INSIDE A bank that offers wealth management services to high net worth individuals has released the results of an online survey of 482 millionaires around the country. The results paint a diverse picture of the rich across the United States and in South Florida, highlighting a growing group of young people, women and immigrants who create their own wealth rather than inherit it. Todays wealthy defined as those with assets of $1 million or more are largely self-made, building their bank accounts mostly on their own, according to a press release from BMO Private Bank, which commissioned the survey. Our study has confirmed that the American Dream is alive and well, BMO Private Bank President Terry Jenkins says in the release. It shows that prosperity and achievement are within the reach of all Americans who have the determination to succeed.

At almost 86, my mother cant see anything. But that did not prevent her from watching, as she puts it, the womens and the mens tennis finals in the French Open on her television last week, while the iconic voice of John McEnroe purred away in the background. There, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal triumphed on clay beneath cool, overcast French skies at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris. I know because I tuned in to the live Sunday morning broadcast to see what my mother was seeing without the aid of eyes, in Colorado. Nadal was hammering balls with both forehand and backhand like a machine, a slashing lefty mounted on quick feet in a torso that manages to be both muscular and sinewy at the same time. Tennis is a sport my mother has never played. I doubt shes ever held a tennis racket. But she loves the sound of the action, the often-hushed commentary, the sense of what might be happening the sense that people have reached a pivotal moment. Theyre out there riding solo and trying like hell, and thats something she understands. So it startled me when NBC host Ted Robinson pointed out that Nadal, the greatest player ever to set foot on a clay court, reads self-help books now, apparently to achieve even greater perfection than he already displays. There was a pause after Robinsons comment, while McEnroe, who once won seven Grand Slam tennis titles, looked for something nice to say. Really? he replied, trying to keep any hint of sarcasm out of his voice. That would be pretty hard to do. Now in summer, my mother listens to Colorado Rockies baseball games almost every night, too, because shes a tennis fan by curiosity, but a baseball fan by love of the game. Although she set the record for total number of push-ups without stopping in 1946 at the University of Colorado in Boulder (is that a sport?), her game was always baseball. There, the closest any human has ever come to perfection with a bat is four out of 10. Never mind help self help, steroidal help or any other kind. Baseball is a game of failure. Knowing that, my mothers cowboy father kept some ancient mitts, bats and a couple of balls in the spring house by the cabin where she grew up, on a sprawling mountain cattle ranch 30 miles from town. They all played after supper. In those days she could still see. Her vision, increasingly diminished by retinitis pigmentosa as she grew older, didnt quit her completely until she entered her 40s. By the time she was 10 years old, I suspect, my mothers notion of self help had become inalterable: you helped yourself by helping everybody else around you. Since everybody was always trying to help you, you did everything you could to make sure they didnt have to. On that ranch and across tens of thousands of acres, jobs were not always assigned by gender. My grandfather helped by scrubbing the kitchen and doing some of the cooking. His five daughters helped at various times by riding, building fence, branding and chopping wood, like my grandmother. She helped by cooking on a wood stove in the kitchen for all comers, including guests and cow hands. They also pumped water, maintained gardens and dug potatoes. When my mothers two brothers helped by going off to World War II, it was an almost all-female operation. But my grandparents sent all five of their daughters to college, to the University of Colorado. They thought the girls should be educated in part, I imagine, so that if they wanted to do something besides marry a rancher, they could help themselves to do it. Standing on your own, to them call it self help, call it rugged individualism, call it an education or an attitude or riding the line solo was a cherished virtue. I think my mother likes tennis in part because the players seem to be riding the line solo, too. But she also likes the sound of something she shared with my father, who died 14 years or 14 minutes ago, Im not sure which, and never played tennis or golf but tuned into them, occasionally. He was a curious man, curious about worlds that were not his. Shes a curious woman, which is why she helps herself by reading history and fiction in recorded books from Colorado Services for the Blind. Curiosity, passion those can help you ride solo. But in many ways, my mother is never alone, which is the paradox about people riding solo. In her case, she lives with books, radio and television, her resilient patience, her feisty determination, and her extraordinary ability to think for herself, all the tools of self help. She also lives with the ghosts who remain her loved ones and friends her parents, all of her sisters and brothers but one, and my father, just to start with. Meanwhile, she remains unfailingly cheerful and completely modest about her strengths and her abilities, one of which is the capacity to accept her own failure of eyes. Although she has to rely on my sister and brother-in-law for nearby help, therefore, she keeps that reliance to a minimum by helping herself. She prepares her food each day from her memory of stocked shelves; chooses her clothes each day from her memory of a closet full; conducts a social life each day by remembering 10-digit telephone numbers; and helps herself stay fit by letting down the heavy old treadmill that was my dads and walking crisply for extended periods. All of which makes me conclude that if Rafael Nadal really needs self-help skills, hes not going to get them from a book, or even from a great tennis victory. Instead, he might get them from learning to cope with a weakness or a failure or a handicap. But hows he going to do that by being so good? Maybe he should call my mother, a master of self help. Shes probably available to offer advice or even instruction, should that be necessary. And at no cost except her own experience.

Bluestate Democrats are upset that Texas Gov. Rick Perry dares come and play in their sandboxes, and worse, threatens to poach jobs from their states. The website Politico reports that Perrys attempts to lure jobs to Texas are infuriating to prominent Democrats around the country. Gov. Jerry Brown of California a state that is Perrys foremost target has dismissed Perrys handiwork in scatological terms. Democrats from another target, Illinois, huff and puff about the temerity of it all. He better not take our businesses away, Sen. Dick Durbin warned. He better not or what, exactly? What recourse does Illinois have, except improving its own business environment? Which would mean Rick Perry is good for Texas ... and for Illinois. Perry is exploiting the genius of our federalist system for all its worth. In his business-recruitment trips, accompanied by trash-talking ads and Texas-sized braggadocio, he is subjecting other states to the fire of competition. In an ad in Crains Chicago Business, Perry offered businesses in the state an escape route to economic freedom ... a route to Texas. This is exactly how the Founders imagined the interplay among the states working. The George Mason University scholar Michael Greve refers to the system as competitive federalism. This federalism relies on exit and mobility of capital, and of labor as a means of disciplining government, he writes. Competitive federalism is a terrific prescription for a big, diverse country with a highly mobile citizenry and a national government that responds poorly to democratic demands. Rick Perry may be boastful, but he has a lot to boast about. Texas had a 6.4 percent unemployment rate in April. When President Barack Obama recently made Austin, Texas, his first stop on a trip touting job creation, Perry welcomed him with an ad noting, accurately, Over the last 10 years, Texas created 33 percent of the net new jobs nationwide. Perrys opponents assume that there must be something unfair or wrong about this. Texas, they scoff, is benefiting from an energy boom. Well, states like California and New York also have oil and gas resources, but refuse to exploit them fully for political reasons. Regardless, Texas job growth ranges much more widely than the energy sector. Texas benefits from low tax rates, a low cost of living, light regulation, checks on abusive lawsuits and its status as a right-to-work state. California has none of the above. Although its unemployment rate has been declining, it is still 9 percent, the fourth-highest in the nation. Poaching jobs sounds pejorative, but it amounts to making it easier for people to do business. The waste hauler Waste Connections Inc. moved from Sacramento, Calif., to a location near Houston. Its CEO told the website The Fiscal Times that it took the company 16 months to design and build a new building in Texas, when the permitting alone would have taken three years in California. If blue-state Democrats want Rick Perry to stop bothering them, they should quit whining and start learning from his example. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. GUEST OPINIONStates changes to Everglades restoration puts burden on taxpayers BY RAY JUDAHSpecial to Florida WeeklyThe most deceptive and egregious action against the public taxpayers during the 2013 Florida Legislative session was passage of HB 7065 and SB 768, which amended the 1994 Everglades Forever Act. Rep. Matt Caldwell sponsored HB 7065 under the guise of increasing the sugar industrys funding commitment to Everglades restoration, when in fact his proposed amendment was a smoke screen to ensure that the sugar industry was able to limit or cap its long-term obligation to fund Everglades restoration. The 1994 Everglades Forever Act, which was ostensibly written to restore the Florida Everglades, capped the sugar industrys cleanup costs at $320 million and obligated the public taxpayers for the remainder of the $16 billion restoration project. The so-called privilege tax of $25 per acre that the sugar industry pays to continue its discharge of pollution runoff to the Everglades, as well as the Caloosahatchee and coastal estuaries, amounts to approximately $11 million per year. A truly insignificant sum in contrast to the billions required by the public taxpayers to restore the Florida Everglades. The $25 per acre privilege tax was scheduled to be reduced to $10 per acre in 2017, but the Caldwell amendment extended the $25 per acre to 2026. To the casual observer, it would appear that the legislative action would ensure that the sugar industry continued to help fund Everglades restoration. In actuality, the legislation provided the sugar industry the comfort level or certainty that its long-term funding commitment toward Everglades restoration would be significantly limited in scope. Instead of defending the sugar industry and suggesting that the public taxpayers contribute an even greater amount to Everglades restoration, Rep. Caldwell should have supported an amendment to the Everglades Forever Act that increased the $25 privilege tax. This would have ensured that the sugar industry paid its fair share toward Everglades restoration as opposed to the sugar industry continuing to receive special treatment as the Florida Legislatures favorite welfare recipient and shift the tax burden onto the backs of the public tax payers. Rep. Caldwell is quick to point out that the Everglades Foundation and Florida Audubon supported HB 7065, but the Sierra Club and The Conservancy of Southwest Florida took an opposing position that the legislation did not go far enough to level the funding formula between the sugar industry and the public taxpayers. In fact, the Everglades Foundation and Florida Audubon only struck a compromise to support HB 7065 because Rep. Caldwell was supporting an earlier version of an amendment that would have greatly weakened water quality standards and removed the 1993 Statement of Principles that had been a guide for restoration efforts over the last 20 years. With the objectionable provisions removed in the final draft amendment, the Everglades Foundation and Florida Audubon were in damage control mode and reluctantly accepted the continuation of an inequitable funding formula for Everglades restoration. To put the sugar industrys $11 million annual contribution to Everglades restoration in perspective, Lee County taxpayers pay in excess of $30 million per year to the Okeechobee levy for work by the South Florida Water Management District in the Everglades Agricultural Area to provide drainage and irrigation of the sugarcane fields south of Lake Okeechobee. Lee Countys return on the investment is polluted water, fish kills and harmful algae blooms including red tide. Certainly, the more conservative and responsible approach would be to support public policy that protects the interest of struggling taxpayers and holds the sugar industry accountable for the destruction of precious public resources including the Everglades, Lake Okeechobee, Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers and coastal estuaries. The people have a right to know the truth and it is time for the public to demand that the Florida Legislature represent the public interest and not the special interests. Ray Judah served as a Lee County commissioner for 24 years.

For the fourth consecutive year, Collier County ranks within the top three healthiest counties among Floridas 67 counties. For that, we can thank for our wonderful environment as well as the top-notch health-care organizations we have here including the Florida Department of Health-Collier County, which for more than 13 years has been under the leadership of Dr. Joan Colfer. A state agency operating with funding assistance and space provided by the Collier County government, our local DOH operates 23 programs covering a variety of areas, from HIV/AIDs education and vaccination to Healthy Start for mothers and children. Every service offered reflects the departments mission to protect, promote and improve the health of all Floridians. Many DOH programs put a premium on prevention. Dr. Colfer believes public health should concentrate its education efforts on system change. The department works with land use planners and developers, for example, to promote communities with sidewalks, bike lanes and green space for recreation and farmers markets. Dr. Colfer serves on the board of the Physician Led Access Network, or PLAN, a community-based referral network that coordinates volunteer medical care for eligible low-income adults in need of specialty heath-care services. Over the past 10 years, the PLAN network of providers has served more than 3,000 patients and provided approximately $18 million of care to uninsured individuals in Collier County. Board certified in general preventive medicine and public health, Dr. Colfer was originally licensed to practice medicine in Maryland. Her father was a forensic pathologist and her mother, a nurse. After graduation from Brandywine High School in Wilmington, Del., Dr. Colfer earned a bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Delaware. She earned her medical degree at the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara. Living in Mexico, she saw the difference that basic public health measures such as vaccinations, clean drinking water and a safe food supply can make on peoples lives. This experience led to her interest in a career in public health. After serving her internship at Maryland General Hospital, Dr. Colfer was an OB/GYN resident at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore. She then attended the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, where she earned a masters in public health. She completed a residency in preventive medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.

