FLORIDA WEEKLY ILLUSTRATION LL USTRAT ION BY BILL CORNWELLbcornwell@ Proposed area where Cubans could drill soonBY ANY STANDARD, THIS IS A STRANGE STORY. The greatest environmental catastrophe of our time the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is still fresh in our minds. After all, the explosion at the oil rig occurred in April of last year. And although the disaster was hundreds of miles from Southwest Floridas shores, we easily could have been devastated both economically and environmentally. We were lucky, however, because the actual impact was much less than it could have been. But we came perilously close to a major meltdown. As is the case with most things of this nature, the BP disaster prompted a lot of discussion about the safety of drilling and how we, as a nation, should balance the need for energy and the demands of protecting the environment. So, it seems more than odd that now a new drilling controversy has erupted, although few seem to know that it even exists. The basic facts are this: The Chinese (with partners from Italy, Spain and Cuba) want to begin drilling for oil off the coast of Cuba perilously close to Florida, a mere 60 miles from Key West.

Knowingly and coincidentally, Ms. Cavallaro will also be hosting an informal wake for Army Capt. Dan Eggers, a Green Beret. Dans wife, Major Rebecca Eggers, will fly in from her current duty station at the Pentagon, along with their two sons. His dad and mom, Bill (a Vietnam veteran) and Margaret, will attend, probably with several of his six brothers and sisters. Ms. Cavallaro will meet them all for the first time on Cape Corals Del Prado Boulevard South, at a store called One For The Books, right at 2 p.m. All of us should be there, too from Naples to Sarasota because all of us are part of that broad American family. Ms. Cavallaros unlikely book, Sniper: American Single-Shot Warriors in Iraq and Afghanistan, bears a title so blunt and plain that it veils the sinewy, nuanced river of human experience she captures. That river of love and loss transects her brutal, beautiful stories of soldiers and Marines in battle from start to finish. One of those soldiers was Dan Eggers, who graduated from Cape Coral High School 18 years ago before becoming an alumnus of The Citadel, class of His youngest sister, Rosie, 18, is now a cadet at her brothers famously rigorous alma mater. Capt. Eggers appears in Ms. Cavallaros book through the eyes of Army Master Sergeant Jason Smith, a sniper, a fellow Green Beret and Dans closest friend. Then 28, he was killed instantly in an ambush by a daisy-chain of explosives embedded in the road while leading a mission from the front, in a Humvee, on May 29, 2004. Three other team members riding with him died, too. Master Sgt. Smith traveled right behind them in another vehicle, one of four. Asking me not to use his real last name, he wrote last week from Afghanistan to describe his friend. Green Berets pride themselves in being the only guys that can completely immerse themselves in the locals environment. We deployed to Shinkay in March of and Capt. Eggers immediately set out to do that. Dan was so immersed in their culture that he didnt even wear American clothes after a while. Didnt eat our food, in fact, he spent more time with the Afghans than he did with us. When we went to the Shuras (councils of Afghan lawmakers), Dans charm and personality would completely win over the locals. Trained as an Arabic speaker, he still had a good working knowledge of Pashto (the local tongue). He would go on with those folks for hours long after we were all bored and ready to go home!!! The guy honestly gave a shit about making their lives better. Help good guys, Kill bad guys. That is the mission and Dan was great at it. His Special Forces team members were great at it, too. The (nine) Taliban that killed Dan died from American bullets by pissed off Green Berets later that day, Master Sgt. Smith recalled in his e-mail. Good, I say. I had never killed anyone before that day, (but) since then I have been lucky enough to shoot quite a few. In a weird kinda way that does make me feel better. Such reflections suggest that Americans in war have changed little over time, in part because the terrible demands on them have not changed. The loneliness, the fear and the fighting is the same the shared misery of being at war together. None of thats ever going to change, Ms. Cavallaro said when I called her Friday. They give their lives or they lose their families, so those sacrifices are the same (as they always have been) since the Roman legions. The stories in the book are from their point of view, the chaos of war. Ms. Cavallaros uncompromising clarity is a tribute to the greatest American war correspondent, Ernie Pyle, who was killed by a sniper on Okinawa, in April 1945. Ernie Pyle will always be our beacon in this profession, she explained. As a professional war correspondent for Gannetts Military Times Media Group, Ms. Cavallaro has been in and out of Afghanistan and Iraq for nearly a decade, one of the few journalists to stay the course of the wars. Her obvious and measureless affection for the soldiers and Marines on the ground is not sentimental, and neither is she. The unflinching stories begin with her own harrowing loss the loss of Spc. Francisco Martinez, a soldier who became her friend before he was shot and mortally wounded by an enemy sniper as she stood next to him in the Five Kilo area of Rimadi, in Iraq, shortly after 3 p.m. on Palm Sunday, 2005. One moment she was living in a warm bright afternoon. The next moment she had forever inhabited a dark new world, while Spc. Martinez lay on his back near her, dying. I spoke to him in Spanish, my face a few inches from his, my left hand stroking his hair, Ms. Cavallaro remembers in the books introduction. Squeeze my hand, I told him, aprietame la mano. Look at me, I said, mirame. Dont fall sleep on me, I pleaded, no te me duermas. Breathe, my love, r espira mi amor. Johnson and I grew more desperate as he began to fade. The shot that finally killed Paquito, as she called him affectionately, had been catastrophic, ripping through Paquitos liver, a lung and a kidney, causing massive internal hemorrhage. He remained alive and joking he was that tough for a couple of hours as medics and doctors tried to save him. But that shot also ripped through Paquitos family in Texas and Puerto Rico. Just as the explosives that killed Dan Eggers ripped through three generations of the Eggers clan on the Gulf coast of Florida and in Washington where his children are growing up without him. The Eggers loss is not only theirs, however he is also our loss. But in their love for him and in the extent to which we can acknowledge their loss and share it with them Dan Eggers is not only their gain, but ours.

PAGE 4 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 One hundred and fifty years ago, no one could mistake the relative power of Europe and China. When the British defeated the Chinese in the First Opium War, they imposed an indemnity, took Hong Kong and forced open more Chinese ports to British merchants. They demanded extraterritoriality for British citizens, exempting them from Chinese law. Other Western powers extracted similar privileges. When this wasnt enough, the British launched the Second Opium War after the Chinese seized a ship flying the British flag and refused to apologize. The French joined in, and the two together captured Beijing, and burned the emperors summer palaces for good measure. The Chinese refer to the period from the middle of the 19th century to the middle of the 20th as the century of shame. Now, the shame is all on their former tormentors as the Europeans beg the Chinese to help bail them out from their debt crisis. The Europeans share a misbegotten single currency that is amplifying the inherent problems attendant to the practice of spending money that you dont have. Perhaps the Greek crisis can be contained, but what if Spain and Italy spin out of control? Europe is trying to fund a bazooka big enough to fend off doubtful markets, but doesnt want to and perhaps cant fund it all by itself. Germany is Europes economic powerhouse, yet its public debt-to-GDP ratio is already larger than ours. This is where China and its $3.2 trillion in foreign reserves come in. If China were to contribute to a bailout fund that Europe wants to build up to $1.4 trillion, it would surely ask for concessions in return, like the Europeans dropping their criticism of Chinas undervalued currency. China also might wonder why it should come to the rescue of a European Union that still has it under an arms embargo. History comes full circle, with the ascendant Chinese in a position to extract concessions from erstwhile colonial powers. So far, though, Beijing is not showing any eagerness to jump into the European bailout business. While it wants a robust European export market, China might be doing the math and realizing that Europe has a problem too big for serial bailouts. The official Xinhua News Agency ran a piece explaining, Amid such an unprecedented crisis in Europe, China can neither take up the role as a savior to the Europeans, nor provide a cure for the European malaise. This reversal in fortunes was a long time in coming. Nothing could have stopped the Chinese from adopting more rational, market-friendly policies a few decades ago, and it has proven immune to appeals to allow its currency to appreciate so its exports dont have such an advantage. What Europe could control was its own destiny. It chose a comfortable, if bankrupting, social democracy and a vast experiment with a single currency. The euro was supposed to be the vehicle and symbol of Europe as a world power, and instead is laying bare its debt-addled decay. For the United States, listing in a similar direction, the turnabout in Europes global position should be of the utmost interest as a cautionary tale. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.11-11-11 is not a variant of Herman Cains much-touted 9-9-9 tax plan, but rather the date of this years Veterans Day. This is especially relevant, as the U.S. has now entered its second decade of war in Afghanistan, the longest war in the nations history. U.S. veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are appearing more and more on the front lines the front lines of the Occupy Wall Street protests, that is. Video from the Occupy Oakland march on Tuesday, Oct. 25, looks and sounds like a war zone. The sound of gunfire is nearly constant in the video. Tear-gas projectiles were being fired into the crowd when the cry of Medic! rang out. Civilians raced toward a fallen protester lying on his back on the pavement, mere steps from a throng of black-clad police in full riot gear, pointing guns as the civilians attempted to administer first aid. The fallen protester was Scott Olsen, a 24-year-old former U.S. Marine who had served two tours of duty in Iraq. The publicly available video shows Olsen standing calmly alongside a Navy veteran holding an upraised Veterans for Peace flag. Olsen was wearing a desert camouflage jacket and sun hat, and his Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) T-shirt. He was hit in the head by a police projectile, most likely a teargas canister, suffering a fractured skull. As the small group of people gathered around him to help, a police officer lobbed a flashbang grenade directly into the huddle, and it exploded. Four or five people lifted Olsen and raced with him away from the police line. At the hospital, he was put into an induced coma to relieve brain swelling. He is now conscious but unable to speak. He communicates using a notepad. I interviewed one of Olsens friends, Aaron Hinde, also an Iraq War veteran. He was at Occupy San Francisco when he started getting a series of frenzied tweets about a vet down in Oakland. Hinde raced to the hospital to see his friend. He later told me a little about him: Scott came to San Francisco about three months ago from Wisconsin, where he actually participated in the holding of the State Capitol over there. Scotts probably one of the warmest, kindest guys I know. Hes just one of those people who always has a smile on his face and never has anything negative to say. ... And he believed in the Occupy movement, because its very obvious whats happening in this country, especially to us veterans. Weve had our eyes opened by serving and going to war overseas. So, theres a small contingency of us out here, and were all very motivated and dedicated. As I was covering one of the Occupy Wall Street rallies in Times Square Oct. 15, I saw Sgt. Shamar Thomas become deeply upset. Police on horseback had moved in on protesters, only to be stopped by a horse that went down on its knees. Other officers had picked up metal barricades, squeezing the frightened crowd against steam pipes. Sgt. Thomas was wearing his desert camouflage, his chest covered with medals from his combat tour in Iraq. He shouted at the police, denouncing their violent treatment of the protesters. Thomas later wrote of the incident: There is an obvious problem in the country and PEACEFUL PEOPLE should be allowed to PROTEST without Brutality. I was involved in a RIOT in Rutbah, Iraq 2004 and we did NOT treat the Iraqi citizens like they are treating the unarmed civilians in our OWN Country. A group calling itself Veterans of the 99 Percent has formed, and with the New York City Chapter of IVAW set Nov. 2 as the day to march to Liberty Plaza to formally join and support the movement. Their announcement read: Veterans of the 99 Percent hope to draw attention to the ways veterans have been impacted by the economic and social issues raised by Occupy Wall Street. They hope to help make veterans and service members participation in this movement more visible and deliberate. When I stopped by Occupy Louisville in Kentucky last weekend, the first two people I met there were veterans. One of them, Gary James Johnson, told me: I served in Iraq for about a year and a half. I joined the military because I thought it was my obligation to help protect this country. And right here, right now, this is another way I can help. Pundits predict the cold weather will crush the Occupy movement. Ask any veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq about surviving outdoors in extreme weather. And consider the sign at Liberty Plaza, held by yet another veteran: nd time Ive fought for my country. 1st time Ive known my enemy. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

