TRASHtalkingLola Moore felt rather adrift when she and her late husband Al moved to Naples in 1999. The couple came to the area from northern Virginia when Mr. Moores employer, United Airlines, transferred him to Southwest Florida International Airport. It was one of several work-related moves they made during his airline industry management career. At each stop, Mrs. Moore, a real estate broker, was able to connect with strong civic and social organizations, particularly those catering to black professionals such as herself. In Collier County, however, she found no established support system specifically for black professionals upon arriving in Collier County. So she set about rectifying that situation, an effort that led to her creating the Golden Links social, networking and welcoming club for black women in 2000. Her husband did the same, ultimately helping to found B.R.O.M.E.O. Black Retired Old Men Eating Out a social group that meets monthly for breakfast to socialize and network.

But their children still have time. That way, they can ladle much more than their full share of soup from the tax-funded trough known as Enterprise Florida, like so many others are doing. Enterprise Florida is a state agency operating out of Tallahassee. Its tasked with bringing companies and jobs from the nation and the world to Florida. Last year, EFs budget of $57.4 million came almost completely from taxpayers 97.6 percent, or about $56 million. The rest came from private donors, which is why EF likes to call itself a publicprivate agency. EFs CEO, Gray Swoope, has a big, warm Southern smile. Gov. Rick Scott says hes doing a fabulous job. Mr. Swooped came into the fabulous job from another taxpayer-funded position in Mississippi, where he grew up, according to an online biography, and from which he brought two of his Enterprise Florida staffers, Chief Operating Officer Graff Salmon and Chief Marketing Officer Melissa Medley. So, from Mississippi, we have Mr. Swoope, Graff Salmon and Melissa Medley (GS, GS and MM). The three of them have the sole Power of Spend (POF) as I call it, known more formally as Unlimited Signing Authority. Unfortunately, the acronym for that almost unheard-of power is USA. Get this: They are the only three citizens in a state of some 19.65 million people, a state that will surpass New York this month to become the third-largest in the United States, according to demographers, who are authorized to spend money for Enterprise Florida literally to sign off on contracts and purchases that nobody would think of. And all in the name of We The People. Theyre buying crucial things at least for anybody with a five-gallon bucket: luxury suites at Yankee Stadium in New York for $22,000. Or $13,000 for who knows what at the San Diego Zoo. Or $12,000 for Texas Rangers baseball. Or money for limousines and fancy restaurants and charter fishing boats. And this: about $30,000 a month for 20 months, on credit cards. Those purchases are undefined. The records dont show how that money was spent, but they should. This fact, however, is clear: You paid for them. I didnt come up with this out of the blue. It was reported recently by a scrappy CBS-12 television news reporter in Palm Beach County named Michael Buczyner, who got the public records for 20 months of Enterprise Florida spending, ending last August. Then Dan Krassner, who heads a non-partisan outfit called Integrity Florida, demanded that Gov. Scott investigate his own agency and his own employees (see As it turns out, neither conservatives nor liberals like whats happening in Gov. Scotts businessgrowing outfit. But theres more that wasnt reported by Mr. Buczyner or Mr. Krassner last week. In November, the governor gave Gray Swoope a 25 percent raise in pay and benefits, bringing his take to as much as $375,000.Some of it (a little of it) is covered by private donations, which come in part from companies whose representatives sit on the board of Enterprise Florida. Is all this unethical? Not according to the governor, the EF staff or the companies taking your money. But heres the real answer in one word: yes. Meanwxhile, when I looked through the records, I discovered that in my next life I need to return as a consultant. An outfit called Advanced Consulting Corp., for example, got the following 22 payments in 20 months, and let me list them for your amusement, before I total them: $22,473.68. Followed by $410.70, $22,785.17, $900, $22,858.43, $22,890.14, $23,890.14, $23,121.92, $23,435.70, $23,435.70 well, this is tedious. The total: more than $306,700. What does ACC do? I have no idea. But heres what they claim. Advancement Consulting Corp. helps not-forprofit and business leaders develop vibrant and productive organizations that change the world. Oh yeah? And what else? Develop a more effective fund-raising program or launch a major capital/endowment campaign. Recruit, mobilize and train a more effective board. Apparently not. But yes, they take your money in large quantities. There are many more: North Star Destination Strategies, for example (I just picked these randomly from the 102-page report): theyll give your community a name, they claim (could it be better than the one you have already?). NSDS got $92,500, $66,250, $14,323, $1,405.43 and a payment of $41,250 in a 20-month period. Theres The Aerospace Alliance, which received two $25,000 payments a month apart; theres a $46,000 payout to Atlas Advertising, and a $176,727 payment last March to Bank of America, one of the wealthiest corporations and rated either the No. 1 and No. 2 bank in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Since they wont, let me thank you for your service in helping them get richer. There are two wire transfers of $50,000 and $75,000 to BAC Funding Corp., committed to the creation and long range development of a successful entrepreneur and business class in South Florida, to include Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, and almost half-a-million dollars ($486,000 or so) paid out to the Latin Chamber of Commerce in Miami. But thats small potatoes. There were payments totaling almost $1.5 million to Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Florida, whose representatives sit on the Enterprise Florida Board. Let me ask just one question of you, since youre paying for all this. Why? Why are we trying to create more jobs that bring more people who require more services and more taxpayer money when the state is already almost overwhelmed? We rank near the bottom of the 50 states in education spending. That shows in our education quality. We have a million uninsured people who go to the emergency room for treatment when its too late to do it cheaply, and the Republican-led state House of Representatives has turned down $51 billion in money taxpayers have already provided to care for them, because its coming back to us from the federal government. Is growth both the concept and the word sacrosanct? Well, you decide. u o N t a d

Lumumba died unexpectedly at the age of 66 of an apparent heart attack. Last June, he won the mayoral race in this capital of Mississippi, a city steeped in the history of racism and violence. He was a champion of human rights, a pioneering radical attorney, a proud Black Nationalist and a dedicated public servant. While his friends, family and allies mourn his death, there is much in his life to celebrate. First, take a step back, and look at the history of Jackson, Miss. As my Democracy Now! news hour co-host, Juan Gonzalez, pointed out when we interviewed Lumumba the day after he was elected, Jackson was a center of racism and racial oppression over centuries. The city was named after Andrew Jackson by the white settlers when Jackson, in 1820 was able, as Indian commissioner, to pressure the Choctaw Indians to give up 13 million acres of land ... in the Treaty of Doaks Stand. Thats why the white settlers named the city after Jackson, because of his success at ethnic cleansing. Jackson, Miss., where the NAACPs first field secretary for Mississippi, Medgar Evers, was assassinated on the evening of June 12, 1963. This city is just 80 miles from Philadelphia, Miss., where Freedom Summer activists Andrew Goodman, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner were murdered, and 95 miles from Money, Miss., where 14-year-old Emmett Till was kidnapped, tortured and murdered in 1955 for allegedly wolf-whistling at a white woman. Jackson, Miss., is the political, economic and historic center of so much violence and racial hatred, which is why Lumumbas victory in the mayoral race held such import. Lumumba told me last June, I attribute the victory that we had this last week to the people, the people of Jackson, who were more than ready to have leadership that was forward-looking and ready to raise Jackson to a different level of development, ready to embrace the ideas that all government should do the most to protect the human rights of the people. He was dedicated to human rights, and was embarking on a progressive agenda for the city. His slogan read One City, One Aim, One Destiny. Lumumba was born Edwin Finley Taliaferro, in Detroit. His parents involved him with civil-rights organizing at an early age. Lumumbas explanation to the Jackson Free Press on how he changed his name is worth repeating. He said: I picked the name Chokwe because in my African history class I learned that the Chokwe tribe, which is a tribe that still exists, was one of the last tribes to resist the slave trade successfully in northeast Angola. The name literally means hunter. The second name, Lumumba, was the name of a great African leader who began to lead Africa to decolonize, to independence. He was from the Congo. Lumumba means gifted. So literally, it means gifted hunter. He became a lawyer, and represented people like the activist Assata Shakur and the rap artist Tupac Shakur. He successfully appealed to the governor the life sentences of two sisters, Gladys and Jamie Scott, imprisoned for the robbery of $11. They were released after serving 16 years in prison. In 2009, he ran for and won a seat on the Jackson City Council. Four years later, he became mayor, with an ambitious agenda and strong public support. Just this past month, on Jan. 14, the voters of Jackson approved an increase in the local sales tax of 1 percent. Along with increases in the water and sewer rates, Lumumba was going to raise $700 million to improve the citys infrastructure, and leverage that for more funding through bonds. He told me: We are a population here now in the need of a lot of development. Development is one of the tracks or one of the roads to human rights and to the recognition of human rights, especially our economic human rights. Lumumbas sudden death has left his broad community reeling. A close ally of Lumumbas, Bill Chandler, executive director of the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, told me, We look forward to continuing his vision for the city of Jackson. The new, publicly approved sales tax went into effect March 1. On the first weekend in May, a conference that Lumumba helped organize, Jackson Rising, will take place, promoting economic alternatives like cooperative business ownership. The inspired vision of Chokwe Lumumba continues. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,200 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority, a New York Times best-seller.A military budget of delusionThe Obama administration says that we need to end what it calls the era of austerity in Washington. Notably excluded from this admonition is the one department of government that is actually experiencing austerity worthy of the name. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel unveiled a military budget that will reduce the U.S. Army to pre-World War II levels. The spin is that this will be a smarter force better suited to 21stcentury challenges, but everyone knows that it is all about accommodating the trillion dollars in defense cuts adopted during the recent Beltway budgetary wars. We obviously arent at the same point as the British in the 19th century, when Bismarck scoffed that if the British army invaded, hed have it arrested. But 570,000 troops were barely enough to fight the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and the Hagel budget will take us to 450,000, or if the defense sequester isnt further relaxed even fewer. It is not quite true that the cuts are undertaken without any strategic thought. The Obama administrations strategic thought is... that we need no strategic thought. Understandably, we dont want to fight another grinding ground war. But this doesnt mean we wont have to, or we wont experience other nasty surprises. It is an unfortunate part of the American tradition to convince ourselves, when we find it convenient, that the world is not a dangerous place that always demands our attention, or else. In 1939, the United States had an Army of 185,000 men on the cusp of historys most cataclysmic war. We believed conflicts could always be worked out among nations, and that war served no ones interests, and so it was a thing of the past. It was odd, the late historian Stephen Ambrose writes, that a nation that had come into existence through a victorious war, gained large portions of its territory through war, established its industrial revolution and national unity through a bloody civil war, and won a colonial empire through war, could believe that war profited no one. But so it did. As soon as World War II ended, we embarked on a carelessly precipitous demobilization that junked one of the most fearsome Western armies ever assembled. Just having liberated Europe, we still managed to find ourselves unprepared for the onset of the Korean War. Defenders of the current defense cuts say that we still spend more on our military than anyone else in the world. True, but we arent a mere regional power. Unless we want to outsource patrolling the global sea lanes to China and the security of Europe to Russia, we will always have to spend substantially more than anyone else does. Our allies arent in any position to pick up the slack. When the French army wants to go anywhere, we have to fly it. The entire British navy is smaller than the fleet sent to take back the Falklands in the 1980s. President Barack Obama is a devoted believer in the efficacy of government spending as government spending on everything but defense. In 2009, it was $800 billion for stimulus but not a cent for defense. We may not regret it this year or the next. But regret it we will. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

We can help.Patrick M. Flaharty, (239) 415-7576 We are proud to offer a new non-surgical breakthrough. Before After CSCAPESMissing the boatFor the last four years, the nations real estate market has operated under the pall of wait-and-see. This was understandable given dropping prices, escalating foreclosure rates, the growth in consumer debt and the general instability of the world economy. But if you havent noticed, most of that is over. While there is still some uneasiness in the economy, prices are back up, inventory is way down, the majority of foreclosures have worked their way through the system and interest rates remain at record lows. In other words, for many people, now is the time to buy. Now before interest rates edge up. Now before inventory becomes even sparser. Now before politics and global warming and the phase of the moon shake the economy. And, most importantly, now before demand drives prices up, just as we all know it will. Ask even skeptical people and they will agree that now may be the time to act, but many will also stop short of declaring that the economy is in recovery lasting recovery, that is. And therein lays the stalemate. Among those of us who have been in the residential real estate industry for many years, no one can remember a time when all the positive factors lined up so well and the negative factors were largely imaginary. And so, once again, the decision to buy or sell falls to the individual, is tempered by emotion and hunch and, this time, will likely be set into action by the fear of missing the boat. If youre one of the millions of potential buyers who are waiting it out on the sidelines, please ask yourself a few telling questions: How much activity that is, how many people will have to buy or sell before you act on your housing needs and instincts? How many open houses will need to pop up in your dream neighborhood before you decide to make a day of it to see whats out there? How many new developments will have to get underway before you decide to check out the pre-construction pricing? How many ads will have to scream 3 percent rates for 30-year fixed mortgages before you pick up the phone? How many more months will your money sit in a brokerage account or in the bank, earning less than 1 percent interest, before you decide to monetize that cash into something you will love and enjoy for years, maybe even pass on to your children and grandchildren? And finally, how many more years will you pay ever-increasing rental fees to escape the cold and snow up north for a mere month or two before you realize that you could be here from September through May? At not much more than youre currently paying? While youre building equity? While youre making family memories? While youre living the life you dreamed youd someday live? Of course, these are questions only you and your family can answer, but deciding is not as complicated as it seems. If youre happy where you are, great. But if you ever see yourself moving up, downsizing of making a lateral move to a part of town youve always loved, then take these factors into account: None of us is getting any younger (dammit, but thats the reality). The chore (and cost) of moving will not become any easier next year or the year after; The enjoyment of ones home is ranked second only to family when it comes to overall contentment, so why postpone it? The time to hesitate (and be lost) is over. Its time to get on with your life and move in to the place youve always wanted while the opportunity still exists. In other words, its time to give yourself permission to live again if only for the one purchase that matters most. Realtor Cheryl Turner has been missing the boat for the past 14 months, not because she doesnt like boating, but because shes been too busy helping others not miss the boat.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 the region straddle one massive heap of detritus in some distant, dystopian future. Florida is also pushing counties to recycle at least 75 percent of their solid waste by 2020, a goal the legislature enacted as a statute in 2008. So many people arent aware they just throw it at the curb and it goes away. But theres a whole world that happens to it after that, said Molly Schweers, Lee County solid waste coordinator. For a glimpse into this epic world of rubbish, Florida Weekly visited the solid waste hubs in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties. They process close to 2 million tons of material every year, the facilities reported. The coastal stretch is home to an estimated 1.1 million people, a population that could grow to 1.8 million residents by 2040, a University of Florida projection shows. We each produce four to five pounds of garbage per day by the federal governments average. When Southwest Florida landfills began operating in the mid-1970s, nearly everything was buried. Officials recalled that smelly methane gas produced by decomposing trash amassed in huge bubbles. It rolled underneath tarps stretched over the surface of landfills before leaking out into the air. The process was called whaling because the gas bubbles looked like a Goodyear blimp or a whale on its side, said Dan Rodriquez, Collier Countys solid waste management director. Now, gas wells trap methane and its used to generate electric energy that goes back into the grid. Each county now also offers single stream recycling. Residents toss recyclables in one container and theyre separated by machine elsewhere. Charlotte County was the most recent to start using the method. Its so much easier to recycle now, said Charlotte Commissioner Tricia Duffy. Just in our own home, its cut our trash in half. And that just happened in the last four or five months. The system requires that people separate trash such as plastic bags or wrapping, and loose or shredded paper from recyclables like water bottles, junk mail, and tin cans. Waste-to-energy programs and efforts to reuse and recycle help counties keep the cost low for this most basic of government services. In unincorporated Charlotte County, thats $148 per year for one residence; in Lee, $178; and in Collier, $173. Thats the same for each household no matter the appraised property value or the number of people living there. What other essential service can you buy for less than $15 a month? Its a real bargain, said Lindsey Sampson, the long-time director of Lee Countys solid waste division. Recovering waste Lindsey Sampson kicked a small, filthy cabbage back into a larger pile of garbage from which it had rolled. A soccer cabbage, he commented, smiling good-naturedly. It was in a dim, dusty warehouse-like space in east Lee County. Residential and commercial garbage trucks, which begin picking up trash before sunup, pull in here 12 hours a day. Among our multi-faceted garbage, this is a destination for things we cant recycle. About 1,800 tons of it per day is burned here at temperatures topping 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. Generators harness the energy that creates, enough electricity to power about 36,000 homes. Steam is released through a 275-foot flue outside that juts up into the sky, a monument to municipality. There is a sour, complex aroma inside that at first makes it impossible to take a deep breath without gagging a little. As trucks unload refuse in staggering volumes, a front-end loader pushes it ever forward into the pit, a 30-foot deep concrete bunker lit by pale orange bulbs that bring to mind parking lots at night. Blackbirds and egrets search for scraps in the gloom. As in a classic arcade game, two enormous grapple claws reach into the pit. But instead of goofy stuffed snakes or bags of pirates gold, they grab somewhere between 6,000 and 10,000 pounds of garbage and drop it into an incinerator that never stops burning, day or night. Outside this room at Lee Countys rural 300-acre central waste processing site, which opened in the early 1990s, the air is fresh and clean. Abutting the property is Buckingham Community Park and Little League fields. The countys active landfill, where ash from the incinerator is shipped, actually sits elsewhere. Lee long ago agreed to process Hendry Countys trash in exchange for building a landfill there. After the burning process, machines also separate out useable metals, such as aluminum, that are melted down. The idea is to recover in a practical way either material or energy, said Mr. Sampson. In all, the county with its 643,000some residents processes more than 900,000 tons of material per year in a number of different ways. For instance, mulch is turned to compost, much of it sold in Hendry County and deposited at citrus groves. Its all weighed in at the scale house. Much also ends up at a vast recycling facility filled with bales of different materials such as aluminum cans or paper. Lee County is consistently ranked in the top five of the states 67 counties for recycling, which Mr. TRASHFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSIn Lee County, garbage is dumped onto the tipping floor, pushed into the storage pit and moved by the grappling hook into the furnace hopper. The weigh station at the Collier County landfill, where trucks come and go. All the material generated in the county comes thro ugh here, and the entire landfill area is closely monitored from this point.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 NEWS A9 Sampson attributes to a combination of the system he runs and private businesses (including big box stores) that handle their own recycling. Officials expect Lees landfill to last another 15 years as it operates now, before filling up. After that, the county will likely need another landfill, and to look at options such as building another waste-to-energy facility, Mr. Sampson said. He adds that projections are always subject to change.Keeping it cleanMichael Stark sat in a white pickup truck at the top the landfill in south Collier, an observation point for tours of the facility. It was a blustery day but the smell of garbage wasnt on the wind or anywhere else. This is one of the cleanest landfills youll see in the state of Florida, pointed out Mr. Stark, manager of solid waste operations. The county uses the services of Waste Management to operate the facility. Far off to the left, dump trucks unloaded their haul on a lower hill. Its kept relatively smell free by spraying it with Posi Shell, an environmentally friendly concrete mix that hardens over the top. A column of birds dominated by turkey vultures but including a wide variety such as bald eagles and egrets rose and swirled above this central scavenging site. Among other wildlife here are deer and raccoons the size of Rottweilers, Mr. Stark added. Meanwhile, trucks arrived at the scale house at the entrance to the property. Everything coming in is weighed and cameras there monitor the entire property. Trucks or vendors dropping off other types of garbage construction material, for instance, or concrete used to build artificial reefs are directed to specific areas of the landfill. Off to the right of Mr. Stark, another hill was filled to capacity. And in the middle was a long low basin where heavy equipment shaped horticulture waste into Twinkie-shaped rows designed to allow the material to heat up enough in the middle to properly break down. Eventually this will be one big hill, Mr. Stark explained, with everything filled, left, right and center. The 312-acre site started accepting solid waste in 1976. About 203,000 tons of it was disposed of in the landfill last year, while more than 711,000 tons were diverted for other uses or recycled. In the mid-2000s, Collier projected the landfill would run out of room by 2017. Now that projection is 2070, a much longer time frame that leaves officials optimistic that changing technology could by then help them divert even more materials from any future landfill. Two things changed. The landfill got bigger while the county aggressively expanded recycling efforts, doubling its rate of reprocessing materials in the last 12 years. Weve had a dramatic reduction with the amount of material thats been going to the landfill, said Mike Bosi, planning and zoning director in Collier. In general, residents in Southwest Florida have reached Floridas 75 percent recycling goal, while businesses lag behind. Unlike people at home, businesses may hire their own private companies or haul their recyclables to Collier facilities themselves instead of using the county system. That makes it easier for some to cut costs or hassle by skipping that step and tossing everything in the dumpster, explained Mr. Bosi. In Collier County, residents recycle close to 80 percent of their waste products; businesses, 41 percent. Too, Collier was permitted to build its landfill close to double its current height, to 200 feet, or nearly 20 stories above the ground. Elsewhere in the facility, wells collect methane gas that is burned by generators, creating enough electricity to power about 28,000 homes. Storm water runoff or other liquid that seeps through the landfill called leachate, or landfill gravy, is funneled out to a wastewater treatment facility. And a hazardous waste facility processes millions of pounds each year; including 54,000 pounds of fluorescent bulbs in 2013. The birdsThe sky above the Charlotte County landfill is so full of birds as to actually seem ominous, as if Alfred Hitchcock were directing them. Most of the ground close to where the garbage is dumped, pulverized and buried is also covered by them: a field of seagulls here, another of blackbirds there. Most of all, there are turkey vultures. Its not uncommon for the birds themselves to attract wildlife photographers, confirms Richard Allen, the countys solid waste operations manager. Driving a truck up a dirt road toward the spot where semi-trucks stop to unload non-recyclable garbage, Mr. Allen identifies a number of bald eagles among the crowd. At the top of this section of the landfill, about 80 feet up from the ground, the high-rise condos of downtown Fort Myers are just visible on the southern horizon. Here, a bulldozer with metal cleats helps tear, shred and pulverize what the semi-trucks are unloading.

