INSIDE Seen on the sceneThe inaugural Naples Womans Club Kitchen Tour, a Black and White gala and more. C26-29 It was a year of firsts for 36-yearold Fort Myers resident Trey Radel: his first full year of fatherhood, for one, and his first bid for public office. He considers each an enormous success. In a swift ascent into political life on a national scale, the former TV news anchor and conservative talk show host-cum-entrepreneur found himself in Washington, D.C., being sworn in as U.S. House Representative for District 19, which includes coastal Collier and Lee counties. Only a few weeks later, the newly minted Republican representative is back home in Fort Myers for his selfstyled Southwest Florida Listening Tour and encouraging Democrats and people from all walks to come ask him questions at town hall-style meetings. Hell be back to do this again in February, he said, and at other times during his term will meet with the public on video conference calls. (Go to www.radel. house.gov for more information). Just this morning I went to an event with the Harry Chapin Food Bank and really just ladled soup for a good part of this morning, Mr. Radel said last Saturday afternoon during an interview at Whole Foods in Naples. Ive worked with that charity for years, in both Lee and Collier County. So it was good, for the first time as a representative, to go help out the cause. The caf at Whole Foods was clamoring, buzzing with families and shoppers in weekend mode, when Mr. Radel sat down to answer some questions. He was waiting there by himself and surprisingly, no one seemed to recognize his familiar face or voice, or else they were too polite to be intrusive. At one point, someone came over to borrow a chair from the table and Mr. Radel jumped up and carried it over before returning to field a question on immigration. In a 50-minute conversation, he shared his views on Washington, President Obamas executive orders on gun control, his Catholic faith, THE STARS, INDEED, ALIGNED FOR fine wine and big money to come out in equal abundance at the 2013 Naples Winter Wine Festival.

Great. Maybe Ill move out of the country in protest. I could head to Canada, for example, where putting women in combat positions makes a lot more sense. There, half the women are related to polar bears anyway, and they like to stay cold and fight. The other half speak French, and they like to stay warm and make love. Making love, making war the whimsical Canadians just do what they want. Apparently they harbor no silly illusions about equality in any of it. But many Americans blithely assume that everybodys equal, and everybody, therefore, should have both equal rights and equal responsibilities Southerners, Northerners, men, women, polar bears, French speakers, them and us. Let me point out that men and women may enjoy equal rights, but they have to ride herd on very different biologies. That means women hold a card many men would have given their eyeteeth to play during the Vietnam draft, for example the pregnancy card. Its an ace up the sleeve, and thats not fair. What will happen if we take on another unpopular war someday, and women get drafted in the same numbers as men, then placed in combat roles? Heres one possibility: A woman who wants out of such a bum steer will no longer have to exile herself to Canada when the draft board scoffs at her conscientiousobjector application. Instead, shell just get pregnant. So if were going to place women in combat roles, I think Army medical doctors should now be ordered to come up with a way for men to get pregnant, too if they can qualify. (I personally dont know of any men tough enough to qualify, but there must be somebody, somewhere.) Either that, or every man in uniform should be given an official, one-use-only Chromosome Y Preggie Card a CYPC, for those who are acronymically inclined to be put into play for a period of nine months only, at any moment of his choosing. Meanwhile, its progress, not naivete, that characterizes Canadians. They first allowed women to assume combat roles way back in 1989, following a precedent established by Israel, Norway and Denmark. They were trying to become a fully integrated, equal society you know, with equally good health care for all, equal pay and opportunities for all, equally responsible corporate bankers who didnt play loose with ethics or laws for all, and all that other equally progressive mish-mash. Nowadays, most women who serve under arms about 15 percent of Canadian troops do not have combat roles. Two percent, however, come equipped not only with the dominant X chromosome, but with packs and rifles. They serve in combat units right alongside the men, according to an online report that appeared early this week in National Geographic Daily News. One, a forward observer trained to call in artillery or air strikes, even got killed in Afghanistan, in 2006. Thats fine for the Canadians, who have always come to our aid in any fight. In all likelihood, theyre so cold most of the time they probably cant think clearly. But for Americans theres a question we should long since have asked. And it isnt, What have we come to when we let women go into combat? No, the bigger question is this: What have we come to when we let anybody at all go into combat 17-year-olds, for example? Or 18-year-olds, or 19-year-olds, or 20-yearolds? Not one of them, remember, can legally enter a restaurant on American soil and order even a single glass of beer or wine. We were happy to send them to Korea or Vietnam or Iraq, of course three of the most misguided adventures in American history. And many came back in flag-draped boxes. Apparently that hardly fazed us, because we kept doing it. More troubling to us, instead, is the danger they face in such spiritual warzones as Mels Diner, or Hooters, or Sweet Melissas Cafe, or the Yabba Island Grill, or Seasons 52 or Opus. There, theyre legally banished from spirits altogether. Instead, they can order a nice glass of milk with their apple pie. In the end, maybe its not just our willingness to send young people now including women so cavalierly into combat. Maybe its our arbitrary and patchy insistence on equal rights and faux-morality that makes me want to break out in song. This song, in particular: Oh Canada, Terre de nos aieux / Ton front es ceint de fleurons glorieux If you dont instantly recognize those inspiring lyrics, clearly youre an American. If you decide to move to Canada with me, therefore, I advise you to learn them immediately or risk being kicked out of the finest wine bars and pastry shops in Montreal, which is where Ill be hanging out. Theyre the first words of the Canadian national anthem, of course everybody knows that, especially hockey fans. They go like this, in English: O Canada / Our home and native land / True patriot love in all our sons, command. Yeah, I know, in all our sons, command.Their daughters, apparently, are not commanded by Canada, its anthem, or anything else, especially not by the men, unless they want to be. They get to volunteer. And if they do volunteer, they also have to qualify. American women will now have the same opportunity to qualify for combat roles. For all 314 million of us in the land of the free and the home of the brave, thats sad sad that so narrow a view of equality has been championed with such fanfare south of the Canadian border. This new opportunity for women, dubious at best for any who might someday find themselves in combat, is only a single thread in the whole fabric of an equal society. In our stalwart democracy, it should be part of an Equal Rights Amendment that insists on equal opportunity in every corner of American life and also insists on equal responsibility. Then, all those progressive foreigners will no longer have the leg up on us, when it comes to progress. COMMENTARYThe Chromosome Y Preggie Card w g t o p c rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONPresident Obamas re-founding amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly For the left, this is what winning looks like. President Barack Obama gave a second inaugural address that just as easily could have been delivered by progressive darling Elizabeth Warren. If the president didnt repeat the phrase that Republicans threw back at him so often during the 2012 campaign you didnt build that the speech was a meditation on the same theme of the limits of individual action. The address was a paean to collectivism, swaddled in the rhetoric of individual liberty and of fidelity to the founding. He began and ended with the Founding Fathers and threaded the Declaration of Independence throughout. This gave the speech a conservative sheen. He used the words timeless, ancient, lasting and enduring. He sounded like Republican Sen. Marco Rubio in invoking what makes us exceptional, namely our allegiance to an idea, articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago. But this framing of the speech only served to amplify the ambition of President Obamas larger political project. He hopes to reorient the American mainstream and locate conservatives outside it. He wants to take the founders from the right and baptize the unreconstructed entitlement state and the progressive agenda in the American creed. In President Obamas telling, the high points of our national life are found in collective action, in the growth of government, in teachers trained and roads built. Now, more than ever, he declared, we must do these things together, as one nation and one people. He presented his agenda as the logical consequence of the Declaration of Independences enunciation of the equality of all men and our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. For President Obama, that means equal-pay legislation, gay marriage and amnesty for illegal immigrants. He included a long passage on the necessity of fighting climate change with transformative energy policies. Thats what will lend meaning, he said, to the creed our fathers once declared. (One wonders what Thomas Jefferson would have made of the argument that his handiwork is meaningless absent federal subsidies for the likes of Solyndra.) According to President Obama, entitlements such as Medicare and Social Security dont merely represent a necessary safety net for the vulnerable. They free us to take the risks that make this country great, he maintained, in a highly imaginative interpretation of these programs. All of his bows to modesty were formalistic. He mentioned outworn programs, without even promising to eliminate any. He said we have always had a suspicion of central authority, but of course he didnt endorse it. He said we dont have to settle the debate over the size of government once and for all, while insisting that we keep expanding it on his own terms. All in all, it was a brazen performance, as audacious in intent as it was banal in its expression. He used the founders authority to advance an expansive conception of American government that would have been unrecognizable to them. Amid the pomp and the circumstances, Republicans should have heard a direct challenge. The president did them, and everyone else, the favor of enunciating the battle lines and the stakes of the fights to come. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Obamas dirty wars exposed at SundanceAs President Barack Obama prepared to be sworn in for his second term as the 44th president of the United States, two courageous journalists premiered a documentary at the annual Sundance Film Festival. Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield reaffirms the critical role played by independent journalists like the films director, Rick Rowley, and its narrator and central figure, Jeremy Scahill. The increasing pace of U.S. drone strikes, and the Obama administrations reliance on shadowy special forces to conduct military raids beyond the reach of oversight and accountability, were summarily missed over the inaugural weekend by a U.S. press corps obsessed with first lady Michelle Obamas new bangs. Dirty Wars, along with Scahills forthcoming book of the same title, is on target to break that silence ... with a bang that matters. Mr. Scahill and Mr. Rowley, no strangers to war zones, ventured beyond Kabul, Afghanistan, south to Gardez, in Paktia province, a region dense with armed Taliban and their allies in the Haqqani network, to investigate one of the thousands of night raids that typically go unreported. Mr. Scahill told me: In Gardez, U.S. special operations forces had intelligence that a Taliban cell was having some sort of a meeting to prepare a suicide bomber. And they raid the house in the middle of the night, and they end up killing five people, including three women, two of whom were pregnant, and ... Mohammed Daoud, a senior Afghan police commander who had been trained by the U.S. Mr. Scahill and Mr. Rowley went to the heart of the story, to hear from people who live at the target end of U.S. foreign policy. In Gardez, they interviewed survivors of that violent raid on the night of Feb. 12, 2010. After watching his brother and his wife, his sister and his niece killed by U.S. special forces, Mohammed Sabir was handcuffed on the ground. He watched, helpless, as the U.S. soldiers dug the bullets out of his wifes corpse with a knife. He and the other surviving men were then flown off by helicopter to another province. Mr. Sabir recounted his ordeal for Rowleys camera: My hands and clothes were caked with blood. They didnt give us water to wash the blood away. The American interrogators had beards and didnt wear uniforms. They had big muscles and would fly into sudden rages. By the time I got home, all our dead had already been buried. Only my father and my brother were left at home. I didnt want to live anymore. I wanted to wear a suicide jacket and blow myself up among the Americans. But my brother and my father wouldnt let me. I wanted a jihad against the Americans. Before leaving, Mr. Scahill and Mr. Rowley made copies of videos from the cellphones of survivors. One demonstrated that it was not a Taliban meeting, but a lively celebration of the birth of a child that the raid interrupted. Mr. Rowley described another video: You can hear voices come over it, and theyre American-accented voices speaking about piecing together their version of the nights killings, getting their story straight. You hear them trying to concoct a story about how this was something other than a massacre. The film shows an image captured in Gardez, by photographer Jeremy Kelly, sometime after the massacre. It showed a U.S. admiral named McRaven, surrounded by Afghan soldiers, offering a sheep as a traditional gesture seeking forgiveness for the massacre. The coverup had failed. William McRaven headed the Joint Special Operations Command, or JSOC. Following the thread of JSOC, painstakingly probing scarcely reported night raids, traveling from Afghanistan to Yemen to Somalia, Mr. Scahills reporting, along with Mr. Rowleys incredible camerawork, constructs for the first time a true, comprehensive picture of JSOC and Commander in Chief Obamas not-so-brave new world. The Inauguration Day drone strike in Yemen was the fourth in as many days, along with a similar increase in strikes in Pakistan. The Washington Post reported that President Obama has a playbook that details when drone strikes are authorized, but it reportedly exempts those conducted by the CIA in Afghanistan and Pakistan. On Inauguration Day, President Obama officially nominated John Brennan, a strong advocate for the enhanced interrogation techniques that many call torture, and architect of the drone program, to head the CIA. With the film Dirty Wars, co-written with David Riker and directed by Mr. Rowley, Jeremy Scahill is pulling back the curtain on JSOC, which has lately exploded into the public eye with the torture-endorsing movie Zero Dark Thirty, about the killing of Osama bin Laden. When Dirty Wars comes to a theater near you, see it. Sadly, it proves the theater of war is everywhere, or, as its subtitle puts it: The World Is a Battlefield. As Mr. Scahill told me, Youre going to see a very different reality, and youre going to see the hellscape that has been built by a decade of covert war.

