Dearest Pauline A World War II Healer Writes Home tells the story of love and liberation amid the loss and horror of war through the correspondence and war artifacts of Dr. Price Duff, a Vanderbilt Universityeducated physician who served in the U.S. Armys European Civil Affairs division from 1942-45. The exhibit consists mostly of letters between Dr. Duff and his wife, Pauline, during his deployment in Europe; there are also letters from the doctor to other family members, including his brother and brother-inlaw who were also serving overseas. Dr. Duff was drafted in 1942 when he was working at the health department in Kentuckys Cumberland County, serving the poor who could not afford private care. The Army sent him to Yale University for training before he went to Europe as part of the medical team that would assist in the liberation of Buchenwald. They treated all manner of ailments in the civilian population during and after the war, including victims of the infamous Nazi doctor, Josef Mengele. He left the United States as a little country doctor and came back the 1940s version of Gregory House, says Dr. Duffs granddaughter, local resident Paula Iacampo. There was nothing he hadnt seen. He was fixing bones, delivering babies and treating horrible diseases, sometimes without equipment. Ms. Iacampo has spent the last few years organizing and transcribing her grandfathers letters, which her grandmother Pauline stored in a picnic basket in the couples attic.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 4, 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY The Super BowlPete Carroll, coach of the Seattle Seahawks, makes $8 million a year. Bill Belichick, coach of the New England Patriots, makes $7.5 million a year. Nothing else really needs to be said about the Super Bowl, or professional football. But let me add this, anyway: The president of the United States makes $400,000 a year. The paltry difference in pay between the two coaches is only $500,000. Of course, Mr. Carroll is 63 and Mr. Belichick is only 62, so maybe Mr. Carroll deserves more. Age should have its perks, after all. Besides, Mr. Carroll was born in San Francisco, Calif., which ought to count for something. Also, he holds more than just an undergraduate degree in business, which he earned from the University of the Pacific after transferring there out of junior college; he also has a masters degree in physical education. Oh, and he played a little college ball but failed to make the cut for a World League team in lesser Mauritania or somewhere like that. Then everything changed. He went into coaching at the University of Arkansas under Lou Holtz, who later became the greatest Notre Dame coach in history, and never mind a little cheating scandal near the end. But the greatest achievement in Lou Holtzs career was not his winning record at Notre Dame. No. It was the fact that he hired Mr. Carroll into poverty. At Arkansas, Mr. Carroll worked as a graduate assistant and secondary coach for $182 a month. Thats right, $182 a month. And now, 38 years later, we come to Super Bowl XLIX. As everybody knows, the NFL is the official repository of the living Latin language, a language that has been thought dead in the English-speaking world since sometime in the 18th century but continues to show a fluttering and completely inexplicable pulse in Super Bowl numerals. Those very same numerals, the curse of millions of school children in a previous age, were once used by giggling Roman emperors drinking wine in lead cups to count the number of dead gladiators and slaughtered lions and hacked-up Jews the minions carried out of the bloody Coliseum every 15 minutes. Since few are left alive who know what those numerals mean, I will tell you. The current XLIX, unfortunately for the easily confused, can mean one of two things, according to scholars: either a package of imported, Italian-made, titanium-reinforced condoms, or the number 49, as in Super Bowl XLIX. I learned much of this from Mr. Carrolls Wikipedia biography, and made up the rest. Bottom line (which is the point of Super Bowls): He was hired for exactly $182 a month during the 1977 season. And by the way, Abe Lincoln grew up in a log cabin. But what about Mr. Belichick? Now this is a coach I can really like. Born in Nashville, raised in Annapolis, he is the son of an assistant football coach at the U.S. Naval Academy. He played not just football but lacrosse, the toughest team sport in the Americas except for politics. As it turns out, lacrosse was invented by Indians for only one reason, historians tell us: To help toughen up the mostly privateschool sons of fathers and grandfathers who stole the land from the Indians in the first place. Of course, baby boomers like Bill who played lacrosse were usually considered upper-crust, at least compared to Pete (I feel more comfortable using their first names, from now on). Bill didnt mess with junior college, like Pete. He graduated from Annapolis High School, then spent a year at the elite Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., the alma mater of such luminaries as Humphrey Bogart, George W. Bush and other famous actors. Bill was boosting his grades and lifting weights in the Phillips Academy spa so he could get into that fine little private university in Middletown, Conn., Wesleyan. (Actually, when you go to Phillips for a postgraduate high school year to boost your grades, youre really going there to prove that your parents can pay full freight for high-profile, eastern colleges that deign to let you in about $3.75 million a week, or something like that.) At Wesleyan, Bill didnt mess around. At least not according to Wikipedia. He earned a degree in economics and played football, lacrosse and squash. And then he broke into the big time. You cant write about Bill Belichick without quoting this line from Wiki: After graduating (from Wesleyan), Belichick took a $25-per-week job as assistant to Baltimore Colts Head Coach Ted Marchibroda in 1975. Thats right, $25 a week in Baltimore. You see how much harder he had it than Pete? He probably lived on dandelion greens and dirt, and slept in the parking lot of Memorial Stadium not far from the shipyards and the Baltimore Harbor tunnel. And by the way, Abe Lincoln grew up in a log cabin. One thing is sure: Both of these men, Bill and Pete, can coach a football team. Nowadays, that phrase is a euphemism for managing a billion-dollar corporation and keeping the customers happy at the same time, in some cases by deflating footballs. The president of the United States, on the other hand, may or may not be able to manage the nation, and certainly cant keep its citizens happy for more than about 30 seconds at any one stretch. Which may account for his very small salary. And just because the current commander-in-chief is good at jump shots and dribbling well, that aint nothing but mess-around. This is the Super Bowl, and thats not mess-around, not with Bill Belichick on one sideline and Pete Carroll on the other. Were talking XLIX years of head-buttin, butt-bustin, bone-bruisin f ootball rock n roll, where the gridiron green is a billionaires dream. And where football coaches can make 20 times more money than the president. H N M f A roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Heroism on the battlefield had never gone away, of course, far from it (witness the Medal of Honors awarded for acts of extraordinary valor in Iraq and Afghanistan). But the classic war hero is more than just brave or fierce. He is famous and almost universally acclaimed. On top of his battlefield exploits, he is a cultural phenomenon. That is what American Sniper unquestionably makes of Chris Kyle. The late Navy SEAL sniper had already written a best-selling memoir and was known as The Legend within the military for his record number of confirmed kills during four tours in Iraq. The success of the movie, where he is played by Bradley Cooper, also means he will be remembered as a larger-than-life figure. Such is the power of the silver screen. American Sniper had the largest opening weekend ever in January. It is producing the kind of numbers usually reserved for mindless comic-book superhero movies. It has played especially well in Middle America, with its top-grossing theaters in places like San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Houston and Albuquerque. All of this is profoundly disquieting to the left, which has so much sway in Hollywood. It hates and distrusts the idea of the war hero, believing it smacks of backwardness and jingoism. Its notion of compelling war movies were the tendentiously anti-war flops Green Zone, Stop-Loss and In the Valley of Elah. Its reaction to American Sniper has been to belittle the movie and smear Chris Kyle. Actor Seth Rogen compared American Sniper to the Nazi propaganda film featured in the movie Inglourious Basterds. Director Michael Moore tweeted that hed been taught to consider snipers cowards. Kyle was a hatefilled killer, according to The Guardian, which also deems him a racist who took pleasure in dehumanizing and killing brown people. One member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences American Sniper is up for best picture told the website TheWrap that Kyle seems like he may be a sociopath. One can only imagine, in this spirit, the criticisms that might have been made of past American war heroes. Why did John Paul Jones have such destructive urges toward British shipping? Did Joshua Chamberlain have to be so bloodthirsty when under assault on Little Round Top? What was wrong with Alvin York and Audie Murphy that they were so obsessed with killing Germans? Despite the reaction against it in some quarters, American Sniper is hardly a simplistic glorification of warfare. It shows its terrible cost, in lost and broken lives. The New Yorker, accurately, calls it a devastating pro-war movie and a devastating anti-war movie. Kyle himself is nearly consumed by the horrors of what he experienced in Iraq, and his tragic death at the hands of a disturbed vet is a heartbreaking coda to his service. Chris Kyle, who had his flaws like anyone else, wasnt a saint. He was an exceptional warrior whose bravery and feats on the battlefield will now be remembered for a very long time. He is, in short, a war hero. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.State of the Union: Imagine something differentImagine if we did something different. Those were just six words out of close to 7,000 that President Barack Obama spoke during his State of the Union address. He was addressing both houses of Congress, which are controlled by his bitter foes. Most importantly, though, he was addressing the country. Obama employed characteristically soaring rhetoric to deliver his message of bipartisanship. The shadow of crisis has passed, and the State of the Union is strong, he assured us. From whose lives has the shadow of crisis passed? And for whom is this Union strong? Will we accept an economy where only a few of us do spectacularly well? Obama asked. Or will we commit ourselves to an economy that generates rising incomes and chances for everyone who makes the effort? Oxfam, the international anti-poverty organization, weighed in on the question, releasing a report the day before the speech called Wealth: Having It All and Wanting More. Oxfam analyzed data from the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Databook 2014 and the Forbes list of the worlds billionaires to determine some shocking facts about global inequality. First, it found that, as of 2014, the 80 richest individuals in the world are wealthier than the bottom 50 percent of the worlds population. This bears repeating: The 80 wealthiest people, a group that could fit on a bus, control more wealth than 3.5 billion people. The wealthy are not only accumulating more wealth, but they are getting it faster. Between 2009 and 2014, Oxfam reports, the wealth of those 80 richest people in the world doubled. This, while the rest of the world was mired in the Great Recession, with rampant unemployment and peoples life savings wiped out. If current trends continue, Oxfam notes, by 2016 the richest 1 percent of the worlds population will control more wealth than the bottom 99 percent. One way the wealthy manage to increase their wealth, Oxfam reports, is through lobbying. The report identifies two industries, finance/insurance and pharmaceutical/health care, as major sources of wealth for the richest, and as principal founts of political contributions. Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent by these industries annually to shape public policy and safeguard profits. For far too long, lobbyists have rigged the tax code with loopholes that let some corporations pay nothing while others pay full freight, President Obama said in his State of the Union. Theyve riddled it with giveaways the super-rich dont need, denying a break to middleclass families who do. Obama has proposed increasing taxes on the very rich: Lets close the loopholes that lead to inequality by allowing the top 1 percent to avoid paying taxes on their accumulated wealth. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston is an expert on taxes. We spoke to him on the Democracy Now! news hour soon after the State of the Union. The idea that we shouldnt adjust the tax rates for people at the top and doing so is somehow class warfare is absurd, he said. The president is proposing that for those people in the top one-half of 1 percent and almost all the money would be paid by the top tenth of 1 percent, people who make over $2 million that their capital-gains tax rate be at the Ronald Reagan rate of 28 percent, Johnston summarized. And Republicans are saying that thats outrageous. Well, Im sorry, theyre always telling us Ronald Reagan is a saint. What would these taxes pay for? Among other things, Obama pledged to make child care more affordable. He promised free community-college education. These are genuine, good ideas. After his address, Republicans repeatedly said he was for the redistribution of wealth, code for socialism. But wealth IS being redistributed by the government upward, from the poor to the rich through policies promoted by both major parties, from tax loopholes to free trade deals that protect corporate profits over workers rights. And who is promulgating these laws? The Center for Responsive Politics, a political contribution watchdog group, reports that, for the first time ever, more than half of the members of Congress are millionaires. The group states that this represents a watershed moment at a time when lawmakers are debating issues like unemployment benefits, food stamps and the minimum wage, which affect people with far fewer resources, as well as considering an overhaul of the tax code. As President Obama said in his State of the Union, To everyone in this Congress who still refuses to raise the minimum wage, I say this: If you truly believe you could work full time and support a family on less than $15,000 a year, try it. Growing economic inequality not only hurts the poor, and the working and middle class, but destabilizes society overall. Yes, we must imagine if we did something different. Everyone must have a stake in the state of the union. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Delores Sorey, wife of Mayor John Sorey and the First Lady of Naples, is chair of Friends of Baker Park, the nonprofit founded to raise money for the parks initial development and to support its maintenance thereafter. Friends of Baker Park already has secured the commitment of more than $5 million from private individuals toward a $7.5 million goal. Its second annual Prelude to a Park gala is coming up and will consist of a patron party (complete with a surprise unveiling), a full-moon-night affair and a day of family fun on three consecutive days in March. Everything takes place at Riverside Circle Friday through Sunday, March 6-8. (For tickets and more information, visit friendsofbakerpark.com.) Mrs. Sorey is proud of her role as president of Friends of Baker Park and chair of Prelude to a Park. I especially like the idea of providing a traditional park that is free for everyone, she says. We have an opportunity to provide outdoor activities in a traditional, long-ago park with a carousel, a stage area for small concerts, a small lake where children can float toy boats, a lawn for running, kite flying, Frisbee-flying or just lying on the ground and contemplating what the clouds look like. In an age where computers and gadgets are beginning to dominate the attention of young people, Baker Park will provide an opportunity for kids of all ages to connect with basic outdoor activities and exercise, she says. Through Mrs. Soreys deft leadership and determination, I believe the funds will be raised to complete Baker Park and that it will become a legacy for our children and grandchildren. Delores grew up in Nashville and is the oldest of four girls. She and John met at Donelson High School when she was 15 and he was 16. They married six years later, just before John went to Vietnam. Delores graduated from Tennessee Technological University in 1969, after attending Kansas State University while John was at Fort Riley, Kan., waiting to go to Vietnam. She had always enjoyed history but majored in secondary education with social studies as a primary interest. During college, I was a full colonel in the ROTC lady mascots. It was the only time I outranked John. He had to salute me every time he saw me in uniform. It was fabulous, she says. The Soreys have been involved in volunteer work for more htan 40 years. I I love the structure of a project that has a beginning and an end, she says. And she also enjoys the creativity involved in developing fundraisers. I dont mind the asking part, but find it challenging, she says. I always have a backup ask and I never leave empty-handed. c f f t c g bobHARDEN email@example.com Talking points with Delores SoreyMentors: John Sorey and Ursula Pfahl.Something your mother was always right about: She taught me to treat people the same no matter who they are, because everyone is important.As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Freedom Fountain nears completion at Marco veterans parkAn early February completion is anticipated for the Freedom Fountain, the crown jewel of the Veterans Memorial at Marco Islands Veterans Community Park. The contractors are working diligently so that we can hopefully have a dedication ceremony on Presidents Day (Feb. 16), while the Traveling Vietnam Wall is here, says Lee Rubenstein, chairman of the Veterans Memorial Fundraising Committee. The Wall That Heals returns to the Marco park Feb. 12-16. A replica of the wall in Washington, D.C., it first came to Marco in December 2011 and attracted more than 16,000 visitors during its four-day stay. The completed Freedom Fountain will stand 10 feet tall and have a 26-foot circumference. Topping it will be the 9-foot-tall bronze sculpture of an American eagle in flight. The eagle currently perches behind Marco Island City Hall. The third phase of construction at the Veterans Memorial, the fountain was made possible by donations from WWII veteran Robert Sargeant and his late wife Thelma, and Jim and Allyson Richards, all of Marco Island. The eagle sculpture was a gift from islanders Mike and Jill Havey. A $20,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Collier County put the Veterans Memorial Fundraising Committee over the top for construction of the Freedom Fountain. Assisting the committees efforts was a pleasure, says Eileen Connolly-Keesler, Community Foundation president and CEO. We think its an amazing project, she says. Established in 2007, the all-volunteer Veterans Memorial Fundraising Committee has raised $522,000 for the work, primarily through private donations and the sale of commemorative brick pavers, bench plaques, service-branch medallions, palm trees and flag pole memorials that grace the monument to Americas military men and women. Pavers can still be purchased, as can inscriptions on the fountains granite panels. Tax-deductible donations are also still being accepted. For donation forms or more information about purchasing brick pavers and fountain inscriptions, call Mr. Rubenstein at 564-9894 or Patty Mastronardi of the Marco Island Parks Department at 389-5035.

