Brother Dave, as he styled himself, was never a huge star, but he made some pretty good money for a while. He had trouble keeping it, however, because he was a bit of a gambler. One weekend he showed up at the Leighton, Ala., residence of Willie Dewitt Dawson, a no-nonsense sort of guy who earned his keep by robbing banks, bootlegging whiskey, conducting strong-arm shakedowns, running a mini-casino out of his house and evading taxes. By the end of the weekend, Brother Dave was $5,000 in the hole, which was not surprising since every game of chance at Dewitts place was outrageously rigged. Brother Dave told Dewitt that he would have to send him the money. No, Dewitt said, that just wouldnt do. Brother Dave needed to pay. Now. Brother Dave got a little huffy and told Dewitt that was impossible. This was not a prudent way to deal with Mr. Dawson. Dont they call you fellas stand-up comedians? Dewitt inquired. Brother Dave, who was gathering his things and preparing to walk out the door, said that was the proper designation for his craft. Well, heres my question to you, Brother Dave: How you gonna stand up on that stage and tell your jokes with both your kneecaps broke in two? As if by magic, the comedian found the funds needed to cover his tab at Chez Dawson. Dewitt loved to tell that story, and he told it well, because he was a guy who could spin a yarn as well as he could break an arm. Dewitt Dawson probably was the most interesting human being Ive ever encountered. Not the nicest or most admirable, for sure, but interesting? Hell, yes. For years, Ive toyed with the idea of writing a book about him, but for a lot of reasons thats not going to happen. So a column is the way to go. Dewitt (a man of considerable ego) would have preferred a book and a big movie deal, but hes been dead for years, so hes lost his say in the matter. As a young newspaper reporter in Alabama in the early 1970s, I had heard the wild tales of the exploits of the Dawson Gang, which was headed by Dewitt and to a lesser degree by his savagely violent brother, who was named Pride. Robbing banks in an area that included Northwest Alabama and parts of Mississippi and Tennessee was the gangs specialty. No one was sure how much loot they made off with. One FBI agent told me that it had to be at least $4 million over a period of years stretching from the 1960s through the 1970s. Dewitt Dawson was an outsized personality, equal parts John Dillinger and P.T. Barnum. He described himself to me once as hillbilly white trash, but he looked like Hollywoods notion of a Sicilian mobster, with coal-black hair, an olive complexion and the physique of an intimidating college football lineman gone slightly to seed. He lived in a huge home and drove an enormous, black Lincoln Continental with a front license plate that read Kingpin. The Alabama attorney general openly called Dewitt the worst outlaw in the state, and Dewitt was not the least bit offended. Dewitt became something of an obsession to me, and I was determined to write the definitive story of this strange, frightening man. I knew this would be difficult, for while Dewitt could be a publicity hound, he was not partial to reporters and preferred to manage his own image. To this end, he even hired a country singer to write and record a biographical tune called Kingpin.They call him the chieftain of organized crime/From the Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi line/Hes always lived a life of sin/Dewitt Dawson, they call the Kingpin.Dewitt sprang from abysmal poverty and never made it out of the third grade. But he was a genius at anything associated with criminality. One evening he explained to me how someone might (theoretically, mind you) launder vast sums of money quickly after a bank heist. It was brilliant.The first time I went knocking on Dewitts door, I became lost in the backwoods of Northwest Alabama and stopped at a country store for directions. The geezer who ran the place gave me one of those shocked, frightened looks you used to see in old horror movies whenever an unsuspecting traveler passing through Transylvania asked about Count Draculas castle.Dewitt surprisingly agreed to be the subject of my story, and I spent hours in his company. As you can imagine, it wasnt the most flattering of profiles. Still, Dewitt pretty much took it in stride and even autographed copies for anyone who asked. He died at the age of 58 in 1997, roughly 30 percent of his life having been spent behind bars. Miraculously, the FBI only nailed him for one bank robbery, but repeated tax-evasion charges kept him a state of legal turmoil.Someone sent me an account of his death, which informed that he had been puttering placidly in his yard when his heart suddenly gave out. A man of great violence died a supremely peaceful death.You think theres a heaven and a hell? he once asked me, much to my surprise. I replied, Mark Twain probably was right when he said you go to heaven for the climate and hell for the company. Dewitt thought that was pretty clever. If Mr. Twain was indeed correct (and he was right about many things), then Dewitt Dawson at this moment is keeping company with long-passed members of his old gang and planning the next big caper, which undoubtedly will be pulled off in some place that has a very, very bad climate.

