Floridas mental health need is great, but the funding isnt. And though Florida spends far less than the national average on mental health, that doesnt mean Floridians dont care. Some care passionately: People such as Michael McNally, Jane Manning and Lisa Blount, who will meet with a dozen or so other caring Floridians for what is called a Leadership Academy. The Jan. 21-23 conference will be held at Charlotte Behavioral Health Care in Punta Gorda. Six of these academies are conducted in Florida every year, one in each region of the states Department of Children and Families, and the need for such workshops is great. People with mental illnesses are marginalized, said Mr. McNally, indicating that the marginalizing starts with language. Terms like the mentally ill, Mr. CUBA. So near yet so remote. So beloved yet so reviled. So romanticized yet so misunderstood. So steeped in manners, culture and civility yet so brutalized by the harsh hands of tyrants. Cuba, confounding and confusing.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 COMMENTARY Gallery of meritIn the now-settling whimsy so many of us embraced as the new year got underway the remembering, the hoping, the vowing forward with champagne corks popping and the flag of merriment waving from the main mast let me add the last word. Or, if you will, the last fireworks. Here are the kernel stories of a few good people, neither rich or widely famous and unlike in their own rights, but each extraordinary, who have marched with us into the new year. Perhaps they can inspire you, as they have me. Paul Meloy: Born in Ohio and raised in Florida, Mr. Meloy is a farmer and rancher with an inventive genius for making things work, a gentle neighborliness, and a self-effacing modesty that belies his toughness and talent. Dr. Robert Hilliard: The son of immigrants to New York City, he cheated on his Army physical to enlist as a teenager in 1944, becoming a twicewounded combat veteran (he survived the Battle of the Bulge) and going on to save, with a fellow G.I. named Ed Herman, about 10,000 Jewish survivors of the German concentration camps who were ignored by American commanders after the German surrender. See the award-winning documentary Displaced: Miracle at St. Ottilien, or read his book, Surviving the Americans one of many hes published, both fiction and non-fiction to learn that story. But hed only just gotten started doing good in the world. He earned his undergraduate and graduate academic degrees from Columbia University after the war, protested publicly against the machinations of Sen. Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s, helped create public radio as we know it today, and, as a professor emeritus from Emerson College in Boston, still writes plays. At 89, with his friend and companion JoAnn Reese (another unrepentant do-gooder), he also continues to march in public protests nowadays against corporate callousness toward field workers who pick tomatoes in Florida. Diane Chernow: Raised in New York City, the daughter of a Scottish immigrant mother and a Jewish American father, Ms. Chernow has been the light in the lives of kindergartners for more than 30 years. Somehow, she can reach black, brown and white, rich and poor, boys and girls, awakening each with the notion of a common humanity we all share, and teaching them to read and count, with a skill unmatched in my experience. Burdie Baker: The self-described Black Redneck and Honorary Mayor of Charleston Park, Mr. Baker was raised in poverty and an abusive home on a Georgia farm owned by a white man who threatened to shoot any of the family that sought to leave. In 1958 at the age of 19, he rescued his mother and all seven younger siblings under cover of darkness, transporting them into southern Florida. Hes been helping friends and neighbors ever since. Mr. Baker can grow his own food, harvest his own meat and fish, and deliver cheer and understanding into any day, no matter how dark. At the moment, hes is riding that chemo bull in the cancer rodeo. Bill Kilpatrick: Born in the Hudson River Valley just north of New York City and the author of a memoir, Brassies, Mashies and Bootleg Scotch, about growing up on and around golf courses with his father, Mr. Kilpatrick is a veteran of World War II who survived seven missions as a bombardier over Germany before being badly wounded on the eighth but he, too, had only just begun. A writer who continues to produce fiction when he isnt hobknobbing with his wife, Phyllis, he has written for or served as an editor at Popular Mechanics, Better Homes & Gardens, Field & Stream, Fly Fishing, Esquire and True, among others. He also worked as a daily newspaper writer, editor and writing coach for almost 15 years in the Sunshine State. Laura Germino and Greg Asbed: Graduates of Brown University where they met she went on to serve in the Peace Corps in West Africa and he worked for an aid organization in Haiti they married and moved to Florida more than two decades ago to co-found the most dynamic and effective American farmworkers organization of the 21st century in the United States: the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. In 2014 alone, the coalition earned a Freedom medal from the Roosevelt Institute (as have Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama and four American presidents); the Clinton Global Citizen Award; and red carpet treatment in November, when actress Eva Langorias acclaimed film about the coalition, Food Chains, was released nationally. May the light of their bright spirits, all, show us the road forward this year. w t s m t w e roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly When Obamacare came to HarvardObamacare has come to Harvard, and the faculty is in a state of shock and dismay. In what has to be considered an early contender for the most hilarious and enjoyable news story of the year, The New York Times recounts the tumult over Obamacare in Cambridge. For years, the Times writes, Harvards experts on health economics and policy have advised presidents and Congress on how to provide health benefits to the nation at a reasonable cost. But those remedies will now be applied to the Harvard faculty, and the professors are in an uproar. In other words, they are getting the change they believed in good and hard. As a wag commented on Twitter, karma is a pre-existing condition. The Harvard imbroglio is a little like the famously free-market University of Chicago economics faculty launching a revolt against tax cuts or deregulation. The enrollment guide from Harvards human-resources department explains that rising health-care costs, some caused by Obamacare, account for the changes hitting the pocketbooks of the custodians of learning at Harvard. It cites specifically free preventive services and the extension of coverage for younger adults up to age 26 (as well as the impending Cadillac tax on pricey health plans). The obstructionists on the Faculty of Arts and Sciences voted by a lopsided margin against the health-care changes, but they were too late. According to the Times, history professor Mary D. Lewis is a leader of the faculty opposition, which makes her practically the Mitch McConnell of Harvard University. Lets hope she has a plausible repeal-and-replace plan and isnt merely campaigning on the power of sheer, nihilistic rejectionism. Richard F. Thomas, a Virgil scholar, said the health-care changes are deplorable. (Quoth the poet, Each of us bears his own Hell.) They are deeply regressive. (It never troubles the wolf how many the sheep be.) And they are a sign of the corporatization of the university. (O accursed hunger of gold, to what dost thou not compel human hearts!) Dont worry, Harvard faculty, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is coming to the rescue. Who better than a Harvard Law graduate to swoop in to save professors at his dear old alma mater from the consequences of their own folly? Actually, the changes Harvard is experiencing are quite mild. By any measure, the schools plan is still incredibly generous. Faculty will, for instance, now have an annual deductible of $250, which is hardly exorbitant. Perhaps the Harvard faculty foolishly believed that other alum, President Barack Obama, when he said Obamacare would save the average family $2,500? In a properly constructed market, consumers even including Harvard professors should indeed bear more of the costs of their health care directly. But in todays system, consumers tend not to have free choice of their plans, and Obamacare layers on top of that system costly mandates that make no sense. The Harvard faculty can whine and stew all it likes, but the president has sent an unmistakable message to such malcontents: The law is the law. Harvard won the health-care debate years ago, and theres no going back on it now. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Close Guantanamo then give it back to CubaThis week marks the 13th anniversary of the arrival of the first post9/11 prisoners to Guantanamo Bay, the most notorious prison on the planet. This grim anniversary, and the beginning of normalization of diplomatic relations between the U.S and Cuba, serves as a reminder that we need to permanently close the prison and return the land to its rightful owners, the Cuban people. It is time to put an end to this dark chapter of United States history. The detention facilities at Guantanamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon as practicable, President Barack Obama wrote nearly six years ago, in one of his first executive orders, on Jan. 22, 2009. Despite this, the prison remains open, with 127 prisoners left there after Kazakhstan accepted five who were released on Dec. 30. There have been 779 prisoners known to have been held at the base since 2002, many for more than 10 years without charge or trial. Thanks to WikiLeaks and its alleged source, Chelsea Manning, we know most of their names. Col. Morris Davis was the chief prosecutor in Guantanamo from 2005 to 2007. He resigned, after an appointee of George W. Bush overrode his decision forbidding the use of evidence collected under torture. Davis later told me, I was convinced we werent committed to having full, fair and open trials, and this was going to be more political theater than it was going to be justice. Obama did create a special envoy for Guantanamo closure, although the person who most recently held the position, Cliff Sloan, abruptly resigned at the end of December without giving a reason. In a just-published opinion piece in The New York Times, Sloan wrote, As a high-ranking security official from one of our staunchest allies on counterterrorism (not from Europe) once told me, The greatest single action the United States can take to fight terrorism is to close Guantanamo. The U.S. has imposed a crushing embargo against Cuba for more than half a century, ostensibly to punish the small country for its form of governance. What kind of alternative does the United States show Cubans on that corner of their island that the U.S. controls? A hellish, military prison beyond the reach of U.S. laws, where hundreds of men have been held, most without charge, and many beaten and tortured. President Obama rightly chastises Egypt for imprisoning three Al-Jazeera journalists, Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed. They should be released, Obama told reporters last August. Yet, sadly, Egypt only needs to look to the U.S. to determine acceptable treatment of AlJazeera journalists. Sami al-Hajj was a cameraman for the network. He was covering the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 when the Pakistani military picked him up and handed him over to U.S. forces. After 17 brutal days at Bagram Air Field, he was transferred to Guantanamo Bay, where he was held without charge for more than six years. He was tortured, beaten and humiliated. Al-Hajj went on a hunger strike for 480 days, and was subjected to forced feeding through nasal tubes. He was released in May 2008. I sat down with Sami al-Hajj in December 2012 at Al-Jazeeras headquarters in Doha, Qatar, where he was heading the networks Human Rights and Public Liberties desk. He said the U.S tried to coerce him into spying while he was imprisoned: They (offered) to give me a U.S.A. nationality and take care about my family if I work with them in CIA to continue my job being journalist with Al-Jazeera, just send them information about the link between Al-Jazeera and al-Qaida and the terrorist people and some people in the Middle East. Of course, I refused to do that. I told them, Im journalist, and I will die as a journalist. The United States knew he was innocent, but wanted him to spy on Al-Jazeera, so it subjected him to years of harsh imprisonment in an attempt to break him? The United States took Guantanamo Bay by force in 1898, during the Spanish-American War, and extracted an indefinite lease on the property from Cuba in 1903. Returning Guantanamo Bay to Cuba will begin to right more than a century of wrongs that the U.S. government has perpetrated there. Most importantly, the return of the Guantanamo Bay prison and naval base will make it harder for any future war criminals, whether in the White House, the Pentagon or the CIA and their enthusiastic cheerleaders in Congress, to use Guantanamo as their distant dungeon, to inflict torture and terror on prisoners, many of them innocent, far from the eyes of the people of the United States, and far from the reach of criminal courts.

