www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015 matterbrothersfurniture.com Monday Saturday 10am-6pm Sunday 12pm-5pmNaples, Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park SET THE TABLE FOR THE HOLIDAYS COMMENTARYThanks, but no thanksThanksgiving is about as close to a New England fall as we are ever going to get. A prelude to the holiday of falling leaves, killing frosts and a winter harvest are unfamiliar in South Florida, but we try hard to make up for it. What a pumpkin-scented candle cannot accomplish, we achieve by accessorizing. The holiday in many households is thus exactly as Hallmark imagines it for us. Our Thanksgiving fete and culinary journey began in 1621 when the pilgrims celebrated the first harvest in the New World. They invited their Native American neighbors to join them. Our national practice of the holiday mirrors these origins, but we often detour from the well-worn pilgrims path. We improvise, creating rituals wholly our own, originating in and out of the diverse cultural traditions from which we sprang as immigrants. Only the holidays historical narrative remains comparatively bland. It includes an imaginary Instagram of the genesis of this special day. It captures the moment when the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, a snapshot of a small group of men and women, their earnest faces etched with the harrows of the journey. Their eyes are uplifted to heaven, expressing relief and gratitude to God for their safe arrival. We anticipate their task to launch the establishment of a colony in an alien landscape fraught with unknowns. The colony they create is destined to become a milestone in the founding of the United States of America. Their gratitude at that moment becomes our own, and we, too, are full of thanksgiving. It is late in our education when we get the rest of the story, if we get it at all. This is the darker side of the history rarely mentioned in polite company and seldom part of the Thanksgiving story. Colonizers have a historical reputation for bad behaviors as guests in the places they choose to occupy. You might compare the absence of their social and cultural graces to an adult child who announces at the holiday table what he or she really thinks about their Dads new wife, or a drunken uncle who downs a Mason jar full of Makers Mark as an aperitif. It just goes downhill from there. The pilgrims arrival in the New World was the beginning of an era that historians call the period of colonization in America. The newcomers typically introduced carnage and mayhem among the people indigenous to the places invaded, and then ruled them through political oppression. The wholesale appropriation of land and natural resources proceeded. The colonizers executed the plunder of commonwealth with astonishing efficiency. Its beneficiaries rarely included those exploited to achieve its objectives. Colonizers are, by nature, a covetous lot. Their mission assumes displacement of those who have a legitimate claim to the geography they occupy and the natural resources they share. Florida attracted colonizers as flowers attract bees. Their invasions occurred periodically, mercenaries seeking religious tolerance but also riches to exploit, extending the power and reach of their sovereignties over new domains. Those laying claim to our tropical paradise included Spain, France, Great Britain, the Confederacy and the U.S.A. The Confederacys inclusion in this league of nations is rather a stretch. Though historically correct, the substance of its admission to this otherwise exclusive club was a gesture of appeasement to southern pride. The state Legislature recently made an overdue adjustment to this gratuity by removing the Stars and Bars from the state seal and its display by state government on public grounds. The spot vacated by the Confederacy is now empty. I propose we add another flag in its place. It would signify the arrival of a new era, the colonization and exploitation by corporations of Floridas land, water and public resources. Like Floridas former majesties, Gov. Scotts expansionist philosophy invites a bold grab by mercenaries of contested terrain. His purpose is to unleash a new era of unfettered growth and development, over the objections of ordinary Floridians. The flag symbolic of the governors ambitions might look like this: a giant dollar sign displayed against a background of corporate logos. Each logo represents the special interests that receive boatloads of public subsidy paid for by you and me. The gifts are the modern equivalent of the land grants made by monarchs to incentivize colonization and appropriation of new territory. It is no longer so complicated. Modern despots just rob the public till and write checks to companies to subsidize their bottom line corporate welfare, in other words. The latest giveaway the governor proposes is a $1 billion tax cut to benefit big business. If the state Legislature approves, it will be at the expense and continued neglect of the needs of our state and its residents. Monetize our state parks? Sure. We cannot afford them. There are no pilgrims in this picture, just Floridians being colonized and losing their state to corporate interests intending to exploit this New World for all that its worth.

The French designer Jean Jullien sketched it as soon as he heard the news of the atrocity. He called it Peace for Paris, and it immediately became a sensation on social media. Its success is a sign of the times. We have become experts at treacly online mourning. We take grotesque atrocities and launder them into trite symbols and slogans that are usually self-congratulatory and, of course, wholly ineffectual. The 19th-century author William Dean Howells once said, Yes, what the American public wants is a tragedy with a happy ending. On social media, the happy ending is the widely shared and tweeted image or hashtag. After the slaughter at the offices of the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo earlier this year, it was Je suis Charlie, or I am Charlie. It was a well-intentioned expression of solidarity, so long as you overlooked the absurd presumption of it. You are Charlie? Oh, OK. Then draw a sketch of Muhammad and post it online. Better yet, do it over and over again, until you get constant threats and your office is firebombed, just as a warmup. No, you arent Charlie (for that matter, Charlie isnt even Charlie anymore its given up on mocking Islam for understandable safety reasons). The Peace for Paris image is simple and emotive, if inapt. Paris doesnt need to give peace a chance. It doesnt need to make love, not war. It doesnt need to be more understanding or more hopeful. It needs to be better protected by all those unsentimental means that have been neglected in recent years, or overwhelmed by the growing threat of ISIS. Paris and more broadly France and the West needs more surveillance of suspected terrorists and police raids; a more restrictive immigration policy that doesnt create large, unassimilated Muslim populations, or welcome terrorists as refugees; and a serious, multilayered campaign to destroy ISIS and deny it the safe havens from which it recruits and trains, and plots against the West. If someone can come up with a catchy symbol for that, Ill embrace it (although La Marseillaise isnt so bad: To arms citizens/Form your battalions/March, march). Meanwhile, spare me the #PrayforParis hashtag. Forgive me if Im unmoved by lighting up world landmarks in red, white and blue, or your putting a tricolor filter on your Facebook profile picture. And please dont tell me, in the words of the designer Jean Jullien, that in all this horror theres something positive that people are coming together in a sense of unity and peace. Nothing positive comes from innocents getting shot down in cold blood for the offense of going to a concert on a Friday night. If there arent going to be more and worse attacks in our cities, the path ahead wont be one of unity and peace. It will be the hard, thankless work of protecting civilization from its enemies. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION e o t y o s rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Floridas dodgy death system needs immediate reformRick Scott, our ferociously inept governor, is not good for much, but when it comes to executing people hes top notch. And he has the numbers to prove it. On Oct. 29, Jerry Correll, a convicted murderer, received his lethal injection at Florida State Prison. He was the 22nd person to be put to death on Mr. Scotts watch, which is a record for a Florida governor since the death penalty was reinstituted in 1979. The runner-up in this ghoulish competition is Jeb Bush, who had 21 executions during his two terms (1999-2007). The manner in which Florida sentences someone to death and then carries out that punishment is a disaster. The state has a long, tortured history of sending innocents to Death Row and botching executions in extraordinarily gruesome ways. A host of interested parties from the American Bar Association to legal scholars to advocates for human rights to the Florida Supreme Court has called on the state, repeatedly, to undertake fundamental reforms to its capital system. Embarrassingly, Amnesty International last year identified Florida (along with Iran and North Korea) as a major concern when it comes to the administration of the death penalty. The legislature and Mr. Scott, though, continue to brush aside even modest pleas for change, choosing instead to pander to the states hardcore law-and-order crowd, which exhibits an unseemly blood lust. In 2006, the American Bar Association, which takes no position on capital punishment per se, issued a blistering report on Floridas capital practices. The ABA concluded that the state needed to improve the fairness and accuracy in the death penalty system. The study noted, among many things, that while it takes a unanimous vote to convict someone of a crime, Florida juries can recommend a death sentence based on a mere majority (7-5) vote. This bizarre legal quirk means that it is more difficult to convict a defendant of even trifling offenses (such as shoplifting, for example) than it is to recommend death. Floridas dysfunctional capital system was on full display last month during arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court. The justices are considering the case of Timothy Lee Hurst, who seeks to overturn the death sentence he received for a murder committed during the robbery of a fast-food restaurant in Pensacola in 1998. The jury voted 7-5 for his execution. In Florida, jurors weigh aggravating and mitigating circumstances when they decide whether to recommend a death sentence to the trial judge, who makes the final decision. The Hurst jury did not make clear to the judge what aggravating factors led to their decision nor were they compelled by state law to do so. Thus, the judge in Mr. Hursts case and others like it had no insight into why the jury sought the ultimate penalty. Florida judges are bound to consider a jurys recommendation, but they are not obliged to accept it. Mr. Hursts attorneys contend that this bit of legal voodoo coupled with the mere-majority standard violate their clients constitutional rights under the Sixth and Eighth Amendments. Much of their case rests on a 2002 ruling by the Supreme Court (Ring v. Arizona) in which it was held that juries, not judges, should levy death sentences. Floridas juries play only an advisory role, lawyers for Mr. Hurst pointed out in a brief filed last May. The jury recommends a sentence of life or death based on its assessment of aggravating and mitigating circumstances, but that recommendation has no binding effect. Moreover, the jury renders its advisory verdict under procedures that degrade the integrity of the jurys function. Unanimity, and the deliberation often needed to achieve it, is not necessary; only a bare majority vote is required to recommend a death sentence. Mr. Hursts position is supported by a friend-of-the-court brief filed by three former justices of the Florida Supreme Court who sounded a chilling note when they wrote that there is an unacceptable risk that Florida death sentences are erroneously imposed. The prevailing mood in Florida these days seems to be that if a handful of inmates who are invariably poor and powerless is sentenced to death in a careless or haphazard fashion, well, thats just the way it goes. This stands on its head the long-held notion that executing someone not deserving of that fate is the most grievous error a state can make. The legislature and Mr. Scott, who preposterously is mentioned as a possible Republican vice presidential candidate in 2016, should be shamed by their outright refusal to address the gross shortcomings in the states capital system; regrettably, they are not. Equally distressing is that the Floridians who elected these stone-hearted lawmakers apparently dont give a damn, either.

PROFILES IN PARADISEChanging lives through education, empowermentImmokalee is a community of the working poor, many of whom immigrated to find opportunity for themselves and their children. For more than 20 years, The Immokalee Foundation has strengthened the community with programs ranging from early childhood literacy education to college prep and advanced vocational training. Today, TIF thrives under the deft leadership of Steven Kissinger, who was appointed executive director earlier this year after serving as CFO of the Childrens Advocacy Center of Collier County for 15 years. Steven likes the fact that TIF changes and improves lives through education and empowerment. We are not offering handouts or charity, he says. The students we serve work for and earn the right to be a part of our programs. They want to better their lives with the opportunities we present. Prior to joining the Childrens Advocacy Center, Steven was a corporate accountant for the NCH Healthcare System. Beginning with his affiliation with NCH, he handled the accounting and grant administration for the Marion Feather Clinic in Immokalee and became interested in the operation of human service organizations as well as the administration and processes of grant administration. It was a natural and compelling transition to the Childrens Advocacy Center, whose mission is to improve the lives of Collier Countys abused children. Steven and his older brother, Robert, were raised in St. Louis, Mo., but moved to the Paradise Coast 30 years ago. Robert is now married and lives in Bradenton. Steven attended public schools but transferred in his sophomore year to St. John Neumann High School in Naples, where he graduated in 1991. His favorite subject was history, and he participated in student government activities, the debate team and varsity tennis. He attended the University of Florida and ultimately graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with a bachelors degree in accounting. A 2005 alumnus of the Leadership Collier, he serves as chair of the current Leadership Collier class and is board chair of the Bonita Springs Assistance Office, a member and board member of the Northside Naples Kiwanis Club and a member of the Bonita Springs Zoning Board. He also serves on the organizing committee of the Farm City BBQ, the annual day-before-Thanksgiving feast that unites Collier Countys business and agricultural communities.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015 meal or a new outfit, or maybe a basketful of groceries or a special perfume? For many busy people that might not be the seventh circle, but it comes close, part of the energy-sucking, time-wasting model of acquisition established in the 20th century. Especially this time of year, all that might force you to question your sanity and your values. But theres an option now catching on in large numbers, it seems. What if, instead, you had your own stylist, or your own shopper at the instant beck and call of you and your smartphone or a tablet? Youd have to be rich, right? Well no, not any more. A host of boutique subscription businesses relying on quickly downloaded apps and staffed by usually faceless professionals who get to know your tastes and styles in clothing or food or beauty products are now taking care of all of this for you with tremendous efficiency and for prices that, if not basement-bargain cheap, might be attractive enough to make you try a subscription. Stitch Fix, Trunk Club, Birchbox (beauty products), BarkBox (for dogs), FabFitFun, Naturebox, Instacart, UberEATS, Amazon Prime, Shipt (groceries from Publix). Blue Apron, Bombfell, Le Tote, Culinary Twisted (a Naples start-up for foodies) these are just some of the services designed to simplify shopping. In most cases, just add a dot.com and youre good to go. Dont forget your credit card. At first glance, it seems almost impossible either that or too good to be true. In the case of clothing, for example, you pay a modest subscription fee, say monthly or just periodically, whenever you order; a box arrives at your door packed with wardrobe items you can either keep or mail back at no cost after trying them out for a few days; and your wardrobe remains vibrant and in touch with contemporary styles all without you ever having to return to your car two hours later clutching a hard-won new dress only to discover a dent in the door. Clothing and beautyI think I saw it on Facebook where I get all my important information and I was very skeptical, says Caryn Clark, a voice-over actress with a perceptive sense of humor about trends, fashions and news who delights in Stitch Fix and uses it to her advantage. You pay a $20 styling fee, and they select five pieces for you on a regular basis. If you keep all five, you get $20 back and a 25 percent discount, she explains. If you dont, you just ship back (for free) what you dont want. And if you dont like the service you can cancel at any time at no cost. Other companies Trunk Fit, for example, which is growing in popularity with the mens market use a similar approach. Mens clothes may be more expensive than womens in these services, Ms. Clark warns, perhaps because men tend not to buy as many clothes or as often, she theorizes. And indeed, a look at trunkfit.com showed boxes of 12 or more items ranging in price from about $160 up, per item (trousers and shirts, mostly). But before you acquire anything, says Ms. Clark, you fill out a profile describing your height, weight, sizes and based on photos they send you tastes. You tell them where you feel fatter like, I might wear a small shirt, but I know my arms are bigger than the usual girls. I sort of told them that. How you prefer your clothes to fit, what you wear in pants, skirts and shirts what kinds of jeans you like, your shoe sizes, how you characterize your portions. So like, if youre narrow or bigger in your arms, legs or torsos, you tell them. This is confidential, of course shes your stylist, not your interrogator. Then they say, What do you think of these pictures? Thats when you start making choices that might inform or affect your future. You can choose one of the following: love it, like it, dont really like it, or, you know, hate it! And they do that with a variety of styles, says Ms. Clark. One would be bohemian, one romantic, one edgy, one classic, one probably glam and they ask your occupation, and if youre a mom, and how often you dress for the following locations: business casual work (not me, I work from home); cocktail (rarely), date night/night out to laid-back casual (me most of the time). Lindsey Nesmith, a mom and a Naplesbased Florida Weekly writer, began her subscription services experience at Birchbox.com (beauty products). I did Birchbox for about a year, and it was pretty cool, she says. That subscription is $10 a month, and they send five or six beauty samples. Nancy Newman, in North Palm Beach, uses Birchbox as well. When you sign up, you give them an idea of what you like to have, whether mascaras or colognes or lotions and they build the box in samples along those lines, she explains. The thing that surprised me and it shouldnt have is that these are sample sizes and relatively small. But I havent used up anything. And if you like something, you can turn around and buy that product in larger sizes on-line, through Birchbox. Is she saving money? Its hard to say, Ms. Newman concludes. I get it just for fun. Its like getting a little present for yourself each month. Or a big present, in the case of Stitch Fix. After Birchbox, Lindsey Nesmith tried the clothing-company subscription, suspended it (you can stop a subscription at any time with no penalty fee), then jumped back in, again, when it really mattered. It was cool when I came back to work after staying home with the kids for a few years, being sloppy, she explains. Because then it was time to shop. Again. I hate shopping, she admits. But I needed to look presentable and avoid the work that went into it. Not having to take a Saturday and go and buy pants is totally worth the $20 fee to me. So she worked with a stylist and watched the service become sophisticated. My experience with Stitch Fix is that as they got a better idea of the things I was keeping, they sent me better ideas. There is a learning curve for the stylist, and if it takes awhile that $20 might not feel like a deal. There are other questions, too questions that tiptoe along the edge of personality to make a stylist more sophisticated in choices for a shopper. But after all, sometimes style is personality. What do you like to flaunt or what do you want to keep covered? They give you choices (of course): I love showing it off; sometimes Ill flaunt it; only for special occasions; or, less is more, keep it covered: the arms, back, cleavage, rear legs. Lest you think this is all about women, Ms. Clark offers another observation, too. The mens clothes seem more for the metro-sexual guy. There was nothing there my boyfriend would be interested in. But her boyfriend, Thomas Flynn, was interested in what she wore. I filled out the profile myself, Ms. SHOPPINGFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSMatthew Berman runs Culinary Twisted, a Naples-based food delivery service.