With an estimated 163,000 residents, Charlotte has about half the population of Collier and a little more than a quarter the size of Lee. The facility processes some 350 to 400 tons of material per day that come through the scale house. The entire one-square mile property sits just past the Lee County line off U.S. 41. About a third is conservation lands. While some of the trash is buried, other items brought to the landfill are sorted into piles that can be reused for something else, such as tires that might be shredded to ultimately make a playground surface. Some debris is turned into woodchips and used during the rainy season, scattered on the landfills muddy roads to give trucks easier passage. A new facility that opened about a month ago, run by a company called Synagro, mixes sludge with yard waste to create compost. The site also includes wells that collect methane gas released by decomposing garbage. It is funneled to two engines that burn it and convert the energy to electricity, enough to power about 3,500 homes. An adjacent green hill, 130 feet tall, is a closed landfill that contains only construction debris. And about 190 acres are reserved for future expansion. That would likely include another landfill and possibly a larger waste-to-energy system. The current dump is projected to last until 2030, and look like a tiered cake once complete. But a recent switch to single stream recycling and developing technologies could help it last longer, officials say. Starting last year, residents were able to put all their recyclables in one container. A company that contracts with Charlotte County, Waste Management Inc., processes them at a facility in Tampa. If the county and the citizens are doing a really good job on recycling that could extend that (landfills) life, Mr. Allen said. Creating a new landfill will likely be necessary. But its a time consuming, expensive process that can cost between $500,000 and $700,000 per acre to build, he pointed out.

For more information, call 263-9521 or visit Golf clubs face off in fun rivalry for The Immokalee Foundation SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYA day filled with golf, camaraderie and fun is on tap as foursomes from some of Southwest Floridas most prestigious communities and golf clubs, along with the clubs pros, hit the links at The Old Collier Golf Club in Naples. A benefit for The Immokalee Foundation, the eighth annual Inter-Club Challenge takes place Monday, May 5, pitting golf club against golf club in a friendly rivalry designed to help ensure a brighter future for the children of Immokalee. For more than 20 years, TIF has been dedicated to strengthening the Immokalee community with programs ranging from early childhood literacy education to college prep and advanced vocational training. Today, the foundation fosters a brighter future for students by building individual plans that nurture each childs development as a student, a citizen and a future professional. The Inter-Club Challenge is the first in a series of fundraising events designed to provide students with the tools, opportunities and encouragement needed to succeed at each level of their education and in their careers. This years tournament is under the direction of 2014 Inter-Club Challenge chair and TIF board member Michael Benson, chairman and CEO of Insurance Management Consultants LLC. Joining him on the Inter-Club Challenge committee are Chuck Campbell, Kevin Johnson, Don Gunther, Mark Lye, Iain Mossman and Steve Waugh. Mr. Benson happily gives his time and resources to an organization that delivers results. With a 100 percent graduation rate for students involved in its programs, we know the TIF model works, he says. We are helping to provide education and opportunity to kids and giving hope to a community. Cheering on teams from area clubs and assisting with the days activities will be students from TIF programs. the kids will also have the chance to play with the teams, allowing them to interact with their benefactors and pro golfers. Charity Gonzales, a TIF Take Stock In Children participant, is a high school junior gearing up to play in her fourth Inter-Club Challenge. She says she likes the camaraderie playing alongside benefactors builds. Everyone is always so nice, and its not only exciting to do something they do, but to realize they like to have fun, too, she says. Ms. Gonzales began attending TIFs programs when she was in the seventh grade and appreciates the opportunities shes been given. Ive met so many people and learned to talk and interact with others, and even speak in front of large crowds. Its not only students that are grateful. Many of the philanthropic golfers say meeting the kids whose dreams they are helping to set in motion is the best part of their day. Participation in the Inter-Club Challenge is $1,250 per golfer or $5,000 per foursome. Registration, breakfast and driving range practice begin at 8 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9:15 a.m. Lunch starts at 2 p.m., when prizes will be awarded to the winning mens and womens teams, as well as a closest to the pin. Numerous underwriting opportunities are available for individuals and corporate partners, including hole sponsorships starting at $750 that help raise additional funds for TIFs mission in Immokalee. The 2013 Inter-Club Challenge raised more than $154,000 for the students of Immokalee. The goal this year is to increase that amount so that even more students can benefit from TIF programs. After the tournament, the largest fundraising event of the season is the Charity Classic Celebration, which will take place Nov. 14 at The RitzCarlton Beach Resort. TIFs range of programs focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary training, mentoring and tutoring, and opportunities for broadening experiences, life skills development and economic independence.

Vernon Allen Builder Inc. is getting close to the punch list stage on construction of a one-of-a-kind playhouse that will be auctioned of at Night at the Museum, the inaugural gala to benefit the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples. The pint-sized house designed by The Sater Group is modeled after the colorful one outside at Cmon. The full-sized playhouse is a popular attraction for young museum visitors, and now one lucky family will be able to have one like it in their own backyard, says Karysia Demarast, managing director of the childrens museum at North Collier Regional Park. In addition to A. Vernon Allen Builder and The Sater Group, Sun Coast Contractors Supply, Sunshine Roofing, First Service, Woodson Electric Solutions and Paradise Foam have helped bring the playhouse replica to fruition for the auction.

Whether they are facing economic challenges, changes in zoning laws or other obstacles, several area rescue organizations, including Shy Wolf Sanctuary, are on a mission to secure land to house and protect their animals. Philanthropist Howard Petrie has created the Coalition of Sanctuaries as an umbrella organization with hopes of purchasing a parcel of land to be shared by member sanctuaries. They will live and work side-by-side and share common areas such as a repair shop and storage, veterinary exam room and an educational/visitors center. Each member sanctuary will continue to operate with complete independence, cooperating with the others in the spirit of doing whats best for the animals. The effort will result in no monetary gain, and no breeding will take place. The primary challenge is finding property where they are permitted to operate. CoS is open to all opportunities, although Southwest Florida offers the best potential In the meantime, Shy Wolf Sanctuary continues its fundraising efforts to support the more than 50 animals under its care. Coming up Saturday, March 22, is Cruise for a Cause aboard the Naples Princess. Tickets are $60. For reservations or more information, call Noelle Matthews at (615) 406-3674. For more information about Shy Wolf Sanctuary, visit Naples Equestrian Challenge honors volunteersNaples Equestrian Challenge recently honored several of its more than 350 volunteers.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA16 WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 You will love our great Social, Tennis and Golf Amenities! For additional information and a personal tour, please call: Laura Pelletier at Teach a man to fish ...The Drug Users Resource Center in Vancouver, British Columbia (heralded previously in News of the Weird for a vending machine dispensing 25-cent crack-cocaine pipes to discourage addicts from committing crimes to fund their habit), launched a program in August to supply alcoholics with beerbrewing and wine-making ingredients to discourage them from drinking rubbing alcohol, hand-sanitizer and mouthwash. The DURC co-op sells, for $10 monthly, brewing mix in a pre-hopped beer kit, but eventually, an official said, co-op members will brew from scratch, including boiling, mashing and milling. A civic leader told Canadas National Post that the program has already begun to reduce crime in areas frequented by alcoholics.Government in action Rape-prevention activists estimate that local governments have backlogs of untested evidentiary rape kits that total up to 400,000 nationally signifying free crimes for rapists, lost justice for victims, and ruined reputations for men wrongly arrested. (As TV police dramas emphasize, many rape victims are reluctant to submit to the indignity of swabbing and photographing so soon after being violated and comply only because detectives assure them of the rape kits importance.) Memphis, Tenn., has an inventory of 12,000, and the state of Texas at least 16,000 dating back to the 1980s. However, the cost of testing (about $500 each) is daunting for many city budgets, according to a February report by the Rape Kit Action Project in New York. After 37 years in prison, Jerry Hartfield goes to court in April for a retrial of his 1977 conviction (and death sentence) for murder in Bay City, Texas. Actually, the 1977 conviction was overturned, but before Mr. Hartfield could demand his release (he is described in court documents as illiterate with an IQ of 51), the then-governor commuted the sentence to life in prison in 1983. It was only in 2006 that a fellow inmate persuaded Mr. Hartfield that the commutation was illusory since there was, at that point, no sentence to commute. Mr. Hartfields lawyers call Texas treatment a blatant violation of his constitutional right to a speedy trial, but prosecutors suggest that it is Mr. Hartfields own fault that he has remained in prison the last 30 years. Congressional wisdom has prevented the federal governments Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) from using competitive bids to decide how much to pay for medical devices and among the most steeply overpriced products are vacuum erection systems (penis pumps) that invigorate seniors lives. CMS pays an average of $360, while the Department of Veterans Affairs, which also buys the pumps but by competitive bid, pays about $185. In a January report, the Health and Human Services inspector general estimated the government could save $18 million a year (and beneficiaries another $4.5 million) if CMS could use competitive bidding.Great art Frances Wadsworth-Jones jewelry design show (Heaven Sent) at the Museum of London runs until April, with centerpiece brooches that resemble bird droppings. Why, she was asked, would a woman want to wear jewelry suggesting that a pigeon soiled her lapel? The stain is very intimate, said the artist. Its something that you wouldnt want, and youre turning it into something beautiful. Ms. WadsworthJones pieces have sold for as much as the equivalent of $4,000. In December, the New York City parks department, responding to alarmed visitors at Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, built a wooden fence to shield the sculpture Bear Eats Man so that parents might examine the structure before children start asking them awkward questions. The sculpture by Ms. Thordis Adalsteinsdottir is of a bear clutching, and about to bite, a man who appears in shock and sports an erection that art aficionados have justified as possibly representing the mans involuntary reflexive shock, according to a New York Times report.Police report Three suspects fled with about 30 pieces of jewelry from a burglary at Timothys Fine Jewelry in Broomfield, Colo., in January, but not before creating a puzzling scene on the surveillance video. Crushing the glass cases with sledgehammers, they moved quickly around the store, all the while constantly telling each other, I love you, brother. Glenn Rundles, 32, was captured only days after robbing two women at knifepoint in East Post Oak, Texas, in January despite a wanted poster called by some the worst police sketch ever, a cartoon of a comically roundfaced man (displayed at http://huff. to/1cXWT3p). After Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Donna Jane Watts ticketed Miami Police Department officer Fausto Lopez in 2011 for speeding to an off-duty job at 120 mph, naturally some in law enforcement began harassing her as a rat, according to a February Associated Press report. One provocation stood out other officers accessing Ms. Watts driver record by claiming to be on official business. Ms. Watts identified those officers employers and recently filed a lawsuit under the federal Driver Privacy Protection Act, which provides penalties of up to $2,500 for each of the more than 200 unauthorized searches by 88 officers from 25 police agencies.Democracy in actionChristopher Schaeffer likely became the first public officeholder in the U.S. sworn in as an openly declared Pastafarian an adherent of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster when he took his seat on the Town Council of Pomfret, N.Y., in January.

Much of that population is clustered in Naples and Immokalee. The transplanted residents say its common for newcomers whove relocated for jobs or retirement to reside in the gated communities or apartment complexes that dot the county. They theorize that many of these new black residents socialize where they live, venturing no further because theyre unaware of that other civic and social organizations exist locally, aside from the NAACP. Mrs. Moore says that shortly after their move, she began talking to other black women she encountered about the idea of forming a club and found there was interest. That led to a get-together luncheon that was attended by about 15 other women. Out of that grew the Golden Links, which now has about 100 members. Mrs. Moore had been a Welcome Wagon member in several communities and says she borrowed that concept for Golden Links. I thought the idea was great, she explains. In moving around, I always found a group to do something with. When she moved here Im the type of person who will walk up to you and ask you where you go to church, she says she quickly gauged an interest among local black women in being part of something like Golden Links. Golden Links is largely comprised of retired professionals, many of them transplants to Collier County and southern Lee County, because people whove called the area home for a longer period of time generally have an established network of friends, explains Mrs. Moore. As for the Golden Links name, she says, Gold is ageless, and we come together for the friendship, the networking and to socialize. Its really a nice support group. Fun is the primary order of the day when Golden Links members gather for monthly luncheons at upscale restaurants. There are also book signings, receptions for new black business owners and the occasional evening outing, such as a wine tasting or a movie. The group also serves a philanthropic function, holding charity fundraiser luncheons in December. The most recent fundraiser, in conjunction with the B.R.O.M.E.Os, generated $3,000 for the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County. That same good-time spirit infuses B.R.O.M.E.O. get-togethers, says Harold Weeks, who co-founded the group with Mr. Moore, Carlos Ince, Al Hawkins, Richard Thornton and the late Paul Franklin. Guys get together and network, says Mr. Weeks, a retired firefighter who moved to Naples from Brockton, Mass., in 2004 and is the current president of the NAACP Collier County. When I first came here, you didnt think many black men lived here. So we started investigating it and whenever we met one, we invited him to breakfast. B.R.O.M.E.O. doesnt have formal membership, but Mr. Weeks says 50-55 men have signed up and its common for 15-40 of them to show up the first Monday of each month for breakfast at the traditional meeting spot, the Perkins Restaurant on Pine Ridge Road. Invitations are not necessary. Everybodys welcome, says Mr. Weeks. Therere always good-spirited conversations. Sometimes, somebody makes an appeal, and if the guys want to, they can contribute. We here to talk and thats what we do. It makes for good camaraderie. When Tameka Seaton moved to Naples from Los Angeles in 2003, she found her encounters with other blacks BLACKFrom page 1When I first came here, you didnt think many black men lived here.

Because were a lower percentage of the population (in Collier) than any other ethnic group, you dont see us as often, says Ms. Seaton, who is the public information officer for the city of Naples. When she first moved here, she says, her time was largely devoted to her then job in the banking industry, and functioning as a wife and mother to two small children. It wasnt until I got involved with nonprofits like the NAACP I was the publicity chair and in charge of organizing events that I got to meet other black professionals and I discovered a hidden talent for planning, organization and public relations, Ms. Seaton explains. That discovery led her to attend Hodges University, where she earned bachelors and masters degrees in business management before assuming her current post in 2012. Aside from the NAACP, Ms. Seaton also participates in the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerces Leadership Collier program, the Boys & Girls Club of Collier Countys Bright Futures Start Here Scholarship Committee, the Naples Womens Club and the Public Relations Society of Americas Gulf Coast Chapter. Ive always been the person who cant sit down, who always has to be doing something, she says. I enjoy being active and giving back. Its a really good feeling to make a difference in someones life. I dont have the wealth, but I do have my time and talents, and I use them for the greater good when I can. Barbara Melvin says that when she and her husband Daniel moved to Naples from Detroit in 2002, she made a point of getting involved with organizations concerned with minority issues. Mrs. Melvin serves as vice president for both the NAACP Collier County and the Haitian Coalition of Collier County. Shes also on the board of directors for the Naples-based Southwest Florida Diversity Council. Im on 12 boards, says Mrs. Melvin, who is vice president of business development officer for Wells Fargo Bank in Naples. As to where she finds the time, she says, I dont know. My husband says I must have a clone. In moving around, I always found a group to do something with.

