national anthem. The late Mr. Hendrix, an Army veteran of the 101st Airborne Division who grew up and served in an apartheid America before the 1964 Civil Rights Act, didnt offer something pretty when he fired up his guitar on Aug.18, 1969, in front of almost 400,000 revelers at Woodstock. His anthem of anguish and courage came with no words at all, unlike Ms. Aguileras. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through, she said, taking responsibility. As for Gov. Scott, whose office telephone number is (850) 488-7146, he says, Hold me accountable. Thats what I like. Along with his amputated budget, the governor also proposes an end to many of about 700 regulations most of those targets as yet unnamed. If youre not rich like the governor, get ready to feel the pinch. Especially if youre one of about 44,000 school children in Collier County, or one of the roughly 85,000 citizens over 65 here, who may need a lot of health care or assisted-living care (a euphemism for nursing home care) in the coming years. Most of the cuts will come from about $24 billion in taxes harvested directly from people in Florida. More than $19 billion of that pays for public education, health care for the old or poor, courts and other services provided traditionally by government, according to the pundits. Makes you wonder what would have happened if the other guys had won the race for governor. But at least theyre taking the responsibility for losing it, along with their consultants. After the election, I sat down with my consultants, and their names were John Walker, James Beam and Jose Cuervo, my Hispanic consultant, Rod Smith told the St. Petersburg Times. Chairman of the Democratic Party in Florida, Mr. Smith was gubernatorial candidate Alex Sinks running mate in November. When I finished with them, I was done with that consultation, he added. So thats whose fault it is: Rod, John, James and Jose. He might not admit it, but I think he should have picked at least one woman to help him through either good times or bad: Marie Brizard (French liqueurs). Fess up, Rod. Or drink up, either one.

From: the Egyptian People. Stop supporting Mubarak. Its over! so tweeted my brave colleague, Democracy Now! senior producer Sharif Abdel Kouddous, from the streets of Cairo. More than 2 million people rallied throughout Egypt Tuesday, most of them crowded into Cairos Tahrir Square. Tahrir, which means liberation in Arabic, has become the epicenter of what appears to be a largely spontaneous, leaderless revolution in this, the most populous nation in the Middle East. Defying a military curfew, this incredible uprising has been driven by young Egyptians, who comprise a majority of the 80 million citizens. Twitter and Facebook, and SMS text messaging on cell phones, have helped this new generation to link up and organize, despite living under a U.S.-supported dictatorship for the past three decades. In response, the Mubarak regime, with the help of U.S. and European corporations, has shut down the Internet and curtailed cellular service, plunging Egypt into digital darkness. Despite the shutdown, as media activist and professor of communications C.W. Anderson told me, people make revolutions, not technology. The demands are chanted through the streets for democracy, for self-determination. Sharif headed to Egypt Friday night, into uncertain terrain. The hated Interior Ministry security forces, the black-shirted police loyal to President Hosni Mubarak, were beating and killing people, arresting journalists, and smashing and confiscating cameras. On Saturday morning, Sharif went to Tahrir Square. Despite the SMS and Internet blackout, Sharif, a talented journalist and technical whiz, figured out a workaround, and was soon tweeting out of Tahrir: Amazing scene: three tanks roll by with a crowd of people riding atop each one. Chanting Hosni Mubarak out! Egypt has been the second-largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid for decades, following Israel (not counting the funds expended on the wars and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan). Mubaraks regime has received roughly $2 billion per year since coming to power, overwhelmingly for the military. Where has the money gone? Mostly to U.S. corporations. I asked William Hartung of the New America Foundation to explain: Its a form of corporate welfare for companies like Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics, because it goes to Egypt, then it comes back for F-16 aircraft, for M-1 tanks, for aircraft engines, for all kinds of missiles, for guns, for teargas canisters (from) a company called Combined Systems International, which actually has its name on the side of the canisters that have been found on the streets there. Hartung just published a new book, Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex. He went on: Lockheed Martin has been the leader in deals worth $3.8 billion over that period of the last 10 years; General Dynamics, $2.5 billion for tanks; Boeing, $1.7 billion for missiles, for helicopters; Raytheon for all manner of missiles for the armed forces. So, basically, this is a key element in propping up the regime, but a lot of the money is basically recycled. Taxpayers could just as easily be giving it directly to Lockheed Martin or General Dynamics. Likewise, Egypts Internet and cell phone kill switch was enabled only through collaboration with corporations. U.K.-based Vodafone, a global cellularphone giant (which owns 45 percent of Verizon Wireless in the U.S.) attempted to justify its actions in a press release, It has been clear to us that there were no legal or practical options open to Vodafone ... but to comply with the demands of the authorities. Narus, a U.S. subsidiary of Boeing Corp., sold Egypt equipment to allow deep packet inspection, according to Tim Karr of the media policy group Free Press. Karr said the Narus technology allows the Egyptian telecommunications companies ... to look at texting via cell phones, and to identify the sort of dissident voices that are out there. ... It also gives them the technology to geographically locate them and track them down. Mubarak has pledged not to run for reelection come September. But the people of Egypt demand he leave now. How has he lasted 30 years? Maybe thats best explained by a warning from a U.S. Army general 50 years ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower. He said, We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. That deadly complex is not only a danger to democracy at home, but when shoring up despots abroad. 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.When corporations choose despots over democracyEvery revolution against autocracy is initially stirring. Who wouldnt have cheered when Louis XVI was forced to convene the Estates General, or when a liberal provisional government took over from Czar Nicholas, or when the rank and file of the Shahs army refused to fire on protesters in the streets? All these inspiring events were mere prelude to catastrophe, making the years 1789, 1917 and 1979 synonymous with the onset of tyranny and bloodshed. This is why our applause at the imminent political demise of Egypts Hosni Mubarak should be decidedly provisional. For all his ruinous failings and disgusting crimes, we may miss him when hes gone. In Cairo in 2005, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice famously said that we had pursued stability at the expense of democracy in this region here in the Middle East and we achieved neither. Her statement is now hailed as prescient, but it was wrong by any reasonable standard. During the first three decades of Israels existence, Egypt fought wars with the Jewish state in 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973. Since the beginning of Hosni Mubaraks presidency in 1981, there have been none. Most of the credit goes to Anwar Sadat, who signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979 that cost him his life. Yet, a 30-year peace between the largest, most important Arab state and Israel is no small feat of stability. As for democracy, we didnt actively trade it for order, but took Egyptian political culture as we found it. After decades of British occupation, the revolution of 1952 ev entually gave rise to Gamal Abdel Nasser. Historian David Pryce-Jones calls him the first Arab to have created a police state, complete with the whole grim and bloody apparatus of control through bureaucratic terror. Nasser died in 1970, but his system lived on. Egypt has been ruled by emergency decree almost continuously since 1967. The Egyptian police state didnt exist because of American support (initially it was pro-Soviet); we supported it because it existed, and over time became pro-American. What now? It is heartening to see Egyptians revolt against the indignities and misery visited upon them by Mubarak. But marches and riots and even elections are one thing. Creating a functioning, liberal democracy is quite another. Egypt has no experience with true constitutional democracy, and its strongest institution is the relatively Westernized military. We should urge Mubarak to leave without attempting a crackdown that will further radicalize the streets and risk splintering the army (the meltdown of the Iranian army in 1979 was a boon to the ayatollahs). Then, with luck, the military can manage a gradual transition to a more open political system. The Bush administration undertook a push for democratization that created a tentative democracy at a great cost in Iraq, but otherwise petered out. Weirdly, it may be that the slimy anti-American info-activist Julian Assange, by leaking documents detailing the extravagant corruption of Tunisias since-deposed dictator, has inadvertently done more to stoke an Arab Spring. We know how hopeful it is now in its early days; we dont know how its going to turn out.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 Commerce, abhors a vacuum. So he adds this information to fill it: In four American counties judged most similar to Collier in wealth, income, population and other factors, Colliers public footprint is the smallest. In Charleston County, S.C., for example, almost 25 percent of annual wages come from public (government) sources. In Lane County, Ore., the figure is about 21 percent. In Sonoma County, Calif., the number is about 17 percent, and in Palm Beach County, its almost 15 percent. How do public and private entities in those counties work together to preserve and increase their wealth, and what might this tell us in Collier County? Nothing yet, because its only a small slice of a much greater data pie still to be served, Mr. Reagen promises. For him, busting the big government myth was just the first step in a new and detailed study he asked researchers at Hodges University and at FGCU to undertake a study comparing Colliers public and private sectors with those of the most similar counties in the United States. Its not the typical activity of a chamber of commerce leader (the breed has been known to run around cackling paradise all day long), but Mr. Reagen is not typical himself. Hes worked for government and academic institutions and has thought broadly from within and without government systems about how to harness a communitys public and private resources, thus adding to its wealth and productivity. Public and private work cultures, he ventures, each form a great circle of community life. Where they intersect, huge business opportunities exist. In the middle of a recession, we should ask ourselves: Are there things theyre doing other communities that we could learn from, or things they do we would like to know about? he wonders. The comparative look relying on detailed data analysis will take a couple of years to complete, he predicts and it could result in an unprecedented communication between Collier officials and business leaders and those elsewhere, all of them attempting to determine best practices. The term describes the precise application of knowledge and technology to economic systems. The next wave of data will come in the next 30 or 40 days, and well roll out a look at the business climate in next couple of months, he explains.The researchers at workMeanwhile, at a chamber-sponsored Wake Up Naples breakfast on Wednesday, Feb. 16, the primary researcher in Mr. Reagens project, Dr. Aysegul Timur, professor and chair of business administration at Hodges University, will introduce a variety of comparative data. Dr. Reagen (he holds a PhD in communications research and social psychology from Syracuse University) came to me and said, We need to do something, Dr. Timur says. He drew me two circles the public and private circles and where they intersect, he said, This is what Im after: everything we can learn about this intersection. Data is just one part of the project, Dr. Timur adds. Everything were doing is aimed at areas of opportunity, chances for the public and private sectors to work together. Thats exactly what drew Dr. Timur to the United States from her native Turkey more than a decade ago, she says, praising the American version of government and business as partners. I believe in the private sector. So this chance to bring the public and private sectors together is a wonderful opportunity, she adds. This is how you create entrepreneurs. Thats the power. For example, those seeking the power need to understand not only that 56 percent of Colliers 337,000 residents remain in the labor force; or that the countys per capita income is $36,387; or that the main employer in Collier is NCH with 4,000 workers; or that the biggest revenue producer is Pacific Tomato Growers with sales of $545.6 million but also how those numbers and facts stack up against other places. The researchers looked at Charleston County, S.C.; Durham County, N.C.; Pinal County, Ariz.; Lane County, Ore.; Polk County, Iowa; Sonoma County, Calif.; and at Marion, St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties here in the Sunshine State. Dr. Timur and her team of researchers are now engaged in contacting each local government and the agencies in it, as well as business leaders in the four most similar counties, to collect data. The 12 counties the team first considered were culled from about 30 cited in such magazines as Fortune and Forbes, Mr. Reagen says. That selection was done in part by Eric Weiss, now studying public administration as a graduate student at Florida Gulf Coast University. We looked at a number of variables, in particular the taxable value (of the county), Mr. Weiss explains. Naples has a really high taxable value. Last time I checked it was $130 billion its gone down since then, but in other counties we examined, some had a value as low as $2 billion. Thats how we excluded some of them. The overall calculating of the data, he adds, took more than a month. If knowledge is power or at least an essential element of best practices this seemingly unique effort by a chamber of commerce and local volunteer talent (the university researchers have offered their efforts without charge or cost to the chamber or the community) might offer private and public leaders advantages they never imagined, as the economic and cultural ground seems to shift under them. In our lifetime, every institution weve grown up with is changing, Mr. Reagen observes. We dont know where its going: media, religion, politics, financial systems, government and so on. So we take data right around us and extrapolate it out approximate data and we make pistol judgments. Were in middle of a restructuring of the whole economy. I dont know what it means, and you dont, either. But were not alone in this. And we might as well learn from each other, and avoid the snapshot data. For example, Mr. Reagen and the researchers decided to look at so-called passive wealth in Collier County, which amounts to 25.08 percent of all income, and then compare it to passive wealth in other counties. None of the other counties report numbers anywhere near the Collier figure. Instead, they range from a low 4.92 percent in Durham County, N.C., to 16.17 percent in Palm Beach County. What does this mean? Mr. Reagen asks in the January issue of the chambers monthly magazine, Business Currents. Simply put, it means a greater portion of earned income in Collier County as a whole comes from non-wage and nonretirement sources (than) any of the other counties in this study. What leaders do with this information remains to be seen. Thats why we started this data investigation to look at facts, to find them first, Dr. Timur explains. The more facts, the fewer assumptions and the less likelihood of mistakes in judgment, the researchers believe. We went to the census, we looked at other data on private companies through Reference USA, a private database I went to the population, the unemployment rate, aggregate household income data and we were able to see the total earnings in those counties plus how interest income or dividend income or rental income affected it, she says. Those are passive incomes. Its important to know how those are structured because we can then see how the economy is distributed across the board. If the stock market remains volatile, she suggests and a significant portion of the local service-oriented economy relies on dividends, for example then government can take steps to support businesses in ways it may not have previously. There is no best way to do this, theres no model already out there, but a model is what we want to emerge from the data, she notes. Were meeting with community leaders, and our goal in a few months is to find models of other counties working well together public-private opportunity models and learn from them. What happens then in Collier County or other American counties paying attention is anybodys guess. Whats happening here now is not a matter of guesswork, but a fact: the creation of a new model a best practice for chambers of commerce aiming to support their business communities, anywhere. DIVINGFrom page A1Alright, we admit it: Theres nothing surprising about chamber of commerce leaders who talk about the virtues of the places they get paid to represent. Which is what Mike Reagan does, too, when he paraphrases former President Ronald Reagan: It can always be morning in Naples. But the brainy Mr. Reagen he holds a doctorate degree in communications research and social psychology from Syracuse University can offer more than mere happy talk (theres also some of that) when he lists his favorite reasons to celebrate Naples. Mr. Reagan likes data. Here, then, is an abridged version of his Top 10 list, complete with data points. 10: Best Beaches Naples 8 miles of beaches rank in the top 10 in Florida and offer 40 access points. 9: Unique Environment 200 species of birds and 600-year-old bald cypress trees in the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary alone. More than 28,000 trees in Naples 270 landscaped medians. Three community centers. Four parks. Seven neighborhood parks. 8: Good Government No tax increases in two years, no reduction in services, a reduction in property taxes and staff in the city of Naples (which secured a Triple A bond rating and kept a fund balance that was 50 percent of expenditures). More than 200 lane miles of road construction completed since 2000. A state-of-the-art code enforcement and blight prevention program, and local banks that abated all 1,537 code violations on foreclosed properties at their own expense (a total of $1.9 million) before taking title. 7: The Arts They contribute $250 million to the local economy each year. Fifty-four arts groups, eight museums (more than any other city in Florida) and 100 galleries and artist studios. 6: Schools Received an A for the second year in a row.

