The largest artificial reef project in the western hemisphere is ready to launch, with 18,000 tons of reef material, a unified construction contract, artificial reef modules and permitting from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers for 36 reefs off the Collier County coast all in place. Celebrations are planned Thursday and Friday, Jan. 8-9. It was just two years ago that the Economic Recovery Task Force joined with local attorney Peter Flood to develop a business plan and work with Naples and Marco Island city officials and county government officials to apply for and secure $1.3 million in private BP grant funds. An additional $50,000 was secured in private donations, administered through the Community Foundation of Collier County.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 COMMENTARYI am my mothers childI did not expect a recent journey to turn into a quest to discover the origins of a garden whatnot, but it did. Whatnots are bric-a-brac, purchased for a modest price that tend to morph and multiply into a v ast clutter of collectibles. I know this about whatnots because my mother had this collectors compulsion. Every tabletop in our family home hosted some mass-produced, ornamental statuary or ceramic dish. The most elegant pieces were on display on a coffee table that never knew a cup of coffee. A whatnots function is inconsequential to its purpose, much like the misappropriated coffee table in our living room. My mom had whatnot preferences. Her curio cabinet served as a Palace of Versailles for several pairs of porcelain ladies and gents costumed in 18th century garb, locked in each others arms at a respectful distance, dancing a frozen minuet. They always caught my eye as I passed by on my way to the kitchen. There were Humboldt-like figurines, too, of a Hansel and Gretel vintage, their chubby forms in Germanic costumes appearing without explanation, as if they had wandered into our family home direct from the Black Forest. As a teenager, I was cynical of the merits of whatnots and regarded them as dust-collectors, hardly worthy of admiration or desire. So I was determined to resist as an adult the collectible habit, cautious that I might become my mother. Nonetheless, I was genetically stricken. My downfall became garden statuary. This genre of whatnots impose their own limitations, given the copious amounts of concrete involved. Moves necessitated often leaving them behind, but I took satisfaction in knowing their status as garden fixtures was assured by the hefty commitment required to dispose of them. So it was destiny, I suppose, that garden whatnots are central to the story of the quest with which this column begins. I went to visit my husbands 94-yearold uncle on the aforementioned trip. After a stay of several hours, and murmurs of appreciation to his wife for a buttersco tch pie, I stood to take my leave. As I ventured out into a drizzling rain, Uncle Charlie called me back, beckoning me to follow him into the garage. We stepped gingerly through a narrow path between towers of boxes, and into a garage addition that served as his workshop. He wanted me to take a gander at his latest project, the repair of two very large terra cotta figurines lying broken on his workbench. A car bumper had invaded their prior location by the garage entrance. Knowing Uncle, he spoke recriminations to the perpetrator while scooping the pieces up and then stored them away, to be forgotten until Uncle Charlie decided he had the time to repair the damage, a testament to his fortitude that only now does he have the time. His progress in putting the shards together was yielding impressive results. Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf were nearly resurrected, proportionate in scale to one another, appearing almost life size, although admittedly, it was the grandeur of their detail that tricked the eye. As a reluctant connoisseur, I was duly impressed. I asked how the two figures had come into his possession, noting they were of the quality to which all whatnots aspire but seldom achieve. Uncle Charlies preamble was circuitous (of which I also plead guilty) but the destination of his explanation took us to Rock City, the place where seven states are visible from atop its perch high on Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. If you have never seen a See Rock City sign, a big chunk of North America is missing from your travels. Anyway, Rock City is on the National Register of Historic places, founded by Frieda Carter and her husband. Frieda was German and had a special interest in fairies and folktales. She largely designed Rock City as a tourist destination and dubbed the ancillary gardens and walking trails Fairyland. The Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf in Uncle Charlies possession are duplicates of the terra cotta figures in Friedas Fairyland. Uncle Charlie bought his pair long ago from a collector in Indiana. He subsequently stumbled across the existence of the originals at Fairyland on a vacation visit to Rock City. Uncle Charlie implored me to discover who and where the terra cottas were made, a mystery worthy of Ms. Marple and she didnt have the Internet. I did the research and discovered the Fairyland figures were first created around 1860 and manufactured in Grafenroda, Germany, by Phillip Griebel. However, the bigger discovery is that Griebel is famous for creating the mother-of-all whatnots, the garden gnome. Griebels descendants still make them, though most come from Poland and China now. After completing my quest, I realize how sadly lacking my life is without a garden gnome, a shortcoming that must be rectified. I am my mothers child, after all. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JAN. 1-7, 2015 OPINION amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Obamas Cuban olive branchCandidate Barack Obama said that, as president, he would talk to anti-American dictators without precondition. He didnt mention that he would also give them historic policy concessions without precondition. His surprise unilateral change in the U.S. posture toward the Castro dictatorship came without even the pretense of serious promises by the Cubans to reform their kleptocratic, totalitarian rule. The trade of Alan Gross, the American aid worker jailed in Cuba for the offense of trying to help Jewish Cubans get on the Internet, for three Cuban spies is understandable (we also got back one of our spies, and Cuba released several dozen political prisoners as a sweetener). The rest of Obamas sweeping revisions diplomatic relations and the loosening of every economic sanction he can plausibly change on his own are freely granted, no questions asked. It is quid with no pro quo. There is no doubt that economic sanctions are a blunt and dubious instrument, and reasonable people can disagree about their wisdom (Ive gone back and forth about the Cuban embargo through the years). But dictatorial regimes hate them for a reason. All things considered, they want more economic wherewithal rather than less. Cuba is heavily dependent on the largesse of its ideological partner Venezuela, whose irrational, left-wing policies have helped trash its economy. Just as the Cuban dictatorship faces the dire prospect of the collapse of Venezuelas support, here comes El Yanqui to cushion the blow. The Castro regime will take a cut of the increased trade, remittances and tourism that will spring from Obamas concessions. Consider tourism. The Cuban military has an enormous holding company called GAESA. One of its companies, Gaviota, operates an extensive network of hotels and resorts, according to the strategic consultancy Stratfor. Imagine if the Pentagon owned the Marriott and Hilton hotel chains. That is the Cuban tourism industry in a nutshell. About a million Canadian tourists go to Cuba every year. In total, more than 2 million tourists visit annually, and yet the Castro regime is still standing. It is true, of course, that the embargo which Obama cant lift on his own hasnt ended the Castro regime. On the other hand, there is little reason to believe that lifting the embargo will end it, either. Our vast trade with China hasnt yet made Beijing any less repressive. The Cuba embargo is condemned as a relic of the Cold War, but it is the regime itself that is a relic, an inhuman jackboot left over from the era when people actually professed to believe in workers paradises. There are holdout believers, still. The liberal elite has often treated Fidel Castro as a cute, plucky figure of defiance, and even now, the government has determined apologists in the U.S. Congress. If Cuba were a racist apartheid-style system rather than a communist dictatorship, no one would be so eager to do business with it. The great and good celebrate the Obama changes as the end of an era. But they will replenish the coffers of a Cold War regime that is stubbornly still standing. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Fighting for the climate in the heart of the worldLima, the capital of Peru, has become a city of gustatory renown, attracting foodies from the world over to sample dishes from its famous ceviche to favorites from the Andean highlands. So it was an appropriate place, perhaps, for what has become a genuine movable feast, the world-roving series of summits organized by the United Nations to tackle the crisis of climate change. This years meeting, known as COP 20, the 20th Conference of Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, was the last high-level meeting with presidents and prime ministers before the December 2015 climate summit in Paris. The Paris meeting is supposed to produce an extension of the Kyoto Protocol, a new, global, legally binding treaty that restricts global warming to an increase in average global temperatures to just 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). As such, all eyes are on Paris. But if the devil is in the details, it is here in Lima that the details are being worked out. You cant spell climate without L-I-M-A.First, its necessary to understand the setting, and who is at the table and who is not. Inside, the summit proceeds in an orderly manner, with U.N. police standing watch and a rarified air of diplomatic decorum. It is hard to feel any sense of urgency. This is astounding, as the science is clear: The world is warming rapidly, and without action, catastrophic climate change will soon become irreversible. The official COP 20 was held on the grounds of the Peruvian army headquarters ominously named El Pentagonito, or the little Pentagon. In this militarized zone, the U.N. climate summit occurs in a Potemkin village, with formal ceremonies and intermittent, preapproved protests. The imagery is not lost on many Peruvians organizing for climate justice. Wilfredo Saavedra Marreros, president of the Environmental Defense Front of Cajamarca, told Democracy Now!: Its a farce. ... The representatives of the states of the world are meeting in a place that is stained with blood. In the Pentagonito, that military base, they have extrajudicially executed our brothers, they have burned them, they have disappeared them. Outside, in the bustling city streets of Lima, a city of more than 8 million people with interminable traffic jams, grass-roots activists hosted their own cumbre de los pueblos, a peoples summit on climate change, in a public park across town. On Dec. 10, Human Rights Day, thousands of people marched through the streets, demanding genuine action on climate change. Pascoe Sabido, with the group Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO), organized both inside and outside the COP 20. Together with other groups he released a report titled Corporate Conquistadors: The Many Ways Multinationals Both Drive and Profit From Climate Destruction. At one action inside, Sabido and others descended on a meeting sponsored by oil giants Shell, Chevron and other fossil-fuel interests. There were lots and lots of very angry and active people there trying to protest against the presence of the fossilfuel industry here in these talks, he later told me. Twenty years weve been going without progress towards a fair, ambitious climate deal that we need. One of the big reasons is because of the aggressive lobbying of the fossil-fuel industry, both at the national level and here in the talks. Another organizer at COP 20 was the Nigerian environmental leader Nnimmo Bassey. He said: Before I left Nigeria, my temperature was gauged twice, to determine if I have high fever or if I have Ebola. Now, the temperature of the Earth has gone 0.8 degrees above preindustrial levels. If the Earth was to go through the same process ... it wouldve been quarantined because the Earth wouldve been judged to have high fever or Ebola. But, we cant quarantine the Earth. We need to find who are the climate criminals and quarantine them. Its also important to note who wasnt at COP 20. Yeb Sano was the lead climate negotiator for the Philippines last year. To the shock of many, he was pulled from the delegation this year and stayed home, as his nation was devastated by Typhoon Hagupit. Sano tweeted: They can silence my mouth. But they cannot silence my soul. Sano made waves at COP 19 in Warsaw, Poland. The Philippines was being hit then by Typhoon Haiyan. Sano wasnt sure if his family had survived. In an emotional address to the summit, he said: If not us, then who? If not now, then when? If not here, then where? Many climate activists from the Philippines think concerted pressure from the U.S. and European governments prompted Sanos removal, as he was becoming a forceful proponent of climate justice for the Global South. Atossa Soltani, founder of the nonprofit organization Amazon Watch, told me that, despite all the COPs deficiencies, shes glad this global gathering is here in Peru, where more than 60 percent of the country an area the size of Texas is rain forest. Its the first COP ever in an Amazon country. And the Amazon is incredibly important in the climate debate. ... Its the heart of the planet, pumping moisture and vapor, Soltani said. Thats why this COP is important-to put the Amazon on the map, to put indigenous rights central to the debate, and to call for the end of the fossil-fuel era. Thats why were here.

One Book Southwest Florida welcomes subject of Gertrudas OathMichael Stolowitzky will greet audiences in Naples, Fort MyersThe story of Michael Stolowitzky and his nanny Gertruda could have been a suspense novel, but instead, author Ram Oren, the John Grisham of Israel, wrote a non-fiction book that, if one did not know was true, would certainly be thought to be a fabulous fictional tale.Mr. Orens book, The Oath, was published in 2007 in Hebrew and soon became a best-seller in Israel. The book has since been translated into eight languages. The English version, Gertrudas Oath: A Child, a Promise, and a Heroic Escape During World War II, was selected for the inaugural One Book Southwest Florida reading program based on the successful One Book One Community programs in towns and cities across the U.S. The goal of One Book programs is to engage the community in dialogue, to promote understanding and to serve as a springboard for discussion of universal topics such as loyalty, justice, family and faith. Mr. Stolowitzky, the only son of a wealthy Jewish family in Poland, was just 3 years old when World War II broke out. After suffering a severe stroke, his dying mother asked Gertruda Babilinska, the familys devoted Catholic nanny, to make a fateful promise: that Gertruda would get Michael to safety in Palestine and raise him there as her own son. The book presents a story of extraordinary courage and moral strength in the face of horrific wartime events, and pays tribute to Gertrudas commitment to Michael and his family. A charming gentleman now in his 70s, Mr. Stolowitzky visits Southwest Florida in January to talk about his remarkable journey and the nanny who saved his life. He will make three presentations, signing copies of Gertrudas Oath at each. Attendance is free, but reservations are required for each of the following: 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 6, at Lakes Regional Library, 15290 Bass Road, Fort Myers.

Gertrudas Oath discussion groups are now being held throughout Southwest Florida. For dates, times and locations, visit holocaustmuseumSWFL.org. Copies of Gertrudas Oath are available for checkout at public libraries in Collier and Lee counties and are on sale at the Holocaust Museum & Education Center in Naples. The One Book Southwest Florida reading program and Mr. Stolowitzkys appearances are a collaborative effort by the following organizations: Collier County Public Library System, the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, Temple Shalom, GenShoah of Southwest Florida (an organization for children of Holocaust survivors), Lee County Library System and the Jewish Federation of Lee and Charlotte Counties. o L B 5 a R H C 9 S C t s t F v a li Michael Stolowitzky, the subject of Gertrudas Oath, with various editions of the best-seller by Ram Oren.

