Call for more details or to schedule your appointment.What is it with these rich guys? They get a billion or so bucks in the bank and all of a sudden they start having dreams of living in the White House. The latest manifestation of this delusional state is Donald Trump, who insists that he is seriously considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination. More about the obstreperous Mr. Trump later, but lets first examine this whole philosophy of bored billionaires who harbor notions of political greatness. Of the modern-day tycoons who turned politician, Nelson Rockefeller probably achieved the most. He served as governor of New York and eventually wound up as vice president under Gerald Ford, but Mr. Rockefeller felt that anything less than the presidency itself was beneath his standing. After all, he was a Rockefeller. I never wanted to be vice president of ANYTHING, he once famously announced. So far flung and convoluted were Mr. Rockefellers financial holdings that some observers wondered how he could ever avoid a possible conflict of interest if he had been elected president. Oh, dont worry, one writer quipped, Rockys going to put Venezuela in a blind trust.Mr. Rockefeller worked hard to cultivate an image as a statesman right up to his death in 1979. Initial reports said the former vice president suffered a heart attack in his study as he worked on his memoir, which was to be a serious political tome. It was later learned, however, that Mr. Rockefellers 70-year-old heart had seized while he was in flagrante delicto with a sumptuous female aide 45 years his junior.Before this embarrassingly salacious tidbit emerged, one columnist wrote that Mr. Rockefeller had died as he had lived. He was doing what he loved most, tackling great issues right up until the end, it was written. He was having a ball. Well, at least the poor writer got the ball part right. And then there was the case of H. Ross Perot. Mr. Perot, the megalomaniac munchkin billionaire from Dallas, used appearances on Larry King Live in 1991 to create a groundswell of support for his independent bid for the White House. Through these appearances, Mr. Perot fashioned a persona of a blunt-speaking businessman who would run the whole damn country like a corporation. With his jug ears and bad haircut, Mr. Perot didnt look like a billionaire. Only his exquisitely tailored suits hinted at his true standing. Mr. Perots candidacy in 1992 fizzled, but it might have cost George H.W. Bush a second term. Four years later, Steve Forbes, the magazine magnate, sought the Republican nomination. He also tried again in 2000. About the best you can say for Mr. Forbes is that he wasnt quite as loony as he looked. He spoke in favor of a flat tax, mostly, and actually won a couple of primaries. But that was about it. And now we return to the monstrously loathsome Mr. Trump, who seems to be everywhere these days. He has become a leader in the birther movement, which seeks to cast doubt on whether President Obama was born in the United States. Mr. Trump also promises to kick the asses of China, Iran, most of the Arab world and just about anybody else he thinks is in need of such treatment.He also says he will once again make the United States respected and feared around the globe. Yeah, sure. Like foreign leaders will take seriously this pudgy, puffed-up gasbag who looks like something that should be floating above Macys Thanksgiving parade. And of course that coonskin cap hairdo of his will inevitably evoke comparisons to the style and elegance of John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan when he travels abroad.In almost every interview, Mr. Trump thinks it important to remind us that he is a very smart guy. Well, if hes so smart, why must he keep telling us? Perhaps it is because a lot of us dont necessarily believe it is so. Mr. Trump will not go away anytime soon. His recently assumed status as Lord High Mayor of Crazy Town has earned him the ultimate Republican sinecure: a recurring presence on Fox News as a commentator. Perhaps the saddest aspect of Mr. Trumps possible candidacy is that it creates even more noise within the Republican Party. Off-the-wall potential candidates like Mr. Trump, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich drown out the messages of serious, thoughtful contenders, including former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The media are partially to blame for this mess. Crazies like Mr. Trump and Ms. Bachmann make great copy. (If they didnt, I wouldnt be writing this column.) Gov. Daniels has a slew of noteworthy ideas and an outstanding record of achievement, but he is a bit of a dud on the stump, as are Mr. Pawlenty and Mr. Romney. By focusing on the lunatic fringe, the debate constricts to nonissues like Mr. Obamas birth certificate and whether he was influenced by the Mau Mau Uprising (as Mr. Huckabee has asserted). In the end, such trivia accrues to the presidents advantage and draws attention from the very real questions about his leadership (or lack thereof) and his overall fitness to serve a second term. If Mr. Trump, Ms. Bachmann and Mr. Gingrich do indeed enter the Republican contest, it will be the political equivalent of the proverbial car crash along a busy highway. We will wish to divert our eyes from the unseemly spectacle but, in the end, we will slow down and rubberneck as we always do. And that will suit President Obama and the Democratic Party just fine.

It was his last appeal. Davis has been on Georgias death row for close to 20 years after being convicted of shooting to death off-duty police officer Mark MacPhail in Savannah. Since his conviction, seven of the nine non-police witnesses have recanted their testimony, alleging police coercion and intimidation in obtaining the testimony. Despite the doubt surrounding his case, Troy Anthony Davis could be put to death within weeks. Davis is now at the mercy of the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Parole, which could commute his sentence to life without parole. It will be a tough fight, despite widespread national and international support for clemency from figures like Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. Davis sister, Martina Correia, has tirelessly campaigned for justice for her brother. In response to the Supreme Court decision, she told me: We were really shocked and appalled yesterday when we received the news ... no one wants to look at the actual innocence, and no one wants to look at the witness recantation as a real strong and viable part of this case, even though new witnesses have come forward. There needs to be a global mobilization about Troys case, and the fact that in the United States its not unconstitutional to execute an innocent person needs to be addressed once and for all by the U.S. Supreme Court.Correia brings up a significant but littleknown fact about death-penalty law in the U.S., namely, that current court precedent allows the execution of innocent people. Remarkably, the Supreme Court, in a 1993 opinion, suggested that actual innocence is not a sufficient cause to be let free. The court only cares if the legal rules are followed, while acknowledging that innocent people could still be convicted and put to death. In such cases, a prisoner could appeal for executive clemency. It seems the court has not yet learned what many states have, that the death-penalty system is broken beyond repair.Illinois recently became the 16th state in the U.S. to outlaw the death penalty. Gov. Pat Quinn, after signing the bill into law, said, I have concluded that our system of imposing the death penalty is inherently flawed ... it is impossible to devise a system that is consistent, that is free of discrimination on the basis of race, geography or economic circumstance, and that always gets it right. He follows an earlier Illinois governor, Republican George Ryan, who commuted the death sentences of 120 death-row prisoners in that state. Both Illinois governors bring to mind former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun, who wrote, in a dissenting opinion in 1994 after the court denied yet another death-row inmates last appeal, From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death. Tinkering with the machinery of death is just what some states seem to be doing. Thiopental is one of the three drugs used in the lethal cocktail administered in most executions in this country. Hospira, the last U.S.-based company to make sodium thiopental, quit making the controlled drug, creating a national shortage. States began scrambling to keep their death chambers well-stocked. When California borrowed a similar drug from Arizona, California Undersecretary of Corrections and Rehabilitation Scott Kernan wrote in an e-mail, You guys in AZ are life savers ... Georgia, it turns out, seems to have illegally imported its supply from a dubious, London-based company called Dream Pharma Ltd., run by a husband and wife out of a rented space in the back of a driving school. Georgia is not currently licensed by the Drug Enforcement Administration to import controlled substances, so the DEA recently confiscated the states thiopental supply. Pending an investigation, Georgia will not have this key ingredient and will not be able to execute Davis or any other death-row inmate. On the same day that the Supreme Court denied Davis appeal, Amnesty International issued its annual report on the death penalty. The United States remains among the worlds leading executioners, along with China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and North Korea. In addition to leading the fight for her brother, Martina Correia has been fighting for her own life. The day of the court decision was the 10th anniversary of her ongoing battle against breast cancer. Her face adorns the mobile mammography van that helps save the lives of poor women in Savannah. The National Breast Cancer Coalition named her and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Women Who Get It Right. Correia, with customary humility, feels she wont have earned the title until her brothers life is saved as well. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 800 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier, recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.Georgia and the Supreme Court: Tinkering with the machinery of death kn U al pl 19 ce amyGOODMAN Special to Florida Weekly To the Editor Many of us moved to Southwest Florida to enjoy the beautiful coastal environment. I have lived here for 12 years and spent countless enjoyable hours on my boat, fishing and sightseeing in the Rookery Bay and Ten Thousand Islands Aquatic Preserves. Many of us also rely on this amazing ecosystem not only for our quality of life (from the water we drink to the air we breathe), but as the economic engine that drives our important tourism industry. Visitor surveys indicate that large numbers of tourists select Collier County because of its unspoiled environment. Sport and recreational fishing, boating, kayaking, bird watching and many other activities take place on our pristine waters. But funding to protect this environment is in jeopardy. The Florida Legislature has released plans for deep cuts to the state program that protects our aquatic preserves. If approved, these cuts will close six offices and eliminate 23 staff positions charged with protecting half of the states network of 41 aquatic preserves. Thats right. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection protects and conserves 4 million acres of Floridas finest marine and coastal resources with a budget of less than $2 million. This program has already been cut 25 percent over the last three years to offset budget deficits. We are fortunate to have Rookery Bay and Ten Thousand Islands aquatic preserves here in Collier County; Lee County has aquatic preserves in Estero Bay, Matlacha Pass, Pine Island, Charlotte Harbor and Lemon Bay. However, now we need to preserve funding for these and all the states aquatic preserves, which are tied together in a network that combines efforts toward habitat restoration, environmental indicator monitoring, education and stewardship. What can you do to help? Take five minutes to send e-mails to: State Sen. Garrett Richter, richter.; State Rep. Matt Hudson, matt.; State Rep. Trudi Williams, trudi.; State Rep. Jeanette Nuez,; and State Rep Kathleen Passidomo, Urge them to support the governors recommended budget for Floridas aquatic preserves, which keeps the program intact. Let DEPs new Secretary Herschel Vinyard, Herschel.vinyard@dep.state., know of your support by copying him on your e-mail message. Its time for Floridians to once again stand together and take action to protect and preserve our coast and our quality of life.

PAGE 6 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 April is Autism Awareness MonthFlorida Weekly will feature an article on different aspects of dealing with autism during the month. BY EDEN AUTISM SERVICES FLORIDA_______________________________Special to Florida WeeklyNutritionists have long touted the link between proper nutrition and improved health, and continued research validates the importance of a diet containing natural foods, free of additives and preservatives. Science is even recognizing many of these foods as super foods, rich in the vitamins, minerals and nutrients a healthy body and brain need to function at optimal condition. Proper nutrition is also a key component in the treatment of individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Often, the bodys physiology does not tolerate certain foods (gluten and dairy products are the most common), which can contribute to a variety of issues for the person with autism. Usually compounding the problem are repetitive eating habits foods the individual has chosen based on texture, color and even brand packaging. There are a handful of major diets that successfully address very specific concerns a child with autism may be experiencing. Before choosing one, however, its important to determine the childs unique physiology and blood chemistry, according to Trudy Moon Eisel, a certified clinical nutritionist and a doctor of chiropractic in Naples. Each child with autism is different. We look at the biochemical individuality of each client, she says. A glutenand dairy-free diet is one of the most popular for children with autism, but you really need to identify what truly is the problem. Theres often more to the story than doing a glutenand diary-free plan. Simple testing of hair, feces and blood, she said, can determine deficiencies and problem areas, including exposure to heavy metals, dysbiosis (intestinal issues) or food allergies or sensitivities. These biochemical tests may also detect the absence of certain organic acids that improve brain chemistry or if theres a genetic tendency toward allergies to certain foods, said Dr. Eisel, who works with patients with autism and their families through her practice Moon Family Health Center. Part of the nutritional intervention may involve working backward as Dr. Eisel calls it. As part of her research into environmental factors, she considers the parents surroundings during pregnancy where they lived and even water supply and foods eaten. Often times, when children are found to have high metals in their blood stream, it is because of the water that they are drinking.Once problem areas are identified, the nutritionist will develop a plan that incorporates missing but highly beneficial nutrients. Often those will include cod liver oil and fat-soluble A and D vitamins, says Dr. Eisel, who also advises parents to become diligent label readers to steer clear of additives, artificial sweeteners, MSG and other flavor enhancers. Probiotics are also very helpful in addressing dysbiosis.One of the major issues with autism is an imbalance in the floor of the gut usually due to the person eating things they shouldnt, she says.The ultimate goal, says Dr. Eisel, is to identify the foods that will ease the burden on the body, to get the child with autism functioning at the highest level with the least amount of stimulants. The proper nutrition is not going to change the diagnosis but it will assist physiologically. It can improve attention span, eye contact and daily bowel habits. Ive had some parents tell me their child sleeps through the night. Eden Autism Services Floridas services range from comprehensive clinical and outreach services, including program consultations and early intervention, to operation of schools in Naples and Fort Myers for school-age students, an organic training farm and residential and employment service,s for adults.

