When the Economic Development Council voluntarily disbanded last fall, after reviewing a consultants study of the EDCs services and the overall business climate in Collier County, it approached the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce to pick up some of its programs and launch new ones recommended by the consultants proposed strategic plan. Less than five months later, progress has already been made. Last Friday, current and former board members of the EDC and the chamber announced the Partnership for Colliers Future Economy. The stated mission: to assist existing businesses (to) grow for the benefit of all Collier County citizens. Chamber President and CEO Mike Reagan told the crowd of 100 business leaders gathered at Naples Bay Resort for the announcement that 80 percent of all economic development or growth comes from existing businesses, what he calls an often used statistic based on a U.S. Small Business Administration report that uses a 60 to 80 percent figure.

Corporate or family-owned, print or electronic. Gannett, Bloomberg, Murdoch, Huffington, AP, The New York Times, Florida Weekly. NPR, PBS, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, Fox. Publishers, editors, reporters, photographers, artists, anchors, advertising executives. What, exactly, is good journalism in America? None of that, really. Instead, it boils down to 6-feet 1-inch of blueeyed Bean Town ball-buster named Richard Blood. Although he quit breathing last week in New York City at the age of 83, introductions are now in order. Professor Blood was and is journalism done right the engine in the rocket, the seed in the garden. I learned the craft from Blood two decades ago by running all over his classroom, which started in a cramped, second-floor office above The World Room at Columbia Universitys School of Journalism. From there, beginning in the morning and ending late afternoon or evening or in the small hours of the following day, his classroom extended to the five boroughs of New York City. I will now convey my education to you in a single column at no extra charge, since I already paid the bill. COMMENTARY rogerWILLIAMS email@example.com For $30,000, I got a cute little masters diploma and this, delivered from an immaculately dressed pit bull his shoes shined, his trousers and shirt lightly starched, his tie knotted formally under a square jaw, his storm-cloud brows banked over smoldering blue eyes, and all of it crowned in a disciplined cumulus of white hair: Williams, you can write. But good writing is only as good as the reporting. THE REPORTING, Williams. Work on THE REPORTING. Work on the details. Know the facts, the events, the public records, the private behavior, the voices especially the voices. Listen to what they say, study what they do. It was worth every penny. Here is blue-Blood journalism stripped down, equipped for any technology, every era and all terrain: Employ good storytelling to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable (as Finley Peter Dunne once said). Do it accurately, fairly and stylishly, too, pal. In a timely fashion, please. By 5 p.m. Thanks. Blood championed that notion. Hed been a hard-drinking probably hot-tempered city editor for the New York Daily News for years, even editing Jimmy Breslin (gently, he was fond of noting, which didnt quite square with the evidence at hand). But hed quit all that to marry a former nun and psychologist who saved him, he once told me. Carol. He had three children. I remember this, too: Born and raised in Boston, Blood had boxed in the Navy or the Merchant Marines. But the term is weak. He was a brawler by instinct and temperament with an Irish-Catholic conscience, the compulsion to make things better, a fondness for bright, vibrant women, a respect for tough men with humility, and an appreciation for fine language, fine cuisine and the New York Giants. He also harbored an explosive dislike of bullies, liars and con artists. Always, Blood insisted on doing the right thing, a phrase that only later assumed fashionable gravity. He picked about 15 students each semester and showed them what that meant. Columbia offered a variety of good classes taught by a variety of exceptional professors. I had a class with Anthony Lewis in First Amendment law. I had a class with Roger Rosenblatt in magazine writing. Roger, this is perfect. There is nothing I can add, Mr. Rosenblatt once wrote on one of my fancy-schmancy little magazine features. Professor Blood, teaching RW1 (Reporting and Writing), never put something that silly on a story. But he did put festive red marks all over it. At the heart of his class, you wrote eight or so sizzlers from the street, and then you worked with him and a few hand-chosen former students, his assistants, to make the stories better. You wandered around Harlem and called in to update Blood. You wandered around the Bronx or Crown Heights during a riot. You wandered around the U.N. during a gabfest. You found a pay phone (remember those?) and you called Blood. One assignment required you to sit around night court at 100 Centre Street talking to prostitutes, cops, drunks, public defenders, prosecutors, bail bondsmen, bedraggled families. Another put you on a night shift with a couple of New Yorks finest. When they found a ripe body in a fifth-floor walk-up, they called their shift sergeant. You called Blood. He wanted detail what they wore and carried, what they said, what it looked and smelled like, what happened. He wanted the drama up high, he wanted the language to ring like bells. And he wanted it by deadline. If you didnt meet Bloods deadline or his storytelling par, you got a second chance. Blow that, you were out. Thats what he promised. On the last night of his class in the late fall of 1992, a few students were still working feverishly in the newsroom to meet his 8 a.m. deadline. One of his favorites, a cheerful, frecklefaced Boston kid with a Harvard degree, was three stories down at the beginning of the evening. By dawn hed completed two. But the third remained a mess of notes, a few starts and stops, and a hell of a long way from a salvageable Blood story. I know, because I tried to help him tie it off, all night long. Even together we failed to pin down that final story. We failed to meet the standard of the class.At 9 a.m., Professor Blood called Matt into his office. The young man entered at a near shuffle, pale as a ghost, thin-lipped as a recruit. The rest of us stood in the hallway, mostly mute. Twenty wrenching minutes crawled by. Matt finally opened the door and stepped out. Speechlessly he turned away from us and disappeared down the hall. We were never to see him again. It broke everybodys heart, including Professor Bloods. And it characterized an unwavering Blood principle that outraged some administrators, those eyeballing future alumni gifts, no doubt: Stick to the standard. He did. And he did the right thing by all of us. Its called blue-Blood journalism. Promised and delivered. Promised and delivered: blue-Blood journalism

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 Eight youths, tending their flock of sheep in the snowy fields of Afghanistan, were exterminated last week by a NATO airstrike. They were in the Najrab district of Kapisa province in eastern Afghanistan. Most were reportedly between the ages of 6 and 14. They had sought shelter near a large boulder, and had built a fire to stay warm. At first, NATO officials claimed they were armed men. The Afghan government condemned the bombing and released photos of some of the victims. By Wednesday, NATO offered, in a press release, deep regret to the families and loved ones of several Afghan youths who died during an air engagement in Kapisa province Feb. 8. Those eight killed were not that different in age from Lance Cpl. Osbrany Montes De Oca, 20, of North Arlington, N.J. He was killed two days later, while on duty in Afghanistans Helmand province. These nine young, wasted lives will be the latest footnote in the longest war in United States history, a war that is being perpetuated, according to one brave, whistle-blowing U.S. Army officer, through a pattern of overt and substantive deception by many of Americas most senior military leaders in Afghanistan. Those words are written by Lt. Col. Danny Davis in his 84-page report, Dereliction of Duty II: Senior Military Leaders Loss of Integrity Wounds Afghan War Effort. A draft of that report, dated Jan. 27, 2012, was obtained by Rolling Stone magazine. It has not been approved by the U.S. Army Public Affairs office for release, even though Davis writes that its contents are not classified. He has submitted a classified version to members of Congress. Davis, a 17-year Army veteran with four combat tours behind him, spent a year in Afghanistan with the Armys Rapid Equipping Force, traveling more than 9,000 miles to most operational sectors of the U.S. occupation and learning firsthand what the troops said they needed most. In a piece he wrote in Armed Forces Journal (AFJ) titled Truth, lies and Afghanistan, Davis wrote of his experience, What I saw bore no resemblance to rosy official statements by U.S. military leaders about conditions on the ground. Speaking out is strongly discouraged in the U.S. military, especially against ones superiors. Davis whistle-blowing was picked up by The New York Times and Rolling Stone, whose reporter, Michael Hastings, told me, The fact is that you have a 17-year Army veteran whos done four tours two in Afghanistan and two in Iraq who has decided to risk his entire career he has 2 more years left before he gets a pension because he feels that he has a moral obligation to do so. Davis interviewed more than 250 people U.S. military personnel and Afghan nationals in his recent year in the war zone. He compared what he learned from them with optimistic projections from the likes of David Petraeus, former head of the militarys CENTCOM and of the U.S. military in Afghanistan, and now head of the CIA, who told Congress on March 15, 2011, that the momentum achieved by the Taliban in Afghanistan since 2005 has been arrested in much of the country, and reversed in a number of important areas. In his AFJ piece, Davis wrote, Instead, I witnessed the absence of success on virtually every level ... insurgents controlled virtually every piece of land beyond eyeshot of a U.S. or International Security Assistance Force base. His observations concur with the death of Osbrany Montes de Oca, whose girlfriend, Maria Samaniego, told the New York Daily News, He was walking out of the base and he was immediately shot. The number of U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan approaches 2,000, which is about the number of civilians killed there annually. Nic Lee, the director of the independent Afghanistan NGO Safety Office, wrote in his year-end report for 2011, The year was remarkable for being the one in which the US/NATO leadership finally acknowledged the unwinnable nature of its war with the Taliban.Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recently remarked, Hopefully by the midto latter part of 2013 well be able to make a transition from a combat role to a training, advise and assist role. Petraeus countered, saying the U.S. remains committed to ending the combat mission by the end of 2014. Meanwhile, images surface of U.S. Marines urinating on Afghan corpses, or posing with a Nazi SS flag, and the drumbeat continues, death by death. Lt. Col Davis wrote, When having to decide whether to continue a war, alter its aims or to close off a campaign that cannot be won at an acceptable price, our senior leaders have an obligation to tell Congress and the American people the unvarnished truth.

WGCU Public Media will soon celebrate its 30th year serving Southwest Florida. As part of the statewide public broadcasting education system, we have been honored to provide students, teachers and parents with the tools they need to be successful. Last year, for the first time in Floridas history, state support for public broadcasting was vetoed from the budget. For WGCU, that meant a $522,000 reduction of our overall $5 million revenue budget. This substantial cut in funding has greatly impacted the programs, services and educational outreach we are able to provide to the citizens of Southwest Florida. During the past year we have eliminated valuable part-time positions and reduced the hours of others. We have cut back on the production of documentaries that allow us to explore the history of Southwest Florida and provide historical documents for classrooms across our seven-county service area. We have curtailed outreach activities and put off replacing outdated equipment. As we look to the next fiscal year, without the reinstatement of state funding we will have to continue making cuts to the programs and services that are at the core of our mission to educate and engage our community. Each and every week, WGCU delivers more than 60 hours of standards-based childrens programs that help parents and caregivers prepare our children for school. We conduct workshops in schools and libraries to help kids improve their reading skills. Through our Curious Kids project, this year alone we have reached more than 500 families, providing them with skills to help their kids be life-long learners. On a statewide basis, for the past 40 years Florida Public Broadcasting Service stations have worked with the Florida Department of Education to provide educational resources to Floridas students, teachers, parents and citizens of all ages. Through educational initiatives like Curious Kids, Ready to Learn and KidVision Pre-K, FPBS stations utilize statewide standards-based, digital content that focuses on early childhood literacy and STEM skills to help further educate Floridas children. This year, FPBS stations will launch a new digital learning library for teachers and students called Florida PBS LearningMedia. This resource provides more than 14,000 digital learning objects video clips, documents, audio files, lesson plans and more selected by teams of content experts, curriculum specialists and classroom teachers to address the challenges and opportunities of education in the 21st century. Florida PBS LearningMedia will be available, free, to every teacher and student in every classroom and home in the state. The value Florida taxpayers get with public broadcasting is demonstrated throughout the state in remarkable and measurable ways. For every dollar invested by the state, more than $10 in services is realized by Floridians. These services reach more than 99 percent of Floridas population. The impact of last years elimination of state funding has been felt in every community in the state as public broadcasting stations cutback and in some cases eliminate programs and initiatives, thus impacting the quality of life for all Floridians. Thats why WGCU has teamed up with the state association of public broadcasters, FPBS, to ask you to contact Gov. Rick Scott and your local legislators and let them know what you think about state support for public broadcasting, not only in Southwest Florida but for every community across the state. For more information about how you can have your voice heard on this critical decision, go to www.wgcu.org and click on the FPBS logo on our homepage.