I first encountered him when he was vice president of the board for Angels Undercover, which provides clothing essentials to children who would otherwise come to school inadequately dressed. Our paths crossed again when he became involved with Gulfshore Playhouse. He volunteered to help in any way he could, and soon after became a member of the board. In addition, he now co-chairs the professional theater companys gala committee. Dave also serves on the board for ArtisNaples and believes strongly in the venues important role in the arts and culture of Southwest Florida. Dave grew up in Baltimore and attended McDaniel College in Westminster, Md., where he earned a bachelors degree in psychology. The best part of college: I met my wife, Bobbi, there, he says. With an apparent lack of interest in psychology after studying it for four years, he went to graduate school to learn something about communications (advertising, public relations, marketing). In 1965, he earned a masters in mass communications and public relations from American University. He moved to Pittsburgh for a very junior position in the public relations department of a Ketchum, an advertising agency that handled several dozen Fortune 500 companies. He spent the next 35 years at the company, moving from Pittsburgh to San Francisco and then in the early 1980s to New York City, where he stayed for 20 years as president, COO, CEO and then chairman. During this period, Ketchum grew from a four-office firm in the U.S. to one of the top 10 firms globally, with offices around the world. Dave was the founder of the industry trade association that today represents almost every public relations firm headquartered in the U.S. At the turn of the century, he was named by the industrys leading trade publication among the top 10 influences in the public relations business of the 20th century. He and Bobbi have been married 50 years. She keeps me grounded and is always supportive and encouraging, he says. While I was traveling around the world, she raised two wonderful children. Daughter Melissa and son Craig both live in southern California; Craig and his wife are responsible for Dave and Bobbis 7-year-old triplet grandchildren and their 5-year-old brother.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 military commanders since the USS Maine blew sky-high in Havana Harbor on February 15, 1898 returns as a topic of raging national debate. Actually, the problem of how to deal with Cuba has never left us, but President Obamas announcement last month that he seeks to normalize relations with this longtime foe has simply rekindled a fire that was never extinguished. The reaction to President Obamas initiative has been as schizophrenic as it has been fierce. For some, any accommodation, however slight, with the Castro brothers dictatorial regime is appeasement that borders on treason. To others, it is simply a recognition that the American policy of attempting to isolate Cuba (a policy rooted in the geopolitics of the longgone Cold War era) has failed and that both countries have suffered as a result. It is not a matter that will be settled simply. No surprise there, for nothing involving Cuba is settled simply. Consider this: No one can say with absolute assurance what caused the explosion aboard the Maine. Conventional wisdom at the time held that it was a mine most likely deployed by the Spanish that sank the battleship. In 1976, investigators for the U.S. Navy re-examined the evidence and concluded that a fire probably but not certainly ignited the ships ammunition stores. In other words, it most likely was an accident, not an act of war. But to this day almost 117 years after the fact the tragedy is still open to debate and interpretation. Even Cubas possible involvement in the assassination of President John Kennedy in 1963 remains a matter of intense speculation, although no conclusive link has ever been uncovered. So, given that backdrop, do not expect quick and easy answers and solutions to this business of normal relations with Cuba. Our relations with Cuba have never been normal, so we really have no reference point in that regard. Still, we can speculate on where if anywhere we go from here and what the future of Cuban-American relations might look like. All of this is vitally important to the state of Florida home to an estimated 1.2 million CubanAmericans, many of whom came here to flee oppression in their native land. Because of its ethnicity and proximity (90 miles of water, the Florida Straits, separate Key West from Cubas shore), Florida might be the biggest beneficiary of loosened trade and travel sanctions. But nowhere do passions about Cuba run higher than in Florida, and if changes are in the offing they will face determined opposition and unrelenting scrutiny. Nobody in Florida has wanted to finesse the issue (of Cuban-American relations), says Darryl Paulson, professor emeritus of political science at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg. Cuba, like a state income tax, is the third rail of Florida politics, Dr. Paulson adds. Nobody wants to touch it. But its going to be increasingly difficult now to avoid the issue. Its on the table. Before we look to the future and what normalization might hold for the United States, Florida and Cuba, lets first examine where we have been. It has been a splendid little war. That was how John Hay, secretary of state under presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt, described the Spanish-American War. Splendid is the sort of adjective one only applies to a war in which one does not personally take to the battlefield, as was the case with Secretary Hay. In truth, there was nothing splendid at all about the conflict. The sinking of the Maine was a casus belli that William Randolph Hearst, the press lord, and a host of power-grubbing politicians used to justify American military involvement in Cuba. The war was portrayed as a noble effort by the United States to free Cuba from the yoke of Spanish tyranny (a 19th Century version of our latest Iraq War, if you will), but it was little more than a heavy-handed land grab that (through the Treaty of Paris in 1898) netted the U.S. Guam, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Spain did indeed renounce its claim to Cuba, but that really was superfluous, from the viewpoint of the United States. For decades thereafter, Cuba was something of a playground for hedonistic tourists a fine place to gambol and gamble. Ernest Hemingway had a home there, and he was renowned for drinking his companions under the tables at the Floridita (where he favored the daiquiris) and the Bodeguita del Medio (where he swilled mojitos). Under the rule of strongman Fulgencio Batista, Cuba was an anything-goes kind of place. As the great British writer Graham Greene observed in his memoir, Ways of Escape, Havana, in the ring-ading-ding days before the Cuban Revolution, was a city where every vice was permissible and every trade possible. Batista especially favored investments by American organized crime, and in 1946, the leaders of the Mafia convened in Havana to plot strategy. All the American mob bigwigs were there (Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Santo Trafficante and the like) and Frank Sinatra flew in to croon the goons. (The crime lords prospered under Batista, but when Fidel Castro came to power, their illgotten assets were seized. The mobsters were so incensed by the Cuban leaders effrontery that they later volunteered to help the CIA bump him off.) Batista was brutal and oppressive to anyone who dared to challenge him. He was a son of a bitch, to be sure, but in the view of the United States he was OUR son of a bitch because he was not a communist. Then, in January of 1959, Fidel Castro, the scruffy leader of the Cuban Revolution, marched triumphantly into Havana, and Batista was history. Fidel Castro was a son of a bitch, too, but he not only was NOT our son of a bitch, he was a Marxist-Leninist son of a bitch who made goo-goo eyes toward Moscow, and therein lay a deep, deep problem for the United States. Ever since Fidel and his brother Raul (who now runs the country) took over, it has been one headache after another for the United States. The disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion, the near-apocalyptic Cuban Missile Crisis, the Cuban Embargo, the Mariel Boatlift the list goes on. Lord knows that the United States tried everything it could think of to depose the abhorrent Fidel. The Bay of Pigs fiasco was the most noteworthy example, but there were numerous plots and plans, dreamed up by a flummoxed CIA, to either kill or discredit the desCUBAFrom page 1 y ht tabl B f ut u iza t Un C u w h l i H u M PEGGY FARREN/ COURTESY PHOTOClassic cars that predate the Communist revolution populate the streets of Havana.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 NEWS A9 pot. Some of these clandestine efforts embarrassingly exposed later were pathetically comical and involved things like providing the dictator with lethal cigars or surreptitiously smearing a salve containing the hallucinogenic drug LSD on the steering wheel of his automobile in the hope that he would trip out in public and appear loonier than he already was. Obviously, the United States had no clue how to handle the growing menace less than 100 miles to the south. And so, after every harebrained initiative and covert action had been considered and discarded, it was decided that the best policy was simply to sever diplomatic and trade ties (hence the embargo) and act as if Cuba did not exist. And that, in a nutshell, is where it stood until President Obama announced his plan last month. Things have changed in Cuba over time, but not necessarily for the better. There is new leadership. President Raul Castro assumed the reins of power from an obviously ill Fidel in 2006, but the brothers are merely flip sides of the same coin. Under Raul, Cuba remains a place of destitution and despair. Still, it was President Raul Castro who negotiated with the United States regarding normalization. No one believes that Raul Castros basic political stance has changed or softened. It was, as The New York Times noted, an economic decision at its core. As one expert on Cuba told the newspaper, the decision to discuss normalization with the United States reflected a desire on the part of the Cuban leadership to see what works best while still maintaining social and economic controls. President Obamas overture toward Cuba is constrained by the economic embargo that has been in place for 50 years. There are a number of obstacles to ending the embargo, whose removal would, naturally, greatly enhance trade between the two countries. Only Congress can lift the trade ban. With Republican majorities in both the House and the Senate, that seems unlikely. (Mr. Obama also favors reopening an American embassy in Havana, but the Republican-led Congress probably would not authorize the funds needed to accomplish even this symbolic step.) I dont see the embargo being lifted anytime soon, says William A. Messina, an agricultural economist at the University of Florida who studies Cuban affairs. It will be very difficult to do. Mr. Messina points out that the Helms-Burton Act of 1996 codified and strengthened the embargo. But he notes that subtle pressures ultimately may erode opposition to increasing trade with Cuba. Many large agricultural interests in the United States would like to see more robust economic activity between the two countries. It will be interesting to see how Republican senators and representatives from farm states react to pressure from their constituents, he says. There will be pressure to ship more of what we produce (to Cuba). Mr. Messina, who has visited Cuba, is convinced that the islands suffering economy is what has motivated this latest round of talks with the United States. (The Cuban leadership) recognizes that it cant go on the way they are now, he says. But I wouldnt expect that the Castro regime is going to make significant political changes. There is a lot of bureaucratic rigidity in Cuba. Mr. Messina says a softening of trading barriers between the two countries would in the long-term be a good thing for Florida. We are natural trading partners. (The United States has) good products, good prices and were right next door, Phil Peters, head of the Cuba Research Center, said in an interview with The New York Times. Im optimistic but it does require a partner. Its one thing to say well sell, but the Cubans have to want to buy. Travel is another area in which Florida might benefit from some sort of rapprochement with Cuba. Roy Ramsey, director of operations at Betty Maclean Travel in Naples, says there is a huge pent-up demand for travel to Cuba, especially among baby boomers. For the past two years or so, weve been sending about 20 to 30 people to Cuba, he says. Mr. Ramsey estimates that about 85 percent of the travelers he deals with would like to see all travel restrictions to the island lifted. In 2013, Mr. Ramsey and his wife, Mary Ann, visited Cuba as a part of a people-to-people program. While unrestricted travel to Cuba is forbidden, exchange programs and journalistic visits all of which require approval from the United States government have continued. Mr. Ramsey says he found Cuba to be a mysterious island of much allure. For 50 years we have been hearing just one side of the story, he says. When you travel there, you see the other side. Mr. Ramsey says the Cuban people are warm, friendly and very literate. The islands economic woes are evident, according to Mr. Ramsey, but he notes that the medical care is free, although not the quality of care we get in the United States. But, still, everyone is provided with health care. According to the World Health Organization, life expectancy in Cuba (78 years) virtually matches that of the United States (79 years). Any real and lasting moves to bring about normalization with Cuba are probably years down the road. But the political and cultural effects are already beginning to be seen and felt within Florida. One of the most dramatic consequences of a new Cuba policy could be a shifting of emphasis, within Floridas Cuban-American community, from Miami to Tampa. Miami has long been the epicenter of Cuban-American power within the state, but that is beginning to change, and President Obamas recent overtures are accelerating the change. In terms of size, the Miami metropolitan area is supreme, with nearly one million Cuban-Americans living there, compared to 80,000 or so in the Tampa Bay region. But the Cuban-American community is fracturing, with younger members showing more interest in fostering relations with the island, while their older counterparts many of whom fled Castros tyranny remain largely resistant to such change., In a nationwide poll of 400 CubanAmericans conducted last month for the Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald and the Tampa Bay Times, the fault lines were already beginning to reveal themselves. Cuban-Americans living in Florida opposed normalization by a 56-35 percent margin. Cuban-Americans living outside of Florida favored normalization by 61-32 percent. The Miami Herald said the poll indicated that Cuban-Americans in Florida are far more conservative than in other states, where theyre more likely to resemble more liberal-leaning nonCuban Hispanics. Still, even in Florida, younger CubanAmericans are more likely to welcome changes involving the relationship between the United States and Cuba. The poll shows there are two CubanAmerican communities, said Fernand Amandi, the pollster who oversaw the study. There is the older exile community that has dominated the discussion about Cuba policy for years, and there is the emergence of the younger generation, the CubanAmerican community of the present and future. Raul Moas is a 26-yearold Cuban-American living in the Little Havana area of Miami. Mr. Moas, whose grandparents fled Cuba after Castros takeover, is executive director of Roots of Hope, a private organization that focuses on youth empowerment in Cuba. Mr. Moas is skeptical that Mr. Obamas move toward normalization will yield dramatic breakthroughs with the Castro government. To be honest, he says, I think all of this is a bit overblown. Even with his misgivings, Mr. Moas looks at the state of relations between Cuba and the United States with a hardeyed pragmatism that often is lacking in his elders. He says the Cuban-American community especially in Miami and its environs cannot dismiss the notion of normalization out of hand. (The Cuban-American community) right now has two choices, according to Mr. Moas. We can sit on the sidelines and pout because there are no guarantees that the Cuban government will change its ways or we can jump on the train and help drive it by recommending changes that we would like to see in our Cuba policy. We must have a say in how we can capitalize on any opportunities (that arise) as we move forward. In Florida, the exile community is strongest (and hence most intractable when it comes to Cuba) in the Miami area. To the north, in Tampa, the CubanAmerican population is smaller but also more removed from its native Cuban roots. Many of the Cuban-Americans living in the Tampa Bay region are descendants of immigrants who came there in the 19th century as part of the cigar-making industry that prospered in Ybor City, which remains to this day as a vital and colorful center of Cuban culture and heritage. To these CubanAmericans, the Castros and their dictatorship evoke less visceral reactions and economic realism is the order of the day.

Such denunciations were to be expected; the Cuban-American exile community, particularly in Miami, has long supported the Republican Party and its candidates. By contrast, in the Tampa Bay region they were talking about how to parlay diplomacy into hard cash. U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, a Democrat whose district includes parts of Tampa and St. Petersburg, was quick to seize the economic initiative. We will engage the entire community (to) work toward positive change that Americas policy shift will provide whether its travel, trade or cultural exchange opportunities, Rep. Castor said in a prepared statement. Other leaders in the Tampa Bay area also welcomed the policy change. This community is about building opportunities, and we do that best when we come together proactively to pave a pathway towards that, said Bob Rohrlack, president of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce. It was also announced that early this year the chamber of commerce and Tampa International Airport will host a community forum that will educate Tampa Bay families and businesses on the evolving landscape tied to (President Obamas) historic announcement to normalize relations with Cuba. Dr. Paulson, the political scientist at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg, and an expert on the workings of the Republican Party in Florida, says that, in the end, economic matters and the emergence of younger, less-doctrinaire leaders in the Cuban-American community may determine the extent to which normalization proceeds and how it is viewed in Florida. The new generation (of CubanAmericans) never lived in Cuba, never experienced what their parents and grandparents experienced, he says. And these young people are less supportive of the Republican Party and its stance toward Cuba. Dr. Paulson points out that all sorts of businesses and industries sense potential here the hotel industry, the cruise industry and others see a new market and growth opportunities. How this will play out politically remains to be seen, he says. But the definition of politics, when you get down to it, is self-interest. Somebodys going to win and somebodys going to lose, thats for sure. But there is no one who can say right now who the winners or losers will be. Well just have to wait and see, and its probably going to take a good while for all of this to sort itself out.

Vet Faye Bethell of North Walsham, England, told the Eastern Daily Press in December that there was nothing special about the fish, but that the customer just liked it a lot. In fact, the goldfish likely did not even have a pet name as Bethell in an interview spoke intimately of another patient by name (Cadbury, the skunk). (Bethells procedure involved removing the patient from the bowl, flooding its gills with anesthetic-fortified water, and using a tiny scalpel to remove lumps that were causing it constipation, with the surgery guided by a miniature heart-rate monitor.) Iraqi TV goes Jerry SpringerIraqs government-run channel, Iraqiyya TV, has a reality show reminiscent of American confrontational programs, but is designed to force captured ISIS fighters to acknowledge the pain they have created. One episode of In the Grip of the Law (described in a December Associated Press dispatch) showed family members of carbombing victims on a street corner in Baghdad haranguing one of the men convicted of the crime. A young man in a wheelchair, having lost his father in the attack, faced off against the convict, screaming until the jihadist began weeping, as the cameras rolled.Wait, what? On Nov. 6, a couple (aged 68 and 65) were hospitalized after spending almost 13 hours locked in their car inside their own garage in Alexandra, New Zealand. The night before, they had been unable to remember a salesmans tutorial on how to unlock their new Mazda 3 from the inside and had spent the night assuming they were trapped because they had forgotten to bring along the battery-operated key. The wife was unconscious when neighbors finally noticed them, and her husband was struggling to breathe. (The door unlocks manually, of course.) At first, it seemed another textbook case of a wrongly convicted murderer being released after a long prison stint (15 years), based on a re-examination of evidence. Illinois officials freed Alstory Simon, who had confessed in 1999 to killing two teenagers (before a defendants advocacy organization convinced a judge that the confession had been coerced). That 1999 confession had allowed the man previously convicted, Anthony Porter, to go free, but prosecutors in October 2014 had second or third thoughts. They once again believe that Porter was the killer even though a different defendants advocacy organization had originally worked to free him. (In any event, double jeopardy prevents Porters retrial.) Undersheriff Noel Stephen of Okeechobee County, Fla., acknowledged to WPBF-TV in December that among the public services his office performs is supervising parents spanking of children. After two sisters argued on Dec. 29, their father decided to administer a whipping to one and asked Deputy Stephen to drop by and make sure he stayed within the law. Thats not something we advertise to do, said the deputy, but he estimates he has monitored about a dozen spankings.Government in action The Government Accountability Office was on the job in December, issuing an emphatic ruling that the National Weather Service could not legally issue its workers disposable cups, plates and utensils on the job. Such items are personal, GAO declared, even though most NWS facilities are in remote locations, staffed by twoperson shifts that almost force employees to eat on the premises. You cant run out and grab a burger, one employee said. Nonetheless, after a lengthy deliberative process, GAO said its decision is final. In a November ruling, Frances minister of housing and minister of ecology jointly announced further streamlining of law books, removing bulky, out-of-date regulations. Among the rescissions, beginning Dec. 1, is the ban on installing toilets in kitchens. Best recent foreign news Chinas Gxnews.com.cn reported in December the arrest of a man in Yulin City, accused of stealing more than 2,000 items of underwear from women in his neighborhood, taken within the last year. He hid his stash above ceiling tiles in stairwells in his apartment building, but he drew attention when one of the ceiling spaces caved in from the weight of the garments, showering the stairs in an array of colorful lingerie. (Just within the last month, according to Hong Kongs South China Morning Post, two other men, in Zhejiang and Hubei provinces, have been detained for similar crimes. In the latter case, the alleged thief was also wearing lingerie.) British makeup artist Jordan James Parke, 23, told Londons The Sun in December how he had fallen in love with the look of U.S. celebrity Kim Kardashian and thus had forced himself to spend the equivalent of about $150,000 on more than 50 cosmetic procedures to adopt her pouty look, including lip and cheek fillers, eyebrow tattoos and laser hair removal. I love everything about Kim ... the most gorgeous woman ever, he said. Her skin is perfect, her hair, everything about her (except that, in The Sun report, only her parts above the neck were mentioned). Artist Megumi Igarashi, 42, known as no-good girl in Japan, taunted officials with over-the-top pornography twice in 2014, first in July when she designed a kayak in the image of her genitals and then sought donations by sending contributors data on how to make a 3-D-printed model of her vagina. In her December arrest, according to a BBC News dispatch, she had complained of the contradictions in Japanese culture (also cited in previous News of the Weird stories) that allow glorified public displays of the penis as a symbol of fertility, but banish the vulva from public sight.

