C31-C34 The Naples Children & Education Foundation and Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida recently distributed the 1 millionth pound of food for underprivileged and at-risk Collier County children and their families at Avalon Elementary School in East Naples. The food distribution drew 350 families who loaded cardboard boxes with carrots, apples, cabbages, onions, potatoes and other produce along with canned goods, cereal and meat. Twenty-five volunteers assisted with registering the families and helping them select groceries from the mobile food pantry branded with the Lunch Boxes of Love logo. ELAYNE JACKSON REFUSED TO BECOME THE WORST STAtistic, in part by wearing a helmet. It was the first in a list of several things she did right as a bicyclist in North Naples traffic but it was the only one that paid off. The worst statistic is listed under Fatality. It occurs often enough in Florida to give the Sunshine State its infamous tag: Most Dangerous the most dangerous state in the union for bicyclists and pedestrians, according to Transportation for America, an organization that collects data from all 50 states. What happened to the 45-year-old Ms. Jackson, a fit, everyday Neapolitan bicyclist, very nearly put her in the grave.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 This weeks Fort Myers Film Festival is unprecedented in the region as a life litmus test. Fail to find something on the sumptuous 77-film menu of domestic and foreign works that you cant live without and obviously youve stopped breathing. In which case, hang up immediately and call 9-1-1. Even my 84-year-old mother, who has been blind since she was 45, wanted to come from 2,000 miles away to see a FMFF film. The hell with eyes, she probably figured. I intend to see that movie about Kaziah Hancock. Like Ms. Hancock, my mother is a Westerner. Thats the way she thinks, and its the way you should think, too. From any direction and distance from Naples, Punta Gorda, Looneyville, Texas, or Toad Suck, Ark. (real places, all) youd do well to pick a film or five, and come and imbibe. Created and organized by Eric Raddatz, FMFF is a cultural soiree that mixes independent dramas and documentaries with two other ingredients: the lively people who make movies and the luminous revelations that great art always air-lifts unexpectedly into our base-camp sensibilities. Find the complete schedule inside our Arts & Entertainment section this week and also at www.fortmyersfilmfestival.com. Undeniably, my pitch smacks of the most virulent nepotism (a highly underrated virtue when I employ it, but a terrible sin against God and man when others do). Mr. Raddatz, after all, is very nearly family. He came to my wedding 11 years ago this month, when he was only beginning to think about film as more than an avocation. Every seven days now he designs Florida Weeklys section fronts, creating images for our singular feature and news reports with a graphic power that no other artist in the Sunshine State can match. Whenever I win awards for stories, Mr. Raddatz has designed them so compellingly that the judges become intoxicated by art, violating every rule of sobriety that currently shackles judges in journalism contests. Then, grinning like lushes, they hand me the prizes for writing.Mr. Raddatz has now done with cinema what, say, Robert and Carrie Cacioppo have done with stage plays at Florida Repertory Theatre; or what Myra Daniels and a cast of thousands have done with painting, sculpture and music at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples; or what Randy Wayne White and Jeff Lindsay have done with the novel from their coastal hidey-holes; or what Clyde and Niki Butcher have done with photography in the Big Cypress; or what Andrew Kurtz and Amy Padilla have done with accessible classical music at the Gulf Coast Symphony.Like each of them, Mr. Raddatz has created a compelling gravity of art that begins right here and draws in the world. How? Glancing in his car wont tell you, thats for sure. Any more than looking around the edges of Picassos messy studio would have told you how he created some of the worlds greatest paintings. Papers, DVDs, CDs, clothes, fast-food wrappers, chaos all the good stuff is there, piled on passenger seats and floors. But when Mr. Raddatz is in the car, the other good stuff is also present: poise, charisma, wit, curiosity, intelligence, experience, ego, insecurity, tolerance, determination, confidence, ambition, charm and Chicago (his hometown). Everything an artist needs. Also, religion and talent. I say that because I suspect that Mr. Raddatz, himself a filmmaker, writer and actor, has struggled with religion (the kind that might not appreciate self-expression), to assert his own talent (the kind that requires self-expression). But why in movies? Let me make another guess: Because movies have the power to affect more people with the full deck words, sounds and images together than any other art form. Theyve certainly affected me with that power. The first one I ever saw, on a summer evening in 1958 when the Rocky Mountains stood up like sharp waves against the lustrous sheen of dusk, was a short feature about western animals. Probably Disney. In full color. To ever feel so much awestruck excitement again, Id have to land on Mars or spot a mastodon in the north woods or watch my father walk back out of the eternal night, to take me to the movies one more time. With Daddy sitting patiently beside me, I recall a bear scratching his behind against a tree while a dark theater full of children erupted in laughter. I recall a wolverine chewing into a trappers cabin while a dark theater full of children erupted in silence. I recall the syrupy bass of a narrators voice describing animals always seemingly on the verge of comic speech. As magic as that was, it wasnt a real movie, except in form. Real movies, like any art of story on the stage, in the novel or merely in the telling only ever offer variations on three subjects: love, war and death. All of which George Stevens took on in his great 1953 movie, Shane, powered by a screenplay from the fine American novelist A.B. Guthrie Jr. and made on location in Wyoming. That was the second film I ever saw, and Ive never gotten over it. Shane was about courage, grit, generosity and self-sacrifice, and so is the 27-minute documentary about Kaziah Hancock of Manti, Utah (Kaziah the Goat Woman). Ms. Hancock, a farmer and portrait painter, is just as tough and generous as the fictional hero in the old Western, and almost as tough as my mother. Like Shane once did, now Ms. Hancock, as real as rain, has ridden off the silver screen and into the valley of our lives, courtesy of Kathleen Dolan, the producer, Amy Duzinski, the director, and Eric Raddatz, the Fort Myers Film Festival wizard. See, this is where I get to be a mother, Ms. Hancock says in the first line of the movie, eyeballing the camera like a gunfighter. Thirty girls, all pregnant hell, yes. Mama Kaziah. Grinning like the wide West, then she starts forking hay into the goat pen. My kind of woman. May we welcome her this week to the Fort Myers Film Festival with many others, and may they remain here in our hearts forever. Going to the movies rogerWILLIAMS firstname.lastname@example.orgCOMMENTARY Question: I get up to urinate two to three times every night. I usually go right back to sleep, but sometimes I am tired the next day. Is this normal?Answer: This condition is called nocturia and can be caused by a number of dierent issues. It is very common and considered normal for a person to get up once per night to urinate by age 70. This is because as the body ages it becomes slightly less ecient at eliminating uid during the day. However, if you are needing to urinate two or more times per night, it could be due to problems such as an enlarged prostate or other prostate problem in men. In women this could be due to a fallen bladder or urethral problem. It is essential to evaluate the underlying causes for no cturia so that you have the option of treating the minor issues and the oppor tunity to nd something serious early. Treatments could be as simple as modications in your diet or uid intake to simple medications or over-the-counter supplements and even exercise.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONHire me amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly In all the meetings hes had with his political team, one wonders if anyone has ever told Mitt Romney, Be yourself. If someone did, Romney surely would want to see the PowerPoint presentation and all the supporting evidence before taking such daring, counterintuitive advice. But Romney could do worse than letting it all hang out, which, for him, means buttoning up and diving into the data for some rigorously bloodless analysis. Mitt Romneys foremost sin as a politician has always been trying too hard. His gaffes tend to come from straining to identify with people. On defense over the downsizing work of Bain? Say you once feared getting pink slips yourself. ... In Detroit? Say Ann Romney drives a couple of Cadillacs. ... At a NASCAR event alien to you? Say you know some of the owners. If Romney is the Republican nominee, he would be wise to resist all the advice hell get on how to forge the kind of connection with voters that has heretofore escaped him. He should play by different rules: Dont go out of your way to empathize. Dont tell anyone about your passions. Dont share endearing personal stories. Romney is a fundamentally decent man who has been true to his family and his faith. Hes even-tempered to a fault and personally polite (if politically ruthless). But he wont win the Would you want to have a beer with him? contest with Obama. Romney is a workmanlike politician. His pitch for himself should be that hell be an equally workmanlike president. Although it hasnt set the GOP on fire, his truest, most natural message is that hes a turnaround artist the guy who can rationally evaluate a situation, come up with a plan and execute it. His case has to include a vision of a better America. But his implicit slogan should be No one ever regretted hiring Mitt Romney to do a job. Romney has been the default candidate in the Republican nomination fight and will inevitably be the default candidate in the general-election campaign, if hes the nominee. Voters will first decide if they are inclined to retire President Obama. Then, they will ask whether Romney is acceptable. As a politician, sheer acceptability is one of his most prized qualities. No chiliastic expectations will attach to Romney. No one will expect him to turn back the tides. Thats just as well. The messianic model of the 2008 Obama campaign is vaguely unrepublican and must, by its very nature, disappoint. Romneys promise is more pedestrian, if less juvenile: to comb through the federal books. When Barack Obama made the same pledge during his first campaign, it was laughably insincere. One imagines Romney literally doing it, at all hours and with relish. For all Romneys flaws, there are worse men to make president at a time when the federal government needs to be transformed and the economy made more efficient. In 2008, Obama asked the nation to do itself the favor of allowing him to bestow on it all his history-making grandeur. In 2012, if he gets the chance, Romney should ask the nation something much more basic: Hire me. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Terror, trauma and the endless Afghan warWe may never know what drove a U.S. Army staff sergeant to head out into the Afghan night and allegedly murder at least 16 civilians in their homes, among them nine children and three women. The massacre near Belambai, in Kandahar, Afghanistan, has shocked the world and intensified the calls for an end to the longest war in U.S. history. The attack has been called tragic, which it surely is. But when Afghans attack U.S. forces, they are called terrorists. That is, perhaps, the inconsistency at the core of U.S. policy, that democracy can be delivered through the barrel of a gun, that terrorism can be fought by terrorizing a nation. I did it, the alleged mass murderer said as he returned to the forward operating base outside Kandahar, that southern city called the heartland of the Taliban. He is said to have left the base at 3 a.m. and walked to three nearby homes, methodically killing those inside. One farmer, Abdul Samad, was away at the time. His wife, four sons, and four daughters were killed. Some of the victims had been stabbed, some set on fire. Samad told The New York Times, Our government told us to come back to the village, and then they let the Americans kill us. The massacre follows massive protests against the U.S. militarys burning of copies of the Quran, which followed the video showing U.S. Marines urinating on the corpses of Afghans. Two years earlier, the notorious kill team of U.S. soldiers that murdered Afghan civilians for sport, posing for gruesome photos with the corpses and cutting off fingers and other body parts as trophies, also was based near Kandahar. In response, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta rolled out a string of cliches, reminding us that war is hell. Panetta visited Camp Leatherneck in Helmand province, near Kandahar, this week on a previously scheduled trip that coincidentally fell days after the massacre. The 200 Marines invited to hear him speak were forced to leave their weapons outside the tent. NBC News reported that such instructions were highly unusual, as Marines are said to always have weapons on hand in a war zone. Earlier, upon his arrival, a stolen truck raced across the landing strip toward his plane, and the driver leapt out of the cab, on fire, in an apparent attack. The violence doesnt just happen in the war zone. Back in the U.S., the wounds of war are manifesting in increasingly cruel ways.The 38-year-old staff sergeant who allegedly committed the massacre was from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, a sprawling military facility near Tacoma, Wash., that has been described by Stars and Stripes newspaper as the most troubled base in the military and, more recently, as on the brink. 2011 marked a record for soldier suicides there. The base also was the home for the kill team.The Seattle Times reported earlier this month that 285 patients at JBLMs Madigan Army Medical Center had their post-traumatic stress disorder diagnoses inexplicably reversed by a forensic psychiatric screening team. The reversals are now under investigation due to concerns they were partly motivated by a desire to avoid paying those who qualify for medical benefits. Kevin Baker was also a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army, stationed at Fort Lewis. After two deployments to Iraq, he refused a third after being denied a PTSD diagnosis. He began organizing to bring the troops home. He told me: If a soldier is wounded on a battlefield in combat, and theyre bleeding to death, and an officer orders that person to not receive medical attention, costing that servicemember their life, that officer would be found guilty of dereliction of duty and possibly murder. But when that happens in the U.S., when that happens for soldiers that are going to seek help, and officers are ordering not a clear diagnosis for PTSD and essentially denying them that metaphoric tourniquet, real psychological help, and the soldier ends up suffering internally to the point of taking their own life or somebody elses life, then these officers and this military and the Pentagon has to be held responsible for these atrocities. While too late to save Abdul Samads family, Bakers group, March Forward! along with Iraq Veterans Against the Wars Operation Recovery, which seeks to ban the deployment of troops already suffering from PTSD may well help end the disastrous, terrorizing occupation of Afghanistan.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 I enjoy having Joe Klimas, a former sports director for several media outlets here on the Paradise Coast, as a weekly guest on my show to bring an informed local flavor to the sports scene. Hes a great resource for the latest news on high school sports. In fact, hes a public address announcer for many events and does radio coverage of some high school events at www. swfllocalnews.com. He also offers great insight about college and professional sports. The ACE Group Classic golf tournament has been an institution here on the Paradise Coast for 25 years, and while the venue, sponsors and players have changed, Joe has been the voice of continuity, introducing the players on the tee for all 25 years. He loves the continuity as well as the chance to get to know the players as athletes whose skills he truly admires. At age 74, Joe has reduced his workload. Earlier in his life, however, he was a fixture in local sports media. As the sports director for Comcast, he kept a full schedule of nightly sportscasts, play-by-play for high school football, the Florida Sea Dragons USBL basketball, the Florida Flame NBDL basketball and between periods host for Florida Everblades ECHL hockey. Prior to Comcast he was the sports director for WNOG. In 1986, Gulfshore Life magazine named Joe one of the years Most Interesting Personalities in Southwest Florida. He has also received the Unsung Hero Award from the Collier County Sportsmens Association and the National Cable Television Associations ACE Award. Joe has always contributed to the community beyond his broadcasting efforts, having served on the Presidents Council of the Naples Chapter of the American Lung Association and on the board of directors for the Collier County Fair, the Florida State Chili Championships and Southwest Florida Golf Charities. Since 2001, hes been self-employed as one of the announcers for the Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track. And he still does play-by-play for high school football and basketball. Long before he became a sportscaster and sports director, however, Joe was a sports star in his own right. In high school in Branford, Conn., he played baseball, basketball and football and in 1998 was named to the Branford High School Sports Hall of Fame. At the University of Connecticut, he was a standout in football, playing quarterback, defensive back and kicker. Between his freshman and sophomore years at Uconn, he served three-plus years in the Navy, and he left the school to play minor league professional football in the United League, Atlantic PROFILES IN PARADISEWhat the Paradise Coast really needs: Its pretty darn good just the way it is. b h n I w U bobHARDEN e-mail: email@example.com Talking points with Joe KlimasSomething thats been on your mind: Im just going to keep going.