Clark recalls, and I was getting some cool stuff, and Id try something on, and he was like, I dont like it. So he went and filled out my profile again. He changed things around. He changed the styles. There were certain things I said maybe I would wear, and he said, No. So we decided, lets up the game. And he upped the price point, too. (Price point, as they say, is how much youre willing to spend. You can tell the company, and they wont go over your budget, they promise.) He changed things like what I like to flaunt Do I want things to fit tighter in certain areas? So I got the fix and I had a lot of fun. Last time I spent $220, though, so I cancelled my next fix. Some of my friends might keep all five pieces, even if they dont like them, get the discount, and sell the pieces they dont like. No wonder thats just good business. This is America, after all. We do entrepreneurs better than anybody. We do food pretty well these days, too.Food for style or necessityRand Hoch, a nationally known labor mediation attorney and leader of the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council, is sold on Blue Apron, billed as a better way to cook: fresh ingredients, great recipes, delivered weekly to your door. They arent kidding: the company invites its patrons to meet the businesses or farmers they use, outfits that come equipped with names like Ancient Organics (ghee made in Berkeley, Calif.) or Greenpoint Trading Company (spices from Brooklyn). Its idiot proof, says Mr. Hoch, who loves to spend some time in the kitchen of his condo cooking and to increase his culinary repertoire and knowledge, but not to increase the time he spends in the aisles of grocery stores. They send you whatever you need if its two scallions or a teaspoon of butter for a recipe? Thats what you get. Along with a recipe card and very specific instructions. Completely fresh, delivered right to your door. One box has everything, and its very well packed with ice and a thermal blanket. I live in a condo so theres nobody at a front desk. So if Im not there, thats not a problem. The company offers different meal plans and different price ranges: in Mr. Hochs case that means one box per week containing three meals for two, for $59.95. Food and recipes provided in weekly shipments are never repeated in a given year, the company says, and for Mr. Hoch that means six meals a week. Im picking up some little things to do, too, he adds. I use a lot of lemon zest now, and I like green apples and I can make a green apple salad. Im picky about green vegetables, always have been, but now Im trying vegetables again I havent had in 60 years. But some adjustment was required for Mr. Hoch, too. At first I was basically eating for two and I gained a lot of weight that didnt work very well. But now Im inviting over friends. Were socializing, cooking and eating together. So now its a social event, and I have people lined up for next week. A local version of specialty food deliveries ordered online is Culinary Twist, which just started in Naples and serves the southwest coast north to Fort Myers. Our menus change every two weeks, and it never gets boring, says Matt Burman, co-owner with his brother, Seth Burman, both of Culinary Twisted and Noodles Italian Caf and Sushi Bar. Its fresh and healthy, gluten-free, we have eight other meals in addition to our flagship salad-in-a-jar (with dressing included in its own container), and there are six to eight ounces of protein in each meal. More expensive than food from Blue Apron, Culinary Twists meals come fully prepared.

Were doing mahi and salmon this week, a mahi taco with shrimp with pineapple and coconut slaw, and the salmon with gluten-free teriyaki soy marinade, and brown rice.Variation on a traditional themeFor those stay-at-homes who are more prosaic, perhaps or more independent, preferring deliveries of food that leave it all to their own imaginations and skills the new online ordering firm Shipt arrived in Naples and Fort Myers last week, and with quite a splash. Unlike the traditional grocery delivery firms, the company hires about 300 shoppers in a market such as the southwest coast. Customers place their orders using an app on their phones or computers. Shoppers then pick up orders and deliver groceries often within a few hours, if required, says Anne Adams, a company spokeswoman based in Alabama. From Orlando and Tampa south through all of South Florida we have tons of demand, she says. Our shoppers are independent contractors and they pick their own schedules. They get paid a percentage of each order, plus $5 per order, and we recently added a tipping feature to our app. Customer pay slightly more than they would if they shopped in a Publix market themselves. Our customers pay a monthly or a yearly membership fee, and then they an average of $5 per $35 order, she says. The subscription fee costs $14 a month or $99 a year for free delivery of orders over $35. For Tricia Sommers, a trained nurse with two children who arrived in the Naples area from Utah last February after her husband was accepted into a graduate nursing program here, the new service was a chance to get work, not groceries. Shes is now an official shopper, picking her own schedule. Last week, after she took an order online, hustled to the Publix at The Shoppes of Pebblebrooke and picked up more than $200 worth of groceries for an elderly customer, she paused to reflect on the experience. You pick your own day and time, so its very flexible, and Im a mom with two kids and a husband in grad school, so that works. For both consumers and workers, it turns out, convenience and flexibility define the new, 21st-century shopping experience. COURTESY PHOTOBarkBox offers doggie treat deliveries.

The gift was announced at the 2015 Presidents Scholarship Luncheon earlier this month. Mr. Collier said he and his wife were motivated to make the gift because we wanted to give back to Collier County for being so great to us. We watched the creation of this new university and have seen what went into it We need to look at the next generation to be tomorrows leaders of business. We need to be investing in the best education possible for them. We feel blessed to be able to give back in this way and hope others will be motivated to give as well. The Colliers first endowed a scholarship fund in 1995, two years before FGCU opened its doors. Since then their daughter has attended and graduated from the university. We were impressed by how personable the faculty and staff members were and how the professors really get to know their students, Mr. Collier said. In accepting the gift, FGCU President Wilson Bradshaw said, Not many people have been connected to the university for as long as your family has. We are deeply grateful for your longstanding generosity, which will help Collier County students obtain the education they need to be successful. The Dana and Barron Collier III Scholarship Endowed Fund awards scholarships to deserving students from Collier County. The recent gift comes in the form of a $4 million life insurance policy. Barron Collier III was named for his grandfather, an advertising magnate and entrepreneur who founded the company that still bears his name. Collier III, who goes by Barry, serves as the chairman of the board of the Barron Collier Companies, which owns significant amounts of land in Collier County, as well as interests in real estate, mineral management and agriculture. For more information about the scholarship fund, call Chris Simoneau, vice president for university advancement at FGCU, at 590-1067. The Community Foundation of Collier County distributed $2,032,793 in grants to 167 organizations between July 1 and Sept. 30 this year. Grants awarded for the foundations previous fiscal year from July 1 through June 30, 2015 exceeded $10.3 million. These dollars fuel programs that meet local challenges and improve the quality of life in our region, Eileen Connolly-Keesler, foundation president, says. We track the vital signs and we know how pressing the needs are in terms of homelessness, hunger, health care, the arts, the environment and issues facing women and girls in Collier County. More than $800,000 of the firstquarter grant total came from the foundations donor advised fund, which allow donors to participate in the funding process by suggesting grant recipients. Grants can be made to anywhere in the U.S., however 64 percent of this donor advised grant total was directed locally to Collier County agencies, including the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County, The Shelter for Abused Women & Children, Conservancy of Southwest Florida and David Lawrence Foundation for Mental Health. Heres how the grant distribution breaks down by category: Art: $102,942; community impact, $63,623; education, $814,087; environment, $240,573; health, $273,454; human services, $393,329; foreign affairs, $48,857; religion, $96,028. Donor advisors can also name successor advisors to continue grant-making after they pass away. Jim and Jeanne McTague established their donor advised fund knowing they wanted to support the many nonprofit causes dear to their hearts. When Jeanne died in 2000, Jim continued with their charitable plans with the future in mind. In thinking about a succession plan, his wish was to share the value of giving back with his children and grandchildren. He worked with the foundation to divide his fund into separate funds for his four daughters and their families. Jim hopes that his legacy will be that his family will experience and share in the same rewards of charitable giving that Jeanne and he shared in their lifetime. About the foundationEstablished in 1985 to increase and focus private philanthropy in the area, today the Community Foundation of Collier County manages more than 510 funds, collaborates with more than 400 nonprofits, holds more than $106 million in assets and has distributed more than $88 million in grants to nonprofit organizations and community programs.

Theres only one Hyundai badge on the rear, and everywhere else inside and out only carries large wingspan logos with the Genesis model name. Thats because by next year this all-new range-topping Hyundai will be the brea d-and-butter of a new luxury brand. The Genesis name will be applied to a line of luxury vehicles. This will include the replacement for the full-size Hyundai Equus, and likely at least one SUV to follow. When the Genesis model name becomes a standalone brand, the sedan seen here will officially become known as the D80, and the new Equus will be the D90. On the surface this push into a premium brand looks much like what Toyota, Nissan and Honda accomplished decades ago with Lexus, Infiniti and Acura respectively. But for Hyundai this will be different. It enters into a market that has many more established players, including the Asian trio mentioned above. Thats why this sedans styling is unapologetically aimed at the premium car buyer leading with a big, bold grille that lies somewhere in between Audi and Aston Martin. The side carries a chiseled line from hood to trunk that almost could have come from Mercedes. It finishes in a rear end as unclutte red as a Lexus ES. Hyundai might deny any of these inspirations, but its certainly aiming for these types of comparisons. Thats because the new Genesis brands big ace in the hole will be value. The lowest cost BMW 5-Series is around $50,000. Thats $12K more than it takes to get on the lowest rung of the Genesis ladder, and the base 3.8-liter motor in our test car produces 30 percent more power. The Genesis can be optioned up to the BMWs price level, but then it comes loaded with features like a huge panoramic sunroof, Travel Link touchscreen infotainment stereo system, lane departure warnings, and a nifty heads-up display that even alerts the driver when the car is driving through a reduced speed school zone. The company that should fear this competition the most is Acura. The RLX and the future D80 sedan compete in size and horsepower ratings. The Acura comes well equipped at its $55K base price, but the Genesis offers similar features for thousands less. Plus, the soonto-be D80 comes standard in rear-wheel drive and offers a powerful V8 option two things that some luxury buyers want for bragging rights. But the real reason this is an Acura fighter is from the feeling behind the wheel. Lexus sedans gained status by providing quiet isolation, and BMW builds luxury still worthy of the racetrack. Acura has carved out its reputation for being somewhere in between those two, and now so does this Genesis. On the road this new sedan is a model for calm luxury right up until the driver indicates it is time to stop being an introvert. The engine only breaks its whisper for a joyful growl when the accelerator is mashed against the floor. The steering wheel remains stiff and rock-steady unless it is moved quickly and aggressively a few inches. Then the whole car goes into a sport mode that takes on the characteristics of a happy puppy. This overall packaging feels well thought out, which translates into value for money. The new Genesis brand will be given a portion of existing shops for a dealerwithin-a-dealer feel. There will obviously be some problems with trying to sell luxury vehicles within earshot of people asking for free floor mats, but Hyundai has already been working on a plan for a few years. Theres already a concierge service in place where everything from test drives to service calls come to the customer. So instead of going to the dealer for maintenance, there is the option of a representative going to a home or business and swapping out the loaner vehicle at an owners convenience. This plan has premium customer potential that goes against the traditional ideas of luxury from the dealers. Its a risky proposition, but then again, revolutions often are. It helps that the cornerstone of this upheaval is a well executed sedan worthy of spreading its wings beyond its humble parent. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Overlooked life insurance policies may still be a significant asset for giving BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com Sometimes whole or universal life insurance policies that people bought years ago no longer serve their original purpose and become forgotten. For instance, such policies may have once been intended for heirs to pay off estate taxes, but now with estate tax exemptions set at more than $5 million per person, that isnt needed. Its not uncommon for people to do nothing, stop paying the premiums and let them lapse in such cases. But looking at the larger picture of estate planning, that is the worst option, said Craig R. Hersch, a board-certified wills, trust and estate attorney and a CPA with Sheppard, Brett, Stewart, Hersch, Kinsey & Hill P.A. in Fort Myers. Instead of letting them turn into a wasting asset, giving them to your kids or a charity can convert them into an asset of significant value. The strategy wouldnt work with a term life insurance policy because unlike universal and whole life policies, which are a sort of hybrid between investments and insurance, a term policy doesnt build up cash value. Mr. Hersch outlined four reasons why keeping whole or universal life insurance policies current, or donating them to heirs or charities that may keep them current or convert them to cash, is a better use of such policies: 1. The policy could be used to offset income taxes that heirs still might owe upon your death, such as those from an IRA or 401(k). When that money is pulled out its taxed like income, while insurance is, generally speaking, a taxfree gift, he said. 2. The policy could provide additional liquid (cash) assets along with items such as stocks and bonds to offset illiquid assets such as real estate or a family business that could take months or in some cases years to sell and incur short term costs. If my estate is heavy with illiquid assets insurance is a way to provide liquidity, Mr. Hersch said. 3. A whole life or universal life insurance policy can provide a gift to the charity of your choice such as a hospital, a school, a scholarship, a synagogue, charitable foundation or any other organization. The charity now has a policy they can convert to a paid up in full policy and then realize the death benefits one day, he said. Donors can receive a tax deduction for the amount of the life settlement sale proceeds, not simply the cash surrender value, which may be less. Say the cash value is $250,000 on a $1 million policy when you are 50. Surrendering or cashing out the policy means getting $250,000 less any surrender charges, which can be significant. By transferring the policy to charity you could take the $250,000 deduction without any surrender charges. The charity could also decide: to either continue paying the premiums on your behalf to keep building up the value of the policy or convert it to a paid-up in full policy. Or, you might negotiate with the insurance company based on your relative health and age. The insurer could say that based on your health and age that whether you die this year or in 30 years, the payoff will be $500,000. 4. Give the policy to children or heirs and let them decide whether to continue paying premiums or cash it in. Maybe the premium payments are eating into your lifestyle, but your kids would want to continue paying the premiums to build up the value of the policy. A fifth and worst option, he said, is to take no action, stop paying the policy and create a wasting asset, the cash value wasting to nothing when not funded by premiums. I see a lot of people make that worst choice often because theyre not knowledgeable about the choices that they have, he said.