He suggested that before surgery, I should visit his acupuncture physician, Dr. Alfred Cormier. I did, and long story short, I went through five months of therapy with Dr. Cormier and was able to regain strength and full range of motion in my shoulder without surgery. Since then, Dr. Cormier has also helped me with back and leg pain. This is an example of not just alternative medicine, but integrative medicine alternative therapy applied as a complement to traditional medicine. Alfred is a son of the American Revolution. He and his siblings were raised in historic Lebanon, Conn., where George Washington and French troops spent a winter on the town green. Growing up in the woods gave Alfred an appreciation for nature and biology. At 10 years old he decided to become a doctor, and never wavered from that goal. He studied pre-med at Loyola College of Maryland and spent his senior year at Assumption University in Bangkok, Thailand, learning about Chinese herbal medicine. The philosophy behind Chinese medicine was the most profound and foreign concept he had ever encountered. After Loyola, Alfred enrolled in Emperors College of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, graduating summa cum laude in 2000. He moved to the Paradise Coast, close to where his parents retired, shortly after and opened Florida Oriental Medicine, Like any business, starting an acupuncture practice is difficult. To pay the bills in the beginning, Alfred worked at NCH as a heart monitor technician, having done the same work throughout his schooling in Los Angeles at Saint Johns Hospital in Santa Monica. He also taught tai chi at the NCH Wellness Center. In 2002, he expanded his practice to include injection therapy, training first in Florida for 60 hours and then spending three weeks studying in a Chinese hospital in Nanning. In 2004, he trained in Paris and in several U.S. cities to learn mesotherapy and neural therapy injection techniques. In 2007, after hurting his lower back in a motorcycle accident, he decided to learn about and receive prolotherapy injections, which initiated a radical change in his career. He says for him as a patient, the dextrose injections had excellent results, spurring his own stem cell activity to strengthen his ligaments, tendons and cartilage tissue (by causing inflammation, the dextrose attracts stem cells, he explains). Further training last summer in Chicago and Los Angeles increased his confidence dextrose injections should be the first line treatment for acute or chronic a t E i l bobHARDEN e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org PROFILES IN PARADISEPhysician practices the alternative medicine he preaches Talking points with Dr. Alfred CormierSomething your mom was right about: The importance of living a simple and loving life.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 COURTESY PHOTOCongressman Trey Radel approaches Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. giving power back to the states, and his hatred of the words constituent and politician. Numerous times he emphasized his willingness to work across party lines, and often returned to his frustration with mammoth, convoluted pieces of legislation in Washington in general (the Affordable Care Act and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in particular), which he says create uncertainty thats hurting local businesses. Jim Shaw, a Naples-based Realtor who supported Mr. Radel during his campaign after seeing that he presented himself well as a local news anchor, tends to agree with him that more certainty would get the cash flowing through banks and back into businesses here. I was hoping to get back to a balanced budget and Im hoping thats what hell do in his term in Congress, said Mr. Shaw. My feeling is if we can get back to that type of situation, small business and large business would have more feeling of safety, surety of whats going to happen next year, versus all the uncertainty thats been going on for so long with a Congress thats done nothing and we run up to the fiscal cliff. We just cant do any serious planning in the near term and the long term. And thats really how business operates versus government. When small and large businesses can get back to that, that means they can hire. Once people feel like theyre set in their career for some extended period of time I think theyll be willing to buy real estate again.Private lifeIn Cincinnati, Ohio, where he grew up, Mr. Radel worked at the funeral home that his family founded in the late 1800s and still owns. At 18, he left Ohio to attend Loyola University, a Catholic school in Chicago. Highlights of his college years include an internship at CNN and backpacking trips in the Middle East and northern Africa. He returned to Chicago to graduate in 1999 with a bachelors in communications and a minor in Italian. (He is also fluent in Spanish). Pursuing his career as a reporter, he worked at a CBS affiliate in Houston before being hired as a reporter by WINK-TV in Fort Myers. Leaving that job, he purchased a small newspaper, the Naples Journal, before expanding and selling it to E.W. Scripps Co., which owns Naples Daily News and other papers. From 2007 to 2009, he was an anchorman for evening broadcasts at WINK. Mr. Radel ended up marrying one of his competitors from FOX4 News during that time, former anchorwoman Amy Wegmann Radel. (They met when Ms. Wegmann worked at WINK as a production assistant.) They have a 1-yearold son, Jude. Mr. Radel left the anchor position to found a public relations firm. When a conservative radio talk show host opening at WINK-AM opened up, he jumped at the chance to be a political voice; a few years later, he was posing for a photograph with the freshman class of the 113th Congress on the steps of the Capitol. Jim McLaughlin, a television anchor and reporter who has been in the news business in Southwest Florida for 35 years, said he enjoyed working with Mr. Radel at WINK. At the same time, he delineated the roles that reporters and politicians play, even as respected former colleagues. Everybody knows what the rules of the game are, Mr. McLaughlin said. We know we have to ask the difficult questions and the politicians know we have to ask the difficult questions. He knows he has his line and his approach to things and were going to cover it, Im going to cover it, the media in general is, as best we can. He added, I think he took a big gamble. I admire anybody who runs for public office, especially an office that high that carries that much responsibility. Hes in a new world now and its a difficult one, and hell have to prove himself. FW: This first time being elected to Congress, at 36, I know you had mentioned on an interview with WINK-TV soon after you were elected that it felt surreal. You go to Congress around a really high-powered group of people, so whats it been like this first three weeks for you there? Radel: Its been intense. There are huge challenges ahead of us. But I love my job. And thats important: I enjoy doing what needs to be done to represent and serve this area as best I can. And, I mean, Ive always been a believer that if you dont like your job, if youre frustrated with it and it gets you down dont do it. I love it. I love this. I love what Im doing. And I hope to I dont hope to, I will carry on the passion, love of job, and love of country for the next two years. FW: How are you adjusting to the culture in Washington? Is it overwhelming or do you feel star struck? Radel: Not at all, no, no. I think unfortunately sometimes freshmen get to Congress and theyre so in awe that they have their name on a plaque or theyre on television. I dont care about that. I dont want any of that. If I still wanted that, I would still have my own television and radio show. Im in Washington to find solutions and get something done. And thats whats most important. And, you know, its been great to Ive met with everyone from (Florida House Democrat) Debbie Wasserman Shultz to FW: (Speaker of the U.S. House, Republican) John Boehner (who swore him in). Radel: Speaker Boehner. And I just had Secretary (of State Hillary) Clinton testify in front of my committee (on Foreign Affairs). FW: What did you think about her testimony (about who was accountable for the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that left four Americans dead)? And what will be your focus on the Foreign Affairs Committee? Radel: I think that Secretary Clinton has served our country well and done as good of a job as she could have given the circumstances in the world and staff underneath her that failed. And unfortunately failed miserably. Moving forward, what we need to make sure of is that the State Department takes responsibility by implementing ways to make sure that we do not lose American lives again. But there also needs to be accountability in the way that they spend their money and hold staff accountable. There were people identified in that report that didnt do their job. And theyre only on paid leave. In the real world, youre held accountable for your actions and the actions in this case ended up with four Americans dead. FW: My editor told me that when you used to have your radio show, you used to go in sometimes in flip-flops, unshaven .Whats it like now, that contrast between being able to be a really relaxed person, and while popular and well known, not on a national level: Is that a hard change? Radel: OK, so whether I own my own business or worked as a journalist, I always would shave and wear a suit. But, uh, when I have some family time, Im a shorts and flip-flops kind of guy. But you know, I have not been overwhelmed by this at all. FW: By the transition? Radel: Yeah, by the transition or the fact that my life is to some degree on a national stage, if you will. I dont think about that; Im not worried about that; I dont care about that. What I care about is doing what I can to represent and serve our neighbors here and do a great job in Washington. FW: The housing market in Southwest Florida seems to be slowly c oming back. Radel: We hope. FW: And jobs are improving a little bit. Radel: For the past few years we were kind of dragging at the bottom. What I hope is we see an upward trend. FW: Is there anything that you plan to do in Washington that will help that upward trend? Radel: Let me start that answer with as much as Republicans want to repeal Obamacare and Dodd-Frank, it is not going to happen very soon. Thats an unfortunate reality. Now, to answer your question. When it comes to either of those two pieces of legislation, the best thing that we can do as Democrats and Republicans is make sure that there is certainty and stability when it comes to the economy. So when it comes to people wanting to buy homes or sell their home, a Dodd-Frank is a disaster for banks who are trying to lend money most of all because the legislation still today lacks that certainty that banks in particular need to lend money to customers. So thats an important thing that I hope to accomplish that I think Democrats and Republicans can work on in the big picture. We have the cards that weve been dealt, and its a bad hand for everybody. But what we need to do is come together and again give certainty and stability to our business owners. And most of all, work hard for our tax-paying Americans. FW: You have mentioned before that improving or simplifying the tax code is a priority. Whats the first step? Radel: First of all, Ive already signed on to legislation to implement whats called the Fair Tax. I will do what I can to support and potentially one day implement that. But I understand that might not be the easiest thing to do right now. What I would like to see is a closing up of loopholes, the caps on deductions matched with cuts in spending. Its a win-win. It helps simplify the tax code and brings in revenue; and with a stable revenue and responsible cuts in spending, I think it will add to the certainty that we need in our economy.RADELFrom page 1

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 NEWS A9 FW: In the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, there have been a lot of different discussions about mental health and guns, a lot of different areas. Is there one area that you would focus on thats most crucial to stopping something like that from happening again? And added to that, do you think President Obamas executive orders (bypassing Congress on some gun control measures) and some of the gun legislation hes proposing now are in order? Radel: Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Democrat) recently proposed (gun legislation). So heres where were at. Well look at Sen. Feinsteins proposal and well also talk about President Obamas executive orders. All of it is important. Sen. Feinsteins proposal is not based in reality. She wants to ban quote unquote assault rifles. I use the word quote because any kind of a gun or a knife or a fist is an assault weapon. The reality is that objects, knives and handguns far outnumber assault rifles when it comes to homicides in this country. So what does she want to ban when we look at those numbers based in fact? And what really bothers me as a journalist is that you will hear a question from the senator that says, Well, why do you need that type of gun? Well, lets take a look at the First Amendment. Why do we need journalists blogging about how much they dislike George W. Bush or President Barack Obama? Why do we need investigative reports that expose fraud or lack of accountably in government? What Im getting at is that you cannot pick and choose what you get to enforce in the First Amendment or the Second Amendment based on your emotion or what you like or dislike. Does that make sense? FW: Yes. Radel: And that really upsets me. Im going to fire off the hip here for a second because I really am passionate about this. Through the past decades weve seen calls going back to the 1950s to ban Elvis Presley because the people didnt like the way that he shook his hips. Present day: We hear calls to ban Spanish language television or rap music. You might not always like what you hear but I believe in freedom of speech and I believe also in having the ability to protect your family in any way that you want. So again to me its crystal clear: this is the First and Second Amendment that I want to illustrate to both sides of the aisle we need to be staunch supporters of. So that was the Feinstein issue. Now President Obama, while I have been very frustrated with the types of executive orders coming from both President Bush and President Obama... FW: You just dont like executive orders. Radel: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Lets be clear here. Executive orders can and do serve a purpose. In some ways they help make government more accountable and more efficient. And really thats what theyre supposed to do. Theyre just supposed to make sure departments are maximizing your tax dollars and doing their job. But I believe that in the past some of them have overstepped their boundaries. In the most recent orders from President Obama, there are questions about whether or not he is creating a de facto gun registry. There are questions as to how our privacy will be protected when it comes to what is called HIPPA law (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) its a way to better protect your privacy. And so what I want to see and what Ive wanted to see under both President Bush and President Obama is more discussion and debate about what were doing and why whether it comes to examples such as the use of drones abroad to executive orders on guns here in the United States. You had asked about the mental health issue. So actually I think as much as I dislike President Obamas use of executive orders, I think hes got some great ideas that I am willing to work with him on. And that is to do as much as we can to make sure that guns do not get into the hands of the mentally ill. But this is why we need debate and discussion on it because both Democrats and Republicans are concerned about: how will we share information about our own health with the federal government, if at all? These are valid concerns that again, with President Obama I see where hes going, but I just wish he would allow Congress to do our job. FW: In the first few weeks, who have you gotten to know on both sides of the aisle, and who do you want to get to know? Radel: I have reached across the aisle to meet with everyone from Debbie Wasserman Shultz to Patrick Murphy, who is a fellow freshman in my class and a Democrat from the east coast. And I reached across the aisle to speak with Democrats to right off the bat show that Im not there to yell at anyone, call people names. Im there to find solutions and get something done Im really passionate about this. Accomplishing something starts with personal relationships. When I owned my business, the best way to grow your business is to have a good personal and working relationship with someone, whether its an employee or a paying customer. And its that kind of open, friendly, and even businesslike attitude that I want to take to Washington. FW: Did you find when you got to Washington that the atmosphere between Republicans and Democrats is as contentious and toxic as the public seems to perceive it? Radel: No. I think the media exacerbates it and makes it look far worse than it is. And I hope that that initial impression is what will stick with me (he laughs) for the next several months, I hope. But Im positive you know, this freshman class has a huge number of people who are under 40 years old. And to me, I think its great that Congress is getting some new blood and new ideas from people who are not entrenched in the system.I am excited and proud because for the first time Republican leadership has thought through what we want to do and how we want to do it. And so now, were on offense. Trey Radel

AfDPMNEW ON STAFF www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 FW: On immigration, would you say youd align yourself with Floridas Republican Sen. Marco Rubio in terms of supporting... Radel: Yes. FW: A route, a path to citizenship for all (11 million or more) illegal immigrants. Radel: Sen. Rubio is a friend and a mentor I like most parts of what he said so far. I want to see it on paper though. I want to see in depth how he plans to accomplish his end goal. One area that I am concerned about is the word citizenship. Because right now we have so many immigrants from around the world who are here to offer their intellectual capital and even capital in the sense of money, to invest in our country, create jobs and theyve been waiting in line a long time, a long bureaucratic process. And so Im very hesitant about that. FW: This seems like one of the areas where youd be willing to work with President Obama. It seems theres a lot of common ground there. Radel: Yeah, lets start though with the Democrats in the Senate, all right? Because you know, look, President Obama, I dont know if Ill even ever get a chance to shake his hand. I have no idea. But in areas that we can work together I think there are plenty of areas. Right now we have almost 70 percent of our budget that is never even discussed among lawmakers. It is on autopilot. And that includes Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The Democrats in my freshman class have been very receptive and open to saying we need to make changes in the way we spend money. And there are areas that we can work together to make government more responsible to the people. And to tell you the truth, even in Obamacare, when it comes to the repeal of Obamacare again, its not a reality right now but Democrats are doing it for us. Democrats have already appealed various parts of Obamacare ... One thing you should know: one of the largest private employers in all of Southwest Florida is literally blocks from here, theyre called Arthrex. They make medical devices. There are Democrats right now in the Senate working to repeal the part of Obamacare that taxes medical devices. Ive co-signed to that legislation. FW: One of the first headlines after you were sworn in was that you had agreed with another Republican House member that because of President Obamas executive orders (regarding gun control), that his impeachment should be on the table. Radel: Let me be very clear here. The 30-second sound clip that was used came from a 45-minute interview and misrepresented what I was saying in a highly negative way and Im still mad about it. I do not want to and will not call for the impeachment of President Obama. Heres what I was saying: We need to force discussion and debate among the people we elected to do just that. And those are the men and women of the House and the Senate. And whether President Bush overstepped his boundaries with executive orders or Obama did, we need to make sure we have all options on the table to have healthy debate and discussion. Thats why we were elected. FW: Recently, Republicans agreed to move the debt ceiling deadline back a few months instead of insisting on spending cuts. Are Republicans taking a softer strategy on fiscal policy? Radel: No, its quite the opposite. I am excited and proud because for the first time, Republican leadership has thought through what we want to do and how we want to do it. And so now, were on offense. And what Republicans are going to demand from Senate Democrats is to do something that they have not done in four years, which is pass a budget. If they dont pass a budget, they dont get paid. If they dont pass a budget, the Democrats will also see cuts to some of their sacred cows as well. FW: This is sort of changing the topic. Radel: Sure, anything, man. FW: I heard you were an improv actor in Chicago (at Second City, a famous comedy club). I saw that on Wikipedia. (Congressman Radel objects to Wikipedias accuracy and the label improv actor). Radel: When I was in Chicago, I worked several jobs, went to school, and had a lot of fun. My jobs included everything from bartending to serving gyros at a grease pit. And outside of my studies in school I took classes at whats called Second City in Chicago, which I dont know if you ever heard of. Its where Saturday Night Live drafts out of. Chris Farley came from there. So I took classes there and I only performed on the second stage. But that was it. Lorne Michaels never called me (he laughs). FW: Is it odd being on the other side, like having someone from WINK-TV, where you used to work, interview you? Your experience as a reporter, as a journalist, is it an advantage, a disadvantage, or just is what it is? Radel: It is what it is. It doesnt change anything. But yeah, Ive been very blessed in terms of jobs and everything. I was a reporter. I left to roll the dice and built up that newspaper and sold that; went back to TV news, anchored two newscasts for three years; and then most recently I left to start up a public relations company and it just so happened that the radio show opened up. So for the past few years, I ran my company during the day and did the radio show in the morning. FW: Did you want to be a politician when you were a kid or has your idea of what a politician is changed as you got older and actually did become a politician? Radel: I hate the word politician. FW: Yeah, it does have a negative connotation. Radel: A negative connotation, right? (He laughs). Thats for the record: I hate the word politician. I just want to represent and serve people who are just like me. And at the end of the day, I truly believe that both Democrats and Republicans want the same things for our society: opportunity, freedom and an accountable government. And Ill do everything I can to fight for that.