The award will be presented at the 2015 NWWF: Imagine the Possibilities, Jan. 23-25 at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. For almost a quarter of a century, the Araujos have been involved with Napa Valley winegrowing as owners of one of Californias most historic vineyard sites, the Eisele Vineyard. A fifth-generation Californian, Mr. Araujo has ties to ranching and years of business experience that prepared him well for the task of developing and managing a world-class wine estate. Mrs. Araujos formal training in landscape architecture influenced all aspects of the estate, including the vineyard, winery, olive groves and fruit and vegetable gardens. We couldnt think of more fitting recipients for this inaugural award, says Sandi Moran, vintner chair and co-chair of the upcoming festival. The Araujos first attended NWWF as featured vintners in 2002 and have returned every year since. In total, their donated auction lots have generated more than $1.1 million, and their wine has been a favorite among festival patrons. To be recognized by this extraordinary group for what we have accomplished in the world of wine is a singular honor, Mr. Araujo says, adding the award also reinforces the importance of wine as a catalyst for philanthropy. In July 2013, after receiving an unsolicited expression of interest, the couple sold their storied Araujo Estate and its Eisele Vineyard to the Pinault family, the French owners of Chteau Latour. They have acquired a new home in Oakville, Calif., with a cabernet sauvignon vineyard, and another property in the St. Helena appellation with more cabernet vineyards and a permit to build a winery. The first wines under their new label, Accendo Cellars, will be released in 2015. Ticket to the 2015 NWWF start at $8,500 per couple, with a $20,000 package that includes reserved seating for a party of four at the same vintner dinner and at the live auction.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 Linda Burke counts herself among the lucky few who find the ideal mate early on in life. In her case, lightning struck on her first day of high school. Thats when she and fellow 10th grader Gary Lee Burke first set eyes on each other. He didnt speak to me or anything, but that was it it was all over, Mrs. Burke recalls about that initial encounter in their hometown of Fruitport, Mich. They were smitten from the start, but shyness kept the love-struck teens from talking, much less dating, until their junior year. What began with exchanged glances led to a storybook marriage of almost 45 years a union cut short by Lee Burkes unexpected death in April. I have to be thankful that I found him and we had a good life together, says Mrs. Burke. Some people never find an appropriate partner. She describes him as being witty, lighthearted, loving, kind, compassionate and protective and a loyal friend. He was just a really good person. Even babies liked him, she says with a chuckle. I could hold a baby and it would scream. He would hold it and it would calm right down. The couples years together were highlighted by their shared loves for biking, hiking, history and travel, especially to Europe, where they toured the continents cathedrals. Along the way, there were also shared academic and professional achievements. Mr. Burke earned a bachelors degree in business and math from Michigan State University, where Mrs. Burke, the owner of Linda Burke Interiors in Naples, earned a bachelors in interior design and a masters degree in art with a focus on health-care design. After college, he worked as an engineer for 21 years in Michigan, retiring 1986 when the couple moved to Naples. After relocating, they opened Burke & Burke Design Interiors and Mr. Burke later owned and operated Lee Burke Painting and Montys Framing. But before college graduation and embarking on careers, the Vietnam War interrupted the couples lives. Mr. Burke was a U.S. Army infantryman in the jungles of Vietnam and Cambodia. He earned a Purple Heart, two Bronze Stars and an Air Medal for valor. The horrors of war left their mark, but Mrs. Burke says her husband did a good job of keeping the demons at bay while working as an engineer. They (veterans) can suppress it and keep it in a box, but he had severe PTSD as he got older, she says. He tried very hard to work through it. He tried to help other veterans, too. He spent hours with other veterans. A member of the Fort Myers Chapter of the Combat Infantrymans Association for 24 years, Mr. Burke spent a lot of time at the Veterans Administration Bay Pines Outpatient Clinic in Naples, sharing experiences with other combat vets. One of the people who had occasion to see Mr. Burke struggle with PTSD was his friend Ken Andexler. The two met eight years ago at Montys Framing when Mr. Andexler, a visual artist and poet, stopped in to utilize Mr. Burkes services. They hit it off and formed a friendship that found Mr. Andexler stopping by at least once a month to chat. On one visit, Mr. Andexler unexpectedly found Mr. Burke feeling troubled by thoughts of the war. He was one of the first to go into Cambodia. Those events that occurred, he couldnt get them out of his mind, Mr. Andexler says. He had a great heart and really felt for the people he was with in Vietnam. Mr. Andexler penned the following poem based on Mr. Burkes combat experience. He completed it just one week before his friends passing on April 30. Ode to Burke By Ken Andexler The fight in Vietnam, carried on and on the year was 9, the draft was full blown the boys became very rapidly men, and the men they became, when they slept in water way up to their necks, with their guns and ammo above their heads. The Cong would cross their paths, two or so would be dead. Ten or more ssh! Let em pass. The tank ride one day, His friend wanted to trade places, the bomb hit, and His friend ended up dead. And on His new ride, a neighbor, his head blown apart landed on His lap and across His face. Death still did not pass Him for a body bag He lay in Him the helicopter ride to the morgue shook Him Hey! This ones still alive! For why? For why? Why? For why? Forty-five years later those memories never faded, those war anniversary dates shook him dearly, again and again; those times, He could not surrender. A man, a friend, hed do almost anything for anyone! Kindness and gentleness surrounded his sound character! But now, the blood in His heart filled His belly. His gut could take no more. His heart finally collapsed, drained, from that Vietnam War. His partner rushed Him in, forty-five years of pain, it finally, surrendered His mind. He bled, He bled and, the Gentle Man a True Purple Heart recipient capped the day in intensive care. He saved so many lives in that useless war, His M-60 sliced the enemy in half. He fought to save His own life and the others, too, that He spared. For after all, its the governments war, The Mans War to Survive. Today, I prayed that He could survive, get His butt out of bed, and walk the past no more. But there are no body bags in Heaven for He, already, was headed there. Some people live their lives loudly, the way a silence-piercing sound demands attention from anyone within earshot. Bombast, however, was not the way of Marianne Tirri Kramer, a private, astute, soft-spoken woman with a gentle smile who chose a more subtle, but no less powerful, path. The owner of Sassos International Cuisine & Seafood restaurant on Marco Island, Mrs. Kramer, 51, passed away in September after a brief illness. In ways large and small, hers was a life in which advancing the lot of her fellow man was a priority, recalls her husband of six year, Fred Kramer, an attorney on Marco. She was just a very loving and caring person, he says. She always tried to help others. She was also very involved with charities, almost always on an anonymous basis. One of the things she took a lot of pride in was helping people improve their lives. Childrens medical research was a cherished cause. In years past, Mrs. Kramer had served on the board of directors and as president of a large charitable foundation. She also was a supporter of Zoo Miami, that citys regional wildlife park. She moved to Marco from the Miami area 16 years ago, after falling in love with the islands beauty and the privacy of a small community, her husband says, adding the areas abundant boating and fishing were among her favorite pastimes and activities the couple enjoyed together. While Mrs. Kramers resume includes a career in the aviation industry, she made her professional mark on Marco in the restaurant business, an industry that shed grown up with in the Philadelphia area. She opened Sassos nine years ago and the Mediterranean-styled bistro became an island favorite. Mrs. Kramer was anything but an absentee owner, having a hand in all aspects of the eaterys operations, from the kitchen, to the dining room, to the front of the house. She was fully committed to the restaurant, says Mr. Kramer. Literally, she was there every day. They also shared ownership in a business adjacent to Sassos, the Marco Golf and Garden miniature golf course, which features lushly landscaped gardens, interspersed with ponds. Designing the putt-putt cour se, which opened in 2013, was a collaborative process for the couple. Their plans included eventually extending the gardens from the course to the restaurant, which offers al fresco dining. That feature will become a reality, vows Mr. Kramer. She enjoyed life, was his response when asked to recount a story that illustrates who Marianne Tirri K r amer was as a person. She loved to smile and she loved to see other people smile. Mr. Kramer is equally concise in describing the legacy she hoped to leave amongst those whose lives she touched: Shed like to be remembered for just trying to do good and to make things better for others.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 NEWS A9 Rene Anderson Fiorenza was blessed with an ability to uplift others with an all-embracing joie de vivre. My mom was a very upbeat, fun, a really positive person, recalls her daughter, Melody Pickel. She always saw the glass as half full. She just was a fun, personable person. She lived every day completely to the fullest. Mrs. Fiorenza died unexpectedly in March, after being struck by a car in her North Naples neighborhood. The 86-year-olds sunny disposition stood in sharp contrast to the harshness she experienced as a girl who happened to be born Jewish in Berlin, during Adolph Hitlers rise to power. Born Ellen Renate Barczinski in 1927, hers was a life of privilege, thanks to a corporate attorney father, Dr. Arthur Barczinski, and a mother, Hildegard, who was an entrepreneur. But that life of comfort and security was transformed as the 1930s drew to a close. Mrs. Fiorenza was one of the fortunate ones the Jews able to emigrate and find asylum before the Nazis campaign of extermination reached its zenith. For her, that blessing occurred at age 12, with her inclusion in the Kindertransport rescue mission, in which Jewish children were sent to England to live with sponsor families. But before finding refuge across the sea, she experienced the horrific terror of Kristallnacht. Known as The Night of Broken Glass, Kristallnacht saw coordinated attacks on Jews, their homes, businesses and synagogues throughout Germany and Austria by Nazi storm troopers, members of the SS and the Hitler Youth, Nov. 9-10, 1938. Dr. Barczynski was imprisoned by the Nazis, but then released before the wars start. He then traveled to England in 1938 to prepare a place for his wife and three children. After arriving in London in January 1939, Mrs. Fiorenza continued her schooling. Her mother eventually escaped to London as well, as did her two brothers, who fought with the English against Germany. The entire family survived the war. At 18, after the wars conclusion, she returned to Germany to work as a translator for the U.S. government. While there, she met her first husband, the late Blaine Anderson, who retired as a major in the U.S. Army. After immigrating to Canada, she joined Mr. Anderson in America where they married and had two children, Melody and Mark. Both Mr. Anderson and her second husband, Carl Fiorenza, preceded her in death. Mrs. Pickel believes her mothers approach to life helped her survive the experiences of her youth. She didnt look back, she didnt look forward, she says. She was the ultimate survivor. Thats what my husband (Gary) called her. She didnt let anything bad affect her. She just made the best of everything. She lived her life passionately every day. Despite everything, Mrs. Fiorenza harbored no ill will toward the German people, although the trials she experienced werent something she liked to discuss. She preferred to concentrate on what was happening right now and what was happening to other people, her daughter says. Intelligent and savvy, at the time of her death she was still active, making plans with friends and family. Mrs. Pickel also describes her mother as having been loving and involved as a parent and as grandmother to her two children, Jonathan and David. It wasnt like she had an apron on and was hugging and kissing, she adds. It wasnt like she was the traditional grandmother who was baking you cookies. She wanted to know what you were doing and could she help? Mrs. Fiorenza contributed her life story to the Oral/Visual History Project of the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. The project preserves for posterity the testimonies of the regions Holocaust survivors, liberators, resisters and witnesses. Over the years, she often attended programs at the museum and brought friends there, says Amy Snyder, the institutions executive director. The radiance of Mrs. Fiorenzas personality made a mark that still echoes through the facility. She was very vivacious, Ms. Snyder says. She always had something to say that brought a smile to your face. Every time I saw her, she had a smile on her face and was ready to go, whatever was happening. S ascha B ontes life was unfolding as normal during the summer of 2013. As always, the vital, upbeat 44 year-old maintained a busy schedule at his popular Marco Island shop, Saschas Salon & Day Spa. Mr. Bonte also found time for fun, taking part, that July, in the worlds oldest and largest bike-touring event, (The Des Moines) Registers Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. But that air of regularity the sometimes pleasurable, sometimes not ebb and flow of life sl owly and inexorably began to change upon his return to Southwest Florida. I think he started to feel that something wasnt right in August, his wife, Patricia, says. When he came back (from Iowa), he was very fatigued. And then the headaches started. He didnt think anything of it, but then his vision started to get bad. It got worse and worse and worse. The eye doctor told him it was something neurological. Mr. Bonte thought overwork was the culprit, but it was instead something infinitely more serious: a brain tumor. The diagnosis came after he consulted with doctors in his hometown of Stuttg art, Germany, where hed traveled to spend the Christmas holidays with his wife and their son Daniel, then 15, who reside there. An operation removed a tumor, but complications from the procedure resulted in Mr. Bontes death in September. He was 45. The couple had been separated for three of their 15 years of marriage, but remained close. He was my best friend, says Mrs. Bonte. We were like brother and sister. We always loved each other. When he got his diagnosis, when he was ill, he came to us. That shows you the kind of relationship we had. He knew he could always come to us. A hairstylist for both women and men, Mr. Bonte was known for his sense of humor, generosity, honesty and compassion, and his love of fitness and motorcycles. His motto was live and let live, says Mrs. Bonte. He didnt hold grudges. He just loved life, and you can tell by how many people loved him. He was very centered, ambitious, very hard working. Ive never known a person who worked as hard as he always did. The Bontes fi rst met in St uttg art, when Mrs. Bonte went to his salon there seeking a fix for a hair-coloring attempt gone wrong. Correcting the misfire took several visits and led to Mr. Bonte asking her out on a date. They dated for about one year before marrying in 1998. In 2002, the couple moved to Marco, where her parents reside. In 2003, Mr. Bonte opened Saschas Salon & Day Renee Anderson FiorenzaShe was the ultimate survivor.

