NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 6, 2010 NEWS A3 John Donne, a 17th-century English poet and revered dean at St. Pauls Cathedral in London, wrote amorous and erotic poems in his youth, which suggests to me that it wasnt wasted. Later, he delivered luminous sermons from the pulpit that still thunder down the centuries and echo across cultures from equatorial Africa and the Asian east to the South, Central and North American west. He told the truth, and it doesnt take just an Englishman to recognize it. No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main, he once said. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.In his world, men, women and children typically came and went more rapidly than in our world. Bells the sound of bells made by masters of their music filled the daily lives of nearly everyone, because nearly everyone lived within their sound, from birth to death. They were an English affect, a European affect that rang out notices of beginnings and endings, of weddings and funerals, of special days and special hours of a day, all the time.In America, bells existed here and there only for a while. Now mostly theyve faded into silence, sometimes carrying away with them that peculiar notion Donne took the liberty of branding into our psychic hides the notion that we dont walk alone. Americans, however, seem to walk alone whenever we damn well please, and sometimes when we dont. We have a capacity for solitude, sorrow, grief, despair, silent anguish and singly-borne loneliness that appears as boundless as our capacity for grinning at nearly everything, and making light of the bleeding. Im not averse to grinning or solitude or stoicism. But all of it makes me wonder: What would have happened if wed never let the bells go? What if wed let them ring our common humanity into our hearts and minds from matins to vespers from morning to evening prayers every day, wherever we presumed to call ourselves family or community or clan or tribe or church? Would she then have killed herself only days after her 57th birthday, when so much seemingly remained for her to celebrate especially a family who loved her unreservedly? The mere act of raising that question is probably an affect on my part, just as the bells themselves were affects (lovely ones, in my opinion) of Western culture. What we know now about people who remove themselves from the world suddenly or at least what I know is that they did their living in a place beyond reason. They did their living in anguish, in pain so extreme that mere words, mere habitual treatment for depression, mere pharmaceutical or psychological interventions, couldnt alter their determination to quit the world sooner rather than later. In harder and less palatable terms, perhaps, it comes down to this: Love contrary to sentimental conviction may not be enough. It may not conquer all, if all includes the profound anguish that leads to suicide. Self-doubt is an unforgiving tyrant, of course. We wonder: Perhaps love conquers all if its applied precisely and correctly, at the right time and place, in the right way, with the right gravity and force and conviction. Right l ove, lets call it. All of us who loved her once or always once in my case, and always in the case of her heartbroken family wonder: Wasnt mine the right love? Could I have loved more or differently, and thus saved her? A simpler form of the same question: Is it my fault? Im repeating what I believe, and what a friend of mine told me on the telephone last night: One must respect her decision. Thats not the traditional Western notion, which judges suicide as a sin. It also ignores the traditional inclination to view it as a kind of cowardice. Instead, my friend insists that no one can determine if the decision was right or wrong, because no one can understand how large the burden was that she had to carry, or why she finally decided it wasnt worth carrying anymore. We can only respect her decision and admit how much it has hurt us. You have to take care of yourself, he said, speaking from experience, and for any who have suffered such an inexplicable, incomprehensible loss. One thing is certain: She loved her family deeply, steadfastly and always, as hard as she was able. That isnt in dispute by me or them. So her decision to surrender certainly irrational and misguided, as most decisions made in pain are must not have been part of her l ove, only her suffering. How can we, who loved her, therefore judge it? But now this for us this eternal, ringing silence. This absence of bells. When we were young, she and I lived together, in London. We sat in St. Pauls one day beneath Christopher Wrens great dome that survived the Nazis and everything else, and quietly read out John Donnes sermon. We heard bells all the time in those days, literally. We even printed a book of poems about bells by hand, on an Albion printing press once owned by William Morris, another English poet and artisan. I still have it. We believed every word that Donne had said in his most famous sermon, and I believe it more than ever, now now that I realize all of us are so deeply diminished by her loss. Which is why I look to something else Donne once wrote. I no longer believe, but I can still hope: Death be not proud, thou some have called thee mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so.