PAGE 6 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 Individually and as a couple, Dr. Allen and Marla Weiss have made terrific contributions to our community professionally and personally. I always enjoy having each of them on my show. Dr. Weiss, the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System since 2006, is a frequent guest. Our discussions usually spring from his practical monthly articles, Health Advice by Dr. Weiss, published at In addition, hes knowledgeable and conversant with all the issues confronting health care on the local and national scenes. In our discussions, I find an underlying theme in his commentary: We must maintain and improve quality in health care in an environment of fewer and fewer resources. Dr. Weiss is a fellow of both the American College of Physicians and the American College of Rheumatology, and he graduated from the executive MBA program at Florida Gulf Coast University in 2001. This business training, I believe, has been a perfect complement to his medical training and experience to position Dr. Weiss to lead NCH Healthcare in the 21st century. In the pursuit of excellence, the folks at NCH seek to calibrate quality in every phase of health care and recovery. Dr. Weiss advocates evidence-based medicine, which enhances the prospects for each patients healing and recovery. NCH, with 681 beds and two campuses, is one of only six hospitals in the country ranked in the top 5 percent for both quality and safety by the independent rating agency, HealthGrades. NCH has twice ranked No. 1 in Florida for cardiac care. Marla Weiss is a mathematics educator and writer who has dedicated her professional life to helping kids perform better in math, build self-esteem and, consequently, achieve more with their lives. She has earned four degrees, including a doctorate in math education, and has written eight books. Her supplementary math books focus on individualized pacing, plentiful practice, number sense and cumulative review. She has also written two novels, School Scandalle and School Scoundrelle, both of which convey the importance of education to a broad audience. The royalties of her books go to improve math education both locally and nationally. I did well in math when I was in school, but it was always sad to see kids fall behind; they just never caught up. The Weisses met in New York while both were students and moved to Naples in 1977. Their two daughters are both physicians. Allen was in private practice for 23 years before being appointed president of NCH Healthcare System in 2000. Along with their professional contributions, they are also very generous citizens of our community. Among their primary local philanthropic efforts, they have been contributors to NCH Healthcare System, Edison State College, the Collier County Public Library, The Naples Players and the Naples Art Association. They are also ambassadors of Gulfshore Playhouse. So there you have it on Dr. Allen and Dr. Marla Weiss, both bringing focus and dedication to everything they do and give.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 United States, however, are banned from drilling anywhere within 125 miles of the coast. This is a mess, both from an environmental standpoint and a geopolitical standpoint, says Mark Glavine, a former State Department official who specialized in international environmental issues. The oil could be just what is needed to prop up the Castro regime financially. And we have no assurances that this consortium of various multinational companies will adhere to strict safety standards. According to reports from Cuba, the drilling rig would be built by the Chinese, owned by Italians and leased by the Spanish. What so perplexes so many people is why the Obama administration is not fighting more vigorously to stop this venture. Truthfully, there is probably only so much (the administration) can do, says Mr. Glavine. But this sends an odd mixture of signals. Sometimes, you just have to make a symbolic show to make your point. I have been causing grief to the State Department, insists William Reilly, who headed the EPA under George H.W. Bush. Mr. Reilly has said that Cubas oil exploration is something thats very important to us, I think, given that they are drilling 60 miles off Key West, so Ive asked to be invited to Cuba to talk about the report and have had my wrist slapped by the administration for raising the sensitive Cuban issue. I had to say, I dont work for you. State officials have voiced apprehension about the proposed drilling. The concern I do have off the island of Cuba the Chinese are in the process of putting rigs there, with support of the Cuban people, at least the Cuban government, Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos said recently. My guess is that (China and Cuba) probably dont have the same environmental standards we do. Those who feel less threatened by the proposed drilling say it is time that we softened our stance toward Cuba, and others who would like to see more drilling regardless of who is doing it say we need energy from any source we can get it. Proponents of the Cuban drilling say American oil companies could eventually profit from the deal. This could happen because the amount of oil is so vast, it is likely that, at some point, the resources of American oil giants will be needed to help the foreign companies who are operating so far from their home bases. According to estimates from Petroleumworld, a trade publication, there are anywhere between 5 and 20 billion barrels of recoverable oil in Cubas seabed. The publication also stated : It will take years to develop this, and Americans are on paper the best placed to profit from this oil bonanza, as producers and consumers. While many fear the potential oil boom will prop up Castros regime and perhaps even turn Cuba into another Venezuela, where the dictator Hugo Chavez has long used his nations oil wealth to retain power, others are not so fearful. Im no fan of the Castro regime, writes Andres Cala, a writer specializing in energy matters. But the embargo continues to be a useless firewall. And as exploratory drilling starts near Key West, Washington should be strategizing how to use this to Americas advantage. This is probably the best chance the U.S. has had since Fidel Castrol took over in 1959 to influence Cuban policy and its democratic future. And its also the best argument to finally overcome Floridas banana republic politics to the benefit of American companies. Ending the embargo, at least gradually, would have bipartisan support, seconded by both environmental groups and oil companies. That may be an overly optimistic view. Cuba remains one of Floridas hotbutton issues. Politicians like U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, who has announced his intention to run for the Senate, and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio are hardliners who are unlikely to be swayed to a more conciliatory stance toward the Castro regime. (Attempts to reach Mr. Mack and Mr. Rubio for comment on this issue were unsuccessful.) The arrival of the massive Chinese oil rig has been delayed. It was scheduled to arrive in Cuban waters in November, but it now appears it will be in place in late December. If that is the case, actual drilling could begin sometime in January. Cuban officials say the initial well will go down 5,600 feet. Cuba, according to its agreement with its foreign partners, will get about 60 percent of the oil that is found. That would equal about 131,000 barrels a day. As things stand now, Cuba is heavily reliant on its fellow socialist state of Venezuela for much of its oil needs. It is estimated that Venezuela provides Cuba with about 92,000 barrels a day of oil. The uncertain health of Hugo Chavez, who is being treated for cancer, has Cuban officials sweating, however. What Venezuela will be like after Mr. Chavez is gone is a cause for great concern to the Cubans. Thirty-four members of the U.S. House of Representatives have put the Cubans and their drilling partners on notice. In a letter to the Spanish firm Repsol, the members of congress noted that Repsol does business in the United States and that its alliance with Cuba could be a violation of U.S. law under the provisions of the Trading with the Enemy Act. The U.S. Coast Guard will be allowed to inspect the rig in an effort to alleviate concerns about its safety and reliability. But even with that, environmentalist say it makes little sense to allow foreign drillers to operate at roughly 60 miles from the Florida coast, while American companies must observe a limit of 125 miles. As one news report observed, if there is a blowout similar to the BP disaster in the Cuban drilling zone, Florida will be doused with oil. When oil is discovered, it will take at least three years for production to begin. And if there is an environmental disaster along the lines of the BP spill, just 60 miles from Floridas shore, it will take the state decades to recover. Even more frightening is the fact that no one can guarantee with any certainty that the state would ever recover. Indeed, this is a strange story by any standard. OILFrom page 1US COAST GUARDFire boat response crews battle the blazing remnants of the offshore oil rig Deepwater Horizon April 21, 2010. The resulting en vironmental and public relations disaster posed a significant threat to Southwest Floridas tourism and seafood industries. Research is still b eing conducted to determine the full extent of the damage. Some are concerned that Cuban drilling could lead to a similar disaster far closer to Floridas shores.

Community foundations are independent, public entities that steward philanthropic resources from institutional and individual donors to local nonprofits that are the heart of strong, vibrant communities. This past fiscal year, in addition to launching Collier 211, the Community Foundation of Collier County distributed more than $5.5 million through its numerous grant programs. In addition, the foundation directly provided $872,177 in charitable program services to our community. The foundations Center for Nonprofit Excellence has hosted 24 workshops to help nonprofits govern and manage their organizations more effectively. Its Immokalee Nonprofit Network has leveraged funds to increase scholarships for early childhood education and has also supported emergency needs programs and conducted a comprehensive survey of the needs of seniors in the Immokalee community.Community foundations represent one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy. Every state in the United States is home to at least one community foundation large and small, urban and rural that is advancing solutions to a wide range of social issues. The 2010 Columbus Survey found that despite the recession, giving by the nations 100 largest community foundations actually increased slightly in 2010 to $3.7 billion and exceeded prerecession levels seen in 2006 and 2007. Launched in 1989 through a proclamation by former president George H.W. Bush, the first Community Foundation Week included a congressional briefing about the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private and nonprofit sectors to address community problems. The Community Foundation of Collier County manages more than 490 funds established by charitable individuals and organizations.

PAGE 10 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 BY LOIS BOLINSpecial to Florida WeeklySo bare our fangs in mans behalf and the cause he is fighting for; We are glad to serve as members of Uncle Sams trappy, scrappy K-9 Corps. Arthur Roland, The K-9 CorpsNot long after the attack on Pearl Harbor, approximately 20,000 family dogs were enlisted for military service by the American Kennel Association and Dogs of Defense, organized under the U.S. Army Quartermasters Corps. Special criteria were established for dogs best suited for sentry duty, scouts, wire laying, pack and pull, mine detecting, sledding and messengers.A World War I heroLong before that, however, in 1916, a group of Yale students participating in military training were joined by a scruffy bull terrier mix looking for fun. He was dubbed Stubby for his figure, and when the boys were reassigned for final training, they took him along. Stubbys legacy as one of the most decorated war dog in U.S. history began when he was smuggled aboard a troop ship to France, where he was later wounded in no-mans land. He went on to serve in the battles at Chateau Thierry, the Marne and the Meuse-Argonne with the men of the 102nd Infantry. Stubby saved countless lives when he literally captured a German spy by the seat of his pants. In Paris, he saved a young girls life when he bolted from his masters side to knock her out of the path of a car. When he arrived in the next town, his heroic act was the buzz. Awaiting him were the towns ladies with a special coat for Stubby to wear that displayed his medals. Stubby retired in 1919 and became the unofficial mascot of Georgetown University Law School. He also received a gold medal from Gen. John Black Jack Pershing as well as life membership in the American Legion and the Red Cross. Stubby died in 1926. His remains, medals and the uniform made for him by the French women are housed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. A World War II heroLeft in a foxhole on a dirt road in New Guinea during World War II is how Smokey, the 4-pound Yorkshire terrier, began the adventure that would lead her to become WWIIs littlest soldier, earning eight battle stars through 12 missions and 18 months straight in combat. She was proclaimed Champion Mascot of the Southwest Pacific Area in 1944, but she became a true war dog hero in January 1945. When a three-day job to put a culvert over a taxi strip to accommodate communication wires proved too dangerous, exposing 40 U.S. planes to the Japanese, Smokey, who had been trained by her owner Bill Wynne, solved the problem in two minutes. She pulled a string with the wires attached through an 8-inch pipe under the runway, pawing her way through sand piled 4 inches along the 70-foot length of the pipe. Smokey ultimately served in five theaters of operation before she died in 1957. A special monument in her honor stands in Cleveland, Ohio. The Bow Wow Kennel in NaplesRecent research uncovered a WWII diary from the Naples Army Air Field, a sub-base of the Buckingham Army Air Field. That diary revealed that on May 18, 1944, the NAAF Bow Wow Department received two tired war dogs, Skippy and Jack, who were eager to rest in their newly built kennel before assuming their sentry duties. On Friday, Nov. 11, visitors can learn more about war dogs and other Naples WWII trivia when the Naples Airport Authority hosts the opening celebration of the Museum of Military Memorabilia. Activities take place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Numerous WWIIera military vehicles and aircraft will be on display. Naples Backyard History and Toastmasters of Naples will host the finals of their fall speech contest, 011 Spirit of America: Floridas Role in WWII from 6-7 p.m. The contest was conducted to raise awareness of the collaborative efforts for the WWII veterans oral history project. For more information about the new Museum of Military Memorabilia and related activities on Nov. 11, call Greg Garcia at 682-0461.

