C1 When George Merritts wife Marion suffered a massive stroke in November 2008, he says he turned my most precious treasure over to strangers my friend for 70 years, my wife of 63 years, the mother of my 10 children. He turned to Avow Hospice, an organization he and his wife had not heard of but that their doctor recommended. They took a total stranger in and were very good to her. And they were able to relieve me of much suffering the last few days of her living when they took care of her. Mr. Merritt says there was no question I would support them afterward. I would do anything for them. A former copywriter with a background in marketing and advertising, he began writing sample letters and other ideas promoting Avow. His tag line The best friend my wife never knew she had became the central theme of this years advertising campaign, to great success. Four of Avow Hospices television commercials recently received platinum, gold and honorable mention AVA Awards from the Association of Marketing & Communication Professionals. The international competition garnered more than 1,700 entries. We wanted not just a branding focus, but to communicate about our services as best we can in 30 seconds, explains Deborah Jonsson, public relations manager with Avow. Those services include hospice care, which is mandated under Medicare, but also extras such as bereavement counseling, pet grief counseling, music therapy, massage therapy and BY ROBIN DEMATTIAFlorida Weekly Correspondent Award-winning spots showcase Avow servicesSEE AVOW, A30 DEB JONSSON / COURTESY PHOTOJim Heffernan and Patti Caroli, volunteer actors, in a commercial about Avow Hospice services for people who have COPD.

American Leather, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and certain other MRP collections excluded from custom order promotion. OFF%40MSRPUP TOSTOREWIDE SAVINGS* Just yesterday morning a half century ago, I got my first taste of solitude. Id wandered out of the cabin where my mother and grandmother were cleaning up after dinner (as we called the noon meal she served to all of us at once, including cowhands). Without much thought, I eased past the waist-high pile of old deer and elk antlers lying bone-white in the Colorado sun, ignored the outhouse and the chicken coop, briefly considered climbing into the hay barn beyond, then slipped warily along the flank of the big corrals, with the grain room and the saddle room standing above the fence rails like guard stations. On that day the corrals held about 20 head of yearling steers, as I remember it that was usually the case. Every one of them stopped chewing to eye me intently, their heads up, their nostrils flaring, breaking the still life only to lift a nervous tail and pie the dry dirt. Sometimes a small contingent would panic and wheel away across the corral; other times one or two would step out front and move with me inside the fence, hinting at belligerence. Once below the corrals, I made my way slowly across the long meadow to the south, toward the 14,000-foot Sangre de Cristos, which poked their pointy heads above the entire valley from a distance of 60 miles or so. No one noticed me, but when I reached the edge of the valley where the pine and aspen woods rose steeply and broke away from Wilson Creek to rise and fall over miles of ridges, I glanced back just once to make sure. Thats when it happened, and thats why I remember it so well: Death became a real possibility to me. Or at least an intimation of the pure absence of those I loved most finally dawned on me. For the first time, I understood something of uncut solitude, something of unsalvageable loss and I tasted the gorge of despair that goes with it for the inexperienced. What if, through no fault of my own, I was suddenly bereft, I wondered? What if I couldnt find my father down in the valley somewhere, because he was dead? What if I returned to that cabin to find everyone I ever knew or cared about gone, and now merely history? What would that feel like? It was also the first time I felt heavy dread, while standing alone. Besides, I was about to enter the heavy woods where black bears and mountain lions had been known to wander good reason for dread, as I viewed it. Since Id been prohibited from carrying or handling any rifle without my father present until I was older, I felt meanly placed, unjustifiably ill-equipped. I had my pocketknife and my slingshot, of course, but they began to seem less significant than they had up near the house. Then, Id considered myself the near-equal of Jim Bridger and Hugh Glass, so Id devised a foolish plan: To sneak into the woods and find Daddy, who had left with a gun in his hand hours before. Down in the valley the silence was complete. In those days, a week could go by before any other human being even happened past in a truck the nearest inhabited house was five miles away. Every couple of weeks, maybe, an airplane would go over. A single fly or a passing honeybee could seem as loud in the still air as a bow drawn suddenly over fiddle strings. And the sudden staccato rattle of a grasshopper, only faintly resembling the timber rattlesnakes of which I was afraid, could rocket a boy like me a boy with an eight-cylinder imagination in four-cylinder courage a good foot into orbit. I climbed up on a rock and tried to deal with the completely novel feelings. I watched the sky. I studied the great shadows of clouds sliding darkly through the pines on distant hillsides. I strained my eyes as far as I could see, ranging miles of country in hope of catching even the slightest movement that would foretell my fathers return. But he didnt come. I had to deal with loneliness alone. I noticed something, though; every time that unspeakable sadness would rise in me, every time I felt tears breeching, the hard land would shift or move or puff. A breeze, a distant bird swooping downward from the higher trees, a nearby chipmunk foraging something would happen. And then it would settle back again, implacable, eternal. Implacable and eternal. The Ute Indians had seen it and watched it forever, I knew. My grandfather and homesteaders I never met because they were dead before I was born had seen it. My parents and aunts and uncles had seen it and watched it. I had now seen it, and somebody would come after me to see it, too. The earth and sky didnt care if all of us were history and all of us are history, at one point or another. Perversely, perhaps, that gave me a sense of peace. And peace (I was incapable of this reasoning at the time) is a condition of mind that can tolerate any solitude, no matter how difficult. All of that came back to me the other day in about 30 seconds, when I looked into the beautiful, the uncompromising, the unflinching solitude of Clyde Butcher. Shortly after his son was killed in an automobile in 1986, he took a photograph called Ochopee. A distant and solitary island of trees lies sandwiched between earth and sky, the endless sawgrass rising below, the limitless clouds drifting above. Haunting in its loneliness, Mr. Butchers photo captures something implacable and eternal: that great natural peace that endures all torment. Note: This column first appeared on Sept. 1, 2010.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONNo substitute for victory amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The bipartisan nuclear bailoutSuper Tuesday demonstrated the rancor rife in Republican ranks, as the four remaining major candidates slug it out to see how far to the right of President Barack Obama they can go. While attacking him daily for the high cost of gasoline, both sides are traveling down the same perilous road in their support of nuclear power. This is mind-boggling, on the first anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, with the chair of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission warning that lessons from Fukushima have not been implemented in this country. Nevertheless, Democrats and Republicans agree on one thing: Theyre going to force nuclear power on the public, despite the astronomically high risks, both financial and environmental. One year ago, on March 11, 2011, the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami hit the northeast coast of Japan, causing more than 15,000 deaths, with 3,000 more missing and thousands of injuries. Japan is still reeling from the devastation environmentally, economically, socially and politically. Naoto Kan, Japans prime minister at the time, said last July, We will aim to bring about a society that can exist without nuclear power. He resigned in August after shutting down production at several power plants. He said that another catastrophe could force the mass evacuation of Tokyo, and even threaten Japans very existence. Only two of the 54 Japanese power plants that were online at the time of the Fukushima disaster are currently producing power. Kans successor, Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, supports nuclear power, but faces growing public opposition to it. This stands in stark contrast to the United States. Just about a year before Fukushima, President Obama announced $8 billion in loan guarantees to the Southern Company, the largest energy producer in the southeastern U.S., for the construction of two new nuclear power plants in Waynesboro, Ga., at the Vogtle power plant, on the South Carolina border. Since the 1979 nuclear accident at Three Mile Island in Pennsylv ania, and then the catastrophe at Chernobyl in 1986, there have been no new nuclear power plants built in the U.S. The 104 existing nuclear plants are all increasing in age, many nearing their originally slated life expectancy of 40 years. While campaigning for president in 2008, Barack Obama promised that nuclear power would remain part of the U.S.s energy mix. His chief adviser, David Axelrod, had consulted in the past for Illinois energy company ComEd, a subsidiary of Exelon, a major nuclear-energy producer. Obamas former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel played a key role in the formation of Exelon. In the past four years, Exelon employees have contributed more than $244,000 to the Obama campaign and that is not counting any soft-money contributions to PACs, or direct, corporate contributions to the new super PACs. Lamented by many for breaking key campaign promises (like closing Guantanamo, or accepting super PAC money), President Obama is fulfilling his promise to push nuclear power. That is why several groups sued the Nuclear Regulatory Commission last month. The NRC granted approval to the Southern Company to build the new reactors at the Vogtle plant despite a no vote from the NRC chair, Gregory Jaczko. He objected to the licenses over the absence of guarantees to implement recommendations made following the Japanese disaster. Jaczko said, I cannot support issuing this license as if Fukushima never happened. Stephen Smith, executive director of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, one of the plaintiffs in the suit against the NRC, explained how advocates for nuclear power distort market forces, since private investors simply dont want to touch nuclear: Theyve asked the federal government for loan guarantees to support the project, and they have not revealed the terms of that loan guarantee ... its socializing the risk and privatizing the profits. The Nuclear Information and Resource Service, noting the ongoing Republican attack on President Obamas loan guarantee to the failed solar power company Solyndra, said, The potential for taxpayer losses that would dwarf the Solyndra debacle is extraordinarily high ... this loan would be 15 times larger than the Solyndra loan, and is probably 50 times riskier. As long as our politicians dance to the tune of their donors, the threat of nuclear disaster will never be far off. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier, recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best-seller.If anyone does a year-end wrap-up of the worst ideas of 2012, losing the presidential election deserves to be high on the list. A note of gloomy wishfulness has entered Republican thinking of late. Maybe a loss in November (if Mitt Romney wins the nomination) wont be so bad because a cleansing fire will rid the party of moderates once and for all. Or, from the opposite point of view (if Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich were somehow to get nominated), a devastating defeat will teach the partys purists a lesson. In any event, a Republican Congress could foil President Barack Obamas noxious initiatives in a second term. All of this is hopefulness masquerading as hardheadedness. No shift in the balance of power within the Republican Party, no congressional check on the president, no silver lining can possibly outweigh the setback the GOP will suffer if President Obama wins a second term. Assuming its not struck down by the Supreme Court, ObamaCare will be on the books until 2017, and probably forevermore. No matter how unpopular now, it will eventually become part of the permanent architecture of the welfare state, as unmovable as almost every other entitlement. It wont be long before Republicans are couching their criticisms of the program in terms of saving it. The repeal movement will eventually feel as dated as opposition to the creation of Medicare. If Republicans hold the House and at least a substantial minority in the Senate, the presidents ability to pass major new programs will be limited. But the debate over the Health and Human Services contraception mandate demonstrates the power and discretion attendant to controlling the executive branch. The administration came up with the rule mandating coverage with no exemption for religious institutions all on its own. What could congressional Republicans do to stop it? Nothing. This is a theme. What could congressional Republicans do to stop the auto bailouts? Nothing. The Libya War? Nothing. The Federal Reserves quantitative easing? Nothing. They objected to the administrations dithering on the Keystone Pipeline, so they included a requirement that President Obama make a decision in an unrelated piece of must-pass legislation. He escaped this clever trap by rejecting the pipeline. This is the tale of congressional frustration when Republicans have been united. Theres no guarantee that they will remain so if their numbers diminish next year and if their standing with the public remains low. President Obama will presumably replace the liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who will be 80 in 2013, with another liberal who will serve for another 30 years. If Justice Anthony Kennedy or Justice Antonin Scalia steps aside (both born in 1936), he gets the opportunity to shift the balance of the court for decades. The downbeat musings on the right are driven by the dreary primary season and the belief that the partys nominee will be weak. But so is the president, who leads likely nominee Mitt Romney only narr owly even after his season of self-inflicted wounds. For Republicans, the general election is still winnable, and there is no substitute for victory. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 Dwight Brock is serving his fifth consecutive four-year term as the clerk of the circuit court of Collier County. As a licensed attorney at law in Florida and a CPA, he is uniquely qualified for his duties as the accountant, auditor, keeper of public records (court, land and financial) and watchdog of public funds for Collier County. Each year, Dwight speaks to dozens of homeowner, civic and community groups to explain the role and responsibilities of his office and to answer questions from the public. He also leads several free seminars for the public every year about various topics, from evicting tenants to filing a small claims case. His most popular seminar is Searching Public Records Using CollierClerk.com. He also commissioned the design of a curriculum for the Collier County School District to help students understand more about local government and the role of the county clerk, and he volunteers his time to work with students at the Ave Maria Law School. A 1975 graduate of Florida State University, he earned an MBA from Stetson University in 1979 and a juris doctorate from Nova Law Center in 1982. Prior to serving as clerk, Dwight was assistant state attorney for 10 years in the 20th Judicial Circuit, where he was involved in several notable cases, including the Steven Benson pipe bomb murder in the mid-1980s. In that case, Margaret Benson, 63, was sitting in her Chevy Suburban in the driveway of her Quail Creek home when a pipe bomb exploded between the front seats, killing her and her adopted son, Scott, 21. A daughter, Carol Lynn Benson Kendall, 42, was severely burned by the explosion of a second pipe bomb moments later. The other son, Steven Benson, 34, wasnt scratched as he watched from near the entrance to the familys home. He offered no assistance and eventually was convicted of the crimes. As an expert in white-collar crime, Dwights work on the case involved determining the Steven Bensons motives through reviewing records of the familys millions of dollars. Dwight was born in the Florida Panhandle and grew up in the small town of Vernon, where he still owns a family farm. When time allows, he returns there to farm, hunt and enjoy the simplicities of small-town life. He and his wife, Cheryl, and son, Bradley, reside in Naples. About to graduate from Gulf Coast High School, Bradley is an Eagle Scout and a member of his schools marching band and swim team. He was recently named to the Speedo National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches of America Academic All-American Team. Its easy to see why his father is so proud. Now back to Dwights official duties, of which he is also proud (and rightfully PROFILES IN PARADISEA steadfast custodian of Collier County funds i w i m M C Q bobHARDEN e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Talking points with Dwight BrockSomething thats been on your mind: Why government seems to want to control everything.