The Collier County Veterans Council, Naples Airport Authority, Boy Scouts of America-Alligator District, the Museum of Military Memorabilia and the Collier County Freedom Memorial Task Force have organized activities at Freedom Park. Beginning at 5 p.m., Boy Scouts will demonstrate the correct way to fold the American flag. They will also accept worn flags from the public for proper retirement. Ceremonies will begin at 6 p.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance and invocation. Veterans Council President James Elson will present welcoming remarks, and Chas Tatigian will be recognized for his Eagle Scout project, a meditation area with three benches adjacent to the Freedom Memorial. The event will conclude with the dignified burning of worn American flags, performed according to the U.S. Flag Code with an airport incinerator. We encourage the public to bring any American flags they wish to retire, says Art Garrison of the Freedom Memorial Task Force. If someone would like to participate in the ceremony, we welcome him or her to personally present the flag to be retired. We hope people will find the ceremony meaningful, and that this becomes an annual event. The Museum of Military Memorabilia, which is located at Naples Municipal Airport, has been collecting flags that are no longer suitable for display. With the help of the airport authority, the museum has retired almost 3,000 during the past year. Most people know it is improper to display a flag that is worn out or tattered, but few are comfortable destroying an unserviceable flag, says Robert McDonald, who has served as museum president since 2008. We are happy to take part in the Flag Day ceremony and to provide collection services throughout the year. The U.S. Flag Code specifies when a flag is so worn it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed in a dignified manner, preferably by burning.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 For starters, its hotYOU WOULD THINK that cases of heatrelated illnesses heat exhaustion or the more extreme heat stroke would rise this time of year in emergency rooms all over a steamy place like Southwest Florida. And youd be right if the world were suddenly turned on its head, as it was nine years ago when Hurricane Charley left much of the area without electricity in its wake. Charlotte County and Punta Gorda were the hardest hit in that respect. In a period of about five days after the August storm, many of the approximately 1,700 people who visited emergency rooms at Bon Secours-St. Josephs, Fawcett Memorial or the Charlotte Regional Medical Center were suffering from heat-related illnesses, hospital officials reported. But under normal circumstances, overheating is not a malady of the general population. Most victims come instead from the ranks of outsiders, literally construction workers, field laborers, even people who exercise too rigorously. We dont really see a significant change in the numbers of heat-related illnesses here in summer, compared to where I trained in Philadelphia, notes Dr. Timothy Dougherty at Cape Coral Hospital. People here go from their air-conditioned house to their airconditioned car to their air-conditioned office, and back to their air-conditioned house, he explains. If you must be outdoors during the dog days, heres some advice from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention: Limit your outdoor activity to morning and evening hours. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat (also keeps you cooler) and sunglasses and by putting on sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher (the most effective products say broad spectrum or UVA/UVB protection on their labels). If you exercise outside, drink two to four glasses of cool, nonalcoholic fluids each hour. A sports beverage can replace the salt and minerals you lose in sweat. Warning: If you are on a lowsalt diet, talk with your doctor before drinking a sports beverage. Regardless of your activity level, drink more fluids (nonalcoholic). Dont wait until youre thirsty to drink. Warning: If your doctor generally limits the amount of fluid you drink or has you on water pills, ask him how much you should drink while the weather is hot. Dont drink liquids that contain alcohol, caffeine or large amounts of sugar, as they can actually cause you to lose more body fluid. Also, avoid very cold drinks, because they can cause stomach cramps. And should another storm like Charley render areas of Southwest Florida powerless for an extended period this summer, here are some things to keep in mind: Take a cool shower or bath as often as you can. Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. Drape a wet towel around your neck. Keep a spray bottle filled with water nearby and spritz yourself frequently. Slow down. Keep physical activity to a minimum. Keep blinds and draperies closed. Let them see you sweat; its the bodys way of cooling down. Avoid lotions, creams and even antiperspirants. Roger WilliamsMosquitoes WHEN IT COMES TO fauna sexism, among the biggest offenders in North America are the mosquito control districts of Southwest Florida. Theyre anti-female and they have to be. Although the males ignore the opportunity, female mosquitoes consider every person a walking feast of about six quarts of fresh blood served a la carte and help themselves to side orders of blood from domestic pets and farm animals. Cant you hear the buzzzzzzzzz? With the rainy seasons great influx of water comes that other unmistakable sign of summer: the drone of low-flying mosquito control aircraft such as Short Brothers Skyvans (in Collier County), DC-3s, Hughes 500 jet helicopters, Bell Jet Rangers and 407s, serviceable old Hueys sprouting spray booms from port and starboard (in Lee County). Facing off in the battle against biologists, pilots, mechanics and inspectors tasked with the unenviable job of heading out to marshes and wetlands to conduct mosquito counts are the pesky insects themselves: the aggressive and prolific salt marsh mosquito, for example, which comes with a 40-mile wind-assisted range; and the culex nigripalpus, which can breed in salt marshes but needs fresh standing water to multiply (and when it does, it alone can cause West Nile virus). Any fresh standing water in buckets, old tires, bromeliads, troughs, garbage cans, etc. will do for these unpleasant creatures. One problem facing mosquito control districts is regulatory: Public lands cannot be sprayed for adult mosquitoes, and the standard chemical, Abate, can only be used at 50 percent strength when they undertake larvicide on public lands. Thus, the districts are forced to go after adult mosquitoes that have made their way into human territory but only after they receive the calls of irritated residents and can prove to the Environmental Protection Agency that sufficient quantities of mosquitoes exist. Another sign of summer is the essential display of the five Ds of defensive tactics against mosquitoes. Avoid going out at dusk and dawn. Dress in clothes that cover the skin. Drain standing water. And use DEET, the active ingredient in most insect repellents. Just remember: dusk, dawn, dress, drain and DEET. After all, its the two Ss: Summer in the subtropics.

ON THE summer solstice, Friday, June 21, the sun will be at the highest point in the sky, marking the longest day of the year and providing a convenient tool for amateur cartographers and physicists to determine their latitude from any position on Earth without the aid of a smartphone app. For the rest of us, the official start date for the season is largely irrelevant. Summer arrived on that day just a few weeks ago when we stepped out our front doors and took a breath of hot moisture. We smelled it a distinct Florida funk of rotting, cooking, old vegetation making way for the new. We felt it, when the drive to work was smoother and we realized: the kids arent in school, the snowbirds have left, everythings just a bit slower. Here, Florida Weekly offers some insights and advice to help you save a few bucks, stay safe and make the most of this bright and sometimes cruel season. 1 2 3 E s h T Dr. Timothy Dougherty at C ape Cora l Hospita l P eople here g o f rom h ei r ai rco nd it io ne d ouse to t h eir airo n d itione d car o t he ir air-con itioned o ff ice nd b ac k to t h eir i rco nd it io ne d ous e, h e xpl ains I f you must e o utd oo r s durng the do g days, e re s s om e ad vi ce ro m th e Ce nt e r s o r Di se a se Co ntr o l & Pr e v e nti o n : Limit y our outdoor c tivity to mornin g and v enin g hours Drape a wet tow e aroun d y our nec k Keep a spr ay f illed with wa near b y an d s yoursel f f re l y S l ow d Keep p h y activit y t o minim u m Keep and dra p e c l ose d.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 NEWS A9 perature in your home during summer, you save eight percent on your cooling bill. For even more savings, turn the thermostat to 82 degrees when youre away. Turn ceiling fans off when you leave the room. Ceiling fans complement your air conditioner. They create a wind-chill effect on your skin that makes you feel cool. Leaving them running when youre not there is a waste of electricity. A fan that constantly runs adds up. Clean or replace air-conditioner filters once a month, and have your unit serviced every year. Weather strip windows and doors to keep heat out and cool air in. Its summer grill out! Ovens use a tremendous amount of energy. Trade incandescent light bulbs for energy-saving compact fluorescent bulbs. They last about 10 times longer than traditional bulbs and can save you up to $50 in energy costs over the life of the bulb. Check the thermostat on your water heater. Unplug it first. You can set it as low as 120 degrees, the recommended temperature setting according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Wash clothes in cold water. This could save you up to $40 a year. For more savings, use the clothesline. Keep the blinds closed on southern windows to keep the sun from warming the house. If you have a pool, limit the use of the pool pump to six hours a day. Check your water usage by taking the showerhead test: 1. Get a 1-gallon bucket and a watch that counts seconds. 2. Place the bucket underneath the showerhead. 3. Turn the shower on all the way using cold water. 4. Time how long it takes to fill the bucket. If it takes less than 24 seconds to fill a gallon, you do not have the most efficient showerhead because its flow exceeds the recommended 2.5 gallons per minute. If it takes more than 24 seconds to fill a gallon, you have an efficient showerhead. Visit www.lcec.net or www.fpl.com for more ways to save.

Evan Williams Sweet (suite?) hotel dealsSUMMERTIME: TIME to play your local card. Pack your bags. Take a little drive. Pamper yourself at the hotels and destinations other people buy plane tickets to come see. Summer brings lots of opportunity for local residents to treat themselves to a getaway close to home at an area hotel or resort with more availability and lower rates, says JoNell Modys, public relations and communications manager for the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau. Some advice we can offer is to consider a weekday break at a resort. Summer weekends are busy with people coming in from other parts of the state, so theres greater availability and sometimes a rate break on weekdays And it doesnt hurt to ask if a hotel has a Florida residents rate special. Ms. Modys recommends checking out the CVB website for updated deals: www.paradisecoast.com/deals. Athena PonushisBig-screen blockbustersWhat with out-ofschool kids seeking entertainment and the population in general seeking escape from the seasons daily thunderstorms and oppressive heat and humidity, movie theaters throughout Southwest Florida are prepared for summer crowds. (Last summers total box-office revenue in North American was estimated at almost $4.3 billion.) The preponderance of children and teens as ticket buyers also means more family-friendly fare on the silver screen this time of year. During the summer, we dont see a lot of R-rated movies, says Matt Vandemark, general manager of Marquee Cinema in Cape Coral. Witness DreamWorks The Croods (PG, now showing) and Turbo (PG, July 17); Blue Sky Studios Epic (PG, now showing); Disney Pixars Monsters University (G, June 21); Despicable Me 2 from Universal (PG, July 3) and Disneys Planes (Aug. 9).

Thats probably the understatement of the season. In the subtropics, the flora explodes come summer, whether its native and wild or exotic and cultivated. For lawn-care specialists such as Mr. Vanscoy and his crews, such fecundity requires an artful and singular summer response in part because of regulations about fertilizer. Number one, were dancing around rain systems in terms of fertilization and pest management, he says. We have to be very careful. We have to be more mindful of runoff. The city of Naples and all of Lee County have fertilizer restrictions that go into effect: We have a complete ban on nitrogen and phosphorous June 1 to Sept. 30. The goal in integrated land management, which is what GreenCare aims to achieve, is a healthy root system incorporating a variety of plants that can retain water. That benefits everyone Mr. Vanscoy explains, because the converse effect of an integrated system is that it prevents run-off. Paradoxically, the nitrogen/phosphorous ban might not help prevent harmful runoff, in his view. We disagree very strongly with the ban, he says. A properly maintained lawn is the best defense against runoff. In landscaping, if we spoon-feed plants and make sure theyre fed consistently but not overfed, then the root systems can handle fertilization. Thus, nitrogen and phosphorous can help create healthy systems that prevent runoff, and they dont end up in the rivers and bays, he adds. Integrated landscape management means youre assessing and determining what it needs all the time, Mr. Vanscoy says. We keep irrigation in check, mowing in check, fertilizing in check then we have a much healthier landscape. And a more beautiful summer.

Summertime might be downtime for many, but its game time for the Miracle. Its where the pros of tomorrow play today. In that way, minor league baseball is kind of like finding a band before it goes mainstream. You get to say you knew it when Here are a few key dates this season: Saturday, June 29: Meet Mr. Fancy Suit, former Fort Myers sports anchor and current TNT broadcaster Craig Sager, Americas Sideline Reporter who has become infamous for his snazzy sport coats.

Saturday, July 13: Three-time Daytona 500 winner and NASCAR Hall of Famer Bobby Allison signs autographs and poses for pictures at the ballpark. Athena PonushisTime to indulge in literatureI WOULD IMAGINE ALL the long, lazy days hanging out at the pool or in cool empty rooms immune to the blinding heat, reading the great literary classics. In fact, it never happened, not with Ulysses and many other canonical works, but that never stops me from refining my admittedly mostly imaginary summer reading program year after year after year, returning always to dreams deferred as if anew. This summer, for example, I plan to finish reading The Emperor of All Maladies (2010), a comprehensive history of cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee; Just Kids (2010), a Patti Smith memoir; plus a stack of novels, The Names (1982) by Don DeLillo; Journey to the End of the Night (1934, France) by Louis-Ferdinand Cline; The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet (2010) by David Mitchell; and Sentimental Education (1869, France) by Gustave Flaubert. Oh, and William Shakespeare, all of it. (Why the hell not?) Admittedly, there is no way this list will be read in a few short months. With so much not read, you might wonder if I ever finish reading anything and the answer is sometimes. Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles by Ron Currie Jr. and All That Is by James Salter are two great American novels, I think. Each is about love or the in between times without it. And as I now read Stoner (1965) by John Williams, Im starting to see why I think it should have been taught in school and why, in my experience, it was not. Moby Dick (or, The Whale) is also one I finished. Was it worth reading that giant bible? Unequivocally, my God, yes even if I had serious trouble figuring out at least 150 pages of it (just enough to keep reading). I was in constant awe and astonishment for about three months. The scene in which the crew witnesses whales spawning in an isolated ocean pool is just as magical and groundbreaking as anything created in James Camerons Avatar or Stanley Kubricks 001:A Space Odyssey. It was a great three months the perfect amount of time, in fact, to just skip all the other books I mentioned and reread Moby Dick this summer. Evan Williams The joys of summer diningOne of the coolest things about summer in Southwest Florida is that its a breeze to dine out, even at the areas hottest restaurants. You dont have to figure out where youll eat dinner four days hence. When the mood strikes, its likely that most restaurants will not only have a table that very night, they will welcome you with open arms and, in some cases, great specials, too. Restaurateur Tony Ridgway, who owns Ridgway Bar & Grill, Tonys on Third and Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar in Naples, says hes tried all manner of summer promotions but hasnt found them particularly useful for sustaining traffic during the slow months. I dont know of a single restaurant you cant get into even on a Wednesday or Saturday night, he says. I guarantee you can get in at 7:15 in any restaurant I own on any night. I wish that werent the case, but it is. He does offer a prix fixe dinner for $28 at Ridgways and $23 at Bayside. Both include a salad, choice of three entrees and dessert. Another perk that accompanies the vagaries of heat, humidity and the threat of turbulent weather is the generally sunny nature of servers, who are less hurried during these slower months and so have more time to discuss menu and drink options. Our customers love to have their names known, love the bartenders to know what they are drinking, for staff to know what table they like, Mr. Ridgway says. We always offer personal service, but its even better in the summertime. He encourages guests to talk to the servers. Get a server to spend time with you talking about the wine list, talking about the food, maybe helping you discover something new, he says. Weve sure got the time. Keep an eye out for wine dinners and other off-night specials, which abound this time of year. On the flip side, you still might want to call ahead to make sure your intended destination isnt closed for vacation. Karen Feldman 10 Indulge in great reads this summer.

Pollara, a business that offers corporate research for other companies, conducted the BMO Changing Face of Wealth survey March 28-April 11. The study, which has a plus or minus 4.5 percent margin of error, revealed that the wealthy are not just Caucasian males anymore, says Scott Hansen, managing director of BMO in Naples. Not only that, but people think of Naples as a trust-fund town, and it really isnt, adds Mr. Hansen, noting that only 3 percent of respondents said their money came from an inheritance. Allowing that the figure might seem low, Mr. Hansen says, It may be some reluctance of people to say that, he said. People are very close to the vest about those things. Sixty-seven percent of participants in the survey said they mostly generated their own wealth. That answer could be broadly interpreted, Mr. Hansen explains. For instance, it could mean they came from poor beginnings to become wealthy. It could also mean they worked hard to grow a business they inherited, or that they earned a higher education degree not always accessible to someone of lesser means as a springboard to building that wealth. Sixteen percent of the respondents in the survey said their wealth was partly inherited and partly self made. Less than 1 percent indicated their wealth came mostly from a divorce. The survey highlighted the importance of education in attaining wealth, with 54 percent of the respondents reporting they had earned a graduate or professional degree. Thirty-four percent said they had an undergraduate degree, while 8 percent held a high school diploma or less and 5 percent had technical or trade school certification. A higher education is what matters, and personally developing a business of your own is really still working as far as developing personal wealth, BMOs Mr. Hansen says. Steve Watts, one of BMOs Naples customers, moved his family here in 2001. It was lifestyle and other considerations when we first moved here, he says. Its actually worked out better than I expected all the way around for me personally and professionally, and for my children. Mr. Watts developed technology-related businesses, including a chain of wireless phone stores he sold in 2011, and more recently started a home building company, Avant-Garde Homes. Typical of the people surveyed for BMO, he is relatively young at 54, mostly generated his own wealth, was born in the United States and has at least a bachelors degree (in his case, one in economics from Gordon College in Wenham, Mass.). Nearly a quarter of those surveyed were younger than 40 years old. The results also point to immigrants as a major generator of wealth. While 67 percent of those surveyed were born in the U.S., as were their parents, nearly a third were born outside the U.S. or are firstgeneration Americans, with at least one parent born outside the country. A hefty 80 percent of this latter group said their wealth was self made. Women make up roughly a third of the nations wealthy, the survey suggests. Half generated their own wealth, while almost a third said their wealth came mostly from a spouse. The diversity among millionaires and their record of creating businesses shows strength in our economy, Mr. Hansen says. It shows in a small way that manufacturing is coming back in the U.S. and that what we strive to do in our country still works.

