C1 SEE CENTRAL, A22 BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.com Naples City Council and local business owners are battling it out over proposed changes to Central Avenue in downtown that businesses claim will exacerbate traffic problems and block access to many of their storefronts. At the April 1 council meeting, residents and businesses were treated to a history of Central Avenues redevelopment, which has been on the books since the turn of the century and has suffered several setbacks and postponements. Council recently scrapped a plan that was completed and approved in 2005 in favor of a new proposal that incorporates lane reductions, medians, bike paths and roundabouts. This is the same area where council already has approved new residential developments that will add more than 500 units. Additionally, Neighborhood Health Clinic is expanding onto Central Avenue, and a 189-room resort is slated for nearby Fifth Avenue South near River Point Drive. The business community commissioned an independent traffic study for Central Avenue that came up with numbers very different from those reported in the citys study. The city found that an average of 620 cars used the road during its peak hour in 2014, whereas the business study showed 805 cars traversing the avenue Businesses, city officials part ways over Central Avenue N E V E RF O R G ET Vo l.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARY Why I wont be available this summer Its getting warm again, which means summer is only about three weeks away. Ive heard a lot of Northerners talk about the summer heat where they come from, as if Floridas aint nothin to write home about. Chicago, Cincinnati, St. Louis or Kansas City, in the Midwest thats where its really hot. New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, or Washington, D.C. in the Northeast. This isnt bad, they say, implying theyll meet the real thing when they get back home. Down here, the heat aint nothin but a hound dog that makes you talk funny. It bleeds each morning out of the sawgrass and into the palmetto scrub. Then it drifts like mustard gas into the slash pines and live oaks before stretching effortlessly though the silent cypress sloughs, finally filling the mangrove swamps of your mind, or whats left of your mind by 3 p.m. on any hot summer afternoon. No big deal. They have a right to that talk, I figure. Theirs are all river towns where water and low altitude meet latitudes that arent high enough to actually provide oxygen when you walk outside. Instead, you breath a sponge and walk through the world sounding like Darth Vader. Even voices drip and grow thicker in those places, and colors melt like wax. So do people. In Kansas City, for example, humans who begin the day outside made of 60 percent water, as nature intended, end it flat on their backs inside, after sweating out seeming gallons of their liquid body masses. Which makes them either something less than human, or something more dead than alive. And its not just human beings, its also politicians. Ive heard some politicians talk about the heat like they really understand it, and I dont doubt them. If you cant stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen, Harry Truman famously said. He knew what he was talking about, too, since he came from Kansas City. And after being diagnosed with exhaustion by his doctor, he took the first of a number of warm vacations at the Little White House in Key West, in 1946. He wasnt the only one. President William Howard Taft stayed there in 1911. Later, Thomas Edison moved in for six months during World War I, perfecting weapons, according to the historians (probably with a fishing rod in his hands). After Truman, both Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy made use of the place, too, mostly because it was hot. The more modest politicians Ive known seem to do ok with the heat whether in hot kitchens or in Florida. Even when Ive turned it up on them. For the most part they remain cordial and cool. Either that, or they just bounce, pop and vanish like water droplets off a hot griddle. Thats when I get hot, too. Thats because they usually have middlepersons who do the heat-taking and vanishing for them, supported in air-conditioned comfort with good retirement benefits, by taxpayers. Youre sweating it out as a reporter, and your job is to ask why, what or how much of the public feed bag politicians intend to share with their pals those are usually the people who want to build something big on a preserve, or pave miles of something solid through a wetland, or arm somebody in the name of the Second Amendment with rocket launchers and machine guns so NRA lobbyists will buy them a bottle of Macallans 1946 single-malt whiskey made with peated malt (not coal) and presented in a LaliqueCire Perdue decanter, for $460,000, which was the going price in 2010 or something similar. You call up, youre poised to put down their deeds in print for hundreds of thousands or millions of curious readers and voters, and you lay it out to the person who answers the phone. Hi, Im Muckraker Magee. May I speak to the (president, governor, senator, representative, mayor, commissioner, council member) please? Silently, they check the list of names on their iPhones just beneath the skull-andcrossbones icon. When they locate yours at the top, they always reply the same way: Im sorry, you Sonofa excuse me, I have a cough today Im sorry, Mr. Williams, but the (Right Hand of God) is traveling out of state, out of country and out of the solar system and wont be back until 2045. You pause ominously, because thats your job. You lower your voice a notch, which always increases the heat. And then you say, Thats not good enough. God invented cell phones so you could give (the Right Hand of God) my number, and he/she could call and talk to me from wherever, asap. They pause, no doubt to turn up the air conditioning. What theyre doing in the meantime on the other end of the telephone, God only knows driving a penknife into your portrait, sticking out their tongues at the receiver or lifting their middle fingers in derisive rage are all good bets. Then they speak. I dont know what else to tell you, Mr. Williams. But first you have to send a written communication to our Director of Media Relations. You can tell from the tone of their voice that having any media relations whatsoever, in their mind, is roughly akin to having relations with a hippopotamus or a crocodile or some other rank equatorial beast in the grass on the banks of the Nile River with a platoon of grinning ISIS recruits squatting nearby, dreaming of paradise. But unfortunately, they add, he is out of town until the year 2029. And no one else is available. Which is why I may not be available this summer, either. I plan to be at Trumans Little White House starting in about three weeks, drinking Macallans or something like it PBR, or Old Milwaukee or a Schlitz or anything else I can get the NRA or some other lobbying outfit to buy me. Ill be cool as a cucumber in the heat there. d h o e s l e roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Indianas sin is that its Legislature passed and Gov. Mike Pence signed into law a Religious Freedom Restoration Act, setting out a legal standard for cases involving a clash between a persons exercise of religion and the states laws. To listen to the critics, youd think the law was drafted by a joint committee of attorneys from the Ku Klux Klan and the Westboro Baptist Church. The enlightened are stumbling over themselves in their rush to boycott Indiana. Seattle and San Francisco are banning official travel, and Connecticut is following suit. The anti-Indiana backlash is a perfect storm of hysteria and legal ignorance, supercharged by the particularly censorious self-righteousness of the left. All the Indiana law says is that the state cant substantially burden a persons exercise of religion, unless there is a compelling governmental interest at stake and it is pursued by the leastrestrictive means. The law doesnt mandate any particular outc ome; it simply provides a test for the courts in those rare instances when a persons exercise of religion clashes with a law. Nineteen other states have similar protections, and they are all modeled on a federal version of the law that passed Congress with near unanimity in 1993 (Indianas law is arguably a little more robust than the federal version, since it applies to private suits). If these Religious Freedom Restoration Acts were the enablers of discrimination they are portrayed as, much of the country would already have sunk into a dystopian pit of hatred. The religious-freedom laws once were associated with minorities that progressives could embrace or tolerate Native Americans who smoke peyote as part of religious ceremonies, Amish who drive their buggies on the roads, and the like. That was fine. It is the specter of Christian small-business people say, a baker or a florist using the laws to protect themselves from punishment for opting out of gaywedding ceremonies that drives progressives mad. Why? The country has an enormous wedding industry not known for its hostility to gays. The burgeoning institution of gay marriage will surely survive the occasional florist who doesnt want to provide flowers for a same-sex wedding for religious reasons As a practical matter, such a dissenting florist doesnt make a difference; the affected couple might be offended, but can take its business elsewhere. But for the left, its the principle of the thing. For all its talk of diversity, it demands unanimity on this question individual conscience be damned. So it isnt bothered when religious wedding vendors are sued or harassed under anti-discrimination laws for their nonparticipation in ceremonies they morally oppose. Its not clear that Religious Freedom Restoration Acts will shield these kind of business people (they havent, to this point). It might be that more specific exemptions are necessary. But the mere possibility that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act might protect a baker opposed to gay marriage is enough to create a furious, unhinged reaction. Yes, there is intolerance afoot in the debate over Indiana, but its not on the part of Indianans. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION a r d p r o rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Hate doesnt payThe date was Aug. 7, 1930. The place: Marion, Ind. Three young AfricanAmerican men were lynched. The horror of the crime was captured by a local photographer. The image of two hanging, bloodied bodies is among the most iconic in the grim archive of documented lynchings in America. Most associate lynching with the Deep South, with the vestiges of slavery and the rise of Jim Crow. But this was in the North. Marion is in northern Indiana, halfway between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, and about 150 miles from Chicago. But intolerance knows no borders. In the photo, beneath the towering maple tree in Marions Courthouse Square, stands the white mob who lynched the men. Some are smiling for the camera. One man points at the hanging corpse of Abram Abe Smith, hanging next to Thomas Shipp. The third victim actually survived. James Cameron was the youngest of the three, and was beaten and dragged to the base of the tree, beneath his dead friends, and had a noose put around his neck. He was, for some reason, not killed. He went on to found four local NAACP chapters, as well as Americas Black Holocaust Museum. He would also serve as Indianas director of civil liberties. Indiana certainly doesnt want to be remembered for this terrible crime, or for being a bastion of hatred. So why did Indiana Gov. Mike Pence legalize a new wave of intolerance by signing into law Indianas controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act? The laws supporters claim it protects religious freedom. Opponents call it a thinly veiled attack on the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The law allows individuals and businesses to refuse service to LGBT people, solely based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. It has provoked a national backlash, with prominent people, large corporations and city and state governments condemning or boycotting Indiana. Charles Barkley, former NBA basketball star and sports commentator, issued a statement reading, As long as anti-gay legislation exists in any state, I strongly believe big events such as the Final Four and Super Bowl should not be held in those states cities. Indianapolis hosted the Final Four championship basketball games April 4-6. The University of Connecticuts mens basketball coach, Kevin Ollie, said he would not attend the games, respecting Gov. Dannel Malloys travel ban forbidding state employees from going to Indiana with public funds. Pat Haden, former NFL quarterback and current athletic director at the University of Southern California, announced he would boycott a college football meeting held in Indianapolis at the same time as the Final Four by tweeting: I am the proud father of a gay son. In his honor, I will not be attending the CFP committee meeting in Indy this week. #EmbraceDiversity. If the NCAA had pulled the games to another state, it would be an economic disaster for Indiana, and a reputation-killer for Republican Gov. Pence. Speaking of sons, Gov. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, where the Legislature followed Indianas by passing a similar RFRA law this week, says he will not sign the bill into law. He cited his own son signing a petition against the law. The NCAA itself has expressed deep concern about Indianas law. But its not just basketball. Even the car-racing organization NASCAR announced it was disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana. We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport. New York and Washington have joined Connecticut in banning statefunded travel to Indiana, as have New York City, Denver, Seattle and San Francisco. Corporations from Nike to Apple to Marriott have denounced the law. Angies List, the popular home-service referral website, halted a $40 million headquarters expansion in Indianapolis. Under enormous pressure, after first refusing, Pence has asked the Legislature to fix the bill, to clarify that the language in the law does not allow discrimination based on sexual orientation. Many opponents say they will settle on nothing less than a total repeal. As one protesters sign read, You cant clarify hate. The image of that 1930 lynching in Marion inspired the Billie Holiday song Strange Fruit. Bob Dylan opened his 1965 hit Desolation Row with words inspired by it: Theyre selling postcards of the hanging. Lynching survivor James Cameron is quoted on the Americas Black Holocaust Museum website, Hatred is a poison, that corrupts the hater from within. People everywhere, inside and outside Indiana, are proving that organized action is the antidote. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Even when an individual has access, however, finding a specialist in Haiti who has the right medical tools and supplies to perform a procedure can be near impossible. Thats where Hope for Haiti comes in. For the past 25 years, the Naplesbased charitable organization has been committed to improving the quality of life for the Haitian people, particularly children, through education, nutrition and health care. By building long-term partnerships, Hope for Haiti connects, heals and empowers communities on the path toward sustainability. Orthopedic surgeon Philip Regala first traveled to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake as part of a Rotary Club of Naples effort to deliver aid to victims. Along with other volunteer medical professionals, Dr. Regala was taken to a small hospital in the city of Pignon to perform surgeries and administer other treatments. The hospital ran on a generator during the day, and the power was shut off at night. That was eye opening, he recalls. Since then, Dr. Regala has returned to Haiti several times and has helped establish a permanent rotation in which American surgeons are volunteering their time and expertise to train Haitian orthopedic residents so they can better care for their countrymen. On his fourth trip last November, Dr. Regala was accompanied by six volunteers from Naples, an orthopedic surgeon from Seattle and two anesthesiologists from South Bend, Ind. One of their patients was a Hope for Haiti staff member who had suffered a broken arm in a car accident four months previously. Even though the man had had surgery soon after the accident, the bone was not healing properly because his doctors had not had the proper tools to set it. Dr. Regalas team was able to rework the previous procedure and insert two metal plates to straighten out the arm. He should heal with near normal function, he says about the patient. In all, the team operated on 15 patients and treated another 15-20 people during their stay in November. Dr. Regala grew up in the one-stoplight town of Hartford, Wis., where his physician father was often paid for his services in corn or brandy. From him, the Naples doctor learned the importance of caring for everyone, irrespective of their situation or station in life. Philip attended and graduated from the University of Wisconsin and then went on to the Medical College of Wisconsin. He moved to Florida to do his orthopedic residency at the University of Miami, planning all along to go back to his home state to practice medicine. A few winters of living in South Florida, however, changed that perspective. His family has called Naples home since 1997.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 in freight cars without water, air or toilets, the gnawing hunger in their bellies from lack of food, the stench of rotting and burning corpses or the sunless skies filled with thick, dark gray coils of smoke from the incinerators used to burn bodies at the concentration death camps. But most of all, they cant forget the faces of loved ones who perished and went up in smoke. They cant forget. But they live on. They have worked hard to rebuild whole lives, families and communities. Over the past 70 years, survivors of the Nazi Holocaust that snuffed out the lives of 12 million people six million Jews struggle to live fruitful and happy lives while tethered to a past they can never forget. In order to keep the Holocaust victims and survivors alive in the nations hearts and minds, the United States Congress established Days of Remembrance every spring. This week commemorates the Holocaust. The internationally recognized date for Holocaust Remembrance Day corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan on the Hebrew calendar. It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called Yom Hashoah. This year its on Thursday, April 16. For the most part, Yom Hashoah has been observed with candle lighting, speakers, poems, prayers and singing. Often, six candles are lit to represent the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust. During this time, Holocaust survivors speak about their experiences or share in the readings. Some ceremonies have people read from the Book of Names for certain lengths of time in an effort to remember those who died and to give an understanding of the enormous number of victims. Sometimes these ceremonies are held in a cemetery or near a Holocaust memorial. In Israel, the Knesset made Yom Hashoah a national public holiday in 1959 and in 1961 a law was passed that closed all public entertainment on Yom Hashoah. At 10 a.m., a siren is sounded where people stop what they are doing, pull over in their cars, and stand in remembrance. Throughout Florida, synagogues and Jewish service organizations will hold Holocaust remembrance events available for the public to attend. To remember is all that the world and the human race has left of the millions dead and gone. Florida Weekly scoured South Florida to speak with many Holocaust survivors willing to share their stories and lives with us. The words to these stories did not come easily or without pain. For most of these survivors, sharing their stories and speaking is an act of will and courage and a testament to their belief that only through education and awareness will another Holocaust be prevented. Steen Metz Age: 79 Place of birth: Odense, Denmark Holocaust experience: Family arrested and deported to Theresienstadt Concentration Camp in Czechoslovakia in 1943. Father Axel Metz died within six months of starvation and hard labor. Family: Married to Eileen, father of two daughters and a grandfather Today: Mr. Metz is a seasonal resident on Sanibel and speaks to civic and school groups throughout the year about his experiences during the Holocaust. He encourages students to be ambassadors of his story and the message to never forget. To learn more: Read Mr. Metzs self-published book A Danish Boy in Theresienstadt or visit steenmetzneverforget.com. They pounded on the door, said Steen Metz. My father answered. I really had no idea what was happening. The Nazis had come in the fall of 1943 to round up Mr. Metz and his parents and deport them and other Danish Jews to a concentration camp. Inside his cozy condo on Sanibel Island one can hear the lulling rush of the bay against the shore. Its calming, serene. Another look inside Mr. Metzs home and an entertainment center filled with family pictures grabs the eye. Images of smiling children and happy couples arm in arm line the shelves. But one picture, a black and white photo of a smiling man with wire-rimmed glasses, begs a closer look. Thats my father, Mr. Metz said. A stormy, and faraway gaze stirs in his eyes. I was only 8 years old when my parents and I were arrested, he said. It was very early in the morning on Oct. 2, 1943. The Metz family and about 60 other Jews were taken by open wagon to a school yard where they were assembled to be deported to Theresienstadt Concentration Camp in Czechoslovakia. I really had no idea what was happening, he said. Mr. Metz said he knew that Denmark had been occupied since 1940. But he didnt understand that his being Jewish had anything to do with their arrest and deportation. I didnt realize I was Jewish, he said. I was not brought up in the Jewish faith. It was a complete shock. Was it a crime to be Jewish? Once they were arrested, Mr. Metz said he and his family had a half hour to get ready to leave. They were to take money and jewelry. At the time the young Mr. Metz said he convinced his father that it would be a good idea to take their valuables. But later they would be forced to give all of their valuables and belongings to the Nazis. The process of leaving Denmark and being transported to Theresienstadt Concentration Camp in Czechoslovakia was difficult. They were shouting and they were screaming, Mr. Metz said, I was frightened. I didnt know what was going on. Then eventually we were herded in a cattle car. We were there for three days and three nights. They didnt feed us. We didnt get any liquid. It was awful and tense. There were no windows. It was dark. We were cramped. Mr. Metz and the three other children in the cattle car got down on the floor while the adults stood crowding together. They were given a brief chance to step out of the cattle car for a stop and find some water. The prisoners shared food that they had brought from their homes. Once they arrived at the concentration camp, Mr. Metz saw his world disappear behind metal gates and bleak grounds. We had to walk for a little over a mile to the camp. We had to empty pockets, suitcases and ladies purses. We felt intimidated. At the camp the separating of families and individuals began. Mr. Metz stayed with his mother because of his young age and his father was directed to the mens barracks. The experience still makes him shudder. I was 8 years old and very frightened, he said. They were screaming and shouting at us. They never missed a chance to dehumanize us, intimidate us and physically abuse us, Mr. Metz said. His mother was attacked emotionally and his father beaten. His father was an attorney of small physical stature. He was used to litigating in the courthouse not harsh manual labor, Mr. Metz said. He was whipped because he wasnt producing what he should be. They tore off his coat. He lost about half his body weight. It was more than he could handle. His father was transferred to the infirmary where he died after less than six months in the camp. The 40-year-old died of starvation but camp officials wrote pneumonia on his death certificate as to not raise suspicion that prisoners were not being treated well, said Mr. Metz. His mother Amgna was tormented by the Nazis for refusing to acknowledge that her husband died of anything other than starvation. After Mr. Metzs fathers death, fear engulfed the remaining family of two. The worst thing was the uncertainty, especially after my father died, Mr. Metz said. Were we going to survive? Would we eat? I was hungry all the time. But after several months, Mr. Metz, his mother and the other inmates began to receive parcels of food, vitamins and clothing. In Denmark, the Danes supported their Jewish population so sending packages and support was permitted. It was a very unique situation, Mr. Metz said. But still the Nazis often pilfered the prisoners packages. One time his mother opened a package only to find three bricks inside.NEVER FORGETFrom page 1 N E V E RF O R G ET N E V E R F O R G ET COURTESY PHOTOSteen Metz considers a photo of his father. o f Na me s fo r ce rt ai n n e ff ort to remember d to give an un d e ro rmous number m es these cerin a cemetery s t memoria l In m a d e Yom Hasubl ic h o l i d ay in l aw was p asse d c entertainment A t 10 a.m. a siren e op l e stop w h at ll over in t h eir n remem b rance. d a, synagogues organizations u st reme mi lable f or s a ll h e i t h Family : Married to Eileen f ather o f two dau g hters and a g rand f athe r didnt understand had an yt hi ng to d d eportation I didnt he said.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 NEWS A9 Inside the camp, Mr. Metz busied himself with work even though he did not have to work because of his age. He became a messenger, carrying documents to and from one Nazi office to another, he said. He used the job as a chance to pocket potatoes from the nearby kitchen during his messenger travels. He would bring the potatoes back to his starving mother. Youre desperate and you use any means you can, he said. Mr. Metz tried to enjoy some play with the other children in the camp. I learned to speak the Czech language, he said. You can always communicate. The children played soccer from time to time with a ball made of old rags tied together. At mealtime Mr. Metz and the other prisoners would gather in line and wait about a half hour for some watery soup with a potato peel. Usually it was the same routine every day. But on Nov. 11, 1943 Armistice Day the date in 1918 when the armistice between the Allies of World War I and Germany was signed the Nazis were angry and decided to punish the prisoners. They woke us up in the middle of the night, Mr. Metz said. We were up for hours. They counted. People fainted and died from standing. After spending 18 months in Theresienstadt, Mr. Metz, his mother and the other prisoners there were liberated. On April 15, 1945, white buses arrived to take them away from the camp. It took a moment for the news to settle in with Mr. Metz. After being there for 18 months you dont believe anything. But a warm welcome, food and chocolate treats awaited from the Red Cross. I couldnt believe it, Mr. Metz said. Arrested, in camp, then being freed? It was the happiest day of my life. After going through a week of quarantine they stayed in Sweden until Denmarks occupation ended. On May 5, 1945, Mr. Metz and his mother went back to Denmark. They found that their apartment was gone rented out to another tenant. But life was good. His mother found work and he resumed his studies. Though they lost much, they hung on to what they had and what they craved most. We were free, Mr. Metz said. Freedom and time are now precious to Mr. Metz. Mr. Metz married his wife Eileen and had two daughters. He nurtured a successful career in the food business and lived a good life. For most of his life he never spoke of his experiences in the Holocaust or Theresienstadt Concentration Camp. But about 10 years ago, he started reflecting and speaking. You start to reflect when you get older, he said. Mr. Metz wrote and selfpublished A Danish Boy in Theresienstadt. He speaks regularly to groups and schools around the country. Its very important for me that we never forget that the Holocaust took place, he said. There are a lot of deniers in the world. I want to make sure that in honor of my father the other people that perished that we never forget, he said. Cesare Frustaci Age: 79 Place of birth: Naples, Italy Holocaust experience: Forced to live on the streets of Budapest as a child after his mother was sent to the Jewish ghetto. Family: Son of Italian composer and songwriter Pasquale Frustaci and Hungarian ballerina Margit Wolf. Lives in Port Charlotte with his wife Judy Machado. He is a father of two daughters and several grandchildren. Today: Mr. Frustaci speaks to schools, religious organizations and civic groups around the country. He recently was awarded the title of Meritorious Italian by the Italian government during a ceremony in at the Italian Embassy in Washington, D.C., in January. To learn more: Mr. Frustaci speaks at The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida and his book Not a Trace of Smoke: Choice, Chance or Miracle is available on Amazon. Margit Wolf placed her tiny hands on her 7-year-old son Cesares head. She blessed him and then sent him away to live on the streets of Budapest during World War II. He and Hungarian Jewish mother were living in a Budapest ghetto. Several years earlier his mother had been forced to leave her husband and Cesares father, noted composer Pasquale Frustaci, in Naples, Italy. The anti-Semitic laws put in place by the countrys fascist party dictator, Benito Mussolini, required Jews to be deported. But none of that mattered anymore. Cesares mother, an accomplished ballerina, now wore a yellow Star of David affixed to her dress and prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to save her son. The ghetto was not safe. It was well known that children and teenagers were rounded up by the Nazis and drowned every day, said Mr. Frustaci. My mother was a rather smart woman to separate from her son. She thought I might be safer on the street. Before sending the young Mr. Frustaci onto the war-torn streets she beseeched him to be safe and told him how. You are not a Jew but a Roman Catholic, she said. You are never to return again (to the ghetto). With those words she tucked his Italian birth certificate and baptismal certificate in his pocket and handed him a little something to eat. Now, Cesare was on his own. The metropolis of Budapest lay ahead. At the beginning, I didnt know what to do, he said waving his hands in front of his face. Then he remembered his child play of hide and seek. He recalled a large statue that he used to use for hiding. He decided that the statue might make a good hiding and sleeping spot. After staying behind the statue for a couple of cold nights it occurred to him that he had the key to the cellar of his and his mothers former apartment before being ousted to the ghetto. So for the next couple of months, he hid in the cellar. During the day he strategized ways to survive. He collected tennis balls for tips at the nearby tennis courts. The money he made from the tips fed him. He asked the management at one of the tennis courts if he could clean the bathroom and showers. By having access to the bathrooms he was able to take care of his hygiene and sanitary needs. Though he was surviving, Cesare never lost sight of the constant peril and threat he lived. One day he was walking alongside the bridge that stretches over the Danube River when he heard shouting from across the way. His voice shakes as he recalls a young SS officer shouting at a young woman carrying a baby. Mr. Frustaci heard him call her a dirty, stinking Jewish whore. And then he ran up to the woman and grabbed her baby and flung the child over the bridges railing. He said the mother, hysterical at that point, lunged to the bridge to see where her baby had fallen. The SS guard took his pistol and shot the woman. He then grabbed the lifeless woman by her legs and heaved her into the river. Mr. Frustaci became terrified at what he witnessed. That was the atmosphere in the summer of 1941, he said. What was surprising were the pedestrians. They didnt do anything. They just walked away. It was like it was just a normal day. One day, guards stopped Cesare. They wanted to know what a child was doing in the street. Though he produced his Italian papers and baptismal certificate but they were of no use SEE NEVER FORGET, A10 N E V E RF O R G ET N E V E R F O R G ET COURTESY PHOTOCesare Frustaci in 1948, his high school graduation photo, and his mother Margit Wolf in 1944.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 because the guards were Hungarian and could not read Italian. Cesare was captured and sent to a juvenile detention camp. At the camp Cesare had the job of collecting fruit from the trees to be boxed for the soldiers. But the job had its perks. At the top of my tree I could eat as much (fruit) as I wanted, he said. But by the time winter came around, the trees were bare and food was scarce. The children at the camp were starving. Local priests gave up their rations so the children could eat and as a result some of the priests starved to death. I remember waking up to dead children, Mr. Frustaci said. But a series of coincidences made it possible for Cesare to survive. During the winter, the snowy water that he and the other children were drinking was making them sick. So he sneaked out of the detention camp to a nearby well to collect water. He would crawl back, trying to stay undetected. On these treks he discovered red berries on a bush. Though they were quite sour, he ate them. Later he learned he was eating rose berries, which are high in vitamin C. This apparently helped save Cesare from sickness. One day a soldier came to the detention camp door. Within moments doctors and nurses were to attend to Cesare and the other children. Liberation had come. But Cesare would have a longer way to go in his journey. At the Red Cross, children many like Mr. Frustaci would be placed in adoptive homes since their parents were often presumed dead. And since the land and farms needed to be rebuilt and nurtured, children were often placed in agricultural settings where they could work and help their adoptive families. A kind pig farmer and his family adopted Cesare. He was renamed Geza Babaly and moved to a small village called Apaggy, about 20 miles north of Budapest. At the time he thought his mother had died in the war. But she was imprisoned in Spandau, a concentration camp in Germany. After liberation, Cesares mother set out to find her son. She walked back from Germany to Budapest. Mr. Frustaci compares his mothers trek to that of walking from Florida to Canada. Once she was there she started looking for me, he said. She combed through nearly 200 villages carrying a newspaper image of Mr. Frustaci as a young child. When Mr. Frustaci was in kindergarten, he was picked to give a bouquet of flowers to visiting Italian dignitary Count Galeazzo Ciano, the son-in-law of Benito Mussolini. A news photographer captured an image of Mr. Frustaci falling into the dignitarys arms as he stumbled to give the flowers to him. After the war, Mr. Frustacis mother went back to her damaged apartment and found the photo clipping and set out to find her son. After a year-and-a-half of searching village to village, she finally found her son. She never gave up to find me, Mr. Frustaci said. Mother and son went back to Budapest where they focused on Mr. Frustacis education. After the war, Mr. Frustacis challenges were not over. When he finished high school he became an expert in electronics and wanted to go back to his place of birth in Italy to study at the university level. But the Hungarian communist regime, now in power, did not want to lose a skilled young man. On several occasions, Mr. Frustaci was forced to go to a place know as The Terror Building to be interviewed. They tortured me, he said. But once again, fate seemed to step in and help Mr. Frustaci this time helping part the Iron Curtain trapping him in Hungary. In 1955, Ital y was playing a championship soccer match against Hungary. During that time, Mr. Frustacis mother happened to be walking down a street when she recognized an old friend from her ballet days. The two women met up and Mr. Frustacis mother shared the problems she was having getting help for her son to return to Italy. Her friend promised to contact Mr. Frustacis father when she returned to Italy. Apparently, Mr. Frustacis mothers friend told her husband about the problems he was having leaving Hungary. Her husband then contacted a good friend, Monsignor Angelo Roncalli, for help. And he did. And on Aug. 12, 1956, Mr. Frustaci left Budapest and arrived in Venice. Monsignor Roncalli is better known as Pope John XXIII. Years later Mr. Frustaci earned a doctorate in engineering, married and raised a family. I have had a beautiful and wonderful life, he said. Now the Port Charlotte retiree devotes his time to speaking out against Holocaust deniers and sharing his story in hopes of inspiring tolerance and peace. It is my mission, since 2004, to pass the torch to the younger generations the history of Second World War and the Holocaust, he said. Isaac Klein Age: 84 Place of birth: Sotomor, Czechoslovakia Holocaust experience: Forced in boxcars to Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. As a twin child, he was used in Dr. Josef Mengeles medical experiments at Birkenau. Family: Except for his twin brother, Tzvi, his childhood family of five sisters, three brothers and his parents perished in Auschwitz. Mr. Klein is married and has three sons. Today: Mr. Klein volunteers at the Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach to share his experiences. To learn more: Mr. Klein speaks every Sunday morning from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach. Contact the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach for more information at holocaustmemorialmiamibeach.org. Isaac Klein spent part of his youth being poked, prodded and poisoned by a doctor who used to smile a lot. Mr. Klein, 84, is one of the twins used in medical experiments by Nazi physician Dr. Josef Mengele at AuschwitzBirkenau Concentration Camp in 1944. Dubbed the Angel of Death, Dr. Mengele selected Mr. Klein and his twin brother Tzvi, who were 13 at the time, for experiments that included injections, skin grafts and constant blood draws. Mr. Klein who was born in the farm community of Sotomor, Czechoslovakia was forced along with his large family onto boxcars for two weeks with no water, food or sanitation in 1944. Once they reached Auschwitz in Poland, Mr. Klein and his twin brother were selected to stay in the camp rather than go to the gas chambers. Because he and his brother were selected for medical experimentation, their heads were not shaved like the rest of the prisoners, Mr. Klein said. Every day he and his brother would be subjected to unorthodox experiments. But Dr. Mengele himself wouldnt do the actual experiments on Mr. Klein and his brother. The dirty job was done by other doctors, he said. Meanwhile, inside the death camp, they wore striped uniforms, ate meager rations and were treated cruelly. Mach schnell, Mr. Klein said he remembers hearing screamed. Mach schnell is German for hurry up! He said daily activities at Auschwitz consisted of roll call which could last for hours clearing away dead bodies, and punishment. Shortly before liberation, Mr. Klein and the other prisoners were forced to march to a different camp as the Russian Army moved closer. On the death march, prisoners were not given food, water or shelter. Many were beaten and died along the way. Mr. Klein said some prisoners ate a dead horse they found on a farm during the march and he was forced to lay dead bodies across puddles and sleep on them to keep from drowning. They reached Austria and Mr. Klein and the other remaining prisoners were set to be executed when they heard loud booms. Liberation. Suddenly the German guards took off, he said. After liberation, he and his twin brother the only remaining members of their family of 12 left for Palestine. But once their boat arrived, the British would not let them in. About to run out of food and water, Mr. Klein, his brother and the other refugees surrendered to the British. They were imprisoned in the Gulf of Haifa for 10 months. After their detainment, they were released to the Jewish population in Palestine. Mr. Klein joined and served in the Israel Army for four years. He participated in events that led to Israels independence in 1948. In 1962, he and his wife moved to Brooklyn, N.Y., where they raised their family. And eight years later, Mr. Klein and his family moved to Miami where worked as a handyman. He is now retired. On Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. he volunteers and speaks at the Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach.