Walking tour will guide visitors through history of ChokoloskeeThe little village of Chokoloskee is about as far south as you can go in Southwest Florida. Its shell mounds, old buildings and cemeteries make it a fascination destination for those who enjoy local history. The Everglades Society for Historic Preservation offers a guided walking tour of the towns historical highlights on Saturday, March 8. Visitors during the past four years enjoyed our tours of Everglades City homes and public buildings, so we thought they might like to explore the neighboring area this year for a change, explains Marya Repko, president of the society. One stop on the tour is the Smallwood Store & Museum, where Miccosukee and Seminole Indians traded animal pelts and hides, bird plumes, fish and produce for various supplies with owner Charles Ted Smallwood before the Tamiami Trail opened in 1928. Mr. Smallwood established the trading post and post office back in 1906. The current trading post was built in 1917 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Before he died in 1951, Mr. Smallwood donated the -acre Smallwood Cemetery, another stop on the walking tour, to the community. Buried there is a veritable whos who of hardy pioneer men and women who carved out their lives in this remote region bordering the Ten Thousand Islands. Another stop on the tour is JTs, a longtime community gathering spot that has served in various capacities since the early 1920s, from post office and grocery store to its present incarnation as a restaurant, gallery and home to Capt. Charles Wrights guided ecotours of the Everglades. The walking tour begins at the miniscule Chokoloskee Church of God, which celebrated its centennial anniversary in April 2013. Beginning at 10 a.m., visitors can sign in and pick up a map and souvenir ticket booklet filled with historical information. Cost is $20 per person. Tickets will also be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McLeod Park in Everglades City, where the annual Art-in-the-Glades festival will be underway throughout the day. Walking tour reservations can also be made at www. To get to Chokoloskee Island, take Exit 80 from I-75 and travel south on State Road 29 for 24 miles to Everglades City. Go around the traffic circle and keep going south for about four more miles. Cross the Chokoloskee causeway and turn right into the church parking lot just past the post office. For more information, call Ms. Repko at 695-2905. MAUREEN SULLIVAN-HARTUNG / COURTESY PHOTOThe Smallwood Store & Museum

FREE WITH A FREE WITH A What is that shrill noise coming from the tops of my oak trees? It sounds like a bunch of dog whistles up there. If its March in Naples and you are hearing a lot of really high-pitched squeaks from the tops of your trees, then you might just be getting a visit from one of my favorite birds, the cedar waxwing. Cedar waxwings are relative latecomers for snowbirds, typically arriving several months later than our wandering warblers and buntings, but they stick around for a while even after most of our smaller migrants have gone back north. I dont recall ever seeing a solitary cedar waxwing. Extremely gregarious, they feed, roost and fly in groups all the while making those distinct, highpitch calls. It was the sound of the birds that alerted me to their presence while arriving at work the other day. But hearing them and seeing them can be entirely different things. When perched in pine trees, these crested, fawn-colored birds are nearly invisible, especially if they are sitting near pinecones. This explains why I am so often spotted with my head craned skyward this time of year; Im simply trying to find the source of one of my favorite sounds. One recent morning a small flock of cedar waxwings was perched in beautiful morning light at the top of a live oak in our courtyard at the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center. With the clear blue sky behind them, they stood out on the nearly bare branches of the oak. The morning light on their feathers really made the birds glow. I ran inside to grab a camera with a long lens and was able to get a few pictures before they decided that they needed to be somewhere else. Luckily for me, the other place they wanted to be was the strangler fig tree behind our administrative building. The waxwings were gobbling down fig fruit from the tree (still making their high pitched calls apparently even while eating) and flying back and forth to the oaks. I continued photographing them for a bit and was able catch a moment when one of the waxwings flew down from the fig tree and showed the red-tipped secondary feathers that give the birds their name. They are called waxwing because these red tips, visible in flight or while preening, look like they have been dipped in bright red candle wax. Several days later, the waxwings were still feasting in small flocks on our figs and other berries, mocking me with their calls every time I walked by a flock without a camera or binoculars. I cant seem to watch these energetic, beautiful birds enough. Once you hear and see them, youll know why I feel this way. Then well both be walking around with our necks craned skyward. Lets try not to bump into each other. Dave Graff is an education specialist on staff at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.

REAL BIG REAL BIG R E R E A L B G B I G A master-planned artificial reef project consisting of 36 reefs is underway off the coast of Collier County. Coordinators say it could be a game changer for the local economy as well as the local ecology. Coordinated by the Economic Recovery Task Force and led by longtime angler and local attorney Peter Flood, the project will be funded by private donations and a private BP grant totaling $1.3 million awarded to the city of Naples, the city of Marco Island and Collier County. With the execution of a memorandum of understanding between the Community Foundation of Collier County and the City of Marco Island and Collier County Government, the community foundation has begun to accept private donations for this project. The Naples City Council is set to review the memorandum of understanding at its meeting on Wednesday, March 19. Longtime Collier County residents Elhanon and Sandy Combs are the first in the community to purchase an artificial reef module for a tax-deductible contribution of $2,500. Marine Team International, Pure Naples and Scoular Images have joined the effort and produced a teaser video for a documentary that will chronicle the development of the reef project. When we heard about this project we jumped at the chance to participate, says Lance Julian, president of the Naples-based Marine Team International. It is an unprecedented effort that will improve our ecosystem and boost the local economy. The artificial reefs have been designed in consultation with Heywood Matthews, an oceanographer who has been building artificial reefs for more than 40 years. Florida Power and Light is among the corporate sponsors that have pledged their support, donating 3,000 tons of the 18,000 tons of material that will be needed for the reefs. It is exciting to see this project move forward with such enthusiasm and backing from so many in our community, Nancy Richie, environmental specialist for the City of Marco Island, says. The collection of materials is ongoing, permit applications have been submitted, and bids on the project have been received, she adds. Construction is anticipated to commence in mid to late 2014, pending approval from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. There are several ways to be part of the project financially: For a minimum contribution of $100,000, you can have a reef bearing your business or family name on nautical charts. This opportunity is limited to six donors (four at present, until the City of Naples signs the memorandum of understanding with the Community Foundation of Collier County). A donation of $2,500 will fund the construction of a reef module with limestone rock to create a feeding and shelter habitat for fish and marine life. Friends of the Reef contributions of lesser amounts are also welcome. For more information, call the community foundation at 649-5000 or visit www.

Tamiami Trail, Unit 90, Bonita Springs Bonita Bay Golf Course South Tamiami TrailOld 41 Clarkston Dr.Cedar Creek Dr. Pebblecreek Bernwood Pkwy. Bernwood Dr. N. Bay Dr. Looking for a New Dermatologist? Part Two: A case study in an OB/GYN worst nightmareLast week, I began the story of the heroic efforts of NCHs Birth Place team to save the lives of an expectant mother who went into sudden cardiac arrest and her baby. This week, the rest of the story: After stabilizing the newborn, the attention of Drs. Wally McLean and Tom Cook and their team turned to the immediate diagnosis needed to save the life of the mother. Immediately, the doctors and Wendy Sparks, CRNA, compressed the chest and ventilated the patient. Blood flow was restored, and heart and lungs were again working. Next, Drs. Ismael Martin and Bruce Roy, both critical care physicians, were consulted. Dr. Martin did a bedside ultrasound, ordered a brain CT, consulted with colleagues and made the diagnosis. Everyone acted quickly with the ICU team to cool the mothers temperature to 93 degrees, minimizing damage caused by lack of oxygen. The patient had suffered placenta abruption, a serious complication of pregnancy, combined with another uncommon pre-existing condition: a hole in her heart. While such an affliction normally can be dealt with so that it doesnt cause any problems, in this case there was an extraordinarily technical complication: an air embolus, caused by the placenta detaching prematurely, released air into the venous system which then traversed the hole in the heart, making its way to the coronary arteries and then to the brain. One significant problem remained: air in the circulation system to the brain (similar to the condition deep sea divers develop if they stay under water too long and surface too quickly). Social worker Cathy Watt and Dr. Roy spent the next eight hours locating a hyperbaric chamber to remove the air from the brain. At midnight, Florida Hospital in Orlando graciously accepted the patient, but weather necessitated ground transportation. Crystal Correll from Ambitrans drove through the fog with lights and sirens. Shortly thereafter, the mom was successfully dived, air was dissolved from her brain and she was returned to our ICU at the North Naples campus. Today, both mother and baby are at home. While the mothers condition might require further attention, the baby is just fine. Both survived due to the remarkable efforts of an immensely talented and compassionate team. As the only obstetrical service in Collier County, NCH this year will deliver 3,300 babies. We care for 83 percent of all newborns in Collier County; 81 percent of those who need a higher level of care stay close to home in our Neonatal ICU. We will also care for 74 percent of all the pediatric patients from Collier County needing hospitalization. Observers often debate whether high volume, local, centralized critical services really make a difference. The miraculous story of this mother and her baby ought to answer that question definitively. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. HEALTHY LIVING Sweet! Essence of strawberry could be the key to healthier processed foods BY THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAUniversity of Florida scientists believe they have pinpointed the exact compounds in strawberries that give the fruit its delightfully unique flavor findings that will allow UF breeders to create more flavorful varieties even faster. Whats more, the researchers believe that eventually, those naturally occurring compounds will be used to make processed foods taste sweeter, using far less sugar and no artificial sweeteners. And, researchers say, if fruits and vegetables taste better, people will be more likely to eat them. After looking at 35 strawberry varieties over two growing seasons, conducting extensive biochemical testing and hosting consumer taste panels, they identified 30 compounds directly tied to strawberry flavors that consumers adore. And they also identified six volatile compounds that add to humans perception of sweetness in the fruit independent of any type of sugar contained in the fruit. Those six volatiles add to the growing portfolio of sugar-independent, flavor-enhancing compounds found in fruits, vegetables and herbs that UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences researchers are zeroing in on. The researchers are part of the Plant Innovation Program, a group of about 45 UF/IFAS scientists conducting research in plant science and human sensory analysis, with a goal of helping people live and eat more healthfully. The teams recent work was outlined in a paper published Feb. 11 online by PLoS One. Thomas Colquhoun, an assistant professor in environmental horticulture, said the group has a full pipeline of research projects and expects similar findings in the next few years for important Florida crops such as blueberries, peaches and various herbs. You can envision that every time were looking at a crop, were getting a new, exciting chance to be able to add one little piece to that flavor puzzle, Mr. Colquhoun says. So were just running right down the list of Floridaimportant crops, and were picking up different aspects of the flavor sensation itself, in each one. Michael Schwieterman, a postdoctoral researcher and the papers lead author, said the six sugar-independent volatiles are some of the groups top targets of interest. While the ability to corral those volatiles and use them to make more flavorful, less-sugar-enhanced foods is in the future, he says, the groups traditional plant breeders are using the findings to create consumer-preferred flavors now. The latest study also looked at seasonality changes in the berries chemical makeup depending on where it is in the growing season so UF/ IFAS plant breeders can now use the information to select plants that keep premium flavor throughout the season, Mr. Schwieterman adds. So when we find these specific volatiles, it will help us produce cultivars that we know have a good chemical profile and should be perceived as much sweeter, with better flavor. The research was supported by a U.S. Department of Agriculture specialty crop block grant.

MARCH MADNESS15% OFFANY TUNE UP QUALITY SERVICE YOU CAN TRUSTEXPIRES 03/31/14 PET TALESVet newsNew products, information help vets and pets BY DR. MARTY BECKER Universal UclickI love going to veterinary conferences. Learning about advances in veterinary medicine and checking out new products and pharmaceuticals is an essential part of keeping up-to-date in my field. At the 2014 Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas last month, I attended some great educational sessions and discovered some new veterinary and consumer products that I will follow with interest. They have a lot of potential for not only helping our pets, but also helping us to learn more about them. Heres a sampling of products and information that I ran across: Apoquel: Who hasnt lived with at least one itchy dog? Sometimes their condition is so bad it makes you want to start scratching yourself. With this new drug, some dogs may find rapid relief, maybe even within a few hours. Its not a steroid, so it doesnt have the side effects that are associated with those types of drugs. The drug works by targeting cytokines (proteins) associated with itching and inflammation. Its suitable for dogs with flea allergies, food allergies or contact allergies. Voyce: Do you have a Fitbit or Nike Fuel band? Now, in addition to tracking your own heart rate, respiratory rate and activity levels, you can collect that data for your dog, too, with the Voyce, a collar that monitors vital signs, calories burned and more. For a monthly fee, you and your veterinarian can access the information, set goals for your dog, and note changes that may be early indicators of problems. You can also receive articles, videos and other information specific to your dog. The collar is waterproof to one meter. Whistle: This activity monitor attaches to your dogs collar and keeps track of how much time is spent on walks, play and rest. You can set daily goals and get weekly updates. The information is easy to access with a free app on your iOS or Android phone. You can share the information with your veterinarian and compare your dogs activity level with dogs of the same breed, age or weight. The device is waterproof and has a 10-day rechargeable battery. Canine intelligence: Psychologist and dog smarts expert Dr. Stanley Coren of the University of British Columbia spoke on how we can measure the intelligence of dogs. He had a lot of fascinating things to say, but the takeaway is that when it comes to language, recognizing objects and the ability to form concepts, most dogs have the mental ability of a 2or 3-year-old child. If we are teaching a skill or presenting a problem to be solved to a dog, its important to consider whether a toddler could learn the same thing. If not, we may need to rethink whether its something the dog could do. Older pets: Veterinary anesthesiology specialist Dr. Courtney Baetge of Texas A&M University addressed the special needs of geriatric animals. You might think that sedation is safer for a senior pet, but Dr. Baetge says general anesthesia is a better choice because it protects the airway, provides complete oxygen delivery and allows for ventilator support if needed. What qualifies as older? We typically describe animals as geriatric when they reach 75 percent to 80 percent of the average life span for their breed or species, but we cant always say for sure in the case of mixed breeds or animals with unknown histories. Thats just a fraction of the information that I and maybe your own veterinarian gathered at the conference. Its our goal to keep up with the latest news and science so we can give your pet the best care possible. Allergies are a common and uncomfortable problem for dogs. A new medication may help ease the itch. Pets of the Week>> Gumby is a handsome 8-month-old gray and white domestic short hair who gets along with everyone.

Yes, I know Nickelodeons Kids Choice Awards are right around the corner, but I just cant get very geared up about an awards ceremony for which Taylor Swift is nominated in so many categories. So, Ill just have to treasure my happy memories of last Sundays Academy Awards, for which I was red carpet ready in a lovely muumuu from Marshalls and a plastic clip from CVS holding back my tresses. The evening began early with coverage on E. I tuned in even though I cant stand the mani-cam (the weird box with the camera that Ryan Seacrest makes the female stars put their hands inside to show off their manicures). Furthermore, I dont think the celebrities like Ryan anymore than they like mani-cam. I got out my iPad, poured a glass of wine and logged on to Facebook, where my friends Amy in Massachusetts, Alexis in Tampa and I proceeded to judge every outfit, hairdo and makeup job that strolled down that venerable crimson runner. Weve been doing this for nearly every awards show since 2008. This years thread capped off at 329 comments from just us girls. We all approved of the blue streak in Liza Minnellis hair because if a nearly 70-year-old diva is going to have a blue streak in her hair that matches her lounge pajamas, well, it should be the legendary Liza. Amy thought Anna Kendricks black and red dress with the see-through midriff looked like it came from Contempo (ouch). Meanwhile, we all admired the deep green color of Idina Menzels Vera Wang gown, but we werent thrilled that the cut of it was so Davids Bridal. We expected greatness from the new It Girl of fashion, Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyongo, as shes been conquering every red carpet in her path these days; however, we deemed the bodice on her pale blue Prada gown cut far too low (a necklace might have remedied things), and while I wasnt mad at it, Alexis and Amy hated Lupitas gold headband I mean, hated it.Meanwhile, we wanted to love Cate Blanchetts Armani dress (because we love Cate Blanchett), but we all agreed that it looked a little like a childs art project with all the beads and dangly things hot-glued to it. We enjoyed Jennifer Lawrence in red Dior, and when she tripped and fell after exiting her limo, we decided that made her even more endearing and we really, really want to go have a martini or three with her someday. Every year, we three tend to crown Charlize Theron Queen of the Red Carpet, and this year it happened again, when she showed up in a show-stopping black Dior. After the red carpet, the show itself was fine. Host Ellen DeGeneres was her usual genial self, the winners were fairly predictable (as in, I predicted every one of the major awards), some of the speeches were particularly memorable (Im looking at you, Jared Leto so sweet as he praised his mother), and the In Memoriam montage made me tear up, as it does every year, mainly because Id forgotten about some of departed actually departing. But most of all, Oscars night is about the red carpet all the glamour, all the sparkle and all the snark. Actually, I probably could muster up some snark for the Nickelodeon awards especially with Taylor Swift on the red carpet, bless her heart.St. Paddys Day ParadeI love a parade of fashion down a red carpet, but I really love a festive St. Patricks Day Parade through downtown Naples even more. At least 40,000 revelers are expected for the spectacle on Saturday, March 15. But be warned: The Naples Police Department will be strictly monitoring alcohol consumption. That means no open containers of beer green or otherwise or any spirited beverage, not even in a Styrofoam cup with a lid and a straw. So, all you leprechauns, please be careful; otherwise, you could find yourself dancing a jig all the way to the pokey. Police tried an open container law in downtown Fort Myers a while back, making it illegal to walk around with an alcoholic drink in hand at all, even during events for which the streets were closed off. Alas, it was a failure. Folks who wanted to drink and isnt that pretty much the only thing folks want to do on St. Patricks Day? Lets be real stayed in the confines of their favorite watering hole instead of patronizing shops and mixing and mingling, which is supposed to be what festivals and parades are all about. Anyway, our neighbors to the north in Fort Myers saw the error in their ways and went back to allowing open containers. As far as the Naples parade is concerned, Im certain that St. Patrick will be bummed. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week d h w A r r ( stephanieDAVIS COURTESY PHOTONot even stilt-walkers will be allowed to imbibe at the Naples St. Patricks Day Parade.

