A2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY A long, hard, righteous road This is the story of one American man. Burdie See-Baker Byrd, listed as not legitimate, was born in Attapulgus, Georgia, near Bainbridge, about 25 miles north of the Florida state line on June 5, 1939, according to his birth certificate, filled out in the hurried, barely legible penmanship of a clerk who may have believed he didnt count. I was reading it just the other morning, shortly after the self-styled Black Redneck, last of an endangered species, died at home of lung cancer with Christmas only 45 hours away. Mr. Baker was 76, the second of eight children and the oldest son of Roosevelt Baker and his lifelong inspiration, his mother Milissa Lizzie Byrd. His parents were field workers and wage slaves. His father left them early and the family went into debt working for a landowner who provided food and shelter, then charged them more than they could make in wages to live and eat. A long, lean drink of good cheer in the years I knew him, Mr. Baker was all ropy muscles and sinew and skill. He could skin out a hog in 10 minutes, grow a row of black-eyed peas or a patch of collards in 10 weeks, and quit both cigarettes and whiskey, forever, in 10 seconds, just because it was time. He drove Ford trucks and wore boots and cowboy hats in various colors whites, blacks, neon purples and blues all of it topped off in defiance of every stereotype ever invented with a big unrepentant Dixie belt buckle. He had porkchop sideburns, and when he smiled and spoke you could see gold teeth and joy shining like sunlight through his words. Mr. Baker entered the world in that listing-barge of a century between the Civil Wars conclusion in 1865 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 call it apartheid America. To put it in perspective, most Southern blacks couldnt vote in 1939. They were exiled from that right by poll taxes, literacy tests and property ownership requirements they couldnt meet. On the day of his birth, Mr. Baker was not afforded the privilege of his fathers surname on the birth certificate. Instead, the clerk added a see Baker, before writing his mothers name, Byrd, and boldly checking the box that said, not legitimate. Such history always bothered me more than it bothered him. He spent little time discussing the white people he knew in the first half of his life, and he laid out what he thought once to me in about 30 seconds. They couldnt hep it, most of em, they done what they was taught, he said. You kin cut them or cut me, we all bleed red. Were all the same. He had to make himself over, and he did, starting with that birth certificate. He changed the see to C., insisting it stood for Charles, and re-attached his fathers name to himself. He became what he always was, Mr. Burdie C. Baker, prince of a Georgia-born Florida man. For the most part, Mr. Baker never allowed bitterness or anger to steal his heart. He reserved a deep, lifelong malevolence only for his stepfather, who beat his mother and left a 4-inch scar in Burdies skull, laid in with a two-by-four when he was a boy, he told me. After leaving home at 16, Mr. Baker ended up in Southwest Florida working on crews that built hundreds of miles of roads before becoming an over-the-road truck driver based in West Palm Beach. He would later return to Lee County. From an early age he had guts and courage. In 1959 just before Mr. Baker turned 20, he realized that his family was in acute distress in Georgia, terrified of the landowner and unable to leave. So he single-handedly changed the family fortunes forever. Borrowing a friends Ford Fairlane, his sisters once told me, he returned to Bainbridge and rescued them by night, turning off the car lights when he coasted in and keeping the young children quiet as he packed them, with his mother, into the car. Mr. Baker later recalled worrying that the man would shoot them if he caught them leaving. He moved the family to Charleston Park east of Fort Myers, where his mother became famous for keeping a cast-iron pot simmering with stew in the front yard of their little home for passersby, usually farm workers. Mr. Baker followed her example in hundreds of ways for the rest of his life, providing meat, fish and fresh vegetables to any in need. For years I watched him grow gardens and share the produce with neighbors. He offered rides, retrieved groceries or medicine, and did odd jobs at no charge for the elderly or unfortunate, and for us too. He brought my boys bats or knives or fishing gear, and he put my youngest behind the wheel of his truck. Hes gone now, yes, but with this thunder echoing behind him here stood as legitimate an American man as ever came down a righteous road. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOBurdie C.

It was a year when we freaked out over symbols and scared ourselves with fake statistics. It was a year when the facts werent allowed to get in the way of a good, overwrought slogan. It was a year when we convinced ourselves that Earth was nearly beyond saving. It was a year of the safe space and micro-aggression. It was, in short, a year of hysteria. By now, we should be familiar with the workings of hysteria, since usually whipped up in social media and stoked by an inflamed left it has become such a familiar feature of our culture and politics. Hysteria doesnt know when to stop. After it was collectively decided that the Confederate flag shared responsibility for Dylann Roofs hellish murders in Charleston, South Carolina, Confederate symbols were hunted down as if they were armed fugitives from justice. The Memphis City Council even voted to exhume Nathan Bedford Forrest and for good measure his wife. Hysteria doesnt care about the facts. In an extraordinary feat, Black Lives Matter protestors took something that didnt happen from a case of justifiable use of police force in Ferguson, Missouri, and made it the slogan Hands up, dont shoot of a movement alleging systemic police racism. The truth of Ferguson didnt matter so much as the myth of Ferguson. Hysteria will believe anything. After the San Bernardino attack, the media hawked the bogus statistic that there had been more than 350 mass shootings in the U.S. this year, an almost daily occurrence. A more careful measure at Mother Jones tallied four mass shootings in 2015. Hysteria can be a powerful organizing tool. The entire world got together in Paris to sign on to a climate accord, based on the pretense that without immediate action Earth will be rendered all but uninhabitable by the ravages of climate change. Hysteria is a weapon. On college campuses, students didnt just seek safe spaces from speech they deemed uncongenial and decry inadvertent slights known as micro-aggressions, they terrorized anyone not with the program. A university president was fired for looking at protestors the wrong way (University of Missouri), and a prestigious college campus (Yale) was roiled by a dispute over whether allegedly tasteless Halloween costumes could be tolerated. Protestors hunted for university employees they could be offended by enough to get cashiered. It is always difficult to motivate people around careful reasoning about a problem, or to win a detached argument on the merits. It is much easier to create hate figures to attack, to demand immediate action as a sign of moral purity, and to short-circuit cost-benefit analysis with apocalyptic warnings. With the news cycle faster than ever and social media a constant accelerant, stopping to think, or to gather all the facts, or to consider possible downsides, feels more intolerable than ever. This is the world we live in. 2015 was a year of hysteria, but why will 2016 be any different? Stock up on smelling salts and fainting couches. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The winners circleBefore we fully launch ourselves into the new year, it is obligatory to take a backward look and see what transpired, hoping most of it wont follow us into the future. Only then can we celebrate, give a sigh of relief and wish good luck and farewell to the previous year. To the extent we enjoyed an abundance of good fortune, we wish repetition of more of the same. Though we are hopeful about the new year, we are a little wary of the blank slate before us. The calamities of the last 12 months tend to cast a long shadow over our optimism. We just pray things will improve and we can escape any continuance of the terrible same occurrences in the new year. It is a particularly tough time to expect 2016 to be better, given its prologue. 2015 didnt start out well, either. A survey of major milestones in 2014 yielded a pretty grim list. Much of the bad news was self-inflicted, a tsunami of systemic failures to practice the golden rule and treat others as you would like to be treated fairly, justly, with compassion and consistent with the rule of law. We did poorly in major ways in 2014. The gross negligence of Freedom Industries resulted in a massive chemical spill on the Elk River in West Virginia, leaving thousands of businesses, schools and homes without potable water for weeks. General Motors recalled a decade too late more than 700,000 cars to replace faulty ignitions suspected of multiple deaths nationwide. The first Ebola-related death in the U.S. set off widespread fears of an epidemic and a stampede to close our borders and make indiscriminate use of quarantines, summarily ignoring what health experts advised. This seems like ancient history now, but the failures were symptomatic to rise with dignity and courage in response to our troubles. In sum, our delusional flirtations with disaster totaled up to be another year of living dangerously. We too often failed to enforce accountability and govern against our worst impulses. Looking forward back then, I made some predictions about 2015: Global conflicts would continue, roil our domestic waters, and test our resolve as a nation to live up to our democratic values. The economic divide separating the haves from the have-nots would persist, sentencing millions of families to deepening poverty. Advancing social change would reinvigorate calls for compromise, collaboration, nonviolent protest and advocacy. Continued and profound uncertainties would put a premium on enlightened, visionary leadership but prove to be a rare commodity, hard to find and harder to sustain though the nations toughest challenges require it. That was then and this is now. 2015 has come and gone. The themes above didnt dissipate in the course of the last 12 months, and if anything, only escalated their dominance over a fresh start. Finding something positive about 2015 doesnt come easily either. Summarizing its milestones is pretty much a joyless task. Even trying to create such a list seems like overkill, given the epic narcissism and the mass contagion of our over-indulgence in the dark side. It is as if the nation went to bed after a toxic drunk in 2015 and woke up in 2016 with a massive hangover. In such circumstances, we could use a little hair of the dog that bit us. Here are mine. Earlier this year, American Pharaoh became the first racehorse since 1978 to win the American Triple Crown. This grand horse went on to smoke his competitors and win the Breeders Cup Classic, too, thus entering the record books as the first thoroughbred to win the Grand Slam of American horse racing the undisputed victor of all four race classics. Raising a mint julep in his honor on New Years Eve seemed entirely appropriate. In August, former President Jimmy Carter announced he had brain cancer. He said on initially receiving the news he didnt think he had more than a few weeks to live. (I know what you are thinking: How could this possibly be a positive?) But hear me out. Said the smiling Carter, I have had a wonderful life. Im ready for anything and Im looking forward to new adventure. It is in the hands of God, whom I worship. His remarks were made with honesty, grace, absent self-pity, and without any embroidery of falsity or fears. It was terrible news but the former president, by his example, demonstrated how one could be in the valley of the shadow of death, with dignity, hope and aspirations intact. His was a remarkable witness to human resiliency and faith, despite the gravity and harshness of the circumstance. It was a moment of uplift rare by todays standards, a high point delivered from the depths of travail. Carter has since said he expects to be around in 2016 after all. His brain cancer is in remission. Said he, Id like for the last guinea worm to die before I do. I hope so, too. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

PROFILES IN PARADISEFor this Mudbone musician, its all about that bassEvery chance we can, Linda and I had to Weekend Willies for the Mudbone Blues and Beyond Jam. At the risk of hyperbole, Ive never before witnessed the complex, syncopated, extemporaneous and mesmerizing play that bassist David Carlton Johnson brings to the Mudbone mix. And Im not the only one who thinks so: When hes not with the group, Mr. Johnson travels with Aaron Neville as bassist and back-up vocalist. He grew up in Detroit as the youngest of five brothers and sisters. Music was always playing in the house, he says, adding, Im not sure if I chose music, or music chose me. He describes himself as a band/ choir/backstage geek who hardly ever went to class. He took piano lessons from age 5 to 14, and when his high school band director told him college wouldnt make him anymore talented, he quit school (I should have finished, though, he allows). Although Ive enjoyed hearing him play blues, jazz and popular music many times, I had never seen David at the keyboard until I found a clip on his Facebook page where he performs an entire Beethoven sonata on the piano without sheet music. (Ive never seen him read music, and it is beyond my comprehension how he retains all this music in his head.)David came to the Paradise Coast in 1989 with a Detroit-based band named Attraction. I liked the fact that you could make a real living down here playing music, so I stayed, he says. He lived in New York City for two years playing music but returned to Southwest Florida in 1995.Mudbone guitarist Mario Catman Infante met David about 25 years ago in a small music store in Cape Coral where Mr. Infante was teaching guitar. This kid walks in, looks around and picks a bass off the wall, plugs into an amp and starts playing, he recalls. I said to myself, Wow! Where did this guy come from? I had never heard a young guy play a bass with such tenacity, perfect time and silky smooth groove. I HAD to play with this guy. While Davids background is in R&B and jazz, he views all music the same and enjoys playing all types. His favorite instrument to play is bass. Second would be drums, he says. Although Im really not a drummer, its fun.He says the highlight of his career has been touring with the Neville Brothers and seeing myself on TV. When asked about his musical aspirations, he replies he would like to do scoring for films or TV.David and his wife, Tara, have two daughters. While Melody, 18, and Natalie, 14, are both musically talented, their father says they are more into dance. When not performing, David enjoys sports, cars, home improvement projects and being a good neighbor. Youd be hard pressed to find a more talented, skillful and versatile musician than David C. Johnson, says Mudbone guitarist Rick Howard. This is because music flows through his veins. David lives music, and he lives it as he lives all the other aspects of his life: with love, pas sion and respect. Something your mother was right about: Just about everything. Something that makes you laugh: How important we think we are in the grand scheme of things. Something thats been on your mind: How charged everything is these days. If everyone would deal with the world on a person-toperson basis, there would be so much more understanding and peace. What would you be doing if you werent playing music? Id want to be a radio DJ. One thing on your bucket list: See Stevie Wonder in concert. Skill or talent you wish you had: I wish I could tap dance. Advice for your kids: Let God be the author of your happiness. Best thing about your kids: Although theyre very beautiful, they are in no rush to be boy crazy. Last book you read: Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original by Robin Kelley Something youll never understand: The chosen truth of people vs. fact. Pet peeve: Being interrupted during a performance. Guilty pleasure: Late afternoon naps. What are you most proud of? My family. What the Paradise Coast really needs: More outdoor concerts. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: The pace. Its much slower than on the East Coast. What you miss most when youre away: My family and my home. Talking points with David C.

