So they tortured and killed 6 million Jews. They tortured and killed Gypsies. They tortured and killed their too-few countrymen who resisted them, and they tortured and killed those who were born with mental or physical deficiencies. Some of those Germans, now approaching their 90s, remain in the world. The effort that torturing and killing took the logistical prowess, the extraordinary efficiency, the breadth of collusion on the part of ordinary citizens and the long-plan determination was unparalleled. They did it Von der Mass bis an de Memel,/Von der Etsch bis an den Belt, or from the Mass to the Memel, from the Etsch to the belt. Those lyrics loosely describe the geography of Germany. They come from the first and most widely known verse of the German national anthem, the one that stood as the official anthem from 1922 through World War II and after, until 1952. It begins famously, Deutschland, Deutschland uber alles, / Uber alles in der Welt, its jingoistic lines tattooed forever into the cruel anatomy of the Nazi regime. To any Americans, Canadians, Europeans, Russians or others who fought the Germans and to any who lived through their maniacal exercise in genocide, those words Germany, Germany above all,/ Above all in the world must sound grotesque. As lyrics, theyre the harbingers of nightmares made real. Nowadays, only the third verse of the traditional German anthem remains the official version. Its sung to the melody written by the classical composer Franz Joseph Haydn at the end of the 18th century (the words originally came from a 19th-century German writer called August Heinrich Hoffman von Fallersleben).Unity and law and freedom For the German Fatherland Let us all strive for that In brotherhood, with heart and hand!But the other verses, official or not, can still be heard from time to time. Why do some Germans still harbor such proud and arrogant malice toward others? Given the history of the 20th century, I dont think its an unfair question. I also think this is a fair question, one posed by my youngest son: How much could we be like them? I thought about all this after a recent news report described the exhumation of the graves of more than 200 men and women in Austria who died during the Nazi regime in a hospital that ostensibly provided care to the mentally and physically disabled. Records kept by administrators showed they died peacefully, of natural causes. The bodies, however, told a different story. Many had numerous broken bones indicative of severe beating, along with evidence of a variety of other tortures at the hands of staff. That report of yet one more nearly forgotten atrocity appeared as the great German celebration of autumn, Oktoberfest, got under way wherever Germans or lovers of German culture gather from Munich to Marco, from Bergen to Bonita, from Nuremberg to Naples, Cologne to Cape Coral, Potsdam to Palm Beach or Polch to Port Charlotte. In one of those Florida festivals characterized by oomp-pah band music, schnitzel, wurst, potato pancakes and rivers of beer, organizers of the packed event kicked off the festivities by conjoining the crowd to sing The Star Spangled Banner, followed by the German national anthem, a correspondent told me. As the crowd carried on together, a group of old men singing lustily in German proudly added the swaggering Deutschland over all lyrics that Germans shouted out as millions suffocated from their gas, burned to death in their fires or died from their bullets. Then the evening proceeded as if nothing untoward had happened, I was told. Many might say, so what if a few old men sing that song? It's over and done with. But thats the problem a problem of perception. It isn't over and done with. The world will always carry a terrible wound, and it will forevermore suffer the absence of millions of personal histories that should have been part of our world, and now are not. Many came from the fatherland, to inhabit now a what-if shadowland where they remain consigned for eternity. Meanwhile this week, as President Obama and Gov. Romney debate the American obligation to Israel a debate swollen with the bloody history of the 20th century the world also continues to reflect our response to the Nazis some seven decades ago. It was sufficient in the end to staunch their atrocities, and it cost the United States the lives of roughly 200,000 Americans. But our response was far from perfect, as history reveals. We blithely turned European Jews away from our borders just before we entered World War II most later were killed and we moved too slowly to prot ect some survivors from dying of disease or hunger in the months following the German surrender in April, 1945, about 68 years ago. That's the demonstrable reality. To me, it means that every time some idiot starts singing the Nazi song, he or she is colluding with all who ever exhibited similar behavior. Why? Because any such behavior in the name of any cause or country is part of the whole cloth. Sing along with one and you collude with all: with the 19th-century American slavers and imperialists who tried to exterminate the Indians, with the Nazis, with the Japanese in China and Korea, with the Khmer Rouge in southeast Asia, with Lenin, Stalin, Mao, with the Muslim fanatics and with all the rest of them. So are we like the Nazis? Are we capable of that colluding darkness, as Americans? This is what I told my son: Not when we refuse to sing along with them. Not when we stand with none who breathe malice or chant its various incantations, no matter what culture or whose fatherland they champion, and no matter how good the schnitzel and beer. Then, were nothing like them at all. COMMENTARY a G t w A t n rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Resisting collusion

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 President Barack Obama cant even get his snark straight. In an attempt at the cutting cleverness that escaped him during his first debate with Mitt Romney, his campaign aired a TV ad hitting the Republican for his alleged hostility to Big Bird. Mitt Romney knows its not Wall Street you have to worry about, the ominous voice-over declares. Its Sesame Street. The problem with the widely panned spot is that it plays less like a spoof of Mitt Romney than a parody of one of the Obama teams own negative ads. Its as dishonest, over the top and for lack of a better word stupid. The president of the United States himself the man who once pledged to elevate our politics and make the oceans recede has made Big Bird a recurring feature of his stump speeches. He also cites Elmo and Oscar as other characters who need to watch out. (The president apparently cares nothing about the fate of Mr. Snuffleupagus, who never rates a mention.) Obama told an adoring throng at one of his events that Romney said hed bring down our deficit by going after what has been the biggest driver of our debt and deficits over the last decade public television, PBS. On Sesame Street, they would tell you Obamas statement is spelled U-N-T-R-U-E. Stipulating I love Big Bird, Romney said he would stop the subsidy to PBS, not because it is a big expenditure in the scheme of things, but because he doesnt want to spend on unnecessary items we must borrow money from China to pay for. Romneys point is unremarkable. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting gets more than $400 million a year from the federal government. If this is an essential expenditure at a time of $1 trillion deficits and a $16 trillion debt, what is nonessential? Besides, if the line item for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting were zeroed out tomorrow, it wouldnt ruffle a feather on Big Bird. On CNN, Sherrie Westin, executive vice president of the Sesame Workshop, cited all the organizations private funding and declared that, even without government help, Sesame Street will be here. Someone should load that up in the presidents teleprompter so hes sure to read it. Then, he might at least hesitate before whipping up a crowd like the one in Cleveland recently into chants of Save Big Bird! To the extent it isnt purely cynical, the presidents Sesame Street offensive is an extreme example of the belief that civil society is all but helpless without the guidance and succor of government. As if private actors cant be trusted to keep a popular childrens program featuring iconic puppets on the air, or to preserve the PBS NewsHour, or to find a way to broadcast Downton Abbey in the United States. What really boggles the mind, though, is that the president is touring the country a few weeks before a consequential national election talking about a fictional bird. To paraphrase Joseph Welch at the Army-McCarthy hearings, Have you no sense of self-respect, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of selfrespect? Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Binders full of women, and two women boundYou may have noticed that the Green Party presidential candidate, Dr. Jill Stein, was absent from the town hall presidential debate at Hofstra University the other night. Thats because she was shackled to a chair in a nearby New York police facility, along with her running mate, Green Party vice president nominee Cheri Honkala. Their crime: attempting to get to the debate so Stein could participate in it. While Mitt Romney utter ed the now-famous line that he was given whole binders full of women while seeking staff as newlyelected governor of Massachusetts in 2002, the real binders were handcuffs used to shackle these two women, who are mothers, activists and the Green Partys presidential ticket for 2012. I interviewed Stein the day after the debate, after their imprisonment (which ended, not surprisingly, not long after the debate ended). She told me: We are on the ballot for 85 percent of voters. Americans deserve to know what their choices are. The police said they were only doing their job. I said, This is about everyones jobs, whether we can afford health care, whether students will be indentured. There are critical issues left out of the debate. Ninety million voters are predicted to stay home and vote with their feet that neither Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney represent them. Thats twice as many voters than expected for either of them. Even if Stein and Honkala hadnt been hauled off a public street and handcuffed to those chairs for eight hours, Steins exclusion from the debate was certain. The debates are very closely controlled by the Commission on Presidential Debates, which excludes thirdparty candidates, among other things. George Farah is the founder and executive director of Open Debates, and author of No Debate: How the Republican and Democratic Parties Secretly Control the Presidential Debates. Farah told me on the morning of the Hofstra debate about how the CPD gained control over the debates from the nonpartisan League of Women Voters: We have a private corporation that was created by the Republican and Democratic parties called the Commission on Presidential Debates. It seized control of the presidential debates precisely because the League was independent, precisely because this womens organization had the guts to stand up to the candidates that the major parties had nominated. The League of Women Voters allowed third-party candidate John B. Anderson to participate in a presidential debate in 1980, and in the decade that followed, the two major parties, Republican and Democrat, sparred with the League. In 1988, the parties tried to force the League into a contract detailing how the debates would be run. Farah explained: It talked about who could be in the audience and how the format would be structured, but the League found that kind of lack of transparency and that kind of candidate control to be fundamentally outrageous and antithetical to our democratic process. They released the contract and stated they refuse to be an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American people and refuse to implement it. Farah said that early contract was tame compared with the binding contract, leaked to Time magazine this week, that governed the so-called town hall, moderated by CNNs Candy Crowley. The 21-page Memorandum of Understanding includes a reference to their standards for candidate eligibility to participate. The CPD requires that a candidate have support from at least 15 percent of the national electorate as determined by five selected national public opinion polling organizations. This is a classic Catch-22. In order to debate, you must have broad support. In order to earn public support, candidates without huge campaign war chests need the access that the televised debates offer. So the Democrats and Republicans control the debates, and limit the publics access to alternative views. If the Green Partys nominee, Jill Stein, had been allowed to debate, what might the public have heard? To find out, our Democracy Now! news hour went ahead and invited major third-party candidates to participate in the debate, virtually, the morning after. In addition to Stein, we had Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party and Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party (Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson declined). Instead of the Obama/Romney debate, where each attempted to trumpet his superior commitment to fossilfuel extraction, the public would have heard Jill Stein say, We support a Green New Deal, which will put everyone back to work, at the same time that it puts a halt to climate change and it makes wars for oil obsolete. Climate change is simply not discussed in these debates. Thats just one example. Imagine if we had a functional electoral system, with genuine, vigorous, representative debates. Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala are on the ballot in 38 states, and available as write-ins for the rest. Rocky Anderson, with his new Justice Party, is on in 15 states. Now that the candidates have been unshackled, its time to unshackle the debates. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

All lectures held at: Naples Daily News Community Room 1100 Immokalee Road, NaplesWe first met Anne Stratton and her husband at a surprise birthday party for a mutual friend. Anne was excited about having just published her first novel, Buried Heart. Preparation for her writing career had begun many years before. A key influence was her dad reading aloud to Anne and her older brother and making up adventures stories featuring them. By eighth grade, she was already hooked on her fathers Ellery Queen mystery magazines. She decided that someday she would write stories like her mothers favorite authors, Mary Roberts Rinehart and Agatha Christie, wrote. Anne earned good grades in high school and enjoyed serving on the student council. She wanted to write for the school paper, but says something always conflicted. Her brother went to Yale, and Annes mother urged her to attend school in the east, too. She went to Vassar on a scholarship, majoring in English and minoring in mathematics (her senior thesis was on Lewis Carroll, aka Charles Lutwidg e Dodgson, a mathematics professor who wrote stories). Anne recalls Vassar was a wonderful but terrifying experience, adding she had never experienced such pressure, nor had she ever received a C-plus grade, or even a B. During her freshman year, she met and began dating the man who would become her husband. Fred Stratton was a friend of her brothers at Yale. They married 48 years ago, the summer following Annes graduation. The Strattons have two daughters and a son. I loved being a mom, Anne says. Seeing my children discover the world gave me new eyes. She wrote short stories whenever she could. She also became familiar with receiving rejection slips. The best ones had encouraging comments, at least, hand-written by the editor, even the guy at The New York Times. I saved those, she laughs. She also started writing for a string of community newspapers and eventually became the author of what she dubs a good news people column called Name Dropping. Over the course of 15 years, she adds, the column helped her hone her writing skills. And each person I interviewed taught me something about life. An avid baseball fan, she was then hired to write a column for the Milwaukee Brewers website. Aimed at women fans, it started as something called From the Female Point of View, but it soon changed to Anne in the Stands. You can find a recent Anne in the Stands at www.milwalkeebrewers.com. She also began writing murder mysteries and piling up rejections. Somewhere along the line, she heard about the Romance Writers of America. Upon joining the association, she found she enjoyed the support of other authors through publications, conferences and workshops. But she continued to experience rejection until September 2008, when Wild Rose Press offered her a contract for her romantic suspense novel involving an uptight public h a t s i bobHARDEN e-mail: email@example.com PROFILES IN PARADISEFirst novel brings childhood goal to fruition Talking points with Anne StrattonMentors: My fth grade teacher, Mrs. Bishop, who helped me feel strong enough to ignore teasing and cruel girlfriends.

