INSIDE The Eagle effectScouts team up for a project at Naples Municipal Airport. A12 LYNN EDWARD IS A VETERAN IN EVERY SENSE of life with its ups and downs, of public education with its political, economic and social minefields, and of hope. Hope, in particular. Her hope her public-school faith, perhaps lies in the notion that she and her colleagues can provide a learning environment for children ages 4-18 that will gladden and even inspire many of them, while protecting all of them. Students need to be available to learn, Mrs. Edwards, a former Golden Apple teacher who is principal of The Alva School, a public K-8 school in east Lee County, says. But because so many things can detour young learners, she adds, educators must remember Maslows Hierarchy of Needs. No. 1 on Maslows scale is meeting physical needs. No. 2 is safety and security. Students have to feel safe and secure students have a right to feel safe and secure, Mrs. Edward insists. What constitutes an appropriate level of safety and security in the public schools of Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties, and who pays for it, is a matter of philosophic and sometimes contentious debate.

Hurd patrols Trafalgar Middle School in Cape Coral. We can spend all the money we want on doors and windows and alarms and fences, but none of that (can match) boots on the ground or trained people in the schools. E. Hurd, Lee County school resource officer As The Naples Players 60th anniversary approached last year, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to organize and digitize a treasure trove of photos, articles, awards and other artifacts collected through the years. The effort began in May 2012 with a group of dedicated volunteers librarians and historians within the theater community who could see things for their historical value and determine what warranted saving and what did not. We put this project on the back burner for a long time, and started it as a summer project, says Becky Troop, producer of the archiving project and director of volunteer services for TNP. We had no idea what we were getting into. We thought three months would be plenty of time to get this finished. As the scanning and filing began, this core group of volunteers estimated that the project would be completed by the fall of 2012. When boxes and keepsakes began appearing out of what seemed like thin air, however, they realized their task would take longer than initially anticipated. We had people bringing in scrapbooks, boxes of photos and old playbills, Ms. Troop says. We had an enormous amount of material. Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, a career librarian who led the organizational aspects of the project, suggested it would make the most sense to organize everything chronologically. With that decision agreed upon, she dug in.

PAGE 2 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 The ascending nationIts not our Navy, Army or Air Force. Its not this religion or that one, this language or another, this book or a different book that touches all of us. Its not a single defining anthem or pledge, a proclivity to adventurism, or even a momentous historic event the 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence, say, or the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that tie Americans together as surely as mountain climbers working the same rope to some remote summit. Its not even a single geographic location. Instead, its our teachers. They touch every American child, which is part of the reason we become Americans temperamentally, not just legally.About 55 million children are now enrolled in K through 12 schools across the 50 states. More than 49 million of them are public school students, including almost 2.7 million in the Sunshine State. They spend the majority of their days in the care of teachers who will literally mold the future of the United States. Teachers do that with the help of parents, of course or without much help from parents. Some parents pull disappearing acts that can rival a magicians. They drop their children at the door of a kindergarten class on the first day of school in August and come back to retrieve them six years later, on the last day of school in May, when their children finish the fifth grade. Thats not an exaggeration. I just spent six years watching my youngest son move through elementary school (which, by the way, not only invites but begs parents and others to participate in all the fun), and that level of parental participation is literal, in some cases. Responsibility is a heavy backpack, and it makes me anxious that teachers must shoulder so much of it. But Im not anxious because of the teachers. As a species, as a single great fraternity, teachers are up to the task.Im anxious because if we Americans are mountain climbers of some sort if were the ascending nation, to use a highaim metaphor then we are also blind mountain climbers, like Erik Weihenmayer.Mr. Weihenmayer has an excuse, however. We dont. In his case, he lost his sight at 13 to a disease we dont have, retinoschisis, and went on to ascend Mt. Everest, along with the highest peaks on each of the worlds continents. Without seeing, he understands vividly what it takes to climb the mountain. As a nation we have perfectly good eyes, yet we continue to ignore what its going to take to climb that mountain perhaps because we dont understand it (thats the charitable view, which ignores greed and narcissism). The solution is already part of our gear bag, like a climbers carabiner that will clip to the rope. Its going to take an unprecedented championing of teachers for which weve demonstrated little appetite, so far. As Americans, we do have an appetite for complaining about our problems, however. And thats a good thing. Its a form of participation, like voting. Then we get tired of complaining and fall back on one of our favorite mantras: Were not perfect, but were still the greatest nation on earth. That mantra is not good enough, though. In public schools, teacher-student ratios are not good enough, either, for a very simple reason: We dont want to pay to fix them. Its not that we couldnt, its that we wont. But if we did if we suddenly decided to wage a war on mediocrity if, community by community, we determined that creating student-teacher ratios of 10 to 1 or even 5 to 1 in each public school was worth the cost (instead of more than 20 to 1, which has been the case in my sons classrooms), we would change American society in a single generation. We could reduce the immense cost of jails and health care for addictions right off the bat, while powering-up American inventiveness and creativity. Children respond to attention like flowers to sun and water. It would take three steps: Step I: Double the pay for teachers, whose median salary in Florida now is about $45,700 per year, roughly the same as that of long-haul truck drivers. Step II: Double or triple the number of teachers, so that each works closely with a few students each year. Step III: Supply, supply, supply. Provide ample schools and generous materials. Youd be right to call that a utopian solution. But unlike other utopian solutions, this is a possible solution. This is a matter of will, not resources. I make that judgment based on our history: Whenever weve needed to pay for something essential, we have. The obvious example is World War II. Coming out of the Great Depression, we spent $341 billion between 1941 and 1945, the equivalent of $3.6 trillion today. The subsequent costs may have been even greater. By comparison, to date weve spent about $2 trillion on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to Harvards Kennedy School of Government. But that figure is likely to rise to about $6 trillion. Caring for those who fought these wars less than 1 percent of us will cost us dearly for decades to come. Meanwhile, we spend about $10,600 per student each year in American public schools, according to the Department of Education about $519.4 billion. A billion, as you know, has to be multiplied 1,000 times before it equals a trillion, which is what we spend, in multiples, on our wars. So why not spend those multiples on our future? Teachers, after all, are the lead climbers in our trek to that still undiscovered country. Lets give them all the rope they need to reach the summit, and raise the flag of our trusting children.

PAGE 4 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe medias Tea Party momentRarely has the White House briefing room so resembled the main ballroom at a meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference.After news broke of a sweeping Justice Department subpoena of The Associated Press telephone records, White House press secretary Jay Carney didnt so much have to deal with querulous reporters pressing him on all fronts. He had to deal with citizens bristling with anger over perceived encroachments on their rights by an overweening government.The reaction to the seizure of records on 20 office and personal lines of AP staff is another reminder, if we needed one, that what the press cares about most is itself.The New York Times sniffed at the Internal Revenue Service scandal. It didnt even put the initial story on the front page. But the paper rebuked the Obama administration for the AP subpoena in an editorial titled Spying on The Associated Press: The administration has a chilling zeal for investigating leaks and is trying to frighten off whistleblowers. It sounds like the Times should go back and read President Barack Obamas recent commencement address at Ohio State University, where he lamented that the students have been hearing warnings that government is nothing more than some separate, sinister entity and that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. Yes, why cant all the journalists hyped up about the AP subpoena simply put more trust in the good intentions of their own government? Appealing for calm, Carney said the president believes in an unfettered ability to pursue investigative journalism, but that there should be balance. The implicit reaction of journalists was: Balance? Dont give us any stinkin balance. Give us our rights. In this, the reporters exhibited a healthy impulse toward vigilance about liberty. The phrase chilling effect has been bandied about often. A chill comes not necessarily from what government is doing to you, but from what it might do to you. On top of everything else, it is the principle of the thing an infringement, or even a potential infringement, on the constitutional rights of even a handful of reporters is an affront to all. There are lots of people who share this way of thinking about rights and government. Some of them gather every year at places like CPAC and the National Rifle Association annual convention. Scorn was heaped on the NRA for opposing new gun rules out of the very same logic that compels reporters to react so strongly against the AP subpoena. The NRA will not abide an infringement of anyones legitimate right to bear arms, and it fears what could come of enhanced state power. Like the reporters, it casts a jaundiced eye on the reassurances of government. What they are to the First Amendment, it is to the Second. Journalists should learn from this moment. Maybe they should stop rolling their eyes when the likes of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz talk of the Constitution. Maybe they should credit the skepticism about government of the tea party, which was right in its early complaints about the IRS. Maybe, after nearly five years, they should invest the phrase adversarial press with true meaning. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

The letter was a public relations piece intended to justify recent changes, including the organizations name, and included several inaccurate and misleading claims. I feel obligated to set the record straight. I was dismayed to see that the chairman, joined by some members of the board, stated declining audiences and lower endowment returns combined to result in annual operating losses of $23,000,000 over the past 10 years. This claim is completely false and unsupported by the financial facts. It causes one to wonder if the motivation for its publication was to create a concern that the Phil was or is on the verge of financial failure and that this is a justification for additional changes. Indeed, if the claim were true, the organization would have filed bankruptcy many years ago. The author was talking about a 10-year period, so giving him the benefit of the doubt and assuming he meant $23 million over 10 years rather than annually, the statement is still very wrong. Tax returns for the organization for the past 10 years are easily available online to anyone who wants to do some checking. In fact, the cumulative increase in net assets during the past decade was $39,312,369, of which $9,418,107 was in unrestricted net assets. The chairmans letter portends financial stress and a failure to balance the budget as a call for change. In fact, as the accurate financial statistics show, the organization had a surplus for seven of the 10 years cited. I have, with professional assistance, examined the tax returns for the fiscal years ending June 30, 2001, through June 30, 2011. During my tenure as founder, chairman and CEO, the record demonstrates that total assets of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts increased from $79,404,737 to $121,892,723 a net increase of $42,487,986. During the same period, total liabilities increased only $3,175,617. Therefore, the organizations net assets, more commonly known as net worth, increased by $39,312,369. The art collection increased from a value of $9,599,698 to $26,749,098 an increase of $17,149,400. Investments in marketable securities, most of which constitute the endowment, increased from $17,384,623 to $46,036,821 a total of $28,652,198, including during the time of the 2008 market crash, which the chairmans letter alleges dramatically lowered endowment returns. It does not mention that the temporary losses suffered during the depressed economy were not only made up but have in fact increased. By a letter dated May 14, the new CEO included in her cover letter to all patrons a copy of the chairmans guest column that shares some information about our recent past as well as where we are headed, and in so doing, republished and widely distributed the inaccurate claim of an annual loss of $23 million to numerous friends of the Phil. Philanthropy is a significant factor in why the Phil stays in business. The Phil has been an exemplary model for most nonprofit art institutions that survived the economic downturn that wiped away entire industries. The endowment, which lost more than 25 percent of its value when the stock market fell off the cliff, has rebounded and is now back above its 2008 levels. During the fiscal year ending June 2009, the Phil lost a little more than $2.6 million, a drastic reversal from years of high-flying ticket sales, corporate and private largesse. The year before, thanks in part to more than $17 million in donations, the center was nearly $9.3 million in the black and able to add significantly to its sizable endowment. During hard times, the Phil eliminated only a handful of part-time positions. The Phil was never in jeopardy during my tenure and it should not be now. I am dismayed and disappointed by the publication of these inaccurate assertions by the chairman and the apparent lack of understanding by members of the board. I can only assume they did not check the facts and did not read the draft guest commentary carefully. In trying to justify a name change that the public does not appear to be embracing, the people who made this decision are spreading false and misleading information. I am writing out of an interest in the truth and out of a sense of duty to all of the people who built and supported the Phil over the years. Daniels