She explained the tax implications of various scenarios, including federal estate taxes as high as 35 percent for estates valued above $5 million and the 28 percent capital gains tax paid by collectors should they sell their pieces. She also said heirs eager to settle an estate can lose up to 70 percent of a collections value after taxes and transaction fees in a hurried auction. The IRS wants their tax revenue, Ms. Surratt said. For many collectors and their heirs, charitable donations offer the best tax breaks and future for collections and allow them to be enjoyed in a public place. Ms. Hill urged new collectors to take baby steps, doing their homework to learn about their favored artist or style. Explore and learn, she offered. Visit museums and galleries, go on art tours and attend lectures and seminars. She also noted that even the most impressive collections arent limited to high-worth individuals, signaling out PBS documentary subjects Herb and Dorothy Vogel, who started their contemporary collection decades ago on their postal worker and librarian salaries. They collected what they could afford and would fit in their tiny New York apartment, she said. Today its one of the most important collections of contemporary works. By donating their collection to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, Ms. Hill said, the Vogels practiced her credo of being stewards for future generations. Share your art, she urged. Open your home to other collectors and tours, and loan your collection to a credible museum. Those moves even have the potential for increasing a collections value by adding to its provenance, a historic pedigree that appraisers and other collectors consider when valuing a work.Art as investmentArt is increasingly being looked at as a potential investment. In the past the wealthy had racehorses and yachts, Ms. Hill said. Now theyre buying art because it can appreciate in value. Ms. Dalton offered a legal perspective into the art world, discussing a littleknown copyright law that prevents art from being photographed and used in other mediums and federal legislation passed in 1990 that prevents owners from altering any piece. She also pointed out those commissioning an original piece should be mindful of Max Factor, whose work by Frank Stella was later duplicated exactly by the artist a provision not spelled out in their contract. Mrs. Pfeiffer also touched upon some of the legal concerns facing collectors. Even art purchased in good faith can later be determined not to be painted by Mary Cassatt or Canaletto with no compensation for the buyer. She also said pieces seized illegally have to be returned, using as an example Nazi pilfering of private art collections during World War II. Mrs. Pfeiffer, who specializes in South American art and is an avid collector, said would-be collectors should consider the six determinants of value: quality, condition, rarity, fashion, freshness and provenance. While Old Masters can be, and often are, restored or relined without affecting value, contemporary pieces should be left untouched; and although its acceptable to replace hardware or restore French furniture, American furniture is considered more valuable if it shows wear. Freshness is also super important, she noted. People love to see pieces that havent seen the light of day in a long time; maybe theyve been in a private collection the past 40 years. Just like fashion, the popularity of art and artists also goes in and out of favor. Big now is Andy Warhol, whose Liz 1963, which sold for $3.6 million in 2001 and fetched $23.6 million just six years later. Right now, everyone wants Warhol, said Mrs. Pfeiffer. And de Kooning went through a major movement a few years ago. There really is no such thing as an art market. Each sector performs different at different rates, she continued. Following the big Wall Street decline in 2008, some sectors experienced a deeper decline than others. Latin American art didnt. We had record sales that year. No matter a collectors stage in the process whether a newcomer or pro Ms. Hill reiterated the age-old art adage: Buy what you love. Even if your kids dont.

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 FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 NEWS A11 Frank Provenzano first laid eyes on the love of his life when he saw her at a birthday party. He swears to this day that he knew, even then, that she was the one. As he tells the story, he laughs and looks over at his Phyllis in the living room of their apartment at Vi at Bentley Village. She was 16 and had a Gypsy costume on at the party. She immediately caught my eye, he says. I was a palm reader, and his hands were very calloused, so I told him he would be nothing more than a ditch digger, she says. Little did she know that those hands would one day wear a wedding ring for 70 years. On a cold December day in Cincinnati, 16 months after they met, Frank and Phyllis became Mr. and Mrs. Provenzano. Right after that, they boarded a train for Newark, Ohio. Frank had received a promotion from the railroad company he worked for and needed to report for his new position the following day. Living off $27 a week, the couple settled happily into married life. They welcomed a daughter and then, like all Americans during that era, their life changed on Dec. 7, 1941, with the attack on Pearl Harbor. When Frank shipped off to the war six months later, Phyllis was expecting their second child. I wrote Frank a letter every day that he was gone, she says. I knew this would help him get through his time away from home, and it made me feel close to him even though he was thousands of miles away. He didnt see his second born until she was 1 years old, so most of the letters were about his two daughters. The collection of letters, poems and cards between them cover 70 years of their life. Dear Frank, It was a rainy winter evening When we took that special vow. I loved you so that evening, And I love you much more now. A dark and rainy evening, We set out in the rain. We didnt take a Honeymoon, Instead we took the train, And just kept right on moving until we landed here. And home is where my heart is, And its right here with you dear. Love, PhyllisFrank made it through the war safely and returned home to regain his position and achieve a successful career with a railroad company. I started off as a messenger boy, worked hard, got my degree, gained experience and retired as a vice president, he says. Holding his wifes hand, he adds, Phyllis supported me and stood by my side throughout my entire career. I owe my success to her. Eleven cities, World War II, three children (another daughter), seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren later, the Provenzanos live a happy, active life. We contribute our longevity to being very active, lots of laughter and plenty of l ove, Phyllis says. Weve traveled around the world and to almost every state in the union, so weve seen a lot. But what matters most is our family, faith and love for one another. The Provenzanos just returned from their 11th cruise to the southern Caribbean, a celebration of their 70th wedding anniversary. When asked what makes for a happy marriage, neither hesitates to disclose what contributed to 70 years of wedded bliss: The answer is simple, says Frank. Every day is interesting and never boring. Always look forward to your next adventure, and conquer it as a couple. 70 years later, couple says marriage is an adventure they conquer together BY MARJORIE JOHNSONSpecial to Florida Weekly Always look forward to your next adventure, and conquer it as a couple.

D www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 The Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida, on track to open mid-March, will be the only 24/7 animal emergency hospital serving Collier County and the only specialty/referral hospital of its kind in Southwest Florida. The Collier County Commission has approved the specialty veterinary hospital as part of a job creation project spearheaded by the Economic Development Council of Collier County. Acting as an extension of and partnering with the primary care veterinarian, The Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida will deliver state-of-the-art, compassionate care at 10130 Market St. in Naples, just off Interstate 75 at exit 101. In its first three years, the 7,350square-foot center will employ at least 28 people with an average wage of $55,000. Board-certified specialists in the following fields will see appointments by referral from the patients primary care veterinarian only: Neurology/neurosurgery Orthopedic surgery General surgery Internal medicine Critical care Physical rehabilitation Oncology Much like their counterparts that care for humans, the hospital will never close, and its specialists will be on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week for consultations. A board-certified radiologist will be available on a consultation basis. This facility will fulfill a critical need for advanced pet health care in the region, says founding member Dr. Michelle Carnes. A partnership between the primary care veterinarian and the specialist can provide top-notch care for pets while maximizing quality of life through periods of illness, she adds. The following services will be provided at night and on the weekends/holidays: Walk-in emergency services In-patient/critical case management and hospitalization Advanced life support including mechanical ventilation Emergency surgery The hospital will have: Specialty care wards, including a full-service ICU Three surgical suites A rehabilitation center A high-field MRI A helical CT Digital radiography Ultrasound and endoscopic procedures An in-house laboratory The only other facility that has such advanced scan equipment is at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Collier County Commission Chairman Fred Coyle says. Having a hospital of this caliber in Naples will be a draw for residents here and throughout the state as well as other businesses related to veterinary care. In addition to Dr. Carnes, who has been in private practice in Fort Lauderdale and is board-certified in veterinary neurology/neurosurgery, other founding members include Dr. Ashley Ayoob, who became board-certified in critical care/ emergency medicine and internal medicine at the Animal Medical Center in New York City; Dr. Marc Havig, a boardcertified veterinary surgeon who grew up in Naples and is a graduate of Naples High School; and Eric Carnes, a Florida native who will serve as hospital administrator. Our goal is to offer pet owners the same level of medical care for their pets as they receive themselves, says Dr. Havig.About the EDCThrough a combination of local and state incentives, the EDC offers programs that appeal to businesses and will create highwage jobs in Collier County. Established in 2003, the Collier County Economic Stimulus Program supports both the expansion of existing industry and the recruitment of new industry to Collier County.

A Doctors Confession to the City of Naples And why, despite all, I still do what I doDear Friend, Confessions are tough, really tough. But I want my confession to set the record straight. Before I talk about my confession, though, let me say a few other things rst. Let me start by explaining the photo in this letter. You know, when I meet people in town they usually say, Oh, yeah, I know you, Ive seen your ad with that picture of you and the cute little boys. Well that is me with my family. Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. Let me tell you my story. Back then I was a teenager with learning disabilities, serious health problems and horrible back pains. In my case it came on gradually throughout my life. You see I had a serious injury at birth and grew up taking lots of drugs and seeing lots of doctors that didnt seem to help me. en in high school I had a serious sports injury that almost took my life. But, theres more My mothers friend had tried for over a year to get my mom to take me to her doctor. Finally, after my injury my mom decided we had no other options (other than more drugs). is new doctor did an exam, took some lms, and then adjusted my spine. e adjustment didnt hurt, it actually felt great. To me, that day was truly a miracle in my life. My learning disabilities, health problems, and pains decreased immediately! Oh, did I mention that this doctor was a chiropractor? It worked so well for me, and I was so impressed with the other awesome results I saw in her oce, that I eventually went to chiropractic school myself. Now as for my family and my wife Erin, I was able to check their delicate little bodies and spines immediately. I feel condent knowing they started out this life with the best potential for health and could start out life so dierent than I had to begin mine. ank God that I know some things that my parents didnt. Getting to check children from the start has amazing long lasting eects. at is what I call prevention. at seems like a small thing, but it makes a huge dierence to them. Its strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their health problems. ey come to me with headaches, migraines, chronic pain, neck pain, shoulder/arm pain, injuries from car accidents, backaches, ear infections, asthma, allergies, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few. Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I cant really take the credit. My confession is that Ive never healed anyone of anything. What I do is give specic scientic spinal adjustments, exercises and other rehab to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by being able to function properly. We get tremendous results. Its as simple as that! Being a chiropractor can be tough, because theres a host of unqualied experts out there. ey tell people a lot of things that are just plain ridiculous, misleading and false about my profession. In May of 2009 Consumer Reports reported that Chiropractic was the #1 treatment for back pain. is was a poll of 14,000 people! Regardless of your beliefs or skepticism the results and research keeps speaking that chiropractic is tough to beat if you want RESULTS and SATISFACTION. Also conventional drugs and back surgery were rated very low in satisfaction. Consumer Reports even suggested you use caution with these treatments (remember Consumer Reports is non-biased to protect you, the consumer). Are you listening?Look, it shouldnt cost you an arm and a leg to correct your health. So what I will do is do is give you a chance to see if we are right for you. If you are suering with pain or just want to sit and talk with me about your health issues you can schedule a consultation to discuss it with me at NO CHARGE. en I am oering an extensive new patient exam including, postural, neurological and orthopedic examinations and xrays for $67! is is usually $236....so please take advantage of this oer it will expire February 28th. and I dont want you to miss out. Please, I hope that theres no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee. Youll get great care at a great fee. My qualications Im a Summa cum Laude graduate of Life University and Cum Laude graduate of Auburn University. I just have that low exam fee to determine IF I can help you. My assistants are Laura and Jennifer and they are really awesome! Our oce is both friendly and warm and we try our best to make you feel at home. Our oce is called e patient or any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, to cancel payment or to be reimbursed for payment for any other service, examination or treatment which has been performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to advertisement of the free service, examination or treatment.