It was his steadfast determination to protect the publics right to know how tax dollars were being spent in Collier County that led to the recent Florida court ruling affirming the clerks role in maintaining a system of checks and balances in local government. When the Collier County Commission challenged the clerks power to audit contracts and financial transactions in the county government, Dwight challenged back. After a lengthy legal battle (at a cost of about $5 million to county taxpayers) the Second District Court of Appeals affirmed the clerks role as auditor and custodian of all county funds. As a strong supporter of transparency and accountability in local, state and federal government, I appreciate Dwight Brocks tenacity in maintaining that for us on the Paradise Coast.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 addict and kill people who often acquire them illegally. To others, her businesses offer legitimate relief from chronic pain that most people cant fathom. Whos right? Here, Florida Weekly provides the information that will let you decide. One thing is certain: Addiction to legal pain medications now places costly, sometimes tragic burdens on every community. These days, Ms. Touheys staff numbers about 65 statewide, including physicians assistants, nurses and as many as 15 licensed doctors, she says. Her clinics one each in Orange, Charlotte and Palm Beach counties, and two each in Lee and Dade operate on a cash-only basis. In her eyes, that represents an egalitarian ideal. Its a virtue, not a vice. Insurance is not required to be a patient here, Ms. Touhey explains. Health care should not just be for people who are insured or can afford it, it has to be available to everyone. That is, everyone who can pay $250 or so typically the going price for visits to cash-only clinics unless first-time or coupon deals are available, say those who visit or manage them. But cash only (or cash mostly) is a red flag for law enforcement investigators and pharmacists required by new laws to question many prescriptions for opioids, they say. Opioids are narcotic pain relievers, a family of drugs closely related to heroin and including such legal variations as morphine, methadone and oxycodone. The most popular, oxycodone, was created in the early 1900s and primarily used as an alternative to morphine for treating terminal patients and to relieve pain for the first few days after surgery. Although prescriptions for opioids may be legal, so-called doctor shoppers and others develop illegal strategies to multiply their pain-med purchases and sell the drugs on the street, police investigations show. Thats led to an epidemic more destructive than the crack-cocaine plague of the 1980s and s, more deadly in its annual body count than traffic accidents by about twice, and much more dangerous and widespread than the use of any strictly illegal drugs. This is pervasive, its in all levels of society, every socio-economic level, every race, both sexes, everywhere, says Lt. Harold Minch, head of narcotics and vice investigations in the Collier County Sheriffs Office. Heres how we have experienced it through our lens as a detoxification program, explains Alex Garcia-Barbon, detox program director at Southwest Florida Addiction Services, which takes patients from several counties: Two to three years ago, the majority of our patients would have been alcohol patients, 45 and over. Today about 75 percent of our patients are opiate patients. And the age group has decreased. Now, the majority of patients are between 19 and 34. One perfectly legal painkilling opiate in particular, oxycodone, is responsible for more deaths than alcohol, cocaine and heroin combined, according to the state medical examiner and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Mr. Garcia-Barbon outlines the breadth of the problem in a few simple numbers: 72 percent of the 1,565 patients his agency treated last year were opiate abusers or addicts, he says. About 86 percent of those relied on oxycodone that appears in several brand-name drugs, 12 percent relied on heroin, 1 percent on methadone and 1 percent on other prescriptions such as vicodin or percocet. Lee Memorial Health Systems, meanwhile, has seen a 682 percent increase in opiate users in the last three years, he says.The big surpriseFor cops on the street and for everybody else, it all came as a big surprise. Right now in Florida its as close to an epidemic as (weve had) since the early 1990s, when crack was dominant, says Lee Sheriffs Capt. Matt LaClair. I never thought crack would be replaced. But even a couple of years ago on the street, (we) didnt know how bad it was. For your undercover guys now, its easier to buy pills than cocaine. The epidemic arrived almost unseen. And it hit hard. In a single year between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010, about 1,400 people in Florida died with oxycodone in their systems, usually in combination with other drugs or alcohol, according to the state medical examiner. The cause of death for 8,653 of the 171,300 Floridians who died that year was listed as drugs, with pain medications playing the most prominent role. In 2006, the Lee Sheriffs Office had one detective working the problem, says Major Jim Jones. Now we have five detectives, a sergeant and an analyst because its become such an epidemic. If you have a bag of weed, thats pretty easy for us. If you have a scrip drug and a scrip (slang for prescription), thats not so easy. So investigations take many months and crimes are not easy to prove. That makes it no less an epidemic. The beefing up of law enforcement, along with recent local ordinances prohibiting the opening of new pain-med clinics owned by people who arent doctors and a new state law requiring all pharmacists to track prescription requests for pain medications in a statewide database, is having some effect. The street price has jumped from about $10 per pill to about $25 a pill, police say. Thus, a prescription of 250 easily obtained pills containing oxycodone, for example, can be worth $6,250 in illegal sales. Those sales happen not only on the rough streets, but in the whitecollar workplace, in the fancy restaurant and the dive bar, in the neighborhood and at school.The other side of the coinBut Ms. Touhey and others who own pain management clinics insist their businesses are essential, not only because they help many people who legitimately and often desperately need relief, but because they dont require insurance for treatment. For example, we have a large Medicaid base, but Medicaid doesnt pay for pain management, she says. (The state program helps low-income pregnant women and children, those over 65, and the blind, disabled, and nursing-home needy.) So how are those people going to get the help they need? Theyll get it by paying cash for the drugs that work. Her clinics and others in the region that supply the chronic pain market there were 28 total in Lee, 10 in Collier County and eight in Charlotte as of about 15 months ago, state officials say rely heavily on opioids such as oxycodone. Six of the nations 100 doctors who prescribed the most oxycodone in 2010 were living in Southwest Florida, and 98 of the top 100 were living in the state itself, according to figures provided by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. One of them, Dr. Anthony Posca, began working last July at Ms. Touheys Bonita Springs clinic, Southwest Florida Medical Solutions. He was arrested in October and indicted with six other doctors on federal charges that included drug conspiracy, distributing oxycodone that lead to death in a patient, and money laundering, all in Jacksonville pain management clinics. There, the indictment showed, doctors were taking in as much as $12,000 per week. She knew nothing of his behavior or habits when she hired him, Ms. Touhey told daily newspapers, and she fired him when she learned of the arrest. Although some doctors behave unethically, Ms. Touhey admits, most do a great deal of good. Patients come in, fill out a medical history, have a physical, allow a doctor to determine their needs and their risk of addiction, and then get a prescription for pain. Her doctors refer any patients who fall into a routine of abuse or addiction to such treatment centers as The Willough or the David Lawrence Center in Naples, Ms. Touhey says. But the legitimate need remains huge, she adds. We treat trauma cases. We have patients who have been attacked, patients who have deteriorating bone diseases, and the bone structure wont support their bodyweight any longer. We have all kinds of amputees. One of our patients is a man with both of his legs cut off below the hip another man carries him in here. We treat HIV and AIDs pain. Gunshots. Indeed, the question of what constitutes pain is frequently arbitrary, says Mr. Garcia-Barbon at Southwest Florida Addiction Services. The main issue here is that no one can determine if youre in pain or not. The person really hurting is that patient with legitimate pain.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 NEWS A9 going to the pharmacy, and some pharmacies are not filling oxycodone even when its prescribed. So that patient is not able to get it, because of how much its being abused. Ms. Touheys clinics support every law enforcement effort made to curtail the illegal sale of prescribed drugs, she notes, adding that the new laws and stricter enforcement should have happened a long time ago. Nevertheless, she insists, These people need their medications. It might be for six months, it might be for two years. But the pain medications allow them to work, and to carry on their lives.The Paul Sloan viewPaul Sloan ardently and aggressively agrees. Mr. Sloan is one of the most vocal defenders of pain management clinics that, he insists, follow all the rules and help police enforce them. Like Ms. Touhey, he is also an entrepreneur. As he recounts the story, while looking for a new business opportunity about six years ago, he went to supper with a doctor friend one evening and asked his advice. The doctor encouraged him to open a pain management clinic. I cant own a pain management clinic, Im not a medical professional, I told him. Yes, you can, he told me. So he did. Now he owns two one in Sarasota and one in Fort Myers and he employs licensed doctors for each, he says. To defend the reputation of his increasingly disreputable line of work, Mr. Sloan also founded a Tallahasseebased lobbying organization, the Florida Society of Pain Management Providers. Pain clinics, he argues, are now subject to a witch hunt by two groups, both of them positioned to make a great deal of money from the persecution of legitimate pain management businesses. First, he points to about 250 doctors in the state who make their professions managing pain. Those doctors, he claims, dont want competition from other doctors getting into the business, and they sit on professional boards that hear complaints of abuse by other doctors. Then they recommend taking away their licenses to practice medicine. And second, he fingers the entire law enforcement community from the attorney general on down, whose war on drugs, in particular on opioids that are legal, allows agencies to beef up budgets, bring in new staff, purchase new equipment, and carry on like a growing corporation, while simultaneously ignoring the rights of patients to relieve pain, he says. There is a problem with addiction to opioids, but its small in the scheme of things. And its been blown up and based on false statistics, Mr. Sloan argues. They cherry-pick their numbers. You have 75 people a day die from smoking. You have 17 die from alcohol abuse everyday. Based on what I consider to be false science, they say there are seven a day dying from prescription drug abuse. In fact, the FDLE doubles that figure, putting it at 13.5 per day. I dont know any socially redeeming factors for alcohol and cigarettes, Mr. Sloan says. But these (pain med) prescriptions are the difference between life and terrible suffering or death for many people. The false science in the official figures, he theorizes, has to do with the fact that evidence of prescription drugs that might not have been used in months gets into the fatty tissues of a body and begins to break down as soon as death occurs, which means it gets identified in coroners reports and sometimes cited as a cause. (Police investigators, on the other hand, say evidence of opioid abuse in a corpse sometimes dissipates too quickly to be counted as a cause, so the death rate from oxycodone and other drugs may actually be higher than the numbers show.) Solving the big problem of abuse and addiction will require taking away the demand for the drug, not the supply, and that can be done by moving money from the war on drugs to education, and by teaching young people the risks. Or by pouring that money into treatment and detoxification centers, Mr. Sloan suggests.Whos at faultLaudable as that may be in the opinions of some, for others law enforcement officials and doctors who see the downside of pain management using opiate-based drugs Ms. Touhey and Mr. Sloan, no matter how legitimate their businesses, remain part of the problem, not part of the solution to an epidemic that destroys lives and kills people. But whos at fault depends on whos doing the faulting. Some Lee Countys Major Jones for example blame individuals who buy the drugs in the first place. But many others, including several of his own detectives, blame doctors and pharmacists lured by easy cash men or women who use their scrip pads as cash machines, in the words of Lt. Chris Reeves, an investigator in the Lee County Sheriffs Office. But all of them agree on one thing: the question always comes down to personal responsibility and personal ethics, except for hard addicts, who have lost their souls to need and therefore have no sense of either. Its about doctors willing to hand this stuff out just to make money theyre just drug dealers wearing lab coats. Hippocrates would be rolling over in his grave, insists Lt. Minch in Collier County. Many doctors and pharmacists agree with that unflattering assessment of a few of their peers: They bemoan the fact that narcotics prescribed for longterm pain relief often doom patients to continued suffering, without addressing the root causes of their pain. Youve had unscrupulous doctors masquerading as pain management doctors who were prescribing meds to patients with addiction problems for cash remuneration, says Dr. Jonathan Daitch, a partner in Advanced Pain Management and Spine Specialists in Fort Myers, and an outspoken critic of cash-only clinics and those he deems frivolous. Thats what this all boils down to.Tragic endings, formidable struggles In the minds of many, it also boils down to betrayal and terrible suffering. It boils down to shattered lives, broken families and endless subterfuge, not to mention crimes committed by addicts who require increasing quantities of an opioid as they struggle to meet hundreds-of-dollars-per-day habits. And it boils down to mortality. Oxycodone, usually used with other drugs or alcohol, killed 36 percent of Floridians who died from legal pain medications in 2010, according to the FDLE and the state Medical Examiner. By comparison, methadone (with or without other drugs) killed 35 percent, hydrocordone used with other substances killed 17 percent and morphine killed 12 percent of those who died with opiate-based drugs in their systems, according to the official statistics. But those stiff numbers fail to show the suffering that goes along with the dying, not only for addicts but for people who love them. We went out the night before to a couple of bars, we were hanging out, then it was 3 a.m. and I was back at our place cooking everyone food, recalls Katie Ley, a 28-year-old opioid addict now in a detoxification program at Southwest Florida Addiction Services. That was the life she and her boyfriend had become accustomed to at the time. Finally we went to bed. At about 8 a.m. we woke up and I looked at my boyfriend lying beside me and he was blue. And blood was coming out of his mouth and nose. Her boyfriend was not only blue, he was dead. She and her roommate were taken into custody, questioned by police, and released. We were mixing alcohol and pills and you know its bad but I was too busy worrying about myself to worry about anyone else. And when he died, that just made me use more. I would get messed up so I wouldnt have to think about it, she recounts grimly now, sitting in a room near Rosemary Boisvert, managing director of the transitional living center at the facility. Mrs. Boisvert understands intimately. Her two sons, Bret and Jay, were also addicts lying to the family, struggling When oxycodone kills addicts, it usually does so in tandem with other drugs such as Xanax or alcohol. But whether or not it proves fatal, as an opioid it significantly and destructively alters brain function, explains Bob Long. Mr. Long, with Dr. Raymond Johnson, a psychiatrist, manages Nova Medical, a Southwest Florida detox practice that helps addicts stop using opioids such as oxycodone, methadone or heroin. Here Mr. Long describes opioid addiction in a nutshell. We have billions of pleasure receptors in our brain. A molecule of oxycodone goes into a receptor and bonds and releases to that receptor at a rate of about 4,000 times per second, according to medical research. That constant bonding and releasing over time beats that receptor down until a person needs more and more just to feel normal. So its not unusual for some people we treat here to be taking as many as 30 oxys a day thats between 300 and 900 milligrams, which could kill a healthy person. The drug becomes the only thing addicts can think about. Besides that, it ruins your gastrointestinal system, your immune system breaks down because you cant absorb nutrients, of course it damages your liver, and it can slow down your breathing, he explains. Thats why people die sometimes they just forget to breathe. Especially if they mix it with benzodiazepines like Xanax. That intensifies the danger, because those drugs also slow down respiration. Dr. Johnson, like some other doctors working to beat opioid addictions with patients, uses a class 3 opioid called suboxone. By comparison to oxycodone, it bonds to and releases from pleasure receptors in the brain about once every eight minutes, instead of 4,000 times a second. Therefore, when patients start using it, they dont need to increase doses. On the contrary, they can decrease them over time. Most people cant do this alone, they cant quit cold turkey especially if theyve been using oxycodone for more than a year, because they become so violently ill, Mr. Long explains. Its a terrible thing to see suffering on a level most of us have never experienced. How oxycodone assaults the minds and bodies of addicts New laws for a new epidemicPushers 1, Cops Zip. In almost eight months since the police agencies from seven counties joined forces to stop pill mills pain management clinics whose doctors prescribe massive quantities of opiate-based drugs with few questions asked to streams of patients who then sell them on the street illegally not a single case has been brought to court in the 20th Judicial Circuit of Southwest Florida. But the games not over. Following Gov. Rick Scotts approval of a pill mill bill (House Bill 7095) last June, police agencies from Charlotte, Collier, Lee, Hendry, DeSoto, Sarasota and Manatee counties now share $3 million for overtime, joint planning, and other costs required to bust bad guys. The scoreboard re ects a signi cant fact in the ght against pill mills: cases require months, if not years, of undercover buys, digging through data and old-fashioned gumshoeing to make charges stick. While investigators continue to work the problem, theyre zealously enforcing the doctorshopping bill approved by former Gov. Charlie Crist in 2008. That one spotlights buyers and users, not sellers. Hardly a day goes by without another mug shot of alleged doctor shoppers appearing on the monitors of the news-consuming Southwest Florida public. The strategy attacks the problem from the demand side of the economic equation, snaring users and charging them with what is now a felony visiting various doctors and/or lying to obtain prescriptions. Trapping a ringleaderOne thoroughfare in the Oxycontin Express (the dubious nickname given to Florida) ran straight out of Cape Coral, through Fort Myers and up to Worcester, Mass. Thats where Chad Barrie Currie would ship about 10,000 pills a month in 2010, earning between $18,000-$20,000 in cash for each delivery. According to a Lee County sheriffs investigator, Mr. Currie had about 30 people doctorshopping for him on the states east coast. When authorities searched his home, they found dozens of bottles lled with OxyContin, Xanax, methadone, Vicodin and Lorcet. He pled no contest and is scheduled to be released from prison in 2018.