Fun with nutrition:Parents and caregivers can also make nutrition fun by creating simple snacks that are big on avor, color and crunch. As long as the child isnt allergic to peanuts, the old standby of celery stalks spread with peanut butter packs a big crunch and lots of bene cial nutrients. Or, substitute cream cheese as an alternative to peanut butter, add raisins and you have ants on a log. >>Butter ies: Two thinly sliced peppers for wings, a cucumber body, cherry tomato head and chive antennae. >>Spider treats: On a gluten-free graham cracker, place peanut butter body and head, two raisin eyes and gluten-free pretzel legs.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 Those are the words of the companys slim, trim new leader, Brian Lucas. And thats the companys concessionary new reality, a huge departure from decades of celebrated solvency for a high-end, high-profile developer that once seemed to do everything right. Polished, amicable, articulate and quietly authoritative, Mr. Lucas, 37, sat in a faux old-time clubhouse at Bonita Bay Groups Verandah on the Orange River in east Lee County last week, discussing the companys new direction. A public relations spokeswoman, Tina Matte, joined him and contributed periodically to the conversation. Her presence suggests the care with which the company and its young vice chairman are crafting a new image. Ms. Matte is a partner in Gravina, Smith, Matte & Arnold, a marketing and public relations firm that Bonita Bay has contracted for a couple of decades through both thick and very thin even as the company laid off most of its employees. When the recession began following the 2005 hurricanes that devastated parts of the region, Bonita Bay set about reducing its employee count from a high of 1,500, with 143 members of the corporate team, to the current company of 243 employees, with only 11 serving on the corporate team. Debt-reduction has been the primary goal these last three years, says Mr. Lucas. In November of 2010 (five months ago), we got the debt down finally to a more manageable number. The debt had peaked at about $120 million, but in November, we purchased the note from the creditors. We doubled down on the Bonita Bay Group. We increased our exposure to the company (as a family), and thats given us some flexibility. Much of that flexibility came from a controversial company decision to pay back the deposits of club members those who sought them much more slowly than the original 30-day guarantee in the contract. The downside: lawsuits and member angst. The upside: the company survives, and all the members who want deposits back will ultimately get them, rather than losing them to creditors or a bank, promises Mr. Lucas. The lesson is the Robb & Stucky lesson, he notes, citing the famous locally owned furniture store that recently declared bankruptcy in Lee County. The media headlines were that the customers lost all their deposits something like $11 million or $12 million. The bank gets its money first. The customer goes to the back of the line. For us, the (club member) deposits are the customers, not the banks. If wed gone into bankruptcy like Robb & Stucky, it would have been completely different for our customers. The creditors would be making the decision in their own best interests, as they have to. Meanwhile, of necessity the company has changed, Mr. Lucas says. The majority of our land now is undeveloped and unimproved. Sure, its expensive to hold it, but theres not the carry of a community with infrastructure. So weve done a tremendous job of cutting all expenses, and now the majority of our assets are cash flowneutral. The process was torturous. The Bonita Bay Group survived, rather than declaring bankruptcy after three years of almost no sales and no cash income beginning in 2005, by choosing to endure a drastic, selfimposed diet, combined with a swift schedule of economic amputation, selling off property and golf membership clubs to get out of five of its seven communities. To cite an example, Mr. Lucas names Twin Eagles, a huge golf community it bought from a company in bankruptcy in 2003, and set about improving. At Twin Eagles, if you added what we paid for it, the cost of the operation, the cost of development and of putting in infrastructure, it came out to $105 or $110 million. We sold it for $11 million. Thats a dramatic example of what we faced.The club fightBonita Bay also faced the doubt and wrath of club members who were promised they could get club deposits back 30 days after they asked for them, and were then told they couldnt. With a huge jump in those requests at the height of the recession the end of 2008 the company had to backtrack. It was either to go bankrupt, or sell the clubs to members and find another way to pay back the money to members later but not in 30 days. We just didnt have it, Mr. Lucas explains. Some sources cite the figure of members invested in clubs enterprisewide at $245 million. We said, What are our assets? One, they were land. And two, they were the clubs, which were always meant to be sold back to members, Mr. Lucas recalls. We said, The land is still illiquid, and theres no market for land. So we have to sell some of our clubs to the membership. That happened at Bonita Bay, at communities within The Brooks (Shadow Wood and the Commons Club, for example), at Mediterra, and at Twin Eagles, when Bonita Bay sold not just the club, but the whole project. With these club sales, it wasnt fun, Mr. Lucas adds. We were not all sitting around singing Kumbaya. It was difficult. It was painful. In the end, the only development company in the region ever to offer a 30-day refund no questions asked, had to bury that generosity and get on with business. Typically, developers or club owners offer a three-to-one refund policy, in which three new members have to join before one member can withdraw with a refunded deposit. Now, Mr. Lucas says, the Bonita Bay Group has paid back most of those who insisted on a return of deposits, and it will pay back the rest. When you pay a deposit, he explains, its money I owe you. I still owe you money, but the mechanism of how Im paying back has changed. Refunds are happening theyve been happening all along. When we negotiated to sell the clubs back to members, 85 percent joined the new clubs, and 15 percent didnt. Those are still my deposit liabilities. And weve paid out 80 percent of that 15 percent.Old roots, new directionsWhile the company continues to face problems, including lawsuits from dissatisfied club members, it has also established a new reality that could allow it not only to survive, but conceivably to thrive. From the ground up say, along the Verandah golf courses or from the passenger seat of a marketing spokeswomans Lexus SUV, the company still sparkles. But from the books down, its a gaunt survivor of a bloody economic war, a hollowed-out victim of hard times. No longer is Bonita Bay the premier American model of high-end golf-course development in a sunshine world where residents enjoy the top per-capita income in the United States, outside of the Connecticut suburbs of New York City (Stamford-Greenwich) thats how The Wall Street Journal characterized the troubled company in a frontpage report 18 months ago, referring to Bonita Bays seven Naples-area communities. Now there are only two planned communities that remain part of Bonita Bay Group: Verandah and Sandoval. The company also owns two marinas, 15 plush single-family lots in the original village known as Bonita Bay, and sizeable acreage, undeveloped and unimproved, here and there. Theres land on Burnt Store Road in Charlotte County, on the Caloosahatchee River in Hendry County, and land that was once owned by the city of Fort Myers, near the old Eastwood Golf Course. Sandoval, in Cape Coral, probably reflects something of the companys future, Mr. Lucas says not a golf community, and not as pretentious as previous Bonita Bay endeavors, including Verandah. Ms. Matte, the public relations spokeswoman, refers to it as Bonita Bay light. But Sandoval is also Bonita Bay successful. Of the 1,523 planned homes, 872 or 57 percent are sold, she says. Not only that, but in Cape Coral as a whole, 36 of the 61 permits issued for new construction in the first quarter this year were at Sandoval. At Verandah, meanwhile (with 1,648 planned homes and 865 sold, says Ms. Matte) ev erything appears as it once DEVELOPERFrom page A1Brian Lucas, vice chairman of the Bonita Bay Group, offers his explanation of a sometimes rancorous fight between the company and members of its private clubs who sought a return of their membership down payments in 30 days, as the company originally promised. Bonita Bay still faces several lawsuits from club members, and one brought by the state attorney general for fraud. Mr. Lucas: The dispute is difficult to explain out of context. At its core, its a contract dispute. The attorney general has tried to morph these (other accusations of fraud) into the contract dispute. But to believe we committed fraud, you have to believe that back in 1987 the company forsaw the events in November of 2008, and planned to change the program. The context leading to our decision to do that, was this: In 2004 and we had good years. But all through the hurricanes in 2005 our sales stopped. So, going into 2006 we have no cash flow. In 2007, no cash flow. In 2008, no cash flow. This is an enterprise built for cash flow. In September of 2008, the stock market crashed, Lehman Brothers failed, and so on. So now were three-ish years into minimal or negligible cash flow. Were starting to see redemption requests at the clubs at above normal rates. But we kept honoring them. As we got close to season and there were no sales, all this time we kept reducing our (employee) head count. On Nov. 7, 2008, we made the decision. If we hadnt, we would have been in default of loans, in violation of our bank covenants, and our creditors would have swooped down. So the effort to suspend the policy gave us some breathing room. At the time, 85 percent of club members went on to join the new clubs (owned by members). We sat down with each club, separately, and said, were working with your membership group. We, the senior executives at Bonita Bay Group, went to each committee many times. And we came up with a successful plan. But the bank said, Sorry guys, these are unsecured creditors, you cant do it. In the end, we did the best we could for as long and for as many people as we could. This was the way the documents worked from day one. You pay a deposit on your number say $50,000 and that deposit becomes a down payment on the new club. Not only did the deposit become an equity, but you were paid an additional amount. Ms. Matte: In return, the company is building amenities. Mr. Lucas: Where did the deposits go? To build infrastructure. If you design any club, you plan to break even at 80 to 90 percent (membership). Until then, you subsidize the club. And all the deposits dont equal the amount of investment and operating costs. So I lose money. Now, if you join, theres no longer a 30-day policy. Now, its fee-based instead of deposit-based. Now, you pay your $50,000 or $60,000 and thats gone. Now, for folks who had the 30-day return on a deposit, its three in, one out. (They can leave when three new members join).

MarineMax-Naples did at any Bonita Bay community: beautifully landscaped with native vegetation and plush, artfully designed amenities, a word used to describe restaurants, clubhouses, golf facilities, fitness clubs, walking or biking trails and whatnot. New members are joining the club. Million-dollar homes still flank the elaborate greens. (One of those golf courses was designed by Jack Nicholas, who appeared for the opening with his son, Jack II, as Ms. Matte referred to him.) Neighborhoods of smaller homes or condominiums, some of them rented out now, create clean flanking vistas seemingly bejeweled with ponds or widely embraced by woodlands. Mr. Lucas, who lives in Estero, appears right at home in this setting.Pedigree for successA golfer himself and a graduate of Stetson University with a degree in entrepreneurial management, he acquired some six years experience in Tampa as an employee of Accenture, a management consulting company, before returning home to the family business, where he is now the seasoned vice chairman of the Bonita Bay Group. Even without that experience, his pedigree is pure. Mr. Lucas is the father of young children who attend his own school-days alma mater in Lee County (Canterbury School), where he spent the second half of his youth. High-end development and bold entrepreneurial enterprise run in his blood. His father, David Lucas, is now a mid-60s company chairman who oversaw two decades of expansion before stepping mostly offstage. The senior Mr. Lucas offers his stamp-of-approval for his son, Brian, this way: We have had our ups and downs over the past 25 years, but when I look at the whole story, I am proud. I look forward to what we will do under Brians leadership. We have a tradition of excellence in community engagement as well as development, and I am sure that these traits will continue with him at the helm. And his grandfather, David Shakarian, is characterized by Mr. Lucas as an Armenian immigrant who opened a yogurt shop in Pittsburgh, Pa., that ultimately became the GNC vitamin pill company. Mr. Shakarian moved to Southwest Florida to establish the new development company he envisioned, but died of cancer only four months before the January 1985 ground-breaking of the companys first golf community, Bonita Bay, in Bonita Springs. At the time, Mr. Lucass father, David a graduate of Purdue University with an MBA from Harvard University had left a womens fashion retail business in Dallas to move the family to the Gulf Coast, and take the reins of Bonita Bay. Mr. Lucas was 11 years old, the oldest of three, and he grew up breathing the air of opulent development. It was (often) dinner conversation, but I didnt grasp the enormity of it, he recalls. Then once I got into high school I started thinking, This is pretty cool. You develop a sense of it, an affinity for it. Now, his affinity is a natural fit for the reality of his position: not just company vice chairman, but point man and chief spokesman. Only the future will tell how well he can accommodate himself to that role. Ms. Wyss adds. And in too many cases, First Books are the only books in their homes, other than perhaps a telephone book or a Bible. Dependent upon the level of financial support First Book receives from individual donors, grantors and foundations, the goal is to give each child from a low-income family in Collier County in pre-K through first grade up to 10 books during the course of the school year. Thats a book a month from September through June for approximately 4,500 children. Once a month, books are distributed in schools where the majority of children come from families who live at or below the federal poverty level (Title I schools). A national organization with 175 chapters throughout the United States, First Book has distributed more than 80 million books since its founding. Because of First Book nationals partnerships with publishers such as Random House and Harcourt Brace, the Collier County chapter is able to obtain first-quality new books at a fraction of their retail price. Thus, every dollar raised goes a long way. First Book-Collier County stretches its dollars even further because it is an all-volunteer organization, with neither payroll nor office space requirements. Warehouse space for First Book-Collier County is donated by NCH Healthcare System. In addition to Ms. Wyss, the board of directors of First Book-Collier County includes Donna Eskra, Dottie Gerrity, Jinny Johnson, Nora Kolmer, Peggy Lavigne, co-founder Ilene Leff, Mary Polizzotto, Debby Shafer, Jen Walker, Emily Watt and Sallie Williams. The First Book-Collier County Fund is a fund of the Community Foundation of Collier County. A donation of $500 provides 10 new books (one each month of the school year) to every disadvantaged child in an entire pre-K, kindergarten or first-grade classroom.