You would expect the focus of this column to profile someone on my show who makes a difference on the Paradise Coast. Im making an exception this week. My Aunt Doris died on Feb. 7 in Savannah, Ga., at the age of 94. Shes never been on my show, and she doesnt live on the Paradise Coast, but she truly was an amazing woman who made a difference in so many lives, including mine. She was a gifted teacher, a pioneer for women in the workplace and, as youll see, a beacon of light for anyone who knew her. Doris Thomas was born in Dothan, Ala., on March 1, 1917. She received her formal education from the Georgia Teachers College for Women and earned a masters degree in education from the University of Georgia. She began her teaching career at Anderson Street Elementary in Savannah and subsequently became principal of several Savannah schools at a time in our history when women were not in leadership roles. She later became assistant director of personnel for the Chatham Board of Education and retired in 1979 as the director of staff development in the school system. My Aunt Doris was truly color blind. She loved children (of all ages) irrespective of race, color or creed. An activist during the Civil Rights movement, she was a courageous leader in implementing integration in the segregated Chatham County School System. As a testament to the respect she earned professionally and personally, my Aunt Doris served as the president of the Georgia Association of Educators and the Georgia Association of Retired Teachers. She also became the president of her regional chapter of the AARP and was the founding president of Single Adults Living Triumphantly (SALT). She was active in the First Baptist Church of Savannah for 78 years, where she was one of the few members to be honored as Deacon for Life. Aunt Doris was a widow. She and her husband, Julian (Uncle Whip), were married 62 years before his death. By any measure, they were an unlikely couple and as different as night and day, but they were always fun to be around. Aunt Doris was a large woman, and Uncle Whip, part Cherokee Indian, was wiry. She amassed position power and responsibility in the school system, while he was the lead custodian in the same school system. In spite of any differences, they attended to each others needs and created a great environment where all felt welcome. Both had a terrific sense of humor and found humor in everyday events. I grew up in the Washington, D.C., area and always looked forward to Cousin Johnny, Aunt Doris and Uncle Whips only child, coming to visit. Johnny was four years my senior, and at age 12 or 13, I truly idolized him. Looking back, I dont know how he endured the visit, but he added so much to our home when he was there. I also looked forward to our summer visits to Savannah. Aunt Doris made sure we toured all the historical spots, and she made learning about them fun. I was only 8 or 9 years old, but I remember Aunt Doris making me feel so important and welcome. Four years ago, Cousin Johnny threw a 90th birthday party for Aunt Doris. When he asked for a list of people she wanted to be invited, she gave him 125 names, and 123 people attended. Im so pleased we were there. We drove to the funeral in Savannah. At the viewing, the florist, an elderly black man, stopped by with some flowers and paid his respects. It turns out that he was one of Aunt Doris students in elementary school, and he credits her with encouraging him to start his floral business so many years ago. The First Baptist Church of Savannah was packed for the service. It was so fitting that an annual childrens parade was going on just outside the church during her funeral. Im pretty sure that, in spirit, Aunt Doris served as the grand marshall of that parade. Her legacy will endure for generations to come.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 and Collier counties homeless children and families are on the rise. Mr. Ellisons shelter, St. Matthews House in Naples, is already above capacity and has more families on the waiting list. Its easy to understand when you look at a child, that they didnt choose this, says Mr. Ellison, president and CEO. He shares stories of single moms with maxed-out credit cards, fathers who lost their jobs and their savings, parents doing the best they can with the worst of circumstances. But the story he describes as the most profound, the story to really bring it home, happened to his son Ricky. One evening two years ago, when Ricky was in the fifth grade, Mr. Ellison and his boy went to eat dinner in the dining hall at the shelter. A little girl came running up to Ricky. Ricky, Ricky youre here too, she said. Oh, youre gonna love it here. Ricky knew the little girl from school. He had seen her on the playground. We made fun of her for being dirty, he told his dad after the evening meal at the shelter. And he cried. Ricky has been raised around the homeless He got me as a dad, says Mr. Ellison, who has been in charge at faith-based St. Matthews House since 2004 (before that, he was chaplain to the Collier County Sheriffs Office). But when Ricky saw the homeless as one of his schoolmates, a girl who was living out of a car before her family found the shelter, he saw the truth in what his father says: Its not who you think.Hidden among usAnd thats how Mr. Ellison defines the rising population coined as the new homeless or the situational homeless not some disheveled man sleeping under a bridge or on a park bench, but mothers and fathers who have lost their jobs and lost their homes, and whose children now find school the one place of consistency and stability in their young lives. Mr. Ellison himself has four boys. To them, he says, school means an interruption of Xbox time. But the children passing through St. Matthews House, children moving from motel room to motel room, from car to family or friend they love school. Its where they have something to eat, where theyre warm and dry and safe. And so they dont want to leave, even when theyre made fun of for being dirty, even when theyre surrounded by things they dont have. If only they could sleep at school. As Mr. Ellison drinks his coffee, children walk by his window, school busses bringing them home to the shelter. Thats something he sees more and more more children and more school busses as federal legislation allocates transportation to and from a childs school of origin, trying to minimize the disruption of the childs education by keeping them in the same school. I have no hope any government program will work, but I have every hope we can find a solution for every one of these families, he says of the shelter. Im not setting national policy, but last year we had nine families move into permanent homes. In five years, Floridas number of homeless children has escalated from fewer than 50,000 to just shy of 84,000, says the National Center on Family Homelessness. More than documenting the numbers of homeless children in each state, the center ranks the states from 1-to-50 (a rank of 50 being the worst), based on the extent of child homelessness, child well-being, risk for child homelessness and state planning and policies. Florida received a rank of 42. Lee County identified 1,300 students as homeless by the close of the 2010-11 school year. Charlotte County identified 495. Collier County, 1,407. So far, 968 Collier students have been identified as homeless this year, says Cynthia Rodriguez-Schweisthal, the school districts liaison for homeless education. When people hear more than 1,400 homeless students were identified in our schools last year, they ask, Where are they? Theyre everywhere, says Ms. Rodriguez-Schweisthal. Every school in Collier County has homeless students, every school. Where do they all live? Theyre not all in east Naples and Immokalee. Acting as liaison between homeless families and the school board, Ms. Rodriguez-Schweisthal identifies homeless students and determines what they need. Sometimes she finds them through answers on enrollment forms: Are they living in transition? Have they been evicted? Are they living doubled up, meaning sharing housing with other families? Other times she finds them through a teacher who notices poor attendance or a child forever asking, Is it time for lunch? and brings that child to her attention. Ms. Rodriguez-Schweisthal can help these children with transportation, free lunch, tutoring sessions, health physicals, counseling, school supplies, uniforms but only as much as her funding will allow. Her position rests on a competitive grant, $90,000 to cover her salary and the services she provides. She stops by St. Matthews House to drop off soap and towels and recaps what a school day might look like for a homeless child (and what signs she and educators in schools watch for): They might be tired, she says. They might not be picky eaters. They worry where mom or dad might be, worry they might have to move again, be out of school a couple of days, when they know school is where they need to be. Mr. Ellison says the majority of the children in his shelter are honors students. They know thats the way to succeed, Ms. Rodriguez-Schweisthal says of school. They know if they dont have that, their chances are slim to none, and they try very hard to finish against the odds.Faking normalMs. Rodriguez-Schweisthal expands on the lengths children will go to in order to keep their homelessness hidden. She tells of a boy who stops himself from playing too hard at recess, because he only has one uniform and if he runs around too much and gets sweaty, hell stink the next day. He folds up his uniform and puts it under his pillow before he goes to sleep at the shelter each night, so when he wakes up it looks as if it had been pressed. If it looks clean, maybe nobody will know. Ms. Rodriguez-Schweisthal and Mr. Ellison will not give names, but they speak for these children, because the children are often too scared or embarrassed to speak for themselves. (Florida Weekly will not identify children in this article for the same reason, to keep them from harm or hurtful ridicule). The two advocates say the younger ones will tell you, We took our bath at McDonalds last night, but the older ones, those of middle school and high school age, cant dare to be different, because the opinion of their peers means everything; their friends are important and their parents are stupid. If their homelessness is somehow revealed, Ms. Rodriguez-Schweisthal says, They go from one level of stress to a completely new level of rejection and anxiety. There may be half a dozen kids next to them struggling with the same thing, but they will not come to their defense because if someone finds out, then theyll be alone, then theyll have nobody. But one guileless shelter resident in Port Charlotte, a boy with soft curls and long lashes, says what he knows. He sits in the grass outside his familys room at the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition Safe House Emergency Shelter. His mother stands beside him, slippers on her feet, baby on her hip. The boy says he goes to school to learn, says he wants to be a cop, cause they arrest bad guys. He talks to his friends about police cars and animals. When he talks about school, he talks about pizza and chicken nuggets. And guess what other special stuff they serve, he wants the interviewer to know. Roast beef. Hes the oldest of four and says before the shelter, he lived in hotels. That made him feel nervous he says, because sometimes, we had to sleep on the bottom floor. He remembers the day his family moved into the shelter: It was like Boom. Whoa, his eyes widen. There was lots of stuff, toys, blankets and sheets. When he has to do his homework, he says he walks outside and sits on the sidewalk, because his family his father, his mother, his two brothers and his sister all live in one room and share one bath, and it can be hard to concentrate. I come out here for alone time, the 8-year-old explains. His mother does not know if he knows hes homeless. He knows we dont have our own house. He knows he doesnt have his own room, she says. Ask him how many schools hes been to and he says, A lot. Ask his 27-yearold mother and she says, This is like his fourth school this year. The family is homeless, she says, because, We just ran out of money. Her husband goes out looking for a job every day, while she watches the kids. The money we were supposed to get a house with, we used up for hotels. Playing with a stick and the key to his familys room at the shelter, the little boy says what home means to him: It means to me like, somewhere I can lay my head back, get some food to eat and watch some TV. He says he misses his Grandpa. When his friends ask him where he lives, I say the shelter, he says. But they dont know what kind of shelter I mean. And I dont even know what kind of shelter this is. I say the family unit shelter, right? Ask him if anybodys ever told him he has long eyelashes. A couple people, he says, flashing a couple of dimples.Homework without a homeMichael Overway, an administrator for the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, says his shelter keeps seeing more and more families, And it shows no sign of slowing down. Day rooms in the dorms have been converted to house families. The clinic, too, housed a family of 10 in early February. The second Friday in February, there are six families, 12 children, staying in the 52-bed shelter. One income goes away and guess what? They end up here, Mr. Overway says. People use their last dollar and 50 cents in fuel to get here. He adds his families are so grateful to have somewhere to be, they will help in any way they feel could benefit the coalition, including talking to the press, putting their embarrassment aside for the interest. Charlotte Countys 2011 point-in-time count, a 12-hour snapshot of the homeless required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, counted 1,017 homeless, of which families made up 63 percent. But Butch Edlir, supervisor at the Charlotte Safe House, remembers a highschool boy, a senior who didnt want to be jerked around again by his familys circumstances. He didnt want to leave the school he was in, he didnt want to leave his friends, Mr. Edlir says. So the young man asked if he could stay at the shelter, go to his prom and graduate. He did. Classified as unaccompanied youths, homeless students of such age tend to couch surf from friend to friend, somehow studying and surviving along the way. We ask them to keep education as their priority, and yet we know their priority is survival, says Chantal Phillips, director of intervention and dropout prevention for Charlotte County public schools. Their priority is, Where am I going to sleep tonight? What can I eat? Where can I find a bed? Charlotte County identified 495 homeless students last year; thus far this year, that number is 408. Last year, 134 of those students were unaccompanied youths; this year, 95 have been found to be out on their own. Thats nothing. Theres more, says Dr. Lucy Garner, the Charlotte liaison for homeless education. She says every day HOMELESSFrom page 1ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis 8-year-old boy has been to four schools so far this academic year.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 NEWS A9 they identify at least one more homeless student; 45 more students were identified as homeless in January. She rolls off these numbers sitting next to Mrs. Phillips, in a room where a Social workers build frameworks for success tapestry hangs on the wall. The women agree their role is to remove barriers in order to ensure that the education of a homeless child is the same as the education of anyone else. But some barriers are harder than others to move the lack of shelters, not enough public housing, the lack of public transportation. Imagine if you were expected to perform the same way as your neighbor, but you dont have a computer, you dont have the Internet, no transportation, no way to get to the library, no desk, no quiet room to get your work done Some children do their homework to the interior light of a parked car, Mrs. Phillips says. The barriers are multiple. But Dr. Garner and Mrs. Phillips can do things like give their students bicycles or towels or pillows. You know that child will hold that pillow, says Dr. Garner. Something they cannot do, she stresses, is be blind to the situation. Rather than looking at people and going, Oh, theyre homeless, thats their problem, we have to understand how this happens and how it could happen to anyone of us overnight. In a positive light, Mrs. Phillips points out these children are going to school, learning how to not let the unfortunate overwhelm the more promising sides of life. The students of Orange River Elementary School in east Fort Myers know this outlook well. Thats me, too Principal Holly Bell says she has 25 homeless students her count does not include students living with multiple families in one house, though the federal definition of homeless students does include those sharing housing with others due to loss of housing, economic hardships or similar situations. If Principal Bells count included this, I would have many, many more, she says, considering her migrant worker families. Principal Bell says she has found moms looking for food in school garbage cans at night. When she sends food home on Fridays for the weekend, she has to think in terms of powdered milk and groceries that do not require refrigeration, as many of her students live without electricity, walls or not. She says 94 percent are on free-or-reduced lunch programs. I guess the one good thing, if you can look at it as good, says Principal Bell, putting it in perspective, is that, So many have so little, they all feel the same. My kids dont have cool sneakers. Give one of my kids a jacket and theyll wear it. Theyre not too proud to wear something thats not brand new. The Orange River classroom to exemplify this the most may be Maria Cardenas class. Her third-graders are reading A Room of My Own, a story about a little girl who shares a bed with six or seven of her brothers and sisters. Growing up in a migrant family, Mrs. Cardenas tells her class, That was me. This opens up conversation, where her students feel safe to say, Thats me, too. In the story, the little girl clears out a storage room, a little shed, and makes it her own room. In real life, Mrs. Cardenas says, the one thing she carried with her as she moved around as a child was a Styrofoam cup of marigold seeds, a gift from one of her teachers. She says she attended at least three different schools each year and always felt ignored as a student; she just sat in the back of the class, going from grade to grade. I saw and heard how people perceived children like the children in my classroom, and I said, Wait, wait, wait, she says. I wasnt happy with what I saw and what people thought about people like me. So she became a teacher, one who promises her students, Im not going to ignore you. She tells them, Youre smarter than you think you are, and says they have to work twice as hard, just to catch up. Many of her students have to work in the fields after school, picking or planting vegetables. Many of them do not have a bed, and many of them are cold over the weekend. Come Friday, come the end of any school day, they dont want to leave school. They want extra homework, they want to learn more and more and more. They want better for themselves, Mrs. Cardenas says. They didnt choose their situation. Ask her students what school means to them and a little girl says, Schools perfect. One boy says he goes to school, to learn to help. Principal Bell sees school as her students best hope. She sees parents who, also, want better for their children. These mommies want their kids to be everything, to have everything; its not give me, give me, she says. Besides the children living five or six or seven families to a house, where maybe only one person in the whole house still has a job, Orange River Elementary has students living out of tents and living out of cars, even a woman on Principal Bells own staff. This womans husband lost his job and they lost their house; now the couple and their two children are living out of their old Chevy Tahoe, going to a gas station to wash up before school. Knowing that just makes me know how many other families are bathing in gas stations, too, Principal Bell says. The problems much greater than anyone imagines. Her sentiment seems pervasive. Roger Mercado, allocations and planning director for United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades, and Tracey Galloway, CEO of Community Cooperative Ministries Inc., a nonprofit fighting hunger, exchange stories: One of a wife abandoned by her husband, she loses her job and she and her two school-aged daughters must move in with her brother to live. Another of a husband who loses his job, his wife has been deported, he must move in with his brother and raise his two school-aged boys. Then theres the family living in a gated community; they still drive a Lexus, but their home is bare inside. Theyve sold everything and are sleeping on the floor. But the most recent story to still their hearts a little girl, whose parents lost their jobs and left her with her grandfather while they went away to look for work. The child attends an elementary school on the east side of Lee County, and her grandfather lives on a fixed income. One morning he dropped her off in the car line with her suitcase packed, says Mrs. Galloway. He said to the teachers in the car line, Please help her find a good home, I cant take care of her anymore. For Mr. Mercado, these stories sum up the semantics: Whether youre talking the new homeless or those people, it can happen to anyone. Its not those people, he says, Its anyone. The reason the problem has become so pronounced: Its jobs, Mrs. Galloway says. Thats why migrant families are in the situation theyre in, thats why middle-class families are falling into poverty. The answer to the problem: Its jobs, Mr. Mercado says. Jobs put money in your bank account. Last year the Lee County School District identified 1,300 homeless students. So far this year theyve identified 1,100. All the stories you read in different publications, all the stories you hear on TV, theyre all true, says Cathy Tufaro, project ACCESS social worker. Its not just parents who have lost their jobs, but parents who have had their wages cut, having to sell their blood or something to supplement their minimum wage, Ms. Tufaro says. The contradiction she sees, This is kind of out there, she says, But it just seems with all these empty houses sitting around vacant, its too bad there are children with nowhere to live. Thats the blight of it all. ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLYA boy and his father living in a Port Charlotte shelter sit at the playground together.