Think todays youth dont care about their community? Then you havent heard about the Blue Jean Revolution at Poinciana Elementary School. Fifth-grader Chiara Basso set out to support Humane Society Naples with a plan that invited her entire schools participation as the 2012-13 academic year drew to an end: Students would be allowed to deviate from the school dress code and wear blue jeans once a week in the month of May in exchange for making a donation to the no-kill organization. Chiara put together a proposal that was approved by student council and school administrators. Then, with the help of her friends and fellow animal lovers Hannah Genet and Jania Ramos, they made posters and bi-lingual flyers highlighting HSN shelter pets and had a hand stamp created with the HSN logo so students could prove they had donated for the privilege of wearing jeans. Finally, they manned a sign-in table on Friday mornings in May to share information about the shelter, collect donations and stamp hands. The Blue Jean Revolution raised $615.35 from students who made donations ranging from 1 cent to $1. Even students who werent wearing jeans supported the cause and made donations. Food bank needs helpersThe Harry Chapin Food Bank needs volunteers to help sort, inspect and pack donated food. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and must be able to bend, lift and stand as they move food in a bustling environment. Volunteers work three-hour shifts in the morning or afternoon. Help is especially needed on Mondays and Wednesdays. In Naples, the food bank is at 2221 Corporation Blvd. The Fort Myers headquarters is at 3760 Fowler St.Help is also always welcome at the food banks mobile pantries that distribute food at community centers, schools and partner-agencies throughout the five-county service area.

Golfing events on par to keep on helping Immokalee students SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Immokalee Foundations InterClub Challenge is more than a golf tournament. Its an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people of Immokalee by giving them the chance to advance themselves socially, civically, economically and academically through the programs of TIF.The tournament at The Old Collier Golf Club last month was the first in a series of annual fundraising events designed to provide students of Immokalee with the tools, opportunities and encouragement needed to succeed at each level of their education and in their careers. Joining event chairman Chuck Campbell, who also serves as TIF treasurer, on the 2013 Inter-Club Challenge committee were Kevin Johnson, Mark Lye, Iain Mossman, Joe Zednik, Steve Waugh, Tom Weyl and Harry Debes. Eighteen foursomes from 10 area country clubs, along with the club pros, competed on the course and also enjoyed breakfast, lunch and a raffle (although no one scored a hole-in-one, potential prizes were a Bentley GT V8, a Porsche Cayman and a Rolex). By the end of the day, $154,225 had been raised.This years overall winning team and the womens first-place team were both from Old Collier. The overall team included Richard Stonesifer, Richard Zona, Doug Esson and William OBrien with golf pro Steve Waugh; the womens winning team was Rene Zona, Carrie Scannell, Eileen Golden and Ann Bain with professional Brian Yarusevich. Assisting with the days activities were TIF students and donors who have helped them in their educational endeavors. Four students played the Old Collier course and had the opportunity to interact with their benefactors as well as area golf pros. The four student golfers were: Charity Gonzales, a TIF Take Stock in Children participant and high-school sophomore who dreams of becoming a dermatologist; Gerardo Lugo, another sophomore and Take Stock in Children student; Rolby Seneus, a 2013 Immokalee High School graduate who will study finance at Florida International University; and Elijah Arreaga, another 2013 graduate of Immokalee high, who will study sports management at the University of Florida starting this fall. Corporate sponsors of this years Inter-Club Challenge were Arthrex, Fifth Third Bank, Porsche of Naples and Naples Jaguar, Bigham Jewelers and Kevin Johnson with Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management. Naples Illustrated was the media sponsor. GE Foundation and Caterpillar /Kelly Foundation were corporate matching sponsors.More events on tapParts two and three of TIFs 2013 fundraising triumvirate are the Charity Classic Celebration, which is set for Saturday, Nov. 16, at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, and the Charity Classic Pro-Am tournament taking place Monday, Nov. 18, at Bay Colony Golf Club.

UNDERCOVER HISTORIANRest in peace: Pioneer graves along one of Colliers busiest roadsNext time youre approaching U.S. 41 from Pine Ridge Road, slow down as you drive by the CVS. Youll see something I bet youve never noticed before: right alongside one of the busiest roads in Naples, a handful of tiny white headstones. Its Rosemary Cemetery, designated a Collier County historic landmark in 1993 and restored the following year by the Collier County Museums. The graves originally were near the site of St. Anns Catholic Church in old Naples. Historical records show that in 1931, however, developer E.W. Crayton donated 20 acres of land for the cemetery in return for the removal of the graves from their original property to the then-considered outskirts of town. Those outskirts today are along Pine Ridge Road between the U.S. 41 and Goodlette-Frank Road. This was the towns only c emetery until 1955, w hen Naples Memorial Gardens opened. In her book Naples Past and Naples Present, the late folklorist Maria Stone wrote that the new cemetery was so far out in the country that Mr. Crayton and other authorities were sure the areas earliest settlers would forever rest there in peace. There would be no danger of new development that far away from downtown Naples, Ms. Stone wrote. She also wrote that the cemetery took its name from the pungent rosemary bushes that once grew there. Members of many prominent Naples families are buried in this fenced-in cemetery, including homesteader Madison Weeks, who settled at Gordon Pass. The remains of Bonnie Kirkland, Leonora and Hart Lowe, Ellen Phillips, Mr. H. Youngman and John and Nancy Weeks are there, too, along with roughly 20 people whose headstones are no longer legible. This is according to the 1944 notes of Naples city engineer William Cambier (the namesake for Cambier Park downtown). Ron Jamro, director of the Collier County Museums, says a 1944 county map indicates the graves are located in Lot 51. That same map also shows Plot N for Negro graves that, sadly, are unmarked near the southwest corner of Pine Ridge and Goodlette-Frank roads. This is the location said to house the graves of eight black men who died while building the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, which during the 1940s ran along Goodlette-Frank Road. Unfortunately, there are no records available to prove or disprove this story. Plot W on the 1944 map was paved over and developed. What the map refers to as Unit B the fenced-in parcel with the headstones next to the CVS is all that remains. Unit B, according to museum files, had 109 gravesites and was platted and registered with the county in 1934. Historical records indicate that families of the dead placed coquina-shell or wrought-iron markers at the gravesites when they were moved to this remote area north of town. With the high water table during the rainy season, oftentimes caskets had to be weighed down to keep them from popping back up which ultimately was the reason for its closure. The last interment was in 1947, after which bodies were sent to either Fort Myers or Marco Island, or back north to their hometowns, for burial. Unfortunately, any death or burial records were destroyed by Hurricane Donna in 1960. Because of its remoteness, the 20-acre tract of land was used for dumping trash and also as a hunting ground. Numerous grave markers, all bits and pieces of our local history, were destroyed before a restoration effort began in the 1970s, spearheaded by the North Naples Civic Association. Then in the 1980s, as part of the widening of Pine Ridge Road from two to four lanes, several graves had to be relocated within the cemetery. And in the early 1990s, there was talk of moving the graves yet again so that the desirable piece of land could be auctioned off to the highest bidder for development. How fortunate that County Commissioner Bettye Matthews said it would be better to clean up the area and declare it a site of historic significance. Today, Collier County maintains the cemetery. A formal rededication of Rosemary Cemetery was held on Nov. 27, 1994. At that time, Mr. Jamro remarked that, Development is so rapid here that things can be lost in the blink of an eye The time has come to start protecting these properties and get on with preserving whats left of our heritage. That sentiment is just as meaningful today. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981.

Coupon Expires 6/30/2013Naples Bonita Springs Were all in this together for better health care in FloridaIf NCH is to be a destination hospital and Florida is to be a health-care destination state, we must constantly work to improve the quality of the care we deliver. In that spirit, avoiding harm and preventing complications were the key topics at the recent Florida Hospital Association board meeting I attended. As chair of the Quality Committee, I was honored to report on our states progress. Although we have a ways to go on our journey toward superior quality, Florida has progressed to the rank of 34, according to United Health Foundation. The goal of one leading national program, the Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network (HEN), is to reduce readmissions by 20 percent and preventable complications by 40 percent. Physicians, nurses, hospitals, employers, patients, payers and their advocates, along with the federal and state governments, have joined together to form the Partnership for Patients. One of four mandates of the FHA Quality Committee is to increase participation in this HEN program among the approximately 310 hospitals in Florida, of which 219 are acute care hospitals. Right now, 107 Florida hospitals, including 13 that are not FHA members, participate in at least one HEN initiative. Only 26 Florida hospitals participate in all 10 initiatives, with improvements centered on avoiding medication errors, venous thromboembolism, pressure ulcers, falls, early elective deliveries, readmissions, surgical site infections, ventilator-associated pneumonia, central line-associated blood stream infections and catheterassociated urinary tract infections. FHA has 205 members, including a few psychiatric and rehabilitation hospitals; we would like all of Floridas hospitals to join in best practices and benchmarking to learn and compare, respectively. On a more positive note, Floridas hospitals decreased mortality nearly 36 percent from March 2011 to July 2012. An independent statistical study showed the improvement in clinical outcomes resulted in 89 lives being saved, 165 complications avoided, with 20 of 23 postoperative outcomes being improved. Surgical site infections are down nearly 16 percent over the same time period. These positive changes led to expense savings of $6.6 million. Florida is doing particularly well avoiding central line-associated blood stream infections and catheter-associated urinary tract infections, with most other areas moving in the right direction. Our second Quality Committee mandate was ensuring that hospital CEOs lead the initiative to higher quality and safety. Leadership also means emphasizing our third mandate: transparency and information sharing with all key constituents, including patients. The age of Dr. Marcus Welby paternalism is long gone; we must share information and knowledge quickly and understandably. This leads to the fourth and final mandate: encouraging all of Floridas hospitals to share data so that we all might improve together. One tried-and-true business maxim is that, What gets measured, gets done. In health care, we say, If youre going to be naked, youd better be buff. (Literal translation: The spotlight of transparency should make us all perform better.) Florida hospitals arent competing with each other, but rather are compet-Anti-smoking drug shows promise for treating alcoholismA study by scientists at the National Institutes of Health shows that the smoking-cessation medication varenicline, which is marketed under the name Chantix, could be a viable option for the treatment of alcohol dependence. The study found that the drug significantly reduced alcohol consumption and craving among people who are alcohol-dependent. The findings were published online in the Journal of Addiction Medicine. Current medications for alcohol dependence are effective for some, but not all, patients. New medications are needed to provide effective therapy to a broader spectrum of alcohol dependent individuals, says Kenneth Warren, acting director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, which is part of NIH. Drinking and smoking often cooccur, and given their genetic and neurochemical similarities, it is perhaps unsurprising that a smoking cessation treatment might serve to treat alcohol problems, notes lead author Raye Litten, Ph.D., associate director of the NIAAA Division of Treatment and Recovery Research. Compared with placebo, varenicline significantly reduced measures of alcohol use. For example, the percentage of heavy drinking days per week decreased nearly 22 percent in the varenicline group. The NIAAA is the primary U.S. agency for conducting and supporting research on the causes, consequences, prevention and treatment of alcohol abuse, alcoholism and alcohol problems. Additional research information and publications are available at www.niaaa.nih.gov. allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org Surviving an affairPsychiatrist debunks the myth that cheating dooms a marriage SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Infidelity has unsavory associations for most of us. We think of adulterers as self-centered narcissists, raging sex addicts or lying philanderers. But the surprising truth about infidelity is this: Most affairs take place between two otherwise responsible, respectable people who had absolutely no intention of cheating. Yet, up to 40 percent of marriages are rocked by affairs every year. And time is no buffer. The chances of cheating go up each year youre together. Among the 60-and-older crowd, 28 percent of men and 15 percent of women have had at least one indiscretion. Why do happily married men and women cheat despite knowing the devastation it will leave in its wake? And what happens once the affair is exposed? Can couples re-establish trust after betrayal? According to psychiatrist and relationship expert Scott Haltzman, author of The Secrets of Surviving Infidelity, the answers to the first two questions are complicated. But the response to the last one is clear: Yes, the relationship can survive and even thrive once the couple moves from understanding to apology and forgiveness. In his just-released book, Dr. Haltzman examines why people stray from the psychology of desire to the neuroscience behind infidelity and presents a breakthrough medical explanation, flame addiction, for the behavior of the cheating partner (though it doesnt excuse philandering or poor impulse control). Then he helps couples tackle the what now? Dr. Haltzman has been married for 25 years. He is on staff at the David Lawrence Center, is a distinguished fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and a former clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at Brown University. He is also the author of The Secrets of Happily Married Men, The Secrets of Happily Married Women and The Secrets of Happy Families. Here he shares some of his thoughts about his newest book: Q: Why did you write this book? A: I didnt set out to write about infidelity. My passion was in discovering the secrets of couples who have healthy, happy marriages. I wanted to learn about how they deal with roles, conflict, sex and companionship. As I gathered more and more information from married men and women, I kept running up against this common event that seemed to affect so many relationships: infidelity. As I began to learn more about the subject, I realized how lost people feel when they have an affair. I was very lucky to be mentored by some of the worlds experts in infidelity, but was unable to find one consistently good book to refer couples to for help through this life crisis. Around the same time, Johns Hopkins University Press had begun looking for an author to write about infidelity because they also saw the need for such a book. Q: Who should be reading this book? Is it for the person who has been the victim of infidelity, or for the perpetrator of the affair? A: The book is for both! I wanted to be able to explain both sides of the story. Generally, people have an appreciation for the emotional toll of someone who has been cheated on, but those who have committed affairs also have deep emotional effects from their own behavior. Q: No one likes cheaters. Do they really deserve empathy? A: Its easy to paint the unfaithful partner as evil or bad, but many people who have affairs are genuinely good people who have done a genuinely bad HEALTHY LIVING Scott Haltzman, MDSEE AFFAIR, A15 SEE WEISS, A15