For the past five years, Joe has been battling lung cancer. Hes had several forms of treatment, including chemotherapy and radiation. Now on maintenance chemo, hes hoping in the near future to receive a clean bill of health so he can continue his work with the Ace Group Classic and with local school sports and other community events. He loves competition, and he loves having his voice heard in the community. I love hearing his voice in the Paradise Coast community, too, and Ill always be proud to have Joe on my show.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 I got to the outside of the left hand turn lane, because I needed to go north on 41, she recalls. All I remember is being in the left turn lane where I was supposed to be, at the intersection. And when the light turned, I guess I went. I woke up three days later not knowing whether I was in Rhode Island (her home state) or Florida. The answer was neither. Ms. Jackson was in the intensive care unit at Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers, where shed been airlifted to the trauma center a world unto its own. The driver of a Collier County-owned Ford 350 pick-up hauling a trailer apparently positioned on her right, and also facing east on Vanderbilt Beach Road accelerated when the light turned green and ran over her, dragging her for many feet. Fault has not been established; no witnesses have come forward, and as of press time, the Florida Highway Patrol has not yet seen a video of the crash from cameras facing the intersection, according to a spokesman, who did not say why the video was still unavailable after more than two weeks. A 3-foot state driving law requires drivers passing bicyclists to come no closer than a yard to any bicyclist. If her memory serves, along with the judgments of other bicyclists who studied the scene, nothing Ms. Jackson did was an error on her part, including getting out in traffic. Cyclists operating on roads and who do so in a manner similar to how motorists operate including controlling a lane when its too narrow to share (less than 12 feet) fare best, says Dan Moser, a bicycle advocate who writes a column for the Fort Myers edition of Florida Weekly. Our traffic principle is based on first come, first served, and that includes cyclists having that right. Michelle Avola, executive director of the Naples Pathways Coalition, a nonprofit organization that for the past eight years has promoted safer streets for bicyclists and pedestrians, echoes that judgment. Cyclists are advised to ride on the right side of the lane in the absence of a bike lane, and she obviously couldnt safely make a left turn from the bike lane on the far right side of Vanderbilt Beach Road. She was doing nothing wrong, based on what she told me. Ms. Jackson, meanwhile, is preparing to spend months recovering from a long laundry list of injuries and hard knocks: nine broken ribs that punctured her lung, a lacerated liver, a broken collar bone and shoulder bone, a broken tibia (the larger bone in the lower leg), two broken vertebrae and a broken knee cap not to mention skin and tissue ground down to the bone. She was going back into surgery this week to begin skin grafts and repair damage, according to her mother, Ann Palumbo, who flew in from Rhode Island to be with her daughter the day after the accident. The doctor said probably three more weeks in the hospital, Ms. Palumbo says.Cost and educationThats expensive, and not just because of the hospital bill. For each pedestrian or bicyclist killed in a traffic accident, the economic cost is about $4.1 million, according to figures determined by the National Safety Council. Even for injuries that do not incapacitate the victim, the cost per accident averages about $53,000. Those numbers take into account the cost of the accident itself and the loss of a productive work life in part or full. Ms. Jacksons cost yet to be determined is one more avoidable run-in between a motor vehicle and a bicycle that suggests two needs, say advocates of safer and complete streets. First is the desperate need to fit and retrofit roadways to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians. Equally important is the need for drivers and cyclists both to exhibit a goingforward sympathy and respect for each other. Thats something they might acquire through education, suggests Ms. Avola, in a note to Collier County Commissioner Georgia Hiller. Proper facilities for cyclists and pedestrians (off-road, multi-use pathways, bike lanes and sidewalks in a complete transportation network) are part of the solution, but education is just as vital to knock Florida out of the number one spot for killing cyclists and pedestrians, she says. For her part, Ms. Jackson, who has lived and ridden her bicycle in Naples for four years, is both generous in her assessment of the efforts of county officials to establish opportunities for bicyclists and pedestrians, and realistic about the results. I do believe they do a good job (planning and building) bike paths, she says. But theyre not all connected. Its kind of choppy. Its hari-kari (like ritual suicide) until you get to the next smooth stretch. Statistics bear out the hari-kari estimate of conditions. In 2010, the Collier County Sheriffs Office investigated 84 crashes between bicycles and motor vehicles, and 54 accidents in which pedestrians were hit, says Michelle Batten, a CCSO spokeswoman. Then it got worse. In 2011, the CCSO investigated traffic crashes involving 99 bicyclists and 49 pedestrians. The two-year total is 284, and that does not include crashes investigated by the Naples police, the Florida Highway Patrol or Marco Island police.The official effortFor their part, officials have capitalized on federal, state and local money to create a significant web of bicycle facilities thats the word they use to describe bike-accessible sidewalks, paths that run along or near roads and so-called greenways (paths that are not next to roads). Weve built 133 sidewalk miles and more than 16 miles of greenways, says Connie Deane, community liaison in the Growth Management Division of Collier County. One of the visions is to have more of these facilities and to connect them all, eventually, she adds. Two projects underway now are set to be complete late in 2013: A route along Collier Boulevard from Davis Boulevard to the Golden Gate main canal that merges with existing paths, and Miles of sidewalk and pathway along Oil Well Road from Immokalee Road to Everglades Boulevard, and from Oil Well Grade Road to Ave Maria Boulevard. Additionally, planners meet March 30 to begin a yearlong research effort to lay out the future, says Sue Faulkner, a principal planner for the Collier County Metropolitan Planning Organization. Now is the chance for Jane and John Q. Public to help shape that future, Ms. Faulkner says. Were going to begin working with ad hoc committees citizens agencies throughout the county who might have a perspective to contribute to development of a new plan. That new plan will identify projects they want to pursue and their vision for what the connections will be. Perhaps easier said than done. Lucie Ayer, executive director of the MPO, says that politics and strong opinions play a constant role in changing both the roadways and the culture of thought about the rights of bicyclists, especially in private neighborhoods such as the ones flanking Vanderbilt Drive. There, residents have fought a bikepath plan for which funds are already available that would connect their neighborhood with Bonita Estates in Lee County, allowing bicyclists, runners, walkers and all other foot or pedal traffic safe access to both communities. We encounter this all the time, Ms. Ayer reports. There are always competing priorities. Its pretty common, especially when you try to make improvements through areas populated by private residents. Darla Letourneau, director of the nonprofit Bike Walk Lee (www.bikewalklee.org), encouraged Collier County commissioners to push the project forward by arguing both safety and economics in a February letter to Com-CYCLINGFrom page 1 OSWALDO PADILLA / FLORIDA WEEKLY Looking toward the east from the southwest corner of the intersection of Vanderbilt Beach Road and U.S. 41.
missioner Hiller (Commissioner Hiller did not respond to a request for comments by press time). Collier County is in an enviable position you have the funds on hand now from the developer to pay for the needed 12-foot standard multi-use pathway, Ms. Letourneau wrote. Not moving forward with the pathway as planned will cost future taxpayers of Collier County more money in inevitable retrofits, and will deny current residents and visitors an adequate and safe multi-use path system. One of the key principles of complete streets is to do it right the first time, she added. There is nothing more costly on transportation projects than not providing for anticipated use and having to come back later and pay 10 times more to retrofit the project. Needed: mutual respect But retrofitting the attitudes of everyone in the driving-bicycling community might be the most challenging project of all. Whether individuals are guiding a ton or two of combustion-powered motor vehicle or a few pounds of pedal-powered bicycle, the way they think about each other can probably both prevent injuries and save lives, suggests Ms. Avola at the Naples Pathways Coalition. The lack of regard for people who have been injured or killed walking or biking really surprises me, she says, reacting to the flurry of online comments about Ms. Jacksons accident that criticized both Ms. Jackson and bicyclists in general. But it cuts both ways, Ms. Avola adds. Bicyclists sometimes show little sympathy for drivers, and the attitudes together become dangerous. In an e-mail letter to Commissioner Hiller last week, Ron Tougas, who walks the family dog with his wife each morning, made these observations: (Bicyclists) around our Pine Ridge area are blatantly ignoring all normal rules of the road. In particular, I might point to the intersection of West and Carica (south end), where there is a school bus stop and where vehicles on Carica have stop signs and those on West dont Every morning around 7:45, a group of speed bikers, ranging in numbers from eight to 20, come along Carica (heading SE) and turn west on West and never stop. At about that same time, the school bus passes, heading east on West. On several occasions I have wondered if there might be a problem or collision because the bikers hardly slow down, passing through the stop sign as they turn right onto West; one of the lead bikers usually yells clear, giving the rest a go-ahead to proceed at speed. Occasionally weve also seen close calls with local trash collector trucks.Ms. Avola acknowledges that bicyclists and drivers alike make mistakes and can hold grudges. And that has to stop.Instead, she advises, we need to educate cyclists, pedestrians and motorists to help us all do the right things more of the time to reduce accidents and reduce the friction between cyclists and pedestrians. Ms. Ayer at the MPO advocates both a personal ethic and education. The ethic is empathy. As planners, we want to do the appropriate thing for bikers who can ride fast. Their preference is to be away from the sidewalk, she says. Statistics show that sidewalks are the most dangerous place for bicyclists, since many have been killed or injured by traffic emerging suddenly and drivers who dont spot them. But sometimes, adds Ms. Ayer, you cannot provide the wider pathways. If nothing else is available, shouldnt everybody be considerate of other people, and share? In the end, that may prove to be the most important question, and the clearest answer. COURTESY PHOTOElayne Jackson before the accident.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 A11 Big money paintingsThe royal family of Qatar, apparently striving for art-world credibility, purchased a Paul Cezanne painting (The Card Players) last year for the equivalent of about $250 million, which is twice as much as the previous most-expensive painting sold for. (Qatar is vying with the United Arab Emirates to become the Middle Easts major intellectual hub.) At the same time that Qatars purchase was made public in February, artwork of the probable value of about $200 million became news in reports of the imminent Facebook initial public offering. Graffiti artist (muralist) David Choe stood to make about that amount because he took stock instead of money to paint the lewd themes on the walls of Facebooks first offices. Even though Choe was quoted as saying, originally, that he found the whole idea of Facebook ridiculous and pointless, his shares today are reportedly worth up to one quarter of 1 percent of the company.The entrepreneurial spirit Last year, the Cape Town, South Africa, gentlemens club Mavericks began selling an Alibi line of fragrances designed for men who need excuses for coming home late. For example, as men come through the door, they could splash on I Was Working Late (to reek of coffee and cigarettes) or My Car Broke Down (evoking fuel, burned rubber and grease). White supremacist Richard Treis, 38, was arrested in February in St. Louis, along with his alleged partner, black gang member Robert Biz Swinney, 22, and charged with running a huge methamphetamine operation. The two, who had met at a prison halfway house, had allegedly meshed their unique talents Mr. Treis as a meth cook and Mr. Swinney as a skilled street seller who recruited people to buy restricted pseudoephedrine products from pharmacies. Said a deputy, They put away their differences to get the job done. Cutting-edge science (A) growing number of scientists are at work on biocomputer models based on movements of slime to solve complex-systems problems, according to a December report in Londons Daily Telegraph. Though slime molds are single-cell organisms lacking a brain, said professor Toshiyuki Nakagaki of Japans Future University Hakodate, they somehow can organize themselves to create the most direct route through mazes in order to find food. Said professor Atsushi Tero, of Kyushu University, ordinary computers are not so good at finding such ideal routes because of the quantity of calculations required, but slime molds seem to flow in an impromptu manner and gradually find the best routes. Claire Osborn, 37, of Coventry, England, was diagnosed in October with an aggressive, inoperable throat-mouth cancer and given a 50 percent chance of survival. However, less than a month later, during a severe coughing spell, she actually coughed out the entire tumor in two pieces. Subsequent tests revealed no trace of cancer in her body. (Doctors hypothesized that, fortuitously, the tumor was growing on a weak stalk that was overcome by the force of the cough.) In January, doctors at North Carolina State University performed kneereplacement surgery on a cancer-stricken house cat. Such surgery on dogs has been done, but because of cats smaller bones and joints, doctors had to use micro techniques usually employed on humans. Fine points of the lawThe Houston Funding debt collection company in Houston, Texas, had fired receptionist Donnicia Venters shortly after she returned from maternity leave when she announced that she intended to breastfeed her child and needed space in the office to pump her breast milk. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Houston Funding for illegal discrimination based on pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, but in February, federal judge Lynn Hughes (Mr. Lynn Hughes) rejected the EEOCs reasoning. The law does not, he wrote, cover lactation discrimination. Leading economic indicators In an incident reported in February by the Indo-Asian News Service, a Pakistan International Airlines captain made a revenue-enhancing decision for his full flight PK 303 from Lahore to Karachi. Two overbooked passengers would not have to make alternative arrangements if they accepted seats for the 640-mile flight in the planes restrooms. Real estate reassessments hit Pittsburgh like a bombshell in December when county officials announced enhanced estimates of property value in order to raise needed tax revenue. In the first wave of assessments (which engendered criticism countywide, according to a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette story), a real estate attorney who lives in the Mount Washington neighborhood was stunned to find his condominium apartment had jumped $55,000 in value, now worth $228,700 and, worse, his private parking space on the ground floor of the building, previously valued at $5,000, now worth $287,800. In December, National Geographic lamented that the number of South Africas rhinoceroses killed by poaching increased by a third in 2011, to 443, as a response to the booming street price of rhino horns. MSNBC reported that the horns market price soared to about $65,000 a kilogram, making (them) more expensive than gold, platinum, and in many cases, cocaine. The reason for the price is an escalating, though science-free, belief in Asia that rhino horn powder can cure cancer.