(During the 2012 Republican primaries, Mitt Romney famously asserted a corporations general right under the law to be treated as a person.) The judge decided that the state legislatures carpool law was intended only to reduce traf fic clutt er and that driving with no passenger except corporate papers was unrelated to that goal. Mr. Frieman told reporters that he had been carrying the papers around for years, hoping to be challenged.Cultural diversity The U.S. Congress may suffer dismal popularity ratings (less savory than head lice, according to one survey), but it is saintly compared to Indias legislatures, which contain six accused rapists at the state level and two in the national parliament. Thirty-six local officials, as well, have been charged with sexual assault (according to Indias Association for Democratic Reforms). In fact, the association reported in December that 162 of the lower house of Parliaments 552 members currently face criminal charges. The problem is compounded by Indias notoriously paralyzed justice system, which practically ensures that the charges will be unresolved for years, if not decades. Many Japanese men seem to reject smartphones in favor of a low-tech 2002 Fujitsu cellphone, according to a January Wall Street Journal dispatch because it can help philanderers keep their affairs from lovers prying eyes. The phones lack sophisticated tracking features plus, a buried privacy mode gives off only stealth signals when lovers call and leaves no trace of calls, texts or e-mails. A senior executive for Fujitsu said, If Tiger Woods had (this phone), he wouldnt have gotten in trouble. Chinas national legislature passed a law in December to establish that people have a duty to visit their aged parents periodically. Chinas rapid urbanization has not developed nursing homes and similar facilities to keep pace with the population, and sponsors of the law said it would give the parents a legal right to sue their children for ignoring them.Latest religious messages Redemption! Senior pastor Claude Gilliland III was forced to admit to his flock at the New Heart church in Cleburne, Texas, in January that he is a convicted sex offender and that he and his ex-wife had worked in the pornography industry. The Rev. Gilliland, 54, served four years in prison in the 1990s for sexually assaulting his ex-wife, but in January was nonetheless defended by his congregation. If we believe in the redemptive work of Christ, said one parishioner, then this man is a miracle. (the Rev. Gilliland believes he needs no redemption for the assault, for he was innocent of that but that he had done other bad things during that time that did require redemption.) Prophet Cindy Jacobs said in a January Internet broadcast that God has revealed Himself to her by mysteriously removing critical shortages in her life, such as her cars well-worn tires that just kept rolling. I remember one time that I had a pair of shoes that I wore and wore and wore and wore and wore and it just for years, these shoes did not wear out. Dublin, Ireland, inventor David Bonney recently decided to change the marketing of his new shoes to Atheist Shoes. Two years earlier, he had started the business with the idea of selling Christian shoes that contained water in the soles so that wearers could walk on water.Questionable judgments Four days after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., officials at Public School 79 in New York City decided it would be a good time for a full-blown lockdown drill with no advance warning. Though P.S. 79 is a high school and not an elementary school, it is composed of about 300 students with special needs (autism, cerebral palsy, severe emotional disorders) who, with their teachers, were startled to hear the early-morning loudspeaker blaring, Shooter (or, possibly, intruder), get out, get out, lockdown. One adult said it took her about five minutes to realize that it was only a drill. Still, said another, It was probably the worst feeling I ever had in my life. Neighborhood observers reported in December that the asbestos-removal crew working at the former YWCA in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, consisted merely of volunteer teenagers who are students at the local religious Buckeye Education School. State regulations require that asbestos (known to cause deadly respiratory illnesses) be handled only by certified contractors using hazardous-materials gear. Buckeye and other officials, while emphasizing that the students were volunteers, declined to say who authorized them to work. In November, Tokyos Kenichi Ito, 29, bested his own Guinness World Record by a full second (down to 17.47 seconds) in the 100-meter dash on all fours. Mr. Ito runs like a Patas monkey, which he has long admired, and which (along with his self-described monkey-like face) inspired him nine years ago to take up four-legged running. He reported trouble only once, when he went to the mountains to train and was shot at by a hunter who mistook him for a wild boar.Fetishists on paradeWilliam Michael Martin, 45, was charged in January with burglary of the East Texas Medical Center in Lufkin, Texas, where he went apparently in search of womens underwear and employees personal photos, which police said he used as masturbation aids. At his home, police discovered a cache of womens underwear and several beach balls, which officers learned from photos were so that Martin could put them under his clothing and pose as pregnant.

He made the announcement to the chamber staff and board of directors Jan. 24. During the next 12 months, we will continue to work hard on advancing our member services, championing partnerships and alliances for economic diversity and leadership development throughout our region, Mr. Reagen said. I also obviously will help with the search for my successor as the board leaders wish. He added: When offered the opportunity to come here in 2002, I said my plan was to work 10 years, try to make a contribution that was well received, retire and be engaged with the community so my wife Susan and I could enjoy Naples for the next 20 years. Now, after nearly 11 years, it is time for me to begin to leave the party. Michael Wynn, chairman of the chamber board, said Mr. Reagen will continue to lead the chamber and be especially active in regional economic development work in the months ahead. A national search for his replacement will be developed later in the year, he added. In its 50-year history, the chamber has never had a transformational leader like Mike Reagen. Mr. Wynn said. His positive impact on our organization and on our community will be felt for many years to come. We are truly grateful that 11 years ago, he chose to bring his talents to Collier County. Mike is committed to working with us this year as we take our time in conducting an extensive and careful search to find a candidate who can build on the strong foundation that he has built. Dudley Goodlette, chair-elect of the board of directors, is working with Mr. Reagen and others on regional economic efforts. Mr. Goodlette praised Mr. Reagen for his tremendous vision and leadership and said the board will benefit from his steady hand and wise counsel during the search for his successor. Mr. Wynn said a national search for Mr. Reagens replacement will be developed later in the year. REAGEN Join the celebration honoring 2013 Men of DistinctionThe Education Foundation Champions for Learning honors the 2013 Men of Distinction for their dedication and philanthropic service to benefit the children of Collier County.

The number has been more or less flat since the November election because of improving economic conditions and Congress delay handing the federal governments fiscal problems, says Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Responses to the five survey components used to reflect confidence were mixed. When survey takers were asked if they are better off financially than a year ago, their overall response showed a three-point decline to 59. However, expectations that their own personal finances will improve by this time next year rose one point to 77. Faith in the U.S. economy over the coming year was unchanged at 76, while the outlook on economic conditions for the next five years fell two points to 76. Finally, opinions about whether now is a good time to buy big-ticket retail goods such as televisions rose one point to 87. There had been a strong possibility of a much bigger dip in January if the fiscal cliff in Washington had not been averted, Mr. McCarty says. Although Congress put off taking major action, it did raise taxes on incomes exceeding $400,000 a year by reverting to Clinton-era tax levels. It also repealed the payroll tax cut, although it may take Floridians a while to notice this in their paychecks. These changes might explain why consumer confidence decreased by seven points for Floridas more affluent households but rose five points for those making less than $30,000. Other mixed economic trends were also under way. Floridas unemployment rate declined again in December by one-tenth of a percent to 8 percent, only slightly higher than the national 7.8 percent rate. The stock market also hit a postrecession high, and the housing market is improving, too. Some areas of Florida are actually experiencing shortages of existing homes, leading to increased construction, Mr. McCarty says. In fact, Floridians saw the median price of a single-family home increase to $154,000 in December, almost matching its 2008 value. Though overall housing prices remain far below their peak in June 2006, they have increased substantially since bottoming out, thus helping many Florida homeowners who were under water in their mortgages, he adds. Despite these positive indicators, consumer confidence could decline in February as consumers begin to notice the effect of a return to pre-stimulus payroll tax levels, a change in withholding from 4.2 to 6.2 percent, Mr. McCarty cautions. And in March, Congress will confront $109 billion in scheduled cuts it postponed in January. If the cuts are finally made, federal agencies could compensate for them quickly with layoffs, furloughs and cuts in services and grants.

SHOWROOM COMING SOON Forty years ago, the first seafood festival in Everglades City took place as a means to raise funds for much-needed playground equipment for the local children. Organizers expected to feed about 500 people, so you can imagine their surprise when more than 5,000 people descended on the former county seat, creating a major traffic jam in the tiny town. After realizing the fundraising potential of a little fish fry in their community, the citizens of Everglades City decided to host one every year. Thus the Everglades Seafood Festival and the Everglades Betterment Association, the nonprofit agency that oversees the festivals earnings, were born. For 39 years, the festival took place on the first full weekend in February. In recent years, however, organizers attributed a decline in Sunday attendance to the Super Bowl and decided to push the fish fry and all its festivities back one weekend beginning this year, with the 40th anniversary event. So the 2013 Everglades Seafood Festival is set for Friday-Sunday, Feb. 8-10. While the entertainers vary from year to year, the food and the whole reason for the festivals being never change: All proceeds continue to benefit the Everglades City community, funding things such as a community center and a skating rink, as well as equipment for the fire station and its volunteer firefighters. Scholarships for local high school students also get a boost from the festival. Everglades City School juniors and seniors man the soft drink booths every year and use their earnings to help with prom and yearbook expenses. (The is one of only two K-12 public schools in Florida.) Festival organizers report that 42,000 people came out for the 2012 event to enjoy the abundance of stone crab claws, smoked mullet and Indian fry bread (plus hush puppies, corn on the cob, frog legs, barbecue, burgers and funnel cakes), music and vendors offering everything from spices to handcrafted jewelry and ceramics. Local civic groups and churches host booths for their own fundraising projects as well. Dont miss the alligator wrestling, and dont even think about leaving the kids at home. Theres plenty of fun for the youngsters, from face painting and carnival rides to ice cream and cotton candy. I hope to see you there. Ill be signing copies of my book in front of the Museum of the Everglades, just off the town circle, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Come say hi! Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981.

Picnickers can relax, however, as none of its students are the six-legged variety. The school is an example of citizen science, a project where ordinary people collect and submit data for experts to review and compile. Participants collect ants from their yards and neighborhoods, and then entomologists identify each species and plot its location on digital maps that, eventually, will provide a snapshot of ant distribution around the country. Knowledge of the presence of a species of ant might help for things like quarantine and control, if the species is a problem, says Andrea Lucky, an assistant scientist with UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Also, she says, If we find a rare ant, or an ant thats way outside its known range, we may want to keep an eye on it purely for academic purposes. The School of Ants was launched at North Carolina State University in 2011, a collaboration between Ms. Lucky and Rob Dunn, a biology assistant professor. Last semester, Ms. Lucky took a position with UFs entomology and nematology department. Though the NCSU branch remains active, Ms. Lucky says she is thrilled to relocate the project headquarters to Florida, which has more ant species than any other state. We want to really focus on Florida, she says. The ant populations are so diverse, and were eager to get a handle on whats here. The Sunshine State is home to about 150 native ants and 50 more that came from other places, including the notorious red imported fire ant. Scientists often have a poor understanding of ant distribution at the city or county level, even for pest species that regularly attract human attention, Ms. Lucky says. One reason is that many ant species are difficult to identify. The School of Ants solves that problem by assigning the task to entomologists who specialize in ants, she adds. The schools biggest accomplishment thus far has been to show that the invasive Asian needle ant has spread beyond its original stomping grounds in North Carolina and became established in Wisconsin, New York State and Washington State. The voracious pest wipes out native ant populations in hardwood forests and packs a painful sting. This is the kind of thing citizen science can accomplish, because you have so many eyes and so many hands out there working, Ms. Lucky says. Volunteers can register at www.schoolofants.org and follow instructions on collecting ant specimens and mailing them in, along with data including the location and time the ants were collected.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 NEWS A25 Two oclock Saturday afternoon and the millionaires converge on the lawn at The Ritz. Theyre in the heat of it now, guzzling and grappling over auction lots for trips to Paris, South Africa, the Kentucky Derby. They down their spirits and raise their paddles. They sip, they bid, they clap, they kiss. Oh! The money, the wine, the lots, the charity theyre so happy, theyre spitting. These trustees and guests of the Naples Winter Wine Festival are titans in the world of business and industry, men and women of utmost distinction and success. They are humanitarians, yes, but step into the big top on auction day and see that they are also wineimbibing brutes, vintage-guzzling gluttons, carousing in the depths of their philanthropy. They sit under crystal chandeliers real crystal in a tent! snacking on pretzel crisps, sipping away their inhibitions. When wives act too reserved, husbands reach in: Give me that paddle, Ill do it! When husbands put the paddle down too soon, wives pick it up, smiling, ever coy. They circle other tables, lean in to other couples: Do you want to go in on the Tuscan escape? No one bats an eye. Theyre bidding, not sweating, the air conditioning pumped in so steadily that the women wear shawls til they feel the glow of their wine. Warmed up now, a feisty one pinches her sommelier on the rear. Ah, the revelry, they make it look so civilized. Auctioneers work to move the egos in the crowd to their pockets: Whos the most romantic man in the room? A gentleman dressed in a dapper white suit raises a $120,000 bid on a ninenight Italian holiday. What a man! Another lot, another nudge: Whos the best golfer in the room? You dont want to be sitting at home watching the Masters on TV, how anticlimactic. Lot 16 incites a duel: VIP tickets to the Emmys, walk the red carpet, attend the HBO after party. The British auctioneer fans the fray: How about $110,000 to really piss her off? How about $120,000 against you both? $130,000 and you will make this grown man cry! Lot 47 brings more prodding: Charlie Parkers cooking for you, for Gods sake. How classy can you get? Along with the meal, Billy Dean singing. Holy cow! Hes a sex symbol, you see $250,000. Shall we leave it there, or shall we push for one more? Are you done, Madame? Are you sure? These bidders are voracious. They swirl, they swig, they bid. They swirl, they swig, they bid. Their hands never idle. When they win, they dance. When they bid more than they intended oh, never mind on to the next! As the gentry bid higher and higher, festival volunteers band around them, shaking noisemakers and tambourines. Their festival T-shirts tout the mantra for the commotion: Bid high. Bid often. Its all for the kids! At the beginning of the day, some volunteers were taken aback: $130,000? Thats a house! But now that theyve seen a Ferrari F12berlinetta go for $750,000 nearly as fast as its engine accelerates, theyre jaded when it comes to later lots: $340,000? Thats all? Come on! Youve got more than that. The escalating brouhaha gives new meaning to the song lyrics that blare between the bids: Michael Jacksons disco boogie Dont stop, dont stop til you get enough, now seems geared toward charity. The hot country hit Here for the Party lends to the double entendre of the fest. And then theres Katy Perry pleading, Come on, show em what youre worth Public relations specialists reach for the calculators on their cell phones to tally up the money as it flies about.