One teaching associate of Eastern Virginia Medical School told The Washington Post in September that the helpers act as enthusiastic surgical dummies to 65 medical colleges, guiding rookie fingers through the trainers own private parts. The prostate associate might helpfully caution, No need for speed here, especially since he will be bending over for as many as nine probings a day. A gynecological teaching associate, mentoring the nervous speculum-wielder, might wittily congratulate pupils on having a front-row sight line the GTA will never witness: an up-close view of her own cervix.Latest religious messagesAmerican Sharia: (1) U.S. parents have a right to home-school their kids, but are subject to varying degrees of regulation, with Texas the most lax, and one El Paso family will have a day before the Texas Supreme Court after one of its kids was reported declining to study because education was useless since he was waiting to be raptured (as described in the Bibles Book of Revelation). (2) U.S. courts increasingly allow customers to sign away state and federal rights by agreeing to contracts providing private arbitration for disputes rather than access to courts even if the contract explicitly requires only religious resolutions rather than secular, constitutional ones. A November New York Times investigation examined contracts ranging from Scientologys requirement that fraud claims by members be resolved only by Scientologists to various consumer issues from home repairs to real estate sales limited to dockets of Christian clerics.Leading economic indicatorsFirst-World Spending: According to estimates released by the National Retail Federation in September, 157 million Americans planned to celebrate Halloween, spending a total of $6.9 billion, of which $2.5 billion would be on costumes, including $350 million dressing up family pets. At a ceremony in Kabul in November, prominent Afghan developer Khalilullah Frozi signed a $95 million contract to build an 8,800-unit township and was, according to a New York Times dispatch, toasted for his role in the countrys economic rebirth. However, at nightfall, Mr. Frozi headed back to prison to resume his 15-year sentence for defrauding Kabul Bank of nearly $1 billion in depositors money. Because he remains one of Afghanistans elite, arrangements were made for him to work days but spend his nights in prison (in comfortable quarters). Said one Western official, laconically, (I)f you have stolen enough money, you can get away with it.Cultural diversityBefore the terrorist murders gripped Paris, President Francois Hollande and Irans President Hassan Rouhani had been trying to arrange a formal dinner during Mr. Rouhanis planned visit to the city to celebrate the two countries role in the recent accord limiting Irans nuclear development. Frances RTL radio news reported that dinner is apparently more vexing than nuclear weaponry as Mr. Rouhani demanded an alcohol-free meal, which was nixed by Mr. Hollande, who insisted that the French never dine without wine.Compelling explanations Skeptics feared it was just a matter of time, anyway, until the political correctness movement turned its attention to dignity for thieves. San Franciscos SFGate.com reported in November on a discussion in an upscale neighborhood about whether someone committing petty, nonviolent theft should be referred to by the offensive term criminal (rather than as, for example, the person who stole my bicycle, since criminal implies a harsher level of evil and fails to acknowledge factors that might have caused momentary desperation by a person in severe need). Reginald Gildersleeve, 55 and free on bond with an extensive rap sheet, was waving a gun as he threatened a clerk and tried to rob a store in Chicago on Halloween night until a customer (licensed to carry) drew his own gun and, with multiple shots, killed Mr. Gildersleeve. Closer inspection revealed Mr. Gildersleeves weapon to be merely a paintball gun, leading the deceased mans stepson to complain later that Some people (the licensed shooter) dont actually know how to use guns. They go to firing ranges, but its not the same ... as a bullet going into flesh. ... Someones got to answer for that.The continuing crisis U.S. and European entrepreneurs offer extreme games in which liability-waiving players volunteer for hours of kidnapping, pain and death threats, but the cultlike, under-the-radar McKamey Manor in Southern California (said to have a waiting list of 27,000) is notable for the starkness of its threats of brutality and the absence of any safe word with which a suddenly reluctant player can beg off. (Only Russ McKamey himself decides if a player has had enough.) The product is 00 percent fear, he said. Were good at it, he told Londons The Guardian in an October dispatch from San Diego (whose reporter overheard one of Mr. McKameys thugs promise, Im going to tear that girl (player) apart and No one is leaving with eyebrows today). In October, the student newspaper of Torontos Ryerson University reported a mighty scandal that upset the student body: The schools executive offices restrooms routinely supply two-ply toilet paper while most other campus buildings offer only one-ply. Following up on the hard-hitting Ryerson Eyeopeners expose, The Canadian Press noted that the universities of Guelph, Ottawa and Toronto comfort all toilet-users bottoms the same. Ryerson officials defensively noted that older plumbing in many of their buildings cannot handle two-ply paper. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

How do these work? Most of our members nationwide prefer the annual membership plan which allows for reciprocal boating access to our fleet of 950 boats. However, some members prefer to boat in one area between 3 and 6 months a year, hence the seasonal option. Seasonal members pay a 1x entry fee and choose either a three or six month plan including the months they want to boat. Monthly payments are locked in and spread over a year. Many snowbirds choose this plan so they can enjoy unlimited boating the months that they are here, but some locals prefer it as well. I recommend visiting one of our membership executives to review all of the flexible and affordable plans available, to find which one best meets your boating lifestyle and budget. 877.804.0402 Immokalee. I want to become a doctor, she says. I got into the program because I heard they were helping with schoolwork, and I felt like I needed it. Indeed that is one of the program goals, said Amber Craig, an afterschool specialist with TIF She explains that Aida participates in the younger version of the Career Development Program for high school students. In Junior CDP, students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades meet with others in their grade level three afternoons a week, with the first 30 minutes spent in homework tutoring. Then the next hour is a mini-lesson that focuses on what they are learning in class, Ms. Craig says, adding CDP teachers stay in close touch with classroom teachers to reinforce what the students are learning day by day. Three teachers and seven college-age tutors participate in the Junior CDP, with the main instructional areas being reading, math and leadership skills. Aida says the reading and language arts instruction was the main reason she signed up. She is of Guatemalan heritage.

Its time to figure out your game plan to get through Thanksgiving, enjoy your family meal and not have any guilt after the feast. To that end, registered dietitian nutritionist Felicia Stoler shares her hour-byhour survival guide: Get a full nights sleep the night before. Thanksgiving Day will likely be stressful, and a lack of sleep will take its toll. Eat breakfast. Dont save up for the big meal. Eating right away in the morning will help get your metabolism moving, and prevent you from overeating later in the day. Work out. This is another metabolism booster. It is easier to have the motivation to exercise right when you wake up, rather than after a heavy meal that makes you sleepy. Dont have time to hit the gym? Dont worry, household chores and cleaning count. Drink water throughout the entire day. Put on your normal jeans, not those baggy sweats that are a size or two too large. Snack. Choose a low-calorie healthy snack to help prevent overeating at the big meal. Season dishes with healthy herbs and condiments Season dishes with fresh herbs if possible; otherwise, dried herbs are okay. Try making some dishes with a little kick. Spicy foods are harder to eat in excess. Also consider an oil change. Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil is a healthy alternative to corn and canola oils, and also has a higher smoke point. Wait at least a half hour between dinner and dessert. Your brain will have to time to get the message to your stomach that you are full, and you wont eat as much dessert (or any). Take a post-dinner walk. If you are still awake and able to move, an afterdinner walk is a great way to speed up digestion. Felicia Stoler is a registered dietitian nutritionist, exercise physiologist and consultant in nutrition and healthful living. She was the host for TLCs reality show Honey, Were Killing the Kids and is the author of Living Skinny in Fat Genes: The Healthy Way to Lose Weight and Feel Great (Pegasus, 2011). allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org NCH nurses focus on seven points of their workWhat does it take to be a nurse at NCH? That was the question underlying the Nurses Care Here (NCH) presentation delivered recently by Chief Nursing Officer Michele Thoman to many of the 1,100 nurses on our two campuses. NCHs professional practice model what we do every day as we care for patients has been developed with suggestions coming from frontline nurses, leaders and educators to better capture our culture. We selected 44 words to describe NCH nursing values; these words were then collated for meaning by a council of our colleagues. Finally these seven values were selected to describe the essence of the life-saving work NCH nurses do every day: Patientand family-centered: I develop a plan of care that is tailored to the patients unique needs, their anxiety and what is important for them because the patient is the purpose for me being here. Collaboration: I value and actively engage the patient, family, health-care providers, care partners and community to include their perspective, expertise and/or mutual participation in the plan of care for my patient because achievement of the patients goals and outc omes is a shared ownership. Quality and safety: I keep safety and quality first in my work by using evidenced-based practice to make highquality health care more accessible, equitable and affordable because improving improves outcomes for everyone. Innovation: I think out of the box for ways to improve our care by being creative because new ideas have potential to positively impact the care of my patient. Shared decision making: I contribute my knowledge and experience SEE WEISS, A25 HEALTHY LIVING

MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS ONFood is medicine: the anti-inflammatory diet prescription for arthritis BY JL WATSON Lee Memorial Health SystemOsteoarthritis, a chronic degenerative disorder that causes pain and stiffness of the joints, can affect any joint the most commonly involved joints are the knees, hips, spine and hands. Multiple studies have shown that the amount of inflammation found in the body and joints is directly correlated with the amount of pain one experiences, regardless of the severity of joint damage on X-ray. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications ibuprofen and Aleve are most commonly used to decrease inflammation and treat the symptoms of arthritis, says Lee Physician Group physiatrist Sebastian Klisiewicz, D.O. But these medications have side effects including stomach ulcers, kidney damage and increased risk for heart attack. There is a better and safer way to treat inflammation, which starts in the stomach, Dr. Klisiewicz says Every bite we take can either increase or decrease inflammation. People who consume a diet high in fat, processed carbohydrates and poor quality protein the standard American diet experience inflammation in their bodies and joints that results in more pain. Those who consume a diet high in fruits, vegetables, healthy proteins and fats tend to have less pain and stiffness. Multiple studies identified several nutrients, including antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin K and magnesium, as protective against painful arthritis. The common denominator in these studies was that these nutrients came from the same foods: green leafy vegetables, fruits, beans and nuts. Foods that are high in sugar (such as soda) and foods high in animal protein and fat actually have been shown to increase inflammation. Instead of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), I recommend an anti-inflammatory diet that includes daily intake of green leafy vegetables, fruits, beans and lentils and healthy fats like those found in avocado, olive oil and small wild-caught fish, Dr. Klisiewicz says. to discussions about issues that can change the way I deliver nursing care because I can answer the question, How will care be affected? Teamwork: I know that no one is an island. No one is as smart as all of us. We offer and accept assistance because it makes our care more efficient and effective in a helpful and good-spirited manner. Professional development: I am encouraged and supported to pursue ongoing personal growth either through advancement of skills and expertise, continuing education, obtaining my next degree, certification, unit projects and other educational activities because succeeding helps us help our patients. Over the past six months, we have added 260 nurses. We have 107 new graduates with a 97 percent retention rate since the beginning of the year, 85 experienced RNs and 72 seasonal nurses to assist with our anticipated busy season. The team is also growing from within, as RNs assume more responsibility. Gina Teegarden is now associate chief nursing officer; Erica Szczepkowski and Kevin Smith became directors; Barb Wegeners role as a director has expanded; Elizabeth Gutierrez, Marie Hageman, Angela Devaney, Pam Sabin, Hazel Wynter Jones, Christina Carranza, Lisa Fletcher and Elizabeth Barley are now nurse managers; and Millie Sattler is our new magnet coordinator.

