www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 Heres the scene: It is summer. There is a pool party in progress. There are 20 to 25 people in attendance. One of those people is named Chris Browning. Chris is a drop-dead blonde and a dead-ringer for the actress Morgan Fairchild, and on this day she wears a bikini that requires less material than the average pair of socks. I sit on the side of the pool as Chris strolls by. She stops, bends down and runs a hand through my hair. I do not protest. You know, Bill, she says, leaning low and whispering into my ear in a voice husky with promise, youre getting quite a few gray hairs. I am 24 years old.Now, 38 years later, there is nothing but gray (actually, white is a more accurate description) atop my head. I do not know if the fetching Ms. Browning put some sort of hex on me, but it seems as if the gray began to accumulate at an astounding rate not long after her remark.My hair was about half gray by the time I was 30, three-quarters so by 35 and completely snow white at the tender age of 40. It is a genetic thing. Almost everyone on my mothers side of the family turns gray or white before they reach 50. This hair deal used to really bug me. People will tell you that white or gray hair makes a man look distinguished. Hooey. Distinguished is simply a euphemism for old. Ive been asked if I am eligible for the senior discount since I was in my late 40s. That galled me at first, but I finally decided to give in and take the damn discounts as my way of raging against the bigotry of what I call grayism. Ive probably saved hundreds of dollars over the years by accepting undeserved senior discounts, and I feel not the slightest twinge of conscience for doing so. I learned early that gray hair seems to bring out the worst in people. Let me give you a memorable example. At my 30th high school reunion, a classmate approached me. His eyes went straight to my hair. What in the hell happened to you? he asked. Youve got more white hair than my grandmother. As God is my witness, the witless lout who made this remark had no more than seven or eight hairs on his head. He was almost totally bald. Never not even in my foulest humor would I contemplate approaching someone at a social occasion and making a remark about his baldness. I dont think many people would gig a bald guy, but let me tell you, its always open season on guys with silvery locks. When I was married, a neighbor asked me how I managed to land a wife so many years my junior. (My ex-wifes hair was a deep black.) It wasnt easy, I told him with a wink and an elbow to the ribs. I did not add that my wife was younger than me by all of three months. There always is the option of dying the mop, but its been white for so long now, Ive honestly forgotten exactly what my natural hair color is. I think it was a medium brown or maybe a light brown or maybe it was dark brown. I really dont know. Besides, I do not want to walk around looking like a guy who has smeared shoe polish on his scalp. In one of the more bizarre hair-related incidents, a woman asked if I did indeed dye my hair. Are you kidding? I asked. No, she said. Do you? My response was: Do you think that if I were going to dye my hair, Id make it this color? Why would I dye my hair white? Well, she replied in a tone that carried more than a little indignation, people dye their hair purple, orange all sorts of colors for all sorts of reasons. I said, Thats true, but most of those people are between the ages of 15 and 25 and play in grunge bands with names like Itchy Rectum or some such.I dont understand why youre making such a big deal of this, she said. It was a simple question. And if youre so sensitive about the color of your hair, maybe you should dye it and be done with it.No, no dye jobs for me. But I have considered shaving it all off. Not only would that resolve the color issue, but it would be cool in the summer and maintenance would be a snap. Theres one problem with that plan, however. When I was 23 years old, I was involved in a horrific automobile accident. I wasnt wearing a seatbelt, and I was sent hurtling, head first, through the windshield. They sewed 117 stitches into my noggin. The resulting semblance of a giant zipper running across the top of my head renders voluntary baldness not an option. So, if I dont dye and I dont shave my head, I suppose I am stuck to live out the remainder of my days with this cotton top. Not long ago, I was getting my hair cut and moaning about all the white hair that had accumulated on that black gown thing draped around me. The woman who was doing the cutting stopped and took what she was holding in her right hand and held it in front of my face, not two inches from my eyes. Do you know what these are? she asked. Scissors? No, theyre thinning shears. Your hair is so thick I have to thin it to make it manageable. Do you have any idea how many men your age need thinning shears? I shrugged. Well, the answer is not many. Not many at all. Youve got thicker hair than most of my clients who are in their 30s. So please, do me a favor, and quit all of this complaining about your white hair. Consider that done, maam. Shades of gray billCORNWELL bcornwell@floridaweekly.comCOMMENTARY

Diabolical plots to taint items on grocery store shelves? If you are Buddy Dyer, the mayor of Orlando, you might be thinking of a group feeding the homeless and hungry in one of your city parks. That is what Mayor Dyer is widely quoted as calling the activists with the Orlando chapter of Food Not Bombs food terrorists. In the past few weeks, no less than 21 people have been arrested in Orlando, the home of Disney World, for handing out free food in a park. Food Not Bombs is an international, grass-roots organization that fights hunger. As the name implies, it is against war. Its website home page reads: Food Not Bombs shares free vegan and vegetarian meals with the hungry in over 1,000 cities around the world to protest war, poverty and the destruction of the environment. With over a billion people going hungry each day how can we spend another dollar on war? The Orlando chapter sets up a meal distribution table every Monday morning and Wednesday evening in the citys Lake Eola Park. Lately, the Orlando police have been arresting those who serve food there, like Benjamin Markeson. He was perplexed, telling me: We think that its terrorism to arrest people for trying to share food with poor and hungry people in the community to meet a community need. And all we do is we come to the park and we share food with poor and hungry people. I dont know how that qualifies as terrorism. Attorney Shayan Elahi doesnt know, either. He is representing Orlando Food Not Bombs in court. He has filed for an injunction against the city in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, which is presided over by Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. Judge Perry is in the news lately as the no-nonsense judge in the Casey Anthony murder trial, which is happening now in Orlando. While the judges courtroom receives blanket coverage on cable networks, Mr. Elahi hopes Judge Perry will have time to personally rule on his filing. At issue is a city law, the Large Group Feeding ordinance, that requires groups to obtain a permit to serve food, even for free, to groups of 25 or more. Such permits are granted to any group only twice per year. Orlando Food Not Bombs has already used both of its allowed permits this year. The Florida Civil Rights Association has called on Mayor Dyer to apologize for his designation of the Food Not Bombs group as terrorists. The criminal act should not be feeding more than 25 people, but that more than 25 people need food. Attorney Elahi links the crackdown to the planned gentrification of downtown Orlando: The mayor started the development board for downtown Orlando, and his whole goal was basically to push everybody who ... didnt fit their idea of who should be in downtown. And were trying to point out to the mayor that times have changed, that now everybody is hurting, and a lot more people who come to Food Not Bombs food sharing are working poor. The core message of Food Not Bombs is embodied in a resolution passed just last week by the U.S. Conference of Mayors calling on Washington to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as soon as strategically possible, redirecting funding to meet vital human needs here at home. Central Florida has been hit very hard by the recession and is among the top locations for foreclosures and bankruptcies. The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization is warning that global food prices are expected to remain high for the rest of the year and beyond. Earlier this year, food prices hit levels seen during the 200708 food crisis that sparked unrest in poor nations worldwide. Mass protests and a general strike in Greece against planned austerity measures are shutting down Athens. One of the most famous songs at Disney World, not far from Lake Eola Park, is called Its a Small World. Its refrain: Theres so much that we share/that its time were aware/its a small world after all. Lets turn fantasy into reality. Sharing food should not be a crime. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 800 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier, recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.Food terrorism in the Magic KingdomSometime between 2008 and now, President Barack Obama lost the future. He rose to high office on a gust of hope and change, but despite the future-oriented marketing has proved himself devoted to old pieties and existing governmental structures. At this rate, hell be remembered as the last president of the 20th century. His economic policy has been a reprise of the best economic thinking circa 1932. Its been all Keynesian stimulus, and the soggy results are all around us. With the economy still weak and unemployment still high, hes checkmated by his own stale orthodoxy. Hes unable to advance any significant proposals that wouldnt simply be more of the same and politically unacceptable in this era of anxiety over the debt. In his misplaced faith in the shovel-ready project, he must have had visions of the Hoover Dam and the interstate highway system those jewels of 20th-century American infrastructure, built relatively rapidly before the regulatory state had tied itself in knots rising up from his stimulus. Instead, the stimulus has built little or nothing anyone will remember. Obamas health-care program is radical in its sweep, but distinctly mid-20th century in its orientation. An enormous part of it simply depends on the expansion of Medicaid, the pride of 1965. In the first blush of the Great Society, Medicaid might have seemed a glorious innovation. Now, its results are so poor that some studies show that the health o utcomes f or people on Medicaid arent any better than those without any insurance at all.As the baby boomers retire, the 20th-century entitlement state is under increasing strain. Paul Ryan proposes transforming Medicare to harness the power of the market and rein in the programs costs over time. Obama proposes a bureaucratic board to dictate its future in command-andcontrol fashion out of World War II. It is coming undone under the solvents of demographics (an aging population), fiscal realities (unsustainable levels of debt) and market changes (globalization and new technologies favoring the quick and nimble). Its not the 1950s anymore. Yet government lumbers on. How many rounds of restructuring and downsizing has corporate America gone through over the decades? For the private sector, all is flux. For the public sector, the more things change, the more they stay the same.Obama has gone from agent of change to the best friend of government as we know it. Hes gone from capturing the restlessness and discontent of the American public to relying on the sheer power of inertia to resist Republican plans to tackle the debt and update the entitlement state. Hes the great obstacle to adjusting to new realities.All around Obama the cracks in the edifice are showing. The AARP is signaling openness to Social Security cuts. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the son of liberal lion Mario Cuomo, is pursuing reformist measures unimaginable a few years ago. Yet Obama apparently still needs a weatherman to tell him which way the wind is blowing. If Bill Clinton built the bridge to the 21st century, Barack Obama is adamantly refusing to cross it, rendered immobile by his ideology and self-interest. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The last president of the 20th century? amyGOODMAN Special to Florida Weekly richLOWRY Special to Florida Weekly