CALL TODAY!Eye-popping distinctionSri Lanka has, as an unwritten symbol of pride and culture, the worlds highest per-capita rate for eye-donation, according to a January Associated Press dispatch from Colombo. Underpinning this national purpose is the countrys Buddhist tradition that celebrates afterlives. Hes dead, said a relative of an eye recipient about the donor, but hes still alive. His eye can still see the world. Doctors even report instances in which Sri Lankans consider giving up an eyeball while still alive, as a measure of virtue. A new state-of-the-art clinic, funded by Singaporean donors, is expected to nearly double Sri Lankas eyeball exports. The way the world works Melissa Torres was a passenger in an April 2011 auto accident in Texas City, Texas, in which the five people involved were reported uninjured by police, and indeed, Ms. Torres was released from the Mainland Medical Center emergency room after a routine evaluation (for which she was billed $4,850). In fact, records from April 2011 until September showed her balance as $4,850. However, in December, Mainland learned that Ms. Torres had made an insurance claim against the driver and settled it for $30,000. The hospital quickly updated her balance to $20,211 and filed a claim against the settlement. Hospitals, of course, are obligated to render emergency care to anyone who needs it, even to undocumented immigrants and irrespective of ability to pay. However, various state laws, such as New Yorks, also prohibit hospitals from releasing a patient who has no safe place to be discharged to. A January New York Times report noted that New York City hospitals currently house about 300 of those continuing care patients, with many in the five-year-long range and one patient now in his 13th year. (In some states, even, the laws wording permits pop drops, in which adult children leave ailing parents at a hospital when the children decide they need a break.) The Force is not with youIn November, Rickie La Touche, 30, was convicted in Englands Preston Crown Court of killing his wife in a rage over her having allegedly destroyed the Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker memorabilia that he had collected since childhood. And in January, a judge in Portland, Ore., ordered a 45-day jail sentence, plus mental evaluation, for David Canterbury, 33, after he attacked Toys R Us customers with a lightsaber in each hand. And in February in Brooklyn, N.Y., Flynn Michael expanded his search for his stolen $400 custom-made lightsaber. I guess thats the joke, said Michael, self-pityingly. Some Jedi I turned out to be. Names in the news In a Christmas Eve alcohol-related auto accident in Buffalo, N.Y., the injured victims included Chad Beers, and the man charged was Richard Booze Jr. In Burnett County, Wis., in October, Scott Martini, 51, was arrested for suspicion of DUI, which would be his fourth offense. In Madison, Wis., in January, police filed weapon and drug charges against the 30-year-old man who had legally changed his name to Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop. And charged with vandalism of a Rhode Island state troopers barracks in November was the 27-year-old Mr. Wanker Rene. In 2011, for the first time in 10 years, Jose was not the most popular baby name in Texas (it was Jacob), but more interesting were the outlier names from the birth register examined by the Houston Press in December. Among last years Houston babies were boys with the first names Aaden, Zyun, Goodness, Godswill, Clever, Handsome, Sir Genius and Dallas Cowboys. Girls names included Gorgeousgzaiya, AMiracle, DaeGorgeous and Praisegod. The newspaper had previously combed the register of convicts in Harris County (Houston) and found Willie Nelson de Ochoa, Shitia Alford, Petrono Tum Pu, Charmin Crew and Anal Exceus.Least-competent criminals Mostafa Hendi was charged with attempted robbery of the We Buy Gold store in Hendersonville, N.C., in December, but clerk Derek Mothershead stopped him. As Mr. Hendi reached for the money, Mr. Mothershead punched him in the face, momentarily knocking him out cold. He held Mr. Hendi down with one hand and called 911 with the other, and as the two waited for police, Mr. Mothershead handed Mr. Hendi cleanser and paper towels and ordered him to clean up his blood off of the floor. Car salesman Frank Ready was showing his inventory to Pedro Prieto and Yordan Llauger at his lot in Austin, Texas, in December, and they had settled on a Nissan Maxima for around $9,000. They asked if I took Visa, Ready told KVUE-TV. I said, Yeah. The next day, Prieto and Llauger returned with 90 $100 Visa gift cards. Naturally, Ready called police, who later found at least 28 counterfeit credit cards on the pair and charged them and a third person with fraud and identity theft.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 Memories of World War IIPhotographs on exhibit at Naples Museum of ArtMore than 100 rare and iconic photographs from Associated Press photographers, a photographic journey through World War II, are on exhibit at the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art through Saturday, April 7. For the duration of the exhibition, all active and retired members of the Armed Forces and Reserve enjoy free museum admission by showing their service ID. We are pleased to share this emotionally engaging exhibit with those who have honorably served our country, says Philharmonic Center CEO Kathleen van Bergen. Memories of World War II features photographs from all theaters of the Second World War and the home front, ranging from familiar scenes of Japans attack on Pearl Harbor to Joe Rosenthals classic Iwo Jima flag-raising in 1945 to dozens of pictures not seen in decades. Many photos credit AP staff photographers by name; others came from anonymous Army or Navy photographers. Some of the photographers were killed in combat; others went on to postwar prominence. All of the pictures were transmitted at some time on AP wires, but some probably have not been touched since the war, said Charles Zoeller, curator of the exhibition and chief of APs photo library. The Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The museum is at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts, 5833 Pelican Bay Blvd. For more information, call 597-1900 or visit www.ThePhil.org.

Scott will explore prison privatization without law change BY DAVID ROYSEThe News Service of FloridaGov. Rick Scott said last week that he will explore opportunities to privatize state prisons on his own following the Senates defeat of a bill that would have required some prisons be bid out to private companies. Gov. Scott acknowledged that initially he didnt consider privatizing prisons a priority, but was disappointed the Senate voted down a bill that would have done that, and said hell explore what many backers of the Senate plan said was a possibility that the governor could order privatization unilaterally. It wasnt something that was one of my legislative session priorities this year, but heres what I think about it, Gov. Scott said. I got elected to hold government accountable, to not waste taxpayers money. So here was an opportunity that the Senate had to give us the opportunity to save a significant amount of money Im disappointed the Senate didnt do that. Im going to look at what I have the opportunity to do. Im going to make sure that we dont waste money. Gov. Scott pointed out that there are fewer inmates than anticipated and that it didnt make sense to spend state dollars on half-full prisons. Why wouldnt we save that money and put the money into education, into textbooks, and to make sure we have the right health care safety net instead of spending the money where we dont need to? Gov. Scott said. The Senate earlier this week voted 21-19 against a bill that would have required privatization of most of the prison facilities in an 18-county area from roughly Tampa Bay south. The bill would have required prison operators to guarantee savings of $16.5 million a year immediately in order to get the bid, though many opponents said they didnt believe the savings would materialize.

Gov. Scotts jump into the controversy after months of refusing to answer directly what his position was on the idea drew immediate criticism from the opponents of privatization, including the union that currently represents most state corrections officers. The Senate reflected the will of the citizens of Florida when it voted to kill prison privatization, said Ken Wood, acting president of Teamsters Local 2011, which represents about 20,000 correctional officers in the state. Floridians do not want the rules changed so private companies can get secret contracts with no cost-benefit analysis and no public review. The House never got a chance to vote on the issue. House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, said that he would defer to the governor and if Gov. Scott pursued it, he would likely support him. Thats totally his call, Rep. Cannon said. Ive said that my personal view is that privatization is one component of reconfiguring our criminal justice system asset. Its not a panacea But the bill died in the Senate, so I think as a legislative matter its dead. I would defer entirely to him if he chooses to pursue it, I would be inclined to respect his judgment.

With a focus on education, information and recognition for those entrepreneurs, the new Partnerships programs include: FastTrac GrowthVenture A 10-week business development program for CEOs of companies with sales under $1 million and four to 10 employees Roundtable Relationship-development programs to connect entrepreneurs of companies with high growth potential Community Outreach Campaign A way to identify CEOs who could benefit from economic development programs Chairmans Luncheon Series Quarterly programs for business leaders to exchange opinions on topics impacting the Partnership and the community Business of the Month Presentation of an award to an organization that has enhanced the community Excellence in Industry Part of an initiative by the state of Florida to recognize top companies The Partnership has already raised $119,000 of the $120,000 it needs to start its programs. Donors include Wells Fargo, Physicians Regional Healthcare System, TECO Energy, CenturyLink, IBERIABANK and BB&T. The chamber also touted Partnership alliances that have come together for the initiative, including the Gulf Coast Venture Forum, CBIA, Edison State College, Hodges University, NABOR, the Small Business Development Council at Florida Gulf Coast University, SCORE Naples, Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board, the Economic Recovery Task Force and Collier County Public Schools. Ed Morton, managing director at Wasmer Schroeder, who serves as cochair of the Partnership with Mr. Wynn, thanked the crowd for attending the launch announcement but also encouraged everyone there to make a commitment to participate in Partnership programs. The chamber is nothing more than a symbol of unified business, education and the dream of a better future, and well never achieve change unless were all committed, Mr. Morton said, adding, Its important to have economic development, because weve depended on construction and tourism for too long. Tim Cartwright, managing director at Fifth Avenue Advisors and former president-elect of the EDC board, told the group that he was encouraged not only by the chambers Partnership announcement but by steps that Collier County has taken to create an economic development office. The county government needs to be involved because they write the checks if were going to have any type of incentive program or expand it, Mr. Cartwright said after the formal announcement. Mr. Reagan echoed that sentiment and said County Manager Leo Ochs, is doing an outstanding job and needs to be supported in all the ways we can. After the meeting, Mr. Reagan told Florida Weekly that for 30 years, Collier Countys economy was driven by the importation of wealth to our community, and everything has been services to those people in terms of residential demand and infrastructure.