Survivors share their stories for Holocaust Memorial Week BY FRANCESCA DONLANSpecial to Florida WeeklyEdison State College hosts the 16th annual Dr. Talbot Spivak Holocaust Memorial Week on the Fort Myers campus March 26-30. The event is named in memory of the professor whose determination to teach the lessons of the Holocaust both in and outside the classroom inspired him to organize the first Holocaust week at ESC back in 1996. Built around the theme of Surviving, this years programs focus on giving everyone in Southwest Florida the opportunity to listen to, interact with and learn from Holocaust survivors living among us. Nearly a dozen survivors will talk about their experiences as part of a roundtable program, and several of them will also give informal presentations on their own throughout the week. The roundtable is set for 12:30 p.m. Thursday, March 29. Participants will include survivors Rene Beddouk, Anneliese Salamon, Gerda Friedeman, Anatole Kurdsjuk, Lore and Fred Rosenstrauch, Jacque and Sabine Van Dam, and Benno Beninga. This is an opportunity that is not going to exist in a few years, says JoAnn Lewin, co-chair of ESCs Holocaust Memorial Week Committee. These people are so alive and resilient and inspiring. They teach us that these sorts of things can happen to anybody if nobody speaks up to defend them. One of the survivors, Ms. Salamon, now 82, was 12 years old when she and her Czechoslovakian family were forced into boxcars and transported to the Theresienstadt concentration/transit camp in Czechoslovakia, where they lived for three years. In addition to participating in the roundtable discussion, Ms. Salamon will talk at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 27. Other Holocaust Memorial Week programs include a screening and discussion of the film, Schindlers List, and lectures by ESC psychology professor Frank Kohn about Psychological Aspects of the Holocaust and history professor Mark Cole about Hunger and the Holocaust. The arts are also an integral part of Holocaust Memorial Week. Cantorial soloist Lawrence Dermer will perform, and humanities professor Wendy Chase will speak on Nihilism, Realism and Fantasies of Revenge: Addressing Nazi Guilt and Justice in Contemporary American Cinema. A student art reception will precede the presentation of Project Tolerance, a collaboration of paintings by Sanibel artist Myra Roberts and writings by Ella Nayor. In addition, the Holocaust boxcar from the Holocaust Museum and Education Center of Southwest Florida will visit the ESC campus in Fort Myers. The boxcar will be open to the public beginning Sunday, March 25; volunteer students and community members will conduct tours through the boxcar. All Holocaust Memorial Week events are free and open to the public. The full schedule is available at www.edison.edu/ holocaust. For more information, contact Holocaust Memorial Committee co-chairs Rona Axelrod at 432-9437 or email@example.com or Ms. Lewin at 489-9429 or jlewin@edison. edu.

Museum exhibit pays tributes to Argentinas Disappeared SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDesaparecidos: A Tribute to Argentinas Disappeared, an exhibit of photographs by Minnesota-based artist Sylvia Horwitz, is at the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida through April 6. The exhibit is a tribute to those who were made to disappear during Argentinas military regime from 1976 to 1983. Under this dictatorship, an estimated 30,000 student activists, young professionals, writers and artists were tortured and killed as political prisoners. Almost all of them were under age 40; a disproportionate number were Jewish. Almost as soon as the disappearances began, the mothers began to search for their children and for answers. The demonstrations of this group of determined women, known as Mothers of the Plaza, have been ongoing since 1977. Ms. Horwitz chronicles the stories of the Jewish mothers and grandmothers who are still protesting after 35 years, marching every week on the Plaza de Mayo for memory, truth and justice. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida presents Desaparecidos as part of its mission to promote respect and understanding by teaching the history and lessons of the Holocaust. In 1941, the Nazi regime made suspected subversives in Holland, Belgium and France disappear under the Night and Fog Decree. Countless other governments have used similar tactics when faced with opposition within their countries. Ms. Horwitzs work was funded in part by Rimon, The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council and the Howard B. Brin Jewish Arts Endowment Fund.Visit the museumThe Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida is at 4760 Tamiami Trail N., Naples. Hours are 12:30-5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is $8 for adults, $3 for ages 12-18. In connection with the current exhibit of Ms. Horwitzs photographs, at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 26, the museum presents a panel discussion about Argentina in the years leading up to and under the military junta. The museum also presents a program about Argentina and genocide around the world by Ellen Kennedy, executive director of World Without Genocide, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 3, in the Community Room at the Naples Daily News. Admission to both of the above programs is free; donations are welcome. For more information, call the museum at 263-9200 or visit www.holocaustmuseumswfl.org.

For most of these kids, this will be the only food they get at home, Mary Pierce, an Avalon Elementary teacher, observed. Statistics show that approximately 30 percent of Collier County households with children experience food insecurity a general anxiety about where their next meals will come from. In addition, 49 percent of the people receiving food assistance from local food banks are children, and more than 61 percent of the children enrolled in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade in Collier County are defined as economically needy and receive free lunch. At Avalon Elementary, 93 percent of children are in the high-need category. NCEF trustees are passionate about finding a solution to childhood hunger in Collier County, said John Scot Mueller, NCEF trustee and vice chair of the foundations grant committee.

The initiative began one year ago, after NCEFs 2011 Naples Winter Wine Festival raised $630,000 through a fund-a-need auction lot and began partnering with Harry Chapin Food Bank. Over the past year, 68 food deliveries have been made to schools and child-focused agencies in areas with the most underserved and at-risk children in the county. NCEFs mission is to create and expand charitable programs serving underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County. The foundation supports more than 20 grantees and provides grants for long-term strategic initiatives focused on childrens early learning, medical/oral health, out-ofschool programs, behavioral health and childhood hunger. NCEFs 69 trustees govern the foundation and host the Naples Winter Wine Festival, the most successful charity wine auction in the world. The 2013 festival will be held Jan. 25-27. For more information, visit www.napleswinefestival.com. The Harry Chapin Food Bank solicits, collects and stores food for distribution to families in need through a network of nonprofit agencies in Collier, Lee, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades counties. Those agencies in turn provide food to more than 30,000 people monthly. In the past calendar year, Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed more than 13.7 million pounds of food and other grocery items valued at more than $22.5 million.

Northern Trust was this years presenting sponsor, and Jeannie Smith was the event chair. The signature fundraiser returned to its original site the Conservancy of Southwest Florida Nature Center campus after being held offsite for three years because of extensive renovations underway on the campus. Although work is ongoing, enough progress has been made to allow the event to return to its roots, where tents housed the evenings elegant, eco-friendly paradise with land-themed dcor, native plants, sustainable materials, low-energy lighting, recycling and waste reduction. As part of the program, the 14 members of the Conservancys Capital Campaign Cabinet were honored as the 2012 Eagle Award winners. The Eagle Award is the highest honor presented annually by the Conservancy to recognize an individual or group whose work and actions protect the natural environment and quality of life in Southwest Florida. The evenings proceeds included a $105,000 bid during the live auction for a one-of-a-kind Florida panther pendant from Port Royal Jewelers.

WALK THE WALKS blessed mother, she shares, noting that she attends daily Mass at Saint William Catholic Church. After visiting the Assumption Grotto Church in Michigan, where she says she and a friend were healed of their ills, she felt compelled to form a charity and help the people of Nicaragua.In 1998, she formed Casa Jacinta and Francisco, a Naples-based charity that supports 1,600 children in three orphanages, four schools and a new vocational school run by Monsignor Bosco Vivas Robelo. She visits several times a year and is particularly proud of the new trade school, where students learn skills related to agriculture, carpentry, cooking and becoming a seamstress, among others. She and her husband Jerry received financial support for the school from their longtime friends Brian and Sheila OConnor, who live in Ireland.I always pray for donors, Ms. Thirion confides. Its not easy to raise money, especially in this economy.One way the charity generates funds is through an annual automobile raffle. Currently, the Thirions are selling tickets for a new 2012 Lexus sport sedan. Tickets are $100 each or three for $250. The drawing will be March 27 at Saint William Catholic Church, which supports the Thirions mission work. As a Catholic parish, were committed to the work of peace and justice and to assisting those in need not only at home but as far as we can, says Michael Mahr, pastoral associate. Were very happy that a parish member is doing this work out in the world. Father John Fitch has traveled with Ms. Thirion to Nicaragua and came back with glowing remarks about the work being done there, he adds.

Patient safety remains foremost in the NCH cultureBe aware for safe care. Thats a theme we share throughout the NCH system, as we strive to be a no-guilt culture where patient safety is a daily way of life for every one of us. To that end, our Patient Safety Awareness task force, led by Associate Chief Nursing Officer Laurie Zone-Smith, R.N., and Risk Manager Barb Bixby, R.N., recently participated in Patient Safety Awareness Week. Among the weeks activities was a Starbucks-like Safe Care Caf, where we reviewed our ongoing hand-washing initiative with a glow germ demonstration that involved applying an invisible, nontoxic material to hands to simulate contact with germs and then washing our hands as we normally do. By placing our hands under a glow light, we were then able to see how much, if any, of the germs were left behind. More than 95 percent of us have completed a hospital-wide hand washing initiative.Attaining a no-guilt culture means knowing whenever and wherever we can improve. Nearly half of national healthcare workers feel their mistakes and unfortunate events are held against them, according to a recent American Medical News report. In our own confidential patient survey last year, 97 percent of the 544 respondents rated NCH very good or excellent. With representing a possible perfect score for patient safety, we recorded a 3.96. We are repeating this confidential inquiry this year and are hopeful for improvement. I will share the results. Meanwhile, we are focusing on areas for improvement in patient safety. Our profession has been criticized in the past for not being proactive, transparent or self-correcting. We are doing much to counteract that impression. For example, the Florida Hospital Association, where I am privileged to participate on the quality committee, reported that more than 25 percent of Floridas 400 hospitals have participated in a collaborative effort to decrease readmissions. That resulted in 11 percent fewer readmissions statewide, saving $25 million. Additionally, 67 Florida hospitals are participating in a national effort to decrease surgical site infections, prevent urinary tract infections post-op and improve both colectomy (bowel resection) outcomes and surgical o utcomes in the elderly. Another state program in which NCH was an initial member targets the prevention of blood stream infections. Proudly, NCH has not had a central line infection for many months in the following units North Naples ICU (10 months), progressive care and surgical ICU (15 months), downtown ICU (22 months) and cardiovascular unit (25 months). One of our most important objectives is to make NCH safer for our patients. Achieving this mandate not only helps us save lives, it also helps all of us feel better about what we do every day, and burnishes our reputation as a nationally ranked health-care provider. All of this underscores the recognition of Southwest Florida as a medical tourism attraction, helping our economy recover. Indeed, being aware for safe care helps us all. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System. HEALTHY LIVINGHow often should women have bone tests? SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYExperts say that older women should have regular bone density tests to screen for osteoporosis. But its been unclear how often to repeat the tests. A new study suggests that women with healthy bone density on their first test might wait 15 years before getting rescreened. More than 40 million people nationwide either have osteoporosis or are at increased risk for broken bones because of low bone mineral density,k called osteopenia. Osteoporosis is often called a silent disease because it usually develops slowly and without symptoms until a fracture occurs. When early screening detects low bone mineral density, patients can try lifestyle changes or therapies to protect their bones. To help develop guidance on how often to repeat bone density tests, NIH-funded scientists studied nearly 5,000 women ages 67 and older. When the study began, none of the women had osteoporosis, hip or spine fractures or past treatment with osteoporosis medications.The researchers found that less than 1 percent of women who initially had normal bone mineral density went on to develop osteoporosis during the study. Only 5 percent of those with mildly low bone density at the start made the transition to osteoporosis.If a womans bone density at age 67 is very good, then she doesnt need to be rescreened in two years or three years, because were not likely to see much change, says lead researcher Dr. Margaret Gourlay of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our study found it would take about 15 years for 10 percent of women with normal or mildly low bone mineral density to develop osteoporosis. That was longer than we expected, and its great news for this group of women. Age, past fractures, medications and specific diseases can increase osteoporosis risk. These factors also affect how often a woman should be tested. w k i c u a allenWEISSallen.email@example.com

