This mission represents an unprecedented technological feat and allows NASA to affordably pursue the Administrations goal of visiting an asteroid by 2025. The asteroid initiative will incorporate advanced solar electric propulsion technology as a power source for spacecraft, offering greater flexibility to the spacecraft and mission planners. The mission also leverages the agencys progress on the Space Launch System rocket, Orion spacecraft and other cutting-edge technology developments.

One thing we can agree on: The past becomes mostly irrelevant. Events fade at the speed of a disappearing freight train even agonizing events. I said mostly irrelevant. Mostly forgotten, too. But not entirely. Heres a question: How could we have it so good as a nation, but choose to put ourselves through such torturous adventures, anyway? Maybe the answer is this: some of us dont really have it so good. Bang! at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, 1963. Followed by the Great Society and Civil Rights and Equal Rights and Left and Right. Bang, followed by the dead Kennedys and the dead King and the dead in Vietnam and the Grateful Dead. Bang, followed by riots and marches and sex and drugs and rock n roll. Bang, followed by Watergate and Carter and Reagan and Clinton and the Double-B Bushes. Bang, followed by war. So much friggin war, joined by so few Americans, especially after 9/11 one percent who served, in the case of Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of us started forgetting early, so early that we never even glanced out the window of our clubhouses or shopping malls, or our new cars and bigger houses. Or our career advancements and chest enhancements. We just plain forgot to notice all the commotion going on outside. Ive forgotten it now too, mostly. What I havent forgotten is this, however: In November 1963, I had fallen deeply in love with Miss Compton, my fifth grade teacher. You may not find that interesting, but you didnt know Miss Compton. She was young, she was blonde, and she had a sense of humor. Also, she was very nearly my age 25, I think. I was 10, which I considered virtually the same thing, especially when it came to Miss Compton. Unfortunately, I was too terrified ever to stand close to her. If I tried, Id hear a rushing in my ears. My vision would grow blurry. My heart would begin to beat like a Charlie Watts drum and my tongue would suddenly dry and swell, becoming a gluestuck cotton ball. Even rattlesnakes or bears or that mean old 2,000-pound bull in the pasture at the ranch who could outrun Big Daddy Lipscomb didnt worry me as much as Miss Compton. When it looked like she was going to hug me one day something I wanted to happen more than anything in the world except saving humanity while she looked on in bedazzled admiration from the sidelines I fishtailed away on some manly pretense (rescuing maidens, probably). I looked like a Chevy Corvair with a rearmounted, air-cooled engine, an engine that had been known to fall out of that American-made machine and hit the pavement, without reason or warning. This was a period in United States history when, only the next year, after LBJ had become president and my parents took me to New York City for the first time, we saw Bobby Kennedy walk right past our old Dodge with his hands in his pockets and his head down, grimly studying the filthy sidewalk like it was a future leading nowhere. But so what? Much more significantly, I would fall in love with a girl named Robin Hall (goodbye, Miss Compton, and fare thee well). I fell so deeply in love that when she went out on an evening walk with her much older, much cooler, much more experienced boyfriend, a seventh-grader named Tad, I would hide in the nearby rocks and howl like a coyote to show her that I came from the mountains, which was a lot cooler than some hotshot who came from the Connecticut suburbs. Also a lot loonier. In fairness, it was considerate of Tad to let me hang around in his fancy living room the time he talked Robin Hall into showing us her underwear. Ostensibly, she was demonstrating her ability to do handstands, which resulted in her dress riding up over her shoulders and head, as she and he knew it would. Once I had seen Robin Halls underwear Im almost certain they were white, by the way, even though I was too embarrassed to do more than steal a single swift glance I felt I had become an adult (if indeed there had ever been any question). So by then I could handle the fact that my president had been shot the previous fall, and Id seen Miss Comptons face turn alabaster white and my dad actually cry. In fact, I could handle everything that would follow the underwear incident for the next half century. In the vernacular of Muddy Waters, I had suddenly become a man: thats spelled M-A child N. That represent MAN. No B-O child Y. That mean Mannish Boy! But mannish boy or not, I was still terrified to get within 10 feet of Robin Hall, just as I had been afraid to get near Miss Compton. It was a character flaw, all right, but I thought of it this way: Adults in my experience had demonstrated some odd and completely inexplicable behaviors, so I was allowed one or two of my own. Or five or 10 of my own. Then time moved on, and so did I, and so did Robin Hall. And so did all those others who helped teach me to be a man, thats M-A child N, mannish boy. But isnt that life in America? Isnt that the product that says without apology, hesitation or any retreat, ever Made in the U.S.A.? You bet it is. Which brings us to the next 50 years, starting right now. Theres nothing else to do but do it. So what do you say? And when were through well by God stamp it this way, for better or worse: Made in the U.S.A. e w m O e n rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

GUEST COMMENTARYwww.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 DAS Advisory Board is worth keeping BY STEPHEN WRIGHTSpecial to Florida WeeklyAt just after 6 p.m. Nov. 12, the Collier County Commission voted unanimously to keep Collier Countys Domestic Animal Services Advisory Board alive. This was great news to the eight or so DAS Advisory Board supporters who were in commission chambers and ready to speak up for keeping the board. Some had been there since 9 a.m. Commissioners were looking to eliminate any of the countys 51 advisory boards that were inactive, redundant or had served their purpose and not required by state statue. Somehow, the DAS Advisory Board got on the termination list along with eight other boards. But far from being an inactive group, the DAS Advisory Board has met regularly, eight to 10 times a year for almost 10 years, at DAS headquarters on Davis Boulevard. The meetings usually last for 90 minutes to two hours or more on the third Tuesday of each month. Agenda items include reports on DAS activities and citizen concerns. Anywhere from two to 60 members of the public attend these meetings; the average is about seven to 10. Created in 2004 by county ordinance, the seven-member advisory board is tasked with taking public input and working with DAS staff to recommend services and programs to the Collier County Commission for approval. The advisory board has done just that and more. Thanks to public input, this citizen advisory board has worked with DAS to develop a Trap-Neuter-Return program for feral and free-roaming cats and an anti-tethering ordinance so dogs arent left outside on chains. The board has influenced county staff to modify the DAS mission statement to include adoption as part of its official duties. And after two years of hard work by county staff and advisory board members, they have made significant revisions to the countys animal ordinance. Another task of the advisory board is to analyze and review construction and capital improvements to DAS facilities, both at the Davis Boulevard facility and the Immokalee shelter. The advisory board is cost effective, too, with members volunteering their time and energies to this service. Thats free. There is, however, a cost to the meetings (utilities and an hourly staff person to watch the front desk and a stenographerparliamentarian to take meeting notes and advise on meeting protocol). Other county staff in attendance are salaried. But this slight expense is well worth the cost. Each meeting is a form of community outreach and education that brings people into the public animal shelter. Much information flows about DAS operations, trends and actual situations animal control officers deal with each day. Ideas are expressed and comments invited. Perhaps no other county agency receives this much public scrutiny and input. The meetings also serve as a forum for the public, who either communicate their concerns to board members who then bring up the issue at meetings, or who can address the board in person during the public comment section of each meeting. For some, the Roberts Rules of Order that guide the meetings might seem formal, rigid and intimidating. But the rules do allow everyone a chance to voice their opinion and at the same time prevent one or a few people from monopolizing and disrupting the forum. Despite the rules of order, meetings can sometimes be very contentious because of the publics compassion for animals and their welfare. But thats not a bad thing. Points of contention need to be discussed. And thats one of the unwritten functions of the DAS Advisory Board: to act as a sort of pressure va lve, allowing some members of the public to let off a little steam. Venting eventually brings everyone to an understanding of the problem and clears the way for them to seek a reasonable solution. Thats a good thing that will now continue, thanks to the wisdom of Collier County Commission. A longtime friend of animals, Stephen Wright has attended almost every Collier County DAS Advisory Board meeting since 2004.

Thousands of people are dead, hundreds of thousands are stranded with almost no food or water, and millions have been impacted. The struggle to survive competes with the race to bury the dead, treat the wounded and suffer through the onslaught of tropical storms in Haiyans wake. In seeming synchrony, halfway around the world, thousands of negotiators, scientists, politicians and journalists are gathering for the annual United Nations Climate Change summit, held this year in Warsaw, Poland. The changing seas that this week have whipped the Philippines demand a sea change in the worldwide response to global warming. As COP 19 opened in Warsaw the 19th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol one courageous climate negotiator took center stage, demanding action on climate change. What my country is going through as a result of this extreme climate event is madness. The climate crisis is madness, said Naderev Yeb Sano, representing the typhoon-ravaged Philippines, as the summit opened. We can stop this madness right here in Warsaw. This was not his first appeal to the U.N. body. Last year, when the summit was in Doha, Qatar, and not long after Typhoon Bopha killed 1,100 people in the Philippines, Sano implored the gathered negotiators, holding back tears: The outcome of our work is not about what our political masters want. It is about what is demanded of us by 7 billion people. I appeal to all: Please, no more delays, no more excuses. Please, let Doha be remembered as the place where we found the political will to turn things around. Doha did not turn things around. Report after report reinforces the science: Catastrophic climate change is accelerating. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the association of more than 1,800 scientists that is leading the global study of climate change, and which shared the Nobel Peace Prize with former Vice President Al Gore in 2007, recently released its fifth assessment report. With increasing certainty, the IPCC reports, the climate is changing, and humans are the cause. Jeff Masters is a meteorologist and founder of the popular weather website Weather Underground. Unlike most U.S.-based television weather forecasters, who rarely link extreme weather events to climate change, Masters regularly makes the connection. He said on Democracy Now! news hour, The proportion of these sorts of high-end Category 5 storms has increased... when we do get them theres a higher proportion of them coming in at these super-high intensities. Masters and the IPCC point out that no individual weather event can be directly attributed to climate change, but that the frequency and intensity of the storms will increase. While the science is dry and peerreviewed, the reality on the ground is grim and deadly. Typhoon Haiyan (which is called Yolanda in the Philippines) is the latest, epic example. Superstorm Sandy, one year ago, hit New Jersey and New York City, shutting down one of the largest cities on the planet. Its too soon to call the U.N. climate summit in Warsaw a failure. Earnest negotiators have gathered in Poland, alongside activists both inside the National Stadium, where the conference is being held, and outside, in the streets. Activists from Greenpeace called attention to Polands intense dependence on coal-fueled power plants by projecting messages onto the huge smokestacks stating Climate Change Starts Here. At the same time, 28 other Greenpeace activists face seven years in prison in Russia for protesting the first exploratory oil-drilling rig in the Arctic. The two journalists covering them face the same charges. Many consider Warsaw just a steppingstone to the climate summit planned for Paris in 2015, conceding that immediate action is not possible. Why? At the climate summit in 2011, in Durban, South Africa, a representative of the youth delegation addressed the closing plenary, expressing frustration with the slow progress. Anjali Appadurai said: Youve been negotiating all my life. ... Long-term thinking is not radical. Whats radical is to completely alter the planets climate, to betray the future of my generation, and to condemn millions to death by climate change. Whats radical is to write off the fact that change is within our reach. Yeb Sano is not giving up, either on his family, many of whom were directly hit by Typhoon Haiyan, or on the process. As he closed his statement at the opening session in Warsaw this week, he announced, I will now commence a voluntary fasting for the climate... during this COP, until a meaningful outc ome is in sight.

Limited Seating. Distinctlnorris There are many signs of abundance and great wealth on the Paradise Coast. Not as evident are the problems facing many of our kids. Sixty-three percent of school-aged children in Collier County live at or below the poverty line thats more than 27,000 of the 44,000 students in our schools. The Boys & Girls Club of Collier County is dedicated to helping young people, especially those in need, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, caring citizens. Under the leadership of Theresa Shaw, president and CEO, the club serves nearly 3,000 young people ages 6-18 with daily afterschool and summer enrichment programs. While relatively new to the Paradise Coast, this is Ms. Shaws 10th year working with Boys and Girls Clubs and her 35th year of working and advocating for children and families. She moved here from Rocky Mount, N.C. Naples makes me feel like my work has just begun, she says. Ms. Shaw was born in Norfolk, Va., and grew up in the Shenandoah Valley. In school, her favorite subjects were history, math and science; her extracurricular activities included leadership clubs, chorus, cheerleading and basketball. She aspired to become a teacher and was a local member and eventually the president of the local Future Teachers of America. She went on to become president of the State Future Teachers of America. After earning a bachelors degree in special education from Norfolk State University, she taught for 15 years in elementary and middle schools in North Carolina and Wisconsin. She was named Teacher of the Year in two school systems and received the North Carolina Terry Sanford Award for creativity in education. She also worked for many years with Down East Partnership for Children, a North Carolina state-funded organization that awarded grants to community agencies working to improve day care centers. My happiness is working to make a difference for children, she says. I truly believe that my work with children is a small part of my purpose on earth. It is my passion. Her greatest desire is to work collectively with other nonprofits in order to have a greater impact on the community.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 When the Kennedys bought their home in Palm Beach they were not as prominent a family as the Vanderbilts or the Phippses. They were not generations-long Republicans with centuryold money. They were Democrats. They were Catholics. They were nouveau riche. They, by no means, made Palm Beach, but they did add a little glimmer to the scene. Sitting in his West Palm Beach home, his Dalmatian Penny at his feet, The Breakers historian Jim Ponce recalls the coveted parties of midcentury Palm Beach when homes had ballrooms and orchestras were hired to serenade the wealthy at play. Banker H. Loy Anderson threw one such party of lore, with ex-president Herbert Hoover and president-elect John F. Kennedy in attendance. You see, thats the kind of thing that happens in Palm Beach, Mr. Ponce says. Oh, Im sure that was a sizeable party, cause after all, Mr. Ponce giggles under his words, down the line, people would say, You didnt invite me? When an ex-president and a president were both attending? They might be staunch Republicans, but if they were invited to H. Loy Andersons home for a party, and I dont even know if he was a Democrat, they would have, believe me, they would have been there for the party. Mr. Ponce moved to Palm Beach in 1951. Living on the island, he remembers the Kennedy boys coming home for spring break and drawing a small gallery of spectators as they played touch football on the lawn that had once marked the site of Col. Edward R. Bradleys gambling casino. He remembers watching the young president announce his cabinet appointees on TV from the ocean lawn of the Kennedy home on North Ocean Boulevard. And he remembers sort of a game arising among other Palm Beach Catholics President Kennedy was a good Catholic, he would always go to mass, but he would mix it up, sometimes going to Saint Anns, other times going to Saint Edwards, inciting other Catholics to go to two or three masses, trying to catch a glimpse, Which mass will the president go to today? Closing his eyes, Mr. Ponce seems to scan the back of his eyelids like microfiche searching for more memories. On one occasion, he laughs, I was there. He came into the lobby (of the Palm Beach Towers hotel) with the press corps. They told him to call the White House immediately, we didnt have all this communication in the car in those days, and of course, Jacqueline had gone into labor, and so he says, Back to the plane! When the president would fly into Palm Beach International Airport, his convertible would be waiting for him. Weather pending, he always drove to and from the airport in an open car. I remember so well, Mr. Ponce says, I was working at The Colony, preparing for the opening of the hotel, They announced that he was leaving his home for the airport. People would run down, cause he would always go down the oceanfront and take South Ocean Boulevard, because the private planes would be housed on the south side of the airport There was several of us that went down knowing that he would pass that way, waving to people and everyone waving to him, and of course, that was the last time he could ever, well, its the last time a president could ride in an open convertible.

