French III architecture lecture series begins Oct. 9The American Institute of Architects FlaSW Chapter announces its 2009 Alfred W. French III Lectures in Architecture series. Nationally and internationally prominent architects and their work will be featured on three evenings this fall at the International Design Center in Estero. A popular program hosted by the local AIA for more than 25 years, the series was renamed in honor of Naples architect Alfred French after his death in 2004. Naples architect Andrea Clark Brown cochaired the series with Mr. French for several years and has continued as chair. Fort Myers-based architect Joyce Owens, president-elect of AIA FlaSW, remembers attending the fall lectures as a young architect in the late 1980s, before she moved to London to establish a practice. Those early lectures, Ms. Owens says, helped her understand the importance of looking outside the community in order to make it a better place. That was something Mr. French always stressed, she says, adding the programs are of value not only for architects (who can earn one LU per lecture), but for anyone who is interested in the built environment. Each program begins with a reception at 6 p.m. followed by the lecture at 7 p.m. Distinguished guest architects for 2009 are: Friday, Oct. 9: Paul S. Alter, AIA, principal of Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership, New York, N.Y. Mr. Alter will discuss his firms interdisciplinary approach to Design as Interpretation. He describes the design process as an immersive and collaborative process by which he and his colleagues mine the underlying story and essential content of each project. LHSA+DP is comprised of architects, interior designers, museum educators, exhibition designers, industrial designers, graphic designers andSEE AIA, A19 VEN THE MOST DETERMINED LEADERS IN THE violent American war against breast cancer sometimes fail to take their own advice, becoming inadvertent hypocrites and potential victims. That could be a fatal mistake, as they are the first to admit. On the front lines of the fight, where Florida Weekly travels in this issue, the real color is not pink but blood-red and mortal, and the most deadly foes are not the various configurations of breast cancer but ignorance and its ally, simple forgetfulness.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 Somewhere around here, probably within 25 miles of the shop where this pink paper was put together, a 37-yearold woman with a swollen breast, three children and a recent divorce has just learned shes going to die. She holds a steady job one she never complained about when the boss stopped providing health insurance, because she couldnt afford to be out of work. Breast cancer. She waited too long to see a doctor, in this case Dr. Mary Kay Peterson at Radiology Regional Center, who told me this story last week shortly after the woman finally came in for help. And now she cant be saved. The woman probably ignored her swelling breast because she assumed she couldnt afford a doctor or a mammogram without insurance. (This assumption turns out to be untrue, Im told by Dr. Peterson and Miriam Ross, executive director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the five counties of Southwest Florida.) As a newly single mother, she likely decided to fall back on a grab bag of celebrated virtues to get her through the problem: courage, stoicism, endurance, a willingness to sacrifice herself, and determination. All applied in the hope that she could outlast the growing discomfort until it resolved itself. Why? Because she loves her children, and perhaps shes proud. Nevertheless, her decision to wait proved wrong. It alters history hers, her childrens, Dr. Petersons. Yours and mine, since now youre reading this and I wrote it. Now, all of us are part of it. The question is, what are we going to do about it? I had been about to claim that Dr. Peterson isnt afraid to look the truth in the eye. When I bluntly asked her what the outcome for this patient would be, she paused. And then she bluntly told me. The good doctor wields both heartfelt compassion and cool-headed medical skill at the same time, which is her reputation across the board. Thats no easy trick when you care deeply about somebody you cant save. And as youll see if you read the main story in this issue, Dr. Peterson is not afraid of telling it like it is. But for me to claim that she isnt afraid to look the truth in the eye would be selling the truth short. This young woman is going to die, and her children will have to grow up and grow old without their mother. Thats the fact. No one can alter it, and Dr. Peterson isnt going to be bullied into happy-speak by it. But the truth is something larger. The truth lies, somehow, in the answer to the question I posed above: What are we going to do about it? The truth of this womans life, and in part the lives of her heartbroken children, will be defined ultimately by all of us who live here in the world, and here in Southwest Florida, with her. By knowing about suffering, about tragedy, about need or despair, we become part of its history, whether we asked for that privilege or not. Thats a principle a law, if you will that works in any culture and in any time. Let me call it The Draft (a heart draft rather than a military draft) and point out that you and I have now been drafted. Some people ignore The Draft, and some dont. Those who dont, populate the pages of this issue. They have courage and compassion in abundance. They have intelligence and determination. Some are believers, some arent. Some are survivors, and some havent had to be. Some are romantics, some are pragmatists, some are relatives and some are strangers. Because of such people, here and now or in any generation, we manage to hold to the center, to have community and communion. We manage to get by. And we hope to give our children enough love to live on. That mothers children, by the way, are now ours, by order of The Draft. I wont presume to tell you what to do about the young mother Dr. Peterson described, or people like her I dont know what Im going to do myself, yet. Instead, let me tell you one true story about The Draft. Cynthia Mott (page A14) did not burn her proverbial draft card when her friend Cynthia Snuffin was diagnosed with breast cancer. She stood by her. In the last days of Ms. Snuffins life, she clung fiercely to her religious faith and refused to give up the hope that she would be saved in this world, Ms. Mott told me. Her pastor and his wife encouraged that view and told her in a final hospital visit that they believed she would live. Ms. Snuffin refused to entertain any other discussion or scenario, certainly not hospice care and she also refused a private offer of illegal pain medication that might have alleviated nausea and mouth sores, among other problems. She told this guy NO to pot because her testimony was more important than physical relief, Ms. Mott recalled. I begged her to let him try to help her if not for herself, then for the rest of us who were watching her suffer but she refused. Im not saying she was right, wrong, heroic or otherwise, just that she was true to herself and her values all the way through. And she was proud of it, and were proud of her for it. And maybe thats something others can do, too a measure of selfdefined dignity in the midst of the most undignified circumstances be true to yourself. Maybe the courage and faith it takes to do that to be true to yourself, like Cynthia Snuffin, or true to your friends and neighbors, like Cynthia Mott provides the gift embedded in the trauma and tragedy. Cynthia Snuffin was not given to live. But she was given love. So was Cynthia Mott. I hope that much, at least for the young mother who found Dr. Peterson too late, and whose time is now short, and for her three children.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 The Shelter for Abused Women & Children commends Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, Capt. Chris Roberts and all the staff at the Collier County Sheriffs Office, as well as law enforcement officials from Haiti and across the United States, for the swift extradition of Mesac Damas to Collier County for the brutal slayings of his wife and five children. Sheriff Rambosk has called the multiple-murder the most horrific and violent event this community has ever experienced. While we may not know the specifics as to why Mr. Damas killed his family, an act he admitted to during a recent interview, we do know this for certain: Guerline, Michzach, Marven, Maven, Megan and Morgan Damas are all victims of domestic violence homicide. Each year in the United States, more than 40 million women, 2.1 million elders and 1 million men are abused, and up to 10 million children witness this violence. In Florida, during 2008, as reported by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, 180 individuals were murdered in domestic-violence related homicides, killed by a current or former partner or spouse. Closer to home, the statistics are just as alarming: Collier County witnessed six domestic violence-related murders in 2007. Its easier to think that domestic violence homicides happen somewhere else, to someone else, but the reality is that domestic abuse, family violence, touches each and every one of us whether we recognize it or not. As we continue to mourn with Guerlines family, friends, coworkers and the community, we pause to thank those who continue to work diligently to ensure that justice prevails.During this challenging time, The Shelter extends an invitation for the community to join a Candle Light Vigil honoring the memories of Guerline and her children starting at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, on the Collier County Courthouse Steps. This year, our National Domestic Violence Awareness Month Candle Light Vigil takes on more significance as we will pause to reflect on the lives and memories of Guerline, Michzach, Marven, Maven, Megan and Morgan, as well as all victims and survivors of domestic violence, including their family, friends and loved ones. Oct. 1 marks the first day of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. First observed in October 1987, it is an outgrowth of the first Day of Unity hosted by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence in October 1981. Victims of domestic violence in immediate danger should call 911. For more information on family violence and to speak with an expert, please call The Shelters confidential 24-hour crisis line at 775.1101. For more information on The Shelters programs and services, or how to help a friend, please visit www.naplesshelter. org or call 775-3862. Together, we can create a legacy for Guerline Damas and her children by continuing community-wide efforts to raise awareness about domestic violence, spousal abuse, dating violence, elder abuse and related animal cruelty. We must hold batterers accountable, demand justice for all victims of domestic abuse and become part of the solution to end family violence so that every home is a safe haven for the family that it shelters.

OPINION If diplomatic pusillanimity was the aim, President Barack Obamas decision to abandon our current missile-defense plans in Eastern Europe must be regarded as a masterstroke. With just one announcement, the Obama administration undercut two loyal allies, rewarded Russian bullying and diminished our ability to counter an emerging Iranian threat. If there were awards for self-defeating weakness, this move would deserve a Neville for Appeasement in a Perpetually Threatened Region. In an April speech in Prague, Obama hailed the courageous Poles and Czechs for agreeing to host 10 missile interceptors and a radar site, respectively. When the Czechs signed the initial deal for the radar installation last July, a suspiciously timed technical difficulty reduced Russian gas exports to Prague by half. Last November, Russia moved missiles to Kaliningrad, bordering Poland. Now, Polish and Czech courage gets its perverse reward. Perhaps hardheadedness says an attachment to the pro-U.S, democratic Poles and the Czechs shouldnt outweigh our interest in placating Russia. But this is realpolitik without the real. Theres no indication that Obama struck a secret deal with Moscow for anything meaningful. He appears to be acting out of the kindness of his heart a week after Russia said it wouldnt support tough sanctions against Iran or a timetable for progress on checking Irans nuclear program. They say nyet, we say da lets call the whole thing off. As a political figure, Obama is famously aloof, cool, detached. In international diplomacy, theres a cringing desperation to him. Were open to bilateral talks with the North Koreans (within the so-called six-party framework), even though their M.O. of serially selling the same notional concessions is long established; were going to sit down with the Iranians, even though theyve indicated that their nuclear program cant be the focus; were giving in to the Russians on missile defense, even though they are stiffing us on Iran. When the primary tools in your arsenal are talk and soothing gestures, everything looks like an occasion for a negotiation or concession. This misunderstands the Russians (and most of the rest of the world). Increasingly aggressive and authoritarian, Moscow wasnt belligerent because we planned to install missile-defense interceptors; it objected to the interceptors because it is belligerent. As Winston Churchill said in a different context: Disarmament has nothing to do with peace. When you have peace, you will have disarmament. Obama is selling his move as a robust commitment to missile defense, only in a more effective form focused on defense against Irans shortand medium-range missiles. Obama said the new arrangement will provide a stronger, smarter and swifter defense. Just like his health-care plan is all about choice and competition. In July, a group of pro-Western intellectuals and political leaders from Central and Eastern Europe wrote Obama an open letter pleading with the U.S. not to abandon them in a misbegotten romance of a revanchist Russia. They said missile defense had become a symbol of Americas credibility and commitment to the region. Obama has now given his answer return to sender.

Yosemites natural beauty the 2,425foot-high Yosemite Falls, and granite rock formations Half Dome and El Capitan is immortalized in the blackand-white landscape photographs of Ansel Adams (1902-1984).

