NOAAA satellite image of Hurricane Charley bearing down on Florida. Its all about happenstance, just as it was on Aug. 13, 2004, seven short years ago. Its simply a matter of what happened, what might happen again someday, and what will happen based on your own preparations. Beginning on a life-altering summer Friday, Hurricane Charley blew a hole through Sanibel and Captiva islands in Lee County, blasted across Charlotte Harbor, then hurtled right up the Peace River Basin, decimating Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Cleveland, Fort Ogden, Nocatee, Arcadia, Zolfo Springs and a lot of other places. It exited the state like a high-velocity round, through Orlando. Charley was nobodys idea of fun. A small, powerful storm with winds blowing up to 150 miles per hour, it offered only a single blessing: no storm surge. It left OR THE THIRD YEAR RUNNING, Florida Weekly abandons the pretensions of the best modern media that aim to provide serious, substantive journalism to astute readers and careful thinkers concerned with thorny contemporary issues, enlightened cultural events, and lively societal values. Enough already. Were rocketing right past that to get to the Truth. We begin by asking a difficult, age-old philosophic question: Why did the chicken cross the road? What were offering here may or may not be the answer. But at the very least its a double belt of fun on the rocks with a selection of our current favorite jokes. We arent kidding around, either.

Rick Perry called on his Christian constituents to devote a day to fasting and prayer last weekend, and he held a much-heralded religious rally at Houstons Reliant Stadium to underscore that point. Mr. Perry invited his fellow governors to participate, but only two chose to do so: Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas was there in person; the Moses of the Everglades, Floridas very own Gov. Rick Scott, was too busy screwing up things in Tallahassee to make an appearance, but he did send a video asking the 30,000 or so celebrants who assembled in the 71,000-seat stadium to pray for more jobs. Ordinarily, a Neanderthal Texas governor corralling a bunch of televangelists and right-wing fundamentalists (one participant famously denounced the Statue of Liberty as a false idol) for a biblical dogand-pony show would be of little interest to anyone outside of Amarillo or Lubbock. But Gov. Perry is the Next Big Thing in Republican politics and a likely candidate for the partys presidential nomination. Therefore, it was not only the eyes of Texas that were focused on his prayer party. I dont mean to pick at nits, but I found it unsettling that Gov. Perry urged Texans to fast. Texas is one of our poorest and hungriest states. About 17 percent of its residents live in poverty, which just about equals West Virginias rate, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. It also ranks second (behind Arkansas) in the percentage (25 percent) of children who are chronically malnourished. Really, governor, wouldnt it have made more sense to call for a day of feeding the starving? Gov. Perry has captured the fancy of reactionary elements within the Republican Party, and there are good reasons for that. He is ruggedly handsome and dresses like a GQ model (no one fills an empty suit better than the Texas governor). If you like your Christianity harsh and judgmental, hes your man. He is the darling of the oil barons and oligarchs in Dallas and Houston who created him and who retain the title to his soul. Contemptuous of the federal government and its authority, he absurdly flirted with taking Texas down the road of secession. He plays the role of the macho cowpoke to the hilt. He packs a pistol when goes out for his daily run, and there are innumerable photographs of him in jeans and denim shirts doing all sorts of rugged outdoor activities. This carefully cultivated frontier persona is oddly familiar, for Gov. Perry is really nothing more than Sarah Palin with testicles. His supporters will tell you that during his tenure Texas has created 850,000 jobs, which is more than all other states combined. That is true. It is also true that Mr. Perry increased the number of state jobs by almost 11 percent. His backers conveniently overlook that nasty $27 billion deficit and the draconian budget cuts that will shut down hundreds of nursing homes and medical facilities. Public education also got slammed on his watch something the state can ill afford, since Texas already ranks 44th in education spending per student. Gov. Perry, who was lieutenant governor under George W. Bush, became governor in December of 2000, when Mr. Bush departed for Washington. I was living in Texas at that time, and I can assure you that very few people took Gov. Perry (a former agriculture commissioner) seriously. The Bush/Perry tandem was routinely referred to as Dumb and Dumber. That may have been a tad harsh, but there is good reason to believe that few wheels spin behind Mr. Perrys engaging Marlboro Man smile. The governor of Texas wields scant power. The legislature calls the shots. Sadly, the Texas legislature is larded with Rick Perry clones. The Texas governor does set the tone for the state, however, and the tone in Texas now is that of disdain for anything that doesnt conform to the fears and prejudices of the extreme right wing. If Gov. Perry enters the race, poor Michele Bachmann will have to double the dose of her migraine medication. The swaggering honcho from Austin will steal a large chunk of her supporters the moment he announces. Hell cause problems for Mitt Romney, too. Gov. Perrys furious Wild West energy contrasts sharply with Mr. Romneys rigor mortis-like demeanor and patrician manner. Having followed Gov. Perrys career, one fact seems inescapable: His candidacy will have a short shelf life. He, like Ms. Palin, will not wear well. Good looks and boundless vivacity will take a candidate so far. At some point, he must demonstrate that he is a serious man with serious thoughts. Thats a steep hill for Gov. Perry to climb. There also is the Texas problem. Are we really ready for another Texan in the White House? The wounds inflicted by Mr. Bush have yet to heal, and that smirking, grating gunslinger shtick he so prized lingers in our collective memory. Gov. Perry has distanced himself from Mr. Bush, his onetime mentor. Seems that Gov. Perry now believes the former president was too progressive. That should send a shudder through the more enlightened elements of the electorate. As part of his preparation for a presidential campaign, Gov. Perry has sought the dubious advice and counsel of former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on matters relating to the military and foreign affairs. Mr. Rumsfeld makes periodic trips to Texas to tutor the cowboy candidate. DONALD RUMSFELD! What does it say when a candidate turns for guidance to the architect of the greatest foreign policy debacle (remember Iraq?) since Vietnam? If the unrepentant Mr. Rumsfeld has Gov. Perrys ear (and apparently he does), that alone should disqualify him from serious consideration. Gov. Perry informed acolytes at Reliant Stadium last weekend that God does not belong to a political party. That may be so, but it seems as if Gov. Perry, Ms. Palin, Ms. Bachmann and others of that ilk expend enormous amounts of time and energy in an effort to drag an apolitical Almighty into their small-minded and unfeeling wing of the Republican Party.

This is long enough for liberals to feel safe making him their pet Republican. In their telling, Reagan raised the debt ceiling 18 times, passed tax increases, negotiated with the Soviets and then pretty much called it a day, adjourning to share a friendly after-hours drink with his bosom buddy, Democratic House Speaker Tip ONeill. These heterodoxies would get him ostracized in todays Republican party, proving that the GOP has been hijacked by dangerous extremists. Needless to say, thats what they called Reagan and his supporters back when the Gipper was alive and governing. Beyond their obvious opportunism, though, the newly minted Reagan nostalgics of the Left have a point: Reagan didnt get everything he wanted, and he had to compromise. This isnt a telling polemical point so much as a banality, a truism about any leader in a robust democratic society. Reagan inevitably had to make choices. Confronting a Democratic House, he could cut taxes and fund a defense buildup, or try to balance the budget. He had the right priorities; the economic growth he fostered and victory in the Cold War made the budget surpluses of the 1990s possible. The liberals hankering for Reagan is only possible when they abstract him from the context of his times and focus on his pragmatic tactics to the exclusion of his fixed ideological goals. Some conservatives make the opposite mistake by ignoring Reagans adept maneuvering, as if the only ingredient to his success was maintaining the right convictions. Both sides, then, tend to misunderstand the well-springs of Reagans achievement. Having grand goals is easy, if you dont care much about r eaching them. Cutting deals is easy, if you dont care much about where they take you. Knowing how to accommodate reality, when to give way and when to stand firm, while never deviating from your ultimate purposes is the stuff of statesmanship. When such statesmanship is in the service of transformative and noble ends, it deserves honor for all time. It is what defines a Reagan or a Lincoln. The Great Emancipators later career was partly devoted to the perilous work of slowly pushing the envelope of public opinion toward the abolition of slavery. The abolitionists hated his compromises and caution. He, in turn, hated their self-righteous purity. But both the abolitionist agitation and the shrewd political leadership were indispensable to changes unimaginable on the cusp of the Civil War. Lincoln called radicals in his party the unhandiest devils in the world to deal with but after all their faces are set Zionward. The Tea Partiers in Congress will have to make their own bows to statesmanship. If David Gergen is ever on CNN praising them for their supposed responsibility, they might as well not have come to Washington in the first place. They should never become house-broken. On the other hand, they cant let tactics become destructive to their ends, or oppose anything that doesnt meet a test of absolute purity. The road to Zion is always frustrating and winding. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Reagan the statesman richLOWRY Special to Florida Weekly President Barack Obama touted his debt-ceiling deal Tuesday, saying, We cant balance the budget on the backs of the very people who have borne the biggest brunt of this recession. Yet that is what he and his coterie of Wall Street advisers have done. In the affairs of nations, Alexander Hamilton wrote in January 1790, loans in times of public danger, especially from foreign war, are found an indispensable resource. It was his first report as secretary of the treasury to the new Congress of the United States. The country had borrowed to fight the Revolutionary War, and Hamilton proposed a system of public debt to pay those loans. The history of the U.S. national debt is inexorably tied to its many wars. The resolution this week of the so-called debt-ceiling crisis is no different. Not only did a compliant Congress agree to fund President George W. Bushs wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with emergency appropriations; they did so with borrowed money, raising the debt ceiling 10 times since 2001 without quibbling. So how did the Pentagon fare in the current budget battle? It looks like it did fine. Not to be confused with the soldiers and veterans who have fought these wars. This year is the 50th anniversary of (Dwight) Eisenhowers military-industrial complex speech, William Hartung of the Center for International Policy told me while the Senate assembled to vote on the debt-ceiling bill. Speaking of the late general turned Republican U.S. president, Hartung said: He talked about the need for a balanced economy, for a healthy population. Essentially, hes to the left of Barack Obama on these issues. Michael Hudson, president of the Institute for the Study of Long-Term Economic Trends, explained the history of the debt ceilings connection to war: It was put in in 1917 during World War I, and the idea was to prevent President Wilson from committing even more American troops and money to war. In every country of Europe England, France the parliamentary control over the budget was introduced to stop ambitious kings or rulers from waging wars. So the whole purpose was to limit a governments ability to run into debt for war, because that was the only reason that governments ran into debt. The Budget Control Act of 2011 assures drastic cuts to the U.S. social safety net. Congress will appoint a committee of 12, dubbed the Super Congress, evenly split between Republicans and Democrats, to identify $1.2 trillion in cuts by Thanksgiving. If the committee fails to meet that goal, sweeping, mandatory, across-the-board cuts are mandated. Social services would get cut, but so would the Pentagon. Or would it? The Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus opposed the bill. Congressional Black Caucus chair Emanuel Cleaver called it a sugarcoated Satan sandwich. For fiscal years 2012 and 2013, the discretionary funding approved is split between security and nonsecurity categories. Nonsecurity categories like food programs, housing, Medicare and Medicaid (the basis of any genuine national security) will most likely be cut. But the security budget will get hit equally hard, which Democrats suggest would be an incentive for Republicans to cooperate with the process. The security category includes Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the intelligence community (and) international affairs. This sets up a dynamic where hawks will be trying to cut as much as possible from the State Departments diplomatic corps, and foreign aid, in order to favor their patrons at the Pentagon and in the weapons industry. Hartung explained that the contractors, in addition to having the support of Speaker of the House John Boehner, had Buck McKeon, the head of the House Armed Services Committee, whose biggest contributor is Lockheed Martin, whos got big military facilities in his district, (and) Randy Forbes, whose district is near the Newport News Shipbuilding complex, which builds attack submarines and aircraft carriers. They used their influence to get people on the inside, their allies in the House, to push their agenda. President Obamas debt-ceiling deal is widely considered a historic defeat for progressives, a successful attack on the New Deal and Great Society achievements of the past century. Congresswoman Donna Edwards, D-Md., summed up the disappointment, in which half the Democrats in the House voted against their president, tweeting: Nada from million/billionaires; corp tax loopholes aplenty; only sacrifice from the poor/ middle class? Shared sacrifice, balance? Really? The Project on Government Oversight says of the Super Congress that the creation of the committee doesnt come with many requirements for transparency. Who will be the watchdog? With the 2012 election coming up, promising to be the most expensive ever, expect the committees deficit-reduction proposal, due by Thanksgiving and subject to an up-or-down vote, to have very little to give thanks for.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 Humor is the good-natured side of Truth. And truth is serious business. When it comes to American jokes in particular, we tend to hold a mirror up to nature (as that Brit, Shakespeare, once pointed out about drama), whether we intend to or not. Our jokes have always reflected our prejudices, our current attitudes about ourselves and the world, and our ambitions. Just as they have always revealed us at our best and our worst. Once, for example, the go-to jokes about lazy people tended to describe Mexicans, or those about criminals tended to describe blacks. Jokes about fools or the stupid pointed either to blondes or Poles (and before Poles, it was the Irish or the Italians or somebody else). Californians were the butt of spacey jokes, and regionally, Crackers came to be characterized as ignorant country rubes. All of it was true, but the Truth defined the joke tellers, not the joke tellees. Thats changed, mostly, although such jokes still float around but probably not in the pages of Florida Weekly. Americans, more than any other are razor-sharp self-critics, and our jokes reflect that power and talent as well. The first and most sacred amendment to the Constitution protects free speech, and that means the jokers among us can celebrate the world in their own sharply comic fashions without being banished, imprisoned or killed. Our jokes can be firecrackers ribald, brassy, bold, earthy or vulgar little explosions. They can also be political, social, sexual or psychological missiles. Almost always theyre merry, and not infrequently theyre unrestrained by etiquette or political correctness. Sometimes they dispel pretension. But before we analyze this any further, lets remember once again E.B. Whites famous biology lesson: Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it. So why did that chicken cross the road? Probably for the same reason youll turn the page. And when you do, enjoy. Roger Williams A man is stopped by the police at midnight and asked where hes going. Im on the way to listen to a lecture about the effects of alcohol and drug abuse on the human body. The policeman asks, Really? And whos going to give a lecture at this time of night? My wife. What do you call a parrot under an umbrella? Polly unsaturated. When I was young, I used to pray for a bike, then I realized that God doesnt work that way, so I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness. A scientist clones himself. But the clone grows to be foulmouthed. Nothing can stop him. In anger, the scientist pushes his creation out a window. Hes charged with making an obscene clone fall. What did the sick comic say in the hospital? Im here all weak. Question: What happens if you get scared half to death twice? Lying in bed, the 72-year-old man was seriously ill. Knowing that death would come soon, the man called his lawyer. I was thinking how you told me I could get a law degree if I had enough money to buy one. How much does it cost again? Its $65,000, replied the lawyer. But you are dying! Why would you want to have a law degree now? That is none of your concern, replied the dying man. I want you to get me that law certification! Within the week, the sick man had received his law degree. Of course his lawyer quickly came to his side, to make sure the bill would be paid in full. Within moments the old man began having trouble breathing and was gasping for air. It was clear he would not live much longer. The lawyer was going nuts not knowing why this man would want a law degree and pay so much for it when he knew the end was near. Please, please cant you tell me why you wanted this law degree so desperately before you died? Barely able to speak and on his last dying breath, the old man said, One less lawyer... Two snowmen are standing in a meadow. One snowman turns to the other and says, Do you smell carrots? A patient was at her doctors office after undergoing a complete physical exam. The doctor said, I have some very grave news for you. You only have six months to live. The patient asked, Oh doctor, what should I do? The doctor replied, Marry an accountant. Will that make me live longer? asked the patient. No, said the doctor, but it will SEEM longer. A guy asks his waiter how they prepare their chicken. The waiter says, Theres nothin special... we just flat out tell em theyre gonna die. A man and a friend are playing golf one day. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says: Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man. The man then replies: Yeah, well we were married 35 years. A woman was her lawyers office when she noticed an unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A long black hearse was followed by a second hearse, about 50 feet behind. Behind the second hearse was a single woman in black walking a pit bull dog on a leash. Behind her were 200 women walking single file. The onlooker had to know what this was about. She approached the woman walking the dog. I am so sorry for your loss, she said, and I know now is a bad time to disturb you. But Ive never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it? Well, that first hearse is for my husband, the lady in black replied. What happened to him? My dog attacked and killed him, the lady replied. The observer inquired further, Who is in the second hearse? His mistress, the lady said. She tried to help my husband, then the dog turned on her. There was a thoughtful moment of silence between the two. Can I borrow the dog? the woman asks. Get in line. Q: According to Hemingway, why did the chicken cross the road? A: To die, alone, in the rain. Charles Dickens walks into a bar and says, Please, sir, Id like a martini. The bartender asks, Olive or twist? Q: How do you make a Kleenex dance? A: Blow a little boogie into it. Q: Why cant seagulls fly by the bay? A: Because that would make them bagels. Though William Shakespeare wrote prolifically, he never knew which pencil to use for putting words on paper: 2b or not 2b? A doctor, a lawyer, and a manager were discussing the relative merits of having a wife or a mistress. The lawyer says, For sure a mistress is better. If you have a wife and want a divorce, it causes all sorts of legal problems. The doctor says, Its better to have a wife because the sense of security lowers your stress and is good for your health. The manager says, Youre both wrong. Its best to have both so that when the wife thinks youre with the mistress, and the mistress thinks youre with your wife you can go to the office and do some work. When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300C. The Russians used a pencil. A giraffe, a priest and a pro wrestler walk into a bar. Bartender says: What is this, a joke?JOKESFrom page 1 Do you smell carrots? ISSUE J J OKES 2011 2011

