You know, like when a door slams suddenly and the guy across the room drops to the ground, pulls an M-16 out of his sock and blows away his grandmothers tea-cup collection, along with her kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining room and lanai because he thought it was not Jack. Not John. Not Janie, Jackie, or Germaine. No, sir. He thought it was..Charlie.Thats right, Tom Monaghan, one of the richest people in America. A flashback. Or something. Mr. Monaghan, now 74, is serving burgers in his new Naples hamburger joint, Gyrene (a euphemism for the Semper Fi crowd), while dressed in combat fatigues, like the employees. He calls them warriors for good.Lets review the patients history. This is Monaghan, the conservative Catholic philanthropist. Monaghan, a seeming Horatio Alger of The City of God, St. Augustines fifth century book comparing the heavenly city with the earthly city and insisting that Catholic war is just and you cant be free if you arent a Catholic. He calls his own particular city of God, Ave Maria. Monaghan, the hard-times foster-home kid who grew up to enlist in the Marine Corps before later making roughly a billion dollars by building a 6,000-franchise pizza empire called Dominos. Monaghan, one-time owner of the Detroit Tigers of fancy cars, fast jets, big splashy houses and a mid-list ranking among Americas 400 wealthiest individuals. Monaghan, Warren Buffetts friend (but maybe not anymore. Buffett horrified most of his rich friends by insisting last year that he and all of them should have to pay income tax at the same rate as other Americans at 35 percent, say, instead of 15 percent. After that, his social calendar probably dried up like a mud puddle in Death Valley). Monaghan, the man who reportedly spent hundreds of millions of his own dollars to help found and operate not just a Catholic university, but a Catholic town with a Catholic cathedral and a Catholic university in it, one in which he still serves as the Catholic chancellor. And why exactly did he locate his city of God way out in the farm fields of eastern Collier County near a Seminole Indian Casino? The answer is obvious, and it wasnt because a developer gave him 900 acres so the company could build his houses. I figure he did it to remind everyone that everything in the world is a gamble. Even including sanity. But how can you not admire the sheer energy and ambition all that must have taken? And heres Monaghan still going strong today, several years north of the three-score and ten that the Lord assigned in his full-span plan. The days of our years are threescore years and ten, Psalm 90 tells us in the King James Bible Cambridge edition, of course. You want really stuffy old white men telling you what God and his boys said if youre going to be told in the first place.And if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.I dont think so, unless by fly away we mean mentally. Dont worry Grandma, its just Tommy. Hes flown away again. Hell run out of ammo pretty soon, but in the meantime, stay down.No, Mr. Monaghan sure isnt flying away anywhere, except to Gyrene, which opened a few weeks ago. There, only two items are served: the Classic and the Deluxe, both burgers and both for $5.99. As a former Marine, perhaps and certainly as an orthodox Catholic Mr. Monaghan has never been one for choice. Not for privates or lance corporals, not for women, not in what people should be allowed to learn and believe and read and think and do, and not for burger consumers. I get that. Choice just gets in the way of efficiency, like voting. SIR, THE PRIVATE REQUESTS PERMISSION TO ORDER A Heres your Classic, son. Now shut up and move out. NOW, NOT NEXT WEEK! The place serves no drinks, no sides, nothing else. It has no tables, although you can go in and pick up orders. And it delivers free, at a range of up to 2.3 clicks, or for you Gyrene novices, a mile and a half. The warriors for good will deliver orders on scooters within 15 minutes of the call, they say. Mr. Monaghans gung-ho business plan depends on simplicity, hustle, mustard, ketchup and cows, along with a rather unusual fashion etiquette for the service industry. The local paper quoted him optimistically suggesting that Gyrene could become a fastfood franchise dynasty at least the equal of Dominos, or greater. And what if he makes a lot of money, again another billion or so? Good works, he says. More for the university, for other Catholic causes, for veterans, for who knows what in the great battle between good and evil which is how Mr. Monaghan has characterized the world. He may not be all wrong. But when the great battle comes to Ninth Street South in upscale Naples, why wear combat fatigues to serve burgers? After all, St. Augustine himself never wore combat fatigues. Neither did St. Thomas or St. Francis or Mother Teresa. Only St. Puller wore fatigues, and he had special dispensation (Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Chesty Puller, winner of five Navy Crosses and the most highly decorated Marine in the history of the Corps). But Mr. Monaghan and his servers wear fatigues at least the old man did last week, a Neapolitan friend reports. I popped in, she wrote to me. All were in combat fatigues including the man himself, Big Tom. I froze and then exited. Stay low, Grandma, its Tommy. Hes flown away again.By the way, Mr. Monaghans combat-dress servers have to be able to run a mile in 10 minutes, they have to trot from their scooters to the door when they deliver an order, and they have to salute customers. They learn how to hustle and salute like that at what Mr. Monaghan calls hamburger boot camp. Apparently, militarized fast-food hamburgers are Gods work.

While they have never met, they now share a profound connection, cemented through their time at the notorious U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Deghayes was a prisoner there. Air Force Col. Morris Davis was chief prosecutor of the military commissions there from 2005 to 2007. Deghayes was arrested in Pakistan and handed over to the U.S. military. He told me: There was a payment made for every person who was handed to the Americans. ... We were chained, head covered, then sent to Bagram [Afghanistan] we were tortured in Bagram and then from Bagram to Guantanamo. At Guantanamo, Deghayes, one of close to 800 men who have been sent there since January 2002, received the standard treatment: People were subjected to beatings, daily fear ... without being convicted of any crime. While Deghayes and his fellow inmates were suffering in their cages, the Bush administration was erecting a controversial legal framework to prosecute the Guantanamo prisoners. It labeled those rounded up enemy combatants, argued they had no protections under the U.S. Constitution, nor under the Geneva Conventions, no rights whatsoever. Guantanamo became a legal black hole. When I asked Col. Davis if he felt that torture was used at Guantanamo, he said: I dont think theres any doubt. I would say that there was torture. Susan Crawford, a Dick Cheney protegee, said there was torture. John McCain has said waterboarding was torture, and weve admitted weve waterboarded. There have been at least five judges in federal court and military courts that have said detainees were tortured. Chained, kept in cages in orange jumpsuits, subjected to harsh interrogations and humiliations, with their Muslim faith vilified, the prisoners at Guantanamo began to fight back, through the time-honored tradition of nonviolent noncooperation. They began a hunger strike. In response, examples were made of Deghayes and the other protesters. He recalled: After beating me in the cell, they dragged me outside, and then one of the guards, while another officer was standing, observing what was happening, (tried) to gouge my eyes out. ... I lost sight in both of my eyes. Slowly, I regained my sight in one of the eyes. The other eye has completely gotten worse. And they went to do the same thing to the next cell and the next cell and next cell ... to frighten everyone else from campaigning or from objecting to any policies. Deghayes now has sight in one eye. His right eye remains shut. After his release from Guantanamo, he was sent back to Britain. He is suing the British government for its collaboration in his imprisonment and torture. Col. Morris Davis, disgusted with the military tribunal process, resigned his position in 2007, and in 2008 retired from the military. He went to work at the Congressional Research Service. After penning an opinion piece critical of the Obama administrations embrace of the military tribunals, which was published in The Wall Street Journal in 2009, Davis was fired. Deghayes notes that the hundreds of men who have left Guantanamo this past decade have been released because of pressure on governments from grassroots campaigning. That is why more than 350 separate protests were held this week, on Guantanamos 10th anniversary. One hundred seventy-one men remain imprisoned there, more than half of whom have been cleared for release, but languish nevertheless. To make matters worse, in what Col. Davis called a complete act of cowardice, President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act, giving the U.S. government the power to detain anyone, without charge, for an indefinite period of time. Davis explained that it is not a dramatic departure from what the policy has been for the last few years, but now its law. One could imagine an Occupy Guantanamo movement, but that would be redundant: The United States has occupied Guantanamo since 1903. Since the U.S. has maintained a crushing embargo against Cuba for more than half a century, presumably because it doesnt like Cuban policies, youd think the U.S. would exhibit model behavior on its little slice of Cuba. It does just the opposite. Which is why grass-roots movements are so important. With the U.S. presidential race heating up, be assured that the Republican and Democratic parties see eye to eye on Guantanamo. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