Executive Director Ted Soliday and Director of Airport Development Erv Dehn made the trip with consultant Ted Baldwin, senior vice president of Harris Miller Miller & Hanson, a Massachusetts firm that specializes in noise control, airport and airspace planning, and environmental consulting. They met with FAA staff to request advice in developing and implementing departure and arrival procedures that would help keep aircraft over preferred flight corridors at the highest feasible altitudes. For takeoffs, the focus is on standard instrument departure procedures that minimize flights over the most noisesensitive areas. For landings, constant descent angles are being considered, rather than the current stair-step approach that brings aircraft in lower and requires higher power settings and frequent power changes. Throttle changes make you notice sound, Mr. Baldwin says. Decibels dont tell the whole story. During our Atlanta meetings, we were pleased to learn that the FAAs national priorities and our goals overlap, and that proven technologies are available for application at Naples, Mr. Soliday says. This process will take considerable time, but we are now better prepared to move forward efficiently and effectively. Naples Municipal Airport is a certificated air carrier airport run with revenue generated from its operations. It is home to flight schools, air charter, aviation and nonaviation businesses as well as fire/rescue services, mosquito control, car rental agencies and the Collier County Sheriffs Aviation Unit. During the 2009-2010 fiscal year, the airport accommodated 86,000 takeoffs and landings. The Florida Department of Transportation values the airports annual economic impact at more than $120 million.

Miles of Quarters, a new campaign for the Community Blood Center, is the first collaborative fundraising effort by the NCH Volunteer Auxiliaries (Downtown Naples Hospital, North Naples Hospital and the Marco Island Healthcare Center) and honorary campaign chairman Miami Dolphin quarterback Earl Morrall. The campaign rolls out this week, when NCH auxiliary members distribute nearly 10,000 empty Miles of Quarters prescription vials (compliments of KMart Pharmacy on Golden Gate Parkway) to individuals, service groups, organizations and businesses. Recipients are asked to fill the vials with paper currency or with $10 in quarters and deposit them into Miles of Quarters receptacles that have been placed in the lobbies at Downtown Naples Hospital, 350 Seventh St. N.; North Naples Hospital, 11190 Health Park Blvd.; or the Marco Island Healthcare Center, 40 Heathwood Drive. Additional vials can be obtained in the volunteer offices at each location between now and April 30.Cycle of LifeA second aspect of the Miles of Quarters campaign is the Cycle for Life Charity Fun Ride set for Sunday, March 13, at North Collier Regional Park. Beginning at 7:30 a.m., bicyclists will set out on 10-, 30and 62-mile courses designed for ages 14 and up. Registration in advance is $20 for adults and $45 for families; day-of registration is $25 and $50. The first 250 riders will receive a sport bag filled with goodies. Riders will enjoy lunch provided by Costco and Planet Smoothie. The can also elect to raise additional funds and earn prizes based upon goals reached. Registration forms and additional details are at www.givebloodcbc.org.What its all forAll proceeds will help purchase new equipment to streamline the blood donation process and increase Community Blood Centers blood collections, thereby enabling CBC to help an additional 4,000 local patients such as critically ill newborns, cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, patients requiring cardiac surgery, accident victims and many others. Auxiliary members estimate that one mile is approximately 63,360 quarters in a line, amounting to $15,840. Every 25 minutes, someone in Collier County uses a blood or blood product, says NCH volunteer spokesperson Pat Campagne. Our goal is to raise as many miles of quarters as possible, so that more lives can be saved. Contributions large or small can also be made by sending a check made payable to NCH Volunteer Auxiliary to: NCH Volunteer Auxiliary, P.O. Box 413029 Naples, FL 34101. Please mark MOQ/CFL in the memo line. For more information, visit www. givebloodcbc.org or call Laura Rosen at 436-5303. Quarters will add up to new equipment for blood center

The Conservancy of Southwest Florida released its 2011 Estuaries Report Card at a press conference held on Feb. 3. Of the 10 estuaries studied, from Venice in the north to Everglades City in the south, not one fully met state water quality standards. The report card assesses estuary conditions and makes recommendations of 10 steps to help save Southwest Floridas waters. Issued every five years, it is important to policymakers, who can use the data to make decisions concerning Southwest Florida waterways, as well as for citizens, who can make a difference in their own backyards, said Jennifer Hecker, director of natural resources for the Conservancy. The findings also reinforce the need to establish quantifiable numeric nutrient standards for our waterways the first step toward identifying and addressing the nutrient pollution fouling our waters, Ms. Hecker said. Conservancy staff utilized research and scientific data to analyze the following watersheds: Coastal Venice, Lemon Bay, Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound, Caloosahatchee River, Estero Bay, Wiggins Pass/Cocohatchee, Naples Bay, Rookery Bay and Ten Thousand Islands. Each of the 10 watersheds was assigned two grades, one based on wildlife habitat and one on water quality. Of the 20 scores, there were two As and nine Ds. When it comes to water quality, Florida has a lot of homework to do, Andrew McElwaine, Conservancy president and CEO, said. These grades should be unacceptable to any citizen. The good news, he added, is that the report outlines 10 action items for policy makers and citizens to implement that will improve water quality in our estuaries. We must each do our part. Clean and abundant water is our most precious resource. The BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill raised global awareness of the significance of estuaries, where nearly 75 percent of the commercially and recreationally important species of fish and shellfish spend part of their lives. From tourism, to job creation and recreation, water is vital to the Florida economy, particularly in Southwest Florida. Yet 97 percent of bays and estuaries and 42 percent of streams in Florida are in poor shape, identified as potentially not safe for swimming and/or fishing, Mr. McElwaine said. In November 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency established final standards that set numeric limits on the amount of nutrient pollution allowed in Floridas inland waters to reduce water pollution that causes harmful algae blooms the thick, green muck that fouls clear water and produces toxins harmful to humans, animals and ecosystems. The blooms are caused by nitrogen and phosphorus, called nutrients, contained in wastewater, urban storm water runoff and excess fertilizer that flow into waterways. The 2011 Estuaries Report Card five-page executive summary and the full 251-page report including the 10 steps to save Southwest Floridas waters can be viewed at www.conservancy.org.Estuaries Report Card indicates a lot of homework to do UNITED ARTS COUNCIL/ROOKERY BAY PHOTOGRAPHY WINNERS COURTESY PHOTOSThe top prize winners from 137 entries in the annual United Arts Council/Rookery Bay photography exhibition were announced at t he opening reception on Feb. 3.

From George Washington on, every U.S. president has endured old-fashioned political muckraking, party mud-slinging and slogging through economic tough times.

Mr. Butcher and his wife, Niki, will welcome visitors to Big Cypress Gallery to see their work and to brave the Big Cypress Swamp (accompanied by guides) SaturdayMonday, Feb. 19-21. Saturday and Sunday hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Monday hours are 9 a.m. to noon. Not many people brave the mysterious and secretive environment off U.S. 41 to discover the beauty and peace found in more the than 1 million acres that are the Everglades. Its a diverse wilderness of subtropical flora and fauna found nowhere else in our country. The Butchers will greet visitors in their gallery, where Mr. Butcher will autograph his books and Mrs. Butcher will demonstrate her technique of hand-painting photographs. After the 90-minute swamp walk, sit around the campfire to warm your feet and enjoy some hot cocoa or coffee. Cost is $50 per person; $25 for ages 17 and younger.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA38 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 TO YOUR HEALTH As uncertain as the future of U.S. health care might be, two things are irrefutable: First, we cannot sustain a national health-care system where costs grow faster than the economy. And second, health-care organizations that fail to adapt quickly to change will find themselves on the outside, looking in. These were major themes at a national Governance Institute meeting in Naples last week. Among those attending were NCH board members Kay Gow, Tom Gazdic and Joe Perkovich, and leadership team members Kevin Cooper, Jim Martin and me. A few of the topics were admittedly foreboding: The Tsunami After the Earthquake: Riding the Tidal Wave of Reform to an Optimistic Future in Healthcare Reform; This Will Hurt: A Healthcare Perspective From Moodys; The New Business Model in Healthcare: Next Steps; and Telling It Like It Is: Positive Actions for Negative Times. Yet we emerged from the meeting more confident than ever that, while we still have much to accomplish at NCH and will clearly undergo continued change, were doing the right things to respond to the healthcare challenges that confront us and to meet the needs of the people of Southwest Florida. Here are some of the more important things many of which echo our work at NCH that we learned: Dean Klasko of the University of South Florida said this is the first year that no USF medical school graduates planned to go into traditional private practice. Not one. Rather, all have chosen an employment or a clinical partnership model. Monetary rewards for improvements in quality for physicians or hospitals will come from funds taken from poor performers. Payments will be redirected, because there will be no increase in total government outlays for health care. To thrive in a globally competitive environment, the U.S. must have transformation, not just reform. This change will require collaboration among patients, physicians, hospitals Examining the new realities in health care allenWEISS allen.weiss@nchmd.org HEALTHY LIVINGTake a dose of Renaissance Academy nutrition seriesThe Renaissance Academy of FGCU presents Nutrition for a New Age, a series of programs continuing from 1:30-3 p.m. Thursdays at the FGCU Naples Center.

A lot of these medical issues could be asymptomatic, meaning you dont know there is anything wrong. It is best to have a complete physical.So why is 50 the magic number? Mostly it has to do with statistics, says Dr. Luis Pozniak, one of Dr. Wangs colleagues at the Naples practice. Population studies tend to go by decades the 40s, 50s and 60s. Based on those studies, age 50 is the line of demarcation when your risk of health problems and disease increases exponentially. Patients should get their blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels checked every year by age 50, Dr. Wang says. The goal of every physician is preventive medicine, he adds. As people age, their cholesterol starts to creep up. Their blood pressure and blood sugar start creeping up, too. If we catch this early enough, we can often prevent it from getting worse. Fifty is also the recommended age for many screening exams for both men and women. ColonoscopyOne important test and probably the least favorite of patients is the colonoscopy. About 90 percent of colorectal cancers occur in people 50 and older, and colorectal cancer is the second most common deadly cancer for men and women in our country, Dr. Pozniak says. Drs. Pozniak and Wang say they completely understand why patients hesitate to get the exam. Its an invasive procedure that involves inserting a tube in the rectum to look for polyps that can be cancerous or lead to colon cancer. Women tend to deal better because most have been getting pap smears for years and are more used to an Nifty FiftyCelebrate the milestone birthday with a comprehensive physical a t h e e f s u o g l u p s e b e o u n g a g ic i th ui s g s st T h su su up t h w ve w re fo i n m C t b i t

Non-collaborative, standalone providers will perish, while mature, integrated systems and multi-specialty, technologically sophisticated groups will flourish. Technology will be a game-changer. Open communication succeeds; selective disclosure fails. In order for us to thrive, fixed costs (buildings and equipment, for example) and variable costs (supplies) must decline. Resource management must be everyones responsibility. Size and good governance matter. Dynamic boards will import fresh ideas from other industries and countries to enhance U.S. health care. Larger organizations can negotiate better contracts, be more market relevant, more efficient/effective and command a bigger, positive voice in their communities.