Henri Bergson (1859-1941), French philosopher The Old Naples Waterfront Association has welcomed the Nina and Pinta replica ships to Tin City, where they will remain docked until sailing on their way early Sunday morning, April 10. While reviewing photos of the ships arriving in our port city (which was not a pleasant day to be out on the water), I couldnt help but wonder what the Calusa must have thought at the sight of Columbus original Nina and Pinta plying the waters toward the coast of Florida hundreds of years ago. The Calusa lived on the sandy shores of the coast of southwest Florida, their population peaking at approximately 50,000 before the tribe died out in the late 1700s. Their demise can be attributed to a combination of raids by enemy Indian tribes and diseases contracted from Spanish and French explorers. It seemed it was the pot calling the kettle black when Spanish explorers in the 1500s called these tall, well-built, longhaired people fierce and war-like, as it was the Europeans who were aggressively attempting to take the Calusa as slaves and lay claim to the land the Indians had long called home.In 1896 on Marco Island, long after the last Calusa left for Cuba, archaeologist Frank Hamilton Cushing, head of the Pepper-Hearst Expedition, found artifacts indicating that the Calusa might have inhabited Southwest Florida as early as 1450 B.C. Among the artifacts were masks and tools that revealed the artistic and spiritual elements of the Calusa culture. These treasures reinforced the belief that the areas abundant natural resources had allowed the Calusa to develop a greater social and political complexity than what existed in most hunter/ gatherer cultures. Widely regarded as some of the finest prehistoric North America, the artifacts that survived Mr. Cushings expedition (sadly, the masks disintegrated) are housed at the University of Pennsylv ania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution, and the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida. The original site of the find on Marco Island is now covered by a housing subdivision. In 1995, the Marco Island Chapter of the Collier County Historical Society, the same society that built the Collier County Museum and purchased Palm Cottage, began plans to look at an undeveloped portion of a Key Marco housing development and commissioned an archeological dig for the salvage project. Under the supervision of archaeologists Randolph Widmer and Rebecca Storey, the dig was to add more context to the original site that had been excavated by Mr. Cushing. Their analysis revealed 55 layers of shell and sand mixture as well as numerous post holes presumed to have been for pilings on which structures were built.While most of the ancient Calusa masks did not survive the Cushing expedition, drawings of them did (artists often accompanied explorers in those days to document findings). We also have topographical maps of Key Marco indicating the Calusa water channels and ceremonial mounds, as well as drawings showing the Calusa-built shell ridge (southwest of Key Marco along Collier Bay) that eventually became the base for the original road to Old Marco. Well never see the Calusa masks that disintegrated, but we can be thankful for the drawings that exist. Because of those drawings, replicas of the masks will be on display at Naples Backyard History Heritage Trail Museum, 436 Bayfront Place, from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 9. Dick Jay, a folk artist from Plantation, Fla., who made the masts, will also be on hand.So after you visit the Nina and Pinta, walk north in front of Pinchers Crab Shack under the Gordon River Underpass behind Bayfront Inn over to Bayfront Place. Entrance to the museum is free. As you walk under the underpass, imagine that underneath your feet are shells left by the Calusa (thats the truth), and then imagine the renovation that is slated to begin in September along the historic Naples waterfront. Its something all of us in the Old Naples Waterfront Association eagerly anticipate, and you should, too.

Shell Points Life Enrichment Series offers the opportunity to discover new things about yourself and the world you live in. Concerts, presentations, lectures, shows, special events, and more! The Holocaust Museum and Education Center of Southwest Florida has partnered with Florida Gulf Coast University to develop programs in museum studies at the university. A gift of $60,000 from Charles Dauray and the College of Life Foundation will help launch the initial phase of the program, which will consist of a museum studies minor at FGCU. The development of the museum studies program is an outgrowth of the expanded relationship with the Holocaust Museum, says Donna Henry, dean of FGCUs College of Arts and Sciences. The museum has offered the use of its facility, collections and programs for the museum studies minor and has expressed interest in housing its correspondence collections in the FGCU library archives. Looking to the future, FGCU envisions advanced structured internships in area museums, carefully matching students interests with museums needs. Naturally, the Holocaust will not be the principal focus of Museum Studies at FGCU, says John Cox, assistant professor of history and director of FGCUs Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Human Rights Studies. But it is gratifying that this new program helps to consolidate our partnership with the local Holocaust museum, he adds. We are honored to have been on the ground floor of this exciting new program.

When Joe and Angie Valentini set up Helps Outreach in a spare bedroom of their home back in 1999, their mission was singular: to provide food, clothing and basic household necessities along with kindness and moral support to individuals and families struggling through the hardest of times. Twelve years later, Helps Outreach still operates with no paid staff members or government support and on a bare-bones budget, but the Valentinis hardly do it alone. They have a legion of volunteers and a bright, spacious headquarters in the industrial park on J&C Boulevard in North Naples. Although clients receive help throughout the year, the Valentinis and other volunteers makes special efforts to provide for the less fortunate around holidays and at back-to-school time. At Easter they will make baskets for children and provide turkey dinners to families. According to the Valentinis, last year Helps Outreach helped more than 2,500 people every month and gave away more than $800,000 in food, clothing, furniture, appliances and services. Donations to the Christian charity come from area churches, individuals and businesses. The most urgent needs right now are for food, diapers and funds to help keep daily operations going. Food is a very pressing need, says Mrs. Valentine. There are so many people who simply dont have enough to eat. We have a pantry stocked with canned food, non-perishables, bread and frozen food, but lately, no matter how much we have, its never enough for everyone. Chris Bent is one of Helps Outreachs best friends and supporters. The devotion and humility with which the volunteers serve is wonderful, he says. They are a small organization with a completely volunteer staff, and Im amazed at all they are able to accomplish. It just shows what someone can do when their heart is in the right place.

All are welcome to take part in the time of fellowship and education. Rabbi Edward Maline and cantorial solist Hari Jacobsen will lead the reading of the Haggadah, and each table will be set with the traditional holiday food and drink, from the matzah and bitter herbs to the roasted lamb bone, charoset and wine. Chairman of this years seder is Mary Pinto. It truly is an honor and a mitzvah for me to be the chairperson of this important event that is all about new beginnings and freedom, Ms. Pinto says. The meaning of this holiday runs deep, as my family suffered under the tyranny of the Nazi regime. Ms. Pinto recalls asking about her grandmothers friends who had numbers on their arms and wondering as a child why she didnt have numbers on her own arms. Tradition means a lot, she says, and adds, Freedom means everything. That is why I was in the military and fought for this country so that we can all celebrate and pray as we see fit, and not have to ask the question, Why dont we have numbers on our arms? Cost of the JCMI seder is $45 for adult members of the congregation and $15 for children ages 4-12; nonmembers pay $55 for adults and $20 for children. For reservations and more information, call 642-0800 prior to April 14. Jewish Congregation of Marco Island welcomes all to traditional sederWith the exception of Passover on April 18, bingo takes place every Monday evening through May 2 at the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island.

PAGE 29 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA30 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 HEALTHY LIVINGor just a headache? Is it a migraine, CBS correspondent Serene Branson experienced one of the worst nights of her life during her post-Grammy Awards report earlier this year. On live TV, she slurred her speech and garbled her language as many viewers watched in horror, believing she was suffering from a stroke. Later, the public found out that she was enduring a migraine. James Faremouth, D.O., lead physician of Millennium Physician Group Walk-In Medical Clinic, says seizurelike symptoms such as Ms. Bransons, along with blurred vision, nausea, auras and sensitivity to light, all are common symptoms of complex migraines. It can sometimes be challenging for a person to distinguish between a headache and a migraine, Dr. Faremouth says.Its time to see the doctor when its the worst headache of your life and the headache stays for a long time, he says. I tell my patients if you feel like you are going to die, then go to the emergency department; if not, come into the clinic. In addition to helping provide relief with a prescription for the pain, Dr. Faremouth offers osteopathic manipulation, the process of applying manual pressure to relieve pain throughout the musculoskeletal system, including soft tissues and joints outside the spine. Such manipulation can help with migraines that are more in the neck, he says. For those who have been diagnosed with migraine aphasia or chronic migraines, taking the prescribed medication is essential before the migraine becomes full blown. If you have not been diagnosed and do not have a prescription for migraines, over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol or Advil are good choices to alleviate the pain, and an anti-nausea medication can help to block the nauseating feeling caused by the pain of the migraine. Dr. Faremouth also suggests lying down in a dark room with a cold compress. Staying hydrated is also important, he adds. In some people, caffeine in a cup of coffee or a glass of soda can help. Knowing what causes migraines can help prevent painful moments throughout your lifetime. Stress, anxiety and even smells can often trigger a migraine, he says, although in most cases, The reason for migraines is that they are hereditary. This week I want to elaborate on three recent things that have significance to our community and NCH:1 A front-page headline last week in the Naples Daily News announced Collier Still No. 1 in Health Rankings. I believe this shows that where you live does matter to your health. The newest rankings reconfirm how fortunate we all are to live in a great place; specifically, in the county that has the best health o utcomes of all 67 counties in Florida. I offer three perspectives on this excellent news. As a physician, I tend to think about all the work we still have to do in promoting better nutrition, fighting obesity, encouraging smoking cessation, just to name a few. I also tend to take pride in such milestones as the better-than-state-average infant birth weight statistics. At our most recent Doctors Day, I discussed this with Dr. Wally McLean, one of the original obstetricians responsible more than 11 years ago for organizing a foundation to care for mothers and infants who were previously uninsured. Today, most have Medicaid coverage, which helps with prenatal care, ultrasounds and everything else necessary to point to a good outcome for all concerned. Wally, too, was justifiably proud. As a hospital leader, I applaud the efforts of the 3,740 people at NCH who are committed to continuing to improve health quality for the well being of everyone in Southwest Florida. I also applaud the fine efforts of our competitors here in Collier County. And as a community member, I appreciate the efforts of our many social service agencies and health care colleagues who make a difference. Last fall, we convened more than 100 representatives of the major organizations in town to discuss areas needing improvement. Thirteen working groups were formed and reported back to Dr. Joan Colfer of the Collier County Health Department. One example of the synergy created by this collaborative is the Safe and Healthy Childrens Coalition of Collier County, which has formed a working plan to prevent drowning among preschoolers. NCH is the lead partner of this collaborative of 31 agencies and nonprofit organizations. Dr. Tidd Vedder, our chairman of pediatrics, R.N. Jayme Roberts, assistant director of the Emergency Department; Pat Read, director of Womens and Childrens Services; and Jim Martin, vice president of the NCH Foundation, are our representatives on this initiative. Were all in health care together in Collier County, and it shows in our performance. 2 NCH sold a remarkable $102 million of bonds in two days this past week to help insure the financial future of NCH and, in turn, the well being of our community for decades to come. I heard from the executive director of Morgan Stanley, who assisted with this complex transaction, that: You have an exceptionally capable finance team Vicki Orr, Noble Arrington and Jerry Markham were terrific throughout the process. Their dedication to getting the credit analysts up to speed in the last few days was instrumental to todays pricing. They should make you feel very confident and happy. Indeed, our financial team served NCH and the community with distinction.3 We also learned last week that our colleagues who had supported an outside union organizing effort at NCH had decided to drop these efforts, citing increased management attention to communication and shared governance among their reasons for doing so. I can tell our nurses and all our colleagues that management is, indeed, committed to listening to you and working to make our hospital better for all.The closing sentence in the memo from these nurses read: Lets make NCH the very best hospital it can be, because This is our hospital too! To which, I can only say: I could not agree more. Thank you.

