En masse, the tough little bunch of field hands with eyes, brains and heart won a Roosevelt Institute Four Freedoms award last week in New York City the less-famous equivalent of a Nobel Prize for do-gooders. Theirs is the 2013 Freedom from Want award, but it could have been any one of the others presented, as well. If youve ever seen Norman Rockwells 1943 paintings of the four freedoms defined by FDR just before we entered World War II, youll know them instantly: Freedom from Want (Rockwells Thanksgiving scene); Freedom from Fear; Freedom to Worship; and Freedom to Speak. Suddenly, Coalition members Greg Asbed, his partner and wife, Laura Germino, along with Gerardo Reyes Chavez and Nely Rodriguez, were standing where all of them should be with the likes of such previous winners as Studs Terkel, the Dalai Lama, Carlos Fuentes, Harry Truman, Jimmy Carter, Nelson Mandela and others. In a two-decade effort, the Coalition has changed the way farm work is conducted and understood in the United States, and especially in Florida. None of those previous Roosevelt award winners were there in the flesh to witness the formal acknowledgement of this extraordinary achievement some of them no longer operate in the flesh. But four others, people whose names are now famous in the Land of Do-Gooders, were present: Wendell Berry, Sister Simone Campbell, Ameena Mathews, and Paul Krugman, who also holds the Nobel Prize in Economics (2008). Theyd all come to receive a 2013 Roosevelt award. Not that this extraordinary moment of glory for the home team made the front page of even a single Florida newspaper. It didnt, as far as I could tell, even though Immokalee is only 30 miles as the cormorant flies from Naples; 32 miles from Fort Myers; 86 miles from Miami and 88 miles from Palm Beach all of which sport alert and agile print and electronic media outfits, some of them swollen to considerable size and wealth. But hey, Jesus wasnt front-page news to the Romans, either. He was just another do-gooder. I watched the ceremony unfold via podcast at St. Michaels Episcopal Church on Madison Avenue with a feeling of pleasant confusion, as if my senses had suddenly been cross-wired. You dont put your hand in an oven expecting to feel cool water. You dont salt your meat expecting to taste sugar. And you certainly dont expect to witness field hands walking down the aisle of an upper east-side church in elegant suits and ties while a string quartet performs Bach in the background. By all rights, these folks should have appeared sweat-streaked and sobered from two decades of not just back-breaking hard work for low pay (hell, theyve been doing that forever), but by their public resistance to what often went with that work: almost criminally low wages as a matter of course. Breathtakingly little sympathy for their lives on the part of many employers. Greed at their expense, excused away as the implacable narrative of the market. Beatings, sexual abuse and kidnapping of individuals in the fields many times over the years. And a callous lack of compassion and understanding for their needs and hopes for their children and grandchildren. The callousness has come not just from employers or corporate leaders, but from many of the rest of us, too, simply because weve been too comfortable to pay attention, or too wrongheaded to recognize the rights of field hands. The Coalitions fight is far from over, therefore. Only some, not all, of the corporations who buy food from Florida farmers have agreed that workers should be paid a penny more per pound for tomatoes they pick, for example which is the bottom line. Thats what Coalition members define as a fair wage. For 33 years, from 1978 until 2011, field hands got 40 cents to pick a 32-pound bucket of tomatoes. Thats 30 years with no raise. So, by 2010 one man or woman had to pick about 2.25 tons of tomatoes in a day to make the equivalent of minimum wage, with no benefits of any kind. In 1990, says Mr. Chavez, cents of every dollar you spent at the store would go to a farmer. In 2000, it was 24 cents of a dollar. That money was going to the top. It went to the owners of big retail franchises such as Walmart, who had changed the way business is done, and not to farmers or field hands. So now, there is only one conscionable thing for any of us to do: Join the Roosevelt Institute, and join the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, and join any neighborhood store or business that insists these men and women get a fair wage for a days work. Its the conscionable thing to do, sure. And its also the American thing to do for this most proud and American of organizations. d i e R w t rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com NATIONAL ARCHIVESNorman Rockwells Freedom from Want.

Terry began the meeting with his customary get-down-to-business style: Well, you know what were here for Lavern Gaynor, the first honored Humanitarian, sat quietly, listening with great interest to the suggestions made by other past Humanitarians Jack Humphrey and Corbin Wyant. While she observed, Myra Daniels appeared somewhat attentive, but deep in thought. Sensing that Myra was getting ready to speak, the room grew quieter. Breaking a short silence, Lavern asked, Myra, what do you think? As if by script, Myra replied, I like Earl Hodges. In a purposeful and methodical manner, she described the man whose spirit of benevolence and compassionate contributions had stayed under our communitys radar, concluding her remarks with the words that I will never forget: He is a quiet giant. In good speed, the selection process concluded in less than five minutes. Earl was unanimously chosen by his peers, lunch was served and higher education in Southwest Florida took a giant step forward. Earl and Thelmas first gift to Hodges University (then International College) came years after his Humanitarian of the Year award. Like many who are fortunate to have been introduced to the International College family, Earl and Thelma took great interest in the students, most of whom where veterans of the armed services, single parents, working couples and law enforcement officers attending fulltime while balancing family, work and life. Impressed by the faculty and staffs concern for student welfare, Earl and Thelma gave their first gift to help establish the schools foundation. Earl became one of 10 Founders. Other gifts followed, including the Earl and Thelma Hodges Veterans of the Armed Forces Scholarship Fund and, most notably, the naming gift that transformed a college into a university. It was a gift that turned a small college into a thriving university recognized in the Southern Region for excellence in its efficiency. It was a gift that moved the university toward the center of economic diversity and prosperity of the Southwest Florida community. It was a gift that firmly established Earl and Thelma as present and future role models for all Hodges University students, past, present and future. I remember Earl once said there are some lessons that take a lifetime to learn. These are powerful words plain spoken by a man who experienced life as fragile and uncertain. In his humble way, he would sometimes wish he were smarter in his early years to live each day as if it were his last and to cherish the moment and lessons learned from each experience, each encounter and each meeting. In all the years I have known Earl, he did just that. For me and other fundraising professionals, Earl provided a stellar role model of the dedication required to serve our community, our purpose to move society forward and the opportunity to work within the philanthropic community with which we are blessed. For each of us, there are lessons to be learned from this quiet giant of a man, who was as generous with his time as with his treasure. As a funeral home director, Earl was reminded daily of the importance of time and would often conclude his sentiments with this quiet reminder: It could be your last day to do or say something that needs doing or saying.

His frequent visits always made us smile. His presence was inspiring and his insights were enlightening. He will be missed by all of us, his Hodges Funeral Home family. We ask the community to keep Thelma and Earls family in thought and prayer.

While new in her job as managing director of the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples, Karysia Demarest is no newcomer to Cmon. She began working for the museum back in 2003, when one of the six founding moms asked her to help with the newly opened Cmon checking account. She volunteered for five years before becoming director of finance five years ago. In addition to being a CPA, she is a master instructor and international referee of tae kwon do. She and her husband, Jim, have owned and operated a tae kwon do academy in Naples for 10 years. The joy of knowing you have been an important part of molding a young person to be physically capable, mentally strong and of good character is extremely satisfying, Karysia says about her years of teaching the ancient martial art form. She was born in Fort Lauderdale and grew up in Coral Springs and the Florida Keys. At Coral Springs High School, she was a member of the marching band. As a teen, she also worked on her grandparents bee farm when she wasnt fishing and boating all over the Keys. After high school, she served in the U.S. Air Force, New Mexico Air National Guard and the Massachusetts Air National Guard for almost 10 years. She was trained as an airframe repair specialist for the F-15 and A-7 aircraft. (Jim, a former F-15 pilot, is a consultant and lieutenant colonel in the Florida Air National Guard as a JAG; they have two children, 15-year-old Gabby and 12-year-old Chad.) Using GI Bill education benefits, Karysia put herself through college, earning an associates degree from New Mexico State University and a bachelors in accounting from the University of Massachusetts. Upon graduation, she worked in the physics department at Cornell University. She returned to Florida in 1995 and went to work first at the CPA firm of Schultz Chaipel & Co. in Fort Myers and later with Girardin Baldwin & Associates in Naples. After Chad was born, she started working part-time a CPA with Swope Lamberson (now Urish Popeck) and has maintained an affiliation with Urish Popeck since then. Karysia was part of the Gene Doyle Memorial Foundation in her capacity as a CPA, and she supported the foundations annual fishing tournament for seven ears as a judge and all-around volunteer. She continues to support the foundations scholarship for Collier County youth by fishing in the tournament with her family (Chad is the tournaments current youth grand champion, a title he has now earned four times). When asked what she is most proud of in her life of varied accomplishments, she says: Initially, I would say I was most proud of passing all four parts of the CPA exam in one sitting, but now I am most proud of playing a part in making Cmon a reality. w a e a U a bobHARDEN e-mail: bob@bobharden.com www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 DistinctlyNorris.com Distinctlnorris FINAL HOURS FINANCING FOR 12 MONTHS ON ANY ORDER OVER $ 1200%0 Evenings & Sundays by appointmentFort Mye14125 S.

They are so busy hanging on to something (phone, computer, video game, etc.) instead of hanging out with each other. Something your mom was always right about: People are generally good. Some of them have just had experiences that have soured them along the way. What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be independent. I dont recall wanting a speci c career eld as much as I wanted to do whatever I did all on my own. Guilty pleasure: De nitely ice cream. Most recent vacation: I love to travel and recently came back from Costa Rica. One thing on your bucket list: Visit Israel. I nd the history there to be fascinating. Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I could draw. I have trouble drawing the hangman stick gure. Advice for your kids: Be happy. I will steal the quote, Do what you love, love what you do. Best thing about kids: Their honesty and innocence. They have not had any limits put on what to think. Just listening to them is inspiring. What makes you laugh: I nd people very entertaining. One of my favorite places to watch people is at Disney World. Last book read: I love to read. I would rather say my favorite authors are Harlen Coben, Nelson DeMille and Vince Flynn. Something youll never understand: Why the parking spaces in Naples are so small. Pet peeve: Wet clothes left on the oor. Something people would be surprised to nd out about you: Prior to college, I was a heavy equipment operator bulldozers, tower cranes and front-end loaders. High school job: Cashier at Publix. What the Paradise Coast really needs: More events to bring all ve counties together. Favorite thing about Paradise Coast: The way this coast has developed. We have not put development on every available acre. What you miss about the Paradise Coast when away: Proximity, since everything I want to do is within a 30-minute drive. Karysia Demarest