Federal government (and tax bills) keep on growingA common complaint is that the size and scope of federal government agencies and departments are far too large both bloated, on paths of unrestrained growth, and too large to be properly managed. Is this true? According to the Cato Institute, the size of the U.S. federal budget has grown from $1.9 trillion in 2001 to $3.7 trillion in 2013. The biggest increase during that time was from 2008 to 2009; the spending increase was largely in response to the economic contraction associated with the great recession. Unfortunately, the increase in spending to spur the economy has turned out to be ongoing spending and not a one time splurge to jump start the economy. As for government sectors receiving funds, the largest amount of federal money spent is: to Social Security (22 percent); Defense (18 percent); Medicare (14 percent); Medicaid (7 percent); and interest (6 percent.) The balance of all other spending is 33 percent but none of the all other sub-components individually exceed 6 percent. What scares many taxpaying citizens is the runaway growth in entitlement spending. As the second chart shows, there has been rapid growth in entitlement spending compared to down trending in defense and nondefense discretionary spending. (And there is more defense downsizing on the horizon.) There is value to a growing GDP far beyond the employment opportunities it brings to our citizenry. A GDP growing faster than the growth in the U.S. budget allows a growing tax base to pay for larger government. Per projections by the Cato Institute, the 2000 budget was 18 percent of GDP; the 2010 budget was 24 percent. But brace yourselves for 2030 and 2040. They come in at 32 percent and 37 percent, respectively. What kind of tax rate will that imply for our next generation? Here is a closer financial snapshot of several (but not all) federal agencies according to The Department of Agriculture will spend $156 billion in 2013, or $1,300 per household; operates about 240 subsidy programs; and employs 93,000 workers in about 7,000 offices across the country. The Department of Defense will spend about $633 billion in fiscal 2013, or $5,200 per household; employs 1.5 million uniformed employees and about 780,000 civilian employees. The Department of Education will spend about $48 billion in 2013, or $400 per household; employs 4,300 workers; and operates 153 different subsidy programs. The Department of Health and Human Services will spend $908 billion in 2013 (Medicare totals $504 billion and Medicaid totals $266 billion), or $7,500 per household; employs 70,000 workers. The Department of Social Security Administration will spend $873 billion in 2013, or $7,300 per household in the nation. Some of the federal budget expenses have increased due to a growing number of federal staff and hefty compensation and benefits packages. According to Cato, the average U.S. federal government employee makes $14,632 more in direct cash income than his or her private sector counterparts (i.e., at $74,436 in federal government versus $59,804 in the private sector. The extremely generous benefits given to federal employees boosts their real income by $26,632, putting total average federal employee compensation at $114,436 versus the private sectors average at $87,804.) Unless the federal governments size is limited financially, the next generations will face huge tax burdens and loss of their benefits under a variety of social programs. Another argument against the federal governments growth is that it crowds out capitalism and squelches private enterprises function and spirit. By the way, who is capable of managing annual expenditures of some $15 trillion annually? For those not paying taxes, the scope and size of federal government is not worrisome. For those paying escalating tax bills, it is a constant concern. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Not So NeutralAs the stock market rises and falls, many investors might wish for less volatile investments. Meet market-neutral investments, designed to deliver returns not too tied to those of the overall stock market. For most traditional stock funds, if the overall market goes up, your fund will, too; a down market will typically pull your fund share price down as well. Thats because typical stock mutual funds buy stocks only. Typical market-neutral investments will usually have both long and short positions in different stocks. (A long position is when you buy a stock expecting it to rise in value. A short position is where you profit if the investment heads south.) Market-neutral fund managers aim to make more from their long positions than they lose in their short positions when the overall market rises, and to make bigger profits from their shorts than losses from longs when the market drops. The concept sounds great, but do such strategies actually work? Well, in many cases, they havent performed as well as expected. Think back to 2008, when the S&P 500 lost close to 40 percent. Several market-neutral funds lost substantial amounts of money during 2008s bear market and also missed out on the rebound in 2009. Some posted smaller losses than the overall market, but they were supposed to gain in both good markets and bad. A low-cost S&P 500 index fund gained 97 percent between 2003 and the end of 2012, while the average equity market-neutral hedge fund lost 4.7 percent, according to Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Indices. The challenges that actively managed market-neutral funds face are formidable. Not only do their managers have to identify which sectors they believe will gain or lose, they also have to pick the right stocks. Thats a lot to ask. Passively managed market-neutral funds dont seem like sure things, either.Market-neutral funds are another kind of investment promising the best of both worlds: solid returns without the risk that most stock investments have. We shouldnt count on seeing those promises come true. Up and Down With GoogleMy dumbest investment was riding shares of Google up and then down. The value of my investment went from about $5,000 to $50,000 and then back down to $5,000. Dumb! D.P., Scottsdale, Ariz.The Fool Responds: We hope youve hung on to those shares since you wrote us last year, as Google shares have gained about 45 percent since then. Long-term investors in stocks will find it hard to avoid getting stung by some sharp drops but if theyre invested in healthy, growing companies, theyll enjoy long-term gains as well. When a stock you own is falling in value, you need to ask yourself whether its because of a long-term reason or a short-term one. If you believe the stock is undervalued and that the company has competitive advantages and solid growth prospects, its often best to hang on. If youre no longer confident in the company, or if youre simply not sure what you think, selling can make sense. Google has a lot going for it, from its dominant search engine to its Android platform to its YouTube business, among many other things. Driving a BargainGeneral Motors (NYSE: GM) has seen its stock fall more than 10 percent in 2014, in part due to a disappointing fourth quarter earnings report. The stock may be a more compelling portfolio candidate than many think, though. Two of the biggest challenges that contributed to GMs bankruptcy continue to linger: It still has underfunded global pension liabilities of nearly $20 billion, and it has lost nearly $20 billion in Europe over the past 15 years. Despite that, General Motors simply isnt the same company that failed so catastrophically during the recession. With forwardthinking new management, it has reduced its bloated cost structure and refocused on making cars people really want to buy. The new Chevy Impala was named Consumer Reports best sedan, and the Corvette Stingray and Chevy Silverado were named the North American car and truck of the year, respectively, at the Detroit 2014 auto show. Sales expectations are high for 2014, and GM has been confident enough to initiate a dividend, recently yielding 3.4 percent. General Motors offers a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 7, a more profitable product line than it has seen in years and a North American market that is still harboring significant pent-up demand. Consider buying in before the market values this reinvigorated business for what its worth. (The Motley Fools Inside Value newsletter has recommended General Motors.) I was founded by a Swedish immigrant in Minnesota in 1914 to transport miners. Today, based in Dallas, Im North Americas largest intercity bus company, with more than 13,000 daily departures for more than 3,800 destinations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. My fleet recently included about 1,735 buses, each of which takes 19 cars, on average, off the road, helping the environment. Each averages 200 passenger miles per gallon of fuel, too. I also offer package delivery services, and Im owned by Britain-based FirstGroup, the leading transportation company in the U.K. and North America. Who am I? (Answer: Greyhound) Expectations MatterQApple posted record sales of devices in its last quarter, yet its stock fell. Why? S.S., Longmont, Colo.AIt all comes down to expectations. Apple reported record sales of $57.6 billion in its first quarter of 2014, and a record number of iPhones and iPads 51 million and 26 million, respectively. Thats terrific, but while earnings were a bit above analyst expectations, revenue was below. And investors had been expecting to see several million more iPhones sold, too. Falling short of expectations can send a stock tumbling, at least in the short run. Future expectations matter, too. Apples pro it margins have been shrinking in recent years, causing some to worry. Still, theres a lot to like about the company, such as its huge pile of cash and equivalents of more than $150 billion, its dividend of 2.3 percent, its strong market share in mobile devices and its ability to innovate and create new product categories. The stock seems cheap these days, but opinions are divided on its future, even at Fool HQ. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Apple and its newsletters have recommended it.) ***QDo I have to pay taxes on dividends received in my Roth IRA? E.M., PhoenixANope. Whatever you invest in a Roth IRA grows free of taxes on capital gains and dividends. Your ultimate withdrawals will not be taxed, either if you follow the rules. Traditional IRAs offer different benefits. The qualified contributions you make to them reduce your taxable income, thereby giving you a tax break up front. But upon withdrawal, gains and dividends are taxed at your ordinary income tax rate. Learn more at Got a question for the Fool?

SB234 Discrimination in Employment Screening, filed in October by Sen. Jeff Clemens, a Democrat from the Palm Beach County area, would prohibit employers from inquiring into a jobseekers criminal record on an initial employment application, unless required by law. The bills aim is to decrease unemployment in communities with high concentrations of people with criminal histories and potentially reduce recidivism through gainful employment. SB 324 Employment Practices, a general bill introduced by Commerce and Tourism and Republican Sen. Nancy Detert, whose predominately Sarasota County district includes a slice of Charlotte, would prohibit employers from using a job applicants credit history to deny employment or determine compensation, terms and conditions of employment. The Florida bills are designed to stop companies from screening job candidates based on application information in essence helping otherwise qualified individuals who met minimum requirements get past the first step. The laws would not prevent criminal background or credit checks further along in the hiring process nor apply to banks, financial advisors and other businesses that handle personal information, credit cards and potentially sensitive information. Christina Harris Schwinn, a Fort Myers employment lawyer and partner in Pavese Law Firm, says both bills have good intentions but are likely to be met with vehement opposition from organizations representing Floridas businesses. Ms. Schwinn advocates criminal background checks in many employment scenarios, especially those involving children and the elderly, and in other situations after a candidate has met minimal employment qualifications. I have no issue with this bill, she says. I think its a good thing. We should be evaluating people based on factors that are relevant. I always ask my clients why theyre running background checks, what risk theyre trying to address in the workplace. The Florida Legislature will consider the bills during its regular session which began Tuesday. Neither bills rank among the most viewed or monitored no surprise to Ms. Schwinn who will discuss both during the March 12 meeting of the Human Resource Management Association of Southwest Florida. She predicts opposition to both bills from the Associated Industries of Florida and other lobbying powerhouses. Neither the state chamber nor HR Florida State Council, a 14,000-member affiliated with the Society for Human Resource Management, have taken an official stance. At the Florida Chamber, we remain focused on the big picture helping make Floridas business climate more competitive and lowering the cost of living for Floridas families and small businesses, Edie Ousley, vice president of public affairs, responded via email. There will likely be more than 2,000 bills filed this legislative session, but only about 10 percent will likely pass. The Florida Chamber is closely following hundreds of bills that directly link to Floridas ability to create more competitive opportunities for families and small businesses. Orlando attorney Don Works, the legislative chairman for HR Florida, says the organization was waiting until the second week of March, the Legislatures first full week, to take any formal position on pending legislation. SB 234 follows a national movement and 2012 recommendations from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to eliminate questions on applications asking about criminal history. Proponents contend the question emphasizes a candidates past mistakes not qualifications. In 2011, the National Employment Law Project reported 65 million Americans one out of every four adults had criminal records that could show up during a routine background check. Jacksonville and Tampa are the only two Florida municipalities and among 56 cities and counties nationwide that have removed criminal history checkboxes from applications, according to NELPs January 2014 Ban the Box report. Local CareerSource centers dont track the number of their unemployed clients with criminal histories, but officials say they work with a surprisingly large number with backgrounds. We have a larger percent of clients you would never think had a criminal history, says Debbie Guilbault, center supervisor for the CareerSource office in Port Charlotte. It surprises me how fairly often we encounter this; the numbers are much higher than youd think. Some have had one problem and taken care of it. Other people have really long records and theyre hard to place. Offenses run the gamut from minor to murder. Beth Barger, supervisor for CareerSources Naples offices, sees both the pros and cons of the proposed legislation. The intent is for people to be seen for who they are now, that the system rehabilitates and people deserve a second chance, she said. But you also have to ask yourself, if it was your company, what would you do? Employers are our customers as well and they want to hire the best possible candidates. Background checks may make hiring a bit harder but that hasnt stopped employers from hiring people in certain industries. Finding jobs for folks with histories does take longer. Convictions and arrests are everlasting and easily unearthed by searching county criminal court records. I view this as removing an artificial barrier, says Ms. Schwinn. Juvenile records are not sealed, not in this era. There is so much information already out there. Arrest records are inherently unreliable. You can visit the Lee County website and find cases that have been resolved after 10 years. Ms. Barger says many employers have removed the arrest question from applications. Thats how business used to be conducted and thankfully theyve refined that. Theres also that old Constitutional right of innocent until proven guilty. I have good employers who are willing to work around these issues, says Ms. Guilbault. Ill pick up the phone and tell them I have a good candidate that meets their qualification but there is a blemish on their record. We see so many people coming through that just cant get an interview because of the question on the application. Criminal background checks have an adverse effect on minorities. Should current incarceration rates remain unchanged, Ms. Schwinn points to EEOC data showing one out of every 17 white men will be imprisoned during their lifetime, one in six Hispanic men and one in three African-American men. This legislation is saying an employer cant use criminal background and credit history as a legitimate reason to say youre out, she says. Companies do it all the time and thats why this legislation is being introduced.Old crimes coming back to haunt I always tell someone with a history of theft its not wise to apply for a retail job. They apply, dont get the job and wonder why, says Ms. Barger. I had someone applying for teaching positions and she has shoplifted at 18. Records are records and they dont go away even if the crime was committed during what I call the young, dumb and stupid years. She did eventually get licensed. The criminal conviction question is a Catch-22 one businesses use as a litmus test of honesty and often if answered truthfully automatically disqualifies a candidate. Ms. Guilbault advises applicants to respond truthfully and provide an abbreviated account. The more you talk about it, the worse it sounds, says Ms. Barger, a former probation and parole officer. Its better if you dont focus on the crime because the more you try to explain it or say it wasnt your fault, it sounds like youve never accepted responsibility. I tell candidates to focus on the positive: what they did to get their life back on track; if they did time what they learned. As liaisons representing employers and the unemployed CareerSource centers have to tread carefully. At some point an employer has a right to know if the cashier they want to hire has stolen before, says Ms. Guilbault. Employers still have to think of liability. Ms. Schwinn agrees: If someones had a traffic ticket, big deal, she says. But if theyve had 15 in five years and want to drive a truck for you, you dont want to hire that person. Checking credit history has become pretty pervasive in the employment picture, Ms. Guilbault notes. If an employee is handling money, it makes sense to check their credit but theres no way credit history affects the average position. After the economy weve had the past five years or so, people have lost their homes and have bad credit. Yes, theyre at fault but theyre also victims of a downturn in the economy. Ms. Schwinn advises her home healthcare clients to delve deep into potential employees records. Certified nursing assistants and other contracted employees often work with elderly patients in their homes and have access to credit cards, jewelry, medication and even money. They can also unduly influence that person. The Florida Chambers Ms. Ousley says the proposed legislation could have a negative impact on the states jobs outlook. Limiting an employers ability to recruit and hire employees, especially in financially sensitive positions or jobs that have very stringent federal oversight, could potentially diminish Floridas ability to put more Floridians to work, she noted. We will continue to follow these bills throughout the legislative process. For candidates with shoddy credit or a criminal conviction, Ms. Bargers office provides federal bonding as a means to overcome stumbling blocks. Women, she says, fared worse during the recession. Women go through divorce or a relationship breakup and their finances are burned. Victims of identity theft could also lose potential jobs, noted Ms. Schwinn.

The most striking change was the conversion of the golf shop into a 4,700-square-foot, open-air bar and casual grill. The 55th Hole (Bonita Bay Club has five 18-hole courses) has glass walls that slide away and glass railings on the surrounding wraparound terrace to allow unobstructed views of the green practice range and Bonita Bays mature trees and colorful landscape. Stairs lead to an outdoor seating area with a 14-foot log fire pit. The 55th Hole lounge also has a media wall with 18 LED panels that can work as one screen or four. Eight 60-inch television screens are suspended above the center bar. The golf shop was relocated to the new 30,000-square-foot Golf Super Center, where rocking chairs overlook the driving range from the new buildings terrace. There is underground storage for 240 carts and 2,900 golf bags are organized inside. The shop has expanded inventory, a coffee bar and two televisions. The clubhouse renovation involved numerous changes to make the space more functional and visually appealing, including an open-hearth pizza oven and custom-made banquettes that can be moved easily to make room for a dance floor. Behind the scenes, the kitchen was totally reconfigured, with better storage and an improved loading dock to increase efficiency and maximize space. The clubhouses octagonal, glass-walled ballroom, one of the largest spaces in the clubhouse, has a more elegant look that is more inviting to members. Improvements extended beyond the clubhouse. The first of a three-phase golf course irrigation renovation provides the most efficient use of water and electricity with the most sophisticated technology in the industry. The asphalt cart paths on the Arthur Hills-designed Marsh golf course were replaced and upgraded with a combination of concrete and crushed coquina shells. D. Garrett Construction of Naples was the contractor for the project, which is part of a multiyear capital improvements initiative. Members took ownership of Bonita Bay Club in the spring of 2010. Under the leadership of Dan Miles as general manager and COO, an expansive program to restore the clubs legendary amenities and service was launched.

C31-37 A church might seem like an unlikely setting for a production based on Frankenstein. But the oft-portrayed celluloid monster is a far cry from the exploration of love and the human experience that are at the heart of Frankenstein: A New Musical, which is being staged this weekend at Marco Lutheran Church. The tuneful adaptation of Mary Shelleys classic novel adheres more closely to her examination of the tragic story of young scientist Victor Frankenstein and his quest to discover the secret of life. Frankensteins creation is more human than the Hollywood version and develops into a cunning, articulate being that ultimately plots the demise of the man who gave him life. This show is about overstepping your bounds, understanding the consequences for it and receiving salvation and redemption for your actions, explains Craig Greusel, music director at the island church. Mr. Greusel also portrays Victor Frankenstein, whose creation he describes as a body in search of a soul. The production marks the 25th year for the churchs Community Theatre Project, which in the past has tackled Godspell, Man of LaMancha, Barnum and Fiddler on the Roof, among other plays. Musicals are performed every three or four years and the project focuses on plays that have a common trait, says Mr. Greusel.

I never approach men I like, I dont flirt with strangers until theyre already flirting with me, I cant even smile at a cute man across the room. I keep my own desires on a very tight leash. But Ive decided Im tired of playing coy. Men dont hide their intentions. Why should we? On a recent Saturday night, out of town for a conference, I wound up having dinner with a man Id met that day. He was my age, handsome, funny, and uber-masculine in the way I like. Dinner started out as a meal between colleagues, but after a glass of wine and some intimate table talk, it suddenly felt like a date. Its like youre the angel to my devil, my sort-of date said when I declined a second glass of wine. I laughed. Im no angel. He sat back and looked at me. Then you must have filed down your horns. It was the point in a date when I typically dial it back, when all my natural shyness rears up and I blush and stammer my way to a night alone. But I had already decided to shrug off my natural reserve, and so instead I tried amping up the innuendos and not-sosubtle flirting when my date suggested another round of drinks. I feel like Im corrupting you, he said. Normally, I would have demurred, giggled and rolled my eyes. I would have pretended that I was, in fact, incorruptible. But instead, I looked him full in the face with my best take-me-back-toyour-room expression and said, Who says Im not already corrupted? And that ended the evening. All the heat that was building between us suddenly cooled. My date paid the check, gave me a quick hug and dashed off to his room. Clearly, the harder I had tried the less interested he had become. But why? Not long after, I stumbled on a passage from Women Men Love, W omen Men Leave, a dating advice book first published in the late s that reads like a playbook for every relationship mistake Ive ever made. Traditionally, it was the womans role to put the brakes on sexually, to modulate the speed and intensity of the sexual involvement, the book says. Since men could count on women to operate as a sort of governor, they could ignore their own misgivings and act aggressive, decisive and supremely confident. Womens growing ease with sexuality has changed all that. And how. The authors, both male psychiatrists, gave an example of a woman, Sharon, who after several good but unconsummated dates suggested to her new boyfriend in very explicit terms that she wanted him to stay over. All of a sudden, what felt warm and romantic turned weird, Sharon said. The boyfriend made an excuse, left and never called again. More than 20 years later, the book continues to make a good point: Even with all the progress toward equality between the sexes, even with all our leaning in, women are still expected to act sweet and innocent on a date. It turns out the role of devil was never ours to play. Editors note: The writers book, Unremarried Widow, was reviewed in The New York Times on Sunday, Jan. 5.