He had no filter. What he wanted to say, he said and nine times out of 10, it was funny. Ms. Bromley was his last client, getting her hair cut on Christmas Eve morning last year, mere hours before Mr. Bontes flight to Germany. She was not aware, until much later, of his health struggles and the difficulty they posed where his craft and his livelihood were concerned. He was a genius at what he did, she says. His vision was so bad, he had to cut by feel. And let me tell you, it was a perfect haircut. In lieu of an obituary, Mrs. Bonte penned this farewell in her husbands honor, expressing what she believes he would say to those who knew him: A lot has been written about me the last 12 years, and as you read this I will be in heaven with my parents. Now I would like to be able to have the last word concerning me. As the most of you know, my family and I moved to Florida in 2002. At that time I did not have my cosmetology license, so I started renovating houses. I can tell you all, it was not easy for me; all I wanted was to do hair. My wish became reality after I bought a salon on Marco Island. The beginnings were very hard, as nobody on the island knew me or my talent yet. I had what I thought was a great idea to offer inexpensive childrens haircuts. I will now admit that I wanted to bait you moms into my shop to convince you that I could be the best hairstylist for you. Needless to say, my plan worked. So month by month and year by year my client base grew. I thank you for the trust that you continued to show me through the years I can truly say I consider you all part of the family. All families can be dysfunctional at times, but at the end of the day, we worked it out one way or the other. All my co-workers, customers, Marco friends and Naples friends, I had the honor and the privilege to be a part of your life. You made me laugh and some of you made me cry, but you all enriched my life. I was able to fulfill my biggest dreams of becoming a U.S. citizen and owning my own bike. Man, was I happy riding that machine. I lived a life many people dream of, and collectively all of you helped make that happen For that I am eternally grateful. The positive as well as the negative shape you to be the person you were intended to be. I know some of you were confused by my behavior over the last year. By December 2013, the tumor had become the size of a lighter. I named it George, and he was removed successfully. The bad thing was, they took out much of my healthy brain tissue, and after extensive radiation and chemo, my brain developed a nasty virus for which there is no cure. The virus infects every healthy brain cell and shuts it down. The cancer did not kill me, but the treatment did. I kept on fighting till the end. If you ask me would I do it all over again, I would answer, Heck yeah, but only if I could play with the same actors and on the same stage again. Thank you all for being a part of my learning experience. We will meet again. Until then, live life to the fullest with no regrets.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 NEWS A11 Stella Thomas struggle to conquer the tumor relentlessly growing from her brain was a long one. As she endured the invaders debilitating effects and those of the medical treatments it entailed, the wife, mother of three and grandmother of seven also strove to ease her loved ones concerns. She never complained, never complained, Peter Thomas says of his wife of 68 years. She just tried to reassure everybody. She didnt want anyone to worry. But we sure did. I did. Mrs. Thomas battle ended on June 13, when she succumbed to complications of the tumor. She was 89. It went on for many years and then she went into dementia, says Mr. Thomas, 91. She was not the same at the end, but she was still herself. It was a terrible thing for me to go through, to see her suffer. She was at Avow (Hospice of Naples) and they were wonderful. But she finally died and I dont think I will ever get over it. Its like a part of yourself is gone. The Naples residents lives together began during high school in their hometown of Pensacola. Mr. Thomas first encountered the former Stella Barrineau when he spotted her at a dance. He was then 16 and working part time at a local radio station, the start of a career that has seen him become a renowned commercial voiceover artist and narrator for television. He asked a buddy for her name and phone number and jotted both down on an envelope. The following night, on his radio show, he dedicated a recording of You Are My Sunshine to her and then recited Elizabeth Barrett Brownings Sonnet 43, which opens with the lines, How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. That quixotic, inexplicable, crazy little thing called love had Mr. Thomas in its grasp. She was a beautiful dancer, so graceful, he says. There was a goodness about her, a genuine goodness, which I think she carried through her life. I just fell in love with her immediately. Id just never met anybody that I felt that way about. When he was headed overseas to fight in World War II as a member of the U.S. Army, his last phone call was to her rather than his parents. I couldnt tell her where I was going, he recalls. I could just say, Hello, darling. I love you. They corresponded the entire time he was overseas. All the way through, she would have the most encouraging letters, he says. After his return, they married in 1946. Mrs. Thomas played an integral role in her husbands career during their marriage. (Over the years, his voice has been heard narrating such TV shows as Forensic Files, PBS Nova and Mystery Detectives as well as on advertisements for Burger King and on ESPNs Monday Night Football previews.) He would read scripts to her, seeking her approval; she used her business degree from Florida State College for Women (now Florida State University) to handle his finances and run their household. We were like a team, he says. Now with her gone, Im still going on, but its the hardest thing Ive ever gone through. She was my star. Everybody that knew her loved her.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 Cliche come to lifeFor her Advanced Placement World History class at Magnolia (Texas) West High School in December, Reagan Hardin constructed an elaborate diorama of a Middle Ages farm which her dog ate on the night before it was due. Veterinarian Carl Southern performed the necessary scoping-out on Roscoe, extracting the plastic chicken head, horse body, sheep and pig, along with wire that held the display together. Warned Dr. Southern: Dont put anything past your dog. We all say my dog would never eat that, and thats the main thing hell eat.The entrepreneurial spirit Meg C Jewelry Gallery of Lexington, Ky., introduced a limited line of Kentucky-centric gold-plated necklaces and earrings in June (recently touted for Christmas!) each dangling with genuine Kentucky Fried Chicken bones. All stems were picked clean from KFC wings, washed, dried, sealed with varnish and conductive paint, copper-electroformed, and then electroplated with 14k gold. Small-bone necklaces go for $130 (large, $160), and earrings for $200 a pair and according to Meg C, accessorize anything from jeans to a ladys best little black dress. Ethical fur designer Pamela Paquin debuted the first of her anticipated line of roadkill furs recently raccoon neck muffs (I can literally take two raccoons and put them butt to butt (so they) clasp neck to neck) that will sell for around $1,000. Raccoons yield luscious fur, she said, but her favorite pelt is otter. The Massachusetts woman leaves her card with various New England road crews (Hi, my name is Pamela. Will you call me when you have roadkill?) and does business under the name Petite Mort (little death in French, but also, she said, a euphemism for a womans post-orgasm sensations). Not too long ago, generous job perquisites were, perhaps, health insurance and little more, but Silicon Valley startups now race to outdo each other in dreaming up luxuries to pamper workers. A November Wall Street Journal report noted that the photo-sharing service Pinterest offers employee classes in the martial art muay thai and in August brought in an artisanal jam maker to create after-work cocktails a far cry from most workplaces, which offer, perhaps, a vending machine downstairs. (Several companies have hired hotel-concierge professionals to come manage their creative addons.) Not every perk is granted, though: Pinterest turned down an employees request to install a zip line directly to a neighborhood bar.Chutzpah Jose Manuel Marino-Najera filed a lawsuit in Tucson, Ariz., in December against the U.S. Border Patrol because a K-9 dog had bitten his arm repeatedly during an arrest. Marino-Najera, illegally in the U.S., had been found sleeping under a tree near the Mexican border, holding 49 pounds of marijuana. Ms. Emerald White, owner of four pit bulls declared dangerous by Texas City, Texas, after they mauled a neighbors beagle to death, filed a lawsuit in November against the grieving neighbor. White said she had been injured trying to restrain her dogs in the skirmish, which had been facilitated by the neighbors failure to fix their common fence.Not as sturdy as they used to beSome students at Harvard, Columbia and Georgetown law schools demanded in December that professors postpone final exams because those lawyers-intraining were too traumatized by the grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Miss., and New York City, which cost them sleep and made them despair of the legal systems lack of integrity. (Critics cited by Bloomberg Business Week suggested that lawyers who cannot function at a high level in the face of injustice might fare poorly in the profession.)Fine points of the law Gregory Graf, 53, has apparently escaped eligibility for death row in Pennsylv ania despite confessing to murdering his stepdaughter in an attempt to have sex with her (an accompanying felony, which ordinarily would qualify him for capital murder). However, since Graf had videotaped himself in the act (as evidence recovered in December shows), he proved that the sex occurred after she was dead and thus that he was guilty instead of an accompanying misdemeanor (desecration of a body). Caitlyn Ricci, 21 and estranged from her divorced parents, availed herself this year of a quirky New Jersey law that requires divorced parents to provide for their childrens college educations (even though Caitlyn was a toddler at the time of the divorce, chose a more expensive outof-state college, and already had a blemished community-college record). Mom Maura McGarvey (who claims to be especially hard-hit by the tuition bill) and Dad Michael Ricci are helping sponsor corrective legislation because, generally, parents are not required to pay for college (but in New Jersey, divorced parents are).The continuing crisisHistorians at the Wellcome Collection museum in London placed on display in November their rendition of the orgone energy accumulator developed in the 1940s by psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, who thought it could stimulate orgasms for those who sat inside one. (The device is thought to have inspired the Orgasmatron in the Woody Allen movie Sleeper. Among 1950s-era testers, Albert Einstein is said to have panned it, but not author J.D. Salinger.) The museums curator tried to lower expectations that visitors should expect a historic sex education and not a sexual experience.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 A13 Cache in and enjoy the thrill of the search at Rookery Bay Reserve SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYGeocaching has become a popular way of enjoying the outdoors since the international trend ramped up in 2000. Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is now using this technology to engage its visitors and has launched a new set of caches on the ground of its environmental learning center. The modern-day treasure hunting technique uses GPS-enabled devices such as smart phones. Participants find their desired cache online, download and navigate to its set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the container, or cache, hidden at that location. Once a cache is found, the finder makes a note in the logbook and on the geocaching website, replaces a trinket inside with one of his or her own and takes away a greater understanding of the natural and cultural features in the area. Geocaching is a great way for us to reach out to different user groups, says Jill Schmid, geographic information systems specialist for the Rookery Bay Reserve. This is an audience that might not have found out about the reserve or our environmental learning center if our caches were not on the map, she adds. Four caches with varying levels of difficulty have been placed in the reserve. The first one was launched in the parking area in August and has had 14 finds. One of the newest multicaches includes Pioneers in Paradise near a cultural site on the Snail Trail. The other two caches, CatBird Loop and Slash Pine, take geocachers on a nature-filled walk along primitive trails. Comments shared with other users on the Geocaching.com website include, Great trails to hike on a super day! and Never been to the center before. Well be back for sure! A cache-in, trash-out motto is encouraged to minimize disturbance to natural sites. The Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center is at 300 Tower Road, off Collier Boulevard on the way to Marco Island. The reserve encompasses 110,000 acres of coastal lands and waters between Naples and Everglades National Park. It is managed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in cooperation with NOAA. For more information about the reserve, visit rookerybay.org.

Groundbreaking ceremony launches expansion at Grace Place for Children & Families SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMore than 150 guests showed their support at Grace Place for Children & Families groundbreaking ceremony marking commencement of construction of the campus expansion projects cornerstone building, the Van Domelen Education Center. The ceremony also honored William and Julia Van Domelen for their significant gift toward the building. The two-story, 6,333-square-foot multi-use classroom building is part of a 16,000-square-foot expansion for new classroom and program space to serve more students, operate more efficiently and effectively and foster learning. Because of the Van Domelens incredible generosity, Grace Place is able to begin putting the expansion plans into action, Stephanie Munz Campbell, executive director of the center, said. Grace Place currently serves 800 children and families in Golden Gate City each week with programs designed to minimize the education gap between families in middleand upper-income households and those families with household incomes that fall beneath these economic lines. At the groundbreaking celebration, Eileen Connolly-Keesler, president and CEO of the Community Foundation of Collier County, said recent statistics show that 30 percent of the resident of Golden Gate City live in poverty, with a per capita income of just below $15,000 as compared to more than $26,000 for the rest of Florida. She also said the area has the highest population density in Collier County, higher even than Immokalee. Language and literacy for children and adults are at the core of Grace Places educational programs, which include the nationally recognized Bright Beginnings program, which earned Grace Place the distinguished honor of becoming a Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy program provider. In addition, the centers Friday Food Pantry serves 200 families a week with a bag of basic groceries and additional bakery items, frozen meat, dairy products and fresh produce.

The Big Apple is no longer No. 1. Or even No. 2. By adding an average of 803 new residents each day between July 1, 2013 and July 1, 2014, Florida passed New York to become the nations third most populous state, according to U.S. Census Bureau state population estimates released Dec. 23. Floridas population grew by 293,000 over this period, reaching 19.9 million. The population of New York increased by 51,000 to 19.7 million, according to the bureau. California remained the nations most populous state in 2014, with 38.8 million residents, followed by Texas, at 27.0 million. Although the list of the 10 most populous states overall was unchanged, two other states did change positions, as North Carolina moved past Michigan to take the ninth spot. Another milestone took place in Georgia (ranked eighth), which saw its population surpass 10 million for the first time. North Dakota was the nations fastestgrowing state over the last year. Its population increased 2.2 percent, followed by the 1.7 percent growth in Nevada and Texas. Each of the 10 fastest-growing states was in the South or West with the exception of North Dakota. Six states lost population between July 1, 2013, and July 1, 2014: Illinois (9,972 or -0.08 percent), West Virginia (3,269 or -0.18 percent), Connecticut (2,664 or -0.07 percent), New Mexico (1,323 or -0.06 percent, Alaska (527 or -0.07 percent) and Vermont (293 or -0.05 percent). The United States as a whole saw its population increase by 2.4 million to 318.9 million, or 0.75 percent. In addition to the 50 states and the District of Columbia, the new statistics also include estimates for Puerto Rico. On July 1, 2014, Puerto Rico had an estimated population of 3.5 million, a decline of 47,000, or 1.3 percent, from one year earlier. The Census Bureau produces population estimates each year, allowing the public to gauge the growth and demographic composition of the nation, states and communities. These statistics use administrative data to estimate population change between census years, using the decennial census count as a starting point. Local governments use estimates to locate services, and estimates are used by the private sector to locate businesses. The Census Bureau also released estimates of the number of people 18 and older in the U.S., states and Puerto Rico. The downloadable file also includes total population and the percentage of people 18 and older. Internet address: During 2015, the Census Bureau will release estimates of the 2014 population of counties, cities and towns, and metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas as well as national, state and county population estimates by age, sex, race and Hispanic origin.

Engine PartsUflex RotechSteering System $134.95 New biblical scholarship class similar to seminary curriculumA class in biblical scholarship begins Sunday, Jan. 4, immediately after the worship service at Mooring Presbyterian Church. Sponsored by the church and the Theological Center in Naples, the class will be led by Revs. Sam and Bunny Sewell from 11:15 a.m. to noon every Sunday.The Sewells, who have been teaching biblical scholarship in Naples for more than two decades, explain that the class is very different from Bible study in that it aims to provide a curriculum similar to that which is taught at accredited seminaries. Topics include how the Bible was written, how scholars reconcile apparent inconsistencies and how individuals can strengthen their faith by learning how the Bible applies to todays world. The primary resource for the curriculum is the Interpreters Bible, for which the instructors own the digital software and the 12-volume set. The complete set is also available in the church library. Participants in the class should bring their own Bible along with a notepad, pen or pencil and highlighter. The contributors to the study materials reflect a wide range of Roman Catholic, Protestant and Jewish backgrounds and bring a wealth of fresh perspectives to biblical interpretation. Attendance is free, although freewill offerings will be appreciated. Register by signing up in the foyer at Moorings Presbyterian Church or by calling or emailing the Sewells at 591-4565 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Music lessons help kids tune in to more than their instruments THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHChildren who play the violin or study piano could be learning more than just Mozart. A University of Vermont College of Medicine child psychiatry team has found that musical training might also help kids focus their attention, control their emotions and diminish their anxiety. Their research is published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. Dr. James Hudziak, professor of psychiatry and director of the Vermont Center for Children, Youth and Families, and colleagues including Matthew Albaugh, Ph.D., and graduate student research assistant Eileen Crehan, call their study the largest investigation of the association between playing a musical instrument and brain development. The research continues Dr. Hudziaks work with the National Institutes of Health Magnetic Resonance Imagine Study of Normal Brain Development. Using its database, the team analyzed the brain scans of 232 children ages 6 to 18. As children age, the cortex the outer layer of the brain changes in thickness. In previous analysis of MRI data, Dr. Hudziak and his team discovered that cortical thickening or thinning in specific areas of the brain reflected the occurrence of anxiety and depression, attention problems, aggression and behavior control issues even in healthy kids those without a diagnosis of a disorder or mental illness. With this study, Dr. Hudziak wanted to see whether a positive activity, such as music training, would influence those indicators in the cortex. The study supports The Vermont Family Based Approach, a model Dr. Hudziak created to establish that the entirety of a young persons environment parents, teachers, friends, pets, extracurricular activities contributes to his or her psychological health. Music is a critical component in my model, he says. The authors found evidence they expected: that music playing altered the motor areas of the brain, because the activity requires control and coordination of movement. Even more important to Dr. Hudziak, however, were changes in the behaviorregulating areas of the brain. For example, music practice influenced thickness in the part of the cortex that relates to executive functioning, including working memory and attentional control, as well as organization and planning for the future, the authors write. A childs musical background also appears to correlate with cortical thickness in brain areas that play a critical role in inhibitory control, as well as aspects of emotion processing. The findings bolster Dr. Hudziaks hypothesis that a violin might help a child battle psychological disorders even better than a bottle of pills. We treat things that result from negative things, but we never try to use positive things as treatment, he says. Such an approach may prove difficult to accomplish. According to the studys authors, research from the U.S. Department of Education indicates that threequarters of U.S. high school students rarely or never take extracurricular lessons in music or the arts. Such statistics, when taken in the context of our present neuroimaging results, the authors write, underscore the vital importance of finding new and innovative ways to make music training more widely available to youths, beginning in childhood. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 Learn more at www.RiverchaseDermatology.com HEALTHY LIVING Give blood,the gift that can save livesThe gift of life-saving blood is truly the perfect color, size and shape for a local patient in need.