The tradition began during the 2005-2006 school year, when teacher Annette Castor asked her class to donate to us instead of buying presents for her for the holidays or other special occasions. She also asked them to think about a person in whose memory they would like to make their gift. Since then, each years class has found creative ways to raise money for the cause. Some children donate a portion of their birthday money; others hold lemonade and bake sales, ask their family members and friends to contribute and take up collections at events. The father of one student even built a special collection box in which the kids deposit their gifts. The children also concoct fun ways to count all the booty they collect. Sometimes that involves stacking coins and bills in interesting towers; other times it means dividing up the goods in different piles or baskets to be carefully counted by little hands. Ms. Castor captures the entire process on film for what is really the fun part for us: the presentation of the gift to representatives of our staff. Ms. Castor talks about how the students worked to raise their donation and then passes a microphone to her young charges. They tell us the name of the person theyre honoring with their gift; some tell a story about what happened to the person they loved. (Our hearts break with pride, joy and sadness right about here.) The big moment for the kids is the announcement of how much theyve raised. The designated loot haulers bring us heavy bags and baskets of money, all carefully counted and labeled. Over the years, Ms. Castors classes have raised more than $3,000 to benefit our programs. November is National Hospice Month and National Philanthropy Month. We can think of no more fitting gesture than to thank Avows littlest philanthropists. They fill our hearts with gratitude in a very special way. Kit Chamberlain is director of strategic communications at Avow Hospice.KIDSFrom page 1 The Village on Venetian Bay will host its first-ever Festival of Trees to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County from Nov. 25-Dec. 11.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 A15 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATESaddam Husseins unfortunate doppelgnger Mohamed Bishr, an Egyptian man bearing a remar kable resemblance to the late Iraqi dictator, claimed in October that he had been briefly kidnapped after spurning an offer to portray Saddam in a porn video. Mr. Bishr's adult sons told the al-Ahram newspaper in Alexandria that their father had been offered the equivalent of $330,000. (In 2002, according to a 2010 Washington Post report, the CIA briefly contemplated using a Saddam impersonator in a porn video as a tool to publicly embarrass Saddam into relinquishing power prior to the U.S. invasion.) Cant possibly be true Apparently, officials at the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport felt the need for professional guidance on rebranding their facility to (as one put it) carry it into the modern era, and so hired the creative talents of Big Communications of Birmingham, Ala., to help. Big's suggested name for the airport, announced to great fanfare in September: Chattanooga Airport. Elsie Pawlow, a senior citizen of Edmonton, Alberta, filed a $100,000 lawsuit in September against Kraft Canada Inc., parent company of the makers of Stride Gum, which brags that it is ridiculously long-lasting. Ms. Pawlow complained that she had to scrub down her dentures after using Stride, to dig out specks of gum a condition that caused her to experience depression for approximately 10 minutes. Colleen O'Neal filed a lawsuit recently against United/Continental airlines over the post traumatic stress disorder she said she has suffered since a 20-minute flight in October 2009 in which, during turbulent weather, the plane banked from side to side and lost altitude. In August, a state court in Frankfurt, Germany, awarded 3,000 euros (about $4,200) to Magnus Gaefgen, 36, on his claim that during a 2002 police interrogation, officers threat(ened) ... violence against him if he did not disclose what he knew about a missing 11-year-old boy who was later found dead. In 2003, Mr. Gaefgen was convicted of the boy's murder and is serving a life sentence, but the court nevertheless thought he should be compensated for his pain and suffering. Names in the newsThe man stabbed to death in Calgary, Alberta, in August: the 29-year-old Mr. Brent Stabbed Last. Among the family members of Jared Loughner (the man charged with shooting U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in January) who were interviewed by authorities regarding mental illnesses in the Loughner family: Loughner's distant cousin Judy Wackt. Passed away in May in Fredericksburg, Va.: retired Army Sgt. Harry Palm. Charged with murder in Decatur, Ill., in September: a (predictably underrespected) 15-year-old boy named Shitavious Cook. Implants in the news The British recreation firm UK Paintb all announced in August that a female customer had been injured after a paintball shot hit her in the chest, causing her silicone breast implant to explode. The company recommended that paintball facilities supply better chest protection for women with implants. The Moscow, Russia, newspaper M osk ovsky Komsomolets reported in October that a local woman's life had been saved by her state-of-the-art silicone breast implant. Her husband had stabbed her repeatedly in the chest during a domestic argument, but the implant's gel supposedly deflected the blade. Ultimate catfighting In Charlotte, N.C., in October, a female motorist w as arrested for ramming another woman's car after that woman said Good morning to the motorist's boyfriend as the women dropped kids off at school. In Arbutus, Md., in October, a woman w as arr ested for throwing bleach and disinfectant at another woman in a Walmart (an incident in which at least 19 bystanders sought medical assistance). Police learned that the arrestee's child's father had become the boyfriend of the bleachtargeted woman. In a hospital in Upland, Pa., in October t wo pregnant women (ages 21 and 22) were arrested after injuring a woman, 36, and a girl, 15, in a brawl inside a patients room. North Korea cruisinThe North Koreans called it a cruise ship and tried to establish a business model to attract wealthy tourists from China, but to the New York Times reporter on board in September, the 40-year-old boat was more like a tramp steamer on which vacationers paid the equivalent of $470 to "enjoy" five days and nights at sea. More than 200 people boarded the dim and musty vessel, sometimes eight to a room with floor mattresses and iffy bathrooms. The onboard entertainment consisted not of shuffleboard but of decks of cards and karaoke. Dinner resembled a mess hall at an American Army base, but with leftovers thrown overboard (even though some of it was blown back on deck). The trip was capped, wrote the Times, by the boat's crashing into the pier as it docked, knocking a corner of the structure into a pile of rubble.

Is your desk a disaster and your closet in disarray? If youre like most of us, the answer is yes. A disorganized life can be stressful. Getting organized will free up more time in the day and make your home more relaxing. California Closets at Miromar Design Center brings solutions to closets, pantries, garages, offices and more to help clients get organized and stay that way. Order and organization are the finishing touches to a professionally decorated home, says owner Suzi Woods. The right storage and closet design makes a home more livable. An organized closet makes the morning routine more enjoyable. Professional Organizer Marla Ottenstein agrees and adds that knowing what you need begins with a little work. The process of sorting, tossing, folding and hanging everything up in groups skirts, slacks, tops, sweaters, shoes, handbags needs to be done before the closet contractor arrives so that he or she can design a closet system that fits the clients specific needs. Ms. Ottenstein says getting and staying organized can be done in just 20 minutes a day, but suggests that you need to breakdown the big projects into smaller tasks to accomplish your goals. Dont try to tackle the seemingly insurmountable mess all at once. She calls this The 20-minute Solution. Whether its a closet filled with outdated clothes and worn-out shoes, a home office piled high with paperwork or a pantry groaning with cans and jars, Ottenstein says the first step is to decide what to keep and then to create a specific place for it to go. Most of us embrace the inherent desire to live and work in an organized and neat environment, she says. It is how we achieve this goal that makes the difference.Discover the secretsMs. Ottenstein and California Closets invite the public to a free seminar about organization at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, at Miromar Design Center.

Team captains selected their players, many of whom are state and nationally ranked and teaching professionals with college and/or tour experience. Pete Minarich, director of tennis at Pelican Marsh, heads the Naples team and believes the growth and development of tennis clubs and players in the Naples area gives his team an advantage over the Fort Myers team. Its my job to field the absolute best players on each of the 18 courts, he says. If I can do that, it will come down to the last three or four matches, but Im confident we will have the edge. Captaining this years Fort Myers team is Jeff Timmer, director of tennis at Colonial Country Club. Their successful record over the past several years definitely makes the Naples team the favorite going into the tournament, he says. However, we have a few surprises in store for this years challenge. Several hundred spectators are expected to watch the high-level competition, which is sponsored by Ritzman Tennis, Allen Systems Group Software Solutions and Carrabbas Italian Grill of Bonita Springs.

Dr. Edward Humbert Orthopedic Surgeon Bob Andrews Joint Surgery Patient ORTHO FACTSComprehensive All-Star Total Joint Program More than 6,000 orthopedic procedures completed annuallyCaring people, caring for New Knees Gave Me Back My Sea LegsWhen the pain and limited mobility in his knees started interfering with his woodworking and boating hobbies, Bob Andrews knew he needed to take action. A friend told him about orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Edward Humbert. Dr. Humbert determined that Bobs knees had deteriorated to the point that joint replacement was the only option. After Dr. Humbert replaced both his knees, Bob began to feel the benets of his new joints. Bob is now living pain-free and has resumed all of his favorite activities. Best of all, he is back on the water, alternating between his love of sailing and cruising along in his power boats. I have no pain at all, Bob says. I can get around much easier on my boats and get up and down a ladder, no problem. To read more of Bobs story, please visit CTS The largest orthopedic program in Southwest Florida

PAGE 26 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 Individual achievements and Smart Rooms were the focus of the 53rd annual NCH Healthcare System Ball: This Is My Hospital, which took place Oct. 28, at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples. More than 500 friends of NCH came together to recognize Thelma Hodges as honorary chair, to award Dr. Carl Liebert the title of Physician of the Year and to showcase our Nurses of Excellence: Peggy Munson, North Naples Nurse of the Year; Patricia Haines, Downtown Nurse of the Year; Rising Stars Michelle Dettorre at North Naples and Kaitlen Magdalener downtown; and Support Super Stars Rolin Bastien at North Naples and Colleen Boyle downtown. While we hailed our NCH superstars, we also took time to marvel at the latest technological advancements at our system. Smart Rooms integrate wireless technology and medical software. Starting this winter, the first ones will be installed on the fifth and sixth floors of the Baker Tower at North Naples, and then throughout the entire system. The Smart Room senses when a caregiver enters the room and then introduces that person (care technician, nurse, therapist, physician, dietary or environmental service individual) by flashing the persons picture, name and title on a flat screen TV thats easily viewed by the patient and their family. Simultaneously, outside the patients room, a smaller screen informs anyone passing by that a caregiver is with the patient. This same hallway screen also indicates if the patient is in isolation or has any other special needs. The Smart Room offers the patient educational videos selected for his/ her needs. Patients with diabetes, for instance, would view videos on diet, exercise and medications. For nurses and physicians, a second flat screen above the patients headboard indicates clinical data selected by the clinician, plus the entire medical record. The nurses view, for instance, might show which medication should be given, while a physicians might show recent lab data. A seamless and secure integration of information, the Smart Room also allows a physician to keep current on a patients condition, whether at home, in the office or somewhere else on the hospital campus, any time, any day of the week. Now back to the folks who use this technology and make the care possible. Individual achievementsWe begin with Mrs. Hodges, who arrived in Naples in 1955 as one of the first three employees for a new hospital still under construction. She was here as a charge nurse more than a half century ago when we opened with 50 beds and 10 physicians serving 5,000 Neapolitans. Over her 21-year nursing career, she worked in central supply, surgery and the ER. Following her retirement, Mrs. Hodges continued with the hospital auxiliary and has accumulated more than 15,000 hours (the equivalent of another eightplus years of employment). She claims to be the first to truly say, This is MY hospital. This year, we had 86 nominees and nine finalists for Physician of the Year. The finalists were Drs. Ken Bookman, David Greider, John Lewis, Deborah Lopez, Carlos Quintero, Jack Ryan, James Talano and Todd Vedder, as well as Carl Liebert, the ultimate winner. Dr. Liebert has been on the medical staff for 25 years and in 2009 was the founding chair of the Physician Excellence Committee focusing on peer review. Dr. Paul Dernbach, president of the medical staff, initiated the Carl Liebert Quality Award, given for the first time this year to Dr. Greider for his leadership in quality and continuing medical education for the entire medical staff. In all, it was a wonderful evening supported by the NCH Foundation staff to recognize those who helped us get where we are today and those who will lead us tomorrow. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System.

University of Florida researchers are de v eloping a gene therapy technique that could help both humans and horses fight osteoarthritis, a debilitating condition that causes inflammation and deterioration of the joints. The goal is to create a one-time treatment that works long term. The research team received a oneyear, $900,000 grant from the National Institute of Healths National Institute of Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Disease to fund the work. The new effort will expand laboratory studies into trials that better approximate osteoarthritis in humans. The work will involve the use adenoassociated viruses, or AAV, as vehicles to deliver genetic material to the joints of horses, where it would produce a therapeutic protein directly at the site of the disease. Were uniquely poised to do this study, because UF has a leading program in equine medicine and research and is one of the homes of AAV technology, says principal investigator Steven Ghivizzani, a professor of orthopedics and rehabilitation in the UF College of Medicine, and a member of the UF Genetics Institute. Researchers at UFs Powell Gene Therapy Center are among the pioneers of AAV technology and gene therapy applications for a number of diseases.About osteoarthritisThe most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, a chronic condition that affects weight-bearing joints such as the knees and hips.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 NEWS A27 causing bones to rub and resulting in pain, stiffness and swelling. There is no cure for osteoarthritis. About 27 million Americans over the age of 25 have the disease, reports the National Institutes of Health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention places economic cost of arthritis and other rheumatic conditions at close to $130 billion a year. Joint replacement surgery can help ease the disabling effects of the condition. Medicines that target osteoarthritis mostly offer limited symptom relief. In addition, those drugs can have unwanted consequences. Corticosteroid injections, for example, which are given to both people and horses, suppress other healthy activities in the joint, such as processes important for healing. The injections also have to be administered repeatedly, which increases the chance of infection. In contrast, gene therapies currently in development would require a onetime treatment and would not hinder the bodys healing processes. Unlike existing drugs, these therapies are expected to address symptoms and have the added benefit of changing the course of the disease. Previous studies in small animals such as rats demonstrated that delivery of the gene therapy resulted in meaningful levels of gene expression within affected joints. Researchers will examine how that translates to larger joints of horses, which are more similar to human joints in terms of size, tissue structure and weight-bearing stance. Researchers will use techniques such as arthroscopy, imaging studies such as MRI and X-ray, as well as hands-on clinical evaluations to check for inflammation and cartilage degradation. Motioncapture analysis will help with evaluation of changes in gait, which is a good measure of pain. We hope this will be at least the first step in a therapy that will benefit both people and animals, UF College of Veterinary Medicine and co-investigator on the study Patrick Colahan, a boardcertified equine surgeon. It has the potential to help lots of different species.