PAGE 84 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 lead be an animal, says actor Jon Hoche, one of three actors who, as a team, portray Joey (four teams rotate between performances). Not only an animal, but one that is actually an animal, (not anthropomorphized). It doesnt sing and dance and talk. Its an actual animal. Thats never been done before in theater. The Lion King has its talking and singing cartoon-like characters, and Avenue Q has its Muppet-like characters, but War Horse is different. The horse puppets you see are horses, the crow puppets are crows, the goose puppet is a goose, Mr. Hoche says. None of them are trying to emulate human traits. The horses in the Tony Award-winning play that comes to the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall March 11-16 are slightly larger-than-life-sized puppets created by Handspring Puppet Company in South Africa. They are so realistic that audiences quickly forget theyre watching puppets even when they can see the puppeteers manipulating each horse. The actors who work with them quickly get caught up in the spell, too. For us, its a live animal onstage, says Michael Wyatt Cox, who plays Albert, the young man who owns Joey. Theyre so magical to watch Its amazing having a live animal onstage that youre having a scene with.Joey comes to lifeThe horses are constructed out of an aluminum frame with plywood and cane. The mane and tail are made of the same material Fed Ex uses for shipping envelopes, says Mr. Hoche. The horse bodies are covered in a nylon type of fabric that allows the puppeteers to look out, he adds, but depending upon whether theyre lit from the back or the front, the puppets appear to be solid. Joey and Topthorn, another horse in the play, are each manipulated by three puppeteers. The actors refer to the roles as head, heart, hind, with one puppeteer responsible for the head, another for the front legs and another who manipulates the back legs and tail. Though the animals movements are choreographed, the puppeteers are given room to improvise every night, so no two shows are the same. First and foremost, when we perform, we are a horse, says Mr. Hoche. Every night, we have to react to the actors as truthfully as a horse would. So were not listening to the dialogue, were listening to the emotions that theyre giving us, and the tone of their voice. If an actor says a line a little more aggressively, we can react differently Truly, you never see the same exact show twice. Mr. Cox says the improvisational element of each performance is huge. If I get too close to Joey, he says, and Im having an emotional scene and I yell, he reacts like an animal. A scene unfolds in a certain way and they have their choreography, but their ability to listen and react naturally is what makes the show so good. Mr. Cox grew up in rural Florida in Jupiter, around horses. His family owned two when he was young, and his veterinarian father made house calls at farms. To be around horses that much in my formative years had a big impact on me in my personality, he says. And its obviously paying big dividends for me in this. Horses are so empathic. They have such a power to feel and take on our energy and understand us more than people realize. You can see that with dogs, too, he says. Its amazing what animals can read, how much of us they can understand even more than people, I think. Horses are emotional animals, he says, and War Horse shows that well. And Joey as a foal is the cutest puppet in American theater, and always will be. Hes insanely cute.Working as a teamOff stage, the horse puppets hang from a stand when not being used. It looks like a horse, but without the puppeteers inside, theres definitely a vacancy there, Mr. Cox says. Mr. Hoche, whos also the shows puppet captain, is a head puppeteer for Joey. He stands outside of the horse, manipulating its head and ears. Im pretty grateful I get to do the head position, because a horse has an acute sense of hearing. Where I move the ears is the story of how Joey is feeling. For example, he can turn one ear in the direction of someone whos talking to give the illusion that Joey is listening. Mr. Hoche recalls sitting in the front row for War Horse when it played at Lincoln Center in New York City. I had seen pictures of (the horses) but had never seen them move, he says. The second I saw them onstage, I got emotional. I fell in love with them. I thought they were the most amazing things Id ever seen. Auditioning for the role was baptism by fire for the actors, he says. When they walked into the room, a horse puppet was waiting for them. The actors were divided into groups of three and told, Well, heres the horse puppet, lets see what you can do with it. They really were looking for people who could communicate well together, who were really good listeners, Mr. Hoche says. They had to easily relinquish their ego in order to act as one personality, one horse. Mr. Hoche has done some hand-androd puppetry in off-Broadway and offoff-Broadway plays, but the backgrounds of the puppeteers in War Horse vary. Some are actors, some are dancers, some are gymnasts. It was more important to find good people who could work together well and listen to each other than to have famous puppeteers, he says. As actors, we treat this just like any other part, where we have to devote ourselves and give everything we have to the character. The thing that is interesting about this is, not only do I have to believe Im a horse, but Im a horse with two other people. Its a hard thing to explain. Its a magical thing to see these people come together and give up all their ego and learn how to move as one thing, and give a truly convincing performance. And people in audiences across the country suspend their belief that the horse is a puppet, he adds. You hear oohs and aahs and applause and people crying. People really believe and really connect with the puppet. Because the work is so physically demanding in addition to working within the approximately 120-pound frame of the horse, the actors must carry 160-pound riders on top of it four different teams of puppeteers rotate the role of Joey throughout the week. Its an athletic job, Mr. Cox says. And each of the four teams that rotate as Joey embues its own personality in the horse, he adds. To generalize: One is a troublemaker, one is very devoted and always wants to be close to him, one is very aloof and stoic, and one is powerful and bold. And that makes the show so much easier to do, he says. I can let go and listen to Joey, talk to him and let his personality shine through.

(U.S. 41) NAPLES | 239-598-1605 | WATERSIDESHOPS.COM WATERSIDESHOPS BRINKHOFF/MGENBURG / COURTESY PHOTOActors spent time studying horse behavior in order to play the role of Joey. When War Horse opened in Londons West End, there was a buzz about it among actors. There were whispers of a really cool show over in Britain that was very interesting, and using puppets, says actor Joel Reuben Ganz, who was most recently seen locally in Florida Repertory Theatres My Three Angels. Puppets, however, dont have much legitimacy in the minds of some theatergoers, he adds. People hear the word puppets and think Avenue Q, or the Muppets. But War Horse was different. What people didnt know was that something they had never seen before was happening in Britain. When the show was coming to Lincoln Center, Mr. Ganz auditioned an intense and lengthy process he describes as a journey. He recalls three-hour workshops that included improvisational exercises such as puppeteering balls of paper and making them come alive. Each subsequent call-back was a threehour workshop, he says. They wanted to see if you could breathe together. We were taught that the genesis for any puppet was breath. Without breath, the object isnt alive. He got the part of being the heart or front end of Joey, the lead horse, working with a team with two other puppeteers. A couple of months before starting War Horse, Mr. Ganz was doing a show in a rural area and was able to spend some time at a horse farm, studying and interacting with horses. The War Horse cast also went to stables together and watched numerous horse videos. Mr. Ganz also read How to Think Like a Horse, by horse trainer and instructor Cherry Hill. Of the amazingly diverse tons of material that was made available to us, that book was incredible, he says. If you touch a horse on its left flank, what is the muscle reaction? What is a horses field of vision? Where do they like you to stand near to them? What stimuli do they react to or not react to? We were really invested in studying how horses think and react, how their bodies are constructed to make them react in certain given ways. Then he had to take that personal understanding and blend it with two other people. (The role of Joey was divided among four teams of three puppeteers each, with teams rotating performances.) The three of you have to create one animal, he says. You do it without talking. Theres no Lets go right, lets go left. You might speak in rehearsal, here and there. But once we were portraying Joey or Topthorn (another horse puppet in the show) we didnt speak to each other. The puppets are constructed from hollowed-out aluminum, cane, rope, bicycle brake cable, black wires, foam, leather and paper. Their eyes are made out of polished blocks of resin, so when the light shines on them, they look as if they have life in them. Youre out there (on stage), and one of the most amazing challenges is, how do you stay alive and listening? How do you do your best to react as the horse would react, and avoid anthropomorphic choices? If a horse is smart, it can develop a vocabulary of 20 to 25 words, he says. Youre on stage you hear what the cues are, but you cant react to the lines, he says. You have to react to the stimulus that is created. You have to try to keep yourself in the animal zone and stay live to that. Breath is the life of the animal. Whether or not theyre animal lovers, audiences tend to get wrapped up in the story of War Horse, Mr. Ganz says. He remembers bowing at a curtain call at the Vivian Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center after one of the early performances in 2011, before the play won five Tony Awards (including Best Play). Looking out at the 1,100 people standing and applauding, he saw an older man, slowly clapping and crying. Then he saw a 10-year-old girl clapping and crying. And I knew, this show is going to be a really big success. If we can touch this section of people across the board male, female, old, young were doing something right. He predicts War Horse will be in theater history books. It has been and will be something that people talk about forever in the history of theater. No one would know my face, no one would know who I am. I was a part of something really beautiful. Nearly 1 million people saw the show at Lincoln Center, he adds. I got to be a part of a team of people who were creating a story that was so powerful that people said, Ive never seen anything like that before.

PAGE 88 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 6-12, 2014 ARTS COMMENTARYBill Morrisons unbearably beautiful decomposition of filmIn Bill Morrisons wonderfully strange and mysterious films, walls melt, people and objects materialize and vanish in swirling mists and skies bubble with the ferocity of lava. He weaves his work out of reels of decomposing early 20th century film. Others would throw out or reject such footage for its imperfections, but Mr. Morrison likes the eerie beauty and unexpected new imagery. The award-winning filmmaker is perhaps best known for his 2002 experimental collage film, Decasia: The State of Decay. (Decasia is a made-up word combining decay with fantasia.) The film was the most modern film named to the U.S. Library of Congress 2013 National Film Registry, which preserves works of great cultural, historic or aesthetic significance to the nations cinematic heritage. Mr. Morrisons works have been shown in theaters, museums, galleries and concert halls around the world. The Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota will screen his 2012 film, The Great Flood, at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 13, at the Historic Asolo Theater. Mr. Morrison will also discuss his work. The event is part of the museums NowHere: Finding Our Way in the 21st Century series. The Great Flood, which had its U.S. theatrical release in the winter of 2013 at the IFC Center in New York City, has also been shown at Carnegie Hall, Chicagos Symphony Hall, Royce Hall in Los Angeles and the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. The 80-minute film focuses on the Mississippi River flood of 1927, when torrential rains caused the river to overflow its banks in 145 places from Cairo, Ill., to New Orleans, flooding 27,000 square miles and displacing more than 1 million people. Mr. Morrison became interested in The Great Flood while reading John M. Barrys book, Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America. It was an incredible piece of writing and research, he says. (But) a lot of people have forgotten about (the flood). All those old blues songs, Blind Lemon Jeffersons Rising Highwater Blues and Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joes When the Levee Breaks, which Led Zeppelin covered, come from that. Mr. Morrison collected footage of the flood and its aftereffects from a variety of archives, including the National Archives and the Library of Congress. Much of it has never been seen before by the public. The sprawling newsreel outtakes are what give his movie its character, he says. These are people with idiosyncracies and humor in the face of tragedy The way they hold themselves, the way they act, is very familiar to us, whether black, white, rich, poor. Some of it is most revealing. Clearly the people who took the footage were given free rein, and under some very difficult circumstances. Its a real treasure trove. The film, which is not narrated, is organized in 12 chapters. It shows flooded homes, water lapping at roofs, people escaping in rowboats and stranded on roofs with their dogs. There are images of people, with all their worldly belongings packed in suitcases and barrels, huddled together on trains going north. A lot of people got on trains, got out of there, Mr. Morrison says, but blacks were kept at the levee camp that (then Secretary of Commerce Herbert) Hoover set up. Some were forced at gunpoint to work shoring up the levees for white neighborhoods, he says. Others had to assist in dynamiting the banks that would flood their own neighborhoods, thus protecting the white neighborhoods on the opposite bank. One of the films chapters is devoted to the 1927 copy of the Sears Roebuck catalog, a collectors item that personifies the boom time of the roaring twenties of America. There were 75 million catalogs one for every two people in the country, he says. It was the link to the outside world, he says. Some houses would have two books: The Bible and the Sears catalog. It was important, especially in rural America. You could get absolutely everything: nuts and bolts, tombstones, your house, games, bicycles, musical instruments What we need and what we dream of having were in those books. Looking at the images in the Sears catalog, he says, You think about all this stuff thats getting wet Then, toward the end of the film, after seeing all these sharecroppers tilling away on fields or levees or the reconstruction, theres a very long shot of an African-American Baptist church in Chicago. Everyone is leaving (dressed) in their very best Its a human river leaving this church in Chicago. Its like thats the goal. The dream is alive, in the clothes that we dreamt about. The Great Flood is a collaboration with guitarist Bill Frisell, who composed music especially for the film. Generally in films, the music is scored after the film is cut. Its the last thing you do, says Mr. Morrison. With me, its almost the reverse. I cut to music. During the process, Mr. Frisell invited Mr. Morrison to go out on the road with him and his band. They toured through the south in 2011, during a time when the Mississippi had swelled and was threatening to flood. I felt what it was like to be in a town, wondering whether the levees would hold or not, he says. Mr. Morrison and Mr. Frisell have known each other for more than 20 years; they met in 1992 when Mr. Morrison was a dishwasher at the Village Vanguard in New York City. The dishwasher has a very hallowed spot; hes the only person allowed in the kitchen besides the musicians and the owner, he recalls. The kitchen is a real nerve central. You come into contact with a lot of musicians. Some treat you like youre a dishwasher, and some as a human. Bill (Frisell) was in the latter category. He used Mr. Frisells music in two previous short films, but both artists wanted to work together on something bigger. The Great Flood is a perfect collaboration of filmmaker, imagery, music and composer. The decomposition of some of the film works to underscore the floods power of destruction. Flashes of white echo the blinding lightning; dark spots and splotches on the film make it look as though it, too, has been compromised by the floodwaters. Looking at the images on the film, he says, you have an uncanny sense that youre looking at ghosts, youre seeing messages from the past, he says, adding, Im always happy when film is rotting in an interesting way.

We would love to talk with you.239-597-0133 866-597-0133 Is it worth $10? YesFor his final film, Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki has chosen the life story of aviation pioneer Jiro Horikoshi, who was the chief engineer of Japanese fighter planes during World War II. The choice could not be more fitting, as many of Mr. Miyazakis films (Spirited Away, Ponyo) have included flying sequences, dreams and a mentor/protge relationship, all of which are on full display here. The story, which Mr. Miyazaki wrote as well as directed, starts with Jiro as a boy in 1918 Japan. An opening sequence in which young Jiro dreams of flying airplanes informs us of his love for aircraft. An aviation magazine tells him of a prominent Italian aircraft manufacturer named Caproni (Stanley Tucci). Knowing hes too nearsighted to fly, Jiro (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) aspires to follow in Mr. Capronis footsteps as an aeronautical engineer. Rather than follow a traditional narrative structure with rising action and a clear progression through Jiros journey, Mr. Miyazaki focuses on major events in Jiros life, his dreams for success and his evolution as a designer. As a young man, he heroically rescues Kinu (Mae Whitman) and her little sister Nahoko (Emily Blunt) during an earthquake, but desires no credit for saving their lives. As Jiro ages, he, along with his boss Hattori (Mandy Patinkin) and good friend Honjo (John Krasinski), becomes immersed in an aerial development battle between Germany and Japan. The Depression, tuberculosis and Japans entry into WWII also greatly impact Jiros life, all to the backdrop of strict cultural rituals and professional pressure. As a result of the impetus on these events, the film doesnt gradually rise in tension and suspense as one might expect, but the series of adventures do go a long way toward forming Jiro as a person. Because he is idealistic and affable, were happy to root for his success. This is consistent, generally speaking, with classic Japanese filmmaking in that the focus is on characters and emotions rather than plot. Those not familiar with Japanime will note the differences between Japanese and American animation styles. Whereas American animation attempts to be richly detailed and only exaggerates to accentuate a characteristic (Mr. Incredibles heaving chest, for example), Japanime isnt nearly as detailed and uses muted colors. Japanese characters often have large, reflective eyes accompanied by small noses and mouths. Moreover, while most if not all American animation is aimed at children, Japanime is targeted to both children and adults. Its not surprising, then, that the Motion Picture Association of America rated The Wind Rises PG-13 (though a PG rating would be more appropriate). This is not the first time Mr. Miyazaki has said hes working on his last film (Howls Moving Castle in 2004 was supposed to be his last as well), but if this one is indeed his swan song, it ends his career on a solid note. The Wind Rises isnt quite the trippy surreal work of brilliance that some of his other films are and it couldnt be, given the subject matter but it is a moving and inspiring story thats nicely told. Dan Hudak is a nationally syndicated, Miami-based film critic whose work has appeared extensively in print, radio and television. Read more of his work at CAPSULESLabor Day (Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, Gatlin Griffith) In 1987 New Hampshire, a depressed mother (Ms. Winslet) and her son (young Mr. Griffith) allowed an escaped convict (Mr. Brolin) to stay at their modest home. For a story ostensibly based in reality it strains too much credibility to be taken seriously. Simply put, it all feels preposterous. Rated PG-13.Gimme Shelter (Vanessa Hudgens, Rosario Dawson, Brendan Fraser) A homeless teen (Ms. Hudgens) finds her estranged father (Mr. Fraser) and learns shes pregnant. Ms. Hudgens is a bit out of her element in this type of drama, and the story is full of illogical decisions that strain credibility. Rated PG-13. Her (Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, voice of Scarlett Johansson) In the near future, a loner (Mr. Phoenix) purchases and falls in love with a computer operating system (Ms. Johansson) designed with human emotions. With a great original screenplay from writer/director Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things Are), this is a smart movie that offers a plausible look at the future and what it means to be in a relationship. Rated R. >> Human voices were used to create most of the sound effects in The Wind Rises, including the sounds of airplane engines and an earthquake. LATEST FILMSThe Wind Rises n W t a I J u

Taylor. Outskirts Press. 306 pages. Trade paperback, $16.95.Robert J. Taylor has written a memoir of Americans abroad that is suspenseful, informative and colorful. Mr. Taylor and his wife, Sue, led a life of privilege in Karachi, Pakistan. And yet, the title of Hardship Post is not merely ironical; it carries certain fundamental truths. The walls around their upper-class residence in an elite neighborhood provided privacy and security, but these barriers are also emblems of confinement and isolation. When Bob Taylor, an experienced hospital administrator, lands a plumb position helping to plan and develop the Aga Khan University Hospital, he gains not only a life-changing opportunity, but entrance into a land filled with growing instability and threat. Mr. Taylors achievement is to keep readers in a place of tension between privilege and danger over this four-year sojourn in the mid-1980s. During this period, he and Sue rekindle their marriage through a shared adventure, allow their children to become citizens of the world, see a radically different culture close up and work at tasks that make a difference, bringing unparalleled health services to many thousands of people within a larger enterprise that helps millions. In writing this narrative, the author looked back from a perspective of 30 years. The lessons he learned along the way and in the decades since could have very easily burdened the storytelling with hindsight understandings and conclusions. But Mr. Taylor is able to keep things fresh, capturing the innocents abroad feeling of new beginnings and idealistic expectations. To have servants on hand to operate your residence and relieve family members of domestic chores is clearly not a hardship. If you are not used to it, however, the presence of others this new kind of extended family or household is not necessarily pleasant. Nor is the sense of social obligation to employ a servant contingent. What might be a hardship? Finding an appropriate residence; getting repairs done in a timely fashion; getting even unreliable telephone service; worrying about the shortage of safe water for bathing, drinking and cleaning. Simply being out of your element in a situation with different social and workplace manners TAYLOR Pre-Owned Womens, Mens & ChildrensDesigner Fashions with Impeccable Style & Sophistication Resale!