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 year running. Thankfully theres Instant Ramen that me and my (SGA) officers will share with one another, said the 26-year-old. Thats a godsend. Limited gas money, a basic phone plan and a beat-up old Honda have also helped control costs in his progress toward earning his bachelors in supervision and management this summer. Saving money is the name of the game, Mr. Guerrero says. Many students, parents, financial aid advisors and apparently Gov. Rick Scott, agree. To make education more affordable, Gov. Scott pushed public universities this year to put the brakes on sizeable tuition hikes. In a statement in late 2012 directed specifically at more than two dozen state or community colleges such as Edison State, Gov. Scott challenged those schools to cap tuition for at least some bachelors degrees at $10,000. Thats roughly $4,000 less than the normal tuition at a state school or community college. At Edison State College, for instance, 120 credit hours comes to $14,605 at current prices. The school offers associate, bachelor and other programs at campuses in Fort Myers, Naples, Punta Gorda and Hendry County. At the 12 larger public universities in the state system, such as Florida Gulf Coast University or the University of Florida, tuition for 120 credit hours comes to upwards of $24,000 at 2013-14 levels. Private schools such as Hodges University or Barry University that generally charge far higher tuitions also boast more personal attention and scholarship opportunities. And of course tuition is only one part of college costs, but a major one. The bottom line for state officials like Gov. Scott is ultimately how much income those diplomas generate for you, your community and Florida, in relation to how much they cost to complete. (A degree) is not just for a piece of paper but really so youre able to contribute to society, said Jorge E. Lpez, director of student financial services at Florida Gulf Coast University. Ideally, degrees need to create jobs without loading students with so much debt that it impedes their ability to spend money on other things like a home or luxuries. But half the students at Florida schools offering four-year degrees graduated with a large tab in 2011, and on average it came to $23,054, according to a report by The Institute for College Access & Success. Mr. Guerrero plans to graduate from Edison College about $15,000 in debt before going on to a masters program that will be more costly possibly to pursue a career in broadcast journalism, but maybe something entirely different. I hate to limit myself right now, he said. Quality at a cut-rate priceLocking in a $10,000 tuition means community colleges have found innovative ways to provide a quality education at a great value, Gov. Scott said in a press release. Part of that means degree programs should have specific jobs waiting at the other end, as Edison State interpreted it. The school answered the governors challenge by rolling out two such $10,000 degrees this fall the price reflects tuition only aimed at potential science and math teachers. Im going to be very happy if weve sold a number of students on the fact that you could be a high school teacher or middle school science teacher and were going to help you get there, said Denis Wright, Ph.D., provost and vice president of academic affairs at Edison State College. And when you get out of here, hopefully you wont have any loans. And when you start your career youll start not in the hole. So far there havent been any official takers of the two new $10,000 degrees. But that may be partly because community college students are required by the state to earn a two-year associates degree before declaring a major in a bachelors course of study. So Edison students in their first two years could take advantage of the discounted, though limited, programs. One is a bachelors in secondary biology education; another is in middle grades science education. Like many programs at the school, theyll include a blend of in-person and online classes. More lower-cost degrees could follow if these prove successful. The idea of a $10,000 degree raises the question, Mr. Wright said, Just how far and in what ways can you discount a degree and still accomplish what you want to financially and every other way to offer a good solid degree. We have to continue to attract competent, well-qualified faculty. That takes salaries that attract those individuals. We want to have technology and classrooms that are at least on the bleeding edge of where we want to be if not on the cutting edge. Its quality at a cut-rate price.Route to workStudents seeking degrees of any kind, discount or not, are increasingly career minded, school officials say. Courses of study aimed at specific careers like computer forensics or EMTs have become popular for their more direct route to work. Thats in part because of an influx in older students who used the recession as a time to go back to school, with a job foremost in mind, said Laura Selvey, vice president of financial services for Southwest Florida College, a private school. I think in the recession and then coming out, these people were displaced, she said. Or it seems like they wanted to start a new career, or saw this as an opportunity to change career paths. That was the case with Mr. Guerrero, who left a job in Fort Myers working for a metal manufacturer to start school at Edison State in 2010. He didnt know then what job he wanted to pursue exactly, just that he wanted something better than labor. I kind of dreaded going into work this isnt what I want my life ultimately to come down to, he said. Some of his classmates at Edison State feel the same. Natalie Santana, who is 19, is already a certified nurse assistant. Thats profitable enough, but for me I want to go big, she said, with plans to keep studying to pursue a career as a nurse or doctor. Most of her family didnt go to college, she notes: Id rather just do it now so when Im their age I can have a career I love. Leila Younes, 22, was inspired for similar reasons to work toward an associates degree in arts at Edison State, with plans to transfer to another school to study illustration. One side of her family is full of wealthy people with higher levels of education, she observed; the other is much the opposite. Ive seen the very stark difference between education and not, she said, adding that, I dont want to be a slave to work, I want to actually enjoy it. Amanda Schreiber, 18, is taking five classes at Edison this semester while working full-time at a gymnastics facility in Cape Coral. I feel like education is something you could get that no one could take away from you, she said.Incomes based on education levelsHigher levels of education are generally associated with lower unemployment and more income. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated unemployment and median weekly wages in 2012 among people with different education levels. Among those with high school diplomas, the unemployment rate was 8.3 percent and they earned $652 per week. Those with two-year associates degrees had a 6.2 percent unemployment rate and earned $727 per week. Those with bachelors degrees had a 4.5 percent unemployment rate and earned $1,066. Masters degree graduates had a 3.5 percent unemployment rate, earning $1,300 per week. Among doctoral degree grads, unemployment was at 2.5 percent and their median weekly pay was $1,624.Easing student debtStudents are becoming increasingly practical about education costs, school officials said. The students look at higher education more like a return on an investment, said Joseph Pepe, Ed.D., associate vice president of administration at Hodges University. School websites are also now also required to include a net price calculator that takes into account not just tuition but a range of costs and benefits, including expected grant aid. Then it calculates how much money a student would need to get by going to school fulltime for two semesters (30 credit hours) at that particular school. But most sites used for schools in this article showed outdated costs, such as tuition prices for the 2010-11 school year. That year, roughly four in 10 FGCU grads had incurred debt, The Institute for College Access & Success reports: $22,171 per student on average. At the private Barry University, more than 60 percent of 2011 grads left with about $37,512 in debt. Gov. Scott would like to see more students graduate with no debt. Our goal should be that students do not have to go into debt in order to obtain a degree, he said in a prepared statement. Thats not an option for many students like Mr. Guerrero, who has already accepted whatever debt hell incur in spite of a Pell Grant, part-time work at Banana Republic, and Instant Ramen. When he accepts a diploma for his bachelors degree in the spring, hell be the first one in his immediate family to do so, and for now thats reward enough. Grad school is definitely in my future, he adds.

Naples Weight Loss & Wellbeing Fledgling Honor Flight Collier County set to take offTrip takes WWII and Korean vets to see war memorials in D.C.Forty years ago, the legacies of the Greatest Generation came home to America after years of captivity as POWs of the Vietnam War. Among them was Collier County resident Wayne Odgen Smith, a U.S. Air Force pilot who endured five years and two months of torture by remembering the sacrifices of WWII veterans and hearing the Tap Codes sent nightly by POWs at the Hanoi Hilton, reinforcing their mission to return with honor. Now Mr. Smith wants to return the favor for the inspiration these men and women of WWII gave him. Return with honor is his motto in accepting the honorary chair position of the fledgling Collier County Honor Flight program. The local effort is part of a national nonprofit organization established to transport Americas veterans to Washington, D.C., where they can visit the memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices. The inaugural Collier County Honor Flight is set for Saturday, Nov. 9. My generations and subsequent military generations service to our country is built upon the Greatest Generations legacy of dignity, duty and character, Mr. Smith says. Were returning the favor of the honor they bestowed upon America by taking our residents to see the memorials built to remind us of their sacrifices. Honor Flight priorities are given to WWII, Korean and critically ill veterans who have not seen their respective memorials in the nations capitol city. There is no charge for veterans making the flight; guardians pay a fee of $400 for the honor of assisting a veteran throughout the flight. Collier County Honor Flight was founded by Naples orthodontist and Navy veteran Debi Strand and Air Force veteran Sean Lux. The choice of Mr. Smith as honorary chair was obvious to them. After returning from Vietnam, he, like our WWII veterans, went on with his life to add greatly to our countrys economic development, with no fanfare, Dr. Strand says. Today, after retirement, he consistently works to support veterans causes.About Wayne Odgen SmithBorn in 1943 in Richmond, Ky., and a 1965 graduate of the Air Force Academy, Mr. Smith flew 90 F-4 fighter combat missions over North Vietnam and Laos before being shot down in January 1968. After his years in captivity, he was repatriated in March 1973 as a captain. His honors for service in combat include: two Silver Stars, the Legion of Merit, two Distinguished Flying Crosses, two Bronze V Stars, seven Air Medals and the Purple Heart. His first Silver Star citation reads: First Lieutenant Wayne O. Smith distinguished himself by gallantry in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force as an F4D pilot over North Vietnam on 18 January 1968. On that date, Lt. Smith delivered his ordnance on an important strategic target in the face of intense antiaircraft artillery fire, tracking surface-to-air missiles and attacking hostile aircraft. With exceptional boldness and courage, Lt. Smith then engaged the hostile aircraft in close air-toair combat. As a direct result of Lt. Smiths efforts, his target was heavily damaged, and one hostile aircraft was shot down. By his gallantry and devotion to duty, Lt. Smith has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force. After a distinguished military service, Mr. Smith went on to an illustrious business career. He was president and COO of BF Goodrich, chief executive of BOC Gases for the U.S., Canada, Mexico and South America, and an executive with Air Products and Chemicals. He retired in Naples from MidAmerican Energy as COO in 1999. About Honor Flight In 2012, Honor Flight Networks partnered with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project, the largest American history archive in the world, to capture veterans stories. Earlier this year, Florida became the first state to follow the lead of the 111th U.S. Congress in passing a resolution to make the second Sunday in August Spirit of 5 Day in remembrance of the ending of WWII and in honor of the Greatest Generation. Collier County Honor Flight is seeking veterans of WWII and Korea who would like to travel to Washington, D.C., on the inaugural flight Saturday, Nov. 9, to visit the war memorials established in their honor. The program is also looking for volunteers to accompany each veteran on the one-day trip as a guardian. The trip is free for WWII and Korean War vets; guardians pay $400. Volunteers are also needed to help with efforts in Collier County. For more information, e-mail colliercountyhonorfligh@gmail.com.

Following an extensive national search led by the Conservancy of Southwest Florida board of directors, Mr. Moher was selected among more than 100 applicants. He assumes the role immediately, and brings more than 25 years of experience in local, regional and international conservation organizations to the position. For the past 14 years, he has held senior management positions at the Conservancy, most recently as interim COO since July, helping to fill the role of Andrew McElwaine, former president and CEO. During this time, Mr. Moher worked closely with Conservancy interim CEO Ken Krier, vice-chair of the Conservancy board of directors. Rob Moher is a global visionary who has worked collaboratively with the board and his staff to develop a strategic plan designed to position the Conservancy for continued growth and impact, Mr. Krier said when make the announcement. It has been an honor to work with him during this interim period, and I join the board in wishing him great success. As vice president of development and marketing for the Conservancy, Mr. Moher led strategic philanthropic initiatives and provided leadership support for the Saving Southwest Florida Capital Campaign that raised $38.8 million for construction and renovation of the Conservancy Nature Center as well as for policy and science endowments. Throughout his tenure at the Conservancy, Rob has been instrumental in establishing collaborative partnerships with local individuals, businesses and community groups to help further the Conservancy mission, said Tucker Tyler, former chairman of the Conservancy board of directors who led the search committee. In addition, he empowers the staff, volunteers and board with the direction and resources to positively impact the organization and the greater Southwest Florida community. Prior to coming to the Conservancy, Mr. Moher served as regional director for Bahamas National Trust, where he was responsible for protection, management and development of three national parks including coastal and marine parks. He had previously served as a research officer for the International Development Research Center in Ottawa, Ontario, where he was involved in environmental policy research on an international level. Mr. Moher earned a masters degree in international affairs from Carleton University in Ottawa and a bachelors degree Queens University in Kingston, Ontario. In addition, he is a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) and completed his Certificate in Fundraising Management (CFRM) from Indiana University Fundraising School. In 2012, he was named Fundraising Executive of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Everglades Chapter. With our 50th anniversary season upon us, it is an opportune time to reflect on our accomplishments as a conservation community as well as to challenge ourselves to advance the mission of the Conservancy to preserve our quality of life in Southwest Florida, Mr. Moher said in a release about his appointment as president and CEO. However, none of this would be possible without the support of our staff, volunteers and loyal members. They bring an array of experiences, expertise and talents that inspire and motivate me every day. I am grateful for their continued support of our mission and look forward to what we will accomplish together. Lynn Slabaugh, chair of the Conservancy board, added her appreciation for Mr. Mohers leadership qualities, in-depth knowledge of the organization and passion and commitment to the purpose and mission of the Conservancy. As the Conservancy prepares to celebrate 50 years of helping to protect our land, water and wildlife in Southwest Florida, there is no one better prepared to lead and inspire this organization into the future, Ms. Slabaugh concluded. Moher selected for top spot at Conservancy from right here at homePlant a tree, keep American beautiful. Thats the theme for the National Planting Days campaign that kicked off in September around the nation. Here in Collier County, Keep Collier Beautiful and GreenCare are celebrating National Planting Days in November with a tree giveaway at the annual Southwest Florida Yard and Garden Show on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26-27, at the Collier County/University of Florida IFAS Extension Office, 14700 Immokalee Road (next to the Collier County fairgrounds). Organizers are asking the community to join this volunteer effort to beautify the community by planting saplings at home, school or the workplace. Individuals can stop by the show to pick a free sapling. Classrooms, groups or organizations interested in organizing a tree-planting event are urged to contact KCB to make arrangements. Tell your friends and family about the importance of native species and get them involved, says Gordon Vanscoy, owner of GreenCare and a KCB board member. GreenCare staff will be on hand to offer tips for planting and caring for the saplings. Individuals or groups can also contact Ms. Vanscoy directly by calling 2882222 or e-mailing gvanscoy@greencare.us. National Planting Day celebrates the value and power of native species in restoring ecological balance to the environment while creating greener, more beautiful communities.

The tree giveaway is part of the National Wildlife Federations Trees For Wildlife program. NWF is an educational partner of KCB and Keep America Beautiful. Jim Zimmerman, KCB president, says photos of tree plantings are encouraged and can be sent to KCB for sharing with its national partners.