One night four years ago, it all went south. They were using together that night it was on the 24th of January and the next morning Bret woke up and Jay did not. He died of his prescription medication. Families need to understand how bad it is, how much this hurts. At that point, I was almost grateful because Jay wasnt chasing the devil anymore. Every waking moment it was, How am I going to get that drug, who will I lie to or steal from today? The cheating lifestyle is totally enmeshed with the drug culture. The sad thing is, its the family who remains that has to remember the birthdays, the Christmases, the special days, the songs, the smells, the certain cookies he liked to eat. It took me years before I was even able to speak as I am now. She tells her own story, the parents story, from a conviction that the truth will free the tortured soul, she explains.I bring it right into my patients. Ill say it: Do I miss him? Yes. Every single day.And there is no happy ending. Her surviving son remains an addict, she says. For Mrs. Boisvert, saving her children has proven impossible. But helping others to save themselves is possible. Its something she can do, so she does.One long, low-down, lousy roadGeorge Jones, another addict at SWFAS who is moving through detox and the transitional living center for the third time, says that addicts must want to save themselves before anyone else can help save them. You cant do it for your parents or your girlfriend or your children. It has to be for yourself, he says. And while hes trying to do that now, the cost has been steep. At 28, Mr. Jones has been in prison twice, he helped addict his girlfriend, the love of my life, to opioids and then put her on the street as a prostitute to help pay for their habits (she remains on the street as far as he knows), and he lost his three children. At one point, when her mother had taken custody of two of their children but he and his girlfriend were still living with one son, We had no job, we were robbing and stealing to get the money. We were out of control, he admits. That all started with cigarettes at age 12, then progressed to marijuana and ecstasy, first only on the weekends and then more frequently, Mr. Jones says. Then he began doing cocaine and Xanax. Finally as a late teenager he discovered the opioids, including oxycodone. It took him a couple of years to discover hed found his drug of choice, he remembers now. You get that uppity speedy thing like cocaine, but it relaxes you and youre everything you want to be, he explains, trying to describe what the appeal is. For me, thats what I like about it. I can do it and be able to accomplish things. At first he did it only when he got paid. For a few years he avoided needles, but when he came out of detox the first time at age 25, he injected it because everybody said how good the high was. Originally hed begun taking it by mouth, then snorting it. But finally hed moved into the big leagues, injecting it through an IV. That went on for years as he committed crimes to fund the growing habit. Not to absorb the drug meant being physically sick with nausea and suffering that was like the flu times 10, he says. Its the worst thing youve ever suffered. So you have to find more to be OK. And then twice at the end of last year he almost died, flat-lining at the hospital. Finally, like others, he decided he was through with that life.Changes and solutionsMs. Ley describes the health epiphany some addicts experience when they finally decide to get sober, this way. I just knew: This is not who I am. This is not what I want for my life. Thank God I didnt push it to the point of letting my family completely go. (Her mother is helping pay for her care, while Mr. Jones, who made it to the top of a waiting list as he kept suffering through the end of last year, is receiving public help.)Beating drugs is hard. It goes handin-hand with making changes, Ms. Ley surmises. I had to change everything all the friends, everything. Im so thankful for this opportunity. I moved to the halfway house, I have a job down at the beach, I do daily meditations, reading, I go to (Narcotics Anonymous) meetings, I have a home group involved, I do service work. In contrast to her previous life, its a splendid existence, a life she hopes never to surrender. In the old days, I was throwing up all the time, I couldnt eat or sleep or function. I isolated myself. It was absolute misery. And all of it, or at least much of it, could have been avoided had she not had access to easy-to-get opioids designed for cancer patients in the first place, suggests Dr. Daitch. Thats the fault of doctors who use their scrip pads as cash machines. We dont write for the high-dose stuff, he says of his own practice. When people come to us on (high doses of) pain meds, we actually detox them. We have them on suboxone. We have found a solution to this. Suboxone and care may be immediate solutions, but the ultimate solution is doing the right thing as a doctor, he says. Continuing high doses of pain medications is not doing the right thing. Youre not treating the pain, youre treating their withdrawal symptoms. When theyre off the meds, theres a spike in their pain because its withdrawal. So how much is too much? Thats not as hard a question as some doctors like to make it sound, he argues. Anything more than 80 mg of percocet per day is a high dose. Nobody needs that much pain medicine. But many are given it anyway. Result? You have all these young people in their 20s and 30s who are hooked on it. You have, in short, an epidemic. PAINFrom page 9

Phallic aim determines harvestAn annual spring fertility festival in Vietnams Phu Tho province is capped by a symbolic X-rated ceremony rendered G-rated by wooden stand-ins. At midnight on the 12th day of the lunar new year, a man holding a wooden phallus-like object stands in total darkness alongside a woman holding a wooden plank with a hole in it, and the act is attempted. As the tradition goes, if the man is successful at penetration, then there will be good crops. Following the ceremony, villagers are ordered to go and be free, which, according to a February report by Thanh Nien News Service, means uninhibited friskiness during the lights-out period. Cultural diversity In the remote state of Meghalaya, India, a matrilineal system endows the women with wealth and property rights and relegates the men to slow-moving campaigns for equality. A mens rights advocate, interviewed by BBC News in January, lamented even the languages favoring of women, noting that useful nouns seem all to be female. The system, he said, breeds generations of men who feel useless, falling into alcoholism and drug abuse. In maternity wards, he said, the sound of cheering greets baby girls, and if its a boy, the prevailing sentiment is Whatever God gives us is quite all right. The husband of one woman interviewed said, meekly, that he likes the current system or at least thats what his wifes translation said he said. Each year, the town of Chumbivilcas, Peru, celebrates the new year with what to Americans might seem Festivus-inspired (from the Seinfeld TV show), but is actually drawn from Incan tradition. For Takanakuy, with a background of singing and dancing, all townspeople with grudges from the previous 12 months (men, women, children) settle them with sometimes-bloody fistfights so that they start the new year clean. Said one villager to a Reuters reporter, Everything is solved here, and after(ward) we are all friends. Latest religious messages Prophet Warren Jeffs, of a breakaway Mormon cult, is serving life (plus 20 years) in a Texas prison for raping two underage parishioners, but insists that his power has not been diminished. He was disciplined in December for making a phone call to his congregation announcing several decrees, including barring marriages from taking place until he can return to seal them and prohibiting everyone from having sex. (Since Mr. Jeffs retains his messiah status among many church members, and since life-plus-20 is a long time to wait, and since the cult is reclusive, it is difficult for outsiders to assess the level of sexual frustration in the compound.) Recovering alcoholic Ryan Brown recently moved his licensed tattoo parlor into The Bridge church in Flint Township, Mich., which is one more indicator of Rev. Steve Bentleys nontraditional belief that mainstream religion had become irrelevant to most people. Tattooing is a morally neutral practice, Rev. Bentley said, although Mr. Brown, of course, does not ink tattoos lauding drugs, gangs or the devil. (The Bridge has also loaned out its plentiful floor space in a shopping mall to wrestling, cage fighting and auto repair facilities.) Questionable judgments According to a municipal street sign in front of Lakewood Elementary School in White Lake, Mich. (filmed in February by Detroits WJBK-TV), the speed limit drops to 25 mph on school days only, but just from :49-7:15 a.m., 7:52-8:22 a.m., 8:37-9:07 a.m., 2:03-2:33 p.m., 3:04-3:34 p.m. (and) 3:59-4:29 p.m. Jack Taylor, 18, of Worcester, England, was given a lenient sentence in January for an August burglary he admitted. He and another youth had tried to steal a residents motorcycle but damaged it in the process. Since he was remorseful, made restitution, observed a curfew and did community service, he was released by the judge when he secured full-time employment. (However, the employment, the court later learned, was as a slaughterman in Norway, where he was to take part in the culling of Alaskan baby seals.)

