www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 COMMENTARY Happy Valentines Day (the non-Hallmark version)Lets consider love. Yeats, William Butler, Irish, Army of the Poets, serial number 1865-1939, put it this way: But love has pitched his mansion in the place of excrement. Thats from his poem, Crazy Jane Talks with the Bishop. One wonders in the week that brings us Valentines Day how love can arise from excrement. But why not? Especially if a romantic holiday can arise from the martyrdom and painful death of St. Valentine on the Via Flaminia in Rome, about 496 AD. They say his skull, crowned in a garland of flowers, can still be seen on display in the Basilica of Romes Santa Maria in Cosmedin. There were several sainted Valentines attached to a variety of bloody stories describing their sainted ends, actually. Some of those were probably made up in order to fill out the martyrologies that have kept people entertained in the Christian world for about 1,500 years. You think ISIS is bad (to mention excrement, if I may)? Those wackos have nothing on the inventive Romans and later the Christians, for whom public executions of the most horrifying ingenuity were carried out regularly as public ceremonies. The most obvious lesson to arise from any of those Valentines stories is this: Never name your male children Valentine. Things will not end well. In the world that gave rise to Valentines Day as we know it romantically, it was a big affront to the status quo to be a Christian. Later the Christians turned that around. Then it became a big affront not to be a Christian. Nevertheless, for a thousand years of Christendom you could get away with being a Jew like Jesus if you didnt mind traveling or being kicked around periodically (again, like Jesus). Then the Germans ended that under Adolph Hitler, starting about 80 years ago. They turned a banked-coals anti-Semitism into a raging fire of hatred. And you could get away with being a Muslim if you marched in an army into Spain and built mosques. Or if you traded with Christians from the safety of your own country. Or if you happened to come from the educated Arab world that saved the Greek philosophers Aristotle and Plato and other cornerstones of Western Civilization from the Christians who burned down the library at Alexandria, in 391 AD. Although that story may be more nuanced or complicated than the bare detail suggests, this isnt: Christendom proselytized with the sword for centuries, and knew nothing of Aristotle or Plato and little of astronomy or mathematics until about the 12th century. Then western theologians and scholars began to trade ideas with Arabs (the greatest scholars in the world), once again. Just in time for the Crusades. Perversely, perhaps, all of that was about love of one kind or another. And Christians have been very good at burning or banning books about love, too. In recent years, for example, the following books have been banned or censored and abridged in some American school communities, including in Florida: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, Bridge To Terabithia, Of Mice and Men, The Color Purple, the Harry Potter series, and the Bible, as well the Patrick Smith novel that defines Florida, A Land Remembered. All of these books are about l ove, one way or another. Every one should be a Valentine story. And each is gnarly and difficult, just like the world, where love has pitched his mansion. In particular it was the abridgement of A Land Remembered that caught my attention when my son was in the fourth grade, in public school, and came home one day in a pique of disappointment. Weeks earlier hed found the whole 403-page thing on our shelves and read it, before his teacher decided to read the book out loud to the class of 9and 10-year-olds. But to his great indignation, she read a very abridged version. I wrote down what he described, at the time. They never said Zech and Towanda had a baby, he told me. We read to the part where Zech comes back to the Indian village, and he randomly finds he had a son. And the thing was, Dad, he never had a son with Towanda (in the abridged version), so thats physically impossible. Id rather they cut out the entire part about Toby the boy. Its a pitiful way to re-create the story. They also censored the swearing. What swearing, I asked him? Hell, sonofabitch, bastard, things like that, he told me. Never heard of those words. Have you? And it cuts out that part when Frog found the man who made Glenda have the dud baby that died, and he brings him back and says, What are we going to do with him? And Zech drags him out in the woods and kills him, and the only thing left is his limp body. It left all that out. The censors also left out the first and last chapters of A Land Remembered, my son told me. In an elegant and old-time storytelling symmetry (as I wrote at the time), the novel starts in a Rolls Royce overlooking Key Biscayne and ends only a short time later on a Cracker front porch, when a man dies in a stampede of his memories. Its poignant and beautiful, and it moved my son deeply. He was sobered. He talked about it for days. Hell remember it all his life, I know from experience. Thats because its about love. And love has pitched his mansion in the place of excrement, said Yeats. But the poet added this, too, to complete the stanza, and fill out the truth of love: For nothing can be sole or whole that has not been rent. Happy Valentines Day. t V t i t t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The Kochs ride againIt was interesting while it lasted, but the 2016 election is now officially bought. The purchasers are the Koch brothers, and the price, a cool $889 million. The news that the network organized by David and Charles Koch plans to spend roughly $900 million in the 2016 cycle has freaked out Democrats, outraged so-called campaign-finance reformers and inspired hand-wringing about the future of the planet Earth. The despair is misplaced. One sign it is still a free country is that a band of likeminded people, devoted to principles they consider essential to the countrys thriving, can get together and try to effect them in public policy. For all that campaign reformers hate the Kochs, the brothers network is, in part, their creation. This is the natural consequence, campaign-finance reformer Lawrence Lessig griped about the $889 million, of a regime with essentially no contribution limits. Actually, it is the inevitable consequence of contribution limits. The campaign-finance reformers kneecapped the political parties with malice aforethought and then are stunned that, in a free country, political activity has found other outlets. If Reince Priebus and Debbie Wasserman Schultz are limited to raising $32,400 per donor annually, they will inevitably lose ground to outside groups. Rather than freeing up the parties, advocates of greater regulation want to make it as difficult, or perhaps even impossible, for everyone else to raise and spend money on politics. The only obstacle to this ambition is damn you, George Mason the Bill of Rights, specifically the First Amendment. That is why Democrats like current House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi hope to amend the First Amendment to allow the government the latitude to further limit political speech. Until such time (and may it never arrive), the Kochs and their allies get to run free. The left always wants to paint the Koch brothers as self-interested, to better fit the stereotype of the robber baron distorting government for his own ends. But they are the rare breed of businessmen who dont seek special favors from government, who in fact oppose them on principle. They are capitalists who hate crony capitalism. In the libertarian paradise that they seek, the Kochs would be freer of government regulation but so would everyone else. The $889 million figure is not quite what it seems. It encompasses all the Koch spending, including support for academic programs and think tanks. Nor is buying an election all it is cracked up to be. The Kochs spent some $400 million on the 2012 election, and came up empty. The brothers are archvillains, regardless. The left is invested in trying to find a way to squeeze them out of the political process, because it instinctively hates anything being unregulated, including political activity. Also, its attitude is influence for me, but not for thee. The left, by and large, owns the media, academia, the big foundations and Hollywood. Compared with all of that priceless political and cultural influence, the spending of the Koch network is a pittance. The Koch brothers will nonetheless remain targets, so long as they continue to so prominently represent and advocate for a free society. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. GUEST OPINIONMalthus redux BY BILL KILPATRICK Special to Florida WeeklyIt seems to me were doing yeoman work addressing one of the most significant and dramatic issues facing the world today overpopulation and I think we should feel pretty good about ourselves. I mean, quite apart from the customary checks on population growth earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados, hurricanes, floods, drought, famine, pestilence (e.g., ebola), and the like we continue humanitys love affair with war, periodic, granted, but nonetheless always good for the elimination of multiple thousands, even millions. Religion, that old reliable, also is doing its well-worn best to keep population growth in check the blowing up of mosques and churches, the suicide bombers in shopping malls and buses, the predations of various Muslim extremist groups, Jonestown, the Inquisition, and on and on. Of bright new promise is todays proliferation of so-called technology, the wonders of which never cease cell phones, for example, which today seem to be standard equipment for third-graders and up. Perhaps youve noticed those under age 35 have become incapable of walking with their heads up, of watching where theyre going, so compelling, apparently, are the cell phone wonders to be pored over. This seeming compulsion is certain to lead to evermore instances of pedestrians stepping off curbs and into oncoming traffic, and while perhaps not a significant contributor to the cause, fatalities are certain to occur. I mean, every little bit helps, right? And while I dont know if anyone is keeping tabs on this, Im virtually certain we lose a million or more worldwide each year thanks to yakking on the phone, texting or applying mascara while driving automobiles. Also, once youve seen a kid on a skateboard careening down a sidewalk with a phone stuck in his ear you can appreciate the likelihood of the world having fewer mouths to feed. Further, in-car positional guidance systems, TVs and engine-monitoring lights, all of which require (a) taking ones eyes off the road, and (b) diverting concentration, have to be good for the elimination of additional thousands. And of course there are the cars themselves, all of which feature speedometers indicating capability of speeds of well over 100 miles-per-hour. Such instrument panel promise is probably optimistic, but countless lives are lost in the effort to prove its validity, often under the influence of strong drink. Showing great promise is the proliferation of motorcycles, especially of the whiny Japanese models referred to a rice burners. Who among us hasnt witnessed them weaving their way through traffic at dazzling speeds, on their throttles tattooed young men who look as if they should be in school? To see them doing wheelies down a major thoroughfare is to appreciate their potential in the struggle against overpopulation. Were doing well with guns, too. Not a day goes by that isnt thatched with reports of gun violence, usually fatal. Guns are as common to neighborhoods as trash cans, and at the rate theyre being fired both in this country and abroad, future census figures should show a marked decline. Not only are we doing well at present, in this country various state legislatures are weighing considerations such as allowing guns to be carried on college campuses, even carried openly on the street. Also promising are the increasing number of small automatics in womens handbags. Perhaps most encouraging of all is that worldwide sales of assault rifles, the sole purpose of which is killing whatever theyre fired at, are booming. Too, wed be remiss if we didnt pay tribute to smokings contributions to the cause. Annually, millions worldwide go to that Great Smoking Room in the Sky because either they cant read, are blind, deaf, or maybe all three. The absolute and indisputable fact that smoking kills is heralded by every known means of communications throughout the world, yet happily for the purposes of population control is universally ignored. The rational for doing so seems to be summed up in the comfy phrase You, maybe, not me. Along this same line is the widespread use of narcotics, perhaps especially meth, and what a dandy little predator that is. Overall, certain to warm the heart of any advocate of population control is the early morning sight of junkies milling about a street corner waiting for the connection to show up. Finally, let us not forget fat. By all means, homage is due our propensity to pack on pounds. In this country alone, we seem to be pursuing an encouragingly unhealthy lifestyle built around French fries, pizza and cheeseburgers, thus straining hearts to and beyond the bursting point. Each time yet another jumbo drops in his or her tracks, or is the victim of a stroke, their bodies simply exhausted from carrying all that excess weight, the menace of overpopulation is further reduced. In sum, then, if you think about it, its all very encouraging, for it turns out Thomas Robert Malthus, the 19th century English economist and cleric who notably warned of overpopulation, had nothing to worry about.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 PROFILES IN PARADISEBringing a classical education to Collier County youngstersWhen Kelly Lichter graduated from high school, her dad wanted her to attend Hillsdale College in Michigan. She chose a different path, but 20 years later, when she and her husband were thinking about where their young children might eventually go to school, it triggered a desire to look at Hillsdales website. Her dad had always told her Hillsdale College would provide the best education, so she wanted to find out what he meant. Kellys search led to information about Hillsdale Academy, a private K-12 school affiliated with the college. As she viewed the curriculum guides and discovered what and how the academy was teaching, she knew she wanted to bring a piece of Hillsdale to Naples. Mason Classical Academy the name chosen to honor her late father, Don Mason, who died suddenly of a heart attack in 2007 opened its doors in August 2014 with 414 students in grades K-6. The school is full and has waiting lists for every grade. A classical education attends to advancing the intellect with a keen attention to ethics and the habitual practice of applying wisdom and virtue as a way of life. Kelly, who was elected to the Collier County School Board in August last year and took office in November, was born and grew up in Cedar Lake, Ind., just 45 minutes from Chicago. It was a place where everybody knew everybody, she says. I played on the same sports teams with my twin brother and our brother who was a year older than us. After 11 years of public education, her father sent her to Culver Academy for her last two years of high school. There she was captain of the varsity soccer and basketball teams and the tennis team. Instead of Hillsdale College as her father wanted, she went to BaldwinWallace College in Ohio, majoring in history. After graduation she took the year off to prepare for the LSAT and applied to a few law schools. Her roommate at the time, a teacher, suggested Kelly try substitute teaching for the year. She applied and was offered a full-time position working with special needs students in middle school. She also coached school tennis, soccer and basketball. After spending a year in the public school arena, she realized that teaching was her calling. She was accepted into law school but decided to go back to school for her teaching certification instead. Kelly moved to Naples, where her parents and grandparents had homes, in 2006. She taught high school social studies in Collier County for a couple of ears and was also a JV head girls soccer coach. During that time she returned to school and earned a masters degree in secondary social studies education. When daughter Caroline was born in September 2008, Kelly did not return to work. Son Mason followed 15 months later. Becoming a mother changed my perspective on so many things, especially the kind of education I wanted for my own kids, she says. Along with her duties at MCA and the Collier County School Board, Kelly is involved in several church and community activities. She competes in triathlons and duathlons (running and bicycling), and loves to cheer on the Chicago Bears. C a a m w s w bobHARDEN email@example.com Talking points with Kelly LichterSomething thats been on your mind: The challenges of changing the status quo.Something your mom was right about: She always said being a stay-at-home mom is hard yet very rewarding work.As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 There was not sufficient consensus among Republicans, though, to agree that people and their carbon emissions are a factor in changes such as global warming. Those are two things the worldwide scientific community agrees on: climate change is a problem for us and we are partly to blame, along with nature, said Michael Savarese, Ph.D. in geology, a professor of marine science at Florida Gulf Coast University who has researched the history of environmental change and the effects of sea-level rise on the coast. Outside of that broad consensus, and outside the heated political debates and conjecture, the research and science behind climate change is enormously complex and varied. The U.S. governments most recent 2014 National Climate Assessment, produced every four years with the agreement of hundreds of experts and 13 federal agencies, says global sea levels could rise between 1.5 and 6.3 feet by 2100. That could also vary widely at local levels. Even with huge variability, said scientists and researchers at FGCU and the University of Florida, and other experts in the state, there are changes happening now and long-term effects that we should prepare for that range from inconvenient to devastating. The federal report identifies sea level rise, dangerously hot weather, hurricanes and decreased water supplies as key problems expected to worsen in the southeastern United States in decades to come. The climate assessment also identifies some of the fastest-growing areas along the coast vulnerable to sea level rise and storm surge, including Palm Coast, and the Cape Coral-Fort Myers metro area. Jayantha Obeysekera, Ph.D. in civil engineering, sat on the federal committee that produced the National Climate Assessment and oversees climate and sea level rise issues with the South Florida Water Management District. That agencys mission includes protecting the water supply and quality, flood protection and environmental restoration. We realized all our mission elements could be impacted, by climate change, Mr. Obeysekera said. Many water control structures on the coast are out of date, for instance. Were beginning to look at what is the level of flood protection we have today and how will it change in the future due to sea level rise, he said. A warmer ocean in combination with population growth and other factors have implications from Hurricane intensity to saltwater intrusion in our freshwater underground aquifers. The sea has moved up the Southwest Florida coastline over the last hundred years by about 9 inches, said James Beever, principal planner for the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council, one of 11 in the state made up of mayors, commissioners and other officials. That speed could accelerate as the atmosphere and in turn oceans slowly w arm, a warmth that causes the water to expand slightly, accelerating sea level rise along with melting icecaps in Greenland and Antarctica. It could also provide the energy to produce increasingly intense hurricanes and flooding events. At the same time, droughts could also become more severe and, along with saltwater replacing fresh in depleted aquifers, lead to water shortages and political battles between agriculture and developers for the resource, said James W. Jones, Ph.D., director of the Florida Climate Institute and a retired UF professor who studies the effects of environmental change on crop yields. But as an agricultural competitor, the state could also benefit from climate changes, he suggested. Florida could develop breeding programs for vegetable varietals like sweet corn that western states such as California produce less of due to already severe drought and water shortages. We have an opportunity to actually increase our share of the vegetable and fruit production because California is likely to lose a lot of that over the long term, he said. I dont see them getting a lot of that water back in the long term.Long-term planning Although the idea of restricting development along popular areas of the coast could be political anathema, that is in some cases the most economically sound policy in the long run for communities, said UF professor of urban and regional planning, Zhong-Ren Peng, Ph.D. His current research includes the study of climate change planning from a cost-benefit perspective. Professor Peng and other researchers are finishing a study after nearly two years that analyzes strategies in the Tampa Bay area for commercial and residential development and protecting the vulnerability of critical infrastructure like hospitals, roads and schools. Our recommendation is if its not a new development, we wanted to give some space between the beach and the buildings, and in some places probably discourage new development around the beach, he said. Thats probably from the government point of view the best way to adapt to future sea level rise. I would say right now from a planning point of view to take some actions to discourage current development in the coastal areas is probably the best strategy. If you look at the 50-year horizon, thats probably the most economical way to do it. What, me worry?Planning for climate change can be a tough sell in Southwest Florida, which is years removed from a major hurricane and hasnt experienced the flooding that has mobilized big east-coast metropolitan areas to confront climate change. On a balmy afternoon in February, why worry about sea level rise or storm surge along the coast that could effect real estate, for instance? The only thing thats affecting us is that its so beautiful down here in Naples, Fla., said David Frye, president of Downing-Frye Realty. Its hard to have that concern here just because its so perfect. Naples city officials have not made a detailed assessment of how climate change could impact the community over the long term. Its something that at least at this point in time we havent seen much of a reason to put a lot of time and resources into that, said Mayor John Sorey. Mr. Frye, Mayor Sorey and others point out that the worst flooding has been happening on the east coast. The town of Fort Myers Beach, for instance, has not made plans to deal with climate change-related issues. Theres always been a challenge with beaches changing, but to say thats because of climate change, I just wouldnt want to say that, I just dont CLIMATEFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSJoanne Muller, FGCU program leader for Marine Science Geology, and students take sediment samples from Estero Bay in 2012.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 NEWS A9 know, said town manager Don Stilwell. But flooding problems on Miami Beach, which is both a municipality and a barrier island that catches the full impact of the Atlantic Ocean, could also indicate some of the troubles the western gulf side and its gentler waters might face in the future. Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine likes to joke that I was floated into office in 2013. The most low-lying western part of the beach community was flooding often, even on clear blue days. This sunny day flooding phenomenon was very unnerving, to business interests and investors, the mayor said. It happened in the fall when the tides reached their peak. The mayor gathered engineers and other experts to fix the problem. The pipes that drain water from the land through the seawall into the ocean were in poor shape. As the tide rose, it would come back up the pipes and flood the streets. The city repaired the tunnels so the water couldnt reverse into the streets and tore up streets to install massive pumps underground that could be switched on when necessary. Having heard of Miamis efforts, the national news media showed up last fall for The Super Bowl of flooding, when the tides would peak. Fortunately, the measures Mr. Levine took worked and the streets remained dry as the Sahara. But that was only the start of measures to protect Miami Beach. The city plans to spend $300 to $400 million installing more than 60 of the big underground pumps, is considering new building regulations to set roads and homes above flood planes, and a program to put up seawalls. All that should keep Miami Beach prepared for climate change for the next 50 years. And after that? Im a big believer in human innovation, said Mayor Levine, who like other officials stressed each community needs its own plan. I always say the bay and the ocean is not Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, he said. It doesnt care how we debate it, its happening. Flooding is the biggest concern for Phil Buchanan, a Pine Island resident, retired attorney and environmental activist. While existing regulations require houses to be built at higher elevations, those dont apply to roads on the island, which often flood during summer high tides; and in extreme cases could flood yards and wash through residents septic sewer systems. Weve really got to get rid of those things, he said. He has observed that a mobile home park in St. James City floods nearly every summer now. Right now they go underwater so badly they get a foot of water in their trailers just about every summer, he said. Its gotten worse over the years.Punta Gorda looks aheadOfficials in Punta Gorda have been some of the most progressive in the region in looking closely at climate change effects, said Mr. Beever of the Regional Planning Council, by implementing a strategy into its comprehensive plan in 2009. Even if the world makes a pact to reduce carbon emissions or the state develops further wind-resistant building codes, he and other planners say, the effects of a warmer environment can be so place-specific that individual municipalities should have their own plan of action. Basically, climate change is something we can plan for, we can adapt to and we can live with if we make the right decisions, he said. But if we dont plan and adapt were going to see disaster which will then become the immediate concern for people. Evaluating climate change science and scenarios for how their community could be effected was the first step, said Punta Gordas chief planner Joan LeBeau. They are prepared for long term possibilities but have started with small changes, in part because there is so much uncertainty about how much the climate will change: the difference between seas rising a foot, for instance, or 4 feet by 2100 and inundating large portions of South Florida. The city is protecting existing natural environments in Charlotte Harbor and creating living seawalls such as an oyster reef that are more adaptable to sea level rise than a traditional sea wall, for instance, along with developing city building codes that require more elevated structures, monitoring water usage and encouraging the use of native plants that are more drought tolerant. The oyster reef will give us, we believe, additional time, she said. Well be able to preserve that area as sea level rise begins to effect the city I think the take home from it is you can do something. It doesnt have to be extreme. I think people are worried about an extreme change and you cant because you have existing properties. You dont have to change everything today. Everybody has to look at it from their perspective, what their communities wants and needs are, and how youre going to be moving forward.Mangrove and natural protectionFloridas existing natural environment, such as its mangrove swamps, helps buffer communities from sea level rise and storm surge. The environment also helps to reduce the warming effects of greenhouse gasses by absorbing carbon out of the atmosphere through photosynthesis. It is estimated that there are 500,000 acres of mangrove swamps in Florida, with 90 percent of them in the south Florida counties of Lee, Collier, Dade and Monroe, William J. Mitsch, Ph.D., director of the Everglades Wetland Research Park at FGCUs Kapnick Center in Naples, wrote in an email. We estimate that 220,000 U.S. tons of carbon are sequestered annually from the atmosphere by Floridas mangrove wetlands. From another source we found that one car emits approximately 2 tons of carbon per car per year. Therefore the Florida mangrove carbon sequestration is equal to the emissions of 110,000 cars. Sanibel Island is also unique in that 67 percent of the island is conservation land, a protective buffer, pointed out James Evans, the city natural resources director. Although the city council has not taken a formal position on climate change, he said the island is at about 89 percent build-out, so there wont be as much development happening on other areas of the coast that could exacerbate weather problems. That in itself in preparing for climate change I think goes a long way, he said. Thats one of the huge benefits of having a comprehensive land use plan based on natural habitats and natural systems.Hurricanes and the next DonnaJoanne Muller, Ph.D. in paleoclimatology, came to FGCU in 2011. An assistant professor of marine science and geology, she researches past climate change in tropical latitudes focusing on Southwest Florida. She talked about her latest research, creating a hurricane history of Southwest Florida going back thousands of years: The most recent research is showing that hurricanes are not necessarily increasing in frequency, were not necessarily getting more hurricanes, were just getting more intense hurricanes. And thats really well established now, (that) consistently over the last 20, 30, 160 years that hurricane intensity is increasing. Because sea surface temperatures are warmer now they have more likelihood of reaching that (Category) 3, Cat 4, Cat 5 status. But some have questioned the research and its accuracy because the record only goes back 160 years. What were trying to do with my research is extend that record back thousands of years, said Professor Muller. She uses sediment samples from local lagoons and marshes to reveal that hurricane history and show how it is effected by natural weather periods and patterns like the El Nio Southern Oscillation. The sediment cores contain overwash layers at different points, markers that show where storm surge washed offshore sediment into a lagoon. As it turns out, hurricanes from about 500 to 1,000 years ago, during a Medieval warm period, left a record suggesting our warming waters could produce larger storms than we have seen in recent decades, something more like Hurricane Donna in 1960 with more than 10 feet of storm surge. There are really specific sorts of hurricanes that are leaving a geologic record and we think they are the very intense large storms that produce really big storm surge, she said. And the record essentially tells us when sea surface temperatures are warmer out in the Atlantic we get more of these big storms, hurricane Donna-like storms, in Southwest Florida. She flooded the entire area of downtown Naples. There was quite a bit of construction down here then but nowhere near today. If you have a storm that comes through with 3.5-meter storm surge its going to completely flood the area where it comes ashore. When such a storm does come and it will at some point whether it comes next storm season or 10 years from now or 100 years from now is a different question, but when that storm does come, its going to be a significant issue. The last 100 years in Southwest Florida:>> Increased annual number of 90-plus degree days by 12 >> Increased sea level by 8-9 inches >> Longer more severe dry seasons and shorter, wetter wet seasons >> Increased coastal erosion, tropical disease in plants, wildlife and humans Source: Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council >> Temperatures are expected to rise between 2 and 12 degrees F by 2100, which could cause both more intense rain and snow storms since more water vapor is held in the atmosphere. >> The climate is changing faster than any other time in history because of CO2 pollution. Source: U.S. Environmental Protection AgencyIf nothing is done to limit human-induced causes of climate change or adapt to it: >> The storm-related losses attributed to climate change along the Florida shoreline are likely to increase by as much as $1.3 billion per year on average by 2030, and by as much as $4 billion annually by 2050, bringing the states likely total annual storm damage to as much as $17.2 billion per year by mid-century. >> 7: number of days per year with temperatures above 95 degrees a typical Floridian experienced in the past 30 years. >>30-76: estimated number of 95-plus days by 2050. >> Between 2020 and 2039, the number of 95-plus degree days could increase the costs of coastal storm damage by 5.6 to 9.7 percent annually. >> (T)he most severe risks can be avoided through early investments in resilience, and through immediate public and private sector action to reduce the pollution that causes climate change.