So it came as no surprise when I learned that the Marco Island Womans Club, which turns 47 this year, was also very instrumental in the formation of the library, hospital, youth center and the historical cemetery it that community. These are just a few of the many improvements the members of the Marco club have undertaken over the years to make their island more enriching. The original library on Marco was in a room in the volunteer fire station. It was the Marco Island Womans Club members who initiated the effort to find a bigger, permanent home. Im told they approached Deltona, one-time developers on the island, and convinced them to donate their Welcome to Marco Polynesian-style shack for the cause. Thanks to the tireless efforts of many, the shack was remodeled, carpeted and stocked with 110 books before it opened to much fanfare in 1968. The inventory had increased to 18,127 volumes four years later, with help from individual donations as well as the Collier County Public Library. The Marco Island Library outgrew its donated quarters and then found a new home on Winterberry Drive, now home to the Collier County Tax Collector. Once again, the library outgrew its quarters due to the islands continued growth. The present-day library was built in 1988 and is still expanding. In 1998, the womens club, in collaboration with the Marco Island Historical Society, funded a lovely gazebo as an addition to the library. It has since been relocated to the Marco Island Historical Museum property across the street from the library. The health and welfare of Marco residents has also always been an important priority for the womans club. Members have spent many years gathering donations for equipment, dating back to their early formation. In 1977, the club purchased a defibrillator for Marcos ambulance service. Two years later, all hospital donations were dedicated to a building fund that became a reality as the Marco Island Health Care Center. In addition to the financial donations over the years, many club members also donate their time to the center as auxiliary members. Club member were also instrumental in clearing and restoring the Marco Island Historical Cemetery. Tending to the cemetery garden, which is named on behalf of the club, remains an important project for members. One of the clubs most important projects to date stems from members strong interest in the education of high school students on Marco who hope to attend college. Started in 1988 with a generous donation from member Signe Gleich and boosted by another gift in 2011 from former member Verne Cabooris the Marco Island Womans Club Education Foundation awards several scholarships each year, including the Verne Cabooris Scholarship of $12,000. Over the years, the club has awarded more than $370,000 to graduating high school seniors. With family also a priority among members, the club initiated the development of Marco Islands original youth center, which has blossomed into the Greater Marco Family YMCA. While programs to benefit the Marco Island community are the main focus of the clubs efforts, members hold a food drive every November to help stock the pantry shelves at St. Matthews House, and they collect toys and gifts every December for The Shelter for Abused Women & Children. Not bad for an initial group of 16 friends who wanted to help support the people and nonprofit organizations of Marco Island. Kudos to one and all who have been involved since 1966. Residents of Marco who would like to get involved should call Joyce Frame at 642-9079 or visit www.marcowomansclub.com to find out more. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981.

($500.00 per eye) October 1 November 30 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 NEWS A19 home. It isnt just a local kitschy oddity. The domes have their own Facebook page, an honor shared by another white dome surrounded by water, the Jefferson Memorial. The giant bubbles were once connected by wooden walkways to make a home, a private vacation retreat for the Tennessee family of Bob and Margaret Lee. According to family interviews, Mr. Lee retired early from a lucrative career in oil. He then directed his energies, technical skills and vast imagination toward a miscellany of inventions, with a particular passion for sustainable living. The Lees also had the good taste to love Southwest Florida, and so purchased lots on a pristine slice of sand on the bridgeless isle of Cape Romano. According to Everglades matriarch Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Cape Romano was named for British surveyor Bernard Roman who sailed by it in 1775. In The Everglades: River of Grass, Miss Douglas wrote, (the cape) juts boldly south, at the head of the Ten Thousand Islands where Indian canoes and small Spanish vessels had always moved between Cuba and the beaches north of Cape Romano. Juan Ponce de Leon was at Cape Romano, too, long before surveyor Roman passed by. During Ponces summer of 1513 sea journey, the bold jut of the cape was mapped for all time on the famous Freducci 1515 chart depicting La Florida. Cape Romano has stood sandy sentinel to a sundry parade of people. After the Calusa Indians came Spanish conquistadors, followed by Cuban fishermen and pirates, outlaws, in-laws and Cracker fisherfolk. In 1980, Bob Lee and family staked their claim on the sunny spit and started crafting their retro futuristic, scrubbing bubbles, igloo-shaped vacation dream home several hundred feet inland from the gulf.Living off the gridMr. Lees business may have been oil, but his dome home was designed to live as unreliant on the grid as possible. His Cape Romano creation utilized solar for all power systems and had gutte rs that filled a 23,000-gallon cistern with rainwater. Cement for building construction was made using island sand, and walls were foam-filled for temperature regulation. Pilings allowed for the free-flow of water under the structure, should such ever become necessary during a storm, and round roofs meant little wind resistance. Technologically speaking, the futuristic home was off the grid and ahead of its time, but it also suffered no lack of amenities. Even by todays standards it was well fitted for comfort, boasting air conditioning, skylights, a hot tub, satellite dish and lighted walkways to waterfronts on both sides of the house. But why was everything round? Janet Maples, Mr. Lees daughter recalls, My dad thought the corners of rooms were wasted space as were the corners of the ceiling. He thought the dome ceiling gave the feeling of openness. He was right. The rooms felt very large and open. The buildings have withstood the onslaught of nature. The domes endured two major hurricanes, Andrew in 1992 and Wilma in 2005, and the gulfs utter rearrangement of land around them. Hurricane Wilma came ashore with winds of 120 mph and Cape Romano in her crosshairs. According to a 2009 U. S. Geological Survey, the storm pushed a wall of water 15 feet into the mangroves and spread three to six inches of gulf-bottom muddy sediments across 110 square miles. The mighty storm did exact her pound from the ancient isle; however, it was not the domes that caved, but the land itself. Nature has bent and broken but not yet destroyed Mr. Lees monuments to human ingenuity. Time and tides have taken their toll. Cape Romano has undergone a transformation, a total reshaping. Morgan Pass, once a navigable stretch of water on the backside of the beach, filled in with sand. Thumbing through historical photos, the shifting ground makes it appear the domes crept themselves into the sea, until today they are totally surrounded by water. Cape Romano got a makeover and the dome homes got a new yard. When her father built their home, Mrs. Maples recalls, it stood so far inland it seemed like a long walk to the beach. The beach grew uppity and marched itself right on by the dome homes, of which Miss Douglas might write, now jut boldly from the sea. The view from beneathOn a recent trip to Cape Romano, I put on a snorkel and mask and slipped underwater for a peek at Mr. Lees sodden dream. The spectacle was as surprising underwater as over. Ive snorkeled Grand Cayman, Mexico and Fiji, yet have never witnessed a more diverse, crowded concentration of undersea life than what has taken up residence under the remnants of those domes. It was as if all the fish and rays living along that part of the Collier County coast decided to hangout in one location. To make the sight even more remarkable, swirling like iridescent tornado clouds around the gathering were millions of shimmering, silver baitfish. I snorkeled with a companion, a braver, more experienced diver, who would swim under the domes and herd clouds of fish in my direction. It was dizzying and splendid, and gave an all-new context to the decaying domes arching high overhead.A murky futureThe Lee family sold their Cape property years ago and the domes are currently held in a family trust of Naples resident John Tosto. Mr. Tosto purchased the property in 2005 with the intention of renovating the domes to make them habitable, but has since run into hurdles with an entire flock of governmental regulating agencies. Several years ago he was ordered to remove the domes entirely. When they did not disappear, Collier County Code Enforcement imposed stiff fines, reaching into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. It would break Daddys heart to see it like it is, but what he always said before he died was that it was worth it for the time he had in it, Mrs. Maples is quoted in a 2012 interview. The author, Natalie Strom, adds, Those who have seen the domes for themselves certainly agree. Granted, it is disconcerting to see those domes tilting odd-angled from the sea. And if judged by their worthiness for human habitation, then surely they are metaphors for endings, not rebirth, for decay, not vigor. But if Mr. Lee were alive today and could return to his beloved Cape Romano to slip beneath that clear briny water and take a masked swim around, I think his heart would swell with pride to see that his dream of sustainability thrives. The flurry and fuss of colorful, busy, swirling sea life would surely astound and thrill him. Its a fishy riot down there, the likes and number of which Mr. Lee never enjoyed inside his beautifully strange shore home. I hope neither the Tosto family nor any well-intentioned regulatory agency ever destroys the domes. They are providing a healthy habitat, clearly beloved by countless creatures of the sea and a host of the feathered sort, too. Mr. Lees dream should be allowed to age gracefully, as it and Cape Romano itself have been doing all these years hand-in-hand with the elements, until nature engulfs the dream. Authors note: In case this entices anyone to snorkel or dive this beautiful site, beware of strong currents, tangles of fishing line wrapped around pilings and giant stingrays buried in the sand.

HEALTHY LIVINGSalud Immokalee takes aim at obesity BY KAYDEE TUFF AND RON HARTUNGSpecial to Florida WeeklyNo sooner had the ink dried on Dr. Javier Rosados study of obesity in Immokalee than he transformed from academic observer into anti-obesity coach. In his paper last March in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, the Florida State University College of Medicine assistant professor and psychologist at Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida concluded: Interventions are needed that address both childhood obesity and parent weight status among Latino migrant farm workers. He didnt wait for someone else to provide those interventions. For Dr. Rosado, clinical training director for psychology at the FSU College of Medicines Health Education Site, the people of this migrant-rich community are not just research subjects; theyre his neighbors. With the support of the FSU College of Medicine, University of Florida IFAS-Extension Family Nutrition Program, and Immokalee Arts in Health, Dr. Rosado assembled a team of medical personnel, nutrition educators, a soccer coach and a Zumba instructor to create Salud Immokalee, a year-long multi-disciplinary program designed to help youngsters and their parents make healthy lifestyle choices. The concept of managed health care is the core mission of the Healthcare Network, which provides primary medical and dental care to more than 45,000 patients annually at 13 locations throughout Collier County. More recently, the network expanded its behavioral health services through a partnership with FSU. Unlike Little League or ballet lessons, Salud Immokalee includes an educational component on the dangers of obesity and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. The program targeted 30 Healthcare Network pediatric patients ages 6-11 with a body mass index at or above the 95th percentile. Most of these children have high cholesterol, high blood pressure and are already at risk for developing diabetes. Without intervention, they face a lifetime of poor health. To be effective, the program had to take root in the home. In his study, Dr. Rosado surveyed each parents understanding of obesity and found that initially, most were not overly concerned about their childs weight, thinking they would outgrow the problem. Culture can also influence parental perceptions of weight, the doctor knows. In the Latino culture, mothers have a preference for plumper children, associate thinness with poor health, and may fail to perceive their children as overweight, he says. Many parents did not connect chronic health concerns, such as asthma, to obesity. Once made aware of the consequences, the majority of the parents agreed to adjust diet and increase physical activity, not only for the overweight child, but the entire family. What we want to do is change behavior, Dr. Rosado says. Research shows us that it takes at least 12 months of consistent contact to really make an impact. Once these kids know how to take control of their health and weight, with the support of their parents, theyll be empowered to live healthier lives. To encourage healthier behavior, the children and their parents received 18 weeks of classroom instruction and hands-on learning built around three essential elements: nutrition, physical activity and behavior.