Lower back pain is the most prevalent cause of disability in people under the age of 45. Chronic back pain is characterized by a persistent, ongoing discomfort, whereas acute back pain is sharper and is frequently associated with trauma or overuse of the muscles and soft tissue in the back and neck, explains orthopedic surgeon Robert Biscup of Physicians Regional Healthcare System. Dr. Biscup specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery and revision spine surgery to correct previous, unsuccessful surgeries. Degenerative spine disease is a chronic form of arthritis that is common as we age and can affect any part of the spine. Symptoms can include back and leg pain, numbness, weakness, balance problems, bowel and bladder dysfunction, poor posture, inability to walk distances and any combination of these. We all get this at some point, Dr. Biscup says. Its part of the process that leads us to go see the doctor. Also related is a very common condition known as spinal stenosis, which is caused by narrowing of the spinal canal to the point where circulation is compromised. Causes can include a herniated disc, bone spurs or a shifted vertebra.Stand up straightA key to maintaining a healthy back is posture. Everything from our waist up is a balancing act, Dr. Biscup says. Our heads weigh a lot and sit atop our spines like a bowling ball on a stick, he says adding that slouching can cause muscle tears and other problems. All the parts of our body from the waist to the neck are working together to keep everything in balance. The most common treatments for back pain are over-the-counter and prescription oral medications. However, these deal primarily with the pain. Physical therapy can help relieve back pain by getting your posture back and strengthening your muscles. In order for it to work, though, it needs to be difficult exercise or stretching, Dr. Biscup says. Sufferers also can seek pain management such as epidural blocks or other injections, but they should be aware of potential side effects. When all else fails, surgery is the best option, Dr. Biscup says, adding that minimally invasive techniques are performed through small incisions using a microscope or endoscope. In most cases, these procedures replace the need for a much larger operation and can be performed under local or spinal anesthesia. Less invasive procedures reduce recovery time, which can last months or even years with traditional techniques. And if the procedure doesnt work for any reason, traditional surgery options still exist. The bottom line, he concludes, is that you cannot put off back pain. It typically does not go away and only worsens with age. The sooner you seek treatment, the sooner you will be able to get back to enjoying life. Dr. Biscup will discuss treatment options for back pain at a free seminar from 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at Physicians Regional-Pine Ridge. Call (800) 533-7313 to RSVP.Got an aching back?

T amiami Trail. 239.992.1422 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA30 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 PET TALES BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickIts a fact of life that cats scratch, and its good for them to do so. But you dont have to live with shredded furniture or ratty-looking walls and flooring. Its easy to teach a cat to use a scratching post as long as you understand what hes looking for in the way of communication, claw conditioning and fulfillment of his need to stretch and exercise. Scratching is first and foremost a means of communication. Your cat is saying, I, Purrcy, was here. Look how big I am, and how high up I can scratch. Thats why cats like to scratch in places that will be seen by other cats; think of it as feline graffiti. Scratching leaves traces of scent, undetectable by people but perceptible to other cats, deposited from glands on the paws. We dont know exactly what message theyre sending, but its obviously important. So scratching on a post stuck off in a dark corner makes no sense to a cat. Hes going to look for an object to scratch that has a much more prominent place in his living area, and that may well be the arm of your sofa. Scratching also keeps claws and paws in shape. It sheds the dead keratin that sheathes the claws, making way for a new covering, and it exercises the muscles in the legs and paws that are so important to a cats agility. Stretching is a big part of scratching, and we all know how good that feels. So instead of trying to stop your cat from scratching, encourage him to scratch on objects that are convenient for you and attractive to him. The best scratching post is tall enough for your cat to extend his body full-length when he scratches. A little onefooter might be OK for a kitten, but a full-grown cat needs a post that is at least three feet high to allow him to perform the stretches that are part of his enjoyment of scratching. The post can be upright or angled as long as its an appropriate length. You also need to think about whats covering the post. Forget carpet! For one thing, cats dont see why the carpet on the post is okay to scratch but not the carpet on the floor. For another, materials like rope, sisal, hemp and burlap offer a lot more texture and shreddability, making them more pleasurable for the cat to scratch. You want him to think that the post, the cat tree and other acceptable scratching items hemp mats, for instance are so great that he doesnt even want to scratch anywhere else. Choose a sturdy post. The fastest way to turn your cat off of using a scratching post is to buy one that falls over on him while hes climbing or scratching on it. Provide more than one post and dont hide them away. Remember that cats like to show off their scratching prowess. If your cat is making his mark on a certain piece of furniture or pair of drapes, place the scratching post nearby so hell have a better option for giving his claws a workout. Put one in front of a window so your cat can check out the birds and squirrels while hes scratching. Encourage your cat to use the post by running your fingers up and down it or brushing a feather along the side of it. The motion will attract your cat and entice him to scratch. A little catnip, judiciously placed on top of the post and rubbed into the rope or sisal, may also gain his attention. Spraying the pheromone product Feliway on the object you want scratched really encourages its use, as well. Be sure to praise your cat or give him a treat every time you see him using the post. If you do your part and give your cat what he wants, hell do his and leave your things alone. Scratch This!Provide your cat with options and your furniture will be safer Cats love materials such as sisal that provide them with a really good scratching experience.

Rould Folk Song Index # 5249 We musicians must stick together. Quote attributed to Yehudi Menuhin as he gave money to an organ grinder Il nya pas de hors-texte. (There is no such a thing as out-of-the-text.) Jacques DerridSo, will we ever meet IRL? You know, f2f? Organ grinders used to be in meat space. Until midnight on New Years Eve in 1935, when the licenses of the last 51 organ grinders expired. After this expiration, the Molinari Company in Brooklyn, source of their street organs, crushed its remaining inventory into splinters. If only that organ grinder hadnt come to Prescott, Ariz. If only young Fiorello La Guardia had not been mocked after the arrival to his birthplace of an Italian street musician and his monkey. Said by many to be the greatest mayor of NYC, the 5-foot tall La Guardia the tough-minded liberal Republican Episcopalian Freemason with a Jewish mother and an atheistic Italian father army bandmaster, eliminated Big Apple organ grinders. Too many kids had laughed and taunted: Wheres your monkey, Fiorello? In 1970, the ban was lifted. In 1975, Joe Bush tied himself to his white-faced capuchin monkey named George. This went on for three weeks. They were locked together in his study, screaming at each other all night. They finally reached an understanding, but Joes wife left him. George stayed. For 15 years, he and Joe did their organ grinding act in NYC. When George died, Joe freeze dried him and put him, paws extended, on a shelf in his study. Joe, well paid and respected, continued the act with George II. Organ grinders, with their street organs and monkeys, were seen by many as picturesque and romantic. For others they were persons of ill repute, indolent and vicious. Despised as beggars by some, the money given was seen as a bribe begging silence. I have never really been face to face with an organ grinder. I have come closest to the experience via a jack-in-the-box surprise pop up. But why a clown instead of a monkey? Or a weasel? Did you wonder about that, too?And what about the Marvel comic telepathic Aboriginal mutant, another called Jack-in-the-Box, whose body parts putrified and fell off when he used his powers? How could he be nonchalant in the face of this surprising loss? Did the parts just keep growing back, popping up over and over? Freud understood the swoon of presence and absence. His 18-month-old nephews game with a wooden reel tied to a string taught him. The child threw the reel away, saying fort, gone. Then he would pull the reel back, exclaiming da, here. The game was endless delight for him. And where is the real reel? Look. Here and gone, surprising, singing, monkeying around. We magic musicians have to stick together.

PERSONAL APPROACHFlorida Board Certied Marital & Family Law AttorneysAll aspects of complex marital and family law at both the trial and appellate levelSpecializing in pre-nuptials, post-nuptials and Collaborative Divorces MONEY & INVESTINGThe connection between crude and foodEnergy is a huge component of the U.S. economy and of any industrialized economy. It also accounts for 12 percent of the market capitalization of the S&P 500, 70 percent of the Goldman Sachs Commodity Index and, most likely, is a position traded long or short in a diversified managed futures portfolio. In fact, a market recap on the close of any day will generally include the stock indices and select commodities, especially U.S. crude. In recent months, crude has been highly correlated in price movement with the S&P 500; when crude is up, often so has been the S&P and vice versa. Crude is a commodity which, like copper, is a bellwether of international economic activity. World GDP looking stronger? Then, copper and crude will generally be looking stronger, and equity indices would be stronger. Crude is a commodity in limited supply but facing increasing demand. Secondary and tertiary recovery techniques in the U.S. are helpful to get more crude out of existing wells, but just on the margin. Big shale natural gas discoveries in the U.S. have dramatically increased supply of natural gas but they have not changed U.S. dependency on crude used in gasoline. Longer term, unless there is a major energy breakthrough outside of fossil fuels, the U.S. will continue to be dependent on foreign crude for a significant portion of its gasoline needs. As to foreign supply, some of the worlds largest existing crude reserves and recent crude discoveries are in countries and locations that entail great geopolitical risk. Demand for foreign crude will be largely a function of developing countries growth, e.g. growth in China and India as they are key buyers of crude on the margin. Besides these well-known macro supply and demand factors for crude, some lesser-acknowledged issues might have a big impact on crude prices: the political concerns within the Arab states. The rulers of many of these states dont want a repeat of the 2011 Arab Spring in 2012 or beyond. They dont want to be overthrown, too. And so preventive measures are being taken to placate its citizens. As you might recall, 2011 saw the liberation of citizens of several Arab countries and one such liberation introduced serious military actions against Muammar Gaddafi and his supporters in Libya. Egypt had a major overthrow of its repressive government after the struggles that started in Yemen. Some would argue that the popular movements were ignited by spontaneous political courage and organization through Facebook postings. Others would argue that these liberating movements really found their courage to face oppressive military forces after food prices had skyrocketed in 2010, to a point, that by 2010 year end, year-over-year food price changes were as much as 25 percent in some of the developing countries. It was tough for citizens to swallow such an increase if 50-70 percent of their income was allocated to food for their families. Very hungry people tend to find courage that they previously lacked when their stomachs were full. What has happened in Egypt, Yemen and Libya is not lost on sister countries. The common theme of these countries is a delivery of economic relief to its citizens; spending a little more money seems like a really good idea when the alternative is potential political uprising. A sample of ruling government actions to prevent more Arab Springs is as follows: Saudi Arabia is to spend $43 billion on its citizens; Kuwait gave citizens free food for one year and a special onetime lump of cash; Algerias civil servants received an increase in pay over 30 percent; UAE upped its infrastructure spending; civil servants in Qatar received a big salary increase; and Egypt got $24 billion (combined) from several Arab states to help fund the new Egypt. Now, a one-time stipend might not leave the ruling class feeling pinched, but the reality is that one dosage generally leads to two to three to more and over time, impacting national budgets. Over time, these countries may possibly seek higher crude export prices to balance their national budgets. If there was a sudden drop in food prices, which alleviates pressure on the Arab citizenry, Arab government subsidies and salary increases might be minimized. But, so far in 2011, significantly lower agricultural commodity prices are not very probable. And, as the southern hemisphere countries enter their planting season, international weather patterns seem to remain challenged. Availability and pricing of crude and agricultural commodities will probably remain a critical element of world economics and world politics and will be a key component behind international equity market valuations for a long time to come. For investors counting on political stability in the Middle East, the deciding factor will not be the size of the ruling partys military nor communications through Facebook; it will be whether the people in these countries have food. The world is not just looking at a growing population and more hungry mouths; the equity markets are looking at oil-exporting regimes wanting to assure their continued reigns and which will have no alternative but to pay any price for food and any price for agricultural lands. Price might ration some commodities, but food is not one of them. Jeannette Rohn Showalter, CFA, can be reached at 571-8896. E-mail to receive mid-week market commentaries.

SHOPPESFrom page 1Parson Masonry, a 25-year-old company whose owner started as an unskilled laborer and overcame health problems, poor reading skills and racial discrimination, won the 17th annual Southwest Florida Blue Chip Community Business Award recently. Jay Parson, owner of Parson Masonry, accepted the award on behalf of the Fort Myers-based company. The program, coordinated and sponsored by BB&T-Oswald Trippe and Company and BB&T Bank, recognized small business owners who have triumphed over adversity and shared their stories so other entrepreneurs can learn from their experiences. Joan Brock who lost her vision and then her husband, ending up as a blind, single parent appeared as this years keynote speaker for the award program held at Harborside Event Center. Mr. Parson faced an array of obstacles along the road to success as a small business owner. One of 13 children born to poor sharecroppers in South Carolina, Mr. Parson moved to Fort Myers at age 16, taking whatever jobs he could to send money to his impoverished family. He worked at various trades before discovering he wanted to become a block mason. Aspiring to become a subcontractor, he watched masons at work sites and practiced what they were doing, although some told him to leave their tools alone so he wouldnt turn the handles black. He couldnt read well, but was comfortable with numbers and learned to read blueprints. He gradually mastered the trade, took classes and hired a tutor to improve his reading and writing skills. During the 1970s, he overcame a nervous breakdown and alcoholism to pursue his dream. He eventually became a subcontractor and started his business with one truck and a few tools, buying more equipment as he was able. Although some contractors refused to pay him or took advantage of him because of his poor reading and writing skills, he kept persevering, dipping into his savings to pay his employees and going without pay when necessary. His business gradually grew and about 20 years ago, his wife, Gloria, joined him as an office manager. They operate the business, continue to live in the Dunbar community and have been instrumental in providing training and work opportunities to many people who might not otherwise have them. In recent years, Mr. Parson suffered from blood clots in his legs and lungs and also underwent total knee replacement. In each case, he returned to work as quickly as he could. Where he once took a week to build a house, he now has the resources and manpower to finish two houses a day. He no longer has difficulty making payroll, grossing about $650,000 annually, the result of his patient, ethical approach to business and his faith in God.