FT. Seeking to put Gods love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. BY DR. TONY JOHNSONfor Universal UclickAs I strolled through the grocery store last month, I noticed that the Christmas decor was already up. In my mind, it was still summer, but apparently the good folks at my local fooditorium wanted to ring in the holidays a tad early this year. Some day, I am certain they will start putting up the tinsel in June. The holiday season is one of togetherness, and pets are increasingly a big part of the holiday festivities. During this otherwise joyous season, a few pet dangers are lurking, though. This info will help keep your pet safe during all the fun and avoid expensive trips to the pet ER. Food The biggest holiday threats to pets come from the same threats to your waistline and chances of you fitting into your skinny jeans food! The holiday season is all about food (yeah, and love and family and all that other stuff, too), and theres plenty of it to be had: cookies, roast beast, puddings and more cookies. To you, it may just mean another hour on the stair stepper, but to your dog, human food can cause real problems. Vomiting and diarrhea are common side effects from eating too much people food (the medical term we throw about is dietary indiscretion), and in some cases, this can proceed to a more serious condition called pancreatitis. Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas, the gland that makes digestive enzymes as well as insulin. When the pancreas becomes inflamed, it releases these enzymes and begins digesting itself. This can be a serious and painful condition that often requires hospitalization. It is probably a good idea to either keep pets confined during any holiday parties, or make sure guests (especially kids) know not to give treats to your pets. Dogs and cats have been known to drag an entire turkey off the counter when the owners back is turned (you know theyve gotta be thinking, SCORE!), so make sure you stay aware of their whereabouts during meal preparation. If you do want to include your pet in the meal and fun, stick to a bit of lean turkey and lowor no-fat veggies (no onions, though, as these can cause anemia in dogs and cats), and skip the gravy, dressing and pecan pie. Sugarfree items that contain xylitol are also toxic to pets. Booze It is true: Dont get your Doberman drunk during the holidays (or any other time), and dont let any lampshade-wearing guests try to give your pug a mug of beer. And no one wants to see a basset with a hangover. Your dog or cats liver is not equipped to process alcohol, and even small amounts can be life-threatening. Put boozy party leftovers well out of reach. That includes whisky-soaked fruitcakes, trifles laced with liqueurs and the rum balls that Aunt Martha sends every year. Open doors People come and go much more during the holidays than other times of year, and all that traffic can lead to plenty of opportunities for escape. In the ER, we see many pets who made a break for freedom when Uncle Floyd came a-callin with his special tuna surprise. Dogs and cats can dart out the door without anyone even noticing, and theres a whole big world of hurt just waiting for them out there. Ensure that pets are safely put away when you are expecting guests, and make a nightly head count to make sure that all the furry family members are accounted for before turning in for your visions of sugar plums. Heres hoping you have a sane season, and that all family members make it through safely, no matter how many legs they have. PET TALESHoliday hazardsFestive threats to pets include fatty foods, alcohol and open doors Its OK to share small amounts of holiday foods with pets, but avoid fatty or alcohollaced goodies.

What? Its Thanksgiving? Well, fine then lets just go ahead and call it New Years Eve. Well get some noisemakers, party hats and bubbly and ring in 2016. We may as well. After all, life is moving at a ridiculous pace. Soon after my neighbor invited me over for some eggnog last week so that I could admire her Christmas tree, I figured it was as good a time as any to start working on my New Years resolutions. The list started out with a tone of familiarity: Do 30 minutes of cardio a day (you guys, that one has been at the top of the list since 1986). Drink only three glasses of wine per week (hahahahahaha!). No carbs after 12 noon. Wake up BEFORE 12 noon. And the list goes on you get the idea, because more than likely you have the same boring, repetitive resolutions. As I stared at my list and added to it No more diet soda. Put all the money Im saving on diet soda and wine into a jar so that I can go on a Caribbean cruise where I dont drink diet soda or wine. I suddenly realized, with the New Year just five weeks away (yikes!), that life is short. For some, its far too short. So I scrapped my list and started a new one. Im calling it: Things to Do BEFORE 2016 Eat an extra helping of stuffing and TWO slices of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving with whipped cream (on the pie, I mean; not on the stuffing). Dont stress the holiday dcor. Its a tree, there are some lights. Our living room is not Rockefeller Center in New York City. Get the cardio in, but only if its fun walks with good friends and it includes laughter and conversation. Go to the holiday parties. Go to all the holiday parties. Throw a party! Watch the original versions of Its A Wonderful Life, Miracle On 34th Street and The Little Drummer Boy. While watching the above movies, drink wine. Buy some really expensive gourmet cheese, because life is too short for cheap cheese. Dont even think about sending out Christmas cards. Its never happened, its not going to happen. Find the peace in notsending out Christmas cards. Go on Pinterest and do some tattoo shopping while drinking wine and eating expensive cheese. See as many plays as I can. Theres so much theater happening in our area. Can I see at least five shows before the end of the year? Im going to try. And last, but not least: Sparkle Every. Single. Day. Resolving to make the most of whats left of this year sounds like a lot more fun than a bunch of empty promises for next year. Lets celebrate 2015 while we still have (a wee bit of) time. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

They had spectacularly successful careers in the insurance industry they had wonderful houses on barrier islands and good health and unimpeachable security in their retirements all while the country waged war in Iraq and Afghanistan, where less than 1 percent of the American population served. But in their retirements, the Trippes and the Penders refused to remain comfortable not with those young Americans coming home uncomfortable themselves, not only stamped with the label, Disabled Veteran, but remaining unemployed in significantly greater percentages than most of the rest of the American workforce. This story also begins with a group of young men and women bearing various names who may be disabled vets, but who are also talented and willing. The Trippes and the Penders seized on those qualities. Together, they founded a new nonprofit enterprise they called DVIC Disabled Veterans Insurance Careers.

MONEY & INVESTINGObesity epidemic sparks investment recommendationsSometimes in life, you experience something profound in the most unlikely of places. Recently, for me, this occurred on the Carnival Sunshine cuise ship. I was taking my family on an eight day Caribbean cruise and just sat down with my wife on the Lido deck when I looked around and noticed something very disturbing. All around me, almost every single person was either significantly overweight or obese. Same thing at dinner, the majority of guests were obese. Most were in wheelchairs or had walkers or even oxygen tanks to help them breathe. So on the last night of the cruise, after a few cocktails, I asked one of the bartenders if this was the norm. He said that he had been working for Carnival for more than seven years and each year he noticed that guests were more overweight and more sick each year. So why am I bringing this up in a money column? The answer may surprise you. The definition of obesity is a body mass index of 30 or higher. That means that for an average person who is 5-feet9-inches, if that individual weighs more than 203 pounds, he or she is obese. In the U.S., it is estimated that two-thirds of the population is overweight and one-third of those are obese. In many minority populations, that percentage is significantly higher. Even more disturbing, one in three children are also obese. The causes of this phenomenon are well known lack of exercise, too much sugar/processed foods in our diets and larger portion sizes. But regardless of the cause, the effects are starting to have far-reaching consequences for our society and economy. It is a fact that obese people are more sick than people of normal weight. Obesity has resulted in 70 percent more diabetes diagnoses in the last 20 years. Heart disease kills more Americans than any other cause and obesity is the leading risk factor. Being significantly overweight dramatically increases risks of cancer, depression and respiratory disease as well. Obviously, health issues are devastating to the people who are affected by them as well as their families. But there are economic consequences as well that impact us all. Harvards School of Public Health recently estimated that more than 20 percent of all medical expenses today are a result of obesity. This comes to more than $190 billion per year. And this doesnt take into account the lost productivity from these individuals not being at work. Even more significantly, health issues relating to obesity are often long-term problems that require long-term and expensive care. All of these costs are taken into account by insurance companies when determining all of our monthly premiums. It should therefore be no surprise when the largest insurance company in the U.S., UnitedHealth, announced just last week that it is considering exiting Obamacare. And I believe this is just the first shoe to drop. Up until recently, a big worry people in their 30s and 40s had was that they would not have a retirement in the future because there would not be enough working people compared to those drawing on Social Security and that the fund would dry up because of this. In the future, a much bigger problem will be that there are not enough well people compared to sick people to have any type of affordable health care. This is already starting to happen and many predict a vicious cycle is beginning. As more people require more expensive health care because of obesity, premiums rise. As premiums rise, people who are healthy drop out of insurance plans because they cant afford the premiums and dont feel they need insurance given their good health. As insurance companies have more and more sick people on their rosters, they are forced to raise premiums even more and the cycle continues. There is clearly no easy solution to our countys obesity problem so I wont even attempt to propose one here. However, as an investor, there are some recommendations I will pass along given this nations health issues. Ive invested heavily (pardon the pun) in health-care stocks and more specifically generic drug companies and medical REITs, both of which have done extremely well over the past several years. I believe they will continue to do well. I am definitely not bullish on insurance company stocks, which I believe will be caught between a rock and hard place between rising costs and political pressures to keep premiums low. I would also not want to invest in companies that make most of their income from processed foods, as I believe either government or society will take action to limit these goods in the future. And finally, if you are reading this column and struggling with obesity, please reach out and get help. Obesity thankfully is a curable disease that can be treated. But you have to take that first step.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015 a program that would eventually provide disabled veterans with decent, well-paid careers in the insurance industry by giving them intense training, certification and jobs, at no cost to them. Donors and benefactors help pay the $25,000 cost required to put each veteran through the challenging course and enter the industry, says Gary Bryant, a retired Army lieutenant colonel who manages the program. Were looking for three criteria, he explains: a vet with a disability at some level (Mr. Bryant, for example, has a 20 percent disability as rated by the V.A.); a strong desire to have a career; and he or she has to be able to communicate well in writing and on the phone. Business experience? Unnecessary, since the training is both bookish and hands-on, as well as intense. College degree? Also unnecessary, although most or all of the veterans in the program are studying for degrees or planning to do so.Who they areMarine Corps and Afghanistan war veteran Jordan Hess, 24, who will complete the intense six-month program to be a certified insurance professional with now significant prospects in January, describes the purpose of DVIC this way: This program is for anybody who has been found disabled in any way thats service connected, by the Department of Veteran Affairs. The program is trying to take people who have given up their ability to be the same person they were before they joined, and give back to them to recognize that they gave up these things in service to the country. Such people include both Paul Dunaway and Nelson Diaz, currently finishing the program with Mr. Hess. Both were enlisted Army soldiers when they did long tours in the war zones. Mr. Dunaway, now 28 and a Florida native, has lower lumbar issues, PTSD, hearing loss and chronic migraines. He offers that information matter-of-factly, with no tone of complaint. So does Mr. Diaz, 30, a native of Puerto Rico who served in the 3rd mechanized infantry division, 164th battalion in 2005, when he was 19. It was one hell of an experience, I wont lie, he recalls. His disabilities didnt force him out of the service, although they may have changed his duty status. Instead, he worried about his mother, a V.A. nurse who knew too well what could happen. It was rough for my mom, so I had to make a decision. Shes the only person I have shes my family, Mr. Diaz says. So he left the Army and found good fortune in the form of DVIC. They all say that. I just got real lucky, Mr. Dunaway admits. My social worker with the V.A. one day said, I got this email about this program, you might want to check it out.OriginsThat was at the end of last year, and it was a long time coming. Although the do-gooders founded DVIC in 2011, it really started when they stepped out of their many-year vocations two years before that, after selling their company to a big bank prominent in the eastern United States and Texas. Oswald Trippe & Co. (an insurance firm based in Fort Myers and Cleveland) was acquired by BB&T bank in 2009, and Jim Pender was chairman of the Oswald Company out of Cleveland, my partners, explains Mr. Trippe. They were longtime friends. So Jim and his wife, Kathy, and my wife Gay the four of us were thinking about what we could do of a meaningful nature, post retirement. Both Gary and Gay had worked the Florida end of the company together for decades; Jim Pender, in turn, had almost 50 years in the business. It wasnt something they had to do, acknowledges Mr. Diaz with a note of admiration They laid down a plan and a program using the age-old wisdom of compassionate realists: work with what you have, use what you know, and do what you can. Mr. Trippe admits that it was slow going at first. They had to create a sound business plan; register with the IRS as a 501(c)(3); marshal a reputable and energetic board of directors; hire a highly motivated fireball in president and CEO Gary Bryant; and then fundraise, fundraise, fundraise. Now, their nonprofit adventure has finally taken off. Insurance is probably not the first thing most of them imagined when they left the service. No one dreams theyre going to go into insurance when theyre a kid, says Mr. Hess, who enlisted at 18, went to boot camp at Parris Island then served four years with the Second Marine Division, including a tour in Afghanistan and another in Romania. Now as a veteran, he has damage to both knees and permanent hearing loss. Hes also the veteran of an experience he loathed unemployment for a few months. That adds to his appreciation of the program, he says. Every one I know in this program loves it even if they never considered insurance before. Its challenging work with no downside, although getting used to sitting at a desk all day when youve led a life that isnt sedentary takes some getting used to. But the work is never boring. It takes mental acuity. Mr. Hess thoughtful and articulate, without an ounce of regret in his tone grew up in a career Navy family. He intends to earn a college degree online and in evening classes at the same time he begins work, following the completion of his insurance training in January, he says.Vets can be living anywhereFour other disabled veterans have been down that road before with DVIC, and are now doing well. Members of the first class, they completed the intensely hands-on training program last year, says Mr. Bryant. The course is designed by the National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research, the industry leader in adult education and continuing education, and it includes work with major companies. Two of those disabled veterans did the course in Chicago, and two in Fort Myers. Three are now working for companies in Chicago and Wisconsin and one is completing his college degree this fall in Florida, before joining a company. Mr. Hess describes the course as really immersive. It tends to make up for the fact that we dont have experience in the field of insurance by really giving us a complete immersion into it through web-based and live seminars, role-playing exercises, and just agency work. Were actually doing on-the-job work in an agency, and theyre giving us day-to-day operations experience. Theyre showing us how to get into the groove, how to be part of an agency, what to expect when we graduate. The first graduates have now taken up not just jobs, says Mr. Bryant, but lucrative careers. Such an opportunity is an extraordinary gift from people who didnt have to give in the first place one that recalls the 19th century English proverb: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Both the Trippe family and the Penders had personal experience that informed their choice of post-retirement action, too. My older brother had cerebral palsy; he was challenged physically and mentally, explains Mr. Trippe. And the Fenders had a son seriously injured in a boating accident so their family was also touched by a member with disability. It led both families to ask this question: How do we work with individuals with a disability in a great industry like insurance? Because this is what we know, Mr. Trippe recalls. As it turned out, a doctor friend working at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., became privy to their passion and suggested disabled veterans of whom there are many, and many of them struggling to find work. But DVIC hopes to counter that with increasing effect over time. We have six vets in our program now three in Fort Myers, two in Kansas and one in Austin, Texas, he notes. So that will be 10 weve put through, by January. It comes down to this: the more that people pitch in and help, the more that these deserving, disabled veterans can get a leg up.

