Naples civic leader and philanthropist Alan Korest has been named Hodges University Humanitarian of the Year for 2016. Chosen unanimously by the selection committee comprised of past award winners, Mr. Korest joins a distinguished fraternity of Collier County citizens who have had a profound, positive impact of the quality of life in our community, Phil Memoli, vice president of university advancement at Hodges U., said. The award will be presented at the 20th annual Humanitarian of the Year Luncheon on Tuesday, March 22, at the Naples Grande. Born in Illinois and raised in Detroit, Mr. Korest was the first RTISTS OPEN UP THE WORLD TO US, SHOW US WE WHO ARE and who were not and who we wish to be.

In some cases, a certain work can even change us, dismantle who we thought we were or thought we knew about ourselves or the world and reassemble us in the form of an artists vision.

COMMENTARY Letters to Bill Murray (from the Ted Cruz diaries)Dear Bill, I know Ive said this before, but I think we have a lot in common. Have you noticed how much I look like you, Bill? Im good at jokes, too. I say funny things in front of people all the time. But they dont laugh. What am I going to do to make them laugh? Please help, Teddy Cruz Dear Teddy, Who are you again? Oh wait, yeah. Youre that wannabe comedian from Texas. What funny things? Dont give up your day job just yet. Bill Dear Bill, Like it or not, youre my role model. And, ah, Id like you to take a paternity test, I think you might be my old man, too. But never mind that now. Im having a crisis of confidence. I cant make them laugh. I need your help. Yours literally and figuratively, Ted Dear Ted, I repeat: What funny things? I am not your father that is not funny, Ted, thats just, well, man, stupid. I am not your brother, either. I am probably not even a member of the same species as you. Funny. You mean like that time you said, Ive spent the last month in Washington, D.C., and its terrific to be back in America? Look, Ted, theres this thing called geography. Or that time you said, When my father came over here penniless with $100 sewn into his underwear? Thats not funny, either, Ted, its just bad math. They dont teach geography or math at Princeton? And then you added, thank God some well-meaning liberal didnt put his arm around him and say, Let me take care of you. Teddy, look. I know you dont like gay marriage or co-habitation between unmarried men and women or liberals who have sex, even though my species we call ourselves human beings, by the way has been doing it for four million years. OK, fine. But if youre going to make jokes about liberal homosexual sugar daddies who put their arms around men with money in their underwear, like your father, and turn them into gays so they could never father the likes of you, thats not how you do it. And let me just repeat: I AM NOT YOUR FATHER. I dont keep money in my underwear. Never have. Underwear is for keeping other things. Usually jewels. Not money. I use a bank for that. Love you, stay in Texas, permanently, Bill Dear Bill, Aw, lighten up, daddy-o. How about that time when Obummer started talking about raising minimum wage? And I said, I think the minimum wage consistently hurts the most vulnerable? You know that was funny, Bill. Or that time when Pope Francis said we should abolish the death penalty and I pulled that great joke out of my hat? Im standing there looking pitiful, like you, and Im keeping a straight face and arching my brows like a homeless little dog, the way you do, and Im looking the camera right in the eye, and I say, I believe the death penalty is a recognition of the preciousness of human life!? It was genius, Bill, genius! The death penalty is a recognition of the preciousness of human life. Man, that was good. But they thought I was serious. What am I going to do, papa Bill? Yours in the family way (your family way),Ted Ted, Youre right, that was funny. Real funny. F-U-N-N-Y funny. Go away, Teddy. Forever. Bill P.S. Remember that thing you said once, My touchstone for every question is the Constitution? No, Teddy. Just, No. What happens when your wife asks you what you want to do tonight? Gotta touch the Constitution, baby. Or she asks what you want to eat? The Constitution, sweet cheeks. Are you a freak, Ted? Or maybe youre just sentimental, a dreamscaper. Heres what I told Rolling Stone about that: Sentimentality to me is a symbol that weve left the planet. OK, bye-bye. Let me know when you come back because youre no longer here. You left. It reminds me of being at a funeral, like my dad dies and the grief is just overpowering. And all anyone can say to you is, Well, hes probably up there in heaven, bowling with Uncle George. Its like, Yeah, thats probably it. Hes up there bowling with Uncle George. Hes dead. Hes gone. What am I going to do? Talk to ME. Dont make up your own dreamscape. Stay here with me, will you? Dont go away. Thats how to be funny, Teddy. Or real. With thanks to Andy Borowitz and The New Yorker magazine for style pointers, and to Nash Williams for noticing the Cruz-Murray connection. j p b a e t a roger MURRAY CRUZ

Saying that the refuge, established in 1908 by Theodore Roosevelt, is in the middle of nowhere makes it sound too centrally located. It is in southeastern Oregon, about 30 miles from the nearest town of Burns, population 2,722. Now the Bundy family notorious for its standoff with the feds at the familys Nevada ranch last year and sundry anti-government protesters have occupied the refuge and pronounced it the staging ground for an offensive against an oppressive federal government. Ammon Bundy vows to stay in the wildlife preserve for years. What brought the Bundys to Oregon is the case of the Hammonds, ranchers who were subjected to what appears to be a vindictive and unnecessary federal prosecution. The case deserves attention and protest, but the Bundys and their allies have brought discredit to the cause with their unlawful occupation of Malheur. Dwight and Steven Hammond of Harney County were convicted a couple of years ago for lighting two fires on their ranch (for entirely innocent reasons, they maintained) that spread onto federal property, causing negligible damage. The second fire burned all of an acre of public land. For this, they were, amazingly enough, prosecuted under an anti-terrorism statue and sent to jail. They served brief sentences that were less than whats required under the mandatory minimum because the trial judge thought five years for each of them would be wildly disproportionate. Nonetheless, the government appealed the sentences, and now the Hammonds the father, Dwight, is 73, and his son, Steven, 46 will serve roughly another four years in prison each. The Oregon Farm Bureau, not hitherto known for its terroristic sympathies, has taken up their case. The prosecution of the Hammonds comes against the backdrop of federal highhandedness and hostility to private economic activity allegedly in the area around the Malheur refuge specifically and certainly in the West generally. A protest in favor of the family over the weekend drew hundreds, who peaceably assembled, made their point and dispersed. The Bundys then split off to take over the (unstaffed) headquarters at the wildlife refuge. The Hammonds say the occupiers dont speak for them, and efforts to recruit the locals to join the takeover have been notably unsuccessful. More sinister is the talk from Ryan Bundy, another of the familys brothers, of potentially resisting by force if law enforcement tries to remove them. One hopes that this is self-dramatizing bluster, which is an occupational hazard of the kind of people who establish revolutionary enclaves. Last year, the Bundy ranch protesters were riven by rumors of imminent government drone attacks having evidently mistaken southeastern Nevada for the badlands of Yemen. The federal governments overweening policies in the West, and the related injustice apparently done to the Hammonds, are serious matters. The proper remedy in a free society of laws is, as always, to be found in peaceful agitation and persuasion, and ultimately the ballot box. Play-acting a revolution will only bring derision and should anyone take it too seriously, much worse. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION t n y r t p rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly The fire next timeIt is a relief to find cause for celebration this early in 2016. A cloud of unease followed us into the New Year, stoked by the rhetoric of fear, anger and bigotry that has weaponized the politics of the 2016 presidential campaign. Courageous voices of right and reason are their antidote. Visionary leaders of sound intellect, acting in good faith and goodwill, in pursuit of justice are proven to be, time and again, on the right side of history. Thus it is the civil rights legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is honored annually with a national celebration and federal holiday. Thousands of hours of community service are contributed in his memory on the third Monday in January. King paid the ultimate price for his passion for justice. He died in 1968, a victim of an assassins bullet, shot while standing and surveying the evening air on a balcony outside his second floor hotel room. Almost two decades passed before the legislation proposing the holiday was approved by Congress. The bills success followed an intensive lobbying effort by a national coalition supported by hundreds of thousands of people and thousands of organizations nationwide. Federal lawmakers passed the legislation with bipartisan support and the bill was signed by President Ronald Reagan in November, 1983. Nowadays, it would be hard to imagine the bills success, so poisonous is the political climate in Washington and the aversion to compromise that has become an article of faith among the ideologues dominant in Congress. The right wing zealots would accuse even President Reagan of betraying true conservative values, and tar the federal governments support of the holiday an intrusion on states rights. As it was, it took until the year 2000 before all 50 states also designated the federal holiday as a state holiday, South Carolina being the last holdout. In fact, several states found it a bridge-too-far to officially sanction the day to honor King. Instead, they created a multiple choice, holiday mash-up. Residents can exercise their preferences among several state options as reasons to celebrate. The alternatives include Robert E. Lees birthday, various dates of historical significance to the Confederacy or civil or human rights in general the homogenization or neutrality offered in the same spirit as the kindred clueless who transpose Black Lives Matter into All Lives Matter, thereby missing the point entirely. On the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, at the time King and civil rights activists were building the movement to challenge the racial status quo of segregation and inequality, James Baldwin published his bestseller, Fire the Next Time. It is an explosive revelation about the black experience in America. Baldwin wrote about growing up in Harlem, describing in powerful, emotional detail the de-humanizing effect of racism on his life and its horrific consequences for all African-Americans. The book is structured as a letter to Baldwins 15-year-old nephew. He counsels his young nephew about how to make it in the world he has been born into, a white world that unequivocally despises black people. Writes Baldwin, The brutality with which Negroes are treated in this country simply cannot be overstated, however unwilling white men may be to hear it. He expressed hope his nephew could build a better life but warned of the devastation and growing despair among black Americans if left unchecked by racial justice and equality of opportunity. The books title forewarns as much, taken from a slave song recreated from a biblical prophecy: God gave Noah the rainbow sign, No more water, the fire next time! Political pundits today are quick to say the anger, fear and vitriol being spewed so vociferously and with such stunning popularity is unprecedented in American politics but that isnt so. Snakes have always been in democracys Garden of Eden. The malevolent and cynical know how to wield prejudice to mobilize a path to power. They blame, seek a target and name the other that is to be feared and despised. They stir the discontent that smolders, burning embers in wait of a caustic breath, and then provoke the heat into flame. The flame grows in magnitude. It becomes a firestorm of hateful-filled attitudes and behaviors that threatens to reduce everything in its path to ash. We like to think we are mostly better than that, and then we get surprised by our own susceptibility to craven thoughts. A demagogue says bad is good and we believe them, if only to justify our premeditation of and desire to sin. Racial, ethnic, and cultural identity is becoming, in the words of The New York Times journalist Eduardo Porter, a main driver of political choice in American politics. It is a dangerous road we take that divides the nation against itself. Said Kings widow of her husbands legacy, As a nation chooses its heroes and heroines, a nation interprets its history and shapes its destiny. I am left wondering: Will the choices Americans make in 2016 be the fire next time? Next: Between the World and Me. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