WEVE REALLY GONE AND DONE it now, havent we? And not for the first time. The Babylonians did it first, and not to themselves but to the gods they made solemn new years resolutions, promising to pay off debts and return objects theyd borrowed. The Romans promised to improve themselves, too, at the feet of Janus (hence, January), a divinity with two faces who could look into the past with one face and into the future with the other. Medieval knights took a peacock vow (it sounds a lot better in French less voeux du paon) by promising to remain chivalrous in the coming year, which makes sense: Theres a lot of strutting and displaying when it comes to resolutions to be noble or chivalrous. And then theres the modern North American or European. We make promises to ourselves, usually, and then we commission studies to look at the results. A professor at the University of Bristol followed 3,000 people who made New Years resolutions in 2007, according to Ancient Origins: Reconstructing Humanitys Past. By the end of the year, 88 percent had failed but men were 22 percent more likely to stick to their resolutions if they set goals, he discovered, and women were 10 percent more likely to succeed if they socialized with each other and described their resolutions to their friends. Like much else, resolutionmaking is not carpentry its not construction work its artistry. And some artists are better at it than others. The writer James Agate, for example, resolved one year to tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time. Thats a masterpiece, like this one, the rather foxy creation of Catherine OHara: I know. Im lazy. But I made myself a New 2016 RESOLUTIONS FROM COMMUNITY LEADERSBY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com Years resolution that I would write myself something really special. Which means I have til December, right? At Florida Weekly, however, everything is different. For us, 4,000 years of ancient origins, mountains of contemporary studies and the most carefully constructed Rockets of Resolution each equipped with built-in escape hatches although entertaining, mostly amount to smoke in the wind. We prefer to remain In the Know, In the Now which, in fact, frames our collective resolution for 2016: To stay there. For that reason, this week we bring you the new years resolutions of a few of our favorite people, now mere days into their own personal 2016 journeys. These men and women tend to defy studies and laugh off mere statistics. Our own studies and statistics, admittedly somewhat whimsical, indicate that 100 percent of them will succeed in any resolution they make. But we have not stopped there. Since theyre so successful, we have asked them all to suggest an additional resolution a resolution they wish someone else would make. Heres what they said. HEATHER FITZENHAGEN, STATE REPRESENTATIVE FROM DISTRICT 78:Resolution: I will be simplifying in the New Year. I have resolved to increase my focus on things that are important and to live in the moment. Resolution suggestion: I hope that leaders at every level will use common sense and act with compassion. Short-term thinking and bombastic rhetoric is so last year! Resolve to be genuine and act with conviction. For Donald Trump: Be candid, be passionate (love it), but resolve not to be rude and disrespectful to others.MARIE LABROSSE, CO-OWNER OF CHARLOTTE WELL DRILLING AND BOARD CHAIR OF CHARLOTTE PLAYERS:Resolution: To get a cleaning person who really cleans like I do, when I clean, and to help organize and purge. Plus the proverbial, I will lose weight and exercise. Im making that resolution, too. Now, where are those bonbons? Resolution suggestion for philanthropists: To resolve to have a theater named after them in downtown Punta Gorda, fulfilled and run by the Charlotte Players, Charlotte Countys 55-year-old, only 501(c)(3) nonprofit community theater organization. The Players is a gem, and such a theater is one of the only pieces of Punta Gorda still missing. What better than a great meal at one of the downtown restaurants, an evening of live theater and a drink or two?AMY SNYDER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM AND EDUCATION CENTER OF NAPLES:Resolution: My resolution for the coming year is to de-cl utter my life of things, events and situations that stand in the way of spending time with the people I love. I want to have more time to do the things that have eternal significance, rather than focusing on things that have little importance beyond the moment. Resolution suggestion: How about a collective resolution that people in general would learn and abide by the rules of the road? Is that too much to ask?RANDY HENDERSON, FORT MYERS MAYOR SINCE 2009 AND CO-OWNER OF THE REAL ESTATE COMPANY CORBIN HENDERSON:Resolution: On a personal note, I want to do better on random acts of kindness. Todays social and cultural trends can benefit from leadership in this area from all. I want to do my part. I want to be more personally disciplined in my lifestyle, work smarter, use more discretion in the choices I make to inspire better outcomes professionally, to include my physical discipline and helping others by living the example. I want to pay it forward. I want to make sure from the public safety side that we are doing all we can to improve public safety, including catching and prosecuting violent offenders and repeat felons to the fullest extent possible and removing this threat from our citizens across the city and region. Our task force is making tremendous strides in this regard. I want to ensure we are promoting assertive, aggressive policy in this work. We can do better. Indeed, we are doing better. Finally, I want to do my part in promoting education, activities, and support for young ones who are abandoned by family so they have a fighting chance to overcome adversity. We must address abject poverty and move away from this through continued aggressive economic development. I have committed to serving on a committee to pursue this through the Pennies for Community Progress initiative. Resolution suggestion: For others, namely the United States Congress: I want our nation to come together and address terrorism with authority, and like we mean it. We must unite on this front and set differences aside to move the United States forward. Our nation is divided and weakened in this regard. We need serious commitment to mental health nationally. We are weak because we have no mental health policy or commitment. It is a poor reflection on America and demonstrates insensitivity and indifference to a very serious human condition. We can solve this challenge and we are late to the task. Our nation is desperate for strong, rational, measured political leadership in nonpartisan ways.

WAYNE DALTRY, FORMER DIRECTOR OF LEE COUNTY SMART GROWTH, VOLUNTEER AND LEADER OF THE THE CALOOSAHATCHEE RIVER CITIZENS ASSOCIATION:Resolution: I am back to a common New Year reminder as pledge not to commit the same mistakes and errors of the past (since) there are so many I have not yet experienced! Resolution Suggestion: My resolution for any elected official is that they repeat the phrase: Government of the people, by the people and for the people and they resolve to remember it means human beings, not stacks of money and to not exclude anyone who meets the criteria of being a human being.PATRICK DEARBORN, HEAD OF THE DEARBORN TEAM AT JOHN R. WOOD PROPERTIES, VOLUNTEER WITH COLLIER COUNTY HONOR FLIGHT AND SALVATION ARMY RED KETTLE DRIVE IN NAPLES:Resolution: My resolution for 2016 is to be more fiscally responsible and to spread the word about the YMCA in Naples and to help them raise much needed money. Resolution suggestion: I would ask my son Cooper age 12 to make his 2016 resolution to continue to be a light in the world we need more young people to be lights in the world. BRIAN HOLLEY, CEO OF THE NAPLES BOTANICAL GARDEN:Resolution: I usually try to avoid resolutions at all cost but this year I really want to start putting this aging, cranky body into yoga classes. Resolution suggestion: My resolution for another person would be for my yogi to resolve to ban cameras from the studio while I am there. Another resolution suggestion would be for Mark Zuckerberg to resolve to finally put a DONT LIKE button on Facebook posts! JAMES ABRAHAM, PRINCIPAL AT BOOK-BROKER PUBLISHERS OF FLORIDA:Resolution: My personal resolution is the one Ive been making for the past five years: to listen to my wife, Ginger. She has my best interests at heart and shes usually right. Im getting better at listening to her every year. Resolution suggestion: Id love to see people in general commit to better public discourse. This country and this community have problems that can be solved through mutual respect and civility in public discussion.MIKE SCOTT, LEE COUNTY SHERIFF SINCE 2005:Resolution: Personally, I resolve to maintain my laser focus on public safety each and every day for the citizens I am honored to serve. Resolution suggestion: I hope more people come to the realization that all lives matter.JEFF MCCULLERS, DIRECTOR OF GRANTS AND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT AND LIAISON TO PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOLS, LEE COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT:Resolution: My first resolution is to do some homework thats good for me: Ive resolved to read Capital in the Twenty-First Century by the French economist Thomas Piketty. For almost two years now, the smartest people I know and read have made repeated and pointed references to this book, and I think I need to find out why it matters so much. My second resolution is one thats just for fun. I have resolved to read Peter Guralnicks new biography of Sam Phillips, the legendary founder of Sun Records in Memphis. This looks to be like the sort of book you read straight through the night. Resolution suggestion: If I could wish a resolution on other people, it would be that every single citizen register to vote, and that every registered voter cast an informed ballot in every race and referendum. After all, voters have supreme power, and with great power comes great responsibility.ANNETTE TROSSBACH, WARD, STEWARD, FOUNDER AND ANGEL OF THE THEATER THE LABORATORY THEATER OF FLORIDA:Resolution: I am aware that the challenges we attract to ourselves (for those dont appear by chance) are there to teach us. I resolve to remain open, a vessel if possible, to those challenges and the likelihood of pain. I do not wish to close myself off, to develop a thick skin, possibly to become hardhearted or cynical or cruel, including to myself. I choose not to be that person. I will rather OWN my challenges, cry about them, laugh about them, share them with friends, brainstorm, improve myself, improve my theater, improve if I can in my own small way the community about me. There is much for which to be grateful. And I am, every day. I resolve to be grateful for the difficulties. And to embrace the discomfort (hurt? pain?) that so often holds hands with change. Resolution suggestion: Ms. Trossbach is reluctant to suggest resolutions for others. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 NEWS A9 16850 S.

Mr. Bobby Gonzalez called me down to the Migrant Center, Horace explained of his mentor, a teacher based at the center. I think he must check my grades a lot, he added with a smile. January is National Mentoring Month, and Horace is only one of the students in The Immokalee Foundations programs who are benefiting from caring adult leadership. About 80 mentors work with students after school once a week. The missed math assignment was turned in. Although Horace had simply been absent one day, he didnt mind the fact that his mentor was paying close attention. He keeps me on track, keeps me focused, he said about Mr. Gonzalez. Hes been a great influence on my life. As TIF looks forward to inducting another group of students into the Take Stock in Children scholarship program in April, the organization is seeking to add to its roster of mentors. Adults who have an hour or two each week to spend with a student in Immokalee will give these young people a much brighter future than they may have had. The mentor-mentee relationships that result are often lasting. Horace and Mr. Gonzalez have been matched as mentor and mentee since Horace was a freshman in high school. For much of that time, he has played sports. Mr. Gonzalez is a baseball coach, so Horace has always known he could ask him for advice. But it turned out he could ask the coach not only about sports, he said, but also other important considerations, such as applying to colleges. Thats just the kind of relationship Jacqueline Perez is looking forward to; she is Mr. Gonzalezs newest mentee. I hope to get help with not only school-based things, but also other issues, she said. The freshman at Immokalee High School was just accepted into the Take Stock in Children scholarship program. Im very excited because it was my third try, Jacqueline said. The process isnt easy: Students are chosen for the program based on economic need, an essay and interview. Jacqueline said she thinks the extra time she spent on her essay on this try made the difference. She now must keep good grades, stay crimeand drug-free, perform community service and meet with her mentor at least once a week. In exchange, when she graduates, she will receive a scholarship to a Florida college or university. Shes optimistic and has goals; she once thought she wanted to become an orthodontist, but now shes thinking about agriculture and business. At 14, she still has time to explore her options and her mentor is there to help, as are TIFs Career Development and Take Stock in Children programs. Jacqueline, who has three younger sisters, is the first in her family to see college in the future. TIFs Michelle Kennedy considers herself lucky to be the person matching up mentors and mentees. The really moving thing is that these adults are doing it on their own free time, not out of obligation but because they want to, she said. And I feel like Im introducing the students to people who will be lifelong friends. That certainly describes Mr. Gonzalez, who in addition to Horace and Jacqueline also mentors Serafin and Oton Estrada. An official TIF mentor for about 10 years, hes been an unofficial one much longer. For me its easy, he said. I work in the school system and see the kids. Im mentoring anyway as a part of my life with a lot of kids. But to develop the relationships I do with The Immokalee Foundation kids is very nice. It helps them, too, to have somebody to talk to, to go to if they have a problem, somebody on campus that they can trust to give them good advice. I just keep an eye on them, making sure theyre spending time with the right people and doing the right things. The rewards are obvious when the students graduate, go on to successful college experiences and come back on breaks to visit, Mr. Gonzalez said. Its interesting. They might not realize it at the time youre working with them, but when they come back, you hear what a positive influence youve been on their lives, he said. Its very gratifying. TIF provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring, tutoring and development of life skills that lead to economic independence. To learn more about volunteering as a mentor, call 430-9122 or visit immokaleefoundation.org. Mentor Bobby Gonzalez, right, with mentee Oton Estrada. Senior Horace Means is one of four Immokalee High School students being mentored by baseball coach Bobby Gonzalez.