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 to him for a live shot. Somehow the audi-dextrous reporter remains reverent of his astronaut guest. Somehow he pays attention when his producer in a satellite truck interrupts his ear-stream. Somehow he speaks. He speaks to the boys and girls who grew up kneeling around a television as man first walked on the moon, seemingly bouncing from flag to screen. And he speaks to the boys and girls who may be looking at their first space shuttle, their eyes lit with possibility. Mr. Zarrella speaks to the senses, telling his viewers what theyre missing, The earth starts to rumble. You feel a rumbling, rolling across the Earth to you. Then he shows the nation a space shuttle launch, by not seeing it. His back to the shuttle, his face to the camera, on-site Zarrella watches the launch on TV. He turns his head and looks over his shoulder right at liftoff. He may take three or four more glances, quick glances, as the shuttle spears towards space. But even when his producer cuts in his earpiece, Were staying on the shuttle, Mr. Zarrella does not turn. Even when hes minimized to a small box on the bottom corner of the screen, he looks straight ahead. Being there to feel the rumble might make it easy for Mr. Zarrella to perceive the launch as happening just for him, but the journalist has the selfrestraint to keep his face forward, so everyone, in every living room, might feel the shuttle launches just for them. You try to stay within the moment, but you try to remain above it, remain above the event. You cant be drawn into it to the extent you become part of it, to the extent you interject yourself into the event, says Mr. Zarrella, who interjects his broadcast with tidbits of engineers and scientists and astronauts, those who play flutes in space, those who grew up fixing Jaguars, those who lithograph moonscapes. Youre covering an event, a big event, he says. You have to stay out of it as best you can, thats how you see it. Mr. Zarrella says he has kept himself out of 75, maybe 76 launches, reporting on the space shuttle program since 1984. Space is my beat, says the 57-year-old, who has covered the same subject, working for the same network, been married to the same woman, for nearly 30 years. When NASA launches Atlantis the final flight of the space shuttle era scheduled for July 8 at 11:26 a.m. from Cape Canaveral, CNN Miami correspondent John Zarrella will report live from his directors chair, astronaut Cady Coleman by his side. The two will likely discuss the space shuttle saga starting with its Columbia inception in April 1981, followed by the fleet of Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavor: Was the space shuttle program successful? Thirty years of orbits, space station assembly, setting satellites in motion, expanding Hubble telescope vision, expediting planetary exploration: Were such ambitions, such feats, worth it? Mr. Zarrella says yes, the space shuttle program was a tremendous success. He says we do not yet know how big the space station will be. We cannot yet measure the impact space discoveries will have on medicine. He sees the space shuttle as an international venture, one the Cold War world would not have believed Americans and Russians living and working together in space. Mr. Zarrella sees the space shuttle as an acceleration of technology never to be seen again in his lifetime. Equal in legacy, he sees a universal kinship. On July 8, as the Atlantis crew of four counts down their 12-day mission, his CNN commentary must move to whats next for NASA. Will we go back to the moon, to Mars, to an asteroid where are we going? More than anything, Mr. Zarrella worries that as the space shuttle goes away, so goes a childs interest. Its as if he sees the shuttle as the anthropomorphic muscle of might, and in its absence, the next generation of astrophysicists and astronauts might not share the dream. For 30 years, all young people have been inspired by the space program. Seeing a shuttle lift off is an iconic event, Mr. Zarrella says. Now a lot of young people may not go into engineering, or any fields related to space exploration, if they dont see a reason to, if they dont see NASA down the road. He sits in the swivel chair of his Plantation office, CNN mug on his desk. Uncrosses his ankle from his knee, puts his foot on the floor, I hope Im wrong. Astronaut Coleman touches on this same sentiment of educational stirring, speaking to Mr. Zarrella in a CNN clip, One of the things we can do up there is actually just be a presence that some little girl, some little boy looks up and thinks, you know, she looks like a real person, maybe I could do that job. This Atlantis commentating pair has a rare relationship. Reporter Zarrella was given unprecedented access to an astronaut, following Catherine Cady Coleman for a year, as the wife and mother prepared to spend 5 months in space. He interviewed her during eye exams and watched her learn Russian while jogging. Launching and landing in Kazakhstan on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft, Ms. Coleman needed to learn the language. And she needed her exercise. So she jogged with her instructor, squeezing in her running and her lessons. Mr. Zarrella was there to film her training and to film more personal moments, like the glimpse of her holding a stuffed animal, a small tiger the flight engineer took on her Expedition mission to hug by her chest and carry her back to her boy. Mr. Zarrella compiled these moments in his yearlong series, Counting down Cady. Then Cady called him from space. The connection was perfect. Mr. Zarrella was on his way to dinner when he picked up his cell phone. He turned to his companions, Hold on a sec, Ive got to take this. Back to his phone call from the International Space Station, Cady, what took you so long? Did you forget about me already? Back on the ground, no longer 220 miles up, Mr. Zarrella asks Ms. Coleman, Was it difficult, a difficult place for you to leave? To me it was like that book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, where the kids, you know, go through the wardrobe and they enter this magical world, and when they come back, you know, to where they really sort of live, nobody understands that that world is out there, says the astronaut in a CNN clip. But when theyre in that world, that world is very real, and thats a little bit what the space station was like for me. These exchanges delight Ms. Coleman. She does not tire of Mr. Zarrellas questions, because his curiosity prompts the emotions she means to share, but sometimes does not think to say. I love working with John because he is just as interested in getting the NASA story out as I am, writes the astronaut in an e-mail from Russia. He asks things that help me explain what we are doing and why it is important in a way that everybody understands. It is clear that he cares about space exploration, and he is also funny, which I love. Ms. Coleman may be the closest to space Mr. Zarrella will ever be. But for millions, for his audience, Mr. Zarrella becomes the shuttle, their teleport to that infinitely intriguing realm. Im not the story, Mr. Zarrella says. These people are the story. The things I cover are the story, and I try to convey it in the best possible way I can. As the space shuttle program ends, memories fly by this storyteller. He does not remember the first launch he saw (NASAs 10th space shuttle mission, the fourth flight of Challenger in February 1984), because of the one that blacked out everything else. Mr. Zarrellas memories start with the Challenger launch on Jan. 28, 1986. Correspondent Zarrella and company drove up from Miami to Cape Canaveral a couple of days early, to interview Girl Scout troops and the first teacher to fly to space, Christa McAuliffe, who wrote of the Apollo moon landing in her astronaut application, I watched the Space Age being born and I would like to participate. A freeze was moving into Florida that January night before the launch, so Mr. Zarrella spent the night in an orange grove, shooting weather footage. In the early morning hours, Mr. Zarrella and the boys went back to the CNN trailer and dozed off on the floor, their winter coats as their pillows, waiting for the launch. They werent worried about their lack of sleep, come on, they were covering a shuttle launch, this was routine, this was no big deal. Finally, countdown to the 11:40 a.m. launch. Mr. Zarrella took to his traditional spot by the lagoon, near the big clock. Here, he pauses in his recollection. His hand on his knee, he shifts his jaw, We were watching, then all of a sudden we see these enormous clouds. Hands up, arms crossed, he leans back, I will never forget, to me it looked more like fireworks, like sparks coming out, giant sparks. We were all scratching our heads, thinking, This isnt right, somethings wrong. Everybody was waiting for the vehicle to come out from behind the cloud stack. Mr. Zarrella closes his eyes, It never does. He started running up the mound to the NASA newsroom, saw his photographer Steve Sonnenblick, and asked in a panic, What happened? Mr. Sonnenblick took his eye away from his lens, The (expletive) thing blew up. Oh my God. Mr. Zarrella still covers his eyes, as he says the same words he said 25 years ago. Challenger exploded 73 seconds into its flight, on a day when CNN had no satellite trucks. Mr. Zarrella had to drive to Disney World to feed his tapes to the network, but his first reports, he made by phone. I dont recall what I said. And five minutes after I said it, I probably couldnt have told you. CNN Senior Producer Rich Phillips says its not necessarily what a reporter says or doesnt say, its not a matter of wit or poetry, its a matter of capturing the feeling, simply by saying whats going on out there. Mr. Phillips has seen Mr. Zarrella do this, particularly in May 1992, during Endeavors first launch. Endeavor was authorized by Congress as the replacement for Challenger, and was the first orbiter named by a national competition among young school students. There was this sense, this aura around NASA, that in a lot of ways, they were looking to Endeavor to mak e them w hole again, says Mr. Phillips, the producer in the CNN satellite truck for that launch. Mr. Phillips says he saw Mr. Zarrella channel all the nervous anticipation, all the way through the sighs of relief. Endeavors liftoff and Mr. Zarrellas coverage, flawless. When you have a sense of adventure, a passion to do something, it comes to you quickly, Mr. Phillips says. John takes today and he builds on yesterday. He boils things down in a way people understand it. Its not mired down, its English. Mr. Phillips has been based in Miami, covering space with Mr. Zarrella, since 1990. He says Mr. Zarrella can put aside the science, bringing the astronaut and the audience to the place where they are the same, because Mr. Zarrella is an Everyman reporter. He looks like an Everyman kind of guy. Mr. Zarrella has a Home Depot smile and football-coach hair. He winks when he says goodbye. Mr. Phillips laughs, Heres an anecdote for you Producer Phillips and reporter Zarrella were in Key Largo, interviewing a NASA team that was working on rendezvous technology for a possible trip to an asteroid. NASA was testing equipment underwater, simulating space. The team was looking for a tool that could open and close and grasp objects like a hand. They found inspiration at the general store, and when Mr. Zarrella introduced it to the public, he said it the way it was a glorified pooper-scooper. What better way to explain the thing so the public can understand, says Mr. Phillips, half snicker. John gets that. The only way to keep people interested, is to make it fun at the same time. That brings everybody down to the same level. Lisa Malone says NASA really does make it look easy, but to conduct a mission, to launch it, to land it, it is rocket science. Ms. Malone, a NASA director of public affairs, provides extensive access to the media, because the more educated the media, the better the story. TAKEOFFFrom page 1RACHEL HICKEY / FLORIDA WEEKLYCNN correspondent John Zarrella has reported on the space shuttle program since 1984.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 NEWS A9 Zarrella has earned a lot of respect from center directors and program managers, says Ms. Malone, who credits his conversational style and expert knowledge for the way he connects to the public. CNN broadcasts a lot of live coverage, people have come to know him as their space reporter. Producer Phillips says Mr. Zarrella is just as genuine off-camera. Again 1992, this time Hurricane Andrew. Mr. Phillips had never experienced a hurricane, same as much of the CNN team. They were young, they had not covered a news story of Andrews magnitude, they did not have a strong sense of what was really going on out there, then somebody walked in front of a window. Mr. Zarrella sprung out of his chair. A severe-weather reporter, he had covered nearly every hurricane to make landfall in the U.S. since 1979. He steered everyone away from the glass. There was a lot of wisdom there. I remember that lesson. Thats when it hit me, this was a serious thing, Mr. Phillips says. He had a deep appreciation of what was going on out there. None of us had experienced a storm like this before, but he had. His reaction always stayed with me. Come the start of every hurricane season, Mr. Zarrella is dusting off his rubber boots, says his wife, Robin. Not that her husband would wish another storm on anyone but if a hurricane hits, hes sure as hell there. Ms. Zarrella says her husbands not obsessed with storms or space, although their two sons were wearing NASA baby-footed onesies the first week they were born. They were big babies, Ms. Zarrella says. They only got to wear their NASA onesies for a week. Their oldest son wanted to be astronaut until he saw the movie Apollo 13. They almost didnt come back, said the boy-turned-graduate student, now studying nuclear chemistry at Texas A&M. He may build a rocket, but he wont be on one. Fantasy baseball. John is obsessed with fantasy baseball, blurts Ms. Zarrella. Space is not his obsession but his privilege. And he hangs mementos of this privilege on his office walls, like NASA scientists hang degrees framed photographs signed by NASA astronauts Edgar Mitchell, Bob Cabana, Walt Cunningham, Dick Covey and Judith Resnik, who died on Challenger. What was once sand, now crystalized all crater-like by the ignition of a solid rocket booster, rests on his bookshelf, encapsulated in glass. He has a faded poster propped up, printed with Ted Turners tag line, I was cable before cable was cool. Reporters penned their names and the launches they covered on the poster Mr. Zarrellas list starts in the top left corner, farther down the margin, Zarrella continued And on a coat hanger in the corner, planets crafted out of paper bags round a yellow, paper-plated sun, the art of Mr. Zarrellas daughter. He placed the hanger just under the light switch, so he sees her solar system every time he comes in or out of his office. When he thinks of his girls, he cant help but think of John Glenn. February 1962, Mr. Glenn becomes the first American to orbit Earth. October 1998, Mr. Glenn becomes the oldest man to fly in space. If the 77-year-old had not flown that day, if Discovery had been delayed, Mr. Zarrella would not have been there for Mr. Glenns return to space. As soon as the shuttle cleared the sky, Mr. Zarrella hopped on a plane to Russia, en route to adopting 17-month-old twin girls. MaryLynn Ryan, CNN Southeast bureau chief, has watched the girls grow into teenagers through the family Christmas cards Mr. Zarrella sends. She sees Mr. Zarrella as a devoted dad and inquisitive reporter, a man who likes a good cigar, but is still a boy when it comes to space. Mr. Zarrella worked with Ms. Ryan on the gulf oil spill, leading to CNNs 2011 Peabody Award. He worked with her on Hurricane Katrina, filming from a rooftop in New Orleans, the satellite cable running down the length of the hotel, hooked up to a car battery. In a phone interview from her office in Atlanta, where she was listening to the live feed of the Casey Anthony trial, Ms. Ryan recalled something Mr. Zarrella said. She wrote it down so she wouldnt forget. Where did she put it? Oh, he said, One good thing about the shuttle program, its retiring before I do. If the media has failed in its coverage of the space shuttle, Mr. Zarrella says its failed to tell the stories of the thousands and thousands of people behind the scenes, the ones who build the thing, without whom it wouldnt fly. He has spent the past year talking to such professionals, piecing together a documentary, Beyond Atlantis: The Next Frontier, airing on CNN on July 8. In the film, he introduces workers out West, workers who have never done anything in their career but build solid rocket boosters. Now that its over, Mr. Zarrella follows the last set of boosters off the assembly line. He goes inside Discovery with astronaut Bob Cabana, sits in the cockpit, sits in the commanders seat. Each shuttle has 400 miles of wires from one end to the other. Sitting inside Discovery, the first shuttle to be retired, Mr. Zarrella sees bundle after bundle, rack after rack, tray after tray of wires, and gleans a whole new respect for any time hes heard the word delay. He visits Lorna Onizuka, widow of Ellison Onizuka, Challenger mission specialist. Ms. Onizuka rarely grants interviews, but she welcomes Mr. Zarrella into her home, shows him an altar shes dedicated to her late husband a Coors Light can and a baseball on the altar, depictive of the man who she still believes looks down on them, the crews. CNN Supervising Producer Kim Segal understands why Ms. Onizuka would invite Mr. Zarrella to such an intimate space, because as Mrs. Segal says, To meet John is to like John. Mr. Zarrella hired Mrs. Segal to be his producer 22 years ago. The two have endured Carl Hiaasen-like stories, romps involving alligator trackers and python charmers and Michael Jacksons chimpanzee Bubbles. If he wasnt a journalist, hed be an astronaut, Mrs. Segal says. Thats how passionate he is about space. Her words dually show how passionate he is about journalism. Many nights, the journalist would sit outside with his telescope, before his girls knocked it over. He used to yell to his kids, Come here, look at this. He says his kids got tired of coming out and looking. Says he would sit there by himself and wonder, Whats out there? Now he thinks of whats next millionaires building spaceships to charter civilians to space, where their bodies will go weightless for four minutes, for an estimated price of $200,000. He thinks of a teacher in space, a senator in space, how he wishes a journalist would have had the chance. Maybe someone will pick up on his hint if he gets called out on it, hed have to man up. The journalist may keep his face straight for a launch but space oh boy, would he fly. NASA PHOTOS / GRAPHIC BY AMY LOMBARDOThis tribute to space shuttle Atlantis hangs in Firing Room 4 of the Launch Control Center at NASAs Kennedy Space Center. It features Atlantis soaring above Earth and shows mission patches for each of Atlantis flights. Atlantis accomplishments include seven missions to the Russian space station Mir and several assembly, construction and resupply missions to the International Space Station. Atlantis also flew the last Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission. The planet Venus represents the Magellan probe, and Jupiter represents the Galileo probe. Inset photos illustrate various aspects of shuttle processing in addition to significant achievements, such as the glass cockpit and the first shuttle docking with Mir. The inset photo at upper left shows a rainbow over Atlantis on Launch Pad 39A and shuttle Endeavour on Launch Pad 39B. The stars in the background represent the many people who have worked with Atlantis and their contributions to the vehicles success.