Jim Ponce, The Breakers historian S THE LIFE OF JFK DRIFTS FURTHER AND FURTHER INTO THE DISTANCE, IT does not fade. Nov. 22 marks the anniversary of his assassination. But its almost as if the span of 50 years has brought his life more sharply into view. Those who had any brush with the man or his family want to polish the moment, shine it up and reawaken the feel of the era that rang of rebirth and resurgence. Florida had the geographical luck of being close to the Kennedys.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 life for her exhibit Tropical Camelot: JFK in Palm Beach to The chief curator of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County, Ms. Murray had to pick and choose the stories she wanted to try to tell. The Society has close to 2 million photographs in its archive. Sitting in her office, Ms. Murray flips through some of the photographs she found, but could not use. Isnt that a great image? she says, handing over a picture of Jackie leaning over John, who lies on a stretcher, post back surgery. The picture was snapped at the airport, as he flew down to Palm Beach to convalesce, but Ms. Murray did not use it because it was taken in the mid-s, before his presidency. Oh, for Gods sake. I wish I had seen this one, she says, looking at an image of all the furniture the Kennedys carried with them on their travels, including the rocking chair John liked to sit in because it was the most forgiving on his back. This is a funny one, she says, grinning at a picture of the Democrat on Palm Beach streets, side-by-side with a donkey. That would have been a good one to put in mine (exhibit). Dang it, were at print. Ms. Murrays office spills over with books, binders and files, all marked with stick-it tabs and filled with clippings, like browning breadcrumbs of the past. Her coffee mug reads: I cant even clean my desk because I get distracted by the cool stuff I find. Pondering the impact the Kennedys may have left on Palm Beach, Ms. Murray says Jackie and John brought glamour, but she must admit, Palm Beach was already a glamorous place. One would like to think that it was an enchanting time, and for some people, it was, but again, one of those things Ive heard and cant verify was that he was not popular among the Palm Beach Republicans, she says. And you know, the people who live in Palm Beach dont appreciate the paparazzi that was before it got that moniker but they dont appreciate that kind of hoopla. They want hoopla on their own terms, for doing good works, not just for Top: The last photo taken of President Kennedy in Palm Beach. Middle: President elect John F.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 NEWS A11 existing. Ms. Murray maintains that more than Palm Beach society wants photographs, they want private life. Researching her exhibit, she says people told her, Ive got stories, but I cant tell you, for in Palm Beach, discretion is the order of the day. Stories are off-the-record. Sticking to the timeline, she says Joe and Rose Kennedy bought their Palm Beach home in 1933. Jack would have been a teenager then. The society has pictures of him at the beach, on tennis courts or playing golf. After the 1960 election, he came down to Palm Beach to create his cabinet and write his inauguration speech. Im sure thats the kind of speech that you write up until youre walking down the aisle, Ms. Murrays says with a hearty laugh. Well, he started it here. Throughout the rest of his presidency, Kennedy and his family came in and out of town, especially during the holiday season, celebrating Christmas, celebrating Easter. Oftentimes, they stayed in other houses on the island. Once you become president with that full presidential detail, its kind of hard to camp out at moms place, Ms. Murray says. Moving from a jovial to a more somber tone, she adds, And he did spend the last full weekend of his life here, before he went on that tour and was killed in Dallas. Cynthia Ray never intended to write about the Kennedys. Working as Rose Kennedys secretary, she felt as though she had been entrusted with the care of their personal lives. But after reading so many exposes, she felt the sensational stories of the family needed context, needed balance. So she started writing her memoir of recollections. Mrs. Ray has yet to find a publisher. Sitting in her West Palm Beach living room, she reads aloud from her manuscript. Looking into her blue eyes, you feel as though you are dipping into wells of remembrance. She shares stories of swimming in the ocean with Rose, stories of Caroline and her ponies, stories of John John and puppy dogs. Mrs. Ray never met JFK. She started working for his mother within less than a month of his assassination. One indelible day, Mrs. Ray walked in on a tender moment. Rose was standing in her bedroom, looking out her window, looking out at the palm trees, Mrs. Ray remembers. She said thats where John wrote his Profiles in Courage, I used to see him there, out on the lawn of the familys Palm Beach home, writing in the shade of the palm trees. Mrs. Ray says whenever Mrs. Kennedy found herself talking about her son she would tend to change the subject. She says Mrs. Kennedy had to shape her own interpretations of life and not ponder long, so she could live with it. For all the Kennedy stories that are guarded or not spoken, it seems other Kennedy stories are passed along like a game of telephone, exponentially exaggerated and embellished. On the opening night of Tropical Camelot, it was rumored that a man who had worked for the president, a man who stood in the White House when they carried in the body, would be in attendance at the Historical Societys exhibit. Ken Peltzie was that man. He worked for the Office of Management and Budget, then called the Bureau of the Budget, but he was not present when the presidents body was transported. Nor did he ever have any direct contact with the president, but he does have stories of colleagues that stuck with him. When you worked in the Office of Management and Budget, you worked long hours. I lived about four blocks away, and so when the day was done, Id usually take my bundle of things to work on that were not classified and take them home, and after dinner, I would work on them, says Mr. Peltzie, who lives in Delray. But people who lived out in the suburbs, which were a lot, would work in the office, and so the lights would be on, and I had friends who would say, You know what happened last night? Sitting here working and the president walked in, sat down on my desk and said: Whatcha doin? Mr. Peltzie surmises that the president was home alone, saw the lights on in the executive office, which sits just to the west of the White House, and meandered on in. There was this excitement about Kennedy and that whole flavor. It just created an anticipation that gosh, youre really going to be able to do something interesting and useful. A lot of what you did actually was pretty mundane, but it was still exciting, Mr. Peltzie says. I think it lost excitement when Mr. Johnson came in He was not, he didnt have the same kind of life. Politically, wed just get things done. And well figure out how to maneuver people around to do things. And it wasnt a matter of were doing things because theyre important to be done, were doing things because we can do them. Mr. Peltzie remembers that November day, hearing something had happened. He ran down to the press room and read the news flash on the AP ticker: The president has been assassinated. He walked back up to his office, which overlooked the White House, looked out the window and saw someone walking across the roof, lowering the flag to half-mast. President Kennedy addresses the nation on June 11, 1963, to support civil rights for all Americans. HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF PALM BEACH COUNTYJackie Kennedy leans over JFK, post back surgery. He flew to Palm Beach to recover. ,g h a s a pe h e pr d o s a M th e a l o th e sit s W h d e HISTORICAL SOCIETY OFPALMBEACH JackiK Robert Groden climbed out of his friends big Cadillac parked behind the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, checked his pockets, climbed back in, then reemerged with his briefcase. It was a black briefcase, like a black box, loaded with theories he would say evidence and proof that the nations 35th president was killed by conspirators who have never been identified. Almost 100 people had come to hear him present his case, and many of them had already decided: the CIA. The Mafia. Lyndon Johnson. Fidel Castro. Maybe even the Russians. Or maybe somebody else had directed the killing, and deployed more than one shooter. What we know for sure is this: On Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was shot while riding in an open limousine through Dealey Plaza in Dallas. That sunny day happened to be Mr. Grodens 18th birthday, and as his 68th birthday rapidly drew near, he had come to set the record straight, or at least place it under suspicion: The official version of events describing that long-ago tragedy in Dallas is bunk. He has made his career banking on conspiracy at times a lucrative career fueled by best-selling books and several 15-minute waltzes with fame. The other theory, that of the famous Warren Commission Report, concludes that one man, Lee Harvey Oswald, fired three bullets from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, less than 100 yards behind the president as he rode past. According to this version, one of those bullets went through Kennedy and tore up Texas Gov. John Connelly, sitting in the front seat. Mr. Groden is the man who presented the famous 8mm movie of Kennedys killing, filmed inadvertently by Dallas clothing-store owner Abraham Zapruder, to the American public on the Good Night America show, hosted by Geraldo Rivera, in 1975. He was also the primary consultant to Oliver Stones 1991 movie, JFK. And he is the author of more than one New York Times best-selling book on the subject, with his newest book coming out this month, he says. In an hour-long delivery, Mr. Groden uses dead-Kennedy pictures and diagrams. He talks forensics and rifle characteristics. He says Lee Harvey Oswald, a former Marine turned Communist, was really a low-level CIA spy who had been trained at the Farm in Virginia, the CIAs special school, before visiting the Soviet Union implying that somebody at the CIA directed the killing. He points out that President Kennedy felt the CIA was too big for its britches and planned a reduction in its force in 1963. Thus, he suggests, a small cabal of CIA leaders is the most likely force behind the assassination. At this point in time, most agree that the mystery remains a mystery. And some, who are generally considered the most level headed and unimpeachable, arent counting out the notion that more than one gunman was involved. Doctors who tried to save President Kennedy reported that there was an entrance wound in the front of his neck which would mean he was shot by somebody other than Mr. Oswald. Mr. Groden has pictures of the frontal neck wound, beneath the still handsome, but vacant, open-eyed stare of a dead president. The government version is that only three or four shots were fired by Oswald from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository behind President Kennedy as he rode in the limo. One of them killed President Kennedy and deflected into Gov. Connelly. Nonsense, says Mr. Groden. As many as nine and possibly 15 shots were fired from more than one place. As he presents his case, Mr. Groden presents vivid slide images that seem unusually ominous: four men in a room, FBI agents, who appear conspiratorial just in the way they stand. A grinning mug of Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson standing behind President Kennedy in Dallas just before the motorcade left the airport, or winking at another official over the head of the shocked, pink-suited Mrs. Kennedy on Air Force One just after her husband had been killed and Mr. Johnson was about to be sworn in as president. Would you buy a used car from this man? Mr. Groden quietly asks the crowd, leaning into his microphone and pausing as people look for clues in the creases of Johnsons big smile. I wouldnt. It all comes down to this, Mr. Groden says: There were at least two shooters the evidence shows that. Who was responsible? We cant be certain. But we can be certain that the question of President Kennedys death still haunts Americans, and its still important to those who remember. The importance is, if there were room on Mount Rushmore, he would be there, explains FGCU Public Affairs Professor Peter Bergerson. The iconic nature of Kennedy has grown in the 50 years since hes been assassinated the analogy would be to Lincoln. Like Lincoln, he was a transformational president. Its high praise, and it stems in Professor Bergersons mind from JFKs ability to move in different directions taking us out of the war and the Eisenhower years and into new territory. As for the assassination itself, Professor Bergerson, who was 20 at the time and a political science student at Indiana State University, believes it probably happened the way they say it happened: Mr. Oswald acted alone. But whether these other theories are true or not, people want to believe them, Mr. Bergerson adds. They want to believe them because they want an answer to the mystery they want to bring closure in their own minds.

UNDERCOVER HISTORIANSqueezing out the history of oranges in the Sunshine StateAfter drinking my glass of orangejuice one recent morning, it dawned on me that I didnt really know how long oranges have been around here in the Sunshine State. So I did some research to uncover the history of the citrus fruit for which we are so famous. Even though this delectable fruit had been grown around the world for centuries, it was during the Middle Ages that it became highly prized in Europe. The first oranges in Florida were brought here in the mid-1500s by Spanish explorers. Several sources credited Christopher Columbus for planting the first orange seeds in the settlement of St. Augustine around the year 1493. It took nearly 400 before the state had enough citrus to turn it into a profitable business. Floridas soil and its hot, sunny weather combine to create ideal growing conditions that result in our oranges being the juiciest, biggest and most delicious grown in the U.S. My research showed that the first cultivated trees were planted in the early 1800s around Ocala. Orange and grapefruit trees today cover more than half a million acres in Florida, spreading south to the edges of the Everglades and east and west from the Orlando area. While citrus trees can be found throughout Florida, the major commercial production areas are in the southern part of the state. It is incredible to think that this seed, actually a berry, originally grown to grace imperial gardens of ancient Oriental kings, today provides countless opportunities of commerce in what is a gigantic industry. A 2011 listing at www.stateofflorida. com reports that Florida produces about 67 percent of the oranges in the U.S. and accounts for about 40 percent of the worlds orange juice supply. Since the only means, originally, of transporting oranges was by water, most of the commercial production of citrus was confined to the coastal areas for the first 300 years after its introduction. After being loaded on horse-drawn wagons, oranges were carried by barge to the St. Johns River and reloaded onto steamboats. As the boats sailing up the Atlantic coast, they delivered oranges along the way and as far north as New York, where fresh Florida oranges were a luxury. When railroads opened up Floridas interiors, the citrus boom began. Freight trains could move crates of the fruit in a matter of days. It was these freight trains that shifted the concentration of citrus to the warmer southern areas of the state, following the Great Freeze of 1895 that nearly wiped out all of Florida citrus. There are many types of oranges, and the taste and aroma of each differ by type, season, country and state. The ones that you can reach and pick from the ground called ground fruit are not as sweet as the fruit that grows high on the tree. And oranges grown on the south side of a tree are sweeter than all the others. Citrus ripens on the tree and is hand picked just before going to market. Trees must be at least three years old in order for their fruit to be harvested, and the best fruit comes from trees that are at least 10 years old. The Florida Valencia orange, harvested in late March, has emerged as the most universal orange of the century. It is more widely and extensively planted than any other orange. Temple oranges, very juicy, are named after William Chase Temple, the former manager of the Florida Citrus Exchange. The navel orange is the best eating fruit. Various types of tangelos are deep to red-orange in color and sweet and juicy with few seeds. Tangerines are nearly seedless, too. Both the Hamlin and pineapple orange are better for juicing rather than eating. Now, orange you glad you read this? Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981.

