A collection drive at the repository is set for 1-4 p.m. Saturday, May 24. The center is housed in the former guesthouse on the grounds of Historic Palm Cottage. Anyone who donates a collectable, photograph or document related to early Naples on May 24 can stay and tour the cottage and adjacent Norris Gardens for free (regular admission, $10). Thousands of items of significance already are in the societys digital repository, much of which can be viewed using two desktop computer stations in the archival viewing center. Getting the repository ready to showcase meant using archival guidelines endorsed by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

And I say that as a man. The fact is, women really arent from Venus, and men really arent from Mars, as John Gray suggested in his best-selling 1992 book, Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. He was wrong, especially about women who come from the United States of America, not some other planet. In order to understand who we are now and where we came from, lets just start with George Carlin, the late comedian. Men are from earth, women are from earth. Deal with it, he said. Right. If there are differences in perception and behavior based on our sex based on our chromosomal architecture combined with the cultural imperatives programmed into each sex by preachers, teachers, parents and advertisers they appear to be outweighed by the similarities in our common humanity. Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? asks Shakespeare in The Merchant of Venice, a play that is now 414 years old. Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? He might have used Jew as a euphemism for Woman, especially since women, like Jews, have been blamed for all kinds of maladies they didnt cause. The fact is, humans (even human Americans), can be rational, intuitive, whimsical, mystical, empirical or superstitious. They can be courageous or cowardly, generous or greedy, narcissistic or considerate, callous or compassionate, cruel or kind. They can be good parents or bad, good bosses or bad. That includes both men and women, not to mention dogs, who seem to think theyre human, too, especially at supper time. And its the basis of the notion that humans should be treated equally under the law. Such a notion boils down to the most glorious American paradox: Each of us deserves and requires equal opportunities and equal rights under the law, even though every single one of us is distinctively different. We have different talents, differing needs and widely diverging ambitions. As it turns out, equal rights are much like the Sangre De Cristo mountains near my familys old ranch they look so close you could lean over and kiss them. But they remain well out of reach, way down on the Colorado-New Mexico border about 80 miles away. I was reminded of all this the other day while reading about Jill Abramson, the suddenly former executive editor at The New York Times. One minute she was working in the big newsroom there, where men and women sit in little cubicles or at exposed desks and look worried or ambitious or satisfied, and the next minute Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the papers publisher, had fired her. I can imagine Mr. Sulzburger pacing up and down in his big office not far off of Times Square on Eighth Avenue, and muttering to himself: Women: You cant live with em, and you cant live without em. Just like the sexist males of old. Meanwhile theres Ms. Abramson in her own big office, dumping the photographs on her desk into a cardboard box shortly before being escorted out of the building sans speech, sans farewell tears, sans even You miserable male bastards! And in that troubled moment I imagine her recalling Mae West: When a man gives his opinion, hes a man. When a women gives her opinion, shes a bitch. What really happened, and was this just another case of mistreatment? Was it the same thing that happens every single day among the rich or the middle class or the poor, to the educated and the less educated, in the city or in the country, on the left or on the right, to Democrats or to Republicans alike? News reports differ, but it seems to come down to this: Either she was paid less than her male predecessor and seen as too pushy when she asked why, and too bossy anyway (in other words, she was seen as a bitch); or, she was a bad manager who alienated her peers and her reporters by behaving with exceptional rudeness to them, and displaying an alienating authoritarianism in the newsroom. And coincidentally she was paid as much or more than the guy who preceded her, the fairly beloved Bill Keller. You probably care about the answer almost as much as I do. This is a wealthy, immensely successful woman who was celebrated up the long ladder of her brilliant career from its beginnings as a reporter for The Wall Street Journal to its momentary and not necessarily final curtain at The New York Times. Shell be fine. She always was fine. Everybody around her will be fine. What I do care about, however, is that women in general my American women, my friends and fellow citizens, my wife and my sister and my cousins and nieces are still undeniably less than equal in the workplace culture of the 21st century, in the United States. There is no excuse for it, no good reason for it, nothing that suggests we should or even need to continue with this tradition except greed. You can find these statistics many places, but I took them from, which analyzes the experiences of women who work. In median annual earnings for full-time workers in 2012, women earned 76.5 percent of men. In median weekly earnings for full-time workers in 2013, women earned 82.1 percent as much as men. So, heres $10 for you, pal, because youre an American man. And heres $8 for you, maam, because youre an American woman but hey, you come from Venus. Thats what were still saying, and doing, regardless of what happened to Jill Abramson. Doesnt that beat all? d w m w k roger

I live in East Naples and my excitement at this is growing for a number of reasons, among them: Because a big idea is becoming a reality. Because the concept takes advantage of the amazing asset we have in Naples Bay and the Gordon River (above and below the bridges). Because it will be a place dedicated to the development of an urban, nature-centered, walkable and bikeable lifestyle. Because it is an example of good public/private development. Because it moves the center of gravity in Downtown Naples to the east, toward the most logical next step in developing a regional city center in East Naples. I know that this redevelopment has taken a very long time to get to this point, as has the effort to clean up and develop the property in the Bayshore Gateway Triangle CRA to the south and east. The exciting part is that as this neighborhood comes into being, we can take encouragement that, working together, we can create a spectacular part of the Naples community on the east side of Naples Bay as well. So what are some of the big ideas we could be focusing on? Here are a few: What about developing an integrated public pay-as-you-go water transportation system? We could call it South West Inland Marine, Collier Area Transportation System SWIM CATS. There could be a main SWIM CAT line from Marco Island through Naples Bay to Bayfront, with stops at Hamilton Harbor and Naples City Dock, and subsidiary boat loops to service local areas such as Marco Island / Henderson Creek / Isles of Capri / Goodland; Bayshore Drive / Haldeman Creek / Hamilton Harbor / Port Royal / Royal Harbor; Naples Dock / Third Street / Bayfront / Greenway / Naples Airport, etc. Local land shuttles (golf carts, perhaps) could ferry people to the SWIM CAT stops. Development of the Davis Boulevard / East Trail / Airport / Government Center Gateway Triangle into a highly modern new East Naples Bay City with such features as mixeduse high-rise buildings, bike paths and moving sidewalk, below level parking, a cutting-edge energy system, pedestrian connections to all public transport systems including CAT, SWIM CAT, Naples Airport and Old Naples shopping and beaches. Development of the Bayshore Drive area from U.S. 41 to Naples Botanical Garden into an urban boutique arts, entertainment, shopping, marine and in-town residential community (I like to call it Naples Bay Village). This is well on its way as significant new development has already happened in this formerly blight-ridden neighborhood on Naples Bay, but a true focus by our business and county government would drive it faster and also further encourage and integrate the other big ideas outlined above. Mike Sherman Wheelering and dealing at the FCCMichael Powell is the son of Gen. Colin Powell. The elder Powell knows a thing or two about war. He famously presented the case for invading Iraq to the United Nations, on Feb. 5, 2003, based on faulty evidence of weapons of mass destruction. He calls that speech a painful blot on his record. So it is especially surprising when his son threatens World War III on the Obama administration. Michael Powell is the president of the NCTA, the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, which is the cable industrys largest lobbying group. He is also the former chairperson of the FCC, the Federal Communications Commission. His target: net neutrality. The battleground is in Washington, D.C., inside the FCCs nondescript headquarters. The largest Internet service providers companies like Comcast, Time Warner Cable, AT&T and Verizon are joining forces to kill net neutrality. Millions of citizens, along with thousands of organizations, companies, artists and investors, are trying to save it. What is net neutrality? Its the fundamental notion that anyone on the Web can reach anyone else, that users can just as easily access a small website launched in a garage as they can access major Internet portals like Google or Yahoo. Net neutrality is the Internets protection against discrimination. So why would these giant Internet Service Providers want to eliminate such a good thing? Greed. The largest ISPs make massive profits already. But if they are allowed to create a multitiered Internet, with some content providers paying extra to have their websites or Web applications load faster, then they can squeeze out extra profit. Remember, the users are already paying for Internet access. Now companies like Comcast want to charge people at the other end of the Internet connection, raking in billions of dollars from both the Internet user and the Internet content provider. If net neutrality is eliminated, then large, established content providers with ample cash will buy access to a privileged fast lane on the Internet. Smaller websites and new applications will not have the same access, and will be stuck in the slow lane. The era of lean start-ups driving innovation will come screeching to a halt. Dont look for any more high-tech companies founded in dorm rooms. Those sites will take longer to load than those offered by the big companies. The FCC is a classic captured regulatory agency, featuring a revolving door with the very industries it is supposed to regulate. The current FCC chairperson, appointed by President Barack Obama, is Tom Wheeler, who was formerly the head of the NCTA and later ran the wireless industrys lobbying organization. Tom Wheeler and Michael Powell have basically switched places with one another. Sadly, they both do the same job, representing the interests of big business. It was under Michael Powell that the broadband business was labeled an information service by the FCC, limiting the extent that the industry could be regulated. It is what he called in his recent keynote speech at the NCTA annual meeting, a light regulatory touch. Powells soaring rhetoric there fails the laugh test, though. Broadband service in the United States, on average, is far slower than many other countries, and far more costly. Activists want the FCC to reclassify broadband as a public utility, like telephone service. Imagine if the phone company were allowed to downgrade the quality of your phone call, because you didnt pay for the premium service. Or imagine if the water coming out of your tap was less clean than water at a neighbors house, because they pay for the premium water. These utilities are regulated. People get the same service, without discrimination. Last January, a federal court threw out the FCCs Open Internet rules, saying that the FCC has the authority to regulate the Internet, but that its rules didnt make sense. By properly classifying Internet service as a utility, the FCC can legally and sensibly regulate it. Close to 2 million people have weighed in already in favor of net neutrality, calling for the reclassification of Internet service. It is that act that Michael Powell said would provoke World War III. Michael Powell may threaten a policy war, but he should be careful what he wishes for. As chair of the FCC back in 2003, he led an effort to allow more media consolidation, which provoked a massive public backlash. Eventually, the lax rules he proposed were defeated. Congress learned a lesson with the protests against Internet regulatory laws called SOPA and PIPA. The outcry was global and unrelenting. Now the focus is on the FCC. Tom Wheeler has a chance to listen to millions of concerned citizens, and to correct the errors of the past. Or he can do the bidding of Michael Powell and his army of lobbyists. If he does that, he, too, will have an enduring blot on his record. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

She handles travel arrangements and builds itineraries for journalists writing about vacation experiences here, and she keeps up with the latest news about what hotels, attractions, restaurants and retail outlets have to offer visitors. Its a big job, and one she tackles with ferver and enthusiasm. Except for being born out of state because of her fathers United States Air Force postings, Ms. Modys can be counted as a third-generation Floridian with a proud Scottish heritage. Her parents are native Floridians, both born in Miami. A nomadic childhood no doubt contributed to her lack of fear of new places and to her curiosity and desire to communicate about them. She was born in Lake Charles, La., and while growing up moved with her family all over the country, from Alabama to Michigan, California, Georgia, Florida, Nebraska and Hawaii. She earned a bachelors degree in communications from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where she worked as a radio DJ. She was a news intern and then a news assistant and reporter at KITV, the ABC-TV affiliate in Honolulu. After graduation, she moved to Orlando and worked for several years in TV, then in marketing and interactive technology before returning to TV as the senior producer and a correspondent for The Computer Chronicles, a long-running PBS series about technology. She had her first international adventures in her 20s and 30s, visiting Machu Pichu, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania and the Greek Islands. Her knowledge of technology and the Internet, as well as her travel experience, was key to her being hired as public relations manager for Cunard Line when the company relocated its headquarters to Miami in the late 1990s. She met her husband, Rob, in 1995 in Key West during a tropical storm on Friday, Oct. 13. Our first look can be described as a lightning bolt moment, she says, adding they were married two years later and will always consider Friday the 13th a lucky day. Rob is a charter fishing captain and the owner of SoulMate Charters. In addition to working with Cunard bobHARDEN Talking points with JoNell ModysMentors: My parents As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A reporter.