ROOTED IN NAPLESSculptor is hoping to catch a thiefOn a page taken from a classic art heist novel, thieves were able to abscond with more than $200,000 in bronze sculpture from a local storage facility just before Christmas. Artist Ben Foster had recently arrived from his native Wyoming last month with plans to display and sell his pieces at several events between Naples and Sarasota over the next several weeks. Practically all of his inventory, supplies and transportation were lifted from iStorage at 3836 Tollgate Plaza on Dec. 22. It was pretty devastating, he said. We dont have anything at home we can use (to restock his inventory). Luckily, we had a few pieces coming in from the foundry and a few that were late arriving, but theyre smaller pieces. Devastating indeed. Because so much of our beautiful, Neapolitan life is supplied by hardworking, talented people, its easy to forget how much they have at stake when they stop here. Artists and performers who make a living in a similar fashion to Mr. Foster take up quite a bit of space in our seasonal economy. Think of this years schedules for ArtisNaples or CAPA: Their lineups barely scratch the surface of traveling talent visiting us over the next few months. I like to think artists make a good living touring, but it doesnt come without a huge investment of time, skill, energy, talent and risk lots and lots of risk when they hit the road with their sculptures, instruments, audio/visual equipment, costumes and other highly specific and not terribly replaceable tools of their trade. Mr. Foster specializes in life-sized bronze sculptures of wildlife, with each piece taking up to seven months to complete. By his estimate, it will take at least three years to restock his inventory if the stolen pieces arent recovered. Without inventory to display at the two seasons he participates in (winter here in Southwest Florida and summer in Vail and Aspen, Colo.) his business is in serious jeopardy. According to Mr. Foster, the last time he saw the car hauler he uses to transport about 40 sculptures was Dec. 12, and no one realized it was missing until he returned to the storage facility on Dec. 22 to claim some newly arrived pieces at the front office and retrieve some items from the trailer. He assumed that someone hauled it through a back entrance while he and his family took a brief vacation during the days leading up to Christmas. Collier County Sheriffs Office declined to comment because the investigation is still active, and phone calls to iStorage were not returned. The theft left Mr. Foster scrambling to supply his first show, the Estero Fine Art Show that took place Jan. 2-3. His exhibit tent and display stands, which CCSO valued at about $2,500, were also stolen. Luckily, he had a few late arrivals to sell and some past patrons in the area loaned him their pieces so he could provide examples of his work. The generosity of those who have purchased work from me in previous years and allowed me to display those pieces for the show really made it possible to even be there.

Here is a sampling of the work of 11 visual artists we want you to know about, painters, photographers and graphic artists picked by Florida Weekly editors and staff. Their work in one way or another moved us and made us want to look closer. We hope you will feel the same way.Francesco GilliaFrancesco Gillia grew up in Rome surrounded by statues and works that depict the classic human form. They still provide a source of inspiration for his work. That includes a series of realistic, larger than life female nudes he painted for a graduate school thesis in 2012 at Montana State University in Bozeman. As he continued the project, dozens of women who heard about it showed up at his studio asking to pose. Ive never posed before, I hate my body, I want to pose, Mr. Gillia said they told him. I think they saw that its about how beautiful the human body is, rather than stereotypes of female forms in popular culture. He made the nude figures larger than life, he said, in part to make them as big as the statues he loved as a child, to suggest classic beauty in realism, and to make it as if the viewer were a tiny child standing before his or her mother, a symbol of life. The paintings tend to make men uncomfortable, he has found. Usually the women, they get it right away. The men, it takes them a little bit, said Mr. Gillia, 43.He continues to paint and draw inspiration from male and female human forms, and teaches a workshop at Lee County Alliance for the Arts. His work is represented at Sheldon Fine Art gallery in Naples, on Facebook and at Myra RobertsMyra Robertss retro postcardpop paintings capture the whimsy of old Florida tourism and vintage imagery. Her oil paintings have sold internationally as well as locally, including to the late great Robert Rauschenberg. In 2006 he bought her portrait of Audrey Hepburn, telling her she had captured Ms. Hepburns spirit. A long-time Sanibel resident, Ms. Roberts, 64, is part nostalgist. But she delves into darker subjects as well. Her latest works of social commentary celebrate the heroes and victims of World War II in styles that include photo transfer, an homage to Mr. Rauschenberg. Some of her most daring pieces explore the famous American auto manufacturer Henry Fords welldocumented but underreported anti-Semitism and his connection to Adolf Hitler, a Ford admirer. Mr. Ford published dozens of newspaper articles disparaging Jews that he later collected into a book. The point is not that we should dismiss his achievements as an auto maker, Ms. Roberts said, but recognize a truth that, at the very least, complicates a man who is widely idolized, especially in Southwest Florida. Mr. Ford railed against Jewish refugees coming to America to escape Hitlers Germany. Its so much like today, Ms. Roberts said. People are being wiped out in Syria, innocent children. I think its important to note that really its the same old same old in a way. As we enjoy our big-screen TVs people dont have shoes to walk on the road because they had to flee their homes. And these are your average doctors, teachers, bakers For her work, Ms. Roberts was recognized by WGCUs 016 Makers: Women Who Make Southwest Florida. A PBS documentary about her life is scheduled to be televised this spring.

Andy HowlWith work that shows influences drawn from such diverse sources as comic books, Japanese myth, Americana and Pop art, Andy Howls work, whether hes tattooing it on skin or creating fine art in multiple mediums, is as evocative as it is fun. My taste is pretty much the same as it was back in art school and even before that, said Mr. Howl, 39. I like a lot of the really old engravers like Gustave Dor and Albrecht Drer. And newer work that has a similar kind of aesthetic, horror comic book artists like Charles Burns and Bernie Wrightson. Few young artists have done more to celebrate the arts in Southwest Florida. He co-founded the popular monthly River District event ArtWalk and founded MusicWalk. A graduate of Savanah College of Art & Design, he has become a champion of mixed media and Low-Brow art, featuring regular exhibits and concerts at HOWL Gallery/Tattoo since he and his wife, Alainna Zwiernik, opened the space in Fort Myers in 2008. In 2013, they moved the hybrid gallery/tattoo shop to a larger space across from the Edison Mall. See his work at and the gallerys current exhibit, The Devils Reign, on display at HOWL through mid-February. Danielle BranchaudA surrealist painter who studies the landscapes of the mind, Danielle Branchauds sometimes dark and contemplative imagination makes visible an inner universe of metaphor and intuition where anything is possible. Everything I do is inspired by dreams and dreamscapes and introspection, said Ms. Branchaud, 30. Working primarily with acrylics and on medium to large canvases, she is creating a new series of work scheduled to be shown in a solo exhibition at HOWL Gallery from Saturday, April 2, through May. The series, which she calls Psychopomp, sprung from her research into psychologist Carl Jungs archetypes. She has a really good eye, said gallery owner Mr. Howl. With a refined and illustrative sense of form, line and color, her work can at times blend classic human forms with dazzlingly colorful expressionist imagery. Combined with a survey of personal experience, her paintings have created a window through the eyes of the subconscious, into a place that illustrates those basest of instincts and emotions, reads a statement on her website, The nightmarish imagery used to illuminate those unconscious thoughts serve as further exploration into the things that make us human. Ms. Branchauds work may also be found on Facebook, at Art Bar in downtown Fort Myers, and at her studio by appointment. Marcus JansenMarcus Jansens big-canvas urban expressionist landscapes can be intriguing and complicated in their ambiguity. They sometimes also include anchoring images amid the ruins a distant oil derrick, for instance, or Mickey Mouse which suggest that his paintings are not made-up fictions but a form of reportage, commentary and critique on social, political and personal forces that hes wrestling with. A lot of times the paintings will tell me something that I dont know, and those are the ones that I like, he said. I want something that gets me involved. If it gets me involved, itll get you involved.SEE ART WATCH, A10 HOWL BRANCHAUD JANSEN Marcus Jansen Tattoo by Andy Howl Danielle Branchaud Tattoo by Andy Howl Danielle Branchaud NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 NEWS A9


An example of what might be on his mind as he works: genetically modified food, increasing surveillance due to threats and fear, the militarization of police and the environment. Mr. Jansen often finds American painters work too academic and unwilling to engage social forces. Street art is one antidote to that, he said, with Banksys work being the most well known example. He has also been inspired lately by German painters such as Jonathan Meese. His early inspirations include 1980s New York City graffiti artist West One. I think theres a sense of fear a lot of times with artists and even with myself of putting something out there that wont sell, that might be put down because its not good enough, he said, especially when he was younger (Mr. Jansen was born in 1968) and had not yet shot to the near legendary, international status where he finds himself now. But art has always been something that needs to question as far as Im concerned. And I try to do that as much as I can. Mr. Jansens home studio is on the eastern edge of downtown Fort Myers. Part of the 14,000-square-foot space, Unit A, is also open to the public by appointment. Marcus Jansen DECADE, a book about his life and work was released on Jan. 1, Marcus Jansen DECADE. A new documentary film by John Scoular, Examine and Report, is being released this year as well. Mr. Jansen is embarking on a museum tour that starts this year in Europe and continues in the U.S. in 2017. Dana RoesOften working on big canvases, Dana Roes explores the notion of voids; missing pieces, inaccessible or unknowable spaces, she writes in an artist statement. Put another way, Ms. Roes is an artist who is hard to categorize, following the work where it leads her, whether abstract or photorealistic pieces. One of her most personal works is TH1 from her 2013 series, Threshold. While the painting is of her mothers last breath, it is as intellectual as it is personal. I would hate it to take the spin of being sentimental, she said. Why I painted it? I couldnt tell you. I think I was wrestling with the image and I was trying to understand it, trying to figure it out through my work. And I think I was somewhat haunted by that image and I just wanted to materialize it and understand it a little. Of course I dont understand it any more than when I was experiencing it but I got to be a little more intimate with it. And strangely although its a literal image I think conceptually it had to do with everything that I paint about. Its always that space in between A trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art when she was young moved her to think about becoming an artist. There, she saw Composition VII by Wassily Kandinsky. Which is funny because I dont even care for his work but as a 15-year-old it just spoke to me in ways I didnt even understand, she said. And I spent the next 10 years trying to understand it. Ms. Roes is a professor at Florida SouthWestern State College in Lee County. She has exhibited throughout the United States and in Sweden, Australia, China and Iceland. Her work can be viewed at Michelle TriccaMichelle Triccas photographs might be taken from the perspective of an outsider, or an insider. She frames documentary-style images with a laid-back, soulful empathy that is both sharply observant and seemingly casual.