We are grateful for the support of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts and the wonderful live Golden Apple awards ceremonies we have had there, and look forward to working together to create new opportunities for students and teachers. In addition to the Suncoast for Kids Foundation, others helping to make the Golden Apple program and celebration event possible are the Mary Ingram Fund of the Columbus Foundation, Naples Daily News and WINK-TV. The Golden Apple teachers, Golden Apple Teachers of Distinction and Collier County Public Schools Teachers of the Year will be honored on April 11 along with the 2012 Heart of the Apple Award recipients, Herb and Ann Rowe. The Heart of the Apple award recognizes individuals who have made a significant impact on education in the Collier County community. Mr. and Mrs. Rowe have a passion and commitment to education and the students in Collier County. By generously giving thousands of volunteer hours and financial support for the work of the Education Foundation, they help our teachers ensure that every child can get a good education. WINK-TV will produce a Golden Apple program that will air on May 5 and 13 near Teacher Appreciation Week. Greg Pasanen of Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union delivers a Golden Apple to Eileen Schoenknecht of Lorenzo Walker Institute of Technology. Bill was a freshman at college when he experimented with drugs and experienced a terrifying psychotic break. He believed the whole world even his family was against him. His distraught parents turned to the David Lawrence Center Crisis Stabilization Unit where he was kept safe and medically supervised. Bill spent the next two years working with a psychiatrist and therapist to identify and cope with these damaging thoughts so he could return to his studies. As he nears graduation, Bills relationship with his family has never been stronger and his future holds endless opportunities.Bill is among one in four in Collier County who suffer from a mental illness. One in nine of us will experience some form of substance abuse. When a family member, friend or coworker battles a mental health or substance abuse problem, we suffer with them. Thankfully, David Lawrence Center is here for our community. A not-for-prot organization founded and still governed by community leaders, the David Lawrence Center is the behavioral health component of our communitys healthcare network. A true local resource, it relies on donations, fees and grants to invest in the health, safety and wellbeing of our community. When you or someone you love needs help, call on the highly compassionate, committed and competent professionals of the David Lawrence Center to inspire you to move beyond the crisis towards life-changing wellness. Mental health is a community issue. Fortunately, theres a community solution. His Mind is Our Concern. DavidLawrenceCenter.org NAPLES 239-455-8500 IMMOKALEE 239-657-4434

The biggest thing I would hope our community can learn is that hospice care is such a great service for the family and not just the patient. Its an interdisciplinary team approach, not just a single provider, Ms. Jonsson says. She adds that although many people think hospice is a national organization, in reality, each is independently run. Avow Hospice has been in Collier County for 29 years. In 2011, it served 1,700 people with hospice care and provided more than 1,000 hours of counseling services. Annually, Avow produces story-based and instructional commercials with the help of Priority Marketing. The commercials are written by members of the Avow Hospice advancement team, which includes Ms. Jonsson, Chief Advancement Officer Karen Stevenson and Director of Strategic Communications Kit Chamberlain. Typically, only staff members appear in the commercials. This year, however, Ms. Jonsson reached out to The Naples Players and found actors to volunteer their services, in addition to staff members who also participated. Carol Fox, who has appeared in several TNP productions, was quick to respond. I had only done live theater, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to participate in a commercial, she says. And even though I didnt know that much about the services of Avow, I had many friends who had told me really good things about them. Ironically, during the time she was filming the commercial, her father was suffering with dementia. He died in January. Ms. Foxs experience with Avow was now something she could relate to and rely on. I learned about the caregiver retreats for people whose parents or family members have dementia, and I attended one that was really helpful to me, she says. She learned about the different stages of dementia, how to deal with a loved one suffering from dementia, and how to make a conversation with that person easier. It helped me understand more about what the illness was like and how he must be feeling. It made it easier to talk to him. Ms. Fox says the experience working on the Avow commercial helped prepare her for what she had to face when her father was in hospice for a week in Tennessee. It made me much more appreciative of what the hospice workers did for us in those last days of my dads life. I cant say enough good things about their services. She now also feels like a spokesperson for Avow. People relate to the commercials because they are real-life situations. A lot of people ask me now about Avow. I feel very honored to have been in one of their commercials. Avows award-winning commercials are: Mom at the Beach about hospice care for dementia patients earned a platinum award. Pet Loss about grief support for the loss of a pet earned a gold award. My Hospice Chaplain focused on hospice spiritual support also earned a gold award. COPD addressed on hospice care for COPD patients earned an honorable mention. They can be viewed at http://avowhospice.org/get-information/video-gallery/.

The health care community rallies around a woman with breast cancer Every day, I hear stories of how we go above and beyond to help each other. One of the most recent came from Lynn Hurley, RN and certified breast health navigator. Heres how she told it: The patient is 62, never married. She came to the ER with shortness of breath. Her diagnosis was a blood clot. Upon assessment, the ER doctor found her to have an inflamed breast. He consulted Dr. David Lamon, who assessed her and felt she had an aggressive breast cancer. The patient said it had been growing for a year. She confided in Dr. Lamon that she had lost her job at a local department store, had no insurance and was about to be evicted. She was suffering with multiple medical conditions as well as depression. She said she had no way to pay for treatment and was not going to pursue a diagnosis. An intelligent woman, she was overwhelmed by the situation. Dr. Lamon asked her if he could contact our breast health navigator to talk about resources available to help her. She agreed. Dr. Lamon called me, and I explained to the patient about our comprehensive breast health program and our relationship with Susan G. Komen for the Cure and other community resources. The NCH case manager was wonderful and got the woman approved for Medicaid. After speaking with me, the patient agreed to let Dr. Lamon biopsy the breast. His suspicions were true; the woman had breast cancer. The cancer was aggressive, and she was referred to Dr. Lillian Love for chemotherapy before surgery. She was in the hospital for two weeks, during which she was, indeed, evicted from her home. I contacted a friend who packed her belongings. Cancer Alliance of Naples, a grantee of Komen, provides help with housing expenses. I had the patient fill out an application and I took it to CAN, which approved her for assistance. Now we needed to find her housing. I spoke to a wonderful friend who rents out a beautiful Park Shore condo during season. Her tenant was not due to arrive for two months. My friend gets $3,500 per month for it but agreed to let CAN rent it for $750 per month, all utilities free. So when the patient was discharged from the hospital on a Saturday in early November, she had no idea where she was going to be living. Saturday is my day off, and I picked her up and took her to her new temporary home. Her friend had set up her personal belongings, and healing could begin. This woman was so grateful and humbled by all the love and support. Now she has only one chemo treatment left and then she will be ready for surgery. She is doing wonderfully. Her story proves that when you have a great hospital, great surgeons, great oncologists, an administration that sees the value of the breast health navigator, community resources such as Komen and CAN together we can and do make a tremendous difference in the lives of women diagnosed with breast cancer. There is little I can add to Lynns wonderful story but thanks. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System. w w g l t t allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org Sparking production of a hormone in the brain that people with epilepsy often lack could prevent debilitating seizures, University of Florida researchers have discovered. The researchers used gene therapy in rats to stimulate production of somatostatin, a seizure-stopping chemical that naturally occurs in the brain. The study was published in the February issue of the journal Neuroscience Letters. More than 3 million people in the United States have epilepsy, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The lifelong disease is characterized by uncontrollable seizures and can keep people from living independently or holding jobs, particularly if they do not respond to seizure-controlling medication. Finding novel ways to prevent these seizures could help people with epilepsy live more normal, symptom-free lives, says Dr. Paul Carney, chief of the division of neurology in the UF College of Medicine department of pediatrics and senior author of the study. For years people have focused only on treating the disease, not preventing the disease, Dr. Carney says. The mantra is no seizures, no side effects. People with epilepsy tend to have lower levels of the hormone somatostatin, as do people with Alzheimers disease. Although somatostatin is present in the brains of people with epilepsy, scientists have shown that its levels decrease during seizures, said Rabia Zafar, the lead author of the paper and a former postdoctoral associate in Dr. Carneys lab. To test whether they could prevent seizures by bolstering levels of this hormone, the researchers administered a dose of the gene that triggers somatostatin expression. A harmless virus transported the gene safely through the body. There is some somatostatin in the brain anyway, because its a neuropeptide, but there was a dramatic increase after the injection, Ms. Zafar says. Boosting somatostatin levels led to weaker and shorter seizures, and none of the subjects that received the injection suffered the highest level of seizure. Better yet, the treatment did not result in unwanted side effects. The only side effect was positive: Subjects learned better after the treatment. Being able to restore somatostatin up to normal levels allows the brain to heal itself and that is the idea here, Dr. Carney says. Were putting something back in that is normally there and allowing the brain to pick it up as part of its normal machinery. Were not putting in a drug. In addition to epilepsy, studies have shown that somatostatin may play a role in aging and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimers disease, Dr. Carney adds.

In Collier County, there are countless opportunities for charitable giving each season. As the CEO of Physicians Regional Healthcare System, a part of the Health Management Associates family, I am extremely proud of our efforts toward many deserving groups in our community. We participate in the Friends of Foster Children of Collier Countys Immokalee Child Care Center gift giving program as well as sponsor a holiday food drive for St. Matthews House. Associates take time on the weekends to help build homes with Habitat for Humanity and volunteer with the Liberty Youth Ranch. Our Collier Boulevard campus donates pediatric dentistry services to the NCEF Pediatric Dental Program and has completed more than 450 procedures in the past three years. Though it has been reported that HMA recently donated $10,000 to Mike Davis Elementary School, its less known that our staff has taken on the additional responsibility of establishing an ongoing volunteer program to add even more value to the education of students attending the school. I work every day with the extraordinary team at Physicians Regional Healthcare System, and their generosity never comes as a surprise to me. Recently, when I asked around to see just how involved our team was in giving outside of the hospital setting, the sheer volume of stories reflecting care and compassion was delightful. Nurse Janice Feenstra has taken it upon herself to collect coats, sweatshirts and blankets for children in need at Manatee Middle School. Our patient advocate, Brenda Poczatek, serves on the board of directors for the Childrens Home Society, which focuses on preventing child abuse and neglect. As a member of HOTFLASHZ, a nonprofit dance team for women, Valerie Boyko, who works in our microbiology department, supports many charities, including Camp Boggy Creek for seriously and terminally ill children. Dr. Craig Eichler, Dr. Jay Roberts and Chief Nursing Officer Carol McConn and many others volunteer their time each year at the Neighborhood Health Clinic to deliver quality medical care to low-income working but uninsured Collier County adults. Amidst the fanfare of the many charitable functions that many of us will attend this year are the very real needs of those who will benefit from our participation, our compassion and our giving giving that comes in the form of time, funds and, most importantly, taking action. Just as the concept of giving thanks should not be limited to Thanksgiving, the act of giving should not be limited to the peak winter season. As any resident of Collier County knows, the needs of our community extend through all 12 months of the year. Each of us has the power to make a difference in someones life. Just take a look at Nicole Mancha, RN, at our Collier Boulevard Womens Center. She and her husband are foster parents for Florida Baptist Childrens Home and are currently fostering two brothers who are 4 months old and 4 years old. Countless members of our team donate their time to causes throughout the year, and I can share but a few of their stories. As I review the impressive list in front of me, however, I realize that although these acts take place outside of our hospital setting, our teams inherent spirit of giving comes to work each day. I see their generosity and compassion reflected in the care they provide to our patients through a giving spirit from their hearts. Todd Lupton is the CEO of Physicians Regional Healthcare System.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA42 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickThe soupy remains of a downpour on the paws of our pets is the constant nemesis of all dog lovers. The best way to keep floors clean is to never let them get dirty. And that means catching those muddy paws before they come inside. Here are some tips: Use mats. Put washable mats both inside and outside the door. A small doormat can be jumped over, so go for something larger, at least during the rainy season. The wider the area of matting, the more chance you have of every paw hitting the mat at least once. Outside the door to my backyard (currently known as The Swamp), I have a 3-foot-by-5-foot black industrial mat I bought at a warehouse store. It catches lots of mud, and it hoses off easily. The more attractive and traditional decorative doormat sits right on top of it, with another decorative mat on the inside of the threshold. Outside the dog door, the entrance ramp is covered with indoor-outdoor carpeting. Just inside is another mat. Teach dogs to wait for wiping. Its not difficult to teach a dog to wait on the mat for a paw cleaning. If youre patient and positive, youll be able to teach your pet to offer each paw in turn and stand patiently while you towel it off. One of my dogs used to be so good about this that hed lift each paw by name: Front. Now the other. Back. Other. Save your old towels. When towels get too ratty for guests to see, save them for use with your pets. Old towels are great for wiping paws, drying fur and even wiping a muddy paw print off the floor. My old towels have endured years of hot water and bleach. Theyre ugly, but they still do the job. You can also find super-absorbent towels and mitts made specifically for wiping paws, but Ive always found old towels to be more than up to the task. If you do need to buy paw wipes, check prices on shop towels. Another option: Shammies, which soak up lots of water, can be thrown in the washing machine and air-dried in a jiffy. Never let a mess settle in. If a muddy paw gets past you, dont delay your cleanup. While this isnt such a hard-and-fast rule for easy-clean surfaces like tile and hardwoods, its an absolute commandment when it comes to carpets. Keep cleaning supplies well stocked and at hand, and be sure to jump on a muddy paw print or any pet mess before it can set. With 16 canine paws in my household, keeping on top of mud is a must. What the mats dont catch, I do, and the house stays cleaner for my diligence, even in the muddiest season of the year. PET TALESCatch it if you canMats and throws make mud easier to deal with With a few simple tricks, you can let in the dog, but leave the mud outside.