The air is not yet so thick and steamy it clogs your lungs. It will be. August is out there, threatening, with its war drum and cannon of massive marching storms. Winter has fled. Wildflowers know it and are celebrating with a farewell jamboree, twirling their tickseed yellow, hibiscus red and blue flag iris purple petal skirts at the dry old man. There will be no more winter breath until Halloween is in sight. The swamp knows it, and there is riotous, wild-life celebration. Spring has taken up residence in the marsh. Not too cold, not too hot, not too wet, not too dry its just right. Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary even provides a meandering boardwalk as your path to Oz only its better than Oz because there are no evil flying monkeys (unless mosquitoes count). The old-growth cypress forest, the largest remaining in North America, has the storybook look of a place that might be graced by fairies and trolls. If you listen with your heart, you might yet hear the quiet footfalls of natives who walked here. R.J.

WILEY / COURTESY PHOTOCorkscrew Swamp Sanctuary comprises nearly 13,000 acres of land that has been under the ownership and protection of the National Audubon Society since 1954. Its mission: To conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earths biological diversity. For visitors, a 2.25-mile boardwalk meanders through pine flatwoods, wet prairie, around a marsh and finally into the largest old growth bald cypress forest in North America. The Blair Audubon Center and tearoom caf are also on site. The swamp is home to a wide diversity of birds, ranging from the iconic wood stork and majestic bald eagle to the tiny, soft-spoken blue-gray gnatcatcher and the vociferous black-bellied whistling duck. Mammals of the swamp include ambling raccoons and armadillos, playful river otters and white-tailed deer, striped skunks, cottontail rabbits, black bears and red and gray foxes. Reptilian and amphibian residents abound as well. Before the summer rainy season begins, as temperatures warm up and lake water evaporates, a phenomenon occurs that creates spectacular wildlife viewing at the sanctuarys lettuce lakes. Roseate spoonbills, wood storks, great and snowy egrets, heron and ibis can often be seen competing for food in lakes that are drying up. As the lakes get smaller, a higher concentration of fish attracts wildlife to feed. Alligators, turtles and raccoons can also be seen gathering in the lakes to feed. The spring scene is also one of just-hatched, new life. Pure white baby anhingas, resembling swans, are getting ready to launch. Other young waders are learning to fly and feed themselves: fledging wood storks, herons, egrets and swallowtail kites. Sightings also include barred owl chicks, young gators and frisky adult gators heading into their mating season with a show of scampering and bellowing. Entrance to the sanctuary is at 375 Sanctuary Road W. in Naples, about 15 miles east of I-75 off Immokalee Road. Year-round hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily, with the admission at 4:30 p.m. The entrance fee, which covers two consecutive days of admission, is $12 for adults, $6 for National Audubon Society members and fulltime college students with ID, $4 for ages 6-18, and free for ages 5 and younger For more information, call 3489151 or visit About the sanctuary The great egret is the largest egret in South Florida, identifiable by its long black legs and yellow beak.

FREE In-Home FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 WEEK OF MAY 22-28, 2014 The opening of the archival viewing center is the result of years of strategic planning and significant laborious work, according to Elaine Reed, president and CEO of the society. The process involved unearthing and identifying our own archived collections, which had been sitting safely in storage, but undocumented. The process started with the purchase of a proprietary software system that is specifically designed and used by libraries and museums to capture and document historic data. The next step involved development of a collection management plan. The final steps included hiring Ms. Alam and redesigning the Historic Palm Cottage guesthouse to accommodate the permanent archival viewing center. The final and ongoing step involves procurement of public donations, digitization and recording, education and public viewing participation. Items of unique interest in the centers repository include a crystal bell originally used at The Naples Hotel; a scrapbook about Charles Lindberg from the 1920s, donated by Frank Tenney, a former NHS president; a letter requesting a Naples mink from Marshall Field; and many historic photos and newspaper clippings of hurricanes and development progress. All artwork and furnishings on display in Historic Palm Cottage are also included in the repository. Local residents and visitors with an interest in nostalgia are going to love using the center each time they visit the cottage because it will continue to grow and is simple to navigate, Ms. Alam says. Historic Palm Cottage is at 137 12th Ave. S., one block east of the Naples Pier. In addition to the collection drive on May 24, archival donations are accepted by appointment throughout the year. For more information, call Ms. Alam at 261-8164. HISTORYFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOThe original guesthouse at Historic Palm Cottage now houses the Naples Historical Societys archival viewing center.

(and the worlds fifth-richest person, according to Forbes magazine) is a big basketball fan and was reported in April to have an interest in purchasing the Los Angeles Clippers NBA team. An Ellison associate told The Wall Street Journal, for example, that Ellison has basketball courts on at least two of his yachts and shoots hoops for relaxation on the open water. To retrieve his errant shots that go overboard, Mr. Ellison hires a ballboy in a powerboat to trail the yachts. Latest religious messages Speaking on a popular Christian Internet podcast in March (reported by Houstons KHOU-TV), Pastor John Benefiel of Oklahoma Citys Church on the Rock described how, in a 2007 blessing, he might have prayed too hard. He was attempting to help droughtstricken Texas and Oklahoma by using a specific prayer message (the Baal divorce decree), but that inadvertently resulted, he said, in every lake in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri rising above flood stage, causing thousands of people to lose their homes and 22 to lose their lives. In his March 23 sermon (according to the Huffington Post), Phoenix, Ariz., pastor Steven Anderson of the Faithful World Baptist Church explained in detail why women in the congregation must refrain from speaking during services. Citing 1 Timothy 2:11 and 1 Corinthians 14, Anderson said the woman should learn only in silence. Now obviously, before the service begins, he conceded, theres chatting and talking going on thats perfectly legitimate. (And when) we all sing praises to God, of course the ladies should also lift up their voices. But when its learning time, its silence time (for females). (Also, he said, since the comment Amen means Thats true, it would be inappropriate for females to utter it.) At one Hindu temple in Indias Kerala state, the religious gift of choice both for offerings to the deity Lord Muruga and for distribution from the deity to devotees is the chocolate candy bar, which visitors bring in cartons, according to a March report by the Press Trust of India. (Muruga is the son of the lord Shiva and was originally worshiped as a child, leading to speculation that he would respond to chocolates.) After convicted murderer Loren Larson Jr. filed a federal lawsuit in Anchorage, Alaska, claiming that his prison wristband ID defil(ed) him religiously because it was a mark of the devil, a Goose Creek Correctional Center official lectured him on the Book of Revelation. Actually, wrote the official, we would be commanding the mark of the beast only if we ordered the ID either in the right hand or in the forehead, and neither is required by current wristband policy. (Hence, the double-murderer, serving 198 years, still qualifies to avoid hell.) An unnamed British inmate published a letter in a prison newspaper in April alleging continuous religious discrimination against him by guards and officials. The man claims he is a practicing Jedi (and of course cannot reveal his name because he fears retaliation from the dark side) and complains that Jedi-ism, though officially recognized as a religion in the UK (the seventh-most popular, according to the census, with more than 175,000 adherents) is nonetheless unacknowledged by the National Offender Management Service. Inhumane societyDenmarks Copenhagen Zoo aroused worldwide ire in February when it slaughtered and publicly dismembered a healthy young giraffe (Marius) in order to feed a hungry lion. Then, in March, the Zoo killed four healthy lions to make room for a new male. By contrast, reported in April, Denmark has no law against humans having sex with animals (unless it amounts to torture). Animal rights campaigners have recently expressed alarm that Denmark will become a destination for animal sex tourism attracting horny zoophiles from around the world. Questionable judgments Manhattans New York Sushi Ko is only the most recent sophisticated restaurant to feature creative dishes made with Hormel Spam, and foodies and hipsters in fashionable neighborhoods have flocked to the foods. Spam is a well-known delicacy in Hawaii, and the New York facilities offer the islands musubi (fried Spam, rice, seaweed) and other Spam fried rice bowls with seared ahi and flourishes of fresh pineapple, according to an April report on Sushi Kos chef playfully acknowledges that his contents are fresh fresh from the can and sourced locally from the nearest bodega. O Canada! Skylar Murphy, 18, happened to show up at Albertas Edmonton International Airport in September 2013 with a black-powder-loaded pipe bomb in his carry-on, ready to board an international flight. Agents confiscated the bomb but allowed Mr. Murphy to continue on his trip, and in fact police were not notified, nor were possible terrorism ties examined, until four days later. (Canadas version of the Transportation Security Administration is not allowed to apprehend or detain passengers.) In December, the harsh hammer of justice finally slammed down on Mr. Murphy. He was fined $100 and sentenced to a year of probation. Britains most-tattooed man (the former Mathew Whelan, 34, now King of Ink Land Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite), whose body is 90-percent inkcovered, finally acknowledged in March that he needed to undergo laser removal to clear up his skin. However, Body Art, as he is known, then explained that he was spending the equivalent of about $10,000 on removal just so he could start over with new tattoos.