None of his competitors has been able to manage it in quite the same way. A Romney rally in Exeter, N.H., was a textbook exercise in traditional presidential politics. The venue was big, a high-school gym. The advance work was flawless. The American flag backdrop was enormous. The three generations of the Romney family arrayed in front of it were so picturesque that they might have arrived straight from a photo shoot for a Tommy Hilfiger advertisement. When so many commentators have said that, with anti-establishment sentiment running so high, everything is different in Republican presidential politics, Romney has been the old-school candidate. He hews to the familiar instruction manual with a pharisaical devotion. Raise scads of money and build a national organization. Always stay on message and evaluate every move with an eye to the general election. Win endorsements. Take apart opponents precisely to the extent necessary, no more, no less. As Philip Klein of The Washington Examiner has observed, Romney has been the only guy to show up for the job interview wearing a suit. He hasnt been on a book tour masquerading as a presidential campaign (Herman Cain). He hasnt banked everything on the debates (Newt Gingrich), or showed up unprepared (Rick Perry). He hasnt bet on his performance in just one state (Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman). Anyone who has won a presidential nomination during the past 30 years would recognize what Romney is doing and why. Romneys campaign is all technique and no music. His speech in Exeter was schmaltz piled on top of saccharin in a perfect storm of substanceless sentimentality. First, he said he believed in America. Then, he said he loved America. And in conclusion, he quoted verses from America the Beautiful. In Romneys case, patriotism is the first refuge of a politician who doesnt dare say anything new or interesting. Neither of those will ever be a quality associated with Romney. He continues to excel in debates by routinely coming up with answers that feel as though they were produced by a crack marketing team for maximum unassailability. His stumbles are so rare that they become as noticeable as the tiny wobbles of an Olympic skater trying to nail a triple Lutz. Challenged over the weekend on why he didnt run for re-election as Massachusetts governor in 2006, he said he went back into business, even though he was already running for president when he left the governors mansion. Romney wanted to hang on to the scripted presentation of himself as a businessman above all else plausibility be damned. It was a small falsity that stood for larger worries about his genuineness. Very few politicians have what it takes to follow the old rules with the proficiency of a Mitt Romney. It takes brains, discipline and managerial skill. But people have trouble warming up to the (almost) flawlessly executing candidate from a flawlessly executing machine. The Romney campaign notwithstanding, theres no rule against inspiring people.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 Just over one year ago, Gov. Rick Scott won election on one promise: to fix Floridas broken economy and get our state back to work. Ive known the governor since long before he decided to run for elective office. Hes been a frequent guest on my show, and what Ive learned about him is that he is methodical in how he pursues his goals. His mantra is simple and straightforward. He writes down his objectives and the intermediate steps required to accomplish them. Every morning he checks his list and relentlessly works to cross off everyting on it. The concept is at once obvious and simple. And he has perfected the technique and been successful in business as a result. Hes using that same technique to fulfill his campaign promise of fixing Floridas economy. As governor, he has focused every day on bringing jobs to Florida by eliminating job-killing regulation, holding government accountable and making sure Florida has the best-educated workforce. And the numbers show that his methodical pursuit of those goals is starting to move our state in the right direction. Since January 2011, Florida has gained 134,800 private-sector jobs, while shrinking government payrolls. For every public-sector job lost last year, Florida is averaging more than nine new private-sector jobs. This past Novembers unemployment rate was the lowest we have seen in 31 months, and since December 2010, our unemployment rate has dropped 2 percentage points. One of the major items on Gov. Scotts master task list last year was reducing the tax burden by delivering $210 million in property tax cuts, meaning more money for families and businesses and eliminating taxes for almost half of the Florida businesses required to pay the business income tax. This means more business owners have more money to create private sector jobs. The governor has also held government accountable by vetoing what might be a record $615 million from the state budget. He has eliminated red tape by consolidating multiple agencies into the Department of Economic Opportunity, and he removed an unnecessary layer of oversight by eliminating the Department of Community Affairs. Minutes after being sworn into office, Gov. Scott signed executive orders to begin reviewing all regulations to ensure the least possible burden to business and job creation. So far, he has identified roughly 1,100 unnecessary regulations for repeal. A second executive order implemented policy to check the legal immigration status of all new state employees. Working with the legislature, he has reduced spending by more than $2 billion, closed a $3.4 billion budget gap and delivered on his promise to get rid of the taxpayer-funded state airplanes. But his task list was much longer than that. He has led the fight to require drug testing for welfare recipients, a common-sense measure for which he has been sued by the ACLU and is now defending in the courts. This year, with the 2012 legislative session set to begin, the governor has announced three additions to his to-do list: Pass a job creation package; Keep car insurance costs down by passing PIP insurance reform; and Pump more than $1 billion in new state funds into K-12 education. I wouldnt bet against him. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 7-8 a.m. weekdays at www.bobharden.com. The show is archived for listeners convenience.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 Reporters navigate a forest of information surrounding the 2012 presidential contest. And as the primary season began, newsrooms were staffed overtime to bring some or all of it to readers, viewers and listeners. Ill be here at my desk into the night, until theres a winner in New Hampshire, said Tampa Bay Times politics editor Amy Hollyfield, as she edited incoming stories recently. The GOP campaigns along with scores of reporters will soon focus on the Florida primary set for Tuesday, Jan. 31. Its crucial for the candidates, now and in the general election. Florida is ultimately the most competitive of the top five most populous states for candidates, said Ron Elving, senior Washington editor for National Public Radio. And the 10 media markets here are more expensive to advertise in than most states, giving candidates with the biggest war chest an even more significant advantage. There are myriad other factors at play in the process, as well. Florida Weekly spoke with some of the biggest newsroom decisionmakers in the country and state, to explore how the media covers the race, taking into account journalists natural biases. Reporters who are trained to be objective should also be more than just stenographers, and inevitably that includes some subjective judgments, explains Richard Stevenson, political editor for The New York Times. Others take a more critical view of that venerable company. Jane Sturges wont read it, instead favoring The Wall Street Journal. They hire people with a bias because the publishers are Democrats. Its too bad but thats the way it is, said Ms. Sturges, Republican state committeewoman and manager of the Republican headquarters in Port Charlotte. On the other, hand Stephen Hemping, chair of the Democratic Party of Collier County, says The Journal is not as objective as hed like it to be since the more right-leaning Rupert Murdoch bought it. The criticisms dont end there. Media, and television in particular, tends to like that horse race format, said Jim Nolan, chair of the Democratic executive committee in Charlotte County. He finds the news coverage, as well as candidates repetitive talking points made in an effort to stay on message, tiresome. I religiously watch the (PBS) Newshour because they dont have candidates on, he said. I understand talking points but after weeks or months, Im tired of hearing the same things. With so many sources of news, and so many places to hear different versions, the Internets popularity has transformed coverage for just about every media outlet in existence. The New York Times Mr. Richardson wrote in 2008 that the political blog, The Caucus, is at the core of the newspapers political coverage. Many cite the 1960 contest between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy as a time that marks the beginning of modern campaigns, with seemingly made-for-TV candidates often being the most successful. Joan Didion, in her classic 1988 essay, Insider Baseball, suggested political campaigns and televised conventions were more showbiz than anything else maybe a quaint notion today. I showed (my students) the Nixon-Kennedy debates, said Phyllis Ershowsky, a principal at PKE Marketing & PR Solutions, and adjunct professor at FGCU at times during the last four years, as an expert in media communications. Nixon looked very nervous. He didnt want any makeup so he looked very shiny. You always kind of talk about that historically, but I showed it to my PR strategy students and they really understood the impact the media could have visually. And with so much information racing over the airwaves and drifting in the glow of a computer screen and inked onto real paper, there are plenty of chances to gloss over the nuance of individual political feeling in favor of broad-stroke terms such as liberal and conservative. That can be misleading, Mr. Hemping says. Im a fiscal conservative and a social moderate. How do you pigeonhole a guy like me? Fort Myers resident Marilyn Stout, like Mr. Hemping, describes herself as a fiscal conservative and a social moderate, and unlike him is a registered Republican, the past-president of the Fort Myers Republican Womens Club. The first time I voted was for John Kennedy, she said. I stood in line. It was cold in Michigan. You can imagine in November it was nasty weather. And I stood in line to go in and place my first vote. Later, concerned about the amount of money being spent on social programs, she switched her party affiliation to Republican and voted for Ronald Reagan. In general, I watch Fox, Bill OReilly, etc., Ms. Stout admits. Thats just our taste. My husband controls the remote; and I dont watch very much television, to be honest. As far as the written goes, thats kind of a mixed bag. When it comes to the electronic media, said Wichita State University Political Science Professor Melvin A. Kahn, I think they favor the sensation, the underdog. For example Obama got far more coverage than Hillary did (in the 2008 Democratic primaries). He also describes the power of print media, in particular, as being on the decline. The media can help to further the definition of a candidate in terms of how they want to interpret it, but in terms of endorsement have far less impact. (For example), The Union Leader (in Manchester, N.H.) used to be pretty much the voice of conservatism in New Hampshire and carried a lot of weight. Theyre the paper of record of New Hampshire, and (even though they endorsed him, Newt) Gingrich was only able to get 10 percent (of the primary vote). At 81, Professor Kahn is a selfdescribed partisan Democrat who graduated from the University of Florida in 1952, later completing post-doctoral studies at Princeton University. Not all developments since then please him. Todays campaign finance laws make a mockery of Democracy, in his view. Hes disappointed in President Obamas performance, as well as the quality of the entire field of GOP candidates compared to yesteryear. And he is wont to grumble good-naturedly about his son, a wealthy conservative. He still seems to relish talking and thinking about politics, though, in spite of its seedier aspects, the big money or broken promises. My wife is very jaded and cynical and I just sort of accept it, he said. But I like the excitement of it all.Q&AFlorida Weekly asked similar questions last week of editors or directors of news organizations that follow the race, including the Tampa Bay Times, Waterman Broadcasting, National Public Radio, and The New York Times. The questions and interviews have been condensed and edited for space. Heres a quick introduction to those interviewed: Amy Holly eld is the government and politics editor for the Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times). She oversees state and national coverage as well as PolitiFact. com., the Timess fact-checking website, which won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for coverage of the 2008 election. Darrel Lieze-Adams is the executive news director and manager of promotions for Waterman Broadcasting (NBC-2 and ABC-7), covering Southwest Florida. He has been with the company since 1997. Ron Elving is the senior Washington editor for National Public Radio, directing coverage of the capitol and national politics. He was previously the political editor for USA Today and for Congressional Quarterly. Richard W. Stevenson is the political editor for The New York Times, overseeing the Web and print operations. He started with the paper in 1985 as a business reporter. in the know 1. How are you going to cover Florida for the GOP primary and for the general election, and will your coverage strategy be different this year than it was four years ago, or, for example, when George Bush won the presidency against Al Gore in 2000? Amy Hollyfield. Its different just in that since the 2008 election weve formed a partnership with the Miami-Herald, and were partnering with PolitiFact... When the candidates are here in Florida well definitely strive to be with them wherever they are. Thatll be true now and for the general election as well. I can tell you weve been working on this race for more than a year, so with each (candidate) weve tried to do a good profile and introduce them to our readers, give them a sense of what the campaigning is like in their state. Darrel Lieze-Adams. As candidates come to Florida weve been covering that. People have switched parties to be able to vote in the primary election We have covered a lot of stories like that. And day of the primaries the minute we start getting results well have them in the evening. Well probably crawl them across the bottom of the screen and let people know who the winner of the GOP primary is. Thats what we do with the general election, too, based on results coming in. Ron Elving. I dont know that anything could ever reproduce Florida in 2000. We did not see that the election would last five additional weeks In 2004 we spent more time on Florida, and the mechanics of the voting systems there. So in 2008 and this time I think the primary interest in Florida will be not so much voting problems, but which way the vote will go, (and) the tremendous significance of Florida being the third most populous state. Of the top say five states, Florida is the most competitive. Florida is the one in the top five that could go either way. If Marco Rubio (R-Miami) should happen to be the running mate, which I think is a pretty good prospect, that would increase the interest in Florida also (Well have) something in the category of a dozen journalists (in Florida to cover the primary.) Richard Stevenson. Its hard to answer that question because we wont really know until the South Carolina primary is over and we have a sense of how the field is and the dynamics of the race. Primary campaigns really change from state to state and in this case in a fairly substantial way. (For instance), how (Mitt) Romney emerges in a really commanding position or if Romney is badly bruised. Its hard to plan in any specific way. The general answer is we will cover it thoroughly and aggressively in the same way we cover all the other states that play key positions.2. Many have suggested that the medias coverage of major political contests has become rote and ineffective, a habitual rather than resourceful exercise. Is that true? Amy Hollyfield. I can tell you thats a large reason why in 2007 we started PolitiFact.com. We were looking for an innovative way to cover the 2008 campaign and frustrated by a lack of factual telling of things or calling out people on things. Darrel Lieze-Adams. In my view, absolutely not Our goal has always been to make sure people are educated, when to vote, where to vote, how to vote. At some point we all have personal responsibility. Our job is to cover the issues at hand and cover the politicians. We ask them the questions that are meaningful and impactful and get those on the air... Unfortunately, I think people remember the negative advertising and jabs and very rarely are they remembering the true issues at hand. Ron Elving. I think there is some truth in what Joan writes about the way presidential elections get covered. A lot of it is treated as a horse race, just on the sort of human fascination with races, that is to say contests, any kind of sports analogy you want to choose. I also think with that roteness and sort of kneejerk reaction to the counting of votes, there is also a whole different strain in the way some news organizations pay attention to elections There was a great deal of excitement the first time a Catholic was nominated, Im old enough to remember that (as well as when Jesse Jackson and later Hillary Rodham Clinton were candidates). That was all meaningful beyond the mere horserace aspect because it expressed the aspirations of groups of people who had been essentially closed out. All these factors, these movements and themes in political life, are always present, 24/7, 3/65. But theyre really only brought into sharp contrast in political elections, when candidates are taking positions and running for office.3. Assuming youre human beings who have opinions, how do you guard against bias? Amy Hollyfield. Thats a tough question. Im conscious of it every day as were writing stories; who were going to go be with; where that storys going to play. Its just something you have to be diligent about, have conversations about, and make sure youre not being biased. Darrel Lieze-Adams. I think its about being fair and truthful. I understand what youre saying about this concern of a bias, but our job is to MEDIAFrom page 1
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 NEWS A9 gather facts, to gather the truth, and then everything we do goes through multiple checks. One person doesnt have the ability to go out there and put their view on the air. There are usually two or three different levels that we go through before it goes on the air. So someones bias gets checked and fixed before it goes on the air. Ron Elving. I assume that anyones sense of judgment, whether theyre a New York Times reporter or lawyer or day laborer, everyones judgments are to some degree a product of their life experiences, and the way they react to other people. That would include prejudices and things people have made their minds up a long time ago: east and west of the Mississippi, the North-South divide, the white-black divide, deep-seated judgments. I would think what sets apart a good journalist, and I would include certainly many people I know at The New York Times: They have their experiences and notions of what theyve learned, but they are also to some degree self aware that we have a mental process that goes on in our own reactions to things. So when I see a candidate emerge, say a Michele Bachmann and when I have personal roots in Minnesota and knowledge of her religious connections, and on the basis of all that I have a certain set of reactions I also know that Im having that reaction based on (who I am). So I ask myself, how would somebody as unlike me as possible see Michele Bachman? Its a mental exercise. It is an intellectual exercise which an honest journalist should be engaged in all the time questioning every set of judgments, every set of facts and every reaction we have to a particular person. That I think is what professionalism ought to mean in journalism. Richard Stevenson. I think my colleagues here are professionals to the degree they have personal views about candidates or issues. I think by the time they get here they have learned that their professional role demands they put those things aside. Now that doesnt mean we dont want reporters to use their minds and their judgment and to be more than stenographers and inevitably thats involved some kind of subjective judgments. Theres no sort of ultimately pure journalism out there. We are human beings and make judgments and bring perspectives based on our personal experience. I also think its demonstrably true that we aspire every day to not be carrying water for one party or the other or one ideological view, but to look at things with a cold clear eye and report them as they are or at least as close an approximation of value-free vision as we can bring to it.4. In the daily melee of the campaigns, as you sort through the sexual harassment allegations and negative television ads as well as issues how do you decide what to cover and what to ignore? Amy Hollyfield. We have a mix of what are people are talking about, whats interesting, and what kind of enterprisy thing can we bring to the table that no one else is talking about. We definitely want distinct journalism. We want a Florida angle to everything we write and we just want to make our readers smarter. Darrel Lieze-Adams. You cover whatever the issue at hand is. If the big story of the day is the economy and showing signs of strengthening or weakening, those are going to be the things you go out and chase. If theres a day when theres a major international incident going on, you talk to the candidates about that whether theyre sitting in office or the ones getting elected. Ron Elving. You are constantly trying to serve an audience and also to gain and hold an audience. There is an equilibrium there. While I see it as the responsibility of good journalism to give them information they ought to have, need to have, it is also unrealistic to expect people to stick around if you dont give them information they want to have. Now, those issues overlap. But on the way to making that judgment, that can include whether or not somebody sounds authentic, sounds phony, whether or not they are unlike you. All of those things need to be in the mix. Richard Stevenson. I think there is room for all kinds of coverage when it comes to politics. We are very comfortable delving into the intricacies of Medicare but were also happy to write an entertaining piece about Rick Santorums sweater vest. The two are not mutually exclusive. The campaigns are about big issues that define the trajectory of the country, but theyre also a process that we get to know the candidates in a personal or visceral way. And they are for better or worse, contests. They are horseraces. There is a winner and a loser.5. The intensity of media attention, amplified and compounded today with so many sources of information, might make it hard for anyone to end up being a respected political leader. Is that something you worry about? Amy Hollyfield. I cant say thats something I worry about. I think if I were a politician thats something Id be worried about. I worry about being fair, telling smart stories and making sure people know whats going on. Darrel Lieze-Adams. No. Theyre getting elected in office to represent people the people who voted for them and I think its everyones right to know everything about that candidate and who they are. Its just better to know everything before the election happens. That intense spotlight is a part of running for public office. Ron Elving. I believe in human dignity Our role as journalists is to ascertain as many facts about these people as we possibly can. Im not particularly interested in the lines of inquiry that have no purpose and strip people of their dignity, other than just to sort of achieve that derisive superiority that some people might enjoy. But from my standpoint and NPRs standpoint, were interested in getting as much information as possible. If someone has real problems with the law in their past, or the manner in which someone has made a living or made themselves wealthy, that is certainly relevant. And the way theyve managed their personal relationships, I think thats important. Richard Stevenson. I think we do have a responsibility to bring a skeptical eye to assertions of candidates, to challenge their assertions, to scrub their backgrounds, to look for agendas. But I think its also important that we not poison the process by bringing cynicism to it. You know, the democratic process is the heart and soul of this country, and it deserves to be treated in a way commensurate with its importance in the lives of every American.