She says the idea for Buried Heart had come to her while she was touring the Mayan ruins. As they stood at the foot of the ancient stairway in Copan, Honduras, their guide mentioned that the Mayans had books inscribed on paper made from fig bark. There were only remnants of these documents left, because the Spanish were ordered by the Inquisition to burn works of the devil. She was shocked to think of all the knowledge and history that was lost to fire. What if there was one more codex? she wondered. And what if a handsome archaeology professor had a map that could lead him to its hiding place? And what if the professor fell in love with a woman, and what if thieves were after the map?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 led to a grade point average of .5. When I was in ALC, I was looking around to see who was around me. Know how they say birds of a feather flock together? Well, looking at the birds I was flocking with, I was like, Wow. I do not belong here, the 17-year-old recalls of the moment he shifted, the moment he knew, I absolutely have to do better. The national graduation rate increased from 72 percent in 2001 to 75.5 percent in 2009, according to a report released by a coalition of nonprofits that includes the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University and Americas Promise Alliance headed by former secretary of state Colin Powell. The report, Building a Grad Nation, named 12 states as leaders, collectively accounting for the most significant gains in additional graduates. Florida was listed in this dozen. The Sunshine State was also listed alongside eight other states showing the greatest decline in dropout factories, high schools where at least 60 percent of students do not graduate on time. Probably more so than anybody else in my school, I was going to drop out, says Tyler, who now as a senior at LSHS has raised his GPA to 3.85. Behind his light eyes and shaggy hair, he speaks with a newfound sense of pride and potential. He plans to study psychology, theology and sociology in college. He does not yet know how he will shape three fields of study into a single career, but he credits his turnaround to a program called AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID students take honors-level and Advanced Placement courses but receive more instructional support to motivate and prepare them for college. Its implementation of programs such as AVID has made Tylers school a standout among Southwest Florida public schools; LSHS has reduced its dropout rate from 3.9 percent in 2005-06 to .5 percent in 2010-11. One assistant principal puts it this way, We put college in their face. College pennants line the halls of LSHS. Outside every classroom door, teachers hang certificates showing where they went to university. A sign above AVID Coordinator Monica Walkers door reads: I am in Walkers class and I am going to college! Tyler didnt even notice the certificates and signs until after his ALC awakening. His favorite sign reads: Teach dont tell. If he could impart one lesson on his underclassmen, he says, it would be: Make your mistakes as fast as you can Without high school, without education, youre not going to be happy. Statistics from school year 2010-11 show Lee County has a 1.9 percent dropout rate. Collier County holds the same, 1.9 percent; Charlotte County, 2.4 percent. This means dropout numbers are up in Charlotte; Collier numbers seem steady; and Lee numbers have slightly curved up again. School districts are awaiting 2011-12 statistics, already in the thick of the 201213 year. By the time these numbers are configured, theyre dated. They do not show what students are doing right now. Rather than putting past tense on a present state, heres what Southwest Florida students are saying today: The bleak economy has given their high school degree more luster. Hearing there are no jobs makes them want a better job, an essential job, one they wont lose in times of trouble. As they face higher standards, more work and tougher tests in school, some students might think of giving up. But those students who approach their school counselors and utter the sensitive words, I want to drop out, really mean to say, Please help. I have never met a student who says, I dont want a high school diploma. I want to be unsuccessful. I want to fail, says Lori Brooks, coordinator of school counseling services for Lee County schools. Every student wants to be successful, every student wants it all. Working as a high school counselor for 19 years before taking on a district role, Ms. Brooks noticed a trend. If their peers were dropping out of school, they tended to consider it more seriously, she says. They tended to start looking in that direction. Although she knows the reasons kids have for dropping out of high school are many and varied, she says the one she heard most often was: My friends arent going to school anymore. I want to do the same thing. Some students feel an economic strain to leave school and find a job so they can help out financially at home. Some high school students have babies. In a dream world, we would want every student to finish high school and earn their diploma and walk across the stage for graduation and feel the culmination of 13 years of education, grades K-12, Ms. Brooks says. Realistically speaking students have many circumstances that impede school We must try and help them find another way to their high school diploma. When students exhibit disinterest or start to disconnect from the classroom, nontraditional means of education enter the conversation charter schools, technical or vocational schools, virtual school.Its not for dumb peopleBrenaye Newell had a rough time at Lemon Bay High School. She was trying hard, but she was failing. I figured I would just say forget it, concedes the 16-year-old, who had resigned herself to dropping out. Brenaye heard there was an opportunity for people like me at The Academy, an alternative high school in Port Charlotte. She decided to give it a shot, wanting to earn her high school diploma in order to enroll in the Army as soon as she possibly could. When I came here and saw how they teach how they spend one-on-one time with people, I saw it wasnt just me, there are other people struggling, she says. I dont think so bad of myself. Neither of Brenayes parents graduated high school. Seeing their financial struggles pushes her to keep making all As and Bs at The Academy. Basically, it makes me want to show them how its done, says the young lady, smiling with a pierced beauty mark above her lip. The Academy holds the same requirements as any high school. Brenaye must earn 24 credits to graduate. She now has 15. The Academys not for dumb people, Brenaye clarifies. People think kids go to The Academy because theyre special, she says, putting the word in air quotes. Kids come here for many different reasons, like students who have been held back a year or those with sporadic attendance. As she sits beside her classmate Sarah Lenahan in their leadership class, the two girls go over reasons why their peers might be dropping out of school: Impatience. Frustration. Wanting money now versus making more money later. They may think theyre not going to get to college anyway, so they quit now, says Sarah. A lot of people give up. Sarah never thought of dropping out, but she feared if she stayed at Charlotte High School, she would never graduate. I have experienced a lot in my life, and I dont want to experience that anymore, she says thoughtfully. I feel if I better myself, I can get out of where I am now. Ill do anything to make myself better. Sarahs father dropped out of high school his sophomore year. He had a job then; now hes disabled. He convinced me, I must not drop out. I must not make the same mistake he did. So she transferred to The Academy, where the 18-year-old needs only two more credits to graduate. My teachers convinced me I can better myself, she says. I never felt like that before. Sarah knows that without a high school diploma, she will not find a job that makes her happy. She wants to be a veterinarian. She wants a job she loves, one that makes her money, but more so, one that brings her confidence. I want to go up, she says. Her classes at The Academy, like the leadership one she takes with Brenaye, have taught Sarah that theres nothing wrong with her, but that some of her choices were wrong. I never before used to think about my decisions before I made them, she says. Now I think about everything, before I say or do anything. Although their school is labeled an alternative school, Sarah and Brenaye think of it more as a motivational school. And their sentiment motivates Chantal Phillips, director of intervention and dropout prevention for Charlotte County public schools. In 2007-08, the dropout rate in Florida was 2.6 percent. Back then in Charlotte County, it was 1.5 percent. We were doing awesome, Ms. Phillips says. But, she regretfully reports, those numbers are now almost inverse: The states dropout rate is now 1.9 percent; Charlotte Countys rate is 2.4 percent. In response, Charlotte County schools assembled an advisory group to figure out Whats going on here? Now when students say they are thinking of dropping out, high school social workers immediately arrange for them to have an interview with the principal of The Academy, to see if the alternative better resonates with them. The advisory committee also initiated a program called SNAP Students Needing A Pathway for Success. Potential dropouts meet at Town Center Mall four nights a week to study core subjects and either transition into an alternative school or feel better prepared to pass their GED exam. Such initiatives have given Ms. Phillips a sense of renewed hope. Were already SCHOOLFrom page 1 High school graduates will earn $130,000 more over the course of their lifetimes than high school dropouts. Moving just one student from dropout status to graduate status would yield more than $200,000 in higher tax revenues and would lower government expenditures over the course of the students life.Source: Building a Grad Nation annual update 2012 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYAbove: Vanessa Perard did not plan on college until she participated in the AVID program at Lehigh Senior High.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 NEWS A9 seeing a big difference, she says. Were doing a better job at capturing kids while theyre still with us and getting them into the right programs. As a side note to the countys previous increase in dropouts, she points to an increase in free and reduced lunch. Over the past five years, the number of Charlotte County students receiving free and reduced lunch has jumped from 48 percent to 62 percent. I dont mean to sound like Im looking for excuses, Ms. Phillips says of mentioning an economic influence on dropout rates. Our resources have been stretched, so that one-on-one attention (students) are always looking for, theyre getting less and less of that. Larger class sizes, tougher graduation requirements, economic change Ms. Phillips describes the convergence by saying, Its like a perfect storm.Invest in youChristy Kutz, director of student services for Collier County Public Schools, credits the economy for her districts consistent decline in dropouts. From 2006 to 2011, Collier dropout rates have dropped from 2.7 percent to 1.9 percent. When the economys doing really good and there are plentiful jobs, we see kids leave and go to work because they can make money, Ms. Kutz says. That isnt the case right now. There are no jobs. More kids are choosing to stay in school and work toward their diploma because there isnt a job to lure them away from school. She has seen increased interest in Lorenzo Walker Technical High School, suggesting more and more students might be moving away from traditional academics and turning toward technology training. Theyre hired right out of that program, Ms. Kutz says of Lorenzo Walker students, who receive postsecondary technical certification. When students do not seek out alternative programs or vocational training but feel a financial need to drop out of high school and help their families, economist Aysegul Timur, Ph.D., says, Theyre not helping. Theyre saving the day. But not saving tomorrow. Professor and program chair of business/public administration at Hodges University, Dr. Timur says educators must instill the vision in their students that education pays. Dropping out of high school must not be an option. High school dropouts limit their place in the workforce, she says. They cannot go to college. I emphasize all the time, going to school, going to college is the biggest investment you can make in yourself. Invest in you. Nobody can take that away from you, she says. The economy can go bad, you can lose your house, you can lose anything, but if you have a degree, you will survive and recover. More than any economic cost, Dr. Timur wonders about the cost of high school dropouts on society. She feels education enlightens decisions. She poses this against the big conversation of late: the presidential election. A lot of people are watching the debates and dont know exactly whats going on, she says. How will they make the best decision for themselves? How will they make the best decision for all of us? With the costs of dropping out of high school endless and immeasurable, Dr. Timur turns to its caveat: Theres no danger in too much education.