So many people, said assistant manager Emily Noon, dont have a significant other in their lives and just need to be held (including, she said, the elderly and hospice patients, who are part of the target clientele). The citys delay was, a spokesman said, to assure that Snuggle House had protocols for dealing with risky situations in which a customer refuses to take no sex for an answer. (Snuggle House has prominent surveillance cameras and panic buttons f or the staff.) Oh, dear Among the underreported catastrophes caused by Hurricane Sandy in the New York-New Jersey area in October 2012 was the tragedy that befell the 27,000-case WineCare storage cellar in Manhattan. Though it claimed to have lost only about 5 percent of its inventory when waters from the Hudson River flooded its supposedly secure warehouse, that number apparently did not count the many preserved bottles whose labels washed off, dramatically reducing the value of customers toweringly priced grape and forcing WineCare into bankruptcy court, according to a New York Times report in July. The California genetic testing company 23andMe was recently awarded a patent for a computer program that lets parents, by running probabilities through the known relevant cell and DNA variables (of over 240 conditions and traits), predict their perfect baby. Of course, the program can provide only the percentage likelihoods, and a company spokeswoman, anticipating a backlash against the concept of designer babies, rejected the idea that 23andMe would work with fertility clinics. In July, just days after the one-year anniversary of the spree killing of 12 people at the Century 16 Theaters in Aurora, Colo., Cassidy Delavergne was arrested after he entered the NCG Trillium theaters in Grand Blanc Township, Mich., wearing full body armor and carrying a loaded gun and a fake CIA badge (and alarming some but not all bystanders). Mr. Delavergne explained that he wore the equipment only because he did not want to leave it in his car while he watched the movie and thought the badge might alleviate other patrons fears. Update: Person-to-person fecal transplants have been mentioned here several times for the bizarre but therapeutic idea that gastrointestinal illness results from an imbalance between healthy and unhealthy gut bacteria and that a transplant of healthier antigens may relieve the sickness. But what happens if no compatible donor is available? Emma Allen-Vercoe and her team at Canadas University of Guelph are thus creating artificial gut bacteria (robogut) under demanding control conditions, for implantation. (Ms. AllenVercoe grumbled to Popular Science in August that the most disagreeable part of the job is disposing of excess sludge the process for which causes the whole building to smell like poop.) A Brazilian minor-league soccer match in September ended in a 2-2 tie only because, with minutes left, the trainer for one team stepped to the goal and cleared two quick tie-breaking shots that his players could not have reached in time. It was our only chance, he said later. (The referee allowed play to continue.) Bringing her basketball skills to an October five-on-five contest in Thimphu, the queen of Bhutan, 23, scored 34 points with 3 rebounds and 4 assists, and talked up basketballs imminent rise in the Asian kingdom to a New York Times reporter. The queen said she, and the king, play almost every day. Super protests Artist David Cerny, fed up with the collapse of the governing parties in the Czech Republic, launched a barge on the River Vitava in Prague in October, holding a gigantic purple hand with middle finger extended, aimed at Prague Castle (the office of President Milos Zeman). (2) In a November protest against Russias police state, artist Pyotr Pavlensky, in front of horrified tourists at Moscows Red Square, nailed the skin of his scrotum into cobblestones near Lenins Mausoleum. Pavlensky, who was arrested, earlier called his stunt a metaphor for the apathy, political indifference and fatalism of contemporary Russian society. Cliches come to life The Azerbaijani governments official vote totals for the Oct. 8 elections (showing President Aliyev winning, as expected, with 72.76 percent of the votes), was mistakenly released to the public on Oct. 7. (Officials blamed a computer app bug.) Terry Jenkins, 25, was arrested for domestic battery in Myrtle Beach, S.C., in September after, according to the police report, he had asked his girlfriend and her female cousin for a bedroom menage a trois. He then allegedly became enraged when the women paid more attention to each other than to him. Least-competent criminals Steven Campbell, 51, entering a courthouse in Kelso, Wash., in November for a hearing on his previous arrest for possession of methamphetamine, apparently failed to consider that he would be searched and was forced to hand over to courthouse screeners a 3-inch methamphetamine pipe with suspected meth residue on it. Andrew Laviguer, 57, was captured and accused of robbing several banks in Oregon and Washington in September, including the Wells Fargo branch in Portland, Ore., that ended the spree (and on whose counter he had mistakenly left his car keys when he fled).

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 A23 Esteemed Woods Hole marine scientist addresses Collier high school students SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Hundreds of budding scientists in Collier County recently had the opportunity to learn from one of the worlds most accomplished marine scientists, David Gallo from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, when he visited Golden Gate High School. For more than 25 years, Mr. Gallo has been at the forefront of ocean exploration and related technologies. He visited the marine science classes at GGHS and conducted two videoconferences so that more than 300 marine science students and teachers could participate. These students had a most unique experience, said Susan McManus, president of The Education FoundationChampions For Learning. There arent many communities in the country that leverage private and public resources in ways to benefit students and the community as a whole the way Collier County does. Mrs. McManus thanked the Naples Consortium of SWFL49ers and the World Presidents Organization helping involve Dr. Gallo with local schools. His visit was made available in conjunction with a fall meeting that was hosted by the Naples contingent of SWFL49ers and WPO. Both organizations include national and international company presidents and chief executive officers. The SWFL49ers strive to create a better community through mentoring, philanthropy and service, Chairman Russell G. Smith II explained. He invited Mr. Gallo to Naples for the fall meeting and felt the organizations should share this opportunity to learn the deep secrets of the sea with local students. The importance of bringing these STEM experiences to students to connect what they are learning with the research and careers of scientists like Mr. Gallo is significant for the future growth of our students, said Curt Witthoff, Collier County Public Schools coordinator of K-12 science and environmental education.

Ascent simulations are precise rehearsals of the steps a spacecrafts crew will be responsible for including things that could go wrong during their climb into space. It will take about eight minutes for Orion to get from the launch pad at Kennedy Space Center to the altitude where the rockets main engines will cut off, the milestone that marks the spacecrafts arrival in space. In that time, if everything goes as planned, the commander and pilot will have few actions to perform; if anything goes wrong, that quickly changes, and the crew must be able to quickly access all the relevant procedures and displays they need. The Orion team has been working to develop ideas on how to make that possible, and has developed a working prototype thats been installed in a lifesized Orion mockup at Johnson Space Center. Earlier this year, NASA announced a Grand Challenge focused on finding all asteroid threats to human populations and knowing what to do about them. The challenge is a large-scale effort that will use multi-disciplinary collaborations and a variety of partnerships with other government agencies, international partners, industry, academia, and citizen scientists. It complements the mission to redirect an asteroid and send humans to study it. NASA already is working to find asteroids that might be a threat to our planet, and while we have found 95 percent of the large asteroids near the Earths orbit, we need to find all those that might be a threat to Earth, said NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver. This Grand Challenge is focused on detecting and characterizing asteroids and learning how to deal with potential threats. We will also harness public engagement, open innovation and citizen science to help solve this global problem. NASA also invited industry and potential partners to offer ideas on accomplishing NASAs goal to locate, redirect, and explore an asteroid, as well as find and plan for asteroid threats. The responses will be discussed during a public workshop taking place this week in Houston. Topics include how best to identify, capture and relocate a near-Earth asteroid for closer study, how to respond to asteroid threats, as well as partnership, crowdsourcing and citizen science ideas. Workshop results will be considered for future planning as NASA refines the details of its mission.

Bar eld Dr. Bald Eagle Drive HEALTHY LIVINGAchievements reflect the ability to adapt to changeTwo prestigious awards and two important meetings have marked recent achievements at NCH. First, the awards. Truven Health Analytics has named us among its 2014 Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals based on inpatient and extended o utcomes, clinical process, efficiency and cost for the two most common cardiovascular conditions (heart attacks and heart failure) and the most common cardiovascular interventions (cardiac catheterizations and heart bypass surgery). Truven uses only public data sources and peer-reviewed methodologies. The National Research Corp. recognized us as one of 17 of approximately 305 hospitals in Florida to receive its 2013-14 Consumers Choice award. Winners are determined by consumer perceptions on multiple quality and image ratings collected in the NRC market insights survey. No other study measures hospital performance and preferences and contains more consumer responses than this annual analysis. Second, the meetings: U.S. News & World Report hosted 600 professionals for Hospital of Tomorrow, a groundbreaking summit at which scores of top hospital executives, medical experts and other health-care visionaries addressed the industrys most critical challenges. Presenters Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention addressed the need for health-care systems to reduce the use of overused antibiotics, to address alcohol abuse and unrecognized HIV/AIDS, to make the workplace baby friendly and to address the epidemic of opiate abuse. Also at the summit, Dr. Patrick Conway, chief medical officer of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, shared that the immediate future for health care must be patient-cent ered and outcomesdriven, with sustainable coordinated care and no more fee-for-service. HealthLeaders convened 40 healthcare system CEOs from around the nation for a frank discussion about the risky new payer universe, the big clinical shift, evolving cost-reduction strategies and other topics of mutual interest and concern. Most systems in attendance were bigger than NCH. We all were on various stations of the journey from volume to value, with some of the California and Texas systems way out front and realizing success. We need to learn from them and move forward. And we will. Our excellent capabilities and personnel and the huge drive by payers to move from volume to value will lead us into the future of health-care delivery. Charles Darwin said: It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change. NCH plans to be a survivor. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org Newborns do better in Southwest FloridaState says best neonatal survival rates found at HealthParkThe Regional Perinatal Intensive Care Center of Lee Memorial Health System was recently recognized for having the best neonatal survival rates of all RPICC centers in Florida. Lee Memorial Health Systems RPICC includes the high-risk OB unit at HealthPark Medical Center and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. It is one of only 11 such facilities in the state, and the only one in the five-county Southwest Florida area. Its primary goals are to provide the best medical care to mothers during highrisk pregnancies, as well as care to low birth weight or critically ill infants while they are in the womb and after birth. When Deborah Sellick went to the doctor for a checkup 22 weeks into her first pregnancy, she thought her appointment would be routine. Instead, she was told she was going into labor 18 weeks early. They told us to prepare for the worst, says Deborahs husband, Matt Sellick. Kayden was born nine days later weighing just 1 pound, 8 ounces. From there, he had some serious, life-threatening challenges, Ms. Sellick says. The only Level III facility in the area, the NICU at HealthPark provides the highest level of neonatal care available in the region. It is staffed by a dedicated team of board certified neonatologists, neonatal ICU nurses, nurse practitioners, respiratory and physical therapists, dieticians, and many subspecialty medical staff members who are experienced in caring for ill infants. The extraordinary care these tiny patients and their mothers receive is the result of a high level of dedication and teamwork among the medical staff, from the obstetrician to the neonatal doctors and nurses involved within the RPICC Program, explains William Liu, M.D., neonatologist and medical director of RPICC at Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. We continually participate in programs and quality initiatives to maintain a leading edge on the newest care techniques and technological advances. This recognition acknowledges our hard work and dedication to providing the best care and meeting the needs of these fragile infants and their families. The RPICC Program is administered by Childrens Medical Services in the Florida Department of Health. Lee Memorial Health System is required to submit data to the state RPICC Program for evaluation. Surveyors visit the hospital to examine performance in areas such as patient care, policies and procedures, documentation and safety and quality initiatives. Among sever al top o utcomes, the most recent evaluation found that Lee Memorial Health System had the lowest overall neonatal and perinatal mortality in the state RPICC system. Every year our outcomes have been high and each year they impr ove, but being recognized as the best in the state is a special distinction, reflective of our dedication to provide the best care, says Kathy Bridge Liles, CAO of Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida. The team has such a special sense of pride in the unit and that really comes through in their work. Kayden spent his first 137 days in the NICU, aided by oxygen. He had bleeding in the brain and three holes in his heart, but his lungs were the biggest setback. Early delivery also made him susceptible to numerous infections. Today, Kayden is doing well and catching up with other toddlers his age. Ms. Sellick credits the caring staff at the childrens hospital for their tenacity in helping Kayden heal. We had so much support from family, friends and people we didnt even know. Until you have been in this situation, you have no idea how difficult it is its humbling, says Ms. Sellick. Neonatal intensive care unit graduate Kayden, and his parents, Matt and Deborah Sellick, celebrate with NICU nurses Jami Sealey and Jovita Jackson during a NICU reunion pajama party.