The Friendliest Practice You Will Find239-300-9693 WE OFFER PAYMENT PLANS THROUGH CARE CREDIT Meet Dr. Gordon & Our StaffResearchers switch to cell phones for consumer confidence survey THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAConsumer sentiment among Floridians rose sharply to 93.3 in January, almost six points higher than Decembers reading, according to a new University of Florida study. However, much of that increase occurred because of recent changes in how UF economists collect survey data, according to Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Since the survey began in 1985, UF researchers have used landline telephones to contact survey respondents. During those years, we minimized the changes to our methodology to maintain an index that reflects changes in consumer attitudes rather than changes in method, Mr. McCarty says. Today, however, only 53 percent of American households still have a landline, while 89 percent now own cell phones, according to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. To keep up with this shift, many survey organizations have switched to a cell-phone-only policy to contact respondents. Among them is the University of Michigan, which measures consumer sentiment nationally. It made the change this month. Given the University of Michigans shift in methodology and the start of a new year, we decided now is the time to implement it, too, Mr. McCarty says. It is also a good time because of the relatively stable economic environment both in Florida and nationally. A move to cell phones means the sample of respondents more closely matches the demographics of the state. In addition, we weight the results of our cell phone survey by county, age, sex and minority status, so that the results match the distribution of these same variables in the state, Mr. McCarty says. The overall effect, he adds, is an increase in consumer sentiment, as younger respondents are more represented. The rise occurred in all five indexes used in UFs January survey. Respondents overall perception that their personal finances are better now than a year ago was 78.5, while their expectations of enjoying better personal finances a year from now was 100.7. Their confidence in U.S. economic conditions over the next year registered 95.5, while their trust in its performance over the next five years was 92.1. Survey takers perception that now is a good time to buy major household items was 99.5. The bureau made other changes in how it reports consumer confidence. To match the University of Michigan national release, we will now post our results on the last Friday of the month rather than the last Tuesday, which the Conference Board an independent, business-member and research association uses for its consumer confidence release, Mr. McCarty says. We are also reporting the first decimal rather than rounding the result up or down. UF economists will also now break the index down by households making more or less than $50,000 a year rather than using the previous figure of $30,000. The revised number more nearly matches the median income for Florida households. But methodology changes only partly explain the dramatic jump in confidence. Overall the economy has improved for most consumers and lifted consumer sentiment, Mr. McCarty says. Retail sales for the holiday season, for instance, rose 4.7 percent from 2013. Job gains and a declining labor force caused Floridas unemployment rate to dip to 5.6 percent in December, matching the U.S. unemployment figure. The median price for an existing single-family home rose to $185,000 in December after a two-month decline, while interest rates remain at historically low levels. The stock market is at near record highs. Gas prices, which plummeted in January, now average just over $2 a gallon and provide a big windfall for consumers. The last time gas prices were this low was at the end of the Great Recession in 2009 when demand for gas sank, Mr. McCarty says. UF economists anticipate gas prices to stay low and housing prices to remain stable for the near future. They also expect the Federal Reserve to raise short-term interest rates by June, a move that will ultimately translate into higher mortgage and loan rates. Until then, we expect consumer sentiment to continue to rise, Mr. McCarty says. Conducted Jan. 2-25, the UF study reflects the responses of 417 individuals, representing a demographic crosssection of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a two; the highest is 150. Details of the January survey can be found at bebr.ufl.edu/cci.

VISIT OUR NEW STORES COMING SOON ASICS Church presents screening of film featuring Immokalee coalitionThe Social Justice Ministries of Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church presents a screening of the documentary Food Chains at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 15, at the church. An expose about Americas farmworkers that focuses on the intrepid Coalition of Immokalee Workers, Food Chains highlights myriad problems still present in the agriculture system and how big conglomerates at the top reap huge profits the expense of those at the other end: the farmworkers. The documentary stars Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser, who are also executive producers, and is directed by Sanjay Rawal. Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker narrates the film. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers aim is to ensure a dignified life for farmworkers and a more humane, transparent food industry. Its founders received a 2014 Clinton Global Citizen Award for Leadership in a Civil Society for their creation of the Fair Food Program, a way to work with large retailers including Walmart (whose signing of the program is captured in the film) and Whole Foods that are interested in improving working conditions and pay for these farm workers. Several large chains still have not agreed to participate in the program. Food Chains follows CIW members as they peacefully protest those grocery chains with a request: One penny more per bushel of tomatoes. What we want is a modern industry that no longer has a shadow of slavery, sexual harassment, pesticide abuse where the workers are actually respected for what they are: human beings and an important part of the economy and of the people who put food on the table of millions of homes each day, CIW co-founder Lucas Benitez says in the film. Co-founder Greg Asbed adds, In the 21st century, the responsibility for protecting workers rights has to be shared by the corporations who control where those workers toil. The film premiered at the 2014 Berlin Film Festival and screened subsequently at the Tribeca Film Festival and Guadalajara Film Festival. It is unrated and has a running time of 82 minutes. Attendance at the Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church screening is free. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required. Call 597-5410 to secure a seat.

Only at our special pop-up location in Bo ni t a Bay P laza pop-upPLUS NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATEGood Ol BoyA miles-long traffic jam on Interstate 20 near Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Jan. 25 and on into the next morning was caused by an 18-wheeler that jackknifed and overturned when the 57-year-old driver took his hands off the wheel to pull out a tooth with his fingers. Efforts to haul the truck from the roadside required an hours-long detour of traffic off of the interstate. (The drivers mission was successful; he had the tooth in his pocket when rescued.) Unclear on the concept Luis Moreno Jr., 26, was pursued by police in Fort Lee, N.J., after he entered the carpool lane approaching the George Washington Bridge in January because he appeared to be alone in his SUV. After ignoring several signals to pull over, he finally stopped and, when informed of his offense, told the officer, I have two passengers in the back and rolled down a window to show them (in the vehicles third row), apparently satisfying the officer. However, as Moreno pulled away, one passenger began screaming and banging on the back door. Moreno sped off with his hostages, but was subsequently stopped again and charged with kidnapping and criminal restraint (but no HOV violation). Mike Montemayor, until recently a county commissioner in Laredo, Texas, pleaded guilty to bribery charges in June and had argued in January 2015 that he should get a light sentence because, after all, he had subsequently helped FBI agents in a sting against three other officials accused of bribery. However, the prosecutor immediately countered that Montemayor had in fact tried to steal the recording devices and Apple computer the FBI had furnished him to do the undercover work. (He got six years in prison and a $109,000 fine.) Compelling explanations Briton Roberto Collins, 51, was sentenced to 13 months in jail by Manchester Crown Court in January after being caught standing on a ladies room toilet and peering into the next stall. He told police he stood up only to better scratch an itch and was in the ladies room only because, wearing faulty glasses, he thought it was the mens room. Scotsman Dean Gilmartin, 25, actually persuaded a judge at Perth Sheriff Court in January of his innocence that he might not have been masturbating at the front window of his home. He admitted he was nude (changing clothes), but pointed out that he plays musical instruments and was probably just picking out tunes on his ukulele (rather than holding his genitals and moving side to side, as a neighbor had charged). Explanation for Child-Porn Possession Never Before Heard: Poet Les Merton, 70, denied in January that he had ever abused children, but had a more difficult time explaining why a child-porn website had his credit card information. Merton holds the appointed title of Cornish bard in Cornwall, England, and is the author of the Official Encyclopedia of the Cornish Pasty and explained in Truro Crown Court that he must have mindlessly entered his credit card information while researching the 19thcentury Russian figure Rasputin. What researchers doEntomologists are not like other people, Wired.com reported in January, revealing that two of them had proudly issued birth announcements for the Human bot fly whose larvae one had let gestate beneath his skin for two months. Scientist Piotr Naskrecki and photographer Gil Wizen had been inadvertently bitten while on assignment in Belize and decided the egg-laying attack on a human was an important opportunity for research. After all, Naskrecki said, he had never seen an adult bot fly crawl out of its host. New world order Last year in Middle East school markets, the worldwide publishing giant HarperCollins was selling a popular atlas whose maps pretended there was no such country as Israel. The space that is Israel was merged into Jordan, Syria and Gaza. The company said it was merely honoring local preferences of potential atlas purchasers, whom HarperCollins presumed were Arabs wishing that Israel did not exist. (In January 2015, the company finally changed course, publicly regretted its decision and recalled all existing stock.) Its Local. Its Entertaining.