Bay Dr. Pediatric and Adult Dermatology Cosmetic RejuvenationWelcome...Jennifer Rice, PA-CBoard Certi ed Physician Assistant HEALTHY LIVINGNCH celebrates its nursing staffThis has been a banner year for NCH nurses. Those with specialty certification have increased from 6 percent to 23 percent of our staff, and RNs with a bachelors degree or higher from 15 percent to 40 percent over the past four years. Our nurses career ladder program, designed to enhance the quality of care, improve outcomes, reward excellence and promote nursing satisfaction, is thriving in its third year with an increase in participation of 40 percent. In terms of quality, our metrics continue in the right direction regarding falls, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, central line infections and pressure sores. Nursing research, which was non-existent four years ago, now has seven studies either in progress or completed. And our nurses, when anonymously surveyed, report an increasing confidence in our quality. When it comes to hospital quality, there is no more expert assessor than our nurses, so this progress is heartening. We are also growing into shared decision-making, an innovative process to engage all nurses, from bedside to boardroom, to contribute collaboratively to ownership of nursing practice, standards and quality of care. Empowering colleagues is the cornerstone of equity, teamwork, accountability and autonomy. Shared decision making is based on evidence analysis, clearly defined objectives, effective measurement and evaluation of outcomes. The ASPIRE Achieving, Success, Professionalism, Integrity, Rewarding, Excellence program is another that aims to enhance the quality of care, improve patient o utcomes, reward excellence and promote nursing satisfaction. The 131 NCH nurses in this clinical career ladder program possess intellectual curiosity, demonstrate life-long learning and receive financial rewards at the upper levels. Our observance of National Nurses Week culminated with an awards ceremony at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club (see photos on page A23). Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Here is some unsettling news: One out of two Americans will become mentally ill at some point in their lives. And roughly one in four suffer now from mental illness or as Jay Glynn puts it, they meet the diagnostic criteria for mental illnesses, and those include mental depression and anxiety. And yet resources, funding, and the warm consideration so often extended to those with physical ailments such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes or the flu are often not as forthcoming for the mentally ill, says Mr. Glynn, the new strategic planner for the Florida Council for Community Mental Health, with 70 chapters in the Sunshine State. He is also CEO of Charlotte Behavioral Health Care. Mr. Glynns comments echo those of other leaders along the southwest coast, including Scott Burgess, CEO at the David Lawrence Center in Naples; Brenda Iliff, CEO at the Hazelden addiction treatment center (part of the Betty Ford Foundation) in Naples; and Kevin Lewis, the CEO at SalusCare in Lee County. In conversation this May, which marks Mental Health Awareness Month, each of these men and women notes a single revealing statistic: Florida ranks 48 out of 52 (the 50 states plus Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia) in per capita resources devoted to mental health care. Nationally, its $120 per person, per year, for mental health care, explains Mr. Lewis. But our per capita funding is just $40. By spending less on mental health care, we end up spending a great deal more, he adds because often those left untreated and ignored, including many with addictions or substance abuse problems who cant fix those until they can recover from a mental illness, end up in the justice system, which is ill equipped to handle mental illness and its cousin, addiction. This happens in part because of the continuing stigma of mental health issues, agrees Ms. Iliff at Hazelden. Everyone goes through periods that are not fully diagnosable, and often they say, I should be able to handle this, I was educated right, or raised right, or whatever. But addictions cannot be fixed until mental health issues are fixed, and they do not discriminate, just like cancer and heart disease do not discriminate. And mental health maladies are, indeed, very much like cancer or heart disease or stage II diabetes like physical maladies, says Scott Burgess at the David Lawrence Center. For some reason its OK to go to the doctor if you have a problem with another organ a lung or the heart or the liver but when it comes to this most complex organ, the brain, we believe that we should be able to will ourselves out of a problem. The consequences of that can be both financial we pay significantly more to treat people who have reached critical moments and are desperately ill and they can be tragic. Suicide, Mr. Burgess notes, is a case in point, one that reflects our societal unwillingness to deal with mental illness that has just as high a rate of successful cures or control if caught up front as much as 80 percent for major depression, for example as people with heart disease or diabetes. We dont talk about the epidemic of mental illness in our society, admits Mr. Burgess. And that has consequences. For every homicide in America, there are two suicides. Thats a literal statistic. So we talk all the time, and devote a lot of media attention to homicides and handgun violence and I think its critical we wrap our hands around that but we know suicide is the third leading cause of death for those under 18 years old. And we arent doing a lot about it. Except slowly beginning to recognize that being a penny wise will make us a pound foolish, as Mr. Lewis puts it. We have to get ahead of the problem and recognize it if we want to be healthier, and pay less, adds Mr. Glynn. So we know one out of two of us will be mentally ill at some point in our lives, he explains. For example, if you lost a person close to you, maybe you go through a severe period of depression. A lot of people get through that and dont need treatment, but some never recover from it unless they get treatment. They become much less productive as citizens, they become burdens to their families without intending or wanting to, and they suffer. Getting help for this, for depression or addiction or anything, is no different than getting help for some physical illness, he says. In addition, In Florida right now, we have 18,000 people in prison and 15,000 in local jails at any one time, Experts make the case for more services during Mental Health Awareness MonthBY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ SEE MENTAL, A25 GLYNN ILIFF LEWIS

Scott Burgess, the David Lawrence Centerand a huge amount of these people have both substance abuse and mental health problems, and theyre not getting the help they need. In the short run, things dont look good, these experts say. Florida did not expand Medicaid, so many of the poorest citizens do not have health care now, and taxpayer money from Floridians is going to other states, says Mr. Lewis. Also, by shifting to a managed care system here (the HMOs, some of which are private, for-profit businesses), in which the purpose is to cut costs we will face the irony of having to pay more when people dont get care, they say. But there is some promising federal legislation, says Mr. Glynn. The Mental Health Parity Bill, a federal bill, will be fully enacted this year, and it says you have to treat mental health and substance abuse the same as you treat physical health. For example: If you have an insurance company, you might go into a primary care doctor and you have a $10 co-pay. But when you go into a mental health clinic to get help, you have a 50 percent co-pay, he says. So were thinking this may not make a huge difference in anything at first. But in time, this will help eliminate the stigma associated with mental health. Many mental health centers are now offering mental health first aid for both adults and children which is just like taking a CPR class, says Mr. Glynn. Traditionally when you see someone who may be delusional or struggling in some other way, you cross the street and get away, he notes. But this teaches you not to cure anybody, but how to talk to them and get them help. Theres another kind of help too the voting booth, points out Mr. Lewis. Its still a representative government. We have to step up to the government we asked for, and help them see the importance of this Either that, or vote them out. Learn about various aspects of autismThe Mental Health Association of Southwest Florida presents a program about the definition and prevalence of autism from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, May 28, at Clive Daniel Home in Naples.

PAGE 26 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 22-28, 2014 Everything you need to remodel your kitchen...all in one place! PET TALESVetting Dr. GoogleFive ways to evaluate information you find on the Internet BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickWhen you think somethings wrong with your dog or cat, the first thing you do is Google the symptoms. Am I right? I bet I am. Studies show that three out of four people go to the Internet before calling their veterinarians or taking their pets to the clinic. I understand. If youre worried about your pet, you want to have an idea right away of what might be wrong. But Dr. Google isnt always the best source of information for whats going on with your pet or how to treat it. Im not just saying that because I think you should take your furry friend to the veterinarian if hes sick (although I do). The Internet is an amazing source of all kinds of knowledge, but its also full of unreliable, out-of-date and just plain wrong advice. The fact is, some information is more equal than other information. More important, nothing on the Internet beats an in-person exam by your veterinarian. I say that after seeing at least five instances in the past couple of years of pets dying because well-meaning owners relied on information found on the Web and brought them in for help when it was too late. I dont want you to stop going to the Internet for information. I think it can be a valuable resource. I do want to help you learn to find and evaluate the best information. Heres what to look for. Authorship. Who wrote the article? What are his or her credentials? Knowing the writers background or affiliation with a particular institution allows you to judge how knowledgeable he or she is on the subject. You should also look for evidence of bias. Is the author pushing a particular viewpoint? Does the page belong to a company selling a product? Source. Is the information from an academic institution or university, a government agency or a professional organization? Those are generally reliable and authoritative sites. Other good sites have articles that are written or reviewed by veterinarians. Some of my favorites are (where I write),, WebMD Healthy Pets,, and PetMD. A personal or commercial page may have good information, but its important to look carefully at the writers credentials and documentation of that information. Evidence. Whats the proof behind what youre reading? Does the author refer to other sources to back up the information? Who or what are the sources? If a study is mentioned, the writer should include where and when it was published. Then you can look up the summary and find out what kind of study it was. For medical evidence, randomized controlled trials meaning that the study participants were randomly assigned to treatment or control groups provide the most reliable results. Does the study appear in a peer-reviewed journal meaning that impartial scientists who werent part of the study evaluated it before publication? You can check the journals website to see if studies are sent out for review before publication. Reliability. Is the information similar to what youve read on the subject elsewhere, or is it way out in left field? That doesnt necessarily make it wrong, but it does mean that you should cast an extra-critical eye on the ideas presented. Its always a good idea to look at several sources so you can have a well-rounded understanding of the topic. Currentness. How old is the information? What we know can change quickly in this field. Beware of undated information. Look for sites that are updated re gularly. Dr. Google makes it easy to find information, but if you want to be really knowledgeable, you still have to put in the hard work of making sure its accurate. And remember that you have a primary source just an appointment away: your veterinarian. Not everything you find online is accurate.