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 NEWS A9 A man in New York calls his mother in Florida. Man: Ma, how are you? Mom: Im fine. I havent eaten in 23 days, but Im fine. Man: You havent eaten in 23 days?! Whats wrong? Mom: I didnt want my mouth to be full in case you should call. Im on a whiskey diet. Ive lost three days already. A man was waiting for his wife to give birth. The doctor came and informed the dad that his son was born without a torso, arms or legs. The son was just a head! But the dad loved his son and raised him as well as he could. Eighteen years later, the son was old enough for his first drink. The dad took him to a bar, tearfully told him he was proud of him, and ordered the biggest, strongest drink for his boy. With all the bar patrons looking on curiously, the boy took his first sip of alcohol. Swoooop! A torso popped out! The bar was dead silent, then burst into a whoop of joy. The father, shocked, begged his son to drink again. The patrons chanted, Take another drink! Take another drink! The bartender shook his head in dismay. Swoooop! Two arms popped out! The bar went wild. The father, crying and wailing, begged his son to drink again. The patrons chanted, Take another drink! Take another drink! But the bartender ignored the whole affair. By this time, the boy was getting tipsy. With his new hands, he reached down, grabbed the drink, and guzzled the last of it. Swoooop! Two legs popped out. The bar was in chaos. The father wept with joy. The boy stood up on his new legs. He stumbled to the left. He stumbled to the right. Then he stumbled through the front door and into the street, where a truck ran him over. The bar fell silent. The father moaned with grief. The bartender merely sighed and said, He should have quit while he was a head. An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a shot of Jack Daniels. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke? The bar immediately falls absolutely silent. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, Given that you are blind, that you should know five things: 1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. 2. The bouncer is a blonde girl. 3. Im a 6-foot tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black belt in karate. 4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weightlifter. 5. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler. Now, think about it seriously, Cowboy. Do you still wanna tell that blonde joke? The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head and mutters, No, not if Im gonna have to explain it five times. Mahatma Gandhi was a peculiar person. He walked barefoot everywhere, to the point that his feet became quite thick and hard. He often went on hunger strikes, and even when he wasnt on a hunger strike, he did not eat much and became quite thin and frail. He also was a very spiritual person. Finally, because he didnt eat much and when he did his diet was peculiar, he developed very bad breath. He became known as a super-calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis. Q. What do you call a deadhead after he breaks up with his girlfriend? A. Homeless Q. How do you know a deadhead broke into your house? A. Hes still there. A man who led a debaucherous lifestyle dies and finds himself in the waiting room of Hell. A devilish imp comes out and starts to speak to him. You have been condemned to a life in Hell, I am your counselor. Do you have any questions? Ive always heard Hell to be such an awful place, what is it like? the mansaid. Well let me run you through a typical week. Do you like to drink? Why yes, I do. Well, Mondays are our alcohol days. We drink all day, and because youre dead, you wont get sick, die or wake up with a hangover. said the imp. Well, thats not so bad, I guess. How about food? Do you like to eat? Yes,replied the man. Tuesdays are our all-youcan-eat days. The finest cooks from around the underworld will make countless dishes. And because youre dead, you will not gain weight. Youre going to love Tuesdays. Have you ever taken any drugs? Ive been known to engage in that sort of activity. Youre going to love Wednesdays. All the drugs you can imagine taking all at once. You will be higher than you ever been. Plus, you cant overdose and you wont have a nasty withdrawl. This is sounding like a great deal. What are your opinions on gambling? Ive made my share of wagers in my day. Well Thursday is gambling day. Everyone gets a million dollars to gamble and if you lose it all, guess what? You get another million. You will absolutely love Thursdays. This place is going to be excellent. What about Friday? the man eagerly asked. Do you like gay sex? No, said the man,Never really appealed to me. Ooooh, well youre going to HATE Fridays. A guy is sitting on his sofa when he hears a knock at the door. He opens the door and sees a snail on the porch. He picks up the snail and throws it as far as he can. Three years later, theres a knock at the door. He opens it and sees the same snail. The snail says, What the hell was that all about? Two strings walk into a bar. One of them asks the bartender for a drink. The bartender says, we dont serve strings in here, get out. They walk out of the bar. One string turns to the other and says, I have an idea, and then takes the top of his friends head and ties it around his body and then messes up his hair. The friend then does the same to the other string. They walk back into the bar and the string asks for a drink again. The bartender says, Didnt I just tell you, we dont serve stings in here? The string says, Im afraid not. A turtle was walking down an alley in New York when he was mugged by a gang of snails. A police detective came to investigate and asked the turtle if he could explain what happened. The turtle looked at the detective with a confused look on his face and replied I dont know, it all happened so fast. Three guys, stranded on a desert island, find a magic lantern containing a genie, who grants them each one wish. The first guy wishes he was off the island and back home. The second guy wishes the same. The third guy says, Im lonely. I wish my friends were back here. A newlywed couple moves into their new house. One day the husband comes home from work and his wife says, Honey, you know, in the upstairs bathroom one of the pipes is leaking, could you fix it? The husband says, What do I look like, Mr. Plumber? A few days go by, and he comes home from work and his wife says, Honey, the car wont start. I think it needs a new battery. Could you change it for me? He says: What do I look like, Mr. Goodwrench? Another few days go by, and its raining pretty hard. The wife finds a leak in the roof. She says, Honey, theres a leak on the roof! Can you please fix it? He says, What do I look like, Bob Vila? The next day the husband comes home, and the roof is fixed. So is the plumbing. So is the car. He asks his wife what happened. Oh, I had a handyman come in and fix them, she says. Great! How much is that going to cost me? he snarls. Wife says: Nothing. He said hed do it for free if I either baked him a cake or slept with him. Uh, well, what kind of cake did you make? asks the husband. What do I look like? she says, Betty Crocker? Two campers are hiking in the woods when one is bitten on the rear end by a rattlesnake. Ill go into town for a doctor, the other says. He runs 10 miles to a small town and finds the towns only doctor, who is delivering a baby. I cant leave, the doctor says. But heres what to do. Take a knife, cut a little X where the bite is, suck out the poison and spit it on the ground. The guy ruins back to his friend, who is in agony. What did the doctor say? the victim asks. He says youre gonna die. A guy joins a monastery and takes a vow of silence: Hes allowed to say two words every seven years. After the first seven years, the elders bring him in and ask for his two words. Cold floors, he says. They nod and send him away. Seven more years pass. They bring him back in and ask for his two words. He clears his throats and says, Bad food. They nod and send him away. Seven more years pass. They bring him in for his two words. I quit, he says. Thats not surprising, the elders say. Youve done nothing but complain since you got here. A guy asks a lawyer what his fee is. I charge $50 for three questions, the lawyer says. Thats awfully steep, isnt it? the guy asks. Yes, the lawyer replies, Now whats your final question? Q: Why do ducks have webbed feet? A: To stamp out fires. Q: Why do elephants have flat feet?

