At the time, Mr Hutt er wasnt sure why he was sitting in Barry Universitys satellite Fort Myers office. He just knew that he wanted to go back to school and finish what he started many years ago. Though the soft-spoken man did not fret about getting into classes with cool professors or signing up for fun and easy electives, he appeared a man weighed down with worry and doubt. Could he actually complete an academic program this time? And what about the demons he battles daily? Would he win or would the unseen forces that rage within take him hostage? At 51, Mr. Hutter is a recovering substance abuser. After four years of effort and study, he graduated with his bachelors degree summa cum laude with a 4.0 grade point average in Barrys adult continuing education program. He is now enrolled in the master of social work program at Barry. To Mr. Hutter, this academic progress and accomplishment is a reality he never thought would be his. I had this pipedream about going back to school, he said.

I didnt choose that assignment. It chose me. So you can probably understand why I waited for days right up to my writing deadline on Monday afternoon for some editor at Florida Weekly to offer me the next assignment either by phone or electronic mail so the NSA would know it wasnt my fault. Hey Rog, can you do something for us this week? Sure, Id say, smiling in knowing anticipation. Good. I want you to write about asses. Id pause for a moment in mock surprise. Well. OK. If I have to, Id reply. But to my very real surprise, those marching orders never arrived. As I pointed out previously to readers, I love breasts especially healthy breasts. The same is true of asses, but in a more circumspect way. Some asses I admire, and some I dont. Which makes me want to write about them all that much more. Without orders from the office, however, I was left to do on Monday afternoon what I learned long ago (about 60 seconds after I climbed off a government bus to be introduced to my very first Marine Corps drill instructor), not to do on any occasion, ever: I was left to volunteer. No, they didnt ask me to write about asses. So Im doing it on my own this week, simply because I can. Somebody has to, after all. Who could resist a chance to write about asses, anyway especially prominent, even magnificent asses? I use that adjective in the Latin sense, of course: magna means great. Magnificent, therefore, suggests great big noticeable asses, protrusions so fulsome they become unmistakable. Im talking about asses so big theyre self-evident to any one, across any language and culture. Whether you come from New Hampshire or New Guinea, from the New World or the Old, when you see the kind of ass Im talking about, youll know it for what it is. Youll say, There goes a real ass! Or, depending on your origin, you might say: Ahi va un verdadero buey! (Spanish). Or, Voila un veritable cul! (French). Or, (Chinese). Or, Det gr en real ass! (Norwegian). Or even, There goes a damn Yankee! (Southern). Itll all amount to the same thing, of course: a universally recognizable, certified USDA choice Grade A Ass. Now, there are many adjectives used in traditional discourse to describe such a magnificent creation: Fat, for example, as in Fat Ass. You can also say, hard ass, tight ass, pain-in-the ass, dumb ass, horses ass, and so on. But I prefer to be more specific more graphic, more precise. I am, after all, a Florida Weekly professional. Therefore, Ill just use a single specific name to describe a single specific Ass of the Week. In future weeks I may select other names for this award, but this week the winner is are you ready for this? Gen. Keith Alexander, director of the NSA. I think NSA is an acronym for National Security Asses, but it might be National Security Agency. You can look it up, to be sure. Gen. Alexander, ranked at four stars, has spent a significant amount of time in recent months and years assiduously (ass-iduously, which means showing a lot of perseverance) ignoring the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Fourth requires authorities like the NSA or the sheriffs departments of Collier or Charlotte or Lee or Palm Beach counties, for example, to prove to a judge BEFORE they do it that your privacy as an American citizen should be violated by a search because the evidence is strong that you may have broken the law. Im in favor of that, and as far as I know, the sheriffs in question, who appreciate the U.S. Constitution, are also in favor of it. Unfortunately, records released by Edward Snowden show that Gen. Alexander (GA) doesnt give a fig for the Fourth. The general, who has previously claimed that his spy agency searches the records of Americans only based on links to foreign terrorists or people who might be terrorists, has in fact been collecting data on all of us and searching whatever he damn well feels like searching, whenever he chooses. Not just e-mail and cell-phone records, but social media records fall under his Hooverian eye Facebook activity. Which means that you are now probably linked to a long chain of potential terrorists who like such widely distributed Facebook offerings as this quote (but it could be one of thousands), attributed to that pinko terrorist, John Lennon: When I was 5, my mother told me the most important thing was to be happy. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I want to be happy, I said. You dont understand the assignment, they told me. You dont understand life, I told them. So, you might wonder: By whose definition these days would you or John Lennon or anybody else be a terrorist, or a sympathizer? Not by a judges. No, youre judged worthy of tracking by a guy whose first name is General. A guy who doesnt have to answer to any civilians, apparently not even to another guy whose first name is President. As a self-proclaimed patriot, Gen. Alexander is therefore not just a Gen. Ass, but an All-American Ass (AAA), referred to by some as a Triple A Ass. Congratulations, General, from all of us here on the other side sure as hell not your side of the Fourth Amendment. C o a w h t

