FOR THE UNDULY IMAGINATIVE, PERHAPS, THE SPECTER OF Winston Churchill may haunt the grand chambers of state government in Tallahassee next week. Thats when 160 legislators 40 senators and 120 representatives prepare for an eight-week round of bill-making, deal-wrangling, money-spending and bipartisan gamesmanship that shapes the way 19 million residents live in Florida. They call it the legislative session. It begins Tuesday morning, March 4.

Scan to see Dr. Lam talk about foot & ankle trauma and the latest in technology COMMENTARY The treacherous Fibahatchee RiverThe state legislative session is about to begin. Although you may know that, you probably dont know what a state legislative session really is or how it works, do you? Of course you dont, because youre trying to earn an honest living. But Im not, so I can tell you. Starting March 4, 160 men and women known as representatives and senators will gather in Tallahassee for eight weeks. They represent each of Floridas 67 counties along with the distant planets of Neptune, Uranus and Miami. Upon arriving in the state capitol, each legislator is immediately offered foie gras and champagne by the states wealthiest lobbyists for big oil, big sugar, big tobacco, big casinos, big pharma and big arms manufacturers, along with 36 big others. Then they are placed in ankle bracelets monitored by the National Security Agency. The NSA, under four-star Army Gen. Keith Alexander, is trying to ensure that these powerful men and women do not threaten our traditional way of life by scheduling clandestine meetings with terrorists who actually want to save the Everglades and limit the scope of Second Amendment rights, at the same time. History has shown that if left unmonitored, some politicians will work to prevent Floridians from exercising the two fundamental rights accorded to them by God and the Founding Fathers: one, to build highrise condominiums on beaches and plant oil wells in the southern Everglades; and two, to mount .50-caliber machine guns on their vehicles and stand their ground against life-threatening government scrub jays, government gopher tortoises, government panthers, government health-care advocates and gay married couples, government or otherwise. On maps of the Sunshine State, especially cloudy ones, Tallahassee is located near a town called Tellabigone, which is not far from a river known as the Fibahatchee, which actually threads its way southward out of eastern Tennessee and Georgia. The Fibahatchee runs right through the middle of the state capitol building, where architects and engineers no doubt harnessed its powers to help flush toilets in the 66 public and very necessary restrooms. From there the Fibahatchee traverses the peninsula, finally emptying unfiltered into Florida Bay just south of Everglades City, where it is widely recognized as a major source of the pollution sl owly killing the bay. Now that you know the setting, let me offer an opinion: I firmly believe our elected leaders will always say the right thing even if its really the wrong thing, because theyre so nice, and their hair is perfect. Take State Senate Majority Leader Lizbeth Benacquisto, a Republican who started her public life in Wellington. Then she met Fort Myers attorney Bruce Strayhorn, who wears cowboy boots, hunts big game from Montana to Mozambique or places close by, and ran Hillary Clintons Southwest Florida presidential campaign leading up to the 2008 election. That campaign against Barack Obama can best be summed up as close, but no cigar. She married him, moved west and won the election to her current position as the state senator for District 30. But all that is small change. Sen. Benacquisto has her sights set on the April 22 Republican primary to become the District 19 candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives. Along with Curt Clawson, Michael Dreikorn and former state Rep. Paige Kreegel, she wants to replace disgraced U.S. Congressman Trey Radel, who resigned late last month. One thing is perfectly clear: Sen. Benacquisto understands her constituents. Some of them. Which is why she recently posted this apocryphal quote by George Washington for her friends on Facebook: Happy President's Day! Good day to honor our founders commitment to individual liberty. Great example: 2nd Amendment. As George Washington once said, Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American peoples liberty, teeth and keystone under independence." Aint that the truth? Well no, actually. Its not George Washingtons truth, as FOX4 television reporter Warren Wright, a former Fort Myers city councilman, pointed out in a story. If you look up President Washingtons supposed words, the Mount Vernon website tells you this: This quotation does not show up in any of Washingtons writings, nor does any closely related quote. When Mr. Wright asked Sen. Benacquisto where the quote came from, somebody on her staff responded in writing: Lizbeth was paying homage to our first president and the wisdom of the founders when they enshrined the right to bear arms in the bill of rights of our constitution. She is a strong defender of these rights. The quotation was found in a book and, now we know, like the cherry tree and throwing the silver dollar across the Potomac river, it is more folklore than fact." What book? Well, nobody knows. Her staff didnt say, and an online Wikipedia entry lists the quote as spurious never actually utter ed by anyone, until wrongly attributed to President Washington by someone. Or some two. Thus, the quote is so much more folklore than fact that it falls into a special category known variously as Balderdash, or Hogwash, or in some circles, Bullpucky. In the meantime, George Washington probably wouldnt have appreciated this kind of homage from Sen. Benacquisto. Heres something President Washington really did say, once, in his Farewell Address of 1796: I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy. But hey, what did he know? He wasnt always a nice guy and his hair wasnt always perfect, even if his wig appeared so. Sure, he crossed the Delaware River in the middle of a cold night, once, and built a big house on the Potomac River in Virginia. So what? He never had to negotiate the treacherous Fibahatchee River in Florida, like the politicians of today.

Posed this question by the United Auto Workers, employees of Volkswagens Chattanooga, Tenn., plant answered that they dont want to be on the side of a union that is slipping into irrelevance. Once a 1.5 millionmember behemoth, the UAW has seen its membership decline to a fourth of what it was in the late 1970s. Everything had lined up for it in Chattanooga. Not only was VW officially neutral, it tilted the playing field in favor of the union. The company allowed it to campaign in the plant a major advantage while opponents were excluded. The media was praising Volkswagens enlightened European attitude toward organized labor and celebrating imminent victory for the union. Then the workers had their say. The UAW reportedly spent $5 million in the course of a campaign that lasted two years, and lost by a 712 to 636 vote. The motto of the old American Federation of Labor was a fair days wage for a fair days work. VW workers felt they already had it. Wages in Chattanooga are comparable to those of new hires of the Detroit automakers, roughly $20 an hour. The unionization of the workforce would make it possible for VW to form a European-style works council of management and workers to make decisions about the plant. But workers already felt amply consulted by management. Even UAW Secretary-Treasurer Dennis Williams attested, Volkswagens a class act. This is hardly the Battle of the Overpass, when company thugs beat UAW officials trying to organize Ford in the 1930s. This is a car company putting out a welcome mat for union organizers who still couldnt manage to organize. Florence Reece wrote, Come all of you good workers/Good news to you Ill tell/Of how the good old union/Has come in here to dwell. But the workers in Chattanooga didnt consider it such good news. Bob King, the head of the UAW, thinks they are guilty of false consciousness. If only they werent so viciously misled by outside agitators, such as Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the former mayor of Chattanooga who helped to woo VW to the city in the first place. He rightly said that the UAW is in a death spiral. Kings union was found alone in a room in 2009 with two almost dead car companies. After the UAW did so much to chase automaking out of Detroit with unsustainable labor costs and ridiculous work rules, it is no wonder that workforces havent welcomed it into the South, where right-to-work states have become alluring destinations for foreign car companies. For the longest time, the business model of the UAW has been to take its members dues and funnel them to friendly Democratic politicians. Unless it breaks into the South, the union knows its all but doomed. It may feel this institutional imperative keenly, but workers in good manufacturing jobs who owe nothing to this self-serving dinosaur from the 20th century dont. They can be forgiven for wondering which side the union is on.

The merger must be approved by both the Justice Department and the FCC. Given the financial and political power of Comcast, and the Obama administrations miserable record of protecting the public interest, the time to speak out and organize is now. This is just such a far-reaching deal, it should be dead on arrival when it gets to the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission for approval, Michael Copps told me days after the merger announcement. Copps was a commissioner on the FCC from 2001 to 2011, one of the longest-serving commissioners in the agencys history. Now he leads the Media and Democracy Reform Initiative at Common Cause. This is the whole shooting match, he said. Its broadband. Its broadcast. Its content. Its distribution. Its the medium and the message. Its telecom, and its media, too. Back in 2011, when Comcast sought regulatory approval of its proposed acquisition of NBC Universal (NBCU), Copps was the sole no vote out of the five FCC commissioners. Copps is not the only former FCC commissioner with an opinion on the merger. Meredith Attwell Baker served briefly there, from 2009 to 2011. President Barack Obama appointed Baker, a Republican, to maintain the traditional party balance on the FCC. Baker was a big supporter of the Comcast-NBCU merger. It surprised many, however, when she abruptly resigned her FCC commission seat to go work for you guessed it Comcast. She was named senior vice president for governmental affairs for NBCU, just four months after voting to approve the merger. As for the regulators, the news website Republic Report revealed that the head of the Justice Departments Antitrust Division, William Baer, was a lawyer representing NBC during the merger with Comcast, and Maureen Ohlhausen, a commissioner on the Federal Trade Commission, provided legal counsel for Comcast before joining the commission. If you wonder how President Obama feels about the issue, look at who he appointed to be the new chairperson of the FCC: Tom Wheeler, who was for years a top lobbyist for both the cable and wireless industries. A leading organization on media policy in the U.S., Free Press, issued a statement following the announcement of the proposed merger. Craig Aaron, the groups president, said: No one woke up this morning wishing their cable company was bigger or had more control over what they could watch or download. But that along with higher bills is the reality theyll face tomorrow unless the Department of Justice and the FCC do their jobs and block this merger. Free Press hopes millions will reach out to the FCC and the Justice Department to voice disapproval of the Comcast/Time Warner merger.In Congress, one of the most vocal opponents is someone who actually knows a bit about the TV industry, Minnesota Sen. Al Franken. Franken rose to national prominence as a comedian and writer on the early years of NBCs Saturday Night Live. He clearly doesnt find the prospect of a larger Comcast very funny. Cable rates have risen significantly over the last two decades, and my constituents express frustration at being squeezed by unacceptably high cable bills every month. Many consumers would switch cable providers if only they had a viable option to do so, he wrote in a letter to the FCC, Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.Coincident with the attempted merger is a renewed fight over net neutrality, the basic rules governing how the Internet operates, especially whether Internet service providers such as Comcast, Time Warner, AT&T and Verizon should be able to favor some websites over others. Should there be rules that allow people equal access to the website of a small human-rights organization in Russia or a group of Occupy activists in New York, as, say, the websites of WalMart or the National Rifle Association? A growing fear among Internet activists is that the U.S. regulatory system, beholden to lobbyists and corporate donors, will forfeit net neutrality, creating what Michael Copps calls the cable-ization of the Internet. The public has confronted monstrous mergers before, and blocked them. So, too, have they faced corporate attempts to stifle the fundamental freedom of the Internet. Freedom of speech, freedom to connect and communicate, is the lifeblood of a democracy. The fight to preserve and expand the diversity and vibrancy of our media system is one that cannot be left to bought-out regulators and corporate lobbyists.

