Scott Randolph, D-Orlando, spoke the word uterus. The Republican House leadership admonished Rep. Randolph and told him that he was never again to discuss body parts. This set me to wondering: Is it possible to write a column about the Florida Legislature (and Gov. Rick Scott) without referencing body parts? The more I pondered this challenge, the more daunting it seemed. But I decided to give it a go. I will not spell out body parts in full, but I will use a letter or two or three as a helpful guide for those who are limited in their knowledge of anatomy. I believe this slight modification to be in keeping with the spirit of the Houses edict.) Well, Id say this flap over the word u----has wedged the Florida House of Representatives collective t-in the proverbial wringer. This controversy has become a national story and made our Legislature and by extension our state the b--of countless jokes. Consider this: The group that cannot bring itself to outlaw sex between humans and animals is nonetheless outraged by the mere mention of a womans u-----. Whoa, Ill bet Freud would have had a field day with that. Whats the big deal, anyway? Its not as if Rep. Randolph delivered a heartfelt ode to the v-----. Nor did he rhapsodize longingly about bodacious t-t-s. Can you imagine the chaos if he had gotten really riled and screamed p---at the top of his l---s? I dare say such an assault on the virgin e--s of our lawmakers might have resulted in a rash of h---attacks and c------l hemorrhages. These elected h---d cases are known principally as an assemblage of shameless grifters whose sweaty p---s stay greasy from the huge contributions they wrest from heavily financed special interests. Now, this hidebound congregation, composed mostly of Neanderthal Republicans and Tea Party diehards, has become the self-appointed arbiter of what constitutes proper public discourse. The rationale for banning u----was that it might have damaged the tender psyches of teenage pages. What a load of hypocritical bunk. This band of bandits is more interested in giving tax breaks to corporations than funding education, and by the time theyre through wrecking our schools, well be turning out high school graduates who wont know a u----from a u---a. (The preceding word is particularly arcane, so heres a hint: It is the little thingy that hangs in the back of your t----t.) These legislative blue n---s also said they wanted to protect anyone in the public gallery who might have been offended. The speaker believes it is important for all members to be... respectful to visitors and guests, particularly the young pages and messengers, said a spokeswoman for clueless House Speaker Dean Cannon, who yet again demonstrated that he doesnt know whether to scratch his watch or wind his a--. We have come to expect so little from our leaders in Tallahassee that it would seem damn near impossible for them to disappoint us further. But they do. Weve known all along that they lack the b---s to do anything that even remotely accrues to the commonweal. (I do realize, by the way, that legislators who sport those pesky u------s, do not come equipped with t-------s, so the point is figurative, not literal). Still, these continuing legislative insults to our intelligence are multiplying at a rate that astounds even the most jaded observer. Speaking of insulting our intelligence, how about that pain-in-the-n--Rick Scott? He does so regularly and with scandalous ease. According to at least one poll, Mr. Scott is now the leastpopular governor in the United States. Didnt take long, did it? Im a little concerned about our governor, though. Hes always tended toward the cadaverous, but he now really looks rough around the edges. With those sunken c----s, darting e--s, fluttery nervous h---s and assorted tics, he radiates the emaciated energy of a crack h---d gone too long without a score. Not that Im suggesting the governor uses drugs. From what I understand, he takes exquisite care of his b---, which is wonderful since that means he probably wont become disabled anytime soon and therefore wont face the devastation that awaits the poor and afflicted who are the primary targets of his draconian budget cuts. On the other hand, the governor suspects everyone else of being higher than Ben Franklins kite hence his insistence on regular drug testing for state employees. Coincidentally, it doesnt hurt that this slimy bit of political theater plays well with his crazy base. I offer a counter proposal: Gov. Scott should be required to take IQ tests at regular intervals, with the results posted on his official website. While were at it, lets randomly yank those numb---s in the House and Senate off the floor and have them blow into a Breathalyzer. Id love to know how much hooch is flowing through the v---s of these statesmen as they legislate Florida back into the Dark Ages. If these jokers are governing under the influence, maybe we can sober em up and get them to act rationally. But if they are by their very nature inherently lazy, stupid and mendacious, then we will just have to ride it out. Trust me on one thing: The Great U----Controversy of 2011 will fade. But another bit of mean-spirited stupidity will emerge soon from this Legislature. You can bet your sweet a-on that. Have they no b---ns? billCORNWELL bcornwell@floridaweekly.comCOMMENTARY

Holder blamed members of Congress, who he said have intervened and imposed restrictions blocking the administration from bringing any Guantanamo detainees to trial in the United States. Nevertheless, one Guantanamo case will be tried in New York. No, not the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed or any of his alleged co-conspirators. This week, the New York State Supreme Court will hear the case against Dr. John Leso, a psychologist who is accused of participating in torture at the Gitmo prison camp that Obama pledged, and failed, to close. The case was brought by the New York Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA) on behalf of Dr. Steven Reisner. Reisner, a New York psychologist and adviser to Physicians for Human Rights, is at the center of a growing group of psychologists campaigning against the participation of psychologists in the U.S. governments interrogation programs, which they say amounts to torture. Unlike the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the largest association of psychologists in the world, has refused to implement a resolution passed by its membership barring APA members from participating in interrogations at sites where international law or the Geneva Conventions are being violated. Reisner, a child of Holocaust survivors, is running for president of the APA, in part to force it to comply with the resolution. John Francis Leso is a U.S. Army major, formerly chief of the clinical psychology service at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. According to CJA, Dr. Leso led the first Behavioral Science Consultation Team (BSCT) at ... Guantanamo from June 2002 to January 2003, where he co-authored an interrogation policy memorandum that incorporated illegal techniques adapted from methods used by the Chinese and North Korean governments against U.S. prisoners of war. Reisner filed a complaint with the New York state agency that governs licenses of psychologists, the New York Office of Professional Discipline, asking for an investigation and appropriate disciplinary action. He took this route, Reisner told me, because health professionals are privy to private information, to weaknesses, to psychological and physical compromises, and they are privy to that information because they take an oath not to abuse that information to cause harm. So when health professionals use that very information ... to cause harm, we want to make sure that those people are held accountable and have their licenses revoked, if necessary. The OPD declined to investigate, so Reisner is seeking a court order to force the agency to do so. Maj. Leso recommended three categories of interrogation severity at Guantanamo, depending on the prisoners ability to resist. Category III included daily use of 20 hour interrogations; the use of strict isolation without the right of visitation by treating medical professionals or the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC); the use of food restriction for 24 hours once a week; the use of scenarios designed to convince the detainee he might experience a painful or fat al outc ome; non-injurious physical consequences; removal of clothing; and exposure to cold weather or water until such time as the detainee began to shiver. Leso is alleged to have participated in the interrogation of Mohammed al-Qahtani, a young man captured in Afghanistan and referred to as the 0th hijacker. Al-Qahtanis interrogation was so harsh that his charges were dropped. He is represented by the Center for Constitutional Rights, which said in response to Holders announcement: The Obama administration all but admitted political failure today as it announced it would try the 9/11 defendants before the deeply flawed military commission system rather than in Article III civilian courts as originally planned. ... In the same breath that the U.S. is calling for the rule of law in the Middle East, it is subverting it at home. The roll call of U.S. officials implicated in torture is long, yet not one of them has been held accountable: George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, John Yoo, Alberto Gonzales, psychologists Col. Larry James and John Leso, among others. As an Arab Spring is celebrated around the world, we should turn over a new leaf in the United States and celebrate an American Spring as well, one that rejects torture and is not afraid to use its judicial system, whether trying accused terrorists or torturers. 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.One Guantanamo trial that will be held in New YorkIt is one of the magical moments in American history: On Sept. 4, 1882, Thomas Edison threw a ceremonial switch at the offices of J.P. Morgan in New York City, and there was light. The nearby Pearl Street Station power plant provided the electricity for light bulbs to switch on throughout the immediate area. The New York Times had 52 of the bulbs and reported they provided light soft, mellow, and graceful to the eye ... without a particle of flicker to make the head ache. The light bulb represents one of the most ingenious and useful Americancreated commercial products so ingenious, in fact, that its the metaphor for the arrival of a new idea. Now, the humble old incandescent bulb is in its senescence, about to be snuffed out entirely by an act of Congress. In 2007, Congress passed and President George W. Bush signed an energy bill forbidding the sale of the traditional, cheap incandescent bulbs on grounds that they arent energy-efficient enough. This has stoked grass-roots opposition ( and bulb-hoarding among people ready to give up the old bulbs only if someone pries them from their cold, dead fingers. Republicans in the House and Senate are pushing to roll back the provision in the 2007 law. Are there more important matters of state to attend to? Surely. Is the light-bulb regulation rushing us down the road to serfdom? Probably not. But it is so annoying, it deserves the resistance of friends of freedom and of nice, clear artificial light. Think of the national 55 mph speed limit, imposed in 1974, also in the name of energy efficiency. Congress repealed it in 1995. Think of the metric system, pushed in the Metric Conversion Act of 1975, again in the name of efficiency. It never quite caught on. Think of, for that matter, the 3 pence-a-pound Townshend duty on tea. Was that the end of the world? No, but it was the principle of the damn thing. One of the alternatives to the old incandescent bulb is the compact fluorescent lamp, a twisted affair seemingly modeled on fusilli pasta. It contains mercury. If it breaks, you have to undertake cleanup measures worthy of a minor industrial accident. Its light is inferior to the old bulb. One congressional critic says it reminds him of something out of a Soviet stairwell. At a hearing on the light-bulb regulation, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky castigated the deputy assistant secretary of energy in terms she may have never heard before. Noting that the Obama administration professes to be prochoice, he argued, There is hypocrisy that goes on in people that claim to believe in some choices but dont want to let the consumer decide what they can buy and install in their own house. Just so. You can be forgiven for thinking no household object or minor convenience is safe. First, they made our toilets less efficient. Then, they came after our plastic grocery bags. Then, they mucked around with our dishwasher detergent. At the light bulb, brilliant for more than 100 years and counting, its time to make a stand.

BY EDEN AUTISM SERVICES FLORIDA _______________________________Special to Florida WeeklyLaw enforcement agencies throughoutLaw enforcement agencies throughout Southwest Florida have adopted a proactive approach to dealing with people with mental illnesses and disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder. Our regions sheriffs and police chiefs are taking the initiative to train patrol officers in techniques to help them as first responders confronting a person with ASD.While no two individuals with autism are alike, many typically lack communication and social skills and can be perceived by the general public as disturbing or alarming. As a result, a person with ASD is seven times more likely than other individuals to have an encounter with a police officer. When a police officer is called to this type of situation, its because the complainant is concerned about unusual behavior, not dangerous or criminal activity. As part of its enhanced training for deputies, the Collier County Sheriffs Office focuses an entire block on autism identifying signs and making deputies aware that a person with autism might be sensitive to touch or flashing lights. Our deputies learn how to respond to calm down a person they suspect might have autism, says Lt. George Welch of the departments prevention services bureau. They learn that all people with autism present differently and have different levels of functionality. They learn how to communicate and how not to communicate. As officers learn, patience and time are the best resources when dealing with the individual with autism. People with ASD might need additional time to process a request. They might avoid eye contact or demonstrate a variety of unusual behaviors, including repetition, flapping their arms or rocking their bodies (known as stimming), an unusual tone of voice or a peculiar or unbalanced gait behavior that could be perceived as intoxication. The person with ASD might also invade personal space or need to touch objects and people as a way to acclimate to a new environment. Noises and activity can further agitate their condition. Officers are learning that a calm, reassuring voice is often the best approach. Theyre also being trained to use clear, concise language, to avoid slang that could be interpreted literally, and to provide a long pause that will allow the person to process and respond to a request. Not interfering with stimming or acclimation is also important, as is trying to determine why the individual is acting out. Although encounters with individuals with ASD are not common for the CCSO, the training has proven beneficial. Lt. Welch recalls one incident when a deputy realized he was dealing with an individual with autism. The man was trying to get into a pool area at night. It was an autism facility, but the deputy didnt know that at the time, says Lt. Welch. He had just gone through the class and remembered the instructor mentioning that people with autism are often attracted to water. He approached this individual calmly. He found a hose and turned it on so the man could play with the water. It was fortunate the deputy had the training and was able to locate something to keep him calm versus grabbing him. Collier deputies are more likely to respond to a report that an individual with ASD has wandered off a problem addressed by the Project Lifesaver program launched three years ago by the departments victim advocacy division. Through the nonprofit program, parents and caregivers can buy water-resistant bracelets that emit a silent radio signal. Patrol cars and the departments aerial unit can pick up the signal from up to seven miles away. Of the 13 Collier County residents who wear the bracelets, half have autism, according to Angela Larson, supervisor of victim and senior advocacy. A partnership with the Pilot Club of Naples and its annual 5K run help defray some of the costs to the families. The bracelets provide peace of mind, Ms. Larson says. When someone wanders off, time is of the essence. Our average search time with these bracelets is only 30 minutes. The sensitivity and proactive approach demonstrated by the CCSO and other local agencies is precisely why police incidents are few and far between. Many of these skills can also be practiced by members of the general public when facing a situation they dont initially understand. Eden Autism Services Florida is holding a family fun day and resource fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Eimerman Education Center, 2801 County Barn Road in Naples. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to supervise children while parents and grandparents attend education sessions about understanding and supporting children who have autism.