Todd Gates believes that every morning when we wake up, as long as we have our health, we have three choices to make: We can jump out of bed and make something happen. We can drag ourselves out of bed and wait for something to happen. Or we can stay in bed and have no idea what happened. Todd opts for No. 1, every day. He and his partners have built one of the largest commercial construction businesses on the Paradise Coast. In March, the GATES company was awarded the $242-million plan to build the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida in a joint venture with the Swedish firm Skanska. Todd started as a construction laborer right out of high school in Hopewell, Va. He and his high-school sweetheart and bride, Angela, moved in January 1984 to the Paradise Coast, where he had vacationed as a child. They rented a duplex off U.S. 41 with just three months worth of savings. Todd recalls that their home was so sparsely furnished that they couldnt host his in-laws for a visit until one evening when Angela had taken the car to work and Todd rode his bicycle to a nearby Rhodes Furniture store and got $700 of credit to buy a couch, some chairs and a bed. Ironically, exactly 20 years later, his construction company was tearing down the building that housed the furniture store to make way for an Alvins Island beach store. The GATES firm had revenues of $150 million that year, and Todd had aspirations to hit a much higher mark. Growing up in a small industrial town, Todd became disenfranchised with assembly lines, factory jobs and the culture of labor unions. I saw first-hand how unions can destroy the free market, the companies they impact and, more importantly, the very people they represent, he says. My passion was to do something different and be more of an entrepreneur. I wanted to be able to control my own destiny. When he started his first job in construction, he had very little experience and education. He figured that starting at the bottom and working his way up would be his most efficient path to the top. His first mentor in the industry was Hank Krehling of Krehling Industries, who taught him that the important part of any business or goal is simply to never give up, no matter what. In his free time, he enjoys mixed martial arts, boating, fishing and weight training. My alarm goes off every morning at 4:30 and Im at the gym by 5 a.m., he says. Hes at his first business appointment by 7:30 a.m. About todays economic challenges, he g c c t s b bobHARDEN e-mail: PROFILES IN PARADISEBuilders strength, determination, hustle are his gates to success Talking points with Todd GatesSomething your mother was right about: Always be honest, no matter what. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A professional athlete. What would you be doing if you werent doing this? Id either be a shing guide or a personal trainer. One thing on your bucket list: Climb Mount Everest. Guilty pleasure: Expensive red wine. Next vacation destination: Italy Something people might be surprised to nd out about you: I have a black belt in street combat martial arts (mushin do karate). Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I could sing and play a musical instrument. Advice for your children: Follow your passion and never, ever give up. Best thing about kids: They make you human and humble, and they help you put your life priorities in order. What makes you laugh? Children and animals. Pet peeve: Complacency. What are you most proud of? My wife and daughters. What the Paradise Coast really needs: Balanced and diversi ed economic engines. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: The quality of life we enjoy. reflects: Being in the attack mode physically, mentally and spiritually on a daily basis is the way I have been able to survive, especially in the recent economic downturn. Having a strong mind, body and spirit is critical. He and his partners formed a successful business in Panama while the building industry was dormant in Florida. Todd and Angela have two daughters. Courtney became the first person in Todds immediate family to finish college when she graduated from Florida State University. Now married and working as a teacher, she is pursuing a masters in education. Brittany graduated from FSU this year and has been accepted at the School of Medicine at Northeastern University in Boston. Her goal is to become the first doctor in the family. Clearly, Todds make-things-happen approach to life has been passed along.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 Cameras and fences are one thing. Bulletproof windows, an idea proposed by a state representative and roundly seen as exorbitant in the extreme, are another. But even measures such as those might not provide the high-value security of boots on the ground police officers or sheriffs deputies trained as School Resource Officers who can respond to anything: custody fights over children unfolding on campus, violent student or gang conflicts, pleas for help describing abuse at home, and myriad other problems. We can spend all the money we want on doors and windows and alarms and fences, but none of that (can match) boots on the ground or trained people in the schools, argues E. Hurd, a Lee County deputy sheriff who spent five years on patrol before becoming an SRO in 2011 at Trafalgar Middle School in Cape Coral. Neither teachers nor administrators who have watched SROs work their campuses disagree with him. The effect is beneficial as well as reassuring, to everybody. But is it worth it? School districts here have reacted to the Sandy Hook massacre the shooting of 26 people in a Newtown, Conn., elementary school 11 days before Christmas by scrambling in the face of budget cuts to create much more secure schools for the 2013-14 academic year. Sandy Hook is the latest in a series of horrific events going back (14 years) to Columbine, says Doug Whittaker, schools superintendent in Charlotte County. I have to make the assumption that (a Sandy Hook) could happen here, and then ask, What can we do within reason thats always the route, within reason to make our campuses as safe as they can be? he says. That has long been the question, but Sandy Hook hastened at least a partial answer in the eyes of educators and authorities. The answer includes fences around every school campus, single points of entry, locked doors at all times and a variety of cameras inside and out. Starting now. In Collier County, where Superintendent Kamela Patton arrived from MiamiDade two years ago, school security is atypical. Not only does each school have a number of cameras, school buses are also equipped with cameras whose images can be viewed instantly in a distant command room. Because 22,000 of the districts 45,000 students rely on buses, that helps protect many. As for fences creating single-point access to Collier schools, many have been in place since not long after the Columbine tragedy in 1999, Ms. Patton says. In Charlotte, the district has spent about $3.5 million for 30 cameras since 2006, and $1.7 million for security fencing in schools and ancillary facilities built before Hurricane Charley in 2004, Mr. Whittaker says. Schools rebuilt after the storm are much more defensible from a security standpoint. And in Lee, Sandy Hook made it more urgent for us to ramp up those efforts, says outgoing Superintendent James Burke. The district repaired surveillance cameras and purchased replacement ones, and focused on creating single points of entry. That all happened quickly, Mr. Burke says. We also started doing more (lockdown) drills, and this summer were doing a training program for our district security personnel. But placing the minimum level of SROs in Lee County schools would cost the district $1.5 million, he adds. That would put one SRO in every elementary school, two in every middle and three in every high school.The heart of the matterThe question of funding for SROs remains at the heart of the debate about money versus caring in Lee and Charlotte, where middle and high schools are fully staffed with SROs, but elementary schools share a few officers who rove from school to school. Its a different situation in Collier, where Ms. Patton says the ratio of Youth Relations Bureau Deputies (Colliers term for SROs) is almost one-to-one in elementary schools (there are 29) and the sheriff is seeking a three-year federal grant that would pay for another four, to close the gaps. And in middle and high schools there is at least one deputy on every campus. This is so different from MiamiDade, and so refreshing, Ms. Patton says. There, there were 200 elementary schools and none had SROs. Its also significantly different than in Lee and Charlotte counties. In Charlotte, three SROs are assigned to cover 10 elementary schools. In Lee, 10 SROs cover the 45 elementary schools that will open their doors come August. The biggest issue, absolutely the only issue is going to be the funding, says Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott. Its a 50-50 split with the (school) district, which has committed for funding for half. With a green light from (county) commissioners, I can put human resources in motion, recruit, get some people moved and in training, and by the time the bell rings in August, we can have half the staff, Sheriff Scott says. And we can have it all by Christmas. The cost to include a single SRO in the safety strategy for every elementary school is significantly higher than the cost of cameras and fences, of course roughly $100,000 per man or woman, which includes training, equipment and vehicles, notes Mr. Whittaker in Charlotte County. In rough terms, that means that the cost to taxpayers of post-Sandy Hook law enforcement protection offering three officers per high school, two per middle and one per elementary in Lee County alone with its 45 elementary, 17 middle, 13 high school, four K-8 schools and three high-tech or community schools would equal more than $13.1 million per year. That estimate does not take into account supervisors or the placement of SROs in 24 charter schools. And it amounts to about 1 percent of the districts $1.3 billion annual budget. But cost should be irrelevant because lives could be on the line, says Patrick Hayhurst, Lee Schools director of security and a part-time sheriffs deputy. Every school should have a designated SRO, he argues. In Collier, thats not a problem since the sheriff picks up the tab for Youth Relations Bureau Deputies about $7.2 million, says Ms. Patton and the school district covers the rest, including fences and cameras. But in Lee, Mr. Hayhurst explains, It has to be approved by our school board, and Sheriff Scott has to (convince) the county commissioners, who have to increase the sheriffs budget. To those who say thats too much, Mr. Hayhurst asks, How do you put a price on a life? If they have to dip into the reserves, they should. In Charlotte, Mr. Whittaker estimates that staffing 10 elementary schools with SROs and a unit leader is a $1.1 million prospect. Charlotte County Schools would pay about a third of that, and the sheriff the other two-thirds. But the moneys not there at the moment, and no one has asked Charlotte commissioners to boost the sheriffs budget, as has happened in Lee County, where Sheriff Scott says he would require 52 deputies to staff 45 elementary schools with the appropriate strategic and logistical command. At more than $5 million a year thats a significant amount of change, no matter who pays it. Lee County commissioners think its too much. They said no when Sheriff Scotts spokesmen told them last week that if they would ante up several million to match money from the school district in a 50-50 split, he could secure an almost $1.9 million federal grant to help pay for SROs. The Lee County Commission unanimously chose not to agree to apply for a federal grant to provide initial funding for SROs in elementary schools, explains Commissioner John Manning. This decision was difficult but was fiscally prudent. The outlying costs would have been a challenge.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 NEWS A9 school board wishes to provide elementary school SROs, they should work with our legislative delegation to assist in funding the positions. Right now, the commission funds 50 percent of high school and middle school SROs, and we will continue to do so. The state legislative delegation could look for state funding, the commissioners argument goes. Unfortunately, the only state program providing money for safe schools is a pie with so many spoons in it from Floridas 67 school districts that Lee Countys share might barely cover the cost of a single SRO. Such political logic appears to strike Mark Castellano, president of the Lee Teachers Association and a 27-year veteran of public school classrooms, the same way it strikes Sheriff Scott. What Im about to say may not be popular with most people, but the reality is that sooner or later we have to figure out: Is paying taxes worth our childrens safety? Im befuddled by anybody who will put a tax break in front of a child. If it costs somebody anybody or everybody an extra quarter or even a dollar on their tax rate, how can that not be worth it? Sheriff Scott adds: The only way to fix the deficit in the short term is to infuse revenue. I know people dont like tax increases, but they like parks and libraries and safety.Single-issue alliesOpinions in this issue sometimes create allies of people who disagree on other closely related issues, such as gun control. Sheriff Scott, for example, suggests that the first line of defense in any horrific event that puts the lives of students and teachers at risk from a gunman is not the SRO, or for that matter any law enforcement officer. Thus, he is not in favor of gun control that would restrict faculty or staff from carrying weapons, since they have the same rights as everybody else to protect themselves and they are the front line, he argues. I will say this about teachers being armed, or you being armed: These campus shootings are happening everywhere. We dont want to sit in the cafeteria and get shot without protecting ourselves, if the law provides for this. Heres the ultimate issue: The police are often referred to as first responders. (But) you are the first responders. If youre a student at FGCU and youre walking around on campus and some idiot opens fire, youre the first responder. The only way to stop deadly force is with deadly force. You cant take a baseball bat to a gunfight. But Mr. Castellano at the Lee Teachers Association firmly in agreement with the sheriff that SROs are essential in elementary schools is unequivocally opposed to faculty or staff brandishing weapons in schools, as well as to laws that allow citizens everyday access to high-capacity weapons. I am appalled that nothing has been done with gun control laws, he says. Mr. Hayhurst at the school district concurs. I think its a bad idea for teachers to carry weapons. Granted, a teacher can go through a 40-hour course to carry a gun, but that training is nothing compared to what a deputy goes through. Let the deputies do their jobs. And in some cases, teachers themselves agree that SROs can provide significant aid and security in the contemporary milieu, but money spent to staff them might be better spent on other approaches. Im speaking from an elementary viewpoint, says Sara Kohlhauff, who has taught fourth grade at Pinewoods Elementary School in Estero for 15 years. In a school of our size, having one Student Resource Officer is sort of a symbolic gesture. From my perspective, we need to put our money into other places. For the extra $5 million to $10 million per year, she suggests, Lets look at education. Lets get parents in and instruct them how to keep your child safe, how to be more proactive. I know we keep going back to the single shooter, but that isnt it. Think of schools where there are drive-by shootings. We have students going to school in neighborhoods where theyre more at risk. It isnt about the single shooter coming into school. Its about getting to and from the bus stop safely, about bike walks so you dont get hit. And we need to have discussions about gun control, yea or nay. People cant just hide and say, Im not political. We have to discuss this. And the only way that will happen is through the school. So what is the role of the school?The SRO roleThe schools role nowadays might be to host an SRO or somebody with similar or even more sophisticated socialissue skills. The other issue, the one we havent talked about, is prevention, says Mr. Burke, the superintendent in Lee County. What resources are we willing to put into prevention, (such as) counselors and social workers? If Ms. Kohlhauff embraces the question, she doesnt have an answer. Like many others, though, the Estero teacher praises the work of SROs, acknowledging that they have great value for students in an educational sense, not just a security sense. Mr. Hayhurst, the security director in Lee, puts it this way: Deputies are there as mentors. They council students, they talk to them. They deal with cyber bullying, texting, good touch-bad touch. They sit in classrooms to teach. We had 10 deputies roaming elementary schools last week, and two children came up to say they were being sexually abused, and two others (said they) were being physically abused. Those deputies intervened. They may have saved those childrens lives, not only physically but emotionally. Nobody opposes such work. Its great for kids to have access to the police in a very friendly, Mr. Rogers neighborhood way I guess that dates me, Ms. Kohlhauff says. Its important they understand that authority figures are safe, that they not feel threatened by them. On campus, a great deal of the SROs work can solve problems that prove abnormally difficult for teachers. And such problems are not rare they typically mark the intersection of societal problems with the lives of teachers and students. Nine times out of 10, those issues involve abuse at home, or theyre custody issues. So that brings in officers (from the outside), Ms. Kohlhauff says. In the case of custody issues, the campus becomes the only place where two angry parents who speak only through lawyers know their child will be, Mrs. Edward at The Alva School says, echoing the concerns of her colleagues. And those parents are often emotional and unrestrained. That affects the entire campus, she says. Which is another very good reason to have an SRO in place, says Sheriff Scott, following the argument from the worstcase scenario to everyday scenarios. A couple of surveys have asked parents of school-aged children, Do you think there will ever be another campus shooting? And 100 percent answered, Yes, he says. If the answer is Yes, and every day people are dropping their children off at these schools, then its (imperative to have SROs), he says. An officer minimizes the likelihood and maximizes the response, if an event were to occur. If nothing happens, then the officer is left to develop a rapport with kids. Back at The Alva School one day last week, as the end-ofday, end-of-year announcements invited students to fold their tents for the summer, Mrs. Edward took a call from a receptionist telling her that a couple of very tense parents fighting over a child were seated outside her office. Tell them to stay there, she said pleasantly into the phone. The veteran educator rose from her chair, glided out of her office, strode purposely through the reception area and out the front door of the school, then sailed briskly past the open gate of a new 7-foot-high iron fence that ensures Alva has only a single entry or exit point to the campus. Mrs. Edward was in search of her schools SRO. She did not plan to referee anything. She planned, instead, to protect her school, and to ensure that students, faculty and other parents felt safe and secure. The best way to do that, she indicated, was with the presence of a uniformed deputy sheriff, who happened to be right outside. See? Mrs. Edward said. Theres an incident and we need him. This is your story. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYSecurity fences, such as this one at Bonita Springs Elementary School, have become standard features at schools. EDWARD CASTELLANO