Call to reserve your seat! (239) 415-7576 Come hear about: All participants: Cold weather increases potentialfor carbon monoxide poisoningsCarbon monoxide poisoning is a year-round threat. However, as temperatures drop, the potential for CO poisonings rises. There have been several recent incidents leading to hospitalizations and even deaths in Florida. CO is a highly poisonous gas produced by burning fuels such as gasoline, natural gas, propane, kerosene, charcoal and wood. CO from these sources can build up in enclosed or partially enclosed spaces. The risk of illness or death increases with the level of CO in the air and the amount of time exposed. Dangerous CO levels can result when home appliances are not properly maintained or when used incorrectly. Carbon monoxide can silently cause illness and death within minutes of exposure, says Dr. Kendra Goff, a toxicologist for the Florida Department of Health. It is invisible, tasteless, odorless and non-irritating, which is why taking precautions is vital and having sufficient working CO alarms in your home is critical. Proper use of generators, portable space heaters or gas grills can protect you and your family from the tragedy of an accidental poisoning. Since symptoms of CO poisoning are similar to those of the flu and food poisoning, you might not think CO poisoning is the cause. The common signs and symptoms include headache, nausea, weakness, abdominal discomfort/pain, dizziness and confusion. Other signs and symptoms can include blurred vision, numbness and tingling, ataxia (loss or lack of muscular coordination), irritability, agitation, chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, seizures and loss of consciousness. Anyone who suspects symptoms of CO poisoning should go outside without delay and seek prompt medical attention. If a person has collapsed or is not breathing, call 911 for emergency medical assistance immediately from a safer location such as outside or from a neighbors home. Children, pregnant women and individuals with heart conditions are most vulnerable. Here are some tips to help prevent CO poisoning: Never use a gas stove or oven to heat the home. Never burn charcoal inside a house, garage, vehicle or tent, including in a fireplace. Avoid using unvented gas, propane or kerosene heaters in enclosed spaces, especially sleeping areas. Inspect the exhaust system of each fuel-burning appliance every year, including chimneys, flues and vents. Check for blockage, holes and disconnections. Never leave an automobile running in a garage, even with the garage door open. Do not leave the rear window or tailgate of a vehicle open while driving. CO from the exhaust can be pulled inside the car, van or camper. Never use a portable generator or a fuel-powered tool indoors or in other enclosed or partially enclosed areas. Always place portable generators outdoors on a dry surface far away from doors, windows, vents and air conditioning equipment that could allow CO to enter. Orient the generator so that it is placed with the exhaust port pointing away from the home. For more information about suspected poisoning emergencies, call the Florida Poison Information Center at (800) 222-1222. Parkinson Association presents Richard London with Life HappensThe Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida invites members and guests to Life Happens: Key Life Lessons and How to Realize a More Fullfilling and Happy Life, from 1-3 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 13, at Hodges University. Guest speaker Richard London is an author and the host of the online talk show Parkinsons Chat with Richard London. Using the philosophy of his A Handbook for Life seminars, he has developed a thriving real estate investment business and started several computer companies, while overcoming multiple financial and physical obstacles. Mr. London has two children and is happily married to his wife of 28 years. Incorporating the concepts of his seminars has also enabled him to enjoy several very fulfilling avocations. Hes a third degree black belt and has practiced and taught martial arts for more than 27 years. He also has his commercial pilots license and was a major in the Civil Air Patrol. But most importantly, he says, he cherishes his relationships with everyone he comes in contact with. At 19, he was in a motorcycle accident that put him in and out of hospitals for 10 months. He has had a total of nine operations as a result of his accident. In 2003 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and two years later learned he has Parkinsons disease. Life is a test, he says. Its a test of perseverance, a test of faith and a test of will. Ive decided to pass the test. Admission to Mr. Londons presentation is free, but reservations are requested.

BY DR. MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickThe multibillion-dollar pet industry keeps coming up with ways to make our lives with animals better. Some are toys, some are veterinary products, some are home and pet-care items. I see them throughout the year as I travel to trade shows and veterinary conferences, and I try them out myself when possible or get my colleagues input. Here are 11 new products that I think are winners. KittyKaddy Double Diner and Torus Ceramic Diner. As I age I just turned 60 and feel stiffer it becomes harder to bend over. Thats when devices like this, which let you fill and clean pet food and water bowls without bending over, catch your eye. A long, detachable handle allows you to pick up the bowls easily. Zen Clipper. Most nail clippers either crush part of the nail when cutting or make it too easy to cut too close and hit a blood vessel or nerve. Ouch! The Zen Clipper slices the nail 360 degrees at once while preventing you from trimming too much. Tidy Cats LightWeight. Do you feel like you get a workout every time you pick up a container of cat litter? The folks who originated cat litter 50 years ago have developed a new litter that is lighter and more absorbent. Now my 89-year-old mother-in-law, Valdie, feels like Popeye as she carries a jug in each hand. Muffins Halo. I have a blind 14-yearold golden retriever, Shakira, who looks a little funny running around Almost Heaven Ranch in angel wings and a halo, but the halo protects her face and eyes the same way a face guard does on a football helmet. Now I dont have to worry that shell hurt herself running into things. Ultra Fel-O-Vax. Cats are small and vaccine volumes seem big, especially as theyre being injected. Ultra Fel-O-Vax has only half the volume of normal vaccines, making for a more comfortable vaccine experience. Thats what I call state-of-the-art technology with state-of-the-heart comfort. Galaxy Wands. Older cats seem to become kittens again when they play with these wands that mimic the movements of prey. I like the collapsible handles, which make storage easy assuming your cat lets you put it away. Ultra Duramune and BronchiShield Oral. These vaccines for dogs improve comfort level in two ways. Ultra Duramune has only half the volume of normal vaccines, so the injection doesnt last as long, and Bronchi-Shield Oral slides down the throat, preventing the gagging that often occurs during intranasal canine cough vaccines. Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Mazee. Talk about a brainteaser! This twist on a puzzle toy engages a dogs senses of sight, hearing and smell as he works to release the treats inside. Apoquel. Theres almost nothing worse than an itchy dog. This anti-itch medication is so powerful that the misery some dogs have endured for years is gone after the first dose. (Tip: Always read the label with your veterinarian to make sure a particular medication is appropriate for your dog.) Chuckit! Max Glow Kick Fetch. Nobody wants to come in from playing just because its dark, and that includes dogs. This ball not only glows in the dark, it has a special grooved design that makes it easy to pick up. Play on! Bissell PowerGlide Pet Vacuum. Everybody needs a vacuum cleaner, but this one has special features for pet owners: It picks up more dirt and hair, swivels around your furniture (where pet hair often collects), and has a filtration system to help reduce allergens. Plus $10 from each purchase ($20 in December) goes to the Bissell Pet Foundation to help homeless pets. Thats a win-win. These products help pets and their people live better. PET TALESTop new pet products10 new products and a bonus item to improve your life with your dogs and cats Pets of the Week>> King is a handsome 1-year-old bull terrier who weighs about 30 pounds. Hes good on his leash, has plenty of energy to play fetch and knows the basic commands and is eager to learn more. >> Lacey is a lovely, well-mannered 1-yearold domestic shorthair who has a sweet personality. >> Lucy is an approximately 2-year-old Labrador retriever mix who weighs about 40 pounds. Shes sweet, fun, friendly and full of energy. She is good on her leash and knows the basic commands. >> Pepe is a 7-month-old domestic shorthair who is as friendly as he is handsome. He loves to be held and petted.To adopt or foster a petThis weeks pets are from Collier County Domestic Animal Services. The adoption fee is $60 for cats and $85 for dogs and includes sterilization surgery, vaccinations, pet license, ID microchip and a bag of food.

THE DIVA DIARIESHeres to a hangover-free New Years DayThere was a time when your Diva just adored New Years Eve sparkling in a too-tiny $14.99 dress from the juniors rack at Ross Dress for Less and teetering in towering heels that would have tormented my tootsies had it not been for several glasses of champagne creating a comfortable numbing effect. Add to the picture of festiveness some big hair, big jewelry and even bigger expectations, and youve got the s and s New Years Eve party version of moi. I remember one sunny New Years Day when I was working at a tiki-type restaurant on Fort Myers Beach. We had to be there by 7 a.m. despite our New Years Eve shenanigans at a ladiesdrink-free dance club the night before. I was 25 and feeling quite peppy, ready to greet the first day of 1989, as I happily tied on my apron, whistling a little tune. My party partner from the night before, Karen, who was in her 40s, was moving slowly and groaning as if in pain. Whats wrong, Karen? I chirped (probably too loudly). Last night was a BLAST. Youre not coming down with something are you? Im so hung over. Please be quiet, child, she rasped. To which I innocently responded, Whats hung over? What does that mean? Its a miracle that Karen didnt kill me that morning. It wasnt until I began to age that I understood her misery. Karen only had a few glasses of cheap chardonnay at the club, but it didnt matter, because it seems the older you get, the harder you hang. I know. The couple of Cosmos that used to give you a little headache the next morning now infect you with full-on Vodka Flu for two days afterward. It is, obviously, not fair. But neither are colonoscopies something else that most 25-year-olds have never heard of. So, as we prepare to welcome 2015, its time for your Diva, as a public service to her dear readers, to roll out her annual list of New Years Eve preventive measures and New Years Day hangover cures. Some revelers will need a little bit of each, Im certain. Dont drink. Forgo the grape and offer instead to be the designated driver. Ive always maintained that theres a special place in heaven for designated drivers and not just for ensuring safer roads for all, but for putting up with obnoxious drunk people. Also, it is fully within your rights to hold blackmail photos/videos of your friends party antics and post them on Facebook should they ever dare cross you. Biggest advantage: No hangover. If you do imbibe, eat a hearty meal before the party. Im not talking about sushi or salad. You can start your diet on Jan. 1. Im talking about REAL FOOD, food that soaks up alcohol a bacon double cheeseburger and fries, perhaps, or macaroni and cheese and a loaf of bread, or an entire tuna noodle casserole with spaghetti on the side. Eat, people, EAT. Drinking (even a little) on an empty stomach will make you tipsy in a New York minute and might even make you feel like you were roofied the next morning (you werent roofied, I promise you just forgot to eat). Between each festive beverage, enjoy a refreshing glass of ice water. Because hangovers are mainly the result of dehydration, water is your friend. Never mix, never worry. If youve been sipping white wine all evening, dont switch to a chocolate martini at 9 p.m. To avoid regrets the next day, dance with the one that brought ya all night. If you find yourself ringing in 2015 with a vengeance and forget to follow any of my experienced advice, then before you stumble into bed, take 500 milligrams of vitamin B complex with a BIG glass of water and two Advil. Its my personal home remedy that heads a hangover off at the pass or at least it did before I turned 40. It actually doesnt really work as well anymore. Sorry. And, finally, whatever you do: Dont drink and drive, not even a short distance, under any circumstances. There are lots of serious reasons not to, but heres some extra motivation: Theres usually plenty of checkpoints all over Southwest Florida on New Years Eve, and if youve only had a couple glasses of wine, youre probably not going to pass a breathalyzer test, and if you refuse to take the test, you spend the night in the pokey anyway. So, plan ahead. Seriously. Also, local media outlets post online photo galleries of DUI mug shots and nobody looks festive in orange jail garb under bad fluorescent lighting. Please stay safe and have a divalicious New Years Eve! And if youre in your 20s, please save this column for New Years Eve 2031. Trust me, youll need it. Cheers! Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week m t I stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 Personal finance new years resolutionsEvery persons financial situation is unique. There are distinct positives and negatives to everyones financial position. Everyone has different challenges to face, behaviors, attitudes, disciplines etc. Most advisers suggest that individuals should list their resolutions for the coming year. Not all of those will be accomplished, but it will hard to accomplish any changes unless you have at least identified goals and listed them as a visual reminders. Possibly before making the 2015 list of resolutions, it would be useful to reflect on 2014. Reflect on how successfully you accomplished last years resolutions and, if successful in any regard, congratulate yourself. You might also reflect on any changed financial behaviors in 2014 even if they were not on last years list of financial commitments. It might well be that during last year, you observed better financial behavior in others and adopted it, that you read about better behavior and implemented it, that you were chastised about poor financial behavior and you amended your ways. Looking back is a good idea because success has a way of building on itself. It encourages and affirms your ability to implement positive change. Otherwise, creating another new years list of financial goals might be dreaded. It might seem overwhelmingly negative just another chance for failure, just another chance to see all your prior years shortcomings revisited. Many financial new year resolutions are not hugely difficult to understand: eg. save money in your retirement plan; pay off credit card debt; dont charge on your credit card more than you can pay off in full on a monthly basis; curb gift giving and spending; list all of your monthly expenses and scrutinize ways to save or reduce expenditures; dont chase investments or hot deals; etc. These things are easily understood, the challenge is the not so simple to implement and effect consistent improved behavior. There are many ways to rise above the often overwhelming aspects of change in financial behaviors. First, make your new years solutions for each of 12 months to be implemented. For instance, you might decide that January will be dedicated to figuring a monthly budget and February might be dedicated to matching your actual expenditures to your estimated monthly budget. March might be dedicated to funding your retirement plan and, if applicable, getting a health savings account. Insertion of expenses that will well serve your prospective financial health egg expenditures to be healthy, eat well and exercise. April might be dedicated to selecting three to four expenses that you can curb to lower levels or you can negotiate with the provider of a service to lower dollar amounts (e.g., cell phone; insurances; cleaning; auto care; etc.) May might be focused on paying off of credit card debt on a monthly basis. And so forth for the following months. Certainly by October, you would want to make a reassessment of your gift purchasing in November and December. How you compose your list is unique to you. Be not discouraged if all 12 goals are not achieved. If you are young, accomplishing one major goal in each of your next 10 years will put you on a path that will lead to a healthier financial life. For parents who want to impact their childs future financial life, you might jointly figure with your child (elementary, middle, high school, college or post college) what might be a good financial goal of theirs to which you can contribute or help provided they are all-in themselves. Remember, the challenge is to not create financial resolutions; the challenge is to implement them. You need to consider your own behavior in figuring the best way to implement change. It might be other than one change per month. It might be that you enlist a person who will hold you accountable for your change. It might be that you establish rewards for yourself with each change successfully implemented. It might be that you team with a person who has the same goal(s). This is comparable to advice given to those who have a large amount of weight to lose. It is best that the sedentary person suddenly not commit to every day in the gym training for a marathon; it is not best accomplished by those with unrestrained eating habits to move to a very restrictive caloric intake.