HISTORYand defining the school for the next generation of students. No one-trick ponyAt a meeting of the FGCU Board of Trustees on Jan. 20, a question that revolved around the second floor ballroom in the student union was, what should FGCU be known for? For being a basketball powerhouse? One of the most affordable public universities in the U.S.? A top biological, engineering and renewable energy research institution? The arts? Overall academic excellence? Skateboarders? Or all of the above. I dont want to see us being a onetrick pony, said one trustee, referring to the schools nickname, Dunk City, after the mens basketball team made it to the Sweet 16 in 2013. Its OK to be known as Dunk City unless we start losing. The governor and state university system leadership, the board of trustees, teachers, and close to 14,500 students here are still determining the answer. I think what is reassuring that hasnt changed much is the passion of the students, said 33-yearold trustee Kevin Price, one of the governors latest and youngest appointees to the board of trustees, and the first member with an FGCU undergraduate degree. They still do have a part in deciding its future. And they are in the fabric of what we are going to become I would hope that we are known for how successful our graduates are (both) personally and professionally.That next big chapterAfter Dunk City was brought up at the board meeting, President Bradshaw remarked that the schools non-athletic accomplishments deserve more press coverage. Hed like to see more reports about the schools affordability keeping tuition rates flat for three years running and its graduates ability to get jobs. Under his tenure starting in 2007, FGCU met rapid growth with aggressive construction on campus. Enrollment shot up from roughly 7,000 students 10 years ago and is expected to reach 20,000 in the next decade. To keep pace, the school this fall began a three-year $100 million fundraising campaign to be used for purposes such as encouraging science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, education and recruiting new faculty. We are on to that next big chapter, said board of trustees chair Robbie Roepstorff. The school should pursue a reputation for comprehensiveness, she added, giving students a well-rounded education in whatever they choose. Trustee Russell Priddy argued that instead of comprehensiveness, FGCUs leadership should drill down and focus on a limited number of degree programs that we can get a reputation for in the short term. That might include the type of research happening at FGCUs Vestor Marine and Environmental Research Field Station in Bonita Springs, where students have been learning about the delicate coastal watersheds and ecosystems that surround us. Director Darren Rumbold, Ph.D., has studied the mercury level in sharks, for instance, and numerous projects by his colleagues include research on the impact sea level rise could have on oyster reefs. But Mr. Rumbold is in favor of a more broad-based education as well. We really still have a liberal education mind set here and rightly so, he said. You cant be a very good scientist unless you can communicate well. Trustee Tom Grady pointed out a Wall Street Journal article about accelerated three-year undergraduate degrees that move higher achieving students more quickly into graduate school. Maybe thats what we want to be known for, he said rhetorically. I dont know Even if the Dunk City nickname fades, a $1 million 360-degree score and messaging board for Alico Arena that the board of trustees agreed to install will probably be shining for years to come. Its part of $7 million in improvements planned for the arena. If were going to be a Division I standout we need to be able to look like a Division I standout, said FGCU Financing Corp. board chair Dick Ackert. FGCU board of trustee meetings are open to the public. The next one will be held Tuesday, April 21, at FGCUs Cohen Center Ballroom.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 4, 2015 NEWS A9 May 1998. First commencement ceremony with 81 graduates. August 1998 First student housing building opens. July 1999 William C. Merwin, Ph.D., becomes FGCUs second fulltime president. 2000 FGCU hires its first full-time athletic director. August 2007 Wilson G. Bradshaw, Ph.D. is selected as the next president after Dr. Merwins abrupt departure following an affair with a colleague. 2007 The school begins competing in Division I of the NCAA Atlantic Sun Conference. Fall 2012 African Americans make up 7.5 percent of FGCUs students. 2.5 percent are Asian. 17.2 percent Hispanic, .8 percent Native American, and 69.1 percent are white. March 2013 The mens basketball team sets a record when it becomes the first No. 15 seed to make it to the NCAA tournaments Sweet 16. May 2013 The Florida Legislature, for the first time in six years of cuts, raises the schools budget by nearly $12 million.Source: FGCU Legislative agendaPresident Bradshaw and the board of trustees plan to seek funds this year from the state legislature for various projects. Their top priority is $4 million for construction of South Road Access. Miromar Development Corp. donated the easement for the road. In exchange, it will serve as an entrance to a Miromar development at FGCUs southern border that will include residential housing, restaurants, shops, entertainment, and some job opportunities for students. It would also provide another evacuation route and road for emergency responders, and access to existing student housing. The trustees may also seek $4.2 million for academic and career attainment programs for students; $9 million for a central energy plant to meet cooling needs that have reached capacity; $3.9 million for the planning and design (not construction) of a STEM lab building on campus; and $9.8 million to help build a new student health and fitness center. The existing one was built to accommodate about 4,000 students. If you go to our wellness and recreation center at 5 p.m. it is worse than Disney World trying to get on equipment, said Trustee and FGCU Student Government President Dominic Volpi.Alternative energy schoolEnvironmental stewardship is at the heart of FGCUs modus operandi with its U.S. Green Building Council-certified buildings, boardwalks, hiking trails, and Food Forest, a student-run sustainable garden modeled on a layered rainforest ecosystem. With that in mind, the school plans to break ground in February on a $12.5 million facility where faculty and students will focus on renewable energy research; especially solar power, at least initially. It is part of a private developers larger, 240-acre Innovation Hub (I-Hub). FGCUs Emergent Technologies Institute will be housed in a new building there with classrooms and an energy park all on 6.5 acres. It will be an anchor facility to attract other researchers or related companies to the I-Hub and create jobs. Thatll be a magnet for private companies, a seed that helps start the development growth, said architect Tom Mayo, director of facilities planning for FGCU. Biofuel companies have expressed interest, for example, as well as other universities in being part of the I-Hub developed by Rich Galvano. FGCU plans to pay for the new building and energy park with $11.9 million in state funds it has been awarded through the Public Education Capital Outlay program. FGCU will pay the remaining $600,000. We see in the future job growth (in renewable energy) is going to be tremendous, its going to be phenomenal in that area, said Joseph Simmons, Ph.D., FGCU Backe Chair for Renewable Energy. So wed like to start preparing students to take advantage of that potential for job growth. The facility will also complement FGCUs existing 15-acre solar field. Job seekers in the solar industry will get installer training and FGCU researchers will study the regional use of bioenergy and storage, and how to improve the delivery of solar power to make it more viable commercially. That includes electric vehicle research such as cooling systems for long-haul trucks; making solar fields compatible with plants for farming operations; and developing solar car ports to improve asphalt parking lots that sit wide open to the sun and create heat islands. FGCUs Emergent Technologies Institute Building & Energy Park at I-Hub is scheduled to open in January 2016.STEM school growsIts no secret that students in the United States lag behind in STEM, the trendy acronym that stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. But helping high school kids understand physics by racing solar-powered go karts and facilitating undergraduate research projects such as building intelligent robots are just two activities supported by The Whitaker Center for STEM Education at FGCU that can help them catch up, said its director, chemistry professor Laura Frost, Ph.D. The point is that an active, hands-on teaching style is crucial for subjects ranging from chemistry to software engineering. The hands-on approach gets students excited and shows them real-world applications and meanings, said Professor Frost: The literature is clear on that, and if were not doing that were not following our own practice, the scientific method. In addition to supporting research on campus, the centers faculty reaches out to their grade school and high school counterparts to improve STEM education at all levels. Whitaker Center programs include summer workshops that provide instruction for K-12 teachers from around the region on best teaching practices for STEM education. At the same time, FGCU undergraduates involved in STEM research showed off dozens of their projects at a symposium in December. That included an engineering project in which students built a robot that could learn from its mistakes. Undergrads James Beans, Jose Fernando Gonzales Del Valle, and Carson Kirkpatrick worked with Professor Janusz Zalewski, Ph.D. in computer science, on the Arduino Robot Line Maze Solver. A wheeled robot with an Arduinobrand computer board that gives it intelligence, a motor controller and a sensor that gives it vision, traversed a maze from start to finish. But not without first taking a number of wrong turns, a research abstract reads. The robot must identify this and set itself in the correct path.Treating, curing dengue feverTwo professors in FGCUs School of Biological Sciences are behind the schools only two active patents, one awarded in 2013 and another in 2014. Sharon Isern, Ph.D., and Scott Michael, Ph.D., after more than a decade of research, developed a potential treatment for dengue fever, a nasty sickness that can cause severe headaches and joint pain, and is spread by mosquitos. In addition to the medicine, theyre working on a vaccine. That has huge significance if you consider that dengue effects as many as 400 million people per year. By attaching a small protein to the pathogen, they kept the virus from functioning well, resulting in a treatment that would reduce the amount of virus in your system once you are already sick. Now that is being taken to the next step. Their design was licensed by biotech startup Ennaid Therapeutics to start animal trials with plans to eventually begin human trials. The researchers are also searching for a preventive measure, a vaccine against dengue. It was developed in a lab at FGCUs Academic Building 7 through in vitro testing, individual cells grown on a petri dish, and is working its way through a similar process. It is currently being tested on mice at a research institute in Virginia. Although it has not appeared recently in South Florida, there have been sporadic outbreaks of the disease in Key West and Martin County between 2009 and 2014. Weve been busy here tracking those outbreaks and seeing where theyre coming from, Professor Isern said. My opinion is its going to happen, its just a matter of time unless we actively do something differently to stop it. In looking at FGCUs road ahead, Professor Isern envisions the school as being well known in a number of areas: pockets of excellence that prepare students for competitive graduate programs be it a Ph.D. like hers in biochemistry and molecular genetics, or a medical or law school education. I think that is what FGCU is going to be known for is basically being a very excellent comprehensive university that really prepares students for promising careers, she said.