Recent studies compiled at Harvard Medical School and noted in the schools December 2010 newsletter suggest that yoga has an upbeat effect on a variety of heart issues. Among those effects are that yoga can: reduces high blood pressure, ease palpitations, enhance cardiac rehabilitation and lower cardiovascular risk factors such as cholesterol levels, blood sugar and stress hormones. These finding are amazing to many in the West who have come to rely solely upon pills and traditional medical remedies. Many baby boomers are suspicious, still connecting yoga to the hippie-dippy days of the Beatles and bra burning. But yogas benefits are no surprise to practitioners East and West (and in Naples) who have discovered better heath and peace of mind through yogas various forms. More and more, the scientific community is embracing Eastern, nonreligious practices for health. Harvard Medical School has been a leader in this field of study, going back more than 35 years to the breakthrough book titled The Relaxation Response by Dr. Herbert Benson, a heart surgeon. Dr. Benson took a look at Indian monks and their amazing abilities to control physical functions. Over the years, more and more studies have focused on everyday people who use forms of breathing, meditation, relaxation and mindfulness for health benefits. Now they even look inside the brain and see changes relating to physical health taking place as a direct result of these practices. But all the researchers can do is recommend yoga. If you want to experience yogas health benefits, what do you do? I think the Harvard newsletter advice is perfect: Attending a general yoga class populated by fit 30-somethings who expect a good workout can be a disheartening introduction. If you are a few gray hairs beyond 30, look for a gentle yoga class that includes the full package poses, breathing and meditation. I would add the importance of finding a teacher who embraces the breathing and meditation (or mindfulness) practice. For practitioners of any age, the payoffs of yoga can truly be life-saving Its never too late to experience benefits of yogainvasive screening, Dr. Wang says. Many patients also hesitate because of the preparation, he adds. The day before the exam, you drink a laxative that can cause diarrhea and bloating, and you cannot eat. Missing work is another factor that puts people off. With preparation and the actual exam, which requires anesthesia, a person could be absent for two days of their job. That can be a particularly big concern in light of the current economy, he says, adding that scheduling a colonoscopy on a Monday could mean missing only one day of work. There is such a thing as a CT colonography, or virtual colonoscopy, in which the colon is scanned with a CT machine. Its not invasive and does not require anesthesia, but patients have to do the same preparation and the view of the colon is not as complete. Most physicians tend to favor the traditional colonoscopy exam, which enables them to take care of the polyps right away during the procedure, Dr. Pozniak says.Prostate screeningMen should also receive a prostate cancer screening by their 50th birthdays, although it is one of the more controversial screening exams, he says. During the screening, the physician is looking for a prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, that can indicate cancer. You could get a normal reading with cancer and an abnormal reading without, he says. What physicians are really looking for is how the PSA changes during the years. We follow the trend of the screenings. If your PSA is a 1 the first exam, and a 1.2 the second time, then you are probably OK. If it goes from a 1 to a 3, then you should follow up with an urologist, he says.Bone density testWomen should also receive a bone density test at age 50. The first exam acts as a baseline to find out how much density the woman is losing each year, Dr. Pozniak says. Other than the bone density test, women should continue with their pap smears, which start at age 18 or when the woman is sexually active, and mammograms, which begin at age 40 unless there is a family history. A comprehensive physical can seem intimidating to those who are afraid they will hear bad news, Dr. Wang says. However, most people are diagnosed with entirely manageable health issues, he says. What of the more serious health issues? By nature, we tend to ignore things that dont give us problems. Ten or 14 years later, it can take a bite out of your body and wont give it back, Dr. Pozniak says. A physicians great satisfaction, he adds, is to make sure you dont live one day less because something could have been prevented. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA40 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 FIFTYFrom page A38WANG POZNIAK

A dental examination is part of that well-pet visit, and follow-up preventive care may require a dental cleaning under anesthesia. A healthy mouth not only keeps your pet free of pain imagine eating with rotting teeth and infected gums but also spares your pets internal organs from struggling to combat the shower of bacteria from an infected mouth. The gift of fitness. By now weve all read the news that pets have their own obesity crisis. The reasons are similar to ours too much food and not enough exercise. But pets cant open the refrigerator on their own or hit the drive-through: They need our help to get fat. Cut back on the treats, and get your pet moving. You can use your dogs enthusiasm for a daily walk to help get yourself in shape, too, which is the message of Fitness Unleashed: A Dog and Owners Guide to Losing Weight and Gaining Health Together (Three Rivers Press), Dr. Beckers book with human physician Dr. Robert Kushner. The gift of time. Many pets spend most of their lives alone, while our busy lives keep us from home. While much of this alone time is unavoidable someone has to work for food and shelter, right? some simple changes will give you more time with your pet. Skip some of your TV or computer time, and play fetch with your dog or get out the laser pointer for your cat. Look for opportunities to include your dog on family outings. The gift of training. A well-trained pet has a better, closer relationship with his owner because they speak a common language and spend more time together. If your pet has behavior problems from house-training to aggression, from leash-pulling to furnituredestruction ask your veterinarian for a referral to a local trainer or behaviorist. The gift of safety. Be sure your home offers a safe, secure environment for your pet. Inside the house, garage and basement, keep cleaning supplies and other troublesome household chemicals out of reach, and clean up spills promptly. Cats are drawn to warm spots, so make sure to keep the door on your clothes dryer shut. Choose plants inside and out that arent toxic. Finally, because your pet can become lost even with the most careful prevention, be sure your pet has a collar with current ID, and a microchip as a backup. Got all the basics covered? Good for you! You can now celebrate by going out and buying your pet something special, just because. Study after study shows that people are not only crazy about pets, but they also love to spend money on them even when money is tight. Were certainly not arguing against buying that perfect dog collar or cat toy, but we do want you to know that you dont have to buy a lot of things for your pets to care for them well. In fact, some of the best gifts you can give your pet dont cost any money at all and require only your attention.

This is the story of the aging professor Humbert Humbert and his relationship with the 12-year-old nymphet Nabokov coined this word Dolores Haze. The first four publishers turned down the work, describing it as lewd. Graham Greene, Christian writer, referred to it as one of the best novels of its time. The London Times reviewer called it the filthiest book he ever read. Nabokov himself commented that Lolita was his most abstract, pure and carefully contrived story, a beautiful puzzle. The text allusions are many, including some to Poe, Lewis Carroll, and the French decadent writers. He also noted that no one names their daughter Lolita anymore. Only young female poodles continue to bear the name. In an afterword, Nabokov claims that his initial shiver of inspiration came from the sketch an ape made after repeated coaxing by a scientific investigator. This ape chose to draw the bars of the cage that imprisoned him. Needing no coaxing, Nabokov introduced the Russian word poshlost into the English language, defining this word as appropriate appellation of corny trash, vulgar cliche, Philistine imitation of imitation, bogus profundity, and crude, moronic, and dishonest pseudo-literature. A pirates dream. Thus we play the conceptual game: What do any words have in common? In the mire of all the common meaning webs, it must be said that the ancient Theyre telling you lies.... Contagious science: Its the emperors new clothes and the human bias.... Whisper in the night.... Gods and Monsters, PsycheLast week the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London supported Vladimir Nabokovs 1945 hypothesis. Nabokov had proposed that a group of species of butterflies, the Polyommatus blues, came to the New World from Asia in a series of migratory waves. The butte rflies, he thought, travelled from Siberia to Alaska and then all the way down to South America. Though not embraced during his lifetime, Nabokovs ideas have now gained lepidopterological acceptance. Another original Nabokov proposal was to determine b utterfly species classification based upon genital structure. There is also current corroboration of this idea, of the merit of this strategy as the best way of identifying species similarity.But Vladimir Nabokov is not usually remembered for his butterfly theories. He is more often thought of as a writer. His first poem, written at age 15, was inspired by his seeing a raindrop make a leaf flutter.But it is his novel Lolita, published MUSINGS Bete noire Rx is the FloridaWeekly muse who hopes to inspire profound mutiny in all those who care to read.

Mindful, seeing this and that, like butterflies landing softly to taste with their feet before moving on, psyche is infinite points of view, infinitely spacious, unbound by likes and dislikes, unfettered by theories or concepts. Psyche is passing through. A light, alighting, noting in a moment, moving on. Pirates are praying that psyche does not lose perspective for a pot of gruel. May the Essau in all of us be wary. Greek word f or butte rfly was psyche. Psyche is not usually remembered in its guise as butterfly designation, except when referring to leptosia nina or psyche butterfly This species lives in Southeast Asia and on the Indian sub-continent. Also called the wandering snowflake, its white upper forewing is marked with a pear-shaped black spot. The psyche butterfly barely leaves the ground. Its flight is weak and erratic. Its moving wings cause its little body to bob up and down. Also notable is the Psychidae, or bagworm moths. These creatures build small cases out of silk and environmental materials in which they hide, camouflaged. The females often do not ever leave the case. The males extend their abdomen into the females case to breed. The females may lay eggs, or the offspring might simply emerge from her dying body. The reproduction of some of the females is parthenogenetic: They do not need male fertilization. They make a leap of faith. In her book Reading Lolita in Tehran, Azar Nafisi, as she discusses educating young Iranian women, writes about another kind of leap: the imposition of the dreams of the powerful onto the realities of others, making those realities into figments of imagination: the crime of solipsizing another persons life. We leap to question: what is psyche? Is it Cupids lover, who, in a moment of faithlessness peeked at him in the night, losing him in the midst of skepticism, the tainted views of others?

MONEY & INVESTINGLove and money in the 21st centuryAs Valentines Day approaches, its a good time to focus on the elephant in the room for seriously dating couples: money, the lack thereof or the disparity therein. Once a hippo-sized issue in pre-recession days, it has grown to be elephant-sized. Most agree that the Great Recession impacted every societal element, including corporate and household spending plans and perspectives about money. Simply put, corporations are hoarding. They are accumulating huge cash coffers. Households are slenderizing their budgets and focusing on ways to pay down debt. As for dating relationships, for candiates young and old, a sense of diminished wealth has impacted many an existing and prospective dating relationship. April Masini, best-selling author of Think and Date Like A Man and Southwest Floridas very own relationship expert, makes her own observations. In the former economic environment, a womans weight (as in excess) was the most often quoted concern of a man. Now, ladies, this reality does not mean that we have to like or agree with the idea of our weight being the primary focus of the average man. It does not legitimize its superficiality but, as Ms. Masini says, While it may not be politically correct to say out loud or publicly men, very simply, are visual by nature and generally prefer fit or lean to not. Largely derived from the comments/ questions she receives from men and women who write to her at www.AskApril. com, Ms. Masinis sense is that dating criteria and focus have shifted over the past couple of years. And what is the most important factoid about a woman who holds a mans focus today? What are men consistently wondering and trying to size up about prospective dates these days? What has become a key issue to be resolved before couples decide to march down the aisle? Debt. Specifically, the lack of it, Ms. Masini says. If you can honestly whisper phrases such as: I have no debt; I live within my budget; I have a good job; I have a savings account; I dont carry a balance on my credit cards; My home mortgage is above water, you will discover they have aphrodisiac qualities. Those types of words will play like music to a mans ears. Not that this issue is one-sided, as in man-sided. Women who are financially responsible and savvy savers and/or investors with savings accounts, careers, inheritances or divorce settlements want to make sure their potential mate is not a potential liability (or someone who is looking for a Sugar Momma). Like their male counterparts, todays single woman doesnt want a man with a debt burden or irresponsible spending habits. But not all debt is created equal. Credit card debt amassed by a spendthrift has a lot less appeal or chance of acceptance by a man than student loan debt incurred for college and grad school. And the latter, hopefully, is a foundation or platform for the loans to be repaid. From my perspective, for those seeking an overcomer, a man or woman fulfilling responsibilities and repaying indebtedness can be a negative turned into a positive not a whisper, but a strong statement of character. Real character is an admission that you are in a hole and that you have to dig your way out. And many a person would like someone such as that in his or her corner. So what advice can be given to any dating couple, regardless of age? Ms. Masini offers a lot of advice, but possibly the most salient and certainly the easiest to remember is to deal honestly with the other person and, to a certain extent, with yourself, as your denial is not an effective, long-term life strategy. Along that line of thinking, a relevant question is: When and how do you disclose or seek disclosure from the other person? Its not clear. But, as Ms. Masini queries, when is it better to know of a money issue that will derail a relationship: at the onset of the relationship, or after many months when hearts, minds, bodies and spirits are already solidified into one embrace? From this columnists perspective, it is extremely important to know to what end you are dating from the very start. If the desired end game is marriage, then the people in the relationship need to be upfront about the critical issues: children, health, location, faith and, certainly, money. If the relationship is known and agreed to be casual, the aforementioned issues are really inconsequential. (Hopefully, mature adults know and communicate their desired end game and do not intentionally/ selfishly mislead the other person.)While it is so very distasteful for a woman to economically size a date, it is also equally offensive for a gentleman to prod or poke to elicit a womans complete balance sheet. Yet, with some delicacy, the couple might want to make some form of disclosure early on in a relationship. Parents of younger and unmarried adult children might consider an ongoing dialogue about these issues. Entirely different from a lecture, dictates or a rule set, a dialogue raises consciousness and permits adult children to explore the issues and take responsibility for their decisions. Couples will want to explore these issues honestly, as their ramifications are great.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 THE MOTLEY FOOL We all allocate our assets, between categories such as stocks, bonds and cash. The theory is that diversification will protect us: When one segment falls, another may rise. By diversifying, you minimize your downside risk while achieving necessary growth. As each category grows at a different rate, your allocation mix will shift. Thus, its smart to periodically rebalance your investments to restore your desired proportions. How much should you park in each category? Well, conventional wisdom long held that you should subtract your age from 100 and devote that portion to stocks. So a 50-year-old would have 50 percent of her portfolio in stocks and a 70-year-old only 30 percent. As people started living longer, the number to subtract from became 110. Some studies suggest that a 60-40 stock-bond mix is a good ratio in retirement. But theres no formula thats right for everyone. Assess your own situation carefully to determine your best allocation mix one that will allow you to sleep well at Allocating Your Assets 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. ABCs of CEOs and COOs Q What do a companys CEO and COO actually do? E.M., Sioux City, IowaA It varies somewhat from company to company, but in a nutshell, the chief executive officer (CEO) of a corporation with a board of directors is responsible for seeing that the strategy of the board is carried out. The president and chief operating officer (COO), who are often the same person at many companies, are responsible for executing the strategy. A CEO typically focuses on overall strategy, communicating with the media, employees, shareholders and customers. Shell spend a lot of time networking or negotiating with other companies executives, meeting with financial partners, and trying to get the public and investors interested in the company and confident about its future.Meanwhile, the COO/president manages the day-to-day operations. Hell deal with consultants, customers, and employees in sales, marketing, finance and more. He and the CEO will work with the CFO (chief financial officer) to make sure the firm is financially healthy.Q How can I track my portfolio online, and should I? K.P., Hickory, N.C.A Yes, you should. Doing so can help you spot big gains or trouble quickly. Many online services, such as AOL or Yahoo! Finance, offer portfolio tracking. At such sites, you can enter the various stocks and funds you own, the prices at which you bought them, and the purchase dates and commission costs as well. From then on, you can check in any time to see the latest value of your individual holdings, as well as your overall portfolio. Your brokerages website should also show your holdings. You can even track stocks on your watch list by adding them to a fictional online portfolio. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us.