THE DIVA DIARIESReminders of yesteryear at Rosy Tomorrows Its no secret I love to sparkle Im all about glitter, cocktail parties, champagne and designer shoes that I cannot afford. But sometimes Ill bite into a fresh apple, get a whiff of hay or hear a rooster crow (as long as its crowing after 12 noon) and Ill be transported, albeit briefly, to my Ohio roots and weekends spent on my grandparents farm. It really was like a movie set or something out of a Laura Ingalls Wilder novel. There was a pump (like the kind that helped Helen Keller discover water), an outhouse (although grandpa built an actual bathroom for the house in the s), a barn full of feral cats that I was not allowed to play with because their purpose was to murder rats and such (I know, yuck), and cows (actually, grandpa called them steers and warned me and my cousins not to get too attached because they were not pets, they were dinner). There were apple trees and crops of corn and even a creek out past the pasture that had minnows in it. But what I remember most was the food. Nearly everything we ate came from the farm. My grandmother rarely went to a grocery store. When she needed a tomato, she walked out and picked one from her garden. Even our ice cream was fresh and homemade with an old hand-cranked, wooden ice cream maker (best ice cream EVER). If I miss anything about Ohio, its the simple, mellow ways of farm life. And the food. So, I was excited last Wednesday to take a trip out to the back and beyond of North Fort Myers where there are trees and picket fences and people who ride horses down the road to Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm for a day of shopping and eating and making merry. Caroline Hostettler was selling her deliciously sinful cheeses, plus there was fresh bread, sweet treats, fresh produce and basil lemonade. There was even live music by Dan Tudor tickling the ivories of the baby grand. (Yes, Rosy Tomorrows owners Rose ODell King and her husband Gary King have a baby grand piano in the big, airy, screened-in gazebo in the middle of their acreage. The piano was put there for a dinner the Kings hosted back in February as part of the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest dinner the couple hosted back in February, and there it remains. Apparently, Dan stopped by one day to visit, saw the piano and asked Rose if he could play it during the lunches/ markets that Rose throws every Wednesday.) Anyway Chef Gloria Jordan of La Trattoria Cafe Napoli was also there last week, serving up tasty sliders and a yummy watermelon salad. Naturally, she dressed the part in a red-checked apron, braids and cowboy boots and hat. There were lots of people mingling that Im only used to seeing at fancy evening events people including interior designer Dwayne Bergmann, attorney Luis Insignares, socialite Lisa Marazzi, actress Kelly Legaretta and art dealer Terry Tincher. It was a bit of a challenge to identify some of them sans tuxedos and gowns. I was out of my element, but in the best way. We wandered around, saw a brand new litter of piglets, took pictures of all the pretty chickens on our iPhones and had a marvelous afternoon. I dont think Im ready to say goodbye to city life quite yet, but an afternoon of fresh air, nice folks and especially good food definitely took this diva back to her roots. You can follow Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm on Facebook to see whats cooking on future Wednesdays. Its definitely work the trip. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B5 As an MBA student at Florida Gulf Coast University, Greg Knezevich is on a tight budget. So recently, he decided to sublet his house in the Naples neighborhood of Lake Park using a website called Airbnb. The company facilitates short-term rentals in spaces all over the world homes, rooms, condos, boats, yurts, pretty much anything and turns people like Mr. Knezevich into hosts for vacationers and travelers of all stripes. My hope is when somebody comes and stays here I can offer them a little more personal experience as well, he said. Mr. Knezevich is new to the site and has yet to welcome his first guest, but hes optimistic. Overall, Airbnb is known for its explosive growth. The company boasts about a half-million listings in 192 countries since it started in 2008. Its one of the most successful recent examples of online marketplaces its precursors include eBay and craigslist that together are often called the sharing economy. Peers exchange goods and services directly with each other while the websites offer protections such as insurance and third-party oversight of financial transactions.

PAGE 30 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 22-28, 2014 How dirty money is launderedDirty money is not old and worn paper currency. It is money that was earned through criminal activities. Dirty money has little value if it remains dirty, as the criminal having dirty money cannot use it for legitimate purposes. Dirty money can remain in countries that embrace or turn a blind eye to criminal behavior, but, generally speaking, the criminal with dirty money wants to do legitimate things and live in a country where there is rule of law and where money from crime is not allowed into its economic system. These criminals need their money laundered in order to accomplish legitimate transactions (e.g., purchase of home, cars, jets, investing, holding bank accounts, etc.) As long as a criminal can funnel their dirty money into a legitimate financial account or asset, then they have resources and incentive to continue with their crime. Shutting down money laundering is a big step towards shutting down the crime. (May 28, 2013 Online Currency Exchange Accused of Laundering $6 Billion by Santora, Rashbaum and Perlroth.) For instance, a foreign drug dealer with $10 million of dirty money might want to appear to live a legitimate, highend life in the U.S. But hypothetically, to buy a Manhattan condo and to travel by personal jet and open bank and securities accounts requires use of money earned or received from legitimate sources. Therefore, this criminal has to find a way to take offshore drug money (often held as U.S. dollars) and bring it into the U.S. while not arousing suspicions that it was criminally earned. Another example: A terrorist might want to fund a transnational plot but needs money to be moved transnationally to fund the plot. If the money is not coming from clean sources, or legitimate sources, then the plot is discovered. Dirty money is also created by the white-collar community through tax evasion; false accounting; securities fraud etc.Decades ago, it was much easier to turn dirty money into clean money as the banks in the U.S. were less suspicious of cash deposits and cash movements. Nowadays, even bank transactions of $10,000 are reported by all banks to U.S. authorities for their scrutiny. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network logs more than 15 million transactions per year. Transnational movements were also less scrutinized until even these transactions are now also reported. (Some foreign movements are related to tax evasion and capital flight from a country with controls on how much money leaves its borders.) Yesteryears typical laundering has taken on new form using the cyber world and the art world. Both have offered large degrees of anonymity, but that is all changing. There have been several noteworthy criminal prosecutions demonstrating that authorities are on to the new scams. In May 2013, the U.S. government charged several employees at Liberty Reserve, a global online money exchange business based in Costa Rica, with a multitude of charges. The employees billion-dollar operation involved millions of customers around the world, including about 200,000 in the United States Liberty became a central hub for criminals trafficking in everything from stolen identities to child pornography, according to The New York Times. Art transactions are thought to be the most desirable tool used to launder money. Art is a world in which high-end buyers and sellers do not disclose their identities. According to the same New York Times May 12, 2013 column, It is hard to imagine a business more custom-made for money laundering, with million-dollar sales conducted in secrecy and with virtually no oversight. The buyer and seller are both recorded as private collection. In any other business, no one would be able to get away with this.The typical laundering has three stages. First, dirty money is introduced into the financial system, called placement. It is typically in this stage that launderers are caught. The second stage is called layering or structuring. The placed asset is then divided, aggregated and moved to multiple locations and companies or persons in multiple stages. The objective is to make the tracing of this dirty money or asset hard to track. The third stage is integration. It involves bringing the money or asset into a legitimate transaction or legitimate form. Once the money is clean or legitimate, it can be used for any purpose. Laundering arrests have always been a hot news item. The pubic is intrigued by the sleuthing, the size of the crime, and by satisfaction that those who rob, steal, defraud, cheat, etc. get caught. But stay away from dirty money: U.S. federal money laundering is a crime punishable with 20 years jail time and $500,000 in fines and it hurts the monetary and economic system of the country.

Jennifer Huber, author of the blog Solo Travel Girl and tourism public relations manager for the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau. Generally, sites like Airbnb make money by collecting a fee for each transaction between buyer and seller. They also foster communal self-policing by asking both parties to leave at least a short review of the transaction. There are a growing number of such peer-to-peer websites that span myriad marketplaces from financial services to retail shopping, and from fundraising sites like Kickstarter to rental cars and tour guides. As they grew at a meteoric pace in the last five years, concerns about consumer safety and security in online marketplaces were also raised. Many peer-to-peer sites, especially more recent incarnations, emphasize safeguards they have put in place. Establishing trustA company that pairs travelers with local people who want to rent out their cars, RelayRides provides a $1 million liability insurance policy and 24-hour roadside assistance, said community director Steven Webb. Too, any single major violation such as a DUI or two minor violations can disqualify someone from renting a car through the site. Airbnb didnt return calls seeking comment, although the website lists similar protections, including a $1 million insurance policy for hosts. We have to create a very strong trust and safety net for people, otherwise our marketplace will fail, said Mr. Webb of RelayRides. Its inherently part of our business model. Otherwise it just isnt going to work. The business model spans different industries. In the same way that RelayRides pairs car renters and rentees, CustomMade connects those in search of home furnishings with local makers: people like Jay Lana. The 38-year-old single parent started a business, Retro Steam Works, out of his home in Cape Coral. Mr. Lana designs lamps and other lighting, selling it in places such as storefront windows, at festivals, and on CustomMade. The pieces are fashioned from new electronics and myriad reclaimed metals and other parts, depending on his customers tastes. For one client he created a lamp made of car parts, and for another he used gas pipes and water spigot bolts to help make sconces. Business has been up and down. Theres times when theres no sales at all and times when I have the week full, he said. Fast growthCambridge, Mass.-based CustomMade grew out of a woodworking business that was acquired by the current owners in 2009 and developed into its current peerto-peer business model in 2012. Since then growth spiked, said CEO Mike Salguero, and the company received funding from Google and other venture capitalists. What we provide is an alternative to traditional retail, Mr. Salguero said. You can take a photo of something in a store and say, I kind of like this but Id like a bigger, wider, different material and we can find a local maker who can make it for you at a similar price. San Francisco-based RelayRides has also grown quickly, Mr. Webb said. We went from being in just two cities in March of 2012 to now being in 21,000 cities across the United States, meaning the car is registered for rental. Our fleet can not only expand in numbers but also geographic scope a lot more rapidly than a traditional fleet-based company can. Thats one of the advantages of the peer-to-peer model. The average car renter on the site makes $250 a month, Mr. Webb said, although some have created more full-scale businesses through RelayRides. There are these power users that see an opportunity to benefit from these marketplaces and they do so, he said. In the end the reason why they do that is theyre providing tremendous value to the customers that deal with them. The most popular rental models are BMW 3 Series, Honda Civic and Toyota Prius. Fair play Sites like Airbnb, RelayRides and CustomMade often allow consumers to bypass traditional hotels, rental car companies and furniture manufactures, among other types of businesses. They boast unique bargains along with a personal relationship between a service provider and consumer, but have also been criticized for being less regulated and therefore less safe and reliable than traditional businesses. And there are concerns that Airbnb is competing with traditional hotels on a skewed playing field if its hosts fail to pay local hotel or bed taxes or they dont meet rules such as fire codes imposed on other businesses. For its part, Airbnbs website warns hosts to comply with local rules and regulations, but leaves it up to them and local governments to sort out the rest. With little outside oversight, it is still too easy for Airbnbs hosts to cut corners such as paying a bed tax or acquiring a business license, said Sal Dickinson. This is sort of like peer-to-peer sharing of music, said Mr. Dickinson, who runs Florida Vacation Auction, a Fort Myersbased website where users can save money by bidding on vacation packages. Eventually (it) was killed as it was taken over by peer-to-peer under regulated conditions to respect copyright and ownership. I think in some ways Airbnb will have to morph its model in order to survive. RelayRides is currently not operating in New York, for instance, because of insurance rules that prohibit it. The company is working with officials to fit their business model into existing rules. Thats something peer-to-peer companies will probably be doing more of in years to come, suggested Mr. Webb. Our marketplace and technology by its very nature doesnt fit very well into existing regulatory structures, oftentimes, he said, referring to the sharing economy in general. Overall, its a movement that cant really be contained because I think really at its core is what it does it empowers people the entire sharing economy from Airbnb to Lyft and Uber and RelayRides we allow people to extract more value from idle assets. That idea of people being able to make more from their assets and gain more value from their assets its the perfect business model for these times. SHARINGFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSites such as Airbnb, RelayRides and CustomMade often allow consumers to bypass traditional hotels, rental car companies and fu rniture manufactures, among other types of businesses. Jennifer Huber is author of the blog Solo Travel girl and is the tourism public relations manager with the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau From her blog posted earlier this year: What is the sharing economy? Its a way for peers to connect with peers and exchange goods and services through the Internet locally, across the nation or around the world. Other peer-to-peer websites for travelers: Cookening connects travelers with hosts for one-of-a-kind meals and experiences. Withlocals offers dining in local homes, tours and activities in Southeast Asia. RentaLocalFriend offers guides to numer ous international cities and a few American ones, such as New York. SweatGuru helps travelers book tness classes. HUBER Rachel Botsman is author of the book Whats Mine is Yours: How Collaborative Consumption is Changing the Way We Live. >> Florida Weekly: How do you see Airbnb and the sharing economy in general making its way through this early phase of mixing with the overall economy and its regulations and structures? >> Rachel Botsman: The current regulatory challenges facing the likes of Airbnb and Lyft are a natural state of evolution for the sharing economy. Its a classic case of technology outpacing the law. Concepts such as peer-to-peer space rental or on-demand ride sharing have only been made possible at scale with the advent of smart phones and network technologies. Its important to keep in mind that despite growth, the sharing economy is still a baby. As it grows up, it will naturally face and pose new challenges to policy makers and legislators. For progress to be made, its important we dont try to regulate new ideas with old thinking. I do think the law and regulation has an important role to play in this space but the goal should be to enable and protect, to remove friction not create friction. Whats important for both the entrepreneurs and the regulators is to keep in mind the same end goal: to protect the public. The worst outcome would be if governments cave to the demand of incumbents who are claiming these ideas are unsafe not from a place of public good but fear of healthy market competition. How to Sell High: Avoid these ree Mistakes When Selling Your HomeNaples When you decide to sell your home, setting your asking price is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