PAGE 6 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 EXILIS is the fastest, most powerful aesthetic treatment system available for tightening, shaping and ghting wrinkles. We can help.Patrick M. Flaharty, (239) 415-7576 We are proud to offer a new non-surgical breakthrough. Before After Elaine Mayrides, the energetic and capable executive director of Literacy Volunteers of Collier County, comes from a big Greek family and has always felt strongly that people should be given an opportunity to learn English. Her grandmother was left a widow with seven children to raise in her early 40s. She didnt speak English very well and had to rely on her two eldest children to support her. For someone who is comfortable with different cultures, who loves the English language and who understands what it feels like to want a better life in this country, working with Literacy Volunteers is the perfect fit. Elaine grew up in Bayside, N.Y., in a neighborhood that had representation from all backgrounds and ethnicities, from Italian and Irish to Chinese and Russian. We were used to hearing different accents, different languages, and we had the opportunities to observe different cultures and enjoy food from different countries, she says. After graduation from public school in Bayside, Elaine entered City University of New York at the age of 16. She took advantage of the many colleges within the university, taking classes throughout the city. She loved books and literature and thought about being an English major. She also considered Spanish and English literature, before settling on a degree in speech and theater. She went on to receive a masters in public administration at NYU, where her favorite class was an accounting class in which she never wrote a number. Rather, students were given financial statements and asked to describe what could have happened in the company, and how and why those numbers reflected the circumstances. The answer to most situations, she recalls: It depends. The answer to most questions in life, she learned, involves some variation of it depends. After graduating, Elaine became an administrator in a neuroscience institute in Edison, N.J. She and her husband Bruce had a beautiful home in Bergen County with a swimming pool only their golden retriever had the time to enjoy. When friends who bought a home on Marco Island convinced the Mayrides to do the same, Elaine figured her parents would enjoy spending time there while she and Bruce were still working. Her father, however, died before ever having the chance to see the island. Deciding that life was too short, Elaine decided they should make the move fulltime. Bruce commuted to and from New Jersey for three years before they sold the New Jersey house and made Marco their permanent home. After not working for a couple of years, Elaine missed the sense of involvement and went to work at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which raised money mostly for research. When she realized she wanted to actually see the results of what she was doing on a daily basis, she moved to Literacy Volunteers of Collier County and has been there ever since, thriving on the sense of joy and accomplishment that comes with each milestone achieved by a client on the journey toward literacy. Bob Harden is the producer and host of The Bob Harden Show, airing from 78 a.m. weekdays at b t i f w a bobHARDEN PROFILES IN PARADISEGreek roots inspire a passion for literacy Talking points with Elaine MayridesSomething your mother was always right about: Oh, my goodness so much. She used to say that she would be more conspicuous by her absence. She was right. I miss her every day. Mentor: I had one boss who was a lovely person, but a terrible administrator. For years, I would think, What would xxx do? and then I would do just the opposite. What would you be doing if you werent doing this? Im not sure, but I know I would NOT be playing golf. One thing on your bucket list: The idea of a bucket list is too depressing to me. Guilty pleasure: Watching Dancing with the Stars on TV. Pet peeve: My pet peeve changes all the time. Right now its the use of the expression No problem when someone says Thank you. Whatever happened to Youre welcome? Next vacation destination: Hawaii. Weve never been there. It seems a little redundant to me, living on Marco Island, but my husband wants to go, so well go. Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I could sing. I am, unfortunately, the self-annointed president of the Loud, Off-key and Con dent Club. What makes you laugh? I love wordplays and absurd situations. Jokes leave me cold, and I can never remember them to tell them, anyway. Last book you read: I usually have a few books going. Right now, its And the Mountains Echoed, Crazy Rich Asians, Lets Explore Diabetes with Owls and Twitter Marketing for Beginners. Hidden talent: I have no talents, hidden or otherwise. Zero. I cant sing a note, and I dance like a Clydesdale. Its terrible. What are you most proud of? There will never be a Behind the Music television show about me (but) I went to school, got good grades, was good to my parents, made good decisions and have stayed married for 33 years. Im pretty proud of that. First job: My rst real job job during college was working in Roy Cohns law of ce. It was interesting. Enough said. What the Paradise Coast really needs: For years I said the food needed to improve, but I cant really say that anymore. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: The weather, the weather and the weather.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 It was Mr. Churchill, after all, who pointed out that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried. Twelve men and women together eight representatives and four senators representing the counties of Southwest Florida all or in part will put Mr. Churchills axiom to the test. Here, Florida Weekly offers a brief glance at the 2014 legislative session through the eyes of elected leaders willing to talk about major issues on which they will vote. Every member of the Southwest Florida delegation was invited to express his or her views. Some responded at length, some responded with brevity or merely to some of the issue questions, and some chose not to respond. For readers who may wish to contact members of the delegation, we list email addresses and telephone numbers for each, with this caveat: emails to many legislators may go unread unless correspondents follow up with phone calls to staff. We asked legislators to weigh in on seven issues: Medicaid expansion: yes or no? This may be one of the most costly questions in the state of Florida, one of 23 states whose legislature has so far rejected federal money to medically insure an estimated million low-income adults who do not fall under the umbrella of Affordable Care. Starting this year and for the next two years, the federal government would pay 100 percent of that bill, then reduce its contribution gradually until 2020, when it would continue to pay 90 percent in perpetuity. State government employee retirement plans: Should legislators cut back the current plans, change them or leave them alone? Cleaning up fresh water: How best to proceed? Another immensely costly question. Gambling: Should it be expanded in Florida? Education: House speaker Rep. Will Weatherford favors in-state tuition rates to Florida universities for qualified undocumented immigrants. Yes or no? Red-light cameras: Yes or no? A state minimum wage: Should legislators require that the state minimum match the federal minimum wage for all employees? Unlike some other legislative sessions, this one will play out against the backdrop of an election year in which, traditionally, politicians step carefully around controversial issues. And this year (the 2014 fiscal year, beginning July 1), the state has a budget surplus of more than $1 billion, which is why Gov. Rick Scotts proposed budget of $74.2 billion the highest in the states history if legislators pass it during the session can include both gives and takes, he says. For example, Gov. Scott proposes tax cuts for manufacturers, a sales-tax suspension for back-to-school buying and reduced vehicle registration fees among others, amounting to about $500 million. (Hes named his 2014 budget the Its Your Money Tax Cut Budget.) On the other hand, he proposes increased spending for education on every level, money for cancer research at the states major institutions, and almost $200 million for Everglades restoration and environmentally significant land purchases designed to help solve Floridas water troubles. Critics call some of that ironic, given the governors massive cuts to environmental spending and education in 2011, which they claim have caused some of the problems the state now faces. And even his allies in the Legislature warn that they may only accept some of his budget proposals which is par for the course. Here, then, are the views of our delegates as they enter the spring session, keeping one eye on the issues and the other on a November election. SOUTHWEST FLORDA HOUSE:Matt CaldwellR-District 79 Medicaid expansion: The way its been pitched doesnt give us the flexibility to fix our needs, but were hopeful we can pursue an alternative. As for losing money already paid into the federal government by Florida taxpayers, if we were talking about train or road funding, thats a legitimate argument, that other states will compete for the funds. But Medicaid is tied to the person. The money will stay in the federal budget until we find some other way The House alternative plan would have given these folks a subsidy, private insurance, which is much better than traditional Medicaid the outcomes are better. We thought we could do that in an affordable matter but the ACA does not allow us to do that. State employee retirement plan:We will always be offering retirement options to employees. I voted for a bill that would fund beneficiaries and move everything to a state 401(k) plan. You have to be employed by the state for seven years before you can invest in a pension. So if you quit after six years and 11 days you dont get that. With our 401(k) plan you will take that money. Most state employees only work five years. And this years proposal is to separate special risk factions firefighters and cops and keep the traditional plan for them.Clean water: Water comes into Lake O. six times faster than it can be drained in a rain event, and the biggest drain is the Caloosahatchee. If were going to fix the river, we have to keep water from coming into the lake six times faster than it drains out. So, fix the Kissimmee River basin. Were in phase one and going into phase two. Also, bring in large (agricultural) lands as partners. And after we restore the historic level of the lake, we need to store water in higher volumes on farm lands with a lease-style arrangement.Gambling expansion: Lee County has demonstrated support for expanded gaming. But we need to decide as a culture, what do we want to have? If my colleagues want to expand, I want Lee to be included in that. I dont want a scenario of the county getting left out of the conversation.In-state tuition for undocumented college students: In the entire immigration debate, the hardest question to answer is what do we do with the children? They are American in every sense but their papers. The entire discussion is much more easily solved by asking, Why have a two-tiered tuition system? Concentrate on tuition tied to performance.Red-light cameras: I hate them. Theyre a Fourth Amendment violation.State minimum wage: It destroys jobs, the economics decreases employment, its a foolish tactic. But it sounds good. Its a nice populist issue. Heather Dawes FitzenhagenR-District 78 Medicaid expansion: I am still hopeful we will be able to find a compromise position or a work-around to the existing stalemate between a wellintentioned initiative by our House to have a self-sustaining means to provide medical care to those in need, and (the federal expansion option). I am also very cognizant that our hospitals are struggling, that Lee Memorial is being put in a very negative place because we are not taking these dollars that would help us better serve the needy. So I am going to do the best I can with my skill set as a mediator and analyst thinker to find a solution. The two sides both want to find the answer. We want to have a fiscally sound, self-sustaining, long-range approach that wont take Florida down a path where we have the rug pulled out from underneath us eventually, and a higher obligation at the state level.State employee retirement plan: I believe ultimately that having control over your own destiny and your own financial affairs, and not being at risk, whether its a company or a state or a union, is a powerful and positive thing. I would like to see that eventually happen for everyone in the state, no matter what their job is. But I also believe there are certain situations, such as those of first responders or teachers and theyre really doing the labor of love since there is no amount of money we could pay to compensate them for that. So we should also have a solvent plan to take care of them and follow through on our commitment. I dont want to take anything away that we promised people working for the state, but I would want to give incentive and motivation options for them to (have control of their plans).Clean water: This is a huge issue for me. I have been on the clean-water bandwagon for quite sometime. What I try to explain is, we did not get here overnight, and were not going to clean it up overnight. It will be done in incremental steps. Were on the right path. We have plans in place, and we have to fund the plans and educate young people so it becomes part of their vernacular to have a clean water management approach like with recycling and no smoking so it becomes part of our culture. And we not only need to clean up estuaries and the Caloosahatchee, but manage our process better. Whether its reusable or clean water, get all the stakeholders in the process tourism, agriculture, development. A lot of this issue arises from water coming from the Kissimmee north of the lake and picking up myriad pollutants from agriculture, from septic systems and backyardsGambling expansion: I would not use the word expansion. What were discussing is a means by which to manage and get the derived and most economic benefit and the least negative social consequences from what we already have in Florida. We dont have a consistent approach to how to maximize a financial benefit for all Floridians and limit social problems that may result in ongoing gaming. People in Southwest Florida have voted that they would like to have gaming in our area. I have to acknowledge: I am worried about the money we could lose from contracts with the Seminoles, and we have to consider the ramifications.In-state tuition for undocumented college students: Im in favor for the following reasons. As a Republican, it makes sense for Florida. These children are not bad actors. They were brought here, they grew up here, theyre part of the fabric of our community. We are already making an investment in them. To stop the investment doesnt make any sense because well have a disenfranchised group of people who arent able to support Florida. Give hard-working young people the even playing field others have. It makes financial sense. Otherwise they wont have the same ability to contribute to society. And its the right thing to do. Also, I serve on two education committees. Id put our university system up against any other. Where we need to continue to focus our efforts will be in the early learning category. Its critical, I underscore critical, that we invest in early learning. We must get them up to speed, because they will be attending our schools and attending K-12 schools. Otherwise well have difficult financial consequencesRed-light cameras: No opinion at present.State minimum wage: I do not believe in that, I believe in free enterprise. I want to put no restrictions on employers and employees. Matt HudsonR-District 80 Medicaid expansion: Absolutely not. Its wrong for America, wrong for Florida. In September, I testified before congress about this. Florida should not be on the hook for the residual effects of this plan. We dont have enough practitioners to practice medicine. We have counties without a hospital. How do you provide services to those folks? Giving somebody a Medicaid card and having them have nowhere to go is not fixing the problem. If we expand a poorly run program it will not create any benefits.State minimum wage: No, Im not in favor. Those are individual marketdriven conditions. The employer will do whats necessary to attract and retain the workforce necessary to do the job. Those are market driven decisions and should be government decisions.State employee retirement plan: I think its appropriate to ensure that the promises weve made to state employees thus far are maintained.

PAGE 10 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 Going forward for new employees, there is nothing wrong with making sure they are treated consistently with the practices of the private market maybe a 401(k)-type or cash-balance retirement plan, for example. But for the system to remain strong long term, were going to need to revamp it. One of biggest challenges in the budgets of many states is the state or municipal pension.Clean water: Well, as I have often told people, short of the St Johns and the Nile, water flows south. The Everglades starts at Shingle Creek in Orlando. All water flowing south from central Florida flows into Lake Okeechobee. We have to do a better job cleaning water north of Lake O. Then we wont have to be cleaning water later, well be stopping pollution at its source. In addition, we need to call in our federal partners who have sole authority over Okeechobee they have to get that dike repaired. The dike will bridge: will; not might. Its not a question of if. The Amry Corps has boulders staged around the lake to where they think its most likely to breach, but its not a comfortable feeling if you live around the lake to think you and your family could be drowned in a flood at 2 a.m. The Federal government must do its job and fund repairs. Then you can hold more water, which is naturally cleaned, and the discharges will be much better. So, providing resources for cleaning waters north of the Lake, and fixing Okeechobee, is the entire issue for me. It will be very expensive, but it has to be done. If you spend the money to solve it at its root, then youve made the best use of that money. If you keep trimming a weed it will come back. But if you pull it out at its root, youll fix the problem.Gambling expansion: Im in a rare position on this question. Number one, I dont gamble, so I dont have a dog in that fight. But I do represent two Seminole Indian reservations, both of which have gaming. Im the only person in the state legislature in that position. Historically, the government has not fulfilled many of its promises to our tribal nations. So, no matter what we do, we need to work in concert with Seminoles, and we need to make sure we are keeping our promise to that tribe. In-state tuition for undocumented college students: For me, the devil is in the details of that plan. I havent made a decision. I want to see the actual legislation. Inherently, I believe the immigration issue provides a great challenge for the states. The federal governments inability to provide a coherent immigration policy for every state puts every state in a bad position.Red-light cameras: We have the ability within the statute to have them. In Collier County we dont allow right turns on red to count as violations on them, and in my part of Hendry we have no red light cameras. When we changed the law to allow more government control on that issue a few years ago, it was a good choice. I understand peoples concerns about individual liberties and freedoms. We have to find a balance between keeping them safe and out of trauma centers, and preserving their individual liberties. Its interesting that no one complains about cameras when theyre used to warn of a traffic jam ahead on the interstate or when were having a hurricane and they can be used to tell drivers what the best evacuation route might be. Kathleen PassidomoR-District 106 Medicaid expansion: I serve on the subcommittee that deals with this, and we had a whole session worth of meetings last year. At the end, we had heard from all the stakeholders. The conclusion we came to was Medicaid expansion would not be in (the) best interest of the state. The bottom line is the Medicaid program is not effective, there are ba d outc omes, its very expensive, and people who are eligible had not been signing up. And when asked, they said they didnt want to because the Medicaid providers werent doing a good job. We agreed to participate in the federal exchange so people are starting to sign up for that. But who are the people were not serving? We all agree we have to do something about them. Now, we serve pregnant women, children, families of children these are the needy and we serve the disabled. The elderly are served by Medicare, and with the exchange, the able-bodied working people are signing up for insurance. The group were missing is the working poor We have to do something for them, I believe. Last session in the House we tried to get the federal government to be flexible in allowing those people, the working poor, to participate in the exchange. It doesnt make sense that, if theyre going to have federal subsidies for some people, to leave out the working poor.Clean water: My feeling is that we have environmental issues that are unacceptable with the discharge of pollutions. People have disturbed the natural flow of water from and to the lake. Our obligation is to fix the problem we made. The cost isnt going to go away, its only going to get greater. We have to find a way to work with farmers and the federal government to begin the process of cleaning our waters. The policy decision we have to make is, are we going to just do stop-gap measures we can afford right now, or bite the bullet and work with the federal government, with farmers, and with our water management districts and create a plan that will work and how much is that going to cost, and who will pay for it? But it wont ever get cheaper.Gambling expansion: Im OK with the current status that they have now. Leave it up to communities to decide whether its appropriate in their community. Lee County voted to authorize their dog track. If thats what they want, who am I to say different? The issue is, we have to deal with the Seminole compact. We need to renegotiate it.In-state tuition for undocumented college students: Until a bill is presented to us, I dont know how Id respond to that. A lot of people say, if the child was not born here and came illegally, we should not give them the same rights as other kids, but problem is, weve educated them through public schools Its really easy for someone to say, Throw them all out. But its not doable, and its impractical. You can say that and have protests and have Facebook comments, but the bottom line is, you cant really do it.Red-light cameras: I originally was a proponent of red-light cameras. I was advised it was cutting down on traffic accidents. In Collier anyway, before we had them, I noticed if I was on Pine Ridge Road, Id be at a light when it turned green, and I had to wait for seven or eight cars to go through the red before I could go. The cameras stopped that completely. But heres the problem: Communities all over the state saw this as a money-making scoop. (Officials) shortened yellow lights so people got caught. They were almost enticing people to go through red lights, for financial gain. I said, You know what? If youre going to do that, Im not going to be supportive.State minimum wage: Our minimum wage is going up. But Im not convinced one way or the other many articles I read say if you raise minimum wage, well lose jobs. Is that better? Ray Rodrigues R-District 76 Medicaid expansion: Im not a supporter of Medicaid expansion. We have to depend on the federal government to come through with the dollars. The Feds committed dollar for dollar on Everglades restoration, for example, but the state tops their contribution by two to one, still. The federal government has reneged on promises theyve made and if they dont come through on Medicaid, they could bankrupt us. The House plan uses Medicaid as it is designed to be every disabled person and children under 21 are covered. Single, able-bodied adults would not be covered. So are they shut out? No: A single able-bodied adult who is earning minimum wage at 40 hours a week makes enough to be covered.Clean water: Over the past two decades the state and federal government have been working together. Everglades Forever has a number of projects that need to be accomplished. What we havent seen is the wherewithal to take the appropriate steps. We need in one step to prioritize funding for projects weve already planned. Let me add this: Its not all a state responsibility, its also getting the federal government to honor their responsibility as well.Gambling expansion: I am not a supporter of gaming. If we have something that comes out, it should be ratified by voters constitutionally. If were going to move beyond that it will go to the ballot and voters will decide. And it ought to be up to the voters of each locality (what happens in their communities). In-state tuition for undocumented college students: I do think we need to make revisions. But the No. 1 priority ought to be our veterans. These are people who have served our country if were going to be extending in-state tuition, veterans should get taken care of first. I have some qualms about the other.Red-light cameras: Im not a fan of them. It was sold as a safety issue but what weve seen are municipalities trying to generate revenue Theres a bill I support to restrict the revenue they get now.State minimum wage:That would actually lead to job loss. Carlos TrujilloR-District 105 Rep. Trujillo did not respond to emails and telephone messages before press time. SOUTHWEST FLORIDA SENATE: Lizbeth BenacquistoR-District 30 Medicaid expansion: No.State government employee retirement plans: Is there a specific bill or proposal you are asking about?Clean water: Fund water storage projects, including the C-43 Reservoir, Implement best management practices north of Lake Okeechobee, Encourage water farming in the Kissimmee Basin to increase water storage and reduce flows into Lake Okeechobee. Gambling expansion: No.In-state tuition for undocumented college students: No.Red-light cameras: Is there a specific bill or proposal you are asking about?State minimum wage: No. Dwight BullardD-District 39 Medicaid expansion: This is absolutely needed. Individuals who do not qualify for Affordable Care are in dire need of help. Not taking the money Floridians have already paid into the system is more than just a political issue or an economic issue its a life-or-death issue for people. The SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, has shown that for every day we do not expand Medicaid, in addition to losing huge amounts of money, four Floridians will die.Clean water: I applaud continued efforts toward Everglades restoration, but one of the critical concerns is reinvestment in water infrastructure statewide sewage systems, pipes. Its important for us to develop a strategy on water reclamation. Right now, were dumping millions of gallons of drinkable water into the ocean because we cant store it. Gambling expansion: I see this year as one of those kick-the-can-down-theroad years. Right now a lot of gambling interests are polling to see what the palette of voters is. Its become more favorable over the last few years in terms of being a bi-partisan issue. I dont think were ready to tackle the dynamics at the moment. Red-light cameras: Cities and counties are installing cameras as a potential revenue source, as well as to alleviate traffic infractions. There was a moment in time when municipalities were a little overly zealous, but those occurrences AGENDAFrom page 8