The Toomey-Manchin bill could have passed Congress unanimously. The assault-weapons ban could still be in place. Gun-controllers could have achieved their long-ago goal of barring the private purchase of handguns. And every step of his mayhem at the Washington Navy Yard would have been unimpeded. The media rushed, based on erroneous reports from law enforcement, to place in his hands an AR-15, the popular rifle that has been used in mass shootings before and that an assault-weapons ban would prohibit. The front page of the New York Daily News blared Same gun, different slay. The newspapers columnist Mike Lupica worked himself into lathers of dudgeon over the offending gun. They call semiautomatics like this sports rifles, he fumed. You bet. Mostly for the sport of killing innocent people, and killing them fast. But according to law enforcement, Alexis used a shotgun, a weapon, as it happens, that has been endorsed and promoted by the vice president of the United States. At a Facebook town hall earlier in the year, Vice President Joe Biden urged a mother concerned about safety: Buy a shotgun, buy a shotgun. This may be fine advice, but there should be no mistake: Shotguns are dangerous. When it comes to the sport of killing innocent people, almost any gun will do, especially if it is in a permissive environment where no one else is likely to be armed. This makes a hash of the conceit that the government can ban a few select guns and make shooting rampages less likely. Other common panaceas would have had no effect, either. Alexis bought his shotgun from a duly-licensed dealer, not at a gun show. He passed a federal background check with no problem. He didnt have a high-capacity magazine. He reportedly got the handgun or handguns he also may have used in the attack after shooting a security officer. So the Navy Yard rampage demonstrates the essential sterility of the guncontrol debate. It is true that James Holmes and Adam Lanza used AR-15s. But Seung-Hui Cho and Jared Loughner used 9 mm semiautomatic pistols. And Aaron Alexis used a shotgun. The common theme is that they were all deeply disturbed young men whose acts of murder had a sick ening aspect of utter senselessness. The Daily News got it backward. Its headline should have read Different gun, same slay. Maybe this time we can have a real debate about mental illness. When Aaron Alexis called the Rhode Island police a month ago to tell them that enemies were harassing him with a microwave machine, it was clear that he was suffering paranoid delusions and needed help. But the authorities let him go his merry way, evidently to sink deeper into the madness he mistook for reality. It needs to be easier to compel treatment for the mentally ill. There will be another Aaron Alexis. If we cant predict what gun hell use, we already know his mental state. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Climate-change protests heat upLast week, far out in the Arctic Ocean, the Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise approached a Russian oil-drilling platform and launched a nonviolent protest, with several protesters scaling the side of the platform. They wanted to draw attention to a dangerous precedent being set. The platform, the Prirazlomnaya, owned by Russian gas giant Gazprom, is the first to begin oil production in the dangerous, ice-filled waters of the Arctic. The Russian government responded swiftly and with force, deploying special-forces soldiers, their faces masked by balaclavas, threatening the peaceful Greenpeace activists with automatic weapons, destroying their inflatable boats by slashing them, arresting 30 and towing the Greenpeace ship to the northern Russian port of Murmansk. At last report, the protesters faced a potential charge of piracy. This protest is remarkable for its sheer audacity. But it is by no means the sole protest lately against runaway fossil-fuel extraction and consumption. People are speaking up around the globe, demanding action to combat global warming. In North America, a broad coalition has been growing to stop the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, as well as to stop the exploitation of Albertas tar sands, which the pipeline is designed to carry. On Sept. 21, the last full day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere this year, thousands of people drew the line on Keystone XL at protest gatherings around the continent. In Nebraska, they actually built a barn on the route of the proposed pipeline, which locals fear will spill oil onto the fragile sandhills ecosystem and pollute the vital Ogallala Aquifer. On the same day, the International Womens Earth and Climate Summit met in Suffern, N.Y. It was a gathering of women from around the world, all renowned in their own way for fighting for urgent action on climate change. Among them was Melina Laboucan-Massimo, of the Cree indigenous nation, from northern Alberta. She described the impact of tarsands extraction on her people: The tar sands cover over 141,000 square kilometers, about the size of England and Wales combined, or the size of Florida. The mines are larger than many large cities. This region we call the northern lungs of the planet, the boreal deciduous forest, and its being deforested for the mining. We suffered what might be the worst oil spill ever in Canada, with 4.5 million liters of oil spilled, which destroyed ancestral lands. We call what is happening cultural and environmental genocide. The Keystone XL pipeline requires U.S. government approval, as it will cross the northern border from Canada on its way to the Gulf Coast. The approval process has been delayed, due to massive protests. After more than 1,250 people were arrested in front of the White House in 2011, in what was the largest act of civil disobedience in the U.S. in 30 years, President Barack Obama said he would delay the decision. Since then, Friends of the Earth (FOE) has exposed a clear conflict of interest with the group hired by the U.S. State Department to conduct an environmental-impact study of Keystone XL. FOE found that Environmental Resources Management, a Londonbased consulting firm, covered up its business ties to TransCanada, the fossilfuel corporation that will own Keystone XL. Likewise, another watchdog group, Oil Change International, just reported that Michael Froman, the U.S. trade representative in charge of negotiating a variety of secretive free trade agreements, is apparently siding with Big Oil in demanding that Europe weaken its climate laws. Oil Changes Steve Kretzmann explains, Unless Europe weakens its climate laws, U.S. diesel exports, which will contain tar sands, will be less competitive. Canadian environmental activist Tzeporah Berman also was at the womens summit. She spoke about how the Canadian government, under conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has silenced scientists in a desperate bid to stifle criticism of Keystone XL. She told me: Last week in Canada, we had hundreds of scientists hit the streets in their lab coats protesting the federal government because they cant speak. They are being muzzled. To the extent that the eminent, journal Nature, last year, published an editorial saying it is time for Canada to set its scientists free. James Hansen, the former director of NASAs Goddard Institute for Space Studies, wrote on Keystone XL, If Canada proceeds, and we do nothing, it will be game over for the climate. The climate casualties are mounting, from the thousand-year flood that devastated entire towns in Colorado, to northern India, where floods and landslides from one storm last June killed more than 5,700 people. The hope lies in the global grass-roots movement that is growing, demanding serious action to halt climate change before it is too late. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Lisa Timmons was born in Chinhae, Sou th K or ea, and lived there with her grandmother until age 6. Then one day she woke up in an unfamiliar place. It seemed to be a happy place with lots of kids running around, she remembers. Lisa and her little sister had been taken to an orphanage. She was eventually adopted by a U.S. Army couple who were stationed in Seoul. They had two other adopted children and two biological children. My whole life changed when I was taken home by these blonde-haired, big-eyed creatures, Lisa recalls. When she was 10, Lisas parents were reassigned to an Army base in Indianapolis. They loaded the five children into the family van and spent 45 days driving through 22 states, visiting relatives and sightseeing. What a great introduction to America, Lisa recalls. The family moved to Knoxville, Tenn., five years later and then, when Lisa as 18, to Naples. Lisas early memories are of being carefree and joyful.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLY STORY BY ROGER WILLIAMS RWILLIAMS@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM FACEBOOK WEVE BECOME O CTOBER 3-9 2 01 1 1 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 ADDICTED TOInstead, theyre frequently people who have never met the befriended, but are free to peer through the electronic looking glass into the befriendeds life. They can also stare into the lives of just about anybody else who freely shares another online life with the original friend. The jury is still out on how the meaning of relationships will change with Facebook, but what happens is, we are now living in a fishbowl, says Russ Sabella, professor of counseling at Florida Gulf Coast University and the author of several books about social media and children. People are sharing their health concerns, their marriage and family concerns and others, probably with the intent of doing it with a smaller audience than they really have. That means that everything you put on Facebook is visible potentially to anyone who wants to see it. Although people know that, they forget it. My wife is always telling me, You dont get it, theyre not your friends, and shes probably right, says Bruce Dash, a gregarious retired Palm Beach firefighter and food aficionado aiming to write for pay about the remarkable range of cuisines found across South Florida. Facebook may help him do that, he figures but that doesnt mean its a boat he can depend on in the storm. Of the 250 friends or so I have, I can probably count on about 20. Scott Simmons (a Florida Weekly writer and real, not just virtual friend of Mr. Dash) has 4,000 friends. Of those, he can probably count on 1 to 2 percent for anything of substance. (Mr. Simmons actually has 720 friends.) So, suggests Professor Sabella, Heres what you have to remember: Information is power, and can be used against you, whether by an insurance company that begins to better understand your health situation, or employers who decide you arent really who they thought you were, or somebody else. Somebody else such as the government. The Sunday New York Times reported that the NSA, a government spy agency, is tracking the Facebook activity of American citizens. Last year, though, all that sharing and using with its intensely targeted advertising that relies on elaborate demographics and statistical profiles of user habits was worth $5.1 billion in revenue to the company, which supports 4,619 employees, according to In a now-famous and even infamous story, a few Harvard students started Facebook, led by then-sophomore Mark Zuckerberg hes now worth about $16 billion, according to several sources. Now, almost one out of two people between the ages of 18 and 34 check it every morning when they wake up, some 28 percent of them before they even get out of bed. That doesnt mean young people take to it like bees to honey, however. I think theres a big difference in the way people use it depending on their age, says D.P. Workman, an 18-year-old whose relationship with Facebook rocketed off the virtual launching pad before falling back to Earth like a space shuttle with second thoughts. (Mr. Workman is the stepson of the writer.) A lot of older people use it to connect with people they used to know or are associated with but wouldnt want to be real friends with, he says. But a lot of younger people use it as a social connector except because theres the disconnection from being inperson with someone, theres a loss of inhibition, to some extent. So you see a lot people talking really tough, or trying to pick up girls or boys. Theres a lot of pretty immature and pointless stuff. So Ive stopped using it because Ive come to the point where I really only want to connect with the people I see on a daily basis. And the ones I dont see I talk to on the phone. I deleted all the friends on my list, and I went from about 400 to 18. There was really no point in maintaining a profile at all. Not everybody feels that way. In the United States, where more than 310 million of us lived at last count in 2010, almost 240 million use the Internet, roughly 133.5 million of them getting online to check Facebook. Thats a penetration of 43 percent, just over half of them female (53 percent). Where does that leave us in Florida, here where the sun shines almost every day here where beaches lie only minutes from everyone, and a thriving culture of good times awaits anyone who wants to get out of the house or office and into it? It leaves many of us glued to our devices the smart phones and pads and computers. Florida ranks fourth among Internet users in the country, with 14.8 million of the Sunshine States 18.7 million residents getting on line regularly (almost 80 percent), but only 7.8 million, or about 42 percent, using Facebook. For deep Facebook penetration, try the state of Washington, where 57.7 percent of all residents use it (Illinois is second, with 54.8 percent, according to Conversely, those who want to escape the species we might call Facebookians would do well to move to Delaware (only 24.2 percent of residents use it) or West Virginia (28.7 percent). Thats in our world, more or less. Meanwhile, on the Planet Gossip a proverbial name for Washington, D.C. statistics show that more than 260 percent of the population uses Facebook. In other words, many people have multiple pages, which veteran Facebook users recommend for those who conduct both personal and business lives on Facebook.The impact of friendshipThe effects of all this on any one person or all people remain uncertain but the possibilities do not. Escapism, explains Stacey Chadwick Brown, a psychotherapist and director of Human Services at Florida SouthWestern State University, the former Edison State College. Its healthier than liquor, better than Pac-man games, intellectual stimulation, humor, etc. But, she warns, Facebook addiction is a real thing. It can serve as a distraction for those avoiding responsibilities. It can create a barrier to communication within relationships talking to others instead of (your) spouse. Emotional affairs can happen as well, via Face-ITS REACH IS VAST MORE THAN ONE OUT OF EVERY SEVEN PEOPLE, ABOUT 1.1 BILLION of us, use it. Half of us check in for an average of 20 minutes every day. We do it in 70 languages (translated by an army of contracted language experts), and each of us has an average of 130 friends, a word partially coopted nowadays to mean acquaintance or even familiar stranger. In the world of Facebook a virtual company that will reach its 10th birthday Feb. 4, 2014 most friends are not friends in the traditional sense.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 NEWS A9 book. Ms. Brown offered those thoughts in Facebook messages. Recognizing this, some people just plain refuse to call it Facebook, opting instead for a tag that gets to the heart of the matter. The friend who introduced me to the thing calls it Facecrack. It can really suck you in, says Santiago De Choch, a widely traveled pundit and now organic farmer and gardener. Are you kidding? You have most of your friends and family in the same place; you have all the bands and magazines and stuff you like feeding you constant updates; you have a number of exes posting pics of themselves wearing bikinis on the beach; you have the guilty schadenfreude of that Mr. Popularity or Ms. Bitch from senior high reduced to fat, balding wrecks; you have e-mail, videos, music, reading, shopping and working all for the price of one: free. Of course youll spend time there, sometimes too much. (To see Mr. De Chochs illuminating and funny analysis of Facebook, go to facebook-follies/.) So you have to recognize Facebook as a tool, no better or worse than the person who uses it. Which sounds an awful lot like an argument for guns. Can it be used as a weapon? Well, there is the potential for social (not physical) violence, says Stephanie Davis, the Florida Weekly writer and columnist who has turned socializing into a witty and even elegant community art under the Downtown Diva banner. I wish I had a doppelganger. Ive always felt this way, but these days, Facebook has added a whole new element to wanting to be everywhere at once and its even worse when I find out about a party after the fact, Ms. Davis reported. Recently, I was perusing my Facebook newsfeed and saw that a friend had posted pictures from a recent soiree. They showed that all the guests (most of them mutual friends) clearly had a wonderful time. So where was I? Not invited, thats where I was. I pouted as I clicked Like on a few of the pics just so theyd know I noticed.The value of friendshipThe heart of Facebook, though, remains a contemporary miracle of sorts, not to mention a frequent pleasure, for many Floridians, from the traditionally anti-social to the uber-social. It can help people, too. By charming people, by warming them with instant, shared experience, It can help alleviate depression, create endorphin action, create happy hormones and serotonin production its biologically significant that you can laugh. Its biologically significant to feel connected, says the therapist, Mrs. Brown. The retired firefighter, Bruce Dash, knows the truth of this well. Firefighters dont do a good job of preparing for afterwards, he explains. As a 25-year firefighter, I had a huge network, married with three kids, pets, and my phone was full. All of a sudden I went home and my phone turned off. So I went from a busy, happy, talkative person to having the rug pulled out from under me. Then later, he recalls, Facebook came along. I love Facebook. But if you have no real determination, no guts, and youre just a homebody, its only a non-moneymaking way to communicate with people who you dont know. In short, its use requires balance, a word used both by Professor Sabella, and by Madison Mitchell, a spokeswoman for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida. Mrs. Mitchell recently posted this affectionate greeting on Facebook: I cant believe my handsome man is going to be 40 a week from today! Noah, youve still got it cant wait to celebrate it with a long weekend of loving! Oh, and today also marks seven weeks of wedded bliss! Thats probably as intimate as shell ever get in social media, she says. In some ways we have lost some privacy, in our relationships on Facebook. I have to remind myself, if you put something out there, they are going to see it, she says. So shes careful, but a user nevertheless who does not see Facebook as a detractor from her street socializing. My 10th high school reunion is coming in 2014, but I already know what everybody is doing, she explains. I know whos married, who has kids, who might be getting a divorce but Im still going to the reunion. You have to balance it. I do a lot of Facebook, but I am always busy outside of it. You still have to go out there and socialize, it doesnt take the place of that. To the people Im not close to, Ill send a Facebook message congratulations on the baby, or the marriage. But the people Im close to, I go to. In effect, Mrs. Mitchell has grown up with Facebook, since her 10th reunion will also be Facebooks 10th anniversary. But the perspective for Cynthia Mott is broader. A writer and native Floridian, she relies on a wide circle of all-ages family and friends who tease, chat and share experiences the way they might at a picnic on the Peace River in Charlotte County, close to their homes. For Ms. Mott, Facebook is nothing more or less than the next step. For me, its just another form of ever-morphing communication, she explains. When I started riding in cars as a child, we only had whoever happened to be riding in the car with you, which in my case always included two annoying younger sisters who routinely stuck something over my line on our toosmall backseat! After sisters came CBs, then Motorola radios, (then) wired into the car big bag phones, (then) small portable cell phones, and now a whole bouquet of other means of instant communication and contact. I see Facebook as just another tool in the ever-evolving, distance-shrinking world of human contact. Sometimes that contact is about personal living, and sometimes its about business with a personal touch. Melissa Vogt, marketing for the Broadway Palm Theatre in Fort Myers, always responds within minutes to contacts on the theaters Facebook page which isnt as easy as it sounds. A marketing whiz, Ms. Vogt has now built up a huge following on Facebook. What would happen if Facebook vanished tomorrow? Id lose 7,200 friends, she says, sighing in mock horror. Thats not going to happen, of course. From a business standpoint its such a great tool. You could create a full-time position for social media in general, easily. Its free it costs you nothing, except for time. And its fun for people they can have it on their phone, their tablet or the computer. They dont have to pick up the phone and ask questions anymore. Trying to gain more likes, on our business page thats a daily grind. You have to engage your audience. Post things that they are going to find interesting. Our biggest thing is contests its the easiest way to gain a large group of fans. You give away tickets or do silly things. Right now were running The Worst First Date Story, which is in conjunction with an off-Broadway show, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up. So our page is going crazier than usual. Is all the new success the new friendships, the new higher interest, the new community of humans a result of the phenomenon known as Facebook? Everybody admits that nobody really knows. But for many, including Ms. Vogt, the anecdotal evidence is strong. We had a Billy Joel (tribute band) concert last year, and it was a really tough sell for us, she says. And I was in the restroom, and I heard a lady a couple of stalls over talking. She said, Im so glad I saw this on Facebook. Every so often that happens, and it feels so good. What scares me about Facebook are loose cannons people who dont think before they write something on Facebook that could hurt people. I think of Facebook as sort of like a big cocktail party. Everything you say, everybody can hear it. Theres no whispering, no going into a corner. Stephanie Davis, Florida Weeklys social commentator The jury is still out on how the meaning of relationships will change with Facebook, but what happens is, we are now living in a fishbowl ... People are sharing their health concerns, their marriage and family concerns and others, probably with the intent of doing it with a smaller audience than they really have. Russ Sabella, professor of counseling at Florida Gulf Coast University and the author of several books about social media and children Stephanie Davis, Florida Weeklys social commentator, offers a few thoughts about the Facebook community in which she serves informally as a master of ceremonies: I wondered: How many couples have gotten together who had known each other in elementary or middle schools? So I put it out on Facebook, and just about everybody who responded knew at least one. I think I know of 10. The thing is, that beautiful girl you knew in school, or the one you took to the eighth-grade dance? You were never supposed to see her again. But Facebook changed that. Some relationships grow deeper. So maybe theres a lady at work, and you dont really know her but youre Facebook friends, and you get to see the things she likes Ive seen friendships like that grow into dating because of Facebook. What scares me about Facebook are loose cannons people who dont think before they write something on Facebook that could hurt people. I think of Facebook as sort of like a big cocktail party. Everything you say, everybody can hear it. Theres no whispering, no going into a corner. So I have almost 2,000 friends and I keep different lists. I have a list for loose cannons, for example; they dont see everything I post. I have a separate list of Republicans and Democrats, too. If I post something that is more liberally bent, the Republicans wont see it. Im not interested in arguing (politics) with them whats the point? And I dont want somebody saying, She supports Obama so therefore Im not going to read her column. I dont post a lot of stuff about politics, anyway. They dont want my opinion and Im not interested in theirs. Stephanie Davis on Facebook