Research shows that alcoholism and the misuse of prescription drugs are becoming a life-threatening epidemic in older people. It is estimated that 70 percent of all hospitalized older persons and up to half of nursing home residents have alcohol-related problems. Among older people there is reason for concern about mixing alcohol and drugs. More than 83 percent of people over age 65 take some form of prescription medications, and half of those contain sedatives. Older adults have dramatically different needs, says Heather Burton, clinical director at Hazelden in Naples. For example, our metabolism changes as we get older, which can affect our tolerance. And complications from diabetes can arise from drinking alcohol. There are also gender differences, she adds. Older women conceal their addictions better, even though it affects them more.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA30 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 PET TALESBest smellerTeach your dog how to use his nose for good BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickHave you ever wished there was a dog sport that anyone and any dog could do? Wish no more. Nose work is what youve been looking for. If your dog can eat treats out of a box or has a favorite toy, he can excel at this fun sport. Purebreds and mixed breeds of all ages, sizes and abilities are finding a place in nose work classes and competitions. The object of the game is for the dog to find a particular odor birch, anise or clove and alert his handler to the find by sitting, looking at the person or displaying some other signal. It can be played indoors or outdoors on all types of surfaces. Weather or environmental factors such as wind, rain, snow, air conditioners or heating vents affect the dispersal of scent and the difficulty of the find. Nose work, which was invented in 2006 by three California dog trainers, isnt just a way for your dog to use his sniffer. It helps shy or fearful dogs learn confidence, strengthens the bond between dog and handler, and permits older dogs to remain active and interested in life. In this sport, the dog takes the lead. Its his nose that does the work, after all. Both dog and handler must learn to read and respond to the subtleties of each others body language, and dogs must learn to overcome distractions, handler interference and individual fears, such as shiny floors or tight corners. For people, it can be difficult to step back and not try to direct the dog. The word No is off the table, as are any other corrections and obedience commands. Letting the dog work and believing him when he gives the alert signal is easier said than done, but youll find that practice enriches communication between you and your dog. Its essential to reward the dog for finds. Thats where treats or a favorite toy come in. Dogs start by finding an open box on the floor filled with treats. They get to eat the treats out of the box, plus they get more treats and praise when they find the container. Even if he needs a little help, the dog is always rewarded for finding a scent. Gradually, scent is paired with the treats in the box. As the dog progresses, hes eventually searching for scent alone, but he always gets rewarded with treats or a favorite toy and praise when he makes a find. Thats a big ego boost for any dog, but it especially benefits dogs with little confidence. Its not unusual to see shy or timid dogs become excited about searches after just a couple of classes. Got a dog who barks or snarls at his fellow canines? Thats not a problem in nose work. Each dog works individually while the others are out of sight in a car or crate. They might see each other in passing, but class members learn quickly which dogs need more space and then work together to accommodate their needs. Even after the dog learns the basics, most people continue to go to class for practice and camaraderie. Nose work is a game that you can do just for fun, but it also has a competitive element. After passing an Odor Recognition Test (ORT) proving that the dog has the ability to find and recognize a particular odor, dog/handler teams can compete for titles at different levels: NW1, NW2, NW3 and NW3 Elite. Find classes through the National Association of Canine Scent Work, which held its first national trial earlier this year. The highly developed canine sense of smell makes nose work an ideal sport for any dog. Bazinga is a neutered Jack Russell/fox terrier mix whos about 6 months old and wont grow much bigger. Sunny Bear is a sweet, neutered, 2-year-old Scottish terrier/ schnauzer mix who weighs about 30 pounds and is oh, so cute. Tia Mia is a spayed hound mix whos about 6 months old. She weighs about 20 pounds now and will probably top out at around 35 pounds. Wild Mama is a spayed, 2-year-old Bassett hound/ rat terrier mix.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 NEWS A31 THE DIVA DIARIESSlow down and smell the pumpkin spice latte The Grinch isnt going to steal Christmas this year; hes already stolen November. I hear the complaints everywhere I go these days: What happened to November? Surely youve noticed it, too. We went straight from Halloween to Christmas with no regard for Thanksgiving whatsoever. Ive lived here most of my life, but like most of you, Im from Ohio (nods to those of you from Michigan and Indiana), and my earliest memories of November are of fall dcor cornhusks, colorful leaves, paper pilgrims, shiny apples, scarecrows, pumpkinscented everything and, most importantly, gourds. Gourds everywhere. But here in Southwest Florida, Ive already started seeing garland on storefront awnings and red ribbons on street lamps. I was used to aisles of holiday dcor in Walgreens and other retail stores theyve been selling it since late August but theres something jarring about seeing it outside, in public, in the harsh glare of the sun so early in the season. One night last week as I was driving through a neighborhood on my way to a party, I was shocked to see that the Griswolds had moved in. There was a house lit up from stem to stern. Giant candy canes dotted the yard, as did eight reindeer, a nativity scene (complete with the little drummer boy) and more, more, MORE. The other day, when the temperature actually fell into the low 70s for a minute, a friend reported that a woman in her office showed up to work in a turtleneck Christmas sweater with actual jingle bells that jingled as pranced through the halls. When I vented about all this on Facebook, everyone agreed that they were appalled by the sudden leap to Christmas and the blatant disregard for poor November. Then there was a comment from the heartland Amy Wampler from Tipp City, Ohio (who Ive known since nursery school), wrote: Our family intends to enjoy the fall harvest, Thanksgiving and a month of gratitude for all our blessings before we jump into the winter holidays. Take some advice from Amy, Southwest Florida. Life is short. Slow down and smell the pumpkin spice latte once in awhile.Farm City BBQYou can stroll, drive or even fly to the 58th annual Farm City BBQ on the day before Thanksgiving. If youre looking to see lots of familiar faces, fill up on local food and give back to the community while youre at it, put this uber-local event on your must-do list. For $20, youll eat like a king, with all proceeds designated for these great programs for kids: the Collier County 4H Association, Youth Leadership Collier, Collier County Junior Deputy League and Key Club International. This years location is the Naples Municipal Airport, where stacks and stacks of wooden pallets will serve as tables for the masses who show up for the feast. If you get there in time, you can even take home a bag brimming with local produce for $10. The Farm City BBQ lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 27. Go to www.farmcitybbq.com to find more info and even pay for your tickets.

She most recently was sales manager for a national restaurant concept in Naples. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 Understanding equity options can open new doors for investorsMany experienced equity investors remain unfamiliar with equity options. Investors might consider expanding beyond their curiosity and adopt a game plan to learn how to use them. They offer some opportunities to increase total return and to protect an individual stock position. Options are a type of derivative. They are derived from another asset. Most financial derivatives are contracts between two parties. In this case, a stock option is a contract relating to a specific stock. The contract with which investors are most familiar (and which is used analogously in this column) is a real estate contract in which one party is a buyer of specific real estate asset and the other party is a seller of the real estate specified under the contract. In a real estate contract, performance is desired: the buyer and seller want to, ultimately, exchange the property covered under the contract terms exchanged for specific consideration at a specific time and in a specific way. Financial contracts are different from real estate contracts as many times performance is not the ultimate goal it can be the end result of the financial contract but most times the contract is exited before expiration (or end of the contract) where performance would be required. Terms are standardized and there can be sufficient liquidity to exit the position. Within the world of financial contracts, the most commonly used are stock option contracts. There are two types of stock option contracts: call option contracts and put option contracts. A call option contract gives one of the parties to the contract the option/the right to buy from the other at a specific price (the strike price). A put option contract gives one of the parties the right to force a sale to the other. The contract terms are standardized except that the strike prices and expiration dates of the contracts will vary. The concept of calls and puts will be applied to a real estate example. A hypothetical call option in real estate would give the owner of the call the right to buy a property at a specific price and at a specific time (i.e., the right to call for the property). The call option owner does not have the obligation to buy the property. This right is not freely given and it requires a payment to induce the seller of the property to enter into such a contract. Why would a call on the property be of value? It might be that the call owner expects real estate prices to rise but he is not sure that real estate prices will rise and he doesnt want to tie up all of his funds. He is willing to pay a premium for the option to buy at a later time. (Obviously the seller of the option is thinking that real estate will remain stagnant or fall.) A hypothetical put option in real estate would give the owner of the put the right to force a sale to a buyer: He wants the right to put the property to a buyer at a specified price and at a specified time. He will have to pay a premium in order to get this option. The seller does not have the obligation to sell the property. Why would a put on the property be of value? The put is of protective value to the seller in that, if real estate prices fell, then he has the right to force a sale of the property at the formerly agreed price that is now above current market value. Back to equity options With an equity call option contract, the buyer of the call has the right to buy the underlying stock at a specified price at a specified time in a specified amount of shares. Importantly, this is a right to buy the stock, but not an obligation to buy the underlying stock. If the underlying equity rises, and rises above the strike price, then it is likely that the buyer of the option will call for the stock (i.e. exercise the right to buy). The other side of this call contract is held by the seller of the option who is obliged to provide/deliver/sell the underlying stock if it is called away. If the stock has risen in value since the time the contract was entered into, then most often the investor who sold the call option will lose money. If the option premium received plus the strike price is greater than the current price of the stock, then the investor has profited. Conversely, if the option price plus the strike price is less than the current value of the stock, the buyer of the call option lost money.The buyer of the equity put option has the right to force a sale of the underlying stock at a specified price at a specified time. Importantly, this is a right to force a sale, but not an obligation to sell the underlying stock. If the underlying equity falls below the strike price, then it is likely that the buyer of the put option will force a sale. The other side of this put contract was the sale of the put by the party who was betting that the stock would not fall below the put strike price. He collected the premium for taking the risk that the stock price would fall and they would be required to buy the stock at a price below the strike price. And that is possibly why investors dont get involved with puts and calls because it has its own set of terms and it involves a logic different than just buying low and selling high. But once learned, options can be very useful tools to accomplish purposes that simple buys and sales just cannot accomplish. Consult your adviser and determine if they have the expertise in options and, if so, then ask if options have a role in your portfolio.

Employees at the Fort Myers farm include a microbiologist, chemical engineer and horticulturalist. They are finetuning the farms system based on aquaponics, a combination of aquaculture (raising seafood) and hydroponics (plants grown with little or no soil). While Selovita was founded four years ago, the farm itself began early this year. Now, hundreds of pounds of lettuce varietals are harvested there each week, as well as wheatgrass and greens such as micro-mint and sweet yellow corn shoots, all on less than an acre of land, said Whitney Fuller, Selovitas marketing director. The company plans to lease another 8.5 acres of adjoining land to complete its Fort Myers campus, which will be used for food production as well as training and development purposes for iSeedUSAs mission. In one part of the warehouse, long rows of nutrient-rich microgreens sit in trays in a cavernous darkened room with optimal lighting. Outside, lettuces in pots under a greenhouse-style canopy are stacked one on top of the other to use space efficiently. The farms first fish harvest, from a series of 6,000-gallon tanks, each holding 3,500 tilapia sustained by organic feed, is slated for March 2014. A portion of water from the tanks is used to fertilize the farms crop; the rest is either discarded or made into an organic liquid fertilizer that itself has broad retail possibilities, from sports turf to home gardens. Since the process is patent-pending, Ms. Fuller declined to go into great detail about how it works. Already, Florida Urban Organics products are being carried at Adas Natural Market in Fort Myers, she said. Its wheatgrass will be used at the juice bar, for instance. Lettuces and microgreens are being marketed to gourmet restaurants and stores such as Whole Foods in Naples. Im exited to see what the consumer reaction is going to be to this different variety of produce, Ms. Fuller said. I think chefs will get very excited about this. I hope they will. I would if I were a chef.iSeedUSAOne of iSeedUSAs smaller systems is designed to produce enough fish and vegetables for a family of five to both feed themselves and produce an income. It can be scaled up or down; a larger system could feed and provide income for a village of 100 people. A smaller system costs about $5,000 (although that could change as it continues to be developed) and includes all the hardware such as a greenhouse structure and pipes, as well as training materials and assistance, seeds and fish. That price point is out of the range of many communities that iSeedUSA seeks to help. Thats why part of Beverly E. Niles job as iSeeds outreach coordinator is to connect people who could benefit from it with groups or individuals who have the money to pay for the systems. Ms. Niles explained the Fort Myers farm is also looking for volunteers of ages ranging from high school and college students to the retirement community, for work in both the for-profit and nonprofit sides of the farm. For instance, volunteers might run tours of the Fort Myers facility once its fully operational, complete community service hours for a school project, or even go overseas to help provide training for aquaponics systems. The farm is also welcoming interns, who could be involved in fields as diverse as accounting, marketing, social media, microbiology, engineering and horticulture. There are so many possibilities because we have such a broad spectrum of disciplines, Ms. Niles said. AquacultureAquaponics and other aquaculture systems that integrate agriculture, arent ideas exclusive to Selovita, of course. The Royal Tila farm advertises itself as a state-of-the-art aquaponic farm in Punta Gorda, one of at least a handful of blended farms throughout the United States that have popped up in recent years as the idea gained popularity. There is a lot of interest in new forms of aquaculture that integrate multiple species, Ken Peterson, communications director for Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, wrote in an e-mail. At the heart of the issue, its a way to turn what otherwise would be waste products and potential sources of pollution into productive uses. For decades, the sprawling North Fort Myers garden and farm ECHO has developed practical farming techniques that can be used by impoverished people in different climates throughout the world. About three months ago they began using a demonstration-size aquaponic system with a large fish tank and roughly 100-square feet of vegetable growing space, said Craig Bielema, ECHOs appropriate technology specialist. In general, it uses much less water than conventional agriculture because theoretically theres none leaching through the soil, he said. Its especially impactful for very dry regions, open countries, and typically those are the ones that have the biggest problems with agriculture anyway. He adds that the method is far from magic: A lot of things you read or see or hear make it sound like a food vending machine where you put in some fish pellets and out pops all this wonderful lettuce, he said. (But) theres a large amount of work that goes into it. There are different types of chores to do but its still work to manage your crops and animals. Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota is designing an aquaculture-agriculture project connected to freshwater sturgeon ponds, Mr. Peterson noted; And a well-known chef in Kentucky is raising tilapia and salad vegetables for her restaurant at an aquaculture farm in Lexington. But the Fort Myers farm off Metro represents the most advanced aquaponics system out there, Ms. Fuller said. In one of the Selovitas smaller applications, it will provide Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm in North Fort Myers with spent wheatgrass soil to provide fodder for Rosys pigs, chickens and cattle, said owner Rose ODell King. Its been pretty exciting taking what is a waste product for them and turning it into food for our animals here on the farm, she said, adding that it could be composted as well. I just fell in love with what theyre doing there. Its high-tech and low-tech all at one time. Less directly, urban farming that aims to produce food in relatively tight spaces dovetails with New Urbanism, a design movement with roots in Florida, which aims to rein in suburbia by encouraging dense, mixed-use developments. New Urbanism is simpatico with the local food movement for sure, said Tim Halbur, communications director at Congress for the New Urbanism, an advocacy group. The caveat there is that densification makes more sense, though. If you can do it on a smaller scale so that it melds with the urban fabric I think thats great.