BY GINA SPADAFORI Universal UclickWhile I like the great outdoors well enough in theory, I dont like mess-hall dining, community toilets and showers, or sleeping on cots. And yet, last fall, I signed up to go camping because of my dogs. Our destination was a camp specifically planned for the happiness of dogs and those who love them. Despite my reluctance to go (I was talked into it by friends), I now look back on the experience as four of the happiest days of my life. Joyful dogs, relaxed people and lots of clear, pine-scented air in a drop-dead gorgeous lakeside setting, And while my cabin wasnt fancy, it was more than comfortable enough, and the food wasnt bad at all. What did my dogs think of being offleash with other friendly, well-socialized dogs? Of nonstop swimming in a crystalclear alpine lake? Of massages, hikes, games and even crafts? You wouldnt have to know canine body language to have read the joy in their bouncy steps, or the nonstop doggy grins on their faces. So what, exactly, is a dog camp? Nothing less than the perfect blend of dogs (and people) who dont get near enough exercise and campground owners grateful to get a little extra income at the beginning or the end of their normal summer season. The first dog camp was Vermonts Camp Gone to the Dogs (camp-gonetothe-dogs.com), founded a couple decades ago and still a popular destination for dog lovers from all over the country. The idea was quickly picked up by other entrepreneurs, including the folks behind Camp Unleashed (campunleashed.com), whose California camp was my home for a few days last fall. Camp Unleashed has three locations and is scouting for more, with established camps in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, in Asheville, N.C., and the new camp near Sequoia National Forest, in the mountains east of Fresno, Calif. Dog camp activities can typically be as organized or as relaxed as you choose. There are classes taught by experts in everything from trick-training to agility to reliable recalls, short rambles for dogs who arent all that fit (or people in the same category) or long, brisk hikes for those who can handle them. For the more contemplative, there are plenty of benches near meadows or the lake for thinking or reading while enjoying the view. My dogs and I mixed classes with lake time, and I doubt my retrievers were ever fully dry the entire time. Even my 14-year-old deaf Sheltie enjoyed just walking around off-leash, and he really enjoyed getting a massage, one of the few modestly priced options that werent part of the all-inclusive cost (which varies by camp, but is typically less than a nice hotel per night) for meals, simple lodging (some camps offer upscale options for a higher fee) and a wide array of classes and activities. The happiness I took away from Camp Unleashed lasted for weeks. Even now, months later, I cant think of those days without smiling. And while I am signed up for Camp Unleashed (campunleashed.com) again this fall, Ill also be looking at other operations to add more exposure to my newfound love of dog camps, such as Camp Winnaribbun (campw.com) at Lake Tahoe, Calif., and the new Yellowstone Dog Camp (yellowstonedogsports.com) in Red Lodge, Mont. (Other camps can be found advertised in magazines, such as The Bark.) And yes, I do find my enthusiasm surprising. I guess now that Ive been bitten by the dog camp bug, I just cant wait to ruff it with my happy pack again. PET TALESRuff ItSpring and fall dog camps offer off-leash joy to man and beast To adopt or foster a petThis weeks pets are from Collier County Domestic Animal Services.

Mr. Spock, Star Trek Dark energy is real. Press Release, May 2011, WiggleZ Team, Australia Had just settled down for a long winters nap when out on the lawn there arose such a clatter. I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, to re open the shutter and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow gave the lustre of midday to objects below. The Night Before Christmas, Clement Clarke Moore/Henry Livingston My mind to your mind; your thoughts to my thoughts. Vulcan mind meld, Star Trek That is one of the great difficulties in experiencing the unconscious that one identifies with it and becomes a fool. You must not identify with the unconscious; you must keep outside, detached, and observe objectively what happens ... it is exceedingly difficult to accept such a thing, because we are so imbued with the fact that our unconscious is our own my unconscious, his unconscious, her unconscious and our prejudice is so strong that we have the greatest trouble disidentifying. C.G. Jung It is ironic that Einsteins most creative work, the general theory of relativity, should boil down to conceptualizing space as a medium when his original premise (in special relativity) was that no such medium existed . It turns out that such matter exists... Subsequent studies with large particle accelerators have now led us to understand that space is more like a piece of window glass than ideal Newtonian emptiness. It is filled with stuff that is normally transparent but can be made visible by hitting it sufficiently hard to knock out a part. Robert B. Laughlin, Nobel LaureatePhysics, Stanford University I endeavor to be accurate. Mr. Spock, Star Trek Yes, the gift: It has been given and it has been received. Mixing and matching. Of that much there is clarity.

Now, please dont mistake my uncontainable exuberance for hubris. Silence is not the only humility. Perhaps quietus is neither meek nor modest, but merely an analogue for arrogance. Who knows? Because, you see, I see the unopened box, clear as the day sky. And then there is opened box, splayed and deribboned, pouring forth inner wrappings, all shiny.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 We are a direct lender offering the following loan products: Making dreams come true... SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! Investors should know if they are buying or being sold investment services. Are you, the investment client, doing the buying? Or are they, the money managers or advisers, doing the selling? If you dont know where you are in this process, you might want to slow down, rethink what is happening and/or get a friend or colleague to accompany you on the investment dance floor. In my opinion, at minimum, you need to figure out where you stand in this process. Preferably, you, the prospective investment client, need to be in the position of buying rather than being the object of the sale. Buying gives you the power to make a much better decision. These dynamics are true whether you are buying widgets, horses or financial products/services; they are unquestionably understood as the dynamics in buying a car. Lets take a look at the underpinnings of the sale or the purchase. They are two sides of one coin but often one partys agenda is more strongly operative and drives the dynamics of a transaction. First, at the retail level (and not the institutional level), the sale in investment products and services heavily depends upon inter-personal elements. Do I like the person? is the most basic question. Another is, Can I trust the person? as if your feelings are an answer to that question. Followed by, What does their office look like? as if brick and/or high-storied is better. These are intensely sensory elements that people in sales can work to their selling advantage; someone selling to you will try to spend as much time with you as possible to create as many points of sensory contact as possible. Often, fundamental understanding and the merits of their products and services get lost in the fact-finding process. Face time translates into reassuring time, creating ties, cementing the bond; somehow the relationship quickly slides into documents for you to sign. To make it easier for you (and easier for them to close a sale) the documents are already completed with your information and just need your signature. None of these steps are bad. Collectively, these are steps for smooth sale-ing. My thoughts are that you should be completing your own paperwork or alongside the financial adviser; it forces you to understand what you are getting into much better. Also, if the paper work is so overwhelming and you dont understand it, you shouldnt have it made easier for your signing you should take steps to understand it. Although document review is bothersome, you should want the product or service sufficiently that the paperwork is worth every bit of the effort. The irony about most disclosures, caveats and descriptions is that they were created to protect the client and yet the client doesnt want to take the time and effort to read them. The truth is that much in the world of traditional investing is familiar, the same, generic, etc.; it is not an out of the box approach. So people tend to focus on fees as if low fees make for a good return. If you are really interested in low fees, then buy no-load indices and skip the managed route. If you are going the managed route, then get something that looks as if it is managed... not just financial planning softwares allocation into funds or ETFs. Find out what the manager is good at and give an allocation to their area of competency. Also, understand that as you increase the amount of individual stock holdings, you eventually approach a market basket and market returns and you might not need a manager for that. Here is what a buy process might look and feel like. First, you dont and shouldnt feel rushed. You dont want to feel as if this (this manager or product) is so great that you have to get it done yesterday. If it is a really great idea today, it will be a great idea tomorrow and the days after. And you dont want to feel as if you have to close because of a scarcity factor, as in there is only a $500,000 allotment left or the fund is being closed to new investors in a few days. These all might be true, but more often than not, they are misleading statements intended to get you to close. Second, you have done your research on the people with whom you are investing and you have done due diligence that these, albeit imperfect individuals, will not walk away with your money, take undue risks, etc. Third, make sure the manager switch is not just to get out of another place that currently holds your funds. Fourthly, the old expression of sleep on it idea should be operative and maybe it should be recast as: take a weeks vacation from the idea and see if seems as good seven days later. You are entrusting your funds or management of your funds to someone other than the persons who worked hard to earn those monies. The persons might be you; it might be your deceased parents, or deceased spouse, etc. and some of these folks toiled for those funds even if you didnt yourself. I think you want to be doing the buying and that means understanding it all and taking the time that suits you to make the decision. It is very difficult to select a manager in the best of circumstances. It is good to talk to and consider allocations among several managers, especially allocations to managers with specific expertise that traditional portfolio managers might well lack. There is a substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options on futures contracts. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 THE MOTLEY FOOL Warrens WordsWarren Buffett released his annual letter to shareholders last month. Legions of investors eagerly await it each year, as it not only reports on the health of his company, Berkshire Hathaway (its in the pink), but also offers valuable insights on the overall economy and investing. Here are a few nuggets from it: On investing: investing is forgoing consumption now in order to have the ability to consume more at a later date. On value: The logic is simple: If you are going to be a net buyer of stocks in the future you are hurt when stocks rise. You benefit when stocks swoon. Emotions, however, too often complicate the matter: Most people take comfort in seeing stock prices advance. These shareholders resemble a commuter who rejoices after the price of gas increases, simply because his tank contains a days supply. On the importance of buying at a good price: The first law of capital allocation whether the money is slated for acquisitions What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Mock Some StocksQWhats a mock portfolio? M.R., Port Charlotte, Fla.AMock portfolios are terrific for new investors and those who want to test investing strategies. With them, you go through the motions of investing, stopping short of actually plunking down your hard-earned cash. Research companies that interest you, decide which ones youd buy, and then set up a pretend portfolio, either on paper or online (at sites like finance.yahoo.com/portfolios and dailyfinance.com/portfolios.) Record details such as when you bought the shares and at what price. Then track your performance over time and see if you beat the market. An online portfolio is also a good way to keep track of your watch list of promising stocks. ***QIs it better for a companys projected price-to-earnings ratio (PPE) to be higher or lower than the current price-to-earnings ratio (P/E)? C.F., Toledo, OhioAThe P/E is simply a companys current stock price divided by its earnings per share (EPS) for the trailing 12 months. Thus, its based on past results. The projected, or forward, P/E divides the stock price by next years estimated EPS. Investors like to see a forward P/E lower than the current P/E because it means earnings are expected to rise. Imagine Scruffys Chicken Shack (ticker: BUKBUK) trading at $48 per share with EPS over the past year of $2. Its P/E would be 48 divided by 2, or 24. If Scruffys is expected to rake in EPS of $3 next year, its PPE would be 48 divided by 3, or 16. The lower number is due to Scruffys expected growth. Remember, though, that earnings can be manipulated and estimates can be proven wrong. So dont make decisions based on these numbers alone. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrichor share repurchases is that what is smart at one price is dumb at another. On predicting turnarounds: Last year, I told you that a housing recovery will probably begin within a year or so. I was dead wrong. (Buffett is famous for his candor. Few CEOs point out or discuss their errors.) On housings improving health: (The) supply/demand equation is now reversed: Every day we are creating more households than housing units. I believe pundits will be surprised at how far unemployment drops once that happens. They will then reawake to what has been true since 1776: Americas best days lie ahead. On Berkshires strength and ambition: We now have eight subsidiaries that would each be included in the Fortune 500 were they stand-alone companies. That leaves only 492 to go. On gold: Gold has two significant shortcomings, being neither of much use nor procreative. (Buffett famously prefers investing in companies, which create value and grow.) Learn more by reading dozens of past letters at www.berkshirehathaway.com. Whipped PotatoesBack in the 1970s, inflation was so high that commodities made more sense than stocks as investments. A friend and I pulled together $5,000, formed a partnership and opened a commodity account. We made a little in beans, then we lost a little in bellies, and then started buying potato contracts. Spuds went up, and then sharply down. For those who dont know, its possible to lose far more than your original investment in futures contracts, due to the leverage involved. Its also possible that you cant buy or sell when the market is going against you. We ended up lucky, losing very little. Later, I learned that the potato market had been manipulated by a potato baron. The moral of this story: When the elephants fight, only the mice get trampled. R.T., onlineThe Fool Responds: You were indeed lucky. Commodities have severely burned many investors, which is why most of us should avoid them. If youre intrigued by commodities because they might make you rich, remember that you can build great wealth with less risk in strong blue-chip stocks. The Motley Fool TakeThe Next IBM?Shares of Dell (Nasdaq: DELL) dropped recently, when the computer builder reported disappointing quarterly earnings. Investors must not have noticed that management has high earnings expectations for next year, and that Dells strategy is firing on most of its cylinders. Dell has lost its grip on the skimpyprofit-margin PC market it once ruled. New competition is coming up from the likes of Acer and Lenovo, comp anies close to Asian manufacturing centers.