It was once one of the worlds biggest manufacturing operations, with a train line running through it, and was the worlds largest piano company as well. The Jasper Corp., which made electronics for organs, bought the piano company in 1959, and later branched out into furniture. Today, based in Jasper, Indiana, Im a maker of office and hospitality furnishings, such as desks, cubicle systems, dressers, fabric wall panels, chairs and vanities. I spun off my electronics division in 2014. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Protect YourselfTroublemakers and thieves are out there waiting for you to make a careless error. Here are some tips that can help you protect yourself. Protect your computers security. Use anti-virus software, firewalls and passwords to guard your privacy. Use a secured Wi-Fi network at home, and be careful entering passwords and accessing financial sites over open Wi-Fi networks, such as at a coffeehouse. When shopping online, favor trusted, established retailers, and enter personal information on Web pages only where the sites address begins with https, not just http. Be smart about passwords. Dont use the same one all over, and avoid passwords that are easy to guess, such as your pets names, childrens names or birth dates. Ideally use a combination of upperand lowercase letters, numbers and symbols. Shred any documents that have personal or financial info on them, such as your Social Security number (SSN), birth date or account numbers. When asked for your SSN, be sure the requester really needs it. Some other identifying number might suffice. Dont have your SSN printed on your checks. Dont regularly carry your Social Security card or other important papers on you. Ignore any unsolicited calls or emails asking for personal information. Review all monthly statements for signs of transactions you didnt make. (You might even stumble upon some you did make but can stop, such as recurring charges for services you no longer need or use.) Opt out of all pre-approved credit card offers by calling 888-567-8688. Identity thieves may be able to use these to get credit cards in your name. Dont let mail accumulate outside if youre out of town. Protect yourself from disasters, too, by keeping emergency copies of your important documents in sealed plastic bags or in a fireproof safe. Store a set (perhaps originals) in a safety deposit box. In one or two safe places, keep a copy of your household inventory, on paper, in photos or on video.Make it hard for trouble to find you. Patience Paid OffIn December 1967, at my father-in-laws suggestion, my wife and I purchased 10 shares of stock in AT&T for $67 per share, costing us almost $700. In todays dollars, adjusted for inflation, that would amount to almost $4,800 a rather significant sum. A few months later, my cousin also bought shares. My wife and I kept our shares, putting the dividends we received into savings or into more stock in other blue chip companies. My cousin, however, felt that he was not gaining enough from his investment in AT&T and sold his shares three years later, putting the proceeds into a savings account. I think we did better than he did. P.S., Mansfield, ConnecticutThe Fool Responds: AT&T has been a solid long-term investment for patient investors, though it has hardly been a stable enterprise. Over the years it got broken up, and following that, there were many mergers between the Baby Bells, and AT&T ended up largely reassembled. Not standing still, AT&T has recently bought DirecTV. Interest from savings accounts, over the long run, will pale next to the growth of the stock market and the dividends it often kicks out. Patience is important, though, as the overall market and individual stocks can go through periods of decline or stagnation. Biotechnology PromiseWith a market value recently near $65 billion, Biogen (Nasdaq: BIIB) is a biotech giant. Its stock has slumped lately, due to disappointing second-quarter earnings and an overall beat-down of biotech stocks, giving interested investors a cheaper entry price. Biogens top seller is its multiple sclerosis (MS) drug Tecfidera, sales of which have been growing briskly, but more slowly than many had expected. Three of Biogens MS drugs (Avonex, Tysabri and Fampyra) experienced year-over-year sales declines in the second quarter. On the other hand, Biogens pipeline features MS drug daclizumab, which could generate billions of dollars for Biogen if approved, and an Alzheimers drug, aducanumab. Seemingly promising treatments for Alzheimers disease have flopped in the past, but if one earns approval, it will likely prove quite profitable. An anti-LINGO drug also has the potential to be a blockbuster because it attacks MS in a different way than current therapies do. Biogen is also aiming to profit via label expansions for MS drugs Tysabri and Tecfidera and blood cancer drug Gazyva getting the already approved drugs sanctioned for new treatments. With ample cash, it can also buy other companies promising drugs. It takes years for drugs to move through clinical trials, and FDA approval is never guaranteed. Still, theres a lot for patient investors to be hopeful about with Biogen. (The Motley Fool has recommended Biogen.) I trace my roots to an 1851 glass company. In 1879 I developed a glass bulb for Thomas Edisons new electric lamp. I introduced Pyrex heat-resistant glass in 1915 and in 1947 invented a process to mass-produce TV picture tubes. Ive made massive mirrors for many major telescopes. Im based in New York and my offerings include damage-resistant cover glass for smartphones and tablets; optical fiber and wireless technologies; products that accelerate drug discovery and manufacturing; and emissions-control products for cars, trucks and off-road vehicles. I rake in about $10 billion annually and employ some 35,000 people worldwide. Who am I? (Answer: Corning) Dividend MattersQShould I sell some or all of my low-dividend-yield companies and buy more of the high-yield ones? E.E., Corn Brook, IndianaAHigh yields can be enticing, as theyll generate lots of dollars. But companies with low or no dividend payments can also be solid performers. A company with no dividend may have more pressing uses for its excess cash than paying it out to shareholders, such as if its investing in further growth by building more factories, hiring more people or buying more advertising. Meanwhile, among companies that do pay dividends, the dividend growth rate matters a lot. A 2 percent yield can be more attractive than a 3 percent one if the company has been upping its payouts significantly in recent years. If so, that dividend could quadruple over a decade, while the once-higher dividend, if it grows more slowly, may not even double. Consider that while both Clorox and Boeing recently had yields of 2.5 percent, Cloroxs five-year average dividend growth rate was 7 percent, while Boeings was 17 percent.

M.L., Eastover, North CarolinaAThe long-term capital gains tax rate, which applies to assets held for more than a year, is currently 15 percent for most people. Short-term gains, from stocks held a year or less, are taxed at your ordinary income tax rate, which can approach 40 percent but is 25 percent for most of us.

REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY B12 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015NABOR numbers indicate a busy season to comeBroker analysts reviewing the latest market report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors say it displays familiar trends that set the stage for a busy winter season in real estate. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). The singlefamily home market is continuing its pattern of stabilization, Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll Inc. says. Except for central Naples, where the single-family home inventory decreased 17 percent, inventories in all other geographic areas rose, she adds. Unlike the condominium market inventory, which dropped 7 percent, inventory in the single-family home market increased 4 percent overall in October, from 2,128 homes in October 2014 to 2,210 in October 2015. In North Naples, the number rose 14 percent, from 571 homes in October 2014 to 650 homes this year. Single-family home inventory in the $500,000 to $1 million price segment rose 20 percent overall, from 531 homes in October 2014 to 637 homes in October 2015. The report also shows an upswing in activity in the Immokalee/Ave Maria area. Single-family home inventory in this area increased the highest percentage among all the geographic areas NABOR tracks, going up 24 percent, from 17 homes in October 2014 to 21 homes in October 2015. The area also had the highest increase in singlefamily home median closed price, going up 46 percent, from a median closed price of $151,000 in the 12 months ending October 2014 to $220,000 in the 12 months ending October 2015. Ms. Carroll says the newest numbers dont reflect the typical supply-anddemand scenario. For example, the median closed price of single-family homes in the $2 million and above price segment rose 15 percent in the 12 months ending October 2015, she says, yet the inventory SEE NABOR, B16 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________800 LAmbiance Circle, #207; LAmbiance in Pelican Bay COURTESY PHOTOS