Since then, my stock has grown in value more than tenfold. I began in 1996 as an online tool called BackRub that used links to determine the importance of individual pages on the Internet. My current name is a play on the number thats a 1 followed by 100 zeros. Over the years, Ive acquired Picasa, YouTube, Zagat and Motorola Mobility.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Do You Need a Trust?Dont dismiss the idea of a trust fund, thinking its for the very rich. Trusts can serve a wide range of people. First used in medieval England, trusts are now used for many purposes, such as dividing ownership of property. The trustee is the legal owner and may control and take responsibility for the property, while the beneficiary holds the sole right to enjoy the property.Trusts can be preferable to wills for ensuring the orderly transfer of property: Trusts can take effect immediately, handling circumstances that wills cannot. For instance, if youre seriously injured, a trustee may take over your finances until youre able to assume responsibility again. Assets that pass through trusts are generally not subject to probate proceedings. Thus, they can help you avoid unnecessary delay, expense and publicity. Trusts can usually be changed without the formalities required for altering a will. A trust may help you postpone or avoid taxes. But trusts have drawbacks, too: Trusts are often more complicated to draft than a will. A poorly drafted trust can be nearly impossible to execute. Many professionals charge much more to draft a trust than a will. (It can still be worth it, though.) Appointing a guardian is typically done in a will, not a trust. There are revocable and irrevocable trusts, and living and testamentary trusts (linked with wills). Unfortunately, its not always easy to determine when a trust is your smartest option. Study the matter closely before making a decision, and consult a professional or two if youre not comfortable deciding on your own. Remember that having a solid estate plan is essential to achieving your ultimate goals and to saving your heirs time and money. Dont put off thinking about your last financial arrangements.

I go it alone now and have beaten the S&P 500 for two years in a row and I dont do puts, calls, margins, ETFs, commodities or Big Oil. J.B., Reston, Va.The Fool Responds: Brokers and money managers will not always serve you well. Some suffer from conflicts of interest, such as when theyre rewarded for having you invest often or in certain securities. Money managers sometimes focus on delivering great short-term results instead of aiming for maximum long-term growth.Youre right that you can do very well without using any complicated or risky strategies, such as put and call options (which often expire worthless), or margin (where you invest with borrowed money) or commodities (which can be highly leveraged and can cost you much of your money if they go the wrong way). Exchange-traded funds (ETFs), though, can be effective especially ones with low fees, based on broad market indexes. Investing in oil companies has paid off for many, but those opposed to the industry can certainly do well without it. An IBM Opportunity?IBM (NYSE: IBM) recently reported its third-quarter earnings, which featured cloud-computing revenue up 70 percent and its Smarter Planet infrastructure project seeing a 20 percent increase. That may seem great, but these promising divisions are still small.The companys core divisions, from software to services to hardware, all posted drops. Server systems sales, for example, plunged 17 percent. Overall, revenue slipped 4 percent, to a still-massive $23.7 billion, with income sliding 6 percent. Its services order backlog rose 2 percent to $141 billion.Whats going on? Well, as it always does, the technology ground is shifting. Under new management (CEO Ginni Rometty), IBM is changing its business model and adapting. Its investing in Big Data companies and technology, for example, which seems smart when you consider that the amount of data we store every year is growing by a mind-boggling 60 percent annually. Weakness in global economies and even at home, where many companies are holding off on IT spending, has hampered IBM, but thats not a permanent problem. For patient believers, IBM stock recently offered a 2.1 percent dividend yield, and the company has been buying back stock aggressively. Competition has been heating up, but IBM is making long-term investments, and with a recent price-to-earnings ratio near 12, its shares look appealing. I was founded in 1951 in New York by a mushroom grower who had bought a depleted iron ore mine. Today, based in Boston and with a market value near $5 billion, Im a storage specialist, helping more than 156,000 organizations in 32 countries store, protect and manage their information. More than 94 percent of the Fortune 1000 companies use my services. I store some of the worlds most valuable historical artifacts, cultural treasures, business documents and medical records. I offer secure shredding and data backup and recovery services, too. I rake in about $3 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Iron Mountain) Investing While YoungQIts not too risky for me to invest in stocks when Im a teenager, right? T.L., Walnut Creek, Calif.AYoung people investing for the long run are in the best position. Imagine being 15 and investing $1,000, earning the historical average annual market return of around 10 percent. In 30 years, when youre only 45, it will top $17,000. Sock it away until retirement at 65 and it will approach $120,000. Add to it over the years and youre looking at early retirement! People in or near retirement have far less time in which their money can grow. And they should be more conservative in their investments, too, because they may be relying on them for critical income. Older folks dont always have the luxury of being able to wait out market downturns. If youre a teen or a young adult, though, and the stock market swoons, you can just be patient. In fact, thats a great time to snap up more shares, when prices are depressed. If youll need any of your money in a few years for college or anything else, stocks arent a good idea, as the market could drop in the short term, like it did in 2008. Short-term money (money needed within five or even 10 years) should be in safer places, such as money market funds or CDs.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSWith apologies to my writing workshop partnerTo the young man I met at the Sanibel Island Writers Conference: My apologies. I should have known better. When the presenter at one of the workshops said we would try a short writing exercise, I should have known we wouldnt keep it to ourselves. But before I knew it, she had set the timer and said, Go. Without thinking, I started to write. The thing about my writing lately is that it has been a little, shall we say, salacious. Im in between big projects, just off a two-year bookwriting binge that took all of my time and most of my sanity. Im only now pulling my head out of that sand. When I do write, I seem to be circling the same few topics. They are all it should come as no surprise filthy. Its just a phase youre going through, a writer friend said to reassure me. A wildness. That wildness came out at the conference, in the auditorium at BIG ARTS on Sanibel. For 10 minutes, I wrote my nowfamiliar smut. Nothing new, nothing alarming, just the same topics Ive been working over for weeks. The alarming part came after the presenter announced time was up. Go ahead and share what youve written with the person next to you, she said. Do what? I looked around the room. Everyone else had already partnered up, so that I was alone in that writerly sea with a man young enough and cute enough to make me blush. He turned around and passed his notebook to me. I started to say something about my piece not being ready, that I wasnt comfortable sharing it, but I glanced down at the page he had written and I could see right away that it was a brave, bold piece of writing. He launched into family secrets of abuse and alcoholism from the first line. He probably wasnt old enough to buy a drink and still he was willing to share this powerful material with a stranger. And I was going to sit there and not hand over mine? No way. So I gave him my notebook. It took him forever to read it. Not only am I a smutty writer, but Im also a fast writer. I had filled an entire page. When he finally finished, he looked up and said, This is good. I smiled sheepishly and thanked him, turning red all the way to my hot little ears. When the class ended, I thought to lean forward and put a hand on his shoulder, that I might tell him I was sorry he had to read what I wrote, that I never intended for it to be seen, but he left before I had a chance to say anything. I started to put my notebook away and I paused to glance over the first few lines of what I had written. Maybe it wasnt so bad after all. Actually, it was worse. Where that kind of lasciviousness came from, I cant say. But I had written it. And that kid had read it and then he had run, terrified, from the auditorium. And for that I am sorry. o f a b T T a artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 North Naples 1015 Crosspointe Dr. Downtown Naples 261 9th St. S.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 says but often for all the wrong reasons. For years, everybody who didnt have a budget did it, he says. It has no sets, so its very easy to produce, in one sense. But its a difficult play to do well. Many of us have seen bad productions of Our Town. I think its mostly because people think its easy to produce, but I think its very complicated. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies thinks so highly of the play that every year he has his students at Yale University read it. He considers it one of his pleasures in teaching. Many of his students, Mr. Margulies says, have sort of disparaging things to say about the play, based on having seen very poor or primitive depictions of it when they were growing up. They have quaint notions of it being like a Norman Rockwell painting, but its much darker and existential. I think when they look at it again and see where it fits into American drama, and realize it was written in 1937, (they change their minds). In his essay that acts as a foreword for the HarperPerennial Modern Classics edition of Our Town, Mr. Margulies calls it possibly the great American play. He confesses he didnt like the play all that much until he saw a 1988 Lincoln Center production, directed by Gregory Moser and starring Spalding Gray as the Stage Manager. I was so mesmerized by its subversive power, so warmed by its wisdom, so shattered by its third act, that I couldnt believe it was the same play I thought I had known since childhood, he writes. Its a work of art, he says. Wilder was trying theatrical devices that had not been used in American drama before. Its an artistic milestone in modern American drama. Mr. Wilders stage instructions begin:No curtain. No scenery. The audience, arriving, sees an empty stage in half-light.Mr. Scanlans theater history teacher at the University of Kentucky, Wally Briggs, attended the opening night performance of Our Town. He said people absolutely gasped in the beginning, because before then, no one had ever showed a theater stage, he recalls. It was always a set: a living room, a dining room. A play was always highly produced. All of a sudden, theres an empty stage, a back wall with a couple ladders. Mr. Wilder also opens the play with a character referred to as the Stage Manager, who directly addresses the audience. He says, This play was written by Thornton Wilder, he says. Its clear from the beginning its a play. Nobody tries to fool you into thinking its anything else. When Our Town first opened, 75 years ago, the idea of an actor speaking directly to the audience and narrating was shocking. The structure is completely radical, Mr. Scanlan says. The centerpiece is not a problem that needs to be resolved. In Oedipus Rex, Hamlet (and all other plays), theres always a problem. But in Our Town, there are no problems that need to be resolved. (Instead) its an experience for the audience to go through. Its the most challenging play to produce in the American canon, he adds, because theres no one to hook your hopes on, no suspense in whats going to happen. The Stage Manager tells you in the beginning whos going to die, and when. Theres no suspense. Its all about building a world and inviting the audience into that world. The best theater, he says, is when the audience feels a part of the world. A lot of times, the audience is just observing the world (thats on the stage). If you can get them participating in that world, thats where the catharsis comes in, the identification. Our Town is a great opportunity for the audience to identify with the action of the play, because theres not that separation between audience and actors thats kind of built into the structure of a lot of plays.Birth, death and in-betweenOur Town is about community. Because the audience plays a central role in the reason why the play exists, Mr. Scanlans production for The Naples Players stresses communication back and forth from the stage to the audience and vice versa. For example, theres congregational singing we ask the audience to join in on, the director says. We use hymns to involve the audience. We have the audience help us make the sound effects. We want the audience to feel that they are part of the production, they are part of the town, and part of the community that is Our Town. He cast 25 people for the show, all with varying degrees of experience. The cast and design staff have become a community themselves, he says, with the more experienced actors helping those who are less so. Mr. Scanlan has noticed that the young people in the cast cant resist watching the scenes between the two young lovers, Emily and George, even though its nothing like what relationships are like today, he says. When they hold hands its the tiniest touch that is so exciting. In that way, its so different. And theres something magical about the love between those people, and the love between the families. The young people get it. You wouldnt think they would. More mature people relate to the plays depiction of the life cycle: birth, marriage, death. Mr. Scanlan compares it to looking at a painting and seeing one thing when youre 20, and another thing when youre 60. Beginning with a birth and ending with a death, the play is the whole arc of life, he says. We have birth and marriage and we have death the whole of human experience, in two hours and three acts. The death in Our Town is that of a young woman in childbirth. Mr. Scanlan describes Mr. Wilders handling of it as magnificent. Theres the kind of comfort that death is just the next step, he says. Death is seen as something you have to relax into. Its a letting go of those things that keep you from relaxing into it. Because its set in the early 1900s, some people tend to think of Our Town as a stuffy, old-fashioned and dated play. Not so, Mr. Scanlan insists. Thornton Wilder is a brilliant writer, and this is a very special play, he says. Its asking us to look at life and see life as it is, and as we very rarely recognize, in its beautiful, complicated detail. We want to disabuse anybody of thinking its a dead, old-fashioned play. Its not. Its not dead. Its not old-fashioned. Its very contemporary and very exciting. Its so strange, and so radical in so many ways.