Rather than being actively on the prowl for a good time, most people who commit adultery do so by a series of small steps. First, intimate conversations increase the sense of comfort between two people. Then, a growing sense of closeness draws the two people together. Eventually, that emotional connection can result in a full-blown affair. Q: Is there one secret that will help guide couples through an affair? A: Affairs are all about secrets; people dont want to reveal that affairs have happened to them. Consequently, any of your neighbors or friends may be involved in infidelity issues at this very moment, but youd never know because its not something people talk about. The main secret is that people can survive infidelity. People believe that if an affair ever happens, the marriage is doomed. But more than half of all couples choose to keep moving forward, after an affair. Remarkable! Couples that dont give up on each other often can find ways to grow and strengthen their marriage. Q: Whats the definition of infidelity? A: Traditionally, researchers have taken a rather narrow view of infidelity: when a married individual has sex with someone other than a spouse. But the definition has broadened in recent years. One example of unfaithfulness is when a married individual has a secretive emotional connection with someone to whom he or she has a sexual attraction. Ive counseled people whose partners have discovered hundreds of non-work text exchanges between their spouse and co-worker, and yet the offending spouse insists, Since weve never had sex, there was no affair. In my opinion, these intimate exchanges over a long period of time with someone outside the marriage constitute an emotional affair, which can have devastating effects on the marriage if it is not addressed. Q: Are there specific things that a couple can do to rebuild a marriage after an affair? A: The most common question I get when couples come in to my office is, What should we do? There are four vital steps: Stop the affair. Cut off all communication with the affair mate. Eliminate all secrets between husband and wife all e-mails, texts, voicemails and bank accounts should be open to both sets of eyes. Initiate a Do ask, do tell policy. The unfaithful spouse must openly answer all questions posed by his or her partner about the affair. Affairs are built on lies; the main thrust behind all of these steps is to reestablish trust. It takes time, and sweat and tears, and the commitment to ride through some very difficult times. Its definitely not for the timid-hearted. Q: Can couples ever really recover after an affair? A: Couples can recover when they share in an understanding of what caused the affair, open their communication and know the steps to take to rebuild trust and bounce back. There is hope. ing to serve our patients with better qualit y so that we a void harm and prevent complication. We have much work to do, but we are talking, raising awareness, educating, sharing best practices and providing feedback. These activities are all part of the cycle that is gaining momentum and that will move Florida up the rankings for quality of life.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA16 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 Very personal hygieneOrestes De La Pazs exhibit at the Frost Art Museum in Miami in May recalled Chuck Palahniuks novel and film Fight Club, in which lead character Tyler Durdens principal income source was making upscale soap using discarded liposuctioned fat fetched from the garbage of cosmetic surgeons (thus closing the loop of fat from rich ladies recycled back to rich ladies). Mr. De La Paz told his mentor at Florida International University that he wanted only to display his own liposuctioned fat provocatively, but decided to make soap when he realized that the fat would otherwise quickly rot. Some visitors to the exhibit were able to wash their hands with the engineered soap, which De La Paz offered for sale at $1,000 a bar. The entrepreneurial spirit As recently as mid-May, people with disabilities had been earning hefty black-market fees by taking strangers into Disneyland and Disney World using the parks own liberal disability passes (which allow for up to five relatives or guests at a time to accompany the disabled person in skipping the sometimeshours-long lines and having immediate access to the rides). The pass-holding guide, according to NBCs Today show, could charge as much as $200 through advertising on craigslist and via word-of-mouth to some travel agents. Following reports in the New York Post and other outlets, Disney was said in late May to be warning disabled permitholders not to abuse the privilege. After setting out to create a protective garment for mixed martial arts fighters, Jeremiah Raber of High Ridge, Mo., realized that his groin protection device could also help police, athletes and military contractors. Armored Nutshellz underwear, now selling for $125 each, has multiple layers of Kevlar plus another fabric called Dyneema, which Mr. Raber said can resist multiple shots from 9 mm and .22-caliber handguns. He said the Army will be testing Nutshellz in August, hoping it can reduce the number of servicemen who come home with devastating groin injuries. Ambulance-chasing lawyers are less the cliche than they formerly were because of bar association crackdowns, but fire truck-chasing contractors and public adjusters are still a problem at least in Florida, where the state Supreme Court tossed out a -hour time-out rule that would have given casualty victims space to reflect on their losses before being overwhelmed by home-restoration salesmen. Consequently, as firefighters told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in May, the contractors are usually right behind them on the scene, pestering anxious or griefstricken victims. The Sun-Sentinel found one woman being begged to sign up while she was still crying out for her dog that remained trapped in the blaze.

Admission is free for everyone. Pack a picnic lunch and stay for the whole afternoon. Call 597-3148 or visit www.ymcapalms.org. Good for the grill Flipping burgers one at a time with a standard spatula can be kind of a grind at the grill. Dadll thank you when he can do a whole batch at the same time with this nifty non-stick grill basket from Cuisinart. Its $13 at Sears (checkout the latest in gas grills while youre there). Tool time If Dads a pro at DIY projects, no doubt he has all the tool to make quick work of anything on a honeydo list. But does he have what it takes to keep those tools handy and organized? If not, hell love this heavy-duty, two-in-one tote from DeWalt. The top compartment is great for power tools; the bottom portion has removable dividers so Dad can create customized storage for all the tools of his trade. We scored it for $29.99 at Sunshine Ace Hardware. In step, in style If Dads a basic khaki kind of guy, surprise him with a pair of Sperry Top-Siders in a bold new color. And dont worry: He doesnt have to be a boater to appreciate the classic footwear. Nordstrom at Waterside Shops has several styles starting at $95. Up in smoke Our friends at Marcus Daniel Tobacconist on Eighth Street South tell us theyve just received a shipment of the newly released (and extremely limited) We The People cigars. Made by hand in Miami, the only component of the cigars thats not American is the tobacco itself, which grows 10 degrees north of the Equator. Sold individually or as a custom box set for $189. Go ahead, light Dad up. The eyes have it Show Dad how bright his future is by giving him a new pair of shades to see him through summer and beyond.

Its a wrap If he has a flair for fashion, Dad will know just how to wear this triple-wrap leather bracelet with a sterling silver clasp by John Hardy. Saks Fifth Avenue at Waterside Shops has it for $295, along with lots more great jewelry and accessories for great guys. (P.S. While youre at Waterside Shops looking for the perfect gift for Dad, you might as well do some shopping for yourself, right? Spend $500 and take your receipt to the mall management office, and theyll give you a chefs apron and barbecue mitt. Not that were suggesting you could regift Dad, but ) All tied up Josephs Custom Clothiers brings back a Fathers Day promotion that proved a big hit last year: For every tie and shirt sold through Fathers Day, the shop at Naples Bay Resort will make a donation to the charity of the shoppers choice (Dads favorite cause would be a good choice). For every tie sold, the stores donation will be $25; a custom shirt will mean $100 for a charity. Call 530-0070 for details. Paddle power If its been ages since Dad has gotten off the couch and tried something new outside, consider taking him out for some standup paddle boarding (SUPPING, to those in the know). Its not nearly as difficult as it looks (given light wind and no chop on the water). Hourly rentals are readily available and not that expensive from Marco Island to Fort Myers Beach (just Google it). If he likes it enough, maybe youll get him his own SUP board for Christmas. Its about time So youre finally making enough dough that you dont need to ask Dad for help with your bills. Now tell him how much you appreciate all the times he stood by, at the ready with whatever you needed. Nothing could say that better than a Patek Philippe timepiece. Rest assured, hell think of you with pride and joy every time he checks his watch. Yamron Jewelers at Waterside Shops has the Calabrava Collection, starting at $29,000. Give hope An e-mail from Hope for Haiti suggested what we think is the ultimate gift for any dad who has been lucky enough to raise happy, healthy children. The message told the story of a family in Les Cayes, home to Hope for Haitis headquarters, whose father desperately wanted to help his diabetic 9-year-old daughter. She was suffering because he could not afford health care for her until he found Hope for Haiti. Every week for several weeks, the father and daughter visited Hope for Haitis infirmary, where she received free medication and supplies and he received education about understanding and managing her chronic condition. Now that her disease is control, their trips to the infirmary are less frequent. Wouldnt a gift to Hope for Haiti in honor of your father this Fathers Day make him proud? Call 434-7183 or visit www.hopeforhaiti.com. Compiled by Cindy Pierce NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE Unconventional treatments Researchers writing recently in the journal PLoS ONE disclosed that they had found certain types of dirt that contain antimicrobial agents capable of killing E. coli and the antibiotic-resistant MRSA. According to the article, medical texts back to 3000 B.C. mentioned clays that, when rubbed on wounds, reduce inflammation and pain. Researchers writing in May in the journal Pediatrics found that some infants whose parents regularly sucked their babies pacifiers to clean them (rather than rinsing or boiling them) developed fewer allergies and cases of asthma. (On the other hand, parental-cleansing might make other maladies more likely, such as tooth decay.) Leading economic indicators Until recently, apparently, gene mutations were considered merely freaks of nature, but that was before Myriad Genetics obtained binding U.S. patents for mutations it discovered now known as BRCA-1 and BRCA-2. Those mutations were in the news in May when actor Angelina Jolie announced that she had chosen to have a double mastectomy based on the presence of the cancer-causing mutations, which she had learned of through a Myriad Genetics test costing about $4,000. There is no price competition for the test, due to the patent, and Ms. Jolie, along with oncologists and OB-GYN doctors, fret that the test is too expensive for tens of millions of women around the world whose lives could be saved by knowing their status. Archeologists discovered in May that a construction company had bulldozed 2,300-year-old Mayan ruins in northern Belize simply to mine the rocks for road fill to build a highway. A researcher said it could hardly have been an accident, for the ruins were 100 feet high in an otherwise flat landscape, and a Tulane University anthropologist estimated that Mayan ruins are being mined for road fill an average of once a day in their ancient habitats. Said another, (T)o realize that Mayans created these structures using only stone tools and then carried these materials on their heads to build them and then that bulldozers can almost instantly destroy them is mindboggling. Fine points of lawA woman in Seattles Capitol Hill neighborhood reported to a local news blog in May that she had seen (and her husband briefly conversed with) a man who was operating a drone from a sidewalk, guiding the noisy device to a point just outside a third-floor window in a private home. The pilot said he was doing research and, perhaps protected by a 1946 U.S. Supreme Court decision, asserted that he was not violating anyones privacy because he, himself, was on a public sidewalk while the drone was in public airspace. The couple called for a police officer, but by the time one arrived, the pilot and his drone had departed, according to a report on the Capitol Hill Seattle blog.

First came Ned, a Shetland sheepdog whos bright but a little on the shy side. Then Riley, an outgoing, bouncy retriever puppy Im raising for friends. While most of what I do with puppies involves socializing them to new people and places, sights and sounds, I also lay a foundation for a lifetime of learning by setting limits and by teaching a few basic behaviors in a way that makes it clear that training is fun. To get that latter idea across, the tool I reach for is what trainers call a clicker. It doesnt look like much, but its an object that seems to possess a magic power when it comes to building a good relationship with an animal any animal. To the untrained eye, a clicker is a small plastic box that fits in the palm of your hand a childs toy thats also called a cricket. To make the noise, you press down on the metal strip inside the housing and quickly release it click-click! Of course, the clicker itself isnt magic. What it provides is timing it allows a trainer working with a dog who understands the game to let the pet know that the behavior hes doing right now is the one thats being rewarded. And that means the behavior will be repeated. The clicking noise becomes a reward because in the early stages of training, the sound is linked to the delivery of something a dog wants most usually, a tiny treat. You start by teaching your pet that a click means a treat. Pick a time when your pet isnt sleeping (not just after a meal) and is a little hungry (a couple of hours before a meal). Choose a relatively small, quiet place you can work without too many distractions, and prepare a pouch or bowl of tiny, yummy treats (diced hot dogs are popular, as are pieces of cheese or even bits of kibble). For the next few minutes, click and treat. One click, one treat. Again and again and again. Eventually, your pet will show you he understands that the sound means food. For example, he may look immediately to the source of the treats after hearing the click. When that happens, youre on to the next stage. But wait until your next session, because clicker training works best with a couple of short sessions less than 10 minutes every day. When youre all set up again, sit quietly with your clicker and treats and wait. Your dog should start volunteering behaviors, everything from sitting to pawing to wandering in a circle. When your pet chooses one you like, click, treat and wait again. Your dog will initially be confused, but should eventually offer the behavior again. Be patient! When that moment comes, click, treat and wait again. Say you clicked your dog a couple of times because he finally got bored and sat. Soon your dog will sit to test his theory that sitting means a click-treat. When that happens, click and jackpot him with a handful of treats. When the pattern is firmly established, you can then give it a name (sit) and make the food reward more random to strengthen it (this is the same principal that keeps you pulling the slot machine handle). In future sessions, youll move on from the sit that your dog knows, waiting for more behaviors to click, treat and name as you build your pets repertoire of commands. More complicated behaviors are trained by chaining training in segments and putting them together. One more thing: Never punish your pet for not getting it right. Clicker training is all about the payoff, and once you get it mastered, theres no end to the things you can teach your dog to do. And thats true no matter if your puppy is big or small, outgoing or shy. In my house, both Ned and Riley, although very different puppies, are thriving as they learn that training is fun. Puppies thrive when they find training rewarding, allowing you to build a strong and loving relationship from the beginning. >>Kandy is a 2-year-old Chihuahua mix whos as sweet as, well, candy.

