COMMENTARYThe big DI thought about divorce last week while getting some perspective on things 40,000-feet worth of perspective. I had just learned by phone that two family members intend to divorce. Meanwhile, Id spent several recent days talking about the Big D with a close friend, a man at once brilliant and brokenhearted. My eastbound jet arced out of Colorado more than seven miles above the patchwork squares and circles of the western prairie, where the deep autumn lay drenched in afternoon sun. Green splashes of winter wheat punctuated the otherwise austere palette of browns lying far below me like misplaced algae blooms, planted to sprout before the Great Plains turn white and silent with winter. Come April, the tiny stalks will remain verdant from their dormancy under snow, and by midsummer the wheat will stand in chesthigh golden splendor. To me thats the landscape of divorce, done right: a seed planted in the face of winters difficult and frozen season, followed by future bounty. But its sure no picnic. I pretended I wanted to die, David Pulizzi wrote me while sitting on my front porch. Hed driven there from the mountains of central Penn sylv ania. What I really wanted, though, was to live again. Happily, peacefully. But I couldnt figure out how. On every front, I felt like a loser in the eyes of everyone I knew. In my own eyes, I was an utter, ceaseless disappointment. With this dismal disposition, I took off at 5 in the afternoon, drove all night and much of the next day 1,200 miles until I reached the place where I hoped, dimly, to begin again. My front porch. Looking at all that from ab ove, its hard not to conclude that divorce may be the single greatest cultural gift that Americans have ever offered the world. We long since missed the chance to rank at the top of the list of noble nations who first halted the buying and selling of human beings. The British made that form of slavery illegal early in the 19th century, long before we did and without a bloody Civil War to get it done. But when it comes to busting another kind of slavery, the kind that requires two human beings who do not love each other to carry on as if they do personally, economically, socially, legally or any other way we have achieved unparalleled progress. After all, divorce has long been anathema an ugly thing, an assumed tragedy, a sign of failure, weakness or lack of virtue punishable by all kinds of social and economic sanctions, or worse. All of which is nonsense. Divorce does not challenge marriage (an institution I support wholeheartedly), at least not substantive marriage. Instead its a remedy for slavery. And slavery is immoral, a toxic snakebite on the soul. Americans have invented meaningful divorce, and consecrated it, just as we invented and consecrated the automobile. First we designed it, and then we massproduced it, making it both affordable and accessible to those other than just the very rich. And we continue to take advantage of it. Additionally, every single divorce is a dying echo of courage and hope, which should always be celebrated. Love is risky, as everyone knows, and thats because sometimes it turns out to be a chimera a shape-shifting fantasy that can burn those who gamble on its merits. But the courage and hope that bet on love in the first place, by putting down the marriage chip rather than just hopping into bed and cohabiting, remain real and glorious, win or lose the pot. Its true that a lot of pots have been lost lately, but at least they havent become cultural prison cells. In the United States, about 43 percent of first marriages will not reach the 15-year mark, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In Florida alone, more than 80,000 divorces take place each year. Below my plane, the Arkansas River spilled from the alpine slopes of the Rocky Mountains, split the Royal Gorge in a torrent, then meandered out across the stark plains of eastern Colorado into southern Kansas. That river pushes through northeastern Oklahoma, traverses Arkansas, then breaks free of the Ozark mountains in the cotton-pickin flatlands to the east (I watched this happen from the jet). Finally, the Arkansas marries the mighty Mississippi River. Every inch of that journey is a landscape of divorce, both metaphorically and geographically, which is true of the entire nation. Thats a good thing, but good things are not always easy things. As a society, weve consecrated divorce, but weve done the consecrating mostly in pain, guilt and sorrow mostly in suffering, in other words. And theres no need for that. Children, in particular, are said to suffer in the face of their parents divorces. But I question any assumptions about what such suffering means, or how it manifests itself among children of parents who love them unequivocally. In my experience of this matter, which is both broad and personal, if parents love their children unequivocally, they will never speak ill of each other in front of them, no matter what they think. They wont even imply criticism in tone, which can take some real self-control. Instead, theyll actively speak well of each other but not in servitude to a chimera, to a dysfunctional marriage. For such benevolent parents, there is no real divorce. There is only shared parenting, by parents who no longer sleep in the same bed. When divorce is the right thing to do (not a licentious surrender, but a refusal to accept slavery), and when its the first planting of a new seed at the edge of winter, like winter wheat, then it should be celebrated. Ive learned that Im neither doomed nor damned, wrote my friend, David Pulizzi. And so go I will, taking with me every precious gift. Ill think about how I might turn those gifts into a life. And in so doing, how I might someday return those gifts in spades to everyone who has ever been crazy and twisted enough to love my sorry, blessed ass.

PAGE 4 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 OPINIONTed Cruz, traitor to his class richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Henry Adams said that politics is the systematic organization of hatreds. For the left in the past year, it has seemed at times to be the systematic organization of hatred of Ted Cruz. The freshman senator is not the first Texan to be so honored. In fact, the state isnt holding up its end if, at any given moment, it isnt throwing onto the national scene at least one Republican reviled by the other side. The partys highest-profile Texans, George W. Bush and Rick Perry, tended to match inarticulateness with cowboy swagger and lend themselves to mockery as intellectual lightweights. Bush went to Yale and Harvard Business School, yet no one naturally thinks of him as an Ivy Leaguer. The two Lone Star State governors played into the lefts stereotypes so nicely that if they didnt exist, the New York Times editorial board would have had to invent them. Cruz is different a Princeton and Harvard man who not only matriculated at those fine institutions but excelled at them. Champion debater at Princeton. Magna cum laude graduate at Harvard. Supreme Court clerkship, on the way to Texas solicitor general and dozens of cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. Cruz is from the intellectual elite, but not of it, a tea-party conservative whose politics are considered gauche at best at the storied universities where he studied. He is, to borrow the words of the 2008 H.W. Brands biography of Franklin D. Roosevelt, a traitor to his class.Democrats and liberal pundits would surely dislike Cruz no matter where he went to school, but his pedigree adds an element of shocked disbelief to the disdain. Princeton and Harvard should be disgraced, former Penn sylv ania Gov. Ed Rendell exclaimed on MSNBC, as if graduating a constitutionalist conservative who rises to national prominence is a violation of the schools mission statements.One of the lefts deepest prejudices is that its opponents are stupid, and Cruz tramples on it. At hearings, Cruz has the prosecutorial instincts of a ... Harvard-trained lawyer. Watching Attorney General Eric Holder try to fend off Cruzs questioning on the administrations drone policy a few months ago was like seeing a mouse cornered by a very large cat. Cruz hasnt played by the Senate rules that freshmen should initially be seen and not heard. At another hearing, as Cruz says that the highest commitment of senators should be to the Constitution, another senator can be heard muttering that he doesnt like being lectured. Chairman Pat Leahy (probab ly the mutterer) eventually cuts him off and informs him he hasnt been in the Senate very long. None of this is to endorse all of Cruzs tactical judgments or to deny he can irk his own side at times. His push to defund Obamacare this fall is a grassroots-pleasing slogan in search of a realistic path to legislative fruition. It is no secret that Cruz has presidential aspirations. Even if he ascends no higher, though, he will be a force in the Senate. He could spend decades making liberals recoil at what Princeton and Harvard hath wrought.

Entergy Corp., one of the largest nuclear-power producers in the U.S., issued a surprise press release Tuesday, saying it plans to close and decommission its Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station in Vernon, Vt. The station is expected to cease power production after its current fuel cycle and move to safe shutdown in the fourth quarter of 2014. While the press release came from the corporation, it was years of peoples protests and state legislative action that forced its closure. At the same time that activists celebrate this key defeat of nuclear power, officials in Japan admitted that radioactive leaks from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear catastrophe are far worse than previously acknowledged. It took three years, but it was citizen pressure that got the state Senate to such a position nuclear-energy consultant Arnie Gundersen told me of Entergys announcement. He has coordinated projects at 70 nuclear plants around the country and now provides independent testimony on nuclear and radiation issues. He explained how the state of Vermont, in the first such action in the country, had banned the plant from operating beyond its original 40-year permit. Entergy was seeking a 20-year extension. The Legislature, in that 26-to-4 vote, said: No, were not going to allow you to reapply. Its over. You know, a deals a deal. We had a 40-year deal. Well, Entergy went to first the federal court here in Vermont and won, and then went to an appeals court in New York City and won again on the issue, as they framed it, that states have no authority to regulate safety. Despite prevailing in the courts, Entergy bowed to public pressure. Back in 2011, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin, who called Entergy a company that we found we cant trust, said on Democracy Now!: Were the only state in the country thats taken power into our own hands and said that, without an affirmative vote from the state legislature, the Public Service Board cannot issue a certificate of public good to legally operate a plant for another 20 years. Now, the Senate has spoken ... saying no, its not in Vermonts best interest to run an aging, leaking nuclear-power plant. And we expect that our decision will be respected. The nuclear-power industry is at a critical crossroads. The much-touted nuclear renaissance is collapsing, most notably in the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster, compounded by the global financial crisis. In a recent paper titled Renaissance in Reverse, Mark Cooper, senior fellow for economic analysis at the Vermont Law School, writes, The problem for old nuclear reactors has become acute. The costs to operate, and to repair, these plants have prompted operators to shutter five of the 104 operating power generating reactors in the U.S. this year alone, leaving 99. Cooper has identified 30 more that he estimates will be shut down, because the economics of old reactors are very dicey. The profound consequences of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear-power accident are still unfolding, as this week the Japanese Nuclear Regulatory Agency increased its assessment of the situation there to Level Three, or serious, on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale. The original accident in March 2011 was rated a Seven on that scale, the highest, most severe, threat. The nuclear fuel rods there require constant cooling by water. The spent cooling water is highly radioactive. The Tokyo Electric Power Co., which ran Fukushima and which has been responsible for all the cleanup, has been storing the radioactive water in hastily-constructed water tanks, which are now leaking. The surveys of the area determined that the radiation coming from the ground was five times more in an hour than a normal person would get in a year, Gundersen said. Radioactive water is leaking out of this plant as fast as its leaking in. So, youve got something on the order of 400 tons to maybe even as much as a thousand tons of water a day leaking off of the mountains around Fukushima into the basement of this plant. Well, the basement is highly radioactive, because the containment has failed and radioactive material is leaking out from the nuclear core into the other buildings. Thats being exposed to this clean groundwater and making it extraordinarily radioactive. ... And the problem is going to get worse. The Fukushima disaster has been compared to the catastrophe in Chernobyl, where a nuclear plant exploded in 1986, making the surrounding region uninhabitable. The radiation is spilling out of Fukushima into an ever-growing radioactive plume in the Pacific Ocean. Fukushima shows us the intolerable costs of nuclear power. The citizens of Vermont show us the benefits of just saying no. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