Before AfterCerner partnership proves a win-win One important reason that NCH has steadily improved the care we deliver to patients is our seven-year partnership with Cerner, the information technology specialists. Forbes has recognized Cerner as the seventh most innovative company in America and the 13th most innovative company in the world. Two years ago, Cerner had the largest research and development department devoted to health care IT in the world, and has since added 50 percent more capacity. Our partnership has been so eventful and mutually beneficial that at the recent annual Cerner Health Conference (attended by 10,000 health-care and IT professionals from 667 systems and 23 countries), NCH Chief Nursing Officer Michele Thoman was chosen to follow Cerner CEO Neal Pattersons keynote address. Ms. Thomans prestigious role at the conference was emblematic of an alliance between two successful and growing institutions. I had the privilege of introducing Mr. Patterson to a smaller group of select colleagues at the conference who share a similar deep and growing relationship with Cerner. I compared Mr. Patterson with others who have contributed over the recent decades to changing the way we practice health care, among them: Alexander Fleming and the beginning of the antibiotic era in the 1940s; Morton Levin, who made the connection between tobacco and lung cancer in the 1950s; and John Charnley, who did the first total hip replacement in the 1960s. Mr. Patterson and two colleagues left secure jobs to start an IT company that initially helped pathologists with billing. From that modest start and after more than a decade of struggle, their Cerner Corp. has had as profound an effect on the health-care industry as any of their predecessors. Mr. Pattersons keynote stressed the need to evolve quickly from in-patient emphasis on electronic health or medical records which all successful hospitals will have within a decade to a new business model based on connectivity, interoperability and the ability to predict and subsequently prevent illness. This digital health-care data, he said, must be utilized intelligently to discover problems, predict illnesses and prevent disease. Our own Ms. Thoman followed Mr. Patterson by sharing NCHs IT story, emphasizing our use in North Naples of a new mobility and communications program for smart phones that brings together communications, alarm management and nursing workflow tools on a single device. By mid-winter we will have our entire system using iPhones to connect. Being intertwined with a world IT leader such as Cerner expands the scope of the competencies we can deliver to our patients and our community. It is a partnership that has helped us immeasurably, and one we look forward to enhancing in the years ahead. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org

According to UF IFAS Extension nutrition educator Suzanne Fundingsland, the key to classroom success was to present the information not as a diet but as a way of life for the family. The typical roadblocks to healthy eating for migrant families include lack of knowledge about how food affects health, lack of adequate kitchen equipment and facilities to prepare and store fresh foods and lack of transportation to shop on a regular basis, Ms. Funjdingsland says. Despite the challenges, participants were eager to put their classroom knowledge to work, she adds. One mom talked about how she was changing the way she made her tortillas without fat and her family was OK with it, which surprised her. Another mom was going to start substituting whole wheat flour in her tortillas. Salud Immokalee participants recently celebrated graduation night. While parents got reminders about diet and exercise, children reviewed the food groups and yelled out examp les of foods labeled Go (carrots!), Slow (pancakes!) and Whoa (fatty, salty chips!). Soon, half of them were out back chasing soccer balls and half were in a heart-pounding Zumba exercise class, where the energy level was all go and no whoa. At evenings end, each child received a certificate, pretzels, fruit and a jump rope. Each parent received a promise that Dr. Rosado and his team will keep tabs on them and their children through next spring, taking vital signs and inquiring about successes and challenges. Research among migrant farm workers is rare, and Dr. Rosado says he is thrilled by this opportunity. That is why community-based research is so powerful. You dont have to wait years to put findings into action. Beyond the health benefits, what pleased Dr. Rosado most was that during the program, parents discovered each other. Its an immigrant community, he says. A lot of people come on their own. They dont have extended family members. They dont know many people. They end up isolated in their homes. Now they have a support group. And hope. Ron Hartung is the assistant director of communications at FSU College of Medicine.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickTaking a pet to the emergency hospital is something none of us wants to do. Its scary and stressful for you and your dog or cat. Weve been there more times than we like to think about, and we have some tips to help you cope. We hope you wont ever need to use them, but tuck them away in the back of your mind just in case. Protect yourself when handling a sick or injured animal. Even the most docile dog or cat can bite when in pain. Keep a muzzle on hand or ask your veterinarian to show you how to safely tie one using a scarf or tie. Be patient. Your pet wont be seen in the order of arrival. Animals who are most unstable will be seen first. We do them in order of medical need, says our friend and colleague Dr. Tony Johnson, an emergency and critical care specialist at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine. If I have a hit-bycar and a dog with diarrhea, even if the dog with diarrhea has been waiting two hours, the hit-by-car is going to get seen first. The only time someone jumps that line, he says, is if theyre bringing in a pet to be euthanized. Be prepared to wait as little as five minutes or as long as six hours. It all depends on what other cases are there or come in while youre waiting. If you think about it before you leave the house, grab a book or your iPod in case youll be there for a while. If possible, have someone go with you or meet you there. You may need help getting your pet in and out of the car and into the hospital. And its always good to have someones hand to hold while youre waiting. Designate a single person to communicate with the veterinarian, so he or she doesnt have to repeat information to multiple family members. Take notes or record the conversation on your smartphone so you can refer back to it. Dont forget your wallet in your mad rush out of the house. Most veterinary hospitals wont treat your pet without proof that you can pay for care. Your regular veterinary hospital might do that if youve been a client for years they know where you live and that youre probably not going to skip town but an emergency hospital isnt in that position. It sounds avaricious, but there are not too many emergency hospitals that are going to do something on a handshake, Dr. Johnson says. ERs usually see people once. They cant separate out the people who are a risk of not paying from those who arent. Theyre not trying to be greedy. Know when to go. Some things are obvious. Take your pet to the emergency hospital in the following situations: allergic reactions any animal bite bloated belly bloody diarrhea difficulty breathing distress from excessively hot or cold temperatures eye injuries frequent or projectile vomiting heavy bleeding ingestion of a toxic substance, such as antifreeze, human medications or snail bait seizures serious trauma, such as being hit by a car straining to urinate or defecate sudden lameness unconsciousness or collapse venomous snake or spider bites If youre not sure, well, we recommend erring on the side of caution. Like their counterparts in human medicine, veterinary emergency clinics are expensive, but sometimes the cost of a visit is a price worth paying for peace of mind. And when a visit saves your pets life? Priceless. Know when to take your pet to the emergency hospital. >>Bridget is a friendly, 1-year-old domestic shorthair who loves to play with her podmates and with people, too.

THE DIVA DIARIESWhats so wonderful about the worm?Several years ago, a friend who knows me very well gifted me with a little wall plaque that reads: The early bird gets the worm, but has a very boring social life. While some might find the phrase cute or funny, I consider them words of wisdom. My personal motto. My mantra, even. When it comes to mornings, I am decidedly diva-esque. I have never, ever, EVER been a morning person. I tend to think it might even be genetic. My dear mother was a big fan of sleeping in. In fact, whenever my dad would take me to Sunday morning services and some of the nosy church ladies would ask him why my mom wasnt there, hed just smile and tell them that she preferred to worship at St. Mattress. Meanwhile, we always had house cats, so to get me up for school in the morning, my father would resort to putting kittens all over my bed it was the only thing that worked. When I was 12 and got a job delivering the Dayton Daily News during a particularly cold Ohio winter, getting out of my warm, comfy bed at 4 a.m. was pure torture. So you can probably guess how thrilled my mom was to be woken up by umpteen phone calls from livid newspaper subscribers along my route nearly every morning. The next job I got was when I was 15 as a bus girl in a restaurant at night. A much better fit, career wise. I have always been and always will be a night owl, and I no longer apologize for it. I blame Benjamin Franklin for labeling morning people as virtuous with that whole Early to bed, early to rise nonsense. Mornings do nothing for me. First of all, the morning lighting is harsh and unflattering, while sunset casts such warm, soft rays everyone looks better at sunset. Also, morning traffic is just awful, loud and chaotic and speedy and scary. And then there are morning events, which I rarely cover for obvious reasons, but also because theres no sparkle. Everyone is wearing business suits and nametags and drinking coffee and acting way to perky its like theyre all congratulating themselves for getting up when it was still pitch black outside and attending an event before they even go to work. Ill admit it right now: Im not even crazy about luncheons, because usually you have to be there at the crack of 10:30 a.m. Im attracted to evening events. Give me cocktail dresses, martinis and music. I know, I know that the early bird gets the worm. But honestly, I really do not want the worm. Give me the stars instead. A milestone Hospital Ball When it comes to the ultimate night out with lots and lots of sparkle and glitter, nothing trumps the NCH Hospital Ball year after year for 55 years. And the fact that its happening this Saturday, Oct. 26, means that gala season is officially underway. Co-presenting sponsors are TeamHealth and DeAngelis Diamond Healthcare Group, and with Sen.

Workers are competing to see who can best maximize their fuel economy. Claude Masters, FPL manager of vehicle acquisition and fuel, calls it an internal phenomenon, a new company culture focused on fuel savings. FPL has amassed more than 550 vehicles that are either plug-in hybrids, electric-gas hybrids or all-electric. These electric vehicles make up about 92 percent of the companys light-duty fleet. The largest utility in the state, FPL possesses one of the largest hybrid-electric fleets in the nation. Automotive Fleet Magazine ranks us up with the big guys: UPS, FedEx, Coca-Cola, Mr. Masters says. Were No. 8 in the nation. Thats a pretty good statistic. FPL has gone electric, the company wants to go more electric and it wants you to go electric too. But FPL sells electricity. To those who think an electric company pushing electric cars might be self-serving, FPL management maintains that besides being better for the environment and reducing the countrys dependency on foreign oil, electric vehicles lower their operating costs, and if their operating costs go down, customer bills could go down. Electric vehicles are 80 percent cheaper to operate, says Anne-Louise Seabury, FPL Electric Vehicles Program Manager. Reducing our operating costs helps us reduce customer bills. FPL execs want to increase their electric fleet across all product lines, meaning any new vehicle they acquire, COURTESY PHOTOSThe FPL fleet includes hybrids, plug-in hybrids, all electric vehicles and biodiesel vehicles.