NCEF awards grants based on needs assessments that have shown major gaps in local childrens services in the following critical areas: medical/dental care, vision care, early childhood education, out-of-school services, behavioral health and childhood hunger. This years Meet the Kids Day took place at the new Baker Field at the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County. More than 100 children and representatives from 29 nonpro t organizations were on hand. Baker Field is a state-of-the-art facility that provides underserved and at-risk youth and children with a safe place to play and participate in educational and character development programs designed by the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation. All programming is funded by an NCEF grant.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 more, another million. By the end of the 13th annual Naples Winter Wine Festival, $8.6 million has been collected on behalf of the underprivileged children of Collier County.The more fun, the more moneyThrough the Naples Children & Education Foundation, the charitable arm of the wine festival, children suffering from untreated tooth decay have received dental care; those in need of eye glasses have gotten two pair, one for home, one for school; and those who are hungry have been given hot meals. So yes, the Naples Winter Wine Festival is all about the children but its also all about the status, that palpable beast in the room. And dont forget the wine. Its as ample as the wealth, for these bidders, these donors, these festival trustees are a crowd fit for the chronicles of Tom Wolfe. I hate these people, one sommelier says to the laughter of his cohorts as he saunters back from pouring wine at his table. He notices a reporters notebook nearby and feels the need to clarify. No, I didnt mean that. Its just that these people are so remarkably generous, they can do things I will never be able to do in my whole life. And they do it so willingly and so graciously, I wish I had the opportunity. So its not hate, its jealousy. Total jealousy. Just look at the generosity at table 24. There are 12 bottles of wine on the table when the lot called Chateaux and Lights comes up. Two couples will travel to Paris and Bordeaux in June with vintners Shahpar and Darioush Khaledi for six nights of wining and dining. Six bottles of the Darioush flagship wine Darius II are included in the lot. Dave and Pat Gibbons want that lot. Their friends Jim and Martha Fligg want to join them. The bidding begins. Bids start at $25,000 and quickly go up to $50,000, up to $80,000. Mr. Gibbons bides his time, then stands up tall to place his $110,000 bid. The auctioneer acknowledges his assertive stance with, Good afternoon, sir. Some aspirant challenges the bid. Mr. Gibbons thinks of all the fun to be had in France, the tours and private tastings. He raises his paddle for $130,000. The aspirant strikes again. Mr. Gibbons thinks of his 48th wedding anniversary coming up June 12 in the midst of this trip. He raises his paddle for $150,000. The aspirant paddles back. Mr. Gibbons thinks of the children, the boy who spoke at the beginning of the auction about how he packs lunches for his nephews every day and if it were not for the wine fest, he would have no food to give them. Mr. Gibbons raises his paddle for $170,000. Shot down by the aspirant. Cameras are zooming in on Mr. Gibbons now. He practices no restraint, raising his paddle again and again, like hes in some championship ping-pong match. Do you want it? belts the auctioneer. Mrs. Gibbons bellows back, Yes, we do! Woo hoo! The Gibbonses and the Fliggs win the French excursion for $220,000. They hug and kiss. Fellow bidders walk over to pat their backs in congratulations, pointing fingers at the winners as if to say, You! You! Mr. Gibbons sighs in the afterglow of his triumph, then sits down to eat his short rib slider with Vidalia onion relish. He does not see the decadence, the rampant indulgence of the festival as too much. He looks at the effect, not the excess. What makes this so successful is that its so much fun, he says. The best chefs in the world, the best vintners in the world, ask us, Can we please be invited back again? They turn down countless other invites to come here. They want to come here. They ask to come back here to Naples. The more fun, the more money. The more chefs, the more vintners, the more bidders, the more the end result achieves what the festival trustees set out to do: Raise money to help the disadvantaged and at-risk kids of Collier County. Thats how the obscenity of it all turns to charity. And all the pampering, all the extravagance, all the attentive wining and dining are perfectly paced to put the bidders in the mood.Affecting our corner of the worldAs trustees of NCEF and thereby the festival, Mr. and Mrs. Gibbons hosted a vintner dinner the Friday evening before the auction. Emeritus trustees Frank and Mary Pat Hussey stepped in as their co-hosts. In keeping with the theme of the 2013 festival, When the Stars Align, the dinner was designed around the concept of Stars in a Burgundy Sky, playing off the color, the wine and the region in France. Guests arrived at dusk. As the doors to their limos opened, a French maiden, her shoulders bare in a peasant shirt, handed each woman a long-stemmed rose, Bonsoir. Midway up the drive, a smiling man wearing a black beret and a red ascot played the accordion. Instructed to stay in character, he didnt say much more than Merci, Madame et Monsieur, for if he got to chatting, he would hold the guests captive, Back in my day Up the stairs, the guests were met by a photographer to have their picture taken in front of a green screen (unbeknownst to them at this point, at the end of the evening they would be presented a framed photograph with the backdrop of Morey Saint Denis melded in so it would look like they had actually traveled to the vineyard of the wine they were drinking). Its a catalyst, dinner guest Rusty Staub says of the opulence, the celebrity chefs and the vintner gods. Theres a lot of wealth here in Naples, and they made the decision they were going to take care of these kids If they arent taking care of them, nobody is. Wine Spectator has ranked the Naples Winter Wine Festival the most successful charity wine auction event in the nation since 2004. Mr. Staub says the wine and the food and the wealth are the draw. People want to come and be a part of it. A former major league ballplayer, Mr. Staub lives in West Palm Beach. Come January, he makes his way to the Gulf Coast in support of the wine fest; he has attended every one. You cant pull something out of the sky, he says to those concerned that the exorbitance of the event might be too much. The wine festival is about people caring about those who have nothing, or almost less than nothing. Theyve made the decision, because they have so much, theyre not going to let that happen to all of these kids. Theyre going to give these kids a chance. Its not changing the path of the earth, but its changing the path of thousands of children here.Setting the moodThe Naples Winter Wine Festival might not be changing the course of the cosmos, but for her vintner dinner, Mrs. Gibbons hired lighting engineers Laura and Matt Brabinski with Lola and Leo at Meet the Kids Day, for the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida.STEPHEN WRIGHT/ FLORIDA WEEKLY Through the years $116 million Amount raised by the Naples Winter Wine Festival since 2001 36 Charities that have received grants from the Naples Children & Education Foundation, the festivals founding organization, since the rst festival 150,000 Number of underprivileged and at-risk children bene ting from festival proceeds since 2001 38 percent Percentage of Collier County children served by the NCEF No. 1 Festivals ranking as nations top charity wine auction since 2004 by Wine Spectator magazine 500 Guests under the auction tent in 2013 $2 million Winning bid at 2007 festival for a Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe and one of the highest bids ever for a single lot at a charity wine auction worldwide $8,500 Cost for one couple to attend the festival $20,000 Cost for two couples to attend the festival and the same Friday evening vintner dinner in a private home 100-by-148 feet Size of the tent at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort for the live auction and the Sunday celebration brunch 2,500 Wine glasses on hand for Saturdays auction, wine tasting and culinary showcase 420 Number of volunteers who help prepare for the gala and were involved during the festivities, serving as wine stewards, greeters, auction spotters, etc. WINEFrom page 25 ABOVE: Laurent Ponsot at the Friday dinner at the home of Pat and Dave Gibbons.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 NEWS A27 to make it appear as if clouds were moving across the barrel-shaped ceiling clouds cast in shades of burgundy, of course. As her guests made their way out onto her lanai to dine, it looked as though a string trio was levitating above the spa of the swimming pool. The musicians were atop on a plate of Plexiglas. And those lighting engineers had turned the water into wine, as theatrical ingenuity had turned the pool into a sea of burgundy. As they tucked into a sumptuous feast of Nantucket Bay scallops, seared foie gras and truffle-roasted pheasants, none of her guests could have fathomed how close the details came to coming together in time. But even in the disarray of the day before, when the scallops had not yet arrived and she still had to pick up her auction slacks from Saks, Mrs. Gibbons did not stress. She spoke of a trip she took to Immokalee. Mrs. Gibbons went picking in the tomato fields, filling up a 32-pound bucket for a 50-cent ticket. She went there with NCEF to see the population and see the poverty the foundation hopes to dispel. There was a woman in the fields, she had been there since she was a teenager, she began. When she heard I was an RN, she grinned at me and said, My daughters an RN at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Because of your group, she was able to go college and become an RN at the Mayo Clinic. She was so proud. It was just beautiful. She told me, This (picking tomatoes in the fields) is in my blood, but thank God my kids wont have to do it. Ay, theres the rub of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, the power it has to roll the world away. French vintner Laurent Ponsot describes the festival this way: Its kind of a parentheses in time. Youre not really in the normal world when youre here. The wine fest does, indeed, transcend the normal world. It can turn a Naples home into a French chateaux. Better yet, it can transcend the misfortunes of children by way of a soiree of millionaires, leaving no one to question the means of such wine-fueled philanthropy.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA34 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 The importance of Being Nice Being Nice. Theres a wonderful ring to it, and its what I think we all stand for at NCH. Lets face it, positive feedback is so important and too rare in todays society. So living our NCH values through Being Nice is a ready antidote for negative feelings. Im proud to say that Being Nice has become the norm at NCH. Indeed, connecting our vision of being a world-class provider of excellence in healthcare with our mission of helping everyone lead longer, happier, and healthier livesis all about Being Nice. Being Nice captures our spirit of professionalism in placing the patients interest ahead of our own. Being Nice underscores our seven SERVICE values: Stewardship. We take pride in all that we do and take ownership of our resources. Equality. We acknowledge and value each person, recognizing and celebrating diversity to enrich our organization. Respect. We treat all individuals within our community including colleagues, patients and their families with dignity. Value. We value teamwork, building on individual ideas and talents in a collaborative environment. Integrity. We adhere to the highest ethical standards and take personal responsibility in all that we do. Compassion. We provide excellent care with empathy, respect and sensitivity, nurturing the mind, body, and spirit. Excellence. We devote ourselves to delivering the highest quality in clinical and service outcomes. This is what we stand for. And its what more than 3,000 of our colleagues reviewed at Be Nice meetings this past holiday season. We understand the singular importance of Being Nice for the patients, families and ourselves as we embrace our culture of service excellence. Becoming world-class demands that we deliver excellence in service to our patients, visitors and to each other as colleagues at all times every day and in every way. Performing technical tasks to the highest standards has always been our focus. NCH has been recognized for technical competence in many ways U. S. News & World Report ranking, Society of Thoracic Surgeons top 10 percent for the past two years, Most Wired for expertise with information technology, and many other quality awards. Combining this technical competence with Being Nice will accomplish our noble goal of helping those we serve lead longer, happier and healthier lives.

Employees who receive these awards from managers will continue to participate in the daily lottery. Additionally, colleagues can recognize co-workers by sharing a new recognition card. We will also post some of these colleague-to-colleague stories on our website, in a new Be Nice, Heroes and Legends page. Our goal is to celebrate successes and lift up our Be Nice heroes, creating legends from our daily delivery of Service Excellence. Protein research could lead the way to the ideal anti-obesity drug THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAUniversity of Florida researchers and colleagues have identified a protein that, when absent, helps the body burn fat and prevents insulin resistance and obesity. The findings from the National Institutes of Health-funded study were published earlier this month in the journal Nature Medicine. The discovery could aid development of drugs that not only prevent obesity, but also spur weight loss in people who are already overweight, says Dr. Stephen Hsu, one of the studys corresponding authors and a principal investigator with the UF Sid Martin Biotechnology Development Institute. One-third of adults and about 17 percent of children in the United States are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although unrelated studies have shown that lifestyle changes such as choosing healthy food over junk food and increasing exercise can help reduce obesity, people are often unable to maintain these changes over time, Dr. Hsu says. The problem is when these studies end and the people go off the protocols, they almost always return to old habits and end up eating the same processed foods they did before and gaining back the weight they lost during the study. Developing drugs that target the protein, called TRIP-Br2, and mimic its absence might allow for the prevention of obesity without relying solely on lifestyle modifications, he adds. TRIP-Br2 helps regulate how fat is stored in and released from cells. To understand its role, the researchers compared mice that lacked the gene responsible for production of the protein, with normal mice that had the gene. They quickly discovered that mice missing the TRIP-Br2 gene did not gain weight no matter what they ate even when placed on a high-fat diet and were otherwise normal and healthy. On the other hand, the mice that still made TRIP-Br2 gained weight and developed associated problems such as insulin resistance, Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol when placed on a high-fat diet. The normal and fat-resistant mice ate the same amount of food, ruling out differences in food intake as a reason why the mice lacking TRIPBr2 were leaner. We had to explain why the animals eating so much fat were remaining lean and not getting high cholesterol. Where was this fat going? Dr. Hsu says. It turns out this protein is a master regulator. It coordinates expression of a lot of genes and controls the release of the fuel form of fat and how it is metabolized. When functioning normally, TRIPBr2 restricts the amount of fat that cells burn as energy. But when TRIP-Br2 is absent, a fat-burning fury seems to occur in fat cells. Although other proteins have been linked to the storage and release of fat in cells, TRIP-Br2 is unique in that it regulates how cells burn fat in a few different ways, Dr. Hsu explains. When TRIP-Br2 is absent, fat cells dramatically increase the release of free fatty acids and also burn fat to produce the molecular fuel called ATP that powers mitochondria the cells energy source. In addition, cells free from the influence of TRIP-Br2 start using free fatty acids to generate thermal energy, which protects the body from exposure to cold. TRIP-Br2 is important for the accumulation of fat, says Dr. Rohit Kulkarni, also a senior author of the paper and an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and the Joslin Diabetes Center. When an animal lacks TRIP-Br2, it cant accumulate fat. Because the studies were done mostly in mice, additional studies are still needed to see if the findings translate to humans. We are very optimistic about the translational promise of our findings, because we showed that only human subjects who had the kind of fat (visceral) that becomes insulinresistant also had high protein levels of TRIP-Br2, Dr. Hsu says. Imagine you are able to develop drugs that pharmacologically mimic the complete absence of TRIP-Br2, he says, If a patient started off fat, he or she would burn the weight off. If people are at risk of obesity and its associated conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes, it would help keep them lean regardless of how much fat they ate. That is the ideal anti-obesity drug, one that prevents obesity and helps people burn off excess weight. HEALTHY LIVING allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

