Foreclosed homes dot the landscape. An alarming number of businesses and stores sit dark and shuttered. Automobile dealerships resemble gridlocked freeways, with unsold inventories sprawled across vast acreage. And it is a rare person indeed who doesnt know someone facing bankruptcy or worse. But these are just the external signs of the recession, the unwelcome reminders of what we are up against and what lies ahead. Less apparent, but equally devastating SSEE ANXIETY, A8 Places to turn if you are stressed. A8>>inside:on an altogether different level, is the toll the failing economy exacts in the form of unremitting psychological stress that often leads to or aggravates substance abuse and a variety of mental disorders. While these consequences are not always apparent to the public at large, they are all too familiar to the mental health professionals who deal with the emotional devastation wrought by this financial meltdown. Stress exacerbates all kinds of illnesses, says Kevin Lewis, CEO of Southwest Florida Addiction Services (SWFAS) in Fort Myers.

Your 2009 Florida Weekly/NBC-2 Hurricane Guide. INSIDEPATHS OF HURICANES PAST HURRICANEGUIDE FREE MAY 2009You dont like it, do you Rocco, the storm? asks Frank McCloud, trapped in a run-down hotel with mobsters as a hurricane crashes over them in John Hustons 1948 film, Key Largo. Show it your gun, why dont you? If it doesnt stop, shoot it. Humphrey Bogarts McCloud and Edward G. Robinsons wiseguy Rocco might have befriended each other and lived happily ever after if theyd only been armed with a copy of the Florida Weekly NBC2 Hurricane Guide. As the six-month storm season looms, we give you not just both barrels of the anti-hurricane gun, but all barrels, including: What should you realistically expect your insurance company to do for you? What walk-in clinics, gas stations, hospitals, grocery stores and home fix-up stores are likely to be open before, during or right after a hurricane? What essentials do you need to have on hand for emergency provisions? What shelters will accept you and your pets? Whats the best road out of here, and how far do you have to travel to reach safety? What are the best foods (and wines, why not?) for a fine culinary experience laid on without electricity? And thats not the half of it. Sooner or later if you live here, youll find yourself backed up against a hurricane.KNOW IF YOURE COVERED 5 8 10 6 & 918 22 21PREPARE YOUR CRITTERS WHERE TO GO NBC2S FIRST ALERT STORM TEAM MUST HAVES RECIPES AND TIPS STORES WITH GENERATORSinsurance food petssheltersexpertstoolspower SEE GUIDE, 4