Information stations will provide details about the projects engineering, water-quality goals, environmental effects and taxiway extension design. Brief overview presentations will be repeated throughout the two-hour event, and visitors will have the opportunity to discuss the project with airport staff and project consultants. The open house will be held in the airports commercial terminal on the south side of the airport at 500 Terminal Drive. The NAA has secured initial grants totaling almost $1.2 million from the Federal Aviation Administration and Florida Department of Transportation for the project. Additional grants are expected to fund 95 percent of the $8 million-plus project, scheduled to launch in spring 2013, as well as two years of monitoring the results of the water-management system improvements. If performance monitoring confirms predictions, the water-management system improvements could become a regional or national model. Naples Municipal Airport takes stormwater runoff from industrial land east of the airport. This project is designed to test and validate that water leaving the airport and flowing into the Gordon River and Naples Bay is as clean as possible. The water-management system improvements include master drainage planning, pre-project water quality and wildlife monitoring, computational fluid dynamics modeling, permitting, construction of baffles to redirect water moving through existing ponds and post-project water monitoring. The project also includes the extension of Taxiway A to provide easier access to the end of Runway 23. The extension will enhance airport safety and operations by eliminating the need for aircraft leaving from the east side of the airport to cross the active runway to take off. Naples Municipal Airport, a certificated air carrier airport, is home to flight schools, air charter operators and corporate aviation and nonaviation businesses as well as fire/rescue services, mosquito control, car rental agencies and the aviation unit of the Collier County Sheriffs Office. All funds used for the airports operation, maintenance and improvements are generated from activities at the airport or from federal and state grants; the airport receives no property tax dollars. Work begins on RSW expansionThe Lee County Port Authority has begun construction on the $40 million apron and taxiway expansion at Southwest Florida International Airport to enhance the area around the passenger terminal for safe movement and parking of aircraft as well as additional taxiways. Work is targeted for completion in December 2013. Construction will not affect the traveling public. The project is designed to provide more space for aircraft taxiing between the runway and terminal gates, additional paved areas for overnight and diverted aircraft parking and a long-term, crossfield taxiway system linking the existing runway to the future parallel runway. Funding for the work will come from the Lee County Port Authority and the Florida Department of Transportation. RSW served more than 7.5 million passengers in 2011 and is one of the top 50 U.S. airports for passenger traffic. No ad valorem (property) taxes are used for airport operation or construction.

Marco eagles feathering their nestFoundation plans welcome back fundraiser BY LINDA TURNERSpecial to Florida WeeklyEagle nesting season has officially begun, and the bald eagles are busy rebuilding their nest in the center of the Marco Eagle Sanctuary on Tigertail Court on Marco Island. Paleo and Calusa (named by students at Tommy Barfield Elementary School) have been observed flying from dawn until dusk collecting new material for their treetop home. Homeowners near the sanctuary who cut mango branches into uniform lengths and stacked them on the ground at the edge of their yards have reported seeing the majestic birds swoop down to snatch a branch in their beaks, fly up tossing the branch in the air, then catch it in their talons to take back to the nest tree. This week, Paleo and Calusa seem to be attracted to gathering dried palm branches and pine branches. Looking through the telescope it is apparent that the eagles do not always agree on where to place the branches in the nest. As soon as one leaves the nest, (or just looks the other way), the other one often moves the recently placed branch. Sometimes, as Paleo starts to move a branch, Calusa places her talon over it and snaps at him with her beak as if to say, I like it where it is! Despite their occasional remodeling differences, the nest is progressing and is now deep enough for the eagles to sit. It is too soon to estimate when this seasons eaglets will arrive. Last season, two eaglets hatched in mid-January, and the season before, two eaglets hatched in mid-December. What is certain, however, is that the number of visitors stopping at the sanctuary with binoculars and cameras equipped with telescopic lenses will only increase in the weeks ahead. To celebrate the beginning of the 2012-13 nesting season, the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation is hosting a fundraiser from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, at the Snook Inn. For $25, guests can enjoy food, ice tea or soda, live entertainment, door prizes and a 50-50 raffle. Tickets will be available at the door and can also be purchased in advance at www. marcoeaglesanctuaryfoundation.org or by mailing a check to MESF, P.O Box 983, Marco Island, FL 34146 by Nov. 6. All proceeds will benefit the allvolunteer foundation.

Sunday, October 28, 2012 10:00am-1:00pm The Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa Honorary Chair Former Florida Everblades Star Tom BuckleyFull Everblades Team Event!Auctions full of Sports Memorabilia, Trips & Adventures Call 239-343-6950 for reservations NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 A13 Horse show jumping, minus the horseHorse show jumping is a longtime Olympics sport, but for the last 10 years, equestrians have been performing in horseless show jumping, in which horse courses are run by riders on foot (who, by the way, do not straddle broomsticks). According to an October report in The Wall Street Journal, an international association headed by retired pro equestrian Jessica Newman produces at least 15 shows a year, with between 40 to 130 competitors galloping over jumps that vary from 2 to 4 feet high (5 feet in Grand Prix events), with the riders graded as if they were on horses (timed, with points off for contacting the rails). Explained Newman about the shows success: Its just fun to be a horse.Cultural diversity Malaysias Education Ministry has held at least 10 seminars recently to teach parents and teachers how to head off the pesky homosexuality that their kids may be in danger of developing. According to officials, sure signs are when boys wear V-neck or sleeveless shirts or carry big handbags. For girls, the most obvious sign is having no affection for boys. Last year, according to a September Reuters report, the government set up camps specifically to teach masculine behavior to effeminate boys. Championship eaters gobble down hot dogs on New Yorks Coney Island, but in August, when a Filipino restaurant in Brooklyn wanted a more ethnic contest, it offered plates of baluts the Philippine delicacy of duck fetuses. Wayne Algenio won, stuffing 18 down his throat in five minutes. Typically, the baluts have barely begun to develop, sometimes allowing a lucky diner to sense in his mouth the crackle of a beak or the tickle of a feather. Since baluts are exotic, they are considered to be (as is often the case in Asia) aphrodisiacs. Surviving a cobra bite in Nepal is simple, some natives believe. If the victim bites the snake right back, to its death, the venom is rendered harmless. One confident farmer bitten in August in Biratnagar told BBC News that he went about his business normally after fatally biting his attacker and survived only after his family convinced him that perhaps the custom was ridiculous and hauled him to a hospital.Whale discharges in the news In August, schoolboy Charlie Naysmith of Christchurch, England, taking a nature walk near Hengistbury Head beach, came upon a rocklike substance that turned out to be petrified whale vomit which, to his surprise, proved worth the equivalent of from $16,000 to $64,000. Ambergris, a waxy buildup from the intestines of a sperm whale, produces a foul odor but is valuable commercially for prolonging the scent of a perfume. (Actually, after floating in the sun, on salt water, for decades, the ambergris on the beach was smooth and sweet-smelling.) Tucker, an 8-year-old black Labrador mix, is the only dog in the world trained to detect the faint whiff of the tiniest specks of whale feces in the open ocean water (and from as far as a mile away!). A September New York Times dispatch from coastal Washington state noted that the 85 or so orcas that populate the area have been identified and tracked for decades, but locating them at any given time was always a problem until Tucker came along. One of his trainers explained that the dogs directional signals are accurate but often subtle (such as by a twitch of the ear).PerspectiveThe Bronx, where nearly one-third of the population lives in poverty, is the poorest of the five New York City boroughs, with per-capita income 70 percent lower than neighboring Manhattans. Yet among the citys most ambitious public works projects under construction is an 18-hole golf course in the Bronxs Ferry Point Park, estimated to cost the city $97 million, according to a September New York Times report. Furthermore, golf may be losing popularity. The Times reported that rounds of golf in New York City have dwindled (from 880,000 on 12 municipal courses in 1966 to 561,000 on 13 courses in 2011). From the citys standpoint, it gets a course to be operated by a Donald Trump company and is hoping to build a waterfront esplanade adjacent to the course.Questionable judgmentsAs News of the Weird mentioned in July, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control found 11 instances since 2000 in which ultra-Orthodox circumcision priests (mohelim) had passed along the herpes simplex virus from their saliva when they used the ancient method of blood-removal from the wound by sucking it clean. Responding in September, New York Citys Health Department ordered the mohelim to warn parents of the danger and to require written consent for the ritual, but in October, three rabbis and three Jewish organizations challenged the order in federal court, arguing that Jewish law requires that particular method of blood removal. (According to the CDC, in 10 of the 11 cases, hospitalization was required, and two boys died.)Least-competent criminals Todd Kettler, 37, was arrested in October in Kalamazoo T ownship, Mich., and charged with robbing a Southfield, Mich., bank five days earlier. The manager of a strip club in the Township had noticed that Mr. Kettler was handing women money saturated with red dye, and called the police. Two men, ages 45 and 42, were arrested in Toronto in September after they walked into a neighborhood moneytransfer store with $520,250 in a duffel bag and attempted to wire that amount to an address in Los Angeles. Police charged them in connection with an ongoing money-laundering investigation. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

This year is no exception. The high-tech buggies that race today are much sleeker and faster than those in the early days, which were fashioned from whatever type of vehicle might possibly make it through the mire of the muddy tater patch. The very first swamp buggy races, which started a few years before the event became an annual to-do, were comprised of roughly a dozen hunters who simply sought the glory of finishing first. As more racers became involved, a grand prize was added (usually a shotgun). In 1949, a new sport was off to the races; that year, the first official Swamp Buggy Races were broadcast on ABCs Wild World of Sports. Johnny Jones won that inaugural competition, which drew an estimated 50 participants. The first-ever Swamp Buggy Days celebration also took place that same year, 63 years ago. A grand parade through Naples was organized, and businesses even closed for the day. And, as the popularity of the races continued to grow, so did the prizes for the racers. Cash prizes replaced shotguns and turkeys. And with the advent of cash prizes reaching into the thousands of dollars, the urge to race faster grew. The giant, lumbering buggies, which were primarily hunting vehicles, gradually were replaced by faster machines built especially for the fledgling sport. Neapolitan Ed Frank is regarded as the father and inventor of the swamp buggy, creating his skeeter buggy between 1918 and 1920, using parts from a junked Model T Ford and an orange crate for the seat. After Mr. Frank perfected his design by adding dual rear wheels along with upside-down axels to give him more clearance when driving over tree stump, his brother-in-law, George Espenlaub, enhanced the buggy with another set of cutout tires that increased the width of the wheels and provided greater traction. The Swamp Buggy Races have been held in three locations since they began, starting in at the old Huddleston Pond, on the grounds of NCH Hospital downtown. That spot was soon deemed unsuitable and not challenging enough, however, and the hunt was on for a new track. That search led to a tater patch that belonged to Benny Morris, who leased it for farming potatoes and other vegetables there in the thick marl on Radio Road and in the vicinity of Taylor Rental today. Todays racetrack, known as the Florida Sports Park, is off Collier Boulevard in East Naples. In addition to the aforementioned Mr. Frank and his brother-in-law, legends of the Swamp Buggy Races include R.L. Walker, Leonard Chesser, Lonnie Chesser, Eddie Chesser, Terry Langford, Lee Hancock and David Sims, riding on machines bearing names such as Dats It!, Tumble Bug, Rubber Duck, Roll On, The Outlaw II, Cold Duck and The Patriot. maureenSULLIVAN-HARTUNGmshwrites@gmail.com COLLIER COUNTY MUSEUMS / COURTESY PHOTOAn early swamp buggy.

WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 A19 Three times the funNowadays the Swamp Buggy Races take place three times a year in October, January and March with national television crews on had for the spectacle each time. This years October race actually takes place the first weekend of November. The fall race is always preceded by the Swamp Buggy Parade, which this year is set for Saturday, Nov. 3, beginning at 10 a.m. at U.S. 41 and Fleischman Boulevard and heading down the Trail to Third Avenue South. The Florida Sports Park is home of the famed Mile O Mud, which is actually an oval track thats seveneighths of a mile long. It has racing lanes that are approximately 60 feet wide, and theres a 1/8-mile lane slashed through the center. The Sippy Hole in front of the grandstand is the largest pit on the track. Its named after a legendary driver, Mississippi Milton Morris, who was known to constantly stall in the hole. Its also where the winner jumps in, along with the Swamp Buggy Queen, at the finish of the race every year. This tradition began in 1957, when H.W. McCurry got so excited after winning the race that he grabbed the queen and jumped into the muddy hole. The Swamp Buggy Queen tradition goes back to 1949. Each spring a pageant is held and a winner selected to preside over all Swamp Buggy Race related activities.

She describes the artistic process as being like a bridge between the inner world, the emotion theyre processing, and the outer world. The art is like a platform or an excuse to be able to go deeper into whats going on. Millie thinks of her paintings as an abstract journal, a record of fears, thoughts and emotions that helps her keep track of her progress. You can tell all that by colors, the energy from it, how you feel about it, she says. Some paintings might make you happy, others angry. You have to base it on emotions you have at that moment. And your emotions can change every time you look at the painting. Trauma is something residents of the Transitional Living Center in Fort Myers, a place for people recovering from substance abuse and psychological illness, are also familiar with. Nearly 70 percent of them have experienced trauma in some form, whether sexual, physical or psychological, according to Rosemary Boisvert, managing director of the center. Drawing, painting, music and journaling are encouraged there, though generally not in the structured group sessions found at the Shelter for Abused Women & Children, to help people move on from or accept these experiences. Twice a month, the Transitional Living Center includes a drum circle in its residents routine. Ms. Boisvert has been amazed by the circles effect. Some of the patients hard-core street people. come in going, Im not going to beat a drum, she says. But by the end of the session, theyre laughing, smiling theyre really involved with it. Im amazed to watch the transformation.Looking insideIn Christina Skibickis super-close-up photograph of a bee, the insects huge goggle eye peers out like a high-tech device for capturing reality. Its part of a series of close-up pictures Ms. Skibicki has been working on that has grown in part out of the Healing Arts painting group she attends at the Shelter every week. In her decade running the Healing Arts program, Ms. Gomez says, she has noticed that eyes of all kinds are a recurring theme among participants. If not the strange, alien eyes of bees, then human eyes. Big eyes, or one eye open, or eyes looking through a fog Thats a motif that comes up again and again and again, she says. Its like theres a need for hypervigilance, thats the way I interpret it; theres a need to see through things. Photographer Ms. Skibicki testifies that the artistic process does help her see through things, and see inward most of all. It really helps me to connect to, I guess, my inner self my higher being, she says. I know that if I dont have anybody or anywhere to turn to, I have my art. It will always be there for me. Rhonda, 63, sought help at the Shelter six months ago, moving away from a pattern of physically and mentally abusive relationships that began with her mother when she was a child. Being stuck in such a situation was like being underground, underwater, breathing through a tube just for air, she says. In the Healing Arts program, Rhonda works on creative writing to help open up those airways. After youre with an abusive person, you forget you have all this to give, she says. That gets taken from you. These groups help to build that up again. A woman who attends a writing group on Thursdays says her recent efforts have focused on how I view myself as a human being and how I wish to view myself. One of the common exercises the group works on is writing a list of things that make them angry. Some people want to talk about it and examine it, the woman says. For other people, they just want it on the paper. Shes not sure how long shell stay with the writing group, but shes thankful that it has helped her through a difficult time. The healing period for some abuse victims can be quite long, and Healing Arts continues to be available for those who need it, she adds. At the time people are living in the Shelter or shortly thereafter, they are still trying to process some of the things that occurred. looking back on incidents can be incredibly emotional, she says. Eventually, she concludes, the healing process, aided by things such as Healing Arts, can get victims to the point where they look back like its a fact of life and not something so emotionally charged.

Biggest Loser study finds modest diet and exercise can sustain weight lossExercise and healthy eating reduce body fat and preserve muscle in adults better than diet alone, according to a study funded and conducted by National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health. The study was recently published online in Obesity and will be in a future print edition. NIDDK senior investigator Kevin Hall, Ph.D., analyzed the individual effects of daily strenuous exercise and a restricted diet by examining data from 11 participants from the reality television program The Biggest Loser. The program shows obese adults losing large amounts of weight over several months. Participants were initially isolated on a ranch followed by an extended period at home. By including the shows contestants as voluntary study participants, this research took advantage of a cost-efficient opportunity to study a small group of obese individuals already engaged in an intensive lifestyle intervention, said Dr. Hall, who has no financial ties and no other affiliation to the show. Researchers measured body fat, total energy expenditure and resting metabolic rate the energy burned during inactivity three times: at the start of the program, at week six, and at week 30, which was at least 17 weeks after participants returned home. Participation in the program led to an average weight loss of 128 pounds, with about 82 percent of that coming from body fat, and the rest from lean tissue like muscle. Preserving lean tissue, even during rapid and substantial weight loss, helps maintain strength and mobility and reduces risk of injury, among other benefits. At the competitions end, diet alone was calculated to be responsible for more weight loss than exercise, with 65 percent of the weight loss consisting of body fat and 35 percent consisting of lean mass like muscle. In contrast, the model calculated that exercise alone resulted in participants losing only fat, and no muscle. The simulation of exercise alone also estimated a small increase in lean mass despite overall weight loss. The simulations also suggest that the participants could sustain their weight loss and avoid weight regain by adopting more moderate lifestyle changes like 20 minutes of daily vigorous exercise and a 20 percent calorie restriction than those demonstrated on the television program. More than two-thirds of U.S. adults age 20 and older are overweight or obese, and more than one-third of adults are obese. Excess weight can lead to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and certain cancers. For more information about the NIDDK and its programs, see www. niddk.nih.gov.