For a $100 donation, guests can get a leg up on the fun until from 4-6 p.m. at the Third Street South restaurant. All proceeds will help keep the dog park free for all in the community to enjoy. The park at the corner of Central Avenue and Goodlette Frank Road is open from dawn to dusk. As a part of gaining the citys approval for the facility, the Naples Dog Park committee must raise $15,000 per year to offset maintenance costs; otherwise, user fees will be imposed. Here are the artists statements about their works: 1. Well, Stanley, This Is Another Nice Mess You Got Us Into, by Phil Fisher: Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were, to me, the funniest comedy duo when I was a very young child Having dogs make a mess of them just seemed appropro. Painting on a different surface and shape was a challenge. Im an impressionist landscape painter, so this gives people a one-of-a-kind work of art from me. I am happy to be part of such a great community cause for our dog friends. 2. Mind Your Manner, by Popo Flanigan: The definition of the word manner is the way of behaving toward others. I chose to paint this assignment in my colorful, whimsical style and add the words Mind your manner to remind pets and their owners to behave properly in their new and very special Central Bark. There are eight caps of like size on the top representing all different colors, shapes and sizes of pets discovering each other and making new friends in a mannerly fashion. 3. Pissed Off, by Jacquee Krause: The first idea that came to mind was, This is for a dog park, and what do dogs like to do with fire hydrants? Its obvious without explanation. So then I thought, What else would a dog like to relieve himself on? Trees? Bushes? Mailboxes? Then my twisted sense of humor thought, Cats! (at least thats what Captain, my Jack Russell, would want to do). 4. K-9 Network, by Michele Kortbawi Wilk: Nothing goes better with a fire hydrant than a dog. As far as the dog is concerned, using the vertical surface of a fire hydrant serves them in their very important job of networking with other dogs. I sculpted this dog with galvanized metal and aluminum.

Some options include: The entire house, free-roam: Many older rabbits are past their woodworkchewing baby stages. These bunnies have earned their owners trust and roam the house freely. However, all rooms must be rabbit-proofed, to protect your bunny and your valuables. That means electric cords, computer wires, toxic house plants, rubber bands, remote controls and any treasured wooden furniture must be kept out of reach. One or two rooms, free-roam: Perhaps the kitchen and dining room are open to the bunny, or the family room and the bathroom. Baby gates keep him from entering other rooms when you are not able to supervise. The rabbit will choose favorite spots to snooze, chew a hay cube or daydream. Part of a room, enclosed in an exercise pen: Exercise pens, also called play yards, are a convenient way to keep rabbits confined to a specific area. Available in different heights, these pens feature hinged panels that can be arranged in varying shapes or stretched across the room to divide it. Some rabbits climb or jump out, so owners clip a sheet to the pen to make a roof that keeps bunny safely inside. A twoor three-story bunny condo: If you cant build wide ... build high! Give your rabbit a multilevel condo and hell be able to not only enjoy his perch, but also have plenty of space for all of his toys and supplies. Many owners build their own condos, using wire-frame storage cube sets from building supply stores. Easy directions can be found online; search for bunny condo. Make sure that its tall enough inside for him to stand up on his hind legs and stretch. A large dog crate: Paired with an exercise pen, a large dog crate can make a great bunny house. The door on the crate swings wide open, giving you easy access for cleaning. Crates allow space for the litter box, bowls and have ample head room. Cover the top with a blanket or towel. This gives bunnys sensitive eyes some protection from overhead lights and provides a nice burrow feeling. A cage: Standard animal cages are too cramped to accommodate a large litter box, hay, digging box, bowls and toys so go bigger! Avoid cages with doors that open on the roof. Bunnies dont like to be pulled up out of their houses. Let your rabbit enter and exit his cage on his own. Choose a cage that rests on the floor (not up on legs), with a large door on the side or front. Whatever house you choose, your bunny will feel more confident about interacting with you if he can easily get back to home base to use the litter box or take a hay break. After all, every rabbit needs his own space to retreat and relax. Isnt that what home is all about? Mary Cvetan is a member of the Pet Connection advisory team and the co-founder of the Pittsburgh House Rabbit Club.Want a happy house rabbit? Make sure your bunnys digs are suitable. The best indoor spaces for rabbits are both safe and stimulating. They keep your bunny out of trouble when you are away from home, but give him the space to dig, chew, play, stretch, snooze or just sit and think. The right housing has room for a large litter box, a generous stack of hay, a water crock, toys to chew and toss, and a towel to arrange and rearrange. A surprising musthave: a cardboard digging box, double or triple the size of your bunny.

Im not going to let you go, angel. Officer William Thomas Osmanski People say that loves a game, a game you just cant win....Put your head on my shoulder. Paul Anka This is your Captain and we are going down. We are all going down together. Laurie AndersonOn March 28, 20 miles west of Tampa in Plant City, Fla., 47-year-old Carla Chapman was walking around her back yard, cell phone in her pocket. Suddenly the ground under her feet caved in.A sinkhole 24 inches in diameter and several feet deep opened. She fell in, and found herself being sucked into the earth, compressed. Her cell phone emergency call was answered by Officer William Thomas Osmanski, who held onto her during the rescue. That was now. And this is then: Persephone is out and about, picking flowers. Pluto sees her, and wills more flowers to grow out of the earth. She is delighted by them. And with the pulling of this one flower, that earth under her opens. She falls into the underworld, to Plutos delight. Its all Greek, really. This movement toward unclosedness, unconcealedness, disclosure. And the movement moves into the 17th century Baroque, captured in marble by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. In his one sculpture, Rape of Proserpine, three views show three moments. From the left, Pluto grasps Persephone. He captures her with fingers that sink into her thighs. From the front, he seems to hold her like a trophy, triumphant. From the right, there are her tears and blowing hair. And there is Cerberus, the three-headed hound, guard of Hades, barking in madness and power and grief. Hercules final labor is the capture of Cerberus. He was successful, but the king who demanded this capture was not enraptured by the hound. So he was sent back into underworld hiding. Freud, would-be archeologist, digs in the Victorian underworld around phantasmagorical pots of rats gnawing through anuses, scary horses and wolves, and primal scene paralysis. He wins the Goethe prize, a writers award, named after the author of The Sorrows of Young Werther, a text that inspires many youth to suicide. But this pirate writer revels in Freuds 1925 little essay, A Note Upon the Mystic Writing Pad. The mystic writing pad is a childs toy that consists of a protective sheet of clear plastic over thin waxed paper. This is mounted onto a wax tablet. A stylus is used to write on the plastic sheet. The resultant indentation in the wax appears through the plastic sheet as a dark trace in the waxed paper. The sheets can be lifted, making the marks invisible although still present, always indented in the wax tablet. We may think of the post-modern Etch-A-Sketch. Both these toys are infinitely receptive to new stories. But the mystic writing pad is more: It holds in the under-wax trace, legible in suitable lights, all the stories recorded on it. And Freud sees the appearance and disappearance of the writing like the flickering-up and passing-away of consciousness in the process of perception. Many would say that Carla was rescued from the dark under. Or that Persephone is free as she roams over during her springs and summers. Many might say that this movement up and out is what Freud longs for as he creates to make unconscious conscious. Freud ends his essay writing of two hands, one writing and one lifting to erase. And of seeing in the waxen record only what has already been written. Who looks at the Bernini from the rear?

Those were the words that many seasonal residents used to utter as they prepared to move back north after spending the winter in Southwest Florida. For years, the timehonored tradition was that fulltime residents would occasionally check on the homes of their seasonal neighbors. And the results often were disastrous. The neighbors might have been well-meaning, but they were busy and checks were random and infrequent. Moreover, many did not know what to look for or what to do if they encountered a problem. As a result, the business of professional home watchers has become a flourishing enterprise in the area. Many a friendship has been ruined by something happening to a house while the owner is away, says Bob Myers of Home Watch Group of SWFL, which is based in Fort Myers and oversees some 215 homes in Collier, Charlotte and Lee counties.

Why would you buy a house with all those responsibilities? Youre only down here for three months. This friendly advice was oft given by a Florida local or seasoned snowbird in years prior to 2007. It has now morphed into: get a condo but do a heck of a lot of homework first and then zero in on only the strongest of condo developments. Across the country there are pockets of residential real estate strength. In Florida, there are some such pockets too. For instance, (Fort Lauderdales little secret: Condo market is quite healthy Miami Herald, March 28, 2011) And even in relatively weak markets such as Miami and Southwest Florida, there are sections of town and/or developments that are uncharacteristically strong, as in few foreclosures or delinquent owners and, in these cases, Just buy a condo probably rings true.But outside of the strongest housing markets and financially strongest locations/ developments, there are a multitude of major cities where buying a condo is tantamount to walking among land mines. (Lenders steer clear of blackballed condo buildings, Chicago Tribune, March 8, 2011)Why? Not just the number of residential foreclosures but, importantly, their unique effects on condo unit owners who have found themselves paying additional amounts in condo fees in order to cover their neighbors unpaid assessments. Landscaping, water, pool maintenance, and reserves for repair still have to be paid even if it means a greater allocation of cost to paying members at least temporarily. The bad news can get a lot worse, or so says Bob Meisner, an expert in condo issues who dwells in Naples but has a large practice out of state. Although statutes are state-specific and although market conditions vary by locale, there are some generalities that can serve as a basis for critical questions. Here is Meisners skinny on this complicated subject. Foreclosures came on strong starting in 2007. The banks didnt have a huge inventory of properties that were in default. So the banks proceeded to foreclose as it seemed to them that prices and their attendant secured interests could recover. But, by 2010, the banks figured that foreclosure actually was not so good for them. They wanted people to stay in the home or condo and pay the electric, pay the water, pay the taxes, pay the landscaping and pay the condo or homeowner fees. They knew that they were now looking at a long time before a foreclosed property could sellat a decent price or at any price, Meisner says. If you talk to bankers, such is not the case. They argue that any non-performing mortgage is a hit on their balance sheets capital and that they prefer to take the loss and move on to greener loans. From their perspective, federal and state laws thwart removal of the owner from a property in foreclosure and delay the foreclosure process. Whatever the reasoning behind the delay in foreclosure, the effect an expensive mess is still felt by the condo association. From the associations viewpoint, how long can this problem remain unresolved? There is a three-year window for property taxes in Florida; the banks can be current or let the taxes accrue with penalties. It can be argued that within that three-year window, there is little incentive for the banks to foreclose because they then have to pay condo assessments in arrears per state specific statute and pay assessments prospectively until the unit is ultimately sold. These problems are generally not true with a single-family home; home maintenance costs are paid by the bank just to maintain the value of the home. No one else is on the hook to pay the single familys bills for water, pool, landscape, exterior insurance, etc. What to do? There are lawyers, like Meisner, who specialize in condos. The aggressive ones retained by troubled associations are forcing the banks to close and accept responsibility for the units; they are pushing through the labyrinth of federal and other hurdles that delay foreclosures. Meisner finds that there are often a host of condo issues such as developers abandoning projects with unsold lots; half-built units; or failure to complete the common areas. So what is Meisners advice to a prospective buyer? Of course he says to read his book, Condo Living: A Survival Guide for Buying, Owning and Selling a Condo. A short form version is his list of dos and donts at But his advice for the Florida condo associations facing sticky, yucky and complicated legal issues is to get an aggressive legal advocate who can think outside the box; the same ol, same ol routines do not suffice or no longer apply. Some of Meisners maneuvers might have application in Florida and other states. In cases where the bank is not paying the condo fees, the associations counsel needs to track the mortgage. Mortgages get sold or assigned and this opens windows of opportunity. He has successfully argued in Michigan court to the associations benefit that a new or successor mortgagor is secondary to the associations lien. How so? He argued that the first mortgagees senior lien position does not transfer to a second holder of the mortgage. This has resulted in the association recouping all of its assessments, costs and attorney fees. Meisner is also pursuing legal claims that the bank is refusing to exercise their right of foreclosure for self-serving reasons. By not exercising this right, the banks interest in the unit is being protected by the association; the bank gets a benefit of maintenance but isnt paying for it. In short, there are new realities in buying condos anywhere. Beyond pricing, terms, financing, etc., the quality of your investment will depend in part on the extent of your upfront investigation and help from experienced legal counsel.