The Slide Fire companys weapon can spray bullets like a fire hose from a legal, semiautomatic gun by simple application of muscle, yet an official opinion of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives acknowledges that the agency is powerless to regulate it because of the wording in 1934 and 1986 legislation that otherwise restricts private ownership of machine guns. One gun shop owner told Londons Daily Mail in September that the Slide Fire rifle is not as easy to use as a machine gun, but still, (I)ts fairly idiot-proof. Fine points of the law In July, a New York City judge tossed out Joseph Lozitos lawsuit against the police even though two officers had stood by in February 2011, out of harms way, while a man attacked Mr. Lozito as part of a four-murder crime spree. The judge ruled that it was not clear enough that Mr. Lozito was in danger when the officers began to ignore him (while they were inside a subway motormans booth). In September, a federal jury in New York City upheld an employment agency workers claim that she (an AfricanAmerican) was racially harassed by her boss. The supervisor, Rob Carmona, had insisted that he could not be liable for race-based harassment because, he, too, is African-American and thus entitled to use the n-word. The continuing crisis In separate incidents on successive September days, people dressed as Batman and Captain America rescued a cat from a burning house in Milton, W.Va., and Superman came to the aid of Wonder Woman in Hollywood, Calif. (The West Virginia pair were performing at a function when they noticed nearby smoke, and Superman and Wonder Woman were posing for tourists tips when a passerby got belligerent.) In July, another Superman tackled a shoplifter on the streets of Sheffield, England, where he was appearing at a fundraiser. (However, less elegantly, two Captain Americas and a Spider-Man brawled briefly in May over access to a contested, lucrative Hollywood street corner.) Our Freedom to Doze Off, Now in Danger: The training technology company Mindflash recently revealed a feature for iPads that prevents student inattentiveness during an online course. Facial recognition software notices a user looking away (or, worse, falling asleep) and thus pauses the course at that point until the eager learner reengages the screen. (Mindflash assured reporters that the program has more serious uses, such as treatment of autism and Alzheimers disease.) For people who believe that rave parties music is too faint, an August event at Englands Liverpool International Music Festival offered a solution: The DaDaFest program featured an earcrushing sound level especially staged for deaf peoples dancing since they can hear only by the vibrations saturating their bodies; the non-deaf should bring earplugs. Among the performers: deaf DJ Troi Chinaman Lee, who claims he easily feels distinctions in his mix of hip hop, R&B, reggae, dance and electro swing. In an epic failure, according to Madrids El Pais newspaper, a 20-story condominium building (InTempo, likely the tallest residential edifice in the European Union) in the resort town of Benidorm, Spain, was hastily upsized to a planned 47 stories, but a series of architectural mistakes and developer bankruptcies has left it limping, still 65 percent unsold. Most notably, El Pais discovered in 2012 that the then-current design made it impossible to build an elevator shaft to go past the 23rd floor because of space limitation. (The architects resigned, and unconfident developers were forced to turn to financing from one of the shakier banks in the countrys feeble economy.) Oh, dear! In a YouTube video, reported by the political website in August, well-known tea party activist Jerome Corsi elaborates on the biblical importance of child-bearing and implores followers to (hold) the line on the principle that (s) ex is about the procreation of children. (S)ex is not about fun, he says. If you want to have fun, read a book, go to a movie. Evidently, Surgery Is Kinda Boring: A 36-year-old patient is suing Californias Torrance Memorial Medical Center, claiming that anesthesiologist Patrick Yang decorated her face with stickers while she was unconscious and that an aide took photos for laughs, later allegedly uploading them to Facebook. Dr. Yang and the aide were later disciplined but remained in good standing. Some hospitals (not Torrance Memorial yet) prohibit cell phones in operating rooms at all times. Bright ideas According to his road manager, pioneer 1970s musician Sly Stone (of Sly and the Family Stone) has a lot of real interesting ideas, including once trying to hire ninja chicks and clowns for his security entourage. Stones latest brainstorm, reported Londons The Guardian in August: form a musical group of albinos, which Stone says could neutralize all the racial problems that plague society. To me, he said, albinos are the most legitimate minority group of all. In the concluding race in September of the Rally de Misiones in Campo Viera, Argentina, it was important for drivers to complete the laps even if they had no chance of winning, but near the end, driver Sebastian Llamosas experienced a throttle malfunction and began coasting, still about a half-mile from the finish line. However, in a move reminiscent of actor Slim Pickens jumping on the atomic bomb in Dr. Strangel ove, Mr. Llamosass quick-thinking partner Mauricio Sainz jumped onto the open engine and accelerated the car by hand while Mr. Llamosas steered the final distance. 1892 Trade Center Way Naples, Fl 34109 Ph:(239)596-8282 Fax:(239)513-9055 www.alohanaples.comOur 25th Year in NaplesTitanium Heat Pumpsfrom$2,695.00 Weekly Pool Service from $70 a month Titanium Heat Pum p s fr o m $ Before After After Before

He mustered up courage and met with Dr. Herman. He wasnt sure what he wanted to do. But at least he was there. It became a start. He found a friendly face in Dr. Herman. It is unbelievable the metamorphosis I witnessed, she said. He had no selfconfidence. He was unsure, and now watch how he has blossomed. Dr. Hermans voice cracks and softens as she recalls the hardships and fortitude Mr. Hutter endured and applied while in the academic program. It took him a lot of courage to share, she said. For him to lay his heart on the desk. Though he is still in recovery, Mr. Hutter is now in the position to help others. As an intern at The Willough at Naples, he is a therapist who helps those like himself who are battling chemical dependency. What is Barry University?The small Miami-based Catholic university has had a satellite office and classrooms in Fort Myers for the past 25 years through its ACE program, said Dr. Charles Bell, associate dean of enrollment/management at Barry University. The program features a cache of undergraduate programs as well as several graduate degree programs, including master of public administration, master of arts in administration and master of social work. The degree programs are vital to first responders who often lack schedules conducive to furthering their education in traditional school settings. Law enforcement officers and firefighters in Lee and surrounding counties benefit from Barrys flexible ACE program. In many cases, faculty come and teach students right in their own operation centers and campuses. Chief Stephanie Spell of the Collier County Sheriffs Office who is on track to graduate with a master of arts in administration in March said the program is convenient and relevant to her work in law enforcement. Its been a fabulous experience, she said. I have got a lot of value out of it. For the 26-year CCSO veteran and the other law enforcement officers enrolled in the program, the flexibility at Barry is essential for their success. She said staff works with students who get called out of class for work. For some students, gaining knowledge relevant to their work along with other mature adults is a perk of the program. The program itself is wonderful, said Charlotte County Deputy Chief of Fire Operations Jason Fair. Everyones in the same boat. But the flexible schedule is the lifeblood of the program. Many working adults require flexibility if they are to go back to school wile maintaining a job, family and community responsibilities. Lee County Manager Roger Desjarlais said he was deep into his career when he chose Barry to complete his bachelors degree in public administration. Weekend class scheduling and overall flexibility enticed him. They were very fabulous, he said. They clearly understand what it takes for a professional to go to school.Becoming more visibleThough student after student, including notables in the community, praise the value of Barry University and its presence in Fort Myers many do not know it exists. Were a hidden gem, Dr. Clark said. The schools classrooms and administration are located at 12381 S. Cleveland Avenue, Suite 502. We cant get the acceptance or publicity because we lack a physical campus, Dr. Bell said. According to Forbes and Princeton Review online, Barry University is one of the largest Catholic universities in the southeast. The average age of students is in the mid-40s range, said Dr. Herman. Most students coming to Barry are seeking to finish educational goals they never realized years earlier. One graduate was in his 70s. Its never too late. Barry faculty and leaders focus on making educational dreams and goals a reality. School is not just for newly minted high school graduates. I cant think of anything that can stop anyone, Dr. Herman said. In reality, its never too late to start. For Mr. Hutter, the dream of going to school and making a difference in the world is happening. If I can do it, anyone can do it, he said. I want to give back and help people. My perspective on the world has changed. I have learned at Barry this is what I want to do. They gave me a direction.

Holocaust museum displays What the Soldiers Brought HomeWhat the Soldiers Brought Home, an original exhibit with materials drawn from the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida archives as well as items on loan from local veterans and their families, is on display at the museum in Naples through November. In addition to artifacts, the exhibit contains numerous photographs taken by soldiers and some from the U.S. Army Signal Corps. Several years ago, Ken Regele, who served in the Signal Corps, donated many photos of concentration camps, Allied and Nazi generals and USO events. He also gave a roll of undeveloped film to the museum. When it was developed, the film revealed images beginning with D-Day and ending with the meeting of U.S. and Soviet troops in 1945. Several items are on loan for the exhibit from Bob McDonald, president of the Museum of Military Memorabilia at Naples Municipal Airport. Among those items is an engraved ring representative of those brought back by soldiers as reminders of their time in historic European cities. Also on display in What the Soldiers Brought Home is a set of French perfume bottles, brought home by one U.S. soldier for his future bride. Six years later, he finally met and married her. Sixty-plus years later, his bride, now a volunteer at the museum, recalled this story and loaned her precious keepsakes for the exhibit. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida is in Sandalwood Square at 4760 Tamiami Trail N. in Naples. Hours are 1-4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. Guided tours begin at 1:30 p.m. daily. Volunteer opportunities abound for those who would like to get involved. Duties range from greeting visitors and leading tours to helping with event planning and grant writing. The next volunteer training takes place from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, Oct. 22-24. Those interested in reception and docent positions must attend all three days; others are required to attend just the first session. For more information, call 263-9200 or visit

Need help finding financial aid for school? Theres an app for thatLoGradApp, a free mobile application to assist high school seniors with their next step in education, is now available for downloading. Made possible by FutureMakers, a regional educational initiative, with a grant from Wells Fargo and developed by Naples-based MassiveU, GradApp is designed to inspire students to discover career opportunities, skills and education requirements for a variety of careers, links to jobs and information about scholarships, financial aid, money management and more. Less than one-third of high school seniors in Southwest Florida fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form required to access federal funds for postsecondary education, according to Dave Fleming, chief strategic officer for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and FutureMakers team leader. Understanding what type of financial aid is available and how much they qualify for can make the difference between going to college or not, Mr. Fleming says. GradApp is the first tool created by FutureMakers to help the class of 2014 take their next step toward the educational opportunities that are available to them now, before their graduation rolls around. Data released by the U.S. Department of Education show that just 37 percent of the working-age adult population in Florida has earned a twoor four-year degree. By 2018, 59 percent of all jobs in Florida will require a post-secondary education, and 1.6 million workers with postsecondary credentials will be needed to fill new and vacant jobs in Florida. College graduates earn twice what workers without degrees earn, according to federal government figures. Developed based on feedback from members of the education community. GradApp addresses many of the needs of those facing post-secondary educational funding challenges. The app serves as an interactive toolkit to help students navigate and manage post-secondary educational resources and funding. We have found that many of our graduating students, especially those challenged by economic and environmental barriers, are not aware of how to take the next step in their education whether it be some type of college or technical school, says Marshall Bower, president and CEO of the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools and FutureMakers team member. GradApp is aimed at increasing the number of regional students who fill out the FAFSA form and ultimately go on to a college or technical school to gain valuable higher education and job skills, he adds. FutureMakers is the Southwest Florida Community Foundations first regional call to action evolving from its 3D Initiative Data, Dialogue and Decisions that began last year. The collective force of the five-county 3D Initiative team is aimed at engaging local donors as well as creating funding opportunities from outside the area. The 3D Initiative team determined that the widening educational gap the difference between the number of students going on to college or other postsecondary programs, and the number of educated workers needed is a critically important issue that could be addressed and impacted through a regional strategy. More than a dozen stakeholders from the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, Southwest Florida Works, The Education Foundation of Collier County-Champions For Learning and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast make up the FutureMakers coalition. In addition to launching GradApp, FutureMakers is aiding high school seniors through one-on-one and group mentoring, FAFSA workshops, financial aid application support and career coaching. As a result of the regional focus on these college-access issues and the support of FutureMakers, we are already seeing a significant impact for students in Golden Gate High, with a 7.1 percent increase in students completing the FAFSA and gaining financial-aid opportunities that they would not otherwise have had, says Susan McManus, president of the Education Foundation of Collier County-Champions For Learning. Lets face it, Mr. Fleming adds. There are not enough guidance counselors to handle the need for assistance among our high school seniors, and many parents in economically challenged areas might not have attended college or a technical school so are at a loss of how to help their kids access funding. Funding and scholarships are being left untouched. Its up to us to help these kids have the bright future thats available to them.