It has been tolerated but not cherished. He pointed to the countys elongated permitting process and what he called the highest impact fees in the United States as barriers to doing business in Collier County. Im not even sure there is a great interest in economic development by the community, he said, noting that, Most people who have worked here have done well because the community has grown. Yes, Structural change is taking place all over the world and is more profound that we think. Business is never going to be the same, and our community has to adapt. Mr. Reagan said he sees economic development opportunities specifically within the fields of medical tourism, information technology and biotech. We are hopeful that in the days ahead, we will educate and inform people about getting involved in diversifying our local economy. At the same time, We will enhance everything we have and be proud of it, he said, referring to the areas tourist and cultural attractions.Whats nextIn late April, the Partnership for Colliers Future Economy expects to announce findings from a comparative county project. Hodges University is studying 11 counties in Florida that have good government and business relationships that help with economic prosperity. Primary data collection is completed, and interviews are now taking place with business and government leaders. The goal is to identify models that Collier might want to implement. BOB RAYMOND / FLORIDA WEEKLYEd Morton addresses the gathering at the Naples Hilton. John Toscano founded AAMI Inc. (formerly Affordable Alarm & Monitoring Inc.) 18 years ago, when he was a 19-year-old college student. Today, his Naples office employs 18 people and did $2.7 million sales in 2011, and he has a second office in Leesburg with six employees. Many people here probably havent even heard AAMI or Mr. Toscano, but with help from the Partnership for Colliers Future Economy, he could develop a stronger presence in the community. I spent many of the early years more worried about growing the business than being involved with different businesses, he shares. Now, I see the value of being involved in the community which, without worrying about it, helps you grow your business. Mr. Toscano says getting involved to help expand existing businesses is worthwhile. If other businesses dont grow, I dont have the new hires that need homes that in turn need my alarm systems. A graduate of Lely High School who earned a bachelor of science in business administration from the University of Florida, he also supports the Partnerships focus on education. He currently provides tuition assistance to three of his employees pursuing business degrees at Hodges University. They asked if they could go further in the company if they did this, and I say yes. It gives them a new way of thinking, which will help grow my company. Mr. Toscano hopes his involvement in the Partnership will help him learn from people with more experience and will also give him the opportunity to mentor younger people starting in business.

The Marco eagles have landedSanctuary park provides perfect setting for viewing BY LINDA TURNERSpecial to Florida WeeklyOnce again, Paleo and Calusa (dubbed last May by Tommy Barfield fifth grade students) have two new eaglets in their nest. The first egg hatched on Jan. 18 and the second on Jan. 21. The adult male is seen making frequent flights to the nest tree with fish dangling from his talons to feed his family. Growing very rapidly, the eaglets are already beginning to lose their downy gray feathers which soon will be replaced with black feathers. The Marco Eagle Sanctuary is sporting a new look with the recent installation of a rope barrier, sign and benches. The natural park setting offers visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy the eagle family. Sitting on park benches, visitors can watch the eagles in their own serene natural environment. Setting up with telescopes on the sidewalk or viewing through binoculars, visitors can have a close encounter with the eaglets fuzzy little heads as they play dueling beaks in the nest under the adult females close supervision. Eaglets are almost adult size by age 10 weeks. Around 12 weeks, the eaglets can be observed standing on the edge of their nest flapping their wings. Once the eaglets fledge, they will hang around the nest and use it as a feeding platform for two or three weeks. The adult eagles coax the fledglings away from the nest by ceasing to feed them. They teach the fledglings to hunt for rodents on the sanctuary property, and then take them further from the nest to catch fish. The wider their hunting circle becomes, the less time they will spend at the nest before ultimately flying away to unknown destinations. The adult eagles return to the sanctuary, but do not return to the nest tree until the next nesting season. Earlier this month, sanctuary observers were surprised and delighted to witness the return of two juvenile eagles believed to be former sanctuary fledglings. The adult eagles, however, were not at all delighted by their return. As the juveniles attempted to move into the nest tree, there was considerable noise and ruffled feathers as the adults chased the juveniles away from the nest and the eaglets.About the sanctuaryThe Marco Eagle Sanctuary is at 665 Tigertail Court on Marco Island. The bald eagle, our national symbol, is a state and federally protected species requiring a 330-foot protective barrier radius around the nest tree. The Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation will continue to protect the bald eagles and preserve their habitat as an eco-park by hosting the second annual Nest Fest in April. For more information, visit www. marcoeaglesanctuaryfoundation.org.

Coleman, D.O.Dr. Coleman is trained in: Complete Eye Care Surgery of the Eye & EyelidsConservancy celebrates its Good Fortune II SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Conservancy of Southwest Florida has launched the Good Fortune II, a new 45-passenger pontoon boat that takes passengers on eco-cruises through Rookery Bay. Three narrated cruises are offered daily and the boat is available for private charters. A ceremonial launch and christening took place Feb. 16 at the Good Fortune dock off of Shell Island Road. The boat, which replaced the original Good Fortune cruise boat, was made possible through a gift from the W. Brooks Fortune Foundation and proceeds from the Float the Boat live auction portion at last years Magic Under the Mangroves gala fundraiser. A former Eli Lilly chemist who decoded messages revealing Japans plans to attack Pearl Harbor, the late W. Brooks Fortune was a part-time resident of Bonita Springs who first became involved with the Conservancy of Southwest Florida in 1994. After members of the Fortune family took a boat tour of Rookery Bay in 2000, the foundation donated $60,000 so the Conservancy could purchase a new boat for its tours. In recognition of the gift, the Conservancy named the boat the Good Fortune, honoring the Fortune familys love and commitment to bringing guests to the beauty of Rookery Bay. Len Zaiser IV, a grandson of the late Mr. Fortune, spoke at the christening ceremony and described how his grandfather was involved in pioneering the Salk poliomyelitis vaccine that helped curtail the polio epidemic of the 1950s, as well as in the development of Darvocet pain medication. However, despite all of his accomplishments, he was a humble man and very honored to provide the opportunity for the public to experience the beauty of this fragile environment and to learn how to help protect it for generations to come, he said. Over the years, the W. Brooks Fortune Foundation has given more than $170,000 to support environmental education as well as the Good Fortune program at the Conservancy. Most recently, the Conservancy received a three-year, $90,000 grant from the foundation to help fund the Good Fortune II. Len Zaiser IV shares the legacy of his grandfather, the late W. Brooks Fortune, a former Eli Lilly chemist and Army code specialist who was a Conservancy supporter and namesake of the Good Fortune II. Be In the Know.

Jim Pittman, Good Fortune II Capt. Meade Sommers, Conservancy volunteer and Magic Under the Mangroves committee member Judy Hushon, Good Fortune II volunteer coordinator Carol Haberkern and Conservancy Vice President of Development and Marketing Rob Moher toast the christening of the Good Fortune II. During the christening and launch celebration, Conservancy of Southwest Florida President and CEO Andrew McElwaine thanked Mr. Zaiser, the W. Brooks Fortune Foundation and Magic Under the Mangroves committee member Judy Hushon for their continued support of the Good Fortune program. Thanks to the generosity of the Fortune family, as well as our Magic Under the Mangroves patrons, we are able to continue to offer a unique opportunity for Conservancy members, local residents and visitors to explore Rookery Bay, Mr. McElwaine said. The Good Fortune II offers residents and visitors a very intimate and personal way to learn about Southwest Floridas environment, Mrs. Hushon said. Taking a ride through the mangroves, you might spot a dolphin, manatee or a bobcat. Its a great adventure, and you really gain an entirely new appreciation for our water, land and wildlife. Also as part of the celebration, one of Good Fortune IIs Coast Guard-certified captains, Meade Sommers, read an Ode to the Good Fortune to commemorate the event: The Good Fortune II is a mighty fine boat, in Rookery Bay, its the very best afloat; the passengers love the wide, friendly layout, with plenty of room to move about; the Conservancy loves the new passenger count, which can mean a nice additional dollar amount; the naturalists have more people to tell, of the wonders that hold us all in their spell; the captains love the new controls and power, we can run it with pleasure, hour after hour; the Coast Guard likes that there is less rock, and that in an emergency, we can quickly get back to the dock; so to all who are responsible for this great feat, the Good Fortune II captains and crew think youre really quite neat. Following the poem, Capt. Jim Pittman poured sparkling cider on the bow of the boat while Capt. Sommers rang a ceremonial bell, signally the close of the ceremony and the vessels official launch. Capts. Meade Sommers and Jim Pittman at the helm for the inaugural launch of the Good Fortune II.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA42 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 Clinical trials impact our medical futureIn 2010, Physicians Regional Healthcare System chose to expand our focus on research and clinical trials and asked Rachel Barry to join our staff as director of research. What she and her team have managed to accomplish over the last 12 months has astonished me. With several studies already completed, current enrollment of nine studies and still three more in the pipeline, our research team has exceeded my expectations many times over. A clinical study is medical research that determines the safety and effectiveness of a drug or treatment while uncovering any potential side effects. Basically, any medication you and I are currently taking has gone through this essential process. In days past, the understandable connection between research and education meant that the majority of clinical trials were conducted at university-sponsored medical facilities. However, as our mission is to remain on the cutting edge of medicine, housing a state-of-the-art research facility for such studies was a very easy decision to make. Not only does Collier County now benefit from hosting the largest clinical research site of its kind in Southwest Florida, but our emphasis on research and clinical studies provides our doctors and patients access to the most recent advances in both medicine and medical procedures. Physicians Regional Healthcare System was recently one of 1,053 sites in 40 countries to participate in a study of atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat that can cause blood clots that can often lead to strokes. The study evaluated a new medication that requires no dose changes, no finger sticks and no diet restrictions. The results of more than 18,000 patients enrolled showed that the study drug was superior to Coumadin, the only medication currently available, in the prevention of stroke, clotting and bleeding. We are now in the planning stages for clinical studies involving psoriasis, hip fracture, high blood pressure and heart attacks. Clinical research gives clinical trial volunteers an opportunity to receive premarket treatments that could improve their condition and also help restore their health. All of the testing (labs, EKGs, etc.), medication and physician assessments are provided to volunteers at no cost. Patients are also compensated for their time. We often share lab test results with primary care physicians to save the patient time and money so they can quickly receive treatment for any abnormalities found. If you are interested in learning more or are interested in participating in our clinical trials, call our research department at 304-4791. As the CEO of Physicians Regional Healthcare System, I am proud of our decision to become an integral part of the future of medicine through our participation in clinical studies. However, more than that, I extend my sincere appreciation to the local patient volunteers who give of themselves and their time, to ensure a healthier future for all. Todd Lupton is the CEO of Physicians Regional Healthcare System.Heart health: An ounce of prevention sure beats leaving well enough alone BY MARY LOU SMARTSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe philosopher who coined the phrase If it aint broke, dont fix it, might have been talking about government regulatory commissions known for expensive tinkering, but certainly not heart health, according to Dr. Edwin Dean, medical director of the Edwin J. Dean MD Medical Wellness Center in Naples. Eighty percent of us will have a major procedure or illness due to cardiovascular disease, which starts early in life and progresses silently, until the damage is done, Dr. Dean says. The good news is that while cardiovascular disease is the primary condition likely to affect your health, advanced tests to monitor heart health can lead to longer lives. The American Heart Association places a strong emphasis on prevention, says Ryan Goldberg, AHA executive director for Southwest Florida. We encourage everyone to take steps to protect their heart health. Nutrition, exercise and stress management are a few of those steps, but so too are regular visits to your health-care professional to be sure you Know Your Numbers and understand your hidden medical risks. As frequently noted in AHA published studies, cardiovascular disease is by far the leading driver of mortality and medical costs in the United States. Symptomatic issues are wide ranging and include pain, diabetes, obesity, heart attack and stroke. Issues commonly attributed to aging loss of energy, memory loss and deteriorating sexual function are also signs of cardiovascular disease. Insurance companies are not as likely to pick up the tab for preventative care, knowing full well that when cardiovascular disease finally rears its ugly head (which is statistically more likely after age 65), Medicare will pay for bypass and other sky-high medical costs. While the preventative-care-costavoidance strategy is a fantastic one for the financial well being of health insurance companies, however, it shaves years off of lives. And dont count on the government coming to the rescue and paying for the expensive late-stage fixes forever, either. With baby boomers reaching their 60s and 70s, the U.S. government will be rationing out payment for heart procedures soon enough. These days, myth busting is the front line of the wellness industry. Heart health tests for cholesterol and blood pressure, the EKG and even conventional stress testing might yield normal results, which lead to complacency. Dr. Dean says the vast majority of walking wounded are guided by the common misconception that artery disease is something that suddenly hits us in our later years. You can see signs of it in your 30s, 40s and 50s, he says. For those interested in good health throughout life, heart testing in earlier years provides a lifesaving opportunity to be proactive. ABC News Nightline anchor Bill Weir was recently on assignment in Beverly Hills, documenting innovative technology used for early detection of preventable disease. Visiting a physician known for treating celebrities such as Steve Jobs, Lance Armstrong and Ted Kennedy, he agreed to a series of tests. On camera, he was shocked to learn that one of the tests, the CT heart scan, showed calcification in a primary artery.Mr. Weir, 44, exercises daily, has not been sick in several years and considers himself to be in good health. The physician, Dr. David Angus, told him that without lifestyle adjustments, hed be dead in five years. Hes now exercising more, eating salmon instead of sausage-and-cheese pizza for lunch and taking a cholesterollowering statin and a baby aspirin daily. Standard cholesterol testing alone is a poor way to find hidden plaque, Dr. Dean says, adding, cholesterol is only one of the risk factors for vascular disease, and 50 percent of heart attacks occur in people who have cholesterol levels that would be considered good or normal. Those getting a perfectly normal EKG can also be mistakenly led to believe that everything is okay, he says. At his wellness center, a complete heart health assessment includes a combination of heart CT coronary calcium score, an lipomed cholesterol profile, an EKG to determine heart rhythm, a cardio CRP to uncover inflammation in the body as well as tests to evaluate liver and kidney health, glucose levels, blood pressure, weight, body mass index and even vitamin D levels. Using these results to develop targeted strategies, Dr. Dean can help patients avoid serious health problems before they occur.His continuing caution: The symptoms of cardiovascular disease are often the last; 50 percent of heart attacks end in sudden death. In my opinion, the dont look, dont watch approach almost guarantees declining health, shorter lives, and a future of expensive medical services. HEALTHY LIVING toddLUPTONwww.physiciansregional.com COURTESY PHOTOSMonitoring heart health can help avoid expensive emergency procedures resulting from life-threatening conditions and can lead to longer and healthier lives.