PAGE 41 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 THE MOTLEY FOOL Most of us have heard the word probate, but many people dont understand what it really is. Its important for you to understand it, though, to help in your estate planning. Probate is the legal process of administering an estate once someone dies. The process includes several parts. First, it must be determined that the will is valid. If you dont have a will, the probate court will have the remaining assets distributed according to the rules of the state. Assuming that theres a valid will, the probate process will include making an inventory of the deceaseds property and appraising its value. It will see that debts are repaid and taxes paid. Whats left will be distributed to inheritors, according to the terms of the will, with title and ownership being formally transferred. If this sounds like a complicated hassle, it often is. It can be costly, too, involving lots of paperwork and fees to lawyers, accountants, appraisers and executors, as well as Probate 101 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. Indexes Galore Q What are the other major stock indexes, besides the Standard & Poors 500? M.J., Flagstaff, Ariz.A The most famous index is the Dow Jones Industrial Average (the Dow), which includes 30 American giants, such as ExxonMobil, General Electric, Home Depot and Verizon. The S&P 500 also focuses on large companies, including 500 of Americas leading corporations. Its components account for 75 percent of the total market value of the U.S. stock market. These two indexes are often viewed as proxies for the overall U.S. economy. Then theres the Russell 3000 Index, which includes 3,000 of the largest U.S. companies based on market capitalization (current share price multiplied by number of shares outstanding). These 3,000 constitute about 98 percent of the U.S. markets value. For a measure of small-cap companies, look to the Russell 2000. Its composed of the 2,000 smallest companies in the Russell 3000.The Dow Jones Wilshire 5000 is just about the broadest index of American companies, including almost every publicly traded company. For broad international coverage, the Vanguard Total International Stock index represents about 98 percent of the non-U.S. world stock market.There are indexes for lots of broad or narrow international regions. Other indexes address sectors such as utilities, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, the Internet, and shoe horns. (Just kidding about shoe horns.) Learn more at www. What are convertibles in investing?

Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrichcourt costs. All that money would otherwise have gone to beneficiaries. Probate can eat up 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of the estate. So with an estate worth $200,000, probate might take $10,000 to $20,000, a sizable chunk. Also, property remains in a kind of limbo while in probate and that can last months or even years. And finally, the probate process is public, so anyone who wants to know your business will likely be able to find out. That said, probate does have some advantages. For example, it tends to be a methodical and unbiased system, since a judge oversees it. Still, for most people, its downside overshadows the upside, so its best avoided. And, it can be avoided (such as via a living trust, for example), if you learn more about it and take some action.

My dumbest investment decision was selling my shares of Coca-Cola in order to buy shares of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Lehman Brothers. Sigh. H.U., onlineThe Fool Responds: That was certainly a regrettable move. All investors, including the best, make occasional mistakes. Still, you might have avoided this one had you considered a few things. For starters, if you were parking much of your money in those three stocks, you were putting a lot of faith in just one sector, financial services. Thats not very diversified. Some well-regarded mutual fund managers got whacked by that mistake, too. Next, you might have looked at what was going on in the U.S. with mortgages. It was no secret that many people were buying homes they could barely afford, and that lenders were making it extra-easy to get a mortgage. While many people jumped on the wagon to profit from this, assuming that housing prices would keep rising, others correctly suspected that it would end badly. The beauty of Coca-Cola is its dependability. People will always be thirsty, and most can afford a simple drink. The Motley Fool TakeMeet EnerNOC (Nasdaq: ENOC).

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 BUSINESS B7 a timely manner, it certainly can create ill feelings with a friend or neighbor, agrees Steve Braveman who, along with Paul Patro and their wives, runs BeaSafe Home Watch Service in Estero. But selecting a reputable service is not always easy, says Diane Westphal, who founded Your Home Watch Professionals in Naples in 2005. Think about this: You are turning the keys to your home over to someone, she says. That is a responsibility that should never be taken lightly. Complicating the selection process is that there are no specific licensing requirements in Florida for home watching. But, of course, the home watcher should hold some sort of business license. Whoever you select absolutely should be a licensed business that is insured and bonded, says Ms. Westphal, who is actively leading a drive to impose stricter standards on the industry. Ms. Westphal conducts seminars called Who Has My Keys to inform the public and real estate professionals about what to demand from a home watcher. Simply using Google or a telephone directory is a dangerous way to select a watcher, she says. Ask around among friends and neighbors, and real estate professionals are another good source when it comes to finding an honest and dependable watch service. Most home watchers charge by the visit. Charges can vary from around $40 a visit to nearly $70, depending on the size of the property and whether it is a condo or a detached home. Ms. Westphal says if a service offers a rock-bottom rate lets say $15 a visit it could be a tipoff that it is neither insured nor bonded. We dont do monthly visits, says Mr. Myers, whose firm checks either weekly or twice a month. So much can go wrong in a month, and if you wait that long to uncover it, it can be an absolute disaster. Mr. Braveman concurs, and his service offers only bi-weekly or weekly options. Ms. Westphal says the frequency of inspection is crucial. Her firm offers options of seven, 10 or 14 days, and she has horror stories of what can happen when the time between checks is any longer. She knows of one instance in Naples where a home owner did not employ a service. There was a minor air conditioning malfunction, which if addressed early could have been repaired at minimal expense. But no one noted the problem, and this relatively insignificant problem led to extreme humidity within the home, which, in turn, resulted in a severe mold problem that developed over a few days. The final cost to the homeowner exceeded $30,000. Checking once a month is simply not going to do the job, says Mr. Myers. Mold and mildew alone can become a major disaster in much less time than that. Ms. Westphal says her service detects problems in approximately 30 percent of the residences it watches. Because most of these problems are found early, serious (and costly) repairs are rare, she says. The idea that reputable home watchers merely walk through a residence and look for obvious problems is simply not true, says Mr. Braveman. His business, like Ms. Westphals and Mr. Myers, operates from a detailed checklist of potential problems and hazards. They do, of course, look for things like signs of break-in or vandalism, but that is the tip of the iceberg. They also check to make sure that services such as pool maintenance and landscaping are being done according to plan. Other areas that draw attention are possible water leaks, plumbing problems, signs of mold and mildew and even ancillary services such as checking on and starting any motor vehicles that left behind. There are problems specific to owning a home in Florida that are unique to this area, says Mr. Braveman. Because of the weather the heat and humidity it is quite different from owning a home up north, and not everyone realizes this. After every inspection, Mr. Braveman, Mr. Myers and Ms. Westphal say they inform the homeowner of what they have found usually by e-mail. We let them know even if we have found nothing unusual, says Ms. Westphal. Part of what we are offering is peace of mind, says Mr. Braveman. We dont communicate with our clients only when there is a problem. Using a reliable watch service also can result in insurance benefits. In some instances it might lower the rate, and it usually helps to validate claims if a problem takes place. Apart from the more sophisticated aspects of home watching, there are other more elemental reasons for having someone look after a home. Quite often we find that the owners have the lights on or left the front door unlocked and the security system off, says Mr. Myers. Its not that unusual, and its something we all can identify with. Who hasnt gone on a trip and then suddenly thought, Did I turn the oven off?

Among the last art shows of the season in Southwest Florida, the festival presents a select group of 70 fine artists from across the country displaying and selling their jewelry, paintings, sculpture, photographs, hand-blown glass and ceramic pieces and wearable art such as scarves and leather goods. Jewelry is often one of the most popular sellers at art festivals, and the Marco Masters presents some unusual jewelry artists. Anisa Stewart of Fort Myers will show her contemporary and wildlife jewelry collection, inspired by growing up in Southwest Florida and volunteering during high school at the J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island. These influences are easily seen in Ms. Stewarts wave rings and in the one-of-a-kind pieces she creates using sea urchins and other natural materials that wash up on local beaches. Ms. Stewart spent 15 years working with internationally recognized Mark Loren Designs before launching her own line in 2004. She uses the lost wax casting method, carving an original wax model that she then molds, burning out the wax Art festival season wrapping up on MarcoSEE ART, C4 ITS HARD TO TELL WHOS MORE SURprised that Rent is coming to the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre the venue itself or its audience. A modern retelling of Puccinis opera La Boheme, set in New Yorks East Village, the musical isnt exactly typical dinner theater fare at least not for the Broadway Palm. The 1996 award-winning show follows the lives of gays, drag queens, drug addicts and people with HIV/ AIDS. The music is loud and raucous. Susan Johnson, Broadway Palm marketing director and general manager, calls it a rock opera, comparing it to Jesus Christ Superstar or Mama Mia! Were trying to find the younger generation, she says, referring to ages 18-49. She readily acknowledges Rent is as far from what you picture at a dinner theater as you could imagine. But with theater, she adds, You reinvent yourself every six weeks. This is a total overhaul. Its as far out of the box as were going to jump without falling into the Caloosahatchee. Its also one of the last regional productions of the show before it begins to play off-Broadway.

The neighborhood cats stalk each other around stucco corners, through gardens planted with plumbagos. The plumeria have not yet begun to bloom still too dry, too wintry and the cats wind their way through the leafless stalks at night. They send up mournful cries, pitiful sounds that are angry, lonely and lost. We feel it, too. The heavy sleep of winter passes, and we are restless for some new thing, like shoots seeking sunlight from the newly turned earth. My roommate, Adele, is plagued by bodily pains. She is a sensitive soul, quick to manifest deeper worries in physical form. When her workload becomes too heavy to carry, her hip goes out. When an irate colleague wears her down over the course of the day, she catches a cold. In the blustery sweep of spring, her shoulders ache. Some sort of blockage, she calls it. She points to the spot where her Yowling days of spring SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artisHENDERSON At night, the wind blows and blows, and stray cats yowl from the roof...arm joins her body. Some blockage here. And here. She points to her arm, her hand, her fingers. We sit on our porch that fronts a small garden. The sun warms the tiles beneath our feet, and a red hibiscus tree blooms overhead. I tell Adele about an exercise taught to me by a wise friend, where describing a feeling a physical pain, a distressing emotion can alleviate discomfort. Can you tell me about the pain? I ask her. Tight, she says. Constricted. Like Im holding onto something. And the color? Does the pain have a color? Adele reflects. Orange, she says finally. Like the second chakra. She laughs. The second chakra: governor of sexuality and reproductive organs. I guess my second chakra must be blocked, she says. At night, the wind blows and blows, and stray cats yowl from the roof. A friend, Jules, passes in the evening. He prowls around the house and asks if we have any coffee. He is restless, like us. Adele makes a pot, and I bring out the good chocolate. We flatter Jules and attend to him, and he shines his attention like a beacon on the dark porch, wavering between the two of us. He stays after we have finished the pot of coffee, after Adele and I have washed the cups and wiped the table. He curls up on a side chair with a magazine, throwing his unsettling masculine presence into our already unsettled household.March fades toward April. The moon wanes, disappearing into a crescent. Adele and I research the gestation period of cats. We figure we will see a new litter by the end of May.She comes home late one night and waves a dismissive hand over her evening. Dinner with Jules, she says. For work. She moves through whats left of the week in a sated glow. The restlessness goes out of her. The pain in her shoulder fades away. The bright edge of spring turns toward the full roundness of summer, and outside the wind has stopped howling. a a w in g m as into e tt l e d t o ward n wanes, o a cresr esearc h riod o f w e will b y th e o me n d se r h e h e d s o f h er w a y e o f o ward ess of utsi d e pp ed