Supply and demand in the Coquina Sands, Moorings and Park Shore neighborhoods is nearly balanced if you include new construction, she adds, while the same market sector including new construction in Old Naples is oversupplied. A balanced market occurs when there is between five to seven months of inventory. A sellers market occurs when there is less than five months of inventory; a buyers market occurs when there is more than seven months of inventory. The October report indicates a 4.63month supply of inventory. Average days on market increased 3 percent, from 71 days in October 2014 to 73 days in October 2015. Coco Waldenmayer, a managing broker at John R. Wood Properties, says buyers interested in purchasing a single-family home near the beach will experience some challenges in the coming months. Anyone looking for a single-family home under $2 million in the Naples beach area will find most of the remaining properties are ready for tear down, she says. However, she adds, there are condominiums available west of U.S. 41 in a broad range of prices. Read the full report at naplesarea.com. NABORFrom page 12 Chicago has some of the best visual architecture in the world, from Frank Lloyd Wright homes to high-rise penthouses with views of the city and Lake Michigan. This duplex penthouse at the edge of the mouth of the Chicago River opens to the lake and has downtown neighbors including The Trump Tower, NBC, Navy Pier, art galleries, great restaurants and even a beach. Views of the lake and the city skyline are dramatic around the clock, and whenever theres an excuse for fireworks, one couldnt ask for a better perch for viewing. Features include in-unit basketball and squash courts, a 500-gallon hot tub with huge city views and a 67-foot wraparound terrace to take in the fresh lake breezes. Completed in 2010, the 9,300-square-foot residence with three bedrooms and four baths lends itself to elegant entertaining on a grand or intimate scale. Curved walls, 21-foot ceilings and a chefs kitchen with a birds-eye view of the lake are just a part of the glamour.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSLearning how to bare fangs My poet friend Miguel says, In dating, you have to have fangs. Hes always talking like that, in metaphors. Fangs, I agreed. I could use some of those. People are always telling me Im too nice. In dating and elsewhere, this softness gets me in trouble. How much better would my life be if I had an intimidating grin? Instead of shrinking from conflicts, Id bare my teeth. Instead of apologizing, Id growl. Instead of running away, Id stand and fight. How do you get fangs? I asked Miguel. He shrugged enigmatically. You just have to grow them. So I started picturing myself with a fine set of pointed incisors. Mine were delicate but deadly, a very ladylike pair. Charming and also threatening. When a date cancelled last minute, I didnt pout and act wounded. I have fangs, I thought. When another date made an offhand comment at dinner Im a hot mess, I said after dropping a green bean in my lap; Who says youre hot? he replied I refused to let his words cut me. I have fangs, I thought. Of course, some people dont need to invent sharp eyeteeth. Theyre born with them. These are the people who make the rest of us cower. Last week, I pulled into a gas station just as a young man drove into the same row of pumps. He steered his scuffed Impala all the way forward, nose to nose with my Fiat, and scowled at me through the windshield as if I had driven in the wrong way. I forgot that I had fangs, and I raised my hands in a weak little gesture and mouthed, What? with the kind of smile that usually gets me out of trouble. He glared back. His naked aggression socked me, and I slunk to the pumps and back to my car without looking at him again. I have milk teeth, I thought. Its not foolproof, this trick, but imagining fangs is a good exercise for someone like me. Because, the truth is, I am afraid of everything. Im afraid of getting on a plane. Im afraid of eating dinner by myself. Im afraid of wearing the wrong shoes. Im afraid the best and most beautiful parts of my life have already passed. Im afraid I'll be an old woman living in this house by myself, suffocated by loneliness, wondering why I never got married again. Im afraid of so many things, too many things. But I am also stubborn. And I refuse to let that fear keep me from trying, again and again and again, to live the kind of life I want. I am soft, its true, and I am also too nice. I let myself be vulnerable in circumstances where I know better, and I am easily hurt. This is fundamental to who I am, as intractable as the color of my eyes or the freckles on my skin. But now I have fangs. They dont make me invincible, Im finding, and they certainly dont make me fearless. But they make me a little more willing to take on the world. And sometimes thats all we need.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015 Funniest Women on the Planet (a list that included Tina Fey and Amy Poehler), and stand-up comic Lewis Black calls her the funniest comic in America, bar none. Shes continually on the move, doing 300 shows a year. She travels so much that, by her calculation, over the past two and a half decades, shes never spent more than two consecutive weeks in one place. The plain-speaking, shoot-from-thehip comic is a native Missourian, born and raised in a suburb of St. Louis. She now calls Los Angeles home, though she also has a farm in the Midwest. I have an Are you f**king kidding me? kind of attitude, she says. So some people think Im from New York (or) from Boston. Her humorous incredulity has taken her far. Her biography states shes performed on nearly every late night show ever made, (with Jay) Leno, (David) Letterman, Conan (OBrien), (Craig) Ferguson and most recently in 2015 on the new The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. She was nominated for a 2014 American Comedy Award for Best Concert Comic, and Madigan Again, her hourlong special (her third) was named one of iTunes Best Comedy Albums of 2013. She has released four CDs, two DVDs and has starred in two HBO specials, three Comedy Central specials and five CMT Salute to the Troops specials with Ron White. A top three finalist in Season Two of NBCs Last Comic Standing, Ms. Madigan was the only comedian not challenged by the others. (Comedians would have to say, I think Im funnier than and then name one of the other comics in the competition. The most-challenged comic would then pick one of his or her challengers and go head-to-head with them, with the loser leaving the show.) No one, no one challenged Ms. Madigan. Probably because they all knew she was funnier and they would lose. Though she didnt win the contest, she did return to Last Comic Standing three seasons later as a judge. Shes gone on USO tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and headlined at the Mirage in Las Vegas.Florida and golfShes no stranger to Florida. Though her parents live in Missouri, they winter in Florida, Ms. Madigan has revealed in her stand-up: My parents are in Florida, where all Midwest people over the age of 70 are told to report, in the winter. Her parents lived in The Villages, a central Florida retirement place so big it has its own post office and zip code. It is the largest over55 gated community in the world. Residents use golf carts to get around. She was in Florida doing some gigs, and planned to visit her parents for a few days. Her mother informed her she couldnt stay with them, because The Villages has a rule that no one under the age of 55 can spend the night on the property. So, at 47, I am once again going to have a fake ID? she told an audience, incredulously. She insisted on staying. Whats the worst thats going to happen? she asked. Theres an old guy in a golf cart and a flashlight who does bed checks like in Hogans Heroes? Im not scared. I can kick anyones ass there. You know why? Because I still have my real knees. But when asked, Ms. Madigan tells Florida Weekly her parents have been freed from The Villages. She bought them a condo in Sarasota. It all depends on what youre into, she says. Its very activity-based. I think it bothered my parents that theres not a lot of kids around. My dad said, I felt like we were out of society, that we were living in this fabricated society with no teens, no little kids. Her parents, who had seven children, have lots of grandchildren. Theyre used to a lot of youth around, she says. About The Villages, she adds: Its like Cocoon there. I played in their Tuesday golf league. It was like a show, like all the actors (from Cocoon) came out. One hundred or 200 old people bolted to the golf carts. It was like an army of 60-, 70-, 80-somethings, all running to their golf carts. Shes not planning on golfing while in Florida this time. (She plays Stuart Dec. 2 and Coral Springs Dec. 4) Its just too difficult to travel with her clubs, she says, noting that airlines have lost them twice so far this year. They eventually find them, and try to ship them to her, but by then shes already moved on to a couple other cities, doing shows. She conducts her comedy career like golf, she says. I dont care what anybody else is doing, what anybody else is shooting, she says. Im going to keep shooting up the middle, and then Im going to have a score when Im done. Its not an interactive sport; it doesnt matter (what others are doing.) Keep your eyes focused ahead, rather than sideways.Point of viewMs. Madigan tends to write comedy for herself, though on occasion shes written for others. Shes written and produced for Lewis Blacks Root of All Evil on Comedy Central and for Gary Shandlings Emmy monologues. Ive written for people I like, she says. I dont want to do it for a living. If theres somebody I like, I hear their voice, they have a very specific voice that I know I can write for. Shes not good at writing generic jokes anyone could deliver, she says, adding that if Mr. Shandling and Mr. Black sat her down and told her to write 10 minutes of golf jokes, shed have to know who was going to say them. To me, thats the most important part. Its the point of view. Whos telling this joke? Is it Gary Shandling or Lew? Gary Shandlings jokes go back on himself, hes usually the victim. And Lews usually go out into the world. Gary will say: Im screwed up. Lew will say: The worlds screwed up. And I will say: This is all idiotic, everybody is screwed up. Its the point of view, more than the actual joke. She had a chance to write for The Tonight Show, she says, but I dont want to sit in a writers room doing jokes by committee. I know what Jay (Leno) was going to do, a 10-minute monologue on the news. But sometimes I dont think the news is funny that day. Shed rather be up on stage herself, telling audiences her own stories in her own inimitable way.Mothers and politiciansShe jokes about her parents while on stage. She impersonates her mother. What would it be like with her mother, Kathy Griffins mother and Margaret Chos mother all in one room? Margarets mom takes the cake. She might be the worst, she muses. With age, its just easier to tease them all. My dads good for a good 20 minutes, too. They like it. None of them mind. She also talks politics, though with the material current candidates are providing, its almost too easy. Lew and I were saying that you can just say peoples names onstage, and the audience laughs. It is too easy. I use the analogy of Survivor. When (Republican candidate) Bobby Jindal dropped out, I tweeted that hed been voted off the island. There are too many now, its too crazy. Once it gets narrowed down, the crazies will fall. Theyll start dropping. You cant sustain it that long. I used to be mad our election process is that long, but now its good, because youre seeing whos really serious and who can make it. If youre authentic and smart, you can make it through the whole process. Her strategy as a comedian is to Let it play out and let it go. Itll still be easy to make fun of whoevers left. Adding to the absurdity: Fellow comedian Ron White recently announced his candidacy for president. He can have my vote, absolutely, she says. Any chance of her becoming his running mate? No, she says, hes already named comedian Josh Blue, a former winner of Last Comic Standing, as his vice president. Theyd want me to become secretary of state, she says. Because Rons White and Josh is Blue, and I have red hair, so itd be Red, White and Blue. A comedy trifecta. You cant get any more patriotic or silly than that.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 new yearround service to Cancun, Mexico FLORIDA WRITERSValiant artist struggles to open U.S. doors for Hitlers prey The Muralist by B.A. Shapiro. Algonquin Books. 352 pages. Hardcover, $26.95. B.A. Shapiros The Muralist dazzles and excites with its penetrating look at the New York art scene during the Depression, the situation in Europe for Jews seeking to flee Nazi persecution and murder, and the present-time life of a young woman working for a major art auction house. The plot is carefully managed through two alternating time lines: One begins in 1939 and is focused on an obscure Jewish artist, Alize Benoit; the other follows todays Danielle Abrams, Alizes great niece. It becomes Danielles obsession to discover Alizes fate. Alize is an American citizen who lived for many years in France, returning to the United States in 1937 at the age of 19 already a well-schooled artist. When readers meet her in 1939, she is part of a circle of young artists who are creating a great new American art form Abstract Expressionism. The others include Jackson Pollack, Lee Krasner, Mark Rothko and, on occasion, Dutch-born Willem de Kooning. These and other artists challenge and inspire one another while living in dire poverty, surviving on commissions received from a special branch of the Works Progress Administration that buys paintings for display in public buildings. But the WPA Federal Art Project favored representational rather than abstract art, handicapping the chances for this groups experimentation being accepted. When sporadic messages from her relatives describe their deteriorating situation in France and urge her to help, Alize, who feels a deep and constant responsibility for saving them, becomes a political activist. Her target is Breckinridge Long, the man in charge of administering immigration controls, whose personal mission was to block oppressed Europeans (and especially Jews) from getting the necessary visas. He was only too successful. Alize tries to engage Eleanor Roosevelt to assist in this effort, an effort that includes politically charged art that Alize develops to raise public awareness of the Jewish plight. Impressed by the power of Picassos Guernica, she decides to create a mural for a forthcoming exhibition. With time running out, she enlists her artist cohorts to help her with the project. Facing many frustrations and with her physical and mental health severely declining, Alize disappears in 1940. The 2015 timeline follows Danielles curiosity about her vanished great aunt. This curiosity is spurred into action by some mysterious paintings, fragments of a larger work, that she finds hidden in envelopes pasted to the back of paintings transmitted to Christies, the famous and influential auction house where Danielle works. Interviews, database searches and other research slowly reveal an impression of Alizes life and artistic mission. Still, Danielles struggle to establish the historical Alize and to discover if she is alive is frustrated until she makes a last-ditch effort that takes her to France. The brilliance of the book is in Ms. Shapiros ability to breathe life into a highly unusual fictional character who struggles under the circumstances of her past, her present situation, her loyalties, her fears and her diminishing capacities. The author also brings to life the actual people who surrounded Alize in her Greenwich Village life. Scenes that bring Eleanor Roosevelt and Alize face to face are amazing and compelling, however improbable. This provocative book includes insights about artistic rebellion and revolution: What does it take to make a major breakthrough in art? How does this work for individuals and for groups? Related issues include the question of arts role as a change agent. Ms. Shapiros action scenes describing an artwork being created, accompanied by the artists thoughts and emotions, have spectacular authenticity. The Muralist, a historical novel about two determined women separately fighting against the odds, is a fascinating and suspenseful read from beginning to end. Though Ms. Shapiro, whose winter home is in Bonita Springs, has had a successful publishing career going back into the 1990s, her big breakthrough with readers and critics came only recently, with The Art Forger (2013). She will be part of the local authors session at the inaugural Collier County Jewish Book Festival that takes place Wednesday, Feb. 24, in the Community Room at the Naples Daily News.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015 Whether you need a car, truck or van, Enterprise is the perfect choice. 1 800 rent-a-car enterprise.com W h Pick-up subject to geographic and other restrictions. 2015 Enterprise Rent-A-Car G00131 8/15 ARTS COMMENTARY The Seafarer stands out as must-see theaterIf you want to give yourself an early Christmas present, buy a ticket to The Seafarer, now playing at Florida Repertory Theatres ArtStage Studio Theatre (through Dec. 13). Its as close to perfection as you can get in theater: a quintet of actors at the height of their game with an ingenious script (by Conor McPherson) and insightful direction (David Edwards). The Seafarer brings you to the heights and depths of emotion and turns you inside out. Producing artistic director Robert Cacioppos been wanting to stage this dark comedy for a few years, and after seeing it, I can say that its been well worth the wait. Its easy to understand why it was nominated for Best Play for both Tony and Olivier Awards. Its humorous and moving, but also haunting. On the surface, its about a group a group of drunken, middle-aged Irishmen playing poker on Christmas Eve. Sharky (James Clarke) has returned home from a chauffeuring job to spend Christmas with his blind brother, Richard (a wonderfully curmudgeonly Graham Smith.) Sharkys newly sober and trying to stay on the wagon. Best friend Ivan (Craig Bockhorn), a hapless kind of guy whos well-intentioned but seems perpetually befuddled by life, has been checking in on Richard in Sharkys absence. They are long-time friends and drinking buddies. Mr. Bockhorn does such a skillful job portraying Ivan that we instantly like him. When we first meet him, his hairs disheveled, his clothes askew. Dreadfully hungover, hes misplaced his glasses, and hes not too sure where his car is, either. Like the rest of the characters like all of us hes stumbling through life, trying his best, but not always quite succeeding. Sharky and Richard are living in a shambles of a house, with cracks and holes in the wall, easy chairs that have seen better days, and empty bottles everywhere. Its definitely a bachelors lair. Jordan Moores designed the set in such a way that we feel were actually in the room among them, invisible witnesses to what takes place. The kitchen, bathroom and steps to the front door are all in various corners of the space, beyond the audiences chairs. In an impulse of Christmas cheer, Richards invited Nicky (William Zielinski) to stop by and play cards. He does, bringing an unexpected guest with him, Mr. Lockhart (Peter Thomasson). And, though the others think theyre just playing a friendly game of cards, Sharky winds up playing poker with the devil, with his very soul at stake. Mr. Thomasson is truly terrifying as he exudes evil along with his arrogance and slickness. (Todd O. Wrens lighting greatly assists here too, in setting the tone.) Though unerringly polite on the surface, he torments the others. He knows their weaknesses, their guilt, their self-doubt, and thats where he pokes them, again and again. His eyes are piercing, his very demeanor chilling. His description of hell is unlike anything youve ever heard preached in a church: a place of complete and total isolation, trapped in a suffocating coffin a thousand miles under the cold, dark sea, forever alone, unable to sleep and unable to die. Whether you believe in the existence of God and the Devil and Heaven and Hell is immaterial for enjoying The Seafarer; they exist in this play, and very convincingly so. Mr. Clarke is an Everyman, struggling and failing, struggling and failing. He displays, often without words, his hopes, his regrets, his fear, his resignation. Hes accused of always making a mess of things, and it does seem that hes throwing his life away. Mr. Zielinski plays his neighbor, Nicky, the man who is now living with Sharkys ex-girlfriend. Hes brash, a big-talker with big schemes. And Mr. Smiths Richard is a complex portrayal. Hes disagreeable and argumentative, self-pitying, yet full of cheer and optimistic, even proclaiming at one point, I believe Sharky has potential, I believe he can change. The Seafarer has been compared to Its a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol, though its certainly not as chipper as the former nor as moralistic as the latter. It contains more humor than you think it might, though its not what youd consider family fare. And, like all masterful plays, Mr. McPhersons script contains layers upon layers. He skillfully weaves in the themes of light and darkness throughout, and also gives us various kinds of blindness: willful, spiritual and actual physical blindness. (Richard was blinded in an accident, and Nicky dons sunglasses while playing poker an affectation to be sure, but also a commentary on his sight.) The Seafarer is a great modern Irish fable, both realistic and fantastic. You leave the theater feeling wrung out, yet hopeful, as though youve been on a long, treacherous journey. Its one of the best things Florida Rep has produced: gripping, powerful and haunting. h t b i f h nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Seafarer>> When: Through Dec. 13 >> Where: ArtStage Studio Theatre of Florida Repertory Theatre, downtown Fort Myers >> Cost: $45 >> Information: 332-4488 or oridarep.org From left: Actors Graham Smith, William Zielinski and Craig Bockhorn star in The Seafarer at the Florida Rep.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Family situations continue to thrive. Business associations also improve. Some holiday plans might have to be shifted a bit. Be flexible. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Avoid any influence of negative energy in this weeks aspect by not allowing small problems to grow into large ones. Work them out immediately. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A friend might need advice on how to deal with a challenge to his or her moral values. And who better than you to give the honest answer? Good luck. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel that you have all the answers right now. But it might be wise to listen to other ideas before you decide to close the lid on other possibilities. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bovines give and expect loyalty, so it might not be easy to reconcile with someone you feel let you down. Why not ask a neutral party to set up a clearthe-air meeting? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Anticipating the holidays with family and friends fuels your must-do Gemini energies. But try to pace yourself so youll be up for whatever comes along later. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) More background information might come through regarding a decision you expect to make. Be sure to check the source carefully before you move. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The strong, nurturing nature of the Lion comes through this week as you reach out to family and friends in need of your warm and loving support. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A relationship that has almost totally unraveled could be close to being restored with more effort on your part to be more patient and less judgmental. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your sense of fair play is strong this week, which can cause a problem with a longtime relationship. But in the end, youll know what decision to make. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might not know all the facts behind an unwelcome development, so keep that Scorpion temper in check and resist lashing out at anyone. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sense of adventure that inspires others to follow your lead. PUZZLES

Because the play is not a favorite to succeed, it is used by declarer more out of desperation than by choice. Consider the North-South spade holding in this hand. The normal way for declarer to start playing this combination is to lead a low spade toward the queen in dummy. If the queen holds the trick (marking West with the ace), declarer next returns a spade from dummy and plays low after East produces the ten or jack, hoping West started with the doubleton ace. Observe that it would be wrong for South to cover the jack or ten with the king because the king would lose to the ace and South would eventually have to lose another spade trick. This maneuver is the so-called obligatory finesse, and when the cards are favorably placed for declarer, it gains him a trick. Occasionally, the defense can invoke a countermeasure to the obligatory finesse, as in the present deal. South is declarer at four spades, and West cashes the K-A of clubs, then continues with the queen. If South is allowed to go about his business unimpeded, he will, as we have seen, lose only one trump trick and so make the contract. But if the defense functions perfectly, South can be defeated. When West leads the queen of clubs, East ruffs with the ten, even though it appears routine to discard on his partner's high club. South is helpless against this defense. He is forced to overruff with the king otherwise, he is down immediately and lead a trump toward the queen. This does him no good because West rises with the ace and returns the ten of clubs. Dummy has to follow suit, whereupon East once again trumps his partner's high club this time with the jack to secure a one-trick set.