Rick Perry. If you squint just right, you could mistake him at a podium for his predecessor, George W. Bush. Except for his message. There might be no more powerful symbol of the death of compassionate conservatism in the Republican Party than Bushs successor and former running mate in Texas stomping all over it with cowboy boots emblazoned with the words Freedom and Liberty.Bush rose from Texas to the national stage in 1999 talking of his federal education agenda, the courage of single mothers, the power of drug and alcohol recovery programs, and the need for government to forge partnerships with faith organizations. Perry is emerging from Texas talking of the 10th Amendment, cutting government, defending freedom and defending freedom some more.Bush spoke in dulcet tones. He separated himself from the firebrand politics of Newt Gingrich and even took a swipe at the insufficiently cheerful Robert Bork. Perry is telling Republicans to stop apologizing and elect more conservatives. Hes Rick Perry, and hes from the Republican wing of the Republican Party. The backlash against Bush has long been brewing. Compassionate conservatism was a product of the moment when Bush began to run for president in the late 1990s. The congressional wing of the party had immolated itself in the government-shutdown fights and then the impeachment of Bill Clinton. A rebranding was in order, and Bush wanted to signal to general-election voters that they neednt fear him.Running on his message circa 1999, George W. Bush would be hard-pressed to gain traction in the current Republican Party. Running on his record circa 2008 the spending programs, the bailouts, the attempted amnesty and the two ongoing hearts and minds wars of counterinsurgency hed be booed from the stage. If Michele Bachmann didnt drop-kick him off it first.But Bush had two insights. He realized that the party had to win over the center as well as the right, and that unadulterated doctrine would have the most appeal only to the doctrinaire. If Rick Perry thinks the 10th Amendment is going to have cachet with voters worried about their jobs, their wages and the value of their homes, hes been spending too much time at Federalist Society seminars. On top of everything else, compassionate conservatism reflected the prosperity of the 1990s. As a candidate, Bush sometimes seemed to forget that economic self-interest trumps all else. In this economy, Republicans would be suicidal ever to forget that. Even as he preaches the old-time religion, Perry in his proto-stump speech returns again and again to a highly practical theme: his success in fostering a pro-jobs environment in Texas. As the press clues into the new antiBush drift of the GOP, we can expect a revival in Bushs reputation. He will be portrayed as more reasonable, more internationalist and altogether more statesmanlike than his benighted compatriots. If only it were still the party of George W. Bush will be the lament. And it will make the party even more glad that its not. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The rise of uncompassionate conservatism richLOWRY Special to Florida Weekly New details are emerging that indicate the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan is far worse than previously known, with three of the four affected reactors experiencing full meltdowns. Meanwhile, in the U.S., massive flooding along the Missouri River has put Nebraskas two nuclear plants, both near Omaha, on alert. The Cooper Nuclear Station declared a low-level emergency and will have to close down if the river rises another 3 inches. The Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant has been shut down since April 9, in part due to flooding. At Prairie Island, Minn., extreme heat caused the nuclear plants two emergency diesel generators to fail. Emergencygenerator failure was one of the key problems that led to the meltdowns at Fukushima.In May, in reaction to the Fukushima disaster, Nikolaus Berlakovich, Austrias federal minister of agriculture, forestry, environment and water management, convened a meeting of Europes 11 nuclear-free countries. Those gathered resolved to push for a nuclear-free Europe, even as Germany announced it will phase out nuclear power in 10 years and push ahead on renewable-energy research. Then, in last weeks national elections in Italy, more than 90 percent of voters resoundingly rejected Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconis plans to restart the countrys nuclear-power program.Leaders of national nuclear-energy programs are gathering this week in Vienna for the International Atomic Energy Agencys Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Safety. The meeting was called in response to Fukushima. Ironically, the ministers, including U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jaczko, held their meeting safely in a country with no nuclear power plants. Austria is at the forefront of Europes new anti-nuclear alliance. The IAEA meeting was preceded by the release of an Associated Press report stating that consistently, and for decades, U.S. nuclear regulators lowered the bar on safety regulations in order to allow operators to keep the nuclear plants running. Nuclear power plants were constructed in the U.S. in the decades leading up to the Three Mile Island disaster in 1979. These 104 plants are all getting on in years. The original licenses were granted for 40 years. The APs Jeff Donn wrote, When the first ones were being built in the 1960s and 1970s, it was expected that they would be replaced with improved models long before those licenses expired. Enormous upfront construction costs, safety concerns and the problem of storing radioactive nuclear waste for thousands of years drove away private investors. Instead of developing and building new nuclear plants, the owners typically forprofit companies like Exelon Corp., a major donor to the Obama campaigns through the years simply try to run the old reactors longer, applying to the NRC for 20-year extensions. Europe, already ahead of the U.S. in development and deployment of renewable-energy technology, is now poised to accelerate in the field. In the U.S., the NRC has provided preliminary approval of the Southern Companys planned expansion of the Vogtle power plant in Georgia, which would allow the first construction of new nuclear power plants in the U.S. since Three Mile Island. The project got a boost from President Barack Obama, who pledged an $8.3 billion federal loan guarantee. Southern plans on using Westinghouses new AP1000 reactor. But a coalition of environmental groups has filed to block the permit, noting that the new reactor design is inherently unsafe. Obama established what he called his Blue Ribbon Commission on Americas Nuclear Future. One of its 15 members is John R owe, the chairman and chief executive officer of Exelon Corp. (the same nuclear-energy company that has lavished campaign contributions on Obama). The commission made a fact-finding trip to Japan to see how that country was thriving with nuclear power one month before the Fukushima disaster. In May, the commission reiterated its position, which is Obamas position, that nuclear ought to be part of the U.S. energy mix. The U.S. energy mix, instead, should include a national jobs program to make existing buildings energy efficient, and to install solar and windpower technology where appropriate. These jobs could not be outsourced and would immediately reduce our energy use and, thus, our reliance on foreign oil and domestic coal and nuclear. Such a program could favor U.S. manufacturers, to keep the money in the U.S. economy. That would be a simple, effective and sane reaction to Fukushima.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 lier and Charlotte, as well as elsewhere in Florida and the North. Theres been so much pent-up demand, and a lot of national tenants are driven by stock returns. If you look at corporate profits sitting on the sidelines, theres millions or billions of dollars, he insists. Investors want that money put somewhere. Im talking companies like Family Dollar, Walgreens, Publix, Winn-Dixie, West Marine, McDonalds theyre like, We want to grow. Were ready. Along with such projects as his restoration of an old building for a new restaurant owned by the chef Cristof Danzi near the Alliance for the Arts in Lee County, Mr. Creightons 13-person company now holds contracts to put up 25 Wendys fast-food restaurants, 22 of them in Florida (most in the Tampa and Miami regions) and three in New Jersey. The company also just completed a Walgreens and a 7-Eleven in Charlotte County. But Mr. Creighton represents the extreme end of the 2011 happy-days recovery. Elsewhere, gains are modest this year with some notable exceptions in the short term. Were seeing an increase in permits, both residential and commercial, says an operations manager for Collier County who asked not to be named. Its a boom for tenant buildouts and commercial properties, with more activity than last year, but its still nowhere near the commercial activity of 2004-2005. Most days because of layoffs were understaffed for the work we have. In Lee County, a glance at the dollars invested so far in new construction $85 million worth in a mere six months or so would suggest the need for an immediate, county-wide celebration complete with fireworks and the bigband anthem, Happy Days Are Here Again. But the long-term reality is not quite so rosy, either in Lee, or in Collier or Charlotte. We had a few big projects that contribute to that ($85 million) figure, explains Joan LaGuardia, a Lee County spokeswoman. She doesnt mean the recently permitted $50,000 pole barn, for example. Or the five commercial gazebos for $55,000, or the four aluminum sheds for $12,500, or the seven commercial remodels for $243,850, or the 42 radio/ TV antennae and commercial satellite disks, for $395,200. Shes not even referring to the single permitted new church, worth a tidy $1 million. Instead, she cites seven major projects, three of them part of the new JetBlue Park complex, specially designed for the Beantown boys of summer. Those include batting tunnels worth $7.3 million, a $1.7 million maintenance building and the crme de la crme stadium, clubhouse and chiller plant, worth a cool $37.7 million. Since Collier County failed to lure the Chicago Cubs to Naples last year, and Charlotte has yet to attract a major-league team, taxpayers and tourists paying bed taxes in those counties wont be shelling out their greenback to pay for the construction, like theyre doing in Lee. Nor do those counties benefit from the 400 or so additional if temporary jobs for workers committed to finishing the stadium by the beginning of March 2011. Kraft Construction, the lead contractor on it, is obligated to utilize local people to the maximum extent possible, so many of those 400 jobs theyll drop to about 200 as we near the end of the project are held by people from here, says Lee County Commissioner Frank Mann. And thats about all he says that sounds optimistic. Id like to be upbeat, but if you press me for examples of other recovery projects, I am hard-pressed to show you where the numbers are positive. Money is increasingly tight. We just decreased the cost of impact fees for construction permits last week by 27 percent, and the builders were saying we have to do more than that, Commissioner Mann says. A lot of them would like us to eliminate impact fees. Collier County has impact fees higher than Lees, and Charlotte has fees substantially lower than Lees. As he sees it, We still have a lingering recession impacted by 25,000 vacant homes, and an unemployment rate thats still hovering up near 12 percent. Until thats absorbed, youre going to feel the pain. Commissioner Mann, however, appears positively optimistic compared to his colleague, Commissioner Brian Bigelow. Is the construction industry as we knew it going to recover and return to its previous rate of activity? he asks rhetorically. Never. Energy costs will make it financially impossible to build and maintain suburban sprawl and all the road improvements necessary for sustaining it expressways and their many overpasses on top of overpasses would ruin our quality of life, repeating an east coast of Florida here on the west coast. If I have anything to do with it, that wont happen. So another, much more sedate and locally focused economy will have to be created, he suggests. Commissioner Bigelows assessment, in turn, appears to be a model of robust enthusiasm compared to some analysts. A recent report published by New Urban News describing the Forum on Land and the Built Environment held at Harvard University began this way: The building industry is in deep depression, with housing starts at their lowest levels since data began to be kept a half-century ago. Pulte Homes, one of the nations largest builders, reported losses of more than a billion dollars for 2010. Signs of a turnaround for the industry, one of the primary engines of growth for the U.S. economy for two or three generations, have been sought since 2009 but are always over the horizon. Arthur C. Nelson, one of the nations most prescient housing market researchers, says the worst is yet to come. The industry faces demographic and economic forces that will apply unrelenting downward pressure on the market for the next decade. On the ground, meanwhile, people keep moving forward.The way forwardBeyond the famous green wall of the new Red Sox stadium that sits like a creamy dollop on the face of the most populous county on the southwest coast, officials issued permits for seven new commercial buildings in May, valued at more than $1 million, they said. By contrast, in May 2010, builders put up almost $3 million in new buildings. On the residential side, however, contractors pulled 52 permits to build single-family houses collectively valued at more than $10 million in unincorporated Lee. That was the highest monthly total for single-family permits since June 2008, says Ms. LaGuardia. She attributed the number to large builders completing existing subdivisions. Which hasnt happened in Charlotte County but that doesnt mean things arent bubbling along. In Charlotte to date in 2011, more than 20 new commercial structures have been permitted, with only one residential. And in Collier, more than 5,200 permits have been issued, most for renovation. Im encouraged. I see some growth, says Kay Tracy, interim director of the Charlotte Economic Development council. Citing such companies as Boyd Electric, a technology company, and Arcadia Aerospace in Punta Gorda, she describes these businesses as potential growers even in a down economy which add to the soft construction resurgence. And they bring permanent jobs. We have a count of about 96 new positions now that companies are planning to add, she notes.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 A9 Not only that, but the counties are working together, rather than behaving like little islands unto themselves, she observes. That helps everybody. All of which may not be quite what many hope. Nevertheless, such activity infuses some wealth and construction work, at least, into the regions economy.The view from the worksiteTo anybody with a job, things are looking up. I think the recession and its aftermath made people afraid to invest (in buildings or homes) even if they had money they put a lot of stuff on hold until they could see whats going on, says Adnan Ahmedic, co-owner of the Naples-based A2D Architecture. But now were starting to see a few more projects were doing tenant improvements for businesses and gated communities in Collier and Lee, and drafting services for builders updating their custom-home designs. Builders and related businesses that managed to survive until now in a tough economy are probably much more likely to make it, say the last men standing. Were one of the fortunate ones all of 2008, 2009 and most of 2010 was the long face (when we sought work), Mr. Creighton admits. They didnt want to see you, or talk to you. But in 2011 I think the momentum has changed. One of the benefits of the downturn there really are no benefits but if there is one, weve come to the best of the best contactors left. There was a time when we were going, Hey, do you have a right hand, can you hold a hammer? Now I might have a guy whos got 30 years as a plaster mason and worked in Spain and Italy and Miami. Theres a higher level of workmanship with better training by people who are able to get stuff done. But theyve all had to adapt, by fitting their work to the markets needs. We have 12 employees, and we havent let any of them go, says Bob Miller, co-owner with John Boyette of Boyette-Miller Construction, which maintains offices in Naples and Punta Gorda, and does work in both Collier and Charlotte counties. We were fortunate when this hit in 2006, explains Mr. Miller. Were quite flexible, we saw it coming so we switched gears, and with a little luck and lot of work, fell into our niche. Now, he says, about 90 percent of our work in Naples is remodeling, custom kitchen and bath stuff. And about 90 percent of the work we do in Punta Gorda is commercial. In Punta Gorda, for example, Im on my 11th doctors office (this year), Mr. Miller says. Pay and production have to be tailored to the market, he notes, which is part of the companys flexibility. In Naples, a custom kitchen job might run from $38,000 to almost $50,000, Mr. Miller notes, while in Punta Gorda he might bill in the $25,000 range. Its very competitive. Were making money now, but I work longer hours for the same money I could get with less effort in 2005, he admits. As do many. Were all making less, says Mr. Creighton. And we ask a lot from our employees. My guys work 24/7. And none are complaining.

Delicious genes Redneck chroniclesSomehow, upscale restaurateurs believe that diners will soon willingly pay more for a beef dish if it comes with disclosure of the DNA of the actual cow being eaten, according to a May Associated Press report. People want to know where their food is coming from, said one excited chef, lauding the knowledge to be gleaned from a calfs upbringing. (A more practical beef-supply executive added that DNA can help identify the multiple animals whose parts were used in hunks of ground beef a 10-pound package of which may include contributions from hundreds of different cows.) Zachary W ood y, 21, of Calhoun, Ga., was charged with aggravated assault in May after stabbing a friend. Allegedly, Mr. Woody had escalated what was initially just a fistfight over whether Fords are better than Chevrolets. Joseph Hayes, 48, was arrested in South Memphis, Tenn., in June after allegedly threatening (with a gun in his waistband) the hostess of a birthday party to which his kids had been invited but which ran out of cake and ice cream. Yall didnt save my kids no damn ice cream and cake, he was heard to say, and I aint scared to go to jail. Cant possibly be trueIt was not difficult to find critics when the Orlando-area government job service engine Workforce Central Florida said it was spending more than $70,000 of federal stimulus money to help the laid-off by handing out 6,000 satiny capes for jobless superheroes to fight Dr. Evil Unemployment. (Absolutely absurd was the reaction of a laid-off customer-service representative.) Several critics interviewed by the Orlando Sentinel noted that such an awkward program further erodes the unemployeds fragile self-respect. WCF, though, remained convinced. In the words of a spokeswoman, Everyone is a superhero in the fight against unemployment. Inexplicable An April Associated Press story, citing federal government sources, reported that 247 people on the terrorist watch list were nonetheless legally permitted to purchase guns in 2010 about the same number who did so legally in 2009. In May, Oklahoma judge Susie Pritchett, receiving guilty pleas from a $31 drug-deal raid in 2010 that netted a mother and her two grown children, sentenced the mother and son to probation, but the 31-year-old daughter to 12 years in prison (just because the daughter showed no ... remorse). Sounds like a joke Night club singer Simon Ledger was arrested following a performance at the Driftwood Beach Bar on Britains Isle of Wight in April after a patron complained to police. Mr. Ledger was covering the 1974 hit Kung Fu Fighting, and two customers of Chinese descent reported that they felt victims of illegal racially aggravated harassment. Leslie Clarke, 29, turned himself in to police in Darwin, Australia, in May after authorities released surveillance tape of a break-in and vandalism at the Hidden Valley Tavern. Mr. Clarke, a large man, confessed to going on a drunken prowl with friends, but said he remembered the break-in only when he saw the video and recognized his distinctive image from the back, including several inches of his butt crack. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEOops!Oswind David was convicted of firstdegree assault in a 2006 trial in New York City, but unknown to him, his lawyer and the judge, the charge had already been dismissed by another judge due to prosecutorial error. Nonetheless, Mr. David has been in prison since his conviction, serving a 23-year term, and was freed only in May when the error came to light. (However, the New York City district attorney still resisted releasing Mr. David, arguing that only the first-degree part had been dismissed. A judge finally freed Mr. David on bail while prosecutors ponder reopening the case.) Urban legend come to lifeToo-good-to-be-true stories have circulated for years about men who accidentally fell, posterior first, onto compressed-air nozzles and self-inflated to resemble dough boys, usually with fatal results. However, in May in Opotiki, New Zealand, trucker Steven McCormack found himself in similar circumstances, and had it not been for quick-thinking colleagues who pulled him away, he would have been killed as the air, puncturing a butt ock, had already begun separating tissue from muscle. Mr. McCormack was hospitalized in severe pain, but the air gradually seeped from his body (according to a doctor, in the way air usually seeps from a body). Unclear on the conceptIn May, a federal appeals court reinstated the Americans with Disabilities Act lawsuit filed in 2007 by Darrell Miller after he was fired as a bridge maintenance worker by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Mr. Miller had been medically diagnosed with a fear of heights, and could not work on many projects, but a lower court dismissed his lawsuit, concluding that working at heights was an unavoidable condition of bridge maintenance. (The appeals court said that a jury might find that bridge maintenance could be done in teams with one worker always on the ground.)

