An ambitious thundercloud off to the south was patiently sneaking up on people fishing off the Fort Myers Beach pier. But it had yet to reach the beach, and from where they stood on the end of the pier, mid-afternoon on a Tuesday, the sky was blue and the aquamarine water beneath the pilings filled with light and minnows and hope. The distant sounds of The Beach Boys and jackhammers floated off the beach while they watched spinning rods, their wispy lines nearly still in the air like so many broken strands of spiders webs, hooks baited most popularly with shrimp or squid.

Football or futbol (soccer). How can we tell whats important? It all gets confusing. Then in the midst of our angst, along comes the World Cup, with the championship game played out between Argentina and Germany. Suddenly it all becomes clear. Vast numbers of our fellow humans adorned in blue and white (Argentina) or in red and black (Germany) appear in the stadium in Rio, at night, waving their arms and chanting in unison. Jesus the 40-meter-high Cristo Redentor looking down on the contest from his perch high atop the great mountain above Guanabara Bay does not wave back at the crowd. But never mind that. Humanity rushes forward in beery bursts of sacred-cow encouragement, its champions spiriting a round ball up and down a green and immaculate field. This degree of self-definition based on a game this nationalism is intense. Within hours of the games conclusion on Sunday, news analysts announced that it was much more than a mere game. It was also a major political moment on the international stage. Once again, the pundits proclaimed, Germans have come to view themselves not only as the strongest nation in Europe, but as one of the worlds superpowers. After all, they triumphed by a score of one to zip. Historically, too, the World Cup contest had a resonance that no World Series, for example, could match. A number of Nazis famously avoided prosecution by the Allies at the end of World War II by embarking on new lives under different identities in Argentina and Brazil, where they were embraced. Meanwhile, some Argentinians graciously accepted their teams defeat on Sunday by turning it into a life lesson into failure-ology, the study of losing. My teams recent loss in the World Cup made me want to work, laugh, drink and (make love) harder, a friend of mine wrote in a Facebook post. (Wouldnt it be a blast to live as an Argentinian? Everything makes them want to work, laugh, drink and make love harder, as far as I can tell.) But he wasnt through. For we can achieve temporary victories and pleasures in those arenas, but in the end, defeat awaits all. The perfect team usually wins, but I saw my ragged side, always insecure, bombastic, and full of existential doubt, beat the odds twice in my lifetime. Thats quite enough, added to all the other ephemeral victories my time on Earth afforded me so far. Futbol is a metaphor for life: you lose often and you lose in the end, but in the meantime, you win sometimes, life flickers intense for a second if youre lucky and then you lose again. That beautiful existential notion is built like a one-story house subject to frequent flooding. I want us to add a second story to the Futbol house, or at least give it some stilts. I want us to get out of the flooding. Perhaps, then, its architecture of human failure lit by ephemeral joys, as my friend sees the lesson of the game, can become an architecture of permanent embrace of a universal acknowledgement that all of us are related by history, by existence in time, by need, by the game of life itself. The World Cup gives us a chance to do that; in fact, we are all in the World Cup. But some of us still refuse to admit it. So, while the immediate games unfolded in Rio, thousands of children and some of their parents were accused of invading our borders, especially in Texas where the larger game is being played out. Republicans Rick Perry, the Texas governor, and U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, along with Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist and others started using military and historic analogies (Normandy, D-Day) to describe the invaders. These well-fed, well-rested North Americans have called for a reaction that amounts to this: Meet those children at the border with force, and turn them back. Clearly, they dont have a clue about futbol or failure, either one. If we are to lose the real World Cup, it will not be the result of coming out on the short end of goals scored in Rio. It will be, instead, the consequence of failing to take the words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty to heart, especially when it comes to children: Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore Theyre not invading. On the contrary, theyre trying to escape very difficult and often deadly lives, just as I would or you would. Knowing that is the second story of the house of futbol that all of us are in this game together. The real World Cup, therefore, is not over yet. Lets not repeat the mistake that President Franklin Roosevelt and his cabinet made in 1939, when they failed to recognize that, too. They rejected the pleas of 938 Jewish refugees aboard the S.S. St. Louis, turning it away from our borders. Like the refugee children of today, those people had no interest in invading anybody. They were simply trying to escape. Forced to return to Europe, many of them met their deaths at the hands of the Nazis. t I t G n E roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Obamas Border CrisisIts hard to imagine a more apt summation of the lunatic state of the nations immigration debate than the split screen over the past weeks. In Washington, most respectable opinion lined up, yet again, to condemn Republicans for not passing an amnesty under the guise of defunct-for-now comprehensive immigration reform. Meanwhile, the crisis on the Southern border continued. A massive influx of people largely driven by Central Americans, many of them children drawn here in the expectation of lax immigration enforcement is overwhelming border officials and facilities. A Wall Street Journal story about the crisis was headlined Obama Plans Executive Action to Bolster Border Security, which has a man-bites-dog feel to it after all of the administrations executive actions to undermine immigration enforcement. House Speaker John Boehner spoke imprecisely when he excoriated the president for giving false hope to children and their families that if they enter the country illegally they will be allowed to stay. Actually, the hope is quite real. A leaked memo from a high-ranking Border Patrol official said that only 3 percent of non-Mexicans apprehended at the border are being returned to their native countries. It will not be open arms, Vice President Joe Biden thundered in Guatemala City, attempting to dissuade would-be migrants. Were going to hold hearings with our judges, consistent with international law and American law, and were going to send the vast majority of you back. The only part he had right is that we will hold hearings. The immigrants themselves may or may not be part of them. The administration is waving the families and children into the United States, dispersing them around the country, and giving them a date often quite distant because of a huge backlog to appear in immigration court. Experience says only about a quarter will actually show up. Why would they? As Byron York of the Washington Examiner points out, once illegal immigrants are in the country, they fairly quickly can become part of the broad category of people that the administration has exempted from interior enforcement. Even many of the illegal immigrants who go all the way through the system and get a removal order dont go anywhere. According to Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies, there are roughly 800,000 aliens who have been ordered removed but are still here. The administrations policy of eviscerating interior enforcement is entirely its own creation. That policy, together with the presidents de facto amnesty of young illegal immigrants and all the talk of a more wide-ranging amnesty over the past year, has had a predictable effect. The key to reversing the tide is enforcement, and not just at the border. But the same Wall Street Journal story with the headline about Obama bolstering the border reported he will make at least minor adjustments to deportation policy later this summer that would shield some illegal immigrants from deportation with his base agitating for even more farreaching action. For the left, and its fellow-travelers in the business community and on the libertarian right, there is only one side of the split screen that matters. Its always amnesty. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. Nomads of the digital ageThe freedom to communicate and to share has entered a new era. The power promised by this freedom, by the Internet, is immense, so much so that it frightens entrenched institutions. Governments, militaries, corporations, banks: They all stand to lose the control they exert over society when information they suppress runs free. Yet some of the most ardent advocates for the free Internet have become targets of these very institutions, forced to live on the run, in exile or, in some cases, in prison. Julian Assange is perhaps one of the most recognized figures in the fight for transparency and open communication. He founded the website WikiLeaks in 2007 to provide a safe, secure means to leak electronic documents. In 2010, WikiLeaks released a shocking video taken from a U.S. military attack helicopter, in which at least 12 civilians are methodically machine-gunned to death in New Baghdad, a neighborhood of Baghdad, Iraq. Two of those killed were Reuters journalists. Throughout the massacre, the Army radio transmissions are heard, a combination of grimly sterile orders to engage the victims and a string of mocking exchanges among the soldiers, belittling the victims and celebrating the slaughter. On the heels of the videos publication, WikiLeaks provided three more major document releases, with hundreds of thousands of classified documents, from official U.S. military communications about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, which allowed direct research into, for example, the scale of civilian casualties in those wars. WikiLeaks also revealed hundreds of thousands of U.S. State Department cables, exposing dark, cynical realities of U.S. diplomacy. The secret cables are credited with fueling the Arab Spring, especially the overthrow of the corrupt, U.S.-supported regime in Tunisia. While the WikiLeaks website managed to protect the identity of the source of these remarkable leaks, an FBI informant pointed the finger at a U.S. soldier, Pvt. Bradley Manning. Serving in U.S. military intelligence in Iraq, Manning was frustrated with U.S. military abuses. He allegedly copied the trove of files and delivered them to WikiLeaks. Manning was arrested and thrown into solitary confinement, in conditions the United Nations labeled torture. Manning was court-martialed. After conviction and sentencing to 35 years in an Army prison, Manning announced his intention to transition to a woman, and formally changed her name to Chelsea Manning. One month ago, Manning wrote in an opinion piece in The New York Times, I believe that the current limits on press freedom and excessive government secrecy make it impossible for Americans to grasp fully what is happening in the wars we finance. WikiLeaks investigations editor Sarah Harrison is British but now lives in Berlin. When Edward Snowden leaked his trove of National Security Agency documents in Hong Kong, Harrison flew there. She and WikiLeaks provided key assistance to Snowden as he made his way to political asylum in Russia. Harrison is concerned that if she returns to her native England, she will be arrested. I caught up with her in Bonn, Germany, where she told me: Britain has a Terrorism Act, which has within it a portion called Schedule 7, which is quite unique ... it gives officials the ability to detain people at the border as they go in or out or even transit through the country. This allows them to question people on no more than a hunch, giving them no right to silence, no right to a lawyer. Also in Berlin is U.S. citizen Laura Poitras, the first journalist to respond to Snowden in his efforts to leak the NSA documents. She convinced Glenn Greenwald to travel with her to Hong Kong, launching the Snowden era in U.S. national-security reporting. Poitras had already been detained and aggressively questioned many times on entering the United States, very likely for her unflinching exposes on the U.S. nationalsecurity system. Greenwald, a U.S. citizen, chooses to live in Brazil. Since the Snowden revelations, on advice of his lawyers, he avoided visiting his home country. Poitras and Greenwald finally did return to the U.S. to collect the prestigious George Polk Award for their journalism. Three days later, they were part of the teams at The Guardian and The Washington Post that won the Pulitzer Prize. Then there is Edward Snowden. He has been charged with espionage for making one of the largest and most significant leaks in U.S. history, which has sparked a global debate around surveillance, privacy and the national-security state. This weekend, The Guardian published an interview with Hillary Clinton. She said Snowden should return to the United States, where he could mount a vigorous legal and public defense. The day after, I asked Julian Assange what he thought. He replied: The U.S. government decided to smash Chelsea Manning absolutely smash her to send a signal to everyone: Dont you ever think about telling people whats really going on inside the U.S. military and its abuses. And they tried to smash also the next most visible person and visible organization, which was WikiLeaks, to get both ends the source end and the publishing end. I interviewed Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been holed up for the past two years. Ecuador has granted him political asylum, but he fears that if he steps foot out of the embassy, he will ultimately be extradited to the United States, landing him in a U.S. prison for years to come for his work with WikiLeaks. At the heart of his case, and of so many others, is the question of whether the Internet will remain a free and open platform for communication, or a commodity controlled by a few corporations, censored and surveilled by the U.S. national-security apparatus.