One excellent example of folks helping others is our Employee Advisory Council, the governance body for Partners in Caring and for our employee Super Stars, events, survey and health and wellness teams. An employeedirected welfare fund, Partners in Caring provided nearly $18,000 to 21 employees in need last year and contributed another $10,000 to fund things within the system to help employee welfare things such a back-to-school supplies and holiday presents for families in need, TVs for employee break rooms, several new Christmas trees, pastoral educational books and patient safety awareness programs. We also nearly doubled the individual employee grants for unexpected needs from $650 to $1,100. This fund covers such expenses as airplane fare when there is a death in the family, assistance with rent or a mortgage in hard times, help after a house fire or aid with other unforeseen stresses. Nine new associates have recently joined this internal philanthropic team, bringing the total committee membership to 16. As of December 2011, our emergency assistance fund has grown to more than $105,000, and our projects fund totaled just under $17,000. I am pleased to report that we received $16,374 from employees, which was matched dollar for dollar by the NCH Healthcare System. The employee events team takes charge of fun getting our extended NCH family together to socialize throughout the year. The annual Easter egg hunt involves the younger generation as well as some grandparents (like myself). Lunch with Santa is a happy tradition around the holidays, as is parents night out, which gives moms and dads a child-free Friday night to help Santa select the right presents. We also conduct an annual toy drive that helps ensure that no child is without presents for the holidays. Non-perishable food is also collected and distributed. Another fun employee event takes place at Sun n Fun Lagoon every summer. NCH takes over the whole place for an evening BBQ two Saturday nights in a row (so our weekend colleagues can take advantage of their off week). Everyone plays in the water until exhausted and is guaranteed a restful nights sleep. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System.

BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickIf you want a friendly reptilian pet whos easy to care for, your choice is an easy one: You want a bearded dragon. Beardeds are not only tame when handled, but many also seem to enjoy the contact. Even better, theyre suitable for almost any pet lover or family situation and a great pet for a responsible child. Bearded dragons enjoy exploring, whether crawling on their owners or around the house. They stick out their tongues to touch new surfaces to determine the temperature and makeup of the area a behavior that adds to their appeal. Beardeds live to be about 10 years old and will mature at 18 to 24 inches in length, including the tail. Hatchling beardeds are only about 3 inches in length and look more like a gecko than a giant lizard species. Common colorings of the bearded are yellow and tan, though they can be found in more vibrant yellow, orange and albino. The bearded dragon name comes from the display the pet puts on when trying to act tough. The puffed-beard display is used only defensively to scare away potential threats. Along with puffing out, beardeds also flatten out their bellies to look wider, as well as leave their rather large mouths gaping open to intimidate the potential threat. Beardeds are quite happy to live alone as in the wild, except when in search of mates. If you want more than one, however, theres no downside, since they seem to enjoy the companionship of another of their kind. Female beardeds can usually be housed with another female or male, but males should not be housed together, due to territorial aggression. Beardeds need human help to maintain their temperature in captivity, using heat lamps or warming pads. They do well in tanks where some areas are cooler and some are warmer a range of 85 to 105 degrees by day, dipping into the 70s at night. Youll also need special lighting, since these reptiles need UVB rays to properly absorb dietary calcium. A full-spectrum light should be provided 12 to 14 hours a day most of the year, and 10 to 12 hours in the winter. Omnivores by nature, beardeds enjoy both plants and meat in their diet. Juveniles enjoy a carnivorous diet, while adults become primarily herbivores, enjoying a diet of dark, leafy vegetables and some fruit. All food given to the bearded should be shredded into easy-to-swallow, bite-size pieces. Insects should be given to adult beardeds two to three times per week (mainly crickets), but also mealworms, wax moth larvae and pinkie mice in limited amounts. Beardeds hit sexual maturity between 1 and 2 years of age, when females will start laying eggs, regardless of whether theyve been mated. Veterinary care is minimal for pets who are being properly cared for. After purchase, your bearded should to be examined for health and parasites, with treatment for the latter if necessary. After that, annual examinations are recommended, to help your veterinarian understand whats normal for your pet, so treatment can be more targeted if theres a problem.

Question: I get up to urinate two to three times every night. I usually go right back to sleep, but sometimes I am tired the next day. Is this normal?Answer: This condition is called nocturia and can be caused by a number of dierent issues. It is very common and considered normal for a person to get up once per night to urinate by age 70. This is because as the body ages it becomes slightly less ecient at eliminating uid during the day. However, if you are needing to urinate two or more times per night, it could be due to problems such as an enlarged prostate or other prostate problem in men. In women this could be due to a fallen bladder or urethral problem. It is essential to evaluate the underlying causes for no cturia so that you have the option of treating the minor issues and the oppor tunity to nd something serious early. Treatments could be as simple as modications in your diet or uid intake to simple medications or over-the-counter supplements and even exercise.

We are a direct lender offering the following loan products: Making dreams come true... SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 The average investor has no plan to address another financial crisis. That non-plan is a great plan as long as you are certain there will not be another equity crisis during the years in which you are retired or saving/investing for retirement. But if you are connected with current news, then you are well aware of a host of possible crises on the horizon. x If an equity crisis historically had happened so very infrequently, it still would be of great concern to retirees who do not have a lifetime time to recover from, for example, a 50 percent haircut. The truth is that crises are happening with greater frequency and they concern old and young investors. In fact, the previously wildly accepted statistics upon which many equity portfolios were constructed are now understood to be very wrong (Morningstar, Its Dj vu All Over Again). A core concept in investing is to increase value and then to compound upon the increase. But the compounding cant happen if every few years the portfolio gets knocked down (20 percent to 55 percent, for instance). For some, the experience is like the childs game of Chutes and Ladders; pretty hard to get to the top of the game board if you keep landing on a space that suddenly slides you all the way back down to a much lower level. And the knock-downs in equities between 1980 and 2011 have required a rethink and a re-work by financial statisticians and theorists about optimal portfolio asset allocations. Now what happens in a financial market crisis? Typically, all assets decline together even an equity portfolio that prior to the crisis was labeled diversified. The diversification that an investor thought he had often disappears in a crisis. A meltdown starts with a big decline in the S&P, and then it triggers institutional selling as certain risk thresholds have been violated (CME Group, Crisis Alpha and In Search of Crisis Alpha). And the individual investor, who was seemingly rational in a normal market, now adopts a different investing persona maybe selling at the bottom, maybe freezing in panic, maybe attempting to liquidate hedge funds and private equity or other illiquid positions (prior source). Part of the risk management solution might well entail inclusion of an asset class in the portfolio which has historically delivered positive returns during turbulent times, also known as crisis alpha i.e. a positive return above the market not related to the market (prior source). Lets look at 2008, the year of the meltdown: the only alternative asset class that delivered positive returns was managed futures (measured as the Commodity Trading Adviser Index or CTA Index) and the spread between the S&P 500 and managed futures was a whopping 53 percent (May 2010, Managed Futures Today, Thirty Years of Managed Futures). Yes, 1987, 1998, 2000-2002, 2008-2009 are all crises in past history and history NEVER repeats itself. But it doesnt mean that there isnt a lot to be learned from history. What can be learned is that managed futures had five losses in the past 31 years: four losses were under 1.8 percent and 2011 suffered the worst performance for CTAs at a loss of 3.5 percent. (prior source) Lets compare the CTA Index to the S&P 500 during recent years of crisis. In 1987, the spread of return in favor of managed futures was: 55 percent; 1990 was 27 percent; 2000 was 18 percent; 2001 was 14 percent; 2002 was 36 percent; and 2008 was 53 percent. (prior source) If the need for a plan to handle major equity contractions and crises is so critical to all, especially older, investors, then why are there so few investors with such plans? Either they are in denial of such events; they have experienced so many crises that accept such as past of the new normal; or their adviser is not putting the topic of portfolio risk management front and center before the client. And why might the latter be the case? First, many managers think it is not a great topic. Picture this: a client comes to an adviser for portfolio review and is already on edge about world events and 2011s S&P 500 was up, down, up and then ended flat. So the adviser has to calm the investor to stay the course, i.e. think long term, be well positioned for the future, etc. All good. But in that bullish context, is it probable that the adviser will talk about the frequency of crises and portfolio protection that the last 11 years has been Chutes and Ladders? I do not think so. Second, the great majority of investment advisers are not registered to sell nor trained to explain managed futures. Yes, I am talking my book, but this is not a story suggesting that you jump ship from the traditional asset class. It is a statement that you really need to look at why you dont have a plan for a crisis and that there is an asset class that has done well in normal times and exceptionally well in times of a crisis and might actually become a cornerstone for a portfolio risk plan. Consult your adviser, seek counsel of multiple advisers and certainly consider the insight of professionals who are specialists. And after all that talking, create a plan.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL Company Research 101Always do your homework before investing in any company. Below are the kinds of questions you should ask about any potential investment. (Dont be intimidated or discouraged by this list. You neednt master everything at once. Beginning investors should just keep learning slowly. We can help you at fool.com, and you can learn a lot from books by experts like Peter Lynch, too.) What business is the company in? Whats its business model (that is, how exactly does it make its money)? Is it in a profitable and growing industry? Whats the companys track record? Has it regularly rewarded shareholders? Have revenues and earnings been increasing in past years? How do these numbers compare with those of rivals? What can you learn from its financial statements? Has its debt level been rising or falling? Are accounts receivable and inventories growing no faster than revenues? Are profit margins healthy and, What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Too Few NumbersQI want to find great stocks. Should I look for low P/E ratios and high dividend yields? M.J., Goshen, Ind.AThose are promising criteria, but theyre not fail-safe. For one thing, youll miss outstanding investments that pay little or no dividends. For example, Apple and Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaway pay no dividends. Companies also sometimes sport high yields and low price-to-earnings ratios only because their stock price has tumbled due to some major trouble. Consider The New York Times Co. In recent years, its revenue has shrunk, and its earnings per share (EPS) has sputtered. Over the past decade, its stock price dropped from the $40s to less than $10 per share. It kept raising its dividend during much of that time, until slashing and then suspending it in 2008. Until that point, its yield was rising, looking increasingly attractive and even topping 5 percent. But behind the fat yield was a floundering company. Never make a purchase decision based on only a few numbers. The more you learn about a company, the sounder your decision should be. QIs it smart to buy more shares of a stock when its price has fallen? L.E., Watertown, S.D.AThis is called averaging down. Its often regrettable because theres frequently a good reason why a stock is dropping. There are some exceptions to this rule, though. For example, perhaps the entire market has swooned, taking your holding with it. Or maybe the market seems to have significantly overreacted to your companys latest news, sending its shares down sharply. If so, you can snap up some bargain-priced shares. Before you average down, always take the time to re-evaluate the business. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Smartest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich ideally, growing? How about return on equity (ROE), return on assets (ROA) and other measures? Are there any red flags to investigate further? Is anything in the statements unusually cryptic? (Its often best to steer clear of companies you dont understand very well. There are plenty of profits available in companies you understand.) What are the companys competitive advantages? Does it have a strong brand? Is it a leader in its field? Is it gaining market share? Do you have confidence in management and its ability and dedication to keep the company growing, to be straight with shareholders and to look out for shareholder interests? What are the risks that the company and its investors face? What could go wrong? Is the stock valued attractively? This is a difficult question to answer for any stock, and theres usually no one right answer, either. Still, you might begin by looking at the companys current P/E ratio, comparing it to the firms historical numbers. Next week well review some resources to help you answer these questions. Bad TimingIn 2007, I worked in the gypsum industry and knew that USG was a great company. I saw that the price had dropped, and Warren Buffett was buying shares. So I bought at $49, figuring that when housing recovered, USG would soar. Well, Im still waiting and its now down near $13. Maybe housing will recover sometime in my lifetime, maybe not. George, onlineThe Fool Responds: Sometimes we must wait a long time for depressed stock prices to get back to more reasonable levels. The beleaguered housing industry has kept many companies down, and it may still be a while before it really heats up again. There have been some promising signs, though. The homebuilding company Lennar recently reported a 20 percent jump in orders which boosted USGs stock price by 10 percent, as investors anticipated growing sales of drywall. The protracted sluggishness of USG stock is a great reminder of why we should only invest long-term money in stocks. In the short term, anything can happen. We should focus on where we expect a stock to be many years from now. The Motley Fool TakeThe Pentagon RefocusesThe Pentagon recently began cutting billions of dollars from its 2013 budget. Planned cuts range from delaying orders for a new aircraft carrier from Huntington Ingalls, to shrinking the Army by an additional 30,000 soldiers, to slowing down the rate of purchase of Lockheed Martins new F-35 stealth fighter jet. How will America do more with less? In part, by shifting from high-cost manned weapons to lower-cost robotic ones. The U.S. Marine Corps plans to weaponize more Textron Shadow unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Historically, the Shadow has been unarmed, used primarily for observation.