PAGE 74 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 years, and a movie based on the musical was released in 2005. Like the Broadway shows Avenue Q and The 39 Steps, Rent is now going off-Broadway and is slated to open in June.) While Rent might not please those who prefer classic musicals such as The Unsinkable Molly Brown (which just ended its run at the Broadway Palm), it will appeal to a younger audience looking for more relevant fare. The theater tested the water with Hairspray and The Full Monty, both of which brought in new business for the venue. Hairspray garnered 900 new accounts, Ms. Johnson says. And an account, she explains, can mean two tickets or 20. So that could mean 1,800 new customers, or 18,000. And many of those tickets buyers came from south of the theater: Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples. The Full Monty brought in more than 1,000 new accounts, Ms. Johnson says. So we have a ton of new customers. With an eye to building a new generation of patrons, the dinner theater has embraced Rent.New marketing movesWere scared, but we love a challenge, Ms. Johnson says. But, she admits, Everything Ive known about marketing this theater, everything I thought and knew, had to change for Rent. So while theyre running TV ads during Ellen and The Today Show, theyre also running commercials for Rent during episodes of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Vampire Diaries, Jersey Shore, The Real World, Top Chef, Basketball Wives and various geographic incarnations of The Housewives of, among other shows. I have never advertised on any of those shows before, Ms. Johnson says. To market to a younger audience, she had to put herself into the mindset of a 20-year-old, and asked herself, How would I hear about the show? So you hang onto some of the traditional means of marketing a show, but you have to toss a lot of them out of the window and start fresh, she says. And the venue is casting its nets wide. Not only is it marketing to Fort Myers and surrounding cities, but also to Sarasota and Tampa. In another Broadway Palm first, it will post a few videos from the show on YouTube. Were hoping it will go viral, she says. Any production of the show usually contains Rentheads in the audience rabid fans who see the show multiple times, following it from city to city. Many have seen it dozens or scores of times. Were trying to find the Rentheads, Ms. Johnson says. Were going onto craigslist. It starts out, Calling all Rentheads! Weve never done that type of marketing before at Broadway Palm. Ms. Johnson herself has seen the show at least seven times at other venues. I am a secret Renthead, she admits. At one point I said to my assistant, Oh my gosh, I know every word of the show! It is definitely among one of my favorites. When youre in this business, whatever youre producing might not be your personal taste. But this is. And you dont see Rent in Fort Myers very often, she says, pointing out that the last time it was in town it was at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall for a few nights. The Broadway Palm production will run for six weeks. A turbulent historyRent enjoyed a 12-year run on Broadway and won a Pulitzer Prize as well as Tony awards for Best Musical, Best Original Book and Best Score. Its Broadway run was highly lucrative, grossing more than $280 million. Numerous U.S. tours and productions all over the world followed, with Rent playing in cities such as Bangkok, Tokyo, Madrid, Stockholm, Moscow, Oslo, Hong Kong and many others. The musical is not without its own drama, though. Its creator, Jonathan Larson, died on the morning of the first scheduled preview. Its erroneously thought by some that he was gay and died from AIDS. Mr. Larson, was straight, however, and died from an aortic aneurysm. Some felt his tragic demise added to the shows mystique and appeal. His estate was sued by dramaturge Lynn Thomson, who said she had reworked the musical with Mr. Larson during 1995. The suit was settled out of court. Gay author Sarah Schulman wanted to sue Mr. Larsons estate when she noted numerous similarities in characters and plot to her 1990 novel, People in Trouble. Realizing the Larson estate had much deeper pockets, she dropped her case and instead, wrote a book called Stage Struck: Theatre, AIDS and the Marketing of Gay America. According to a review of the book by Linda Rosewood Hooper, Mr. Larsons heirs refused to give Ms. Schulman 2.5 percent of the royalties (which would have amounted to $2.5 million) from Rent. In the last of limited contact she had with the estates lawyers, Ms. Hooper writes, they admitted that though Larson used theme, plot and stock characters and settings of People in Trouble, he did not use her expression of ideas. Some have accused Rent of being confusing, while other dont like the way it depicts gay people. How will Southwest Florida audiences react? Its hard to predict. Weve had a couple of shows that were edgier, but not as edgy as Rent, Ms. Johnson says, naming I Love You, Youre Perfect, Now Change and Jekyll & Hyde. This is in that ballpark, she says, adding that the f-bomb is dropped a few times, and thats never before happened on our stage. But you cant take it out of the show. It has to stay in the piece. Thats a big first for us. Some theatergoers might object to the plots same-gender relationships. So Broadway Palm is marketing to those who will embrace it, advertising in the local gay magazine Splash and marketing at gay bars such as The Office Pub, Tubbys and The Bottom Line, all in Fort Myers. Were trying to branch out, to the best of our ability, Ms. Johnson says. In addition to promotions such as Girls Night Out, in which groups of four will get discounted tickets and drinks called Rentinis, and packages with discounted hotel rates, the theater will offer talkbacks after the Friday performances, beginning April 15. Anyone whos interested can come up on stage after the show, meet the cast and discuss the performance. What a great opportunity if youre a Renthead and really love this production, Ms. Johnson says. But the theater is not changing its focus and wont start offering avantgarde plays year-round, she stresses. Were not changing our image. Were trying to be diverse and true to our season, she says, noting that in addition to Rent, the theater is also offering Church Basement Ladies, Part 2: A Second Helping in its Off-Broadway Palm theater and Charlo ttes Web for children during the daytime. Could you be any more diverse than that? she asks. Shes hearing feedback already from the community, with people saying that this is the one show they want to see at the dinner theater. You have everything from baby boomers who say We cant wait to see it to little old ladies Yesterday we had our first high school student come and buy 10 tickets. Thats what were hoping for, that people who love the show will come out of the woodwork. Were nervous, but very excited. This is a rare opportunity, and were going to enjoy it while we can. Its not everybodys cup of tea, but if you want to see something fun and different, this is the show.

This process allows me to get great detail into the piece, she explains. I believe jewelry should be worn daily and for a lifetime, so when I make a piece, I keep that in mind, making sure it is extremely comfortable and of substantial weight. Her collection has grown to include more than 50 animals from across the world, including dragonflies, African wildlife and all forms of sea life. Her recent infatuation with fishing has turned some of her focus to local sportfish such as snook, tarpon and redfish. The artist describes her pieces as big, bold, funky and fun. On the more delicate side, Kathryn and Loren Bell of Hobe Sound, Fla., create work using found sea glass. The Bells have traveled the world including the east and west coasts of the United States, Spain, Hawaii and Vieques Island in Puerto Rico in search of the natural jewels they use in their pieces. The character, texture and colors of glass in different parts of the world are different, Ms. Bell notes. Some glass is velvety, some has more historical significance and some is quite thick, indicating its age. For example, the Bells found an old amber Clorox bottle shard in Key West that they estimate is between 50 and 95 years old. The couple works as a team, sorting the pieces of their collection and combining them with precious metals to create necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pendants and other limited edition pieces for the true beach lover.

Sadly, this production of Aint Misbehavin is more downtown than uptown. Ms. McCleary seems to be going more for cute than sizzling with her direction and choreography. There were moments in various ensemble numbers where the dance steps really grabbed me, and the show seemed as if it were going to take flight. But then everything would get tame and conventional again, and the performers would rely on gestures to act out the lyrics of the songs, rather than conveying them through the power of their singing. They fared much better when delivering solos or duets, perhaps because especially with the solos they could sit or stand and put across the song to the audience. Carla Stewart hit it out of the ballpark every time she had a solo, whether it was a tender ballad or a belter. And during a duet with Bianca Denis, the two got downright saucy as they urged women to Find out what they like, and how they like it, and let him have it just that way. And in a duet with Christopher Brasfield in That Aint Right, Ms. Denis provided some nice gr owly singing. The two men of the ensemble Steven Rich and Mr. Brasfield are two of the strongest singers in the group. Mr. Richs solos on Im Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter and the novelty song Your Feets Too Big demonstrated that he knew how to put across a song; I only wish there were more moments like this in the show. Sarita Crawford, who rounds out this quintet, has the unfortunate number Yacht Club Swing, where she portrays a woman who cant sing. But she redeems herself in Act II with Keepin Out of Mischief. The ensembles moving Black and Blue number, about living in a white world with black skin, is a heart breaker, exquisite in its harmonies. And by the time the cast began its finale, singing songs written by others that Fats Waller made popular, some of the audience was singing along with Its a Sin to Tell a Lie and Im Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter. I was surprised to see the omission ARTS COMMENTARY The joint isnt quite jumpin at Sanibels Herb Strauss Theater, but it certainly has its moments. Aint Misbehavin, a revue of Fats Waller music of the 0s and s, doesnt hold together as a whole yet, though the cast as an ensemble and as soloists do deliver some highlights. Perhaps it will jell more as the month goes on and the performers get their sea legs and gain more confidence. We can hope. But part of its problem might lie with this productions directors Amy Marie McCleary, who directed and choreographed the show, and Justin Cowan, who provides musical direction and plays piano onstage. The piano is a baby grand, and the male musicians wear black ties. Its very sophisticated and feels a little too proper for Fats Wallers rowdy music, which is sly and suggestive. The lyrics wink at the listener, both as a come-on and as a way of noting that youre in on the jokes. Played properly, this lively, exuberant stride piano music barely stays on just this side of chaos, always threatening to fly off the tracks. Its also roll-around-inthe-mud, down-and-dirty raunchy. Unfortunately, not much of that comes across in this production. During Act II, the cast performs Lounging at the Waldorf, which compares how things are done uptown in Harlem to downtown at the Waldorf, where the white people go. Dont rock they like jazz but in small doses, they sing about downtown, adding, Dont sing loud when you sing at the Waldorf/ Or find somewhere else to play./Uptown jazz aint stiff with propriety/Downtown goes that whiff of society. The three women in the cast stick their noses up in the air, posing with cigarettes in long, slim holders. Later lyrics say: Uptown we get b t r M t nancySTETSON Aint Misbehavin indeed: too proper, too staidof Jitterbug Waltz and The Vipers Song from the show. And, this might be quibbling, but it bothered me every time the performers sang into their fake microphones and then, midway through the song, abandoned them, as if the props no longer mattered. The performance did get better as it went on, with Act II being the stronger of the two. But the show could benefit from more chemistry and spark between the performers, more grittiness and naughtiness. The very competent band outnumbers the cast by two, but at the beginning of the show, when there was just piano, bass and drums, the musicians drowned out the singers sometimes. You couldnt make out all of Fats Wallers clever lyrics or spoken asides. Janelle Turcos costumes for the men are perfect, but the dresses for the women just seem sad and forgettable, an afterthought. The set, by Billy Davis, is an impressive Art Deco bandstand, with multiple lighted half arcs and signs for the Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom, among others. Every now and then, this production shows a spark of what it could be, if the performers took it up a notch and brought it to the next level. Aint Misbehavin is a sassy musical that should get your blood pumping and toes tapping. (The original Broadway show received a Tony for Best Musical and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical.) You should leave the theater with a smile on your face and a gleam in your eye. But sometimes it seems as if everyone is taking the title too literally, leaving us with a show thats too nice and too polite. >>What: Aint Misbehavin >>When: through April 30 >>Where: The Herb Strauss Theater, 2200 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel >>Cost: $30 >>Info: 472-6862 in the know Carla Stewart Christopher Brasfield Sarita CrawfordBianca Denis Steven C.