Highlights are several hundred pre-electric vacuum cleaners plus interactive exhibits to encourage kids to clean their rooms. Mr. Aslett told Londons Daily Mail in December that people who dont understand his dedication must never have experienced the satisfaction of making a toilet bowl sparkle. Also starting early in life, Dustin K ruse 4, is so knowledgeable about toilet models and plumbing mechanics that the Kohler Co. presented him with an advanced-model dual flush commode for Christmas. Dustin, a fan of the Kohler showroom, has been known to explain toilet technology to other showroom visitors. Government in action Predator drones are an important weapon ag ainst terrorists in Afghanistan, Yemen and other countries, but in June, an unarmed predator was employed stateside to help catch cattle rustlers. The Department of Homeland Security owns eight predators for surveillance and occasionally assists local law enforcement. The cattle rustlers had been arrested, then jumped bail and holed up on their vast ranch near Lakota, N.D., but the predator spotted their exact location on the property, leading to a raid that ended without bloodshed. Indias legendarily plodding government bur eaucr acy had long stymied a snake charmer named Hakkul (a villager in Uttar Pradesh state), who had sought a snake-conservation permit, which had been authorized at one level but delayed locally. In November, finally exasperated, Hakkul walked into the land revenue office in the town of Harraiya with several sacks of snakes (including cobras) and turned them loose, sending clerks and visitors climbing furniture or fleeing. Recent news accounts report that almost all of the snakes had been rounded up. A December news release from the U .S. C enters for Disease Control warned of the dangers of Campylobacter jejuni bacteria infections on a sheep ranch, but apparently only among workers who used an old-style (19th century) method of castrating the animals. CDC strongly urged that workers stop biting off the sheeps genitals and instead use modern tools. From U.S. Sen. Tom Coburns periodic list of the most unnec es sary, duplicative and low-priority projects that the federal government currently funds (announced in December): $75,000 to promote awareness of the role Michigan plays in producing Christmas trees and poinsettias; $48,700 for promoting the Hawaii Chocolate Festival; $113,227 for a video game preservation center in New York; and $764,825 to study something surely already done adequately by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs how college students use mobile devices for social networking. Also on Sen. Coburns list: $15.3 million in continuing expenses for the famous Alaskan bridge to nowhere that was widely ridiculed in 2005 but apparently refuses to die. Chutzpah!Convicted serial rapist Steven Phillips was exonerated in 2008, one of a continuing string of wrongly convicted Dallas-area criminals proved innocent by DNA testing, and under a formula by state law, he was awarded about $4 million, tax-free, for his 25 years behind bars. Recently, Mr. Phillips ex-wife filed a petition in court demanding a portion even though the couple had been divorced for the last 17 years of his incarceration, and the ex-wife had remarried and had a child. (The ex-wife claims it was Mr. Phillips who originated the divorce and that she had given up on him only because he had revealed a disgusting history as a peeping tom and flasher.) Felicitous discoveries Dan DAmato, 45, partying in an Orlando mot el room in December, was accidentally shot by a stranger who was having a dispute with another partygoer. Later, as his wounded hip was being treated at a hospital, doctors discovered and removed two huge tumors in Mr. DAmatos abdomen that had so far gone unnoticed. The tumors were not cancerous but had they not been found, they would soon have disabled him. At a home in Taylorsville, Utah, in Dec ember one housemate who was pursuing a mouse in the kitchen accidentally shot another housemate. As police investigated, they discovered a 13-year-old girl hiding in a closet. A third housemate, Paul Kunzler, 28, was then arrested and charged with carrying on a months-long sexual relationship with her. Police report John Whittle, 52, was charged in December with r obbing a Wells Fargo Bank in Port Richey, Fla. According to police, Mr. Whittle ordered a beer at the Hayloft Bar shortly after 1 p.m., then excused himself, and a few minutes later, returned to finish his beer. In the interim, police said later, Mr. Whittle had walked down the street to the bank and robbed it. In December, Russell Mace, 55, was caught soon aft er r obbing a Union Savings Bank branch in New Milford, Conn. A bank employee had spotted Mr. Mace acting suspicious in the parking lot, and indeed, he said, Mr. Mace entered, robbed the bank of about $3,000, and fled to a waiting car. Police, however, identified the car, which they had noted from Mr. Maces recent arrest for shoplifting. (The suspicious behavior the bank employee had noticed, he told police, was Mr. Mace, pants down, defecating, in plain view among parked cars.)

OUTDOORS BY ART RITASSpecial to Florida WeeklyGuided walks at Clam Pass sponsored by the Conservancy of Southwest Florida are up and running for a new season. I guide the walks some days and walk the boardwalk, back dune trail, marshy area and beach most others. Today, as I move along the boardwalk, I see the vertical lines of drop roots of the red mangrove trees, the parallel silk lines of the masterful orb weavers webs and then, at the bridge overlooking lower Clam Bay, the wavy line of the crowns of the mangrove trees. One lone snag sticks up, a jagged line pointing to the heavens. I watch an osprey descend, a foot-long fish in its talons, and land on the snag. He secures his position and the fish by grasping with his three stationary talons and adjusting the one that is moveable. He is the only raptor with a talon that works like the human opposable thumb. I watch. He eats. Ive watched similar scenes countless times, but this time theres something different. The osprey has ripped and devoured several pieces of fish, but the fish is still thrashing. This stark example of the food chain evokes more emotion than flat illustrations in a textbook. Better to see this live than to read about it. On the back dune trail I use my macro binoculars to see a gopher tortoise half in and half out of his burrow. My binocular eyes stare at the two reptilian eyes, and the eyes stare back. After a time, it seems we have learned something of one another. The tortoise backs into his burrow, and I think of the line of the excavation that runs about 5 feet down and then horizontally for maybe 50 feet. I emerge from the sandy trail and walk back to a marshy area. Lines of phallic-looking pneumatophores, the breathing tubes that are part of the black mangrove root structure, seem ready to march. I see motion and raise my binoculars to a beautiful sight: a pair of cavorting mangrove buckey e butte rflies. When they land, I enjoy a close look at the squiggly white lines and false eyes on their wings. I move on to Clam Pass for the grand finale: hundreds if not thousands of black skimmers, some perched on a sandy shoal, others in the air doing what they do to deserve their name. When they are born, their bills, bright red with black tips, are made up of upper and lower mandibles of equal length. But by the time these birds are fully grown, the lower mandible has grown longer than upper. I watch as an adult demonstrates. As it skims the water with its bill open, the lower mandible traces you guessed it a line in the water. It scoops up a fish, clamps its upper mandible shut, then soars into the air and eats while flying. The black skimmers Spanish name is rayador, drawer of lines. Back on the shoal, other skimmers are resting. A human beachcomber walks through their line and they fly off in a graceful airborne wave, only to return to the beach a few seconds later. Repeated disruptions like this can threaten the existence of these beautiful migratory birds. Walking back, I reflect on the spiritlifting quality of the many beautiful lines in nature. Join us on a Clam Pass walk and you may see fine lines youve never seen before.

The Tiffany Circle comprises women who donate at least $10,000 annually to the Red Cross. The title comes from the Tiffany windows installed in 1917 at the Red Cross national headquarters in Washington, D.C., which depict women who personify virtues at work in the Red Cross movement: hope, mercy, faith, charity, truth and fortitude. The Tiffany Circle has almost 700 women in 79 chapters nationwide and has raised more $34 million to date. Both Ms. McElveen-Hunter and Ms. Sabelhaus recently addressed the 18 Tiffany Circle members affiliated with the Floridas Southern Gulf Coast Region of the Red Cross and other guests during a luncheon at the Naples Yacht Club. The Jan. 10 event was coordinated by Heidi Mangel, a Tiffany Circle member who remembers her grandmothers at the end of World War II folding bandages and knitting sweaters for the Red Cross. The American Red Cross reaches the most vulnerable, the least, the last and sometimes the lost, Ms. McElveen-Hunter told the audience of 75 women. This is mostly women and children. It doesnt matter the country. Ms. McElveen-Hunter is the founder and CEO of Pace Communications, the nations largest custom publishing company. She is also a former U.S. Ambassador to Finland. Ms. Sabelhaus, who served as deputy administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration, told the luncheon crowd that she got involved with the Tiffany Circle because someone told her women were willing to give, they just hadnt been asked. Cyndi Doragh of Naples is one example. She attended a Red Cross event the night before the luncheon and became the groups latest Tiffany Circle member. As a member of the Rotary Club of Fort Myers South, Ms. Doragh traveled with the Red Cross to Alabama, where she has a second home, to deliver supplies and help after the Tuscaloosa tornadoes. People dont understand how effective the Red Cross is, she said. You give people a bottle of water and a hug, and that human touch is critical. She sees membership in the Tiffany Circle as one more step to helping people in need. Im willing to do the physical part, but I know they need the money, too. Donna Boortz, a lifetime Tiffany Circle member (which requires a $100,000 pledge payable over 10 or fewer years) who administers her own foundation, praises the organizations fiduciary oversight. The Red Cross is at the top of the heap for giving money to service. They consistently use your money well. Ms. Sabelhaus emphasized the role that women play as the economic powerhouses of the 21st century. Women are the strongest, most powerful voices in philanthropy today. And that brings a lot of responsibility, she told the luncheon group. How are we going to make a difference in our communities?