PAGE 34 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF MAY 22-28, 2014 I began as a modest family gum business in Brooklyn in 1938. Today Im an iconic American sports-related company offering products tied to sports and athletes Americans love. I introduced Bazooka gum in 1947 and later became known for other candies. Beginning in 1949, I packaged my gum with free cards featuring baseball players, and started an annual baseball card series in 1952. Cards for hockey, basketball and football followed in the s. Ive created a lot of popculture-based collectible cards, too, such as my Wacky Packages line. In 2012 I launched some apps for sports fans. Who am I? Know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Whats Your Asset Allocation?Asset allocation, which can shape your portfolios performance, is a critical but underappreciated aspect of investing. It refers to how your investments are divided among broad categories such as stocks, bonds and cash. So whats the best asset allocation formula? Classic asset allocation guidelines will have you shifting your portfolios focus from stocks to bonds as you grow older and approach retirement. But the perfect asset allocation for you depends on your personal financial situation. In general, if you expect to withdraw money from your investment portfolio in the next few years, then cutting back on stocks is smart. On the other hand, if you can meet your financial needs from other sources, then you can afford to accept the higher risk of stocks in order to try to boost your long-term gains. Meanwhile, if you have more than enough saved to cover your expenses in retirement, then you have two appealing choices: You could move most or all of your money into safe investments, sacrificing growth but locking in a secure lifestyle. Or you could take some risk with money you can afford to lose. If you invest well, you could enrich your retirement or end up with more to leave to your heirs.These same factors could lead you to make changes within asset classes, too. To generate more income from your portfolio, for instance, switching from high-growth stocks to solid dividend payers such as Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson or Intel can be as good as or better than moving from stocks to bonds. (The Motley Fool recommends and owns shares of all three companies.) Learning more about investing can boost your results, too.Its crucial to make sure your money is allocated in a way thats consistent with your financial plan. To learn more, try our Rule Your Retirement newsletter for free (at Its full of concise advice and even some stock, bond and fund recommendations. You might also look into consulting a financial planning pro. You can find some fee-only planners at Consider CommissionsA certain stock I owned in the mid1990s spent much of a year bouncing between $23 and $31 per share, while not paying any dividends. My mutual fund representative said that I should sell the stock and buy more of a mutual fund I was invested in which he, conveniently, sold. I did, and shortly after, the stock started climbing, hitting $100 within about two years. That advice cost me $8,000, but the guy made his 5 percent commission. K., via emailThe Fool Responds: Ouch. There are lots of lessons here, such as how important patience can be for investors. If you still believed in the companys long-term growth prospects and found it to be healthy, hanging on would have been reasonable. Even the best stocks can falter for a while.The commission you paid is a reminder that many financial professionals have conflicts of interest and may not be serving you well. Its worth asking an advice giver how hes compensated and if he will reap a commission. Try to research investment options on your own and make your own decisions. Put your money in your best, most promising ideas. Endurance and a DividendYour parents and grandparents may have invested in General Electric (NYSE: GE), and you should consider it, too. For starters, it offers a dividend that recently yielded 3.3 percent, and it has paid a dividend every quarter since 1899. General Electrics operational diversification and ability to adapt to changing times have kept it going for decades. Its a huge conglomerate, offering turbines, light bulbs, medical imaging equipment, locomotives, home appliances, financial services, jet engines and much more. Its spinning off its retail finance business and becoming more of an energy company, with oil and gas now its fourthlargest revenue generator. Its industrial businesses are gaining momentum. In late April, General Electric offered about $13 billion for the power business of French industrial giant Alstom. With its whopping order backlog of $245 billion, General Electric has a promising future. It can be hard for such a huge company to be nimble, but it has been thinking outside the box, investing in alternative energies such as wind power, partnering with smaller companies on new technologies, and sponsoring competitions to develop innovative solutions. With a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 14, General Electrics stock should be a rewarding long-term investment. (The Motley Fool owns shares of General Electric.) I was founded in Minnesota in 1891 and within a decade had found great success selling pork products. I developed the worlds first canned ham in 1926, and in 1937 introduced SPAM luncheon meat. (Ive since produced more than 7 billion cans of SPAM!) In 1949, I began advertising via a 60-member traveling troupe of female musicians who entertained and sold my wares. My offerings today include Jennie-O turkey products and brands such as Dinty Moore, Don Miguel, El Torito, Peloponnese, Wholly Guacamole, Herdez, House of Tsang, Lloyds and Herb-Ox. I bought Skippy peanut butter in 20 13, too. Who am I? (Hormel Foods) Borrowing to BuyQWhats a leveraged buyout? B.J., BaltimoreAA leveraged buyout (LBO) is when a company is bought out by another entity (or entities), using a lot of debt. Private-equity investors are typically involved, borrowing gobs of money without using much of their own, and often using the acquirees assets as collateral. The acquired company is generally taken private (i.e., it will not trade publicly on the stock market), only to go public again after some changes have been made (such as layoffs, the selling of assets, or dividend increases or decreases).While some LBOs are executed by members of management, others are hostile, executed by outsiders and not welcomed by their targets. Many LBOs dont end well for the company or its shareholders (there are substantial interest payments due, after all), though the acquirers often do well.***QWhats a golden parachute? P.H., Alton, Ill.AA golden parachute is when a company gives a hefty payout to a departing CEO or top executive. Its often required via a clause in the execs contract, and can be triggered if the company is sold or the exec is dismissed. Many are quite generous and might even seem reasonable given the performance of the executive and the company. But others are rather outlandish, and sometimes go to folks who havent done stellar jobs or been in their positions long. A classic example is Bob Nardelli, who left Home Depot after an unimpressive six years with a reward that topped $200 million. Golden parachutes can involve a large cash payout, a generous severance package, stock options and all kinds of perks, such as continued travel allowances, health care coverage and more. As you might imagine, shareholders dont love golden parachutes. Got a question for the Fool?

I am an unapologetic believer in magical thinking, the oft-maligned concept that we can affect lifes outcome using our own mental abilities. Look, humans are incredible and sometimes downright mystical beings. We have powers that are both profound and unsettling just look at cases of self-healing or psychosomatic responses to stress. Not to mention the insights we sometimes have into whats coming. So why not create romance in our lives just through the power of our positive thinking? Ill tell you why: Sometimes magic is not enough. For the longest time, I had my own esoteric love routine. I lit candles. I said incantations. I even owned a voodoo doll. But my Prince Charming? We never crossed paths. What I needed, I decided, was patience. If I just had enough faith, if my heart stayed pure and my intentions strong, then surely the gris-gris would work. Right? This is how I came to spend my Friday and Saturday nights at home, alone. In my defense, it wasnt wasted time. I liked to engage in a rigorous self-study of books such as Mars and Venus on a Date and Smitten: The Way of the Brilliant Flirt. That way, if I actually met a man, I would be ready for him. One Sunday morning, I was having a leisurely breakfast and reading the Modern Love column in The New York Times. The piece was about how a woman tried to use magic to bring an old love back into her life. I smiled to myself. At least I wasnt alone. But about three-quarters of the way through the story, she talked about how the relationship floundered and then ended on a painful and humiliating note. So much for manifestation. Thankfully, the piece didnt stop there. The relationship left the author emotionally bruised but grounded in the real world, she said, and when she decided to find love again, she signed up for in addition to all her magic tricks. I was taking the practical route, too, she wrote. I laughed in my kitchen as I suddenly realized what I had been doing wrong, the important step missing from my magical routine. I didnt need more candles or love spells. What I needed was a bit of practical magic. After all, the simple truth is I dont go to bars, I havent been to a nightclub since girls were wearing tube tops, and my job as an independent writer means I dont even have the possibility of a scandalous workplace romance. In all my focused magic-making, I forgot the most obvious part: If we want to find someone to love, we first have to put ourselves in a position where we might actually meet such a person. That afternoon, after Id washed the dishes from breakfast and put away my solitary tea mug, I performed the least magical of rites: I signed up for online dating. The experience has brought into my life what no spell ever did: options. And even if they dont pan out, at least theyve gotten me out of the house. And that, I tell you, is no small miracle.