Cleveland Avenue, Fort Myers Monday-Saturday 9am-6pm www.MariosMeatMarket.com BY DR. MARTY BECKER Universal UclickEvery year, I go to as many veterinary conferences as I can. I have always loved to learn and I need to stay on the cutting edge for my work in the media. Last year, several veterinary products caught my attention. Theyll be worth watching as they roll into veterinary practices this year. In random order: Zeuterin: A few years ago, I made the decision to return to practice. I missed it, so now I see pets and their people at two north Idaho veterinary hospitals whenever I can. Recently, I was able to participate in the staff training for a product that will revolutionize the way we neuter dogs. Zeuterin is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved non-surgical product injected directly into the testicles. Its fast, its easy on everyone and it has already proven its value in neutering overpopulations of dogs in third-world countries and in the abandoned area around the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. (ArkSciences.com) Kerdog by SophiaDog: I first saw this product last summer at the American Veterinary Medical Associations annual conference. It had quite the buzz on the trade-show floor, and with good reason. Its a wheeled cart for dogs that does more than support an animal undergoing rehabilitation. The product has pedals for the rear paws that teach the animal to use his legs while strengthening the muscles. Eventually, the pedals are removed and the dog walks with support from the cart, and then on his own. (SophiaDog.com) OraStrip Quick Check: Your veterinarian can tell in minutes if your dog has periodontal disease with OraStrip Quick Check, a diagnostic strip that tests a pets saliva and color when active disease is present. Treatment options can then be explored in time to reduce the suffering caused by this painful and harmful condition. (Orastrip.com) IDEXX VetConnect Plus: I love my tablet computer, and I love seeing all the ways were starting to use these in veterinary medicine. With this system from IDEXX, my patients laboratory reports show an easy-toread interactive format and can be viewed on a desktop, laptop or tablet. Theyre all in one place, and I can use my tablet to go over the Cloudbased results with the pets owner. The company says more than 3,000 veterinary practices in the United States are already using the system since it was launched last July. (IDEXX.com/ vetconnectplus) Royal Canin Veterinary Diets CALM: With proven links between illness and behavior problems to the increased levels of stress caused by anxiety, theres a need for food to soothe anxious pets. New from Royal Canin Veterinary Diets is CALM, the first product of its kind, available through veterinarians. CALM includes three proven ingredients to relieve stress and anxiety without the use of medication. (Royalcanin.us/calm) These are the five products that really caught my attention last year, but I easily could have listed a couple dozen more. Changes and innovations are a constant in medicine, which is yet another reason to work with your veterinarian to stay on top of pet care breakthroughs. Your pet will benefit, and so will you. A handful of new products for veterinary use aim to improve lives for pets and their people.

B7 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF JAN. 31-FEB. 6, 2013 Local pizzerias are gearing up for one of their biggest days of the year Super Bowl Sunday, among the top five days when Americans turn to pizza as their game day go-to. It simply makes sense: A phone call or mouse click away, pizza is quick, easy and delivered right to the door. Fans dont miss a play or commercial. A lot of people like to watch the game at home, have a party or go to a party, says Jeremy White, editor-in-chief of Pizza Today, a 40,000-subscriber trade magazine catering to independent and small-chain pizzerias. The good news is that pizza is typically the food of choice for a Super Bowl party. People arent going to order from a steakhouse, burger joint or Chinese restaurant. Theres a high probability theyll want pizza and wings. Nationally, pizza shops report a 35 to 45 percent increase in business, compared to non-Super Bowl Sundays. Game day profits rank right behind Halloween and Thanksgiving Eve, which trade off as the No. 1 pizza day (New Years Eve and New Years Day round out the top five). Local pizzeria owners see anywhere from a 10 to 50 percent increase in business, especially in to-go and delivery sales. Most of their Super Bowl orders are regular customers who prefer to watch the game at home and place larger-then-usual pick-up or delivery orders. The way I see it, the Super Bowl is Pizza is typically the food of choice for a Super Bowl party. People arent going to order from a steakhouse, burger joint or Chinese restaurant.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 239-434-0300 www.aemc.cc American Eagle has the Solution! MONEY & INVESTINGApple: Bloom is off the roseApple was a seemingly perfect technology and investment story, but now the bloom is off the rose. The great story is no longer great enough; the good numbers are no longer good enough. And the stock has plummeted. Since mid-September, it has been hard times for Apple investors at least for those investors who have been long the stock. Yet, for investors shorting Apple, profits have been gargantuan and quick. Apple reached $705 per share price Sept. 18. As of Friday, Jan. 25, it closed at $439. Apple is 38 percent off its peak. What has happened? Apple, in consumer terms, was noted for its rollout of new generational tech hardware. In Wall Street terms, it was loved for its positive surprises in revenues, earnings, units sold, profit margin expansion and more. Apple migrated and expanded margins as it rolled from high-end desktops to notebooks to iPods to iPhones to iPads all with slick look and great functions. Then came the hammer. On Jan 23, Apple reported no profit margin growth and the slowest increase in sales in 14 quarters. Apples business model has been shiny new hardware and proprietary code. In smartphone and notepads/portable computing hardware, Apple had no peer. That is until Google, which is not a hardware provider, decided to expand beyond being No. 1 in search engines and become ubiquitous in data management and storage. Google realized that portable computing would eventually dominate the computing space and it created a strategy to offer free, open operating software (the Android operating system). Open O/S allowed a large number of smartphone/hardware manufacturers to make products to compete with Apple. It also allowed millions of third-party software developers for its apps to contribute to Androids success. Google helps the manufacturers, as its goal has been to drive the price of smartphone hardware as far and as fast as possible. The more hardware out there, the more data it controls and stores and searches and for which it finds ways to get paid. So it is possibly Google that has set the stage for Apples stumbling. Of all the Android manufacturers, Samsung emerged as market leader by offering high-end, sleek, functional and much cheaper portable computing hardware (smartphone and tablets). Until 2012, Apple had little competition. Now, Samsungs products are taking off internationally (particularly in behemoths such as China and India) as they allow less wealthy international consumers to buy high-end portable computing hardware. Its smartphone offers much longer battery life, a larger screen, an AMOLED screen (or active matrix organic light emitting diode screen screens that are not breakable.) Very cool especially for the Chinese who need the larger screen and longer life battery for their game-playing obsessions. Though statistics from Strategy Analytics, Gartner and IDC on global market penetration seem to widely conflict, they do not conflict with Samsungs leapfrog ahead. The website www.appleInsider quoted an IDC report as follows: Samsung easily outpaced Apple in 2012, growing its shipments by 129.1 percent, more than doubling Apples year-over-year growth. Samsung also saw its market share grow from 19 percent in 2011, when it was in a dead heat with Apple, to 39.6 percent in 2012, or nearly 15 percentage points ahead of Apple. So how did Samsung do it? Some think the answer is found in its internal vertical manufacturing process. In an industry characterized by increasingly faster rollouts of smartphones and tablets, integrated manufacturing is a very big deal. Apple shunned integrated manufacturing until recently when it announced a co-venture with a manufacturing partner Foxconn in China will remain Apples outsourced manufacturer. While Samsung dominates the market, Apple investors point to profitability and claim Apple supreme. Apple seems less perturbed by market share as it corners 80 percent of profits in the smart-phone business. (Jan 23, the Times of India, Ex-Apple CEO: Apple wont pip Samsung in India) However, beyond market share, is the investment race really between Apple and Samsung? Isnt it hardware versus software, with Google as the real victor? So says a strong Apple critic, Reggie Middleton of www.BoomBustBlog.com. As with most surprise negative stories (and we can easily think back to Goldman Sachs, BP, etc.), the bad news sometimes gets overpriced and cheap might get cheaper. Frequently, portfolio managers will sell a failed stock by month or quarter end so that their portfolio lists show no or little holding. Portfolio realignment can take a while and keeps pressure on the stock. The downward pressure on Apple might be buffered by the hedge funds, that were short Apple (counting on the eventual fall for Apple) and long Samsung or Google (counting on their relative outperformance), and might be unwinding those trades now. Maybe Apple was overbought and overloved at $705 and maybe it is oversold and overfeared at $439. Google trades at 23 times earnings and Apple trades at 10 times. Apple has oodles of cash and pays a 2 percent dividend.

QUALIT T RVICEa home event for a lot of people, says Dennis Valentino, co-owner of Bocco Lupo in Port Charlotte which specializes in 1,200-degree coal-fired pizza and was a recent best of Charlotte chicken wing finalist. We generally see heavy to-go traffic all day long and a big increase right before the game and during halftime. We do have a bar crowd that will come out and eat and stay at the bar and watch the game. Then there are those people who sit in the restaurant and dont care about the game. Mr. Valentino estimates his takeout business increases by 50 percent on Super Bowl Sunday. We can tell when our regulars are having people at home because theyll order multiple pies, anywhere from three to 10. While some Joes Pizza customers may watch part of the game in the Port Charlotte restaurants small dining room, most opt for delivery. Michelle Freda, general manager and daughter of founder Joe Freda, says Sundays are always busy during the Englewood/Rotonda areas winter high season; the Super Bowl could increase business 10 to 20 percent. We only have one TV, so most of our business is pick-up or delivery, she says. A lot of customers will place their order the day before and pick it up right before the game. Others wait until halftime. With Super Bowl TV ads running in the six digits, only the national chains can afford to advertise. Mr. White urges independent operators to take advantage of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media. And if theyve heeded the advice from Pizza Today and its affiliate, the National Association of Pizzeria Operators, they should have launched their Super Bowl promos two weeks ago. We always tell them they need to be aggressive in their promotions and strategies the weeks and days leading up to the game, he says. Social media is highly effective and inexpensive. Its a great way to let their fan base know right away if theyre offering deals. Local pizza parlors have different strategies for getting their share of the Super Bowl profit pie (pun intended). The togo-only Bocco Lupo doesnt have a website but its Facebook following numbers more than 2,600 fans who are alerted via the social network to weekly Thursday specials. Mr. Valentino expects to use Facebook to promote Super Bowl Sunday pizza and wing specials. We feel pizza is a loyalty thing, she says. Our customers know how great our pies are. Were their pizza place and theyre going to come here for their Super Bowl pizza and wings. The 8-year-old Joes doesnt advertise, says Ms. Freda. We are a family hometown restaurant and most of our business is through word of mouth, she says. We dont run radio commercials. Our business is purely through our customers. Jason Kohn, owner of Downtown House of Pizza in downtown Fort Myers, said hell drum up business by again participating in the River Districts Super Bowl entertainment promo, which touts some 185 TVs in 40 venues within a four-block radius. Although his pizzeria has just one 60-inch screen, the strategy paid off last year. Mr. Kohn thinks hell also benefit from walk-in patrons attending the last day of downtowns annual ArtFest. Its about finding the most comfortable situation youd like to watch a game in, he says. We did it last year and saw an increase. Were also working with ArtFest to encourage people not to run home for the game, but stay downtown. For Mr. Kohn, downtown events and block parties more so than a one-day game tend to be more profitable. We definitely do see an increase on the delivery end, probably double, and we do cater to some of the local sports bars but the Super Bowl isnt necessarily one of my highest-revenue days, says Mr. Kohn. Im in an area where there are a lot of big events and endless amounts of people downtown for hours and hours. Local businesses are planning for the onslaught, doubling staffing from kitchen to to-go counter, dining room and delivery. Being able to accommodate that influx in business can be a make or break opportunity for these independent businesses, says Mr. White. The Super Bowl can be a great opportunity but it can also be a devil in disguise. If theyre not prepared and a first-time customer comes in and has a bad experience, they are not going to come back. The customer doesnt care if theyre busy, that two people called in sick. All they care about is being served a good product politely and efficiently. If they let the customer down, it doesnt hurt them just that one day. Gyrene Burger Co. in Naples is an anomaly to Mr. Whites Super Bowl pizza delivery theory. It does provide delivery by bicycle and is rallying for a surge in business on Sunday, says Danielle OConnor, who with husband Chris became the new owners of the Ninth Street South location Jan. 24 from, ironically, founder Tom Monaghan of Dominos fame. We figure Sunday is going to be a busy day but we dont know how big, she says. The whole concept for the store is 10 minutes from the time its ordered to the door. We have a very specific system and a window. Were still figuring out staffing and discussing how to promote it. Well probably do something on social media and probably will advertise. Gyrenes limited menu burgers with an assortment of toppings, seasoned fries and Coke products will help streamline the process. For larger party orders outside its typical one-mile radius, Ms. OConnor expects to provide car delivery. Joes will call in its multi-taskers those who can cook and deliver, says Ms. Freda. Our delivery drivers do all right, but a lot of people dont realize a $1 tip doesnt go that far for gas and effort, she says, noting Joes promotes www.tipthepizzaguy.com, which recommends a minimal $3 for a small order to 15 percent for larger deliveries. Gas is almost $4 a gallon. Mr. Kohn says Downtown House of Pizza will double its delivery staff for the night of Super Bowl Sunday to cover its five-mile spread. Despite their best intentions, the perfect pie and a quick turnaround, there are some sales-boosting and busting factors out of the restaurant owners control. Mr. White says business is also influenced by the teams and the score. What we find is if its a good, competitive game, there will be more sales during halftime and the second half compared to if its a blowout. We figure people remain more engaged.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Dividend Growth PowerBig blue-chip companies such as General Electric and Corning are exciting not just because of their businesses, but also because of their dividends. If you buy into a healthy company when its dividend yield (annual dividend divided by share price) is 3 percent, youre likely to get that payout every year, regardless of what happens to the stock price. (And today, such a yield easily tops many alternatives, such as bank accounts or CDs.) Heres something investors rarely consider. Imagine you bought 10 shares of Wanton Punctuation (ticker: ?#$@!) for $100 each, and it pays a respectable 3 percent dividend. With a $1,000 investment, thats an annual payout of $30. Not bad. But dividends arent static and permanent. Healthy companies raise them regularly. A few years down the line, perhaps Wanton is trading at $200 per share. Imagine that its dividend yield is still 3 percent, as its dividend has been gradually raised to $6 per share. Note that $6 is a 3 percent yield for anyone buying the stock at $200, but since you bought it at $100, to you its effectively a 6 percent yield. Decades pass. Your initial 10 shares have split and become 100 shares, each worth $90 now. Your initial $1,000 investment is now valued at $9,000. The yield is still 3 percent, paying $2.70 per share, so your 100 shares deliver a whopping $270 per year. Think about this. Youre earning $270 on a $1,000 investment. Thats effectively 27 percent per year (and growing) without even counting any stock-price appreciation. The yield on your initial investment has gone from 3 percent to 27 percent, because you just hung on to a growing company. Even if the stock price drops, youre still likely to get that 27 percent payout unless the firm falls on really hard times. By holding on to many great dividendpaying companies, you can enjoy rising dividend yields over time.