There are people who have mental illness, but by using the term the mentally ill, you strip people of their person. He likened it to referring to people with cancer as the cancers. Theres a lot of discrimination, Ms. Blount said. She has heard people use the dismissive words, those people. Were your brothers, your sisters, your husbands your wives, your friends, Mr. McNally said. Were everywhere.Not enough moneyIn Florida, though, people with mental illnesses face steeper challenges. Based on state spending, Floridians with such diagnoses are among the most marginalized in the nation. Recent numbers show Floridas per capita spending on mental health are 49th in the nation. Thats according to both the National Association of Mental Illness and the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, which peg Floridas per capita spending on mental health at $39.55. The national average is $120.19. Only Idaho ($36.64) spends less per capita on taking care of the mental health needs of its citizens. Things are being done, though. Things such the Leadership Academy, a meeting of the minds of people who work in the field and people affected by mental illness. The academys purpose is to share information and spread knowledge. Mr. McNally is what is called a CLEAR training coordinator. CLEAR stands for Connecting Leadership, Education, Advocacy and Recovery. Ms. Manning and Ms. Blount are trainers who will, in Mr. McNallys words, be facilitating this academy.Power to the people The workshops are designed to help people help themselves, and people with mental illness take part. Its collective selfdetermination, Mr. McNally said. Workshops helping people learn to take initiatives to learn how to collaborate with others. For many years folks who had a mental illness everybody else spoke for them and they were never involved, Mr. McNally said. How does it not make sense to have a person with a mental illness come to the table for collaboration? It would be like having a conflict about how to manage nine months of pregnancy and only having men at the table. So one of the things that has happened is that people with mental illness have been marginalized. People taking the attitude that theyre not smart, they cant participate effectively, and so well decide whats best for them. At the academies, people with diagnoses help make decisions. They also learn about how to get involved. As noted in a CLEAR brochure, It is about empowerment. We want to see collaboration and teamwork. Were all in this together, Mr. McNally said. There are so many misconceptions about mental health. Part of what needs to happen (is) we need to empower people who have mental illnesses. How do you advocate? How do you make inroads? Those questions are addressed at the Leadership Academy workshops. Participants at the Punta Gorda workshop will come in with a cross-section of diagnoses, including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Finding people with a diagnosis of mental illness is easy, Mr. McNally said, because one in four American families is affected. The National Association of Mental Illnesss website confirms that percentage is about 25 percent, which means about 61.5 million Americans have some form of mental illness. The input of folks with mental illnesses is necessary at the Leadership Academy, and they will be expected to participate. Mr. McNally asks participants to come to the table with concerns and bring with you solutions collaborations to fix the problems. Thats part of what the academy teaches. Another topic the workshops cover is using the proper language. People say, Weve got to end the stigma, Mr. McNally said. But, he added, One of the ways were going to end the stigma is to not use the word. There is no stigma to mental illness any more than theres a stigma to having cancer. And as with cancer, help is needed. Theres so much misunderstanding of mental illness, Mr. McNally said. A lot of the attitude is, Just pull yourself up by the bootstraps and get on with it. But not everyone can do that. Having recently conducted a workshop in Miami, Ms. Manning knows they are challenging. One gentleman came to me during lunch the first day and said, I dont think Im going to come back. He was the only gentleman there. He felt outnumbered. I said, What can I do to make this academy a positive experience for you? He said, Could you tell them theyre not listening to me? I said, Absolutely. I will do that. They apologized to him. He stuck it out. By the weekend, he had us laughing and in stitches He was one of those who lives with mental illness. Meanwhile, Florida muddles along with little funding support. The need is great, but the funding is not. So people are working together to make a difference through programs such as the Leadership Academy workshop. If we were 20th instead of 50th, the funding stream would be significantly larger, Mr. McNally said, which would mean access to care would not be as much of a serious issue. But as it is now, he said, You have to wait three to six months for a psychiatric appointment. The Leadership Academy is a workshop, with the emphasis on the work. Topics to be covered include identifying issues, developing clear goals and action plans, community advocacy organizations, how to conduct effective meetings, handling votes, the legislative process in Florida and funding sources and strategies. The Leadership Academies give participants tools to help themselves and others.Those interested in participating in the Leadership Academy health-care professionals, those affected by mental illness and their family and friends can call 260-7313.

The Friendliest Practice You Will Find239-300-9693 KOVEL: ANTIQUES Hester Bateman, a metal-working pioneer BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL In 18th-century England, most women married when young, had children and learned to cook, take care of the house and children, make textiles or at least create bedding or clothing, and be her husbands helper when needed. Hester Bateman was an exception. She married a man who made gold chains. He died after they had six children. He left the metal-working tools to his wife in his will so he must have known what a skillful silversmith she was. Hester became a registered silvermaker in 1761 using the mark HB in script. By 1774 she was in her own business with two of her sons. They used the latest methods and made their silverware from thin sheets of silver rather than the Sheffield plate type made by others. They stayed with traditional styles and made everything from tea caddies to inkwells. Hester retired in 1790, and died in 1794. She was the first well-known female silversmith in England, and her work has always been popular with todays collectors. I knew about the pioneering woman. While in college I looked for, bought for $15, and still have a pair of Hester Bateman silver sugar tongs. It was one of my first antiques. Brunk Auctions in Asheville, N.C., sold a Bateman teapot in the fall of 2014, for $2,832.Q: In 1960 we bought a queensize birch bed and dresser marked Cal Shop. I cant find any information about the maker or value. Can you help? A: The trademark Cal Shop was owned by California Furniture Shops, Ltd., which was based in Los Angeles. It was in business from at least the late 1940s into the 1970s or s. Your bedroom set would sell as used furniture if its in excellent shape. Try selling it locally, though, so shipping costs will not be high. Q: I have a 300-400 pound iron anvil that was given to me almost 40 years ago. I sprayed it black because it was rusting, and its rusting a little bit again. The anvil is dated 1917. I used it as a decoration in the past, but I have no use for it anymore. Can you give me some idea of its worth? A: Cast-iron anvils have been made in different sizes and shapes for different uses. Anvils weighing several hundred pounds were primarily used in industry, while smaller ones were used by farmers to sharpen tools. Someone who collects old tools or vintage farm equipment might be interested an old anvil, but a large, heavy anvil could be harder to sell than one thats easier to pick up and display. The date on your anvil adds interest. Recent prices include $192 for a 115-pound anvil and $380 for a 160-pound anvil. Q: I have several figurines (resin, I think) that range from 3 to 5 inches tall. Each is marked with KFS on the back. They also are marked on the front of its base with a character name, including Hans, Fritz, Prince Valiant, Popeye, etc. One of them is a man in a sailor suit and is marked Tim Tyler. Can you tell me something about him, how many different figurines were made, and if they are collectible? A: The initials KFS stand for King Features Syndicate, who owned the comic strips and the rights to the characters. A series of 24 figurines was made by Syroco for King Features Syndicate in 1944. Twelve of them, including Tim Tyler, were offered as Pillsbury Enriched Farina premiums. Tim Tyler was a cartoon strip that debuted in 1928 and was featured in newspapers, comic books and movies. The last strip ran in 1996. The figurine is shown in a Navy uniform because it was issued during World War II. Most of these figurines sell online for $15 to $30 each. Q: I have a mug that reads Ovaltines Golden Annie-versary in black, gold and white letters on one side. It has a big gold number with a picture of Little Orphan Annie and her dog, Sandy, inside the zero. Whats the anniversary and what is the mug worth? A: This mug was issued in 1981 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Ovaltines sponsorship of the Little Orphan Annie radio show. Ovaltine sponsored the show from 1931 to 1940. Their advertising agency wrote the scripts for the show, which promoted Ovaltine. Ovaltine was first made in Switzerland in 1904 and originally was called Ovomaltine because it included eggs and malt. The name became Ovaltine in Englishspeaking countries in 1909. Ovaltines Annie-versary mugs sell for $5 to $15.Tip: Stains on crystal stemware sometimes can be removed by rubbing the stain with a cut lemon or a cloth dipped in turpentine.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 Learn more at www.RiverchaseDermatology.comSome health-care predictionsFor the past eight years as president and CEO of NCH, I have led off the first Straight Talk of the new year by sharing thoughts, aspirations, and predictions for the coming year. Lets keep up the tradition with the following five predictions: Nationally, the number of uninsured people will continue to fall Since implementation of the Affordable Care Act, uninsured rates have fallen nationally by 30 percent. Florida, however, continues to lag with about 1 million uninsured, making us among the top states for both adults and children lacking health-care insurance. A Healthy Florida Works is a coalition, supported by more than 600 businesses and Chambers of Commerce, to decrease the cost of insurance by having Florida cooperate with the federal government to obtain health insurance for citizens who earn less than 138 percent of the poverty level. This is a big issue for our state. Florida foregoes $18 million a day by not accepting the federal governments Medicaid money. These funds go to the 27 states that are accepting the funds. NCH will be among those actively raising this issue with our representatives in Tallahassee in the upcoming legislative session. Health-care costs will continue to become more competitive Healthcares annual growth rate fell last year to the lowest level since the federal government began keeping track. This is due to multiple reasons including higher deductible insurance making people better shoppers, the financiallystressful recession and more efficient, evidenced-based care provided by physicians, hospitals and everyone else. Payment for health care is not going to increase an unwelcome reality for health-care businesses, which were accustomed to rising reimbursements for decades. The new normal will be a much more competitive environment with price shopping, consumerism and new alternatives for obtaining care, including small clinics in retail stores. Hospital-acquired conditions will continue to fall as we standardize care, share best practices and benchmark with the best Hospital-acquired conditions have fallen by 17 percent since 2012. In this context, NCH has built a stellar reputation in certain areas such as openheart surgery, information technology (with our Smart Rooms), and avoidance of infections. Safety and quality will remain an important focus for us. Improving our processes so our outcomes are better has been and continues to be high priority. Maintaining our A rating with Leapfrog for safety is paramount. Relationships with payers, namely insurance companies, will mature as networks narrow and value defined as quality divided by cost becomes more important With increased transparency, everyone from individual patients to huge insurance companies will be able to objectively shop for value. Those with the highest value will do well, and the others will suffer. We are seeing that already as about 20 percent of healthcare systems are doing well and 80 percent either consolidating or, sadly, closing. Population health in our region will become more important, as the Blue Zones Project begins Healthcare mindsets will change over the coming decade, as the approximately 80 percent of well people become more active in staying healthy. As to the other 20 percent, we will improve disease screening so we can diagnose earlier and achieve better outcomes. One prediction is certain: It will be another interesting and challenging year in health care. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare Sytesm.

Given existing guidelines cautioning health providers about benzodiazepine use among older adults, findings from the National Institutes of Health-funded study raise questions about why so many prescriptions many for long-term use are being written for this age group. The study found that among all adults 18 to 80 years old, about 1 in 20 received a benzodiazepine prescription in 2008, the period covered by the study. But this fraction rose substantially with age, from 2.6 percent among those 18 to 35, to 8.7 percent in those 65 to 80, the oldest group studied. Long-term use a supply of the medication for more than 120 days also increased markedly with age. Of people 65 to 80 who used benzodiazepines, 31.4 percent received prescriptions for long-term use, vs. 14.7 percent of users 18 to 35. In all age groups, women were about twice as likely as men to receive benzodiazepines. Among women 65 to 80 years old, 1 in 10 was prescribed one of these medications, with almost a third of those receiving long-term prescriptions. These new data reveal worrisome patterns in the prescribing of benzodiazepines for older adults, and women in particular, said Thomas Insel, M.D., director of the National Institute of Mental Health, which supported the study. This analysis suggests that prescriptions for benzodiazepines in older Americans exceed what research suggests is appropriate and safe. Benzodiazepines named for their chemical structure are among the most commonly prescribed medications in developed countries. They include alprazolam (Xanax), diazepam (Valium) and lorazepam (Ativan). The most common uses of benzodiazepines are to treat anxiety and sleep problems. While effective for both conditions, the medications have risks, especially when used over long periods. Long-term use can lead to dependence and withdrawal symptoms when discontinued. In older people, research has shown that benzodiazepines can impair cognition, mobility and driving skills, and they increase the risk of falls. Despite the large number of prescriptions in the United States 85 million in 2007 relatively little was known prior to this study about the specifics of benzodiazepine prescribing in the United States relative to other countries. Mark Olfson, M.D., M.P.H., at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University; Marissa King, Ph.D., at Yale University; and Michael Schoenbaum, Ph.D., at NIMH used data from a national prescription database (IMS LifeLink LRx Longitudinal Prescription database) and a national database on medical expenditures collected by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to examine prescription patterns from 2008. These medications can pose real risks, and there are often safer alternatives available, said Dr. Schoenbaum, who was senior author. Among the findings: Use of benzodiazepines increased steadily with age: 5.2 percent of adults 18 to 80 years old received one or more benzodiazepine prescriptions in 2008; 2.6 percent of those 18 to 35, 5.4 percent of those 36 to 50, 7.4 percent of those 51 to 64, and 8.4 percent of those 65 to 80. Overall, about one quarter of prescriptions involve long-acting formulations of benzodiazepines. Most prescriptions for benzodiazepines are written by non-psychiatrists. For adults 18 to 80 years old, about two thirds of prescriptions for long-term use are written by non-psychiatrists; for adults 65 to 80, the figure is nine out of 10. Benzodiazepines are effective in relieving anxiety and take effect more quickly than antidepressant medications often prescribed for anxiety. However, the prevalence of anxiety disorders declines with age. Practice guidelines recommend nonpharmacologic approaches and antidepressants over benzodiazepines as first-line treatment. Rates of insomnia increase with age, but practice guidelines recommend that health care providers consider behavioral interventions as first-line treatment over medication. Neither of these conditions explains the rates of prescribing benzodiazepines for older age groups. The study appears online Dec. 18 in JAMA Psychiatry.