Bar eld Dr. Bald Eagl e Drive HEALTHY LIVINGVolunteer trustees help guide the NCH Healthcare SystemOne mark of a great hospital is the support it gets from community leaders, particularly those who volunteer to serve on its board of trustees. We are fortunate at NCH to have such leaders helping guide us as we proceed on our journey to ensure longer, happier and healthier lives for all of us and our neighbors. These highlights of the most recent meeting of our 17-member board offer a glimpse of how our trustees are confronting important issues, including the five major NCH tactical initiatives. Primary care: This has emerged as a key consideration among physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants within and outside our community, especially as our region resumes its growth. The adoption of national health care means that more people will have insurance and that we will need more capacity for primary care. We possess the network and the infrastructure to support and welcome new practices. In-patient care model: Right now, more than 60 percent of our in-patients are cared for by hospitalists, making this service a focus for quality, patient satisfaction and efficiency. Continuing to improve our care and service for patients might involve learning from the best practices of others. This topic evoked great discussion at the board meeting. Telehealth: In collaboration with our IT partner, Cerner, and our longtime NCH friend, Welch Allyn, we are exploring ways to employ Smart Rooms in patient homes for continuous monitoring, either after a hospitalization or even instead of a hospitalization. Population health: Locally, the Greenway Project is a great example of ways to encourage people to stay mobile and fit. The Downtown Coalition, consisting of citizens and business owners in downtown Naples, has been a great supporter of this effort. Mayo affiliation: Our Mayo colleagues were recently on campus to share their physician-led course for better patient-physician communication. We continue to grow our relationship, as the Mayo Clinic Care Network itself grows; the most recent edition is ThedaCare, a prestigious five-hospital system with 22 physician clinics in Wisconsin. Also at their most recent meeting our trustees reviewed and approved our strategic plan and budget, both of which underscore the increasingly difficult environment all of health care faces in our globally competitive world. Our recent Moodys report highlighted a daunting outlook while affirming our current good bond rating of A2. Net/net, the Board agreed that we have been smart and prudent getting our house in order these past years so that we remain strong financially with increased reserves, even while our earnings potential, just like the rest of the industrys, is cloudy in an uncertain health care environment. What is certain is that Southwest Florida needs a strong and vibrant NCH. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. David Lawrence Center celebrates leaders in the recovery community SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYAs part of the 24th annual National Recovery Month, the David Lawrence Center celebrated local individuals and organizations for their contributions to support those in recovery. The center is the only comprehensive, nonprofit mental health and substance abuse treatment facility serving children, adults and families in Collier County. This years National Recovery Month theme Join the Voices for Recovery: Together on Pathways to Wellness highlighted that family, friends and community members can support individuals throughout the recovery process. The theme also emphasized that there are many paths to wellness, including professional treatment, medical care, self-help and group support, and that each person embarks on his or her own unique path. This years David Lawrence Center honorees for National Recovery Month honorees are: Drug Free Collier, a coalition of concerned citizens that advocates policy change and recently implemented an ordinance against the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana and bath salts in Collier County Drug Free Collier also works directly with teens at several schools through the C.O.R.E. club to alter social norms about juvenile alcohol and drug use.

He chairs recovery meetings and coordinates alumni involvement in a variety of capacities in community-based and onsite 12-step meetings at the David Lawrence Center. He is also the alumni association liaison to the Collier County Drug Court, and he regularly sponsors men in the recovery community and inspires them toward lifechanging wellness. Lt. George Welch of the Prevention Services Bureau, Community Outreach Division of the Collier County Sheriffs Office As coordinator of the CCSO crisis intervention team, Lt. Welch has trained 650 criminal justice professionals how to react appropriately to emergency situations involving mental illness. His dedication to the mental health field expands to his posts as a board member for David Lawrence Center and the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Collier County. Naples Equestrian Challenge, recognized as a nonprofit treatment partner NEC subsidizes services that assist David Lawrence Center clients in recovery from substance abuse and children with behavioral health needs through the powerful experience of equine-facilitated psychotherapy.

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. Not only that, Ill also buy you the latest release of P90X for wasting your time. Thats how confident I am youll love being a part of the Tribe! But just like all other Iron Tribe locations ... these 300 membership slots will sell out! Dont get put on a waiting list.

With that in mind, the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, through a grant from the American Cancer Society, holds its first PACE Conference to acknowledge the special needs of caring for young cancer survivors and managing the long-term effects of the disease and its treatments. Teens and young adult cancer survivors, their families, caregivers and healthcare professionals who work with them are all encouraged to attend from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa in Fort Myers. Its important we recognize that most survivors will develop health issues later in life, explains Dr. Emad Salman, the hospitals director of pediatric hematology/oncology. Their overall health needs to be monitored on a regular basis by a professional who is familiar with these risks, he adds. Early diagnosis typically leads to easier treatment, or possibly prevention of conditions associated with cancer survivorship. Experts in the field of pediatric cancer survivorship will discuss potential late effects of treatment, how to access community and health-care resources, healthy eating and nutrition, navigating insurance and maintaining financial stability. Local pediatric cancer survivors will also give testimonials. The conference is free, but registration is required by Friday, Oct. 11, and is limited to 100 participants. Child life specialists and volunteers will be on hand to occupy children so parents can attend the sessions. To sign up or more information, call Sarah Evangelista at 343-6027.

Pets of the Week PET TALESHelp an old friendSimple changes can improve a senior pets quality of life BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickWhen I started writing about pets for a living almost three decades ago, I had one middle-aged dog and one young one. When I sat down to write this article, my final Pet Connection, I again have one middle-aged dog and one young one (as well as three cats, one horse, two goats, two ducks and 23 chickens, but whos counting?). In the years between that first column and this one, Ive held many pets in my arms at our veterinarians for the final goodbye, most of them dogs. Even though I know the signs of aging pets mean the hardest part of sharing a life with them is inching ever closer, I never regret having an old dog around. To me, an older dog is one of the most beautiful of lifes many gifts to us. It doesnt matter what time has done to the animals actual appearance an older dog looks special to me, and always will. I know Im not alone in this feeling, but I sometimes realize that I am in the minority when it comes to leveraging the strategies often simple and relatively inexpensive that can make an older dog feel years younger. This time can be a special one for both of you, but its up to you to make the most of it. The place to start is with your veterinarian. With my senior pets, I go to twice-yearly comprehensive wellness exams, which include not only a complete physical and dental examination, but also diagnostic tests to see whats going on under the hood. With my last three dogs, those diagnostics paid off by revealing health issues that werent yet showing, including cancer and renal failure. In all three cases, diagnosing, addressing and treating the conditions early allowed me to enjoy extra time with all three of these dogs. But even when tests reveal nothing abnormal, Ive been able to take my veterinarians advice based on those twiceyearly visits to improve the lives of my senior dogs. My veterinarian has been able to suggest dietary changes and nutritional supplements, for example, that eased the pain of arthritis. Ive always worked in partnership with my veterinarian, and thats never more helpful than when managing an aging pet. Once I have a pets medical needs addressed, I look at changes to make at home. These include: Beds. Think soft. Think cushioned. Think low. Think heated. Your dog will thank you for all of these comforts, especially in cold weather. Clothes. Older dogs, like older people, have a more difficult time maintaining their body temperature. This problem is even more pronounced in slender, short-coated breeds like the greyhound or whippet. So check out the sweater selection at your local petsupply store. Ramps and steps. If your dogs are allowed on the couch and the bed, consider buying or building steps to help the dog who can no longer make it in one jump. A permanent ramp going down the back-porch step or a slide-out one to help your dog into the car will also be appreciated. The most important thing you can do for an older dog? Keep him moving, every day (avoid weekend warrior syndrome), and keep his weight at or just below normal. For my dog Heather, I added a life preserver so she could continue to swim almost daily in the river near our home, providing her with low-impact exercise that wasnt overwhelming. In the 30 years since I started helping others help their pets, nothing makes me happier than thinking about how many wonderful pets Ive known and not just my own, of course. You cant make time slow down, and you cant change the too-short life span of the animals we adore. But you can make the most of the time your pet has, and you should always try. Start by talking to your veterinarian, today. Gina Spadafori has retired from the Pet Connection team. Kim Campbell Thornton, an award-winning writer and the author of many pet-care books, has taken over as Dr. Marty Beckers writing partner for Pet Connection.

I realize that our little corner of the Sunshine State is by no means New York City, and I know its OK to enjoy a more casual fashion vibe in the tropics but yall, there are a few things that need to be stopped. Fanny packs. Just no. Why am I seeing so many lately? And most importantly, why anyone would choose to ADD bulk to that particular area of the body is completely beyond me. Look, my brief foray into running gave me heel spurs (lesson learned: Stay on the couch), so I had to buy Crocs, but there truly are OK-looking Crocs mine are black with a wedge heel and NO ONE ever guesses theyre Crocs. Unless youre in your backyard gardening (and NO ONE one can see you), get rid of the lime green Crocs with the air holes. Dont even wear those to Publix. Sadly, I was at a recent event and spotted a grown woman in pigtails. I dont even think thats OK for the gym, but at an event? Pigtails only look cute on 6-year-olds. If youre 40 years old and wearing pigtails, you need better friends to stop you from doing that. Men folk: I just dont think tank tops work on you guys. Maybe while lounging at home or while running (see warning above about running). Its just that I dont understand why a dude would think exposed armpit hair is enticing or fashionable. People are wearing their pajama pants everywhere. While I agree that pajama pants have gotten cuter (thanks, Old Navy!), they are stillnot fit to wear to a party unless its a slumber party. Im sorry, Im not trying to hurt Britney Spears feelings (because, you know, she probably reads this column never), but Uggs are ridiculous looking, period. And Uggs coupled with Daisy Duke cut-off shorts looks almost comical and not in a good way. No more Uggs with shorts. Its a bad idea for Britney and for the rest of the world. Im guessing thats enough for now. Im sure as we get into season, Ill be seeing more things I cant unsee. But Im prepared. I will try not to scream in frustration at the first soiree where I spot a woman in a strapless gown with tan lines on her chest and shoulders. Maybe Ill just get cards printed up that read: They make selftanner to cover those up. Someone has to tell them sigh.The first high tea of seasonMuch like getting our tan lines under control for the start of strapless season, news of high tea at the home of this years president of the Opera Naples Guild is a sure sign that our social calendars are about to start getting crowded. I had the nicest chat with Natasha Lidow recently about some of the things she and others in the Guild are planning in their quest to raise funds and awareness for Opera Naples. First of all, shes hosting a high tea (the kind with pinkies up, she laughs) at her home on Thursday, Oct. 10. In addition to enjoying tea and fancy treats, Guild members and their guests will hear from Ron Bowman, president of the Naples Opera Society, about the seasons first performances of the Opera Naples troupe. Two chamber operas The Telephone and The Medium will be presented in the Daniels Pavilion at ArtisNaples on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 18-19. The Telephone is billed as a light romantic comedy, whereas The Medium, complete with a fake psychic, murder and mayhem, sounds like the perfect precursor to Halloween. Mr. Bowman will enlighten his tea-party audience with details about both. If youd like to know more about the perks and privileges of membership including attending next weeks high tea in the Opera Naples Guild, Ms. Lidow would love to hear from you.

B7-8 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 Blast offWHEN HE TURNED 35, FRIENDS BOUGHT Dennis Rehm a water-propelled jetpack flight. On that hot September morning he found himself rising out of the water and up into the air above a lake at Revolution Cable Park in North Fort Myers. He flew the personal flying machine up and down a length of the lake, a little unsteadily, kind of like James Bond testing the latest spy gizmo. I was a little bit afraid, admitted Mr. Rehm, a police officer from Hamburg, Germany, who was vacationing in Southwest Florida. (But) when you relax, you can drive perfectly. Still dripping lake water and exhilarated after the flight, he added, Id do it again. Barry and CJ Berger, the owners of the Naples-based Captain CJs Jetpack Adventures, hosted Mr. Rehms ride. The husband-and-wife team were among the first in Southwest Florida to offer the thrill of a jetpack ride when jetpacks first started being sold commercially in 2011. At that time, the water toys cost almost $100,000 each, Mr. Berger said. They bought two and have already broken event on the investment, he added. He got the idea for a jetpack from an article he read about Snooki of Jersey Shore fame using one. He thought it would be a good addition to the manatee sightseeing business he operates just south of Naples. The jetpacks are manufactured by Dania Beach-based Jetlev Technologies. The company uses a model designed by a Canadian man, Raymond Li, who first sketched out his idea in 2000 and SEE JETPACK, B4 EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYTourist Dennis Rehm steers a jetpack propelled by water.