Coleman, D.O. ARTS COMMENTARYSomething Intangible is the real thing: sheer geniusArt and commerce may walk handin-hand, but the journeys not always smooth. They tug and pull at each other, demanding dominance. Each needs the other, but a peaceful coexistence isnt always possible. Creativity thrives in chaos, in novelty, in the unexpected. Creativity dwells in possibilities. Business requires order, precision, absolutes. Business worships predictability. Something Intangible, playing at the Gulfshore Playhouse through Nov. 24, reveals how the two grapple, but also complement each other. Tony Wiston (Shawn Fagan) and his brother, Dale (Ian Merrill Peakes) run an animation studio. Their star character, Petey Pup, is the second-most recognized face in the world. (Hes second to Charlie Chaplin, but more recognizable than FDR.) Petey Pup is described as a combination of Horatio Alger and Harold Lloyd, an animated figure who defies logic, gravity and even death itself, though he has his own set of rules. (For example, he must always appear in his green shorts.) The two brothers, of course, are thinly disguised stand-ins for Walt and Roy Disney. Tony is the creative; ideas simply tumble out of him. Dales the suit, dealing with numbers and financing. As he tells his psychoanalyst, Sonia Feldman (Charlotte Booker), Im a numbers person. I love nice, neat columns, when everything adds up. But creativity doesnt happen in neat columns. It only exists by taking wild leaps and being, at least on the surface, impractical. You get the feeling that as much as Dale wishes Tony were more like him (more adult, more responsible), he also wishes he could be more like Tony (free, unrestrained, creative). He longs for his brothers love, for some recognition. Dale works behind the scenes obtaining funding, while Tony enjoys the limelight and the applause. Yet without Dale, Tony wouldnt be able to put Petey Pup or anyone, for that matter on the screen. For the entire show, Dale wears a doublebreasted, navy blue pinstriped suit. Hes so uptight, so by-the-book, you suspect he was born wearing that suit, or one similar. Mr. Peakes excels in his role: fidgety, nervous, full of emotions he keeps tightly bottled inside. He starts seeing a psychoanalyst, though hes not sure why. Ms. Booker, as the analyst, remains seated on-stage for the entire performance, suggesting, perhaps, that were seeing the story through Dales eyes, as he relays scenes to her. Tony is as uninhibited as Dale is uptight. Hes like a child: The world is full of curiosities and delights to explore. Hes limited only his boundless imagination. Mr. Fagan plays him as an overgrown child, bouncing about onstage, mercurial, impetuous. He fires a worker, only to rehire him moments later. The two leads play well off of each other. They also demonstrate the stereotypes of birth order: Dale, the older, is more responsible, more staid; Tony, the younger, is fun-loving and irresponsible. Three other actors fill in the ensemble, though Dale and Tony remain in the spotlight. Josh Tobin plays Leo, a young artist at the studio. Mr. Tobin plays him with the right mixture of vulnerability and eagerness. Tonys fame and success come at Leos expense; he works the young man mercilessly, taking credit for his work. Peter Reznikoff plays dual roles: as Doc, he is the friendly but prudent banker who holds the purse strings; as Gustav Von Meyerhoff, hes a pompous, fiery conductor participating in Tonys masterpiece: a never-done-before, full-length film of animated imagery set to classical music. And then theres the aforementioned Ms. Booker, whose character, it turns out, loves movies as much as she does probing psyches. Through his staging, director Cody Nickell makes creative use of The Norris Centers small space. The action takes place in a 1940s Hollywood studio office designed by Ken Goldstein. Its all blonde wood and an oversized window that looks like an opened scroll. But Mr. Nickell also uses it for a variety of other settings, including the therapists office, a boat, a water tower and a screening room. Thanks to David Uptons clever lighting and Gabriel Luxtons keen sound design, this all works. One of the more creative scenes occurs when two characters are watching a movie. We dont see the movie itself, but we see its light flickering in the dark over the people, and we see the characters reactions to what theyre seeing onscreen sheer joy and hilarity. Costume designer Jennifer Bronsted perfectly captures the era with the clothing: the textures and cuts of the suits, the eyeglasses, shoes and haircuts. Bruce Grahams play doesnt shy away from the ugly parts of Tonys personality: his homophobia and anti-Semitism, his willingness to make his money on the backs of his employees. But he is so playful you cant help but like him. Something Intangible shows the way the mind sparks with inspiration: Making wild leaps, it displays the relentless drive to perfection, the inner compulsion to keep working on a project until its the best it can be. Not only the story of two Disney-like brothers, its an examination of the creative process, of art versus commerce, of collaboration and, yes, sibling rivalry. And its about the love of movies, those strips of celluloid that can transport us and make us laugh. Every person in this play is in love with movies. Tony is forever in search of something intangible that magical something in a creative work that moves the hearts of an audience. This Gulfshore Playhouse production has it in spades. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Something Intangible>> When: Through Nov. 24 >> Where: Gulfshore Playhouse, The Norris Center, Naples >> Cost: Single tickets start at $33 >> Info: (866) 811-4111 or www.gulfshoreplayhouse.org COURTESY PHOTOIan Merrill Peakes and Shawn Fagan in Something Intangible.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A new development could snarl travel schedules or other holiday-linked projects. Some flexibility might be called for to deal with the problems before they get too far out of hand. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) High-energy aspects dominate, both on the job and at home. Use this time to put some long-range plans into operation. Things level off later in the week. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Even the usually gregarious Goat might feel overwhelmed by a flurry of activities. Be patient. Things soon return to your normal social routine. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Career choices that seem too confusing to deal with at this point probably are. More information would help uncomplicate them. On the personal side, a friend might need your advice. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your Piscean imagination is stimulated by possibilities you see in a new opportunity. But keep those ideas to yourself until you feel ready to translate them into a workable format. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Decisions involving your finances might seem to be foolproof. But they could have underlying risks you should know about. Dont act on anything until all the facts are in. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre attracted to a situation that appeals to your Bovine intellect. And thats good. But dont neglect your passionate side when romance comes calling later in the week. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A recent development enhances that special relationship. Spending more time together also helps make the bonding process stronger. Expect news about a possible career change. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A suspicious situation should be dealt with before it leads to serious problems. Get all the facts needed to resolve it. Then refocus your energies on those tasks that need your attention. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Try to be more open-minded in working toward a resolution of that standoff between yourself and a colleague or family member. A little flexibility now could work to your advantage later. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might feel a bit threatened by a proposed workplace change. The best way to deal with it is to ask questions. Youll find that those involved will be happy to provide you with the facts. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Feeling alone in a crowd during the early part of the week is an unsettling emotion. But your spirits soon perk up, putting you into the right mood to start making holiday plans. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A pesky problem should be dealt with immediately so you can put your time and effort into something more important. Someone from your past could have significant news for you. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an ingratiating way of helping people deal with their fears. Have you considered a career in social work or with the clergy?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 C11 Nov. 27 Dec. 21, 2013 THE NAPLES PLAYERS PRESENT In Blackburn Hall at Sugden Community Theatre Gift Certicates AvailableTickets: Adults $35 Students to age 21 $10Tickets: 239-263-7990 or www.naplesplayers.orgNaples Players at Sugden Community Theatre 701 5th Ave. South, Naples, FL 34102Set in the early 20th century in the ctional town of Grovers Corners, New Hampshire, the play explores the beauty of love, marriage, family and the everyday precious moments that may be taken for granted. This Pulitzer Prize winning play is a rich, poignant piece of theatre that makes the mundane riveting and gets to the core of the human experience.Performances: Wednesdays Saturdays 8:00 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3rd 8:00 p.m. Sundays 2:00 p.m. Sponsored By: 11 times awarded Best Live Theatre Is it worth $10? YesSometimes the best experiences at movies come when you least expect it. Take The Best Man Holiday, for example. Having not seen its predecessor, the critically lauded and reasonably successful (see below) The Best Man (1999), The Best Man Holiday is a pleasantly surprising, well-rounded, thoughtful, funny and heartfelt look at a group of African-American friends caught in between the exuberance of youth and oncoming mid-life crises. The opening credits provide a bit of the back story, and the rest is filled in through context and discussion. Struggling author Harper (Taye Diggs) and his wife Robyn (Sanaa Lathan) are expecting a baby. Hed like his next book to be a biography of star professional football player/his longtime friend Lance (Morris Chestnut), but Lance stills holds a grudge against Harper for sleeping with Lances wife Mia (Monica Calhoun) years ago. Also desiring Harpers affection but never receiving it is Jordan (Nia Long), who brings her white boyfriend Brian (Eddie Cibrian) to Lances home when all are invited for the holiday season. Old friends Quentin (Terrence Howard), real housewife Shelby (Melissa De Sousa), and married couple Julian (Harold Perrineau) and Candace (Regina Hall) bring issues of their own to the table. If youre thinking this is a lot to handle, it is; however, at no point does it overwhelm writer/director Malcolm D. Lee. In fact, each character is nicely developed and given a logical story arc, and we grow to care for all of them. This is important because it means the movie exists for a reason, because these characters still have relevant and interesting experiences to endure. More importantly, this is certainly not just a money-grab sequel. Its also a welcome change of pace to see a story about affluent African-Americans dealing with modern real-world issues. Consider: If youd never been to the United States and only had movies to get a sense of American culture, what would the film industry say about African-Americans? That theyre stuck in the past (Django Unchained, Years A Slave), they feel oppressed and live in harsh conditions (Precious), theyre treated unfairly (Fruitvale Station) and their comedies are stupid beyond belief (Soul Plane). Rare indeed is it to see a movie in which the main characters have dark skin and the main issue isnt race. Instead, in The Best Man Holiday the characters worry about family, friendship, loyalty, respect. You know, just like everyone does. Better, Mr. Lee, who also made the first film, does this in a poignant, touching way thats also very funny. Howard gets most of the big laughs, and Calhoun handles the bulk of the heavy drama, but all the key players more than hold their own. Also, the element of the holiday season automatically heightens the sentimentality and sensitivity of both the characters and the viewers, meaning were ready to be touched by a warm confession or a heartbreaking goodbye. The fact that Mr. Lee delivers on all he sets out to accomplish is a noble feat indeed. Granted, some of the conflicts and situations might feel artificial and forced, but by the end The Best Man Holiday will touch your heart and leave you smiling.

FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 FLORIDA WRITERSA troubled bridge over shallow waters Skyway: The True Story of Tamp a Bays Signature Bridge and the Man Who Brought It Down by Bill DeYoung. University Press of Florida. 208 pages. $24.95.A skillful combination of local history and biography, Bill DeYoungs book reveals the sharp eye and patient research of a seasoned Florida journalist. His study makes us think about the societal role of iconographic structures, their majesty and their destiny. Mr. DeYoungs portrait of the interplay between natural forces and human limitation reminds me of Shelleys great sonnet, Ozymandias, with its timeless concern about human vanity and human vulnerability: I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desart. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed: And on the pedestal these words appear: My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair! Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away. The history that Mr. DeYoung assembles is marked by four important moments. First, the opening of the original, majestic span of the bridge in 1954. Next, the delayed opening of its twin span in 19 71. Then, most notably, the freighter Summit Ventures collision with and destruction of the newer bridge on May 9, 1980. Finally, the replacement of the twin bridges in 1989 with an even more astonishing structure. The author places the planning and execution of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in the context of the Tampa Bay regions philJASONpkjason@comcast.net Bill DeYoung 239-592-0050www.NoodlesCafe.com Independently Owned & Operated The OriginalSince 1991 ITALIAN FEAST FOR 2SERVED FAMILY STYLE$29.95Not valid with other coupons or discounts.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 C13 population and economic growth. He discusses, perhaps too briefly, the tragedy five months earlier when a U.S. Coast Guard vessel and a passenger ship collided near the bridge, underscoring the difficulty of navigating the deep, manmade shipping channels of otherwise shallow Tampa Bay. In his moment-bymoment narration of the 1980 disaster, Mr. DeYoung creates the intensity we are used to finding in mystery thrillers. He takes us, as much as possible, into the thoughts and emotions of the principal players as the unfolding calamity is perceived too late in the fury of a sudden, blinding rainstorm. The principal character, who receives a full-dress biography, is harbor pilot John Lerro. His education and training, his experience, his reputation among his peers and his domestic life are given detailed attention. It was Mr. Lerro who had the responsibility of boarding the inbound Summit Venture and guiding it under the Sunshine Skyway to its port destination. Mr. Lerro failed. But could anyone have succeeded given the combination of circumstances that Mr. DeYoung so effectively presents? Depending in large part on interviews with Mr. Lerros lawyer, Steve Yerrid, the author maps out the investigations by civil authorities and the Coast Guard. He builds the tension once again in his handling of transcripts and remembrances. A strong case was built against Mr. Lerro, although he was eventually exonerated. Mr. Lerro, who died in 2002 at the age of 59 from multiple sclerosis, was always haunted by a sense of guilt. Thirtyfive people perished in this catastrophe. Mr. DeYoung details the ways in which Mr. Lerro strove to build a life of helping others as a kind of atonement for this guilt. The author provides brief, memorial profiles of those who were crossing the bridge when tragedy struck, putting us into their final moments. He also does an excellent job of representing the chaos in the immediate aftermath of the bridges failure. With a handy index and extensive notes on his sources, Mr. DeYoung, opens the door for other writers to look further into the facts and meaning of this monumental accident. Do we yearn, collectively and through our government leaders, to immortalize our greatness like emperor Ozymandias with colossal monuments on the sands or over the waters? What will time tell us about our vanity? A native of Pinellas County, Mr. DeYoung spent 26 years as a feature writer and editor with Florida newspapers. Since 2008, he has been an arts and entertainment writer/editor based in Savannah, Ga. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. e n e ar o r o f e p, ng s e y n r e g h aun t e d i s f a i n a t f a e x M Celebrate Thanksgiving!

FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 KOVEL: ANTIQUESA place to keep your prized pies safe for consumption BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELSpecial to Florida WeeklyIts time to think about Thanksgiving and the abundant dinner expected for the holiday. Tradition today suggests a menu of turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, creamed onions, sweet potatoes and apple or pumpkin pie. A greenbean casserole and deep-fried turkey are newer ideas. But the first Thanksgiving probably featured very different food: deer, turkey, wild birds, perhaps even passenger pigeons, fish, clams, mussels, some nuts and a grain called maize that was used to make bread. But by later Colonial times, pies were popular for a main course when filled with meat and for dessert when made with fruit. There were no refrigerators, not even ice boxes, but a cooked pie could be safely stored for about a week if kept away from bugs and mice. A pie safe was used for food storage by the 19th century, especially in the Midwest. A wooden cupboard on four tall thin legs was made with shelves and drawers. But the sides and the cupboard doors had panels made of pierced tin. The sharp edges of the holes kept out most creatures and the holes let in air so the cooked fruit did not create mold. The cabinet was kept on a porch on the cool, shaded side of the house. Collectors today like handmade informal kitchen furniture. The best pie safes had tin panels with the holes placed in attractive patterns. Sometimes the tin or the wood was painted. Some experts today say a pie can stay on a shelf for two or three days and still be OK to eat. Refrigerating a fruit pie lowers the quality of the pie. Q: My mother has some Royal Doulton figurines of women dressed in elaborate ruffled hoop skirts, bonnets and shawls. But one figurine seems a bit This yellow pine pie safe was made in Virginia in the 19th century. It is 65 inches high. An eager buyer paid $3,159 for it at a Pook & Pook auction in Downingtown, Pa., in April 2013.