Mr. Knight, who holds a masters degree in Celtic languages and literatures from Harvard University, will make his presentation at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14, at the Naples Womans Club, 570 Park Ave. in downtown Naples. He will detail the role played by newspapers and the popular press in Irish Nationalism in the revolutionary period in both Ireland and the United States. These press ventures were expensive and time consuming, but they had their valued readers on both sides of the Atlantic who supported de-Anglicizing and the restoration of the Irish language, Mr. Knight says about publications including the Fenian Brotherhoods Phoenix (1859-61), Irish People (1863), The Irish Fireside and Shan Van Vocht. He will also give full consideration to the many women who contributed to the cause and to the editing of the papers. The presentation will lay some groundwork for the second lecture in the Irish history series. Set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Naples Womans Club, it will be about the Easter Uprising, Young Ireland, the Irish Brotherhood, Michael Collins, Padraig Pearse and others connected with the 1916 revolt. Guest speaker will be Timothy Sutton, Ph.D., director of communication arts at Samford University in Birmingham, Ala. Set for 7 p.m. Friday, March 18, and also at the Naples Womans Club, the third lecture will feature Jennifer Dukes, Ph.D., in a program about the life and times of St. Patrick and the history of the Vikings in Ireland. Now a professor at the University of South Florida, Ms. Dukes earned her doctorate in Celtic languages and literatures and medieval studies from Harvard University. Tickets to each lecture are $20 and are available by calling 227-5350 or visiting naplesparade.com. The lecture series is presented by the Naples St. Patrick Foundation to raise funds for the 40th annual Naples St. Patricks Day Parade that takes place Saturday, March 12, in downtown Naples. In addition to raising funds for the parade, the foundation supports high school music programs throughout Southwest Florida, provides college scholarships to local students and works to increase awareness and appreciation of Irish culture and its influence.

A two-term governor of Florida and three-term senator, Mr. Graham retired from Capitol Hill in January 2005. He then spent the 2005-06 academic year as senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. In 2007, Mr. Graham, who earned his bachelors degree in political science from the University of Florida, created the Bob Graham Center for Public Service at UF to train future political leaders. He currently serves as chair of the board of overseers of the center. Mr. Graham is a member of the CIA External Advisory Board and in 2010 was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve as co-chair of the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling. He has written three non-fiction books (Workdays: Finding Florida on the Job, Intelligence Matters and America: The Owners Manual) and in 2011 published his first novel, a thriller titled The Keys to the Kingdom.

Among the trans-ages favorite activities are (coloring-book) coloring, creating a play-like kingdom, and wearing really pretty clothes. Ms. Wolscht now lives with the couple who adopted her. Unclear on the conceptThee, Not Me: American millennials (those aged 18 to 29) continue a longstanding tradition, The Washington Post wrote in December, describing a Harvard Institute of Politics poll on their views on war. Following the recent Paris terrorist attacks, about 60 percent of U.S. millennials said additional American troops would be needed to fight the Islamic State, but 85 percent answered, in the next question, that no, they themselves were probably or definitely not joining the military. Exceptional Floridians(1) Police in St. Petersburg reported the December arrest of a 12-year-old boy whose rap sheet listed more than 20 arrests since age 9. He, on a bicycle, had told an 89-year-old driver at a gas station that the mans tire was low, and when the man got out to check, the boy hopped in the car and took off. (2) A driver accidentally plowed through two small businesses in Pensacola in December, creating such destruction that the manager of one said it looked like a bomb had hit (forcing both a tax service and a casket company to relocate). The driver told police he was attempting to travel through time. Compelling explanations(1) Breen Peck, 52, an air traffic controller who has been having career troubles in recent years, was arrested during a traffic stop on New Yorks Long Island in December when officers found illegal drugs in his car. Thats meth, he said. Im an air traffic controller. I smoke it to stay awake. (2) In a she-said/hesaid case, wealthy Saudi businessman Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was acquitted of rape in December in Englands Southwark Crown Court, apparently persuading jurors of reasonable doubt about his DNA found in the alleged victims vagina. Perhaps, his lawyer said, Mr. Abdulaziz was still aroused after sex with the other woman in the apartment and accidentally fell directly upon the alleged victim lying on a sofa.Ironies Christopher Manney was fired from the Milwaukee Police Department in 2014 after shooting a black suspect to death in a case bearing some similarity to 2015 shootings that produced Black Lives Matter protests not fired for the shooting (adjudged not excessive force) but for improper actions that preceded the shooting (not announcing a valid reason for a pat down and conducting a not-by-the-book pat down). Two days before the firing, he had filed a disability claim for post-traumatic stress disorder from the shooting and aftermath, and in November 2015 the citys Annuity and Pension Board, following city law, approved the claim. Thus, Mr. Manney, despite having been subsequently fired, retired with full disability, with basically the same take-home pay he was receiving when fired. In November, as anti-Muslim tensions arose in several U.S. cities following the Paris terrorist attack, two chapters of the Satanic Temple church (San Jose, Calif., and Minneapolis) offered to protect Muslims who feared a backlash. The Minneapolis group offered just big dudes walking you to where you need to be, for example, grocery shopping an offer of genuine compassion for our fellow human beings. (The offer was subsequently rescinded by the Minneapolis churchs executive ministry, reasoning that they are not a personal security service.) Wrong place, wrong timeIn November, a 62-year-old customer at Ancient City Shooting Range in St. Augustine, Fla., was hit in the lower abdomen area by another shooter, 71, because the victim was standing behind the target (for some reason, was all a fire-rescue spokesman would say). The shooter thought the man was elsewhere on the property. Least-competent criminals Oops! (1) Jasper Harrison, 47, working inside the storage unit in Edgewater, Fla., where he grows his marijuana, heard a helicopter overhead on Dec. 9, panicked, and called 911 to turn himself in to pre-empt what he presumed was a SWAT raid. Actually, the helicopter belonged to a local news station headed elsewhere, but police later arrested Mr. Harrison based on the 911 call. (2) Lloyd Franklin, 34 and suspected in a North Carolina double murder, fatally shot himself in a Bensalem, Pa., motel room in November when police knocked on the door. However, cops actually had come to arrest another man in the room on a parole violation. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

But relationships and routines need to be redesigned for retirement, she adds, and most people arent emotionally prepared for that. Ms. Oehser is one of several speakers lined up for Living an Exceptional Retirement: Transitioning with Flair, Fun & Financial Security, a free seminar coming up from 8:30-11:45 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20, in the community room at the Naples Daily News. She and others will address retirement planning from what organizers call a holistic viewpoint. People need to rethink what they want the non-financial part of their retirement to look like, Ms. Oehser says. After retirement there is a sixto 10-month honeymoon period, she adds. Then they realize playing golf five days a week isnt so much fun and they ask, What are the next 20 years of my life going to look like? People are living longer, a fact that presents retirees with new choices. There isnt a onesize plan anymore, he says. People can use help designing this new phase of their lives. That redesign should include stretching ones brain as well. That is the message of another of the seminars speakers, Donna Suddeth, president of the Naples Council on World Affairs. The councils mission is to engage and educate people in international issues through its lecture series featuring well-known speakers and a discussion program where small groups discuss timely articles. Members also can travel together internationally to broaden their experience of the world. We believe if you stay engaged and involved, your life will be more rewarding and you will be a better citizen, Ms. Suddeth says. Keeping involved in something outside yourself is healthy. The organizations welcomes all adults, and the local council has members in their 90s, she adds. Registered yoga instructor Susan Weinman will teach seminar attendees how to practice breath work, show them several chair-based yoga movements and discuss the mind-body connection in relation to mediation and sitting in stillness. Different therapies and practices can promote calm, strength, flexibility and balance and create a productive life for retirees, Ms. Weinman says. Such practices can slow the heart rate, break the stress cycle, improve lung function, increase strength, flexibility and cardiovascular conditioning and lower blood pressure, she says. We are taught that the mind and body both diminish over time, Ms. Weinman adds. It doesnt have to be that way. You can maintain a physically active lifestyle for the rest of your life. Living an Exceptional Retirement: Transitioning with Flair, Fun & Financial Security is sponsored by Townsend Financial of Raymond James. Sometimes people have an idea that retirement is a negative thing, says Dianne Townsend, vice president of the firm. We want to show how this transition in their lives can be new and exciting. Whether they are feeling excited or apprehensive about retirement, we help them look forward with anticipation. Also on the program is the firms Seth Townsend, who will conclude the presentation with a discussion about setting retirement goals and expectations. Do you want to fulfill a dream of travel in retirement? Arrange to pay for your grandkids education? Buy a new car every few years? We can help make those dreams a reality, Mr. Townsend says. Although attendance is free, reservations are required for the seminar. Call 513-6500 or visit raymondjames.com/ townsend. Looking toward retirement?

Let the Infiniti QX60 disguise your familyOf course you love your family. Still, many of you are willing to pay extra money to drive a vehicle that doesnt always remind you that there are plenty of little ones to haul around. Infiniti seems to understand this motivation quite well, and the QX60 is proof. Many luxury crossovers add swoopy and aggressive style lines to try and liven up the soccer practice transport, but this one goes further. The QX60 utilizes a much more cohesive package to offer a bit of visual trickery. The grille and front Infiniti logo are massive. This might just be a bit of corporate hubris, but it also serves as a nice way to scale down the size of the vehicle. After all, a vehicle with a big emblem sets up the large doors and long roof to appear proportionally smaller (i.e., sportier). The inward kink of the d-pillar artificially shortens the perception of the rear end, which once again, hides the QX60s bulk. The reality of this crossovers true size is apparent from the Napoleonic feeling that comes from opening such a substantial door. The upshot of this size deception is an interior that gives plenty of room to the first two rows and a standard third row that doesnt stunt a childs growth. Theres even enough cargo room left over to carry a few suitcases. But more than function, this Infiniti keeps its luxury attitude with standard features like the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, power front seats, power rear liftgate and three-zone automatic climate control. The standard leather interior feels comfortable for the driver, and more importantly, it has a thick durable feeling to it. Rarely are the cowhides of luxury cars described this way, but it has a robustness that will be appreciated the first time uh-oh is heard from a little voice in the third row. Like any good luxury vehicle there is a long list of comfort and convenience options. One that comes highly recommended is the AroundView monitor that displays a 360-degree view of the car on the touchscreen. This also offers a wide front and rear sonar detection that can help watch out for the neighborhood kids. There is also an available moonroof over the second and third rows. This feature was deemed very family friendly during an outing at a drive through a safari park. Both the camera system and the extra glass roof are part of larger pricy option bundles ($3,000 and $3,450 respectively,) but these packages are well equipped enough that they are worth a look. All of this adds to the QX60s $43,395 base price. Thats not at all cheap, but it is quite reasonable in the premium crossover class. Those who want to save even more can check out the QX60s assembly line sibling, the Nissan Pathfinder. But oddly enough, the upper echelons of the Pathfinders option packages are expensive enough to make this Infiniti version look like a bargain. But what really makes the QX60 standout is what it does for the driver. We were a bit puzzled by the speedsensitive hydraulic rack-and-pinion steering that was on the Infiniti Q70 sports sedan we tested a few week ago, but it feels right at home here. The way it gives a little extra heavy steering effort at lower speeds is much more welcomed in the QX60. The weight is not daunting, but instead, it adds a little extra performance feel to the handling when driving at neighborhood speed. And lets face it, theres a real desire for any family drivers to experience a bit of the old days when all that was needed was a two-seater coupe. This tight handling package doesnt tax the passengers. The 265 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 motor is connected to a smooth continuously variable transmission. Plus, the whole chassis has been dampered well enough to keep everyone comfortable on multi-state road trips. We know you love your family. Thats why years ago you traded in a pair of sport bucket seats for a fleet of child safety chairs. But Infiniti also knows that youll pay a little extra to get a taste of that old sports car life again. BEHIND THE WHEEL mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Two of the robots will improve health and quality of life for individuals with disabilities, and the third will serve as a social companion for children that inspires curiosity and teaches the importance of hard work and determination. Funding for the NIH projects will total approximately $2.2 million over the next five years, subject to the availability of funds. Smart-walker to increase mobility for elderly As individuals age, their ability to walk without assistance diminishes, leading to a decrease in physical activity and quality of life. To stay in their homes, elderly with mobility issues often require costly home modifications such as replacing steps with ramps or installing wheelchair lifts. The goal of this project is to develop a four-legged robot that enhances mobility so that the elderly can remain physically active and enjoy a healthier life with reduced reliance on the assistance of caregivers or expensive home renovations. The robot has two modes: smart power-assist walker and smart mule. In the smart power-assist walker mode, the user is situated within the robot and chooses the amount of powered assistance that is needed. In the smart mule mode, the robot walks alongside the user while carrying a load, for example groceries. The robot uses a 3-D computer vision-based sensing system to detect the users motion and the environment. With its smart legs, the robot is able to easily overcome environmental obstacles in ways that powered wheelchairs cannot. Hand-worn device to help visually impaired grasp objects This project proposes to create a hand-worn assistive device that uses computer vision to identify target objects in a users environment, determine misalignment between the users hand and the object, and then convey via natural human-device interfaces the hand motion needed to grasp the object. The device will contribute to the independent lives of the visually impaired in two major ways: It will enhance the individuals ability to travel independently by helping the user identify moveable obstacles and manipulate them so that they can pass, and it will assist in object grasping for non-navigational purposes such as identifying and correctly maneuvering a specific door handle. A social-robot companion for kidsCuriosity, resilience to challenging environments, and a growth mindset the belief that ones basic abilities can be improved through dedication and hard work are important factors that influence a childs mental health, academic achievement and general well-being. The goal of this project is to create an autonomous, long-term social robotic companion for children that will promote and assess curiosity and a growth mindset through various interactions. After developing the robot, the researchers plan to evaluate its influence by conducting a six-month longitudinal study in which children learn and play while interacting with the robot companion.