The acting is superb, and the drama patiently develops to make this one of the best films of 2015. Rated R.The 33 1/2(Antonio Banderas, Juliette Binoche, Rodrigo Santoro) Based on real events, 33 miners are trapped underground in Chile for more than two months after a mine collapses. The performances are strong, the comic relief is welcome and the solid film honors the 33 men who endured the unthinkable situation. Rated PG-13. Spectre1/2(Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci) James Bond (Mr. Craig) learns more about his past and pursues the man (Mr. Waltz) behind all the treachery Bond has faced thus far. Its a downgrade from the last entry, Skyfall, but is salvaged by a solid ending loosely taken from The Dark Knight. Rated PG-13.Our Brand Is Crisis (Sandra Bullock, Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie) Political strategist Calamity Jane (Ms. Bullock) travels to Bolivia to assist in a presidential campaign. The story wants to make strong social points, but flounders when it should thrive. Rated R. Truth (Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, Topher Grace) CBS news legend Dan Rather (Mr. Redford) and his producer Mary Mapes (Ms. Blanchett) come under fire in 2004 after airing a story based on allegedly false documents that accused then-president George W. Bush of not fulfilling his Texas Air National Guard duties in the 1970s. Its a smart, compelling drama featuring an excellent Ms. Blanchett that also calls into question the merit and needs for journalism today. Rated R.Rock The Kasbah 1/2(Bill Murray, Kate Hudson, Leem Lubany) A down-on-his-luck music manager (Mr. Murray) discovers a female Muslim singer (Ms. Lubany) and tries to get her on Afghan Star, the Afghani version of American Idol. The story goes in a number of directions, none of them wise. Rated R. Crimson Peak (Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska) In the early 1900s, Edith (Ms. Wasikowska) is wooed by Thomas (Mr. Hiddleston), seemingly not noticing how close he is to his sister (Ms. Chastain). Its an odd gothic love story with a few ghosts thrown in for good measure, and although it looks slick and stylish, it just doesnt connect. Rated R.

ENTIRE BILL LATEST FILMSSecret in their EyesIs it worth $10? NoA murder 13 years ago. A cold case reopened. Three old friends played by Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor entwined in the investigation. A red-hot screenwriter, Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games), in his third directorial effort, backed by a solid cast and a dark, grimy L.A. backdrop. Yes, Secret In Their Eyes has all the ingredients of a top-notch murder mystery thriller. And yet it stinks. More than anything, its dull. Were supposed to be engrossed in finding the killer of Carolyn Cobb (Zoe Graham), who was district attorney investigator Jess (Ms. Roberts) teenage daughter. However, the lead investigator, Ray (Mr. Ejiofor), is so convinced that the killer is a guy named Marzan (Joe Cole) that theres no room for mystery. The story becomes a matter of catching Marzan and Marzan only, a process that is delayed by flashbacks to 13 years earlier when Ray, Jess and their colleague Claire (Ms. Kidman) first began the investigation. Theres very little in these flashbacks thats of much importance to the present, which has the end effect of bloating the running time to 111 minutes while not making the movie any more interesting. If youre like me, youll wait for (and expect) a plot twist that never comes. Maybe the killer is fellow investigator Siefert (Michael Kelly), youll think, who covers up for Marzan early on. Or maybe its good guy investigator Bumpy (Dean Norris), whom we dont know much about but is played by a big enough star (Norris was Hank on Breaking Bad) that it could happen (they wouldnt give a big reveal to a nobody actor, after all). Or the killer could even be the district attorney (Alfred Molina) who insists on looking the other way with the murder investigation because he deems a possibly Al-Qaeda infested mosque in L.A. to be more important than a dead teenager. Perhaps you wouldnt spend so much time thinking about possible plot twists if there were more going on in the main storyline, but its all woefully slow. If Secret In Their Eyes has a fatal mistake, its this: It takes what couldve been a compelling whodunit and ruins any would-be tension by giving us only one person who couldve dunit and spending the entire movie chasing that one guy. Unless your name is Mad Max, a nearly two-hour chase for anyone is bound to grow tiresome. The actors do what they can with the material, but with a story like this its a thankless task. It also doesnt help that Ray is given little motivation regarding his determination to solve the case, that Jess doesnt have much to do besides look angry for most of the movie and that Claire, once a rising young attorney, is relegated to little more than a love interest in the films second half. So much more could and should have been done with each character to make them feel essential, not superfluous. Having seen Secret In Their Eyes, Im now thinking of whats worse than a murder mystery without suspense. Probably an action movie that doesnt excite (Spectre), a comedy that isnt funny (Rock The Kasbah) and/or a horror story thats never spooky (Crimson Peak). All are major film faux pas that should be unacceptable to consumers demanding quality for their hardearned dollar. a O a l i b b dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Secret In Their Eyes is a remake of the Argentinian mystery thriller El Segreto de Sus Ojos (2009), which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELThe tango was introduced in Argentina about 1902, but didnt become the latest dance craze until about 1916. It spread to Paris, the United States and Europe, and remained a favorite until the 1920s. The tango was popular in upperclass dance parlors and has gone in and out of favor. Early tango dances were very daring, and in some countries they were restricted by law. But dancing couples were among the first wind-up tin toys for children in the 1800s. Around 1916, a dancing toy with figures of a man in tails and an elegant woman in a pink dress was made by the German Gunthermann Company (1877-1965). Wind the key hidden under the womans dress, and the couple dances in random patterns. Although the toy was sold in a box labeled Tango, it is sometimes called the Waltzing Couple or the Dancing Couple. The toy, in excellent condition with the box, sold at a James Julia auction in Maine in June 2015 for $3,851. Several other dancing couple toys have been made. In the 1930s, there was a Japanese key wind 6-inch-tall celluloid toy by Masudaya. The woman has a red dress. The toy sells today for about $40. In the 1960s, a Japanese company, Tokyo Plaything Shokai, made a dancing toy for Hikari Toy Products. The figures are tin with vinyl heads and the woman has a blue dress. It sells for about $360 to $400. The idea continued, and modern dancing toys have modern clothes, the latest dances, music and electronic controls. Q: I have a collection of Chinese mud figures and would like to know their value. Are there collectors interested in these figures? A: Mud figures are small partiallyglazed pottery figures made in China in the 20th century. They originally were made for fish tanks or planters. Most figures are of farmers, scholars, workers or merchants. Other pieces are trees, houses and similar parts of the landscape. The figures have unglazed faces and hands but glazed clothing. They were made by hand, often by members of the village where they were made. Reproductions have been made. There isnt a big market for mud figures. Price depends on size, condition and interest in the design. They sell online and at auctions for about $10 to over $100. Q: I collect memorabilia connected with movie cowboys including Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy and Tom Mix. A friend who moved here from Australia gave me his childhood collection, a box of Hopalong games and ads. None were items I have seen. Many were made in Australia. Were his movies seen in Australia? When? A: Hopalong Cassidy was a character in 28 books, starting in 1907. The character was in movies from 1934 to 1948. Sixty-six films were made. In 1948 William Boyd, the most famous star who played

Hopalong, bought the television rights to the character from the author and the producer of the Hopalong Cassidy films. He later made 52 new TV shows. That gave him the ability to license the name to hundreds of products around the world. He toured Australia in 1954 so it is not surprising that later in the 1950s Australian companies made board games, many types of candy often in collectible boxes or wrappers, Hoppy Cola (a drink), cake decorations, trading cards with pictures of Hoppy, pistols, holsters and other toys. The Hopalong Cassidy craze lasted just a few years after his 1954 tour, and Australian Hopalong items rarely are seen in the United States.

A: Credit cards, metal charge plates, phone cards and other similar collectibles that replace money are now part of the numismatic collecting hobby. The earliest paper or cardboard credit cards were issued by airline and gasoline companies in the 1920s. Early and rare charge plates and credit cards can sell for hundreds of dollars. The book Kovels Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide, as well as the free online price guide at Kovels.com, has a credit-card category with prices of credit cards that have actually sold. There also is a club, the Credit Card Collector, that publishes a monthly newsletter and can help with rarity and value information. Tip: A quilt that is not in use should be aired each year. Open it up and put it flat on the floor or a bed for a few days. A quilt that is used on a bed or hung should be taken down and rested every six months.

Kenny R., via emailA: The multitalented performer appeared in three episodes of Madam Secretary this fall playing Jane Fellows, the new Defense Intelligence Agency handler of Tim Dalys character, Henry McCord. She also wrote and recorded an album called I Do. Ms. Hennessy got her start busking in the streets of Toronto when she was 17 and says music is her first love. Q: One of my favorite actors is Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Can you tell me what he has in the works? Linda F., via emailA: Word has it that Jeffrey has just been cast for the season-six finale of The Walking Dead as (slight spoiler alert!) Negan. His role will continue into the seventh season, which AMC has already greenlighted. If you keep up with TWD graphic-novel/ comic series, then you know that the character of Negan appears in No. 100, and hes a frightening, foul-mouthed, barbwire-lacedbat-wielding murderer. There is no word yet on how hell be portrayed in the TV series, but Im thinking that Mr. Morgan has the goods to scare us plenty, even if he cant be quite as potty-mouthed as his literary counterpart. Q: I am going through some serious Outlander withdrawal, and I need any bit of news you can give me. Nina H., via emailA: Ive got a little something to tide you over: Oscar Kennedy has been cast to play young William Grey, who if youve read the books (SPOILER ALERT), you know grows up to be Lord John Grey, lifelong friend and confidante of Jamie and Claire. The 16-year-old Nottingham, England, native was featured in Starzs The White Queen and a BBC series called Hunted.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015 C33 THE DISH The Dish: Half-order of Biscuits and Gravy The Price: $5.59 The Place: Nanas Diner 5555 Golden Gate Parkway The Hours: 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. MondaySaturday, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday The Full Menu: nanasdinernaples.com The Details: One could argue that traditional biscuits and gravy is a dish that is easy to execute: Fry up some breakfast sausage, make a white sauce from the drippings, and voila! A greasyspoon favorite ready for eating. Truth be told, it takes an authentic diner that specializes in home cooking to really nail the texture in an item that can easily become a salty, gloppy mess. Nanas perfectly executes this dish in a way that delivers a velvety, peppery sauce over fluffy biscuits for a mouth feel sensation not to mention that its mighty tasty. A half order of two biscuits was more than enough. I left satisfied that I had fulfilled my daily caloric intake before 10 a.m. with an item I felt happy to have eaten. One More Thing: Nanas specializes in homey favorites and is quite an institution among those in the know. Where else in Naples rarified restaurant scene can you find old-fashioned liver and onions?

HAPPY HOUR VINOTheres nothing petite about petite sirahWines go in and out of style. One day everybodys going mad over malbec, and three months later theyre crazy for chenin blanc. Recently, petite sirah has enjoyed a well-deserved upsurge in popularity. Known as durif in other parts of the world, it was planted in California as early as 1884, and was popular during Prohibition, because it has a very thick skin, which allowed the fruit to hold up well when shipped across the country to home winemakers. Traditionally, it has been used as a blending grape, because it imparts rich color and tannic structure. While many vintners are bottling it as a single varietal, its not uncommon for them to add a bit of white wine to calm it down. Today, there are about 6,000 acres of petite sirah planted in California, with dozens of winemakers trying their hand at the varietal. As mentioned, you can expect this wine to offer deep, opaque coloration and rich, bold flavors. Typically, youll find dark berry and plum fruit, black pepper and similar spices. While its not one of the noble varietals like cabernet sauvignon or pinot noir, this wine can be delicious especially if you like big, rich wines. If youre collecting, you can probably put this in your cellar for several years because of the bold structure. Recently, we sampled through several producers interpretations of this rich, interesting wine, and heres what we discovered. Frank Family Petite Sirah Napa Valley 2012 As expected, this wine is a deep reddish-purple in the glass with a nose of rich black fruit. The tannins are very soft, and the flavors of dark plum and sweet blackberry really stand out. Theres excellent balance on the nice long finish. WW 91 $31. Earthquake Petite Sirah 2013 Another example of the purple-black color of this varietal. Mixed black fruit on the palate with surprisingly round and soft tannins. WW 89 $20. Michael David Pettit Petite 2013 Interestingly, this wine is a blend of 85 percent petite sirah and 15 percent petite verdot, which is a normal blending partner in Bordeaux wines. Inky black, with a smoky rose aroma, the flavors are rich and extracted, offering black fruit and cedar with a long, round finish. WW 91-92. An absolute steal at $14. Our other recent discoveries include: V Madrone Petite Sirah This family winery is owned by Chris Tilley, who actually grew up in Napa Valley, and his wife Pauline. They bought a socalled ghost winery about 15 years ago, and now produce cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel and a killer chardonnay. Look them up at vmadrone.com. WW 96.Ask the Wine WhispererHow many grapes does it take to make a bottle of wine? Tony B., MiamiWe call this wine math. A standard acre of grapevines normally yields about 5 tons of grapes, which turns into a bit under 800 gallons of final product. And it takes 2.4 pounds of grapes to make a 750ml (27 oz.) bottle. A single bottle holds just about four glasses, unless youre using those really big wine glasses like we do. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