FINAL DAYS TO SAVE ON* 50%*OFF MSRP Distinctlnorris NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 NEWS A11 have been reigned in. A lot of individuals were concerned with that. I think they can help.State government employee retirement plans: The state retirement system, the FRS, is one of the best in the country. In this issue its the old adage: If it aint broke dont fix it. Its been working well. We have police and firefighters, the first responders, and others who could be asked to move to a 401(k)-type benefits package that does a disservice to those who have made these jobs their profession. And thats true for new employees coming on, say those who choose to become career teachers. Give them an option: If they want the 401(k)-type plan, then good. For myself as a teacher (Sen. Bullard has taught sociology for 14 years at Miamis Coral Reef Senior High School), the last thing you want to think about after an exhausting day in the classroom is, Do I need to reinvest? I get headaches just thinking about having to keep a watchful eye on my plan because you dont know whether you will retire with $8,000 or with $80,000. The current benefits plan is a safeguard that after years of yeomans work I call it that, firefighting, law enforcement, teaching, jobs in which youre never going to get rich you will have a reasonable, respectable retirement when you do leave the system. Not only does it encourage people to commit to state work, but it encourages talented people to commit to the work.State minimum wage: The old days of the minimum-wage worker being a part-time or a high-school student have changed. The average age of fast-food employees now is 27, and 30 percent are trying to raise families on those salaries. They cant. So if thats the case, give them a better salary. Its the responsible thing to do. We should encourage companies to do it. And they can. Heres a real-time example: Right after the oil spill in the Gulf, in the fiscal quarter after that, BP made a profit of about $5 billion. If you ask any one of the gasstation attendants at any BP station whether or not their salary went up, youll get a resounding, No. It shows a lack of empathy and responsibility on the part of big business to fail to provide respectable wages. A hike in wage is something government is sometimes tasked with doing, and we have an obligation to exercise that responsibility. Nancy DetertR-District 28 Ms. Detert did not respond to email and telephone messages before press time. Garrett RichterR-District 23 Medicaid expansion: I continue to support the plan that was created by the Senate last year. I dont think the issue will surface during this session, though. But the plan is to not necessarily put people on Medicaid but to give them ownership of a subsidized insurance policy, so they have a little skin in the game and a minimal co-pay, with a small reasonable monthly cost.State government employee retirement plans: Sen. Simpson will introduce a committee bill that will establish the cash balance plan that provides for more alternatives for state employees, relative to pensions. Its a good start as we try to wean the state away from the benefit contribution plans and move into cash contributions rather than benefit contributions. Employees can direct money into a plan and are guaranteed a 2 percent return. If the fund creates greater than 2 percent, then they will receive a portion of the higher return in dividends back into their account. And in this plan, the state would make investment decisions employees wouldnt have to.Gambling expansion: One of my priorities is to present legislation that reorganizes the statute and eliminates inconsistencies and confusion with that. I support establishing a control board thats the term Im using for it, it would be like a gaming commission and establishing parameters that would let the governor renegotiate some of the terms on the Seminole contract.In-state tuition for undocumented students: Relative to Rep. Will Weatherfords plan, Im probably in a position to vote favorably for that. These young people have been in the state for years, maybe, so lets give them as many opportunities to succeed and get an education as possible. Red-light cameras: In my own personal driving, I am in fact a safer driver because of those cameras. But by the same token, I do not think the red-light cameras should be used to grow the financial coffers of local communities.State minimum wage: If you raise the price of something, you end up with less of it. At this point, were focused on creating jobs, not reducing them. I would not be in favor of raising minimum wage.Clean water: Even down in our community we have to create opportunities for storage. We have to establish storage basins around the state. Alico has got a plan theyre advocating that I can get behind, for 100,000plus acres of water storage. We should continue our partnership with the Army Corps relative to monitoring releases from Lake Okeechobee, and I know the governor came out a while back with $90 million to establish this as a priority, whether it goes underneath the Tamiami Trail or its stored. A continued focus on water would be a high priority for the state its one of things that makes this state so attractive.

PAGE 12 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 Ave Maria U. announces plans for performing arts centerAve Maria University has announced plans to build a 1,250-seat performing arts center on its campus east of Naples. Myra Janco Daniels, founder and longtime CEO of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts and the Naples Museum of Art (now ArtisNaples and the Baker Art Museum) has been named chair of the $10 million project. The center will feature a thrust stage and will also house classrooms, a multi-media studio, office space, practice rooms and an art gallery. We have started a new era, AMU President Jim Towey said in the announcement. Our founder, Tom Monaghan, had a great interest in the arts and planted the seeds. University officials expect the new center to draw students from around the world and to attract top-flight faculty. Fundraising is underway, and construction is targeted for completion in 2016. Renowned architect Gene Aubrey, who designed the aforementioned Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples as well as the Wortham Theater Center and the Rothko Chapel, both in Houston, will design the AMU facility. For more information, visit NABOR plans a party to introduce the public to newest PAWS pupsMeet the three newest golden retriever pups that will become PAWS Assistance Dogs when the Naples Area Board of Realtors and its Community Improvement Committee host a get-together for the public from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 6, at NABOR headquarters on Pine Ridge Road. In addition to holding and playing with the puppies, guests can meet Sunshine, a 14-month old golden retriever currently being trained to help a wounded veteran, and say farewell to August, a recent graduate of the PAWS program, whose ongoing veterinary care and training will be funded from proceeds raised at NABORs Realtor Expo. At almost 8 weeks old, the puppies are about to begin a two-year intensive training program with PAWS that is designed to turn them into fully certified service and assistance dogs. But before they enter the PAWS training academy, they need lots of love and encouragement to build confidence.PAWS invests more than $35,000 in each placement we make, and support from community partners like NABOR allows us to place these dogs at no cost to those they serve, Jeannie Bates, CEO of PAWS, explains. For a veteran or child in need, a PAWS dog changes their lives, she adds.The puppy party is a fun way to educate the community about the PAWS program and its therapeutic value to those who benefit from the dogs training and companionship, says Susan Hubly, chair of the NABOR Community Involvement Committee. NABOR partners with different local charities throughout the year. Refreshments will be served during the party, and attendees will be encouraged to hold and play with puppies for a donation to the PAWS cause. Ms. Bates and PAWS volunteers who assist with the dogs will also be in attendance.

Mr. Breivik, serving 21 years for the 2011 bomband-gun attacks that killed 77 people, may already enjoy amenities unheard of for a comparable American murderer, but he sent wardens 12 demands in November, including an upgrade of his manual typewriter and his PlayStation 2 (to a PS3, with better access to game selection). He also demanded that his weekly government allowance (equivalent of $49) be doubled, and said if the torture of his living conditions is not relieved, he would be forced into a hunger strike. (Mr. Breivik threatened a similar strike in 2012, citing inhumane conditions such as cold coffee, lack of skin moisturizer and insufficient butter f or his bread.) The continuing crisis Following alarming reports, the Ohio attorney generals office began working with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association in December to be vigilant for pet owners who might be commandeering their dogs and cats pain killers for their own use. Worse, other reports suggested some owners were deliberately injuring their pets just to obtain the drugs. The Super Bowl may be the holy grail for Las Vegas sports gambling, but outside the United States, horse racing, soccer and, surprisingly, pro tennis dominate. Tennis provides bettors with 19,000 matches a year (compared to 1,200 NBA games, 2,400 Major League Baseball games and fewer than 300 NFL games), with betting on 400,000 individual games and even on individual points, of which there are almost 2.5 million, according to a January New York Times dispatch from Melbourne, Australia. In Januarys Australian Open, a routine fourth-round womens match between players ranked ninth and 28th in the world attracted more than $4 million in wagers on just the first set. In Chedzoy, England, in January, the border collie spaniel Luce was re-homed after Royston Grimstead, 42, learned that she had chewed completely through a wheel arch on his $120,000 Aston Martin. Said Mr. Grimstead, (S)he had this guilty look on her face. A magistrates court in Aberystwyth, Wales, convicted Ms. Rhian Jeremiah, 26, of criminal damage in January for biting into the roof of a Fiat 500 during an alcohol-fueled incident last year. Said the cars owner, I could hear metal crunching (but, said Mr. Jeremiahs lawyer, not quite like the scene in a James Bond movie featuring the character Jaws). When a brand-new, exhaustively itemized medical coding system debuts in October (planned long before Obamacare, by the way), doctors will find, for example, dozens of separate numbers to describe dealings with a patients big toe (left one, right one, with or without nail damage, blisters, abrasions, critter bites, fractures, dislocations, sprains, amputation, etc.). Among the odder listed origins of injury, reported The New York Times in December, are codes for burning water skis and injuries incurred in opera houses, or while knitting, or as a manifestation of sibling rivalry. The current system has about 17,000 codes, but the new one totals 68,000 for diagnoses plus 87,000 for procedures. Close enough for government workClare Lally, weary of her three-flight front walk, demanded a wheelchair ramp on her government-subsidized house in Duntocher, England, for her daughter, 7, who has suffered from bulbar palsy since birth, and the West Dunbartonshire Council came through promptly. A frontyard-dominating concrete platform was built in January (costing the equivalent of $67,000), consisting of a 10-level snakestyle series of ramps with steel railings. Not only does navigating the snake take time, but Ms. Lally now complains that the ramp has been taken over by neighborhood kids as a skateboard run. Smooth reactions Following an evening of heavy drinking, according to police in Russias Sverdlovsk region in January, a former schoolteacher, 52, was charged with fatally stabbing his host, 67, during a dispute over whether poetry or prose is the more important literary form. One Russian man shot another (nonfatally, with rubber bullets) in the town of Rostov-on-Don in September in an argument over theories of German philosopher Immanuel Kant. Nadja Svenson, 22, was charged on Christmas Eve in Londonderry, N.H. (a night with clear skies, apparently), with stabbing her father in the chest during bickering over the position of the Big Dipper.PerspectiveThe lukewarm prosecution of two Steubenville (Ohio) High football players for an August 2012 rape was foundering until Internet hacker Deric Lostutter, 2 6, raised the incidents profile, but now Mr. Lostutter fac es a vindictive prosecution and the possibility he could serve a prison sentence five times longer than the wrist-slap detention the now-convicted rapists served. When Mr. Lostutter took interest, many Steubenville students and residents had been hoping to quiet the case or even blame the victim, but (according to November reporting by Rolling Stone) apparently one Steubenville High official managed to convince the FBI that Mr. Lostutte rs hacking of the officials personal emails was a greater national threat than the rapes and provoked a SWAT raid on Mr. Lostutters modest farmhouse. (Besides the football players, the citys school superintendent was indicted for tampering with evidence and three other officials for false statements and failing to report child abuse.)