A26 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY World Renowned Cataract Surgeon, David C. BrownM.D., F.A.C.S NEW LOCATION IN CAPE CORAL! Coralwood Shopping Center 2301 Del Prado Blvd S, #820 Cape Coral, FL 33990 Free Rug offer available only at your Fort Myers Bendele Abbey Flooring BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIts one of the most alarming phone calls a pet owner can receive: Hello? Ive found a dog. His tag says Thornton on it, and it has this phone number. That was the call I received last month while I was in Oklahoma, visiting my parents. My husband was recovering from surgery and had a cold, so we placed the dogs with a pet sitter who had kept them many times previously. I was stunned and frightened. Had all the dogs escaped the sitters home, or just this one? Were the other two still running loose somewhere? I rummaged for a pen and some paper so I could take down the callers name and phone number. I called my husband to alert him that he needed to call the person and arrange to get our dog. I wasnt sure which one it was, since Keeper and Harper both have brown-and-white coloring. Then I called the pet sitter. Do you have my dogs? He admitted that Keeper was missing he had somehow slipped out of the house unseen. They were searching for him. Happily, Harper and Gemma were still there. I let him know that Keeper had been found turns out he was just next door and that my husband would be by soon to pick them all up. You might say that Im a little obsessive when it comes to the amount of information I put on my pets identification tags. They are engraved with our last name, our home phone number, two cell phone numbers and our veterinarians phone number. Of course, my dogs are also microchipped, but an ID tag is the first and easiest option for recovery. All the finder has to do is read the tag and call the phone number on it. In our case, the man called our house phone first but didnt leave a message. My husband didnt recognize the number, so he didnt pick up the call. I had my phone on silent because my parents and I had just gotten out of the movies, but luckily I felt it vibrate. I didnt recognize the number either, but it was an Orange County area code, so I answered. In addition to their ID tags, my dogs wear tags from HomeAgain and the American Kennel Clubs Reunite service. The microchips are registered with those organizations, so if the man had called either of those numbers, we would have been notified. And of course they all have their license tags from the county. Those tags dont have phone numbers, but if the finder had called Orange County Animal Control, they would have been able to identify Keeper and get in touch with me. Accidents like Keepers escape can happen to anyone. Hes very good at home about not running out the door, and I would not have expected him to escape in such a manner, but you never know what a dog is going to do. You can never prevent your dog from becoming lost, but you can take easy, inexpensive steps to increase the likelihood that hell come home safely: Keep a collar with an up-to-date ID tag on him. Put multiple phone numbers on the tag. Check the tag regularly to make sure the engraving hasnt faded. Microchip him. License him. Register his identification with an organization such as the American Kennel Clubs Reunite service. And remember: If you find a lost dog, be sure to leave a message at all the phone numbers. An identification tag helped ensure that a lost dog was returned quickly to his owners. PET TALESLost and foundA missing-dog story has a happy ending thanks to an identification tag Pets of the Week>> Blackie is a laid-back, 2-year-old domestic shorthair mix who enjoys the company of people and other cats.

CREMATION/ PERSONALIZED OPTIONS PRIVATE VIEWING ROOMS TRADITIONAL FUNERALS TRANSFER OUT OF STATE PRE-PLANNING Helping Families Connect, Honor and Remember FULLERFUNERALHOME.COM NORTH NAPLES 592-1611 | EAST NAPLES 417-5000 THE DIVA DIARIESFrom now on, its up, up and away instead of hitting the roadThere was a time when I adored a road trip. My husband Todd and I would load up the car with our luggage, lots of beef jerky and a six pack of Red Bull and take off into the wild blue yonder with our sidekick, Gumby, on the dashboard. Todd would drive and I would read to him. Whether it was news articles about climate change or entire novels such as Pat Conroys South of Broad and Patrick Smiths epic tale of Florida pioneers, A Land Remembered, that was my job as copilot. Well, that, and dispensing chewing gum, navigating Google maps, checking the weather radar and asking Siri things like, Where is the closest rest stop? Either way, we made a good team. That is, until this last trip, after which we decided we will forever now pay money for airplane tickets, because road trips are for the birds or if not the birds, then most definitely for the young. We started our most recent journey on Christmas morning, when off to Sarasota we motored. After a fine afternoon with my Dad and family, we happily jumped back into the car and tooled off to Amelia Island north of Jacksonville for more festive holiday fun with Todds family. Strangely, however, that four-hour trip felt like six hours; maybe it was our backs or our necks, Im not certain. A mere 48 hours later, we were back in the car and headed toward Knoxville, Tenn., to enjoy a day or so with more friends and family. Along I-95 about near Charleston, S.C., I confessed to Todd that I was losing the will to live. Between the car claustrophobia, the bumpy interstate and the speeding semi-trucks, I wondered why we couldnt just stop at the nearest Red Roof Inn and call it a night. But like any good road warrior, he would not be deterred. Read me another article, honey, he said. That always takes your mind off things. I found an interesting piece in the New York Times online about aging and how people over 50 should stay close to home (unless theyre on a cruise) and read that to him for the next 45 minutes as he gripped the steering wheel and cursed aloud to every slow driver in the left lane and every tailgater on our bumper. After Asheville, N.C., the sun went down and the torrential rain began. Driving through the Smokey Mountains at night with the added bonus of thunderstorms is no joke. The only comfort being Klonopin (for me) and the fact that Todd grew up in East Tennessee. Honey, he said as he white-knuckled the wheel down the mountain, me and my buddies used to race these roads back when we were at UT. This is easypeasy. Meanwhile, I couldnt see a thing through the windshield despite all the Rain-X Todd had applied to it. I asked for prayers on Facebook (which was really lame, because in my opinion, you only have three times when you can ask for Facebook prayers, and you better be careful about your choices). Miraculously (thanks, Facebook!), we made it to Knoxville and had a truly wonderful Christmas visit with my mother-in-law. But 24 hours later, we were back in the car YET AGAIN. We took off at 6 a.m., just in time for more brutal thunderstorms (through Atlanta this time whee!) and maddening stop-and-go traffic on I-75 from Gainesville all the way through Tampa (but, as you know if youve ever driven it, the scenery along the interstate from Gainesville to Tampa is awesome hahahaha!). The drive home, though, gave me plenty of time to look up fares on airlines like Frontier and Allegiant and compare them not only to the price of gasoline but also to the gray hairs and anxiety that road trips inflict upon me. I say give me an airplane any day. I wont have time to read you a novel, but short stories are better, anyway. That, and theres beverage cart service. And Bloody Marys and pretzels beat Red Bull and beef jerky every time. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org STEPHANIE DAVIS / FLORIDA WEEKLY Gumby covers his eyes going through Atlanta in a thunderstorm.