Those are causes. The consequences, in turn, can be either good or bad internationally, where destabilization of governments can work to the benefit or the detriment of Americans and westerners. But in the United States and especially in Florida, which has just surpassed New York to become the nations third most populous state they are almost universally considered positive, both by individuals and by companies whose business relies on transportation. Business owners with small or large fleets in the Sunshine State say they are driving more if they need to, using savings at the pumps to refurbish or increase their stock, and spending the extra money they dont pour into the fuel industry on better equipment or holiday shopping or other economy-boosting needs. Moving season is May through September, and during the season the gas prices were catastrophic, so that equals our rates going up, explains Jameson Olsen, a spokeswoman for All My Sons Moving & Storage in West Palm Beach. But now were out of season and the fuel prices have dropped, so we can give better rates. And not only better rates, but faster service, since the company can put more trucks on the road and people who buy the less-expensive plan that offers pick-up on an exact date and delivery out-of-state within 45 days can expect their deliveries a lot more quickly than that. Rather than going to California once or twice a month, we can go three or four times, for example, Ms. Olsen adds. And the standard industry rate calculated for gas costs on a move is 22 percent, but we can drop that to 10 percent. Isnt that crazy? Thats the power of fuel prices. Result to consumer? On a $10,000 move, instead of paying about $2,200 for fuel, the consumer might only pay $1,000 for fuel. Which might mean more money in that consumers pocket for holiday spending, for example. And people were spending like crazy just the day before Christmas, as Ms. Olsen might say which meant other people were working to help them spend. In Lee County, Phil Christie, co-owner with his wife Karen Christie, and his daughter, Morgan Christie, of the specialty shop Maverick Meats, was driving back from Punta Gorda, where hed just delivered $300 of meat to the crew at Roys Trailers. Mr. Christie had purchased a trailer to go with his four vehicles, including an expensive and gas-guzzling 15-foot refrigerated truck, and the boys at Roys were in turn buying rib-eye steaks, porterhouse steaks, sirloin steaks, brisket burgers and veal chops (all raised in the region without antibiotics or other drugs). For Mr. Christie, fuel at these prices is saving him roughly $7,000 a year, he figures which is more than 20 percent of the cost of a new $30,000 piece of equipment he now intends to buy for his shop. I dont know whether its the season or the economy or that people have more money, but sales for us are up people have the extra dollars in their pockets when gas is so much cheaper. Meanwhile at Charlotte County Flowers, Roxanne Clappe almost dropped the phone in her haste to get to the next delivery job when a reporter asked her if the drop in fuel prices was affecting business. This is such a good thing we are extremely busy, she said. Ive been delivering flowers all over the area all day, and I would say the lower gas prices make a huge difference. The same was true in Naples, where Barry Ardrey, founder and co-ower with his wife, Sharon Ardrey, of Naples Errand Runners, had just seized the opportunity presented by fuel savings to buy a newer better car capable of averaging about 35 miles per gallon in busy, in-season traffic from Naples north to Fort Myers where the company operates. Its a beautiful thing, he noted. I went out and bought this 2013 Toyota hybrid, and were doing errands and deliveries all over the place, but I do see one downside to this drop in fuel prices: competition. Now there are drivers all over the roads doing what we do. And what he does is even a little cheaper in some regional markets than others, he adds. In Fort Myers, for example, fuel prices are slightly lower than they are in Naples. And they continue to drop. AAA (the American Automobile Association) released a report on Dec. 21 that indicated gasoline prices had dropped below $2 a gallon in some stations in Georgia and Tennessee. Happily for companies that rely on driving, Prices in Florida are not far behind. The lowest prices in Florida are in the Jacksonville area at $2.10 a gallon. If prices keep falling at about 2 cents a day, Florida motorists could begin finding gasoline at below $2 a gallon by the end of the week. AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins attributed the drop to increased oil production and low demand, and thats keeping downward pressure on the price of gasoline. In other words, the market is determining the cost not OPEC, as it has tried to do in recent years, or Rockefellers Standard Oil Company, as it did in the socalled good old days. By comparison, fuel prices at pumps across western Europe are more than two times prices at American pumps now, coming at out at more than $6 a gallon, at best, according to a report last week from globalpetrolprices.com. American business owners, meanwhile, are not myopic about the effects of diving fuel costs. When I look at it from the world view, I figure the biggest hit is going to be on Russia (where prices are about 20 percent less than they are at American pumps) since oil is their biggest product, observed Mr. Christie, commenting as he drove southward through a region of American opulence. The poor over there are just going to get poorer. And as for the poor over here? Jameson Olsen at All My Sons Moving & Storage offered this thought: When gas prices drop, it allows us to do more charitable work. Were the Palm Beach sponsor of Toys for Tots, and were doing stuff all the time. So lower fuel prices work in our favor because we love doing charity. And it makes it a little easier to do that.

Mor e Encore877.432.9664 EncoreBank.com Strong community bank with local decision making Innovative commercial and residential lending Dedicated to building strong partnerships between our clients, their businesses and our communityReport shows robust workers compensation market in Florida SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe workers compensation market in the Sunshine State is competitive, well capitalized and robust, with lower amounts of loss. Thats the finding of the 2014 Workers Compensation Annual Report released to the state legislature by the Office of Insurance Regulation. The report notes that six of the markets 10 largest writers are now based in Florida, up from four the year before, writing 28 percent of premiums. The private market writes more than 95 percent of workers compensation in the state, making Florida one of the most competitive markets of the largest states in the country and one of only two that do not rely largely on statecreated residual market entities. The analysis found that the market is still buoyed by reforms passed by the 2003 Florida Legislature and this years 5.2 percent overall reduction of workers compensation rates (effective in January 2015), the first rate reduction in four years. A longsought revision in the states Hospital Reimbursement Manual updated the reimbursement schedules for hospital inpatient and outpatient services, resulting in a 0.8 percent rate decrease. Underwriting performance, an important measure of an insurance market, is strong and getting even stronger. Floridas loss ratios (the amount of direct loss relative to direct earned premium) are second only to Texas among the big states. The report also shows positive movement since last year among different classes of workers in loss costs (the amount of the rate used to pay actual claim expenses). While costs for physicians services and supplies here are below the national average, the costs for drugs, hospital inpatient, hospital outpatient and ambulatory surgical center services continue to be higher in Florida than the national average. The report states that substantial rate reductions would occur if those costs were brought in line with other states. Likewise, further reform on drug repackaging by physicians would help lower costs. The 2003 legislative changes resulted in a 64.7 percent reduction in rates by 2010, with Florida going from having the highest rates in the country in 2000 to 40th highest in 2010. Rate increases over the past several years caused the state to slip to 29th highest and this year to 28th highest. The report points out concerns that the states significant gains in lowering costs from 2003-10 could be eroded further, noting several pending court cases that have the potential to negatively affect workers compensation rates in the future. The National Council on Compensation Insurance, which files rates on behalf of 254 workers compensation insurers in Florida, made it clear at our public rate hearing in October that these court cases could potentially increase costs, Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty says. Indeed, they could affect the system itself and Floridas ability to retain its economic competitive advantage in this area. The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation has primary responsibility for regulation, compliance and enforcement of statutes related to the business of insurance and the monitoring of industry markets. The office is required by law to annually evaluate competition in the workers compensation market and to investigate and use data in its review of such rate filings.

By 1917, another key predecessor company had a presence in Manhattan and was importing essential oils. A 1958 merger gave me my current name and made me a major supplier in the flavor and fragrance industry.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Terms to KnowUnderstanding the following terms can help you be a better investor: Book value: A companys assets, minus liabilities and intangible assets, which can be calculated via the companys balance sheet. It represents what would be left over in assets if the company went out of business. Bull (and bear) market: When the overall market gains (or loses) value over an extended period of time. Theres no official definition, but many feel a gain (or drop) of at least 10 percent is needed to qualify. (A smaller drop is often called a correction.) Capital appreciation: One of the two components of total return (along with dividend yield), capital appreciation reflects how much the underlying value of a security has increased. If you bought a stock at $20 per share and it has risen to $23, youve got 15 percent appreciation on your investment. Capital gain/loss: The difference between the price at which an asset is sold and its original purchase price (or basis). Buy a stock for $10 and sell it for $15, and youve got a capital gain of $5, less trading costs. Liquidity: A measure of how quickly an asset can be sold at a fair price and converted to cash, such as mutual funds and most major stocks. Illiquid assets include stocks with low trading volume, real estate and antiques. Market timing: An investment strategy based on predicting short-term price changes in securities, which is virtually impossible to do. Standard & Poors 500 Index: An index of 500 of Americas biggest publicly traded companies. The S&P 500 is considered a good measurement of the overall U.S. stock market, and indeed, it represents about 80 percent of the market. Treasury bill (T-bill): A short-term debt obligation issued by the U.S. government, with a maturity of one year or less. Its sold at a discount, so that you collect no coupon payments but receive the full value at maturity. Learn more terms at investopedia.com and investorwords. com. Costly AdviceMy dumbest investment move was listening to a broker from a large brokerage. I figured he had to be very savvy to work there. I told him, back around 1994, to buy shares of America Online, Dell, Microsoft and Johnson & Johnson, among other stocks.Instead, he pushed his presumably better ideas and soon I was invested in them. Then, just before some of them went up, he said that his brokerage was recommending real estate investment trusts (REITs) now. I was moved into some of them, and they dropped in value. For all this, I was paying him more than $6,000 per year. I could have had millions by investing on my own. F.I., Dover, OklahomaThe Fool Responds: Some financial advisers have conflicts of interest, getting compensated by having you make certain investments. And a brokerage will profit more if you trade frequently, as it charges trading commissions. You might already be a savvier stock picker than your adviser, or you can become one by reading and learning. Youll cost yourself less, too, investing on your own. Remember, some brokers are mostly salespeople. Energize Your PortfolioIf youre looking for a seemingly undervalued stock with a fat dividend, check out Enerplus (NYSE: ERF). Its a North American oil, gas and natural gas liquids exploration and production company, which, not surprisingly, has been whacked by falling oil prices that can lower its topand bottom-line results. Still, theres a lot of growth potential in Enerplus, even with oil prices at multiyear lows. Enerplus has employed hedging techniques to shield some of its production, locking in higher-than-prevailing prices. Meanwhile, Enerplus juiciest assets are sitting in the oil-rich Williston Basin, which spans North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Saskatchewan. Whether its selling at the wellhead, in Cushing, Oklahoma, or shipping by rail to Louisiana to take advantage of the Brent-West Texas Intermediate spread, Enerplus has a number of options available to get the best possible price for its assets. Enerplus has also been a leader in downspacing putting more than one well in a space where, traditionally, only one well would operate. This method could give Enerplus a way to quickly boost its yield and profits. Enerplus offers investors a monthly dividend with an annual dividend yield recently near 10 percent. Its not without risk, especially if oil prices keep falling, but with a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 11, well below its five-year average, Enerplus is inviting. I began as a grocery store launched in C incinnati in 1 883 with $372. In 1901, I was the first grocery store to feature a bakery.

I rake in more than $100 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: The Kroger Co.) A Different DividendQWhats a stock dividend? G.W., Manchester, New HampshireAYoure probably familiar with traditional dividends, which involve companies with excess cash paying out some of it to shareholders in the form of cash dividends every quarter (and sometimes every month). But not all dividends are paid in cash. A company might opt to reward shareholders with additional shares of stock, instead. That can seem more appealing for us investors, but by increasing its share count, the company is diluting the value of existing shares. (Imagine a pizza, where the more slices there are, the smaller each one is.) The idea can appeal to the companys management, though, as it gets to reward shareholders without sacrificing any cash. It awards shareholders a share or a fraction of a share for each share owned, and in many ways is like a stock split. ***QHow many shareholders do companies usually have? P.Y., Memphis, TennesseeAIt can vary widely. Privately held companies might have just a few, but publicly traded ones typically have many thousands. Hormel, for example, cites about 13,800 shareholders of record, while Kroger has 30,449. Keep in mind that the number of shareholders changes all the time as shares are bought and sold, and that the numbers are rarely exact. Many shares are held in street name, too, meaning that their brokerage holds their shares for them, and the company may not know how many individuals make up that block of brokerage shares or who they are. IBM, for example, has stated that, At year-end 2012, there were 491,541 registered owners of IBM stock. Another 1,600,000 stockholders own IBM stock through brokerage firms, banks, credit unions and other financial institutions. Got a question for the Fool?