Every acquisition Dell made in the last few years has moved the company closer to this ideal. In 1993, IBM was a struggling PC maker with a $20 billion market cap. Six years later, a strategy shift into the current enterprise computing buffet had produced a 1,300 percent return. Its no wonder that Dell and others want to copy that performance. Theres no free lunch on Wall Street, but short-term haircuts in the face of properly executed long-term plans often mark buying opportunities.

BEFORE AFTER Love Your Kitchen Again! and toners is a major line item in our news department budget, says Mr. Pontius. In just four months, the iPads have probably already paid for themselves. Prior to purchasing the 10 tablets four per studio and two as reserves the broadcaster printed four 100-page scripts for each of its 18 daily Mondaythrough-Friday newscasts. It now prints just one, which the director files then archives, says Mr. Pontius. Over the course of a year, were going to save on paper costs and save a few trees, he says. Its just a better way to do it; its just good technology. Despite the technological revolution that introduced the iPad and rival tablets two years ago, many businesses had to wait until industry-specific applications were developed. That only happened recently for electronic news programming, says Mr. Pontius. There were some technological challenges at first, he says. We started experimenting with the iPads four months ago and finally cut the cord and started using them exclusively eight weeks ago. The devices provide more flexibility, allowing the director to make on-air changes in story sequences that are instantly updated on the anchors iPad. Tablet-toting anchors are no longer chained to the news desk and views of the teleprompter. They can move throughout the studio for different shots. Mr. Pontius says ABC and NBCs onair talent tested two products. They liked the iPad interface better, he says. All the scripts are loaded onto the iPad. Its light, and frankly, its easier to use.High-tech real estate sellingDeveloper and homebuilder WCI Communities equipped its construction and production managers with seven touch-screen Samsung Galaxy tablets in October. The technology allows the employees to ditch the three-ring binders and building plans they often carried around, says Tom Fichter, vice president of construction. They can now dial into the Bonita Springs companys server to access real-time data, including floor plans, change orders, customer finishes and color selections, and vendor delivery and construction schedules. It streamlines the building process, improves efficiency and saves paper, says Mr. Fichter. They can schedule jobs in real time. They dont have to physically write things down then go back to the office and update the information from a laptop or desktop. They can reference everything from the web through the tablet. A camera feature also allows managers to upload construction photos to MyWCI, the companys iPad application that lets homebuyers monitor the progress of their home, schedule tee times or dining reservations and check out clubhouse calendars. It works well for the demographic of our customer, who are usually not local, says Mr. Fichter. They love seeing pictures of their homes under construction.One gadget for everythingTom Cappiello, vice president of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Punta Gorda, received his iPad as a birthday gift from his wife in October 2010, when the device was first introduced. He immediately traded it in for a souped-up version that gave him 64 gigabytes (hes used just two gigs) and the ability to dial in anywhere. I wanted to be able to take it on the road and not have to worry about finding Wi-Fi, he says. With my data package, I can get data wherever I am. I have all my music on it and can do streaming video so I can watch movies if Im flying or traveling. Mr. Cappiello uses his iPad to write a weekly column for the Sunday paper, access work e-mail, check the stock market and receive news alerts germane to his profession. He also uses a GPS program that provides real-time traffic alerts and is looking forward to Morgan Stanleys introduction of an application that will let him access his office desktop from his iPad. I will be able to go to a clients home and look up accounts in real time, he says. My iPad is pretty indispensible. Im never out of touch and theres no question its improved my efficiency. Tina Matte, a partner at Gravina, Smith, Matte & Arnold, a Fort Myers marketing and public relations agency, likes the connectivity of the iPad; she can be online anytime, anywhere at airports, in the car or while attending her childrens sporting events. I take mine into almost all client meetings now to take notes, Ms. Matte says. I can easily email meeting notes with assignments to staff before I even leave the meeting. It really improves productivity, communication and coordination and I dont lose pieces of paper in big notebooks anymore. The iPad is fabulous.If they could only cookThe servers at Komoon Thai, Sushi & Ceviche, a Naples restaurant specializing in Thai, Japanese and Peruvian cuisine, use iPads and a restaurant app to take orders and swipe credit cards. Co-owner Saifon Sombun says the establishments four tablets also allow them to show indecisive or curious diners a photo of each dish. Having the iPads has improved us as a restaurant, she says. It really helps the customers, too. Orders are immediately uploaded to the kitchen, freeing the serving staff to spend more time in the dining room tending to customers needs. Upon paying, patrons can choose either a paper receipt or e-mailed copy, says Ms. Sombun. Like any new way of doing business, tablets take some getting used to, especially to those who are technology challenged or used to seeing the bigger picture. WCIs Mr. Fichter says blueprints are still indispensible for detailed dimensional references. The tablet has been a big change for some of our people who are not super computer savvy but theyre doing better, he says. Also it can be a little awkward to carry around on a construction site. The managers have bought fanny packs to keep their hands free. Wi-Fi service isnt always the best. You get a slower connection than you would if you were hard-wired into the office, says Mr. Fichter. It wasnt so much the learning curve that tripped up Mr. Cappiello but the absence of instructions manuals for most Apple products dont accompany the product; instead theyre online. iPads work with the iTunes operating system, he says. The first time I turned it on, nothing happened. I had to download iTunes to my personal computer then hook up iTunes with my iPad to activate my iPad. The biggest disadvantage for Mr. Cappiello? Youre always in touch but I really dont see a lot of disadvantages to owning one. If you need to be in touch or want to know whats going on, its fantastic. If you want to be left alone, it isnt.

Todd Kendall, director of sales f or The Lutgert C ompanies, says Tavira is drawing the attention of buyers from Southwest Florida to Canada. Our Canadian neighbors are capitalizing on their strong dollar to live in sunny Southwest Florida and look here to purchase property as an investment, Mr. Kendall says. Tavira had a year-ending sales volume of $30 million, and a record-setting 25 total sales, making it the top selling new luxury high-rise in Southwest Florida in 2011 based upon information compiled through the Multiple Listing System. Last fall, we examined strategies to motivate buyers to make purchasing decisions as the economy began to rebound, Mr. Kendall says. We adjusted the price structure to reflect the current market and included flooring and backgrounds in the purchase price along with an enclosed garage. People have clearly responded very favorably to the incentives, and we are now 50 percent sold. Tavira at Bonita Bay rises 26 stories. Residences have single-family home comforts such gas fireplaces in living rooms and screened lanais with grills and summer kitchens. Floor plans range from 3,500 square feet to 4,100 square feet of airconditioned living space. Prices begin at $1.2 million. Owners enjoy an expansive pool, poolside cabanas, steam and massage rooms and a rooftop sunset level with a bar and seating. Newly added to the lineup of building amenities is virtual golf. Residents can get in some practice swings right in the comfort and convenience of the building before heading out to the links; Bonita Bay has five championship golf courses for members. Coming soon will be a complete design center within Tavira, where residents can peruse an array of flooring and finishes in the ease and convenience of the building, saving them substantial time, which is itself considered a luxury in the fast pace of todays world. Tavira joins five other exclusi ve Lutgert Companies high-rises on an exclusive corridor in Bonita Bay. The towers dot a premium expanse overlooking a nature preserve, Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The company plans two more towers in The High-Rises at Bonita Bay. Residents can purchase memberships to have usage of the Bonita Bay clubhouse, five championship golf courses and the tennis and swim center.

The rise in home sales has led to less housing inventory, which decreased overall by 17 percent, from 9,213 in February 2011 to 7,888 in February 2012. Pricing is extremely important right now. The good news carries through for singlefamily homes and condos, as less days on the market, coupled with the price increases is leading to less inventory, Gerald Murphy, manager of Caldwell Banker, says. One of the biggest gains is a 55 percent increase in pending sales from February 2011 to February 2012 for Naples area homes priced from $500,000 to $1 million, according to the NABOR report. In February, homes in that price range took off like rockets, says Phil Wood, president and CEO of John R. Wood Realtors. The overall market experienced 8,349 closed sales for the 12 months ending February 2012, compared to 7,929 closed sales for the 12-month period ending February 2011. Price increases in certain categories of the market and falling inventory sets the stage for increased valuation, says Shelton Weeks, Ph.D., director of the Lucas Institute for Real Estate Development & Finance at Florida Gulf Coast University. View the entire NABOR report at www. NaplesArea.com. Welcome to the neighborhoods at Miromar Lakes SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMiromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club has six waterfront neighborhoods offering new home construction.

With this show it is our intention, as I believe it was in the original, to make the audience laugh, says John McKerrow, director and founder of the company, which launches its second season with Midsummer, a show about the ups and downs of love and attraction that can more easily be explained by the interference of fairies than by reason. Reciting from Act 3, Mr. McKerrow, who studied Shakespeare in college and in New York, adds, Reason and love keep little company together nowadays.