OPINION Combat operations in Iraq are over, if you believe President Barack Obamas rhetoric. But torture in Iraqs prisons, first exposed during the Abu Ghraib scandal, is thriving, increasingly distant from any scrutiny or accountability. After arresting tens of thousands of Iraqis, often without charge, and holding many for years without trial, the United States has handed over control of Iraqi prisons, and 10,000 prisoners, to the Iraqi government. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. After landing in London late Saturday night, we traveled to the small suburb of Kilburn to speak with Rabiha al-Qassab, an Iraqi refugee who was granted political asylum in Britain after her brother was executed by Saddam Hussein. Her husband, 68-year-old Ramze Shihab Ahmed, was a general in the Iraqi army under Saddam, fought in the Iran-Iraq War and was part of a failed plot to overthrow the Iraqi dictator. The couple was living peacefully for years in London, until September 2009. It was then that Ramze Ahmed learned his son, Omar, had been arrested in Mosul, Iraq. Ahmed returned to Iraq to find him and was arrested himself. For months, Rabiha didnt know what had become of her husband. Then, on March 28, her cell phone rang. I dont know the voice, she told me. I said, Who are you? He said he is very sick ... he said, Me, Ramze, Ramze. Call embassy. And they took the mobile, and they stop talking. Ramze Ahmed was being held in a secret prison at the old Muthanna Airport in Baghdad. A recent report from Amnesty International, titled New Order, Same Abuses, describes Muthanna as one of the harshest prisons in Iraq, the scene of extensive torture and under the control of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. As Rabiha showed me family photos, a piece of paper with English and Arabic words slipped out. Rabiha explained that in order to describe in English what happened to her husband, she had to consult a dictionary, since she had never used several of the English words: Rape. Stick. Torture. She wept as she described his account of being sodomized with a stick, suffocated repeatedly with plastic bags placed over his head, and shocked with electricity. Not surprisingly, as detailed in the Amnesty report, the Iraqi government said that Ramze Shihab Ahmed had confessed to links to al-Qaida in Iraq. In a January 2010 press conference organized by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, videotapes were played showing nine others confessing to crimes, including Ahmeds son, Omar, who, showing signs of beatings, confessed to the killing of several Christians in Mosul and the detonation of a bomb in a village near Mosul. Malcolm Smart, director of Amnesty Internationals Middle East and North Africa program, told me in London, theres a culture of abuse (in Iraq) that has taken root. It was certainly there during the days of Saddam Hussein, but what we wanted to see from 2003 was a turning of the page, and that hasnt happened. So we see secret prisons, people being tortured and illtreated, being forced to make confessions ... the perpetrators are not being held to account. Theyre not being identified. After that brief, interrupted phone call that Rabiha received from her husband, she did call the British government, and its embassy in Iraq tracked Ahmed down in al-Rusafa prison in Baghdad. Normally with a cane, they found him in a wheelchair. Rabiha has a photo of him taken by the British representative. Amnesty reports that there are an estimated 30,000 prisoners in Iraq (200 remaining under U.S. control). The condition and treatment of the Iraqi prisoners is considered by the U.S. to be, Smart says, an Iraqi issue. But with the U.S. continuing to pour billions of dollars into its ongoing military presence there, and to fund the Iraqi government, the treatment of prisoners is clearly a U.S. issue as well. Amnesty has launched a grassroots campaign to spur further action to secure Ahmeds release. Meanwhile, Rabiha al-Qassab, isolated and alone in north London, spends time feeding the ducks in a local park, which her husband used to do. She told me: I talk with the ducks. I say, You remember the man who gave you the food? He is in a prison. Ask God to help him. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 800 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier, recently released in paperback and now a New York Times best seller.Torture in Iraq continues, unabatedWilliam Voegeli wrote a book about the ever-growing welfare state in the United States and throughout the Western world titled Never Enough. In the tea party, we hear the countervailing cry, Enough! Everywhere its been established, the welfare state has proven itself perpetually self-aggrandizing. Voegeli writes, The American trend from 1940 to 2007 steady growth of both the economy and the portion of the economy devoted to the welfare state is evident in 12 other modern, prosperous democracies from 1980 to 2003. The tea party bids to stand athwart this long-standing, seemingly inexorable trend. Even Ronald Reagan, whose rhetoric and intentions were forthrightly against big government, only managed to slow welfare-state spending to a rate of 0.9 percent annually over eight years a stupendous accomplishment in the context of its otherwise routinely robust growth. To achieve more than this will require a massive Republican sweep in the fall, followed up by a win in 2012. It will take masterly feats of public persuasion, coupled with countless victories in budgetary hand-to-hand combat all sustained over time. Liberal defenders of the status quo will have history, inertia and proven scare tactics on their side. But, as Barack Obama likes to say, make no mistake: The rise of the tea party puts the fundamental direction of American government in play in a way it hasnt been since perhaps 1981. It wasnt supposed to be this way after Mr. Obamas election. The financial crisis, though, didnt discredit the free market so much as the government policies that stoked the housing bubble and bailed out the banks and the auto companies. The muchanticipated crisis of capitalism quickly became an impending crisis of government debt, as Washington leveraged itself to the hilt in an era of painful private deleveraging.With entitlements on an already unsustainable course, Mr. Obama added a new one in his health-care program, and sold it with every ounce of hubris and dishonesty he could muster. If tea partiers had a plant in the White House on a Leninist mission to make things worse before they can improve, they couldnt have done much better than the Man from Hope and Change.Speaker Nancy Pelosi surely knew shed lose some seats by insisting on passage of the health-care law, but she couldnt have known shed risk displacing the tectonic plates of American politics. If theres going to be a U-turn in American government, the rise of the tea-party movement is its necessary precondition. In retrospect, if $1 trillion deficits and an increase in government spending from 20 percent to 25 percent of GDP didnt bring people out into the streets, it would have been lights out for limited-government conservatism. Its become a trope that tea-party candidates dont have an agenda. Thats not quite fair. Were in favor of a lot of things and were against mighty few, Lyndon Johnson said in 1964, on the cusp of the Great Society. Take his statement and turn it on its head, and you have the thrust of the tea-party agenda. Or, in a word: Enough.