We still dont live in a peaceful world. People are still killing each other. Miriam Patipa Age: 87 Place of birth: Dolha, Czechoslovakia Holocaust experience: Forced in boxcars to Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Worked in forced labor at oil refinery and hand grenades munitions factory. Family: Widow of Eugene Patipa, and mother of two sons and grandchildren. Today: Mrs. Patipa, a Palm Beach Gardens resident, is retired and speaks about her experiences in the Holocaust when requested. To learn more: Contact the Alpert Jewish Family & Childrens Services for more information at jfcsonline. com. The last words Miriam Patipa heard her mother say were to her older sister Eva: Take care of the child. Then her mother disappeared in the column of bodies being dragged off to the gas chambers and crematorium at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in 1944. Mrs. Patipa, a Palm Beach Gardens resident, shares her experiences of surviving the Holocaust in the hopes that no one will ever forget the lives lost. In a recent interview she gently ran her hand across a picture of her and sister taken shortly before the Hungarian fascists came and forced them into box cars to AuschwitzBirkenau death camp. On May 15, 1944, Mrs. Patipas birthday, they were dragged off to the train station. There were like 100 people in the car, she said. We couldnt even go to the bathroom. She recalls her mother saying, Children, its not going to be so bad. Once they arrived, Mrs. Patipa tried to make herself look smaller and younger so she could stay with her mother. But as she clung to her mother, she felt a hand hit her on the shoulder. It was Dr. Josef Mengele, the infamous physician of medical experimentation at AuschwitzBirkenau. He asked her age and she said 13 and he said, Strong enough. So there it ended. Her mother and other siblings were forced to go to the right the line that leads to the gas chamber. Take care of the child, she heard her mother tell Eva as she disappeared from sight. Alone with her sister Eva, Mrs. Patipa moved through the line. Handed a needle and thread she was forced to sew her initials on everything she would use. They were told to leave all of their possessions behind. Then they were shaved from top to bottom she said. She didnt get a piece of soap to shower. And that was a good thing. Those given soap were brought into the showers where they were gassed. You heard the screams, Mrs. Patipa said. After getting settled in her tiny bunk she asked a Polish girl named Bella where she could find her mother. The girl pointed to the chimneys outside and said You see that smoke? Your mother is burning now. Her routine at Auschwitz consisted of roll call, which could last for hours, selection and eating a soup with a dishwater consistency. You were getting so-called soup, she said. Selection for extermination was always frightening. They would line us up and choose who was strong and weak, she said. One time, another girl helped hide her in the barracks because she was feeling weak and couldnt stand. Mrs. Patipa is thankful for the day she and another girl decided to switch spots in in line. Her position allowed her to be selected to help reconstruct an oil refinery that the U.S. had bombed. We were there for about three months, she said. Then one day bombing began again. Mrs. Patipa and the other girls tried to take cover but many were killed in the bombing. After that, she and some of the other girls were brought to work in a munitions factory making hand grenades. It was there that she created a prayer book. She learned to write the Jewish prayers from an older woman who had squired away hers in her bosom. Inside her prayer book which she fastened with wire she found at the factory and wrote with the blue paint used for the grenades she wrote a poem about the loss of her mother. To this day, the poem makes her cry and yearn for her mother.I am so sad and I sit here all alone My mother, my sisters and brother are taken so far from me If I could only one more time be so lucky And with my mother and sisters and brother be together But destiny does not bring me that happiness Because the time still does not ever come My only dear mother, when will you yet come To take me in your arms, kiss me and bestow your great love on me. Poem by Miriam Patipa (translated from German) from her Poems & Memories prayer book, March 26, 1945.Aurelia (Goldie) Schwartz Age: 91 Place of birth: Romania Holocaust experience: Dodged being taken by Nazis. Kept hidden by her boss. Had false documents and identity. Her mother and sister survived Auschwitz-Birkenau Death Camp. Family: Widow of Rudolf Szenasi, and Arthur Schwartz, nephews Today: Mrs. Schwartz, a West Palm Beach resident, speaks about her experiences in the Holocaust when requested. To learn more: Contact the Alpert Jewish Family & Childrens Services for more information at jfcsonline. com. At 19 years of age, Aurelia Schwartz made the decision to move away from her family to be closer to Arthur Schwartz, the love of her life, who was doing forced labor at a weapons factory in Budapest. She moved into her uncle Amin Kleins home and looked for a job. A friend referred her to the sewing workshop of Rudolf Szenasi. He hired her right away. She did not know at the time that her move made her chances of survival though the Nazi occupation of Hungary possible. As Nazi activity including rounding up Jews for the concentration and extermination camps increased, Mrs. Schwartz boss grew worried for her safety. When her uncle was taken away, Mrs. Schwartz boss decided to hide her in an apartment. He brought her food daily. She stayed there until he could obtain forged documents for her and move her to his mothers home in a small village on the outskirts of a city called Hatvan. Mr. Szenasi further protected Mrs. Schwartz by posting a sign on the house that said the there was disease in the home. No one ever came by. My boss saved my life, she said. Later when she was able to return to Budapest she learned her mother and sister survived Auschwitz. Afterwards, Mrs. Schwartz looked after her boss when the Russians came through. He feared arrest by the Russians, she said. She brought him food and supplies, Their heartaches and challenges turned into a love story. They married in 1948 and settled in Vienna. Together they ran a tailor business for 27 years, Mrs. Schwartz said. He passed away in 1973. Some time later, she married her first love, Arthur Schwartz. They moved to the United States and settled in Queens, N.Y., until moving to West Palm Beach to retire. She never had any children. In reflecting back on her life, she said she was watched over by God through the Holocaust. Everything worked out, she said. God loved me. For that reason, I am here.SEE NEVER FORGET, A12 N E V E RF O R G ET N E V E R F O R G ET A young Goldie SchwartzA young Miriam Patipa c am p in a, a Palm Beach Gard en t, xp er vi va ust that ev er l os t. n terran s s a and o rtly n ga rand box w itzm p. 94 4, hd ay d of f ip a is t ha nk sh e and another girl d e sp ots in in line.