My friend Joel has a way with women. Not a way, exactly, but a confidence, an ease, a lack of fear that I find amazing. Theres no shortage of women in his life serious women and fun women and pretty women and curvy women. Women who are happy to date him, happy to accept his invitation to dinner or dancing. Its hard not to get caught in his orbit. I was caught briefly several years ago, flattered that he asked me out and flattered that he kept asking even when I said I was regretfully unavailable. This guy, I thought, knows what hes doing.When Joel joined a group of my friends at a bar one night, I saw exactly what makes him so gifted. Its not that hes especially handsome (although he is) or especially charming (although hes that too), its that he lacks any fear of rejection. He asked every pretty girl in the place to dance. Half said no. But he was unfazed. After each rejection, he dusted himself off and kept going. At the end of the night, he made another round, this time asking for phone numbers. Half still said no. But the rest said yes, and he went home with a phone full of new contacts. Its an admirable trait, this fearlessness in the face of rejection. One I wish I possessed. Im the type of person who has trouble asking the salesclerk in Bed, Bath & Beyond for help. My voice pipes out in a squeak and I keep my eyes on the floor. I cant even tell you what Im afraid of. That the clerk might reject my request for help finding the scented candles? That he might deny my search for curtain rods? That hell walk away from my inquiry about pillowcases? The ego is a funny thing, fragile and quick to damage. It bruises easily. Which is why nothing stings quite like rejection, and why we let fear of rejection in life and love hold us back. Enter Rejection Therapy. Invented by Jason Comely, who says discovering the technique was like being liberated from prison, the purpose of this personal social experiment is to seek out rejection. Thats right: Seek it out. Rejection Therapy is a game of sorts with only one rule: You must be rejected by another person at least once, every single day. But why? Why subject ourselves to daily doses of pain? To be more aware of how our social fears restrict our lives, Mr. Comely says. If we seek out rejection, well realize how many of the painful scenarios we imagine are just that our imaginations. Rejection Therapy demands that we tackle those fears head-on, and in doing so we release the demons that hold us back. Look at Joel, who has mastered the art of climbing back on the bull. If we could all tap into this ability to let go of our fears in the face of rejection, then our love lives, for one, would be transformed. What qualifies as failure in Rejection Therapy? Mr. Comely asks on his Web site. You do nothing, and continue living the life you are now.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Monday and 5 and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. With book by James Lapine, Into the Woods is a contemporary and witty portrayal of a fairy tale world. The musical comedy intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales as they explore the consequences of the characters wishes and quests. When a baker and his wife learn theyve been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects needed to break the spell, even if it means swindling, stealing and lying. Everyones wish is eventually granted, but the results of their actions return to haunt them, sometimes with disastrous results. This is a show for all ages, promises Megan McCombs, KidzAct director. It delves into the true meaning behind fairy tales, including civic responsibility and accepting the consequences of our actions. Among the cast of 20 young actors are Erica Wagner as the title character in Little Red Riding Hood and Brigid Wallace portraying the witch from Rapunzel. Ben Cabral takes on the title role from Jack and the Beanstalk, and Jessica Cohen is Cinderella. Audition call for summers All Shook UpThe Naples Players will hold auditions for the summer musical production of All Shook Up on Saturday, April 7. The show is based on Shakespeares Twelfth Night and features the songs of Elvis Presley. The cast calls for five female principles (two age 18 to mid-30s, one age 14-22 and two age 40-60). There are three parts for African American actors/singers/dancers. Principal male roles, all of which require singing, include a young Elvis (baritone, age 25-35), one male tenor age 18-30, one male tenor age 14-22, and two male baritones age 45-65. The shows large ensemble offers opportunities for high-energy dancers and singers, ages 14 and up, including African Americans. Those auditioning should prepare at least 16 bars of a rock n roll or contemporary musical theater song. An accompanist will be provided. The show will be directed by Dallas Dunnagan with musical direction by Charles Fornara and choreography by Dawn Lebrecht Fornara. Rehearsals begin May 7, and performances will be June 28-July 29. Perusal scripts are available for 72 hours, with a $20 deposit. For more information, call 434-7340, ext. 10.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 most recent count). She also created a project in which she plans to paint a portrait of every serviceman or woman who has died or dies in the Iraq war or the war in Afghanistan. She gives the paintings to each fallen heros family as a gift. So far, more than 6,500 Americans have died in these wars, and Kaziah has painted just shy of 1,000 of them. Realizing what an overwhelming mission shed set for herself, she created Project Compassion, a nonprofit organization, and enlisted four other artists to join her in painting portraits. Together, at last count, theyve painted 3,500 portraits of fallen heroes from all branches of the military and all ranks. With information provided by the Department of Defense, Kaziah sends a letter to the families of those killed, offering to paint a portrait of their loved one for free. If they agree, she requests three to four photos of the person, plus a description of his personality and what he liked. She wants to get a feel for who they were, so she can capture their personality in oils. As she says in the documentary, My goal is to get straight to the heart. I want to know, to see, to experience the particulars of the personality Im trying to portray, with the hope that their very soul will mix with the paint and the portrait will become alive. Over the course of the film, viewers get to see her working on a portrait. She starts with their eyes, and talks to them as she paints. The portraits are a labor of love for Kaziah, who painted her first portrait of a fallen hero after she heard that a serviceman from Utah had died.This couldve been my child, she thought, though she has no children of her own. Each one (she paints), she seriously believes that these could have been her kids, says Ms. Janes, the director. Kaziah recognized that they were all someones child. And suddenly she understood that she had to paint portraits of all of those who had died. And so she began. There is not one branch of the military she has not received an award from, Ms. Janes says. Shes highly regarded and extremely honored by all the branches. Ms. Janes and producer Kathleen Dolan took two trips to Utah to shoot the film, first staying with Kaziah for five days, then returning to film for another three. We bunkered into her house and lived there with her, Ms. Janes says. I just kept the camera rolling. She shot approximately 100 hours of film, capturing Kaziah at work painting and also tending to her goats. Watching a goat give birth to four kids was awesome, she says. In the film, Kaziah reveals that she was given to an older man for marriage when she was only 15. She lived in polygamy until she was 32, when she escaped from the lifestyle of fundamentalist Mormonism. Ms. Janes calls her a survivor, saying, Shes always been a bit outspoken and against the grain. Difficult to edit She and Ms. Dolan want to make a feature-length film about Kaziah and delve more into her life in polygamy, but decided to make this documentary short first. It has always been our intent to produce a feature film about Kaziahs early life in polygamy, Ms. Dolan says. This doc happened along the way. We felt we really needed people to see how dynamic she is, in order to get the bigger picture made, Ms. Janes says. Shes one of the most amazing women. Our film only touches on the surface. Shes pretty spectacular. Weaving all the various strands of Kaziahs story together into a short film was a challenge, she says. I wasnt expecting how hard it would be to edit it, Ms. Janes says. There was so much amazing, amazing, amazing footage. That became the real challenge: telling this story succinctly and elegantly. It was a lovely challenge, thats what I live for. But it was much harder than I thought it would be. Ms. Dolan had a huge hand in keeping the story straight, she says. We worked together. Gratifying and horrible Kaziah the Goat Woman has played at more than 15 film festivals so far, including the Sarasota Film Festival, the Sedona International Film Festival, DocUtah and the Beijing International Film Festival. Its won various awards, including Grand Festival Award at the Berkeley Film & Video Festival and the Audience Favorite Award at DocUtah. Ms. Janes believes the Audience Favorite is the most important award at a festival because it means a film touched the heart of those who saw it. It speaks volumes for all the hard work we do, she says. Were grateful that people are connecting to it. Typically, at every festival, Ms. Dolan, the producer, finds a nearby family who has lost a loved one in the war and gives them a Kaziah portrait of that person after the screening. Its extremely emotional, gratifying and horrible all at the same time, Ms. Janes says. Kaziah the Goat Woman will be screened as part of the Fort Myers Film Festival at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers. A donation of $5 is suggested. After the screening, festival founder Eric Raddatz will present a Kaziah portrait of 2nd Lt. Michael McGahan of Orlando to members of the soldiers family. Mr. McGahan was killed in 2010 while leading a platoon in Afghanistan. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Mr. Raddatz will also present Kaziah portraits of Capt. Daniel Eggers to his family, who live in Cape Coral. (His wife, Maj. Rebecca Eggers, is based at the Pentagon.) Woman with a dream Kaziah began painting when she was 10; her mother saved up and bought her paints. It changed her life, to have this creative outlet. For Ms. Janes, finding her way to film was a longer road. While attending Penn State, she was, by her own admission, partying too hard. She failed in all three majors she pursued: psychology, sociology and environmental studies. Then her parents called her and told her they were losing their house and couldnt support her anymore. During that time, Ms. Janes had a dream in which she was diagnosed HIV positive and was dying. (In the dream) my mom came up to me, bawling, and said, What am I going to do without you? I said, Well, Im going to make a film, and anytime you or Dad miss me and want to be near me, you can put it in the VCR, and there I am. The next morning, I went to the film department. My parents totally supported me in this. They were thrilled. And I never looked back. She moved to Colorado, attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and graduated with a BA in film. I got excellent grades, she says. It was where I belonged. It made sense. The gates opened. Opportunities presented themselves. I started editing film; I got a great editing position, I had my own editing suite. I was pretty lucky. She went back to school and earned a masters in film from UCLA Graduate School. When you find something you love, it all falls into place, she says. And it was all because of this dream. Portrait of a survivor There arent very many venues in which to show short documentaries, except for festivals, she says. Weve been grateful and blessed that a lot of the festivals have taken a liking to us. She and Ms. Dolan are working with a distributor to get Kaziah the Goat Woman on television, and they also want to show the film on military bases. By putting human faces to the names of all those who have died, Kaziah personalizes the immense cost of war. Suddenly, instead of rows of names, we see the soldiers for who they are: individuals, people with dreams and hopes and personalities. The film, Ms. Janes says, is a portrait of a survivor and her connection with the families who are left behind, and the kids who are out there in war. She was in her own war, in her own prison, and she had to figure out her own path to survive. Kaziahs paintings, she says, honor those who have died, their commitment to each other and the human spirit. Kaziah does these portraits so that the fallen military heroes will never be forgotten, Ms. Dolan says. We did this film so that Kaziahs work will never be forgotten. It is our portrait of her.

Great shows close too early or dont get the recognition they deserve. For example, in their heyday, Lerner and Loewe wrote a number of awardwinning musicals that have become classics: Camelot, My Fair Lady, Brigadoon and Gigi, to name a few. My Fair Lady is the most popular. Locally, it played at Sarasotas Asolo Theatre this past fall, and a national tour played the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall earlier this month. But over the last 15 years or so, I cant recall a single local or touring production of Brigadoon. The musical is about an enchanted Scottish village that appears only once every 100 years; Im beginning to wonder if a similar spell has been cast on the show itself, its played here so rarely. The Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre is presenting a production through the end of March, and management there was stunned by the overwhelmingly positive response from patrons before it even opened. And it is wonderful to hear Heather on the Hill, Come to Me, Bend to Me and Almost Like Being in Love on stage. Brigadoon boasts a gorgeous score that just begs to be performed live. Director M. Seth Reines has done an excellent job with Brigadoon overall. The characters are believable and the songs moving. This is a superb production that harkens back to Broadways Golden Age. Though the show is 65 years old, it has a fresh feel to it. Thats helped by the book (by lyricist Alan Jay Lerner), which gives us Tommy (Jason Fleck) and Jeff (Victor Legarreta), two New York friends who go hunting in Scotland. As they wisecrack and banter, the audience takes an instant liking to them. Lost in the Scottish Highlands, the two stumble upon a mysterious village not on the map Brigadoon. The town seems quaint, but also a little strange. The husband-hunting Meg (Morgan Springer) has her eye on Jeff and tries to seduce him, while Tommy, much to his own surprise, finds himself falling for Fiona (Jeannie Shubitz, his wife in real life.) Mr. Legarreta is very funny as Tommys sidekick, and his sardonic oneliners get many of the laughs of the night. Mr. Fleck, whom some may recognize as Daddy Warbucks from an earlier production of Annie, does well as the romantic lead whos engaged to a woman back in New York, but not really in love with her. Ms. Shubitz, as Fiona, is a real find. She possesses an outstanding voice and is luminous every time shes on stage. You can see why Tommy is falling for her character. Sal Pavia, as Charlie, the man engaged to Fionas sister, is also a standout. His renditions of Come to Me, Bend to Me and Ill Go Home With Bonnie Jean are simply astounding, especially when he holds those long, high notes. This is a romantic musical about love, and Lerner and Loewe have given it to us in abundance. First, we have references to three marriages: Fionas sister, Jean (Alyson Bloom), is getting married to Charlie that day. Tommy is engaged to Jane (Traci McCormick), whos back in New York. And one of Megs solos, My Mothers Wedding Day, humorously describes how, because the groom is late, everyone gets drunk while waiting for him. (And when he does show up, hes drunker than anyone.) The musical gives us two stories of unrequited love: Meg wants Jeff, but he wants no part of her, and Harry (Michael Dinneen) has long been carrying a torch for Jean, even though shes going to marry Charlie. His torment is especially keen because he cant leave Brigadoon without breaking the villages enchantment. And of course, Tommy and Fiona are falling in love, though initially theyre slow to acknowledge it. (This is where the classic Almost Like Being in Love comes in, with the two singing what a rare mood Im in/why, its almost like being in love.) There is not a weak performer in the entire cast. Set designer Tom Tutino successfully met the challenge of creating so many locales all on the same stage, including the Scottish Highlands, the village of Brigadoon and fields of heather. Jim Conti dressed the characters is various patterns of plaid. The plaids for the wedding scene have glittery thread woven into the material. I dont know if he was trying to modernize their look or make them appear more mystical. The men, however, are not wearing kilts in an authentic manner. One revealed boxer shorts underneath when he twirled a little too vigorously. (But at least they were plaid.) The dances, a mix of ballet and Scottish dancing, were choreographed by Dottie Lester White. (The original dances were created by Agnes DeMille.) While its obvious that much care has been taken to present a quality show, the theater has cut corners with the music, however. The small orchestra consists of trumpet, trombone, reeds and drums, with musical director Loren Strickland on keyboards. But the cheesy synthesizer sound cheapens the experience and doesnt do justice to the great singers and lovely songs. This production is also missing a bagpiper, who was with the show when it toured and played at the Broadway Palms dinner theater in Mesa, Ariz. During a funeral scene, I heard bagpipes and kept looking around the stage for the musician, but couldnt see one. I learned later that the music was recorded. There was also a problem with the sound balance the night I attended. The bagpipe recording was very loud, and Mr. Flecks vocals throughout the evening seemed over-amplified. But these concerns aside, Brigadoon is a spectacular show. Kudos to the Broadway Palm for bringing this classic to Southwest Florida.