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 BY PAMELA V. KROL ____________________pkrol@ oridaweekly.comto accomplish their expanded goals they will need additional volunteer teachers. Were hoping to have a total of six, he says. In order to pay for the trip and the teaching supplies needed, he plans to hold fulland half-day basketball camps in Naples early next summer some for kids who are serious about basketball, and some for kids who simply enjoy playing the game. Basketball is a great thing for kids here, too, he says. It builds relationships and character, and its just a lot of fun. Mr. Jobe attended Western State University in Colorado and played Division 2 basketball himself. Ive always loved the game, and now that Im a teacher, Im glad I can use it as a way to mentor kids in Naples and in Africa. Kids everywhere learn better when its fun. 15 MINUTES ing materials. Shipping things to Kenya is extremely expensive, so we each brought two huge suitcases filled with teaching supplies, he says, adding Seacrest students donated hundreds of pencils for him to take this past summer. Donating his time to help others is something Mr. Jobe has done since he was a kid growing up in Colorado. Each year on our half birthdays my two sisters and I would donate time to a charity in our community sometimes for a day, sometimes for a week or a month. It was just a natural part of growing up for us. He says his sisters havent joined his efforts in Africa yet because they both have young families. When their kids get a little older, they would both like to come and help, he says. After last summers trip, Mr. Jobe and Mr. de la Centas formed the nonprofit Basketball Beyond Boundaries and have decided to return to Africa next summer with an expanded program that includes more academics, arts and crafts and additional sports, such as soccer. The program has done so much good that we really want to continue. We know that people there are counting on us, Mr. Jobe says, adding that in order When is a basketball more than a basketball? When its a tool to help improve the life of a child. Just ask Ryan Jobe, the co-founder of Basketball Beyond Boundaries, a nonprofit organization devoted to teaching math, English and HIV/AIDS education to at-risk children in Kenya and Tanzania.Mr. Jobe has seen firsthand the power of basketball to create mentoring opportunities and build trusting relationships among middle and high school-aged kids. And he knows that when it comes to kids, fun and friendship are some of the most effective teaching tools around. A middle school math teacher and basketball coach at Seacrest Country Day School, he got the idea for Basketball Beyond Boundaries following a Seacrestsponsored trip he took to the region two summers ago through Advance Africa, a program designed to reduce infant mortality rates and improve general education in the country, which is one of the worlds hardest hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Along with math and English, we provided HIV/AIDS education whenever possible, he says. But the area is extremely conservative, he adds, and AIDS is not something the people there necessarily talk about very easily. Basketball turned out to be a wonderful tool for opening up the lines of communication and trust. Over the last two years, Mr. Jobe has taught a group of roughly 35 boys and girls in a very small classroom with few amenities. Like kids anywhere, they love to get outside and play, he says, adding the girls enjoy playing basketball every bit as much as the boys. Volunteers with Advance Africa have provided educational training for the areas existing teachers who are working with very limited supplies and scant resources. Many of the schools regular teachers grew up in the nearby slums themselves, and have chosen to stay on and help rather than looking for greater economic opportunity elsewhere, Mr. Jobe says. Were happy to be able to help them however we can. They have a very important job, but it isnt easy. Seeing the tremendously positive impact that their group was able to have on the areas children, their families and the community in general two years ago, Mr. Jobe decided to return to the region this past summer. The Advance Africa program had ended, however, and so this time he went on his own dime. During my first trip, I became instant friends with a volunteer from Mexico, Oscar de la Centas. We both agreed to return the following year to continue what we had started, he says. Some folks at the school were surprised to see us again. I think a lot of people promise to come back, but never do. As Advance Africa volunteers, Mr. Jobe and others stayed with area host families on his first trip. But during his second trip, he and Mr. de la Centas stayed in a hostel and supplied all of their own teach-Seacrest teacher scores a hit with hoops in Africa COURTESY PHOTORyan Jobe surrounded by some of his students in Africa

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 OCTOBER SPECIALS UNDERCOVER HISTORIAN Local Old-Timers get ready to walk down memory laneSome people say youre an old-timer if you can remember when it cost more to run a car than it did to park it. In Naples, we say you belong to the old-timers society if you or your family were here before Sept. 10, 1960. That was the day Hurricane Donna changed our town forever.Need for connectionOver the years since Hurricane Donna, as Naples evolved into a highly sought-after destination for those looking for their piece of paradise, it became increasingly more difficult for old-timers to recognize this place they called home, and even harder for them to connect with old friends. True to the spirit that made Naples what it is, these folks took it upon themselves to create a noble and honorable club whose membership had only one stringent requirement: You had to have been here when Hurricane Donna hit. No exceptions. The first meeting took place in 1988 at Merle and Palmer Harris home in Golden Gate. About 75 people attended. The following year, the meeting was held at the home of Thelma and Earl Hodges, the generous patrons of Hodges University, an institution dedicated to helping working people continue their education. The founders of the Old-Timers are considered to be Merle and Palmer Harris, Mary Prince Lipstate and Mr. and Mrs. Hodges, who were the keepers of the coveted Naples Old-Timers roster until it they turned it over, several years ago, to the Carroll family. Ray Carroll, whose family came to Naples in the late 1880s, is now the acting chairman (meaning he delegates the task to all of his family members, including Pat Carroll, his sister and a member of the Collier County School Board). Now the annual Old-Timers gathering takes place at the Naples Beach Club (its original and only name to an Old-Timer), thanks in great part to the graciousness of Mary Watkins. I suspect it is Mrs. Watkins generosity that also ensures the cost of the gathering is such that no long-time neighbor is ever turned away. Many other Old-Timers like Ernie Moczik, whose family built the first home with a pool in Aqualane Shores always lend a quiet, helping hand to be sure any family who may be upon momentary hard times is assured a seat at the table.One of the lucky fewTwo years ago, I was one of the lucky ones granted permission to attend the Old-Timers meeting. I brought along three banners for members to sign but only if they chose to do so. My orders were not to bother or approach anyone. I gladly complied, although bothering anyone turned out not to be an issue; having enough pens and space to allow the Old-Timers to move around to write on the banners was. Last year for their 20th anniversary, Naples Backyard History took the Old-Timers first group photo for posterity. This year, we didnt ask for anything. We figured wed imposed enough already. On Sunday, Oct. 4, some 500-plus people from the pioneer families of Naples and Collier County will meet for their 21st year to do what comes naturally for them all. Theyll share old stories with no pretense and no frills, all in the spirit of kinship as they walk down memory lane rekindling the magic that made this place we call home. In appreciation for the Old-Timers and the history they made, Cruise Naples at Tin City offers a complimentary Thank You for the Memories Cruise to Old-Timers and their families on Saturday, Oct. 3.