In 81 countries on six continents, these veteran journalists have covered wars and peace talks, historic figures from presidents to the Beatles, heroes and villains, civil rights leaders and civil unrest at home and abroad.Don and Chris have settled in Marco Island, where they enjoy the beach and backwaters of the island. With his wifes advice and support, Don wrote the recently released Deadly News, a thriller set against the backdrop of the sometimes bizarre and frenetic world of TV News.When Don was a sophomore in high school in St. Louis, Mo., he was assigned to write a paper about what he wanted to be when he grew up. He had no idea, so he threw together an essay on being an electrical engineer. The teacher called him in after class and said, Don, you clearly know nothing about electrical engineer But youre a pretty good writer. You might consider that as a career. So he did. He earned a bachelors degree at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, majoring in TV/radio news and political science. He had completed all the requirements for a masters degree, except for the written thesis, when NBC News offered him an internship. He left school for 30 Rockefeller Center in New York. After the internship, he joined the US Army Reserve, with six months active duty and seven years in reserve units. His next stop was an on-air reporting position at the NBC station in Philadelphia. Three years later, about the time Peter Jennings became the anchor, Don was hired by ABC News as a correspondent. In 1970, on assignment in Houston as the southern bureau chief/correspondent for ABC News, Don met Chris at KTRK, the ABC affiliate there, where she was a reporter and anchor. They married in Houston two years later and then moved to London, where Don was assigned to a key correspondents post in the ABC News bureau. He was later named ABC News bureau chief in Germany. During this period, Chris covered international news for radio and print in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Dons coverage abroad sent him to war and civil strife in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia, including Vietnam and Cambodia. He also covered civil rights turmoil in the U.S. and several presidential campaigns as well as the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 resident Don Vecoli formed the Southwest Florida branch a hub in the organizations terminology in 2008. At the close of 2012, the Washington, D.C.,-based organization had 127 hubs in 49 states and had transported 98,500 veterans to see the WWII Memorial. The Southwest Florida hub covers Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Sarasota, Manatee, DeSoto and Hendry counties. Mr. Vecoli, a Desert Storm veteran who served in the U.S. Navy for 26 years, was Charlotte Countys veterans services officer before leaving the post and moving to Bradenton. It was just natural for me to continue to help vets, Mr. Vecoli said, explaining why he formed the hub. My dad was a WWII veteran and we lost him at 47 years old. So you could say, each one of these trips, Im making with Dad. Since 2008, he has organized 13 Honor Flights that transported 740 veterans to and from the WWII Memorial, which was opened in April 2004. For Mr. Vecoli, the memorial was dedicated almost 60 years too late, coming at a time when advancing age and infirmity, fixed incomes and death were becoming increasingly common for WW II vets. Emotions run high on the trips and begin to flow well before the groups arrive at the memorial. Mr. Vecoli said Reagan National Airport usually announces the flights landing and the special passengers that it bears, and its common for the vets to be received by a 200-400 person welcoming committee when they deplane. Thats when all the camaradie of the day becomes. Theyre good tears, he said. And all through the airport, the people that are there to greet them, its just overwhelming. When we actually get to the WWII Memorial, there are so many school kids that come up and hand a veteran a handmade card on construction paper made with crayons to thank them. Mr. Vecoli said many of the guardians who accompany the older veterans are Vietnam vets who come from all walks of life. Former Naval officer Dr. Debi Strand is looking forward to serving as a guardian for the first time on Saturday. A dentist who works and resides in Naples, Dr. Strand pointed to the many sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces, as motivation. They give up their families, she said. They go overseas and they put themselves in harms way. I truly, truly believe in giving back. I love my men and women of the service and when I heard about Honor Flight, especially since my grandfather was at Normandy and has a Purple Heart and a Bronze Medal, I felt this was something I needed to do. Southwest Florida Honor Flight organizes two trips a year to the memorial. Mr. Vecoli wishes he could add many more trips, but limited funds and rising costs make that difficult. There is no corporate funding to fall back on, he said. We just beat the bushes. In the beginning it cost me $32,000 (for airfare, buses and meals) to take people to Washington, D.C. Now its costing me $48,000 to make the trip. Donations to Southwest Florida Honor Flight can be made by sending a check payable to SWFL Honor Flight to P.O. Box 12416, Bradenton FL 34280.

PAGE 10 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 My name is Dr. T Bryant and I have something urgent to share with you. This secret literally has the power to change your life forever. In fact, its the key to getting you in the best shape of your life. My goal is to help people look and feel better than they ever have before. And Iron Tribe Fitness is by far the most effective system for helping people do just that. Just take a look at the picture above...those results are typical! In those pictures, youll see just a few of the shocking transformations from our members of Iron Tribe in Birmingham, AL. Take, for example, Chuck Andrews who transformed his body from Pillsbury Dough Boy to Tarzan in only a few short months. Chuck is not alone. Its because of these kinds of results that Iron Tribe -which started as hobby with 12 friends in a 400 square foot garage -has exploded into a national franchise. However, if you want these kind of results, you need to act right now before this opportunity passes by. Why the urgency? Because Iron Tribe Fitness only accepts 300 members per location. Not 301. This cap on our membership develops a tight and exclusive community of friends. Indeed, a Tribe. We pride ourselves on being much more than a gym. We are a Tribe of athletes. To show you Im serious, heres an offer you simply cant refuse: If youll give me just 120 days, youll get in the best shape of your life, or Ill refund 100% of your investment.

Find out for $1American Mensa gives those brave brainiacs the chance to take the Mensa home test for just one dollar. Normally $18, the online test is offered for $1 through Sept. 15 at MHT. One in 50 people qualify for admission into Mensa. The organizations home test does not qualify those who take it for membership, it will indicate their likelihood for success should they take the official Mensa admission test. Here are some questions typical of the kind on the test (sorry, we dont know the answers): If two typists can type two pages in two minutes, how many typists will it take to type 18 pages in six minutes? 3 typists, 4, 6, 12 or 36 If it were two hours later, it would be half as long until midnight as it would be if it were an hour later. What time is it now? 18:30, 20:00, 21:00, 22:00 or 23:30 Only one other word can be made from all the letters of INSATIABLE. Can you find it? Which of the following proverbs is closest in meaning to the saying, Birds of a feather, flock together. One swallow doesnt make a summer. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. A man is known by the company he keeps. Fine feathers make fine birds. Dont judge a book by its cover. Pear is to apple as potato is to what? Banana, radish, strawberry, peach or lettuce Which word of four letters can be added to the front of the following words to create other English words? DATE AGE CARD SCRIPT MARK There are 1,200 elephants in a herd. Some have pink and green stripes, some are all pink and some are all blue. One third are pure pink. Is it true that 400 elephants are definitely blue? Yes or No Sally likes 225 but not 224; she likes 900 but not 800; she likes 144 but not 145. Which does she like: 1600 or 1700? Two men, starting at the same point, walk in opposite directions for 4 meters, turn left and walk another 3 meters. What is the distance between them? 2m, 6m, 10m, 12.5m or 14m Mensa has more than 56,000 members in the United States and more than 110,000 members globally.

Book makes new residents feel at homeSearching online or in destination guides, tourists can readily get information they need about Naples: the best places to dine, the best places to stay, things to do and more. But what about those who want to make a life here? Where can they easily learn about neighborhoods, schools, getting around town, cost of living, taxes, job opportunities, etc.? To address this need, Naples-based publisher Voyager Media partnered with local resident and writer Alysia Shivers to produce Moving to Naples: The UnTourist Guide. The lively, practical guide provides newcomers (or those seriously considering a move to town) insight into what its like to live, work and play in Naples. As frequent movers in years past, we always wished for a book that made it easy to feel at home in a new town, Ms. Shivers says. She adds that Moving to Naples: The Un-Tourist Guide is the first in a series that will help new and future residents settle in wonderful small cities quickly and comfortably. The next two books in the series Moving to Sarasota and Moving to Charlotte will be published this fall. Marci Seamples, a longtime Naples resident and a former Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce employee, reviewed Moving to Naples: The UnTourist Guide on Im always hesitant when a new book about my hometown comes out. There are many facets to Naples/Collier County and, inevitably, the writer always misses some key component. Not this time! I was very impressed with Shivers comprehensive yet nicely concise overview of the Naples area. A former New Jersey girl, Ms. Shivers moved to Naples in February 2000. In her mid-20s at the time, she had no real desire to call Florida home. And yet, today, she can never imagine going back up north. Moving to Naples: The Un-Tourist Guide is $24.95 at as well as through Amazon, Barnes and Noble or iTunes. It is also the shelves at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore at Waterside Shops. Alysia Shivers