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 A11 News-Press Publisher Mei Mei Chan terminated the daily papers partnership with WGCU Public Media, the local PBS and NPR affiliate. The move came after the public broadcaster sent out a fundraising letter Ms. Chan found objectionable. The end of the partnership means the two entities will no longer trade space and airtime to promote each others content a deal valued at thousands of dollars for both. Perhaps more disappointing to readers and listeners is the end of News-Press writer Amy Bennett Williams weekly radio essays and the occasional news projects where the two entities teamed up to create content. The newspaper and radio station shared an award last year for a show about health care on WGCUs Gulf Coast Live. You make reference several times to other media as a way to bolster your own positioning. This negative portrayal serves to denigrate other media, wrote Ms. Chan in a sharply worded letter to WGCU Station Manager Rick Johnson last month. Its a marketing piece, not an academic treatise on the state of media, Mr. Johnson said about the fundraising letter. What was said in the letter is that there are some Legacy Media organizations facing tough times, and I dont think thats untrue.The News-Press, which is owned by the Gannett Corp., laid off 14 employees last week. WGCU wont fill a vacant reporter position as part of its strategy to deal with more than half a million dollar shortfall created when Gov. Rick Scott eliminated the states contribution to the local public broadcasting station. Some of the Legacy Media newspapers, magazines and commercial broadcasters are in trouble with paid circulations declining and advertising revenues cannibalized by cable, the Internet and every other form of New Media digital delivery, the fundraising letter that went out on May 23 reads. The document that was mailed to donors portrayed other news outlets in sharp decline and unable to report as thoroughly as they once did. The letter touted WGCU as the new bridge between the Legacy Media and the New Media. Ms. Chan called the terms Legacy and New outdated, considering that organizations such as hers have embraced the Internet and are taking steps to be more relevant to an online audience. She also said this is not the first time WGCU has put down other media outlets in order to raise funds. Both Ms. Chan and Mr. Johnson spoke highly of each others organizations and said they would like to overcome their differences and partner again in the future.

Maybe stand guard is more like it. Here in Naples, a unique self-organizing system of sentinels is brewing to watch over local history. These sentinels embody the essence of leadership: doing the right thing for the right reason. It doesnt get any more right than when that reason is to honor heritage, family or community. Heres a bit about some of our communitys sentinels. Chester Keene served as a sentinel (bailiff) for our countys first woman judge, Lynne Hixon-Holley. He introduced us at Naples Backyard History to Acrefoot Johnson, a relative who was known as much for his ability to expeditiously deliver the mail long distances on foot as he was for the size 12 boots that supported his 6-foot, 7-inch, 250-pound frame. Sam Colding, former Collier County tax assessor, is as renowned for his tall tales and tenderness as Acrefoot was for his speed. Mr. Colding is the only speaker I have ever introduced to an audience where someone has later said, I just want to hug that man. Thats how we all feel about him. Hes the archetype of grandfather the epitome of unadulterated love for family, friends, God and community. Just like Mr. Keene, only funnier. Im stumped as to how to describe Jean Walker Humphries, whose family developed Aqualane Shores and is responsible for the Lorenzo Walker Institute of Technology and Technical High School. Perhaps impish joy on Red Bull best illustrates this old timer. Jessie Allen Chesser, author of East of the River, can be compared to Grandma Moses in that she, too, is a late-blooming artist whose readers can feel or sense the joy of life illustrated in her work. Now we can add heritage activist to Ms. Chessers credits. Mr. Keene, Mr. Colding, Ms. Walker-Humphries and Ms. Chesser all personify love for family and community with a tenderness that if it were canned and put up for sale today, it would be in such high demand that Wynns Market wouldnt be able to keep it on the shelvesConverging charactersA few months back, Mr. Keene and Mr. Colding introduced me to Early B. Smith. It was right after Mr. Smiths 100th birthday, and they had spent several hours being filmed by Naples Backyard History in a conversation with the new centenarian. It seems Mr. Keene found a new calling with that interview; today you can find him, a somewhat reluctant merchant of history, on Facebook posting photos, asking questions and sharing the magic of a lost but not forgotten time in and around Collier County. Mr. Colding, in the meantime, researches old tax records for answers to new questions about the topic of the day. Mr. Keene and Mr. Colding have since gone back to Mr. Smith and asked him to share more stories about the early days in our community. It seems these two sentinels have a soulful yearning to save such accounts simply because they need to be told and heard. No single person or group can accumulate all the stories that need to be preserved. It will take a community of sentinels. The aforementioned men and women have thrown down a gauntlet, even if it is only metaphorical. Time is of the essence. Ms. Humphries is fast and furiously working on the Wall of Fame at Naples High School that will add a Memorial Spirit Award this fall to pay homage to her grandparents, Rex and Elsie Lehman, the founders of the schools first football team. Unlike NHSs most recent state champion team, whose players wore uniforms made especially for them, the 1954 team donned borrowed uniforms (which Mr. Lehman drove to Fort Myers to pick up) until they could afford to purchase their own. Ms. Chesser has been on a not-so-quiet campaign to champion the cause of heritage ever since she learned of a curious plan to change the name of the Gordon River Bridge to the Haldeman Bridge. The reasons for a name change escape her (and many others). Growing up on the Gordon River holds a special meaning for her, but just as important, she notes, the river and bridge hold a special meaning for the character and identity of our community.The gauntlet is oursNone of these reluctant heroes is the type to enjoy the spotlight, so I hope they will forgive me. But when the spirit of common glories in the past is working so hard to do greater things in the present for neither money nor recognition, we cannot afford to ignore it. These sentinels of local history need to know that when they are gone, they, too, will not be forgotten. It takes sentinels to protect, preserve local historyBY LOIS BOLIN __________________________Dr.Bo@Naplesbackyardhistory.orgUNDERCOVER HISTORIAN COURTESY PHOTOKellys Fish House at the Gordon River Bridge.

Presents the2011Golden Baby Shoe Awards Food journalist Barry Estabrook reveals the huge human and environmental cost of the $10 billion fresh tomato industry in Tomatoland based on his James Beard Award-winning article. The story begins simply, with Mr. Estabrook finding himself behind a heavy truck in Florida, laden with what appear to be green Granny Smith apples. Some of these orbs begin to fly off the truck, but they turn out to be tomatoes, so plasticine and so identical they could have been stamped out by a machine. A few have cracks, most are unblemished, and not one is smashed, despite the long drop at 60 mph. The story ends with Tomatoland, an expos of todays agribusiness systems, which according to Mr. Estabrook, produce industrial tomatoes as lacking in nutrition as they are flavor. Of all the fruits and vegetables we eat, none suffers at the hand of factory farming more than a tomato grown in the winter fields of Florida, which accounts for one-third of the fresh tomatoes grown in the United States. The book argues that modern agribusiness cant deliver a decent-tasting tomato in large part because its essentially against the law; regulations set by the Florida Tomato Committee determine what a tomato should look like, and the older, tasty varieties dont conform to the rules of color and shape. As Mr. Estabrook explains in this fact-filled yet approachable book, consumers and society pay a price when they take taste and thought out of food purchases. Among Mr. Estabrooks findings are: The tomato got its start in the arid climat es of Sou th America, making Floridas humid weather possibly the worst place for tomato growing. This results in heavy use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. The underpaid w or kers in Floridas tomato fields are exposed to chemicals daily, with a toll including cancers, respiratory ailments, and severe birth defects among newborns. Thats not all one assistant U.S. attorney referred to Floridas tomato fields as ground zero for modern-day slavery, complete with beatings and being sold to crew bosses to pay debts. A tomato today contains less vitamin C, thiamin, niacin and calcium and 1 4 times as much sodium as its 1960s counterpart.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA22 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 HEALTHY LIVINGWhere you live matters. And if you are fortunate enough to live in Collier County, chances are youre in a lot better shape than most people. According to a new study from researchers at the University of Washingtons Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation and the Imperial College London, women in Collier County have the longest life expectancy in the United States 86 years, second in the world only to Japan. Men here have the second-longest life expectancy in the U.S. 80.2 years, which lags only Fairfax County, Va., by 0.9 years. As defined in an article published in Population Health Metrics, life expectancy is how long someone born in the U.S. in 2007 would be expected to live compared with those born decades earlier. Its no secret what cuts life short. According to the articles authors, the most preventable determiners of shorter life expectancy include obesity, diet, smoking, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, alcohol and elevated fats in the blood. The authors note that availability of care and insurance coverage also are significant contributors to good health, loosely correlated with standards of living and educational levels. And of course, access to quality health care is essential. The University of Washington statistical study confirms another recent accolade for our Collier County. As reported a few months ago, for the second year in a row, a study sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and conducted by the University of Wisconsins Population Health Institute ranked Collier County the healthiest overall of the 67 counties in Florida. The rankings of health o utcomes, which account for 50 percent of the metrics and are based on statistics before 2007, are measured as the combination of mortality (death rate) and morbidity (sickness). In other words, in healthiness, were No. 1! Digging deeper into the local numbers, we find that poor physical and mental health days have decreased modestly over the past year, while the number of low birth weight infants has increased minimally, which isnt good. Health factors such as smoking and obesity remain unchanged, while sexually transmitted diseases have increased. The teen birth rate is minimally lower, but single-parent households have increased markedly. Violent crime and motor vehicle death rates are both moving in the right direction. Unemployment and children living in poverty continue to plague us locally, a tragedy in a community like ours with abundant resources. On the other hand, high school graduation rates are up, with 47 percent of students going on to higher education. So as good as our ranking is, we still have much to do to ensure the health of our community. Toward that end, the Collier County Health Department has created Sustaining Excellence, a consortium of social service, public, not-for-profit and for-profit institutions focused on opportunity areas. We have already convened downtown in NCHs Telford Auditorium to discuss ways to improve the health of all in our community. Local access to great health care and other resources has a real impact. I am proud and humbled to represent one of Collier Countys leading medical institutions, which has again been shown to make a difference.