Huntington Bancshares Incorporated. MONEY & INVESTINGA look back as we look forward to 2016If I asked you to list a few of the important national and global events that happened in 2015, it might take you a few minutes to think of them. After all, it wasnt an election year, there werent any major wars that broke out, and the top sports story of the year involved the air pressure of a football. Yet there were some major events that transpired that will be remembered, I think, for years to come. The Supreme Courts ruling on the legality of gay marriage. The migrant crisis in Europe. Mass shootings across the country. Similarly, on the surface, 2015 was a subdued year across Wall Street. Stocks ended basically where they started. The bond market was flat to slightly down as well. However, there were some significant events and lessons to be learned by looking back over the year that should be examined. In my opinion, the most significant financial event in 2015 was the crash of commodity prices. We see this effect every time we fill our cars up with gas or pay our propane bills. But it wasnt just oil that saw a decline. Gold prices, steel prices and copper prices all fell as well. Each of these commodities had their own reasons for a drop in price. Oil fell because OPEC chose to support its share of the oil market as opposed to prices. Despite a glut of oil, OPEC (mainly Saudi Arabia) continues to export oil at a record pace in order to drive U.S. production down. Gold prices fell as inflation continued to be tame and the Fed started to increase short-term interest rates. And industrial metals fell because of Chinas slower than expected growth and the lack of new energy projects that rely on these metals. Lower commodity prices were a huge boost to the airline and transportation industries as well as well as to everyday consumers. But they were a devastating blow to the energy and material sectors, which laid off thousands of workers and saw their stock prices plummet. Another trend in 2015 was the absolute punishment of those investors who reached for high-yielding investments in a year of close to zero interest rates. Many people who traditionally put money in bank CDs instead turned to high-yield bonds and Energy Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) in order to achieve some kind of yield on their money. Instead, many of these investors took huge losses as high-yield bonds fell double digit percentages in 2015 and MLPs faired much worse. It turned out that these investments produced high yields for a reason: they were also highrisk. It turned out that a .5 percent bank CD was a winner after all. Last year was supposed to be a great year for stocks. The consumer was spending again. Interest rates were set to rise, which would cause funds to cycle out of bonds and into stocks. Companies were returning money to shareholders in record amounts via stock buybacks and increased dividends. Labor and material costs were still low. Yet the Dow Industrial Average and S&P ended down for the year. What happened? For one, energy companies were crushed, which put pressure on the entire index. And second, when expectations are so high you cant help but be disappointed even if things are pretty good. And there were definitely some bright spots. Companies like Netflix and Amazon and even Nike, GE, Home Depot and McDonalds all did very well this past year. But for the most part, 2015 was a year to forget for equities. Finally, 2015 was the year that the Fed finally raised rates. It was a day that was anticipated for months. But the day came and went and the sun rose in the east and set in the west the following day. Of course, banks immediately raised their prime lending rates but somehow forgot to simultaneously increase the rates they pay depositors. The lesson here, I think, is that as long as the market sees something coming from a mile away, it will be fine with it. It is the unexpected or the unknown that really spooks it. On a final note, I want to thank everyone for all of the support they have shown during my first year as a newspaper columnist. I have loved all of the great feedback I have received and I appreciate you all for reading my ramblings. If you have any suggestions for future topics or just want to send me a comment, shoot me an email. I wish everyone the best for 2016.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY says author and speaking coach Jane Atkinson. People spend top dollar to attend a well-presented speech and glean useful information from an inspired perspective, she adds. The best speakers might be regarded fairly as todays rock stars. However, as with rock stars, its a long way to the top if youre just starting. In her new book, The Wealthy Speaker 2.0, Ms. Atkinson outlines the three phases to becoming a paid speaker. Ready Picking a lane in your topic is the first step to becoming not only a paid speaker, but a wealthy one. Ask yourself the questions, What topic do I want to be known for five years from now? and Will someone pay me for that information? When someone is hiring a speaker to deliver a keynote speech for a conference, who is the more likely choice: a jack-of-all-trades or someone who hits the center of the bulls-eye on a topic? When picking a lane, consider delving into topics including leadership, engagement, corporate culture or communication. This is the phase in which youll want to really develop your bona fides, including your material and establishing the goal of how youd like to help your audience. Aim Here is the marketing phase that cannot be underappreciated. It includes aspects such as your website and what you do to drive traffic there. You might go after media exposure and produce a well-written blog with relevant content. Neither of those could hurt. But the most important way to market yourself is to do a truly excellent job with your actual speech. A good speech for a speaker is like a great pastry for a baker: A quality product speaks volumes itself. There is no better form of marketing than a great speech. Therefore, if you think your speech could use help, take care of it right away. No amount of marketing dollars, no fancy Facebook page and no ultra-cool website can overcome a mediocre presentation. Remember, though, that when you market yourself, youll want to include a number of materials, such as your brand, promise statement, photos, a bio and testimonials. Fire The third step involves identifying your target market and determining the best method to reach them. You need to roll out your product and continue to build momentum. Be ready to fire your message to your target market via a public relations campaign strategy. There are multiple ways of effectively getting good attention from the media, but dont believe all attention is good attention. Carefully consider your press releases. Ms. Atkinson says the mistake most speakers make is sending out a press release that does not answer the question: So what? It must be tied to something relevant into which the press can sink their teeth. If you feel as though you have something to offer audiences via oral presentations, then you probably do, Ms. Atkinson says.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Getting Kids Investment AccountsThe younger you are, the more time your invested dollars have to grow but theres a catch: Children cant have brokerage accounts of their own. Still, there are several ways kids can get started learning about and practicing investing. You can set up a custodial account for your child via the Uniform Gift to Minors Act (UGMA) or the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act (UTMA). The investments belong to them, but they cant take control of them until early adulthood. Until then, the custodian (probably you) controls the money for their benefit. These accounts can be a bit complicated, so read up on them before opening one.You might instead open a simple joint brokerage account, which you control until the child becomes an adult. Note that whoevers Social Security number is on the account will face taxes on any gains. Since your children are probably in a lower tax bracket, their numbers might be the best ones to use. Keep in mind, too, that when its time to apply for financial aid, colleges will want to draw more heavily from your childs accounts than from your own.Another great way to get kids started is through dividend reinvestment plans (and direct stock purchase plans). They allow you to buy small amounts of stock at a time, directly from companies themselves, bypassing brokers. Just ask a company youre interested in if it offers such plans. Before opening an account, learn more at fool.com/school/drips.htm, directinvesting.com and dripinvestor.com.Informal arrangements can work, too. If you own stock in Hasbro, you can sell your son a few shares. If youre buying 50 shares of Microsoft and your daughter wants to buy some, you can combine orders and buy 51 or 52 shares. Just keep track of which shares belong to whom. Once your kids become adults, they can open their own brokerage accounts and you can transfer their shares.Your kids can learn more about money with The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens by David and Tom Gardner with Selena Maranjian (Touchstone, $16). Beware Reverse SplitsMy dumbest investment was in NewLead Holdings. I bought 300 shares and then hung on after it had a 1-for-10 reverse stock split, hoping the company would turn things around. Z., onlineThe Fool Responds: Companies undergoing reverse splits are often troubled. With a regular stock split, shareholders get more shares of a stock, and the stock price is adjusted downward accordingly. If you own 100 shares of a $50 stock and it splits 2-for-1, youll end up with 200 shares of the stock, and its price will suddenly be $25 per share. Your overall stake remains the same 100 times $50 or 200 times $25. They both total $5,000. Its a way for the company to reduce its share price a bit, to make shares more affordable for some. Reverse splits are typically executed in order to prop up a share price. If a stock is trading for less than $5 per share, thats penny stock territory, and it can make the stock look risky. If a stock trading at $3 per share has a 1-for-10 reverse split and you own 100 shares, youll end up with just 10 shares, and their price will suddenly jump from $3 to $30 per share. The stock will look more respectable, but the company wont be any healthier. You should have held on to your shares only if you were confident the company would recover. Priceline Priced RightIf youre looking for a strong grower at a reasonable price, consider online travel giant Priceline (Nasdaq: PCLN). In Pricelines last quarter, gross travel bookings the total dollar value of travel services purchased by customers rose 7 percent year over year, totaling $15 billion. (In currency-adjusted terms, that would have been a 22 percent jump.) The headwinds the company has been facing, such as unfavorable currency exchange rates and fears of terrorism keeping some travelers home, are not likely to be permanent ones. Meanwhile, Priceline is aggressively investing in marketing and advertising, while working to expand internationally. It recently made its first investment in populous Brazil with a $60 million stake in a hotel-booking startup there. Another recent deal is with OnStar, to permit drivers to book hotel rooms while on the road. These investments can drive revenue growth for years into the future and can help Priceline battle competitors. Priceline is growing briskly, with revenue having roughly doubled in four years and net profit margins topping 25 percent. Its brands include Booking.com, priceline.com, agoda.com, rentalcars. com, KAYAK and OpenTable. Booking. coms platform has more than 820,000 hotels and other accommodations in 220 countries as of the third quarter, a yearover-year increase of 38 percent. Long-term investors stand a good chance of being rewarded very well by Priceline. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Priceline.) I trace my roots back to 1963 and a 500-squar e-foot beauty shop opened in Dallas. Today Im a giant in beauty, with 3.5 million independent beauty consultants worldwide generating about $4 billion in revenue annually. I launched my Career Car program in 1969, and more than 144,000 sales team members have qualified or requalified for one, logging close to 4 billion miles. Some 6,000 vehicles are on the road today, including about 1,300 ones of a certain color. A foundation bearing my name has given $54 million to organizations fighting cancer and violence against women. Who am I? (Answer: Mary Kay) Be Careful With Stock DilutionQWhat is stock dilution? T.N., Greenwood, South CarolinaAIts what happens when a company issues additional shares of its stock (via a secondary offering). That decreases the value of existing shares, because the more shares there are, the smaller the ownership stake each of them has. In a simplified example, imagine owning one of a companys three shares. If it issues a fourth share, you go from owning a third of the company to a quarter of it.Additional shares arent necessarily bad. Sometimes shares are issued to raise money used to generate additional sales and earnings perhaps by acquiring another company or building another factory. If so, then economic dilution might not occur. Some new shares do destroy company value, though. This can happen, for example, if shares are used to finance a merger that fails to meet expectations, or to overpay a CEO who hasnt helped the company grow and prosper. ***QIs it worth buying renters insurance? G.S., Wolfforth, TexasAIts a good idea to do so. Your landlords insurance will typically just cover the building itself, and not your personal property and your propertys value is probably greater than you think. Renters insurance can protect you against theft or damage, offer some personal liability protection, and maybe even pay for temporary housing if your apartment is damaged.When buying it, you specify the total dollar value of property you want to insure. Some policies will pay you enough to cover the depreciated value of various items at the time of loss, while others will cover replacement costs. The latter is much better. Renters insurance is often inexpensive, too. Learn more at bankrate. com/insurance.aspx and iii.org. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Gulfshore Playhouse presents Informed Consent, a drama written by Deborah Zoe Laufer and directed locally by Kristen Coury, on stage at The Norris Center Jan. 9-31. First produced at Cleveland Play House and the Geva Theatre Center in 2014, Informed Consert played at Primary Stages in New York City in 2015. Its the story of Jillian, a woman suffering from a disease that will steal her memory away from her, leaving her husband and small child helpless in the face of it. Its also about a Native American tribe warring against a myriad of challenges that have dramatically changed its way of life and battling the scientist who would steal secrets locked within the entity they hold most dear: their own blood. And finally, its a play about a scientist desperately trying to reconcile the means through which information is acquired, knowing that the consequence is people being hurt in the process. These stories unveil a universal truth about what defines a person and motivates someone to get up in the morning, to work harder, love better and play more. If those things were suddenly taken away, what becomes of The Muralist, takes place in the present and in 1940, during the birth of Abstract Expressionism.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSThe value of tensionI dated a nice young man early last year. He was kind and decent, a good father and upstanding member of the community. He courted me in a straightforward, polite way, and I enjoyed our time together. At that point I was six months in to writing my new book, and every week Id take pages to share with my writing group. Until I met this nice young man, my books story had been full of tension. The characters were gritty and rough, and the narrative unfolded in seedy places. It was a good read. But when I took my pages to my writing group after I met this nice man and we started dating, they looked at me with concerned expressions. This just isnt what we expect from you, they told me. The problem? All the tension had drained out of my story. Those gritty characters suddenly became gentle. They stopped fighting and cussing. They got good jobs. What happened? my critique group asked. I pretended as if I didnt know. But of course I knew. That nice young man was messing up my story. We eventually parted ways, he and I, and what followed was a turbulent time in my personal life. The suitors who came after him were unpredictable, and they left me tense and anxious. I didnt sleep well. I had trouble eating. But the pages I brought to my weekly group? This is much better, they said. Youve found your story. They were right. All the tension that had been missing from the narrative cropped up again. I was back in it, even if my own life was in tumult. Its true that the mythology of writers and artists includes a certain amount of drama, and that drama often revolves around addiction and promiscuity. I had always thought that great artists struggled with these issues as a way of numbing their demons. After all, it takes an unbalanced mind to sit in front of a blank page or canvas, day after day, creating a world from nothing. But what if its the other way around? What if instead of trying to soothe their demons, artists are actually trying to provoke them? Perhaps, on some level, we realize that a too-easy life never yields great work. My writer friend Laura is going through a particularly tough time man troubles, work troubles, family troubles but she said to me at dinner the other night, You know whats crazy? Ive written more in the last few days than I have in the last six months. I nodded sympathetically. Of course I understood. Sometimes I think we not just artists and writers, but everyone make the mistake of thinking we should aim for a life stripped of all tension. What a bloodless way to live. Thats why I encourage people to live wilder, to be bolder, to make mistakes and to tackle what frightens them. When it comes time to look back on our narratives, I guarantee that the parts with the most tension will be the most satisfying. And isnt that what matters?