Jan Emfield, the gardens visionary, had a very well thought out plan. On Aug. 10, 1993, Mrs. Emfield typed a list that would become a tool for generating ideas, concepts and input for creating the Garden of Hope and Courage. She listed her concepts, her wishes, her dreams and goals everything she felt such a garden truly needed. At the bottom of her list, she added: A dream has to start somewhere and grow from its roots to become truth. Before she lost her battle with breast cancer in 1994, Mrs. Emfield shared her garden wishes with her husband Bob and their dear friend Richard DAmico. She asked that they someday see to it that a garden such as she designed on paper would exist, its purpose to bring national recognition to the women of this country whose efforts, commitments and mortal sacrifices in their battle against breast cancer inspire and give perpetual testimony to their courageous spirit. This garden would not only honor those who have died, but also encourage the living to continue their battle. From that moment on, Mr. Emfield and Mr. DAmico set out on a journey to ensure that Mrs. Emfields dream would some day become reality. A board of directors was formed, an agreement was signed, construction began and the Garden of Hope and Courage took root. As executive director of this special place, I have an incredible job. I witness regularly what an impact the garden has on individuals, families, visitors and on the entire Naples community. I not only witness it. I feel it. After I spoke to a leadership group about a year ago in the garden, one of the surgeons at the hospital pulled me aside to tell me something Ill never forget, nor will I ever forget to share. He told me that the Garden of Hope and Courage makes him a better doctor. Not all days in his line of work are good days, as is true with any job. He told me the garden gives him a muchdesired break, the breathing room he needs, an outlet so that he can continue doing his very best for the patients of this hospital. This is just one example of how the garden is an incredible gift. Every day, I see Mrs. Emfields vision become a reality. It was her intention for such a place to exist so that patients have a peaceful sanctuary, a place to breathe the fresh air, a place to remember loved ones and to honor them. It is my hope that you, too, now have that feeling. During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in order to continue spreading awareness while also raising funds to benefit the Garden of Hope and Courage and the Southwest Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the retailers and restaurants of Third Street South are going pink.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 year and a half. Not exactly. Maybe I shouldnt tell you this, but I hadnt had a mammogram in three years, she admits. Afterward, I had to have a biopsy and that scared the heck out of me. At 46, Dr. Peterson sits on the board of the American Cancer Society, she volunteers for regional breast cancer organizations and shes a partner at Radiology Regional Care Centers in Naples and Fort Myers. She also has five children, a husband, and a grandmother who lost both of her breasts to cancer 45 years ago a family history that puts her at greater risk. But even without a family history, the statistics of chance for any woman are unenviable: One in eight will have to endure the disease sometime in their lives, doctors say. In any population of 1,000 women walking in the mall, crossing a campus, passing through the airport, looking for a job one is likely have breast cancer and does not realize it.If they dont identify their disease early, theyre much less likely to survive. This year alone, almost 200 women will probably die of breast cancer in Southwest Florida, according to statistics provided by the regions most muscular breast cancer association, the nonprofit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Most disturbing, perhaps, is this fact and its thorny statistics, being reported here for the first time: Between 2002 and 2007, many women in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties stopped scheduling annual mammograms or performing the monthly self-examinations that demonstrably save lives for women over 40, or for those of any age with family histories of the disease. In some cases, they lived in relative isolation from care centers, or they lacked health insurance, comfortable incomes or even awareness. But in other cases, they came from middle class or opulent homes and educated backgrounds. In Collier County, for example, women from households with incomes greater than $50,000 were 14.2 percent less likely to schedule annual mammograms in 2007 than in 2002, a trend that has shown no sign of abating. In Charlotte County, the decline was similar such women were 13.8 percent less likely to monitor themselves. In Lee County, women who found themselves divorced, widowed or separated were 10.9 percent less likely to remain vigilant with annual mammograms or monthly self-examinations. Women over 65 were 6.3 percent less likely to follow good medical protocol. My assistant took me to my first mammogram because I was scared out of my mind it was still too close to my mothers death in 2002, says Dr. Denise Gay, a 38-year-old Naples periodontist and mother of two. She and her practice partner, Dr. Jeannie Moran, donate money from their practice, Olde Naples Periodontics, to Susan G. Komen each year and participate in the organizations annual fund-raising and awareness walk. Dr. Gay contributes to honor her mother, who died at 62 from breast cancer that had spread to her bones after an eight-year remission, and whom she still cant speak about without visible grief. Dr. Moran herself is a breast cancer survivor now four years in remission. She did regular mammograms and self-examinations, which is how she discovered a tumor in 2005. Even with all of that influence, during a conversation with a reporter, Dr. Gay realized that she probably hadnt followed up with another mammogram in two or three years. The date of her last one had escaped her. Your life just gets away from you, you get so busy, she admitted in a moment of surprise. Officials are hard put to offer any certain explanation for this startling tendency to go to sleep at the wheel, but they can make some good guesses based on similar anecdotal evidence. An oncology nurse in Collier County told me that she thinks this is happening because people arent as healthy as they used to be, and they have a lot of tests, and a mammogram is just one more they think they can do without, says Miriam Ross, the executive director of Susan G. Komen in Southwest Florida, which serves Hendry and Glades counties, as well as the three coastal counties in the region. Maybe if youre a woman with a family and kids, and in 2002 youre covered but in 2007 youre not, youre just not going to do it, says Ms. Ross. Fear is a factor too, but there has always been fear (of mammograms and of what examinations might reveal). What corporate says is that breast cancer has been in the forefront for a long time, with a lot of positive stories and great strides in this area, and people have become complacent. Back in the 1980s, before Susan G. Komen was formed, the survival rate, defined as living five years after detection, was 74 percent. Ignoring or forgetting about the problem becoming complacent may very well kill some women, says Dr. Peterson. We know that nowadays 98 percent of patients who can detect a breast cancer when its the size of a peanut or less can live five years or longer. So early detection is essential, she explains. My fear is that by losing out on the preventative health care of mammograms, and continuing on (obliviously) as some women have been, were going to see a lot more breast cancers five, eight or 10 years down the line, and our higher survival statistics are going to drop. Shes not the only one who fears the cost of ignoring the problem. What you see in a population when you screen their first mammograms is a lot of patients walking around with small cancers they dont know they have, from, say, a millimeter up to two centimeters and those may go undetected by a physician or in a breast squeeze, explains Dr. Thomas Fabian, a principle in Advanced Imaging in Charlotte County, and a Susan G. Komen board member. Then (the rate of discovery) dies down because youve screened everybody and picked up those problems in the first wave, so you start looking for new cancers in your existing patients two to four years down the road. If those patients remained habitually alert, the world might be a happier place. But that doesnt always happen. What frustrates you is that oftentimes patients dont come back, Dr. Fabian says. And when they disappear for three or four or five years and come back with a cancer, instead of it being a couple of millimeters and curable, its three or four centimeters. And incurable. The recession, too, may indirectly cost some women their lives, Dr. Peterson suggests. Those who have lost jobs or insurance or find themselves and their families struggling with reduced incomes may fail to recognize that help is always at hand. Even without insurance or money, women are surrounded by a powerful support system of public and private organizations that will find a way to provide mammograms and other care, for everybody. Just call us, pleads Miriam Ross, the Susan G. Komen official (1-877-GO KOMEN, or www.komenswfl.org). But there may be no help for those who dont reach out in time and end up drawing the short straw in the roulette of statistics. A 37-year-old woman came to me recently and her left breast was swollen to almost twice its normal size, Dr. Peterson says. She was just divorced, she has three children, and her employer had dropped her health insurance because the company could no longer pay for it, they told her. But she didnt want to complain because she had to have the job. She was afraid of losing it. There is no happy ending to this story. Pressed on the likely outcome, Dr. Peterson is candid and unequivocal. Shes going to die, the doctor says. She cant survive this. I can make her more comfortable, and we can remove the breast and the cancer there, but this is not survivable. Caretakers themselves may live in a vale of tears, since similarly anguishing stories multiply in spades during the course of their working lives. On days when Dr. Peterson has to confront the specter of breast cancer mortality that could have been avoided, I can walk out of the office in meltdown mode, she says. My faith is the thing that keeps me going through this, and my passion to make a difference in peoples lives. And I am very much an optimist that we can make things better. If I werent, I couldnt do this. Faith and support, support and faith both can be indispensable tools of survival that must accompany good medicine, insist many doctors, and their patients and survivors. Support is the most important thing in my opinion personal-level support, says Janet Gainey, a 62-year-old Bonita Springs resident and retired teacher. She lists the intense friendships of other women, the devotion of her husband and three sons, and the love of her two younger sisters as key reasons shes survived in a 20-year, on-again-off-again battle with a disease that will ultimately kill her. Metastatic breast cancer (cancer that spreads in the body, in her case to the lungs) is always fatal, and Ill have chemotherapy every Monday for the rest of my life, she explains. But this isnt tough. Its just something you live and deal with, if youre able to. I have been lucky. Because of my support, and the will to fight this and the desire to help other people (Mrs. Gainey volunteers at Susan G. Komen), Im here. Ive had the best health care, the best situations, the best friends and family, and I have hope and a positive attitude. I know a lot of people feel that faith is equally as important as personal support, and I think that faith is important. But personal-level support is the most important thing to me, and its faith based. It absolutely saves lives. Support, then, is the raison dtre of the stories that follow only a few of many on the southwest coast.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA14 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 family, friendship & shared agonies Dr. Denise Gay, 38, is a Naples periodontist and partner with Dr. Jeannie Moran in Olde Naples Periodontics, where she has been established for five years. Like many others, her life and Dr. Morans have both been branded by breast cancer. This is what happened to me. In January 2002, I lost my mother. She had developed breast cancer when I was in my 20s and she was in her 50s it was post menopausal (less aggressive), so we thought it had been completely removed. Perhaps stress may have contributed to what happened I believe it has a significant negative effect on people. My parents divorced and it took a toll on her. She raised four girls, we are all very close in age, and she was a very health conscious person my grandfather was a physician. She was our rock. She had both breasts removed. Then eight years later, when she was 61, she had pain in her tooth. She had broken some ribs, too, and we thought it was just arthritis there was a history in my mothers family. But the breast cancer had metastasized to her bones. She died on Jan. 6, 2002 and it was so tragic for me and my family. She was everything. She pushed my education. Its a very passionate loss for me still. So I wear a breast cancer pin every day. My mother walked the Susan G. Komen walk the whole eight years she had the disease, in Connecticut where Im from. When I got here (in 2004), I went to Miami and did that walk for two years until they developed the Coconut Point walk here. And my practice is a bronze donor in honor of my mother she was Mary Cathleen Rofrano Kendra. The year after I came to this practice, in 2005, my partner, Dr. Moran, who went for mammograms regularly, found a lump on her own self exam. My mom, by the way, when she had the breast lump originally, she had my sister feel it and say, Listen, this is what you look for in case you ever have to, OK? But Jeannie had treatment in 2005. She took a little time off but not much. Shes been in remission four years, and nothing has spread to the lymph nodes. And both of us walk every year. Cynthia Mott, 46, a sometime resident of Lee County, is a writer, student and Florida native who befriended Cynthia Snuffin when the two worked in the tomato brokering business together. When her friend was diagnosed with breast cancer, Ms. Mott tried to shoulder the experience with her, even sharing one of the most intimidating events that women can face the loss of hair, which many cite as the most trying emotional moment in the struggle against disease, second only to being told that they have cancer. Here, Ms. Mott remembers what that was like and recalls her precious friend. Yellow hair, red hair, brown hair, long hair, short hair, spiky hair, curly hair, straight hair and NO hair. Ive had all those and can tell you, the world relates differently to a female cant speak for males in each condition. With long blond curly hair and pink lipstick, a post office door will be held for you while you park your car, gather your packages and saunter a half-mile across a parking lot. With NO hair, the same door will drop in your face as youre rushing for the handle, this because you have been rendered invisible. When my friend Cindy was battling breast cancer and went through chemo and was losing her hair, we shaved our heads together one of the more traumatic experiences of my life and something I hope to never, ever, do again. I would, of course, but Lord knows, I dont want to. I thought it would be no big deal but it was a huge big deal not the act of being shaved, but living with the aftermath for three months. The world treated me like the world had never treated me before. Im used to people being nice, smiley, warm and pleasant to me and suddenly they werent and it was AWFUL. I promptly went out and bought two wigs: one, a Sharon Osbourne red job, the other a Shelley Long strawberry blond sleek thing. When I wasnt in wigs, I mostly wore head turbans, which I personally liked, though they didnt get many smiles in (some places). Cindy had moved to Tennessee, so when her hair started falling out, my sister Fraya went with me to see her and to do the head-shaving bit, which Id promised her Id do. We went to Cindys regular hairdresser, who was a clone of Dolly Partons character in Steel Magnolias. Fraya filmed while we were shaved. After Cindys long blond locks fell, we stared into the mirror and Cindy said: Look at those big huge ears. Her hairdresser, real Tennessee sweet-like, said, No, honey, you dont have big ears. You just have a cute leetle ole mouse head, thats all. Cindy became Mouse Head after that, for a while. From our head-shaving deal, she survived chemo, radiation, a mastectomy, more chemo and radiation and lived another two years. She was re-diagnosed with a liver-met on my birthday, Oct. 11, and died on my daughters birthday, Nov. 18, 2006. the patients: reflections on a hard odyssey Wendy Avner, 57, a south Lee County resident and her Chicagobased daughter Lindsay, 27, founder of the highly acclaimed organization Bright Pink, both carry the mutant gene BRCA 1 (Breast Cancer 1). This gene threatens not just a single woman with an extremely high risk of both breast and ovarian cancer a mother but forces daughters to face a 50-50 chance of inheriting the same risk. Those who carry BRCA 1 traditionally have much shorter life expectancies than the norm. In Ms. Avners case, the disease ravaged her family and forced her daughter to do a DNA test. At the age of 22, Lindsay discovered that she would have a 90-percent chance of getting breast and ovarian cancer during her lifetime. But courage is not something the Avners lack. Lindsay made the most difficult decision a decision now being faced by an increasing number of young women who learn through DNA testing that they carry the BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 gene. She became the youngest woman, at 23, ever to have a double mastectomy at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York City. The Avners turned the disease around and used it as a chance not only to grow closer to the remarkable world of women (and some men) who fight breast cancer, but to make a life helping others. Here, Mrs. Avner describes some of that experience in a tale that reveals at least one significant truth: Those who become aggressive and determined from the beginning not to be beaten by this disease, are much more likely to survive. To see both of them speaking about the experience, or learn more about Bright Pink, go to www.bebrightpink. com.My mother got breast cancer when she was 36, and died when she was 39. A week before she died, my grandmother died from breast cancer. Ive had several other relatives die of breast cancer on both my maternal and paternal side. Most of them got breast cancer and did not live more than three years. But my mother died in 1971, when I was 18. I had just started college at Tulane. My fathers sister got breast cancer and died from it, and she was in her 40s. Then her daughter also got breast cancer at 42. And my mothers sister got ovarian cancer and died from that, when I was in my early 40s. I went to hear a famous doctor speak about all this one day and he said, If you have a history, dont bury your head in the sand. This guy it was like a lightning bolt hit me. I booked an appointment with him a few weeks later, and he found a lump. It was benign, but I made up my mind I wouldnt let this disease beat me. So I went to see him religiously every three to four months. Hed say to me, Wendy, come back in a year, and Id say, OK. Then Id book an appointment three months later. I decided if my insurance wasnt going to pay for it, I would. I did it for 12 years, and when I was 42, I went to my gynecologist one day and found a swelling. I said, Dont worry, Im going in next week. That was malignant, and they did a lumpectomy and removed two small tumors, in stage one. I was so proactive. The doctor came in and said, You have breast cancer, and then he walked out and left. A nurse came in and said, Let me get a wheelchair to take you downstairs to go home. I said, NO. I left the room and searched the hospital, and it took me a while to find the doctor. I made him sit down and tell me what my options were, for 45 minutes. Then I got a second opinion, and decided to find the best person in the country Lindsay was 12 and my son was 3. So I went to Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York, and had a bilateral mastectomy. At the time, I didnt know I had the genetic defect. My husband and I said to each other, If this ever happens again, Wendy, you have to be aggressive at the beginning, thats your best chance. Hes been with me the whole time. He said, I want you here. I want to have a full life with you. So I had the bilateral mastectomy and I have not had reconstruction done.I went through 12 chemo treatments, lost my hair, all of that. And then about 10 months later, I noticed my stomach was getting big. I looked like I was nine months pregnant. The doctor kept saying it was just a side effect, but I woke up one day and my left leg was numb. When they did an ultrasound, I discovered I had ovarian cancer. It turns out they have different chemos for different cancers. I was going to be hospitalized overnight on these six treatments, and lose all my hair all over again. But my daughters bat mitzvah was scheduled three weeks out, so the show went on. I wanted no attention on me. I wanted it all on her, so I promised her I wouldnt start chemo until later. The bat mitzvah was on Saturday, and two days later, I started chemo again. (In 1997, Mrs. Avner founded the Hope Boutique, a shop associated with the Ohio State University Hospital in Columbus, offering everything any cancer victim might need or want, for people from all walks of life, as she puts it. And her daughter was growing up.) I didnt have the genetic testing done on myself until Lindsay was about 22. I thought, If I find out Ive got this gene, what am I going to do with the information? When this first happened, they were denying people employment, they were denying people insurance but after they passed the law protecting us, I decided I would go. My daughter went with me when I got the test and found out. I didnt get so upset, but she was very upset. Shed seen all this from the time she was a girl, she had to come home and help me around the house, when I had a 3-year-old son and was sick. After I had the test, one day my daughter saw a little girl riding on her fathers shoulders, at a Walk for the Cure event, and the girl had a sign on her back that said, I race in memory of my mother. Lindsay broke down. Shed just graduated from college, she was moving to Chicago, and I said, Im not telling you to be tested. But she did. She knew she only had a 50-50 chance of carrying BRCA 1, but when she went back to get the results, they told her she had it. She was hysterical. It was info overload. She got all these physical symptoms, stomach pains, migraines, 24/7 it was a physical nightmare. Here she was trying to start her life, but she had this on her back. Finally she said, I really think I need to get a prophylactic mastectomy done on both sides. I said, Id like to take you to my doctor in New York, and I want you to talk to him. She had immediate reconstruction the stories