John Zarrella talks with NASA Administrator Charles Bolden about the Space Shuttle program and NASAs future, and takes viewers for a tour inside the Space Shuttle Discovery, exclusively, with former Commander Robert Cabana. Beyond Atlantis: The Next Frontier examines the commercialization of space, through the eyes of visionaries like Richard Branson of Virgin Galactic, and Elon Musk of SpaceX, as they strive to make space travel more affordable, and dare to do what only governments could afford to do previously. Mr. Zarrella speaks exclusively with the wife of one the Space Shuttle Challenger astronauts, and he travels to Promontory, Utah, to visit the site where the space shuttle boosters were built, talks to people who have spent most of their adult life working on the Shuttle program, and takes viewers on the train ride carrying the last set of boosters to Kennedy Space Center for the nal Space Shuttle mission. in the know

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn asked the Social Security Administration to investigate whether Mr. Thornton is abusing the system (and Ms. Dias, too, since she can nurse for a living). Mr. Thornton subsequently told The Washington Times that if his SSI checks were discontinued, he would kill himself. Top GunTodd Whitehurst may be the father of from 42 to 60 children, based on statistical probability that recognizes his virtuosity as a sperm donor, according to a June New York Post profile (though one website, Donor Sibling Registry, claims to have documented 129 children sired by an unnamed seed demon, who is one of 92 highly productive men with 10 or more). Mr. Whitehurst, who like the others, was selected based on his sperms profile and speed, donated weekly for about three years in the late 1980s (for $50 a session), and has been contacted so far by nine teenagers who sent him their photos after piecing together evidence identifying him (despite sperm banks promises of confidentiality). Mr. Whitehurst, acknowledging the resemblances to his offspring, seems to find the relationships fulfilling, however limited they are. Said he, I love Fathers Day. The continuing crisis Perhaps a kindergartner needs to have his dad wait with him and wave bye-bye as he steps onto the school bus in the morning, but Rain Price is a 10th-grader (in American Fork, Utah), and his dad, Dale Price, nevertheless waves from the bus stop every morning, right in front of Rains friends. Furthermore, according to a June report by KSL-TV in Salt Lake City, Dale makes it a point to be wearing a different, crazy costume every morning (170 in all for the school year, including, once, a wedding dress). Alleged gang members Barbara Lee, 45, and Marco Ibanez, 19, were arrested in Hallandale Beach, in April and charged in the assault and stabbing of four deaf people. Ms. Lee was at the Oceans Eleven Lounge one evening when she saw several people in a group make hand signs that she interpreted as disrespecting her own gangs signs, and, according to police, left to recruit Mr. Ibanez to come administer retribution. Unknown to Ms. Lee or Mr. Ibanez, the group were deaf people using sign language and had no idea they were making gang signs. Bright ideasNew York scent artist Christopher Brosius had made his name with fragrances recalling childhood (such as Clean Baby Butt, Green Bean and Baseball Glove), but felt it was time, according to an April report in New York magazine, to approach the next frontier to make a perfume so exclusive that no one could smell it. By Mr. Brosius reasoning, the scents chemicals would provoke whatever reactions scents provoke in those exposed to it, but the actual scent would be undetectable to the nose; hence, no one would know why they were reacting as they were. By trial and error, he combined jasmine, sandalwood and natural amber, and scaled them down in power, yielding what he calls Where We Are There Is No Here. Said Mr. Brosius, The question, What perfume are you wearing? should never arise. Oops! A 93-year-old woman was rescued by medics in Philadelphia in April after spending several days stuck in her own toilet. (According to KYW-TV, she had to be carried out with a portion of the toilet still stuck tightly to her body.) In Tooting, England, in May, an unnamed senior was rescued by firefighters after he got his testicles caught in a shower seat in which he was sitting while bathing. Parkridge Medical Center in Chattanooga, Tenn., apologized and paid the bill in June for exhuming the body of the recently deceased Kenneth Manis. The man who had shared Mr. Manis hospital room during his final days had reported that his dentures were missing, and the hospital determined that they had been mistakenly buried with Mr. Manis.

Thats the prevailing refrain in health care today. An update on the old phrase, No margin, no mission, it means that in order to prosper financially, health-care providers must assure exc ellent patient outcomes. Michele Thoman, our chief nursing officer, reminded me of that updated refrain recently when she returned from the prestigious, three-week J&J/Wharton Fellows Program in Management for Nurse Executives. The importance of improved patient outcomes was also very much on the minds of the directors, chief medical officers and CEOs at the Florida Hospital Association quality meeting I attended recently. All agreed that we must demonstrate improved o utcomes in order to remain financially viable. Moreover, with decreasing reimbursement from both commercial and government payers (Medicaid payments will decline by $10.6 million in the next year), we face the added burden of profit margin squeeze. The goal of the FHA Quality Committee is to improve the state of our states health by benchmarking, and sharing best health practices with every person in Florida. The National Healthcare Quality Report shows improvement in the Sunshine State, with hospital care measures rising from low average for the baseline year to a solid strong for the most recent year. As a state, Florida is better than average in terms of adult admissions for appendicitis, heart attack death, congestive heart failure deaths, pneumonia, obstetrical trauma, post-op abdominal wound breakdowns and overall mortality. Our state must improve in such facets as communication with physicians and nurses, stopping antibiotics after surgery within 24 hours, post-operative infections, selected infections due to medical care and starting antibiotics within six hours of coming to the hospital with an infection. Medicare will start a Value-Based Purchasing program in fiscal year 2013, based on hospital performance. Basically, this program will withhold payments to hospitals that do not deliver high-quality care. Since Medicare payments account for more than 60 percent of our total revenue and Medicaid reimbursement has been lowered by more than 12 percent, performing well on these designated metrics becomes mission critical for NCH. Specifically, these metrics are related to acute heart attacks, heart failure, pneumonia, health-care associated infections, surgical prophylaxis and patient satisfaction (which alone accounts for 30 percent of the total value). Our goal is to rank among the approximately one-third of hospitals receiving full payments and to not fall among the third who will be penalized 1 percent with decreased payments. NCH possesses all the elements for continued success: great people delivering wonderful care, a strong information technology backbone and an extraordinary community interested in and supportive of our institution. We intend to be completely transparent as we face this new challenge. I have always believed that if you do the right thing often enough, you get the right result.