Although it cant prevent aging, the compound in red wine known as resveratrol might make growing old more tolerable, according to a University of Florida review of research. News stories have long touted resveratrol as a cure for various diseases and a preventative against aging. Were all looking for an antiaging cure in a pill, but it doesnt exist. What does exist, however, shows promise of lessening many of the scourges and infirmities of old age, says UF exercise psychologist Heather Hausenblas, Ph.D., one of the researchers involved in the study. Human clinical research on resveratrol has found it has antiaging, anti-carcinogenic, antiinflammatory and antioxidant properties, but more research of its benefits is needed, Dr. Hausenblas says.The study, which appeared online in Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, examined results gleaned from thousands of laboratory studies with enzymes, cultured cells and animals. It was conducted by Dr. Hausenblas and fellow researchers James Smoliga of Marywood University and Joseph Baur of the University of Pennsylv ania School of Medicine. They examined current knowledge of the effects of resveratrol on humans in hopes that the information will be used to guide future human clinical trials.Despite numerous clinical studies on resveratrols tonic effects on animals, there is little evidence that it benefits human health. Thats because there havent been many studies on humans, Dr. Hausenblas says. However, she points out, for years many scientists have thought that a link between resveratrol and human health exists. The French people, for example, enjoy low levels of cardiovascular disease, even though their diets are rich in saturated fats and oils. Some researchers think the reason for this paradox lies in Frances national drink red wine, which is the most important dietary source of resveratrol.Exactly how resveratrol works isnt yet fully understood. Correlating factors such as metabolism, the chemical interplay of molecules, genetics, exercise, age, dosage and many others all play a role. Among resveratrols most intriguing aspects is how it functions as an antioxidant. Oxidation is a natural chemical process in living tissues that results in a transfer of electrons. When this happens, groups of atoms are formed called free radicals that can cause cell damage that in turn provides a pathway for diseases. Antioxidants, however, suppress free radicals. Its not so easy to say resveratrol is the main factor, Dr. Hausenblas says. Its one piece of the overall puzzle that reduces the free radicals. The UF study also reveals that various clinical trials indicate resveratrol prevents the growth of some cancers in mice, inhibits enzymes that cause inflammation, shrinks tumors and increases blood flow, thus reducing cardiovascular diseases. In many cases, it also extends the life of obese animals. Some evidence also shows that resveratrol could one day be used to help regulate insulin sensitivity in diabetic patients.Dr. Hausenblas and her colleagues believe research into resveratrols potential will become increasingly more important as the nations 76 million baby boomers grow older.

Humane Society Naples recommends the following tips to help prepare your pet for loud fireworks and booming thunder: 1. Accustom your pet to loud noises early on when they are puppies. Bang pots and pans and then give your pet a treat, suggests Tiffany Campbell, a trainer with HSN. 2. For older dogs or anxiety-prone pets, give them a crate to hide in. Cover this den with a towel for added security. 3. Turn on the TV or radio to create ambient noise to lessen the shock of sudden loud noises. 4. Speak calmly to your pet and offer soft massage. TLC goes a long way in easing anxiety. So do treats. 5. Try an anxiety wrap such as Thundershirts. Used by leading behavior experts across the country, these Velcro-wrap shirts comfort pets, akin to the time-tested trick of swaddling an infant. 6. Another option is to rub a sheet of fabric softener along the coat of your dog prior to a storm. Static electricity, which often accompanies a thunderstorm, causes fur to stand up and this alarms your pet. 7. For severe cases, visit HSNs clinic medical director or your veterinarian and ask if your pet needs anti-anxiety medication for oc casional use. How do we know so much about stress in pets? The animals at HSN sometimes arrive in an anxious state, due to their sudden environmental changes. Transitioning pets from a house to a shelter has given our staff a keen understanding of how environmental noises can play a role in a pets stress level. Having a place to hide, soothing voices and anxiety wraps often help the shelter pets manage stress. Preparing yourself and your pet ahead of time is key.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 NEWS A25 that look cute but dont move too much actual air. Together, tiny tracheas, lumps of flesh and wee nostrils are called a brachycephalic airway syndrome, and while surgery can fix a few of the problems and provide for a better life for some of these dogs, the threat of heat exhaustion always remains.When they try to dump excess body heat through panting, brachycephalics have to work so hard to move enough air through their tiny tracheas that they actually end up generating more heat and making things worse. It would be like having a coal-fired air-conditioner in your house; when the house gets warm, the A/C kicks on, but the heat from the coal fire would make the house warmer. When the weather turns warm and humid, these dogs need to stay in a carefully controlled and cool environment to avoid overheating. Signs of heat exhaustion the last step before heat stroke include bright red gums, an inability to get up and loud, raspy panting. Dogs that are going into full-on heat stroke often vomit, become severely lethargic and can have explosive diarrhea. Once heat stroke develops, cooling them down is the top priority but it often is not enough. Some dogs will go down the slippery and tragic slope into multi-organ failure and be unable to be saved, even with days of ICUlevel care. Prevention is the key with this condition, so remember to keep these dogs in a cool environment and always watch out for heat exhaustion. If you think your dog is suffering from heat stroke or exhaustion, douse him in cool water, get him out of the heat and calmed down, and head for the nearest veterinarian without delay. Even a few minutes can make all the difference in the world. BY DR. TONY JOHNSON_______________________________Special to Florida WeeklyBulldogs, pugs need protection from the heatdogs almost all have narrower windpipes relative to other dogs of comparable size a condition known as tracheal hypoplasia. Bulldogs often have a trachea that would keep a Yorkie quite happy, but for the bulldog, it must be like breathing through a coffee stirrer. When we have to intubate brachycephalic dogs for surgery (which involves placing a soft, plastic tube into their trachea to deliver oxygen and anesthetic gases), they will often wake up with the tube in place after the procedure and seem quite happy to have an open and bigger airway for the first time in their lives. Most other dogs cant wait to get the dang tube out! Brachycephalic dogs can also have little blobs of tissue in the back of their throat (known as laryngeal saccules) that can turn inside out and block the airway, and they often have teensy-weensy little nostrils Mother Nature usually does things pretty economically, trying to get genes passed on from one generation to the next with a minimum of fuss. When people step in and start mucking about is usually when the troubles begin. When we breed for a particular look (rather than for a purpose intended to maximize the chances of passing on genes), function gets tossed out the window at the expense of form, and things can get bogged down pretty quickly. Lots of different dogs suffer from problems because of fad breeding, but perhaps none so much as the short-nosed, or brachycephalic breeds such as pugs, English Bulldogs and the like. As the weather turns warmer, we see a lot more of these dogs suffering from heat stroke in our emergency unit at Purdues School of Veterinary Medicine. Dogs are largely unable to sweat. Maybe a little around the feet (sometimes my more nervous patients will leave cute little pawshaped sweat prints on the exam table), but not through their skin as people can. They regulate their body temperature largely though panting, which dumps heat from their bodies through evaporation of water from their tongues rather than their skin. In order to keep cool through panting, dogs need a good airway. Brachycephalic PET TALES Breathless Bulldogs and other short-faced dogs have been bred for a look that makes breathing a struggle.

Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote On April 15, Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney in Manhattan, shut down the American online poker industry. Indictments were brought against Isai Scheinberg of Poker Stars and Raymond Bitar of Full Tilt. The charges were illegal gambling and money laundering. The domain names of these poker sites were seized by the FBI. It is said that both sites and government are working to return funds to the United States players. PPA, Poker Players Alliance, is working to reestablish online poker in the US. They argue, and several states agree, that poker is a skill, not gambling. The tilt debate goes on, each party producing its tilt spin at full-tilt, full-speed-ahead inclination, like quintessential tilt of lance thrust. In poker, the word tilt refers to the poor card play that results from a players emotional upset. This is true to the Germanic etymology of the word, its meaning unsteady before the meaning of slant became the more common usage. There is also the tilt shut down response to pinball machine shaking. This tilt may hold meaning tilts of both unsteadiness (in the player) and slant (in the machine). Even those who prefer to believe that they do not gamble do gambol and gyre on the wabe of the swiftly tilting planet. And on June 21, this planet experienced summer solstice. This is the northern hemisphere day of the longest daylight. And the summer joy of thawed ground for flowers and herbs has been celebrated by many traditions, long before concerns for and against global warming. In this instant of time the 23.5 degree axial tilt of the earth, as well as the axial tilt of the moon, are most inclined to the sun. The sun (Latin: sol) stands still (Latin: sistere). We live on a plant that tilts, a planet not upright. In this wabe of hurtling home we can only gyre and gimble. We exist in violation of all logic and expectation. Yet this crazy tilt underpins all life on earth. In an upright world, the sun would be ever over equator, eternal summer solstice. And the poles would be ever winter solstice. There would be no seasons. Between equatorial desert and frozen poles there would be a nasty in between of violently circulating hot and cold air. But we are fortunate. In Freuds words, Something that ought to have remained hidden is coming to light. We feel the embodied tilt anomaly of absurd sensation, gratefully. Who can say anything more?

B8-9 Going, goingGrand Estates Auction Company CEO sells her own home to the highest bidder. B11 INSIDEThe Fool knowsWhats a hostile takeover? B6 Index shows recovery is for the affluentThe road to economic recovery has been a vastly different trek for American households earning less than $50,000 per year than it has been for more affluent consumers, according to two years worth of data from the Consumer Reports Index. For more affluent households (earning $100,000-plus), economic recovery began as far back as February 2010 when the Consumer Reports Sentiment Index score for this group moved into positive territory (above 50). Since then, sentiment among this affluent group (18 percent of Americans) has continued to climb to a two-year high (54.8). During the same period, sentiment levels of lower-income households (earning less than $50,000) bottomed out in October 2009. Since then, sentiment has risen slightly among this group that represents 50 percent of the U.S. population, but remains firmly entrenched in negative territory. The Consumer Reports Index is a nationally representative measure of the economy from the consumers perspective. Each month the Consumer Reports Index surveys Americans about how they feel, the economic problems they encounter and their spending habits through five key measures. We are seeing a tale of two very different recoveries, said Ed Farrell, a director of Survey Research at the Consumer Reports National Research Center. While things have been improving for the wealthiest Americans for some time, lower-income families still have very little to be positive about. The disparity in sentiment levels may be due to the fact that lowerincome households have faced more pronounced and frequent financial troubles throughout the last two years. The Consumer Reports Trouble Tracker Index, which is a monthly measure of eight financial troubles such as the ability to afford health care and mortgage payments, shows that financial suffering among lower-income Americans SEE AFFLUENT, B4 BY DAVID ROYSEThe News Service of Florida RICK BISSONETTES MOTHER NATALIE GREETED me when I walked into Bisous, his salon in Punta Gorda.