It took her from a 90-percent chance of developing breast cancer in her life down to a 5-percent chance. And its very natural looking, they save the nipple and that whole thing. After that, a reporter from the Chicago Tribune interviewed Lindsay. She was on the front page. The Today Show found out, and they flew her and me out there to be on the show that was about four years ago. She started having a lot of people ask her for advice, and she noticed a lot of young women out there were scared they felt they had no one to turn to, no support system so thats when she started Bright Pink. The organization started growing and growing. She gave up her job and became the executive director, and now I write grants for her and help her at all the conventions. I have a tremendous amount of energy. Janet Gainey, 62, spent 25 years teaching elementary school in Massachusetts before moving to Bonita Springs five years ago. A 20-year survivor of metastatic breast cancer, her disease recurred 14 years after its initial discovery, spreading most recently to her lungs and spine. Now part of an 20-month experimental drug program in which she is taking either a placebo or a new and untried medicine (she chooses not to name the drug or provide more details), she is free of tumors, and has cancer cells only in her blood. Although her disease will ultimately prove fatal, she says, her longevity is not only a testament to her own strong spirit, but to good medicine, good support and hope. Keep in touch with people you love, tell them whats happening and never lie, advices Mrs. Gainey, who volunteers at Susan G. Komen and receives her care at Florida Cancer Specialists.I was 42 years old when I discovered the lump. Id had a scare five years prior and I saw Dr. Susan Love in Boston. (Dr. Love is a widely acclaimed pioneer and author in the fight against breast cancer.) I was able to get in to see her because Id had something Id been tested for earlier, but it was nothing. And I found the lump myself because she had taught me the very first time how to do that. Within a week, she had me into the office, I had a lumpectomy, and they removed a two-centimeter tumor. She did a second operation two weeks after that because they found cells outside of (the area) and I had to have a partial mastectomy. In less than a month after that, I had six weeks of radiation. And then two weeks after, I had six months of chemotherapy, all in the Harvard teaching hospital in Boston. When I came out of that treatment, I had negative numbers in terms of cancer cells in the body. They felt everything was absolutely clean. I had follow-ups every month for six months, then I went every three months, then every six months and then every year. For seven years, I had follow-ups with blood testing and I was always negative. So I retired and found another doctor. When I retired, I asked that any gifts to me be made as contributions to Susan B. Komen for the Cure, because they had helped me so much (in New England). As a result of having had radiation originally in the area of my esophagus, I had scar tissue and developed an acid reflex. It got so bad at one point the doctor felt I needed to see a specialist. He gave me a quick CT scan from my neck up, and they saw a black area down near my lung. That was just over five years ago. Finally I had another CT scan, a full one. And when I went back he said I had seven tumors in the lining of my right lung, opposite of the breast where Id had cancer. The doctor felt it was probably the breast cancer. Five of the tumors were malignant, so I went back to Boston to my old radiation oncologist. Dr. Love had believed in saving all of the slides with the original cancer cells, so 14 years after my operations, they were able to match up my cells with cells from the biopsy, and they were identical it was metastatic breast cancer. I began a hormone treatment, pills, to prevent estrogen from feeding the tumors. I did four of those in four years and each one went to a certain point and failed. During that time, the two tumors that werent malignant became malignant, and another one grew, so I had eight tumors. Then five small ones grew inside the lung, and I had them on my L2 and L5 spinal bones. Thats when they offered me this clinical trial, and its not finished. My body is very strong, my will is very strong, and I have a support system that, in my mind, is equal to no others. At Komen, weve packaged material to be passed out in October in all the churches in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties: breast cancer facts, how to do a self exam, and other things. The money people give for support, the camaraderie at Komen its the most amazing thing I ever participated in. Thousands of people are getting together to help ourselves and other women learn about the disease. To men, I would say this, and Ive talked about it enough with other women that I think we probably all feel the same way: The men have to become part of it, and listen to what we have to say. This is a way for us to share with them how we feel. In my opinion, the best thing for me and the best thing, I think, for everybody is that nowadays, we can talk about it. Its out there, and everybody knows about it. But 20 years ago, it was still a hushhush thing.science & medicine: a few questions answered Dr. Thomas Fabian, a radiologist and principal in Advanced Imaging in Charlotte County, is a Susan G. Komen for the Cure board member. He began practicing in Charlotte County in 1985. About the care:The reason for our prescription of yearly mammograms is simply that youre more likely to see a problem if you have a visual a mammogram to start with. Some people ask about the risks. There are some; its still an X-ray. But if someone gets a mammogram at 40, and she has 40 mammograms after that, what does that do? The incidence of inducing cancers is extremely tiny, so the risk is extremely remote. We end up picking up a lot of cancers in people who havent had a mammogram before, and we see a very positive trend between early detection and survival. Now we add high-quality ultrasound and the breast MRI to the variety of ways to look for these cancers. Some cancers are subtle or hard to pick up on a mammogram. Were looking for disease on the order of less than a millimeter some of the micro-calcifications we look at are down to the 70 micron size. Thats why visuals are so important. You can see the problems much sooner when theyre not invasive. Our lead mammographer here her mother died from breast cancer when she was young. Everybody has a family member or a friend who was touched by this disease. But things are significantly better now. It makes the practice very rewarding, with visual mammography being the biggest leap forward, followed by ultrasound and breast MRI. There should be very few if any patients who have a cancer you cant see, now.About the cancer:Breast cancer comes in multiple sizes and shapes, and in different types. Some cancers occur in milk ducts, others occur in milk glands, and others occur outside and enter the breast from other sites, such as lung cancer, melanoma or lymphoma spreading to the breast. So there are lots of different types. In each one, when we do biopsies, we consider DCIS, or Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (cancer developed at that site) versus IDC, or Invasive Ductal Cancer. The distinction there is huge in terms of how a patient is treated. If its invasive, it can spread anywhere. The genetic predisposition to this has always existed. But when they did the human genome project and they could look at the genetic characteristics of patients with different cancers, they saw that different cancers could exist in the same families. You can look at the chromosome makeup in each patient you can say, this gene is specific, the same gene in the same family then see how the expression of this gene created cancer. So with BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 (Breast Cancers 1 and 2, two mutant genes that cause the disease), they look at the chemical composition of the gene itself. If you look at the DNA you see those genes are formed differently, (you can see) the molecular biology of these processes. Now youve identified certain defects of genetic characteristics of these lesions that lead to cancer. So then you ask: How do you genetically reengineer the patient to correct that? I was at the University of Massachusetts at a conference six months ago, and one of the lead doctors doing research there is trying to re-engineer the human gene to take a new gene, and install it into the patients genetic pool to correct the abnormality. So you have to do genetic re-engineering (if you want to defeat inherited breast cancer). Dr. Mary Kay Peterson is a radiologist at Radiology Regional Care Centers in Fort Myers and Naples. A longtime volunteer for Susan G. Komen and the nonprofit physician group Partners for Breast Cancer Care, she began to practice medicine in 1993 and had to learn the difficult art of holding both compassion and empathy in the same care-taking chalice as empirical thinking and medical reasoning.The five-year survival rate for earlycaught breast cancer is 98 percent. Im talking about something managed with a lumpectomy that may not even need chemo or radiation smaller than a shelled peanut. What I want to say to women is that there are certain things we can do that will make a long-term impact in our life, and screening mammography is one of them. Its your insurance for an early-caught breast cancer. Not all breast cancers are caught by mammograms or ultrasounds or even MRIs, but for the vast majority, a mammogram is a step in right direction. The gold standard is to do it every year starting at age 40, or to start 10 years sooner than a first-degree relative might have been diagnosed premenopausally. You also have the screening breast ultrasound, which is subjective by the operator and focuses in on abnormalities felt or seen by mammograms. The MRI, on the other hand, gives you a better overall picture of the breast. The others will be appreciated (discovered) by the other two parts of recommended care: a monthly health exam by the woman, and an annual exam by a physician. There are some cancers, a small percentage, that are appreciated by physical inspection alone these are lobular carcinomas and theyre picked up by the patients themselves, or significant others, or doctors. They grow in sheets, so its hard to pick them up. If a woman notices she has dimpling or nipple retraction or rigid tissue in her breasts, those could be signs. For a screening mammogram your baseline, with no problems a patient doesnt even need a doctors prescription. She can make that appointment herself, come to the practice and get her screening mammogram. But she needs to have that physical exam by her physician. This will take minutes with the digital imaging. The computerized images come up directly in the room with the patient, and the technologist can do her own quality control and make sure images are appropriate for the radiologist to review. Before, images were on film, but were changing to (all digital) beginning now. The best time to schedule a mammogram is after your period the breasts are less tender and glandular tissue is less stimulated. The hormones will be at their lowest level in the cycle, and chances of this being uncomfortable are at the lowest. But heres what you get: A couple minutes of exam, total, and only seconds of compression, and this can really save a life. And I dont know of any insurances that do not cover an annual mammogram. If a woman has no insurance and does not have money to cover it, there are multiple organizations in both Lee and Collier and in Charlotte that will help. Typically, premenopausal breast cancers are more aggressive, so we need to catch them early. Here, we read more than 60,000 mammograms a year, and it is much more unusual to see on somebodys breast history sheet that comes with every mammogram that a woman does not have a family history of breast cancer. And finally I want to say this: I am absolutely optimistic enough to think that we can meet what Susan G. Komen and others organizations say is the goal, and eradicate breast cancer completely. Maybe not in Mary Kay Petersons life. But before my 10-year-old gets there? You betcha.

(AIA National Firm of the Year 2009) OSKAs notable projects include carefully crafted cultural facilities and homes that integrate the influences of art, craft and the built and natural landscapes into a seamless design solution. Ms. Murray will discuss the firms history and values as a collaborative practice, and how current projects are influenced by the natural landscape and regional design while integrating new technologies and sustainable practices. Friday, Nov. 6: Raymond Jungles, FASLA, principal at Raymond Jungles Landscape Architect, Miami Mr. Jungles, who designed the Brazilian Garden in the soon-to-reopen Naples Botanical Garden, uses nature as a means of selfexpression Whether hes designing a private rooftop oasis 34 stories in the air or the water gardens of Lincoln Road in the heart of Miami Beach, his inherent compassion for the natural landscape both its aesthetic context and horticultural integrity brings comfort and beauty into built settings. Who was Alfred French?The Florida Southwest Chapter of the AIA named its annual lecture series after well-known Naples architect Alfred W. French III, who believed in lifelong education and practiced what he preached. While a student at Princeton University in 1953, Mr. French wrote to his family that he believed, The real education in life is the education of life. A scholastic degree from a university is only a small step in preparing ones self for the job of living on ones own. But the education of life should never cease. Mr. French was a leader in his profession and in his community for more than 40 years as an architect, teacher and volunteer. His achievements reflect a passionate commitment to professional excellence and community service. As the principle in his firm Alfred French and Associates, he designed numerous important buildings in Naples and led efforts to obtain city and council approval for the Fifth Avenue revitalization plan of downtown Naples, the most sweeping proposal for redevelopment in the citys history. He also was instrumental in working with the City Council to develop a master plan for Cambier Park and collaborated with the Naples Art Association to design an art center that has become a cultural center of the community. Mr. French designed many important buildings in Naples, including The von Liebig Art Center, Gulfview Middle School and several private residences in the Port Royal neighborhood. His philosophy was that citizens should guide their communitys development through volunteer effort, whereby citizens donate their time and skills to achieve their dreams of what their community should be. Naples Mayor Bill Barnett said of Mr. French: He was a true community leader. He donated a lot of time and talent to make Naples a better place to live.

Up to $1000 off!Voted BEST place to buy 12 years in a row! We Love Warm Water What looks like a cupful of ruffles and lives at the bottom of shallow mangrove bays? Its the upsidedown jellyfish (Cassiopea xamachana), which thrives in large groups in the shallow waters of Southwest Floridas bays. To spot one, just look straight down in the water and youll see what looks like a flower lazily waving its petals. These jellies dont move around as other jellies do. Occasionally, a cleaver crab will scoot underneath one and carry the jelly on its back. The jellyfish camouflages the crab and also stings would-be predators. Jellyfish are not really fish at all. Their closest relatives are corals and sea anemones. All these animals look more like plants and are 95 percent water, but dont underestimate them. Their stinging cells are thread-like coils that often contain toxins. Fortunately, the upside-down jellyfish has a very mild toxin. Many people are immune, although some feel slight pain or swelling after handling them. Upside-down jellyfish swim with their tentacles facing upward. This allows Heres the straight story on upside-down jellyfish BY LEE BELANGERSpecial to Florida Weekly OUTDOORSthem to easily swim to the bottom where they resemble sea grasses. With tentacles extended, they trap plankton and tiny fish, often paralyzed them before eating them. One type of shrimp is immune to the upside-down jellyfish toxin. This shrimp lives among the tentacles and cleans the jellyfish. In return, the shrimp is safely hidden from predators. Upside-down jellyfish are found in the southern Gulf of Mexico along parts of Texas, Florida and the Caribbean. Our back bays are terrific places to find these fascinating creatures.

The cage is where your parrot will spend time when youre not home, when the family is sleeping, or when you cant pay attention to your pet. The first rule of caging: Buy the biggest cage you can afford. Forget the generic categorizations youll find in pet stores. Those descriptions represent the minimum size to consider a better bet is at least one size bigger. For a cockatiel, get a cage for a small parrot. The bigger, the better, always, as long as the bar spacing isnt so big that your pet could escape. Dimensions are important, too. Tall and narrow cages may look nice, but they force birds to fly more like a helicopter than in the style that comes naturally for them. Parrots like to fly horizontally as well as climb up and down in their cages, so a cage should be wide enough to accommodate both activities. Metal is generally the best material for a cage. Wood is too hard to clean and usually wont stand up to the abuse parrots can give out, and some manufacturers are experimenting with acrylics. But while these components can make attractive housing for your pet, they may not PET TALES Great cagesoffer enough social interaction to keep a bird happy. With so many cages available, how can you be sure youre buying one of high quality? Here are a few points to consider. Design. You want a cage to be attractive, but even more important, it should be workable for you and your bird. Look for features such as a birdproof latch; dishes that are easy to move, remove and clean; and a droppings tray that takes standard-sized newspapers. Make sure you can easily reach in and make contact with your bird, wherever your pet may be within the cage. Mess-catchers can be helpful, too. They look like an inverted metal skirt around the base of the cage. The best position for the slide-out droppings tray at the bottom of the cage is under a grid so your bird cant get to it. High-impact, durable plastic or metal is a good choice for a droppings tray. No matter what the material, the tray ought to slide out smoothly and be easy to clean. Sturdiness. Youre going to have your bird and the cage for a very long time, so you need to make sure the construction is solid. Check seams, welds and places where wires and corners meet. Is everything smooth and sturdy, with nothing for a bird to chip off and chew? Beware chipping or flaking paint, or welds that can be broken off and swallowed. BY DR. MARTY BECKER & GINA SPADAFORI_______________________________Universal Press Syndicate Dont scrimp when choosing your birds homeUsed cages can be a real value, if well-made to begin with. Look for wear and rust. And before introducing your bird to any cage that another bird has used, scrub thoroughly, disinfect with a bleach/water solution, rinse completely, and allow to air-dry. Convenience. A cage stand is great, especially with cages designed for smaller parrots. You and your bird are likely to appreciate having the cage off the ground in your case, for ease of access; for your birds, visual perspective. Some stands come with shelves, which are handy for storing newspapers, food and other supplies. Casters are a blessing, too, because you can easily move the cage and stand out from the wall to clean behind it. Take your time and shop carefully. Many parrot species live for decades, so youll want the best cage you can manage since you and your bird will be enjoying it for a very long time indeed.

BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES BUSINESS INDUSTRY BSECTIONWEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 WEEK at-a-glance What a great idea!Thanks to Planet Eureka!, area inventors have the chance to put their products on the fast track in a national forum. Planet Eureka! is a program of the U.S. Department of Commerce that helps business leaders find and filter innovations while also helping inventors connect to resources and potential partners in manufacturing and business development. The Department of Commerce wants an inventory of new innovations so that companies that are hurting right now can look at this and say, Wow! I can make this and I have a distribution channel for this, Ken Bloemer, executive director of Planet Eureka!, explained. When the Edison Inventors Association and the Small Business Development Center at Florida Gulf Coast University hosted a Planet Eureka! workshop recently, the session proved to be windfall for seasoned inventors and newbies alike. As soon as rookie inventor Pat Purnell, president of CNP Construction in Naples, learned of the workshop the day it was taking place, he jumped in his car and headed to FGCUs Lutgert Hall. It was fantastic, he said. In addition to the valuable tips and advice gleaned from Mr. Bloemer about Planet Eureka!, Mr. Purnell said he was thrilled to find out about the EIA. I had no idea that they even existed, so for me, thats another good thing that came out of it, he said about the local inventors association. Mr. Purnell has inventions in the pre-patent stage and isnt ready to talk about them. Several people who attended the forum already have several patents under their belts.

B3 Leery about joining the social media scene? Take a cue from small-business owners Ken and Joanne Glasgow of Simply Cupcakes in Naples. Just two months ago, Mr. Glasgow started a Facebook fan page where he posts about the flavors of cupcakes baked that day, specials available and what cupcakes remain as each business day winds down. Today Simply Cupcakes has more than 1,000 Facebook fans from all over the world. I dont know what were doing right, but its working for us, he said with a chuckle during a recent panel discussion hosted by the Social Media Club of Southwest Florida. How does he know its working? When someone comes in waving a coupon from Facebook for a free cupcake, he knows. When a first-time customer knows him and his wife by name even before making a purchase, he knows. And when someone simply steps up to the counter and announces the fact that they are Facebook fans, he knows. Theyre proud of it, he says. What does Mr. Glasgow like about social media? Mostly, he says, its the interaction. Hell post questions to fans and within an hours time he often has at least a couple dozen responses. Were talking to them and theyre talking to us, he said. You cant get that from regular advertising. And Facebook is free. Mr. Glasgow is humble about his social media efforts, but as he and many other small business owners are discovering, it doesnt require much, if any, tech savvy to make an impact.

Jennifer Languell was green long before green was hip. And now that green is in, the founder and president of Trifecta Construction Solutions is riding a wave of public awareness and interest that has made her not only an industry leader but a television personality as well. Trifecta bills itself as a consulting firm that helps builders, developers and commercial contractors navigate through the green building and sustainability disciplines. Ms. Languell and her four-person staff also work with local governments on green projects. Ive been doing this for 14 years, she says. Back when I first got started and you talked about green projects, people would say, green what? Those of us who pursued green initiatives were thought of as tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, freaky people. Times have definitely changed. Trifecta works with clients to define their green goals and guide them through the documentation process when they apply for certification under stringent environmental standards. Home builders, for example, can take several approaches to the green concept, she says. Some simply want to do something that can be certified as green and use that as a differentiator from their competitors. They may do it for a single project. Then we have clients that embrace green as a cultural corporate shift and want to go green across the board. While green is an encompassing term, Ms. Languells work involves matters of sustainability, conserving valuable resources, reducing energy and water consumption, protecting wildlife and reducing waste. An additional benefit is the goodwill that green projects engender, thereby enhancing the developers reputation as a responsible corporate citizen. Ms. Languell says Trifecta is a leading certifier of green homes in the state under Green Home Certification Standards set forth by the Florida Green Building Coalition. Since its inception in 2003, Trifecta has helped hundreds and hundreds of clients with green issues, she says. She declines to release revenue figures, but she says the struggling economy has definitely affected Trifectas business. We are down significantly from two years ago, she says. But shes convinced that business will rebound and the key to the turnaround, she insists, will be baby boomers. There are about 80 million baby boomers right now, she says. About 40 million of them are what we call green boomers... in many cases what we would call the original hippies. Theyve always been concerned about the environment and our resources, even when it wasnt trendy. Ms. Languells work has earned her wide recognition. She recently was re-elected to a second term as president of the Florida Green Building Coalition. She also received the Urban Land Institute of Southwest Floridas Pathfinder Award in recognition of her vision and leadership in sustainability. Ms. Languells ebullient personality and engaging speaking style (along with her signature flowing tresses) have made her a bit of a media sensation as well. She has appeared on CNN Headline News, HGTV and CNBC. But the defining moment of her media career occurred in a lightning-bolt moment some two years ago. I got a call on a Friday afternoon asking me if I would come to New York for an audition on Monday for the Discovery Channel, she says. They told me that someone at Discovery had seen a tape of me doing a presentation. She auditioned and was selected to be one of the hosts of Discovery Project Earth, the channels environmental series. She describes the next two years as pure insanity. I was gone all the time, she says. We went all over the world. We flew to Greenland, to London to Copenhagen we went everywhere. It was difficult, she concedes, to balance her television work and her commitment to Trifecta. It meant working 24/7, she says. The series was to run five years, but it is on hiatus, perhaps permanently, because of budgetary constraints. A self-styled Navy brat, Ms. Languell was born in San Diego. She was drawn to the Sunshine State by the engineering programs at the University of Florida, where she received her undergraduate degree in materials science and engineering in 1995. She later earned a masters degree and a doctorate at the university. She became acquainted with Southwest Florida while making a presentation to the Bonita Bay Group several years back and decided it was the ideal location because of its robust at the time building activity and because she also is very much a beach person. She had been working with a partner, but they separated and she began Trifecta nearly seven years ago. The 37-year-old Dr. Languell, who is single, is confounded when asked what occupies her spare time because there just isnt any. She conducts more than 100 seminars, training sessions and demonstrations each year, and she is sought as a speaker at national and international conferences on green initiatives.I dont want it to sound like I have any complaints, because I do not, she says. I love what I do and I believe in what I do. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 BY BILL CORNWELL ___________________Special to Florida Weekly BUSINESS PROFILE Proud to be green before green was good Jennifer LanguellCOURTESY PHOTO www.carsmetics.comFORT MYERS(239) 481-4400 NAPLES(239) 596-9494 Come in for a FREE EXACT QUOTE FREE Headlight Restoration w/Repair 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed!

Talking costs nothing but it could be helpful to you. One year ago, the expression it doesnt hurt to talk would have been a fallacy. In the context of pandemonium in multiple investment arenas, any conversation would have been very painful and filled with overtones of panic. But who do you talk to? To your existing adviser or money manager as well as to a variety of new potential investment advisers; among others, advisers who are held in high regard, advisers who are recommended by friends and colleagues and advisers who have expertise in areas of interest to you. Last fall, the U.S. equity market was in a free fall albeit there was some liquidity; debt markets fell and then froze, creating very little liquidity. In that environment, most investors found it difficult to see the forest from the trees as did their advisers. Often, counsel was given to ride it out, wait til the dust settles, and to not sell in panic or fear just as market bottoms were reached. The only problem with this advice, at least on an interim basis, was that the bottom was never forming and the It doesnt hurt to talkmarkets kept going lower and lower. The free fall in foreign equities ended in the fall of 2008 but the free fall in U.S. equities continued until March. Any conversation during those months might have been very emotionally charged (gut wrenching panic) or filled with ambiguity on a course of action. The passage of time heals many wounds and for the U.S. equity investor, the time elapsed since March has provided a recovery of much of prior investment losses. Having a conversation now could be meaningful and not riddled with fear and panic-reaction strategies. The advisers might also have a better idea of how they think the world will take shape, how markets will perform and how you might need a different portfolio allocation. At least the dust has settled. There are many reasons to take a new look at your portfolio. Most people have changed as a result of the economic downturn and investment losses. How so? Willingness to take risks, spending patterns, degree of leverage, need for income the list goes on. But for almost everyone, the last 12 months have brought a sea change to their lives. A need for income and reduced risk tolerance are high on the list. The U.S. equity market is up 60 percent from March lows; foreign markets are up about 100 percent from their fall 2008 lows; corporate debt instruments, which were illiquid 12 months ago, are now liquid. And these are but a few of the improvements. The U.S. equity market is trading about 20 percent above its 200 day moving average and that, my friends, does not happen too often. So some may want to take some chips off the table or move to covered-call portfolios and funds something that does not have so much exposure. A discussion with a financial adviser about portfolio mix used to focus on what mix/allocation of assets one should have, such as the right combination of cash, equities and government/corporate bonds with a dash of foreign exposure. Often, though, the discussion did not embrace all your holdings business, real estate and other illiquid income and nonincome producing assets. But these assets need to be included in a plan and may play a more important part of retirement assets than originally thought. For those with lesser resources, now is a good time to talk. Advisers doors are open and more welcoming to new, smaller investors. Now you might get the red carpet treatment. For those with millions of investment capital, it is a very good time to take a fresh look at your portfolio and to entertain the thoughts of new advisers. In our non-polygamist society (thank God something remains sacred), we have one spouse but we are not required to take a vow of fidelity to a single adviser. Its not only not required, it is inappropriate in todays world to limit the circle of views and information to a single person. Good managers like to protect their book of business but they should not give you a hard time if you want to move some capital to another adviser. Loyalty to an adviser is not owed; it is earned and re-earned and over and over again. When you talk to several new advisers, you might hear a recurring theme and take comfort in such. You might pick up understanding of an asset class for which you lack knowledge. You might find out that fees are more negotiable than you thought. You might like the perspective or portfolio approach of an adviser and allocate seed investment capital to them. And you just might return home from your investment walkabout even more assured that your current adviser, your current investment allocation, your current choice of funds, etc., is perfect for you. And it will never be a waste of time. It will at least be fodder for better golf course conversations.

Keynote speaker Newt Barrett, founder of Content Marketing Strategies and its parent corporation Voyager Media Inc., pointed out that in this new marketing world its more about listening to customers and providing them with relevant and compelling information. For us to succeed as small business marketers, we have to put away the megaphone, he said. Todays marketing is not about pushing products and services on customers, but rather creating an environment where customers find you. To do that, Mr. Barrett says the future is all about content marketing. Its the tsunami that is about to overtake businesses of every size, he said. For example, homebuyers are finding Chris Griffith of Downing-Frye Realty Inc. through her blog-powered Web site where she writes about everything relating to Bonita Springs. In fact, Ms. Griffith said, 90 percent of her new clients come from her online activities. Mr. Barrett refers to this as inbound marketing, explaining that Ms. Griffith is seen first as a knowledgeable and trusted expert about Bonita Springs; the real estate piece comes later. Getting content out to your target audience is key, and to do so. Mr. Barrett recommends every small business owner have a blog that positions you as the thought leader in your arena. He then suggests getting into the social media realm. It works, its powerful, and if you dont do it, other folks will pass you by, he said. You must think of yourselves as the new media.