B6 Taxing timesFor local tax professionals, lifes two inevitables death and taxes may have been their saving grace during the recession. Wealth and estate management (death), and beginning-ofthe-year tax preparation (taxes), have helped many of Southwest Floridas accounting and tax preparation firms stay afloat during tough economic times. Theyve survived despite an overall decline in clientele as businesses went belly up and families moved away. The tax business is our staple, says Joni Norton, a certified public accountant, financial planner and consulting partner at Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co. in Fort Myers. Some of our clients went out of business so it wasnt like they were going elsewhere to have their taxes done.Company-wide, the firm lost no more than 5 percent of its business during the Accountants emerge stronger after lean yearsSEE TAXING, B4 BY NANCI THEORETSpecial to Florida Weekly Norton
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 MARCH 15-21, 2012 The individual investor, unless affluent and exposed to alternative investing approaches, is very deeply entrenched in fundamental analysis as the foundation for his equity and bond investing. The institutional and wealth investor, while still embracing fundamental analysis for much of his portfolio, has also come to embrace systems trading (computerized algorithmic systems) as a critical element of a portfolios allocation. In fact, 75 percent of NYSE volume is estimated to be traded using systems and 85 percent of the largest Commodity Trading Advisors (over $320 billion assets under management) are systems based (2011 TED Concordia conference, Yan Ohayon, The Impact of Algorithmic Trading and Barclay Hedge CTA data). While individual investors often approaches systems trading with a case closed attitude (because you cant trust a black box of computerized trades), they are really denying the elephant in the worlds largest investment room. This column will take a broad brush look at the differences between the two polarized approaches and offer some suggestions why systems trading is perceived as investing voodoo to the individual investor, yet mainstream investing to some of the more sophisticated investment professionals. Both approaches should play a role in your portfolio. Fundamental analysis is the examination of a companys financial statements and other qualitative factors, with the end goal being to value the security. One of the most popular styles of fundamental investing is value investing, made famous by Warren Buffett who, over the past 40 years, created gains far in excess of the equity markets returns for his Berkshire Hathaway investors. In doing so, he inspired many to replicate what he did (either by the investor or by the selected manager). Other fundamental investing approaches might focus on macro factors, e.g. economic recoveries and how certain industries and companies will be impacted or earnings momentum analysis. Again, the investor finds appeal in these approaches; dots of investment logic connect and, voila, a rational investment conclusion is reached. Computer screens might be employed but the manager is still driving the process. All of this has emotional and logical appeal to the individual investor as there are facts and reasons and experience and pedigree education and insights and all sorts of good things that should create investment value. Bottom line, these are stories and they captivate the individual investor. But there are other roads that lead to investment success; some of these other roads are becoming increasingly more traveled, even though, at first glance, they seem like dead ends to the individual investor. These alternative paths use algorithmic systems (or math formulas written into code). Systems investing has no sweet, warm and fuzzy story to tell. The truth is, stories about algo systems might help the insomniac. Much of systems investing are trend following, analyzing price to see if price trends are in place and taking a position, long or short, if certain requirements are met. (Not all systems trading are nanoseconds in length or front-running orders, many trading systems are looking to hold positions for weeks or months and many are not trading intensive.) Proprietary rule sets are not disclosed; hence, the systems are called black boxes. But that secret sauce is being bought; some of the largest financial institutions, biggest hedge funds, the majority of the largest commodity managers who can choose from the cream of manager crops, are increasingly choosing algo strategies. Hmm what makes systems good at investing? Several attributes: nothing is forecasted; no emotions of fear or greed; no vacations, day dreaming or bad hair days; no overriding system rules that will govern the trade; proper sizing of investment positions in portfolios; and, ever so importantly, not letting losses exceed certain dollar limits (e.g. ending the age-old problematic behavior of the individual investor or undisciplined manager who might cut gains short and let losses run.) This is not an indictment of fundamental investing, as I myself embrace it and employ it but not for the entirety of a portfolio. This is a statement that what most individual investors know about investing is through articles, books, and, especially, through investment advisers who are intensely determined to market their fundamental wares. And, just to put both approaches on a level field, ask your manager sometime about his/her rule set for taking losses, for position sizing, for managing the correlations within the portfolio, etc. You might be surprised at the non-answers. Or ask how often he goes on vacation or if he ever gets sick, if he trades on a 23.5 hour clock as these too are very important questions to be answered in a world where the average holding time for stocks on Wall Street has shrunk to a mere 22 seconds (2011 TED conference Concordia). As always recommended, seek the advice of your adviser, consult several advisers and, in areas outside traditional investing, seek the appropriate experts. There is a substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options on futures contracts. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

Many were start-up businesses that didnt survive the crucial oneto five-year maturity period. More of our long-term clients were able to survive, says Ms. Norton. A lot have cash flow issues due to the recession. They have to pay their employees, and guess who didnt get paid? Us. Our receivables are larger than theyve ever been and weve had to get tougher. We tell them they have to pay last years bill first before well do this years taxes. The real estate downturn impacted many local accounting firms, especially those with a large client base of construction companies, realtors and mortgage brokers. Theres nothing you can do when a company declares bankruptcy, says Bill Mattingly, a public accountant in Cape Coral whose smallto mediumsized business specialty included a number of construction-related customers. We have clients who have been struggling and its taking time for them to get caught up paying us. One client has been paying us $50 a month for two years and just made his final payment. Koch Zeman & Walsh, a CPA firm in Punta Gorda, also lost business customers, including some long-time clients, says partner Rex Koch. What happened the past two to four years, I think, is the people here now are the tough ones. They survived, he says. We lost a lot of Realtors, appraisers and mortgage people. They had to learn to do something else. They adapted and so did we. Businesses going out of business, slow and no pays have impacted many local accounting firms, who also had to reduce costs and pound the pavement to attract new business while maintaining current clients Our biggest challenge the last couple of years was cash flow, just like everybody else, says Mr. Mattingly. We were fighting the economy. Employee cutbacks were not an option at Mr. Kochs firm. We have a staff here with a lot of longevity. People who have been here eight to 18 years. Theyre the basis of our business and know the clients, he says. Our big deal was not to cut payroll so we really had to work hard to keep our clientele. As a company, we had to get out there and find new clients. We went to chamber meetings and Realtor meetings and really got out there and hustled. For David Bradach, a CPA in Naples since 1981, most of his business comes from word of mouth. The economy has been so tough, Im just glad people are finding money to pay for tax return preparation, he says.Service focusedLocal firms have adapted to the changing needs of their clients, many struggling to cut expenses or simply survive. CPAs have become advisers and coaches, saving businesses and taxpayers money year-round. We might suggest they go from monthly to quarterly service, says Ms. Norton. We also coach clients to do some things in-house. Its not about the money but helping clients with services. Scott Hennells, a partner at Weibel, Hennells & Carufe in Bonita Springs, oversees the firms audit department, which specializes in financial statements for country clubs, non-profits and a dwindling number of construction companies. Weve done a lot of client training, he says. Theyre learning what weve done for them in the past when they didnt have the time to do it. Now they have more time to do it. It really was a struggle but we all ended up in the same boat, says Mr. Koch. Some said, Hey, were hurting but were going to get out of this. We sat down with them and worked with them and were able to help most though the tough times.ChallengesThe national chains the H&R Blocks, Jackson Hewitts and Liberty Taxes of the world really dont compete with the local firms, particularly those that deal with high net-worth individuals and businesses. Turbo Tax, says Mr. Bradach, has posed more of a challenge to the chains, which are now offering discounts unheard of when Mr. Bradach headed a Jackson Hewitt franchise. They were always searching for ways to hike fees 5 to 15 percent each year, he says. There was no loyalty program for regular clients. Fees were always going up. Ive seen enough of their returns come in here, and my fees are in line or usually lower. I always tell people Im never going to charge more that last years rate unless theyve had a big change so theres no sticker shock. Im a low-overhead business so I make it affordable. Errol Clark, senior tax manager at Weibel, Hennells & Carufe, says his firms fees are also often lower than the national companies, which charge by the form. The Bonita Springs firm, like many, charges by the hour a fee clients can control by coming in prepared. Turbo Tax is good for do-it-yourselfers or people with simple returns, says Mr. Clark. If someone is fee conscious and has the same tax return as last year, they probably dont need my services, says Ms. Norton. Theres a certain personality of a client that likes Turbo Tax. They are into computers and savvy and like the puzzle of doing their tax return. They have a good handle on their finances and understand where things go. Its a wonderful program but you do have to know what youre doing. Technology has helped even small firms like Mr. Mattinglys compete with larger local and national firms. We have access to the tools as the big boys, he says. This increases our service and efficiency. The locals also offer one thing neither Turbo Tax or the national firms dont personalized service tailored to the needs of a business or individual. Unlike the national firms that tend to set up shop temporarily in a bigbox retailer, local companies are here year round although Mr. Bradach jokes that he might not answer calls in August. And theyre not just crunching numbers and filling in the blanks, but likely to find additional savings or help with long-term planning. When working on a return, we often find ways to reduce someones tax liability, says Mr. Clark. Some are simple and common situations. Theyre paying taxes that could have been avoided. These are the types of things we look for; where to save the client money. As a certified financial planner, I can go a step beyond and talk about retirement planning, IRAs and pension plans as Im going through a return, says Ms. Norton. Its not just about putting numbers on the tax return, and were done. Its all about planning and minimizing tax liabilities. The biggest challenge in the tax-prep business is the ever-changing tax laws set by a fickle federal government. We have to know whats happening, whats passing and whats going to pass, says Ms. Norton, whos been in the business 30 years. Before, the law was the law and the law was the same every year. Now nothing seems to pass for more than a year. Just the other day, they changed the rules about paying the IRS in installments. The government can do something in December that will affect the next year, says Mr. Clark. Tax laws are constantly changing and it drives us up the wall. One change for 2011, a requirement that brokerage firms provide costbasis data on 1099-B forms, is already impacting many local taxpayers. Some firms have yet to issue the forms. Some said theyll be getting them out March 15 but our clients are still expected to file by April 17, says Mr. Hennells. About 95 percent of our clients are affected. It creates a compressed tax season and makes it difficult for us. Local tax pros say business tax returns as well as year-round services has been picking up. Mr. Bradachs firm has seen an uptick the last year. You take it on the chin because a lot of people are moving, he says. Ive had more nonCollier County returns this year. People have moved but still use me. Ive done returns from 22 different states so far. Some of his former clients are now returning as self-employed or small corporations performing babysitting, cleaning and lawn services. Theyve lost their jobs so they have to do something. Business is good and were happy, says Mr. Koch. We think things are getting better, and our clients are more optimistic. Even this late in the game corporate and business returns are due Thursday procrastinators can still benefit from the know-how of a local firm, although likely on a delay. If someone comes in today, were going to file an extension, says Mr. Hennells. Individuals have until April 1; after that its highly likely theyre going to have to go on extension. Mr. Clark, his partner, offers this three-prong solution to help individuals and businesses ease those tax-time jitters: For individuals, organization reduces the cost of preparation, he says.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL PepsiCos Balance SheetLong-term investors should study companies balance sheets to see how sturdy the underlying businesses are and whether their financial health is improving or failing. For example, consider PepsiCos balance sheet for the fiscal year that ended on Dec. 31, 2011. We see $4.1 billion in cash and cash equivalents, down from $5.9 billion the previous year. A growing pile of cash is generally preferable. (Some companies have so much cash, though, that it would make sense for them to start paying or increasing dividends.) You usually want to see little or no debt. Between 2010 and 2011, PepsiCos total debt rose 7.5 percent, totaling $27 billion. Thats a sizable level of debt. Still, it generates plenty of cash to meet its obligations. A peek at footnotes in the last annual report reveals debt interest rates mostly below 5.5 percent. Low rates suggest a firm is financing operations effectively. Next up, inventory. PepsiCos grew about 13.5 percent, to $3.8 billion in 2011. RisWhat 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. Lack of InterestQWhat does Islamic investing entail? C.D., Lafayette, IndAJust as socially responsible investing involves avoiding certain kinds of companies, such as those involved in tobacco, guns, alcohol or defense, those who want to invest in accordance with Islamic tenets also screen out certain industries. Companies generally avoided are in industries such as alcohol, gambling, pornography and pork and often weapons, tobacco and media companies, among others. A key principle of Islamic finance is the prohibition against paying or earning interest. Thus, Islamic investors will steer clear of many financial services companies such as banks and insurers. Even nonfinancial companies might be rejected if they receive a significant sum of interest in their income. Alternatively, the investor might donate to charity the portion of earnings that are derived from interest. The avoidance of financial companies served Islam-compliant investors very well during the big credit crisis that sent the stock market down sharply and most financial companies down even more. Shares of Citigroup, for example, plunged 73 percent in 2008, and Bank of America dropped 60 percent. Some other financial giants went out of business entirely. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Citigroup and Bank of America.) You dont have to be Muslim to invest according to Islamic tenets. The Amana family of mutual funds, for example, has a strong performance record and is open to just about anyone. ***QWhat simple books explain how to invest in stocks? K.W., Maryville, Tenn.APeter Lynchs books are great for beginners, and you can also learn a lot at the fool.com and morningstar.com websites. When youre ready to open a brokerage account, visit broker.fool.com and sec.gov/investor/brokers.htm for more info. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Smartest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enriching inventories can indicate unsold products languishing on shelves, but since sales rose 15 percent year-over-year, inventory appears under control. (Ideally, inventory growth shouldnt outpace sales growth.) Its also good to measure inventory turnover, reflecting how many times per year the firm sells out its inventory. Take 2011s cost of goods sold (from the income statement) of $31.6 billion and divide it by the average of 2010 and 2011 inventory ($3.6 billion). This gives us a turnover of 8.8. The higher the number, the better, so rising turnover rates are promising. PepsiCos has been holding steady. Accounts receivable represent money owed to the firm. Ideally, they shouldnt grow faster than sales. PepsiCos rose by 9.3 percent. Shrinking receivables would suggest a company increasingly getting paid on time due to its clout. Youll find balance sheets at most major companies websites, among financial statements in the Investor Relations areas. (The Motley Fool owns shares of PepsiCo, and its newsletter services have recommended shares and options on PepsiCo.) Convertible BondsI dont remember the exact date or the prices, but in the early 1970s, Trans World Airlines (TWA) was on the verge of bankruptcy. There were some TWA convertible bonds for sale at about $230 each. I figured the company would survive and bought 50 of the bonds, and within two years sold them for about $800 each. I lucked out! B.F., via emailThe Fool Responds: Convertible bonds offer yield and the opportunity to convert that debt into stock under certain conditions. For this ability, though, buyers typically accept lower yields. And sometimes these bonds serve the issuer more effectively than the buyer. Convertible bonds can be risky in bankruptcies, too. In a bankruptcy, bondholders can sometimes get some of their money back, while stockholders often end up empty-handed. But among bondholders, convertible bonds are typically subordinate behind more senior bondholders. In general, its usually best to steer clear of companies near bankruptcy. Many companies we never thought would go under have done so, and there are plenty of healthy, attractive companies to invest in. Learn more at investopedia.com.