PAGE 10 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2011 began in 2007, and many could be subject to pursuit by banks or lenders who get a judges permission. The same is true for homeowners forced into short-selling their homes. The sums lenders seek could range from small to large. Its already happened to Molene Cadet, a Naples resident who borrowed money from Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, based in Tampa, and bought a home in Lee County in 2006, the records show. The bank foreclosed on the home last year, and then on Jan. 21 this year convinced a judge it could pursue her for $29,717, including principal, interest and late charges. And it might happen to Hope and Andrew Armbrust, who bought a home for $215,000 in 2006, lost it in foreclosure to the bank in 2009 still owing $193,500, and could now be on the hook for $195,757 but only if the bank decides to seek a deficiency judgment. Like Ms. Cadets, the Armbrusts lender was Suncoast, which is listed in a number of deficiency actions in Southwest Florida. Suncoast sold the Armbrust home on 69th Street West in Lehigh Acres for $30,000 last July. With three bedrooms, two baths and more than 1,700 square feet, its currently valued at about $40,500 by the Lee property appraiser. The Armbrusts would not talk about their financial risks when reached at their home in Cape Coral,. Shannon Puopolo, a lawyer who represents Suncoast in deficiency actions for the Fort Myers-based firm Henderson, Franklin, Starnes and Holt, did not return several telephone messages. But the Cadets and Armbrusts story is now increasingly common among those who lost their homes in foreclosure, or sold short. In each case, a lender can potentially chase a creditor the person who borrowed the money for as long as 20 years, pursuing either money or other wealth. Lenders can take one of two courses of action: They can seek the difference between the amount borrowed and the amount the home garnered in a short sale or its appraisal value at the time of foreclosure; or they can come after boats, jewelry, garnished wages, rental properties or the like, here in Florida or out of state. Were beginning to see banks waking up under the avalanche of foreclosures in recent years and saying, You know, there might be an opportunity to recoup some of this money if we take certain steps, says Robert St. Cyr, director of community outreach for Clerk of Courts Dwight Brock in Collier County. The legal ruling that allows a lenders pursuit of such debt after foreclosure or short sale is defined by Chapter 55 of the Florida statutes. Its known simply as a deficiency judgment. A deficiency judgment can be sought either by the first (primary) lender or by other interests: another mortgage holder, a mortgage insurance company or a government agency such as Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae. Lets say you owe $300,000 and you find a buyer to buy the house for $200,000 and you get the bank to agree to forego the rest of the mortgage and accept that, explains Jim Masch, chief deputy for Charlotte County Clerk of Courts, Barbara Scott. Ive seen letters come across from the lenders agreeing to short sales, and the fine language says they reserve the right or the FHA reserves the right to go after the creditor later.Mounting caseloadIf a bank does not formally agree to waive the right to pursue a creditor even after it has agreed to foreclosure or short sale, it has five years to appear before a judge. If the judge agrees to allow a deficiency action, the bank or its agents then have 10 years and 10 more with a renewal of the judgment after the first decade passes to come after a creditor for the money, officials say. The bank can follow the creditor through new careers in or out of state, all the way to new incomes, new property such as boats or jewelry, or second homes. Thats unless a creditor declares bankruptcy after the deficiency judgment (but not before). When you file a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13, you are discharging the unsecured debt. And a deficiency judgment (specifies) unsecured debt, explains Jonathan Tolentino, a Naplesbased bankruptcy attorney. Were coming up on five years since the recession began, and Im starting to see more of these deficiencies now. So a lot of creditors must have had it on their tickle systems. In the past, a lot of banks didnt even pursue discrepancies after foreclosures. Not now, it seems. We started keeping track of this about two years ago, says Charlie Green, Lee County clerk of courts. I thought the banks would be quicker to take this up, but they havent been. I dont think banks, though, can logically walk away from deficiency judgments. They owe it to their stockholders to pursue debt. And in Lee, in particular, theyre beginning to follow that logic. Although some counties such as Charlotte dont keep track of deficiency judgments per se, and some have far fewer than Lee (Collier records 36 deficiency judgments between Jan. 1, 2010 and April 2011), Lee is beginning to see a significant swell, with 272 listed for 2010, and 42 for the first two months of this year. A senior vice president of loss and risk mitigation at Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, Jim Simon, explained in comments to the Tampa Tribune that Suncoast pursues hundreds of deficiency judgments because it owes that effort to roughly 500,000 members. Were not looking to put (homeowners) in financial hardship, but we owe it to the rest of our members to collect as much as possible, he said. Prior to 2008 we never had a deficiency on a foreclosure. Its really being driven by whats happened to real estate values. Chris Black, a lawyer and the owner of Winged Foot Title Company serving clients in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties, represents neither a lender nor a buyer when he does title work on a home. Since he opened the business in 2007 just as the recession was heating up, his company began to specialize in short sales, which were abundant in the distressed market. What were concerned about when orchestrating a short sale is getting the bank to release the mortgage lien to issue a clear title to the next people, he explains. Heres the rub, and heres where a deficiency judgment comes into play: The release of the mortgage lien in a short sale does not necessarily mean the lender will release the debtor or borrower or seller from their obligations under the promissory note they signed. Thats where the potential (for economic burden on the creditor) is, especially from the short-sale scenario. We try to be very clear about that to anybody doing a short sale. Even though Mr. Black doesnt bargain on behalf of creditors, he will pass on their request that the bank drop its right to purse debt after the short sale, he adds. In foreclosures alone, the potential pool of opportunity for banks is massive, and the analogous clich of an iceberg only the tip of which is visible might not be far-fetched. Although 314 discrepancy judgments appear on the clerks books in Lee for the 14-month period beginning Jan. 1, 2010, the number of foreclosures listed in the county since 2007 four years ago stands at more than 72,500. In Collier for the same period, the number of foreclosures is 24,045. In Charlotte its 14,771. Those figures do not include the many short sales. In other words, more than 111,316 people who once borrowed money and bought homes in pursuit of the American dream on Floridas southwest coast could potentially be liable for the debts they incurred when banks foreclosed.Hard luck and debtAmong the potentially liable and fearing the prospect, she says are Dwayne and Edie Wilson. Mr. Wilson is a veteran firefighter, and the couple have two teenaged sons. The Wilsons bought a home on canal-front property roughly within 100 yards of the Caloosahatchee River east of Fort Myers in 1999, for $123,600. In 2005, they bought a vacant lot on a canal for $260,000, wrapped that into their home mortgage and refinanced in 2006 to the tune of $472,500, or just over $2,800 a month before taxes and expenses, their records show. Their household income was less than $100,000 at the time, or about $7,600 a month before any money was taken out. Soon they began to struggle, Mrs. Wilson says. Unable to sell the lot for years, even when they brought the price down to $85,000, by the beginning of 2008 they knew theyd have to leave their home unless they could work with their bank, Suncoast, to modify debt and the monthly payments. But when they tried to correspond with Suncoast through certified letters and telephone calls, they got no response, Mrs. Wilson says. At first we wanted to find a shortsale figure on the house, but the bank never even called us back on that. The Wilsons had used Suncoast to borrow money for houses, boats and lots, and not missed or been late on a house payment in almost 10 years, Mrs. Wilson explains. So they expected some help from the bank. Their offer to turn over the keys to their house, but consider a smaller Suncoast house already lost in foreclosure and sitting vacant, never got a response from the bank, either. None of that surprises the bankruptcy attorney, Mr. Tolentino. Suncoast is very aggressive, he says. They dont do any modifications. The attorneys may have their marching orders and they may just be doing what the client is telling them. That policy might have cost the Wilsons dearly. We watched our net worth go from about $600,000 or more to maybe $150,000 while we waited for phone calls from the bank, Mrs. Wilson recalls. Finally, Suncoast offered to lower the interest rate and accept a lower monthly payment for six months. But the bank failed to tell the Wilsons that if they agreed to the offer and could make the payments, they might get a second six-month relief followed by a permanent lower-interest-rate loan if they had proved for a year that they could meet those payments, Mrs. Wilson says. So the Wilsons turned it down, and only later discovered they might have been able to stay in their house if the offer had been made up front and in full. A deposition taken in July from a Suncoast official, identified as Mrs. Jacqulyne Gilbert, vice president of lost mitigation for Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, notes that Suncoast has no policy restricting the bank from discussing payment modifications before delinquency or default on a loan. But in the Wilsons case, Mrs. Gilbert stated there was no indication from her review of the file that Suncoast ever responded to the request for modification, either in writing or DOUBLEFrom page A1 COURTESY PHOTODwayne and Edie Wilson walked away from this waterfront home and a vacant lot. They could be on the hook for more than $500,000.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2011 NEWS A11 via telephone. In other words, the bank didnt try too hard, in Mrs. Wilsons view. And legally, it didnt have to, she admits. By late 2008, it was too late for the family. The Wilsons stopped paying the mortgage in September and eventually moved into a smaller home near Tampa. Suncoast now owns both the Fort Myers-area home and the lot, according to property appraisers records. But the story is likely not over, for the Wilsons or for the bank. Only three weeks ago, the bank recorded its ownership of those two properties with the county property appraiser at a sales price of $529,700 money Mrs. Wilson thinks the bank will pursue in the future. They havent tried to get a deficiency judgment yet, but we think they will, she says. And if they do, the Wilsons might very easily be saddled with a debt of more than $500,000. While their former house has been vacant, its been vandalized someone dropped the air conditioner through the ceiling into the living room and then stole it, leaving a large hole in the ceiling, Mrs. Wilson says. The one option the family has to avoid tying up their future in huge debt, is bankruptcy.The rose in the thornbushThat hard-luck story is only one of more than 110,000 foreclosure tales in Southwest Florida. Not all will result in so much trouble for those who have lost homes, some experts say.The sometimes difficult practicalities of pursuing debtors might mean escape from debt for many who could remain legally obligated if the lender pursues them. My guess about whether a bank will pursue future debt is that its a matter of practicality, more than anything, says Mr. Black. It costs money to pursue a deficiency judgment. The odds of collection are probably low in many cases especially if the bank has seen the debtors financial situation, which is a certainty. So then if theyre looking at an uncollectible debt, they may not want to spend time or money chasing it. There might be a rose in the thornbush of liability, at least for creditors: a federal tax break. Mike Brier, a CPA who has seen a couple of hundred such cases in the last two years, describes a federal rule expiring at the end of 2011 that seeks to take some of the burden off people who have lost homes. Its a debt forgiveness scenario. If you make the right election on your (1099c) tax form, you can exclude the difference from your taxable income, he explains. So if you bought a house in 2006 for $200,000, and its worth $100,000 today and the bank accepts the offer (of a short sale), the law allows you to exclude that from taxable income. Its a wonderful benefit. On the other hand, says Mr. Black, if the bank promises no future liability, the IRS might be able to seek taxes on that amount from the creditor.Which means that only death and taxes are certain, as Benjamin Franklin pointed out, but deficiency judgments are an increasing probability.

All Rights Reserved. FERGUSON.COMPassover delivers message of freedom to allPassover affirms the great truth that liberty is the inalienable right of every human being. Morris JosephWell, its that time of the year again when grocery stores are lined with Easter treats and Passover foods. And depending what faith you are will depend on which aisle you choose to visit. The point is we are choosing with our free will. For the majority of us, freedom is like a second skin; we have it, live it and hardly think much about it. But imagine not being able to pick up the box of matzoh or carton of crmefilled chocolate eggs. Freedom from oppression is part of our American experience. But for many today it is still the stuff of dreams. And for those lucky enough to be free, that right exists because of the hard-won battles of others. Passover remains a symbol of freedom triumphing over oppression. This annual spring holiday, though typically celebrated and observed by Jewish people, is a reminder that freedom can be yours if you are willing to work hard and even suffer for it. This is at the crux of the Jews struggle from about 400 years of bondage from the Egyptian pharaohs thousands of years ago. As the story goes, the Jews were enslaved by the Egyptians and forced to toil under their tyranny. The Jews decided they had enough being enslaved and decided to leave and be free. Moses, who had been summoned by God to help free the Jews, beseeched the Egyptian rulers to let them go. But they refused and a series of events unfolded to change their minds, including plagues of locusts, water turning to blood and the final and harshest event the slaying of every first-born Egyptian. After this, the Jews were told they could leave. So began their Exodus from Egypt and to freedom. It is the events that surround the Exodus that we mark and re-create every Passover. The holiday became named Passover after God sent the Angel of Death to pass over all of the marked Jewish homes and slay every Egyptian firstborn child. Today, symbols make up the Passover holiday, which is observed over an eight-day period of time. This year Passover will begin on the evening of April 18. Many observing are bustling about the grocery stores in search of matzoh, macaroons, horseradish, gefilte fish and other Passover foods for the two Seder nights. The Seders are celebrated on the first two nights of Passover. During the Seder, people around the table read the story of the Exodus in a book called the Haggadah and eat the symbolic foods representative of the ancients Jews journey from oppression to freedom. Matzoh, which looks like big crackers, is specially prepared unleavened bread. It has a lot of play during the Seder because it represents the haste in which the Jews were forced to go from their homes, leaving no time for the bread to fully bake. Bitter herbs are, of course, symbolic for the harsh treatment received while under the Egyptian rule. In remembering the plight and ultimate redemption of the Jews, Passover is a time to celebrate freedom for all. Every Jew is commanded every year to be as if he was rescued from Egypt, said Rabbi Jeremy Barras of Temple Beth El in Fort Myers. Rabbi Barras said we essentially celebrate God rescuing us and delivering us to truth. But Passover is not just a reminder of yesterday. It is relevant for everyone of all faiths today. We recognize that there is goodness in the world, Rabbi Barras said. Rabbi Adam Miller of Temple Shalom in Naples said attending a Seder is a good learning experience. I think its a wonderful way to share, he said. Rabbi Miller pointed out that the same oppression suffered by the ancient Jews is happening right now in our human family. Thats why in different parts of the world Jews remember at their Seders that others are still suffering nearby. Ethiopian Jews talk about people being oppressed in Darfur, Rabbi Miller said. But Passover asks more of us than to just celebrate freedom. It asks us to be kind to each other and remember those less fortunate. Area chabads, synagogues and Jewish centers are collecting money and pricey Kosher for Passover food for the needy. Having enough to eat and togetherness are central tenets in the Jewish faith. Places like Jewish Family Services of Lee County are collecting and distributing Seder in a Box to the needy, said Dr. Jaclynn Faffer, executive director of Jewish Family Services. But the sense of camaraderie and community felt at the Seder table is what makes a really old story relevant today. It really sends a strong message of freedom, said Rabbi Solomon Agin of Temple Shalom in Port Charlotte. BY ELLA NAYOR____________________enayor@ u mmoned b eseeched m g o.