Back in 1981, my wife convinced me that we should invest in an aggressive mutual fund that her parents had made a lot of money in over many years. It had provided them with both income and growth. We invested $6,200 and it started growing. I considered selling to realize the profit, but decided to just let it ride. Over the next 18 years, we got $12,500 out of it, and the investment was still worth around $9,000, well above our initial investment. This shows that you dont have to get into a great investment at the beginning. K.T., Worthington, OhioThe Fool Responds: Thats very true. With both stocks and funds, many solid performers can reward investors over many decades. Some companies may run into trouble, though, such as when new competitors or technologies emerge. And funds may lose talented managers over time, or those managers may lose their touch. Its important to keep an eye on your investments to make sure they still seem promising. You want your money invested in the best ideas you can find. The Motley Fool TakePrepared foods have been a great boon to Whole Foods Market (Nasdaq: WFMI).

They are also committed to seeking patents, a calculated risk. The total legal fees of acquiring a patent normally run upwards of $10,000, says Naples patent attorney Edward Livingston. Meanwhile, the idea usually remains patent pending, a kind of probationary period during which the idea is protected for at least two or three years. The United States Patent & Trademark Office granted 244,341 patents in 2010, which includes inventions from all over the world. Thats the most ever 52,414 more than last year. Many local inventors have sought Mr. Livingstons services. It decreased during the recession and now its picked up again, he says. There is a lot of innovation now... Its the future of America, really. What separates us from the rest of the world is our great inventions. Monique Wright Beverage IceNaples resident Monique Wright has presented her patent attorney, Mr. Livingston, with probably a few dozen ideas over the years. A former waitress and kindergarten teacher, Ms. Wright bubbles with ideas and excitement about bringing her products to market. Many times in the course of her daily life, shell think, Theres gotta be a better way to do this, she says. One of her ideas, Beverage Ice, was granted a full-fledged patent in the late 1990s. Beverage Ice chills individually packaged frozen beer, iced tea, lemonade, soda pop and other beverages without watering them down. She came up with the idea a method and device for cooling and enhancing the flavor of beverages years ago when she was cleaning up beer that had splattered the inside of her freezer. About 10 years ago, my ex-husband was putting his beers in the freezer, she says. You forget about it and what happens is they explode. I was saying, If I have to clean up this beer ice one more time All of a sudden my brain went, Beer ice? What is that? Although she hasnt produced the product or sold it on a large scale, her patented intellectual property is ready for the benefit of companies such as Miller High Life or the Coca-Cola Bottling Company. Meanwhile, her brain keeps working. Its always been that way. She recalls back to when she taught kindergarten and one of her students had a cough. When she was told not to give the student a cough drop because of the choking danger, she instantly thought of a cough drop on a stick. But her co-workers balked at the idea. Years later, though, a major cough drop company came out with a sore-throat lollipop. If Id have known back then what I know now, I would have been in (patent attorney Mr. Livingstons) office in 10 seconds, she says. If you come up with an idea, its really worth sitting with an attorney for half an hour and saying, Is this something I should move forward on? A single mom to two teenage daughters, Ms. Wright also runs a home-based business selling MonaVie, a nutritional beverage. Just a few months ago, she started a patent search on a new product (she wont yet say what), something she came up with traveling in her car. She says the idea is so simple you wouldnt believe it hasnt already been thought of. But so far, her attorney hasnt found anything like it in the world. The product is officially patent pending as of Jan. 27, her daughters birthday.Jim Magic Metz Magic FlushA car salesman by profession, Jim Metz enjoys tinkering on evenings and weekends in a garage space that complete with its Green Bay Packers memorabilia and sexy wall calendar could qualify as a man cave. Mr. Metz has built picture frames, elaborate model boats and a new product with a patent pending: Magic Flush, inspired by the laborious process of flushing and cleaning outboard boat engines and cleaning off the boat after a day on the water. Id be down there by the dock (of his Port Charlotte home), flushing engines and everybody would be in the pool having fun, he says. Hed clean one engine at a time with a single hose, then use it later to spray off the boat. So he built a product that allows him to simultaneously flush multiple outboard engines and clean his boat. A good friend of mine said, You should patent that, and I said, Nah, and he said, You should patent that. And I said, You think? Magic Flush is a sturdy brass manifold to which four lengths of hose attach. Hes made about 200 of them so far, selling them on his website for $39.95 (extra for more hoses), complete with a five-year warranty. Mr. Metz saw an ad on television for InventHelp, which is guiding him through the patent process. A friend and colleague at Palm Automall in Punta Gorda helps him put the units together. We get done with work and come home and build 20 or 30 of them, Mr. Metz says, adding his hope is that eventually companies such as Boat U.S. or Bass Pro Shops will order the Magic Flush in quantity. Were ready for it, says Mr. Metz, whose nickname Magic comes from shows he put on as a kid. Wed be working night and day, but were ready. For more information, visit www.outboardmagicflush.com.Mark Anderson Geothermal cooling and heating systemsMark Anderson had a successful career as a residential and commercial builder in Lee County for about three decades. His daughter had pushed him toward a greater and greener social conscience. And because of the recession, he had plenty of time to investigate new ideas. One is a geothermal system for cooling and heating buildings. His feasibility studies have already shown the cooling system is more efficient than the latest direct exchange air conditioners. Mr. Andersons model is also virtually soundless. One system could potentially heat and cool four or five homes and pay for itself in three to five years, he estimates. Flashback to 2008: Four years earlier, Mr. Anderson had bought 9 acres on Sanibel Island, planning to develop a single-family subdivision. The proper permits were all in place. Then the real estate market collapsed. The land remained undeveloped. At the time, his daughter was an environmental studies major at the University of Colorado. She kept challenging me as a contractor-slash-developer to do things that were carbon neutral, says Mr. Anderson, the president of Benchmark general contractors. She said, Dad, trends are going to be different, and you need to get on board. I started thinking about it and I had a piece of property with the permits to deliver it to a market that didnt exist. He decided to use the property to test some ideas, one of which was based on a fact: Water flows in an aquifer under Sanibel Islands porous, sand and shellbased earth. He had always seen it as an obstacle in his profession; you had to drain the water to set a foundation. But it could be a source of energy, too. By installing shallow wells in the underground water supply, he could harness the flow of water between two wells to cool air. Hes also working on a geothermal heating system. The heat exchange model uses black polypropylene panels (also used for solar hot water heaters) buried in the ground water. You could look at what we install in the ground as a radiator, he says. His most comprehensive green project has been Sea Glass of Sanibel, a 12-acre, eco-friendly community that utilizes electric carts and vehicles, urban gardens, fruit groves, wildlife habitats and rainwater harvesting. Mr. Anderson worked with Martin Gold, director of the University of Floridas School of Architecture, to create Sea Glass, where his geothermal systems are being vetted. The barrier islands groundwater is a reliable, stable source. It isnt affected by drought and stays between about 72 and 76 degrees. Off the island, Mr. Anderson has found his invention less viable, although he has tested it with some success. This summer, he plans to replace the air-conditioning system at his office in Fort Myers with a geothermal one. The materials used for the cooling system are relatively simple, proven technologies he developed for his own purposes. His pending patents, for instance, involve a specialized pipe installed in the wells, and the distillation of the water. With the price of oil going up, with the price of gas going up, I think geothermal has arrived at least on barrier islands, he says.Bob Steele Lanai LightsAfter Bob Steele bought a home in Heritage Palms in Fot Myers, he looked for a light switch on his lanai when it got dark. There wasnt one. And that got him thinking. In the course of looking around, I saw all the other lanais were dark, too, he says. So he set out to design lights that make screened-in areas, pool decks and balconies more like another room in the house. It took about three years to develop a suitable commercial product. Now Mr. Steele has the parts made in Akron, Ohio, and assembles them in a small commercial space in Fort Myers. The company is about to outgrow the space. Lanai Lights operate by remote control, have dimmer switches to set the mood and throw light in a 170-degree arc inside the lanai so as not to annoy the neighbors. They come in white and bronze. Mr. Steele figures theres a big market for the product, since screened-in porches are as ubiquitous here as palm trees. The challenge was in keeping the lights simple and efficient enough to produce a lot of them. You can build one of anything, he says. When you try to build 1,000, its a whole different story. As it turns out, his previous life experience gave him an edge in the invention process. In Ohio, he had once been director of operations for an alliance of manufacturers. They made parts for U.S. tanks, for instance, as well as a law enforcement device that safely punctures a speeding criminals tires. He also co-invented a removable speedbump for use at events such as church socials or fairs. Other inventors frequently brought fine ideas to him, though often impractical. A lot of inventors get stuck at that part, he says. They come up with a great idea but dont know how to make it or market it. Lanai Lights has a patent pending. The company had a soft opening last year, then halted production to catch up with practical details involving order forms and packaging. Mr. Steele is also perfecting a low-voltage LED version of Lanai Lights, which turn on like streetlights with a built-in sensor. It will be out the second quarter of this year. I get a kick out of putting things together and making them work, he says. The day-to-day stuff is other peoples responsibility. To that end, his son Jeff Steele is president of Lanai lights, and his oldest grandson, Zach Steele, is production manager. The inventor, meanwhile, might be out on the golf course. To learn more, visit www.lanailights. comLocal inventors clubThe Edison Inventors Association Inc. has about 200 members and meets at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers every third Wednesday of the month. Members are in various stages of invention, from patent searches to engineering drawings and prototypes to funding and manufacturing. President Joseph Gross has sought grants for members to fund their ideas, bringing in more than $30,000 last year. The Livingston Law Firm in Naples this year will also offer a free service free for a chosen, patent-worthy product that includes a viable business plan. Having a patent doesnt protect an idea from a big company that wants it. What it does allow is for the inventor to litigate. If you have a good enough idea and someone has enough money, theyre going to steal it, Mr. Gross says. Whoever has the most money wins. If they arent sure about a product, inventors might also consider a provisional patent, Mr. Gross adds. The provisional patent costs $110, is as easy to fill out as a 1040 tax form and buys the inventor a year of protection as they decide whether or not to move forward with the full patent process.

COURTESY PHOTOThe Granada REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY B11FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 Titan has four homes underwayin Briarwoodespite a temporary increase in new home sales during the homebuyer tax credit program last year, the new home construction market in Southwest Florida fell flat again toward the end of 2010. And while some analysts predict another stagnant market in 2011, this news falls faint on the ears of Bill Spinelli, president of Naples-based Titan Homes, who just pulled permits to initiate concurrent construction on four new inventory homes in the Briarwood community. Mr. Spinelli says his decision to break ground in this market is based on a firm belief that there are buyers ready for quality new homes priced right.