Taxes remain very much on their minds and, after reading this column, might be elevated to the top priority concern. U.S. taxpayers in upper income brackets are feeling the effects of increased levels of taxation and they rightly worry that tax increases and new levies are not over. The issue of taxation has become a prominent global discussion, so much so, that the International Monetary Fund just released a report titled Taxing Times. The IMF considers global taxation to be within the purview of its pontificating, as it is concerned about the worlds monetary and debt conditions. Taxation is thought by many political leaders to be the solution to their problem; i.e., government budget deficits can be lessened and existing high levels of world government debt relative to GDP can be lowered through a variety of taxation measures. (Of course, those operating from the perspective that government spending must be curtailed do not consider taxation to be the cure; they consider cutbacks in government spending to be the solution.) The reality is that many advanced countries (including the U.S.) provide some form of government subsidy or support to more than 50 percent of their citizens and, in effect, have created a majority voting constituency that is aligned with largesse in government spending. The voting minority is aligned with cutbacks. These voting majorities have helped create a worldwide group-think about taxation, as evidenced in the IMFs report. Per the IMF report, advanced economies of the world share a common problem: the average gross debt ratio in advanced economies is expected to stabilize at slightly below 110 percent of GDP some 35 percentage points above its 2007 level Maintaining public debt at these historic peaks would leave advanced economies exposed to confidence shocks and rollover risks and hampers potential growth. Thus, it remains important to lower public debt, although it will inevitably be a slow process. So, per the IMF, the governments will move to capture more tax revenue dollars. How will it be done? The report reviews the many varied forms of taxation and looks at their effects on long-term growth. The concern is quite simple: taxation forms that satisfy an immediate need for funds might negatively impact a countrys GDP growth (and therefore diminish future tax receipts that are tied to economic activity). In laymans terms, corporate taxation should be the last form of taxation to be toyed with (as increases and constant changing of corporate tax rules discourages corporate capital investment/formation.) In IMF jargon: The effects of the tax mix on long-term growth have been widely studied. The literature suggests that corporate income taxes have the most negative effect, followed by labor income taxes, then consumption taxes, and finally property taxes. In line with this growth hierarchy, a recent IMF work finds, for a wide set of countries, that a revenueneutral rebalancing that reduces income taxes while increasing consumption and property taxes is associated with faster long-term growth (Acosta-Ormaeche and Yoo, 2012). However, the IMF does suggest that the days of multinational corporate tax evasion are (and should be) numbered. For the United States (where the issue has been most closely studied) an upper estimate of the loss from tax planning by multinationals is about U.S. $60 billion each year about one-quarter of all revenue from the corporate income tax (Gravelle, 2013). Some of the coolest companies have led the multinational pack by creating mind-boggling complexity to evade taxes. Google, Starbucks, and other household names have famously managed to pay very little corporate tax but the issue is likely an even greater concern for developing countries, typically more reliant on corporate tax receipts. The IMF report, in its search for more taxation-grab ideas, poses the question: are the wealthy a revenue source that could be tapped more? The IMF expands the U.S. administrations increase taxation on the wealthy argument from income taxation into asset taxation. The IMF rationale is: Household wealth is very unequally distributed even more so than income. In advanced economies, the top 10 percent own, on average, more than half of the wealth (up to 75 percent in the United States). It is, arguably, a better indicator of ability to pay than annual income and indeed taxes on wealth and transfers have historically been a major source of revenue. Now, however, they yield very little slightly fewer than 2 percent of GDP on average in the OECD. Possibly the most frightening part is the IMF reports ending which proposed the merits of a special, onetime tax on the very wealthy. The very wealthy should take heed that the worst might possibly be yet to come, as a capital levy is already being suggested and discussed by world leaders.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 The Naples law office Quarles & Brady, through its national corporate social responsibility program called Quarles Cares, has launched an antibullying initiative that provides financial support to organizations that offer anti-bullying education and raise awareness of anti-bullying efforts. Quarles & Brady is committed to leading by example in its Quarles Care efforts during my tenure, and Im particularly excited about this new initiative, says Kimberly Leach Johnson, newly elected chairperson of Quarles & Brady. I believe an appreciation for fairness and justice develops at an early age, so it is important to me personally to help create a safe and cruelty-free environment in our schools. The Quarles Cares program provides opportunities for the firms attorneys and staff to commit themselves personally to civic and charitable efforts as good corporate citizens, to make better the world around them. Ms. Johnson selected the anti-bullying cause to represent a part of her leadership legacy. To kick off the initiative, the Naples office hosted a luncheon with representatives of the Collier County Sheriffs Office for a discussion about the causes of bullying and prevention measures. According to information at the presentation, one in four school-age children will be bullied sometime during their adolescence. However, only one in 25 will report the case. Five intrepid entrepreneurs have been named f inalists in the 1 9th annual Southwest Florida Blue Chip Community Business Award program that honors business owners who find innovative ways to overcome adversity. The finalists will be recognized and one will be named winner of the 2013 Blue Chip Award at a luncheon ceremony Thursday, Nov. 7, at Harborside Event Center in downtown Fort Myers. The finalists are all success stories, says Scott Gregory, vice president of event sponsor BB&T-Oswald Trippe and Company. They serve as models for other businesses, rising above adversity, which is fundamental to the future of our community. This years five finalists are: Ardent Manor: Daniel and Helen Waite gave up lucrative jobs in the hospitality industry in Miami to move to Naples and open a day center for seniors. They set out to create a Four Seasons of day centers, pouring their retirement savings and Dans severance money from being laid off into their dream, creating a country club environment and hiring top-notch staff. They opened in September 2009. Six months later, they had run out of money. Unable to find work locally in the midst of the recession, Dan had to take a job in Jackson Hole, Wyo., for a year, sending 90 percent of his pay to Helen to keep the doors open. Just as they were getting back on their feet, the landlord sold the property and they had to vacate immediately. Their clients took the case to the newspapers and the new landlords relented. Today, the center is operating in the black. Direct Access Home Health: Larry Beuer and Wendy Murray opened their home health business in 2010 from an office Ms. Murray shared with another company. That first year, Mr. Beuer lost his father to cancer and went through a tough divorce. When they moved into their own office in North Fort Myers a year after opening, Ms. Murray walked in on a burglary by a neighbor the first night. Nonetheless, they persevered, handling marketing, staffing, contracting and billing themselves, even staffing the phones on weekends and overnights on their own. They went to every health fair, called on assisted living facilities and nursing homes, contacted trust officers and guardians for referrals and spoke at senior communities, growing their business with hard work and good service. Three years later, they have a successful company with a full-time staff of nine, more than 150 caregivers and two more companies that offer counseling and non-emergency transport. East West Veterinary Care Center: Veterinarian Elizabeth Dixie Brown purchased a failing veterinary clinic in Cape Coral in June 2007. With virtually no clients, a clinic full of wornout equipment and a building whose value would plummet in three years, she struggled to stay in business. She believed that providing good service and treating each client well would eventually build her practice. In 2011, she bought another failed practice but this time turned things around by extending office hours to six days a week and until 9 p.m. each night, offering 24-hour emergency care to established clients and making house calls. She learned acupuncture, traditional Chinese veterinary practices and chiropractic medicine, which drew many more clients. Today she is building a new clinic and anticipates hiring 10 to 12 additional staff members and expanding services. Gatsbys Pizza: Greg and Jackie Chapin had operated their Midwesternstyle pizza restaurant in Naples for eight years when Greg was diagnosed with brain cancer. His diagnosis forced them to close the popular restaurant so he could undergo surgery and related treatment. It was his goal during treatment to regain his health and strength and reopen the restaurant so he could be a proud example of a cancer survivor. When he did recover, thats what he did. This time the couple headed to Bonita Springs. They opened their new restaurant in 2013. Greg personally greets guests at their tables, providing a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Today customers from their original Ohio pizza shop will stop in when they are in town to enjoy Gatsbys pizza. Purely You Spa: Jennifer Alvarezs business was born from diversity. Diagnosed with cancer which turned out to be a benign, but fast-growing desmoid tumor in her leg, she underwent surgery and, when it returned, chemotherapy, which caused acne. This sparked her interest in skin care, which led her to earn an aestheticians license. She offered organic facials and other services and opened an organic spa in Naples in 2009. She set up the spa herself, using environmentally friendly materials and insisting on using organic products. To build a client base, she networked heavily, serving as president of the Womens Network of Collier County and donating more than $20,000 in spa services to local charities for their fundraisers. Her spa business has flourished, recently winning the Greenest Spa Award from Eminence Organic Skin Care.Luncheon speaker In addition to recognizing the finalists and honoring the winner of the Blue Chip Award, the luncheon will feature a keynote address by motivational speaker Erik Stolhanske. Born without a fibula, Mr. Stolhanske overcame his disability to become one of Hollywoods most popular comedic actors, as well as a writer and producer. His story of overcoming obstacles and persevering through adversity, even when the odds are stacked against you, is poignant and often humorous. As in years past, sponsors BB&TOswald Trippe and Company and BB&T Bank has arranged for the keynote speaker to donate his time for appearances at area high schools the day prior to the award luncheon. Mr. Stolhanske will visit Lorenzo Walker Technical High School and Immokalee High School. In addition, principals are invited to attend the Blue Chip Award luncheon along with students. The 2013 Southwest Florida Blue Chip Community Business Award is endorsed by the Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce, Business Observer, Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce, Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce, Charlotte County Economic Development Office, Christian Chamber of Southwest Florida, City of Cape Coral Economic Development Office, Edison State College, Englewood-Cape Haze Area Chamber of Commerce, Florida Gulf Coast University, Florida Weekly, Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce, Greater Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce, Gulfshore Business, Hodges University, Lee County Economic Development Office/Horizon Council, Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce, Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce, Southwest Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Fort Myers Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 they want it to be electric, even medium or heavy-duty trucks. The company was instrumental in the development of hybrid-electric bucket trucks, designing the specs and deploying the first truck of its kind in 2005. In 2012 we were able to reduce our CO2 emissions by 2,500 metric tons, says Mr. Masters, attributing the decline to the companys hybrids, plugin hybrids, all-electric vehicles and their biodiesel fleet, which includes hybrid-electric bucket trucks. We calculated 295,000 gallons of fuel reduction over the last year, Mr. Masters continues. And were seeing that number grow. Its difficult to convert those gallons into monetary terms, as the price of fuel fluctuates, but Mr. Masters says if you multiply those gallons by a conservative $3.50 per gallon, thats over a million dollars in fuel savings. Mr. Masters says FPL has made public commitments to increase its electric fleet because the company wants to mobilize the marketplace. Our intent is to send a signal to these guys: If you build it, we will buy it, he says. And were putting our money where our mouth is. For instance, we have 74 hybrid-electric bucket trucks and we intend to add another 30 to 35 this next year These guys building these medium, heavy-duty trucks, we want them to know, the market is real. Growing up as a mechanic, working on cars all his life, Mr. Masters cannot help but be surprised by how easy electric vehicles are to maintain. He says when you pop the hood, it looks more like the trunk: theres nothing underneath it. He says your main maintenance will be your tires. Talking about alternative fuel, Mr. Masters says natural gas seems to be the soup du jour, but when trying to decide whether to go the natural-gas route or the electric-hybrid route, he likes to remind people that natural gas does not have an established infrastructure, but when it comes to electric, the infrastructures already there. Even in the exaggerated event of every Floridian going out and buying an electric car tomorrow, Ms. Seabury says FPL would not be concerned with its electric grid. The company has noticed most electric car owners charge their cars at night, not at a time of peak power use. People overcomplicate electric vehicles. They are very simple, says Ms. Seabury, who has been driving an electric car for over two years. You plug it in at night, the car does its thing while youre sleeping, you wake up and go about your business. Ms. Seabury says Floridians are responding to the appeal, with more than 5,200 electric vehicle owners in the state. She encourages anyone to take a test drive when they can. Beyond saving money and the environment, she says people buy electric cars for the thrill of the ride. The Lee County Electric Cooperative has been keeping an eye on electric vehicles. LCEC serves 200,000 customers in five counties. Public Relations Manager Karen Ryan says thats small potatoes compared to FPLs 4.6 million accounts across 35 counties. Our fleet, although adequate for our customer base, is not that large. We have an excellent preventative maintenance program so we typically dont need to purchase replacement vehicles that often, one or two a year maybe, Ms. Ryan says. LCEC has approximately 65 heavyduty trucks and 150 smaller trucks and vans. But compared to FPLs total fleet of roughly 3,500 vehicles, Ms. Ryan says LCEC savings would be limited. We are keeping an eye on the developments in vehicle technology and exploring our options to see when electric vehicles might be beneficial for our business, Ms. Ryan says. The last time we evaluated it, it was not cost effective for us. LCEC purchased a hybrid car in 2002 and Ms. Ryan says when the timing is right, the company will be part of the electric vehicle movement. As far as the conundrum of electric utilities pushing electric cars, Ms. Ryan agrees with FPL. Promoting electric vehicles isnt self-serving for utilities for several reasons. We have an obligation to help preserve/conserve natural resources, she says. Conserving fuel resources that are used to power vehicles makes a positive impact on the customers wallet. If you compare the cost of a kilowatt to the cost of a gallon of gasoline, there is no comparison.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Should You Sell?Too many of us are much more focused on whether to buy a certain stock than on when we should sell it. Thats a mistake, because profits are reaped only when you sell, and holding onto a stinker for too long can hurt you.So when should you sell? Well, dont sell just because a stock or the market is falling, or youve heard some rumors, or someone tells you to sell. Do consider selling: If you dont know exactly how the company makes its money. If you cant remember why you bought it. If the reason you bought a stock is no longer valid. Maybe its no longer growing briskly, or its moving in a new direction that doesnt seem promising. If it has some persistent troubling characteristics, such as shrinking profit margins. Short-term problems can be OK, but be on the lookout for longterm ones. If a stock has become significantly overvalued relative to what you think its worth. Consider the tax consequences, though. If you expect continued growth for a long time, you might want to just hang on. If you find a more attractive place to invest your money. If your calculations suggest that a holding is now fairly valued and another stock appears to be undervalued by 50 percent, you stand to gain more in the other stock. Again, consider tax effects. If a stock is your only holding. Portfolios should be diversified, but not too diversified. For many people, eight to 15 stocks is about right. If one holding grows to represent more than, say, 20 to 30 percent of your portfolio, consider selling some of it. If youll need that money within three to five (or even 10) years. It should be in a less volatile place than stocks, such as a money market fund or CD. If youre hanging on only for emotional reasons. Going for the GoldI retired in 1975, and up to that point Id lost money in the stock market by taking the advice of brokers. I learned to use Value Line reports to pick stocks, and as a result, my stocks have soared in value. My wife and I have traveled around the world and attended six Olympic Games. R.W., Lancaster, Pa.The Fool Responds: Value Line has been around since 1931 and has both fans and foes. At Value Line.com, you can read about how stocks that are top-ranked per the Value Line system have soundly beaten the market over time. Detractors will point out that trading costs and taxes are ignored in such calculations, and that the portfolio rejiggering required to hold only top-rated stocks would generate significant commission charges and short-term capital gains hits. The flagship Value Line Fund (VLIFX), launched in 1950, has underperformed the market over the past 10 and 15 years. Still, you dont have to blindly follow Value Line you might just learn about companies from its reports and then make your own decisions. You seem to have done just that, with solid results. A Health Care GiantIf long-term sustainable wealth creation is your goal, look no further than Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) as a candidate for your portfolio. It performs strongly year in and year out, regardless of the overall economy. Johnson & Johnson features three main operating segments: medical devices and diagnostics, pharmaceutical and consumer and controls more than 275 operating companies in all. Its medical devices and diagnostics segment is the largest medical technology business in the world, and a relatively rapid grower. The consumer segment contains several world-class brands found in nearly every U.S. household think Band-Aid, Listerine, Tylenol, and the companys namesake baby care products. Its pharmaceutical business is less steady, but solid. J&J generates approximately 70 percent of its revenue from products that hold the No. 1 or No. 2 global market positions. It has delivered 29 consecutive years of adjusted earnings increases, and earlier this year increased its dividend for the 50th year in a row. (It recently yielded 3 percent.) With a fortress-like balance sheet, J&J is one of only four nonfinancial, U.S.-based companies to hold the triple-A credit rating from Standard & Poors. Add it all up, and what youre left with is a hugely profitable, remarkably consistent company. (The Motley Fools newsletters have recommended it.) I was born when two brothers bought a piz z a place in Ypsilanti, Mich., in 1960. The next year, one of them traded his stake in it for a VW Beetle. Today Im the worlds top pizza delivery company, operating in more than 70 nations and delivering more than a million pies per day. Im 95 percent franchise-owned and sport more than 10,400 stores globally. I rake in about $3.5 billion in U.S. sales annually, and nearly $4 billion internationally. In the 1990s, I introduced bread sticks and a patented hot bag to keep traveling pizzas warm. Who am I? (Answer: Dominos) IRA or MortgageQI have a lot of money in my IRA. Should I use it to pay off my mortgage? R.W., Lake City, Fla.AProbably not. With a traditional IRA, youll be taxed on the withdrawal at your ordinary income tax rate, and youll face a 10 percent early withdrawal fee, too, if youre younger than 59 In addition, the sum you withdraw will boost your taxable income, potentially moving you into a higher tax bracket, such as from 25 percent to 33 percent. Another consideration is that by wiping out your mortgage debt, youll lose the deductibility of your mortgage interest payments. Think also of your mortgage rate versus the growth rate you expect for your IRA holdings. If your mortgage rate is 5 percent, paying any of it off early essentially earns you 5 percent. If your alternative is 8 percent that you aim to earn on your IRA stocks, youre not coming out ahead. Cashing out a retirement account also means that money wont be able to grow for you over time (tax-free, in the case of a Roth IRA). Do the math for your particular situation, but consider keeping your IRA and trying to make extra payments on your mortgage when you can. Just a few each year can shave years off the loan and save you thousands in interest payments. ***QWhat does NASDAQ refer to?