Campaign raises $10 million-plus for Avow HospiceBY JAMA DOCKSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe Promise Campaign launched by Avow Hospice in 2009 has generated more than $10 million in contributions, pledges and bequests since its inception. Monies raised are designated to support un-reimbursed services, grow an endowment and complete campus enhancements. Highlights include funding for: Enhanced clinical care; Un-reimbursed services such as bereavement support, community grief support and music and massage therapies; Workshops related to specific diseases such as congestive heart failure, pulmonary diseases and Alzheimers; A pet memorial garden on the Avow campus; and Special community memorial services held by Avow each year, such as the annual butte rfly release and Naples Remembering. We are truly grateful for the generous contributions from our local community, especially the successful grassroots efforts from residents of Pelican Bay and Vineyards, each of which raised more than $1 million, says Chuck Hoffman, board member and Promise Campaign chairman.

The vice president of wealth management at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Mr. Hoffman joined the Avow board in 2008 and within months was asked to chair the three-year Promise Campaign. As of November 2011, the campaign had raised $10.4 million. Here, Mr. Hoffman reflects on lessons learned along the way. What made you want to get involved with Avow and its fundraising efforts? Up north, both my father and mother had been in hospice care This experience made me want to get more involved locally. What aspect of fundraising did you find to be easier than expected? More challenging? For me, the easy part was asking for funds and donations and speaking about Avow. Staying organized and focused was the more challenging part. Have your efforts yielded any big surprises so far? As we got into the campaign, the country was in a recession. As campaign chairman, you have to be continuously upbeat and optimistic, while secretly remaining realistic. The surprise is that not only did we reach our goal, but we exceeded it. That is particularly pleasing given the state of the economy. Raising the money was important, but the bigger benefit is the increased awareness of Avow Hospice in the community. We were able to really get our message out there and through these efforts, I think we have advanced our fundraising potential going forward. What was key to the campaigns success? This campaign journey has been successful because of the efforts put forth by the Avow staff and campaign volunteers. Throughout my involvement, Ive met some extremely great people, from patients and family members to Avow employees and donors I plan to stay involved, even when theres not an official campaign underway.

Sled hockey is an accessible version of ice hockey, adapted for people with physical disabilities. Our players dont just learn to play hockey, they also learn teamwork and life skills, develop stronger self-esteem, and respect for others, says Ron Robichaud, coach of the Florida Eels sled hockey team and the man who brought the sport to Florida two years ago with programs in Fort Myers, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Rockledge. Players and coaches from around the state will be on hand at the Fort Myers clinic to explain the sport, demonstrate skills and facilitate on-ice lessons and scrimmages. It will be the FSHAs third clinic in Southwest Florida and the seventh statewide. Our goal is to get 10-15 new athletes for our program this year, Mr. Robichaud says. Attendees should wear warm clothing (jeans and sweatshirts). All equipment will be provided. The clinic is sponsored by Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida and the city of Fort Myers Skatium. A big part of our mission is helping people with disabilities overcome their barriers to independence, explains Goodwill spokeswoman Kirsten ODonnell. If youve ever seen wheelchair basketball or rugby, you know that people with disabilities have unlimited potential. Its just sometimes hard to find opportunities. The Fort Myers Skatium is at 2250 Broadway, ear downtown and the City of Palms Park. For more information about the clinic, call Mr. Robichaud at (207) 252-7134 or e-mail email@example.com.

BY SHAYNA BROUKERUniversity of FloridaA new study In Norway found that insomnia can increase the risk of heart attacks. The 11-year study of more than 50,000 Norwegian adults found that those who had trouble falling asleep most nights over the period of a month had a 45 percent higher risk of heart attacks. People who had trouble staying asleep had a 30 percent increase in heart attack risk. And waking up groggy in the a.m. more than once a week was linked with a 27 percent greater chance of having a heart attack. Its not the first study to suggest a link between sleep and blood pressure. Researchers in Greece found that waiting an hour to snooze after eating decreased the risk of stroke by two-thirds. More studies are needed to pin down the connection between sufficient sleep and a healthy heart, but scientists think it may have something to do with sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition that causes sufferers to temporarily stop breathing during slumber, and its a risk factor for heart disease, too. The periodic interruption of sweet slumber can create a vicious cycle of extreme drowsiness. So what can you do if sleep seems to escape you at night? Make sure to establish a bedtime routine to wind down from the day. Drink some tea, turn off electronics and dim the lights. Ban blue lights from TVs, alarm clocks and cell phones in the bedroom. Limit naps to 20 minutes, finish exercising three hours before bed and avoid caffeine in the afternoon. If nothing eases your insomnia, talk to a doctor. It may be a sign of an underlying problem, like depression or asthma. Getting a solid seven to eight hours of sleep time will keep you and your heart healthy. HEALTHY LIVINGSleeplessness can spike heart attack risk Even in todays rapidly changing environment, the special bond between patient and physician remains the core connection in delivering quality health care. I was vividly reminded of this as I read a recent correspondence between patient Mollie Ottina and Dr. Ashley Tunkle, both of who gave me permission to share their communication after I had the pleasure of making the referral. Heres what Ms. Ottina wrote: Dear Allen, What a find is Ashley Tunkle! Thank you so very much for asking her to accept me as a patient. I know now that when I am sick I am going to have a doctor who will see me and who will care about me. She is thoughtful, considerate, caring, very intelligent and observant and so young and vibrant. To find all these qualities in a single physician is rather close to a miracle. She is the proven product of your comments about the NCH medical staff in your recent Straight Talk column. I only spent around 20 minutes with her, but I could not believe that she took the time to learn about my medical history and to show that she cares. For the first time in my life, I wrote a letter to a doctor telling her how much it means to me that she will be my doctor. I am sure she will keep up with each and every one of the specialists I see to be sure that she always knows my total medical picture My deep and sincere thanks, Mollie. For a hospital administrator, it doesnt get much better than that kind of praise for a caring physician. In her note, Ms. Ottina also alluded to the new reality in modern health care: a patients relationship with additional specialists beyond the primary physician. Todays more sophisticated system introduces patients to many highly trained, highly educated and highly caring specialists, each focused on one particular aspect of care Beyond relationships with these specialists, a patient comes in contact with physician assistants, nurse practitioners and a host of other well-meaning and well-trained associates who assist in so many important ways. Obviously, with the introduction of more sophisticated technology, including electronic medical records, the responsibility for all of us to remain high touch in an increasingly hightech world has become more challenging. Comforting with compassion and care remains our mandate, from the time a person enters an office waiting room, like at our Naples Heart Institute, to the moment his illness subsides and they receive palliative care from people like Gwen Kolegue and her colleagues. Each of us at NCH has a duty to ensure that our patients receive the most knowledgeable, attentive and empathetic care we can offer. In so doing, we will guarantee that those we care for truly stay connected to NCH. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare Systems.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickWhen you pick up a prescription from your veterinarian, do you know that its likely a people med your pet is getting? Its true! Aside from fleaand tick-control products and some non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, most of the medications your pets receive are crossovers from human medicine. And when I say most, I mean almost all. Some 80 to 90 percent of the drugs used in veterinary medicine come from human medicine. This so-called off-label use of human drugs allows veterinarians to treat medical conditions (and species) that arent always priorities for drug companies when it comes to developing and selling medications. Some of the medications may be used for different health conditions in animals than in people. For years Id get raised eyebrows when talking about dogs prescribed Viagra (in dogs, it can be used to treat a heart condition) or Botox (used to treat problems caused by deep skin folds in some dogs). More routinely (and less surprisingly) prescribed are human antibiotics, anti-anxiety medications and many other drugs that pretty much treat the same issues in both people and pets. The practice of veterinary medicine is challenging, thats for sure. We have to work with multiple species, none of whom can say, It hurts here, Doc! And we have to know more about pharmacology than our physician counterparts. After all, in human medicine, all drugs are FDA-approved, meaning that they have undergone significant scrutiny for safety and efficacy but only in one species: ours. The guidelines for use are fairly clear. But when a veterinarian believes a particular human medication can help an animal, shell prescribe based on information thats often not quite as regulated with regard to its use in animals. This has been the case for decades, of course, but the practice has only really been legal since 1994, when Congress passed the Animal Medicinal Drug Use Clarification Act regulating the conditions under which off-label use is acceptable. Even before the legislation was in place, however, there was a working system for prescribing human drugs to pets. Veterinarians relied on peer-reviewed studies, clinical trials and published formularies that included suggestions for safe uses and dosages of human medications given to companion animals. Today, with the legal issues cleared up, veterinarians and their patients have more options and better access to medications. Veterinarians have always been glad to provide in-house pharmaceutical services, and general pharmacists, too, have usually been willing to fill prescriptions written by vets. But recently, online retailers and specialty pharmacists have recognized that pets are an expansion market. These developments open the door to even more changes, including discussions on generic meds and walking out of your veterinarians practice with a prescription instead of a pill bottle. Chances are you wont be taking a prescription for Viagra or Botox with you the next time you go to the veterinarians office, but you should still talk with the doctor about your pets treatment options. A good veterinarian will discuss what medications your pet will need, tell you what screening tests may be required for safety beforehand, what side effects to look for after you get home and answer all your questions before you go. Your veterinarian should also encourage you to call with questions or concerns. Good communication, after all, is as important a part of good medicine as, well, medicine. The lid may say animal, but chances are your pets medication is something your own doctor would prescribe.Botox for petsNearly all drugs for animals are crossovers from human medicine

It really seems like Im walking out of a cabin into the woods. And look at the detail! Look at those eggshell shards on the ground, under the tree right by the cabin door.

Or is it an abandoned active vehicle not necessary post its successful temporal/spatial rendezvous? Nothing that I know of escapes my notice. I have even retained the little yellow seraka leaf that stuck to my left temple. Or was it yours? Who can own such things? I have compassion for board game meeples. Who is your meeple of choice?