Does not include clearance items. Expires 3/15/14 said Terry Thimlar, who played basketball at the school in the 1970s and is the son of Hugh Thimlar, who coached mens basketball at Edison for 25 years. The school is now jumping back into sports. It hired an athletic director, Carl McAloose, who started Feb. 17. The school will soon change its name to SouthWestern State College and one of new president Jeff Albrittens goals is reviving sports. McAloose, who was FGCUs first athletic director, will start hiring coaches in the coming months and moving forward to crank up sports on the schools Fort Myers campus. Plans call for teams to start competing as soon as the fall of 2015 with mens and womens basketball and womens volleyball and to eventually build an oncampus, 3,000to 3,500-seat arena. The arena will probably be near the highly traveled corner of Summerlin Road and Cypress Lake Drive, according to Mr. Albritten. Initially, teams will play off campus at sites to be determined. Baseball and softball are expected to be phased in the following year. In the 20th century, the schools teams were known as the Buccaneers. That will be the case again in the 21st century. Now, as the school moves forward with a new name, it is bringing back an old one.Pulling it all togetherHigh on Mr. McAlooses to-do list is finding men and women to coach the teams. Hes looking for coaches with what he terms an entrepreneurial spirit. Thats the biggest thing, Mr. McAloose said. They have to have a vision. Theyre doing everything... What are their uniforms going to look like? You have to have a vision. By vision, Mr. McAloose means more than a Bill Blass sense of sports-uniform style. Finding temporary homes for teams will be one of Mr. McAlooses early missions, something he went through when he started FGCUs sports teams. Remember, FGCU (baseball), we played at Terry Park, Mr. McAloose said. We played softball at Gulf Coast High School. Weve got so many friends here in the community. One of each coachs jobs will be finding athletes to play for their teams. Mr. McAloose envisions recruiting everywhere, from right in Southwest Florida from local high schools to overseas. Right in our backyard theres so much talent that its unbelievable, Mr. McAloose said. The Bucs will join the Florida College System Activities Association, which governs junior college sports in the state. Jeff Stewart, Edisons vice president for research, technology and accountability, prepared a 22-page athletics feasibility study that is available on the schools website, The report notes that 23 state and community colleges sponsor intercollegiate athletics. Edison will join those ranks. Within that are two conferences the Bucs could join: the Southern Conference on Floridas east coast and the Suncoast Conference on the west coast. The Bucs will need help from outside the school to find playing and practice sites. Dave Harner, Lee Countys parks and recreation director, said his department is willing to help the Buccaneers. Were always open to any partnerships, Mr. Harner said. In the 20th century, the Edison baseball team played at Terry Park, a county facility, as well as on campus. City of Palms Park, the Boston Red Sox former spring-training home in Fort Myers, is also a county facility. The Lee County Sports Complex, a short drive from campus, has softball fields where the softball team could play and practice. Theres so many things we could do, Mr. Harner said. Mr. Albritten said its possible to build baseball and softball fields on campus. It would be tight, but it can be done, Mr. Albritten said. Were also looking to see if we start playing in the community, the real benefit to that is the ties to the community will grow faster. The school president said the college is also considering finding more space around its Lee County campus, which is squeezed into a tight spot at the southwest corner of Summerlin Road and College Parkway with Canterbury School on its west side and condos, apartments and churches to the west and south. Were landlocked, Mr. Albritten said.Looking forwardJohn Cedarburg was Edisons last baseball coach. He was there when the program was shut down in 1997, five years, he said, after the school dropped basketball and volleyball. Mr. Cedarburg recalls the status of his program was shaky and that school administrators were not supportive. The program was always on skates, he said. Still, the news that baseball was being dropped was a bit of a shock. Its always a surprise when they shut you down,Mr. Cedarburg said. When Cedarburg coached, the campus baseball field was located where Walker Hall now stands. The school also had tennis courts and Gresham Gym for basketball and volleyball. The gym was converted to classroom use. Mr. Cedarburg said hed be happy to help get the new program off the ground. Edisons return to sports was particularly welcome news for Jeff Mielke, executive director of Lee County Sports Development. Mr. Mielke said Lee County needs an arena to help lure more sports events. We are in desperate need of additional sports facilities, Mr. Mielke said. Although Lee County has four baseball facilities that are or were at one point Major League Baseball spring training sites, Mr. Mielke said an oncampus arena with room for sports such as basketball, volleyball, badminton, martial arts and more would fill a need. Edison State College is now moving forward, but is also at the same time honoring its past. We have a history, Mr. McAloose said. We want to bring that back. That history was teams known as the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers will soon be back in action. EDISONFrom page 1ALBRITTEN

The gathering is inspired by the Death Cafe concept that began in England in 2011 and has since crossed the Atlantic to be offered in a number of cities throughout the U.S. At death cafes, people many times strangers gather to enjoy refreshments and discuss death. The common objective of these gatherings is to raise death awareness and encourage participants to make the most of their (finite) lives. Death Caf hosts get the conversation started and impose no agenda or philosophy. Organizing representatives from Avow will follow this format at the Naples gathering and expect the conversation will touch on the practical, emotional and spiritual aspects of dying and death. They will encourage participants to keep an open mind; all spiritual, religious and end-of-life beliefs will be honored. When we learned about the Death Caf movement, it just made sense for Avow to organize one locally, says Karen Rollins, Avow president and CEO. As providers of hospice care, Avow facilitates conversations about death and dying every day, she adds. What makes our talks with families most difficult is when death is the white elephant in the room. By talking about death matters before you find yourself or a loved one facing end of life, you have a much better chance of dying well. Attendance at Coffee, Tea and Mortality is free. Reservations are requested and can be made by calling 6493689. The program is not recommended for anyone who is engaged in the grieving process. Support programs for those in grief are available from Avow. Avows companies care not only for those who are terminally ill, but also for those who have serious and chronic illnesses or who have suffered great loss.

Bay Dr. Looking for a New Dermatologist? Part One: A case study of an OB/GYN worst nightmareIt is no overstatement to say that at NCH, we perform miracles. Wonderful deeds in health care happen more often than you might expect. These stories dont always start out well. This is one such story, so compelling and uplifting that I wanted to give due credit to all the caregivers involved. As a result, Im making this a two-part column, beginning this week and concluding next. The story speaks to why having local, centralized, high-volume critical services makes a real difference. Of course I will respect the privacy of the patient and family involved; but all of the miraculous details here are true. Early one recent Sunday afternoon, I received a call from anesthesiologist Tom Cook, informing me of an incident from the day before in the labor and delivery suite of The Birth Place on our North Naples campus. Dr. Cook told me that a woman was about to have her third child and was receiving a routine epidural anesthesia block when she went into sudden cardiac arrest. Her lungs stopped first and then her heart. The unborn baby was not receiving oxygen from the mother. It was every OB/GYNs worst nightmare. Certified nurse anesthetist Wendy Sparks and RN Sybil Ashby immediately started successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Dr. Wally McLean, the longest practicing obstetrician on our staff, happened to be in the ER and was called for a stat caesarian section. As the mothers chest was being compressed and her breathing being supported by a tube in her airway, she was whisked into one of the three C-section ORs (one is always available even when elective C-sections are being performed). There, the labor and delivery operating team started to assist Dr. McLean to save the baby. HEALTHY LIVING SEE WEISS, A36 SEE CROSSROADS, A36 Crossroads inspires hope, changes lives through improved addiction services SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY One in nine Collier County residents experience some form of substance abuse. The far-reaching impact of this crippling disease affects family, friends, employers, health-care professionals and society as a whole. The consequences of drug abuse and addiction are vast and varied and include medical, economic, criminal and social costs. From a legal standpoint, the vast majority of offenders in the criminal justice system suffer from substanceuse disorders. The good news is that research strongly supports the fact that treatment for substance-use disorders helps many drug-abusing offenders change their attitudes, beliefs and behaviors, avoid relapse and maintain a life free from substance abuse and crime. The bad news is that, in addition to legal ramifications, without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death. Since 1968, David Lawrence Center has been committed to ensuring the health, wellbeing and safety of the Collier County community. It is the centers mission to inspire and create life-changing wellness for every individual through innovative behavioral health-care solutions. Most members of the legal community are aware of many of these solutions, including pretrial intervention, Baker Act services, Drug Court, Mental Health Court, Forensic Services and collaboration with the criminal justice system. Many, however, might not be aware of recent enhancements to David Lawrence Centers Crossroads programs designed to ensure a powerful and accessible resource for people experiencing acute difficulty with substance abuse. Hon. Janeice Martin: Judges are constantly seeking constructive solutions to the problems that have brought the defendants into the system. When the issue is addiction, having an affordable, flexible and multi-level local treatment option is absolutely crucial. David Lawrence Center provides the courts with an accessible and credible set of treatment options.It is important to be able to respond effectively to individuals at any stage of addiction, from acute intoxication to early sobriety and aftercare/recovery management. In a single system, Crossroads integrates treatment along a continuum of care, from detox to aftercare. Crossroads detox uses state-of-theart, individualized withdrawal management protocols that are comfortable and that have a remarkable degree of safety. Crossroads detox also offers early recovery programming, not just medication management of symptoms. In addition to traditional residential programming and evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy, the residential program at Crossroads now offers innovate, adjunctive therapies such as art therapy, equine-facilitated therapy, yoga, pet therapy, individualized wellness and health education as well as structured fitness and recreation. Nancy Dauphinais, clinical supervisor at Crossroads: Individuals with substance-abuse and mental-health disorders experience significant discrepancies in health and mortality factors and require approaches that address the whole person both physically and psychologically in order to prevent relapse and maintain recovery.There is substantial scientific evidence supporting the fact that medication-assisted treatment significantly improves success rates in the first six months of recovery. Crossroads now utilizes a board-certified addictionologist/psychiatrist who can provide this highly specialized service. Because as many as 60 percent of substance abusers also have a mental-health diagnosis, our physicians also assess for co-occurring psychiatric disorders and can initiate mental-health services in the early stages of treatment. This combination of expanded residential services, medication-assisted treatment and the ability to address co-occurring psychiatric disorders allows David Lawrence Center to better meet the needs of a diverse range of individuals in a way that is virtually unmatched in Southwest Florida. As part of our ongoing efforts to meet the growing need for exceptional, desirable and accessible substanceA bedroom at Crossroads at the David Lawrence Center


abuse treatment services, particularly for individuals involved in the criminal justice system, Crossroads has responded by offering new and innovative treatment plans that will reach a greater number of people in need. No two clients are the same, and every individuals treatment plan is customized to address the severity of addictive illness, substances being abused, personal circumstances, professional obligations and family needs. Some Crossroads clients need to start with Detox, while others with enough initial stability can enter at the outpatient level. As with the detox and residential programs, the Crossroads outpatient program is also highly individualized. Treatment plans can range from one to three days a week; most include residential treatment and aftercare support, but additional intensive or extended treatment plan options that include various levels of outpatient support for ongoing recovery maintenance are available. These plans range from two weeks to nine months. By incorporating varying levels of treatment with customized lengths of stay, we meet the unique needs of each individual while ensuring the well being and safety of our community. Attorney Jerry Berry: I think every lawyer who practices criminal law should learn more about the new services at Crossroads. All of us have clients who need help but who for various reasons cant do a 28-day program or who need a long-term plan in order to satisfy the state.The enhancements to Crossroads ensure that the highest quality, cuttingedge treatment is provided in a comfortable and welcoming environment at a cost few can match. As a not-for-profit organization founded and still governed by community leaders, the center relies on donations, fees and grants to provide our services. To ensure our Crossroads programs are accessible, some beds are partially funded by the state of Florida; other beds are funded through privatepay or third-party insurers. Attorney Bill ONeill, David Lawrence Center board member: There is no one who is not affected, directly or indirectly, by mental illness or substance abuse. David Lawrence Center provides a vital service, one that serves and helps not only the addict or alcoholic, but that persons loved ones, often desperately seeking help for the son, daughter, father, mother or friend who is suffering. It is my honor to assist in whatever way I can the work of this great community provider.

Each of them played an integral part in resuscitation, stabilization and facilitation of this emergency delivery. ICU RN Jeff Sander and respiratory therapist Julio Mendez mentored and coached the labor and deliverty team to perform at their optimum level. At the same time, of course, we still had other Birth Place patients who needed care. RNs Elizabeth Gonzalez and Alicia Brophy resumed care of all of the other laboring patients to assure their safety during this one difficult situation. Meanwhile, unit secretary Jodie Jensen dutifully monitored the desk and call bells, and administrative coordinators and RNs Melody Bacon and Michael Spence facilitated all of the fast-moving and critical clinical activities. The newborns initial condition and Apgar scores were concerning. But in 10 minutes, the neonatal team had placed the infant on a respirator; this was removed after six hours, with the baby out of danger. But what of the mother, who was at this point still in precarious condition? What had caused her cardiac arrest, and how could she be saved? Those were the critical questions confronting Drs. Cook and McLean and the rest of the team. That diagnosis, which had to be made immediately, and the resulting treatments, are the subject of next weeks column.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickDoes your shelter have a kitten nursery? Its one of the trends in the shelter communitys efforts to save more animals, especially those who typically arent considered adoptable. Kittens? Unadoptable? Youd be surprised. Young kittens are among the most at-risk animals in shelters. Kittens who are old enough to be adopted usually fly out of shelters, but those younger than 8 weeks have special needs. Newborn kittens must be bottle-fed every two hours and are highly vulnerable to disease. They also require socialization at an early age. Thats more intensive care than many shelters have been able or willing to give. But some progressive shelters are responding to the challenge with kitten nurseries that save tiny feline lives until theyre ready for adoption. At the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA, the program has nurtured almost 5,500 kittens since 2009. The kitten nursery was born after a 2008 study found that 71 percent of treatable animals euthanized throughout San Diego County were cats and kittens. Of those, 38 percent were kittens younger than 8 weeks. We opened the kitten nursery in 2009 to save our communitys most at-risk animal, says SDHS nursery supervisor Jenny Bonomini. The program operates in conjunction with other nonprofit and government agencies in the San Diego Animal Welfare Coalition. With a 250-kitten capacity, the nursery has three designated areas separated by age: neonatal (newborns to 2 weeks); transitional (2 to 4 weeks) and socialization (5 to 8 weeks). The kittens receive round-the-clock care from 24 staff members and 20 volunteers. These tiny kittens are very vulnerable and their health can change hour by hour, Bonomini says. The medical team makes several rounds to the kitten nursery every day so we can constantly monitor these young kittens and provide any care that they may need. We also have many protocols in place to ensure that diseases dont spread. Kitten nurseries may operate only part of the year or almost year-round, depending on where the shelter is located. In temperate climates such as Florida, kitten season runs from March through November. In other areas, it typically runs from April through October. We get litters of stray kittens, owner-relinquished kittens and kittens transferred from other shelters who dont have the resources and infrastructure to care for them, Bonomini says. Successful programs have enough staff to care for kittens round-the-clock in a warm and safe environment with good diseasemanagement protocols. Other shelters with kitten nurseries include No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA), Austin Pets Alive in Austin, Texas, and a coalition of First Coast No More Homeless Pets, Jacksonville Humane Society and Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services in Jacksonville. The nurseries not only save lives and provide cat lovers with well-socialized pets, they also attract positive media attention and volunteers. A foster program increases the shelters capacity to care for kittens. When kittens can be placed in a foster home with trained volunteers, it frees up space in the nursery for additional kittens. At SDHS, volunteers learn how to feed and care for the kittens and receive all the supplies, equipment and support theyll need, including food, bowls, bedding, toys, litter, and any necessary medication and veterinary services. The nursery allows shelter staff to meet vital physiological and behavioral needs of kittens during a critical time in their development. Kitten brains have the greatest capacity for learning and memory between the ages of 4 weeks and 14 weeks, so the attention and handling they receive during their stay in the nursery helps them to become more sociable and self-assured. Once they reach 8 weeks and weigh 2 pounds, the kittens are spayed or neutered and made available for adoption. Spaying or neutering kittens, feral cats and pet cats helps to reduce the population of homeless animals.