Among the names later found on the customer list of the New England Compounding Center were: Baby Jesus, Hugh Jass, L.L. Bean, Filet OFish, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Harry Potter, Coco Puff, Mary Lamb, all of the Baldwin brother actors, and a grouping of Bud Weiser, Richard Coors, Raymond Rollingrock and, of course, Samuel Adams. The indictments were part of an investigation of a 2012 meningitis outbreak in which 64 people died.Cultural diversityTwo recent innovations to the generations-old Middle East sport of camel racing boosted its profile. First, to cleanse the sport of a sour period in which children from Bangladesh were trafficked to use as jockeys, owners have begun using robot jockeys electronic dummies that respond to trainers tracking the races with walkie-talkies (growling encouragement directly into camels ears) and joysticks (that trigger a whip at an appropriate time). Second, the firm Al Shibla Middle East of United Arab Emirates has introduced lycra-style, whole-body camel coverings that are believed to enhance blood circulation and, perhaps, racing speed (although the fashions are now used only in training and transportation, to lessen camels stress). Ultimately, of course, the coverings may carry advertising.The new normal Its not fair! There is not justice in this country! shouted the mother of Franklin Reyes, 17, in a New York City courtroom in January after a judge ordered the son tried for manslaughter as an adult. Reyes, an unlicensed driver fleeing a police traffic stop, had plowed into a 4-year-old girl, killing her, but had initially convinced the judge to treat him as a youthful offender. Reyes mom was so enraged at the judges switch that she had to be escorted from the room. (After the judges generous youthful offender ruling, Reyes had violated his bail conditions by getting arrested three more times.) In Phoenix in early 2014, Kevin (last name withheld), age 5, was viciously mauled by Mickey, a pit bull, necessitating multiple surgeries, leaving him with lingering pain and disfiguring facial scars, and he still requires extensive care. While Kevins trauma makes him live in gloom, Mickey has become a Phoenix celebrity after an outpouring of support from 75,000 people kept him from being euthanized for the assault. He lives now in a no-kill shelter, where his many supporters can track him on a 24-hour Internet Mickey cam. KSAZ-TV reported in December that Kevins mom had to quit her job to care for him and struggles to pay medical bills. Great art In October, vandals in Paris destroyed the large, inflatable Tree by U.S. artist Paul McCarthy in the citys Place Vendome square, but not before it became widely characterized as a gigantic green plug of the type used for anal sexual stimulation. Paris news website The Local reported in December that the controversy has been a boon to the citys sex shops. We used to sell around 50 (plugs) a month, said one wholesaler. Since the controversy, weve moved more than a thousand (at the equivalent of $23 to $45, in materials ranging from glass to stainless steel to silicone). Overthinking it: It was billed as the first-ever art exhibition expressly for nonhuman appreciation specifically, for examination by octopuses. Englands Brighton Sea Life Center featured the fivetank shared display in November (including a bunch of grapes, a piece of Swiss cheese and a plate of spaghetti exhibits made of ceramic, plastic, wood and rope) that the centers curator promised would, according to an ITV report, stimulate an octopuss natural curiosity about color, shape and texture. Wait, what? The Territorial Seed Co. of Cottage Grove, Or e., introduced a plant in 2014 that sprouts both tomatoes and potatoes, the aptly named Ketchup n Fries plant. Grafting (rather than genetic modification) splices the tomato onto potato plants (to create single plants capable of harvests of 500 red cherry tomatoes and 4.5 pounds of potatoes each). Jihadist toddlers: Britains Home Office directed in January that the UKs nursery school staffs report pupils at risk of becoming terrorists, but gave little guidance on what teachers and managers should look for. According to a description of the directive in the Daily Telegraph, staffs must have training that gives them the knowledge and confidence to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and challenge extremist ideas.Latest rightsAll Im looking for is whats rightfully owed to me under the (corrections department) contract, said Westchester County (New York) corrections officer Jesus Encarnacion, after having drawn $1.2 million in disability salary for the last 17 years as a result of slipping on a leaf of lettuce on a stairway. When he fell, he jammed his wrist and several surgeries ensued, and when he was finally ready for light duty a few years ago, he reinjured the wrist on the first day and never returned. Encarnacion now seeks a full disability retirement from the state, but officials maintain that disability retirement is for injuries resulting only from the rigors of the job.

With the help of a Utah-based rescue organization called YNot Save a Sam, Golden Retriever Rescue of Southwest Florida saved the dog from a Korean dog-meat factory and flew her to the United States. The morning of Jan. 25, after a sleepless night at Atlantas Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, a GRRSWF volunteer met Sky and welcomed her to her new life. GRRSWF hopes that spreading the word about Sky will shine a light on the Korean practice of raising dogs for meat, and lead to a cultural transformation that ends the practice. Realizing Korea has a completely different culture when it comes to dogs does not change the fact that is horrible and inhumane and needs to be stopped, says Estero resident Alesia Galuppo, president of the local organization. Skys saga began before Christmas when volunteers for YNSAS, an organization that rescues Samoyed dogs, spotted Sky while they were visiting a Korean farm that raises dogs for meat. They couldnt get that picture out of their minds, GRRSWF board member Mark Dahlberg says. When a friend of his in southern California who had adopted a Samoyed from YNSAS heard about the golden retriever in peril in Korea, she contacted Mr. Dahlberg because she knew he rescued goldens. The Fort Myers resident then approached his eight fellow board members at GRRSWF to see if they would agree to an international rescue. It took about 20 minutes before they saidm Go get the dog, he says. This little golden stole their hearts. He then made contact with Yvette Nielsen of YNSAS, and she connected him with Janet Brettner, a dog rescuer in Korea. Once volunteers in Korea knew Sky had a rescue commitment, she was acquired from the meat farm and fostered until her flight arrangements could be made to the U.S. As those plans were being firmed up, an anonymous benefactor stepped up to pay for Skys shipping cost of $450. Mr. Dahlberg left Fort Myers on Saturday night, arriving in Atlanta hours before Skys flight, too excited to sleep. As her flight drew near, hundreds of GRRSWF Facebook fans throughout the world tracked the plane and anxiously anticipated its arrival. A photo of Mr. Dahlberg holding a sign that read Welcome Sky, GRRSWF, posted early Sunday morning, generated 74 comments and 373 likes on the rescues Facebook page. This girl is already so loved it is amazing, wrote Maryann Fitzpatrick of Naples, a GRRSWF foster mom. Were like a bunch of kids the night before Christmas. Thank you for saving this precious soul. Within moments, a reply came from the Korean student who helped coordinate Skys travel arrangements: Im overwhelmed, wrote Seungmie Lee. The credit should go to anet Brettner Im sure it will be happy ever after (for Sky). Ms. Galuppo says the effort proves that networking in the rescue community produces results. There are thousands, millions of people who care how dogs are treated not only here but around the world. They can make a difference if they understand what is going on and how they can help, says Dennis Guyitt, GRRSWF vice president and medical director. Cultural differences cant excuse the horrible treatment of mans best friend. We wanted to shine a spotlight on the treatment of dogs in Korea. One life saved may not seem like much, but it highlights the deplorable conditions these beautiful animals endure in their short lives. Following her journey back to Southwest Florida from Atlanta, Sky will be vetted and then go to a foster home for evaluation before being put up for adoption.

They sent me an email asking if I wanted to try out and I thought it was a scam, Ms. Eisenberg says. After learning that the network heard about her through her alma mater Rhode Island School of Design, she decided to take them up on their offer. Ive been hiding out in the mountains of North Carolina and I didnt think anybody knew who or where I was, she says. The six-episode series follows six competitors as they sketch, design and build pieces of furniture with one goal: to avoid elimination and end up with the grand price of $100,000 cash prize courtesy of wayfair.com and a feature in HGTV Magazine. After graduating from CSN in 2006, Ms. Eisenburg studied interior design at Miami University of Ohio and continued on to RISD for a graduate degree in furniture design. She then moved to North Carolina and began blacksmithing. Actually, when HGTV called me I hadnt been doing blacksmithing for a year yet, so I really didnt think I was prepared, she says. A fellow blacksmith put her through some intense training for a month before she went to L.A. for the show, she adds. Every day after work I was working on techniques and skills and tricks to make things faster. In each of the shows weekly challenges, the competitors are given 24 hours to design and build a piece of furniture. Each has the assistance of a master carpenter and access to a build team and a large workshop. The time constraints were positive and negative for me, says Ms. Eisenberg, who allows that she usually spend three months working on a design or I make it up as I go.

Im really hoping business picks up, she said about her hopes for what the shows exposure might do for her career. Its nice that Im steady, but to have the chance for people to contact me and say I want a coffee table and I want you to design it, would be great. Im doing custom pieces now, but theyre other peoples designs. The show is meant to highlight Ms. DeGeneres passion for furniture and design, as well as her expertise in the subject. Competing in the show also gave Ms. Eisenberg a confidence boost regarding the type of work she can do. I gained a lot more confidence in my work, she says. Before the filming, a lot of what I was doing in my shop was very small scale. The show proved to me that I can do really large scale stuff.

Most recently, he served as chief financial officer of Childrens Advocacy Center of Collier County, a group whose mission is to minimize trauma to abused children and enhance families capabilities to provide a safe environment. A longtime Floridian, Mr. Kissinger moved to Naples at age 12. He attended Pine Ridge Middle School; St. John Neumann Cath olic High School; University of Florida, where he received an associates degree; and Florida Gulf Coast University, where he earned a bachelors degree in accounting. After graduating from college, he went to work as a corporate accountant for Naples Community Hospital until a CAC board member recruited him to apply for the organizations CFO position. He spent 14 years working with the center, developing a deep passion for helping children. When the position with TIF became available, he was intrigued. TIF had always been on my radar, he says. The foundation is effecting change in peoples lives and you can see it its tangible. Plus, Immokalee has always held a special place in Mr. Kissingers heart. Its a strong, resilient community where people get to know their neighbors and feel connected, he says. I live in Bonita Springs, and I see a lot of similarities between the two communities. While leaving CAC was emotional, Mr. Kissinger is embracing his new role with TIF and enjoying the all-hands-in mentality of the organization. Every one is mission-focused and working together to achieve that mission, he says, adding, Thats made my job a lot easier, coupled with the support of our donors. These are people who arent just writing a check. They are also giv ing of their time and talents to make a difference. Making a difference is nothing new to Mr. Kissinger. Professionally, his community involvement extends beyond his positions at local nonprofits. He is an alumnus of Leadership Collier (2005) and Leadership Bonita Springs (2010) and is currently the co-vice chair of Leadership Collier. Being involved in the local chambers of commerce is something he has always valued. Its an opportunity not only to network with business leaders, but to get your message out, share and recruit people for the cause, he said. Additionally, hes a board member of the Bonita Springs Assistance Office and the CREW Land & Water Trust. On

And for the past five years, he has served as treasurer for the local Farm City BBQ, an event initiated by the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce to help facilitate relationships among the countys urban and rural residents. Held the day before Thanksgiving, the barbecue attracts upward of 1,500 people. This year his wife, Stephanie, served as chair on behalf of Waste Management, and she recently agreed to chair again in 2015 No stranger to hard work on behalf of a good cause, Mr. Kissinger has already dug his heels in at TIF, coming to the nonprofit just a few weeks before the annual Charity Classic Celebration, TIFs largest fundraiser of the year. The Charity Classic Celebration is our single most impactful event, he says. It takes care of more than 70 percent of our annual budget and impacts the lives of so many kids. Eighty-seven TIF students both past and present attended the event, and Mr. Kissinger says they impressed him the most. TIF has a buddy system that allows the kids to partner with board members, mingle and get to know some of the guests and donors, he says. These children are so dynamic and well spoken. He credits TIF for helping students become more comfortable and confident. Each year, the organization hosts a networking reception that gives students the opportunity to interact with and learn from some of the areas top business leaders, as well as an etiquette luncheon and training where students can practice their skills. And thats just the tip of the iceberg. TIF aims to empower students through numerous programs focused on education, career and life skills. The foundation currently serves nearly 1,000 children, and Mr. Kissinger aspires to increase that number. We have 465 students in Immokalee Readers, an intensive reading intervention program targeting the lower 17 percent of readers from kindergarten through third grade, he says. By the end of the school year, 90 percent are reading at grade level and 100 percent have shown improvement. Why cant we extend it to fifth grade? Its monetary. If we could extend the program, not only would we reach more students, but we would also help provide a seamless transition to middle school. The need in Immokalee is great, but our vision for TIF is almost limitless, he adds. To learn more about TIF, including how to volunteer as a mentor, call 430-9122 or visit immokaleefoundation. org.

There are two types the dry type, which is managed with vitamins, and the wet type, which is treated with injections into the eye. For those of you with the wet type, did you ever wonder why your retina specialist keeps asking you to come back in a month for your next injection? Its because the medication that is being injected (Avastin, Lucentis or Eylea) only lasts for about a month in the eye. But dont you wish there was another option instead of getting a needle into the eye every month or so? Something that could improve your vision and that didnt hurt or cause red eyes? It turns out that something actually exists. Its a laser procedure called feeder vessel treatment. The procedure often takes less than 10 minutes to perform and is done in the clinic. Its not a replacement for your injections but can be used in combination with your injections, sometimes helping to reduce the total number of injections. Heres the other piece of good news. Its available right here in Fort Myers at the Eye Centers of Florida. There are only a handful of retina centers in the world that offer this procedure. Ours at the Eye Centers of Florida is one of them. Call us today for an appointment, a second opinion or to see if youre a candidate for laser feeder vessel treatment. 12 Convenient Locations www.ecof.com 239.939.3456 ASK THE SURGEONADVERTORIALDr. Walid Mangal D.O.Vitreo-Retinal Surgeon GET OUT FOR A GOOD CAUSE Humane Society Naples and the Civil Air Patrol invite runners and their dogs to the ninth annual Run for the Paws 5K Walk/Run setting out at 8 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 31.

Meals of Hope food packages are designed to address the need for an economical, nutritious solution to aid in the fight against hunger. Each bag of fortified beans and rice or macaroni and cheese contains enough food to provide six meals. In only two hours (the typical length of a Meals of Hope food-packing event) each volunteer will generally pack around 60 bags. Thats roughly 350 meals for those in need. The food is distributed here in Collier County. Financial donations to help Meals of Hope purchase the food are welcome anytime and can be made by calling Temple Shalom at 455-3030. Volunteers of all ages to package meals are also welcome from 10 a.m. to noon on Mitzvah Day. Breakfast will be served starting at 9 a.m. for all volunteers.

Included in the collection is a label from French champagne that Dr. Duff and his unit confiscated from Nazis in Belgium who had confiscated it themselves from French citizens. Dr. Duff soaked off one of the labels, stamped with an indication it was for Nazi consumption only, and enclosed it with a letter to Mrs. Duff, in which he wrote he and his counterparts very much enjoyed five bottles of the bubbly. Upon his return to the United States, Dr. Duff opened a private practice in Nashville and returned to medical school in the 1970s to become an internist. He remarried after Paulines death in 1972 and upon his death in 1981, his second wife found that fully one-third of his patients had not paid for their services. He set up his practice in a low-income section of Nashville, Ms. Iacampo says. He chose his patients according to who needed his medical service.