Twelve specialty clinics are set up on a scheduled basis for cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gynecology, pain management and more. Regular education programs take place on topics including diabetes, breast health, colon cancer and smoking cessation. We have working poor people who are sick, says Mrs. Lascheid, who along with her husband and a community board co-founded the clinic. Asked why all of the effort over the years, Mrs. Lascheid states simply, Compassion. In the early days, handbills posted at laundromats, churches and similar locations helped get the word out to those in the community who needed the clinics services. Now they know. Its word-of-mouth, Dr. Lascheid says. Dr. Paul Jones, a physician in family practice in Naples, was a member of the clinics founding committee and, along with his wife, nurse Susan Jones, took part in the meeting in the Lascheids living room that brought the clinic to life. Twelve years later, both still volunteer at the clinic. Its medical practice in its purest form, says Dr. Jones. Demand for the clinics services is growing, he adds, as the base of working poor people in Collier County grows, largely due to former members of the middle class who find themselves in lower-paying jobs without health benefits. According to Dr. Lascheid, the clinic dispenses more than $200,000 retail value each month in medications and has an inventory of $1 million in medications. The clinic benefits from doctors donations of sample medications, and it can help patients obtain free medications directly from pharmaceutical manufacturers. In addition to serving patients, the clinics work helps local organizations and government save on the expense of unreimbursed medical care. We keep em out of the ER (emergency rooms), says Dr. Jones. A generous donorThe clinics first home was donated space in the now-demolished Grand Central Station commercial complex off Goodlette-Frank Road at U.S. 41 East, courtesy of then-owner NCH Healthcare System. After moving from one office to a bigger space, the clinic got the bad news: Grand Central Station was going to be sold. So, the clinic looked for a new home. One generous contributor, who gave the Lascheids $50,000 in seed money to start the dispensary, came up with a $1 million donation for a new building its current home on Goodlette-Frank Road. After a community groundbreaking in 2001, Mrs. Lascheid says, the clinic still needed $425,000 to be out from under a mortgage. I couldnt go to an organization and ask for money to pay a mortgage, she says, adding that the vision for the clinic has always been service to the community, not itself. Help was not long coming. The same man stepped up again, this time with a donation that cleared the mortgage. The contributor is no stranger to the CLINICFrom page A1

Trustees of the Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, presented $7.96 million in grant checks to charitable organizations benefiting Collier Countys underprivileged and at-risk children during a ceremony April 10 at the Naples Botanical Garden. Twenty-two charities received checks totaling $5.82 million to help fund and expand programs and services. Grants ranged from $25,000 (St. Matts Camps for Kids Program) to $1 million (Boys & Girls Club of Collier County). Grants presented today cover a range of childrens services from building a playground at the Immokalee Child Care Center, to funding therapists at Catholic Charities for victims of sexual assault and familial sexual abuse, to grants for early learning at Guadalupe Center and through the Immokalee Early Learning Initiative, NCEF trustee and wine festival co-chair Cynthia Sherman said. In addition, grants totaling $2.14 million were awarded for multi-year, strategic initiatives aimed at fighting hunger, addressing behavioral health issues and increasing capacity and access to quality early learning programs. Trustee Anne Welsh McNulty said a research study was key in determining grant allocations for this year and beyond. Conducted by the University of Floridas Lastinger Center for Learning and commissioned by NCEF, the study showed progress made in serving childrens medical and dental needs. It also revealed huge spikes in childrens hunger and homelessness due to the economy, and showed that mental health and outof-school needs remain critical. Theres lots more to be done, Ms. McNulty said. NCEFs Lunch Boxes of Love initiative to end childhood hunger in Collier County was funded through a special auction lot at the January wine festival. The program utilizes a mobile pantry to provide nutritious meals for children and their families. The foundation is also working on a permanent improvement to the food distribution system in the county for children in need. This initiative will reach 50,000 to 60,000 children over three years more than any other single NCEF initiative, said Robert Scott, NCEF trustee and board chair. NCEFs H.U.G.S. initiative, which got under way after a fund-a-need lot at the 2010 festival raised more than $600,000, is beginning to make inroads. Collaboratively run by several organizations, H.U.G.S. screens children for early identification of mental health issues and provides intervention. The initiative also spearheads a campaign to wipe out the stigma attached to mental illness. In addition to the check presentations, the celebratory afternoon for 300 guests in the Garden included a mini-food festival presented by 11 Naples Originals restaurants. Guests also enjoyed wine from the 2011 Naples Winter Wine Festival.Through the festival, NCEF has raised more than $94.5 million since 2001, and proceeds have impacted more than 125,000 children through a total of 37 charities. The 2012 Naples Winter Wine Festival will take place Jan. 27-29. For more information, call (888) 837-4919 or visit www.

Barfield Drive on Marco Island. 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, at St. William Catholic Church, 750 Seagate Drive in Naples. 2 p.m. Good Friday, April 22, at Moorings Presbyterian Church, 791 Harbour Drive in Naples. The oratorio is performed without intermission or applause so as not to disrupt the mood that begins with the overture. The work is sung in the original Latin with the words printed in English in the program. Each section is introduced, usually by a member of the clergy. Good will offerings are welcome.Tenor John Ostrowski, general manager of the orchestra and chorus, describes the program as an augmentation to the preparation for Easter rather than a typical concert performance... It is an integral part of the churches Holy Week observance.Robert Herrema, NOC conductor and music director, first played The Seven Last Words of Christ as a high school senior, for his church. He conducted the entire cantata as a college student. I have made it an annual ritual during Holy Week to sit down, with score in hand, to listen to a recording, of the works, he says, adding, It is a privilege to conduct these pieces with such a wonderful and dedicated group of community musicians. The Holy Week tradition for the NOC started 17 years ago with one performance at St. William Catholic Church and has grown from there. In other NOC news, the following members have been elected to the organizations board of directors: Marischen Nordmeyer, Clint Holland, Ann Hoffman, Marilyn Bogen, Dorothy Johnson, Cindy Swirarski, Ann Wilson, William Mears, John Ostrowski, Allia Darlena and Bill McKinney.

It is the subject of a WGCU-TV documentary, CREW: Keepers of the Watershed, that premieres at 9 p.m. Thursday, April 21, as part of WGCU Public Medias series titled Water The Lifeblood of Southwest Florida. CREW is about 18 miles east of I-75 off Corkscrew Road. Its importance was realized after the National Audubon Society established Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in 1954. To protect the sanctuarys virgin cypress swamp from degradation by the encroachment of development, the South Florida Water Management District initiated an ambitious land acquisition project in the early 1980s. Before long, a unique consortium of environmentalists, government agencies, landowners, developers and private citizens had come together to manage the CREW Land & Water Trust. While school field trips and adventure campers seek out the wilderness for environmental education and primal experience on terra firma, two of the regions most productive water storage resources the Sandstone and Tamiami aquifers remain protected underground. CREW: Keepers of the Watershed was written, produced and narrated by Rod Clarke. It is the first part of a two-part series exploring CREW, with the second part set to premiere in June.

PAGE 33 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA34 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2011 HEALTHY LIVING It might be among the most common of commonsense things to do, but washing our hands is essential if we are to be superior health care providers. And Because We Care (our new campaign slogan), we are recommitted to making hand hygiene a No. 1 priority at NCH. According to the respected Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hand hygiene is the most important strategy to prevent the transmission of germs in any environment, and particularly in hospitals. Thus, we chose hand hygiene as our focus going forward to align ourselves with the Joint Commissions National Patient Safety program. The 2011 Proactive Risk Assessment will engage us in hand hygiene compliance initiatives because this simple technique lies at the heart of decreasing hospital-acquired infections. R.N. Kathleen Kohut, our director of infection prevention, recognizes avoiding an infection is always preferable for our patients. The Infection Prevention Department utilizes strict measurable o utcomes to monitor all infection prevention efforts, including washing our hands. Recently, I watched R.N. Cheryl Bullaro on the 5 South Rehab Unit washing her hands for what seemed to me to be a long time. Then she reminded me that proper technique takes about 30 seconds with both soap and water. To make sure she takes enough time, she told me she sings the alphabet song to herself as she washes. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is a time saver and can be found next to almost every doorpost in the clinical areas. At NCH, it will soon be replaced by a new foam product. Experienced 5 South charge nurse Mindy Henderson said she advises new nurses taking the nursing certification exam that if one of the question choices is to first wash your hands, that is most likely the correct answer. We recently launched our new Got Foam? campaign logo, held prize drawings and nominated three colleagues as NCH Hand Hygiene Heroes: Mother & Baby R.N. May Robinson, North Naples ER physician Dr. Carolyn Walters and cardio vascular radiologic technologist Linda Cavin. Having fun is all part of serving our patients well. One nurse who is definitely having fun is 5 South L.P.N. Jennifer Miller, whose distinctive fashion statement of brightly colored scrub pants has proved a big hit with patients and colleagues. Heres what one of Ms. Millers colleagues, Sue Graziano, wrote to me: (Jennifers) scrub wear kind of goes with our Compassion in Action program launched this month on CRC. Preliminary outcomes in terms of pain management, improving sleep quality and reducing edema in the surgical extremities have been extremely positive. Our program consists of providing complementary therapies to our patients such as massage, aromatherapy and spa-like music therapy. Our staff members received formal training and once credentialed are able to provide these therapies to our patients. Our clinical tech staff love it, and Jamie LaChance has been our lead relaxation therapist. Patients and their family love this program as well. Brightly colored scrubs? Aromatherapy? Spa-like music? Diligent hand-washing by all as we care for patients? Welcome to 21st century health care delivered by our talented and dedicated NCH colleagues.

Scheduled for completion in February 2012, Park Royal Hospital will be licensed for 76 inpatient beds and include several outpatient programs for adults ages 18 and older. A special focus will be on geriatric services for Southwest Floridas aging population. The 72,200-square-foot hospital will be on the campus of HealthPark Medical Center in south Lee County. Park Royal Hospitals parent company has been partnering with Lee Memorial Health System in operating the Senior Behavioral Health Center at Lee Memorial Hospital, a 15-bed psychiatric unit for geriatric patients. The fact that the unit is consistently full points to the demand for services for the elderly, says Jim Harper, president of Park Royal Hospital. We are humbled to be at this significant event as the result of many other community leaders who understood the need and trusted our ability to help bring this hospital here. Park Royal also operates the Intensive Outpatient Behavioral Health Center for patients requiring intensive followup services and the Outpatient Behavioral Health Center for those requiring less intense services. Park Royal has proven to be a dynamic partner in providing behavioral health services in Southwest Florida, says Jim Nathan, president and CEO of Lee Memorial Health System. We are very pleased they will be at the helm as we take the next step in providing services with the completion of Park Royal Hospital.

Pet owners sometimes release unwanted exotic animals into the wild, considering it an act of kindness. But Floridas environment and economy pay a hefty price if these creatures thrive and reproduce. Introduced species can eat native animals and plants, damage property, pose human health risks and require costly management efforts. The lionfish, Burmese python and monk parakeet have all made headlines for wreaking havoc, and some of the specimens were probably released by pet owners. The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences has a free brochure that describes humane, responsible alternatives for people with pets they cant manage or no longer want. Titled Options for Unwanted Exotic Pets, its available online at A lot of folks might not be aware that they have options, or that help is available, says author Steve Johnson, an associate professor in UFs wildlife ecology and conservation department. Were hoping to change that. The brochure outlines several options for pet owners. They include learning more about caring for the animal, finding a new home for it, returning it to the seller and contacting government or volunteer agencies. The brochure also lists several websites that provide geographically indexed directories to pet rescue groups, animal shelters, exotic pet veterinarians, animal sanctuaries that can provide referrals, advice or possibly a new home. It also has a link to listings for pet amnesty days where the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission accepts exotic animals and attempts to place them with new owners. In Florida, releasing non-native animals is prohibited by law, Mr. Johnson adds. Whats more, its inhumane pets from other parts of the world could die from starvation or exposure in Floridas outdoors. The species that become established are the exceptions, he says, though Florida currently hosts breeding populations of about 140 non-native vertebrate species. Fr ee online brochur e explains options for u nw anted exotic petsVi at Bentley Village hosts Senior Pet Adoption Day on Tuesday, April 19, to raise awareness about the increasing need to find homes for older pets. Representatives from the Humane Society of Naples will attend and bring older dogs and cats available for adoption from the shelter. Quite often, senior pets make the very best pets: They have been trained and socialized, understand house rules and the importance of getting along with everyone, and have the self confidence and control that comes with maturity, says Stephen Wright of HSN. Unlike a puppy or kitten, a senior pets personality doesnt change with age; it stays the same as the day you adopted it, he adds. Senior pets might sleep a little more than when they were kids, but they can still be active and vibrant. Typically, senior pets are more difficult to adopt out because of misconceptions about older animals.Vi at Bentley Village in North Naples is a very pet friendly community, so partnering with the humane society for this event makes perfect sense, says Marjorie Johnson, community relations director for the retirement community. HSN promotes the adoption of senior pets, in particular senior cats, by offering free adoptions.