Culture clashLow Fashion Meets Islam on Turkish TV: Five self-proclaimed devout, conservative Muslim women host the TV series Building Bridges on channel A9, presenting the seemingly contradictory case against both the female headscarf and Turkeys turn to secularism. A report on in May noted that the five are mostly bottle blonds ... (with) neon lipstick wearing brightly colored satin pantsuits and T-shirts with designer brand names that stretched over their chests. Building Bridges in principle supports interfaith dialogue, but guests (noted Slate) often appear ... with their eyebrows arched in the manner of a serious person certain he is the victim of a practical joke. Recurring themes Abdullah Riyaz, 50, was arrested at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad, India, in April after he appeared to be uncomfortable sitting in the waiting area. Officials found four biscuits of solid gold in his socks but obviously thought there might be more, and after nature took its course, found Mr. Riyaz to be one of those rare humans with the ability to brag that he once excreted gold (eight more biscuits). A report circulated in April that an apparently Orthodox Jewish man (likely a Kohen) had tied himself up, head to toe, in a plastic bag while seated on an airline flight likely because his teachings told him that flying over a cemetery would yield impurities. News of the Weird mentioned a similar report in 2001. Airlines have made accommodations in the past, even in the face of criticism that a man in a plastic bag is a safety hazard. (Exceptions to the Kohen belief: Accidental tears in the bag are excused, but pre-punched air holes not; Kohenim unaware of the cemetery overflight in advance do not need protection; and deceased family members yield no impurities.) The chairman of the National Showcaves Center in a Welsh national park, aiming to halt a recent downturn in tourism business, threatened in April to sue the UK National Weather Service for its all too (frequent) ... gloom and doom reports. The NWS had called for snow and cold weather over Easter weekend, but no snow fell, and the cold weather was tempered by sun and blue skies. (He also suggested adding health-type warnings to forecasts, e.g., beware that weather reports might be wrong.) In New Haven, Conn., in March, police had trapped two car-theft suspects in a multifamily building whose occupants were hiding from the suspects, thus necessitating urgency in ending the siege. Officers ordered a K-9 unit but were told it would be delayed. In a tactic departments occasionally employ, officers still threatened to release the dogs immediately, and to make the threat credible, available officers began barking. The suspects quickly surrendered rather than face the vicious canines. Herbert and Catherine Schaible, members of the First Century Gospel Church in Philadelphia and believers in faith-healing rather than medical care, were convicted in 2011 in the bacterialpneumonia death of their 2-year-old son, Kent. As a condition of probation, they promised medical care for their remaining eight children, but in April 2013, their youngest son, Brandon, died after severe diarrhea and pneumonia, again treated only by prayer, and they were arrested and the other children removed from the home. The medical examiner called Brandons death a homicide, and the couple also face five to 10 years in prison for violating probation. Detectives New Best Friend (Facebook): Christopher Robinson, 23, became just one of many recent suspects whose addiction to Facebook did him in. Mr. Robinson had never made a single child support payment in the three years since a court order was issued in Milwaukee, Wis., and the case had languished over how to prove that he was hiding money. Using other evidence for probable cause, the prosecutor got a warrant to search Mr. Robinsons private Facebook information and discovered a candid photograph of him, laughing over a pile of cash. The annual Chinese tomb sweeping celebration has been mentioned several times in News of the Weird, but has experienced a resurgence since 2008 when the government reinstated it as an official holiday. The theory is that people bring valuable items (such as jewelry) to ancestors gravesites and bury them with the body, which will upgrade the relatives afterlife. Now, however, practitioners seem convinced that paper images of items are sufficient (and, of course, less expensive). Many simply leave signed (and generous!) checks for the dead, according to an April New York Times dispatch, and others bury representations of mistresses to accompany presumably frisky corpses. Updates News of the Weird first learned of kopi luwak in 1993 coffee beans sold as gourmet because they had been swallowed by certain Asian civet cats and recovered from feces and washed. Since then, as Internet news of kopi luwak has spread, it has become no longer obscure, and in April, the environmental-activist website MongaBay. com warned that, based on increased demand, civet farms had sprung up in Indonesia and that civets were being caged for their entire lives solely for access to their poop. While none of the main kopi luwak civet species is formally endangered, activists warned that populations are dwindling for, said one, the most ridiculous threat ... to any wildlife I have seen yet. In one of the more prominent recent thats my story, and Im sticking to it cases, Vicky Pryce, 60, finally gave up in March and admitted to a judge that her husband, not she, was driving their speeding car in 2003. She was married at the time to high-ranking British government official Chris Huhne, whose license would have been suspended had he been driving and thus, she volunteered. The couples 10-year ruse had inspired two trials ending without decision. (Mr. Huhne rewarded Ms. Pryce for her loyalty in 2010 by having an affair. The couple are divorced and will be imprisoned separately for perverting justice.)

The last time confidence was this high was August of 2007 when it was 82, shortly before the Great Recession began, says Chris McCarty, Ph.D., director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Three of the five components used to determine the Florida Consumer Sentiment Index increased. Respondents expectations that their personal finances will improve a year from now rose three points to 82. Overall confidence in the nations economic conditions over the coming year increased two points to 81, and trust in the national economy over the next five years surged eight points to 85. The survey also showed a decline in two components. Survey takers perception that they are better off financially now than a year ago fell three points to 68, and confidence that now is a good time to buy a big consumer product, such as an automobile, fell one point to 89. Overall, though, Floridas confidence shows an upward trend. But the latest survey results show that older Floridians are even more optimistic. Among respondents 60 and older, confidence in the national economy over next five years increased 15 points to 88. As the headlines turn to news other than budget cuts and possible changes to Social Security, consumer confidence improves for Floridians, Mr. McCarty says. This is especially true for seniors. Positive statewide economic news continues to boost confidence. The legislative session in Tallahassee recently ended with a budget increase for the first time in several years. Aprils unemployment rate was 7.2 percent, a drop of three-tenths of a percent from March. Construction, retail trade and service sectors saw job increases. Home sale prices are improving, sales are strong and new home construction is under way in some areas of the state. So far, most Floridians have not experienced the negative effects of sequestration. However, this could change as wide-reaching cuts in services and jobs trickle into the economy, Mr. McCarty says. Our expectation is that the effects of sequestration will be more fully realized as the summer progresses and confidence will likely stay the same or pull back slightly, he says. For now, optimism among Floridians is growing. Conducted May 13-23, the study reflects the responses of 410 individuals representing a demographic cross-section of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a 2; the highest is 150.

Eagle Scout candidates add comfort and flora at airport SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTwo Naples high school students have completed Eagle Scout projects at the Naples Municipal Airport observation deck, making the area more inviting and comfortable for visitors. The Naples Airport Authority built the 600-square-foot deck at the south end of the main runway to provide the public with a good vantage point for watching aircraft. After raising $3,000 over several months to fund the effort, Richard Evans, 16, prepared the planting area and landscaped with five trees, 300 plants and more than 2,000 square feet of pine straw mulch. He also designed a layout that includes concrete pads for picnic tables and added a rack for six bicycles. Ryan DellAquila, 17, built six weatherand mildew-resistant picnic tables and two benches to provide seating on and around the deck. Both scouts are members of Troop 2. Mr. Evans is a junior at Gulf Coast High School, and Mr. Dell Aquila is a junior at Barron Collier High School. Mr. Evans father and past Scoutmaster, Nick Evans, served as the teens Eagle Scout coach and mentor, and donated the irrigation system for the landscaping project. Having Scouts complete these projects is especially meaningful to me, says Ted Soliday, executive director of the Naples Airport Authority. We designed the deck as an amenity for the community, and these young men have made the area more inviting and comfortable. Their contributions will serve many people in the years to come. Mr. Soliday spent more than 40 years as an adult leader in scouting and was recognized for distinguished service. Open to the public from dawn until dusk, the observation deck is reached via North Road, which runs along the south perimeter of the airport. To achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, candidates must meet several requirements, including earning at least 21 merit badges and planning, developing and giving leadership to others in a service project that is helpful to the community.

Initiatives to enhance the NCH patient experience continue National Hospital Week gave us a chance recently to reflect on some of the initiatives that NCH quality teams are leading. Here are some highlights: Our North Campus Emergency Department provides efficient, safe, quality care to all who enter our doors. The goal of a recent quality project was to improve the flow of patients through the ED while maintaining a safe environment. Essentially, we found that more than half of our patients those categorized as acuity level 3 (sick but not dying) were getting lost in ED no mans land.So we aimed to decrease door-to-doctor time for these patients to less than 78 minutes, to decrease their length of stay to below 244 minutes, to decrease left-without-being-seen to less than 2 percent and to retain overall patient satisfaction at above 84 percent. We achieved all of our metrics with a major increase in volume and record numbers for the 2012-13 season. This was truly a collaborative initiative among the entire ED staff, which is led by Betsy Novakovich, Dr. J. P anozzo, J on Kling and RNs Jill Zollar, Julie Stoner, Jessica Maguire, Wendall McClurg and Tom Morris. Our nursing quality improvement project for the Fifth Floor at North Naples Hospital has also made great strides. Through smart room technology and bedside nursing shift reports, we have improved patient satisfaction scores and made patients more involved in their care. Traditionally, a nursing shift report was given behind the nurses station, away from the patient. Giving a report at the bedside allows the patient to be involved as the oncoming nurse completes a mini-assessment with the assistance of the departing nurse. The nurses and patient can discuss events of the previous shift (new medications, pain management regimens, physician rounds, etc.) and make goals for the next shift. The smart room features allow the RNs to view medications and trend vital signs, intake/output and laboratory values. As we fine-tune our approach to bedside reports and increase staff confidence with smart room features, we are confident that quality-of-care and patient satisfaction scores will continue to improve. Quality team members for this project were nurse manager and RN Heather Dill, and RNs Stephen Taylor (who is also Nurse of the Year for North Naples), Melissa Reynolds and Tiffany Morrison. Rodney Judd, our director of patient relations and regulatory compliance, shared a cover page from a customer satisfaction survey. The patients comments reinforce that our efforts are well-placed: We dont need to fill out the survey to tell you that we found all of your services to be excellent and equal to the services we have gotten in the Mayo system back home.