Upper CutMy dumbest investment was when I bought shares of Ambac Financial. It turned out to be my best lesson on the dangers of emotional investing. I thought I was catching it on the upswing, but I ended up getting an upper cut instead, as it fell faster than I could regain my balance. I quickly realized that the market reacts much faster than I can, and a sure-footed investment strategy is a much better plan. T., onlineThe Fool Responds: This bond insurer ran into trouble in 2007, largely due to involvement in mortgage-related securities, and filed for bankruptcy protection in 2010. As is often the case, many people bought shares as they fell, not imagining that the shares could fall further. Its true that some stocks plunge and then recover well, rewarding shareholders. But many do not. If a company runs into trouble, consider steering clear. If youre still considering it, make sure that its problems are short-term and not likely to be long-term. Ambac hurt shareholders along the way by issuing more shares in a desperate attempt to raise money and stay afloat. Four Promising Utility StocksUtility companies are great portfolio stabilizers and income generators. Here are four to consider: Exelon (NYSE: EXC), recently with a dividend yield near 7 percent and annual revenue near $33 billion, is one of Americas largest energy producers. Its also Americas largest nuclear-energy company. With natural gas prices low lately, nuclear power has been losing ground, but we may also see a push for nuclear reactor subsidies in an attempt to rid the U.S. of its reliance on foreign oil. (Motley Fool newsletters have recommended Exelon.) American Water Works (NYSE: AWK), founded in 1886, recently sported a dividend yield of 2.6 percent. Its the largest publicly traded water and wastewater utility company in the United States, relying on everything from costcutting to IT-improvements to increase its profits. Its begun offering services to (controversial) gas-fracking operations, which might boost profits. Southwest Gas (NYSE: SWX), recently yielding 2.7 percent, has upped its dividend by an annual average of about 8 percent over the past five years. It offers natural f\gas service to the southwestern U.S. National Grid (NYSE: NGG), recently yielding more than 5 percent, serves up electricity to the northeastern U.S. and the United Kingdom. Thus, it offers geographic diversification. It also has been investing in alternative energies. Founded in 1980 and based in California, Im a biotechnology giant today. My products include Aranesp, Enbrel, EPOGEN, Neulasta, NEUPOGEN, Nplate, Prolia, Sensipar, Vectibix and XGEVA, and they tackle cancer, kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, bone disease and more. Im a pioneer in products based on advances in recombinant DNA and molecular biology. I employ about 17,000 people worldwide and rake in more than $15 billion annually, while spending more than $3 billion on research and development. I have dozens of treatments in my pipeline. To come up with my name, think of applied molecular genetics. Who am I? (Answer: Amgen) How Now, Dow?QWhen a company is acquired by another, does its stock price always go up? K.G., Dalton, Ga.AIt depends. If the firms market value is around $10 billion and its bought for $15 billion, the stock price may jump on the news. When a company is very desirable, perhaps due to its products or growth prospects, a buyer may have to outbid other interested companies. But if its struggling, it might get scooped up for a song, when its price is depressed. Meanwhile, if investors think that the acquiring company has struck a good deal, its own price might also rise. But if they think it overpaid or wont see a good return on the investment, its price can drop. ***QWhats the Dow? G.W., Fresno, Calif.AIts the Dow Jones Industrial Average, created in 1896 by Charles Dow, who also established The Wall Street Journal. The Dow is viewed by many as representing the entire stock market, but its really just an index of 30 major American companies: 3M, Alcoa, American Express, AT&T, Bank of America, Boeing, Caterpillar, Chevron, Cisco Systems, CocaCola, DuPont, ExxonMobil, General Electric, Hewlett-Packard, Home Depot, Intel, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, JPMorgan Chase, McDonalds, Merck, Microsoft, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, Travelers, United Technologies, UnitedHealth Group, Verizon, Wal-Mart and Walt Disney. The roster often goes many years without any changes. In 2008, Altria, Honeywell and AIG gave way to Chevron, Bank of America and Kraft Foods. In 2012, though, after Kraft spun off part of its business, it was replaced by UnitedHealth. In 2009, Citigroup and General Motors were replaced by Cisco Systems and Travelers. Some major companies, such as Apple and Google, have not yet made the list.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us I b i ll am I ? l l l l l l l l k

A GUIDE TO THE LOCAL REAL ESTATE INDUSTRYREAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY B10WEEK OF JANUARY 31 FEBRUARY 6, 2013 2012 a good year for Stock Development SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYStock Development reports more than 400 new home sales and $280 million in sales company wide for 2012. CEO Brian Stock says new home sales were up 32.4 percent overall, with 405 new units contracted; sales volume was up 50.6 percent, ending the year at $188.5 million. The market strengthened dramatically in 2012, and our decision to aggressively build inventory homes paid dividends, Mr. Stock says. Stock Construction, the building division of Stock Development, had 395 new home sales, a 31.7 percent increase in units and a 48.4 percent increase in sales revenue over the previous year, he adds. The company also reports more than 10,000 people visited its sales centers throughout Southwest Florida last year. The demographics of our buyers were interesting, too, Mr. Stock says. Floridians comprised nearly one-third of our homebuyers, with Canadians coming second at 10 percent. The balance was a broad mix across the Northeast and Midwest. The diversity was encouraging since it shows the economy improving nationally and that Florida homes are seen as providing value to the Canadian market. The company launched new residential projects during the course of 2012 and added new furnished models and expanded amenities in existing communities. Stock communities in the Naples area include Lely Resort, Fiddlers Creek, Treviso Bay, Quail West, Secoya Reserve, Black Bear Ridge and Mediterra. In Lee County, the companys Paseo community earned Community of the Year from the Lee Building Industry Association in 2012 for the seventh consecutive year.

Seven years ago, he had the idea to write a show based on Desperately Seeking Susan, the popular 1985 movie that starred Madonna and Rosanna Arquette. His brainstorm: He would transform the movie into a musical, using the music of Blondie. Everyone thought it would be wildly successful. But the $6 million effort turned into a fiasco. Desperately Seeking Susan: The Musical closed within a month after opening on Londons West End. Mr. Marino was devastated. Hed gambled big and lost big. After a year, he picked himself up and wrote a one-man show about the experience, calling it Desperately Seeking the Playwright turns a musical disaster into a one-man successBY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com SEE FLOP, C4 SEE DEPOT, C25 Flipping a FLOP You look nice todayThat, and other lies.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSBeware the faux-complimentI picked the wrong time to visit New York. High temperatures in the low 20s, low temperatures in the mid-teens. A wind chill that makes me wish Id never left Southwest Florida. In weather like this, you have to bundle up Im talking long johns, hunting caps, coats with upturned collars. This was my wardrobe during my recent visit, with every inch of skin covered except my eyes. What a surprise, then, when I stepped out of the subway station and a man on the street spoke to me. Hey, mam, he said in the way men speak to women in short skirts. I looked around. Was he talking to me? The street was empty and he seemed to be looking in my direction, although it was hard to tell with all those layers. I started to be flattered. I think compliments are good for us good for the ego and good for the soul. But does it count if the person handing out the praise cant see your face? What if he cant make out the shape of your body? Is it still a compliment or just a reflex? Over the course of my trip, I learned there are a lot of false compliments out there, things people say that should make us feel good but end up making us doubt ourselves. Not long after that first cold night, I met an old friend in the city at one of those quintessentially New York diners. Our waiters name was Nelson. He had a Bronx accent and a joking, easy-going manner. When he came back to the table to take our order a second time but we were still catching up, he laughed and said to my friend, Why are you making this ... He started to say beautiful. I heard it. He got the b out before he stopped and looked at me. I dont know if its that Im over 30 in a city where 27 feels pass, if my hair and my clothes say Southwest Florida more than New York, or if my cheeks and nose were still red from the cold. But he changed course. Why are you making this nice lady wait for dinner? Nice lady? Is that even a compliment? But the worst came later that week, when I had lunch with another friend I hadnt seen in more than a year. We met up at our favorite burger joint, a place where we used to eat once a week. Just because I havent seen him in a while doesnt mean Im not still eating cheeseburgers. In fact, Id say I eat more than my fair share. But when my friend stepped through the door and came close to hug me, the first thing he said was, Youre so skinny. I know this is the sort of thing women like to hear. But my friend said it with a curled lip and a furrowed brow in the kind of voice that asks, Did you recently acquire a tapeworm? The prevailing wisdom says we should not rely on others for our selfconfidence, that looking externally for internal reassurance will always disappoint. And to this I say: Aint that the truth. s o a l p t artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com Schedule your Complimentary CoolSculpting Consult Today!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 6, 2013 Exit. He questioned whether such a show would have wide appeal. But surprisingly, the play about the flop turned out to be a hit. It earned fourand five-star reviews at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. People blogged about it, and audiences kept coming. Mr. Marino brings Desperately Seeking the Exit to Theatre Conspiracy at the Alliance of the Arts in Fort Myers for a performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2. Next he takes the show to Australia for the Adelaide Fringe Festival for two weeks in March. In May, he returns to the scene of the original disaster, Londons West End, for a three-week run. Thats a weird meta thing, he says. The show about the big flop show now playing where the show that its all about started. In August, Desperately Seeking the Exit returns to Scotland for its second run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.How it startedThe inspiration for Desperately Seeking Susan: The Musical came when Mr. Marino was listening to the music of Blondie one summer night in 2005. I realized that so much of their songs are about people wanting things, he says. And musicals are always about people wanting something: I want the girl, I want the house. When people sing songs in musicals, theyre singing about what they want, what they dream of. One Blondie song is even called Dreaming, he notes. I thought, somewhere theres a movie this music could be hung on. He thought of Desperately Seeking Susan, one of his favorite movies, which is set in New Jersey and the lower east side of New York City. When he realized that Deborah Harry, the lead singer for Blondie, was from Jersey and became famous performing at lower east side venues such as CBGBs and Maxs Kansas City, It just seemed to make so much sense to combine the bands music with the movie for his musical. He experimented by watching the film and lowering the sound in spots to play a Blondie song. They have a song, Heart of Glass, about a woman whose man does her wrong. The lead character, Rosanna Arquette, is Roberta Glass, and her husbands cheating on her. It seemed like a perfect match. Mr. Marino secured the rights very easily from MGM and then had lunch with Ms. Harry. She loved the idea, he says. But theater and pop music are very different things, he adds. Part of creating a brand new piece of theater is all about collaborating, and there wasnt a whole lot of collaborating going on, he says. He refuses to be more specific. Desperately Seeking the Exit playgoers will see what happened with Ms. Harry and Blondie as the process goes along, he says. I have nothing bad to say about Deborah Harry. I was very happy I got to work with her and (Blondie co-founder) Chris Stein. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It takes a long time to get a musical from an idea to the stage. Through the course of many workshops in London, It just kept getting better and better and better, he says about the production. Everybody was confident we had a big hit on our hands. And everybody was wrong. Reviews were scathing. It happens all the time, Mr. Marino knows. Theater is such a gamble, he says not only for those who create it, but for those who attend. Youre gambling when you go to the theater and invest $120 for a ticket, plus $50 for dinner, plus parking, he says. How do you know the two hours youre going to sit in the theater will change your life, or mean something, or make you laugh or make you cry Sometimes you just wonder: Whats going on? Why is this entertaining? How does this relate to me? Its a gamble for artists as well, he says, for painters, actors, playwrights and novelists. A painter gambles days, weeks and months of his or her life, working. But maybe no one will buy the painting after its done. A writer can work for years on a book, only to see it quickly sink into obscurity. The only way to win the game is to play it and be in it as often as you can, he says. If the thing that fills your soul up with happiness is creating something, then just keep doing it. Until you win. Its like the lottery.A run in TokyoAlthough Desperately Seeking Susan: The Musical got a dismal response in London, there was a silver lining: Immediately after the show closed, Mr. Marino received word that a major theater producer in Tokyo wanted to put the show on in Japan. He and two British producers were invited to the technical rehearsals. Even though Mr. Marino doesnt speak Japanese, he says, he found himself laughing at all the jokes. He could tell by the way they were delivering the lines that they were getting it right. The musical drew appreciative audiences for its entire four-month run in Tokyo. They really loved it, he says. It got good reviews and did very well. Im big in Tokyo.Writing about the flopAbout a year and a half ago, Mr. Marino started revisiting the blog notes hed written about all the twists and turns, ups and downs of Desperately Seeking Susan: The Musical. With the objectivity that time provided, he was able to look at it and say, This is a good story. And so he wrote a one-man play about how hed written a show he thought would be a success, but turned out to be a flop. Neither he nor his director, John Clancy, knew whether people would connect with Desperately Seeking the Exit. They wanted it to appeal to more than just theatergoers and rock n roll fans, but, We werent sure it would be a universal story. The biggest challenge was to turn something that was full of strife and struggling and, to some degree, tragedy, into an evening that is completely hilarious and entertaining. Like every musical, its a show about wanting something. Mr. Marino describes it as just a guys story about wanting to have a success, and the obstacles that pop up along the way and how we try to overcome those obstacles. Thats what makes it an interesting story. Not only is Desperately Seeking the Exit about the making of a musical, he adds, its about a novice American writer trying to communicate and find his voice in a foreign country that speaks the same language. He notes that Brits in the audience often nod their heads at certain points in the show, agreeing: We do do that. We thought that maybe a guy talking for an hour might not be interesting to anybody. But people would literally gasp when I delivered a piece of information; it was like they were at a 3D movie. They kept coming back to see it over and over. Its like going on a ride: Youre terrified to get on, then once youre on it, it has all these dips and turns and surprises, so you can experience it again. Mr. Marino has performed Desperately Seeking the Exit in New York City and upstate New York, and in Hollywood as well as at the fringe festival in Scotland. I always thought of it as an underthe-radar type show, he says, adding his venues include some quirky places such as the basement of a bar, the back corner of a restaurant and in front of a giant fireplace in a lodge in the Adirondaks. Its just storytelling, he says. I always think of the show as: Im sitting at the bar, and the guy next to me says, Tell me something about yourself. And then I tell him the story. To his amazement, audiences have connected in a wonderful way with Desperately Seeking the Exit. It does affect all kinds of people, he says. People leave the show feeling something, or relating to something in a theatrical, magical way. He loves watching people laugh as he reenacts his story on stage. After a show in Edinburgh, he says, a man asked him if hed ever thought of turning the play into a book, and gave him his card.