To learn more: Contact the Alpert Jewish Family & Childrens Services for more information at www.jfcsonline.com. Margaret Langweiler was about 11 when the Hungarian Nazis took her and her family to a ghetto. Before the deportation, her father owned a bar and grill and the family lived an ordinary life. The family spent a month in the ghetto before they were sent to the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Once there, she was tattooed with the number 82977. Her number became her new name and identity. Sleeping quarters were harsh and cramped. Seven people slept in a little cubby, Mrs. Langweiler said. When one turned over we all had to turn. She got a chance to live when she was tasked to work in the laundry at a concentration camp near Dachau in Germany. I washed SS uniforms, she said. The rest of her family perished in the gas chambers, she said. Next to the concentration camp where she was imprisoned was a camp with men. She became friends with a prisoner who was a dentist there. One day she, another girl, the dentist and a few other men banded together and talked an SS officer into letting them escape, she said. He knew the war was going to end soon, she said. He helped us out. At the time, Mrs. Langweiler was 14 years old. But the world as she knew it was gone. Nothing mattered, she said. She and the other prisoners who escaped walked around the area until they found a convent. They slept outside and munched on produce from a nearby vegetable garden. After the Americans liberated them, Mrs. Langweiler and the other survivors were brought to a displaced persons center. When asked where she wanted to go Mrs. Langweiler chose America where she had an aunt living in Washington, D.C. But eventually she moved to New York to be with friends. There Mrs. Langweiler got started in the ladies garment union and became a dressmaker. She later married and had three children. But throughout her life she could never avoid the scars of the Holocaust. Its painful to talk about losing her entire family. She grips a portrait of her parents looking young, beautiful and untouched by the ravages of hate and bigotry. Its very painful to be all alone in the world, she said as her blue eyes well with tears. Hella Wartski Age: 85 Place of birth: Ungvar, Hungary Holocaust experience: Hungarian and German soldiers arrested Hella and her family in April 1944. They were transported to Auschwitz in overcrowded boxcars. Only she and her sisters survived. Family: Married to Heinz, also a Holocaust survivor.

For Hella Wartski, life as she knew it ended in April 1944. The young, freespirited girl from Ungvar, Hungary, was forced from her home. She and her family were sent along with other Hungarian Jews to a transit camp in Ungvar where they were forced to sleep in tents with no blankets and little food. No one ever told them why they had been arrested. I was only 14, Mrs. Wartski said. It was scary. In May 1944, Mrs. Wartski and her family were transported to Auschwitz in a closed boxcar used for freight. They were crowded into the car with no food, light or bathroom facilities. They endured the foul stench caused by people relieving themselves where they sat. The heavy, fetid air overwhelmed them. Because of the heat, the lack of water, the absence of fresh air and the stench, some people fainted, she said. Before the trip was over, some of the people went insane and some died. When they arrived at Auschwitz, Mrs. Wartski, her family and the other prisoners were herded into two columns. Her parents were sent to one line, she and her sisters to another. Mrs. Wartski wanted to go with her parents, but her older sister, Esther, held a tight grip on her. Somehow she knew the line they were in was safer than the one in which their parents stood. Soldiers with machine guns and attack dogs surrounded them during the process. Josef Mengele, the doctor known as the Auschwitz Angel of Death, looked upon the prisoners with disgust, Mrs. Wartski said. That was the last time Mrs. Wartski and her sisters saw their parents. Inside Auschwitz, they were tattooed with a number: their new identities. She became the number etched on her arm in blue ink 21760. Their names no longer mattered. The dehumanization process moved along. They shaved my head, Mrs. Wartski said. I had really pretty blond hair. They made us take off all of our clothes. They were told to shower and given black-and-white-striped prison garb and wooden shoes that caused blisters. Mrs. Wartski said she couldnt understand why God had forgotten them. Inmates who had been there longer told Mrs. Wartski and her sisters that to survive they needed to avoid direct eye contact with the guards and to obey all orders right away. When they asked the whereabouts of their parents and the others, they learned about the tall chimneys with smoke churning out of them. Many of the prisoners were exterminated right away in gas chambers and then incinerated in crematoriums. They slept in tiny bunks and had to make roll call every day, no matter how weak they were from lack of food or the cold and unsanitary conditions. Their survival depended on their ability to work and stay healthy. The guards punished them regularly for just about anything. Once when the Allies bombed the area, Mrs. Wartski and the other prisoners were made to kneel holding rocks above their heads, facing severe punishment if they dropped them. Mrs. Wartski grimaced as she described the stench that wafted through the camp from the crematoriums. It was a death factory that did business every day. One day, Mrs. Wartksi and several other prisoners were counted out and pushed into a covered truck. They had no idea where they were going. She wondered if it would be worse than Auschwitz. They were taken to Freudenthal, a slave labor camp in Czechoslovakia. Her job was to make fabric for the German army. The fact that they didnt spot any crematoriums reassured them a little. Mrs. Wartski took this relocation as a sign. To this day I am thinking how is it possible? she said. I survived because I am going to be strong enough. She figured that if she were working she would survive. You had to believe you were going to survive, she said. It was my mission. In April 1945, the Russian Army arrived and liberated the prisoners at Freudenthal. Mrs. Wartski came to the United States after she was liberated. There she met and married Heinz Wartski in 1950. She became a teacher like her father was before the gas chambers of Auschwitz. She tucks her head down and several soft sobs shake her tiny frame. Though she stills talks to people about her experience in the Holocaust, its painful and there is no closure. I dont want to know it anymore, she said. She twists her arm to gaze at her faded blue ink tattoo number. If you keep remembering it its hard, Mrs. Wartski said.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 NEWS A13 Family: Married to Hella, also a Holocaust survivor. They have two children, Evelyn and David, and two grand children. Today: Mr. Wartski speaks to students and groups at The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. To learn more: Read about Mr. Wartskis experiences at The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida or online at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. In the 1930s, the Nazi German regime gained control of the free city of Danzig where Mr. Wartski grew up. He and his family lived in terror of beatings, abuse and arrest. On a snowy day in the winter of 1938 in Danzig, Mr. Wartski and his sister Ruth were playing on their sled. The sled accidentally pulled into the path of a large car and forced Mr. Wartski, who was lying on top of the sled, into the snow. The men got out of the car. They were SS troops who came to see if the lad was hurt. Moments before, his dark-haired, older sister had run home. But Mr. Wartski, a fair-haired, blue-eyed boy, appeared Aryan to the Nazi SS troopers. By running away, Ruth saved my Aryan qualifications from being compromised, said Mr. Wartski. The SS troopers helped the young boy up, patted him on the head, gave him some money for a treat and sent him on his way. But should he have appeared Jewish, his treatment likely would have been different. There is no doubt in my mind that the SS must have recognized me as a fellow Aryan, otherwise it would have been their patriotic duty to back the car up and have another try, he said. This is one of many stories and incidents written up by Mr. Wartski in his book Holocaust Survival of Hella and Heinz Wartski. Mr. Wartski put the book together for use among students, educators and The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. Hes a retired electrical engineer who resides in Naples with his wife Hella, also a Holocaust survivor. One morning in 1938, Nazi troopers in search of weapons stormed his apartment building, he said. All of a sudden, there was a lot of screaming, yelling and panic in our building. Since I did not know whether the SS would also beat children, I decided not to chance it and ran away. The pajama clad boy waited outside until he saw the SS depart in their trucks. Our apartment was turned inside out and my father was bleeding from the SS beatings. Not long later, Mr. Wartskis father, a leather works owner, was arrested for conducting business with Aryans. With the help of a non-Jewish friend who bribed the Nazis, Mr. Wartskis mother, Berta, found out where his father was being held. This is how we found out that my father was in the Stutthof Concentration Camp, he said. Stutthof is located in a suburb of Danzig. Upon his fathers release from the concentration camp in 1939, the family planed to leave Danzig and Germany. At the time, Mr. Wartski was 10. He said his father was convinced the Nazis would kill as many Jews as they can get their hands on, He said we had to leave. They decided to go to Italy because, at the time, it was not anti-Semitic. In 1939, Mr. Wartski and his father left first for Italy since Jewish males were at greater risk for being arrested then women and small children. Mr. Wartskis mother, older sister and younger brother would later come. They arrived in Trieste, Italy, and the rest of his family later joined them in Milan. But soon antiJewish laws were put in place in Italy, which was under the fascist regime of Benito Mussolini who was aligned with Adolph Hitler and the Nazi regime. Mr. Wartski and his family found themselves on the run again. They escaped to the Italian Apennine Mountains. Mr. Wartski became part of the partisan resistance there. At the age of 14, he became known as Enzo Wartski on papers and documents. He delivered verbal messages to people who were supplying food. I was a good gofer, he said. Mr. Wartski spent nine months doing resistance work before being liberated in 1945. Once liberated, Mr. Wartski relaxed for the first time. To my recollection, this was the first time that I did not need to hide or run for my life, he said. It was a strange and new emotion that no one needed to arrest me, kill me or expedite me to a concentration camp, and there was no longer a reward offered for my capture. Today, Mr. Wartski and his wife Hella are volunteers at The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. Though he does not believe much has changed in terms of how fellow humans treat each other he feels this could change. Do away with all religion. Then we wont have anyone to hate. Manfred (Fred) Naftalie Age: 91 Place of birth: Berlin, Germany Holocaust experience: At 14 he escaped on the Kinder Transport from Berlin to London. At 21 he joined the Jewish Brigade a unit created in 1944 in Great Britain by Winston Churchill. He fought in Italy with the brigades Third Battalion, C Company. Family: His mother and siblings perished in the Holocaust. He married Rose, who has passed away, and has a daughter, three grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Today: Mr. Naftalie is a member of the Hallandale Jewish Center in Hallandale. To learn more: Mr. Naftalie speaks on occasion about his experiences in the Jewish Brigade. Fred Naftalie watched as people he knew were dragged away from their homes and lives. He was still a young boy living in Berlin with his family. His father was a furrier a trade that he was learning. But soon his father died of natural causes. He watched life for Jewish citizens become increasingly dangerous. His uncle hid in an apartment and was taken away to one of the concentration camps. I watched Nazis take people away, said Mr. Naftalie. The only thing I thought was to get out. Mr. Naftalie told his mother he would take whatever exit out of Germany he could take first. The Kinder Transport program had just begun operation for Jewish children up to 17 years of age. It would help transport children from Nazi-occupied Germany for England and other countries. Mr. Naftalie said his older sisters wanted to stay. He was 14 when he boarded the train with several other children for the Kinder Transport. They were all unaccompanied. He had 10 marks in his pocket or the equivalent of $5.50. Once on the train, Mr. Naftalie had to think fast. He said he gave away five of the marks to the conductor to keep him and the other children in his compartment safe. Then the Gestapo came aboard to check papers and documents. We were very scared but we kept our composure, he said. And it worked out all right. They did not hurt us physically. But the officers dressed in black uniforms with big black boots ransacked their luggage and stole valuables packed by their families. Mr. Naftalie said he remembers the Gestapo officers talking to each other and laughing. They looked at their passports with the large J for Jewish printed on them. Eventually the officers left and went to the next compartment that had a group of people leaving for Shanghai. They were crying and shouting, Mr. Naftalie said. He heard them being roughed up despite their papers. Once Mr. Naftalie made it to England an uncle, who lived in Liverpool, took him in. He worked for a furrier in London until he joined the Jewish Brigade in 1943. The Jewish Brigade was formed by Winston Churchill and helped the British military. Mr. Naftalie fought in Italy and for two years acted as an interpreter with his German language skills and background. Later he became a scout sergeant with the British military. I fought these bastards, he said. After the war, Mr. Naftalie got a visa to come to the U.S. He was to work with his uncle in New York who was also in the furrier business. On the way to America Mr. Naftalie met his wife-to-be, Rose Ginsburg. It was love at first sight, he said with a sigh. His wife came to England on a domestic permit during the Nazi persecution in Germany. Her brother had escaped certain death by jumping off a train to Auschwitz. Once in New York, Mr. Naftalie grew restless and wanted to see the country. His uncle encouraged him to take some time and look around. He took a train to Detroit where Rose had settled. He said he stayed for a week with her and her mother. Rose wanted him to stay longer. So Mr. Naftalie found work with a furrier in Detroit. He soon married Rose and they started making a family. In time, he bought out his employer and named it Furrier Furs by Frederick. He worked the business for 40 years before retiring to Hallandale. Today Mr. Naftalie who speaks on occasion about his wartime experiences still lights a candle in remembrance for his family and all who perished in the Holocaust. That this actually happened, he said. I will never consider them (Nazis) as humans. These were beasts. These were animals. To this day my feeling toward them is very deplorable and hateful.

An unarmed man, suspected of no crime, who three years ago was shot 16 times by police while lying in his bed, told a Seattle Times reporter in March that he bears no ill will for the cops who shot him. Said Dustin Theoharis, now 32, Sometimes (police) make mistakes. Theoharis was napping in a friends house in Puyallup, Wash., when police arrived to arrest the friends son, and when Theoharis reached for his ID, one officer imagined a gun, and the two officers opened fire, hitting Theoharis in the jaw, both upper arms, both lower arms, wrist, hand, shoulder, abdomen and both legs. He spent months in a hospital and skilled nursing facility and today is largely immobile and unable to work. (He won legal settlements totaling $5.5 million, but one-third went to lawyers, and much of the rest has paid medical bills.)Cant possibly be true Update: According to the mayor of Rio de Janeiro, it appears that some of the 2016 Summer Olympics aquatic events will take place among floating household trash and raw sewage in Guanabara Bay (although Mayor Eduardo Paes noted to the Associated Press in March that the events are scheduled for the cleanest part of the bay). To acquire the games, organizers had promised a massive cleanup, but now, with 500 days to go, Paes conceded that the goals will not be met and that, indeed, infrastructure improvements still have not halted the sewage flow into the bay. Despite the skepticism of a few tech writers, the Internet pornography supersite Pornhub insists that it is developing a wristband that stores energy (enough to power a cell phone) that can be generated by the up and down motion of masturbation. Pornhub announced in February that it will soon begin recruiting human testers for its WankbandCompelling explanations According to the 17-year-old bicyclist who was broadsided by a motorist at rush hour in Sheffield, England, on March 6, a woman at first alighted from the car to help. However, upon seeing the extent of the cyclists injuries, she apologized and walked away, telling the sprawled-out victim that her children were in the car and would be scared to see all that blood and so she would drive them on to school. (Witnesses provided a description of the vehicle, but the hit-and-run driver was still at large.) Trying to stake out a position on the Paris murders of the staff of Charlie Hebdo magazine, Pope Francis in January told an audience during his Philippines tour that freedom of speech is important, but that there are limits. If my good friend Dr. (Alberto) Gasbarri (who organized the popes visit and was standing at his side) says a curse word against my mother, Francis said, he can expect a punch. He then threw a mock punch toward Gasbarri. (The Vatican press office was later moved to clarify that violence in Gods name can never be justified.Cultural diversitySuper-Protective Parenting: Standardized placement exams are typically far more determinative of student success in Asian countries than the United States, and in March in some testing centers in Indias Bihar state, traditional rampant cheating became grotesque. Dozens of parents were seen climbing outside walls of one center (to pass answers and notes to the students), reminiscent of movie depictions of Santa Annas army scaling the walls of the Alamo. The week-long secondary school exams, testing 1.4 million students, had early-on seen 400-plus students expelled, nine bags of cheat sheets confiscated, and at least seven parents arrested. However, officials admitted that their security forces were overmatched by parents desperate to assist their children.Awesome!Chicagos WGN-TV was forced to apologize in March for a misjudgment in booking its Morning Show after an unconventional circus performer, in a live-television publicity segment, took a power saw to a metal box affixed to her crotch. Dancer Shana Vaughan-Gabor, of the Cirque De La Femme, created a dazzling shower of sparks, provoking the male host to first demand that the camera cut away, but then admitting, Ive been waiting my whole life to meet a woman like this. In the followup segment, a group of children who had witnessed the scene used descriptions like creepy and stinky, but Vaughan-Gabor later urged the station to save the children from boring (entertainment).The litigious societyIn March, the Administrative Office of the Courts revealed a slight increase in federal litigation in 2014, but a much larger increase in prisoner lawsuits. Leading the upturn was Dale Maisano, 63, serving 15 years for aggravated assault, who last year alone filed 3,613 cases concerning his Florence, Ariz., facility. Counting previous prison stints, Maisano has filed 6,076 complaints against various officials and prison system health-care providers. (In a 2014 USA Today report, Maisano volunteered that he himself could use some mental health help.)Unclear on the conceptIn March, the investment bank Credit Suisse Group AG agreed to pay $16.25 million to settle a clients charges that Credit Suisse gave faulty investment advice on two acquisitions by Freeport-McMoRan (one of the worlds largest producers of copper and gold). Actually, according to a Wall Street Journal report, Freeport will receive only $10 million in cash. The remaining amount it agreed to accept, to make up for Credit Suisses faulty advice, is $6.25 million worth of future investment advice.