PAGE 38 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 THE MOTLEY FOOL Bonds Do DropMany people assume that while stocks can drop in value, bonds wont. Yet there have been plenty of big drops in the fixedincome world. Bonds have the reputation of being investments that can stabilize portfolios, reducing fluctuations. But when interest rates and bond yields rise, you should be prepared for some sizable losses on your bond holdings. (As interest rates rise, prices of existing bonds tend to fall, as there are suddenly more attractive, newer bonds available.) Rising interest rates are not an immediate concern today. Interest rates are near historic lows, and the Fed has vowed to not raise its key rates for two years. Still, the fact that rates are near record lows does suggest that they will eventually start moving up again. Rising interest rates will be bad news for interest-sensitive sectors of the economy, such as mortgage lending and real estate. With the subprime lending crisis having forced lenders to tighten their credit standards, rising mortgage rates will price some potential buyers out of a home purchase, What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare?

The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Risky BetsQWhat are derivatives? K.P., Norwich, Conn.ATheyre financial instruments that include options, futures contracts, warrants and more. Some are very creative devices. While shares of stock represent real ownership stakes in real companies, derivatives often represent contracts, not assets. They derive their value from the performance of other assets, such as stocks, bonds or commodities. Derivatives permit sophisticated investors to hedge their bets, engage in arbitrage (profiting from differences in prices), lock in prices and use leverage (i.e. invest with borrowed money). For example, several derivatives may be based on a single bundle of home mortgages, with one representing the bundles interest payments and another representing its principal payments. Since they will react differently to interest rate changes, they each will likely appeal to a different kind of investor. Derivatives are typically used by large, institutional investors to boost their overall return or to hedge against risk in their portfolios. Many can be very risky, though, and when used aggressively can result in investors losing more than their initial investment.QWhat can I read to learn more about financial planning?

This in turn could force sellers to lower asking prices to make them more affordable for prospective buyers. Rising rates are a nightmare for homebuilders, which could face not only lower demand but also higher carrying costs for their inventory. For investors with bond-heavy portfolios, especially retirees on limited incomes, falling bond prices may translate into considerable pain. Its a good reminder, however, that even the most conservative portfolios can benefit from diversification. Even if you need current income, bonds arent the only way to get it. Dividend-paying stocks and real estate investment trusts are just a few of the alternatives that provide steady income without the same level of interest rate risk that bonds have. If falling bond prices have you flustered, you may need a retirement portfolio overhaul.

(I lived in Pennsylv ania, and Walmart hadnt expanded there yet.) We went to Walmart on a Thursday evening, and it was packed with shoppers. I said to myself, As soon as I get home, Im buying stock in this company. Guess what? Thats right I let the opportunity slip through my fingers. If Id bought 100 shares then, they would be more than 50,000 shares today, and I would really be retired. O.N., online The Fool Responds: Ouch! In mid1975, shares of Walmart traded at price of $0.03 per share. (The price then was really $24.50, but adjusting for stock splits makes that $0.03.) With a stock price recently near $55 per share, your 51,200 shares would be worth $2.8 million, all from an investment of less than $3,000. Your story hurts, but its a great reminder of how we can profit in stocks. Much less spectacular stocks can serve us well, too, as can simple index funds.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 BUSINESS B7 Signals. The couple offers the best in smoked meats from Scotland to Southwest Florida, including organic and grass-fed-only meat. That includes fowl or farm animal of just about any variety. Surrounded by other merchants doing a snappy pre-Thanksgiving business at the Lakes Park Farmers Market in Lee County (he can be found elsewhere on the southwest coast as well), Mr. Christie takes a moment to think, then brightens suddenly. Ten percent off everything! he declares magnanimously. For Big Guys or Little Guys, either one, the day after Thanksgiving is the traditional shopping kick-off for the winter holidays. Beginning as early as midnight on Friday, Nov. 25, the operating principle is clear: Sell by having a sale. Or a giveaway, or longer hours, or a price undercut, or something else. Or in some cases, nothing at all except the art of contrast. Our position is that were unique, were not traditional retail, we dont have to adhere to all the hype about Black Friday or Valentines Day or anything like that, says Gene Vaccaro, general manager of Flamingo Island Flea Market in Bonita Springs. Were dealing with 800,000 items that are different than any other retailers. We dont fall prey to national shopping trends at all. Echoing those sentiments, a woman at Zazou, a womens clothier with shops in Bonita Springs and Naples said, Ive been here 14 years and weve never done anything. But most are not mercantile Scrooges. Many of our shops will probably be offering sales or specials for Black Friday or the season, although we wont (as the overseer), says Hope Petkus, the events coordinator at Fishermens Village in the festively decorated heart of Punta Gorda. But we quietly started decorating for (Christmas and Hanukkah) back on Oct. 15. At Brooks Brothers in Naples, theyre not competing with other clothiers to provide the biggest or best deal, says Meeta Alexander, the assistant manager. Instead, theyre honoring and celebrating their devoted clientele, in particular. We have early-hour shopping the doors open at 8 a.m. on that Friday and we have sale prices and a special gift before noon (for those in the store at the time), along with an additional percentage off for our preferred customers (usually 15 to 20 percent off), she explains. Elsewhere, other merchants are getting into the spirit, too. The formula for success gets more complicated with the Biggies, of course Target and Best Buy, for example, will open their doors at midnight. Each offers other incentives to shoppers, in addition to sales. Just as Walmart does. According to the websites of those companies, at Best Buy through Christmas customers can take advantage of free shipping when they buy products on-line, no matter how small their orders. And at Target and Walmart, if a customer finds a product he or she already purchased in those stores listed at a lower price elsewhere a nightmare experience, according to Walmart the company will make up the difference. Walmart, out of Bentonville, Ark., even pitches it with a guarantee in its online promotion. This year, Walmart turns that nightmare into a holiday dream with the Christmas Price Guarantee. Heres how it works: If a customer buys an eligible product at Walmart anytime between Nov. 1 and Dec. 25, and then finds that same product advertised for less at another store, Walmart will give that customer a gift card for the difference through Dec. 25. Guaranteed. Theres a paradox shared by all merchants who embrace the Black Friday concept, no matter how big or small: If you sell it for less, youll make a lot more. So the question becomes, how much can you afford to give away without shooting yourself in the foot? At Harley-Davidson of Naples and Fort Myers, the answer is a lot, apparently. The Black Friday sales event for the made-in-America two wheelers kicks off at 6 a.m., a good get-up-and-go-buy hour in energetic America. Harley Davidson jump-starts the morning with two giveaways: a pancake breakfast (gotta have those calories if youre gonna ride a Harley) and $20 gift cards a whole bunch of them. In Naples, the first 100 customers through the door get a $20 card. In Fort Myers, the first 150 get a card. Theres free gift-wrapping, and a gift of $75 value for every qualifying $300 purchase, according to a press release. But the company is not stopping there. Customers who come in can enter a contest to win items in the Ultimate Harley Holiday. Those include a big ol honkin 2012 Harley-Davidson 1200 custom motorcycle with extras, and roundtrip airfare to, ah, Milwaukee along with a two-night, three-day stay at the Iron Horse Hotel. And a tour of the Harley museum there. Harleys never been restrained, unlike Brooks Brothers, founded 1818 by Henry Sands Brooks as the first fashion emporium in the country. At Brooks Brothers, they earn their money the old-fashioned way they offer a sale and provide 15 or 20 percent off on top of that to preferred customers, those who have spent money at Brooks Brothers in the past. We have a lot of grandparents who live elsewhere and come to visit here for Thanksgiving, and their families bring them out for shopping, says Ms. Alexander. Thats when they do their holiday gift-buying. But she also theorizes that this year, the signs of an improved attitude in buyers and in the market are more prevalent than they were in recent years. I have a strong feeling many retailers should do very well this year. When the stock market is down, as it has been, people are worried and they wont spend money, but when it starts up, when its on a roll in the minds of those here in Naples, people here become so very comfortable. And not just in Naples, but everywhere else on the coast, too, she says. And now theyre tired of holding back and holding back. They want to shop and enjoy. They want to go home for Christmas prepared. Black Friday will likely be a betterthan-usual chance to do that this year.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 REAL ESTATE B19 Home staging has become the secret to selling a home only its not really a secret anymore. Joanne Gaylord, owner of Showhomes Naples, says the entire mindset of home selling has shifted, and investing in home staging to help sell a home has become mainstream. Showhomes uses live-in home managers to occupy, stage and care for houses while they are on the market for sale. A recent Showhomes Realtor survey showed that 96 percent of real estate professionals who responded said fully staged homes sell for higher prices than vacant houses. Another survey by the Real Estate Staging Association found that staged homes spent 78 percent less time on the market than the time they spent before staging. Here are 10 tips from Showhomes that work for any home: 1. Start with curb appeal. Potential buyers will drive right by your house if they dont like what they see. Remove yard toys, bikes or other clutter. Keep the yard mowed and trimmed, re-mulch beds and add flowers for some color. 2. All buyers pass through the front door. Clean and repaint the door if needed, and add a healthy plant and new doormat. 3. Pack up everything but the basics. Small decorative items distract from a room and can make it appear clutter ed. Use larger dec orative items and fewer pictures. 4. Warm up cold, shiny floors with tasteful rugs. 5. Soften the light in a room. Overhead light can make a room appear harsh and unwelcoming. Soft light from table and floor lamps will warm up an otherwise cold-feeling room. 6. Re-think your wallpaper. Unless its new and neutral, it will likely detract from the way a room feels. Neutral colors are best to repaint with. 7. Clean out garages and closets. Most buyers search for larger homes and need more space. Crowded garages and closets send a this house is too small message. 8. Less is more in the kitchen. Use a newer coffee pot, a few cookbooks and some colored accent towels to make it appear spacious. 9. Depersonalize rooms. Pack away family photos, ethnic and religious art. For most buyers, its easier to visualize a room without distracting personal items.About Showhomes Home StagingShowhomes Home Staging has 73 franchises in 23 states. Since its founding in 1986, Showhomes Home Staging has helped Realtors and homeowners sell more than 26,000 homes across the U.S. by transforming high-end vacant houses into valuable homes.