PROFILES IN PARADISEUnited Arts Council chief has sights set on next adventureElaine Hamilton is counting down the days to her retirement as executive director of the United Arts Council of Collier County. For 11 years, she has overseen all aspects of operations and services at the umbrella agency that serves more than 60 arts organizations on the Paradise Coast. Her successor takes over in midAugust (see page A7), and Ms. Hamilton will be on hand for a month or so to ease the transition. After that, she says, shes looking forward to relaxing and also to getting involved in other aspects of life in Naples, which she has called home since 1998. Throughout her tenure with the UAC, Ms. Hamilton has passionately pursued the organizations mission to enrich lives and strengthen the community through the p ower of the arts. A native of Tennessee, she earned a degree in marketing, advertising and public relations from the University of Maryland. Her marketing career spanned positions in seven states over 20 years, including vice president of marketing for an international franchise company. She has also worked as a writer, with articles appearing in national magazines and local newspapers. Prior to coming to Florida, she served as chairman of the board of directors for the March of Dimes foundation in Washington, D.C., and on the boards of numerous charities and community organizations in Maryland, California, Michigan and Indiana. For several years after her arrival in Naples, she worked as executive director for a local trade association. Prior to joining the UAC, she owned a public relations and marketing consulting firm. Under her leadership, the UAC has increased both its membership and its event revenue by more than 400 percent, and general donations have increased by more than 200 percent. The organization introduced its Stars in the Arts awards program in 2005 and Celebrate the Arts Month (every November) in 2006. The UAC keeps the community informed with its website and a monthly published calendar of arts events. As she looks forward to discovering new aspects of her community as a retiree, Ms. Hamilton has a firm foundation built on years of involvement in numerous organizations. A Rotarian and a member of the Public Relations Society of America, she has served on the board of directors for the Literacy Council of the Gulf Coast, the Bonita Springs Assistance Office and the Community Foundation of Bonita Springs. She has volunteered on the grant committees for the Education Foundation of Collier County and for the Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades Convention & Visitors Bureau, for which she also chaired the Cultural Tourism Task Force. She has served on the marketing committee for the Downtown Naples Association and has been a board member for the Collier County Lodging & Tourism Alliance. She is a member of the board of directors of Planned Parenthood of Collier County and proudly supports St. Matthews House and the Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 nuzzled against her as she gathered utensils and smiled at guests who began to arrive for dinner on a recent balmy Friday evening. She gave a quick scan of the clock on the wall as she prepared the table. Not much longer. In about 10 minutes the sun would slide from view and she would be ready to usher in Gods day of rest. As the woman of her home, its Mrs. Labkowskis spiritual duty to usher in the Sabbath as well as the guests who will partake of the holy time period. In Judaism the Sabbath, or Shabbat in Hebrew, is a day of rest, prayer and time with loved ones. The Sabbath begins on Friday at sunset and ends on Saturday after sunset. For Mrs. Labkowski, 33, who helps run the Cape Coral Chabad Jewish Center with her husband, religious leader Rabbi Yossi Labkowski, 35, the Sabbath is a central part of her faith. Observing and sharing the Sabbath with family, friends and members of the community is an important tenet in the Jewish religion. Mrs. Labkowski is a young woman who loves to spend time with her family, friends and loved ones. She battles the usual life-balancing challenges of working in her fulfilling but demanding position as program director of the Chabad movement center in Cape Coral. She does this while raising three young children and supporting her husband in his religious duties and mission. She works through unique situations in living in a predominantly non-Jewish area. She must cook all of her familys meals since there is not a kosher restaurant in the area. Fashion wise, the pretty woman abides by the Hasidic Jewish modesty standard (Hasidic Judaism is a branch of Orthodox Judaism.) This means that on hot Southwest Florida days she wears her stylish long skirts and nylon stockings. But though Mrs. Labkowskis lifestyle is a bit different than the mainstream in Southwest Florida, the easygoing woman is not fazed. She chats about the fact that she shops at many of the same clothing shops as the non-observant and tailors her selections to fit her needs. And what about the lack of kosher food and dining out choices? No big deal. Though Mrs. Labkowski cannot grab a quick bite at a local food joint, she does get a break from cooking by stocking up on frozen kosher pizzas. To Mrs. Labkowski her life is no different then when she lived in her Orthodox Montreal and Brooklyn, N.Y., communities. She considers her life and work in Southwest Florida a blessing and strives to unite and connect with residents in her community and beyond. Through an inventory of programs she has developed at the Chabad, she invites those Jewish and not to learn about the rich culture and spirituality of Judaism. Her very presence creates an opportunity for the non-observant and non-Jewish to learn and expand their understanding of a culture and way of life different than their own. Mrs. Labkowski said she understands that many of their traditions and customs such as donning wigs and wearing modest clothing might seem different to others, but she welcomes the questions. This sometimes means dealing with rude or unkind comments. But Mrs. Labkowski relies on her calm demeanor and deep-rooted beliefs and sense of love and spirituality to guide her in all matters. We try to teach and explain, she said. The only way to fight the darkness is with light.Several months ago, I met Mrs. Labkowski during a function that I was videotaping for an ongoing project. The event an evening with Anne Franks stepsister Eva Schloss drew a sizeable crowd to the Westin Hotel in Cape Coral. At the event I marveled at the men dressed in long black coats, long, full beards and tall hats. At first I was taken aback by the mens refusal to shake my hand in friendship and salutation. But I soon understood that married men do not share physical contact with any women other than their wives. The bond is that special and sacred. I became intrigued. Then I saw Mrs. Labkowski and the other Hasidic and Orthodox women. They were all beautiful, modestly dressed but stylish and to my wonder serene and content. Throughout the evening, I watched Mrs. Labkowski help her husband, Rabbi Yossi Labkowski, run the event. Their sense of purpose and togetherness endeared and inspired. A mix of reporter inquisitiveness or perhaps a rumbling from my own dormant Jewish heritage buried under a lifetime of living a secular way of life began to awaken. I hungered to learn more about Mrs. Labkowski and the life she led. I chatted with Mrs. Labkowski and we agreed to meet up and talk. After a lively conversation, I found myself liking Mrs. Labkowski as one would a chum or girlfriend. I found her to be funny, witty and interesting, deepminded and kind. As we laughed and chatted away, I found we shared much in common. It surprised me a bit given our very different way of life. She leads a structured, pious life of purpose and mission and I live a colorful more Mark Twain sort of existence She is Jewish in every way possible. I am Jewish in heritage and DNA. This is not to say I have not observed and celebrated many of the holy days or traditions but I am far from an observant Torah-following Jew. With a bit of trepidation I share this about myself to Mrs. Labkowski. She just laughs and says its fine. She invites me to an upcoming Sabbath dinner at her home in Cape Coral. I agree to go. As the last rays of the sun begin to fade into violet and marmalade hues, Mrs. Labkowski fits the Sabbath candles in the holders. She and fellow member of the faith Chavah Krakow chat before the candles are lit and the Sabbath begins. Ms. Krakow, a 41-year-old nurse, is a convert of three years to the faith. She is observant and devoted. When asked if she misses the freedom of her former secular and non-Jewish way of life she says no. I think when you live with the basics you get a little more clarity, she said. Ms. Krakows face beamed in a wide smile as she shared details of her new life as an observant Jew. The Sabbath itself is a time of reflection and togetherness. This means no work is to be done. The use of cars, phones, computers and any other electronics or machinery that make work possible are forbidden. They distract from the holy day of rest. To the nonobservant, this way of life can seem challenging and baffling. But to Mrs. Labkowski, the Sabbath is a time of joy and bonding with family and friends. It does seem very difficult and restricting, she said. But once you start keeping them (the Jewish religious laws) you wonder how did I live without this? During the evening there are no phones beeping or ringing. It brings peace to the home and the family, she said. Its quality time. Its really what keeps the family together. During the Sabbath period, family and friends come together, chat and play board games. Mrs. Labkowski looks again at the clock. Her husband Rabbi Labkowski, her 5-year-old son Mendel and a few other observant male guests attending the evening Sabbath dinner will be arriving back from religious services at the Chabad. The men will make the fewminutes walk back to the home since the use of motor vehicles is not allowed. Mrs. Labkowski sets the fresh-made braided Challah bread under a religious cover. The bread symbolizes the manna that the Jews subsisted on during their 40-year exodus in the desert. As she works, Mrs. Labkowski discusses fashion and wigs with Ms. Krakow. Observant Hasidic Jewish women must cover their heads upon marriage, donning wigs and wearing modest clothing. Wearing modest apparel is part of keeping the marriage special and sacred, Mrs. Labkowski said. A woman gets fitted for a wig once married. Womens hair, considered sensual and alluring, is supposed to be only meant for the husbands viewing. For Ms. Krakow, getting used to bundling her long blonde hair under a wig was difficult at first, but now it liberates. She swished a few strands of her lush, blonde wig to show how freely the hair moves. Youre still supposed to be attractive, she said with a chuckle. Mrs. Labkowski pointed out the reasoning behind the modest clothing and use of wigs. Our bodies are precious and holy, she said.The idea of stuffing my long, wavy hair into a wig did not appeal at first. Restrictions on this freedom-loving soul send shivers down my spine. Growing up in a culture and society that encourages individuality and expression of sexual attractiveness makes the idea of covering up and concealing myself unappealing. But after peppering Mrs. Labkowski and Ms. Krakow with questions and queries I started to see a different picture than at first. What I viewed as inhibiting and restrictive they saw as freeing and enhancing to their marriages. And then I broached the sensitive subject of the ritual mikvah. A mikvah is a holy purity cleaning. Observant Orthodox Jewish women of Hasidic sects dip themselves in a ritual bath after their menstruation period. A ritual often shrouded in mystery is considered a special time for women in observance. It is the water and spiritual cleansing known as the mikvah that helps women experience a special intimacy with the Divine and their spouses. The immersion is sort of like going to a spa and being indulged and pampered. For local women who partake of the ritual bath, a mikvah is available at Chabad Lubavitch of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers. Its very spiritual, Mrs. Labkowski said. During the waiting period while a woman is menstruating there is no physical contact between husband FAITHFrom page 1 ELLA NAYOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYRivky Labkowski puts the finishing touches on the dinner table before Shabbat dinner. About ChabadChabad, also known as Habad, Lubavitch and Chabad-Lubavitch, is a major movement within mainstream Jewish tradition with its roots in the Chassidic movement of the 18th century. Chabad, founded in Russia during the late 1700s, adheres to the Orthodox practice of Judaism. Chabad is one of the worlds largest and bestknown Hasidic movements. Source: Chabad.orgFacts and myths about Chabad Orthodox JudaismAre Chabad Lubavitch programs only for the Orthodox? The af liated?Chabad is inclusive and non-judgmental, and programs are open to all Jews. In fact, the majority of people who participate in programs at Chabad are not Orthodox. The teachings of Chabad are imbued with the renowned Chassidic spirit and joy, but in no way is the commitment to an Orthodox lifestyle a prerequisite to ones acceptance at Chabad functions.Does Chabad consider Reform, Conservative, or non-practicing Jews as real Jews?Chabad avoids labeling Jews. Judaism has traditionally considered anyone born of a Jewish mother or converted in accordance with Jewish Law to be a Jew, regardless of his or her degree of observance. The Lubavitcher Rebbe delivered a stinging rebuke to Orthodox elements in the USA and Israel for publicly belittling non-Orthodox Jews.Do women occupy a secondary position in Chabad philosophy?Different, yes. Secondary? No. The high standing of Jewish women in Chabad is central to the survival of Judaism. As the cornerstone of Jewish family life, the woman can attain a profound and meaningful spirituality, one that ful lls her deepest needs and aspirations, opening fresh perspectives on self-understanding, growth and Torah knowledge. Ignorance, misconceptions and outright myths about Jewish women have prevailed until very recently, turning many people away from an appreciation of Torah and a traditional Jewish lifestyle. Chabad is working to correct those misconceptions. Source: http://www.chabadoftampabay.com

I was taken aback at first. I wondered how a married couple could remain in the same home and not touch each other. But the ladies answers intrigued me. They both gushed about the power of separation and how it enhances romance and the marital bond. Rituals aside, perhaps what drew my attention more was the closeness and joy shared between the two friends. Their subdued outfits and behavior outside the home lie in contrast to these beautiful open women in touch with their selves and their husbands. Not that this revelation made me want to change my appearance or submit to a monthly ritual bath but it did inspire me to see the Orthodox Jewish culture through a different, more open set of eyes. In the end, it made me think. There is more than one universal truth to attaining joy and freedom within each other and us.Dusk has settled and the Sabbath is now here. Mrs. Labkowski and Ms. Krakow gather around a silver candelabrum. It is tradition for the observant women to light the candles and usher in the Sabbath. Soon the candles flicker and dance a golden hue on the counter. Not long after, Mrs. Labkowskis husband, son and other men arrive. At this point, phones have been turned off and writing utensils put away. Rabbi Labkowski begins a prayer over the Challah bread and sweet red wine. Guests gather and sip the wine. They eat hunks of the soft, doughy bread. Prayers are read and recited. After the prayers, there is a hand washing purification ritual and then dinner is served on large platters. During dinner conversation, discussion and a sense of joy of being together seems to felt by the guests. Rabbi Labkowski fields questions and shares stories. He takes breaks from discussion to play with his young son seated in a stroller next to him. Mrs. Labkowski and the other women attending the Sabbath dinner pass dishes and plates of food to everyone. Without the interference of incoming texts, voicemail or phone calls, the guests bond with each other. Instead of blings, pings and faces pointed at devices, the sound of laughter and chatter fills the air. People look at each other and carry on conversations. At first my nerves jangled, as dinner was about to begin. Yes, I am Jewish but more in name than in action. My parents raised me with the main traditions of the faith Passover Seders, celebrating Rosh Hashanah or the Jewish New Year, observing Yom Kippur and lighting the menorah on Chanukah. But that was essentially it. I grew up in a non-Jewish section of Long Island, N.Y. where most of my friends and schoolmates were Catholic. We didnt observe the Sabbath or attend services in a synagogue. The only times I had stepped foot in a synagogue was for my cousins bat mitzvah and my great uncles funeral. The idea of going to an observant Jewish home and appearing ignorant at the various rituals was a bit daunting. But I had grown to like Mrs. Labkowski and wanted to experience her way of life. How else can we learn about each other and gain better understanding of not just them but ourselves if we dont extend ourselves past our comfort zones? At first I was shaky. But Rivky took me under her protective wing and guided me through the rituals and prayers. I even found that I knew a few of the Hebrew words from prayers my father would say during our in-home holiday observances. My nerves calmed as a yummy dinner of chicken with raisins, matzo ball soup and assorted sweets was dished out. And the lack of cell phones or other communication devices made it easy to chat and connect with the Labkowskis and their guests. We learned details about each others lives details that we never would have known with the presence of phones, social media and the Internet. At the end of the evening on my drive home I left the radio off. I wanted to let the peace and joy of the Sabbath continue.A few days after the Sabbath dinner Mrs. Labkowski came to the Starbucks coffee shop to discuss more details about living as an Orthodox Jewish woman and helping run a religious facility. She asked the woman behind the counter for a plastic cup of water since the restaurant is not considered kosher. The laws of the Torah or Gods holy covenant and laws for the Jewish people dictate every bit of Mrs. Labkowskis life from the food she eats to the clothes she wears. Faith is what drives this young woman to teach, nurture and support members of the Southwest Florida community. She and her husband pour their passion and zeal for the Torah and God into service at the 10-year-old Chabad. The Jewish center acts as a refuge and attracts Jews of all backgrounds and affiliations. Mrs. Labkowski and the rabbi act as emissaries for the Chabad movement of Hassidic Judaism. Their divine mission is to create a place of love, learning and light for Jews within the community. And this she does. On a regular basis, the mother of three young children prepares kosher meals for family and friends. She teaches children and creates programs for the Chabad. And when she isnt attending to home, teaching or program director duties, she is the soft shoulder and ear for other women in need of comfort or advice. I am a chef, social worker, daughter, she said. I wear many hats. Mrs. Labkowski will often meet with other women for coffee to chat. But though at first glance her workload might make one sigh, the cheery, energetic Mrs. Labkowski just shrugs. To her its not work its a labor truly born of love. And to Mrs. Labkowski, faith in the nearly 6,000-year-old religion steeped in tradition and rituals is the ultimate love. Learning and understanding how Mrs. Labkowski lives her life shines a light on the culture of observant Orthodox Jews. Mrs. Labkowski said there a few hundred who attend the Chabad in Cape Coral. She and her husband came to Southwest Florida to be a sort of outpost and beacon of light for Jews in the area. Though they are that, they also are unique members of the community. Mrs. Labkowski said she fields questions on a regular basis about appearance and customs. She said they draw attention as they walk to services on Saturday. Most people are curious and interested. Kids wave to us, she said. Living in an area without a large Jewish population is peppered with challenges like finding kosher food but is rich with opportunities to meet new people. For Mrs. Labkowski, her modest appearance or more structured lifestyle does not seem to impair her connections with others who are not Jewish. I always find something in common with everyone, she said, We dont believe in labels: we believe in people. And as far as fitting with young women her age? Not an issue for the cheery woman. It matters not to her if others are wearing shorts and T-shirts. I dont feel deprived, she said. I dont feel restricted. She views questions and the occasional bigoted comment as an opportunity to teach and enlighten. She shares a view of oneness rather than that of separation and difference. We are really one big family, she said. hChkhBh kowskis and their gu details about each o details that we ne ve known with the p re social media and t h end of the evening o I left the radio off.