A28 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 4, 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY March of Dimes works to raise awareness about racial disparities in premature birth SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFebruary is Black History Month, an annual celebration of the rich culture and history of the African-American community. March of Dimes participates this year by raising awareness about the significant disparity in prematurity rates between black infants and those of other races. Birth outcomes in the United States show considerable variation by race and ethnicity. The factors that influence disparities in perinatal health care are complex and not fully understood. According to the November 2014 Florida March of Dimes Premature Birth Report Card, the preterm birth rate (all live births less than 37 completed weeks gestation) for black infants was 17.7 percent, followed by Native American, 17.0 percent; Hispanic, 14.3 percent; Asian, 12.3 percent; and white, 11.2 percent. Racial and ethnic disparities also occur in other birth o utcomes, such as low birth weight and infant mortality. March of Dimes reports that during 2010-12, black infants (13.2 percent) were about twice as likely as Hispanic infants (7.2 percent) to be born low birth weight (less than 5 pounds). Likewise, during 2008-10, the infant mortality rate (per 1,000 live births) in Florida was highest for black infants at 11.9 percent, followed by Native Americans, 5.6 percent; whites, 5.2 percent; and Asians, 5.1 percent. Black History Month is the perfect opportunity to talk about the high prematurity rates that persist among black families, says Dr. Karen Harris of the Florida chapter of the March of Dimes. Although we have no definitive explanations for why prematurity affects this group more often than others, poor prenatal care, malnutrition, socioeconomic status, genetics, stress and unhealthy habits such as smoking might all be contributing factors. According to the Health Disparities and Inequalities Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the years 2006-10 the preterm birth rate for black infants decreased by 8 percent; however, it still remained approximately 60 percent higher than that of white infants. The CDC also reports that black infants have had the highest risk for preterm birth since at least 1981, the year when comparable data on gestational age became available. Although the prematurity rate in general began to decline in 2007, black infants are still more likely to be born late preterm, Dr. Harris says. We are urging the state to support funding and innovative practices that address fundamental medical and social factors related to racial disparities in premature birth. March of Dimes is also strongly committed to the goal set by Healthy People 2020, the public health objectives for the nation, to eliminate disparities in perinatal health. March of Dimes is working toward the reduction of disparities in birth outcomes in Florida. One of the goals of the strategic mission investment in Florida is to obtain a 2 percent overall decrease in the preterm birth disparity between black babies and white babies by the end of 2015. Working toward this goal, the Florida chapter recently partnered with REACHUP, whose goal is to help communities achieve equality in health care and positive health for families, and funded two workshops in Tampa devoted to undoing racism and affirming fatherhood. March of Dimes Florida is also involved with other organizations that target minority groups, such as the sorority Zeta Phi Beta, whose Storks Nest program aims to prevent birth defects and infant mortality among black women and to promote healthy behaviors during pregnancy. The program keeps an inventory of essential supplies for moms and babies and provides incentives that motivate women to adopt healthy behaviors and lifestyles. In addition to engaging in advocacy efforts for minority health and other programs concerned with health disparities, the March of Dimes awards grants to support research and programs that benefit minority populations. The March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. It is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. For more than 75 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines and breakthroughs. For the latest resources and information, visit marchofdimes.org. Joint Commission issues gold seal to NCH programAn NCH team of hundreds led by about 20 colleagues in our joint replacement program recently earned the gold seal of approval from the Joint Commission. Only about 250 of the nations 5,000-plus hospitals have earned the gold seal for total hip and total knee replacement surgery. Certification is the best signal to our community that the care we provide makes for exceptional outcomes for the patients we serve. More than 2,000 people come to us for total joint replacement surgery each year. Both our downtown and North Naples campuses have 32 newly renovated, state-of-art rooms (at North Naples, we have our Cerner partners Smart Rooms). Patients and families are encouraged to participate in a comprehensive preoperative joint replacement educational program to guide them through the process, allay anxiety and manage expectations. Our care teams provide post-operative pain management using multimodal pain medication. Aggressive mobilization and individualized rehabilitation start the day of the procedure, with most patients walking within hours of finishing surgery. Individualized discharge planning starts at admission and utilizes many community resources to provide continuity of care. For more than a decade, NCH has been among the highest volume systems in the nation for total joint replacements, and we continue to grow, with one in eight patients coming for surgery from outside our five-county region, typically from the upper Midwest and Northeast. Our length of stay and incidence of post-op complications are below the national average. Patient satHEALTHY LIVING allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org SEE WEISS, A29

Seeking to put Gods love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickMy stepmother called me in a panic. She had left the sliding door open in the guest room so a visiting cat could get some fresh air, and the cat clawed a hole in the screen and disappeared. Everyone whos had a lost pet, including myself, knows that boulder-in-thestomach feeling. One of our cats got out of the house when we had workmen there, and our cavalier Darcy also made an unauthorized excursion. Fortunately, both came back on their own (the cat after three days, and Darcy after a couple of hours), but not without frantic searching on our parts. If your pet has gone AWOL, dont wait around hoping for a Lassie return. The quicker you take action, the better your chances of finding your pet. Heres what to do. As soon as you discover your pet is missing, put up large fluorescent-colored posters big enough that people driving by can see and read them. Use what missing-pet expert Kat Albrecht calls the 5 + 55 rule: five words that people driving by at 55 miles per hour can read. For instance: REWARD LOST BLACK/ WHITE CAT. Those are five words that a passerby driving on a major road can interpret, visualize, remember and convey to others, Albrecht says. Check the website lostapet.org for information on making an effective poster and flier. Other online resources include Fido Finder (fidofinder. com), K9 Alert (k9alert. com), LostPetUSA.net, Missing Pet Network (missingpet.net), Tabbytracker.com, The Center for Lost Pets (thecenterforlostpets.com) and Pet FBI (petfbi.org). Go door to door and let neighbors know that your pet is missing. Bring a photo so theyll know what she looks like. If you live in a guard-gated association, notify security staff so they can keep an eye out for your pet as they make their rounds. The mail carrier is another person who travels through your neighborhood daily and can watch for your pet. Check the shelter right away. If there is more than one shelter in your area, check all of them more than once. Leave a description of your pet and your contact information. Search your yard and the surrounding area thoroughly. Cats, in particular, may hide underneath shrubbery or decks, or squeeze into spaces where you think they cant possibly fit. Dogs may simply be shut up inside a shed, garage or closet, waiting patiently to be released. Ask neighbors for permission to search their yards as well.Leave out food and water to encourage your pet to return. The familiar smell and hunger may draw him out of hiding. Pets are highly attuned to sound. Walk around the neighborhood calling them. Stand in the yard and make sounds associated with mealtime, such as shaking a food bag or running the electric can opener. Use social media to spread the word. Your neighborhood or city may have a website or Facebook page where you can post the information. Accidents happen. You can never guarantee that your dog or cat wont become lost, but you can take easy, inexpensive steps to increase the likelihood that hell come home safely: Microchip him. License him (cats, too). Keep a collar with an up-to-date ID tag on him. Register him with a microchip registration company and keep your address and phone number updated. Keep a good, up-to-date, full-body color photo on hand for use on fliers.My stepmothers lost cat? As my stepniece stood out on the deck at twilight calling for her a few days later, Miss Kitty came flying across the lawn and back into the arms of her very happy young owner. A microchip can help ensure your pet is returned to you if hes ever lost.

I mean, I get the true meaning of Christmas and all, and I dug deep to feel the warmth and love, but the truth is I went down for the count the day before Christmas Eve with what best could be described and Im fairly sure the Centers for Disease Control came up with the official name as The Christmas Crud. You know the drill: It started out with a slightly sore throat that rapidly turned into a pesky post-nasal drip and then rendered me unable to move from my bed. Twas the night before Christmas and it felt like an evil elf had poured Elmers Glue into my sinus cavity, while my teeth chattered and my body shivered through an almost 104-degree fever. The gloomy Flu Grinch stole Christmas. But, I rallied! I drank 17,000 gallons of water, slept every chance I got and I recovered. Afterward, while people chatted at parties and events about the various maladies infecting Southwest Florida (a plethora of flu strains, lots of bronchitis and sinus infections, and rampant head colds), I felt invincible. I had battled what felt like Typhoid and survived. I deserved to be on the cover of Prevention magazine. I was the picture of health. And yet, as I write this missive, theres a box of Puffs Plus by my side and a mound of used tissues at my feet, and my throat feels like its lined with sandpaper. It started four days ago and shows no sign of making a graceful exit. So, if and when I recover (for the second time in a month) from this yuckiness, I plan to employ some serious preventative measures to avoid this plight again. I love huggers they are very dear, affectionate people but when it comes to folks I barely know, I am not a hugger. Still, I dont want to hurt the huggers feelings (they have a LOT of feelings), so I hug anyway. From now on, if someone Ive just met comes at me with outstretched arms, Im going to tell her that I was recently bit by a mosquito in Bora Bora and physical contact is off limits, doctors orders. I thought avoiding friendly handshakes would be a problem, but Ive recently read that because its impossible to get plastic surgery on her hands, and theyre starting to look old, Madonna has taken to wearing gloves. I think this could be a very stylish new trend and it could help prevent us from using up sick days and missing soirees. Since most of these viruses are airborne, Im realizing that breathing in public can be hazardous. Surgical masks are effective, but theyre neither fetching nor friendly looking. But what about colorful/sparkly/cute scarves? Well look a little less compulsive if we cover our noses and mouths with something designer, right? Theres way too much happening in February, and I wont spend it on the sofa looking pallid and pathetic. I have faith in my solutions, but Im not averse to bedazzling a Hazmat suit either. Socialize safely, Southwest Florida. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 4, 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Keeping an eye on government borrowingMany investors are U.S. equity and/ or global equity centric for various reasons. It might be that their investing passion is equities; their greatest historical appreciation in an asset class has been equities; in retirement, they are pension dependent and pension funds are heavily exposed to equities; equities make a very interesting story for columnists and publications; a slight drop in world equity markets makes headlines quite easily; etc. While equities might be sexier than bonds, the reality is that the global bond market is a lot larger than the global equity market. It makes intuitive sense that the global bond market is bigger than the global equity market. Equity is an expensive form of capital for any corporation. In fact, it is the most expensive form of capital. If a company is expected to grow and do well, it is better off to borrow money to finance that growth than offer participation through equity ownership (i.e., through the sale of equity/stock). Historically, the yields required by debt holders has been appreciably less that the total return expected by equity holders. So, all things being equal (which they never are), non-governmental entities prefer to issue debt rather than sell equity. Debt issuance, not equity issuance, is the capital markets funding source used by governments. Equity cannot be issued by governments. States and municipalities cannot issue equity in their local governments. Buyers of assets want to take advantage of leverage opportunities. Most buyers of assets, including individuals, like to use debt/leverage to fund purchases like property and equipment. So, while equities seemingly get all the investment attention, the quiet megatrillion gorilla in the room is really the global bond market. And to the surprise of many, the global bond market has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past several years much more than the global equity markets. According to the Bank of International Settlements Quarterly Review (March 2014) Global debt markets have grown to an estimated $100 trillion (in amounts outstanding) in mid-2013 up from $70 trillion in mid-2007. Growth has been uneven across the main market segments. Active issuance by governments and non-financial corporations has lifted the share of domestically issued bonds, whereas more restrained activity by financial institutions has held back international issuance. And of this whopping $100 trillion, how much was government versus corporate versus other issuer debt? It is largely government debt coming up to about some $43 trillion whilst nonfinancial corporations (meaning debt of non-bank corporations) was some $10 trillion by mid-2013. The $43 trillion in government debt has grown from approximately $25 trillion in 2007, per BIS. (Fast forward to January 2015. Surely those numbers are larger than 2013s and given what is happening outside the U.S., it is likely that those government debt numbers will get even bigger. According to the Zero Hedge blog March 9, 2014, this astronomical increase in government debt has not been matched with an increase in global equity values over the same period. between the last bubble peak, and mid-2013, there has been a $3.86 trillion decline in the value of equities to $53.8 trillion over this six year time period, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Should investors be worried? For sure. They should be worried about where this money has gone, and has it been used wisely/productively? Has it gone into equity markets? They should be worried about whether the government issuers have the capacity to repay and can actually control their futures. They should be worried about what will happen to these governments if and when interest rates rise. Martin Armstrong, an international economist, is worried about the government bond market. When government credit worthiness deteriorates, it will be harder for governments to finance themselves through bond issuance. Mr. Armstong wrote in his blog post of Oct. 22, 2014, The stats show that the total size of the world stock market capitalizations closed 2013 at $54.6 trillion which was only 25 percent of the total world market. The capitalization the rest being bonds. The bond market is larger than the stock market for various reasons. Whereas only corporations issue stocks, governments and corporations both issue fixed income securities. The U.S. Treasury is the largest issuer of bonds worldwide. Because U.S, Treasury bonds provide the bulk of reserves which are just over $30 trillion. This is the real bond bubble. Capital is so accustomed to just hiding in bonds, it knows no other alternative. Consult with your adviser and review your allocations to equites, bonds and alternative asset classes. Also, review your exposure to government bonds. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems. Find her on Facebook at Jeannette Showalter, CFA.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 4, 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY M-F 8-5 and Sat 8-12 2240 Davis Blvd., Naples, FL 34104Complete Collision Repair 24 Hour Towing RentalsMention our ad in Florida Weekly and get a rental car UP TO 3 DAYS FREE.(with collision repair services)239-775-6860 www.economybodyshop.com firstname.lastname@example.org was 16 and I was 14, says Sarah Beyrent, a Neapolitan, a mother of five, and the co-owner with her husband, Gabriel, of Pop Toy in Naples. When you come in, it feels like an old mom-and-pop toy store. You dont feel like you went to a warehouse and you dont feel like you went to school. We let kids ride stuff around the store. Its fun. Fun or not, small-business toy stores just like the big boxes and the international corporations have to compete against two relatively new forces in the world: electronics, which inhabit a vast market aimed at kids with games that are not toys in any classic sense; and online sales of toys. The competition of online sales at Amazon and elsewhere is the primary reason Toys R Us, which went private for $6.6 billion in 2005, has seen a steady decline in its own holiday sales for the last three years, according to a recent Bloomberg Business news report. In the face of all that, the non-franchise toy stores are not exactly endangered, but they are facing a challenge to define and redefine their value for each generation. That value is based on a concept that is unchanging in the toy business: play. The fundamental value of play for children has not changed our stores and owners fundamentally believe that play is one of the foundation tools of a healthy childs development, says Kathleen McHugh, president of the Chicagobased American Specialty Toy Retailing Association. Known as ASTRA, the association of 1,600 small-business toy stores in the United States helps promote their interests in the face of big box stores and the on-line toy business. Referring to an old-time wooden toy now considered an antique a cat on wheels with a tail that moves back and forth when a child pulls it across the floor by a string, which might be found in a small solo store Ms. McHugh says that playing with such a toy builds different skill sets, like being able to walk and do something else at the same time. The things a child does with a toy help to create brain structure and motor skills. Toys are social, theyre tools that help teach how to share, how to lose, how to win. Some are good for certain developmental points in the lives of girls or boys they can help children reach the different milestones in their lives. But not if you cant touch them, or if someone isnt there to show you how to use them or let you see how they work. Thats the virtue of the single store. We dont try to compete with online prices, but for those who dont want the hassle of online, or the uncertainty, we have value, says Mary Dondero, owner of Cheshire Cat Fine Toys in Fort Myers. Everything in our store is open or can be. You cant touch online. One of the major problems for the small toy store now is the increasingly common belief of many parents that they can put their children in front of an electronic screen and think of them as playing, which isnt the case, argues Ms. McHugh. There are synapses that go off in your head as your brain is developing, triggered by simple things like blocks. When children shape them or form them, their brains are firing like crazy. That physical play is essential, but whats different now is that a lot of parents think that the same can be true by using electronic toys so theyll theyll get a tablet that has an electronic game on it. But its not true. When Mrs. Dondero started Cheshire Cat more than 30 years ago, there were only toys from Walmart and Kmart, there wasnt even a Toys R Us in Fort Myers, she recalls. There were a lot of inexpensive plastic toys, and some quality toys sold in specialty stores. Over the years mass-market stores caught on to quality toys they carry some lines now. But in those stores, its like theres never anyone there. It takes forever to find anything in age appropriate categories. And clerks may not be as educated, as interested or as passionate about the business as the owners of small toy stores. Mrs. Dondero, for example, studied childrens literature and psychology as an undergraduate in college, then earned a masters degree in urban planning before embracing toys toys and the kind of mental play that includes childrens books, which she also sells in her store, based on her own literate sensibilities and wide experience. Books are still the things most enchanting to me, she explains. Among her favorite, which she still has from her childhood, and which she adds to her collection in the store: The Secret Garden, or the Anne of Green Gables series, or all the Nancy Drew mystery stories we read everything as children. Now I often pair up a book with a soft toy, or something. It makes the gift special. For such companies as Lego or Playmobil, the special is in a concept or early design such as the hand-sized, basic figure of Playmobil, a toy designed by the late Hans Beck with a ace based on the drawings of children (round, big eyes, mouth, no nose) and then moved into international sales by Horst Brandstatter, who also made the shift from metal to plastic in the 1970s. He still controls the company, which has also moved into a line of self-watering plastic plant pots while staging the elaborate theme parks in Europe and Palm Beach Gardens. For owners such as the Beyrents at Pop Toy, competing with big box stores that sell Legos or Playmobil and can order by the truckload is tough but sometimes possible. The trick, Mrs. Beyrent says, is knowing the toy and knowing the market. Legos are hard to compete with most little toy stores do not touch it. But if you do it right and know your market, you can get in a real competitive range with Lego, which weve managed to do. The margin on Legos is ridiculously low. Their margin is 20 percent less than all other toys we sell. But Lego, like Playmobil, helps attract customers who then become store groupies of a kind, asking her to order special things theyve learned about, or delighting in her own purchases based on what she sees in Germany, or Hong Kong or elsewhere she might travel for trade shows. While thats something that gives small-business owners a lego-up, perhaps, they also face another problem that has become both economic and political, says Kathleen McHugh an uneven playing field created by the disparity in sales taxes. Most providers of Amazon dont pay or have to collect sales tax at the transaction, she says. So theyre kind of robbing communities of taxes that go to fund services, and the toy stores in those communities that pay rent and provide jobs do pay the taxes. Its a great convenience but it has a dark side. Sometimes we have up to a 10 percent disadvantage. That would be in Illinois, for example, where the sales tax is 10 percent. In Florida, its a 6 percent disadvantage. So we founded an organization called Advocates for Independent Business were lobbying Congress or were doing it state by state.