The decline in inventory is a good sign. People are buying homes. Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll says, These factors contribute to increasing values in many market sectors and necessitate the use of time adjustments in appraisals to accurately measure current market value. Leading the pack are property values up to $300,000, where the median price has increased 14 percent in the past 12 months. The NABOR 2013 third quarter report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Second quarter sales statistics are presented in chart format, including these overall (single-family and condominium) findings: The overall average days on the market decreased 18 percent from 174 days in the third quarter 2012 to 143 days in the third quarter 2013.

Naples coastal area overall pending sales increased 14 percent reflecting 439 pending sales in the third quarter 2013 compared to 388 pending sales in the third quarter 2012. The NABOR report for September 2013 reflects sales statistics presented in chart format, with these overall singlefamily and condominium statistics: Overall closed sales increased 45 percent in the $2 million-plus category from 213 closed sales in the 12 months ending September 2012 to 303 closed sales in the 12 months ending September 2013. Overall inventory decreased by 20 percent from 6,195 properties in September 2012 compared to 4,964 properties in September 2013.

Condominium closed sales increased 102 percent from 49 sales to 100 sales in the 12 months ending September 2013.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB28 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 Miromar Development Corp. this month marks its 15th anniversary in south Lee County. The corporations properties include Miromar Outlets shopping mall, Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club residential community and the Miromar Design Center for home furnishings; plans are in progress for University Village, a student and faculty housing community and retail center to complement Florida Gulf Coast University. The construction phase of these projects to date has created more than 1,000 jobs and has resulted in more than 2,500 sustainable jobs at Miromar Developments commercial properties. More than 2,000 people live in Miromar Lakes, and the companys properties have generated more than $45 million in tax revenue and development fees for the county. Miromar Lakes Beach Club was honored in 2010 with the National Association of Home Builders Gold Award for Best Clubhouse, and in 2011 the community earned the NAHB Gold Award for Community of the Year. The vision for each of the corporations award-winning properties was that of company founder and CEO Margaret Antonier, who previously developed retail and commercial buildings in Canada and elsewhere in the U.S. The companys philanthropic efforts include the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, the third largest charity wine auction in the country. Held a Miromar Lakes for the fifth year, the 2013 grand tasting and live action helped raised $7.5 million for Southwest Florida Childrens Charities, including Lee Countys Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. Miromar also brought the Dancing Classrooms program to the state of Florida for the first time in 2008. The social development program for Title 1 schools is funded by Miromar Outlets and administered by the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools. We are part of this community, says Ms. Antonier. The entire Miromar team is committed to making Southwest Florida a better place to live. Our employees volunteer their time for the charitable events at Miromar and to countless other charities and causes. That is what it means for a business to be a part of a community. In addition to the aforementioned University Village, the immediate future for Miromar Development includes a final phase of Miromar Outlets, an additional 650 homes to be built in Miromar Lakes and office/medical development on property adjacent to Miromar Design Center.

A model-beautiful blond greeted me at the door and asked if I was there for the party. She pointed me toward an elevator at the back of the store, and as I made my way to the second floor I wondered which mutual friends would be at the event. But as the doors slid open and I stepped into the dazzling crowd, I quickly realized: none of them. A passing waiter offered me a glass of wine, and I must have given him a desperate look because he smiled encouragingly before disappearing into the throng. Glass in hand, I lodged myself against the back wall, practically in the corner, trying to look as nonchalant as I could. My blood pressure ratcheted up as more people arrived, each lovelier than the last, and it became obvious that no one I knew would be coming. I was thoroughly on my own. My wine almost finished, the book signing still not started, I noticed someone next to me looking equally lost. He thumbed through his phone in that desperate way people have when theyre at a party without a plus-one. I weighed the awkwardness of introducing myself against the shame of standing there alone for another half-hour. Finally, I gathered my courage. So, do you know anyone at this party? I said. The man laughed. My friend is coming, but he's running late. I started to turn away, feeling foolish, but he smiled and introduced himself. I smiled back and we started chatting. Before long we were comparing favorite books and TV shows. He had a good sense of humor and he laughed at my jokes. I actually thought, Maybe this meeting-new-people thing is not so bad. But just as we settled into an easy conversational rhythm, his plus-one showed up. The second man worked in finance; they knew each other from a networking group. Not friends, exactly, but professional acquaintances. The financier let me know that they were there to network, not meet women. Well, were going to walk around, he said. I should have known better. Maybe if I were used to the social scene, I would have had a feel for these things. Maybe I would have known what a polite brush-off looks like. But the first man had been so nice and such a good social anchor at that strained party, that when he smiled and said I should join them, I did. They stopped in an alcove and the two men grabbed more drinks. The financier talked business and it slowly dawned on me that I should have already made an exit. Before I could summon just what to say, the financier stuck out a fleshy hand. Well, he said, it was nice meeting you. Take care. I knew I had been dismissed even as I turned away. The moment stung and I silently kicked myself. Had I really thought it would be that easy? artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 Fort Myers will give people a taste of what the theme park will be like. Ruke calls the corporate launch an alpha test for the theme park. Its gonna be where the fans can help us pioneer our collective future, he says.A pared down opening partyOriginally scheduled for three days and encompassing the entire downtown Fort Myers area, the launch event has been scaled back considerably. Earlier press releases promised interactive play in scenarios such as Saving the Princess, Pirate Ship and Capturing the Alien Threat. After reviewing all the aspects of our three-day event, I came to the decision that Game Nation Celebration as planned wasnt delivering a financially appropriate event for our brand, for our future and for our long-term strategy to build your video game theme park, Ruke told followers of his website in a video released last week. Weve scaled celebration into a more intimate, yet still awe-inspiring experience. Now, Game Nation Celebration will begin at Hotel Indigos ground floor bar, with video-game competitions, industry performers, a YouTube star and a DJ who mixes dubstep with video games. From the hotel, attendees will be driven to Harborside Event Center to participate in The Starved, an immersive video-game experience. Armed with airsoft guns, theyll enter the arena and fight their way through hordes of the undead. Basically, you and your friends fight in a first-person shooter against the undead, which are our actors, Ruke explains. How is this different from paintball? Were bringing technology and theatrics to it, he says.A place for gamersRuke says the idea for the Game Nation theme park was sparked four years ago, when he and his wife, who live in a gated golf course community, were discussing where theyd like to live in the future. Were not golfers, Ruke says, noting that all the gated communities here seem to be connected to a golf course. So theres not really a community for us. Then we started to think what would we want, to imagine (what that would be). We realized, looking at our lifestyle, that we liked theme parks, video games and entertainment. So instead of a golf course, we should have a theme park, and instead of a clubhouse, we wanted a place where you could come and talk about art, technology and video games. We realized that there is nothing out there like that, and we thought, Were not the only ones that want that. We decided, if thats a place we wanted, wed have to build it ourselves. The team hes assembled to create Game Nation is filled with heavy hitters in the industry. When Ruke originally told his agent Marc Mencher, about his idea, he told Ruke he had to meet Bob. Bob turned out to be Bob Ward, the man whod taken the Universal Studios tour and turned it into a theme park. I went to Bobs house and told him my idea, Ruke says. He looked at me and said, You know, Ive been looking for you. I left Universal five years ago, looking for someone like you. He proceeded to tell me that hed started with Disney as an original Imagineer. He was hired by Universal Studios to take their best back-lot tour and turn it into a theme park. Hes the co-founder of Universal Creative (and former senior vice president of international business development for Universal Parks & Resorts.) He said, Im going to help you do this. And I said, I guess we can do this now. Mr. Ward is currently in Korea, Ruke says, helping Samsung build a theme park. The Game Nation team also includes Charles Weber (financing, negotiations, production, licensing and merchandising) and Cole Peacock (investor and governmental relations, corporate program funding and international retail development.)Secret plans years in the makingAs for Ruke himself, it seems that his entire career his entire life has been leading up to this. Hes always loved theme parks and video games. (His first video game was Pong. My granddad bought it for his house, and I stole it, he says. I never gave it back.) He started private art lessons when he was 8 and eventually graduated from the Ringling School of Art and Design. He started his own company, RUKE Illustrations, in 1993, specializing in themed and branded spaces, then expanded in 1998, renaming the company blink, which he describes as a non-traditional creative agency. Eight years later, the company was helping develop video games. Ruke created Game Nation three years ago. He calls it the worlds first experiential video-game theme park and resort (offering) total immersion and completely interactivity. But talking with him about the theme park is almost like reading a redacted letter. He refuses to say where the theme park will be built, only allowing that it will be South Florida, not Southwest Florida. We cant speak specifics, he says. We have a partnership with one of the largest landowners in Florida. The property is not on the market. Not only can he not say where the park will be, he cant say how big it will be. Or how much it will cost. He will say the world headquarters should be built within a year, but the actual theme park will take seven to 10 years to build. Though patrons who visit Game Nation will be role-playing while immersed in different worlds, a visit to the park will be nothing like the 1973 movie WestWorld or the Star Trek holodeck, where people become immersed in another setting and interact with people who arent real, Ruke says. Its tangible, its real, he adds about Game Nation. He sees Game Nation as becoming a global destination. Theres certainly a market for it. According to a 2013 report by the Entertainment Software Association, 58 percent of Americans play video games and there are an average of two gamers in each game-playing U.S. household. The report quotes Michael Gallagher, the associations president and CEO, as saying, No other sector has experienced the same explosive growth as the computer and video-game industry. Our creative publishers and talented workforce continue to accelerate advancement and pioneer new products that push boundaries and unlock entertainment experiences. Now, with Ruke, his team, and Game Nation, it looks as if its going to be a whole new playing field.