First Hour FREE With Mention of This Ad! BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhen I was a kid, I loved Dr. Dolittle. I had a recording of the music from the 1967 movie, and I would sing along with it: I can walk with the animals, talk with the animals, and they can squeak and squawk and talk to me. As Dr. Dolittle discovered from his wise parrot, Polynesia, most animal languages are a mixture of sound and movement. But Dr. Dolittle notwithstanding, it has been only recently that we have started to look at and understand communication and emotion in animals. At the World Small Animal Veterinary Association conference, which I attended last September, veterinary behaviorist Dr. Kersti Seksel spoke on understanding feline communication. For communication to exist, she says, there must be a sender, a means of sending the message and a receiver. The receiver doesnt have to be present when the message is sent, Dr. Seksel says, but the receiver does have to receive and understand the message. Thats where most issues start. Our cats are sophisticated communicators, despite not being able to speak English. Their vocalizations, for instance, are highly individualized and specific. The sounds they use to communicate with each other, such as those between a mother and her kittens, are different from the vocal commands they issue to people. Owners, the ones who are paying attention, anyway, soon learn to recognize and interpret what their cats are saying. Cats not only have a language they use only with humans, they also use different body language with humans than with other cats, Dr. Seksel says. Body language encompasses the position of the eyes, ears, tail and head, body posture and facial expression. Communication between cats is subtle and quick. It often goes unnoticed by people. Often, owners think cats are getting along, when in reality violence is simmering just beneath the surface. For instance, you might think that one of your cats has merely entered a room. But often, that cat has signaled to the other cat or cats in the room with a twitch of the ear or switch of the tail that he wants something maybe the chair another cat is in or the food bowl hes snacking from and hes in no mood to be trifled with. When the other cat gets up and leaves, in a seemingly casual manner, hes not being nonchalant. Cats leave the presence of aggressive cats very slowly because they dont want to draw attention to themselves, Dr. Seksel says. When feline tension turns into an all-out fight, the combatants dont just kiss and make up. Cats can stay highly aroused for two to seven days afterward, Dr. Seksel says. She recommends separating cats for at least a week after a fight. Scent is another way in which cats communicate, both among themselves and with people. When your cat gives you an affectionate head butt or rubs up against your leg, hes using pheromones secreted from glands in the cheeks, chin and paw pads to mark you as a member of his community. When he scratches, hes leaving pheromonal messages for other cats. Pheromones are an important form of communication between cats. Among other things, pheromones signal reproductive status and social rank and indicate danger. Veterinary hospitals are full of pheromones all the time because cats arent happy to be there, Dr. Seksel says. When you can learn to understand lingua felinica, you are well on your way to earning your cats respect, not to mention heading off behavior problems before they become serious. And in the immortal words of Dr. Dolittle: If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages, think of all the things we could discuss.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 NEWS A27 New photo gallery reveals more local historyIts hard to argue that one of the benefits of being a tourist is the chance to experience unfamiliar traditions. In the early part of the 20th century, Naples was little more than a small fishing village with one big, elegant hotel. The Naples Hotel and its hospitably lush location served the needs of many visitors escaping a cold winter. And while familiar necessities like luxury rooms and meals were expected, visitors often ventured to Naples because of the unexpected pleasantries like fishermens catch of the day, sweet citrus fruits and freshly harvested vegetables. For leisure and entertainment, guests would picnic on the lawn while watching a game of croquet. Others borrowed a set of clubs and played the only golf course in town. Some slipped off their shoes and walked along the shore in search of souvenir shells and others read quietly in the shade. In the evenings, even during Prohibition, nearly every occupant in Naples toasted to the days successes. One of the more popular places for people to gather was on the Naples pier, which according to Naples Historical Society, has been rebuilt or replaced five times due to hurricane or fire damage. The Naples pier has always been a hub of activity, said society CEO Elaine Reed. In the early part of the 20th century, it was where tourists saw their first glimpse of Naples. And not surprisingly, the pier is now a Naples landmark that is on the to-do list of most tourists. Indeed from sun up to sun down, the Naples pier has been a destination that has served many needs for many generations. In fact, before the railway reached Naples, guests could only access the town via boats that docked at the pier. A large boat called the Bon Temps delivered hundreds of tourists and tons of supplies to the Naples pier on a regular basis. The pier also served as a meeting place for local traders where fresh catch was sold off the hook. The Naples Historical Society recently unveiled a new collection of photographs for its second floor gallery and there are several images that feature the Naples pier. One image in particular captures the diversity of the location best. The picture reveals a sign posted on the pier that reads Please Keep Fish Off The Dance Floor. Thanks to a special restricted grant to professionally enlarge and frame some never-seen before images in its photograph archives, the societys secondfloor photo gallery in Historic Palm Cottage now includes 27 newly framed historic images that make the exhibit a must see... again! The new additions express a whole new series that convey tales through photographic evidence, said Naples Historical Society archival manager Rayna Alam. The photo gallery is a popular attraction within Historic Palm Cottage because it conveys the towns historic tales in photographic imagery. Access to the gallery is included in a house tour.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 The divvy is important in equity investingThere are many different ways to sort the universe of the thousands upon thousands of U.S. and foreign stocks. Stocks are classified by industry sector, e.g., health care, auto, energy, utility, technology, etc.; they can be classified by size: small cap, mid cap or large cap. (Cap is the shortened form of stock market capitalization, meaning all shares of corporate stock multiplied by the price of the stock.) Stocks can be classified as domestic or international, by country or by region, i.e., South Asian equities. They can be grouped under an index like the Dow Jones Industrials; S&P 500; Russell 2000 or 4000, etc. Equities can also be sorted by existence of a dividend and whether there is a long standing history of increasing dividends. A dividend (or the divvy) is a payment of cash to shareholders. It is genrally a distribution of a portion of the net profits of a company as the only other way to make a cash distribution is if cash has been generated through the sale of assets (which generated cash) or through borrowing. (Most lenders would frown upon their borrowings being used as cash dividends; lenders want entities that to use their funds to grow assets and income.) Sometimes shareholders can opt to not take a cash distribution and instead can choose to reinvest in the companys stock, a stock reinvestment program. Many investment managers who promote investing in high dividend paying stocks use historical data to prove their point. The Dreyfus Funds website provides excellent research on dividend paying stocks, courtesy of Fayez Sarofims research, Reasons to Consider Dividend-Paying Stocks, May 2014, (which research further cites the graphs of Strategas Research Partners). History has shown that dividends have often been a powerful source of total return in a diversified investment portfolio. For decades, it was an accepted axiom of equity investing that dividends were an important component of total return. Since 1926, dividends have represented over 50 percent of the total market return. Fayez Sarofims data shows the importance of dividends as part of the total return for the S&P 500 from 1930 through 2013. Throughout that period spanning 83 years, dividends have provided approximately half of the S&P 500s total compounded return. Inclusion of 2014, brings the 85 year compounded return of the S&P 500 to 9.6 percent. Many advisers/money managers make a case for investing in dividend paying equities based on: 1) the longterm return for equities being approximately 10 percent and 2) that more than half of such 10 percent return came from dividends. The problem is that history does not necessarily repeat itself in regards to both price appreciation and dividends. In fact for the past 14 years, dividends have played a scant role in the overall return in the S&P 500. Per a stock return calculator, which provides overall compounded returns as well as the dividend compounded portion (provided at the website DQYDJ.net which calculates for any period of time), the mix of appreciation and dividend payment has radically changed in the past 14 years. For the 50 years from 1930 through 1980, the compounded return came 5 percent from dividends and 5.4 percent from price appreciation. Contrast that with the past 14 years (1990 through the present); the mix has changed to 2.2 percent from dividends and the balance of 7.4 percent from price appreciation for a total compounded return of 9.7 percent So what does that all mean? First, it means that when anyone quotes you performance numbers, it is best to dig deeper into those numbers. Poke around. Ask a lot of questions. Think about why the broker has chosen a certain starting date. as 1930 was a lot lower than 1929. Second, remember that an investment that has compounded at 10 percent might sound like smooth sailing, as if it was steadily compounding. In fact, during that compounding period, there were quite a few crashes and burns: 1973, 1987, 2000 and 2008-9. Its best you be prepared for such. No divvy-paying stock escaped the wrath of 2008-2009. Third, it means that as easy as divvy investing sounds or appears at first blush, it will be extremely hard for any manager to prospectively deliver returns that are 50 percent dividends and 50 percent appreciation, as dividends remain relatively low even for many of the socalled heavy dividend payers. One point that Fayez Sarofim makes in his column is well taken: Many of the steady dividend payers that are committed to increasing their dividend are also strong companies, often worthy of investment beyond the dividend attraction.

Mr. Rijo oversees some 1,200 jobs per year including attic insulation, gutters and storm protection, windows and roofing on the southeast and west coasts, including in Lee, Collier, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. Were constantly recruiting new installers to make sure were on top of our business, said Mr. Rijo. We have a lot of contractors that wish to work with us. Once we start testing them by allowing them to do minor services or smaller installations we realize their standards are not up to ours so we try to coach them. The kitchen, cabinet and bath company Cornerstone Builders of SWFL has grown by leaps and bounds for the last four years, said Joann Blankenship, accounting manager. It has responded to a busier market by continuing to hire new employees. But like other construction and home remodeling businesses the company has also struggled to find qualified workers as demand rebounds. We dont have enough people. We just keep hiring, Ms. Blankenship said. We have a lot of really good people but just trying to find new faces is a difficult thing. Those who have come looking for a job as an installer at Eagle Windows & Sliding Glass Doors in Naples often dont have enough experience or training. No ones answering our ads, said Eagle owner Carolyn Kean. Sales climb Total sales for Action Automatic was up 26 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the same time the year before, said CEO George Ebel. Sales were driven especially by residential builders in places like Bonita as well as homeowners, an improving economy and demand for homes in a sunny, clement climate, he said. Its really just the end of the recession and the pent-up demand for housing, I would think. For his part, Mr. Ebel has had no problem finding skilled employees to install garage doors and gates, but I see it coming, he said. It depends on how long this upturn lasts, too. Many contractors across the U.S. saw sales growth during the same period. An online survey by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry of 213 of its members found that about twothirds of remodeling contractors reported higher sales in the fourth quarter. Although sales were down slightly from September, remodelers were optimistic, with 73 percent of them predicting continued growth in the next three months driven by, in order: people needing to do projects that had been postponed, more certainty about the future, economic growth, improving home prices and low interest rates. The last 18 months has been especially strong for SandStar Remodeling and Homes in Punta Gorda, said vice president Larry J. Sandles. 014 was a really, really good year for remodeling. Why? Theres better consumer confidence, and more people updating a second home or buying property they know theyll have to remodel. People are a lot more willing to take the chance and remodel, said Mr. Sandles. With greater sales, designer Bob Stoebenau is planning to open a new showroom for Simply Cabinets in Punta Gorda. His cabinet designs are popular with contractors and homeowners. Weve seen an uptick in everything new home construction, remodels, he said. He works closely with an installer to put in the cabinets he designs, someone with a minimum of 10 to 15 years of experience and, just as important, honesty. He adds, My installer has been looking for a qualified helper and cant find one. General contractor Rob Whitman of Whitman Industries on Marco Island said people are realizing that the market values are fair now. Theyre not so blown up. People say my house is now worth what it should be and they will put an addition on and make it worth even more money. People are just more comfortable spending I think thats what it comes down to. Theyre not holding on to their money right now. Theyre not necessarily buying new, theyre just redoing what they have, said Ms. Blankenship of Cornerstone Builders.Construction jobs rebound Construction employment in Florida grew by 8 percent between November 2013 and 2014, one of the fastest rates in the U.S., showed an analysis of federal data by The Associated General Contractors of America. Floridas rate was a third-place tie with Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin while Utahs 10 percent and North Dakotas 17 were second and first. The unemployment rate for construction workers fell to a seven-year low in the U.S. in 2014, AGC found. With demand surging, 25 percent of U.S. contractors said they turned down some projects over the summer. A press release read in part, (AGC) officials noted that most contractors report they are having a hard time finding qualified workers to fill key positions as demand rebounds. They cautioned that if labor conditions get even tighter, contractors will have to pass on new projects, and possibly delay existing ones, because of a lack of workers. The associations CEO Stephen E. Sandherr said there is a need for more career and technical education programs for future workers. I think its also a stigma thing, a lot of people think if you dont have a college degree youre not going to make it anywhere, said Mr. Stoebenau of Simply Cabinets in Punta Gorda, pointing out that he went to a trade school in Philadelphia. I tried to go back to college three times. I stink at it. While construction employment grew in most parts of the country, the recovery has been uneven. The Tampa-St.Petersburg-Clearwater division, for example, lost 2,500 jobs between November 2013 and 2014, one of four metro areas in Florida that lost jobs; 18 showed growth. Floridas Southwest and Southeast coasts had strong job growth. AGC spokesman Brian Turmail pointed out that the data from the federal government could still be revised either up or down. It is true that Florida in particular has really begun to experience a nice rebound in construction employment during much of the past two years, he said. But demand can vary based on the timing of local construction projects and other economic factors. This is something that isnt unique to Florida. Indeed one of the characteristics of the construction recovery has been how inconsistent it has been.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Good Debt, Bad DebtWe often assume that debt is bad, period. But thats not quite right. After all, debt can permit us to buy a home or go to college but if mismanaged, it can also nearly ruin us. Mortgages represent good debt. Even if you can afford to pay cash, its almost always smart to finance your home, especially at todays low interest rates. In a simplified example, lets say that you have $200,000 available either to invest with or to use to buy a home. If you get a mortgage at 4.5 percent interest, over the course of 30 years, youll end up paying about $365,000 in principal and interest.However, if you invest that $200,000 and (reasonably) expect to earn a longterm average annual return of 7 percent, youll have more than $1.4 million after 30 years of compounded growth. On top of that, theres a good chance your home will end up worth more than you paid for it.Credit cards represent one of the worst kinds of debt, as they charge very high interest rates, ranging from 12 percent to 30 percent or even more. That can lead to debt escalating out of control if youre not careful, so avoid carrying significant balances on credit cards. Used responsibly, though, credit cards can be useful, not only providing convenience for purchases, but also helping build a strong credit rating if you pay your bills on time and dont owe too much. According to myFICO.com, the average high achiever a consumer with a FICO score above 800 carries a balance equivalent to 7 percent of his or her total credit limit, or about $700 for a $10,000 line of credit. If you have excessive high-interest debt, pay it off as soon as possible. Investing and saving make little sense if youre paying 20 percent interest or more on your debts. Credit card debt of $10,000 can cost you $2,000 or more per year in interest alone, and youd need some pretty amazing (and unlikely) returns on your investments to make up for that. Low TestosteroneBack in 1993, I decided to invest some of my retirement money in a company that made testosterone patches. Instead of going up, though, it went down, and I lost half my money. I then followed my brokers advice and invested what was left in Qualcomm and Cisco Systems, and within a few years I had made a lot of money.Warren Buffett is right: Invest in financially solid companies for the long run and watch your money grow and grow and grow. H.S., St. Joseph, MissouriThe Fool Responds: Buffett is indeed right. That said, though, if youd hung on to your original company, youd have done well, too. It was eventually bought by Johnson & Johnson for about $12 billion.Many great companies go through slow periods or downturns. If you still believe in their prospects, its best to hang on. But if youre significantly more confident about another companys prospects, you might do well to sell. A great thing about investing in stocks is that there are many terrific long-term winners, and you need to find and stick with only a few to do well. Investing in DrugsYou might want to invest in biotechnology, but be careful. Its not an easy industry to master, and while some companies eventually skyrocket, many others flame out.One simple way to invest in biotech is the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (Nasdaq: IBB), which is a fund of roughly 150 stocks that has grown by an annual average of almost 15 percent over the past decade.If youre willing to take on more risk for a chance at a bigger reward, consider Celgene (Nasdaq: CELG), which sells the pancreatic cancer drug Abraxane. Many balk at its steep price, but pancreatic cancer is notoriously tough to treat, and its unlikely that doctors or patients will stop using it in the absence of other options.Celgenes product lineup addresses tough-to-treat cancers that currently have limited treatment options. Revlimid, on pace to record sales of $5 billion this year, is the most widely used multiple myeloma drug for relapsing patients. Pomalyst is a third-line multiple myeloma drug that saw its third-quarter sales more than double, year over year. Otezla, recently approved as a treatment for psoriasis, could eclipse the billion-dollar sales mark by 2017.Meanwhile, Celgene is also aggressive in R&D spending, conducting dozens of studies that could move its revenue needle in the future, and it has inked partnership deals on some of emerging biotechnologys most intriguing up-andcoming therapies. (The Motley Fool has recommended Celgene.) I trace my roots back to Kirk Kerkorian s 1967 purchase of Las Vegas Flamingo hotel and casino, followed by his 1969 opening of the International, then the worlds largest hotel, with 1,500 rooms. Today Im a leading global hospitality and gaming company, owning and operating a portfolio of 15 properties, which include Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage. I also have a 51 percent stake in a holding company with casinos in the hot gambling region of Macau, China, and a 50 percent stake in CityCenter, Las Vegas. Most of my casinos are open 24/7. Who am I? (Answer: MGM Resorts International) In Street NameQShould I ask my brokerage to send me my stock certificates so I can store them in my safe, or is it OK for the brokerage to keep them? C.D., Warsaw, IndianaAIts very common for brokerages to hold stock certificates for investors registering the shares in street name. This offers several advantages. For one thing, you dont have to safeguard the documents, and you cant lose them. Also, whenever you want to sell, you dont have to mail them back to the brokerage, which can take several days. You can sell your shares within minutes by contacting your brokerage, whether by phone or online. Learn more about brokerages at broker.fool.com. ***QIs it advisable or inadvisable to use consumer credit counseling organizations to help me get out of debt? K.W., Clyde, TexasAIt can be helpful, but be careful, as some such outfits can rip you off. With a good one, you might have a debt management plan (DMP) created for you, designed to get you out of debt relatively quickly. But these work only if you cooperate, and many debtors drop the ball. Look elsewhere for help, too. Discuss your situation with a trusted banker or mortgage officer, and perhaps consult a bankruptcy lawyer, as well, to learn about your options. Many people are able to pay off their debts without outside help. Learn more about credit card debt and how to get out of it at fool.com/how-toinvest/personal-finance/index.aspx. If you want to investigate counseling organizations, seek a nonprofit one, perhaps via the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC). Call it at 800-388-2227 or visit nfcc.org.