Expires 10/31/12 PET TALESStop the big digExercise, supervision and redirection will keep your lawn free of holes BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickOver the Labor Day weekend, a puppy joined my family. While hes still pretty small, he has a lot of growing to do, especially if hes to help fill the hole in my heart left by the death of my 16-year-old Sheltie, Drew. The transition from a very old dog Drew was managed with daily fluids and medicine for kidney failure a year before his passing to a lively young puppy can be jarring. Drew had been a well-mannered adult since the Clinton administration, and young Ned has a normal puppy streak of naughty. Which is why I wasnt really prepared when I came upon a hole in the backyard clearly dug by Neds little paws. With a puppy, its pretty easy to catch and correct unwanted behavior, but its not impossible even with a grown dog. As with any behavior, you have to get to the root of the problem before you can come up with a fair approach to minimizing the damage. Like many behaviors people find troubling, digging is natural for dogs, with any number of triggers driving the activity. Among them: Wanderlust. Some dogs, especially unneutered males, have a strong desire to dig their way out of the yard, especially when the breeze carries the enticing scent of a female in heat. Prey drive. Subterranean wildlife can be irresistible to some dogs, especially to terriers or terrier mixes breeds developed to dig vermin from their lairs. Need for shelter. A well-dug den can keep a dog cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Although any breed or mix can show an interest in making a den, the behavior is more common in breeds such as huskies and malamutes. Recreation. Digging is just plain fun. This is Neds motivation, Im pretty sure. Excess energy and boredom. This combination is either directly responsible or a contributing factor in most canine behavior problems. The trick to having a nice yard and a happy dog is to do what you can to eliminate the triggers for digging, and then take your pets needs into account when planning your landscaping. Neutering can greatly reduce the desire to wander. If wildlifes a problem, contact your local agricultural extension for tips on how to get the pests to give your yard a skip. And make sure your pet has the shelter he needs to stay comfortable no matter the weather. Every dog needs an exercise program, with the emphasis on heart-thumping aerobic interludes, such as a daily run or a game of fetch. If you keep your pet well exercised, hell be less likely to indulge in destructive behaviors. A tired dog is always a good dog! Some trainers suggest giving dogs an area where its OK to dig, and training them to use it. This is an especially good strategy for dogs who just love to dig. The final tip? Design your yard for compromise. Make a less visible part of the yard a dog-friendly, free-dig zone, and limit your pet to that area when you cant be there to supervise. Provide safe chew toys to keep him occupied, such as peanu t butt er-stuffed Kongs. Discourage digging in off-limits areas by filling in holes and covering them with chicken wire and large rocks. If you address the underlying issues that cause digging and then allow your dog the opportunity to do some of what comes naturally in an area thats acceptable to you both, youll find that its indeed possible to have a yard you can be proud to show off. Ned seemed pretty easily distracted and pretty happy to gnaw on a chew toy rather than continue with his digging. But if he shows signs of getting a real kick of the excavations, Ill be setting him up with an area where he can dig in with my approval. Many dogs enjoy digging, but few owners want holes in their lawns. Redirecting the activity to a less visible area may be a compromise that both you and your pet can live with.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! MONEY & INVESTING Who can change America?Most voters understand that we are at a financial tipping point and they are trying to figure out what is needed for America to change for the better. They want to determine who is the most likely of the presidential candidates to get the job done. Voters questions focus on money: their money or lack thereof, their childrens future money, their neighbors money, their money due from Medicare and Social Security, their countrys money, even Chinas money. Money was the predominant theme in the questions asked by the audience in the second presidential debate. And rightly so, since the U.S. has a big money problem: $16 trillion in debt currently, with budgets showing additional deficits of approximately $1 trillion in each of the next four years plus huge unfunded liabilities for entitlement programs. Unemployment is 7.8 percent. The combined unemployed and underemployment rate is 12.7 percent. This is Greece in the making! Most middle income Americans understand that although tweaks to their brackets income taxation are being dangled to capture their votes, solutions to the severe economic problems of our country are of far greater importance than whether they receive another couple thousand dollars in tax cuts or if they get a lump sum of allowable tax deductions. The middle income bracket does not need tutoring in primal concepts such as: living within your means (as opposed to the U.S. government, which does not); leaving your children an inheritance of some sort but certainly not bequeathing your debts to them (as opposed to the current U.S. budgets deficit trajectory, which places a future horrific tax burden on our children); and maintaining the U.S. dollar as the worlds reserve currency (as opposed to decades of monetary, fiscal and trade policies that have allowed its great fall and allowed China to proceed with plans to dethrone the dollar.) These middle income Americans want more economic growth as they know it solves a lot of problems. They understand that gridlock gets us nowhere and that compromise creates unity, all within a spirit of mutual respect. Tax code tweaks are non-solutions; they merely dance around the 16 trillion pound elephant in the room. Sure, they are vote-getters, but they are not economic game-changers. Some very big things have to happen to downsize that elephant. Game-changers are needed. In my estimation, the best way and only viable way to reverse the economic path of the U.S. is to create jobs. GDP has to grow faster than 2.5 percent just for unemployment to remain unchanged. Want to get unemployment down from 8 percent nosebleed levels? Grow a lot faster than 2.5 percent. Gross Domestic Product equals consumer spending plus g overnment spending plus business investment plus net exports. For GDP to grow, some portion of that equation needs to grow. There is no solution outside of that equation. Which of the components of the GDP equation can have meaningful growth so that we can climb out of our debt hole? Consuming more stuff is not a solution; we are at the highest percentage levels of GDP for consumer spending in the world. Can GDP grow through more government spending? The U.S. government is already $16 trillion in debt. Consider what we got for the $5 trillion spent by the government since the financial debacle: an economy that is growing below 2 percent and a zero gain in number employed. Five million lost jobs plus five million created jobs equals a zero net increase in jobs. So what remains that can drive growth in jobs? The answer is expansion in private (small and large) business investment and a reversal in our trade deficit. Change the flow of business investment from overseas to return to the U.S.? Businesses will expand in the U.S. if: there is certainty in taxation rates and rates are lowered to be competitive with global taxation rates; health care obligations are known and manageable; excessive government regulation is rolled back; companies have access to engineers, scientists etc.; the energy resources within our borders are used to make us energy independent; our legislators fashion solutions to runaway government deficit spendingfor openers. Until we effect some of these game changers, U.S. businesses will continue to expand plants overseas and hire overseas. Its easy to find countries that greet them with open arms. These are big-time money problems. Tweaking taxes, moving a federal expense from one category to another, lowering interest rates (to where? zero?) and more rhetoric are not solutions. So ask yourself: Who of the two candidates would you pick to manage your money, your childrens money, your countrys money? True, the countrys challenges are not all money related. But unless the money problems are fixed now, we might not have another good chance of digging out of the financial hole.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 BUSINESS B5 That site allows Apple users to locate and review consultants. But since Microsoft Word commands something like 92 percent of the market, how much work can there be for these specialists? Lately, a lot. They instruct individuals, set up efficient uses for small businesses, and create efficiency and order where there might seem to be none, for many. What Ive found, and Rene and Patrick agree with me, is that IOS devices, the iPhone and iPad, are improving the market, says Mr. Conway. Theyre improving our client base. People start off with these then go out and get a MacBook Pro. I have a lot of high-end residential clients, for example, who switched to that all based on using the iPhone. Business, in other words, is booming. The three men would seem to be in tight competition, therefore. But in fact they work more like a team, sharing and referring business as they go, they say. Were all independent of each other, but were held together in a team put together by Apple, explains Mr. Garcia. The requirements are stringent: You have to be certified. Then you have to be a member in good standing, in business for while, to be an Apple consultant. Theres a lot more work than ever before because of the increase of Apples market share. Each came to Apple his own way. Mr. Garcia and Mr. Junkroski both arrived in the business from their educations. Mr. Conway did not, at least not directly. Way back in his youth, Mr. Conway joined the Air Force. He took some tests. Before long, he found himself assigned to a presidential support unit operating out of Andrews Air Force base. This was the 1980s, when computers were just becoming common, and we handled the information and communications systems whenever the president or his family or dignitaries would fly to or from Andrews, he recalls. After the first Persian Gulf War, I came home and attended college at Edison and at USF in Tampa. In college I started to use the Mac for graphics and desktop publishing. It took off from there. Now, he describes his home-based business, which includes a skilled parttime technician and a sophisticated electrician, this way: I mostly do Mac setup and configuration, problem-solving both software and hardware, hardware repair and upgrades for laptops and desktops, PC and Mac integration and data migration, networking, remote screen-sharing support, networking assessment and network installation, Mac server support for small and home-based businesses, backup and printer solutions, Mac interface basics and software training one on one. I also do IOS device management, setup, syncing and training, along with digital workflow management. Simple enough? Well, yes, in Mr. Conways hands. He began in part by getting the Apple certification to support two regional Apple stores and now there are four, including a huge store in Tampa where he hopes to expand his business one day soon, he notes. The money is good $90 per hour for one-time short consults in a home or business, and less than that for more involved projects, he says. I dont have a lot of overhead 95 percent of my work is on site. I run a virtual office out of home, and I have a lab here at home where I can do troubleshooting and upgrades when necessary.Configuring the futureMr. Garcia, meanwhile, like Mr. Junkroski, has his own specialties, as well. My company tries to bridge the gap between Apple and Microsoft thats our niche, he says. We do a lot with wireless mesh. We just finished a project putting together iPads with students at St. John Neumann Catholic High School in Naples. Starting this year, the students all get iPads the majority of books get delivered on iPads. No more textbooks. And were working on a Mac lab integrated into a Microsoft service system. All the end-user computers are pretty much Apples, and the servers are Microsoft. People love it, and they record their observations in critical analyses on the Apple website. Patrick came out and fixed my problem quickly and efficiently, and even left me some equipment to use to fix additional problems. I would highly recommend them, wrote one customer of Mr. Junkroskis company, Technology Pros. Each of them has many similar reviews. As a company, Apple remains the apple of Mr. Conways eye, nowadays, because of its potential. Mac is one of the only technology companies with room to grow, he explains. Plus it has the most money of any technology company in the world. And he plans to grow with it if he can keep up with what business he already has. Theres a big market here. Yes, its seasonal, but I have about 2,000 clients and half of them call me back whenever they return. Its a niche market. I believe in Apple and in Steve Jobss whole concept. Its a good place to be.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. ROA 101If youre studying companies as possible investments, its good to get a handle on how capital-intensive they are and how well they put their assets to work. Companies such as manufacturers, retailers, railroads and airlines are typically capital-intensive, requiring costly equipment to generate earnings. Businesses with lighter business models (consulting firms and software companies, for example) can be more attractive, as they dont have lots of factories, storefronts or inventory. A companys return on assets (ROA) reflects how much value its getting from its assets. Youll find all the numbers you need on a companys recent balance sheet and income statement, in the back of its annual report. As an example, lets review Boeings fiscal 2011 results. Return on assets is determined by dividing net income for a period by total assets during that period. Before we proceed further, know that net income is reported on a companys income statement, and income statements reflect a period of time, such as a quarter or year. Net assets are found on the companys balance sheets, which reflect the state of the company at one moment in time. For 2011, Boeing reported $4 billion in net income. To get its total assets during that period, well have to average its total assets as of the end of 2010 and 2011. Those numbers are $68.6 billion and $80 billion, respectively. Their average is $74.3 billion. So dividing $4 by $74.3, we get .054, or 5.4 percent. This shows that Boeing creates 5.4 cents of earnings from each dollar of assets. The higher the ROA the better, of course. Once you have a firms ROA, you can compare it with others in the same industry. Its also helpful to track how a companys ROA changes over time, to see if its becoming more efficient at wringing value from assets or less so. Boeings ROA has generally been rising lately. You can often find a companys ROA (both current and past numbers) ready for you at websites featuring stock data, such as caps.fool.com or morningstar.com. Big, Dangerous DividendI bought a huge position in Alaska Communications Systems back in September 2011, as it was offering a massive double-digit dividend yield. I didnt follow it closely, though, and in November I realized that the stock had fallen sharply on news that the company was considering a dividend cut. It fell more in December, when the payout was cut by 77 percent. I had been thinking Verizon would buy the company and send the shares up. At least I did sell half my shares and moved that money into a stock that grew. P.C., Woodbridge, Conn.The Fool Responds: Verizon didnt buy Alaska Communications, and actually ended up moving into its territory to compete more. Alaska is still around, though, and recently offered an 8.8 percent yield but thats largely because the stock price has fallen so much. You were smart to move some of your remaining money into a stock that inspired more confidence. Its always best to keep our money in our best ideas, and its silly to wait to recover losses in companies where weve lost faith. Founded in 1859 and headquartered in Ohio, Im a world leader in self-service equipment and security systems. (You may know me from my voting machines, but as of 2009, Im mostly out of that business.) My safes made it through the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. I was a pioneer in drive-up banking and ATMs and have sold pneumatic tube delivery systems. I even developed teargas defense systems for banks. In World War II, I armor-plated military aircraft. My technology is protecting the Hope Diamond at the Smithsonian today. I rake in about $3 billion annually. Who am I? Deere SeasonThe agriculture industry isnt likely to disappear anytime soon, and thats a plus for Deere (NYSE: DE), the worlds largest manufacturer of agricultural machinery. Deere commands a 50 percent market share in the United States and generates more revenue than most of its competitors combined. While it gets 60 percent of its sales from the U.S. and Canada, its latest annual report details plans to build factories in faster-growing China, Brazil and India.Morningstar gives Deere a healthy A credit rating, but equipment manufacturing is a very capital-intensive business, and Deeres debt-to-equity ratio is a rather high 4.2.The United Nations estimates that farmers will need to double food production by 2050 to keep up with the demands of a swelling population. Tractors can go a long way toward solving that problem, as they greatly increase a farms efficiency. The United States is a huge market, and its farmers need to replace or upgrade their equipment periodically. But the real opportunity is in the developing world, where tractor use is still relatively rare. While Deeres international sales are growing, its still mainly focused on the U.S., leaving the door open for its smaller and more nimble rival AGCO, which does much more of its business internationally. Deeres dividend yield was recently 2.3 percent. Take a closer look under the tractors hood, if youre interested. Based in New York City, Im a top global media and entertainment company. My brands include HBO, Cinemax, TNT, TBS, CNN, New Line Cinema, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, People, Sports Illustrated, Cooking Light, InStyle, Real Simple, Fortune and Money. I reach more than 138 million U.S. consumers monthly in print, online and via mobile devices. Ive produced more than 50 TV shows for the upcoming season. You may know me for my busy merger history. My name reflects a big 1990 merger, and in 2000 AOL bought me. (I spun off AOL in 2009.) Who am I? (Answer: Time Warner) EPS Size Doesnt Matter, MuchQWhen it comes to earnings per share (EPS), is it best to seek companies with a high EPS? G.M., Joplin, Mo.AThe earnings per share amount is rather meaningless by itself. Heres why. Lets say that Cute as a Bug Exterminators (ticker: ICANT) has total net income of $40 million this year. If it has 40 million shares of stock outstanding, then its EPS is $1 ($40 million divided by 40 million is 1).If it issues more stock, and suddenly has 50 million shares outstanding, its EPS will be lower, at $0.80 ($40 million divided by 50 million is 0.80). Imagine two equally promising companies, with identical net income. If one has half as many shares as the other, its EPS will be twice as big. That doesnt mean that its a better or worse company. Theres no perfect number of shares for a company to have. Some have millions and some have billions.Instead, check that EPS has been rising over time, and examine many other numbers, too. Keep in mind that even net income may not be as meaningful as you think, since a companys earnings can be manipulated legally via various accounting maneuvers.***QHow can I look up inflations effect over a certain period? C.H., Maryville, Tenn.AClick over to the Bureau of Labor Statistics website, and youll find a handy inflation calculator. (Heres the direct address: data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/cpicalc.pl.) To see, for example, how much buying power $100 in 1990 would have today, just plug in the numbers. The answer: $177.Another good calculator is at westegg.com/inflation. To learn the average inflation rate over a period, visit measuringworth.com/inflation. (Between 1990 and 2012, it averaged 2.6 percent.)Got a question for the Fool?

The Naples area has just moved from a buyers market to a buyers and sellers market, says Brenda Fioretti of Prudential Florida Realty. More inventory would be helpful to the market, adds Cindy Carroll of Carroll & Carroll Real Estate Appraisers & Consultants. Resale inventory continues to decline despite the fact that new home building has returned. Pending sales of single-family homes in the $500,000 to $1 million category increased 15 percent from third quarter 2011 to third quarter 2012. Closed sales were up 4 percent for the same time period. The third quarter report provides quarterly comparisons of single-family home and condo sales (via the SunshineMLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the findings: The overall average days on the market increased 1 percent, from 171 days in the third quarter 2011 to 173 days in the third quarter 2012. The median closed price increased 10 percent, from $175,000 in the third quarter 2011 to $192,000 in the third quarter 2012. Naples coastal area overall pending sales increased 17 percent, reflecting 388 pending sales in the third quarter 2012 compared to 331 pending sales in the third quarter 2011. Among the specifics of the September sales statistics: Overall pending sales increased 96 percent in the $300,000 to $500,000 category, from 67 pending sales in September 2011 to 131 pending sales in September 2012. Overall inventory decreased by 12 percent, from 7,069 in September 2011 compared to 6,195 in September 2012. Pending sales with contingent contracts are included in the overall inventory number.