Must have an appointment.1-800-591-DERM | www.RiverchaseDermatology.com SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Southwest Florida low on the list for romance and fun On a recent night in downtown Fort Myers, a man leaning against a lamppost said to me, Youre not from around here, are you? I smiled and kept walking, tossing back over my shoulder. Actually, I am. Which is true; my Floridian roots run deep. But still, his comment delighted me. Most of us from down here like to pretend were not. Im always struck by how people born and raised in other parts of the country describe Southwest Florida. They use words like paradise and gorgeous, and they ask enviously what it was like to grow up here. Those of us from this part of Florida, though, usually just shake our heads. But why? Whats so bad about it? We have beaches, pleasant weather all year round, fine dining, good shopping. Whats missing? Romance, for starters. Anyone who has been single in Southwest Florida will tell you that finding someone to love in this area can be tough. When I tell people in other cities about our dating scene, they always roll their eyes and ask, How hard can it be? Now, finally, I have statistical proof that the dating life in this area is a struggle. The online personal finance site Wallet Hub just released its findings for the best and worst cities to be single in the United States. Using data from the Census Bureau and other agencies, Wallet Hub crunched numbers for the 150 most populated U.S. cities. To decide each places Romance & Fun ranking, researchers weighed factors such as the percentage of single people, the number of restaurants per capita, nightlife options, crime rate and online dating opportunities. So howd we do in Southwest Florida? Technically, we didnt make the most populated cities list no Fort Myers, no Naples. But there, sitting down at the bottom, ranked 145 out of 150: Cape Coral, only slightly more fun and romantic than Brownsville, Texas, and Peoria, Ariz. I laughed when I first saw this. Its one thing to claim that dating is hard here; its another to see actual evidence. Still, I like to think were not completely doomed, the singles who call this corner of paradise home. Statistics are hard to stare down, but just because somethings a challenge doesnt make it impossible. In 2015, this bright New Year already upon us, I think we should all shoot for a touch more faith (no matter what the data says). Id encourage the singles among us to get out more, to try new things, to circulate in a different dating pool. People write me frequently, men and women with a lot of to offer who havent found the right person, and I always want to put them together, to say, Look. Theyre out there. Keep searching. Its true that we might not be as romantic or fun as, say, Boise, Idaho, (No. 22), or Lincoln, Neb., (No. 68), but at least we have a pretty coast and warm days even in January. I like to think we also have a relentless optimism, and that more than anything will see us through.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 COURTESY PHOTOS / (C) JOAN MARCUS, 2014The Book of Mormon National Tour Company Dene Benton and Cody Jamison Strand in The Book of Mormon. Original Score, as well as the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Musical to just mention a few. The Book of Mormon plays both the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers (Jan 6-11) and ArtisNaples in Naples (Jan. 13-18). I dont think its ever been done before (having the same show play consecutively at the two venues), says Mann Hall General Manager Scott Saxon. Its something weve talked about and sort of felt this was a good opportunity to try it. Its a show thats really popular; lets play a week at both places. We were both confident it would be successful. And they were right: Seats are sold out at ArtisNaples, but some remain available at the Mann Hall. Limited $25 cashonly seats will be available by lottery at both venues on each day of performance.Specialists in shockWritten by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the animated TV show South Park, and Robert Lopez, cocomposer and co-lyricist of Broadways Avenue Q, The Book of Mormon tells the story of two 19-year-old missionaries sent to Uganda to convert the people there to Mormonism. It deals with the journey that two Mormons take, after they graduate from high school and go off and do their missionary work, says actor James Vincent Meredith, who plays Mafala, a Ugandan. Its their journey to Uganda, and the journey they take as far as learning about their religion and each other, and about friendship. Both Mr. Stone and Mr. Parker have made a career out of pushing boundaries, including the boundaries of good taste. Never having met a line they wont cross, theyre specialists in shock. This show satirizes not only Mormonism, but all organized religion, and includes subjects such as female genital mutilation and men having sex with babies in the mistaken belief that doing so will cure them of AIDS. Perhaps the most controversial song in The Book of Mormon is Hasa Diga Eebowai, a cheery, bouncy littlte number that TVs Minutes called rude, crude, lewd and blasphemous. The lyrics curse God in very explicit language (language we cannot print and dont want to even allude to in Florida Weekly). First, I thought, if Im lucky enough to get this role, I dont know if my parents can come see this, says Mr. Meredith, who sings Hasa Diga Eebowai and teaches it to the Mormon boys. Theyre religious. But also just saying what I say in that song; I wasnt sure if they could cotton to it. I read (the script) two or three times. I kept thinking, How is this being produced? How are they allowed to do it? It goes after everyone. The misnomer with the show is that it only makes fun of Mormonism. But they make fun of everyone. Thats what got me excited about auditioning. But still, there was that big number he has to sing every night, cursing God from the stage. The thing that kind of allowed me to make my peace with it is that the struggles that these people are going through are real, Mr. Meredith explains. An epidemic, so many diseases going around, that are taking brothers, sisters, mothers, daughters, fathers, uncles. There is such frustration by the people its a very sensible response: What the bleep, God? Why is this happening to me? Why is this allowed to happen? Why do I have this family member this day and two weeks later theyre gone? I think when you have no answers, are frustrated and theres nothing you can do about it, about sickness, oppression from the warlord I can understand why this song would spring up from such frustration. Reaction to the number is usually positive, although once in a while, people walk out. I understand that, the actor says. Its a bit of a surprise. It takes some people aback. But the lions share of the audience is definitely with us. As for his religious parents, they came to see the show in Chicago. (Mr. Meredith grew up in Evanston, a suburb just north of the city, and acts in Chicagos Steppenwolf Theatre Company. He also appeared on Broadway in Superior Donuts, which originated at Steppenwolf. The Book of Mormon is his first musical.) They are definitely religious and I had concerns, he says about having his parents in the audience. I was probably the most nervous for that show. Im a grown man with a wife and kid of my own, but you always want your parents to be happy. I wasnt sure how theyd take it. Believe it or not, they enjoyed it.An equal-opportunity offenderCody Jamison Strand, who plays Elder Cunningham, one of the two lead missionaries, had a similar situation. He comes from a line of ministers: Not only is his father an Assemblies of God minister in South Dakota, but his grandfather is also one. As for Mr. Strand himself? I didnt hear the calling, he says simply. He did hear the call to become an actor, however. Ironically, Elder Cunningham is the first role he played on Broadway. After that, the 25-year-old actor joined the Chicago cast and is now touring with them. His father, he says, has seen the show about 14 times and really likes it, though, He always says they could use the f-word about half the amount of time (that they do.) In his bio, Mr. Strand dedicates his performance to his grandparents, including his pastor grandfather Bob. I come from a long line of pastors, and here I am, singing hasa diga eebowai every night. The song, he says, is vital to the show. Its important dramateurgically the moment it happens in the show, he says. If it didnt, there would be no story. If all of Uganda accepted our message from the beginning, our show would be very short. They needed a place to go. Every issue that is talked about in the song is really happening. One of his favorite things to do is go online and read the one-star negative reviews on Yelp. I find it hilarious, he says. They harp on that song and say, Its not funny to make fun of that stuff. Were not making fun of it. Were pointing it out. I think you can say more through a satire than you can being serious. (Mormonism) is the lens that they use to talk about all organized religion. (The writers are) the masters of satire. The musical, he says, touches on everything and leaves no stone unturned. Thats what people like about it: Its an equal opportunity offender.Predicting local reactionSo how will conservative Southwest Florida audiences respond to the show? Its difficult to predict. Mr. Saxon saw The Book of Mormon on Broadway and found it incredibly funny, he says. Its hysterical. Its smart and very, very funny. What gets lost sometimes in the fact that its so funny is that its a big, oldfashioned musical, with big production numbers, and big, good songs. Its a great Broadway musical. I think that gets lost sometimes when people talk about the controversial things. It deserved the Tony it won (for Best Musical). Not only did the show make him laugh, but those around him were also laughing hysterically as well, he says. And though its been a couple of years, he can still hum some of the tunes. The show has a very South Park sensibility to it, he adds. They skewer everybody. But, he adds, you dont have to be a South Park fan to find it funny. I think the vast majority of the people will love it, will be talking about it, raving about it, 99.9 percent. Southwest Florida appreciates a great show, and this is what it is: a great show.

Non-resident club memberships with all amenities now available! www.JoinEagleCreek.com For a Personal T our please call Laura Pelletier 239.417.6111GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUBTheatreZones 10th anniversary season opens with Mack & Mabel, the first show ever produced by the company in 2005. Opening night 2015 is Thursday, Jan. 8, and the show runs through Jan. 18 in the G&L Theatre at Community School of Naples. With book by Michael Steward and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman, Mack & Mabel is about the tumultuous romantic relationship between Hollywood director Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand, who became one of Mr. Sennetts biggest stars. In a series of flashbacks, he relates the glory days of Keystone Studios from 1911, when he discovered Ms. Normand and cast her in dozens of his early two-reelers, through his creation of Sennetts Bathing Beauties and the Keystone Cops to Mabels death from tuberculosis in 1930. The original 1974 Broadway production starring Robert Preston and Bernadette Peters received eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, but did not win any. Although the production closed after only eight weeks, the songs were praised and subsequent productions, especially in Berlin, have had success. Patrick Sullivan makes his TheatreZone debut as Mr. Sennett. He has appeared on Broadway in Beauty & the Beast (Gaston), Titanic (Barrett and Farrell) and the revival of 2nd Street (Julian Marsh). Songstress Carolann Sanita, most recently seen in TheatreZones production of Godspell and last years High Society, plays Mabel. Andrea Wright and Gerrit VanderMeer play the actress Lottie and director William Desmond Taylor, who features Mabel in his dramatic rols and is a romantic foil toward Mr. Sennett. The ensemble cast includes Alex Jorth, Joseph Strickland, Jarret Ditch, Cristopher Lewis, Kayley Stevens, Juliet Jewett, Dana Cohen and Whitney Winfield. Up next at TheatreZone will be Stephen Sondheims musical thriller Sweeney Todd, playing Feb. 5-15. The season continues with Brooklyn: The Musical (March 5-15) and Neil Simons Theyre Playing Our Song (April 30-May 10.

In addition to Ms. Laughlin and Mr. Kenneally, the local cast includes Andrew Ciliberto as Beckys husband, Joe; Sean OShea as the Fosters son, Chris; Alex Costello as Beckys coworker Steve; Valentina Cioci as Walters daughter, Kenni; and Kathleen Barney as Ginger, a neighbor of Walters.

SAVE 10%Register online with code FLWEEK10*some restrictions apply ARTS COMMENTARYIt was a good year for good readsThat motto you see plastered on T-shirts, bookmarks and posters is ohso-true: So many books, so little time! Heres a look at some intriguing books I enjoyed in 2014 and that you might find intriguing enough to add to your reading list for the New Year. Grand Forks: A History of American Dining in 128 Reviews by Marilyn Hagerty ($14.99, HarperCollins) was actually published in 2013, but I discovered it this year. And Im so glad I did. The author has been writing for the Grand Forks Herald in North Dakota since 1957. Among other things, she writes Eatbeat, a column for the food page every Wednesday. But how would she go about writing food reviews? As Ms. Hagerty herself admits: We dont have that many restaurants in our city. So I decided it would work if I went to every restaurant in town. That would mean places such as Taco Johns, McDonalds and the truck stops. To me, those places are interesting. And plenty of people eat in them. She explains that she writes Eatbeat as a reporter, not as a critic. My goal with the Eatbeat is to tell the readers of Grand Forks Herald what is available in restaurants and how much it costs. How clean it is, and how the service is. And yes, the condition of the restroom, because it sends a message. In her book, a collection of columns written in her folksy, idiosyncratic style, she writes about buffet restaurants, Olive Garden and the towns first Taco Bell, among other places. Reading them might give you the urge to go out for some comfort food at the closest mom-andpop restaurant. (And I love the fact her citys named Grand Forks! Could there be any more appropriate name for a food writers stomping grounds?) Another title Ive recommended to friends (and also gave as Christmas gifts, is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. ($24.95, Knopf). It has appeared on some end-of-year best-of lists, and justifiably so. It was also a New York Times Bestseller and a 2014 National Book Award Finalist. This lyrically written novel set in the near future examines a world when much of the population has died of a highly contagious virus. Its survivors include a traveling orchestra whose members also perform Shakespeare. Station Eleven is a celebration of life and the arts, a fervent assertion that even in the very worst of times, the arts can survive and help us survive, too. Over the holidays, I devoured Michael Fabers latest novel, The Book of Strange New Things ($28, Hogarth). This 500-page story is about a British pastor, Peter, who travels to a planet galaxies away to minister to its native population, who call his Bible the book of strange new things. Hes transported there by a mysterious corporation that has a colony on the planet and whose intentions are unclear. Peter has to leave his wife, Bea, behind in a world that grows increasingly apocalyptic. Despite the setting, I wouldnt consider this book stereotypically science-fiction: There are no aliens using humans as host bodies, no military troops blowing things up, no interplanetary wars. Mr. Fabers main characters are fully realized people with rich internal lives and thoughts. They ponder their mortality, the purpose of their existence, their relationships. There are layers upon layers in this novel. Mr. Faber pays tribute to the s and 0s Marvel Comics writers, pencilers and inkers by basing some of his characters names on theirs. And while he was writing it, Mr. Fabers wife of almost 30 years, Eva, was diagnosed with cancer. (She died in July 2014.) That adds a poignancy to the books couple who are separated by galaxies and growing more distant, and to their musings on mortality. (The Book of Strange New Things also contains one of the best eulogies Ive ever read or heard.) As Mr. Faber said in an interview with The Independent in November: When your partner is dying of a disease that you dont have and you know that you are going to outlive her, they are on a different planet. Theyve already gone somewhere where you cant follow. The book ended up embodying that, even though it wasnt planned. The books cleverly designed black cloth cover with gold lettering on the spine and golden gilt-edged pages looks similar to many King James Bibles. The paper cover shows two hands set against a backdrop of outer space and twinkling stars. Have they just separated, or are they reaching out to each other? (They also call to mind, somewhat, the almosttouching hands in Michelangelos The Creation of Adam.) Smoke Gets In Your eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty ($24.95, W.W. Norton) is admittedly not for everyone. The author, a licensed mortician, writes about her first time working at a crematory in California while in her 20s, and her unusual, sometimes touching, sometimes funny experiences. One reviewer called the book alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, fascinating and freaky, vivid and morbid. In this culture, which seems to go to great lengths to avoid any discussion or acknowledgement of death, Mr. Doughty is brave enough to talk about the subject with openness and humor. Florence Gordon by Brian Morton ($25, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) was a pleasant surprise. Mr. Mortons titular character, Florence Gordon, is a 75-year-old writer and icon of the Second Wave Womens Movement. She lives in New York City and is tough, smart and brutally honest. She even walks out on her own surprise birthday party because shed rather be home, writing. Heres how the novel opens: Florence Gordon was trying to write a memoir, but she had two strikes against her: She was old and she was an intellectual. And who on earth, she sometimes wondered, would want to read a book about an old intellectual? Maybe it was three strikes, because not only was she an intellectual, she was a feminist. Which meant that if she ever managed to finish this book, reviewers would inevitably dismiss it as strident and shrill. And in the second chapter: She wasnt a woman who wanted to recapture her youth. In part this was because she found the life she was living now so interesting. Pretty surprising prose from a male writer, who continued to surprise me, page after page. I really liked his portrait of this tough, difficult, independent woman. Im making my way through Anne Lamotts latest collection of essays: Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace ($22.95, Riverhead Books). Ive been reading Ms. Lamott ever since her debut novel, Hard Laughter, was published in the early s. Revealing, poignant, funny and sometimes rueful, her essays are a fresh, unique take on spiritual matters. She writes about the difficulty of finding a romantic partner at age 60 and her disasterous foray onto Match.com. She writes about how difficult it is to forgive: In fact, not forgiving is like drinking rat poison and then waiting for the rat to die. Elsewhere, she calls a lack of forgiveness leprosy of the insides and warns that, if left untreated, it can take out tissue, equilibrium, soul, sense of self. And her take on resentment: Resentments make even the best of us feel superior. Ive always found a kind of comfort in them, as if they were wire monkey moms, a place to hold on that is better than nothing. Ms. Lamott sees the spiritual in everyday life and talks about everyday life in spiritual terms. i M o j T B nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A recurring unresolved issue might need to be revisited before you can move forward. Consider asking someone familiar with the situation to act as an impartial counselor. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Ignore pressure to make a decision. Keeping your options open is still the wisest course, at least until youre sure youve learned all you need to know about the matter at hand. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) That lower-than-acceptable performance youre getting from others in your group might be the result of miscommunication. If so, correct it before serious problems arise later on. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unexpected situation could call for a change of plans. If so, you might feel that this is unfair. But its best to make the needed adjustments now. Therell be time later for rescheduling. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The new year brings opportunities you might want to look into. Some might be more interesting than others. But take time to look at all of them before you make any decisions. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its a good idea to be careful about expenses until youve worked out that pesky financial problem. You might find it advisable to get some solid advice on how to proceed. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Romance looms large over the Leonine aspect. Single Lions looking for love should find Cupid very cooperative. Paired Cats can expect a renewed closeness in their relationships. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Making contact with a former colleague might not be high on your list of priorities. But it could pay off personally as well as professionally. Avoid bringing up any negatives about the past. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A personal relationship could face added stress because of a situation involving someone close to both of you. Be supportive and, above all, try to avoid playing the blame game. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might well find some lingering uncertainties about a decision. If so, take that as a warning that you might not be ready to make that move yet. More study would be in order. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Music is a dominant theme for Sagittarians right now, and it should remind you to make a greater effort to restore some much-needed harmony in that very special relationship. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre capable of great loyalty to those around you, which is one reason you can count on devotion from friends and family. PUZZLES Presents...