ral Collier County Jewish Book Festival sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Collier County.) Ms. Shapiros previous novel, The Art Forger, was on The New York Times Bestseller List for 16 weeks in various formats. It deals with the theft of paintings at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and a fictional painter, Claire Roth, who forges a Degas painting. Earlier in her career, Ms. Shapiro wrote and published five psychological suspense novels. They were not classic mysteries, she says. They didnt sell very well. They were marketed as mysteries, but mystery readers didnt like them, because they didnt have the classic mystery structure. I decided to get out of that genre. The next book she wrote was contemporary womens fiction. Then she did a book that was half psychological suspense, half womens fiction. Then she wrote a thriller. None were published. I was very frustrated, she says. That was eight to 10 years of my life. I was ready to move on to another career. I thought, lets forget about the genre stuff and write a book I wanted to write. She was always interested in art and fascinated with history and, of course, she loved mysteries. The Art Forger combined all of those interests. The problem, however, was that publishers didnt know how to handle the book. Because it didnt fit into just one specific genre, they claimed, they wouldnt know how to market it. But Algonquin Books loved it and bought it. They werent afraid of a book that doesnt fit into a genre, Ms. Shapiro says. They got behind it and promoted it. Not only that, they sent her all over the country. She spoke at more than 200 events, she estimates. And the book all the big publishers had rejected wound up on The New York Times Bestseller List. Ms. Shapiro decided to write another non-genre book with the same elements in it, and produced The Muralist, which was released in November. The book appeared on various Best of lists, including USA Today, the BBC, Amazon and LibraryReads, and was a No. 1 IndieNext Pick for November. It also received starred reviews from BookList and Library Journal. In The Muralist, Dani Abrams is a cataloguer at Christies in the present day, and fictional artist Alizee Benoit is working for President Roosevelts WPA as a muralist in the 1940s. Alizee is also trying to bring her French Jewish family to the United States as Hitler is gaining more and more power. Then, she mysteriously disappears.Learning while writingThe novel is a different take on the history of Abstract Expressionism, told from a womans point of view and with soon-to-become famous painters such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko appearing as secondary characters. Alizee also crosses paths with Abstract Expressionist Lee Krasner and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. I pretty much didnt know anything about any of the topics in the book when I started, the author says. It took me four years to write this book. They say you should write what you know; this is my 11th novel, and I ran out of things I knew 10 books ago. What I do is write about what I want to learn about. If Im going to expend all this time, I damn well better be interested in it. She knew she wanted to write a book about art, and it would be historical, set during the Depression. That led me to the WPA, which led me to Krasner and Pollock and Rothko, which led me to Eleanor Roosevelt, which then led me to the political situation at the time, which led me to the development of Abstract Expressionism. When shes doing research, shes looking for the facts but also looking for the stories within the facts, she says. She learned that when the WPA ended, all the WPA paintings were thrown out, and that Mrs. Roosevelts greatest regret in life was not helping the European refugees. So all that became part of her storyline. She visited the Pollock-Krasner home, now a museum, and also spoke with artists. I was trying to understand what it was that they were doing, and how they felt about creating abstract art rather than representational art, she says. She has one of her characters explain about painting abstract art: It goes deep. Much deeper than just a picture of what we can already see. Its magical, really. Interpreting whats going on inside. And then putting it on the outside. And she has a representational painter say to Pollock: Just because youre doing something different doesnt mean youre doing something good. (And his retort: Just because youre doing something that pleases the old guard doesnt mean youre doing something good.)Finding a villainOne major strand of The Muralist deals with the United States reluctance to get involved with the war in Europe and its restrictions on accepting refugees. (Isolationists claimed that the immigrants would take jobs from Americans and that some were German spies in disguise.) In her research, Ms. Shapiro discovered that Assistant Secretary of State Breckenridge Long deliberately obstructed laws Congress had passed and was instead committed to keeping as many immigrants out of the U.S. as possible. Everything in her novel, with the exception of the assassination attempt on Mr. Long, is true, Ms. Shapiro says. Nobody knows about him, she says. When I started reading about him, I thought, Im going to get this guy, make him the villain of the book. And I did that purposely. That was part of the plan, to reveal (what he had done.) If Mr. Long had allowed immigrants entry to the county as he was supposed to, and if he hadnt lied about how many visas he was authorizing (far fewer than he claimed), hundreds of thousands of people wouldve been saved from Hitlers concentration camps. He was never brought to justice. He retired from the State Department toward the end of World War II, went to a horse farm in Maryland and collected antiques, says Ms. Shapiro bitterly. When she finished writing The Muralist a year and a half ago, what was foremost on her mind was history repeating itself with war. The Syrian refugee crisis was not happening, she says. Now people are responding to the (book), a lot of people are reaching out Im getting a lot of emails from individual readers who just love it and are touched by it. Muslims are reaching out to me and saying, This is our story, too. This is whats happening now. Its touched this universal nerve. Ms. Shapiro is now working on her third art-history-mystery book. This one will be set in 1920 in Paris and Philadelphia and deal with the Post-Impressionists and early Modernists. I decided on creating my own nongenre genre, she says. And its working out pretty well for her.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 FLORIDA WRITERSPlane crash investigation leads to an unusual theory and shocking surprises Passenger 19 by Ward Larsen. Oceanview Publishing. 336 pages. Hardcover, $26.95.Ward Larsens latest is now labeled as A Jammer Davis Thriller, linking it with two of the authors previous novels. I, for one, approve the plan and am thrilled to imagine more such technothrillers. In this one, not only is Jammer assigned to investigate a plane crash, he is also out to save his daughter, Jen. She was on that flight but not accounted for after the crash, nor is another college girl, Kristin Stewart, with whom Jen had boarded the plane. The investigation, performed officially by Colombian authorities with Jammer constantly overstepping his role in the matter, reveals that the crash was not survivable. It also reveals the pilot and co-pilot, along with one other person who turns out to be a Secret Service agent, had been shot before the crash. Figuring out the who, the how and the why of this off-the-charts event takes Jammer and others on a dangerous journey. The examination of physical evidence and the exploration of countless what ifs lead to an unusual theory: The plane must have landed and taken off again and not because of an emergency, but rather according to plan. Not only a study in detection, Passenger 19 is a study in Colombia, its capital Bogot, and the dense rainforests. In a country where mob crime is among the largest businesses, those who wear official uniforms and hold government positions may or may not be trustworthy. Those who wear the uniforms or emblems of various paramilitary forces are likely to be private entrepreneurs who can be trusted to run illegal enterprises. The biggest, of course, are the drug cartels. Gaining ground are those in the kidnap-for-ransom business. When its discovered that one of the dead men in a pilots uniform is not the pilot who handled the original take-off (the uniform is too big), Jammer concludes that the first set-down of the plane was part of a hijacking. The crash, it follows, would have been designed to get rid of witnesses. Eventually, Jammers grudging Colombian counterpart, a military officer who oversees air transportation issues, is found murdered. Looks like he was getting too close to something. With its carefully managed twists and turns of information, deduction and action, the plot keeps the pages flying. Even more impressive is Mr. Larsens handling of the technical material: the intricacies of aircraft design, handling characteristics and controls. As Jammer and others discuss these matters, examine the tortured parts of the downed plane and explore the crash landings impact on the terrain, readers are brought close to the analytical, scientific mind making its way through a myriad of facts to reach conclusions and determine actions. Mr. Larsen is as good as anyone Ive read in making such material convincing, accessible and highly engaging. That engagement provides one kind of suspense. Jammers anxiety about rescuing his daughter provides a more powerful lure. And then theres the mystery of the motive, which reaches to high U.S. government officials and their operatives. In the end, its all about Passenger 19 Kristin Stewart and why she is so important. Col. Alphonso Marquez, Jammers counterpart and liaison, is one of many highly individualized characters that populate this novel. He explains why the Colombian air force has taken over what seems to be a civilian matter. Marquez does have to work with a high-ranking police official, but their teamwork is something of a turf war. Gen. Larry Green, who acts as Jammers handler in the operation, is useful in giving us many shadings of Jammers character and reputation. Agents from several U.S. security agencies also get involved in the story, and it takes a while to find out why. One agent is actually called into play by Jammer. His sometimes girlfriend, Anna Sorensen of the CIA, can access the computer information Jammer needs in a hurry and she takes career-damaging chances in finding that information. Mr. Larsen handles their compromised relationship, how the demands of their careers rob them of secure intimacy, with efficiency and nuance. At various points in the novel, the author provides scenes that take us inside Kristin Stewarts identity and situation but you, dear reader, will have to get to those on your own. In the techno-thriller world, Mr. Larsen is at the top. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com LARSEN

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 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 Fascinating music documentaries go behind the scenesDuring some recent time off, I took what my mom would have called a busmans holiday. In other words, I did for pleasure what I would typically do for work. In my case, I read a bunch of books and binged on some TV series (the BBCs Happy Valley, Skys Fortitude and HBOs The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst). I also caught up on some music documentaries. Unfortunately, neither of the newest music documentaries I want to see has played yet locally (Janis: Little Girl Blue about Janis Joplin, and Miss Sharon Jones! about Sharon Jones and the DapKings.) But on vacation I did get to watch some that had been on my list for a while. Not long ago I saw Love & Mercy, a biopic about Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. To me, some of the most intriguing scenes in the movie were the ones where he composes and records the iconic Pet Sounds album. The rest of the Beach Boys were out on tour and its doubtful they could have performed the complex music he was writing anyway so Mr. Wilson hired The Wrecking Crew, a collection of top-notch, professional studio musicians who could play any kind of music, to work with him on Pet Sounds. Thats what led me to rent The Wrecking Crew during my recent respite from work. Its the 2008 documentary about the studio musicians who were heard on scores of hits in the 1960s through the mid 0s. They recorded Good Vibrations and Wouldnt It Be Nice, among many others, for the Beach Boys. They also played on the Mamas and the Papas California Dreamin and Monday, Monday, Nancy Sinatras These Boots Are Made for Walkin, The Ronettess Be My Baby and Sonny and Chers The Beat Goes On, just to name a few. The theme song to the TV show Bonanza? The Wrecking Crew. Ditto for The Pink Panther. Youve Lost that Lovin Feelin by the Righteous Brothers? It might have been called Phil Spectors Wall of Sound, but The Wrecking Crew played the music. They also recorded for performers as diverse as Frank Sinatra, The Monkees, The Byrds, Jan & Dean, The 5th Dimension, The Carpenters, The Association, The Grass Roots, John Denver, Cher, Simon & Garfunkel and Nat King Cole. The documentary was a labor of love, directed by Denny Tedesco, whose father, Tommy Tedesco, was a guitarist with the band. At times it seems more like a home movie, a son wanting to preserve his fathers legacy. But there are many moments to recommend. The younger Tedesco incorporated inter-view clips with Mr. Wilson, Herb Alpert, Jimmy Webb and Nancy Sinatra into the film and also interviewed some of the studio musicians themselves. Bassist Carol Kaye, the only woman in the crew, says they were so much in demand that at one point she was making more money than the president of the United States. The musicians not only played the sheet music they were given, but arranged it, often adding the riffs or hooks that made the songs hits. Ms. Kaye, for example, plays The Beat Goes On as it was originally given to them. Then she plays the bass riff underneath that she created the riff that gave the song its catchy groove. The Wrecking Crew also had a few musicians who became well known in their own right, including Mac Rebennack (Dr. John), Leon Russell and Glen Campbell (and yes, thats The Wrecking Crew again playing behind him in his own Wichita Lineman). I also caught Ill Be Me, the 2014 documentary about Mr. Campbells final tour. He had been diagnosed with Alzheimers, and his family agreed he should go on a farewell tour. While some might have felt that a cruel thing to do, the tour might possibly have kept Mr. Campbell functioning longer than he would have without it. It connected him to his first love of music, and it also allowed him to feel the love and acceptance of thousands of fans around the country. A tour they thought would last for five weeks ran for a year and a half, with Mr. Campbell performing 151 sold-out shows. Ill Be Me is, however, a heartbreaking film, because Alzheimers is a horrible, heartbreaking disease. I watched Muscle Shoals, (2013) about the funky, soulful music that came out of a small area of Alabama. Paul Simon loved the sound and called up requesting the same black players that played on Ill Take You There by The Staples Singers. With some amusement, hes told, That can happen, but these guys are mighty pale. The musicians of Muscle Shoals were white, Southern, good ol boys who knew how to groove. As Aretha Franklin says in the film, We just didnt expect them to be as funky or as greasy as they were. Her career got its big launch when she went down to Muscle Shoals and recorded there. (Shed previously been with Columbia Records, who didnt know what to do with her talent and had her recording smooth, easylistening songs instead of soul and R&B.) Other singers interviewed in the film include Mick Jagger and Keith Richards from The Rolling Stones, Bono of U2 and Steve Winwood (who recorded with them when he was with Traffic.) Muscle Shoals musicians also played for Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Solomon Burke, Etta James, Bob Dylan, Bob Seger, Rod Stewart, The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Each time a person went to Muscle Shoals, they came out of there with a hit, says Mr. Burke in the movie. And to round things out, I watched Good Ol Freda, (2013) a documentary about Freda Kelly, who was the head of The Beatles fan club. A native of Liverpool herself, she first saw The Beatles perform at the Cavern Club before they even recorded their first hit single. Shed go see them during her lunch break and estimates she saw them perform 190 times there. Though she was only 17, she was tapped by the groups manager, Brian Epstein, to be his secretary and the head of The Fab Fours fan club. Shes even mentioned by name on the bands 1963 Christmas message; when George Harrison gives a shout out to Ms. Kelly, the other three yell, Good ol Freda! which is where the title of the film comes from. Its a never-seen-before behind-thescenes view of The Beatles. Ms. Kelly took her job very seriously; shed get the actual hair from the barber when John, Paul, Ringo and George had their hair cut. She even fired someone for sending out someone elses hair to fans and claiming it came from The Beatles. A local girl, she was friendly with all four musicians; their parents treated her as a daughter. She was also very circumspect. Even now, when asked by director Ryan White if she ever dated any of them, she replies, with a twinkle in her eye, There are stories, but I wouldnt want anyones hair to fall out! She worked for The Beatles from 1961 to 1972. An anomaly in a world where most anyone would willingly sell their soul to be famous, Ms. Kelly could easily have made millions selling Beatles memorabilia or even writing a tell-all book, but she didnt. The only reason she agreed to making the film, she says, is because she now has a young grandson, and she wants him to know the true story of his grandmothers life during that time. Good Ol Freda is the first independent film to have successfully licensed original Beatles recordings a very rare thing, indeed, and a sign of the respect the remaining Beatles (and the estates of John Lennon and Mr. Harrison) have for her. When the film premiered at SXSW in Austin, Texas, Ms. Kelly received a five-minute standing ovation as the final credits were rolling. This endearing and charming movie will have you wanting to stand and applaud her as well.Nancys picksDont miss the opportunity to see The Ladybugs in concert at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15, at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers. The group performs songs from the 1920s, s and s, blending swing, jazz, country and blues. The concert is the last of the Kate Davis Concert Series. Bassist and vocalist Kate Davis has played at the center before and was also a featured artist at The Ringling International Arts Festival in Sarasota while she was still in college. I never miss an opportunity to see her. I cant decide which is more astounding: that shes playing here at an affordable price, or that her concerts are not sold out.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Dealing with someones disappointment can be difficult for Aquarians, who always try to avoid giving pain. But a full explanation and a show of sympathy can work wonders. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Getting a job-related matter past some major obstacles should be easier this week. A personal situation might take a surprising but not necessarily unwelcome turn by the weeks end. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects call for care in preparing material for submission. Although you might find it bothersome to go over what youve done, the fact is, rechecking could be worth your time and effort. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The week is favorable for Bovines who welcome change. New career opportunities wait to be checked out. You also might want to get started on that home makeover youve been considering. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might have to be extra careful to protect that surprise you have planned, thanks to a certain snoopy someone who wants to know more about your plans than youre willing to share. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Family ties are strong this week, although an old and still-unresolved problem might create some unpleasant moments. If so, look to straighten the situation out once and for all. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Although the Lion might see it as an act of loyalty and courage to hold on to an increasingly shaky position, it might be wiser to make changes now to prevent a possible meltdown later. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your gift for adding new people to your circle of friends works overtime this week, thanks largely to contacts you made during the holidays. A surprise awaits you at the weeks end. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Dont hide your talents. Its a good time to show what you can do to impress people who can do a lot for you. A dispute with a family member might still need some smoothing over. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be open with your colleagues about your plan to bring a workplace matter out into the open. Youll want their support, and theyll want to know how youll pull it off. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Trying to patch up an unraveling relationship is often easier said than done. But it helps to discuss and work out any problems that arise along the way. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be both a dreamer and a doer. You consider helping others to be an important part of your life.