Choosing a BrokerageIf youre new to investing, you probably need a brokerage, and even if you already have one, you might want to seek a better one. Opening a brokerage account is not much more complicated than opening a bank account. But before you do so, consider these factors as you compare brokerages and choose the one that best meets your needs. Costs. You dont need to spend a lot per trade, as plenty of terrific brokerages charge $10 or less. Look into what other fees are charged, too (IRA fees, wire transfer fees, account inactivity fees, annual fees, etc.). Minimum initial deposit. Some brokerages require at least several thousand dollars to open an account, while others have no minimum. Usability and service. If you plan to use a brokerages online trading interface, check it out and see how easy it is to use. Ask questions of customer service to see how responsive they are. Banking services. Some brokerages now offer check-writing, money market accounts, credit cards, ATM cards, direct deposits and more. Research. See what free research reports on companies a brokerage provides. You can find lots of free research available online, too. Mutual fund offerings. Many brokerages offer a variety of mutual funds. If youre interested in particular funds, check to see which brokerages offer them. Know, though, that you can usually purchase no-load mutual funds directly from their companies, too. Non-stock offerings. If youre interested in bonds, for example, see whether theyre offered. Convenience. If youd rather do your business in person, see if the brokerage has local offices. Some are online-only. These factors are not equally important. For example, if you trade only twice a year, commission costs shouldnt matter too much. List the services and features you need and then evaluate each contender. For more on brokerages, visit broker.fool.com and brokerage-review.com. Next week well tackle kinds of orders. Bad BondsIn 1997, an ad in a church newspaper announced bonds that were paying 10.55 percent at a time when CDs were paying half that, or less. The cause was good, so I invested $1,000 in two-year bonds. Just before maturity, I received a letter that payment of the interest and principal would be delayed. Well, time passed, and I got more letters explaining delays (and also asking for donations!). I never got my 10.55 percent. D.M., via emailThe Fool Responds: You might have noticed that the lowest interest rates you can get are often tied to government securities, such as Treasuries. Thats because theyre so low-risk. If riskier governments (such as shaky states or towns) or companies want to borrow money, they have to offer higher rates in order to entice investors away from low-risk ones. Some of the highest rates around are for junk bonds, which belong to those corporations or organizations most likely to default. These days, some worry about junk bonds tied to shale oil ventures defaulting due to the falling price of oil. Always factor risk into your decisions. A Streaming Giant for Risk TakersNetflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) has been an extremely volatile stock, scaring many away while retaining loyal believers. In the streaming video giants third-quarter earnings report, management missed its subscriber target and for the first time projected a year-over-year slowdown in U.S. member growth for the fourth quarter. That suggested that Netflix was near a saturation point in its biggest market.But in its just-reported fourth quarter, Netflix topped forecasts, adding 4.3 million streaming subscribers globally and posting year-over-year revenue growth of 25 percent.While international growth promises to dramatically expand Netflixs market, hefty profits from that business arent here yet. The company has more than 57 million global members as of its fourth quarter. In the U.S., members top 39 million, more than a third of all households, and Netflix is aiming for 60 million to 90 million subscribers domestically. Trends favor the company, too, with TV viewing declining and Netflix being the top destination for Internet users. Netflixs future is far from certain, but if you can be patient, the company might reward you well in the long run. Its stock was more of a bargain before its strong fourth-quarter report, but risk-takers might want to take a stake in it, or perhaps add it to a watch list, hoping for a pull-back in price. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Netflix.) In 1984, my founder sold his 1972 Camaro Z28 for $2,800 to help save his fathers tavern, and began selling pizzas out of the back of the bar. In 1985 he opened his first restaurant in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Today, with more than 4,600 restaurants, including 1,200 in 36 foreign countries and territories, Im the worlds thirdlargest pizza delivery company. I rake in about $3 billion annually from both company-owned and franchised locations and am a sponsor of the NFL and Super Bowl. More than 50 percent of my U.S. sales come from digital and mobile orders. Who am I? (Answer: Papa Johns International) Reasonable ExpectationsQWhat kind of long-term return should I expect in stocks? R.J., Corona, CaliforniaAYou cant know for sure, but over many decades, the stock market has averaged close to a 10 percent annual return. Over just a few decades, though, it can offer less. Over the past 20 years, the S&P 500 has averaged 7.7 percent, and over the past 30, its closer to 9 percent. (For the real return, subtract the rate of inflation, which has historically averaged around 3 percent annually.)Those returns reflect investments in the overall stock market, not in various individual stocks. Each individual company might end up trouncing or underperforming the market. You can hope to beat the markets average return by carefully selecting individual stocks or mutual funds or just settle for the markets return, via an index fund. ***QWhat does pro forma mean? B.E., Shallowater, TexasAThe term pro forma on a financial statement means that youre looking at some what if numbers. Imagine that PepsiCo merged with Boeing last May. At the end of the merged companys fiscal year in December, you might see some pro forma financial statements in the PepsiCo-Boeing annual report. These would show you the state of the firm over the year as if it had been a combined company all year long.Pro forma results can be useful. If you were researching PepsiCoBoeing, it wouldnt be too meaningful to contrast a pre-merger periods results with post-merger results. By examining combined results, you can get a clearer idea of the companys financial health. Sometimes, though, companies have taken pro forma statements too far, showing positive earnings results that they would have had if various bad things hadnt happened. Got a question for the Fool?

Dan and Nicole SmithThe CloseNew Jersey couple happy they took the risk on Naples BY ARTIS HENDERSONFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAlthough Dan Smith was born in Fort Lauderdale, the 36-year-old tax attorney spent most of his life living in New Jersey. Thats where he met his wife, Nicole, 29, and where the two settled with a lease on an apartment, steady jobs and daily commutes into Manhattan. The only problem? They just didnt like the city lifestyle. When Dans parents bought a condo in North Naples, the Smiths flew down for visits and always found themselves asking afterward, Wouldnt it be great if we lived there? Last fall, the couple decided to find out. They quit their jobs, packed up their belongings and moved into Dans parents condo while his mother and father were in New Jersey. That took the immediate pressure off the property search, but the couple still needed to find a home of their own. They had been looking at real estate on and off for two years, and finally they began the search in earnest. The couple started by looking on Zillow for a real estate agent, and they decided to go with the one with the highest number of positive reviews: Chris Spina, an independent REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY WEEK OF JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 4, 2015 B8 16656 Lucarno Way, Mediterra COURTESY PHOTOS SEE CLOSE, B28

The Smiths told Mr. Spina exactly what they were looking for: a two-bedroom-plus-den for less than $350,000. They liked gated communities, and they wanted a house with a pool. Mr. Spina started by showing them a three-bedroom, two-bath villa in the Tuscany Cove development in North Naples. Priced at $264,900, the villa had been built in 2006 and was in good condition. The Smiths liked the property, but it was the first house theyd seen since they started looking seriously. They felt like they should consider a few more options before making an offer. After inspecting other properties on the market, they realized that the Tuscany Cove villa was a good fit. But by then it was too late. Another buyer had made an offer, and the property sold f or $255, 000. Soon afterward, the couple considered several homes in south Naples. They liked an 1,800-square-foot, threebedroom-plus-den, three-bath home in Sable Lakes on the market for $280,000. The home was larger and more affordable than ones theyd seen in North Naples, but the commute to work would be longer and Dan hoped to live closer to his parents condominium. Ultimately, the Smiths decided to pass. At this point, they noticed a common pattern: Newer homes in desirable North Naples locations sold quickly, often at the asking price. The couple realized that if they wanted a shot at the right home, they would have to act decisively. Dan began monitoring the online real estate listings every hour; as soon as something new came on the market he saw it. Thats how he found a 1,500-square-foot detached villa in the gated community of Ibis Cove. The house had two bedrooms plus a den, two bathrooms and a pool. Built in 2002, it came with oak wood flooring and turquoise paint accents that combined to create the feel of a beach cottage. From the photos alone, Dan suspected it was the right house. He called Mr. Spina and they went for a viewing immediately. Already, another couple was there. The house looked as good in person as in the online photos, and this time the Smiths didnt hesitate. The owners asked $294,900, and the Smiths offered $287,000 with a $2,000 credit at closing. The owners counter-offered $290,000 plus a $2,000 credit at closing. The Smiths accepted, and they closed soon afterward. Now that theyve settled into their Southwest Florida lifestyle, its worth asking: Was the move the right decision? Absolutely, the couple says. They like their new community a mix of young families and retirees and every month the weather just gets better. We knew it was a risk, Dan says, but if you dont take any risks, then you wont get to where you want to be. And where do they want to be? Exactly where they are. CLOSEFrom page 8 COURTESY PHOTOSThe Smiths decided to pass on this home in Sabal Lakes in hopes of finding something closer to Mr. Smiths parents condominium. This 1,500-square-foot detached villa in Ibis Cove is where the Smiths call home.The first property the Smiths looked at, a villa in Tuscany Cove, was sold by the time they decided they wanted to take a second look.