a part of her work, which is to say a part of her. Thats just my soul, said Ms. Tricca, 46. I grew up on the beach. I lived on the beach. I lived in Hawaii and worked in the surf industry. One series of pictures, Rehab, was taken in San Diego where she lived with five artist friends, some of whom had met at a drug and alcohol treatment center. As the house photographer, one Wednesday afternoon, she captured candid images of her roommates and some of their work. Another picture and one of her most personal is an image of the curvaceous butt of a professional swimmer. Its titled Bunda, a Brazilian Portuguese word for a womans sexy derriere. She originally used the picture for a T-shirt line. Its celebrating a womans full behind, basically, she said. And the reason I chose to put this on a T-shirt is I have a very curvy booty and I was always teased about it growing up. I grew up very self conscious about my curvy bum. Im so thankful for J. Lo and Beyonc because they made it cool to have a big butt. After moving to Naples to be near her parents she at first struggled with the change from the youth culture and open ocean beaches to which she was accustomed to the senior culture and subdued gulf waters off Southwest Florida. But one day she cracked open a fortune cookie that read, Listen to the wisdom of the old, and was inspired. Her latest project is about our elders and their wisdom. See her work at Barbara AlbinBarbara Albin is an intuitive abstract artist who has loved to create art since she received her first box of crayons as as little girl growing up in northern Illinois. To me, art has made me ageless, said Ms. Albin, who lives in Punta Gorda. My son turned 40 and I said, when did you get older than me? Lately she has been inspired by music, recognizing how the sounds of certain classical pieces or chants look visually on canvas. A few years ago I was asked to paint on stage for the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, she explained. When I heard the sounds I tried to visualize what color that is and what motion it looks like. I realized I had done that throughout my whole life but this focused it a little more intensely. She aims to capture the spiritual and mystical in her work, whether of California redwood trees or Florida palms. What Im painting is not necessary what you can see but what you cannot see, she said. Ms. Albin sold her first works at age 17 to Northern Illinois University, attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and has been in more than 400 juried and invitational shows during her career. Her work is represented at Arts for Act Gallery in Fort Myers through Feb. 2 at Sea Grape Gallery in Punta Gorda and WildChild Art Gallery in Matlacha. JAMA JAMAs bold geometric forms and rich colors reveal an artist whose obsessions and influences tie together philosophy, art, literature, Cuba and America into a singular, searching vision. Jose Andres Mato Alonso was born in 1974 in Havana, Cuba. Since leaving the country in 2002 to be near his family in Naples, the painter, photographer, sculptor and printmaker has come to terms with what it means to be a Cuban American and to find the thread and harmony between geometric anarchy and order. Answering Florida Weekly questions by email, he wrote, I have discovered abstract forms through geometry that make sense to me because they offer questions about the form of the abstract universe. Aristotle is one of his greatest sources of inspiration, as well as Pythagoras, Einstein and Plato, painters such as Goya, Kandinsky, Rothko, Penck, Lam, Basquiat, and poets including Homer, Shakespeare, Poe, Marti, Paz and Kafka. I think the most challenging aspect of art is that it is never ending, it never ceases to search, he said. And with it every day we learn. He has also continued to learn, over the last decade, what it means to be a Cuban American artist. Ever since I arrived in Miami I have felt very proud of the work done by immigrants who came SEE ART WATCH, A12 COURTESY PHOTOSThe Other Dream by Barbara Albin Pills by JAMA NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 NEWS A11


before me. I did not fit in the political system of Cuba. This is why I have built my career as an artist in Miami, in exile, and why I have become a Cuban American artist. I am proud of this. Im actually two things: One is in love with Cuba and the other is in love with this country. And another love is the work itself, which ultimately becomes something bigger than artist. The painting process demands its needs, the same way children demand in life, he wrote. Each work of art has a character, an identity, a life, its own ugliness, or its own beauty. I discover this and respect it. Each painting, at its moment, is the most important and no matter its beauty or ugliness what matters is its character. I love American expressionism because of the strong character of its works. You can find his current work on Saatchi Art: Helen GerroA fine artist and couture fashion designer based in Punta Gorda, Helen Gerro taps into her vivid imagination for inspiration. I always painted what I wanted to see, not what I saw, said Ms. Gerro, 59. I wasnt a realism painter. I always just paint from my imagination. I dont paint from a life form. And so it came from me all of my paintings pretty much. A self-taught artist, Ms. Gerro started out making clothes that her classmates wanted to buy. Later her sketches of clothing turned into paintings, including watercolors, acrylic and oil on canvas. In the 1980s she lived in Manhattan and sold work to department stores and boutiques, before moving to Florida in 2002 to be closer to relatives. She worked in alterations but after Hurricane Charley in 2004 was moved to get back to the artistic work she loved and started painting jeans, which became one of her most popular items. Then she developed a line of painted dresses as well. Shes working on licensing her artwork to major department stores. Her designs have been featured on runways in Fort Myers, Tampa, Sarasota, Naples, Miami, Minneapolis, Atlanta and New York. You can see her work at the Artisans Atelier in downtown Punta Gorda and Her work will be featured at Sidney & Berne Davis Center at the Art Walks the Runway fashion show on Saturday, Feb. 27.

The humanitarian award is given in recognition of outstanding community involvement, dedication to the cause of American-Israeli friendship and devotion to peace and security of human life. This years recipients are Anthony Solomon and David Braverman. These two young men assumed the title of co-president for JNF in Southwest Florida and provided us with youth, imagination, and energy, board member Hank Greenberg says of the honorees. They exhibited purposeful and directed leadership that allowed us to move forward at an accelerated rate in providing financial aid to the many services and facilities we support and maintain that are so sorely needed in the land of Israel. Mr. Braverman has served on the boards for the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, Temple Shalom, the National Kidney Foundation and the Jewish Federation of Collier County. His other philanthropic ventures include the Community School of Naples, The ALS Association and Seacrest County Day School. Mr. Solomon has been the co-president of JNF in Southwest Florida for the past four years. He is the executive vice president and owner of The Ronto Group, a property development company in Southwest Florida. JNF work in Israel is varied in scope but focused on bringing an enhanced quality of life to all of Israels residents and translating these advancements to the world beyond. JNF greens the desert with millions of trees, builds inclusive parks, creates new communities and cities for generations of Israelis to call home, bolsters Israels water supply, helps to develop innovative arid-agriculture techniques and educates both young and old about the founding and importance of Israel. The Tree of Life evening will also honor Dr. Bernard Lublin with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his dedication to the Naples community and JNF. The award is bestowed on an exceptional and senior community leader who, throughout his or her life, has become a symbol of Jewish and non-Jewish philanthropy and tzedakah through giving back to the community. Dr. Lublin is a past board president of JNF in Southwest Florida, a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and a past chairman of the Virginia Board of the Anti-Defamation League. He served on the national board of the American Technion Society and participated in the Naples Jewish Federations humanitarian mission to Cuba and the 2003 ORT mission to Argentina. Upon retiring from orthopaedics, he pursued a second career in the field of breast cancer and focused on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations that those of Jewish decent are more susceptible to than the greater population. Gideon Meir, who served as Israels Ambassador to Italy from 2006-12, will be the evenings guest speaker.

(2) Among the activists denouncing a proposed solarpanel farm at a December Woodland (North Carolina) Town Council meeting were a husband and wife certain that vegetation near the panels would die because the panels would (the husband said) suck up all the energy from the sun. His wife (described as a retired science teacher) explained that the solar panels prevent photosynthesis (and also, of course, cause cancer). The council voted a moratorium on the panels.Recent recurring themes Paul Stenstrom of Tarpon Springs, Fla., is among the most recent Americans to have discovered the brightest side of federal bankruptcy law, having lived in his mortgaged home basically free of charge from 2002 until 2013 by using the law to stave off foreclosure. Even though none of his 15 petitions was ever approved, he followed each one immediately with another petition, and it was not until 2013 that one judge finally declared Mr. Stenstrom a serially abusive filer, barring further petitions for two years at which point his bank was able to conclude the foreclosure. Upon expiration of the two-year period in September 2015, Mr. Stenstrom quickly filed another bankruptcy petition to keep from being evicted from the townhouse on whose rent he is four months behind. Bright Ideas: In October, once again, police (this time in Liyang in eastern China) arrested a man whom they accused of stealing womens underwear, prolifically, with a device likened to a fishing rod, enabling him to reach into windows and extract goodies. The suspect, 32, admitted to a three-year scheme, and in his van police found 285 bras and 185 panties. In December, Carlos Aguilera, 27, became the most recent brain-surgery patient to assist doctors by remaining conscious during the 12-hour operation and playing his saxophone to help assure surgeons that their removal of a tumor was not affecting his speech, hearing or movement. The operation, at Spains Malaga Regional Hospital, was supposedly Europes first, but News of the Weird has reported two in the United States, including on a guitar-strumming man in 2013 at UCLA Medical Center. Though New York Citys waiting list for subsidized housing stands at more than 300,000, the agency still has only nominal ability to evict a tenant who once qualified but subsequently became wealthier, and the latest beneficiary of those rules, according to a November WPIX-TV report, is a household that reported earning $497,911 in a recent year. Initially, one housing authority official declared it beneficial that such a mixture of income levels occupy subsidized housing so that struggling families would not have only other struggling families for neighbors but public pressure has made the authority reconsider.Least-competent criminals Nurses aide Candace McCray, 36, is the most recent theft suspect to have worn some of the purloined jewelry when meeting police detectives investigating the theft. An assisted-living resident in Palm Beach Gardens, had described her missing gems, and Ms. McCray was questioned as someone with access to the womans room. Joshua Jording, 26, in Latrobe, Pa., became the most recent burglary suspect caught on surveillance video during the crime wearing a shirt with his name on it (which was later found in Mr. Jordings home, along with a stash from the Dec. 2 burglary). Albert Luna, 19, was arrested in Coachella, Calif., in December and charged with swiping the keys while a Federal Express driver was unloading a package. The driver reported that Mr. Luna later walked away when he could not figure out how to drive the truck. (Bonus: The arrest report noted that during the entire episode, Mr. Luna was naked.) Kyle Blair, 25, was arrested in Surrey, British Columbia, in November when he approached a car at an intersection and attempted to pull the driver out. For one thing, the two men in the car were later described as big, burly guys, but more important, they were plainclothes police officers on a stakeout. Syrian refugees (mostly, Muslims) may pose a humanitarian and political crisis for Germany, but the Virginia Care company of Recklinghausen, Germany, said they are good for its business: sales of fake hymens, for women to convince Muslim grooms to believe they were wedding-night virgins. The non-chaste Virginia Care buyer inserts a packet of two membranes (about $54) that will burst by penetrative sex, releasing blood coloring. (The blood is available either in original dark brownish red, which parents are said to expect, or advanced brighter red, thought to be more satisfying to husbands.) Mendel Epstein (Lakewood, N.J.) is not the only rabbi suspected of being overaggressive as he helps desperate wives obtain religiously proper divorces, but he will be headed to prison for 10 years after a federal court found that he used beatings, stun guns and, once, an electric cattle prod to convince reluctant husbands they should sign the papers. Orthodox Jewish wives cannot remarry properly without obtaining a get, and Rabbi Epstein was apparently very convincing. (According to trial evidence, he used the services of four thugs.) Over the years, Rabbi Epstein confessed in court, I guess I got caught up in my tough-guy image. Another Way to Tell If Youre Really, Really Drunk: Her passengers had run away, leaving Elena Bartman-Wallman, 23, behind the wheel but oblivious on a December afternoon in Aleknagik, Alaska, and her cars tires had started to smoke. She had lodged her foot against the accelerator, facing the wrong way on the road, with her wheels spinning continuously, and by the time police arrived (to discover Ms. Bartman-Wallman passed out), the front tires had melted down to the rims.