Last week, pier fishers were hauling in mackerel to eat, tarpon for sport, catfish for bait, stingrays by accident, and a lot more. There are bursts of actions, but mostly its the in-between times, long afternoons and evenings, that set a meditative pace. Here are five Southwest Florida piers and the people who fish there, from green gulf waters along the coasts of Collier and Lee counties inland to the dark, brackish Myakka River in Port Charlotte.Naples PierManuel Lacroix, who lives in Belgium, brings chocolates every year for his friends on the Naples Pier. Mr. Lacroix, who has Carpe Diem tattooed across his back, does indeed seize the day when it comes to fishing. He headed immediately for the Naples Pier when he arrived in town last Wednesday on the yearly vacation he takes with his wife and son. Reaching about 1,000 feet into the gulf, it is one of the areas oldest, originating in the late 19th century as a freight and passenger dock. Populated by visitors and locals alike, the pier, stretching off the west end of 12th Avenue South, it is a community all its own. It includes a bait shop with snacks and a shady cabana at the end. Mr. Lacroix favors it because you dont need a fishing license (the city buys a bulk one) and because the people are very kind. Ben Wilson, who is 18, had come to the pier on his day off from working at a restaurant. He was using a Subiki rig (multiple hooks on a line) to catch baitfish. When it comes down to fishing its just all about fun, he said. Frank Vitiello, a long-time member of the pier community who often helps other fishermen like Mr. Lacroix or Mr. Wilson, has been coming here since the 1970s. His father was a barber from Naples, Italy, who escaped to Brooklyn after being forced to fight for the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, against the U.S., in World War II. For years, after moving here from Brooklyn, he and his brothers ran a barbershop along U.S. 41 in Naples. Mr. Vitiello used to shine shoes there at his fathers shop (long since closed). Currently, hes enjoying tarpon season. Mr. Vitiello caught one off the pier that weighed 40 to 60 pounds, he estimated, the night before. Theres nothing like getting a nice big tarpon on your hook, he said. When you have something pulling out your line and you cant stop it thats what Im here for. Theres an exhilaration you cant get anywhere else. Lynn Hall Memorial Park pierA few dozen people fished from the T at the end of the pier at Lynn Hall Park, usually called the Fort Myers Beach pier. That included 13-year-old Samuel Maholick. He was there with his grandfather, Tony Maholick, and younger brother Calvin all of them from Pennsylv ania but Samuel is the fishing guru of the three, his grandfather said. He has caught sea trout and snapper off the pier, as well as a stingray, on past trips. One last cast, Sam, his grandfather called out. Before it was over, Sam stepped over to help a young man with a catfish hed caught, easing a hook out of its mouth with a pair of pliers. I find it a good way to pass time, he said of fishing. And its really exciting, too, if you catch one. Inside Rudys Treasure Chest, the bait and gift shop halfway down the 600-foot pier, a wall of pictures provide proof of the redfish, pompano, snook, sharks and more caught here. You dont need a fishing license if you stay on the pier, which is already licensed by Lee County. And incoming tide is the best time to fish, said the shops owner, John Scanlon. Gilchrist Park pier By 6 p.m. the heat had broken in Punta Gorda, replaced by a peaceful softness. Groups of joggers began to appear in the park. Charlotte Harbor water lapped at the seawall. Three people stood at the end of the pier fishing. One man who didnt speak English referred to the other two: Ashli Sinnott, 16, and Patrick Burns, 17. A couple now for three years, Ms. Sinnott and Mr. Burns often come to the pier, near a statue of Ponce de Leon, to fish. Bayshore Fishing PierOn the other side of the harbor, in Port Charlotte, at least three piers offer vantage points. The one in Bayshore Live Oak Park includes automatic lights that come on near nightfall. At low tide, crab traps were visible in the flat monotone water. A man fished by himself. Mullet were jumping. Im just sittin out here enjoying and talking to the good Lord, he said. Its peaceful, quiet time. On some nights he brings a blanket and fishes all night. He was using shrimp as bait but he used to use hot dogs. A 99-cent pack would last all day, he said, sipping a Bud Light. He added, I dont care if I catch anything, as long as I could catch a buzz. El Jobean PierThe sunset was unusually subdued, anticlimactic, as a mournful bluegrass ballad drifted from the old 1922 Post Office and General Store now a caf and bait shop that sits near the El Jobean Pier. Its open Tuesday through Sunday about noon to 9 p.m., with bluegrass on Wednesday nights. Sometimes people bring in fillets of fish they caught on the pier and for a reasonable fee cook Mark Sweeney is happy to prepare it for them. The pier is parallel to Route 776 where it crosses the Myakka River in Port Charlotte. Dillon Gray, who is 13 and visiting from Birmingham, Ala., had secured a spot at the end of the pier while waiting for friends to join him. The night before they had caught a goliath grouper, he said. He would catch smaller catfish for bait, then injure or cut off their tails to make them easier targets for more desirable fish. Catfish dont taste good out of the saltwater but the stuff you can get from catfish is pretty good, he said. A woman named Norma and a boy named Dylan (last names withheld) had been there since 5:30 p.m. and planned to stay until midnight. They were hoping to catch snappers, speckled trout, snook or flounder. We fish for keepers, she said. FISHINGFrom page 1EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Naples Pier attracts many looking to fish.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 A15 NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATERocking MessiahProminent theoretical chemist David Glowacki was ejected from a classical music concert at Englands Bristol Old Vic in June for disrupting a performance of Handels Messiah by attempting to crowd-surf in front of the stage. Dr. Glowacki, an expert in non-equilibrium molecular reaction dynamics and who is presently a visiting scientist at Stanford University, was attending a special informal performance at which audience members were encouraged to stand and cheer loudly instead of showing the usual demure appreciation. He said afterward that he could not control himself when the performance moved to the Hallelujah Chorus. Cultural diversity A formal-dress rental store in Fukui, Japan, with a side business making keepsake portraits of client brides, was surprised at the number of men who began requesting a similar service to be outfitted just like the women, in wedding gowns and other frills. In fact, just as women expect full makeup and hairstyling for their portraits, so, too, do the men. The store, Marry Mariee, charges the equivalent of about $400 ($600 on weekends). Said the manager, We want to provide opportunities for people to enjoy showing their real selves, whether they are men or women. Paid time off of work for women experiencing brutal menstrual periods is not yet guaranteed in U.S. law, but it is a staple of workplace rights in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Indonesia, according to a May report by The Atlantic (although in Indonesia, women report that some employers require on-the-scene proof of condition; Japans policy has been in place for over 60 years). However, concluded The Atlantic, the policies are based less on rights of workers than on the scientifically dubious notion that stressing females during menses will result in difficult future childbirths. Parental fear of having raised girls and boys who will never marry, plus Chinas boy-heavy gender imbalance, have provoked the government to fund a series of matchmaking conventions to create opportunities and incentives for matrimony. However, because of widespread disinterest by singles, many of the attendees at the recent Shanghai Matchmaking Expo were parents touting their kids credentials to other unmarrieds. A dispatch from Vice.com reported notice boards full of cards (resembling baseball trading cards) and makeshift posters attached to umbrellas, reciting age, education and salary. Success of the expos was hard to predict, wrote Vice, because (as is so often the case with social mixers) many singles passed the time in silence, and many desirable candidates were no-shows. San Franciscos activist board of supervisors, among the boldest in the country to rid their cities of obnoxious goods and services, added disposable plastic water bottles to the list in March (to join circumcision, plastic shopping bags and nutritionchallenged Happy Meals that contain toys). The water bottle vote was unanimous (covering distribution on city-controlled property), compared to the cliff-hanging 2012 vote (6-5), in which the board finally decided to ban unclothed people from the streets (mostly men, of course), where until then some freely wandered downtown sidewalks stark naked. Democracy in action Jordan Haskins, 24, is Michigan Republicans best hope for the open state House seat in Saginaw in November, but he is burdened by a teenage past of being young and stupid, he told the Saginaw News in June. Mr. Haskins has been in prisons in two states (and is still on parole) stemming from trespassing and breaking-and-entering charges yearly from 2006 to 2011 most involving vehicles he used for sex (by himself). (He admits to cranking, in which he would remove spark plug wires and try to start the car, pleasuring himself while watching the sparks and listening to the noise.) I was in a messed-up state of mind, mentally and emotionally, he said, but now is proud of the man he has become. You may not respect my policies (or) my ideas, but you at least have to respect me as a person. Congressional candidate Tim Murray handily lost Junes primary election (82 percent to 5 percent) in Oklahomas 3rd District to incumbent U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas, but he did not give up. In a rambling letter to KFORTV in Oklahoma City, Mr. Murray accused Lucas of being a bodydouble for Lucas, since it is widely known that the real Frank Lucas was executed by order of the World Court in southern Ukraine in January 2011. Mr. Lucas, asked for a comment, told the station, It does come as kind of a shock to read that (Im) not (me). The county Association of Governments in Phoenix notified Diane DD Barker recently that she could continue to address association meetings as a community activist, but was to cease introducing her remarks by performing cartwheels, as she apparently has done several times in the past. Ms. Barker, a 65-year-old former Ohio State University cheerleader, said she seeks to demonstrate the value of exercise and public transportation, but agreed to hold off on the cartwheels. Officials at a town meeting in Oxford, Mass., on May 7 were considering whether the municipality should take back its water system from the current owner, Aquarion, when suddenly a fire alarm sounded, resulting in a delay that eventually worked to Aquarions benefit. Later that month, Oxford police charged William Malloy Jr., 57, with pulling the false alarm. Mr. Malloy is a lobbyist for Aquarion, and a Worcester Telegram & Gazette report of the meeting suggests that causing the meeting to run into the early hours of May 8 helped Aquarion garner the necessary votes to prevent the buyback.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 HEALTHY LIVINGUF research finds association between certain pain relievers and heart attack THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA For women taking certain kinds of pain relievers, a heart attack could be waiting in their medicine cabinets. A University of Florida study has found that the regular use of some non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and death in postmenopausal women. The study was published in the most recent issue of the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes. The researchers found that regular use of the NSAID naproxen, the active ingredient in medications such as Aleve, is associated with a 10 percent increased risk of heart attack, stroke and death in postmenopausal women, according to the studys lead author, UF cardiologist Anthony Bavry. Regular use was defined as at least twice per week for the previous two weeks. That is counter to the medical communitys perception of NSAIDs, in which most people believe naproxen to be safer, Dr. Bavry says. Our study showed naproxen was not safer it was actually harmful. Dr. Bavry, in collaboration with researchers from Harvard and other universities, combed through data from more than 160,000 postmenopausal women who were surveyed as part of the Womens Health Initiative, a 15-year research study funded by the National Institutes of Health. Of these women, 53,142 regularly used NSAIDs. Even after controlling for obesity, hypertension, diabetes, use of aspirin and other health factors, the researchers found the increased risk for heart attack, stroke or death among the women who used certain types of NSAIDs. One of the studys co-authors, Dr. Marian Limacher, has been the UF principal investigator for the Womens Health Initiative since 1994. She emphasizes that the study was observational in nature, which helped the researchers find associations between use of NSAIDs and cardiovascular impacts. Dr. Limacher also notes that this was the first study of its size to examine the effects of regular NSAID use on women. When we study agents such as aspirin, we have found differential effects in men and women, she says. Men had reduction in heart attack, and older women had a reduction in stroke but not heart attack, which is part of the reason those of us studying women feel we really need to have adequate information on commonly used drugs for both men and women. NSAIDs include over-the-counter medications such as naproxen and ibuprofen as well as prescription drugs such as rofecoxib (commercially branded as Vioxx) and celecoxib (branded as Celebrex). Because of its association with increased risk of heart attack or stroke, Vioxx was taken off the market in 2004. The