C5 SEE OPERA, C4 Friends of Opera Naples were introduced to the companys new home, the David and Cecile Wang Opera Center, during a grand opening celebration for patrons and board member earlier this month. Today is a historic day, Roger Baker, a member of the ON board of directors, said at the Jan. 12 ribbon cutting. Whats beautiful is that we have everyone under one roof and we own it. The rest of the areas opera fans have their first chance to see the new center when ON presents Mozarts Cosi fan Tutti on Thursday, Feb. 5, and Saturday, Feb. 7. The opera house boasts 8,000 square feet and accommodates ONs administrative offices, classroom and rehearsal spaces and a black box theater that has Naples largest ballet floor at 4,000 square feet, collapsible seating for 286 people and a flexible stage. The company plans to vastly expand the scope and variety of its performances to include chambersized operatic productions, recitals, master classes and educational programs. Outside organizations will also be able to rent the facility for rehearsal and meeting space. At 2408 Linwood Drive in the Bayshore/Gateway Triangle Redevelopment Zone, the building is hoped to be a centerpiece in the countys effort the revitalize the neighborhood sandwiched between Davis Boulevard and U.S. 41. ON purchased the building, which once housed the Naples English Pub and several commercial townhouses, several years ago for $2.1 million with a major grant from David and Cecile Wang. While Mr. Wang was happy to help the company achieve a permanent residence, he is mostly interested in creating a building that is an asset to the surrounding neighborhood. Im particularly intrigued by this property, he said. It sits smack in the middle of a blighted community. Its an asset, to me, as significant as providing a home for Opera Naples. Now that renovations are completed, the company plans to provide fine arts education and training to the community, namely children and youths, with a neighborhood Cosi fan Tutte will christen new center for Opera Naples COURTESY PHOTOThe Food Networks Alton Brown is coming to the Mann Hall in Fort Myers. SEE BROWN, C4 BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@ oridaweekly.comTHE ULTIMATE FOODIE THINKS HE HAS FOUND A recipe for success on the road. But before he says anything else, Alton Brown wants you to know something as his Edible Inevitable Tour rolls in to the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall on Thursday, Feb. 5. Its very much a family show. Its designed for people to bring the whole family, he says by phone from Atlanta. The kids and teens seem to laugh as much as grandparents. Thats a good thing, too. Im finally getting to show my mom that the theater degree is paying off, he says. Truth be told, that degree probably paid for itself long before he became known for hosting Good Eats and serving as commentator on Iron Chef America and Cutthroat Kitchen, all on the Food Network. The shortest time Ive spent is as a culinarian, he says with a laugh. I didnt evolve from a cook to an entertainer.Alton Brown show offers food for thoughtBY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.com

We met at a bar over drinks, though Sergio seemed way too young for me. He had a handsome face and a buff body, and he was dressed in a tough-looking leather jacket that I liked. In fact, his entire image looked tough very New York with hints of an Italian ancestry the kind that suggests his relatives own a pizzeria. Or work for the mob. Maybe both. Sergio and I hit it off, and I felt flattered that this very cute, very young man seemed to be chatting me up. When I told him what I do, he said, Maybe you can give me some dating advice. Feeling bold, I tucked a loose strand of hair behind my ear and leaned forward. Id be happy to, I said. He looked at me earnestly, and I held my breath as I waited to hear what he would say. Im having trouble meeting men. Do what? I started to stutter a response then realized I didnt know what to say. I sat up straight, all trace of coyness gone. Wait. So you mean . ? Oh, yeah, Sergio said, nodding. Im gay. But But what? Did the fact that he wore a leather jacket mean he couldnt be gay? Or that he looked tough and Italian? Or that he was having a conversation with me? No, of course not. None of those things. I had just let my own hopes get in the way. Heres my advice, I told him. Buy a lapel pin. Sergio looked confused. A lapel pin? Something to let people know exactly what youre searching for. He shook his head doubtfully, and I knew he was right. If only it were that easy. One of the trickiest parts about dating is that we never know what were coming up against. In bars, in nightclubs, in the places where people meet and mingle, its impossible to sum up someone without talking to him or her, without first diving in and exposing our interest. And that leads to a lot of blunders. Wouldnt it be easier if everyone wore labels, a shortcut to figuring out whos on the market? This Valentines Day, the inaugural Stoplight Run at JetBlue Park just might help ease us in that direction. True, the event doesnt designate whos gay and whos straight youll still have to wade into those fraught waters on your own but its designed to at least let you know whos available. Described as a fun run and party that promotes healthiness while allowing you to search for that special someone, the 5K sets out at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 14, from the ballpark in South Fort Myers and finishes back at home plate, where the fun lasts until 7 p.m., with live bands, craft beer from six local b reweries (including a free sampling bar) and more. Theres even an after-party at House of Brewz at Gulf Coast Town Center nearby. Everyone arrives dressed in a signal color: red for coupled, green for single and yellow for those who call themselves somewhere in the middle (personally, Id steer clear of them). Participants will have a chance to stretch, warm up, warm down, hydrate, refuel all those things sporty people do while flirting with those you know are free to flirt back. The run benefits the American Heart Association, so its also for a good cause. Come out, and perhaps we can all make one less romantic mistake.

Mr. Brown spent nearly a decade working in the film business as a cameraman and video director he was on the team that produced REMs The One I Love before he got bored and left the business to study cooking at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont. Hey, a guys gotta eat. It is with that in mind that he has combined his love of food with his ability to entertain. Ive wanted to do a live stage show for the last 10 years. I didnt have time to mount it and didnt know the right people, he says. When I put Good Eats out to pasture in 2011 or so, I was looking for what was next. What was next is a two-hour show that blends standup, food experimentation (ponchos are provided for folks in the front rows), talk show antics, a lecture and live music. Music? Its a culinary variety show. Its scary, he says. I hadnt written or performed music in 20 years, so I had to learn to do that again. I write music, play guitar and sing, which is scary. A review last year by the Chicago Tribune noted, Brown is a mediocre singer and very basic musician. But Mr. Brown says his show has grown. Its a thrill to be able to build on things. The show has evolved a fair amount, especially. Technology allows us to change, he says. Being on the road for a while gives him an opportunity to see what works and what doesnt, he says. The music evolved a lot. Theres a song that was almost a country western song, then I rewrote it as a rap number and its hilarious, he says, adding, The shows a very different show than it was a year ago. One thing that has not changed is audience participation with that, performers cannot predict what will happen onstage. Mr. Brown remembers one show. The second act was a lady, a nice lady in her 60s, and she turned out to be drunk and she was hilarious. She got me laughing so hard that I laid down on the stage and laughed, he says. The lecture component of his show includes a segment he bills as, 0 things Im pretty sure Im sure about food. Its a theme thats in the headlines everyday. I think that anybody who gets up and talks about food better be talking about nutrition in some way, he says. It also is a theme that is important to him. We need to cook our own food, which needs to be mostly vegetables and we need to move our butts. You gotta eat right and youve got to move. Theres no mystery. Cook your food, he says. If I could get Americans to cook three meals a week, wed be so much healthier than we were. It all goes back to having healthy eating practices. Weve also allowed ourselves to say obesity is a disease. Cancer is a disease. This is something we can control, he says. He acknowledges his own efforts to keep his weight under control. Its a daily struggle, an ever ongoing struggle. Im not going to lie. My body wants to be heavy. If I give it an opportunity to gain weight, it will. Sometimes I let it get out of hand. But Im trying to wrangle it back, he says. Cooking remains central to Mr. Brown. I cook every day whether I have a chance or not. I cant go more than a few days without cooking or I feel like Im losing myself, he says. I cook every night in the buses we travel in. I prep the food every night for the show. He will cook in a hotel suite or on the tour bus. We grill. Its kind of like a caveman on wheels, he says. We also spend a good bit of time eating local food. He wont say where he eats when hes on the road in Florida. Im a huge fan of old school Florida cuisine and Im absolutely rabid about Cuban cuisine, he says. I really have a taste for the seafood we used to get. He remembers his grandparents preparing smoked fish. I like whatever is coming out of the water right there, he says. Thats Florida. The day he spoke from home, he was preparing French onion soup. Its cold in Atlanta and Ive been working on a new recipe, he says. Really? Its a secret, he says. I found that the best way to perfect my French onion soup was born out of a mistake. And the lesson? Every mistake is a wonderful opportunity. choir and expanded class options. ON currently has a mentorship program for performers 20-32 years old, a summer youth program that focuses on preparing and performing a production and a sponsorship program to develop the talents of local children. We were so limited with space, lighting and furnishings, said Robin Frank, the companys education outreach coordinator. From my perspective, my favorite part (of the new opera house) is having our own space so we can have regular programs for kids and youth. It was hard to do without our own space.Cosi fan Tutte and moreOpera Naples Artistic Director Ramon Tebar will conduct both upcoming performances of Cosi fan Tutte The opera buffa with an Italian libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte and music by Mozart premiered in Vienna in 1790. Modern critics recognize its music as some of Mozarts finest, and the opera has become one of his most popular and performed works. The ON production features soprano Isabel Rey and mezzo-soprano Leah Summers as sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella, tenor Joshua Dennis as Ferrando, baritone Joo Won Kang as Guglielmo, bass Adam Lau as Don Alfonso and soprano Amy Owens as Despina.

KitvanWagner Naples Players ready for RedThe Naples Players present the Tony Award-winning drama Red Feb. 4-28 in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre in downtown Naples. Winner of the 2010 Tony for Best Play, Red explores the compelling and vulnerable relationship between an artist and his creations as he fights for relevance in the art community. Famed abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just received the biggest commission in the history of modern art: a series of murals to be hung in the newly built Four Seasons restaurant. Working feverishly, the celebrated artist continually challenges the artistic point of view of his eager new assistant, Ken. When Ken challenges the master however, Rothko is compelled to contemplate his own artistic significance. Mark Vanagas stars as Rothko, and Peter Brian Kelly plays Ken. Barry Cavin, professor of theater at Florida Gulf Coast University, directs. Mr. Vanagas most recently played multiple characters in The Naples Players production of The Mystery of Irma Vep and played Thenardier in the companys Les Miserables. Red marks Mr. Kellys debut with The Naples Players. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, where he received a bachelors degree in theater performance.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 29-FEBRUARY 4, 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYMidlife maladies at Gulfshore PlayhouseVanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Which of these four is not like the others? Which one of these does not belong? If you know your Chekhov heck, even if you dont youll immediately name Spike. And if you see Christopher Durangs Tony Award-winning play, youll see just how painfully Spike is unalike. Hes nave, untalented and about just as deep as an almost-evaporated puddle. Sure, hes good looking, but he doesnt question, doesnt think, doesnt grapple with lifes big questions. (As one character puts it: Sure hes attractive. Except for his personality, that is.) Spike certainly doesnt lie awake at night, wrestling with regrets, wondering if hes wasted his life. He lacks any self-awareness. According to American Theatre magazine, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike will be the most-produced play in the country this season. Locally, Florida Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers opened its season with it back in October. And now Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples is staging a production. The play revolves around siblings Vanya (Kraig Swartz) and Sonia (Maureen Silliman). Both in their 50s and living in Bucks County, PA., the brother and sister spent 15 years taking care of their dying parents, who named all their children after Chekhov characters. Now, they continue to share their childhood home, in that squabbling yet companionable, love/hate way that siblings have. Their movie-star sister Masha (Amy Van Nostrand) shows up with boy-toy Spike (Shane Andries) on her arm. Glamorous and vain, shes also in her 50s, but at 29, hes an entire generation younger. A buff, wannabe actor, Spike sees any occasion as an opportunity to disrobe and display his body. Ms. Van Nostrands character comes across as brittle; I wish there were a bit more warmth to Marsha, a little more reason for the audience to like her. Mr. Andries, on the other hand, doesnt push his character far enough. Yes, hes incredibly dumb and selfabsorbed, but the actor misses some laughs he could have gotten with him, such as making a sexy reverse striptease even sexier, or being even more hamhanded reenacting his audition for a role on Entourage 2. The humor of this play is tricky, and maybe a little too slippery at times for this cast. The night I attended, there seemed to be many missed opportunities for getting laughs. The audience could be partially to blame; they didnt seem to get the humor of the play. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike contains great lines and absurd situations; it also contains constant shifts in tone, veering from humor to pathos back to humor again. At intermission, I overheard comments such as, Its not great. Its OK, and, I dont understand why this was the (2013) Best Play. Mr. Swartz, astounding in Gulfshores production of I Am My Own Wife, underplays his character. Even with a white beard, he seems too young for the role. (The script says hes 57, but if I heard correctly, the dialogue was changed to make him 54. Im a notoriously poor judge of age, but even 54 seems to be pushing it for this character.) Vanya has a wonderful monologue in which he eulogizes how life used to be and all the things he misses, even the things he confesses werent that great. Im worried about the future. I miss the past, he says. He rants well, but I never once believed he ever watched Howdy Doody or wrote letters or watched Bishop Sheen sermonize on TV. He just seems way too young. Maureen Silliman, as Sonia, though, is a delight. Initially mousy and selfdeprecating (Im easy to miss), she is full of surprises. She tosses out lines like velvet-covered hand grenades, seemingly innocuous but hitting their target. And shes just plain fun to watch, especially when she dresses up for a costume party as Maggie Smith on her way to the Oscars. (Costume designer Jennifer Bronsted works her magic here with a shimmery green sequined gown and tiara.) While in costume, Sonia transforms, and is absolutely giddy with joy. Her monologue in Act II, in the guise of a phone conversation, is the highlight of the play: funny, bittersweet, heartbreakingly hopeful. You find yourself cheering her on: God bless all the Late Bloomers in life, those who demonstrate that its never too late to fall in love or follow your dream. Its a wonderful piece of stagework. Ms. Silliman wowed audiences at the theaters New Works Festival last fall; I would gladly see anything in which she performs. Felicia Curry plays Cassandra, the siblings prophesying housecleaner. At times she seemed to rush her lines, but her scenes with a voodoo doll and her role as a weather reporter in Vanyas play redeem her. (Though the audience didnt seem to find humor in reports that chunks of Florida fell into the ocean during the end of the world, coupled with admonitions to move to the middle of the state.) And Jacklyn Collier plays to a T her role as a young, nave woman who wants to become an actor. Shes full of sickening enthusiasm and optimism, seeing the world as a series of continuous opportunities, all rainbows and sunshine forever. David Arsenaults set a morning room with wood beams and stone walls, with a backdrop of floor-to-ceiling windows is one of the best Ive seen on the Gulfshore Playhouse stage. And its coupled with David Upton and Eric Furbishs skilled lighting that treats us to a number of spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The view out the back of the morning room is like a Fairfield Porter painting come to life. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a great play about midlife angst, the fear that life has passed you by, the quiet desperation with which we all live, the 2 a.m. fears we dont express. Its a dark comedy, equal parts absurdity and truth. Why is the sight of two women weeping and wailing together so funny? It just is. Or maybe its funny because we also feel like weeping and wailing at life. Mr. Durang seems to suggest that although these dark nights of the soul arent pleasant, theyre necessary to build depth and character. If everyone took anti-depressants, Chekhov wouldnt have had anything to write about, Sonia says. Its a funny line, but true: If not for our internal struggles, wed all be as simple and mindless as Spike. All too often, though, it feels as if director Kristen Coury isnt quite sure what to do with her characters, or even where to place them on stage. Too many of them lack depth, and dont connect with each other. I adored Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike when I first saw it. Its an insightful and funny play. But in this production, unfortunately, its genius is not fully realized. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike>> When: Through Feb. 8 >> Where: Gulfshore Playhouse at The Norris Center, Naples >> Cost: Tickets start at $40 >> Info: (866) 811-4111 or gulfshoreplayhouse.org.