GULFVIEWDENTISTRY.COM LOCATED IN THE FRENCH QUARTER 501 Goodlette Road North Suite B202 Naples, FL 34102 at its busiest hour in 2014. Moreover, the independent review found peak hour traffic increased 12 percent between 2014 and 2015 and 33 percent post-recession. The citys study found that traffic has decreased by 12 percent over the last 20 years. Proponents of the proposal say the citys vision has changed since 2005 and the new plan, created by KimleyHorn and Associates, better incorporates the adopted ideals of complete streets and the Blue Zone Project, both of which advocate walkable and bikeable pathways to address healthy lifestyles for residents and seniors. The main thing the city needs to consider is that things have dramatically changed since 2005, Jane Cheffy, president of Naples Pathways Coalition, said at the April 1 council meeting. Not only physically with 500 residential units to come, but philosophically, with a paradigm shift in thinking to favor complete streets, to favor blue zones and to make our city a beautiful, bikable city. Beth Brainard, executive director of Naples Pathways Coalition, maintains that motorists will change how they use Central Avenue once it is revamped. I think it is a faulty assumption that that everyone will try to use the street exactly the way they used it before, she said. You figure out your route. Those against the plan have expressed concern about incorporating two roundabouts, lane reductions and medians into a district that is mostly commercial now but that will quickly convert to a mixed-use neighborhood. Access to businesses and traffic flow are their main concerns. Councilman Doug Finlay has suggested that rebuilding Central Avenue as a three-lane road two traveling lanes with a center turning lane could be a solution that incorporates the business desire for direct access with the citys desire that the road by usable by motorists, cyclists and walkers. All I can tell you is that is whats being done in a lot of communities, he said. You can do it with the same amount of street. If those have been proven statistically to create accidents, then I think that should be examined. But its not an open highway. If we have to have bike lanes, I think theres a better way to treat the street rather than street reductions and roundabouts. Mr. Finlay objects to the notion that Central Avenue is going to become a Main Street once the building projects are finished. When people talk about Central turning into Main Street, USA, its nothing like it, he said. The new residential buildings are going to be offering 30-day rental units, he added, and what youre going to have is a tremendous influx of people during peak season. (Lane) reduction is asking for back-ups at Tamiami Trail and the 10th Street intersection. Business owners also claim that Central Avenue is an important truck route that services the downtown area, and that in addition to blocking access to their stores, the new plans will create a safety hazard. I think its just insane to take away our truck routes, said Pat Shapiro, owner of Flying Colors of Naples, a graphic design firm in the neighborhood. Its right near schools and the hospital and its just crazy If we have all our evacuation routes and delivery routes fill up with those roundabouts, its dangerous. Councilman Sam Saad called the Florida Weekly office to emphasize that plans to rebuild Central Avenue and improve east-west connectivity have been in the works for decades. Also, he maintains that the majority of business owners are on board with the new plan. Ive met with most of the business owners on the street and weve addressed their concerns the best we can, Mr. Saad said. The objectors seem to have nothing to complain about because theyll have increased property values, and the majority of the businesses will not have any access issues. The city is still in the design phase of the project, but staff anticipates that construction will begin in April 2016. Its not exactly the type of project we want to start at the height of season, said Greg Strakluse, director of the streets and storm water departments. Its taking a little bit more time through the design process. We want to make sure were working with the businesses and residents. Mr. Strakluse anticipates the next opportunity for public comment on the project will be in May, when staff presents council with traffic data, and again in June when the 60 percent design phase will be presented to council.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 NEWS A23 Velma is among one in four in Collier County who suffer from a mental illness. One in nine of us will experience some form of substance abuse. When a family member, friend or coworker battles a mental health or substance abuse problem, we suffer with them. Thankfully, David Lawrence Center is here for our community. A not-for-prot organization founded and still governed by community leaders, the David Lawrence Center is the behavioral health component of our communitys healthcare network. A true local resource, it relies on donations, fees and grants to invest in the health, safety and wellbeing of our community. When you or someone you love needs help, call on the highly compassionate, committed and competent professionals of the David Lawrence Center to inspire you to move beyond the crisis towards life-changing wellness. Mental health is a community issue. Fortunately, theres a community solution. Her Mind is Our Concern.After witnessing the unthinkable at 12 years old her mother shot at the hands of her stepfather Velma quit school and started picking in the elds of Immokalee to support her brothers and sisters. Velma remained upbeat and had a family of her own, but then experienced multiple, devastating losses and trauma and was diagnosed with a debilitating health issue. She felt suicide was the only way to escape her sadness, fear and pain. For her childrens sake, she nally asked for help from the David Lawrence Center. Here she found hope, healing and tools to cope with her mental and physical health problems by working with a case manager, therapist, and utilizing the Centers new, innovative telemedicine technology to meet routinely with her psychiatrist in Naples remotely from the Immokalee ofce. DavidLawrenceCenter.org NAPLES 239-455-8500 IMMOKALEE 239-657-4434 FOR MENTAL WELLNESS Where talking about death is the norm, not taboo BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com Death may not be proud, but it makes for great conversation, especially over tea and cake. Thats what hosts of Death Cafes around the world have found. Its is not therapy or grief counseling, organizers point out, but an forum that encourages discussion of the too-often-taboo subject of death and dying. Close to 2,000 cafes based on the original 2011 London model have been held worldwide, including in Sarasota, Fort Myers, Naples and Miami. In the modern world, (death) has become something much more invisible than it used to be, says Deeb Kitchen, Ph.D., a sociology instructor at Florida Gulf Coast University. Weve almost cast it as a failure of science or a failure of medicine. This is a way to overcome that silence. When four of Mr. Kitchens students hosted a Death Cafe last year, more than 30 people showed up. The second community Death Cafe at the university takes place from 5-6:30 p.m. Friday, April 10. True to the London tradition, its open to all and facilitated with cake and tea. At first, Everyones not really sure if its going to be morbid (or) if its going to be lighthearted, Toria Kwan, who attended the first caf at FGCU, said, so food kind of is that neutral connection. The conversation, she added, included funerals, burials, cremation, grieving and other rituals. We talked about the philosophical side of death and the social construction of an afterlife. Avow Hospice of Naples hosted three cafes last year at Second Cup in Mercato. People formed groups at tables or on couches and conversations percolated. Some people would travel down the path of spiritualism, others would talk about their experiences of having faced the loss of someone or being with someone when they died, said Deborah Jonsson, communications manager with Avow. In Sarasota, hospice volunteers and spiritual counselors Lori Marshall and Mark Sanders have held 13 Death Cafes in the last year and continue to host them from 1:30-3:30 p.m. every third Saturday of the month at Radiance of Sarasota. Attendees have ranged in age from 14 to 98 years, Mr. Sanders said, though groups generally skew toward retirement age. Their first few meetings drew 20-25 people; recent gatherings have had more than 100. Retirees who attend often discuss the process of dying and common sense, material concerns. The most popular theme thus far seems to be the right to die, Mr. Sanders said. People generally arent afraid to die. They just dont want it to be painful. So its not the death, its the dying process that people are mainly concerned about. For more information, visit deathcafe. com or follow the FGCU Death Cafe on Facebook.

One worry can be eliminated from the list on Get Yourself Tested Day coming up Thursday, April 23. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., testing for sexually transmitted diseases will be free day for those with student IDs and $50 for others. No appointment is necessary to be screened for syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and HIV. Knowing your sexual health status is smart, responsible and a normal part of being an adult, says Courtney Curatolo, director of public affairs and education for Planned Parenthood of Collier County. One in two sexually active young people will get a sexually transmitted disease by age 25, and most new STDs go undiagnosed, she adds. The only way to know for sure if you have an STD is to get yourself tested. Half of all new STDs in this country occur among young people 15 to 24, even though this age group represents only 25 percent of the sexually active population. For the past seven years, Planned Parenthood nationwide has worked with MTV, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to promote STD testing and provide young people with the information, education and services they need to take control of their sexual and reproductive health. An affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Planned Parenthood of Collier County also provides well-women exams and breast and cervical cancer screenings, as well as HIV and STD testing and treatment. More than 12,000 women, men and teens visit its health centers in Naples and Immokalee each year for services and information to help them make responsible and informed decisions about sexual and reproductive health. Screenings on Get Yourself Tested Day will be conducted at the Planned Parenthood of Collier County office at 1425 Creech Road in Naples. For more information, call 262-0301 or visit plannedparenthood.org/colliercounty. Study defines effects of teen binge drinking on adolescent brains and behavior NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHAdolescent binge drinking can disrupt gene regulation and brain development in ways that promote anxiety and excessive drinking behaviors that can persist into adulthood, according to a new study supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The study was conducted on animals by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine. A report appears online in the journal Neurobiology of Disease. These findings are an important contribution to our understanding of the alcohol-induced brain changes that make alcohol problems in adulthood more likely among young people who abuse alcohol, NIAAA Director George Koob, Ph.D., says. Previous studies have shown that people who start drinking before the age of 15 are four times more likely to meet the criteria for alcohol dependence at some point in their lives, and young people consume more than 90 percent of their alcohol by binge drinking. Researchers led by Subhash Pandey, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry and director of neuroscience alcoholism research at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a Research Career Scientist at Jesse Brown Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Chicago, investigated the effects of intermittent binge alcohol exposure during the adolescent stage of development in rats. To model adolescent binge drinking in humans, the researchers gave 28-day-old rats alcohol for two days in a row, followed by two days off, and repeated this pattern for 13 days. Some rats were followed into adulthood and observed for abnormal behaviors. They were offered both alcohol and water, and their alcohol-drinking behavior was monitored. Rats exposed to alcohol during adolescence exhibited changes in behavior that lasted into adulthood, long after their adolescent binge exposure to alcohol had ended. For example, they showed increased anxiety-like behaviors and drank more alcohol in adulthood. Prior research has implicated a brain structure known as the amygdala in anxiety and alcohol-drinking behaviors. When Mr. Pandey and his colleagues analyzed the amygdala of alcoholexposed rats in their study, they found that the complex of DNA and histone proteins within the amygdala cell nuclei appeared to be tightly wrapped. They also found increased levels of a protein called HDAC2, which modifies histones in a way that causes DNA to be wound tighter around them. Collectively, these kinds of changes to DNA or its associated proteins that change its function but do not affect the DNA sequence are referred to as epigenetic changes. Genes that lie within DNA that is tightly wrapped around the histones are less active than they are if the DNA is loosely wrapped, Mr. Pandey explains. The looser the DNA is coiled, the more accessible are the genes to the cellular machinery that makes relevant proteins. Mr. Pandey and his team found that the epigenetic changes they observed in alcohol-exposed rats were linked to lowered expression of two genes that nerve cells need to form new connections with each other. The diminished expression of the genes persisted in adulthood, even if alcohol exposure was stopped weeks before, and the researchers observed diminished nerve connectivity in the amygdala of these affected adult rats. But they then showed that a drug that blocks the activity of HDAC2 could loosen the coiling of DNA in amygdala cell nuclei of alcohol-exposed rats, and increased the expression of the gene needed for nerve cell connectivity in those animals. The animals then also exhibited less anxiety and reduced alcohol intake. The researchers plan additional studies of this target and other epigenetic drugs to investigate their possible use in reversing the persistent harmful effects of adolescent alcohol exposure. Part of the National Institutes of Health, the NIAAA is the primary U.S. agency for conducting and supporting research on the causes, consequences, prevention and treatment of alcohol abuse, alcoholism and alcohol problems. NIAAA also disseminates research findings to general, professional and academic audiences. Additional alcohol research information and publications are available at niaaa.nih.gov.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhen Kate Eldredge of Vernon, N.Y., returned to Cornell University in 2010 for her sophomore year, it wasnt to dorm life with a new roommate. She brought along her own furry roommate: Queezle, a 4-yearold Belgian tervuren. Kids leaving home after graduating from high school dont always leave by themselves. Sometimes, the family dog or cat goes along as well. Studies show that having a pet at college has benefits, but only when its done right. Factors to consider in making life work with a college pet include the students maturity level, the pets personality, campus housing rules, whether the pet will receive enough attention from a busy student, and who will care for the animal if the student must be away from campus. Here, experts share their experiences and advice for making a smooth transition. Deb Eldredge, DVM, notes that her daughter Kate was already an experienced dog trainer and handler at the time she left for college. And she knew that Kates course schedule as an English major gave her enough time to make sure Queezle got the activity she needed. When it comes to housing, colleges and universities that permit pets typically limit animals to certain floors or buildings. Rules address concerns such as noise, grooming and waste disposal. Pet-friendly dorms may also limit animals by size, breed or species. When Eliza Rubenstein went to Oberlin College in Ohio in 1991, freshmen and sophomores were required to live in dorms, where pets werent permitted. But her golden retriever, Alfy, was a huge part of her life they made pet-assisted therapy visits and participated in obedience trials and she successfully made a case for exemption from the dormitory requirement. I know that I missed out on some of the bonding and socialization that Id have experienced had I lived in a dorm, but I met lots of friends with Alfy as my icebreaker, too, and I got involved with the local student-run animal shelter, which in turn introduced me to my future co-author and lifelong best friend, says Ms. Rubenstein, who wrote The Adoption Option: Choosing and Raising the Shelter Dog for You with Shari Kalina. Cornell required freshmen to live in a dorm, but after that first year, Ms. Eldredge lived off campus so she could have Queezle with her. Although I loved my dorm, life without dogs just was not an option, she says. And her dog-friendly apartment proved to be a boon when Dr. Eldredges own dog, Hokey, was undergoing radiation therapy at Cornell for nasal cancer. Who pays for the pets food and veterinary care or looks after him when his new caregiver cant be at home? College students or new college graduates may foot the bill themselves through part-time or full-time jobs, or share the expenses and responsibilities with parents. For Ms. Eldredge, it helped to have a mother who was a veterinarian and only two hours away by car. And she arranged her schedule around Queezles walk times as much as possible and recruited friends to help when she couldnt. Whether young people are in school or just starting out in life, having the family pet along on the adventure can bring continuity and contentment, but its a serious commitment. As positive as my own experience was, I dont know that Id recommend taking a pet to college for most students, Ms. Rubenstein says. College, even with no pets involved, is a time of lots of work and not much money for most of us. If youre thinking of adding an animal to the mix, be sure you plan for the challenges as well as the fun. PET TALESBig dog on campus?College students with pets can be less stressed and less lonely, but making the situation work calls for commitment and cooperationEven if you cant bring your own pet to college, many universities, including Harvard, Yale and Drexel, now have resident therapy dogs.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 NEWS A35 ADVERTORIALAsk the Ophthalmologist Learning about LASIK and Common Questions:Michelle Diaz, MD/ Eye Centers of FloridaMany people have heard about LASIK or know someone who has had it done, but do not know what LASIK actually does. LASIK surgery is the use of a laser to correct the need for glasses or contact lenses. What if I need reading glasses?People around age 40 who need reading glasses are still good LASIK candidates as they can have something called monovision performed, which involves using the laser to correct one eye for distance vision and the other eye for close vision. What if I am older than age 50?Generally people over the age of 50 are not LASIK candidates.Does LASIK hurt?The answer is usually not. There is a slight discomfort and pressure during the surgery, but no need for pain medication after the surgery is done. What do I need to do to prepare for surgery?If contact lenses are worn they have to be removed a week before surgery. Prior to the treatment further instructions will be provided.

THE DIVA DIARIESBound for The Masters, packing a par for fashionHaving attended social events on the regular for the better part of the past 15 years, Ive gotten pretty adept at knowing what to wear to various functions, and I usually do a fairly decent job at interpreting what to wear for others. For instance, before a friend and I were to taking in a Sunday matinee at Florida Repertory Theatre, she texted and asked what she should wear. I texted back: Something comfortable, but not too casual what you might wear to a luncheon (not a lunch) and she nailed it. I even know the subtle distinctions between Black Tie, Black Tie Optional and Creative Black Tie. But what I dont know is what to wear to The Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National when my husband and I head there this week for the first day of play. If youre reading this and youre into golf, then youre likely pea green with envy right now. If youre reading this and you couldnt give a hoot about the sport, then you have no idea why this is such a big deal. So, in that case: If you like football, The Masters is the Super Bowl of golf. If you like movies, The Masters is the Oscars of golf. If youre a young child, The Masters is the Christmas morning of golf.And (and this is the really exciting part) not everyone can go to The Masters. Its super-exclusive, and you actually have to enter a lottery in which Augusta National only draws a small number of winners. So the odds of getting tickets arent great, and getting two tickets to the first day of play is like spotting a unicorn with Jimmy Hoffa riding on it. The fact that we won had my husband walking around in daze for weeks after we were notified. He still has this sort of glow around him. However, while he pretty much wept with gratitude, my first thought was: What to wear? Augusta National in Augusta, Ga., is a very Southern, very traditional club known for its magnolias and two-for-a-dollar moon pies. On the other hand, Ive read that the course is so hilly that its practically mountainous, and naturally my husband wants to walk the entire thing and see every famous hole. When I Google-Imaged something like, female spectators at The Masters, one photo that popped up was of Tiger Woods famous skier girlfriend Lindsay Vonn in a chic maxi dress with a fabulous hat and cute sandals. Id be ever-so-happy in something like that but, unlike moi, Lindsay was sitting in some comfy VIP area (probably sipping a mint julep) and not trudging the enormous course. Other ladies looked disappointingly dowdy in capri pants, fanny packs and sun visors. I keep picturing myself in a cute and preppy pink and green Lilly Pulitzer-esque number like a shift dress or maybe even culottes, but frankly, nothing looks fetching with comfortable white walking sneakers. Fortunately, I finall y found a pretty white gauze outfit and a hat much like Lindsay Vonns. And although Ill probably regret it, Im wearing sandals because my pastel green pedicure should not be hiding in lace-up shoes. If I can still walk when we get home, Ill have a full report for you, dear readers. And if you spot me on TV, hopefully I wont have moon pie all over my white outfit. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