Room 103ALincoln aims two crossover at one goalThis is one of the most interesting gambles in the luxury car game today. Lincoln has redesigned its MKX crossover to look just like its little brother MKC. In fact, it is difficult to tell the difference between the two cars pictured and that may be the exact intent. The MKC (seen in white) and MKX (seen in silver) are not the product of a lazy pen that built two alphabet soup cars out of one drawing. Instead, this is an extreme example of how a uniform corporate design language is more of a factor in luxury vehicles than the older staples such as size, speed or flair. Both of these vehicles are aimed at luxury buyers who dont need to seat more than five people and have the right size to attract urban buyers. The base price gap between the MKC and the MKX is only $5,000 ($33,260 and $38,260, respectively.) This creates a situation where Lincoln is betting it can cover more consumer ground as long as they like the styling. For example, if a buyer comes in looking for an MKC, but then decides she wants more interior room, it will be an easy transition to the MKX. Conversely, if a potential customer cannot afford the payments on a loaded MKX, he might not notice the difference in stepping down to a more reasonable and similar-looking MKC. It gives these two crossovers a cannibalistic attitude within the dealership, but it also means Lincoln has more variety to offer consumers within a price class. The interiors are strikingly similar. They both give the driver the same soft leather wrapped steering wheel with radio and infotainment controls attached. This sits in front of a gauge package that utilizes LED screens to offer info on everything from what song is playing to what set of wheels are being powered if its equipped with optional all-wheel drive. These utilize the same touchscreen HD radio system thats logically divided into setting for audio, Bluetooth phone, climate control and navigation all on the same panel. They even have Lincolns new pushbutton gearshift that moves the transmission selector to a vertical stack on the dash. Some drivers might miss the performance feeling of the usual gearstick, but these are not likely Lincolns traditionally laid-back clientele. Both models also get a similar list of options that make these near-twins distinctive compared to rest of the luxury market. This includes features like a panoramic sunroof, pre-collision warning alarm, and an active park assist system that allows either crossover to parallel park itself. This long option list also creates a large price overlap between the two car lines. It forges an interesting unity where a loaded MKC and more basic MKX may both be within budget, which likely aids in tailoring a vehicle to a customers needs. Where decisions will often be made is on size needs. The larger MKX is 7.5 inches longer and has 6.3 more inches of wheelbase. This translates into 2.8 inches more rear legroom and 12 more cubic feet of cargo space. Another large distinction between the two Lincolns is in the engine bay. The smaller MKC has a choice of naturally aspirated and turbocharged fourcylinder motors. The MKX comes with regular and turbo V6s that offer on average 22 percent more horsepower than its little brothers lineup. Both feel like mature cars on the road, but the lighter MKC feels sprightlier. The MKX has a more authoritative feel from its extra power, which also supports a larger towing capacity. At the end of the day, these cars are too similar not to put them in a headto-head comparison. The MKX has a bit more grunt on the street and a few more luxurious interior appointments to justify the extra initial cost. But these two vehicles, in total, give Lincoln the ability to cut a wide swath allowing young urbanites, upper-middle class families and luxury-minded retirees to dial-in their ideal price and size. Now all Lincoln needs to do is make sure it is betting on the right singular design. BEHIND THE WHEEL

There, he came to understand the importance of education, later calling it the single most important part of our lives. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Navy, attending the Officers Candidate School and serving in air reconnaissance over the South China Sea during the Korean War. After serving three years, he worked for his fathers small business before starting his own company specializing in industrial sales and manufacturing in 1958 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He served as its CEO for nearly 25 years before selling the company to his employees and retiring. He and his late wife, Marilyn, moved to Naples in 1983. Since then, Mr. Korest has served in countless civic capacities, including as a Naples city councilman and vice mayor to There, I learned how important it is for good people to become involved, he said. Leaders should listen to what others say and work collaboratively, and, of course, should have an active sense of humor. He has also been involved with The Education Foundation-Champions For Learning, the Florida Gulf Coast University Foundation, the Forum Club (as a co-founder and president), the Collier County Tourist Development Council, Big Cypress Basin, the board of directors at Moorings Park and the Collier County Metropolitan Planning Organization. The Korests envisioned and oversaw the creation of the Bower Chapel at Moorings Park, which was donated to the community by his late father-in-law, Edwin Bower. My father-in-law was the most unselfishly generous person Ive ever met, and he taught me just how important philanthropy is, Mr. Korest said. It is our job to do good and to enjoy doing it while we are here. In 2006, the Korests founded the Bower School of Music (now the Bower School of Music and the Arts) at FGCU, donating $2.5 million to its creation. In less than a decade, students from the school have twice appeared in Carnegie Hall. Hodges U.

Even though numerous locations through Collier County serve as drop-off sites, people must take the meds to those places. Not so anymore, at least for a limited time. Drug Free Collier has been chosen as part of a pilot project of Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America for the free distribution of a biodegradable pouch capable of neutralizing old and/ or unwanted household and prescription medicines using only simple tap water. Called Deterra, the pouch is produced by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. Drug Free Collier has received 10,000 of the pouches to give to local residents who request them. Medicines found in the home are a leading cause of unintentional deaths and poisonings in Collier County each year, said Melanie Black, DFC executive director. Deterra provides a quick, safe and simple solution to disposing of these drugs for residents unable to travel to one of our drop boxes. Local partners in the Deterra initiative include the Collier County Sheriffs Office, Collier County EMS, North Collier Fire Control and Rescue, Marco Island Fire Rescue; Collier County Solid & Hazardous Waste Management and Straighten Up Inc.

While some things in life are complicated and practicing proper parenting can be tricky, imparting the right dental habits to our kids shouldnt be. Even so, dentist Peter Vanstrom says a tradition of bad oral health habits continues to plague many households. For example, many people still believe that hard-bristled toothbrushes are the way to go, and that rigorous brushing is a good method for getting the mouth reliably clean, Dr. Vanstrom said. But thats wrong. Today, were seeing more and more people in their 20s and 30s with receding gums and other problems that could be avoided. A dental consultant for CNN as well as a member of the editorial board for WebMD, Dr. Vanstrom offers these tips for parents to set a good example for their childrens lasting dental health. Ditch hard-bristled toothbrushes. Dont be someone who takes out their aggressions on your teeth while brushing especially if youre an older person. Over time, forceful brushing with hard bristles can accelerate gum recession, which may increase sensitivity. The soft-but-firm is the way to go in a toothbrush. That can be accomplished by using a much higher count of soft bristles. With this kind of brush, you can actually improve gum health by gently messaging them, which stimulates blood flow to the area, Dr. Vanstrom said. Im seeing more patients suffer from gum recession and disease at a younger age, including some in their 20s and 30s. Thats why its important to implement good habits when kids are young. Avoid a negative stigma toward oral hygiene. In many homes, brushing is considered a chore, probably because parents see it that way, Dr. Vanstrom said. An easy way to take the work out of oral hygiene is to have easy-to-use products that feel good. Fun products that are visually stimulating are good for smaller children, who are usually more prone to making a game out of brushing and flossing time. Be mindful of the development of casual bad habits. For many, especially children, its easy to develop bad oral habits such as thumb-sucking, nail-biting, straw-chewing, ice-crunching and teeth-grinding, to name some. And, because theyre not as strong as adults, children may be prone to using their teeth to open plastic bags and such. Of course, the habits of our childhood often stay with us in adulthood, so lead first by example, and make sure your child doesnt pick up these habits on their own or through someone else, Dr. Vanstrom stresses.

No. 1: The patient-as-consumer revolution will expand Facilitated by transparency and enabled by the Internet and the digitalization of medical records, patients who are now responsible for growing deductibles and co-pays will shop online for better quality and service at a lower cost. Players outside the traditional health care community (i.e., Apple, Google, Walmart and CVS) will lead this revolution. No. 2: Medicares march to alternative payment models (APM) and the merit-based incentive payment system (MIPS) is real Medicare has announced plans to shift more than 50 percent of payments from traditional fee for service or volume to bundled payments or value. Seven of the next largest health insurers plan to follow suit. NCH will have bundled Medicare payments for total knee and total hip replacements starting this spring. Over the next decade, payment may vary by as much as plus or minus 9 percent under MIPS. These changes in payment will have a profound effect on physicians, hospitals, post-acute care providers and how we collaborate. No. 3: Digitalization of health care will improve The potential of the electronic health record is still underappreciated. Most physicians and others involved in health care realize that medical records need to be securely available and can facilitate evidence-based medicine. A focus of NCH and our information technology partner Cerner is to decrease the number of clicks and avoid the artificial barrier of a computer between patient and physician or non-physician caregiver. No. 4: Non-physician providers will continue to flourish Three-quarters of patients say they would be comfortable seeing a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. Half would be comfortable going to a pharmacist instead of a doctor for many services. The supply of primary care nurse practitioners and physician assistants is expected to increase by 30 percent and 58 percent respectively during the next five years, according to a recent PricewaterhouseCoopers study. No. 5: Big data will have a big influence going forward Now that most of health care has been digitalized, we can convert data to information and use the knowledge gleaned to lower risk, prevent illness, diagnose earlier, improve prognosis and achieve better outc omes. Even in this era of hyper-change, we tend to overestimate what will happen in one year and underestimate what will happen in five years. One thing that has not changed, however, is our focus on helping everyone live a longer, happier and healthier life. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

PAGE 26 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 Barbara M. Pizzolato, Esq. BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickThe holidays are over, youre back at work or school and youre still enthusiastic about your new years resolution to get in better shape. I think most of us commit to some version of that resolution every year: to exercise more, take up a new activity, eat right. Include your pet in that fitness resolution, and youll improve his health, performance and longevity, says veterinary sports medicine specialist Cindy Otto, DVM. My cavalier Harper and I started a little early with this resolution when we attended a working dog fitness class last November, led by Dr. Otto. The exercises we learned are often taught to working dogs and canine athletes to help them stay agile and teach them body awareness, but any pet can benefit. I think pet dogs benefit even more because often theyre bored to tears, theyre fat and they dont have anything to mentally stimulate them, Dr. Otto says. I think the whole process, especially training and working with your dog, changes your relationship. A pet workout isnt that different from one you might do for yourself. It includes a warmup, stretching, balance exercises for core power, strength training and a cool down. You can take a fitness class with your dog or learn some simple strategies to work with him on your own, using equipment you may already have or can build easily. A warmup is as simple as walking your dog around for a few minutes to get the blood flowing (especially if he has been crated for any length of time), some active stretches such as downward dog (a play bow) and a counter stretch such as frog dog for groin muscles. A trick such as wave or high five is a good stretch for limbs and shoulders. Complete the warmup with some sits and downs and a rubdown to get the blood flowing. Balance exercises to build a strong core (think pupilates) include sitting up on the hind legs; walking a plank a board placed atop two balance discs so its a little wobbly when the pet crosses it; or standing on single or multiple balance discs. Core exercises can also be as simple as having your pet stand or walk on a sofa cushion or inflatable bed. Dogs need core strength to keep their spine and pelvis healthy and happy, Dr. Otto says. A lot of dogs end up losing their lives because of hind end weakness. Bad hips and bad backs are big causes of euthanasia. Balance work doesnt take long. Spend three to five minutes daily practicing these exercises with your pet. If your dog has a long back or doesnt have good control, be cautious and go slowly with difficult exercises such as sit pretty. Another important aspect of fitness is whats known as proprioception, or body awareness. Learning to back up, fitting all four feet in a box and spinning in both directions are all skills that can help to build this ability. Exercises for building strength and proprioception include walking up hills or walking sideways up hills. Backing up a hill strengthens the rear end while backing down a hill strengthens the front end. Other good strength exercises are pushups repeated sits and downs rolling over in both directions, crawling and trotting through the rungs of a ladder on the ground. Fit dogs have muscle tone, Dr. Otto says. Just being thin isnt enough. To find a class, do a web search for fitness class for pets. You can find classes for puppies, seniors and people and pets of all fitness levels. Dogs and cats can benefit from core and strength training.