How about Greece? she asked one night after we had finished dinner and were sipping cups of herbal tea like two old maids gathered around the hearth. We dont speak Greek, I told her. She nodded sagely. Spain? Spanish boys are beautiful. I considered it, but all I envisioned were fiery Picassos steeped in Rioja and pickled from all those green olives people eat at tapas bars. I shook my head, no. No? Adele was indignant. What about Javier Bardem? Hes gorgeous, I told her, but too much too handsome, too fiercely sexual. We cant handle a man like that, I said. The Spaniards are too passionate for us. Adele thought it over, no doubt imagining our potential future life in Andalusia, where we would eat Serrano ham at the corner bar and share Manchego cheese with the swarthy herdsman we crossed. What about Enrique Iglesias? she asked finally. There, she had me. Ive had a crush on Enrique since the early 2000s, when his single Hero first convinced me of the My passion for Spain beats to an Enrique tune SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS ArtisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com sweet sensuality of Latin men. Would you cry if you saw me crying? Enrique asks in the song, his voice catching on the words. Would you save my soul tonight? He goes on to make the sort of popballad promises every girl wants to hear. I can be your hero, he claims. I can kiss away the pain. I will stand by you forever. You can take my breath away. I thought back to that song and to the brown-eyed man, really just a boy when Hero hit the airwaves, and I thought that maybe Adele was on to something. Perhaps Spain was exactly where we needed to be, and Enriques masculine sensitivity would be just the thing for a couple of independent but lonely women of the world like us. I hummed the chorus to Hero for the next two days, practically packing my bags for Barcelona. Or maybe Madrid. All I could think about were dark-haired men wrapped in Iberian passion, whispering lines like, Would you tremble if I touched your lips? (a direct Enrique quote). But then I found myself on Gawker one morning, perusing the latest celebrity gossip. It turns out Enrique has a new song, and Gawker has the video. I clicked play, and the opening scene rolled: Enrique in a sex club. Then, Enrique in a naughty tryst. Finally, Enrique in a compromising situation with two ladies. What happened to the man who asked, Would you swear that youll always be mine? Now hes singing a song titled Tonight Im !@#$ing You, with lyrics that run to the raunchy rather than the romantic. I know you want me, he says. So put it on me. Cause I already know what you want to do. Please excuse, I dont mean to be rude. But tonight Im !@#$ing you. Oh, Enrique. My dreams of a Spanish getaway suddenly felt ill-conceived, and now I have to reconfigure my escapist fantasies. Perhaps Greece wouldnt be so bad after all.

JAMMINFrom page C1Its not often that you find a husband and wife who work together as a team creating art; finding two artistic couples who have known each other for almost 10 years and who share a love of creating and friendship is, indeed, a rarity. Jessica and Eric Crabtree and Cynthia and Steve Adams met almost 10 years ago at a jobsite in Naples. Both couples were involved in a faux-finishing project that kept them busy for weeks and provided the setting for the beginning of a long friendship. After several years back in Ohio, the Crabtrees returned to Naples in 2009, lured by the artistic inspiration and fellowship they had initially enjoyed here. After the inaugural Shirley Street 16 event in January, the foursome, all members of the new artists cooperative, got together to discuss the show. The discussion turned to how many visitors had told each of them, separately, how unusual it was to find a couple that paints together. And here they were: two couples who do just that, in the same small district of galleries and studios in North Naples. Synergy is probably the best word to describe what happens when Steve and I paint together, Mrs. Adams says. Although we each have our unique styles, theres an energy or flow that we seem to tap into when we paint together. It most often results in a work of art greater than the sum of its two parts the definition of synergy. The Adamses and Crabtrees love the fact that within a few blocks of one another in the Shirley Street enclave of studios, more than a dozen fellow artists continually share ideas and encourage one another along the way to keep creating. A third husband-and-wife duo recently moved into the Artisans Plaza at 5760 Shirley St., where the Adams have their studio and gallery. Patty and Fritz Mayhew met in Pittsburgh as fifth-graders and next-door neighbors. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon in 1963 with degrees in fine art, they moved to Detroit and have been painting together ever since. He works in acrylics, and she works in pastels. At their space on Shirley Street, Mrs. Fritz paints and also sells her work, while Mr. Fritz uses it strictly as a studio. His work is for sale exclusively at the DeBruyne Fine Art Gallery in downtown Naples.About the Shirley Street 16A varied range of painting styles and techniques are represented in the membership of the Shirley Street 16, from abstract to figurative, traditional to expressionism, oil, water color, acrylic, collage, printmaking, encaustic and wearable art. In addition to the Adams, the Crabtrees and the Fritzes, artist members are: Karen Barrow, Susan Doerflinger, Joan Osborn Dunkle, Nancy Hall, Sandra Jackoboice, Alice Jacobs, Annabelle Johnson, Shirley Kelley, Carol Lader, Lynn Loscutoff, Patty Mayhew, Renate Nothman, Susan Alexander Shipman, Uriel Parker and Tammra Sigler. Their studios are in two plazas within walking distance of one another, at 5760 and 5850 Shirley St. They all take pleasure in inviting the public to their next event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 12-13. In keeping with the spirit of l ove, a portion of all sales will be donated to the Wishing Well Foundation.

This show takes you back to the essence of play, where youd use your imagination to turn common things into something else. (OK. This bed is a pirate ship, and were surrounded by water. That throw rug is an island, and those slippers are Pirana fish!) Theres a sense of silliness, a sense of playfulness from the very beginning of this show, and we as the audience willingly join along, laughing with delight at the actors cleverness in creating yet another character or portraying another impossible scene.A winning partnershipPatrick Barlow adapted the movie for stage, based on a concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon, who originally conceived of it as a two-man play. It received an Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2007. It played off-Broadway, then on Broadway. When it closed on Broadway, it was so popular that it played off-Broadway again. It received six Tony nominations, including one for Best Play (It won Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design). It also received a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience.This Fort Myers version is a co-production of Florida Rep with Orlando Shakespeare Theatre in Partnership with UCF, with staff and cast from both companies. Jim Helsinger, Orlando Shakes artistic director, directed this production with his tongue firmly in cheek. And while its every bit as good as the Broadway production, he put some of his own touches on it, including echoes as they speak and doors and portraits rolling past when two actors walk (in place) through a large house.This is a play with seemingly non-stop lighting and sound cues; kudos to lighting director Jim Hunter, sound designer Britt Sandusky and production stage manager Andrea Herbert. Costume designer Denise Warner did a lot with very little (and Florida Rep costume designer Roberta Malcolm is responsible for Hannays scarf that looks as if the wind is whipping it back). More farce than thriller, Alfred Hitchcocks The 39 Steps is zany and silly and playful and incredibly clever. Itll make you fall in love with theater all over again. blonde who finds herself at one point handcuf f ed t o Hannay; and Margaret, a young Scottish woman who, married to an older man and living on a farm in the highlands, longs for the excitement of city life. (Ms. Gibsons three characters, interestingly enough, are a brunette, a blonde and a redhead.) Ms. Gibson, as Margaret, and Mr. Plachy share some great moments together, including frantically miming a conversation when theyre supposed to be praying, and Margaret helping Hannay escape through a window. The remainder of the characters are played by Brad DePlanche and Brandon Roberts, who are listed in the program as Clown 1 and Clown 2. The comic duo portray everyone from policemen to theater people to underwear salesmen on a train. They also play the eccentric and endearing Mr. and Mrs. McGarrigle, an elderly couple who run an inn. The amply bosomed Mrs. McGarrigle (Mr. Roberts) is the lively one, while Mr. DePlanche plays her taciturn, apron-wearing husband who does her bidding. Their roles demand extremely quick changes. One scene that received applause from the opening-night audience took place at a train station. Within a minute, Mr. DePlanche and Mr. Roberts portray two underwear salesmen, two police officers, a train conductor, a paperboy and an elderly woman. In a carefully choreographed ballet, the two interact as all these characters, switching hats, changing their demeanor and accent with breakneck speed.Throughout the show they play so many different characters and provide so many laughs, its difficult to pick out the highlights. Mr. Roberts made me laugh simply by pantomiming sticking his head out of the window of a speeding train. Likewise for Mr. DePlanches portrayal of a professors flirty wife.As promised, this production does indeed include a chase scene on top of a speeding train, a parade of bagpipers, and a scene where our hero is chased by a plane a la North by Northwest. There are, in fact, numerous references to Hitchcock movies in this play. I lost count after a dozen. Some are reenactments of famous scenes, and others are the titles of movies, subtly or not-so-subtly worked into the dialogue. (One of my favorites is a prop: a bright white glass of milk on a tray, recalling the classic scene in Suspicion.)The secretIll tell you the secret of The 39 Steps. It isnt who the villain is, or what the 39 Steps actually are, or even whether Hannay is ever able to clear his name. The secret is that, at ARTS COMMENTARY Heres the thing about theater: You can have a big, lush pull-out-all-the-stops musical, like the recent touring production of South Pacific that came through town, or a $65 million Broadway show with all the whistles and bells, chockfull of special effects, a la Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. You can have a one-person show with a single actor moving about stage (think: Santaland Diaries or Shirley Valentine), or even just one man sitting behind a table telling stories, as Spalding Grey did.Theater is so wide, so wonderful, so diverse, it encompasses all these expressions.Alfred Hitchcocks The 39 Steps, playing at Florida Repertory Theatre through Feb. 26, emphatically falls on the bare bones side of the spectrum. It recreates the 1935 Hitchcock movie (which is based on John Buchans novel) using only four actors and very few props. But dont worry. They may use minimal props, but its maximum fun. Through the course of the show, the actors portray more than 150 people, sometimes changing character by simply switching hats and accents. The story revolves around Richard Hannay (Spencer Plachy), whos accused of murder when a woman is found dead in his home. The woman is a secret agent who, before dying, warns him of a sinister plot to smuggle out of the country military secrets vital to Englands air defense. She also mentions the 39 steps, without explaining what they are. Hannay wants to protect his country and also clear his name. Hes soon running through London and the highlands of Scotland, trying to stop the spies while also eluding capture. Hes the quintessential Hitchcock hero, the average guy whos falsely accused and finds himself thrown into bewildering and threatening circumstances. (Hitchcock seemed to take a certain glee in putting his characters in these jams.) Mr. Plachy, with his slicked-back hair and pencil-thin moustache, plays the role with the charm of a gentleman; you truly believe hes a man of the 1930s, gallant and upright. Hes the only actor who plays one character throughout the entire play. Deanna Gibson, the only actress in the cast, portrays three women: Annabella Schmidt, the secret agent with an almost too-thick accent; Pamela, a somewhat snobby British woman Hitchcocks classic icy b h a t t o NancySTETSON nstetson@floridaweekly.com Run to see Alfred Hitchcocks The 39 Stepsthe heart of it, this play is a love letter to theater and the way it weaves its magic. The 39 Steps is self-referential from the very beginning. The curtain opens on Ray Rechts bare set: brick walls and pipes, with a table and easy chair and a freestanding door and window. In the background, a couple of tall stepladders. On the edge of the stage, a row of old-fashioned gas footlights. Here it is, it seems to say. Were on a stage. See? You can even see the back wall.And Mr. Plachys character, bemoaning his boredom at the beginning of the play, says to himself: Pull yourself together man! Find something to do, you bloody fool! Something mindless and tri vial. Something utterly pointless. Something I know! Ill go to the theater! That should do the trick! Unlike most plays that want to draw us into the action and make us forget were watching a show, The 39 Steps continually reminds us. It shows us people stepping through a freestanding door and while they do so, turning the door around, so that theyre now inside the house. It shows us four chairs being pushed together to form the front and back seats of a car. It presents problems (such as showing the top of a speeding train on a theater stage) and then demonstrates how it solves them. Its almost as if a small group of actors said, Hey, lets put on a show, and grabbed whatever was around them as props. So a trunk serves as a train seat, or as the top of a train itself, or as the front desk of an inn. The quick switching of hats to change characters?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 C9 PUZZLE ANSWERS Staff and volunteers from Hope for Haiti enjoyed being the guests of honor as recipients of the Diamond Volunteer Program award at a reception in January at The Residences at Pelican Isle Yacht Club. Cathy Grassi, Hope for Haiti operations director, and Tiffany Kuehner, vice president, accepted the award from Kelly Capolino, founder of the Diamond Award Program. Hope for Haiti was selected to receive the award in recognition of the organizations efforts in Haiti, especially its immediate action and unyielding support to save Haitian lives following the January 2010 earthquake that devastated the impoverished Caribbean country. This is an honor for our volunteers, particularly this year, Ms. Grassi says. Hope for Haiti was one of the first organizations to land in Haiti and distribute emergency aid directly to hospitals and displaced peoples camps throughout Portau-Prince and the south. None of this could have been completed without the incredible outpouring of love, str ength, perseverance and generosity of our volunteers here in Naples. We applied for this award because we wanted to honor all our volunteers for their efforts, she added. They went above and beyond. She especially thanked Martha Cole, John Farren, Jerry Wallace, Valerie and Clair Flinn, Francesca Copeland, Ann Murray, Marcie Nguyen, Pat McGloin, Heather Lerner, Nancy Burke, Toni Smith, Margot and Fred Adams, Paul Durette, Ray Stone, Matt Jepsen, Lauralee and Richard Uihlein, and Dr. Steve Shukan and Candi Thompson, R.N., who not only volunteered for the first medical mission after the quake, but who also organized the 2010 Hope for Haiti gala. Jack and Connie Kindsvater hosted the Diamond Volunteer reception in their home. The Diamond Volunteer Program has three components: In addition to the award and reception, the Ms. Capolino organizes educational seminars for area nonprofits and also rewards 15 percent of her real estate commission to a nonprofit organization mentioned by one of her clients upon buying or selling a property. Its pretty simple, she says. A client just needs to mention what nonprofit they would like to donate to. About Hope for Haiti, Ms. Capolino adds, Their volunteers have helped save the lives of so many in Haiti and have given countless hours to give others HOPE. I am so proud to present this award to them. Founded more than 20 years by Naples resident and humanitarian JoAnne Kuehner, Hope for Haiti is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Haitian people, particularly children, through education, nutrition and health care. Through its support of more than 40 schools and 60 health care centers, the organization touches the lives of more than 500,000 Haitian men, women and children each year.