Southwest Florida doesnt really get typical recognizable seasons because there arent major weather changes to break things up. Thats why Christmas dcor debuts jarringly and dazzlingly in our local stores in late August, while pretty pastel Easter baskets hit the shelves with bang in January. With no autumn chill in the air or melting snow come spring, we need thoughtful retailers and their helpful merchandise to remind us of which season is right around the corner. Meanwhile, I have what I call my Diva Calendar, which nicely divides things up according to parties October: Zombie and Halloween parties November December: Christmas parties and office parties January May: Fancy black-tie fundraising parties June July: Birthday parties August September: Indoor, airconditioned parties only Anyhoo, here we are in birthday season, a time that reminds me that every single person Ive ever known was born in either June or July including moi. And while theres nothing more I love than a good party, Im getting to the age (dont ask just know that I am still younger than Sarah Jessica Parker, Johnny Depp, Demi Moore and a LOT of other people but just barely) when Im thinking we need only celebrate milestone birthdays in a big way. In other words, its great when an acquaintance turns 43, however while I think thats worthy of a Happy Hour gathering at a local watering hole involving a few close friends, I dont believe 43 is worthy of renting a venue, hiring a DJ and requiring cocktail attire and expensive gifts from guests. The rule should be that after 30, we get parties in fiveyear increments and after 50, sparkly soirees should be thrown every 10 years. Of course, after 80, one should totally have a giant bash every single year with rivers of Veuve Clicquot, caviar and plenty of pricey gifts galore. I am in no way eschewing parties my dear readers know I love parties, but darlings, lets just have a drink and toast to another year. Which is, in fact, exactly what I plan on doing on my birthday at the end of this month. Although next year, I will definitely be expecting some Veuve Clicquot ( ssssshhhhhhh tell no one). Scoring the sparkleHeres an excellent reason to pop the cork on some champagne: Jewelry designer Mark Lorens Ring Within Reach contest at his gallery at the Mercato in Naples came to an end last weekend when four contestants stood for hours, each one keeping a hand on a diamond engagement ring. Three valiant contenders held for as long as they could, but after 20 long hours, Nathan Gates, a house painter from Bonita Springs, was the last one standing. Nathan not only won a $10,000 ring, he won the girl, too. When he proposed to his girlfriend, Corrie Perkins, immediately after the contest, she accepted on the spot. Congrats to the happy couple!UNIT AA is for absolutely fabulous when it comes to world-renowned artist Marcus Jansens hip new gallery near downtown Fort Myers on Evans Avenue. Marcus has not only been featured at Art Basil in Miami, his art work graced a limited edition bottle of Absolut vodka. I had the best time at his gallery on Friday as he debuted his most recent paintings. As if that werent enough, metal artist Jonas Stirner, who worked for years on Captiva with Robert Rauschenberg, was also represented at this fabulous night of local art stars. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B4 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 IMAGINE THE WORLDS ENTIRE SUPPLY of gold (roughly 170,000 metric tons) melded into a cube with 68-foot-tall walls and sitting comfortably within a baseball infield. Thats how billionaire investor Warren E. Buffett described it, writing in a 2011 report to shareholders. He added, At $1,750 per ounce golds price as I write this its value would be $9.6 trillion. Golds value on the stock market had nearly doubled in the three years before Mr. Buffett wrote that, driven by investors who bought it as a kind of insurance against economic collapse, said Southwest Florida business owners who follow the industry closely. The gold price bubble became even larger as people looking for quick cash to make ends meet found an answer in their old jewelry, and a growing number of businesses to oblige them. Gold parties for the same purpose were thrown at private homes, recalls Steve Duke, owner of Westchester Gold & Diamonds in Port Charlotte. We had three or four years of just enormous growth, Mr. Duke explained. And then it dropped back down to more realistic numbers. The parties have abated and some local cash-for-gold businesses have closed or are scaling back. The precious metal has been trading around $1,400 per ounce. Leif Metsch of Leifs Coin & Jewelry in Naples noticed that a gold-buying business down the street from him had closed. Although the rush helped his business, he was prepared for a fall after seeing past ups and downs. Years ago, I made sure buying gold was not necessarily my number one business, Mr. Metsch said. I never thought it would last as long as it did. Southwest Florida residents have cashed in so much old jewelry, surmises Richard Estelle of E-Z Cash for Gold in Fort Myers, that personal supplies are dwindling.

Japan cannot solve its many troublesThough small in area, Japan is very important and powerful in the worlds economic scene. Its the worlds third largest economy, boasting the second largest equity and government bond markets. The yen is one of the top three traded currencies. The underpinnings of this economic powerhouse are both complex and troubling. For some savvy investors, Japan is more troubling than the EUs southern members, which are tied to a strong Germany. Japans economy reached its nadir in 1989/1990 when its equity and real estate markets peaked. Since then, Japan has experienced a recurring on-and-off deflation over 15 years. At one point, the Japanese equity market was down 75 percent from 1989s peak value. Japan, formerly an export behemoth, now suffers trade deficits as other Asian countries have learned to beat Japan at the export game (i.e., cheapening their currencies and making better products.) In April 2011, Japans misery worsened. A tsunami hit the island-nation and created a nuclear power plant disaster. Post tragedy, all other nuclear reactors were closed and Japan had to turn to natural gas imports for fuel for electric power plants. Unlike the U.S., which domestically provides much of its energy needs, Japan has no oil or natural gas. Since 2011, Japans power plants have been forced to use imported liquefied natural gas as an alternative to nuclear. Japans import price is five to six times the cost of U.S. domestic natural gas. This importation has weighed heavily on its economy and trade balance. Japans woes are not isolated to its economics. It now faces military threats from China claiming nearby islands. Conveniently, much of Chinese claiming is for islands in oil rich waters.As of September 2012, new Japanese political leadership undertook massive fiscal, monetary and GDP growth initiatives to reverse misfortunes. The changes come after 20-plus years of central bank/government failure to roll out aggressive, curative policies and after years of corporate refusal to recognize large asset losses on their balance sheets. For free markets to work, clean books are needed. Smoke and mirrors accounting constrains business. All that aforementioned is not the worst of it. Japan has terrible demographics that are inextricably tied to its finances. Japan is skewed to an aging population: the current ratio of six workers for every two retirees will change to three workers for two retirees by 2032 Japans retirement investments are heavily weighted in Japanese Government Bonds, or JGBs. Japans core JGB buyers are maturing into JGB sellers. Such liquidation creates difficulties for a government that runs massive budget deficits and sells JGBs to fund deficits. In the budget for the year that ended in March, and across central and local governments, total government spending on pensions, health care, nursing care and family benefits was 124.5 trillion, or 26.1 percent of GDP, read the article Once More with Feeling in the May 18 issue of The Economist. But government revenue amounted to only 59.2 trillion, or 12.5 percent of GDP. Borrowing largely made up the difference. Stabilizing Japans national debt requires moving from a deficit before interest payments of 8 percent to a surplus of 3.2 percent. A doubling of the consumption tax, to 10 percent, is planned for 2014-15. But with a shrinking workforce having to support a growing number of elderly, the necessary swing is simply too big for any plausible mix of tax hikes and spending cuts to deal with. U.S. citizens are concerned that our issued federal debt is 135 percent to GDP; Japans is at 235 percent of their GDP! Which foreigners will buy JGBs if the yen continues to fall and their interest rates are rising? (The yen is down 21 percent from September 2012 through mid-day June 10.) Quite a conundrum. Some investors point to the booming Japanese equity and global equity markets as proof that Japans new programs are working, as equity markets moved up 80 percent from fall 2012 through June 5. Or, were the stock gains attributable to the flow of dollars out of JGBs and into worldwide equities? Maybe the yen carry trade is back in full force. (i.e., borrows yen at low Japanese rates; sell yen; and buys other currencies/assets with higher yields.) That Japan has taken the QE experiment into the stratosphere is not lost on George Soros, the most noted currency speculator. Per an interview in early April on CNBC, Mr. Soros said, What Japan is doing right now is actually quite dangerous because they are doing it after 25 years of just simply accumulating deficits and not getting the economy growing, he explained. So if what theyre doing gets something started, they might not be able to stop it. If the yen starts to fall the fall may become like an avalanche. The statement is not lost on investors who have seen a fall in the Nikkei of approximately 15 percent by mid-day June 10, having recovered from a loss of 20 percent in a mere 11 trading days ended June 5. Long term, there is no stopping the math that compounds JGB interest as budget deficits continue. There would have to be astronomical growth in its GDP and tax receipts to create a more sound financial outlook for Japan.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Match and OutperformIt might seem smart to trust your money to professional mutual fund managers, letting them decide what to invest it in. But consider: Most managed stock mutual funds tend to underperform the overall stock market average. Many charge steep loads (sales fees), sometimes topping 5 percent. More standard is the annual expense fee, which is typically around 1 percent to 2 percent. Even that can significantly hurt your performance. Many fund managers are eager to attract more investment dollars to boost their fee income. But as a fund grows bigger, with more money to invest, its more likely to park some in less promising investments and to have its overall performance suffer. Fortunately, instead of ending up invested in funds that lose to the market, you can choose to match the market average. Invest your long-term money in index funds designed to track the performance of a broad market index, such as the S&P 500 or the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000. The S&P 500 is an index of 500 leading companies in America. The Dow Jones Wilshire 5000, a whole market index, contains almost every U.S. stock. There are even broader indexes, such as the FTSE Global Equity Index, which includes more than 7,400 securities in 47 different countries and tracks about 98 percent of the worlds investable market value. Investments such as the Vanguard Total World Stock Index ETF will easily park you in it. Index funds usually have extremely low fees sometimes less than 0.20 percent (thats a fifth of 1 percent). Theres little turnover within them, too, so commission costs are minimal. Best of all, investing in index funds is simple, taking very little time or energy. Once youve invested in them, you can forget about them (ideally adding money regularly, though). However the stock market performs in the coming years, your index fund will roughly track that. Learn more at indexfunds.com and fool.com/ mutualfunds/mutualfunds.htm, or read Common Sense on Mutual Funds by John C. Bogle (Wiley, $20). Reverse GrowthMy dumbest investment would be when I rolled over about $30,000 worth of retirement account money to Fidelity years ago. A perky young fellow from Fidelity strongly encouraged me to invest in its Growth Company Fund. This was back in January 2000, before so many growth stocks tanked. Ironically, I did sense that many tech stocks were due to crash and burn, but I didnt bother to check what the fund held. I assumed that the fund managers would be smart enough to avoid damage from crashes. Sigh. T.G., onlineThe Fool Responds: Many professional investors as well as amateurs were stung when the market imploded. But over time, it has recovered. Many brokers and investment salespeople dont have great track records or your best interests at heart, but others do. The Fidelity Growth Company Fund actually has a strong long-term record. Over the past decade, it has averaged 10.3 percent annual growth, and since its inception about 30 years ago, it has averaged 12.8 percent annually. Still, you would have done well to take your own market assessment into account in your decision-making. A Promising TransformationDuPont (NYSE: DD) is becoming more of a science company, and that could bode well for investors. The company has been pursuing growth opportunities that create higher value for example, buying Danisco, a global enzyme and specialty food ingredients company, while jettisoning its performance coatings unit, a lower-margin commodity business. DuPonts strategy is to build and leverage its science lead in agriculture and nutrition, bio-based industrials and advanced materials. It still faces stiff competition, though, in agriculture, where it faces the likes of Monsanto and Dow Chemical. Competition with Monsanto cost DuPont a lot in legal fees, and ended with DuPont agreeing to a $1.75 billion licensing deal with the seed giant. So now DuPont and Monsanto will collaborate as DuPont gains access to some key patents in Monsantos portfolio. DuPont itself has a vast intellectual property portfolio, providing a strong base for future growth. To that end, the company has set long-term-growth targets to grow its sales by 7 percent each year while its operating earnings are expected to grow at a 12 percent annual clip. The main knock against DuPont right now is a stock price that isnt quite a bargain unless its growth rates rise. For maximum potential growth, consider adding the company to your watch list and waiting for a dip in price to offer a bigger margin of safety. Incorporated back in 1907, Im engaged in the manufacturing of vehicles (and related merchandise) and also in financial services. Warren Buffett has said that he favors companies like me that have customers so devoted that theyll tattoo my name on themselves. I introduced my Knucklehead back in 1936, with a famous teardrop-shaped gas tank. My products have been used in many wars, and law-enforcement and rescue folks use them, too. My logo is a bar and shield, I have a porcine ticker symbol, and I rake in more than $5 billion annually. Evel Knievel was a fan. Who am I? (Answer: Harley-Davidson)Why Bother With Stocks?QWhy should I invest in stocks if they all go down with the market? There may be another big drop, so shouldnt I get out? G.T., Biddeford, MaineASuccessful investors have learned that the value of individual stocks as well as the overall market will fluctuate over time, sometimes soaring or sinking sharply. Over the long haul, if youve bought stocks at undervalued prices, they should approach or exceed their intrinsic value.But that can take time, which is why successful investors also need patience. Exiting stocks makes sense if you really have little or no faith in them. But think twice about exiting in anticipation of a drop, as no one knows exactly what the market will do in the short term. You dont want to be sitting on the sidelines for months or years, missing out on gains. That said, if you feel sure that any holding is very overvalued, selling can make sense. ***QIf you sell a stock that you hold in a Roth IRA for a loss, can you deduct the loss when you take money out of the Roth? You can deduct investing losses in regular brokerage accounts, but what about Roths? H.S., Galena, OhioAIf you follow the rules, youll pay no tax on your Roth withdrawals, but youll also get no tax benefits from losses. Since the overall longterm trend of the market is upward, though, the Roths benefits tend to far outweigh the costs.For example, imagine investing $5,000 per year in your Roth and earning an average annual gain of 8 percent. In 25 years, youd have more than $365,000, and youd be able to take it all out tax-free! Learn more at fool.com/ retirement.Got a question for the Fool?

down, Mr. Estelle said. Everybody from the jewelry stores to the gold buyers to the pawn shops, everyones buying less now. Hes had a front-row seat to the waning of golds fever and claims any rumors of its death are exaggerated, at least from his experience. Gold is still at a far higher price point than before the recession, he points out; and he has a steady customer base. In his opinion, quick-cash businesses that added locations during the downturn, especially those that had never bought or sold gold before, faired the worst. A lot of the guys that tried to overexpand their operations add new facilities or new startup businesses are having a hard time in this market, no question about it, Mr. Estelle said. Floridas top exportAfter growing steadily since 2001, the price of gold peaked at $1,920 per ounce in 2011. As a result, Miami became the nations top exporter of gold as a conduit between Latin America and Switzerland, noted Ken Roberts, president of WorldCity, a Coral Gables media company that studies how the global market affects South Florida. At the same time, Switzerland became Floridas top export destination. The states exports there jumped 45 percent from 2010 to 2011. Gold was Floridas most valuable export in 2012, at $8.2 billion. The metals long slide leading up to a dramatic, one-day April 15 sell off was blamed on a long list of factors, said that days New York Times report, including slower growth in China and a winding down of the federal governments bond buying program. In the first four months of 2013, gold traded places with aircraft, engines, and parts for the top export spot in Florida, though its still the states most valuable import, Mr. Roberts said. Golds more recent volatility was created in part by financial tools such as Exchange Traded Funds, or E.T.Fs, that allow for swift trading of gold on the stock market, financial experts say. Investors during the downturn, especially so-called gold bugs (those against the Federal Treasurys printing of paper money and in favor of a returning to a gold standard), used the metal as a hedge or an insurance policy against a potentially very bad (economic) o utcome, r elative to the Feds handling of money printing and monetary policy, said certified financial planner Rick Krichbaum. Mr. Krichbaum, president of Marquis Wealth Management Group in Fort Myers, said some people feel the new lower price means its time to buy, and others feel like this is the beginning of the end for gold. I dont profess to know the outcome of that equation. To Fort Myers business owner Mr. Estelle of E-Z Cash for Gold, the commodity is still well worth its own weight. If you go back to 2004, it was at $375, he said. At 2007 around $600 an ounce. So, you know, at $1,400, thats still a pretty darn high price. GOLDFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSteve Duke, owner of Westchester Gold & Diamonds in Port Charlotte. >> In a letter to Florida Weekly, Rick Francois, owner of Punta Gorda-based Gulf Coast Metals II, explained how gold prices can rise and fall: Historically, gold prices were determined by supply and demand of the metal. Supply of the metal has been fairly constant so really demand for gold such as higher demand in China or India moved the price. Today, however, gold price moves have been primarily determined by the U.S. Federal Reserve policy. For the most part, the run up in gold in the last five years has been caused by the Feds stimulus program where the Fed has artificially kept rates low by purchasing large amounts of mortgages and other government bonds. One side effect of this program is that the money supply (i.e., the amount of money in circulation) has dramatically increased, which has the potential to devalue the dollar and increase inflation. Gold was seen as a hedge against the declining value of the dollar and overall inflation. In addition, gold was seen as the ultimate safe haven for capital as financial markets melted down and investors questioned the value of paper investments. Over the past month, these two trends have reversed themselves as Bernanke and the Fed has started to signal that the economy has started to improve to the point that it may start to scale back its bond purchase program. Thus the need to hedge against the increased money supply has diminished, which is why investors have started to sell their gold holdings. The improving economy has also shifted investor appetite from lower risk assets like gold and Treasury bonds to riskier assets like equities. The magnitude of this gold sell off is increased because it is now easier than ever for investors to move in and out of gold without transaction costs. In the s and s, if an investor wanted to own gold, he would have to buy the metal, keep it in a secure location and then find a buyer for it when he wanted to sell the metal. Today, you can trade gold through an Exchange Traded Fund like GLD, where you can buy and sell gold like a stock. Therefore, the volatility of gold prices has increased as hedge funds and other large asset managers easily move in and out of their gold positions. Going forward, the price of gold will be determined mostly by perceived Fed policy. If the Fed keeps its foot on the gas in terms of bond buying, the price of gold should be supported. On the other hand, strong economic data such as positive employment growth or better than expected GDP growth may put pressure on gold prices as investors anticipate the winding down of Fed stimulus.