And if not lawn dcor, at least we know folks whose trees remain in their living rooms well past Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I get it. Taking Christmas down isnt nearly as festive as putting it up. Decorating the tree is all about Christmas carols, yummy cookies and tasty cocktails. Taking it down means sacrificing a Sunday as you vacuum up pine needles, sad tinsel and attempt to store tangled twinkly lights into Tupperware bins better than you did the year before. Then theres the fact that in Southwest Florida, December runs like a runaway freight train straight into party season. Up North, the holidays mark the end of the sparkle. Up there, when January rolls around, folks put away their garland, their heels and their Spanx. Come the new year, they bring out their blankets, sweaters and flannel jammie pants and happily hibernate until springtime. But here in the bottom half of Florida, Christmas and the new year usher in a busy season of soirees, fundraisers and fancy to-dos. While our Northern friends bundle up in long sleeves until April, we have to contend with trying to achieve Michelle Obama arms in strapless gowns right after weve consumed a ridiculous amount of Christmas cookies and 14 gallons of eggnog. When it comes to new years resolutions eating low carb, drinking a gallon of water a day and completing those 10,000 steps daily on the FitBit we got for Christmas we have zero time between Christmas dinner, New Years Eve cocktails and the black-eyed peas and cornbread of New Years Day before were forced to squeeze into some godforsaken cocktail dress in mid-January. Its not fair. I sometimes think that seasons are for a reason. I think I would do better with my resolutions if in January I were holed up in my house with a fireplace and Netflix, as opposed to flitting from event to event, constantly tempted with brie cheese, pinot grigio and bacon-wrapped asparagus. As it is, Thanksgiving barrels into Christmas, which slams into the new year, which mercilessly smashes head on into party season. Finally, all the glitter will calm down around about May. Just in time for swimsuit season. Sigh. I plan on starting my healthy lifestyle resolutions somewhere around August, when here in Southwest Florida, hopefully, the holidays will finally, blessedly, be over. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

The first trading day of the year saw the Dow drop 277 points, the next day it rose 10 points, on Wednesday it dove 252 points, on Thursday it plummeted 392 points and on Friday it fell 167 points. So an average index investor has lost over 6 percent of the value of her portfolio in a week. Those investors who have invested heavily in energy, material or international companies have witnessed their portfolios drop in double-digit percentages. The crazy thing about this is that it has occurred in a week where another stellar jobs report came out announcing that the U.S. economy created another 292,000 jobs last month, bringing the total number of jobs created in 2015 to 2.7 million. So why the dismal start to 2016 and what can we expect in the weeks ahead?The reason behind the sour mood on Wall Street can be summed up in one word: China. More specifically, two events recently transpired that have spooked the market. First, the government has allowed the Chinese currency, the yuan, to depreciate significantly against the dollar and other global currencies. In fact, China has spent billions of dollars of its foreign reserves to make sure the depreciation happened. This was unexpected, as China had previously been strengthening its currency for years in order to show that the yuan could be a true reserve currency and to increase consumer consumption within the country. Many analysts have speculated that the government initiated this new policy because the Chinese economy is much weaker than people believe. China would then need a weaker currency to spur its manufacturing and export driven economy by making its goods cheaper for overseas buyers. This is not good for U.S. manufacturers who will have to compete again for even less expensive Chinese goods. And it is not good for U.S. multinational corporations like Apple who look to sell to Chinese consumers as the yuan has less purchasing power, making their goods more costly.The second incident in China recently was the complete meltdown of the Chinese stock market, which turned out to be a result of a mostly a self-inflicted wound. In 2015, the Chinese stock market was one of the most volatile in the world. To combat this volatility, the government initiated circuit breakers at the start of this year to decrease these wild price swings. In simple terms, if the market fell by more than 7 percent, these circuit breakers would kick in and actually stop trading in the market. The thought process was that it would give the market time to catch its breath and when the market would reopen, cooler heads would prevail. Unfortunately, it did the exact opposite. When the market started to fall, people began to worry that the circuit breakers would stop trading and so they immediately sold their shares so as not to be locked out of the market and be unable to sell. This selling caused the markets to fall even further and a vicious cycle ensued, which actually caused the circuit breakers to kick in. This happened again and again until the government, four days after installing the breakers, removed them and suddenly the markets stabilized. So should these two market events in China have caused so much damage to our stocks here in the U.S.? For companies like steel producers and oil explorers or Macau casino operators, a recession in China would be disastrous. There is already too much oil and steel in the global market and too few Chinese highrollers at the Baccarat tables. But for the rest of the U.S. economy, there should be a much lesser impact. Airlines, service companies that focus on domestic clients, restaurants, and companies like Walmart should all benefit from lower oil and commodity prices, low inflation and cheaper Chinese goods. So in a few months, we may all be kicking ourselves for not buying more high quality equities during this dip. But right now it is pretty scary. Happy new year indeed.

Please mail resumes to: Heartland Employment Service d/b/a HCR ManorCare, Ms. Emily Croak 333 N. Summit Street Toledo, OH 43604 Ref job #GB470639 in Collier County is near the heart of Naples, with a lot of tear-downs and people rebuilding. Its problematic because some people are using dartboard logic, he explains, a fact that could affect markets almost everywhere. One seller put a home on the market for $2.7 million for a year. He had an offer at $2.6, turned it down, and went shopping for a new agent. Now he wants $3.4, Mr. Grimes says. Thats called dartboard logic. Thats also human nature, observes Randy Thibault, president of Land Solutions, a company devoted to land development, new housing and new sales in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. Sellers who saw their property values tank five years ago might look at current conditions and assume that the market is booming says Mr. Thibault. That perception might make them too optimistic and they might want more now than the market can bear. My advice for sellers now is that 2016 is probably the right time to sell. Were at a place in the market where things have kind of peaked for a while. For buyers, if they plan on getting in the market and some may have gotten in a little late now is the time. Because, fact: interest rates are going up. Fact: prices of new homes have gone up 50 percent in the last year in some cases because of materials, labor and optimism. Sometimes too much optimism. Realtors have a joke they tell about dartboard logic, Mr. Grimes says. Question: How do you know a seller significantly overpriced their home? Answer: The neighbors agree with the asking price.NuancesIn each market there are nuances factors that suggest national figures for home prices are constructs, not literal representations of markets here.Lee and Collier counties Mr. Grimes comparative analysis of Lee and Collier suggest some significant nuances, and differences, in those markets. Lee County sales were up 11 percent last year, he ways, while Naplesarea sales were up about 3 percent, in part because of price points: Collier has a median sales price of $405,000, which is almost double Lees $211,000 median. The irony is that some buyers who hear about the Naples-Fort Myers area and how nice Naples is fly into the Lee County airport, drive to Naples, then bounce back to Lee to buy a home when they see the prices, he says. In luxury sales, Collier has had a 54 percent increase in sales, while Lees is up 30 percent, Mr. Grimes says. That showed in figures produces at Premier Sothebys International Realty of Naples. All indicators point to sales values steadily increasing across all of our markets, says Judy Green, president and CEO at Premier Sothebys. Well maintain our focus on extraordinary customer service leveraged by high quality listings, while looking for ways to even further use technology to advance our services. At Sothebys, she reports, the average sales price increased 8 percent to about $1.1 million in 2015, and the volume of sales jumped to more than $4 billion, up from $3.4 billion in 2014, in part a result of the companys 20 percent increase in locations, to 34 in Florida and North Carolina. Another key nuance in Lee County and some other areas, meanwhile, may be inventory in November, inventory was down to 4.4 months, says Jason Jakus, president of the Realtors Association of Greater Fort Myers and the Beaches, and owner of NextHome Advisors. A balanced market would be five to seven months of inventory, he explains, and once you get below 5 percent, experts say youre in a sellers market. The average days-on-market of homes in the region was 44 three years ago, which dropped to 34 and is now running about 30, so buyers probably need to be decisive when they see something they like, he advises. There are more financing deals than before, too, Mr. Jakus explains three out of five purchases, which means the homes have to be appraised before the bank provides money, deflecting some dartboard pricing. And the sweet spot for buyers in the region now ranges between $250,00 and $500,000. Three years ago, says Denny Grimes, the median price in Lee was only $128,000, which means half the homes were more expensively valued and half were less. In 2015, the median was $211,000, or 65 percent higher. So we crossed the $200,000 barrier this year. All of which may suggest that home prices in the region will rise more quickly in 2016 than the national average suggests, just as they have been. That would happen in part because of a Lee County bubble a huge rise in home prices shortly before the recession hit that was among the highest in the country. It resulted in a terrible downside four or five years later: a foreclosure rate before 2010 that ranked the highest in the United States, and dropped prices so much that the return to steady growth and profits has required more dramatic jumps, say the experts. Where we were at the peak of the boom (almost a decade ago) was $329,000, recalls Mr. Grimes. So when you talk about the nation, median sales prices have surpassed the peak market of 2005 or 2006. Our values have not, however, and we dont want them to. Ours is a rational market now, recovering from artificially high numbers to artificially low. Id love to see it grow six or seven or eight percent this coming year, but not more than that.Charlotte CountyAlthough Sunshine State numbers are higher than that, about 8 percent, says Tom Weekes, a Realtor and analyst with his wife, Gay Weekes, at Keller Williams Peace River Partners, Charlotte County prices are most likely to reflect the national trend. Our numbers have been pretty consistent for several years, he explains, with sales running from a low of just over 2,000 in 2008 to a high of 4,500 this year, and as a retirement market an influx of baby boomers 62 or older expected to continue through 2023. Mr. Weekes expects prices to continue to go up at just over the national rate. But Charlotte County may be the only market without more significant nuances.Palm Beach In the town of Palm Beach, at the heart of Palm Beach County, national data might as well exist on another planet. The town of Palm Beach operates on its own heartbeat, explains Jeff Cloninger, senior broker associate at Sothebys International. The median sales price in 2014, at $3.475 million, was up 20 percent to $4.2 million for 2015, he says. And in Palm Beach County as a whole there were 12 and 14 percent increases in 2013 and 2014. The county appraisers office was estimating a similar increase by the end of 2015 though those numbers arent tallied yet. Part of what happened in the luxury homes market several years ago was confusion and uncertainty not lack of money, perhaps. There were a lot of frustrated buyers during the bad times, Mr. Cloninger points out, because no one knew which way prices were going. But those buyers who were sitting on their hands then, are out in droves now. Most startling of all, perhaps is that prices in Palm Beach (the town) now exceed those of the Florida boom almost a decade ago, but with one likely difference in the economic climate, he concludes: Prices will rise at a sustainable rate. Not in general the 25 percent appreciation of 2004 or 2005. Now were seeing more thoughtful, judicious study on the part of buyers. MARKETFrom page B1 Randy Thibault, owner of Land Solutions: The main theme we see in 2016 is this: Perception sometimes is not reality. There is a perception of many that the market is on re again, that weve recovered and were in a boom cycle. Thats partly true, but with a caveat: Be rational. There was so much hope for a market uptick in the last 36 months that when we saw double-digit per annum permit increases for multiand single-family new homes ranging from as high as 20 to almost 60 percent, many decided that we could continue that pace. Heres the not-so-good news: Thats what we believed in 2003 to 2004 that there was no limit. If you believe it will keep going up, that well be back to the levels of 2005 in three or four years, thats where trouble begins. But we (at Land Solutions) are excited because we went from only a few thousand permits in Lee, Collier or Charlotte in 2009, to this year. Now, were doing about 12,000, but thats far from the 45,000 we did in 2005. By comparison, in the year 2000 we pulled around 10,000 permits. So in 2015, nally, were back to stability, and thats a great thing. The concern is, when I market that as a new norm, thats where we run into trouble. So I think in 2016 that permits being pulled for new home sales and land sales are going to level off. We predict 13,000 to 14,000 permits this coming year. This is really good news. Because capitalism was going unchecked in 2005. Right now, we need a year to catch up in our market. We have much less labor than we need. Weve pushed the capability of our workforce to build new homes to its maximum now. CLONINGER GREEN