Investors generally dont want to find themselves in an investment position that is opposite to the central banks intent for the economy and for the bond/equity markets. Hence, the bull market expressions: Dont fight the Fed and The Feds got your back. How does an investor know what the Feds intent is? The Fed often gives very clear signals, akin to the childhood game of Red light! Green light! If the Fed takes actions to lower interest rates and ease credit conditions (or suggests it will do so), then most often this is a green light for equity and bond investors. If the Fed takes action to raise rates and tighten credit, it is correspondingly a red light for bonds, certainly, and possibly for equity investors. For the past four-plus years, the U.S. central bank has been the wind in the sails for bond and equity investors. Through its several-fold quantitative easing, the Fed has been at the epicenter of the supposed economic recovery. This recovery has been weak, and accomplished through great incurrence of debt on the Feds balance sheet. The U.S. equity and bond markets could be at important inflection points. The U.S. Bond market has been in a bull market of rising prices and lower rates for close to 30 years. The U.S. equity market has been in bull mode since March 2009, having experienced one of the longest, strongest, sustained percentage advances in the past 100 years, possibly due to all the Feds monetary measures. In slang investment vernacular, these markets are long in the tooth. If this is on investors minds, it is very much on the Feds mind as well. Reading the mind of the Fed has been easier in the past. The Fed has historically been straightforward about intent and actions (whether popular or not) and has moved decisively and not suddenly retreated upon signaling a monetary policy reversal. Also, what makes reading the Feds signal clear is the economic context within which the signal is given. For instance, if the economic environment was in recession and the Fed was waving the flag of lower rates as its monetary goal, then chances were pretty good that rates would go lower and the bond and equity bull markets could charge ahead. However, if the economy was strong and the Fed was declaring the equity market had frothy valuations (for example, the dot-com bubble) then chances were good that the Fed would take actions to raise interest rates, trim equity expectations and cut off bond gains. Despite historically greater clarity, investors who are now trying to read the Feds tea leaves are very confused. Investors think they hear and see the Fed signal that interest rates will rise only to hear that interest rates will not rise, and vice versa. Easing will be tapered until easing wont be tapered. On-again and off-again messages give the investing public concern that the Fed wants to get out of the business of easing and would exit this role, except that the credit markets would (and recently did) sell off deeply. Investors have also become confused by leadership at the Fed. After many years under Ben Bernanke, years that made for big equity and bond gains, President Obama made it clear that the Fed chairman would soon be replaced and a short list of candidates was being developed, without valid reasons given. Succession to Bernanke only made Fed policy more unclear, as some candidates were dovish and others want the Fed to put on the brakes. The credentials of the candidates for replacement seemed to take a backseat to the disposition of the candidates on interest rates. Now that hawkish Larry Summers has declined candidacy, it appears that dovish Janet Yellen will be appointed. And so went the bond market; up, then down, then up, etc. Investors often incorrectly make an assumption that the Fed really has nailed quantitative easings cause/ strategy and effect. They assume that the Fed has its monetary manipulations down to a science. However, it seems that the Fed recognizes it is easing in unchartered waters; Bernanke et al are figuring out the next part of their game plan with some temerity. For instance, this summers statement that QE would be tapered by end of the year was not wanted by the bond market and it had a major sell off. So the Feds strategy then reversed. The Fed said that tapering would not happen and then the bond market rallied. So, the Fed is feeling the markets out to see how much price sensitivity there is to its withdrawal of easing. Bond holders found out the hard way that the market is highly sensitive to a change in Fed policy. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

Now there are at least 10 businesses that Jetlev calls flight centers scattered throughout Florida, including CJs, Red Sail Sports Aruba in Palm Beach and Rocketman in Key Largo. Each Jetlev set-up comes with a gasoline-powered motor that stays in a pod on the water. The pack itself is connected to the pod by a long hose; it can rise 30 feet in the air, has sensitive steering and can be remote controlled. Getting the feel of itIt doesnt take physical strength to fly the jetpack. Little small movements thats all there is to flying, Bruce Norton of Captain CJs advised Mr. Rehm on the morning of his birthday flight. A dozen or so of Mr. Rehms friends and family had gathered to watch and cheer him on during a 30-minute session. When he was first buckled in, he looked concerned. After all, with the lifejacket tightened to a lung-squeezing fit and a helmet secured on his head, it probably seemed as though he would sink straight to the bottom tangled in gear. When he jumped in the water, however, the jetpack floated nicely (it also has fail-safe devices that allow the wearer to shed the whole contraption easily or cut the engine). Mr. Rehm floated on his back for a minute until Mr. Norton, on a jetski, pulled him out into the lake. With a button under the throttle, Mr. Rehm started the jetpack engine. Then Mr. Norton used a remote control to lift him up to his knees and then his ankles. Soon Mr. Rehm was airborne, zooming up and down the length of the lake, with Mr. Norton offering calm encouragement and direction through the headset built into his helmet. Wearing a wide grin, Mr. Rehm got out of the water exclaiming that he wanted to go higher Mr. Berger said that by their second time out, most clients are ready for some tricks, such as landing on the back of a jet ski or shooting up out of the water. Some with advanced skills fly upside down or pretend to run across the water, showboating. Indeed, jetpacks seem to hold unlimited trickster promise.Coming down in priceThe early cost priced most consumers out of the jetpack market. But Jetlev is selling a new R200x model on its website now for $68,500, and the price is expected to continue to drop dramatically. Eventually the price will come down and individuals will own jetpacks, Mr. Berger predicted. The new addition to his business has rapidly gained popularity, he said. CJs Jetpack Adventures books flight reservations on the Gordon River near downtown Naples and at Revolution Cable Park in North Fort Myers. The regular cost is $190 for a 30-minute session; through Oct. 15, CJs is offering a $99 special. Its been popular for birthday parties, corporate events and even grandparents, Mr. Berger said. We were surprised. Weve had teenagers who get a big charge out of this and women over 75 who get a big kick out of trying it.

The brands under my roof include one of the top names in pianos, founded in Manhattan in 1853 by a German immigrant. (Its name is part of mine.) My other offerings include Bach Stradivarius trumpets, Selmer Paris saxophones, C.G. Conn French horns, Leblanc clarinets, King trombones and Ludwig snare drums. Through my online music retailer, ArkivMusic, I offer classical music. I rake in more than $350 million annually, and the Paulson & Co. investment company is aiming to buy me.

Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to or via regular mail c/o this newspaper, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Competitive ForcesWhen studying a company as a possible investment, you should develop a solid understanding of its industry. Harvard Business School professor Michael Porter laid out five competitive forces in his book Competitive Strategy (Free Press, $40). Give them some thought when researching businesses: Threat of entry. Assess how expensive it is to enter the industry, the economies of scale, switching costs and brand value. Its easier, for example, to enter the lawn service industry than the automobile industry one requires some relatively inexpensive equipment, while the other requires factories, distribution networks and much specialized knowledge.Switching costs protect companies, too. When consumers can easily switch from one product to another, companies have to work harder to keep them. Brands also matter. Many consumers would rather buy a brandname product than an unknown brand. Bargaining power of suppliers. There are only a few airplane suppliers (think Boeing and Airbus), so if youre running an airline, its difficult to play one against the other, negotiating for a great price. Meanwhile, if hospitals need to buy a certain drug, they dont have many options.When there are many suppliers, they generally have to compete more to win business, and that can lower prices for buyers. Bargaining power of buyers. This is affected by brand power, switching costs, the relative volume of purchases, standardization of the product, and elasticity of demand (where demand increases as prices fall, and vice versa). WalMart can dictate terms to many suppliers because of its size. Availability of substitutes. The cable TV business is threatened by the growth of substitutes such as streaming video. Competitive rivalry. The more competitive an industry is, the more likely you are to have price wars and reduced profitability. Examples include supermarkets, airlines and hotels.Consider these forces, and you might determine that an industry is more or less attractive than you thought. Impatience HurtsI manage my brothers portfolio and my own. I bought Visa at $110 for the two of us. When it was near $130, I called it quits. Boy, that was dumb it has recently been near $180. I made my brother continue to hold it, and hes sitting pretty. Sometimes I feel like I give him better advice than I give myself. There are lots of these examples. I bought 3-D Systems at $33 for my brother after it plummeted, and I sold it for around $40. Its now near $52. I bought Bank of America at $6.50, watched it fall, and sold it once it returned to $6.50. It hit $15 later. So many future profits missed! I also bought Coffee Holding Co. in 2011 on the recommendation of a CNBC article. I held for a 30 percent loss before I concluded that it was a bad position. Bottom-line? Have confidence in the long-term profitability of the companies you believe in. Ignore the volatility and noise all around you. G.L., onlineThe Fool Responds: Amen. Patience can be quite profitable. A Steely StockIf you expect our recovering global economy to boost demand for steel as more construction and infrastructure projects get underway, then you should consider adding steel to your portfolio. Meet Nucor (NYSE: NUE), a compelling steel company.Nucor has grown into the largest U.S.based steel producer by doing things differently. For starters, none of Nucors plants are unionized. But it still treats its employees well, offering a performance-based compensation plan including profit sharing and a 401(k). (Thats right no pension.)The company hasnt laid off an employee for financial reasons in more than 30 years. Unlike its rivals, Nucor has been profitable in almost every year of the past decade, even with a recent oversupply depressing steel prices.Whereas steelmakers typically have huge central facilities, Nucor employs smaller, efficient, locally based mini-mills. It also crafts a lot of steel from scrap metal instead of via metallurgical coal. Nucor recently bought Skyline Steel, specializing in large-scale steel foundations, which will boost its range of operations.With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the 30s, the stock doesnt appear to be cheap. But those numbers will change as earnings pick up, and Nucor merits at least a spot on your watch list. For patient believers, its dividend recently yielded 3.1 percent. (The Motley Fools newsletter services have recommended Nucor.) Founded in 1970 and based in Kans as Cit y, Mo., Im a publisher and also the worlds largest independently owned newspaper syndication company, distributing content to print, online and mobile platforms. Brands under my roof have included Doonesbury, Dear Abby, Miss Manners, Calvin and Hobbes, Garfield, Peanuts, Dilbert, For Better or For Worse, Cathy, Ziggy and The Motley Fool. Each year, I publish the work of more than 240 syndicate creators and writers and more than 150 books. Im also the nations top calendar publisher, selling more than 15 million calendars annually. Oh, and greeting cards, too. Who am I? (Answer: Andrews McMeel Universal) Splitting SharesQWhere can I look up a companys recent stock splits? H.W., Prescott, Ariz.AYou can start with the company itself, by calling its investor relations department. If youre online, head to, enter the companys ticker symbol and click Look Up. Then choose Basic Chart in the blue bar on the left. Right under the chart and above more data youll find a list of recent splits. A :1 notation reflects a split where shareholders got three shares for every one they owned. For lists of past and upcoming splits, visit html. Stock splits are generally non-events, though. The share price gets adjusted down in proportion to the increase in share count. So while suddenly owning more shares can be exciting, its not too meaningful. Pre-split, you might have owned 100 shares priced at $40 per share (total value: $4,000). Post-split, your 200 shares are worth about $20 each, for a total of $4,000. Not much has changed. ***QWhen stocks fall, should I move my money into bonds, and vice versa? A.N., Endicott, N.Y.ADo that, and youll be selling low, instead of buying low and selling high. Think for yourself and dont follow the crowd. Decide, for example, how much of your nest egg you want to keep in bonds. Young people might want to be close to 100 percent in stocks, while those near or in retirement might want to have a chunk of their money in bonds. Stick with your desired allocation until you have a good reason to change it. The reason to diversify across categories is so that when one slumps, the other might offset the loss (though that doesnt always happen). Healthy fallen stocks tend to recover.Got a question for the Fool?

There are so many layers upon layers upon layers (in this play): whos in power, sexual politics, gender politics, says Kristen Coury, director of the production of Venus in Fur that opens the new season for Gulfshore Playhouse on Friday, Oct. 4, at The Norris Center in Naples. Its just an incredible catand-mouse scene the entire time, Ms. Coury adds. Its the complete total opposite of Fifty Shades of Grey, which is all spelled out in lurid detail.

PAGE 54 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSToo much space can be a relationship liabilityA friend recently told me this story: At the opening of a hot new restaurant in a big metropolitan city, the woman who owned the establishment made her way to my friends table. The woman was a famous restaurateur, and on that particular night she was glowing and beautiful, pregnant with her first child at 41. My friend and this woman began talking about relationships, and the restaurateur admitted that only two years before she had given up on the prospect of ever finding love. A stunning woman from a large Italian family, she had imagined that her life would be filled by a husband and children. She never anticipated that at 39 she would still be single. And though her professional life was successful and in many ways she lived a charmed existence, she felt a great gulf inside her. Profoundly sad, the woman found herself in a church one afternoon lighting a candle. For the first time in her life she realized that her dreams of family might not happen. She wept some there in the church, her head bowed, the candle flickering, and then she stood, dusted herself off, and decided to get on with her life. I finally, seriously let that dream go, she told my friend. And then what happened? What always happens in these yarns. She met her Big Love. A marathon runner who happened to be handsome and kind. And a surgeon. Just. Like. That. My friend offered me this story during my own recent down moment, a tale of hope with a moralistic punch line. You just have to create space for love, my friend said, and it will come to you. Its a lesson Ive heard before. Several years ago I picked up Katherine Woodward Thomass relationship advice book, Calling In The One: 7 Weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life. I read the how-to guide with one eyebrow raised, not sure if I could swallow its New Age-y approach to love. The final section of the first chapter, Making Space for Love, asserted that in order to find a partner, we need both metaphorical and physical space. Mrs. Woodward Thomas encouraged love-seekers to clean out their closets and adjust their beds. She also suggested they create breathing room in their schedules and their hearts. We all must master the ability to release who we are for the possibility of who we might become, she wrote. Shes not wrong, and I admire this idea of making room. But what happens when we create an overabundance of space? There are some of us who make a career out of looking for l ove, who keep our closets not just roomy but empty. We expend so much effort on being open and accommodating ready for love at any possible moment that we forget to root ourselves in our own lives. We become weightless and untethered, floating through life, always looking for the next heartthrob. Perhaps the trick to finding love, then, is to strike a balance between this openness and a certain grounding closed-ness. That way we can make space in our beds without forgetting to stake our claim to half of it. s h e d t d North Naples 1015 Crosspointe Dr. Downtown Naples 261 9th St. S.