ROBIN DOWNING__________________________Special to Florida Weeklying becomes important. If, for instance, a dog is used to walking or running every day with his owner and then develops the progressive weakness of degenerative myelopathy, a walking wheelchair is a great choice. The walking wheelchair design allows a dog to continue to use his rear legs without having to support his full weight, thus delaying the progression of the weakness. Once the weakness has progressed to paralysis of the rear limbs, the walking/running activity can be maintained simply by suspending the feet so they do not drag on the ground. Wheelchairs that support all four legs are also available, as are wheelchairs custombuilt for animals that have lost limbs or were born without limbs. Slings allow pets to be supported in a simple fashion that also allows the pet owner to maintain good ergonomics. This decreases the risk of a back injury to an owner from lifting the pet inappropriately. And a sling allows the pet to move himself rather than simply being carried around, thus sustaining part of his personal independence. There are now custom braces and prosthetic devices available for pets. If a limb has a joint injury that cannot be repaired, a brace may replace the action of the damaged joint, thus restoring mobility. Likewise, if part of a foot or leg has been amputated, removable prosthetics can be manufactured to serve in their stead. Fortunately, when four legs arent enough, pets have many options for sustaining and maintaining their active lifestyles. Adaptation to a mobility-limiting condition is restricted only by our imaginations as pet owners. Times have changed for the better, and our beloved animal companions are the beneficiaries. Loss of mobility no longer a death sentence for pets The pet may be paralyzed rather than simply weak. Paralysis can occur from trauma to the spinal cord or from a progressive disease like degenerative myelopathy. The pet may have an issue, such as a torn cranial cruciate ligament in the knee (rear leg), causing instability in that joint. If surgery to stabilize the knee is not affordable or not an option for some other reason, the pet will be incapable of walking comfortably without an assistive device. Amputation of a limb (or part of a limb) may render the pet incapable of normal mobility. The mobility challenge may result from a nervous system issue, such as a stroke to the brain or spinal cord. So, what is a loving pet owner to do? Any pet facing a mobility challenge, no matter how slight or severe, deserves to have a thorough veterinary evaluation to ensure that if pain is present, it is treated appropriately. Next, examine the pets lifestyle and activities up to the time of the mobility issue. This is where creative thinkWhen Frankie was hit by a car on the streets of Denver, two vertebrae in his midback were shattered, and his spinal cord was crushed. At that moment he became a permanent paraplegic, never to walk normally again. In times past, he would have been euthanized. Fortunately for Frankie and for other pets with special needs times have changed. No longer are mobility issues an impediment to an excellent quality of life. In fact, dogs and cats and even unusual pets such as rabbits and ferrets can be fitted for assistive devices that allow them to sustain the activities theyve become accustomed to. Pet owners can be taught how to manage their pets bodily functions. And the pets themselves can easily be taught to accept the use of the various assistive devices that are currently available. Mobility challenges come in many guises: The pet may be too weak to walk. It is critical to get as complete a diagnosis as possible from the pets veterinarian because some pets are weak from pain. Once the pain is managed appropriately, the pet may be restored to normal mobility. It is also possible to have pain AND weakness coexisting in the same body. In this case, relieving pain remains a priority, which will allow the use of assistive devices with maximum pet comfort.PET TALES On the move Pets of the Week >> Bonnie likes to greet admirers by bumping her forehead on theirs!

No need explaining the one remaining.... Mort Dixon ...and with ah! bright wings. Gerard Manley Hopkins What a world....What a world.... Wicked Witch of West OzNegation is often this first glimmering of an emerging reality. I never thought of that. Then formerly and formally some non-existent is a foregone conclusion, becoming foremost in mind. Some inexpressible, indistinguishable mindless schwa ease grows wings, radiates, and takes form in the forum. Quorum established, will this nascent paradigmatic anomaly be appropriately swallowed, again engulfed in a sweaty surround of sensibility? Or, perhaps more tragically, will there be attempts to rediscover the unrecoverable mystery? Forget the glass half full and half empty: Merely shatter the glass. And forget the romance of empty vessels and roads not taken and hallowed hollows. After all, our astrologers tell us we are in Mercury retrograde. From March 30 until April 23, it will seem as if Mercury has stopped and reversed direction. We are cautioned not to begin new projects or venture into new territory. We are advised to stay put, to be still. Only write. But its not just Mercury. All the planets seem to switch direction. Until Copernicus negated the notion of the earth as center of the universe people believed that what seemed to be happening, the visually given, was real. Now we are certain that the reality is that planets perpetually orbit in the same direction. Even if it doesnt look that way. And what about this pirates orbit? After all, Rx, R with a tail stroke, is the astrological symbol for retrograde planetary movement. It is also an abbreviation for medical prescription, recipe, and the responses in missals. All this comes from the Latin imperative meaning to take. We are taking it in. Retro might have a negative connotation, a sense of degenerating into the past, of being old-fashioned and backward. Taking might also be criticized. But is it really so simple? In logic, there is a notion called vacuous truth. This is an assertion that something is true of all members of an empty set. It is a truth that is devoid of content. Yet, even here there can be a problem. Suppose we say that all pink elephants are carnivores. That is vacuously true, since there are no pink elephants. Whatever we say about them is true like this. But what if we say that all pink elephants are herbivores? That is also vacuously true. Does one vacuous truth make another a lie? Never mind all this and that. Listen: At the end of a path there is a most amazing and wonderful garden. In that garden is a Greek column. It is Doric, Ionic and Corinthian.

MONEY & INVESTINGBubbles versus bull marketsA bull market is not necessarily a bubble.A bull market can morph into a bubble, and its not uncommon for a market that has seen meaningful appreciation for many years to take on a parabolic rise in prices in the last stages of its bull run. An example of a bull turning into a bubble is NASDAQ, which saw much appreciation in the 1990s and in the 3 years prior to its peak in 2000, rose an astounding 2 times. Bubbles burst; they always burst. And as in the case of NASDAQ, it gave back its 3-year appreciation in the ensuing 2 years. Fast money up; faster money lost going down. Bull markets are viewed as positive for the investor and the economy. They are manageable; they do not necessarily create distortions or dislocations within an economy. On the other hand, asset or investment bubbles can have huge impacts on any investors portfolio and on any countrys economic well-being. A huge positive shift is good but, upon bursting, a huge shift toward the negative is bad. To say bubbles dont exist or wont ever happen again is to deny the reality of the past 11 years. In such time, we have had a tech stock, a U.S. housing and an international credit bubble. Bulls and bubbles are very much on experienced investors minds as the world is awash with fiat currencies (especially the U.S. dollar) and people are searching for a safe haven other than U.S. cash equivalents. There is constant and increasing speculation that the U.S. dollar will lose its reserve currency status. In that case, investors want to be holding assets that do not devalue with the dollar and that might well include foreign equities, U.S. equities, commodities and non-U.S. currencies. Investment bubbles offer huge moneymaking and losing opportunities. In its last stages of meteoric rise, the curve is often hyperbolic but is followed by a vertical free fall. Obviously, the investment dream is to have bought the asset at a low point and sell at the high and, even better, to sell short at the high just before the bubble bursts. Investment fairy tales are made of such things. But participation in portions of the rise and shorting for portions of the decline might be better strategies. Sometimes its hard to perceive a bubble until after the bursting. For instance, the U.S. housing bubble seemed to benefit all; all seemed to be participating; almost all became believers. Houses were: the American dream; perceived as a safe asset class; and mortgage financing requirements were thought to safeguard against speculation. Are investment advisers well prepared for bubbles? Do they easily discern between bulls and bubbles? Do they employ money management techniques to prevent disastrous consequences of a burst bubble? Best I can recall, there was no such finance course in my MBA program; there were loads of classes about how markets drive out excesses, both over or under valuations, but nothing about how to handle portfolios when they enter irrational exuberance, Alan Greenspans description of the tech bubble before it burst. Devotees of A Random Walk Down Wall Street (and its efficient market theory) understand how bull markets come about but might find it very hard to factor bubbles into their efficient pricing theories. When a market is efficient, (the underlying premise of a bull), bizarrely incorrect valuations really dont happen. But, in fact, in the past 11 years, the world has seen two massive bubbles in the U.S and one colossal international bubble (credit individual, municipal and country credit bubbles). How is an investment bubble made? (1) something fundamental happens that causes diminished supply or increased demand (or both) for an asset; (2) the price of the asset moves upward; (3) investors/speculators put more money into the asset; (4) the assets increased liquidity and transparency in pricing allows bankers to finance more easily and willingly. Somewhere along this continuum, the bull market starts to look more akin to a mania. So, (5 ) the cycle continues on and on until the underlying fundamentals have stopped being relevant and the asset begins to trade based solely on its capital appreciation possibilities. And then ba-boom! The bust. What bubbles are out there right now? Gold, you say? Very possibly not. As a percentage of the worlds investment portfolios holdings, gold is currently .6 percent; the peak percentage was in 1968 at 4.8 percent. Gold is being considered as a currency of first resort. Gold might well be in the incipient stages of a dramatically longer bull market. Commodities? Per Jim Rogers, a worldwide recognized commodity professional, food commodity prices have a long way yet to run. Food is in short supply; the mania is not being fabricated when people in third world countries are rioting in the streets for food and protesting its high prices. What about equities? Theyre up 70 percent from their low, sure, but but many international and domestic managers view equities as a way to hedge against what they perceive to be strong inflation around the bend. What is an investor to do? First, be well exposed to all asset classes, beyond equities and fixed income. And before you label an asset class as a bubble, take a moment to consider if it really is a secular bull market. Second, use money management techniques to protect your gains in bubbly assets. A simplistic and well serving rule is: Cut your losses and let your profits run. Third, you might want to consider ways to participate in assets (equities, commodities, currencies, farmland, timberland, etc.) that are appreciating in value, all the while employing various money management techniques, either human or computer, to limit losses and maximize gains. There is a substantial risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options and off-exchange foreign currency products. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