PAGE 60 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 22-28, 2014 studio working demos or writing something so I can demo it so I can play it live. Its a big circle for me I never get bored with it. That single-minded dedication to his musical life has helped Mr. Hayes have a fast impact on the national country music scene. His 2012 self-titled album has topped 1 million copies sold and given him three No. 1 country singles: Wanted, Somebodys Heartbreak and I Want Crazy. The latter single came from a deluxe version of the first album called Encore, which included the original album and eight new songs. It was released to coincide with Mr. Hayes first proper headlining tour last fall, which sold out all of its 25 dates. For the 22-year-old Louisiana native, who is now back out on a headlining tour to support his newly released second album, Storyline, reaching a point where he could be a headliner fulfilled a long-time ambition. This was something Id been praying and waiting for for a long time, he said. All of these ideas weve thrown into the show are things Ive been thinking about and dreaming about since I was practically in middle school In all, Mr. Hayes has played more than 500 shows since 2011, opening for Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum and several other top country stars before he made the move up to headlining. He doesnt take the idea of carrying a show lightly. We want to make sure everybody gets their moneys worth and their times worth and they leave with memories, he said. Its not just about playing music. Its about making memories. My dream for every song is that somebody is going to find this and relate to it and its going to mean something to them for the rest of their lives.See (and hear) him nowAlthough a debut album that produced three hit singles will be a tough act to follow, Mr. Hayes said he didnt let himself worry about living up to anyones expectations but his own with Storyline, which was released May 6. Where the first album was weighted toward ballads, Storyline has a few more frisky tracks, such as Wild Card, You Think You Know Someone and the title song. One of the central tracks is the first single from the album, a bigbodied ballad titled Invisible. Released in March, its poised to crack the Top 15 on Billboard magazines Hot Country Singles chart. Mr. Hayes is billing his current run of concerts as the Were Not Invisible tour. He describes the new single as being about people who at some point in their lives have felt they dont fit in and essentially are invisible to others. Its a feeling he knew well during his high school years, when he became immersed in music. He said he didnt have a circle of friends, didnt participate in many school activities and even skipped proms in favor of playing gigs. But he was always well aware of the pressure to fit in. Its always on your mind because you have no perspective, he said. And in high school, thats about the only thing you can really think about. About halfway through his highschool years, he added, he realized he had found his place in life, playing music. I realized it wasnt important to fit in in high school. As miserable as that might have been for the time, I just kept the hope that it would all make sense some day. And by the way, it has. Its always been music. Mr. Hayes was all of 2 years old when he began playing instruments. When he was 4, he performed the song Jambalaya with Hank Williams Jr., and by the time he was 6 he had appeared on several national television programs, made a pair of videos and acted alongside Robert Duvall in the movie The Apostle. He says his parents, Leo and Lynette, have supported his musical interests from the start, right through his high school years, when he moved to Nashville in 2008 and landed his first publishing contract with Universal and when he got his record deal with Atlantic in September 2010. My folks basically learned whatever they could about the business really quick so they could manage what I was doing at the time, he said. It was a strange world. Nobody in my family had ever been (involved) in the industry. So it was a learning process for all of us. I give them all the credit in the world for all of the sacrifices that they made and the self-education they did just to see me get the opportunities to make music. Thats how the story goes. I took a really big interest in music, and they were like, All right, cool. Here we go.

Hes half-way through directing a fourhour rehearsal with the cast of Urinetown approximately 27 students ranging from 13 to 21 years old and his energy shows no sign of flagging. He runs up on stage to show two actors, who are playing a CEO and a senator, how they can make their scene even better. Hes like super bipolar, he says to one young man about the CEOs character. He has to freak out sometimes. He jumps off the stage and runs to the center of the theater to watch as the action continues. Soon hes back up on the stage. Ever been in a situation with your dad or someone elses dad who grabbed you by the back of the neck? he asks. The two shake their heads no, so he demonstrates, grabbing one by the scruff of the neck. The actors re-do the scene, this time including the action, and Mr. Hale almost bursts with glee. Then he has another suggestion. The handshake could you make it more awkward? he asks. See if you could exaggerate it a little. They do, and Mr. Hale laughs. I love this part! I dont know why this is so much fun for me! Mr. Hale is so high energy that everything he says sounds as if its punctuated with at least five exclamation points. Super cheesy! he yells from midtheater. Walk around and be crazy and obvious! Lets go back to the doodle-ooos! The Theatre Conservatory students, part of Florida Repertory Theatres educational program, are practicing on the stage of downtown Fort Myerss historic Arcade Theatre. There are no sets yet; bare cables dangle above the stage and you can see the rear brick walls of the building. Some students huddle in a group, rehearsing their lines. Others stand in the wings, waiting for their cues. Les Englehart, 16, playing CEO Caldwell B. Cladwell, is dressed in the furthest thing from managerial pinstripes: a SpongeBob SquarePants T-shirt, with the character Patrick riding a wild, menacing shark. Mr. Englehart picks up a clear cane and starts dancing around. I made flushing mean flush at the bank, he sings.The price of going pottyUrinetown is an off-the-wall musical set during a time of great drought. Because water is so valuable, private bathrooms have been banned. Everyone must use a public toilet and pay for the privilege. Mr. Engleharts character, the CEO of Urine Good Company, is getting rich off of this misfortune. The show is about an uprising of the people to fight for what they believe is right, says Mr. Englehart, who attends Cypress Lake Center for the Arts. Its not quite a dystopia, but on the brink of it, leading up to it, before it all went bad. Urinetown: The Musical began as a show in the New York International Fringe Festival, then played off-Broadway. Greg Kotis, who wrote the shows book, was inspired by the pay-per-use toilets he encountered while traveling in Europe as a student. He co-wrote the lyrics with Mark Hollmann, who also wrote the music. The musical, which ran on Broadway for almost 1,000 performances from September 2001 through January 2004, was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and won three. The show has been described as a satirical comedy musical. Its self-referential and pokes fun at other musicals, including Les Miserables and West Side Story. How would Mr. Englehart describe the humor of the show? Its comedically bleak, he says. It is really funny. Its almost as if they know whats going to happen, and they try to make the best of it. Bryanna Walker, of Fort Myers High School, describes it as not your everyday humor. Its kind of almost secret humor that you have to think about, she says. Its over the top. Its making fun of overacting and the craziness of musicals. Though Ms. Walker is the same age as Mr. Englehart, she plays Hope Caldwell, his characters daughter. Urinetown is the only musical I wanted to do, says Josiah Vega, 17, of Cypress Lake Center for the Arts. He plays the shows hero, Bobby Strong, who falls for Hope. The shows melodrama appeals to him. Its a musical Ive always liked, he says. It allows me to just be goofy in every way. As a person, Im goofy, a hopeless romantic. (In Urinetown,) youre making fun of everything. You cant take it seriously. Everything is funny. It makes fun of love songs, of other musicals.Ridiculousness All three have high praise for Mr. Hale as a director. He really helps, Ms. Walker says. Every time he wants us to do something, he makes it really easy to understand. Hes extremely positive and very supportive. He always helps us find new ways to look at our characters. Hes probably one of the most fun directors Ive ever worked with, Mr. Englehart says. Hes very helpful and energetic all the time. He keeps the cast energized even at 8 at night when weve been working (on the show) for three hours and have been at school since 7 a.m. Hes a great director, declares Mr. Vega. I like his approach. He doesnt get super upset with you. Hes the one who gets us all hyped up to do these parts and gets our energies up. And its true; although theyre in the last hour of rehearsal, Mr. Hale is still running at maximum speed. Its gotta be ridiculous! Youre frolicking! he yells to two actors playing Officer Lockstock and Officer Barrel. The two are skipping and prancing about while wearing jackboots. Ridiculous seems to be the key word of the night; Mr. Hale sprinkles it liberally throughout the rehearsal. Can you be more ridiculous? he asks at one point. A little later, he exclaims, This is ridiculous! This is absolutely insane! Its high praise. Hes building the musical scene by scene, line by line. He emphasizes the characters motivations to the actors. I try to give them reasons why theyre doing this, rather than say: go over here and sit down, he says after the rehearsal. Mr. Hale, who is also the programs education associate, was recently seen in the comedy Mr. Perfect in Florida Reps PlayLab festival. Sometimes hell act out a role to show the actors how they can play their characters even bigger. I feel I have to direct by example because (the show) is so energetic, he explains. At the beginning of rehearsals, hes been having the kids play games to get their energy up, so it will bleed into the show. He prefers acting, but directing teaches him more as an actor, he says. Im very specific in what I want out of them (but am able) to collaborate as well with the kids. They have such good ideas, he says. He believes the best way to direct them is by being supportive. You have to make sure they know you want them to succeed. Youre right there with them. The talent level of the kids in Fort Myers is insane, he says. Theyre willing to go with you where you want to take them and you just hope youre a good leader. Theyre sponges. They soak everything up. He calls Urinetown the musical comedy with the unusual name. Its a spoof of musicals, he says. If you love musicals, you will love this show. Its just really fun to spoof a musical. Its like a tribute. Its kinda like a love note thanking you for all youve done. The best form of flattery is making fun of something, he declares. Its a melodrama. Its ridiculous!

LATEST FILMSMillion Dollar Arm Is it worth $10? YesAh, baseball. The national pastime. The grand game with a splendid history that deserves respect. Fathers, sons, peanuts, cracker jacks. Going to a baseball game which Ive done with my father every summer for the last 18 years is an American tradition as rich as apple pie. So naturally, a good portion of the baseball-themed Million Dollar Arm is set in India. And a good part of the main characters motivation is money; the hell with finding a strong pitching arm in India to make some impoverished kids American dream come true, first and foremost daddy needs to get paid. Exploiting young foreign innocents for profit may not be as amoral as sex trafficking, but mentioning the two in the same sentence isnt completely unfair either. Based on a true story, Jon Hamm (Mad Men) plays J.B. Bernstein, a down-on-his-luck sports agent whose business is crumbling. With his bigname clients retired, J.B. hasnt had a new signee in years. One drunken night he and his partner, Aash (Aasif Mandvi), watch cricket on television and are struck with inspiration: They should create a reality TV game show in which they travel through India looking for a great pitching arm that can be trained for the big leagues. In these scenes, director Craig Gillespie (Fright Night) does a nice job showcasing a slice of life in India, complete with poverty, oppressive heat and overcrowding. There are the obligatory shots of the Taj Mahal, but beyond that are the dirt roads and bureaucratic nonsense that J.B. has to fight to make the show a reality. With the help of churlish baseball scout Ray (Alan Arkin) and an enthusiastic local named Amit (Pitobash), the search yields two potential major leaguers: Rinku (Suraj Sharma, Life of Pi) and Dinesh (Madhur Mittal), neither of whom had previously touched a baseball. Back in L.A., pitching coach Tom House (Bill Paxton) trains Rinku and Dinesh as they adapt to life in the states. Meanwhile, J.B. develops feelings for his tenant, Brenda (Lake Bell), who also provides a much-needed moral compass. Through the dramatic ups and downs, the director holds Thomas McCarthys (The Visitor) script together with a steady hand, never allowing things to get too sentimental or hokey. This is essential, because plausibility begets credibility in this remarkable story, making it easy to get swept up in the drama and ultimately root for JB and the boys to succeed. Baseball as a sport is steadily declining to hockey levels of unpopularity due to its insufferable pace and antiquated traditions that owners and league officials refuse to modernize. A reality TV show stunt is actually a good idea in that it generates discussion about the sport in a non-traditional way, which allows a sense of intrigue where previously there was none. Million Dollar Arm does an admirable job of capturing that intrigue, and its a warm-hearted, solid movie to boot. There are certainly better baseball movies, but none tell a story quite like this. dan >> In reality, sports agent J.B. Bernstein and company auditioned roughly 40,000 kids while travelling around India, then narrowed the pool to 30 before choosing the nal two to bring to America.