Get a sneak peek of three artists appearing at Scope Miami, a satellite show to Art Basel Miami Beach, during a cocktail reception from 5:30-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, at Moraya Bay. The show is hosted by the Miami-based Arts Fund. Scope Miami takes place Nov. 29-Dec. 4 and features 80 international galleries; Art Basel takes place Dec. 1-4 with 260 galleries. The Naples show will feature 24 pieces paintings (acrylic on canvas and acrylic on linen), mixed media and collodion photography by Mindy Linkous, David LEBO Le Batard and Robert Christian Malmberg, who will all attend. This is a great opportunity for investors and artists to come together, says Jason Linkous, development executive with the Arts Fund, which this summer opened a South Florida office in Miami. Established seven years ago in San Francisco, the Arts Fund commercializes innovation in the arts, motion pictures and social sciences. The group will showcase five artists at Scope Miami and altogether represents 12 artists. The artwork in the Naples show will be for sale, with incentives to purchase that night, including a special Arts Fund Miami package. In addition, the Arts Fund will give away tickets for Scope Miami, valued at $20 each, throughout the night.About the artistsAn impressionist painter, Mindy Linkous (Mr. Linkous wife) works with vintage-inspired images of screen and cultural icons, interpreting them with bold strokes of Moraya Bay hosts works from Art Basel satellite exhibit all all jazz jazz that thatBY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ I THINK PEOPLE HERE ARE STARVED FOR some good jazz, says saxophonist Lew Del Gatto. Occasionally, a high-caliber jazz musician will play in the area Wynton Marsalis and Diana Krall, for example, have both been here but top-notch jazz can be hard to find in Southwest Florida. Jazz aficionados will tell you the area lacks a good jazz station, though local NPR station WGCU-FM now airs jazz in the late evening. So when the Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra announced its first season last year at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts, all eight shows in the All that Jazz series quickly sold out. The orchestra consists of six local musicians. Mr. Del Gatto, a co-bandleader who plays tenor saxophone, played with the Saturday Night Live band for 24 years and also performed with Frank Sinatra.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 People often stop to ask if they know me from somewhere. I have a look something about my face, something about my mannerisms that people find familiar. They say I remind them of an old friend, a colleague, a cousin up North. I smile politely and shake my head. No, I say. I just have one of those faces. I was at a Mexican restaurant the other day with three girlfriends, drinking margaritas and eating fish tacos, dishing about work scandals and celebrity gossip. Our waiter was young, younger than us, with dark hair and a sweetness to his face that made me blush. He set down a fresh basket of tortilla chips and turned to head back to the kitchen before stopping short. Do I know you? he said. I looked up from the table where I eyed scattered grains of salt. I met his gaze and blushed again. I think Ive seen you in here before, he said. Actually, he hadnt. My girlfriends and I were in an out-of-the-way place, miles from our usual haunts, in a part of Florida we dont frequent. I shook my head, ready with the old standby. No. I just have one of those faces. When he walked away, I turned back to my girlfriends. Its crazy, I said. I really do have one of those faces. People stop me all the time and ask if they know me. My friends looked at each other. Are they men? Kelly said. Some of them. Claire laughed. Theyre totally hitting on you. I opened my eyes wide. What? The both laughed. Of course, Kelly said. Thats totally a line. But I get it all the time. Its my face. Kelly shook her head and stirred her margarita. Its a line. After our lunch of too much salsa and not enough tequila, I started to pay attention. Not just to the Do I know you? line, but to lines in general. It turns out theyre everywhere, hiding in conversations, tucked into discourses I thought were free of all that heavy, sticky sexuality that happens so often when men and women communicate. Id assumed I was above all that and so were the men I spoke to. The next weekend, in a restaurant with an outdoor terrace, I approached the bar. Can we still order mimosas? I asked. The bartender, carrying two drinks, slid from behind the bar on his way to a table. He stepped close to me uncomfortably close and winked. I cant wait to see you drunk, he said. I stood there for a few seconds, open-mouthed, all my ideas about innocent conversations gone. But the worst came later in the week, from a co-worker, a man Im friendly with but not friends with. I have to head out, I said. I need to take a shower and change for the evening. The co-worker smiled gamely. Let me know if you need help with that. I didnt realize what he meant until I stepped outside, and then it was too much too dirty, too personal. I wondered how often men had thrown out lines like that and how often I had missed them. Perhaps thats what they saw in my face. SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSAs innocent as I look o t b s artisHENDERSON


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 C3 Describe your art form. I am a photographer who works in the traditional medium of 35mm film, primarily black and white. I shoot with a Nikon N70 and a Contax G2, using 24mm and 50mm lenses. I like the imperfections and graininess of film, and feel that black and white draws the viewer into the picture and the storyline better than color. How do you describe your style? I am first and foremost a street photographer. To me, there is in photography nothing more exciting than setting out with a camera and having no idea of what I am going to find. The spontaneous, unscripted, journalistic nature of the street allows me to capture the poetry of people going about their lives to look for the fugitive second, what I call the clickpoint that tells a story or conveys humor, joy, sadness, irony or any other emotion. When did you discover your creative talents? I discovered my love of photography in my early teens. This, plus an interest in writing, led me to a career in advertising and marketing. I was able to team up with other creatively minded people to develop ideas and bring them to fruition and had opportunities to refine my own way of seeing. Where can we see your work? I will have a one-man show called Street Walking at the In One Instant Gallery (1526 Jackson St. in Fort Myers) Jan 6-28. My book Paris In A Second is available on and at Rose de Paris & Provence in Venetian Village. My photos are also available as individual prints on my website, What inspires you? Ordinary people inspire me in their capacity for heroism and foolishness and everything in between. Watching and photographing people can be very absorbing. Are you a full-time photographer? No. Im involved in a great deal of nonprofit work for my alma mater, and I do some marketing consulting, a practice I have had since retiring from the daily grind about seven years ago. Where did you grow up? I was born in Schenectady, N.Y., and grew up in the Rochester area, where my father was in the graphic arts and printing business. His innate sense of design had a significant influence on me, and I absorbed a great deal from him. Outside of your photography, what are you passionate about? I love to travel. It gives me new venues to photograph, sharpens the senses and helps me better understand whats going on in the world. My wife and I have met some wonderful, unforgettable people while on the road. Other than that, I enjoy skiing, hiking and biking. Who have you studied with? I have taken courses at the International Center of Photography in New York City and the Palm Beach Photographic Center. My most meaningful experience was with the acclaimed photojournalist Peter Turnley; I took his Paris workshop twice. What artist would you most like to meet? The photographer Robert Capa. I would ask him what it was like to be one of the founders and drivers behind Magnum Photos. Words of wisdom or favorite quotation? Robert Capa: If your pictures arent good enough, youre not close enough. He was not advocating the use of telephoto lenses; he was saying that we should get physically closer to our subjects, get involved with them. This thought actually inspired me to refine my shooting style several years ago. Any guilty pleasures? Red wine, single malt Scotch, coffee and a New York deli muffin for breakfast, and frozen yogurt but never together. Education: Dartmouth College, BA in English; Cornell University, MBA in marketing.