PAGE 12 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATESpreadsheet parentingFirst-time mother Amy Webb proudly notates dozens of data points about her child each day and obsessively tracks their detailed progression by computer on spreadsheets, according to the provocative first-person account she wrote for in July. In categories ranging from ordinary vital signs, to the kids progress in soundmaking, to dietary reactions, to quantity and quality of each poop, stats are kept 24/7 (even with a bedside laptop to facilitate nighttime entries). She began tracking her own health during pregnancy, but then decided, Why stop now? when her daughter was born. Ms. Webbs pediatrician rated the kids health as A-minus, but the parents as C, adding: You guys need to relax. Leave the spreadsheets (out). Ms. Webb and her husband remain confident that their extreme tracking optimizes their chances of raising a healthy daughter. Compelling explanations Dr. Timothy Sweo said later that he was only trying to make his diagnosis of lumbar lordosis less technical for patient Terry Ragland when he described her c ondition as ghetto booty. The shape of her spine makes her butt ocks stick out more, he said, and he prescribed pain medication as there is no cure, per se. Nonetheless, Ms. Ragland felt insulted and filed a complaint against Dr. Sweo with the Tennessee Department of Health in July. Said she, I couldnt believe he said that. An Anglican parishioner complained in August about the blasphemous bumper sticker she saw on the car of Rev. Alice Goodman of Cambridge, England, but Rev. Goodman immediately defended it as not irreligious (although, she conceded, perhaps vulgar). The sticker read WTFWJD? which is a play on the popular evangelical Christian slogan WWJD? What Would Jesus Do? (WTF is a vulgar but omnipresent acronym on the Internet.) Rev. Goodman pointed out that even Dr. Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, seemed not to be shocked by her sticker when he saw it. The wife of Valentino Ianetti was found dead in Stanhope, N.J., in 2010 with 47 stab wounds, leading police to immediately suspect her husband, who was at home with her. However, after three years incarceration, Mr. Ianetti, 63, won released in August by finally convincing prosecutors that his wife actually committed suicide. Although the case is still officially under investigation, the medical examiner concluded that 46 of the wounds were superficial hesitation cuts perhaps self-inflicted as the wife built up the courage to administer a final thrust. Also, the wife was found with a heavy dose of oxycodone in her system and likely felt little pain from any of the 47 wounds. Ironies Germanys center-left Social Democrats posted about 8,000 campaign placards in July that it proudly hailed as eco-friendly and biodegradable to attract the support of environmentconcerned voters. However, 48 hours later, at the first rainfall, the posters became waterlogged and, indeed, biodegraded. Reported Hamburgs Spiegel Online, None of the campaign workers could have guessed... how quickly the environmentally friendly process... would begin. In August, a federal judge in Seattle sentenced Alicia Cruz, 31, to four years in prison for violating court-ordered drug treatment stemming from a 2011 conviction for stealing the identities of more than 300 people. Ms. Cruz had won a second chance (drug treatment, instead of prison) by convincing the judge that she was no longer a crook that this time, she would abandon her identity-theft life and go straight. Added Ms. Cruz, Im a different person now. James Sonny McCullough, the mayor of the New Jersey shore town of Egg Harbor (pop. 4,240), announced in August that he was selling his waterfront home because real estate taxes were too high (more than $31,000 a year) following a recent re-assessment and that he could no longer afford it. The mayor, 71, told The Press of Atlantic City that he had planned to live the rest of his life in the home, but was not even certain he could afford to live anywhere in Egg Harbor. The litigious societyA lawyer and former spokesman for the judiciary of Kenya filed a petition in July with the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, seeking a retrial of Jesus Christ and naming as defendants the state of Israel, King Herod, various Jewish elders, the former emperor of Rome (Tiberius), and of course Pontius Pilate. Dola Indidis claims that the proceedings before Roman courts did not conform to the rule of law at the time. (The claim had been dismissed by the High Court in Nairobi, and a spokesperson for the ICJ said the court has no jurisdiction in such a case, for it is not one between governments.)Fine points of the law In August, minutes before a scheduled mixed martial arts fight in Immokalee, Fla., the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation canceled it as unsanctioned. Contestant Garrett Holeve, 23, who has Down syndrome, was to fight David Steffin, 28, who has cerebral palsy, and both had trained intensively for eight weeks and were outraged by the decision. Said Mr. Holeves father of his sons reaction, (T)hat hurts his feelings and angers him. T heir decision is pretty arbitrary (and) discriminatory.

Gulfshore Blvd. N.Goodlette-Frank Rd. 261 9th Street South, Naples Pediatric and Adult Dermatology Dermatologic Surgery Cosmetic Rejuvenation Why caregivers individuals and institutions do what we doOver the Labor Day weekend, I recalled the timeless advice of the Chinese philosopher Confucius: Choose a job you l ove, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Caregivers have chosen the most noble of professions, that of bringing healthy, sustaining, sometimes life-saving outcomes to those they serve. As an organization, NCH has focused on building a culture of success to aid those we serve. Over the past decade, this continuous journey has been marked by fits and starts as the health-care climate becomes more complex and the global environment more competitive. The immediate outlook for health care suggests accelerated pressure as the major payer, our government, continues to be challenged financially. Indeed, with some predicting that the Medicare system will be insolvent in 13 years, the pressures on our industry and on all of us will not subside soon. How we react to the continuing challenge will tell the tale on how we succeed in the decade ahead. Our attitude as individuals and as an organization is more important to our success than any other factor. Keeping a positive attitude in the midst of constant change isnt an easy task. Being overwhelmed by fatigue, frustration and fear can undermine all of the altruism, vitality, inspiration, meaning and creativity that we bring to our professions. One need only look at the numbers. Studies suggest that 40 percent of nurses feel burned out, job dissatisfaction among nurses is five times higher than other workers, and 20 percent of nurses plan to leave their jobs within one year. Meanwhile, 84 percent of physicians believe the medical profession is in decline, 77 percent are pessimistic, and 58 percent wouldnt recommend medicine to their children. And more than one-third of physicians say they wouldnt choose medicine if they had their careers to do over. (Not in my case!) That, in a nutshell, is the challenge we face: To retain our idealism and our spirit in the midst of change and doubt. It all comes back to the individual and what he or she goes to work to do. Heres a great quote from Professor Christopher Bartlett of the Harvard Business School: People dont come to work to be number one or two or to get 20 percent return on assets. They come to work to get meaning from their lives. At NCH we believe this meaning to be helping everyone live a longer, happier, and healthier life. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.Healthcare Network celebrates National Health Center Week BY KAYDEE TUFFSpecial to Florida WeeklyTatiana Bejarano giggled at her daughters face paint during the Healthcare Network of Southwest Floridas National Health Center Week celebration at the Golden Gate Community Center. But her smile faded when asked about the 5-year-olds dental care. We had a dentist, but Medicaid changed, she explained. Now I have to pay and I dont have the money. Providing parents such as Ms. Bejarano with access to quality health care is the mission of the Healthcare Network, which last year provided primary care to more than 45,000 people (including 32,000 children) at 13 locations throughout Collier County, including the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. The Healthcare Network is among 1,128 nonprofit, federally supported health centers in the United States that serve millions of people, regardless of their ability to pay. During National Health Center Week, centers across the country celebrated with a variety of events and activities. The goal was outreach and education, but we had a lot of fun as well, said Healthcare Network Medical Operations Manager Lydia Posada, chair of the operations team that coordinated events in Immokalee and Golden Gate. We were thrilled with the turnout, especially in Golden Gate where it was a first-time event. Joining in the festivities were the David Lawrence Center, Integral, Radiology Regional, Early Steps, the HIV mobile unit, the Mammogram Mobile, the Collier County Sheriffs Office and local fire control and rescue district personnel, among others.

By providing a patientcentered home, the Healthcare Network is able to follow patients, ensure necessary treatment and provide preventative education that reduces longterm health-care costs.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickQ: One of our cats has become proficient at catching small birds and rodents, and brings them alive or barely alive into the house. We really dont like this and would appreciate some tips on how to change both cats back to indooronly pets, if possible. Also, do bells on collars really work, since maybe that would at least hinder her ability to catch birds? They both wear collars, but not bells. via FacebookA: If your only concern is about the hunter cat turning your home into the nature channel, the easiest thing to try is a cat bib. While it may not be the best feline fashion statement, this device hangs down the front of a cat and keeps her from getting the jump on her prey. As for bells on cat collars, they do sometimes work to scare birds away. But some cats learn how to stalk without ringing their bells. Who says cats arent smart? The better route to take is to convince your outdoor adventure lovers to accept an indoor-only life. Feline frustration can turn into an orchestra of cat complaints. Some cats complain vocally (nonstop), others make the 50-yard dash to the door their sport (nonstop), while still others play Tarzan indoors from curtains to couches. Cranky cats may pick on each other. Just a few escapes can drag out this feline focus and fury on gaining freedom. If you decide to make them indoor cats, go cold turkey. Once theyre in, theyre in forever. When you take away the great outdoors, replace it with a new indoor cat jungle. Purchase a few floor-to-ceiling cat trees for climbing and perching. Place new things to explore in the room every day. Boxes and bags make great cat caves to investigate. Place catnip mice in new places. Buy a variety of scratching surfaces, both vertical and horizontal. Add a few containers of cat grass. Buy cat toys that look like real prey and begin daily indoor hunts. The better you are at creating a new nature environment indoors, the less fuss and stress for you and the cats when changing from outdoor to indoor scenery. Mentally and physically tired indoor cats will be more contented ones. They may never completely give up trying to escape, but over time, their efforts will wane. Do you have a pet question? Send it to or visit of black cats more than skin deep If you have a black cat with yellow eyes, you have a pet whos not only striking in appearance, but fairly remarkable genetically. These cats display a condition known as melanism, which is more or less the opposite of the betterknown albinism. Their genetic code is what makes them appear completely black with Halloween eyes to match. According to National Geographics News Watch feature, Melanism (is) seen in 11 of the 36 wild felid species, (and) produces yellow irises as a result of high levels of melanin in the pigment. While superstitions say that black cats are bad luck in the United States, the exact opposite is true in the United Kingdom. After the horrific deaths of nearly 50 large cats, wolves and bears following their release from a Zanesville, Ohio, compound in 2011, laws were changed that turned the state from one of the easiest places to keep dangerous exotic animals into one of the most difficult. Ohio officials have offered owners amnesty to turn in their animals under the states new Dangerous Wild Animals and Restricted Snakes Act, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that some are just being turned loose. A transfusion using blood donated by a dog saved the life of a poisoned cat. With no time to lose and the cats life slipping from her grasp, New Zealand veterinarian Dr. Kate Heller took a chance that the unorthodox move would work and it did. One hour after the transfusion, the cat was on the way to recovery. FREE WITH A$35 Grocery OrderFlichman Malbec 750 ml.While supplies last.

THE DIVA DIARIESFall has arrived. So how do we know?As so much of the country heralds the arrival of September with back-to-school days, the onset of cooler nights and crispy leaves turning from green to gold to red to brown, we here in Southwest Florida do our best to pretend its fall. Fall officially starts on the 22nd of this month, but here in the subtropics, September doesnt mean much as far as changes go. Its still hurricane season, the kids have already been back to school for a month, and the weather seems even hotter and more humid than it did in August so were forced to use our imaginations and, for some of us, our memories. My best, most vivid recollections of fall are mostly all about clothes. Even though I was just a wee diva when my family moved here from Ohio, I always loved leaving my summer wardrobe of shorts, sleeveless tops and flip-flops behind to go to the mall for back-toschool school outfits. I might have only been in elementary school, but while my pals were flipping through Tiger Beat, I was devouring the September issue of Vogue. I loved turning the pages and seeing the tall, gorgeous super-models happily striding down northern city streets decorated with piles of vibrant leaves everywhere, sporting chic knee-high boots, wool houndstooth gauchos (sorry, it was the 0s), fitted blazers and fabulous knit scarves in cranberry or violet, their perfectly feathered hair (I told you, it was the 0s) blowing lightly in the autumn breeze. For me, fall fashion was the ultimate fashion. Now that Im truly old enough to carry off a houndstooth pattern and a brightly colored scarf, September in the swamp means that Im still searching for clothes that are loose, breathable and light-colored and that forgivingly hide sins and skin while still ensuring I dont keel over from heat stroke. This is no easy trick (unless youre 19). So, like so many others in these parts who are missing the usual signs of fall, I resign myself to what we do have to signify the seasonal change. In Southwest Florida, we know its fall when the pumpkin products return as in when Starbucks reintroduces the pumpkin latte and Publix brings back the limited-edition pumpkin pie ice cream. Also, when we start seeing Christmas decorations for sale in Walgreens, you can be assured its September. When were desperate to open up our windows to allow some fresh air in for the first time since April but we cant because its 89 degrees outside we know its September. Until its really and truly fall in Southwest Florida which is typically the beginning of November, right around the time the snowbirds and the traffic return enjoy your pumpkin latte (get it on ice), anticipate powering down the A/C in a couple of months and go pick up the nice, heavy, thick September issue of Vogue with Jennifer Lawrence on the cover and drink in 2 pages of fabulous fall fashion. Thats what Im going to do.Love those dresses!Lets stay on the subject of fashion, shall we? After a sparkling summer of preparties, Naples fashionistas finally get to shop up a storm at Love That Dress!, the annual soiree to raise funds for PACE Center for Girls-Collier at Immokalee. Chair Stacey Herring, along with cochairs Cotrenia Hood, Libby Fero and a dedicated committee, have collected more than 3,000 new and gently used frocks from beach to bridal, Gap to Gucci, so they say for the sale that happens Saturday night, Sept. 7, at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. General admission tickets are $30. The best way to Love That Dress!, however, is as a VIP ticket-holder.