It could be a little girl with wooden pepper-shaker. Sitting under a white blanket, she clutches the shaker in her right hand. It has a mans face with heavy lidded eyes painted on the top and a red heart painted on its shuddering breast. Where is the salt vehicle? The girl doesnt notice her own empyrean eyes and her own emblaz oned fluttering heart. She only envisions a climbing up the attic stairs to a walking on a floor now solid but once porous and squishy in dreams. She peers out the square window centered in the inner triangle of the outer gabled roof. She sees below a small wooden shed surrounded by lilac color and scent. And behind the shed: an alley. In the alley she finds herself, staring into a water puddle that shows her a sun coming to live in her retina, no mere squatter. What outpours is not rain, but the salt born of meeple liberation. An ocean ensues. An iron bird flies overhead. Inside there is a small boy clutching an action figure in his left hand, head between his legs. There is no crash. But neither is there any palpable rescue. Not yet.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 Judge Jed S. Rakoff, Southern District of New York Federal Court, stands alone against: the Securities and Exchange Commission; the prestigious law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison; and their client, the once mighty but now too-big-to-fail bank, Citigroup. As to the specifics of the standoff: the SEC sued Citigroup in October 2011 for selling $1 billion in mortgage-backed CDOs while secretly shorting the securities, which one Citigroup trader allegedly called a collection of dog s---. Shortly after filing, the parties agreed to settle, but Judge Rakoff refused to sign off on the deal, blasting the SEC in a blistering ruling for letting the megabank settle for pocket change without admitting wrongdoing (Courthouse News Service, Dec. 29, 2011). This case is unique and of high interest for numerous reasons. First, this litigation could become the first subprime mortgage case in which fraud is admitted. Prior to Judge Rakoffs stance, James Cox, a securities law professor at Duke University, aptly lamented, Were never going to put a face on this (2007-2008) crisis. Its going to be the crisis of anonymity (Bloomberg, Jan. 3, 2011, The Top SEC, Settlements of 2011 by Joel Stonington). Second, the judges refusal is precedent setting. Per a Dec. 15, 2011 SEC press release, the SEC claims that, the courts new standard is at odds with decades of court decisions that have upheld similar settlements by federal and state agencies across the country. In fact, courts have routinely approved settlements in which a defendant does not admit or even expressly denies liability (http://sec.gov/news/press/2011/2011265.htm). The SEC statement about routine approval of its settlements is so very unfortunately true. In fact, the SEC filed a record 735 enforcement actions in 2011 and collected $2.8 billion in settlements (Bloomberg, Jan. 3, 2011, The Top SEC Settlements of 2011). The diversified portfolio of settlements included: foreign bribery; Ponzi schemes; insider trading; municipal bond underwriting fraud; backdating executives options; and heavy emphasis in sub-prime mortgage crisis fraud. Notable 2011 SEC settlements include: the former CEO of Countrywide Financial, Angelo Mozilo (charged to have misled investors about subprime loans while unloading personal stock and options worth $139 million); and JP Morgan Securities (charged with misleading investors in a complex mortgage deal). Egregious but settled. Third, if Citigroup winds up admitting fraud (or in trial, is convicted of fraud), well then the individual investor can make additional filings against Citigroup for more financial relief without incurring the hefty cost of proving such fraud! Now, finally, the little guy might have a chance at taking on the behemoth and being made whole. Fourth, the judge, in my opinion, didnt like how the SEC cut the settlement pie. Per Courthouse News Service, Shortly after filing, the parties (SEC and Citigroup) agreed to settle for $285 million, with $95 million going to the victims. It seems the investor, who was the party wronged and who is due the money, gets pocket change, per Judge Rakoff. So the SECs idea of fair allocation is big bucks ($190 million) to the U.S. government which some would protest is grotesquely high compensation for having failed proper oversight in 2007-2008 period. Of course, the SEC spins it differently as in it is the champion of the wronged, small investor. The SEC claims, per its Dec 15, 2011, press release, In cases such as this, a settlement puts money back in the pockets of harmed investors without years of courtroom delay and without the twin risks of losing at trial or winning but recovering less than the settlement amount risks that always exist no matter how strong the evidence is in a particular case. Beyond all this, there are fascinating twists and turns to this story. The following quotes are taken from the Courthouse News Service column; they barely do justice to that columns coverage of the SECs and counsels heavy-handed actions. So consider a full reading. Meanwhile, here is my simplified version. After rejecting the settlement, the Judge set a summer trial date. The SEC didnt like the response and went about trying to get a stay from the Court of Appeals but done in a misleading way. Per Judge Rakoffs writings to the Court: At approximately 4:20 p.m., the Court of Appeals granted the SECs request for a temporary stay. Virtually simultaneously, at 4:21 p.m., this court, totally unaware of any of the filings in the Court of Appeals, issued its Memorandum Order denying the stay. The Court of Appeals therefore rendered its decision without having received this courts memorandum order and having before it only the materially misleading papers of the SEC. You dont have to be a lawyer to know that this judge is mighty perturbed by the lack of forthrightness.Continue to look for news coverage and a continuance of this exciting story.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL Join a Club!Want to start investing, or invest better? Consider forming or joining an investment club, where, with others, you pool your money, brains and time, making investments together. There are many such clubs across America, typically with 10 to 20 members meeting once a month. Members each contribute about $20 to $100 monthly to a joint account, research stocks individually or in small groups, present their findings to the group and vote on investments. Clubs are ideal for beginning investors, as members can learn together in a comfortable group setting. But even savvy investors can benefit, leveraging valuable resources such as time. Alone, you might thoroughly research one company per month. But 10 people might cover 10 companies a month, or 120 in a year. Clubs can improve your discipline, too. On your own, you might rashly act on hot stock tips or might trade frequently. In a club youre usually bound by your partnerWhat Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Explaining the Prime NumberQWhats the prime rate? T.W., Norwich, Conn.AIts the interest rate that banks charge their best (lowest-risk) commercial customers. It matters because many other interest rates, such as those for mortgages, home equity loans, credit cards and other business loans, take their lead from the prime rate. A car loan rate, for example, might be calculated by taking the current prime rate and adding a certain amount to it. The prime rate doesnt change every day. It stays put for a while until major banks change their rates, generally moving in step with economic conditions. (That often happens when the Federal Reserve changes its discount rate, which is what it charges banks that borrow short-term money.) There actually isnt a single prime rate. Each bank may set its own, but the major commercial banks tend to use the same one most of the time. Youll find the prime rate in most newspapers business sections.QHow can I find out whos on a companys board of directors? N.B., Ashland, Ky.AYoull frequently find a list of a companys board members on its website. Look for links labeled something like Company Information, About Us, Investor Relations or Corporate Governance. You can also just call the companys investor relations department and ask. Most annual reports will list the members of the board, often with a glossy color photo of the gang. Another option is to check out the reports that the company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The annual 10-K report is your best bet, and you can get it by entering the companys name or ticker symbol at http://finance.yahoo.com.

Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrichship agreement to study a stock carefully before voting on whether or not to invest in it. Many clubs tend to own solid bluechip companies, hanging on for years, not months or weeks. These kinds of habits can lead to market-beating performances. Investment club members tend to have a good sense of perspective, as well. In market downturns, when many Wall Street professionals and individual investors alike scramble to sell stocks, club members have often calmly held on. In fact, they tend to be excited about bargains to be found. Investment clubs can be terrific. Learn more about them at www.betterinvesting. org, www.bivio.com and www.fool.com/ investmentclub/investmentclub01.htm. There are many helpful books on how to form and run investment clubs, too, such as Starting and Running a Profitable Investment Club by Thomas E. OHara and Kenneth S. Janke, and Investment Clubs for Dummies by Douglas Gerlach and Angele McQuade. Theyre out of print, but you can find them at Amazon.com or Half.com, and perhaps even at your library. Next week: tips on running a club. A Typo TaleI asked my broker to buy me 100 shares of EnerNOC, whose ticker symbol is ENOC or so I thought. The order I actually placed was for shares of ENCO. That turned out to be a tiny biotech-related company called Encorium Group, not the much bigger energy company. I figured it out when he called to ask why I wasnt buying 1,000 shares, since the stock sold for about 54 cents. I finally sold my ENCO shares for about 21 cents each.. D.L., Washington, D.C. The Fool Responds: Encorium, a penny stock, was recently trading for about 12 cents per share, serving as a good reminder of how volatile and risky many pennies can be. Youre not alone in mixing up ticker symbols. Many people expect Intels ticker to be INTL, but its INTC. Similarly, Apples is AAPL, not APPL, and Coca-Cola is KO, not CO or CC. Be careful and precise when placing trade orders. Online, a brokerage will often show you a summary of your order for you to check. Look it over and make sure its the right company before confirming. The Motley Fool TakeAT&T in 2012The proposed $39 billion merger between AT&T (NYSE: T) and Deutsche Telekoms T-Mobile USA is history, but AT&Ts future still holds promise. AT&T had hoped to increase the number of its radio frequency licenses with the merger. Instead, as part of a breakup fee in the agreement, AT&T will have to fork over $3 billion worth of spectrum and roaming agreements to T-Mobile, along with $3 billion in cash. So job No. 1 for AT&T in the new year will be to gain additional spectrum just to tread water. Its waiting for the FCC to OK its deal to buy $1.9 billion worth of spectrum from Qualcomm.

The biggest reason AT&T is going to need as much spectrum as it can get is to catch up to Verizon in the race to smother the country with 4G LTE coverage. Verizon seems to have quite a head start in that regard. Its LTE network covers 179 cities across the country, vs. just 15 cities for AT&T. The coming year is definitely going to be challenging for AT&T, but its certainly not in dire straits. The company just upped its quarterly dividend for the 28th year in a row. Think twice before selling off your AT&T shares in a panic. That 6 percent dividend yield can be quite effective as an anti-anxiety pill. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Qualcomm.)

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB8 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 a number Elaine Hamilton, executive director of the United Arts Council of Collier County, says has likely doubled since the studys completion eight years ago. Its definitely half a billion now. As part of the Lee County study, the alliance surveyed 1,000 audience members and participants at 50 small and large venues and events. We asked about any costs associated with the arts what they spent for dinner and a show, if they bought a dress, paid a babysitter or bought gas, says Ms. Black. What was interesting to us was the diversity of ZIP codes. There were more folks than we expected from out of town, from Collier and Charlotte, at small local events. We were pleased to see that in some of the data collected. We learned theres a large group of tourism coming in our direction because of the arts and culture. We were also surprised by some of the organizations we didnt know, and are getting to know better. Nationally, the nonprofit arts and culture industry generates $63.1 billion in spending by organizations and an additional $103.1 billion in event-related spending by their audiences, according to Americans for the Arts. The Alliance for the Arts has previously delved into the impact of the arts in Fort Myers as part of the redevelopment of the historic River District, says Ms. Black. In 2010 24 arts-related organizations in Fort Myers had a combined $10 million budget, employed more than 100 fulland 200 part-time staff and pumped money into local government and businesses through taxes, supplies, marketing and other business needs. An arts and prosperity survey conducted five years ago showed a $7 return on every dollar spent on the arts. The arts are not just entertainment value, but important for the economic recovery for a community, Ms. Black says. Its not just big venues like the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall or the Naples Philharmonic adding to the economic impact. Smaller groups barbershop quartets in Naples, a community center in Alva and quilting clubs in Englewood also contribute to the regions bottom line. Whether large or lean, organizations and individual artists are adapting to the economic downturn by reducing ticket prices or producing smaller, less expensive artwork, says Ms. Hamilton. The Naples Players has had 90 percent capacity the past three years despite the recession. Arts groups are also collaborating to offer joint events fundraisers and friend-raisers that provide an opportunity for people to be exposed to the arts, says Ms. Black. The Alliance for the Arts partnered with ArtFest Fort Myers, the Florida Rep and other arts agencies for Novembers second annual Taste of the Arts, one of many Southwest Florida events designed to promote the arts. The three-day ArtFest in February brings the gallery to the streets of downtown, exposing residents and visitors to 200 artists that often dont participate in other area arts fairs. The event, says executive director Sharon McAllister, is about bringing the arts experience to the public. Our creative ability to do things impacts the community, she says. By living in this community leaders of the arts organization bring talent to the community, people like (Florida Rep producing artistic director) Robert Cacioppo or Lydia Black. Could you imagine what our community would be like without people like Robert, Lydia or myself? In Charlotte County, nonprofit arts organizations generated $21 million in economic stimulation in 2008, says Judy Malbuisson, executive director of the Arts and Humanities Council of Charlotte County, a consortium of arts, culture, social and civic groups. We describe ourselves as the chamber of the arts, she says. Our mission is to promote what our members are doing, bring people to the arts and arts to the people. The council backs events like Art Sensation, photography expos, plein air festivals and the Visual Arts Centers biennial national art show, and works with the Military Heritage Museum and Charlotte Symphony. It was also instrumental in launching Frontier Days and Empty Bowls, an annual fundraiser that fights hunger and introduces newcomers to ceramics. Both events were started with grants from the council, says Ms. Malbuisson. Groups promoting the arts have also had to slash budgets as the elimination of federal grants increased competition for those remain. It used to be that we would receive one grant for every 10 we applied for. Now its one out of 20, says Ms. Hamilton, whose organization is also funded by membership fees and donations. Our county has 59 nonprofit groups and 100 galleries and artists studios. Weve lost some because of the economy but weve grown in seven years. The arts were on of the factors that influenced me to live here. Southwest Florida a melting pot of transplanted residents from other places tends to encourage a more personal, hands-on experience with the arts that in turn multiples its impact on residents and community. Im from New York, and you went to the museum, the theater or a concert, says Ms. Malbuisson. Here, you can get involved. I call this the greenhouse of the arts. When I was with the Charlotte Players, people auditioned who had masters degrees in theater but became a nurse to pay bills. There were people who had never been on stage before and were starring in shows a couple of years later. Art is like everything to a community just as infrastructure and a good healthcare system, says Ms. McAllister. If you dont have good symphonies, theaters and visual arts, people wont move here or raise their children here. The people you need for a strong community will not live where there isnt art or culture.