Judy Branch grew up in Los Angeles with Cher as a best friend. At age 20, she was hired by trumpet player Harry James and began touring the world as a singer with his band. Throughout her career, she has performed with Wes Montgomery, Kenny Drew Jr. and Lionel Hampton, among others. Now performing under the name Jebry (a nickname her father created from her full name, Judith Eleanore Branch), she lives in Naples and has steady weekly gigs around town. This week, the Jebry and Friends Quintet performs from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, March 18, as part of the Bayshore Cultural and Performing Arts Centers Jazz in the Park series at Sugden Regional Park. The show will include modern jazz, Dixieland and some Broadway tunes. Admission is free, but parking is $5. Jebrys goal is not just to sing, but also to entertain. People dont want to just stare at the singer, they want to feel they are part of the group, she says. So I joke around a lot. I hand the microphone around for people to sing. They clap and dance. They have fun. She grew up in a musical family, with a mother who played several instruments and a father who was a drummer and singer. The house was filled with jazz music from Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme and Frank Sinatra. Jebrys father owned several restaurants that catered to movie stars and record moguls. He paid for Jebry to record a demo, which he gave to an agent. That person connected her with trumpeter Mr. James, who taught her the ropes. Eventually, Jebry formed her own band, which included Bobby McFerrin on piano. She spent 20 years on the road, performing at jazz clubs and theaters throughout Europe, Asia, Greenland, Iceland and Drawn to jazz, Jebry makes songs her ownMining theSEE JEBRY, C21 SEE BOOKS, C4 LARSON ERIK LARSON IS A TIME TRAVELER.

I sat at a diner with my friend Greg this week, elbow deep in a double cheeseburger and talking about why men and women have such a hard time communicating. You know what I think? I pointed a greasy finger at him. More men should tell women theyre beautiful. In fact, Ive noticed that men almost never call a woman beautiful. They only pull it out for special occasions weddings, funerals, the election of a new Pope. In some relationships, the word has attained mythical status, believed to exist but not actually confirmed, like the Skunk Ape. Unfortunately, the term has been relegated to men leaning in the open doorways of bars (Hiya, beautiful), so that women rarely hear it from the men we want to hear it from most. For some reason real men, good men, dont seem to want to say it. You dont want to lead off with beautiful, Greg told me in between bites. You have to pace yourself. I wiped a blob of ketchup from the corner of my mouth. Why would you want to do that? See, beautiful is like the best card you can play. You have to build up to it. Once its on the table, theres nowhere else you can go. I shook my head at him across the countertop. This, I thought, is why men and women will never see eye to eye. What makes beautiful such a special word? Most women dont genuinely think were beautiful. We might think were pretty in the right light or if our hair falls a certain way. We might think were not half bad if we just came home from a trip to Sephora and were wearing that lip gloss we read about in Marie Claire. We might think were hot if we put on that new dress we bought at Dillards and those high heels that were too expensive but we loved them so we bought them anyway. We might even think were sexy. But beautiful? Its not a term we use for ourselves. Its a term we use for some other, better woman out there. Renaissance painters believed that a womans outward appearance reflected her inner qualities, so that a beautiful woman was said to possess interior goodness kindness, generosity, compassion. Botticelli spent a lifetime trying to capture that glow. And today? Not much has changed in our beliefs about women. Think of the starlets who grace our magazine covers and how we often lend them attributes (sweetness, intelligence) that the tabloids pr ove to be false. Still, its like we cant help but connect physical beauty with inward grace. Which is why to call a woman beautiful is such a lovely compliment. The term extends beyond the shape of her face or the color of her hair and gets at something deeper, something more profound. It says that a man finds a woman attractive not just for her appearance but for the inner light that shines through. To call a woman beautiful is to make her feel appreciated, cherished, loved. So why dole it out?

Chances are, if you go to many art events around town, youve probably seen him and his oil and acrylic paintings. He appears in exhibitions and art shows from Naples and Bonita Springs all the way up to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Hes a fixture at the monthly Art in the Park in downtown Naples and at the Art Crafters of Naples shows in Cambier Park. Since he began 10 years ago when he retired, he says, his finished artwork has taken over his garage and fills the walls of his home. Friends come over and they compliment the paintings. Whos the artist? they ask, and I raise my hand, he jokes. Mr. Moukios seems to enjoy his work the way some enjoy photographs from their lives. In fact, he never goes anywhere without his camera and telephoto lens. His Christinas World was created from a photograph he captured one day in a New York City park, where the subject was sitting on a bench across from Mr. Moukios and his wife. I leaned over and told my wife, Look at that painting, he recalls. I was already calling her a painting! The sunlight was reflecting off her hair, and I just knew I wanted to remember that moment. Another one of his works, Fishing with a Friend, however, is almost entirely fictional, he reveals. The piece shows him standing on a small boat, casting a fly rod while six birds mill about expectantly. The funny thing about this one is that I dont own a boat, and I wasnt fishing, he laughs. I made this one up from my imagination. His art is an expression of himself, and he likes showing a sense of humor and telling a story through his artwork, he adds. Hes been honing his craft since his high school days, when he attended the School of Industrial Art in Manhattan. He won a poster contest for a Look Both Ways Before Crossing the Street campaign and was hooked. Subsequently, he spent 25 years in the commercial art world, producing advertising for businesses such as Macys, Gimbles and A&S. After that, he spent another 10 years working as a court reporter. Today he teaches art classes in the Naples community where he lives. Students are at all different levels, and theres no real beginning or end to a given lesson, he says. He mentors his students as they create their art, and he encourages them to continue to stretch and grow. Mr. Moukios sells his artwork to friends, neighbors and visitors and enjoys talking with other local artists. Theyre so helpful and friendly. I love that we all have our own style, he says. Kathleen Taylor is the public relations and marketing director for the Naples Art Association at The von Liebig Art Center. The NAA serves artists, students, art lovers and fellow nonprofit organizations through education, festivals, exhibitions and community outreach.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 deploying these in such a way as to light a fire in the readers imagination. Mr. Larsons historic non-fiction has hit best-seller lists time and again. In 1999, he published Isaacs Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History, about how a hurricane killed as many as 10,000 people in Galveston, Texas, in 1900 after Isaac Cline, the states chief weatherman, predicted that no hurricane could do any great damage to the city. In 2003, Mr. Larsons The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America became the No. 1 New York Times Bestseller. The winner of an Edgar Award for Best Fact-Crime Writing and a finalist for the National Book Award, it tells the story of two men: David Burnham, the architect of the Chicago Worlds Fair of 1893 (also called the White City) and H.H. Holmes, a serial murderer who used the fair as a lure. The Devil in the White City has been optioned by Leonardo DiCaprio, who wants to play the murderer in a feature film based upon the book, which stayed on The New York Times Bestseller list for more than three years as a hardcover, then paperback. Three years after that success, Mr. Larson published Thunderstruck, about Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of the wireless, and Hawley Harvey Crippen, Britains second most-famous murderer after Jack the Ripper. Most recently, in May 2011, he published In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror and an American Family in Hitlers Berlin. The book looks at what life was like in Berlin leading up to the rise of Hitler, through the eyes of William E. Dodd, a mildmannered professor who became Americas first ambassador to Nazi Germany, and his partying daughter, Martha. Tom Hanks production company has just optioned the rights to the book.Hatching ideasMr. Larson will talk about In the Garden of Beasts and his other historical non-fiction at the 13th annual Southwest Florida Reading Festival Saturday, March 17. Hes scheduled to speak 11 a.m. and sign books afterwards. The bane of my career is coming up with ideas, he says, noting that it takes him approximately a year before he finally settles on an idea to expand into a full-fledged book. In the course of that year, I will try on a lot of ideas, he says, even to the point of writing book proposals for them. He knows he has something, he says, when he experiences a combination of a sense that theres more to learn about a subject and an instinctive sense: I think this could be a fun thing to do, and fun for the readers. The story has to have a strong narrative arc, he says, a great story(with) a payoff at the end, some kind of climax or bang at the end. What he set out to do with In the Garden of Beasts, he says, was to try to satisfy my own curiosity about what it wouldve been like to have lived in that era, early in Hitlers rule. I was curious about this gradual and not-sogradual darkening. It had the flavor to me of a Grimm Brothers fairy tale: people walking into a dark wood. It gets darker and darker. I wanted real-life characters who were outsiders, ideally American outsiders. I wanted people who were new to the whole situation. During his research, he came across Ambassador Dodds diary. In itself, it was very compelling, he says, but it wasnt enough for a book. Im not a fan of purely diplomatic history. I kept reading, and I came across, somehow, his daughters memoir. He liked the combination of a nave, mild-mannered professor thrust into a situation that was above his skills, and a flirty, party-loving daughter who initially embraces Nazism and sleeps around, including an affair with the married chief of the Gestapo and a Russian spy. I knew what I was after, Mr. Larson says. I wanted to get a sense of how things were changing, and how that would be for people living there at the time. I had to find those characters who would best allow me to capture the sense. The father-and-daughter Dodds became the authors vehicles for observing the rapid changes in Berlin in that first year. At the time, Americans were firm believers in isolationism and didnt want to get involved in Europes affairs. They were more concerned about being repaid the money Germany owned the U.S. than with stopping Hitler. People also refused to believe stories they heard coming out of Germany. Ambassador Dodd was inexperienced and so ill-suited for the job that some referred to him as Ambassador Dud.Striking a chordReading In the Garden of Beasts is like tripping and falling theres that point where youre unable to right yourself and disaster is inevitable. Readers have the benefit of hindsight and can only read in horror as history unfolds its inevitable blossoming of brutality. In the books acknowledgements, Mr. Larson writes about how darkness would infiltrate my own soul as he worked on the book, and that his deep reading on the subject deepened my spiritual malaise. He did question himself, asking, Why did I take this on? On the eve of publication, it was as if I woke from a weird dream, he says. I was thinking, whos going to read this book? Its another book about the Third Reich. I was in despair. He was scared people were going to take him to task for not writing more about the Holocaust, not realizing he wanted to focus on what led up to it, and how such a thing could happen. Then the book came out, and I cant tell you how amazing the response has been, he says. It has sold at a much larger velocity (than my other books.) I thought Devil did pretty good, but in terms of a response, its been bigger than that book. In the Garden of Beasts has struck some kind of chord, he adds. People on both ends of the political spectrum ask me if I see parallels to today, he says. People on the left worry about the Tea Party and Superpacs stealing democracy, and people on the far right are quite direct about equating Obama with Hitler.A natural progressionMr. Larson, who was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and lives in Seattle, began his writing career as a journalist. At a teenager, he wanted to be a New Yorker cartoonist, but his submissions were all rejected. He also notes that he wrote a novel when he was 13. (It was 75 pages long and had a sex scene, even though I had no idea what sex was, he writes on his website.) He wrote for the Bucks County Courier Times in Levittown, Penn., then was hired by The Wall Street Journal, where he wrote feature stories for Page One and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. When he left The Wall Street Journal, he began writing for national magazines such as The Atlantic, Harpers and The New Yorker, and was a contributing writer for Time magazine. He also began writing books. His first book was The Naked Consumer: How Our Private Lives Become Public Commodities, about how companies spy on individual consumers. It became the basis of a PBS show. He then wrote Lethal Passage: The Story of a Gun. Going from newspapers to books seemed the next logical step, he says. I started out doing news pieces for a small suburban daily, wrote features and then, through extraordinary good luck, began writing for The Wall Street Journal, doing longer pieces. I had the luxury of time. I did freelance magazine stuff, (with even longer pieces) and I thought, For all the effort Im putting into the magazine pieces, I might as well be doing books. It was a natural progression, he says, and I havent looked back.