Naples Princess... and expectations can be difficult. Fear of political instability and consequent danger could also be considered a hardship. Mr. Taylor provides abundant particulars about all of these concerns. The familys transition was eased by the fact that Karachi has an extensive contingent of expatriate westerners as well as an elite class of western-facing, educated Pakistanis. The Taylors find a fine American school for their children. They become part of a network of other professionals that allows them to have an active social life, to receive useful advice about what to expect and to feel at least marginally at home. In various ways, they become community leaders. Intermittently, however, they become aware of how this community is not at all a typical Pakistani community; the Taylors are living in a kind of bubble. Their time in Karachi is a time in which militant Islamic extremism gains strength, and with it anti-American sentiment and actions. As the years go by, violence comes closer and closer to their temporary home. Eventually, as the teaching hospital gets ready to open, Bob and Sue know that it is time to go back to the U.S. Theyve already picked out Vail as their next home. The texture of Hardship Post is novelistic. Mr. Taylor has a great eye for painting places and people. We get to know several of his co-workers and friends quite well. We also follow Sues successful attempts to make a place for herself and contribute her skills. This is difficult even in their partly western bubble community, as the place of women is so very different in Pakistan from what it is in the west. Suspense grows out of Mr. Taylors handling of how he and his wife encountered and worked their way through the many frustrations and obstacles that challenged their life abroad. He does a fine job of communicating both the facts and the feelings. Mr. Taylor has been an advisor to the World Bank, USAID, WHO and other international agencies and has worked in 30 countries none of which had safe drinking water. In 2012, the as-yet unpublished manuscript for Hardship Post won first place in the Royal Palm Literary Awards competition. A native of Minneapolis, he now lives with his wife in Punta Gorda. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

RATED #1 BURGER FOR 20 YEARS IN A ROW BY NAPLES DAILY NEWS & GULFSHORE LIFE MAGAZINE! 239.263.7254 Located at:2555 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103 Celebrating 20 Years! THANK YOU NAPLES! Acclaimed vocalist Kevin Mahogany will headline the 2014 Alive in the World concert benefiting The Foundation for The Developmentally Disabled. Presented by the Trust for the Advancement of Responsible Artists, the concert and auction take place Thursday evening, May 8, at ArtisNaples. Only 200 tickets will be sold for the performance in the intimate Daniels Pavilion. With his gift for bebop, ballads, blues and swing, Mr. Mahogany bloomed early as a performer. As a 12-year-old in 1970, he was playing the baritone sax and working professionally with Eddie Bakers New Breed Orchestra. By his senior high school year, he discovered he was a singer. At Baker University, he formed his own vocal jazz choir. After graduating, he returned to his roots in Kansas City and its music scene. His debut album, Double Rainbow, was released in 1993. Since then, he has released albums on Enja, Warner Brothers, Telarc and finally on his own label, Mahogany Jazz. Mr. Mahogany has been an in-demand sideman and guest artist with a select cadre of jazz stars. Hes recorded with T.S. Monk, The Ray Brown Trio, Marlena Shaw, Roseanna Vitro, Carl Allen, Barbara Morrison and Elvin Jones. He also teaches at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and the University of Miami. Naples attorney Bob Goldman, the director and founder of the Trust for the Advancement of Responsible Artists, calls Mr. Mahogany the standout jazz vocalist of his generation and promises that his dynamic and down-home artistry will make for an amazing show. TARA was founded as a result of Mr. Goldmans interest in autism and other developmental disabilities. The Foundation for the Developmentally Disabled is committed to ensuring that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the support they need to be full members of the community. The foundations efforts encompass all ages and all spectrums from autism to Down syndrome, Fragile X, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and various other developmental disabilities. Just supporting the cause is reason enough to come to this event, Mr. Goldman says about the annual Alive in the World concert. But, people also get a great performance by artists they might otherwise never get to see. Previous headliners include Arnold McCuller, Ben Taylor, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Rodney Crowell, Brandi Carlile and Phoebe Snow. For his May 8 appearance in Naples, Mr. Mahogany will be accompanied by his own five-piece band. The Community School of Naples all-star jazz band will open the show. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction.

Downtown is chock full of antique stores that harken to days gone by. Its hard to imagine a more appropriate place for the annual Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo, which takes place Friday through Sunday, March 7-9, starting at 11 a.m. each day. Events include rough stock competition on bulls and bucking broncos. All rough stock events last just eight seconds. The higher and harder the bronco kicks, the higher the score. The number of swoops and turnbacks is also considered. All this action occurs with the rider holding only the reins; there is no horn on the saddle to help him stay astride. Any rider who is thrown from an animal is disqualified. And then theres bull riding, with cowboys struggling to stay atop of more than 1,800 pounds of bucking bull. The stopwatch also ticks during the barrel racing, steer wrestling and tie-down roping events. Arcadia has been in the rodeo business for more than 80 years, hosting a hoedown every year since 1928, with the exception of 1951. In 1978, the town joined the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. As a result of this membership, the points garnered by Arcadia contestants count toward eligibility to participate in the Wrangler National Rodeo Finals held each year in Las Vegas. Admission to this weekends Arcadia rodeo is $20-$25 ($15 for ages 11 and younger). The town also hosts youth rodeo competition on Saturdays, March 15 and April 12. Rodeo grounds are at 124 Heard St. For more information, call (863) 494-2014 or www.arcadiarodeo. com. Yee haw! Its rodeo timeBY NANETTE CRISTFlorida Weekly Corrspondent JAMES K.

(239) 593-7600 Begins March 2nd KOVEL: ANTIQUESLook for emblems of quality on collectible cameo glass BY KIM AND TERRY KOVELSpecial to Florida WeeklyCameo glass is popular with collectors. Galle, Thomas Webb, Mt. Washington and Daum are well known, but some smaller companies that worked at the same time are almost unknown. Burgun, Schverer & Cie (son) was founded in 1711 in Meisenthal, France. The company always made top-quality glass and survived by changing methods and designs to attract new customers. It made blown glass, watch glass, eyeglass lenses and tableware. By the 1860s, it was famous for its understanding of glass-making. Emile Galle was an apprentice there before he left for his fathers company, and the two companies had a working arrangement for about 10 years. In 1895 Burg un, Schverer & Cie produced cameo glass by the new and less expensive method of painting layers of colored and clear glass and then carving them. It also made other art glass, including enameled and gilt vases, often with silver mounts. Burgun, Schverer & Cie won many awards for its glass, and in 1901 it became a public company. It is now called Verrerie de Meisenthal. Its glass has long been marked with a hard-to-understand emblem that includes the Cross of Lorraine, a thistle and the letters BS & C on a banner. Look for cameo glass by Burgun, Schverer & Cie. It may be overlooked by those with less information about the glasss quality and mark. Q: I have four bentwood chairs that came from an old seminary. Underneath the seats there is a label that reads J.S. Ford Johnson Co., New York, N.Y., 33 East 47th St., Chicago, Ill., San Francisco, Calif. They were patented in March 1910 and are in good solid condition. Can you tell me something about the history? A: J.S. Ford Johnson Co. was founded in 1867 by John S. Ford and Henry W. Johnson. The company started out in Columbus, Ohio, moved to Indiana a year later and moved to Chicago in 1872. The company made Mission furniture, including some pieces similar to Stickley furniture. It was one of the largest manufacturers of chairs in the United States. The company went bankrupt in 1913 and was sold. Your set of bentwood chairs is worth about $600 if the chairs are in excellent condition.Q: Is a rectangular yellow planter marked Cookson 923 of any value? A: Gerald Cookson founded Cookson Pottery Co. in Roseville, Ohio, in 1945. Garden ware, planters, vases and florist ware were produced. Cooksons molds were made by Ungemach Pottery, another Roseville company, and the glazes were applied at Cookson Pottery. Cooksons son took over the business in 1966. The business was sold in 1982 but continued to operate until 1995. Value of your planter: about $20. Q: I have a pewter stein marked F & M over N. Its 11 inches tall and has raised decorations of classical figures picking grapes from a vine. Can you tell me who made it and what its worth? A: The mark was used by Felsenstein & Mainzer, a pewterer in Nuremberg, Germany. The company was founded by Simon Felsenstein and Sigmund Mainzer in 1886.

Felsenstein & Mainzer steins have sold at auction recently for $85. Q: My Brownie Target Six-20 camera is in excellent condition, never used, with the original box it came in. The camera is metal and the front is black and white with vertical lines. Id like to find out how old it is and if film still is available. And how much is the camera worth? A: Eastman Kodak Co. made the Brownie Target Six20 from July 1946 until May 1952. The front of your camera is known as the Art Deco face. The camera originally came with a roll of 620 film. The film was discontinued in 1995, but rolls may be available from sources for out-of-production film. You can also use a roll of 120 film rewound onto a 620 spool, which is larger than a 120 spool. It takes two 620 spools to do this and must be done in a darkroom or darkbox so that no light touches the film. You can buy spare 620 spools online. The camera originally sold for $3.50. Today it sells online for $10-$25 without a box and $15-$40 with the original box. Q: When I was rehabbing our garage, which was built in about 1917, I found a large piece of colorful cardboard in the old insulation. It looks like it was an advertising sign or perhaps the side of a breakfast food box of some kind. Theres a childs face on it with the phrase Toddy builds health and strength. Can you help identify the ad? Does it have any value? A: Toddy was a brand name for a meal in a glass sold by a Buffalo, N.Y., company named Maltop, Inc. The milk-based drink, apparently meant for children, was heavily marketed in the eastern United States and Canada in the late 1920s, so your garage may not be quite as old as you think it is or it was insulated a decade after it was built. The drink was sold in cans in grocery stores. Your cardboard piece may have been the side of a carton that once held Toddy cans. The most common Toddy-related collectible is a mixer-style drinking glass embossed with the brand name and a childs face. The glasses sell for $10 to $20 online. Your ad would sell for only a few dollars. Why not frame it and hang it in your garage or kitchen as part of your houses history? Tip: Dont swim in a pool wearing jewelry. Chlorine makes it dull. If you are in the ocean, the glimmer of metal may attract unwanted fish. Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Feb. 28-March 22: The Butcher Gwydion Suilebhan compelling drama was featured in Gulfshore Playhouses first annual New Works Festival in August 2013.

I hope not, because I really like her! Fiona D., via emailA: Hot on the heels of the sudden ouster of music director Harold Wheeler and his 28-person orchestra, the folks at DWTS have created another shakeup in the firing of Brooke, whos to be replaced by season 11s third-place finisher, Fox sports reporter Erin Andrews. Beginning this fall, Erin will join perennial host Tom Bergeron for season 18 of the hit dancing-competition show. As for the shows musical accompaniment, word is that the show will use sound recordings and a small electric band to attract a younger audience. To me, this is a huge mistake: Part of the shows appeal was its elegant, bigband ballroom feel that Harold and his orchestra provided. To replace that with a small electric band? No, thank you. Q: Do you have any news on the reincarnation of NBCs Heroes? Daniel G., Birmingham, Ala.A: NBC has confirmed that it will air a 13-episode miniseries event called Heroes Reborn, to air in 2015. It is being billed as a stand-alone series, but no word yet on which, if any, characters from the original series will be resurrected. According to the shows website: NBC will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the characters and new storylines. This leveraging of social media is a way for fans to re-engage with what was one [of] the true pioneers in multiplatform storytelling. Q: What are Michael J. Foxs plans now that his sitcom has been canceled? Kathy I., via email A: Michael will return later this season to The Good Wife as Louis Canning for a multi-episode, season-ending story arc. As for The Michael J. Fox Show, a representative at NBC says that the network will air the remaining episodes at some point this season. Also pulled from NBCs Thursday night lineup, freshman comedy Sean Saves the World, starring Will and Grace favorite Sean Hayes. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Same idea, you have the sins of the world against you, but theres a good, common core within you. This is the first joint project for Marco Lutheran and the Marco-based Island Theater Company. Its an ambitious start, with a cast of 30 and an eight-member band among the 50 people involved in the production. When the Island Theater Company was formed in 2012, Mr. Greusel expressed an interest in teaming up for a production, according to Pat Berry, who co-founded the company with fellow Marco resident Pattie Ziesig. The women are co-directing Frankenstein: A New Musical. The cast contains a number of people whove either never acted before or never acted in a musical. Both descriptions apply to the fatherdaughter-son trio of Scott, Sahara and Samson Brown. Scott Brown initially viewed the production as an opportunity for Sahara, 10, and Samson, 8, to make their stage debuts. Sahara was gung-ho about trying out, but Samson had reservations, says Mr. Brown. So he decided to support his son by also auditioning.

Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 405-8957 A meal at Bellissimo should not be a hasty affair; one should slow down and savor the food and conversation. Allow the restaurants villa-style decor to transport you far from its run-ofthe-mill plaza setting. If you love the components of Italian cooking but are tired of the same-old picattas and parmigianas, Bellissimo is worth adding to your rotation for innovations such as sole Francese or snapper puttanesca. Savor the delicate house-made cannelloni stuffed with a mixture of veal, beef and chicken that surprisingly doesnt hit the stomach like a ton of bricks. Another surprise came with veal medallions served with fresh radicchio, arugula and endive instead of a heavy starch. Oddly, though, the star ingredient was buried under a pile of greens just like the beef carpaccio we had as an appetizer. Beer and wine served.Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2013 Chops City Grill, 8200 Health Park Center, Bonita Springs; 992-4677 More than a decade after my memorable first visit, Chops still delivers dazzling food and draws diners willing to pay luxury prices for it. The Asian-accented menu remains focused on grilled prime steaks and other meats, though Chops has never given seafood short shrift. The 300-bottle wine list emphasizes reds but offers a good range of tastes, regions and value. You can even get a choice of wetor dry-aged beef. A nearly 2-inchthick ribeye was flawlessly grilled to create a crisp, bronze crust while sealing juices in the deep red, medium-rare interior. This is about as good as steak gets. A pan-seared black grouper with wild mushroom risotto and screaming hot rock shrimp sauce was perfectly cooked but overwhelmed by its sauce. Desserts are the usual suspects; you might want to enjoy another of Chops sexy cocktails instead. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2013 Eurasia, 8793 Tamiami Trail E., Naples; 352-0888Chef Ettore Mancini hails from Italy. His wife, who serves as the gracious hostess, has Vietnamese roots. And so they have married their heritages to create the menu at their East Naples restaurant. That means one member of the party can indulge in Vietnamese roasted quail, summer rolls and crepes, while another can tuck into Italian classics. From the Italian options, the hot antipasto provides tastes of clams oreganato, clam casino, baked shrimp and eggplant rollatini. The eggplant was the best of the bunch. Shrimp stuffed with crabmeat was nicely executed as well. Grilled beef with lemongrass had lots of fresh ingredients crunchy bean sprouts, grilled beef, vermicelli noodles but the lemongrass was undetectable.

Chef/owner Raphael Rottiers continues to bring Peruvian flavors to American palates in a way that has attracted a loyal following to his Golden Gate restaurant. On this visit, I loved the Paracas mussel shooters (shot glasses containing lime juice, rocoto peppers, cilantro, onions and mussels); a spectacular mixed ceviche rocoto apiscado (octopus, calamari, shrimp and fish in a vibrant sauce tinged with Peruvian rocoto pepper and Peruvian brandy), tiradito (escolar in a soy-citrus sauce); fluffy green tamales with cilantro beef sauce; aji tarwi fish (corvina grilled atop eggplant aji amarillo soffrito and purple mashed potatoes) and corvina con tacu tacu (topped with red onions, tomatoes and aji amarillo on a fat cake of rice and lima beans).