THE DIVA DIARIESDazed and confused? Its in the starsThis latest Mercury retrograde has been merciless in its wake of backwards travel, causing havoc and confusion. Im not an astrologer, but that paragraph certainly sounds as though it were penned by someone wearing a caftan and calling herself Madam Sparkle Diva of The Stars. But really, astrology isnt my forte (although when Ive had a couple of margaritas at a party, I exhibit the remarkable ability to read palms with uncanny accuracy). When I was in my 20s, I was a devoted reader of horoscopes. I had my chart done to find out I was a Gemini rising; I would seriously consider guys signs before dating them (I truly believed that any relationship with a Sagittarius was completely doomed); and my bible was Cosmopolitan magazines Bedside Astrologer. I looked forward to that fancy insert every year and took its advice to heart: Sexy moon girls born under the sign of Cancer can catch the eye of that cute new fellow at the office in April by wearing a lacy push-up bra to show off that cleavage and misting on some extra Loves Baby Soft cologne! While I believed every word, I did wonder about Cancer girls who didnt work in offices, or the ones who didnt have cleavage. So, while Ive grown out of reading my horoscope on the regular, I do pay attention when Mercury is in retrograde. Most astrologers explain that when Mercury is moving backwards, we can expect delays and misunderstandings. They also say electronics seem to suffer from the retrograde phenomenon. The weirdness began on Feb. 6 and has continued through the month. Heres some evidence: Often times, while I hear English coming out of my mouth, the people with whom Im speaking are clearly hearing Portuguese, as they dont seem to understand a single idea Im trying to convey. Then we have the Unfortunate Texts. Ive sent more than a few texts to people that were not meant for them, and while they havent been tragic (yet), I have felt like an idiot. Other friends have experienced car malfunctions, travel plans gone awry and pets acting wonky. And almost everyone Ive talked to has experienced crazy nightmares, overly vivid dreams and/or insomnia. For those of you nonbelievers, all of this could just be chalked up to snowbird season (traffic, stress, long lines, etc.), but Im thinking that you throw some snowbird action into Mercury retrograde and youve got a mess that no amount of cleavage or Loves Baby Soft can fix. The good news is, this week Mercury begins to slowly shift the right way again, and by mid-March, normalcy should return to the stars of Southwest Florida. The snowbirds, however, will remain until Easter, so sayeth Madam Sparkle Diva of the Stars.Casino goes discoI foresee the stars in perfect alignment on Saturday, April 5, because thats when the legendary disco party band The Village People comes to Southwest Florida. Where, you ask? The Seminole Casino Immokalee. I have never been to the Seminole Casino Immokalee, ever, but now I must go. I simply HAVE to hear Y.M.C.A, In The Navy and, of course, Macho Man. And, guess what? Tickets are only $30, which leaves me money to get a hotel room (because Im definitely making a mini-vacation of this). For more info and tickets, call (800) 2180007.

bridalbusinessTheWWeddings dont have to cost a fortune, but some nice touches are worth the priceBY ATHENA PONUSHISaponushis@ EDDING MARKET RESEARCH predicts a 2014 bride will wed within 25 miles of home. She will welcome 130 guests. She will marry in May or June, maybe September. Her big day will not be formal, but elegant, playing to a romantic, rustic or vintage theme. Purple will reign as the primary color, but silver, gold and champagne are on the rise. Goodbye green and yellow. Hello Great Gatsby. Chandeliers are everywhere. There will be draping dcor, lush fabrics, vintage period furniture, crystals, pearls, feathers and lace. Marquees are hitting the scene, lighting up words with oversized letters. Gowns will be beaded. Centerpieces will be big. Food will be nostalgic. There will be a cocktail hour. Cakes will have texture. Every detail will have a touch of meaning and symbolism, true to the bride and groom, true to their families. A bride on a modest budget might spend $1,200 on a dress and $200 on her intendeds tux; $700 on a DJ, or if she fancies, $1,500 on a live band; $1,700 on a photographer; $1,000 on a videographer; another $1,000 on a coordinator; $200 on an officiate; $2,500 on the bar; $5,000 on the food; $400 on the cake; $500 on flowers arrangements, not including bouquets, all adding up to the average $26,000 cost of a wedding in the United States today, according to the marketresearch firm The Wedding Report. There are 7,000 to 7,500 weddings per year between Lee and Collier counties, says Mary Ann Crooker, producer of Bridal Blast, Southwest Floridas largest bridal show. With the average wedding expenditure being, lets say $27,000 for Lee and Collier, thats close to $200 million spent every year on weddings in Lee and Collier alone.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! jeannetteSHOWALTER, CFAshowalter@ww fsyst MONEY & INVESTINGColors and moneyMost investors do not think about how various stimuli in the environment influence their attitudes, emotions, decisions and, specifically, how colors impact their money and investing decisions. Just as surely as investment solicitations make use of certain verbiage to lure clients or place certain objects or pictures in an advertisement or in an office (e.g., showing a healthy, happily married couple making investment plans together), the investment business is also keenly aware of how color selection impacts decisions. Color is at the forefront of business owners minds when theyre painting the office walls, designing their websites, choosing employee uniforms, etc. Colors evoke certain emotions and cognitive functions even before anything has been said. Colors leave a lasting impression both consciously and subconsciously. The relationship between colors and the emotions, behaviors and attitudes surrounding money is much deeper than suggested by the 1986 movie The Color of Money, which starred Paul Newman and Tom Cruise. The movie was simply a tale of two pool hustlers, young and old. The color of money referenced in the movies title was green. That was the color of the billiard table where the pair made their money hustling the unsuspecting. For most people, the color green is synonymous with money, due to the green ink used in the U.S. dollar. Green also implies envy and, at its core, greed. Some colors trigger a conscious reaction, others an unconscious reaction a unique few colors trigger an actual physiological response. In studies where the participants had no prior association of the color red to any specific thought process, event emotion, etc., the color red still triggers neurons and electrical impulses that quicken a heartbeat. In fact, scientists have found that people who are colorblind have reaction to colors that they cannot see the color still emits certain wavelengths that hit a retina and evoke a response similar to that evoked in those who are not colorblind (How color shapes our lives, Jan. 29, The Atlantic). Behavioral scientists, including those in behavioral finance, take external stimuli (including color) seriously. These are the basic emotional impressions of colors: Red is exciting, bold, youthful and aggressive. Orange is friendly, cheerful and confident. Yellow is optimistic, warm and offers clarity. Purple is creative, wise and imaginative. Blue elicits trust, suggests dependability and conveys strength. Green suggests peace, calm, growth and health but can also mean envy or jealousy. White is quiet, non stimulative, innocent. The color that has the strongest hold on the human mind is red. It is the color that signals stop. It signals mistakes (as in a teachers red marker used to correct a students work). It also means aggression and dominance a much preferred sports teams uniform color. Interestingly, red transcends culture in that women dressed in red are found more attractive not just to U.S. men but also men from distant cultures. So how does this have anything to do with making money and investing? Some investors paint their den/offices a shade of green so that whenever they are in their office, they become attentive to making money. If investors are feeling that their ideas are stagnant, they should think of painting their white walls a bright color or placing objects or paintings on the walls that are bright. New colors on the wall might instill confidence (orange), clarity (yellow), or wisdom and creativeness (purple). But for heavens sake, do not paint your walls black. You will find your investing tantamount to drudgery as black suggests secretiveness, death and despair. Equally so, consider the colors of your office walls as something that helps trigger desired emotional responses by your employees. Most investors like to think of themselves as perfectly rational and nonemotional in their decision-making. They like to think that they can read the facts, sort the data, look at a chart, do their computations and voila! They have an objective answer. But the truth is that humans are hugely influenced in ways that are far beyond our comprehension. The next time you visit your investment adviser (or if you have none, when you are interviewing advisers), pay close attention to the environment. It is designed to ease you into their practice. The conscious and unconscious bait might be the lavish setting, the pictures of family, the plaques on the walls and the paintings. A high-end office and trimmings suggests that the advisory is hugely successful; the pictures suggest family values; the myriad of plaques suggests accomplishment, training and learning; and the paintings might be making you green with envy that other investors are benefitting from this, but not you.

PAGE 44 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 True employee engagement lies in the little things SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNo one can deny that disengaged employees are less productive, less innovative, less collaborative less everything that leads to successful organizations. Yet despite all the handwringing, no one seems to know what to do about it. Thats not particularly surprising; after all, its not like companies have the money to spend on lavish perks or formal engagement initiatives these days, nor do busy leaders have the time to obsess over such matters. Everyones just trying to survive. But there is some good news. Businessman and author Todd Patkin says true employee engagement neednt be expensive or difficult to implement. Engagement, Mr. Patkin says, is really just another word for on-the-job happiness. And since happiness is connected to the simple things in life, he adds, why not apply that principle to the workplace? Over the years, Ive found that simple things like gratitude, respect and autonomy make people far more happy than, say, big salaries and corner offices, says the author of Finding Happiness: One Mans Quest to Beat Depression and Anxiety and Finally Let the Sunshine In. You might have to put some work into changing the bad leadership habits that might be keeping your employees beaten down and resentful, he says. But doing that work is worth it. Its the cornerstone of a cultural change that will naturally and organically lead to better employee engagement. For nearly 20 years, Mr. Patkin led his familys auto parts business, Autopart International, to new heights until it was bought by Advance Auto Parts in 2005. One of his most reliable growth strategies, he reports, was proactively nurturing his employees attitudes about their jobs. Now, Patkin translates that experience into consulting with organizations to help them build corporate morale and promote greater productivity. Here are eight strategies he offers business owners and managers to start transforming their workplace environment: Catch people doing things right Start each day with the intention of catching as many people as possible doing well. Not only can praise improve your employees perception of you, its also an incredible morale and motivation booster. People love to hear positive feedback about themselves, and in most cases, theyll be willing to work a lot harder to keep the compliments coming, notes Patkin. Praise them publicly (and then praise them some more) Even if they brush off praise or downplay their achievements, everybody loves to be recognized and complimented in front of their peers. Handle mistakes with care In business, mistakes are going to happen. You dont have a choice about that. What you can choose is how you as a leader handle them and by extension, what kind of impact they have on your company. You shouldnt take mistakes, especially those involving negligence, incompetence, or dishonesty, lightly, Mr. Patkin says. But when your employees have made an honest mistake, try to be as understanding with them as you would be with your own family members. Focus on figuring out what went wrong and how to keep it from happening again. Dont be the sole decision maker A unilateral approach to leading your team sends the impression that youre superior (even if thats not your intent) and also contributes to disengagement. Employees who are told what to do feel like numbers or cogs in a machine, Mr. Patkin points out. Yes, you might get the results you want, but never more than that and often, your teams performance will be grudging and uninspired. When you make your employees feel like valued partners by seeking out their opinions, ideas and preferences, he says, theyll be much more invested in your organizations success because they had an active part in creating it. Help your employees grow Dont lose sight of the fact that a crucial part of leadership is developing your people. Ultimately, the success or failure of your business depends on the people who show up each day to do the work, Mr. Patkin says. So place a strong emphasis on developing them And whatever you do, avoid micromanaging, which can give employees the impression that you dont trust them or have faith in them. Remember that business is personal Your employees will be more loyal and more motivated if they feel valued as individuals, not just as job descriptions. So get to know each team member on an individual basis and incorporate that knowledge into your regular interactions. Showing genuine interest and caring is the greatest motivator I know, Mr. Patkin says. When you dare to get personal, your employees desire to please you will skyrocket. Make it a family affair Whenever possible, engage your employees families in a positive way. In addition to holding contests with family prizes and inviting loved ones to company celebrations, make sure that your team members families know how much theyre appreciated by your company. Having a leader validate all the hours each employee spends at work will be remembered far longer than a bonus. Re-recruit your best people Since the buck stops with you, it can be tempting to focus the bulk of your help and encouragement on your lower performers. While it is your duty to help your weak links move up in (or out of) your organization, dont allow them to distract you from your most valuable players. Go as all-out in re-recruiting your top people as you would in attracting new talent.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Dont Be Rigid With the 4 Percent RuleOnce you reach retirement with a nest egg at your disposal, its hard to know how much of your savings you can afford to withdraw and spend each year. A long-standing rule of thumb has been to withdraw 4 percent of it in the first year, adjusting the withdrawal for inflation in subsequent years. This has allowed many investors to tap their portfolios over 30-year spans without running out of money. Its not perfect, however. For starters, the rule doesnt provide as much income as we might want. More important, though, the method is highly dependent on where the stock market happens to be on the day you retire. Think about 2008s market drop of roughly 40 percent and how dramatically it shrank many retirement accounts. You might consider some more flexible alternatives. For example, you might look at the overall markets price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio to judge whether its fairly valued or not. Based on historical comparatives, the more expensive the market is, the less you can safely take out but when the markets P/E is low, you might take as much as 5 or 5.5 percent annually with a high degree of confidence. Adjusting your withdrawals makes sense. During good markets, withdrawals can rise, but if your portfolio doesnt grow, you might give up your inflation adjustment, or even perhaps take a pay cut. Of course, all these methods and how long they suggest your money will last rely on how the stock market has behaved in the past. The future might be different. Still, the idea that you should withdraw less when your investment portfolio is doing badly makes sense intuitively and alternative strategies may help you respond better to changing market conditions after you retire. Remember, too, that you might well live a long time, and youll need your money to last more than 30 years. Consider being aggressive in your savings and conservative in your withdrawals, if possible.