If he starts to mess, tell him no, take him outside, and give him a command for going (go now or even lets hurry). Then praise him for doing right, so he starts to understand what you want. Put him in a crate whenever hes not on leash with you. Its not unfair during training to leave him in a crate for four or five hours at a stretch assuming, of course, that hes getting his regular daily exercise. Take him outside first thing in the morning, as soon as you get home from work and just before you go to bed (when you put him in his crate for the night). Always remember to give your go command, and praise him when he does as you wish. People never seem shy about punishing their dogs, but too often forget to praise them they take it for granted the dog should do the right thing. Never, ever forget the praise.

BRIAN PRESLEY LIKENS THE SELECTION OF someone to manage your finances and your investments to that of selecting a partner for marriage. Mr. Presley, senior partner at Presley Beane Financial Services in Punta Gorda, makes that remark with a chuckle, but he also acknowledges there is more than a grain of truth in it as well. Like a marriage, he says, you would like your relationship with your financial adviser to be longstanding and fulfilling for both parties. And, of course, there must be trust. And, as with a marriage, when the relationship between investor and manager sours or even worse becomes criminal the ramifications and personal trauma can be devastating and last lifelong. One needs to look no further than the Bernard Madoff swindle to see how horrific things can get. In Mr. Madoffs Ponzi scheme, billions of dollars vanished. Retirements were lost, college educations denied, worthy charities were decimated and, in some cases, people who thought their financial futures were secure were literally pitched onto the streets, penniless and adrift in a sea of poverty. Fortunately, the Madoffs (in the financial services industry) are few and far between, says Brian Simon of the Alliance Financial Group in Fort Myers. Mr. Simons dead-on assessment is the good news in this regard. The bad news, however, is that Florida (especially South Florida) seems to attract an inordinate number of the few shady characters who prey on ill-informed investors. According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), many would-be Madoffs are drawn to our area because of a concentration of wealth that is coupled with an older population.

B6 UF report: Consumer confidence falls againConsumer confidence among Floridians declined for the fourth time in five months falling to 66 in June as the U.S. economy continues to sputter, according to a new University of Florida survey. Floridians appear to be growing concerned about the short-run health of the U.S. economy, says Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. As the deadline to adjust the debt ceiling approaches, some Floridians, particularly seniors, may be anticipating cuts to Social Security and Medicare which will likely have to be part of any long-term deficit reduction solution. Others may have concerns about raising the debt ceiling. Four of the five index components the survey measures decreased. The largest decline was in perceptions of U.S. economic conditions over the next year, which fell seven points to 61. Perceptions of personal financial situation expected a year from now fell one point to 74. Perceptions of U.S. economic conditions over the next five years fell one point to 72, and confidence in purchasing big-ticket items such as cars and appliances dropped four points to 70. The only component to increase was perceptions of personal financial situation now compared to a year ago, which rose one point, to 53. The declines among senior citizens surveyed were significant. Confidence among those aged 60 and over fell by an average of 7.25 points in four index components. Confidence in purchasing bigticket items fell 11 points to 68, perceptions of U.S. economic conditions over the next year fell eight points to 55, perceptions of personal financial situation SEE CONFIDENCE, B7 BY MILENKO MARTINOVICHSpecial to Florida Weekly

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 MONEY & INVESTINGDiversification versus investment bettingMost people want to make a lot of money in their investing. For the average person, how he handled his investing is absolutely critical to his ability to retire and stay retired. The very wealthy often have other sources of income (their own businesses) or so much money that a poor return or a bundle invested at zero rates does not diminish their lifestyle. The average investor will visit with an investment adviser who, most often, will generate the following counsel: Diversify your portfolio. Not only is this meaningful counsel, its legally mandatory. It is part and parcel of the definition of prudent investing that is to say, an excessively large concentration of an asset in a portfolio can be grounds for suit against an adviser. Now, three questions that logically follow are: What does it really mean to be diversified? Are you diversified? And will diversification allow you to achieve your goals? DiversificationAs executed by many advisers, it means a portfolio of various mutual funds of stocks and bonds; it means, at the investment altar (and after the advisers fee is paid), the following words ar e utter ed: I now pronounce you diversified Now go and live your retirement life Words and papers that create emotional comfort and a roadmap. Many investors who received such pronouncement prior to 2007, realized in 2007 and 2008 that they were not diversified in ways that protected them from experiencing huge downsides in their portfolio which is what they wanted in the first place and what they thought they were getting. The problem is, a fully diversified portfolio of equities does not diversify away market risks and market risk is the key element of return for any equity portfolio. If the market rises, their portfolio rises and if it falls, their portfolio falls, generally speaking if they are buy and hold investors. Bonds bring better diversification but bonds have a positive, albeit not perfect, correlation to stocks. (Long-term correlation is positive of .3.) So what can diversification into 50 stocks versus five let you achieve? You can diversify away business risks the risk of a product failure, patent expiration, a labor strike or company fraud, etc. or industry specific risk municipal, country or government credit risk; etc. but not market risk. Resolving the diversification problem Either create a truly diversified portfolio (i.e. hold alternative assets that are not correlated to equities or bonds), expand the long only bond and stock portfolios to include short positions designed to benefit when or if those assets decline (as hedge funds do) or simply move more heavily into fixed-income instruments/bonds that provide the income you need to live and that reduce your equity market risk exposure. The Jan. 12, 2011, Money and Investing column (titled Investment diversification) might be a worthy re-read as it covers what true diversification means and covers several maligned asset classes (i.e. those perceived as being highly risky, yet their inclusion in a portfolio has historically lowered risk and increased return). So, the really good news is that true, not feigned, diversification might provide protection for a portfolio and it might also be a path to meaningful investment outperformance and a healthy retirement. (Why else do you think the rich put money into hedge funds? For market performance? I think not.) As to creating great wealth, I believe people get wealthy by taking meaningful and concentrated risks. These risks can very much be in their investing, but more often, they are in their careers or business ownership. And that is NOT a recommendation to do so; just an observation. So how do multi-millionaires make their money? Short answer: by owning their own company or by working for a publicly traded company at a senior executive level. The bottom-line is that the ranks of the super-wealthy do not (in terms of statistical significance) include the once middle class person who saved and truly diversified. Dont get me wrong, though. Those behaviors are very good and can result in outperformance and a much easier financial life. I just dont think that they are sufficient to creating super wealth. There are some great examples of superwealth created through investing, but by and large, such weatlh is created by managers of hedge funds and private equity firms who earn, along with co-investors, exceptional returns on their investments and who also get paid big salaries and performance bonuses as business owners or senior staff. Business people take meaningful business risks because they expect to get handsomely paid for those risks. And, beyond that, they place themselves in a position to impact the outcome. They bring inspiration and perspiration to the bet. This is unlike an investment portfolio held by the individual investor. What does it means to the average investor? In my opinion, it means that you take every step you can to create true portfolio diversification. Moreover, if you really want to be wealthy, you have to take meaningful risks. But an adviser is NOT ever going to recommend that you take a concentrated risk within your portfolio. You would have to decide to do that yourself. Akin to the risk you take in a career, a concentrated investment position could be a big failure or a big success. This is my opinion. You should discuss all portfolio decisions with your adviser as to suitability. Then, with full knowledge, you still might choose to embrace higher levels of risk and portfolio concentration.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 THE MOTLEY FOOL When you check a companys priceto-earnings (P/E) ratio, youre getting a sense of how richly its valued, relative to its earnings. But what if there are no earnings, such as with young companies or firms in temporarily tough times? In such cases, you can focus on sales (often referred to as revenue), via the price-tosales ratio (PSR). The PSR takes the market capitalization of a company and divides it by the last 12 months sales. The market cap is the current value that the market is giving the company, arrived at by multiplying the current share price by the number of shares outstanding. Imagine Global Telepathic Messaging (ticker: ESPME). Lets say it has 10 million shares outstanding, at $10 a share, giving it a market capitalization of $100 million. If it had $200 million in sales over the last year, its PSR would be 0.50 ($100 million divided by $200 million equals 0.50). Assume that Global Telepathic Messaging lost money in the past year, but has a Meet the PSR Ratio 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. Dividends Demystified Q Whats a dividend? M.J., Santa Rosa, Calif.A Its a payment that many companies make to shareholders out of their earnings. If Dodgeball Supply Co. (ticker: WHAPP) earns $2 per share in profit, it might decide to issue $1 annually to shareholders, using the balance in other ways, such as building its business or paying down debt.It will probably pay out 25 cents per share every three months. This may seem like peanuts, but it adds up. If you own 400 shares of a company thats paying $1.50 per share in annual dividends, youll get $600 per year from the company. Plus, healthy companies generally increase their dividend amounts periodically. (Its not unusual for smaller, faster-growing companies, or ones without relatively predictable earnings, to not pay a dividend.)Youll often see a dividend expressed as a yield. A companys dividend yield is its annual dividend divided by its current stock price. So a company paying $2 per year and trading for $50 per share would have a yield of 4 percent (2 divided by 50 is 0.04).Q Whats a money market fund? R.Z., Richmond, Va.A Its a mutual fund that invests your money in short-term, highquality investments such as Treasury bills, short-term commercial debt and certificates of deposit. Thus, its a relatively safe investment.Money market yields vary according to short-term interest rates and typically exceed rates offered by standard bank accounts. But they fall dramatically short of the stock markets historical average annual return of 10 percent. Theyre great for short-term savings, but ill-suited for long-term investments, as your money wont grow very quickly.