Work begins with the installation of a state-of-the-art irrigation system on the Creek Course by Aqua-Matic Irrigation Systems of Naples. Glase Golf of Bonita Springs will oversee course construction. The course will be completely regrassed from tee to green. In addition, cart paths, bunkers and native areas will be enhanced to improve the sustainability of the course. Arthur Hills, the original designer of Quail Creeks courses, reviewed and certified the renovation plan as consistent with his original design, according to Ted Monty, managing director at Quail Creek. The overall club renovation project consists of three phases: Phase one, scheduled for completion by Nov. 1, includes the Creek Course upgrades, expansion of the Greenside Grille and the addition of two bocce courts adjacent to the Tennis Center. Phase two, beginning April 1, 2014, will provide irrigation for and regrassing of the Quail Course. Phase three, also beginning April 1 next year, consists of a complete redesign of the clubs fitness center and spa complex. Financing for the project is provided by Stonegate Bank of Naples.

The MLS is the primary data system that most real estate agents use to market and sell property. Members of all three organizations can now access residential information for Cape Coral, Bonita Springs, Estero and the Naples area. This is the first group of MLSs in Southwest Florida to join together to create one source of original data that allows members to conduct business throughout an enlarged jurisdiction, and to do so in a streamlined manner utilizing the same MLS system regardless of geography. The real-time availability of information afforded by this system is crucial to the real estate market. If data is not current, properties that have recently sold can remain listed as available, creating frustration for the buyer, seller and agent. Simply stated, we now have more accurate information and more information in one easily accessible spot, says Wes Kunkle, president of Naples Area Board of Realtors. Al Speach, president of BEAR, adds, The MLS was originally formed to help agents sell one anothers listings. Now with the combined database, it provides even wider accessibility. The MLS information merger process began in February 2012, with two members from each board meeting monthly to evaluate national companies to find the one that best served the members and the communitys needs. The task force included Paula Hellenbrand, Don Heisler, Garren Grup, Nina Link, Rick Fioretti and Bob Hewes. After sis months of beta testing to thoroughly vet the various products, the CoreLogic Matrix MLS system was chosen.

C23 Summer solstice is the theme for Corkscrew After Hours on Friday, June 21, at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. As the northern hemisphere tilts closer to the sun than any other day of the year, Corkscrews ancient forest will be bathed in the pastel colors of longer sunset hours. The sanctuary will stay open until 9 p.m., and visitors can enjoy an array of solstice-themed activities. Summer solstice is an astronomical event that has been celebrated for millennia among ancient peoples of northern Europe particularly Celtic peoples and druids for the belief that it signifies fertility and new beginnings. Acknowledged as the marriage of the sun and earth, traditional summer solstice activities revolve around spending time in nature. Corkscrews summer solstice celebration will include entertainment by the local band Trinity beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the nature center. Band members Susanna Haslett, on concertina and tin whistle, and Melissa Seeley, on guitar and vocals, will perform Celtic and Irish-Scottish folk music. Visitors can stroll the 2.25-mile boardwalk, where naturalist interpreters will be stationed to assist with observations of wildlife and summers blooming flowers.

He is our very own Napoleon of opinions, quick to denounce us if we displease him. But Ive dated enough French men to know that his pomposity comes with a certain self-blindness; hes too busy pointing out our faults to notice his own. Last week I was in the kitchen alone, preparing dinner while everyone else was out. The house was quiet and settled, and I hummed under my breath as I set a pot of water on to boil. I had just begun chopping zucchini when the door opened and the Frenchman stepped in. I greeted him warmly and launched into the bright small talk that Americans have perfected: I commented on the weather, talked about my day and stole glances of myself in the mirror behind him. What can I say? The mirror captured my midsection, everything from neck to waist, an angle I hadnt seen since I left home. I was surprised to notice that French food has been good to me a little too good and I kept peeking at my belly as I talked. The Frenchman continued to brood while I sliced bread and put a handful of olives in a bowl. Finally, he silenced my polite chitchat. Stop looking at yourself in the mirror, he commanded. I laughed sheepishly and put both hands on my stomach. I was just checking this out, I said. I patted my newly soft belly. I think it suits me. But the Frenchman did not smile. Instead he raised one eyebrow in derision. Why would you be proud of that? I tried for a casual shrug so he wouldnt know my feelings had been hurt, but he didnt even notice. He plowed ahead, condemning a woman who had stayed at the house earlier in the month, a woman who was thin to the point of emaciation, and said coldly that she, too, had a big belly. My face fell and I dropped my hands. The Frenchman left the kitchen, his tirade exhausted, and not long after my hurt turned to anger. Who was he to judge? No one, as it turns out. Because the next afternoon, I bumped into him on the terrace as I came in from a long walk around the village. It was the first day of nice weather wed had in a month, and everyone was taking advantage of the sun. From the looks of it, the Frenchman was headed out for a hike. And he had decided to wear shorts. Not knee-dusting cargo shorts, the kind men wear in America. Not the mid-calf man capris that Europeans love, w hich are laughable but at least acceptable. No, he wore the tiniest pair of shorts Ive ever seen. They were impossibly short and improbably tight; he looked like a point guard for the 1974 Lakers. As he strutted past me, I cocked my own eyebrow. So this was our arbiter of taste? Artis Henderson has joined the Twitterverse.

Guests will learn how the tiny island of Goodland has inspired and motivated Ms. ONeill for many years. South Florida: A Villagers View relates her most intimate views, current and historic, of the working fishing village filled with brilliant flora and a range of feathered fauna, where old-growth trees dwarf candy-colored cottages, where docks serve as driveways and the backyard is the Ten Thousand Islands. Raffle tickets will be sold for a signed work of art by the artist. South Florida: A Villagers View is on display through Thursday, June 27. The Marco Island Historical Museum, part of the Collier County Museums system, is at 180 S. Heathwood Drive. Temporary and traveling exhibits trace the settlement of the subtropical island from its early pioneer roots as a fishing village, pineapple plantation and clam cannery, through the explosive growth and development of the 1960s. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday (closed Sunday and Monday). Admission is free; donations are welcome. For more information, call 642-1440 or visit www.colliermuseums. com.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 Liebig Art Center for the Naples Art Associations third annual Camera USA juried exhibition, 23 are by Floridians. And, as curator Jack OBrien points out, many of the images have to do with water, or with people in or near the water. David Rowell of St. Petersburg presents an abstract study of water and sky in Seacoast 643. More than 3 feet square, the photograph of sky and water shows various shades of blue, aqua green and even lavender. Its a color study. It looks like a color field painting, says Mr. OBrien. The artist also made it into Camera USA last year, with a photograph that was more monochromatic, with blues and grays. Hes looking at color more this year, Mr. OBrien says, comparing Mr. Rowells pictures to the work of painter Josef Albers, who did color studies on square canvases. Thats very challenging in itself, to work in a square, rather than a rectangle, because its symmetrical. And usually a good composition is asymmetrical. When youre starting with symmetry, its hard to break that within a square. Tony Hertz of Pismo Beach, Calif., also used water for his subject matter. In Gnarled Wave, he focuses on a single wave hitting the shore, creating abstract shapes. Its a study in form and texture. I seek to make peaceful, black-andwhite lustrous images of the natural environment, Mr. Hertz writes in his artists statement. To me nature is like a sanctuary, a place apart. My intention is to photograph what is felt and not often seen. I enjoy capturing those moments that evoke mystery, mood and beauty His image shows a wave at the moment it crashes onto the shore, its white foam forming unusual globular shapes, almost like the contents of a lava lamp. If not for the sand of the beach in the foreground, you might not even know what it was. To get the shot, Mr. Hertz laid in the sand, his camera wrapped in a bag for protection, and took the shot at beachlevel. Photographers will talk about capturing a moment in time, Mr. OBrien says. This is a typical moment on the beach, but one that we dont see, and one that we dont see at this angle. Its a very quick moment, close up. And it has an abstract quality to it. You know its a liquid, but its very much about abstraction. Blackburn, by Sarasota couple Jean Blackburn and Steven Schaefer, is another water shot that toys with abstraction. The rich, color image shows a woman in a black bathing suit underwater at Sweetwater Springs in the Ocala National Forest. The water distorts the figure, but the light also distorts the water, creating interesting patterns of color. Another image of a woman underwater is Aqua Venus by Coral Gables resident Cindy Seip. Its subject: a pregnant woman in a bikini underwater in a pool; while her fetus is floating in amniotic fluid inside her womb, the mother is also floating, surrounded by water. The title, Aqua Venus, also refers to the iconic Venus figurine fertility statuettes from pre-historical times, implying that this is a 21st century representation.Bittersweet imagesThe exhibit also contains some intriguing portraits. Mom Sleeping, by Marita Gootee of Mississippi State University, shows the limited world of a woman at the end of her life. She is sleeping in a recliner in a living room, in front of a TV set; a kitchen can be seen in the background. It is the small environment to which her world has been reduced. The image is from Ms. Gootees series Talking to Ghosts. The series is about my mother who is slowly drifting away in a world of her own, Ms. Gootee writes in her artists statement. Her life is limited to a wheelchair and she is dependent upon others for her needs. She is moving from speaking to me and telling her life stories to talking to those who are in the stories. The look and expressions are not for me but for the ghosts she sees. There is a rawness in the images that give them a feeling of stealing the shot before it is lost. There is an inherent quiet in the images linked with the solemn reality that this could be the last image taken of my mother while alive. Ms. Gootee notes that she shot the series with her iPad. While it enables her to capture the moments with little intrusion, she explains, it also feels as if shes creating a journal. In a way, this is a journal of where the past (has) taken my mother and how I am seeing the loss as it passes by me. Mom Reading, Charles Cordas portrait of his 90-year-old mother, who has dementia and lives with him in Coconut Grove, also makes use of modern technology. The image shows his mother sitting at a table in a dark room, her face lit from the glow of an iPad. On the other side of the spectrum is Waiting Room by Anica Shpilberg of Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. The surreal color photograph shows a line of nude mannequins seated on couches, some leaning forward, arms resting on their legs. They look so realistic that you feel theyve just paused in thought and will move at the very next second. But of course, like anyone in a photograph, they are frozen in time in that one captured moment. CAMERA USAFrom page 1RAUSCHENBERG BENSON BISHOP This years Camera USA drew 183 entries from 15 states. Jurors Harry Benson, Ron Bishop and Christopher Rauschenberg selected 45 images for exhibit at The von Liebig. The three rated the submissions individually, and then their scores were averaged. Mr. Benson, a photojournalist who arrived in America with The Beatles in 1964, was under contract to LIFE magazine from 1970-2000 and is currently under contract to Vanity Fair. He juried the inaugural Camera USA exhibit in 2011. Mr. Bishop, director of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Edison State College in Fort Myers, has judged shows at The von Liebig Art Center before. In his jurors statement about Camera USA, Mr. Bishop described the array of entries as diverse, challenging, provocative and filled with strong imagery and technical accomplishment clearly shows how varied the interests and concerns of artists can be. To me, that diversity is the strength of the exhibition. Mr. Rauschenberg, the son of the late Robert Rauschenberg, is an internationally exhibited photographer based in Portland, Ore. His recent book, Paris Changing, contains his rephotographs of Atgets Paris. His jurors statement reads, in part, Photography is woven deeply into our understanding of the world around us in almost every area of our lives This medium is a rich mixture of art and science, and someday (hopefully soon) the art world will discover how powerful the science half of its nature is. First-place prize in the national competition is $5,000. This years winners will be announced at a preview reception from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, June 14, at The von Liebig. Admission is free for members of the Naples Art Association and $10 for others. The reception is sponsored by LaRose Designs. Also on display at The von Liebig in conjunction with Camera USA is Capturing Our World, a show of works by Naples Daily News staff photographers.