Its not like it has roses growing on it, one friend said years ago. More recently another friend echoed the thought. Its not like a womans body, he said. A mans body is hairy and has parts sticking out and hanging down. Were not beautiful creatures. I never know what to say in these moments. My friend was right about the hair and the awkward parts and the hanging bits, but why should the male body be any less attractive than the female form? Sure women are all soft curves and delicate moldings, but the male frame is at its best the literal embodiment of masculinity hard lines and flat surfaces, strong muscles and tight tendons. Who wouldnt l ove that? In fact, Ive long doubted the claim that the male body is nothing to look at. Not only because I like looking, but because it goes against everything I believe about men. Just take a glance (or dont) at the recent onslaught of political and celebrity crotch shots circulating on the Internet. The kind of person who would snap a close-up of his genitalia and then broadcast it in a public forum is not the type who thinks the male body is unattractive. Id actually argue the opposite. I think were entering a golden age of the male form, a period of time when men are not only proud of their bodies, theyre happy to let everyone know it. On a recent weeknight, I was in the kitchen making dinner, cooking salmon in the oven when really it was too hot for anything more than a salad. While the fish baked, I stepped into my bedroom, the only cool place in the house. I left the lights off and sat in a chair in the corner. I closed my eyes for a minute and when I opened them I noticed a man in the window across the way. He stood facing the glass in front of a chest-high table, a laptop open in front of him. He was in his underwear. In that moment I faced a moral dilemma. Clearly he couldnt see me in my darkened room, but from my vantage point I could observe him closely, down to the hairs that curled above the waistband of his boxerbriefs. Im not comfortable in the role of voyeur, but there was his male frame in its full masculine display. Not bad, I said aloud. Apparently the young man thought it was not bad, too. Because as I was debating whether I should turn away he sneaked a hand down his shorts. I blushed and gasped. In the same moment the oven timer sounded and I was glad to have an excuse to leave. As I opened the door and glanced back for a final look, the young man raised his head and seemed to stare directly at where I was silhouetted against the light in the hallway. Was he smiling? It was hard to tell. But I had the sense that he was proud. t c t w l f m artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 Afraid of Virginia Woolf, is directing for the first time. A member of the companys play reading committee, she suggested Extremities by William Mastrosimone, a play about a woman who turns the tables on her rapist. Earlier in her career, Ms. Davis says, she wanted to play the lead but, as she explains, she has matured out of the role. When Artistic Director Annette Trossbach decided the company would stage the play, she offered the directors spot to Ms. Davis. I always thought my first chance at directing would be Southern comedy, (such as) Steel Magnolias, she says. I didnt think it would be a play about rape. This is a very dramatic, gritty play. Its an edge-of-your-seat thriller. And it really volleys back and forth as to where the audiences sympathies are going to lie. In addition to acting, Ms. Davis has done almost every other job in theater, from painting sets and stage managing to working the box office, assisting at auditions, helping with costumes and shopping for props. All that helps make one a well-rounded actor, she says. She once directed a play reading for Florida Repertory Theatre, but has never directed a full-fledged play before Extremities. Not many theaters would give a first-time director an opportunity like this, even someone like me who has a theater background, she says. Thats what I really, really like about LAB Theater: They take their chances. Its all about getting people involved and engaging the community, giving opportunities to people who want to try something new. She allows that she knows nothing about lighting, set design and other technical aspects of staging a play, and says she relying on and learning from Ms. Trossbach and Lab Theater Technical Director Roger Tanksley. Ive also got a stage manager whos been a big help, Stella Ruiz, she says. What Ive found is that I understand writing, I understand interpretation of the play. I understand acting, blocking, she says, adding she has learned from some of the best, naming Robert Cacioppo, producing artistic director of Florida Rep and Chris Clavelli, Florida Reps associate artistic director, as well as the late Niels Miller and Bari Newport, who also directed shows there. When shes in rehearsals now with her own cast, Ms. Davis finds herself passing on lessons learned from those whove directed her. I feel that Im taking little bits and pieces from all of these professionals that I have worked with, she says. And because of her experience on the stage, she understands what her Extremities actors are grappling with. I was directing a scene today, and I could tell that my lead actress didnt know what to do with her hands, she says. I knew, because Ive been in that situation. I had to come up with ideas of what she could do with her hands during that scene. She is taking direction beautifully. Everybody is. Theyre just so good and so natural. Im thrilled with the cast. Its fun, its good. Im learning a lot. The facets of directingMr. Clavelli, whos directing the farce Lend Me a Tenor, which opens Florida Reps 2012-2013 season, didnt start directing plays until hed been acting for 10 or 15 years. Hed been coaching actors, and saw directing as the next logical step. I wanted to have more say in projects, he says. And I had worked with a couple of directors who, even though they were considered successful, I couldnt understand why. So it was as a reaction to bad directors as much as a reaction to good directors both inspirational and instructional in what not to do. There are so many facets to directing, he says, its unlikely a director will be skilled in all of them. There are very few people who are great choreographers, great text people, great actor coaches, he says. You need to be (someone) who understands dramatic structure as well. His biggest strength as as director, Mr. Clavelli believes, is helping actors and getting good performances out of them. I was good at holding an actors hand when they needed support and talking to an actor about what they were trying to do. That makes sense, coming from an acting background, he says. He estimates hes been directing for approximately 20 years now, while still continuing to act. (Florida Rep audiences have seen him in Dancing at Lughnasa, Indian Blood and God of Carnage. He directed the venues closing show last season, The Mystery of Irma Vep.) The easiest way to help any actor is to help them get to a place in a rehearsal where they feel they have a strong handle on what their character is doing, he says. Once an actor knows that, then you can pretty much step back and edit. You help them get to choices that they can trust and feel its something they can play well, and they can build a play around those choices. You do that for them, and then theyre free to take the next step. You help people go in the right direction. If you do it right, you dont have to do much, you step back and let them run. One of the biggest keys of directing, he says, is knowing when not to say something. Suggesting something at the wrong time can squelch an actors instincts, he says. As a director, Mr. Clavelli has to be aware of the overall look and arc of a play. You need to be a choreographer, physically move people around. You have to be able to create stage pictures, he says. What a lot of people dont know is that you have to understand the set and the lights and the costumes and the sounds that create a play. Thats the director that did that. Mr. Clavelli says hes much easier on directors now than he was before he did any directing himself. I respect how hard it is to be a good director. Before I was directing a lot, I was hard on directors. Why dont they do this? Why dont they do that? I couldnt see what they were trying to do. Now I give directors the benefit of the doubt, (because) Id want someone to give me the benefit of the doubt. The whole pictureDirecting is totally different discipline from acting, says Paul Graffy. Hes been acting with The Naples Players at the Sugden Community Theatre for a dozen years, and directing plays there for six. Hes directed at other places as well, including at Juilliard while he was a student there. In the performing arts, you can study until youre blue in the face. You have to do it (to actually learn.) Like any other art, you learn more from your failures than your successes. Every time its a whole new playbook. Mr. Graffy directed Steel Magnolias for The Naples Players last season, and now hes directing Christopher Hamptons Les Liaisons Dangereuses. The play, written in the 1980s, is based on a 1780s book. It was the Fifty Shades of Gray of its time, he says. It was a favorite of Marie Antionette. People thought it was a very scandalous book. Its a wicked story about how two entitled people with nothing better to do, use sex as a game to destroy peoples lives. He rates the play a hard R and adds, Its not a family show. Directing this particular play presents numerous challenges, he says. First of all, its being presented in the Tobye Studio, a black box theater with no wings. There are 18 scenes in 10 locations, he says. How do you possibly do that in the black box? You try to turn what doesnt work for you into something that does work for you. Make the detriment part of your inspiration. You can do anything, as long as the storytelling is clear and the acting is honest. Then theres the matter of on-stage nudity. Were doing it very discretely and with lighting, he says. Its always a little bit more titillating (for audiences), thinking that you see more than you do. Actors are used to using their bodies as an instrument of their art, he says, adding, Its more a question of the actors being comfortable with each other, than the audience. Actors who direct, he says, have an advantage over non-acting directors, because, We tend to know each others language and how to get people to do things. Not just make pretty pictures (on a stage.) You have to understand motivation. Directors have to see the whole picture, while as an actor, Youre just pretty myopic in your own world, in your own character. You have to surrender to the director and hope theyre not making you look bad. Nothing happens on stage that the director has not approved, he adds. You actually sit and take the 110-page play, read it and realize that you have to bring that whole thing to life in every aspect. You have to conceptualize it, tell the designers what you want, coordinate all these efforts, (including) working with the business of the theater, so you can produce it properly and stay on budget. You have to get actors to come out to audition and people to come and see it. The director is the CEO of that little world. Every designer, every technician, every actor everything you see on that stage, the director had a say in. When youre a director, your opening night is the first night of rehearsals. And your closing night is opening night in the theater.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 Catering for ALL Events Including: Corporate Meetings, Schools, Birthdays, Graduations, Bridal & Baby Showers and Holiday Events. Professional Chefs Exhibition Cooking Business and Residential CATERING ARTS COMMENTARYLiving-room battlegrounds: Reza in Rep at Gulfshore PlayhouseModern American painter Frank Stella famously said, What you see is what you see. In Art, playing at the Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples, Serge (Britt Whittle) has bought a monochromatic painting. Its a relatively small rectangle of a canvas, consisting of fine white diagonals on a white background. After lusting for it over time, Serge has finally bought it for 200,000 francs. His friend Marc (Cody Nickell), an aeronautical engineer, thinks the painting is a joke. Worse than that, he thinks its trash, and mocks his friend for buying it. He detests modern art, preferring traditional, representational work. Their mutual friend Yvan (Scott Greer), an affable guy whos getting married in a couple weeks, is caught in the middle. Both friends want him to side with them. As often happens in Yasmina Rezas plays, the relationship between the characters quickly spirals out of control. Tempers flare and the men insult each other not only for their taste in art but also for their choice of girlfriends. Alliances shift and then shift again. Civility goes out the window. Mr. Nickell is perfect as the smug, insufferable Marc, as is Mr. Whittle as the injured party. And Mr. Greer pingpongs between the two, trying to keep the peace. He has a superb monologue (that runs for more than two pages in the script) recounting his difficulties with his fianc, mother and stepmothers re: the wedding invitations. He received well-deserved applause for it on opening night. Ms. Rezas Tony Award-winning play is whip-smart and compelling. Through her examination of the world of modern art and her dissection the dissolution of friendships, she demonstrates how relationships can go off-kilter over seemingly trivial matters. Yes, Marc is overbearing and judgmental, but Ms. Reza almost seems to rooting for his camp; the title of the play, Art, has single quote marks around it, as if to say that a white-onwhite painting cant truly be art that should be taken seriously, though artists such as Kazimir Malevich, Mino Argento and Robert Ryman have all painted white-on-white works. (Consider too, Robert Rauschenbergs observation that A canvas is never empty.) Alok Wadhwanis set for the Gulfshore Playhouse production is monkishly minimalist. A rear sliding wall helps create slightly different settings for the three mens homes. Sound designer Sarah Roberts provides intriguing incidental music and sound effects. Director Kristen Coury has done a good job directing the men, as they verbally joust with each other and then, solo, address the audience with their thoughts. A couple of minor missteps. At one point, she goes for a cheap laugh by having two of the characters on the floor, showing their posteriors to us. It seems out of tone with the rest of the play. And the three yellow, red and green paintings on the back wall unfortunately look like a high-schoolers idea of abstract art. If theyre meant to portray Serges taste in art, they do the character a great disservice. Art is playing in repertory at the Playhouse with God of Carnage, Ms. Rezas other Tony Award-winning play. (Audiences can see both in one day on Saturdays.) Neither play is a stranger to Southwest Florida. Florida Repertory Theater and The Naples Players have all produced Art. And God of Carnage played at the Asolo in Sarasota earlier this year as well as at Florida Rep last season. But Ms. Coury, who is also Gulfshore Playhouses producing artistic director and founder, is cleverly offering audiences the opportunity to see the two back-to-back. They are presented in repertory during the week, but on Saturdays throughout the run, audiences can see one show at 4 p.m. and the other at 8 p.m. Seeing them both within hours of each other is revelatory. We see things we might not have noticed otherwise. Its like listening to two variations on a theme. Ms. Reza specializes in putting people in a living room and then demonstrating how relationships can shift in balance, how they can so quickly unravel or suddenly explode. Characters wield words like weapons. At times, its almost like watching an intellectuals version of The Jerry Springer Show. Both Art and God of Carnage contain emotional breakdowns, physical altercations, unexpected changes in alliances, abuse of property and a character who whips off his or her coat or jacket to show they mean business. (Gulfshore Playhouse cleverly ties the two together by using one painting in both sets.)God of CarnageIn God of Carnage, two couples meet to discuss a playground fight between their 11-year-old sons. Underneath the politeness, the small talk and social niceties bubbles sexism, homophobia and racism, which soon erupt. Mr. Greer and Mr. Whittle from Art appear in God of Carnage as the fathers. (Mr. Nickell, the third character from Art, directed.) In Carnage, Mr. Whittle is a lawyer whose life is lived on his cell phone, protecting corporate criminals. Mr. Greer plays a salt-of-the-earth guy who owns a household goods business. Their wives are played by Laura Faye Smith and Brigitte Viellieu-Davis, respectively. As the couples talk and try to come to an agreement as to what should be done about their sons playground incident, they begin disagreeing then arguing then fighting. Ms. Smiths character is neglected by her abrasive husband, and she and the others are subjected to his continuous, loud phone conversations. Wide cracks begin to appear in both marriages. Each couple fails to present a united front; each spouse undermines the other. As the play continues on, all four adults behave more and childishly, showing themselves to be no better than their sons on the playground. Ms. Davis is perfect as the feisty, protective mom; I especially enjoyed her emphatic gestures and physicality. Ms. Smith plays her high-strung character to the hilt, her fragile persona finally shattering. This production drew regular laughter from the opening-night audience; I hadnt remembered Carnage being quite so funny, but the director and cast wring humor from the interactions. These are four adults reduced to tantrums and outbursts, regressing in maturity before our eyes. Mr. Wadhwanis set for Carnage is hampered by The Norris Centers painfully small stage and winds up being more a generic suggestion of an upperclass familys living room than the fulfillment of one. But both plays have much to offer and are richer for being seen together. Audiences should take advantage of Ms. Courys brainstorm to show Ms. Reza in repertory. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com >> Reza in Rep: Art and God of Carnage >> When: Through Nov. 18, running on alternate nights, except for Saturdays, where you can see both plays in one day, with time for dinner in between. >> Where: The Norris Center, Naples >> Cost: $40 ($15 for students) per play; $72 to see both plays on different nights and $65 to see them both on Saturday. >> Info: 261-7529 or www.gulfshoreplayhouse.org COURTESY PHOTOScott Greer, Brigitte Viellieu-Davis, Laura Faye Smith and Brit Whittle star in God of Carnage.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Rely on your keen instincts as well as the facts at hand when dealing with a troubling situation. Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you work through it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your curiosity leads you to ask questions. However, the answers might not be what you hoped to hear. Dont reject them without checking them out. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Be careful not to tackle a problem without sufficient facts. Even sure-footed Goats need to know where theyll land before leaping off a mountain path. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Appearances can be deceiving. You need to do more investigating before investing your time, let alone your money, in something that might have some hidden flaws. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your recent stand on an issue could make you the focus of more attention than you would like. But youll regain your privacy, as well as more time with loved ones by weeks end. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty continues to impress everyone who needs reassurance about a project. But be careful you dont lose patience with those who are still not ready to act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing others too hard to do things your way could cause resentment and raise more doubts. Instead, take more time to explain why your methods will work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more considerate of those close to you before making a decision that could have a serious effect on their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for their advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have to defend a workplace decision you plan to make. Colleagues might back you up on this, but its the facts that will ultimately win the day for you. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cats co-workers might not be doing enough to help get that project finished. Your roars might stir things up, but gentle purrr-suasion will prove to be more effective. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Someone you care for needs help with a problem. Give it lovingly and without judging the situation. Whatever you feel you should know will be revealed later. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) While youre to be admired for how you handled recent workplace problems, be careful not to react the same way to a new situation until all the facts are in.