PAGE 45 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2011 television set to smithereens with a round fired from a .357 Magnum simply because he no longer could tolerate the sight of Robert Goulet. Billy Fuccillo can work on your psyche in that very same way. When first subjected to his Kia commercials, I groaned and prayed it was merely an initial, intense salvo of publicity and that this Car Salesman from Hell would shortly recede into the shadows. No one, I assumed, could maintain such a sustained barrage of cheesy advertising. Boy, was I wrong. Day after day, almost as though on a continuing loop, Billy and his fetching blonde sidekick (identified only as Caroline) showed up on my television screen, pleading, cajoling and beseeching me to buy a Kia. My own automobile offered no sanctuary, either, as Mr. Fuccillos radio ads screamed from every station and radiated over the breadth of Southwest Florida. But something strange happened along the way. The more I was exposed to Mr. Fuccillos onslaught, the more I began to anticipate and, dare I say, even appreciate the absurdity of those quirky little 30-second bits of insanity, which are shot on location at his Cape Coral lot. What would he say next? (My favorite assertion to date is that Kia is the car of the Lord.) Would he and Caroline ever change their clothes? Would Billy truly lose it and flame out on camera? In a bizarre way, Mr. Fuccillos bellowing presence became a comforting constant in a world devoid of constancy. I began to speculate about how outrageous the next offering might be. Soon, I was ranking the damn things on a scale of one to 10. Little by little, I found myself drawn into the weird world of Billy Fuccillo. Many times, Mr. Fuccillo is pictured in his commercials on the telephone, supposedly in the process of berating some stone-hearted banker into providing affordable financing for one of his downtrodden but deserving customers. But mostly he banters about how many cars he has and how many he needs to sell, as Caroline attempts to get in a word during his high-decibel tirade. If you live anywhere in Southwest Florida and have access to a television set or a radio, you surely are acquainted with Mr. Fuccillo. If you happen to be from New York, then you know him from way back, for that is the center of his automotive empire, and he has flooded the airwaves there for years. He played football as a reserve tight end at Syracuse University, where he earned a degree in 1978 in (guess what?) marketing (his professors like Dr. Frankenstein must wonder what they wrought and set loose on an unsuspecting world). He secured a job as a car salesman not long after leaving school. In 1989, he cobbled together enough cash and financing to open a Dodge dealership in Adams, N.Y., the home base for Fuccillo Automotive Group. From that unremarkable beginning, his business has grown at an exponential pace. The company today employs about 1,500 people. The foundation of his automotive empire is his aggressive, in-your-face style of promotion.Quantity, not quality Mr. Fuccillo, who late last year opened his dealership in Cape Coral, is a hulking, banana-nosed pitchman who concludes his commercials with his trademark promise that everything at his place of business is HUUUUUGE! The production quality of these commercials is something along the lines of the video Aunt Edna and Uncle Joe shot on their visit to the Grand Canyon. Quantity, not quality, is what makes Mr. Fuccillos media assault such a sensation and, apparently, so effective. In a telephone interview from his New York office, Mr. Fuccillo told me he shells out somewhere in the neighborhood of $30 million on advertising annually. Despite the huge cash outlay, he tries to keep the time involved in producing his commercials to a minimum. If I do a retake, its very, very rare, he said in an interview last year with The Business Review of Albany, N.Y. Even if we foul it up, we just blow it off. Anyone who has seen even a couple of Mr. Fuccillos spots knows he speaks the truth on that score. But dont let his cartoonish persona mislead you. Mr. Fuccillo is no ones fool not by a long shot. In 2009 and 2010, he operated the number one Kia dealership in the country in Schenectady, N.Y., and was tapped for Kias Presidents Club in both years. Only 15 dealers nationwide made the club, which is based on sales volume and customer service. Mr. Fuccillo operates 22 dealerships all of which, save for the Southwest Florida operation, are in New York. He says he landed in Cape Coral because Kia desired a presence there, and the company wanted someone with a proven track record to operate the dealership. I checked the area out, and it fit our business, he said. We dont like places that are too affluent or areas that are on the other end (of the economic scale). We like to be in the middle of the road. He purchased the former Saturn of Cape Coral building, which encompasses roughly 20,500 square feet, and converted it into his Kia dealership. The Saturn dealership had folded when General Motors discontinued the line. While setting up the business here, he bought a home in Cape Coral. In true Billy Fuccillo style, he then ran a promotional contest back in New York in which the grand prize was a new automobile and the Cape Coral home. There were more than 10,000 contest entries, and the winner was a schoolteacher in Syracuse. The three-bedroom home and the automobile were said to be valued at about $150,000.Everything in a big wayAs one would surmise from his commercials, Mr. Fuccillo is not about doing things small. Everything is HUUUUUGE! Hes no stranger to racetracks, and keeps a small stable of thoroughbreds. Hes also an unabashed gourmand, which is evident from his girth. Indeed, in many of his commercials he waxes longingly about his favorite restaurants in Southwest Florida. In one spot, he notes that he must be careful about entering Blue Martini, which he says ensnares him like quicksand. Perhaps his most cherished personal possession is his Lear jet, which he purchased for $13.2 million in 2004 and has HUGE emblazoned on its fuselage. He now has his eye on a new, larger aircraft a Dassault Falcon 2000, which he says would allow more of his corporate staff to travel with him. The Falcon 2000 costs $32.5 million, according to Mr. Fuccillo, who makes the asking price sound like a bargain. Mr. Fuccillo readily acknowledges that his style of salesmanship is not for everyone. If you want to get a taste of the antipathy that he provokes, peruse the comments on Facebooks Billy Fuccillo is the most annoying human being on Earth page. The following are some of the milder (and hence printable) verbal darts thrown at Mr. Fuccillo: Id rather buy a car from Charles Manson. Someone, anyone, just please punch him in the face. I hear his damn commercials almost every 10 minutes! Cant the man just lose his voice for good? He is a Huge annoyance. I cringe when I see these commercials. He is disgusting. Mr. Fuccillo said he was unaware of this Facebook page, and frankly couldnt care less what is posted there. I cant even turn on a computer, he said. What do I know about Facebook? Besides, why should he give two hoots in hell? As he put it: Maybe they dont love me, but the zeroes still keep adding up in my checkbook. Still, even Mr. Fuccillos own mother bristles when he appears on air. She mutes me, he admitted in his interview with The Business Review. Liking the commercials seems to be beside the point and, in the end, almost irrelevant. They draw attention and you remember them which, after all, is the principal point of any advertising.A big soft side, tooIn one sense, the advertising is misleading since it depicts Mr. Fuccillo as something of a shallow blowhard, which is at odds with his long track record of good works. He donates generously to pediatric cancer treatment and research and to the Catholic Church. He has been known to give aid to total strangers who have been struck by tragedy and whose stories have stirred him. One automotive blogger acknowledged this gentler side of bombastic Billy when he wrote: Whenever I think of cars, I think Fuccillo. Whenever I think of large, unshaven men who yell a lot, I think Fuccillo. Whenever I think of who I want the godfather of my first child to be, I think Fuccillo.About CarolineAs with any cult figure, devoted followers and detractors dissect almost every aspect of the man and his advertising. The identity of Caroline has been the subject of much speculation. Some suspected she was his daughter or his niece or perhaps something a bit more racy. As it turns out, the answer is none of the above. In an online posting, a writer at the Albany Times-Union noted that the newspapers latest fixation was Carolines identity. The writer doggedly pursued the mystery. Ive called Billys office and left two messages over the past three weeks, she wrote, but he hasnt called back. Undeterred, the writer eventually identified Caroline through a talent agency and reported that her full name is Caroline Renfro, and she has a background as a professional spokesperson with a number of companies. Mr. Fuccillo apparently spotted her doing commercials for a Kia dealership in North Carolina.No. 1 in the countryJust three months after its opening, Mr. Fuccillos Cape Coral operation ranks No. 1 in sales among Kias 730 dealerships nationwide. According to Mr. Fuccillo, We sold 587 new cars last month, which almost doubled the number sold by Kias second-leading dealership, located in Cleveland. Things are going so swimmingly, in fact, that last week Mr. Fuccillo closed the dealership for four days and told his 100 or so employees to go have some fun with their families. They had worked 34 straight days without a break; they deserved it. Mr. Fuccillo did not bother to inform Kia of this development, however, and during the hiatus, the company attempted to deliver a shipment of automobiles to the dealership, which was locked down tight when the trucks rolled up. (Kias facility in Atlanta) called me and wanted to know what was going on, Mr. Fuccillo said jovially. I told em I closed the place down for four days to give my people some time off. They thought I was crazy, and Im not sure they were real happy. But what are you going to do to the guy who sells more of your cars than anyone else? It seems safe to assume that Billy Fuccillo will not be leaving Southwest Florida anytime soon. That, of course, means more commercials (lots more commercials). And more repartee with Caroline. And, as always, whatever he does on screen or off will be HUUUUUGE! So brace yourself, and if you are among the legion driven to absolute distraction by Mr. Fuccillos caterwauling, heres some advice: Familiarize yourself with the m ute button on your remote, and should you own a .357 Magnum, please store it under lock and key in a place far removed from your television set. I checked the area out, and it fit our business. We dont like places that are too affluent or areas that are on the other end (of the economic scale). We like to be in the middle of the road.

Hone your financial literacy with this mini-glossary. Aggressive growth fund: A mutual fund that seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in stocks of fastgrowing smaller companies or narrow market segments, such as the technology sector or Internet stocks. Asset classes: The three main ones are cash (also called cash reserves, money market instruments, or moolah), bonds and stocks. Basis point: most often used relating to changes in interest rates. One basis point is 1/100 of a percentage point. Capital gain/loss: The difference between the price at which an asset is sold and its original purchase price (or basis). C ommodities: Goods, with little differentiation between producers, such as wheat, crude oil, soybeans, silver, gold, beef, coffee and pork bellies, that are traded in large amounts on an exchange. Cost basis: The original price paid for De ning terms 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. Paper profits Q What are unrealized gains? L.H., Shenandoah, IowaA When you sell an investment, you usually realize a gain or loss. If, for example, you buy stock in Roadrunner Industries (ticker: BEEEP) at $25 per share and then sell it a few years later at $36, youll have a realized gain of $11 per share (less commission costs). Meanwhile, perhaps you bought shares of Acme Explosives Co. (ticker: KBOOM) at $45 apiece and theyre now at $55. If you havent sold any shares, youve got an unrealized gain (or paper profit) of $10 per share. Its your profit in theory only: Since you havent actually sold the holding, you havent actually realized the gain.Q What do chief financial officers do? G.S., Keene, N.H.A A companys chief financial officer (CFO), such as Hewlett-Packards Catherine Lesjak, Morgan Stanleys Ruth Porat and U.S. Steels Gretchen Haggerty, is responsible for all things financial at the firm. These include determining what its financial needs are and will be, deciding how best to finance those needs, and informing all stakeholders (investors, creditors, analysts, employees, management) of the firms financial condition. The CFO is also focused on creating and maintaining the best mix of internal cash, debt financing and stock financing for the company (this is known as a firms capital structure). The CFO plans and oversees the forecasting and budgeting process, monitors all cash flow, maintains relationships with funding sources such as commercial and investment banks, and oversees the process of developing and communicating the quarterly and annual financial statements. Finally, the CFO has ultimate accountability for maintaining the books and records of the company, ensuring that the companys assets are protected.Got a question for the Fool?

Derivative: A financial contract whose value is determined by (or derived from) the value of another security, such as stocks, bonds, commodities or a market index (such as the S&P 500). The most common types of derivatives are options, futures and mortgage-backed securities. Free cash flow: The cash thats left over after everything bills from suppliers, salaries, expenses for the annual holiday bash, new equipment to expand the business is accounted for. Theoretically, free cash flow is the amount of cash a business could issue to shareholders in the form of a dividend check. Gross Domestic Product (GDP): The value of all goods and services provided within the borders of a nation. In the United States, GDP is determined quarterly by the Department of Commerce. No-load fund: A mutual fund that does not charge a sales commission. Securities: A fancy name for shares of stock, bonds, or any kind of financial asset that can be traded. I purchased a company at $0.75 per shar e w hen it debuted on the market via an IPO (initial public offering). Its now around $0.03, and Im seeing recommendations to buy it. Is it a good idea to purchase additional shares now to correct my original entry into this stock? I feel stupid for having bought into this. Help! R.D., onlineThe Fool Responds: First off, stocks trading for less than $5 or so per share are penny stocks, notoriously risky and easily manipulated to fleece naive investors. People think that theyre bargains due to their seemingly low prices, but even at 10 cents per share, they may be wildly overvalued. That $0.03 price might look great now, but since you wrote us, the stock has fallen pretty much to $0. Its a common instinct to want to make up your loss in a bad stock by either waiting for a turnaround or by buying more shares at a lower price. Dont do that. Its better to sell, take whats left, and try to make up the loss in a different, better stock. Focus on quality. The Motley Fool TakeCisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO) has announced its first-ever cash dividend: $0.06 to be paid quarterly. Cigars for everyone! That translates to an annual dividend yield of about 1.4 percent at the recent share price. With roughly 5.5 billion shares outstanding, it will cost Cisco about $1.3 billion per year, just under 15 percent of its free cash flow in 2010. Considering that Cisco already spent some $9 billion over the last 12 months to buy back its own shares, it seems quite committed to returning value to shareholders.

Thus, the total share count has been falling, leaving remaining shares more valuable. Other major technology companies are following a similar model, spending more on buybacks than on dividends. This makes sense as long as a companys stock is actually undervalued otherwise overpaying for the shares is wasteful. The model also offers flexibility in times of need. While cutting back on established dividends is frowned upon, reining in buybacks is not such a red flag. Ciscos current yield isnt big enough to make it an income-generating powerhouse today, but that could change with steady raises over the years, or a blow to the underlying stock price.

REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY B11WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2011 Customers who visit the new WCI Design Studio can see and touch the finishing details for their new home. At 24301 Walden Center Drive in Bonita Springs, the home design center is a one-stop destination for buyers to select everything from cabinetry, countertops, bath and kitchen fixtures to tile and flooring. People who buy in one of our communities visit the design center and make all their selections here instead of driving from one specialty store to another, says Jason Wyrick, vice president of purchasing for WCI Communities. The center offers a variety of designs and material choices everything our buyers need to make their new home reflect their personalities. The studio features Moen faucets, Merrilat and Masterpiece cabinetry by Masco, Schlage door hardware, International Tile & Stone flooring and Whirlpool appliances. The WCI Design Studio serves clients who have purchased new in Naples at Tiburns newly opened Marquesa Royale and Manchester Square, WCIs newest community, as well as at Pelican Preserve in Fort Myers. The centers staff is available by appointment. WCI Communities master-planned lifestyle communities offers traditional single-family and multi-family home choices with prices from the mid$100,000s to just under $1 million. WCI Communities now offers residents and members golf privileges and ne dining at the countrys top private golf courses and dinner clubs, made possible by a partnership with ClubCorp. The arrangement provides members and residents complimentary play at 140 country clubs and free four-course meals at more than 65 private restaurants, including Chicagos famed Metropolitan Club, City Club on Bunker Hill in Los Angeles and the landmark 21 club in New York City. ClubCorps Signature Gold membership program is ideal for those who travel for leisure golf or business trips, says Jim Magnusson, marketing and sales director for the amenities division of WCI. In addition to ClubCorps waiving enrollment fees for WCI resident, the Signature Gold network waives greens fees and the price of a meal for two. Golfers pay for cart use; diners pay beverage, tax and tip for meals. Members can enjoy two rounds of golf and two dining experiences per month. Members simply log onto ClubCorps website and click onto the market they will visit. A list of member clubs pops open, and a link allows them to make golf or dinner reservations. The golf clubs on ClubCorps list are among the best in the United States, Mr. Magnusson says. We have members already planning trips to play golf in Palm Springs, Myrtle Beach and Scottsdale. Dining clubs are in downtown metro areas, he adds. ClubCorp members who do not live in Southwest Florida now can sample the golf and dining experiences at WCIs clubs in the region, including Tiburn and Hammock Bay golf clubs in Naples and Pelican Preserve in Fort Myers.