Ultimately, it cost Florida and Floridians $13 billion. Thats what happened. What might happen at any time is another Charley, or something much more dangerous, with storm surge. Forecasters for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration last week predicted as many as 14 more named storms, 10 of them potentially hurricanes, before the season is out. Their confidence in those predictions is up from 65 to 85 percent. What will happen, however even if such a storm should arrive anywhere in Southwest Florida is nothing like what did happen in those fateful days seven years ago. But it could be rough, anyway. That would depend on storm surge, notes Wayne Sallad, director of Charlotte County Emergency Management. What many people dont realize is that what we went through was a relatively surgical strike. Charley had no storm surge. Now emergency management centers in Collier and Lee have made significant changes in the way they prepare, following the lead of Charlotte County, which is arguably the point-man model for how it should be done anywhere in the world. Looking northward at the impact of Charley that led everyone who thought hurricanes were just (emergency management business) to recognize they had a responsibility, too, notes Colliers emergency management coordinator, Rick Zyvoloski. Now, the preparation is community-wide. Collier itself has a brand new emergency services center headquartering emergency management itself, the Sheriff, dispatchers and the 911 program. In Charlotte, where emergency management officials from Texas, Alabama and Mississippi come to learn how its done right, Mr. Sallad describes three key components of the battle plan. We have a stronger community now because everything we did since the hurricanes of 2004 and is new code. We rebuilt, restructured, and re-roofed everything, and all the new constructions hotels, schools, churches, event centers all are built to the new Florida Unified Building Code. Thats one. The second new component is a fresh evacuation study and storm surge model completed just last December, which includes 7,000 collars on stop-sign posts at 7,000 intersections in Charlotte, color coded to let drivers know what zone theyre in (zones could have separate evacuation plans) and how close to the water they are. And the final new component, practiced by Lee and Collier as well, is the use of social media Facebook, Twitter and the like. Im thinking someday this is going to save some lives, Mr. Sallad says. Others agree. Everything we do is tremendously different now, but one of the biggest changes is the upstart of social media and information handling, explains Gerald Campbell, chief of planning for Lee County emergency management. We do things in the way of outreach now that we wouldnt have thought of in 2004. Following Charlottes lead, Lee County now has a Twitter site for use in storm emergencies, officials are putting in place a system of intersection signs identifying evacuation routes, and theyre developing an iPhone application that could save lives. This will tell people what evacuation zone their phone is located in, in real time. And if that area goes under an evacuation order, theyll be able to see the order instantly, Mr. Campbell says. In the old days, we did things just in case we taught people to be ready just in case. Now we focus on just in time. We still do the old school things, but now were giving you information when you need it, with the directions you need. At least thats the idea.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 A11 Dead mans partyFor years, many traditional funerals in Taiwan especially in rural areas or among working classes have included pop singers and bikinied dancers, supposedly to entertain the ghosts that will protect the deceased in the afterlife. According to a recent documentary by anthropologist Marc Moskowitz, some of the dancers until 20 years ago were strippers who did lap dances with funeral guests, until the government made such behavior illegal. Contemporary song-and-dance shows, like the traveling Electric Flower Car, supposedly appeal to lower gods who help cleanse the deceased of the more mundane vices such as gambling and prostitution (compared to the higher gods who focus on morality and righteousness). Cant possibly be true Californias state and local governments are rarely discussed these days without the pall of budget cuts looming, but apparently the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is safe because it is spending a reported $1.5 million to move a big rock in from Riverside, about 60 miles away. Its a 340-ton boulder that the museum intends to display above a sidewalk (Levitated Mass). The move will require a 200-foot-long trailer with 200 tires, with one semi-tractor pulling and one pushing, at night, maximum speed 8 mph. Tennessee State Rep. Julia Hurley apologized in July and said she would pay for the refinishing of her desk in the legislative chamber after it was revealed that she had carved her initials in it during a January session. It was like one in the morning on the last day of the session, she told WSMV-TV. I wasnt thinking straight. Rep. Hurley, 29, who has a daughter, 14, unseated a nine-term incumbent legislator in 2010 with a campaign that touted her time as a Hooters waitress. If I could make it at Hooters, she wrote in the restaurants magazine, I could make it anywhere. In June, the California Court of Appeals threw out the three counts of possession of child pornography for which Joseph Gerber had been convicted, even though what Mr. Gerber had done was paste face shots of his own 13-year-old daughter onto ordinary pornographic photos. The U.S. Supreme Court decided in 2002 that a conviction for making child pornography requires actual sexual abuse. (Mr. Gerber had also been convicted of supplying the daughter with drugs and the court ordered Mr. Gerber resentenced.)

Little Jims chances for acquittal are slim under News of the Weirds insightful theory of criminal culpability known as the Three First Names hypothesis. In June in the Houston suburb of Alvin, Texas, a petite, 42-year-old Walmart customer came across three men running out of the store carrying shoplifted beer. She decided that it was up to her to take a stand because, as she said later, she was sick of the lawlessness. The woman (whose name, coincidentally, is Monique Lawless) chased the men, climbed onto the hood of their getaway car, even jumping up and down on it, to delay their escape. The three were eventually arrested: Sylvester Andre Thompson and his brothers S ylvester Durlentren Thompson and Sylvester Primitivo Thompson. Unclear on the concept Georges Marciano, co-founder of the clothing company Guess? Inc. and ostensibly in no trouble with IRS, nonetheless demanded in 2009 that the agency audit him over the previous several years. The IRS turned him down, and he sued the agency in federal court in Washington, D.C., but in July, a judge rejected the case, declaring that federal law and the U.S. Constitution do not give anyone a right to demand that IRS collect more taxes from them. (Marciano perhaps hoped for the IRS to uncover cheating by his former employees and accountants, whom he thought were stealing from him. Paying higher taxes might have been worth it if the agency had made it easier for him to sue any cheaters.) A Singaporean army draftee caused a public stir in March when he was photographed by a visitor as he underwent physical training in army fatigues but with his maid following behind him carrying his backpack on her shoulders. (Army officials told reporters the draftee had since been counsel(ed).) In May, following near-record floods in fields south of Montreal, Quebec, farmer Martin Reid made sure to apply for his fishing license because he had learned the hard way that when his land gets flooded, he cannot remove the fish washed onto it unless he is a licensed fisherman. After flooding in 1993, Mr. Reid and his father failed to secure a license and were fined $1,000. A second offense brings a fine of $100,000.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA22 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 HEALTHY LIVINGWith 36,041 inpatients and 106,082 outpatients to serve each year, we sometimes lose sight of the many innovative and compassionate activities occurring daily in the halls of NCH. For example: An incidental finding of parasitic ring forms in a routine blood smear caused medical laboratory technologist Janet Keddell to raise suspicion for blood parasites. She presented the smear to microbiology laboratory manager Robin Williams, who identified it as the blood parasite Babesia, which can infect humans from a tick bite. Babesiosis is also known as Nantucket disease. How can a rare New England parasite be discovered by a Florida clinical laboratory? The answer is that our NCH laboratorians have years of experience in recognizing unusual or atypical parasites and pathogens that are present in our diverse community of immigrants, vacationers and well-traveled folks. The recent Babesia case is just one example of how our laboratorians, physicians and nurses bring travel and clinical history together with diagnostic findings to confirm a disease process. Another unsung-yet-critical area is interventional radiology. Dr. Paul Dorio, an interventional radiologist, writes: We see the sickest patients on up to the relatively healthy outpatients here in the interventional radiology suite. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year and provide rapid, compassionate and highly-skilled care. One example of this units essential role in the care process is the call Dr. Dorio received from a Fort Myers gastroenterologist, asking if he could send five patients to NCH for TIPS work. The Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt procedure is a high-end, technically challenging and life-saving measure typically performed to stop variceal bleeding risk or to diminish refractory ascites in cirrhotic patients. NCH could be counted on to complete the TIPS procedure, just one of the many sophisticated medical procedures that our interventional radiologists perform routinely. Were proud of them and the entire subspecialized radiology group, especially in a day where more specialists are moving exclusively to the outpatient setting. Kristin Miller, R.N., nurse manager and project coordinator for our chest pain center, explained NCHs plans to become accredited through the Society of Chest Pain Centers, an international, nonprofit organization that assist facilities to adapt best practices and implement new ideas to ensure the highest quality of care for patients suffering acute coronary syndrome (heart disease due to hardening of the arteries). Our success over the last 12 month in consistently performing at 100 percent for all acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) core measures and door-to-balloon in less than 90 minutes underscores our quality. Finally, Laura Rosen, community relations manager for our Community Blood Center, received the following from a grateful blood recipient: I went to OPIS (Outpatient Infusion Services) weak and in a wheelchair. I walked out on my own. Thank you is really too small for the precious gift I received two units of someones blood. I hope to be cancer-free for a year, so that I can give back myself. We all should be willing to donate blood. And everyone at NCH should be thankful for and proud of what goes on here each day things that might not receive fanfare, but that often save lives and serve so well the community we love. Proud to save lives and serve the community, 24/7TO YOUR HEALTH allenWEISS allen.weiss@nchmd.org Florida UntamedHospital exhibit highlights the wild side of SWFLP atients, staff and visitors at Physicians Regional-Pine Ridge are enjoying Florida Untamed, a new exhibit of photographs and carvings organized by the Naples Art Association. More than 30 works by Neapolitans John Brady, Dennis Goodman and Bill Robinson represent the wild side of Southwest Florida. The artists have encountered black bears, poisonous snakes, pythons, gators and millions of mosquitoes all in search of the perfect subject matter in its natural habitat. They have spent countless hours of observation and interaction in order to give viewers a glimpse at wildlife in its natural setting. Mr. Brady fondly recalls getting his first camera as a gift from his grandmother when he was 12 years old. She told him he was a descendant of Matthew Brady, one of the most celebrated 19th century American photographers best known for his Civil War images. This gift and family inspiration started as a creative pastime that years later turned into a second career. Today, he hikes or travels by a Boston Whaler and gheenoe into the Everglades, Ten Thousand Islands and Big Cypress National Preserve. After spending hours to reach his subject matter, he may spend many more hours waiting for the ideal light and wind conditions. My photography is my escape, Mr. Brady says. Some people enjoy books, I enjoy being in the wilderness with my camera. Everything slows down and your senses are heightened. Mr. Goodman, also a photographer, affectionately describes his work as a hunt for treasure. Its a spiritual expedition to see nature untouched, he says. He, too, spends hours looking for the perfect sunrise, quiet winds, ideal water reflections and perfect shadows. He has braved mosquitoes and deer flies to track down pop ash and pond apple trees in the wettest sloughs of the Everglades for that rare encounter of a ghost orchid in bloom. He has captured panthers, eagles and other elusive animals on film and takes great pride in documenting them to share with others for the purposes of education and preservation. Mr. Robinson developed his love for wood carving STRAIGHT TALK SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYParkinsons group has lunch plans, various programsThe Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida hosts the August Lunch Bunch beginning at noon Wednesday, Aug. 17, at the Olive Garden, 1565 Fifth Ave. S.

HEALTHFrom page 22 Simple steps can save babies from heatstrokeAs we move into the height of the summer, the Cuddlebugs program offers tips for parents and guardians to ensure infant and toddlers are protected from heatstroke. First and foremost, never leave your child in a car unattended. Always lock your car doors and secure the keys when youre home. This will reduce the chance of a child sneaking into the vehicle without your knowledge. Get into the habit of placing your purse or wallet in the backseat next to your child. This will force you to look back at your child before getting out. When a child is missing, check your vehicle and trunk immediately. Be sure to unload your children before the groceries. The ice cream will always refreeze.Symptoms to watch forHow can you tell your baby is experiencing heatstroke? Symptoms in infants include a temperature of 103 degrees Fahrenheit or higher but no sweating; hot, red, dry skin; rapid pulse; restlessness and irritability; vomiting; lethargy; rapid, shallow breathing; and unconsciousness.If it happensWhat do you do if your baby develops heatstroke? Time is of the essence. You must bring your babys internal temperature down as quickly as possible. First, call 911. Then, undress your baby completely and lay her down in a cool area. If youre outside, find some shade. But if at all possible, move your child into a cool room. While waiting for the ambulance, sponge your infants body with a washcloth or a rag thats been dipped in cool water. Fan your baby with either an electric fan or simply your hand or a magazine. Speak reassuringly to your baby and do not give them anything to drink. And though you may be tempted to give your baby acetaminophen, it wont lower a temperature caused by heatstroke.About CuddleBugs CuddleBugs is a free program designed to provide answers to new and expectant moms from the earliest stages of pregnancy through post-delivery including guidance for newborn care. For more information, visit www.CuddleBugsBaby.com. >>Myth or fact: Your child is safe from heat stroke if you leave the windows cracked for only a few minutes. This is a myth. The temperature inside a car can quickly rise to 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit on a typical summer day. in the know e i g ht o f eb u g s r ents f ant te d v er n atof ll t i t y r o W a m b u l infant s cl ot h o dipped in bbithit as young teen, creating duck and fish decoys using a small hatchet and kitchen knife along with leftover 2-by-4s.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 NEWS A25 The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust are offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for illegally killing a black bear in Collier County. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, on July 22 the body of a dead black bear was found wrapped in a tarp at the end of 12th Avenue N.E. and Desoto Boulevard in the Golden Gate Estates area. The bear appeared to have a gunshot wound to the body. Black bears are a threatened species in Florida. Killing one is a third-degree felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and fines up to $5,000. Wildlife officials estimate that for every wild animal killed legally tens of millions of animals per year another is killed illegally. Every year, thousands of poachers are arrested nationwide; however, it is estimated that only 1 percent to 5 percent of poached animals come to the attention of law enforcement. Anyone with information about the recent incident in Collier County should call the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at (888) 4043922. Callers can remain anonymous. Reward offered in Golden Gate black bear killing Volunteers and adoptable animals from Brookes Legacy Animal Rescue will be at Petco, 6424 Naples Blvd., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 13-14.