But there is often huge discomfort in doing so and oft times, the money issues are left unaddressed until such time as a problem arises. For school-aged children, money is an issue when their friends ask to borrow funds to cover a snack or a movie ticket. During elementary school, a child will likely already want spending money. For middle school and high school children, a parents money gives status. College students are all broke and that seems to be cool, but even they need pizza funds and partying money. But after college, money is needed for a first apartment, for marriage, for a down payment to buy the first home; to help in providing a grandchilds education; and, later in life, there will be issues with inheritances. For spouses, money issues surround housing choices, retirement planning, working extra jobs, taking work out of town, charitable giving, how to help pay for elderly parents cost, etc. Dating and money issues are a can of worms that are partially cultural, partially economic, partially societal and even spiritual and religious. Money issues can (and should) lead to a long talk. Unfortunately for some, the talk is a negotiation. For others, its nice, something akin to a dance between a man and woman. When both parties have a spirit of generosity, unselfishness, self sufficiency and responsibility, the money issue is often not about getting someone to shore-up their financial part; it might be drawing lines in the sand to protect the other person, to get the other person to stop doing so much, to stop working so hard, and to stop giving so much, etc. The opportunities in a healthy relationship for sharing and caring are limitless; for both parties, money is not a scarce resource because it is unbridled love being given. From the time children are young, they are learning about money mostly from watching their parents. So whatever skills, attitudes, and perspectives a parent has will often be passed down to children. If you dont like your spouses money attitudes, the chances of you undoing his or her deeply ingrained financial behaviors are pretty slim. However, like religion and ethics, its best for you and your spouse to agree on how your children will be raised and then provide a united front. Here are some ideas for talking about money values that work with a spouse and that will set useful examples for your kids: 1. Talk about money no matter how painful. 2. Understand that, if money is the number one reason for divorces (even above unfaithfulness), then it probably is a critical issue about which couples need to come to common agreement. Its better to agree before getting married or cohabitating. Much easier to work out how the toothpaste is squeezed than agree about whether money is spent on gambling, fancy clothes, boats, high-end cars, motorcycles, RVs, etc. 3. Agree. Either come to an agreement or agree to disagree, but do not lie about money dont hide it, dont lie about what was spent or how much debt there is, etc.4. Do not make the other party wrong; it can be just that their ideas dont work for you but their ideas need not be rejected as wrong. Such labeling makes it hard for the other person to show up for another money conversation with a positive attitude; they might be labeled wrong again.5. Accept that money mistakes will be made. Best if they are limited in size. Best if they are caught early on. Best if there is enough trust in the relationship that the problem can be shared and the other person offers solutions and help. 6. Do not make money into a god. It is only money. It can be put to good use and enjoyed and offer security and bless others but in the end, it is not the definition of human self worth or a lifes achievements. Having been raised by a father, albeit a successful NYC attorney, who barely survived attacks on the Hornet aircraft carrier while he was the radar reader in WWII (and, yes, taking out radar was a kamikaze pilots primary goal), I learned the expression, It is only money. When you have looked death squarely in its face, many of lifes money problems are more easily right sized to be only money. 7. Money is never an adequate payment for a relationship in need of love and direction. Many of us know a man who just gives money to his wife to keep her pacified. Many of us know the parent who lacks a childs love and instead gives big cars and trips to keep some form of relationship intact. Many of us see arm candy and understand that financial gifts are a platform for that relationship, etc. When you start down these roads, understand that they will ultimately dead-end in emotional, character and relationship voids for all participants. Good relationships built on love, character and healthy boundaries will save you mega-amounts of money. It could save you from the financial loss of divorce(s); children with addictive behaviors needing rehab; children with expensive, addictive spending habits; crashed cars; dating partners who endlessly need loans; inordinately expensive college choices; etc. And those are the real costs, having not mentioned the indirect costs that are avoided. You might spend more time focusing on your relationships and less time worrying about saving money and earning highest returns; in so doing, you might have saved a bundle.

Florida Media Group LLC is an EOE, Drug Free Workplace. Visit us online at www.FloridaWeekly.com One of the biggest areas of disparity between the two groups in the past two years has been their ability to afford medical coverage and prescription medication. For more affluent Americans, affordability is a minor issue fewer than 5 percent reported having difficulty paying. While it has been in decline in recent months, this has been a key problem for lower-income households during the recession 1-in-4 at its peak. The dream of home ownership between the two groups has also been a vastly different picture. Ninety-percent of affluent households claim to own a home, while only half of the lowerincome group can say the same. Missed mortgage payments among households earning less than $50,000 have soared, and approached 9 percent in June. Among the more affluent Americans, missed mortgage payment claims are below 2 percent and falling. In addition to financial woes, the employment market remains a key factor in the gap among affluent and lowerincome households during the recession. The Employment Index shows the change in employment of those who reported starting a new job versus those who have lost their job or were laid off in the past 30 days. An index score below 50 indicates more jobs were lost than gained, while a score of more than 50 indicates more jobs were gained than lost in the past 30 days. In the past two years, lower-income households (earning less than $50,000) have been burdened with declining prospects, and an employment environment that was shedding more jobs than it is creating for 23 of the past 24 months. In the meantime, more affluent Americans (earning more than $100,000), hardly experienced a decline, and have benefited from a much healthier market that appears to be adding more jobs than it is losing. According to Consumer Reports Retail Index, growth in retail in the past year has been fueled nearly exclusively by the most affluent group of Americans. Spending among households earning less than $50,000 has been largely stagnant since June 2009. For more information, visit www. ConsumerReports.org. AFFLUENTFrom page 1 BUSINESS BRIEFS

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 THE MOTLEY FOOL Conjuring images of the wealthy wizards of Wall Street, you might envision busy men barking buy and sell orders all day long in a testosterone-fueled frenzy. But the most successful investor of our time is Warren Buffett, and he doesnt operate that way. In our latest book, Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl: And Why You Should, Too (HarperBusiness, $26), LouAnn Lofton explains why. As Lofton notes, Buffett has famously said that temperament is more important than intellect when it comes to investing success. And his temperament tends to be more feminine than masculine. Hes patient and does thorough research. He doesnt buy the latest whiz-bang technology company that he cant understand. He doesnt take excessive risks. He aims to never sell the companies he invests in. He doesnt do something just to do something. Yep, Warren Buffett invests like a girl. So how exactly do women invest? Well, women spend more time researching their investment choices and tend to take less Invest Like a Girl and Warren Buffett 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. Business Hostilities Q Whats a hostile takeover? B.L., Opelika, Ala.A A typical takeover is friendly, with one company agreeing to be bought by another. Managers from each firm will meet with each other and freely share information about themselves. In a hostile takeover, though, the acquisition target is not too thrilled or cooperative. A hostile takeover happens when a would-be acquirer sees some strategic value in another company. It may make friendly overtures and be rebuffed. If so, it may then move on to dealing directly with the targets shareholders, offering to buy their shares from them for either a certain amount in cash or an exchange of stock. If enough shareholders respond, the acquirer can gain control.In order to entice shareholders, the offer will generally be for a price significantly higher than the targets current stock price. (Companies whose share prices have slumped are extravulnerable to takeovers.) Some high-profile hostile takeover bids have included IBM for Lotus, Johnson & Johnson for Cordis, AT&T for NCR, WorldCom for MCI, Alcoa for Reynolds Metals, Norfolk & Southern for Conrail, and Hilton for ITT.Q In its last quarterly earnings report, Dell beat earnings expectations but missed its revenue expectations. Shouldnt those two numbers move in lockstep? N.P., Tampa, Fla.A Not at all. Revenue is the top line and earnings the bottom, and in between there are many factors. If a companys revenue holds steady over a few years, but it adds many employees or beefs up its advertising, its expenses will rise and its earnings, or profits, will shrink. When you see a companys earnings growing faster than its revenue, that suggests that its becoming more efficient and its profit margin is increasing. Got a question for the Fool?

Women are also more likely to seek out information that challenges their assumptions, rather than relying only on data that confirm what they already thought. One study found that men trade 45 percent more often than women do, and although men are more confident investors, they tend to be overconfident. By trading more often and without enough research men reduce their net returns. But by trading less, women produce better returns, and also save on transaction costs and capital gains taxes. Even among the pros, women are impressive. A study by Hedge Fund Research tracked the performance of female-managed hedge funds from 2000 to 2009 and found that the funds managed by women returned an average 9.06 percent annually, walloping the 5.82 percent annual average weighted index of other funds.

It took about a week to go from $4.79 per share to $0.08. It was my first experience with a penny stock, and my broker never said a word to me about what I was getting into. He was a full-service broker, too. I hung in there and still am hanging. The company must have been listed on the pink sheets at the time, where shakier and less established companies tend to reside, but my broker, knowing I was very new to investing, never warned me about that. S.A.B., IndianapolisThe Fool Responds: Seems like you received only half-service, if that. New investors shouldnt be shy about asking lots of questions of their brokers and others. Dont think you have to hang onto the shares, though. If you lost a lot, you might want to close out the position and recognize a taxable loss. And then invest whatevers left in a more promising stock. The Motley Fool TakeJust over a decade ago, the Finnish mobilephone maker Nokia (NYSE: NOK) was the darling of the technology sector, but the stock has fallen from a peak of $56 to roughly $7. The outlook got worse recently, when Nokia significantly lowered its sales and profit expectations. The company is refocusing its strategy on smartphones, but its late to the party. New Nokia smartphones may debut at the end of the year, more than four years after the first iPhone. Nokia is still the worlds largest seller of mobile phones, but it dominates the less profitable segment of phones meant mainly just for talking.Nokia was a successful pioneer because those The Downfall of Nokia Name That CompanyFounded in 1852 to offer banking services and express delivery of valuables in the West, today one in three U.S. households does business with me.

It was a telecommunications company, expert in electronics, radio reception and signal processing. Software was somewhat secondary. But todays phones arent phones theyre versatile computers that offer telecommunications, too.Dropping its Symbian software was a good move for Nokia, but instead of adopting the obvious Android platform, Nokia opted for Microsofts. (Nokias new CEO was previously a Microsoft executive.) One has-been jumping into bed with another is rarely a sound technological plan, and though Microsoft may have many years of profitable business ahead of it from its legacy PC market, when it comes to new stuff like phones and MP3 players, its been disappointing.