Ask the Fool Fools School My Smartest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & EnrichPSR of 0.50 when its peers have PSRs of 1.0 or higher. If it can turn itself around and start making money again, its likely to have a substantial upside relative to its competitors. (Of course, its price may be low for good reason.) There are some years when many companies in an industry are not profitable. This doesnt mean theyre all worthless and theres no way to compare them. Just use the PSR instead of the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio. Measure how much youd be paying for a dollar of sales instead of a dollar of earnings. Compare the PSR with sales growth, too. A high PSR isnt necessarily bad if sales are growing rapidly. Despite its usefulness, though, the PSR should never be the only number you crunch. It can show you a companys value relative to its peers, but revenues must be transformed into rising earnings to make shareholders happy. How much a company earns from its sales will eventually shape the value of the business and the stock. My smartest investment was buying Yahoo! shares in the mid-1990s when they had fallen to what seemed like a reasonable level to me. Twice I sold off shares when they seemed to be too lofty. Its volatility didnt bother me at all, and my success with it more than made up for all my earlier mistakes. J.N., Vero Beach, Fla.The Fool Responds : You did many things right, beginning with paying attention to whether the stock seemed undervalued or overvalued. Too many people simply jump into great companies when theyre overvalued. If youre not too certain of continued growth, it can be a good idea to sell all, or at least some, of your shares. If you still have long-term confidence in the company, though, consider hanging on. When a stock has surged in value, some investors like to sell enough of their shares to get back their initial investment the remaining shares growth is then gravy. Experienced investors know that they will occasionally lose money on some stocks, but ideally, their winners will outweigh their losers by a wide margin. The Motley Fool TakeChinas largely autonomous region of Macau is still a long way from being the diverse leisure destination Las Vegas has become. MGM Resorts, for example, generates more than half of its sales from nongaming activities in Las Vegas, but in Macau, gaming still accounts for more than 95 percent of sales. Executives at casino companies are hoping to change that over time. New Macau casinos have not only gaming attractions but also Vegas-style shows.Macau will never be Las Vegas, simply because of the much larger scale gaming has grown to in Macau, but a diversification away from relying on VIP gamblers would be a smart move.A Peek Into Macaus Future Name That CompanyBased in New York, I rake in more than $30 billion annually via cable network programming, filmed entertainment, television, direct broadcast satellite television, publishing, and more.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 BUSINESS B7 expected a year from now fell six points to 59 and perceptions of personal finances now compared to a year ago dropped four points to 45. Despite bleak economic news nationally, Florida experienced some positives. State unemployment (10.6 percent) declined for the fifth consecutive month, gasoline prices fell almost 15 cents per gallon, and the median price for a single-family home which has increased steadily since February increased again in May to $135,000. The consumer confidence index is benchmarked to 1966, so a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a 2; the highest is 150. CONFIDENCEFrom page 1targets. Its like when Willie Sutton was asked why he robbed banks, and he said it was because thats where the money is, says Mr. Presley. (Southwest Florida) is where the money is. But legitimate financial advisers and consultants say there are numerous steps that investors can take which will help to protect them against skillful predators. As with most things, due diligence is a must, and that begins with knowing something about the person with whom you are dealing. Consider advisers who offer many years of experience and then check with the appropriate regulatory body to see if their actual experience is as they represented, says Jeannette Showalter, a Certified Financial Adviser, commodity broker and financial columnist for Florida Weekly. Check both years of experience and, if any complaints, the nature of them and their resolution. FINRA, for example, offers an easyto-use checking system on its website at www.finra.org/brokercheck. A basic question that every would-be investor should ask is this, according to Mr. Simon, is this: Who holds the money? Legitimate firms use a third party or a custodian to hold their clients funds. One of the easiest solutions to much of this fraud is the structure our investment firm has in place, says John M. Ruff, senior portfolio manager at Naples Asset Management Company in Estero. All of our clients funds are in the custody of Fidelity, all checks are disbursed by them, (and) all deposits are paid to them through the clients account number. Mr. Simons firm uses a similar system. No one ever writes checks to me personally, he adds. Madoff and his crowd handled all the money, printed the statements and had family and friends doing audits, Mr. Ruff points out. (That is) a recipe for disaster, if you ask me. The first thing we tell a client is who will be holding their funds, says Drew Tyler of Capital Wealth Advisers in Naples. We stress that the custodian has those funds. The funds are never in my hands. One element of minor dispute among financial professionals is how much a person should rely on the recommendations of others family and friends when selecting a financial adviser. It was widely publicized that Mr. Madoff built his illicit empire almost solely on recommendations that circulated widely in the wealthy Jewish communities in Florida and New York. Soon, becoming a Madoff client was almost like being a member of an exclusive club. Mr. Presley sees nothing wrong with listening to the advice and experience of your friends and family. In fact, virtually all of his business comes from referrals, he notes. But he also says there can be an inherent danger in taking this approach to an extreme. We all like to deal with people we are comfortable with, he says. But never buy something from someone simply because, say, they are white and you are white. Or because you are black and they are black. Or because they are Lutherans and you are a Lutheran. Factors like this do not belong in the equation. But referrals from trusted confidants are more likely to be valid than to falling for sales stratagems like offers of free lunches or dinners, where products are pitched to groups of investors. All the professionals surveyed conveyed the well-worn but never outdated advice that if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. This is not to say that there are no good deals out there to be had, but be careful and realize that every upside also has a downside as well. Mr. Simon probably summarizes this notion the best when he says: Just remember that if something can make a lot of money, it can probably lose a lot of money, too. If you can put a plus in front of something, there can also be a minus. Ms. Showalter adds: Rarely, an exceptional investment opportunity (high return and low risk) comes along. Most of the time, exceptional returns have higher risks or maybe the returns will not turn out to be as great. In Mr. Madoffs case, for example, some victims said they could not conceive of how such high returns could be sustained for years on end. Yet very few challenged the system or demanded a full accounting. In fact, when investigators debriefed many of Mr. Madoffs victims and asked them to explain the investment strategy, most could not. Many simply said it was complicated and let it go at that. They said they had read the documents presented to them but rarely challenged parts that were vague or beyond their comprehension. As a result, these investors paid a terrific price literally. They had neglected Ronald Reagans famous advice to trust but verify. Never, ever be afraid to ask your financial adviser anything, says Mr. Presley. And if (the adviser) will not answer or doesnt know the answer and isnt willing to find out what it is, you have a real problem. You have every right to honest responses to all of your questions or concerns. Remember this: It is your money. No one disputes that financial and wealth management is indeed complex. Most advisers today recommend seeking help from more than one. As in the field of medicine, specialization is becoming more widely accepted. Have several advisers and create a truly diversified portfolio, says Ms. Showalter, adding that an investment team might include specialists in things like municipal bonds, commodities and annuities. Learn as much as you can about your investments and wealth management, but also realize that, at the end of the day, you will very likely need a qualified manager to get you where you want to go especially in perilous economic times like these. It is true, says Mr. Presley of selfinvesting, that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. So, back to the good news. The world is not rife with Bernard Madoffs, and there are many good, honest financial advisers to be found. Now, the bad news. There are at least a few Madoff clones roaming the landscape, and the landscape they so dearly love just happens to be right down here in South Florida.

The board of director of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts has named Kathleen van Bergen to succeed Myra Janco Daniels as CEO of Southwest Floridas largest arts organization. Ms. Van Bergen will take the helm of the Phil on Sept. 1, bringing strong musical and management backgrounds to the position. She is currently artistic and executive director of the Schubert Club, in St. Paul, Minn., one of the countrys oldest and most respected cultural Philharmonic names new CEOSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYCOURTESY IMAGEKathleen van Bergen will take over the reins at the Phil when Myra Daniels retires in September. FILMS ABOUT ART ARE QUIRKY LITTLE THINGS. Theyre not just entertaining and educational, telling you more about a particular artist or style of art. The really g ood ones can open your eyes to color and shapes and form in the world around you. They can make you sit stunned, in awe. They can deliver a creative jumpstart, a jolt. When done well, films about art are art themselves. Heres a look at five that have done it right: How to Draw a BunnyJohn Walter and Andrew Moore Dont be misled; How to Draw a Bunny isnt an instruction video, its a documentary about collagist and mail artist Ray Johnson, the enigmatic Pop Art figure who sent out thousands of original collages through the mail. Sometimes hed instruct the recipient to add something to it and send it on to someone else. Sometimes people did, sometimes they didnt. Mr. Johnson hung out with Andy Warhol. He was known by James Rosenquist, Roy Litchenstein, Christo, Jean-Claude and Chuck Close, all of whom appear in the film. Dealing with him or speaking with him was like Alice falling down the rabbit hole, someone in the movie comments. Hes called A Zen master, an eye-opener. Considered THE pioneer of mail art, Mr. Johnson turned selling his art into performance art, delighting in the absurd. For example, he offered to sell a piece to Peter Schuyff and asked him how much he could pay. When Mr. Schuyff offered $1,000, Mr. Johnson countered with $2,000. Mr. Schuyff then said he could pay $1,500, and Mr. Johnson agreed. But when Mr. Schuyff received the collage, he discovered the artist had cut out the lower right quarter of it $500 worth, one-fourth of Mr. Johnsons original asking price. How to Draw a Bunny is full of stories like this.SEE PHIL, C5 SEE ART FILMS, C4 he he h c c ou ou ou u ld ld ld d d d p p p p p ay ay ay ay a y y Wh Wh Wh h h h en en en en e en n n M M M M M r. r. r.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 Years ago I read an essay by Judith Newman about why she and her husband keep separate apartments. My husband and I have been married for 14 years, and weve never lived together, Mrs. Newman wrote. In fact, there are many practical reasons we keep separate apartments. First, we live in New York City, land of wildly expensive real estate and no space. Neither of our places costs much. Mine is small; his is rent stabilized, meaning it is too cheap, by New York standards, to give up. Whats more, she said, having their own living accommodations gives the couple breathing room, the ability to say, in her words, I love you, honey; now get the hell out of here! I was scandalized when I first read the piece. How could two people who claim to be in love not want to spend every waking moment together? Now with the wisdom of a few years behind me, I understand better what she meant. When I read the essay these days, I nod at every salient detail. Theres a reason the courtship days are the giddiest time that reason involves not knowing every nasty detail Separate living quarters make for happy mates SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com I love you, honey; now get the hell out of here!....about each other, she says. Ive never walked in on John in the bathroom. He has never clipped his toenails in bed. June Carter Cash, country music legend and wife of reformed bad boy Johnny Cash, often credited their lasting marriage to separate bathrooms. I imagine her reasoning follows the same track: less intimacy in the places you dont want it; the ability to maintain an air of mystery in a shared space. Having distinct living quarters like having separate bathrooms lets each person expand into his or her own place. Many of the usual disagreements evaporate. There is an old marriage counseling anecdote that tells of the couple who bickered about the way their spouse squeezed a tube of toothpaste. She always squeezes from the bottom, the husband complained. It drives me nuts. Well, he always squeezes from the middle, the wife said. Ive done everything I can to change him. The marriage counselors solution? Buy two tubes of toothpaste. This summer Im sharing living quarters with a man for the first time in a long time, and Im remembering the challenges that come with it. But heres something different: Although we have a communal bathroom, we have separate bedrooms. Already his room has become a man lair, complete with tinfoil-covered windows and a pile of dirty underpants in the corner. My room, on the other hand, is light and airy, with pairs of shoes lined in neat rows and dresses hung on wooden hangers in the closet. I know better than to straighten up his room; he doesnt leave his socks on my floor. I like our detached living arrangements and for the first time I can see the reasoning behind Mrs. Newmans. To us, living together in the same physical space has nothing to do with living in the same emotional space, she writes. Our lives are entangled, hopelessly, irrevocably and, for the most part, happily. Even in separate quarters. n h d e n s e e h e