CONTRACT BRIDGEA delicate operationBY STEVE BECKERUndoubtedly, your batting average as declarer would rise appreciably if you could see the defenders hands instead of having to guess the location of the missing high cards and the distribution of the suits. Sometimes, though, it isnt easy to find the winning line of play even with all 52 cards in view. Admittedly such hands are rare, but they are fascinating when they do arise. Here is such a case. West leads the queen of clubs against your four-heart contract, and you win with the ace. Probably the instinctive play at trick two is to lead a low diamond and finesse dummys nine after West follows low. This play does not succeed in the actual deal, because East wins with the ten and returns a trump. Eventually you lose three diamonds and a heart and go down one. Leading a diamond to the jack instead might backfire if it turned out that West had the ten. Oddly enough, the best approach by far is to enter dummy with a spade at trick two and lead the nine of diamonds. If East follows low, so do you, and your troubles are over (even if West is able to win with the ten). But if, as is likely in the actual case, East covers the nine with the ten, you play the queen. (It does East no good to rise with the king because the most you could then lose would be two diamonds and a heart.) West takes the queen with the ace but is stymied. He cannot afford to lead a trump, so lets say he returns a club. You ruff and lead another diamond. East wins and returns a trump, but you dont jeopardize the contract by taking a finesse. Instead, you win with the ace and ruff your last diamond to assure making four. In fact, this is the right line of play even if the East-West cards are not known, but it is hard in actual practice to resist leading diamonds initially from the South hand.

Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh) Eight scoundrels are trapped inside a Wyoming log cabin during a blizzard, and not all make it out alive. Writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) over writes and under edits, but darn if there isnt something deliciously cinematic about it. Rated R.Joy (Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper) With her personal and professional life a mess, Joy (Ms. Lawrence) invents a Miracle Mop that becomes a huge sensation if her family doesnt screw it up for her. Writer/ director David O. Russell (American Hustle) usually imbues his movies with a flair that makes them burst with life and energy, but thats oddly missing here. Rated PG-13.Carol 1/2(Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler) In the 1950s, Carol (Ms. Blanchett), whos about to divorce her husband (Mr. Chandler), finds herself attracted to a department store clerk (Ms. Mara) whos unsure of what she wants. The performances, costuming, production design and and musical score make this one of the best films of 2015. Rated R.The Big Short (Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Brad Pitt) The mortgage crisis and succeeding 2008 economic collapse are given fresh insight and explained clearly and comically in co-writer and director Adam McKays wonderful adaptation of Michael Lewis book. An absolute treat, it should be a Best Picture Oscar nominee. Rated R.Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/2(Daisy Ridley, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher) With Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) missing, General Organa (Ms. Fisher) sends a pilot (Oscar Isaac) to find him, only to bump into the villainous Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), who wants Luke dead. The visual effects and action are pretty standard, but the story goes in logical directions. Frustratingly, though, too much is left unexplained. Rated PG-13.Sisters 1/2(Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph) Sisters Kate (Ms. Fey) and Maura (Ms. Poehler) throw one last grand party in their old house before their parents sell it. Its not consistently funny, but fans of Ms. Fey and Ms. Poehler will find it amusing enough. Rated R. In the Heart of the Sea (Chris Hemsworth, Brendan Gleeson, Benjamin Walker) Presented as the story that inspired Moby Dick, a whaling boat captain (Mr. Walker) and his first mate (Mr. Hemsworth) try to keep their men alive after being attacked by a 100-foot sperm whale. The storys flashback structure does it a disservice, and the action is only so-so. Rated PG-13.

Hours subject to change. Offer expires January 14, 2016. HAPPY HOUR 5-7 LATEST FILMSThe Revenant1/2Is it worth $10? YesAs long as you can still grab a breath, you fight, Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) tells his ailing son Hawk (Forrest Goodluck) in the opening moments of The Revenant, the latest from Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. They are words that Glass himself will soon live by, and an apt message for anyone struggling through a hardship. Such words also describe the troubled production of the film. It was shot in chronological order over the span of nine months in (mostly) northern Canada using only natural light, meaning they could only shoot for small portions of each day. Mr. DiCaprio got the flu multiple times, and some c rewmembers quit due to harsh conditions (one called it a living hell). Whats more, the budget soared to $135 million and weather was a constant headache (even a makeup bag froze to the floor). None of this, of course, should matter to viewers in the end, because the movie is either good or it isnt. While the acting and cinematography are tremendous, watching The Revenant is an altogether unpleasant experience. When its over youll feel dirty and like you need a shower. Theres not one scene, moment or even glimpse of happiness. The entire picture is a glum exercise in survival that only gets worse, never better. Its based on a true story in which Mr. DiCaprios character is a fur trapper on a hunting expedition thats under constant threat of attack from the Natives and French hunters. Its the 1820s in a lawless land, and the more fur pelts you bring home to sell, the better. While separated from his group, Glass is mauled by a grizzly bear in one of the most frightening, brutal and horrifying scenes you can imagine; three weeks of rehearsal and a computer-generated bear make this a sequence you will not soon forget. While Glass is cared for by his fellow hunters, hes also slowing them down. Believing Glass death is near, the captain (Domhnall Gleeson) asks Chip (Will Poulter) and Fitzgerald (an excellent Tom Hardy) to stay behind with the teenage Hawk and Glass to make sure Glass gets a proper burial. Fearing attack, Fitzgerald panics, kills Hawk and buries Glass alive before leaving to catch up with the other men. What proceeds is nearly two hours of Glass struggling to find those who wronged him and enact his revenge, all while terribly injured and battling the elements. Smaller moments, such as Glass trying to drink water only to have it come out through the gash the bear left in his neck, may be more notable, but consider Mr. DiCaprios performance as a whole: He goes about an hour with no dialog at all, relying on his bearded, marred face and heavy breathing to relay all that Glass is thinking and feeling. His character also endures freezing rapids, starvation, frigid temperatures, constant danger and falling off a cliff. Most of the time all we hear is groaning and struggling, and in a way that says it all. Mr. Inarritu and Mark L. Smiths screenplay (based in part on the novel by Michael Punke) doesnt need to give Glass more dialog because his motivations are obvious: Survive and avenge. One reason Glass desperation feels so palpably real is two-time Oscar-winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity), who creates a bold and daring visual experience. His camera moves swiftly and fluidly amongst the men and the landscape, with frequent close-ups of characters showing the anguish felt by all due to the elements. Note how low-angle shots that look up to faces, often with trees high above their heads, and shots of mountains and other natural elements all suggest how insignificant humans are to their larger surroundings. They might be fighting one another, but the common enemy of nature is their biggest foe of all. At 156 minutes, The Revenant is an endurance test to sit through. Glass journey takes him from one near escape to the next, and after a while the awfulness of his situation becomes overwhelming. This is a bold and daring movie, an original tale told with real guts and conviction, but its not enjoyable to watch. And yet theres so much to admire about it that you cannot deny its uniqueness and all that it does well. You might not like The Revenant, but you will respect it. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> A lack of snow led to a six-week shooting hiatus that shifted the production of The Revenant to Patagonia, Argentina, and added an unexpected $10 million to the budget.

Locally produced Hybrids wins for comedy at family film festival SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYLocally produced independent film Hybrids recently won the Best Feature Comedy Film Award at the 20th annual International Family Film Festival. Written and co-produced by local screenwriter and Hollywood veteran Tony Schweikle, Hybrids is a familyfriendly horror movie spoof staring Paul Sorvino and Carolyn Hennessy. The film was shot entirely in Ave Maria during the summer of 2014. It recently scored a distribution deal with Fairway Film Alliance and Tugg International. Mr. Schweikle, who worked in the film industry in several capacities over the years in production and at one point served as film commissioner of Southwest Colorado, decided to capitalize on the supernatural craze a few years ago. I didnt want to do another documentary, though, he said. I wanted to do a feature film, and I liked the genre of witches because it was so hot. So were vampires and zombies. Hybrids is about a dysfunctional family that has produced two children who are a witch and a vampire. After growing tired of living a sheltered life in the dark woods of Washington, the siblings run away to sunny Florida to pursue their dreams. Chuck Ardezzone, owner of ITZ Productions and ITZ Media Group in Naples, was an associate producer and acted as Vini in the film. He said the 30-day shoot in Ave Maria created more than 50 jobs and involved 34 local businesses. Almost all the shooting locations were contained in a three-story building and its exterior provided by Barron Collier Companies. When you can do that, its kind of like having your own back lot in Hollywood. It was an ideal setup, and thats why we were able to do it for the money we did. Mr. Schweikle said. More than 100 films from 17 countries were screened at the three-day International Family Film Festival at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, Calif., in early November. Mr. Schweikle said distribution of Hybrids will start early this year in the United Kingdom and Australia, with the United States following shortly after.

The Naples Players present Other Desert Cities, a Pulitzer Prize finalist written by Jon Robin Baitz, Jan. 13-Feb. 7, on the main stage at the Sugden Community Theatre. Emmy Award-winning director Chris Goutman directs the production. The Wyeth family appears to have it all: wealth, political influence and A-list connections. Although they seem to be living the dream in Palm Springs, Calif., their carefully crafted facade teeters on the brink when daughter Brooke reveals the impending publication of her tellall memoir. With crackling wit and razor-sharp one-liners, Other Desert Cities explores the fault lines that exist between privacy, artistic expression, explosive family secrets and the truth. Mary Masterman stars in the TNP production as Polly Wyeth, the conservative Republican matriarch of the Wyeth family. TNP veteran actor and adult acting teacher Diane Davis is Silda Grauman, Pollys fresh-out-of-rehab sister. Another TNP regular, Michael Hennessey, plays Pollys doting husband, Lyman Wyeth. Jessica Walck, who has performed in and directed several TNP productions, takes on the role of the troubled Brooke, while Paul Nicodemi has the role of Brookes brother, Trip Wyeth. The Naples Players hold auditions for A Sleeping Country starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, at the Sugden Community Theatre. No appointments are necessary. The play by Melanie Marnich calls for two women ages 25-35, one of who will play multiple characters, and two men, one age 50-plus and one age 25-40 who will play multiple characters. Julia is plagued by chronic insomnia. Her manic psychiatrist Dr. Midge, who happens to be Julias best friend from childhood, is stumped for a meaningful diagnosis. When a rare and even fatal prognosis is discovered, Julia travels to Venice to meet the eccentric Countess Isabella Orsini in hopes of finding some answers from a family that suffers the same debilitating disease. What she learns on her journey awakens her to more than she ever expected. Rehearsals for A Sleeping Country begin Feb. 8 and performances are March 23-April 16 in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden. Perusal scripts are available at the box office with a $20 deposit. For more information, call 434-7340, ext. 10.

Learning to darn, mend and make samplers was part of the education for girls rich enough to go to school in a city. So every family had a sewing basket or table with all of the needles, thread, scissors and other small items used when sewing. The main room of the house, near a fireplace or st ove, often was the place chosen to keep the sewing supplies, and the wife did the sewing in the evening while chatting with her family. The sewing box was attractive, often a skillfully crafted wooden box or even a table with a lift top that opened to a bag that held fabrics. But sometimes the sewing box was imaginative, made in the shape of a house or covered in painted designs. At a 2015 auction, a decorated folkart Victorian sewing box was offered for sale. The houseshaped box had a fabriccovered pin cushion in the center of the roof, which opened to expose a compartmented liftout tray. The house had a brick foundation, front porch and windows with shutters. It was in a 20-by-2-inch yard with a picket fence. It looks like a dollhouse, so it must have been tempting for children to try to see inside. It sold for $3,075 at the Skinner sale in Boston. Q: We got a personal Camel cigarettes tin ashtray from my husbands aunt several years ago. We still have the original box it came in. His aunt came from a time when women couldnt smoke in public and she had to sneak her cigarettes. What is it worth? A: This portable tin Camel cigarette case is small enough to fit into a pocket or purse. When you push in the bottom of the box, the retractable ashtray slides out and the cigarette rest pops out. They sell online for about $6 to $12. Q: I have a large cup with a handle that has writing and pictures on it. There is a poem on one side. On the other side is a bundle of wheat sheaves in a circle and the words In No, this isnt a dollhouse. It is a Victorian sewing box worth $3,075. The roof covers a tray with sewing implements and thread, important tools in the days when home sewing was important.