Talis Park Begins Construction Of Sports Complex and South EntryDeveloper Kitson & Partners announced it has begun construction of an approximately three-acre Sports Complex and a south entry gate at Talis Park in North Naples. The Sports Complex will complete the array of amenities Kitson has designed and constructed to support Talis Parks New Fashioned, health-oriented lifestyle that has redefined the Naples country club experience. The south entry gate will provide access to the community via Veterans Memorial Parkway. Both the Sports Complex and the south entry gate are expected to be completed by late fall of this year. The Sports Complex will feature six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts with directionally focused lighting and pavilions for resting between matches, a tennis pro shop and clubhouse with restrooms and a beverage center, four bocce ball courts, a fifty-foot two-lane lap pool, and landscaped areas. An enchanting green space will provide a social gathering and event place reminiscent of the communitys signature Great Lawn located at Talis Parks Grand Piazza. The new entry gate at the south end of Talis Park Drive will include a guard house and a private entry lane for residents. As part of the entry gate project, Kitson will create a memorable approach to the communitys south entrance with significant landscaping enhancements along approximately 1,000-feet of Veterans Memorial Parkway between the south entry gate and Livingston Road. The Sports Complex and south entry gate are the latest enrichments that Kitson has delivered at Talis Park. Construction of Phase II of the Vyne House clubhouse is well underway and on schedule for completion in late November of this year. The 26,470 square feet under air, multi-level Phase II project is being built by Deangelis Diamond Construction, Inc. Talis Parks residents continue to enjoy Fionas Market Caf, the world-class Core Fitness Center, and the Esprit Spa that opened at Vyne House over a year ago. When Phase II is completed, Vyne House will include a total of 32,052 square feet under air and 25,065 square feet of outdoor space. The Phase II site work and infrastructure, including grading and excavation work for the foundation and the installation of water, sewer, and drainage lines, have been completed. Vertical construction is progressing as planned. The building shell is on target for completion by the end of first quarter, 2015 and provide a risen structure offering a sense of the buildings design and scale. The building will be completely dried in before the summer rainy season allowing interior finishing work to be completed without weather related delays. Located adjacent to the Great Lawn at Talis Parks Grand Piazza, Vyne House epitomizes the New Fashioned aesthetic Kitson has introduced at the North Naples community. Rather than offering an expansive clubhouse that is more narr owly f ocused in design and function, Vyne House consists of a series of lifestyle oriented spaces designed to be used every day, inviting users to come as they are in a relaxed, comfortable format. The buildings are interconnected by covered outdoor walkways and wrapped around multiple courtyards that offer the possibility of outdoor dining and entertaining. Phase II will introduce Vyne Court, an open-air courtyard that is the centerpiece of Vyne House. In addition to serving as a point of entry, Vyne Court will be used as a social space perfectly suited to hosting a variety of events. The upper level will also include formal indoor dining, casual indoor and outdoor dining, a multi-purpose room adjacent to Vyne Court, aerobics and cardio workout rooms, and a uniquely designed Wine Room/Board Room. The lower level of Vyne House Phase II will host the golf pro shop as well as the mens and ladies locker rooms. Phase II will also include the completion of a resort style pool with a large pool deck as well as a stately rotunda that will feature an oversized, two-sided fireplace and overlook the 18th green. In addition to the Sports Complex and Vyne House, Talis Parks amenities include its renowned golf course that is one of just two Greg NormanPete Dye designed golf courses in the world. Known for the splendor of its Sea Dwarf Paspalum fairways and greens, the course is consistently ranked among the top twenty golf courses in Florida and was ranked #91 in Golfweeks 2014 Best Residential Courses. The Casa Cortese Grille offers an outdoor dining and lounge experience overlooking a pristine driving range. Kitson recently announced it is offering fourteen choice luxury condominium residences immediately adjacent to Vyne House and the Great Lawn. The new Residences at Vyne House will offer the consummate In the Village lifestyle and put a select group of homeowners literally within steps of every amenity at Vyne House. The Residences at Vyne House will offer a level of fit and finish rarely seen in gated golf course community condominium neighborhoods while fully integrating Talis Parks array of world-class amenities in a maintenance-free lifestyle that includes personalized twenty-four hour concierge services. Talis Parks residential choices range from penthouse style condominiums priced from the $700s to luxurious estate residences starting at $2.5 million. Luxury homebuyers have an opportunity to begin enjoying Talis Parks New Fashioned lifestyle in advance of next Season. Completed and soon-to-becompleted furnished models and unfurnished Resident Ready homes are available in Talis Parks nine distinct neighborhoods. Additional furnished models are poised to begin construction. Talis Park is located in North Naples on Livingston Road just north of Immokalee Road.

When looking at a world population map its interesting to note that the majority of the population is located along bodies of water, whether it be the ocean or inland lakes and rivers. In ancient history, this was likely the result of gathering around a food source but Southwest Floridians know that living by the waters edge is connected more with relaxation and pleasure. Here we present some of the most interesting waterfront properties, from oceanfront jungles like Mel Gibsons Costa Rica compound to a floating condo that travels the length of the Mississippi River to Key Biscayne. Perhaps these waterfront abodes will provide you with some inspiration for your own home here in the subtropics. A Costa Rica jungle hideawayMel Gibsons compound includes three homes with each of the smaller single-story homes having two bedrooms, vaulted ceilings, kitchens, verandas and their own swimming pools.

It was refreshing, because it was very different.

We thought that she personifies what were about, said TheatreZones artistic director Mark Danni. Shes identified with Broadway and TheatreZone is identified with musicals. We are the musical theater.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Single woman seeking handyman One month ago, on the closing date for my first house, I sat in the conference room of a downtown Fort Myers law office alone on my side of the table. On the other side, the seller, a woman going through a divorce whose ex-husband had already left town, smiled kindly at me. Look at us, she said. Two women doing this alone. I smiled back. I was terrified. And proud. I remember when a friend bought a house a few years ago and posted a photo of her new place with the caption Homeownership: I got this. All through the closing, I kept thinking the same thing: I got this. But less than a week after moving into my new home, I had the sinking feeling that I dont got this as much as I thought. It started with the lawn. Turns out, it needs to be mowed. No problem, I thought. Ill just put an ad on craigslist. Seeking someone to mow my lawn. Once a week. Must have own lawnmower. The more I thought about it, though, the more I realized I needed other services someone to paint the railing around my patio, to fix the squeaking fan in my bedroom, to pick up an antique table and so my craigslist ad started to expand. Seeking someone to mow my lawn and haul furniture. Must be handy with a paintbrush and good at electrical. Bring your own truck. As I mentally tallied all the activities on my home improvement list, I saw that this was going to cost me a fortune. How was I ever going to afford all the things I needed done? Driving with my mother last week, I asked if she knew the name of a reputable handyman, someone who could tackle my list without charging a ransom. Well, she said matter-of-factly, those are the sorts of things husbands do. Husbands? I asked, offended. Isnt the whole point that Im doing this on my own? But when I realized later what she meant, I had to laugh. Of course, I thought. Most women were paying their personal handymen the exchange just wasnt in cash. For all those items on the honey-do list, they were trading home-cooked meals, back massages and Lord only knows what else. Which meant I just needed to tweak my craigslist ad. Single woman seeking man with pickup truck to mow lawn, move furniture, and perform other small jobs around the house. In exchange: meatloaf and mashed potatoes, the promise to take your side in every argument and Saturday night foot rubs. I sat in my office chair and reread this latest version, tapping my teeth thoughtfully with a pen. The ad captured the spirit of the thing, that was true, but it felt somehow disingenuous. Searching for the solution, I pulled up the craigslist site and scrolled through the jobs categories. And then it hit me: This wasnt an employment ad at all. It was much more, shall we say, personal. Instead of sticking it with the other for-hire announcements, I knew where it belonged: in the women-seeking-men section. After all, who was I trying to kid?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 It wasnt another one of those Top 40 club-type songs. Being a professional bassist, she felt an instant affinity to the song. I didnt really understand at first that bass was another way to talk about booty, she confesses. I didnt think it through. I was taking it literally. How could I not? She and her friend, pianist and arranger Scott Bradlee, got together and made a video of the hit, calling it All About That (Upright) Bass. They released it online as part of his Postmodern Jukebox series in which current hit songs are reinterpreted as jazz, ragtime and swing. On their version, Ms. Davis sings while accompanying herself on the upright bass. They slow down the song and give it a 1940s jazz feel, at times big and brassy and at other points downright sultry. That YouTube video went viral, garnering well over 9 million views in four months time, creating instant fans and comments such as: Gorgeous groove, jazzy, snazzy beautiful music, and what an intoxicating voice, and, Every once in a while, in this sometimes jaded world, you happen upon something that makes you honestly happy. This video is one of those Mr. Bradlee even writes, Get to know her, because shes going to be a star. I feel lucky it worked out that way, Ms. Davis says, noting that there are very few avenues available to get a song out to millions of people. People get their songs put in movies or TV shows, but there are not a lot of other outlets (to reach that many people.) Her concerts are a mixture of Great American Songbook standards (Just One of Those Things, September in the Rain, Tea For Two), her own interpretation of modern songs (Beyonces Crazy in Love, Soundgardens Black Hole Sun, Rufus Wainwrights Leaving for Paris) and her own compositions. Shes performed at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, The Blue Note, The Knitting Factory and various venues around the country. Later this year, shell perform at the Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston, South Carolina. In 2010 she created a buzz at the Ringling International Arts Festival in Sarasota, quickly selling out all her concerts there. She was still a teenager at the time, attending the Manhattan School of Music. More recently, in 2013, she performed at the Kentucky Derby party at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers. Arts philanthropist Berne Davis (no relation) was so impressed she requested the bassist return to perform for her 100th birthday last March. Kate Davis is now scheduled to give a concert at the Art Center with her trio at 8 p.m. Jan. 17. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Jim Griffith, CEO of the Art Center, first met Ms. Davis when he gave a lecture at her school. He invited her to come down to Fort Myers to perform. Ms. Davis is taking New York City and the entire country by storm with her unique voice and musical style, he says. I saw she just performed with Wynton Marsalis at Dizzys Coca Cola Club in New York City this New Years Eve. I think her career is doing just fine and I cant wait to bring (her) back to Fort Myers again and again. Her affinity for the old standards is genuine, as is her love of the stand-up bass. Though 23, she loves performers such as Doris Day and Louis Prima. Ms. Davis grew up playing classical music, studying violin from the age of 5, with piano lessons beginning the year after. For a while, she thought shed be a classical musician. But her life changed when she attended a concert at the high school she was about to enter. She saw a girl playing violin in the orchestra who then played bass in a jazz band. She did both very well, Ms. Davis recalls. It was inspiring to see her totally change shapes. I figured she was a girl, she must get a lot of attention from the boys. After that, I decided itd be cool to learn upright bass. She started taking lessons and playing sessions in some jazz groups around Portland, Ore. Though shed grown up playing the violin, learning the stand-up bass presented a new set of challenges. It was a struggle, she says. The physical aspect of that instrument was tough, the strength it takes to pull a string and play loud. Its a completely different instrument. I went through a lot of different rings of fire to get to a point where I could even play well. Not only is it difficult to play, but its also difficult to handle. At just under six feet tall, the instrument isnt as easy to transport as, say, a flute or even a violin. It looms over Ms. Davis, who is 5-foot4. Its heavy, but its hollow, so its not as heavy as you might think, she says. Whats really hard is the strange shape, trying to work your way around the curves. Its tall and bulky. While its like any other instrument in the string family, theres something really special about the rawness of this sound that you can make yourself, and how the strings will vibrate and create just a very pure, powerful sound that comes out this box and the f-holes. Its kind of like magic. Its making something from nothing. And theres nothing electronic about it. And because she has to embrace the upright bass to play it, its a visceral experience. You feel the deep notes in your body, she says. While shes played keyboards and electric instruments, the bass is a completely different instrument and sound. I found theres not a lot that can hold a candle to natural acoustic sound. It sounds best in a small, acoustically ideal hall, and it can resonate and be beautiful. You cant get any better than the acoustic sound. She was introduced to jazz music through the upright bass, and immediately felt drawn to many of the Great American Songbook performers she says, listing Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Frank Sinatra. I was drawn by the integrity of the songs of that era, the quality of the emotional content of the music, and how one can find the right word for the right individual note, she says. All these things come together and they really stay with you. I heard it for what it was, and fell in love with it. Those songs have inspired her to write her own. Though she took theory and arrangement classes in school, I never took any songwriting course, and was never formally taught in composition, she says. She also didnt have any professional vocal training. Her pure, unique style of singing has been compared to everyone from Edie Brickell to Norah Jones to Diana Krall. As a young artist, she continues to evolve, and is focusing on writing her own songs. Featured on an August NPR episode of Song Travels hosted by Michael Feinstein, she performed Tea for Two, but mostly her own compositions, including the haunting Only Growing Old, the rollicking Every Good Girl is a Unicorn and Movie, which won the ASCAP Robert Allen Award in 2012. She put out an EP of four of her songs in late 2014, called Sessions I, because she wanted her new fans, generated by the YouTube video, to have something to listen to. She did release a few albums in her teens but no longer sells them, as she feels theyre not representative of the work shes doing now. (They sell for $100 or more online.) She plans to release more songs soon. Surprisingly, with all the buzz about her, shes not signed to a label yet. But its definitely a goal. Im looking into those kind of things now, she says. Shes focusing too, on being known as a singer/songwriter. She admires performers such as the late Jeff Buckley, James Blake, Sufjan Stevens and Blake Mills. What I hope to do is a mixture, to be able to do covers of old songs and new songs, and definitely incorporate American Songbook songs, she says. Its a challenge to keep everything feeling like its all part of the same project, and there are certain (fans) who will gravitate toward certain sounds. At the end of the day I would ultimately like to be playing mostly my own music. Id like to write more songs, better songs, establish myself as a writer instead of All About That Bass. It wont be just about the bass and about the old music entirely, that I can just be Kate. KATEFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOKate Davis performs at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in 2013.