VerginaRestaurantNaples CUISINECider Press Cafs allure firmly planted in flavors even a carnivore will love How, you might ask, can a restaurant survive with nary a scrap of meat, seafood, dairy or soy on the menu? Oh, and no gluten, MSG, trans fat or sugar, either. Johan Everstijn, the inventive chef at Cider Press Caf, conjures up food so palatable and lovely that you likely wont miss a bit of whats not there. In fact, if someone didnt tell you, you might not even notice that some of those ingredients were missing. Welcome to Naples new bastion of Florida inspired, modernist plantbased cuisine, as Mr. Everstijn calls it. The description might be a mouthful thats hard to swallow, but the food all vegan and cooked to no more than 117 degrees is downright delicious. Ive tried raw cuisine before, but it wasnt this artful and sophisticated. Whats more, many of the raw foodists Ive encountered in the past have tended toward the militant side Raw food is THE way! whereas the friendly staff at the Cider Press Caf politely inquire as to your general diet Vegan? Vegetarian? Flexitarian? and they welcome all comers. I got the impression that the reason they asked was to acclimate those who might need explanations of ingredients such as cashew ricotta, zucchini noodles and jicama rice. Its clearly a different style of dining but one for which theres a hearty local appetite. So many people wanted to try the gorgeous dishes theyd seen pictured on Cider Press Facebook site for weeks that the cafe had to close for lunch two days after opening in late January to prepare more food and hire additional staff. Its a labor-intensive form of cuisine, but in the hands of someone as talented as Mr. Everstijn and his culinary team, the result is vibrant food that excites all of the senses. The chef comes to us via Oklahoma City, where he was the chef de cuisine of Matthew Kenney OKC, an acclaimed restaurant in which raw food ruled. Thats quite an accomplishment in a place best known for meat-centric barbecue. Having worked my way through much of the introductory menu, I understand the appeal. Take the Seminole corn chowder ($6) for starters. A bowl of rich mustardcolored soup studded with tiny dots of orange, it was a velvety blend of cashew cream, sweet corn and salmorejo, a thicker cousin of gazpacho. Served cold, it was slightly sweet and full of corn flavor. We finished very drop, then moved on to an order of flatbread ($13) and a Florida roll ($14). The flatbread wasnt actually bread, although the two slices were flat and pliable with a firm, grainy sort of substance to them. Our server told us she thought they were a blend of flax seed and zucchini (dehydrated, perhaps). Whatever it was, it was pleasantly chewy and did a good job of supporting little mounds of intensely flavored tomato pesto, creamy herbed cashew ricotta, Meyer lemon olive tapenade, capers and fresh basil. The Florida roll was even better. It began with a piece of watermelon tuna watermelon cut into a thin stalk then marinated in tamari (yes, it contains soy, bu, unlike soy sauce, it contains little to no wheat). The result was a softer, slightly salty chunk that was then rolled with a similarly sized piece of mango inside shredded jicama made to resemble rice except that it was crunchier. Slices of ripe avocado were draped atop the roll, which was sliced in thick pieces for dipping into a cup of lime ponzu sauce. Not quite as sturdy as its traditional sushi cousins, it was nonetheless a bounty of textures and flavors, which we happily chased down with sliced of pickled ginger. From the five entree selections, we tried the chipotle enchiladas ($17) and the churrasco ($22). The enchiladas were popular and justifiably so. The three enchiladas were stuffed with a lively walnut chipotle picadillo, which was both smoky and crunchy, tucked into spiced corn tortillas, topped with a squiggle of smooth salsa verda and another of macadamia crema fresca and garnished with a sliver of jalapeno pepper. A colorful citrus slaw accompanied it, adding a pleasant crunch and coolness to the plate. The churrasco consisted of two quenelles, which resemble spoon-shaped dumplings often made of ground meats but in this case containing smoked nuts and portobello. One sat in a zesty chimichurri sauce, the other in a slightly sweet yellow aji-pineapple salsa. The sauces altered the quenelles flavor markedly, but both versions were tasty. Whipped garlic cauliflower trimmed with braised cauliflower completed the dish. For dessert, we sampled tiramisu ($10). With two layers of creamy lemon something (nut cream?) and two layers of a coffee-flavored something, it was light and fluffy as tiramisu should be, no matter what is was made of. A chocolate ganache ($6) was less successful, however. The ganache, which is generally soft, was very firm, making it difficult to cut even with a fork and knife. Once we managed to break it apart, we enjoyed the flavor, and the chocolate sauce that accompanied it was excellent. I also recommend trying the fresh apple cider, which tasted like pure, unadulterated apples in liquid form. Another recommendation: Order a bit more than you think youll want to eat. Portions are small, particularly the lasagna, which is lovely but we heard at least two people nearby discuss the fact that the small round layered creation came with no sides for $17. The cost, I believe, comes from the amount of labor and the high-quality organic and, when possible, locally sourced, ingredients used in the creation of these dishes. The staff was uniformly wonderful, attentive, charming and willing to answer whatever questions diners posed. The Cider Press Cafe isnt for everyone just those who value flavor, beauty and healthy ingredients. KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLY A Florida roll, above, is the cafes version of sushi, with jicama rice, watermelon tuna, mango, cilantro, lime ponzu sauce and pickled ginger.

BY BETSY CLAYTONFlorida Weekly CorrespondentBILL RING OF NAPLES LIKES TO remind Southwest Floridians that it doesnt take a large boat to enjoy Southwest Floridas waterways. A small boat opens up all the backwater, or you can go to the near-shore reefs, or you can troll in the bays and flats. And then if the weather is nice and the water is flat, Ill go 15 miles out, said Mr. Ring, a retiree living on Wiggins Pass who helped found the Bonita Bay Fishing Club. The fact that boating in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties is one for boats of all sizes and varied water-based interests (fishing, diving, paddling, waterfront dining, nature photography and more) makes this region not only a year-round experience for boaters, but also an affordable one. Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties offer inland waterways, most of which are tucked behind sugar-sand islands that create a buffer and calm backwaters. Whereas Floridas east coast boating brethren need amped up, expensive boats for blue-water Atlantic or competitive and crowded condo-canyon canal experiences, Southwest Florida boaters have it easy for any sized craft. They can anchor out in an estuary, paddle up a creek, fish a grass flat or sail in the bathtub-like, blue-green gulf. Boaters also are fortunate enough to find ample open space and less-crowded areas while also finding boating friends. Studies show one in every six households in the three-county region owns a boat. Thats 61,673 registered vessels. And that doesnt include the non-motorized paddlecraft and small sailboats the state doesnt require be registered. Theres great variety, said Hans Wilson of Fort Myers, owner of Hans Wilson & Associates who also is president of the Southwest Florida Marine Industries Association. More importantly, he grew up boating Southwest Florida waters, and despite the regions economic ebb and flow, he has never seen a waning interest in boating. You can run down the backside of Fort Myers Beach, or go up the Gordon River to its headwaters, Mr. Wilson said. Or go south to Keewaydin Island. Or trailer your boat to Chokoloskee and explore. Or go up the Imperial River as far as you can by powerboat and stop at the parks along shore. Then go by canoe the rest of the way up the river east of I-75. Ample boat ramps, marinas and waterfront properties are joined by boatlifts and docks throughout the region. Residents here get a boating lifestyle that rivals anywhere else. An abundance of waterfront restaurants and parks with docks that accommodate all sizes of vessels buttress the regions status. A boaters paradiseTheres a reason national magazines frequently put Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound and the Caloosahatchee on their covers, not to mention the salty shores of Naples and the intricate back bays that straddle Lee and Collier counties. Field & Stream magazine the granddaddy of all outdoor sports and fishing publications named Pine Island Sound among its top North American fishing destinations. BoatUS magazine, which goes to more than 500,000 readers in the nations largest boating organization, featured Picnic Island on its cover with an article about affordable waterfront real estate for boat lovers. The Intracoastal Waterway also meanders through these parts. That 3,000mile route brings exposure to Southwest Floridas gentle waters, particularly during winter months. The waterway runs for most of the length of the Eastern Seaboard, from its unofficial northern terminus at the Manasquan River in New Jersey, where it connects with the Atlantic Ocean at the Manasquan Inlet, then around the Gulf of Mexico to Brownsville, Texas. If boaters traveling down Floridas east coast dont want to navigate around South Florida and the Keys, they cut across the state and Lake Okeechobee, ending up cruising down the Caloosahatchee River. So even if youre not a boater, boat watching and checking out the port names on sterns is a pastime here. Heck, its a pastime everywhere, if youre an avid boater. Mr. Ring originally hails from Chicago. When he owned his 62-foot Ocean fly bridge, he frequented the Bahamas for billfishing. His 41-foot Tiara was perfect for Collier, Lee and Charlotte destinations. But a boater can derive pleasure from staying close to home, too, Mr. Ring said as he glanced out his window to Wiggins Pass. Its fun. Ive done every kind of fishing imaginable, and this is the spot, he said. Ditto, said Mr. Wilson. Come up with a list of 10 places to go this year and do one per month. Youll find great variety, he said. April and May are perfect the water is warm for swimming, its not raining yet so the water is clear, and cold fronts arent happening so the wind lies down.

8 MARCH 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLY access and most importantly a trophy case of gamefish species anglers worldwide seek. The passes are home to the largest tarpon migration in the United States. Offshore reefs and the Gulf bring charter fishing and spear fishing fun all while surrounded by a huge concentration of protected goliath grouper. The sandy shores and barrier islands offer pier and beach fishing for flounder; the estuaries behind those islands feature crafty snook, redfish and seatrout as well as sought-after cobia, tripletail and again those tarpon. Tournaments happen regularly, including the premier kayak fishing tournament of the Gulf Coast, the Calusa Blueway Kayak Fishing Tournament. Anglers also have ways to get involved in introducing underprivileged children to fishing. Mr. Ring, for example, spent two decades spearheading the Bonita Bay Fishing Clubs annual efforts to take youngsters out on the water. Dive into adventureAlthough most people think of the Keys for diving in Florida, locals know the more than 20 artificial reefs here offer easy-to-access dives that put you face to face with massive goliath grouper as well as rare whale sharks. A popular reef to dive is what locals refer to simply as The Mohawk. The U.S. Coast Guards Mohawk WPG-78 launched in 1934 and retired to its final resting place in the Gulf of Mexico on July 2, 2012. The ship, which had been docked on Fort Myers Beach, was towed 30 miles off Sanibel Island before being scuttled in 90 feet of water by six strategically placed charges meant to allow it to rest upright. The 165-foot vessel played a part in World War II combat operations, serving U.S. naval forces in the North Atlantic; during the war the ship was named the USS Mohawk CGC. In order to ensure no negative environmental impacts from its aging equipment, experts cleaned and prepared the ship prior to sending it on its last voyage. The USS Mohawk CGC Veterans Memorial Reef is the first military ship artificial reef to be a dedicated memorial to all United States veterans.Paddling pleasuresThe Paradise Coast Paddling Trail in Collier County, the Calusa Blueway in Lee County and also Charlotte Countys trail offer myriad options for canoeists, kayakers and stand-up paddleboarders. A network of paddling clubs and the annual Calusa Blueway Paddling Festival (in November each fall at the Sanibel Causeway with organizations from Charlotte, Lee and Collier) help connect newcomers and visitors alike. The explosion of paddle sports here is due in part to the intricate mangrove islands and shallow estuaries. Paddlers navigate tunnels through the mangroves that meander into lagoon-like areas ala Robinson Crusoe, with blush-colored roseate spoonbills feeding as if you werent even there. When people kayak here, they have more than a 360-degree experience: They can see into the water and watch for gamefish, starfish, lightning whelks and blue crab. They can look overhead and see frigate birds that soar like albatrosses and osprey and pelicans that plunge from skyscraper heights into the water. Waterfront diningPerhaps this is the most carefree of boating pastimes take the boat to a restaurant, enjoy a low-key atmosphere and waterfront view, then boat home. Ask a boater to recount his or her recent outings and it sometimes sounds like a restaurant guide: Rumrunners in Cape Coral, Doc Fords on Fort Myers Beach, North Fort Myers Three Fishermen and on and on. Dont forget famous Cabbage Key on Pine Island Sound, Parrot Key on San Carlos Island, Lazy Flamingo in Bokeelia or Barnacle Phils on North Captiva. Collier boaters can pull up to Stans Idle Hour in Goodland, The Capri Fish House on Isle of Capri or The Boathouse on Naples Bay, which has a grand view of Naples Bay at the tip of downtown Naples. Dont forget Pinchers Tin City just before Gordon River Bridge. Charlotte boaters have the popular Burnt Store Marina and its restaurants as well as the quaint waterfront locations along the Peace River and Charlotte Harbor, including Fishermens Wharf. Nature watchingIf there is one thing all boaters be they sailors, paddlers or power boaters tend to mention, its the dolphin. Southwest Florida is home to one of the nations highest concentrations of bottlenose dolphins, and finding Flipper surface next to you is commonplace. Southwest Florida also is a bird-lovers delight. More than 300 species live here year-round, winter here or migrate through. Showy and huge white pelicans arrive in November, for example, and number in the flocks of 30 as they float near the Intracoastal Waterway, herding fish with efficiency before departing around Easter. Their cousins, brown pelicans, live here 365 days a year, with the males adding lovely yellow colors to their stately heads during breeding season. Just joy ridingHalf the fun is just powering up and hitting the throttle to watch the horizon unfold and feel the salt spray on your face. Counties offer boaters resources for getting around. In Lee, for example, the Natural Resources Department this spring is updating and reprinting the Lee County Boaters Guide. The countys smart-phone app, which is free for Droid and iPhone users, also is being upgraded. It will work faster and provide more functionality, said Lee Countys Justin McBride. We are adding tides, improving the weather function, lots of stuff. With the shallow landscape here, its critical boaters head out with a chart, smart-phone app or GPS unit. Then again, youre not really a true Southwest Florida boater until youve got a story to share about running aground.

10 MARCH 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe history of boats and Naples goes so far back that it dates to a time centuries before the city was formed. One must wind the way-back machine to pre-Columbian times, long before the arrival of Europeans on this continent, before Ponce de Leon sailed along the coast and changed the course of Florida history. The evidence of just how old waterways and boating are locally goes back to an ancient canal in what is now Naples. The site was later carbon dated to roughly the years 1200 to 1400. Thats before Columbus headed to this continent, sailing the ocean blue. At 4,150 feet, the canal was almost a mile long, and cut a watery path from the Gulf of Mexico to Naples Bay. When Ponce de Leon sailed up the west coast of Florida in the 16th century, he skimmed by the land of the Calusa, who had used canoes through that canal they had built, and also through the bays and inlets. Thats how they hunted and traveled, said Lois Bolin, a Naples resident who describes herself as historian, Realtor and patriot. That mode of travel was the case for the people who followed the Calusa. The arrival of the Spanish on their ships led to the extermination of the Calusa and the disappearance of their canal before its rediscovery. By the late 19th century, Americans used boats to reach Naples and develop the region. One of their earliest tasks at the time was to build the Naples Pier into the Gulf of Mexico. They needed a place to dock, a place to unload passengers and freight. Those things needed boats and a place to dock. If it didnt float, you didnt get here, said Jim Powers, a research historian at the Southwest Florida Museum of History. It was how business developed in those days before the Tamiami Trail was completed in 1928 and the arrival of passenger rail service in 1927. It was easier to travel from New York to San Francisco in the late 19th and early 20th century than it was to travel from New York to Naples. The Transcontinental Railroad was completed in 1869 58 years before folks could reach Naples by rail. So, it was travel by boat.A detailed accountTodd Turrell, the principal of Turrell, Hall & Associates Inc, a Naples marine and environmental consulting, has written a book about Naples and the water: Naples Waterfront: Changes in Time. The book includes chapters on subjects as varied as early settlement, historical maps, commercial fishing, boat building and several others. I was really just scratching the surface, Mr. Turrell said. Early Naples developers such as Walter Haldeman and John Williams formed the Naples Town Improvement Company in 1887, kick starting the remote outpost. The original 600-foot Naples Pier was built in 1888. Early settlers and tourists needed basic services such as a general store, post office and places to stay. Naples was much like Fort Myers in those days. The Atlantic Coastline Railroad was extended to Fort Myers in 1904, 23 years before rail service finally punched down the coast to Naples. Fort Myers writer and historian Gerri Reaves, past president of the Southwest Florida Historical Society, wrote an email to Florida Weekly about boats and boating in her town. The same story holds true for Naples. The vessels brought tourists to town, took people for outings to the beaches, delivered the mail, and transported fruits and vegetables to northern markets, Ms. Reaves wrote in her email. Ms. Bolin said the early Naples developers tended to be either captains of boats or captains of industry.Smoke on the waterWhile the boats brought tourism and business, a boat was at the center of perhaps the most storied murder in Southwest Florida history. In 1910, Edgar Watson was traveling alone on one of the early powerboats in the area from his home in the Ten Thousand Islands to Ted Smallwoods Store in Chokoloskee. Mr. Watson was feared and disliked by other folks in the area, who one day were waiting for him in Chokoloskee. What happened next is the pivotal point around which author Peter Mathiessen created four novels, including one Killing Mr. Watson. As many as 20 armed men waited for Mr. Watson. The whip crack of a shot, two shots together. There is time for an echo, time for a high shriek, before the last evening of the old days in the Islands flies apart in a volley of wild fire, Mathiessen writes. On that October day when Watson putter ed up to Chokoloskee, the surrounding area was much as it had been the day that Mr. de Leon first sailed by in the 16th century. Change was coming, though. In the two decades after Mr. Watsons death, the Tamiami Trail was finished and the railroad connected Naples to points north, opening up the area to travel as never before. First, though, were the boats. All sorts. Mail boats carried letters to other Florida cities. Goods and people were ferried to what was then called Everglade and is now Everglades City. Goods and people were ferried to Caxambas on Marco Island, Chokoloskee and up the coast to Fort Myers, Water travel meanders through Southwest Florida historyCOURTESY PHOTOOld stilt fishing houses are a part of the rich waterway history of Southwest Florida.

12 MARCH 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY NANCI THEORETFlorida Weekly CorrespondentTake to the water, and the Naples and Collier County you thought you knew deliver an entirely new perspective. Secluded beaches, remote islands most of them inhabited only by resident wildlife even the opportunity to channel your inner Swamp Man on a self-captained excursion through the Everglades provide adventures no car can get you to. Plus theres less traffic and no red lights or perpetually blinking left-turn signals. Bonus for getting to work on your tan or happening upon a more sophisticated version of the Redneck Yacht Club. Of course, this being Naples, theres always the chance of discovering a new boutique or restaurant just around the bend. The Everglades/Everglades CityN 25 51.4164 W 81 23.091 Launch from the public boat ramp in Everglades City and youre already in the Glades and its famed Ten Thousand Islands, home to walking-on-water mangrove islands, long-legged wading birds, raccoons and, of course, gators. Besides the very civilized Marco Island, most of the 9,999 other islands are uninhabited. Fingers crossed: You might see a manatee or rare Florida panther. With its narrow passes cut through banks of mud and sea grass, oyster reefs and sandbars, boating the River of Grass can be tricky. In other words, its not for novices; you have to be able to read the water as shallow areas arent always marked and most boats dont have the low draft of those water-skimming airboats youll likely encounter. For full immersion, motor out to the 35,000-acre Ten Thousand Island National Wildlife Refuge, part of the largest mangrove forest in North America, which serves as prime bird rookeries and fish nurseries. Surrounding the city of Goodland with the Gulf of Mexico to the south, the refuges tangle of red, black and white mangroves create a navigable maze, offer occasional slices of beach and provide National Geographic-worthy photo opps: the rare mangrove cuckoo and black-whiskered vireo make their homes here. As many as 10,000 wading birds roost on a small island in Pumpkin Bay. Manatees seek shelter from the cold in the Faka Union Canal and sea turtles nest on the refuges coastline. The truly adventurous can even pick an island almost any island and camp overnight. WHILE YOURE THERE: If the big one g ot a way, no fear. Catches of the day are displayed on ice (as is the beer) at City Seafood, which has its own fishing fleet, market and restaurant. Nosh on a fresh blackened or fried grouper sandwich on the dock overlooking the Barron River.GoodlandN 25 55.556 81 38.9131 Come Sunday, Stans Idle Hour hosts the largest party in Southwest Florida, and you can boat right in without worry about snagging a terra firma parking spot next to motorcycles and Mercedes.

Moor at the 77-slip marina and browse specialty boutiques, art galleries and even indulge in a spa treatment. Caxambas Park provides almost instant access to the gulf and the northern Ten Thousand Islands a favorite spot for splashing dolphins.