studys main finding confirmed that the regular use of any NSAID was associated with harm such as digestive bleeding. Although it found for the first time that the risk of heart attack, stroke or death was associated with the use of naproxen, the study found no cardiovascular or stroke harm associated with ibuprofen. NSAIDs work by inhibiting two enzymes responsible for inflammation, called cox-1 and cox-2. They also can cause bleeding in the stomach and digestive tract. NSAIDs that target just the cox-2 enzyme, which is present mainly at the site of inflammation, are designed to prevent bleeding in the digestive tract, Dr. Bavry says. However, previous studies showed that NSAIDs that solely target the cox-2 enzyme (which include Vioxx and Celebrex) have been associated with adverse cardiovascular events such as heart attack or stroke. Dr. Bavry thinks the culprit in naproxen is also cox-2 inhibition. People will have to think about what they have in their own medicine cabinet, he adds. Do they have naproxen, ibuprofen or something else? The study looked only at the association between cardiovascular events and use of NSAIDs not the effects of NSAIDs on the kidneys, for example. We would encourage patients to use medications for as short a time as they need, Dr. Limacher says. Improving patient care through advances in technologyThree years ago, NCH became the first health-care system in Southwest Florida to be named to Hospitals & Health Networks Healthcare Most Wired list. This week we rejoined the list for the third consecutive year, one of only 20 Florida hospitals and 428 (or 8.5 percent) of the nations 5,000 hospitals. For 16 years this survey has recognized hospitals that have created robust clinical information systems to improve patient care. Success metrics considered by the survey include adopting technologies to improve documentation, advance clinical decision support and evidence-based protocols, reduce the likelihood of medication errors, and rapidly restore access to data in the case of disaster or outage. For the last two decades, NCH has consistently advanced its information technology profile, as we continue to lead our community to enjoying longer, happier, and healthier lives. Under the direction of COO and Acting CIO Phil Dutcher, and Jeff Dindak, Cerner IT Works client director, we have experienced an amazingly productive technology year. With our Cerner Corp. partner, the largest health care information technology company in the world, we have completed more than 50 significant projects linking clinical care, safety, quality, efficiency and, most important, adding value to our patients. Among the highlights of these innovations: We began a population health engagement program, encouraging individuals to communicate directly with providers from their homes via MyNCH Patient Portal. Up-to-date electronic health records are available securely and confidentially to patients. Enterprise analytics and quality reporting are digitally harvested so we can measure and improve continuously. Predictive modeling is next. We will be able to warn folks who are at risk, so that life-saving intervention may occur earlier. Well be installing more Smart Rooms, wirelessly connected to caregivers and the electronic health record, to improve patient education and satisfaction and enhance caregiving for nurses, physicians, and all those who care for hospitalized patients. Objective patient satisfaction measures show statistically significant improvement after Smart Rooms are in place. Quality and safety continue to improve as physician computer provider order entry (CPOE) rather than hand writing orders has now passed 90 percent. CPOE provides a safeguard to check for duplications, omissions, drug interactions, and allergies among other safety measures. A sepsis mortality prevention algorithm has been in place for over a year, proproviding for early recognition and prevention of blood infections. Last year, sepsis mortality dropped from over 30 percent to single digits, which translates into the statistical saving of 175 lives. Readmissions at NCH, within 30 days, stands at 8.6 percent. The national average is at 18.4 percent. As a consequence of this fine record, for the past two years NCH is the only hospital in Southwest Florida to escape a financial penalty due to excess readmissions. Admittedly, weve been pushing the technological limits, and this coming year we anticipate raising the bar further to become an all-digital integrated system. As the only recipient in Southwest Florida of a Leapfrog A grade and as a three-time Most Wired hospital, we cannot afford nor do we intend to rest on our laurels. allenWEISSallen.email@example.com A Cool Night Out Tue.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickDid you know? Thats always a great conversation starter, especially when its about our pet pals. Heres our contribution to your next water-cooler gathering, barbecue or cocktail party: 1. Cats rub on people, other cats and even other animals as a sign of affection. They may do it most insistently when we are about to feed them, but they also do it just to say, Hey, I like you. 2. In mythology and folklore around the world, dogs are associated with the afterlife. They were believed to act as guides to the underworld and howl as a warning of impending death. The jackalheaded Egyptian god Anubis was a protector of the dead. 3. If you want a long-lived pet, consider a bird or reptile. With good care, leopard geckos can live 20 to 30 years, and cockatoos and Amazon parrots can live an average of 50 years, with some living much longer. 4. Lionfish are popular to keep in aquariums, but if released into the ocean, they can wreak havoc on reefs, eating up other fish that are important to reef health. 5. According to a 2013 survey by the American Pet Products Association, 32 percent of dog owners take their pets with them in the car when they are away for two or more nights. 6. By the numbers, freshwater fish are the most popular American pet, with 145 million found in U.S. homes. If were talking mammals, cats are most numerous: They number 95.6 million. Dogs are nipping at their heels with 83.3 million. 7. Canine ergonomics is the study of how working dogs learn to traverse rubble and other environmental hazards or barriers, all the while using their noses and then indicating finds to their human teammates. 8. Nearly half of pet owners 45 percent buy presents for their dogs or cats for Christmas or Hanukkah, but only 20 percent celebrate a pets birthday with a gift, according to a 2013 survey by the APPA. 9. The color of a goldfish will fade without exposure to sunlight or full-spectrum artificial light. 10. Rabbits love to run and twist in the air, then land facing a different direction, an activity that rabbit lovers call binking. 11. Hamsters eat grains, greens, vegetables and fruits, plus the occasional insect or other form of protein. A good daily diet might include a tablespoon of commercial food, a few leaves of lettuce, spinach or other greens, a small, thin slice of apple, and a broccoli or cauliflower floret. 12. The word for the sound a cat makes is similar in many languages. In English, cats mew; in India, cats say myaus; in China, mio. In some Arabic-speaking countries, the word is naoua, and in Egypt its mau. 13. In no particular order, 10 of the most pet-friendly cities in the United States are Santa Fe, N.M.; Laguna Beach, Calif.; Portland, Oregon; Seattle; San Francisco; Boston; Colorado Springs, Colorado; San Diego; Charlotte, N.C.; and Austin, Texas. 14. Letting your dog give you kisses is probably less germy than letting a human lick your face, according to our veterinarian pal Dr. Patty Khuly, who practices in Miami. But skip playing kissy-face with your pooch if your immune system is compromised by illness or recent surgery. 15. The most popular reptiles kept as pets include red-eared slider turtles, ball pythons, iguanas, bearded dragons, corn snakes, Burmese pythons and redtail boas. 16. Kittens start out meowing at their mothers when they want to eat, but it doesnt take long for them to learn to meow at people for food or anything else they want! The bacteria in a dogs mouth are usually not the type to cause disease in people.16 interesting tidbits of trivia about dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, fish and reptiles Pets of the Week>> Java Jones Jangle is a neutered, 3-year-old basset hound/Rottweiler mix who will do best in home with experienced dog owners.>> Rusty Boy is a neutered 3-year-old wheaton who loves people.>> Silvermist is a spayed 6-year-old Siamese mix who has beautiful blue eyes.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 NEWS A23 THE DIVA DIARIESTheme park memories burned into my mindAs a relatively wee diva of 10, my dear parents took moi to Disney World. Hailing from Ohio, there were things we apparently didnt understand. Instead of sensible sneakers, I wore pink thongs (this was when thongs were SANDALS, not tiny underpants) each decorated with a big plastic pink flower (Mom had matching blue ones). It was summer, so we were all dressed accordingly in shorts and short-sleeved tops, but we didnt wear sunscreen (I dont even remember sunscreen being invented in the 70s, but I digress...). Back in Ohio, we never burned we got brown as berries and showed off our tan lines with pride. Even if sunscreen did happen to exist, we didnt think wed need it. Two hours of walking around the Magic Kingdom resulted in pink skin, quickly turning to red. Three hours in, and my thin rubber sandals had caused my feet to develop huge, painful blisters. My poor Dad carried his fifth-grade daughter on his back in the sun for as long as he could, but finally my parents had to rent a stroller for me. It was mortifying and I remember it like it was yesterday. Being wheeled around like a toddler, unable to walk and whining pathetically every time something touched my stinging skin. Still, we were not wealthy and my parents had saved and sacrificed for this trip, so we squeezed every nickel out of that $6 admission and we were determined to use each and every 90-cent E Ticket we had purchased so we stayed well after dark for the Electric Light Parade and left grimy, tired, sore and burnt. I do remember enjoying Its A Small World, though. My first theme park experience resonated with me so much that Ive returned only rarely since then and Ive only been to Busch Gardens once around 20 years ago. I liked that park very much because it handed out cold, delicious beer to guests. Im not even a beer drinker, but the gesture of free alcohol seems so nice and civilized, it makes me a fan. When my husband and I had the opportunity to go to Busch Gardens last Saturday, I was game. Todd loves peril and thrills, so he was in roller coaster heaven, somehow feeling joyous gratification by having his body propelled through the air at 70 mph whilst strapped to a metal cart secured only by ball bearings and magnets. Gaining pleasure from such insanity is something I shall never understand. Meanwhile, I truly enjoyed the log flume and was very courageous when I was splashed by water a little bit. I also rode the train. My favorite part was the Pantopia Grill where one can order a double margarita for almost $20, because when its in the blistering mid-90s outside and your clothes are sticking to your body and you (stupidly) wore flip-flops, and your plantar faciitis is flaring up with a vengeance, you do not CARE how much you pay for a strong, icy, adult beverage with salt on the rim. As I waited for Todd while he was willingly suspended upside down from 200 feet in the air and happily dropping at extreme speeds like a crazy person, I had my own fun people watching. Theme parks, I have concluded, have the best fashion parades anywhere. Did you know that there are some ladies who choose to wear black spandex pants to Busch Gardens? Well, there are. I saw one woman wearing an umbrella hat, which while ridiculous looking, was a very smart choice considering you can pretty much reach up and touch the sun in July in Florida. It was also interesting to note that its not a myth couples really and truly DO wear matching outfits to theme parks. Is it in case they lose each other in the crowd? Maybe theyre being ironic? I dont know, I only know that if one of my friends spot Todd and I doing that ever, they have my permission to stage an intervention. It was Summer Nights at Busch Gardens, which means its open late and there are fireworks and bands, and you can ride the rides in the dark, and while that sounds super fun and all, after seven hours, we were spent. My feet felt like they might fall right off and Todds lower back was finally protesting after speeding down inverted metal tracks while dangling precariously next to teenage children. So, when I told him I was ready to go back to the hotel, put an ice pack on my feet and enjoy a vodka drink, he replied, Sold. As we were exiting, if it had been 1976 and we were at Disney World, I assure you we would have gleefully handed any of our leftover E tickets to a young family from the Midwest along with a helpful tip to always remember sunscreen.

B8 THE ARTS MEAN BUSINESSIf youre going to advertise for more tourists, why not try to reach cultural tourists, because they spend more money when theyre here and will stay longer in the hotel rooms? That means more business for the community, and thats a very good thing. Elaine Hamilton, the United Arts Council of Collier CountyFOR THOSE WHO THINK THE ARTS ARE JUST fluff or frills and have no part in the serious world of business, those working in the arts have a message for you: Youre wrong. There are a new set of facts and figures to back them up. The Creative Industries report, conducted by Americans for the Arts, demonstrates just how economically vital the arts are to a community. Nationally, 750,453 businesses are involved in the creation or distribution of the arts, employing 3.1 million people. This represents 4.2 percent of all businesses in the United States and 2.1 percent of all its employees. Despite a reduction in the overall numbers of all U.S. businesses (arts and otherwise), the arts share of businesses and employment remained stable as a percentage of the national totals demonstrating that the Creative Industries are as resilient and durable as other sectors of the economy, the report says.