Could it be a fake? A: The Royal Doulton figurines made by Doulton and Co. after 1902 were made to sell in gift shops. Most of the figurines were sentimental, lovable, beautiful ladies from a more romantic century. But one of Doultons designers, Leslie Harradine, made small anthropomorphic animals and other figures that were unusual. He designed several figurines of women lounging on couches in provocative poses. One called Dreamland, made in the 1930s, was in the Art Deco style. Another, Siesta, made between 1928 and 1938, featured a shapely blond in a flimsy dress leaning on a sofa covered with a pink shawl. Both of these figurines are rare and expensive today. Siesta sold in 2013 for $1,560. Dreamland was listed a few years ago for $7,000, but is worth a little less today. The fame of the artist is the reason the figurines sell for high prices. Q: A gumball machine was left in a commercial building we bought back in 1968. There is a one-cent decal on the glass top. A metal label on the silver lip where the gum comes out reads, Parkway Machine Corp., 715 Ensor St., Baltimore 2. Md. Can you give me any information about the machine? A: Parkway Machine was founded in 1938 by Irv Kovens. He was a Baltimore cab driver who repaired and sold stamp machines on the side. Parkway Machine initially repaired vending machines. The company began selling vending machines and supplies in 1941. Your gumball machine was made between 1943, when oneor two-digit postal zone numbers were first used, and 1963, when five-digit ZIP codes were introduced. In 1999 the companys name became A&A Global Industries. Its still in business, run by members of the Kovens family, but is now based in Cockeysville, Md. Q: I have a grayish foot warmer about 11 inches long. The words in blue on the top are Henderson Foot Warmer. The bottom is marked Dorchester Pottery Wks., Boston, Mass. There is a brass screw filler with a chain attached to the neck. On the filler it says Pat. Nov. 15, 1912. What would this foot warmer be worth today? A: George Henderson founded Dorchester Pottery in Dorchester, Mass., in 1895. The pott ery made jugs, jars, flower pots, butter pots, specialty items and, later, dinnerware. Henderson was granted a patent for a new and useful improvement in taps or nipples for earthenware containers in 1912. He designed a metal screw-off tap that was used in place of a rubber stopper. The Henderson foot warmer became one of Dorchester Potterys most popular products. The pottery made foot warmers until 1939. The pottery went out of business in 1979. The value of your foot warmer is $50-$100. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Lab Theater begins season of play readingsThe Laboratory Theater of Florida begins a new series of staged readings with Paranormal Producer, a new play by Tom Riti. The reading takes place Monday evening, Nov. 25, at Lab Theater headquarters near downtown Fort Myers. Mr. Ritis comedy follows the story of Rachel, who at agge 53 has left a secure job to follow her dream of becoming an actor. Her dream gets bleary, however, when she discovers that producers want 20-year-old bombshells instead of midlife bomb fragments. So Rachel fabricates ghosts, ghost stories and a larger-than-life psychic alter ego to become TVs next reality superstar. What she didnt plan on was a life-changing encounter with a real ghost. Directed by Anne Dodd, the staged reading will feature actors Sandy Porter, Marcus Colon, Bonnie Grossmann, Patrick Day, Mike Dinko, Taylor Adair Nave, Dave Kensler and Jonathan Best. Staged readings allow audiences to observe some of the process of writing and rewriting a play.

This show-within-ashow is complete with comic vaudeville gangsters, mistaken identities, rousing anthems, dream sequences and whole lot of spit-takes resulting in a riotous parody of 1920s screwball comedy. The script calls for seven principal men, ages 25-60, one principal man age 30-60, and five principal women, ages 25-60. Those auditioning should come prepared to sing 32 bars of a song to a recording without vocals or to the provided accompanist (bring sheet music).

Scripts of The Dr owsy Chaperone are available at the box office for 72 hours perusal with a $20 deposit. Call 263-7990 to check availability.

Myers Symphonic Mastersingers V isit www.sho p coconut p oint.com for more informatio n CONTRACT BRIDGEThe one and only chanceBY STEVE BECKERAssume you get to five clubs on the bidding shown and West leads a heart. East wins with the ace, felling your king, and returns a heart. What is your best chance for the contract? The outlook certainly is not promising. In addition to the heart already lost, it seems likely that youll have to lose a spade and a diamond. True, you also might lose a trump trick, but you should discount that possibility because East is almost sure to have the king of clubs for his opening bid. Despite this dim outlook, though, you should try to visualize a lie of the opposing cards that might give you a chance for the contract. It cant be right to just give up without a fight. This brings you to the conclusion that while there is practically no chance of West holding the ace of diamonds, there is a chance of his holding the J-10 of that suit. Accordingly, you discard a spade on the heart queen at trick two and lead the jack of clubs from dummy. When the jack wins, you continue with a trump to the ace and then lead a diamond toward the K-Q-9. After West follows low, you insert the nine, hoping it will force Easts ace. Luckily, this long shot comes through, and you later discard a spade on one of dummys diamonds to make your game. Note that even if dummys nine loses to the ten or jack, you still go down only one. A second diamond lead later will force out the ace, allowing you to avoid a spade loser.

For all her 60 years, Sookie has had a complicated relationship with her dominating and overbearing mother, a woman obsessed with heritage and status. Finding out that theyre not actually related throws Sookie for an emotional loop, as well as into confusion about her rightful place in their traditional Southern society. Unable to resist her curiosity, she begins to delve cautiously into her own past, and is introduced to a family of dreamers and daredevils with whom she has far more in common than she could ever have guessed. Learning about their lives gives her a new lens through which to see herself and evaluate her impact on the world, and may even give her the courage to finally step out of her mothers shadow and into the sun. This humorous, easygoing novel is a smooth read, constructed as a series of connected vignettes that roll gently back and forth through the decades between Sookies quest and her birth familys saga. Some of the most fascinating tales concern the littleknown history of the WASPs, or Women Air Force Service Pilots, who provided homefront support to the Army Air Force during World War II. These admirable women performed their dangerous jobs in the face of rampant sexism for little recognition, knocking down barriers for all who came after. Likewise, the all-girl filling station of the title is a wartime phenomenon, active only for a relatively short time during the century-long scope of this novel, but looming large in the story of this indomitable family. For each generation, its a symbol of fortitude under adversity, and of having the courage to defy convention and meet life with open arms. Promenade Bonita Bay On the Plaza 3rd Street S.

Daily competing on The Voice. Of course, I was bummed when she was eliminated. Can you tell me what shell do next? Tara B., via e-mailA: I, too, was excited to see E.G.s great performances on The Voice a few weeks back, as Im sure were a lot of Pee-Wees Big Adventure, Rugrats and The Powerpuff Girls fans. E.G. was thrilled to get the chance to show off her singing chops, as she told me recently. It was so much fun. All of these people where wondering who the heck E.G. Daily is. The same woman who does the theme song to Two and a Half Men? The same woman who was Dottie in Pee-Wees Big Adventure? The same woman who sang on Saturday Night Live in the s? The same woman who guest-starred on Friends as Phoebes next songwriting partner? It was like everything came together for me on that show the day I did my blind audition and sang Breathe. That was the day for me where, as a 51-year-old woman, everything just popped together. It was magic. To keep up on E.G.s career, head over to www.egdaily.com and check out what she has in the works. Just a note to let you know the premiere dates of two shows that just happen to be two of my favorite series, both of which air on PBS. The first is Downton Abbey, which premieres its fourth series on Sunday, Jan. 5, at 9 p.m., and concludes its eight-week run on Feb. 23. And Masterpiece Mystery fans rejoice: Sherlock returns (along with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) from its shocking series-two cliffhanger for a third series of three 90-minute episodes beginning Jan. 19 at 10 p.m. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Caf Alfredo, Galleria Shoppes at Vanderbilt, 2359 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 431-8605 Boisterous yet stylish, Caf Alfredo offers white linens, well-executed dishes crafted in an open kitchen and reasonable prices. A Margherita pizza billed as personal size was ample enough for two and had a crisp, thin crust that held a tasty blend of fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. Clams casino and mussels in white wine sauce are also good starts to a meal here. Shrimp fra diavolo was satisfyingly zesty and the veal chop asparagus Parmesan was large with a liberal application of asparagus, marinara and mozzarella. The standout was the lamb shank over pappardelle, featuring fall-off-the-bone tender meat in a savory brown sauce. The tiramisu was delicious and ample for sharing as well. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2013 The Chapel Grill, 811 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 206-4310 This lovely restaurant in the 65-yearold former First Baptist Church is packing the pews with a wide-ranging menu that manages to put a new spin on some familiar dishes. The calamari, for instance, is strewn with chorizo sausage and tempura-fried julienned carrots. Marinara would be too mundane for such a concoction, so the chef dreamed up a delicious mango-rum sauce that complements the calamari nicely. Seafood or steak, Chapel Grill seems blessed for success. A New York strip was perfectly grilled to mediumrare yet achieved a crusty exterior that most home grillers would envy. The well-marbled 14-ounce cut was dry-aged for 21 days, which imparted a noticeable richness. Red rock cod Florentine was a hefty fillet with thick flakes of moist white meat within its crisp oven-baked Parmesan crust. Inventive cocktails like a vodka gimlet with balsamic-laced strawberries and fresh basil, or a bourbon highball spiked with The Kings Ginger liqueur and a kiss of cloves are sinfully indulgent. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2012 Docs Beach House, 27908 Hickory Blvd., Bonita Springs; 992-6444 One of Southwest Floridas oldest sand-scoured institutions, Docs Beach House isnt likely to win any culinary contests or rave reviews. The food can be hit and miss, and the menu can vary depending on the vagaries of supply or the competency of the pantry keeper. But it does have several things in its favor: convenience for beachgoers who can bop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner without bothering to get cleaned up; a terrific view of the Gulf of Mexico from upstairs; and relatively inexpensive food considering its prized real estate. Considering all that, this modest, casual restaurant established in 1987 is good enough for a daytime beach break or sunset drink and nosh. Appetizers are mostly typical fried bar food, such as pretty good calamari and pretty bland conch fritters that were mostly breading. Better were a perfectly broiled grouper sandwich and a grilled mahi-mahi that was moist and flaky and simply seasoned with salt and pepper. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2012 Masa, Mercato, 9123 Strada Place, Naples; 598-0887Masa successfully bridges oldworld Mexican cooking and modern approaches and ingredients. Expect to find a range from traditional to trendy: richly flavored cocoa-infused chicken mole, say, as well as a ceviche pairing snapper and shrimp with bits of fried plantain and diced mango. Even chili rellenos gets a new twist courtesy of a roasted jalapeno filled with crumbled chorizo, apples and Chihuahua cheese. A sampler platter of tacos, sopes and tamales would be a welcome addition; the tamales alone were redolent of fresh-ground corn and came with raveworthy frijoles churros studded with pork. For dessert you cant go wrong with lush tres leches cake or churros dipped in molten chocolate. Masas modern Mexican food, stylish atmosphere and stellar service will leave you wanting mas. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2013 Tierneys Tavern, 799 Walkerbilt Road, Naples; 591-3837 Owners of The Bay House have rolled out a new, more casual concept in what used to be an expansive bar next to the restaurant. At Tierneys Tavern, you can savor similarly Southern-inspired and equally well-executed food for much less money. Entrees top out at $24, and its possible to dine well for much less. The menus coastal cuisine spans a broad range, from the North Atlantic to Carolina Low Country, around the Florida peninsula and up the Gulf to New Orleans. The Southern Collection is a good way to sample a range of appetizers, including Charleston crab dip, pimento cheese, house-made pickles. The shrimp and grits lacked spunk even with horseradish cream and diced andouille sausage; but the Sea BLT layers of arugula, fried green tomatoes and fresh seafood salad sprinkled with roasted corn and crumbled bacon would delight any discerning palate.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 21-27, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINENew Fords Garage in Estero passes test driveFords Garage rolled out its latest model this fall, a sprawling indooroutdoor venue at Miromar Outlets in Estero thats already left the locations previous failed restaurants most recently The Tipsy Tarpon in the dust. During visits for lunch and dinner, we found the staff firing on all cylinders to meet the needs of the steady stream of diners who just happened to be shopping at the outlet stores or who had sought out the place based on knowledge of the Fords Garages in Fort Myers and Cape Coral. Both of those locations are thriving, but we hadnt checked under the mini-chains hood since the original spot opened in the River District in 2012. So off we went to kick the tires in Estero, first at lunchtime and then a week later for dinner. The design concept of retro service station remains consistent throughout the locations, and its well executed from the antique chassis hanging over the hammeredcopper bar down to the oil rag napkins rolled up in O-rings. With brick-and-mortar walls and rough wood paneling, theres not much to absorb noise, but this location seems to achieve lower volume than the others due to its spaciousness and open floor plan. Fords offers 25 beers and ciders on tap as well as too many bottled brews to count and a selection of beer-tinis such as Hop in my Gin, a combination of Hendricks Gin, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Cigar City Jai Alai IPA and grapefruit and pineapple juice. Doesnt sound appetizing to me, but to each his own. We enjoyed pints of Breckenridge Vanilla Porter and Cigar City Espresso ($4.50 on special). Getting down to business, the snacks and bar bites portion of the menu includes eight options ranging from deep-fried soft pretzels with cheese dip to the ubiquitous ahi tuna with Asian slaw. I liked the deep-fried pickle slices on a previous visit, but they seemed more of a novelty back then. Instead, we decided on Firestones shrimp ($10) and pulled pork sliders ($9) from another section of the menu. If youve had the boom-boom shrimp at Bonefish Grill or any of its copycats, youve had Firestones shrimp: deepfried shrimp tossed in a spicy red sauce. This version wasnt as kicky as some weve had, but a flaming stripe of sriracha on the plate added some heat. The 10 large shellfish were deftly fried to create a crunchy crust without overcooking the interior. The diminutive pork rolls contained juicy, smoky meat with a crisp pickle slice for saltiness; I would have liked a splash more barbecue sauce on the meat, but wetness is a matter of personal taste in barbecue matters. Appetizers were served and cleared quickly by various staff members. They appeared to be primed to keep the tables turning for maximum sales. However, later on the check arrived without a suggestion of dessert, and once we ordered our apple pie the reconfigured bill took a long time to come back again. During our lunch visit, we sampled a couple of the burgers of fame named after local people and institutions of note. The Dunk City burger (a $9.95 bacon cheeseburger with barbecue sauce) was a nod to the nearby Florida Gulf Coast University campus, as was the Joe Dooley (a $10.95 bacon cheeseburger with fried egg, arugula and pico de gallo) honoring the schools new mens basketball coach. Both burgers were a mouthful and a handful, with toppings sliding around and creating a mess. They also were cooked past the medium wed asked for, with nary a blush of pink within. Ive had burgers correctly cooked as ordered at the downtown Fort Myers location, so this might have been a fluke. But a restaurant staking a claim on its burgers should be able to deliver consistently. For our dinner visit, we tried an alternative burger and one of several macaroni and cheese variations. The menu also offers salads that can be amped up as entrees with additions of chicken, beef, shrimp or tuna; the comfort food section includes a churrasco steak, meat loaf and fish n chips. Tuna Me Up ($13.50) managed to get right what the burgers got wrong: The slab of tuna was perfectly cooked still pink and moist. Topping it off: crunchy Asian slaw, tomato, cucumber, cucumber-wasabi mayo and boom boom sauce. Frankly, one sauce would be sufficient for a sandwich, but we liked the extra flavor kick. Accompanying French fries were thick, golden, crisp and not too oily just like on previous visits. The lobster mac n cheese ($14) did not disappoint, either. There was plenty of succulent claw meat and other chunks scattered among the curlicue cavatappi pasta, which was thoroughly coated in creamy, cheddary sauce. Every time I dug in, expecting that Id enjoyed my last morsel, another bit of shellfish would present itself. Dessert seemed superfluous after two hearty courses, but we managed to polish off a small, individual hot apple pie ($6) diced Granny Smiths in a flaky, free-form crust. The people behind Fords Garage appear to have a well-thought-out business model. With a more consistent execution, their food just might outpace the increasingly crowded field of fancy burger joints.