Wherever the wild things are, thats where you can expect to find Grace and John Slaby. The couple are the founders and directors of the Kowiachobee Animal Preserve, a nonprofit facility in Golden Gate Estates where they care for injured, homeless or otherwise needy animals of all kinds. And when they say all kinds, theyre not kidding. Among the many creatures residing in the Kowiachobee compound that adjoins the Slaby residence are Florida panthers, a South American jaguar, an Asian leopard, an African tortoise, a green iguana and an ostrich as well as a bevy of farm animals that visitors are invited to feed and pet.John Slaby and his wife share a deep passion for animals, which ultimately led to their founding of Kowiachobee (which means big cat in the native Seminole language). The two met while working at the Menagerie Foundation, a big cat sanctuary in Naples that has since closed. Grace was working with the panthers and I was a volunteer, John says, noting that neither of them had originally planned for animal-related careers.Im an electrician by trade and my wife is a registered nurse, he says. But we both have a fascination for animals, and caring for them is something that seems to come naturally to both of us. Because the Kowiachobee Animal Preserve is in a residential area, safety is of paramount importance. We have multiple layers of fences and specifically designed enclosures, especially for the big cats, John NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 6, 2010 15 MINUTES Its a wild, wild world for the Slaby familyBY PAMELA V. KROL_________________________Special to Florida Weekly says. And the nine-year-old facility receives a state safety inspection twice each year. In addition to caring for animals, another major goal of the Kowiachobee facility is outreach and education. The Slabys open the preserve to visitors to allow them to see, touch and learn about animals they otherwise most likely would never encounter face-to-face. Habitat and animal conservation are key themes, as well as responsible pet ownership and the hazards of releasing non-indigenous pets in to the wild a dangerous practice which, among other things, has resulted in a large population of Burmese pythons and other non-native species in the Everglades. Education is a major component of what we do, says John, adding most of Kowiachobees lessons are geared to elementary-aged children. He says the preserve is visited by roughly 200 to 300 people each year including school, scout and other kids groups as well as by interested locals and tourists. The Slabys also provide traveling exhibitions. Were often invited to bring animals to the local schools, John says. Going in to the schools or having school children come to the preserve to visit is very rewarding. Very often we get thank-you letters from the kids that weve visited, and I am always surprised and thrilled to see how much they have learned and retained. It makes us feel good to know that we are having an impact.If we can help kids to better understand the natural world and the results of their actions on wildlife and on the environment, then we feel we have made a positive and lasting difference in the community. Though neither Grace nor John is originally from Florida hes from Chicago and Grace is from New Jersey theyve come to think of Naples as home and of COURTESY PHOTOSFar left: Ashlie Slaby and Blaze, a young miniature horse Center: Grace with Majesty, a Percheron draft horse Left: John holding a chocolate skunkthemselves as natives. Their 14-year-old daughter, Ashlie, also loves the area and often helps out at the preserve. She has chores that are very different from what most 14-year-old kids do around the house, John laughs. She shares our love of animals and enjoys the fact that we can all spend time together working as a family.Running the preserve is expensive, and the Slabys rely on donations and contributions from businesses and private individuals to keep things going. We believe that were providing the public with a valuable resource and are pleased and grateful for the support we receive, John says. We feel fortunate that we can do something that we enjoy and believe in every day. Were very lucky.As are the animals in their care and the people who encounter them through a trip to the preserve or a visit from the Slabys. Visits to the Kowiachobee Animal Preserve are by appointment only and can be arranged via e-mail at kap.naples@gmail. com or by calling 253-7826 or 253-7828.