Dont rely on someones unsubstantiated assurances. Insist on all the facts before you act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That workplace problem still needs your attention before you finally can close the book on it. Meanwhile, a long-anticipated reunion gets closer to becoming a happy reality. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might be demanding more from others than they can give. Best advice: Have a long and frank talk to determine what the facts are. Tensions should abate as the week winds down. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Aspects are favorable throughout this week for making contacts that could be important to your career plans. Meanwhile, an old friend offers the advice youre seeking. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Its time to stop licking your wounds from past mistakes. Get up and get going toward your future. Loyal friends will be there to help the Lion get back into rip-roaring shape. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Take time out to go over whats expected of you before you begin your new project. Otherwise, you run the risk of pushing yourself harder than you need to. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) An unusual request could put you in an awkward position. Best advice: Deal with it immediately. The longer you delay, the more difficult it will be to get out of it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You should feel recharged and ready for whatever your workaday world holds for you. The same positive energy spills over into your personal relationships. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A prospect might be less than it appears to be. Like the Archer in your sign, you always aim for the truth. And this is no time to settle for less than full disclosure. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Start doing some serious thinking about a career move that could entail more than just changing job sites. Some lifestyle changes also might be involved. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) With tensions easing at the workplace, a more positive environment once again encourages the free flow of ideas so typical of the always-innovative Aquarian. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Show some of that usually hidden steel-strong Piscean backbone, and stand up for yourself if you hope to make a case for that promotion you know you deserve. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy doing new things and staying ahead of the crowd. You would make a fine sports coach or military leader. SEE ANSWERS, C9 SEE ANSWERS, C9012 King Features Synd., Inc.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 C11 Is it worth $10? YesNow this is how you reboot an old TV show. The makers of Jump Street have taken the idea of the original show young-looking cops going undercover in a high school and invigorated it with humor and gusto, and the result is what could end up being the funniest movie of 2012. In high school, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) was a nervous, Eminem-wannabe loser, and Jenko (Channing Tatum) was a dumb jock. Seven years later, they havent grown up much, but they do become friends at the police academy and later find themselves partnered up on bike patrol at a local park. In other words, theyre still losers. Then fortune smiles: Thanks to their youthful appearances, theyre assigned to the jump street unit and told to infiltrate a synthetic drug ring at a local high school. Naturally, this serves as a high school do-over for them, and ironically enough its Schmidt who ends up hanging with cool kids Molly (Brie Larson) and Eric (Dave Franco), while Jenko is stuck with the nerds. They also have new rules to follow: Dont get expelled, and no sex with teachers/students. The fact that they go as long as they do without breaking at least one of them is impressive. OK, the story is nothing special. In comedies it almost never is. But Michael Bacalls script is sharp and witty and hilarious, and its not afraid to take shots at itself (i.e. the movie as a TV reboot) and action movie conventions (explosions during a freeway chase scene). Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller keep the laughs coming quickly and move the film along at a brisk pace, which is ideal. Best of all, Hill and Tatum hit on most of the jokes. We expect this from Hill, a seasoned young comedian (Knocked Up) whos been trying to get this project made for about five years (hes an executive producer for the film), but its a pleasant surprise to get it from Tatum. Weve seen him in action (G.I. Joe) and drama (Dear John), but it wouldve been hard to guess he had comedy chops too. Like him or not, the diversity in his career choices has been smart. Hill and Tatum are also surrounded by a great supporting cast: Ice Cube gets a laugh in all of his scenes as the angry black man head of the jump street unit, Ellie Kemper (The Office) is cute and funny as an inappropriate chemistry teacher, and Rob Riggle (The Hangover) is hilarious as the goofy gym teacher. Sadly, the great Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) is underused in only one scene as the police chief. If youre turned off by the fact that this is yet another reboot of a lame old TV series, I get it. But Ill also say that Jump Street, whether youre familiar with the old show or not, is worth your time and money if youre in the mood for a laugh. Seeking Justice (Nicolas Cage, January Jones, Guy Pearce) After his wife (Jones) is savagely attacked, Will (Cage) makes a deal with a stranger named Simon (Pearce) to take care of the assailant. But when Will has to return the favor, trouble ensues. Its a good, tense thriller thatll have you questioning your own morality when its over. Rated R.Casa de mi Padre (Will Ferrell, Diego Luna, Genesis Rodriguez) Armando (Ferrell) must protect his fathers Mexican ranch from a drug lord (Gael Garcia Bernal). Its a silly Will Ferrell comedy in every way, except one: Its entirely in Spanish. Unfortunately, the comedy doesnt consistently translate through subtitles. Rated R.John Carter (Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Mark Strong) A Civil War veteran named John Carter (Kitsch) is transported to Mars, where he encounters strange alien life and attempts to save a princess (Collins) from certain death. This is a big, bloated action pic that freely steals from other great movies (Avatar, Star Wars) but contributes little substance of its own. Rated PG-13.

The School for Wives was written by the 17th-century French playwright Molire and considered by some critics to be one of his finest achievements. A pompous middleaged bachelor thinks he has established a surefire antidote to adultery in a wife. Can his scheme create the perfect wife docile, adoring and amorous on demand, or will his plans fall prey to a determined rival suitor, a pair of inept servants and true love? Bill Taylor, Theatre Conspiracys founder and producing artistic director, who last year brought the classic Medea to the local stage, directs The School for Wives. Scott Thomson, last seen in Beckys New Car, has the lead role of Arnolphe; rounding out the cast are Rick Sebastian, Pam Erdman, Thomas Marsh, Bernard Gomez, Robert Feigenblatt, Brittany Albury and John Saco. The School for Wives plays through Thursday, April 7, with performances at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and a matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 25. Tickets are $18, except on pay-what-you-will opening night, when patrons name the ticket price. For more information, call 936-3239 or visit www.theatreconspiracy.org. Born in 1622, Molire is considered to be one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature. His best-known works include The Misanthrope, The School for Wives and Tartuffe. He served as the official playwright for the French royal court. Quite apropo, Molire died on stage performing Argan in his final play, The Imaginary Invalid.

Baby Basics will host a welcoming reception and the choir will give a sneak peek performance at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 22, at Waterside Shops. Cocktails and appetizers will be served. The choirs repertoire crosses musical eras from Mozart to Michael Jackson. Under the direction of Edward Whiting, they have performed in St. Pauls Cathedral, in Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, and in a joint service with Chapel Choir of Eton College. In 2008, the choir commissioned and gave the world premiere of composer David Bednalls Missa Brevis in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris. The mass was subsequently developed into a Requiem for upper voices, viola and organ, and the choir has performed it for audiences throughout the UK, in Italy and in New York and Washington, D.C. Baby Basics is an all-volunteer organization that collects and distributes diapers to low-income, working parents who do not receive government assistance. Tickets to both the welcome reception at Waterside and the church concert are $45; admission to just the reception is $30, and to the concert only, $20. Students can attend at no cost. To purchase tickets or for more information, call 261-5469. All proceeds will benefit Baby Basics of Collier County.

Mann Performing Arts Hall March 28-April 15. The Fort Myers return engagement is part of the Fifth Third Bank Broadway Series. The show was created by some of the biggest talents of the stage, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Academy Award-winner for Pocahontas and The Prince of Egypt) and book by Winnie Holzman (My So Called Life, Once And Again and thirtysomething). The untold story of the witches of Oz, Wicked is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Love! Valour! Compassion!, The Vagina Monologues) and features musical staging by Tony Award-winner Wayne Cilento (Aida, The Whos Tommy, How To Succeed).

School. She taught there for 21 years and coordinated with the schools current English teacher and drama coach, Chris Johnston, not only to have a quality stage to use but to have access to all area high school students who love theater.One of SIPs main goals is to incorporate students from middle school through college-age as interns both on stage and behind the scenes. The BCHS partnership helps fulfill this goal. The schools drama department will receive a percentage of the proceeds from A Midsummer Nights Dream.Though it is customary for interns to pay for their internship with professional theater companies, SIP pursues local sponsorship for its interns. Naples High School senior Tori Hendry, 17, is one of 11 interns with the company. I am honored to be able to learn from and work with actors belonging to a true Shakespeare company, says Ms. Hendry, who placed second in a recent Shakespeare monologue competition for which Mr. McKerrow was a judge. Her high-spirited personality and enthusiasm make her a natural for the role of Hermia in Midsummer. I like Hermia because shes fierce and feisty, she says. Ms. Hendry will attend Florida State University in the fall. Actor and costume designer Mark Vanagas brings his talent and original costume designs to the show. Were using a great variety of draping fabrics, Mr. Vanagas says about his designs for the production. In addition, he portrays two characters in the play: Oberon and Theseus. A special $50 patron ticket package is available for opening night at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 22. The ticket includes preferred sea ting and an opportunity to meet the cast and director after the show. Whats next for SIP? Company members will present an encore performance of Macbeth, A Love Story as part of The Marco Players Lunch Box series on April 14.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYARTS TWO C25ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTAntiques Society Cuisine WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012Murder and mystery mixed with history in the Missisippi Delta Plunder, by Mary Anna Evans. Poisoned Pen Press. 306 pages. $24.95 hardback, $14.95 trade paper.This latest adventure of Mary Anna Evans protagonist, archaeologist Faye Longchamp, has many centers of interest. Faye is at work in the area where the Mississippi River empties into the Gulf of Mexico, in in Louisiana not far from New Orleans. Her client, a major environmental firm, has asked her to perform what should have been a routine archaeological survey. It is no longer so, however; crude oil approaching the coast from the Deepwater Horizon amplifies the urgency of the survey many times over. Accompanied by her husband, Native American Joe Mantooth, and their 1-year old son, Faye is drawn into a strange situation that involves Amande, a teenager whose grandmother and uncle are murdered soon after Amandes mother, who had abandoned her to the grandmothers care, dies of illness. Inheritance vultures are circling, but just what is it that is at stake? These are extremely poor people, though hardly salt-of-the-earth types. What ties the murders and the jockeying for inheritance claims and the positioning for guardianship rights together? It cant be just the houseboat that Amande has lived on with her grandmother, or the few pieces of old coins and other relics that Amande has collected. No. There must be much more. And there is: sunken treasure from the days when pirates roamed and sometimes ruled. Amande has an inheritance share of a small island that might be a key to finding and claiming those treasures. Is the murderer eliminating other heirs? Is Amande in jeopardy? What can Faye and Joe do to protect this young woman whom, soon after meeting her, they greatly admire and respect even love? The novels ongoing present involves a race toward the resolution of these questions, a race accelerated by the spreading oil catastrophe that is threatening to foul the waters and the coastline. It represents a different kind of plunder and a different kind of piracy. How different, asks Mary Anna Evans, is pirate greed from petroleum greed? Who or what must die when plunderers battle to extract the riches of the New World? The readers of Plunder will learn a great deal about the history of the Mississippi Delta region and about the unique weave of cultural strands that characterize it today. In addition, Ms. Evans series is an ongoing lesson in archaeology. Special attractions in Plunder include the exquisite characterization of young Amande. Few 16-year-olds face her predicament of isolation and threat, and few show her maturity, resourcefulness and determination. We can see why Faye and Joe want to help her. The author develops the teenagers character, in part, through the fascinating interchapters in which we hear Amandes voice recording episodes for The Podcast I Never Intend to Broadcast. In these vignettes, she retells and comments on the vaguely ancestral tales her late grandmother, Miranda, had told her over the years: tales of the deep delta country, way below New Orleans in the betweenland where the Mississippi pours itself into the Gulf. These focus mainly on an escaped slave named Gola George who developed a pirate venture, and his sometimes ally and subordinate Henry the Mutineer. The story within the story adds richly to the scope and atmosphere of Plunder. Also quite alluring is the complex portrait of scientist-businesswoman Faye in her maternal role with little Michael and her fierce warrior role as protector of Amande. Plunder includes a colorful cast of lowlife villains (just about all of Amandes greedy relatives), attractive local characters like Manny, and well-individualized functionaries like social worker Sally Smythe, Amandes lawyer Bernard Reuss, and Detective Benoit. Throw in a bit of voodoo and a drumbeat of suspense, and everything adds up to a wonderful treat for the mind and heart of any reader. Mississippi-born Mary Anna Evans, who has long resided in the Gainesville, Fla., area, has established herself as a major contemporary Southern writer. She has been awarded a Mississippi Library Association Mississippi Author Award and the Florida Historical Societys Patrick D. Smith Florida Literature Award, among other distinctions.

Its the rare creature that wasnt touched by the searing lights, burned, deformed or fused with something metal, plastic, the earth at their feet, even other living beings. In this new landscape, man-eating Dusts and Beasts lie in wait for unwary prey, the corrupt military relentlessly prowls the streets for recruits and targets, and fading memories of Before have become treasured currency. Suffering and desperate, the survivors gaze hungrily at the Dome the haven of those lucky few who managed to escape the devastation and recite like a prayer the long-ago promise, Help is coming. But Pressia has no more time to wait. She has turned 16, and now the soldiers are coming for her. In contrast, Partridges life under the Dome is highly civilized: lessons, school dances, mandatory gene-altering sessions the usual routine. But when a chance remark from his father gives reason for Partridge to hope his longlost mother might still be alive outside, he resolves to break out and find her. Of course, he is dreadfully misinformed and underprepared for what he will find out there ... but life in the Dome may not have left him so soft as one would believe. Of course, Partridge and Pressia are destined to meet, and when they do, the astonishing secrets they uncover together may just change the future of their world. The first installment in an intriguing new sci-fi series, Pure doesnt stint on the horror of its premise. The pages are filled with uncomfortable, nightmarish imagery as well as flashes of macabre beauty: a boy with birds fluttering in his back, a girl joined forever to the doll she can never outgrow. Pure is a powerful vision of a future that is like its denizens, a Frankenstein jumble of the familiar and the unimaginable. 12980 Tamiami Trail N.In the Imperial Shoppes, across from Germain ToyotaNaples, FL 34110 239.325.9767Consignment BoutiqueStart the New Year in style Something for everyone petite to plusConsignment for the stylish, con dent woman!RED LINE SALE 20-50% OFF $20 AND UNDER RACKS!