FILM CAPSULESThe Gambler (Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, John Goodman) A literature professor (Mr. Wahlberg) gets into serious gambling debt and doesnt seem to care if he can find a way out. Wahlberg gives an unexpectedly layered performance in this taut drama that has a few surprises up its sleeve. Rated R.Top Five 1/2(Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union) A comedian (Mr. Rock) spends time with a reporter (Ms. Dawson) to promote his latest film as his marriage to a reality TV star (Ms. Union) looms. The story lacks flow, even feeling like a stand up comedy routine at times. But its also funny and has heart (literally Kevin Hart has a cameo). Rated R. Life Partners (Leighton Meester, Gillian Jacobs, Adam Brody) Best friends Sasha (Ms. Meester) and Paige (Ms. Jacobs) fail to connect after Paige starts dating Tim (Mr. Brody). The dramedy has unexpected depth along with its humor, and as a result this is an enjoyable watch. Rated R.The Theory of Everything 1/2(Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Emily Watson) Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking (Mr. Redwayne) meets and marries Jane (Ms. Jones) while theyre students at Cambridge. The catch is he has motor neuron disease, which doesnt affect his brain but does deprive him of muscle control, leaving him a prisoner in his own body. A genuinely heartwarming story and phenomenal performance from Mr. Redmayne make this a surefire Oscar contender. Rated PG-13.Rosewater 1/2(Gael Garcia Bernal, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Claire Foy) In Iran, journalist Maziar Bahari (Mr. Bernal) is arrested and tortured for 118 days after hes accused of being a spy. Writer/director Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) gets a solid performance from Mr. Bernal, but the film doesnt have an engaging visual style and therefore is dull at times. Unrated: Would be an R for language, not graphic torture.Interstellar 1/2(Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine) With humans no longer able to survive on earth, a father of two (Mr. McConaughey) pilots a spacecraft into a wormhole in the hope of finding a new place for mankind to live. There are a few unnecessary elements, but overall this is a substantial, impressive work from Christopher Nolan (the Dark Knight trilogy, Inception). Rated PG-13.Big Hero 6 (Voices of T.J. Miller, James Cromwell, Ryan Potter) Robotic engineering prodigy Hiro (Mr. Potter) needs the help of friends with superpowers to track down the villain who stole his creation. The animation is bright and crisp in 3D, the action rollicks and theres a good amount of humor throughout. Disney Animation (Frozen) does it again. Rated PG.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 C15 LATEST FILMSUnbrokenIs it worth $10? YesIndomitable human spirit is on full display in Unbroken. I know its clich to describe a movie as inspiring, but if this one doesnt convince you of the power of sheer determination and to live life to the fullest, nothing will. Based on the book by Laura Hillenbrand (Seabiscuit), Unbroken tells the true story of Louis Zamperini, a record-setting high school track star turned Olympian turned World War II hero. Its not the accolades themselves that are the most impressive, however, its the way they were achieved that will turn heads and open hearts. As a child, Louis is a scamp. But his brother Pete (Alex Russell) gets him into track and field, and soon Louis (Jack OConnell) sets a national high school record and is competing in the Berlin Olympics. When the war comes, he joins the Air Force and serves as a bombardier in the Pacific, which is where his plane crashes due to engine failure. Stranded on a lifeboat with fellow soldiers Phil (Domhnall Gleeson) and Mac (Finn Wittrock), they battle sharks, weather and enemy ships before being captured and taken to a Japanese POW camp. Sometimes when a situation goes from bad to worse it can almost feel comical, but theres none of that here. This is a straight drama with minimal comic relief. Louis, who becomes the target of torment for a Japanese officer nicknamed the Bird (Miyavi), seems to get stronger with every adversity. As we see him continually get knocked down and back up again, even the hardest of hearts will have trouble not being moved by his courage. Consider: At any point after hes stranded on the lifeboat, Louis couldve freaked out, given up and wanted to die already, and it wouldve been hard to blame him. But its always Louis who keeps his head, doesnt let others get too far down and is willing to absorb the brunt of the punishment. Hes a born leader.So how did the directorially inexperienced Angelina Jolie accomplish such a stellar piece of filmmaking? She had tremendous passion and vision for the project, of course, but perhaps more importantly, she surrounded herself with some of the top talent in the business. Joel and Ethan Coen (Fargo) and Richard LaGravanese (The Fisher King) wrote the script, the great Roger Deakins (Skyfall) was the cinematographer and Alexandre Desplat (The Kings Speech) created the emotional musical score. When you have proven veterans who know how to do it right, its a tremendous asset, and no doubt Ms. Jolie trusted her collaborators to be on top of their game. And they are. Unbroken isnt perfect a better sense of elapsing time would have assisted overall comprehension and appreciation for Louis peril but it is extremely captivating. Just dont get too carried away with believing everything youre seeing really happened. The credits come with the standard disclaimer that some characters were composited or invented and that a number of incidents (were) fictionalized. Does this matter? I dont think so. Ms. Jolies responsibility is to tell the story as well as she can; sometimes, when reality doesnt mesh well with narrative clarity, filling in blanks becomes necessary.

It doesnt seem to be made by a skilled cabinetmaker. Although it looks like two pieces, the back construction shows that it was made to be one piece a fitted cabinet at the bottom behind the ad and an empty space behind the mirrored door. Few collectors know how it was used. The cabinet is a little over 5 feet high. The ad of Old Judge Cigarettes identifies the probable maker, Goodwin & Co., an American tobacco manufacturer from New York City working before the Civil War. Old Judge was one of its brands. The company merged with others and became part of the American Tobacco Co. Collectors today like their tobacco cards picturing baseball players; one set called Old Judge, issued in 1887-1890, was 1 7/16 by 2 inches. A larger set, called Old Judge Cabinets, issued from 1888 to 1889, was 4 by 6 inches. The mirrored section of the wooden cabinet seems to be missing some sort of shelf or racks, probably pipe racks. The lower part has cubby holes, drawers and partitions that may have held loose tobacco, a mixing bowl, humidor, pipe cleaners and cards. The ad, showing a convict held in the stocks, dates from about 1900. An unusual piece, it sold for $780. Q: I inherited my mothers black Catalin Mah Jong set, which she got in the 1940s. Some of the paint has worn off some of the Jokers and Flowers. What is it worth, and how can I sell it? A: Mah Jong originated in China, and early sets imported into the U.S. had ivory, bone or bamboo tiles. Catalin, a polymer developed in the 1930s, has the look of ivory at a lower price. Sets made in the 1920s and s didnt include jokers. Sets made since 1971 include eight jokers and eight flowers. Collectors want sets that have the full set of tiles, in good condition; The convict is trying to smell the smoke from the dancing girls cigarette in this Old Judge cabinet ad. The wooden tobacco cabinet sold at auction for $780 by Garths Auctioneers in Delaware, Ohio, in Nov. 2014.

The value of your set is reduced a little because of the missing paint. A full set in a box sells for $200-$250. Q: I have a blue-and-white plate with a picture of Paul Revere on it and a border of fruit and flowers. I found it in an old steamer trunk in my grandmothers attic. Im over 80 years old, so I think the plate was made about 1800. The back of the plate reads Ride of Paul Revere Apr. 18, 1775. Staffordshire, England, and its marked RM CO. in a diamond shape. How old is it, and what is it worth? A: This mark was used by Rowland & Marsellus, an importer in business in New York City from 1893 to about 1937. Several factories in Staffordshire, England, made historical blue souvenir plates and other chinaware decorated with American scenes. Historical scenes, important buildings, landmarks, cities and colleges were transfer-printed onto the china. Plates with rolled edges are the most wanted. Rowland & Marsellus used a diamond-shape mark from about 1893 to 1900. Your rolled-edge plate is worth about $55. Q: I recently acquired an old bottle marked J. Hindle & Co. with what looks like a picture of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Indianapolis on it. What is the history of this, and what is it worth? A: J. Hindle & Co. (Ltd.) was formed in 1894 as successor to James Hindle of Hull, England. This isnt the Indianapolis monument, its the Wilberforce Monument, located in Hull. The monument was erected in 1834 to honor William Wilberforce, an English politician who worked to abolish the slave trade. J. Hindle & Co. manufactured aerated and mineral water and other beverages, and was listed as an agent for other manufacturers. Your bottle is worth $15$20 or less. Q: I have an autographed 8-by-10-inch glossy black-and-white photograph of boxer Gene Tunney. Its in perfect condition and is about 75-80 years old. Does it have any value? If so, where should I try to sell it? A: The price an autographed picture will bring depend on the fame of the celebrity, rarity and authentication; autographs of many celebrities and sports stars have been faked. American boxer Gene Tunney (1897-1978) was the world heavyweight champion from 1926 to 1928, when he retired from boxing. Autographed pictures of Tunney are fairly common. Some sell for $20 to $40, while some that are declared real by a recognized authentication service sell for over $100. You can sell it to an autograph dealer or at an auction. Its difficult to sell it online because there are so many fakes. Tip: Keep heirloom fabrics like quilts, tablecloths or christening gowns away from scented candles, cigarette smoke and cooking smells. They all cause damage.

Arnold (Penguin Books, $16)REVIEWED BY EALISH WADDELLIts that time of year when we flip the calendar page and start to think about ways to improve our lives. And yet, the vast majority of us will never follow through on our new years resolutions. Perhaps, argues Caroline Arnold in Small M ove, Big Change, its because were setting our sights too far away. A huge, vague goal like lose weight or exercise more is abstract and overwhelming, making it difficult to know where to begin, much less stick to once the January zeal has written off. Arnold suggests instead a simpler and more effective way of accomplishing big goals: breaking them up into chunks that she calls microresolutions. Its a classic technique, but Ms. Arnolds modern approach calls for a little soul-searching as well. Onesize-fits-all goals often fail to take into account an individuals particular needs and abilities. She advocates committing to tiny goals that are personalized, targeted, specific and realistic essentially, goals so easy to achieve that youd feel silly not doing them. This combines the benefit of immediate results with the high of instant gratification, a mix that can be surprisingly powerful. Ms. Arnold presents herself not as a guru, but as a fellow pilgrim on the self-improvement journey. Writing in a clear, friendly and accessible style, she shares copious examples of reallife situations translated into workable (and nonworkable) microresolutions, alongside supportive quotes from experts both scientific and philosophical. Learning to craft effective goals is both an everyday tool and a lifelong art. A key factor is the identification and breaking of negative or resentful mindsets that are standing in the way of positive change. And thats a skill that can carry through into every aspect of life, no matter what the date on the calendar. 239.431.6341NaplesDesignerDivas.comThe Shoppes at Vanderbilt Suite 1362355 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples Naples Designer DivasNo Appointment Necessary WITH THIS AD Now Buying and Selling All Designer and Trendy ClothingDESIGNERS CHINA BISTRONAPLES CENTRE VILLAGES 6434 Naples Boulevard, Unit 406 Naples, Florida 34109239.631.5633 WE MAKE THE BEST PEKING DUCK!