NoMatthew Fox plays a cold-hearted, steely-eyed psychopath in director Rob Cohens Alex Cross, and darn if its not one of the best villain performances of the year. His character, Picasso, loves to inflict pain, and no worries if youre the squeamish type: The PG-13 rating ensures things dont get too graphic. Too bad Picassos motivation is never revealed, and the rest of the movie is so poorly told that youll be shocked at its inexplicable ineptitude. The first hour is a standard detective thriller. Detroit Det. Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) is good at his job, and with his wife (Carmen Ejogo) pregnant, hes ready to take an FBI desk job in Washington, D.C. But first he and his partners Tommy (Edward Burns) and Monica (Rachel Nichols) investigate a quadruple homicide at a wealthy young womans (Stephanie Jacobsen) home. Because Cross is intuitive in a Sherlock Holmes sort of way, he deciphers a charcoal drawing left by the killer and tracks down Picasso, a thin but thoroughly vicious madman. Cross also learns that Picassos main target is a French business developer named Leon Mercier (Jean Reno), though why Mercier is a target is a mystery for far too long. After all this is set up, Picasso kills one of Alexs family members. The remaining 40 minutes follow Alex, heretofore a dutiful, responsible man, as he goes crazy vigilante, breaking laws and risking his life to find Picasso. When youve already lost so much, risking what you have left is foolhardy and unrealistic. Worse, Mercier becomes all but an afterthought, and pretty much everything from the first hour is pushed aside until the cozy ending loosely ties things together. Story detours aside this is loosely based on James Pattersons novel Cross the biggest problem is that we never get a reason for why Picasso does any of the things he does. Aside from seeing him collect money in the beginning, theres nothing to explain his actions. Whats more, when given the opportunity for more money and valuables, he has no interest; if were supposed to believe money drives his actions, he needs to desire it more. This is not to say Picasso should be a sympathetic martyr like the bad guys in Taken 2, but even the smallest motive would have gone a long way toward narrative credibility. Many of the action scenes are adequately done, except for the finale, which is a headache-inducing, handheld camera over-edited mess. Doesnt matter, though: By then the story is so laughably bad that youll have checked out of anything that matters. Better yet, dont bother checking in at all. Perry has built an empire out of the Madea character and has a core following that often leads his films to open as No. 1 at the box office, so it wont be a surprise if Alex Cross, featuring him in a competent performance as an action hero, opens strong. If it continues to do well, however, hell has frozen over.

Tamiami Trail ( US 41 )Vanderbilt Beach RdGoodlette-Frank Rd www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-31, 2012 FLORIDA WRITERSMemorial candles illuminate a tortured past in sophisticated thriller The Devils Madonna by Sharon Potts. Oceanview Publishing. 328 pages. $25.95. Reading this sophisticated thriller is definitely addictive. Sharon Potts has taken us into a nightmare world where the past and present collide, and where evil eventually has a name and a face. The author imagines a woman whose irrational sense of guilt has frozen her emotional life. Now in her 90s, Lillian Campbell (whose earlier identities we will come to know) had been a distant mother to her daughter Dorothy, who in turn had difficulty being a loving mother to her daughter Kali. There is evidence that Dorothys death, many years ago, could have been a suicide. Artist and book illustrator Kali, the novels protagonist, was raised by Lillian after Dorothys death, but it was a cold relationship. Now married and pregnant, Kali is determined to learn more about her secretive grandmother in order to know more about herself. She also feels responsible for looking after the frail, fading and haunted woman, who is her only blood relative. The artistic challenge of The Devils Madonna, brilliantly met, is to take readers into Lillians tormented memories and nightmares. Often enough, she confuses these visions with her present, conscious perceptions. Sometimes, she speaks or sings eerily in Yiddish. Always guarded, she is more and more fearful of intruders who would discover long-hidden truths and enact some kind of vengeance. The authors achievement in taking us into Lillians thoughts, emotions and recollections of her mysterious past in Nazi Germany is spectacular. Flashbacks and nightmares reveal Lillians distant past as an Austrian child (Ilse Strauss) and later as a gorgeous young woman in Berlin going by her stage name Leli Lenz (she had yet other identities before becoming Mrs. Harry Campbell). Because she was blonde and blueeyed, Lelis Jewish genes had been well disguised, but now the aged, tormented Lillian has been driven to exorcise her demons in an unusual way: She fills her home with dozens of Yarhzeit (memorial) candles, fulfilling the Jewish tradition of honoring the souls of the departed. In the process, she almost burns the house down. Kali is overwhelmed with the tasks of attending to her grandmothers dangerous behavior, keeping herself healthy through her pregnancy and appeasing her childishly dependent husband, Seth, who cant deal with Kalis absence when she goes to take care of Lillian. Yet Kali is determined to uncover the past, and her grandmother has the keys. Fortunately, Kalis childhood friend Neil lives nearby and is extremely supportive, even taking care of Lillian on several occasions. His deep, respectful love for Kali is at once a blessing and an additional complication. A separate narrative thread presents a character who is, in fact, tracking down Lillian and her secrets. Javier Guzman is the son of a former Nazi functionary who first recoiled against his fathers activities but later came to be fully committed to the super-race ideology. He is searching for the woman who has knowledge that threatens his cause, and he finally discovers her its Lillian. It is also Lillian, he suspects, who has possession of an important miniature portrait that he needs. Pushing his plan along, Guzman becomes obsessed with Kali. His twisted, devious psyche and equally twisted scheme charges the novel with demonic venom. The final confrontation between him and Kali is nerve wrenching and more. Minor characters who help flesh out the plot are finely drawn. These include most notably Kalis in-laws, especially her harshly judgmental mother-in-law, Mitzi. The mysterious Dr. Altwulf, who comforts and then pursues Leli the ingnue and who is assisted in the 1930s by Guzmans father, turns out to have another identity as well. The two men in Kalis life, Neil and Seth, also reveal unexpected dimensions. All in all, the author has spun a darkly intriguing tale, a tale of lingering and recurring horrors and of people pushed to and beyond the limits of sanity. Well-crafted, tonally rich, psychologically resonant and stunningly visualized, The Devils Madonna should captivate a wide audience. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. r n a o a t w philJASONpkjason@comcast.net POTTS