BRAUNBROKER-ASSOCIATE, CRS2014 OVERALL TOP SELLING REALTOR COMPANYWIDE MONEY & INVESTINGSimple takeaways for a happy financial lifeAn ongoing, repetitive theme of this column has been to right order your financial priorities. Most people worry about investment portfolio and disregard several much more important financial decisions. Troubled personal relationships often translate into far less money available for investing: relationships with a spouse; with children; and with yourself. Multiple columns each year have been written on this topic. A healthy marriage keeps an estate intact while alive and after you die. Divorces result in duplicate living expenses and cause other financial inefficiencies. But a healthy marriage is not a free ride, as it requires a financial investment of its own, e.g.: expenditures that grow and keep the relationship healthy. A close and positive relationship with your children does not assure that your children will make positive lifestyle choices and avoid alcohol, drugs, gambling and other addictions. However, it might allow problems to be discovered early and nipped in the bud; if not, money will be expended toward reversing addictions. Most important is your relationship with yourself: your personal physical and emotional health. If you are not healthy and happy, it is very hard for you to function well in your familial relationships and at work. It is in later years that the toll of an illadvised lifestyle is made manifest. Healthy choices in eating, exercising, relaxing, etc. provide better odds that you will be able to live life to its income and investing fullest in your sunset years and escape health issues that were preventable and their attendant costs. Take advantage of tax advantaged retirement programs and health savings accounts. Go to an expert before you make your Medicare and Social Security decisions. Some of these decisions are not reversible. They are complicated decisions. They are extremely important decisions. Plan your estate with the help of an estate planning expert or online sources. Be clear about finances before marriage. Whether youre young and have two pennies entering your first marriage or older and have many pennies entering remarriage, its important to sort out your issues ahead of time. The most important issue is not your age, the amount of pennies you have, or whether its your first or second time to altar: it is your values, especially regarding money. Often, those values are engrained since childhood. If you and your mates lifes priorities do not align, your relationship is doomed to failure. Take your tax return to several accountants periodically to make sure that your current accountant has taken advantage of all tax savings. The tax code is mindboggling and a fresh look is often free. As to investing as this is where most readers always want to go: they want to know the direction of equities and bonds as if they are timing their portfolio and have strategies to enter and exit equity and bond markets But here is the reality. Investors waste a huge amount of time trying to understand the complexities of macroeconomics in a world that is hugely more complex than the investment world I entered in 1975. Since the 1980s, equity and debt markets have been in the sweet spot of declining interest rates and expansion of international bond markets. Corporations have benefited from hugely lower costs of debt capital; low rates and access to capital have allowed developing countries to expand at rapid rates and leveraged or credit unworthy governments to spend/borrow in the trillions. Low rates and easy access to debt capital always manifests in capital missallocations. The debt capital flows into non-debt investments that can become bubbles and allows spending that is not prudent. So easy access and low rates are a double-edged sword. The future is not knowable and it should be presumed that the next 30 years will be a repeat of the previous 30 years. Simple but effective portfolio construction is the most important investment decision to be made. Do not think that diversifying across industries or companies within industries is meaningful equity diversification, since in a crash this nominal equity diversification has failed. Instead, add to equity/bond portfolios assets that have capacity to do well in a crisis assets that have historically thrived on volatility; assets that have the potential to do well in an equity crash. Get rid of your investment biases; cut them out of your hearing and reading. Not sure if that is you? If you are ranting and raving or glued to read/hear the ranting of others (socially or in media), then you likely are investment biased. Seek the counsel of investment advisers within their realm of specialization. Dont forget to give generously, and not just charitably. Many a person is not looking for a charitable handout, but instead is looking for a door to start a new career, a full-time job, chance to prove their worth, etc. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

Grove Construction Corp. Based in Lee County where roughly 160 companies are licensed to repair, replace or build new roofs, Coconut Grove works up and down the Southwest coast. So does Galloway Roofing in Port Charlotte, where owner David Galloway, 44, who arrived on the southwest coast in 2006 after years working in the farm country of south-central New Jersey, was down to only three employees four years ago, but is now back up to 14 hardy and capable souls. Id say our work load has at least doubled, he notes. But keeping workers can be a problem after all, its a job where temperatures on a dark roof at 3 p.m. during the summer can climb above 140 degrees, and workers have to attend Mr. Galloways monthly safety meetings about avoiding heat stroke and not falling off. For Daryle Webber, raised on an Indiana farm and now founder and owner of Sand Dollar Roofing, finding the right workers is often difficult and sometimes nigh on impossible, he says even though the work is plentiful these days. Thats why Mr. Webber, at 56, works six days a week up on the roof himself, in the sun, with his crews. All their workers have to do to get plenty of work, they say, is bring the heat endurance of a camel, the flexibility and strength of a gymnast, daily discipline and carpentry skills, and the ability to work cheerfully and think quickly as part of a small team all day long, every day. As practitioners of one of the most dangerous jobs, roofers who can pay attention even when theyre hot and tired and avoid falling off are highly valued. Thats what the roofing market requires nowadays (which is pretty much what its always required), and not everybody can offer those abilities. But the growth numbers show that the work is there, according to Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Regional Economic Research Institute at the Lutg ert College of Business and for the business planners of future opportunity, those numbers also suggest that the work will be there again starting in 15 to 20 years, depending on the roof. Every new building permit, after all, means a new roof now, and likely repairs or a new roof in a couple of decades. Single-family building permits in the three coastal counties rose to a total of 537 in February 2015, 81 more than January 2015, and 138 more than February 2014, according to the report. Lee County issued 272 permits in February 2015, up 31 percent over February 2014. In February 2015, Collier County recorded 205 permits, 27 percent more than in February 2014. Charlotte County issued 60 permits in February 2015, an increase of 107 percent over February 2014. In part, those numbers with some others can also reflect a growth and recovery rate that hovers not only near the top in Florida, but in the United States, suggests the report, which is authored by Dr. Gerry Jackson, director of the Regional Economic Research Institute, and his colleagues. Taxable sales in December of 2014 had jumped 10 percent over the previous year; tourist tax revenues were up 27 percent in January for the three coastal counties, over the previous January; and sales for single-family homes were up 16 percent over the previous year. Not only that, but the unemployment rate for the five-county region (Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades) dropped from 6.1 percent a year earlier to 5.6 percent in February. For those who prefer hard evidence to numbers, however, a quick litmus test of growth in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties can come with a glance at the roofing business. Were somewhat seasonal both with rain and with our friends from the North, says Mr. Richards. We get a pop of business in the fall, in January, and just before season. And work has progressively improved for the last seven years were in the seventh year of an expansion, with work this year about the same as last, I would say. So we probably only have three, maybe five days a year when we arent working, and those are the days when its raining in the morning, and in the evening. The Pennsylvania-born son of a nuclear physicist and a musician, Mr. Richards, started out his working life building cabins in New England before arriving in Florida several decades ago. I was one of the lucky ones because I became an owner, I still have all 10 of my fingers, and I dont have to get up there, still. On the other hand, he had to survive the recession, when most construction workers took their skills and departed for greener pastures in the north, whether they existed or not. He did it, he says, by having no debt. So now weve had about seven years of growth, and maybe its time to start (reining that in), he adds. Many of those who get up to fix or install new roofs in Southwest Florida these days are Hispanic workers eager for the opportunity no matter what the conditions. The American-born white workers, if you want to think of it that way those guys dont exist anymore in any large numbers, says Mr. Webber. The Spanish people do 90 percent of the work down here, and thing about them is that they want to learn if you take the time to teach them. We hardly ever do piece work its 40 hours a week and time-and-a-half for over 40, thats the way I was brought up, and piece work only represents speed. Speed and quality do not go together maybe in NASCAR, but not in roofing. But bureaucracy and construction always seem to go together, and not always for the better, he adds. I guess the bureaucracy now is probably worse than it used to be from our perspective, says Mr. Webber. When the circle was broken (by the recession), so to speak, things changed. When you used to go pull permits, you spoke to the same person. But now we permit in probably seven different entities in the counties, and then in the cities in the counties. Its asinine that theres not a set protocol, but no one protocol replicates the other. So its a lot tougher. Its mind blowing what you have to do. But the bureaucracies are trying. In Charlotte County, for example, roofers can now secure online roofing permits in some cases, with permits issued the same day (except for tile, which requires a plan review), according to the countys buildings department. And photographs no longer have to accompany a re-nail inspection affidavit. Still, with nine inspectors working at the county level, permit waits are 10 to 12 days for a new dwelling, eight to 10 days for roofs on additions and remodels, and seven to nine days for accessories. Meanwhile, the work goes on and there will be more of it. Our business is predominantly repair and replacement, and thats influenced by the availability of funds and the age of stock housing, explains Mr. Richards. So weather events in 2004 (Hurricane Charley) affect what will happen before long a shingle roof should last 15 to 22 years and well start getting into that chunk of business at some point. And the men doing the work few women ever try their hand as installers, they say will be young for the most part, and increasingly valuable as time goes on. Mr. Richards is philosophic. Before I die, I think well be paying as much for people who do roofing and carpentry as for any other professional service. Fewer people are willing to do that work, now. In our culture, its more popular or common to sit in front of a computer. So I think the value of that person is going to go up. I have a master carpenter who is 63, and another guy recently retired who is 62. But for those men on the roof, the mandatory retirement age should probably be in the 50s. They work for 20 or 30 years, and its hard on them. Its a young mans game.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Mutual Funds: When to WorryJust as you do with great stocks, you should aim to hang on to a great mutual fund for many years. Still, sometimes its best to sell or at least consider selling a fund. Here are a handful of reasons to do so: Expenses are steep or rising. There are lots of terrific inexpensive funds, so you neednt pay a lot for solid results. Indeed, if your funds assets are growing significantly, you should expect its fees to drop. Its been underperforming its benchmark for a while. Ignore a bad year or two, but prolonged poor performance is worth examining closely. Remember that market trends, for which no manager is to blame, can affect many funds. If the tech sector slumps, your tech fund probably will, too. Its strategy has changed. If your funds investment style seems to be drifting over time into a territory you dont need or want, consider selling. Some small-cap funds may stray into bigger companies, for example, or a conservative, value-oriented fund might start chasing some high-fliers. Its manager has left. A managed mutual funds performance is very dependent on its managers. If you dont have confidence in the new manager, you should also consider departing. Its getting very big. Very successful funds tend to draw many new shareholders and new dollars to manage. Theres a downside to that, because when funds have too much money, they can run out of good places to invest it. When funds spread their money too thin, performance can suffer. Its not very shareholder-friendly. If shareholder letters dont tell you much and gloss over issues of interest, or the fund stops referring to its managers by name, thats not confidence-inspiring. Be on guard when small fund companies are absorbed by bigger ones, too.You can learn more about funds at fool. com and can research them at morningstar.com. Also, read Common Sense on Mutual Funds by John C. Bogle (Wiley, $35). Saved by Selling HalfMy dumbest investment was Nortel Networks, which has filed for bankruptcy. It kept going up and up then it crashed. Now I realize that it was a pure momentum play; everyone bought it because everyone else was buying it. There were signs of trouble, and it had strong competition. Nortel bought many small tech companies but failed to integrate them very well. The only bright spot: Every time it doubled, I sold half of my holding. I think that is a good approach to take when a stock price goes up faster than the fundamentals seem to justify. E.M., Victoria, British Columbia, CanadaThe Fool Responds: Its risky to chase a surging stock without thinking about its competitive advantages and valuation. Regularly selling half your shares saved you from losing your shirt, but note that had it been a long-term winning company, you would have been reducing your ultimate return by shrinking your number of shares held. Still, selling some of your shares is a good move if youre uncertain about a companys future but not yet convinced you should sell all your shares. Betting on BiotechThe biotech arena can be a risky one for investors, as many drugs, which take many years and a lot of money to develop, never end up winning FDA approval. Its also a difficult industry for nonscience types to understand. Still, theres great potential in biotechnology, and risk-tolerant investors with a long-term mindset might want to consider investing in Gilead Sciences (Nasdaq: GILD), an industry leader. The company sports two very successful (and expensive) hepatitis C drugs, Sovaldi and Harvoni. Additionally, its HIV drugs produce about $10 billion in sales annually, and its cardiovascular drugs Letairis and Ranexa have combined sales north of $1 billion a year, too. Further out, Gilead Sciences continues to advance its next-generation hepatitis C therapies through clinical trials, and is expanding its footprint into cancer treatment with the launch of Zydelig. Gilead Sciences is growing briskly, too. Between 2013 and 2014, the company more than doubled its revenue. As the company cuts some prices to shore up market share, management expects 14 percent growth in 2015. The stock, with a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio recently near 10, is appealingly valued. And the company is initiating a dividend payment, too. With its cash pile recently topping $11 billion, it can afford the dividend and a lot more research and even acquisitions, too. (The Motley Fool owns and has recommended Gilead Sciences.) I began in 1913 as a fancy store in Milan, offering leather bags and luxury accessories. Today Im a top global fashion brand. In 1919, I became the official supplier to the Italian royal household and got the right to include the coat of arms of the House of Savoy in my logo. I bought the British shoe company Churchs in 1999 and Italys Car Shoe brand in 2001. I launched eyewear in 2000 and a touch-screen phone in 2007. Ive sponsored literary contests and movies, but contrary to popular culture, Ive not sold to the devil. Who am I? (Answer: Prada Group) Losses in IRAsQCan I deduct a capital gains loss from selling a stock in my IRA? J.B., Daleville, AlabamaANope. With a traditional IRA, you typically deposit pre-tax money in it and are eventually taxed on your withdrawals in retirement, regardless of any gains or losses that happened along the way. (If you make non-deductible contributions to your traditional IRA, they wont be taxed when you take them in the form of distributions.)With Roth IRAs, you invest posttax money and eventually withdraw it all tax-free. But you dont claim losses (or get taxed on gains) in the interim.***QWhats a hostile takeover? P.L., Marlborough, New HampshireAIn the business world, when one company buys another, its typically done with mutual agreement. Managers from each company will meet with one another and freely share information about their businesses.Hostile takeovers are different, though, as the company to be bought is not happy about the acquisition and not very cooperative. A hostile takeover happens when one company sees some strategic value in another. It may make friendly overtures and be rebuffed. If so, it may then start dealing directly with the targets shareholders, offering to buy their shares from them for either a certain amount in cash or an exchange of stock.If enough shareholders respond, the acquirer can gain control. In order to entice shareholders, the offer will generally be for a price significantly higher than the targets current stock price. (Companies whose share prices have slumped are extra-vulnerable to takeovers.) Some famous hostile takeovers include InBev buying AnheuserBusch, Sanofi-Aventis buying Genzyme and IBM buying Lotus. Its worth noting that many hostile takeover attempts fail, as did Hiltons 1997 bid for ITT. Got a question for the Fool?

Mediterra courses set for $14 million in improvementsMediterra members have approved more than $14 million in improvements to the communitys two Tom Faziodesigned golf courses. The work will include a complete renovation of The Club at Mediterras North Course. The South Course is mid-way through a two-year renovation, and the North Course project will commence this spring with the installation of a new irrigation system. Originally slated for 2016, the work on the North Course was accelerated to reduce costs and proactively accommodate a growing membership. Future plans also include an expansion to facilities at The Sports Club and Wellness Center. Golf course improvements to Mediterras 36 holes will include replacing irrigation systems, rebuilding bunkers, adding two pump houses, improving airflow and sunlight and re-grassing. The remainder of the South Course project is targeted for completion by winter 2016. The North Course project also includes improvements to the driving range and will be completed in fall 2016. Planned improvements to The Sports Club will provide additional meeting space for Mediterras growing number of lifestyle clubs, as well as more room to accommodate an increase in individual use of the facility during peak hours and the ability to conduct simultaneous fitness classes. The Sports Club currently offers an equipment room, class areas, a pool, spa services and tennis and bocce courts. During the past five years, The Club at Mediterra has undergone significant improvements with the addition of lighted bocce courts; the introduction of the popular Tavern on 18; an expansion of the clubhouse kitchen, alfresco dining and gathering spaces; and a remodel of the main Grille Room dining area and the adjoining clubhouse lounge. Additional projects also have added a rounded court, lighting and grasstiered stadium seating to The Sports Clubs seven-court tennis complex, as well as a remodeling of the private Beach Club along the Gulf of Mexico. The emphasis on evolving and improving Mediterras amenities has not only enhanced the quality of life for residents, but it has also resulted in increased home sales and, in turn, an increase in memberships, according to Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes, which has managed all new home sales and marketing for the luxury community since 2009. Mediterra is 95 percent sold, with single-family estate and luxury villa homes available in six neighborhoods. The community in North Naples off Livingston Road was recently named among the Best Retirement Destinations; it was the only Florida location, one of only two in the U.S., and the 10th best in the world. Mediterras onsite amenities also include neighborhood parks and eight miles of walking and jogging trails. The Golf Learning Center offers indoor and outdoor hitting stations, video equipment with launch monitor, a 2.5-acre short game practice complex with three greens and a staff of certified PGA professionals. Membership opportunities at Mediterra are limited to just 225 members per 18 holes.Homes and home sites at Mediterra are priced from $1 million to more than $7 million. For more information, call 949-8989 or visit mediterranaples.com. Club Pelican Bay set for new clubhouseThe Club Pelican Bay plans to replace its 35-year-old clubhouse with a new two-story building with more space and new amenities. The new clubhouse will look out over the fairway, lake and the clubs signature ninth hole. Covered and open decks will run the length of the clubhouse and include new fire pits and increased capacity for outdoor dining. A fitness center and spa will be added upstairs over the cart building, which will include a golf-training area. The $27 million project will be staged to provide club members continued use of the club throughout construction. The new cart building will be completed before the clubhouse is razed, and its second floor will be used as a temporary clubhouse with a kitchen and outdoor dining. The building that houses the mens and womens locker rooms will be renovated during construction. The clubs full-time employees will continue work throughout the project.The Club Pelican Bay has 27 holes of golf, designed by Arthur Hills, with six tee locations on each hole to offer challenges for players of all levels. The private, memberowned club welcomes residents and nonresidents of Pelican Bay with member approval.

No one will take you seriously if you arrive without your monocle and jodhpurs. Much to the delight of many local fantasy enthusiasts and to the confusion of the uninitiated Southwest Florida hosts its very first steampunk event Friday, April 10, at Koreshan State Park in Estero. What is steampunk? Put simply, its a genre of literature, music and art that borrows heavily from Victorian aesthetic principles and the notion that technology may not have diverged from steam power. Enthusiasts revel in opportunities to masquerade as members of this alternate reality, letting their minds play with ideas of what 2015 would be like had the human race had chosen Tesla over Edison. The idea came to Koreshans volunteer music coordinator, Mary Aleba, when she started expanding the parks musical programs and heard about Steampunk Stompers, a themed band comprised of local professional musicians. She and bandleader Mar k Pettey who plays trumpet, agreed that Koreshans period setting would be an ideal location to set off the bands gimmick, and that a Steampunk Stompers Its steampunk time at Koreshan Lab Theater produces a classic about the Holocaust BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com SEE DIARY, C4 The Frank Diary of AnneIn spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.