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 Although everyone who came into contact with Ray Johnson has a story, it appeared that no one truly knew him, not even his partner of 20 years. No wonder he was called New Yorks most famous unknown artist. This somewhat surreal movie itself is like one of his collages: an image here, a story there, odd pieces put together to form a picture of a life. But that picture is very difficult to interpret. Especially when you learn that he killed himself at age 67, leaving behind no note. How to Draw a Bunny begins and ends with the artists suicide by drowning on a Friday the 13th. He left behind a house filled with boxes containing thousands of works of art. Though the film shows us many of his works, I would have liked to see even more. At the end, the filmmaker himself says the definitive movie about Mr. Johnson and his art has yet to be made, and that perhaps How to Draw a Bunny will spur someone else to do so. Running time: 90 minutes Andy Goldsworthy, Rivers and Tides: Working With TimeThomas Riedelsheimer Sculptor Andy Goldsworthy relies on nature as his medium nature, and time. His site-specific art uses water, rocks, stone, leaves, flowers, twigs. When the tide is low, Mr. Goldsworthy builds large vase-shaped objects out of stone or twigs, and then watches, and photographs, what happens as the water rolls in. Through time-lapse photography, we see an ice sculpture melt, or a design of twigs in a meadow shift with the wind and become bleached in the sun, changing with the elements. The transitory nature of Mr. Goldsworthys work emphases birth and life and the cycle of life. The real work is the change, he declares at one point. The images in Rivers and Tides: Working With Time are so haunting, so beautiful, that I often wanted to just freeze the frame and stare at the screen for a while. (Among the extras on the DVD is a photo gallery of some of Mr. Goldsworthys organic sculptures.) We get to watch him work, a task that seems equal parts discipline and play. And he talks willingly, with poignancy and precision, about his process. This is just a stunningly beautiful DVD that emphasizes the transitory nature of life. Art for me is a form of nourishment, he says. I need the land. I need it. I want to understand that state and that energy that I have in me (and) that I also feel in the plants and in the land. Energy and life that is running through, flowing through the landscape. Running time: 90 minutes HelveticaGary Hustwit Helvetica is a movie about typography for people who dont think theyre interested in typography. A Swiss typeface created in 1957 to be fresh and modern, Helvetica was so popular that designers began using it on everything: business logos, stamps, signage, advertising, etc. The AmericanAirlines logo is Helvetica. The signage for the New York subway system is Helvetica. IRS tax forms are in Helvetica. The logos for Crate&Barrel and American Apparel and The Gap are in Helvetica. Director Gary Hustwit interviews various designers around the world about the importance of Helvetica and what makes it work. One calls it bracing and thrilling. Another exclaims, Oh, its brilliant when (used) well! Its classic, timeless and ubiquitous. But familiarity can breed contempt, and in some ways, that has been Helveticas downfall. Mr. Hustwit interviews designers who hate Helvetica and have rebelled against it. One calls it a nightmare, a total nightmare. Its too familiar, too dull, too predictable, they complain. Its the off-white of typefaces. He interviews design superstars such as Paula Scher, Stefan Sagmeister, David Carson. Older ones become positively poetic when speaking about the typeface, talking in passionate, lyrical terms. But then, as with many trends, theres been a backlash to the backlash, and some younger designers are once again embracing Helvetica. One explains that he grew up with it, saying, its a natural mother tongue almost in our blood. Mr. Hustwit is careful to present both sides, all the while showing us example after example after example in the world around us. Running time: 80 minutesObjectifiedGary Hustwit The follow-up film to Helvetica, Objectified is the second in what is turning out to be a design trilogy. In this gorgeous film that looks at the role of industrial design in our lives, the director interviews those who create the style and look of our lives: our toothbrushes, alarm clocks, laptops, teapots, radios, faucets, furniture and cars. Once again, Mr. Hustwit travels around the world to talk with designers in New York, Paris, Amsterdam, London, Tehran and Milan, at firms such as Apple, Braun and IDEO. Through his film and his artists eye for composition, he helps us see the beauty of everyday things, from plastic chairs to hedge clippers. According to Dieter Rams, former design director of Braun in Germany, Good design should be innovative makes a product useful is aesthetic design will make a product understandable is honest unobtrusive consistent in every detail is as little design as possible. After seeing Objectified, youll never look at the things around you in the same way ever again. Running time: 75 minutes Exit Through the Gift ShopBanksy The Academy Award-nominated Exit Through the Gift Shop is much like the mainstream blockbuster Inception everyone has a different opinion and interpretation of the movie. Allegedly a documentary about street art, (SPOILER ALERT), its quite possible or probable the film is actually a mockumentary or a hoax. On the surface, its the story of Thierry Guetta, a Frenchman living in Los Angeles, who decides to make a film about street art. He begins following various artists, including Shepard Fairey and the reclusive Banksy. But Mr. Guetta doesnt have the first clue about how to make a film. Banksy takes over, and Mr. Guetta decides to become an artist himself. Calling himself Mr. Brainwash, he holds his first show, preselling $100,000 worth of his work and becoming the subject of a cover story in LA Weekly. Art collectors go crazy. Madonna asks him to design the cover of her greatest hits album. As a viewer watching Exit Through the Gift Shop, you ask yourself: What do I really know to be true? What is real? And you quickly realize: very little. Its quite likely this film is a huge prank. If it were literature, Mr. Guetta would probably be referred to as an unreliable narrator. He strikes me as a trickster. Its quite possible that the joke is on the viewer, and on the collectors who rush to purchase Mr. Guettas art which may not even be his own. He has crews of people making the art for him crews that have also made art for Banksy and Mr. Fairey. The entire film could be a ruse by legendary street artist Banksy. Or maybe not. It certainly seems a commentary on consumerism and celebrity in the art field, and a laugh at those gullible enough to buy anything thats hyped. (Hence, the title, Exit Through the Gift Shop.)

It is an honor to be entrusted with the legacy that Myra Daniels has built, Ms. van Bergen said. I look forward to leading this unique organization that celebrates the visual and performing arts and plays a significant role in the cultural life of the community. Mrs. Daniels called Ms. van Bergen a highly intelligent young woman and a good communicator with a strong music background. We are excited about her coming to Naples and wish her the best. The Schubert Club, Minnesotas first arts organization, has brought many of the worlds great classical musicians to the St. Paul area. It presents a variety of concert series and partners with the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and other arts groups. The Schubert Club also includes a 5,000-square-foot museum dedicated to the evolution of the keyboard, featuring musical instruments and letters from composers such as Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Brahms. The organization has flourished financially and artistically under Ms. van Bergens leadership, which she assumed in 2008. She was chosen for the Naples position by a search committee that included Philharmonic Center board members William Schoen, Robert Morris, Ned Lautenbach, Jay Baker, Linda Flewelling, William Steere, George Sypert and Eugene Frey. The executive committee of the Philharmonic Centers board of directors issued the following statement: We recognize the outstanding job that Myra Daniels has done over the years in building and running this organization. This truly is the House that Myra Built. We are encouraged by Kathleen van Bergen taking over now as president and chief executive officer, carrying on the work that Myra has done. Its an exciting time for this organization. PHILFrom page 1 DANIELS