Ive heard several people saying theyre bringing their grandkids and Ive heard college people saying they cant believe shes coming here.

Mr. Danni met Ms. McArdle in 1996 when she played Eponine in a 1996 Philadelphia production of Les Miserable and he was an assistant conductor. The two have continued to work together at TheatreZone, including McArdles stint as Eva Peron in TheatreZones 2008 production of Evita.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 Naples Finest French CuisinePrivate Parties & Catering Available upon Request facebook.com/ConservancySWF pinterest.com/Conservancy ARTS COMMENTARYOne Slight Hitch not quite a love match at Fla RepCourneys getting hitched. She never considered herself the marrying type, but on this summer day in 1981, shes marrying Harper, an uptight, obsessively polite, clean-cut Republican. Courneys on the rebound from Ryan who just happens to show up, not knowing its her wedding day. Her dad, who likes the guy, and her two sisters, try to keep Ryans presence a secret from Courtney and her mom. And thats the premise of One Slight Hitch, enjoying its Florida premiere at Florida Repertory Theatre (though Jan. 28). The plays written by stand-up comedian Lewis Black, known for his rants and working himself into a frenzy. In contrast, his play is surprisingly conventional, sprinkled with occasional oneline gems. The tension is slow to build, and I never felt a sense of urgency about their dilemma. The play itself is somewhat of a puzzle: its not really a farce, even though one persons trying to hide from others and there are a few slamming doors. But the pace isnt manic enough for a farce. Its more of a romantic comedy Lite. Act I lags, and the big payoff youd expect in Act II never really comes. One Slight Hitch is also oddly structured. Were first introduced to P.B. Coleman (Courtney Feiman) who talks to the audience about her sisters wedding day three decades ago. Shes an almostobnoxiously bubbly teen who listens to her Walkman incessantly. Every time she does so, the audience gets to hear what shes listening to: hits of that era, such as Bette Davis Eyes and Jessies Girl. But P.B. is not the focus of the play. And even the role of the bride herself (Rachel Moulton) is insipidly written. I didnt really care if she finds out her exboyfriends there or if her wedding day is ruined. Middle sister Melanie (a wise-cracking Georgia Mallory Guy) livens up the action when she comes home. (Shes a nurse, but her costume makes her seem as if shes dressed as a slutty one for Halloween.) Her comments and antics give Act I a much-needed shot in the arm. But this play about a brides wedding day really belongs to Doc (Martin LaPlatney), the father of the bride. Both he and his wife Delia (Carrie Lund, playing yet another mother-ofthe-bride role) get big laughs on first appearance. But its Mr. LaPlatney as the hapless, befuddled father, who runs away with the show. Its easier to deal with men when you realize that most of us are born to fail, he says early in the play. Its easy to see him as the stand-in for Mr. Black in this comedy. Mr. LaPlatney is at his comedic best when he pastes on a false grin to deal with visiting in-laws. (Though I did note that when interacting with women, he has a tendency to lean forward, hands on thighs, as if speaking to a little girl. It was a tick I found increasingly annoying, as it seems condescending.) Ms. Lund has her moments too. She is the queen of droll and at times had the audience eating out of her hand with merely a line, a word or even just a look. She was especially funny melting down the staircase on rubber legs after taking a pill to relax. It wouldve been great comedic fodder if she continued to be so sloppily relaxed, but somehow, she sobers up enough to deliver a long dramatic monologue about marriage, and what it means to the Greatest Generation. (In fact, many characters in this play down enormous amounts of liquor, but it seems to have no lasting effects.) Director Chris Clavelli and his cast do their best with the material. And the opening night audience really seemed to enjoy it. Mr. Black said in a June 2012 New Yorker interview that he was inspired to write the play after a longtime girlfriend broke up with him. Shed always said shed never get married, but soon after leaving Mr. Black, married someone else. Mr. Blacks friends, who attended the wedding told him that her family kept talking about him, saying it shouldve been him at the altar instead. He used this experience as the inspiration for One Slight Hitch, working on the play off-and-on over a 30-year period. I thought this one would finally establish me as a writer, he told the magazine. Mr. Blacks known for his politically based, cutting-edge humor. But none of that edginess is reflected in his play. There is some political humor, but the opening night audience didnt laugh at it, seeming to take it all at face value. The play opens with an audio clip of Ronald Reagans presidential acceptance speech. And P.B., who declares herself a Republican, says: Oh, how I miss the simple life of the 1980s. I yearn for the s, the sheer joy of knowing so little. The comfort it gave. Back then there was a normalcy in the air. Im a Republican, so normal is real important to me. I like rules I need orderliness in my life. I am much happier when things are black and white. Grey doesnt suit me. Mr. Clavelli has the actress deliver the lines as a 16-year-old, not as a mature woman looking back over the decades. Perhaps it wouldve been more effective if she spoke as an adult, then gradually transformed into the teen she was in 1981. Neither Harper, the fianc (Sid Solomon), nor Ryan, the ex-boyfriend (Nate Washburn), seem much of a prize. Theyre polar opposites, representing two extremes, but underneath the skin, theyre very alike: self-obsessed and full of their own self-importance. I had high expectations for One Slight Hitch, but found it uneven. It does possess some great lines and physical humor thatll make you laugh out loud If only those laughs were more consistent, the material a little sharper.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 C13 BEACH READINGSharon Tate: Recollection By Debra Tate, with a foreword by Roman Polanski (Running Press, $30)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXBritish actress Deborah Kerr said that Sharon Tate had real talent and predicted she would become a big star. Oscar-winner Yul Brynner recalled that Sharon had a fragile, incandescent quality that brought oxygen into the room. Patty Duke, Tates co-star in Valley of the Dolls, remembered that being in Sharons presence was like being enveloped in grace. Her inner beauty superseded her outer beauty, if you can imagine. Once in a while she would catch me staring at her in awe. Life is full of questions about what might have been. No one knows what the 26-yearold actress, model and sex symbol eventually could have achieved if she had not been brutally murdered by members of the Charles Manson family one hot summer night in August 1969. Debra Tate was just 16 when her famous sister and the unborn child she was carrying were slaughtered in the Beverly Hills home Sharon shared with director Roman Polanski. Also killed were three friends: Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger and Wojciech Frykowsky. Debra, who is based in Southern California and has spent most of her life advocating for victims rights and counseling victims of violent crimes, has compiled a remarkable book documenting Sharons life and career. Hundreds of images, some never before published, from the Tate private collection, are featured in the coffee-table book, along with quotes and essays from those who worked with her and knew her best. As Mr. Polanski points out in his foreword, The book is a tribute to Sharon, to her beauty, to her spirit, to her talent, to the pleasure her presence gave to everyone who knew her. He adds that it is, of course, impossible to imagine what might have been if Sharon had lived. Indeed.

FILM CAPSULESInherent Vice 1/2(Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson) In 1970s L.A., a detective (Phoenix) investigates the disappearance of an ex-girlfriend whom he believes was in the middle of a nefarious extortion scheme. Tangents build on tangents, to the point that it moves in every direction but forward. Its neither funny nor dramatic, just a total misfire. Rated R.Selma(David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson) In 1965 Alabama, Dr. Martin Luther King (Oyelowo) fights with local leaders, police, and President Lyndon Johnson (Wilkinson) to secure voting rights for minorities. The story is tedious at times, but Oyelowos performance as King is stellar. Rated PG-13.Unbroken (Jack OConnell, Domhnall Gleeson, Miyavi) After crashing in the Pacific during WWII, Louis Zamperini (OConnell) survives for 47 days on a lifeboat before being taken to a Japanese POW camp. Its an inspiring story about the power of sheer will and determination, flawlessly directed by Angelina Jolie. Rated PG-13.The Gambler(Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, John Goodman) A literature professor (Wahlberg) gets into serious gambling debt and doesnt seem to care if he can find a way out. Mr. Wahlberg gives an unexpectedly layered performance in this taut drama that has a few surprises up its sleeve. Rated R.The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage) With dragon Smaug (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch) out of the way, Bilbo (Freeman), Thorin (Armitage) and the men of Lake Town protect the Lonely Mountain from Orcs and Goblins. The opening is an absolute thrill and theres enough spectacle throughout to keep it entertaining. Rated PG-13.Top Five 1/2(Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union) A comedian (Rock) spends time with a reporter (Dawson) to promote his latest film as his marriage to a reality TV star (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 (Meester) and Paige (Jacobs) fail to connect after Paige starts dating Tim (Brody). The dramedy has unexpected depth along with its humor, and as a result this is an enjoyable watch. Rated R.

He served four tours of duty in the Middle East, had more than 160 confirmed kills, was called Legend by his fellow soldiers, and was an emotionally distant husband and father while actively enlisted. Kyles story is inherently fascinating. Clint Eastwoods telling of it in American Sniper is not. Even with the above and more to work with, Mr. Eastwoods final product registers as a mundane bore that has the life sucked out of it from the get-go. The first deflating moment comes when we see Chris (Bradley Cooper) on a lookout post in Fallujah targeting a woman and child whore potentially carrying explosive devices. Before the moment pays off theres a flashback to scenes of him learning how to shoot, bull riding, his girlfriend cheating on him, bonding with his brother, Navy SEAL training that offers nothing new, and meeting his future wife Taya (Sienna Miller). On their wedding day, his unit learns its going to the Middle East. Only then, roughly a half hour into the film, do we return to Chris on the lookout targeting the woman and child. Writer Jason Hall, working from Kyles book American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History, seems to be marking off a checklist of war movie clichs. For the opening half hour to be effective all those details need to collectively feed into Kyle at the lookout, but the segment is so crammed with unnecessary details that its too scattered for its own good. As a result when we get back to the lookout weve forgotten about it, and all the suspense is lost. Remember: Just because its factual doesnt mean it should be in the movie. It is Eastwood and Halls duty to provide an entertaining story, not worry about getting things right. If Taya Kyle wanted a more fact-based biographical film that would be accurate, she shouldve sold the story rights to a documentarian. More alarmingly, Chris most interesting trait his shooting ability is given precious little insight. One would think a film about the deadliest sniper in U.S. history would take us inside his head to see how he views his targets. Not from the scope on his rifle, but from the thought process he goes through when spotting a target, focusing on the subject and deciding to fire. But Chris is kept at a distance, and Mr. Eastwood misses the chance to use the medium of film effectively to tell Chris story. Part of this could be because Chris kept himself at a distance. Between tours he returned home to Taya and their children but wasnt mentally and emotionally there, which provides a brief glimpse of his home life but is over too quickly to really register. His need to focus and not quit and be in the action is well documented, so none of the content of him at home in Texas feels necessary. If youre going to make a movie that glorifies a great soldier, do it. Dont waste time with him as a terrible father and husband. And when you are glorifying him as a soldier, do so with focus and style. Mr. Eastwood saps the inherent curiosity from Kyles exploits by using muted colors and allowing scenes to run far longer than they should. Although theres a rival sniper named Mustafa (Sammy Sheik) that Chris is trying to catch (the rivalry between Chris and Mustafa wouldve been an interesting subplot to develop more), the story is episodic and lacks a clear narrative arc. The Exploits of an American Sniper might have made for a nice television series in which Chris goes on one mission after the next, but it doesnt play well in a 134-minute movie. Clint Eastwood was handed two prime properties in 2014 (remember Jersey Girl? Didnt think so.), and the results have been underwhelming. The truth is there arent many directors wed rather have working on American Sniper. They cant all be Oscar winners, right? >> Potential spoiler: Chris Kyle was shot and killed in Texas in February 2013 by an American veteran he was trying to help. t f b r t l dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com m th e e flatw hen d le y k out g et h i ld c arc es. a ys k to i n g i da tn g vy a t n d f e ) y ngtotheMiddleEast. th e co nt e n t of h im n to ri it h i an r i fy so Mr i n h K y l mu t sc en th an th er Mu s t h at ( the an d M an i