Luis Carlos Montalvn and his golden retriever service dog named Tuesday are coming to Naples for three events March 10-12. PAWS Assistance Dogs will host the highly decorated U.S. Army veteran and his canine companion. They will make a presentation at Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples and one at the Naples Daily News, and they will be the honored guests at An Evening with Captain Montalvan & Tuesday in the showroom at DeVoe Cadillac. A 17-year veteran, Capt. Montalvn received two Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart, the Army Commendation Medal for Valor and the Combat Action Badge. Suffering physical and psychological wounds resultant from traumas during war in the Middle East, he found it difficult to cope until he was partnered with Tuesday. An outspoken advocate for veterans and all people with disabilities, he released his first book, Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him, in 2011. It debuted on the New York Times Best Seller list and also made the list in 2012 and 2013. Macmillan Publishers released Tuesday Tucks Me In: The Loyal Bond between a Soldier and his Service Dog, last year. Amazon.com named it Best Nonfiction Childrens Book of 2014. Capt. Montalvn and Tuesday will meet with a select group of local school children at CMon on Tuesday, March 10. From 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, March 11, they will be at the Naples Daily News for a keynote presentation and book signing. General admission tickets are $50; VIP tickets for $100 include reserved seating, private reception and photos with the author and his service dog and a copy of Until Tuesday. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. The Evening with Captain Montalvn & Tuesday begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 12, at DeVoe Cadillac and includes wine and hors doeuvres with Capt. Montalvn and Tuesday in an intimate setting. Tickets are $150 ($300 for patrons). To make reservations for either of the two open events, call 775-1660.

both were founded by the Rev. Jean Paul and are run by himself and several of his children. In addition to providing a variety of academic and athletic programs that serve primarily Haitian children in Collier County, the Paul family has been providing aid to Haitian citizens for years and stepped up their efforts since the 2010 earthquake. Last summer, volunteers from Naples served about 600 meals a day to children and adults in Croix-de-Bouquets, despite the fact they had planned for only 125 children. Theyre all around, says Matt Paul, executive director of the education center. They know were cooking and theyre hungry. Bayshore has a year-round academic program that provides tuition, school supplies and incidental items to about 30 children in Croix-de-Bouquets. An on-site director who provides academic support manages the program in Haiti. According to the World Bank, school participation rates among Haitian children have improved from 78 percent to 90 percent since the earthquake. However, only one-third of 14-year-olds are in the appropriate grade for their age, indicating that quality and consistent access are a problem. Only 15 percent of primary teachers have basic teaching qualifications such as a university degree; remaining percentage of teachers only have a high-school education. The summer volunteers from Naples work with Bayshores Haitian students so that they can continue learning critical thinking skills, verbal skills and English. However, the need for basic goods and services such as food and health care among the whole community, particularly its children, has spurred the volunteers to expand their mission during the trips. Organizers now anticipate that about 150 children will participate in the academic sessions from July 16-27. Attendance includes breakfast and lunch. Many children lost their parents and homes in the earthquake, Mr. Paul says, and now live in one-room shacks and sleep on floors. One reason the education center is expanding this program in is that many of the local families it serves in Collier County are supporting relatives in Haiti. Its difficult for children to focus on their schoolwork when theyre starving, he says, and similarly, its difficult for those in the Haitian community in Naples to focus on their own self-sufficiency when theyre feeding relatives in Haiti. Everybody that has family here has family in Haiti, he says. Theyre all sending money back home. Theyre basically the ones taking care of them. To prepare for the trip, the church and education center are raising funds and soon will start obtaining necessary supplies. Because basic staples such as flour and sugar are so expensive in Haiti, organizers typically procure as much as possible locally and ship the goods south before they arrive. For example, a case of water that costs about $3 in affluent Naples would sell for almost $7 in impoverished Haiti, Mr. Paul says. Donations of supplies from local companies are welcome.. Bayshore Education Center promotes achievement and self-sufficiency among Collier Countys low-income children through a variety of academic and athletic programs and career development. The center also provides English language courses, GED courses and outreach sports leagues to the larger community. To make a donation, visit gofundme. com/kco6gk or call 687-4546. For information about going to Haiti as a volunteer in July, call Mr. Paul at the above number. In addition to adults who will work with the Bayshore students in Haiti, he is seeking doctors, dentists and nurses to make the trip as well to conduct blood pressure and glucose readings, to provide dental check-ups and procedures and to administer antibiotics and pain medications.

Board of trustees steering NCH toward a healthy futureOne important reason NCH has continued to thrive as the health care environment in general has become more precarious is the support we get from the 14 community leaders who compose our board of trustees. In the midst of federal financial pressures from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid, weve been able to slowly increase our market share as Southwest Florida rebounds from the recession. Our trustees have played a key role in this success. At our most recent meeting, we were joined by Ann Blouin, Ph.D., RN, of the Joint Commission, a close professional friend of COO Phil Dutcher. The commission accredits more than 4,000 U.S. hospitals, in its role to educate, examine and direct best practices for quality and safety. The NCH Physician Group is the only medical group certified by the Joint Commission in Southwest Florida. By building a culture that stresses patient safety, quality and continuous improvement, NCH helps realize Joint Commission goals. After spending two days with us, Ms. Blouin was complimentary of the boards and leaderships roles in providing direction to promote learning, transparency and a fair and just safety culture; and to provide the resources and training necessary to improve and exemplify model professional behavior. Beyond its exposure to the Joint Commission, our board at its most recent www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 Parkinsons patients feel better when they think theyre receiving expensive drugsPeoples perceptions of the cost of a drug may affect how much they benefit from the drug, even when they are receiving only a placebo, according to a new study of people with Parkinsons disease published in American Academy of Neurology. Patients expectations play an important role in the effectiveness of their treatments, and the placebo effect has been well documented, especially in people with Parkinsons disease, said study author Alberto J. Espay, M.D., of the University of Cincinnati in Ohio and a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology. We wanted to see if the peoples perceptions of the cost of the drug they received would affect the placebo response. For the study, 12 people with Parkinsons disease were told that they would receive shots of two formulations of the same drug, with the second shot given after the first shot wore off. They were told that the formulations were believed to be of similar effectiveness, but that they differed in manufacturing cost $100 per dose versus $1,500 per dose. Participants were told that the study was intended to prove that the drugs, while priced differently, were equally effective. In reality, the participants received only a saline solution for both injections, but were told they were receiving either the cheap or expensive drug first. Before and after each shot, participants took several tests to measure their motor skills and also had brain scans to measure brain activity. When people received the expensive drug first, their motor skills improved by 28 percent compared to when they received the cheap drug. On one test of motor skills, peoples scores improved by seven points when taking the expensive drug first, but improved by only three points when taking the cheap drug. If we can find strategies to harness the placebo response to enhance the benefits of treatments, we could potentially maximize the benefit of treatment while reducing the dosage of drugs needed and possibly reducing side effects, Dr. Espay said. Dr. Espay said that the placebo response may be stronger in people with Parkinsons because the disease decreases the amount of dopamine in the brain and the placebo effect is known to increase the release of brain dopamine. Dopamine affects movement, but it also affects anticipation, motivation and response to new things. People who receive the shots thinking they received a drug may have an expectation of reward response, which is associated with the release of dopamine similar to the response to the reward itself, he said. The study received extra scrutiny from the universitys review board before it began, since it involved intentional deception of the participants. The review board found that the study complied with federal research regulations that allow waiver of the informed consent requirement, and that the deception would have no adverse effects on the rights or welfare of the participants. After the study, the participants were told about the true nature of the study. Eight of the participants said they did have greater expectations of the expensive drug and were amazed at the extent of the difference brought about by their expectations, Dr. Espay said. Interestingly, the other four participants said they had no expectation of greater benefits of the more expensive drug, and they also showed little overall changes. The study was supported by the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinsons. To learn more about Parkinsons disease, visitaan.com/patients.

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.

Barone, D.C.Chiropractic PhysicianNaples & Fort Myers2590 Northbrooke Plaza Drive, #103 www.BackPainNaples.com At Your Place CHIROPRACTIC NEW PATIENT OFFERBack Pain Adjustments Fun money scholarships require recipients to invest in themselves SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNot far from the coastal communities of Naples and Marco Island is the small town of Immokalee, home to 25,000 year-round residents. As part of a migrant labor network that produces nearly 70 percent of all the nations winter vegetables, Immokalee sees its population swell to 40,000 during the agricultural season. But economic development in Immokalee has lagged behind the rest of Collier County; in fact, nearly half of its residents live below the poverty line. It comes as no surprise, then, that 95 percent of the towns students qualify for free and reduced meals. Since its inception more than 20 years ago, The Immokalee Foundation has been committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in Immokalee, much of which is caused by low income and lack of education. Statistics show 70 percent of adults in Immokalee have less than a high school education, and about 70 percent of graduates do not enter college or pursue secondary education. TIF helps to empower Immokalees youth through programs focused on education, vocation and life skills, all designed to lead kids on their path toward economic independence. The foundation works with local youth to develop a plan that nurtures their development as students, citizens and future professionals. From early reading to college scholarship and mentoring programs, TIF is by their side as they learn, grow and excel. As exciting as it is for students, its not always easy. Students work hard for the opportunities offered to them by the foundation and its supporters. In the Take Stock in Children program, for example, students must pledge to earn good grades, stay drugand crime-free, attend workshops and events, meet weekly with their TIF mentor and volunteer in the community in order to earn a four-year scholarship to a Florida state college, university or vocational school upon graduation. While the opportunity is a tremendous one, it is not a handout. Students must be (and are) determined and passionate about fulfilling their dreams. Recognizing the hard work of the students, Dr. Massoud Eghrari and Tayebeh Eghrari wanted to reward them in a manner in which most were unaccustomed. Through the Massoud and Isabella Eghrari Charitable Foundation, 16 college freshmen have been awarded $500 scholarships. The catch? The recipients must spend the money on themselves and no one else. It was meant to be fun money. To receive the money, the students had to fill out an application with general information and write an essay stating what they would do with the money if they received it. This was hard for them to do because many of them wanted to use the money to take their families out or help them in some way, says TIFs Noemi Perez, who manages the Take Stock in Children program for the foundation. A retired surgeon, Dr. Eghrari has been involved with TIF for about five years. He and his wife set up their scholarship specifically for college freshman because they are new to college life and deserve a break, he says. The students are always studying and not enjoying their youth. They are on full scholarships, and their parents usually have no money to help them out. We want them to enjoy life. Take the money and spend it on themselves. Go to a movie, get ice cream, buy nice shoes or clothes no strings attached. The recipients are: Tania Carrillo, Angel Castaneda, Romero Cruz, Leonel DeLaCruz, Dieusica Dieujuste, Brisa Martinez, Mayra Parra, Kenia Jean Pierre, Silvia Plata, Ethiana Previlus, Santos Quebrado, Englidina Diaz Quintana, Lissa Rinvil, Paula Rosales, Nadege Severe and Esmeralda Valencia. Dr. Eghrari simply hopes they remember somebody helped make it a little easier. Indirectly, it really is educational because it helps the kids relax a little and relieve some of their stress. In turn, that helps them study better. TIF provides a range of programs for students that focus on building pathways to success and economic independence. For more information, including how to volunteer as a mentor, call 430-9122 or visit immokaleefoundation.org. Tayebeh Eghrari, far left, and Dr. Massoud Eghrari, center, awarded fun money scholarships of $500 each to TIF students. Shown with them are the student recipients and some TIF staff members.

Cannot be combined with any other offer.Nina Nordgren, M.D. SWFLEYE.COM BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhen we are on a walk with all three of our dogs and someone stops to pet them, Harper, our 7-year-old cavalier, pushes forward to be first. When they move on to one of the other dogs, she nudges them, as if to say, No, pet me, pet me. Is Harper jealous or envious of the attention received by the other dogs? The answer used to be no that jealousy is a complex emotion not experienced by dogs. Then University of California, San Diego psychology professor Christine Harris, working with former honors student Caroline Prouvost, decided to test whether that was actually true. Their study, published last July in the journal PLOS ONE, found that dogs may well experience a basic form of jealousy. One of the definitions of the word jealous is one who is solicitous or vigilant in maintaining or guarding something. In this case, dogs may have evolved to protect social bonds from interlopers (or in Harpers case, protecting her share of attention from people and making sure other dogs dont get any). When their owners showed affection toward another dog, the dogs in the study snapped and pushed at their owners or the rival dog, which for experimental purposes was a stuffed dog that barked, whined and wagged its tail. In contrast, they were less likely to display jealous behaviors when the owner showed interest in a novel object, such as a jack-olantern bucket, or when the owner read aloud a childrens book that had pop-up pages and played melodies. Dogs were about twice as likely to push or touch owners when they interacted with the stuffed dog (78 percent) as when the owner paid attention to the bucket (42 percent). Thirty percent of the dogs tested tried to get between their owner and the stuffed dog. Our study suggests not only that dogs do engage in what appear to be jealous behaviors, but also that they were seeking to break up the connection between the owner and a seeming rival, Professor Harris said. We cant really speak to the dogs subjective experiences, of course, but it looks as though they were motivated to protect an important social relationship. Your response might be, So what? If youre a dog owner, youve probably seen your dog exhibit jealous behaviors. The research is important, though, because it adds to our knowledge of the canine brain and helps to support the growing body of research indicating that dogs have sophisticated social and cognitive abilities. You probably know as well that pets can be jealous of more than just other dogs. Sometimes they are a roadblock in the path to true love. Its not unusual for pets to resent attention given to a new person in the owners life, whether thats a boyfriend or a baby. They may seek more attention for themselves or even try to insert themselves between the owner and the new person. Thats especially common when the pet is used to getting all the owners attention. Its no surprise he doesnt want to compete with anyone else for it. If your pet is jealous of the new love of your life, seek to create a love triangle the good kind. Have your significant other become the giver of all good things: walks, meals, treats, toys. If the new kid on the block is a baby, provide those things to the dog (or cat) in the babys presence. In both cases, youll be helping your pet develop a positive association with the newcomer, joining best friend to best friend. What could be better than that? Does your dog want to be your only Valentine? He may experience jealousy when you give attention to other dogs or people. PET TALESGreen-eyed monsterCan dogs be jealous? Science says, Yes.

Seriously shes 42 years old and she was addressing invitations to a cocktail soiree shes planning. My handwriting just looks weird and sloppy and illegible, she told me. Im so used to texting and emailing and Facebooking that Im worried weve forgotten how to write. Not only does she have a point, it gets worse. Personally, Im a voice texter. I dont have the patience to deal with the keyboard on my iPhone 6. Its easier to just touch the microphone icon and speak my text: Hi comma honey exclamation point I hope youre having a good day smiley face see you after work period. I voice text so much that I actually find myself using punctuation when Im in real live conversation on the phone. Ive had friends stop me and say, You do realize were talking to each other, right? You dont have use words like comma and question mark, okay? As Valentines Day approaches, I remember my mother buying those big boxes of Valentines cards at the grocery store and how I actually loved writing the names of all my grade-school friends on the envelopes and signing my name to the cards even if it did take hours. These days, technology makes it so I dont even have to write checks anymore, and even during the holidays, most people I know just throw a family photo up on their Facebook page with a generic caption along the lines of Happy Holidays to All. Its sad. And Im missing the art of cursive. Even though my husband and I have been together for 10 years, this Valentines Day Im going to CVS to buy a pen with red ink and I intend to actually hand write him a sweet Valentine. One in which Ill write my punctuation out rather than say it. I might even dot my Is with hearts and draw some happy faces. You remember those, right?