Its the rest of the story that adds to the fun. A large pail that once held Dan Patch Roasted Coffee auctioned recently for $2,035. The brightred can features a horse and rider in a harness race. The can is colorful, 11 inches tall and very decorative, but the price was boosted by the history it represents. Dan Patch was a brown horse, a pacer, born in Indiana in 1896. He broke the worlds record for a harness race in 1906, and it took 32 years for another horse to go faster. He never lost a race. He was a celebrity, and coffee wasnt the only product named for him. Cars and washing machines and cigars bore his name, and so did popular toys. Crowds followed his appearances and as many as 100,000 people went to see the horse, which, according to reports, radiated charisma. Dan Patch received fan mail and gifts while making as much as $1 million in a year. He retired from racing in 1909 and died in 1916. He remained a star for many years after his death, partly because his world record was not broken until 1938. Streets named Dan Patch still exist. Dan Patch Stadium is at a high school in Savage, Minn., where the horse lived after he was purchased by a Minnesotan in 1902. An annual Dan Patch Day festival is celebrated in his hometown of Oxford, Ind., and another annual Dan Patch Day is held in Savage. Books have been written about him, a movie was made about his life in 1949 and hes mentioned in a song from the 1957 Broadway musical, The Music Man. But Dan Patch Ground Coffee was named for the horse well before the days of movies and television. You can still find Dan Patch memorabilia in Savage, Minn., today. Go to the Savage Depot Coffee Shop, the Razors Edge Barber Shop or the local library. Q: I inherited two antique Mettlach steins that were appraised six years ago for $1,700 each. I have been trying to sell them online and locally for less than that, but I have gotten no takers. Some dealers have made insulting remarks about my pricing. Whats going on? A: Some Mettlach steins in mint condition can sell for $1,700 or even more, but many sell for a lot less. Price depends on the rarity of a particular stein. In addition, youre dealing with a niche market and may not be reaching interested buyers. Try contacting a national auction house that focuses on steins. You will find several online.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 C29 Dan Patch, a famous pacer, is pictured on this coffee tin. The horse was a celebrity in the early 1900s. Today his fame lives on in collectibles and, of course, in harness-racing record books. William Morford auctions, in Cazenovia, N.Y., sold this 11-inch tin for $2,035. Q: My grandmother, who was born in 1886, left her favorite rocking chair to me. She lived in Chippewa Falls, Wis., and the chair is labeled Webster Mfg. Co., Superior, Wis. The chair is oak and has a pressed design in the backs crest above six turned spindles. What can you tell me? A: Webster Manufacturing Co. of Superior, Wis., was making chairs by the 1890s. In its early years, it was called the Webster Chair Co. By 1915 it was a major American chair manufacturer and had opened a factory in at least one other city. It appears to have gone out of business during the Depression. Pressed oak chairs like yours were especially popular in the late 19th century, so it is likely your chair dates from that period. Depending on its condition, it would sell for $100 or more. Q: I have a kerosene lamp marked Queen Anne and Scovill Mfg. Co. I know its about 100 years old. Can you give me some information about it? A: Scovill Manufacturing Co. opened in 1802 in Waterbury, Conn., under the name Abel Porter & Co. It made brass buttons and operated under various names and owners through the years. James Mitchell Lamson Scovill and William H. Scovill eventually took over the business, which was incorporated as Scovill Manufacturing Co. in 1850. Scovill made brass lamps, artillery fuses, munitions, medals, daguerreotype plates, cameras and other items. After 1866 it also made coin blanks for the U.S. Mint. Scovill holds several patents for improvements to lamp burners. Queen Anne is a type of burner that was in common use in the late 1800s. It was made by Scovill and other companies. New Queen Anne burners are available today for repair and restoration of old lamps. Scovill is still in business, with headquarters in Clarkesville, Ga. Today the company makes fasteners for clothing and light industrial use and holds a patent for the gripper snap, introduced in the 1930s. Your lamp was probably made in the late 1800s. If all parts are original, it is worth about $100 to $150. Tip: An unglazed rim on the bottom of a plate usually indicates it was made before 1850.

After West leads the K-A-J of clubs, you ruff, cash the A-K of spades and trump a spade in dummy. You then lead the nine of hearts to the ace, rejecting the finesse and felling Wests singleton king. You lose a diamond trick later on, but you make four hearts. But if you could not see the opposing cards, you might very well go down one after losing a heart finesse to the singleton king. However, even without the advantage of a peek, rejecting the finesse is the right play! There is a very good reason for arriving at this conclusion. First you take Wests bidding into account; then you combine it with the additional knowledge gained from the play to the first six tricks. At trick seven, when you lead the nine of hearts from dummy, you know that West who must have had at least four diamonds and four clubs for his bids, and who has already shown up with three spades cannot possibly have more than two hearts. (Actually, hes much more likely to have either one heart or none.) It follows that you cannot gain by taking a trump finesse. Even if the finesse won, youd still have to lose a trump trick later to Easts K -x-x or K-x-x-x. Y our only hope, therefore, is that West was dealt the singleton king of trumps! It is true that the chance of West having been dealt specifically the singleton king is very slim, but a remote chance is surely better than no chance at all.

COLLIER COUNTY RESIDENT DISCOUNT YOUR ADVENTURE AWAITS VINOKrupp Brothers Winery starts with great terroir, then adds grapesAmong the delightful boutique wines cropping up in area shops are the distinctive Napa offerings of Krupp Brothers Winery, which are characterized by big fruit flavors and excellent structure. After having attended a couple of recent tastings, I interviewed owner Jan Krupp, an internal medicine physician, by phone last week. Q: How do you practice medicine and maintain your vineyard? A: I do not practice anymore, except as a first responder in the vineyards. We have too many grapevines to do that and practice medicine. Q: How did you make the transition from medicine to winemaking? A: I studied at Yale, but wanted to learn medicine in the sunshine, so I moved to northern California and did my post grad at Stanford. I liked being a doctor, but liked growing grapes and making wine even more. In 1991, I found 41 acres with the potential for high quality wines. I planted wilder and rockier vineyards until I had 500,000 vines planted and gave up medicine to make wine. I studied at UC-Davis to learn the science of winemaking. Q: Do you see an advantage in creating a wholly new vineyard rather than purchasing an existing one? A: The advantage is you can really study what type of grapes and rootstock are best for your location, and get the right angle for the rows. You do not inherit someone elses mistake. Also, exceptional vineyards are not for sale. Q: How do your vineyards differ from each other? A: Our Stagecoach Vineyard is planted with 550 acres of grapes on Atlas Peak. The different aspects of the soil make it perfect for cabernet sauvignon, and the mountain grapes make a bigger, juicier fruit with ripe round tannins. The Krupp Vineyard has about 30 acres planted in mostly tempranillo and malbec. Its a little cooler spot. The Krupp Brothers Vineyard is generally deeper soil, so we can utilize different rootstocks there. Q: Whats your favorite wine that you make? A: That depends on what I am eating, but if I could take just one to a desert island, it would be the Krupp Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon. It has so much depth and concentration and complexity. Q: What are your plans for the near future? A: We hope to build a winery in the next year, and we want to do more small production wines for our wine club members. We bottled a special malbec last year, and also a syrah with three years barrel aging. It is wonderful to do these wines, and were hoping once the tasting room and winery are open it will drive more visitors out to us. Right now, we crush and make our wines at Laird Family Estate Winery in Napa, and tastings are at the top of Stagecoach Vineyard, at 1,800-feet elevation. Normally, we take visitors up in an SUV, but for special wine club events we use our 136-year-old stagecoach. I recently attended a Krupp Brothers tasting at Decanted Wines in Naples. Here are my tasting notes: Krupp Brothers The Doctor 2007 ($75): An interesting blend of merlot, tempranillo and malbec with some cabernet sauvignon. Opens with violets and lavender and earth followed onto the palate by black fruits, dark cocoa and mocha and a lingering finish. Veraison Synchrony 2007 ($72): Dark rich colors with fragrant floral notes and aromas of blackberry, vanilla and blueberry. The palate is layered with bright red fruits and mocha and leads to a long, lingering finish. Veraison Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach 2007 ($60): Aromas of spice and espresso bean lead to black currant, dark berries and a mineral edge, with a powerful yet elegant finish. Krupp Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 ($104): Deep purple color with a complex aroma of cassis, violets and chocolate. The palate is layered with dark black fruits, roasted coffee and black tea with a long, structured finish. Black Bart Syrah Stagecoach 2007 ($58): Deep garnet in color with aromas of blueberries and raspberries, with a complex palate of fruit and oak and a persistent finish. s a r i e A jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTODr. Jan Krupp with his stagecoach atop the vineyard.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 22-28, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C39 Chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin has Thai roots and Le Cordon Bleu training. So its not all that surprising that his new restaurant, LOrient, skillfully melds Asian and French, creating a menu that isnt totally unfamiliar yet still affords a few surprises. Chicken satay, edamame, kung pao chicken, udon noodle soup and pineapple curry shrimp are among the old friends youll find in the lineup. Then Chef Thretipthuangsin goes on to perform some creative culinary riffs, with dishes such as lemongrass bouillabaisse, Thai crab cake with smoked onion remoulade and beef carpaccio with miso garlic aioli. The result is interesting and elegant, much like the restaurant itself. LOrient occupies the space that was Olio until that fateful gas line explosion in November 2010 in the comely Naples Bay Resort just east of downtown. The restaurants decor looks pretty much as I recall it from previous visits: an L-shaped room with a bar to the right of the entrance and a small dining area overlooking the water to the left, as well as a larger space with a view of the bustling open kitchen. Decor is spare but colorful banquettes covered in aqua with beige flowers, orange-hued lights dangling from the ceiling and oddly shaped driftwood mounted like sculptures on poles. The restaurant had been open a little more than two weeks when I visited on Saturday night, and it was understandably quiet. Not only was the place brand new, but it was St. Patricks Day, a day when many people seek out green beer, corned beef and such. Ill pass, thanks. While my companion enjoyed a glass of Belle Glos Meiomi pinot noir, I sampled one of LOrients 12 signature cocktails, each named for, and presumably crafted on, the characteristics of the creatures of the Chinese zodiac snake, rat, donkey, etc. I tried the Dog, essentially a mojito with pomegranate liqueur, which was delicious. It had lots of fresh mint and the pomegranate added a slightly sour note, which worked well with the rum and lime. Dinner was a multicultural affair, starting with terrific artichoke flatbread ($13.90) and a tasty shrimp spring roll ($10.90). The former began on bread as thin as a cracker but more tender, topped with wild mushrooms, chopped artichoke, Manchego cheese, a trace of white truffle oil, crunchy salt and fresh micro greens. It was cut into easy-to-handle squares and served two nicely. The second appetizer consisted of four shrimp, each wrapped in rice paper and perfectly fried, served with a plum reduction that contained a bracing bite of chili. Our entrees curry chicken meatloaf ($22) and lemongrass bouillabaisse ($36) both consisted of impeccably fresh ingredients prepared well and artistically plated. The meatloaf, a combination of ground chicken and shrimp, came sliced into five segments drizzled with a heavenly curry sauce alive with the flavors of lime and velvety coconut milk. The sauce was used as an accent but the meatloaf, which was a little chewy, could have benefitted from about twice the amount. It came with a smattering of vegetables a few carrots and green beans, which were cooked to a lovely tender-crisp consistency and lightly seasoned. The bouillabaisse looked much like the French style, with mounds of shrimp, mussels, calamari and fish in a light tomato broth. But this version also contained sliced lemongrass, which imparted a delicate, citrusy flavor commonly found in Asian fare. We shared a side dish of lo mein noodles ($9), which contained a soy-based sauce and veggies. The noodles were cooked just right, and the sauce wasnt overly salty. Still, I was left wondering why customers should have to order a side dish with entrees priced as they are. Even rice costs extra ($2 for jasmine rice for one, $4 for forbidden rice; pad Thai, fried rice or lo mein, which serve two, cost $9). Our server told us the chef purchases some of the seafood such as the nightly grouper special fresh from the boats that day. Obviously, thats going to be more expensive than the imported frozen stuff, but a scoop of rice or noodles is an inexpensive gesture of goodwill at a time when many people are cutting back on discretionary spending. The chef appears to be as adept at dessert as he is at savory fare. All of the restaurants desserts are homemade, our server said. We shared a rather unusual cheesecake ($8) that consisted of strawberry compote with a meringue-style layer topped with a scoop of light-bodied cheesecake and served with a lacey cookie as a garnish. Service was uneven, which isnt a surprise in such a young restaurant. The servers clearly wanted to please the customers. They explained menu items and one even spent some time teaching a woman how to use chopsticks. On the down side, the host offered us a water view, then led us to a narrow table for two with one seat facing away from the water. When we asked for a larger table, he graciously took us to a four-seater right in front of the window, but other couples who didnt speak up wound up at the little tables. I understand saving larger tables when its crowded, but there was no need for it on this night. We felt rushed as courses arrived swiftly, most likely because there were so few customers and the kitchen is well-staffed and efficient. But that doesnt explain why our server plunked down our check before wed even taken two bites of dessert. LOrient has much to like, starting with an interesting menu and a kitchen that delivers what it promises. Given a few more weeks, the front-of-the-house staff is likely to be just as skilled.