Her View Stick, Running Stitch Organizer and Pattern Organizer have been picked up by several trade publications. Her products are advertised in Miles Kimball catalogs, sold at Wal-Mart and JoAnn Fabrics stores and have been considered by Office Depot. Shes always thinking about new applications for her products. Ms. Solich is also a board member of EIA. She first heard about Planet Eureka! via a press release that was e-mailed to the association. Intrigued, she immediately called the SBDC to inquire about the possibility of holding a workshop for local inventors at FGCU.Maintaing the innovation edgePlanet Eureka! is actually a Web site, www.planeteureka.org, that works with approximately 1,600 Manufacturing Extension Partnerships around the country within the framework of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Its also the home of the USA National Innovation Marketplace. One of the key attractions of the Planet Eureka! workshop is an offer to turn ideas into proposals that will be published on www.planeteureka.org for six months. When I saw that press release, I knew it was a great opportunity for inventors in our backyard, Ms. Solich said. One of the keys to success is to clearly articulate your idea in a language that excites buyers, licensors, distributors, manufacturers, investors and the like. Planet Eureka! is one of numerous initiatives aimed at growing the U.S. economy. For many years, the bulk of patents submitted to the U.S. Patent Trademark Office have come from outside the United States. It wasnt always that way. Back when Thomas Edison was busy submitting patents he is credited with holding 1,093 patents and is the only person in our country ever to have a patent granted every year for 65 consecutive years, 1868 to 1933 the U.S. was leading the way. I am very concerned about the trend, said Mr. Bloemer of Planet Eureka! China wants to own the market. They dont want to just be our low-cost producer. They are graduating three times as many engineers as we are every year. Nothing against China, but if we dont keep our innovation edge, were toast.Giving inventors a startMany of the innovations published on www.planeteureka.org have found a marketplace, according to Mr. Bloemer. One is Rock Rebar, a rebar product made from volcanic rock that weighs 75 percent less than steel, is 2.5 times stronger than steel, is cheaper to ship than steel and does not corrode. Our goal is to get new businesses out and moving and also to jumpstart existing businesses, Mr. Bloemer explained. Theres incredible interest, he said, adding www.planeteureka.org has had 5 million hits since April. Always interested in helping entrepreneurs and small businesses, the SBDC was more than happy to provide a setting for the recent forum. Weve had a long relationship with the Edison Inventors over the last 15 years and have always done whatever we could to help their members, said Dan Regelski, executive director SBDC. I cannot say enough about that organization and what theyve been able to accomplish. Id like to make this an annual event for the inventors of Southwest Florida. Estero resident Mark Pasek became one of the chosen earlier in the year, just as www.planeteureka.org was being launched at an inventors seminar in Orlando. Mr. Pasek, an EIA member, invented LiftAlone, a product that enables an individual to easily install anything from sheetrock to chandeliers overhead. Thanks to encouragement from Planet Eureka!s founder, Doug Hall, LiftAlone was demonstrated on ABCs Nightline in August. That brief program on innovation put Mr. Pasek in touch with many interested parties, and hes now negotiating with manufacturers. Theyve done so much for me so far, he said. This is a great presentation. I love going to anything to do with innovation and inventions to get ideas about marketing and manufacturing. Thats what this was.Creativity in SW FloridaWith inventing, its all about taking ideas to the next level. And inventors have great inspiration in Southwest Florida. The EIA meets every third Wednesday of the month in the Edison & Ford Winter Estates Museum in Fort Myers. Since 1992, an ever-growing group meets to discuss everything from patents to marketing. Members include inventors, investors, patent agents, patent attorneys, CAD designers and even those with relationships to foreign manufacturers. For more information about the association, visit www.edisoninventors. org. Based on the level of enthusiasm generated by the workshop at FGCU, Mr. Bloemer said he might be back before another year goes by. I will come back in a heartbeat as soon as they can put 30 to 40 inventors in a room together again, he said. This is the key thing jobs and wealth for the United States of America. That what the USA National Innovation Marketplace and Planet Eureka! are all about. IDEAFrom page 1BLOEMER COURTESY PHOTOwww.planeteureka.orgCOURTESY PHOTOLiftAlone
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 THE MOTLEY FOOL Investors who sold their stocks before the worst of the financial crisis struck last fall seemed like utter geniuses when the bottom fell out of the market. But before they can claim true victory, you have to ask them one question: Did they get back into stocks in time to pick up some big bargains, or are they still on the sidelines, watching the market go higher? When times get tough, youll always feel the temptation to run for the hills with your money by selling out of risky assets. Often, that strategy will pay off in the short run, as whatever situation inspired you to sell goes from bad to worse. But if you never regain confidence in the market even once stocks start to rebound, then your attempt to time the market will always turn out to have been a losing proposition. Unfortunately, failing to get back into the stock market in time is potentially a much larger mistake than never having sold your stocks in the first place. Sure, Dont Let Selling Sink You What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Should I Have Sold or Held On? Q Some stocks Ive held for a short period had recently shot up 180 percent and are now up about 100 percent. Should I have sold when I had a significant gain and re-bought when the price dropped? Or just wait and gain in the long run? D.D., onlineA Well, if you knew that the shares were peaking at 180 percent and that theyd fall considerably, then yes, you should have sold. The only problem is that we never know exactly what a stock is going to do in the short run.The best way to look at it is like this: When you buy a stock, you should have an idea of the degree to which its undervalued. Ideally, youll have an estimate of its intrinsic value. If the stock surges well beyond what you think its really worth, then sell, because its more likely to fall than rise from that point. But if a stock keeps rising within reason and the company remains healthy and growing, then consider just hanging on for the long term thats how many fortunes have been made, in companies such as Wal-Mart and Microsoft.Q I dont have very much money to be throwing around the stock market. Is there a rule of thumb on how much I should be investing when it costs me $8 a trade? C.B., onlineA Yes. Aim to spend no more than 2 percent of your investment on commission costs. So if youre spending $8 on a trade, you should be investing at least $400. Also, if you plan to sell quickly, you might want to factor in your $8 selling commission, upping your minimum investment sum to $800.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrichit feels good to have avoided seeing your portfolio drop as far as it would have if you had held on to all your stocks. But after the market recovers, you could easily see yourself with a smaller net worth than if you had stuck with your original portfolio. Protecting your portfolio from losses is one of the most important keys to being a successful investor. But if you decide that youre going to sell shares of a stock you like for the long term, you need to remember that selling is only the first part of a two-part process. You also need to figure out when youre going to buy back those shares. As simple as that sounds, experience shows that its anything but. Its actually much easier to accept the rises and falls of the market by holding on to the stocks you think are good long-term holdings through thick and thin. That will save you from a potentially much larger mistake from which your portfolio might never recover. My brilliant broker (ex-broker, actually) convinced me to buy MCI WorldCom back at the beginning of the Internet boom. We then rode it all the way down to bankruptcy. He also had me buy Oracle back at the beginning of the Internet boom, but he didnt want to sell when we were up something like 1,000 percent. When I sold it, I made only about a 400 percent profit. I bought into the American Heritage fund because I knew the fund manager and because it was the hot fund at the time, written up in the financial press. I lost about 90 percent in it. But on the positive side, Ive been investing in some higherquality funds with solid long-term performances. I just wish that I had thrown all my money in those funds over the years. Jon Perelstein, Stamford, Conn.The Fool Responds: We learn many lessons the hard way. Not all brokers are smart or skilled, for example. And even good brokers cant know when a stock has peaked. Great mutual funds can serve you well learn more at www.fool.com/mutualfunds/ mutualfunds.htm. The Motley Fool TakeTiffany & Co.s (NYSE: TIF) second-quarter earnings report was rather impressive for a luxury retailer in todays economic environment. Earnings and revenue were down 30 percent and 16 percent, respectively, but those results beat analysts expectations. (Sales at the companys flagship Manhattan store were down 30 percent.)Meanwhile, management remains focused on keeping the brand strong and being positioned to take advantage when the economy shows real growth. Tiffany continues to be a relentless cost cutter. Operating expenses were slashed 15 percent from the year-earlier quarter, although the cuts did not fully offset the sales decline.Time to Shop at Tiffany? Name That CompanyBased in Philadelphia and one of Fortune magazines Most Admired Companies, I offer food services, facilities management, and uniform and career apparel to health care institutions, universities and school districts, stadiums and arenas, and businesses.

Im one of Americas Last weeks trivia answerI was officially formed in 1925, but one of my founders tractors was used by the Allies in World War I.

While competitors such as Zales are closing many locations, Tiffany is managing to grow, having increased its store count by 8 percent in the past year and expecting 6 percent growth in the coming year. The total store count was recently at 211.Tiffanys recent price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio suggests no screaming bargain, as its considerably higher than alternatives such as Coach and Aeropostale. (Coach is a Motley Fool Stock Adviser recommendation.) Its valuation would be a stretch if times were good, and its a non-starter when the specialty retailer is looking for ways to grow sales. The company merits a berth on your watch list, but youll probably do well to hold off on buying, waiting for a pullback closer to $30. Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Copies are available online at www.swfrpc.org and at www.fgcu.edu/cob/reri. With the local economy hit hard by the recent recession, there have been calls to create additional jobs and diversify the regional economy. There are generally three assistance methods provided by economic development organizations to help diversify and improve the quality of jobs available in a region: (1) business recruitment, (2) retention and expansion, and (3) entrepreneurial assistance to help new or young startup companies in the region. This study focused on the third economic development strategy for a region. A business incubator is an office or warehouse type building that provides space for startup companies and works with a network of business professionals to assist new businesses through the first couple of years of operation, which is when they are most likely to fail due to inexperience. The benefit to the new business entrepreneur is access to a regional network of professional expertise that helps the new managers and owners develop a business plan including product or service development, a management and legal structure and financial and marketing milestones. The benefit to the community is the creation of new and better jobs, wealth creation, technology commercialization and economic diversification. The National Association of Business Incubation reports that there are approximately 1,100 incubators in the United States and 7,000 incubators worldwide. This study took approximately nine months to complete and included interviews with eight regional incubator networks managers across the U.S., along with an extensive review of articles and publications on incubators and regional networks. Five Southwest Florida focus groups and FGCU, Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council release Southwest Florida business incubator study22 key stakeholder interviews were conducted to provide regional information on the current entrepreneurial process and the economic development desires of the region. The literature research, interviews and focus groups form the basis for the regional business incubator study recommendations for Southwest Florida. The study provides key recommendations for the Southwest Florida regions economic development efforts, including: Develop a regional business incubator consulting and mentoring program; Develop a research park tied to the regional colleges and universities; Develop a public-private partnership to manage and fund the regional incubator network; Hire experienced managers for the network; and Develop an informal and potentially formal link with the Florida High Tech Corridor. The study was sponsored by Southwest Florida economic development organizations, regional firms, foundations and private individuals along with matching funds from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.

In this day and age, marriage, sadly, is no guarantee of lasting fidelity. The only sure way to secure a man is to be the sort of woman every man wants, not just at the beginning of the relationship but indefinitely. Silk stockings are a good place to start. The front page of The New York Times last week detailed the latest drama in the John Edwards scandal. A grand jury in Raleigh, N.C., is looking into whether Mr. Edwards committed a crime by funneling campaign money into the hands of his mistress, Rielle Hunter. Whats surprising about this and other public affairs is that they still manage to stir up public outrage. Weve seen Democrats solicit prostitutes and Republicans court Argentineans. With the start of The Good Wife on CBS this fall, political affairs have even gone primetime. Sometimes it feels like weve seen it all (with the possible exception of TV evangelist Ted Haggard, whose 2006 gay-sex-and-meth scandal still takes the cake). I wonder, then, why we still get worked up at the idea of a grown man taking a mistress? After all, its practically public policy in other countries. In 1996, at the funeral of former French president Franois Mitterrand, both his wife and his mistress attended the intimate family ceremony. And Englands Prince Charles carried on an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles for years until the two married in 2005. My sense is that the brouhaha boils Becoming the mistress you fear SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS ArtisHENDERSON email@example.com We imagine them beautiful and powerful, decked in silk stockings, lace garters and the other accoutrements of spousal-thievery...down to intimidation. Many women and here Im talking about the good wives, the ones who do laundry, raise kids and serve a hot meal every night are threatened by the idea of a sexy other woman who comes with no strings attached. And lets be honest. Mistresses have real appeal. We imagine them beautiful and powerful, decked in silk stockings, lace garters and the other accoutrements of spousalthievery. They are coy, witty and entertaining. Emma carved, put bits on Lons plate with all sorts of coquettish ways, Gustave Flaubert writes in Madame Bovary of the titular wife-turned-mistress, and she laughed with a libertine laugh when the froth of the champagne ran over from the glass to the rings on her fingers. A mistress is, in short, everything we wish to be. Why, then, are we none of these things? Why, when we become girlfriends and, later, wives, do we lose the sparkle that attracted our partners in the first place? I recently hashed this question out with my friend Annie, a smart, sexy girl who played mistress to an engaged man, became his girlfriend when the engagement broke off, then suddenly and inexplicably turned into his exgirlfriend. Over endless cups of coffee, we analyzed the relationship from every angle. It boiled down to this: girlfriends and wives make demands. They demand the trash be taken out, demand a man listen to their needs, demand flowers and vacations and independence and respect. They demand these things in a territorial, entitled way, rather than waiting for them to come. Because when a man loves a woman is captivated by her he will do these things automatically. t st d ation.