PAGE 64 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 I subbed on The Tonight Show. I did the Letterman and Rosie ODonnell shows, he says. Basically, I was a studio musician/jazz musician in New York. Pianist Jerry Stawski, the other cobandleader, can be found playing at The Ritz-Carlton five nights a week, alternating between the beachfront property and the golf resort at Tiburon. Trumpeter Dan Miller has played with various bands, including a stint with Harry Connick Jr. Drummer Mike Harvey, who lives on the east coast, has also played with myriad artists, including Yanni. And the two remaining musicians are familiar faces to those who have seen the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra. Violin and harmonica player Glenn Basham is the concertmaster for the classical orchestra. You dont usually get a concertmaster who loves jazz, says Mr. Stawski. Its just been a wonderful association with him. And bassist Kevin Mauldin is principal bassist with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra. Kevins played jazz for a while, and so has Glenn, says Mr. Del Gatto. They both love it. Its totally different from playing classical music in the orchestra, where they have to be precise and have to play every note thats written in the score. With this group they can improvise, play the way they like. Its a totally different thing for them. I know they both enjoy it a lot. Theyre both very good at it, too. The septet plays in the intimate Daniels Pavilion, an ideal space for jazz, and invites a guest artist each month. The guests are luminaries world-class musicians, says Mr. Stawski. Last years guests were Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Randy Brecker, vibraphonist Warren Chiasson, guitarist Gene Bertoncini and tenor saxophonist Bob Keller. The series was so popular, its increased by 50 percent this season, to six shows (each presented at 6 and 8:30 on one evening). Mr. Stawski and his fellow musicians were thrilled that their shows sold out in the debut season. We were just all jumping up and down about it, he says. We love it. We love the music, we love playing it and we love the rapport we have with the audience. They applaud after every solo. Its been everything you want a concert to be. He recalls that Myra Janco Daniels, the Phils founder and now recently retired CEO and president, attended a concert. She was so happy and delighted with the music and the audience response, and we were thrilled about that, he says. She said, Thats the best jazz Ive ever heard. We were all on a cloud after that. To know that she was happy made us even happier, and we knew (the concert series) was going to continue. The second season of All That Jazz opens Nov. 16, with jazz vocalist Dennis Rowland joining the orchestra. Mr. Rowland was the last vocalist to sing with the Count Basie Band when Count Basie was still alive, Mr. Del Gatto says. He has a big, baritone-sounding voice. Were doing one tune he did with the Basie Band. Other guests in the lineup are: Trumpet, fluglehorn, sax and flute player Ira Sullivan in December; electronic vibraphonist pioneer Mike Mainieri in January; alto sax player Charles McPherson in February; Big Band trumpeter Bobby Shew in March; and jazz trombonist Dante Luciani in April. (See box for more information.)Jazz networkingAll the musicians (in the septet) have had a lot of contact with some of the greatest jazz musicians in the world, explains Mr. Stawski. We get together and talk about who we want to invite if theyre able to come, they come. Some of them, their schedules have not allowed them to participate, but maybe theyll come in the future. Fortunately, between all of us, we just know a lot of great musicians stellar musicians. The idea is to have a core band, and bring in a soloist or a singer. In that way, the music the group performs varies according to who the guest artist is. You change it up, based on what the artist likes to play and what his style is, Mr. Del Gatto says. I think its a good way to do it. Its been very successful. The Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra is the brainstorm of Naples resident Luciano Porello. Hed had the musicians play at various venues around Naples and at his home in Pelican Marsh. He had this idea five or more years ago, Mr. Del Gatto says about Mr. Porello. Hes been a jazz fan and a jazz lover for years. He went to the Phil, and it took him a while to convince them that it would work Eventually, he won them over. black, white and gray touched with a shock of c olor As subjects, she selects legendary and historical figures, including Karl Lagerfeld, Raquel Welch, Twiggy, Blondie and The Beatles. Cuban American abstract artist David LEBO Le Batard is recognized for his large public murals, paintings and sculptures in what he calls Postmodern Cartoon Expressionism. The artist describes this as the application of cartoon imagery combined with richly saturated balances of color and unique linear composition. He also is known for collaborating with musicians, creating live art as they perform. Most recently, he has gained recognition for designing the collage on the cover of Gloria Estefans Miss Little Havana CD. Photographer Robert Christian Malmberg focuses on wet plate collodion processing and alternative mediums to create vaporous images with antiquated touches. He says he likes the random imperfections caused by chemical reactions on the plates surface. He uses digital cameras, an antique bellows camera with vintage lenses, and super-8mm cameras, relying very little on Photoshop or other image-altering programs to create his final images. Admission to the Nov. 18 reception at Moraya Bay is free. The high-rise is at 11125 Gulf Shore Drive. Residential models will be available for viewing from 4:30-5:30 p.m. RSVP by e-mailing Mr. Linkous at JAZZFrom page 1ARTFrom page 1 >>All That Jazz concerts with the Naples Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra and special guest artists >>Where: In the Daniels Pavilion, the Philharmonic Center for the Arts, Naples >>When: All performances are at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16 Wednesday, Dec. 28 Thursday, Jan. 12 Thursday, Feb. 16 Thursday, March 22 Thursday, April 19 >>Tickets: $39 >>Info: 597-1900 or in the know Nov. 16 Dennis RowlandJazz vocalist Dennis Rowland is a former singer with the Count Basie Orchestra. He is the last singer to perform with that orchestra during Count Basies lifetime. Mr. Rowland has also sung with Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. His latest album, Now Dig This, is a tribute to the 1950s and early s music of Miles Davis. Dec. 28 Ira SullivanTrumpet, ugelhorn, sax and ute player Ira Sullivan is an alumnus of Art Blakeys Jazz Messengers. In Chicago in the 1950s, he played with Charlie Bird Parker, Lester Young, Wardell Gray and Roy Eldridge, among others. He has a reputation as a bebop soloist. Jan. 12 Mike MainieriElectronic vibraphone pioneer Mike Mainieri has recorded with Buddy Rich, Wes Montgomery and Jeremy Steig. (As part of Mr. Steigs Jeremy and the Satyrs, he performed with rock legends including Frank Zappa, Richie Havens and Jimi Hendrix.) Hes perhaps best known for his work with the jazz fusion group Steps Ahead, which he founded. Mr. Mainieri can be heard on records by Laura Nyro and Dire Straits and has produced three albums for Carly Simon. Feb. 16 Charles McPhersonInternationally acclaimed alto sax player Charles McPherson has recorded with many renowned artists, including the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. From 1960-1972 he worked with Charles Mingus. He was commissioned to help record ensemble renditions of pieces from Charlie Parker on the 1988 soundtrack for the lm Bird. March 22 Bobby ShewA veteran Big Band trumpeter, Bobby Shew played in Tommy Dorseys Big Band, Woody Hermans Big Band and then with Buddy Rich. April 19 Dante LucianiJazz trombonist Dante Luciani has played with everyone from Elvis Costello to Gloria Estefan.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 THEATER REVIEWIts not too late to enjoy an A.R. Gurney romance at the Sugden nancySTETSON What do you do if life hands you a second chance at mid-life? Do you grab it and run with it like a linebacker whos just made an interception? Do you slink back into the comfort of your well-ordered, familiar life? Or do you just stand paralyzed with doubt? A.R. Gurneys Later Life (based on the Henry James story, The Beast in the Jungle) introduces us to two people at a crossroads in their lives, Ruth (Erin Laughlin) and Austin (James Little). They met a little over 30 years ago in Capri, just after college. And now theyve run into each other at a mutual friends party. On a high-rise terrace overlooking Boston Harbor (thanks to Matt Flynns detailed and realistic set), theyre pushed together by their hostess and left to become reacquainted. The two are initially awkward, but then Ruth becomes playful; she recognizes Austin from her past, but he doesnt remember her. Shes flirtatious; hes interested but a little hesitant. The play takes place over the course of the evening, and while the two banter on the terrace, theyre interrupted by a stream of characters who come out onto the terrace and interrupt them all played by two versatile actors: Bonnie Knapp and David Gardner. Throughout the night they change clothes, wigs, accents and demeanor, as they become a cavalcade of guests at the party. Some of the characters border on caricature, such as Mr. Gardners computer nerd and Ms. Knapps blunt lesbian. Its surprising that the playwright would resort to such well-worn stereotypes. Mr. Gardners computer geek especially shows its age and is not particularly funny. (Though, to be fair, the audience at the performance I attended loved the character and laughed at his nonstop computer jargon.) Perhaps not surprisingly, the best characters are the ones without shtick, the ones the actors are able to make fully human. Ms. Knapp is best as the gracious hostess, and Mr. Gardner is sublime as a retired professor trying to quit smoking. The two are also good as married couples: a frisky Southern pair who moved for business reasons and find the North very exotic, and a Boston couple who disagree about retiring to Florida. The latter husband is the type who thinks life revolves around warm weather and golf; his wife worries about leaving friends and grandchildren. And she has one of the best lines of the play about Floridas gated communities, with its bars and walls and guard houses. Like Ms. Knapp, Mr. Gardner is a wonderful chameleon. But though hes able to play older, he has a little difficulty playing younger. One of his roles is as Austins college roommate, and the apparent age gap was a little jarring. (And while were on the subject of age, it also seems a little strange that a play about two people in their early 50s is called Later Life, as if theyre at the end of their life instead of the mid-point, as if there are no more options left for them.) Two plays in oneDirector Paul Graffy had his work cut out for him, because Later Life almost seems like two plays cobbled together: the moving and tender story about a couple offered a second chance at romance, and a series of slapstick characters who interrupt and intrude. Its almost as if the play cant decide what exactly it wants to be, and sometimes the effect is jarring. Some of these characters are over-thetop, and when they appear in scenes with Ruth and Austin, its like putting cartoons next to real people. Mr. Gurney probably intends for the secondary characters to represent varying responses to change: fear, acceptance, struggle and rejection. The Southern couple has embraced their new life and adjusted to their m ove, w hile the older Boston couple disagrees about leaving the city. Some have had change thrust upon them by health issues, job demands or their partners death.The real storyMr. Gurney is famous for writing about upper-class New England WASPS. With Austin, hes given us an uptight Boston banker who was raised in a genteel life of privilege. Mr. Little plays the role well, with restraint. Hes gallant, polite. As the play unfolds, we learn that hes always been afraid that something terrible was going to happen to him. Thats the reason he pushed Ruth away when he met her the first time so many years ago, despite their obvious chemistry. And thats the reason hes lived his entire life so cautiously. He doesnt realize that hes caused the very thing to happen that he was trying to avoid: The terrible thing thats happened to him is that hes failed to truly live his life. He doesnt allow himself to feel his emotions or follow his passions. Hes trapped in a cocoon of his own and societys making. Ms. Laughlins Ruth is much more playful and expansive. Shes had some difficult times in her life, but shes continued on. The scenes between the two of them are well acted, as awkwardness turns to flirtation and banter, then serious conversation. Will they wind up together? Will they seize this opportunity to have a second chance at romance? Is it ever too late to do any thing? Only if you think it is.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 C11 Is it worth $10? YesHeist movies are hard to pull off (pun intended), because smart audiences have seen the switch-a-roo tricks already and tire easily of stale storylines. Director Brett Ratner (Red Dragon) has by no means crafted a masterpiece with Tower Heist, but its an amusing comedy with some fun surprises. The fictional tower in which the events occur features apartments that cost an average of $5.6 million and, to wit, attract the wealthiest clientele New York City has to offer. In the penthouse is financier Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda), whom we soon learn has committed securities fraud (think Ponzi scheme/ Bernie Madoff). Worse, Shaw lost the pensions of all the employees of the tower, who include: the manager Josh (Ben Stiller), general manager Simon (Judd Hirsch), concierge Charlie (Casey Affleck), doorman Lester (Stephen Henderson) and maid Odessa (Gabourey Sidibe). Josh and the employees naturally want revenge on Shaw, whos living in his apartment under house arrest. Upon learning from FBI Agent Claire (Tea Leoni) that $20 million of Shaws money remains unaccounted for, Josh recruits Charlie, the new elevator man Enrique (Michael Pena) and a downon-his-luck broker named Mr. Fitzhugh (Matthew Broderick) to break into Shaws apartment and take whats theirs. Tower Heist gets off to a sluggish start, but once Eddie Murphy appears as a thief named Slide, things pick up for the better. Murphy has said hes veering away from family-friendly material, and hes funny here as an untrustworthy bigmouth whos only in it for himself. The problem is Murphys character is superfluous: After were led to believe Josh and Charlie know everything there is to know about the building, theres no need for Slide. In fact, Slide offers nothing in terms of planning, meaning all Murphy does is crack jokes which is good because theyre funny, but bad because his character is completely unnecessary. But then, with a cast as good as this one, the movie can survive having a few characters underwritten by screenwriters Ted Griffin and Jeff Nathanson. The good news is all the major players get some good laughs, including Broderick in full bitterness mode and Sidibe, who heretofore has only been known for Precious. She evens dons a believable Jamaican accent and plays nicely off the rest of the cast. The only person whos not particularly funny (disclosure: I never find him funny) is Stiller, who does fine in holding the story together but offers little more. The heist itself doesnt reach nearly the complexity of something like Oceans 11, although we do get the expected extreme level of planning and luck as things transpire. But thats all par for the course and part of the fun. So although you will get your moneys worth, this ones not quite a steal at the price of admission. Puss in Boots (Voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis) In this prequel to the Shrek franchise, Puss (Banderas) teams with Humpty Dumpty (Galifianakis) and Kitty Softpaws (Hayek) to find the Golden Goose. There are some cute cat-isms for cat lovers, but overall this franchise has overstayed its welcome. Rated PG.Paranormal Activity 3 (Chloe Csengery, Jessica Tyler Brown, Lauren Bittner) Young Katie (Csengery) and Kristi (Brown) meet the demon that will affect them later in life in this prequel to the first two Paranormal movies. There are some good scares here (even if most are fake), and Csengery and Brown deliver impressive performances. Rated R.Footloose (Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid) Big city kid Ren (Wormald) moves to a small Georgia town that has banned public dancing and falls for the wild-child daughter (Hough) of the preacher (Quaid) who instituted the ban. This remake of the 1984 Kevin Bacon classic is better than loyal fans of the original will want it to be, but it also has the same flaws as its predecessor. Rated PG-13.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 Pearl Harbor: FDR Leads the Nation Into Warby Steven M. Gillon (Basic Books, $25.99)Pearl Harbor Christmas: A World at War, December 1941 by Stanley Weintaub (Da Capo, $24)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXSpecial to Florida WeeklyDuring the late summer and early autumn of 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt and top senior advisers assumed that an attack by the Japanese was imminent. U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull observed that Japan was actively engaged on a mission of conquest of the entire Pacific and that its government had a long record of duplicity in international dealings. President Roosevelt, after reading secret coded messages from the Japanese in early December, knew that the chance for peace had been lost, but believed the Japanese target would be British Malaya, the Dutch West Indies or perhaps the Philippines. Little did he realize that the attack would occur much closer to home. This Dec. 7 marks the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor and our entry into World War II. Although dozens of books have been written about the subject, two new accounts are exceptional pieces of historical reporting about one of the defining events of the 20th century. Pearl Harbor by Steven M. Gillon, a professor of history at the University of Oklahoma, documents the 24 hours that followed the attack, beginning with the first dispatches received at the White House through FDRs address to Congress the next day. As fast paced as any novel, Mr. Gillon provides readers with a dramatic examination of this crucial juncture in our history. Stanley Weintraub, a National Book Award finalist, reveals that the smoke had hardly cleared from the attack on Hawaii when Winston Churchill dodged enemy subs across the Atlantic so he could meet in Washington with President Roosevelt and discuss strategy with his new war ally. Mr. Churchill arrived on Dec. 22 and remained through the holidays, attending the lighting of the national Christmas tree on the South Lawn and enjoying a traditional Christmas dinner in the White House.

Oceanview Publishing. 336 pages. $25.95. Ward Larsen has done it again, adding another pulse-racing Jammer Davis aviation thriller to last years Fly by Wire. Suppose a power-hungry imam, Rafiq Khoury, gained control of a downed experimental stealth drone and had it hidden in a guarded hangar at the Khartoum airport. Suppose this same person headquartered his shady air freight company, a collection of patched-together DC-3 aircraft, at that same airport. Suppose one of those aircraft mysteriously crashed into the Red Sea. And suppose U.S. security officials had some notion about the location of the drone? What would they do? Who are they going to call? Jammer Davis, maverick crash investigator. His job? Under cover of investigating the DC-3 crash, check on the whereabouts of the drone and discover what technological secrets might be stolen from it and put to dangerous purposes. Readers follow Davis as he makes his way to Khartoums FBN (sarcastically called Fly by Night) Aviation and begins his inquiry. Episodes of his investigation alternate with others that follow the development of Khourys effort to master the remote control technologies of the stealth drone. Khoury and his underlings are in a race against time to fulfill a destructive mission of enormous regional and world consequences. While Mr. Larsen keeps that missions objective obscured until near the end, the author matches the ticks of the villains clock against those of Daviss research there is a huge threat that Davis must defuse before its too late.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 C19 tures on land, in the air and on and under the sea. Seemingly equipped for almost any mental or physical challenge, he keeps in touch with his Washington, D.C., superiors as best he can while planning and improvising his way into and out of trouble. One of the hallmarks of a Ward Larsen book is a high-octane blend of suspense, emotion, action and technological detail. Fully master of the technological issues that Davis confronts, Mr. Larsen has the special talent of describing them in ways that are understandable to the general reader, that never stop the action and that always keep that reader engaged. The varied cast of carefully drawn characters in Fly by Night includes pilots, technicians and security workers employed by Khoury, one of whom is a former Davis nemesis now chief pilot for FBN. Each is sharply individualized and none is superfluous. The government officials Davis contacts are convincingly etched for their walk-on (or call-in) parts. Most important, however, is Dr. Regina Antonelli. This gorgeous physician is dedicated to helping the desperate people of Sudan by operating an underfunded and frequently robbed medical aid station near the airport. The relationship between Davis and the doctor is at first frosty, but it warms and then really heats up. Arabic-speaking Regina becomes Daviss lone ally and a serious romantic interest. I hope Mr. Larsen allows us to meet her again; shes another kind of ticking time bomb. Connecting all this to the current state of affairs in the Middle East, Mr. Larsen has put together a supercharged techno-thriller. More about the authorFlorida-born Ward Larsen enlisted in the U.S. Air Force after graduation from the University of Central Florida. While serving for seven years as a pilot in the 95th and 75th Fighter Squadrons, he traveled widely across North America, Europe and the Middle East. He flew 22 combat missions in Operation Desert Storm and was awarded two Air Medals. In his novels, he puts his experience and training to good use. He studied aircraft accident investigation, survival training and how to resist interrogation under hostile conditions. He has been an instructor pilot, maintenance test pilot and flight commander, among other positions. Hes even herded camels using both a jet and an SUV. After leaving the service, he returned to Florida. Since 1992, he has flown as a commercial pilot and is currently a captain with a major airline. He lives in the Sarasota area. Fly by Night is Mr. Larsens fourth novel.

With New Greens, the Best Course in Naples Just Got Better!It goes without saying that point count is enormously helpful in the bidding, but it also is true that point count can be very helpful in the play. Take this deal where South gets to four hearts after West opens a weak notrump, showing 12 to 14 points. West leads the king of diamonds and shifts to a low spade. Declarer plays low from dummy, overtaking the eight with the nine in order to lead the queen of hearts. When West covers with the king, South wins with dummys ace and returns a heart to the jack, learning in the process that West has a trump trick coming. Declarer must now try to hold himself to one club loser. To accomplish this, he enters dummy with a spade, leads a club toward the K-J and then has to decide what to play after East follows low. If East has the queen, South should play the jack; if East has the ace, South should play the king. It is a crucial guess, and to solve the problem, declarer turns his attention to the point count. He can tell from the opening lead that West had the A-K of diamonds (seven points). He knows from the play at trick two that West also has the jack of spades (one point), since East would have covered dummys eight with the jack if he had it. West has also turned up with the king of hearts (three points), bringing his point count in those three suits to 11. It follows that West cannot have the ace of clubs, which would give him 15 points. Accordingly, South goes up with the king of clubs and makes four hearts.