Of course you do. But if youre like most people in the workplace (be they leaders, front line workers or someone in the vast middle ground in between), you probably occasionally do (or not do) things that send the wrong signal. And that signal is, I dont care. This accidental carelessness is not surprising, according to Jon Gordon, the author of The Energy Bus, The No Complaining Rule and, his newest book The Carpenter: A Story About the Greatest Success Strategies of All. Were all so busy these days, Mr. Gordon says. In fact, were overwhelmed. And when were trying to survive, sometimes even the most wellmeaning among us dont realize how were coming across. The good news is that the more you care (and show you do), the more you stand out in a world where many dont. Caring is great for business. The even better news is that by making, say, 1 percent more effort and paying attention to the little things, you can transform your relationships and see your overall success skyrocket. Here, Mr. Gordon shines a spotlight on seven things that say to others, I dont care. And he offers advice on how you can reverse that perception: 1. You fail to touch base on projects Sure, youre busy, and sure, teammates and clients can always call you if they need an update. The problem, Mr. Gordon says, is that when people dont hear from you, they naturally assume the worst: I just know he hasnt done what he said hed do. Or, I bet shes only doing the bare minimum. When you dont proactively reach out to provide information and updates, it seems as though you dont care. The solution is simple: Touch base often, he says. Dont force your colleague to ask if youve finished compiling those statistics, for instance; send an email saying youve done so. Actually, its a good idea to get into the habit of sending daily or weekly updates. 2. You wait too long to respond to calls or emails Often, hours or days pass before you reply to a colleague or clients questions. And sometimes, enough time passes that responding completely slips your mind. You may not think a slow response is a big deal, but the other person probably does, Mr. Gordon notes. Even if you truly dont have time to deal with the matter immediately, its easy enough to send a text or email saying, I got your message and will touch base later. Try not to leave any unanswered emails or voicemails overnight. 3. You forget customer preferences Part of providing good service is remembering that Mr. Smith dislikes being called on his cell phone after 6 p.m., and that Mrs. Jones always wants to work with a specific vendor. When you dont keep records of these things, customers will conclude that they dont matter to you, notes Mr. Gordon. Keep a file on each client, and take a few moments to record their preferences after each interaction. 4. You nickel and dime them Yes, you and your customers know that your relationship is based on an exchange of money for goods or services. And of course you shouldnt allow yourself to be taken advantage of. But obsessively keeping track of every minute and every coin doesnt sit well with clients. It makes them think your first priority is not taking care of them, but getting everything thats owed to you.Try to balance the bills you send against the long-term value of your client relationships, advises Mr. Gordon. For instance, if you spend an extra hour or two outside your contract, consider not itemizing that time on your next bill. The customer will likely sing your praises and send you plenty of referrals.5. You hand off customers to an employee and never personally contact them again Sure, if youre the owner of the company or the leader of a team, you cant personally take care of every single clients needs. But you can call or email each of them from time to time to let them know theyre still getting your attention. In my business, I make it a priority to respond personally to readers who ask me questions via email, Facebook, and Twitter, Mr. Gordon shares. While I could hand these tasks off to members of my staff, I truly do appreciate that readers care enough to take the time to contact me and by engaging with them individually, I am showing them that I care, too. 6. You wait till the last minute to ask for what you need Say a project has been on your desk for a week but you dont ask your subordinate to make revisions until a few hours before the deadline. This puts the stress burden on the other person, and makes him feel that you dont respect his time. 7. You rush through projects and leave loose ends In The Carpenter, Gordon writes, The world is filled with those who get things done the fastest and the cheapest, but it needs more artists, craftsmen, and craftswomen. When you become a craftsman in a world of carpenters, you will stand out, and people will clamor to work with you. When you put forth the least amount of effort and do only the bare minimum, someone else will have to come behind you and make improvements that, or youll have provided an inferior product, Mr. Gordon notes. Both tell people that you dont care enough to do the job right. To learn more, visit www.jongordon.com. Got Download?The iPad AppIts FREE!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 looks at it county by county, says Mike Kiniry, public relations director for the Alliance for the Arts in Lee County. In 2011, the Alliance had an economic impact study done for Lee County, which focused only on nonprofit arts and culture organizations. For example, It didnt include the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, he says. That study revealed that nonprofit arts organizations in Lee County generated $68.3 million in annual economic activity, supporting 2,038 fulltime equivalent jobs and generating $9.4 million in local and state government revenues. The new report is far more inclusive. The new report not only includes nonprofit arts organizations but also includes businesses such as for-profit film, architecture and design companies. What we got just now digs a little deeper and includes all arts-related economic activity, says Mr. Kiniry. It even includes companies such as printing companies that print fine art. Its not just butts in seats. Its everything. The state of Florida as a whole has 57,453 arts-related businesses that employ 212,779 people. Thats 4.2 percent of all U.S. businesses, and 4 percent of all Florida businesses. And 2.2 percent of all the people in Florida work in an arts-related business, he says. Roughly, one in 50 people work in arts-related businesses in Florida, he says. When you put it in the statewide perspective, that seems like a high number to me. I wouldnt have guessed it was that high, one in 50. And 1.9 percent of people in Lee County work in artsrelated businesses.The value of cultural touristsThe United Arts Council of Collier County conducted an economic impact study in 2008. It showed that that the economic impact of the arts, just for nonprofits, was $250 million annually, says Elaine Hamilton, executive director for the arts council. So when you think about whats happened since then, you add in for-profit arts-related businesses, its probably doubled that now. According to Ms. Hamilton, there are currently 61 nonprofit arts groups and cultural destinations in Collier County. We have 75-plus art galleries and over 500 artists and entertainers in our database, that live in Collier County, she says. While people often come to Florida for its beaches or golf courses, its also a destination for cultural tourism. Cultural tourists, she says, spend 38 percent more money and stay 60 percent longer than typical tourists. If youre going to advertise for more tourists, why not try to reach cultural tourists, because they spend more money when theyre here and will stay longer in the hotel rooms? she says. That means more business for the community, and thats a very good thing. According to the recently released Creative Industries report, Collier County has 1,250 arts-related businesses that employ 3,716 people. Data to drive public policyThe arts in Charlotte County brings in people, says Mary Ann Tipton, executive director of the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda. It brings in business, and its good for tourism. According to the Creative Industries report, Charlotte County is home to 376 arts-related businesses that employ 823 people. The data serves to support the anecdotal evidence. People retire and move to the area and plan to spend their time golfing and boating, says Ms. Tipton. Then they find that this is not fulfilling them the way they like. So a lot of people come here, to the Visual Arts Center. Just as many men as women. And they learn to draw, do pottery, make stained glass. People come and enjoy art. As theyre walking around town, they see the murals on the buildings, theyre looking at sculptures in the park, and we have stores such as Sea Grape and Creation. And we have the Visual Arts Center, which not only provides three galleries for exhibits but provides classes for novices as well as experienced artists. People come here for whatever reason, and they see the art. Its all good for the economy. Judy Malbuisson, former executive director of the Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County, refers back to the 2008 Americans for the Arts study of the economic impact of nonprofit arts organizations. (The nonprofit arts) had a $21 million impact in Charlotte County and raised about $750,000 in sales tax for the county and the city in a year, she says. For us, it justified public support of the arts, or governmental support. We used that survey when we speak to public officials and business people. Usually, theyre rather surprised. The studies show that its not just a quality of life issue, she says. The arts bring money into the community. For example, she says, it can cost the Charlotte Players $40,000 to $50,000 to put on a large musical. A portion of that goes to royalties for the play, but much of it also goes toward paying musicians, purchasing lumber for sets and material for costumes. That all stays in the community, and thats how the numbers grow, she says. I know from personal experience that the cast goes out, and eats in local restaurants. And when people want to go to a show and go to the symphony, theyll (often) go and have dinner beforehand. Thats all money in the community. You think of going to Sarasota because of The Ringling, and you think of it as an art destination, says Mr. Kiniry. And you think of Collier, especially Naples, with all the galleries (and community theater) on Fifth Avenue South. The fact that we have these kind of numbers means we can go to the policy makers and business leaders and show them the data. Its making it where the arts are seen as part of the actual economy and not just an accessory to the economy. Thats the conversation weve been trying to change, Mr. Kiniry says. One of our catchphrases is: Come for the beaches, but stay for the arts and culture. The fact is, Ms. Malbuisson sums up, the arts are good for business.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Withdrawal PainsA critical aspect of retirement planning is deciding how much of your savings you can afford to spend each year so that it lasts. Many advisers suggest the 4percent rule, where you multiply the savings you have when you enter retirement by 0.04, or 4 percent. The result is what you take from your savings for the year. Each subsequent year, you adjust that same sum for inflation regardless of the change in your portfolios value and withdraw the new amount. Historically, the rule allowed investors to tap their portfolios over 30-year spans without running out of money. The rule has fallen out of favor with many advisers, though. For one thing, the rule doesnt provide a lot of income, even if youve saved a fairly large amount. More important, though, the strategy is highly dependent on where the stock market happens to be on the day you retire. If the market plunges before you retire and shrinks your nest egg, your withdrawals will be small. Thus, more flexible alternatives have been developed. In one plan, you assess whether the overall markets price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is high or low, historically speaking, before commencing withdrawals. The more expensive the market, the less you can safely take out but when the markets P/E is low, you can sometimes take as much as 5 or 5.5 percent annually with a high degree of confidence.Another method involves adjusting your withdrawals. During good markets, withdrawals can rise, but during downturns, or if your portfolio doesnt grow, you give up your inflation adjustment, or even perhaps take a pay cut. Other factors can also play a part in your withdrawal rate, such as how long you expect to live, what other income streams you have, inflation rates, taxes, your portfolios allocation between stocks and bonds, and so on. Dont be afraid to seek professional advice.Learn more at fool.com/retirement and via a free trial of our Rule Your Retirement newsletter (details at ruleyourretirement.com). A Long SlumpMy dumbest investment was Rite Aid, which I bought when it was trading around $14 per share. My son is 16, and it hasnt seen $14 for almost all of his life. I cant even find the shares now to sell them, but the U.S. mail reminds me every year that Im still holding them. Its now a reminder that your pharmacist is not likely to be the best stock adviser. J.J., onlineThe Fool Responds: Rite Aid did spend many years falling and falling even below $1 per share. But it has been turning itself around rather impressively recently, with shares more than doubling in each of the past two years and trading above $7 per share in late June.Investors need to keep up with the progress of the companies in which they invest, and to be ready to sell if their health or growth prospects deteriorate. To sell missing shares, call Rite Aids investor relations department to ask which transfer agent it uses. Then call that company to request duplicate certificates. It can be a costly hassle, though. Fill Your Shopping Cart with KrogerSupermarkets, with their thin profit margins, have long been a tough business. Despite that, Kroger has been prospering, averaging 12 percent annual gains for its stock over the past 20 years. The company has been containing costs and boosting profits, growing faster than even Whole Foods Market. Indeed, its putting pressure on Whole Foods heftier profit margins as it moves aggressively into organic offerings with lower prices. Its building its digital presence, too, in part by buying digital coupon marketer YOU Technology. It also recently acquired the well-regarded Harris Teeter chain. Other efforts to drive growth include a big expansion of its gas station network to encourage repeat visits from shoppers, and the development of online retail and delivery options. Krogers last quarter featured revenue rising 10 percent year-over-year. Earnings came in below expectations, but were still up 6.5 percent. Krogers performance is especially impressive given recent food-price inflation. Kroger has become an efficiency machine, generating more of its earnings from highermargin, private-label items. Krogers price-to-earnings ratio of 17 is well below its five-year average, suggesting its attractively priced. It recently yielded 1.3 percent and it has upped that payout by an annual average of 13 percent over the past five years. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Whole Foods Market.) A pioneering global importer of decorative home furnishings and gifts, I was born in California in 1962. My early offerings included beads, incense, beanbag chairs and groovy furniture, and over my decades in business Ive sold all kinds of things, such as wicker armchairs, handpainted dinnerware, distinct clothing, scented candles, decorative accessories, and even life-sized suits of armor.

I employ about 21,000 people globally. Who am I? (Answer: Pier 1 Imports) Spiders and ZeroesQWhat are Spiders? P.G., Keene, New HampshireASpiders is a nickname for Standard & Poors Depositary Receipts based on the S&P 500 index, and theyre also known as SPDRs. Investors who own Spiders own bits of all the companies in the index, such as Intel, Hasbro, CVS Caremark, Estee Lauder, Gap, Kellogg, MetLife, Pfizer, Nike, Staples, UnitedHealth and Tractor Supply. Unlike index funds, which work much like traditional mutual funds, Spiders are exchange-traded funds (ETFs), structured like shares of stock, with the ticker symbol SPY.While mutual funds sometimes require minimum investments of thousands of dollars, you can buy and sell as little as one Spider share (recent price: near $200) at a time. Learn more at fool.com/etf/etf.htm and morningstar.com/Cover/ETFs.aspx. We recommend Spiders and low-cost, broadmarket index funds for most, if not all, investors. Theyre a simple way to own much of the U.S. stock market.***QWhats a zero-coupon bond? S.B., Hickory, North CarolinaATheyre a twist on regular bonds. Bonds are essentially loans, where you typically lend money to companies or governments.With a traditional $10,000 bond that has a 5 percent interest rate, you lend $10,000 to the borrower (buying the bond) and receive interest payments of 5 percent per year. (In the past, people had to send in coupons in order to receive these payments.) When the bond matures, you get the principal, your $10,000, back.With a zero-coupon bond, you collect no interest payments, but the amount you lend is less than the amount youll receive at maturity. Thus, a zero-coupon bond might pay you the equivalent of 5 percent per year by having you lend $6,139 today in order to receive $10,000 in 10 years. Got a question for the Fool?

CAPE CORALS NEVER HAD A REPUTATION FOR being hip. In fact, life there can be so uneventful that the locals call it Cape Coma. But two people are creating a small oasis of cool for those who dont consider 10 p .m. way past their bedtime. It comes in the unlikely form of a small pizzeria/bar on Cape Coral Parkway, unobtrusively tucked between a dress shop and a decorative brick paving and sealing company. Nice Guys Pizza is a far cry from your typical Southwest Florida Pizzeria. The lights are dim, with Sacred Heart of Jesus and Our Lady of Guadalupe candles flickering on the tables and bar.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSOld dogs, past the point of being gentlemenIm spending the month of July in France. Ive come to the same remote mountain village for the last three years to stay at a writing residency thats a little like summer camp for adults. By now, I know most of the locals by name. I know all of the walking paths that extend out from the village. And I know Homer, the Brittany spaniel who belongs to the residency, a handsome and smart dog Ive come to adore. Ive written about Homer before. Too much, if thats possible. Hes truly a great dog, the kind that even catlovers like. One of the women staying here now, who also is a regular, said that after her last stay, back home in Virginia, a friend asked her, So, did you fall in love with anyone in France? And she said, Yes. A dog. Its true that Homer is quite lovable. Hes sweet and affectionate, only bossy with other dogs, never snarls or snaps. He has soft golden eyes that swear he doesnt get enough to eat, even after youve fed him half a sausage. But the very best thing about Homer is his gentlemanly manners. As a cat person, I cannot tolerate the way dogs are always humping something. Sometimes theyre humping each other, sometimes theyre humping the furniture. Sometimes theyre humping you. Homer, though, has never crossed that line. Sure, hell climb up on Filou, a male bloodhound who lives in the village and is his best pal, but that just seems like a natural extension of their relationship, sort of like the way football players smack each other on the rump more fraternal than sexual. But with me, Homer has always been perfectly respectable. Unlike the rest of the men in my life, hes never tried to give it a go. Until yesterday. It was mid-morning, and most of the other residents were working or off hiking. I was in the kitchen making tea when Homer snuck into the house through the open front door. I saw him and stepped into the foyer to say hello. He leaned against me and I patted his neck and spoke a few soft words. I gave him a final thumping against his ribcage and started to step away. But before I could turn, he jumped up on his hind legs, wrapped his front paws around my thigh and assumed the classic pose. Homer! I said, appalled. I stepped back and he stepped with me, still locked on. No! I said, trying to shake him loose. He looked up at me with those golden eyes and practically said, But I never get any. Unfortunately for him, I know that look from men, not dogs and I learned a long time ago not to believe it. Homer, I said. Down! He gave me one last pleading glance before he released my leg and slunk out the door. I couldnt tell who was more embarrassed, him or me. No one likes to see old friends engaged in bad behavior even if that behavior is in their nature and no one, especially, likes to be on the receiving end.