Dont Forget Your Holiday Gift Cards! They Make Great Presents! CUISINE The American Gastropub amps up familiar dishes The term gastropub has not really caught on in these parts, even though the concept has. That could change if more places like The American Gastropub, or TAG, embrace the nomenclature. TAG opened in the Coconut Point mall in Estero in the space recently occupied by Meredays Brasserie (which itself was sort of a French gastropub, serving food that was rustic but refined). The American Gastropub offers this definition on its website: Gastropubs are local eating and drinking establishments that provide good food, good drinks and good company. We serve local craft beers, handcrafted cocktails, boutique wines and culinary delights at a reasonable price. Not everything we tried on a recent visit was a culinary delight, but for the most part TAG is serving distinctive, amped-up pub food in a casual but stylish setting. The dcor doesnt exactly have a theme, but the Warholesque prints of farm animals lend an artsy air to contrast the polished wood and contemporary fabrics. We were seated in a spacious and nicely cushioned crescent-shaped booth across from the bar, which was busy serving drinks through the open windows to the patio tables. Indoors was sparsely occupied at 6 p.m. on a weeknight, but it nevertheless took extra time for our drinks to find their way to the table. Desserts were slow to arrive, too. Many of the reviews I saw online mentioned service issues. The bar was out of the namesake George Dickle Tennessee Whiskey called for in the Re-Dickle-Ous cocktail ($12), so another brand was substituted. With orange simple syrup and orange bitters, it had a fruity flair and was not skimpy on the liquor. From a brief list of a half-dozen reds and half-dozen whites, I enjoyed a glass of 2013 Raymond Fabre Cuvee Pinot Noir ($7), a drier but typically French take on the varietal. Appetizers are a mix of familiar and new ideas, from chicken wings and steamed shrimp to chicken-and-waffle sliders and the slightly scary sounding Buffalo-style grouper cheeks with blue cheese aioli (an odd treatment for such a delicacy). Deviled eggs are everywhere these days, with over-the-top toppings putting a modern spin on the cocktail-party classic. We sampled three of the four versions TAG names after the compass points, and the results were mixed. South a pickled egg topped with arugula and chicken skin was surprisingly bland despite its cute pink hue; east was crowned with miniscule strips of raw tuna, yuzu and micro wasabi; the most flavorful was the west, which paired succulent bison with smoky chipotle and sweet roasted corn salsa. Overall, the garnishes were just too subtle (and micro) to achieve the wow factor that can elevate these homey classics in the right hands. And at $2 per piece thats half an egg weve had better for less. We were more impressed with the Prince Edward Island mussels ($13), which can be ordered four ways. The #TAG treatment (they like to use hashtags on the menu) was beer broth seasoned with oranges and coriander and with ground and sliced chorizo tossed in. The combination of sweet fruit and warm spices worked well with the abundant shellfish, and we sopped up the sauce with toasted bread. Even a non-mussel lover in our trio was impressed by how tender they were. Although the delivery of dishes occasionally lagged, the removal of used plates and bowls by several servers was timely and consistent. You might say the staff TAG-teamed the table. There are small and big plates to consider when it comes to the main course. An intriguing twist on pasta carbonara had pork belly instead of pancetta and a poached egg in place of the traditional whisked egg sauce. A cheeky fascination with jowls, from grouper to porker, is evident in several dishes. And then there are, of course, the ubiquitous flatbreads. From the sandwich menu we opted for the #TAG burger ($14), a custom blend of beef surprisingly vague at a time when many a gastropub brags about the pedigree of its proteins. Regardless, it was perfectly cooked medium with a noticeable crust and a juicy, pink center. The toppings were nicely balanced so you could still taste the beef, and the bacon jam added a delectable smokysalty sweetness. Skin-on fries on the side were obviously hand cut and nicely, evenly cooked. The Ketchikan rubbed salmon ($19) showed that the kitchen can handle a more delicate protein. The brownsugar-crusted fillet was just barely cooked through, sort of medium-rare, so it retained its natural juices. A succotash of corn, green beans, asparagus and zucchini showcased the fresh, crisp vegetables in their best light. But why so skimpy with the smear of delicious celery root pure on the plate? It left me wanting more. Not so the Charles Elmer short ribs ($20), which were so hearty I could barely finish them. Apparently named after the root beer baron Charles Elmer Hires, the boneless ribs were braised low and slow in the soda. The beef was melt-in-your-mouth tender, with sweet, licorice-like hints of the sassafras root the drink is made from. Sauteed broccoli rabe brought a contrasting and welcome note of bitterness. The only disappointment with this dish: The johnnycakes served beneath the short ribs were tough, dry and mealy. A similar toughness appeared in the crust of the deconstructed apple pie ($9) stuffed into a pint-size canning jar. The cinnamon ice cream was the best part of this dessert. Maybe they should stick with a constructed pie. On the other hand, I wouldnt change a thing about the perfect lemon panna cotta ($9) garnished with strips of candied zest. The American Gastropub still has some rough spots to work out, but we liked the vibe and left curious to try more of the food. #WeWillBeBack. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYFrom left: east, south and west versions of TAGs deviled eggs.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA The construction site is extremely busy at Kalea Bay, the highrise community being developed by Soave Real Estate on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. The onsite sales center is also very active as potential buyers discover what the gated, resort-lifestyle high-rise community has to offer. According to Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing, sales have been phenomenal. In just a 10-day period in early November we sold 5 residences, said Wilson. That brings our total sales volume at Kalea Bay to over $100 million. Construction on the first of five towers began earlier this summer with land clearing, followed by test pilings and then the drilling of the permanent pilings.

Im also happy to report construction is ahead of schedule, stated Wilson. That means the first tower at Kalea Bay is slated to be completed in the Summer of 2017.

Not only will they see the Gulf of Mexico, but two of the best beaches in the country. They include, Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which is ranked #9. In addition to the first towers rooftop amenities, Kalea Bay will also have a first-class clubhouse area which surely will be the recreational and social center of the community. The main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, said Wilson. It will include a clubhouse with three individual pools, a pool deck bar, an indoor/ outdoor restaurant, a snack bar and an Internet cafe. But thats not all. Nearby will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted tennis courts and 24 guest suites. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse area, to a designated Gulf beach. In addition to our first tower construction has also started at the site of the communitys clubhouse, said Wilson. The first order of business was excavating the locations of the three pools. According to Wilson, Kalea Bays main amenity area will be ready for the communitys first residents to enjoy immediately upon them moving into their new homes.

Luxury homebuyers attracted by Seaglass at Bonita Bays exceptional valueAs evidenced by the nearly $70 million in sales processed to date, luxury homebuyers continue to be attracted by the exceptional value offered at the new Seaglass at Bonita Bay high-rise tower to be built by The Ronto Group within the Bonita Bay community in Bonita Springs. Seaglass is redefining the high-rise living experience. Situated nearly 250 feet from its closest neighboring building, the 26-floor, 120-unit tower will feature fullycompleted, ready for occupancy residences with designer-selected premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Ginger Lickley of Premier Sothebys International Realty has sold five penthouse residences at Seaglass. One penthouse remains available for purchase. Seaglass simply offers an exceptional value, she said. The view corridors overlooking Estero Bay and the Gulf are exquisite. The residences are designed with the tall ceilings and open floor plans that todays homebuyers prefer. From a pure cost standpoint, the Seaglass residences are priced substantially lower than the high rise residences in Pelican Bay, Parkshore Beach, and other locations in the area. When they take into consideration the views, the fact that it is new construction with current designs, the price point, and Bonita Bays award-winning lifestyle, homebuyers recognize that Seaglass provides outstanding value. Three luxurious tower residence great room floor plans ranging from 3,353 to 3,946 total square feet are priced from just over $1 million. The spacious tower residences will include private elevator foyers, large island kitchens, three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, or three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and threeand-a-half baths, walk-in closets throughout the residence, and multiple outdoor spaces that include a gas grill. Ten-foot ceiling heights are included per plan. The spectacular penthouse residences at Seaglass are priced from $2.5 million and offer 5,158 to 5,570 total square feet with a private elevator foyer, a large great room, spacious gourmet kitchen, three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and three-and-a-half baths, or four bedrooms plus a den and four-and-a-half baths. Ceiling heights of 10-feet eightinches or 11-feet four-inches are included per plan. Several of the penthouse residences feature especially inviting expanded outdoor spaces with exceptionally large terraces with gas grills, including two private rooftop terraces that will be enjoyed by the residents of the penthouses on the buildings uppermost floor. Even given the spacious, inviting designs of the residences and their spectacular views, there is more to the unique Seaglass value proposition than the building itself. Located in close proximity to the beach, the shopping and dining venues at the Promenade and Coconut Point Mall, the Bonita Bay community offers a lifestyle that holds an appeal of its own. For homebuyers, the appeal of Seaglass extends beyond the building, said Lickley. Bonita Bay is a mature community that conveys a fresh look and is acknowledged for the beauty of its natural setting, its hiking and biking trails, the full-service marina, and the private beach park on Little Hickory Island. When you add the amenities available through membership in the Bonita Bay Club, such as the five golf courses, the clubhouse and dining venues, the tennis facility, and the new Lifestyle Center, buyers appreciate how much living in a building like Seaglass within a community like Bonita Bay can offer. The Seaglass tower will connect to a complex with an array of amenities already in place, including a theater, guest suites, card and club rooms, a fitness facility featuring mens and womens spas with steam and massage rooms, a resortstyle walk-in pool, and a deck with a covered cabana that includes a bar and grill. Preliminary plans for Seaglass include a rooftop amenity deck for entertaining and enjoying Gulf views and sunsets. Attractions within Bonita Bay and available through the Bonita Bay Club will contribute to the amenity-rich Seaglass lifestyle. Casual and fine dining, tennis, a fitness center, spa, private beach park, and five championship golf courses are all part of life at Bonita Bay. The full-service Bonita Bay Marina provides access to the Gulf of Mexico. Nature and fitness enthusiasts enjoy Bonita Bays twelvemile network of biking and hiking paths. A kayaking and canoeing lodge offers additional recreational possibilities. After renovating its 50,000 squarefeet clubhouse, the Club has completed a 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center in the Promenade adjacent to Bonita Bay. The Lifestyle Center contributed to Bonita Bay being recognized as one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. The Lifestyle Centers 9,000 square feet spa and salon features seven treatment rooms, including a couples treatment room, mens and ladies locker rooms and wet areas with dedicated steam, sauna, and whirlpool rooms, relaxation rooms, a coed hair styling area, and a dedicated barber shop. The nearly 20,000 square-feet second floor is dedicated to a Fitness Center and Fitness Caf. The Fitness Centers Technogym equipment features cardiovascular, strength, functional fitness, and kinesis machines. The Fitness Center includes dedicated rooms for group fitness, spin, Pilates, and Gyrotonics, and a dedicated golf training studio. The Fitness Caf serves healthy fast food, freshly made juices, and smoothies.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYD6 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 2, 2015 Meet Mediterras super models: the award-winning Girona and CaprianoThe Girona and Capriano are more than luxury model homes at Mediterra: theyre super models. The two single-family maintenancefree villa homes, built by London Bay Homes and featuring interior design by Romanza Interior Design, received top honors during the Collier Building Industry Associations annual Sand Dollar Awards program. The two floor plans also rank among the most popular in Naples nine-time Community of the Year.Mediterras sixth Girona model owned the runway, claiming Interior Design of the Year in its price category. The three-bedroom home in the Cortile neighborhood features a bold modern design combining a gray and ivory palette accented with papaya and white, wood, glass, metallic and woven furniture finishes throughout its 3,526 square feet of living space. The four-bedroom, four-bath Capriano, designed with an open floor plan, an emphasis on outdoor living and a raised spa floating in the middle of the pool, earned Sand Dollar awards for product and pool design. These two floor plans are among our most popular because they really capture the spirit of living in Southwest Florida, said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes. Although the outdoor lifestyle has been important since we started building luxury homes 25 years ago, today theres even more importance on that connection and approaching outdoor living areas as an extension of the interior. During the past two years, the majority of the homebuilders models in Mediterra have sold quickly. Both the Capriano and Girona sold before completion to homeowners who opted to buy on leaseback, which provides visitors an extended opportunity to explore them. Theres been a sense of urgency to buy our model homes, said Wilson. Buyers are concerned if they wait, it will be too late. They opt to buy now and benefit from letting their home remain open as a model through our leaseback program. They might not be ready to move in today but dont want to miss out on buying into Mediterra, which is now more than 95 percent sold. The Girona, featuring interior design by Romanzas Michael Scott, was purchased during framing and is open for viewing through Dec. 15. The buyers have said they jumped at the opportunity to buy the home and were thrilled with the planned interior design, which features shellstone flooring, furniture with modern silhouettes, a touch of zebra pattern, and box-beamed and tongue-and-groove ceilings. The Girona offers a formal dining room, study, breakfast nook and an open great room accented with modern design elements. It also connects indoor and outdoor spaces through floor-toceiling windows and sliding glass doors, and showcases the homes pool, raised spa and nature preserves. Designed for outdoor living, the Girona offers a fully equipped summer kitchen and open-air and under-roof seating areas. Its sleek jet-black finished pool is accented with black glass mosaic tiles and two fire bowls flanked by reflecting pools and low-profile cobaltfinished planters. The model also has a three-car garage, private courtyard and fountain located inside a low wall at the front of the home. Kim and Jim Gosnell bought the Capriano model shortly after it was under roof. They walked room by room with their sales representative who showed them on her iPad the planned furniture placement and the coastal-inspired interior design. A lot of the furniture and fabrics were what we wanted, said Kim Gosnell. The designer and I really clicked. The professionals at Romanza were an awesome team to work with. It was perfect. It was the easiest way to look for a new home without having to work from scratch. The Gosnells also selected the leaseback option. The Capriano is open through April 2016. Located in Lucarno, a neighborhood reminiscent of a European village, the model offers a library, wine room, a home office adjacent to the kitchen, and a second floor with a lounge and TV area, a guest suite, full bath and morning kitchen/wet bar. It has 4,402 square feet of living space and an open great room floor plan flowing to a large outdoor living area. Alfresco spaces recall an upscale resort, with multiple seating and dining groups, a summer kitchen, outdoor fireplace, and a large second-floor balcony and sundeck. The Capriano was designed by Romanzas Jennifer Stevens who conveyed the coastal aesthetic with wood flooring, a vibrant palette of bright blues, indigos, greens and yellows with hints of aqua and tangerine, and weathered wood tones blended with metal, mirrored and silver finishes. Stevens design of a previous Capriano model earned a 2014 Aurora Award, recognizing it among the best in the Southeastern U.S. London Bay is currently building two more Capriano models in Mediterra. For many buyers there is no substitute for walking through and experiencing a model home, said Wilson, noting several additional luxury models are currently open within the 1,700-acre golf and beach club community. Other models are in various stages of construction and are slated for completion as early as January 2016. Our model homes really resonate with visitors, inspiring and exciting their imaginations, he said. Buyers get to experience how a floor plan really lives.