The Marines now want to cut out the middleman and turn the Shadow into a shooter in its own right. But at just 11 feet long with a 14-foot wingspan, the Shadow is far too small to carry most conventional munitions. The solution: Build smaller bombs. The Pentagon has already tasked Alliant Techsystems and Raytheon with developing miniature guided bombs (25 pounds or less). The Marines are testing a different munition. If these work and small UAVs such as the Shadow can operate as armed drones, this should result in new sales opportunities for the major defense weapons makers and savings for U.S. taxpayers.

Shirley Street BEST PRICES IN TOWN! Weis-Buy Farms, a Fort Myers produce trader that provides the link between growers and shippers and ultimately consumers. Weve have an oversupply. We havent had these types of prices in Florida since Thanksgiving. One Fort Myers farm stand is currently charging between $1.39 to $2.39 per pound, says the owner, who declined to provide his name. We havent had a good crop from Florida in two years, he says. Prices were higher because we had to buy them out of Mexico. It cost me about $1.75 a tomato. I sold them by the pound at maybe 50 cents more than what I paid. Now, everyone has them and the market is very low. Consumers around the country paid more for tomatoes in 2010 and 2011 after prolonged freezing temperatures destroyed thousands of acres of crops. A cold snap in February 2010 wiped out nearly 70 percent of the states 31,300acres of tomatoes, increasing wholesale prices 400 percent and forcing some fast food chains to hold the tomato unless requested by customers. Whats happened is the last few years weve had a freeze here, so Mexican prices got higher, says Mr. Weisinger. Fresh produce is strictly a supply-anddemand operation. On average, Florida produces about 25 million pounds of tomatoes a week. The lingering freeze in 2010 reduced the states weekly production to just 1.1 million pounds for several weeks. More than 29 million pounds of tomatoes were shipped from Florida last week, pushing the seasonto-date total to 471.6 million pounds. Those numbers dont factor in the 10.4 million pounds of Floridagrown cherry, grape, plum and organic tomatoes. Wholesale prices for a 25-pound box of tomatoes fluctuate weekly during Floridas October-to-May growing season. They hit $32.80 at the height of the freeze during the 2010-11 harvest although the seasonal average was $11.93. Despite more severe weather in 2009-2010, boxes capped at $29.28 but posted a higher yearly average of $14.39. The USDAs weekly tomato report showed boxes of mature Florida greens, created to ripen evenly during shipping and on store shelves, sold between $7.95 and $9.95 Feb. 10-16. It also noted a moderate to fairly good demand for Florida tomatoes and a steady market. Florida shipped 902.5 million pounds of tomatoes during the 2010-11 season, compared to nearly 698.5 million pounds the previous year, according to the Florida Tomato Committee. The total cash value for Floridas tomato crop was $430.8 million last year up from $402.1 million in 2010 This years bumper crop will have no impact on the menu at Naples Tomato, where the only Florida, let alone domestic tomatoes, it uses are cherry tomatoes. The rest are imported from Italy, according to an employee who answered the phone. While consumers and grocery stores reap the benefits of a bumper tomato crop, Floridas farmers wont fare so well, says Mr. Weisinger. Youre going to see more volume out of Florida the next month, he says. Farmers have produce in the ground, it gets ripe and they have no choice but to harvest it. They have to get something for their crop. Theyre forced to sell at what the market will pay them. In some parts of Florida, farmers are reportedly plowing over ripe crops because harvest and production costs outweigh any profitability. Mr. Weisinger says that $8 box equates to just $2.50 in the farmers pocket after harvesting, packing and shipping fees are factored in. By contrast, the supermarket will make a killing, getting $24.75 at a 99 cent per pound retail price. During the last week, I guarantee you the farmer got between $2 and $2.50 a box, says Mr. Weisinger. The Florida market is decrepit; its almost at the cost of production. Also driving down prices may be an overall decline in demand for tomatoes or any produce for that matter, says Mr. Weisinger. Were beginning to see consumption dropping and its not because the favors arent good or the product not healthy, he says. Florida grows the healthiest produce in the world. People now go to Publix and buy a premade salad. They dont buy a tomato or a pepper. Demand has been flat since a few days after the Christmas holiday, he adds. I dont know what people are eating but its not potatoes or tomatoes. The decreased demand could also date back to 2008 when a salmonella outbreak was initially blamed on tomatoes. Tomato prices are on the decline at vendor stands at the North Naples Green Market and Oakes Family Market in Naples, say employees there. Tomato consumers should enjoy todays prices while they can. Come early spring, when Floridas tomato season is winding down, a dwindling supply is likely again to increase prices. The fall is good for Florida farmers, and in early spring we seem to be by ourselves in Southwest Florida, says Mr. Weisinger. Were in charge of the tomato market for 2 months starting in March.

George Hamilton, actorGeorge Georgesmeets 72-year-old icon who still likes challenges welcomes one in La Cage aux FollesGeorge Hamilton likes a challenge. And what better challenge can a 72-yearold icon have than as a gay club owner? George, meet Georges. Thats his character in the touring production of La Cage aux Folles, which plays Feb. 28-March 4 at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples. For me, I wanted to do something that was challenging and not just a show or an old saw, which I could do, the actor says by phone from a tour stop in Washington, D.C. Mr. Hamilton began his stage career back in the 1950s and most recently starred as Billy Flynn in Chicago a few years ago. This tour of La Cage was launched in October, and after four months on the road, Mr. Hamilton has reached his comfort zone. Once you know the person youre working with, then the pleasure starts to come out. Thats where I am now, he says.BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@ oridaweekly.com SEE GEORGES, C4 PAUL KOLNIK / COURTESY PHOTOSChristopher Sieber, left, and George Hamilton in La Cage aux Folles.

Those big-money negotiators and Wall Street deal brokers men in thousand-dollar suits with summer houses on the shore who toy with the economy the way children handle other peoples things (carelessly) the 1 percent that has the rest of us up in arms, what advice could they possibly have on romance? Recently the Internet has given us the Goldman Sachs gossip feed on Twitter where anonymous users post exchanges overheard in the companys elevators. The 140-character quips offer an intensely private, intensely personal look into the minds of Americas ruling class. Its what bankers say when they think no one is listening. From earlier in the month:#1: I wish I invested in poverty. Its up 60 percent since 2001. #2: We did.And: #1: Its rough. A good friend of mine from associate training just got laid off. #2: I guess hes not your friend anymore.Of course, finance is a male-dominated field, so a lot of the talk comes off sounding like frat house chatter:#1: Lately, I dont even call it a hangover anymore. Its just the morning.And their approach to romance isnt much better:#1: Girls with huge boobs will never know if theyre really interesting.Or:#1: Skinny jeans and a fur coat. Looks sexy as hell, but reeks of high-maintenance. #2: High-maintenance is sexy.How do these overpaid, under-cultured Lotharios handle a woman once theyve snared her?#1: Chivalry is letting the chick still in your bed sleep in, then giving the doorman $100 to go kick her out in an hour.The most frustrating part about these guys is that theyre kind of funny actually, a lot funny and I have to wonder if this is what circulates through the male brain when we eliminate civilizing forces. Is this how all men would think if we stripped away compassion, sensitivity and respect? Perhaps this is pure, unvarnished manhood.#1: OK . Id never date a chick who . #2: Cites the Huffington Post. #3: Watches Greys Anatomy. #4: Works in finance. [High fives all around]But even the biggest brutes can offer surprising bits of wisdom about life and love.#1: The PWM chicks know how to dress. #2 (nods): Pretty good wife material. Hot but not sl utty -looking. Smart but not too smart.So here it is, translated into financier speak: What a lot of men are really thinking when it comes to finding a wife. Its the same advice Ive read in relationship books; the same suggestions the Millionaire Matchmaker gives every week. Men want women who dress well, who take care of themselves, who are attractive and sensual but not sleazy. A man wants a woman who is bright, who can talk about books and world events, but who wont beat him at Words with Friends. Smart but not too smart. Its not terrible advice if we can overlook the source, and sometimes the best wisdom comes from the most unexpected places. After all, bankers are people, too. #1: Were like Ron Jeremy. We work hard, people are disgusted by us, but most guys are jealous of what weve got.