Tailoring what you say on paper and in person to the company youre applying for is key, local employers say. But everythings on the table. Your phone message, style of dress, social media savvy, and personal understanding of just how good you really are and how bad all play into a prospective employers perception.

These four investment asset classes are called the traditional asset classes. While these assets might encompass the investment universe for most investors, they are only part of the spectrum of investments used by institutions and very wealthy investors. Whilst traditional investments constitute the majority of portfolios of the wealthy and institutions, these mainstream investments are accompanied by meaningful allocations to alternative investment assets. Alternative does not imply bad or weird or less desirable, but is so named because it is an alternative to traditional assets. As these investments are more complex in their terms and structure, even the sophisticated investor has to spend time understanding each alternatives unique risk/ return characteristics. There are too many alternative investment types to list. However, the largest large dollar concentration of alternatives is made as equity investments in privately held companies i.e., ownership in shares of stock that cannot be easily resold as the privately owned company is not traded on an exchange (as are publicly traded equities and bonds.) Most times the company, particularly if it is a start-up company, has not met the requirements to be listed on a stock exchange; however, sometimes, the companies have met the requirements but they choose privacy in order to save money spent for tedious and neverending public company regulatory filings and to save money spent on communications/investor relations. Another factor further limiting liquidity or resale is that shares cannot be privately sold to just anyone. The SEC requires that investors meet very high financial requirements (high assets or high income levels) as the SEC seeks to protect smaller investors who cannot assume the risks of opaque and illiquid investments. As such, the sales of shares in a privately held company must be privately arranged: entrance (to own shares) is private and exit (to sell shares) is private. To most investors who value their ability to sell an asset within a nanosecond at a price established by a large number of buyers and sellers, this illiquidity is unattractive. However, when investors are willing to forego liquidity and breadth of price discovery., they can enter a world that seeks to compensate investors for such give-ups. Some mainstream investors might think, Well, gee, real estate is plenty illiquid. True, but these investments take illiquidity to heightened levels i.e., selling commercial or residential real estate can take months to execute a transaction; reselling a private companys shares sometimes takes years and is at prices that are fractions of a hypothetical fair market value. as there is no market. Investments in privately held companies are generally in two forms: a venture capital, or VC, investment or a private equity investment. Beyond their mutual lack of liquidity, there are scant similarities. VC is generally a venture into something very new: a new, startup company usually with a new technology or service and a new management team that might be relatively young/new to entrepreneurial ventures. All this newness generally means high risk. Apple, Google, Twitter are examples of VC. All this newness also generally means the time horizon is five or more years before a liquidity event such as sale to a larger entity or going public. As VC is an idea trying to become a big economic reality, the deals are sold to investors based on a vision for the startup companies unique products and services. The metrics shown to investors are created out of due diligence but they are numbers being created around the ideas and people. Clearly, the company is not troubled since it is too new to have gotten into trouble. If investing in VC, its best to think in terms of making many VC bets. Industry pros typically explain that one-third of their VC portfolio will be home runs; one-third will be boring and a wash financially; and one-third will be total failures. Does that suggest three VC deals should comprise a VC portfolio? Try 20-25 VC investments and hope for a similar distribution of financial euphoria, boredom and dismay. Private equity typically involves buying public companies that have operational or other difficulties: some part of the way they are doing business needs to be changed and being private is the best venue for making the changes. There is no newness as the company might be quite old, tired, and hence, needing a new managerial configuration. The risks and rewards of the turnaround will accrue to the owners of the privately owned company. A long time ago, these buyouts would use huge amounts of leverage, called leveraged buyouts, but these days, the equity portion of the capital structure is often 30-40 percent. The gains will come from operational improvements and less from financial leverage gains. In private equity, there are already plenty of historical financials and the odds of total failure are much lower than VC and so are the odds of a home run. So, if you are an accredited investor and you are considering investing in VC or private equity, make sure that you carve out sufficient capital to make multiple allocations, can accept the lack of liquidity and can commit to a five-year time horizon. You can also seek out firms that will allocate your capital to a fund that is invested in many of the same investments.

They also shared some tips on how to improve. Nancy Korista: We need to make sure they have good PC literacy. If somebody has never worked on a keyboard, they wouldnt be for us. We also look for a good to high energy level. Because there are certain days with our call centers where we can be extremely busy. We also look for excellent communications skills. Our employees love to define a consumers issue and seek the solution. Paul Makurat: Much like a grocery store or any other business, the customers are coming in or calling in whether youre here or not. We want to be flexible, but personal accountability (showing up on time for work) is really, really high on that list. Nancy: Our employees are on the phone so theyre not doing a face-toface with the customer or consumer. We would like them to have a nicesounding voice, someone who sounds engaging, of course. And of course we do look for professional appearance. We do have a casual dress policy but we want that professionalism to show through. Paul: Your readers would be well served by the adage: dress one level above the job youre going for. Business casual is more of a golf shirt or oxford, no tie. But if someone comes in with a tie, it really catches my eye. FW: How long is too long for the resume? Nancy: One to two pages are certainly sufficient for the positions were now currently hiring for. If they get to be three pages long I feel theyve put a little too much detail into that. They should save something for the face-toface interview. FW: Are there any pitfalls you see applicants fall into or things that, while not necessarily a deal breaker, might give you second thoughts? Nancy: The ones that are truly theyre very excited to come in but they may get a little too chatty. Paul: If they do dress for success and then they need to come in to fill out some paperwork and then they come in in shorts and flip flops. I understand theres a little bit of a Florida culture that way. In general, I would say try to, before you walk out the door, check yourself and say, is anything about my appearance going to give my future employee misgivings? If I was giving advice to a young college kid, Id say, you cant get too relaxed too quickly. Paul: When I look through the uploaded resumes; when you look at somebodys resume and they have some pretty basic spelling errors, it does make me second guess. Even if theyve worked for Fortune 500 companies, they might go to the bottom of the pile. Thats what people have to remember. We have 1,000 people online, thats one of the ways of prioritizing who you want to talk with. Nancy: Id say the candidate needs to present professionally in person as well as professionally on paper.Molly Grubbs, career development coordinator at Hodges UniversityI think the number one thing is their showing enthusiasm toward the position, and they are exhibiting their communication skills. Being able to articulate what they can offer an employer is very important and some students really dont know how to sell themselves, so thats a weakness. A lot of people dont really know how to talk about their strengths The way that I view (resumes) is I tell my students to tailor their resume to each position. I want them to look at the company, look at the skillsets of the job theyre applying to and tailor their resume to the specific job: mirror the key words, the knowledge, skills and abilities the employee is looking for. I do like it to be brief (one or two pages), but I dont think you can just do something general, throw it out there and hope somebody bites. I tell my students do research on the company prior to the interview. If theres something you can mention in your cover letter prior to your interview why you want to work there could make you stand out. So I think tailoring is key. (And) formatting is important; something thats eye catching, and obviously, professional. I also really encourage my students to use LinkedIn. So if youre familiar with LinkedIn, its almost like an online resume. It came back really in the last two or three years as a hot social media tool for job seekers. If you are a job seeker, you should be on LinkedIn with your profile complete. Lets say you put a resume in at Arthrex and havent heard anything. Id tell a student get on LinkedIn, follow Arthrex and get an HR contact and send them a (message letting them know), Ive recently applied to the x-y-z position, Id love to interview. And the other cool thing about LinkedIn is you can see if someone viewed your profile.Barbara Hartman, spokeswoman for Southwest Florida Works On e-mail: Surprisingly, weve found that some job seekers dont realize the e-mail that they have for their personal friends is not appropriate for an employer. They can easily establish a new no cost e-mail with Gmail or Hotmail or Yahoo; remember to have a very professional businesslike e-mail. Get an idea of the feel of the company, if thats a business youd be interested in working at. It gives you an idea of the culture of the business and their customer service; and get an idea of the attire that they wear there. Dress appropriately for their interview. We also recommend, of course, taking your resume with you, taking a couple extra copies so if its a team interview you can have a copy for the different team members. (And) youll have your own copy so if there are any questions youll have that right in front of you as a guideline. One of the best ways to find employment, find jobs, is through friends and relatives. Word of mouth and networking are so valuable. So if you belong to any kind of professional group or related committees, get into attend those and also use social media like Facebook and LinkedIn. Those are very effective. We also recommend doing a comprehensive job search: in person, online, going to job fairs, networking and social media, too. There are so many different avenues now available for somebodys job search. Many positions arent ever advertised. Theyre through word of mouth if somebody leaves a company.Gary Guerrero Jr., GGG MarketingOther people talk about an online future while Naples entrepreneur Gary Guerrero Jr. lives there. He runs his web design and consulting firm, GGG Marketing, with an Internet connection, a laptop and a phone, building sophisticated websites for local businesses as diverse as a chiropractor, limousine service, and real estate company. He hires people by searching for job seekers or posting job descriptions and requirements on websites such as Craigslist, oDesk and Elance, and sometimes getting hundreds of applications. He looks at their references, background, and what type of work theyve done. Then Ill talk to them on Skype, so sometimes a video or voice conference, maybe even a chat, he said. Using this method, hes found employees in the United States, as well as countries such as India and Pakistan. They work for him on a freelance basis, helping design websites, for instance, getting them ranked high on Google or building links. Some only do a few jobs, while others log as many as 25 or 30 hours per week. They send him an invoice for their service, and he pays them through PayPal. This is the business model of the future, Mr. Guerrero says. He started building websites roughly five years ago. After working as a graphic designer at small stores such as a sign shop in the San Francisco area, he moved to Naples, where his father lives, and began waiting tables. Meanwhile, he started building websites for people on the side before making the business an official LLC in 2010. I went from building these tiny niche sites to custom, high-ranking websites, he said. HIREDFrom page 1GUERRERO One of the best ways to find employment, find jobs, is through friends and relatives.