But yet, from time to time, Ill have those nightmares. You know, the ones where youre back in the classroom and about to take a test, but you dont know the subject or you cant understand the questions. Or the one where youre standing in front of the class, about to give a speech, but youre not prepared. All My Raisins in the Son has given me another scenario: being stuck in a teachers lounge with a group of teachers. The 90-minute play by John M. Twomey is this years Theatre Conspiracy New Play Contest winner. This run, through Saturday, Nov. 2, at the theater at the Alliance of the Arts in Fort Myers, is its world premiere. The story revolves around a quintet of high school teachers one of them brand new and a power-hungry, bureaucratic vice principal. Victoria (Katie Pankow) has returned to her unnamed alma mater, this time as a teacher. Shes so new, the ink on her teaching certificate has barely dried, and her fellow educators at the school think shes still a student. Mr. Twomey presents us with the typical school politics, teacher frustrations with students not wanting to learn and a vice principal arbitrarily cancelling a school play. But not much happens in All My Raisins in the Son. There are some great lines here and there, and some minor conflicts, but theres not enough drama or comedy. Instead, the playwright has put speeches into the mouths of his characters speeches about the importance of experience over theory, about the benefits of the teachers union, about the importance of, and sometimes the futility of, fighting mindless bureaucracy. And instead of giving us characters that we care about, he gives us types the types of teachers weve seen in so many other shows set in schools. Theres Felix (Ken Ruisi) the fastidious, bow-tie wearing, by-the-book guy who still lives with his mother despite his advanced age. Hes the odd one the students all make fun of. Theres Sal (Todd Fleck), the good-looking drama teacher who harbors dreams of being a professional actor. Florence (Angie Koch) is burnedout and counting the days to retirement. And kind-hearted Nora (Joann Haley) is still trying to make a difference in her students lives. The aforementioned Ms. Pankow is the brand new teacher: nave, eager, full of questions and self-doubt. Susan, a third-generation educator (I use the term loosely), storms into the teachers lounge from time to time, mostly to berate the teachers and place more obstacles in their path. (Katherine Cintron plays her with a frightening selfrighteous zeal.) But its Ms. Koch, making her stage debut, who gets the most laughs. Her cynical, acerbic Florence throws out one-liners like grenades. In fact, if she were even more over-the-top in her delivery, shed probably get even more laughs. Florence is just marking time in the classroom, taking a mental health day every month. I dont need this job to make me feel inadequate, she snaps. The sweetness to her sour is Nora. Ms. Haley does her best with the role, making you believe theres a person with heart. I dont want to make them read, I want to make them want to read, she says at one point. This school year, Nora has resorted to dressing up as characters from the classics shes teaching. The sight of her in the teachers lounge dressed as Hester Prynne in The Scarlet Letter, with a giant red A hanging around her neck, is a great idea, mostly because its so incongruous. (She later shows up in a flaming red flapper dress and past-theelbow gloves when teaching The Great Gatsby.) But even these visual jokes didnt get big laughs on opening night. This play is not consistently funny. The pacing is off, and the stagings a little strange too; surprisingly, the Foulds Theater stage now feels too big, and the people stretched out across it. The actors are better than the material; the play just doesnt seem to hold together. (And kudos to Mr. Ruisi, who stepped into his role at the last minute, with less than a week of rehearsal. He also has some funny pro-punctuation lines, including, Punctuation is my passion and One day you will regret your disdain for punctuation.) The playwright seems more focused on having his characters make speeches than actually interact with each other. The set (by Bill Taylor, who also directed) is excellent. Its a typical teachers lounge, with a soda machine, bulletin board, microwave, filing cabinet, fire extinguisher and industrial garbage can. The incidental music, between scenes, was also creative and nicely chosen. But the play itself seems preachy and predictable. It tries to do too much, introducing myriad struggles teachers face, including student apathy, parental interference, endless paperwork, nonsensical rules and clueless authoritarian administrators. All My Raisins in the Son might appeal to those who teach, who might feel comforted to see their daily struggles represented on stage. (But one audience member, in the opening nights talkback with the playwright, mistakenly seemed to feel the play was suggesting that all public school teachers are incompetent.) Unfortunately, for me, watching All My Raisins in the Son felt like sitting through detention. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com All My Raisins in the Son>> When: Through Nov. 2 >> Where: Theatre Conspiracy at the Alliance of the Arts, Fort Myers >> Cost: $20>> Info: 936-3239 or www.theatreconspiracy.org

But by weeks end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarians creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by weeks end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what youve learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: Youll find people more likely to offer information if youre discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Youre probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then its time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Librans looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and youre respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you.

NOVEMBER 7-10 @ Silverspot CinemaPROUD HOME TONAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 C11 Is it worth $10? YesIn this technological age, the role of the individual has simultaneously become homogenized and powerful. Although millions of social media users around the world keep information superhighways busy with senseless chatter and pictures of waterskiing squirrels, there are times when select individuals use the power of connectivity for (what they believe is) the greater good. Most famously, Julian Assange pioneered modern citizen journalism with his website WikiLeaks, which was founded in 2007 with the purpose of allowing anonymous whistle blowers the opportunity to unveil news leaks and other classified secrets. The Fifth Estate chronicles the first three years of WikiLeaks. Mr. Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch), a white-haired Internet activist from Australia with a clear disdain for corporate corruption, views himself as a revolutionary, a man of the people and for the people who wants to change the way we consume news. He also believes the public has the right know everything. Privacy for individuals, transparency for organizations, he virtuously tells his right-hand man, Daniel Berg (Daniel Bruhl). With the help of Mr. Berg and other volunteer support staff, WikiLeaks goes to great pains to ensure that the information revealed is truthful. Because the sources are anonymous, tips are submitted to an encrypted online platform and checked for veracity before they are published. Notable WikiLeaks revelations included footage of a military shooting in Iraq, Peruvian politician bribes and Sarah Palins not-so-flattering views on government. Most famously, in 2010 WikiLeaks, in conjunction with The Guardian in London, The New York Times and Der Spiegel in Berlin, released the Afghan War Documents, which chronicled U.S. government mistakes, deaths of civilians, Taliban attacks and more over a six-year period. Not surprisingly, the U.S. government wasnt happy about the leaks, which threatened national security and the job status of two foreign attaches (played by Laura Linney and Stanley Tucci) and a White House staffer (Anthony Mackie), among others. Mr. Bruhl, who deserves a supporting actor Oscar nomination for his work in Rush and is solid here, nicely complements Mr. Cumberbatchs eccentric Mr. Assange, whos a charismatic megalomaniac with a troubled past. Mr. Cumberbatch is good but not spectacular; after Star Trek: Into Darkness (he played Khan), his star remains on the rise, but this performance wont elevate him to A-list status. Hes close, though. The central question director Bill Condon (Kinsey) raises a question that is as much a sign of modern times as any film this year is where should the line be drawn between the publics right to know and an organizations right to secrecy? We know how Mr. Assange feel about this, self-touting his efforts to expose all misdeeds as social justice. On the flip side is the adage that individuals are smart, people are stupid, meaning a single person can exercise rational thought and act accordingly when given information, but a herd mentality can sometimes overcome a group of people and chaos ensues. Surely, it is possible that sometimes the government doesnt reveal information to the public for a good reason. How you feel about this will depend on your personal and political beliefs; whats notable is that this is one of the few films to bring that question to mind. Mr. Condons only notable misstep comes toward the end of the film, as WikiLeaks is viewed as a vanity project for Mr. Assange rather than grassroots citizen journalism. No matter: By that point, the intention of The Fifth Estate has been made clear, and the result is a message thats more dangerous than it is damning. LATEST FILMSThe Fifth Estate a s e S ( a danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> The Fifth Estate was adapted by Josh Singer (Fringe) from the books Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the Worlds Most Dangerous Website by Daniel Berg and WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assanges War on Secrecy by David Leigh and Luke Harding. Mr. Assange did not participate in the making of the lm, and given that its not exactly a attering depiction of his likeness, its doubtful that he would endorse it. CAPSULESCaptain Phillips (Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Michael Chernus) Somali pirates hijack a cargo ship helmed by Capt. Richard Phillips (Mr. Hanks). Its based on a true story, and the performances and execution make this a solid movie that might just be around come Oscar time. Rated PG-13.Gravity (George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, voice of Ed Harris) After debris destroys their ship, astronauts Kowalsky (Mr. Clooney) and Stone (Ms. Bullock) work together to survive. The visuals are stunning, and a strong lead performance from Ms. Bullock makes this one of the years best. Rated PG-13.Rush (Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl, Olivia Wilde) The rivalry between Formula One racecar drivers James Hunt (Mr. Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Mr. Bruhl) is chronicled in director Ron Howards latest. Its a captivating drama thats less about racing and more about how two men who hate each other bring out the best in one another. There are also great performances from the two leads, especially Bruhl. Rated R.

I saw you Jefferson Airplane, Surrealistic Pillow 1967DON RUHLNaplesThe misty air still hung in the trees though it was now mid-morning. He entered the Parc Monceau, turned west past the rotunda along the Boulevard de Courcelles, to the two benches by the lamppost just beyond the small lake. He made this journey often, especially on this day, today. This is where it had started for them, where they had first met, soon after the war. He took his seat on the south-facing bench, sitting quietly, as he had for all these past 15 years. Fifteen? No. Not that long since she had died: more like only 12? No, more. 13! Yes, 13 years since she had died from eating bad sushi. Really? Nobody dies from bad sushi. The very idea made him chuckle briefly. Then he felt bad, truly bad. Being amused by someones death should be left to bad sitcoms. He would doze of and on through the morning on these days, roused often by passing strollers or random street sounds. Until finally she would be there, sitting across from him, every year on this day of the past 12. The first time he had called to her, Susanne? But no response. He tried to rise and walk over but of course couldnt. She may have been there, or maybe not. But not for him. So he came back year after year, just for the glimpse. She would sit quietly looking out someplace beyond his seeing. Then, after a time she would rise, glance his way and a slight smile would cross her lips. She would turn and in two steps fade away into the mist or the sunlight or the rain or the sleet, vapor again. And he would sit and doze a while longer until startled by the sudden pop of the gas lamplight igniting. Dusk and time to find his way through the park to their old apartment on the Rue LMurat. So today he dozed through the afternoon. But she had not come. The afternoon passed and suddenly he was jarred awake by the lamplights ignition. Confused, he looked up and down the lane. Nothing. He felt suddenly very empty, very alone, staring at his shoes. Its time. He heard it, raising his head. Yes! She had come. But she was standing in front of the opposite bench. She stepped toward him, smiling, holding out her hand, palm up. He rose. Its time? He reached out for her hand, really feeling her for the first time in more than a dozen years. Yes. He wouldnt need to find his way home today. Or ever. You know the placeNICK KALVINNaplesGravel crunched with my footsteps. Damned daylight savings delayed the dawn. Our old spot lay just ahead. Falls first cold night left grass, leaves and our benches with glistening drops of dew. Annette woke me with her call. Pain of bone marrow metastases is not conducive to sleep. Here, since fifth grade, we exchanged exasperations and dilemmas boys, parents, teachers, hair and skin problems, geometry and algebra, tortures of pubescent femininity. Our senior year, Dad was transferred to West Pac. We moved to San Diego, his aircraft carriers home port. At a post-deployment party I met a young pilot, a Top Gun graduate in one of Dads Squadrons.

Annette married a handsome classmate, Frank Turner. The four of us got together twice, in the SHS transformed gym, 10th and 15th reunions. Otherwise, cards, e-mail, long calls kept us connected. Bill died providing air support for Marines in some hell hole. Two years later, I moved back to our old home in historic Savannah. Mom and Dad decided to retire in California. Before I came, Annette suggested I hire Frank, a contractor, to get the rundown wood and brick place up to code, stop the leaks and repair the chimney. About halfway through the job, she found a lump. That led to a biopsy, another biopsy, a partial and then a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. I became Franks listener while a lot of this went down. He was having a long consultation with Jack Daniels. Getting worse, he turned to me. When the day came that he cried on my shoulder, on this same bench, I took him to A.A. A Twelve Stepper, I was familiar with that path, too. Everybody at the meeting cried along with him as he told his story. Her predicament sucked strength from this former jokester and husky three-letter man. His spirit and frame paralleled her bone marrow and blood counts. When the phone rang, I knew it was her. I knew where shed want to meet. I knew what she would say... that her hair never grew since the last round of chemo... that Frank couldnt bring himself to touch her since the first operation... that Frank was having an affair... that she didnt blame him... that.... Horizontal shafts of sunlight cut through the mist. One hit the bright kerchief wrapped around her head. The gravel told me where she was almost here. She sat across from me, on the other bench, our knees almost touching. I hoped she would not tell me everything. I prayed she didnt know. My mouth was like cotton, as tears ran down her face. She wiped at them with a hand. Then, she took a deep breath, looked up into the waiting trees. Jeannie, theres something I have to tell you. PromisesJEAN HARRINGTONNaplesBe my Lily Marlene, he said. Meet me by the lamppost. Underneath the stars? That would be wonderful. Ill wait for you. No matter how long, Ill wait. She smiled, knowing he would. He always had, every morning for a year now. Their walks together had made her so happy. Eager to see him, shed start each day with his smile and firm hand clasp. Then side by side, theyd stroll through the wooded paths for an hour or more, talking about nothing, laughing about everything Her cheeks flushed. Meeting at night under the lamplight would be different, exciting. She waved good-bye. Ill be back after dark. Ill be here. But he wasnt, and her heart plummeted. The bench where he sat to wait for her was empty. No one rose from it to greet her as she approached, beaming a singular smile saved for her alone. Tears pricked at her eyes. She should have known being with him in the night, in the dark, was too good to be true. She slumped onto the bench his bench. This time shed be the one waiting, all night if she had to. In the chill, piney air, her skin erupted into goose flesh. An owl hooted in the distance, and a small creature scurried through the grass, but she wasnt afraid. Or cold. Not under the arc of lamplight that like a mini-moon cast down a perfect, dreamlike glow. She leaned back and glanced up into its warm aura. A scream ripped from her throat. He had kept his promise.

FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 KOVEL: ANTIQUESDecorative lanterns lit the way on Halloween BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELSpecial to Florida WeeklyLanterns are among the earliest Halloween collectibles and not just jack-o-lanterns. The early-1900s jacko-lantern was made of metal. Within a few years, jack-olanterns were being made of pressed paper with thin paper inserts creating see-through eyes, nose and mouth. That way, a candle inside the paper pumpkin could light a path. But it was dangerous to walk and run with a lit candle in a flammable container. By the 1920s, special Halloween lampshades were made for display in a front window. You also could buy flat-sided lanterns made in a stained-glass style with black cardboard strips and translucent orange paper. These lanterns were made in Germany and the United States until the 1940s. But beware some were reproduced in the 1990s. Old lanterns usually have round, indented candleholders on the bottom; most reproductions have flat bottoms. A very famous 12-panel lantern was made in Germany in the 1920s and sold was by Beistle, an important American company that sold (and still sells) holiday decorations. A vintage example sells for more than $500 today. One recently offered at Morphy Auctions had a presale estimate of $400 to $600. Q: My mother left me a collection of Kewpie dolls, all in good condition. Please tell me something about them. Im in my 70s now and probably will give them to my granddaughters rather than sell them. But Id like to know if theyre valuable. A: Artist Rose ONeill (1874-1944) drew the first Kewpies, little naked, winged, Cupid-like characters, for a Ladies Home Journal story that ran in 1909. Within two years, ONeills drawings were turned into 3-D designs for Kewpie dolls and figurines. They were This 8-inch-high paper lantern was made in the early 1920s. It was scheduled to sell at a Morphy auction in Denver, Pa., in early October. Presale estimate: $400-$600. e amon g th e ear li es t H a l tibles and not ju u u u u u u u st s s s s s s s s s s s s s The earl y -1900s j ac a a a a a a a a a kmad e o f m e tal. y ears, jack-obein g made ap er with e rts cre h ro ug h and h at it s to w ith a f lame r.

Actual Patients of Dr. Andrew Turk. made with small blue wings and a red heart as a mark. The dolls were an immediate success, and several companies made Kewpies and Kewpie-related products. Kewpie dolls still are being made. They can be found in bisque, celluloid, composition or hard plastic. Collectors love Kewpies and will pay hundreds, or even thousands, for rare old figurines and dolls. Q: I have a large Wagner Ware fry pan with cover. It reads Magnalite No. 4569. The pan is 10 inches wide and 3 inches deep. Im wondering what it might be worth.A: Your fry pan is a chicken fryer. Wagner Manufacturing Co. was founded in Sidney, Ohio, in 1891. After several changes in ownership, the company closed in 1999. Wagner made Magnalite, a cast aluminum cookware, from 1934 to 1999. The value of your fry pan depends on condition. The average price is under $20.Q: We own an old barber chair with a metal label that reads, Koken Companies, Manufacturers, St. Louis, U.S.A. How do you suggest we sell it? A: Ernest Koken, a German immigrant, was selling shaving mugs in St. Louis by 1874, when he was 19 years old. By the 1880s, he was selling barber chairs, and had started filing for patents on improvements to the chairs. His patents eventually included a reclining chair back and a hydraulic lift. His company, Koken Barbers Supply Co., manufactured chairs until it went bankrupt in the 1950s. (A successor, Koken Manufacturing Co., is in business today; it bought the original companys assets.) Antique Koken barber chairs in excellent shape can sell for thousands, but theyre not easy to transport. So it would be better to sell your chair locally via a trade-paper ad, Craigslist or a local shop or auction. Q: My husband and I found a very old pen-and-ink calligraphic drawing of a bird. It was stuck inside an old family Bible. The Bible dates back to the early 1800s, and the signed drawing is 7 by 8 inches. The bird in the center of the drawing is surrounded by lots of flourishes and doodads. I understand this type of drawing was done by students studying calligraphy back then. Can you give us an idea of value? A: The art of calligraphy flourished in the United States during the 19th century. Elegant penmanship was a sign of refinement and was taught in private academies and writing classes. Drawings like yours were done with quills or steel pens, and typically have repeated cursive flourishes that also could be used in fancy handwriting. If your drawing is original, it could sell for $50 into the low hundreds. Tip: Paintings displayed in a dining room often are splattered with food and sometimes even pick up food odors. Have an oil painting professionally cleaned. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer as many questions as possible through the column.

E-mail club news to Cindy Pierce at cpierce@floridaweekly.com.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. ACT NOW!Dr. T Bryant Manager

Beatrice W., Omaha, Neb.A: For starters, the talented actor/ host/dancer/singer/author will be hosting the National Dog Show Presented by Purina on Thanksgiving Day, which airs at noon for the 12th year in a row. Aside from all the cute doggy fun for the whole family that were used to with the dog show, this year sees the introduction of the Chinook, rat terrier and Portuguese podengo pequeno into the competition. John also has a childrens book coming out Oct. 31 called The Perfect Dog. Q: One of my favorite shows is Cold Justice. Will it be back for another season? Chris M., via e-mailA: TNT has ordered a second season of its hit real-life drama Cold Justice, where former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and former crime-scene investigator Yolanda McClary solve cold cases, their season-one efforts having brought many criminals to justice already. The first season, which wrapped up Oct. 22, so far has helped to bring about a guilty plea (from the Sept. 3 episode), three indictments (Sept. 10 episode) and a grand jury trial to bring about more indictments (Sept. 17 episode). Season two will have 10 more episodes and is scheduled to air in early 2014. Q: Seeing Tina Fey and Amy Poehler present at the Emmys this year made me wonder if theyd be back to host the Golden Globes? I loved them as co-hosts! Gina F., via e-mailA: Tina and Amy have signed on to host the Golden Globe Awards for the next two years. Insiders are saying the deal is a coup for the Golden Globes, but I say its a coup for the viewers, as well be treated to the comedic dynamic duo for at least two more ceremonies.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previously reviewed restaurants: A Table Apart, 4295 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 221-8540 The small but diverse menu spans the globe, embracing classic French techniques, bold Asian flavors and even a bit of Italian pasta panache while emphasizing a commitment to sustainable seafood and seasonal ingredients. The food is sophisticated but unfussy. The chorizo mejillones is simply one of the best mussel preparations Ive eaten in a couple of decades of reviewing restaurants spicy Mexican chorizo sausage, acidic white wine and tomatoes, grassy cilantro pesto and creamy queso fresco mingling with a dozen and a half plump mussels sauted until just barely cooked through. The fish of the day, Arctic char, was simply grilled and simply perfect. Meats are executed equally well, as evidenced by an expertly crusted, juicy flatiron steak topped with rich blue cheese thats smoked in-house. Order it with a side of the best fries you will ever eat in Southwest Florida theyre sprinkled with Parmesan and fresh herbs and drizzled with earthy truffle oil. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2011 Le Lafayette, 375 13th Ave. S., Naples; 403-7861 Go hungry to the Sunday brunch at this lovely French restaurant in the Third Street South neighborhood. The $44.95 price tag is quite reasonable when you consider that it entitles you to unlimited champagne and a firstrate buffet of fresh delicacies including escargot in puff pastry, quiche, New England clam chowder, beef bourguignon, shrimp Provencal and desserts including chocolate mousse, creme brulee and risotto with cinnamon or caramel sauce. Also included are cookedto-order omelettes, eggs Benedict, duck and beef as well as a crepe Suzette station. The dining room looks as if it were lifted whole out of a French inn and makes a lovely backdrop to a meal. Or dine al fresco on the broad porch surrounded by lush landscaping. Its a lovely and delicious place to while away a Sunday afternoon anytime through Mother's Day weekend. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2012 Maguro Sushi & Steak House, 895 Wiggins Pass Road, Naples; 5910003 Easily accessible but not so easy to find, Maguro is worth seeking out. Tucked into an outparcel at the corner of U.S. 41 and Wiggins Pass Road (sharing a parking lot with Bealls, Petco and other big-boxers), Maguro offers sushi and cooked entrees in one dining room and the full teppanyaki show and meal in another, both drenched in cool blue lights. The drink menu is inventive, too. I particularly liked the lychee martini. As for the food, everything we tasted from the yellowtail nigiri to the Snow White roll (shrimp tempura and sliced cucumber, seaweed and rice topped with white tuna and unsweetened coconut, finished with spicy mayo and coconut sauce) to the miso soup, vegetable tempura and the shrimp and salmon hibachi combo was carefully prepared and plated. The coconut bombe (layers of coconut cake, coconut custard and coconut icing) proved an excellent finale for two. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2013 Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, 8971 U.S. 41, Naples; 431-6206 Margaritas features succulent handpulled meats and fresh seafood tucked into tender tortillas, served with brightly flavored house-made salsas and sauces. Bracing margaritas in fruit flavors such as watermelon and pomegranate are served on the rocks or frozen, headlining a tequila-heavy cocktail list that goes on for days. The rustic charro beans, whole pintos laced with oregano and chunks of pork, are a revelation and theyre just a side dish. The taco trio (miniature corn tortillas overflowing with shredded beef, chicken and pork) is a good way to start, as is the sumptuous queso fundido, a fondue of warm, silky white cheese garnished with diced scallions, jalapenos and chorizo that may send your eyes rolling back in your head. Available with three stuffings, the tamales are exemplary. A seafood-packed Cancun burrito was big enough for two, and its ingredients all perfectly cooked. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2011 Texas Tonys BBQ Shack, 4519 Tamiami Trail East, Naples; 732-8392 A side venture of the Phelan family, owners of the locally grown Pinchers Crab Shacks, Texas Tonys is plastered with Lone Star State flags, horseshoes and longhorn antlers. Foodwise, the loaded chopped pork nachos did not showcase the meat as well as it should have, and the boom boom shrimp lost their batter in a sea of spicy cream sauce. But the spice-rubbed baby back ribs had a good, charry bark along the edges, while the meat remained incredibly tender and had the all-important pink smoke ring. A quarter chicken was super-moist, and the meat slipped easily off the bone. Its darkly varnished skin was visible evidence of the restaurants smoker, which uses orangewood a subtle alternative to the stronger hickory or oak. The star of the meal was the Texan, a huge sandwich of super-tender brisket, cole slaw, pickles, onions and barbecue sauce served on Texas toast. Full bar.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 24-30, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 CUISINE NEWSKitchen 41 offers flavorful Italian fare minus the fatThe sous vide method might be French, but Domenico Bosco has done a fine job of adapting it to the Italian fare he cooks at Kitchen 41, the new venture he opened in late August with his wife, Barbara Gallone. Literally, sous vide translates to under vacuum. It entails sealing the food in a heat-safe (BPA-free) plastic bag, submerging it in a water bath and slowly c ooking it at a low temperature. The process, which seals in the natural juices, aroma and nutrients, allows food to be cooked with little to no fat as well, which is another reason Mr. Bosco prefers it. He prepares all of his proteins this way, as well as vegetables and even his marinara sauce, which comes out a vivid red and possesses a vibrant tomato flavor. People say you can taste everything in the sauce, he says. You dont need a great palate to taste the ingredients. Customers at Kitchen 41 can pair sauces with their proteins. Choices include prunes and pine nuts; mushrooms with Madeira wine; zucchini and mint; asparagus and caramelized onion; acqua pazza (cherry tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, white wine and fish stock); or natural style, dressed with just extra virgin olive oil and Himalayan pink salt. Side veggies could be a mix of zucchini, scallions and mint; or ratatouille; diced eggplant in tomato sauce; or broccoli in garlic and extra virgin olive oil. Lunch features panini sandwiches on homemade focaccia with homemade mayonnaise (which contains about a quarter of the usual egg yolks but remains rich in flavor). Try a caprese, roast beef, chicken or ham and three cheeses. Also available: salads, soups, smoothies and homemade desserts. I can attest to the delectability of both the ricotta pie and the tiramisu, which I believe Ms. Gallo conjures up. Dine at one of the two tables in the cozy little caf or order a meal to go. Kitchen 41, at 2500 Tamiami Trail, is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. MondaySaturday. Call 263-8009 or visit www. kitchen41.Now thats Italian!Sale e Pepe, the elegant yet casual restaurant at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort, has won the Ospitalita Italiana Ristoranti Italiani nel Mondo Seal of Quality Award from the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce.

Scheduled to open in December, Avenue5 will be a high-energy, 7,000-squarefoot restaurant with seating for 240. With a broad range of classic American cuisine, the menu will focus on grilled entrees. There will also be an extravagant island bar, a private dining area and sweeping views of Fifth Avenue. Avenue5 is the next logical step in raising the standard of luxury at the Inn on Fifth, says Mr. McCabe, who owns the inn and Club Level Suites. Were replacing the iconic pub with an exciting, ultra-modern restaurant that will offer a sophisticated, trendy dining experience consistent with the look and feel of the inn and Club Level Suites. An $18 million expansion and $1.7 million renovation was recently completed at the inn, which prompted Mr. McCabe to upgrade the restaurant as well.