Our golden retriever, Shakira, is lovingly known as She-Crazy for her high levels of energy. Youd think that since we live on a ranch, shed keep herself exercised, but thats not the case at all. Keeping her healthy falls to me, not only as a veterinarian, of course, but also as the person who keeps the tennis balls flying. For this, I use a Chuckit!, a ball-flinger that has to be one of the best pet care inventions ever. With the Chuckit!, I can exhaust She-Crazy in short order without giving myself a sore throwing arm. While fetch is a great way to exercise many dogs, not all dogs are that interested in retrieving. For those dogs, a long walk, a trip to the dog park for a meet-up with play buddies, a few miles of biking or a good swim is just the ticket. If time is a problem, you can fill the exercise gap with doggie day care, a dog-walker or even dog-hikers, who take small groups of dogs out of the city for long hikes. If these businesses dont exist in your area, you might try asking around to see if you can get another dog lover to take your dog out with hers, or a neighbor kid to walk or run your dog. Just dont neglect your dogs need to move: Staying fit is key to a happy, healthy dog! BY DR. MARTY BECKER _______________________________Special to Florida WeeklyAlmost all dogs needs more exercise than they getwill play with one another, most will not do so enough to cut into the exercise deficit. Which means, of course, you now have two dogs who need more time and attention, not just one. Some dogs need more exercise than most people are willing to give them. These guys are often tagged as hyper, and you can find a lot of them in the shelters, and thats a shame, since more exercise would have made them much easier to live with and time would have settled them down as well. The truth is that you can settle a All dogs need exercise. All of them. The amount of exercise varies by the type of dog, the shape, the size and the original purpose of the breed or breeds that lurk in the genetic code of a particular dog, but all dogs need something to do. Bored dogs can be destructive, and you wouldnt believe all the things we veterinarians have surgically removed from the insides of dogs who didnt have anything better to do than eat a doll, a remote control, rocks or a hamper full of dirty underwear. And its not just boredom thats the problem. Sedentary dogs can become overweight, which leads to all kinds of health problems. If you want to be a good dog owner, youll have to have your dogs heart pumping at an aerobic rate on a regular basis. (And watch the portion sizes, too!) Dont think that getting another dog will automatically solve the problem. While some dogs (typically young ones) PET TALES Move it!

Bob Dylan Whos peekin out from under a stairway, calling a name that lighter than air? Whos bending down to give me a rainbow? Everyone knows its Windy.... And Windy has stormy eyes that flash at the sound of lies. And Windy has wings to fly above the clouds. The Association Blow away, Dandelion. Rolling StonesThe compass rose has appeared on charts and maps to indicate direction since the 1300s. But before the pragmatic and grounded sensible compass rose, the wind-rose was used to orient. In this schema, it was not by the ground that location was established. Rather, the wind-rose groundlessly indicated direction via the winds. In the classical world, no distinction was drawn between the directions and the winds coming from them. Winds were named for the directions from which they came. And there was no standardization, since different regions had different winds coming from different directions. Homer is credited with naming the winds, personifying them, giving them genealogies, and telling their stories. The Tower of Winds built in Athens in 100 BCE, still intact, carved the names of the winds into stone. Often we say it and mean it: Everything we know was given to us by the Greeks. So, what do you know: We have tried to settle it like this. The logorrhea of all the stories, our life of periphrases, our movement of windswept scenarios: We feel that which we cannot see, this and that which moves us in and out. We cannot bear the beauty, the raw ecstasy, the impossibility of capture. So our flatulent attempt to conquer speaks and proceeds us. Where is the wind? It is closer than close. It is moving in the breathing that sustains life. Moving through ceaselessly, unfathomably. Speaking unutterabl y in kaleidoscopic unrepeatable sensation, not findable. We can gather the outside wind into breath to send dandelion seeds sailing. Or we can watch the rolling in of clouds and fog. Or we can be blown away. But even the earth is formed by the winds. The formation of earth by wind is known as the Aeolian processes, named for Aeolus, the ruler of the winds in Greek mythology. There are three wind rulers named Aelous, and even the ancient Greeks could not tell them apart. An example of Aeolian process is the yardang. These are streamlined hills that look like the hulls of ships. It is believed that the Great Sphinx of Giza is a modified yardang. And she, born of the wind, is another blustery riddle crafter. For many years, the riddle answer was concealed. It has since been revealed, solved by Odysseus. Odysseus answered that the creature who goes about on four legs in the morning, two at noon, and three late in the day is human, as infant, adult and elderly with cane. But there is another riddle that often claims to originate with the wind-swept Sphinx: Who are the two sisters who give birth to each other? The answer is day and night, both feminine words in Greek. And both rolling in on windy wings. But whatever the riddle, the Sphinx was bested and leapt to her death. When Jean Cocteau told the story, the Sphinx gave Odysseus the answer so he would fall in love with her. He didnt. So she rode the wind into the sky. Airplanes take off best when pointed into the wind. Some things never change. At least not the stories we tell about them.

B8-9 INSIDEAsk the FoolReader seeks information about colleges and financial aid. B6 NewsmakersSee whos making the news in local real estate. B11 A MAJOR OVERHAUL IN HOW FLORIDA handles unemployment compensation took effect on Aug. 1, and no one yet can say whether the sweeping changes will prove to be boon or boondoggle. One thing seems certain, however: The balance has shifted decidedly in favor of the state and its businesses at the expense of the unemployed, who will find it harder to file for unemployment compensation and face new mandates that could lead to more denial of benefits. Gov. Rick Scott an ardent proponent of the new legislation signed HB 75005 into law last June. Florida already had one of the lowest unemployment compensation rates it tops out at $275 a week but the new law will also reduce the maximum amount of state benefits the unemployed can receive. The maximum amount of weeks a recipient can draw unemployment has been slashed from 26 weeks to 23, which is the lowest in the United States. Other provisions of the law make it more onerous for laid-off workers to file for unemployment insurance. No longer can applicants file by telephone. All applications must be filed online. Claimants must also contact five potential employers each week and relay that information online also. Furthermore, applicants must complete an online skills review to be eligible. The problem is that many of the unemployed do not have access either to a computer or the Internet, meaning they must go to a library, a job training center or rely on a friend to tap into theObviously, anything that makes it more difficult to collect (benefits) can have an impact. People could get behind on their utilities, have trouble buying food ... We really dont know what will be the result. Louise Hawthorne, United Way of Lee CountyBY BILL CORNWELLbcornwell@ oridaweekly.com SEE CRACKDOWN, B7 Unemployment crackdownFiling for jobless claims just got harderSCOTT Looking for a job? Youre not alone. With unemployment at a soaring rate of 9.2 percent according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, many job hunters are turning to online job boards to post their resume and search for work. The Better Business Bureau warns job seekers to proceed with caution before sharing their personal qualifications and inquiring about jobs found online. As much as the Internet has made searching for jobs easier, it also provides an opportunity for ID thieves to take advantage of eager and unsuspecting job seekers. Craigslist, Monster.com, Careerbuilder.com and now even Facebook are all breeding grounds for unethical activity. Before posting your resume to a career site or inquiring about a job, make sure you know with whom you are dealing, advises Karen Nalven, president of BBB serving west Florida. The organization advises job hunters to watch out for these red flags: Employer e-mails are rife with grammatical and spelling errors. Most online fraud is perpetrated by individuals outside the U.S. Their first language usually isnt English, and this is often evident in their poor grasp of the language. E-mails purporting to be from job posting websites claiming theres a problem with a job hunters account. Phishing e-mails like this are designed to convince readers to click a link within the message to fix the issue. But the link actually takes them to a website that will install malware or viruses on their computer. An employer asks for extensive personal information such as Social Security or bank account numbers. Some job seekers have been surprised to learn theyve gotten a job without having to do a single interview. Suspicions were raised, however, when the employer then asked for per sonal information in order to fill out the necessary paperwork. Regardless of the reason or excuse given by the employer, a job applicant should never give out his or her SocialID thieves can hide in online job offersSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY SEE THIEVES, B7

MONEY & INVESTINGVolatile times call for smart strategiesWhat a week that was. For many investors, TGIF had significant meaning as of 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5. A complete recap of the various investment markets movements would require more space than this column allows. A simplistic recap as of the close last week might be as follows: the flight into the Swiss franc and the Japanese yen (and out of the dollar vis-a vis these currencies) continues; the foreign equity markets also continued in their decline; the U.S. equity markets had wide intraday swings and the S&P close on Aug. 5 at 1,198 represents a decline of 12.5 percent from 1,367 this past May; gold hit a new high of $1,683; crude oil closed Friday at $87 but traded down to $83 during the week from the 2011 high (not the all-time high) of $115; and U.S. government bond prices held steady. Now that is far from everything but it paints something of a broad financial market landscape. Investors want to know what to do. They want to know if we will have more of the same. Specifically, will U.S. equities continue to be so volatile? Any answer to that is merely opinion, but my opinion is yes. There will be more of the same since the fundamental, critical problems will take years to resolve and the resolutions might be unfavorable to the U.S. dollar and markets. Multiple sovereign debt defaults/restructurings for multiple countries, continued U.S. budget deficits in the context of $14 trillion existing U.S. federal debt; high unemployment and a continued job shift to China, India (and beyond); and, possibly most importantly, the inability of Washingtons leaders to craft meaningful, long-term solutions and find ways to pay for them. All this will continue. So unless you plan to hide under a rock, you will have some degree of investment exposure to market volatility. What is an investor to do? Know more? To know more, you might have to: figure out the all the details of the many critical problems facing the U.S., Europe and the other countries and use that knowledge to come to a summary conclusion. Its a daunting task. Then what do you do with the information? Maybe pick a stellar investment or the single asset class that will outperform; possibly hide all assets in cash; maybe be confused; and the list goes on. I do not think that these investment approaches are optimal for most investors. Before you assume active portfolio management, consider that most mutual fund portfolio managers underperform their relevant market. The percentage of managers underperforming their index after all fees for the five years ended Dec. 31, 2010, was: S&P 50057 percent; Wilshire U.S. Large, 62 percent; MSCI 750, 65 percent. As for bonds, the results were worse. (Source: Vanguard, The Case for Indexing, February 2011). And dont forget that the critical element in portfolio performance is asset class allocation. After considering the market moves of the past week, maybe other questions are relevant. What investment or trading approaches have the potential (i.e. the capacity, but not a certainty) to benefit from volatility? What does a truly diversified portfolio look like? Is there overexposure to the U.S. dollar? Is the portfolio totally dependent on fundamental analysis (people thinking), excluding any and all technical analysis and/or computerized trading? Is the portfolio long only, excluding short positions? Are cash/money management rules used? Not addressing these issues might well expose you to risks that can be mitigated. Here are some ideas: 1. Create a truly diversified portfolio that includes assets not correlated to U.S. equities and U.S. bonds. These alternative assets, while expected (not guaranteed) to deliver positive returns, have historically not moved in tandem with U.S. bonds or U.S. equities. A portfolio of a hundred equities does not protect you from a decline in overall portfolio value because equities are highly correlated with each other. When added to a portfolio of traditional assets, these alternatives might actually increase return and decrease risk. In the case of commodities, studies by Harvard professor Dr. Lintner and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange have confirmed that by adding a diversified portfolio of commodities to a traditional stock and bond portfolio, risk was actually lowered while overall profitability rose. 2. Hold more than just one currency and maybe the currency is gold. The dollar index (DXY) has fallen 54 percent since February 1985. Might it turn around? Anything is possible. Remember that owning foreign equities is not the same as owning the foreign currencies; a currency can appreciate while its equity market is falling. 3. Allocate a portion of your portfolio to be traded using computerized, technical systems as used by hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds and institutions. Systems are not dictated by human emotions of fear or greed. Sometimes they trade 23.5 hours/7 days a week and they often utilize strict money management techniques to cut losses and let profits run. They frequently go both long and short; and some systems do all of the aforementioned and more. 4. Consult your adviser to determine suitability and several advisers for breadth of counsel and, instead of solely using investment generalists, consider the professional services of experts in the various asset classes. There is a substantial risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options and off-exchange foreign currency products. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 THE MOTLEY FOOL According to a Birinyi Associates statistic cited in Fortune magazine, U.S. companies are on track to make 2011 the thirdbiggest stock-buyback year ever, with $273 billion worth announced through midJune. Buybacks can be good or not.Heres how they work: When a company buys back stock, it typically does so on the open market it doesnt buy your shares, unless you happen to be selling them. You keep your shares. In theory, the more shares a company buys and retires, the better off shareholders are. Imagine that the Whoa Nellie Brake Co. (ticker: HALTT) has 100 shares outstanding. If you own 25 of them, you own 25 percent of the company. If the company buys back 50 of its own shares, then 50 shares will remain. Youll still own your 25 shares, though, so you now own 50 percent of the company.Thats extreme, but it demonstrates how your portion of a companys earnings grows as more shares are bought back. If Whoa Nellie earned $100 in net income, The Basics of Buybacks 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. Very Risky Q Is it safe to invest in commodities? S.G., Worcester, Mass.A According to The Wall Street Journal Interactive Editions Guide to Online Investing, Investing in commodities and financial futures is about as extreme as you can get on the risk scale. Global commodity exchanges facilitate trading in all kinds of things, such as interest rates, currencies, metals, crude oil, gasoline, cotton, lumber, sugar, coffee, wheat and corn. Investors are drawn to commodities because of the great leverage available. You can often buy items by paying only about 10 percent of their value. In an extreme example, if you buy $50,000 of pork bellies for $5,000 and they double in value, youve made a lot of money by investing just a little. Of course, if they fall in value, you can lose your entire invested amount and then some!You can lose much more than you invest with commodities and futures. Smart people have lost a lot of money in them, and most investors should steer clear.Q What are good online sources of information on colleges and financial aid? K.B., Modesto, Calif.A The U.S. Department of Education offers a wealth of information on government student aid programs at www.ed.gov and www.studentaid. ed.gov. Read the excellent handbook at: http://studentaid.ed.gov/ students/publications/student_guide/index.html. The www.finaid.org website has the scoop on everything from scholarships to alerts on popular financial aid scams. (Type scam into the search box.)

Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrichthat would be $1 EPS (earnings per share), pre-buyback. After the buyback, though, the firm would still have the same earnings, but those earnings would be spread over just 50 shares so the EPS would go up to $2. The price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, based partly on EPS, would fall, and each share potentially would be worth more.Stock buybacks can be better for shareholders than dividends. Remember that companies pay taxes on the income they earn. When they then pay out any dividends to you, you get taxed. So that income is taxed twice hardly very efficient. By buying back shares, a company is still rewarding shareholders, but its doing so in a way that does not trigger taxable events. Buybacks are wonderful when a stock is undervalued, because the company will get more shares for its money. Plenty of companies have bought back overvalued shares, though, destroying value. Make sure your companies earnings arent increasing solely because theyre buying boatloads of shares. Look for increasing earnings and revenue, too. On the urgent advice of a very clever friend, I bought $5,000 of an obscure British biotech company at 20 pence per share. The shares rose to 64 pence, and then dropped suddenly to 3 pence. It turned out that my clever friend had inside information and knew of a failed clinical trial at the company, but couldnt tell me. Nor did he dare sell his own shares. The stock has recovered to 9 pence per share. Im holding on, but the future for the company looks bleak. M.B., onlineThe Fool Responds: Biotechs can be tricky, as much of their value is tied to drugs or treatments still in development that might or might not end up approved and profitable. Your friend was smart and ethical to play by the rules and not divulge or act on inside info, even though you both lost money. Since it appears you have more than $2,000 left, youd do well to move that money into a better investment, one with a non-bleak future. Park your money in your best ideas, not so-so ones. The Motley Fool TakeWith oil prices so steep, many investors interested in transportation are turning from the trucking industry to railroads, which are more energy-efficient. Surprisingly, the biggest factor driving railroad growth right now is the resurgence of the auto industry. According to Progressive Railroading, as of April 30, auto carloads were up 9.6 percent over the same time last year. Revenue from shipping cars varies, but it usually makes up about 7 percent of the bottom line for major railroads. CSX, for example, derives about 8 percent of its annual revenue from handling automobiles, touching close to one out of every three autos produced in the United States.Railroads Come Back Name That CompanyI sold my first tickets to an Electric Light Orchestra concert in 1977.

Volks wagen recently opened a $1 billion plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., with the intention of shipping 85 percent of the automobiles it produces by rail. CSX and Norfolk Southern are positioned to benefit from that.Meanwhile, after Union Pacific watched its automobile loads shrink 50 percent in 2009, it instituted a series of changes, including developing a special adjustable automotive railcar that can hold various sizes of vehicles. Auto traffic climbed 37 percent in 2010, and now Union Pacific is marketing the train car to other railroad companies.If cars sell well in the United States, railroads will reap the benefits.

New Clients Receive$25 OFFCall for Details AFFORDABLE RATES CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS Internet. A recent survey found that at least 25 percent of Floridians are without Internet access. Man, I dont know what Im gonna do, says Dillard Pierce, an out-of-work construction worker who on a recent day endured a long wait for a computer at the Fort Myers public library. Im gonna spend more time trying to figure out how to get online than I will actually looking for a job.Business savingsRobby Cunningham of the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation in Tallahassee says the move to computer filing will save the state $4.7 million annually. It is a simple and straightforward system that should be easier than using the telephone, he says. Computers are available at one-stop career centers, public libraries and other locations. Mr. Cunningham also notes that the new legislation will save employers more than $50 an employee in unemployment insurance costs. This will result in a savings of about $103 million to businesses in the state, he says. This could easily spur more hiring and more economic growth. Some economists, however, believe that tinkering with unemployment insurance during an economic downturn is counterproductive. A study conducted in 2009 found that for every dollar paid out in unemployment compensation, $1.63 was pumped back into the economy. A U.S. Labor Department study last year concluded that each dollar of unemployment compensation yielded a two-dollar return. In essence, some economists have characterized unemployment benefits as one of the most effective means of stimulating a sluggish economy. Additionally, fewer people on unemployment could result in a greater strain on social service agencies. Obviously, anything that makes it more difficult to collect (benefits) can have an impact, says Louise Hawthorne of the United Way of Lee County. People could get behind on their utilities, have trouble buying food. There could be increased demand for food stamps. We really dont know what will be the result. It is too early.Regulating behaviorOne of the more controversial provisions of the new legislation allows employers to deny benefits to employees who are dismissed for misconduct away from the workplace. Previously, only misconduct committed within the workplace was deemed as a sufficient reason for denial. This could have wide-ranging application in the realm of social media, says Sandie Peterson, who works as a human resources consultant in Fort Myers and Naples and is president of the Human Resources Management Association. If an employee posts an embarrassing picture or makes a derogatory comment about his employer on Facebook and is dismissed, would that be reason enough to deny unemployment compensation? These are things that will have to be addressed in a companys policy manual, says Ms. Peterson. But the truth is that a policy manual cant cover every possible scenario. Overall, Ms. Peterson says the tougher restrictions and lower costs may encourage more employers to hire workers as full-time employees. This may ease the fear barrier somewhat in that regard, she says. Libby Anderson, another human resources expert, is somewhat wary about the new law. I am very curious to see how this is going to play out, she says. I think this is going to be a hassle for everybody, she continues. It strikes me as another great idea that nobody thought through all the moving parts. For one thing, Ms. Anderson says, consistency will be key. Rules must apply across the board. Should a mailroom employee get drunk and create an embarrassing display away from work, then the same standard must apply to a CEO who gets soused and out of control at the country club. And how are you going to define what constitutes misconduct away from the workplace? she notes. There will have to be a clear policy about off-thejob behavior, and that policy will have to apply to everyone, top to bottom. Ms. Anderson agrees with Ms. Peterson that social media present vexing possibilities. Doesnt an employee have the right to free speech away from work? she says. These are not only policy questions, they are civil rights concerns. If this is going to work at all, the policy must be clear, put in writing and communicated widely, which would include what the consequences are for violating the policy, she says. This is a very slippery slope, she adds. It is a little like Big Brother watching all the time.When the going is toughTo job-seeker Dillard Pierces way of thinking, the new rules and regulations were set forth with only one goal in mind. They want to make it as hard as possible to collect unemployment, and they want to keep as many people off the rolls as possible, he says. OK, I understand that, and if thats the position they want to take, thats fine, although they apparently dont have a clue as to how to create jobs, which would really bring down claims. But I hope these guys understand that when you push a persons back to the wall, they get desperate, and desperate people do desperate things. The unemployment rate in Charlotte County stands at 11.1 percent. It is 11.3 percent in Collier County and 11.6 percent in Lee County, which amounts to 55,000 people without work in Southwest Florida. That is a lot of desperation. CRACKDOWNFrom page 1 Security or bank account numbers over the phone or e-mail. An employer asks for money upfront. Aside from paying for a uniform, it is rarely advisable for an applicant to pay upfront fees or make a required purchase to get a job. Most recently, the BBB of Metropolitan Dallas uncovered a scam where job hunters were told they had to pay $64.50 for a background check before they could be considered for a cleaning job. Predictably, after paying for the background check, the job seeker never heard from the company again. The salary and benefits offered seem too good to be true. The adage holds true for job offers: If the deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Phony employers might brag about exceptionally high salary potential and excellent benefits for little experience in order to lure unsuspecting job hunters into their scheme. The job requires the employee to wire money through Western Union or MoneyGram. Many phony jobs require the prospective employee to cash a check sent by the company through the mail and then wire a portion of the money on to another entity. Reasons given for this requirement vary from offer to offer. Whatever the reason, the check might clear the employees bank account but will eventually turn out to be a fake and the employee is out the money he or she wired back to the phony employer. The Better Business Bureau is a nonprofit organization that sets and upholds high standards for fair and honest business behavior. Every year, more than 65 million consumers rely on BBB Reliability Reports and BBB Wise Giving Reports to help them find trustworthy businesses and charities across North America.

The annual ARTScool exhibition kicks off with a preview reception from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14, at the art center, where it will remain on display through Aug. 26. Admission to the reception and exhibition is free, and the public is invited to attend. Nearly 1,000 students attended ARTScool and took part in nearly 50 different class offerings taught by professional art teachers and certified instructors. Each class was designed to teach an underlying lesson of art history, geography and/or math. Children learned new skills and techniques and experimented with new mediums such as batik, clay, and tie-dye. The exhibition showcases 2D and 3D work and includes painted masks, paper mache sculptures, pencil drawings, acrylic paintings, jewelry and more. I am amazed with the quality and variety of work produced by our ARTScool students, says Callie Spilane, director of education for the Naples Art Association. Not only did I see big smiles each day leaving our classrooms, I also saw tremendous creativity, expression and individualism. The NAA awarded more than 30 scholarships to students from low-income families so that they could attend ARTScool. Funds for the scholarships were provided by individual donors.

Of course, theyre not as enthralled with Swedish punctuation as they are with what the double dots are punctuating: books stuffed full with Swedish crimes, punk girls who are techno wonders, and plenty of gratuitous sex, both consensual and abusive. Stieg Larssons Millennium trilogy, starting with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, was a runaway best-seller not only in Sweden, but in the U.S. as well. And now the inevitable is happening: Publishers are praying lightning will strike twice. Mr. Larsson died in 2004 but his books have been so successful, everyone in the business now hopes to sign the next Stieg Larsson. Those who already have one or more Swedish mystery writers in their stable of authors are positioning them that way, or as novelists who write in the style of Stieg Larsson.