ON THE MOVEGREEN TARDIFF

PAGE 26 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 Born in Seattle in 1994, I debuted on the stock market in 1997. Im one of Earths top retailers, offering everything from books to spoons, watches, cereal, shoes and more. I offer one-click shopping, streaming video and electronic tablets, among many other things. More than 2 million businesses and sellers use my e-commerce platform, and Ive offered cloud computing-based services for years. My stock has grown by an average of 22 percent annually over the past decade. I aim to be the most customer-centric company. My annual revenue tops $66 billion and I employ more than 88,000 people.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Short-Term MattersYou probably know to sock away money for retirement. But as you think about the long run, dont forget the short run. Without sufficient short-term savings, you may end up wiped out, or even in bankruptcy. In order to deal with financial emergencies (imagine a medical crisis or perhaps a job loss) and to pay for known upcoming expenses (such as vacations, new cars and weddings), you have two main choices: (1) Save up and earn interest, or (2) Borrow the money (often via a credit card) and pay interest (at a much higher rate). The better choice should be clear. So how much should you save? It depends. Generally, aim to have at least three to six months of living expenses in an emergency fund. If you work in a field where its easy to find work, three months worth may be enough. If youre a typewriter repairman supporting five kids, three elderly parents and six large dogs, you may want to aim for a years worth of expenses. Beyond your emergency fund, any funds youll need within three to five years (or longer, to be more conservative) shouldnt be in stocks. Stocks can be terrific over long periods, but in the short run, anything can happen just remember the 2008 stock market swoon. You dont want a stock market crash occurring just before you have to make a big college tuition payment. Short-term savings belong in instruments such as money market accounts, certificates of deposit (CDs), shortto mid-term government and corporate bonds, and bond mutual funds. Your return will vary, of course, but right now some money market accounts are paying close to 1 percent. CD rates depend on how long youre willing to tie up your money and also offer meager interest rates these days, but our low interest rate environment wont last forever. Corporate bonds tend to pay more than CDs or Treasury bonds, depending on the risk of the bond.Execution CountsOne investment that looked like it would be my dumbest was in a company with promising technology that developed renewable and synthetic fuels. It could convert feedstock into synthetic diesel and jet fuel, for example. It was doing business with the military and seemed quite promising, but had trouble getting to full production capacity and producing on a large scale. Worst of all, it conducted a 1-for-10 reverse split of its stock in order to prop up its price and not get delisted by the Nasdaq Stock Market. The stock has rebounded lately, though, so my pain has eased. L.S., Virginia Beach, Va.The Fool Responds: This is a good reminder that while a company might have a terrific technology, product or service, it might not be a great investment if it cant win in the marketplace and deliver robust growth. This company was a penny stock for years and has been quite volatile. Its smart to be wary of stocks trading for less than $5 per share and ones with more promise than profits. Your company has considered putting itself on the market. Intel Inside Your Portfolio?Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) stock hasnt exactly been on fire lately. Some think the stock should be sold, due to the companys flagging revenue growth, its dependence on a weak PC market for much of its business and softness in prices for its wares. The company still has a lot going for it, though, and much to offer investors. For one thing, it has been spending heavily on research and development (were talking more than $10 billion annually) and building a bigger position in the fast-growing mobile device sphere and other arenas. For example, it has been partnering with others to develop offerings for the health care market, such as home-based health technologies and computing systems for hospitals. Its even looking at the TV business, with its OnCue service offering viewing options over broadband Internet connections. Some think Intel has a chance of reviving the PC market with its new Haswell chip that boosts battery life considerably. Finally, consider the companys dividend, which will pay you handsomely while you wait for business to pick up. It recently yielded 4.1 percent, and the company has been hiking its payout by more than 10 percent annually, on average. Intel is too big, too rich and too forward-thinking to be forgotten. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Intel and its newsletters have recommended it.) Based in New Jersey, Im a leading shelf-stable and frozen food company, with a market value near $5 billion. My brands are found in more than 85 percent of American households and they hold the No. 1 or No. 2 market position in 10 of the 12 major categories in which they compete. My brands include Duncan Hines, Vlasic, Mrs. B utterw orths, Log Cabin, Armour, Open Pit, Birds Eye, C&W, Van de Kamps, Mrs. Pauls, Hungry-Man, Aunt Jemima, Lenders and Celeste. Im backed by the Blackstone Group and went public via an IPO earlier this year. Who am I? (Answer: Pinnacle Foods) How Long Is Long?QIve heard I should invest in stocks for the long term. But how long is that? C.R., Pensacola, Fla.AIts good to shoot for at least several years, if not many years as long as the company remains healthy and growing at a good clip, and as long as its stock price hasnt gotten way ahead of itself. Many fortunes have been built by people who stayed invested in solid stocks for decades. Keep taxes in mind, too, because long-term capital gains are generally taxed at a lower rate than shortterm ones 15 percent for many of us, vs. our ordinary income tax rate for short-term gains. For Uncle Sam, long term is at least a year and a day.***QIm considering investing in a company that seems to be doing everything right: Sales and earnings have been growing at double-digit rates and theres no debt. And yet the stock keeps falling. Am I missing something really obvious? E.D., Green Bay, Wis.AMaybe. You need to look more closely. Even steep growth rates may be lower than previous levels. Check out expectations, too. If the company and/or Wall Street analysts expect slower growth in the future, that can dampen enthusiasm for the stock, sending it down. Perhaps competitors are fast advancing on the company, or questions have been raised about its management or offerings. For investors, the companys future matters more than its past. Then theres the stock price itself. Since the company has been growing briskly, investors may have bid up the stock to lofty heights, well above its intrinsic value, and the price may now be settling back to more reasonable levels. Always look at a companys big picture. Got a question for the Fool?

Ask the Experts We Know Miromar!FIND YOUR HOME IN MIROMAR LAKES BEACH & GOLF CLUB, THE #1 COMMUNITY IN THE UNITED STATES* TIVOLI Private Setting!New homes by Lennar designed to make multigenerational households feel at homeThe number of multigenerational households has increased by 60 percent since 1990, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This change in the American lifestyle is primarily due to two trends: First, baby boomers are living longer and are faced with deteriorating pensions, a failing Social Security system and everincreasing health-care costs. And second, college debt and the amplified cost of living means that many children move back home after college and stay for several years. To satisfy this evolution in the American household, Lennar has created Next Gen A Home Within a Home. The design includes a separate suite with its own entrance, eat-in kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom, laundry room and living room. Buyers want the most for their money and are strategizing for the long-term. The Next Gen is ideal for multigenerational living, allowing for privacy at the same time as keeping everyone under the same roof. Lennar offers two Next Gen floor plans: the Liberation and Independence, with five and six bedrooms and 3 and four baths, respectively. Sizes range from 3,357 square feet to 3,867 square feet. Next Gen A Home Within a Home residences are available in the following communities: Ave Maria, Copper C ove, Olympia Pointe, The Forum, The Preserve at Corkscrew, Bridgewater at Lakewood Ranch, The Sanctuary at River Strand, Gran Paradiso and Stoneybrook at Venice. A furnished model is open to the public in The Preserve at Corkscrew in Estero. For more information, visit www.lennar. com.

On Friday and Saturday, Aug. 30-31, the dinners took place at The Cafe on Fifth, the classy breakfast and lunch establishment owned by Flemming and Gitte Madsen (who were also among the 13 at dinner on the 31st). Im hoping to develop a membership group basically by word of mouth, says Mr. Flood. Instead of a country club or a yacht club, he explains, itll be a club with a big table where you can come and we can feed you. So far, hes doing it in fine fashion. Last weekends guests arrived to find an assortment of appetizers spread through the raw bar area of the cafe. Mr. Flood poured each person a glass of wine and invited them to get acquainted and sample the small bites had had prepared (cheese with flaxseed crackers; goat cheese with speck, dates, nut and sweet soya; smoked fish on toast points with dill salsa and a yogurt-cream cheese blend; and turkey pate with Napa slaw, country mustard spread and a slice of hard-boiled egg). It was an eclectic and friendly group of individuals who quickly discovered they all had one thing in common: a love of food and wine. Once everyone had gotten comfortable, Mr. Flood directed them to the other end of the room, where a long table was set with china and crystal in preparation for a six-course meal. Assisted by his girlfriend and his parents, the chef began serving dinner. First up was a star fruit gazpacho, made with fruit harvested from the chefs backyard that very day. It was studded with bits of cucumber and crunchy fried yellow and black chickpeas. A light prosecco paired well with this refreshing starter. Next: a glutenfree crepe made of lentil and chickpea flour, stuffed with langoustines, avocado creme and a touch of rice wine vinegar. A few of the crepes were of the conventional flour variety, a strategy that the chef employed to encourage sharing. What began as couples sharing tidbits eventually wound up with perfect strangers swapping bites as the evening progressed. A New Zealand sauvignon blanc went nicely with this course. Then came small pieces of alligator meat, braised to a tender, beef-like in consistency and served with okra, purple yams, basil oil, crunchy green peas, a guava berry and grapefruit dust (zest thats been dehyrated and pulverized).

Most of us have moderate financial goals that include paying this months rent and, hopefully, the nexts. All of the writers I know hold down an assortment of jobs they edit for magazines, they teach at universities, they work on copywriting because it takes an odd mix to pay the bills. The writing life is glorious, but its also a slog. Which is why so many writers are grateful hugely, immensely grateful to the organizations and institutions that cut us a break: the nocharge writing residencies, the fellowships that let us pursue our own projects, the grants that enable time off from our pieced-together work schedule. We are so very thankful to these patrons of the arts. So when I received an e-mail last week from a man Id met over the summer offering to fund my stay at a writing residency in Spain, I was initially appreciative. All expenses paid? At an old stone villa with a swimming pool and lemon trees and an olive grove? And all I had to do was show up? Yes, please. But before I sent my delighted confirmation I had a moment of reflection. Nothing is free thats for damned sure especially not when it comes to relations between the sexes. Of course the patron would also be staying at the Spanish villa. Did I really think all I had to do was pack my bags? Journalist Ruth Padawer wrote a brilliant piece for the New York Times Magazine several years ago that tackled this issue. She explored a website, Seeking Arrangements, that put wealthy men in touch with young women who were willing to provide a certain, though not always sexual, companionship. In exchange, these women received cash gifts, designer purses and expensive jewelry. On first blush, the Seeking Arrangements set-up looked like classic prostitution. But the article rightly addressed the bigger questions the arrangements asked about our modern relationships. In the early 1900s, courtship shifted from girls porches or parlors to a commercial venture: a date. Etiquette manuals of the time were explicit boys were to pay for meals, entertainment and transportation, and in return, girls were to provide well-groomed company, rapt attention and at least a certain amount of physical affection. His money bought not only companionship but also her indebtedness. This trend continues today. We still expect men to pick up the tab and women to offer something in exchange. If its true that men use money as leverage in a relationship, then its also true that women allow and encourage it. One young woman interviewed for Ms. Padawers article asked, You know with a sugar daddy that theyre spending a lot of money on you and they clearly want something in return, but is that really any different than how it is with a boyfriend? Or a patron? The concerns raised by the article ran through my mind as I evaluated the offer I had received. I thought of the very thin line I was toeing. I considered my values, my self-worth and the thousand odd jobs I work. And then I thought: Spain would be beautiful in the fall.