Marco Island Ink. 110 pages. $25. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the new Marco Island, Michael Coleman has assembled an attractive volume that blends history, colorful personalities, the islands many attractions and a generous assortment of photographs illustrating the natural and manmade beauties of the place named by TripAdvisor as the number one U.S. island travel destination. A foreword by Herbert Rosser Savage, the distinguished architect of many of Marcos private homes and public buildings as well as the Marco Beach Hotel (refashioned as todays Marriott), sets the books buoyant tone and previews some of its key stories. Mr. Colemans own prefatory note provides brief biographical notes on his contributors and offers thanks to many others, including the Marco Island Historical Society, for making the book possible. His overview whets the appetite for the essays to come. Readers will enjoy learning about the native Calusa Indians, the Spanish settlers vanquished by diseases and Marcos early development in the last half of the 18th century. William Thomas (W.T.) Collier, known as the founder of Marco Island, settled there in 1870 with his wife and young children. This Collier (no relation to the Barron Gift Colliers) was a successful entrepreneur. He farmed, opened a hotel, helped start the first school and invented a clam-dredging machine that launched a successful industry. For a short while, the island was named Collier City in his honor. Just as interesting are the vignettes about Tommie Barfield, who successfully lobbied for better roads and schools in the area and worked with Barron Gift Collier, the major landholder, to split off huge Collier County from Lee County. She was a dynamic, forceful woman who received the governors appointment to be the new countys first superintendent of public instruction. Remember that we are talking about a mosquito-infested frontier whose pioneers needed great resolve. The doctors Louis and Mary Olds were among those pioneers. A delicious chapter of the book is Betsy Perdichizzis incorporation of sections from Marys diary and letters into a fascinating narrative of early 20th century Marco life. Marys poetic wonder at the areas natural beauty leaves us wanting more. The big story, of course, is the Mackle Brothers dream of a tropical residential wonderland. This experienced team of developers was smitten with the possibilities of a spectacular island community with affordable residential sections, mostly on canals; hotels and other resort amenities; and spectacular beaches. They aimed not at vacationers, but rather at retirees. The scale of the proposed enterprise demanded extensive infrastructure work. The brothers advertised widely and well, and they received a lot of interest across the nation. Magazines and newspapers ran feature stories about the mecca-in-the-making. Models were built and a five-phase plan developed. People were ready to purchase. And they did. Marco became a celebrity vacation spot, justifying, in 1972, the creation of Marco Island Airways with five daily round trips between Marco and Miami. Condominiums sprung up. Everything was going according to plan until court battles on environmental issues and unanticipated rulings by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers brought the grand vision of Polynesia on the Gulf to its knees. As a chapter called The Curse, the Kidnapping, and the Corps points out, other entrepreneurs had also had their dream projects die, but none fell so hard with so much at stake as the Mackle brothers. The more recent history of Marco Island todays Marco is said to have begun when the locals voted to incorporate as a city. While year-rounders continued to arrive, the resort industry invests more and more in the charming, relaxed, semi-exclusive isle. Mr. Coleman and his associates have provided a rich taste of Marco Island yesterday and today. The generous gallery of photographs includes occasional now and then comparisons that underscore the theme of ongoing change. To purchase a copy, go to marcoislandbook.com or stroll into one of these Marco Island establishments: either branch of Sunshine Booksellers, Marco Island Historical Museum, Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce, Over the Reef, Town Center, Rose Marina gift shop, Barry Howe Photography at Farmers Market and Shells by Emily. The book is also at Marriott, Hilton and Marco Beach Ocean Resort gift shops. Mr. Coleman and his contributors will sign books at the Marco Island Historical Museum from 7-9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 31 exactly 50 years after modern Marco Island opened its doors to the world. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

Trudy F., CincinnatiA: The James Spader-starring NBC drama was not canceled; it merely went on winter hiatus. The addictive series will be back with all-new episodes beginning Super Bowl Sunday, which is Feb. 1. Q: Can you tell me when Vikings will be back? It seems like its been gone forever! Jeremy T., via emailA: You dont have much longer to wait. The History Channels hit historical-fiction drama will return at 10 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19. The new 10-episode third season begins with Ragnar (played by Travis Fimmel) as king, and follows the great responsibility that now rests on the shoulders of the former farmer. With the promise of new land from the English, Ragnar leads his people to an uncertain fate on the shores of Wessex. King Ecbert (Linus Roache) has made many promises, and it remains to be seen if he will keep them. But ever the restless wanderer, Ragnar is searching for something more and he finds it in the mythical city of Paris. Rumored to be impenetrable to outside forces, Ragnar and his band of Norsemen must come together to break down its walls and cement the Vikings legend in history.The gripping family saga of Ragnar, Rollo (Clive Standen), Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) continues as alliances and loyal friendships are tested, faith is questioned and relationships are strained.

Chef Emeril films segments with three local culinary celebrities BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comThose of us anxious to see Naples get more widespread recognition of its foodie cred are happy to learn that some of our culinary super stars will be featured on Emerils Florida in February. The esteemed celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse has filmed segments with chefs Vincenzo Bertulia of Osteria Tulia and Charles Mereday of Meredays Fine Dining and with Pinchers Crab Shack owner Tony Phelan for an episode that will air on The Cooking Channel with later airings on The Food Network. The Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau and VISIT FLORIDA sponsored the episode. We view the Emerils Florida sponsorship as a solid tourism marketing investment since Floridas Paradise Coast has been steadily rising in awareness globally as a sought-after dining destination, says Collier Countys tourism executive Jack Wert. The fastgrowing list of chef-driven restaurants continues to add to the steady increase in vacation visits to our area. The 30-minute show is divided into four segments, starting with Chef Lagasses conversation with Chef Bertulia about his Italian restaurant, his relatives who work on his culinary team and the local organic produce he uses for his signature dishes. The next stop is Meredays Fine Dining, where Chef Lagasse talks with Chef Mereday about Naples dining scene and enjoys a few of his eponymous restaurants freshly made specialties. The hosts final destination is Pinchers Crab Shack, where Mr. Phelan explains how he built a fishing and restaurant empire in Florida after Texas oil industry went bust in the late 1980s. Airdates on the Cooking Channel are 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 15; 9:30 a.m. Monday, Feb. 16; and 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 19.

Cucina Italiana on Fifth Avenue South. Mr. Palmer previously served as general manager of the restaurant groups Chops City Grill in Bonita Springs.

My philosophy about wine education is that it should always be participatory, which as much hands-on learning as possible, he says. It must always be fun and interesting never boring, slow or snobbish.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 1-7, 2015 C29 THE DISHThe dish: Kobe (Wagyu) burger The price: $8 for the -pounder, $6.50 for the 1/3-pounder, $12 for the 1-pounder The place: Jimmy Ps Butcher Shop & Deli, in Moorings Plaza, 1833 Tamiami Trail N. The hours: Weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., weekends 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (grill shuts down 30 minutes before closing). The full menu: jimmypsbutcher shop.com The details: Attention, vegans and vegetarians: This is not the dish youre looking for. Nor is Jimmy Ps the deli (or butcher shop) you seek. Jimmy Ps is a paean to animal proteins. Every inch of refrigerated case, every shelf of cooler and freezer and every single deli table is covered in meat. We saw pedigreed beef, pork and chicken alongside ostrich and kangaroo. Primal cuts of meat, some too big to carry, others too dear to pay for (or invest in). Lunch for us was the half-pound Kobe (Wagyu) burger. In keeping with Jimmy Ps all-meat decor and menu, this was one of the beefiest-tasting burgers weve ever had. Perfectly cooked, intensely flavorful and just as juicy as wed hoped. This burger is a dish we plan to repeat, soon. One more thing: For an additional $2.50, you can add fries, onion rings or chips plus a soda if you want. Trust us, you want to.

The Counter serves Angus beef from humanely raised cows free of hormones and antibiotics. (Or select vegan, bison, turkey or chicken burgers). Then choose from a dozen cheeses, 32 toppings, 23 sauces, six buns (one is gluten free) or a salad. Milkshakes come in regular or adult versions (with a shot of your favorite alcoholic beverage). I enjoyed a turkey burger with Gruyere, cole slaw, grilled pineapple, roasted corn and black bean salsa, sauted onions and ginger soy glaze on a wheat bun. To my surprise, the whole thing even held together. My companion liked the Old School burger: beef with Tillamook cheddar, lettuce, red onion, pickle, tomato and red relish. Sweet potato fries and crispy onion strings were just right, as were cocktails and a brownie with ice cream, caramel and chocolate sauce. The servers could not have been nicer. Full bar. Food:1/2 Service : 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2013 FUSE Global Cuisine, 2500 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 456-4585 Fried duck mac and cheese, hog wings (braised pork fore shanks fried and tossed with chili garlic sauce, sesame seeds and green onions), golden beet salad with bucheron cheese and micro greens are but a few of the ways to start off a meal at this intriguing spot opened in November by chef/owner Greg Scarlatos, formerly of Angelinas) and his fiancee/business partner Monica Czechowska. Entree options offer similarly imaginative but not over-the-top combinations, such as Colorado lamb chops with tart cherry glaze and Stilton potato hash garnished with crisp Brussels sprouts or cobia and wild mushroom with huckleberry gastrique. Guava bread pudding with fresh strawberries made a fine end to the meal. Service was gracious, the ambience soothing. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed December 2013 Komoon, 3300 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 948-4663 Continuing the trend of restaurants offering multiple cuisines, Komoon serves the unusual combination of Japanese, Thai and Peruvian. The menu goes on for days. This can be a good thing for parties with a diverse range of tastes and preferences. But aside from a very nicely executed ceviche, none of the cuisines particularly outshines the others. You can reasonably expect that whichever ethnic direction you take, Komoon will not disappoint. The ceviche was a tangle of tender squid, shrimp and fish laced with lemon and lime juice and zest, red onion slivers and cilantro plated with traditional accompaniments of sweet potato slices and fresh and toasted Peruvian corn. The Fancy Tuna Roll was packed with tuna, avocado, scallions and jalapeno. For entrees, you cant go wrong with a sumptuous Panang curry as spicy as you want it, or a comforting bowl of smoky soba noodles laden with chicken and crisp vegetables. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2013 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This is a restaurant whose name aptly describes its mission: serving as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured from area farms and local waters. Its run by Jeff Mitchell, an alum of the Culinary Institute of America. The menu is creative, the setting unfussy and the staff friendly and accommodating. Local items are boldfaced on the menu, which changes as availability does. Clam flatbread, featuring Pine Island clams, local tomatoes and herbs on a thin, yeasty crust, was a great starter. So was the snapper ceviche, with locally grown serrano peppers, avocado, red onion, cilantro, golden grape tomatoes and citrus. Grilled gulf-caught cobia with tomato confit and grass-fed short ribs were both simply but expertly prepared. Sides of calabaza squash, crunchy chard and smashed potatoes were all cooked perfectly. For dessert: two minisized treats, Key lime panna cotta and bread pudding, both just right. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2013 Osteria Tulia, 466 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 213-2073 This restaurant sits along tony Fifth Avenue, but inside, Osteria Tulia is downright homey, simple and rustic, with food to match. Chef/owner Vincenzo Betulia spent more than a decade at Campiello, and now heads up his own place thats filled with family members creating superb authentic fare. Caponata and fresh bread whets the appetite. House-made ricotta with walnuts and fresh herbs and meatballs napped in tomato sauce and garnished with pine nuts, currants and melted Parmesan were great starters. The roasted chicken was a thing of wonder, tender and succulent, served with farro, acorn squash and locally grown black leaf kale. House-made garganelli with braised lamb sugo and sheep cheese will make pasta lovers swoon. For dessert, do not miss the ricotta fritters with slow-cooked berries and whipped cream. As befits such a homey establishments, service was warm and nurturing. Full bar.

CUISINEHave a look at local cookbooks to spice up your new yearThis new year, many of us are making resolutions to increase our culinary knowledge. Whether youd like to amp up the flavor, wow family and friends or improve your diet, we suggest you start close to home with books from Naples favored chefs and food writers. Some of these books are local classics, some are bestsellers and some are highly anticipated entries from newcomers on the local food scene; all of them will stand you in good stead when you start branching out in your own kitchen. Sea Salt By Fabrizio Aielli Home cooks who hope to scale the heights of haute cuisine will be well served by Sea Salt, Chef Aiellis book that includes recipes from his downtown restaurant of the same name. Need to win friends and influence people? Unfazed by molecular gastronomy and dry ice? Tackle the Kumamoto Oysters on a Foggy Day in Venice and savor the astonished expressions on your guests faces. The book was co-authored by Sanibel writer Chelle Koster Walton and includes a foreword by Coleman Andrews, former editor of Saveur magazine and current editor-in-chief of The Daily Meal. Chef Aielli accompanies each recipe with an explanation of the dishs origin. Its $35 at Sea Salt, Barbatella, amazon.com and select retailers. Artistry in Chocolate: A Story of Love By Norman Love Do you dream of chocolate? Marvel at the artistry required to create beautiful premium truffles? Pick up Mr. Loves new coffee table book, Artistry in Chocolate: A Story of L ove, if you w ant visions of cherry cordial truffles dancing in your head. It starts with chapters explaining Mr. Loves background, his move to Florida, his team and his philosophies on confections and business. Then there are photos dozens of them of the master confectioners creations. Even if you arent necessarily crazy about sweets, this book is a feast for the eyes and features some phenomenal work in food photography. Its $40 at Norman Love Confections salons in Naples and Fort Myers, and $50 at normanloveconfections.com. When Peacocks Were Roasted and Mullet Was Fried By Doris Reynolds Mrs. Reynolds, a longtime Naples Daily News food columnist and far longer Naples resident, published what has become a local classic among cookbooks in 1992. More of a culinary history of Naples than a cookbook, When Peacocks Were Roasted and Mullet Was Fried gives readers a better understanding of Naples more humble origins and characters. The recipes reflect the standard fare of the South and accompany entries about the people who settled here and in the surrounding areas. Occasionally, Mrs. Reynolds throws in a wild concoction that intrepid cooks should probably avoid. For example, resident Robert Bembry used to tell visitors that roasted pelican was a delicacy. Readers new to the area would be not advised to execute the provided recipe (or a pelican, for that matter). Most of the recipes are innocuous versions of dinner-table favorites; others, such as swamp cabbage and wild boar, are distinctive dishes of South Florida pioneers. This has become one of the standard reference books on local history and has graced the desks of authors, writers, editors, librarians and museum administrators throughout the area over the years. Take it for the knowledge it imparts and enjoy the recipes if the mood strikes. Find it for $24.95 in local gift shops and at amazon.com. Ambrosia Vegan Kitchen By Tricia Otte Local health food junkies are probably already f amiliar with Ms. Ottes line of prepared vegan dishes, but for those readers who are looking for tasty ways to lighten up their diet and eliminate animal products at the same time, her cookbook The Ambrosia Kitchen Cookbook is a great way to dip a toe into vegan cuisine. Ms. Ottes f ans have long craved items like her Crabby Cakes, Fennel-scented Hummus and Surprise Cookies and had to trek down to Food & Thought or Oakes Market for a taste, but now they can make their favorites at home. Current or aspiring vegans can purchase her book for $19.95 at Food & Thought or amazon. com. Alexanders Restaurant By Alexander Bernard Chef Bernards eponymous establishment has stood formidably along U.S. 41 for what seems like forever, but has really only been since 1994. Shining in New American and Continental cuisine, Chef Bernard did fans a favor in 2008 by publishing some of his standards and fan favorites in this volume. It provides readers with some excellent dishes that would be highly appropriate for entertaining or the holidays dishes such as herb-crusted rack of lamb and duck liver mousse, for example. Buy a copy for $32 at the restaurant, 4077 Tamiami Trail N.