Just what happens when five men come together to discuss the taboo subject of living with such an affliction will unfold July 25-Aug. 9, when Lets Put On A Show Productions presents The Irish Curse at the Golden Gate Community Center. The Off-Broadway play employs boisterous humor, brutal honesty and frank language in examining such topics as sex, body image, relationships, social status and how society and men themselves define masculinity. Were hoping it doesnt come across as a one-joke play, says Kevin Moriarty, who shares co-directing duties with Lets Put On A Show co-founder Scott Lilly. Mr. Moriarty is doubling up on his duties by also serving as a cast member, portraying Joseph Flaherty, a role originated by Dan Butler, who played Bulldog on the TV show Frazier. Theres camaraderie among the guys, Mr. Moriarty says of the plays characters. I think theres a good chemistry. We bicker back and forth. Each gentleman has his own personality. There all have flaws and theyre all hiding behind something. They have all shields. While its legitimacy can be debated by those in the know, The Irish Curse is a humorous metaphor of long standing for an allegedly common trait among the sons of Hibernia and their sons. This rumored curse is also what brings together three Irish-American New Yorkers, all successful professionals, for the weekly support group gatherings. There, the size-obsessed men lament how their, ahem, condition, has affected their lives. Those complaints transform into getting real about their lives when on one evening, a one bluecollar expatriate Dubliner joins them and shakes the regulars from their lethargy. The Irish Curse is set in the basement of the church of Father Kevin Shaunessy, who organized the support group for men with small penises. Secrets and confessions abound including some on the part of Father Kevin as they gather one rainy night. Joining him at the meeting are: Joseph, a father whose wife abandoned him and their children; Rick Baldwin, a big talker and player, despite having a girlfriend; Stephen Fitzgerald, a promiscuous gay man and a police officer; and Kieren Reilly, the Irish newcomer and catalyst for honest dialog. I think it (the play) shares a world view that hope is possible and theres a common humanity, Mr. Moriarty says. The play also looks how men in society define masculinity. These men are using the wrong measure stick in measuring their own masculinity. Mr. Lilly likens the play to Eve Enslers The Vagina Monologues. No ones doing a monologue, but theyre talking about male issues you dont usually hear about, he says. Its full of major drama. Its full of major humor. Its sort of like a roller coaster. One minute youre laughing and the next minute youre going What is going on here? Mr. Lilly believes the play holds a unisex appeal. For women, I think it will be interesting to find out what men are thinking about their issues, he says. They can really sit back and listen to men discuss what makes them insecure and this tiny little secret that they have. The Irish Curse had its world premier at the 2005 New York International Fringe Festival, where its author, Martin Casella, went home with the Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Playwriting. Staging plays that are outside the often staid norm for this regions theatrical offerings was a goal for Mr. Moriarty and Mr. Lilly when they started Lets Put on a Show Productions in 2012. This one might be a little bit off the chart for Southwest Florida, observes Mr. Moriarty. Well see how it goes and what kind of audiences it brings in. Were trying something like this to see if theres enough of a theater crowd here in Southwest Florida. Mr. Lilly says they also wanted to stage a production that had an all-male cast, having staged Motherhood Out Loud, with a predominantly female, cast as their most recent production. The theater groups risk-taking approach to programming led Derek Perry to audition for a role in Irish Curse. He plays Stephen, the New York City cop, in his Lets Put On A Show debut. What theyre doing is something alternative, something you dont always see, says Mr. Perry, a Naples native whos perhaps best known locally as the bassist for the band Fake Problems. Its really exciting that theyre doing this edgy material that youd seldom find in any theater, let alone in Southwest Florida. Mr. Perry describes his Irish Curse character as being a chock full of seeming contradictions. Hes very sordid and he has a lot of conflicting values and situations throughout his life, he says. He hasnt come out to his father yet, but hes well into his 30s. Hes a very sensitive guy, but he comes across as tough. Hes a very dynamic character. Hes a funny guy. He causes tension. He breaks tension. He makes jokes and yells. Its a very versatile role.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 ARTS COMMENTARY Laboratory Theater says, I do, I doWhen it comes down to it, its all about love. The nine short one-act plays at the Laboratory Theater of Florida are full of countless little gestures of affection: holding hands, remembering to pack what the other forgot when going on a trip, how-we-first-met stories, standing sideby-side in front of the bathroom mirror while getting ready in the morning, knowing how to fight in a healthy way, appreciating the fact that he doesnt snore. But the plays are also full of other things: pain at being rejected by ones parents and thrown out of the house at 15, being bullied and attacked, being unable to marry the person you love. Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays looks at same-sex marriage through a variety of lenses. Conceived by Brian Shnipper, the nine plays are written by eight of our top contemporary playwrights, including Moises Kaufman, Mo Gaffney, Neil LaBute and Paul Rudnick, whose two offerings get some of the biggest laughs of the evening. Mr. Rudnicks humor is razor-sharp in The Gay Agenda, in which Mary Abigail Carstairs-Sweetbuckle of Ohio (Lori Riti) gives a talk about seeing gays everywhere. She starts out all smiles and Midwestern sweetness, but sl owly builds to a public meltdown as she relays her tale. (Her husband, she says, claims that Satan made gay people as a crafts project.) Ms. Riti is priceless in this short play, revealing how she began hearing a gay voice talk to her. Her comedic timing and delivery are on target and do justice to Mr. Ruddicks lines. In My Husband, Nancy Antonio plays a liberal mother desperate to marry off her gay son (PJ McCready). She sees marriage as a competition, and wants her son to have a wedding thats bigger and gayer than any other. Stacy Stauffer and Kendra Price play a couple in two different plays, This Flight Tonight and A Traditional Wedding. In the first, theyre about to fly to Des Moines, Iowa, for their wedding when one starts to have second thoughts. In the latter, Ms. Prices character explains why she didnt want to have a conventional wedding. The two have some tender moments together on stage as they work out their differences. Pretty soon well be as bad at marriage as the straight folk are. Then well know weve achieved equality, jokes Ms. Stauffers character. On Facebook, a re-enactment of a Facebook conversation performed as a reading, doesnt really work that well as a short play, but does contain some good acting. Ms. Stauffer plays a no-nonsense lesbian, while Ms. Prices character is a judgmental conservative who doesnt think gays should be allowed to marry, all the while insisting her gay friends love her. A shirtless Josh Russo is eye candy while Ms. Antonio provides laughs as Beth, a woman whos totally clueless about technology. In London Mosquitoes, David Yudowitz gives a eulogy for his partner of 46 years. Its moving and poignant, but wouldve been better served if Mr. sYudowitz had used more dramatic modulations in his delivery. London Mosquitoes is an intimate view of a relationship that lasted almost 50 years, one that got easier and lovelier as the years passed. But its also a tribute to those of an earlier era, the pioneers, a generation were now losing one by one. His character stresses the importance of witnessing each others lives and their deaths. But its Strange Fruit that packs the most emotional wallop, with Scott Carpenter and Mr. McCready giving side-byside monologues as a newlywed couple. Mr. McCreadys almost unbearably sweet as he describes coming out later in life and discovering he really does love men. And Mr. Carpenters character is the lucky recipient; hes charming and wry, in love with the whole world on his wedding day. You cant help but fall in love with both their characters. Standing On Ceremony opens with a couple (Dave Kensler and Mr. Carpenter) grappling with writing their own wedding vows and ends with another couple saying theirs. But the last play of the evening is unfortunately one of the weakest, with Pablo (Joey Bostic) and Andrew (John Klinko) saying their self-penned wedding vows at the altar. (Mr. Bostic performs as Ariana Valentine around the Lee County area.) So while the show ends on a celebratory note, it also just fizzles out, as the actors seem challenged by the poetic and whimsical dialogue. Were finally presented with an actual wedding scene, but it feels oddly anti-climatic. Director Brenda Kensler chose to decorate the minimalist set with a wall of white cubes with words such as doubt, fear, sad, bullying and name calling written on them. The actors remove a cube or two after each short play, revealing more of the rainbow flag behind it. But it just feels gimmicky, making the plays seem more like a high-school production. The writing and some of the acting is of such a high quality that it doesnt need those cubes. Their presence doesnt enhance the plays at all. Standing on Ceremony doesnt preach like an After School Special, but it does manage to deliver some nice messages, such as, Its OK to be who you are. Forty-five years after Stonewall, that historic pivotal event in New York City in which gays fought back against police mistreatment, their marriage is now legal in 19 states and Washington, D.C. At the rate laws are changing, perhaps Standing on Ceremony will soon be a dated piece. As one character says, If marriage is about love, why do we w ant to reduce love in the world? A good question, indeed. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays>> When: through July 26 >> Where: Laboratory Theater of Florida, 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Tickets: $22 ($12 for students) >> Info: 218-0481 or www.laboratorytheaterorida.com COURTESY PHOTOSStacy Stauffer and Kendra Price Annette Trossbach and Brenda Kensler TO FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION, VISIT US AT NAPLES.CONCEPT1010.COM One-On-OneAlways.

Bulger Is it worth $10? YesJust as much an expose on government corruption as it is a look at one of Americas most wanted criminals in fact, sometimes its hard to differentiate between the two Whitey: United States of America vs. James J. Bulger is a fascinating story of greed, murder, cover-ups and loss. If its a bit longwinded, its because it wants to get all the details right. Still, less wouldve been more. Using the summer 2013 trial of James Whitey Bulger as a starting point, director Joe Berlinger (the Paradise Lost trilogy) examines what made Whitey a notorious underworld boss for 30 years in Boston, and how the FBI and justice department conspired to keep him in power. The dynamic between him and the FBI is intriguing: Mr. Berlinger, with the help of defense attorney J.W. Carney, allows Whitey to clearly state his case that he was not an FBI informant, and that he merely paid off the likes of FBI agent John Connolly (whos from Whiteys old neighborhood) in the interest of continuing to operate without hassle from authorities. Meanwhile, prosecutors put forth ample evidence of the information Whitey allegedly informed to authorities, which Whiteys defense team dissects and finds numerous flaws with. Later, evidence of a cover-up from the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI higher-ups suggest Whiteys non-informant assertion might be valid, though theres certainly plenty of legitimacy in both directions. Mr. Berlinger at times gets so consumed with this debate that he occasionally grounds the film in minutiae; hitting only the high points would have served the film better. Theres also this: Whitey was a bank robber, extortionist, loan shark, drug dealer and murderer. Although he doesnt deserve sympathy, he gets a small bit of it because of how the government continues to paint him in what could be a false light. To spend so much time giving Whitey the benefit of the doubt regarding not being an informant obstructs the bigger, more important point of a dangerous man going to jail. Yes its important to reveal government corruption, but that could have been done without so much emphasis on how Whitey wants to be remembered. In addition to Whitey and the FBI, we also hear from survivors of Whiteys victims, all of whom were notably affected by the loss of their loved ones. Here we see bitterness and hatred toward Whitey that remains to this day, rendering the films overall impact threefold: 1) It hits home that Whitey was a true monster, 2) We realize the FBI and justice department in some ways enabled Whitey to perpetrate these crimes, which is appalling, and 3) Whitey comes across as the victim of a government conspiracy to paint him as an informant, which to him is the worst thing imaginable. Whitey: United States of America vs. James J. Bulger exposes government misdeeds at a high level, but its end game only creates more unknown. Mr. Berlinger certainly isnt trying to get Whitey out of prison, nor is he saying the entire FBI and justice department are corrupt. But he absolutely suggests there are major flaws in the system, and the system might not be fixable. Where does that leave us, let alone the victims families? Stuck. And powerless. w g t b r dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Whitey Bulger was the inspiration for Jack Nicholsons Frank Costello in The Departed.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC12 WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 FILM CAPSULESDawn of the Planet of the Apes (Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Andy Serkis) In this sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), apes and humans try to peacefully co-exist in futuristic San Francisco. The ape visual effects are fine, but the picture is dull and the story is lazy. Rated PG-13.Tammy 1/2(Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates) Loser Tammy (Ms. McCarthy) and her grandma (Ms. Sarandon) get in trouble while on a road trip. Painfully unfunny, its so bad it makes you worry for McCarthys career. Rated R.Earth To Echo (Teo Halm, Brian Astro Bradley, Reese Hartwig) Three young friends (Mr. Halm, Mr. Bradley, Mr. Hartwig) discover a lost alien the night before theyre forced to move away from one another in their neighborhood. Its a lackluster E.T. rip-off that uses the found footage gimmick to dizzying effect. Rated PG. Transformers: Age of Extinction (Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci) Inventor Cade (Mr. Wahlberg) and his daughter Tessa (Ms. Peltz) are caught in a government war against Transformers in the fourth installment of director Michael Bays hit franchise. At 165 minutes and with a weak story, its so long and overwhelming its exhausting. Rated PG-13.Obvious Child (Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffmann) Standup comedienne Donna (Ms. Slate) is dumped by her boyfriend, loses her job and is knocked up by a nice guy (Mr. Lacy) in the span of a few days. Funny and empowering for women, with a performance from Ms. Slate that could make her a star. Rated R.Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed 1/2(Javier Camara, Natalia de Molina, Francesc Colomer) In 1966 Spain, a schoolteacher (Mr. Camara), a pregnant woman (Ms. De Molina) and a teenage runaway (Mr. Colomer) travel to the coast in the hope of meeting John Lennon. Its a sweet, touching story of three people finding answers in unexpected places. Winner of six Goya Awards (the Spanish Oscars). Not Rated (adult themes and situations). Jersey Boys (John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza, Christopher Walken) The story of Frankie Valli (Mr. Young) and The Four Seasons rise and fall. For those unfamiliar with the 2005 Tony Award-winning Broadway show, there are big surprises in store as this is much more than a jukebox musical. The songs are good, but the storys even better.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 C13 Jump Street (Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ice Cube) In this sequel to the 2012 hit, Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) sends Schmidt (Mr. Hill) and Jenko (Mr. Tatum) to college to bust a drug ring. It has no shame in being similar to the original, and thats OK because its probably funnier. Rated R.The Signal 1/2(Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Laurence Fishburne) Computers hackers (Mr. Thwaites, Beau Knapp) wake up in a hospital after trying to track down their rival. The middle loses its way, but the beginning and end are fascinating enough to earn this a moderate recommendation. Rated PG-13.How to Train Your Dragon 2 1/2(Voices of Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, Gerard Butler) With his father (Mr. Butler) ready to hand over the reins and make him chief, Hiccup (Mr. Baruchel) must once again prove himself when dragon hunters threaten their safety. Well-conceived, funny and exciting, this is a top-quality sequel without a misstep. Rated PG.The Fault in Our Stars 1/2(Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Laura Dern) Teenagers Hazel (Ms. Woodley) and Gus (Mr. Elgort) fall for one another as she battles cancer. Its a tearjerker for sure, but it earns those tears through quality character development and emotion. This is not manipulative melodrama; its genuine heartache. Based on the novel by John Green. Rated PG-13.Edge of Tomorrow (Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton) Major William Cage (Mr. Cruise) dies in battle but is revived and forced to relive the same day until he finds a way to emerge victorious. The 3D and visual effects look great, the story is fantastic, and it all pays off wonderfully in a near perfect action movie. Rated PG-13.A Million Ways to Die in the West (Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson) A gunslingers (Mr. Neeson) wife (Ms. Theron) trains a sheep farmer (Mr. MacFarlane) to use a gun prior to a showdown with the man (Neil Patrick Harris) who stole the farmers girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried). Its never a good thing when most of the funny moments are in the trailer. Rated R.Maleficent (Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley) Heres the story of Sleeping Beauty told from villainess Maleficents (Ms. Jolie) point of view. Not surprisingly, it turns out shes not so cruel after all. The visuals are cartoonish and the story is thin; the only highlight is Ms. Jolie as the deliciously evil title character. Rated PG.