Afterward, my friend looked pleased. I hoped for some comment on the awkwardness of my position, perhaps even an apology. That was fun, she said and took back her shopping bags. As we walked together to the Metro station, I turned over the photography session in my mind, searching for the kernel of humiliation, trying to divine what had been so traumatic. But I lost the thread of the thought as we boarded the train. It came back to me this week as I poured over her wedding photos. There are few positions in life more humiliating than being the unchosen friend, whether its for a photo shoot or cuddling on the couch. Author Wayne Koestenbaum has writt en a ne w book, Humiliation, and hes making the rounds to promote his literary exploration of the wilds of personal shame. On a recent weekday he spoke with NPRs Talk of the Nation about the themes of the book while the host invited listeners to share their own humiliating experiences. A 29-year-old caller, Jacqueline, jumped on the opportunity. In high school I had a boyfriend, she said. I was at his house one evening with one of my best friends sitting on the couch. The relationship with her boyfriend was rocky, Jacqueline explained, and the two had fought earlier in the day. When he asked her to come cuddle with him, she refused. The boyfriend then turned to her best friend. Will you cuddle with me? he said. The best friend gamely agreed. Jacqueline stood to leave. Lets go, she said to her friend. The friend wouldnt budge. Ill stay here, she said. She snuggled down into the couch with the boyfriend. Years later, Jacqueline is still hung up on that adolescent moment. Her story, like Mr. Koestenbaums book, reveals the Humiliation remembered SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com There are few positions in life more humiliating than being the unchosen friend...staying power of humiliation. I recently received a hand-written thank-you card complete with enclosed photos, the kind often labeled Wedding Bliss. Id sent a check to a friend for her nuptials, and she thanked me with kind words and posed shots of her marital happiness. I tried to share the sentiment. But when I think of her big blond curls and pretty blue eyes I remember a time in Paris when we were just out of college. We met for the afternoon, gossiped over lunch and a carafe of white wine and then made our way through the Luxembourg Gardens as the winter sunlight turned thin and watery. As we passed a row of outside tables, a man with an expensive camera stopped us. Really, he stopped my friend. I need a model for a few minutes, he said to her. Would you stay there for just a second? I stood off to the side and waited for my friend to decline. Would you mind holding my bags? she said to me. The photographer posed her against a nearby column and gave instructions so that her face would best capture the fading light. Tilt your chin toward me, he said. Good.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 But Scandinavian mysteries existed way before his Lisbeth Salander arrived on the scene, and many of those mysteries are much better written and crafted than the Millennium books. The world of Nordic crime literature is broader and deeper, but as with icebergs, many Americans are aware of only a small portion of the genre and are unfamiliar with other great Scandinavian writers. In the s, Danish writer Peter Hegs Smillas Sense of Snow spent 26 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list. It was also named the 1993 Book of the Year by both Time magazine and Entertainment Weekly. (A movie based on the book and starring Julia Ormond and Gabriel Byrne came out in 1997.) And the Swedish writing team of Maj Sjwall and Per Wahl are considered the grandparents of the genre in their country. Their classic mysteries, with titles such as The Laughing Policeman and The Fire Engine That Disappeared, are still in print. Will readers who loved the Millennium trilogy devour other Swedish or Scandinavian mysteries? Its hard to tell. Would lovers of fast food develop a taste for fine French cuisine? Would Justin Bieber fans start appreciating the Beatles and the Rolling Stones? Sadly, Americans can be a pretty xenophobic lot, so its anyones guess if theyll move on to reading books by other foreign authors. Itd be great if they do. But consider this: Even though the Millennium books were made into Swedish movies, American filmmakers still feel the need to make American versions of them. Sigh. If you loved the Millennium trilogy and want to see what else is out there or if you hated them and want to read some better quality mysteries written by Scandinavians heres just a small sampling of what else is out there. Maj Sjwall and Per WahlSTARTING IN THE 1960S, THIS HUSband-and-wife team wrote a series of 10 books about Martin Beck. In his nonfiction book Bloody Murder: From the Detective Story to the Crime Novel, Julian Symon wrote about the Martin Beck series: They might come under the heading of Police Novels except that the authors are more interested in the philosophical implications of crime than in straightforward police routine. And mystery writer Val McDermid, whose introduction can be found in the beginning of the couples book, The Man Who Went Up in Smoke, says, Reading the Martin Beck series with 21st century eyes, its almost impossible to grasp how revolutionary they felt when they first appeared almost 40 years ago. So many elements that have become integral to the point of clich in the police procedural subgenre started life in these ten novels. So many of the features we take for granted and sigh over in a world-weary way have their roots in a couple of journalists turned crime writers. It is Ms. Sjwall and Mr. Wahl who turned the genre into something deeper, a way of reflecting the evils of society, rather than something just meant to entertain, Ms. McDermid says. Their Martin Beck books, from Roseanna to The Terrorists, are known collectively as The Story of a Crime. According to Ms. McDermid, their book The Laughing Policeman was the only translated novel to have won the Mystery Writers of Americas Edgar Award for Best Novel. Henning MankellTHIS SWEDISH MYSTERY WRITER created the Kurt Wallander series. Ive fallen in love with Henning Mankells books; initially, theyre deceptively simple, almost as if Anne Tyler were writing Swedish mysteries. His simple, elegant sentences, however, build upon each other quietly, like snow, like the clues that slowly reveal themselves to this brooding police inspector. The weather and the locale of Ystad, Sweden, are as much characters in the book as the people. This is the writer the Washington Post dubbed the godfather of Swedish crime. His books have sold more than 40 million copies and been translated into 40-plus languages. Among his many awards: two Swedish Crime Writers Academy Best Swedish Crime Novel Awards, the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger for Best Crime Novel of the Year and the Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel. In 2008, he was the ninth best-selling author in the world. Hes even outsold Harry Potter in Germany. Through his character Inspector Wallander, Mr. Mankell comments on the changing society in Sweden as well as familial conflicts and how we age and face our mortality. (PBS made a series of adaptations based on the Wallander books, but Kenneth Branagh, who plays Wallander, seems too lightweight and pretty for the role.) The last book in the series, The Troubled Man, came out earlier this year and was a New York Times best-seller. Theyre best read in the order they were written, as, just as in real life, the characters age and change as time passes. When it comes to Swedish mystery writers, Mr. Mankell is the heavyweight champion. Arnaldur IndridasonARNALDUR INDRIDASON, AN ICE-LANDIC crime writer, can be consistently found on Icelands best-seller lists. His series about Reykjavik detective Erlendur Sveinsson began in 1997, with Sons of Dust. The third book in that series, Jar City, was the first to be printed in the U.S., where it earned critical acclaim. (A movie of the same name, based on the book, was released in 2006.) Erlendur (Icelandic people refer to each other by first name) is a loner, divorced, with two grown children. His daughter is pregnant, but still using drugs. Murder is rare in Iceland, but Erlendur is involved in solving many of them. The books are solidly written and as bleak as an Icelandic landscape. Mr. Indridasons books have been published in more than 30 countries and have sold more than 6 million copies. The latest in his series in the U.S. is Hypothermia.Jo Nesb JO NESB, A NORWEGIAN MYSTERY writer, has published eight books in his Harry Hole crime series; only half of them have been published so far in the U.S. (His name isnt pronounced Joe Nez-bow, but more like You Nes-bah.) Mr. Nesbs protagonist is Henry Hole (pronounced HER-ler), a detective inspector of the Crime Squad in Oslo, Norway. At one point during his most recent book, The Snowman, he gets a description of another policeman: unhealthy attitude toward alcohol, difficult temperament, lone wolf, unreliable, doubtful morality and very blemished record. My spiritual doppelganger, Hole thinks. Though riddled with personal failures, the character is someone you cheer on. In this page-turner of a book thats part police procedural, part thriller and (small) part horror story, Hole matches wits with a serial killer dubbed the Snowman. It seems to be his best, and might be the one that earns him a larger American audience. Mr. Nesbs titles have sold more than 6 million copies worldwide (1.5 million in Norway alone,) and his work has been translated into 40 languages. He received the Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel. Karin FossumI FIRST CAME UPON NORWEGIAN WRITER Karin Fossums books by reading one of her stand-alone novels. Broken opens with a man standing at the foot of the authors bed at night. It turns out theres a line of characters standing outside, waiting to be written about; though he was close to the front, he has jumped the line and is insisting to be written about next. The chapters alternate between the book the author then begins to write, and her interactions with the main character, who shows up to ask the author questions or make suggestions. An interesting book about the creative process, it reminded me a little of the French movie, Swimming Pool. Ms. Fossum, known as Norways Queen of Crime, has written a series about Inspector Sejer. The one Ive read, The Waters Edge, is about a boy who disappears and is found raped and murdered. Then another boy goes missing. The plot sounds well worn, but Ms. Fossum elevates it above clich. She has great psychological insight to her characters, and writes with depth. She gives us a window into her characters innermost emotions. I dont know any other writer who would devote a chapter apiece to each mother, talking about her child and her emotions in an almost stream of consciousness. The story also contains an abusive husband who, thrilled by discovering the dead child, becomes obsessed with the case. Ms. Fossums latest novel, Bad Intentions, was just released in the U.S. on Aug. 9. Based on Broken and The Waters Edge, I plan to read all her Inspector Sejer mysteries in order. Anders Roslund and Brge HellstrmBETTER KNOWN AS ROSLUND AND HELlstrm, the Swedish writing team of Anders Roslund and Brge Hellstrm write gritty mystery novels that could also be classified as thrillers. Mr. Roslund is an award-winning journalist; Mr. Hellstrom is described in the jacket copy as an excriminal. Their latest book, Three Seconds, was recently published in the U.S. Almost 500 pages long, it tells the story of Piet Hoffmann, a criminal whos being used as a secret operative by the Swedish police. He infiltrates the Polish mafia, who are set to take over the amphetamine distribution within Swedens prison system. It takes a criminal to play a criminal, he keeps telling himself. During a drug deal, another undercover police officer is killed, and the police, not knowing that Hoffmann is working undercover for them, start searching for him. He winds up being wanted by both the police and the mafia. As the authors write in an end-of-thebook explanation: The Police Service has for many years used criminals as covert human intelligence sources. A cooperation that is denied and concealed. In order to investigate serious crime, other crimes have been marginalized and a number of preliminary investigations and trials have therefore been carried out without the correct information. Three Seconds was a top 10 bestseller in Sweden for eight months and received the Swedish Academy of Crime Writers Award for Swedish Crime Novel of the Year. H kan Nesser SWEDISH AUTHOR HAKN NESSERS crime series revolves around Chief Inspector Van Veeteren in the fictional city of Maardam. The country is never named, but the names he uses are mostly Dutch. His works have been translated into various languages, and hes a three-time winner of the Best Swedish Crime Novel Award. His Carambole was awarded the Crime Writers of Scandinavia Glass Key Award for Best Crime Novel. I read the latest in the series, The Inspector and Silence, in which Van Veeteren goes to the country to help solve the murder of a young woman who was attending a religious sects camp. Suspicion is on Oscar Yellinek, the selfstyled prophet and leader of the Pure Life sect. But the leader doesnt come across as all that pure himself. Both the police and the sect are closed groups that are suspicious of outsiders. Mr. Nesser doesnt take the easy way out and stereotype either group. His chief inspector even unknowingly quotes the Bible to himself, saying, at one point, Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Van Veeteren has a strong inner life that readers are privy to; in this book, hes weary of the work, weary of the dead bodies, and contemplating quitting to take a job in a bookstore. Though this one can be read on its own, I had the feeling that I had walked in during the middle of the action, and plan to read the four earlier titles: Borkmanns Point, The Return, Minds Eye and Woman with Birthmark.No mystery hereIf you like crime novels with good writing, good plots and brooding Scandinavians, you cant go wrong with any of these writers from Sweden, Norway and Iceland. If anyone tells you theyre the next Stieg Larsson, dont believe them. These writers are much, much better. And there are many more where they came from. UMLAUTFrom page 1

Get Ready for the PRIME of your Life There I sat, in that house that must have been as old as time itself. I sat, staring out that same window, my eyes seeming to wander off in a vacant stare. Raindrops smeared the windows, like the tears that ran down my face. I was remembering the day the day it all happened. The day my best friend Molly and I were playing out in the street. The day he came in his old pickup truck and just scooped her up like a hawk, catching his next prey. I remembered that wicked, disturbing smile he gave me as he drove away. I was in shock, not really sure of what had just gone on, but there was nothing I could do but panic and scream. Mollys mother rushed out and the moment she saw her daughter was gone, she raced inside and picked up the phone. Within a few minutes, a black car drove up, though there were no lights or sirens. A tall man in an expensive looking suit and tie stepped out and made his way up to the house. I followed him inside. He sat down with Mollys mom. I wanted to see what was going on, but they made me go upstairs. Instead, I sat at the top of the staircase and listened closely. He introduced himself as Detective Rogers and asked Mollys mom a lot of question. Did you see who took your daughter? Do you have any enemies that could be possible suspects? Have you had suspicions about anyone in your neighborhood lately? When he asked or any witnesses who might be able to give more details, I got called down. Detective Rogers looked at me and smiled. Honey, did you see who took your friend Molly? When I nodded, Mollys mom rushed over to my side. She put her hands on my shoulders, looked into my eyes and said, Who took her? You know you can tell us anything, Jessie. Please, where is my daughter? Tell me who took my little girl! She was scared and desperate for answers. I told them everything I could. It was the man in the old red pickup truck. He wears those big glasses and I think he lives in the house at the end of the street. I was only 6 years old. I had only seen that guy three times at the most. There wasnt much I could give them. I just wanted Molly back. Detective Rogers thanked us and started heading for the door. He left us with these words: I promise, the next time I return, it will be with Molly, safe and sound. Unfortunately, that was a promise that was never kept. It was reported Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. (just three days after Molly went missing) that a body had been found in the woods tied up in a trash bag less than a mile away from Joseph Reeds house. When they showed Josephs picture on TV, I knew it was him. The body was later identified as my best friend, Molly Hartley. Joseph Reed was found guilty of murder in the first degree and was sentenced to life in prison. Though that monster might have been brought to justice, the Hartley family and I havent been the same since. I remember the look on Ms. Hartleys face when she saw the news. She looked like she had just been punched in the stomach. She fell to the floor and started trembling, screaming and crying. I wanted to do the same. Yet for some reason, I was just too upset to grieve. All the pain and sorrow was there inside me, but it was locked away. And it feels like it just keeps building up. There is a gaping hole in my heart that might be able to get stitched up, but it shall never truly heal. Later that day, my parents came over to the Hartley house to pick me up and also pay their respects. During the drive back home, no one spoke, and it felt like it took longer than usual. When we were home, it was even worse. It felt like something was missing. I can still feel the absence of Molly herself. Its all so unsettling, and whenever it gets to the point where I just cant take it anymore, I go upstairs and I just sit, staring out that same window.Coincidentally, there seems to be a pattern. Every time I go to look out that window, a terrible storm falls among the town; but every time a storm ends, a magnificent rainbow appears.

Writers face a new challengeThe Remembrance of Molly Daughters Healing Rainy Reveries BY TATYANA YSAGUIRRE____________________Naples / Seventh gradeOn rain-soaked days, daughter sits by her windowpane, Stares somewhere out beyond scenes blurring in the rain. Standing watch, in our hall, from questions I abstain. But, she knows Im here, one parent who still remains. Mostly sunny days in South Floridas terrain, Good friends, music, sports, school all help her to sustain Strength, purpose, hope, and her normality maintain. Still, rain reminds of when official notice came. As we cried, hugged, Taps was played in soft, misting rain. She was his angel, daughter needing no constrains. I learned fine fathers leave their examples ingrained, Arming kids with tools that allow them to retain, Warm love and guidance, fend off depressionss stain. Yet, todays dreary summer afternoon of rain, Reminds of our hero who went down with his plane, How, still, in hearts, his love and courage will remain.