THURSDAY 6-9 IN OUR LOUNGE 1585 Pine Ridge Road, #5, Naples, FL 34109239-592-0050 FILM CAPSULES Chef (Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson) After being fired by his jerk boss (Dustin Hoffman) and pissing off a famous food critic (Oliver Platt), a talented chef (Mr. Favreau) opens a food truck in Miami and drives across the southern U.S. with his son (Emjay Anthony) and sous chef (John Leguizamo). Funny when it needs to be and poignant throughout, this film showcases Mr. Favreaus (Iron Man) skills as a writer/director/producer/actor in all the right ways. Rated R.Neighbors (Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne) New parents Mac (Mr. Rogen) and Kelly (Ms. Byrne) fight with the frat house (led by Mr. Efron) that moves in next door. The laughs are consistent, creative and hilarious. Rated R.The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx) Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Mr. Garfield) loves Gwen Stacy (Ms. Stone) and protects the city from supercharged villain Electro (Jamie Foxx). The action is fun, but the real highlight is the charming chemistry between Mr. Garfield and Ms. Stone. Rated PG-13.Fading Gigolo (John Turturro, Woody Allen, Sofia Vergara) When his older friend (Mr. Allen) says he knows two women (Ms. Vergara and Sharon Stone) willing to pay for a threesome, Floravante (Mr. Turturro) takes the job. It strains for laughs and the dramatic elements feel half-baked. Mr. Turturro also wrote and directed; no one should write jokes for Mr. Allen other than Mr. Allen. Rated R.The Railway Man (Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Hiroyuki Sanada) In 1980 a British man (Mr. Firth) is given the chance to confront the Japanese soldier (Mr. Sanada) who tortured him at a POW camp during World War II. The jumping timeline between past and present doesnt serve the movie well, and the performances are only so-so. Based on a true story. Rated R. Transcendence 1/2(Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman) A terminally ill scientist uploads his brain into a computer and evolves at a dangerously alarming rate. The ending is given away in the beginning, and the second half is a bit too much sci-fi fantasy for its own good. Still, it gives you plenty to think about. Rated PG-13.Rio 2 (Voices of Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Andy Garcia) Blue (Mr. Eisenberg), Jewel (Ms. Hathaway) their kids and friends venture into the Amazon to find other blue macaws. But instead, they find grave danger and Jewels father. Its only mildly amusing overall, with forgettable songs, jokes that often miss and animation thats merely adequate. Rated G.

The action is exciting and the story has enough twists to maintain interest throughout. This is everything a solid action movie should be. Rated PG-13.Noah (Russell Cr owe, J ennifer Connelly, Emma Watson) Noah (Mr. Crowe) faces grave moral dilemmas after God chooses him to build an ark to save animals when a forthcoming flood wipes out mankind. The visual effects are impressive, and Mr. Crowe gives the movie all he can. Too bad theres so much going on and so many gaps in logic that it doesnt hold together very well. Rated PG-13.Sabotage (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Josh Holloway) A DEA task force led by Breacher (Mr. Schwarzenegger) is killed off one by one after the $10 million they stole goes missing. The ending leaves a bit to be desired, but overall its a good story with thrills that keep you invested. Rated R.The Lunchbox 1/2(Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui) In Mumbai, a mistake in the lunchbox delivery service leads to an exchange of letters between a lonely widower (Mr. Khan) and a forlorn housewife (Mr. Kaur). Its from Bollywood, but its not a musical as one might expect. Rather, its the type of calm, thoughtful drama thats appropriately heartwarming and sweet, emboldened by a kind of simplicity not often found in modern movies. Rated PG.

Create Space. 430 pages. Trade paperback. $16.Mitch Grant came out with his first St. James City, Florida Mystery last fall. Though the book is billed as a novel (and there is no better label for it), it really combines several categories of writing into something at once unique and a bit unsettling. The most successful element is Mr. Grants homage to the areas natural beauty. He also, through his surrogate narrator Jim Story, enjoys the independent spirit of the community of St. James City, its relative isolation and friendly atmosphere and, by extension, that of all of Pine Island, one of several intriguing barrier islands off Floridas southwestern Gulf Coast. In elaborating on these attractions, the author goes far beyond the needs of his story line into chamber-of-commerce enthusiasm. Still, its fun to follow Jim and his wife Jill, victims of topophilia, into the handful of eateries and bars that dot the tiny town (actual places). We eavesdrop on the good-natured chatting that accompanies the drinking and eating. Getting to know the routes from here to there, the dangers of boating in shallow water, the technique of popping cork fishing, and the colorful history of these islands is certainly pleasurable. And that history is intimately connected to the murder plot, so lets get to it. Before Jim and Jill moved to St. James City, Jims work friend Javiar showed an interest in the place and planned to be an early visitor. Once he arrives, he stays a week with his friends and then rents nearby for another week. Javiar is filled with questions about anything and everything, and he asks them at a frantic pace. Though he pretends to be interested in the fishing, his real interest seems to lie elsewhere. He learns his way around the islands, rents a boat, carouses with the locals until all hours of the night and is seen less and less by Jim. One night, a local fishing guide visits the Story home with the bad news that he has found Javiar murdered on Punta Blanca. The mystery of who killed Javiar and why has to do with his Spanish background and especially his particular lineage; the rumors of gold buried on coastal islands and sunken in ships at the bottom of the sea; pirates and politicians; GRANT


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 22-28, 2014 C15 and the tangled relationships among Spain, the United States and Cuba back at the turn of the 20th century. The lineages of several important families long established in this corner of the Florida peninsula also receive detailed attention. Indeed, even the Collier family is described and as the author puts it used fictionally. Jim and Jill develop a strained and limited partnership with Lt. Mike Collins of the Lee County Sheriffs Department, the man in charge of the investigation. They sometimes work together, sometimes independently, in tracking down possible suspects and motives. Through all of this, another leg of the story builds: the powerful love between Jim and Jill that continues to grow even as, now in their 60s, they experiment with a new and unfamiliar lifestyle. Frustrated by the slow progress of the official investigation, the two old lovebirds put themselves in harms way to expose the killer. In fact, Jim literally puts himself out as bait in order to hook the murderer. Just in case readers have not been thoroughly persuaded that they should visit the novels setting, at the conclusion of the narrative the author provides an appendix titled Notes on Visiting Pine Island and Saint James City. Mr. Grant regularly invokes the name of Randy Wayne White, a man whose work he considers a model for the kind of novel he is attempting. Though there are obvious similarities in setting and in detailed attention to navigation, vessel characteristics and seamanship, the novice author has a long way to go to approach the masters level of achievement. Still, fans of Mr. White and of the even more historically elaborate Robert Macomber will enjoy this promising debut effort.And they can look forward to the second book in the series, The Cut Bait Murders, which just became available. 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.

Noninvasive medical treatments will restore a more youthful appearance to your face.RACHEL KASOFFRN, BSN, Certied Botox/Dermal Filler NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 22-28, 2014 CURRENT DATE KOVEL: ANTIQUES Judge collectibles by their appeal, not their price tags BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELOne-of-a-kind collectibles are interesting and often not expensive. In the 1980s, a Navaho Indian decided to make a stuffed toy from a Pendleton wool blanket. Today, a vintage Pendleton wool blanket in good condition can sell for hundreds of dollars. But 30 years ago, a worn Pendleton blanket had a lower value, so it was cut up and turned into a toy. The result was a plush toucan bird that looks like the Toucan Sam logo for Froot Loops cereal. The finished bird measures 16 by 11 inches. Allard Auctions of St. Ignatius, Mont., sold it for $115 at a March 2014 auction held in Mesa, Ariz. There were 11 bids. Q: I have a glass quart jar thats embossed 776 above the Liberty Bell and 976 below it. The other side of the jar is embossed Masons. Is it worth anything? A: Canning jars like yours were made by Anchor Hocking of Lancaster, Ohio, to celebrate the 1976 Bicentennial of the United States. The jars often are found today and sell for $5 to $10. Q: My husband was a cartoonist and sometimes corresponded with Charles Schulz, famous for his Peanuts comic strip. When my husband had heart surgery, Schulz sent him two of his original Peanuts strips. Each one is about 30 inches long and 6 inches high and is signed Schulz. My husband has since died and the strips now belong to me and our children. One strip features Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and the other Lucy and Schroeder. Please tell me what the strips are worth. A: If the strips are indeed original works by Charles Schulz, theyre valuable. Some have sold at auction for $15,000. The first thing you want to do is make sure you are storing them safely by using archival papers and boxes. Keep them away from direct light. Insure them. If the strips are not marked with a date, try to find out when they first ran. If you want to sell, contact a reputable auction house that deals in comic art. Q: I am thinking about selling a set of Sascha Brastoff dishes. The dishes are pink and gold and include service for eight. I think the dishes date from 1949. What is the set worth? A: Sascha Brastoff (1918-1993), born Samuel Brostofsky, was raised in Cleveland but moved to New York City when he was 17. After serving in the armed forces during World War II, he settled in Los Angeles and worked as a costume designer for 20th Century Fox before starting his own small ceramic business in 1947. His company, Sascha Brastoff Pr oducts, opened in 1952. Brastoffs earliest china and earthenware dinner services date from 1954, so your set is not as old as you think. His bestknown pink-and-gold pattern is Surf Ballet. Check the mark on the bottom of your dishes; it can help determine when they were made. Brastoffs earliest mark was his first name, hand-painted. When a new Brastoff factory opened in 1953, a stamped mark was used that includes a rooster and Brastoffs full name. After 1963, the year Brastoff retired, the circled-R registration number was added to the mark. An early complete set of Sascha Brastoff dishes could sell for several hundred dollars. Q: My grandmother gave us a silver bowl that she got as a gift in the 1950s or s. Its 8 inches in diameter. The bottom is marked with the lion, anchor and old English letter G mark used by Gorham. The sides of the bowl are engraved with three initials and the years 1854 and 1904. Were thinking of selling it or recycling it for scrap value. Can you tell us what its worth?A: The dates and monogrammed initials on your bowl indicate it probably was made to mark some event, perhaps a 50th anniversary. Silver is always worth at least its meltdown value. If a piece of silver also has sentimental value, families often keep it regardless of the meltdown value. Take the bowl to a jeweler or dealer in gold and silver to find out its minimum value. The price of silver fluctuates, and the value will depend upon the current price of silver, the weight of the bowl, and whether its solid silver or silver plate. You should get at least meltdown price from an antiques dealer or auction. Tip: Put a piece of plastic jewelry under hot water. When the plastic gets warm, smell it. Bakelite smells like formaldehyde, celluloid smells like camphor (mothballs), and Galalith, a 1920s plastic, smells like burnt milk. Lucite does not smell.