Too Good to Be TrueMy dumbest investment was paying to learn forex online. I was promised returns of 30 to 40 percent if I just followed the daily trades I was shown. I didnt realize what wonderfully great liars salespeople can be! S., onlineThe Fool Responds: The foreign exchange market, or FX, or forex, is used by everyone from tourists to multinational corporations to central banks to do business and maintain stability. It can be handy for some savvy investors in some situations. But when beginning investors and even seasoned ones use it to make speculative bets, it can be a dangerous place.Many people who invested significant sums in the foreign exchange market have been wiped out when currencies dont move in expected ways. A 2011 Los Angeles Times article noted that at two key forex brokerages, customers are losing money in spectacular fashion. Beware of anyone promising fat investment returns in exchange for your hardearned money. Most of us would do well to avoid forex entirely, sticking with more dependable stocks and bonds. Think of successful investing as a marathon, not a get-rich-quick sprint. A Stock in FashionBefore affordable luxury retailer Michael Kors (NYSE: KORS) reported its latest quarterly results earlier this month, Wall Street was expecting less than $860 million in sales. Instead, Michael Kors delivered $1 billion, with sales surging 59 percent over year-ago levels. Earnings per share soared 73 percent. The company is growing at the expense of slower (or fading) competitors. While Michael Kors delivered a whopping increase of 51 percent in North American sales in its last quarter, Coach announced a decline of 9 percent in total sales. Fashion is generally a fickle and competitive business, but Michael Kors is achieving hefty profit margins by differentiating itself with brand value and exclusive designs. Its also doing so in a challenging economic environment in which many other retailers are blaming the unusually cold weather and lackluster consumer spending for their weak results. Michael Kors has plenty of room for expansion, both in the U.S. and in global markets, especially if demand remains as hot as it is. Management believes it has room for nearly 700 global retail stores versus a recent total of 395. The stock trades at a forward priceto-earnings (P/E) ratio near 25. Thats hardly excessive for such an extraordinary growth company, so you might want to take a closer look. (The Motley Fool has recommended and owns shares of Michael Kors and Coach.) I trace my roots back to 1927. Westinghouse Electric bought me in 1995, bought Infinity Broadcasting in 1996, and in 1997 took on my name as its own. Today, based in New York City, Im a mass media powerhouse. My brands include Simon & Schuster publishing, Showtime Networks and Smithsonian Networks, among others. I own Americas most-watched TV network, one of the worlds largest entertainment content libraries, dozens of TV and radio stations, and a billboard advertising business, among other things. I rake in about $15 billion annually, and my logo is a body part. Who am I? (Answer: CBS) Solid Results, Weak MarketQMany companies have been posting solid results in their financial reports lately, so why has the market done a lot of dropping so far in 2014? W.D., MiamiAIts good to think of the overall value of the stock market, or of a single stock, as reflecting what investors think of its future. Its past performance isnt nearly as relevant as whats expected. Also, remember that the S&P 500 surged about 32 percent in 2013, so its reasonable for it to catch its breath a bit. Healthy stocks and the overall market tend to rise in value over time, but they dont do so in a straight line. Volatility is to be expected. Psychology also plays a part, especially in the short run. If theres some bad economic news, investors might get skittish and sell, possibly overreacting, just as good economic reports will send the market up. Think of expectations, too. A company might report a solid quarter, but if investors were expecting even stronger results, the stock might take a hit. ***QThe I Bond was paying zero percent a few years ago. Has its interest rate risen yet? S.G., Decatur, Ill.AYes, its 1.38 percent through April. I Bonds are designed to offer interest rates tied to inflation, which was negative in 2009 but is positive now. Their interest rates have two components: a fixed rate that lasts for 30 years, and an inflation rate that changes every May 1 and Nov. 1. If you expect inflation to rise in the future, I Bonds can help you keep up with it. Still, consider top-quality, dividend-paying stocks, too, as they offer regular income plus probable capital appreciation over time. Got a question for the Fool?

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 BUSINESS B7 UF: Floridians overall confidence in economy stays on even keel THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAFloridians confidence in the economy held steady in February at 78, unchanged from the previous month, according to a new University of Florida survey. We expected little change to the February index given the agreement in Congress that averted another shutdown and debate over the debt ceiling, says Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Respondents overall view that their personal finances are better today than a year ago fell five points to 61; their expectations of being better off economically a year from now also sank five points to 75. The drop was particularly sharp among seniors, although both young and old respondents were pessimistic about their future finances. Its not clear where this growing pessimism is coming from, Mr. McCarty says, unless consumers are anticipating a rise in the cost of borrowing and lower home values. The survey also revealed Floridians confidence in the U.S. economy over the next year rose one point to 77, while their faith in it over the next five years remained unchanged at 81. Their judgment over whether now is a good time to buy big-ticket items such as automobiles rose eight points to 94, the highest number since April 2007. Along with the absence of political drama, a mixture of good and troubling economic news could help explain Floridas unchanging confidence level. The states unemployment rate in December was 6.2 percent, down two-tenths of a percent from November and lower than the national 6.6 percent level. (February figures are not yet available.) While the unemployment rate was little changed, the number of jobs created was lower than expectations, Mr. McCarty says, perhaps leading to pessimism about job availability in the coming months. Meanwhile, the median housing price for an existing single-family home fell more than $10,000 in January to $162,500. However, inflation and gas prices remained low. And although the overall stock market value fell by more than 7 percent in January, it regained much of that loss in February. We expect consumer confidence to remain near the current level for the next month or so, Mr. McCarty says, adding media attention on mid-term elections and the Florida governors race should have a greater effect on consumers views than national news.

PAGE 48 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB8 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 of $21,000. Over on the east side of the state, there were more than 9,000 weddings in Palm Beach County with an average spending of $27,000. While the immediate perception surrounding weddings may be emotive, Ms. Crooker says on the business end, Weddings take on a life of their own. Weddings are a lot of money. Experts say every bride eventually figures it out: her wedding will be more expensive than she expected. These days there are no rules when it comes to weddings, but there should be a budget. Its not about putting on a show, its about being true to you. And even though it seems like it might cost too much, hiring a planner or a coordinator could save a bride money. I have one bride who has extremely expensive taste, say Ed Russo, CEO of Planned Perfection in Fort Myers. I can put three options in front of her and shes going to pick the most expensive one, thats who she is. Im there to help bring her back to reality, This is what you can spend. Mr. Russo says brides know what they want, but they dont know what it costs. He keeps a bride happy by keeping her realistic. To be clear, Mr. Russo is a florist. He runs a flower business, not a wedding planning company, but hes really good at planning weddings, so when he makes a connection with a bride, he helps her plan her wedding day. He encourages brides to consider wedding planners or coordinators because they know the vendors and they know where to find the elements that will be most cost-effective for the bride. They are not overwhelmed with emotion but instead focus on the logistics, they remember the flatware and they know how to structure a wedding timeline. They help a bride see her vision and bring it to life. As far as the evolution of weddings, Mr. Russo says brides have really scaled back. Brides are watching their money, just like everybody, he says. Five years ago, he was helping plan weddings for 200 to 300 guests. Now his brides are inviting 50 to 100 of their closest family and friends. Its still their dream wedding, but on a smaller scale. Charlotte Hare, national president of the National Association of Wedding Professionals, sees weddings becoming more and more elaborate gelato bars, cigar rollers, photo booths with green screens. If a brides friend did it last year, she feels she has to go bigger and better and different, Ms. Hare says. Owner of A Red Rose Linens in Palm Beach Gardens, Ms. Hare says many brides want a Ritz Carlton wedding, The Breakers wedding, but theyre on a budget for a hall wedding. She tells engaged couples if they cannot afford a good photographer, wait another year to save money, because the photographs will be how they remember their day. If a bride does not want to splurge on a wedding planner, Ms. Hare suggests a dayof coordinator for peace of mind. The bride and groom dont even know whats happening because the coordinators taking all the heat, fixing everything, making it all run smooth, taking huge amounts of stress off the family so they can enjoy their time with each other and enjoy their day, she says. The one thing she tells every bride who sits in her office: Your wedding day is a regular day. Every day has bumps in the road. There may be an issue, but remember, at the end of the day, you will be married to the person, the best friend you love. Shane McMurray, CEO and founder of The Wedding Report, feels too much emphasis has been placed on the average cost of a wedding, when his research shows 40 percent of weddings spend less than $10,000. Mr. McMurray says wedding-centric publications do not forward this figure because its counter-intuitive to their marketing purpose. Not just brides, but even those in the industry are bamboozled by these figures and feel like when it comes to a wedding, they have to spend all kinds of money, he says. Business-minded bride Courtney Armen says she wanted a high-end wedding, but she didnt have high-end money, so she made her wedding an intimate affair, inviting people who she genuinely cares about and who she knows genuinely cares about her. She had 30 guests on her wedding day. Mrs. Armen helped coordinate 10 weddings before planning her own. The director of group sales at the Naples Zoo, Mrs. Armen oversees events, including weddings. She thought about having her own wedding at the zoo until someone asked her, Whos going to coordinate your wedding? She had a grandiose vision of putting it all together then walking down the aisle, until she heard herself saying it out loud. I work really hard to make a brides wedding experience amazing without her having to worry about anything, she says. I realized it was my turn. Mrs. Armen was married in May 2012 at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. She expected to spend $10,000 to $15,000. She spent $17,000. She gave her bridesmaids diamond necklaces. If she could give brides-to-be a piece of advice, she would say, Pinterest is good to a point Brides want it all but they dont know how to edit Take the 100 pins you like and narrow them down to the five you love. Pick things that represent who you are as a couple on your wedding day. Dont put on a show. Keep it true to you. BRIDALFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe Bridal Blast at Germain Arena in Estero.

Wellington is home to the Palm Beach Polo and Golf Club, where Princess Diana cheered for Prince Charles during a match, and it is also the new home to the Global Dressage Festival. The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, site of the prestigious 12-week Winter Equestrian Festival attended by horse lovers from around the world, is the hub of Wellington. The neighborhood is an enclave of millionaires, billionaires and celebrities and where real estate prices go up the closer one gets to the equestrian center. Some interesting residents include Bill Gates, Tommy Lee Jones and Bruce Springsteen. Currently for sale is this 15-acre estate just minutes to the equestrian center. The 5,700-square-foot residence has four bedrooms, five baths and a separate 750-square-foot guesthouse with an additional bedroom and bath. The saltwater pool has a rock waterfall with water slide and a grotto spa under the falls with its own television and sound system. There is also a swim-up bar. Equestrian facilities include a new 3,000-square-foot barn that also houses a custom car garage and workshop. The barn is ready to be outfitted to the buyers needs.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSThe blindest of datesRecently, a good friend asked if she could set me up on a blind date with a man named Lyle. I think you two would get along, she said convincingly. The last time I went on a blind date, I was still wearing tube tops and miniskirts (not on the date, thankfully). Id almost forgotten the feeling of dread that comes with sitting down to coffee with a man Id never met. But this particular friend is wise and intuitive, and we have similar taste in men. So if she thought he was a good fit, who was I to disagree? Id love to, I told her with only the slightest twinge. Lyle emailed me the next day. His message was brief, but it contained no winky faces, no exclamation points, no misspellings or bad grammar. At least over email, he was a dreamboat. The night of our big date, my bedroom looked like it did when I was a teenager: discarded piles of clothes stacked on the bed, shoes kicked off in the corner, make-up strewn in front of the mirror. You would think I had never been on a grown-up date in my life. At one point I stood in front of the mirror wearing a shimmery gold top before shaking my head and opting for a more muted sweater. The trick with a blind date is looking good enough but not too good. After all, whats the point of impressing someone we might not even like? As for Lyle, I didnt have much to go on. He said he had a beard. And hed be wearing a black coat. He could have been any of the men who walked by me as I waited at the meeting point. I arrived exactly on time, but as I stood there in the cold trying to look nonchalant, the minutes slipped away and I started to have the uneasy feeling I had been stood up. And then something funny happened. A handsome stranger in a black coat walked straight up to me, as if we had known each other all our lives. What if the man of your dreams came up to you and said he thought you were pretty, the man said, and wanted to know if you would run off with him? I smiled, despite myself. He had black hair, a spiked metal ring on his finger, and despite his email message no beard. He looked fierce, a little wild and totally seductive. Did I mention Im good in bed? he said. I laughed, and he stuck out his hand. I took it, and we walked away from the meeting point. Then he stopped and pulled out his phone. Now, if I asked for your number, you might say, Justin, youre crazy. But then I hope youd give it to me anyway. I looked at him. Justin? Who was this guy? Wait a minute, I said. Youre not Lyle? The sexy stranger shook his head. Flustered, I turned to head back to the meeting point as he called out after me, You sure you dont want to come with me? I spent the entire evening wishing I had.