LOBSTER SPECIALS Summer Lobster Ravioli series together After we do enough, people will instantly recognize our books. Were one of the few not doing photographs and were not using the kind of stereotypical images used on these covers. Overall, Mr. Johnson says, hes pleased with the launch. The series is doing well. And the company offers a yearly deal to lovers of crime novels: 12 books a year, one a month, mailed out 30 days in advance of the publishing date, for $100 a year. Weve had a lot of takers, he says. Theres plenty of evidence that Americans really dont care where a book comes from or what the authors name is: If its a good book, theyre going to read it, he says. I think the response to our crime series shows an interest in other places, other kinds of people and other cultures. A lot of people read crime books like travel literature; they want to experience an armchair vacation Manuel Vazquez Montalbans character always talks about what hes eating. Hes a gourmand, always going to restaurants, cooking, talking about the food. The author also wrote cookbooks, as if written by his character, Mr. Johnson adds. As the series grows, Mr. Johnson is looking to Africa, Asia and South America for more mystery writers. Theres a big world of things waiting to be found out, he says. far, the publisher has released approximat el y 20 titles in the series. The list is growing fast, Mr. Johnson says. We do a lot of translated work; Im well-read in European literature. Every now and then I come across a crime novel that seems like a Melville House book to me, and not like the crime fiction other houses are doing. As an example, he points to Manuel Vazquez Montalban, a writer from Barcelona, Spain. Melville House will publish his books in Spring 2012. While most are set in Spain, Mr. Montalbans protagonist also travels to other Spanish-speaking countries. The crime always grows out of politics, Mr. Johnson says. For example, hes in Barcelona, the hotbed of the Spanish Civil War, so a lot of his books are somehow rooted in the war: Your father was a Communist, my father was a Fascist. And the crime emanates out of that situation. I find these books really interesting. Theyre not only whodunits, but also interesting history lessons, interesting discussion of politics, theyre very smart books in addition to having a lot of action. Its also true of most of the books weve done in the series. Mr. Johnson plans on publishing five of Mr. Montalbans books. Also included in the series are a number of books by German writer Jakob Arjouni, whose detective, Kemal Kayankaya, is a Turkish immigrant in Germany. In Germany there are a couple of generations of Turkish immigrants, so theres racism, Mr. Johnson explains. Its like the American southwest, white Americans vs. Mexicans. There are immigration politics. The books take place in the aftermath of the Bosnian wars, so there are a lot of former soldiers dont know what to do with themselves. These are stories steeped in very modern political situations. Theyre not just somebody got mad and killed their husband; theyre all very complicated and very involving on several levels. Audrey Kurkovs book, Death and the Penguin, revolves around Vicktor, an out-of-work writer in Kiev whose only friend is Misha, a penguin he rescued from the local zoo. When hired to write obituaries of local dignitaries obituaries written in advance so the newspaper will be ready when someone ARTS COMMENTARY Melville Houses International Crime series publishes books from all over the world Germany, Israel, Ukraine, Africa, France, Spain. Everywhere but Sweden. We do have one rule: no Swedish writers, says publisher Dennis Johnson. Im joking, he hastens to clarify. But, he acknowledges, all the other publishers are looking for Swedish mysteries. Everybodys doing them, he says. So hes not looking. Thats not to say he wouldnt buy one if he came across something that grabbed his interest. Its really picked over, he says. Were trying not to do what everybody else is doing. Were trying to do it differently, and not be part of the same old-same old. Thats the only way we can compete in a world with all these giants. In an industry full of publishing Goliaths, Melville House Publishing, based in Brooklyn, N.Y., could definitely be considered a David. Its an independent publishing house born out of the book blog MobyLives. Mr. Johnsons not a big crime reader, but admires what he calls classic American stuff: Chandler, Hammett and Cain, the holy trilogy of the founding fathers of noir. I think the crime genre is the one genre that can attract people who like serious literature, he says. People who like to read Tolstoy dont want to read science fiction or romance, but the idea of crime doesnt put them off. Dostoyevsky wrote crime novels. Theres more potential for the genre than most crime publishers are doing. We dont think we need to publish to the lowest common denominator; our books are very smart. They have all the interesting suspense of a crime book and yet you can learn some history, learn some politics, really get into another culture in a very deep way through these books. Thats something that really pleases me to publish. The Melville House International Crime series began in Fall 2010; so f m s w n nancySTETSON nstetson@floridaweekly.com A world of crimedies he realizes that the people hes writing about are actually dying soon after he pens their obituary. Death and the Penguin was reviewed positively in The New York Times and The Cleveland Plain Dealer and was also a best-seller on Amazon.I feel these books keep to the original noir genre created by those great California writers (Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and James Cain), Mr. Johnson says. They were very literary writers, and writing out of the politics of the moment. The stories were rooted in the Depression, in the politics of the time, a desperate economic moment in our countrys history.Its a very political genre. The commercial stuff can have hints of that and be very gritty, but it doesnt seem to be telling a story of the moment like those great books. Those are the kind of books Im looking for. Theyre not just commercial entertainments. The publishing companys art director, Christopher King, came up with the idea to make the covers look like posters for Hitchcock movies. Were really trying to break the mold and look different with the books, Mr. Johnson says. We came up with a look for each writer within the series. For example, all the books by Jakob Arjourni, the German writer, (designed by Kelly Blair), are a bright color with a single illustration a knife, a person running away on a color field. All the books for each writer will look similar, and all the books in the entire series will look as they belong to the same family. We hope that overall, people will realize that there is some kind of thing linking the wri t y w i l mes tell t ers reall boo k wa n

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 C11 The body-switching comedy (Freaky Friday, Vice Versa) is a subgenre we dont see very often, largely because these movies have limited potential for creativity. The Change-Up is no different than the rest: It features the standard mystical transformation, awkward moments as one person tries to be another, and a predictable ending we all expect.But you know what? Its funny. Raunchier than expected (baby poop flies in Jason Batemans face in the opening scene), no doubt, but never too crass or disgusting. This is a film that easily couldve been terrible but that actually makes for a fun night out.Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) and Dave (Jason Bateman) have been friends since third grade, but now their lives couldnt be more different. Dave is an overworked lawyer, husband to Jamie (Leslie Mann) and a father of three. In contrast, Mitch is a single, quasi-employed actor who has never met a bong he wouldnt hit. For each, the grass is greener on the other side. Understandable. After a drunken night out together, they urinate in a park fountain and wake the next morning each trapped inside the others body. Now Mitch, in Daves body, has to pick up the kids and close an important deal at work, whereas Dave, in Mitchs body, needs to act in a soft-core porno film and maintain Mitchs delinquent image. Of course, they find that the others life really isnt that great: Dave learns Mitch isnt quite the playboy he thinks he is, and the joys of marriage, money and fatherhood arent as enjoyable for Dave as Mitch believed. What makes the movie work is the chemistry between Mr. Bateman and Mr. Reynolds. Their characters bicker like old friends do, making it appropriately creepy that they now so intimately know the others body. Mr. Bateman, who usually plays a buttoned-up, know-it-all square, nicely lets loose and has a lot of fun during his Mitch moments. And Mr. Reynolds, who wowed us with a stellar dramatic turn in Buried last year and easily shifts between romantic comedies (The Proposal) and action (Green Lantern), is more foul-mouthed and despicable as Mitch than weve ever seen him before. Mitch might use the f-word repeatedly, but Mr. Reynolds makes him likeable and vulnerable, particularly when Mitch meets with his disapproving dad (Alan Arkin). Director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) paces the film well and makes the most of the script by The Hangover scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Most importantly, the story grows organically, makes sense and never feels forced. For example, knowing that Dave has a crush on co-worker Sabrina (Olivia Wilde) means it wouldve been very easy for Mitch, while in Daves body, to try to seduce her. At least Daves body could sleep with her even if he cant. Instead, Dave (as Mitch) gets to take Sabrina on a date and thereby fulfill the wild oats he desires to sow by being away from the responsibility of family. Its a nice scene that comes late in the story and feels genuine something many comedies struggle to achieve. The Change-Up probably doesnt set the gold standard for body-switching comedies, but its smart and funny and warm, which is everything it should be. 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.Cowboys & Aliens (Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde) In the Old West, a thief (Mr. Craig) and a cattle rancher (Mr. Ford) team up to stop aliens from kidnapping their townspeople and stealing their gold. Thats right: The aliens care about gold. What a joyless, life-suffocating, cross-genre mess this is. Not only that, its boring beyond belief. Rated PG-13.The Smurfs (Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria, Sofia Vergara) Evil wizard Gargamel (Mr. Azaria) chases the tiny blue Smurfs from their enchanted village and they all end up in New York City, where the Smurfs befriend a loving couple (Mr. Harris, Jayma Mays) about to have a baby. The animated Smurfs mesh well with the real world, but its all so cutesy that this is strictly for kids. Rated PG.Crazy, Stupid, Love (Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling) After his wife (Ms. Moore) tells him she wants a divorce, a father (Mr. Carell) gets advice from a lothario (Mr. Gosling) and becomes a surprising ladies man. Theres also a love story involving Mr. Goslings Jacob and an aspiring lawyer named Hannah (Emma Stone), but herein lies the movies biggest problem: The love entanglements of older and younger generations dont complement one another, and the movie isnt funny enough to keep us entertained in spite of its narrative flaws.

A deliciously dark comedy by Adam Szymkowicz, Elsewhere follows Teddy, a delivery man, on a bizarre adventure that begins when he delivers a package to Celia, a beautiful recluse. The last thing Teddy expects is to be asked to dinner, and when he accepts the invitation, he doesnt expect to be invited to move in. After he settles in with Celia, he definitely doesnt expect all that follows, including the arrival of Celias sister, Celias potent potatoes and her adeptness with a shovel. After placing in Theatre Conspiracys contest, Elsewhere was selected as the inaugrual script for the Square One Series, a new play development program founded by The Bloomington Playwrights Project, Theatre Conspiracy, Chicago Dramatists, Greenbrier Valley Theatre and Exposed Productions in New York. SOS is a cooperative effort in which one play a year is selected by the artistic directors of each company and given readings at two participating theaters, a staged reading at a third then a full production at the fourth. Elsewhere will find its way from a production in Fort Myers to the lights of off-Broadway in October. Mr. Szymkowiczs plays have been produced throughout the U.S. and in Canada, England, the Netherlands, Germany and Lithuania. His work includes Deflowering Waldo, Open Minds, Anne, The Art Machine, Pretty Theft, Cold Fusion, Bee Eater and Nerve. He received a playwrights diploma from The Juilliard Schools Lila Acheson Wallace American playwrights program and an MFA from Columbia University, where he was the deans fellow. Performances of Elsewhere are at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Aug. 12-27, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21. Regular admission is $18. Opening night is pa y-whatyou-will.

William Morrow. 400 pages. $24.99 hardback; $7.99 mass market paperback. Cape Coral writer Lisa Black has designed a rousing story with two timelines. One tells of a serial killer operating in Depressionera Cleveland. The killers trademark? Beheading the corpse and (sometimes) removing other body parts from the victims torso. In the second, set in todays Cleveland, two corpses show up. One decayed body turns up in an abandoned building thats about to be demolished. It seems to be the work of the infamous Torso Killer of the mid1930s. Whats especially intriguing is that the torso proves to be the remains of a Cleveland policeman. The other body, newly deceased, looks like the work of a copycat a Torso Killer wannabe. The narration begins with the presentday perspective, though moving back and forth between forensic scientist Theresa MacLeans investigations of both crimes. Once the investigations are well underway, the second time line opens up, following policeman James Miller as he investigates a crime at 4950 Pullman the very place where he is found dead more than 75 years later. From this point, Ms. Black develops the timelines in alternating chapters, bringing them closer together while doubling the novels suspense and interest. In this way, the reader discovers two versions of Cleveland, two states of forensic science and two stages of the railroad industry (an important element in the setting and plot). Ms. Blacks interest in fictional speculation about an actual series of crimes has brought her the challenge of creating, for part of her novel, an effective period piece. She has proven to be more than up to the task.The killer (killers, actually) had done a fantastic job of covering his tracks. In spite of the title (which ultimately takes on an unexpected meaning), the blood trail is almost nonexistent. One great pleasure of this book, the third in Ms. Blacks Theresa MacLean series, is the detailed yet gripping presentation of the forensic investigation. The author, an experienced forensic professional, knows exactly what is possible and probable in such matters and shuns the spectacular and improbable overreach FLORIDA WRITERS A forensic field day in Lisa Blacks Cleveland philJASON pkjason@comcast.net SEE WRITERS, C17 BLACK

Naples, June 15, 2011 of those popular forensicbased television shows. A primary question that Theresa has to solve: How does the killer move his victims from the crime scenes to the locations where they are discovered without being seen? Without leaving a clue? Related questions: What is the meaning of the dismemberments? How, in an act of extreme bravado, does he pull off yet another murder at a scene swarming with police officers? In Trail of Blood, the gathering and analysis of physical evidence, along with the testing of assumptions, serve to deepen the mystery before exposing the criminal. As Theresa, working with her detective cousin Frank Patrick, gets closer to solving the case, her own life is threatened. The killer seems to have her in his sights. Though Ms. Blacks protagonist is a person whose life is largely defined by her work obsession, Theresa is given enough dimension to make the reader care about her, not just about the case. Theresa is going through two related crises. Her 40th birthday is approaching with all of the attendant weight of times flight. Also, the romantic side of her personal life is on hold. Or is it? The negative outcomes of her past relationships are on her mind. Her daughter, whom readers have met in the earlier novels, is now away at college, and Theresa doesnt hear from her nearly enough. Shes struggling with the empty nest syndrome. Her relationships with her family emerge through her conversations with cousin Frank. These varied, carefully blended ingredients make Trail of Blood, recently released in paperback, a top contender in todays high-powered world of crime fiction.