Summer Specials O ering Daily Public Cruises Seabreeze Lunch, Dinner, Hors doeuvres, A ernoon and Sunset Sightseeing BOOK REVIEWAn eloquent, hard-hitting memoir of perseverance, pride and purpose I Heard My Country Calling by James Webb. Simon & Schuster. 400 pages. Hardcover. $27. Alluding to another writers warning, James Webb cautions those who meet him (or read his works) against not understanding him too soon. People have been understanding him too soon for half a century, perhaps ever since he showed up as a plebe at the United States Naval Academy in 1964. Perhaps even before that. A versatile, complex man, Mr. Webb has seemed easy to classify, to pigeonhole. In part, thats because of his sometimes off-putting straightforwardness: Hes the guy whos often disputing your certainties. To be straightforward is not to be simple. Looking back, Mr. Webb draws a broad picture of his forebears, the ScotsIrish folks who settled and built communities in the middle of America. He details a few generations leading up to his immediate family, whose roots are in Arkansas. Its a story of working hard to get by, toughness, religious faith and surprising isolation from mainstream metropolitan culture and enterprise. Small towns in Nebraska, Texas and Missouri; back roads; modest ambitions; and no patience with pretension. However, his fathers two-year assignment to RAF Henlow in Bedfordshire, England, was an unexpected, horizonwidening experience. James Webb Sr., a self-taught engineer, pulled himself up to positions of respect and authority in a long Army career that climaxed in the race for space between the United States and the Soviet Union and the missile defense system program. James Sr. didnt offer his young namesake much praise, instead constantly challenging him to bear hardships without complaining, and teaching him how to box. He also taught his son, by example, what duty means and why sacrifices are necessary. Love of country was in James Webbs DNA. It still is. The familys vagabond life at the whim of duty assignments was aggravated further by the fathers penchant for moving from house to house, even during shortterm postings. Such doings made it hard to form friendships and impossible to have educational continuity. The Webb children were over and over again the new kids in town or on the base. On the other hand, they learned to know their country by adjusting to different slices of it over and over again. These were not your ordinary baby boomers.

The authors chapter on his USNA experience is the best short treatment of Naval Academy life during those years that one is likely to find. Midshipman Webb enjoys being tested, hates the Micky Mouse stuff and rises to one of the highest positions in the Brigade of Midshipman before graduation. Excelling in the humanities and leadership, he is marginal in the technical curriculum. Then hes off to Quantico for Marine combat and leadership training and then at age 23 hes a junior officer in the Vietnam War. For many readers, Mr. Webbs narrative of his months as a squad and platoon leader in Quang Nam Province will be the heart of the book. He has a great talent for making murky things clear. The full sensory and emotional experience is enfolded in a penetrating intellectual frame that explores the wars political context. War injuries made an extended military career impossible for a man who would not be happy wearing a military uniform to a desk job. Law school at Georgetown University, a stint as chief counsel for the House Committee on Veterans Affairs and a determined, productive self-education effort covering a wide range of subjects occupy him in the middle and later 1970s. As he makes clear in the chapter called Fighting with My Brain, his commitment to serving his country is unchanged; only the arena and weapons are different. Hereafter, the authors professional life alternates intervals of public service in government (including being Secretary of the Navy) with writing projects large and small. The experiences of conceiving, developing and achieving publication of his first novel, Fields of Fire, provide a fascinating sea change for this former boxer and combat Marine. Its publication and reception at the end of the 1970s closes out this compelling, intense and highly illuminating memoir. Framed by an opening chapter on his goodbye to his U.S. Senate office and a closing fable-like narrative of a moral test provided by his aged Aunt Lena while he was working for Congress, Mr. Webbs memoir is an important American story. Not just about an exceptional man whom we should not understand too soon, it also describes the nation and values that formed him and to which he has given such distinguished service. I Heard My Country Calling is only the latest installment of that service. Knowing that Mr. Webb has produced another 35 years of service and highly praised writings since the late 1970s, I await the sequel.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 Remarkable jugs carried complex statements of the time BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELArtists often express political ideas in their work, and many years later, collectors have trouble understanding the politics. Kirkpatrick/Anna pottery worked from 1839 to 1896 in Illinois and made pottery jugs and other useful containers. But they also created some very strange jugs. Pottery pigs marked with railroad routes were made in the 1870s and 1880s to give to politicians, important owners or employees of the railroads. Those pigs sell today for about $12,000 up to a record price of $35,000. But mysterious Temperance jugs were decorated with three-dimensional figures that can be confusing to someone from the 21st century. One spectacular salt-glazed jug, 10 inches high, was made with more than 18 applied designs representing the Civil War, slavery and the drinking of alcohol. There is a bust of a Union soldier with a goatee being bitten by a snapping turtle. The rear end of a man in red pants going in probably is a reference to the evils of alcohol that trap him in the whiskey jug. One of the many snakes on the jug is eating a thin, bearded man. The head of a man, perhaps Abraham Lincoln, is shown near an eagle. The head of a black man and loose pottery chains represent slavery. A man smoking a pipe and drinking from a mug, and a classical figure of a woman holding a lyre still are unidentified. The jug is well-marked, with the words from Kirkpatrick Anna Pottery, Anna Union Co, Ills. It may be the most amazing of all of the Anna Pottery message pieces, and it sold at a Crocker Farm auction in Sparks, Md., for $69,000 in March 2014. Q: I have a glass compote with a frosted stem and foot. The stem has three female faces in relief. The clearglass bowl has a piecrust edge. It has been in my family for a long time. Can you give me any information about it? A: Three Face is a pressed glass pattern made by George A. Duncan & Sons, which later became Duncan and Miller Glass Co. It was designed by John Ernest Miller in 1878, and the designer's wife supposedly was the model for the face. Three Face pattern glass was made until 1892. However, it has been reproduced. Original, early pieces sell for high prices, but reproductions sell for about $100. Q: I have a silver-plated demitasse spoon by Crown Silver Plate Co. The engraving in the bowl of the spoon is of an old battleship. The letters on top read Battleship Maine, and underneath the ship it reads Captain Sigbee. The ship sunk in Havana Harbor on Feb. 15, 1898. Id like to know if this spoon has any value. A: The battleship Maine was sent to Cuba in January 1898 to protect American interests during The figures on this Anna Pottery vase made in the 1860s give a message about the Civil war, slavery and the evils of alcohol. It sold for $69,000 at a Crocker Farm auction in Sparks, Md., after 27 bids.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 C17 Cubas fight for independence from Spain. On Feb. 15, an explosion onboard sank the ship. The cause was never definitely determined. The sinking inspired the slogan Remember the Maine, to Hell with Spain and spurred America's entrance into the SpanishAmerican War. To commemorate the sinking, several silver companies made souvenir spoons picturing the battleship in the bowl and the head of Captain Sigbee on the finial at the end of the handle. The name Crown Silver Plate Co. was used on silver flatware made by J.W. Johnson of New York City in 1898. Souvenir spoons like yours sell for about $5. Q: I bought a Vibro-Shaver at a garage sale and would like some information about it. I have the original box and the instructions, but it doesnt say who made it or the year it was made. It runs and is in excellent condition. It still has the original price tag of $5. What is it worth today? A: Vibro was advertised in a 1937 issue of Popular Mechanics magazine as the only non-electric, automatic shaver made. The razor blade is held in the detachable head, which vibrates when the key on the front is wound. Shavers are not a popular collectible. Vibro-Shavers with original box sell online for $15 to $20 today. Q: I have a hobo clown doll that has been in my family since at least the early 1950s. It is 18 inches tall, has a hard-plastic head and cloth body, and a hand crank on the back that produces a laughing sound when turned. The doll has a cloth tag that reads Gund Mfg. Co., J. Swedlin Inc. I have tried to learn more about it, and Gund says they have no record of this doll. Can you help? A: Gund made your clown doll sometime between 1954 and 1957. German immigrant Adolph Gund started his company in 1898 in Norwalk, Conn. He retired in 1925 and sold the business to Jacob Swedlin with the understanding that the Gund name would continue to be used. Swedlin ran the company with his brothers. They changed the company's name to J. Swedlin Inc. but kept Gund as a trade name. Gund was bought by Enesco in 2008 and continues to make plush toys. The laughing box mechanism inside your clown doll is actually a phonograph-like device that plays a small record. It was patented in 1953. The device was used in millions of toys, including your clown doll and other toys made by Gund and other companies, until 1957. Your laughing clown doll would sell for $25 to as much as $100 if it's in good condition and still laughs. Tip: If you are selling a car, rug, quilt or upholstered furniture and do not smoke, your ad should mention that it was owned by a nonsmoker. That is a plus for many buyers.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC20 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 hang on the walls, while speakers blast music by The Black Keys, The Who, Joy Division, Johnny Cash, The Velvet Underground and Neil Young. Its the type of place you might find in a college town, or in the newly gentrified neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Its the kind of place where owners Jovana Batkovic, 34, and Greg Gebhard, 28 would want to hang out. The couple had recently moved from Cleveland, Ohio, where they played in a post-punk band called Hot Cha Cha. It broke up. It used to be an all-girl band til Greg joined, says Jovana. Shes wearing a black T-shirt with a portrait of Dolly Parton in gold glitter. Underneath the image of Dollys head is a quote of hers: It costs a lot of money to look this cheap. I started playing bass, then played guitar. Poorly, says Greg. It was loud, though. The two talk as if conversation is a tagteam event. We actually came down to fix up our house in Matlacha, where Greg has been vacationing with his family since he was little, Jovana says. His grandparents lived there for a while, maybe back in the s. They originally came down for just three months and wound up staying, getting jobs in the service industry during season. We just kinda started living here, says Jovana. It was like being in Paradise. Its a different world on Matlacha. It was a totally different world. We were used to the big city. We lived in Cleveland. But they noticed some definite drawbacks. There was nothing for people like us in the area, no scene to hang out, listen to good music, says Jovana. Everything is very tourist. The people down here dont want to do that, adds Greg. They dont want to be surrounded by palm trees, Joavana says. And Jimmy Buffett playing every Friday, two sets no offense, says Greg. They toyed with the idea of having a food truck. Wed always been talking about opening our own restaurant, says Jovana. But we didnt know it would happen here. Or this soon, says Greg. We came across this little place, says Jovana. It was another pizzeria, he adds. I think before that it used to be a Polish store or a little deli, says Jovana. They opened on May 12, 2013. Its a tiny place, with maybe 10 or 11 spots at the L-shaped bar, four tables lined up against the wall and a well-used sofa and armchair in the front. Jovana did the decorating. She made collages for the top of the small bar and the four table tops, using images from s and 0s Playboys, s National Geographics and some old newspapers and songbooks she found in a thrift store. On the bar, the images of women overlap, a hand, elbow or leg of one woman discretely covering the centerfold parts of another. (On a recent night, someone at the bar accidentally knocked over an Our Lady of Guadalupe candle, spilling hot white candle wax on an image of naked flesh.) The faux marble floor, she reveals, she made with brown paper bags dipped in Elmers Glue, then covered with polyurethane. The music that plays is their own personal mix. We created something we really liked, Jovana says, listing some of the artists: The Black Keys, Johnny Cash, The Verve, Toro y Moi, Cake, the Ramones, The Clash. It depends on what we feel like, she says. And then, they decided to host concerts. Approximately once a month, local and regional punk and hardcore bands play in the tiny space, though one time they hosted a string quartet from Miami called The Wild. They remove the tables and the comfy sofa that sits by the front window, and have people come in through the back door. They charge $5. At shows, everyone pays at the door, says Greg, citing one of their rules. And all the money goes to the bands. Thats a rule for this place: no cover bands, says Jovana. The bands have to play original music. They have a list of other rules too. We cant turn down the music because the volume button g ets stuck, says Jovana. We cant turn up the lights. Were both vampires. The dim light is soothing. As for the music they play, No top 40, she says. You wont hear any racist country music (here), but you would hear good country music, Johnny Cash, that stuff. You probably wouldnt hear anything you would hear on the radio. We draw on the old stuff too, Greg says. Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding. Its not punk at all, but its good music, says Jovana. As long as its good, well play it. Any other self-imposed rules? No highchairs, says Jovana gleefully. We dont have any, and well never get any. She pauses, then adds, We do have duct tape, though. Then her imagination starts running wild: A 20 percent surcharge if you bring children! Just kidding. A customer, sitting on the couch, chimes in, Twenty percent? It should be 30 percent! But with its loud music, dim lighting and tight quarters, its really not a childfriendly place. Most patrons are in their 20s or 30s, many with Clark Kent glasses and multiple tattoos. Jessica Bentley, 22, of Cape Coral, comes for the beer, the experience. The bar serves microbrews from places like Fort Myers Brewery, Point Ybel Brewing and Cigar City Brewing in Tampa. Greg asks my opinion, we bounce ideas (about beer) off of each other, she says. And the musics great, even on the nights they dont have shows. I like the music. Mary Sherman, 21, of Cape Coral, agrees. The owners are super fun, she says. They have awesome ideas. I love the shows here. They always have super cool bands that play, and they give all the money from the door to the bands. That helps the scene. The place is called Nice Guys Pizza because back in Cleveland, Greg was known in his circle of friends as Nice Guy Greg, to differentiate him from the other Greg. So he and Jovana decided to go with that name when they opened the pizzeria. Their logo, designed by their friend Matt Evans in Fort Collins, Colo., is a heart-shaped pepperoni pizza with a dagger through it. If you get this tattoo, you get 20 percent off for life, says Greg, noting that people get them at the nearby Forever Tattoo Parlour. So far, eight or nine people have done so. But one guy, he says, was vegan, so he substituted mushrooms for the pepperoni. But other than those logo-tattooed people, Nice Guys doesnt do any advertising. Its all word of mouth, says Jovana. W e decided right a way: if people like you, and there is a match, people will tell each other. We didnt want it to happen too quickly. This way, it took us a year to figure everything out. They do sell black T-shirts with their logo on them for $15. It states that Nice Guys is located in Cape Coma, FL. Greg sees it as a comfy, homey space with a relaxed vibe, a place where people can come and hang out, leave and go to a show, and then come back for a slice of pizza. And with operating hours of 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., its often the only place around thats open past midnight. People used to have to go to Tampa or Orlando to see the bands they wanted to see, Greg says. Now, if people want to do something, he says, there is a scene here. We have people who say, Thank you so much. We didnt have anything like this around.