PAGE 56 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 innuendo and its all steamy. Acc ording to American Theatre Magazine, Venus in Fur will be the most-performed American play this season, with 22 regional theaters producing it. (Florida Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers hoped to stage it this season, but Ms. Coury nabbed the rights.) Its the most amazing thing, she says. Its as edgy as all get out, yet nothing happens no nudity, not even a kiss. But with adult language and adult situations, the two-person play is definitely one for mature audiences. The director and both actors Kelley Curran and Nick Duckart grapple for words and ultimately falter when asked for a brief description of the play. Venus in Fur is so complex that a concise, oneor two-sentence explanation is impossible, they feel. Its very hard, very tricky to give a one-liner about this play, Ms. Curran says. Its a very layered, complicated play (thats) hard to sum up. Sexuality, she adds, is as much driven by our brains as other parts of us. This play explores it on all levels. Mr. Duckart says part of what makes the play so sexy is its spontaneity. Venus in Fur is complicated, in part, because its two actors also play two other parts in a play audition. The premise of the play: Thomas has adapted Venus in Furs, by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, into a play called Venus in Fur. Both book and play are about a man searching for a woman who will dominate him and make him her slave. (We get our word masochism from Mr. Sacher-Masochs name.) Then he meets Vanda, who seems perfect for him. Thomas is directing the play himself and holding auditions, but hes having a difficult time finding the right actress. Then a woman actually named Vanda walks in for an audition. Thomas cant find her on the schedule, but she persuades him to let her try out, with the two of them acting out scenes from the play. Soon, the tables are turned, and its difficult to tell at any given time whos in power and who is truly being submissive. The entire situation is like a hall of mirrors: Ms. Coury is directing two actors, who play a director and an actor onstage, acting out a play within a play. The whole play is mirrors upon mirrors, she says.A tough role to fillLike his character, Thomas, playwright David Ives had a difficult time finding the right actress to play Vanda. In an interview with John Lahr, former senior theater critic at the New Yorker, he revealed that it took him six months before he finally discovered and cast Nina Arianda, who, like her character, had little previous experience. Looking at her resume, the casting director and artistic director were doubtful, but once she began reading, they knew theyd found their Vanda. Ms. Arianda originated the role offBroadway, then played Vanda on Broadway. She went on to win the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for the role. Ms. Coury had similar difficulties casting the role for her Gulfshore Playhouse production. After one local audition and three in New York City, she still hadnt found her Vanda. She could find an actress who could play either the modern role or the 19th century one, but not both. She finally found Ms. Curran when the actress sent in an audition tape. Id seen every age, shape and style actress, Ms. Coury says. As soon as she saw the tape, she adds, I loved it. I said, Thats her! Thats our girl! Ms. Curran saw the Broadway production of Venus in Fur and says she thought Ms. Arianda was fantastic, phenomenal. But now, like every actor in the role, she has to make the character her own. The things I loved about (Ms. Ariandas) performance would be unnatural to me as an actress, she says. Whats so interesting about this now is that its going to be the most-performed show this season, Ms. Curran adds. So they now have 22 actresses all over the country facing the same challenge.Come with an open midMr. Duckart, whom Gulfshore Playhouse audiences last saw as Marco in A View From the Bridge, says Venus in Fur is the first of its kind for local audiences. Will it be too much for them? I truly believe that if the audience comes in with an open mind and just watches the show, without any preconceived notions of what they think its going to be, theyre really going to fall in love with these characters, these two very rich, very complex characters, he says. The storytelling is just so brilliant, with a sexy undertone thats risqu and different than what theyre used to seeing. But because of David Ivess words, and the way he creates these characters, theyre going to eat it up. Rehearsals have sparked some interesting conversations, both actors say. During the early days of rehearsal, Ms. Coury told them that their two characters were entering into a contract where the person acting submissive is the one with the power, with the control, says Ms. Curran. This is a play where the tables are continually being turned. It makes for a really great creative rehearsal space, the actress adds. Its a fantastically structured play. Theres the play itself, and then the play within the play, and the way these two stories collide and explode is brilliantly composed.The pleasure and pain of actingVenus in Fur is also set in a familiar locale for the director and actors: an audition room. When Vanda persuades Thomas, the playwright, to read lines with her, he stops and says, This is hard. I cant believe I put actors through this. Vanda replies: Youre a playwright. Youre a director. Its your job to torture actors. Ms. Curran doesnt see acting as a masochistic activity. I wouldnt call it that, just because part of it is painful, she says. What keeps any artist engaged is not feeling satisfied, that constant curiosity, she says, quoting Martha Graham, who said, No artist is pleased. (There is) no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others. Ms. Curran agrees that acting involves both pleasure and pain. While its wonderful to feel curious about your craft, you also feel like youre never finished or that you never really figure it out, she says. Theres something in there thats frustrating and curiousmaking, and also completely wonderful, which has elements of masochism, but I wouldnt describe it as that. Her co-star, however, would. I do think acting is a masochistic activity, Mr. Duckart says. The creative process of getting a chance to perform is euphoric, not masochistic. The masochism comes from the sacrifice that takes precedence in your life. You have to make a lot of sacrifices to do this job. And it is a dream job. The insecurity, constantly having to renew yourself, the 10-, 20-auditions-aweek lifestyle, hearing No more than you hear Yes thats where the masochism comes from. But we love it. Were the happiest people in the world, taking pleasure in the pain. Why do you keep doing it? Because you love it. Ms. Curran and Mr. Duckart are enjoying the rehearsal process and look forward to the run. I do think itll be a fun night at the theater, she says. Invigorating, he adds. Its complex, thought-provoking material, says Ms. Coury. And its sexy.She hopes theater lovers take a risk and come out and see it.Whatever you expect it to be, it wont be, she says, but it will be more than you expected.

PAGE 60 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 ARTS COMMENTARYRingling International Arts Festival: Innovative, edgy, provocativeIf Dwight Currie were writing this article about the upcoming Ringling International Arts Festival in Sarasota, heres the headline he says hed slap on it, in big, bold letters: Go See This or Be Forever Unhappy That You Didnt. Arts lovers drive down from Jacksonville, over from Miami and up from Naples to attend the annual festival, says Mr. Currie, associate director of exhibitions and programs at The Ringling (formerly the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.) This years RIAF takes place Oct. 9-12. Its unique in its offerings, with performers typically only seen in New York City or London. The musicians, dancers, actors and singers all push the boundaries of their art. Previous festivals have included a performer who presented the entire story of mans trip to the moon using only his hands, two brothers who danced the tango together and a concert of music composed for toy pianos. From the get-go, the festivals always been a bit of an exploration, Mr. Currie says. With exploring youre moving into uncharted territories. That sense of exploration also pertains to the shape and form of the festival itself. Over the past four years, organizers have experimented with the number and types of performances offered, as well as how theyre scheduled. Individual performances generally run for an hour or slightly longer; many people attend multiple shows in one day. In its first year, when the festival had a grant of $1.5 million from the state of Florida, 11 different performers were scheduled numerous times over the course of the festival. This year, with RIAF incorporated into The Ringlings overall budget, five acts are scheduled multiple times. Although by count, there are fewer performers that is isnt a lesser experience or a lesser commitment, Mr. Currie stresses. The emphasis is on quality, not quantity, he adds, arguing that reducing the number of companies has not reduced the artistic impact. Even a Ringling International Arts Festival not quite as jam-packed and overflowing with performances as in its early years is still a very, very good thing. The festival has always been under the artistic direction of New Yorks Baryshnikov Arts Center, which chooses all the performers again this year. Next year, however, The Ringling will be on its own.Whats in store this year Rocio Molina from Spain combines flamenco, classic bolero and traditional popular dance in performances at 1 and 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10. (Shell also perform at a special opening night fundraiser at 7 p.m. Oct. 9. Tickets for that are $500.) She starts in a classic form of flamenco, Mr. Currie says, and infuses it with all other kinds of dance movement. It s pretty extraordinary. Shes exploring, and it all comes together into one large conversation. Its fun. Underground theater group Belarus Free Theatre performs Minsk, 2011: A Reply to Kathy Acker at 1 and 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, and at 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. In Russian with projected translations, its a performance for mature audiences only as it looks at how sexuality is squashed by government oppression. It is extremely powerful and intensely political and personal theater, says Mr. Currie, explaining that the founders of the company are now exiled in London and face arrest if they ever return to Russia. Everyone in the company has at some time been arrested, had jobs lost or property confiscated, because of the nature of their performance. They call it the last dictatorship (in Europe). A film about the troupe, Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus, was shown recently at the Toronto Film Festival and has been picked up by HBO. In a year or two, someone will come up to me and say, Have you heard about this company? You should bring them here. And well say, We did, before they were uber-famous, Mr. Currie says. Tere OConnor Dance performs works by the American choreographer at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at 1 and 9 p.m. Friday, Oct 11, and at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. His work is just a joyous celebration of human movement, says Mr. Currie. We watch each other, and its beautiful, the sort of way we intersect, whenever we bump into each other. Its a new way of communicating a language. Teres dance is very generous and giving and positive and affirming. Composer/pianist Stephen Prutsman and the Aeolus Quartet will provide the accompaniment for the Buster Keaton silent film, Sherlock, Jr. with music composed by Mr. Prutsman, at 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at 5 and 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, and at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. This is a unique way to see the 1924 comedy. In the old days, a pianist would either improvise 100 percent, Mr. Currie says, possibly seeing the film for the first time along with the audience, or had set pieces for runaway train scenes, love scenes and scenes with the villain. This is obviously a more considered and developed score, a composition thats carefully thought-out and beautifully realized in a very solid way, he says. Whats great about Stephen is that Buster Keaton continues to be the star of the show; its still about the story, the flickering light on the screen. The Leev Theater Group, from Tehran, performs Hamlet, Prince of Grief at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at 1 and 9 p.m. Friday, Oct 11., and at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. A one-man show performed in Farsi with English subtitles, it incorporates the use of toys and dolls to retell Shakespeares Hamlet, taking the text as a point of departure. Their work is really focused on the character, an insight or an illumination of Hamlet, Mr. Currie says. The Hamlet we meet onstage is a Hamlet before Shakespeares play starts, a very happy Hamlet, a student at a university who is going to join his friends on a picnic. Life is still good. Its all ahead of him. (Its about) that fragile moment everyone has sometime, when youre moving from being a child to an adult, and you realize its not all going to turn out the way you thought. Its extraordinarily moving, when you know what happens to Hamlet but he doesnt know whats going to happen to him this happy young man, with these toys in his hand, almost desperate to make it work. Despite the fact that the play work is in another language and performed by an actor from another culture, the experience the show depicts is universal. Im going to guess that everyone has had that variation of that last moment of childhood bliss, Mr. Currie says. Its a very brief, very fragile experience.Artists in the thick of things RIAF appeals to anyone of any ages who wants to experience current, cutting-edge work. The conventional wisdom is that were in a retirement community, a resort community, Mr. Currie says. Were in Florida, and we tend to have an older population. But as I get older, I object to the notion that with each passing year, I think less, that Im less curious, less adventuresome. The festival, he adds, is an incredible opportunity for people who are interested in the art thats being created in the here and now. It is new work, the art of our time. (It is) contemporary work (for those who) want an engagement with living artists who are in the thick of it, as confused and hopeful as we all may be at this point in time.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 C11 Is it worth $10? YesEven if you despise racecar driving, Rush is utterly captivating from start to finish. The story of arch rivals on the Formula One racing scene in 1976, director Ron Howards (A Beautiful Mind) latest is a fascinating character study of two polar opposites in a dangerous sport who have only one thing in common: winning. Their approaches couldnt be more different. Based on a true story, James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) is reckless and self-centered, a man who loves the high life off the track as much as he loves the adrenaline rush on it. Accordingly, his relationships with both his track managers and the women in his life, including his marriage to model Suzy Miller (Olivia Wilde), are fleeting because hes such a loose cannon. Conversely, archrival Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) is grounded and super serious; he comes from money, and uses it (as well as his vast knowledge of the sport) as his greatest asset in building the fastest car possible. Whereas James would party after winning a big race, Niki would go to bed at his regular time so he can get up early the next day and become better. Working from a script by Peter Morgan (The Queen), Mr. Howard succeeds at making the film about the men rather than their sport. What this means is Formula One racing is not specifically showcased, and anything we learn about it comes through the experiences of James and Niki. It also means the direct contrast between the journeys of James and Niki is chronicled throughout, which allows the performances and character arcs to take center stage, and rightfully so. After all, not as many people would be drawn to a racing movie as would be drawn to a strong drama about two men who strive for the same goal in drastically different ways. The performances are fantastic. Mr. Hemsworth, who is Australian, is well suited to portray a playboy who lives on the edge. James lives like he drives: Bold, brash, arrogant and a legitimate danger to others. Given that most are only familiar with Mr. Hemsworth as Thor in the Marvel movies, the role is a nice change of pace that allows him to show some range and still be believable. It is not intended to be a backhanded compliment to write that at no point does your mind wander to thoughts of superheroes. The best performance, however, belongs to Mr. Bruhl, and it should earn him a supporting actor Oscar nomination. Niki is just as full of himself and arrogant as James, but in an altogether different way: He wins with cunning strategy and execution, an intellectual approach that values his brains over James brawn. Mr. Bruhl, with his short delivery, quick wit and determination, is at once abrasive and endearing, a complex character we cant get enough of. In addition to the stellar performances, its nice that a pseudo-friendship does not manifest during the rivalry. The two men hate each other, and it stays that way. Niki views James with contempt; James calls Niki a rat. Its intriguing to watch their hatred fuel them; for each it becomes just as much about not letting the other guy win as it is about winning for himself. Drama that takes this perspective and does it so well is not often seen in movies today, which makes Rush a must-see for film lovers everywhere.