The cup is used for a toast and as a trial for the bride and groom. According to tradition, the earliest swivel cups were made in about 1450 in Nuremberg, Germany. A wealthy nobleman disapproved of his daughters choice of a husband, a goldsmith. The father had the goldsmith sent to a dungeon, but the girl became ill and her father finally agreed to a test for her beloved. If the goldsmith could make a chalice that two people could drink from at the same time without spilling a drop, the pair could wed. The goldsmith made the swiveling cup and they were permitted to marry. Today the cups are being made again and a newly married couple must drink from the cup at the same time to assure a happy marriage. The lady-shaped cup is turned upside-down and the husband drinks from the skirt, the wife from the small cup that has now swiveled to be right side up. It is a difficult but possible task, and happiness is, of course, assured. Look for old cups made of Wedding cups said to ensure matrimonial bliss terryKOVEL news@floridaweekly.com KOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING SEE KOVELS, C19 silver or glass. Several were offered this year at the Stein Auction Co. for $700 to $2,400. Reproductions can be found online. Q: I own a beautiful Kroehler buffet that belonged to my grandmother. She and my grandfather bought it when they were first married, decades ago. I have never used it, and its in great shape. Now I would like to sell it. What should I ask for it? A: Peter E. Kroehler bought the Naperville (Ill.) Lounge Co. in 1902 but didnt name it Kroehler Manufacturing Co. until the early 1910s. By the 1940s, Kroehler was one of the largest furniture manufacturers in the United States. It struggled through the 1970s and closed its Naperville factory in 1978. The brand still exists, but the original company closed. Generally, its a good idea to sell a large piece of furniture locally. So advertise it in your own city. What you can get for it depends on its style, age and condition. Assuming your buffet dates from the 1930s or s, you could try asking $500, but you probably will have to settle for less. Q: We own an old Hires Root Beer countertop barrel dispenser. Its wooden and encircled with six metal hoops. It has one large spigot on the side and two metal signs. The large red sign on the front says, Drink Hires, It Is Pure. The plain small sign on the back says, Loaned by The Charles E. Hires Co., Philadelphia, U.S.A., No. 15294. What can you tell me about it? A: Charles E. Hires (1851-1937) was a Philadelphia pharmacist when he developed his own root beer concoction in the 1870s. Dispensers like yours (with either a copper or ceramic lining), as well as ceramic dispensers with pump tops, were used at soda fountains to pour syrup into a glass or mug. Your dispenser probably dates from the first few decades of the 20th century. We have seen similar dispensers for various brands sell for $400-$500. But the value also depends on the condition of your barrel. Q: I would like information about a set of dishes I bought. Its a service for eight. The dishes are marked on the bottom Made in German Democratic Republic with a crown and the words Von Herreberg Porzellan 1777.

The porcelain factory was founded by Christian Zacharias Grabner in Ilmenau, Thuringia, Germany, in 1777 and operated under various names. It was nationalized after World War II and became VEB Porzellanwerk Graf von Henneberg. The German Democratic Republic (East Germany) was in existence from 1949 to 1990, so your set of dishes was made during that time. The company went out of business in 2002. Q: Ive been collecting dolls for a very long time but have never been able to find any information about a doll I got in 1957. She is 10 inches tall and has a childs body, blond hair and open-close eyes. Shes wearing a pink-andwhite striped dress with silver trim, a mink stole and white shoes and socks. Shes never been out of the original box. On the outside of the box, it reads Here Comes Little Miss Addie. Can you tell me anything about this doll and its value?A: Little Miss Addie was a premium offered by AD, a laundry detergent, in 1957. AD stood for Automatic Detergent. The doll was advertised as a $6.95 value for only $3 and an AD box top. An 8-inch littlesister doll was offered in 1958. The dolls are attributed to the Block Doll Co. Not much is known about this company except that it sold inexpensive toddler dolls during the 1950s. Your doll is worth $30 to $40 if its mintin-box. Tip: Tufted Victorian pieces covered in dark velvet need to be dusted in each tuft, a timeconsuming process. Consider reupholstering without tufts, a style also done in Victorian times.

Its also about time and talent. Over the past several years, the Community Foundation of Collier County has had the pleasure of working with the Harvard Club of Naples to place Harvard students in nonprofit organizations that provide meaningful work and education to support their professional development. Since it began in 2008, the Harvard Club community service fellowship/ internship program has become a win-win operation for all participants. The nonprofits that work with the students, as well as the people these organizations serve, receive significant benefit, at no cost to them, from the students expertise, computer skills and dedication, says Jeanne Gullahorn, the programs liaison. The students, in turn, gain financial support as well as important work experience and insight into the challenges confronting nonprofit organizations and their clients. This summer, the Harvard Club sponsored four student interns, two of whom have been here at the Community Foundation: Haris Domond, an incoming freshman, is working on the Collier 211 project; Kate Caputo, a rising senior studying mechanical engineers and astrophysics, is assisting with the Womens Philanthropic Network. Ms. Caputo has worked with Jane Billings at the foundation to create a new communication network, help redesign the website and strategize for the upcoming season. Through research, surveys and interviews, we were able to create a three-year plan to engage members and grow the endowment, she says. The internship, she adds, has opened my eyes to the world of philanthropy and the inner workings of a nonprofit organization. Mr. Domond, Naples High Schools 2011 Graduate of Distinction, is on his way to Harvard later this month. I was ecstatic when the Harvard Club called to tell me they had found a position for me at the Community Foundation, he says. As he has learned about the business side of nonprofit management, he adds, I had no idea how much goes on behind the scenes. Mr. Domond has been working closely with Mary George, director of special programs at the foundation, on the new NONPROFIT NEWS SEE FOUNDATION, C21 BY COLLEEN MURPHY____________________Special to Florida WeeklyTime and talent are important, valuable philanthropic gifts

Dine inside or out on items such as smoked salmon Benedict, tenderloin and mushroom omelet and banana Foster French toast. The meat in the omelet was on the chewy side, but the smoked salmon Benedict was a refreshing variation on the standard. The standout of the meal was the bananas Foster French toast, featuring thick-sliced challah sauted to a fluffy golden brown and topped with chunks of ripe banana, sauce and whipped cream. The place was busy and service a bit on the choppy side, but the setting is so lovely that staying a little longer didnt prove a hardship.

Whats beyond the ho-hum faade is a fetching view of the tranquil back bay waters, an ultra-casual atmosphere, cheerful servers and a simple, wellexecuted menu. If you like your seafood good straightforwardly grilled, broiled, blackened or fried then paired with homey sides like hush puppies, fries and slaw, theres plenty to like here. I particularly like that the menu indicates heart-healthy dishes. I can recommend the steamed clams, the coconut shrimp basket and, my personal favorite, grouper tacos. The Jamaican jerk tuna was good, too, lightly grilled so the interior was rare but with a lively assortment of seasonings forming the crust. Homemade Key lime pie wasnt bad either.

The intimate dining room has the charming ambience of a Parisian caf, and the kitchen serves up food to match. Both the classic bouillabaisse and coq au vin were flawless, as were appetizers of endive salad with spinach, Roquefort cheese chunks and sesame dressing and organic carrot and ginger soup. Portions are realistically sized, just right for a single sitting. Dont miss dessert. We shared an outstanding warm apple tarte tatin with whipped cream. Service was efficient and warm.

Youll find no egg foo yung or crab Rangoon on this menu, just imaginative, artfully plated real Chinese food. Never mind the name: Order the salted pepper calamari, which consists of tender tubes of squid fried to perfection and topped with toasted garlic and onion. The Peking duck is always available and well worth ordering.

Curry coconut black mussels and a salad of red and gold beets with mache and pecan-crusted goat cheese were excellent starters, although those with a taste for carpaccio, raw oysters or meats and cheeses will find suitable options as well. The menu changes regularly so some dishes arent going to be available but the limoncello-marinated salmon with green lentil mustard sauce, as well as the wild halibut and veal osso buco ravioli were outstanding.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 Have a meal at Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar and theres no doubt youll savor the panoramic views of Venetian Bay, the lovely sky above and the dramatically designed homes that flank it. After a major renovation last year, both the bar downstairs and the more formal grill upstairs are vastly enhanced contemporary spaces in which customers dine and drink in style. Large windows, artful lighting and comfortable furniture create a pleasurable spot in which to socialize. A recent dinner in the upstairs grill was my first since the renovation. From an aesthetic view, Bayside has improved significantly. In terms of food and service, theres still work to be done. The menu focuses on seafood, with a wide range of preparations. One of the features I like best is the wealth of small plates available 13 plus five salads, making it easy to dine lightly on two or three of these rather than a full-sized entre. (The bar downstairs also offers a nice assortment of starters along with a few sandwiches and full-sized entrees that are slightly less expensive than their upstairs kin.) Things started promisingly enough. Our server delivered a well-chilled bottle of Chateau DEsclans Whispering Angel 2009 rose, a crisp, dry vintage that will appeal to those who prefer a minimum of fruit aromas and flavors in their wine. Warm, chewy rolls and sweet butter arrived shortly thereafter, followed by appetizers of blue crab spring rolls ($14.95) and a crispy iceberg wedge ($10.95). Both dishes were attractively plated. Two hot, crisp spring rolls possessed excellent crab flavor that was complemented by sweet and spicy red Thai chili sauce, a mound of wakame and slices of pickled ginger. Simple but elegant, the salad consisted of a good-sized wedge of iceberg lettuce topped with diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon and chunky Maytag blue cheese dressing. To go along with his appetizer, my companion chose an Asian-style entre of miso-glazed pan-seared sea bass ($34.95). I headed for a French classic, bouillabaisse ($34.95). Both dishes looked appealing enough when the server delivered them. The sea bass fillet was thick and meaty, resting on an equally generous portion of lobster mashed potatoes, topped with a dollop of wakame and a side of shoestring vegetables. The fish was properly cooked with what appeared to be more of the red Thai chili sauce that had graced the spring rolls. Had the menu indicated what sauce was served with the sea bass, we might have ordered something else to avoid the repetition. The lobster mashed potatoes had just a couple of pieces of lobster (the tips of the claw, which have a thin, grainy end). Id expected more numerous, bite-sized chunks throughout the mound of potatoes, rather than a couple of large and less-thanchoice pieces. On the plus side, the veggies a mix of carrots, yellow squash and zucchini were tender-crisp and lightly seasoned. The bouillabaisse was the low point of the meal. The large bowl was filled with shrimp, mussels, clams, fish and lobster (more claw tips) all nestled in what was described as a tomato-saffron broth. The saffron was evident, but the broth was overpoweringly sweet and lacked the complexity of this traditionally herb-laden dish. I could taste no garlic or seasoning of any kind beneath the cloying sweetness. The flat broth imparted no flavor to the seafood, rendering it bland and lifeless as well. I ate no more than a third of this disappointing dish. When the server came to clear our plates, he picked up the almost full bowl without a word, never asking if I wanted it boxed or whether there was something wrong with the dish. For dessert, we shared a piece of Emilys warm chocolate cake ($9.95). Considering the speed with which it arrived at the table, Im assuming it was microwaved. It was barely warm, light on chocolate flavor and would have been dry without the whipped cream and chocolate sauce that came with it. This was not a dessert worth $10.I expect to pay more to dine at a waterfront restaurant. Given the location, its reasonable to assume that the overhead is higher than average, so prices are, too. But the quality of the food ought to be better than this, especially considering the fact that there are competing establishments in the same complex that can meet the standard. The same applies to service. Although our server delivered courses in a timely fashion, he wasnt particularly attentive, even though the place was far from full. We wound up pouring our own wine and having to ask for refills on water. In most restaurants of this type, a manager stops by the table to find out how the meal is going. If there was a manager on duty, he or she wasnt working the room. Theres no question that the remodeling brought Baysides ambience up to par. Now the management needs to lavish the same effort on improving the food and service. karenFELDMAN cuisine@floridaweekly.com food & wine CALENDAR Thursday, Aug. 11, 5-7 p.m., Bleu Pr ovence: Ross from all over the world are featured in this weeks tasting with hors doeuvres; $10 (credited to those who stay for dinner), 1234 Eighth St. S.; 261-8239.