All the heartbreak and bitter truths about our lives we put them on the page for everyone to see. I currently have the bad luck or the poor choice of dating a man whos written a memoir about his life experience. Yes, the book is brave and raw and vulnerable, but its also revealing. Especially when it comes to his past relationships. As I read this new beaus book, I was moved by his story of deciding to join the Army and the rigors of his two deployments in Afghanistan. With his candor and inner conflicts, I found myself falling for him on every page. And then I got to the part about his girlfriend. Whos this tramp? I thought. He wrote about her in painstaking detail: her good looks and sophistication, the way she knew how to bake the best cookies. When things for the two of them tanked, I felt relieved. Finally, I could get back to admiring him. Then another woman showed up. Damn it. Luckily, they didnt work out either. That relationship hung on longer and was messier in the breaking, and it carried us almost to the end of the book. Thank God, I whispered to myself. But then at the very last, another woman popped up, this one spectacular. My new beau put it all on the page: her beauty, her smarts, how he planned to spend his life with her, the children they would have. I held my breath for the final pages of the book, hoping things would fall apart. When they didnt not on those pages, anyway I flipped to the acknowledgements section. There, at the very bottom, on the last and most important line, he extended his gratitude to the person he called the love of my life.: What the I said out loud. A few days later, I worked up the nerve to ask him about her and he just waved a dismissive hand. Things had ended, he said. When he described how the relationship fell apart, I recognized the same pattern from the previous two women in his memoir. This is when it struck me: Here, as plainly as anyone could want, was my new boyfriends relationship playbook. I saw his tendencies with startling clarity, and I recognized in our budding romance his signature dating style. I could even guess how things would end for us. Maybe, I thought, this is it. Maybe I shouldnt waste my time. But the maddening and beautiful thing about love is that its wholly unpredictable. Just because our relationships have gone a certain way in the past does not mean they will go the same way in the future. I have a friend on her fifth husband who swears shes finally gotten it right. This one, she says, is a keeper. So why should I be so quick to give up on this new beau? Sure, the road ahead looks rocky, but I like to think I have an unfair advantage: all his relationship quirks, written out on the page.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 9-14, 2015 from the Nazis with her family and neighbors in Amsterdam during World War II. The diary, discovered by after the war and after Annes death in a concentration camp, became known around the world and is required reading for many middleschool children. It consists of the reflections, observations and musings of a girl who, in typical teenage fashion, is trying to make sense of herself, her feelings and the world around her during a time when the world was not making much sense to even adults. Ms. Trossbach decided her Laboratory Theater of Florida would produce the show this year for numerous reasons. Its a Pulitzer Prize-winning play, she says. I think its won every award known to man. (In addition to the Pulitzer Prize, The Diary of Anne Frank won the 1956 Tony Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.) And its just constructed so beautifully, she adds. Theres the body of the play (with Anne and her family and others hiding in an attic in Amsterdam) and then bookends, the beginning and the end. They take place in 1947, after the war, when (Annes father) Otto Frank comes back to Amsterdam and looks in on that (hidden) apartment where they were living. In the first scene, he finds the diary and begins reading it. In the last scene, he finishes it. The body of the play, she adds, is the perception of a rather astute but still pubescent 13-year-old girl of what life was like at that time, and peoples personalities Theres a lot of humor, and theres always that sense of fear, as well, that they will all be caught. But you get a real sense of her strength as a human being and her delight in the world. Having the events expressed through the eyes of a child makes the material more poignant, Ms. Trossbach says. We all know its not going to end well. But for two hours we are laughing along with Anne, and fearing along with her, and falling in love for the first time, and developing a deeper relationship with her parents. She also chose the play because this year is the 70th anniversary of many things: Anne Franks death at age 15, the liberation of Auschwitz and BergenBelsen and the end of World War II. We also wanted to do it in April, which is an important month for the Jewish people, she says, referring to Passover. It seemed to be perfect timing. The play runs April 10-May 2. A sponsorship from the Meisenberg family is making it possible for area middle-school students to see it for free. Half of the opening night audience, Ms. Trossbach says, will be 14-year-olds. (The state of Florida mandates lessons about the Holocaust in middle school; for many, that means reading The Diary of Anne Frank in eighth grade.) The opening-night performance will be followed by a panel discussion among the director, cast and Florida Weekly writer Ella Nayor, the author of a book about tolerance; Sanibel artist Myra Roberts, who has created a series of paintings of Anne Frank; a Holocaust survivor; a liberator of the concentration camps; and a leader from the religious community.Young actress takes role seriouslyThe role of Anne Frank is typically played by someone 19 or 20 years old, but Ms. Trossbach has cast 13-year-old Cape Coral resident Kaycie Lee in the part. She is a very strong actor who is going places, she says. I am very lucky to have her. An eighth-grade student, Kaycie is being home schooled so she can have a more flexible schedule in order to be free to audition for TV and film roles. Shes very driven and inspired to do serious roles and tell messages like this, says her mother, Karen Maynard. She doesnt try out for a lot, but when she heard Laboratory Theater was doing this, she wanted to audition. Since getting the role, her daughters been reading Anne Franks diary every day all three versions, including the complete diary, which her mother describes as thick, like a Bible. Shes also watched three movies about Anne Frank and attended a talk by Holocaust survivors. Shes very into getting into the world of a character and finding similarities, Ms. Maynard says. Kaycie is the same age Anne Frank was when she went into hiding from the Nazis. And while Anne had a red-andwhite-checkered diary that was really an autograph album, Kaycie keeps a pink book with butter flies on it as her journal. You can see yourself in everybody, the young actress says. Theres a time when everybody breaks (down) and a time when everyone is super happy. As for the iconic teen shes portraying, I thought it was amazing how much she never complained about being in the attic and she was always so hopeful. And I admire her for that. I feel like shes very happy and optimistic and she just wants to have fun and act like shes normal. Shes trying to be a kid She feels there are so many beautiful things outside and you should be happy. But yet, she says, when the people laugh, they feel bad because they know theyre lucky for being safe and hidden. They feel guilty when they become upset with their confinement, because they know it could be so much worse. Her favorite part of the play is when they all learn the invasion of Normandy has occurred and they know freedom is coming to Nazi-occupied Netherlands. They dont believe it at first, she says, but then the adults are dancing together, even though sometimes they dont like each other. Its a nice, beautiful scene. Everybodys happy. Kaycie remembers when she first learned about the atrocity that was the Holocaust. At first I was disgusted, she says. I couldnt imagine that people could do that Its scary. You think maybe it could happen again, and people are in such denial about it. Ms. Trossbach, a native of Germany, moved to the Untied States in 1997. Some people perceive the Holocaust and (feel) Germany and the German people to be culpable. To them, thats black and white, she says. But I find it to be as with everything in life: Theres a lot of gray area. My family survived the war, and not well, and not in a pretty way or in an easy way. The story of my family is fascinating. But anyone who survives feels guilt for surviving, and their children and grandchildren feel guilt for surviving. Some of our ancestors ducked their heads, and the ones who spoke up had fingers pointed at them and were shot down. Theyre the ones in the spotlight, and for many people, thats an uncomfortable place to be. But, she says, those who spoke out made it possible for us to continue fighting for freedom. Were here, she says, rabble rousing and making a fuss about things, about equal rights and womens rights and gay rights and tolerance, because (they spoke up).

ARTS COMMENTARYIts true: The Liar is big-time funGods honest truth, The Liar is one of the best productions youll see all season. A lighthearted frolic, its fun, entertaining and silly, yet devilishly clever, too. Playwright David Ives, known for his wit, adapted and updated this 1644 French farce by Pierre Corneille. This means, although written in rhyming couplets of iambic pentameter, The Liar sports a very modern sensibility, including references to cell phones and texting. Its a marvelous marriage of old and new, linguistically and visually. Narcissistic Dorante (John Keabler) has just arrived in Paris. Though his father mistakenly claims, hes youthful/but hes truthful, it seems impossible for Dorante to tell the truth. He weaves fantastic stories of wars fought; wooing a woman with a flotilla of boats, a feast and fireworks; having lunch with the queen. His philosophy seems to be: Why tell the truth when its so much more fun to spin a tall tale? When Dorante runs into Cliton (Scott Aiello), he hires him on the spot as his servant and valet. The somewhat gullible Cliton immediately confesses that he possesses a tragic flaw: I cannot tell a lie. (Ironically, Clitons honesty gets him into trouble, while Dorantes lies save him time and time again.) So the hero (or villain take your pick), who cannot tell the truth, and his servant, who cannot tell a lie, make their way through the city. They meet Clarice (Alexis Hyatt) and Lucrece (Kate Villanova), best friends. Dorante falls in love with Clarice, thinking her name is Lucrece. Clarice is secretly engaged to Alcippe (Maboud Ebrahimzadeh). Meanwhile, Dorantes father, Geronte (Dan Kremer), wants to marry him off to a Clarice, but Dorante thinks Lucrece is Clarice and vice versa. So he makes up a story about already having married someone else in another city. Confused yet? To make matters worse, the two friends with the similar-sounding names each have a maid identical twin sisters Isabelle and Sabine (both skillfully and delightfully played by Kate Siepert). They, of course, also are mistaken for each other. But their personalities couldnt be more opposite: Saucy Isabelle flirts with Cliton, while severely dour Sabine upbraids him and slaps his face. Add a friend of Alcippes Philiste (Seth Andrew Bridges), a foppish dandy with a secret longing for Sabine and her dominatrix manner and you have the makings of a 17th century soap opera. Dorante schools his honest servant in the ways of lying, telling him that memory is the keystone of a liar, yet he himself has a poor memory and has trouble keeping all his lies straight. To reflect the blend of old and new dialogue, director Cody Nickell has dressed his cast in a late 0s glam rock style. Costume designer Tony Johnsons creations are an orgy of fabrics: lace, velvet, black leather and brocade with buckles, sequins, bows and straps. Dorante has a Rod Stewart-esque haircut and a yellow lace muscle shirt. Alcippe looks like Freddy Mercury with heavy-metal black curls that reach his shoulders. He strides about in thighhigh patent-leather platform boots with 6-inch heels and so many buckles it seems as if putting them on would take all day. (In fact, there are so many pairs of sexy black leather boots in this play that it must be a sly nod to the playwrights S/M-themed Tony-nominated play Venus in Fur, which played at Gulfshore Playhouse early last season.) The set by David Arsenault, with lighting by David Upton and Eric Furbish, is a red-curtained stage, bookended by two doors and candle sconces lining the walls. Once the curtains open, the minimal scenery of trees and houses is obviously fake, and the props benches, a garden gate are pushed onand off-stage by the actors, who often make eye contact with the audience while doing so. Mr. Nickell has even managed to make this part of theater housekeeping amusing and entertaining. This is a play; we know its a play and you know its a play, they seem to be saying. If you look closely, even the houses in the background echo the costumes, with lines of buckle-like marks, zig-zags reminiscent of the lace ties of a corset and the cross-hatched lines of fishnet stockings. This is one of those magical plays where everyone involved, onstage and offstage, is superlative and everything they do comes together perfectly. Kudos to Mr. Nickell, who gets the right tone of craziness and off-kilter humor from his very talented cast. Ms. Hyatt brings a burst of flirtatious girlish energy to her role, while Mr. Aiello is the perfect foil for the swashbuckling Mr. Keabler. (I especially loved his physical humor when hes learning how to lie.) Ms. Siepert, as the twin maids, creates two very different and distinct personalities, providing some of the evenings biggest laughs. Though were warned in the beginning of the play not to take it seriously, that its just a frivolity, a light delight, I cant help but see parallels in it to the art of theater: the ability to spin a fantastic tale and have people believe you, the skill of improvisation, the gift of making up imaginary people, places, events. There is no more involuntary honest response than genuine laughter, and it came in never-ending waves on opening night. It might be a sin to tell a lie, but what great fun to hear multitudes of them all night long from this team of masters. m s S s s nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Liar>> When: Through April 26 >> Where: Gulfshore Playhouse at The Norris Center, Naples >> Cost: Tickets start at $40 >> Info: (866) 811-4111 or gulfshoreplayhouse.org PEDRO ZEPEDA / COURTESY PHOTOSKate Siepert, Alexis Hyatt and Kate Villanova in dress rehearsal for The Liar.

The storys a bit convoluted, but who cares? The action is fast and fun, making this a pure adrenaline rush. Rated PG-13.Woman in Gold (Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl) A Holocaust survivor (Ms. Mirren) asks an unproven lawyer (Mr. Reynolds) to help retrieve a painting she believes belongs to her; years ago it was seized by the Nazis, and it is now in the possession of the Austrian government. The main storyline of the quest for the painting is a fascinating watch, but flashbacks to Holocaust Austria are a bore. Rated PG-13.Get Hard (Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie) Millionaire financial manager James King (Mr. Ferrell) has 30 days to learn how to survive in prison from Darnell (Mr. Hart). Mr. Ferrell and Mr. Hart lack chemistry, and the story is as predictable as they come. Rated R.Home (Voices of Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez) Alien Oh (Mr. Parson) comes to Earth and clumsily helps a girl (Rihanna) find her displaced mother (Ms. Lopez). Theres nothing special about the animation, its not all that funny and theres not much here for adults.

This live action, non-musical reimagining of the classic fairy tale is pure and sweet as can be, which is good for the little girls of the target demo but a bore for adults wanting a little bit of edge.

NoWhile Were Young centers on middle-aged married couple Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts), both unfulfilled in their own way but ostensibly happy together. She tried to have a baby and couldnt. Hes a failed documentary filmmaker living in his fatherin-laws (Charles Grodin) shadow. Theyre both at that age (mid40s) when the things that dont happen until youre old start to happen. They have their freedom, but dont take advantage of it. They probably secretly resent one another for their unhappiness. This is a marriage in a funk. Enter aspiring filmmaker Jamie (Adam Driver) and his wife Darby (Amanda Seyfried), who makes ice cream. Theyre both 25 and ironically retro, preferring VHS tapes, typewriters and other old-school accouterments to their modern counterparts. They think it makes them more free and in the moment. In reality, however, its artsy-pretentious hippie nonsense done in a desperate attempt to tell the world theyre bohemian. In one scene Jamie says hes pathologically happy, which is damn convenient when youre delusional about the real world around you. Jamie also wears a fedora, which automatically qualifies him as a douchebag. The problem with Jamie being this obnoxious, sure of himself and unlikable is that we need to believe Josh would be enamored enough with Jamie for them to become best friends, because thats what happens. Sure, Jamie provides Josh a different way of looking at the world, but the man crush Josh develops feels forced rather than organic. For this to work, more of Joshs discontentedness needs to be presented earlier so we can understand why he would see Jamie as a conduit to happiness. Of course the relationship evolves, things change and some people arent what they seem. This is all fine and welcome, as it leads to a better final third than what the first two-thirds lead us to expect. But its too little too late and worse, whatever it is writer/director Noah Baumbach (Greenberg) is trying to say about traditional versus modern values, he doesnt say it with conviction. He tackles issues of credibility, friendship, insecurity, selfishness and more in a way thats deliberately philosophical rather than practical, meaning he essentially throws it out there Here it is! without bothering to comment on it as positive or negative. And you know what? Thats weak. If hes going to use a safe route in the oldversus-new debate, then he should be critical of both sides. That way, all the flaws are exposed and people can judge for themselves. Because the truth is this: Where viewers are in their own lives will determine which the couple in the film they relate to the most, which by extension might reflect the value system they agree with. So if Mr. Baumbach were evenly critical of both sides, he wouldnt offend potential viewers of any age. The film is designed to get the viewer to look inward in an attempt to define oneself in this crazy world of ours, but this is key: Many wont bother, because they havent been sufficiently prompted to do so. This is like telling someone to have deep thoughts without providing them anything to inspire those thoughts. While Were Young could and should have done more with its subject matter by being sharper and more unkind to our social woes. Playing it safe didnt do the characters or the film any favors. >> Jesse Eisenberg, James Franco and Cate Blanchett were all attached to the project at one point, but they all dropped out. n u a t w c dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com Hair Safari Haircuts from $15 Color/Perms from $40 Highlights from $60 Hot Towel Shaves $10 Waxing Available Barber on Staff LUXURY LOOKS at Affordable Prices Berkshire Commons7223 Radio Road Naples, Florida 34104Se Habla EspanolVISIT US AT 239.348.2887APPOINTMENTS WALK INS WELCOME
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C16 FLORIDA WRITERSSet in Southwest Florida, Harry Brock Mystery rises above the crowd An Anecdotal Death by Kinley Roby. Five Star Publishing. 310 pages. Hardcover, $25.95. The 10th Harry Brock Mystery finds the game wardenturned-detective continuing to ply his trade in and near the Southwest Florida town of Avola. The place names Tequesta County and Avola allow author Kinley Roby some imaginative space; many readers will quickly identify the settings originals as Collier County and Naples. More important than this identification is Mr. Robys worshipful perspective on the natural beauty and vulnerability of a patch of Florida wilderness that seems to be receding as the burgeoning town advances. Harry Brock works in both worlds, but he makes his home in a remote, simple dwelling on the edge of the Everglades. The beautiful and wealthy Meredith Winters has summoned Harry to discover whether her missing husband, Amos Lansbury, is alive or dead. While the Coast Guard had rendered the verdict that Lansbury died in a diving accident during a fishing expedition with several friends, no corpse has been discovered. Meredith has a feeling that Amos was murdered. Touching base with his friends in the sheriffs department, Harry worries about their reluctance to open an investigation. It soon becomes clear that political concerns are at work. When two more of Lansburys diving buddies turn up dead, its hard to call the pattern a mere coincidence, especially since the common dominator seems to be that all worked in a very rough political campaign for a seat in the state senate. When a fourth campaign worker, not part of the diving activity, is found dead, the question becomes: Who suffered so mightily from the o utcome of the senate race that he (or she) has a serial score to settle? Soon enough, Harry is nearly a victim, suggesting that the killer finds him too close to figuring things out. As the investigation moves along, Harrys personal life becomes just as much a center of interest as his professional one. In the course of the investigation, hes meeting many divorced and widowed women connected with the victims in one way or another. The author goes a bit overboard in describing each one, as well as Meredith and her secretary, as a surprisingly beautiful specimen of femininity. Or is that perception only Harrys, a consequence of his own situation, appetites and tendency to idealize? Harrys two failed marriages, and his impasse with his present love, have left him lonely and longing. Meredith throws herself at him, and there is plenty of flirtation in his sequence of investigatory interviews. Hey, whatever Harrys got, I want some. His emotional state is also colored by the growing fragility of his best friend and mentor, Tucker Labeau, whose residence on Bartrams Hammock, a state nature preserve, is near Harrys. The winding waterway named Puc Puggy Creek is for Harry something like Thoreaus Walden Pond and its surrounding woods: a place to get back to basics. The profound friendship between the two men is based in part on their deep mutual respect for the natural world and a desire for self-reliance. Mr. Robys description of the sequence of days Harry and Tucker spend building a home for the bantam roosters Tucker plans to raise, the detailed preparation and execution, is an unexpected attraction, a narrative meditation on true friendship. Their conversations are marvelously constructed. In fact, convincing, revealing dialogue is a major strength throughout the Harry Brock Mystery series. Whether his protagonist is engaging with clients, law enforcement personnel or women of romantic interest, the author finds all the right notes of authenticity and characterization while moving the story forward. Of course, the many interviews Harry conducts in the course of the investigation are also finely crafted. Readers will admire his effective technique as he elicits significant information. In ways that I have suggested, Mr. Robys work is at once strong genre fiction with many expected ingredients and highly original literary fiction, with unexpected mastery of craft, penetrating insights and a richly nuanced worldview. In its handling of character, time and place, An Anecdotal Death rises above the crowd, reaching the heights of far more well-known authors such as James W. Hall. If you havent already discovered Kinley Roby, you should. And then thank me.