PENDING Our building division led the way with 300 new home sales, an astounding 51 percent increase over the previous year, Mr. Stock says, adding the average sales price of the homes sold was up 12 percent.Elsewhere within the Stock family of companies, Noble Title conducted 492 closings, an 11 percent increase over 2010; Stock Financial more than doubled its revenue in 2011; and Serenity Pool & Spa recorded a 240 percent increase in sales, with 191 pool packages sold. The company launched five new residential projects in 2011 and has plans for more in 2012, Mr. Stock says. By the beginning of last year, most of the single-family neighborhoods at Lely Resort and Paseo were nearly sold out, he says. As a result, we debuted two new major neighborhoods Lakoya at Lely Resort and Esperanza at Paseo (in Fort Myers). Lakoya is a 242-acre enclave with a private gated entrance, classical gardens, choreographed fountains and paved walking paths. Phase I of Lakoya offers 149 homes across five series of floor plans. Homes have lake, golf course and nature preserve views. Eleven furnished models are open. Esperanza, the northern phase of Paseo, is encircled by the pristine environment of Six Mile Cypress Slough. It features newly redesigned versions of Paseos existing single-family homes and a brand new twin villa product being offered by Stock Construction for the first time. Furnished models open this month with a grand opening set for Friday, Jan. 27. Expanding its luxury home operations, Stock became a preferred builder at Mediterra and closed on 11 homesites in the Buonasera neighborhood of estate-sized single-family homes. The company also launched sales in the two neighborhoods it acquired in late 2010. Secoya Reserve is on Livingston Road north of Immokalee Road; Black Bear Ridge is on Vanderbilt Beach Road east of 1-75 and west of CR 951. Expansion plans for 2012 include the launch of the final neighborhood at Olde Cypress and sales of new custombuilt homes at Quail West. Stock is also preparing to release details of a new Build-On-Your-Lot program that will allow homebuyers to choose from dozens of award-winning Stock floor plans and have them built on their home sites throughout Southwest Florida.And the awards go toYet again, Stock Development was showered with awards in 2011. Lely Resort took home 27 Sand Dollar Awards from the Collier Building Industry Association, and the company earned seven Pinnacle Awards from Lee Building Industry Association. Lely Resort also earned three Aurora Awards, while Paseo won two Aurora Awards. Stock has more than 40 furnished models on display across five communities. At Lely Resort, a total of nine neighborhoods of flats, townhomes, coach homes, twin villas, single-family homes and estate homes are offered with prices beginning in the $180,000s.

Shes a short, fiery redhead with a good heart and a big mouth. She followed me into the bathroom as I stood in front of the mirror, curling iron in hand, and leaned against the doorway. And so when I was in Spain, she said, the guys there were really cute. Very Latin, you know? I nodded and looked at her in the mirror over my head. Yeah, they Right. So, were sitting at this restaurant by the beach and this guy comes up. Real flirtatious, you know? Yeah, Ive So, hes talking to my friend and Im like, Hey, what about me? I let the piece of hair Id been curling fall against my shoulder and rolled a new strand while the friend went on and on and on until I finished curling my whole head. Then she followed me into the bedroom. And that night we were going to meet up with him and his friends. You know how in Spain they start so late? I was So, there we were getting ready to go out and I had on these really high heels. You know the ones Im talking about? I saw them Im getting dressed and my friend comes in and shes like, What are you wearing? She talked while I put on my makeup, talked while I changed into my work clothes, talked as I stepped out the front door. Ill see you tonight, I said. Your friends will be there? The guys? I snuck out before she had the chance to follow. Heres the thing about this tiny fireball: She searches for men constantly in bars, in clubs, at the grocery store but she thinks all the good men are hiding. Why else, she says, cant she find a man? What she doesnt realize is that its not her search thats flawed. Its something more personal. At the bar that night, I drank a round with my guy friends before she showed up. Over hard cider and a plate of cheese fries, I quizzed Miguel on his required qualities for a girlfriend. Number one, he said, we have to have a physical attraction. OK, OK. Ive grilled enough guys to know the standard. But what else? She has to be a good listener, he said. In fact, nearly every man Ive asked over the years has rated being a good listener in his top five girlfriend qualities. Most put it in their top three. But when my chatty friend stopped by the bar, she wasnt interested in listening to anything the guys had to say. Instead she brought her own talking points. Your friend sure talks a lot, Miguel said later as we left the bar. I often wonder why women with otherwise great qualities hurt their chances in love by making the men they meet their verbal dumping grounds. Instead of rat tling on, my red-haired friend would do better to pause, take a deep breath and give sincere listening a shot. Perhaps when she isnt chasing the sound of her own voice she might finally find what shes looking for. SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSEasy listener t c w p artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 C3 Comedian Tim Walkoe at 239-213-3049 or 3058 Location: 755 8th Ave., S. Naples, Fl. 34102 Tickets $25at the Norris Center in Cambier Park Back by Popular Demand and One Night Only! Holocaust Museum & Education Center hosts Project Tolerance: Faces of Anne FrankThe Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida presents Project Tolerance: Faces of Anne Frank on exhibit through January. One of the worlds most recognized Holocaust victims, Anne Frank kept a diary of her and her familys lives while hiding in an attic from the Nazis. Sanibel artist Myra Robertss 30 original oil paintings of Miss Franks life took nearly two years to create. They depict the innocence and joy that was ultimately lost in Miss Franks young life. Project Tolerance: Faces of Anne Frank, is the focus for Ms. Robertss artistic and social commentary on the intolerance and bigotry that still plagues the world today. Art that raises consciousness is vital, the artist says. My hope is that through this project, we can make the world a better place to live. Fort Myers journalist Ella Nayor has collaborated with Ms. Roberts for the Naples exhibit. Ms. Nayors new book, Faces of Tolerance: Everybody Counts, details the lives of some Holocaust survivors living in Florida and also features interviews with people who have been marginalized or faced intolerance and prejudice. Included are the homeless and disabled, and victims of homophobia and racism. It is my dream that through our work, we will spark thought and enlightenment about intolerance and hatred, Ms. Nayor says. If we start taking the time to see each other as people all belonging to one human family, we can begin to live more peacefully as a planet. The museum will host the artist and writer for a discussion at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25. A portion of proceeds from art, catalog and book sales will benefit the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. Ms. Roberts and Ms. Nayor also give multimedia educational presentations on the project. For more information, visit www. holocaustmuseumswfl.org or www.projecttolerance.com.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 No, Im going to be Madame Thenardier one day, Ms. Hamic told her. I didnt want to be the kid. I wanted to be the person who made people laugh, she explains, adding it was the role that made her realize she wanted to be an actor. It showed me that you could be a performer for a living, you could tour the country, she says. And now, 24 years later, shes doing exactly that. Ms. Hamic is touring in the 25th anniversary production of Les Misrables, playing the very role that inspired her to become an actor: Madame Thenardier, an innkeepers wife who steals from the dead and cheats the living. The character, who is Ms. Hamics polar opposite, helps provide the comic relief for the show. Im living my dream, the actress says. When the tour played Los Angeles for seven weeks, at the very same theater where shed first seen the show, her parents and grandmother attended the big opening night. Life had come full circle; her family was in the audience, and she was on stage performing the role that had inspired her career. The national tour plays at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples Jan. 24-29. Limited tickets remain available.Local rootsLocal theatergoers will surely remember Ms. Hamic from her roles at the now-defunct Naples Dinner Theatre, where she performed shows such as The Pirates of Penzance and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (in which she stood on a desk and belted out the gospel-tinged Brotherhood of Man). And she was the lead in Once Upon a Mattress, playing the irrepressible Princess Winifred who, upon making her first appearance on stage, spat out a mouthful of water, having just swum the moat. In those performances, you could feel the audience perk up the moment she stepped on stage. Theatergoers just love her. She possesses that certain ineffable quality, that inner glow, that draws them to her, even when shes only part of the chorus.Feather in her capWe all knew shed become famous somehow, because she was meant to be a performer, says Neapolitan Debi Guthery, who acted in Mame with Ms. Hamic at the dinner theater in the 2003-04 season. Were all waiting for her to be on Broadway. Shes just wonderful. She has the it factor. She has that drive and the talent. Shes a triple threat: she can dance, sing and act, says Ms. Guthery, recalling that Ms. Hamic was the dance captain for Mame. Its really cool that Shawna gets to play that role (in Les Miz), she says. Im very happy for her. But its not a big surprise. I always knew I would see her somewhere, someday, in a big show or on a big tour. The role, Ms. Guthrey adds, should help Ms. Hamic get a leg up on the competition when she gets back to New York. Its great to have this national tour on her resume. Ms. Haic says coming back to Naples is kind of a homecoming. I loved doing shows at the Naples Dinner Theatre, she says. Im sad it wont be there. So much started there for me. The theater closed in April 2007. She remembers sitting backstage several years ago, talking with fellow actor Joe Spieldener about the shows that had inspired them to be in theater. Mr. Spieldener, who played the Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance with Ms. Hamic, is also performing in Les Miz as Grantaire and is the understudy for Javert, one of the lead characters. After Naples she performed at Mt. Gretna Playhouse in Pennsylvania, where she got her equity card. She moved back to New York City and started doing readings and shows with the New York Musical Theatre Festival. There, she says, I was performing in small things and getting close to big shows. A couple of years ago, the festival named her its Next Broadway Sensation, an award for which she beat out hundreds of other contestants. Her prize: a fully produced cabaret show at Joes Pub in New York City. In 2010, she was cast in Twist, a show directed by Debbie Allen that played at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta.Her roleWhen she learned there was going to be a 25th anniversary national tour of Les Miz, she says, I said, Well, its mine. But her agent thought she was too young for the role and wouldnt submit her. So Ms. Hamic went to an open call and auditioned on her own. First, she auditioned for the casting director. Then she was called back to audition for the director and music director, who liked her enough to ask her to return for a work session. Its more like a preparation, she explains about a work session, to see how you work together, how you respond to their direction. They say, Try it this way, Try it that way. Its just a way of getting to know you a little bit more, and to see if youll be a good fit. During the 40-minute session, she says, the director said to her, Youre having a really good time. And she was. It was one of the very few times I wasnt nervous (during an audition), even a little bit, she says. Not a single stitch. No nerves at all. The director asked why she wasnt nervous. So I told him the story about (seeing Les Miz as a child and how) I told my mother, Thats going to be me. I said, Even if this is all that happens, Im going to enjoy every single second Im in this room. Then she was called back for an unexpected second work session, with the director of the London production. His direction was the opposite of what the American director had asked her to do, and Ms. Hamic left the audition thinking she had blown her chance at the role. But then came the final callback, when she was introduced to the musicals composer, Claude-Michel Schonberg, and author/dramatist Alain Boublil, who had flown in from France. The room was filled with 20 to 30 people, she remembers, including both directors, the head of the casting office, casting associates and the composer and dramatists entourages. When you get that many people in the room, this is no longer an audition, its a small cabaret, Ms. Hamic says. I thought, Lets go! I can work this room. I did what I thought was right. And it got her the job. She was one of the first people they called. Ms. Hamic immediately called her mother. I said, Hey, Ma! Remember that promise I made to you? Rehearsals began at the 42nd Street Studios on Oct. 7, 2010, and the first official show, not counting previews, was Nov. 19 at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey. Shes given up her New York apartment and put her things in storage.A tough scheduleIts hard work, she says about being on tour. She works six days a week, and on the seventh, travels to the next city. The production has already played Seattle, Denver, Dallas and San Antonio, among others. Its incredibly draining, she says. The show is three hours long and (theres a huge) amount of energy I need to put into it. But its worth every single bit of effort. Im one of the few people in my business making a living, making a substantial one, doing what I want to be doing. Im lucky. Im blessed. And I worked incredibly hard for it, so Im very happy. Shes just been asked and has agreed to extend her contract through the end of 2012. The 25th anniversary national tour production has an updated orchestration and totally new staging. The iconic stage turntable from the original production is gone. Part of our imagery and scenes are projections based on the paintings and drawings of Victor Hugo, who was not only a writer, but a prolific artist and activist, Ms. Hamic says. Some of the projections move, she adds, so when the cast sings One More Day at the end of Act One and (the actors) are walking, the street moves behind them. Its cinematic in a sense. Its the same story people love, but a fresh new take on it, which is lovely. What would she like to do next? I would love to stay with the show if it went to Broadway, she says. Shes also never met Jenny Galloway, whose portrayal of Madame Thenardier inspired her to go into acting. I love speaking to kids, she says. I always wanted to be like the woman who inspired me to follow my life path. If I can do that for somebody, even if I dont meet them, thats great. If I can help inspire someone to find their own passion, thats what I love. I have the drive for this business. I have the passion and the joy for it. I feel I was born to do this, and that helps me going forward when things get difficult. Shes living proof that dreams can come true. (They can) if you work hard for them, she says. You cant just sit back and expect them to come to you. Youve got to work as hard as anyone else, and sometimes your dreams come true. Sometimes it works out perfectly. Im blissfully happy.