Study could lead to longer fertility for women SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYScientists supported by the National Institutes of Health have a new theory as to why a womans fertility declines after her mid-30s. They also suggest an approach that might help slow the process, enhancing and prolonging fertility. They found that as women age, their egg cells become riddled with DNA damage and die off because their DNA repair systems wear out. Defects in one of the DNA repair genes BRCA1 have long been linked with breast cancer, and now also appear to cause early menopause. We all know that a womans fertility declines in her 40s. This study provides a molecular explanation for why that happens, says Susan Taymans, Ph.D., of the Fertility and Infertility Branch of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Eventually, such insights might help us find ways to improve and extend a womans reproductive life. The findings appear in Science Translational Medicine. In general, a womans ability to conceive and maintain a pregnancy is linked to the number and health of her egg cells. Before a baby girl is born, her ovaries contain her lifetime supply of egg cells (known as primordial follicle oocytes). As she enters her late 30s, the number of oocytes and fertility dips precipitously. By the time she reaches her early 50s, her original ovarian supply of about 1 million cells drops virtually to zero. Only a small proportion of oocytes about 500 are released via ovulation during the womans reproductive life. The remaining 99.9 percent are eliminated by the womans body, primarily through cellular suicide, a normal process that prevents the spread or inheritance of damaged cells. Scientists suspect that most aging oocytes self-destruct because they have accumulated a dangerous type of DNA damage called double-stranded breaks. According to the study, older oocytes have more of this sort of damage than do younger ones. The researchers also found that older oocytes are less able to fix DNA breaks due to their dwindling supply of repair molecules. Examining oocytes from mice and from women ages 24-41, the researchers found that the activity of four DNA repair genes declined with age. When the research team experimentally turned off these genes in mouse oocytes, the cells had more DNA breaks and higher death rates than did oocytes with properly working repair systems. The research teams findings stemmed from its initial focus on BRCA1, a DNA repair gene that has been closely studied for nearly 20 years because defective versions of it dramatically increase a womans risk of breast cancer. Using mice bred to lack the BRCA1 gene, the NICHD-supported scientists confirmed that a healthy version of BRCA1 is vital to reproductive health. BRCA1-deficient mice were less fertile and had fewer oocytes and more doublestranded DNA breaks in their remaining oocytes than did normal mice. Abnormal BRCA1 appears to cause the same problems in humans. The study suggests that a woman whose oocytes contain mutant versions of BRCA1 will exhaust her ovarian supply sooner than a woman whose oocytes carry the healthy version of BRCA1. Together, these findings show that the ability of oocytes to repair doublestranded DNA breaks is closely linked with ovarian aging and, by extension, a womans fertility.

During the past year, the volunteers have spent at least one day a week scanning images, programs and articles for later inclusion in a custom database. Michael Troop, a longtime member of TNP, took charge of the vast amount of scanning required. I consider the scanning a labor of l ove, and Ive truly enjoyed it because Ive learned so much about this organization that I care so deeply about, he says. Others involved concur that they enjoyed learning throughout the process. It was fun archiving plays that I had seen, reading the reviews and learning more about the fundamentals of the shows, says committee member and archivist Doris Fiddes. I found out more about the individuals and what went on with the (productions) than I could have ever learned anywhere else. Some volunteers who have a long history with TNP were able to recognize individuals in photos that were previously unidentified. Ann and Denny Hoover, for example, have been active in TNP since 1986 and were able to lend names to faces in many pictures. It brought back a lot of great memories, Mrs. Hoover says. Some of the archive project volunteers themselves were frequently identified in the articles and photographs. Dick Sullivan, who has been a part of the archiving process from the beginning, has performed in TNP productions for more than 20 years and was able to educate other volunteers about the actors and stories connected with many plays. Mr. Sullivan spent six to eight hours a day at the public library scouring microfiche files to recover documents that were not in the hands of TNP. As a Collier County school librarian and active member in TNP, Marcia Kolmann brought her own set of talents to the table as she assisted Ms. MenaldiScanlan in the archive process. I think its important for our children to have a sense of history, particularly in an area like ours where an 11-year-old building is considered old, Ms. Kolmann says. Its important that they know about the people who have made this city the wonderful place it is. This project is a part of saving that history for the future. Karen Attanasio has been working diligently to develop a database to organize and access the information. My goal is to put at the users fingertips all of the information that is being gathered into one easy to understand and navigate database, she says. In the end, the database will allow a person to type in an actors name and find every performance he or she has ever been in with TNP.The archive project should soon come to a close. It is rare for a community theater to do as well as The Naples Players have done in all aspects, from the quality of the productions themselves to a 400plus volunteer base and the generous financial support of the community. Putting all of this into perspective, the TNP archive project will help future generations of Neapolitans to better understand the history of the arts, and theater in particular, in Collier County.

PET TALESChill kittyStress-free cats are less likely to develop illnesses or behavior problems BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickSometimes when I talk to a pet owner about her cats stress, I can almost hear what shes thinking. Stress? You must be kidding. This cat sleeps 20 hours a day, gets handed food to him twice a day and never has to lift a paw for anything, I imagine her saying. Now if you want to talk about stress, listen to what Im dealing with every day. Its true that cats arent dealing with long commutes, tight budgets and all the other modern strains that we people have. But its also true that many of them feel stressed. You need to care about that, because when a cat is stressed, hes more likely to get sick or develop behavior problems. My colleague and longtime friend Dr. Tony Buffington leads the Indoor Pet Initiative at The Ohio State Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine. Here are some of his suggestions for keeping your cat calmer and healthier, as a result. Understand that cats do not respond to force, and that they do respond to praise. Punishment that follows an action by more than a few seconds wont stop the cat from doing it again, and may even cause the animal to become fearful of the owner or the surroundings. Provide a room or other space that the cat can call his own, complete with food and water, a bed (a cat carrier with a soft pad inside is a good choice), a litter box, a scratching/climbing post (cats need to be able to scratch and climb), a window to look out of and some toys. Offer vertical space as well as horizontal. Even a small apartment can become a good-sized place for a cat if you provide cat trees, feline stairways and other ways for him to enjoy living the high life. Place food and the litter boxes away from appliances and air ducts that could come on unexpectedly, and locate them so that another animal (or human) cannot sneak up on the cat while hes using the box. Food and water should be kept fresh, and the litter box should be scooped every day. Give your cat something to scratch on to ensure that he can engage in this normal behavior without damaging furniture. A cat can easily be enticed to use scratching structures by placing them in places the cat likes, pairing with treats, feeding and playing near the structure, and praising profusely when the cat is seen using it. Remember that cats seem to prefer to feel like they are in control of their surroundings, so allow them to choose the changes they want to make. When you make changes (food, litter, toys, etc.), offer them in a separate container next to the familiar one so your cat can decide whether or not to change. Take your cat to the veterinarian regularly. In addition to providing preventive health care through regular checkups, your cats doctor can help you troubleshoot and resolve any issues before they become problems. Theres more to keeping a cat happy and healthy indoors than putting down food, water and a litter box.

The main Love That Dress! to-dos take place Wednesday, Aug. 28, at Embassy Suites in Estero and Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. Both events benefit the PACE Center for Girls, a statewide organization that helps at-risk young women through education, advocacy and counseling. For the past five years, gazillions (OK, it SEEMS like gazillions) of women have converged upon Love That Dress! events to shop with a vengeance for gently used and brand new donated dresses. The events are built around a fairly simple, but brilliant concept: that shopping is fun and bargains are fabulous. Alas, the events only happen once a year so in the meantime, I sustain my desire for inexpensive but cute clothes at your divas most favorite store of all, Ross Dress for Less. (Disclaimer: While Ive been singing the praises of Ross for years, I am not a stockholder, nor do I get free clothes although I should. In fact, as often as Im at Ross, I deserve a private dressing room and a shirtless Ryan Gosling look-alike to bring me bubbly and bon-bons while I try on $12.99 dresses.) At a dinner party recently, another Ross aficionado and I had an animated discussion about the rules of shopping at Ross (these guidelines can also be used at Marshalls and TJ Maxx, natch): First of all, dont expect to just run into Ross give yourself an hour or three. While picking up a bathing suit cover-up, you WILL get distracted by a set of hand-painted wine glasses for only $7.99, trust me. If you put something without a price tag in your cart, find something comparable to take to the register for the clerk to scan. If a price check is needed, it will take forever. Typically, only one or two registers are open, so consider the line of people behind you and save time by removing your finds from their hangers while you wait. Also, fold them with tags in view. Know your route sale racks first, then regular racks, then the designer racks in the front of the store. If your arms are full of clothes by the time you reach the $29.99 Calvin Klein sweater sets up front, you might want to just head straight for the register instead. Whatever happens, have fun and dont invest too much emotional energy into your shopping excursion whether its to Ross or Nordstrom, youre probably just going to end up donating your frocks to Love That Dress! anyway. SPADA-thonRacks and piles and armfuls of dresses were collected last week at the annual SPADA-thon in south Fort Myers. If you missed it, fret not. Here are a couple of more Love That Dress! collection parties on the calendar:In Naples, 5-7 p.m. Thursday, June 13: The Royal Shell Companies and Osetra Champagne & Caviar Bar Drop off your dresses for donation to the cause at the Royal Shell office, 601 Fifth Ave. S., buy some raffle tickets and enjoy something sweet from Norman Love Confections along with a glass of wine before hopping in a limo for the short ride to Osetra, where a glass of bubbly and a caviar treat await (stay for dinner and 20 percent of your ticket will be donated to PACE). For more information, call 2807775 or e-mail Stacey Herring at On Sanibel, 5-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18: The Village Shops and Matzaluna restaurant Hosted by the Royal Shell Companies and The Prawnbroker Group, this party starts at The Village Shops and continues at Matzaluna, where 15 percent of each dinner tab will be donated to PACE.

Perform a P&C annual checkupAn annual physical checkup is a good idea. The annual financial review, as well, is a common and smart practice. And so, too, there should be an annual review of your property and casualty, or P&C, insurance. This is the insurance that covers your homes, cars, investment homes, commercial properties, etc. What was appropriate coverage last year might be inappropriate at the time of your annual review since you, the insured, and the insurer and its policies are subject to change. Typical changes that might go unnoticed: getting married, divorced or widowed; adult children coming off auto policies if domiciled outside of Florida; dramatic increases or decreases in appraised value of the insured property; new discounts offered by car insurers for those willing to add a monitoring device on their car; a greater personal capacity by the insured to withstand financial loss and, therefore, a willingness to increase deductible limits; etc. The P&C checkup is best done face-toface not that an eyeball-to-eyeball with your agent will generate different answers or lower premiums, but it makes it easier to follow if various pricing metrics are being quoted from a computer screen. In such a meeting, tell your agent about the changes you perceive in your life. You should request that your agent ask about various factors that are known to impact scope, quality and pricing of your coverage. Getting the cheapest coverage is not the most important end result from an annual checkup. You need to make sure that you are comfortable with the quality or rating of the insurer and that you are getting value for what you are paying. The cheapest policy might take you into a low-rated insurer and might reduce the scope of your coverage. You need to make sure that you have the depth and breadth of coverage appropriate for your assets and activities. Most homeowners are facing higher P&C premiums for the same level of coverage of last year. Lest your insurer be blamed for gouging, consider that much of the increase on insurance premiums is driven by the cost that insurers must pay for their own insurance protection. For instance, insurers cannot fully underwrite exposure to calamities and/or acts of God (e.g., tornadoes or hurricanes) without paying another insurance company to assume excess risks. This other insurer, called a reinsurer, pays the excess of claims over a stipulated and agreed amount. Since Hurricane Sandy struck the Northeast last year, many reinsurers have raised their re insurance rates across the board, even though the hurricane did not impact Florida property. Unfair? Yes, but it might have been that Floridas multiple hurricanes in prior years increased reinsurance rates to nonFlorida insureds at that time. How can you avoid a premium increase in such a rising rate environment? You can consider changing your deductible on the policy; if you increase the amount of loss that you are willing to retain, then the policys premium will be lower. It is easy for your agent to show you the various deductible/premium trade-offs. Hypothetically, if you save $500 annually in premiums, then you might consider raising your home insurance deductible from $1,000 to $5,000 annually, as the risk of an incremental outlay of $4,000 ($5,000-$1,000) might be more than offset by the annual savings of $500. If, prospectively, you have no claims exceeding $1,000 per year, then you are ahead of the game $2,000 over the next four years. However, even if risk/reward makes sense, you still need to determine if you have the financial wherewithal to pay the incremental $4,000. When you visit with your agent, inquire to make sure that you have received all mitigation credits applicable to your home. Generally, anything constructed after 2002 has been built under updated code. If your home was constructed before 2002 and you have improved the structure for roofing or decking, you might likely get a mitigation credit. Most common is a wind mitigation credit for roofing straps. There are some advantages to bundling all P&C with one insurance carrier but not all P& C carriers offer both personal lines of coverage (e.g., both Florida auto and home insurance); your agent might offer alternative carriers. As to autos, review all the basics (e.g. listing the drivers and determining residency in the home or at school etc.) Do not assume that an older car is cheaper to insure, since the liability coverage is the bulk of the expense; such might be true if you have dropped the collision insurance portion on your older car. For instance, a car worth $1,500 might not be worthy of collision insurance that has a deductible of $1,000 if the collision premium is $100 every six months. Of course, even if you drop collision, you will need to keep all of your liability coverage in full force. Ask your auto insurer about: a vanishing deductible, accident forgiveness (particularly important if you have teenage drivers who are very accident-prone), and cash back for driving accident-free for an extended period of time. These policy riders are not free, but the upfront cost might save you a lot of money in the long run. Adding a device that monitors your driving and can generate savings can be a free benefit (and a reality check on your driving.) There are also discounts for retirees and partial-retirees. There are adjustments to be made if you keep your car stored and unused in your garage for an extended period of time, often quite applicable to snowbirds.The metrics around auto liability coverage are complex. Visit with your agent to fully understand the ramifications of liability if you are in an accident and cause an accident. If you have significant assets that are not protected in trusts and LLCs etc., then you might want to consider additional coverage of an umbrella policy which, beyond auto liability, can be valued protection to those owning rental properties.