Uncross those fingers and believe that youre going to do well. And keep in mind that so many people have faith in your ability to succeed. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) T esting the w aters is a good way of learning about an opportunity before plunging right in. Ask more questions and be alert to any attempts to avoid giving complete answers. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) T ime is on y our side in the early part of the week. But anything left undone by midweek will need to be put into rush mode. The weekend offers choices for you and someone special. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) F inall y getting credit for a contribution is nice for all you idea-generating Ferdinands and Fernandas. But dont sit on your laurels under the cork tree. Use it as a first step to a bigger opportunity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Despit e the pr ogress made, a hint of doubt might set in. Thats OK. You need to stop and consider not only what youre doing but also how you are doing. Make adjustments where needed. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) T he dr eamer is dominant in the Moon Childs aspect, but a dollop of hardheaded practicality is coming up fast and jockeying for space. The challenge is to make room for both modes. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It s a good week for Leos and Leonas to start assessing what theyve done and what they plan to do. Moving to a new environment home or job-related is a possibility for some Cats. VIRGO (August 23 to September 2 2) The week calls for Virgos to make tough decisions, but in a way that leaves the door open for changes. Ask for advice from someone who has been in the position youre in now. LIBRA (September 23 to October 2 2) Disappointments are never easy to take, but you have the ability to learn from them and go on to success. Meanwhile, continue to build up your contacts. Youll need them soon. SCORPIO (October 23 to N o vember 21) Things might still be going much too slowly to suit you. But you need the time to make sure theyre going in the right direction. Its easier to make a course correction now rather than later. SAGITTARIUS (November 2 2 t o December 21) Showing some temperament at the way things are going is one way of getting your point across. Just dont overdo it, or you risk turning away more-moderate supporters. CAPRICORN (December 22 t o J anuary 19) Things could change more quickly this week than you like.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 C11 danHUDAK www.hudakonhollywood.comIts great that movies can serve as an escape from the everyday, especially when they take us places weve never seen. Sanctum easily has that covered; unfortunately, it takes us somewhere wed never want to go. Im not sure about you, but if someone offered to take me cave diving in a place where some passages are called Devils Restriction and The Elevator, Id kindly pass on the offer. I think most non thrill-seekers would, even those for whom spelunking is a hobby. So part of the fun going into Sanctum is the promise of watching an expedition team discover a giant, remote cave that heretofore has not been explored. And then the movie starts. After a half-hour of painful dialogue and an absurd amount of foreshadowing, a cyclone causes the cave to flood, forcing our explorers to find a new way out. With limited lighting, air supply and patience, the team dives deeper in the hope of finding a new exit. The five people who embark on the journey encapsulate just about every stock character you can ask for in this situation: Theres Frank (Richard Roxburgh), the world-famous cave diver who doesnt get along with his unappreciative but talented son Josh (Rhys Wakefield); theres the millionaire financier (Ioan Gruffudd) who wants to conquer nature, and his girlfriend Victoria (Alice Parkinson), who has no diving experience; and finally theres George (Dan Wyllie), Franks sidekick who has a history of decompression sickness. With that brief description, knowledgeable filmgoers can pretty accurately guess how the story will play out. This is not a surprise: The film was executive produced by James Cameron (Avatar), who hasnt told a fun, inspired story since True Lies in 1994. To be fair to director Alister Grierson, its not the predictability of the story thats its biggest problem. Rather, its the overwhelmingly dreary sense of despair that just wears you down, to the point where you dont care who lives or dies you just want the movie to end. Adding to the discomfort is a series of vivid and overly graphic scenes that make you cringe and want to look away. Whats even worse is that after theyre over, youre not eager to start looking again. You might be looking, by the way, through 3D glasses; though theres nothing here visually that warrants a third dimension. In fact, if it were possible to take away a dimension from the 2D, thatd be just fine. The more inyourface this movie is, the more unbearable it becomes, lending credence to the motto that there certainly is too much of a good thing. Sanctum is technically well made; the action is nicely staged and easy to follow, and the characters actions/ motivations are almost always understandable. However, its hard to appreciate bones protruding through skin and roughly 90 minutes of utter despair after a painfully boring setup. 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.The Rite (Anthony Hopkins, Colin ODonoghue, Alice Braga) A skeptical seminary student (Mr. ODonoghue) is sent to Rome to study exorcisms, but refuses to believe even after Father Lucas (Mr. Hopkins) shows him the real thing. Mr. Hopkins is good as usual, but Mr. ODonoghue doesnt have the leading man presence needed to carry the movie, and its a bit of a bore. Inspired by true events. Rated PG-13.Rabbit Hole (Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Dianne Wiest) Once happily married Becca (Ms. Kidman) and Howie (Mr. Eckhart) try to move on after their 4-year-old son is killed in an accident. Its depressing, sure, but the performances are so good you cant help but admire the movie. Rated PG-13.The Green Hornet (Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz) After his fathers (Tom Wilkinson) death, millionaire playboy Britt Reid (Mr. Rogen) teams up with his dads mechanic (Mr. Chou) to fight crime in L.A., only with a twist: Theyll attack the bad guys by being one of the bad guys. Its genuinely humorous and entertaining and in a welcome change, the live action 3D actually looks good. Rated PG-13.

Most noted for his ability to paint in the difficult egg tempera medium, Mr. Vickrey first made his name in New York City from 1954 to 1976 at the Midtown Galleries. During that period, he was also commissioned to paint 80 portraits of famous newsmakers for the cover of TIME magazine. Half of those portraits are in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The artists 31-year history in Naples has been almost as rich in other ways. After his introduction to Naples art collectors as early as 1974, Mr. Vickrey had his first exhibition at the Harmon Meek Gallery in 1981. Since then, gallery director/owner William Meek has set up loan exhibitions of Mr. Vickreys paintings for the Philharmonic Center for the Arts (a retrospective that traveled to a dozen museums over a five-year period starting in 1995) and an 80th birthday exhibition at The von Liebig Art Center five years ago. Two books have been published about the artist and his work: Donald Miller focused on Mr. Vickreys use of the St.Vincent nuns as a subject since 1949; Dr. Philip Eliasoph wrote a recent monograph about the artists entire life). Another major exhibit of Mr. Vickreys work opens in April at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Now 84 years old, Mr. Vickrey has been considered an American master for decades due to the strong exhibition history he has at museums and the fact that so many museums own his works and display them in their permanent collections. As a winter resident of Naples for about 10 years, he has become an adopted local celebrity. He is included in Ruth Dwyers newly released book about Naples area artists and their studios. Harmon-Meek Gallery is in the TIB Bank building at Sixth Avenue North and Tamiami Trail North. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

His role as AJCs director of interreligious affairs allowed him to participate in meetings with Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. Now settled on Sanibel Island, Rabbi Rudin remains active as an author and columnist, while serving as AJCs senior interreligious advisor. His new book is another step in his long career as an advocate and agent for principles and actions that will build understanding, respect and enthusiastic cooperation. The subtitle says it all: Tragic History, Promising Present, Fragile Future. Rabbi Rudin is frank and unapologetic as he probes the history of conflict between Christians and Jews. Indeed, conflict is too mild a term for many phases and issues in that history. A primary issue grows out of the early Christians decision to adopt one the several names of the Israelite people (the list includes Jews and Hebrews) for themselves. Calling themselves the New Israel, followers of Jesus felt that their new faith community superseded that of the Jewish people and that the coming of Jesus invalided the Israelites covenant with God. This replacement positioning is reinforced by the terms Old Testament and New Testament, constructions that Rabbi Rudin feels are unsuitable for either tradition, but demeaning to Judaism. Its message is in parallel with that of the dismissive evangelistic notion of Jews being somehow incomplete because of their failure to accept Christ. The labeling of Jews as Christ-killers is an obvious roadblock to any pursuit of constructive relationships between the faiths. Building interrelationships is not a homogenizing process, but rather one that allows for respectful particularity. Rabbi Rudin is dismayed by feel-good jargon like Judeo-Christian heritage, which suggests that we are all the same. He prefers formulations like Jewish and Christian traditions. We need to understand and respect differences, not pretend that they dont exist. In remarkably efficient and clearly crafted chapters, Rabbi Rudin puts in context several other concerns. These include the long institutionalization of Christian anti-Semitism, the need for the Shoah to be seen as a unique historical tragedy and the term Holocaust to escape the fate of becoming a lower-cased generic term, and the need to understand the intrinsic relationship between the Jewish people and the modern state of Israel. I do not wish to give the impression that this book is a rehashing of grievances. It is much more than that: at once more profound and more practical. Christians & Jews Faith to Faith is a guidebook for effective, respectful and even celebratory interreligious relations. Rabbi Rudin underscores the enormous positive steps that have been taken within the last half-century. He stresses the need for true understanding through committed listening and honest dialogue that is not merely polite or politically correct. He insists that the positive path of recent decades cannot be taken for granted as the future path without continued hard work. Patience and urgency must be held in fruitful balance. The author argues that working toward constructive relationships is a necessity, and that the complication of engaging the Islamic community into the process of interreligious relationship building is an enormous one. In his last two chapters, and in several appendices that include a discussion guide and a resource bibliography, Rabbi Rudin offers the nuts and bolts of program design and implementation for professional and lay community leaders. He wants us to get moving, to recognize that, It is no longer enough for faith communities to simply live side by side in a kind of de facto coexistence. Rabbi Rudin believes that the tragic past is not irreversible, and that effective dialogue can give our communities a spiritual mooring so that people who believe differently can reside together in peace. A theological girding of religious pluralism, he writes, will guarantee its permanence and will replace the facile sense of toleration that currently exists among religious groups. Let us hope so. Rabbi James Rudin will speak about his book and sign copies at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 27, at Beth Tikvah, 1459 Pine Ridge Road.

The Jewish kids were all friends, as they knew one another from the synagogue. But there was not a lot of mixing with the Christian population. Young Jim Rudins father was asked, as a man with no vested interest, to judge his neighbors Christmas decorations each year, and this was the beginning of Jims interaction with the Christian community a positive one. Another part of his life journey that prepared him for work in interreligious relationships was his undergraduate career at Wesleyan University. While there, he enrolled in a Great Books course taught by V ictor B utterf ield, the university president. Reading the master works of ancient and modern philosophy and literature led Mr. Rudin to recognize the central importance of the Jewish contribution to civilization and the fact that this tradition was enhanced and preserved by rabbis throughout much of the past 2,000 years. He was motivated to do the same. Mr. Rudin completed his undergraduate education at George Washington University in 1955. He then went on to rabbinical school, receiving his masters degree and rabbinical ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 1960. Rabbi Rudins first rabbinical assignment was to serve as a United States Air Force Chaplain (1960-1962). This experience was perhaps the most important in preparing a foundation for his later career. Stationed in Japan and making visits to Korea on a regular basis, he found himself working within a community of clergymen of various faiths. Cooperation, joint problem solving and living and working in the same facilities for two years prepared him as much as anything else for what would be his multi-decade career with the American Jewish Committee. He learned a lot about Christianity, and he realized that the other chaplains knew little about authentic Judaism. After his military service, Rabbi Rudin served congregations in Kansas City, Mo., (1962-1964) and Champaign-Urbana, Ill., (1964-1968). During the latter position, he did graduate studies in history at the University of Illinois. In 1968, Rabbi Rudin began his career as a member of the American Jewish Committee senior professional staff, where he served as director of the Interreligious Affairs Department (1983-2000). He is currently the AJCs senior interreligious adviser. A former chairman of the International Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultations, Rabbi Rudin participated in 10 meetings with Pope John Paul II and was a guest of honor at the 1994 Vatican concert commemorating the Shoah. In April 2008, he was chosen by the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops to respond to Pope Benedict XVIs address to Jewish leaders in Washington, D.C.