BEFORE AFTER Love Your Kitchen Again! Everyone knows theyre going to die, but no one really believes it. This ironclad belief in our own immortality also spreads to family and friends: Its inconceivable that someone we love will die. Which is why it can be so difficult to accept when it does happen. Its incomprehensible; the mind refuses to believe it.He cant really be dead, we think. Surely hes coming back.The writer Joan Didion experienced this when her husband, John Gregory Dunne, also a writer, had a heart attack and died suddenly at their dining room table. Though paramedics worked on him for 45 minutes, they were unable to revive him. He was 71. Later, though she knows he is dead, Ms. Didion cant bring herself to throw out his shoes. He would need shoes if he were to return, she says. She wants an autopsy, because she reasons that if theyre able to discover what went wrong, they might be able to fix it. She calls this magical thinking, a state of mind that can occur during grieving where one reasons, If I do this, then this will occur even if the reasonings not logical at all. She wrote about her husbands death and the year that followed in The Year of Magical Thinking. A bestseller and winner of a National Book Award, the book was adapted into a one-woman Broadway play starring Vanessa Redgrave. (Although the play also deals with Ms. Didions daughters health problems and unexpected early death, the author did not write about her daughters death in the book.) Florida Repertory Theatres staging of The Year of Magical Thinking, running through Feb. 4 in the studio theater adjacent to the main stage in downtown Fort Myers, stars Sara Morsey, who was last seen at Florida Rep as the pill-popping alcoholic matriarch in last seasons August: Osage County. The play is, in a word, intense. Almost like a Greek tragedy, it begins with a warning to the audience: This happened on Dec. 30, 2003. That may seem a while ago, but it wont when it happens to you. And it will happen to you. The details will be different, but it will happen to you. Thats what Im here to tell you. She quotes the first lines she wrote after her husband died, the first words that became the opening to her bestselling memoir: Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends. For those whove experienced a loss, seeing The Year of Magical Thinking is a comfort in some ways. Someone else has experienced what Im going through, you think. But it is also, in many ways, a grueling night at the theater. To say the subject matter is difficult is an understatement. And this might keep some people away. (On opening night, the tiny studio theater was not sold out.) But Ms. Morsey is superb actress, and Maureen Heffernan a masterful director. (She directed August: Osage County, Doubt and Dancing at Lughnasa, to name a few, at Florida Rep.) Ms. Heffernan has staged the play well. Throughout its 100 minutes of one woman talking to the audience and retelling her story, Ms. Morsey gets up and moves about the tiny space in ways that seem quite natural, effectively breaking up the monologue. Costume designer Judith Skyles has dressed Ms. Morsey in a simple white cowl neck sweater and brown pants with a scarf used as a shawl. Christopher Simpsons set is solid and substantial for the small space, creating a room with a fireplace and wainscoting, a flower-print easy chair and rug. The back wall is shorn in half, as if a great quake has separated it, and one side of the curtains on the window are ragged and torn. The lighting, by Kate Smith, is distracting, however, because were not only able to see the other audience members but even the lighting and sound board. Throughout the play, I was unfortunately hyper-aware of the various sounds that were introduced, such as the crash of waves when Ms. Morsey talks about the beach.Some issuesWith such a talented actress and director, I was expecting to be bowled over by The Year of Magical Thinking and was very surprised when I wasnt. The problems with the play stem from the material: Ms. Didion is a very stylized writer. Her carefully crafted sentences are so mannered they dont let us get lost in the play. Were constantly reminded that were sitting in a theater, listening to someone; were not drawn in as we normally would be. Also, Ms. Didion has an odd habit of keeping us at arms length, at pushing us away. Yes, shes talking about personal matters, but she also simultaneously keeps us removed from the emotions. We dont really get a feel for what her relationship with her husband was like; we dont get a sense of their camaraderie or their closeness. We do get stories about her walking out on him, or always needing to have the last word in an argument. Are there things shes not telling us, or was their relationship more businesslike and cerebral? The cold detachment of the words has an off-putting effect. Ms. Morsey does show emotion a few times, such as the tenderness displayed when shes talking to her daughter Quintana, who was in a hospital herself, in a coma, when her father died. Those rare moments in the play are moments of life and connection. Its unfortunate there arent more of them. Ms. Didion is called a cool customer at the hospital when her husband, dead on arrival, is brought in. Part of that, surely, is from the shock and from having to force herself to function and talk and take care of matters in a calm, adult way. But I wonder how much of that is also her actual personality, if shes always a cool customer. She seems to be someone who always needs to be in control of a situation and her emotions. That tight grip presents a challenge to Ms. Morsey. In staying true to the character, the person of Joan Didion, she cannot display warmth or great emotion, which hinders her connection with the audience. On the tables and shelves facing the actor are numerous photographs of Ms. Didion and Mr. Dunne, and photos of her with her daughter. Theyre facing the actor and are not really seen all that well by the audience. On the mantel, which the audience can see, stand more photo frames, but they contain no images, only blackness. This is a good analogy for Ms. Didions play: She sees more and knows more than shes telling us. Were not getting the whole picture. The Year of Magical Thinking has moments of insight, moments of emotion and moments that are food for thought. In trying to comprehend what happened, the playwright gathered up the paramedics records and hospital records, the autopsy report and even the doormans record log. But drama is found in emotions, not the recitation of facts. The audience leaves wiser, but somber and subdued.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 C11 1/2Is it worth $10? YesHave you ever had the experience where one small thing takes you out of an otherwise decent movie? Contraband is an average action flick with plausible twists and a fun story. But the villain, played by Giovanni Ribisi, speaks in a weak, nasally voice that belies his tattoos and gun-toting tough guy demeanor. If were to take him seriously as a man wholl kill the heros family, he shouldnt talk like a science geek. This doesnt ruin the movie because there are many other things going on (perhaps too many), but it does hinder the credibility of the characters. Oddly enough, integrity is everything in this smuggling story. As happens to many reluctant protagonists, Chris (Mark Wahlberg) has left the lucrative and dangerous life of international smuggling behind him. But when his dumbass brother-in-law Andy (Caleb Landry Jones) botches a job and ends up owing drug dealer Tim Briggs (Ribisi) $700,000, its up to Chris to settle the score. Chris wife Kate (Kate Beckinsale) hates that he has to take a cargo boat to Panama to retrieve counterfeit bills, but his friend Sebastian (Ben Foster) stays behind to protect her. Naturally, everything that can go wrong does go wrong in Panama, and to director Baltasar Kormakurs credit, its entertaining to see Chris maneuver through his ordeal. Kormakur is popular in his homeland of Iceland, but this is likely the first time American audiences will see his work. His style is similar to that of Tony Scott (Man On Fire, Dj vu): many grainy, coarse images with washed-out colors, quick edits, jarring action and swift camera movements, all of which help maintain an up-tempo pace that delivers a very visceral viewing experience. That said, the story probably has a few too many tangents for its own good, even though Kormakur nicely brings everything together in the end. Wahlberg is not a great actor and likely never will be, but hes a good action star and does well here. Ribisi is a weak villain never a good thing when a story requires a heavy antagonist but Foster is strong as Chris partner, and the supporting cast (led by J.K. Simmons) is stellar. Then theres Beckinsale, whos perfectly fine but leaves us wondering why shed be interested in this role in the first place. Theres literally nothing for her to do besides scream and play the concerned mother, which is a waste of her beauty, time and talent. After headlining the Underworld movies and more than holding her own in comedy (Click) and drama (Snow Angels), her career should be well past the point of menial supporting roles meant more for hottie up-and-comers. Come on, Kate, you have to be more daring than this. Contraband was right to focus on family values and action, but it doesnt discuss enough of how smuggling is done, which law-abiding moviegoers would no doubt find fascinating. After all, thats its real appeal; weve seen this storyline before and have a pretty good idea how its going to play out. Give us some new stuff to keep us entertained. As is, this movie is good but underwhelming, a entertaining excursion but not one youll remember two days later. Sometimes thats just what you need.

Show time is 7:30 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Sunday. As the legend goes, Don Giovanni Don Juan in Mozarts musical version of the story was the quintessential rake a womanizing scoundrel with a list of amorous conquests so long that his righthand man needs an entire aria just to outline it. The opera has been described as a comedy, and it has any number of uproarious moments. But theres far more to Don Giovanni than just a series of big laughs, just as the notorious Don is more than just an unprincipled, singleminded ladies man. The opera premiered Oct. 29, 1787, at the Prague Italian Opera. The Opera Naples production stars bass Matthew Trevina of the San Francisco Opera in the title role; bass Wes Mason as Masetto; soprano Amanda Hall as Donna Anna; bass Leroy Lehr of the Metropolitan Opera as Don Pedro; tenor Brian Cheny as as Don Ottavio; Jason Hardy as Leporello; and soprano Steffanie Pearce, and founding artistic director of Opera Naples, as Donna Elvira.