With a market value around $4 billion, Im a global workforce solutions company, offering services such as recruitment, training and development, and outsourcing. I oversee nearly 3,500 offices in more than 80 countries and territories. I went public via an initial public offering (IPO) in 1967. Over the years I was briefly owned by Parker Pen and Blue Arrow plc. My stock has grown by an annual average of 7 percent over the past 20 years, and I rake in more than $20 billion per year.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Buffett and Munger in Omaha In early May, tens of thousands of Berkshire Hathaway shareholders gathered in Omaha to listen to Chairman Warren Buffett and his partner, Charlie Munger, answer their questions for five hours. Here are some paraphrased nuggets from the annual meeting: On Berkshire Hathaways competitive advantage: Charlie: Weve always tried to stay sane when other people like to go crazy. Thats a competitive advantage. ... Weve used the golden rule, treating our subsidiaries the way wed want to be treated. ... We try to be a good partner to people who come to us. Thats a competitive advantage. Warren: Our competitive advantage is that we dont have any competitors people who sell their businesses to us dont have other attractive options. On being successful: Warren: Charlie and I live simple lives, and we do what we like. ... We like to read a lot. Charlie: We didnt know when we started out that you shouldnt make a lot of decisions when youre tired, or that making a lot of decisions is tiring. ... Were basically so old-fashioned that were boring. You ought to keep plugging along, stay rational, stay energetic. The old values still work. Ive never succeeded doing something I didnt like doing. Warren: You have to love something to do well at it. Its a big advantage if you love it. It adds to your productivity. On improving our national competitiveness: Warren: Health care cost is a big item. Say we spend 17 percent of GDP on health care. Most of our rivals pay 9.5 percent to 11.5 percent. There are only 100 cents in a dollar; if you give up 7 cents on the dollar, that will be a major problem in American competitiveness. It doesnt relate to Medicare. The real problem is the cost, regardless of the payer system. ... Our system works, but the No. 1 problem for American business is health care costs. Well offer a few more gems next week. In the meantime, read Buffetts educational (and often entertaining) letters to shareholders at Trust yourselfIn 1969, I finally had enough cash with which to invest in some stocks. I had been studying stock reports for many years, and picked three low-priced stocks that had consistently paid dividends. I went to a local broker and told him what I wanted. He countered by suggesting several stocks that he thought would grow much faster a sulfur miner and a real-estate company. Well, I bought those two, and one of my own ideas as well. Within six years, both his companies were no longer trading, but my stock was still around and paying its dividends. Now I more or less follow my own advice, and Ive usually done well. F.J., via emailThe Fool responds: This is a great reminder that we small investors can do well on our own by reading up on investing, carefully researching stocks and making our own decisions. Some brokers are not that skilled, after all, and some have conflicts of interest, too. Consistent dividend payers make terrific candidates for a long-term stock portfolio, because if and when the market slumps, theyll still generate income. Play Defense with TextronAerospace and defense company Textron (NYSE: TXT) sank some 13 percent in a single day last month, on a disappointing earnings report featuring a soft market for business jets. When stocks fall they can present opportunities, and Textron is worth considering at recent levels. The company has a wide global reach, with businesses such as Cessna, Bell Helicopter and unmanned aircraft specialist AAI. Textron builds golf carts through its E-Z-GO subsidiary, commercial lawn mowers through Jacobsen and hand tools through Greenlee. Via its ownership of Ka utex, it also offers automotive parts such as gas tanks, camshafts and catalytic converters. Many focus on its military-centric products such as armored security vehicles, rescue boats, hovercrafts and various weapons. Textrons latest quarter revealed flat revenue and earnings below expectations. Military spending has not been strong lately, and the automotive market has shown some weakness, too, but helicopters have been flying off the shelves. Management has also noted, (W)e believe the global business jet market still has significant long-term growth potential, and we remain committed to our new product plans. The stock recently sported a price-toearnings (P/E) ratio of 14, while its forward P/E is just 10, below its five-year average. Its worth keeping an eye on.

I was born in a one-bedroom apartment in Chicago in 1984, and today I have more than 3,000 employees and operations in 27 countries, providing independent investment research. The nations shift from pensions toward 401(k)s boosted interest in mutual funds, so I began providing data on them. In 1985, I introduced ratings for funds. I went public in 2005. I cover more than 400,000 investments, including stocks, and I even manage money now, with about $157 billion in assets under management recently. Ive bought companies such as Ibbotson Associates. I rake in more than $650 million annually. Who am I? (Answer: Morningstar) Free Money with 401(k)sQAre 401(k)s really so worthwhile? D.Y., St. Augustine, Fla.AThey certainly are for most of us. With a 401(k), your employer plunks the portion of your salary that you specify into the account. That contribution comes from pretax income. So if you earn $50,000 per year and can send $5,000 to your 401(k), youll have only $45,000 in taxable income to report. Your taxes will be lower, and youll have some pre-tax dollars invested for the future.All pre-tax contributions grow untaxed until you withdraw them in retirement, as you must generally do starting at age 70. Then theyre taxed at your ordinary income rate. Money in a 401(k) can usually be invested in a variety of things. We recommend broad-market stock index funds, such as ones based on the S&P 500. It can be good to balance that with some bonds, too, but less so the further you are from retirement. Best of all, many employers match a portion of your 401(k) contributions. If your company does, make the most of it thats free money!

S.Z., Topeka, Kan.AThe P/E ratio is simply the recent stock price divided by the annual earnings per share (EPS). A stock trading at $20 per share with an EPS of $2 will have a P/E of 10 (20 divided by 2). If the stock splits 2-for1, the shares will be priced around $10 and the EPS will also be halved, resulting in an unchanged P/E, as 10 divided by 1 is 10.Got a question for the Fool?

The regions job picture shows nice net growth and its not just hospitality, said Gary Jackson, director of the Regional Economic Research Institute and assistant professor of economics at Florida Gulf Coast University. Jobs in professional and business services, construction, retail trade and burgeoning high-tech and skilled industries are on the upswing. But lower-paying jobs in sectors such as tourism and retail trade, and even in health care, have grown at a faster rate than more desirable middleor higherpaying jobs, some economists say. A report by Wells Fargo Securities, Florida Economic Outlook: May 2013, says that wages and salaries in Southwest Florida metropolitan areas barely keeps pace with population growth, much less inflation. Meanwhile, college graduates are taking on more debt than ever before (41 percent of Florida Gulf Coast University graduates were saddled with an average of $22,171 debt in 2011, says the Institute for College Access and Success, a nonprofit research organization) and inflation ticked up at a rate of 1.7 percent last year. The cost of school makes education necessary to perform some skilled positions out of reach for many. Wells Fargo economists defined lower paying as an income 20 percent or more below the average wage (about $19 per hour in the Southwest Florida metropolitan statistical area). The lower-paid group of employees climbed by 2.9 percent since last May, while higher-paying counterparts were up 1.4 percent. There are higher-paying jobs being created, especially in health care, the report concludes. But a surprisingly large number of jobs in the health care sector (home health care, nursing centers and social assistance) tend to pay relatively low wages. The glut of lower-paying positions is a nationwide trend, said that banks economists and others. Richard D. Coe, professor of economics at New College of Florida, said a low-paying job recovery actually began more than a decade ago, after the recession of 2001. Really, what (the great recession) did was exacerbate a trend thats been happening in this entire century, he said. The National Employment Law Project, a liberal research and advocacy group, reported last year that middlewage jobs lost because of the recession were replaced mostly with lower-paying ones. In an analysis of 366 occupations the U.S. Labor Department tracks, the report found 21 percent of jobs lost in the wake of the recession, between 2008 and 2010, paid between $7.69 per hour and $13.83, while 60 percent of lost jobs paid between $13.84 and $21.13. Further eroding higher paying jobs in the recovery years, between 2010 and 2012, NELP says the lower paying positions accounted for 58 percent of the nations job growth while mid-level ones made up only 21 percent of the recovery. Our economy is in the process of recovering but its a very different employment picture now than when we were in the downturn, allowed Barbara Hartman, spokeswoman for Southwest Florida Works. While we are still in the early stages of this recovery, wages in the region are currently flat, said Mr. Wall of the Southwest Florida Workforce Board. FGCU economist Mr. Jackson notes that when the housing market collapsed, Southwest Florida was hit harder, the recession here cutting deeper than almost any other area of the country. So its been a longer recovery than youd normally expect, he said. I guess the question is as the economy fully recovers, will (employees) be able to get jobs in higher-paying occupations.Now hiringOne of the regions largest employers, Lee Memorial Health System, hires up to 2,000 employees annually (with a 10 percent turnover rate). Physicians, physical and occupational therapists and information technology professionals (often needed to help with the change to electronic medical records) are hot jobs in the hospital system. And about 200 registered nurses are hired by LMHS each year, said Kristy Rigot, system director of recruitment and retention. Among recent hires is registered nurse Wendy T. Faux, who moved from Pennsylv ania to take a position with LMHS as manager of patient-centered care. She plans to hire 16 registered nurses as case managers for patients. Since becoming a registered nurse in the 1990s, Ms. Faux said there was always a demand for R.N.s in acute care. And shes working on earning a masters degree as a nurse educator. Her daughter, who will follow in her footsteps by becoming a registered nurse in Pennsylv ania next week, is already getting job offers. But her son, who graduated from law school earlier this month in that state, is still looking. Honestly the opportunities are not out there like we thought they would be, she said. Now if he went into health law but its something hes always wanted to do since the age of 5. In the last few years, while Ms. Fauxs daughter and son were working on their respective degrees, construction projects surged for Adams Homes, said Bill Panebianco, sales manager for the companys Southwest Florida division. He has added a handful of positions to clerical and sales staff. And the company has 90 new homes under construction in the region. Each, he points out, requires subcontractors: People who clear the land, people who create the slab, the concrete work, interior framing and roofing, the electrical, the plumbing, the painting, flooring, lighting New homes are growing faster than anything else in this area because the foreclosures have virtually dried up. So people are turning toward the new homes because its not much more expensive than the old homes. And most happily for gastronomists, the first Culvers restaurant in Florida is opening in Naples in the late summer, said Mike Busalacchi, owner-operator with his son, Vinnie. The famous Midwest burger and custard chains location at 5775 AirportPulling Road will employ roughly 60 people, full and part time. And it helps match employee 401k plans and offers health care benefits for full-time workers. Other Culvers locations are planned for Port Charlotte, Fort Myers and Sarasota, said a company spokesperson. Any job, whether serving up a burger or managing a team of nurses, holds the promise of nurturing a wounded economy back to health. I think you know its been a tough number of years but at the same time its kind of set the stage for us to be able to grow, Mr. Jackson said.