CELEBRITY EXTRA Frozen characters joining Once Upon A Time BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Is it true that characters from the hit Disney film Frozen are coming to Once Upon a Time? Judging by the tease from this seasons finale, Id say yes. Steff S. in FloridaA: That is indeed true, Steff. Characters loosely based on Kristoff, Anna and Queen Elsa who will be played by Scott Michael Foster (Greek), newcomer Elizabeth Lail and Georgina Haig (Fringe, Reckless), respectively will cool their heels in Storybrooke, Maine, in season four of ABCs red-hot fantasy/drama series. The Frozen story arc on Once Upon a Time is expected to pick up after the events of the film. Q: I know how busy Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are, but please tell me that there will be another season of Sherlock. Jenny T., via emailA: I am happy to report that there shall indeed be another season of the BBC/PBS hit mystery series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyles detective book series. The show will return with a threeepisode fourth season, which will start with a one-off Christmas special (most likely) in December 2015. You heard me right: Thats a Christmas special plus a regular three-episode season. According to Sherlock co-creator and actor Mark Gatiss: At last! Its always special to return to Sherlock, but this time its even more special as were doing ... a special! Not only THAT, well then be shooting three more episodes, which will take Sherlock and John Watson into deeper and darker water than ever before. The whole Sherlock team are terrifically excited to return for four new adventures. The game is on again! Q: I saw an ad for a show called The Quest, but I cant figure out if its a competition show, or an actual drama/ adventure series. Can you tell me what its about? Paul I., Wooster, OhioA: The Quest is a new reality competition show from executive producers of The Amazing Race, teaming up with an executive producer of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Premiering on ABC on Thursday, July 31, at 8/7c, the series is billed as: a thrilling race against time, fantasy, reality and scripted drama ... a new reality-based competition series unlike anything else on television. The show takes 12 unsuspecting contestants to an imaginative realm where ogres run free in the forest, dragons stir, agents of a dark lord infiltrate the keep, and the only thing standing between peace and chaos are a dozen very unlikely heroes. The Quest will be a fully immersive experience. In and around the castle, the fantasy realm will come to life with state-of-the art projections, animatronics, prosthetics and art direction. The narrative and mythology of The Quest is deep and fully imagined, and it has been designed to incorporate seamlessly with the unexpected actions and decisions of the contestants. Fantasy comes alive as never before in this genrebending series. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C25 ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS... Daniel I. Wasserman, M.D. 8625 Collier Boulevard, Naples, FL 34114 239.732.0044 www.SkinWellnessFlorida.comNew and compelling plays blended w ith classic musicals mark the 2014-15 season for The Naples Players at the Sugden Community Theatre. The summer season starts Friday, June 27, with the opening of Gypsy. The classic American musical by Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim takes place in the dying days of vaudeville and tells the story of Momma Rose, the quintessential stage mother, and her two two daughters. Inspired by the memoirs of the burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee, the show boasts some of Broadways most famous melodies, including Everythings Coming Up Roses, Some People and Let Me Entertain You. It runs through July 27. The fall season begins with Noises Off (Sept. 24-Oct. 18). This farce by Michael Frayn gives a sneak peek in to what it is really like on the other side of the curtain, following the antics of a dysfunctional troupe of actors as they stumble through their final dress rehearsal, all the way to the tumultuous closing night of their low-budget production of Nothing On. The Spitfire Grill (Nov. 12-Dec. 6), a sincere and heartfelt musical by James Valcq and Fred Alley, tells the tale of a newly released parolee looking for a new life in a small town. Yasmina Rezas God of Carnage (Jan. 14-Feb. 7) follows two sets of parents as they struggle to resolve a playground incident between their young sons. What starts out as a civilized conversation erupts in to a war of words that is manically hilarious. Insults are thrown, alliances shift and soon the parents are acting more like the children they are there to discuss. The new seasons big musical production is Oklahoma! (March 4-April 4), the Rogers & Hammerstein classical that celebrates a territory on the verge of statehood, people resolving their differences and the electricity and excitement of young love. The Last Romance (April 22-May 16) wraps up the season on the main stage. A bittersweet comedy by Joe DiPietro, its about a late-in-life romance that blossoms and proves love has no age limit.In the Tobye StudioThe more intimate Tobye Studio at the Sugden presents its own variety of shows for 2014-15, starting with Time Stands Still (Oct. 22-Nov. 15). The drama by Donald Margulies is a moving and humorous play about a couple at a crossroads as they struggle to choose between their careers and settling down to a more conventional life. The drama Red (Feb. 4-28) explores the compelling and vulnerable relationship between artist Mark Rothko and his creations as he fights for relevance in the art community. Finishing up the season in the Tobye Studio is Nora and Delia Ephrons Love, Loss & What I Wore (April 1-25), a comedy that peeks inside the lives of women and the clothes that conjure memories of their most significant life moments.ETC Readers TheatreFor its 13th season, ETC Readers Theatre presents a mix of comedy and drama in Nights to Remember, a series of staged readings presented in the Tobye Studio. Coming Sunday, Nov. 2, are four short plays in keeping with the theme, Friends, Lovers and Monkeying Around.

Although produced in a similar manner to French champagne, there are differences that help make cava affordable. Champagne made from chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier is produced only in a small strictly regulated area. In Spain, cava, too, is made from principally three grapes macabeu, xarel-lo and paradella and occasionally chardonnay but the region in which it is prodcued is much larger. Cava requires less labor to make than champagne, so the price is correspondingly lower. In champagne, before adding the yeast to cause the second fermentation, the makers hand-turn the inverted wine bottle a quarter turn at a time to allow the yeasts and grape particulate to gather at the neck. In Spain, they do this mechanically. Cava is crisp and dry, with bubbles that are slightly larger and softer than champagne. The aromas start with citrus and apple, which carry through to the palate, and end with a slight mineral edge. Prosecco is similar in style to cava, with an important difference in the production method, which comes through in the flavor. Made in the Veneto region, it is produced primarily from the glara grape (formerly called prosecco), although producers are allowed to mix in several other varieties including pinot bianco and pinot grigio. It is not made in individual bottles, but rather in a large tank in a process called charmat. The secondary fermentation occurs in the tank, and the wine is then bottled under pressure. Prosecco flavors are softer, with more peach and orchard fruits, medium-sized bubbles and a smooth, balanced finish. What is lacking in prosecco is the complexity of flavor that is found in cava and champagne. On the plus side, this wine is meant to be enjoyed young and fresh: it requires no cask or bottle aging, and is released into the market within months of production, so you will be able to savor all the freshness and fruitiness of the young wine. Whichever you choose, prosecco or cava, you will enjoy sparkling refreshment at a savings.Wine Picks of the Week: Anna de Codornu Brut Cava NV, Spain ($15): Tasting notes from Wine Spectator (88 points): This shows some richness, with Jonagold apple, honey, candied citrus peel and vanilla notes.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 17-23, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINELa Casa de Frida pays tribute to colorful artist, rustic foodBonita Springs has no shortage of Mexican restaurants, and if you Google the street address of La Casa de Frida, youll find a string of them have resided in this Terry Street location alone including Don Panchos, El Paisano and El Limon. The current occupant is a colorful homage to the great Mexican painter and feminist Frida Kahlo, whose iconic image graces the restaurants Facebook page, menu and interior. Her inspiration can be seen in the dining rooms walls saturated planes of red, gold, blue and other deep hues. Even the assortment of serving dishes bright red or white with floral rim or polymorphic shapes suggest a sort of surreal artistry. When it comes to the food, the menu promises authentic, fresh, Mom-style cooking and the kitchen delivers on the promise. You wont find gobs of sour cream and mounds of shredded cheese obscuring the food like you do at Americanized Mexican restaurants. You will see handfuls of fresh cilantro, sprinklings of crumbled queso fresca on the beans and lots of lime wedges tucked around the edges of food. A basket of warm tortilla chips and two bowls of salsa arrived shortly after we sat down. The red version was sweet, chunky and chock-full of fresh onion a good antidote to the smooth but fiery green tomatillo salsa that accompanied it. We ordered a couple of Negra Modelos ($4 each), which also helped tame the heat. There are only four dishes listed as appetizers on the menu a chicken quesadilla, quacamole, souped-up nachos and queso fundido (cheese fondue). But there are other items that serve the same purpose, such as the impressive tostada de pulpo ($4). The small fried tortilla was topped with a mountain of tender octopus chunks tossed with diced onion, tomato and pepper. Flecked with cilantro and lightly coated with a thin crema, the salad had a delicious balance of flavors of the sea and the garden. Tacos also can be a good, light segue to a heartier main course, and Casa de Frida offers corn ($1.99) and flour ($2.39) tortillas stuffed with carnitas pork, chicken, al pastor pork, tongue and tripe. The chicken version contained lots of moist, shredded white meat along with chopped onion and cilantro. The al pastor threads of pork marinated with pineapple, chilies and spices was tasty but a bit on the chewy side. Maybe it wasnt marinated long enough. Its possible Casa de Frida is more of a lunch place and wasnt prepared this late in the day; only a few other patrons came in while we were there, and it closes at 8 p.m. weekdays. Being part of a residential neighborhood, it ought to have more evening traffic. While clearing plates, our pleasant and efficient server took our order for the next course. Theres a lot to choose from: seafood and beef soups, burritos, steak dishes, quesadillas, fajitas, a few combo platters and molcajete for two (grilled meats and vegetables served in a hot stone mortar). Also available on weekends only: menudo (tripe stew) and barilla plato (goat stew). We finally decided on a torta, or Mexican street sandwich ($8.99), and a house specialty, alamabre ($14.99). The torta can be filled with your choice of a half-dozen items, including eggs with chorizo, ham or milanesa (a thin steak thats breaded and fried). I decided on lengua, or tongue. The meat was incredibly tender, its fat mostly rendered away. The sandwich was spread with refried beans and cilantro pesto and also contained avocado, tomato and lettuce. Alas, as good as the fillings tasted they were not quite proportionate with the large roll they were tucked into; the bread so overwhelmed the delicate tongue that I eventually scraped out the fillings and left much of roll on the plate. Alambre is a specialty of Mexico City and Oaxaca, from what Ive gleaned. Its not unlike fajitas in that you are served a large platter of grilled meat and vegetables along with warm tortillas to stuff them into; but this dish also included crumbled chorizo sausage and just enough cheese to help the ingredients stick together when tucked into the tortillas. The steak was tender and juicy and the sausage added a little kick, as did the charred jalapeno splayed on top. The peppers, onions and cactus pads had lovely grill marks but were not overcooked. Refried beans and rice on the side were just fine. At this point, dessert was hardly needed, but I was slightly disappointed that Casa de Frida was out of tres leches cake. We settled for flan ($4) that had an unfortunate rubbery consistency. Not the best way to end a meal, but La Casa de Frida is doing enough things right that I wouldnt hesitate to stop in again for Mom-style food served in an artful setting.