Just $20 CONTRACT BRIDGEA stitch in time saves nineBY STEVE BECKERLets say that youre declarer in a given hand and that if you adopt a certain line of play, youll be a strong favorite to make your contract. And lets assume that if you adopt a different line of play, you can become an even bigger favorite. Naturally, youll be better off in the long run if you choose the line of play that offers the greater chance of success. Thats pretty much the situation in the accompanying deal after you win Wests heart lead with the jack. Its tempting to tackle the diamonds at once by playing first the king and then the ace, hoping the opposing diamonds are divided 3-2. But if you did that in the actual case, youd go down one, assuming best defense. Now lets say youre the type of player who worries from the start that the diamonds might be divided 4-1 instead of 3-2, and that East might have the four diamonds. In that event, you could take steps to try to overcome the imagined 4-1 division. You would do this by leading a low spade to dummys king at trick two, followed by a low diamond toward your K-9. After East plays low, youd finesse the nine! You wouldnt expect to win the trick, but youd nevertheless be confident that nothing whatever could stop you from making at least nine tricks. As it happens, the nine would lose to Wests ten, but regardless of what he did next, youd be certain to make at least four notrump. In the actual deal, the safety play in diamonds assures the contract. It might have proven futile (if East had held the J-10-x-x of diamonds and put up the ten on the first lead from dummy), or it might have cost you a trick if the diamonds were divided 3-2, but it is nevertheless the right way to play the hand.

C14 WEEK OF JAN. 29-FEB. 4, 2015 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FILM CAPSULESBlackhat (Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Wei Tang) A cyber attack on a Chinese power plant prompts the U.S. and Chinese governments to work together to solve the crime with the help of a federal prisoner (Mr. Hemsworth). It shouldve been full of intrigue and suspense, but its really just a bore. Rated R.American Sniper (Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Kyle Gallner) Chris Kyle (Mr. Cooper), the most lethal sniper in American military history, serves four tours of duty as a Navy SEAL but is a distant husband and father. Mr. Coopers performance is fine, but director Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino) never finds a natural flow to the story, so no tension builds and it feels episodic. Rated R.Selma (David Oyelowo, C armen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson) In 1965 Alabama, Dr. Martin Luther King (Mr. Oyelowo) f ights with local leaders, police, and President Lyndon Johnson (Mr. Wilkinson) to secure voting rights for minorities. The story is tedious at times, but Mr. Oyel owos performance is stellar. Rated PG-13.Unbroken (Jack OConnell, Domhnall Gleeson, Miyavi) After crashing in the Pacific during WWII, Louis Zamperini (Mr. 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.Inherent Vice 1/2(Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson) In 1970s L.A., a detective (Mr. 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.The Gambler (Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, John Goodman) A literature professor (Mr. Wahlberg) gets into serious gambling debt and doesnt seem to care if he can find a way out. 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 (Mr. Freeman), Thorin (Mr. Armitage) and the men of Lake Town protect the Lonely Mountain from Orcs and Goblins.

Her latest album didnt sell, and now shes in the midst of another American Idol judging gig in which shes window dressing to the main attraction. But The Boy Next Door is her redemption. Her step back to stardom, to the A-list. To mattering again rather than being an afterthought. All she needs is one box office hit, because when youre a movie star, you can do anything, right? Wrong. Oh, my goodness, is this movie terrible. Atrocious. Its the kind of bad thatll make J-Lo go home to her peeps from the block to ponder what went wrong, only to receive blank stares and shoulder shrugs. How did she think The Boy Next Door was a good idea? Its Fatal Attraction for todays youthdriven, zeroattention-span generation. Its a movie that lacks so much logic and reason and sense that one could indeed check ones phone/ tablet every five minutes, update Twitter and check email, and not miss much of anything. Fatal Attraction was a biting look at affluence, infidelity and the dangers of a one-night stand with the wrong woman. It featured consenting adults who made an impassioned decision that turned out horribly for the male participant (Michael Douglas). In contrast, The Boy Next Door stars J-Lo as a schoolteacher and mom who has a one-night stand with someone (Ryan Guzman) slightly older than her son (Ian Nelson). Whereas in Fatal Attraction we might relate to an impulsive decision with a co-worker of similar age, its notably harder for a viewer to relate to schtooping the sexy hot teenager next door whos half your age. The message the movie seems to be sending is: Dont sleep with the teenager who lives next door. Hey thanks for that J-Lo Im sure I wouldnt have figured it out on my own. Worse, though, is how preposterous director Rob Cohens (The Fast and the Furious) film gets. In short order, hottie teen Noah goes from perfect to pugnacious as he tries to force J-Los Claire to live happily ever after with him. Given that shes a teacher at his school, and hes clearly a total psychopath, Claire relents. He then goes about inserting himself into her life in absurd ways, including threatening her son and estranged husband (John Corbett), spray-painting the walls of the school bathroom, hacking into her email, etc. He even threatens her friend and school vice principal Vicki (Kristen Chenoweth, mercifully providing comic relief). You would think someone would see Noah doing these awful things, and/or video cameras would capture his malfeasance in action, but that wouldve detracted from the climactic showdown in the barn, and we couldnt have that. Its painful and sad to watch Ms. Lopez slink her way through another role. Her once promising acting career (Selena, Out of Sight) has been fizzling for years; this clunker will continue to drown her future. Put it right next to Gigli among her worst. >> Although body doubles are often used when the face is not visible, Jennifer Lopez reportedly did her own sex scene. o h A l t t dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com naplesclubsushi.com 239.261.4332 Located at:2555 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103 Buy One, Get One 50% OffSpicy Tuna RollSpicy Tuna SashimiCalifornia Roll Club Sushi Grand-California Roll8-Piece Nigiri Chefs Choice Salmon Teriyaki DinnerShrimp Tempura & Vegetables Dinner Private Lunches Available for Small or Large Parties Lunch Specials Available for Carryout Catering Available NOW OPEN FOR LUNCH MONDAYFRIDAY 11:30 AM2:30 PM Not valid with other promotions.

Putnam. 320 pages. Hardcover, $26.95. Stranded, Alex Kavas recent Maggie ODell novel, introduced a fascinating character named Ryder Creed, an ex-Marine who has built a successful business near Pensacola as a canine search-and-rescue dog trainer. Ryders dogs can locate cadavers, captive or injured victims, drugs, explosives and so forth. With Breaking Creed, Ms. Kava launches a new series featuring Creed, though her Maggie ODell character is very much in the picture. As the novel opens, we meet 14-yearold Amanda and her handler, Leandro. Both protected and controlled by Leandro and a woman called Zapata, Amanda stays alive by swallowing dozens of condoms stuffed with cocaine. Readers get a quick glimpse of the horrid life led by kidnapped or runaway girls exploited as slaves in a drug distribution network. Then the scene shifts abruptly to one in which Creed is transported by Coast Guard helicopter to a cutter. Along the way, we learn how he has developed a business with multi-million dollar annual billings and an undesired high profile. Creeds exploits, followed in the popular media, have made him a new kind of pop culture star. His undercurrent motivation is the hope that he will find his sister who disappeared some 15 years earlier. We also learn about his partnership with Hanna and the facility they have built to secure, care for and train their dogs. Creed is traveling with Grace, the smallish Jack Russell terrier that is his favorite and most versatile dog. Creeds job is to explore, with Grace, a large fishing boat, Blue Mist, thought to be working for a new Colombian drug cartel called Choque Azul (Blue Shock). Grace sniffs out human cargo children hidden beneath the floorboards. The next plot strand brings us to the edge of the Potomac River, where FBI agent Maggie ODell has been sent to investigate a corpse found there. She arrives to find the Washington, D.C., Medical Examiner Stan Wenhofff hard g l e t i G philJASONpkjason@comcast.net KAVA HAPPY HOUR 7 Days a Week from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. 2-for-1 Domestic Beer Bottles & Draft, House Margarita (Rocks), Wine $3.00 Well Drinks 7 DAYS A WEEKSAVE 15% OFF YOUR ENTIRE CHECKMust present this coupon upon purchase.

The body, which had been in the water at least a week, carries a strange tattoo, an odd rash and ligature marks. The man had been tortured and perhaps killed while being held in place to be attacked by fire ants. When Ms. Kava introduces an assassin self-named the Ice Man, a killer adept at arcane tortures and killings, we imagine a link between him and the fire ant victim, whose identity is easily revealed (his drivers license is found shoved into his throat, telling us hes Trevor Bagley). Soon enough, the story involving Amanda and the story involving Bagley link up; thus, Creeds case and ODells also link up. The Choque Azul cartel has left its message, the tortured Trevor Bagley, as a warning to others who might get out of line. The human trafficking and the drug trafficking are connected enterprises. Before long, Creeds name appears on the cartels hit list. What else? The various government agencies involved in this huge case are mostly getting in each others way while seeking out a bigger part of the action. Politics plays an ugly role by influencing the course of the investigation. A senators reputation is at stake. The nature of the cases and their obvious mutual attraction bring Creed and ODell together. One can only hope that this relationship forms a thread in forthcoming novels. Among the most powerful scenes in Breaking Creed are those that have to do with Creeds dedication to his chosen profession, his love for his dogs and, most importantly, the art and science of dog handling as it applies to law enforcement tasks. The author provides extremely vivid and engaging detail about how dogs are trained and how they behave on the job. Grace and Creeds other dogs become distinct personalities. Among these scenes is an astounding episode in which Creed has baited a trap for the cartels killers who are seeking him out. In fact, his combination residence/canine compound is the trap. The description of how it operates provides some of the most powerful, suspenseful action in this highly original novel. By developing Ryder Creed into a lead character, Ms. Kava has assured readers a new ride at least as fascinating as the ones theyve taken through the best-selling Maggie ODell series. 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.

Victorian table settings were very elaborate lace or other fancy cloths, at least six or seven special dishes for every course, like a service plate, then fish, soup, dinner, salad and butter plate and a sauce dish. And of course there was silverware to match each course. The minimum was about eight pieces usually a fork, fish fork, salad fork, dessert fork, spoon, soup spoon, dinner spoon, knife and butter knife. Each type of dessert also required special dishes and serving pieces. A berry bowl set for a dinner sold at Earlys Auction in Milford, Ohio, in April 2014 for $3,220. It was a Pairpoint silver plated stand with boys riding on turtles and a candlestick held by a cupid. Added to this were two crimped, pink shaded to yellow Mt. Washington Burmese glass berry bowls decorated with enameled daisies. The top of the candlestick was 49 inches high, so with a candle it was an elaborate tower that had to be noticed. Of course, the berries were served with cream from a pitcher and eaten with special berry spoons. Q: I bought a mahogany bachelors chest with four drawers and a pullout shelf at an estate sale. It was made by Biggs Furniture of Richmond, Virginia. Does it have any value as an antique? A: Biggs made high-quality Colonial reproduction furniture. The company was started by J.F. Biggs, who began selling antiques in Richmond in 1890. A 1912 ad claimed the antiques shop was Virginias largest dealer of old mahogany furniture, old brass, cut glass, copper plate, old china, engravings, paintings, etc. The company Berries had their own special dishes at a Victorian dinner party. This berry set, made with Mt. Washington Burmese glass bowls and a silver-plated stand sold for $3,220 at auction. It is 49 inches high.