These hairdressers online forays are far more ambitious than your average business website. I think were going to turn this entire industry on its ear, Mr. Bissonette said. He and Mr. Coykendall both got serious about the Internet two years ago when they launched www.Stylists411, a social network for the beauty industry. It has grown to about 9,000 members. Now theyre taking the beauty industrys sprawling, sometimes hyped-up trade shows the product demos and music, and all those booths and recreating them in a virtual reality world. Starting in July, beauty professionals will be able to purchase a booth from Mr. Bissonette and Mr. Coykendall. And anyone may register to attend the show at his or her convenience. Heres a look at the real virtual worlds of two unusual salon owners. Social network for beauticians Here youll find shampoo makers, nail salon owners, salespeople, colorists, and plenty more. A psychic has a page on the site so you may look into your beauty future. Basically I took Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace, modified it a little bit, and launched it, says Mr. Bissonette, a 51-year-old father of twin eight-yearold boys, and former rock guitarist from Massachusetts. Hes also an incurable workaholic, a quality he brings to all his pursuits. Back in the early 1980s, he used to drive into Boston twice a week to sit in on chemistry and physics classes at Massachusetts Institute of Technology both so that he could learn to better create the pyrotechnics that were so popular on stage in the 1980s, and so he could learn more precisely how to mix hair coloring agents. Now all that energy is directed toward online worlds. The aim of Stylists411 is to collect the sprawling beauty industry in a single website, he said, and allow industry professionals and customers to share tips or blog about trends or anything else that might be of interest to them. It is a place for his customers to find out of town beauticians, for instance. Another feature, the online store, attracts in part small-time manufactures that cant afford to advertise in traditional platforms such as a trade shows or magazines. That makes shopping there a boutique experience. Mr. Bissonette hopes Stylists411 will also foster friendly give-and-take between stylists in what he views has an oftencompetitive industry. Virtual reality trade showIn the comforting glow of your computer screen you enter a virtual mall, finding yourself at the ubiquitous information desk. Pick an aisle and you can scroll through various vendors booths like flipping through the music covers on an iPhone. Theres no limit to what vendors may post there, including live webinars, simulations and streaming video of real trade shows. Mr. Bissonette and Mr. Coykendall plan to tap into the marketing potential of their virtual trade show, created using Onstream Media Corporations MarketPlace 365. The stylists, manufacturers and others who purchase online booths will also have access to information that will help them market and advertise. When you register to attend the show, booth owners get that information, including your e-mail and phone number. Then your movement on the site is itemized so the booth owners know better how to market their products to each person who attends the virtual show, which is going on virtually all the time, of course. Its not a cold call, Mr. Bissonette said. A basic booth package at the virtual trade show costs $1,000 per month. Mr. Bissonette calculated that cost based on a few things. He reasons there are about 2 million beauty professionals in Florida, for example, but there were only 47,000 vendors at the industry trade show in Orlando one of the biggest in the state. With his virtual show, he plans to tap into the 85 percent who didnt attend. Mostly they dont go to the shows because its too expensive, Mr. Bissonette calculated, after tabbing up his own costs at a show, for gas and hotels, food, missing work and booth rental. For more elaborate exhibits, a booth at a traditional trade show may cost up to $5,000. Then the exhibitors hire camera crews, dancers and guest artists. And then you have to deal with the crowds. One manufacturer said he spent $80,000 and brought home $5,000 and felt that was a success, Mr. Bissonette said. The booth owners at the virtual show all naturally share in the marketing. For instance, if there are 25 booth owners who send out 5,000 e-mails, they have reached 125,000 people. Youll be able to register to attend or get a booth at the Virtual Reality Trade Show through Stylists411, starting in July. These websites are maintained in large part in the small back office at Bisous. We called it our war room, said Mr. Coykendall, of the time they spent there generating virtual ideas. We used to have papers everywhere.From band to beauty Mr. Coykendalls long black hair is streaked with gray and pulled into a ponytail at work. He got into the beauty industry years ago, inspired after meeting Vidal Sassoon in person at a salon that his sister owned. He grew up in a Santa Barbara home just a few hundred feet from the Pacific Ocean. Im just a typical California boy a lot of drag racing and surfing; I surfed until I was 47 years old, he said, conjuring up an image of a legion of teenagers bobbing in the waves and peeling out on palm-lined racetracks somewhere. Where Mr. Bissonette lives now, with his wife on Englewood Beach, the waves are too close together to make for good surfing, and are tiny compared to the Pacific. I do like to go body surfing when the hurricanes come in with all the kids, he said. Im definitely the oldest one out there. The day before the storm, the waves are still close together. But right before it hits the waves get bigger and farther apart, he said. A lot of the kids are out there even as the storm begins to come ashore. Its the same thing when the storms came into California we all went out. Mr. Bissone ttes b ackground is just as unique. He grew up in Duxbury, Mass., where his mother and late sister were hairdressers, and became a rock lead guitarist for hire, getting paid for the occasional gig with big-name bands that came to town. Otherwise he toured non-stop. He was in a band called Yes, Dear. But he tired of the touring life. In the early s he started sitting in on classes at MIT twice a week, and began his transition to the beauty industry. From his time at the prestigious school, hes still obsessed with making a neutron disappear but thats another story. Mr. Bissonette and his family live in Charlotte County. He followed his mother to Florida in 1993 to help care for his late sister, who was battling cancer. Ms. Bissonette claims her son is a better hairdresser than she was at her Massachusetts shop, Shear Happiness. Now she books appointments and greets customers when they come in the door. Asked if she thought her sons salon is different from hers, maybe more modern, Its really not, she said. The warmth was there, the comfy feeling. I think the atmosphere was much the same. Most of the people that come in are friends they become friends. Maybe theyll find friendship in the virtual world, too. Its certainly a different experience, although in some ways maybe even better than the real thing. BEAUTYFrom page 1EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYRick Bissonette launched Stylists411, his first Internet product, in 2009. His virtual trade show for beauty professionals is set to launch in July.

The European-style waterfront living at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club is attracting an increasing number of international buyers. According to the developer, 25 percent of the owners at Miromar Lakes are from countries other than the United States, and that number continues to grow. We have had substantial interest from Canada, Germany, the UK and Russia, and weve seen buyers from Denmark, Switzerland, even South Africa, says Jerry Schmoyer, executive vice president and general manager of Miromar Development Group. Right now we have residents from 11 countries in addition to every region of the United States, he says, adding that diversity offers something the discriminating international buyer wont find anywhere else in Southwest Florida. During the past year, buyers from outside the United States have accounted for one in every four existing homes sold in Florida. Southwest Florida International Airport reports year over year international traffic is up 21 percent, with German and Canadian passengers making up the largest segment. The Florida Association of Realtors says Canadians account for 36 percent of international purchases. The largest segment of international homeowners at Miromar Lakes is from Canada. Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club won the 2011 National Association of Home Builders Gold Award for Community of the Year, the first Florida community in the 29-year history of the awards to receive the top honor. The award recognizes Miromar Lakes as the No. 1 residential community in the United States. The title has continued to build Miromar Lakes reputation both nationally and internationally. The fusion of beachfront homes along the waterfront at Miromar Lakes creates a tapestry that invokes the feeling of an Italian-inspired Riviera. The 1,800-acre community has more than 700 acres of freshwater lakes, three miles of beach and signature championship golf, all within one luxurious setting. The lakes provide opportunities for swimming, boating, sailing, water-skiing and fishing. A wide range of new construction and residential choices includes beachfront residences, waterfront residences, grand estate homes, estate homes, luxury villas, full-floor condominiums and coach homes. Residences are priced from $500,000 to more than $5 million. Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club is a project of Margaret Antonier, president and CEO of Miromar Development Corp., a company with a portfolio of residential and commercial properties including the nearby Miromar Outlets and the Miromar Design Center.

The second, in Whitefish, Mont., netted 3 percent above the previous listing price, Ms. DeVine says.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 TM green were off-duty soldiers. They had the same military haircuts. The same toned bodies. But the effect was in no way the same. In fact, they all sported a similar wardrobe item: jorts. Jean shorts. Straightlegged. To the knee. Circa 1995. It seems that men in uniform when theyre out of uniform have a style inspired by Joe Dirt. Talk about lobbing a reality grenade into my illusions. Ultimately, uniforms might put men on equal footing. But as with all good things, they have to come off some time. I recently had lunch with my friend J ennif er, who married a West Point grad and understandably has a thing for men in uniform. Over salads stacked with goat cheese, we tried to decode the appeal of military men. The haircuts? she said, waving her fork. Partly that, I said. The neatness helps. Theyre all physically fit. Good muscles. Lean frames. That helps, too. But theres something more, some quality they all share, even the ones who dont look good in a buzz cut. Is it the uniform? I asked. Jennifer pointed her fork at me. Thats it, she said. Its the uniform. After our lunch date, I spent time on a military base in Texas, a sprawling, dust-colored expanse where old combat tanks crouched on every corner. I was doing research for a longer project, and I had to drive all over post. The streets were wide and open, with speed limits that topped out at 35 miles per hour. It was slow going, but at least I had time to ogle the young men in their green camo. I nearly ran off the road twice.What is it about a man in uniform? SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com ...It seems that men in uniform when theyre out of uniform have a style inspired by Joe Dirt...In all that driving and all that ogling I had time to consider just what was so appealing. Heres what I realized: A uniform is a great equalizer. The sameness eliminates many of the signals women use to judge men. Peter from Fort Myers recently wrote in to say that women are often looking for men who have attained a certain financial status. So off the men go to get their Cool, financially successful clothes on, he said, adding, Trust me when I say most (not all) men have no interest in a $200 pair of jeans, $150 shirt and $400 shoes to match unless it will lead to them hooking up. Peter is right that we use clothes as financial shorthand, and women often prefer men who dress well. When the pool of eligible bachelors all look the same down to their dun-colored boots we cant immediately cull the ones who dont fit our preconceived criteria. Throw in a good haircut and a little PT, and every man becomes a potential mate. But no fantasy is foolproof.