Their mission: to learn more about how The Immokalee Foundation provides educational opportunities for Immokalees young residents. The morning began with a driving tour of the Immokalee Farm Workers Village and Immokalee Housing & Family Services along with local schools and housing districts. But the biggest impact of the day came when the tour wound up at the Immokalee Technical Center. Here, the group heard about the numerous opportunities available to the youngsters enrolled in TIF programs. The foundation administers a range of programs that focus on mentorship, after-school activities, college scholarships and the development of vocational skills, On this day, our guests came face-to-face with the very kids these initiatives have helped along the way and with the program managers that make it happen. Vocational Success Manager Elda Hernandez explained how important it is to help young people understand that success is not just about money. We help them to understand that it is also about finding their passion and giving 100 percent to that passion, she said. Most importantly, we want them to know that we are here to support them. Perhaps no one knows that better than Jonathan Cantu, a 17-year-old senior and aspiring fashion designer. Last summer, Jonathan spent a month as an art student at two prestigious schools in Chicago. While there, he was guest in the home of TIF board member Joe Zednik and his wife, Dee. I had never flown, never been on a train or a taxi, Jonathan recalled. I knew I loved fashion design, but had never taken a class or had any experience. The experience only encouraged him more and ignited his passion. It changed my life.Pathways to SuccessThrough its Pathways to Success program, TIF provides ongoing mentorship for students, helping them set up individual academic plans that allow them to graduate from college, and helping them develop important life skills such as time management and effective study habits. One participant, 17-year-old Benisa Cherry, noted the program has taught her that nothing can stand in her way. All my life, Ive been told Im not good enough, or Im not going to make it, she said. This program has taught me that I am good enough, I can make it, and I am somebody. For her, that means aspiring to be an obstetrician.Immokalee ReadersThe Immokalee Readers program matches high school tutors with children from kindergarten through second grade for reading lessons after school. Juan Sandoval has been a tutor for more than two years. He knows the struggles many of the kids face; he came to the community from Mexico when he was 8 years old and had a difficult time learning to read and write English. Now, Juan is able to show the younger children that someone cares about them and their education. In fact, the experience has given him the desire to be an elementary school teacher. Listening to high school students benefiting from the programs is one thing, but seeing incredible success stories is quite another. David Turrubiartez became involved in TIF during his senior year in high school. Like many others before him, he had a hard life growing up, working in the fields and trying to juggle schoolwork and family life. However, it also taught him hard work and determination. Through TIF, David earned a four-year, full tuition scholarship to any school in Florida. He chose Edison State College in Fort Myers. He is enrolled full time and also works a full-time job. His goal, he said, is to be president of the United States. In fact, he said, its not a matter of if he becomes president, but when. David credits TIF for giving him the opportunities he never would have had otherwise. They taught me to reach for the moon, he said. And even if I miss, I know Im among stars.

TAURUS (April 30 to May 20) P r actical matters dominate the week, but cultural activities also are favored, especially those that can be shared with someone special in the Bovines life. Some important news might be forthcoming. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Y ou need t o know more about a possible career move in order to see if it offers a real opportunity or just a change. Youre sure to get lots of advice some of it good but the decision must be yours. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) T he arri val of hoped-for good news about a loved one dominates most of the week and provides a great excuse for the party-loving Moon Child to plan a special event to celebrate. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Leos and Leonas rushing t o f inalize their plans might want to think about slowing down the pace, or risk overlooking an important consideration that could become a sore point down the line. VIRGO (August 23 to September 2 2) The weeks challenges call for logical approaches. But sentiment also has its place. Sharing memories with a special someone, for example, strengthens the bond between you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A brand-new approach to a problem could have a good chance of succeeding if its based on a solid foundation of fact to strengthen its potential for standing up to scrutiny. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 2) A fa vorable report should give your optimism an important boost as you confront another phase of a challenge. Dont be timid about accepting advice from someone you trust. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 t o Dec ember 21) You might want to target another goal if your current aim is continually being deflected. But stay with it until you find that first sign of an opening, and then follow through. CAPRICORN (December 22 to Januar y 19) Although offers of advice might not always please the usually sure-footed Goat, good counsel is always worth considering, especially from those whose experience can be invaluable. AQUARIUS (January 20 to Februar y 18) Dont rush to make up for lost time. Your productivity can be measured not only by what you do, but how you do it. Move carefully until the job is done the way you like it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Emer ging f acts about someone you know might cause you to rethink your relationship.

If youre clamoring for something clever in an action movie, youll find it in Source Code. The premise an Air Force captain relives the same eight minutes until he finds a commuter train bomber is more Quantum Leap than Groundhog Day, and consistently keeps you on your toes until the ho-hum ending. Air Force Capt. Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) is in for an unusual day. He wakes up in the body of an unknown man, and converses with an unknown woman, Christina (Michelle Monaghan), who calls him Sean. Then, after eight minutes of confusion, he, Christina and everyone else on their commuter train outside Chicago die when a bomb blows up the train. Cut to Colter locked in a holding facility and speaking to a military woman named Colleen (Vera Farmiga), who informs him hes part of a government experiment called the Source Code, which enables him to cross over into another mans body in the last eight minutes of that mans life. With a second, much larger bomb threatening to kill millions, Colter relives the incident over and over until he can figure out whos behind the bombs and prevent the next attack. He also predictably develops feelings for Christina (that, and some other deft emotional touches do well to bring out the humanity of the characters). A lot could have gone wrong here, including it becoming laughably silly every time Colter begins again, but Ben Ripleys script is appropriately grounded and never ridiculous. In fact, the explanation for whats happening, why and how is pretty thorough, and the film leaves no plot holes by the end of its 93 minutes. Director Duncan Jones also does a nice job of methodically bringing Colter through the story. As Colters knowledge increases both inside the Source Code and out, the drama heightens to a level of gripping suspense. But then, just as its prime for a spectacular climax, the film ends with a bit of a thud. Too bad. There are some genuine emotions and hard-core science fiction aspects in play here, which is good, because it adds heart and brain to the repeated explosions. Mr. Gyllenhaal deserves a lot of credit for holding everything together, but the depth that Ms. Monaghan, Ms. Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright (as the mad scientist who invents the Source Code) bring keeps the movie serious and urgent. Those who saw Mr. Jones previous film, the moody sci-fi drama Moon, about a guy left alone for years on a lunar space station, will see definite similarities here themes of isolation, redemption and how technology thats ahead of its time has a direct impact on individuals. And if that sounds too heavy for you (sci-fi is traditionally very metaphorical), you can also enjoy Source Code for the solid entertainment it is. Dan Hudak is the chairman of the Florida Film Critics Circle and a nationally syndicated film critic. You can e-mail him at and read more of his work at Punch (Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish) After being institutionalized by her stepfather, Baby Doll (Ms. Browning) escapes into her own fantasy world with friends (Ms. Hudgens, Ms. Cornish). The action and visuals are top notch, but the story doesnt hold together. Rated PG-13.Paul (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, voice of Seth Rogen) Two British comic book geeks (Mr. Pegg, Mr. Frost) come across a wiseass alien (Mr. Rogen) as they travel through UFO hotspots in the Southwest. Its a cute premise to have fun with, but theres not much fun here. The story takes way too long to reveal relevant information, and theres far too much reliance on profanity for laughs. Rated R.The Lincoln Lawyer (Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe) A lawyer (Mr. McConaughey) who works out of his Lincoln Town Car is forced to defend a wealthy client (Mr. Phillippe) whom he doesnt believe is innocent. The title is terrible and there are too many endings, but the story is captivating and Mr. McConaughey is at the top of his game. Rated R.

For more information, visit The following are the first place winners in the categories of Poetry and Fiction:Winters CallingIs winter calling me? Drawing me back to frosted glen and ridge where powdered sugar dusts the giant firs, and snow bound laurels in their tight knit thicket stand, a huddled mass of frozen trolls. Where in the hollow of the tallest oak the tail of one gray squirrel flashes, then withdraws, as he settles in to ponder Hamlets hesitation (with his small imagination), wondering, in a seasons sleep: What dreams may come? What dreams .... When cold and calm conspire to dull the senses fingers first, and fist and feet and face, touch and movement slowly lost until the numbness steals all grace, until the numbness owns it all. Then from his fragile, icy perch the mockingbird Mocks Me with varied melody, for he, despite his cold adversity, finds ample cause to sing. Is winter calling out to me? Will there be another spring?

Were putty in his hands, my husband and I no hard sell for him this time. He is the authority, we are the uninformed, and the three of us morph into our assigned roles. Now this here model has been a popular choice, he says, exposing his black onyx cufflinks as his smooth puffy hand caresses the leather appointments. It looks expensive glittering trim, seamless seams. My husband brings up the subject of cost. What does this one run? Ahh, says Mr. Expert, the manufacturer has upgraded it for next year, so we can offer quite a saving for you folks. If its so popular, why do they have to upgrade it? Its hard to concentrate as the associate (identified as such by his bronze, pretentious badge) and my husband discuss details. Their voices float into a bubble behind me as I drift ahead. I dont much care what they decide. A forest green, plush interior catches my attention. It triggers a memory of similar material in the apartment Mom and I shared during a year of upheavals. Its only temporary, I can hear her saying as we climb the two flights of stairs adjacent to Lowest Prices Anywhere Samsons Appliances. At the top a hallway cuts left, right, and another right leading us to a three-room apartment with handprint-smudged woodwork and noncommittal beige walls. I focus on disturbed dust motes dancing in front of me as sunlight struggles to seep through 9-foot-high filmy windows. A refrigerator, stove and sink cram a living room alcove no walls to contain odors, no door to hide a messy kitchen bizarre. I wrestle to open a window the growl of a Greyhound bus roars two stories below, towering over road-mates as they jockey to leave the city and self-induced fumes behind. Across the street a Schlitz Beer sign blinks neon white, gold and burgundy, and although Im unable to hear their words, the body language of the couple standing under it suggests an argument. Its impossible to imagine living here. I hate my father for leaving, forcing us to move from the suburbs. I slam the window shut. This is no place for a 12-year old and my gasp of disgust doesnt escape Moms notice. This isnt going to be so bad after I fix it up, she cajoles. We can put a border up there and itll bring the ceiling down. Her arm sweeps toward a wall, paint it sort of a rose color. Youll see, this place will look nice for when we have company. Company? I doubt it. Im not ever bringing my friends here. Phooey, my friends are 15 miles away; I have none here. My gasp becomes a snort and works it way into a sniffle. Mom promises, Remember, its only temporary. We wont be here long, only until I find a better place. I check out my bedroom and discover an unexpected plus a black iron fire escape hangs outside my window. I budge the lower pane up and tentatively step out. A wind gust takes me by surprise, and when I peer through the grid under my tennis shoes, I shudder. I scramble back inside, but the fire escapes uniqueness has intriguing possibilities. The movers wheel in my furniture. I paw through my box of clothes, sniffing the familiar and begin unpacking. Mom hurries into my room, eyes wide and fingertips to her lips. Sweetie, she says, Were going to have to share the other bedroom. We need to rent this one in order to live here. What? Were not only living in the middle of Cincinnati, but I dont even get my own bedroom? I stomp into the living room, and consider running outside. But, where? No bicycle, no park or playground, no corner candy store simply one building smashed up against another, imprisoned by rolling steel. My sniffles become sobs and I throw myself on the sofa. Mom, saying nothing, sits beside me and wraps her arms around me until I notice the movers glances as they traipse in and out of the apartment. Eyes down, pouting mouth, I move my clothes to her bedroom. Moms true to her word. My aunt and she scrub the walls, working the sponges in circular motions not to leave steaks until the buckets contents no longer turn a murky gray. All three rooms are painted a soft rose. The high border near the ceiling creates the optical illusion Mom hoped for and the forest green velveteen curtain does, indeed, hide the awkward kitchenette. Our mahogany dining-room table occupies the place of honor in the window nook and becomes a favorite for homework while surveying drunken brawls and streaking fire engines. But, Im immune to the street-level hubbub as the apartment transitions into a home. I adapt, an inner-city child, a latchkey kid who discovers recreation is volleying a tennis ball against cement buildings or sunbathing on a flat tarred roof. Other kids in the building and I race through department stores, sample deli-food, pilfer candy, until the manager shoos us out. We catch the streetcar and ride backwards to the end of the line. A year later when Mom announces, I found an apartment in a better location. Well be moving, Im dismayed and. A cough disrupts my time travel. Clearing his throat, the associate asks, So, Mrs. Klein, have you made a decision? It doesnt matter which I choose, I whisper, too low for him to catch, and nod toward a serviceable, unadorned casket. The salesman arches an eyebrow and challenges, Are you sure Mother would want this one? Im positive. It is, after all, only temporary. Shes already moved to a better location.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 C25 Stitch n Bitch Superstar Knitting Knit Your Own Royal WeddingandDuring the past decade or so, theres been something of a revival of the traditional art of knitting, particularly among young women. This new wave of youthful seamstresses delights in tweaking the classics while displaying a devotion to craft and skill that would make their grandmothers proud.In Stitch n Bitch Superstar Knitting, author Debbie Stoller takes in hand those new knitters who are ready to graduate from the basics but feel intimidated by more complex techniques.