And, unlike most of our major museums, the series recognizes that art isnt just created by white men; it includes a healthy dose of artists of color and artists who are women. Keep the changeMy co-worker Roger Williams recently wrote a column wishing local NPR station WGCU-FM had kept its classical music programming. Of course, hes entitled to his opinion. I just happen to disagree with him. Im literally all over the dial when listening to music, but Ive been finding myself listening to our local NPR a lot more often since the programming change. (And since Oldies 92.5-FM went off the air. More on that next.) Theres jazz late at night, Fresh Air daily now, not just on weekends, and World Caf on Friday evenings. Where else could we hear such diverse music, and such interesting arts interviews? Classical music lovers havent been left high and dry; they can listen to the HD station, and there are numerous concerts at both the Phil and the Barbara B. Mann, with four classical orchestras in the area.I listened to NPR in New York City and Chicago, and I still miss the diversity of programming I heard on those stations. To me, thats what NPR is all about: a mixture of programming, not the top hits of classical music recycled over and over again. A bad moveConversely, while the local NPR station has changed for the better, a station that played a wonderful variety of music from different decades has changed for the worst. To my dismay, radio station Oldies 92.5-FM has switched from fun music to hate-filled talk radio. Its now Fox News WFSX 92.5-FM. Bad move. I know its not uncommon for radio stations to change formats overnight. Oldies to country. Top 20 to hip-hop. But this? Come on. I really dont care to hear Rush Limbaugh or Glen Beck or anyone giving me half-truths and spewing hate. Its like having garbage and sludge poured into my ears. So Meridian Broadcasting has lost me as a loyal listener. I miss the music. If you miss it, too, heres who you can contact, according to Meridian Broadcastings Web site: Randy Marsh, director of programming. His numbers listed as 479-5567, his e-mail as email@example.com. This boneheaded switch just might be the tipping point that makes me finally switch to satellite radio. premiere of Jannissary Band, composed by Stan Leonard, former timpanist of the Pittsburgh Symphony. An intriguing composition, I thought it sounded a little like Klingon music. And it included, believe it or not, the playing of brake drums (as in automobile brake drums). Now where else would you get to hear that? Read to change your lifeIm a big fan of George Pelecanos, who, in addition to his novels, wrote and produced episodes for HBOs gritty, insightful series The Wire. I just read his new novel, The Way Home, about a son who gets in trouble with the law when hes young, and what happens when hes released from juvenile lock-up. The book, which Mr. Pelecanos dedicated to his father, focuses on the often-frustrating dynamics of the fatherson relationship. Sometimes, Mr. Pelecanos seems to be saying, it doesnt matter how good your upbringing is; sometimes, male teens brains just go haywire. Bad impulse control and not considering the consequences of actions can lead to disaster. The Way Home also highlights the need for rehabilitation of juvenile offenders, putting them in an environment that helps them get on the right track instead of throwing them in prison with more hardened criminals. But tucked into this latest novel are a couple of characters who love books and who love to read. And it changes their lives. Books help them see beyond the confines of their own small neighborhood and limited experience. One character who discovers the joys of reading challenges himself to read more difficult books. I couldnt help but think that Mr. Pelecanos book, most likely read by people on both sides of the law, might help inspire some to a love of reading. I was reminded of reading The Autobiography of Malcolm X in high school, specifically, the scene where he develops his love of reading while in prison. He realizes his vocabulary is lacking, so he gets a dictionary and starts copying it, word-by-word, starting with the As. Rutbuster excerptThe October issue of Gulfshore Life magazine features excerpts from Secrets of a Rutbuster: Breaking Rules and Selling Dreams by the Phils CEO and founder, Myra Janco Daniels. Part memoir, part business self-help book, it was just released late this month. In December, the magazine will again excerpt the book, focusing on how Daniels moved to Naples and built the Phil. Back in July, I wrote about Mrs. Daniels forthcoming book and her marriage in the 1960s to advertising guru Draper Daniels, who became the inspiration for the character of Don Draper in AMCs Mad Men drama series. Art 21This past Friday, the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers teamed up with local PBS station WGCU-TV for a sneak preview of an upcoming episode of Art 21: Art in the 21st Century. The Peabody Award-winning series, now beginning its fifth season, features interviews with modern artists about their work, their inspiration and their process. The Alliance screened episode two, featuring pop sculptor Jeff Koons, painter Mary Heilmann, photographer Florian Maier-Aiche and videographer Cao Fei. Mr. Koons, of course, is known for his oversized kitch sculptures; Mr. MaierAiche shoots landscape photographs and then manipulates them on the computer; and Ms. Fei created a city on Second Life, a 3D virtual world accessed by computer. But it was Ms. Heilmanns work and interview that grabbed me. Shes a vivacious and outspoken woman, and her work seemed to have the most blood and life to it: colorful, abstract paintings with quirky titles such as Surfing on Acid. The four episodes, which feature three or four artists each, are divided by theme: Compassion, Fantasy, Transformation and Systems. Art: 21 begins airing its new season on WGCU-TV at 10 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7, with encore presentations at 10:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9, and 11 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15. Whether its an artist whose ideas are being brought to life by a large staff or ARTS COMMENTARY I suffer from the writers habit of jotting things down on scraps of paper, then stuffing them in my purse or in my pocket. It isnt, I readily admit, the best habit, but at least Im writing things down and not trying to store everything in my head. This weeks column is a little of this, a little of that, here and there. Think of it, maybe, as reading through the scraps of paper that accumulate in the corners of my purse. Bang that drumA couple of weeks ago, I went to the Percussion Summit at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. Ive been attending since its inception, and for me, its an annual dont-miss event. (If youve never gone, well, all I can say is: Youre missing out.) Typically held on a Saturday in early September, the concert brings together percussionists from various orchestras with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestras percussionists. Generally, there are two guest artists, everything from R&B drummers to jazz xylophonists. All of the music is performed on percussion instruments, which, in addition to a wide variety of drums, include marimbas, xylophones, cymbals, tambourines, wooden blocks, cowbells and piano basically, anything that can be struck by hand, mallet or stick to create a sound. This year, five musicians played a number on a row of plastic and metal trash cans. After it was met with thunderous applause, the summits host and originator of the program, John Evans (the Phils principal timpanist), said ruefully, but with a smile: Ten music degrees among the five of us up here, and this is the number youre going to remember. Last years concert seemed a little too top-heavy with steel drums; this year, the focus seemed to be more on marimbas, including a medley of tunes from the opera Carmen played entirely on marimbas. Drummer Zoro, who tours with Lenny Kravitz, was this years guest artist. Sitting front and center behind his drum kit, he played tunes such as Paul Simons Late in the Evening and Stevie Wonders I Wish. But the thrill for me is hearing music Id never get to hear anywhere else.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 A&E C9 In conjunction with the Kiwanis Club of East Naples, the East Naples and North Naples fire departments are collecting sneakers for local school children. The sixth annual drive began in August and continues through October. Donations have really slowed down in the past couple of weeks, says Greg Speers of East Naples Fire Rescue. Unfortunately, he adds, there are still many children in the community who need shoes. Most needed are new sneakers for boys and girls ages 5-13. Sizes recommended are child size 11 through adult size 9. Shoes, or monetary donations to help purchase shoes, can be dropped off at any East Naples or North Naples fire station, or at other participating fire districts within Collier County. If you are unable to drop-off at a nearby fire station,call East Naples Fire Rescue at 774-7111 or North Naples Fire Rescue at 5979227, and pick-up will be arranged. Kiwanians and fire rescue personnel sort the shoes and deliver them to elementary and middle schools throughout Collier County, where staff members at each school select and fit the students who have the greatest need. Back-to-School Sneaker Drive continuesGIVING In todays economy, it is imperative we be wise with our money and learn how to save as well as spend. Its also important that we teach our children the same. PACE, Collier at Immokalee girls are getting the chance to learn the stepping stones to wealth management thanks to Faith Matous, vice president of PNC Banks Wealth Management division in Naples and president of the Naples chapter of the Executive Womens Golf Association. In a series of five seminars geared toward adolescents, the girls are learning the difference between wants and needs, as well as responsible and irresponsible spending. Covering areas like personal finance, economics, consumer science and business education, Ms. Matous teaches skills such as making better personal finance choices and helps her students understand the importance of making these choices based on evaluating their wants, needs, goals, values and standards. Concepts covered, such as meeting needs before wants and the realization that most people have a limited amount of money, help put things into perspective for the girls. In the most recent seminar, the girls were instructed to imagine they were part of a family of four stranded on an island for four months. With a $1,000 budget and a list of items to choose from, the girls teamed up to prioritize their spending with this advice: Use as little as possible to get as much as possible of things you cant live without.The room came alive as the teams started discussing their options. The realization that an iPod is not a necessity caused some laughter amongst the girls.Sixth-grader Vanessa B. shared her thoughts on the learning experience: I enjoyed learning to be on a budget when you dont have any money, its important to know if you are in this situation. That was the majority consensus from the girls, many who come from families with little or no money. We hope they can take this knowledge and use it to make better lives for them and their families. PACE tries to give the girls the tools they need to be the best they can and get the most out of their choices. Vacharee Howard is executive director of the PACE Center for Girls, Collier at Immokalee. The community-based, gender-responsive prevention and academic program provides girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy.

World rights reserved. King Features Synd., Inc. World rights reserved. Puzzle Difficulty this week: LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Trying to make peace among quarreling family members, friends or colleagues can be tough. Expect some resistance, maybe even some expressions of resentment. But stay with it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Changing your mind doesnt have to be a problem once you realize that you might have good and sufficient cause to do so. Make your explanations clear and complete. Good luck. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An unkept promise can be irksome and easily raise the Archers ire. But instead of getting into a confrontation, take time to check why someone you relied on came up short. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A new workplace distraction creates an unnecessary delay. The sooner you deal with it, the better for all concerned. A personal matter also should be attended to as soon as possible. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Once again, the Aquarians gift for applying both practical and creative methods to resolve a situation makes all the difference. Personal relationships thrive during the weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A relationship appears to be losing its once-strong appeal for reasons that might be different from what you think. An open and honest talk could lead to some surprising revelations. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A changing situation calls for a change in plans. Although you might prefer the schedule you had already worked up, you could do better by agreeing to make the needed adjustments. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That once seemingly rock-solid proposition you favored might be hiding some serious flaws. Take time to check it more carefully and question anything that seems out of kilter. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Finish up those lingering tasks so that you can then arrange to spend some time in quiet reflection. This will go a long way in restoring both your physical and spiritual energies. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A family situation could heat up and boil over unless you deal with it as soon as possible. Try to persuade other family members to work with you to help cool things down. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Cheer up, Kitty Cat! That low feeling will begin to ebb by midweek, and you should be back in the social swirl in time for the weekend. A long-postponed deal could be starting up again. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Going too fast and too far on too little knowledge could be risky. Best to slow down and check for any gaps in your information. Its what you dont know that could hurt you. BORN THIS WEEK: Your life is bound by your belief that character counts more than anything else. 99 Senior CoffeeBE COOL AT JOES! NEW AC INSTALLED!

WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2009 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C11 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com An inventor with a dream, a creation that changes everything, and the chaos that ensues after the invention spirals out of control: Weve seen the story elements in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs before, but this is an animated family movie thats fun, imaginative and a great joy to watch, especially if youre seeing it in spectacular 3-D. Swallow Falls cannot be a pleasant place to live. A small island in the Atlantic Ocean, it exists solely on the basis of its sardine industry, which is struggling. Young inventor Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) wants to change the world with his creations, even if his churlish father (voice of James Caan) doesnt understand his dreams the way his late mother (voice of Lauren Graham) once did.After a number of ideas that lead to moderate success (spray-on shoes, a monkey translator, etc.), Flint concocts a machine that turns water into food. During the mayors (voice of Bruce Campbell) dedication of a new theme park, Flint loses control of the machine, causing it to fly into the sky. And then it starts to rain cheeseburgers. Especially fascinated by the weather is aspiring network weathergirl Sam Sparks (voice of Anna Faris), whos shunned her naturally geeky personality for the flash and beauty needed to succeed on television. At first she and the townspeople are thrilled that its raining steak and doughnuts, but as the food starts getting bigger, trouble abounds. The film is showing in IMAX 3-D in some cities and those who see it in that format are in for a great show. The movie looks fabulous and you sort of havent lived until youve had a spaghetti tornado fly at your face. The sweetest sequence comes either when Flint tries to woo Sam inside a huge Jell-O mold, The Informant! (Matt Damon, Scott Bakula, Joel McHale) An executive (Damon) with a corn-processing company becomes paranoid and turns whistleblower to the FBI when his companys global price-fixing scheme threatens his job. Logic would suggest that he tell the FBI agents (Bakula and McHale) all he knows, but thats not his style. Through the oversaturated visual style, cartoonish music and random voiceover narration, director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) is going for an oddball funny reality here, but only achieves unfunny oddball. Rated R.Jennifers Body (Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Simmons) After an aspiring rock band fails to demonize her not-so-virginal body, Jennifer (Fox) becomes an undead demon who uses her beauty to prey on horny high school guys. Writer Diablo Cody (Juno) and director Karyn Kusama (Aeon Flux) have fashioned this horror comedy as a not-so subtle metaphor promoting abstinence, which is ironic given how eager it is to glorify Ms. Foxs sexuality. If all you want is Ms. Fox being sexy and seductive, have at it. Rated R. LATEST FILMS CAPSULES Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs REVIEWED BY DAN HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com ............Is it worth $10? Yes >>To get the raining cheeseburgers just right, the lmmakers dropped food in front of time-lapse cameras so animators could study how cheeseburgers react when dropped from great heights. Hint: theres a lot of splatting involved. Did you know? danHUDAK www.hudakonhollywood.com or when Flint covers the town with ice cream to make the local cop (voice of Mr. T) and his son (voice of Bobbe J. Thompson) happy. You decide. Writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller based the film on a childrens book by Ron and Judi Barrett. One reason Meatballs works is because it has the universal appeal of being about people with dreams and daring to go after those dreams regardless of adversity. Its inspiring to see Flint and Sam do what it takes to make their dreams a reality, even if they cant entirely control the outcome. Lets be honest: Its cool to see gigantic bagels flatten Times Square and pizza fall from the sky and daring escapes to sea on giant pieces of toast. With all the food flying around on screen, you probably dont want to go to the movie hungry. But if you do, at least youll be hungry and entertained.