Throughout the past 40 years, it has become popular to think green. But our ancestors had to hunt for food and killed buffalo, deer and passenger pigeons, making some species endangered and others extinct. It was proper to kill animals, throw garbage out into the backyard without composting it or play with the mercury from a broken thermometer (which today we know is dangerous). Toys reflected scenes of everyday life, so it is not surprising to find an antique childs plate with what we consider a frightening decoration. Some small plates were made with the letters of the alphabet embossed on the border. These alphabet plates were popular from the 1780s to the 1860s. The letters taught a child to read, and the center design usually included a nursery rhyme, proverb or wise saying. Some plates pictured a mother or father doing everyday jobs like cooking or sewing or farming. Alphabet plates were made of pottery, porcelain, glass or metal and sometimes came with matching mugs. One early-19th-century English plate that recently auctioned caused comment among the bidders. The transfer-decorated Staffordshire plate pictures hunters in a canoe surrounded by swimming seals. The hunters are beating the seals to death with clubs so they can sell the fur. Canada banned hunting baby harp seals in the water in 1984, and Russia banned killing baby seals in 2009. Before various countries bans, hunting killed many baby seals and lowered the seal population, but the bans have brought seal herds back to a larger size. Q: Twenty years ago, I bought two antique Windsor chairs from a friend for $1,500. A dealer recently appraised them for $1,250 each. I have been unable to find any information about the cabinetmaker. His mark is machine-carved on both chairs and reads John M. Bair, Hanover, Penna. A: The machine-carved marks indicate that your chairs are not antiques. Bairs Cabinet Shop, the name of John M. Bairs business, operated from 1933 to 1964 in Hanover and later Abbottstown, Pa. So your chair dates to Bairs early years in Hanover. Bairs made high-quality reproductions of antique furniture, especially Colonial Revival furniture. So your chairs date from the 1930s at the earliest. Theyre not antique, but that doesnt mean theyre not well-made chairs worth the price you paid or more. Q: I have several records marked Vogue.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 C23 printed right on the vinyl. Id like to know something about them. Are they valuable?A: Vogue picture records were made by Sav-Way Industries of Detroit from May 1946 to April 1947. Each record has a picture on both sides, sometimes signed by the artist. The records pictures were applied to an aluminum core and then covered with vinyl. Then the grooves were stamped into the vinyl. Most of the records were 10-inch 78 rpm, but some 12-inch 78 rpm records were also made. The first Vogue picture record was Basin Street Blues with Sugar Blues on the flip side. More than 70 different Vogue picture records were made. SavWay Industries claimed it was making 500,000 records a month in early 1947, but the company went bankrupt a few months later. It is still fairly easy to find Vogue picture records for sale. Most sell for $10 to $50. Q: I am a collector of Occupied Japan ceramics. Another collector I ran into told me that Occupied Japan items were stamped in red, black or blue, and that a piece with a red mark is more valuable than a piece marked in blue or black. Is this true? A: Florence Archambault, the author of books on Occupied Japan, says there is no evidence that what you were told is true. For one thing, marks on Occupied Japan items can be found in a variety of other colors, including yellow, green, gold and brown. The Made in Occupied Japan mark was required on Japanese exports starting in February 1947. In August 1949 the requirement was altered and ceramic exports could be marked Made in Occupied Japan, Occupied Japan, Made in Japan or simply Japan. That means that identical pieces can be marked differently. But collectors of Occupied Japan ceramics prefer pieces marked Made in Occupied Japan or Occupied Japan. The occup ation ended in April 1952. Tip: Some tea and coffee stains on dishes can be removed by rubbing them with damp baking soda.

Now, with its sleek second location, even more people can enjoy the authentic Cuban cuisine served up by the hospitable Fernandez family and staff. I can recommend the Cuban nachos, an inventive mix of thinly sliced fried plantains, savory chicken, cheese sauce, capers and parsley (plan to share this one); calamari in a well-seasoned tomato sauce with pepper and onions, a refreshing departure from fried calamari; ropa vieja, a classic dish of shredded flank steak in a tomato sauce with peppers and onions; and shrimp and scallops in white wine, garlic and capers. Yuca in creamy garlic sauce, black beans and yellow rice and sweet fried plantains were great sides. For dessert, you cant go wrong with the flan or the tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2010Fuji Sushi Bar & Asian Bistro, 6355 Naples Blvd., Naples; 593-5550 This relative newcomer manages to accomplish what many of the big boys dont: It delivers first-rate Asian fare with style and flair in an intimate and peaceful setting. Owners John and On Augsondthung are from Thailand but have a firm grasp on the intricacies of sushi, which Mr. Augsondthung expertly crafts while his wife handles the front of the house and an uncle takes care of the hot Thai dishes. A Fuji lobster roll melded tempura lobster, avocado, asparagus, scallions and masago. Another clever dish is called tuna chips, which blends raw tuna, avocado, scallions and a spicy sauce with tortilla chips. Pad Thai devotees will swoon at Fujis version. Other standouts include lettuce wraps, ninja shrimp, royal duck curry and fried bananas served with blueberry jam and stripes of chocolate sauce. Beer and wine served.

Mark and Mary Cheng bring an elegant new standard to the region with their exceptional food and service. Youll find no egg foo yung or crab Rangoon on this menu, just imaginative, artfully plated real Chinese food. Never mind the name: Order the salted pepper calamari, which consists of tender tubes of squid fried to perfection and topped with toasted garlic and onion. The Peking duck is always available and well worth ordering. Chilean sea bass with two sauces hearty black bean and delicate garlic was terrific, as were the mango prawns, with sweet mangoes and hot red peppers topped with pine nuts.

From the warm bread with olive oil and al dente broccoli rabe with spicy homemade sausage and crisp polenta, to the vivid red tuna carpaccio with caper berries to the huge and delicious zuppe di pesce, to desserts of tiramisu and sfogliatelle, this was an exceptionally good meal. Service was also excellent, including table checks by owner Jay Cherr, one of which included a visit with 1-year-old daughter, Sophia, on whom he and wife/co-owner Camille clearly dote.

Vegetarian Morocco garbanzo and lentil soup was hearty and well seasoned, as was fire-roasted green chile and corn chowder with bacon. There are white and sweet potatoes along with toppings, a handful of pasta offerings and a make-yourown-sundae station that was especially popular with the many children dining there with their parents.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10-16, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 Angelinas has rightfully earned a reputation for elegant, sophisticated dining. The luxurious dining rooms, top-flight servers and quintessentially Italian menu make it a destination restaurant for food lovers from Fort Myers to Naples. Now theres yet another reason to make the trip: Sunday brunch. Yes, Angelinas has offered a Sunday buffet for a couple of years. But as of Sunday, the price dropped from $50 to $35, making it a very good deal, especially when you consider that the price includes unlimited bloody Marys and mimosas. The bloody Marys come with all manner of condiments: Tabasco sauce, of course, as well as horseradish, blue-cheese-stuffed olives and even some scotch bonnet-infused vodka for those who want an extra kick. I opted for the mimosa, a combination of fresh-squeezed orange juice and Fantinel prosecco, dressed up with a large, ripe strawberry. But even without the beverages, this brunch is worth the price for the superb food served. There are no filler dishes designed to make the spread look more substantial than it is. Each offering contains fresh, quality ingredients that have been painstakingly prepared and plated. The array is displayed on tables situated throughout the lobby, encircling the stunning vertical wine tower. Everything is laid out well, requiring little effort on the part of diners. Simply pick up a plate on your way from the dining room to the buffet then start near the entrance with the antipasti olives, marinated carrots and green beans, and an excellent giardiniera (delicately pickled vegetables) fresh, crusty Italian bread, cheese (creamy gorgonzola dolce, rubiolo and fontina), cured meats (speck, sopressata and prosciutto) and poached salmon. While I didnt try everything, the items I did sample were excellent. The marinated carrots and green beans were tender-crisp, the prosciutto tender and not overly salty. The salmon was moist and subtlely seasoned. Rather than the standard eggs Benedict, Angelinas serves poached eggs over pancetta herbed potato hash, which has significantly more flavor and texture than an English muffin with a slice of Canadian bacon. Instead of hollandaise, theres gribiche sauce, with a mayonnaise-mustard base and a touch of tarragon and other seasonings. Its lighter in texture and flavor, and went well with the egg and potato mixture. Homemade brioche French toast with butter and warm syrup was another delicious treat. Two of the items that are always on the lineup, due to popular demand, are the butternut squash ravioli and the cinnamon rolls. Had I not been working, I could easily have made a meal of these two items alone. The ravioli were like little pillows from heaven chewy, creamy and just slightly sweet. They made a delicious counterpoint to the carved beef tenderloin, pan-seared grouper with citrusherb risotto and roasted fennel and even the corn pudding-stuffed quail with cherry balsamic demi-glace. The cinnamon rolls were exceptional, neither too sweet nor too sticky and redolent of cinnamon. And then there were the cranberry scones that were downright ethereal tender, moist, with chewy bits of cranberry and a light dusting of sugar on top, made even more delicious with a dollop of Devonshire cream and some homemade strawberry jam. I tried the vegetables broccolini and carrots not really expecting much, but thinking it would be nutritionally judicious to include them. They turned out to be just as good as the entrees and breads. After the cinnamon roll and scone, one probably doesnt need dessert, but need isnt the primary consideration at a buffet. Arranged on several tiers were lemon cheesecake, triple chocolate mousse, cannoli, an assortment of homemade cookies and chocolate mint panna cotta. I had the panna cotta while my companion tried the cookies a chocolate biscotti dipped in chocolate, a pistachio biscotti, a chocolate-fig cookie and a buttery shortbread. This is a great finish to a meal, with just a few choice bites to satisfy the sweet tooth. The panna cotta was well worth the calories. Within the dark chocolate cover were layers of creamy chocolate and mint atop a chocolate cookie crust. Our server said it reminded him of a Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie, and Id have to agree, except that the velvety, smooth texture and depth of flavor was far superior to those commercially produced wafers. Our oh-so-satisfying meal concluded with a cup of Tuscan garden blend tea a fragrant decaffeinated variety that resembled an understated red zinger with cream. Service was every bit as good as the food. Our server made sure we had appropriate silverware, that plates vanished between courses, water glasses were full and that all was progressing well throughout the meal. He was pleasant and engaging without overdoing it, a balance thats hard to achieve. I highly recommend this brunch for those who enjoy a hearty midday meal on Sundays. At the current price, it would be hard to find a better opportunity. food & wine CALENDAR Friday, Feb. 11, 6-8 p.m., The Good Life o f Naples: Shelly Connors demonstrates how to create a 1950s retro Valentines Day; $75, 2355 Vanderbilt Beach Road; 514-4663.

Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story1 p.m. Feb. 27As Dustin Hoffman narrates off camera, the stories of amazing Jewish major leaguers from Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax to Shawn Green and Kevin Youkilis come to life on the screen. There is something about the grand old game of baseball that has acted as a conduit for successive generations of Jewish immigrants and drawn them into the fabric of American society and culture. This documentary is also an expression of how much Jews love America, because nothing is more American than baseball. Running time: 91 minutes. Killing Kasztner, a Florida premiere2 p.m. March 6Rezso Kasztner was a Hungarian Jew who was at once vilified and extolled for negotiating with high-ranking Nazi officials to save the lives of thousands of his fellow Jews. In face-to-face negotiations with the architect of the Final Solution, Adolf Eichmann, Mr. Kasztner bargained and bribed his way to the largest rescue of its kind during the Holocaust. In postwar Israel this extraordinary feat was somehow seen as an act of betrayal; Mr. Kasztner stood trial as a Nazi collaborator and was later assassinated on the doorstep of his Tel Aviv home. Running time: 120 minutes. English and Hebrew with subtitles. An Evening of Comedy and Music with Vic Arnell and Holly Lipton7 p.m. March 13Vic Arnell has appeared on stage with Tom Jones, Liza Minnelli, Barry Manilow, Engelbert Humperdinck and Gladys Knight and the Pips, among others, and has won Cleo Awards for his work in televison commercials.