RadiesseCOMBAT PREMATURE AGING SKIN Look Your Personal Best NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC22 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 Ants have been sneaking inside warm houses for centuries. Our ancestors did not use poison, but they had a way to keep the ants away from their food. They made ant traps of pottery or glass designed to keep ants from climbing up the legs of a kitchen or dining room table. The trap was shaped like a tube pan. The legs of the table were inserted in the center hole in the pan, and kerosene or turpentine was poured into the canal. The ants could not safely travel across the liquid. But the kitchen probably smelled like a chemical plant. One set of four pottery traps, one for each table leg, sold last year at the Southern Folk Pottery Collectors Society auction. It was attributed to the J.G. Baynham shop because of the glaze used on the traps. They were made in about 1900. Each trap is 7 inches wide, so it might trip unwary children reaching for food. But the idea of a dish of liquid around a table leg to discourage crawling bugs is still useful. Q: We live in Minnesota, where its very cold in the winter and hot and humid in the summer. Whats the best way to store cardboard boxes of collectibles to prevent mold and mildew? A: Store cardboard boxes in a dry place. Cardboard absorbs moisture. The basement may be too damp, unless a dehumidifier is used to keep the humidity between 45 percent and 65 percent. If the box has already begun to mildew, you may notice a white powdery substance on it. You can remove the mildew by wiping it off with a sponge dipped in a mixture of one part chlorine bleach to four parts water. Wring out the sponge until its almost dry and then wipe the mildew off the box. Rinse with a sponge dipped in clean water and wrung out. Then put the box in the sun to dry. Q: I have an old Lassie metal ring. It has a portrait of the famous collie with an L on either side of her head. Its in very good condition. Is it possible for you to put a price on this? I have been unable to locate anything regarding price or past sales. A: Your ring was a premium distributed by the Campbell Soup Co., sponsor of the Lassie TV series. The original series ran from Sept. 12, 1954, to March 24, 1973. The ring was featured in an episode in January 1958. It has been estimated that more than 77,000 rings were given out as premiums. Occasionally the rings show up for sale online. You can find out more about Lassie collectibles on the website lassfaq.htm. Q: My brother bought a porcelain traveling tea service for two at the Gloria Swanson estate sale in 1983. It is decorated with the Napoleonic emblem, gold bees and gold rims. The tray has an N in a wreath in the center. The tray and two saucers are marked in red with a crown over an N on the back. The traveling case is made of wood.

Dine In/Take Out/Catering NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 C23 These two traps are from a set of four stoneware ant traps that sold for $275 at a 2011 auction sponsored by the Southern Folk Pottery Collectors Society of Bennett, N.C. The traps are covered with a rust brown Albany slip glaze. The traps, probably made in South Carolina, date from about 1900.fell apart, so I glued it back together. Inside the case, theres a gold pillow that lies over the top of the china to protect it when the case is closed. Im interested in the history of this set. Was it made for Napoleon, or was it just a commemorative piece? A: Your traveling set was not made for Napoleon, but it is decorated with Napoleonic elements. Bees were part of Napoleons heraldic emblem. One story says that he didnt want to spend the money to redecorate when he moved into the Royal Palace. He didnt like the draperies decorated with fleur-de-lis, the French Royal emblem, so he hung them upside down, which made the fleur-de-lis look like bees. A good story, but he may have chosen the bee because its a symbol of industriousness, immortality and power. The crown over N mark was used on Capo-di-Monte porcelain. It was made in Naples, Italy, from 1743 to 1759 and in Madrid, Spain, from 1771 to 1821. The molds and mark were sold and the mark is being used today by Societa Ceramica Richard of Milan, Italy. The sets value is helped because it belonged to Gloria Swanson, but its hurt because of the repairs. Q: I have a mantle clock made by the Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co. It has a cranberry-colored glass case. Its engraved Pat. Dec. 23, 1902 on the bottom, where there are also other numbers I cant make out. The back is engraved Gilbert Clock Co., Winsted, Conn., USA. The clock has been in my family for many years. Id like more information about it. A: William Lewis Gilbert and his brotherin-law, George Marsh, founded Marsh, Gilbert & Co. in 1828. The company changed owners and Connecticut locations several times during the years it was in business. The name was changed several times, too, but always included the name Gilbert. The Dec. 23, 1902, patent was for a beat adjuster for pendulum clocks. In about 1910, Gilbert made a model called Orleans that had a glass case. Gilbert also made clocks with cases made of china, metal or wood. During World War II, when metal was scarce, papier-mache cases were made. The company was bought by General Computing Machines Co. in 1957 and was sold again in 1964. A Gilbert clock with a glass case is worth about $800. Tip: Dont use cooking oil to polish furniture, cutting boards or even wooden salad bowls. The oil eventually will become rancid, the wood will stink and the bowl could even contaminate food.

VINOMollydooker might sound like a womans name, but its Australian slang for lefthanded. Its also the name of Sparky Marquis Down Under wine company, so named because he and his wife, Sarah, are mollydookers. I recently spent some time talking with Mr. Marquis as he prepared for a wine dinner in Miami, giving each bottle his customary Mollydooker Shake. Q: What is the Mollydooker Shake? A: We use nitrogen to stabilize the wine, so the Mollydooker Shake gets the nitrogen out. Open the bottle, pour a little out into the glass, close the bottle, turn it upside down and then shake it. After that you will see a line of creamy froth on the top of the wine thats the nitrogen that is released. Now youre all set to enjoy the wine. Q: Your company recently made international headlines when a forklift dropped a shipment of Velvet Glove. What does it mean to you to lose such an in-demand wine? A: Well, the biggest thing is to lose 462 cases, 6,000 bottles. It was one-third our total production, and possibly our best vintage. The container was being loaded, and the forklift picked it up from the top. One of the forks sheared, and it fell to the dock, smashing everything. We were insured and all, but the wine cannot be replaced. The forklift operator told me he wished he had dropped the next container. I told him I wouldnt wish this on anyone, but why did he say that? It was a container of beach sand, he replied. Q: Do lefthanded winemakers make better wines? A: Its all about passion and excitement. But I will say that left-handers are more artistic. Sarah designed all of our labels, and each one depicts a mollydooker. Two Left Feet is Sarah and me dancing; well, Im stepping on her toes. The Boxer fights using two left gloves, and so forth. Q: When did you decide you wanted to be a winemaker? A: I grew up working in my parents restaurant, but Sparky was going to be a photographer. Then I discovered I liked wine a lot. I went back to college to learn winemaking, and it has become my only passion. I started on this journey 16 years ago and have worked with several different winemakers. Q: How do you manage to create a balanced wine with such a high alcohol content and rich flavors? A: Vineyard canopy management was my college thesis. Healthy vines create the best fruit, and the flavor of the wine is created in the vineyard. Our Marquis Vineyard Watering Programme focuses on creating the most intense fruit flavors possible. We measure everything about the vine and the fruit twice a week in each vineyard, and regulate the water going into the vineyard to produce the highest fruit weight possible. Q: Whats next? A: Were releasing a new sparkling shiraz, made in the champagne method, and couldnt quite figure out what to call it. So we had a contest to name it and received 6,000 entries. The winning name is Miss Molly suggested by a fan in North Carolina. Q: Any last words for our readers? A: Absolutely! Drink it now. Well make you another bottle next year! Some of my favorites from the wine dinner and tasting (all 2010 vintage): Two Left Feet ($25): Like all of the reds, the color is a rich dark crimson. It has deep flavors of berries, plums and currants, with vanilla and spice and a touch of oak, a fine tannin structure and long finish. The Boxer ($25): It has intense blackberry, fig and fresh berries in the aroma and flavor, with hints of spice and oak. Amazing complexity and a long lingering finish. Enchanted Path ($90): Dark purple in color, this shiraz-cabernet blend is a powerful wine with big fruit weight and an amazingly long finish. Vibrant fruit flavors of berries, blackberry and plum, mixed with anise and spices in layers on the palate. Carnival of Love ($90): Violet in color, this lush shiraz has aromas of dark plum, licorice and berries, followed on the palate with sweet fruit and hints of pepper and spice, and a long finish. Velvet Glove ($185): Mollydookers high-end wine, this shiraz is dark in color and has a spicy berry nose and flavors of fresh raspberry, black cherry, plum and blueberries. Soft in the mouth but bursting with flavors that are elegant and voluptuous, it has a long, balanced tannins finish.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 10-16, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINEYes, theres a real macaw at The Real Macaw Restaurant. Her name is Brandy, and practically everybody in the place stops by her perch to say hey. In fact, the staff and patrons appear to be well acquainted with one another, suggesting that The Real Macaw has developed a real following of regulars in its 20 years in Naples. There arent a lot of restaurants in this largely residential neighborhood south of U.S. 41 and east of Naples Bay, so the locals must love it. I wouldnt be surprised to find out The Real Macaw was a house in a former life. It has a multi-level sprawl to it that most restaurateurs would probably avoid because it forces the wait staff to cover a lot of ground. That might be one reason our server disappeared for long stretches and that time dragged between courses. Not that youd want to rush through a meal at The Real Macaw. It has that Key West vibe that makes you want to chill out for a while. A big oak and other trees shade the wooden courtyard deck watch out for falling leaves in your food and its painted in tropical hues of lime green, yellow, teal and periwinkle. A waterfall adds a soothing background sound. A solo musician strummed and sang old standards such those of Cole Porter (a nice change from the usual Jimmy Buffett tunes). Its a very pleasant place to hang out, even just for a few drinks, now that temperatures have cooled off. The indoor dining rooms are a little less casual, with tables covered in white linen. We noticed only one party eating inside and decided it was too nice an evening to not dine al fresco. The wine list is limited to a bakers dozen choices, but we managed to find a couple that we liked: Valenti Bianchi Malbec from Argentina ($9) and Acrobat Pinot Gris from Oregon ($9). Instead of bread, we were served what the waitress called johnnycakes, though Southerners might be confused not to find thin cornmeal pancakes. Apparently a Caribbean version, these were flour-based dough balls fried to a golden brown. They didnt have much flavor to them, but the delicious strawberry butter served on the side made up for that (though it was practically frozen). We found the nearly baseball-sized snacks a bit heavy as a meal starter. The appetizer menu ranges from Asianflavored calamari to classic French escargot. One of the items we zeroed in on mashed yucca stuffed with beef picadillo with a sweet curry sauce unfortunately was not available. We settled on crab cakes ($11) and grilled shrimp ($9.50). It never ceases to surprise me how differently crab cakes are made wherever I go. Sometimes theyre loaded with filler, have the texture of sawdust and taste like theyve been frozen for months. Not here. These were some of the best Ive had in a long time. The moist, flaky crabmeat tasted so fresh and was so chunky that it barely held together when it was seared. Kernels of corn and bits of red bell pepper were mixed in, their sweetness only enhancing the crab. Golden-crisp panko breading added a mouth-pleasing crunch. The two cakes were served with a spicy roasted-pepper crema that was contrasted by a cooling tropical fruit salsa. The lemongrass shrimp were equally satisfying. Four jumbo shrimp (not three, as the menu stated) were perfectly grilled to achieve a slight char without sacrificing interior moisture. Very simply seasoned with fiery pepper, they were complemented by a sweet coconut lemongrass sauce. Rather than beet salad the menu described, this dish had a couple of slices of beet on top of a bed of pureed yam. We thought we were off to a fairly good start. Then things slowed down. Our server passed by without noticing empty glasses, though she did replace used silverware. Brandy the macaw, whose perch was near our table, became increasingly vocal and was moved elsewhere. Bless her little heart, her squawking was making me jumpy. When the entrees finally arrived, there were some issues. My companions pork tenderloin ($25) was just warm and yet it was overcooked, so we could only assume it had been holding for a while and its juices had drained from the meat. We also couldnt taste much in the way of the jerk seasoning that was described, and hoisin sauce was present but the guava cream sauce was missing. (Perhaps the menu needs updating?) There was nothing wrong with the whipped sweet potatoes, which were hot and flavorful, but you dont order a dish for its sides. The vegetables that came with both plates a soggy, bland mlange of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots didnt help matters. I will give the kitchen high marks for the cashew-crusted salmon ($24) if nothing else on the plate. Roasted on a cedar plank, the large fillet was cooked-through but still moist. The n utty crust added a contrasting texture and flavor that took the salmon to another level. The same could not be said of the scant teaspoon of fruit salsa on top. Bland, lukewarm rice and those sorry veggies filled out the plate. We hoped that the dessert course would end the meal on a happier note, but it did not. The chocolate chip gelato ($6.75) had a decent chocolate flavor but was crystallized rather than creamy. The Key lime pie ($5.95) needed more Key lime. Smaller dishes are what The Real Macaw does best, and the restaurant does have a separate bar menu with lighter fare. That and the breezy island vibe could be what keep those regulars coming back. food & wine CALENDAR Thursday-Friday, Nov. 10-11, 10 a.m.10 p.m., Bleu Cellar: Enjoy special tastings to celebrate the opening of Bleu Provences retail wine store (California wines Nov. 10, Tattinger Champagne Nov. 11); 1234 Eighth St. S.; 261-8125.