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Insurance Mistakes to AvoidSpending considerable money on various kinds of insurance is inevitable for most of us, but if were smart about it, we wont spend more or less than necessary. Here are some common insurance mistakes people make: Buying unnecessary insurance: Life insurance is critical if anyone depends on your income, such as kids, a spouse or even parents. It doesnt usually make sense to insure the lives of children, though, or even yourself if youre single and no one depends on your income. Flight insurance is generally unnecessary, too. Air travel is very safe especially compared to traveling by car yet people who dont carry sufficient auto insurance routinely buy flight insurance. Viewing life insurance as a lottery ticket: Another mistake is looking at life insurance as a way for your loved ones to get wildly rich. One rule of thumb is to be insured for five to 10 times your salary. For maximum peace of mind, and perhaps to cover future college expenses, you might consider getting more than that. Discontinuing necessary coverage: Many people, after paying for a policy for years, will stop if they become financially squeezed. This is dangerous, as it leaves them unprotected. Neglecting to get necessary protection: Many people insure against some important risks, but neglect others. For example, dont put off getting life insurance if you need it; most people who die young never expected to. If youre going without health insurance, medical costs could wipe you out. Its often wise to have disability insurance, too, lest you end up unable to work for a short or long while.If you rent your home, its smart to buy renters insurance to cover the value of your personal property. If you have home insurance, depending on where you live, you might want to add flood insurance and earthquake coverage, as well. An umbrella policy offers added protection from lawsuits. Dont short-change yourself on insurance. If a policy is pricey, its probably because you stand a good chance of filing a claim one day. Learn more at insurance and Rebalanced Away ProfitsMy dumbest investment was rebalancing my portfolio several times after my Netflix shares soared, without any supporting data to suggest that the stock would trend down. In fact, the reasons I purchased the stock remained consistent. I did this because of all the advice Ive seen about rebalancing that doesnt explain why and when to do it. My portfolio would be three or more times as valuable today had I not rebalanced without supporting data indicating it was a good time to take profits. A.J., onlineThe Fool Responds: There are different schools of thought on this topic. Some will tell you to let your winners run, but if you do so, you run the risk of a strong performer suddenly collapsing. (Netflix dropped 61 percent in 2011, when many investors thought its heyday was over.) A more conservative approach is to rebalance your portfolio whenever one or more holdings come to dominate it perhaps once they represent 10 percent to 20 percent or more of it, or if a class of assets (such as stocks or bonds) has grown or shrunk significantly in your portfolio. You dont need any data suggesting that a given stock will fall though if it has grown well beyond a reasonable valuation, it may well pull back at some point. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Netflix.) An Energetic InvestmentThe energy sector has been whacked by low prices for oil and natural gas, and thats presenting some buying opportunities. Consider, for example, Spectra Energy (NYSE: SE), a leading North American pipeline and midstream company. Its operations include more than 22,000 miles of pipelines for natural gas, natural gas liquids and crude oil; about 300 billion cubic feet of natural gas storage; 4.8 million barrels of crude oil storage; and natural gas gathering, processing and local distribution operations. Spectras stock price has fallen by more than a third over the past year, and that has sent its dividend yield up to a recent 6.5 percent. Some worry that the dividend might get cut, as earnings and free cash flow are depressed, but even slashing it in half would leave a significant yield, and the low-price environment isnt likely to last forever.Spectra sports a large and growing backlog of projects slated to come online through the end of the decade. Better still, much of its revenue comes from collecting fees for moving natural gas through its huge network of pipelines. That fee-based revenue is secured by long-term contracts, which allows for reliable revenue projections and greatly insulates the company from swings in commodity prices. Patient investors should take a closer look at Spectra. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Spectra Energy.) You used to know me as Google, but now I have a new name, so that I can encompass Google and many other businesses. Some of my offerings, such as Google Maps, YouTube, Chrome and Android, have more than a billion users. Founded in California in 1998, my search engine was initially called BackRub. I own the Waze and Songza apps, too, and I bought Nest, which makes smart thermostats and more. I employ more than 50,000 people, and my market value recently topped $500 billion. If you give up, my website is at Who am I? (Answer: Alphabet) The Rule of 72QWhats the Rule of 72? F.S., Shenandoah, IowaAIt helps you estimate how long it will take money to double at various rates of growth. Imagine your investment is earning 4 percent in interest annually. Divide 72 by 4, and youll get 18. That suggests it will take roughly 18 years to double your money. Earning 10 percent annually, youll double your money in about 7.2 years. The rule works well for growth rates up to about 10 percent and pretty well up to 25 percent. It works in reverse, too. If you want to double your moolah in six years, just divide 72 by six, and youll see that youll need an average growth rate of roughly 12 percent. Its even good for inflation. Wondering how long it will take prices to double if inflation is about 3 percent? Divide 72 by 3, and you get 24 years. ***QWhats a mock portfolio? M.R., Bremerton, WashingtonAIts a great way for new investors and others to practice investing. With a mock portfolio, you go through the motions of investing, stopping short of actually plunking down your hard-earned cash. Research companies that interest you, decide which ones youd buy, and then set up a pretend portfolio. You can do so on paper, but its more convenient online, at financial websites that offer portfolio tracking. (You can set up a watch list at, too.) Record details such as when you bought the shares and at what price. Then you can follow your performance over time and see if you beat the market. An online portfolio is also a good way to keep track of your watch list of promising stocks. Want more information about stocks?

If a particular man and I made it through the gauntlet of back-and-forth questionnaires to the stage where we exchanged phone numbers, it wasnt long before I started getting a Good morning on my phone at the start of the day and a Good night at the end. It surprised me, this quick jump to the things you would roll over and say to the person next to you. I found it unnervingly intimate from someone I barely knew. What were those men trying to do? Then I understood. They were trying to make me their person. Their person? you ask. The person we tell about our day. The person we reach out to when we see something funny or interesting. The person we call when were feeling sad or hurt. In order to make it through this rough and turbulent world with our sanities intact, we all need a person. For a long time, I thought relationships were simply about going through the motions. Some nice man takes me out to dinner a few times, maybe the movies, and somewhere along the line intimacy gets built. How, exactly? I wasnt sure. But it didnt seem to be working for me. As much as I might like some of these men, we never made it past the acquaintance level. Then one morning, standing in my kitchen with my phone in my hand, I realized what it was. I was laughing at something my ex-boyfriend had texted, a funny story about his week. I texted back a tidbit about my life, and we discussed that for a while. With an unsettling twist in my gut it occurred to me that he is my person. He has been my person for a long time, as long as I have been writing this column. Even though we havent officially been together for years, hes still the one I reach out to when Im angry or upset or elated. He helped me navigate the years of mourning that followed my husbands death, and he celebrated my books successes. We broke up because of a complicated mix of factors that revolved around distance and circumstance. Every time I try to start a new relationship with someone else, hes always there on my mind and on my phone. This Christmas, he was in Florida for two weeks. I hadnt seen him in a year. Ill come visit you, he promised. During his stay, we texted. We talked on the phone. But he never gave me a date when he would come here to see me. Finally, when I pushed him, he said he wasnt going to make it. That was the moment I got it, the thing I have been refusing to see for years: He is my person on the phone, yes, but he will never be my person in real life. And I want someone I can touch, not just someone I just text. If Im going to make space for that person, I know now that I will have to let him go. Someday.

PAGE 52 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 we had tons of people asking to come in advance. The preview begins Friday, Jan. 15, at the auction house in Palm Beach. The live auction starts at noon Saturday, Jan. 23. Among the 153 items going up for bid is the Louis XV-style mahogany banquet table where the clan shared family meals; a pair of twin beds shared between John F. Kennedy and his brother Joe Jr., who was eventually supplanted from the presidents bedside by Jacqueline Kennedy; a walnut Savonarola chair Roses father, John Francis Honey Fitz Fitzgerald, claimed during visits to his daughters family; a pair of upholstered armchairs where President-elect John F. Kennedy conducted interviews for his Cabinet; the iconic photograph of John and his family on their way to Easter Mass in Palm Beach; and many, many more tables, chairs, mirrors and decorative items the family used during its most prominent years on the American political stage. Kennedys aside, items with Mr. Mizners touch have their own merit thanks to the designers clout as the most prominent resort architect of the 1920s, particularly in South Florida. He designed and furnished what would become the Winter White House in 1923 for department store magnate Rodman Wanamaker III. Kennedy patriarch Joseph Sr. and his wife, Rose, acquired the house for their permanent residence a decade later for $120,000 with many of the original Mizner furnishings and retained ownership until 1995, when the family trust sold the property and its contents to John K. and Marianne Castle for about $5 million. (The property changed hands again in May 2015, when the Castles sold it for $31 million to Palm Beach socialite Jane Goldman. The couple retained ownership of homes contents, however.) When the Kennedy family bought the home from the Wanamakers, much of its original furnishings were in place, said Corbin Horn, furniture and decorative art specialist at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. While the Wanamakers had largely conformed to correct period taste to go with the Mediterranean revival style that was so fashionable at the time the home was built, he added, the Kennedys incorporated comfortable furniture in both traditional and modern tastes. The home was a retreat for the entire Kennedy clan where various members could recuperate, restore and play their famous touch-football games beachside. When John F. Kennedy Jr. was elected president, the home became a sort of off-site Oval Office and was renovated to improve security. It was here and using much of the items that are now up for auction that Mr. Kennedy executed many of his presidential duties, such as selecting his Cabinet, writing his inaugural address, conducting press conferences and hosting heads of state. The Kennedys Palm Beach home was where JFK left for war and it was where he recuperated from his wartime ordeals, wrote William Doyle, author of PT 109: An American Epic of War, Survival, and the Destiny of John F. Kennedy, in an email last week. As president, and until the end of his life, (he) often came to these rooms and loggias to enjoy family and spiritual life, and to relax and gain strength as he grappled with titanic issues we still struggle with today: race relations, nuclear dangers, space travel, tensions with Russia, poverty and injustice.What will it bring?Values in the catalog for the upcoming auction top out at around $5,000-$6,000, with the majority of household furniture and accessories hovering around the $500-$1,000 mark. Who knows what things will bring, Ms. Hindman said. Theyre all lovely objects and intrinsically nice pieces (but) the estimates are conservative, as if they didnt belong to the Kennedys, she added. The Los Angeles Times reported in 1996 that Sothebys landmark auction of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis personal effects brought in almost $35 million in four days, more than seven times its original estimate of $4.6 million. A triple-strand of faux pearls belonging to Jacqueline was valued at $700 in the Sothebys catalog but eventually sold for $211,500; a set of President Kennedys golf clubs, which was valued at $700$800, sold for $772,500. Ms. Hindman encourages people who are interested in the upcoming auction to call the Palm Beach auction house to ask questions, request catalogs and condition reports, or to just obtain basic information about how auctions work. A lot of people who are interested in memorabilia dont know how to bid and might be intimidated by auctions, she said. They should know they can call and ask questions. Well answer them. The auction preview begins at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 15, at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers West Palm Beach location, and will continue at specified times through Friday, Jan. 22. Bids can be placed in a variety of methods at the Jan. 23 auction: by telephone, Internet, by leaving a maximum bid with auctioneers or in person.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 FLORIDA WRITERSKing of hearts a calling card for murder in latest John Jordan story Blood Money by Michael Lister. Pulpwood Press. 280 pages. Hardcover, $26.99; trade paperback, $16.99.The eighth entry in the John Jordan Mystery series shows the incredibly talented and prolific author Michael Lister at the top of his form. No one gives us Panhandle Florida like Mr. Lister, and no one handles the prison microcosm with the degree of physical, social and moral authenticity that he is able to convey. In this installment, local politics rears its more than ugly heads, serial suicides (or homicides in disguise) flare up in the Potterville Correction Institution and a prostitute who had serviced a political event is found dead and then her corpse is stolen. Chaplain-investigator John Jordan, son of the police chief, is once again in the middle of several messes. The new warden wants to get rid of him and Jordan himself wonders if the ugliness of his job is overwhelming him. Not only that, but his lover Annas ex-husband is threatening her, and Jordans relationship with Anna is the most important and redeeming relationship in his life. That ugliness at the job includes that fact that a group of PCI inmates have dubbed themselves the Suicide Kings. Take a look: Is the king of hearts wielding a weapon toward himself? Or is he fending off or recovering from an attack? However you read the standard image of this card, its discovery as a signature to several deaths in the prison, slipped into each victim/practitioners pocket, is eerie and shudder producing. In an environment where boredom is in itself deadly, incarcerated men need something to do with their dreams of power and their dreams of ending it all. Mostly, the members of the Suicide Kings manage a series of failed attempts. They have created a situation in which those inside the club or knowledgeable about it can commit a murder and stage it as a suicide. Youll marvel at how the author plays out the hand he has dealt to himself in this morbid but magnetic plot line. Part of the Suicide Kings pact is to buy insurance on each others lives; this adds fascinating dimensions to the investigation and a special overtone to the books title. Indeed, the novel is a trove of facts about suicide in general and its epidemic growth in the prison community. Fortunately, Mr. Lister doesnt break stride as he slides in this astounding information, which is central to the action and themes. We learn, for example, that failed suicides are sometimes failure of will, but often planned as ways of improving the inmates benefits: more time out of his cell, more counseling and medication, etc. Back at PCI, healthcare professionals at the prison are experimenting with hypnotherapy to deal with the inmates various problems. Because of this, they fall under suspicion. Perhaps they are hypnotizing susceptible men into self-murder or just plain murder. But to what advantage? Blood Money is drenched with both blunt and sophisticated awareness of lifes fragility. This awareness, of course, grows largely out of the proximity to danger and death in the prison environment (there are, after all, murderers in there). In addition, the threats by Annas exhusband loom large. But most important is the death of Jordans mother from the slow suicide of alcoholism, cirrhosis eating away at her body her pickled brain and nervous system failing, shutting down. Jordan, the flawed man always aspiring to be a good man, is brought up short when his mothers expected death occurs. He thought he was ready for that day, but he really wasnt. The authors handling of his protagonists attempts to be close to his mother at the end of her long decline is heart-wrenching. In situations like this, every decision we make about how we spend our time comforting a dying parent, getting our work done, fulfilling our needs for romantic intimacy becomes pressured. There is a constant conflict of values. It is in the depth of his characterizations that Mr. Lister reveals the magnitude of his broad, finely tuned sensibilities. While he works a special niche in this series, he never fails to reach out meaningfully and powerfully to universals. While the revelations that come late in the novel about who has done what and why are at once surprising and convincing, what we are offered along the away about our shared human condition brings us the greater rewards of engaging with Michael Listers art.