PAGE 52 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 The Soviet connection also dovetails with what is also a primary focal point at The Gallery on Fifth: To serve as a Russian art museum and cultural center. Aside from Mr. Darlings editorial cartoons and other drawings, the exhibit will also feature rarely seen personal items, including his art tools, original sketches, photos and more. In addition, limited-edition prints of Mr. Darlings 1956 black-and-white sketch, Fisherman I Have Met: The Old Sanibel Slip, bearing his Ding signature, will be available for a donation of $125 to WGCU. The Hidden Works of J.N. Ding Darling is an outgrowth of the documentary Americas Darling: The Jay N. Ding Darling Story, which was released in November and was broadcast on WGCU-TV for the organizations month-long pledge drive in August. Samuel Koltinsky, the documentarys creator, Kim Woodle, Florida Gulf Coast Universitys director of development, and Olga Arkhangelskaya, founder and owner of The Gallery on Fifth, worked together to make the Hidden Works exhibit a reality. As we have progressed with the production (of the film), we started uncovering a treasure trove of artifacts, research materials and artwork, both from the (Darling) family as well as private supporters of the project, Mr. Koltinsky, a part-time Naples resident, says. It occurred to me to start putting these artifacts where people would be able to see that path of production and have insight into his character and personality. Ms. Woodle says the nascent idea popped up during a conversation she and Mr. Koltinsky were having about the documentarys airing. Mr. Koltinsky suggested they bring Ms. Arkhangelskaya (ARK-angel-sky-a) in on their brainstorming. It was Ms. Arkhangelskaya, a native of Russia, who came up with the idea for the exhibit as a fundraiser. We were specializing since our opening on Russian art, and I knew very vaguely that at a time when almost no foreigners were allowed to visit Russia, he (Mr. Darling) was invited by Stalin, she says. Second, we are in Florida, and my daughter (Leeza) and I are Floridians for many years now. Anything that raises awareness of preserving Floridas landscape and the unique ecological system, we are very much in favor of. Third is the art. Ding Darling is among the most noted American cartoonists, and cartoons as a genre have always been very popular in Russia. Having Ding Darlings cartoons in the gallery is just close to our interests.A lingering legacyA long-time, part-time resident of Captiva Island who died in 1962, Mr. Darlings pioneering conservation efforts had a profound and lasting impact on the island, Southwest Florida and the nation. He was the driving force behind the Federal Duck Stamp Program, founder of the National Wildlife Federation, creator of the Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit Program and a key player in the creation of the Americas National Wildlife Refuge System. What had been the Sanibel National Wildlife Refuge was renamed the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge in 1967 in recognition of his conservation efforts, particularly his push to ensure the 2,200-acre refuge would be protected from development. Hidden Works brings together a host of rarely seen Darling memorabilia, such as 1920s vintage cartoon plates the artist created for the Des Moines Register, a map he used while traveling in Russia and books he purchased there, artwork related to Captiva, and even his top hat. There really is something for everyone in these hidden works, Mr. Soltinsky says. We hope to have a wonderful turnout.More exhibits comingThe The Hidden Works of J.N. Ding Darling isnt the only happening at the Gallery on Fifth. Ms. Arkhangelskaya is also forming a Collectors Club for exhibiting, selling and auctioning off artworks of private collectors in the area. Applications for those interested in sharing their collections with the public will be available starting Nov. 1. The inaugural Collectors Club exhibit, Rescued from the Flames Realist and Social Realist paintings from the Soviet Union will open with a reception from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11. This will be the first time for an exhibition of this size in Florida or even the United States, Ms. Arkhangelskaya says. This event, I think, will be very, very important for the gallery, for Naples and for Collier County. Plans also call for the formation of a Russian-American Museum of Art at the Gallery on Fifth. RAMA will focus on long-term and permanent exhibits of historically important works and contemporary works by American and Russian artists via the Collectors Club, art competitions, sales and auctions. Once RAMA is up and running, Ms. Arkhangelskaya says, the gallery will house one of the largest collection of Soviet art in the U.S. and also make the Gallery on Fifth the nations sole Russian-American museum.

T hursda y is a sunset cruise with m y wife Join the Club, a nd y our options are as wide open as the waterwa y s. What does one drink with gator? In this case, a light chardonnay. An intermezzo of passion fruit sorbet and sake was light and refreshing, readying palates for course five, which Mr. Flood called Symphony of Jimmy Ps Proteins. Wagyu beef, Berkshire pork stuffed with banana and small bites of lamb sausage all came from the wellknown Naples butcher shop and were joined on the plate by orange lentil salad and arugula chimichurri. A glass of Malbec stood up well to the meats and also complemented the vegetable-stuffed cabbage rolls served to the two non-carnivores in the group. A sugarless, flourless black bean brownie and a chunk of dragon fruit served with a sweet Muscat finished off the meal. Even after the food was gone, guests lingered, exchanging cards and phone numbers. It turned out to be a unique dining experience and a great way to meet interesting people with adventurous palates. The cost of this culinary adventure was $85 per person. Mr. Flood plans his next popup dinner for 13 on Friday, Sept. 13.

A features editor and columnist at the Milwaukee Journal for 25 years, Don Chabot knows the newspaper business from the inside out. Now a resident of Bonita Springs, he uses his working background and detailed knowledge of Milwaukee to provide a totally authentic setting populated by a group of richly drawn characters who really are characters. Along the way, he learned more than a few things about writing. I never felt the need to find my red pencil. In graceful, evocative prose, Mr. Chabot rolls out an inspiring love story that transforms into personal tragedy and then into gradual recovery from loss. He takes the potential this is too good to be true reaction into this is so good I just have to believe it. The main narrative, the love story between copy editor and sometimes news writer Derry Danaher and the breathtaking Amadee Beauchene, opens with their meeting upon Amadees arrival at the Milwaukee Ledger. Amadee, who had worked at the New Orleans Times-Picayune, is a bright Louisiana girl who immediately captures Derrys heart. Everyone including Amadee sees that they are perfect for each other. Neither has had a serious relationship before, just flirtations. But now, in their later 20s, they need to grow into a new and overpowering dynamic. The relationship develops within the environment of workplace and Milwaukee neighborhoods that the author paints with care and effect. There are a couple of unpleasant, selfabsorbed people in the office, but there is a core of comrades who know each other well and form a kind of family. Amadee fits right in, and all are happy for Dan. The courtship includes lovely scenes: not only the behavior evidences of passion and caring, but also the exquisitely drawn places they share with each other. This part of the story is launched in 1971. Another thread of the story has to do with chapters of quite another sort. Most of these are set in 1974. In these, we eavesdrop at the funerals of relatively obscure individuals. In each case, an outsider shows up, usually someone who knew the deceased way back when or knew something special about him (or her). He makes his way to the lectern and presents an unexpected story about all the good the mourned individual had done, selflessly and without fanfare. These vignettes comfort and inspire those gathered at the funeral. The mourners leave feeling uplifted by new layers of understanding about their relative and friend. Then the speaker vanishes and is not seen again. Each story line builds its own suspense: one about the destiny of the lovers, the other about the mystery of the funeral-crashers. The couple prepares for marriage, then Amadee becomes pregnant and has a rough time of it. Not only is the developing embryo lost, but a virulent cancer is discovered running through Amadees body. There is no hope. The author captures the emotions of bottomless despair as he portrays in detail the short time Amadee has left. Then he follows with a masterful handling of Derrys trauma his raging sense of loss and injustice. Derrys attempts at recovery are slow and uncertain. He disappears from Milwaukee for a long period of time to visit his sister on the ranch she shares with her husband and son. Although working on the ranch and taking in the inspiring vistas bring incremental relief, Derry has a long way to go. How he gets there and what connects the story of love and loss to the self-contained episodes in the funeral parlors and churches are matters you will enjoy finding out about on your own. Surprises await you. Though a first novel, Godspeed shows a great deal of writerly maturity and skill. Sometimes it sneaks up to the sentimentality borderline, but it keeps from getting caught in the trap of excess. I find it no surprise that Godspeed: A Love Story is a semifinalist in The Kindle Book Reviews contest for Best Indie Book.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 C11 Is it worth $10? NoGetaway is so inept, even its oneword title doesnt work. Rather than getting away from someone or something, the protagonists in this car wreck of a movie are always moving toward the main characters kidnapped wife. Saying the protagonists are trying to get away from anything is like saying Die Hard is about a guy whos easy to kill. The movie is awful for other reasons as well. Imagine the thinnest, flimsiest plot you can think of, and know that what transpires here is at least three steps worse than than. Its Christmas in Bulgaria (of all places), and former racecar driver Brent (Ethan Hawke) is not enjoying the holidays. After a madman (Jon Voight) kidnaps his wife (Rebecca Budig), Brent is forced to carry out a series of random tasks (think Die Hard with a Vengeance or, for old schoolers, Dirty Harry), none of which make sense. If Brent contacts or gets caught by the police, his wife dies. With no reason (ever) given, Brent is forced to: Steal a car, drive through a crowded park, drive through an ice rink, smash into various objects and always evade police, among other things. Naturally theres a convenient side street, alleyway or staircase every time hes blocked in, and there are plenty of inept bad guys for him to trick into driving into a pole. None of these adventures do anything but endanger innocent people. Along the way he encounters a teenager (Selena Gomez) who conveniently knows a lot about things there is no way she would actually know a lot about. Apparently, writers Sean Finegan and Gregg Maxwell Parker were absent the day their screenwriting class learned that a villain needs a motive. As the story progresses, you keep waiting for a good reason Brent is forced to play this game, but it never comes. Director Courtney Solomon also tries to shroud the villain in mystery by not showing him in full profile, but all this does is reveal his bad teeth. Youre never scared of what hes doing, youre scared of him breathing on you. Always remember, movie friends: Action for the sake of action is not entertaining. When theres no motive, no chemistry between the two leads and essentially no story, the action means nothing. And the action here is nonstop, to the point where you start to feel sorry for Bulgaria for having this big, obnoxious Hollywood movie ruining its streets. Its not long before the car crashes become repetitive and boring even as they get progressively more absurd. The lone saving grace for the action comes toward the end as a camera mounted on the front of Brents car follows the villain, weaving through traffic for more than a minute. Its a fascinating point of view to offer in an extended take, but its over too quickly to make a real impact. With a modicum of thought this couldve been a 90-minute adrenaline rush that provides one last burst of energy after a so-so summer. Instead, I cannot encourage you enough to Getaway and stay away. LATEST FILMSGetaway o b A e n e >> All the car crashes were real. No CGI was used, and almost 130 cars were wrecked during production. CAPSULESThe Worlds End (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike) Five old friends reunite in a sleepy English town to finish the pub crawl they began 20 years earlier, only to find out alien robots have taken over the bodies of the locals. The comedy doesnt hit the way it needs to. Its as if the writers (Mr. Pegg and Mr. Frost) know how to write jokes for drunk dudes at a bar, but are notably less comfortable/competent when it comes to alien invasion comedy. Rated R.Elysium (Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Diego Luna) In 2154, poor people live in the decrepit wasteland of Earth while the wealthy live on Elysium, an idyllic spaceship oasis just outside Earths atmosphere. Earth worker Max (Mr. Damon) needs to get to Elysium where Earthlings are not allowed or hell die of radiation poisoning. The production design and visual effects look great and the story is intense throughout. Rated R.Planes (Voices of Dane Cook, Teri Hatcher, Stacy Keach) A crop-dusting plane named Dusty (Mr. Cook) gets to compete in a race around the world in this second-rate Cars spinoff. There are scattered amusing moments, but the movie consistently flutters when it needs to soar. Rated PG. LOCATED JUST NORTH OF VANDERBILT BEACH ROAD ON U.S. 41239.254.1080 | ATM provided.