Four pictures of farm implements are around the circle. The cup is marked on the bottom Adams, Est. 1657, England. Is it old or valuable? A: Your cup was made by William Adams and Sons, which was founded in Staffordshire, England, in 1769. The date in the mark refers to an earlier pottery founded by John Adams, a relative. William Adams and Sons became part of the Wedgwood Group in 1966. The name Adams was used on some items through 1998. This large cup is sometimes called a mush cup and sometimes just a large coffee cup. It was made in the late-19th or early 20th century, and sells today for about $30, double if there is a saucer. Q: Im looking for information on a chair made by the B.L. Marble Chair Co. of Bedford, Ohio Can you help? A: The company was founded by Barzilla L. Marble. He worked at two other Bedford furniture makers before going into partnership with A.L. Shattuck to found The Marble and Shattuck Chair Company in 1885. Marble founded the B.L. Marble Chair Co. in 1894, making wooden chairs. The company made office furniture beginning in 1910. It merged with The Dictaphone Corporation in 1965 and the name became The Marble Imperial Furniture Company. The company went out of business in 1985. Q: My dad was given a wooden boat model built by prisoners when he was the administrator of the Leesburg Prison Farm in Leesburg, New Jersey, in the late 1940s. It was a gift. Its a cabin cruiser, 36 inches long, and is in good condition. Id like to know where I might be able to sell it. A: Prison art is collectible. If you search the words prison art online, youll find several sites that sell prison art or buy it. Some prisons offer art therapy or art lessons for prisoners, while others provide the time or materials for the prisoner to produce art on his own. A Tennessee art college worked with prisoners on death row to create work for a gallery showing. Richard Matt, a convicted murderer serving time in an upstate New York prison, did portraits of movie stars and other famous people based on photographs. He bartered some of his paintings and drawings for tools he used in his escape. Those who sell prison art must buy it first. One of the sites might buy your boat. Tip: Candle drippings can be removed from fabric or furniture with the help of ice cubes. Rub the wax with the ice until the wax hardens. Scrape off the hard wax with a credit card or stiff cardboard. If some wax remains, put a blotter over it and then iron with a cool iron.

THURSDAY SATURDAY 8:00 P.M. SUNDAY 2:00 P.M. IN BLACKBURN HALL Sponsored by: 13 Years Voted Best Live Theatre scott SIMMONS email@example.com COLLECTORS CORNEROne thing we all have in common: We think our treasures are just thatAntiques are the great equalizer. I never realized it until recently. The one thing many of us have in common is that we possess an item we think may be worth something. And many of us want to know how to sell it. Unfortunately, much of the value we assign to things is tied to sentiment Grandma always displayed that in the living room cabinet. Grandpa said Abraham Lincoln gave this to his grandpa during the Civil War. And so on. But markets shift and that priceless cut-glass vase for which Grandma paid serious bucks in the 1960s may well be worth less than what she paid half a century ago. And that gift from Lincoln? Family lore has a way of evolving. Perhaps it did come from our 16th president. Or not. So how do you know when you do have a treasure? Look it up. A simple Google search can reveal much, as can eBay I call it the worlds marketplace. Do an advanced search and look up completed items to see what similar pieces have fetched at auction. Keep in mind that prices may be higher or lower, depending on market situations. In South Florida, for example, fewer and fewer people are collecting things, probably because of the economic crisis and probably because they sold their antiques they left their homes up North. If you think you truly have treasure, pay to get the item appraised, and remember: No legitimate appraiser will charge you for an appraisal then offer to buy your items. I recommend people seek out an appraiser through a trade group such as The International Society of Appraisers (isa-appraisers. org), which holds members to ethical standards. Remember that a dealer typically can afford to pay you no more than 20 percent or so of what he or she expects to fetch retail, except on more expensive items. Many appraisers can help you broker an expensive item for auction or consignment in a market where it can fetch top dollar. Otherwise, get the piece out, display it and enjoy it. My guess is Grandma was on to something.

Grand Opening of our Blue milk glass vase in the shape of a hand is a Victorian design that probably dates from the early to mid-20th century. LOOK WHAT I FOUNDThe Find: A blue milk glass hand vase Bought: Judys Antiques & Jewelry, 12710 McGregor Blvd., No. 3, Fort Myers; 481-9600. Cost: $55 The Skinny: Weve got to hand it to whoever made this vase at nearly 12 inches high, its one of the largest weve seen in quite some time. Its in a soulful robins egg blue glass that some folks call opaline. But we wont call it that because it does not have the fire of opalescence, as does the best of opaline glass. We cant quite put a finger on when it was made. Thats the problem with a popular motif. This shape first was made in Victorian times. And the design was oft repeated. Weve seen any number of small ones produced by Fenton, Imperial and other companies. But its not often we see these large vases. Were guessing this dates from the 20th century American glass companies repeated this motif throughout the 1930s, s and s. As for the epitome of cool, this nails it.

The Full Menu: sushithaitoo.com The Details: Why, oh, why do we always get the urge for an impromptu dinner date during season? How can we possibly forget the headache that accompanies the search for a single parking space at any restaurant? We even marveled at how clear the streets were. How nave could we be? Of course, everyone had already made their reservations and was enjoying appetizers while my husband and I gnawed hungrily at each others patience. We watched a single car pull out of Sushi-Thais parking lot and thought aha! A free space means they probably have a free table. Our intuition was right: A solitary table was open. We congratulated ourselves with a Sushi Boat for Two, much to the astonishment of the wait staff (Too much food! they exclaimed). But we knew what we were doing. We sunk that boat in record time, taking down four varieties of sashimi, salmon and cucumbers dressed in a sesame-mirin sauce, a J.B. roll, a California roll and several pieces of nigiri topped with shrimp, krab, eel, tuna, salmon and escolar. One more thing: I once went on a date with a guy who insisted on shooting his sake. Tip: Dont. Also, order your own, because no one likes to share.

Offer expires January 14, 2016. HAPPY HOUR 5-7 DINNER FOR 2 $39.95 VINOSolving the prosecco puzzleAs Yul Brynner said in The King and I, Its a puzzlement. The puzzle is why we insist on saving our enjoyment of champagnes and other sparkling wines for special occasions. Of course, many of them are a bit expensive, and weve all seen victorious sports teams celebrating their championships by dousing the coach with it and spraying it all over the locker room. But still There are tons of excellent sparkling wines from all over the world that can and should be enjoyed on a much more regular basis. First of all, theyre not overly expensive, and second, they pair really well with a wide variety of cuisines. There are sparkling whites and ross from the U.S. made with the same process used in champagne. Theres cava from Spain, sekt from Germany, cremant from Alsace and other regions and then theres prosecco. This sparkler is made mainly in the Valdobbiadene region, around the hill town of Conigliano, just north and a bit west of Venice. As youd expect, its fairly close to the mountains, the climate is cooler, so the area is perfect for growing the acidic white grapes ideal for sparkling wines. The main grape is called glera. Often, producers will throw in a little pinot bianco or pinot grigio. Unlike champagne, the bubbles are produced by the Charmat method, which involves fermenting the crushed grapes in tightly sealed stainless steel tanks. Since the CO2 released by the fermentation cant escape, it goes back into the liquid and creates the carbonation. As you may expect, its a less expensive production method than the complex and time-consuming process used in champagne-style wines. But thats OK, because most of it is dry and lemony; the flavors and enjoyment are very much there, and they span a wide range of styles. With prosecco, theres something for everyone to like. We had the opportunity to sample several styles recently, with the following results and recommendations. La Gioiosa Prosecco Treviso Spumante The grape is 100 percent glera. This wine is pale yellow in the glass with a nose of mixed fruit and white flowers. Its nicely balanced on the palate and will go well with white fish and shellfish. Mionetto Prosecco Brut Also from the Treviso area, and also made completely from glera, it has the characteristic light straw color, but the fruit aromas and flavors tend more toward apple and peach. From a relative standpoint, this wine was slightly sweeter than the others, but only slightly. Jeio Prosecco Spumante Brut As with wines made with the champagne or traditional method, the brut designation means dry low sugar content, zippy acidity and a medium soft mouthfeel. In the glass this sample had a slight hint of green along with the straw yellow color, and apple notes similar to the Mionetto, along with a bit of apricot. There was a definite hint of white flowers. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

Read on to learn about Chef Sutton and how he keeps Veranda E one of the best-kept secrets in downtown Naples. Q: What inspired you to pursue culinary arts? A: I performed badly at bussing tables, so I landed in the kitchen, where I fell in love with colors, smells, textures and how it all affects all your senses. Q: Do you come from a family that enjoyed cooking? A: Yes. As a young man, I was inspired by the wonderful Southern-style meals my grandmother created with seasonal vegetables from her garden. Q: What is your professional background? A: I started washing dishes when I was 14. In the early 1980s, I worked for Chef Norbert Brandt, who blew my mind, in Austin, Texas. From there, I moved to Minnesota and eventually served as executive chef at Campiello in Minneapolis and Naples. I opened my own restaurants The Tropical Reef, Tasting Spoon Catering and Naples Cheesecake in 2001, and three seasons ago I came to my new home at The Veranda E at the Hotel Escalante. Q: How would you describe the menu youve created for Veranda E? A: Its a fusion of flavors from around the world, but it has a foundation in French techniques. There are items from our own 3,000-square-foot organic garden as well as French truffles, Scottish trout, Hawaiian day boat fish, Georges Banks scallops, Japanese kosho uzu, Chinese noodles, African spices and Florida seafood. Q: What creations are you particularly proud of? A: The hot and crunchy grouper. Its grouper breaded in Corn Flakes and sauted with almonds, sesame seeds, ginger and a touch of chili flakes, served with a mango chutney. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: I cannot begin without mentioning my grandmother, who was an amazing Southern cook. She would cook from scratch for our large family without ever using a recipe just a little of this, maybe a little more of that and pulling things from the garden or from the farmers market. Everything was always fresh and delicious. As for my first professional mentor, it would be the aforementioned Chef Norbert Brandt. I went to work for him in Austin, Texas, when I was 18. He had just come from the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. He taught me how to cook from scratch, to use all of my senses and to always respect the food I am using. He taught me that with a good foundation of flavor, you can make anything taste amazing. A few years later, I needed a change of scenery and moved to Minneapolis and worked for Jay Sparks at Campiello. One day while I was watching a pot of glazing vegetables, I remember them being so beautiful. Its probably odd to most people, but they started out raw and dull and transformed into a glistening, aromatic and alive base for the short ribs. We talked about the passion and artistry that takes a raw, rough product and transforms it by building on each layer until it becomes a complete dish. He said that was like life: We add an experience here and there as we develop into a chef of many layers. He was able to turn good cooks into good chefs. Q: What has been one your favorite culinary experiences? A: I have had a lot of memorable dining experiences. Recently, I spent a morning in upstate New York harvesting potatoes, tomatoes, greens beans and herbs from a friends backyard before we ventured to the local farmers markets. We eventually came back to our hosts kitchen to sample her homemade prosci utto, w hich she aged in her temperature-controlled basement, and create a meal from it. There was also the raw meal I had with my brotherin-law in his home in Bari, Italy, where we feasted on sea urchin, shrimp and anchovies caught that day in the Adriatic Sea. Q: Any exciting plans for this years tourist season? A: We are trying to go fully organic, and we also have a new Paleo menu and some vegan options. Our vision includes increasing the use of locally sourced products, particularly growing our own produce and working closely with local organic growers like Nick Batty of Inyoni Farms, Rene at Oakes Organics, and Colusa Farms. We also look forward to sponsoring classes on healthy living, using organic food items, juicing and developing the restaurant into a destination for healthy escapes while continuing to bring in the best foods the world has to offer. Q: What are your favorite resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes exciting and relevant? A: The resources I like to use are the people in my life. I have my cookbooks, the Internet and cooking shows to inspire me, but I get ideas from my employees talking about a dish their mom used to make, or a customer that has a certain allergy or favorite memory or a friend that likes raw food. They all take me down a path that we explore in the kitchen. Its those things and those people where the passion lives. My job as a chef is to teach my cooks and my servers so they can teach our guests or their friends and their children. Most importantly, they teach me and lead me to the true passion and love that food is. Food is a special thing: Its part of our lives, its part of our heritage, its the memories we grow up with and the new memories we make. Some eat to survive, but for people for whom food is passion and love and a celebration of life, we survive to eat and truly live. COURTESY PHOTOBryan Sutton lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com