ARTS COMMENTARY The Cocktail Hour charms and entertains at Florida RepIt was Flannery OConnor who famously said, Anyone who survived childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days. Thats certainly true for playwright A.R. Gurney, whos made a successful career out of writing about WASPs and familial conflict, as society changes and the younger generation questions its elders and their ways. Its the world in which he grew up, in Buffalo, N.Y., in the 1930s and 40s. And its true for the main character, John (Brendan Powers), in Florida Repertory Theatres production of Mr. Gurneys 1988 award-winning The Cocktail Hour. Like Mr. Gurney, Johns childhood and upbringing have given him ample literary fodder for his own work. John has returned home to visit his family. Hes written a highly autobiographical play and is looking for their permission to move ahead and try to get it produced. But his parents decline. I just try to show who we are, he says. His father, Bradley (Peter Thomasson), wont even read the play, but refuses to give his blessing, feeling it will just ridicule and humiliate them. His mother, Ann (Carrie Lund), keeps urging John to write a book instead. Books are quieter, she says, claiming that plays are too noisy and vulgar. Theyre both overly concerned what others might think and how their sons play might reflect on them. Politeness and social manners rule this familys interactions, but underneath all the niceties, strong emotions churn. They might be a calm and placid lake on the surface, but underneath the waters are roiling. Johns sister, Nina (Kate Hampton), comes by for dinner, but the meal is delayed and so the cocktail hour lasts longer than 60 minutes. As the drinks flow, passionate emotions start pushing past the polite veneers that tamped them down. John feels hes been overlooked all his life and wonders why hes the odd man out in the family. Nina feels taken for granted. Shes the one whos stayed close to home, taking care of her parents, even though she also has a family of her own. What she really wants to do is move to Cleveland and learn how to train seeing-eye dogs, a desire that horrifies both her parents. A third sibling, a brother, obviously the favored one, is spoken of, but does not make an appearance. This cast makes a believable family. Ms. Lund and Mr. Thomasson have played husband-and-wife in at least two other Florida Rep productions of plays by Mr. Gurney (Black Tie and Indian Blood). Like many long-married couples, they have an easy way about them and, in one scene, while talking about another couple, they complete each others sentences as they comment on how the other couple does the same thing. Mr. Thomassons Bradley is somehow charming while being irritating; he quotes various people from Byron to Emerson, but refuses to let his son look anything up because he doesnt want to be proven wrong. Desperately holding onto the old ways and rituals, he considers the cocktail hour sacred. Any problem, he believes, can be solved by throwing money at it. Its Mr. Thomassons great skill that makes us like his character, though were laughing at him. Ms. Lund is equally as gifted. Shes the queen of the dry delivery, and just her certain intonation of a word or phrase can make an audience laugh uproariously. (In fact, this became a problem on opening night, as some subsequent lines would be lost in the continued laughter.) Her Ann wears her privilege like a tiara. She had me in stitches with the way she airily waves her right hand and requests, Just a splash, her charm bracelet tinkling almost as if shes ringing a little bell to summon a maid. Mr. Powers has the unenviable role of playing the straight man, though as the evening wears on, he becomes increasingly and amusingly unhinged. He and Ms. Hampton also have a lovely scene at the top of Act II, where they sit on the couch together, two siblings laughing and reminiscing about their childhood. And Ms. Hamptons character, initially placid and conventional, proves to have some grit to her. Everyone has beans to spill, says the elegant Ann in the beginning of the play. As the action progresses, we discover exactly what those beans are. The Cocktail Hour is a very clever play; the play we are seeing, in fact, is the play that John has written, which has the very same name. It grows increasingly self-referential, as John declares that he and his mother must have the obligatory mother-and-son scene and that, though there may not be much in terms of a plot, the play needs a kicker with which to end. Set designer Ray Recht provides the family a spacious living room, tastefully designed with elegant understatement. There are four tall white columns, wainscoting, subdued tan and mint colors. The ceilings so tall, the grandfather clock in the corner is dwarfed and easy to overlook. A master of details, Mr. Recht has placed some hunting scenes on the far back wall of the staircase leading upstairs. And the pice de rsistance a painting of a clipper ship stage left, above the white fireplace. Clipper ships are discussed briefly by John and his father (one is even on the label of the Cutty Sark on the bar), a sailing vessel that briefly enjoyed its time of glory but is long gone, much like Bradleys cherished WASP way of life. There are oceans of space between the furniture, echoing the wide divide among all the characters. Director Chris Clavelli does some clever staging, with actors speaking to each other across a wide room, coming together and regrouping in different configurations. At times, John sits alone in front of the fireplace, as if stranded on his own island. At another point, he sits on the floor next to the sofa where his parents are comfortably ensconced, taking a childlike position, subservient to them. The laughs come easy in this production, which possesses both lightness and substance. This gifted cast knows exactly how to deliver the playwrights lines and inhabit his characters. The Cocktail Hour is one of those magical productions where a talented cast and an intuitive director combine with a smart script to provide an entertaining night at the theater. I left with a lightness in my heart and a big smile on my face. NICK ADAMS / FLORIDA REPERTORY THEATREPeter Thomasson, Carrie Lund and Brendan Powers in "The Cocktail Hour" by A.R. Gurney.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A colleague could be more supporting of one of your efforts. But its up to you to make the case for it, and that could mean opening up a secret or two, which might be a problem for you. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Expect some good news about a relative youve been worried about. But dont expect the full story to be told -at least not yet. A workplace matter might face shifting priorities. BORN THIS WEEK: You see the wisdom in honesty, and you help others appreciate your vision. PUZZLES

This deal, for example, took place in the match between Great Britain and the United States in 1955 and demonstrates how far from par the experts can stray, even in a world championship. When the British were North-South, the bidding went as shown. Kenneth Konstam bid one diamond, and Boris Schapiro jump-shifted to two hearts. Schapiro was trying for a slam, of course, and Konstam went along with the idea by leaping to four diamonds to show a respectable opening bid containing a self-sufficient suit. It is not known whether Schapiros four-notrump bid was intended as Blackwood. However Konstam interpreted four notrump, his raise to six indicates he did not treat the bid as asking for aces. Konstam might have felt that a fivediamond response, showing one ace, would not do his hand justice, considering the number of winning tricks he had. At any rate, six notrump became the contract, whereupon the American East cashed the A-K of hearts to defeat the slam. At the other table, the American pair of William Rosen and Milton Ellenby arrived at the same contract! Rosen opened the South hand with three notrump ("gambling"), showing a long solid minor with not much else on the side, and Ellenby raised him to six. Ellenby was hoping there would either be a legitimate play for the slam or that the defense would make the wrong opening lead. The latter wish was granted when the English West led the jack of spades, and Rosen made all 13 tricks. So the American team gained 1,070 points on the deal. Both teams missed the ice-cold six-diamond contract.