Show time is 12:55 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5. Live screenings of nine more operas continue through May 10 and include Met Music Director James Levines return to the podium in December. Metropolitan Opera stars serve as hosts for the HD series, conducting live interviews with cast, crew and production teams, and introducing the popular behind-the-scenes feature. Encore presentations also are on the schedule. In Southwest Florida, The Met: Live in HD screenings are at the Hollywood Stadium 20 in Naples, Coconut Point 16 in Estero, Bell Tower 20 in Fort Myers and Town Center Stadium 16 in Port Charlotte. Soprano Deborah Voight hosts the seasons opening broadcast. The new production of Eugene Onegin, by acclaimed English director Deborah Warner, is directed for the Met by Ms. Warners longtime collaborator Fiona Shaw (medical reasons rendered Ms. Warner unable to travel to the U.S. to stage the show). Reviewing Ms. Warners production, the London Telegraph praised its mixture of haunting visual and emotional impact: cutting straight to the heart of the work, (Warner) shows how Onegin is simultaneously about two colliding Russian societies rustic provincialism and cosmopolitan decadence and three wasted lives. Valery Gergiev conducts for the Met. Anna Netrebko sings as Tatiana, the nave heroine from Pushkins classic novel. Mariusz Kwiecien portrays the self-confident title character, in a much-admired interpretation he has sung in many of the worlds leading opera houses, and Piotr KEN HOWARD / THE METROPOLITAN OPERAMariusz Kwiecien (center) as the title character of Tchaikovskys Eugene Onegin.

You may find some special pieces originally given away as product premiums during the early 20th century. There was no television, and radio was just getting developed, so ads often were objects that would be kept by the family. Colorful trade cards, sets of pressed glass or Depression glass, dishes of all kinds, souvenir spoons, printed handkerchiefs and even furniture were available. A small cup we inherited puzzled us for many years. The 33/8-inch-high porcelain cup is decorated with bright pink carnations and gold trim. But inside the rim of the cup, where you see it when finished drinking, are the words Armours Bouillon Cubes. The underside of the cup says C.T. Altwasser. The maker was easy to identify. We list a few pieces of its china in each edition of Kovels Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide. C. Tielsch & Co. of Altwasser, Germany, was in business in Silesia, Germany, from 1845 to 1945. Armour & Co. was founded in Chicago in 1867 as a meat-packing plant. It also made buttons, glue, fertilizer, margarine and other items from by-products. The Armour brand name still is used in the United States for meat and other products. Bouillon cubes were originally used to turn hot water into a tasty drink that aided digestion. Bouillon was also used in cooking, just as it is today. The Armour cup must have been a popular premium, because many are still available at flea markets and shops. They sell for $20 to $25 each. Q: I found a 25-piece set of Golden Wheat dishes in my mothers attic. The mark on each dish include the words Golden Wheat, Made in USA, 22K Gold, Oven Proof, with a sheaf of wheat on each side. The set includes six dinner plates, six salad plates and a few serving pieces, but only a couple cups, saucers and soup bowls. What is the set worth? A: Golden Wheat dishes were premiums first inserted in boxes of Duz detergent during the 1950s. Each month, a different packaged dish was inserted in a box of detergent. The pattern is a realistic image of five standing sheaves of wheat, and the rim of each dish was edged in gold. There is disagreeKOVEL: ANTIQUESLook online or in an antiques shop for a porcelain cup like this advertising premium for Armour bouillon. It was made in about 1915 and sells for $20-$25. d t f D s a s 239.431.6341NaplesDesignerDivas.comThe Shoppes at Vanderbilt Suite 1362355 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples naples designer divasNo Appt.

Brought to you in part by like us on facebook NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 C17 ment about the company that made the dishes, because the very same mark was used by Scio Pottery of Scio, Ohio; Homer Laughlin China Co. of Newell, W.Va.; and French Saxon China Co. of Sebring, Ohio. It is possible all three pottery companies made dishes for Duz. Because so many dishes were made and so many people saved them, they are not rare and prices are low. Another problem is that defining a set is impossible because many of the dishes made it into homes one at a time. We have seen a 22-piece set offered for $35. Q: We were left a large figural owl by my wifes grandparents. Its about 3 feet tall and weighs 40-50 pounds. It appears to be made of fired clay. The base looks like tile used for roofing or old piping. Its marked Evens & Howard, St. Louis, Mo. We dont intend to sell it, but were interested in the background. A: Evens & Howard Fire Brick Co. was incorporated in 1867, but a brickworks had been operating at the companys location since 1837. Fire bricks were used to line fireplaces, furnaces, fireboxes, ovens, etc. The bricks were made from clay dug from mines in St. Louis and Glencoe, Mo. The clay was weathered for at least six months before it was made into bricks. The company began making sewer pipe in 1858. It also made fire-clay chimney tops, hotair flues and floor tiles. Evidently the company also made figures like yours. Evens & Howard remained in business until at least the second decade of the 20th century. Q: I have a set of old metal ice tongs marked Gifford Wood Co. I bought them at an estate sale more than 50 years ago. Can you estimate age and value? A: Any tool marked Gifford Wood Co. was not made earlier than 1905, the year Gifford Brothers of Hudson, N.Y., merged with William T. Wood & Co. of Arlington, Mass. The company specialized in tools to carry and handle ice. Gifford Wood Co. ice tongs often are offered for sale online. Prices range from $20 to $50, depending on size, quality and condition. Q: While cleaning out my brothers home, I found seven gold-rimmed clear glass luncheon plates decorated on the bottom with wall-to-wall cigar bands. The bands apparently were glued to the bottom of the plates, then covered with felt. One plate has a center portrait of Rudolph Valentino, another a portrait of a woman, and still another a picture of a cherub. Are these plates collectible? A: Your plates were popular craft projects in the early 1900s. Today, some people refer to these reverse collages on glass as a form of folk art. Single plates like yours sell online for $25 to $40. Tip: Do not put wax on a wooden toy to preserve it. The wax may yellow and disturb any markings or paper decoration. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer as many questions as possible through the column.

PAGE 70 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 WRITING CHALLENGEA sushi proposal and a mystery What a great idea!BY CATHY VOLSTORFNaplesShe, hesitantly, Im not sure Ill like sushi. Raw fish...? He, confidently, I think you will. Tell you what... how about we make a bet? If you dont like it, Ill marry you. And if you do, youll marry me. He holds out his little finger. She, eyes dancing, OK, youre on. Smiling, she hooks her finger with his. ScenariosBY NANCY REGES MURVINEMarco IslandShe found the smart phone in the grass by Asia Too, a little outdoor bistro she passed every day on her way from the bus stop to work. The phones charge was running low, and her curiosity high. She swiped its face with her finger, unlocking the phone, and with a few more thumb taps she had the outline of the owners story. The most recent call was several days ago. No new text messages waited for an answer. And one photo, a closeup of a beautiful display of nigiri sushi, taken right here by one of the outdoor bistro tables. She imagined it was a special occasion because the plate was grand with its rows of sliced fish topped with bright orange salmon roe and delicate red flying fish eggs. The edible orchids were a nice touch she thought. The table was set for two, but no one sat opposite the photographers place. In fact, the only people captured in the shot were a man and woman just getting up from the stools at the outdoor bar. Their love-linked pinkies told a separate story, and their headless bodies proved that they were inadvertent players in the plot line of this photo. So what happened? Sometimes the story is just outside the picture frame she reasoned as she stuffed the phone into her coat pocket and walked on toward the drab brick building and her miniscule cubicle on the third floor. Recently, incidences of brown bears roaming neighborhoods had spiked. She had heard of at least a dozen in the past month. Several chefs had seen the late night visitors in the trash bins behind their restaurants just a few blocks from the residential areas. A brazen early evening foray would have scattered the diners in seconds. A full tray of sushi and an abandoned cell phone, the perfect scenario for tipping over a table and sending a phone skidding into the bushes. That would have made the news though. Same with a runaway car leaping a curb and knocking the photographer to the ground, his phone sailing into high grass. That screamed live, on the scene TV news coverage for sure. Lightning strike? Ditto. Something less traumatic, more subtle, for sure. He had planned a romantic dinner. A ring placed in the bottom of an empty sake bottle would be the ultimate surprise, and when she looked up from her sake glass, he would be asking her to marry him. She would say no and he would throw the phone away in anguish. Too schmaltzy. The couple in the background, maybe inadvertent players but not innocent ones. Clandestine lovers, caught on camera, or so they thought. Hey, man, you cant go around takin pictures like that. A struggle for the evidence, a punch landed, a phone hurled into the night. She liked this one. She hung her coat on its hook in her cubbyhole office, retrieved the phone from its pocket, and bent down to power up her computer. She slowly pulled out her chair, slumped herself into position in front of the computer screen, and wrestled with the tangle of her headset. She was ready to take her first complaint call of the day. But before officially signing on, she made one call herself to the In Case of Emergency number on the phone with a story. THE BAND PERRYWITHTHANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS TICKET SALE LOCATIONS SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2013JOE NICHOLS In the third round of our Writing Challenge, were still looking for creative writing inspired by the photograph on this page.