PAGE 84 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 5, 2014 An Evening with Billy Collins>> When: 7 p.m. Monday, March 3 >> Where: The Sanibel Library, Sanibel Island >> Cost: Free >> Info: 472-2483 or >> Note: Event is sold out. To be put on a waiting list, call 472-2483. Mr. Collins has read his poems on Garrison Keillors A Prairie Home Companion numerous times and has been interviewed by Terry Gross on NPRs Fresh Air. Hes even given a TED talk, showing five animated shorts of his poems. When The Sanibel Library announced him as the March 3 speaker in this years Author Series, people lined up before sunrise to wait for tickets, which were quickly snatched up. (To be put on a waiting list, call 472-2483.) Although his poems have been published in The New Yorker and The Paris Review, Mr. Collins is far from being a literary snob; hes also appeared on The Colbert Report as part of what he describes as a rather vigorous book tour in which he visited 5 or 16 cities in 18 days, with just about every conceivable media stop. Though hes used to speaking to crowds and being on radio and, occasionally, television, the thought of appearing on The Colbert Report was amazingly nerve wracking, he says. Publicists from Random House, Mr. Collins publisher, told him to just be himself. Before the show went on the air, Mr. Colbert stopped by the green room. He was very congenial, Mr. Collins says. He said, Im going to be an idiot, and youre just going to be yourself. Allow me some room to be a jackass. And once we sat down at the table, and I was sitting in the hot seat there, it became very entertaining It all went very well. The two even read one of Mr. Collinss poems, To My Favorite 17-Year-Old High School Girl, alternating verses. He connected me to a huge audience, a much younger demographic, which is good for me and good for book sales, the poet says. The interview, which can be seen on YouTube, was part of his book tour for Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems, Mr. Collins 10th and most recent collection of poetry.Finding is voiceLike many teens, Mr. Collins wrote poetry when he was in high school. I look back and wince at the whole thing, he says of his fledgling poems. I didnt publish until I was in my 40s, and didnt take off until my 50s. His career was as a professor of literature. Like most young poets, he started out by imitating poets he admired, including Wallace Stevens and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Instead of being inspired by these fellow poets, I was writing in a parody of their work, a slavish imitation, he says. I think in that period, I was learning something about language, just by writing. Thats how you learn to write, by writing. It wasnt until he was in this 30s that he found a voice that expressed his sensibilities, Mr. Collins says. Then it took another five or so years until I was published. For a while, he published books with the University of Pittsburgh Press. He made the switch to Random House, a bigger, more commercial publishing house, when they made him an offer he couldnt refuse: a six-figure advance for a threebook deal, which is unheard of for poetry. Random House promoted his books and sent him on multi-city tours. He gave readings all over, often selling out venues, which one time led The New York Times to claim he caused the literary equivalent of Beatlemania. In 2001, Mr. Collins was named Poet Laureate of the United States, a position he held for two terms, through 2003. During his tenure, he initiated the Poetry 180 project, which encouraged high school students to read a poem a day for the 180 days of the academic year. The project branched out into two books: Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry and 80 More: Extraordinary Poems for Every Day. The anthologies, he says, were for people who were curious about where poetry has gone since theyd stopped reading it in school. If you picked up the 180 anthologies, you have 180 poets there, and if you liked one of them, you could look up their work. It was a gateway anthology. He also recorded poems for Delta Airlines that people could listen to while they flew. The poems, his own and others, were interspersed with jazz.An off-kilter sensibilityMr. Collins writes poetry that appeals to people who think they dont like poetry. In Cheerios, he writes about discovering hes older than the breakfast cereal. In Hell, he writes: I have a feeling that it is much worse/than shopping for a mattress in a mall. In My Number, he wonders hopefully: Is Death miles away from this house/reaching for a widow in Cincinnati/or breathing down the neck of a lost hiker/in British Columbia? His poems are at once whimsical and realistic, droll and full of surprise. Theyre filled with dogs, snow, mice, jazz, books and death. Theyre playful. For example, Looking for a Friend in a Crowd of Arriving Passengers: A Sonnet, says, for the first 13 lines, Not John Whalen, and concludes, with relief, with John Whalen as the 14th line. Its a sly and clever recreation of waiting for a friend at an airport. Even his book titles, which come from his poems, display his off-kilter sensibility: Horoscopes for the Dead, The Trouble with Poetry, Undressing Emily Dickinson, Picnic, Lightning.Understanding poetry Mr. Collins believes many intelligent, well-educated people are afraid of poetry, something he attributes to the way its taught in school. They begin to think of poetry as a subject in school like trigonometry or astronomy or something, he says something theyll never use once theyre no longer in the classroom. And we pretty much know we didnt need trigonometry after we got out of school, he adds. To those who think poetry is too hard to understand, Mr. Collins says it becomes less difficult the more you read it. Reading prose does not prepare us, in any way, for reading poetry, he says. Its a different skill set, a different set of awareness. It involves a different language awareness and language process. But, he admits, Some poetry is impenetrable. Im not interested in reading that either To me, some poetry is too difficult and some is too easy. I like poetry thats making reasonable demands on my attention. Hes been quoted as saying that 83 percent of poetry isnt very good and adds that, as poet laureate, I didnt want to go out and bang the drum for poetry and say we should read more, because a lot of it is boring.Humor as a deviceThough Mr. Collins poems are often humorous, theyre not light verse, like Ogden Nashs poems. I actually like Ogden Nash, he says. The difference is, with Ogden, the poem has to be funny all the way through. It starts out funny, continues funny and ends funny, so pretty much every line is humorous. In his poems, however, Mr. Collins uses humor as a door into something more serious, a way of breaking down the readers resistance. A poem can start very funny and turn serious; the humor in the beginning is a seductive device to bring readers in, before the poem turns more dark, more complex, or deeper in some way. The opposite is also true, he adds. A poem can start serious and then suddenly stop taking itself very seriously and end on a lighter note. Humor is epistemological, he says, a way of looking at life. I dont sit down and try to be funny, he says. I just pretend to see things from odd angles. Its pretty fruitless to sit down and try to be funny, to make humor a goal, to sit down and be very serious about being funny. Unless youre naturally funny, I dont think its going to hold up on the page. For him, humor is a strategy rather than an end in itself. Im not there to amuse the reader, he says. Im there to explore something. And if humor is one part of the exploration, thats all the better. POETFrom page 1 SUZANNAH GILMAN / COURTESY PHOTOBilly Collins writes poetry for the masses.

We just happen to inhabit it. The cerebral, pipe-smoking detective is enjoying something of a revival recently, with Robert Downey Jr. playing him in movies and Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch playing him on TV (in Elementary and Sherlock, respectively.) Locally, Gulfshore Playhouse opened The Games Afoot on Feb. 23, on the heels of Florida Repertory Theatres production of The Hound of the Baskervilles that opened Feb. 14. Though both involve actors portraying actors playing Sherlock Holmes, and both are comedies, theyre wildly different in tone. The Games Afoot starts out with a bang figuratively and literally as the curtain opens on the last minutes of a play starring Sherlock Holmes. (Cody Nickell, playing actor William Gillette, whos playing Sherlock.) He and his archrival, Moriarty, are facing off. Moriarty jumps out a window to escape, and then the cast takes its bows. But Mr. Gillette spies someone in the audience with a gun, and is shot. Its a great way to open a play, midaction. Unfortunately, the rest of Act I then drags in comparison. Mr. Gillette, who has made a fortune out of portraying Sherlock Holmes for three decades, invites the cast to his home on the Connecticut River for Christmas, where he lives with his dotty mother, Barbara Kingsley. Its a castle, complete with a secret room, a laboratory and a greenhouse. This is where God would live if he could afford it, one guest quips. The set, by scenic designer Robert F. Wolin, is an art deco dream. With scarlet walls, silver trim and black and white detailing, its scrumptious, smart, sleek and stylish. And Mr. Gillette has stocked it with the latest toys of 1936: an intercom that not only connects to the front door but to the other rooms in the house, and a new device called a remote control, which the guests all oooh and aaah over. Mr. Nickells Mr. Gillette is pompous and self-absorbed, and he and the other actors play a seemingly unending game of Can You Top This, quoting Shakespeare at each other. (The phrase the games afoot originally came from Shakespeare.) The characters are so proud of how clever they all are, though it quickly grows tedious.Emily Townley as Madge, an older character actor, provides a break to all that Shakespearean posturing with her smart-aleck comments and no-nonsense demeanor.The other guests include fellow actors Felix (Christopher Gerson), Aggie (Alexis Hyatt) and Simon (Zac Hoogendyk). Its a good thing theyre in a mansion with all that space, because a smaller building wouldnt have enough room to contain all the egos. Claire Brownell injects some energy into the first act as the over-the-top drama critic Daria Chase. Shes come to the mansion because shes working on a story about Mr. Gillette for Vanity Fair. In addition to being a theater critic, shes also a gossip columnist. Shes the type of reviewer actors (and fair-minded critics) hate, as she takes particular delight in skewering performers and writes inflammatory comments just to get a reaction. Ms. Brownell plays her to the hilt, and you get the feeling that playwright Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, The Fox on the Fairway Moon Over Buffalo) is also enjoying the opportunity to turn the tables on a critic. The evening involves a sance thats both spooky and humorous, but nothing much really seems to happen in Act I until theres a murder. Act II is the polar opposite of the opening act. Its almost as if they are two totally different plays. Act I drags and is moderately funny; Act II is full of action and provides the laughs the first hour denied us. The tone just seems off in Act I, as if the actors and director are searching for the right balance of farce and melodrama. They finally find it in the second half of the play. The staging though, in both acts, is off. I wish director Michael Marotta had paid more attention to where his actors are on stage. I sometimes found myself looking at the backs of actors, robbed of the opportunity to see the expression on their faces. Also, on two occasions actors onstage blocked important, key entrances at a door. Sightlines at The Norris Center are notoriously bad, but then to have actors onstage block our view just adds insult to injury. (You know staging is bad when you want to yell at an actor on stage: Move! I cant see whats happening! Why is everyone else gasping in surprise or horror?) Mr. Nickell and Mr. Gerson have some great moments in Act II, as they try to hide a corpse. Much of their communication is silent, done with eyes or facial expressions or gestures. The more panicked and frantic the two grow, the funnier it is. Their lives are complicated not only by a corpse on Christmas Eve and the fact that one of them might be the killer, but by the arrival of Inspector Goring (Julia Brothers) an inspired piece of casting.Ms. Brothers (who also happens to be the daughter of local actor John Brothers) is a marvel to watch as she brings an invigorating energy to the play, with her bemused demeanor and probing questions. Shes an immensely skilled comedic actress, and her appearance in Act II livens up the action considerably and helps set the tone.The Games Afoot is an odd mash-up of melodrama, thriller and farce. If you invest in the slow-moving first act, youll be rewarded in the second. (It might help to think of the first act as the slow, plodding pull up the initial hill of a roller coaster.) But there are many laughs and surprises if you stick around after intermission.

This accounts for 34 total nominations, suggesting an unexpected lack of disparity between the top of the heap and the hundreds of films released in 2013. The reasons for this are numerous: Deep pocket marketing campaigns earn preferential treatment (i.e., theyll be watched before others) for select titles, and a condensed screening schedule for voters forces movies with a true wow factor to pop out. Add in personal preferences, politics and a few other factors, and you have what the Oscars are every year: a celebration of big-name projects and movie stars weve already grown to know and l ove, with only a select few newcomers welcomed to the party. Thankfully, at least one of those newcomers Lupita Nyongo from Years A Slave will win Best Supporting Actress. Her performance as Patsey was bold, powerful and heartbreaking, a true tour-deforce in a film full of harsh and haunting brutality. To win, Ms. Nyongo will have to beat Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle), June Squibb (Nebraska), Julia Roberts (August: Osage County) and Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine). On the strength of her win at the Screen Actors Guild and the fact that Years A Slave is devastatingly gut wrenching, I believe Ms. Nyongo both should win and will win. The lead actress category also has a clear frontrunner in Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine. But for as great as Ms. Blanchett was, Amy Adams exotic elusiveness added true allure to American Hustle, and the movie thrived because of it. It is a smart, sexy performance that hits every note perfectly. Also nominated for lead actress are previous winners Sandra Bullock (Gravity), Dame Judi Dench (Philomena) and Meryl Streep (August: Osage County). This is Ms. Streeps 18th nomination, for those counting. Even though Ms. Adams gave the best performance and should win, I think Ms. Blanchett will win. In the lead actor category, Matthew McConaughey is the strong favorite for his performance as AIDS patient Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club, set in the s at the height of the AIDS crisis. Mr. McConaugheys gaunt, pale and occasionally unlikeable Ron discards the medically prescribed treatment hes receiving and pursues alternative methods to handle his disease. The results are startling, and its a credit to Mr. McConaughey that it all comes to fruition in the performance of his career. Hes up against Christian Bale (American Hustle), Bruce Dern (Nebraska), Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street) and Chiwetel Ejiofor ( Years A Slave).

Similarly, Mr. McConaugheys costar in Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto, is the likely winner for supporting actor. His character, Rayon, is a cross-dressing AIDS patient whos often his own worst enemy. Mr. Leto, who hadnt been on screen for six years prior to this performance, is squaring off against Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Bradley Cooper (American Hustle), Michael Fassbender ( Years A Slave) and Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street). Drag queens and playing against type always go far with the Academy, so although Mr. Fassbender should win, I think its Mr. Leto who will win. Most years the Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture go hand-inhand. Last year was a rare exception, with Ang Lee winning Best Director for Life of Pi and Argo taking the statue for Best Picture. Interestingly enough, this year looks to do the same. Alfonso Cuaron is the likely winner for director for Gravity. Similar to James Cameron and Avatar, Mr. Cuaron invented the technology needed to simulate Sandra Bullock and George Clooney floating adrift in outer space, and the results were jaw-droppingly stunning. Mr. Cuarons contenders: David O. Russell (American Hustle), Alexander Payne (Nebraska), Steve McQueen ( Years A Slave) and the great Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street). Reputable and respected as his colleagues are, without a doubt it is Mr. Cuaron who should win and will win. Even so, Gravity doesnt strike the requisite emotional chord that is often needed to win Best Picture. Nor will the other nominees Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Her, Nebraska, Philomena and The Wolf of Wall Street end up as much competition to Years A Slave and American Hustle. Given that actors comprise the largest branch of the Academy, and American Hustle is so actor-friendly that its nominated in all four acting categories, it has a legitimate chance. Its also an absolute joy to watch, with great hair, makeup and costumes on top of the phenomenal performances. In contrast, some have called Years A Slave the Schindlers List of slavery, and justifiably so. It is an audacious, galling picture that dares to show the unrelenting cruelty that will forever remain a stain on American history. Given its deep emotions and social importance, Years A Slave both should win and will win Best Picture. The 86th Academy Awards will air at 8 p.m. Sunday, March 2, on ABC.

CALL US TODAY FOR HUGE SAVINGS!FIRE PITS HAVE ARRIVED! FLORIDA WRITERSA captivating exploration of the deadly charm of madness In the Blood by Lisa Unger. Touchstone. 352 pages. $25.99. Lisa Unger is the high priestess of the psychological thriller, and with this new book she has both focused and deepened her penetration into the abyss of aberration. This is a remarkable study about people whose feelings are not normal and whose behavior is dangerous. It is also about the threshold between despair and hope, healing and numbing, deceit and brutal honesty. Ms. Unger presents us with states of mind and emotion that we wish to turn away from, but her art is so hypnotic that we cannot. We face this abyss, and we learn by facing it. When we meet Lana Granger, she is struggling through her senior year at Sacred Heart College in The Hollows, an upstate New York community that has been the setting for several of Ms. Ungers novels. Lana is a very private person. She dresses simply and modestly. She avoids touching. She doesnt share much about her background (her father has been convicted of killing her mother) and essentially she lives a life of lies. Over the years, therapy and medication have helped Lana survive her demons, but memories and voices still haunt her. No one really knows her, but those who sense whats beneath the mask are a threat. For these few, can she risk being honest, truly being herself? Lanas college counselor, an expert on abnormal psychology, arranges for her to take a babysitting job with a terribly troubled boy who is enrolled in nearby Fieldstone School, a last-chance institution for kids with severe behavior problems. Luke is a brainy, controlling fellow with a cruel, violent streak that breaks out of control too often. Like many children, he learned early on that his antics make him the center of attention. He knows how to manipulate others to get what he wants. Lana, who understands a great deal about Lukes inner world from her own past, is a skilled adversary, but is she skilled and courageous enough? More and more is at stake as their relationship unfolds. When Lanas best friend, Beck (Rebecca), becomes unexpectedly passionate, the experience is a kind of watershed in Lanas process of self-discovery. Beck claims that she knows who Lana really is. What does this mean? Readers will eventually find out, but soon after the event Beck mysteriously disappears. Since she has run off before, UNGER

However, as time goes by, matters look grim for Lana, who seems to be the last person who saw Beck. The disappearance is reminiscent of the disappearance of another Sacred Heart acquaintance, Elizabeth, who was found dead. Accident? The police suspect a pattern.Is Lana, like her death-row father against whom she testified years ago, a killer? Is there a bad gene, a chemical imbalance In the Blood that predicts her nature? Is similar blood taint part of Lukes make-up? Is anti-social, criminal behavior the result of nature or nurture? Answering these questions involves following the tug of will between Lana and Luke to an unexpected resolution. It also involves discovering the solution to another mystery: Whose voice is behind the chapters that represent detailed excerpts from a troubled journal about raising a child with this same pattern of behavior? Through this device, Ms. Unger is able to give a perspective outside of Lanas a mothers perspective, a voice striving to respond constructively to debilitating circumstances. While reading In the Blood, be prepared to feel a bit squeamish about entering the next chapter, the next twist of plot, the next exhibition of madness, the next acceleration of fear, despair or even more disquieting sheer emptiness. But you will not be able to turn away. Thats Ms. Ungers magic. Of course, we think were safe between the covers of a book but were not. The final revelations are astonishing. Please force yourself not to skip ahead. Play out the game and you wont be sorry.