Should a chair be a conversation piece or be comfortable? Twentiethcentury designers chairs can be either, but theyre rarely both. A chair that looks like a huge cupped hand is hard to ignore or forget. It often is pictured but not identified. Pedro Friedeberg (b. 1936), an Italian-born designer from Mexico, is an architect, painter and designer of furniture and useless objects. His Hand chairs were first made in the 1980s and still are in production. His work sells for high prices to todays collectors. Want an imaginative clock? Friedeberg made one with protruding hands that substitute for numerals. He cleverly made the hands with one, two, three, four or five fingers pointing up, then for numbers six to 12 he created hands with six fingers, seven fingers, etc. Another of his designs is the 1980s Mariposa (Butterfly) chair. A large, colorful mahogany butterfly is the seat, another is the back. It too is very out of the ordinary and lumpy, but its comfortable. A new young group of collectors searches for the work of designers from the 1930s to 2000 and often pays very high prices. Works by famous designers have gone up in value while much of the collecting market has gone down. Q: I have a bright red plastic biscuit cutter that says For Bisquicks on the handle and Bonnyware on the side. I still use it to make baking powder biscuits. It was my mothers. Any idea how old it is? A: We have been told that Bonny Ware plastic was made by Reynolds Spring Co. of Jackson, Mich., but we are not sure. The company is not on any of our lists of manufacturers of plastic kitchen wares. Bisquick became a brand name in 1931 and still is on the market. We are sure the cutt er was meant to be used to make baking powder biscuits using Bisquick, probably about 1960. The added s may have been a way to avoid suggesting the makers of Bisquick endorsed the product. Hundreds of biscuit c utters, salt-and-pepper sets and other bright plastic pieces marked Bonny Ware are for sale on the Internet for prices as low as $5, but no one seems to know who made them. Can anyone help? Q: I have some old blue and white plates from China. I was told they are called Canton or Nanking because of the pattern. What is the difference? A: Canton and Nanking are both patterns of dishes made in China from the late 1700s to the early 1900s. Both are named for cities in China where the dishes were thought to have been made, Form at odds with function in popular designsKOVELS: ANTIQUES terryKOVEL

Email: Or By Phone: 239-513-0333 or 800-865-8111we now know that Nanking was the port used to ship the dishes. Both patterns are blue and white and both have a scene with a landscape, building, bridge and trees. Nanking has a spear and post border and often has some gold trim. Canton has a rain and cloud border. There is sometimes a person on the bridge on a Nanking plate, but never on a Canton plate. Nanking is a better-quality product with crisp decorations and extra gold trim. Both Canton and Nanking dishes were made for the American market and after 1891 were marked China or Made in China. Some dishes have an orange peel glaze. This is caused by using too thick a glaze and should not affect the price. In the 1950s, collectors could find dishes for a few dollars each and often assembled a full dinner service for a family. Today both Nanking and Canton are classed as Chinese Export china and bring much higher prices $150 for a Nanking plate and $350 for a 9-inch Canton bowl. Q: I just found a bottle of Bols creme de menthe at the back of my grandfathers liquor cabinet. The label says 1868. Inside the bottle is a ballerina who spins while music plays. How much is this old bottle worth? A: Your bottle was not made in 1868. That was the year Bols was taken over by new management. The musical bottle was sold from 1957 to 1980. The Dutch company sold several different types of liqueur, including creme de menthe, in the bottle. It is a very common bottle worth about $20. The bottles are offered online for about $60 with the original box down to $10 for a worn bottle. Tip: If you accidentally dust off a bit of veneer, a loose screw or a piece of metal mounting, immediately put it in an envelope in a drawer or tape or pin it to the back of the furniture. When you have time, decide if you or an expert should do the needed restoration. These small pieces should be carefully saved because they can never be exactly duplicated.

PAGE 108 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC38 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 BOAT RENTALS 239-530-5134 RATES: There was a time when restaurant wine lists offered nothing but familiar brands and predictable choices. But when was the last time you uncorked a bottle of Lancers or Blue Nun?Over the past 30 or so years, the American palate has outgrown liebfraumilch and other such callow varieties. Winemakers and distributors have responded by expanding the range of products available. Nowadays, you never know what rare treasure youll happen upon on a restaurants wine list.For example, in recent months, Ive savored a stellar Intipalka Tannat 2009 ($22) at Incas Kitchen in Golden Gate. Though Peru is not noted for its wines, this was a memorable bottle, with rich blackberry aroma and flavor, good tannic structure, a hint of spice and a clean finish. At Sam-Bucco Bistro in Naples, I enjoyed Travaglini Gattinara 2004 ($68), a tasty nebbiolo thats far more affordable than the Barolos from the same grape and region. At Cru in Fort Myers, I sampled a delicious Lang & Reed 214 Napa Cabernet Franc 2008 ($48). Theres fascinating variety to be had throughout Southwest Florida, perhaps reflecting the greater range of food available. Even some chains are getting into the act. Flemings Steakhouse, for instance, offers 100 wines by the glass and also in flights of three, 2-ounce portions designed for sampling and comparing. Selecting new wines is a process, says Aleksander Stepanovich, manager and sommelier at Sea Salt in Naples. Its not simply tasting wines; you try to match flavors in the wines with the dishes you prepare. Getting your guests involved is important as well. I find out what styles of wine they like and look for similar wines in the marketplace. If they like French Burgundy, there are different regions with terroirdriven pinot noir. I try to look for wines that come from lesser-known areas, brands that are not widely distributed, as well as new releases from familiar labels. Dayna Anding, general manager of Sweet Melissas on Sanibel, says, I am usually looking for a specific grape variety in a price range. I want to make sure it pairs with our menu. Customers sometimes say we dont have enough wines that they recognize. But when you train your servers well, they will educate the customers and get them to try new wines. Value is as important as interesting lore. There is not a wine on my list I wouldnt drink myself, says Harold Balink, chef/ owner of Cru in Fort Myers, but I select them to be great values. Our selection is driven by the customer demanding better wines, not necessarily big-name wines. Restaurateurs update wine lists periodically, as availability, menu and tastes change. America has had a quick learning curve with wine over the last few decades, says Mr. Balink. Years ago, French wines ruled, only to be eclipsed by California chardonnays and cabernet sauvignons, he says. Then people discovered merlot, zinfandel and petite syrah. As Americans drink and experience more, we realize wine is really about balance and structure, and that is really driving which regions are popular now, Mr. Balink says. We used to have tons of Aussie shiraz on wine lists. Now we look for good, unusual wines that pair up well with food, wines from Umbria, the Loire Valley and Oregon. Larger by-the-glass selections help wine lovers experiment. Now we have cabernet franc, mourvedre and carmenere varietals, wines that people werent thinking about 10 years ago, Mr. Balink says. Its how many people discover new favorites. Our guests can try new wines theyre not familiar with, or different styles of wines they already know and drink, says Mr. Stepanovich. The market continues to develop with more wines becoming available from smaller or lesser-known regions. This is where the consumers can find value as well as explore new tastes. Sea Salt features new wines by the glass to gauge customer demand. One unusual wine from northern Spain Txomin Etxaniz 2009 ($45) recently graduated to the bottle list. This is a very interesting white wine, he says. Clean and crisp with lots of minerality, softer tropical fruit flavors and a light acidity. Its excellent with grilled fish. Sweet Melissas even offers half-glasses, allowing customers to pair a different wine with each small plate they sample. One of Ms. Andings favorites is Velt 1 Gruner Veltliner ($32) from Austria. Its a perfect summer wine, and it is always summer here, she says. Light, crisp and refreshing with a little effervescence, it is great with all seafood dishes and pairs nicely with our spicy foods as well. jimMcCRACKEN As palates evolve, so, too, must restaurant wine lists VINO Travaglini Gattinara at SamBuccos Bistro Intipalka Tannat at Incas Kitchen in Naples Txomin Etxaniz at Sea Salt in NaplesJIM MCCRACKEN / FLORIDA WEEKLY

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 7-13, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C39 Patricia and Christopher Jubinville have been integral parts of the Trail Caf and Grill for a long time, but now that they own it, they are giving it their personal touch. Both are graduates of Johnson & Wales Culinary School. Mr. Jubinville conjures up goodies in the kitchen while his wife manages the front of the house. Theyve brought with them a made-from-scratch philosophy that shines through in the breakfast and lunch fare they serve. During the week, breakfast is available until 11:30 a.m., but its an all-day affair on weekends. The breakfast lineup is impressive: omelets, crepes, breakfast skillets, benedicts, just-plain eggs, hot and cold cereals and a host of pancakes, waffles and intriguing French toasts, including cherries jubilee and a house specialty, razzleberry stuffed (with glazed pecans in the toast and a fruit compote on top). Lunch options salads, burgers, sandwiches, wraps and entrees are scaled back on weekends, but theres a representative sampling available nonetheless. The caf is divided into two casually comfortable rooms. The front room, closest to the entrance, has a slightly more formal feel, with plaid curtains and upholstered chairs clustered around the tables. A lunch counter and wooden booths give the back room a relaxed diner atmosphere. We snagged the last available table in the front room and settled in to peruse the large menu. Selecting just one item from the breakfast menu proved taxing. The omelets and skillets looked appetizing, but the crepes and French toast beckoned as well. What choice did we have but to have some of both? A Greek skillet ($9.99) began with scrambled eggs that were topped with tomatoes, potatoes, kalamata olives, spinach, scallions and feta cheese. The eggs were properly seasoned and cooked just right and the toppings were applied in just the right proportions so that none overpowered the others. My companion was delighted to find apple butter and honey on the table to apply to his toast. A granny omelet ($8.99) contained Granny Smith apples, bacon, scallions and brie. I cant recall having encountered apples in an omelet before but it worked well in this one. The omelet was fluffy and cooked through, the tart apples just slightly crisp and the bacon just salty enough to be noticeable without dominating the mix. The only improvement Id make in this dish is to cut down on the rich cheese, but thats a personal choice and one easily dealt with by extracting it and leaving it on the plate. A side of tomatoes looked nice but had little flavor. Much better was the big homemade biscuit that tasted heavenly with butter and honey. From the lunch selections, I tried a diner classic: a grilled Reuben ($9.99). It was a faithful rendition consisting of grilled marbled rye bread, filled with thinly sliced peppery pastrami, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut with just a touch of Russian dressing. The ingredients could have been more evenly distributed the cheese dominated one side of the bread while the meat poked out of the other side but a simple readjustment rectified that problem. A side of crisp, fresh, warm and lightly salted homemade potato chips was a delicious surprise. Everyone in my party agreed they could make a meal of them. We also ordered the Brittany crepes ($9.99) to share. The crepes were delicate and tender, with dollops of velvety mascarpone cheese inside bathed in a not-toosweet glaze studded with lingonberries and Mandarin orange segments. The cottage fries that came with them (other options are hash browns, grits, fruit or tomatoes) were well done, too. Despite the fact that the caf was full, service was smooth and unobtrusive throughout the meal. Servers delivered and cleared plates in a timely fashion and replenished coffee, tea and water without having to be asked. It looks like the Jubinvilles have a winner on their hands, and I predict more and more hungry people will head up the trail for a hearty breakfast or lunch at the Trail Caf. karenFELDMAN food & wine CALENDAR Saturday, April 9, 2:30 p.m., Nap les Tomato: Learn how to make mozzarella and buratta during a class that includes instruction, light snacks and a pound of mozzarella curd to take home; $35, 14700 Tamiami Trail N.; 598-9800.