Oceanview Publishing. 280 pages. $26.95.Can another horse as magnificent as Secretariat come along? In the imagination of Susan Klaus, thats exactly what happens. The complications that follow are artfully developed to create the same kind of suspense one feels when the thundering hoofbeats of thoroughbreds pound toward the finish line. Christian Roberts (hereafter, Chris), a handsome blond fellow in his mid20s, makes a modest living from renting small sailboats and providing various services to boaters on Sarasota Bay. Long estranged from his father, a down-onhis luck horse trainer in Ocala, Chris enjoys a blistering relationship with his sex-crazed and increasingly possessive girlfriend, Kate. Learning that his father, Hank, is nearing death, Chris makes his way to the dilapidated Ocala farm and begins a slow reconciliation with the bossy, judgmental man who always chose the thrill of raising and racing horses over time with his son. Hank forces a sure-thing racehorse upon Chris, who reluctantly agrees to play into his fathers dreams of having the big winner. The horse turns out to be a great prospect, but a crooked trainer, Ed Price, hides its talent through falsifying time trials and then puts the horse in a claiming stakes race, assuring Chris that no one would make the offer. When an Arab sheik (whos in league with Ed) claims the winning horse, Chris is devastated. Hes also broke. Another chance comes when Hank hands over to Chris a marvelous horse whose registration papers obscure the fact that he is a clone of the great Secretariat. Needing to pay off a huge debt on the horse, Chris succumbs to taking a loan from a New York mob kingpin named (of course) Vince. Soon enough, Chris is paying off his debt by participating in drug transfers for Vince in Gulf Coast waters. At the Miami racetrack, Chris meets and falls for a female trainer, the tough and gorgeous Allie. Though Chris has already broken up with the totally selfcentered Kate, his former flame cant deal with this turn of affairs, and her wild threats turn into dangerous action. Though Chris feels obligated to fulfill his promises to his father about racing the sure-thing clone, he is certainly troubled by the ethical and legal problems he has brought upon himself. Wont the truth eventually come out and tarnish anything that Secretariat Reborn might accomplish? Will Chris ever shake loose from the grip Vince has on him? Will Kate continue to stalk and perhaps bring injury or worse to him and Allie? As the author deftly maneuvers our concerns from one problem to another, the pressure on Chris builds as does the novels suspense. Special attractions in this novel include Ms. Klauss sure-handed insider descriptions of the thoroughbred racing world, including its susceptibility to deceit and corruption. Just as interesting is the carefully nuanced development of the romance between Chris and Allie, compromised as it is by Chriss need to hide the ugly truths about the clone and about his deal with Vince. Descriptions of the Ocala-SarasotaMiami triangle are sufficiently detailed to orient readers visually and culturally without bogging down the narrative pace. In the high-stakes world of fiction writing, Secretariat Reborn is a darn good bet. More about the authorA Sarasota native, Ms. Klaus has been a pet groomer for 30 years, an exhibiter in dog obedience trials and a breeder of show cats. She has bred and raced thoroughbred horses, and she currently raises rodeo bulls. She founded and is still president of the Sarasota Authors Connection Club, presently with 230 members, and she is the web radio host and co-producer of The Authors Connection, a show with 15 million listeners in 148 countries. In 2009, Ms. Klaus rewrote her novel The Golden Harpy and renamed it Flight of the Golden Harpy. It won the Florida Writers Royal Palm Literary Award for Best Science Fiction Manuscript of 2010. Flight of the Golden Harpy has been optioned by Tor and will come out in 2014. Secretariat Reborn is her first suspense/thriller. She is working on Shark Fin Soup, the sequel to the Secretariat novel, and another suspense/thriller, A Murder in Sarasota, based on a true story. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

I have a question about the actor who plays Dr. Reed: Did he gain weight in real life to play his newly plump alter ego? Jessica D., via e-mailA: The slim and fit Ed Weeks did not have to pack on the pounds to play stress-eating Reed. The British actor wears padding to simulate his characters weight gain. Since its a comedy, I suppose its OK that he didnt get all Robert De Niro in Raging Bull on us for the role.Q: I was reading somewhere that a cable network is planning to turn the movie American Psycho into a TV series. Is this true? If so, how is this even possible? Tandy W., Bowling Green, OhioA: You heard correctly. FX is planning a series based on the violent, bloody, cultclassic comedy/drama that brilliantly spoke of the vanity and excess of the s corporate cutthroat (literally and figuratively) culture. Word has it that the series will pick up in the present time, with crazy corporate killer Patrick Bateman now in his 50s, and hes grooming an apprentice to be just like him. Q: Whatever happened to the planned CHiPs movie? I'd heard the series was going to be remade into a feature film. Danny A., via e-mailA: Word about the production broke back in 2005, and even as recent as 2010, a CHiPs movie was in development with Warner Brothers, with Wilmer Valerrama attached to star as Ponch. But it stalled in the development phase, and no one has seen hide nor hair of it since. (I think any remake would need to be handled like Ben Stiller did with his Starsky and Hutch remake.) This CHiPs stall-out seems to be catching: Seasons one and two of the original cop show have been released on DVD, but theres no word yet on when season three will come out. Q: I love NCIS, and was looking forward to the spinoff starring Kim Raver. Its not anywhere on CBSs schedule. Has it been scrapped? Pauline F., Harrisburg, Pa.A: Plans for NCIS: Red, which also would have starred John Corbett, have indeed been scrapped. But, dont worry: If you need more NCIS, youll be happy to hear about plans for a spinoff set in New Orleans. This spring, CBS will air an episode of NCIS that will serve as the jumpingoff point for the spinoff, and if all goes well, NCIS: New Orleans could very well appear on CBSs 2014 fall schedule. If you need more Kim Raver, she's rumored to be reprising her role of Audrey Raines in this springs 4: Live Another Day on Fox (along with Kiefer Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub).

Knowledgeable wine buyers can find a large selection frustrating because they can only choose a few bottles to buy, while wine novices can find the experience overwhelming as they contemplate aisles and aisles of wine before them. Shopping for wine requires a measure of trust in the store, the salesperson, the blurb about the wine pinned to the shelf or or the winerys reputation. Here are ways to eliminate some of the guesswork and make your purchasing easier. If you are a novice, start out by shopping at a boutique wine shop where the owners are often on hand, tend to know their wines well and are interested in educating customers with whom they hope to build long-term relationships. They often offer free tastes as well. Is the place nicely lighted and clean, or dark and dingy? The atmosphere of the store can be a good indicator of how carefully the wines are selected and stored. No matter what sort of store you shop in, a salesperson can help with your selection, but you need to be careful. How can you be sure this person knows something about wine or is simply pitching what the management wants to sell that week? On a recent shopping trip to a large wine store, I was taken aback when I heard a salesperson tell a customer standing behind me, No maam, they dont make white Burgundy. Its all red. In this case, the proper response would be to flee. A good salesperson will want to know if youre shopping for a wine to go with tonights steak dinner, something to serve a crowd at a party or a special gift that can age for a few years. He also might ask what kind of wine you typically drink to determine your flavor preferences. Dont be shy about telling the salesperson your budget. Beware any wine the salesperson is pushing but cant tell you anything about or hasnt tried. If you ask for a $15 bottle and she shows you one for $25, be on guard. If, however, she suggests something she drinks herself and it costs $18, you might give it a try. Where the wine comes from can affect the price as well. Many wine regions are known for producing very nice wines at reasonable prices. Spain, Australia, Argentina, South Africa and Chile are just a few countries that offer good value wines. Another option is to try wine from areas just outside of better-known wine growing regions. If, for example, you enjoy wines from the pricey district of Pomerol in Bordeaux, stroll down the road to try Lalandede-Pomerol. Its the same grape (merlot), but youll pay a much lower price. For those times when you shop without the services of a helpful salesperson, you still have resources available to help pick the right wine. Many shops offer samples of wines, especially on the weekends. Listen to what other customers say about the wines you are trying. Get on mailing lists of retailers and wineries for advance notice of upcoming tastings. Taking a knowledgeable friend shopping can be helpful because you feel you can trust his or her palate. But when that person points at a bottle and says, I really liked that one, be aware that he might not have honed in on what you are looking for. Do not feel pressured to take his suggestion. Dont be ashamed to take notes with you. There is plenty of wine buying information available online and in print. Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Robert Parkers The Wine Advocate, Stephen Tanzers International Wine Cellar and Food & Wine Magazine are a few of the wine publications with reliable information. This column always includes three or more wines (with descriptions) Ive tasted and enjoyed. Theres an archive of several years worth at www. Print out what seems interesting and take it to the store. Find a source that you trust, making sure that the recommendations are not advertisements disguised as independent reviews. Wine Picks of the Week: Robert Mondavi 2010 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon ($55): A classic Napa cabernet from the famous To-Kalon vineyard in the Oakville district, the wine shows both power and finesse. With layers of blackberry and black cherry on the nose and the palate, it is both complex and approachable, with a mouth-filling texture and refreshing acidity. Robert Mondavi 2011 Oakville Fum Blanc ($32): Sauvignon blanc and smillon grapes show enticing citrus and melon aromas that merge with orange with crisp, balanced flavors. Ends with a silky palate and lingering finish. Zind-Humbrecht Gewrztraminer Alsace Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St.-Urbain 2008 ($65): Rich aromas and flavors of lychee, cream and rose petal with a tinge of sweetness and an underlying acidity. A briny minerality runs through the wine, and the finish goes on and on. COURTESY PHOTOSMondavi Oakville Fume Blanc label. Join us for a 5-course meal in the kitchen at the Waldorf Astoria Naples.

CUISINEEscargot 41 transcends unlikely location with resplendent flavors and charmPay absolutely no attention to the Goodwill donation drop-off center or Kmart on the right, the out-of-business hair salon or Dollar Tree to the left. Tucked in a corner of the Park Shore Shopping Center amidst a collection of retail establishments that have seen better days is a magnificent restaurant that seems plucked whole from France and set in the most unlikely of locations. That Escargot 41 has thrived in this space for eight years speaks to the impeccable food, service and ambience provided by chef Patrick Fevrier and his wife, Jackie. Set far back from busy U.S. 41 and overshadowed by the big box that is Kmart, it isnt likely that even the most eagle-eyed food devotee would spot it from the highway. So it must be that those who have had memorable meals there have told their friends, who then tell their friends and so on. It has been a few years since Id had occasion to dine there not by choice, mind you, but simply because this job requires that I constantly move on to yet another new restaurant every week but when a reader told me she had had a lessthan-stellar experience there, I decided it was time for a return visit. Restaurants do, after all, decline. Chefs can lose their joie de vivre, serving staffs their savoir faire. However, it didnt take long to determine that this was not at all the case at Escargot 41. Although Mrs. Fevrier was absent (in France bringing her mother back to the states, our server told us), a server greeted us warmly and ushered us to a cozy, pillowstrewn banquette in a corner from which we had a grand view of the rest of the dozen or so lace-dressed tables, including one in the middle dominated by a fresh flower arrangement that soared a good five feet above the table. An attendant swiftly appeared with water and crusty French bread with butter while we proceeded to peruse the extensive wine list, which included a wide variety beginning in the mid-$20s and climbing to a heady Grand Cru Burgundy priced at upwards of $1,000. We settled upon a Paul Bouchard Puligny-Montrachet chardonnay 2010, a well-balanced white. It paired well with the amuse-bouche, a demi cup of smooth, creamy onion and port soup of which I would have happily consumed a big bowl. At a restaurant named for the snail, you might not be surprised that the kitchen offers seven escargot appetizers. What might be surprising is that one is named for a local resident. The escargots Dr. Ivan are named in honor of pathologist/passionate foodie and food writer Ivan Seligman. They are mixed with sweetbreads, black trumpet mushrooms and a Marsala brown sauce. While Ive enjoyed the above-described robust rendition before, on this occasion, I tried the escargots with potato gnocchi and mushroom duxelles sauce ($11.95), a mild, creamy concoction in which the little potato pillows and tender snails seemed soul mates in the sauce of chopped mushrooms, herbs and onions. The house-cured salmon ($13.95), lightly rubbed with coffee, was excellent as well, tender and buttery served with onions, capers sour cream and toast points. Flaky yellowtail snapper medallions ($28.95), lightly dr essed in a lemon-butter caper sauce, came with rice and perfectly cooked green beans tucked into a hollowed-out round of zucchini. A nightly special called Bacchus ($29.95) consisted of a tender filet mignon topped with escargot, portobello mushrooms, a smattering of green peppercorns and a richly flavored merlot sauce that brought the whole dish together. On the side was a mound of mashed sweet potatoes devoid of sugar and other unnecessary trappings, topped with a touch of corn. A packet of green beans and a tiny puff pastry shared the plate just as it did with the yellowtail.I overheard a server explaining to a nearby table that the chef and his lone assistant cook each item to order, which could explain why everything tasted so fresh and was cooked so well. No soggy vegetables, dried-out proteins or tired sauces here. Although it required about 10 minutes to prepare, the moulleux au chocolat ($9.25) was worth the wait. You might consider it the chefs version of lava cake, but it was far more elegant. An inspired pairing of bittersweet dark chocolate cake filled with melted homemade chocolate truffle atop a raspberry sauce, it was so good I was tempted to lick the plate, but settled for spooning up as much of it as I could manage. As suggested on the menu, we ordered a glass of Rasteau, a sweet wine with chocolate notes that was a perfect match for this fine dessert.The service staff appeared to pay as much attention to detail as those in the kitchen at Escargot 41. They kept glasses filled, silverware appeared when it was needed, and dishes disappeared in a timely fashion. We were checked upon and coddled throughout the meal, despite the fact that we were in a corner where we might have been forgotten by a less vigilant team. I watched the servers treat the parties at all the other tables in exactly the same manner.After yet another exquisite experience at this little gem, Im left perplexed by the comments of the reader who professed to be unhappy there and can only conclude that she had confused it with some lesser establishment. Escargot 41 remains tres magnifique!