Having been taken with the movements fantastical approach to art, he wrangled other professional musicians in Southwest Florida to form a band of symphonic instruments that specializes in modern interpretations of period sounds. Steampunk Stompers, left to right: Mark Pettey, David Pruyn, Kirstin Trembley, Adren Hance and Bob Leary. concert would be the ideal thing to draw a younger crowd to the park. Its a perfect fit that the building is Victorian, Ms. Aleba says. It will be bring in youth, and with costumes and music, it will be a gas. The parks art hall, built in 1905 specifically for artistic performances, houses a fully restored 1885 Steinway piano, which the Steampunk Stompers will utilize. In addition to the music, concertgoers will be able to listen to a reading by local steampunk author M.B. Weston and watch a dance performance by Inara. Steampunk Stompers was borne as a creative outlet for a group of local musicians. Being able to performing professionally is a blessing, Mr Pettey says, but he and his fellow band members typically play other peoples music. For example, he played with The Temptations and The Four Tops when they performed at ArtisNaples earlier this month. After performing as a soloist at a steampunk event in Indiana last year, he decided steampunk offered him and other professional musicians an opportunity to create their own brand of music. Its really fun to play Broadway shows, but were playing other peoples music, he says. Florida being what it is with arts, theres not a lot of room for creativity. Its a lot of tribute acts for bands from the boomer era. We wanted to do something that was totally off the wall. Unlike other steampunk bands hes come across, he says, Steampunk Stompers veers closer to historical accuracy because none of their instruments require electricity. The bands instrumentation consists of a trumpet, sousaphone, percussion, banjo and a variety of add-ins including a ukulele, a trombone and a steamordian, while most other bands of the genre have a more rock bent and rely on electric guitars and a more modern taste, he adds. Were much more organic. We dont require electricity to pull off our shows, he says, although the Steampunk Stompers can hook up to amplifiers. We can even amplify the tuba. We definitely put our own spin on it and even go as modern at the theme from Dr. Who. Ms. Weston will read from her short story, The Survivor, that was published in the steampunk anthology, Dreams of Steam: Gadgets. I wasnt really sure if steampunk was something I could write about or really get into until someone told me to think of Sherlock Holmes, but with science fiction, the author says, adding, The Victorian era contains some of the more modern fairy tales and myths that many of us grew up on, from Oliver Twist to A Christmas Carol. The era still has a bit of magic in it, even though it is the beginning of the industrial age. The ability to improvise alongside a theme is part of the appeal of the evening for dancer Inara, who specializes in belly dancing. Although steampunk is not one of my usual dance styles, I enjoy being creative and working on fusions, she says. I love the freedom that comes with a fantasy theme. Although steampunk has a strong historical influence, at its core its a fantasy concept. Everyone is relatively free to interpret the theme with their own style and creativity. Inara wont create a new routine for the evening at Koreshan, but will instead improvise her performance in front of the audience to a gypsy-themed number played by Steampunk Stompers.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC20 WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 KOVEL: ANTIQUESMind the difference between clockwork and windup toys BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELTin toys, especially those that picture everyday life, are popular with todays collectors. Political, social, womens work, and other themes inspired toy makers. Many early toys were made of very thin tin that was painted in bright colors. Some of the toys moved when wound and had either a clockwork or a key wind mechanism. Toy collectors are careful to use the proper word clockwork or windup. Clockwork toys have gears and parts like those used on a clock. In 1862, a cheaper type of power for moving toys was developed that used a spring, which was wound with a key or crank. Some still were being made as late as 1920. By the end of World War II, plastic parts were used for toys and the earlier metal wind-up was out of production. Battery-operated toys were made in Japan after 1946 and today there are electronic toys. All of these toys are popular with collectors and price is determined by condition, rarity and the appeal of the design. Toys that move or make noise always attract buyers. Q: I have a gold ring that belonged to my grandfather and perhaps his father. Its engraved with initials on a flat section on the front. The sides of the ring band are decorated with a geometric pattern. Inside is a small mark, the capital letters OB in a rectangle with clipped corners. Can you tell me who made it? A: OB stands for Ostby & Barton Co. a jewelry firm that worked from 1880 to the 1950s. Englehart C. Ostby was born in Norway, moved to the United States, and by 1879, had joined with Nathan B. Barton to form a jewelry company. The firm was so successful they became the countrys largest jewelry manufacturer and the largest ring makers in the world. In 1912, Ostbys, Barton and his 22-year-old daughter Helen went on This toy, probably made in France, shows a 6-inch-high 19th-century fruit vendor. A clockwork mechanism makes the womans legs walk. The rarity of the toy and its almost perfect paint encouraged a bidder to buy it for $339 in September 2014 at a Bertoia auction in Vineland, N.J.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 C21 4/30/15 4/30/15a trip to Europe to vacation and to buy precious stones for the company. They changed their vacation plans, deciding to return on the RMS Titanic with friends. When the Titanic hit the iceberg, the Ostbys both went from their staterooms to the lifeboats and waited to leave. Barton went back for a coat and missed a lifeboat; he drowned and his body was later found, identified, and buried near his home. Bartons daughter, who had to leave the Titanic without him, was rescued, and she continued working with her brother at Ostby & Barton. Collectors search for pieces of O & B jewelry partly because of Nathans newsworthy death and partly because of the quality of the jewelry. Price depends on the value of the stones, the gold and the design. Most jewelry offered online is priced from $125 to $350, with some prices as high as $3,500. Q: I have the chance to buy an old Sligh dresser from a family member. Its made of walnut, 54 inches wide, has columns on the sides, a burled oval on the front, and 2 large and 2 small drawers. Can you tell me if it is an antique? What would be a fair price to offer? A: Charles R. Sligh founded the Sligh Furniture in 1880 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, after working for Berkey & Gay as a furniture finisher and travelling salesman. By the 1920s, Sligh advertised itself as the largest manufacturer of furniture exclusively for the bedroom in the world. From 1910 through the 1920s, the company offered more than 80 bedroom suites and 11 dining room suites in a wide range of styles, including Sheraton, Louis XVI, Jacobean, Italian Renaissance, and more. Some had a painted finish or painted decoration. Sligh closed in 1932. Your dresser probably is a retro piece made in an older style. A fair price to offer would be $150 to $200. Q: I have a figural bottle opener that my grandparents had for many years. Im 80 years old, so it must be quite old. Its shaped like a womans face. She has red hair, four blue eyes and big lips open in a smile. Her upper teeth can be used to pull the cap off a bottle. There are holes in her ears so you can nail or screw the opener to the wall. I think there are three more with different faces. Should I keep looking for them in antiques shops or just give up? A: The best place to find four-eyed bottle openers is at a flea market or online. They are not as old as you think. Four-eyed bottle openers like this were made by Wilton Products, a company in business in Wrightsville, Pennsylv ania, from about 1935 to 1989. The company decorated cast iron bottle openers, banks, trivets and other novelty items made by Susquehanna Castings, a company operated by the Wilton family, beginning in 1892. Several different versions of the foureyed bottle opener were made in at least four shapes, including the woman, a bald man with handlebar mustache, a bald man with a bushy mustache, and a man with hair and mustache. They were hand painted and can be found in different colors. One source says Seeing double he is a warning against overindulgence in alcohol. Reproductions have been made. Tip: Dont hang an oil painting above a fireplace that is used frequently. Smoke will damage the paint. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Do you know if it will be back for a second season? Geena F. in West VirginiaA: ABC will announce May 14 which series will be coming back, as well as the new series that will debut this fall. I spoke with Cristela co-star Maria CanalsBarerra recently, and she is keeping a positive outlook regarding the future of her show. Theres a lot of thoughtful storytelling on Cristela, and I feel really good about it based on how I feel about the episodes, the writing and the fact that the ratings have been decent. Im very optimistic. Just because Im in it doesnt mean Ive been blinded to it. I really do think I have some perspective because Ive been in the business so long. As season one comes to an end, lets hope we get a second season, because Maria promises we wont be disappointed: There are going to be a lot of different dynamics to set up season two. I told the writers: You guys are so good. The way you set up season two, everyone is going to be like, I cant wait to watch it. Q: Awhile back you wrote that The Mortal Instruments was going to become a TV series, but Ive seen nothing about that since. Is it still happening? Ellie R., via emailA: Back when I reported that, everything was still in the beginning stages of development, so there werent a whole lot of details. Finally, I can say with certainty that The Mortal Instruments book series will indeed be reimagined on the small screen as Shadowhunters. For those unfamiliar with the book series, Shadowhunters centers on Clary Fray, who finds out on her 18th birthday that she comes from a long line of human/ angel hybrids who hunt down and kill demons. ABC Family will air the 13-episode first season, with shooting expected to commence in May. There is no casting or premiere date news yet, but just knowing that showrunner and executive producer Ed Decter (Helix, Unforgettable, The Client List) is heading up the project makes me feel confident that the TV series will fare better than the not-so-great 2013 feature film. Readers: The folks at Fox have been teasing for months, even years, about the possible re-exploration of The X-Files. I am thrilled to report that it is official: The X-Files will return to Fox as a sixepisode event series. Series creator, executive producer and head writer Chris Carter is on board, as are series stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Mitch Pileggi will return as Skinner, as well as Annabeth Gish and Robert Patrick as Reyes and Doggett, respectively. Production begins this summer, with the series likely airing in 2016.

While everyone else in town was doggedly dining and serving, these professionals gained national recognition for their culinary accomplishments. First, locally made treats Kristis Key Lime Cookies, produced by Be Happy Cakes, were chosen to be included in swag bags at The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences 42nd Daytime Emmy Awards on April 24. Its the second time the treats have been part of the reward for award nominees. They were also included in gift bags at the 33rd annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards in 2012. Our cookies are a flavorful reflection of the Southwest Florida lifestyle, says Be Happy Cakes owner Kim Casciero. We are thrilled to once again be a part of the Emmy Awards celebrations. The cookies, consisting of a vanilla cake-like base topped with key lime icing, can be found at local shops and markets. Second, local pastry chef John Cook captured second place in the 26th annual U.S. Pastry Competition in New York City. One of 13 finalists, Chef Cook clinched his spot with a vertical piece that incorporated milk chocolate almond mousse, raspberry gelee, chocolate sponge cake and almond crme and crunch on top of almond streusel. His other entries were an ornate chocolate high heel shoe, a functioning chocolate jewelry box and a sculpted sugar flower. It was an incredibly talented group of competition, he says. I was honored to be among them. To win second place is really gratifying. It was worth all the long hours and experimentation. Chef Cook has been employed at Norman Love Confections since 2006 and currently specializes in pastries.

But better to Forrest Gump your way into a healthy lunch than not have one at all, right? After having indulged in a slightly debauched Easter Sunday meal of mimosas, refined carbohydrates and sugar, I decided that what I really needed was some protein. Luckily, Fit & Fuel has a daily quiche that offers the extraordinarily simple benefits of eggs without the counteracting effects of hollandaise. That days quiche selection was sundried tomato topped with either cheddar or provolone (I chose cheddar), accompanied by a fruit bowl of pineapple, melon and grapes. It was exactly what I needed and I felt pleasantly satiated and restored when I finished. One more thing: The caf is affiliated with Naples Cyclery next door, and while you can have a simple and tasty meal at the front, the back of the restaurant houses a fitting studio for cyclists.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC34 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 9-15, 2015 Your Wine Concierge Retailer Shoppes at Vanderbilt2367 Vanderbilt Beach Road Suite #810, Naples, FL 34109239.513.0095 napleswinecollection.com special orders VINOAre there bargains in Bordeaux?For the past 10 years or so, the prices for the higher-level wines from Bordeaux have shot into the stratosphere. A wine like the famous Lafite Rothschild used to cost around $220 on release. Today its upwards of a grand. A lot of the price ridiculousness is the result of increasing prosperity in other areas of the world, especially China. There are tons of new millionaires who want only the best and dont care how much it costs. That puts you and me pretty well out of the market. But, as your faithful wine counselor, Im always on the lookout for wines that still offer the classic Bordeaux experience but wont cost as much as a mortgage payment. Of course, Ive had to sample dozens and dozens of wines to accomplish this, but you know what they say about dirty jobs. First, lets review some basics. The red wines of Bordeaux are actually blends of up to five different grapes: cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot, cabernet franc and malbec. The tradition of blending these grapes together goes back hundreds of years. Depending on where in the region the winemaker is located, either Cabernet sauvignon or merlot will dominate the blend. That makes a difference, and well see why in a minute. Second, the chateaux (wine estates) in this area are classified in a bunch of different ways. The most famous is the classification done by the French government in 1855 that divided 61 estates into five categories, known as crus, or growths. First growth, second growth, and so on. This classification has been revised only once since it was devised. Most of the wines from these classified growth producers will tend to be a bit on the pricey side. So the trick is to look for classifications that may be a bit less well known, but still have the earthy, sumptuous, elegant character we expect from this regions wines. One classification thats been getting my attention is called cru bourgeois. All the producers are located in the Medoc, in eight appellations on the left bank of the Gironde River, which divides the Bordeaux region about in half. The classification cru bourgeois has been revised several times, and today lists 243 wines, so there are a lot of choices and variety. The producers themselves have formed a kind of trade association or alliance with a new logo and everything, to promote the specific classification, and their wines, in the world market. They formed an independent committee to conduct the assessment of the wines, and to make sure production standards are met. Then, winemakers submitted their bottles to a blind tasting panel for final evaluation. The other interesting aspect about this designation is that winemakers must submit their wines to the panel each year to be judged for quality, and they either make the cut or they dont. So, unlike the 1855 classification, no winery is permanently on the list. Today we have a fairly sizable selection of wines that offer the soughtafter Bordeaux character, that go well with lamb, grilled meats and traditional French dishes, and dont cost an upper and lower extremity. Ive been sampling these widely with my wine geek friends, and weve found some examples that are worth a try. Or t wo. The prices shown are approximate. Tour St. Joseph Haut Medoc 2010 Aged in new oak barrels, this is a blend of 50 percent merlot, 45 percent cabernet sauvignon and 5 percent cabernet franc. Generally, a higher level of merlot makes the wine more approachable sooner, and thats the case with the example and the others as well. Semi-translucent in the glass, there are lush aromas of dark fruit, earth, vanilla and smoke. $25 Chateau Magnol Haut Medoc 2012 Medium translucent red color, vanilla on the nose mixing with light fruit flavors on the palate. Good balance and medium finish. Blend is 48 percent merlot, 40 percent cabernet sauvignon, and 12 percent cabernet franc. $25 Chateau Donissan Haut Medoc 2010 Characteristic Bordeaux flavor profile of black fruit and earth, a firm structure and long finish. Id give this one a little time at the bottom of the closet. $25 s b w i d jerry GREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com See all AGAVE events here:ursday, April 9, 7-10 p.m. Tessa & Jae Friday, April 10, 7-10 p.m. Sarah Hadeka Saturday, April 11, 7-11 p.m. Gypsy Native Sunday, April 12, 5-8 p.m. Alaska Mike Tuesday, April 14, 5-7 p.m. Tasting Tuesday Mix & Mingle Tuesday, April 14, 6-9 p.m. Bill Colletti Wednesday, April 15, 6-9 p.m. Paul Allodi ursday, April 16, 7-10 p.m. David Barber
CHEF PROFILEVegan chef proudly shares her passion for real foodQ: How long have you been a vegan, and what prompted you to adopt this way of eating? A: I have been a vegan for nearly 10 years and was a vegetarian for 10 years prior to that. Initially, the switch to veganism came when my husband and I were getting life insurance policies and his cholesterol reading came back in the high 200s. It was pretty obvious that it was the dairy in our diet that needed to be kept in check, so we made the switch together. Over the years, though, you find out all these other things going on in the world that make you proud to be a vegan, like the terrible impact of factory farming on the Earth and animals. Q: Can you explain your philosophy about food and cooking? A: I see food as a way to get nutrients into your body so that you can thrive and take on the world. A lot of things we eat really offer nothing to aid our bodies, so when I cook I focus on real foods that maximize the amount of nutrients in a dish. Every time we eat, our choices make an impact on our bodies, our communities and our planet. I use organic ingredients and make everything from scratch in order to know exactly what goes into the food. In season I source primarily local ingredients from our local organic farmers, and out of season I use ingredients with the smallest footprints. As a vegan chef, I try to make food approachable to everyone, so I use foods that people dont have to stretch too far to recognize but that still offer the most benefits while also being delicious. Basically, I have really high standards for what goes into my body and those of the people I feed. Q: Are there particular dishes that clients seem to like most? A: I make a wide variety of foods that I customize to each individual client. My baked goods and cakes are ordered most frequently, with my salad dressings and casserole-type dishes a close second. Some of the most popular dishes are my garden lasagna, chickpea crabby cakes with remoulade, spinach pockets with tzatziki dip, chocolate cake balls, tropical granola, sprouted fig bars and Neapolitan cake. Q: Where are your foods available? A: Just from me at the moment. You can find them online at madebyambrosia.com and on Facebook at Ambrosia Organic Kitchen. Q: If someone is considering becoming a vegan, can you offer some advice on making the transition? A: I think the most important thing that people need to remember when starting a vegan diet is that it is not about the things you can no longer have but a celebration of all the things you can have. Dont put so much pressure on yourself. It can be a drastic switch to become vegan, and it is OK just to start with one day a week eating like a vegan, to make the switch gradually. It is hard not to notice the benefits to the way you feel and look as you incorporate more plant-based foods into your diet. Q: What motivated you to write a cookbook, and where can people order it? A: I wanted to share some of my most loved recipes with anyone interested in trying their hand in the vegan kitchen. My recipes are tested and simple to pull together, so even novice chefs can have success. It is a great tool for people interested in incorporating a few vegan items into their routines or to cook for family and friends who eat a plant-based diet. The Ambrosia Kitchen Cookbook is available through Amazon or locally at Food and Thought, 2132 Tamiami Trail, or at Neighborhood Organics, 2359 Vanderbilt Beach Road.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com APRIL 2015 LUXE LIVING 3 By KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentFor Robert and Carole Leher, curiosity led to creative expression. The Naples couple spent years wondering who lives along the citys most luxurious shores, and what its like to live that way. The diverse houses along Gulf Shore Boulevard and Gordon Drive range from the modest single-story cottages built decades ago to the modern multi-story mansions that tower high above the sand, Mr. Leher says. These singlefamily residences all have one thing in common, and thats that each looks out over the beach to the sparkling Gulf of Mexico, and each property has a story to tell. The Lehers are telling those stories in Naples Beach Homes: Cottage, Castles and the Families that Built Them, a book they authored and recently published. To coincide with the release of the book, the couple presented a recent talk about the neighborhoods of downtown Naples at the Historic Palm Cottage. We had just received copies of the book from the printer two days before they were scheduled to give the talks, Mr. Leher says. The reception has just been absolutely remarkable, and we are almost sold out of our printing, so we have to go back now and do a second printing after only having the book out for nine days. Besides individuals buying Naples Beach Homes, four major local real estate firms will be using it as part of their closings. On their journey to write the book, Nosy Naples authors collect neighborly beach-mansion storiesSEE AUTHORS, 4 The authors used an assortment of vintage photographs and newer ones by various photographers.COURTESY PHOTOSRobert and Carole Leher on the beach near the Naples Pier. www.LightingFirst.usNaples 239.775.5100, 4600 Tamiami Tr.