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 COME WORK AND PLAY AT OUR BLACK BOX THEATER STAGE MANAGERS AND SOUND/LIGHTING ARTISTS ARTISTIC DIRECTOR EXPERIENCED DIRECTORS ARTS COMMENTARY Few sounds are as viscerally satisfying as that of dozens of tap-dancing feet pounding the stage in unified rhythm. You feel it in your gut. And 2nd Street, The Naples Players summer musical, is all about tap dancing. Even before you see the performers, you hear the shout: Get out your tap shoes, Frances! And as the curtain rises, it pauses for a moment allowing the audience to focus solely on the legs and feet of dancers click-clacking in rapid syncopation before ascending all the way. 2nd Street is a musical about a musical, and the opening scene is a dance audition for Pretty Lady, a Broadway show to be directed by the famous Julian Marsh (David Goguen). Its 1933, and these performers would much rather be in the chorus line than on the bread line. In addition to being all about tap, 2nd Street is also about that treasured dream every performer has: to come out of nowhere and, without even having to pay your dues, become the star of a hit Broadway show, winning the love and approval of the tough director and all your cast mates. Its a dream shared by countless others in this contemporary world of American Idol and Americas Got Talent! where everyone wants to be an instant celebrity. But Peggy Sawyer (Rachel Aryn), the star of this show, has something many of those contestants lack: talent. And humility. Ms. Aryn is well cast in this role. Shes so sweet, and so vulnerable, that you cant help but cheer for her, even as she bumbles her way through rehearsals and accidentally trips the star, Dorothy Brock (Debi Guthery), causing her to break her ankle. Ms. Aryns Peggy is unsure of herself, unaware of how talented she is, but everyone else recognizes it, and they champion her. You can tell this is a fantasy, a tribute to kinder, more generous times when people used words like grand and swell! Its campy and, yes, corny but its totally enjoyable. 2nd Street isnt meat to digest; its cotton candy, a light confection of a musical. Its a sweet kiss on the cheek of musical theater. And The Naples Players hit just the right tone with it. In this hyperbolic show, everyone speaks in italics, or as though every sentence has multiple exclamation points at the end of it. Its a challenging show, one you might not expect a community theater to tackle. And the Players, with their history of stiff-moving male actors, did not seem a likely candidate for this show. But director/choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara has been working with this troupe over the years, and shes accomplished miracles with them. You would never guess that some of these actors had never tap danced prior to this show. And while this isnt the Broadway cast of Anything Goes, theyre very impressive. And entertaining. 2nd Street is an ensemble show, with a cast of more than 30 people, but some performances stand out, deserving special mention. Ms. Guthery, as the past-her-prime prima donna Dorothy Brock, had me laughing every time she was on stage. Especially hilarious was The Shadow Waltz, where she stumbled about and ducked leaping dancers. But Ms. Guthery is careful not to let her diva become a caricature, and shows off her serious side with her rendition of I Only Have Eyes for You. Likewise, Ellen Cooper, as the songwriter and co-author of Pretty Lady, also had me laughing with her witticisms and wisecracks. Shes one of the Players best character actors, and her portrayal of Maggie Jones is no exception. The underutilized Mark Vanagas, as Andy, the shows dance captain, was wonderful to watch, especially as he tapped so expressively in the opening number. Hes so good its a pity he has such a small role. And Jessica Walck as Anytime Annie, a wise-cracking chorus girl always ready for a good time, is someone to keep your eye on. A saucy redhead who sparkles whenever shes stage, shes featured in the Shuffle Off to Buffalo and Theres a Sunny Side to Every Situation numbers. Jason Eugenides, as her hapless groom, was also fun to watch. But some characters puzzled me. Jake Hanson is brash as Billy Lawlor, one of the leads in Pretty Lady. Unfortunately, hes not the strongest singer. I also couldnt tell if he is genuinely interested in Peggy, or if he just goes after all the new girls. And while Mr. Goguen is good as director Julian Marsh, giving impassioned speeches about Broadway, I wish he had been more forceful in his role as director. It also wasnt clear whether he was falling in love with Peggy, the new lead in his show, or was just being manipulative. (Its also surprising as it is at every production of 2nd Street when hes the last to come out for bows at the curtain call, because the role doesnt strike you as the shows lead.) And although I enjoyed Bill Ziff-Levine when he was on stage and would like to see him in other roles, he seems miscast as Pat, Dorothys boyfriend. I could understand why Abner (Gary Strahan), her sugar daddy, is older, but Mr. ZiffLevine comes across as a little too old for the role of boyfriend. The 14-piece orchestra, led by musical director Charles Fornara, is fabulous; its nice to see that the Sugden didnt stint on musicians. Their sound is rich and full, impressive from the very first notes of the overture. (Compare that to the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, which usually has four or five musicians in the pit and a heavy reliance on a synthesizer.) Scenic designer Matt Flynns sets for 2nd Street are impressive, especially the backdrop of Broadway with its various neon signs. Lighting was a little shaky on opening night, especially when spotlights were supposed to alternate between two scenes on the same stage. Costume designer Dot Auchmoody brings us back to the 1930s with period clothing. The numerous oversized headpieces in the Dames number each more outrageous and zany than the last, with feathers and sequins had me laughing. This is a big show with big ambitions, and The Naples Players fulfill them, time after time, with tap dancing galore and big number after big number, including Audition, Shadow Waltz, Were in the Money, Dames and 2nd Street. On opening night, the audience cheered the performers. 2nd Street is a feel-good show that pulls out all the stops. Itll leave you humming the classic songs after you leave the theater and perhaps debating whether its too late to sign up for tap lessons. nancySTETSON nstetson@floridaweekly.com Exhilarating nd Street taps its way into your heart >> nd Street >> When: Through July 30 >> Where: Sugden Community Theatre, 701 Fifth Ave. S., Naples >> Cost: $30 ($10 for students); dinner and show, $50 >> Info: 263-7990 or www.naplesplayers.org in the know COURTESY PHOTOThe ensemble cast of nd Street includes more than a few actors who had never tap-danced before landing their roles in The Naples Players production.

Thanks to proceeds from TIFs Fund A Dream auction held last November as part of the foundations Charity Classic, the students recently made their first trip to Washington, D.C. And what a trip it was.Chosen for the trip based on grades, first-time experiences, age, attendance and essays they submitted, the five students Lemuel Sanchez, Efren Corona, Cassandra Banda-Chavez, Linsey Deshommes and Natrone Means boarded a plane bound for the nations capitol from Southwest Florida International Airport on Sunday, June 12. It was the beginning of many firsts for the students: first plane trip, first time away from home, and eventually their first cab ride and first time on a subway.TSIC student advocate Noemi Perez accompanied the teens on the trip. The moment we stepped off the plane in D.C., you could just see the sense of wonderment in their eyes, she says. It was exciting for all of us. Upon arrival, the students immediately began preparations for a weeks worth of adventure, learning and sightseeing. They took part in the Program for New Americans offered by Close Up, a nonprofit that educates and inspires young people to become informed and engaged citizens. It was so much more than just a tour of the famous memorials and monuments of our nations capital, Ms. Perez says. It gave our students an understanding of politics and culture by emphasizing communication, collaboration and leadership. Throughout the week, TIF students had a one-of-a-kind opportunity to live and learn among their peers from high schools nationwide. They experienced first-hand how the founding documents such as the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence apply to them, and they met with representatives from Washingtons diverse community of leaders and citizens. I saw the city as inspiring, Mr. Means says. We got to see and learn about the things that people have done so that we have our freedom. Mr. Corona found inspiration in the people of the city. It was exciting, he says. I saw new places and met new people. With the help of program instructors, the students were also able to consider how the people and events represented in D.C.s memorials impact their lives today. They returned home knowing they have key roles to play as informed and engaged participants in the U.S. democracy. It was a visit they will not soon forget. For Ms. Banda-Chavez, the citys rich history will be etched in her memory. I really loved the Capitol building, she says. The top of the building represents freedom, and you can see it from anywhere. There are so many different perspectives in the city and a history behind everything. The trip was amazing. Giving students opportunities and making dreams come true is the very foundation upon which The Immokalee Foundation is built. Since 1991, TIF has been building pathways to success for many of the children in Immokalee through a variety of programs that focus on mentorship, afterschool activities, college scholarships, the development of vocational skills and incentives for educational growth. Foundation programs focus on building pathways to success though college and vocational scholarships, mentoring and tutoring opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2011 C11 Naples Daily News naplesnews.comBonita Daily News BonitaNews.com choice CHAMPION2010southwest orida Sometimes its the little boy in you who ends up reviewing movies, and thats whats happened here. From a critical standpoint, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is a big, loud eye candy mess with a rambling story that runs way too long. And still, on numerous action-filled occasions I was darned if I didnt find myself saying, Wow! Thats so cool! and eagerly anticipating more of the same. Still bothered by his pesky parents (Kevin Dunn and Julie White), Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) has a new girlfriend, Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), but no job. He also thinks Carlys boss (Patrick Dempsey, hair looking better than ever) is trying to steal her away. All that is small potatoes, however, compared to Sams other worry: Decepticons, still led by Megatron (voice of Hugo Weaving), are again plotting to take over the world. Sam, Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and Simmons (John Turturro) are eager to work with Autobot leader Optimus Prime (voice of Peter Cullen) and do their part, but they first have to work through the bureaucratic stifling of the director of national intelligence, Charlotte Mearing (Frances McDormand). That this ties into the space race, the 1969 moon landing, Chernobyl and other events in recent history is both cheeky and irrelevant its fun that it relates to what we know, but were really just here to see huge robots fight. And boy, do they!The action, crisp and clear, is an absolute blast. Better, the 3-D is the best weve seen since Avatar in that its vivid but never blurry or clutter ed. In fact, Mr. Bay has notably slowed the action: Theres a scene on a highway in which Sam is thrown from his protector, Bumblebee, and thrust through the air. Here and elsewhere, the director uses slow motion so we can see Sam flying and truly embrace the moment. It wouldve been expected of Mr. Bay to overdo the action (as he did in the last film, Revenge of the Fallen), but this is all easy to watch and a pure adrenaline rush. The acting throughout is serviceable. John Malkovich steals a few scenes as Sams boss; Tyrese is back for more tough-guy fun as Epps; Ken Jeong has an extended cameo; and Leonard Nimoy, Mr. Spock himself, is the voice of aged Autobot Sentinel Prime. As for the female lead, Ms. HuntingtonWhiteley, who is making her screen debut here, is fine. Its not about her acting anyway. All Mr. Bay ever requires of his leading ladies is that they look sexy, so hiring a Victorias Secret supermodel was a wise decision. Whats more, the audiences sky-high testosterone levels from watching the action only serve to make her more attractive. Sure, the ending is way too long, and numerous escapes and rescues come out of nowhere, but isnt that part of the fun? Bottom line: Transformers: Dark Of The Moon is a popcorn pleasure that wants to show you things youve never seen before. It succeeds. Dan Hudak is the chairman of the Florida Film Critics Circle and a nationally syndicated film critic. You can e-mail him at dan@hudakonhollywood.com and read more of his work at www.hudakonhollywood.com.Bad Teacher (Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, Justin Timberlake) Gold-digging teacher Liz (Ms. Diaz) wants to marry a rich substitute (Mr. Timberlake), but a nosey fellow teacher (Lucy Punch) is also interested in him. Its occasionally funny, but the story lacks drive, and theres nothing really holding it together. At least Ms. Diaz looks hot. Rated R.Beginners (Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, Melanie Laurent) After his father (Mr. Plummer) comes out as a gay man at age 75 and dies of cancer four years later, Oliver (Mr. McGregor) tries to makes sense of the lessons his father taught him in his new relationship with an aspiring actress (Mr. Laurent). Mr. Plummer oozes vitality as an elderly man whos finally comfortable with himself, and credit to Mr. McGregor for keeping the picture grounded. That said, Olivers relationship struggles get tedious after awhile. Rated R.Buck (Buck Brannaman, Robert Redford, Reata Brannaman) This is a 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 it is fascinating to see him connect with and break a wild horse. Rated PG.