B5 A grand affairThe Naples Grande celebrates a new look, and more Networking photos. B7-8 Those who brush their teeth each morning, work in the same office or play on the same golf course each day and sleep in the same bed each evening are sometimes unable to recognize the most salient fact of life on the southwest coast of Florida: Everything around them is changing, and much more rapidly than in almost anywhere else in the United States. The reason is so obvious that its sometimes invisible: The region is sunny, warm and beached. Millions of people with money, therefore both baby boomers and their children, the so-called millennials want to move here. And will. That truth will become instantly apparent to the comfortably adjusted when they see Russ Weyers maps. The maps show growth in the past, growth now and (this is the kicker) growth in less than 50 years, from Lake Okeechobee southward. The difference is astounding even to a casual observer. Mr. Weyer and his maps, along with others who have spent years thinking about how these changes might go down, will appear in sobering but exciting person on the campus of FGCU beginning Friday, Feb. 20, at the firstGrowing fastERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLYGrowth along high demand coastal areas such as downtown Fort Myers will be the topic of a series of Urban Land Institute meetin gs.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 jeannette SHOWALTER, CFAshowalter@ww fsyst ems.com MONEY & INVESTINGLove and moneyIn life, there are many different love issues and many different money issues that each of us will face. When the two, love and money, are entwined in a relationship as an important foundation in relationship, there is plenty of room for confusion, misunderstanding and weighty problems. Unresolved, some issues will ultimately lead to the relationships failure. Many columns will offer a list of the key questions the five key questions, the 10 key questions to ask of a prospective mate. The list might also be applied to existing relationships to further a solid footing. In actuality, there are hundreds of key questions to be asked. Obviously, as you do not want your relationship to turn into an interrogation or negotiation, you are wise to not ask all of the several hundred questions, especially on Valentines Day. Here are some questions that you might ask or use as topics for better understanding your mate or potential mate. These questions will hopefully initiate a process where you start to think of the most relevant questions and move forward with a process of communication about these topics. You wont know an answer to all the questions but you should be able to answer some with certainty before getting very serious in a relationship. Most importantly, you need to develop skills, tools and a certain comfort-level to discuss these topics. It is positive problem resolution that is critical to relationships. First, understand each others childhood (e.g., how respective parents addressed money issues and the type of life to which each was accustomed). It will provide insight into possible minimal expectations and desires in lifestyle; attitudes toward saving, investing, and borrowing; nature and degree of charitable giving; how post-secondary school education was financed; if families lived above their means or were frugal or had a healthy enjoyment of material objects; if families attempted to control immediate and extended family though money; plans for each respective persons inheritance, if such is known; etc. Second, ask questions about how the couple address money issues and create financial plans. Will there be joint or separate checking and other accounts? Will it be one persons role to pay bills and file taxes? How will important capital expenditure decisions be made? What expenditures are priorities? How much will it cost to raise a family? When will the couple start a family and how many children are desired? Will a home serve a housing purpose only or will it be a meaningful investment tool? And so on Third, share full disclosures of assets and liabilities, particularly liabilities of credit cards, student loans, auto loans and personal financial institution debts; fully disclose any assets to be kept in trust and outside sharing by the marriage; how existing children will be treated financially and child-related responsibilities ; etc. Fourth, its important to note if either party has a behavior or addiction. Gambling, drugs, alcohol, compulsive shopping, etc. these addictions are destructive to the family and, even if perceived not to be, they are expensive, they are an allocation of money to nonproductive uses and can expose the entire family to financial liabilities. Fifth, what financial responsibilities will they have toward their parents and siblings, if any? It might be that elderly parents have medical needs not covered by their health plans; that parents need financial assistance; that parents will want to move to be close to them and/ or a parent might need to live within the household; etc. While couples cannot predict many money issues that they will confront, they certainly can address money issues that they know they will face. Unfortunately, it is a very long list of known financial issues and discussion will take the couple into areas that are uncomfortable, stressful and problematic. But that is exactly where you need to tread. It does not mean that both will be in total agreement before the discussion or after. But it allows for practice to bring the issue to the table for rational, respectful and loving conversation. If you cannot get through the above laundry list without major arguments, then chances are not good that you will be able to handle issues in marriage or a long-term relationship. If you are a parent whose child is considering a long-term future with someone, it is probably a good idea to discuss the importance of generally agreed-upon financial understandings before their deep dive into a permanent relationship. If the parent sees any red flags, as difficult as it might be to do so, he would be wise to share such concerns with his child. Every parent can remember the days when his hormones raged and blinded his objectivity in his own relationships; so too with his children. How best for parents to share? Humbly. No lectures. Content? The parent might share his or her financial relationship mistakes. Few children refuse to listen to a parent offering a humble assessment of his own mistakes. The parent can make clear that the child can either learn from someone who loves her deeply or learn from the world and then she will learn the hard way.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 of the Urban Land Institutes f our-part series (for anyone not afraid to look forward): Here We Grow Again. The sessions, each lasting two hours in the morning and beginning with a regional overview next week on Feb. 20, include future looks at Collier County (March 20); Lee County (April 17); and Charlotte County (May 15). The price is $160 for all four, or $50 per session (its less expensive if youre a member of ULI. See, swflorida.uli.org, or call (800) 321-5011 to attend). We have 1.2 million people here now in the southwestern counties, says Mr. Weyer, the president of Real Estate Econometrics in Naples and a ULI organizer. He has spent his career working either for developers or as a consultant to them in Ohio, Nevada and Florida. By 2035 well have 1.8 million. By 2060, we may have about 3.2 million. Nobody disputes the demographics he cites, or his maps. The questions they engender are three: Can we create sustainable living environments for all those people? If so, where? And as we do, who will get rich doing it? The growth is coming, says Tim Byal, the ULI chair of Southwest Floridas district council, and an official with the Miromar Development Corp. But there are better alternatives to accommodating that growth if we plan for it, he adds. Instead of constantly having fights each time on a specific issue (in which development is questioned), how can we get a more long-time regional view of growth? How can we say: Here are areas that make sense for us to encourage growth to occur. Heres the infrastructure we have or need and heres why it should happen here, as opposed to there? Lets educate one another as to where those places are, and then work towards accomplishing the goal. In the contemporary map of development from Lake O. southward, the massive red clots of population up and down the east coast are flanked by a more thinly parceled stream of clots up and down the west coast; in between appear small towns, along Everglades National Park (all green) and unknown areas (all gray). But on the future map, the west coast clots have thickened to resemble those of the east coast, beginning near Sanibel Island at the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River. And they extend not just north and south, but eastward from the Gulf of Mexico like a main vein, almost to the shores of Lake O. As it stands now, says Wayne Daltry, the retired head of Smart Growth who spent his career weighing the changes up and down the west coast from a public standpoint and with no profit incentive, the outc ome is always in the planning, and in the vision. And the ULI a nonprofit, non-lobbying, nationwide organization of private and public developers and planners with individual regional chapters has its own vision of growth. They seriously differ from the urban renewal advocates, and, frankly, the greater part of the sustainable communities crowd, in that the increase in teeming masses (in their view) should go into new settings, since there is a terrible inertia in fixing the old ones, short of razing them, Mr. Daltry explains. Thus, the divisive impact fee issue in Lee County, when commissioners reduced impact fees by 80 percent for the last two years, costing Lee taxpayers millions in lost revenue from builders and developers that would have been used to paid for roads, schools and parks as the population swells, could have a different outcome if leaders had a different vision, says Mr. Daltry. For example, if the vision is new communities, then developers and builders might pay full impact fees for those new communities, which would require new infrastructure. But if the vision is infill razing and then recreating old communities that can accommodate greater populations near work and shopping centers then perhaps impact fees could be reduced for developers doing that work, to encourage them. There are other crucial regional questions, in whose answers some will grow wealthy, some will not, and some will be disappointed. In Charlotte County, for example, the massive Babcock Ranch development that would create a need for huge road and other infrastructure improvements deep into the center of Lee County remains a question; and in Glades and Hendry counties, officials are aggressively lobbying for an huge international airport and surrounding development that would not only make the sugar cane fields near Clewiston much more valuable, but change the way the business of imported flowers and other fresh products from South and Central America into the United States might occur. And in south Lee County and Collier, development of lands including the huge DRGR set aside to preserve future water supplies the Density Reduction Groundwater Recharge lands is a question likely to incite conflict. But such conflict can be reduced with a vision, which is the major part of what the Urban Land Institute aims to help sharpen up, says Carla Coleman, the Florida director, based in Broward County. When she arrived there 40 years ago, she recalls, there were about 700,000 residents roughly the number in Lee County, today. And now there are 1.8 million in Broward. I dont think folks over there (on the southwest coast) have come to grips with the fact that there is going be a lot of growth, she says, speaking with a voice of experience. And theres not a lot you can do about growth. Its all about how you manage it. If regional thinking and planning is how you do it, then the four-part series, Here We Grow Again, is a good start. Debrah Forester, a ULI organizer and Charlotte Countys Economic Development Manager, has a realistic view, perhaps, about regional thinking. Especially as the economy picks up and people remain comfortable. Regionalism is hard to grasp and implement, she says. We dont have a regional authority to implement things. We have Charlotte, Lee and Collier and they meet, but there is no real authority. I dont know if we would get to a point and have that one entity. But opening communications between our local jurisdictions is the key step. And making those connections between communities is what is important.

Unknown hackers apparently stole personal identifying information from current and former Anthem customers, including names, addresses, Social Security numbers, dates of birth and other information that can be used for identity theft. Anthem has set up a website with information on the breach, but Better Business Bureau recommends that consumers always go to a companys main website first and follow links from there. Scammers often take advantage of data breaches and subsequent confusion to set up spoof websites and send phishing emails. BBB offers the following suggestions for consumers concerned that their PII has been stolen (also available at bbb. org/breach): Do not take a wait-and-see approach as you may have done with breaches involving credit card data. You must act quickly. Breaches involving Social Security numbers have the potential to be far more detrimental to victims, and the damage can be difficult to repair. Consider taking a preemptive strike by freezing your credit reports. This will not impact existing credit cards and financial accounts, but will create a roadblock for thieves seeking to create fraudulent accounts using your personal information. At a minimum, if you know your Social Security number has been compromised, place a fraud alert on your credit reports. While less effective than a freeze, this will provide an extra layer of protection. If you are an Anthem customer, take advantage of the free credit monitoring services Anthem will be offering to breach victims. While this is not a preventative measure, this will alert you to new accounts or inquiries using your Social Security number so that you can act quickly to repair the damage. Vigilance is key. Regularly check your credit reports at annualcreditreport.com for unauthorized charges or other signs of fraud. (Note: This is the only free credit report option authorized by the Federal Trade Commission.) For more information and complete step-by-step guidance on repairing the damage caused by identity theft, visit consumer.ftc.gov and click on Privacy & Identity. Expect that scammers will take advantage of this data breach to send out phishing emails and other messages that appear to be from Anthem, a credit bureau or other legitimate companies. Do not click on links from any email, text or social media messages about this or any other data breach. If your business collects customer information, make sure you protect your customers data. If a data breach can happen to a major corporation with significant data security measures in place, it can happen to any business. Check out BBBs updated online guide Data Security Made Simple at bbb.org for free information on how to create a data security plan. And for more information about scams, check out BBB Scam Stopper and sign up to receive weekly Scam Alerts. According to its BBB Busines Review Anthem Inc. also operates as Wellpoint Inc., Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, and Administar Federal Inc. However, not all Blue Cross & Blue Shield companies are part of the Anthem network. If you arent sure if your insurer is affected by this data breach, call the number on the back of your card or go directly to your insurers website. To check the reliability of a company and find trustworthy businesses, visit BBB.org. For more consumer tips visit BBBs News Center and like BBB on Facerbook.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. You Can Beat InflationIts dangerous to ignore the effect of inflation on your finances. Inflation has averaged around 3 percent annually over long periods, enough to turn a 10 percent average annual return on your investment into a real return of 7 percent.At that rate, what would cost you $100,000 today will cost you more than $240,000 30 years from now. Worse still, if your money is earning 2 percent in a savings account while inflation is 3 percent or more, youre losing, not gaining, ground.You can combat inflation with stocks, though, especially dividend-payers. Many solid companies sport dividend yields of 3 percent or more these days. Better still, healthy companies tend to raise dividends over time. Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F), for example, recently yielded 4 percent, while Verizon Communications yielded 4.6 percent. (The Motley Fool has recommended both and owns shares of Ford.)If you dont want to pick your own stocks, you might opt for a dividendfocused mutual fund or exchange-traded fund (ETF), such as the iShares Select Dividend ETF (DVY), which recently yielded 3 percent. Even stocks and stock funds that dont offer much or any dividend yield can still serve you well by appreciating over time. Meanwhile, the overall stock market has averaged close to 10 percent annually (including dividends) over the long haul. Perhaps consider a simple broad-market index fund, such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY). It offers the markets return without your having to decide which stocks to buy or sell, and when to do so. It recently carried a 1.9 percent yield. Remember that many companies can offset the rising costs of materials or other inputs by increasing the prices they charge their customers. So they become a participant in our national inflation, rather than a victim of it, and shareholders continue to profit from them. In the bond world, look into TIPS, which are bonds with interest rates that factor in inflation. As you go about your financial life, keep inflation in mind. A Regrettable SaleI would have to say that not holding on to Apple stock was the biggest mistake I ever made. I bought low and sold at a profit, and then guess what it went up to where I could have made an even better profit. It was dumb not to hold. I wanted to make a profit. Oh, well. S., onlineThe Fool Responds: Selling a stock too soon is a common regret, and Apple is a stock many are regretting having sold. Its not crazy to aim for a profit and to sell once you get the profit you were aiming for. But if you take some time to study the company more, you might find that its still performing well, still has a bright future and is not yet overvalued. If so, hanging on can make sense. You might also sell just some of your shares, locking in a profit, while retaining the rest. Remember, too, that its not necessarily too late to buy back into a stock you sold and still like. Since you wrote to us, Apple stock rose another 40 percent. Drilling for DollarsIf youre looking for long-term growth and dividend income, drill down into Chevron (NYSE: CVX). Its dividend, recently yielding 4.1 percent, is one of the highest among familiar blue chip stocks. Since peaking this past summer, Chevron shares lost more than 20 percent of their value thanks to the rapid decline in oil prices. The companys latest quarterly results featured earnings 30 percent lower than a year ago, with management cutting back exploration and production spending plans. While earnings will almost certainly suffer in the near future if low oil prices linger for a while, it should just be a temporary issue. Many experts expect oil to rebound from below $50 per barrel to at least the $70 to $80 range by the end of 2015. The analysts who follow Chevron are projecting a decline in earnings in 2015 and a rebound in 2016. Chevron has delivered impressive performance over the years, with total returns averaging 13 percent annually for the past 30 years, and it has raised its dividend for 29 consecutive years. While it may take a couple of years for the oil sector to truly rebound, Chevron will pay you a very nice dividend for your patience and should produce solid returns in your portfolio for years to come. (The Motley Fool has recommended Chevron.) I was founded by my namesake in Germany in 1886 as a workshop for precision mechanics and electrical engineering. By 1902 I offered a high-voltage magneto ignition system with innovative spark plugs.

I apply for thousands of patents each year. Who am I? (Answer: The Bosch Group) Up and DownQWhy do bond prices rise when bond yields fall? C.T., Starke, FloridaABond prices react to changes in interest rates. Consider this example: If you buy a $1,000, 30-year bond with a 3 percent interest rate, itll pay you $30 per year until maturity, when you get your $1,000 back. But if interest rates rise, that 3 percent wont be able to compete with newer bonds higher rates. The value of your bond will have to drop to make it more attractive to buyers. Someone selling that bond, then, might have to accept, say, $950 for it instead of its original $1,000. The buyer will receive the same $30 annual payments and will receive the same $1,000 at maturity. When rates drop, bond prices rise, as people will pay a premium for higher-yielding bonds.

Its important to concentrate your money on your best ideas the companies you believe hold the most promise. If you think a certain 20 stocks are most likely to increase your wealth, its silly to spread your limited funds over an additional 10 or 20 (or more) lesspromising stocks. The more stocks you own, the harder it is to keep up with all your holdings, which you should aim to do at least every quarter. (Less often can be OK with some stable, established blue chips.) With 50 companies in your portfolio, youll have 200 quarterly reports to read each year. Yikes! Conversely, owning too few stocks can be risky. Got a question for the Fool?