Brought to you in part by like us on facebook FLORIDA WRITERSFDA approval process generates sizzling medical thriller After the Fall by Patricia Gussin. Oceanview Publishing. 378 pages. Hardcover $26.95. This fourth Laura Nelson thriller is a page-turner par excellence. An accidental fall leaves Laura in great pain. Her smashed hand cannot be reconstructed sufficiently for her to continue performing surgery. The title phrase, however, has other echoes like a fall from grace or esteem. Such a fall is something that Laura fears when confronted with the need to reveal or have revealed by others painful secrets from her past. Having done research on a new drug and spoken on its behalf before an FDA Advisory Committee, Laura is sharing the expectation that Immunone will soon be approved and be in production by Keystone Pharma. Keystone had gained control of the drug, a major anti-rejection advance for organ transplant patients, by investing in Replica, a much smaller company that had developed Immunone under the leadership of its prime researcher, a beautiful Iraqi scientist named Adawia (Addie) Abdul. The sooner Immunone is approved, the sooner Addie can receive a contracted payment of $7.5 million and rush off to Iraq where she will comfort her ailing father and perhaps take over his work as chief scientist for Iraqs chemical weapons program. Addie, quite Americanized after a dozen or so years in the U. S. as a graduate student and research scientist, is reluctant to go, but sees no alternative. Someone else very much wants her to stay. Jake Harter, the FDA project manager for the Immunone case, is smitten with Addie, sick of his failed marriage, and frustrated by being undervalued by the medical professionals and administrators. To keep Addie around, he makes a false claim about incomplete documentation that will delay the drugs final approval and the payoff to Addie. This ex-Marine is a sociopath who murders his wife (divorce might be difficult and drawn out); runs down Dr. Minn, a skilled advocate for the drugs approved; and courts Addie assiduously.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 15-21, 2015 C17 for research effective upon his imminent retirement. With Minn killed in the horrible hit and run, the company needs Laura immediately to accomplish the drugs final approval. On the same night as Minns death, Laura takes that terrible fall in icy Philadelphia, her hand shattered beyond functional reconstruction. With her career as a Tampa surgeon cut short, she accepts the Keystone Pharma position. One more piece: Laura has been a widow for many years. Her old friend and constant admirer, Dr. Tim Robinson, has now come forcefully into her life and proposed marriage. Laura hesitates. As she thinks about how to prepare herself and her five children for such a change, she realizes that she needs to come clean about certain past deeds. She moves in with Tim in his City Center Philadelphia home. The narrative unfolds at a rapid pace, with scenes alternating from one character to another, deepening our understanding of each and complicating the pos sible outc omes while accelerating suspense. Our main focal points are Laura, Addie, and Jake. As Laura provide evidence that all of the missing documentation had been provided and was still available for FDA approval of Immunone, Jakes power play somewhat irrational in the first place begins to fall apart, causing him to define Laura as an enemy who has to be eliminated. His hostility towards Laura grows when he sees that she and Addie are becoming friends. The stakes grow higher and higher for each character, though only two of them have the readers sympathy. The geography of After the Fall embraces the Philadelphia area where Tim works and Keystone Alpha is located, and Washington, D.C., and its northwest suburbs; the FDA offices and Jakes home are in Rockville, Maryland. Ms. Gussin handles her specific settings and the characters movements among them with crisp, clean descriptive strokes. Lauras conflicts are more inner than outer. She needs to bring long-buried misdeeds into the open to have an honest relationship with Tim and with her children especially her youngest. She is juggling the timetable of revelation, fearing a possible confrontation with someone who seems to know about her deepest, darkest secret. In the end, readers will have nothing but admiration for Dr. Laura Nelson. That means, of course, that Dr. Patricia Gussin has done it again: provided a thoroughly satisfying formula of character, action, science, emotion, and danger. 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.

In general, a defender covers when his side may gain a trick by doing so, and does not cover when it might cost him a trick to do so. Consider this deal where East wins the opening spade lead with the king and returns the five to dummys ace. Declarer leads the ten of clubs from dummy, and the question is whether East should cover with the king. In the given situation, he should. Observe what happens when he doesnt. The ten wins, and a club continuation gives South four club tricks and the contract. But if East plays the king on the ten, South makes only three club tricks and goes down one, since Wests nine becomes a stopper in the suit. East has nothing to lose by covering, but stands to gain, depending on declarers club holding. If, for example, South has A-Q-93, A-J-8-3, Q-J-8-3 or his actual holding, the failure to cover costs a trick, while covering gains a trick. Declarer can sometimes foil the defense by not leading an honor in the first place. Thus, in the present case, once South appreciates the futility of leading the ten because East will play the king if he has it, he should lead the deuce instead. When the queen wins, South returns to dummy with a heart and again leads a low club (not the ten). As it happens, East is obliged to play the king, and Souths worries are over, since he brings ho me four club tricks and the contract. Real. Italian.Locally Owned and Operated. 24041 S.

CELEBRITY EXTRAMurder mystery thriller returning to ABC BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Ive been dying to know whats going to happen next on How to Get Away With Murder! When will it be back? Kristin H., via emailA: You dont have much longer to wait. Beginning at 10 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29, the hit ABC murder-mystery will be back for the final six episodes of the season. Now that we know who killed Sam, will we also discover who killed Lila? I spoke with Charlie Weber, who plays Frank Delfino, and he gave me a few tiny hints as to what we can expect. The Keating Five are having to deal with the moral complications of covering up the death of Sam, and having done it in the first place. Theyre all in on it now. As we move forward, Weber told me: The whole thing busts wide open. Information will be coming out about both murders (Sam and Lila), and theres going to be a lot of scrambling to deal with it by everyone. And not that the show isnt crazy and exciting enough already, but it gets more so. There are plenty of twists and turns coming, I can assure you of that. Q: Can you tell me when Game of Thrones will be back for a new season? Bobby T., via emailA: The phenomenal drama/historicalfantasy series will be back for its fifth season sometime in April (an exact date has not yet been announced) on HBO. However, you can relive some of season four on the big screen in IMAX format before that. In limited release (about 150 IMAX theaters) beginning Jan. 23, the last two episodes of season fours Game of Thrones will be shown the way lots of fans think it should be aired all the time in movie theaters. Those who do attend these limited showings also will be treated to an exclusive trailer for season five. Check your local listings to see if it will be on the big screen in your town. Q: My husband recently introduced me to the Evil Dead movies. He heard they are making it into a TV series. Is that true? Nancy P. in IndianaA: Yes. Starz is bringing the series to the small screen via an original series called Ash vs. Evil Dead, which takes place after the action of the movie series. The series star and the director of Evil Dead Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi, respectively are set to return to the production, which will consist of 10 half-hour episodes.

The Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Monday, closed Tuesday The Full Menu: noodlesaigon.com The Details: Sometimes it can be difficult to find a dish that perfectly executes that elusive, savory characteristic known as umami. Described by culinary experts as the fifth taste, it is most often ascribed to dishes that feature Asian condiments like soy or fish sauce. To me it just means a round, meaty flavor that Noodle Saigons rare beef pho perfectly captures. I chose the large serving and I was served what honestly seemed like a half-gallon of steaming broth that was brimming with rice noodles, slivers of onion, cilantro, green onion and thinly sliced beef. On the side came a plate piled high with basil stems, bean sprouts and a lime wedge, all of which I slid gracelessly into the bowl. The menu suggested I finish off with a dollop of hoisin sauce and sriracha, so I followed its advice and gave each a squirt into the broth. What followed was a rich and filling soup that would be difficult to replicate at home and a Vietnamese specialty that is difficult to come by in Naples. One More Thing: The large serving is soup is a huge helping and would be a selection to share or take home. I naively ordered it thinking a small portion would most likely only be a cup of soup, so I ended up taking a lot of it home to share with family.

Soup lovers can watch this process in action from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 24, at the annual Naples Empty Bowls event at Cambier Park. For a $15 donation, guests can select a beautiful, handmade bowl and fill it with soup from one of dozens of local restaurants. Participating restaurants include Bleu Provence serving potato leek soup, Danielas serving Hungarian goulash and Worthington Country Club serving Camembert mushroom soup. There are too many restaurants providing too many delicious selections to name here, but hopefully weve given you the flavor of the event. Guests can also participate in a silent auction, watch pottery demonstrations and paint some bowls. All proceeds will go directly to the Harry Chapin Food Bank to feed children, families, seniors and other community members. Last year, the Naples event raised $60,000 for the organization, which enabled it to provide $360,000 in food and grocery items to the hungry. For more information, call 3347007 or visit harrychapinfoodbank. org.Next up: German FestFood festivals abound during tourist season.

Unlike chardonnay, which will grow just about anywhere you stick it in the ground, pinot thrives only in a narrow range of soil and climate conditions. The grapes themselves are very small, so it takes more of them to make a bottle of wine. If wine grapes can get any disease or malady at all, pinot grapes will catch it first. And as if these reasons are not discouraging enough, the varietal is known to actually mutate on the vine, so what you plant may not be what you harvest. But theres an upside. Of all grapes, pinot noir is capable of being turned into wines that are surpassingly elegant, silky and seductive. Which is why a pinot such as Frances Domaine de la Romane Conti sells for upwards of $3,500 a bottle, if you can find it. (A double magnum of the 1996 vintage can be yours for a mere $69,995). So pinot is an attractive challenge for the winemaker, who, if successful, can create a truly spectacular wine that can be sold for large dollars. So if pinot noir grows well in only very limited areas, where are they? The first, of course, is the Burgundy region in France. Over there, they grow only two grapes: chardonnay and pinot noir, and they are mostly spectacular. They are also supremely difficult to understand, because the Burgundy region is divided up into miniscule subregions, each of which has its own name, character and winemaking traditions. On the other hand, reasonably-priced wines are available, if you choose from some of the lesser-known areas, such as the Macon region and Vire Clesse. Here in the U.S., pinot lovers turn to Oregon and California. The most familiar area in Oregon is the Willamette Valley though dont be afraid to sample from the Umpqua and Rogue Valleys as well. Just as Robert Mondavi put California wines on the world stage, David Lett did the same for the wines of Oregon. In 1979, at an international wine tasting competition, his Eyrie Vineyard pinot noir came in third among 600 wines, beating out a whole lineup of legendary and obscenely expensive Burgundies. It was like the American Olympic hockey team defeating the Russians in 1980. Or the 1968 New York Mets. The French went, bananas, or bananes, the way they say it. They exclaimed, Sacre bleu! Cest imposible! or words to that effect. They absolutely could not accept that an American wine could compare so favorably to the best of Burgundy. So they demanded a rematch. A second blind tasting competition was held the next year, staged by Robert Drouhin, one of the most legendary figures in Burgundian winemaking. Eyrie Vineyard pinot noir did not come in third. It came in second. Robert Drouhin immediately went to Oregon and bought as many vineyards as he could get his hands on. Pinots tend to be extremely variable in quality and style, so select your wines by producer. Sample widely (of course), find a few producers you like, and stick with them. My favorites include: Domaine Serene Ken and Grace Evenstad, who spend a lot of time here in Southwest Florida, make incredible pinots and chardonnays from several vineyards. Their wines run in the $55-$60 range, and are uniformly excellent. Beaux Freres This vineyard is owned by wine critic Robert Parker and his brother. Mr. Parker is arguably the most influential wine critic on the planet, so his wines have to support his reputation. The wines are usually in the $50 range, so its a bit of a splurge. Pali Wine Company These wines are available locally, and theyre a bargain. The reasonably-priced Pali Pinot Noir Riviera fits the bill nicely, with aromas and flavors of cherry, blackberry and cranberry, and a very smooth mouthfeel. Find it in local stores or visit paliwineco.com. Mark West Possibly the best bargainpriced Oregon pinot on the market. Incredibly, its under $10 a bottle, and very drinkable. Questions? Comments?

CHEF PROFILEChef takes sushi and Thai cuisine beyond the usual offeringsIt didn't take long for lovers of Thai cuisine and well-crafted sushi to find Jon and On Augsondthung's first restaurant, Fuji, 5 years ago when it opened in a little shopping center across from the Hollywood 20 theaters. The newcomer made its mark with an interesting menu, a charming setting and the Augsondthungs gracious hospitality. Last year, the couple opened a second, larger space, creating the stylish new Araya, which has quickly developed its own following for the same reasons. For our monthly chef's profile, we talked with Chef Jon about his restaurants, life as a chef and his winning approach to two popular but exacting cuisines. Q: When did you realize you wanted to be a chef? A: Cooking has always been my passion. My mom, Araya Augsondthung, inspired me. Her cooking is my favorite by far. I love everything she cooks. I learned how to cook from being her helper starting at the age of 8 or 9. To honor her, we named our restaurant after her. Q: Describe your restaurant and menu. Fuji is casual, nice, and young while its sister, Araya, is more modern, with a beautiful atmosphere. Both offer a warm welcome from our smiling staffs. At both, you will experience top-notch quality food, friendly service and reasonable prices. We serve famous authentic Thai dishes such as Thai red or green curry, pad Thai, tom yum or tom kha soup, and a variety of dishes from the sushi bar. Our menu offers good variety and our chefs create a special menu every few weeks. Q: Your menu has some unusual items. Where do you get the ideas for these dishes? A: I had a dream of having restaurants that offer customers different and trendy menus. It seems like almost all the Thai and sushi restaurants I know have the same menus, rarely adding anything new. I want everyone to think about us when they want good Thai or Asian or the best sushi. Our restaurants are not just typical places. So I do research and from that create new dishes that make the menu more interesting. Because of the limited of space at Fuji, we cannot offer as many unique items as we can at Araya, but we still have tuna chips and our signature roll, S.T.T. (spicy tuna tempura). The S.T.T. is a new version of your regular spicy tuna roll but with more ingredients and flash fried. You can still enjoy the fresh raw tuna inside! Q: Whats different about Araya? A: At Araya, we have a bigger kitchen and sushi bar. So that means we can do lot more. We have created spicy tuna nachos, duck buns and sauted chicken liver with asparagus. When you go to sport bars you see people sharing Mexican nachos with beers. I thought it would be a good idea if we had something for customers to enjoy with sake before their meals. Our nachos are served on wonton chips instead. Duck buns and chicken liver have become two of our signature dishes. I had very good barbecued pork buns in Chinatown in New York City. That inspired me to create our duck buns. I thought it would be more interesting if we made it with roasted duck. If you go to my hometown, Bangkok, you can find the chicken liver dish in every street market. I want to present authentic Thai dishes to Naples. We also have Chiang Mai curry noodles. It is one of the most popular dishes in northern Thailand. We added a grill line on our menu that includes yakitori, the Japanese style grilled skewers, such as enoki mushroom and bacon or asparagus and bacon. We also have grilled octopus, one of the most popular dishes here, and five-spice marinated grill entrees called AsianGrilled Entrees. Q: And the crme brulee and other desserts? A: My wife, On, loves to bake. She makes very delicious green tea cheesecake. And one of our friends told us about green tea crme brulee so we thought that would be a good idea for dessert, too. If you want to try it you have to come to Araya. Q: What are your favorite dishes on the menu? A: My favorite dishes grilled octopus and mango duck salad from the appetizers. I love country basil chicken. It is authentic and delicious, especially when I make it Thai hot and have it with fried egg! Blue crab fried rice is another of my favorite dishes. Fresh premium grade jumbo lump crab meat ummm, you cant go wrong with it. From the sushi menu, I always enjoy tuna loco and hamachi sashimi. Fresh fish is the heart of sushi bar.