PAGE 44 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB24 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 The housing market momentum continues to remain strong heading into summer, according to the newest numbers from the Naples Area Board of Realtors. NABOR leaders cite three major indicators: 1. Overall inventory continues to decrease. 2. Median home price continues to increase. 3. The average days on the market are lower. NABOR tracks residential listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island) and releases a monthly and quarterly report of activity. For the last few years we have continued to see strong home sales in the summer, says Mike Hughes of Downing-Frye Realty. The notion of strong sales occurring only during traditional season is no longer, he adds. We are very bullish on the real estate market heading into summer due to the environment of low inventory, the tightening up of days on the market and the increase in median prices. Brenda Fioretti of Prudential Florida Realty adds, This is the first time in a long time that we have seen such a drastic decrease in the average days on the market. The NABOR April report provides annual comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the SunshineMLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the specifics: The overall median closed price increased 18 percent, from $186,000 at the end of April 2012 to $219,000 for the 12-month period ending April 2013. Overall pending sales increased 5 percent, from 10,166 units to 10 ,678 units for the 12-month period ending April 2013. Overall pending sales increased 27 percent in the $300,000 to $500,000 category, 13 percent in the $500,000 to $1 million category and 21 percent in the $1 million to $2 million category. The average days on the market decreased 14 percent overall, from 183 days in April 2012 to 158 days in April 2013. Overall pending sales in the Naples coastal area increased 11 percent, from 1,913 units to 2,122 units, and closed sales increased 12 percent, from 1,695 units to 1,894 units, for the 12-month period ending April 2013. There are encouraging statistics indeed, says Phil Wood of John R. Wood Realtors. Condominium pending sales increased 40 percent, from 169 to 237 for the 12-month period ending April 2013. Condominium closed sales increased 13 percent, from 165 to 187 for the same period. See the full report at www.naplesarea. com.

In January 2012, we reported on the contract for a television movie based on the book to be developed by producer Jonathan Axelrod for the Hallmark Movie Channel. Now we can report that the screenplay written by Walter Klenhard has been filmed and the movie will premiere at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24. The movie was shot in Vancouver in April and early May. By filming time, says the author, my contribution to the production (the source novel) was long in the background.

He told me standing up in the kitchen of an old stone house where a group of us are spending the summer. I had just put on a pot of water for tea and the electric kettle churned as the man said that he had learned of the death of a friend. Not just a friend, he said, but a woman with whom he had once been intimate, a woman he had once loved. He saw her at a dinner party in London before he left to come here. She was cold to him, he said, and he was distant to her, and they treated each other with the stiff formality that often grows between people when much has been left unsaid. She slipped into a diabetic coma, he said, and died in the night. He kept his eyes on the floor as he spoke and I stood helplessly with the empty teacup in my hand. Spring has been cold here, and damp, and a light shower fell outside the window. Dark circles shadowed my friends eyes, and as he spoke about the woman I realized he still loved her. He looked up from the floor and met my gaze for the first time. I regret that I never told her what she means to me, he said. What could I say? I know there is nothing so unforgiving as remorse and no remorse greater than a love unspoken. My friend walked out of the kitchen after a few minutes, but his sentiment stayed with me. Ive been turning it over all week. I was still turning it over when I received a stern message from another friend in New York. Id missed a phone date wed planned all week terrible, I know and in my haste to apologize Id tripped over myself, botching what was meant to be an apology e-mail. I sounded indifferent to our friendship, cold and distant in a way I had not intended. If it were me, my friend wrote back, Id make it a point to make the friends that matter really feel that they matter. I was taken aback. Id been raised in the school of silent relations, where people who love each other keep their emotions to themselves. We nurse our grudges slowly and in silence, and we never voice our deep feelings. We dont bring them into the light of day. We hold our love close. But my friend in New York was right, and I had the sudden image of the man earlier in the week standing in the gray kitchen, telling me about a woman he loved and lost without ever expressing how he felt. I couldnt help but think that we are, all of us, too hesitant with our feelings. We are too sparing with our words. I wonder if we wouldnt do better to plunge head-long into unguardedness.

PAGE 52 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 theyre completely deadpan in their video cover of Electric Light Orchestras Dont Bring Me Down. (Found on YouTube where else?) The tunes part of their Cover Tune Grab Bag series of low-budget videos. Very low budget. Worst Cad (tie) >> Mark Vanagas in Les Liaisons Dangereuses >> Daniel Benzing in The Liar >> Brendan Powers in The Fantasticks Life is full of cads, and so is the theater. This season saw an abundance of them on local stages. Mark Vanagas played Valmont in the Naples Players Les Liaisons Dangereuses, a man who beds a virtuous woman just to win a bet. During Act I, some women seated near me called him a rogue, but during Act II, they started calling him a brute. At Theatre Conspiracy, Daniel Benzing in David Ives adaptation of The Liar was the happy-go-lucky guy who just could never tell the truth. And Brendan Powers, in Florida Repertory Theatres production of The Fantasticks, took away womens innocence with charm and a smile. My Favorite Romance / Fictional >> Uncle Fester and the Moon in The Addams Family The Addams Family at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall couldve been so much more creative than it was, but it had its moments. And one of them was Uncle Fester falling in love with the moon, and serenading her. My Favorite Romance / Real Life >> Rachel Burttram and Brendan Powers Its so common for cast members to fall in love with each other during a shows run that theres even a term for it: showmance. But typically, when the show ends, so does the romance. Rachel Burttram and Brendan Powers met in late 2007 while in Doubt at the Florida Repertory Theatre. (She was playing a young nun, he a priest.) They married on May 10, in the very spot where theyd met Florida Reps rehearsal room, which has now become ArtStage Studio Theatre. Maureen Heffernan, who directed Doubt, officiated. Saved the Best for Last Award >> Steve Martin and Edie Brickell and the Steep Canyon Rangers Just as season was ending, Steve Martin, Edie Brickell and the Steep Canyon Rangers kicked off their summer tour at the BB Mann. Without a doubt, one of the best shows of the entire season, as they entertained, relentlessly tickled the funny bone, and delighted. Steve Martin can play a banjo as well as he can toss out a funny line, and Edie Brickell blew us away with her incredible voice and quirky lyrics. Best Thing to Happen to Fort Myers Since Sidewalks >> Tedeschi Trucks Band and the Sunshine Blues Festival The Tedeshi Trucks Band kicked off its inaugural Sunshine Blues Festival in downtown Fort Myers Centennial Park earlier this year. They brought an impressive line-up of musicians, including Big Sams Funky Nation, Jaimoes Ja sssz Band, Walter Trout and the Wood Brothers. There were so many acts they had to have two stages. Hearing Susan Tedeschis singing and guitar playing, along with Derek Trucks slide guitar, made us think of Bonnie and Delaney and Friends, or Joe Cockers Mad Dogs and Englishmen days. It was simply magical. Heres hoping they keep returning to Fort Myers. Author I Wouldnt Mind Being Stuck on a Desert Island With >> Dorothea Benton Frank Dorothea Benton Frank, the Distinguished Author Award recipient at this years Lee County Reading Festival, is Southern, charming, smartmouthed, quick-witted and eternally entertaining. Her Low Country books are New York Times bestsellers. And we hear shes a terrific cook, too. Best Revival >> Anything Goes Anything Goes, playing at Artis Naples in March, was the feel-good musical of the season. Filled with show-stopping tap dance numbers and Cole Porters catchy songs and clever lyrics, it couldnt fail. And Rachel York, portraying Reno Sweeney, belted out Blow Gabriel Blow and other songs with such gusto and verve, that I didnt miss Sutton F oster one bit. And thats quite a feat. My Favorite Elf >> Jason Parrish in The Santaland Diaries Youd think Id get bored of seeing The Santaland Diaries every December at Florida Rep, but yet, I dont. I attribute this not only to the clever writing of David Sedaris, but the terrific acting of Jason Parrish, who manages to put a different spin on the one-man show every year. Most Complex Character >> Kraig Swartz in I Am My Own Wife A traitor? A gay icon? A heroine? A betrayer of her own people? Kraig Swartz played the complex Charlotte von Mahlsdorf as well as a few dozen other characters in the oneman show, I Am My Own Wife at Gulfshore Playhouse. Set Id Most Like to Live In (tie) >> Time Stands Still and Other Desert Cities Sometimes you see a dress on stage that you wish you could own. Often, at Florida Rep, you see sets and instantly think: I wish I lived there! That happened at least twice this season. I loved Drew LaMotts set of a Brooklyn loft in ArtStage Studio, complete with a wooden plank floor, working stove and sink, and a door on two sawhorses for a desk/dining room table. (And the fact that it had books and magazines comfortably scattered about also helped.) On the larger stage, Richard Crowells set of a mid-century modern home for Other Desert Cities had me wanting to move right in though not with its current inhabitants. Best Dirty Joke We Didnt Understand >> Bonnie Knapp in The Clean House Bonnie Knapp, who played a Brazilian maid in the Naples Players production of The Clean House, opened the show by telling a dirty joke completely in Portuguese. While we didnt understand all the words, we certainly understood the gestures and body language. Thought Wed Come a Long Way, Baby, Award >> American Idiot American Idiot, the musical, played at the BB Mann in May for one night. It was great hearing Green Days music, and the show had interesting choreography, but the role of women seemed like a throwback to the s. They were all secondary characters, seen only as adoring, sexual companions for the three losers who played the leads. Most Dysfunctional Family (tie) >> The Wyeths of Other Desert Cities and the Hubbards of The Little Foxes The Wyeths in Florida Reps Other Desert Cities are full of secrets and addictions. The mothers an iceberg who threatens to disown her own daughter if she publishes a memoir. The Hubbards of Lilian Hellmans The Little Foxes (also at Florida Rep) lie and cheat and try to steal each others money. Completely heartless, soul-less people. You wouldnt want to live with either family, but damn, it sure makes for good drama.

The doors at Silverspot Cinema in Mercato open at 6:30 p.m. for food and drink, and the movies start at 7 p.m. A discussion follows each screening. Tickets for $25 are on sale now at www. Heres the lineup: Tuesday, June 11: Strictly Ballroom The 1994 directorial debut of Australian Baz Lurhmann (Romeo + Juliet, The Great Gatsby) tells the story of Scott Hastings, a champion ballroom dancer who outrages the dance community when he decides to choreograph his own steps. After his ambitious dance partner abandons him to increase her chances of winning the prestigious Australian Pan Pacific Championships, Hastings finds an unlikely supporter in Fran, an ugly duckling with little dance experience. Fran believes in Scotts unorthodox style and wants to dance with him in the championships, to show the ballroom dance community that theres more to dancing than just strictly ballroom. Rated PG. Tuesday, July 9: The Sting Forty years after its premiere, NIFF revisits the complex caper film starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Set in 1936, it follows a pair of professional grifters as they plot to con the mob boss who killed their friend. The Sting won seven Academy Awards and in 2005 was added to the National Film Registry. Rated PG. Tuesday, Aug. 13: The Station Agent Its been 10 years since this charming comedy/drama debut from writer/director Thomas McCarthy won the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival. When his only friend dies, Fin McBride (Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones) takes up residence in a rural towns old train depot, eagerly anticipating a life of solitude. Instead, he finds himself reluctantly becoming enmeshed in the lives of his neighbors. Rated R. Tuesday, Sept. 10: Sunset Boulevard Time magazine described it as Hollywood at its worst told by Hollywood at its best. The iconic 1950 film noir tells the story of Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), a forgotten silent-screen goddess who has become a demented recluse in her Hollywood mansion. Longing to return to the big screen, Norma hires Joe Gillis (William Holden), a down-on-hisluck screenwriter to polish her script, an epic that she believes will ensure her triumphant comeback. In 1989, Sunset Boulevard was included in the first group of films selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Not rated.