I AM HERE TO MAKE YOU THINK! I AM NOT HERE TO MAKE PRETTY PICTURES! Its about as clear and succinct an artists statement as youll ever get. The paintings of Abstract Expressionist Mark Rothko werent pretty. He didnt want to make art to hang over the mantle or match the sofa or someones Sherwin-Williams paint chip. At one point, he describes his paintings as a gaping mouth letting out a silent howl of something feral and foul and primal and REAL. The same could be said for John Logans 2010 Tony Award-winning play, Red, at Florida Repertory Theatre through March 25. The play is heart-stopping, thoughtprovoking, challenging and complex. Within its jam-packed 90 minutes it deals with, among other things, art versus commerce, the creative process, mentoring and proteges, Abstract Expressionism versus Pop Art, the myriad ways of looking at color, art as a daily discipline versus the creative impulse, and the way younger generations strive to surpass their elders. It name drops everyone from Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Turner and Matisse to Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein and yes, Robert Rauschenberg.What do you see?Set in Rothkos studio in the Bowery in the late 1950s, Red opens with Ken (David McElwee) showing up in a gray suit on his first day as Rothkos assistant. Hes nervous, anxious to please and more than a little awe-struck by the great artist. Before he can speak, Rothko plants him in front of one of his paintings. What do you see? he asks. This is what all artists ask themselves, and then, through their work, ask us. Great art, whether painting or play or book, opens our eyes and helps us see anew. Theres a wonderful lyrical scene early in the play when the two free-associate different kind of reds, naming everything from lava to Dorothys ruby slippers to a robe in an El Greco painting. Its a riotous recitation and celebration of red, an insight into how artists see. While a regular person will look and proclaim something simply red, artists see the color in all its myriad hues and shades. In this fictionalized portrait of real art history, Rothko has just accepted a commission to make a series of paintings for the Four Seasons restaurant in the new Seagram building on New York Citys Park Avenue, designed by Philip Johnson and Mies Van der Rohe. Hell paint 30 to 40 works, then select a number of them to work in concert, like a fugue. But this great honor turns sour the more Rothko thinks about it, and his relationship with his young assistant causes him to reexamine his motivations.All the right shades Mr. McNulty is a force to be reckoned with on stage. His Rothko is brawny and blustery, a man full of passion and conflicted feelings. He rails against easy answers, against patrons who want art to match the sofa, against gallery owners and ignorant art critics, against the commodification of art. He warns Ken in the beginning that hes not his rabbi or father or teacher, yet he cant help pontificating. Hes so full of knowledge, so chockfull of opinions and philosophies, that they just flow out of him. Mr. McNulty gives us a totally believable Rothko, right down to his immigrant/ child-of-immigrants New York accent. We believe this man is Rothko: difficult, exasperating, talented. And striving, always striving. Mr. McElwee is also well cast as Rothkos assistant. His character starts out gawky and awkward and slowly gains confidence as the play progresses. Hes young and earnest, gradually finding his own voice and point of view. Playwright John Logan gives us five scenes, each building on the previous ones, yet each complete in itself, like a Rothko painting. In addition to giving us insight into the creative process, he shows us artists at work onstage: building frames, stretching canvas, mixing paint, putting a base coat on a canvas. Mr. McElwee is constantly in motion, even moving props during the scene changes. Roberta Malcolms costumes are on the money: 50s-style jeans and sneakers, paint-spattered work clothes, and Rothkos black hat and suit for the outside world. Richard Crowells set is a realistic art studio, complete with seven naked light bulbs, bare brick walls, wooden worktables with coffee cans filled with the ubiquitous paint brushes. As the play progresses, the space grows more and more crowded with oversized painted canvases.Todd O. Wrens lighting is especially noteworthy in this play, particularly because Rothko was so keen on his paintings receiving the proper lighting so that they could appear to pulsate and breathe. Florida Rep Producing Artistic Director Robert Cacioppo has directed Red so well that it appears to have not been directed at all; its as if were peeking in on two artists in a studio in New Yorks lower East Side as theyre going about their work. Red, which closed on Broadway in June 2010, is one of the top-produced regional plays this season, and its easy to see why. Its so rich in ideas, a feast for both the mind and heart. Its overwhelmingly powerful. Just like Rothkos paintings, Red is something to spend time with, to mull over, to contemplate. The more you look, the more you see.

Make every day special! -Angelina PUZZLE ANSWERSLiving the DreamIn bringing the Bard to paradise, Actor faces his Shakespearean fears BY RANDALL KENNETH JONESFlorida Weekly CorrespondentI had a dream recently. I was playing Romeo in a Bulgarian production of Romeo and Juliet. As Im climbing the balcony to reach the fair Juliet, Kurt from Glee flies by and turns me into a donkey. I still manage to pull myself to the top, where I find a really angry Elizabeth Vargas from ABC News, as Juliet, preparing to read her lines from a teleprompter. I dont speak Bulgarian, so my worst fear as an actor appears to be coming true: Ive failed to accurately memorize Shakespearean dialogue. Ms. Vargas glares at me and motions toward the house, where an angrier-than-normal Judge Judy suddenly emerges and starts hitting me with her gavel. When I finally get the line out (evidently I am fluent in Bulgarian while I sleep), I sound just like a Slavic Eddie Murphy in Shrek. Then I woke up. For almost 30 years, I avoided it. I hid. I lied. I disappeared. I cried. Despite graduating with a bachelors degree in speech and dramatic art from the University of Missouri, I successfully dodged the legitimate works of the most famous playwright of all time. Yes, I once received a Best Actor nomination for lampooning the bard in a beach-themed retelling of Romeo and Juliet in a Washington, D.C., summer theatre festival. However, other than a semester of Acting Shakespeare in college, I have remained Bard-free. But finally, now that I live by a beach (ironic, huh?), I am going to face my greatest fear as an actor as I take on the celebrated role of Bottom in A Midsummer Nights Dream for Naplesbased Shakespeare in Paradise. Lets just say John McKerrow, Shakespeare in Paradises producing artistic director, is very persuasive: Come on Randy, its just English. Truth be told, it didnt take all that much convincing. Mr. McKerrows passion for Shakespeare resonates as deeply as his Darth Vadar-esque voice, especially when discussing his young companys commitment to bringing Shakespeare to Collier Countys student population. As a professional theatre company dedicated to presenting understandable and entertaining Shakespeare to the public and to the youth of Southwest Florida, Shakespeare in Paradise employs professional actors, directors, designers and technicians to work alongside student interns. The 11 interns working on Midsummer, all from local private and public schools and area universities, not only perform in the show, but gain experience working backstage and as understudies for leading roles. Shakespeare in Paradise has also entered into a unique relationship with Barron Collier High School, with a percentage of each ticket sold helping to fund the theater program at the school. So here I am at 49, forcing what feels like a foreign language into my brain while watching the 12-year-old Puck understudy, Luciano Marsali, rip through monologue after monologue of Shakespearean verse as if hes done it all his life.Methinks the young one maketh me look like a fool.Then theres my on-stage romantic subplot with the character of Fairy Queen Titania, played by Mary Anne McKerrow the directors wife.Talketh about awkward.Nevertheless, as an actor, humorist, speaker and writer, absolutely no one loves words more than I do. As a matter of fact, I have been told I create pages of text just to say what most writers articulate in four or five words and I have chosen to take that as a compliment.Forsooth, theres a reason Shakespeares extraordinary words have survived centuries to remain the benchmark for every single writer who has come after him. I tip my hat to Mr. McKerrow for recognizing the importance of sharing the Bards works with Southwest Florida. For those who attend our production, which is a celebration of both Shakespeare and the youth of our community, despite my obviously protesting too much, please know that I am loving every minute and living the dream. Thank you, Mr. Shakespeare and Mr. McKerrow.

Real Wood Fired. Call us now for a different dining experience!A GREAT CHOICE FOR GLUTEN FREE AND VEGETARIAN DINERS.* Some restrictions apply.Is it worth $10? NoJohn Carter tries to do everything and accomplishes nothing. Its a bloated sci-fi period piece that freely embraces elements of Star Wars, Avatar, Gladiator and other mega-successful action pics, but it lacks a coherent story of its own. It seems the desire to cram in everything from Edgar Rice Burroughs source material was foolhardy, as it leads to a number of boring, tangential scenes that take us nowhere. The first 10 minutes set the tone. Within that time we go from Mars to 1881 New York to the Old West, and none of it makes any sense. Finally we learn that a Civil War veteran, John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), is on the run from authorities when he comes across an odd medallion and is transported to Mars. There he meets the Navi, err, Thark, large green creatures with four arms (who are really quite nice once you get to know them). Little does Carter know he left one civil war for another. Battling for dominance on Mars are the Helium and Zodanga tribes. Theyre human. The plan is for peace to be settled through the marriage of the Helium Princess Dejah (Lynn Collins) and Zodangas Sab Than (Dominic West). But we know Sab has ulterior motives. Add to this mysterious shape-shifters (one played by Mark Strong of Sherlock Holmes) and internal disputes amongst the Thark, and you have a movie going in a lot of directions at once none of which seems to be forward. This is director and co-writer Andrew Stantons first attempt at live action (he previously made the animated hits Wall*E and Finding Nemo, among others), and he seems a bit overwhelmed. Whereas Brad Bird seamlessly went from animation (The Incredibles) to live action (Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol), Stanton has a heavy script with too many characters, locations and visual effects to mold into fluid cinema. This would have been too much for a lot of directors, let alone one working with real people for the first time. That said, at about the 90-minute point in the 132-minute film, it finds its focus and ends on a much better note than it begins. Once Stanton figures out what we know all along (that John will have to save Dejah, fall in love, et c.), the movie surges to an intense, actionpacked ending that has a few surprises up its sleeve. Still, it all feels like a rip-off of other, better movies. You can imagine the producers pitching the film to financiers by listing all the movies its going to remind people of, all while telling a crazy story of its own. This in itself isnt terrible, but for all the visual flair, the colors seem oddly monotone and the 3D doesnt pop. While its not necessarily a bad thing that John Carter reminds us of other films, it is unfortunate that it only reminds us how much better those other films are. Project X (Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown) Three high school losers (Mann, Cooper and Brown) throw a party that gets so big they become legends. The no-holds-barred approach and first-person camera make this a fun and accessible night of debauchery. Rated R.Dr. Seuss The Lorax (Voices of Danny DeVito, Ed Helms, Zac Efron) 12-year-old Ted (Efron) leaves his world of plastic behind and tries to find a real tree in this adaptation of the Dr. Seuss story. It has some amusing moments, but the environment-friendly message is too overbearing for the films own good. Rated PG. Act Of Valor (Roselyn Sanchez, Nestor Serrano, Alex Veadov) A team of Navy Seals attempts to rescue a kidnapped CIA agent (Sanchez) and stop a terrorist (Veadov) from attacking the U.S. Starring real (and un-credited) U.S. Navy Seals, the action is appropriately intense and, we presume, authentic. The story falters at times, but this is worth checking out. Rated R.

Back to Los Angeles in 1984, Jebry was approached by a friend from Southwest Florida who said the Old Marco Lodge in Goodland needed a singer for two weeks. They invited her to stay for season, and shes been here for almost 26 years. She has had a successful career despite not receiving any formal training, except for some vocal lessons from jazz pianist Harry Fields. She doesnt even play a musical instrument. But shes always been drawn to jazz. I like to take a melody and work within the chord structure to improvise and make it my own, she says. The songs that came out of that era to me are the finest songs ever written, with great melodies and great lyric content.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYARTS TWO C25ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTAntiques Society Cuisine WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 Cushing, Spellman, OConnor: The Surprising Story of How Three American Cardinals Transformed Catholic-Jewish Relations, by Rabbi James Rudin. Eerdmans. 157 pages. $18. Rabbi James Rudin provides a thoroughly researched yet easily accessible insiders view on the how the Second Vatican Councils statement against anti-Semitism came into being. In particular, he underscores the roles of two influential men Cardinals Richard James Cushing and Francis Joseph Spellman in gaining support for the transformative Nostra Aetate document that finally became official Vatican policy in 1965. Rabbi Rudin prepares for his main narrative by offering background on the history of Jewish-Catholic relationships over the centuries. In so doing, he details the two major stumbling blocks to accommodation: One was the promulgation of the concept that Christianity, rooted in the covenant of the New Testament, rendered the Israelite covenant with the one God obsolete and irrelevant. The replacement theology that made Christianity spiritually the New Israel and the only path to redemption could never create harmonious relationships with a people who continued, in spite of all forces turned against it, to maintain itself as a viable, powerful faith tradition. The second was the inherited view, based on faulty history, that the Jews were Christ-killers. The author shows how both of these concepts nourished anti-Semitism and possibly even fed the flames of hatred that culminated in the Holocaust. His detailed biographies of the theologically conservative Cardinals Cushing and Spellman, contemporaries with very different personalities, help Rabbi Rudin explain how each man prepared himself to take advantage of a moment in history at which their personal power, political influence and largely unexpected commitment to a new vision could bring forth a strong majority vote in favor of the Declaration on Jews and Judaism that concluded the Second Vatican Council. Of particular interest is Rabbi Rudins section on The Art of Romanita in his biography of Cardinal Spellman. He defines this term as the art of subtly bestowing personal favors to cement friendships which later could be converted into influence for the individuals who had provided the favors. Rabbi Rudin writes, Spellman practiced Romanita better than anyone else within the global Catholic Church. He used his mastery of this art quite well in the service of the Second Vatican Council. Rabbi Rudin takes us through the endless rewrites (primarily by Cardinal Bea), the strenuous politicking and the persuasive speeches of Cardinals Cushing and Spellman that eventuated in the Nostra Aetate and the opening of new possibilities. He also points out the fragility of this new teaching in the light of the engrained anti-Jewish hostility that is still part of Catholic tradition. The Declaration needed and still needs ongoing support, constant positive action by Catholic and Jewish leaders, to maintain its vision and force. In this regard, the exemplary figure was the third American Catholic giant, Cardinal John OConnor, whose efforts a generation later brought forth important results. Rabbi Rudin looks closely at Cardinal OConnors upbringing, religious education, early assignments and then his 27-year career as a Navy chaplain that culminated in him becoming Chief of Navy Chaplains and reaching the rank of rear admiral. The author also discusses the cardinals shift from hawk to dove on military policy. Most importantly, Rabbi Rudin points out that Cardinal OConnors experiences led him to value religious pluralism in American society. When he became archbishop of New York, John OConnor used his position to foster such activities as the Catholic-Jewish Educational Enrichment Program. This joint project of the American Jewish Committee and the Archdiocese of New York brought energy and action to the vision and goals of the Second Vatican Council. Since Rabbi Rudin and Cardinal OConnor often worked together on interreligious relations, this section of the book benefits from the authors personal experiences. In his final chapter, Rabbi Rudin summarizes the importance these three men: Although they would have denied it, these theologically conservative cardinals were, in fact, revolutionary leaders, because they were major participants in one of the greatest religious sea changes in human history. However, the rabbi goes on to remind us that concerns remain. These include the cloud over the actions and inactions of Pope Pius XII during his long pontificate and the worry that Pope Benedict XVI might not be a strong advocate of continuing to build Catholic-Jewish relations. Cushing, Spellman, OConnor is a highly engaging, dramatic treatment of a remarkable and praiseworthy transformation. Note: A profile of Sanibel resident Rabbi James Rudin appeared in Florida Weekly in February 2011 along with a review of his previous book, Christians and Jews Faith to Faith. l i v R h i p philJASON firstname.lastname@example.org Three Catholic cardinals spur a sea change in religious history COURTESY PHOTORudin Its high season for clubs and organizations to hold special events and programs for members and guests as well as regular meetings.