The cinematography is fantastic and Mr. DiCaprio and Mr. Hardy give standout performances, but theres a harsh unpleasantness about it that makes you feel like you need a shower when its over. Rated R.The Hateful Eight 1/2(Kurt Russell, Samuel L. 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 (Chandler), finds herself attracted to a department store clerk (Ms. Mara) whos unsure of what she wants. The performances, costume and production design, 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. The performances, humor and spoton script make this an absolute treat; it should be a Best Picture Oscar nominee. Rated R.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 the co-stars 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.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 C15 PromenadeSpecials.com26795-26851 South Bay Drive, Bonita Springs, FL 34134discounts up to 50% off retail pricing LATEST FILMSCarol1/2Is it worth $10? YesThe way modern pop culture remembers 1950s America as a time of prude women, gallivanting men and cultural norms that belied the naughtiness lying behind closed doors it was clearly a time of intolerance and exclusion. Things had to be a certain orderly way, and if they werent ostracism was the consequence. It is in this backdrop that writer/ director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven) sets Carol, a moving love story thats wonderfully acted by Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Ms. Blanchett plays Carol, a loving mother to Rindy (Sadie Heim) but bored housewife to Harge (Kyle Chandler), who shes looking forward to divorcing. Its Christmas season, so Carol ventures into New York City from her spacious New Jersey home to do some shopping. While in a department store she meets Therese (Ms. Mara), a shy, waifish clerk and aspiring photographer. Thereses boyfriend, Richard (Jake Lacy), wants to take her to Europe and marry her, yet she hesitates. Something is not quite right. As she spends time with Carol, she figures out what. Mr. Haynes story is in no rush to get Carol and Therese physically involved, although Carols years-ago fling with her now best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) clearly suggests what Carol desires. Instead of rushing it, Mr. Haynes and screenwriter Phyllis Nagy have Carol and Therese spend time together. Bond. A simple caress of the shoulder here, a touch on the hand there, and intimacy is established. Eye contact lasts longer than normal, glances turn to glares that would be awkward if they werent so wanted. Soon a deep emotional connection is established without them so much as kissing. The little things tell us everything. The first time we see Carol and Therese together, in the prologue before a flashback tells us how they met, theres an abrupt ending to their meeting. But note how Carol touches Therese on the shoulder as Carol leaves, and Therese closes her eyes and seemingly melts into Carols soft hand. All we need to know is suggested in this otherwise passive moment, and the phenomenal performances from Ms. Mara and Ms. Blanchett allow it all to feel pure. The emotions become more painfully prominent with Carter Burwells musical score, which stays with you. Its notable for how it punctuates otherwise mundane moments to heighten emotions, simultaneously suggesting melancholy and turmoil throughout. It also makes you feel the yearning Carol and Therese have for one another. Its one of the best scores of 2015. The camera work is straightforward, but the costumes and production design are authentic, from the staid, modest attire to the street signs, cars and furniture. Take note of what the women wear: Carol is often seen in lighter colors and sports flowing blonde locks, suggesting a look at me extroversion and comfort in a world that doesnt accept her for what she is and wants. In contrast, Therese wears darker, less flattering clothes, visually bleeding into the background and reflecting her reserved nature by giving the impression that shes completely in the dark about who and what she is. The film is based on the Patricia Highsmith novel The Price of Salt, which she wrote under a pseudonym in 1952 because of its taboo content. Through the eyes of Mr. Haynes, the story transforms into a stellar motion picture that tells its tale more through actions and mannerisms than it does through dialog. Carol is a patient, poetic and beautiful work thats not to be missed. T t b a h d h dan >> Novelist Patricia Highsmith renamed the story (originally called The Price of Salt) Carol when it was republished in 1990. AESTHETICPLASTICSURGERY& MED SPAOF NAPLES

Watch out for endangered species discussions and laws. Are we protecting living elephants by making it illegal to sell any ivory, even carvings or teapot handles, made more than 100 years ago? Watch out for stereotypes. Is it trying to change history to delete vocabulary and cartoonish figurines from 100 years ago? Unflattering depictions of suffragettes or Shylock are tolerated, but a Confederate flag, a Chinese man with a queue or a black child with an alligator or non-PC word embossed on a bank must be omitted in a for sale ad. And which firearms can be legally sold at antiques auctions without special permits? Is a cannon OK? Recently, a life-size iron figure of a woman wearing a painted late-19thcentury carnival costume was sold at auction. She is a shooting-gallery target, part of the history of a past lifestyle. She sold for more than $43,000, even though she had marks from shots and some repairs. Times have changed no shooting gallery would have a human target, but one from the past is an historic artifact. Q: I have two lions from Bennington Vermont ceramics from the year 1849. I'd like to sell them. One of them was damaged, but I can get it fixed and restored. Is it worth it? A: A lot of fake Bennington has been made. The lions should be seen by an expert to determine if they are the original old Bennington or more recent reproductions. Contact a good auction house or antiques shop. Prices for Bennington have dropped in the past five years. It might pay to fix the damaged lion so you can sell them as a pair. A pair is worth more than two singles. Q: I found a Speedball Linoleum Cutter made by Hunt Manufacturing Co. It's in its original box. The blades are in their own little box. It says there are supposed to be five blades, but there are nine. What can you tell me about it, and how much is it worth? A: The company began when C. Howard Hunt started a pen manufacturing company in Camden, New Jersey, in 1899. The company became wellknown when it introduced the Speedball nib, which made lettering faster, in 1913. It began making linoleum cutters and other accessories for block printing in 1936. The company name was changed to Hunt Manufacturing Co. in 1962. It was restructured in 1997 and now makes linoleum cutters and other art products under the name Speedball in Statesville, N.C. New and used linoleum cutters sell online for under $10. Q: I have a bunch of old movie posters that were used outside of theaters. They include Singing in the Rain, Hunt for Red October and several others. Are they worth anything? How would I sell them? A: Movie posters are easy to sell. Some sell for about $25 and many sell for several hundred dollars or more. Contact auction houses or dealers who sell movie memorabilia may want to sell them for you. Q: I have a brass plaque embossed with the dates 801 and 915 above a temple, the words To commemorate the dedication of the House of the Temple Supreme Council A. and A.S.R. of Free Masonry for the Southern Jurisdiction U.S.A., Oct. 18, 1915, and portraits of four men. An eagle and other symbols are also embossed on it. The back of the plaque is embossed with the names of the officers of the Supreme Council. We would like to know the approximate value and any history behind it. A: The initials A. and A.S.R. stand for Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, a Masonic organization founded in 1801. The House of the Temple, the headquarters of the Supreme Council, is located in Washington, DC, and was dedicated in 1915. Your bronze plaque probably was made in quantity so that members could purchase them when the building was dedicated. Information on the actual number made may be available at the headquarters or at the Grand Lodge Scottish Rite Museum in Minneapolis. We haven't seen a commemorative plaque like yours sell. It doesn't have wide appeal, but it does have historic value for Masons or people who are interested in the building. Bronze plaque prices are determined by size and the fame of the artist. Most sell for $30 to $100. Q: My sister and I have been going through the contents of our parents house trying to determine whether to donate, sell, or give away things. There are a number of linens from the 1940s and s, antique lace from the early 1900s, a silk nightgown from the 1940s, and baby clothes from the late 1950s to early 1960s. We feel these arent items for a garage sale, but wonder if you can tell us how to find someone who purchase these types of items. A: Old linens are hard to sell. Look for dealers or shops in your area who specialize in vintage clothes and textiles, but dont expect to get much for them. Usable vintage clothing, like the nightgown or baby clothes, can bring $5-$100 in a shop and much less in a garage sale. Tip: A drawer that is stuck can be helped by heat. Remove any nearby drawers, then aim a blow dryer set on medium at the wood. Once the drawer is opened, rub the runners with paraffin or a candle.

Remember A Christmas Story? All Ralphie wanted was a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time essentially a sundial. For me, Christmas 1972 was a magic year in which I received a Lionel O-gauge locomotive. The joke was that my Grandpa Simmons eyes were bigger than his belly because he had it mounted on a 4-by-8 plywood base that took up the bulk of virtually any room in which it was installed. My parents followed it up the next year with an HO-gauge steam engine that my dad proceeded to mount on an equally large board so much for downsizing! I still have both trains, and the Lionel occasionally chugs its way around the Christmas tree. My mom still has the Madame Alexander bride doll she received for Christmas in 1948. That doll, along with the Nancy Ann Storybook dolls she collected as a child, form the basis of a collection that stands among the finest. She and her pals from the Naples Doll Club gather Jan. 15-16 for their annual doll show, which brings together some of the nations top dealers, and Feb. 13 for the Magic of Dolls show and sale in Fort Myers.

WELCOME ABOARD! CELEBRITY EXTRAJoan Allen plays matriarch with star-studded cast BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Can you tell me what Joan Allen has been up to lately? She is a great actress and one classy lady. Paul T., via emailA: The wonderful and talented Ms. Allen can next be seen in the new ABC series The Family. It is a dramatic political thriller that centers on a family (headed by matriarch Claire Warren, played by Joan) that is shaken to the core when the presumed dead son, Adam, suddenly returns. After disappearing a decade earlier, Adams homecoming to Red Pines, Maine, is initially met with astonishment and joy, but suspicions soon begin to emerge. Is he really who he says he is? The boys shocking reappearance forces the entire family to reexamine who they are, unearthing longburied secrets, betrayals and heartache. Leading a stellar ensemble cast Rupert Graves, Andrew McCarthy, Zach Gilford, Madeleine Arthur, Margot Bingham, Alison Pill, Rarmian Newton and Liam James Oscar-nominee Joan Allen brings to life Claire Warren, who not only has survived the heartbreaking loss of her son, but has used her resiliency and surrounding adversity in the aftermath of this tragedy to fuel her own political aspirations and rise to power. The Family debuts with a special premiere at 9 p.m. Thursday, March 3, with a second, all-new episode 9 p.m. Sunday, March 6, where it will take over its regular day and time slot. Q: I was so happy to read in your column that Longmire had a fourth season on Netflix and has been renewed for a fifth. However, I dont have a computer and have no way to watch new episodes. Will they be out on DVD anytime soon? Vickie H., Danville, VirginiaA: While Netflix has not announced a release date for season four of the cult-hit Western, I would hope that it eventually will be released on DVD. Netflix original series like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black found their way to DVD, so I am thinking that Longmire will too, especially when you consider what a following it has. As soon as I hear something, Ill let everyone know. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803; or email her at DAMICO Joan Allen

SPECIAL WEEKLY TRIAL PROGRAMGive us a Try!No Commitment 5 Meals Delivered on Monday or Thursday For $60.00Meal Plan Options Also Available & Jewish Deli Fest promises everything just like Grandma used to make BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comAh, the smell of hot pastrami in the afternoon! Those who suffer over the dearth of New York-style delis in the area, fret not. The Jewish Congregation of Marco Island is ramping up its third annual Jewish Deli Fest to serve matzo balland rugalachstarved locals the nourishment theyve been lacking from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24. To be quite frank, this is based on people telling us especially those from East coast that they sure miss New York deli food, event chair Estie Karpman said. The inaugural fest three years ago quickly ran out of food, with organizers prepared for only about 500 guests. For this years anticipated crowd of more than 2,000, ordering has been streamlined into separate lines for those who want to grab a to-go box and those who want to eat right there. All of the soups, pastries and other specialties are made onsite and preparation has already commenced, in many cases using recipes that go back to the 19th century. The strudel is a 130-year-old recipe, Ms. Karpman said. (The recipes) have been handed down from generation to generation. It's not like commercial food. It's homemade. It's just like grandma used to make. Among the delicacies on offer are corned beef and pastrami sandwiches (with meat sourced from New York), chicken and matzo ball soup, beef and barley soup, rugalach, strudel, babka, loaf cakes, cookies and cheesecakes. Lunch for $12 includes a sandwich, coleslaw, pickles and chips. Pastries are priced from $1-$30 and are sold in single servings, by the half-dozen, dozen or as a whole. For more information, call JCMI at 6490800 or visit Take note: Luckys Market, a Boulder, Co.-based grocery store focused on organic and locally sourced products, opened its second Florida location this week in East Naples. A tasting fair takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, at the store at 3815 Tamiami Trail E.

Once the holiday hullabaloo settled down, our kids became murderously bored before school started up again, so we packed ourselves into the car to exchange a few misguided video games and hopefully keep them amused during the home stretch. Cant start a mall excursion on an empty stomach, however, so we stopped at The Crust for some familyfriendly fare. I ordered the Palermo pie, which featured a crispy thin crust loaded with caramelized onions, fresh garlic, gorgonzola, parmesan, provolone and mozzarella. Im ashamed to say I ate the whole thing. One More Thing: Anybody else on the hunt for Mexican Coke? Pop aficionados keep an eye out for it because it still contains real cane sugar, rather than the high-fructose corn syrup brew sold stateside. The Crust sells it for a very fair $2. Lindsey Nesmith