Can you give me any clues as to what to expect for the rest of the season, especially for my favorite character, Evelyn Powell? Kimberly T., St. LouisA: Youre not alone, Kimberly. The Lifetime network show is breaking records and taking names; since its debut in June, each week has seen a steady increase in viewers, myself being one of them. And I also cant get enough of Evelyn Powell, and especially her scenes with husband Adrian. Thats due in no small fact to the fabulous writing and the breathtaking acting by Rebecca Wisocky and Thomas Irwin. I spoke with Rebecca recently about all things Maids (and a little about her stint on another fave of mine, True Blood), and she had lots to say. About what to expect for the season finale: There are a lot of things going on; by the end of the season, the question, Who killed Flora? will be answered. But 10 more questions will rear their heads in its place. And pretty significant questions, actually. There are a lot of things in the balance.Q: You mentioned a while back that Eastbound and Down had been resurrected for a fourth season. Can you tell me when it will premiere? Donnie R., via e-mailA: Danny McBride and his glorious mullet will be back for eight new raucous episodes beginning Sunday, Sept. 29, for its epic final season on HBO. Lindsay Lohan is set to make a cameo (as who, I wont say, so as not to spoil it for you). Q: Can you tell me what to look forward to in the next season of The Mindy Project? Will she still be with Casey? Deanna W., via e-mailA: Well, it looks as if Mindy and Casey might be kaput after returning from their yearlong goodwill trip to Haiti. Justified star Timothy Olyphant has signed on to guest star as a love interest of Mindy. Viewers will note that this isnt Timothys first foray into sitcoms he guest-starred on two episodes of The Office back in 2010. Rebecca Wisocky

He was extremely talented in any game of logistics, planning or strategy, and excelled at golf. He continually strived to complete the magical Holein-One shot, though I never saw him do it. He was a rich man, a New Yorker, involved in planning railroads for the U.S. government and was happily married to my mother, a delightful, loving lady of Russian descent named Ludmilla Borachenko. My mother was the world for my father and I, and the glue that held us together until she died when I was 10 years old. I was closer to her of the two parents and the void left by her absence felt like a constant hot stone in my chest. Instead of her gorgeous meals and her lively company at the table, I now dined alone from trays brought by the housekeeper punctually at 6 oclock. I dont know where my father ate. He seemed to always be in his study, brooding, as bereft from her loss as myself. We missed her laughter pealing through the house, her happiness at the sight of us at anytime, her lavender scent, her arms enfolding me at bedtime when my father would read both of us a story as my mother could not read English, although she spoke it well. I approached him a few times after her death to just talk with him and be together, but he always brushed me aside gently, saying he was a little busy and wed catch up later. I attended the best of schools with high achievement and good grades and had the best of everything. I became beautiful in my teenage years and very spoiled by the seeming unlimited financial resources; however, the distance between my father and I deepened. He was always away at work or at the golf course winning big trophies for charities, again and again and always unapproachable. I became very full of myself and my hormones and in rebellion to get his attention, became careless with the expensive family cars, racing and wrecking them. I was inattentive to my studies. I rarely got out of bed early, racking up nightly visits to clubs. Finally I was noticed. He summoned me one day to the quiet, dark study and asked me what I intended to do with my life. I answered that I would attend Wellesley College. He asked me how I thought I would qualify for the entrance to that prestigious school. I told him that if one had enough cash they could do anything or go anywhere they wanted. At that, he stood up and strode around the desk, face suffused with rage, and asked me how I would dare to think he would foot those bills for a daughter who had become as useless and lazy as I. Itching to lash out, I answered with all the long frustration in my heart, Because youre an asshole. At that, he struck me, a hard, loud slap across my face. I stared at him with hate and then I turned and left. We never spoke again and I never saw him again for 30 some years until he died. During that time, I lived off of my very fat bank accounts plumped up by my mothers estate, got married and divorced, gambled, drank, lived on the street as well as in very high-end places. In short, I sowed my oats and more. Now and then I would read about my father winning more golf matches, though I never heard if he managed to hit the ever-elusive Hole-inOne shot. Only one time was there some sign that I might be important to him. That happened when I was visiting my mothers only living Aunt in New York and arrived at the Manhattan station from New Jersey. On the train platform, two men approached me, one carrying a huge bouquet of red roses, my mothers favorite. He said, These are for you Miss Jessica. Your father sends his regards. I took them without returning a greeting and left. About this time, I was finally exhausting my trust funds and learning that my high standard of living was about to change. Through the years, I would hear of him and his skill at his golf game, and as he grew older, I heard he had a caretaker, also very wealthy, and that he and the caretaker were very close friends. I was too stubborn to admit the error of my ways and this made me continue to bully him by my silence. Even when I heard he had become physically frail and I had divorced for a second time, even then I could not bring myself to contact him. At the age of 74, he died. Our family attorney sent me a letter to the very modest apartment where I lived and worked at a nearby public library. The letter advised that I was cut out of my fathers will and would inherit none of his wealth. I would be permitted to visit the family home to collect some memorabilia of my mothers. After I began to recover from the shock, I made plans to take some pieces of jewelry and some treasured photographs that belonged to my mother. I felt as hurt and alone as one could ever feel. Somehow, I thought he would forgive my many sins and love me anyway and we would somehow miraculously be close in spite of all the intervening years, and now it was too late. I cried bitter tears on the way to his house and was exhausted and empty of all feeling when the bus dropped me off in front of the imposing home that we once shared. My feet felt like lead, they would barely move. Suddenly, I heard a voice behind me saying Miss Jessica? Jessica? Are you Harrys daughter? I turned to see one of the handsomest men I had ever set eyes on, about my age, approaching me from one end of the long, circular driveway. He reached out his hand to mine in greeting, an electric touch, and said, Im Benjamin McGrath, your fathers former assistant. I have sure heard a lot about you. He spoke of you often. He did? It came out like a squeak, I was so torn with emotions. Oh yes, Benjamin said and smiled, and it was as if the heavens suddenly were all around me; I felt suffused with light, my heart lifting from its great depths as he gazed at me, this handsome man with a kind face, a type I did not often meet. Come on in, and well talk about it, he invited, offering his arm so as to twine with mine. We walked toward the house and I then realized that my father, the Master Golfer, had planned a Hole-in-One for me. A tear slid down my check as I suddenly felt a release from the long-term heartache and a true measure of joy. With the release came another truth that I loved my father too.


FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 Canes offer support and surprisesThe first cane probably was just a strong stick, but by the 19th century a cane was a fashion accessory and sometimes hid a tool. The heads of canes were made of wood, ivory, gold or silver, leather, pewter or porcelain, sometimes with inlay and precious gems. Canes with a carving of a political candidates head were used until Franklin Roosevelt objected because he was disabled. At recent antiques sales, there have been some very unusual canes. Some hid weapons. Sword canes are familiar because of movies. But few know there are canes that held parts of a gun, including ammunition a hidden arsenal. Another was a blow gun that could shoot bullets. A womans cane had a short knife blade to use for protection. A flicker cane was made so a short blade could pop out of the handle. Most deadly was the Diabolique, a cane outlawed in France. If someone tried to pull the cane, a set of spikes popped out of the shaft wounding the attackers hand. Tap the cane on the ground and the spikes disappeared. Most canes are less threatening. There is a cane handle covered in carved grapes that unscrews to reveal a corkscrew. Another, a bamboo cane, has a horse-measuring ruler inside. One held supplies for a writer pens, paper, inkwell, penknife, eraser, pencil, sealing wax, a candle and matches. Another held a womans accessories, including tweezers, nail picks, buttonhook, crochet needle, bottles and fan. But that is not all. Imagine a cane that held a long, thin working violin and bow. An artist could get a cane that held an easel, palette and paints. Some canes are amusing. A peephole let the owner look at a picture of a bathing beauty, while another held a whiskey bottle. Strangest is a Chinese spitter cane with a silver handle shaped like a mans head. Press his pigtail, point and the head spits water at a victim.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2013 C19 seen Rosi & Rolf offered online for $20 and up.Q: Back in the 1960s, I bought my daughter a large plush Cat in the Hat stuffed toy. She doesnt want it, but I hear its collectible. What do you think? A: Dr. Seuss The Cat in the Hat storybook was published in 1957, and plush Cat in the Hat toys soon followed and are still being made. Early versions in like new condition might sell for more than newer toys. But dont expect to get more than about $20 for it.Q: Im moving to independent care and must sell or give away my collector plates. I have an Edna Hibel Mothers Day plate called Erica and Jamie made in 1985. Is it worth anything? Are people collecting Edna Hibel plates? A: Edna Hibel (b. 1917) is an artist known for her paintings of mothers and children. A series of Edna Hibel Mothers Day plates was made by Edwin M. Knowles China Co. from 1984 to 1991. Collector plates have gone down in value during the past 10 years, and your plate currently sells for under $15.Q: Going through piles of my stuff, I found my teen collection of 24 silly arcade cards called Licenses to Do Anything. I remember buying them from coinoperated machines in the late 1930s or early s. Each one is postcard size, 3 by 5 inches, and is printed on heavy stock with green lettering and a fancy green border. Mine include a Back Seat Drivers License, a Bachelors Permit and a Spendthrift Permit. What are they worth? A: Your cards were issued by the Exhibit Supply Co. of Chicago. The copyright date on the ones we have seen is 1941. A set of 30 mint examples is being offered online for $30. So your smaller set would sell for less than that. Q: I understand that antique typewriters are popular again. I have a 1935 Remington typewriter thats in good condition. Its 10 by 11 inches and is in a black case. What is my typewriter worth? A: Arms manufacturer E. Remington & Sons of Ilion, N.Y., made the first successful typewriter for Sholes & Glidden in 1874. It typed capital letters only. Remington made the typewriter in its sewing machine division. It sold its typewriter business and the rights to the Remington name to the Standard Typewriter Manufacturing Co. in 1886. Standard changed its name to Remington Typewriter Co. in 1902 and became Remington Rand in 1927. Remington portable typewriters were introduced in 1920. Typewriter sales fell in the 1990s as more people started using computers. Vintage typewriters have recently become popular with people who like the touch and enjoy seeing words appear on paper as they are typed. Value of your typewriter: about $145.Tip: To remove stains from a glass vase, fill it with warm water and drop in a denture-cleaning tablet.