Time Stands Still poses questions worth ponderingWriters and photographers are the observers of history, of life. With images, with words, they capture whats happening, whether in the neighborhood or around the world. But its a special breed that goes into foreign countries where theres unrest, war, famine. These are the people who show us atrocities: the bombed buildings, the dead children, the mass graves. These are the people who prick our conscience. Photojournalist Sarah (Tyler Layton) and writer James (Greg Longenhagen) are part of that tribe. Time Stands Still, playing at Florida Repertory Theatres ArtStage Studio Theater, opens with the couple returning to their Brooklyn loft. Their jobs have taken a toll; she survived a roadside bombing and is scarred and wounded from shrapnel, while hes recovering from a breakdown after witnessing a group of women get blown up. Both are in a fragile state, trying to heal from physical and psychic wounds. James is overprotective, Sarah acerbic and independent. When visited by their old friend and editor Richard (William McNulty), theyre surprised by who accompanies him: Mandy (Claire K. Guy), a young woman less than half his age. Theyre obviously smitten with each other. As Richard explains to his friends: I wanted something simple for a change. (Well, congratulations, Sarah dryly responds.) And Mandy is incredibly simple. She has a fluffy job as an event planner, and doesnt even recognize that her original ideas (such as holding an event in the Egyptian room of the Metropolitan Museum of Art) arent original at all. Sarah calls her a lightweight, and Ms. Guy plays her that way: simple-minded, innocent, clueless. Shes never heard of the movie Brazil, and she doesnt get their jokes or references. Life hasnt knocked Mandy around much yet, or disappointed her. She just babbles on, saying whatever shes thinking, without any social graces or consideration for others feelings. Shes a twit, and certainly nowhere near Richards intellectual equal. But Ms. Guy does her justice by playing her genuinely, not as a stereotype. Richard protests that hes not one of those creepy middle-aged guys who prey on women half their age but he obviously is. (And Mandy is even less than half his age 30 years younger.) Hes also obviously happy. Mr. McNulty plays Richard like someone who cant believe hes just won the lottery. He beams at Mandy; she can do no wrong. As he tells his friends, he cant believe that he has a hot girlfriend. Theyre like teenagers, mooning over each other and smooching. At one point they slow dance, his aging potbelly bumping up against her pregnant one. But its an axiom that other couples relationships cause us to examine our own. Playwright Donald Margulies is a pro at this (his Pulitzer Prize-winning Dinner with Friends also deals with two couples, showing the effect ones relationship has on the others). And Richard and Mandys relationship and choices cause Sarah and James to reexamine their own. But this isnt just a play about relationships. Mr. Margulies has constructed a richly layered drama that examines so much more: personal and societal responsibility, the role of journalists covering war and their addiction to the adrenaline rush, the lure of comfort and a safe life, the struggle in media between educating and entertaining, between profit and news, and how a life-threatening event, even if not our own, can cause us to reexamine and possibly change our lives. Ms. Layton, a stage and television actress and an acting professor at Florida Gulf Coast University, plays Sarah as a prickly thing: cynical, sarcastic and argumentative. It is difficult to warm to her character because of her takeno-prisoners attitude. I wish she had displayed more inner struggle or nuance than the few glimpses were given. As her boyfriend James, Mr. Longenhagen is easy-going and genial, yet nervous and anxious when it comes to Sarah. The two are highly believable as a couple, whether theyre arguing or making up, and give us some of the plays more powerful scenes. Director Chris Clavelli has done an excellent job staging this; the interactions are so natural we feel as if were somehow eavesdropping on these two couples. Drew LeMotts set adds to that feeling. He has used the entire theater as his canvas. Wooden planks cover the floor, extending past the audience chairs; the lofts bathroom door and front door are also beyond the theater chairs. The design puts the audience in the loft itself, as invisible guests viewing the interactions between the two couples. The set and props are exactly right; weve been transported to a loft in Williamsburg. It has a lived-in feel, with books under the couch and the Sunday New York Times scattered on a salvaged wooden door transformed into a dining table/desk space. A couple of lights look as if theyve been made out of mason jars. Old cameras a Brownie, the Polaroid and a Kodak with a round flash unit attached share space on shelves with books. (The only gripe I have is that during Act I, some of the lights are at such an angle they bounce off of a glass countertop, creating a glare.) There are two large photographs on the wall, one of low-hovering helicopters and soldiers in Vietnam, and the other a print of Eddie Adams iconic 1968 image, General Nguyen Ngoc Loan Executing a Viet Cong Prisoner in Saigon. While the characters argue about the morality of photographing others suffering, and whether taking pictures of war and destruction ever changes anything, these two photos silently represent a time when stark images of war caused a nation to rise up and demand an end to the Vietnam War. If Time Stands Still sounds gloomy, its not. Its deep, not depressing, and it has plenty of humor. It provides no easy answers, but is infinitely skilled in how it poses the questions. Like a photograph that captures a moment in time, or a well-written article, it contains layers of meaning and inspires both emotion and thought.

ROUND TRIP!* AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Good news: Your skillful handling of a recent matter has won admiration from someone who could be influential in any upcoming decisions involving you. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You continue to welcome new friends into the widening circle of people whom you hold dear. One of those newcomers soon might have something special to tell you. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) It could be risky to push for a project you believe in but others are wary of. Never mind. If you trust your facts, follow your courageous Aries heart and go with it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your enthusiasm sparks renewed interest in a workplace project that once seemed headed for deletion. Support from supervisors helps you make all necessary changes. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A colleague might be a bit too contrary when your ideas are being discussed in the workplace. A demand for an explanation could produce some surprises all around. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try to avoid distractions at a time when maintaining stability in a fluid situation is essential. Therell be time enough later for the Moon Child to enjoy some well-earned fun and games. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Stop wasting energy licking your wounded pride. Instead, put the lessons you learned from that upsetting experience to good use in an upcoming opportunity. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You love being busy. But try not to make more work for yourself than you need to. Get help so that you dont wind up tackling tasks that are better left to others. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually balanced way of assessing situations could be compromised by some so-called new facts. Check them out before making any shift in judgment. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might feel angry over an unexpected shift in attitude by someone you trusted. But this could soon turn in your favor as more surprising facts come out. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Love rules everywhere for all amorous Archers, single or attached. Its also a good time to restore friendships that might have frayed over the years. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Its not always easy for the proud Goat to forgive past slights. But clearing the air could help establish a better climate for that important upcoming venture.

YesWhat a heartbreaking, beautiful love story. Were all going to die, and some of us will be lucky enough to grow old gracefully. But what happens when the gracefulness wears off? That question is at the center of the deeply beating heart of Amour, a wonderful film that depicts a genuine love rarely seen on the big screen. In France, Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are a married couple in their 80s. Enjoying life together, they are both retired music teachers, and Annes former pupil (Alexandre Tharaud) has gone on to great success. Then Anne has a stroke and everything changes. Shes paralyzed on her right side and needs a wheelchair. We dont see the stroke or any of the traumatic events that make her progressively worse, an apt decision by writer/director Michael Haneke that allows us to stay away from histrionics and focus on the love and care Georges shows for Anne. To that end, we also never see them in a hospital, with a doctor or anywhere outside their apartment except for the films opening moments. Their pain is for them, not the world, to see. Its as if Mr. Haneke wants the viewer to be a fly on the wall in the apartment, unobtrusive yet privy to the day-in, dayout difficulty thats often overlooked for the more dramatic moments in movies. This is consistent with the directors body of work: Hes brutal and relentless in showing us things we dont want to see (Funny Games), and fully capable of doing it in such a way that it resonates with profound emotion. Watching Anne slowly, steadily decline is heartbreaking. Theres a moment when she gets out of bed to get a book from a nearby nightstand, but falls and cant get back up. Another time Georges tries to give her water and she refuses to drink. When she wakes up wet, Georges, without hesitation or judgment but with only utmost love, cleans up after her like its not a big deal. And as bad as it is for her, think about how torturous it is for Georges to watch the strong woman hes loved most of his life become completely dependent on others and lose her will to live. Mr. Trintignant gives Georges a steely exterior we never see him cry, for example but we do occasionally glimpse in his face the anguish thats otherwise suppressed. Ms. Riva similarly shows emotions on her face, but for an altogether different reason: Shes often lying in bed under blankets. Her optimism that turns to contentment, then frustration and then resignation feels palpably real. Both octogenarian actors are splendid and deserve every accolade they receive. Georges and Anne do get a few visitors. The important one is their daughter Eva, who means well but doesnt understand the privacy her parents desire. How could she? She thinks Mom should be getting help, exercise, therapy to help her get better. Only Georges knows and at one point bluntly tells his daughter that Mom isnt going to get better, shes only going to get progressively worse until she slips away. How awful to hear, and even worse to have to say. If Amour doesnt inspire you to think of friends and loved ones whove gone through something similar, nothing will. Death is inevitable for us all, and one supposes theres no ideal way to die. But you cant help but fear that it might be this arduous and painful.

Five Star. 378 pages. $25.95. Its such a pleasure to settle in with a complex mystery tale by an author whose arresting characters are fully developed, whose pacing of action is superb and whose settings are not only well chosen, but also colored and shaded with a painters eye. This latest entry in the Harry Brock Mystery series has all those features. Moreover, for denizens and fans of Southwest Florida, it doesnt hurt that the setting is a mildly disguised version of Naples and its eastern transition into Everglades territory. A local big-shot lawyer has put Harry in touch with a wealthy, cantankerous fellow named Gregory Breckenridge who has a big problem: His wife, Afton, has vanished. He needs to find her, but he hasnt gone to the sheriffs office because hes afraid that any scandal will undermine his hedge fund empire. Harry asks ordinary, sensible questions about the circumstances preceding Aftons disappearance and about their relationship, but the contemptible bully is reluctant to answer them. Harry takes the case and engages experienced skip-tracer Caedmon Rivers to hunt Mrs. Breckenridge down. Caedmon is a gorgeous woman. Harry falls in love with her, and the heat is mutual if not the mutual adoration. Its a problem. Another criminal matter gets tangled up with the question of Aftons disappearance. There is strong suspicion that socialites Peter and Gwen Oglevie have been smuggling and selling stolen paintings. An employee who chanced to see something potentially incriminating is found dead soon after. The woman pastor to whom this worker had turned for advice now turns to Harry. The tangle? Gwen and Afton have been good friends. Is the art smuggling connected to Aftons disappearance? How? It soon becomes evident that searching for Mrs. Breckenridge is not healthy. Caedmon is almost killed by two professional assassins.

She is simply not the same person she was before the attack, and Harry though he tries in every way to be supportive is simply not equipped to deal with her psychic pain. Are they after Caedmon because shes close to finding Afton? Are these same people after Afton? Are the Oglevies behind it all? Is Afton even alive? If shes dead, who is manipulating her bank accounts? These questions are what Harry, now working in concert with local law enforcement and the district attorneys office, must find out. Throughout The Birds of Winter, sources of anguish and pain are balanced by sources of healing. Primary here is the wonder of the swamp-edge setting and the knowledge, owned by Harry and his good neighbor and friend Tucker, of how this environment operates and how to be a part of it. Tuckers farm is all about finding ones way to an intimate relationship with nature and the natural order. The homes of Harry and Tucker are both off the beaten track, insulated from urban life and the wounds of progress. The sections of the novel set in this mysterious, protected environment are filled with descriptions of its unique beauty and redemptive harmonies. It is also a somewhat fanciful place, where a large dog and a self-important mule seem to communicate with one another and with those humans who know them best. Harry, however, lives in two worlds, one of which reveals the worst in human nature. And that other world invades the idyllic one that he has made his home. The mystery plot(s) unfold under a masters hand; the portraiture of vivid personalities and their relationships is discerning and unusually complex; the parade of strong, intriguing and attractive women is almost overwhelming; and the homage to Southwest Floridas unique landscape is inspiring. Kinley Roby, who is rumored to be planning a return to Naples, has another winner. 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.

They also like toys that move and make noise, so for centuries toymakers have created transportation toys. There are very old toys shaped like chariots, stagecoaches and canoes. But by the late 1800s and early 1900s, new developments like trains, cars, buses, motorcycles and bikes, as well as airplanes, balloons, blimps, helicopters and imaginary flying saucers and spaceships, became favorites. Gunthermann was a German company that manufactured toys from 1877 to 1965. It made many of the toy vehicles wanted by todays collectors. In September 2012, a tin doubledecker toy bus made in the 1930s a copy of a full-size bus of the day sold at a Bertoia auction in New Jersey. It has an ad for Fords Automobile on the top, a street name, High Street, on the front, and General, the name of the bus company, on the sides and front. The orange and red combination of colors may be a bit imaginative, but the bus has realistic parts, a rear stairwell, upper-deck bench seating and a driver. It moves by a wind-up clockwork mechanism. The 9-inch toy, part of a well-known collection, sold for $2,006. Q: My plastic-and-metal Mickey Mouse tea set is in its original box and has never been opened. It has four plates, four cups and saucers, four sets of flatware and a teapot. The box is labeled Wolverine Toys, Division of Spang Inc., Walt Disney Product. I paid $50 for the set a few years ago at a Midwestern antiques shop. What is the set worth today? A: Your Disneyana tea set was made after 1968, the year Wolverine Toy Co. of Pittsburgh was purchased by Spang Industries of Butler, Pa. The company moved operations to Arkansas in 1971. Disney tea sets, even plastic ones made in the 1970s, are wanted by collectors. Yours could sell today for $100 to $150. Q: Many years ago, I was given a battery-operated toy monkey holding a cymbal in each hand. When its turned on, the monkey claps the cymbals together, and when its tapped on the head, it stops clapping and makes a squealing noise. Then it goes back to clapping the cymbals again. Its about 10 inches high. How old is it and is it worth anything? A: Your cymbal-playing monkey was made in Japan from the 1950s into the 0s by a company named C-K. The toy is called Musical Jolly Chimp. It was a popular toy and similar versions were made by other companies. The cymbalKOVELS: ANTIQUES m w M a p terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com

Waterfront Dining at its Best COURTESY PHOTO Double-decker buses are still used, but this tin toy bus was made in the 1930s and looks old-fashioned. The 9-inch German toy auctioned for $2,006 at Bertoia Auctions in Vineland, N.J. playing monkey even appeared in the movie Toy Story 3. The value of your toy is $150 to $300, depending on its condition. The original box adds value. Q: I just read your column about vintage slot machines. I own a similar countertop machine thats still in its original box. The silver-colored metal nameplate on the front of the blue machine states its an Atom Ball Gum Vendor. Embossed on the top are the words, Win a carton, 10 packs of cigarettes, line up 3 of a kind. If you insert a dime, the three small windows on the top show spinning images of cigarette brands. If the three line up with the same brand, a customer won a box of cigarettes. If they didnt line up, all you got was a gumball. My dad placed machines like this in bars and nightclubs in Iowa. The machines were bolted to countertops, and every so often I would go with him to refill the gumballs and remove the dimes. When the gambling machines were outlawed, he had to get rid of them so he dumped them in the river. But I hid this one in the attic. What is it worth? A: Your trade stimulator was made in 1949 by Groetchen Tool & Manufacturing Co. of Chicago. Its exactly like the companys Imp machine, introduced in 1940. But the dawn of the atomic age after World War II meant that a lot of things were renamed Atom or Atomic. Trade stimulators, which made money for shop owners, were banned in many states even before the federal ban in 1951. But vintage machines can be legally bought and sold in many states now. Just be sure to check your own states laws before you sell. Your Atom machine is valued at about $165. But with the original box, it could sell for much more.Tip: Andirons get tarnished and covered with resin from smoke, so they should be regularly cleaned with liquid metal polish and 0000-grade steel wool.