C21 Naples Music Club brings back Cuban piano star BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comNaples Music Club celebrates its 50th anniversary this year with a Musical Safari & Jazz Concert Saturday, Feb. 21, at North Naples United Methodist Church. The celebration culminates in a 7 p.m. performance by world-renowned Cuban pianist Ignacio Nachito Herrera, who is returning to Naples after his 2013 performance with ArtsNaples World Festival. Mr. Herrera was a child prodigy who first stunned Cuban audiences when he performed Rachmaninoffs Concerto No. 2 at the age of 12 with the Havana Symphony Orchestra. He went on to perform at many of the worlds finest concert halls and eventually joined the Cuban Orchestra Cubanismo as its pianist, musical director and arranger. Today hes best known for his high-energy performances that combine classical piano with Cuban and Latin rhythms like cha-cha and guaracha. We will take everybody back to those 1950s Havana nightclubs, he says about his upcoming performance for the Naples Music Club. I am very excited and I hope everybody will like it. Club member Trey Parker, co-chair of the golden anniversary celebration, says the club invited Mr. Herrera because his style of music and his background as a musician who grew up in Communist Cuba appeals to many of the clubs students members and their parents. One of the key reasons we wanted to invite him is hes a shining example of how young talent can blossom in difficult circumstances, Mr. Parker says. He has a very relevant story for a lot of young performers and their families.season2015guideNAPLES ARTS
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS In love, quantity is sometimes all that counts My friends are always laughing at the number of dates I accept. Him? they say, a little self-righteously. Why would you go out with that guy? For a long time, I didnt know how to answer them. Then my friend Barb sent me an email about proliferation. Barb and I are always talking writing ways to do it better, easier, more efficiently; how to dig down deep in order to produce pieces that sparkle; the best methods for delivering work with character and heft. In this particular message, she relayed a story about a ceramics class where the professor decided to perform an experiment. He began the school year by dividing the class into two groups. One groups assignment: to produce a single exceptional work of art. The second group was assigned a very different goal: simply to produce a lot. This group wasnt tasked with greatness; they didnt need to focus on brilliance. Instead, their grades would be determined solely by the amount of pottery they turned out. A funny thing happened over the course of the semester. The students the professor assigned to create a single perfect piece didnt produce anything. They concentrated so hard on getting it right that they couldnt deliver any work let alone work of substance. The other students, however, turned in excellent pieces, some of them exceptional. By concentrating on quantity, they never got wrapped up in the minutia of idealism. They were free to let themselves go, to approach their projects more loosely, and the results reflected this openness. Do you see where Im going with this? The ceramics class anecdote contains an important lesson about writing: Its better to churn out work without agonizing over the results. The same lesson can be applied to love. I like to think that romance requires a similar looseness, a willingness to be open, to focus on quantity over quality. My perpetually single friends are the ones who worry about perfection, who think a partner needs to be exactly right before they can consider going out with him or her. These friends tote around an exhaustive checklist of all the criteria a suitor must meet: height, assets, education, etc. In their obsession with getting it just right, they miss all the men and women who are nowhere near perfect but who might end up being a better match. I think love is a mystery, steeped in an alchemy none of us understands. We are often surprised by the people we end up loving. The trick is to let these people in, to go on many dates, to give a wide swath of options a try. This is the only way to find our best fit, which is often one we least anticipated. This Valentines Day, I urge you to say yes to the person who doesnt seem quite right. Hell, say yes to everybody. Like in the pottery class, perfection should not be our goal. Instead, we should focus on an expansive look at what life has to offer. That way, when it comes time to reflect back on this time weve been given, youll be proud of the chances you took. Some of them might not be ideal but many of them will be brilliant.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 FLORIDA WRITERSSerge becomes a freelance legal fixer in latest laugh-fest Shark Skin Suite by Tim Dorsey. William Morrow. 336 pages. Hardcover, $26.99. You will laugh so hard that youll fall off the plot lines. But dont worry. Tim Dorsey will help you get back on them, off them and on them again in Shark Skin Suite. What we have here is an episodic, picaresque novel, belatedly in the tradition of Don Quixote de la Mancha. Serge Storms, the hero of record in Mr. Dorseys long-running series, is a knight errant transported to contemporary Florida, a place with plenty of windmills at which to tilt. He doesnt have to imagine adversaries; they are only too real. Serge is an easy-to-love homicidal maniac. His buddy Coleman is his Sancho Panza. OK, Ill drop the World Literature 101 and get back to business. Who are the bad guys of our time? Why, of course the financial institutions that gave us the mortgage foreclosure nightmare and the lawyers who struggled, sometimes unscrupulously, to defend them. Enter Brook Campanella, former flame to Serge and now a young lawyer damsel in distress. Yes, there are good guy lawyers, too, and Serge is cutting every corner so he can to pass as one. After seeing Brook in action, a goodsized Florida firm hires her and quickly gives her a case that would seem to be beyond her. Coupled with one of the firms equally inexperienced staffers, she sets out to argue a class action case against a bank gone wild but that has powerful, corrupt legal representation. There are hints of collusion between Brooks firm and the banks. Is her assignment a set-up? Is she supposed to fail so that both firms somehow win? Guess what? Brook turns out to be so darn good that shes winning the case! That wasnt the plan. Perhaps it would be best if she not continue. Maybe she can be discredited, or frightened, or worse. Her co-council disappears. Whos next? Where is Serge? He seems to be on a bender of feverish imagination and unchained impulse, often accompanied by drugged-out Coleman and with a shifting retinue of other strange characters. We follow Serge as he scrambles around the state looking for the locales of his favorite set-in-Florida films (even though most were made in Hollywood studios). We observe his attempts to turn his selfinduced legal education into a scheme for bringing him easy money. And we enjoy his relationship with a new buddy, an out of work journalist, as part of Mr. Dorseys hilarious expos of another segment of our times bad guys: the greedy media outfits. Enter Reevis, a new friend and traveling companion who introduces Serge to the sorry world of contemporary journalism. Its kind of like the mortgage industry, only with a bit more glamor, though the glamor is fading. The firms within each industry share the goal of making as much money as possible. This means taking advantage of a gullible public. Newsrooms no longer support carefully researched and vetted projects, but rather ones that can be completed quickly and brought to the public, it would seem, even more quickly. Writers have had to become photographers, and photographers have had to become writers. Deadlines are ridiculous, and support is almost nonexistent and shrinking. The time required for investigatory enterprise is stolen by seminars, such at the CYA seminar on libel law that Reevis employer requires and that Serge gets to attend as Reevis guest. Heres TVs idea of investigative reporting, said Reevis. Hide a film crew, then throw a wallet out in the middle of a mall and see what happens. Eventually, Serges cross-Florida transit and film-setting explorations lead him to Key West, which is the venue for Brooks case. Of course, once there, he has to get her out of harms way. Mr. Dorseys many scenes in Key West, some at the Monroe County Courthouse and many scattered over the islands countless (and often sleazy) attractions, show the author at the top of his game. This is the game of at once appreciating, laughing at and finding totally ridiculous the zany elements in Floridas culture. And yet, Mr. Dorsey clearly loves the place. He couldnt sell so many books writing about any other state. His shrewd perceptions and his surgical skill at lancing the jocular vein make Shark Skin Suite a high-spirited, dizzying romp. This book doesnt just describe a street carnival in Key West. It becomes one. 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. philJASONpkjason@comcast.net DORSEY Book signingsMeet Tim Dorsey and have him sign his book for you. >> Sunday, Feb. 15: 3:30 p.m. at Sunshine Booksellers on Marco Island; 6 p.m. at Barnes & Noble at Waterside Shops in Naples >> Monday, Feb. 16: 1 p.m. at Sanibel Island Bookshop on Sanibel Island; 7 p.m. at Barnes & Noble in Fort Myers >> Tuesday, Feb. 17: 1 p.m. at the Pine Island Library in Bokeelia; 3:30 p.m. at Sandman Book Company in Punta Gorda LOCAL SPORTS TAVERN FEATURING: OVER 30 BEERS ON TAP WITH ROTATING CRAFT BEER SELECTIONS!

A native of Mendenhall, Miss., Patrick Smith moved to Florida in 1966. He was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 1999 and in 2002 received the Florida Historical Societys Fay Schweim Award as the Greatest Living Floridian. He died in 2014.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 ARTS COMMENTARYPainting an emotional picture in Red The life of an artist is a difficult one. You have to fight to stay true to your vision. Your work may be misunderstood, misinterpreted. You delve deep into your emotions, expressing them through paint and canvas. And, if youre especially inspired or gifted, these inanimate instruments become a living thing. Red, John Logans Tony Awardwinning play, looks at two years in the life of Abstract Expressionist Mark Rothko, when he was commissioned to make a series of paintings for the Four Seasons restaurant on New York Citys Park Avenue in the newly designed Seagram building by Philip Johnson and Mies van der Rohe. Rothko was going to receive $35,000 for his work, a good chunk of money in the late 1950s. He was creating a number of paintings from which he would select a handful to hang on the restaurants walls. He envisions a chapel, a sacred space for his work, where people could contemplate his paintings. Its a challenging play for both actors and directors, and after seeing it, I wonder if this time The Naples Players, a community theater, has attempted something a little beyond their skills, though I do commend them for attempting the play. Mark Vanagas, one of the Players most talented actors, portrays the great artist. Hes been so consistently terrific in all other productions hes acted in I was really looking forward to this one. Mr. Vanagas has the uncanny ability to transform himself, chameleon-like into any character he plays. But I didnt find his Rothko all that believable. The painter lived in Latvia until he was 10, then moved to Portland, Ore., and then to New York City. But the Rothko in this production doesnt speak like a Jewish immigrant from Russia. Theres no accent, neither Slavic nor New York. He speaks rapidly, like a used car salesman trying to put one over on you. He rushes through the script as if the buildings on fire but they have to finish the play before they can leave. I would have preferred more peaks and valleys, better pacing. His walls are always up; there is no vulnerability. It is difficult to get a feel for the artist. Peter Brian Kelly as Ken, the other actor in this two-man play, transforms almost in front of our eyes. Nave and awe-struck, this young artist from Iowa actually dresses in a suit for his first day as the great artists assistant. Hes timid, unsure of himself, but we see him grow in confidence as the various scenes (and months) pass. Hes especially outstanding in a scene recalling a traumatic event from his childhood, as waves of different emotions wash over his face. The two have an intriguing scene together where they put a red background wash on a canvas. Director Barry Cavin, who teaches at Florida Gulf Coast University and is on the board of Ghostbird Theatre Company in Fort Myers, has made the decision to have the canvas face away from the audience. We see the shadows of the two artists through the thin canvas as they slap red paint on it. The event is almost sexual; afterward, Ken stretches out on the studio floor, exhausted, spent, while Rothko smokes a cigarette and caresses the canvas like a lover. But the canvas itself is too small. (Rothkos Seagram paintings were larger than 9-by-10 feet.) And I was surprised to see actual brushstrokes, not a wash of color. Other than this one canvas, viewed from the back, we dont get to see any of the paintings; theyre all hung, by a pulley system, above the tiny studio space. Everything else is in our imagination; were denied the pulsing, vibrant colors, the life of the art. The two often stare out at the audience, looking at artwork hanging on the studio walls. And in one instance, Rothko walks to stage right, bucket and paintbrush in hand, about to glob bright red paint onto an unseen canvas. That scene caused nervous laughter in the audience, as they waited to see if the people sitting in the audience would get thick red paint flicked onto them. Its unintentionally humorous and also pulls everyone out of the play, as were now focusing on the people sitting in the audience. The small Tobye Studio both works for the play and against it. Its intimate. But its size limits the set, designed by Jason Sherwood. There are no stacks of paintings against the wall. Theres not even a door to the studio, just theater curtains. Its a somewhat generic space, with a row of shelving. And its the neatest, cleanest artists studio Ive ever seen. No drop cloths. No paint-spattered floor. You get the feeling that if Rothko had spices, theyd be alphabetized and stacked in perfect rows with all the labels at the same exact angle. The space just doesntfeel like a working artists studio. Especially not one who worked on such a large scale. The play examines the cycle of art; how Rothko was once a young upstart of an artist who crushed Cubism with his Abstract Expressionism. Now an older artist, he finds his style in danger of becoming pass by Pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns. He fights to stay relevant, to create art that will outlive him and still speak to people. He fears his own mortality and possible insignificance. Im scared of the absence of light, he says. everything worthwhile ends, he acknowledges. We are in perpetual process now: creation, maturation, cessation. Mr. Vanagas does give us some wonderful moments: describing a painting by Caravagio, who illuminates the painting from within, and Mattisses audacious painting The Red Studio. What is red? he questions. The two artists, one established, one just beginning, name colors scarlet, crimson, magenta, plum, coral but then start naming a multitude of things that are red: lipstick, rouge, traffic lights, blood. Mr. Vanagas also has a powerful moment describing a scene at the Four Seasons restaurant, disdainfully saying how it felt like forced gaiety at gunpoint. He rails against those who think art should be pretty or match their sofas. Wheres the discernment? he asks. Wheres the arbitration that separates what I like from what I respect, what I deem worthy, what has significance? At another point he declares, I am here to stop your heart. You understand? I am not here to make pretty pictures. This production of Red offers lots of food for thought, but not enough emotion. While not transcendent, its a worthy, though flawed, attempt. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Red>> When: Through Feb. 28 >> Where: In the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre, Naples >> Cost: Tickets start at $30 >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org Mark Vanagas, left, as the artist Mark Rothko and Peter Brian Kelly as his assistant, Ken.

That difficult person who appears to be deliberately stalling your project might just need to be reassured of the value she or he brings to it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Good news! Expect to feel re-energized now that youve gone through that stressful energy-depleting period involving a lot of changes. Now, go out there and show them what you can do. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) There could be some negative reaction to your tough stance when making a recent decision. But overall, your efforts result in well-earned recognition and all that can follow from that. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your financial situation seems confusing, even for the fiscally savvy Bovine. Maybe its the conflicting advice youre getting. Check it out before things get too tangled to unknot. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relaxed attitude goes a long way in helping you deal with any of lifes irritants that might be popping up this week. Youre also a reassuring role model for others in the same situation. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your aspect favors creativity, which should persuade you to work on your artistic projects. If time is a problem, prioritize your commitments so that your work isnt compromised. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Scrutinize all the job offers that interest you. Most are honest and worth considering. But a few might not be completely forthcoming about what the job is and what the salary and benefits are.

This could cause problems down the line with others who are involved in that persons private life.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 C13 CONTRACT BRIDGEThe right play at the right timeBY STEVE BECKERThere is usually very little difference between playing a hand well and playing a hand perfectly, but occasionally this slight difference has a substantial effect on the outcome. West led a spade against four hearts, and South, seeing four probable losers one of which had to be averted for the contract to be made decided that his only real chance was to find East with the king of clubs. Declarer hoped to establish a 10th trick by leading a low club from dummy toward his queen, planning later to discard one of his losers on dummys ace of clubs. Accordingly, South took the spade lead with the ace and played the king of hearts to dislodge the ace. He expected that dummys Q-10 of trumps would then provide him with the two entries he needed to accomplish his purpose. But East ducked the king of hearts and thereby foiled Souths plan. Declarer could not recover from this setback and eventually finished down one. South could and should have made the contract by leading the seven of trumps to dummys ten at trick two! East can do no better than win with the ace and return a spade. Declarer wins, leads the eight of trumps to dummys queen and returns a low club, taken by Easts king. The defenders cash their spade trick, but South is home free. Whatever is returned, he wins, cashes the queen of clubs, leads the three of trumps to dummys four and discards the jack of diamonds on the ace of clubs. Observe that East cannot stop the contract by refusing to take dummys ten of trumps at trick two. South counters by leading a low club from dummy at trick three and later leads the heart eight to dummys queen to produce the same outcome.

Rated PG-13.Black Sea (Jude Law, Scott McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn) A recently fired and bitter submarine captain (Mr. Law) takes a rogue group on a treasure hunt in the depths of the Black Sea. It doesnt always use logic, but its tense and engaging when it needs to be. Rated R.Still Alice 1/2(Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart) A 50-year-old linguistics professor (Ms. Moore) finds her life radically changed after shes diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers disease. Its a heartbreaking story, made more palpable by a great performance from Ms. Moore and solid supporting turns from Mr. Baldwin, Ms. Stewart and Kate Bosworth. Rated PG-13.The Boy Next Door (Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Kristen Chenoweth) Schoolteacher Claire (Ms. Lopez) is stalked by her teenage neighbor (Mr. Guzman) after they share a one-night stand. Everything about it is preposterous, and its yet another new low for Ms. Lopezs acting career. Rated R.Blackhat (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) fights with local leaders, police, and President Lyndon Johnson (Mr. Wilkinson) to secure voting rights for minorities. The story is tedious at times, but Mr. Oyelowos performance is stellar. Rated PG-13.

NoJupiter Ascending is bloated sci-fi cheese, an intergalactic and extravagantly over-the-top saga that simultaneously wows and confounds. Its nice to see every cent of a $150 million budget on the screen, but thats not always a good thing. Written and directed by siblings Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix trilogy), the story centers on Jupiter (Mila Kunis), a woman whos destined for great things and true love but who starts the movie cleaning toilets. Even Chosen Ones have to make a living. Soon her life is saved by a half man/half wolf named Caine (Channing Tatum), whom we know is a good guy because early on hes unfairly ambushed by three space goons and heroically/inexplicably fights his way through. Then all the space drama comes, and it feels like a soap opera. Interplanetary siblings Balem (Eddie Redmayne), Titus (Douglas Booth) and Kalique (Tuppence Middleton) control planets throughout the solar system. Earth belongs to Balem, though Titus also covets it. Knowing the rightful heir to owning Earth is Jupiter (the person, not the planet), Titus sends Caine to protect her from Balems henchmen. But theyre captured. Complications ensue. Even when theyve struggled to tell a story, the Wachowskis have always been great at wowing us with action, and they do so again here. The first major set piece starts high above the Chicago skyline and plummets in, around and sometimes through the high-rises, only to end up in the Chicago River and then high atop the city again. With Michael Giacchinos pulsepounding score, its stunning to watch the scene in IMAX 3D, as the aerial action is superbly shot and combined with visual effects to render a truly breathtaking sequence. This, in addition to other solid but not spectacular action, is the Wachowskis at their best. The metaphysical high-mindedness the Wachowskis bring to the story, however, is the pair at their worst. As much as one appreciates them creating their own Star Wars-inspired mythology, the surplus of characters, betrayals and family drama both on Earth and in outer space gives the film a heaviness that makes it harder to appreciate. The Wachowskis are operating on an epic scale here reports say one draft of the script was 600 pages and one gets the sense that theyre trying to incorporate so many elements that the finer points got away from them. Heres another thought to consider: Going into the Oscars on Feb. 22, Mr. Redmayne is the favorite for Best Actor (for The Theory of Everything) while Julianne Moore, who has a fantasy adventure film called Seventh Son opening this weekend, is the favorite for Best Actress (for Still Alice). Neither new release is going to earn them much regard with Academy members, who have until Feb. 17 to cast their votes. But will it actually cost Mr. Redmayne and Ms. Moore votes? Its possible. In 2007, Eddie Murphy was the favorite to win Supporting Actor for his performance as James Thunder Early in Dreamgirls, but then the abominable Norbit opened and dashed his hopes (he lost to Alan Arkin for Little Miss Sunshine). Similarly, in 2013 Jessica Chastain was nominated for Best Actress for Zero Dark Thirty, but its likely she lost some votes with the release of Mama shortly before the ceremony (she lost to Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook). How Jupiter Ascending might affect Mr. Redmayne and Ms. Moore, if it does at all, remains to be seen, but it will be curious to note if anyone points to these films if either of them doesnt win. Back to Jupiter Ascending. Its a popcorn summer movie in the dead of winter, and it doesnt leave us wanting summer movie season to come any sooner. Worse, once more were left yearning for the Wachowskis to be great again. >>Jupiter Ascending originally was slated for release July 18, 2014, but was delayed to the dumping ground that is February because more time was needed to complete more than 2,000 visual effects shots. k W i a W c dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com naplesclubsushi.com 239.261.4332 Located at:2555 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103 *Of equal or lesser value.