Coleman, D.O. C O NTRACT BRIDGENobody plays perfectlyBY STEVE BECKERThe best players in the world bid and play their cards consistently well, whether they are declaring or defending. This is not to say, however, that they never make a mistake. Consider this deal played in a highlevel team championship. At the first table, South got to three notrump on the bidding shown, and West led the deuce of spades. East falsecarded very smartly by winning the trick with the king instead of the queen and returned a low spade at trick two. This play presented declarer with a difficult guess. Unfortunately, he guessed wrong by playing the nine instead of the jack. As a result, he went down one, making only eight tricks rather than the 12 he could have made by playing the jack. Declarers play of the nine was certainly reasonable and would have succeeded if East had held, say, the A-K-10-5-4 instead of the A-K-Q-5-4. The contract at the second table was also three notrump, and again the opening lead was the spade deuce. But here East took the first trick with the queen before returning a low spade at trick two. Declarer stewed for a long time before finally deciding to put up the jack, and as a result he finished with 12 tricks. Regardless of what you might think of Souths play at trick two at the first table, or Easts play at trick one at the second table, the fact remains that the final contract at both tables was decidedly inferior. Five diamonds and five clubs would both have been better contracts than three notrump, and a slam in either minor could have been made by guessing the location of the queen of clubs.

Syrah and shiraz are different wines made from the same grape. The difference comes down to terroir, winemaking style and marketing. Syrah is a native French grape, although it is more famous under the name the Aussies use, shiraz (rhymes with jazz in Australia and South Africa). Once thought to originate from the ancient Persian city of Shiraz, recent DNA analysis indicates it comes from southern France. Petite sirah is often confused with syrah, but is a different grape, a cross between syrah and peloursin grapes developed in France in the late 1800s, and grown primarily in California and Australia. The wines made from this grape are dark and inky colored, with a bouquet of peppers and herbs, a firm full body in the mouth, and the palette shows flavors of plum, blueberries and other dark fruits with significant tannins while young, while aging gracefully for 15 or more years in the bottle. Wines produced and sold as syrah have a style that is more old world, full bodied with dark berry and floral aromas, followed on the palate by ripe juicy flavors of blackberry, plum and earthy notes. In France, syrah is most notably produced in the Rhone district. In the northern portion of the Rhone, it is the single grape responsible for Hermitage and Cote-Rotie (where it is blended with a little viognier, a white grape, to introduce a heady floral aroma and accentuate the fruit flavors on the palate). In the southern Rhone it is blended with grenache and mourvedre to make Chateauneuf du Pape and Cotes du Rhone wines, and is planted prolifically along the Mediterranean coast of France as well. The best syrahs made in the United States are from the central coastal area of California, crafted by a wine-producing group known as the Rhone Rangers. These syrahs are usually sold as varietal wines, mostly unblended and similar in flavor and style to their French counterparts. Shiraz, on the other hand, has a distinctly new world feel and flavor, and tastes similar to a zinfandel, with peppery fruit-forward aromas and flavors, rich dark red colors and a full tannic finish. Produced mainly in Australia (and South Africa), this prolific red has defined the Australian wine business with a range of style. Mediumbodied reds, priced at less than $10 with a cute kangaroo or other animal adorning the label, are designed to be consumed close to the time of purchase; on the other end of the spectrum is the prestigious Penfolds Grange, a majestic and sought-after treasure that sells for hundreds of dollars and ages well for decades. The key to choosing between a syrah or a shiraz is knowing what characteristics you need to go with your meal. As one would expect, these wines pair differently with foods. Try syrah with lamb, chicken or stews, or pair it with wild game such as venison. The fruit-forward spiciness of shiraz is better with barbecue dishes, steaks and short ribs, as well as burgers on the grill. If you choose petite syrah, serve it with foods that are rich in fat and have lots of flavor. Try it with dry aged cheeses, beef tenderloin with a creamy sauce, barbecued steak. or lamb with a mint sauce.Wine picks of the week: Novy Syrah Napa Valley 2010 ($20): Dark fruit aromas and flavors of plum and mocha, with some earth tones mixed in. Mostly stainless steel fermentation casks, with a touch finished in oak yields a youthful complex flavor and a long finish. The winemaker mixed in a touch of viognier, styled like a Cote-Rotie. M. Chapoutier Petite Ruche Crozes-Hermitage 2010 ($30): Deep reddish color with dark cherry aromas and flavors, mixed with raspberry and pepper on the palate. Fresh round flavors in the mouth lead to a lingering finish. Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz McLaren Vale 2011 ($50): Dark rich and supple with blackberry and cherry flavors, a touch of chocolate on the palate and spice layers on the long finish. Two Hands Gnarly Dudes Shiraz 2011 ($35): Firm tannins frame the blackberry and red fruit aromas and flavors, with spice and minerals at the end of the lingering finish.

I will admit to some trepidation upon heading to Sam Bucco recently, my first visit since the chef had opened his new venture. But his long-time partner, Adel Khalil, remains a warm and hospitable presence at Sam Bucco and clearly a highly competent one as well. Mr. Tadros influence continues to run strong in the kitchen, while Mr. Khalils has waned not an iota out front. Customers are treated like treasured guests from the moment they walk in until they step out the door (something youd think would be the norm in restaurants but all too often isnt). The dining room is lushly appointed, with taupe walls, flowing curtains, a lovely glass wine storage area directly in front of the entrance and an inviting bar. Because there are a lot of fabrics and soft surfaces, sounds dont carry far here, keeping the noise down even when the large dining room is relatively full. The restaurants website describes it as an oasis of gastronomical and epicurean delights, and Id have to say thats an apt description. An oasis it surely is. The wine list is extensive, with an excellent assortment of Italian wines that pair well with much of the menu. We enjoyed a 2006 Marchesi di Barolo Barbaresco, which arrived lightly chilled the proper cellar temperature rather than the overly warm Florida room temperature. The staff here works like a welloiled machine. A server attendant deftly works the room, clearing extra place settings from the table as we arrived, pouring water, delivering warm bread and butt er in a stylish metal basket. Between courses, he silently arrived with replacement silverware and whisked away the plates with which we'd finished. For those who enjoy making a meal of appetizers, this is a great place to do that. With a dozen from which to choose along with a couple of soups and six salads, you can feast on dishes such as shrimp martini, grilled portobello with roasted red pepper, goat cheese and tomato basil oil, mussels steamed in garlic served with pink pesto sauce, Roquefort salad and Turkish style split pea soup. Among my favorites is the Turkish grilled calamari ($10.95), tender rounds of squid that are delicately grilled, imparting a smoky flavor that pairs well with the arugula, endive, lemon and balsamic vinaigrette with which they are served. The eggplant tourine ($10.50) consisted of thin strips of eggplant layered with fresh mozzarella, avocado, roasted red peppers and tomatoes, a panoply of colors and flavors that was beautifully plated. For pasta lovers, options include lasagna, linguini with clam sauce, and a rustic vegetarian dish with whole wheat pasta and risotto. You can add chicken or shrimp to any dish for an additional charge. We skipped the pasta on this trip, attracted by some of the other interesting and less carb-laden options on the menu. The Mediterranean shrimp ($23.95) featured jumbo shrimp in garlic and fresh herbs served with eggplant timbale, roasted tomatoes, scalloped potatoes and tomato basil oil. As was the case with the squid, the shrimp were expertly grilled, leaving them tender, juicy and lightly smoky. The vegetables were equally good, making this a very satisfying entree. A grilled New York strip steak with chimichurri ($27.95) came with a colorful array of vegetables, including portobello mushrooms, red onions, spinach and tomatoes. Pesto and mozzarella finished it off nicely, with a side of scalloped potatoes. The flavors were excellent and well balanced, but the steak could have been more tender. In keeping with its well-honed awareness of what customers want, Sam Bucco offers bite-sized desserts. The rice pudding ($5.50) was rich and velvety, studded with pine nuts and raisins and finished with a caramelized sugar layer like a creme brulee. Even better was the tiny coconut Key lime cheesecake ($5.50). It was light and creamy, topped with graham cracker crumbs and whipped cream. Each dessert contained about four or five bites, which was just enough to satisfy that craving for something sweet without producing that uncomfortable overly full feeling that ruin a meal when you polish off a full-sized confection. Throughout dinner, the staff demonstrated its impressive teamwork. A server attendant would arrive with the next course and hed know who had ordered which dish without asking and our server would appear at the other side of the table with the peppermill in hand to offer a grind as the dish was set before us. The server also returned to make sure each course was satisfactory. Mr. Khalil paid a couple of visits to the table as well, first to make sure we liked the wine, later to see how dinner was going. I lost track of the number of customers who embraced him as they arrived and departed. Its easy to see why Sam Bucco has been so successful for so long. If youve never been there, or if its been a while, its a great time to visit. Its an oasis you will want to return to time and again.