In 1969 it became part of General Interiors Corporation, which also owned Kittinger. It was listed as a division of Kittinger in 1975. Biggs was out of business by 2010. The value of your chest is about $500. Q: I have a silver plated creamer with a hinged lid marked Albert Pick Co. Inc. The silver plate is quite worn. Is it worth anything? A: Albert Pick, an immigrant from Austria, founded Albert Pick Company in Chicago in 1857. The company bought E.H.H. Smith Silver Co. of Bridgeport, Connecticut, in 1919 and incorporated as Albert Pick & Co. Your silver-plated creamer was made after that. In the 1920s, family members established the Pick Hotel Corp., which operated a chain of hotels until the 1960s. They used tablewares made by Albert Pick, sometimes with the hotel name on the side. Albert Pick creamers have sold recently for $14-$22. Q: When I was tearing down an old building 50 years ago, I found a poster picturing Jack Dempsey. Its a headshot and hes wearing a suit and tie. His signature is across his left shoulder, but it doesnt look like a real autograph. I remember seeing the same poster, framed, at Jack Dempseys Restaurant on Broadway in New York City. Do you think its worth anything? A: Jack Dempsey ( 1895-1 983), one of the Americas most famous boxers, was world heavyweight champion from 1919 to 1926. His restaurant on Broadway was a popular nightspot from the time it opened in 1938 until it closed in 1974. Assuming your poster was not signed by Dempsey, it would sell for under $10. Q: I still have a Disney charm bracelet that was given to me in 1945 or Its 6 inches long and has five charms Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey, Louie and Jose Carioca. Please help me figure out what its worth. A: Walt Disney introduced Donald Duck in 1934, his three nephews in 1937 and Jose Carioca, a cigar-smoking Brazilian parrot, in Saludos Amigos, a 1942 Disney animated feature. Jose showed up again in The Three Caballeros in 1944. Several kinds of Disney character figural charms were made in the 1940s. You dont tell us if your charms are plastic or metal. And if theyre metal, whether theyre silver, gold, filled or enameled. A bracelet like yours with plastic charms would sell for under $50. A sterling-silver bracelet with silver or enameled charms would sell for more, and so would characters from Disneys more popular films. Tip: Never use chlorine bleach on ironstone dishes. It will cause the glaze to flake off. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The townspeople party around him and tourists come to gawk and take selfies, but nothing ever rouses him from his enchanted sleep. Hazel and her brother Ben have each grown up at least half in love with the horned boy and the magic and mystery he represents, even though they know quite well just how dangerous such things can be for Fairfold is a town living an uneasy truce with the magical beings that dwell all around it, and not all the Fair Folk are benign. Hazel and Ben always wanted to be heroes. With her sword and his music, they've already vanquished several bad fae between them. But time and tragedy have worn away at their ambition, if not their bond. Then, one autumn day, the horned boy wakes up. Unlike the gentle prince of their romantic daydreams, this boy is a dangerous stranger, on the run from the malevolent Alderking. A terrifying monster is stalking him and the town, and desperate for a scapegoat, Fairfold is turning on its own. The truce is breaking down. In order to save their friends and family, Hazel and Ben must become those long-ago heroes again and confront the secrets they've been keeping from each other and, especially, the ones they're keeping from themselves. Holly Black has a knack for depicting the kind of world that the reader yearns to be a part of, and yet is also rather grateful not to be. Her fairies are the deliciously creepy kind: inscrutable, amoral, alluring, dangerous. Pairing this ancient tradition with modern human relationships that are complex yet relatable, Forest is a satisfying work of standalone urban fantasy: rich, bold and thoroughly compelling.

Nassif, MD, FACS CELEBRITY EXTRAWild virus hunt continues on Helix BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I am so glad that Helix is back on Syfy. Can you give me any hints of what to expect this season? Lily T., via emailA: I spoke with series star Billy Campbell not long ago, and he gave me enough Helix scoop to get you through the next few episodes. When we caught up with our season-one survivors when season two began Jan. 16, we were introduced to two new characters, Brother Michael and Dr. Kyle Sommer, played by Steven Weber and Matt Long, respectively. Billy told me what it was like to work with them: Theyre both, first of all, first-class gentlemen. They are wonderful actors. Ive known Steven Weber for many years. We first worked together in the mid-s and then again on Once and Again. And hes a rake and a rogue and an imp, and I always knew he was a creepy guy inside. And now he had the chance to prove it. Hes one of the funniest, and now, I believe, one of the creepiest guys Ive ever met. As far as season two goes, will Billys character, Dr. Alan Farragut, continue his quest to uncover the truth behind Ilaria and the virus outbreak? I would say that I come uncomfortably close to realizing my quest. Everything about the second season ties very neatly into that storyline. If you were shocked and surprised by season one, you will be doubly shocked and surprised by season two. They really outdid themselves. Im not sure exactly what they were smoking in the writers room for season two, but they sure seemed to be having a great time smoking it. Q: I am sad that Will Arnetts series The Millers was canceled. Can you tell me if Ill get to see him in something else soon? Jean F., Branson, Mo.A: The hilarious and talented actor is set to team up with Netflix again, this time developing a series called Flaked, where Will stars as a self-help guru named Chip whos struggling to stay a step ahead of his own lies. Will also co-created, cowrote and co-executive-produced it with Mark Chappell. The series will premiere next year with eight episodes. Q: When will Mad Men be back? Mike D., via emailA: The award-winning drama returns to AMC with its final seven episodes at 10 p.m. April 5. Regarding the finale, series star John Slattery told Variety: It was surprising to the end; while January Jones said: Its a beautiful story. Its perfect in every way. Series creator and writer Matthew Weiner told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour that while he hopes fans will be pleased with the ending, as the person telling the story, I think people sometimes have to be protected from what they want to see happen. To delight them with a surprise, you cant give them everything they want. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

We expanded it by 50 percent last year, and this year were expanding 25 percent more, so its going to be a bigger layout, says Jim Ketis, this years festival chairman. With several tents surrounding the main tent, which tops out at 18,000 square feet, the event has quadrupled the number of vendors available to guests in just two years. The perception we got is almost like little villages, Mr. Ketis says. We have the main tent and 10 little tents. We have an esplanade in the middle, and you can actually see the whole festival. The abundance of homemade Greek specialties is the festivals main draw. The outside grill line offers lamb selections and six gyro machines along with an entre section with traditional foods such as pasticchio, mousakka and shish kabobs with chicken or pork. To finish, St. Katherines congregants prepare a variety of homemade pastries so guests can round out their smorgasbord with a treat like baklava, loukoumades or honey puffs, which Mr. Ketis likens to zeppolis. The festival also includes plenty of cultural presentations, exhibitions, musical performances and shopping opportunities to keep guests busy just dont let them distract you from the food. GreekFest hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $4 (free for ages 12 and younger).

THE DISH The dish: The Alpine Kir Royale grilled cheese sandwich The place: The bar at Whole Foods Market in Mercato The price: $8, includes a cup of creamy tomato soup or a bag of Terra root vegetable chips The hours: 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday; 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday The details: We had a 7 p.m. movie to catch at Silverspot and were hungry for comfort food after a long Monday in the office following a busy weekend. We thought about dining cafeteria-style but were a bit overwhelmed by the options. Plus, we liked the idea of being waited on, so we bellied up to the granitetopped bar toward the back of the market, beyond the wine aisles. From the Meltdowns category on the menu, we each chose a grilled cheese sandwich: the Alpine Kir Royale made with gruyere and smeared with sour cherry jam (our servers favorite, he told us) for me, and the Lotzza Mozza with fresh mozzarella and basil for my friend. I asked for soup; she opted for chips. Talk about comfort food. Both sandwiches arrived warm and gooey on the inside between thin slices of sourdough grilled to golden with just the right amount of b utter. I loved the tartness of the sour cherry jam in every bite of mine, and my friend found the burst of fresh basil equally pleasing in hers. We liked our choices so much that before we thought to offer one another a wedge in exchange, a few crusty crumbs were all that remained on each of our plates. One more thing: There are five more inventive grilled-cheese options in the Meltdowns category on the menu, as well as burgers (beef and veggie), wings, pizzas, salads and several platters with artisan cheeses, cured meats, nuts and vegetables. Wine and several beers on tap are available. Keep the bar at Whole Foods in mind the next time youre in the North Naples neighborhood and need something relatively quick and assuredly satisfying. We had our choice of stools at 6 p.m.; when we left just before 7 to make the movie, others were happy to grab them.

Its a pain. But the rest of it is pure pleasure, because the wines of this region offer tremendous taste treats and tremendous values. First things first. The area is divided into two parts, northern and southern, which have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Theyre separated by about 40 miles of agricultural land with nary a grapevine to be seen, and their winemaking traditions are worlds apart. In the north, the predominant red grape is Syrah, but in the south, the reds are blends of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and up to 10 other grapes. In both areas, whites, which represent only a small part of the production, are generally Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne. More about those whites another time. The northernmost area of the Northern Rhone is called the Cte Rtie the roasted slope. Just to the south is the famous area of Hermitage, with its landmark hill rising above a bend in the river. The southern Rhne is best known for Chateauneuf du Pape, and thats a column (or an entire book) in itself. In the most general sense, the north, which starts near the town of Vienne, includes (from north to south) the appellations of Condrieu (100 percent whites), St. Joseph (very popular), Cornas, and the famous area of Hermitage. As mentioned above, production is almost all red wines, and theyre made with 100 percent Syrah. Heres another little wrinkle: the Cte Rtie consists of two parts: the Cte Brune and the Cte Blonde. These are separate hillsides, and wines may come from either one, or can be a blend from both areas. In fact, Guigal, a major producer, has a wine called Brune et Blonde, which is very well known. (Theres a charming story about how the blonde and brunette slopes got their names, but not now.) And one more, if I may: even though the red wine of the northern Rhone is Syrah, they often like to blend in just a little Viognier (a white wine). Not much, maybe about 5 percent or so, more for aroma than anything else. The Aussies do the same thing. In this region, they do things a little differently, using some practices that are absolutely against the law in other places. Specifically, they use a technique called chaptalization, charmingly named after Jean-Antoine Chaptal, the minister of agriculture under Napoleon. This practice involves adding sugar to the fermenting juice to boost the alcohol content. There are hundreds of producers in this area, and theyve been in the winemaking game for a very long time. Many are negociants, which means they buy grapes from various growers, make and blend their own wines, and bottle them under their own labels. This is not necessarily a bad thing, and you might look for wines from Guigal, Paul Jaboulet Aine, and Chapoutier. (Chapoutier, by the way, prints his wine labels in Braille). At a tasting in New York a while ago, I was able to taste generous samples of several Rhnes. Here are the most memorable. Jean-Louis Chave St. Joseph 2006 I gave this one 92 points for its nose of big black fruit and allspice. Lighter than an Aussie Shiraz, with a very long finish. Jean-Louis Chave St. Joseph Offerus Notes of plum, cherry, and grilled meat make this Syrah go well with all sorts of hearty dishes. And its reasonably priced. Les Vins de Vienne Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes Sotanum 2007 The name is a mouthful, and so is the wine. The Vienne area lies outside the recognized area of Cte-Rtie, and theres plenty of attractive transparency in the color of this Syrah, with sweet fruit and minerality on the nose. We also detected some garrigue, that nice brambly sage/rosemary aroma. Very attractive. Domaine du Coulet Cornas Les Terrases du Serre 2006 The most wood and earth so far, a darker color, and darker fruit on the nose. Maybe 90 points. I didnt put a star next to it.

CUISINEKosher gets easier in Southwest Florida BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comLuba Greenberg moves around the spacious kitchen in her Bonita Springs home, preparing Shabbos dinner for her family and guests from Chabad of Bonita Springs. The meal will be served the following day, Friday, in observance of the Jewish law that work cease to observe the weekly ritual. Each week, Ms. Greenberg, who is co-director of Chabad of Bonita Springs with her husband, Rabbi Mendy Greenberg, host about 20 people for a kosher Sabbath meal. Among the regular guests are several Jewish students from Florida Gulf Coast University who dont always have access to a traditional meal. Food is one of the basic things we do in life, she says. We eat realizing that Judaism and God is not just about services, but that Hes in the cupcake were eating and our coffee and cake. On the menu are a variety of cold vegetable spreads, roasted chicken and cholent, a beef stew with deep roots in Jewish tradition. Ms. Greenberg prepares the meal in a kitchen designed with two ovens, two sinks and two dishwashers to separate the preparation of meat and dairy items. Basic kosher laws require the separation of meat and dairy in food preparation and at meals. Only domesticated animals with cloven hooves and cud that are slaughtered in accordance with Jewish law and only seafood with fins and scales are allowed. No cheeseburgers, no shellfish. Many kosher families keep two sets of dishes and utensils for dairy and meat meals, color-coding each so its easy for guests to follow the food rules. As Southwest Floridas development catches up to that of the Sunshine States east coast, obtaining kosher provisions is becoming easier for Jewish families that follow traditional dietary laws. The Greenbergs, who practice Orthodox Judaism, are able to do the majority of their dry goods and produce shopping locally by making rounds among Publix, Costco and Whole Foods. Both Publix and Trader Joes provide some kosher cuts of meat as well, but they and many local families still travel to the east coast for most of their animal protein. The demand in our community is not large enough to support it, says Rabbi Ammos Chorny of Beth Tikvah of Naples. From South Beach to Palm Beach County, because the volume of observant Jews is so high, in Hollywood alone I can count 10 butchers. Rabbi Chorny says a good portion of his congregation maintains a kosher lifestyle of some sort, varying from strict observance to accommodating a few of the laws into their homes and diets. When they move here from communities up north with larger Jewish populations and greater availability of restaurants and products, he says they acknowledge they will have to make some adjustments. They are very cognizant of the fact that they are coming here and they are out of their street in Chicago or New York, he says. They know that its a decision theyve made so they will adjust accordingly. That often means either not eating at restaurants at all or sticking to vegetarian options when they do. As transplants who moved from New York about 10 years ago, the Greenbergs made some adjustments to accommodate their strictly Kosher diet here in Southwest Florida. Ms. Greenberg, for example, enjoyed the convenience of growing up in Brooklyn where kosher provisions and restaurants surrounded her. She could walk down to the corner and get everything she wanted. The kosher butcher, kosher bakery, kosher supermarket, kosher take-out, kosher caterers its all at your fingertips. Rabbi Greenberg says. Instead, we make it a restaurant here, Ms. Greenberg says. We have date night at the house, and my husband will make a nice steak dinner. Its more enjoyable in our home. Each congregation has its own means of making kosher accessible to its congregants, whether that means feeding out-of-state college students a Shabbos meal or creating a cooperative to split the price of costly meat. Chabad of Naples has taken up with an east coast catering company, Aroma Market and Catering, to provide supplies for its congregants. They can place orders for goods from the butcher or bakery and for prepared foods, and the market makes a weekly run across Alligator Alley from Cooper City to deliver the goods to the synagogue. The Jewish Congregation of Marco Islands second annual Deli Fest earlier this month attracted more than 2,000 people looking for homemade pastrami, corned beef, soups and baked goods. Its first year, organizers underestimated how appealing traditional deli favorites would be to the community and bumped up production for its 2015 festival, selling 1,750 deli sandwiches and 1,000 portions of soup and strudel. Its all us grandmas baking our hearts out from recipes that have been around forever, says organizer Estie Karpman. (Last year), we ran out of food. We had no idea they were wrapped around the building. Whether its easy or difficult to follow kosher traditions, We know that living according to the laws enhances and promotes a good life, Rabbi Chorny says.