Anne Lozynski, D.V.M THIRD STREET SOUTHThe Birthplace of Old Naples GLORIOUS FOOD, GREAT SHOPS & GRACEFUL BYWAYSGlamour & Good Times Since the 1930s ARTISTS AMONG USBrian Kirkpatrick BY MOLLY DOESpecial to Florida WeeklyBrian Kirkpatrick found his passion for art while on vacation nine years ago to Venice, Italy. He says the trip changed his life. I had never seen so many colors in one place. The next day, I went to an art store and bought supplies. I havent stopped painting since that day. Today, location still plays a big role in his artistic inspirations. Mr. Kirkpatrick is a seasonal resident of Southwest Florida, spending the winter and spring in Naples and summer and fall in Marthas Vineyard and Connecticut. In Florida, he enjoys painting the Naples Pier, various beaches, the Everglades and especially people. When not making art, he enjoys flyfishing and walking the beaches, camera at hand in case he sees something that inspires his artwork. His art-rich hometown of Mystic, Conn., has also influenced his subject matter. He spent many childhood days hiking the trails, fishing the waterways and horseback riding through the great outdoors. Today his paintings, handbags and cigar boxes usually include vivid and youthful depictions of wildlife and nature. His neighbor was an artist. We were told not to look in her studio window. But, one day I did, he recalls. The walls were covered with beautiful paintings. That might have been his first introduction to the art world, but he got more practical lessons as a teenager. At age 14, I worked in my familys painting business and began mixing colors to match clients wallpapers and fabrics. It could take hours to match a color. Those lessons about the values of color stuck with him; the color in his paintings is one of the first things people notice and remember. He has painted with watercolor and oil, but he prefers the more vibrant color that acrylics give him. Although others have described his style as anything from folk art to coastal pop art, Mr. Kirkpatrick doesnt define himself by any specific style. His BK signature was recommended by James Dixon, the agent for Comedy Central TV personalities like John Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Mr. Dixon was the first buyer of Mr. Kirkpatricks artwork from his first art show, which was at Tree House Gallery on Marthas Vineyard. Dixon told me I should write BK at the bottom of my works, so I did. And I still do on every piece, he says. Today, Mr. Kirkpatricks artwork can be seen in Redbone Gallery in Islamorada, Fla.; Tradewinds Gallery in Mystic, Conn.; and Old Sculpin Gallery in Edgartown, Marthas Vineyard, Mass. He also participates in the Naples Art Associations monthly Art in the Park. Artists Among Us is provided to Florida Weekly by the Naples Art Association, which operates The von Liebig Art Center and serves artists, students, art lovers and fellow nonprofit services through education, festivals, exhibitions and community outreach.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 And part of that comfort level comes from his cast mates. Youre working with first-rate performers, and Chris Sieber is just great, he says. Mr. Sieber plays Albin, Mr. Hamiltons life partner and a man who has an alter ego as Zaza, the star of the SaintTropez drag club. Hes a powerhouse, and Im supposed to be the straight man to this flamboyant transvestite entertainer in a club, he says. In the show, the two men have raised Georges son as their own. But when the boy returns home with his fiance, he wants the womans very conservative parents to meet his father, sans Albin. From there, the fun ensues in a show that asks what it means to be a family. The world of Broadway is a much different place now than it was in 1983, when the Jerry Herman-Harvey Fierstein musical had its debut. And its even more removed from the theaters of the 1950s, when Mr. Hamilton made his debut. Technology has changed everything, he says. We have microphones. We used to have to project to the back of the room, he says. Its something you have to learn to do differently and let the sound man worry about. And thats a challenge in itself. Every time you go back to the theater, you have to accommodate whats going on in the theater, he says. I mean, your drummer could be in the basement and you dont even see him except over a monitor. Speaking of challenges, Mr. Hamilton tore his Achilles tendon before the show began, and his leg has to be wrapped before each performance. Its fairly immobile so I cant tear the Achilles, and out of 110 I have not missed a performance, he says matterof-factly. Thats part of his makeup. I like to take on stuff a little above my depth. I like to take on something where you grow in another way, he says. Take Dancing with the Stars. My agent said, You must be out of your mind, and I realized I must be out of my mind, he says. When a fellow DWTS contestant, wide receiver Jerry Rice, complained during the taping, Mr. Hamilton says he told Mr. Rice to suck it up. I grew up a professional. I like that work ethic. Each time I do it I do it a little bit better, he says. Thats important for a man who can choose his projects. Im at a point in my life where I like to do the things I want to do, he says. He has worked in film, causing the girls to swoon in Where the Boys Are and the boys to do so two decades later in Zorro: The Gay Blade. He also starred in The Godfather III. What is film about? Its about showing up and doing a job, and the camaraderie, he says. Bob Mitchum liked that. Clark Cable said that. They liked to have someplace to show up at 7 in the morning and visit with the crew. Then theres the live stage. The theaters a totally different animal. Once youve got the directors notes, you go out there and put your performance together, he says. That gives you the abilities to work on the nuances of it. Its different from TV reality shows, where you make a mistake and millions see it. He laughs. I feel like Seabiscuit. Theyve got me out there hes been out there and maybe theyll use him for breeding stock, he says. So he stretches himself as an artist, and people take shots at him. Its sort of the bravery of being an actor, he says. Youd better set yourself up for rejection. But then, he says, Ive never seen it as rejection. And rejection is certainly not something hes seen with La Cage Aux Folles. What I love about this and makes me laugh, my agent said to me, You know youre playing this gay entrepreneur and there are places where you might get boycotted, and I said, Boycotted? And as we went on, there were busloads of 80-year-old women with flowers, and one sent me her bloomers, he laughs. There is a larger picture to the show, he says. I think what rises above this whole thing is that you be true to yourself and to who you love. Thats what comes out of this show. Thats what you come to see. And it doesnt matter whether youre gay or not. making and more than 15 years of experience in mixed-media design and manufacturing.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 THEATER REVIEWA doubt-less Doubt misses the point altogether nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com What do you do when you arent sure? asks Father Flynn at the opening of Doubt: A Parable. Hes giving a sermon about doubt to a congregation that recently experienced the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. But you get the feeling hes talking about personal struggles, too. The sermon sets the tone for the rest of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Set in 1964 in a Bronx parochial school, the story revolves around the schools principal, Sister Aloysius (Megan McCombs) who suspects Father Flynn (Dan Lamey) is interfering with Donald Muller, the schools first black student. She tries to get Sister James (Devan McGaughey), a young, nave nun teaching at the school, and the boys mother, Mrs. Muller (Sonya McCarter), to assist her in getting the priest removed from the parish. John Patrick Shanleys play not only received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2005, but also the Tony Award for Best Play, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding New Play and the Drama Desk Award for Best New Play. And they were all well deserved. The plays genius is that, when performed correctly, it causes the playgoer to experience doubt. You flip-flop back and forth: Is Father Flynn guilty or innocent? Is Sister Aloysius on a witch hunt, or is she protecting a student? Unfortunately, the current production at the Sugden Community Theatre, which plays through Feb. 25, lacks nuance. Under John McKerrows direction, the play is reduced to a story about a child-molesting priest. In his Directors Notes, Mr. McKerrow shares that, The play and the concept of Doubt hit home personally because I served as an altar boy for seven years as a child in the s and 0s. The world that I felt was simple and innocent then was exposed to be anything but, when two priests with whom I had served with were indicted for sexual abuse as part of the incredible revelations that have rocked the Catholic Church in recent years Sister Aloysius is a woman who is ahead of her time in recognizing a problem and the need to act. The way Doubt played on Broadway (and also at the Florida Repertory Theatres production), it was impossible to know for certain whether Father Flynn is guilty. Its possible hes gay, but that does not necessarily mean hes a pedophile and has molested the boy. The priest and the nun also represent two diametrically opposed approaches to the church. Sister Aloysius represents the old tradition: She doesnt want the students to use ballpoint pens, she thinks Frosty the Snowman espouses a pagan belief in magic, and she believes students should be scared of nuns and priests. Father Flynn represents a more progressive view, believing priests and nuns should be friendly and approachable. And he doesnt see anything wrong with including a rendition of Frosty the Snowman in the schools Christmas pageant. Doubt: A Parable is wonderfully layered. Its not only about a priest whos a possible pedophile, but about gender inequality in the church, church hierarchy, race relations in the era of the Civil Rights movement and traditional vs. progressive views in the church. Mr. Shanleys script causes us to not only experience but to examine the very nature of doubt: Why do we believe what we believe? How can we know for certain? Can we know for certain? What do we do with our doubts? Ms. McCombs gives an incredibly powerful performance as Sister Aloysius, working herself into a frenzy about Father Flynn. She views the world through flinty eyes, always sure that someone is up to no good. Shes severe, made of stone through and through. Ms. McCombs is not seen often enough onstage at the Sugden, and Id gladly attend any play in which she appears. Her portrayal of Sister Aloysius is tremendous. However, shes hampered somewhat by Mr. McKerrows direction. The production would have been stronger, too, if she were paired with an actor equal to her talent. While Rev. Lamey, who in real life is an assistant pastor in Naples, delivers the plays sermons well, hes not as skilled when playing a priest who may or may not be gay, and may or may not be a pedophile. He presents an unfortunate false jollity much of the time, and his demeanor and mature age add extra layers of creepiness. If we were able to feel more empathy toward his character, this would have been a more emotionally fulfilling production. Ms. McGaughey, making her debut with The Naples Players, is perfect in her role as Sister James: innocent and nave. And Ms. McCarter, in a small but highly effective role as Donalds mother, walks that fine line between wanting to protect her son while also respecting those who work in the church. She brings a layer of complexity to this production. As a black woman living in the 1960s, her character knows all about having to make compromises and making the best in a world that doesnt even want to acknowledge her. Staging this play in the Tobye Studio presents challenges; at times, some of the audience could only see the actors backs during key scenes. And not only did lighting and set designer Jeff Weiss have to create three separate and distinct environments in that small space, but he had to do it for an audience that wraps around the stage three quarters of the way. So he went with a minimum of props and effective use of lighting. The faux stained glass picture behind the pulpit is an especially clever touch; its an image of Jesus appearing to the disciple Thomas known as Doubting Thomas after His resurrection. Its a very intimate image; Jesus has his robe open, and Thomas is touching the wound in His side. (Thomas had declared he needed definite proof that he could see and touch, before he could believe.) Mr. McKerrow has also added an intermission to this 90-minute play, which is usually presented in one act, without interruption. Im not sure why he made this decision, as it breaks the plays momentum. Child-raping priests are a very real and despicable reality, exacerbated by the fact that their crimes are covered up and ignored by the church hierarchy. But that isnt necessarily what Doubt is about. This production has a moving performance by Ms. McCombs, but unfortunately, the play lacks the complexities and layers that would have toyed with the audiences emotions and made them feel as if they were standing on constantly shifting sand. This Doubt has too many certainties and not enough doubt.

YesThis Means War has so much handsomeness, beauty and charm that it almost makes you forget how bad a movie it is. Almost. Surely, ridiculous implausibility and inane storytelling are enough to undo any movie, right? Well, Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are here to challenge that notion with their big blue movie-star eyes, million-dollar smiles and delightful senses of humor. Hardy and Pine play C.I.A. operatives/best friends Tuck and FDR, respectively, who are working to stop a terrorist named Heinrich (Til Schweiger) from world domination. Tuck has an ex-wife (Abigail Spencer) and son (John Paul Ruttan), while FDR is the consummate ladies man. Things are peachy between Tuck and FDR until each meets and becomes infatuated with Lauren (Witherspoon), an unlucky-in-love single woman whose job as a consumer reports executive should make her uniquely qualified to judge between two quality products. Knowing that they are in competition for her, both men use all the C.I.A. resources they can find in hopes of getting the upper hand. But even with the help of best friend Trish (a hilarious Chelsea Handler), Lauren cant choose and considering the rugged manliness of Hardy and the pretty-boy hotness of Pine, who can blame her? As for Tuck and FDR, friendship be damned this is Reese Witherspoon theyre fighting for, after all. The best moments come when director McG shows the guys one-up each other as they date Lauren, the highlight of which comes when Tuck takes her paintballing to show that hes not all safe. Clearly, the actors are having a good time with this as they should which makes it only a minor nuisance that bad-guy Heinrich insists on popping up in order to keep the throwntogether plot intact. But just when you think its all silly fun, McG unleashes some stunning camera work that will please even the most nay-saying cineastes. Specifically, on Lauren and FDRs first date theres a long-take tracking shot that is something of a technical marvel: We see Lauren and FDR outside as they walk into a club, through a crowd and to their table, which has been brought out just for them. Its a respectable homage to the Copacabana sequence in Goodfellas, and any film lover should appreciate the time, choreography and patience it takes to capture such a shot. Sure, its a nugget of aesthetic gold inside a Hollywood cash register, but darn if it doesnt make everything else that much more tolerable. This Means War is one scene too long and full of things that could never possibly happen. But its also the kind of movie you cant help but like, featuring a story told with such whimsy and glee that the only possible way to react to it is to smile. And so I smiled. Safe House (Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Vera Farmiga) Young CIA Agent Matt Weston (Reynolds) attempts to keep rogue former agent Tobin Frost (Washington) in custody as they travel through South Africa. The story is predictable and the action is over edited to the point of nausea. Rated R.Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (Dwayne Johnson, Josh Hutcherson, Michael Caine) Punk teenager Sean (Hutcherson) and his mothers (Kristin Davis) boyfriend (Johnson) search for Seans grandfather (Caine) on a lost island. Its loosely based on the Jules Verne novel, and book lovers will smile at the liberties taken with classic literature; but the acting, dialog, story and visual effects are nothing to write home about. Rated PG.The Woman in Black (Daniel Radcliffe, Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer) A London lawyer (Radcliffe) out to prove himself takes a job in the English countryside searching for a dead womans will. Little does he know her house is haunted. Radcliffe is impressive in his first big non-Harry Potter role, and there are some quality scares along the way. Rated PG-13.

50% NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 C21 BEACH READINGThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green (Dutton Juvenile, $17.99)REVIEWED BY EALISH WADDELLHazel and Augustus are teens struggling, as all teens do, with the meaning of life and love. But unlike most teens, they are cancer kids, already intimately familiar with suffering and highly attuned to the arbitrariness and unfairness of the universe. When they meet at a support-group meeting, its fascination at first sight, and over discussions of everything from anime to the afterlife, those feelings deepen. But Hazels illness is terminal, and she knows she doesnt have much time left. Shes resolved not to let Gus get too close, hoping to spare him from the inevitable grief ahead. Gus, however, is determined to seize the moment. In a grand romantic gesture, he arranges for Hazel to travel with him to Amsterdam to meet her favorite author, an eccentric recluse whose sole book, about a cancer-stricken girl much like herself, Hazel looks to as a bible. Its a trip that will have unexpected repercussions for them both, revealing bittersweet truths about the world and each other. Filled with raw honesty and wry humor, this is a book hilarious and heartbreaking by turns, often philosophical but never maudlin or facile. Hazels edginess is leavened by empathy and compassion; shes fatalistic but not bitter, sarcastic but not sullen. Shes as interested in the joys of the world as she is in its absurdities. Gus too is a believable teen-boy mix of poetry-quoting idealist and videogame-loving couch warrior. These feel like real people, which makes their fates ache all the more. Thoughout the book, Hazel and Gus use OK as a shorthand for the complicated feelings they cant always express in words. Its an apt metaphor for the way they approach their difficult lives: Its OK to be brave and hopeful, and its also OK to be angry and scared. It isnt easy and it isnt fair, but its OK.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYARTS TWO C25ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTSociety Vino Cuisine WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 Designed for Death by Jean Harrington. Carina Press. E-book. $4.99. After The Barefoot Queen and In the Lions Mouth, two exciting and carefully researched Irish historical romances set during the Renaissance period, Jean Harrington has shifted gears to the here and now. The here in Designed for Death is the beachfront condo world of Naples; the now refers to the world of e-publishing as well as to the timeframe for the novel. The authors connection with Carina Press puts her inside the Harlequin empire. Carina is a division of Harlequin devoted to e-publishing on a large scale. Certain Carina Press titles may later be selected for print publication. Designed for Death takes place in and around the fictional but probable complex of Surfside, where recently widowed interior designer Devalera Deva Dunne has settled to restart her life. Little does she know what her new community has in store for her. Deva is attempting to re-establish her interior design career by helping Surfsides owner, Dick Parker, turn rental apartments into condos. Shes also getting business from new condo owners who are looking to individualize their homes. One of these clients is a tall, striking woman named Treasure, once a regular at the Foxy Lady Lounge on Route 951. Deva and Treasure are getting along fine selecting the ingredients for the classic Hollywood dcor Treasure desires. Before long, however, Deva finds Treasure murdered in the condo a gruesome ending to a brief friendship. Not satisfied with Lt. Victor Rossis official investigation, Deva begins her own sleuthing, much to the handsome policemans dismay. Emotionally vulnerable after the loss of her husband, Deva is suspicious of the advances of several Surfside residents: (supposed) bachelor Simon Yeager, Neal Tomson and the married Mr. Parker, who is Devas main source of income. Could either of the bickering partners Chip and AudreyAnn be guilty of infidelity and murder? And what about Faye LaBelle, drag queen extraordinaire, who was once Treasures roommate? Faye no doubt felt betrayed when Treasure, his gay lover once named Tom, underwent a sex change operation to become a woman. Along the way, Rossi discovers that the blood trail on Treasures carpet is a womans. But does the blood belong to the murderer? The books notable scenes include Devas visit to the Foxy Lady Lounge, where she picks up pieces of information and witnesses a colorful scene that includes drag queen Hedda Lettuce, Fayes partner in the establishment. Another is Treasures funeral, more like an Irish wake, in which good memories and high spirits help friends and acquaintances cope with their loss. As Devas investigation advances, she is always butting heads (figuratively, though she wouldnt mind if it happened literally) with Rossi. There are signs that he might be attracted to her and that his gruff warnings for her to leave the police work to him are motivated by something other than professional policy or pride. Aside from the expected twists and turns of a well-developed mystery story, Designed for Death has other special attractions. The novel makes use of Devas training to present an abundance of nicely handled details about interior design. This focus provides an interesting way of creating insights into character, as peoples taste in design reveals a lot about them. And Deva has several client-suspects at the Surfside condos. She is surprisingly aggressive in tracking and examining physical clues, questioning Surfside residents and searching for motives. For readers who know Naples well, references to several eateries Mels Diner, St. George and two nearly adjacent places, one an Irish Pub and the other named Island Grill make for enjoyable ah-hah moments of recognition. Ms. Harringtons portayal of the Naples ambience is one of this books many charms. Not so very charming, but equally effective in building tension, is the way the author integrates awareness of the approaching hurricane season, eventually leading to a climax involving the terrors of a storm named Caroline that pins Deva down while Treasures murderer moves to put an end to Devas sleuthing. All through Designed for Death, Ms. Harrington finds opportunities to flesh out her protagonist. We learn much about Devas background, her relationship with her late husband and, in the unfolding present, her manner of coping with that enormous loss. One would expect that the author would not have drawn such an elaborate portrait had she not intended to put Deva to work in future novels. Meanwhile, enjoy this one. o o p n D s b philJASON email@example.com Writer turns to the here and now, including e-publishing COURTESY PHOTOJean Harrington

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 C27 The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers presents the All Star Jam with artists including Jeff Skunk Baxter (The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan) and Kenny Aronoff (The Smashing Pumpkins).