Non-resident club memberships with all amenities now available! www.JoinEagleCreek.com For a Personal Tour please call Laura Pelletier 239.417.6111GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB MUSIC CLUBFrom page 1The club has clearly changed its focus over the last 50 years, from being a group of musicians that played private concerts to an organization that has one of the largest arts advocacy programs in the area. Naples Music Club awards more than $40,000 in scholarships each year to local students and has created an outreach initiative that reaches Collier Countys low-income students so they can reap the benefits of a music education. Its an exciting time, club president Myra Williams says. People assume that music club members sit around and play music in their homes and you have to be a musician to be a part of it. My personal excitement is seeing the impact on children who would never have lessons without our support. In 2008, club member Judy Evans introduced a program to pre-schoolers at Immokalees Guadalupe Center that enabled each child to have violin lessons. The curriculum focused on pre-reading skills the preschoolers needed to be successful in future academic endeavors, skills such as left-toright eye movement, coordination, focus and listening skills. In one year, Ms. Evans students kindergarten-readiness skills improved from being in the lowest 25 percent in the state to being among the top 25 percent. Collier County has since adopted the program in its schools with low-income youngsters; Osceola County (Kissimmee) recently won a grant from the state of Florida to start the program in its schools. Skip Hardee, district coordinator for fine arts at the Collier County School District, says the local pre-schoolers benefit tremendously from the violin instruction. Their teachers report that after a month of lessons, students are able to focus for a longer period of time, he says. We find it really helps students as they enter to that reading level, especially their self-confidence. Throughout his musical career, Mr. Herrera benefitted from youth programs much like the ones Naples Music Club provides Collier County students. He continues to work with young musicians to develop their skills and talents and is deeply involved in a variety of musical organizations that serve students of Minnesota and the twin cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, where he makes his home. When I was a student back in the 1970s and s, we always had the opportunity to share different ideas and experiences with great, well-known Cuban musicians, like Frank Fernandez, he says. I decided to pay them back with different, wonderful experiences to the students and let them know we can survive, depending on how much we want to commit ourselves to practice and study. It was important for Naples Music Club to choose a performer for its 50th anniversary who was charismatic and inspiring, so parents can have an example of how musical education benefits their children. The first time we brought him down, everyone just adored him, Mr. Parker says. We found that students in Immokalee just loved him, and their parents found his story very inspirational. Hes a very charismatic and generous musician.

In this groundbreaking new book, based off a 2011 Atlantic magazine cover story, Kate Bolick examines why, how and what the future holds for the growing number of these women. Guided by her own journey as a single woman and her experiences as a writer in New York City, Ms. Bolicks stories give color and life to the statistics she shares about being a single woman in America. To give a more complete view of single women throughout American history, Ms. Bolick weaves in anecdotes from her late mother's life and also profiles five pioneering women from the past century who have defined and embodied being single. These women include such notables as journalist Neith Boyce and essayist Maeve Brennan. Ms. Bolich has richly researched each of these awakeners, as she calls them. By including quotes from their original work, visiting their homes and talking to surviving relatives and friends, Spinster becomes as much a historical read as a commentary on contemporary singleness. And although it's the title of her book, Ms. Bolich puts the somewhat derogatory label of spinster to rest for good, showing how single woman have been a rich, if slightly ignored, part of American history, and how they are influencing culture and lifestyles choices across the country today. If you want to know more about this powerful and intriguing demographic shaping life in America, this is your read. To read more reviews by Molly Ford, visit smartprettyandawkward.com.

That sense of craft combined with his sharply delineated characters and his ability to create results which are both surprising and inevitable make his work a pleasure to behold. The plays in Not All for Love At the Four Deuces, Marilyn at Home, Dress for Success, That Dream Vacation, 4/7, How Was Your War? and ADBIZ are about imagined American icons and ordinary people in many walks of life, the playwright says. His works include mobsters, sex symbols, authors, athletes, highly placed government sources, job seekers and recruiters, frustrated air travelers, talent agents, ladies who lunch (and their fated waiter) and men and women ad executives scheming to run the whole show.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC22 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 KOVEL: ANTIQUESThe lady who made a meridienne the Recamier BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELFurniture often has unexpected names that honor the maker or a connection to a famous person. A Chippendale or Sheraton chair is named for the designer. Larkin desks are named for the company that gave them away. The Wooten desk was named for the maker, Mr. Wooten. But the Recamier sofa is named for the woman who posed for a portrait on the lopsided bench. For many centuries there had been armless benches and window seats small benches with arms at each end that did not block the view from the window. By the 1800s, there were long chairs with the French name chaise longue, made so your feet were kept as high as the chair seat. But by 1800, the seats included the meridienne, a bench with arms but no back made for lounging, not sitting. Madame Juliette Recamier had her portrait painted while stretched out on one of these. The portrait, by Jacques-Louis David, became so famous the Directoire piece of furniture was called a Recamier by the public and the name stuck. The end of the story is strange. When the portrait was almost finished, she hired another artist to do another portrait. David was so angry he never finished his picture. Part of the canvas shows in the backgroundher head was missing details and the artist did not glaze the painting. It was given to the Louvre Museum in Paris in 1826 and because it is unfinished, it has been a guide to the methods and brushwork used by the artist. Recamier sofas have remained in fashion. A Regency-style mid-19th century example was offered at a New Orleans auction in the summer of 2014 with an estimate of $2,000 to $4,000. Like many of these pieces, it has a cylindrical pillow tucked at the base of the scroll arm. But it also has a partially curved back. Q: I have a heavy metal sign that reads Railway Express Agency. Its a diamond shape, 8 inches on each side and 11 inches across the middle. Im wondering if this was a forerunner of This Recamier is a little over 6 feet long. Its mahogany frame has a painted trim and brass casters. No one bought it at an auction in 2014.The estimated price was $2,000 to $4,000.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 C23 UPS or FedEx companies. Does it have any value? A: In 1918, during World War I, the U.S. government took over the railroads and combined several express carriers to form the American Railway Express Company in order to insure safe delivery of material during the war. The railroads were returned to their owners in 1920, after the war ended. In 1929, the assets of The American Railway Express Company were acquired by The Railway Express Agency, a company formed by 86 U.S. railroads. In 1970 it became REA Express, Inc. The company went bankrupt in 1975. There is no connection between the Railway Express Agency, UPS and FexEx. Railway Express signs were made in several sizes and have been reproduced. A sign the size of yours sold for $27 online. Q: My grandmother left me a cookie jar shaped like a barn. Its brown with some details in yellow. The farmers wife is standing in the door to the barn, hands on hips, and the farmer is in the background. It says Dutch Treat in yellow across the front of the barn. There are no markings on it. Who made it and what is it worth? A: This Dutch Treat cookie jar is said to have been made by McCoy between 1968 and 1973, even though there is no mark. It sells for about $50. Q: I inherited a mid-19th century melodeon about 50 years ago. The woman who had it knew nothing about it. The cabinet is in pristine condition and the instrument itself in perfect working condition. Its marked B. Shoninger, New Haven, Conn. How old is it and what is it worth? A: Bernard Shoninger founded B. Shoninger & Company in 1850. The company made melodeons, pianos and organs. The melodeon was invented by Jeramiah Carhart in 1835. He wanted to make an instrument with a softer sound than a reed organ. His sons took over the business in 1898 and only pianos were made after that. The company went out of business in 1929 but Shoninger pianos continued to be made by National Piano Corporation of New York until the 1960s. Melodeons are hard to sell because few people play them. Prices are in the low hundreds of dollars. Q: I am giving my grandfathers antique brass barometer (circa 1930) to my sister for her birthday. Should I polish it, or does that detract from the value? A: Dont polish it. If it needs to be polished, you should have a professional restorer do the job. Someone who repairs clocks might be able to polish it. Tip: The best place to store paintings is in a closet with no exterior walls. The temperature and humidity levels will be the best in your house.

Can you tell me anything about this season? Penny T., via emailA: The OWN original nighttime drama created, written and directed by Tyler Perry recently started its third season with a bang. The series which stars John Schneider, Angela Robinson, Tika Sumpter, Peter Parros and Renee Lawless airs Tuesdays on the Oprah Winfrey Network at 9/8c. I spoke with series star Angela Robinson, who plays the powerful, complex and filthy-rich socialite Veronica Harrington, and I am pleased to report she is nothing like her sharp-tongued character. I really think this is our best season yet, she said of the rest of the season. Every character gets his or her moment, more than any other season. You are going to see different sides to the characters. Sometimes writers like to keep their characters in a box. Mr. Perry doesnt write that way, and so you may see different sides of the characters. Q: I miss Eva Longoria. Will she star in something soon? Olivia F. in ConnecticutA: NBC has given the green light for 13 episodes of a single-camera comedy called Telenovela, which will star Longoria as Ana Maria, the domineering diva star of Latin Americas most popular telenovela, whose off-screen drama rivals that of her on-screen personality. According to NBC president Jennifer Salke: (Longoria) is a perfect fit for Telenovela. Her character will try to navigate the hysteria and high-jinks that everyone must endure in putting together a daily show. Q: I was so excited to see the teaser trailer for Heroes Reborn during the Super Bowl. Do you have any spoilers or news about it? Amelia D., via emailA: As I reported earlier, Heroes Reborn, which will air on NBC sometime in 2015 (an exact airdate had not been set as of this writing), will be a 13-episode event series. Although this reboot will be a brand-new series featuring new and extraordinary characters, Jack Coleman will return as Noah Bennet, aka HRG. Chuck alumnus Zachary Levi has joined the show in an undisclosed role. Regarding other former cast members returning for the reboot, NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt recently revealed: Im not trying to be coy, because we just dont know, but I think youll see several of the old cast popping in.

Whole Foods has a plan BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comIf you havent made a reservation yet for Valentines Day dinner, chances are its too late. Or maybe you and your special someone would rather have your own intimate dinner at home, anyway. In either case, these recipes from Whole Foods add up to a romantic dinner for two thats a step above family fare, but easy enough to prepare in your own kitchen. Pork Medallions with Raspberry Sauce 1 pork tenderloin, about 1 pound 1/4 tsp sea salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 TBS extra-virgin olive oil 2 shallots, finely chopped cup dry white wine 1 cup low-sodium beef broth 1 tsp cornstarch 2 tsp honey mustard 1 pint raspberries Cut tenderloin crosswise into eight pieces. Place cut side down on a cutting board or work surface and press down on each with the heel of your hand, making each piece about 3/4-inch thick. Pat dry and sprinkle on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high until hot, but not smoking. Add pork medallions and cook three to four minutes per side or until just cooked through. Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm. Add shallot to same skillet and cook 30 seconds, stirring. Stir in wine, scraping up any browned bits. Add broth and bring to a boil. Boil five minutes to reduce. Meanwhile, in a small cup or bowl, stir cornstarch into 1 TBS cold water until dissolved. Whisk cornstarch mixture into reduced broth and cook one minute, whisking constantly. Stir in mustard and raspberries and cook just until berries begin to soften, about two minutes. Stir in any juices accumulated from the cooked pork. Spoon sauce over pork and serve. Swiss Chard Wrapped Salmon with Chunky Orange Chipotle Salsa 2 TBS extra-virgin olive oil, divided 1 small organic orange 1 chipotle in adobo sauce (from a can), finely chopped (seeds removed, if desired) Salt and ground black pepper to taste 2 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless fillets farm-raised salmon 2 large organic Swiss chard leaves, trimmed Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease the bottom of a baking dish with tsp oil; set aside. Zest orange and transfer zest to a small bowl. Peel orange and roughly chop, discarding seeds. Add to bowl with zest along with chipotle, tsp oil, salt and pepper. Toss gently; set salsa aside. Brush salmon all over with remaining 1 tsp oil; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, mash the rib of each chard leaf to make it more pliable. Arrange each salmon fillet on one of the chard leaves and spoon half the salsa over each. Wrap salmon and salsa in chard leaves, folding in the leaf ends to make two packages. Arrange in baking dish, seam-sides down. Bake about 15 minutes and serve. Bittersweet Chocolate Tart with Raspberries 11 oz. Green & Blacks Organic Baking Chocolate, finely chopped (can use slightly less) 1 cup heavy cream 2/3 cup lowfat milk 1 large egg and 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten 1 TBS vanilla extract 1/4 tsp sea salt 1 pre-baked 10-inch sweet tart shell 2 cups whipped cream 1 pint fresh raspberries Preheat oven to 350. Place chopped chocolate in a large metal bowl over a simmering saucepan of water to start melting. Meanwhile, heat cream and milk until hot but not boiling. Whisk hot milk mixture into melting chocolate until all chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and set aside. In another large bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla and salt then continue to whisk as you gradually add the chocolate mixture. Pour filling into prepared crust. Bake tart until filling is almost set in center, about 20 minutes (it will firm up more after coming out of the oven). Transfer to rack and let cool 15 minutes. Remove outer ring of pan and serve tart warm with whipped cream and fresh raspberries.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC36 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 CUISINE NEWS Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest welcomes two new signature vintners Myriad Cellars and Quivet Cellars have joined the 2015 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest as signature vintners for the SWFL Childrens Charities signature event Friday and Saturday, Feb. 27-28, to raise funds for local childrens charities.Mike Smith founded Myriad Cellars, which is based in St. Helena, Calif., releasing his first vintage in 2005. He and his wife, Leah, created Quivet in 2006 to showcase single-vineyard wines. Both wineries feature limited production, which means Wine & Food Fest guests are in for a rare treat, since the wines arent widely available. Wine critic Robert Parker has rated several of the Smiths wines in the midand high 90s. Of Myriads Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Reserve Elysian cabernet sauvignon, Mr. Parker wrote: a puff and a whisper away from pure perfection. He awarded the wine 99 points. Mr. Smith, who describes himself as a purist in style, became interested in wines while in college. It wasnt long before he became a collector and found his way to an internet trading site for cult wines. There he met Thomas Brown, then the winemaker at Turley Wine Cellars. When Mr. Brown later struck out on his own, Mr. Smith offered to work for free to learn from his accomplished friend. After three harvests and crushes as a volunteer during which he took a break from working in his own familys business of delivering legal documents he accepted a job with Brown as assistant winemaker and moved his family to St. Helena. Mr. Smith and Mr. Brown continue to collaborate on a variety of labels, including Schrader, Rivers-Marie, Maybach and Tamber Bey. Meanwhile, Mr. Smith has plenty to keep him busy in his own vineyards. He says he considers himself a wine crafter as opposed to a winemaker, because he allows the subtleties of the grapes to determine how the wine develops rather than manipulating it with additives or technology. Every year throws you curve, he says. Its always different. But if you take the best fruit, you dont have to do a lot to it. Mr. Smith also is the winemaker for Quivet Cellars in St. Helena and for Carter Cellars and 12C, both specializing in wines produced from single vineyards. One of his Carter Cellars wines won a rare 100 points from Mr. Parker; five others earned scores of 95 or higher. While he appreciates the praise he receives, Mr. Smith is a strong believer in giving as well. Charitable causes are an important aspect of his business. He says 5 percent of Quivet sales go to charity. He has been involved in the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest for several years. The festival weekend begins with chefvintner dinners Friday evening in host homes from Naples to Captiva Island. The grand tasting and auction takes place Saturday afternoon at Miromar Lakes Beach Clubhouse in Estero. More than $11.6 million has been raised during the past six years. The primary beneficiaries are Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, Florida SouthWestern State Colleges pediatric nursing program and Florida Gulf Coast Universitys music therapy program. The title sponsor is LTC Global Inc. Additional sponsors include FineMark National Bank & Trust, SKANSKA GATES and Sam Galloway Ford Lincoln. Event contributors are Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club, Palm Printing/Printers Ink, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, Angelinas Ristorante, Jasons Deli, Preferred Travel of Naples and Norman Love Confections. Although this years chef-vintner dinners are sold out, tickets remain available for the grand tasting and auction.

The Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday; 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday-Saturday The Full Menu: aznrestaurant.com The Details: We got word that AZN offers lunchtime bento boxes for a steal, so we made a break for an early lunch before the crowds arrived at Mercato. Right before noon, we sat down in a nearly empty restaurant (it wasnt so by the time we left). Im a sucker for curry, so I went with the box that featured the Malaysian stew and was not disappointed. I enjoyed a perfectly sized lunch portion with brown rice, a salad of greens in ginger dressing and a dainty spring roll, all separated into neat little compartments in a black lacquer box. The stew was rich and spicy with healthy dose of vegetables and sizable pieces of chicken. The box was a nice response to the need to find an affordable, balanced meal that conveniently encompasses the five food groups.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC38 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 12-18, 2015 PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: DeRomos Gourmet Market & Restaurant, The Promenade at Bonita Bay, 26811 South Bay Drive, Bonita Springs; 325-3583 DeRomos combination of fresh food market and 250-seat restaurant makes it an attractive destination for foodies and Italo-philes. Skip the fried calamari and zucchini basket and start with Nonnas Beefy Meatballs, which strike a delicate balance between dense and light and are tucked into a luscious pool of Sunday gravy with dollops of remarkably creamy ricotta (made on the premises). The housemade pastas are a must-have. Our intensely flavored Cavatelli DeRomo consisted of tender rolled tubes of pasta tossed with sauted broccoli rabe, sweet Italian sausage made in-house and chewy sundried tomatoes. This dish had a real wow factor. The Vitello Schantinella took a similar approach, combining three proteins tied together with a basil-scented golden sherry cream sauce: tender veal medallions (sliced thickly, browned lightly, yet still pink and juicy within) and jumbo shrimp and plump sea scallops so perfectly done they were barely cooked-through. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2014 Meredays Fine Dining, Naples Bay Resort, 1500 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 7320784 The eponymous restaurant of chef/ owner Charles Mereday is a wonder of gracious service, sumptuous surroundings and the inspired cuisine that its creator simply terms American but that is so much more. This is a superb restaurant and one that should not be missed. I have had occasion to return for meals after the initial review and each has been as memorable as the first. Food is served as multi-course small plates (choose three, four or five courses or sit at the bar and order a large plate) and changes along with the availability of seasonal ingredients. I can vouch for the perfectly crafted heirloom red and gold beet salad with grilled ricotta salada, mint and orange segments; superb seared scallops with arugula and parsnip puree; butternut squash ravioli with tempura-fried squash blossom; Creole shrimp and cheddar grits; grilled salmon on sweet potato puree; crispy duck leg with wild mushroom risotto; and warm sticky toffee pudding with sweet toffee sauce and brown sugar ice cream. Theres an excellent wine list to choose from as well. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere Reviewed September 2013 Osteria Tulia, 466 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 213-2073 This restaurant sits along tony Fifth Avenue, but inside, Osteria Tulia is downright homey, simple and rustic, with food to match. Chef/owner Vincenzo Betulia spent more than a decade at Campiello, and now heads up his own place thats filled with family members creating superb authentic fare. Caponata and fresh bread whets the appetite. House-made ricotta with walnuts and fresh herbs and meatballs napped in tomato sauce and garnished with pine nuts, currants and melted Parmesan were great starters. The roasted chicken was a thing of wonder, tender and succulent, served with farro, acorn squash and locally grown black leaf kale. House-made garganelli with br aised lamb sugo and sheep cheese will make pasta lovers swoon. For dessert, do not miss the ricotta fritters with slow-cooked berries and whipped cream. As befits such a homey establishments, service was warm and nurturing. The chef changed the menu a bit in the summer of 2014 and the additions were as wonderful as those I tasted during the review. Full bar. Food Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2013 Restaurant Bonjour, 2009 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 566-2275 Where Mimis Cooking once stood, now Restaurant Bonjour does business with Bernard Massuger welcoming guests warmly, just as his predecessor, MarieMichelle Rey, once did. He also offers some of the old favorites, and every dish we ordered was beautifully plated. I can recommend the endive and Roquefort salad with sesame vinaigrette and the smoked salmon with asparagus and crisp baguette slices. Bouillabaisse du Gulf features bay scallops, salmon, shrimp and mussels in a delicate saffron bouillon, accompanied by rouille-slathered bread. Roasted duckling came with an outstanding sundried cranberry sauce that was good enough to drink. Warm creme brulee served as an excellent finish to a satisfying meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2013 Sam Bucco Bistro, 14700 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 592-6050 Attention to detail, a staff that delivers excellent service, a worthy wine collection and a menu of well-crafted primarily Mediterranean dishes make Sam Buccos a long-time favorite with a large following. Although the eponymous Sam Tadros has opened another restaurant (Figs Grille) a few miles north, his business partner Adel Khalil ensures that the high standards with which this restaurant opened remain that way. From a tempting list of appetizers, I can recommend the Turkish grilled calamari paired with arugula, endive, lemon and balsamic vinaigrette, as well as the eggplant tourine strips of eggplant layered with fresh mozzarella, avocado, roasted red peppers and tomatoes. Theres pasta for those who want it, but theres so much more as well. Mediterranean shrimp features jumbo shrimp in garlic and herbs served with eggplant timbale, roasted tomatoes, scalloped potatoes and tomato basil oil. For carnivores, the grilled New York strip comes with zesty chimichurri, vegetables, pesto and mozzarella. Bite-sized desserts are perfectly portioned. Try the rice pudding studded with pine nuts and raisins or the coconut Key lime cheesecake. Full bar.

CUISINEThe inside story on The Other Side Bistro chefWatching his mother run a Sanibel Island restaurant while she raised seven children, Brian McCarley learned firsthand the virtues of hard work and preparing natural, wholesome food. As a teenager, he worked his way up from the bottom in restaurants, washing dishes, doing prep work, line cooking and serving even before graduating from Cypress Lake High School in 1992. The lessons learned, along with the experience he has gained working as a chef in various Southwest Florida restaurants since graduating from culinary school in 1999, inform how he runs The Other Side Bistro, his latest acclaimed venture in Bonita Springs. It helps that I have realistic expectations for my staff, he says. I always had more respect for a boss that was hands-on, and thats how I run my restaurant. Chef McCarley generously took some time out from simmering demi-glace and rolling gnocchi to answer a few questions. Q: For someone whos never been to The Other Side, how would you describe the menu and atmosphere? A: Well, I like to say the menu is upscale American with a French hand. We try to keep it simple and focus on making good food. We take a large amount of pride in what we create and always hope it translates to our guests. Our dining room is small, but we only have four-top tables so theres no cramped or jammed-in feeling. It does get loud when we are full though, I know. Our dining room is fairly classic tablecloths, napkins wine glasses, and lots of wine-focused pictures. Our patio is the subject of much debate, being that it overlooks a parking lot, but our hedge of cocoplums is working hard to remedy that. Q: Your place is on the other side of The British Open Pub, and adjacent to a plaza with several restaurants. How has the location worked out for you? A: Great. I have always felt that its a good thing to be around other restaurants. My neighbors are great, too. We borrow things back and forth with the pub. When I needed an extra wine decanter, La Fontanella lent me one of theirs. When my mixer died while I was making pasta dough, Pinas let me use their mixer. Ann from the pub and I also seem to have an herb garden competition, which she is handily winning. Repeat handily. Q: How involved in the business is your wife, Barbara? A: Very much so. She does all the thankless jobs that make a restaurant run. She also is our hostess and public-relations specialist. We have been married 18 years, which is not easy in the restaurant business. She has always supported me in this crazy business. I am sure that to be married to a chef one must be a saint, or crazy, or a little of both. Q: Early in your restaurant career in Fort Myers you became known for your soups, and you still have that delicious five-onion soup on your menu. Talk about why you love making soup. A: Soups are special. They can be a snack, a meal, an appetizer, a palate cleanser, dessert. Or it can remind you of mom or some special date or a great little restaurant halfway around the world. Its all of these. What other form of nourishment can do all that? I think my onion soup is probably very close to old-school peasant versions. Its simply every onion I can get my hands on, cooked way, way down and deglazed with red wine. Then I add good vegetable stock, salt, pepper and simmer until it tastes right. No secrets. Its that simple. I think the best onions depend on what you want. I like the bite of reds, the subtle sweetness of shallots, the mildness of leeks and scallions and, of course, the workhorse sweet yellows. I like the balance of using all of this in the right amount. Q: Wow, you really know your onions. Any secrets to avoid crying while chopping them? A: I think having them cold works the best, but everyone has their secret. Q: You serve black rice with a couple of your entrees. Is that mostly for visual effect, or do you have another reason for cooking with it? A: Yes, it looks awesome on white plates and is a great contrast to both bright and pale plate components. It also has a great nutty flavor with a nice texture. Its a real win-win. Q: You make your own gnocchi, mozzarella and at least one pasta from scratch. My success rate with gnocchi is 50/50; half of the time they fall apart when I cook them. Can you share any secrets to success? A: The short answer is to have dry potatoes, dont be afraid to add more flour and knead, knead, knead. The long answer: I start by cooking the potatoes in salty water, then pass them through a ricer while still very hot, let them dry to room temp, then put in the cooler. The next day put your dry potatoes in a large bowl, add a pinch of white pepper, nutmeg, eggs and flour. Knead by hand until you physically cant any more, and then knead a little more. Roll by hand snakes as thick as your finger, cut to size, roll on the back of a fork, then drop in boiling salty water in small patches, then ice bath. Q: You also make your own demiglaces, which can take days. Are you still acting as your own pastry chef, too? Why do you think these things are worth the extra effort? A: Demi is the base of so many things we do. If we arent going to do it right, we are going to have some problems. I love making desserts. I almost went the pastry route in school. Desserts seem to be an afterthought at some restaurants. A little extra effort can go a long way in making a meal more special. We take a lot of pride in what we are able to do and I hope our guests can tell. Its so easy to fake it, but I believe that today, consumers are much more food-savvy and know whats real and want the real thing. I like being able to tell people exactly whats in their meal and where it came from. Q: Despite the nutritional value (and trendiness) of ancient grains, not many restaurants in Southwest Florida use quinoa in their dishes. Why do you? A: I want to be cool. Just kidding. Its delicious, for one, and has a great texture on the plate and palate. I like the tricolor quinoa better than the plain version though. Q: Do you pay much attention to food trends, or are you more interested in doing your own thing? A: Im a classic guy. Good food doesnt go out of style. If something comes along that I like, sure Ill try it. I have my style of cooking and for the most part I stick to my roots. Our guests seem to enjoy my style of cooking, and we seem to have developed a following for our wine dinners. Q: Your website mentions that your mother was a big influence on your early perceptions about food and cooking. Tell us about her restaurant on Sanibel. A: It was called Tarpon Bay Seafood Deli. It was the coolest place for a little kid. When I was growing up my mom made everything from scratch. Its amazing how we take that for granted these days. We ate lots of pasta. My mom and dad were always working, mostly days, but my older sister, Kelly, was always there for us. Q: At what point did you find your passion for cooking and decide to devote your career to it? A: I have always enjoyed cooking and I had always worked in restaurants all through school. But after finally getting my real job, I realized that I was truly meant for restaurants. Q: Do you feel like you still have things to learn about cooking? A: Of course. One of my favorite sayings is, The older I get, the less I know. I work in an ever-changing business. My way works now, but there could always be a better way. n d P p c R drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Chef: Brian McCarley>> Age: 41 >> Restraunt: The Other Side Bistro, Bonita Springs >> Hometown: Fort Myers >> Culinary education: The Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago (now known as Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts) >> Past restaurant experience: Oyster Shell, Seafood Center & Crab House, Orient Belle, Mermaid Kitchen, Good Soup, Artistic Deli, The Twisted Vine and Heritage Palms Country Club, Fort Myers; La Sardine, Le Bouchon, Enricos and The Court Yard Bistro in Chicago and Frankfort, Ill.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com FEBRUARY 2015 LUXE LIVING 3DESIGNER Q&AF or clients who care about the environment and bringing the outdoors in, hearing the name Peggy Oberlin is synonymous with such goals. This registered interior designer is well known in Naples and beyond for her artful touch in creating natural dcor that wows and feels good to have in the home. Mrs. Oberlin brings a lot to the table, including a long history of being a creative individual. She has a diverse artistic background that includes costume design and painting, and she is a photographer who loves Florida and appreciates the unique surroundings that define the area. This knowledge allows her to understand the types of styles and color schemes that work well here. Mrs. Oberlin is known for saying, I am not about fast-food design, and I stress that it takes time to create an amazing and healthy oasis where you will actually get true pleasure and even feel better by just being in your house. We asked this enterprising designer who likes doing custom work and collaborating with those clients who need more than a utilitarian approach to interior design what she has to say about green design and what makes it special. Q: You are all about green design. Please explain why this should be important to homeowners.A: Green or sustainable interior design is about living in a beautiful and healthy home environment with the best air quality that is as allergyfree as possible. Green design is about saving money on water and electricity by utilizing the right types of products that enhance our space and our wallet. I also use color and design psychology to focus on the unique design scheme that will surround my client in a cocoon of tranquility and happiness. I employ biomimicry when it is appropriate, as nature has shown us the answers to many of our design questions. Its all about the Ahhhh moment when we walk in the door.Q: What do you see as some of the challenges in green design build, and what are the rewards?A: The challenges are just getting people to understand there are no challenges to going green. There are an abundance of products and it is not expensive. That said, dont go green without seeking some professional advice. There are green home builders and designers that you would want to employ at least on a consultation basis. Consider your environment when going green. In Florida, we can employ solar power, use natural resources such as cypress, have some water-resource challenges to consider and can do some amazing xeriscapes with our native plants. Go green and go native, too.Q: Whats your favorite home design trend right now?A: I love the emphasis on building small houses and what we can do with a limited amount of square footage. It is challenging, which allows one to brainstorm and come up with some very inventive solutions. I like to repurpose objects and materials as well.Q: What trends are you glad have gone by the wayside?A: I will admit I grew very tired of the large, bulky, oppressively dark side of what we label Tuscan design in Southwest Florida. In this place of sun, sky and sea, it is the opposite of what Florida is all about.Q: If you could have a celebrity designer decorate your house, who would it be?A: Thom Filicia. He could even live in our guest room. Q: What decor would you most like to have in your home?A: I have what I like, and it is a mix of antiques, mid-century, lots of art and memory points from our travels.Q: Whats the most over-the-top luxury space youve designed?A: I once designed a house built to duplicate a 17th-century castle for someone who thought they were the reincarnation of a Scottish lord.

D4 4 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGN MAKEOVERMundane and heavy to majestic coastal:Two words come to mind when hearing the name Kira Krmm: beauty and streamlined. No one does it like Mrs. Krmm, whose Kira Krmm International Design firm has become known for crafting some breathtaking spaces. What some homeowners might not know is Mrs. Krmm is also adept at makeovers especially those that need to lighten up. She recently completed a full-scale, 7,400-square-foot, single-family, Bonita Beach-area home transformation from the structures original formal, Mediterranean style. In true Mrs. Krmm style, the space became a casual, modern Gulf Coast retreat. The residence was dated and in need of a fresh, relaxed style for a Canadian familys new vacation beach home, and originally, the home was outfitted in heavy, formal dcor and traditional finishes not ideal for a residence that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico, says Mrs. Krmm, who wanted the space to speak to its serene natural environment on par with the coastal locale. Working closely with the homeowners and architect, we stripped the home to its studs and started fresh, together creating a look that is in harmony with both its coastal environment and the clients expectations. Being a gulf-front beach house, the homeowners wanted an interior that was both casual and relaxed. But 12-foot ceilings made that challenging. We had to make the rooms inviting and functional while working with the unusual grand scale, and we did this by emphasizing comfort and livability with the furnishings and flooring, Mrs. Krmm says. We selected prewashed cotton and linen fabrics on deep, plush, upholstered furniture, and used a weathered-wood flooring to anchor the interior and add warmth throughout. Mrs. Krmms favorite aspect of the makeover was working with the clients, whom she calls decisive and gracious, involved throughout the design process. The synergy shows as a result or their involvement, and the dcor really reflects the homeowners distinct tastes and upbeat character, she says. They desired an interior that was cozy, sophisticated and cheerful, incorporating bold modern patterns and vibrant dashes of color throughout. In the kitchen and bar area, Mrs. Krmm replaced traditional cherry cabinetry and granite countertops with mitered-edged, white-marble slab, sleek white cabinetry with chrome hardware and stainless-steel appliances. The main accent wall cabinetry was replaced with open display shelving and a couture chevron backsplash. We added the latest in lighting and fans throughout, with state-of-the-art LED light fixtures and modern ceiling fans chosen in an all-white white finish so that they would disappear into the ceiling, Mrs. Krmm says. The old, angled-style ceiling trays were also altered by squaring them off for a more modern, sleek look. Getting makeover tips from Mrs. Krmm is like asking a top chef for secret recipes. They are both valuable and helpful. Here are her top tips for a fool-proof makeover: Start simple and invest in quality over quantity. An experienced interior designer with vision will help guide you through the many creative decisions and manage the design process so that it is enjoyable and rewarding. Avoid trends and draw inspiration from your own unique lifestyle. Our client had a favorite color a beautiful aqua blue that she wanted to incorporate in accents and accessories. As a talented chef who enjoys lots of time in the kitchen, she fell in love with a playfully bold, blue-and-white patterned wall covering for her pantry that added personality to one of her favorite spaces. Find a unique focal point or conversation piece to design around. Our client selected a 10-foot, live-edge walnut dining table as a striking central feature in the spacious open floor plan of the main living area. To complete our clients vision, we designed a unique and playful chandelier with a mix of industrial-style clear glass pendants hanging at various lengths above the table. Add a fun, bold color to an accent wall. For added interest and depth, we painted the family room accent wall in a soothing rain-washed blue, which tied in with the aqua accessories and panoramic gulf view.