Loop around north to Tigertail Beach.Keewaydin IslandN 26 3.403 W 81 47.0929 Reachable only by boat, Keewaydins mostly undeveloped shoreline offers secluded beachfront for romantic picnics and prime pickings for seashells. On weekends, join the party; dozens of boats anchor off the beach, creating a friendly and welcoming yacht club usually set to music. Launch from the boat ramp at Bayview Park in Naples Bay.Around the BayYou could easily spend a day trolling around Naples Bay noticing how the waterfront homes grow progressively bigger the farther south you travel from Fifth Avenue South to the fingers of land that provide prime, boat-in-your backyard opporutnities for residents of the tony Aqualane Shores and Port Royal neighborhoods. Access the gulf via Gordon Pass or shop-hop waterfront destinations on the bay.Tin CityN 26 8.4812 W 81 47.4312 Tin City at the bays northern terminus provides a handful of docks for visitors arriving by water. Once the hub of a burgeoning citys fishing industry, the 1920s destination named for the tin-roofed buildings offers a marketplace of restaurants and shops, including Bondi Surf, which has been outfitting residents and vacationers in Florida-style tropical shirts, shorts and beachwear for 35 years. Local artist Jennifer Norqual has an enviable gallery, an alfresco studio/workshop on the dock overlooking the water. For a decade, she has been creating three-dimensional dock scene wall hangings fashioned from driftwood, old stone-crab cages and roofing materials. Tin City also celebrates Naples backyard history with a display of old photos, waterfront floor mays and locals sharing their tales at the History of the Waterfront Museum.Things to do along the 25 and 26 Latitudes COURTESY PHOTOSSeashells by the seashore along Marco Island.

16 MARCH 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.comPete and Jan Hansens boat is their dream retirement home. They planned this life for years before retiring from careers at U.S. Steel in Indiana, where they met in 1993. He was a mechanic and she worked high in a crane bubble storing steel products in a warehouse. They also ran a charter-boat business off the southern end of Lake Michigan. They sold the business and their house on the lake and had their mail forwarded to a family member who would send it to places they ended up. They set out on the Great Loop, cruising through a network of rivers that brought them to Southwest Florida and back up the Atlantic Coast. They spent winters here and hurricane seasons up north. Now theyre docked at Port of the Islands Marina, part of a resort community just east of Naples, where Mr. Hansen is making improvements to their 1990 44-foot DeFever trawler. Forgoing a traditional female-gendered boat, he named it Norseman after his own Viking heritage. Meanwhile, theyre temporarily living in a condo to give their 11-year-old German shepherd, Ebony, who has hip problems, more comfortable golden years. This isnt our final destination, said Mr. Hansen, who is 60 himself, but looking forward to moving back to the boat. When they get there, the plan is to island hop in the Caribbean until who knows how long until weve had enough. For now theyre shielded from strong storms, at least. The marina sits behind the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, which makes it a perfect hurricane hole, Mr. Hansen says. Storms headed their way would disperse among all those islands before reaching the marina, which has a public boat ramp. Of its 175 wet slips (boat parking), about a third offer access to live-aboards. In Florida, thats defined as someone who stays on his boat at a slip more than five days in a row or more than 10 days in any 30-day period. Many live-aboards also draw a distinction between those who stay at one marina for long periods of time and cruisers, or transient boaters, such as the Hansens. All kindsLive-aboards, of course, are as diverse a group as live-on-lands. At downtown Fort Myerss municipal marina, one of the few in the state to offer full-time, live-aboard access throughout their docks, they get all kinds. Scott Newkirk has lived there on his 48-foot Cheoy Lee motor yacht for more than a decade. His first mate, Linda Meschke, joined him more recently. The boat is named Code Blue after the words he used to hear called out over the intercom at an emergency room in Indiana, where he was a doctor in a former life on land. One resident has been there for more than three decades. Others come and go. We have some people here in their 20s and some in their 90s, said Leif Lustig, Fort Myers Yacht Basins dockmaster. Some are retired CEOs with unlimited bank accounts. But then we have other folks who are living off Social Security check to check. It is a very eclectic mix. Rather than just a boat parking lot, its a neighborhood. The slip fees akin to rent that liveaboards pay is based on the length of the boat and is set by a marinas location and amenities offered. Key West Harbour costs $25 per foot per month for a wet slip, or $1,250 per month for a 50-foot boat, but you might pay more than twice that for a spot near the famed Duval Street. Port of the Islands charges $11 per foot per month or $9 yearly. When your backyard is waterFrom 2006 to 2013, the Hansens lived on Norseman with Ebony, docking at marinas all over Florida and up north. The boat weighs 44,000 pounds dry, before being filled with 300 gallons of freshwater and 920 gallons of diesel, to run two Ford Lehman 135 horsepower engines. It draws 4 feet, 7 inches. Although technology on the ship includes radar, navigation software and other communications equipment, Mr. Hansen charts their course on paper as well. They used roughly 50 gallons of diesel per day cruising at 8 knots, or Living aboardPort of the Islands is home ... for now EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYPete and Jan Hansen are a long way from U.S. Steel in Indiana, where they first met.

MARCH 2014 17 around 10 mph, for between 70 and 100 miles. Thats one of the drawbacks to boats: the expense to maintain them is considerable. To that end, the Hansens rely on pensions, and earn extra money working at the ship store while they stay at the marina. Mr. Hanson also volunteers at Rookery Bay Preserve on his days off. While cruising, theyd stay in some places a week or less, and never more than a month or two. Unmitigated movement is one of the best things about the cruiser lifestyle, Mrs. Hansen said. You dont ever have to have a destination, she said. Being underway, thats the whole thing, her husband said. Thats what its about to me. Going places youve never gone before. They also have many of the creature comforts of land dwellers. There are two staterooms, one with a queen bed, and two bathrooms with showers; satellite television; and a washer-dryer. But it all fits into relatively tight spaces. Theyre conservative with their electric power supply and fresh water, and theres precious little storage space. That forced them to lighten their load, Mrs. Hansen points out. Now, they feel less burdened by possessions they dont have room for, anyway. Its freedom; you have total freedom, Mr. Hansen said. When you get tired looking at the same scenery, you pull up your line and move on to something else. But that freedom is tempered by the demands and costs of owning and caring for a boat. Living aboard takes constant preparedness and self-reliance. Theres really never a day that goes by you cant find some type of work to do on a boat, Mr. Hansen said. It also requires respect for Mother Nature. On one trip in heavy seas they had to pretty much surf into Cape Fear inlet, he recalls. That was a hairy experience. It humbles you, his wife said. More often though, they enjoy the beauty and solitude of life on a boat, of mornings and evenings on the deck listening to nature, or trying a new restaurant at a marina where they stayed. One of Mr. Hansens favorite spots is Little Shark River. Its a place in the Ten Thousand Islands on the way to the Keys. Theres a spot where youre out of cell phone range and a canopy of formerly unseen stars appears in the darkness. Theres no background lights so it feels like youre looking up at the stars in a planetarium, he said. The Jansens like the mystery and excitement of going places youve never gone before.

18 MARCH 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.comWater covers more than a quarter of Lee and Collier counties, a 688-square mile playground for about 65,000 registered boats of a seemingly endless variety. Their owners are just as diverse. And as spring break gets underway for many students and tourist season peaks, it amounts to a melting pot of boaters with various levels of experience, many of whom are often unfamiliar with equipment, regulations and the waterways, wrote Naples Police Department Marine Unit Officer Jeffrey Perry in an email. The Naples unit is part of a force led by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the states boating safety agency. That includes FWCs own staff in local areas, sheriffs deputies, city policemen, the U.S. Coast Guard and others. The agencies patrol water under their own jurisdictions, but they also work closely together. We deal with a little bit of anything and everything, said Cpl. Kendall Wiseley of the Lee County Sheriffs Office Marine Unit. For instance, speeders endanger manatees in areas marked to protect the marine mammals. The world-famous sea cows tend to travel out to boating channels as the weather warms, making them more vulnerable to being injured or killed by propellers. Like their land-based counterparts, marine cops enforce numerous violations. But unlike highway officers, marine officers dont need probable cause to tie up to a boat. They can pull a boater over to the side of a channel for whatever reason they see fit say, to check for proper safety equipment. There must be a lifejacket for every person aboard. Theres no excuse because theyre (lifejackets) very comfortable, and there are many choices, said Gary Morse, FWC spokesman. The waterway is in motion with tides, winds and currents, adding an extra challenge to boat-traffic stops. Marine units tend to be made up of former road officers who love being on a boat, said Collier County Sheriffs Office Sgt. Dave Bruening. Thats one thing thats really important about being in the marine unit you have to have a passion for being on the water, said Officer Perry, who spends up to eight hours of a 10-plushour shift on a boat. They might be on a search-and-rescue mission at midnight, breaking up a fight on the beach, rescuing a leatherback turtle entangled in a crab trap or providing security for island businesses and residences after a hurricane. They could be responding to a burglary they see from a canal, or providing first aid as they wait for EMS to arrive on an accident scene. Its not uncommon for kayakers to get caught in an outgoing tide in the Ten Thousand Islands and call for help. All of a sudden, nighttimes coming, and theyre working against an outgoing tide and they cant get back to the dock, Sgt. Bruening said. U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Todd Walter, based out of Fort Myers Beach, recalls a call from a woman whose husband went missing on a fishing trip. He was out of cell-phone range, and since the boat had been hit by lightning, the electronics were cooked. But the womans husband had a float plan: He let her know where he was going so officers knew where to pick him up. Thats always a good idea, as is having a lookout aboard an extra set of eyes scoping out potential hazards. Some boaters have a tendency to navigate outside of channel markers where too shallow water may pose a threat. Others cut through idle and slow zones quickly, leaving smaller boats off to the side rocking or even capsized in their wake. People are responsible for their own wakes, Officer Perry said. As the sun dropped toward the horizon on a Sunday evening, Officer Perry neared the end of his patrol, watching a long line of big and small boats cruise off the Gulf of Mexico and from other areas toward Gordon Pass near downtown Naples. Others times, its quiet on the water. On a foggy weekend morning in late February, Cpl. Wiseley and volunteer Dave Sully with the LCSO went on patrol out of Cape Harbour Marina. Only two yellow kayaks cruised along the shoreline. Soon the sun burned off the fog to reveal a postcard-perfect day. You come back in the afternoon and it can look like a parking lot in here, Cpl. Wiseley said. But before that, there was a stop for lunch at The Waterfront Restaurant and Marina in St. James City, where a group of officers enjoyed a Southern specialty, sweet tea-marinated fried chicken.

BOATUSSpecial to Florida WeeklyWith the spring boat shows winding down across America, Boat Owners Association of The United States says buyers are still in the drivers seat when it comes to buying a boat. And if your qualifications add up including having good credit getting a boat loan should not be difficult. If you have been holding back for the past few years, now may be the time to pull the trigger, said Charm Addington, BoatUS vice president of finance. Boat loan rates are still low. While there isnt the same level of preowned boat inventory as there was at this time last year, there are still plenty of used boats for sale. For those looking at a new boat purchase, manufacturers have increased production and will need to move inventory, Ms. Addington added. We think dealers will be interested in making some deals this winter boat season, and combined with continued low interest rates, the winter boat buying season bodes well for buyers. To get a boat loan, Ms. Addington said boat lenders usually require two years of federal tax returns, a paycheck stub and can also require proof of liquid assets funds that can be easily converted into cash for the down payment. The heady days of no documentation loans are largely a thing of the past. Here are two other boat-loan tips from BoatUS: Unlike getting a home loan, getting a boat loan doesnt require a preapproval. However, before you head to the boat show, some boat lenders will offer preapprovals that include rate offers just ensure the rate is verified, in writing, and not a teaser rate. Depending on the buyers credit score and down payment, some banks may be able to offer a rate thats lower than what is initially offered, so be sure to ask your lender. Unlike most lenders, BoatUS Boat Loans posts current loan rates available at The rate and terms on our website are what we can offer boat buyers today, said Addington. We hope that gives peace of mind knowing the costs up front. Ready to hit the show? Here are the springs remaining boat shows scheduled in Florida: Bonita Springs Boat Show March 6-9 Naples/Fort Myers Greyhound Track Find a range of boat makes and models up to 35 feet.

22 MARCH 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLY DISCOVERBOATING.COMSpecial to Florida WeeklyIts easy to keep your outboard in tip-top shape, even if youre not a mechanic. A little TLC and preventive boat motor maintenance facilitates safe boating and can keep your motor running well and reliable for years to come.After every trip After every outing, flush out the engine. This doesnt just apply to salt water adventures, but to fresh water outings as well. Buy a set of rabbit ears: two flexible rubber seals connected with a metal clamp. Slip the apparatus onto the lower unit where the water is picked up and attach a garden hose. Start up the engine and let the water pump do the rest. (Practice safe boating and remember to stay clear of the prop and make sure no one tries to shift the motor into gear.) While youre flushing the motor, check the water pump to make sure it has good water flow. Carefully put your finger through the stream of water. It may be warm, but it shouldnt be hot. If the output is not strong, you may have some debris stuck in the outflow tube. Immediately shut down the engine to prevent overheating and damage. Insert a small piece of wire into the flow tube and work it back and forth. Start the engine again and check the output. If that doesnt solve the problem, you may need a new water pump. After flushing the engine, disconnect the fuel line and allow the engine to burn all the fuel in the carburetor. Once youve finished the flushing and run the engine out of fuel, be sure to turn off the key and, if you have a battery switch, turn it off. Take the engine cowling off and check for fuel or water leaks. If you find leaks, consult your boating mechanic. Wipe everything down and spray with an anti-corrosive such as WD 40 or Quick-lube. Be sure to lubricate all the moving parts such as the shift and throttle cables, carburetor valves, etc. Replace the cowling and wipe it down. Keep a canvas or plastic cover on the engine between trips. Always use fresh fuel. At the end of the season, boat motor maintenance should include draining your tanks and taking the fuel to the proper recycling authority.Regular maintenance Periodically check the fuel line for cracks and worn spots. Make sure the fuel primer bulb is not cracked and is pliable. Make sure the fuel-line fittings seat properly and dont leak. Check the clamps on the fuel line for rust or corrosion. Check the fuel tanks for damage and corrosion. Check the tank vent to make sure it aspirates properly. Check regularly for water in the fuel.

24 MARCH 2014 BOATUSSpecial to Florida WeeklyIf you havent freed up time to fix the important things on your recreational boat, such as having a fully working VHF radio on board, do it. If you have a basic VHF, checking the connections for corrosion, inspecting the antenna and doing a simple radio check may be all that it takes. But if you have a newer Digital Selective Calling VHF, this is be the time to ensure its life-saving, onebutton mayday feature is fully working. This allows anyone on the boat to simply press a button that gives rescuers near pinpoint location and identification information, greatly speeding rescue times. However, the DSC functions on new radios only work if a Maritime Mobile Service Identity number has been entered into the radio. Further, the U.S. Coast Guard Reports that approximately 80 percent of the one-button distress calls from DSC VHF radios it gets each year do not contain vessel position information, meaning that rescuers cannot effectively respond. Boaters can take two simple steps to make sure their DSC radio will provide rescuers with the information they need, according to the Boat Owners Association of The United States: Connect the DSC-VHF to the GPS/ chartplotter. While some of the newest, handheld DSC VHF radios have GPS built in, most fixed-mount DSC VHF radios must be connected to an external chartplotter in order to broadcast location information. This single, critical wired connection increases your margin of safety a thousand times over by allowing rescuers to find you quickly. While there have been challenges with a uniform, industry-wide plug-in connector to make it easy for do-it-yourselfers, having both the radio and chartplotter of the same brand and each manufactured within several years of each other makes it easier. Taking the time to open up both operating manuals is also a good first step you likely wont need to know how to read a wiring diagram as instructions are in plain text. Most electronics manufacturers also have customer support phone lines ready to help. And if youre still having trouble? Get a professional electronics installer to do the job. After all, arent your familys lives worth a relatively small $150 service fee to have a pro do it right? To find one near you, ask at your local marine electronics retailer, marina or go online at www.nmea. org/content/nmeatrained/nmeatrained. asp. Get a free Maritime Mobile Service Identity number that identifies your boat. The MMSI number is a bit like a phone number for your boat. Having one helps verify an emergency, identifies your boat to rescuers, and cuts down on the instances of false alarms, ensuring that critical rescue resources will be available when you need them. BoatUS offers MMSI numbers for free at, along with an easy-to-download tutorial on DSC VHF radios and how this drastically improved technology is saving lives as a part of the U.S. Coast Guards Rescue 21 System.

26 MARCH 2014 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY SEA TOW FOUNDATIONSpecial to Florida WeeklyFires are among the more dangerous yet preventable accidents that can occur onboard a boat. For that reason, the nonprofit Sea Tow Foundation, in conjunction with marine assistance provider Sea Tow Services, offers boaters these important fire prevention tips. Fast action combined with a cool head is critical in fighting boat fires, as they can spread rapidly. Following these procedures not only can help boaters prevent a fire, or contain it if one breaks out, but also could help them save lives. Ensure you have the proper size and type of marine fire extinguishers on board. Depending on the size of your boat, you may need more than one fire extinguisher. The U.S. Coast Guard has this information in its Federal Requirements brochure, which is available online at html. Mount the fire extinguishers in readily accessible locations so that you can get to them in an emergency. Inspect your fire extinguishers regularly to make sure they are fully charged and have not expired. If you have a fixed firefighting system, have it inspected and/ or serviced according to manufacturer recommendations or at least annually. Before fueling, have all passengers leave the boat and shut off all flames (stoves, ovens, grills, etc.). Close all windows, doors and openings to prevent fumes from entering the boat. While fueling, keep the nozzle in contact with the tank to prevent sparks and do not overfill the tank, so the fuel has room to expand. Wipe up any spills and dispose of the rags. Never smoke while fueling. After fueling, open all the windows, doors and openings and run the exhaust blower for four minutes. Before starting the engine, perform a sniff test of the bilge and engine compartment. If you smell gas, continue to use the blower until all of the fumes are gone. To prevent electrical issues, frequently inspect the electrical connections. Also, inspect any shore power connection lines that you may be using before plugging them into your boat. If any wires are frayed or you see sparks, immediately shut off the power source and get the issue repaired before using it again. Be cautious when using heaters in enclosed spaces, especially when unattended. If a fire does happen to break out on board: Make sure that everyone on your boat is wearing a life jacket in case they have to jump overboard. If possible, position the boat so that the fire is downwind and have all passengers move upwind, away from the fire Never use water on a gasoline, oil, or grease fire as it may cause the fire to spread. Additionally, water should not be used on electrical fires due to risk of electrical shock Get your fire extinguisher ready to use. Use the PASS method: pull pin, aim at the base of the fire, squeeze handle, sweep from side to side. Call for help on your VHF radio or cell phone. Prepare to abandon ship. An article on the Dangers of Fire on a Boat also can be found on the Sea Tow Foundations website at www. asp?item=fireonboat. .Fight fire with knowledge aboard boats COURTESY PHOTORegular inspection of electrical wiring in the engine compartment is one way to prevent boat fires.