His mother took him to the Akron Art Institute to see an exhibit of Chuck Close paintings and Duane Hanson sculptures. It was a Chuck Close portrait of a lady, and (it was so big) you could see the pores on her face, he recalls. The piece was like 10 feet high And Duane Hanson (with his lifesized sculpture of) a chubby lady in curlers in the mumu. These people were scattered all around the gallery. It was the coolest thing Id ever seen in my life. In retrospect, he realizes it was a pivotal moment for him. In my journey in art, that was one of those moments that changed me, he says. Now Mr. Riemenschneider is celebrating another milestone: his one-man One thing that quickly becomes apparent in listening to Yannis new CD, The Truth of Touch, is that with several songs, this isnt the same lush and pastoral music that prompted many to call him an originator of new age music. Voyager, Flash of Color and especially Vertigo display a new rhythmic heft that Yanni, who performs at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts at 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, has rarely brought to his music. Yes, its very dominant, he says. The rhythmic content of the album is definitely more assertive, a little more Westernized than I normally do. I just felt like it. It was time. I just wanted to kick some butt. Can you print that? Just did, actually. But dont panic, Yanni fans. Kicking butt Yanni-style is a far kinder and gentler proposition than kicking butt in a Metallica sort of way.

What would you tell your 20-something self if you could talk to her now? she asked. Stop worrying about whether youre fat, the columnist wrote. Youre not fat. Or rather, youre sometimes a little bit fat, but who (cares)? There is nothing more boring and fruitless than a woman lamenting the fact that her stomach is round. Feed yourself. Literally. The sort of people worthy of your love will love you more for this, sweet pea. Like most people, I have hordes of complexes, but my body has stayed out of my realm of worries. There is such complexity to the female form, such variation of height, size and constitution that it seems like wasted effort to worry about what we might or might not have. Plus, my body has been the same for years. Sure, I put on a pound or two in my freshman year of college a minor version of the freshman 15 and Ive lost a few pounds dur-Working on my jaay fond SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artisHENDERSON Its because Im getting fat, I joked. He nodded, very serious. You are, he said. But it looks nice on moments of crisis, regular gym attendance or my brief vegetarian phase, but on the whole, my body has remained unchanged. All this to say I was surprised by a certain roundness that came over me during a recent stint abroad. I had been sick for weeks, wracked with the kind of intestinal troubles that turn a persons guts inside out. Id come off these episodes weak and emaciated, as if I had squandered all of my body fat reserves. Then, between bouts of fever and vomiting, Id eat. Rice. Bread. Sticks of butter. I ate chicken cooked in palm oil and sandwiches slathered with mayonnaise. When my friends worried about our rich diet, I waved off their concerns. My body never changes, I said. But then my system adjusted to the local environment. I stopped spending my nights hunched over the toilet bowl. I still ate. After three months, I developed a fine, round posterior. A jaay fond in local parlance. A big booty. I noticed a thickness not just in my butt, but everywhere. My arms felt heavier. My bosom took on a certain weight. My belly curved out in a way it hadnt before, and I could pinch the fat around my waist in solid handfuls.In the midst of this sudden corpulence, I made plans to see a former colleague. I found a pair of trousers in the back of my closet, pants I had not worn for months. I managed to hike them up my thighs, and it took a lot of tugging to get them over the hump of my backside. But a 3-inch gap stretched across my stomach, and I knew the butt on would never reach the buttonhole on the other side of my wide, white belly. I put on a dress instead.My colleague smiled when he saw me. You look good, he said. He squeezed my elbow. Better than before. Its because Im getting fat, I joked. He nodded, very serious. You are, he said. But it looks nice on you.Well. At least theres that. Heres to the jaay fond lovers of the world. e ague.

PAGE 74 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2011 show of oil paintings at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers. Titled America and touted as a collection of large-scale portraits that depict the beauty and complexity of the everyday man, the exhibit runs through April 23.A people personI always loved people, he says. There was something about faces, drawing faces. In school, hed draw portraits of his teachers and classmates in the margins of his notes. But it took Mr. Riemenschneider a while to find his way to art. Right after high school, he studied premed, but then dropped out of college. It wasnt until he was 30 years old, with a wife, a baby and another on the way, that he decided to study art. He went to the Ringling College of Art & Design in Sarasota and graduated with a BFA in illustration. I was a non-traditional student, he says. I was paying my own way. I had my eyes open. I was there to sponge up as much information as I could. There was a variety of ages in the classes, he says, but there was one constant: Everyone was there for the same reason: be as creative as they could be, and bring everything they had every day. Shawn Barber, one of his professors, did a series of realistic portraits of tattoo artists and moved out to Los Angeles. I look at him as a mentor, Mr. Riemenschneider says. I didnt copy his style, but his work ethic. He would come in the next day with this completed painting that he hadnt started until the end of the (previous) school day. I realized that I had that same ability to just commit to the work and do what I know and not question it. When he decided to go to art school, he applied for and won a Robert Rauschenberg Scholarship from BIG ARTS on Sanibel Island. Years before, as a waiter at the Captiva Art Caf, he had met the acclaimed artist. He was just a regular dude. He was a genius, he says about Mr. Rauschenberg. It was a little bit like meeting the Wizard of Oz from behind the curtain. It demystified the whole world of art to me, and made it very approachable. I think just seeing that he used the same wood, the same paint that I could buy, a lot of the same stuff, made me think: Oh, so I just have to do it. My wife Katie kicked my butt and said, Go to Ringling and follow your dreams. After graduating, he did graphic design for a few years before he started painting portraits. I know all these characters, and I mean that in the best way, he says. People with personality. Not pretty, perfect people. Theyre comfortable in their own skin. People that arent in magazines or on the covers. I think theyre cool because of whats inside them, and some of it comes out in their expressions. So he did a portrait of Jose, who cleans classrooms at Lexington Middle School, where Mr. Riemenschneider teaches art. (Last year he was named Teacher of the Year in Lee County, received an Angel of the Arts Award for Teacher of the Year, and was a Golden Apple Teacher of Distinction.) Sometimes Jose would stop by his classroom and watch him paint after school, until it dawned on Mr. Riemenschneider: I need to paint him! He calls the work My Friend, because thats what Jose always calls him. Then theres Sheldon, whose wife is the Riemenschneiders postal carrier. Sheldon came to the house to buy their refrigerator. My wife saw him and said, My husbands going to want to paint you. He said, Thats cool. Sheldon shows a man in a steelblue shirt and a long, white beard that reaches to the middle of his chest. That beard has a personality all its own, Mr. Riemenschneider says. Its not Santa. Its just cool. Hes painted old friends, students, people hes run into and finds interesting. Hes painted Jupiter One, a band from Brooklyn. Humphrey, the man with brown cap, green hoodie, earrings and a cigarette tucked behind one ear, is the roommate of a friend from Ringling.No jokeMr. Riemenschneider started out painting landscapes. But then he realized that peoples faces are landscapes. Im looking for these organic shapes, to make it not only dimensional, a topography, but more of a landscape of an actual face, he says. I have to create that landscape in the face, the cool, organic shapes. I have to look for the patterns in the face that make it more fun for me to paint, so its not just a flat thing. The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is an ideal place for his work, because the large space allows viewers to look at the paintings close up but also across a large expanse. There arent many spaces in our town like that, he says. I wanted to get into a space that would be comparable to a metropolitan gallery. On opening night, which was April Fools Day, he set up a telescope and focused it on a postage-sized self portrait hanging above the entrance of the art center. It was my own little joke, he says. Ive got all these huge portraits, and mines the size of a postage stamp! The first viewers were also the recipients of a practical joke: Mr. Riemenschneider had put graphite on the perimeter of the eyepiece.More than one showAmerica contains a show within a show; in the back room, Mr. Riemenschneider has assembled seven mixedmedia pieces in a mini-show he calls America Eats. Some of the pieces are a commentary on our fast food society. Theyre intriguing, but its the portraits in the main exhibit that captivate, that hold your gaze, staring right back at you. Some of the heads even seem to have a slight aura around them. The next step: showing abroad, something Mr. Riemenschneider is working on with friends in Germany and Holland. America in Europe makes a lot more sense than America in America, he says. Im gonna keep painting as long as Im alive, he asserts. Im putting myself out there. Cool stuff happens. You just have to show up. AMERICAFrom page C1 >>America: Portraits by Eric Riemenschneider >> When: through April 23 >> Where: The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, 2301 First St., Fort Myers >> Cost: $5 suggested donation >> Info: (239) 337-1933 or in the know >> No Snitches, 36-by-80 inches This is see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil; or I didnt hear nothing, I didnt see nothing, Im not saying nothing. Its the rst painting of the series. It set it all in motion. I felt great about it and then had to do more. They were three students who gave me a rash: Don, Gabriel and Dion. They were as thick as thieves. They would come in and sleep I made them draw, in spite of themselves. I managed to get under their skin and get them infected with art, and they turned out being my best students I nally told them I wanted to paint them. I said, All right, Dion, Don and Gabe, were going to do that whole see no evil thing. It was totally random, but they just instinctively did what was their character. Don is the pretty boy; he covered up his eyes. Gabriel never talked at all, or if he did, it was a whisper; he covered up his ears. And Dion, with his hand over his mouth, he always had the scoop on everyone. He was the player. It was priceless. They all graduated from high school. They all kept in contact with me. Dion is into designing T-shirts. >> Annie, 36-by-36 inches I spent hours working on this face. Its the pose in The Scream by Edvard Munch. On opening night of the show, so many people were getting their photo taken standing next to this one, in the same pose, doing the scream. Annie is one of my students. Shes an original. She doesnt care what anyone thinks. Thats tough in middle school. She has a great personality, is super outgoing. >> Bobby, 80-by-72 inches I met him randomly, at a gas station. He had this beautiful hair that was wild and big and uffy. His hair had more personality than you could put on paper It was more of a fate thing. It was just me seizing the moment. Im thankful for my iPhone, because I have my portfolio on it in high de nition. I said to him, This sounds crazy, but Im a painter, I want to paint you. Dont freak out, look. And I started ipping through some of my pieces. Then I had him. He knew I wasnt some crazy dude hitting on him. And now were friends. He didnt see the painting until the opening. He teared up. He had no idea it was going to be 7 feet tall. It would make anybody stop, to see themselves like that. It was awesome.