We Love Warm Water Beautiful Romantic Captivating 30% Discount Fatal Journey: The Final Expedition of Henry HudsonHenry Hudson was an English navigator and explorer. Not much is known about his early life, but as an adult Mr. Hudson was a stubborn and determined man. In fact, it was that very bullheadedness that eventually led to his death. Mr. Hudsons first three attempts to find a northeast passage to Asia ended in failure, although he did become the first European to explore parts of North America and helped establish Dutch claims in the region. During the winter of 1610, he decided to make yet another try. Financed by the Virginia Company and the British East India Company, he picked a 22-man crew that included his 17-year-old son, and together they set sail in a small ship, The Discovery.Mr. Hudson chose a northerly route past Ireland, and after avoiding fields of icebergs and overcoming other obstacles, his ship became icebound in what would soon become known as Hudson Bay. By the time the spring thaw arrived, food supplies were scarce and the crew had become cranky. Mr. Hudson wanted to press on, but his plan triggered a mutiny.Mr. Hudson, his son and seven others were placed in a skiff and set afloat in the bay, where they quickly perished in one of the most remote places on the planet. Their remains were never found.It isnt easy to blow the dust off of 400 years of history and make it relevant, but Peter C. Mancall has managed to do just that. Mr. Mancall, a professor of history and anthropology at the University of Southern California, has meticulously pieced together what little is known about Mr. Hudson and the terrible fate he was dealt on his final expedition. This is an incredible, true story of mutiny and murder set against the harsh backdrop of the Arctic. It is an extraordinary tale of one mans determination and the marks he made on world history that continue to reverberate even to this day. By Peter C.

The third exhibit opening the new season at the Naples Museum of Art is The Art of Janet Fish, consisting of approximately 25 paintings by the celebrated contemporary artist. Ms. Fish was born in Boston in 1938 and raised on the island of Bermuda.

Wear your favorite NFL Jersey for a FREE draft beer1920s phonograph lamps hid latest technologyKOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING terryKOVEL firstname.lastname@example.org Decorators used to try to hide a phonograph or radio because it did not match the rest of the rooms decor. They still worry about how to hide a stereo or television, but attractive speakers and flat screens have made technology less intrusive. The early 1900s room had to hold a record player with a large horn. Soon horns were made more decorative with painted designs. A few years later, when phonographs could be made with internal sound amplifiers, a record player was often combined with a radio inside a large piece of wooden furniture. There was even space to store records. But one unique solution created about 1925 is the phonograph lamp. The Capital Elect Co. made a table lamp with a fringed fabric shade that covered the working parts of a disc record player. The brass lamp was made to sit on a table so at night it could be lit and turned on to play recorded music. The disc phonograph hidden in a table lamp went out of style quickly, and today only a few are ever offered for sale. A restored phonograph lamp, a true conversation piece, sold for $1,200 at Morphy Auctions in Denver, Pa., in August. Ms. Kovel answers your questions: Q: I inherited some green Depression glass dishes from my uncle, who bought them in the 1920s. I have the original sales receipt. Where can I find information? I would like to know the value in case I decide to sell them. The dishes are marked on the bottom with the letter C within a triangle. A: Your dishes were made by Cambridge Glass Co. of Cambridge, Ohio. The company was founded in 1901. It closed in 1954, reopened briefly, then closed again in 1958. The mark you describe was used after 1920. Its impossible to suggest a value for your dishes without knowing the pattern. Cambridge glass dishes can sell for anywhere from under $10 to well over $100. Q: I have a huge piece of wooden furniture we bought in San Mateo, Calif., in the early 1980s. When we got it home, we had to reconstruct the kitchen to make it fit. Its made up of a long base of cabinets topped by three revolving glass doors and an upper cabinet of regular glass doors. The facing plate on one section says O.M. Whitman & Co., Boston, Mass., Patented, and then lists several dates ranging from June 12, 1883, to Feb. 7, 1899. What do all the dates mean, and what can you tell me about O.M. Whitman? A: The dates are patent dates that relate to various refrigeration patents obtained by Orrin M. Whitman, the founder of O.M. Whitman & Co. Whitman made refrigerators for grocery stores. The glass-fronted rolling drawers on your furniture were once refrigerated for store displays of butter and cheese. Q: I need help identifying a canvas banner that says Jamestown Exposition 1607-1907. It pictures two Indians watching a ship sailing toward them. A: Your textile is a souvenir from the Jamestown Exposition, which commemorated the 300th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the American colonies. The exhibition was held at Sewells Point, Va., about 30 miles from the actual site of the settlement. The town of Jamestown was out of existence by the mid-1700s. The exhibition ran from April 26 to Dec. 1, 1907. Your textile is a crossover collectible of interest to collectors of historic textiles and memorabilia as well as to those who collect souvenirs from national expositions and Worlds Fairs. After the Jamestown Exposition, the land and buildings used there were purchased by the federal government. Its now part of the Sewells Point Naval Complex. Q: I have a pump organ that belonged to my grandmother in the 1940s or earlier. The family story is that she used it in her one-room schoolhouse in Jackson County, Ohio. It still works. Its labeled Crown Organ. On the back it says, Geo. Bent, Chicago, U.S.A. I would appreciate any information you can provide. A: Crown organs and pianos were made by the George P. Bent Piano Co. The company was founded in about 1870 in Louisville, Ky. In 1881 it advertised itself as a jobber of organs and sewing machines. In 1889 the company moved to Chicago and was awarded several medals at the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1893. Sears Roebuck & Co. sold some Crown organs. Bent was bought by Winter Piano Co. in 1927. Plain pump organs sell for about $50 to $100 and up. Q: I have a figurine of a man in a plumed hat with a red beard, 7 inches tall. The mark on the bottom looks like a backward C connected to a regular letter C. Who made it? A: The mark was used by Cordey China Co., founded by Boleslaw Cybis in Trenton, N.J., in 1942. Cordey made figurines, vases, lamps and other decorative items that were sold in gift shops. It was bought by the Lightron Corp. in 1969 and made lamps under the name Schiller Cordey Co. Tip: Clocks that are wound from the back should be wound counterclockwise because thats really clockwise if youre facing the front of the clock. Never wind an old clock counterclockwise. This is more than a lamp. Hiding under the fringed lampshade is a disc phonograph.

If you got stuck after Rioja, youre not alone. Its the variety with which Americans are most familiar, but the industry has undergone a revolution, crafting a variety of wines that are gaining popularity with their quality and value prices. Spanish wine importer Jorge Ordonez recently held a tasting in Sarasota of wines from 21 producers that illustrated how far the countrys industry has come. Whats changed? We have invested a huge quantity of money in new technology, machinery and barrels as well as in the vineyards, says Loren Gil, export director of Bodegas Juan Gil. After analyzing U.S. markets, we moved quickly to a new style of wines, using new varieties grown in more districts and concentrating on making more food-friendly wines. Its almost like Spanish winemakers have begun to reinvent themselves, says Shannon Yates, tasca chef at Cru in Fort Myers. They used to be perceived as just inexpensive wines but that has changed. Jorge Ordonez has been pretty masterful about what he carries in producers and the winemakers he brings in. Quality has risen while prices remain affordable. Customers like these because with tempranillo (grapes) you can make so many different wines, says Isabel Pozo Polo, chef/owner of I M Tapas on Fourth Avenue North in Naples. In Catalua, the new wines are blends of tempranillo with cabernet sauvignon and other regional grapes. They are easy to drink and are affordable, too. Its not just the reds that got a redo. Among the whites one relative newcomer is the godello grape, dry and fragrant, from the north of Spain. But dont forget the whites from Galicia, the albarinos, they have been enjoyed there forever, says Ms. Polo, and they are great wines at a lower price. Mary Shipman, co-chef and owner of I M Tapas, is particularly fond of Fulget albarino. I really like this wine. It is refreshing, and perfect for our climate, she says. Here are some selections recommended by a variety of experts: From Isabel Pozo Polo: Castelo do Papa Godello 2007: This is a crisp dry white from the Valdeorras with some tropical fruit and a touch of acidity. On the I M Tapas list at $39. Celler Ardevol Anjoli Priorat 2004: Grenache, cabernet sauvignon and merlot aged in oak with good balance and cherry/berry notes. On the list at $85. Petalos Bierza 2007: Produced by Descendientes de Jose Palacios, this 100 percent Mencia grape wine has a rich purple color with fragrant bouquet and berries with spice flavors, much like a merlot. On the list at $59. From Mary Shipman: Fulget Albarino 2007 Rias Baixis: Produced by Adega Maior De Mendoza. This elegant 100 percent Albarino is nicely balanced with a white flowery nose and white pear and citrus flavors, fresh and fruity with a lingering finish. On the list at $50. From Loren Gil: Juan Gil 2007 Jumilla: A great value for this 100 percent Monastrell (mouvedre) grape produces a full-bodied richly flavored deep cherry red wine with great balance and finish. About $20. From Shannon Yates: Garnacha del Fuego 2008: An outstanding value from 100 percent old-vine grenache from the Calatayud region. Dark rich purple color, with balanced dark cherry and blueberry flavors and lingering finish. You can drink this one until the cows come home and not get tired of it, he says. About $10. From Mr. Vino: There were so many good wines at the Jorge Ordonez tasting it was hard to choose but these two really stood out:Torre Muga 2005 Bodegas Muga: A fine Rioja red blend from mostly tempranillo with deep dark purple color, a dense spicy mineral and blackberry flavor followed by impressive finish. About $100.Alto Moncayon Veraton 2006 Bodegas Alto Moncayo: Made from 100 percent grenache from the Campo Borja region, from older vines. Intense aromas of wild black cherry and black raspberry with an earthy tone, dense and full-flavored but ready to drink now. Very food-friendly as well. About $26.

As a rule, steakhouses dont do much for me. I resent paying big bucks for a slab of beef then paying another $8 for a potato or vegetable to accompany it. And a salad? Why extra, of course. One visit to Stoneys, however, has changed my thinking in a big way. The Bayfront Place restaurant named for owner and developer Kevin Stoneburner oozes grandeur and treats its customers like treasured guests. At the same time, it provides both value and quality. Its motto: Big steaks. Big chairs. Big wine. Im happy to report Stoneys delivers all with grace and sophistication. The royal treatment starts right at the door. Although we were dressed casually and hadnt made a reservation, the charming maitre d, Aldo Bovero, welcomed us warmly, ushered us to a roomy table for two, helped us maneuver the massive upholstered chairs and deftly tucked pillows behind our backs. He handed us menus and a substantial wine list and then gave us some time to peruse both. Like everything else here, the wine list is big, covering large swaths of Europe, the United States and South America. Prices range from $35 for a bottle of Antinori Campogrande Orvieto Classico to $7,000 for a magnum of 1989 Chateau Petrus Pomerol. We enjoyed a moderately priced bottle of 2007 Finca Flichman Malbec Reserva, a supple Argentinean red. Considering that all entrees come with a garden or Caesar salad and choice of potato, appetizers might be overkill for most diners. In the interest of research, however, we sampled the French onion soup and lobster-stuffed mushroom. The soup was a classic rendition the broth redolent of its beef base, containing lots of sweet onions, a chewy piece of bread and a thick layer of Gruyere cheese browned atop the small crock. In keeping with the high level of service, a small pair of scissors was tucked onto the plate, allowing me to easily snip just the right amount into each spoonful. The portobello mushroom had a bountiful stuffing of lobster and spinach topped with melted cheese and a delicate citrus beurre blanc. It was piled high, properly cooked (no raw mushroom cap underneath) and the flavors and textures melded beautifully. Both the garden and Caesar salads were fresh and judiciously dressed atop cold plates. Heres another way in which Stoneys caters to its clientele: Not everyone will want beef, even though they are dining at a steakhouse. (Within the past year I dined at one local steakhouse, which will remain nameless, in which a server said to my fish-eating companions, Why did you bother to come to a steakhouse if youre going to eat fish?) Some people dont eat beef, or simply are in the mood for fish, particularly when in a region in which its plentiful. Stoneys had a nightly fish special of grouper Provencal over Parmesan risotto, and it was a dish worthy of that title. A generous portion of grouper sat on a mound of cheesy risotto, with a layer of creamy tomato sauce on top and a cheesecloth-enrobed lemon wedge on the side. The fish was moist, well seasoned and paired nicely with the sauce and risotto. Special, indeed. Prime rib, which ranges from $24 to $38, is carved at the table. Mr. Bovero did the honors, wheeling the silvertopped cart to the side of our table and presenting me with an end cut, as requested. While this cut is more thoroughly cooked than interior pieces, it also bears the most seasoning and this one was no exception. The beefs rich flavor was complemented by the seasonings in which it had roasted for hours. Our server supplied dollops of creamy horseradish sauce and some extra horseradish, as well as butter for a large baked potato (other choices include sweet potato or cheddar mashed). The tableside treatment continued when we ordered cherries jubilee for dessert. Once again, Mr. Bovero answered the call, wheeling over a cart designed specifically for creating flambed dishes. He expertly melted the butter and sugar, then added the cherries and, finally, some brandy, setting it alight and sending flames high above our heads. The warm cherry concoction was delicious, made even more so by a generous portion of vanilla ice cream over which it was poured.The food at Stoneys would be enough to warrant a visit, but the service is equally impressive. The staff appears to be a well-oiled machine, working cooperatively and, in fact, with what appeared to be enjoyment. I saw servers talking with and shaking hands with managers as they came on duty for the evening. They kept vigilant watch on their tables and were knowledgeable about the menu. After entrees were served, a manager stopped by each table to make sure all was proceeding well. And then there was Mr. Bovero, whose Old World charm, broad array of skills and evident passion for his work elevated this meal to one Ive found myself talking about regularly as an example of what fine dining should be. Stoneys is most assuredly a cut above the steakhouse herd.