This situation is particularly annoying when one or more finesses need to be taken, but declarer cant get to the correct hand to make the desired play or plays. In this deal, for example, if declarer could lead from dummy at will, he could take successful finesses in spades, hearts and diamonds and make 11 tricks. But with no ready-made entry to dummy, South must play exceedingly well to make even 10 tricks. He knows from the bidding that each of the three possible finesses is sure to succeed, but the best he can hope to do is to tunnel his way into dummy to take two of them. Accordingly, at trick two he leads the jack of hearts and overtakes it with the queen. (Note that South does not play the ace of hearts first, which would deprive him of a vital entry to dummy.) East wins the heart with the king and returns a club. Declarer ruffs high in order to preserve his 5-2 as entries to dummys 8-7. South next crosses to dummy with a low trump and takes a spade finesse that succeeds, then returns to dummy with another low trump and takes a diamond finesse that succeeds. As a result of this meticulous manipulation of his trumps, South loses only a spade, a heart and a diamond, and so makes four hearts.

A davenport in England is a type of small desk. In the United States, it is a sofa. An ad may offer a Duncan Phyfe table. A man named Duncan Phyfe was a 19th-century New York cabinetmaker. The table offered in the ad may have been made by Mr. Phyfe, it may have been made in his style during the years he worked or it may be a recent piece in the Duncan Phyfe style. A store may advertise a Tiffany lamp, meaning a lamp with a distinctive type of glass shade, but to a collector it means a lamp made by and marked by Louis Comfort Tiffany at the turn of the 20th century. Jade can be one of two minerals: nephrite or jadeite. Jadeite usually is considered the more valuable stone. And to make it even more confusing, you must look carefully at how the word is spelled. Jadite is a green glass made by Jeannette Glass Co., and Jade-ite is a shade of green glass made by Anchor Hocking Glass Corp. A music box sold in October at Cowans Auctions in Cincinnati was a Regina Rookwood model that brought $17,037. Its a wooden tableshaped music-box case with a painted design on the front. It has nothing to do with the famous Rookwood Pottery. The name was just a marketing idea. So be careful if youre searching for some antique terms online. You may come up with unexpected results. Q: I have an old tin that says Dunhills Original Pontefract Cakes, Estab. 1760 on the top. Can you give me any information about the company and the age and value of this tin? A: Pontefract cakes, which are sometimes called Pomfret cakes, are small licorice candies. Licorice has been used for medicinal purposes for more than 3,000 years. Cluniac monks brought licorice plants to Pontefract, England, from Spain during the Middle Ages. In 1614 Sir George Saville sold licorice cakes or lozenges as cures for stomach ailments. The lozenges were stamped with a stylized picture of Pontefract Castle. Dunhills was established in 1760 by George Dunhill, a chemist, who added sugar, molasses and flour to licorice extract to make licorice candy. Pontefract cakes were also stamped with a picture of Pontefract Castle. Several companies in Pontefract began making the candy, which was sometimes called Yorkshire Pennies. Haribo, a German company, bought majority interest in Dunhills in 1972 and the remaining shares in 1994. It still operates the factory in Pontefract.

was probably made in the 1930s. It could be worth $50 to $75. Q: Please tell me what my old tin Donald Duck Paint Set box is worth, minus the watercolor paints that were originally inside it. The outside of the lid pictures Donald painting at an easel and Mickey Mouse admiring his work. The inside of the lid has pictures of Donald, Mickey, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and Goofy. A: Donald Duck paint sets were made by a few different companies. The first ones came out in the 1930s. Some sets were sold in lithographed tin boxes and others in paperboard boxes. Your set would be worth more if all the paints, unused, were still inside. The lithographed tin box is an early one and if the box is in excellent condition, a Disneyana collector would pay $25 or more for it. Q: I have a Fenton Bittersweet Hanging Heart vase with a certificate of authenticity signed by Frank M. Fenton, Robert Barber and Delmar Stowasser on Aug. 26, 1975. The vase is 8 inches tall and is orange with swirling black lines and black hearts. The bottom is marked /705, Fenton, 1975 and DGS. What is it worth? A: Your vase is part of Fentons 1975 Robert Barber Collection. Barber joined Fenton as artist-in-residence in 1975 and left the company in 1976. Delmar Stowasser was one of Barbers assistants. There were nine different limited edition vases in the collection. The numbers on your vase indicate it was the 406th vase in a limited edition of 705 vases. Fenton Art Glass Co. was founded in Martins Ferry, Ohio, by Frank L. Fenton and his brother, John W. Fenton. It is now located in Williamstown, W.Va., and is still run by members of the Fenton family. But it ended production of art glass in 2011. Many Fenton limited-edition pieces have been sold on television. Value of your vase: about $500. Tip: Clean chrome with white vinegar or tea.

The food is sophisticated but unfussy, ambitious but not overworked, classical yet novel. The chorizo mejillones is simply one of the best mussel preparations Ive eaten in a couple of decades of reviewing restaurants. Imag ine the flavor explosion of spicy Mexican chorizo sausage, acidic white wine and tomatoes, grassy cilantro pesto and creamy queso fresco. Picture these colorful toppings mingling with a dozen and a half plump mussels sauted until they are just barely cooked through and not a second more. The fish of the day, Arctic char, was simply grilled and simply perfect. Meats are executed equally well, as evidenced by an expertly crusted, juicy flatiron steak topped with rich blue cheese thats smoked in-house. Order it with a side of the best French fries you will ever eat in Southwest Florida theyre sprinkled with Parmesan and fresh herbs and drizzled with earthy truffle oil. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2011Caf Normandie, 3756 Tamiami Trail N.; 261-0977: This low-key outpost along U.S. 41 manages to provide delight ful French fare and a casual, laid-back hospitality, compliments of owner Benoit Legris. The wine list is brief but well chosen, a snapshot of wines that please the owner. You cant go wrong with mussels in Normandie cream sauce or the escargots de Bourgogne. Roasted duck with spicy peach sauce was a glorious variation on duck lorange, and the shrimp and sea scallops au gratin were simple yet elegant. Dinner concluded with a classic raspberry tart and whisper-thin crepe Suzette. The service, Old World atmosphere and moderate prices all enhanced a wonderful meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2010 Latitude Fusion Cuisine & Piano Bar, Naples Walk, 2500 Vanderbilt Beach Road; 596-5600: Stylish and comfortable, Latitude resembles a well-appointed supper club filled with dark woods, oversized booth and sleek Art Deco touches. The open kitchen adds a touch of theater as well. The menu is a mix of comfort food and fusion fare, the stuff for which Chef Ross Peterson is known. From a selection of flatbreads, I liked the yeasty crust topped with lots of Portobello, goat cheese and caramelized onions. An Old World charcuterie platter had an interesting array of wursts, although Id have preferred more firm varieties and fewer soft ones. The Better than Nanas Kobe beef Bolognese was terrific, with a soulful sauce, lots of tomatoes, onions, carrots and herbs simmered for a long time with the ground beef and accompanied by garlic bread. Lovely live music at just the right volume and a well-chosen wine list enhanced the meal. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2011Noodle Saigon, 13500 Tamiami Trail N.; 598-9400: For an inexpensive but excellent Vietnamese feast, head straight to Noodle Saigon. The 12-page menu might be intimidating at first, but the friendly servers are happy to help newcomers sort through it. Ive found its hard to go wrong here. On my most recent visit, I enjoyed savory asparagus crabmeat soup, shrimp paste on sugar cane, steamed rice crepe with grilled pork, shrimp summer rolls, clams with black bean sauce and the restaurants heavenly version of rare beef pho. For dessert, we followed our servers suggestion and tried a tasty mix of mashed avocado, sweetened condensed milk, ice, lime, sugar and mint. The combination resembled Italian water ice and was a great end to a terrific meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2011 Seasons 52, 8930 Tamiami Trail N.; 594-8852: This small chain, new to Southwest Florida, has a lot going for it. Start with the regularly changing menu that features seasonal ingredients at their peak of flavor in dishes that forswear indulgence without sacrificing flavor Â nothing c ontains more than 475 calories. Consider the globe-spanning wine list that offers more than 100 selections 52 or more by the glass. And the casual but plush atmosphere feels organic, with earthy colors, polished woods and stacked stone. Start with one of the flatbreads, cracker-thin pizzas carpeted with precisely arranged toppings and baked in a super-hot brick oven. The menu achieves a good balance of seafood and meats. An artichoke-stuffed shrimp dish was succulent and redolent of sage, while wood-grilled T-bone lamb chops were perfectly cooked and remark ably tender. Save room for dessert without guilt: Seasons 52s Mini Indulgences are tiny treats red velvet cake, pumpkin mousse and much more Â serv ed in shot glasses.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C43 Social dining clubs that offer amenities such as themed dinners, wine tastings and special access to facilities are few and far between these days. The novelty alone makes the Naples Harbour Yacht Club worth checking out. Annual membership costs about $200, which includes use of a fitness room, spa, sauna and pool as well as privileges at Florida Marina Clubs properties in Key West, Sanibel and Tampa. You dont have to join, however, to try out the yacht clubs two restaurants Jacks River Bar and the recently refurbished and rechristened Gordons on the River. The former is a casual spot known for ginormous sandwiches and really huge burgers. The latter is upstairs and upscale and features aged steaks, fresh seafood and fine wines. Non-members can get a weeks pass to check out the restaurants before being expected to join up (although when we arrived no one even asked for a name or if we had a reservation). We settled on a night at Gordons because it was the newer concept, and the menu showed a bit more ambition. Both the food and the hospitality were noteworthy, but the level of attention we received might have been colored by the fact that we had the dining room completely to ourselves. Thus, its hard to say how service would be on a busier night. Our server assured us that Gordons is attracting a lively crowd on the weekends. Its location far from the hot spots of Fifth Avenue South, Third Street South and The Mercato could be drawback. The Naples Harbour Yacht Club sits west of Naples Municipal Airport on a road that doesnt naturally draw a lot of traffic. And despite its name, diners cant actually see the Gordon River from Gordons on the River. Walk out on the screened patio and youll see a pool below with just a hint of mangrove-fringed water beyond. View aside, the owners have strived to create a plush atmosphere in the dining room, with polished woods, subtle lighting and heavy wooden chairs upholstered in rich paisley fabric. A discordant note in the otherwise tasteful atmosphere came from the background recorded piano music, which is one step removed from an elevator soundtrack. After settling into those big comfy chairs, we ordered glasses of 2009 Sean Minor Four Bears Pinot Noir ($16) and 2009 Amalaya Malbec ($13). The bottle wine list is extensive, and there are about 20 by-the-glass options. Considering the lack of diners, I was relieved to hear the popping corks of new bottles of wine no need to worry about sour old dregs here. The restaurant has a sommelier who clearly doesnt cut corners even when traffic is thin, and he offers helpful pairing suggestions with each dish on the menu. Appetizers run the gamut from classic escargot at $10 to caviar-crowned oysters Romanoff at an eye-popping $50. Most starters fall around $15, including the Key West scallops, two perfectly seared sea scallops served atop toast points and laced with a sweet-smoky caramelized onion sauce. Two scallops isnt much for $15, but the cooking was spot-on and the sauce didnt overwhelm the delicate nature of the shellfish. We also shared the chop salad ($10), a flavorful mlange of greens, grape tomatoes, green peas, chickpeas, carrots and red onion. It was lightly dressed with a lemon-pepper vinaigrette that heightened the flavors without drowning them. So far, so good. Our server kept an attentive eye on the table, inquiring about our satisfaction and keeping tabs on the timing of courses. The staff appears to be well trained and knowledgeable about the menu. When quizzed about the ingredients of a sauce, our server passed the test, explaining that the Prigueux sauce topping the New York strip steak ($35) was named for the Perigord region of France that is famous for its black truffles. Gordons rendition of the sauce managed to perfectly balance the natural earthiness of the truffles with the Madeira and other ingredients. The grilled, aged Black Angus beef was perfectly seared rare, as ordered, and topped with thick, crisp onion rings. A few tender asparagus spears and a roasted tomato stuffed with panko bread crumbs filled out the dish nicely. Other meat options include prime rib and filet mignon (each $45) and a tempting but spendy $48 quartet of wild boar sausage, ostrich fillet, venison tenderloin and braised oxtail. For the more budget-minded diner: smoked oyster fettuccine Alfredo and eggplant lasagna puttanesca cost $20 and $22. The Sri Lanka-spiced snapper ($29) was a more-than-generous portion of fish, perfectly cooked so that it retained its natural moisture and sweetness. The spices were mild Indian curry-style, and the pickled-cucumber-and-tomato relish on the side cooled any heat the seasonings might have generated. Overall, a well-prepared fish served with basmati rice. Desserts are made on the premises at Gordons, which is a plus. A coconut cake ($7) was layered with banana pudding and banana slices a creative and tasty touch. A Baileys Irish Crme cheesecake ($7) was more predictable but nonetheless well executed. With or without dining club membership, Gordons puts a fresh and flavorful spin on an old concept.