Brought to you in part by like us on facebook FLORIDA WRITERSMemoir of a naturalists love affair with Southwest Florida Journey to the Edge of Eden by Gary Schmelz, Ph.D. Privately published. 294 pages. $37 hardcover, $16 trade paper. Available from www.amazon.com, www.bn.com or www.lulu.com. This book is easy to overlook, as it is carries no publishers imprint or ordering information. And yet it is a significant addition to the understanding of Collier Countys natural features and of those who built programs and institutions to study and protect its environment. In his various roles as teacher, researcher, administrator and advocate, Gary Schmelz spent decades at the center of this story. The first third of the book will mostly interest the authors friends and family. It provides a colorful overview of Schmelz family history, the authors rearing in Jersey City, N.J., his rebellion against city life and his maturing desire to be involved with the study of nature. The book catches fire once Mr. Schmelz turns the focus to his graduate school studies at the University of Delaware, where he earned a doctorate in marine biology. Even as a graduate student, his passionate engagement with fieldwork predicts a meaningful career of continued study and a missionary devotion for respecting the natural habitat. When he sought employment in 1970, the authors most attractive offer came from Deltona, a company with big plans for developing Marco Island. He was hired to join a team of experts advising the company about the environmental impact of those plans. The young scientist feared that the team was just a public relations stunt. However, he received assurances that Deltona was serious about being a good steward of the wetlands. Desperately needing a job, he signed on and suffered through a series of compromising situations. Though he left under a cloud, he had fallen in love with Southwest Florida. Despairing, he managed to find a job at the Big Cypress Nature Center, and the rest truly is history. The story of Mr. Schmelzs working life is one of making the most of opportunities and learning what one has to learn along the way. Not trained as an educator, he finds himself tasked with teaching and then with developing programs in nature education. A week before the job begins, he finds out he is going to drive a school bus and must get a chauffeurs license. The wreck of a school bus assigned to his program is one of many obstacles he has to overcome. Imagine his shock when after his first encounters with Immokalee children, he has to secure his live animal specimens because the children of starving families were likely to steal them. To attract funding, he must learn to design and administer preand post-tests that evaluate the nature centers educational work. He initiates field trips in order to prepare himself better by mastering the habitats first hand. He seeks locations where fossils can be readily discovered in order to open up new avenues for his own study and teaching. The authors boundless enthusiasm for his evolving vocation shines and shimmers. His wonderful descriptions of the discovery process, the education process and the natural phenomena are the heart of this loving memoir. Powerful as well are his descriptions of the people he works with and the struggles of the various environmental organizations that sometimes compete, sometimes cooperate in pursuit of a shared mission. The books latter sections are an insiders view of building an environmentally aware community and of preparing future generations to live responsibly in and with nature. There is one more important ingredient in this book, and that is the fatherand-son story that looms larger as time goes by. The relationship between Mr. Schmelz and his father, Henry, is a precious one, devotedly rendered. Henry becomes an unpaid assistant in many of his sons professional duties and personal pursuits. The two men share a good deal of quality time on explorations and fishing trips. More and more, Gary is the father and Henry the child. Fathers and sons can learn a lot from the carefully nuanced story of their relationship. Heres to Gary Schmelz, longtime director of the Big Cypress Nature Center, director of education for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida and professor of marine biology, oceanography, ecology and general biology at Edison State College. Our community and our children are in his debt. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. i S a D i s philJASONpkjason@comcast.net Schmelz

NoThe opening moments of The Purge are cause for excitement. A la A Clockwork Orange, we hear classical music as we view murders, beatings and gunfights. For a brief second we think, Wow. This is smart and really has something to say about society. But as the film proceeds, we quickly realize it has neither the ambition nor the desire for social commentary and intelligence. The year is 2022 yes, a mere nine years from now and America has never been better. Unemployment is at 1 percent, crime is at an alltime low and everything seems copacetic. Why? Because of the purge: one night a year in which all crime is legal. Generally accepted by the populace and government-approved, it allows people to release the beast and purge, i.e., get all the crime and hate out of their system at once so theres peace the rest of the year. Family man James (Ethan Hawke) is a capitalist to the extreme: He sells high-tech security systems to the well-off so they can ensure their safety on purge night (his neighbor Grace (Arija Bareikis) calls him out for profiting off their fear). Believing theyre safe inside James home are his noble wife Mary (Lena Headey), their annoying son Charlie (Max Burkholder), who looks just like his mother, and their rebellious teenage daughter Zoey (Adelaide Kane), whos ecstatic her boyfriend (Tony Oller) found a way to sneak in before lockdown. Although The Purge touches on themes of morality and ethical dilemmas, it quickly ignores those ideas in favor of home-invader drama. No surprise there, as writer/director James DeMonaco knows the box office does better with fighting and gunshots than with thinking and existential themes. So is it a good thriller? Not really. Empathetic/stupid Charlie lets a homeless stranger (Edwin Hodge) inside, which is contrived, and that leads a group of murderers to the house. Given that James and Mary support the purge and all the good it does, its ironic that people who relish the homicidal freedom attack the family. What follows is standard home-invasion fare, including unlikely heroism, a power outage, stupidity, blood, fights, guns, more stupidity and a weak ending. Two highlights worth noting: The premise, which is an intriguing idea worth exploring in greater depth, and the performance of Rhys Wakefield as the main villain. Hes instantly recognizable because hes the only intruder to take his mask off, for no good reason other than to allow the audience to see his chilly eyes and cold glare. Hes a better villain than the film deserves. Even if you forgive The Purge for being void of social commentary when it easily couldve provided it, theres no forgiving the film for being a so-so action thriller. Trust me: The best way to purge your memory of this is to not see it at all.

CAPSULESThe Reluctant Fundamentalist 1/2 (Riz Ahmed, Liev Schreiber, Kate Hudson) Pakistani-born and Princetoneducated Changez (Ahmed) has success in New York City, but racial profiling after 9/11 makes it hard for him to live in America. Strong performances and a nicely crafted story from director Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding) make this a must-see. Rated R.Fast & Furious 6 1/2 (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Luke Evans) Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) convinces Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Walker) to help him track a quick-strike rogue military bad guy (Evans). There are some notable lulls, but the action is exciting and its a worthy installment for the franchise. Rated PG-13.The Hangover Part III 1/2 (Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong) A gangster (John Goodman) forces the Wolfpack to find Mr. Chow (Jeong). Its an unfunny and unnecessary third wheel that proves writer/ director Todd Phillips has long since run out of ideas for these characters. Rated R.

Flag Day was officially established in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson. It became National Flag Day by a 1949 Act of Congress. Flags should be flown the whole week of June 14. Collectors of old flags display them framed under glass to protect them because they are such important historic relics and are usually in poor condition. But even a torn flag connected to an important event or person is of value, often worth thousands of dollars. An 1863 35-star U.S flag auctioned this year at Cowans of Cincinnati for $705. It had scattered holes and stains. One way to celebrate Flag Day is to put a vintage doll with a flag in your window. An Uncle Sam bisque doll made about 1918 by Handwerck, a German company, sold at a 2012 Theriaults auction for $2,350. The doll was holding an American flag with 48 stars on it. Q: In 1945 I received six place settings of English fish eaters. They were a wedding gift from my aunt, who had owned the set since she got married. So the set is close to being antique. Theyre marked, but I cant read the mark, and they have bone or ivory handles. What do you think the set is worth? A: A single set of fish eaters (also called fish feeders) is a matching fish knife and fish fork utensils designed to use when eating fish. A fish knifes blade is flat and does not have a sharp edge. Its slightly curved on both sides one side curved inward and the other out. A fish fork has three or four flat unsharpened tines, with the outer tines wider than the inner. A set of stainless-steel fish eaters with plastic handles would sell for under $100. A set made of sterling silver with ivory or bone handles is worth several hundred dollars. Ask someone to try to read the makers mark for you. That may help determine the value. Q: I own a small plastic souvenir snow globe of the New York City skyline. Inside theres the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the Twin Towers that came down in 2001. It is marked Made in Hong Kong. Does it have collectible value? A: New York Citys skyline with the Statue of Liberty is probably the worlds most widely produced snow globe subject. Plastic globes were introduced in the 1950s, but construction of the Twin Towers wasnt comKOVEL: ANTIQUES w m r i s terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com

This is a German doll made in about 1918, the year World War I ended. He is carrying a U.S. flag. The bisque doll, 14 inches high, sold for $2,350 at a 2012 auction hosted by Theriaults of Annapolis, Md.pleted until the early 1970s. So your globe isnt more than about 40 years old. While the Towers make your globe a touching souvenir, it would not sell for more than about $10. Too many were made to warrant a high price. Q: I just bought a deep cast-iron skillet at an auction. Im trying to find out what its worth. The bottom of the pan is stamped Martin Stove and Range, Florence, Alabama. The lid has an ornate handle and is stamped No. 9. Id like to find out something about the maker, too. A: Brothers W.H. Martin and Charles Martin founded Martin Stove & Range Co. after buying two other stove companies in 1917. The new company made cast-iron hollowware from 1917 until 1952. Skillets, kettles, griddles, pans, sad irons and other items were made. Skillets were made in eight different sizes and sell today for prices based on size and condition. Recent prices go from about $10 to more than $50. Only a few sell for higher prices. Whatever your winning bid was at the auction is probably the wholesale price for the skillet. It probably would sell for more in a shop. Q: I have a 1940s Clip-Craft erector set in its original cylindrical box. I cant find any information about the set and hope you can help. A: Your construction set was made by Clip-Craft Corp. of New York City. It was written up as a new toy in the December 1947 issue of Popular Science magazine. The set includes curves and rods, steel clips, aluminum sheets and wooden wheels. Pieces are held together by the clips rather than by nuts and bolts. The term Erector Set is a brand name trademarked by Alfred C. Gilbert, who patented his metal construction set in 1913. Gilberts sets, made by the A.C. Gilbert Co. of New Haven, Conn., starting in 1916, were assembled with nuts and bolts. Tip: Do not use selfadhesive tape, stickers or self-stick labels in a scrapbook. Eventually they will no longer stick to paper, and the old adhesive will leave marks. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Visit us online at www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 WEEK OF JUNE 13-19, 2013 CONTRACT BRIDGEExtra ChanceBY STEVE BECKERAssume youre South and reach four spades on the bidding shown. (Norths two-club bid is Stayman, asking whether you have a fourcard major, and Easts double shows good clubs.) West leads the ace and another club. East wins the second club with the queen and continues with the king. How would you play the hand? When the deal occurred, declarer ruffed the king of clubs with the ace of spades (to guard against a possible overruff by West), and then drew trumps with the K-Q-J. Next he led a heart to the ace followed by a heart to the jack, losing to the queen. East returned a club, forcing dummys last trump. When the hearts failed to divide evenly, South had to lose another trick at the end for down one. South bemoaned his bad luck in finding the hearts divided 4-2 and the doubleton queen offside. But he should have made the hand anyway. Declarer erred when he took the heart finesse. Since he needed only three tricks from the heart suit to make his contract, the finesse was not really necessary. To give himself the best chance of scoring a third heart trick, South should draw trumps, cash the K-A of hearts, in that order, and then lead a third heart toward the jack. This will yield an extra heart trick whenever: West started with any number of hearts including the queen. The missing hearts divide 3-3. East started with the Q-x. Souths actual line of play would have succeeded against the first two cases, but it did not guard against the third, and it cost him his contract. 2013 Hilton Worldwide Book our Locals Only package now through September 30, 3013 with rates from $129 including complimentary self-parking and complimentary breakfast buffet for two people.

VINOZinfandel makes great strides to become Americas wineCabernet sauvignon and pinot noir grapes have long been red wine favorites, but zinfandel has made great strides of late to catch up. Wine drinkers appreciate zinfandels fresh fruitforward character and its ability to pair well with complex food flavors, as well as its approachable price point. No other country makes a wine from the zinfandel grapes, although recent DNA analysis proves it to be a clone of the primitivo grape from Italy. More than 10 percent of all California vineyards are planted in zinfandel. Annual harvests of more than 400,000 tons place it third behind cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay, according to a recent article in the online industry publication winebusiness.com. Most of this production goes to white zinfandel, but red zin sales continue to improve as more consumers learn about real zinfandel wine. Old vine vineyards in Sonoma County produce some of the best zinfandel from California. Winemakers look to older vines to bring complexity and depth of flavors. For years, producers such as Ridge, Seghesio and Ravenswood have been crafting high-quality wines from this difficult-to-produce grape; it tends to ripen unevenly in the vineyard, and growers normally make several runs through the vineyard to harvest the grapes at their best. Other quality producers have recently emerged in the marketplace. David Phinneys Orin Swift label, Michael David Winery, Rosenblum and Turley have all released wines at various price points that will suit a variety of budgets. Many are available at local wine shops. Smaller production labels are available online or directly from the winery. Below are some zinfandels I have tasted and liked over the years. The tasting notes are mine unless indicated otherwise.Wine Picks of the Week: Bogle Zinfandel California Old Vine 2010 ($10): This budget-friendly wine comes from vineyards in the Lodi and Amador districts. Ripe, fruity aromas and flavors of raspberries and cherries on the nose are followed by blackberries and a touch of spice on the palate, with a medium and smooth finish. Dry Creek Zinfandel Sonoma County Heritage 2010 ($20): Spicy raspberry and cherry aromas follow through with layers of black cherry, berries and a little pepper on the finish. This older-vine zinfandel is a great value. Michael David Winery 7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel 2009 ($20): Aromas of plums and a touch of white pepper, with flavors of raspberry and blueberry joining on the palate. Deep ruby in color with a lasting finish. Orin Swift The Prisoner Napa Valley 2011 ($38): This has become one of my favorite red wines. Mostly zinfandel with substantial amounts of cabernet sauvignon, syrah and petite sirah. Winemaker David Phinneys tasting notes: The wine has a dense red and black hue that is framed in vibrant crimson. Aromas of bing cherry, espresso, roasted fig and vanillin, oak accents are persistent. The entry is powerful and generous supported with lively acidity while flavors of ripe raspberry, pomegranate and wild berry fruit linger harmoniously. Soft, integrated tannin chains allow the wine to be approachable now and provides for a pleasant finish. Ravenswood Zinfandel California Vintners Blend Old Vine 2011 ($10): As the company proclaims on its website home page: NO WIMPY WINES If your favorite color is beige you should drink something else. Big and juicy flavors and aromas of blueberry, black cherry and a touch of oak. This entry-level zin from a top producer is full of flavor and easy on your pocketbook. Ravenswood Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Teldeschi Single Vineyard 2010 ($35): Dark rich purple in color due to the petite syrah content (up to 15 percent). One of the first wines produced by Ravenswood, its full-bodied and robust with blackberry and boysenberry aromas and flavors, rich tannic structure and long finish. Ridge Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Pagani Ranch 2010 ($35): Made from vines more than 100 years old. Winemaker Eric Baughers tasting notes: Saturated garnet; ripe plum and red cherry fruits, compote, exotic spice; Intense berry fruit on entry, sensuous, layered, round tannins, sweet core fruit, juicy acid, long finish. Rosenblum Zinfandel Rockpile Road Zinfandel 2009 ($40): Warm cherry and plum aromas on the nose open to a big, full palate with blackberries and black cherries, finishing with a little zip of acid on the long structured finish. Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma County 2010 ($25): Full-bodied and spicy with notes of black cherry and black raspberry on the nose and the palate, with a spicy balanced finish. Turley Zinfandel Napa Valley Turley Estate 2011 ($40): Grown in the backyard of the family home, full-bodied with big black cherry aromas edged with spice, continuing with mixed wild berries on the palate and a balanced, drawn out finish. g t g l k O jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com Bogle Old Vine Zin Florida Weekly is now FREE across all platforms.FREE FOR ALL Visit us online at www.FloridaWeekly.com Local content.