PAGE 78 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2011 NAPLES | 8860 TAMIAMI TRAIL NORTH 239.596.6662 Make your EASTER RESERVATIONS Today! Easter April 24 Administrative Professionals Week April 24-30 Nurse Appreciation Week May 6-12 Mothers Day May 8 Graduations Communions Its Springtime...Youve got some celebrating to do NEW Baked Ziti! Mr. Parrishs Rudy is idealistic, loving, conflicted. It takes a long time to build up to it, but his closing monologue a state of the family speech to an empty chair symbolizing their late father is funny and poignant.The entire play takes place in the Pazinskis backyard. And set designer Robert Wolin has given us a highly realistic one. Beyond a fence is the rest of the neighborhood the nosey neighbors house and, almost in dead center, the dome and stained-glass windows of the Catholic church, which stands as a silent sentinel and overshadows everything this family does.King O the Moon has moments of humor and moments of sweetness and, though set in upstate New York, should appeal to Southwest Floridas many Midwestern transplants and snowbirds. It portrays a family in transition living in a nation in transition. It also demonstrates that sometimes, when you reach for the moon, you dont have to settle for stars. Sometimes you can grasp the very thing you want. Son Rudy (Jason Parrish), whos studying t o be a priest (he made a deathbed pr omise to his dad), has gone AWOL from seminary and arrives home after participating in his first anti-war demonstration. Meanwhile, his brother, Eddie (Jacob Womack), whos just gone through boot camp, is about to be shipped out to Vietnam. Eddies pregnant wife, Maureen (Rachel Lomax), was formerly one of the neighborhoods easy girls, which upsets Rudy and Eddies sister, Annie (Claire K. Guy), whos having marital problems. The fourth sibling is Georgie (Adam Jones), whos developmentally challenged. Everyone looks after him. Their mother, Ellen (Carrie Lund) watches over them all with patience and exasperated love. And, unknown to the kids, she and her late husbands best friend, Walter (Mark Chambers), who works in the family tavern, have been dating. He wants to marry her. Theres lot going on, but its easy to follow, because Mr. Dudzick breaks up the action into short scenes and doesnt get too deep. This isnt All My Sons. It also isnt August: Osage County, which was the Reps previous offering. Both are family dramas, but the plays couldnt be more unalike in tone and approach. King O the Moon is more light-hearted fare, simple and sweet. Mr. Dudzick has been called the Catholic Neil Simon, and I could agree with that assessment if the lines were consistently funny. This script has some great ARTS COMMENTARY Before King O the Moon starts every night at Florida Repertory Theatre, Bob Dylans The Times They Are A Changin begins to play. Director Robert Cacioppo couldnt have picked a more appropriate song, because King O the Moon is a play about transition societal, religious, familial and personal. Its set in July 1969, just when astronauts are about to land on the moon for the first time and the countrys youth are still being shipped off to Vietnam to die. This Tom Dudzick play is a sequel to his Over the Tavern and part of a planned trilogy focusing on the Pazinski family in Buffalo, N.Y. The first in the series has played at the Florida Rep in an earlier season, but its not necessary to have seen it in order to appreciate the second; its self-contained. You dont have to be Catholic, either, like the Pazinskis, though I suspect if you are, it might deepen your appreciation and understanding of the play. t t a f h j nancySTETSON King O the Moon deftly performed Connick Jr. at the top of his craftones, but on opening night there were stretches where the action and the humor lagged, and times when it was only mildly amusing. Sometimes, it seems, the cast is better than the play. The plot at times strains credulity, and at others is a bit sit-com-y. Ms. Lund is perfect as the mom. The anchor of the family and the anchor of the play, she can get a laugh with just one word, and her courting scenes with Mr. Chambers are some of the best. Mr. Chambers Walter is bumbling, charming and earnest, and the actor makes him not only likeable, but believable. Mr. Womack portrays his soldier-to-be with perfect military rigidity; hes supposed to be in advertising, but he seems to depend more upon his muscles than his wit or brain. He and Maureen are perfectly suited for each other: Shes a dim bulb, too, but shows a lot more sass. Mr. Womacks best scene comes when he realizes what going off to Vietnam will truly mean, and that he might not return. Ms. Guy seems to have the most thankless role, as not only is her character in a state of perpetual disapproval, but shes forced by costume designer Robert Malcolm to wear some of the ugliest, dowdiest dresses that ever existed in the s. (This is upstate New York; no go-go boots or mini-skirts here.)Mr. Joness role as Georgie seems the most risky. It could turn into an off-putting caricature, but the actor makes his character a sweet, expressive young man. (His impersonation of their late father is hilarious.)If I were instructing fledgling singers and musicians, Id take them to a Harry Connick Jr. concert, because his performances are a master class in how it should be done. King O the Moon>>When: through April 24 >>Where: Florida Repertory Theatre, 2267 First St., Fort Myers >>Cost: $19-$44 >>Info: 332-4488 or www.boxof ce@ in the know Ive seen him a number of times now, and he never fails to impress. His recent show at Sarasotas Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall just underscored what I already know: The man is a consummate performer, at the top of his craft. Backed by a 12-piece orchestra as well as a bassist and drummer, he opened with The Way You Look Tonight, one of the standards he performed on Broadway last summer (15 sold-out shows at the Neil Simon Theatre). Its a beautiful place(pause)on the inside, he said of the venue. I never saw a place like this purple paint! The audience laughed. I never know what Im going to play, he told them. Probably no Black Sabbath. Maybe some Deep Purple, he joked, taking another jab at the Van Wezels purple exterior. He delivered a tender version of the Beatles And I Love Her, then went to the piano and started talking about great New Orleans pianists such as Jelly Roll Morton and Professor Longhair, demonstrating their piano styles. Thats how Fess would play, he declared, then showed how others would add their own variation and flavor. His attire a dark suit with a white button-down shirt open at the collar is a perfect metaphor for his shows, which are always professional but also very informal. When guest trombonist Lucien Barbarin came out to play, the two jammed on How Come You Do Me Like You Do? with Mr. Connick hamming it up, serenading Mr. Barbarin. He even picked up a trumpet and played. The two danced about the stage with glee, at one point even stepping across the front of the stage, their backs to the audience, wiggling their posteriors, to the great joy of the crowd. When guest trumpeter Wendell Brunious joined them, all three took turns soloing on The Sheik of Araby. At one point, Mr. Connick encouraged the crowd to chant without your pants on after each line. The concert had transformed into a giant New Orleans party, with dancing, singing and ad libbing. This is how they do in New Orleans, Mr. Connick said. It was an exhilarating, joyful, triumphant night, and even though Mr. Connick came out for an encore, performing Mardi Gras in New Orleans, you couldnt help but wish for more. app e d o t h t e understandin g of the p la y. a s i COURTESY PHOTOHarry Connick Jr.

World rights reserved.FLORIDA WEEKLY PUZZLES HOROSCOPES APRIL SHOWERS By Linda Thistle ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Impatienc e is still somewhat of a problem. But a sign of progress should soothe the anxious Aries heart. Meanwhile, invest some of that waiting time in preparing for the change ahead. TAURUS (April 30 to May 20) B o vines tend to excel at solving problems, not creating them. But you risk doing just that if youre slow to respond to a timely situation. If necessary, seek advice from someone you trust. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) T he Gemini T win might need to do more than a routine check of both a job-linked and home-based situation. Dig deeper for more data on both fronts to avoid unwanted surprises later. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) M oon Childr en facing an important workplace decision are encouraged to use their perceptiveness to see through any attempt to win them over with a supercharge of fawning and flattery. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Good ne w s catapults Leos and Leonas into reconsidering a deferred decision. But time has moved on, and its a good idea to recheck your plans and make adjustments where necessary. VIRGO (August 23 to September 2 2) The week favors relationships, both personal and professional. Take the time to look for and immediately repair any vulnerable areas caused by unresolved misunderstandings. LIBRA (September 23 to October 2 2) A friends problems bring out your protective instincts. Be careful to keep a balance between meeting the obligations of friendship without being overwhelmed by them. SCORPIO (October 23 to N o vember 2) The temptation to take an extreme position on an issue is strong, but moderation is favored both in personal and professional dealings. Move toward finding areas of agreement. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to Dec ember 21) Getting another boss or teacher? Try to see the person behind the image. It will help you adjust more easily to the changes that new authority figures inevitably bring. CAPRICORN (December 22 to J anuar y 19) Much as you might dislike the idea, keep an open mind about using the assistance of a third party to help resolve problems that threaten to unravel an important agreement. AQUARIUS (January 20 to Febr uar y 18) Music helps restore the Aquarians spiritual energies this week. Take someone you care for to a concert of your musical choice. Also, expect news about a workplace matter. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A challenge that seems eas y enough at first could take an unexpected turn that might test your resolve. Decide if you feel you should stay with it, or if its better to move in another direction. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be str ong when standing up for justice, both for yourself and for others.Place a number in the empty boxes in such a way that each row across, each column down and each small 9-box square contains all of the numbers from one to nine.Sponsored By: Moderate Challenging ExpertPuzzle Difficulty this week:

In the opening moments of the woefully illogical and ridiculous Hanna, Hanna (Saoirse Ronan) kills an elk and guts it. Then her father beats the crap out of her. Not for killing the elk, mind you, but for her own good, so that makes it OK. You see, dad is a rogue ex-C.I.A. agent named Erik (Eric Bana) whos training his 16-year-old daughter to be an assassin, and she had her back turned. Some fathers want their daughters to be doctors or lawyers. Erik wants his little girl to kill. I dont feel comfortable judging the parenting of others, but yeah. They live in the frigid, desolate Arctic. Why? Because Erik wants to be far away from Marissa (Cate Blanchett), a CIA agent who once worked with Erik. Marissa has a vested interest in Hanna and no, its not because Hanna is her long-lost daughter, even if the trailers try to get you to believe thats the films twist. After teaching Hanna German, Italian, Spanish and other languages but never exposing her to electricity, for reasons never explained Erik allows Hanna to tell Marissa where they are and a game of cat-and-mouse ensues. For help, Marissa hires Isaac (Tom Hollander), whom she meets in a sex club as they watch a transvestite perform. But thats not the unusual part. The unusual part is that Isaac is supposed to be a maniacal killer, and all he wears are tracksuits. I dont care who you are, what you do or how deviously quirky you might seem, no one and I mean no one looks tough in a tracksuit. As shes on the run, Hanna meets a British family and befriends Sophie (Jessica Barden), whos her age. Its here, among other places, that director Joe Wrights movie gets into trouble: Theres simply no time for Hannas coming-of-age drama, and every time the thrill of the chase heightens, the momentum is undone by Hanna embracing her girlhood.Whats even worse, as the plot twists unfold, the story by Seth Lochhead and David Farr gets harder and harder to believe. Information is deliberately kept from the audience and also from major characters much longer than it should be. When key points are revealed, they arent logically consistent with everything thats come before. What Hanna does well: The action scenes are nicely choreographed, especially one long tracking shot in which Erik walks into a train station, beats up five thugs and then walks out the other side, all in one shot. Like the movie or not, that scene is pretty impressive from a filmmaking standpoint, and it nicely articulates how everyone seems to be coming at Erik and Hanna at once. The performances from Ms. Ronan, Mr. Bana and Ms. Blanchett are fine, and the camera loves Ms. Ronans frizzy blond hair and vibrant blue eyes.Unfortunately theres nothing else to love about Hanna, which is decent at best and a total disappointment at worst.

Among the participating artists are painter Joan Osborn-Dunkle and potter Annabelle Johnson. A Naples resident for 15 years, Ms. Osborn-Dunkle has taught art for 30 years and works in various mediums, including acrylic, collage, watercolor and pastel. Her pieces often include found objects that pay homage to the process of time and reveal a fundamental link to the past, present and future of our lives by their honesty, simplicity and beauty. She works daily, year round, at The Kelley | Dunkle Studio, 5760 Shirley Street. A self-taught potter, Ms. Johnson moved to Naples with her husband more than 20 years ago. Although she had been fascinated with pottery her entire life, it was in Naples that she met a mentor who inspired her to take risks with her work and convinced her that she could make a career from her artistic endeavors. Now her work can be found in several galleries around the country. Ms. Johnson works primarily with functional white or terracotta earthenware. Brightly colored glazes applied to her wares are all custom made in her Naples studio. The local environment is evident throughout her work with dragonflies, geckos, fish and the occasional Labrador retriever decorating every piece. Annabelle Johnson Pottery is at 5850 Shirley St. Ms. Johnson can be found every Saturday morning at the Third Street Farmers Market in Old Naples, and her custom works are available in the gift shop at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples. Other participating artists in the Shirley Street 16 are: Cynthia and Steve Adams, Karen Barrow, Eric and Jessica Crabtree, Susan Doerflinger, Nancy Hall, Sandra Jackoboice, Alice Jacobs, Shirley Kelley, Carol Lader, Lynn Loscutoff, Patty Mayhew, Deborah Martin, Susan Alexander Shipman, Gerry Crow Roeder and Tammra Sigler.

The albums more delicate tracks include the title song as well as Cant Wait (one of three vocal tunes on the otherwise instrumental CD) and Guilty Pleasure. And even the punchier songs remain melodically rich and bathed in the blend of synthesizers, piano and orchestral-type tones that are Yanni trademarks. I think Truth of Touch is going to surprise people, he says. It still sounds like Yanni and the record is me, but its not typical Yanni. I think I gave it a different life, a different soul, a different spirit the same heart, the same soul, but a little older. The direction the new CD took was not something Yanni predetermined. In fact, as much as any of the albums he has released in his 25-year career, Truth of Touch happened spontaneously, taking shape almost before the artist realized he was making a new CD. Hed been working non-stop, in the studio every day between tours, for four years, when, All of a sudden there was a six-month period where things just went to a standstill, he says. I didnt know what to do with myself. Then one night I thought why dont I just go and play some music like the old days, when Id just walk into the studio, dim the lights a bit and just think think of music, feel it I went in there and I was so full of things to say, from so many years of traveling and so many new experiences in life. With no concept or direction to follow, he says he found himself going with whatever inspiration surfaced at the moment. I was having fun with sound design, coming up with new sounds, he says.

Along the way, he did something he has only done occasionally over the years: collaborate with an outside writer on songs. Producer/songwriter Miklos Malek, who has worked with Jennifer Lopez, Faith Evans, Jessica Andrews and Donna Summer, among others, is credited on five of the 15 songs on Truth of Touch. Yanni and Mr. Malek connected through Yannis producer, Ric Wake. Miklos is a great composer, Yanni says, adding the two never even got together in the same place as they worked on the CD. He was working in Los Angeles. I would send him ideas and he would work on them and send some of his ideas back. Pleased with the results, Yanni now looks forward to more collaboration with Mr. Malek. He had some really nice ideas. With Truth of Touch now out, Yanni is back on tour. Based on shows he played in Latin America earlier this year, he believes hes hit a new peak with the mostly instrumental act. I have a couple of vocal pieces, he says, but theyre surprises. I think its the best orchestra Ive ever had. And this is the best tour, the best concert Ive ever put together, because the choice of material goes from the very beginning of my career all the way to the latest album. Its all of the highlights of what I think people have enjoyed, plus a few good surprises.