The winners will be announced in next weeks issue.While the judges pore through submissions, were presenting one story thats on our short list for inclusion. Aftermath was inspired by the photo of storm damage. AFTERMATHMARGARET LYNCH, NAPLESWith the coming of morning, the wind ceased its howling and the rain stopped its drenching. Sarah stretched out her bodys stiffness and then lay still, briefly welcoming the silence. With a deep sigh she willed herself out of bed, pushed her feet into slippers beside the nightstand, reached for the robe that lay conveniently on a nearby chair. She then headed into the adjacent bathroom. A flick of the light switch assured her that the power had not been knocked out by the storm. Thank God for small favors, she thought. Ill not be denied the pleasure of my morning coffee. Cup in hand, she went into the living room and set her coffee down as usual on the end table next to her favorite chair. She sat down and looked out the picture window. Doesnt seem the storm did much damage, she thought. I wonder if thats so. Hushing the inner voice of her absent husband telling her to use common sense, she decided to take a short walk not far, just to the park and playground at the corner. I know its a bit foolish, she agreed, but I just have to get out of the house. I wont go far, just to the little park and playground at the end of the street. Ill come right back if theres too much debris on the street. The air is muggy, but even a short walk will do me good. She finished her coffee and returned to the bedroom where she put on her sneakers and replaced her robe with jeans and a white, long-sleeved short one of Bills old ones. She caressed its comforting closeness as she recalled the walks that used to be an ordinary part of their morning ritual. Sarah then activated her brain and headed directly for the door. No, I will not sit around and ruminate. Im alive and in pretty good health still a part of the world around me. I need to check it out. She walked slowly, aware of the amputated tree limbs around her feet. What will I find at the park, she wondered. Her mind took her to the simple pleasures the playground, with its swings, slides and

From a shady spot under a tree shed sat on a hard bench keeping an eye on them while trying to concentrate on the book she always carried. Well, that bench is gone now, replaced by a comfortable new wooden chair. She imaged it: bright blue in contrast to the green of the leaves. Some changes are definitely improvements, she concluded. But Sarahs pleasant reverie was cut short by the sight that greeted her on arrival at the park. She felt a surge of rage and grief. Oh, no! The vicious, selective storm has deavastated my park! Her eyes teared as they moved rapidly over the scene. An uprooted tree rather than laughing children lay on the slide. Her almost-own tree torn from the ground, the body of her favorite chair smashed into its component parts innocent victims of a random act of Natures vandalism. She needed to sit down and get her breath, but there was no bench in sight. She was startled by the voice of a young man who had quietly joined her. Sad, isnt it? he said. It was never much of a park but it was OUR park. Maybe the storm did us a favor. The town might get around to fixing it up. Plant some grass, maybe buy a bench or two. He paused. Are you OK? he asked. I think so. Just needed to catch my breath,she answered. Ill just stay here a minute and then head home. I live close by. What a nice young man, Sarah thought, once again seated in her easy chair at home sipping a second cup of coffee. The damaged park is fixable, not a major disaster. I hope the place gets some attention... but, given the politics, dont expect any fast work on its renewal. Not unlike myself! She smiled at the realization. Accepting things as they are, growth, change cant be rushed. My life will be different, but Im able and ready to move on. Thats what Bill would have wanted. And what I want. The storm may have been a blessing in disguise.

But in past years, many of these creatures were not threatening. In the early days of Rookwood Pottery, an art pottery in Cincinnati (1880-1960), several decorators included bats, spiders and spider webs in the hand-painted scenes on vases and bowls. Maria Longworth Nichols, Albert Robert Valentien, Laura Fry, Matthew Daly and Josephine Zettel were decorators who made similar pieces featuring bats and spiders in the late 1800s. They marked pieces with their initials as well as the word Rookwood. Their designs were influenced by the Japanese pottery shown at the 1876 Worlds Fair in Philadelphia. Spider designs continued to be popular until as late as 1946, when Kay Ley created a vase covered in spiders and spider webs. Bats and spiders were not part of Halloween decorations until the 1920s and did not become popular features of collectibles until the 1970s. Today we might not choose a flower vase for the dinner table that included bugs, but in Victorian times the little creatures were considered lucky, not frightening. Q: I found a 1950s election item of unopened cigarettes with a picture of Eisenhower and the words I Like Ike on the front. On the back it says Eisenhower for President. Is it worth anything? A: Cigarette packs for Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Republican candidate, and Adlai Stevenson, the Democratic candidate, were made by the Tobacco Blending Corp. of Louisville, Ky., during the 1952 pr esidential campaign. The packs were displayed on store counters, and the number of packs sold for each candidate was thought to predict the outc ome of the election. It was an early straw poll. The sales of these two packages matched the actual presidential vote count better than political commentators predictions. The Smithsonian Institution includes the two packs in its collection of political memorabilia. Full packs can bring $30 to $45 today. Q: I would like to know if you have any information on the value of a Soaring Gold Eagle made by Boehm for the 50th presidential inaugural. The porcelain bird is from a special edition of only 50 and it was gilded. A: Boehm was founded by Edward Boehm and his wife, Helen, in Trenton, KOVELS: ANTIQUES Insect decorations dont always have to be creepy c f o o terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com

N.J., in 1950. Your figurine, made for the second inauguration of President Ronald Reagan in 1985, originally sold for $5,000. Boehm made two other types of eagles commemorating the 1985 inauguration. The company is still in business producing both limited and unlimited editions of figurines and plates. Some say only 35 eagles like yours were sold. Limited edition figurines are not as popular as they once were. The values of most are 20 to 50 percent below their issue prices. Q: Can you tell me something about my folding advertising card for Blackwell Durham Smoking Tobacco? When it is unfolded, you can see the face of Ulysses S. Grant. When its folded, the bottom half of Grants face is covered by half of another portrait so it looks like another persons face. The verse under this second portrait is: Come all you true born Democrats, you hardy hearts of oak, who know a thing when it is good and Blackwells Durham Smoke. Gaze on this face and you will see your presidential nominee, the sage and statesman S.J.T. The verse under Grants portrait is: And all you good Republicans will surely be enchanted when you behold the visage here and take the fact for Granted that he will win, if he will be Your Presidential nominee, the soldier hero U.S.G. Another verse includes an ad for the tobacco, saying it suits every taste, no matter what, Republican or Democrat. Who is S.J.T.? When would this card have been made? A: You have a famous metamorphic advertising card. It dates from 1876, the year Samuel J. Tilden (S.J.T.) was the Democratic Partys nominee for U.S. president. Ulysses S. Grant was just finishing his second term in office, and there was some talk of his running for a third term. The card must have been printed before the Republican nomination went to Rutherford B. Hayes. Cards that combined advertising and political messages were popular from about 1875 to 1920. They are now considered crosscollectibleswanted by collectors of political memorabilia and by collectors of antique advertising. Tip: Clean dirty postcards with a piece of white bread.

There seems to be nothing to the play, but when you cash the ace of spades and East discards a heart, the outlook changes completely. Now you are apparently doomed to fail in a contract that a moment before seemed cold for 10 or 11 tricks. But faint heart neer won fair lady, and it certainly wouldnt be right to give up just yet. You still have a chance, since it might be possible to arrange a trump endplay against West if he started with exactly the right distribution (4-3-3-3). So you cash the ace of hearts at trick five, cross to dummy with a club, ruff a heart, lead another club to dummy and ruff a second heart. Then, with fingers crossed, you play the ace of clubs, hoping West will follow suit. When he does, youve got him. Ten tricks have been played thus far, and your last three cards are the K-10-7 of trumps, while West has the Q-J-8. All you have to do now is to lead a low trump toward dummys nine, and West will find he can score only one trump trick rather than the two that seemed so certain at the outset. It is true that West could have held many distributions other than the one he actually had, in which case he would have been able to ruff one of your club leads or overruff one of the heart leads from dummy to avert the endplay. But, even so, you would have been no worse off for having tried to make the contract and failed.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: A Table Apart, 4295 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 221-8540 The small but diverse menu spans the globe, embracing classic French techniques, bold Asian flavors and even a bit of Italian pasta panache while emphasizing a commitment to sustainable seafood and seasonal ingredients. The chorizo mejillones is among the best mussel preparations Ive eaten in a couple of decades of reviewing restaurants. Imagine the flavor explosion of spicy Mexican chorizo sausage, acidic white wine and tomatoes, grassy cilantro pesto and creamy queso fresco. Picture these colorful toppings mingling with a dozen and a half plump mussels sauted until they are just barely cooked through and not a second more. The fish of the day, Arctic char, was simply grilled and simply perfect. Meats are executed equally well, as evidenced by an expertly crusted, juicy flatiron steak topped with rich blue cheese thats smoked in-house. Order it with a side of the best French fries you will ever eat in Southwest Florida theyre sprinkled with Parmesan and fresh herbs and drizzled with earthy truffle oil. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2011Gordons on the River, 475 North Road, Naples; 213-1441 Social dining clubs establishments that offer amenities such as themed dinners, wine tastings and special access to facilities are rare these days. The novelty alone makes Naples Harbour Yacht Club worth checking out. Serving aged steaks, fresh seafood and fine wines. Gordons is the upstairs and upscale neighbor to the clubs more casual Jacks River Bar. We found both the food and the hospitality noteworthy. Gordons boasts an impressive wine list and has an accommodating sommelier to help with selections. Seafood and steak dishes were impressively prepared and accompanied by two vegetables (a rarity these days, especially at steakhouses). The house-made desserts show some creativity that will tempt even those whove had their fill. With or without dining club membership, Gordons puts a fresh and flavorful spin on an old concept. Full bar Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2012 Grouper & Chips, 338 Ninth St. N., Naples; 643-4577 In an older strip plaza across U.S. 41 from NCH Hospital, Grouper & Chips is a self-described small unpretentious hole-in-the-wall restaurant. It is, indeed, so small that you might find yourself rubbing elbows with other parties or waiting an hour for a table (reservations are not accepted). Takeout and delivery are options, but then youd miss out on the warm hospitality of the staff. Besides, once you order, food is quickly delivered. The menu is heavy on fried foods, but the conch fritters and grouper did not suffer from greasy excess; the fried shrimp, however, were overwhelmed by batter. You wouldnt expect to find it in a place like this, but the bouillabaisse is loaded with lobster, sea scallops, mussels, shrimp and chunks of grouper and is worth trying. Dessert shooters petite servings of Key lime pie and chocolate mousse are the perfect way to end a meal here. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2011Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, 8971 U.S. 41, Naples; 431-6206 Margaritas is an offshoot of a Mexican restaurant by the same name thats been on Marco Island since 2005. Succulent hand-pulled meats and fresh seafood are tucked into tender tortillas, served with brightly flavored house-made salsas and sauces. Bracing margaritas in fruit flavors such as watermelon and pomegranate are served on the rocks or frozen, headlining a tequila-heavy cocktail list that goes on for days. The rustic charro beans, whole pintos laced with oregano and chunks of pork, are a revelation and theyre just a side dish. The taco trio miniature corn tortillas overflowing with shredded beef, chicken and pork is a good way to start, as is the ridiculously sumptuous queso fundido, a fondue of warm, silky white cheese garnished with diced scallions, jalapenos and chorizo. Available with three stuffings, the tamales are exemplary. A seafood-packed Cancun burrito was big enough for two, and its ingredients were all perfectly cooked. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2011 Tierneys Tavern, 799 Walkerbilt Road, Naples; 591-3837 The owners of The Bay House have rolled out a new, more casual concept in what used to be an expansive bar next to the restaurant. At Tierneys Tavern, you can savor similarly Southern-inspired and equally well-executed food for much less money. Entrees top out at $24, and its possible to dine well for much less. The menus coastal cuisine spans a broad range, from the North Atlantic to Carolina Low Country, around the Florida peninsula and up the gulf to New Orleans. The Southern Collection is a good way to sample a range of appetizers, including Charleston crab dip, pimento cheese, house-made pickles. The shrimp and grits lacked spunk even with horseradish cream and diced andouille sausage; but the Sea BLT layers of arugula, fried green tomatoes and fresh seafood salad sprinkled with roasted corn and crumbled bacon would delight any discerning palate. Perched on the banks of the Cocohatchee River, the restaurant and bar are nestled among old oaks and mangroves and have plenty of windows for enjoying the unique vista.