Tickets are on sale now. Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world, a world where something else is possible. Its the world of Varekai. The story begins when the sky lets go a solitary young man. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, he takes flight on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. Directed by Dominic Champagne, the production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai. Tickets range from $35 to $100. Call (800) 745-3000 or visit Play shows Tea Partiers are people tooTheatre Conspiracy presents Chatting with the Tea Party, a documentary-style play by Rich Orloff, Thursday through Sunday, May 29-June 1, at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers. Mr. Orloff traveled the country interviewing leaders of local Tea Party groups, trying to answer the question: Who are these people? The answers showed him theres more to the Tea Party than most folks know. The play is based on more than 63 hours of interviews and notes from Tea Party meetings and events. Nothing the interviewees say on stage is made up. I wanted to talk to people who were really invested in the movement, he says. Some refused to be interviewed, but many agreed. I suspect a lot of them were thinking, Who is this guy? in the same way I was thinking, Who are these people? Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $20, with proceeds from each performance benefitting local nonprofit organizations.

NAPLES URGENT CARE WALK-IN MEDICAL CLINICESTERO URGENT CARE WALK-IN MEDICAL CONTRACT BRIDGEHow would you play it? BY STEVE BECKERAssume youre declarer at four spades and West leads the ace and another diamond, which you ruff. You lead the ten of spades, which wins, and then the jack, taken by West with the ace. West shifts to a heart, won by East with the ace, and East returns the king of diamonds. It doesnt matter whether you ruff high or low in either case West sooner or later scores his nine of trumps, and down you go. Thats the story if you played the hand this way, but naturally theres more to it than that. The question is whether you can figure out how to make the contract and it can be made now that you know how the East-West cards are divided. As with most problems of this type, the solution is easy once youve seen it. If youd like to work it out for yourself, stop reading right here; if not, heres the way its done: Obviously, you have to try to do something to keep West from getting a second trump trick. To that end, after ruffing the diamond jack at trick two, you should lead a club and trump it in dummy! Now play the third round of diamonds and, when East produces the king, discard a heart (instead of ruffing). This hands East-West their second trick, but the only other one they can get is the ace of trumps. East is out of diamonds, and there is nothing else he can return to injure you. The effect of this loser on loser play is that it removes a potential threatening card (the king of diamonds) from Easts hand at the same time as you dispose of a heart which was a loser in any case. It is not important that you wind up losing two diamond tricks instead of a heart and a diamond. What is important is that you lose only one trump trick instead of two.

Terry and Pat V., via emailA: A&Es highest-rated original drama of all time will return for a 10-episode third season on Monday, June 2, at 10/9c. I recently spoke with series star Cassidy Freeman (who plays Cady Longmire), and she gave me a little hint as to what to expect this season: The first season of the show really set up who these characters are. We got into the rhythm of having a crime every week or every two weeks, and then last season I felt like we started to see things happen to each of these characters, and the proverbial s#!t hit the fan. Last seasons tagline was: A storm is coming. And now this season, the storm has come, and youll see how people deal with the wreckage. Theres going to be a lot of change. How do they put their lives back together? How do they fight to keep what they love? And speaking of love, will Cady and Branch continue to explore their onagain/off-again relationship? Absolutely, Cassidy said. Its really, really complicated. At this point, it is no longer a dont-tell-my-dad taboo. Now its more about if they really want to be together, and if they are each others priority. Q: Is The Killing coming back for another season? I know it was canceled last season, and then AMC decided to give it a third season. Has it escaped death again? Carl T., SeattleA: In an almost unprecedented move, The Killing has escaped yet another cancelation. This past September, AMC did indeed decide not to renew the crime/mystery drama for a fourth season, and thats when Netflix stepped up to the plate. Ne tflix, which has been the series exclusive digital partner for all three seasons, will air a six-episode fourth (and final) season, with The Killing joining the ranks of superb Netflix original series like Arrested Development, Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards and many more. The complete fourth season of The Killing will be available beginning Aug. 1. Q: Can you tell me if The Carrie Diaries will return this fall?Denise G., via emailA: Along with The Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed, the not-sogreat-in-the-ratings The Carrie Diaries has been canceled by the CW to make room for new programming. The Flash, iZombie, Jane the Virgin and The Messengers will join the CWs growing lineup of supernatural and edgy dramas. Q: I am amazed every week by Hannibal, especially the writing and all of the actors. Do you know yet if itll be back for another season? Scott R., via emailA: The dark and brilliant psychological thriller which stars Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen will return to NBC for a third season, most likely in spring 2015.

Frankly, its a concept that, in theory, seems nuts pazzo would be the Italian expression. Yet Cirellas somehow pulls it off. We found much to like and little to criticize on either side of the menu, despite the sense of cognitive dissonance involved when you start your meal with raw fish smeared with wasabi paste and move on to pasta Bolognese. The sushi chef here does not skimp on the fillings, producing larger rolls that dont leave you hungering for more. Classic dishes like eggplant Parm and linguine with clams are present, but Cirellas doesnt lean too heavily on long lists of Americanpleasing piccata and Marsala variations. The pasta dishes are available in two portions, which is a nice gesture. The housemade gnocchi with Bolognese were tender, perfectly rolled and oh-sofresh tasting. The vitello di Parma was marked by delicately caramelized meat with bits of the salty ham, zesty slivers of garlic and mellow, milky cheese -a delight for the palate. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2013 HobNob Kitchen & Bar, 720 Fifth Ave., Naples; 580-0070 Well-known restaurateur Michael Hernandez (Aqua, Bistro 821, Bistro 41 and Zoes, among others) and Executive Chef Tony Biagetti (formerly of Handsome Harrys) have created a spot that appeals to all of the senses and offers a casual setting yet takes no shortcuts with food, drink or service. From the list of creative cocktails, I loved the Watermelon Fresca (organic cucumber vodka, watermelon juice, cucumber and mint) and the by-the-glass wine list has some great choices. An octopus and white bean appetizer was a superb blend of flavors and textures. Grilled artichoke hearts were tender and delicate, served with a lemon aioli. While the Snapper in Crazy Water sounded more exotic than it turned out to be (the sauce consisted of made of coconut water, tomatoes and basil), it was nonetheless tasty and the rotisserie chicken was perfectly cooked, served with mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and onions. For dessert: Bonaffee pudding, a toffee pudding with bananas. Full bar.

But the concept, from drinks to dessert to decor, is so clearly defined and seamlessly executed that it would be a welcome addition to any citys dining scene. Expect to find a range from traditional to trendy: richly flavored cocoa-infused chicken mole, say, as well as a ceviche pairing snapper and shrimp with bits of fried plantain and diced mango. Even chili rellenos gets a new twist courtesy of a roasted jalapeno filled with crumbled chorizo, apples and Chihuahua cheese. A sampler platter of tacos, sopes and tamales would be a welcome addition; the tamales alone were redolent of fresh-ground corn and came with rave-worthy frijoles churros studded with pork. For dessert you cant go wrong with lush tres leches cake or churros dipped in molten chocolate. Masas modern Mexican food, stylish atmosphere and stellar service will leave you wanting mas. Full bar.

A classic papaya salad, with shrimp, shreds of green papaya, carrots, green beans and peanuts, was sweet, tart and spicy, as ordered; tum kha soup with shrimp and miso soup both proved to be faithful renderings. The special pad Thai studded with chicken, pork, beef and shrimp was a symphony of textures and tastes. The kitchen also did a fine job on seafood and vegetable tempura.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 22-28, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINEA roaring good time had by all at first Lionfish FestivalWhat a great idea: help rid Gulf of Mexico waters of an invasive species by making said species into a commercially marketed food source. That was one of the aims of the recent Lionfish Festival: Feast on the Beast, held at The Heights Center in Fort Myers as a fundraiser for the foundation that helps improve the lives of Harlem Heights residents and for Lee Reefs, a nonprofit that helps protect local marine environments. Lionfish, although beautiful to behold, have venom-filled spines and breed prolifically. Their home waters are in the Indo-Pacific region; those found in our waters are invaders that consume huge quantities of young snapper, grouper and other fish and are found in abundance in lobster traps. The Heights Foundation and Lee Reefs teamed up to line up several chefs and a handful of judges for a lionfish cook-off in hopes of sparking an appetite for the pesky fish. The chefs outdid themselves, using vastly different approaches and proving that this fish, which closely resembles the much-sought-after hogfish, is a versatile one that could work well on area menus. Chef Marbin Avilez-Guzman, of The Firestone Grille Room in Fort Myers, won both the Peoples Choice award and top place among the celebrity judges (of which I was a member) for his inventive dish that included swirled sweet potatoes, fennel, champagne vinaigrette, an orange-cardamom sauce and basil and tomato oils. From The Timbers on Sanibel, Executive Chef Teh Peng won the judges top place for his Parmesan-crusted lionfish with citrus beurre blanc, capers, fried parsley and roasted tomatoes. Other equally worthy efforts came in from Crave Culinaire, Reds Fresh Seafood House, the Sea Dog Brewing Co. of Clearwater and 3 Fishermen Restaurant. Im hoping lionfish starts showing up soon on menus at area restaurants. I promise to do my part to annihilate the species at least those pulled from gulf waters. National recognition for NaplesLets hear it for the discriminating readers who participated in Conde Nast Travelers survey for the magazines list of best American cities for foodies. Naples came in No. 17, cited for seafood and its great range of international dining spots. Mentioned specifically were Caffe dellAmore for Italian cuisine; Cote dAzur for French fare; IM Tapas for Spanish tapas; Meredays for world flavors; and Trulucks for stone crabs.Philly soft pretzels headed hereIf youve never had a hot-from-theoven Philadelphia soft pretzel, you havent experienced the pinnacle of pretzeldom. Neapolitans will be able to do just that when a branch of the Philly Pretzel Factory opens inside the Walmart at 6650 Collier Blvd. The chain will open its first Southwest Florida branch in August or September, says President Marty Ferrill. We start each morning with zero inventory of pretzels, he says, and make them fresh using simple, highquality ingredients. In addition to the standard soft pretzels, the store offers small-bite versions, pretzel dogs (with beef hot dogs), mustards and sauces, among other items. As someone whose grandparents lived next door to a small soft pretzel bakery in Philadelphia, where I purchased pretzels straight from the oven, I can barely stand the wait.Cooking camps for kidsHere are two culinary camps for kids coming up this summer.