NC21 FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com II 2014 Newcomers SWFL 21 N RECENT MONTHS, A NUMBER OF RESTAURANTS HAVE opened or reinvented themselves in ways that make them worthy of a visit simply to see how imaginative people reinvent a space and how that changes the dining experience. The prize for most dramatic makeover this year goes to Chapel Grill, formerly the First Bap tist Church on 7th Avenue South in Naples. The 65-year-old landmark, at which evangelist Billy Graham once preached, closed in 1975, reopened as a medical center, then closed again in 2010. Stephen Fleischer bought the building in 2011 and set out to restore it to its former glory, complete with vaulted ceil ings, a steeple and chimes that sound on the hour. Chef Jorge Nolasco and his staff serve an amalgam of American fare, specializing in seafood and steaks along with a wealth of liquid refreshment. A close second for best renovation goes to The Hut and Peace Tropical Gardens in Buckingham, east of Fort Myers. This propertys development began some 80 years ago when Edwin Peace brought his young bride, a Tahitian princess named Ramira Stephagee, there to live. He began experimenting with tropical plants and even hosted visits from Fort Myers snowbird Thomas Edison, who shared Mr. Peaces passion for plants. Edwin and Ramira Peaces children sold the property in the late 1960s to a woman who turned it into a tropi cal restaurant. The Hut was a popular spot for weddings and special events, but eventually lost favor as the Fort Myers restaurant scene cranked up. A couple ofICOURTESY OF BHA! BHA! PERSIAN BISTRO Bha! Bha!

NC22 22 Newcomers SWFL 2014 II www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYVANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY IMAGE COURTESY OF MISTO BAR & GRILL halfhearted efforts to revive it were short-lived. Then entrepreneur Tommy Lee Cook, owner of the Buckingham Blues Bar, decided to restore it, lavishing it with money and love. It reopened late last year. Mr. Cook has done a remarkable job of restoration, replacing the many boardwalks with sturdy new ones, reviving the gardens to their former lushness and div vying up the big building into four venues, ranging from fine dining at The Hut to The Shack Out Back, which dispenses snacks and beverages on the go. Executive Chef Mark Wilson makes just about every thing from scratch. The menu proclaims that every thing is fresh and a recent meal there backed up that claim nicely. A sampling of the menu includes fried green tomatoes, Everglades gator soup, wet-aged prime rib, blackened grouper and coconut shrimp. Go at night for live music or by day for a great view of the gardens with their languid pools of water. Other noteworthy newcomers include: Bha! Bha! Persian Bistro, which operated at the Pavilion Shopping Center in Naples for 15 years, has moved up to a lovely brick building on 5th Avenue South. The menu still features many old favorites, such as plum lamb, kabobs and haleem bademjune (a heav enly eggplant and lentil concoction), but now you can have a saffron lemongrass martini with your meal in a setting thats as seductive as the food. Misto, which means varied in Italian, is Jorge Laneses new Cape Coral restaurant. He has trans formed the former pizza joint into a handsome dining destination serving Italian fare and a variety of other dishes. Mr. Lanese makes virtually everything served there, including the chorizo and desserts. Sasses has been an in spot for lovers of Italian fare served in huge portions for two decades, but Chef Josef Zimmerman recently bought it and is giving it a fresh new menu that includes wood-fired pizza, cing hiale (papardelle pasta with wild boar ragout, root veg etables, Barolo wine and herbs), and a pumpkin cake that is not to be missed. Santhinos is a Punta Gorda establishment that serves Mediterranean and Peruvian dishes. Its not new, but it is somewhat hidden in a strip shopping center a bit south of downtown. Its worth ferreting out for its excellent ceviche, shrimp in yellow Peruvian pepper sauce, reliable Italian fare, a friendly staff and live jazz on Friday nights. Bha! Bha!

NC36 36 Newcomers SWFL 2014 II www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY OUTHWEST FLORIDA RESIDENTS LIVE IN A SUNspangled corner of the world that attracts folks from around the world. All of Southwest Florida, from Marco Island to the beaches off Sarasota, is a haven from cold and dreary places, from lands of strife and out-of-control crime. The lure is more than warm weather, sandy beaches and blue skies. Those amenities cant be discounted. Not for a moment, of course. Southwest Florida, though, bursts with destinations and reasons to visit. Its about golf courses and fish ing and birding. Its fine dining along Fifth Avenue South in Naples and in downtown Punta Gorda and places in between. Its three spring training ballparks that attract tens of thousands of baseball fans every February and March. Folks come from far away to golf, swim, boat and go a-birding, if theres such a word. But for locals, there are many nearby destinations worth a drive that dont require airfare. Many Naples residents have never, perhaps, visited Boca Grande, an enclave of tony homes and lovely res taurants on Gasparilla Island in Lee County. How many Port Charlotte residents have attended plays at Florida Rep in downtown Fort Myers? How often do Sanibel residents venture all the way to the Mercato in Naples to shop, dine and watch movies in the sumptuous Sil verspot Cinema? So many places. So many destinations. Cape Harbour NESTLED IN THE MIDDLE OF LEE COUNTY, SITUATED IN CAPE Coral and across the Caloosahatchee from south Fort Myers, Cape Harbour provides more than a place to dock boats and quick access to the Gulf of Mexico. The abundance of things to do is clear from clicking on Cape Harbours website, www.capeharbour.com. There, the website proclaims, the place is all about the boating.S COURTESY PHOTO Cape Harbour is all about the dining and lifestyle.OFF THE BEATEN TRACK

NC37 FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com II 2014 Newcomers SWFL 37COURTESY PHOTOThen a slide show on the web site advises that Cape Harbour is all about the shopping. And so it goes. Cape Harbour is all about the dining and its also all about the lifestyle. So, its clear Cape Harbour is about all those things for those lucky enough to reside there. Yes, there is a marina at Cape Harbour, one only 3 miles from the Gulf. What would a place with Harbour in its name be without a marina? The marina includes a place to store boats called, appropriately enough, The Boat House. There are also 76 wet slips. Theres also places for human beings, lots of them in two 15-story condo tow ers. And a fairly new addition to the community are the Funky Fish Houses, which are described as Key Weststyle cottages. Although the homes are private, much of Cape Harbour is open to the public. That includes restaurants and shops and a farmers market. All right there in Cape Coral and a short drive from Fort Myers. (Directions: From U.S. 41 in south Fort Myers, go west on College Parkway and over the Cape Coral Bridge. The road turns into Cape Coral Parkway. Stay there until South Chiquita and turn left. Then a right on Cape Har bour Drive.)Goodland DOWN NEARLY TO THE SOUTHERNMOST POINT OF WHAT COUL D be considered Southwest Florida is the hamlet of Good land on the southeast corner of Marco Island. The community consists of 256 acres, a tad smaller than 279-acre Lakes Regional Park in south Fort Myers. Goodlands population was listed as 267 in the 2010 U.S. Census. That means every resident could fit in the 326seat Blackburn Hall, the Sugden Community Theatres main venue in downtown Naples. The towns tidy size and quaintness are part of the charm of Goodland, a place where streets sport names such as Sunset Court, East Mango Avenue and Angler Drive. One of Goodlands best known residents died in 2012, but his legacy continues. Stan Gober, 86 when he passed away, owned Stans Idle Hour Seafood Restaurant, a slice of Old Florida where the menu includes conch fritters and gator bites. Yall aint in Kansas anymore when you dine at Stans Idle House. Mr. Gober also started the popular Goodland Mullet Festival in 1985. His memorial service was attended by hundreds of friends, who came to pay respects to a man who helped put the Good in Goodland, down there nearly at the end of Southwest Florida. (Directions: South on I-75, take exit 101 and get on S.R. 951 toward Marco Island. Keep right at the fork and follow signs for Rookery Bay Reserve/Edison College/ Naples/Marco Island and merge onto Collier Boulevard/ C.R/ 951. Turn left on S.R. 90/U.S. 41. Go about eight miles and turn right onto San Marco Road. Go about 6.6 miles and then left toward Goodland Drive and then left on Goodland Drive.EnglewoodEnglewood is a singular place in two counties, strad dling the Charlotte and Sarasota county line about 50 miles north of downtown Fort Myers. Englewood touts itself as the Gem of the Suncoast. It is a jewel of a place much closer to the Gulf of Mexico than to Interstate 75. Although Englewood doesnt have easy Interstate access the town is within 90 miles of three airports, Tampa, Sarasota and Southwest Florida International. To get there by car from U.S. 41 turn west on S.R. 776 and head toward the Gulf, go past Charlotte Sports Park and drive a few more miles. And youll be in Englewood. The town of 14,863 is near another gem, Manasota Key, a barrier island with beautiful homes and a canopy road. Englewood offers a bit of everything from Stump Pass State Park to Catanias Winery and the Lemon Bay Playhouse. Downtown Englewood offers a small town feel that is clearly smaller than downtown Punta Gorda, Fort Myers and Naples but has some of the same pleasures. Vino Loco is a place for wine and live music. There are places to shop such as Dearborn Street Jewelry and places to eat such as the Mango Bistro. Englewood also boasts the Lemon Bay Chord Company, a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Thats yet another reason Englewood is proud to call itself the Gem of the Suncoast. (Directions: From I-75, take Exit 164and go west on U.S. 17 toward Punta Gorda. Then left on S.R. 35/U.S. 17. Then north on U.S. 51 and then left n W. River Road, which will lead you to Dearborn Street in Englewood.) Stans Idle Hour Seafood Restaurant in Goodland is a slice of Old Florida.

NC38 38 Newcomers SWFL 2014 II www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY OUTHWEST FLORIDA HAS SOME OF THE BEST ECO tourism in the world. Thanks to its natural beaches, slender barrier islands and wild life-laden backbays, you can get up close and personal with nature. Plus, its inland locations offer eco-diversity like youd find surfing through Discovery Channel. Whether youre on vacation or live here, being an eco-tourist is made easier because of the highquality eco tour providers throughout Southwest Flori da, many of which belong to the statewide Florida Soci ety for Ethical Ecotourism. They emphasize responsible trips to natural areas that conserve the environment, rather than impact it. Besides feeling good about that, you get to take home an outdoor experience worth bragging about. Here are five eco-tours that showcase Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties from the freshwater wonder land of the Everglades to the magical saltwater expans es of the regions estuaries. Everglades day tripEverglades Day Safari is a Fort Myers-Naples com pany that provides one of the best full-day, guided eco-tours of the Everglades. Each tour is designed to explore the four main ecosystems that make up the Glades: the sawgrass prairie, mangrove estuary, cypress swamp and pine savannah. The cool thing about this tour is you dont have to fumble with your GPS to get yourself to the Everglades. For example, there are four Lee County-based pickup stops in Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach and Estero. Each trip includes an airboat ride, a boat cruise into the Ten Thousand Islands, a lunch (gator appetizers, of course), a drive through Big Cypress Preserve and a nature walk. www.ecosafari.com; 800-472-3069 or 239-472-1559 Breakfast eco-tourHow bout a little wildlife with your morning OJ?