In the case of declarer, an abundance of winners in either his own hand or dummy is worthless if there is no way of reaching them. The defenders might likewise be faced with this difficulty. Either defender might have tricks that cannot be utilized because there is no entry card in the hand that holds the good tricks. The defenders sometimes can solve this problem if they use their resources expeditiously. Here is such a case. Let's first assume that West leads a heart in response to East's overcall, and that East covers dummy's queen with the king, which South ducks. As a result of this communications-breaking play by declarer, he makes the contract. If East continues the suit, South finesses the ten and leads a club. No matter when or how the defenders take their A-K of clubs, East's hearts wind up withering on the vine, and South eventually scores three club tricks to make the contract. Note that if declarer slips by winning the opening heart lead, he goes down. Whenever he leads a club, West wins with the king and returns a heart to East's jack, and East leads a third heart to establish his suit. East still has the club ace as an entry, and South goes down two. Note also, though, that East can defeat the contract if he plays the seven of hearts on the opening lead! By allowing declarer to win the first trick with the queen, he maintains a heart contact with West that prevents South from scoring more than seven tricks. Thus, if declarer plays a club at trick two, West takes his king and returns a heart to East's K-J. The race for the establishment of tricks is won by the defense, and South winds up taking second money.

Ms. Madigan has the entire year booked with more than 100 theater gigs across the country and numerous television appearances. Shes recently back from her second Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staffs USO Holiday Tour of Iraq and Afghanistan. Late Nite Catechism 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10 Catechism classes are never as much fun or as hilarious as when they are led by Sister in the international hit comedy Late Nite Catechism by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan. Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of students (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the students for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school, with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm. Brian Regan 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14 Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, he fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations.

It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, that continues to grow Mr. Regans fan base.

Winner of seven Grammy Awards and more than two dozen Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, Bill Gaither has guided the course of gospel music history through songs he has written and his iconic influence among fellow artists. Les Miserables 7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday, March 12-17 The New York Times calls this Les Misrables an unquestionably spectacular production from start to finish. The Times of London hails the new show a five star hit, astonishingly powerful and as good as the original. The StarLedger says a dynamically re-imagined hit.

Pat Benatar with Neil Giraldo 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 26 Ms. Benatar remains a bold and distinctive artist both on stage and on record. Her songs such as Love is a Battlefield, Hit Me with Your Best Shot, Heartbreaker and We Belong are as memorable now as they were at the dawn of MTV, when Ms. Benatar forging a path for female rock stars around the world.

Its a fun way to present history, particularly of our community, Mary Margaret Gruszka, volunteer coordinator for Collier County Museums, says about the part-improv, part-scripted performance. Historically Speaking, which has its home base with Collier County Museums, is an outgrowth of what was to be a one-time reenactment play called Killing Mr. Watson, which Ms. Gruszak produced in 2011 for the 100th anniversary of the death of infamous Everglades City resident Ed Watson. The performance in Everglades City was so well received that the actors were asked to do a repeat performance to Naples. The ad-hoc group formed a theater company and also staged Night at the Depot that year. Membership in the company fluctuates depending on the production, but the core group consists of half a dozen people from high school to retirement age. They recently performed a historical skit at Viva 500, the local DAR chapter celebration of the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leon landing in Florida.DEPOTFrom page 1LAURA TICHY-SMITH / COURTESY PHOTOJo Ann Kravitz and Barry Nicholls as s tourists at Night at the Depot.

We came to Florida for a vacation, but its been signs for real estate, real estate, real estate ever since we crossed the state line, Mr. Johnson says. Now were thinking about retiring here. Richard Joyce portrays Sam the Swampland Salesman, the kind of real estate agent the Johnsons and so many others just like them were unlucky enough to encounter on their maiden visit to Southwest Florida. A member of the local Shakespeare in Paradise troupe, Mr. Joyce is basing his character on research about the high-pressure sales tactics from the era when developers flew people in private planes to see properties from the air. He enjoys the element of ad-libbing that Night at the Depot allows. With improv, you have to think on your feet and feel your way through, he says. The impossible is possible if presented believably. He has two rules for improvisational comedy, he says: One, be a serious person in a ridiculous situation; or two, be a ridiculous person in a serious situation.By Boat Before there were planes, trains and automobiles, the only way in or out of Naples was by boat. This mode served indigenous peoples and the cracker pioneers alike. As he did in 2011, Dennis McDaniel, who handcrafts cast nets, will enliven the museums mullet skiff exhibit for Night at the Depot by showing visitors the art of throwing fishing nets. A seventh-generation native of Southwest Florida, hell point to the photos of mullet anglers behind the skiff display and say many of the people in the pictures are his kin. This might be a wall of shame, he told his audience two years ago. At the dugout canoe exhibit, Chris Kimbell, a ranger from Collier-Seminole State Park, will portray a Native American from the 1800s Seminole Wars period. Hes been doing living history and Seminole reenacting for 27 years, researching and making his own clothing, including leather and beadwork. Because Night at the Depot reenacts a timeline instead of a time period, it requires quality interpreters who know what theyre talking about and have done the research, Mr. Kimbell says. It makes it a good event when you tie history in locally.By TrainAlthough the iron horse arrived in Southwest Florida in 1886 to service the phosphate mining industry in Punta Gorda, it would be four decades before the Orange Blossom Special would steam down newly laid track into The Naples Depot on Jan. 7, 1927. Jim Evans will reprise his role as the stationmaster, drawing the audience into the historic days excitement as he describes the list of dignitaries, including thenFlorida Gov. James Martin, as if they are about to arrive. By MechanicAt the Franks Garage exhibit, depicting the early days of the Tamiami Trail, when Model Ts broke down more than they chugged along, FGCU student and museum volunteer Jared Zipper will don bib overalls to portray mechanic Ed Frank, famed inventor of a local institution, the World Famous Swamp Buggy Races. He believes historical museums and interpretive events such as Night at the Depot are critical to help people and communities thrive. When you move to a city, you just live there if you dont know the history, he says. If you dont know its past, you cant understand its present or know its future.

The vastly remodeled Vincenzos on the Bay has a Caribbean atmosphere and menu to match. Chef Jon Venuto gives calamari a fresh taste by pairing it with a light and refreshing lemon-garlicbanana pepper sauce. Hot voodoo wings were perfectly cooked and crisp with a tongue-tingling sauce. Either dish would be enough to share. Both the (grilled) scallop basket with fries, cole slaw and citrus remoulade, and the mambo mahi tacos with cilantro salsa and Key lime aioli were terrific. The meal ended with a fittingly tropical dessert of coconut sorbet with strawberry-mango salsa, served in a coconut shell. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2011Gordons on the River, 475 North Road, Naples; 213-1441Social dining clubs which offer amenities such as themed dinners, wine tastings and special access to facilities are few and far between these days. The novelty alone makes the Naples Harbour Yacht Club worth checking out. Gordons is the upstairs and upscale neighbor to the clubs more casual Jacks River Bar, serving aged steaks, fresh seafood and fine wines. Both the food and the hospitality were noteworthy, but the level of attention we received might have been colored by the fact that we had the dining room completely to ourselves. All the better to take advantage of the sommeliers services Gordons boasts an impressive wine list. Both 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 you even if youve already had your 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 2012Michelbobs Champion Ribs, 371 Airport Pulling Road, Naples; 643-7427Michelbobs signature spice rub enhances its slow-smoked Danish baby backs, a mustard and paprika blend presented in shakers on every table. There are also two bottled sauces to slather on the meaty bones one tangy with mustard (complex and well balanced) and one smoky-sweet (tasting heavily of Liquid Smoke). All of which is enough to satisfy anyone with a serious hankering for good ribs. If its smoked pork shoulder or chicken youre after, however, you might be less impressed. When all was said and done, and all saucy fingers were licked clean, the baby backs truly stood out from the rest of the meal. The flesh was tender enough to slip off easily and had those crispy edges that just add a little extra texture to the experience. Among the side dishes, the smokysweet baked beans studded with chunks of pork were a real standout. Full bar. Food:Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2012Tarpon Bay, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa, 5001 Coconut Road, Bonita Springs; 444-1234: For a casual seafood bistro, it would be hard to beat Tarpon Bay with hits ceviche bar, several varieties of raw oysters and lots of fresh fish options. Wine devotees will find plenty from which to choose as well. Dishes are attractively plated and served by a well-informed staff. We loved the sampler platter of eight varieties of ceviche (choose from one, two, three or eight types), particularly the Peruvian, a mix of scallops and mahi in a spicy marinade, and the shrimp with roasted corn, tequila, coriander, cumin and cayenne. Grilled red snapper paired well with both the young soy white miso sauce and a slightly sweet ponzu sauce, but a spicy tropical salsa was a little overpowering. A lobster pot featured clams, mussels, lobster tail, fingerling potatoes, corn and roasted tomato. We added seafood sausage, which was delicious. For dessert: a flight of house-made ice creams. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2012Tierneys Tavern, 799 Walkerbilt Road, Naples; 591-3837Owners of The Bay House converted the expansive bar into a restaurant in late 2011. 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 such as Charleston crab dip, pimento cheese and house-made pickles. Although the shrimp and grits lacked spunk, even with horseradish cream and diced andouille sausage, 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.

Persian Bistro now commands attention with its grand new space at Ninth Street South and Fifth Avenue South. Executive chef/owner Michael Mirs food has always been lush and seductive, and his move from the Pavilion to the fashionable downtown restaurant district has given him the opportunity to create an ambience that befits the feasts served within. The dining room contains plush blue banquettes, wall hangings that resemble the undulating Moroccan sands and a palette of plum and earth tones that mirror the hues of the eggplant, lamb and dried fruits contained in the Persian fare served there. Theres also a spacious outdoor area for al fresco dining and people watching. Those who have visited Mr. Mirs previous location are likely to be delighted with the new digs, although perhaps less pleased with the parking situation since the new place has no parking lot. Oh, and theres full liquor service and a spiffy bar thats accessible from within and without. What wont be a surprise is that the menu remains an intriguing blend of traditional Persian dishes and contemporary options that contain many of the sweet and savory ingredients for which the cuisine is known: feta and chickpeas; nuts, pomegranates and dried fruits; fresh herbs such as parsley and mint; saffron and cinnamon; tender lamb and housemade yogurt. A lemongrass saffron martini starts the meal out nicely, the drinks tasting deceptively like lemonade but not quite as sweet. Theres a respectable wine list as well, but on this night we devoted ourselves to those delicious martinis. The most difficult part of dining at bha! bha! is deciding what to order. Mango garlic shrimp or pistachio lamb meatballs on butternut squash with mint infused pomegranate pinot noir reduction? Mixed grill kabob or plum lamb? Pomegranate lacquered salmon or duck on a bed of pomegranate and walnut sauce? Do you see the problem here? After much deliberation, we started with spicy mussels ($14) and kashke bademjune ($11), an eggplant dish. The mussels were perfectly steamed, tender and well seasoned with a subtle but zesty bite. The bademjune consisted of three long strips of eggplant that were flash fried, drizzled with Persian whey and herbs then accessorized with olives, feta and crunchy scallions. The exterior was lightly charred and crisp while the interior was smooth and creamy, enhanced by the flavors and textures of all the accompaniments. We unashamedly mopped up all of the sauce with pita wedges. One of the nightly specials was an 18-ounce lamb shank ($36), which won out over the plum lamb on the menu because, as our server rightly pointed out, the plum lamb will still be there the next time but the lamb shank may not. (Note: From previous experience, I can highly recommend the plum lamb with its tender cubes of meat napped in tomato pomegranate sauce and studded with sundried plums.) The nightly special came still on the bone in a steaming bowl accompanied by eggplant, potatoes, tomatoes and onions with a delicate sauce. The meat fell off the bone with just a touch of the fork and was as flavorful as it was tender. If you are a chicken fan and want to see this often ho-hum protein transformed into something worthy of celebration, try the spicy apricot chicken ($24). Chunks of grilled chicken are dressed with a sweet-spicy sauce containing dried wild currants and apricot chutney, red bell peppers and tomatoes. A mound of rice does a good job of absorbing some of that sauce. Try not to skip dessert here, as they are made in house and are as good as the savory dishes. Among my favorites is the jewel cake ($8), a spongy concoction studded with tender bits of fruit accompanied by cinnamon ice cream and a drizzle of fruity sauce. The almond custard ($8), creamy and chock full of almost flavor, was also delicious. Despite the fact that it was a Saturday night and the place was full, service was consistently good. Our server never left us in the lurch, nor did she stop by too often. Courses were expertly timed, giving us just the right amount of time to relax and talk in between. Mr. Mir, who can weave a tale as aptly as he conjures up food from his homeland, can often be seen making the rounds of tables, greeting guests and keeping an eagle eye on the proceedings in his bustling establishment. bha! bha! always had great food and an exotic appeal. Its finally found a location thats as delicious as whats on the menu. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com KAREN FELDMAN / COURTESY PHOTOSDried fruits and apricot chutney dress up this chicken entree.