His memoir contains lines such as: I remember Nehru jackets. I remember when turtlenecks were big, talk about what restaurants would let you in and what ones wouldnt. I remember Blondie and Dagwood shorts before the feature started. I remember thinking that comic books that werent very funny shouldnt be called comic books. Inspired by Brainards memoir, I decided to do a column with sentences starting I miss I miss the Naples Dinner Theatre, including the waitresses who would ask Do you want coffee? with a New York accent. I miss Roger Eberts insightful reviews and his comments on his blog, as well as the intelligent discussion that followed from readers. I miss Borders and its great selection of books about music. I miss the later hours Barnes & Noble would stay open, the way I could slip in for a half hour after seeing a show at the Phil in Naples. I miss the longer hours the Fort Myers library used to have. I miss card catalogs, and the serendipity of browsing through them and randomly coming across the names of interesting-sounding books. I miss variety shows on TV. It was a great way to see Broadway acts. I miss finger painting: the wet paint on slick paper. I miss Calvin and Hobbes and seeing that stuffed tiger come alive. I miss The Far Side. (I remember how people were so puzzled when it first came out, how they kept saying Its not funny and I dont get it.) I miss Sly Stones music, how funky and melodic it was. (Can there be anything better than blasting Hot Fun in the Summertime while driving in your car with the windows down?) I miss watching snow fall in the night sky. I miss wearing sweaters. I miss Theatre Conspiracys former space, with its old mismatched couches and armchairs. I miss the way they would put a piece of paper up by the entrance, temporarily naming the theater after someone for that shows run. I miss Dick Westlake, seeing him perform onstage, running into him around town, e-mailing with him about movies and musicals. I miss The Weekly World News tabloid and reading its ridiculous headines about Bat Boy or Elvis or aliens while standing on line at the supermarket. I miss seeing movies that were on actual film. Id stay past the credits just to watch the end of the reels, which seemed like wonderful abstract kinetic art. I miss John Bartis, his gallant, gentlemanly manner, his articulate reaction to a play, his endlessly fascinating stories about being on Broadway. I miss stoops. I miss sidewalks. I miss seasons. I miss old-fashioned Hollywood glamor. I miss late-night talk shows where people would come on and tell great stories; theyd be invited because they were interesting, articulate people, not because they had a movie to promote. I miss FM radio when DJs were able to choose whatever they wanted to play. I miss the warm sound of vinyl records. I miss listening to Jean Shepherd tell stories on the radio about his childhood with Flick and Schwartz. I miss hearing Gaye Levine play the cello like a wild woman, improvising and performing without a net, playing as if she and her instrument would spontaneously combust. I miss when newspapers were physically bigger and had more stories that were longer and written with some depth. I miss the seasoned, experienced writers who used to write for the dailies. I miss larger-sized comics in the papers. I miss the old Village Voice. I miss Nora Ephron. I miss sitting around a kitchen table with my brothers, talking and joking. I miss making my sister-in-law Pam laugh. I miss receiving postcards. And letters. I miss you. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Giving your time to help others is fine. But dont lose sight of your own needs. Make plans for an energy-restoring getaway with that very special person in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulate yourself on getting that difficult job done to everyones satisfaction. This could be the first of many such challenges you might be offered down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) With your enthusiasm soaring again, you feel ready to tackle a tough new assignment. Good for you! And remember: Dont be too proud to accept help when its offered. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Cupid rules the week for single Virgos eager to make a romantic connection. Meanwhile, Virgo couples experience renewed commitment in their relationships. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Home and work issues vie for your attention through early next week. Rely on your Libran sense of balance to keep you from being overwhelmed by either side. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creative projects might have to go on standby as you tackle other matters making demands on your time and energy. Things should ease by the middle of next week. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your energies are high, and so are your aspirations. But be careful not to let work dominate the week. Its also important to spend time with family and friends. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Its a good time to set aside your pride and stop nursing those hurt feelings. Instead, consider restoring relationships you want to have back in your life. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might be miffed at not being shown more appreciation for your hard work. But dont brood over it. Recognition comes in its own time and in its own way. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) With your inner creative juices starting to boil and bubble, this is a good time to launch a new arts-related project, or go back and restart the one you had set aside. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cheer up, Lamb. Your emotional impasse will lift once you allow your highly tuned sense of justice to guide you on what to do about an associates questionable behavior. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about a project you hoped to work on might need more clarification. Take nothing just on faith. Draw up a list of questions, and insist on each being fully answered.

NoWhat a stale, sad way to end a trilogy. In The Hangover Part III, the follow-up to the hilarious 2009 original and the hit-and-miss remake/sequel from 2011, an exotic animal is again (remember the tiger?) featured. This time Alan (Zach Galifianakis), an immature goon whose charms were exhausted at the end of the first film, has purchased a giraffe. Alans loving life, listening to Hansons MmmBop while driving on the highway with the giraffe in tow, when the poor animal is decapitated. Seeing a giraffes head fly off its body and into the windshield of an unsuspecting car with children inside isnt funny. Its dumb. And mean (warning animal lovers: dogs and chicken are also murdered). And worse, the gag comes in the beginning and has no context. Its just there to be extreme and stupid and try to make us laugh. Oh, how this franchise has fallen. Unfortunately the rest of Part III doesnt get much better. This is a woefully unfunny, absolutely terrible third chapter of what never shouldve been a trilogy in the first place. Heck, even the sequel wasnt necessary, but at least that was understandable given the success of the first film. But when the sequel met a deserved so-so reaction it was time to leave well enough alone. What we get in Part III plays like writer/director Todd Phillips leftover ideas from his 2010 road trip dud Due Date were thrown into a half-baked script here. With Alans father (Jeffrey Tambor) having a heart attack and dying as a result of the giraffe incident, its decided that Alan should spend time in a mental hospital. The catch is that hell only go if fellow-Wolfpackers Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) tag along. So the boys hit the road, only to be kidnapped by Black Doug (Mike Epps) and a gangster named Marshall (John Goodman, looking unsure of how overthe-top he should take things). A few clever ties to the first film later, Marshall kidnaps Doug and tells Alan, Stu and Phil to bring him Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong), who recently escaped from a Thai prison. Chow is a character best absorbed in small doses, but we get way too much of his manic unpredictability here. Hes essentially a fourth lead character, leaving two of the four characters with the most screen time completely odious. Speaking of Alan, the first time around he was a lovable loser who just wanted to fit in, and he endeared himself to us because of that. Now Alan is a devious misfit man-child who chooses to be a big baby, and as a result is unspeakably insufferable. This change in Alans character is another reason the second film didnt work as well as it could have. Its so obvious The Hangover Part III exists solely for a cash grab that its shameful. The characters are played out and theres no natural direction for the story to go, making it all feel unnecessary. If you spend money to see this youre only encouraging Warner Bros. to make Part IV, and at this point thats a very bad idea.

PAGE 60 NAPLES FLORIDA C12 A&E WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 and crew concentrated, she adds. When Ms. Weinert signed the contract a year ago, she was promised an invitation to watch an exciting part of the filming. They followed through, she says. The movie stars Lori Loughlin (210), Andrew Dunbar (Arrow), Rick Ravanello (Dose of Reality) and Cameron Bancroft (Supernatural). Now called Garage Sale Mystery, it is announced as being based on the first book in a series by Ms. Weinert that will have the name Garage Sale Mysteries. Ms. Weinert, who winters in the Pelican Marsh community of North Naples, says the actors cast in the films key roles fit her vision of her characters very well. I knew from the outset they would gentle my storys cutting-edge reality for the Hallmark family values that their audience expects, but many of my main characters still remain quite recognizable, she says. A Hallmark press release pitches the movie this way: Jennifer Shannon (Ms. Loughlin) can always find a diamond in the rough when it comes to garage sales, that is. Whether its an antique to sell at her consignment shop, an Atari game for her son or a piece of furniture for her handy husband Jason (Mr. Ravanello) to refurbish, she has made a career out of her treasure-hunting prowess. When a string of burglaries hits her town, Jennifers keen eye for detail and her natural problem-solving instincts help her see the connection between the burglaries and the garage sales she frequents. She works with Detective Adam Iverson (Mr. Dunbar) to investigate her theory that the perpetrators of the burglaries are fellow garage-sale regulars. The case escalates to dangerous levels when Jennifer discovers the dead body of her friend, and suspects that her death might be related to the burglaries. With just her treasurehunting skills and problem-solving instincts, Jennifer finds and pieces together clues to the burglaries and her friends death. As she gets closer to the truth, however, she discovers that crime solving can be far more perilous than any garage sale Ms. Weinert flew to Vancouver to watch the filming for four days in late April. Filming took place at an estate in Abbotsford 45 minutes outside the city. The daily grind began with everyone receiving a daily copy of the comprehensive call sheet, she explains. Besides the printed portion of the screenplay being filmed that day (the script), this sheaf of papers details everything from the location address, time, date, weather, set descriptions and the names of cast acting that day to the walkie-talkie channels to be used by different departments, transportation pickup times, and the names of everyone on duty for direction, production, accounting, post production, camera, grips, sound, editing, make-up, hair, costumes, art department, set decoration, props, first aid and food catering. With a glance at the call sheet, you know exactly whos who and whats where for that day, Ms. Weinert says. The Hollywood novice admits that she felt unsure about how this group of smoothly operating professionals might deal with an author like me. Arriving with guarded expectations, she was surprised that everyone swept me into their midst as an honored guest, pointed out my waiting directors chair (with name emblazoned), and treated me royally. She interacted with the cast and crew as often as possible, striving to learn as much as I could about them and their adventures in the moviemaking business. It was a huge surprise when the director invited her to perform as an extra in a garage-sale scene. Because speaking parts fall under a special pay scale, she could only interact silently. Promised that her scene would be saved from the cutting room table, the bit player hopes that Mr. DeLuise doesnt rue that decision as the premiere approaches. Tune in on Aug. 24.

He claims he just thinks of her as a little sister, the lifelong best pal of his kid brother, Lee. But hes been acting weirdly overprotective, scaring away any guy who shows interest in her and even starting fights with those who get too close. An encounter at the school carnivals kissing booth opens Elles eyes to Noahs real feelings about her, and they begin a clandestine relationship. Elle is torn. She hates lying to her friends and family, but she cant give up the way being with Noah makes her feel, even if it means sneaking around behind everyones back and risking losing Lee, her best friend in the world. With secrets and lies piling up, is there any way to navigate this suddenly crazy life without someone getting hurt? The Kissing Booth treads familiar young-adult ground, but does so with an ease that is all the more notable for the fact that the author is a mere 17 years old. This debut novel displays a natural grasp of dialogue and a keen eye for the seismic shifts of teen emotions. Elle is a relatable heroine, sharp and a little sassy without being too glib, and generally honest with herself, even when she makes mistakes. Her enviable bond with her best friend Lee is refreshingly free of romantic angst. Noah is certainly no perfect hero hes got a rough reputation and a hot, often physical temper, and more than once his controlling behavior edges into the disturbing. At least he is called out on his actions, although perhaps not always as firmly as he could or should be. Still, this weighty core helps to ground this otherwise light and leisurely novel, a story about following your heart while not forgetting about your head. Its Local. Its Entertaining. Its Mobile.

Simple signs once used to lure customersCollectors like advertising signs and packages. In the 1950s when restaurants began decorating with old signs, they wanted material from the 19th century with graphics that featured husky women in period gowns and large hats or scenes with horse and buggies, high-wheel bicycles or old cars and buildings. But collectors and their collections got older, and by the 1980s, a younger group was buying advertising from the 1930s to s, with scenes of happy housewives wearing aprons while making cookies with their children or landscapes with new cars, airplanes or trains. While old advertising was expensive and hard to find, s pieces turned up at garage sales and flea markets for very low prices. Today there are collectors who hunt for recent rock posters, advertisements and packaging by artists like Andy Warhol or Peter Max. It is the design that catches the eye and attracts collectors. Some wonder if ads, packages and shop signs are going to be valuable in the future. Go back to the mid-1800s, when store signs often were simply pictures because many people could not read. A cigar-store figure represented a shop that sold tobacco, and a cutout wooden board shaped like a shoe or a red and white barber pole were instantly recognized by customers. These signs are now classed as folk art, and many sell for thousands of dollars. Great graphics that tell a story, products that represent the past, and nostalgia keep advertising collectibles selling well, even though the ads are getting younger.Q: I am a retired U.S. Air Force sergeant. Sometime during my 20 years of service, I received a chrome-plated Camp David Zippo pocket lighter. The front has a black engraving of the camps entryway, with a rope-like circle around the image. I understand it has some value. True?A: Zippo lighters were first made in Bradford, Pa., in 1932. When smoking was more socially acceptable than it is now, lighters were popular souvenirs. The military, as well as U.S. presidents, purchased them to give as souvenirs to servicemen and visiting dignitaries. Camp David was built in the 1930s and was used as a presidential retreat starting in 1942. But it wasnt called Camp David until 1953, when President Dwight David Eisenhower renamed the retreat after his grandson, David Eisenhower. Other marks on your lighter may help you date it. A lighter matching yours, made in 1972, is for sale online with its original box and insert. The asking price is $45.Q: My mother-in-law gave my daughter a vintage dress that has a label inside that says Harvey Berin, designed by Karen Stark.

Clothing stores in the 19th century often displayed a sign that looked like a boot. It was a simple shape to make and easy to understand. This 47-inch-high wooden sign with its old paint sold for $911 at a Garths auction in Ohio. That was twice the presale estimated price.year. This dress was donated to her to use in the musicals. When she retired, she gave the dress to my daughter to wear to the prom. Can you tell us anything about the designer and maker of this dress?A: Harvey Berin started his clothing business in 1921. He is known for his cocktail and evening dresses made from the 1940s until 1970. Berin bought dresses in Paris and had the designs adapted by designer Karen Stark, his sister-in-law. He approved the designs before the dresses were made. First Lady Patricia Nixon wore a gown designed by Karen Stark for Berin to the 1969 inaugural balls. The dress is now in the Smithsonian. Berin closed his business in 1970. Q: I have a blue-and-white ironstone platter with a floral border and a center scene of a horse-drawn stagecoach with several men riding on top. Its marked Coaching Scenes, Made in England by Johnson Bros., a genuine hand engraving, all decoration under the glaze detergent & acid resisting colour, ironstone, Passing Through. I would like to know what it could be worth. A: Johnson Brothers was founded in 1883 in Hanley, England, and is still in business. In 1968 it became part of the Wedgwood Group, which became part of WWRD in 2009. The word detergent is a clue to age. Although the first detergents were made in the 1930s, they didnt become popular until the 1940s. Johnson Brothers introduced its Coaching Scenes series in 1963 and continued producing it until 1999. Dishes were made in blue and white, pink and white and green and white with different center scenes. Passing Through is the name of the scene on your plate. Value of your plate: about $35.Tip: When putting on earrings in front of the bathroom mirror, be sure the sink stopper is closed. Dont risk dropping the jewelry down the drain.

FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 CONTRACT BRIDGEOn a wing and a prayerBY STEVE BECKERMany things in life are taken for granted without giving them much thought. You know that if you drop something heavy, it will fall down, not up; that the sun rises in the east, not the west; and that two and two is four, not five. In bridge, you know that there are 52 cards in the deck, 13 in each suit, and that each player is dealt 13 cards. You dont always need to utilize this knowledge, but its there just the same. Take this deal where West cashes three diamonds and shifts to a trump. Declarer draws trumps and is faced with the task of avoiding a spade loser. It can be seen that if he plays the ace and another spade, he goes down. The planned finesse against the queen goes up in smoke when West shows out on the second spade. But if South plays his cards more carefully, he can make the contract. Before tackling spades, he should cash the A-K of clubs and ruff a club. These preliminary plays pay handsome dividends when South learns that West who is already known to have started with six diamonds and three hearts also started with at least three clubs. It follows, as night the day, that West cannot have more than one spade, so nothing can be gained by cashing the ace of spades first. Instead, declarer should lead the three toward dummys king, hoping that Wests spade, if he has one, is the queen or ten. When West produces the ten, South has no further problem. He wins with dummys king and returns the jack, knowing full well that East has the queen and that the finesse will succeed.

WILFRED SIDNEY BILL TEMPLETON IN MEMORIAMAUGUST 2, 1928-MAY 19, 2013Born in Union Grove, N.C. one of 10 children of Huey and Bertha Templeton. Enlisted in the Navy at 14 during World War II and later served in the Army during the Korean conflict. Bill eloped on June 2, 1945 with the love of his life Anna Jean Baker. They had three children (Stephen, Tony and Pamela), nine grand children (George, Michelle, Shannon, Chance, Courtney, Carlyn, Seth, John Christian and Clayton) and three great grandchildren (Hayley, Jacob and Wyatt). After attending Appalachian State College and Clevenger College of Business Administration he began his over five-decade career in the automobile business at B&L Motor Company in North Wilkesboro, N.C. Mr. Templeton opened his first sole proprietor car dealership, Templeton Oldsmobile, in 1971 in Vienna, Va. He owned several dealerships in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia. The pinnacle of his career was his last automotive endeavor Fort Myers Toyota The Family Store in Florida. Under his leadership, the store became one of the largest in the country. His team won countless awards including the Presidents Award for excellence in all areas of operations and customer service. The Family Store had a major impact on the community. His beloved wife Ann preceded Bill in death last May. They shared a love and talent for golf both winning numerous club championships at Westwood Country Club, Richmond Country Club, Congressional and Longboat Key Club. They traveled the world together. Both were good and faithful servants of their Lord Jesus Christ. Bill and Ann created the Templeton Foundation dedicated to supporting faith-based organizations that spread the love and gospel of Jesus Christ. He served as a trustee on the board of Patrick Henry College and was a dedicated member of First Baptist Church of Sarasota. He also recently formed an entertainment company, Founding Fathers, LLC. His first choice was to make a film about George Washington, who held our forces together to secure our victory in the War of Independence resulting in the miraculous birth of this nation. The project, which will continue, is titled Founding Father. It examines the life of Washington, a man of deep faith, courage and principle. This will be a gift for the people of America, who Bill loved with all his heart. Bill Templeton was a loving generous man who touched countless lives in his time all over the world. He fulfilled a lifelong dream traveling to Israel in April. He shared his beliefs, time, passion and talents freely and will be sorely missed.

People ask me often what they should be looking for when they taste wine. The answer is pretty much the same as what they look for in anything they consume: look, smell, feel and taste. Step 1: Open the bottle. Whether it has a cork or a screw-on cap, right away there are indications of whether the wine is in good shape or not. If there is a cork, examine it after pulling it. There should not be any cracks or mold on the cork, and the end that was facing the wine in the bottle should be discolored, showing that the wine was stored on its side. The cork should smell like the wine. If the bottle has a screw cap, it should be tightly sealed. Step 2: Pour a couple of ounces of wine into the glass. If you are in a restaurant, make sure the server pours enough wine into the glass to allow you to really examine it. I have sampled wine in a restaurant where there was barely enough wine to taste. Dont be afraid to ask the server to pour more. Step 3: Look at the wines color in the glass. Pay special attention to how it looks where it is in contact with the glass. If possible, inspect the wine against a white background to determine the true color and clarity. White wines get darker with age, and red wines lose their purple or red hues and become brick in color. Whatever its hue, it should be clear, not cloudy. Step 4: Swirl the wine in the glass. This aerates the wine, introducing oxygen, which helps it open up. Move the glass in small circles to release the aromas. Look at the side of the glass while swirling. and observe the viscosity. Fuller bodied wines will have more viscosity, and better legs running in rivulets down the inside of the glass. Note: Dont swirl too vigorously or the wine can fly out of the glass. Step 5: Smell the wine by holding the glass a few inches away from your nose while gently swirling, and try to pick out different scents. Then insert your nose further into the glass, and see how the aromas change and strengthen. Take a small sip, and roll it around in your mouth, so that the different sets of taste buds pick up on the flavors. Salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and even umami can be present. Enjoy the mouth feel and judge the wines body, acidity, and the texture in your mouth and on the tongue. The wine should have aromas and flavors you can identify, whether they are fruity, floral, spicy or oaky. (Dont be discouraged when you start. It takes time to learn this part.) Step 6: While lightly swirling the wine in your mouth, inhale slowly as thr ough a straw, and you should get different taste sensations. The flavors you already have picked up on may be more pronounced, and you may discover some new nuances as well. Complex wines will reveal a variety of flavors at various spots on the tongue and mouth (because taste buds register different flavor types). Take into account the age of the wine. Most wine sold today is meant to be consumed relatively soon after purchase. A recent study by the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, a trade group for wine and spirits manufacturers, revealed that in New Jersey, near the beaches, a bottle of wine was consumed on average within 43 minutes of purchase. Hello screw caps! (An excellent closure by the way, and well-suited for wines not intended to age for long periods). Step 7: After swallowing you should have a lingering taste in your mouth, which is the finish. It can be short or long, smooth or acidic, depending on the wine. Tannins taste something like tea leaves, and acidic means the wine has more flavors in common with lemons and grapefruits. This is not necessarily bad. Steaks pair nicely with red wines with tannins, and an acidic sauvignon blanc will pair well with grilled/poached fish with lemon, garlic and white wine. Step 8: Try the wine with some food and notice how the flavors change. Did you enjoy the wine? Consider the aroma, the appearance, the taste, the mouthfeel and the finish. A good wine will be good in all these areas. How do you know if the wine is bad? Is it cloudy? Although there can be some sediment in both white and red wines, the wine itself should be clear. Whites should not be amber/brownish, and reds normally are not tawny colored (except Barolo, it will be brick-red). The wine should not smell bad. If you come across a corked wine, it will smell of mold or damp earth. This wine may be contaminated with trichloroanisole, or TCA, an uncommon bacteria that afflicts some production. If the wine smells like vinegar, dont drink it. If it tastes like sherry or rotten eggs or vinegar, you have a bad wine. Step 9: Practice, practice, practice. The more you do it, the more confident youll feel. b a a h i a Naples Harbour475 North Rd., Naples, FL 34104 (239) 213-1441 Naples Harbour is the best place for your Sunday Brunch Serving 10am 2pmReservations SuggestedEnjoy a complimentary Mimosa or Champagne with Brunch Present this ad and receive a two week complimentary membership to Naples Harbour Omelet StationAn extravagant display of vegetables, meats, seafood and assorted cheesesCarving StationFarmland Hickory Smoked Ham Bu etEggs Benedict Fontanini Sausage Apple Wood Smoked Bacon OBrien Style Home-Fry Potatoes Smoked Salmon Display House Salad Sliced Tomato & Steamed Asparagus Platter Assorted Danish & Croissants NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013

Diners dont even blink anymore when they come upon an Italian restaurant serving sushi. But at Eurasia, the unlikely pairing of Italian and Vietnamese fare has some logic to it, as it represents the native cuisines of the married owners. Chef Ettore Mancini hails from Italy. His wife, who serves as the gracious hostess, has Vietnamese roots, hence the marriage of these two dissimilar cuisines under one roof. The dining room reflects the duality of its menu. It has Italianate features with lots of earth tones, sturdy wooden chairs and tables dressed in crisp white linen. The art work bespeaks the Asian influence, with pieces depicting men in classic conical straw hats rowing small boats, women in colorful native dress and Vietnamese street scenes, along with a couple of cheery red paper lanterns for good measure. On the night of the Kentucky Derby, the TV behind the bar was cranked up, lending a distinctly American soundtrack to the mix. Eurasia, which has occupied this East Naples storefront for several years, clearly has a loyal following. Servers and many customers knew one another, and the chef made a couple of appearances to greet people he knew as well. Still other customers were drinking and/or dining at the bar, chatting with the bartender and keeping an eye on the TV as the derby got under way. It might have been distraction owing to the race, but it took a long time for the bar to produce a simple glass of wine and a vodka and tonic. A glass of the house chardonnay was served properly chilled, but the vodka and tonic was on the weak side. Better was a martini made with Kai lychee vodka. Like the decor, the menu is a mixed bag, with a voluminous selection of Italian dishes and a somewhat smaller, but still plentiful, list of Vietnamese options. Go all Italian, all Vietnamese or mix it up a bit as we did. Start with Vietnamese roasted quail, summer rolls or a crepe (with shrimp, pork and bean sprouts), or go the Italian route with clams casino or oreganato fried calamari or a hot antipasto ($15), which allows you to sample four of the kitchens Italian starters. The antipasto contained two clams oreganato, two clams casino, three baked shrimp and two eggplant rollatini. Although the clams were on the small side, they were cooked properly, the oreganato featuring a topping of garlic-laden breadcrumbs and white wine, and the casino studded with bits of roasted red pepper, garlic, wine and each topped with a large piece of prosci utto that overpowered the clams. The shrimp were moderate in size and somewhat overcooked, rendering them chewy. The rollatini, thinly sliced eggplant wrapped around three cheeses and topped with marinara, were the best of the bunch (the flavorful marinara, however, ran all over the plate, making it messy and not as visually appealing as it might have been). Italian entrees at Eurasia come with small garden salads that are well chilled and fresh. The blue cheese dressing was tangy with good cheese flavor. Shrimp stuffed with crabmeat ($25) featured five shrimp well stuffed with crabmeat and topped with a garlic white wine sauce. The seafood was properly cooked and the sauce worked nicely with both the shrimp and crab. A baked potato (pasta is the other option as a side) was fine. From the Vietnamese selections, I tried the grilled beef with lemongrass (the price of which I failed to note, but I believe was about $15). It came in a large bowl over vermicelli noodles with shredded salad, crunchy bean sprouts, crushed peanuts and a little cup of fish sauce, which is used to flavor many Vietnamese dishes. The ingredients were all fresh and the beef was tender, but the lemongrass which is what makes this dish distinctive was undetectable. The fish sauce added zest, but the dish was disappointing nonetheless. I spied pho the Vietnamese soup that eats like a meal at other tables and would likely try that on a return visit. We concluded the meal with one serving of tiramisu, which is made in house. It was huge and turned out to be more than we could handle after a big meal, but the few bites we did manage were creamy and light, as this dessert should be. Service at Eurasia was much like the food on our night: earnest but spotty. Our server was very attentive at times and all but invisible at others. He never came by to check to see how each course was, and dishes languished on the table well after we were done with them. Getting refills of water proved challenging, too. Despite some rough patches, Eurasia has much to like. The management is clearly interested in pleasing its clientele and apparently measures up, given the preponderance of regulars we encountered. Its also a great spot for vegans and vegetarians, making it a good choice for those who need to accommodate a variety of diets but still want to eat out together. It might seem an unlikely combination, but like the long-married couple that created it, Eurasias cultures meld just fine. KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLY1.