They have flashing lights and moving decorations and they make lots of noise. Studies show that all of these features add to the excitement of the game. So try to imagine the first coin-operated vending machines that were used in 200 B.C. to dispense holy water. They were plain clay pots with levers. In England, tobacco could be purchased from a coin-operated machine by the 1600s. New technology was used to make the machines of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. After the Civil War, all kinds of coin-operated machines were found in many stores. A pony on a stand could give a bouncy ride for a dime. Some machines dispensed merchandise like perfume, gum or cigarettes. Some were games of skill. And some told fortunes or dispensed cards picturing movie stars or bathing beauties. Many played music. Collectors today like all types arcade games, gambling games and dispensers. There are experts who can repair the machines and stores that sell missing decals and parts, so even an old damaged machine can become an attractive part of a collection. But remember, some states have strict gambling laws, and it may be illegal to let others use your antique slots. Ms. Kovel answers your questions:Q: I have seven jigsaw puzzles made in the 1940s. The puzzles, each 14 inches by 22 inches, were manufactured by Jaymar Specialty Co. of New York City. Six of the puzzles picture familiar Disney cartoon characters, including Mickey Mouse and Goofy. But one of them shows 13 Gremlins destroying a U.S. Army Air Corps fighter plane while its engaged in combat with Japanese warplanes. Whats that about?A: Your mysterious puzzle pictures are Disney characters. During World War II, fighter pilots blamed engine trouble or any bad luck on imp-like creatures they called gremlins. The term became familiar to Americans via magazine articles and the letters pilots sent home. Roald Dahl (1916-1990), who would go on to become a famous author of childrens books, was a British Royal Air Force pilot during the war. He collected stories about the Gremlins, and a friend of his sent the stories to the Walt Disney Co. Disney studio artists illustrated a magazine article based on Dahls stories, which led to the 1943 publication of Dahls first childrens book, The Gremlins. Although Disneys plans to use the stories as the basis for a feature film or an animated short did not pan out, Dahls Gremlins were featured in a nine-episode series of Disney comics in 1943 and At the same time, the studio produced some Gremlin promotional items, which must have included your puzzle.Antique slot machines attractive to collectors terryKOVEL news@floridaweekly.com SEE KOVELS, C13

Were there ever any signatures on her original work? How can collectors recognize an authentic piece? A: Mary Gregory glass is a real problem for collectors. Recent research indicates that much of the information printed about Gregory as recently as the 1970s is a myth. Mary Gregory glass is the name we have given to any glass decorated with whiteenamel-painted children. There was a real person named Mary Gregory, and she did indeed work for the Boston and Sandwich Glass Co. in Sandwich, Mass., in the 1880s. But she probably never decorated glass with paintings of children. In fact, no evidence has been found that Boston and Sandwich ever produced that kind of glass. Experts have concluded that the glass we call Mary Gregory actually is Bohemian glass imported to the Sandwich area after the factory closed in 1888. It was apparently passed off to tourists as Sandwich glass. Many examples of decorative glass with painted children are known to have been made in Bohemia and England in the late 19th century and later in the United States. The glass has remained popular. Q: My fathers favorite gift to my mother was Kremitz jewelry. Is there a market for it? Is it considered costume jewelry? A: Marks on jewelry often are hard to read because theyre so small. Your mothers jewelry was probably made by Krementz & Co., founded in 1866 in Newark, N.J., by George Krementz and his cousin. The company is still in business. It is known for its high-end costume jewelry. Single pieces can sell for several hundred dollars. Tip: Old pantyhose are good to use to apply an oil finish to furniture. Remove all elastic first. The material does not leave lint. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

WINE DOWN WEDNESDAY 6pm-9pmLive Jazz Reduced Prices Complimentary Wine TastingsHAPPY HOUR 1/2 OFF All Drinks in the M Lounge Every Day 4pm-6pm SUNDAY BRUNCH Serving 10:30am-3pm Argentina evokes images of pampas grasslands, the towering Andes and welldressed couples dancing the tango. Also among its claims to fame, however, is the countrys ranking as the fifth largest producer of wine in the world, behind Italy, France, Spain and the United States. Wine is so important to Argentineans that late last year, President Cristina Kirchner declared wine the national drink to help promote the industry beyond the countrys borders. I recently attended a wine tasting at Tonys off Third in Naples that featured the wines of Paul Hobbs Imports. A wellknown California winemaker, Mr. Hobbs started making wines in 1969 and has worked at Robert Mondavi, Opus One and Simi Winery as well as consulted with other premium wineries. He branched out into making wines in Argentina in the late 1990s under the Vina Cobos label. Along with two partners, he consistently releases fine wines, most notably malbec. While Francisco Cortes Lepis, commercial director of Vina Cobos, poured samples at the wine tasting, he told me why the companys wines are so well received. The key is to have the right grapes to make the wine right, Mr. Lepis said. You work all year in the vineyards to do that. You cannot expect to make magic in the winery if you have not labored over the grapes to get them to be their best. Armed with good grapes, the next step is artful processing. You must strike a balance between the fruit and the oak, he said. The oak has to give complexity and not cover up the fruit. Everyone at the sampling had a favorite. Barbara Holloway of Naples liked the Pulenta Sauvignon Blanc because it has great flavor and is nice and light. Her next favorite was the Bramare malbec, with its rich color and flavors. Stacy Forman, also of Naples, preferred the malbecs as her favorite. Its such a smooth wine, and has really complex flavors, she said. Here are the wines sampled, including those from Vina Cobos Winery along with selections from Riglos and Pulenta Wineries, which are imported by Paul Hobbs: Vina Cobos Felino Chardonnay 2007 ($20): With only 20 percent of the wine finished in oak, this light-colored, buttery chardonnay has aromas of ripe pears followed on the palate by tropical flavors and a clean citrus finish. Vina Cobos Felino Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 ($20): The deep ruby-colored wine has rich aromas of black fruits and spice. The complex palate with boysenberry, black currants and coffee finishes with ripe tannins and a touch of minerality. Vina Cobos Felino Malbec 2009 ($20): Deep crimson in color, it has a distinct raspberry and coca aroma that gives way to complex red and black fruits on the palate and has a touch of oak finish. Mr. Lepis said eight months in oak give it a rich, spicy taste. Riglos Gran Malbec 2006 ($30): Very smooth and dry with good body and a rich purple color, its plum and wild cherry aromas blend into red berry and dark fruits on the palate, followed by hints of chocolate, espresso and oak on the long succulent finish. Bramare Malbec Lujan de Cuyo 2007 ($30): This one is violet in color and has a ripe and powerful berry nose. The silky palate has complex raspberry, blueberry and coffee flavors, while the firm tannins produce an extensive finish. Pulenta Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2008 ($18): Brilliant yellow color with rounded citrus and melon on the nose and the palate, this one has a slight grassiness with a crisp and clean finish. Pulenta Estate Chardonnay 2007 ($20): This one has a nice, yellow-green color with tropical fruit and citrus aromas that give way to balanced citrus and apple flavors with a hint of vanilla and oak. It ends with a balanced long finish. Pulenta La Flor Malbec Rose 2009 ($16): Bright strawberry colors and aroma mix with tropical fruit on the palate, ending with refreshing acidity.

Either way, I highly recommend arranging to visit this lovely little restaurant on a night when violinist Oleg Timuta is performing. Mr. Timutas broad repertoire includes selections as diverse as Hello Dolly, Yesterday, My Way and a fascinating number called Skylark, in which he uses his instrument to mimic the sounds of a skylark, a chicken, a woodpecker, a cuckoo and a cow. Really. He doesnt have to stroll too much, since the dining room is fairly small and hes relatively close to just about all of the tables when he stands near the long bar along a side wall. Meanwhile, Chef Daniela and her accommodating family make sure that everyone is well served. The menu offers Romanian, Hungarian and Italian items, which might seem an unlikely combination, but the kitchen has managed to create a harmonious balance of the three cuisines. Whether its Hungarian goulash, lush ravioli or savory sausage, its all made from scratch on the premises. Considering how readily available packaged pasta and readymade sausages are and how ubiquitous is their use its that much more impressive that a small establishment such as Danielas would go to the trouble of making its own. The result, however, is a meal as comforting and heartwarming as those my grandmother used to make. Clearly, Chef Daniela has incorporated her familys recipes into the mix, starting with salata de vinete, otherwise known as Moms delicious eggplant spread ($6.50). Smooth and lightly seasoned so as not to overpower the eggplant, its delicious, indeed, scooped up with pieces of freshly baked bread. The chiftelute, traditional Romanian meatballs ($6.95), consisted of small meatballs served with pickles. Although it doesnt seem like a natural combination, they went together beautifully, the cool crispness of the pickles complementing the soft, chewy meatballs.

FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Enjoy a taste of Eastern Europe during an evening at Danielas e lp s o ur tastes s our to v ory f lavo r Student s Send items to cuisine@floridaweekly.comThe Transylvanian platter presents cabbage rolls, hand-rolled sausages, chicken paprikash with spaetzle, polenta and vegetables.Homemade spinach ravioli are filled with pumpkin, ricotta and Parmesan and finished with a light bchamel sauce.was the tonno fagiolli cipolla ($7.50), a mix of tuna, beans and onions that lacked the depth of flavor the other two starters possessed. Next time Im going to try the goulash. Although Eastern Europe has a reputation for being meat-centric, vegetarians have several options here, including the capallacci verde alla zucca ($15), delicate pillows filled with pumpkin, ricotta and Parmesan topped with a light bchamel sauce. This dish showcased the chefs ability to meld subtle flavors to achieve a rich, unified whole. Two of us shared the whimsically named Transylv ania platter ($36.95 for two), which contained a trio of house specialties: sarmale, old-fashioned cabbage rolls stuffed with meat and rice; mititei, Romanian-style hand-rolled sausages; and csirke paprikas, the classic Hungarian chicken stew. The assorted items were served on a large platter that also held slices of polenta dressed in yogurt, delicate spaetzle and a mix of zucchini, eggplant and onions. The sausage a blend of beef, pork and lamb was lightly seasoned and fine on its own or with a dip into the pool of mustard served with it. This is an ideal entre for those who want an introduction to Eastern European cuisine. Our young server the teen-aged daughter of the chef proudly touted her mothers tiramisu and chocolate mousse for dessert. We tried one of each and agreed that they were both excellent, the tiramisu light and fluffy with a thin coating of cocoa on top, the mousse rich with a dense chocolate flavor. The wine list is relatively small, and those who choose the meatier fare from the menu might do better with a beer, but we gamely ordered a Romanian wine, a 2008 Tohaner Special Reserve Merlot. It was relatively light in body and flavor, with a touch of currants mingling with earthy tannins. Service was as homey as the food. The daughter of the chef provided most of it and was engaging as well as knowledgeable about the menu. She was justifiably proud of her mothers offerings and adept at offering suggestions. And then there was the music. Mr. Timuta is clearly an experienced violinist who understands music as well as the audiences for which he plays. He gave us a variety of old and new and, although his online resume shows extensive concert experience, he obviously knew that in a restaurant people would want to talk and he didnt try to compete with that. The dining room, with its sturdy wood bar and chairs, tables draped with white over nectarine tablecloths, seemed to have been lifted out of a small town in Romania and deposited whole in North Naples (in the same shopping center as Noodle Saigon). Add the music and its easy to imagine that youve landed in Eastern Europe in the home of a welcoming and culinarily talented family. Danielas is rich in Old World charm and food that has stood the test of time. Theres nothing glitzy or trendy here just wellcrafted food served by people who understand the meaning of hospitality. KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYTuna, beans and onions form a salad of sorts that lends an Italian flavor to Danielas menu. iety ine c ix e a o d h n w e wi th i t T hi s is a n id ea l en tr e f or va ri c orporated x starting known as a d ( $ 6.50). as not d eli h nw ith m like with it This is an ideal entre for va ri on li Res C r e P r ic e es B e v > > ch a > > de de li li c c a lls, og n te te d d V ol u P a r >> R e resum e e e e e e e e e e e e e sh h h h h h h ow o o o o o o s extensive concert ine on li >> R > > C > > P e ntr e > > B d d b a B o l ro ro as as > > V > > P Romanian meatballs served with pickles might seem an unusual combination to Americans, but its a great pairing.