densed image. Now you can read the greatest literary works of all time in mere seconds! So The Great Gatsby is retitled Drink Responsibly, and Shakespeares As You Like It becomes Crossdressing Helps Everyone Find Love. Mr. Wilbur, of course, has his tongue firmly in cheek. And while Better Book Titles (www. betterbooktitles.com) might seem like a shortcut for people who dont want to read, one must be fairly literate to get the jokes, to understand precisely why the new titles are funny. It also helps to have a good grasp of popular culture, because some of the titles reference movies or songs. So Annie Proulxs Brokeback Mountain becomes The Hills Have Guys, and Franz Kafkas The Metamorphosis is renamed A Bugs Life. Some of the new titles play on the titles of other books: Sylvia Plaths Collected Poems is renamed The Bipolar Express. (The actual Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg is now called Dont Stop Believin.) Ernest Hemingways A Moveable Feast is retitled The Years of Magical Drinking. And Aron Ralstons autobiography, Hours: Between a Rock and a Hard Place, the story of how he fell down a crevice while rock climbing and had to amputate his arm in order to free himself, is now called A Farewell to Arm. The site, which celebrates its first anniversary July 1, is very popular. I thought wed have six fans, Mr. Wilbur says. We have about 20,000 on tumblr (a public online journal) alone. I think were up to two million hits, and a million who are unique visitors. Better Book Titles has international appeal. Not only have it and Mr. Wilbur been featured on blogs across the U.S., but also in Spain, Australia and New Zealand. I did a radio (interview) in Ireland, and right around last month, when the Queen was visiting, I did the BBC radio, he says. Mr. Wilbur has been featured in Entertainment Weekly and The New Yorker and on blogs for NPR and Glamour Wherever there are well-read people who have a sense of humor, he says. Glamour magazine hadnt struck him as a site for literary-minded people, but he wound up using a suggested title from its comment board: renaming Oedipus the King How I Met Your Mother. He was impressed by the suggestion. Glamour doesnt strike me as having tons of geeks, he says. Maybe I should reconsider my preconception of Glamour readers.In the beginningHow did he come up with the idea for the site? As all literary endeavors start, I was playing video games with a friend, he says. He had graduated from Bard College a year previously, and felt frustrated he didnt have as much time to read. He devours 30 to 40 books a year now, he estimates, but he knows all these other people who read a book a day. In college, I was used to reading a book a night. The brainstorm for the site occurred while playing Assassins Creed II with a friend. At the end of the game, he explains, you have to strangle the pope nearly to death. And I thought, there would be so much controversy if the name of the game was Strangle the Pope. Being a reader, he instantly made the leap to books: What if book titles were self-explanatory? So youd give a book a nonpretentious name, he says. Dont call it Fahrenheit 451, call it People Burning the Books. I called it Texas Public Schools. Changing books is way different than burning books. Texas is worse, theyre putting in misinformation (into school textbooks and history books.) Edith Whartons Ethan Frome becomes When Life Hands You Lemons Enter a Suicide Pact. Thats very literal. That can only be funny for someone whos a die-hard fan, he says.A rose by any other nameBut visitors to the site can get the gist of many jokes even if they havent read the books, he claims. For example, even if theyve never read the classic story, most people know what Dracula is about. Mr. Wilbur retitled it Vampires Do Not Understand the Housing Market. And four of Tom Clancys testosterone-drenched, flag-waving novels are renamed Japanese People Hate America, Arabs Hate America, The Russians Hate America and Irish People Hate America. He posts an entry every weekday, with Fridays entries suggested by readers. The site covers all kinds of books, from American and Greek classics to childrens books to bestsellers, novels and picture books, biographies and history books. Authors whose books have been re-christened include Dr. Seuss, Tolstoy, Hemingway, Dickens, Haruki Murakami, Flannery OConnor, John Steinbeck, JD Salinger. Part of the genius of the site is that Mr. Wilbur also PhotoShops the covers, giving instantly recognizable images their new title in the same type font. So the retitled books look exactly like the original ones.Comedy and the ClassicsThe 24-year-old comedian lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., now, but hes originally from Cleveland where you cant do anything but read; theres nothing going on there, he says. Clevelands amazing if youve never been to Chicago He knew he was going to do comedy from the start, he says. He just didnt realize hed be making use of his Classics major too. I was envious of a friend who knew how to read Greek, he explains, and I got really into The Odyssey as a sophomore. I decided to study the language (I) studied the plays and read a lot of Socrates. Anything thats on the blog thats Roman or Greek, Ive read all of them. So, for example, hes renamed The Epic of Gilgamesh The Epic for People Who Dont Like Epic-Length Epics. But he doesnt shy away from bestsellers. Stieg Larssons The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is now This is the First Book Ive Read in Six Years. I live in Brooklyn and take the train every day, he says. And thats the only book Id see people reading. I read the first hundred pages and its boring. But everybody else seems to like it. He doesnt shy away from political statements, either. He renamed George W. Bushs Decision Points My Bad and turned Margaret Atwoods dystopian best-selling novel of life under rule of a totalitarian theocracy, The Handmaids Tale, into Sarah Palins America. He renamed Arthur Millers classic witch-hunting play, The Crucible, The Birthers Official Handbook. Some titles comment on things other than plot. David Foster Wallaces novel Infinite Jest, which logs in at more than 1,000 pages, is simply titled Too Long. (Someone later suggested Too Many Footnotes as an equally apt substitute title.) Mr. Wilbur has discovered that whether visitors to the site loved the book or hated it, they love its brandnew title. Last fall, he renamed Miguel de Cervantes Don Quixote Reading Makes You Crazy. And maybe it does, sometimes. In Mr. Wilburs case, it made him crazy like a fox. But its just a natural expression of his role as a comic. Or, as he puts it: Im a comedian telling jokes that are written with the least amount of words, with a punch line. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 BOOKSFrom page 1COURTESY IMAGESFans of Dan Wilburs blog have submitted new names for What to Expect When Youre Expecting and War and Peace, among others.TITLE BY MICHAEL MOLINA I thought wed have six fans.

LOBSTER SPECIALS Summer Lobster Ravioli gripping show at Theatre Conspiracy, then reprised his Edgar Alan Poe at BIG Arts on Sanibel.Better Than the Movie AwardI saw The Rabbit Hole at the Sugden Community Theatre in Naples, and then caught the movie maybe a month later. An examination of the various ways people grieve, it worked much better as a play. The Naples Players did a great job with this.Best Top Hat and Tails Dance AwardTo Frankensteins monster, in Young Frankenstein at the Mann Hall. Under the direction of Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman, the big green man stomped about the stage and did a soft shoe to Puttin on the Ritz. Clever and hilarious.Jerk of the Year AwardTo the man in the front row of the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota, who held his cell phone up at full arms length and took numerous photos flash photos of Chris Botti performing. It was so disturbing and intensely annoying, ruining what wouldve been a very moving moment, that people were complaining about him as they left the hall.Inept Ushers AwardTo the ushers at the Van Wezel who shouldve stopped this man from disturbing an entire hall full of people, but didnt.Gentleman of the Year AwardTo Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Chris Botti, who continued to perform despite continual the flashes going off just feet away.Best Droll Banter AwardTo the cast of Blithe Spirit at the Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples. Noel Cowards dry, witty banter is difficult to pull off, but this cast did it splendidly.Some Enchanted Evening AwardTo the Lincoln Center cast of South Pacific, who performed at the Mann Hall. Kudos for not cutting corners but presenting a show the way it must have been presented during the golden age of musicals with a top-notch cast, full ensemble, full sets and an orchestra of 20-plus musicians. No wonder it swept the 2008 Tony Awards, winning seven Tonys. A knock-out production that presented an enchanted evening, indeed. Best Mash-Up AwardTo the Del McCoury Band, a bluegrass group, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band of New Orleans, who performed together at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples. Not only did they jam together, but they traded musicians back and forth for various numbers.Strangest Mash-Up AwardTo whomever thought offering The Lovin Spoonful and Felix Cavalieres Rascals on the same bill was a good idea. The Lovin Spoonful (minus lead singer John Sebastian) were such a snooze, I almost walked out of the Phil. After an hours performance and an intermission, Felix Cavalieres Rascals hit the stage, and I was instantly engaged. With his B-3 organ and hits such as Good Lovin, Its a Beautiful Morning, Groovin and People Got to Be Free, he had people up and dancing in the aisles. Ace of Bass AwardTo Kate Davis, a young woman whos still in music school, who performed to sold-out shows at the Ringling International Arts Festival in Sarasota. A young person with an old soul, she sings jazz standards while accompanying herself on standup bass. Her rendition of Rufus Wainwrights Leaving for Paris was absolutely riveting.Jazz Hands AwardTo Andrew Dawson, also at Sarasotas Ringling International Arts Festival, who told the entire story of a trip to the moon and back, using, primarily, his hands. I hate mimes, but I loved Mr. Dawsons unique performance.Best Rollercoaster Ride AwardTo the cast of August: Osage County at the Florida Rep, who grabbed hold of their audiences emotions and never let go, taking them from the heights of hilarity to the depths of desperation, as they watched, exhilarated and horrified. A stunningly superlative performance.ARTS COMMENTARY Julys pounding on our door, a sure indication that seasons officially over and summers here. So heres my annual tongue-in-cheek, totally idiosyncratic look back at the 20102011 cultural year, conferring my one-ofa-kind, made-up-on-the-spot awards (and any other hyphenated adjectives I can think of).Must be the Season of the Witch AwardThis was the season of fierce women, no doubt about it. So this award goes to not one, not two, but three women and one man. First of all, to Stephanie Davis, who portrayed Martha in the Laboratory Theater of Floridas production of Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center in Fort Myers. She descended into a drunken despair, flirting with a guest and deliberately antagonizing her husband. Then, to Sara Morsey, who played the matriarch in Florida Repertory Theatres August: Osage County. A stumbling, swaying, cruel woman addicted to pills and alcohol, she ruled the roost with an acerbic tongue, damaging her family for generations to come. Lauren Taylors performance in the titular role of Medea at Theatre Conspiracy was a tour de force, and possibly the best of her career. A powerhouse, she was full of barely restrained fury as she plotted revenge on her cheating husband and murdered her own children. And last, but not least, this award goes to John Epperson, better known as Lypsinka, who performed for one night only at Sarasotas Asolo Repertory Theatre in The Passion of the Crawford. His portrayal of Joan Crawford, with a glint in his eye, was absolutely terrifying and hilarious.Theyve Got Legs, They Know How to Use Them AwardTo the Radio City Rockettes, who literally kicked off the holiday season with their Christmas Spectacular at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. Their precision kicks are amazing to see, as is their trademark line-of-toysoldiers-falling-down-in-a-row-in-slowmo routine. g B t t t nancySTETSON nstetson@floridaweekly.com And the offbeat awards for 2010-2011 go toBest Anti-Bah Humbug AwardTo husband and wife singer/songwriters Vince Gill and Amy Grant, who performed at the Mann Hall (and also at the Van Wezel). Christmas concerts are so often sappy and corny; this was the real deal, with heartfelt performances and creative arrangements and some great harmonizing. I was dumbfounded by how genuine this concert was, and how it put me in a great Christmas mood. Sexy Gangsta AwardBonnie and Clyde were gangsta before rap was even thought of. This gun-totting, two-person crime spree was brought to life onstage at the Asolo, with book by Ivan Menchell, music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics by Don Black. The two leads, Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan, will reprise their roles on Broadway later this year. This is one of those musicals were everything is superlative, and everything acting, singing, dancing, costumes, sets and staging worked together to create something spectacular.Red Hot Mama AwardTo Miche Braden, who portrayed blues singer Bessie Smith in a one-woman show at the Florida Rep. Sassy and sultry, Ms. Braden shook and shimmied and caused a sexy ruckus on stage.Best Use of Space AwardTo the Phil, for starting its All That Jazz series in its Daniels Pavilion. This intimate cabaret space had been crying out for jazz performances for years, and finally, the Phil started offering some this past season.

HAPPY HOURMonday Friday 3-6 Saturday & Sunday 11-6bottle domestic beer and select wines $ 2selected appetizers 1/2 priceFor all its fast-paced action and fishout-of-water comedy, the first Cars was one-dimensional and lacked the heart that were used to from Disney/Pixar. Cars 2 isnt going to overwhelm you with its heart either, but its grand scale, humor, visuals and international espionage elements make for a winning combination thats far superior to its predecessor. Simply put, Cars 2 has more to offer than the 2006 original, and it does everything better. Racecar Lighting McQueen (Owen Wilson) has won four consecutive Piston Cups, but hes never faced a challenge as huge as the World Grand Prix: three races in three cites Tokyo, err, Tow-kyo to use the movies vernacular, London and picturesque Porto Corsa, Italy all using an alternative fuel called Allinol, created by the Richard Branson-type Sir Miles Axlerod (Eddie Izzard). Before he leaves, McQueen pays a visit to his adopted hometown of Radiator Springs, says hello to Sally (Bonnie Hunt) and his other old friends, etc. He also takes a pit crew full of Radiator Springs locals with him on the road, including Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), the hick tow truck with a heart of gold. If this film has a main character its certainly Mater, not McQueen, which makes sense given how beloved Mater was after the first film. Accordingly, the espionage subplot involves Mater carrying intelligence planted on him by an American spy, and two British spies the James Bond-esque Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) and upstart Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer) are forced to work with Mater to learn the identity of an international criminal. To the storys credit, it all ties into the drama surrounding the race and builds to a climactic, satisfying finale. Visually, Cars 2 is absolutely spectacular, with crisp details in all its locations nicely enhanced by the 3D. Whether its an oil rig, the race sites or even good ol Radiator Springs, each setting bursts with color and life, as if director John Lasseter (Toy Story) wants to leave no doubt about which animation studio is (still) the very best. Also, in addition to cars we also meet boats, planes and other forms of travel (a direct-to-video spinoff called Planes is expected in 2013). And even better, theres a car in the image of the Pope, the Queen of England and more. This movie is worth the 3D up-charge. As for the action, its top-notch. Be it a dramatic escape through the air, on the ground or under the sea, or the race sequences involving McQueen and an Italian rival named Francesco (John Turturro), the action is exhilarating and always fun. When this is combined with solid humor and lots of Mater, good things come of it. As for the films heart, theres a sweet moment in which McQueen remembers Doc Hudson (voiced by Paul Newman in the first film), but otherwise Cars 2 is all about action and visual splendor, and it ably delivers both.