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC28 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 28 FT. BOAT SLIP FOR SALE$45,000Located at River Pointe Marina on Naples Bay, off 5th Avenue South For more information please call Jack Sumlin (239) 821-6767 Weller pottery was first made in 1872 in Fultonham, Ohio, but by 1882 Weller had moved to Zanesville, one of the main cities where pottery was made in Ohio. Hundreds of thousands of pieces of decorative art pottery and florist wares were made at Weller Pottery before it closed in 1948. It was a profitable pottery because its products were designed in the prevailing fashion and appealed to buyers. By the end of World War I, many pieces were being made in molds, then glazed in a variety of color combinations. Vases, wall pockets, jardinieres and other pieces were made to resemble real logs or frogs, and traditional vases were made with molded shapes that look like branches, animals, birds, flowers and even carved ivory. One very successful line, called Woodcraft, was made from 1917 to 1928. Each piece resembled a real log or tree trunk with raised birds, animals or fruit as extra decoration. The colors added to the illusion of real wood. The pattern is popular with Weller collectors today. Kovels Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2012 lists a 19-inch Woodcraft vase with a squirrel and owl for $960, an 8-inch wall pocket that looks like a branch with berries for $173 and a 14-inch tree trunk vase with an owl for $325. Q: My husband inherited an unusual oak chair from his grandmother. Our children call it the scary face chair because the chairs back is a carved wooden face that does indeed look scary. A label on the bottom says Made in Dayton, Ohio, by Stumps-Barnhardt. Please tell me how old this chair is and what its worth. A: Your chair is called a North Wind chair, a style popular during the late Victorian era (1880-1900) into the early 20th century. The face, from folklore, was supposed to blow evil spirits away. Many U.S. companies made them. But take another look at the label on your chair. It says Stomps-Burkhardt, not Stumps-Barnhardt. Gustave Stomps and his brother Joseph founded a furniture manufacturing business, G. Stomps Brothers & Co., in Dayton in 1859. The company became G. Stomps & Bro. in 1869, then Stomps-Burkhardt Co. in 1890, when Richard Burkhardt was named vice president and general manager. The company closed in about 1928. Your chair was made during the 1890s. Today it would sell for close to $500 if its in excellent and original condition. Q: One of our sons found an interesting bottle in the woods near our cabin.

It sold for $76 last fall at Conestoga Auction Co. in Manheim, Pa.covery/Roxbury, Mass. We would like to know who Dr. Kennedy was, what the medical discovery was and when this bottle was made. A: Donald Kennedy (1812-1889) was born in Scotland and immigrated to the United States in 1833. Kennedy apprenticed with a currier, a person who works with leather, and studied medicine in his spare time. He began selling his Medical Discovery in 1848. A newspaper ad in 1854 claimed it was the greatest medical discovery of the age and that it was warranted to cure every kind of humor (related to body fluids) except thunder humor. It sold for $1 a bottle and probably contained a mixture of herbs and alcohol. Dr. Kennedy made several other patented medicines and became very wealthy. His son, Dr. David Kennedy, took over the business when Donald died, and he continued to sell the Medical Discovery until 1928. The value of your bottle in good condition with no stains is $100. Q: I own a miniature metal building that has the words State Bank on the front. Its about 8 inches tall. There are no other marks on it. Id like to know what its worth. A: Your bank may have been made by Kenton Hardware Manufacturing Co., which was founded in Kenton, Ohio, by F.M. Perkins in 1890. At first, Kenton made locks. It became Kenton Hardware Co. in 1894 and began making cast-iron banks and toys. At one time, it was one of the largest cast-iron toy factories in the world. Kenton Toys was a trade name used by the company. Kenton closed in 1952. Most Kenton toys and banks were not marked, and many have been reproduced. The company made several versions of the State Bank in different sizes. Some were made with the name of the bank in letters arched over the door, and some with the letters in a straight line. Some versions were japanned or painted. An original Kenton State Bank sells for about $400 to $600, depending on size and condition. Tip: Never stack cut glass bowls. They chip easily.

JOHNS KNITS 25% 50% OFF Look for the Naughty Nook Fun Retail Lingerie Parties & Gifts our specialityThe secret of good declarer play lies mostly in visualizing how the unseen cards are divided and putting this knowledge to effective use. The clues that furnish declarer with a picture of the opposing hands can come from the bidding, the play or both. Consider this deal where declarer failed to process the many clues available. It was played in the South AfricaIreland match at the 1960 World Team Olympiad. The South African declarer got to four hearts doubled as shown, and West led the club queen. South won with the ace, cashed the ace of trumps, felling Easts king, then led a diamond and successfully finessed the queen. After discarding a club on the ace of diamonds, declarer led a spade to the king, losing to the ace. South eventually lost two more spades and a trump trick and finished down one, -200 points. He was able to ruff his fourth spade in dummy to prevent an even greater loss. Souths early plays were certainly correct. The diamond finesse, though dangerous, was necessary, but after it succeeded South should have reassessed his prospects and made the contract. It was a serious mistake to lead a spade to the king at trick five. To play a spade from dummy was surely right, but to play the king was surely wrong. South should have placed West with the spade ace for his takeout double, because East had already turned up with the king of hearts and (by inference from Wests opening lead) king of clubs. Had South played a low spade on Easts eight at trick five and later played a low spade again, he would have gained a spade trick and made the contract. He also would have been 990 points to the better.

This years signature vintner is Benovia Winery from Sonoma County. Recently Mike Sullivan, co-owner and winemaker at Benovia, took a break from bottling the 2010 vintage to talk about what makes his wines so special. What distinguishes Benovia from other Sonoma wineries? In part, it is the estate vineyards we own. We have 72 acres planted on three sites in the Russian River valley, and also have some exceptional vineyard partners that supplement our own production. Our vineyard portfolio is mostly planted in pinot noir, but the major distinction is that we make a stylistic wine that has some California properties, like expressive and ripe fruit, but with a foot in the Old World style. The wines have acidity and restraint and are made to work with different foods. What sustainable practices have you found particularly valuable, and how do they affect the winemaking process? We have a holistic approach to farming. We produce 96 percent of the energy we need from solar power. Our winery building runs east and west, and the roof facing south is clad in solar cells. Additionally, the Cohn vineyard will be organically certified next year, and all of our vineyards are farmed using sustainable practices. We fertilize with compost and use cover crops in the vineyards to fix the nitrogen into the soil. We do not use processed chemical fertilizers or non-organic sprays. The flavor differences we get are very subtle, but sustainable farming shows respect for the neighbors as well as the land. What motivated you to become a winemaker? I grew up in Sonoma. My parents were grape growers, and when I went to high school in the s, I fell in love with the local people and their passion for what they did, and wanted to stay in Sonoma. I didnt fall in love with wine until I was in my 20s. For me, it is passion with the people and the feelings of shared community and camaraderie that make winemaking here special. What does it mean to be the signature vintner of this years wine fest? We re very honored to be the signature vintner this year for a great organization benefitting The Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. One of our owners, Joe Anderson, was in the health-care business and recognized the need for support in Florida, so that was one of the reasons we wanted to get involved in the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest. Tell us about what people will taste in your wines. Pinot Noir: We bottle a number of single vineyard wines and seek to capture the essence of that place at that time. The Cohn vineyard has an especially nice aroma of rose petals, with rich black cherry and red raspberry fruit flavors and layers of spice for our signature wine. The Sonoma Coast pinot noir is more accessible, with softer flavors and tannins at release. In all, we make six different pinot noirs and a pinot noir rose. Chardonnay: The Sonoma Mountain comes from a single vineyard I own with my brothers. This is a cool site, and the wine shows orange nectarine, tropical fruits and pear flavors. The La Pommeraie Russian River Valley Chardonnay is an estate property that is grown in what once was an apple orchard. The wine has honeysuckle and orange aromas and flavors of candied orange. Zinfandel: Our zinfandel comes from the northern end of the Cohn vineyard and is made from gnarly old vines grown on the side of the mountain. The wine has lots of concentrated flavors and aromas of blackberries and kirsch and a long finish. Grenache: The grenache I planted 10 years ago with my brother, and for us it is a labor of l ove, because we both love grenache. With only 1 acres planted, we make about 100 cases, mostly just for ourselves. The higher elevation and cooler temperatures produce a wine that is full of black plum, cherries, currants and spices. The Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest will be held at Miromar Lakes Beach and Golf Club on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24-25. Tickets for Saturdays Grand Tasting are available at www. swflwinefest.org for $500 per person. e i a w jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com SULLIVAN
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 23-29, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C43 The English Pub has been pouring ale and dishing up fish and chips in Naples since 1969, which is practically another epoch of time when it comes to the history of Southwest Florida. When a restaurant has been in business for 43 years, it must be doing something right, and changing locations might seem to be a risky business move. Well, it appears that The English Pubs fans have moved right along with their watering hole from Linwood Avenue to a spot off the East Trail about three miles south. The dining room was rocking on a Wednesday night, with seniors busting moves to tunes from the 1950s to today provided by a one-man karaoke act. (The pub also is known for booking musical acts that pay tribute to the likes of Rod Stewart, ABBA and Neil Diamond.) Entertainment and camaraderie seem to be the main attractions, based on our sampling of the food. There are pleasures to be found in bar food if its executed with some attention to quality, consistency and flavor. A Scottish egg, a shepherds pie, even fish and chips, can be quite satisfying with quality ingredients and skillful preparation. That just didnt seem to be the case at The English Pub, where the food and service came across as indifferent and uninspired. Nevertheless, a steady flow of patrons kept tables turning in a dining room where every corner is utilized. The booth we were seated at was a very tight fit; we had to swing the table back and forth just to be able to shimmy into the pewlike armed benches one at a time. Obviously, no one on the staff has tried to sit at this table; otherwise, theyd realize how uncomfortable it is. The low-ceilinged room has the feel of a neighborhood pub. A portrait of Queen Elizabeth shares wall space with beer signs and flat-screen TV monitors showing English footie and other sports. Between the too-close tables and cave-like scale, the room can feel a bit claustrophobic. Better, perhaps, to ask for a table on the open-air patio. Our unenthusiastic waitress recited the draft beer list, which is unimpressive for an English tavern: the usual Guinness, Newcastle, Stella Artois on tap. My companions black-and-tan wasnt poured properly; the ale and stout mixed together rather than remaining distinctly separate. Service on the whole technically was fine but not overly cordial; drinks were refilled and plates were cleared in a timely fashion. For appetizers, we decided on a house specialty of kettle-fried potato chips and a tankard of bangers. (I apologize for not including prices here; the pubs website doesnt include them, and my credit-card bill wasnt itemized. Our tab, sans gratuity, was a reasonable $54.) Advertised as freshly fried, the chips were not hot. On the positive side, they were made from thick slices of potato, which gave them a heft that that we liked, and they were liberally salted so they had some flavor to them. The chips were supposed to be served with a chipotle dip, which we might have liked, but came with boring ranch dressing. A missed opportunity to do something different there. The bangers mini pork sausages were served not in a mug but in a cone-shaped basket, and a nearly bottomless one at that. We repeatedly reached in with forks, expecting to come up empty, but instead spearing yet another tasty link. They were served with a silken brown dipping sauce that was nondescript and really not essential; the bangers were addictive enough without it. Moving on to the main course, the choices closely adhere to traditional tavern comfort food cottage pie, liver and onions, pork chops with a few more interesting options such as a curry dish and braised lamb shank. The fish and chips were decent, though in a British restaurant Id expect plankstyle potatoes rather than the French fries served here. The thick fillet of white fish was encased in a crunchy batter that sealed in the fishs natural juices. Well done, and the aforementioned fries were crisp and fluffy even if they werent quite what was expected. A chicken and almond potpie was less impressive. While we liked the thick chunks of moist breast meat tucked into the dish along with peas and carrots, the bland sauce underneath the puff pastry lid desperately wanted seasoning. A dash of salt and pepper improved it considerably. The savory pie was paired with a pile of green beans that also needed seasoning. At least they werent overcooked. For dessert we shared a serving of sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream. This is a sponge cake that is supposed to be drenched in a butt ery brown sugar sauce, but both slices were exceedingly dry. There was a thin layer of syrupy moisture at the bottom of the cake wedges, but there was no escaping the fact that this was not an ideal representation of the classic British dessert. Has something been lost in translation during the restaurants move? Hard to say without having recently dined at the old location. Clearly, this long-lived, well-loved establishment has its fans, whether they come for the food or the fun.