4 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYthe Lehers met several people, and one homeowners desire to participate led to another, and before long, homeowners were calling them to tell their own stories. There are just a limited number of these homes, and families have come from all over the world, he says. All are hoping to own one of these special houses on a beach that spans some four and a half miles from the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club on the north to Gordon Pass on the south. Some of the stories go back to how a homeowners grandfather came to Naples; others are love stories, we design or architectural stories. Photos in the book range from vintage to current photography by the Lehers, professional photographers and homeowners, combined with original artwork by Naples artist Paul Arsenault. It took the Lehers three years to produce the book. The book is about people on the beach now and in the past, and a typical chapter covers a home that began in 1939 with a cistern on the roof to collect rainwater. That house was torn down, and in the 1980s, the lot had a contemporary house on the site, and then the property went from a cottage to a castle, Mr. Leher says. Interlaced within the pages are tales about the families and the history of the houses and what brought the people to Naples. Naples Beach Homes: Cottage, Castles and the Families that Built Them is available online at napleshistoricalsociety.org and is also at Historic Palm Cottage, Aldecor Custom Framing, the Arsenault Gallery, the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, BRuno, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Mels Diner, the Naples Area Board of Realtors, the Naples Art Association, Naples Botanical Garden, Ooh La La!, Paper Merchant, Regatta, Torys Hair Salon and Traditions. The book is $65 plus tax, with net profits going to the Naples Historical Society at Historic Palm Cottage.

6 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen LUXE selected Pamela Durkin for the Designer Q&A hot seat in 2014, she revealed a secret: Shes a designer who loves a makeover. Combine her design philosophy of surrounding yourself with what you love and never backing away from a challenge, and voila! makeover magic. Mrs. Durkin took on the makeover of a beachfront condominium that felt trapped in another era. Purchased by a professional couple, the condo contained a beleaguered kitchen that conjured claustrophobia, marred by dated finishes and inferior-quality wood floors along with several other kinds of flooring. They wanted to create a more modern, clean-lined oasis where they could come home, relax and entertain, Mrs. Durkin says. Opening a space up to create an open-plan concept is always a winner when it comes to renovating. Mrs. Durkin removed the wood floors and replaced them with 24-inch stone tiles. Using a single material helped make the space appear much bigger than it is. In the kitchen, she installed Italian cabinetry and updated appliances, which included an induction cooktop, convection microwave and oven, warming drawer and the quietest dishwasher available. Two different wine coolers one for red and one for white were in line with the homeowners decision to use every available spare inch to create storage and maintain that open feel. We created special memory points, including an art installation of bronze divers in a very small entry in a nod to the beach. Plus the beautiful marble used in the kitchen reminded me of the waves while the mosaic used on the backsplash of the bar looks like a piece of art, says Mrs. Durkin, who used cut abalone shell tile at the tub, and granite with a waterfall edge in the master to create a spa feel. Faux leather wall covering and a leathered stone top in the powder room made this a jewel of a space for guests. A makeover to achieve clean lines is challenging, according to Mrs. Durkin, because such design lacks easy hiding places, such as moldings. She says she had to be on site and in constant contact with the cabinet installers to ensure the installation was just right. Her favorite element is the television wall. Of course, the man of the house wanted the biggest one possible, 80 inches, and since I did not want it to be a focal point of the room, I surrounded it with a dark, chevron wood wall covering, and each side is flanked with a textural white wall covering and sconces, she says. A cool 8-inch-thick stone top and low profile cabinets anchor the whole piece, so its a showstopper. Possibly the biggest challenge she faced were floors that werent properly leveled. This is why Mrs. Durkins top tip for a successful makeover is to have quality installers every time.

Furniture family on the move BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen people call Agostinos Fine Furnishings, they are often surprised to hear Agostino Gus Sciacqua himself answer the telephone. But once they get to know him, they understand why. This natural retailer has never really met a stranger. He loves nothing more than to greet his guests, help customers and provide the kind of service he grew up with. Agostino and his son David Sciacqua own and operate Agostinos here in Naples, where the senior Mr. Sciacqua has been for decades. The leader of this Italian family retired and left Chicago after being an executive, but like so many of Naples leading men, he couldnt stomach sitting around. I had to start another business, and I thought getting into the import business would be fantastic because I love the beauty of furniture and art, so that really interested me, he says. I came down here to Naples and the business just grew. Then we moved and added two other locations and have now consolidated.The benefits of the new operation, which recently relocated to North Naples just north of Immokalee Road, are that customers get to see almost everything Agostinos has. In the old location, mountains of furnishings remained hidden in storage until space could be cleared for new displays. We are going to Europe next month, and we are importing a lot of great products as the dollar is strong over there, Mr. Sciacqua says. We will be able to find unique things that are years ahead of the trends in the states right now. Going to the shows over there, all of the young people are ahead of the trend, and you just know in four or five years what they are showing now will be in the U.S. Agostinos has four interior designers working however clients specify, whether thats transitional, contemporary or traditional. Art is a big part of Mr. Agostinos passion for fine furnishings. The artwork is reasonably priced by Naples standards, with a selection of contemporary and classic in addition to the work of different local artists. Its not unusual to see transitional pieces next to contemporary pieces. Ive always loved art, and we are very selective in terms of what we select from Europe, plus we dont go into acrylic we stick strictly to oil paintings, he points out. Our designers will often take paintings to homes to see if they will work in the spaces, but whats even more exciting is that we also have a program where we take clients with us to Europe, especially if they are building a home. After careful measurement of floor plans to best know where pieces will fit, some of Agostinos clients enjoy going to Europe to help select the pieces they want. The clients love that because its not only getting to select the furniture, but its also a fantastic vacation for them because I take them to communities and villages where the craftsmen are, he says. They would never find these places on their own, and they get to talk to the craftsmen, so its very special. Normally, the destinations are in Italy because that is the country with which Mr. Sciacqua is most familiar. He speaks fluent Italian. I also go to France and Spain, but Italy, I know like the back of my hand, says the man whose parents came from Luca, near Florence. Surprises in storeIn the store, customers find large pieces such as a massive, 72-inch round table with a Lazy Susan in the middle. Kidney desks, which are perfect for small spaces, are placed between unique chairs and shelves, alongside executive desks and contemporary lamps. No two pieces of furniture seem alike here, and each little area is its own vignette. For example, adjacent to a charming country French table and chairs, a contemporary setting with Art Deco buffet table, lamps and artwork shows how to achieve a retro look in a small space. Across the room, a massive bed is fit for a kingly space in Father and son Agostino, seated, and David Sciacqua in their design library. 8 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSHOP TALKAgostinos Fine Furnishings folks now befriending customers in North Naples A broad view of the new showroom shows an eclectic blend of fine furnishings and accessories at Agostinos.

Our designers work with everyone and they spend a lot of time with customers, who often dont know exactly what they want or know how to coordinate colors, which is something our designers do very well, Mr. Sciacqua says. We match customers with the right designers, and we have clients that come back to us house after house because people feel at home here. His son David, whom he calls a gogetter, was in marketing before he got into the business. The younger Sciacqua is in charge of a separate entity attached to the family business called Interiors by Agostinos. David Sciacqua manages the interior design program. Interiors by Agostinos is a full-service interior design company working from small to big projects, and we help from the moment a homeowner gets an architect or buys a home, says the younger Sciacqua. We do everything, not just furniture. Customers can make an appointment for a designer to see the homeowners space. The designers ask questions and get ideas of what the client wants. Our job is to enhance their ideas and make their space their home, David Sciacqua says. We meet them on site at their location to find out their initial needs and what they like, but they also oftentimes come to the shop to find fabrics and get inspired by ideas. The showroom is also an industry resource with a vast design library. Agostinos designers meet with customers and other designers in a calming environment to pore over hundreds of samples of fabric, wallpaper and even carpeting.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com APRIL 2015 LUXE LIVING 13COVER STORY By KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentYOU COULD CALL JAN SODERQUIST AND GARETH Rockliffe local celebrities. But this photography teams reach goes far beyond the small scope of Naples. Case in point: their photography has included assignments for people such as Richard Branson and other international projects. What this power couple loves most is photographing landscapes, hopping from coastline to coastline, living on the road in their 1983 Airstream trailer. Theyve kept the dcor the same since they bought their Airstream 10 years ago, and suspect due to the fun design that the previous owners had help from a designer to decorate the interior. We bought it from a couple who had another Airstream and this one was very special to them, Ms. Soderquist says. They had traveled all over including to Alaska in it, so they interviewed us to make sure we were the couple they wanted to have it. When we saw the leopard print curtains and animal print, I thought it was so cool and it was so well done. We both knew we love that lifestyle of being on the road, and when we saw this Airstream, it was love at first sight. Gareth RockliffeSODERQUIST PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOS Top: Jan Soderquist and Lily take in the view during a stop on the Great American Coastline Tour. Above: Gareth Rockliffe joins the fun. The couple and their canine have traveled the country in their 1983 Airstream.Airstream is the nobility of mobilityLuxury in tow SEE AIRSTREAM, 14
14 LUXE LIVING APRIL 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Airstream also has maps for wallpaper, which fits with the travel theme. The couple loved the fact that it looked like no other Airstream. Both Ms. Soderquist and Mr. Rockliffe are quite cultured people he from the United Kingdom and she from New England yet here they were, going to Punta Gorda to buy a vintage Airstream decorated in animal print. It was hilarious how the previous owners mixed and matched the dcor, even the Kleenex box holders, pot holders and something to wrap your beer in even these incidentals were done in animal prints, says Ms. Soderquist, who shares with Mr. Rockliffe a transitional modern studio and home in North Naples. Their Airstream is 27 feet long and has an interesting layout. The bathroom is in the back with a miniature tub and small shower. It has two single beds side by side and a couch in front of the trailer that pulls out to a queen bed. Because of the trailers age, they had to replace the air conditioner, water tank and boiler, but the design remained the same. Airstreams by definition, there isnt a lot of storage, but they are creative with the storage it has, says Mr. Rockliffe, who enjoys going off into the woods with no hook-ups. Thats called boondocking and you have your propane to run the fridge and the st ove, and a little battery that runs everything else for a few days, while the newer rigs provide more time. He says growing up in England, there were three things that epitomized America: the Corvette, Harley-Davidson and Airstream. We both knew we love that lifestyle of being on the road, and when we saw this Airstream, it was love at first sight, he says. The people we purchased it from were definitely sad to see it go. Airstream recently announced a rare update resulting in the 2015 Airstream Classic, which incorporates cherry-wood cabinetry, hardware from Amerock, highpolish Corian countertops and Kohler faucets, with a stainless steel oven from AIRSTREAMFrom page 13RANGE ROVER / COURTESY PHOTO Airstream and Range Rover teamed up for a trek from the UK to Morocco.SODERQUIST PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTO A woodsy retreat made a perfect overnight stop on the SoderquistRockliffe adventure.AIRSTREAM / COURTESY PHOTO The Airstrteam lifestyle is a community, with owners often meeting up and traveling together.

Engineers and wood craftsmen redesigned the master bedroom and bath to include a new power-adjustable queen bed and air-duct system hidden within the trailers unique curves and edges. They added Villa furniture, including a sofa with individually power reclining seats, more of the iconic Airstream windows and low-energy, high-visibility LED lighting. Additional upgrades include marinegrade Polk stereo systems, powered stabilizer jacks and awnings with matching, foldable Zip Dee chairs. Last year, Ms. Soderquist and Mr. Rockliffe founded The Great American Coastline Project, hopped in their Airstream with their dog Lily and hit the West Coast to chronicle Americas coastal regions in photos and video. Its an ambitious project that will continue later this year with the Eastern Seaboard. They crowdfunded it on Kickstarter and captured the entire journey on the free iPhone app PikMobile. They logged 12,000 miles on this trip alone, but theyve traveled more than 80,000 miles with the Airstream, sleeping and living in it throughout their journeys. They feel as at home on the Airstream as they do in their own house. Its such a cool way to travel, and we love the people we meet on the road, Mr. Rockliffe says. You can stay in some of the most beautiful places in the world and plan to stop in select places, or just drive as long as you want to and pull over and spend the night when you feel like it. They traveled through California, Oregon and Washington after the kids had all gone back to school, so they say they had loads of choices and tried to make smart ones deciding where to stop. Because we were hugging the coastline, we were on some remote beaches along the coast and we tended to go to places where we didnt see many people, Ms. Soderquist says. The most beautiful beach we encountered was Rialto Beach, and along the way we took advantage of a Thousand Trails promotion, and there are all kinds of clubs you can join. The biggest surprise to the couple in the length of such an ambitious trip was how much time they had to invest just for day-to-day living. Laundry, shopping, all of that was a big experiment, and while we have traveled in our Airstream all over the place, and while we had a route in mind, not knowing the West Coast we didnt know what areas we would like or how long we were going to stay, says Ms. Soderquist, who says despite lots of research before they left Naples, they realized quickly that it was time to move on from some places sooner than others. With the East Coast tour coming up, they are looking forward to taking the Airstream through the Carolinas to places such as the Outer Banks. They hope to incorporate a healthy eating lifestyle on the road and find out where the farmers markets are along the way. I really love those places where storms create those moody skies, Ms. Soderquist says of the sometimes-haunting Carolina coast that has seduced filmmakers, coastal residents and pirates for centuries. We will probably do another Kickstarter campaign and secure more sponsors, but some things we will do exactly as we did them on the West Coast trip. Shining star of traileringWhat is it about Airstream trailers that have even the wealthiest people dragging them from coast to mountains? Even Range Rover, long the SUV of choice for the glitterati, undertook the challenge of living on the road, with a company-sponsored expedition tugging an Airstream from the English Lake District to the top of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and back. A Range Rover Autobiography with a 339PS SDV8 engine towed the silver bullet from Tebay, just a few miles from the Scottish border, to Oukameden, the SODERQUIST PHOTOGRAPHY / COURTESY PHOTOS The Soderquist-Rockliffe Airstream has twin beds, above, and a sofa at the front of the cabin, below, that converts to a queen bed.

The group stopped in Solihull, Frank Gehrys amazing aluminum Marques de Riscal building in the Spanish wine region of Rioja, the beach near Casablanca, the desert outside Chichaoua and the race track at Marrakesh. The trip encompassed about 12 hours a day on the road in what organizer Ben Samuelson called every type of road imaginable, from the empty motorways of Spain to the precipitous hairpins of the High Atlas. You can compare the Airstream to a boutique hotel albeit a mobile one and taking this combination of rig on your travels injects style and comfort, Mr. Samuelson says. His firm, Samuelson Wylie Associates, planned and executed the trip. The moment that really summed up the magic of a journey like this was waking up in the Airstream on a sunny morning next to the beach just outside Casablanca only a few days after towing it down a crowded British motorway through typically dismal autumnal British weather. Mr. Samuelson loved being able to do regular things in spectacular places: taking a hot shower followed by breakfast and reading the morning newspaper on his iPad courtesy of the Airstreams satellite broadband. I think we proved that luxury and adventure are not mutually exclusive, he says. Airstream actually began in Americas original adventure-ville, California. Airstreams are now manufactured in Ohio, where enthusiasts come by busload to tour the plant. Fans are like the Twilight equivalent of silver bullet road travel. Airstream staffers share that slice of Americana appreciation. Generations of people work there. Two employees who worked there 55 years just retired. Whats magical about how the passion for Airstream survives so long is thanks to our founder, Wally Byam, who had a vision in the 1920s for people to see the world, says Molly Hansen of Airstream. This is his legacy of wanting to get people out, and we know that our customers have wanderlust and are a very curious people by nature. They dont sit and think about it. They do it. True Airstream enthusiasts are active participants in life and cant wait for their next adventure. Two of them, Ms. Soderquist and Mr. Rockliffe, have chosen Naples as the springboard for those adventures. IMAGINE. DESIGN.

How can we make your dreams come true?INTERIOR DESIGN Dream Interpretation
LUXE homeowners know that nothing wrecks the appearance of a home like clutter. And nothing can make you crazy like a messy closet. Russell Sanders knows all about the luxury of a great closet. In his off time, hed rather be spending time with his family or on the golf course, but at PLC Closets, he makes even the most discriminating closet dreams come true. He does it with a lot of heart and spirit, something that extends to the vibe of the whole company. I really love working with people, so I dont feel like I am going to work when I am helping people design their closets, says the man whose dream is to have a putting green in his closet. PLC is a tight company that focuses on the customer from start to finish and beyond, which means we want everyone to feel part of the family. We asked Mr. Sanders to dish about his juiciest closet design tricks, and he let fly about gadgets, wire closet shelves and why angles are great everywhere except in a closet. Q: Whats your favorite home design trend right now? Is there anything new and cool in closets homeowners might be excited to know? My favorite thing right now is the different materials available. We can make the same design seem elegant or beachthemed by just changing the color of the material. And the accessories, I am a gadget guy! Why not have my shoes on a remote-controlled, spinning holder! Q: What closet trends have gone by the wayside? Luckily, I think it is just putting a couple of wire shelves and rails and calling it a closet. People are turning their closets into a personal retreat that they can show off and where they can organize their belongings with their own personal flair. Q: If you could have the closet of your dreams, what would that include? Lots of space for a never-ending supply of clean golf shirts and shoes. And a putting green thats my dream. Why not? Q: Are there different styles of closets that match a certain genre, such as modern or transitional, or classic wood styles? There are, and you can go modern with clean lines and a minimalistic look, or go traditional with elegant, fluted fillers and crown moldings. Q: What was the most difficult closet youve ever done? What were the challenges? The most difficult closet is a small closet with lots of angles, because angles create a loss of space. Thats why at PLC, we give our customers a 3D rendering both on paper and one that they can view on their tablet as if they are standing in the middle of their closet. It shows everything exactly as it will be once completed. Q: Please share any advice you have for a homeowner embarking on newhome construction or any resources for creating a dream closet. Remember your closets. Some builders will just use the leftover space for closets. Remember that you will use it every day. Insist on ample room and think about your clothing. Remember you will grow into the space, so allow room for that. Remember, we dont have basements builders want to make homes big and open, and storage space is sometimes forgotten. Q: Whats the most over-the-top, luxury closet you ever saw? A: We did one that was pretty over the top where a client turned a bedroom into a closet and we decked it out with all the goodies, including lots of drawer space, hampers and crown molding. We turned the original closet into a shoe closet with an entire wall of slanted shoe shelves and handbag cubbies. It was a real dream closet for a woman with lots of accessories.