Mann Hall welcomes War HorseThe National Theatre of Great Britains epic War Horse, winner of five 2011 Tony Awards including Best Play, comes to the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers for eight performances March 11-16. Hailed by The New York Times as theatrical magic, War Horse is the story of young Alberts beloved horse, Joey, who has been enlisted to fight for the English in World War I. His owner, Albert, is not old enough to enlist. Caught in enemy crossfire, the horse ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no mans land. Albert embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, told with some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time. At the heart of War Horse are lifesized puppets that bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on stage. In addition to Best Play, War Horse received Tony Awards for Best Direction of a Play, Best Scenic Design of a Play, Best Lighting Design of a Play and Best Sound Design of a Play. A Special Tony Award was given to Handspring Puppet Company. The play received its world premiere in a limited engagement at the Nationals Olivier Theatre in 2007 and returned to the National Theatre for a second run from 2008-09 before transferring to the West Ends New London Theatre, where it continues to play. The American premiere in spring 2011 was at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in New Yorks Lincoln Center. In addition to Londons West End and the North American tour, War Horse is also currently playing in Australia. BRINKHOFF/MOGENBURG / COURTESY PHOTO A scene from the U.S. national tour of "War Horse.

Naples Princess... KOVEL: ANTIQUESGoat carts good for work and play BY KIM AND TERRY KOVELSpecial to Florida Weekly Energy use and cost are big problems today, but our ancestors found some simple solutions. Conestoga Auction Co. in Pennsylv ania sold a goat cart in 2013 for $236. Was it a toy? A farm tool? Animal power was important in past years. Of course, there were horse-drawn plows and wagons. But there were also dogand sheep-powered treadmills used to help churn butter. Donkeys, mules and, in other countries, elephants and camels furnished power for farm work and transportation. But goat carts have been popular not only for pulling wagons of farm products, but also as entertainment for children. From the late 19th century into the 1930s, traveling photographers took goat cart pictures. A child sat in the cart and the photographer took the cute picture and printed a photograph or a postcard. Dozens of these vintage goat cart pictures, most from Midwestern towns, can be found on the Internet. Iron and tin toys made from about 1890 to 1940 are replicas of children or men in goat carts. This old idea may be coming back. There is now a dog-powered wheelchair for injured veterans. Q: My dresser belonged to my mother. She gave it to me many years ago. One drawer is marked Kroehler, worlds largest furniture manufacturer, Permanized furniture. I would like to sell it, but I dont know how to go about it and how much to ask for it. A: Peter E. Kroehler started out as a clerk at the Naperville Lounge Co. in 1893 and bought the company in 1903. He founded P.E. Kroehler Manufacturing Co. in Kankakee, Ill., in 1911. He merged the two companies with two other furniture manufacturers in 1915 to form Kroehler Manufacturing Co. The Permanized finish was advertised as moisture-proof. The company was sold in 1981. A new Kroehler double dresser and mirror sold for about $175 in 1957. Value today, if its in great condition, is about $200. Q: I have a vase that my mother owned for many years. The top edge is gilt and scalloped and the vase has two handles. The mark on the bottom is Usona over a standing dragon with Goodwin underneath it. Unfortunately, one of the handles broke off so Im sure it isnt worth much, but Id like to know who made it and how old it is. A: The dragon mark was used from about 1906 to 1913 by Goodwin Pottery Co. of East Liverpool, Ohio. The company was in business from 1893 to 1913. You are right the missing handle destroys the value. Q: I have a battery-operated roller-skating monkey called Clancy that was one of my favorite childhood toys. Its hard plastic and is about 22 inches tall. Batteries fit into one of his shoes. His head moves from side to side and he moves forward when you put a coin in his hand or into his hat, which can be attached to his hand. What is Clancy worth today? A: Clancy the Great, a roller-skating monkey, was made by Ideal Toy Co. in 1963. It was designed by Marvin Glass & Associates, a toy design company in Chicago. The toy came with two metal coins. If its in good working condition and you have the original

It is 21 inches wide and 40 inches long. The cart sold for $236 at Conestoga Auction Co. in Manheim, Pa. box, the toy sells for about $100 today. Q: My mother bought me an Elvis Presley overnight case in 1956. The copyright date of 1956 is on the bottom. The case has pictures of Elvis and his autograph on the cover and sides, blue trim and a blue handle. She paid $7 for it at W.E. Walker 5 & 10 cent store, where she worked. Can you tell me the value of it now? A: Elvis Presleys first records were produced by Sun Studio in Memphis, Tenn., in 1954. His rock-and-roll style and suggestive moves made him a popular but controversial figure back then. In 1956 he began recording for RCA and appeared in his first movie. Although he died in 1977, he remains one of the most popular recording stars of all time, with more than a billion records sold. The overnight case was made with blue or brown trim and handles. They have sold at auction for $200 to more than $400. Q: I have an 11-inch frosted glass wine bottle with a music box built into the bottles recessed bottom. The bottle is marked Bols around the bottom, but the wooden bottom of the music box is marked Bottle made in France, Musical unit made in Switzerland. When the bottle is picked up, the music box plays. Theres a little pin on the bottom that winds the music box and stops the music when the bottle is set down. What is the history and value of this bottle? A: The Lucas Bols company, based in Amsterdam, is the oldest distillery in the world. It traces its history back to 1575. But its glass music-box bottles, including examples with a dancing ballerina inside, date from the middle of the 20th century. They usually sell for $20 to $50. Tip: To clean an old teddy bear, cover it with cheesecloth and vacuum it on the low setting. Use a small amount of foam carpet cleaner or foam from Woolite and water. Rinse. Let it dry out of sunlight. Vacuum again. Do not soak the bear in water. The stuffing will be ruined. Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Treat Yourself to a Spa Day with Added Benets.Wine & Food Fest raises $2.5 million for Golisano Childrens HospitalAbout 375 people opened their hearts and wallets at the 2014 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest and raised $2.5 million to benefit the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, the Edison State College pediatric nursing program and Florida Gulf Coast Universitys music therapy program. Childrens charities are our future, says festival co-chair Dorothy Fitzgerald. People have been so generous the guests, chefs, vintners, hosts of the vintner dinners, Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, sponsors its such a wonderful community effort. The high point of the two-day festival was the $200,000 raised by individuals each pledging $5,000 on a painting by 9-year-old leukemia patient Jay Aponte. His Lightning McQueen Strikes Again featured his favorite vehicle from the movie Cars. When Cindy and Richard Harding, and Brooke and Pat Denson learned that the young artist loves cars, they arranged for a ride in a sleek new Corvette right after the auction and, on Sunday after the festival, flew Jay and his mother by private jet to the Daytona 500, where Jay rode in the pre-race parade around the track. Edgar and Tiffany West, who attended this years event, including the private vintner dinner at Rose ODell King and Gary Kings Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm on Friday night and donated a 17-day trip to Southeast Asia that brought in $80,000 at the Saturday auction, had a more personal motivation than most. Our son, Joseph, was diagnosed with leukemia at age 3, says Mr. West. Today, Joseph is a healthy 9-year-old. We credit Dr. (Emad) Salman (Golisano pediatric hematologist/oncologist). He is amazing. We are blessed to have these people, this level of care, here in our own community. That level of care continues to rise as the community responds to the hospitals needs. Auction Lot 10 included three pieces of equipment pediatric cardiologist Eric Eason said will allow him and his staff to better treat young heart patients locally. Dr. Eason urged the cheering crowd, which proceeded to bid in amounts ranging from $500 to $100,000 until $455,000 had been raised, $55,000 more than the cost of the equipment. Adding in this years total, the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest has raised $11.4 million in the past six years, making it the most successful fundraising event in Lee County and one of the top-grossing wine fests in the country. Its organized by SWFL Childrens Charities, a nonprofit organization. The primary beneficiary is the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, which is scheduled to open in 2016 at HealthPark Medical Center in south Fort Myers and will serve families from Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties.

To honor the Conservancys golden anniversary, the owner of Port Royal Jewelers has offered a breathtaking 4.82-carat fancy yellow cushion-cut diamond and a custom setting to the winning bidder at the upcoming Magic Under the Mangroves. The special stone is symbolic of a unique and special friendship, according to Mr. Boyajian. He shares the story of the moment when the stars aligned and he knew this diamond was the perfect piece for the Conservancys 2014 gala: He was working with the stone in Los Angeles when it occurred to him that he would be celebrating his 50th birthday at nearly the same time the Conservancy would be celebrating its 50th anniversary. This is my largest donation yet, and I couldnt be happier than to combine the celebration of this special piece, my birthday and the Conservancys golden anniversary, he says. I believe that together we can create a lasting legacy of commitment to conservation. The winner Magic bidder will receive more than an amazing diamond, as the auction lot includes the opportunity to work with Mr. Boyajian to create a custom piece incorporating the diamond that reflects the new owners personal taste. This includes a choice of yellow gold, white gold or platinum, additional stones and Mr. Boyajians handmade artistry. To everyone who supports the Conservancy with a continued effort to protect the natural beauty and wildlife that is a part of our community, thank you, the jeweler says. You dont have to attend the Magic Under the Mangroves in order to enjoy a piece of the Magic. Live auction items may be secured by phone the evening of the event Thursday, March 6, or a Conservancy staff member can bid for you up to your maximum approved amount.

Brown, Brian McNamara, Terry Serpico, Drew Fuller and Jeremy Davidson. Q: Whatever happened to Golden Boy? I never saw a finale episode for it. Is it gone for good? Diane B., via emailA: After airing on CBS for one season, Golden Boy fell victim to the old mediocre ratings syndrome and was canceled this despite the fact that the show, which followed the meteoric rise of Walter Clark, an ambitious cop who became the youngest police commissioner in New York City history, received glowing reviews from critics and audiences alike. Q: I was glad to read in your column that Game of Thrones is returning to HBO on April 6. Does that mean season three will be out on DVD soon?

The winemakers seem to enjoy coming as much as we love having them.This is the only charity event I do, says winemaker Mike Smith of Myriad Cellars of Napa Valley. I know where all the money goes, and that is important to me. This auction is different because its driven by a small, focused group of people that are so generous; its local people putting up their money to improve their community.Thats not to say Mr. Smith doesnt donate elsewhere, but he doesnt personally attend other events. Word spreads. Michael Browne of Kosta Browne, this years signature vintner, learned of the event through Joe Anderson of Benovia Winery, a previous signature vintner. To find out more about the outstanding wines of Kosta Browne, check out my column that ran Jan. 16 (find it in the Florida Weekly archives at www. Heres a rundown of some of the wines I sampled at the wine fests grand Tasting and auction this past Saturday: MacPhail Chardonnay Gaps Crown Sonoma Coast 2011 ($45): Rich gold in color, opening with lemon and apple, followed by tropical fruit in a lush mouthful of flavor. Creamy finish has a touch of oak. MacPhail Pinot Noir Gaps Crown Sonoma Coast 2010 ($50): Rich and full bodied with an underlying acidity, it opens with aromas of red berries and cherries, expanding onto the palate with raspberries and spices. Lots of juicy fruit flavors, leading to the smooth, balanced tannin and oak finish. MacPhail Pinot Noir Toulouse Vineyard Anderson Valley 2010 ($50): Rich, dark colors with raspberry and cherry on the nose and palate, with juicy flavors mixing with a note of mocha, followed on the finish with balanced oak. MacPhail Ros of Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2012 ($20): Made from 100 percent pinot noir, this is a delightful and very food-friendly wine, with cherry and raspberry flavors and aroma, ending with a tasty, spicy, clean finish. One of only two wines I went back to after trying a generous selection of other offerings. McGah Cellars 1070 Green Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($25): Lemon-yellow color with citrus and white flowers on the nose, followed by a creamy lime on the palate and a crisp mineral finish. Great for hot summer afternoon get-togethers. McGah Cellars Scarlett Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 ($60): Dark and rich in color with blackberries and cocoa on the nose. The palate adds dark fruit flavors and spices ending with smooth tannins on the long finish. Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard 2011 ($150): The name is quite a mouthful, and the wine even more so. Dark ruby in color, it opens big on the nose with rich, complex dark fruit and earthiness, and a touch of spice. The palate continues with layers of blackberry, cocoa and minerality and ends with a balanced and well-integrated finish. Nicolas Perrin Hermitage Blanc 2011 ($70): A blend of marsanne and rousanne grapes from this historic district in northern Rhone Valley of France, the nose starts with creamy peach and melon notes followed on the palate with mango and tropical flavors, and ending with an extended dry finish. Nicolas Perrin Condrieu 2011 ($70): 100 percent viognier gives this estate wine a pale yellow color with a light, racy aroma of citrus and flowers. The palate opens up with additional juicy peach flavors, all leading to an extended finish with a mineral note. The second wine I tried a second time. Nicolas Perrin Cote Rotie 2010 ($80): Rich in color and flavor with a flowery aroma of blackberry followed by flavors of dark raspberry and currants, and ending with a silky, drawn-out finish. Nicolas Perrin Ermitage 2010 ($100): Dark purple colors with heady cherry and dark berry on the nose, followed on the palate with layers of dark fruit entwined with exotic spices. Intense fruit is driven by the mineral and acid backbone, ending with a long and lasting presence in the mouth. Von Strasser Gruner Veltliner Diamond Mountain Napa Valley 2012 ($40): This unusual wine has a bouquet of peach and citrus, joined on the palate with green apple and fresh tropical fruit and ending in an off-dry finish.