Awesome Wings!Toys often were made to resemble famous people or characters in plays, books or TV shows. Sometimes the character that inspired the toy is forgotten, but the toy remains popular with collectors because it is so well-designed, unusual or lovable. Raggedy Ann and Andy are still recognized by young and old, and the storybooks featuring them remain in print. But Johnny Gruelle, who wrote and illustrated the books, created other characters that are forgotten today. Johnny Mouse and the Wishing Stick is a childrens book published in 1922. It was based on stories and illustrations from Gruelles monthly series, Johnny Mouse and the Woozgoozle, which appeared in Womans World magazine in 1920 and 1921. The Johnny Mouse felt doll was patented in July 1921. The magazine sold it by mail order for $1. The gray felt mouse has a long pointy pink nose, shoe-b utton ey es, one ear and a yellow hat that covers the missing ear. The mouses body was dressed in a printed shirt, felt trousers, a yellow neck bow and felt shoes. His clothes could not be removed. The identification of the mouse doll as a design by Gruelle added to the value when the 10-inch doll sold at a Theriaults auction in Anaheim, Calif., in July 2011. It cost the new owner $1,024. Q: I bought a pair of metal candle sconces at a recent estate sale because they looked interesting. I bought them for a buck each. When I came home, I realized that the word Wilton is stamped on the backs. Each has two candleholders below a flat circular piece decorated with a curved-line cross, hearts, circles and a scalloped border. Id like to know more about Wilton and the value of these sconces. A: The Wilton family established its first metal manufacturing company in Wrightsville, Pa., in 1892. Wilton Products was founded in about 1935. It produced candleholders, bottle openers, garden plaques, mechanical banks, trivets, wall decorations and other decorative items at plants in Wrightsville and Santa Barbara, Calif. Wilton Products closed in 1989, but some of its products have been reintroduced by Wilton Armetale, another Wilton company. The curved-line cross on your sconce is called a lauburu or Basque cross.

It is a character from a book by Johnny Gruelle, best known as the author of the Raggedy Ann books. The felt mouse sold for $1,024 at a Theriaults auction held in Anaheim, Calif.Rockwell paintings. I must have spent a total of about $1,000 on them. How do I go about selling them? A: Unfortunately for you and a lot of people who bought collector plates, the value of these plates has plummeted during the past 30 years. The plates are being offered online for $10-$15 each, but many sell for even less. Q: My parents bought an ornate revivalstyle dining room buffet, server, table and chairs during the Depression. The buffet and server have labels that read: Rockford Republic Furniture Co., Rockford, Ill. All the pieces except the 10-legged table are in good shape. What do you think the set is worth? A: From the 1890s until the Depression, Rockford was home to a boom in furniture manufacturing. Rockford Republic Furniture Co. was founded in 1917, when it took over the factory of the bankrupt Rockford Frame & Fixture Co. J.A. Carlstrom, an employee of the fixture company, headed up the group that started the new company. You are better off selling your set locally because of the cost of moving furniture. Rockford Republic furniture is well-made, so you might be able to sell the set for several hundred dollars, even if the buyer has to refinish the table.

COMING TO GERMAIN ARENAhis world would soon crash around him, explains TSO creator Paul ONeill. At 25, Beethoven realized he was going deaf. He could have given up on his music and life and no one would have judged him harshly, but instead he went on to write some of the greatest compositions ever created. His music would bring delight, joy and compassion to billions, but he himself would never hear his last works. TSO debuted in 1996. Since then, all three of the orchestras holiday-themed albums have proven enduring blockbusters, returning annually to the top 10 on Billboards Top Chart Albums and Top Holiday Albums charts.

Im betting that the next it wine will be grenache. With well-balanced red fruit flavors and a range of intensity from mediumbodied to powerhouse, grenache plays a role in many blends. Its predominant in the Rhone district of France and factors largely in many Australian and California blends. Worldwide, it is the fourth most widely planted red grape variety. No matter what anyone tells you, size matters when it comes to wines. Size, that is, as it pertains to production. There have to be enough grapes to produce the amount of wine it takes to satisfy demand. Thats one reason vouvray from France and gruner veltliner from Austria will never strike it big: Neither district has enough vineyard production to sustain a major push into the marketplace. Price also matters. When it comes to really big sellers, the $10 price point appears to be the magical number. According to the Nielsen Company, sales last year in the $9-$12 category totaled nearly $2 billion, more than 20 percent of non-restaurant sales. Think about the stars of yesteryear such as white zinfandel and shiraz which were available in mass quantities at low prices. The biggest varietal sellers in the United States continue to be chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and pinot grigio, Nielsen reports in this months edition of Wine Business Monthly. Pinot noir and sauvignon blanc are close behind and continue to grow in sales, but arent likely to be the next rage. Sauvignon blanc can be herbaceous and citrusy, and not necessarily food friendly. Pinot noir generally sells well above the magical $10 price point. Other worthy wines might not make the final grade as well. Malbec has a certain rusticity, with powerful tannins and lip-staining color. The Nielsen Company does not track malbec sales in stores, but total imports from Argentina are on the rise. California winemakers thought syrah could be the next big wine, after seeing the voluminous imports from Australia take a strong grip on the marketplace. But, although fruity and food friendly, the wine never took off here. So lets get back to grenache. In June 2010, the first international Grenache Symposium took place in France. As reported in the August 2010 edition of Wine Business Monthly, wine expert and editor of Decanter Magazine Stephen Spurrier called grenache the unsung hero of the wine world, noting there is no more versatile or dependable grape variety. The Grenache Symposium website, www.grenachesymposium.com, quotes noted wine authority Jancis Robinson as saying, It is high time that grenache/ garnacha enjoy some time wallowing in the spotlight of international attention. In the Wine Spectator March 31, 2010, edition, James Laube wrote: Grenache is a grape that seemingly has it all. It can make amazingly complex, detailed and age worthy wines witness the great wines from Chteauneuf-du-Pape or Priorat (in Spain, the grape goes by the name Garnacha). It also excels in value wines, notably in blends from the Ctes du Rhne. Todays wine drinkers continue to look for value, and I believe grenache can be a winner, because there are already a number of inexpensive grenache-based wines available. In California, few winemakers sell it as a varietal, but the emerging trend of Rhone-style wines has sparked renewed interest in the grape there. Look to Spain to be a big player in the growth of grenache, with the second largest acreage in the world planted with garnacha. Quality, availability and a declining euro all will add to the popularity of Spanish wines. This weeks wine picks are all grenache-based. Weekly wine picks: Alto Moncayo Veraton 2008 ($28): Fresh black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors, round in the mouth with a nicely balanced finish with a touch of spice. Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos 2009 ($18): Big black cherry, blackberry and flower aromas, following through to the palate with nicely structured red fruit and plum flavors. The finish is long and smooth, with a touch of mineral and spice. Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche 2009 ($12): Deep rich purple color, with spicy aromas and juicy fruit flavors of black cherry and spice, ending with a light mineral finish. Tablas Creek Cotes de Tablas 2009 ($30): From Paso Robles, Calif., this wine has lush red fruit aromas and flavors of black cherry and plum, with a long lingering finish of cherry and spice. w a U n p jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com n ao ok v a l ue w th e C Tod a Left: Tablas Creek Cotes de Tablas 2009.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 19-25, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 The Bay House Restaurant in Naples has long been a favorite spot to enjoy Southern cuisine dressed in its Sunday best food that respects its heritage while reaching for a more exalted culinary plane. With entrees priced $26-$32, though, its not a destination I can revisit often. Thats why I was pleased to hear that the owners had rolled out a new, more casual concept in what used to be an expansive bar next to the restaurant. At Tierneys Tavern, you can savor similarly Southerninspired and equally well-executed food for much less money. Entrees top out at $24, and its quite possible to dine well for much less. To call it a tavern might be a tad misleading in some ways. Yes, its a less formal space mixing pub-style food (burgers, kielbasa) with an abundance of raw bar staples (crab claw, oysters, shrimp). On the other hand, the draft beer choices arent what youd expect at an upscale tavern; only a couple of craft brews were available in bottles. Regardless, if most bar food were this good, Id be spending a lot more time hunting down taverns. The restaurant quickly filled up on a recent weeknight. It seems Bay House and Tierneys are not Naples best-kept dining secret anymore after 20-plus years, despite what the website says. Perched on the banks of the Cocohatchee River, the restaurant and bar are nestled among old oaks and mangroves and have plenty of windows for enjoying the unique vista. Once dusk settles in, darkness envelopes the wood-lined dining room. Scattered lamps offer only dim light for reading the menu and appreciating the presentation of the food. We found the low light a bit vexing and noticed one nearby patron did, too, as hed brought his own hand-held lamp. The wine list is generous, with two pour sizes of two dozen wines by the glass. We started with glasses of 2009 Rosenblum Syrah ($7.75 for 6 ounces, $10.75 for 9 ounces) and 2010 Giesen Sauvignon Blanc ($9.95 and $13.95), both of which were good choices. We liked having the choice of a larger pour; one standard glass is never enough for us, at least and two becomes too costly. The menus coastal cuisine spans a broad range, from the North Atlantic to Carolina Low Country, around the Florida peninsula and up the Gulf to New Orleans. Youll find New England lobster, Beaufort (aka Frogmore) stew, Charleston crab dip and Cajun shrimp and grits. Many of these dishes are created with ingredients from local purveyors who are spotlighted on a chalkboard beside the front door, including Rabbit Run Farm in Buckingham, Captain Curly of the Fort Myers Beach shrimp fleet and Island Crab Co. on Pine Island. Kudos to the Tierneys for supporting local farmers and fishermen. Our seaside sojourn began with a dip into the Atlantic for Jonah crab claws ($16) and a trio of Southern appetizers served in small Mason jars ($11). Jonahs are similar to stone crabs but live in cold water. Theyre not widely served down here, so I thought Id try them. What I found was that they dont have the rich, sweet flavor of their Southern cousins. For the Southern Collection, you can select from a half-dozen nibbles. We chose Charleston crab dip, pimento cheese and house pickles; other options are pickled rock shrimp, seafood salad and she-crab soup. Each is also available individually for $3 to $5. The crab dip was our favorite because of its fresh, sweet flavor and creamy texture. Fresh tarragon also added an unexpected and interesting note of anise. Shredded aged cheddar brought richness and texture to the cheese spread, another Southern tradition made with mayonnaise and pimentos. The pickles? Fine, but nothing extraordinary. All in all, this is a good way to sample the South, though we quickly ran out of the lavash served as a vehicle for the spreads. Our waitress noticed that the crab tray arrived without spoons for the mustard and cocktail sauces and quickly remedied the situation. She also promptly brought another claw cracker after we requested it and then returned with warm, damp paper towels and lemon wedges with which we cleaned our messy hands. The goodwill generated by her thoughtful attentions helped smooth over the fact that our entrees arrived when we were only halfway through our appetizers. Somehow, the entrees were fired up too soon, and they sat for a bit as we tried to continue enjoying our appetizers. Thus, by the time my companion tucked into his shrimp and grits ($14), they had cooled noticeably. The shrimp were plump and juicy and the grits good and creamy, but the dish was surprisingly mild-mannered. Even with its horseradish cream and diced andouille sausage, it lacked the expected spunk. No such issues with the Sea BLT ($18), which was a room-temperature dish anyway. From bottom to top: a bed of arugula; a layer of fried green tomatoes; a salad of lobster, shrimp and crab; a sprinkling of roasted corn and crumbled bacon. The contrast of crunchy and creamy, salty and sweet in this dish would delight any discerning palate. The same could be said for the taverns Southern Decadence ($10), one of those trendy, over-the-top desserts that you might see whipped up on Bravos Top Chef. Picture a small, sweet bourbon pecan tart with a buttery crust paired with generous scoop of sugar cane ice cream, a petite mousse-like sweet potato cremeux, a spoonful of heady corn-liquor gelee and, yes, chunks of salty, crunchy bacon brittle. Each element was divine on its own and also worked beautifully in concert with the other elements. If you prefer simpler sweets over delectably complicated ones, the big, puffy, sugar-coated beignets served with chocolate and caramel sauces ($9) will fill the bill as well as your tummy. Warning: One order is enough to serve at least two. Whichever part of coastal America you visit at Tierneys Tavern, save room for dessert.