After enjoying her hospitality at the tres chic Marie-Michelles in the Village at Venetian Bay and, in recent years, at the more intimate Mimis, I felt a sense of loss as I always do when good restaurants shut down. But theres good news to report as well. While we must say adieu to Ms. Rey, we can say bonjour to Bernard Massuger, who opened Restaurant Bonjour the day after Mimis closed. And though Mr. Massuger didnt swoop down and buss us (or any other customers) on both cheeks as Ms. Rey was wont to do, he did introduce himself, pour our wine and otherwise watch over us, ably assisted by the effervescent Eva, the lone server and a welcome holdover from Mimis. The two bantered good naturedly and kept things moving along smoothly in the diminutive dining room that still has the soothing ambience that was Mimis, complete with the lovely peach-hued walls, white paper lanterns suspended from the ceiling and the bar topped with a profusion of wine bottles. There are only 15 wines available, but they represent a respectable mix of Old World and new, and all but two are available by the glass as well as the bottle. A bottle of Maison Roche de Bellene Bourgogne Blanc ($48) came to the table at just the right temperature. A French chardonnay, it was well balanced, with apple and citrus notes and just enough acidity to stand up to the bold flavors of the food. Mimis devotees will find plenty to comfort them on the current menu, with many old favorites still available, including the carrot-ginger soup and coq au vin. Every dish we ordered and those I spotted at nearby tables was artfully plated and delivered appropriately chilled or properly hot. The French can make even a plate of greens transcendent, as evidenced by an endive and Roquefort salad ($8.75), which paired peppery arugula with mellow endive, showered them with bits of tangy Roquefort and swaddled everything in sesame vinaigrette. A smoked salmon dish ($13.75) was even more dramatic, with strips of buttery smoked salmon rolled in the middle, tendercrisp asparagus spanning one side of the plate and two crisp slices of baguette on the other. Vidalia onions and caper vinaigrette (which I was tempted to lick from the plate) finished off this generous starter. Bouillabaisse du Gulf ($28.75) featured a mix of salmon, bay scallops, shrimp and mussels in a delicate saffron bouillon. Garnished with two crisp slices of bread slathered in rouille (a blend of olive oil, saffron, garlic and herbs), it was a masterful rendition of this hearty Provencal fish stew. My favorite dish was my dining companions canard croustillant aux airelles ($28.75), known around these parts as roasted duckling. The half bird had a gorgeous crisp exterior yet remained moist and succulent within. As good as the duck itself was, it was even better with the sundried cranberry sauce that accompanied it. Neither too tart nor too sweet, it was so flavorful it seemed a shame not to drink what we didnt use as a dipping sauce for the duck. Lightly cooked green beans and a mound of sweet potatoes finished this dish nicely. Im fairly confident that its illegal to skip dessert when dining at a French restaurant. If it isnt, it should be. The tarte tatin ($6.95) was a warm wedge of tender apples lightly caramelized atop a pastry crust, finished with whipped cream. The flavor was good, but the crust was disappointingly soggy, the only off-note in an otherwise lovely meal. The crme brulee ($7.50) was superb, served warm (hot, actually), which softened the caramelized sugar on top so the texture didnt do battle with the velvety custard on which it sat. Dining in Restaurant Bonjour is much like enjoying a meal in a small French caf, with its tables situated close enough that you can gaze upon and covet your neighbors fragrant cassoulet descargots or roasted pork shank. You can listen in while Mr. Massuger speaks passionately about the calfs liver with a guest who is vacillating between it and the veal chop. And, because youve been able to eyeball a few dishes you didnt order, youll know what to get the next time you visit. Restaurant Bonjour has only been open for a few weeks, but on the night I visited it appeared several diners had been there before and knew what to expect. Considering Naples is a town in which summers are typically slower than slow, it was a surprise to see the 36-seat dining room close to capacity. On a weeknight. In June. Impressive indeed.

Pools are almost as much a part of the Neapolitan lifestyle as the beach itself, a calming force on a sweltering day and home base for fun and entertaining. Naples homeowners have taken enjoying the pool to a whole new level of graciousness. For Bob and Carole Beauregard of North Naples, their pool is their paradise. When we awaken to the friendly chirping of the birds and have our breakfast on the lanai, we say, This is truly paradise, Mr. Beauregard says. For Mr. Beauregard in particular, the pool and hot tub are more than refreshing. The oasis is also therapeutic for a person who has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for over 50 years, he says. But the best part of all, he adds, is when our grandchildren come to visit from the frozen tundra. Its such a joy to hear their squeals of glee when they jump into the Jacuzzi and pool. Not far down the road, Monica and John Gagne appreciate their pool in much the same way.

Sarotte FLORIDA WEEKLY4 JUNE 2013 Lynne Stambouly is the senior designer in the specialty lighting division at Lighting First and president of the Interior Design Society-Naples. Shes known around Southwest Florida as the Light Lady a rockstar image that has been 30 years in the making. FW: Whats your favorite lighting trend right now? LS: Incorporating LED light bulbs. Its about taking technology thats being mandated and incorporating that into our residential life so the space feels more comfortable. Its been more than 100 years since weve made major changes in the light bulb. FW: If you had an unlimited budget and could do any type of lighting design you wanted without thought for cost or availability of materials, what would you do? LS: Id use natural materials such as onyx and semi-precious stone and create a wall with LED backlighting. When you backlight that and dim it down, it can look infinitely different. FW: What was the most difficult lighting scenario youve ever designed? LS: We did an installation on a three-story wood stairwell with a 32-foot ceiling. We dropped more than 20 art glass pendants down from the ceiling. The junction box was not centered in the space. I needed to create a lighting design that would not only light the stairwell, but that would also be a focal point in the home. FW: How do homeowners get started on a lighting plan with you and Lighting First?LS: We offer a free hour-long consultation in the home, and we take a look at the property. You have to address everything: What kind of light bulbs? What kind of shades are on the table lamps? Are the chandeliers the right size? We get a feel for where and how the client lives. Sometimes if people take digital photos and bring them to us, we can be helpful there, too, especially if a customer just needs to come in and purchase lighting products. We can supply everything they would need and install whatever design they specify. We are licensed electrical contractors. FW: Our cover story this month is about amazing pools. What advice can you share with readers about lighting a pool space? For example, whats the best way to light a lanai? LS: We entertain, read, watch TV and relax next to the pool. Adding depth through different kinds of lighting landscape lighting, pool lighting and even floating candles, wall sconces, etc. is what creates the ambience. With proper landscape lighting, the reflection of that palm tree on the pool is as tropical as it gets. When I incorporate lighting, I always include landscape lighting.

Roaming through aisles of potted plants and trees, statues, fountains, fish tanks and pottery, regular customers know not to be in a hurry. The center is a Naples landmark. Anyone who has driven south on U.S. 41 past Pine Ridge Road is familiar with the sign and foliage that mark the landscape on the western side of the highway. Heres what some longtime fans have to say about it: Everything in there is eye-catching. You typically expect to walk into a place like this and just see plants everywhere. But Driftwood has a showroom style. Its set up with inspirational ways to arrange everything. My favorite thing about visiting Driftwood is seeing the fish I can imagine my own soothing aquatic installation someday with lots of fish. You can get the pretty things you want to beautify a garden but also everything you need, the nuts and bolts, tools and tricks to actually keep it growing. Sometimes I go there just to wander around, even if I dont know what I need or want. Its just a soothing place to get inspired to grow something. Expertise is available from the passionate people who work there, too. And that separates the center from many others. The staff here can change a black thumb to a green thumb provided you follow their lead. Driftwood even sells custom-blended fertilizers tailored to different gardens in Southwest Florida. The store also has a charming florist and features products and events that help gardeners make the most of purchases and extend growing time.

their sanctuary with several luxurious perks. Ours is a saline water system, so its very soft on the skin and hair. We have a JewelScape glass pebble surface, and the gas heater automatically switches to an electric heat pump to maintain the temperature economically, says Mrs. Gagne, who opted for a 7-foot spa with its own hydro pump for soothing away the days aches and pains. In the pool, the Badu Stream II Swimjet system creates a current that allows for continuous swimming exercise. A swim-up bar has four pedestal seats for resting and refreshing after the equivalent of a few laps. The Gagnes selected two natural Alabama ledge rock waterfalls, created by Lotus Water Gardens, and a 10-inch-deep sun shelf/wading pool in which to sunbathe and play with little ones. Controlled onsite or via iPad or smartphone from afar, the Pentair Screen Logic2 interface lets them ensure that the spa is ready and waiting at the perfect temperature whenever they get home.The secret to success When it comes to pool construction, water literally seeks its own level. The Gagnes and their pool contractor, Custom Pools of Naples, are an example of what can happen when customer and contractor share a like mindset. Mike Matson of Custom Pools says the Gagnes were open-minded, an integral part of making a great team. The Gagnes project was a lot of fun, because they know what they like and dislike and were very open-minded, which allowed us to be creative in bringing their pool area to life and making it something that works perfectly for their family, Mr. Matson says. He and his business partner, Travis Wilson, specialize in creating backyard environments that reflect homeowners and their lifestyles, something that was important to the Gagnes. It was a wonderful opportunity to be able to work with them and create a space for their family and friends to enjoy, Mr. Wilson says. So where can homeowners find inspiration and facts before breaking ground for a new pool or making over an existing one? Nothing makes potential pool owners salivate more than the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals Awards of Excellence gallery of photos, which is on the companys website at www.APSP.org. The APSP is the oldest, largest association representing swimming pool, spa and hot tub folks in the world. Its also the only industry organization recognized by the American National Standards Institute to develop and promote national standards for pools, hot tubs and spas standards that are important when youre talking about safety and expenditures associated with pools. Contractor selection is very important, says Lisa Grepps, APSP marketing and communications director, who refers homeowners to the member locator section of the website to help them choose a qualified contractor. The good news is that the right APSP-certified professional can help make the backyard dream achievable and affordable.Old pool? Make it overSometimes, a facelift is just what a pool needs to become fabulous. Thats where companies such as Naples Pool Service come in, providing pool and deck renovation, automation of pool/spa systems and all types of repairs and pool maintenance. The company, family owned and operated by Julie, Stanley, Alan and Pete Roeser, has been helping Naples and Bonita Springs residents dive in since 1969. Swimming pools in Naples come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and complexities, and over time, our industry has increasingly adopted technology to modernize pools and spas, Julie Roeser says. Computerized control systems regulate valves, pumps, lights and heaters to make the pool an integral part of the house and lifestyle a far cry from simple swimming holes built in the 0s. Renovation of older or dated pools is common, she says, and can involve things such as new decking, automation and the addition of items such as fountains and swim-outs. Some swimming pool remodeling requires significant demolition, and others are surprisingly easy to make over, she adds. A pool is an investment in a residence that requires maintenance and repairs. www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY8 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2013 SWIMMINGFrom page 3 Tips for choosing a pool contractor Check for experience. Ask if the contractor has built pools or installed hot tubs in environments similar to yours. Ask for samples of past work and look for similar yards (especially if your yard has slopes or drainage issues). Beware of cost issues. Make sure all factors are included in the cost estimate. Factors that in uence price go beyond installation and can include quality of materials, design and warranties. Be safe. Make sure your contractor is bonded, insured and versed in all applicable installation/building regulations for your state and community, and especially the standards of the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals. Con rm that he or she understands any unique safety concerns, such as the presence of a special-needs child or high-traf c corner lot where the pool could attract neighborhood children. Get on the same page. Ensure your contractor understands your vision and is willing to make it as cost-effective as possible, while advising on the best location for the new pool, spa or hot tub. Professional certi cation. Verify that the contractor youre considering is an APSPcerti ed professional. Contractors who achieve the APSP certi cation have proven knowledge of design and construction, are committed to continuing education to maintain their certi cation, and adhere to a stringent code of ethics.

A big pool with all the bells and whistles costs more to maintain than a small, simple one, of course, but the Roesers stress that landscaping around the pool can greatly affect how clean the pool will stay and the cost of keeping it clean. Enter W. Christian Busk, landscape architect, widely regarded as the landscape garden whisperer. No one does it like Mr. Busk, with soaring trellises and breathtakingly lush designs his living calling cards. We can call in the contractors and work as a team including building the pool and work with the owners as their representative to do whatever the client wants, says Mr. Busk, who owns W. Christian Busk Landscape Architect Inc. and Busk & Associates Landscape Contractors. Actually, the last thing we do is plant the garden, because so much of our job is planning. That planning includes many issues of which homeowners often are unaware, he adds issues such as cleaving for irrigation, paving and solutions such as using grass in the driveways to manage storm water runoff. Hes quick to clarify that his team doesnt just plant bushes. These pools are for people who want to spend time entertaining outdoors. They want the house, basically, outside, says Mr. Busk, whose work has been featured in publications including Southern Living, Florida Architecture and Home and Garden. While a lovely pool can create a focal point anywhere on a property, perhaps no pool is more eye-catching than one on a rooftop. And in Naples, perhaps no one does it like The Strada at the Mercato, where the common area includes a 52-foot, heated infinity pool complete with a waterfall and spa, all overlooking restaurants and shops below.

They got their wish when they took on the major renovation of a master bath in a Pelican Bay condominium. It was a pretty intense project, Ms. Davis says. There was a lot of detail involved. This is in a high-rise condo, so you have to be very careful where you place things, where you can put plumbing, speakers, lighting there are many parameters. In this case, she had to meet the challenges of a walk-in tub and accessible shower as well. Because there was a curb code requirement, its not a roll-in shower, but we created a wide space between the shower and the tub and two turn circle spaces in front of the vanities. Ms. Davis made sure the tub was wrapped as if it were more of a decorative Jacuzzi tub, so its almost impossible to tell that it is a walk-in tub. Even the grab bars used for ease of getting in and out of the tub and shower are in a brushed nickel finish that matches the dcor. The stone in the shower was the inspiration of the color palate in the whole bathroom. Her favorite part of the process was when the protective covering was removed from the new floor. That design element took everything to the next level, and that reveal was when we realized everything was coming together, she says.A common concernThe goal of the bathroom redesign is one thats shared by thousands of Naples homeowners. The clients main requirement was to redesign the large space to become more accessible as an aging-in-place environment, while keeping a luxurious atmosphere, Ms. Davis says. Our client requested innovative ways to make her routine easier in the bathroom, as well as unique storage as opposed to large closets that would have cut into the space. She incorporated geometric lines to help transform the long, narrow custom cabinetry. And to replace the large linen closet that took up so much space, she designed a decorative hutch to hold towels and toiletries.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY JUNE 2013 13 PROJECT MAKEOVERan outlet and phone jack to provide an inconspicuous place for a phone. The most important goal of the makeover was to make the bathroom more user-friendly. The big, inaccessible tub was removed and replaced with a more appropriate walk-in tub. Once dark and enclosed, the shower was redesigned to allow for natural light and easier access. The porcelain tile installed throughout the shower floor and main bathroom floor is ADA-compliant for slip resistance. Natural stone was incorporated in areas where it would not become an issue of slipping. Sconces were added to either side of the vanity mirrors for more directional light. The homeowner now uses dimmers on light fixtures to provide more control over light levels. Removing the linen closet and relocating the entryway made a view of the gulf possible. The biggest challenges? High-rise blues. Naples is famous for the limits placed on the changes to the footprint homeowners can make during a remodeling project. The redesign of the master bath was restricted by the existing floor plan for example, drain locations and vent stacks dictate where showers, tubs and commodes must go, Ms. Davis says. Calling on her creativity, she overcame the biggest obstacles by using the existing tub location for the new shower, and the existing shower location for the new tub.