You can e-mail him at dan@hudakonhollywood.com and read more of his work at www.hudakonhollywood.com.Buck (Buck Brannaman, Robert Redford, Reata Brannaman) This is a sensitive, thoughtful documentary about Mr. Brannaman, a horse trainer who preaches patience and gentility while conducting clinics throughout the country. Im not much of a horse lover, but its fascinating to see him connect with and break a wild horse with his humanity and years of experience. Rated PG.Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong) Test pilot Hal Jordan (Mr. Reynolds) is recruited to join the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic police force charged with keeping peace in the universe. Mr. Reynolds is charming, but some cheesy visual effects, two boring villains and a story going in too many directions do this movie no favors. Rated PG-13.Submarine (Craig Roberts, Yasmin Paige, Sally Hawkins) British teen Oliver (Mr. Roberts) tries to keep his unhappily married parents (Ms. Hawkins and Noah Taylor) together while dating the feisty Jordana (Ms. Paige), his first girlfriend. The comedy doesnt hit as much as it should, and overall the film is too selfaware for its own good.

I Wore the Ocean in the Shape of a Girl: a Memoir, by Kelle Groom. Free Press. 256 pages. $23. Like a lot of mustread books, I Wore the Ocean is difficult. Its passages of darkness and despair are almost overwhelming. Its descriptions of alcoholism, drug addiction and emptiness are harrowing. But there is no turning away. Ms. Grooms lyrical prose is addictive. Brilliantly lucid, richly suggestive and ruthlessly honest, this memoir is a triumph of art and life. Young Kelle Groom was a person without a center. Up to a certain point in her life, she had a very loose grasp on her own reality. She could not feel rooted, substantial. She found no way to assert herself into the world: She could barely speak. She lived in psychic pain, she faked confidence and, while yet in her early teens, lost herself to alcohol and drugs. She became easy prey to exploitative boyfriends and sexual predators. She was damaged goods, perhaps permanently lost. Somewhere, there was a resilient core that showed itself from time to time. Her unplanned pregnancy, at 19, was a mixed blessing, a gift and a loss. Motherhood gave Ms. Groom a more powerful sense of herself and an anchor in the world. However, believing that she was not fit to raise a child, she allowed Tommy to be adopted by her aunt and uncle. She lived on the fringes of the life she gave. When Tommy died at 14 months from leukemia, Ms. Grooms despair and sense of guilt almost toppled her. Her life as a young adult was one of marginal jobs, bad choices in men and a running battle with alcoholism. The possibility of suicide was never far away. Over time, writing became more and more her salvation. It was her way of coming to terms with herself, of dealing with demons, building a solid identity, finding a productive addiction and gaining perspective and understanding. Ms. Grooms process of self-making through art resulted in three collections of poetry and now this glorious memoir, based largely on journal entries written over many, many years. A major thread in the book is her psychological and spiritual search for Tommy.

With her, we examine the potential for cancer-causing environmental factors in and around Brockton, Mass., where Tommy lived. We witness her react to photographs of Tommy and his adoptive parents that enlarge her emotional understanding. Finally, her aunt and uncle give her some almost 30-year-old home movies, which Ms. Groom processes onto a video compact disc. As she watches, as she sees Tommy look at the camera, the author/mother has the sensation that the boy is seeing recognizing and accepting her. Ms. Grooms descriptive powers are amazing. She presents so well the many places her family lived during her childhood and where she lived on her own: a military base in Spain, El Paso, Cape Canaveral, Orlando, New Smyrna Beach (where she lives today) and several places in Massachusetts. Her fascination with the ocean provides spectacular metaphors for registering her inner feelings. She expresses with great power the periodic oscillation between alcoholic abandon and fragile sobriety, the ebb and flow of her psychic hell and purgatory. The narrative thrust of I Wore the Ocean in the Shape of a Girl is not primarily linear. Rather, the plot points are psychological. Ms. Groom moves us from one point to another by association and memory. Yes, there is a beginning and an end, but in between the reader could be almost anywhere in time and in that slice of time could be a memory or a flash forward to another. She writes: To tell the story, I still had to live it. It was the book itself that finally catalyzed me. I didnt want my son to be invisible or forgotten, his name unspoken. I feel the same about my younger self, the girl who couldnt speak, who died and came back. Find out more about this remarkable author by visiting www.kellegroom. com. Philip K.

Now, with its sleek second location, even more people can enjoy the authentic Cuban cuisine served up by the hospitable Fernandez family and staff. I can recommend the Cuban nachos, an inventive mix of thinly sliced fried plantains, savory chicken, cheese sauce, capers and parsley (plan to share this one); calamari in a well-seasoned tomato sauce with pepper and onions, a refreshing departure from fried calamari; ropa vieja, a classic dish of shredded flank steak in a tomato sauce with peppers and onions; and shrimp and scallops in white wine, garlic and capers. Yuca in creamy garlic sauce, black beans and yellow rice and sweet fried plantains were great sides. For dessert, you cant go wrong with the flan or the tres leches cake. Beer and wine served.Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2010IM 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 experts in this inspired 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.Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2010Marias Restaurant, 27080 Old 41, Bonita Springs; 495-1868For those who know Mexican food is much more than fajitas and tacos, theres Marias, a bastion of authentic south-ofthe-border fare at bargain prices. Located just north of Everglades Wonder Gardens, its been a fixture on Old 41 since the early s. The menu offers a dizzying array of Mexican food. I loved the queso fundido, a cheese dip full of chewy crumbles of chorizo, and the sopecitos, three corn masa pancakes topped with refrieds, onions, hot sauce, cheese and chicken. Lamb tacos were delicious with onions and parsley and tampiquena tender, well-seasoned pork served with three cheese enchiladas and tomatillo sauce were excellent as well. Full bar.Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2010Steamers, 5317 Airport Pulling Road, Naples; 593-3388 Simply prepared seafood served without fuss is the specialty of the house at Steamers. The emphasis is on New England-style classics, such as lobster rolls, clam chowder, whole Maine lobsters and a New England clambake for hearty eaters. I can recommend the seafood chowder, which was full of shellfish and creamy but not overly so. The steamers are cooked just right, leaving them sweet and juicy even without dipping them in the accompanying cups of clam broth and butter. If its fried fish you crave, Steamers does a good job of it, offering all sorts of options, from which you can pick two, along with fries or onion rings (I recommend the rings) and cole slaw. An entre of nicely grilled scallops and shrimp in beurre blanc proves the kitchen can do more than fry. Service was pleasant but a bit harried on a busy evening. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2010Sweet Tomatoes, 10940 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 597-1112 This location of the healthy salad bar chain boasts a contemporary farmers market design, with exposed ceilings and high windows plus appetizing photographs of produce at the peak of ripeness. The food found along the buffet line is equally fresh, with lots of healthy choices including salads, soups, hot entrees, breads and desserts. All the vegetarian items are clearly labeled. Vegetarian Morocco garbanzo and lentil soup was hearty and well seasoned, as was fire-roasted green chile and corn chowder with bacon. There are white and sweet potatoes along with toppings, a handful of pasta offerings and a makeyour-own-sundae station that was especially popular with the many children dining there with their parents. An added bonus is that dinner is less than $10 per adult and $5 (or less) for children.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 There are some chef changes to report this month: Pure Urban Oasis has hired a chef whose culinary prowess measures up to the soulful mystique of the restaurant and bar. Josh Mitchell, who made the gone-but-not-forgotten Chez La Bear at Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa so exceptional and did the same thing at Blue Coyote Supper Club in Fort Myers, now leads the culinary team here. (He also did a short stint at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, a few years ago.) While key elements of the menu remain the same, Chef Mitchell brings his talent for creating intense flavor from a few, high-powered ingredients. I recently sampled several of his creations: tuna tartare atop the restaurants signature rice toppers, a heavenly lobster cappuccino, crisp and savory pot stickers, an arugula/apple/gorgonzola/ walnut salad, lightly seared Cajun sea scallops, perfectly grilled shrimp and lightly breaded chicken accompanied by tart-sweet cranberry gastrique. Everything was terrific. Pure Urban Oasis is in Mercato at 9123 Strada Place. Call 514-7873 for reservations. Stoneys Steakhouse now has Chef Eric Delano at the helm. After almost two years, hes moved down the lane from Roys. He previously worked at Trilogy in Olde Naples, and the Hilton Longboat Key before that.

Call 435-9353 for reservations. Roys Naples has hired John OLeary, most recently from Outlets at the Hilton Orlando. He previously worked as head chef at La Moinere Hotel in the Channel Islands and, prior to that, was at the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago, Renaissance Hotel Chicago and the St. Regis Resort in Fort Lauderdale.

Call 261-1416 for reservations.Summer at M Waterfront GrilleBrian Roland, the innovative chef at M Waterfront Grille, has conjured up an intriguing series of dinners for the summer. On one Monday night a month through October, hes teaming up with chefs from other top Naples restaurants for fivecourse dinners. Each guest chef prepares two courses with the featured ingredient, and then collaborates with Chef Roland to produce dessert. All dinners take place at M Waterfront. Heres whats coming up: July 25: Chef Fabrizio Aielli of Sea Salt. Ingredient: sablefish. Aug. 29: Chef Vincenzo Betulia of Campiellos and Chef Mike Mueller of Caf Lurcat.

Remembering mans best friendIn addition to pleasing patrons with its gourmet Italian fare, wine dinners and elegant Sunday brunches, Angelinas also aims to feed the regions pets this summer.Realizing that donations to nonprofit organizations diminish when winter residents are gone, the restaurant has partnered with Discount Pets & Supplies to help Lee County Domestic Animal Services Community Pet Pantry feed the pets of people struggling to make ends meet. The goal is to keep pets in loving homes rather than having them surrendered to overcrowded shelters. Through Aug. 24, the restaurant will donate a percentage of all sales to support the pantry.