D12 COVER STORYTeamwork is the most important aspect in building a luxury Naples homeBuilding a dream house seems like, well, a dream come true. Buy a lot, build a home. Live happily ever after. But in swanky Naples where everything can seem overpriced and the permitting process alone can resemble more of a nightmare than a dream building a luxury home can be anything but fun. Luxury Lesson No. 1 in building in Naples: Hire who you know, or at the very least a contractor who has worked with a colleague or friend with amazing references. Why is this so important? Because navigating the Naples building path is tricky, and it pays to have someone you trust on your side, as Mr. and Mrs. Doug Traina did. When the Traina family decided to relocate to Naples from their massive, 23,000-squarefoot riverfront home in Fort Myers, they knew it wouldnt be easy. They wanted waterfront with soaring gulf views. They wanted a custom home on a vacant lot with lots of room. They also wanted to stick with the style they love. With superb taste and an uncompromising commitment to quality, the Trainas knew what they wanted practically down to the doorknocker. My advice for people building a luxury home is pick your contractors carefully, because this is an incredibly high-income area so there is the possibility a homeowner can be taken advantage of despite that there are lots of good people here, Mr. Traina says. Pick a good contractor who makes a fair profit, and that will help you avoid problems.Partners Perfection in BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly Correspondent Residential designer Steve Handley, LHS President Norman Bloxham and LHS Project Manager Todd Apple on site at the 27,000-square-foot home they are building for a client on Gulfshore Boulevard. TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY 12 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY
Rather than gamble with a contractor they didnt know, the couple selected a contractor they had worked with before. Mr. Traina felt Luxury Home Solutions would deliver what they want in their lifelong dream home, yet be able to advise on important decisions. Norm and Todd put everything they have into a project, says Mr. Traina, referring to LHS President Norman R. Bloxham and LHS Project Manager Todd Apple. The word everything just about covers it. Building a 27,442-square-foot custom home such as this is not for the faint of heart. The Traina home is one of a kind their 60,372-square-foot waterfront lot is more like a luxury compound. This is how to build luxury: three stories, seven bedroom suites, seven full and 3 1/2 bathrooms, studies for both husband and wife, a theater and game room, massage and exercise rooms, wet bars, and lets not forget the swim-up bar in the vanishing-edge pool. A butlers kitchen has become somewhat customary in Naples luxury homes, along with the requisite outdoor kitchen. The home will have two elevators and a 12-car garage. All of this grandeur requires a lot of land, which brings us to Luxury Home Lesson No. 2: Know your real-estate market. It might not be as easy as you think to get what you want in Naples. The Trainas lot on Gulf Shore Boulevard was the result of an exhaustive hunt. One-third of whats available in Naples is what might be considered estate lots, and the really big ones are farther south, Mr. Traina says. But I was focused on having a large ocean view, and while Port Royal was beautiful, its mainly canals. With only 139 beach homes in Naples, plus dealing with condos, ther are far fewer large lots.Entrance to paradiseThe entryway is spectacular the host of stunning waterfalls and pools flanking either side of the driveway welcomes the homeowners to the point that they may never want to leave again. The landscape architect, Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, designed an exquisite entry gate, a water feature with a flowing river, pond and bridge, says Mr. Bloxham of the vegetation and aquatic features that draw the eye while approaching the porte-cochre. The waterfall and elliptical two-story glass entry set the tone, and then when you enter the home, there are two-story foyers with circular staircases mirrored on the right and left sides, with raised, wood-paneled walls behind. With the raised living room directly ahead, the eye will instantly follow the rise of a massive, two-story fireplace and architectural window wall to the rear this is the gulf view the Trainas cant wait to see every day. The lanai is an extension of the living area with features that include an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, fire pit, hot tub, swimming pool with swim-up bar and an infinity edge, says Mr. Bloxham, who credits LHS General Manager Michelle Holt for running his company so he can be on the job site himself supervising his team. Luxury Lesson No. 3 is to work with team members who are happy for you and who will work hard to make your dream house happen. Mr. Bloxham and his team find their greatest rewards in the faces of their clients when they first see their new homes. In meetings with the Trainas, the excitement over the progress of the home was infectious. Steve Handley of Handleys Residential Design is the hand behind bringing the Trainas vision for the home to life on paper for the contractor to follow. He has worked with LHS for years, and says Mr. Traina is a dream client because he is a wannabe architect. I come up with the design and drawings and engineers come up with plans to show the structure to the Trainas, but they have known what they wanted from the very beginning. We are just orchestrating the project, Mr. Handley says. Its our job to sit down with the customer and understand what their needs are because everyone has different goals, and for the Trainas, it was to achieve that custom West Indies style. When Mr. Bloxham learned the Trainas did not want a heavy Mediterranean design or something like ornate gingerbread, he paired the homeowners with Mr. Handley and the rest is Gulfshore Boulevard history Messrs. Bloxham, Handley and Apple each understood that the Trainas beach views were the most important aspect of the property. The old saying they moved heaven and earth is apropos here the mound of dirt the LHS team had to move is taller and wider than many office buildings. Which brings us to Luxury Lesson No. 4: Make sure your contractor is up for what can seem like an insurmountable challenge. The whole thing about this house is the view, and that means whatever it takes. When it is done, I want it to be exactly what Doug envisioned, says Mr. Bloxham, who writes about home building on his blog, Norms Corner, on the LHS website. Thats also whats special about Steve he came out on to the lot and created the windows and railings so none of it obstructs the view. Piling it on at the beachCreating a view such as this is no easy feat because building on the beach carries with it trials and tribulations like in no other construction process. To construct the Traina house, a dizzying number of pilings have to support the house, which extends dozens of feet into the ground below sea level. Whats amazing is they dug up the footprint of the house and put pumps in there to keep the water out and then put the dirt back, says Mr. Traina, who is a down-toearth success story. He never fails to marvel at the homebuilding process and doesnt take his success for granted. There have been many headaches along the way in dealing with these challenges, but the end goal is a shared one between the homeowners and contracting team. Says Mr. Traina, The first thing were going to do when we move in is have a big party and invite all the vendors and contractors and friends. Note that among the most important lessons in things to know when building a luxury home in Naples that we didnt mention is having the right materials, or the right decorator, or even choosing the right style of home. Perhaps the most important lesson of all is Luxury Lesson No. 5: teamwork. Having the right team starts with the contractor. When Mr. Bloxham puts a team together for his clients, he includes people who are top experts in their respective fields. They include structural engineers and designers and a host of other folks who take the project and run with it. In the case of the Traina house, just readying the land was a massive undertaking. Heres how it worked for the Traina home: Luxury Home Solutions is the general contractor. The custom estate was designed by Handleys Residential Design, plus American Engineering, which provided the structural support, along with Stafford Engineering and Architectural Land Design by Christian Andrea. Right now, the Traina home looks more like a concrete maze than homestead. Construction isnt slated to be complete until sometime in 2016. But that timeline is actually faster than the typical three or more years it can take to build a luxury home in Naples. Building a luxury home is like solving a problem or a puzzle, and when its all done and the owner walks into the door and smiles, we have had very many customers who tear up, Mr. Bloxham says. He expects nothing less from the Trainas.

14 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSHOP TALKWhen Dawn Harmon, interior designer/principal of Little Palm Design Group, decided to open her shop, she picked a place close to her home in North Naples and created a friendly space that gives visitors lots of inspiration to draw from. Color and coastal elements leap into view from the entrance, leaving all but your imagination standing in the way. Even for thsoe on a budget, there is a lot to choose from. Large to small spaces can benefit from an array of accents to transform from eyesore to eye candy. Mrs. Harmon attends the High Point Furniture Market twice a year to stay abreast of trends and brings those resources back to Naples. The Little Palm Design Group library and custom drapery workroom is a must-do destination for anyone looking for home fabrics. This relaxed room is where Mrs. Harmons clients and even other designers can review reference material. Catalogs and samples of finishes, fabrics and wallpapers fill the room that invites customers to sit quietly and without pressure to make a choice. There is so much to this not-so-little shop, and Mrs. Harmon draws inspiration from different lifestyles to ensure a wide variety of choices for customers in her showroom. From contemporary interpretations of the classics, to the local coastal flavor and charm of Naples, the showroom offers a cozy, intimate and friendly space where we enjoy showcasing some local artists work as well as unique items from around the world, says the native Floridian who appreciates and understands the design elements of the region.Big things come in small packages at Little Palm Design Group By KELLY MERRITT Photos by TIM GIBBONS Florida Weekly CorrespondentDawn Harmon in the design resource library of her North Naples studio/showroom.
D15 FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com FEBRUARY 2015 LUXE LIVING 15SHOP TALKAs much as there is to see at Little Palm Design Group, there is no such thing as clutter in this space. Sure there is a lot to choose from, but Mrs. Harmons design philosophy that one great thing is more meaningful than lots of little mismatched items is echoed in her store. And customers return often for Mrs. Harmons tips for how to keep things simple yet at the same time striking around their homes. Simplicity matched with an interesting piece can create impact, she says. And besides the idea of traditional art, there are other mediums that add dimension, texture and color. Some are sculptural, she says. Group similar items together, she advises, and if hanging more than one piece of art, use the same sizes and frames to organize and unify. Because of the modest size of the store, she fills it with items that work well together. If too many genres are put together, the store does not feel cohesive. I buy what I like and what I think my clients will like, which makes it easier to place these items in projects. Mrs. Harmon says she is enjoying the more contemporary trend, which is what she grew up with. That attitude is why she encourages customers to get inspired, even if it means from other resources. That mantra had paid off. Her store is the recipient of a Best of HOUZZ 2015 award.

16 LUXE LIVING FEBRAURY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSHOP TALK I tell everyone to look at the website HOUZZ because it is a great way for people to visualize, she says. Being able to make folders for your ideas is a great way to catalog and share. If you dont want to keep your design inspirations and dreams electronically, she suggests tearing photos of rooms and items you like from magazines and keeping them in an old-fashioned folder. Once you start doing this, you will see a pattern and it will help you express and identify your decorating style, she promises. As silly as it sounds, she adds, be sure to write what you like about a picture on the page so you will remember what you liked. Sometimes, Mrs. Harmon is asked to fix problems. She says the biggest mistake she sees people make involves buying something furniture, art or an accessory they like without regard for the whole picture. Keeping a consistency of direction is really important. I often equate putting a room together to putting an outfit together. I might love a paisley shirt, but it probably wont look great with a plaid skirt.

D22 www.FloridaWeekly.com FEBRUARY 2015 LUXE LIVING 22MUST READUndecorateAnyone who loves design would be hard-pressed to not know about Christiane Lemieux. The founder and creative director of DwellStudio is a visionary designer who can use textiles like nobody else. Barnes & Noble reviews heralded Undecorate, saying it delivers in a quintessentially American way, championing a fresh, unconventional approach to creating a beautiful and comfortable home. Fresh and unconventional, for sure Mrs. Lemieux is so bold to suggest we all undecorate, which frees us from suffocating, impersonal design concepts that can make us feel boxed in. The best part of Undecorate is the freedom it encourages us to feel when making dcor choices. The profiles in Undecorate of almost two dozen homes throughout the United States is a surprising revelation of why something you may think isnt quite right is really just right and challenges readers to see the beauty in everyday items they might otherwise take for granted. From an English manor in Hollywood to a to-die-for Airstream trailer to a log house in Nashville, with photos by the intrepid Melanie Acevedo, Undecorate is a yummy account of how to simply be ourselves in our homes and to love where we live, regardless of where that is.

6 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY season2015guideNAPLES ARTS What you really shouldnt miss this seasonHere we are, smack in the height of season. With so many venues vying for your time and money, how do you decide to spend both wisely? Follow your heart and your own interests, but be adventurous, too. Try something new. Take a risk. Here are some highlights you should consider. Peter and the Starcatcher plays one night at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center in Sarasota (Feb. 12). Whimsical and fun, this Tony Awardwinning Broadway play tells the backstory of Peter Pan. The Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards winner for Favorite Play, this is the first time its playing in our area. Red, a two-man play about the late painter Mark Rothko, is playing at the Sugden Community Theatres Tobye Studio through Feb. 28. Mark Vanagas, whos been in many other Naples Players productions, (most notably as the emcee in Cabaret) portrays the Abstract Expressionist painter. Wed go see anything in which Mr. Vanagas acts. The Naples Players are also staging Oklahoma! (March 4April 4), Rodgers and Hammersteins first collaboration. This is an opportunity to hear songs such as Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin, People Will Say Were In Love, Surrey With the Fringe On Top and of course, Oklahoma! a song that stays stuck in your head. Were also looking forward to the Players summer musical, yet to be announced. In previous years theyve put on shows such as nd Street and Thoroughly Modern Millie. The Players generally pull out all the stops with their musicals, and they sell out quickly. The Blue Man Group, that trio of cobalt-blue bald men, comes to the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers from Feb. 24March 1. The groups shows are a mixture of high and low humor, mixed with music and audience participation. Just sheer fun. A national tour of Chicago: The Musical plays at ArtisNaples from Feb. 24 March 1. We just cant get enough of those Kander and Ebb tunes: All That Jazz, We Both Reached for the Gun, When Youre Good to Mama, Mr. Cellophane and Razzle Dazzle. Female serial killers, lying lawyers and a sensationalist press what more could you ask for? If youre in a more romantic frame of mind, you might want to check out Fascinatin Gershwin at Florida Repertory Theatres ArtStage Studio (through March 22). Its so popular, the run has already been extended. A quintet of performers transport you back to the 1930s, performing George and Ira Gershwin classics such as Summertime, The Man I Love, They Cant Take That Away From Me! Ive Got Rhythm and Embraceable You. At Sarasotas Asolo Repertory Theatre, you can see the precursor to Hello, Dolly!: Thorton Wilders sweet and charming play, The Matchmaker (through April 11). Wall Street Journal theater critic Terry Teachout saw this production recently and raved about it. And if youve seen the dark comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, you may be interested in seeing Chekhovs The Cherry Orchard (through April 26), which pokes fun at the former, also at the Asolo. The Liar, playing at Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples (April 4-26), should be a fun romp. Its the tale of a man who cannot tell the truth and his servant who cannot lie. The Florida Repertory Theatres closing out its season with two Southern plays: one a classic, one a world premiere. Dividing the Estate, by the great Horton Foote, runs March 17-April 8. No one captures family dynamics the way Mr. Foote does. Theyll then stage Split in Three (April 21-May 10), which was a finalist in their inaugural PlayLab Festival last year and presented as a reading. It deals with two white sisters who are living in the last segregated county in Mississippi during the fight for Civil Rights. Also presenting a production of a new play from its annual New Play contest, Theatre Conspiracy presents A Position of Relative Importance (May 1-17) about a man who has a masters degree in philosophy from New York University, and needs to find a job. Also, keep an eye out for the annual summer fundraiser in which the troupe presents half-hour readings of this years three new play finalists. (Date to be announced.) Gulfshore Playhouse holds an annual New Works Festival in late summer, dates to be announced. It is now in its third year. And Florida Rep will hold its second annual PlayLab Festival, at a date to be announced. These are great opportunities to see readings of new plays at very low cost, and, judging by previous years, are not to be missed. Jazz singer and pianist Diana Krall plays the Van Wezel on April 16 and the Mann on April 17, and jazz trumpeter Chris Botti plays the Van Wezel on April 17 and ArtisNaples on April 29. The annual Percussion Summit, which presents a mixture of commercial and avant-garde music on a variety of percussion instruments, takes place May 9 at ArtisNaples. The event, which used to open each season in September, is now slated for spring. And if you like sophisticated, cuttingedge art, you should check out The Ringlings New Stages 2015: Re:Imagined, which presents a variety of performers, including avant-garde quartet ETHEL performing Documerica to a video of photos from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Hot Club of San Francisco performing while screening pioneering stop-action animation. The performances run on various Fridays and Saturdays though March. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The venuesFor more information or for tickets, heres how to contact the venues mentioned: >> ArtisNaples 5833 Pelican Bay, Naples (800) 597-1900 or www.artisnaples.org >> Asolo Repertory Theatre 5555 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota (941) 351-9010 or (800) 361-8388 or www. asolorep.org >> Barbara B.