North Naples United Methodist Church Deceptive advertising has been a problem for centuries. The cures of Victorian times were promoted with posters, trade cards, almanacs, recipe books, calendars and other testimonials. One of the prominent makers of cures, remedies and hair and skin products was James C. Ayer & Co. From 1838-1841, Mr. Ayer worked in an apothecary shop in Connecticut. He studied the Harvard College suggested curriculum for chemistry and also studied medicine with a doctor. He bought the drugstore, sold his own remedies and eventually owned multiple stores, factories and other investments that made him a wealthy man. He died in 1878, and and 1886 his family sold the business to Sterling Products. One of his most famous products, Ayers Hair Vigor, was advertised as a coloring and dressing that could prevent and cures hair loss and restore gray hair to its natural vitality and color. Restoring was really dying, but this was just a tiny exaggeration compared with the claims for other Ayers products. One said it restored your health after a malaria attack. Another promised a youthful appearance. An Ayers hair product was still for sale in the 1930s. The colorful Ayers bottles, posters and printed material with unusual graphics are popular with todays collectors. Q: In 1980 I paid $500 for a hand-carved and inlaid coffee table that was a floor sample in an interior design companys Cincinnati showroom. The name John Widdicomb is stamped on the underside of the tabletop. Can you tell me what the tables market value is today? A: John Widdicomb Co. was in business in Grand Rapids, Mich., from 1897 until 2002, when the company closed and its name was sold to L. & J.G. Stickley, Inc., of Manlius, N.Y. Stickley now sells a John Widdicomb Collection of traditional pieces. John Widdicomb Co. was known for its high-end designs, which might include your table. Pieces were marked in various ways through the years, but the simple mark John Widdicomb was used from the mid-1950s until the mid-1970s. If your table is in good shape, it could sell for $500 or more. Q: We have a quilt that has been handed down in our family. Its made of 36 small flannel flags of countries around the world surrounding a larger 48-star American flag. I think the small flags, each about 5 by 8 inches, were some kind of product premium. Can you tell me more?A: Little national flags made of flannelElixirs pretty promotions continue to move productKOVELS: ANTIQUES p terryKOVEL

It was in July of that year that the American flag started to be made with 48 stars and it stayed that way until Alaska was admitted to the U nion in 1959. C ollectors often refer to the flannel tobacco premiums as blankets. The flags were either wrapped around the tobacco package or inserted in a little envelope inside the package. They came in several sizes and were intended to be used for sewing into bedspreads and pillowcases. So its not surprising that one of your relatives used them to make a quilt. Collectors of old tobacco inserts want unsewn single flags. But some collectors like quilts made from the flags. We have seen quilts like yours sell for as little as $10 and as much as $650. Price depends on condition, size and where the quilt is offered for sale. Q: I buy junk jewelry from thrift stores and usually take pieces apart to make my own designs. I dont want to take something apart thats valuable, though. So how do I know if a piece is valuable?A: What you find in a thrift store may indeed be junk. But it also could be vintage costume jewelry. First get a magnifying glass and check out the backs and clasps of any jewelry you find. Any piece with a mark should not be taken apart, at least not until you check who made it. Once you can make out the mark, check the Internet or books on costume jewelry to learn who used the mark. The Kovels have written two special reports on identifying good costume jewelry. They are available via the Store link at Costume jewelry is very popular today, so you want to take care of any good pieces you find. Many marked pieces can sell for hundreds of dollars each. Tip: When regluing loose rungs or parts of chairs, remove old glue with vinegar. Drip it into any holes with a small oil can. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Forces large and small are at work, each hungry to prevail. One piece of the action has to do with the Faust brothers, Moses and Jonah. These men, who buy and sell serial killer memorabilia, also do odd jobs for Browning Hammond. They are the ones whove kidnapped Thorn and have him confined in what seems to be a sinkhole within which a prison has been fashioned. The thought processes of these moral cripples are exquisitely realized by their creator. Clearly, someone thinks Thorns plans to take valuable lands off the development table must be stopped or at least delayed. Earls death and Thorns disappearance are parts of the same case. The episodes in Silencer that describe Thorns confinement, escape and frenzied journey through the Central Florida wilderness are magnificent. Mr. Hall provides perfect-pitch sensory renditions of the unique terrain and of Thorns physical, mental and emotional ordeal. Three forceful women are integrated into this plot, and each is carefully and memorably drawn. Readers familiar with Rusty Stabler, Thorns girlfriend and now the director of his real estate ventures, will know her better and admire her more; Claire, Browning wife, shows moral backbone as she turns into an accomplice in the attempts to end Brownings selfish, destructive behavior; and Anne Donaldson, FDLE agent, shows her nononsense professionalism in whats little more than a walk-on part.There is a fourth important female: a heroic horse named Big Girl. As always, Mr. Hall proves himself a master of scene-setting and character development. He also knows, how to structure plot and set the pace for maximum suspense. Though Thorn is not always center stage in this novel, there is plenty of him to endure and adore. Silencer, now out in paperback, is a totally engaging romp by the master of Florida noir. Mr. Hall brilliantly imagines the ways in which natural, economic and cultural history affect the shadow-filled, vulnerable present. Keep up with the author at www. n e R fr to t t C s There is a fo u Silencer, by by James W. Hall. Minotaur Books. 288 pages. $24.99 hardback; $14.99 paperback. James W. Halls recurring character, Thorn, is among my favorite reluctant heroes. Now in his 11th outing, Thorn (dont you love guys with one name?) forsakes his usual association with the Florida Keys and runs into new kinds of trouble as a landholder with the goal of saving an enormous tract in south-central Florida from development.Well, no, the set-up is not as simple as that. Thorn has inherited an extensive patch of real estate east of Sarasota that he has agreed to sell to a state program called Forever Florida. With the money this brings, he hopes to obtain the historic Coquina Ranch holdings from Earl Hammond Jr. and take them off the development table as well. Earl, the aging head of a Florida dynasty, does not see either of his two sons as proper stewards and is favorable to Thorns proposal. The younger son, Browning, is already exploiting one corner of the immense property with an ugly business in which the bored and wealthy can huntto-kill exotic animals Browning brings in from around the world. He has associated himself with too many low-lifes, among them Antwan Shelton, a flashy ex-football star whos now a smooth but shady pitchman and dealmaker. The older son, Frisco, long ago separated himself from the family enterprise; he is a Miami policeman assigned and devoted to the mounted police command and its steeds. At a gathering at the ranch, everyone is seemingly surprised when a long-time loyal employee, Gustavo Pinto, points a gun at Earl. Mayhem breaks out as Brownings wife, the lovely Claire, senses that something is wrong and also grabs a firearm. But she hesitates just long enough before shooting at Gustavo for Earl to be murdered. What is Gustavos motive? Why is Floridas Gov. Sanchez visiting that day? And why is our hero Thorn kidnapped soon after? As one might expect, behind the bedlam are issues involving the land: its value, its history, its exploitation, its conservation. FLORIDA WRITERS Silencers puts a new Thorn in James W.

According to a new book, the first skirmishes of the war caught the South at a disadvantage. Since the Southern states were primarily agricultural, most of the firearms manufactured in America during the years leading up to the conflict were made in the North. Simply put, the South had to play catch up. Dennis Adler is the perfect candidate to write a book that documents the colorful history and sprawling overview of the legendary guns and arms makers of the Civil War era. He is a nationally known expert in firearms and the author of 38 books, most on the subjects of Western guns and collectible firearms. Mr. Adler also is involved in the design and manufacture of custom cowboy guns for collectors and shooters, and serves on the Antique Firearms Committee of America. Guns of the Civil War is divided into six main sections: A Nation on the Verge of Conflict and the Guns at Hand; Handguns of the Union Arming a Nation at War With Itself; Longarms of the U.S. Military; Confederate Arms; A Litany of Foreign Arms; and Modern Reproductions and Replicas. Its 352 pages are filled with more than 300 photos and illustrations in full color, the work of the author. This is more than just a book about guns, however. Mr. Adler includes the politics of the country during this turbulent period that places the various guns in their historical context. The evolution of loose-powder cap-and-ball revolvers and the rifles developed and chosen for war is especially interesting. This is a must-have book not just for gun enthusiasts, but for history lovers as well.

This low-key outpost along U.S. 41 manages to provide delightful French fare and a casual, laid-back hospitality, compliments of owner Benoit Legris. The wine list is brief but well chosen, a snapshot of vintages that please the owner. You cant go wrong with mussels in Normandie cream sauce or the well-executed escargots de Bourgogne. Roasted duck with spicy peach sauce was a glorious variation on duck lorange, and the shrimp and sea scallops au gratin were simple yet elegant. Dinner concluded with a classic raspberry tart and whisper-thin crepe Suzette, both of which were flawless. The service, Old World atmosphere and moderate prices all enhanced a wonderful meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2010 IM Tapas, 965 Fourth Ave. N., Naples; 403-8272 Small plates they may be, but the dishes that emerge from the kitchen here are packed with flavor and style. Each looks like a work of art and possesses big, fresh flavors that reveal the passionate dedication of its inspired creators, chefs Isabel Polo Pozo and Mary Shipman, both of whom are well-versed in this vibrant Spanish cuisine. A polished staff and stylish dining room add to the warmth and conviviality of a meal at this little off-the-beaten-path gem. If theres a less-than-wondrous dish on the menu, I havent found it yet, despite several visits. Among my favorites are chorizo in cider, beets Napoleon, garlic-laced white anchovies, diver scallops on octopus slivers, spinach wilted a la Catalana, wild bonito with pomegranate seeds and pomegranate foam, and a plate of stellar artisanal cheeses. Its situated a few miles north of the citys tonier dining areas, but it surpasses many of the more high profile establishments in both cuisine and style. Beer and wine.

The house specialty is parrillada, or a meat platter containing a cornucopia of animal flesh served on an open grill over smoldering wood chips. Although fairly meat focused, the kitchen conjures up excellent ceviche. A grilled salmon entre delivered to a nearby table looked so good I was sorry I hadnt ordered it. Appetizers of steamed mussels and veal tongue vinaigrette were also delicious. There are no fancy trappings here, no leather booths or tuxedoed servers. Prices are modest and vegetables accompany entrees without an added charge. For dessert, dulce de leche crepes came filled with rich, gooey caramel cream topped with generous mounds of real whipped cream. Service is leisurely but hospitable.

The menu features top-drawer ingredients crab cakes full of big chunks of crab, shaved slices of grana padano atop a well-balanced Caesar, fresh Florida seafood and a house-made apple galette with cinnamon ice cream that caused sighs of contentment from all at our table.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 14-20, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 If theres one form of dining we could use more of in this region, its that which marries a great view of the water with food that measures up to the scenery. Given the abundance of water in Southwest Florida, it would seem logical that there would be more than enough such establishments. Having tried a multitude, I have found that the food rarely is as good as the view. Coconut Jacks Waterfront Grille, which opened in February in the vastly remodeled space previously occupied by Vincenzos on the Bay, does a fine job of delivering on all fronts. It skillfully blends appealing waterfront atmosphere, a creative tropical menu and customer comfort at prices that dont make guests feel as if theyve encountered a band of pirates. The first upgrade is the complimentary valet parking, eliminating the need to maneuver through the narrow and challenging parking lot. (Those who wish to park themselves can navigate the west end of the lot.)The change inside is dramatic. The once upscale Italian restaurant that ended its run in sad disrepair has been transformed into a cheerful Caribbean-themed outpost offering a nicely appointed bar, dining room and expansive deck shaded by an authentic chickee hut overlooking the mangrovelined waters off Estero Bay. The island music is not a repetitious loop of reggae tunes. Whats more, I heard not a single Jimmy Buffett tune during our meal. From the hostess to our server to the two staff members who delivered food and made table checks, the service staff was efficient and personable. Friendly without overdoing it, they all worked hard to make sure that patrons were well attended to. Clearly the team of restaurateurs who created this venue Chef Jon Venuto and operating owners Brad Lewis and Melissa Floyd put a lot of thought into what customers want. Besides the option of eating indoors or out, diners can choose from among full entrees, sandwiches and baskets. They can order inexpensive basa or pricier (and, in my opinion, worth the extra money) grouper and can have either served blackened, battered, fried, grilled or barbecued. While the tropical ambience might seem to call for appropriately themed drinks, theres also a respectable wine list that complements entrees such as aged filet mignon, grilled mahi with Caribbean jerk glaze and lobster ravioli with applewood bacon sherry cream sauce. Arriving at about 2:30 p.m., we opted for the more casual fare, which is available for both lunch and dinner. We started with a couple of tropical beverages: the Ultimate mojito ($6.25) and a Sunset Breeze ($6.25). The former was what the name implies: a tall glass filled with Don Q Limon rum, cane sugar, lime and lots of fresh mint. The latter was a lovely scarlet concoction consisting of Mount Gay Calypso rum, passion fruit juice, cranberry juice and grenadine. The combination had a good balance of sweet and tart. From the appetizers, we settled on Cayman calamari ($9.95) and hot voodoo wings ($9.95). Other wing choices include mild, voodoo death, barbecue or sesame teriyaki. The dozen large wings were perfectly cooked, with a crisp exterior covering moist meat. The sauce had a pleasing lipand tongue-tingling heat that was moderated by a cup of blue cheese dressing with celery and carrot sticks. The Cayman calamari ($9.95) featured fried rounds of tender squid atop a lemongarlic-banana pepper sauce. It was a light and refreshing version of this ubiquitous appetizer. Either dish, by the way, was large enough to share. My companion ordered one of the most popular dishes at Coconut Jacks, the mambo mahi tacos ($13.95), which consisted of three soft flour tortillas filled with shredded red cabbage, grilled mahi, tomatoes, cilantro salsa and Key lime aioli, accompanied by jasmine rice and black beans. The tacos had a great mix of textures and the aioli added subtle flavor, although I couldnt detect any cilantro. Cumin and bacon gave the beans lots of flavor and made them a lively counterpoint to the mild tacos. The scallop basket ($17.95) contained a mound of lightly grilled scallops (they are also available fried or blackened) situated on a generous pile of crisp fries. A small cup of well-chilled cole slaw that was both creamy and crunchy, completed the basket. Cocktail and citrus remoulade sauces complemented the juicy scallops.Finally, we shared the coconut sorbet with strawberry-mango salsa ($4.95). The dessert was beautifully plated with the sorbet packed into a coconut shell with whipped cream on top and below (to level the shell), with a side of the fruit mixture that was more compote than salsa. The sorbet was creamy with a fresh coconut flavor that paired well with the not-too-sweet fruit. Coconut Jacks will likely pull in plenty of customers from its view alone. But its the food and hospitality they find inside that will bring them back for more. karenFELDMAN food & wine CALENDAR Thursday, April 14, 5:30-8 p.m., Decanted: The store holds its first Brew Ha Ha, a beer-based version of its wine throwdown, featuring 20 beers from around the world; $15, 1410 Pine Ridge Road; 434-1814.