DIRK ANDERSON HAS BEEN A RESIDENTIAL designer for the past 31 years. This creative individual works in different styles, and above all, takes who his client is into consideration when selecting dcor that meets that clients tastes. Each month, Miromar Design Center recognizes a top designer based upon nominations from the 45 design center store managers and Mr. Anderson was named the December 2014 Designer of Distinction. Mr. Anderson says the design center is a vital part of his business because of the array of unique showrooms under one roof. We caught up with Mr. Anderson at the Henredon Interior Design showroom at Miromar Design Center to ask him our burning design questions. Q: Whats your favorite home design trend right now? A: I always have liked gray and Im glad its back. Q: What trends are you glad have gone by the wayside? Glad to see the end of heavy Tuscan. I like it in the right place, but its not for everywhere. Q: If you could have a celebrity (or local) designer decorate your house, who would it be? In all honesty, I am too controlling to let that happen. Q: What decor would you most like to have in your home? A: Minimal. Q: What was the most difficult project or home youve ever done, and why? A: The most challenging situations involve couples who dont have even slightly the same taste. Q: What are some challenges you have overcome? A: I hang in for the long haul, and it eventually works itself out. Typically, once I develop a working relationship with someone, we stick together a long time. Q: Whats the most over-the top luxury space you ever saw or developed? A: A longtime client in Ohio built a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home with heavy Asian influence. They are still working on the ever-expanding Japanese gardens that encompass about 85 acres so far. Thats 85 manicured acres. Q: Please share any advice you have for a homeowner embarking on new home construction.A: Find someone with knowledge and contacts and trust them to work with you and guide you through the selection process, but make sure they listen to you as well. I always listen because people will tell you who they are.Dirk Anderson 777-2773 firstname.lastname@example.org. dirkandersondesign.com Miromar Design Center 10800 Corkscrew Drive Estero 390-0078 MiromarDesignCenter.comDIRK ANDERSON embraces the gray areas of dcor FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JANUARY 2015 LUXE LIVING 3DESIGNER Q&A o n w i t i m lu x o p Fr he w n a h COURTESY PHOTOOne of Dirk Andersons many beautiful rooms.

After 24 years in business, its not hard to see why Thomas Riley Studio execs hired someone with an eagle eye for details and luxury, keeping true to the mission of the gallery and how the gallery is curated for the Naples market a tall order. The man in charge of that portion of the Thomas Riley empire is Chad Jensen, who passionately steers the studio in the direction that befits the legendary company. Mr. Jensen, who works closely with Mr. Riley and his sons, Matt and Ben, was recruited out of design school and is a mastery level woodworker and fine furniture maker. After a decade with Thomas Riley companies, Jensen has reached a major career milestone with the Versailles Collection by Chad Jensen for Thomas Riley Studio. I was inspired after Mr. Riley and his son got an idea about a collection based on Versailles and becoming involved with the Versailles Foundation, says Mr. Jensen, who traveled to Versailles for research. There I rode a bike around, getting inspired, taking pictures, taking everything in, and I realized so much has been done to replicate Versailles, but this collection more reinterprets it and is in homage to it. The collection examines the positive and negative spaces of the sculptures on the grounds of Versailles and reinterprets that display without manipulating it. For example, the limited-edition Profil de Marie tables were created from a tracing of the silhouette of Marie Antoinette in walnut with a gold mirrorpolished stainless steel and low-iron glass. We launched the collection during design week in New York City at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair at the Javits Center, which is geared toward architects and designers and professors from Pratt Rhode Island School of Design, Fashion Institute of Technology, says Mr. Jensen, who says the core principle of his work is to cross-pollinate fine art with design. Shipping all of the furniture to New York City, designing the booth and setting it up was a lot of work, but very fulfilling to do all of that on a global platform.Creative collaborationThomas Riley Studio is known for collaboration. Other pieces in the fine furniture collection demonstrate that philosophy in flip-top tables. La Petite Blanche and La Petite Noire are part of an artist collaboration series between Ysabel Lemay and Mr. Jensen. The tables feature low-iron glass with ceramic frit ink, gold mirror-polished stainless steel and painted wood. The amount of detail that went into creating these unique tables is astounding, and they look like they would be perfectly at home at Versailles. The gathering of birds and flowers is almost haunting, as if the avian portion of the tabletop might take flight from its branches at any moment, or a sudden breeze might cause the flowers to sway. Ysabel Lemay is a decorative artist we represent who does these amazing photo fusion pictures, so we commissioned her to do a tabletop design to go with my fine custom furniture design, says Mr. Jensen, who has previously exhibited in Shanghai. Included among the silhouettes are the Silhouette de la Nymphe and Silhouette de la Garonne, both made with gold mirror-polished stainless steel interior and mirror-polished aluminum. They are inspired by tienne Le Hongres water nymph and Antoine Coysevoxs sculptures, respectively. Perhaps one of the most unique pieces in the collection is the stunning Chateau & Parc, a hand-knotted Persian rug crafted from undyed natural wool, in collaboration with Orley Shabahang. Each piece in the Versailles collection is offered in limited edition and engraved with the edition number, date and signature of the designer. The Thomas Riley Studio is near downtown Naples built in a space designed by Mr. Jensen, and it has been open exactly a year after a successful virtual business online. The space lends itself to another extension of Mr. Rileys inspirations: education and the art community. We are excited to continue with art education and helping establish a creative community, and that includes local pop-up exhibitions so artists can collaborate with us on work that is new to Naples, including creative direction, Mr. Jensen says. This extends to how we present the work and partnerships. The 2015 seasons highlights include: German painter/colorist Peter Zimmermann, with the cooperation of Wasserman Projects, from Jan. 15-March 6. The studio will showcase his Resin paintings. March 12-April 17, Neapolitans will be able to see New York visual artist/photographer Kim Keevers constructed tank environments and volumetric color series. April 23-May 29, the studio will feature new works by photo-fusion artist Ysabel LeMay, installation artist/ceramist Pascale Girardin and glass blower Joshua Wojick. Other artists affiliated with Thomas Riley Studio include Bud Latven, Carmelo Blandino, Chris Zettel and Scott Daniel, and the studio is a dealer for companies such as Lobmeyr Lighting and a marvel of modern furnishings, the Fletcher Capstan Table.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JANUARY 2015 LUXE LIVING 11COVER STORY BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentEach month, LUXE Living features a makeover story giving readers pause to wonder, How did they do that? This month, our cover story home could be called the mother of all makeovers resulting in one of Naples finest examples of what can happen when a design trifecta happens between homeowner, builder and designer. Native New Englanders Anthony and Joanne Migliaro could be two of the nicest people ever to migrate to Naples. Their warm, inviting presence is unmistakable. Nothing could please these homeowners more than seeing a guest walk through their front door. Once inside the house, visitors instantly feel welcome, despite a dramatic entrance that defines the word wow. Perhaps thats why the Migliaros home has been the site of many a holiday party, their soaring Christmas tree echoing the joy this couple share so freely. Its challenging to make a home this size feel cozy, but somehow, with their graciousWhen people come in here, they really feel special, especially when we entertain, and we love that guests still find it striking even though we have been friends for years and theyve seen it many times.

When people come in here, they really feel special, especially when we entertain, and we love that guests still find it striking even though we have been friends for years and theyve seen it many times, Mr. Migliaro says. They will say they want to spend more time looking at the details, and every time they visit us, they are seeing something new they never saw before. The Migliaros have lived in their Mediterra house for seven years. It was constructed in 2002 as a model, but the owners made a lot of changes, including remodeling it twice through the years. The final product is part fantasy space, part homespun touches. But it didnt always look like this. Titanic teamworkBCB Homes renovated the kitchen and casual living area. Vice President Greg Brisson says the remodel of those areas needed to meet the Migliaros desire to update the kitchen finishes and dcor, as well as to rearrange and reprogram the kitchens uses. They wanted it to function better for their everyday use, Mr. Brisson says. Trying to find an updated look and layout while still fitting with the existing Mediterranean interiors was the biggest challenge. At the end of the makeover project, Mr. Brisson says his favorite aspect of MAKEOVERFrom page 11 TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY Charm to spare: Joanne and Anthony Migliaro love to welcomes friends in their warm kitchen.
FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JANUARY 2015 LUXE LIVING 13COVER STORYSEE MAKEOVER, 14 the makeover that makes it all worthwhile is the cabinetry finishes. The backsplash and tile work were beautiful, and the way it all integrated together even with the countertops was absolutely stunning, Mr. Brisson says, adding that a single-family homeowner has to be mindful of careful planning and design of a remodel so that it is artfully integrated with the rest of the home. Put the time up front to design the project well so that it is well integrated into the existing architecture and design. BCB Homes worked with the expert design team of Collins & DuPont Design Group to come up with the vision for the remodel. Collins & DuPont designers have more than proven their talents in an array of award-winning homes that inspire awe and appreciation in even the most discriminating homeowner.

14 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORYWhat Collins & Dupont Designer Lana Knapp loves most about the Migliaros is their enthusiasm and passion for life. Ms. Knapp says they see eye to eye when it comes to color and overall design. The spaces must be aesthetically beautiful and extremely functional and comfortable without losing anything in style, she says. Anthony always asks me, Lana, does it have the wow factor? With the Migliaros, this is a must. Ms. Knapp says she was impressed by the detailing and materials used in the Migliaros home, including the stunning limestone columns and fireplace, which are timeless details in this traditional design. The only thing that it needed was a little updating, like the original woodwork in the entry, dining room and kitchen, which were very dark and heavy. My challenge was to use as many of the original architectural details as possible while creating a fresh, updated look, says Ms. Knapp, who achieved this by lightening up the color palate that played off the natural, soft tones of the stone detailing throughout. One of the challenges I had to overcome was to add lots of needed storage without it looking heavy and cramped.Details make a differenceAnd then there were details after details to consider throughout the project. For example, Ms. Knapp says she always paints the outlet covers to blend in with the backsplash material to create a fluid, uninterrupted design and camouflage the outlets.MAKEOVERFrom page 13COURTESY PHOTOSThe new kitchen is more spacious and modern. A little table and banquette serve as a breakfast nook. A special room for reading off the master bedroom. The marble bar encourages gathering.
FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JANUARY 2015 LUXE LIVING 15COVER STORYSEE MAKEOVER, 16 One of the most useful details that I incorporated into the design for the Migliaros was using a wood-look porcelain tile in the kitchen and family room, Ms. Knapp says. The Migliaros love the way it looks and how it holds up with all of the constant entertaining. Working with BCB Homes on such a unique project also helped something Ms. Knapp says is always a wonderful experience. They are very professional and they put the best quality possible into everything they do, she says. I have worked with them for years, and each experience has been a very positive one for the client as well as myself. I would recommend them to anyone. Between the Jerusalem stone columns spaced throughout the property and a pool thats modeled after San Simeon cobalt tiles, a home this size could feel over the top. Instead, it feels just right. Remodeling is a domino effect, so we have repainted and added lighting, and there is that wow factor when you walk in this is a party house, Mrs. Migliaro says. The lights are set up for gathering. For example, we had 13 people for Thanksgiving, and its so nice to sit in the dining room and sit down with good food and good friends. The Migliaros home is an open concept, but with the pillars, it still feels private. Mrs. Migliaro loves that she can work in the kitchen and make a mess, yet guests seated at the dining room table wont see it although that doesnt stop them from congregating around the vast kitchen. They love to sit in the banquette, which is positioned at the beginning of the island. Little touches, such as each of the outlets painted to match the tile, take the kitchen to the next level of design detail.

They love the rooms that were remodeled, but also cherish their bedroom. Before we remodeled previously, there were a lot of dark golds and brick and browns, Mr. Migliaro says. Now the house is a romantic, welcoming place. Thats an understatement. The house is heavy on romance, from the columns surrounding the dining area to the couples massive, four-post bed. Yet the Migliaros, who are natives of Massachusetts, are making some major life changes that dont include the upkeep that comes with a 5,800-squarefoot house. They are selling their beloved makeover. Their one wish? That the new owners love it as much as they have.

20 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYMUST READ Farmhouse ModernIF EVER THERE WAS A DESIGN BOOK THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO flee Naples, buy a farm and set down roots in the country, its Farmhouse Modern by incomparable designer Terry John Woods. With photos by Kindra Clineff, it serves as an inspirational guide to turning any dcor scheme into a warmer, more inviting place where guests feel welcome and homeowners never want to leave. Farmhouse Modern is the third installment of the farmhouse-style series in which Mr. Woods and Ms. Clineff show us all how to take a simple space and make it special. Someone who owns dozens of books will love how he uses books in similar colors to create a oneof-a-kind, truly custom bookshelf that steals the show in the whole room. Milk bottles become creative accent pieces, and he illustrates how even a stack of tiny plates, little sliver of silver and a sprig of color can make an otherwise dull table a savory sight. Mr. Woods ideas also are practical, which is essential in any real farmhouse, where time is limited and the work is never really done. Why put white serving bowls and plates away when they can serve as the perfect accent atop an old cabinet? Place them artfully and the entire area looks purposeful and lovely. Position the cabinet in such a way to allow for the hanging of your favorite pots and pans, and of course the biggest sieve you can find. Whether you grow your own greens, shop at Publix or only wish you had access to a farm-to-table Amagansett gourmet market, nothing says farmhouse chic like a strainer hanging overhead. Little treasures around the house are transformed.
FLORIDA WEEKLY JANUARY 2015 LUXE LIVING 21 Its also the marriage of traditional and modern styles in the same space that makes Farmhouse Modern so addictive. Who would have thought of a stylish, white wing-backed chair paired with a rustic dresser and weathered urn in a bedroom, with a contemporary painting over the fireplace to boot? Even the way Mr. Woods styles his fireplaces when not in use is creative and fun, such as leaning narrow birchwood logs against the fireplace opening. Farmhouse Modern shows readers how to blend traditional and modern elements, but this isnt the typical move that there, showcase this here design how-to manuscript. Anyone could incorporate these suggestions even in monotoneprone Florida using Mr. Woods fun, doable examples.