PAGE 10 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 6, 2010 in her breast, her husbands first wife had died of breast cancer, and her insurance had expired creating a tar pit of emotional stress that so far had left her too frightened even to extract herself and get a mammogram. That fear could kill her if she continued to surrender to it, Dr. Peterson surmises. Although one in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in their lives, and the best way to survive it is universally acknowledged as early detection, about 40,000 will die of breast cancer this year, most of them needlessly, Dr. Peterson believes. In Southwest Florida alone, the mortality rate will likely number about 200, just as it did last year, according to figures provided by Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Southwest Florida, one of the most prominent and comprehensive nonprofit organizations established to fight the disease. Most of those mothers, daughters, sisters and grandmothers could be saved if their tumors were detected in time although that isnt as easy as it sounds. Now widely established, the five-year-old digital mammography is significantly more sensitive than onceupon-a-time breast inspections, but when women dont check themselves periodically and seek annual mammograms, problems can occur. I still believe that if it wasnt for digital, my tumor wouldnt have been diagnosed for another year, says Fern Dennis, the system director of ambulatory operations at the outpatient center of Lee Memorial Health Systems new single-campus cancer center, The Sanctuary, in Fort Myers. Ms. Dennis was diagnosed with the disease last year and underwent a double mastectomy. If you have fibrous tissue in your breasts, and a lot of women do especially as they get older, it can hide things, she says. That tumor may have been in me for years before I found it.The new technologyWhat now distinguishes Southwest Florida from any other region in the nation for oncology and breast care are a handful of cutting-edge machines, three of them known as TruBeam and manufactured by Varian, a California company. Only here, of all places in the nation, are there three of these within 50 miles of each other, says Fred Fangman, the director of Premier Radiation Oncology Care Centers, which has one of the TruBeam machines at its new office in Fort Myers. 21st Century Oncology has the other two machines one of them in the practices Naples office and the other in Fort Myers at The Sanctuary. They run in the $5 million to $6 million range, notes Sharon McDonald, vice president of oncology at The Sanctuary. We used to have to do radiation only in two dimensions. Now its in three dimensions. Its much, much faster, which is easier on the patient, and there is no margin for error. Eric Lee, director of clinical physics for 21st Century Oncology, stood in a large and nearly silent room empty of everything but the machine itself last week, completing the final calibrations required to put it into operation beginning this week. TruBeam relies on computer algorithms along with precise mechanical engineering. It weighs many tons, and it will rotate to within a millimeter of a required point, he explained, moving the machine silently with the touch of a button. So we can take plain radiographs and capture exit radiation and see the patient in one treatment position from all (angles) and in all dimensions. At once, this machine can do a variety of tasks PT or CT scans among them then attenuate or modulate the beam not only to radiate the tumor, but to radiate the center of the tumor in such a way that the rest of it is obliterated, but without damaging any surrounding tissue, Mr. Lee says. The fact that patients often elderly or in pain or simply uncomfortable will not have to lie utterly still for long periods of time, or move and twitch, thus risking damage to healthy tissues or inaccurate readings, could make a world of difference to some. Now, treatment might take about 90 seconds. The new radiation therapy is guided by this acronym: IGRT, explains Ms. McDonald. Imagine Guided Radiation Therapy. Unfortunately, conditions were not always so favorable for patients. I was in radiation back when it caused a lot of damage to people, because it wasnt precise, recalls Mr. Fangman, who spent the first 15 years of his career as a radiation therapist. But I love to be in this industry now, because Ive seen it turn around, and Ive seen the good that radiation can do. And not only radiation, but the combined effects of various treatments for the many breast cancer patients who struggle with the disease. Here we have a team of people to do the diagnosis quickly within 24 to 48 hours, even if tissue has to be withdrawn (in a biopsy), says The Sanctuarys Ms. Dennis. A year ago, a diagnosis may have taken a month. Now its a week. Her own experience was one of the first in the new model, and the discovery of a tumor in one breast happened by chance. The facility was just gearing up, and doctors were testing the equipment on volunteers. Ms. Dennis agreed to let them try the equipment on her because it was time for her annual mammogram. They used digital mammography on me, and the radiologist the same day did an ultrasound, and it showed the mass. Next day, they did a biopsy, all of it right here, she recalls. (Now only a year later things have changed for the better. With brand new technology, the biopsy, if necessary, could be done simultaneously with an MRI, for example.) The biopsy tissue went to the lab, and came back showing a ductal carcinoma, she says. She opted for surgery, not radiation or chemotherapy, and she had to endure two operations to save the breast. But in neither case did the borders come out clean, she explains. After some soul searching and a clear-eyed recognition of what other factors might affect her (both her mother and grandmother had suffered breast cancer), she decided not to remove one breast, but both. I am now so glad I did that, she admits. It was traumatic at the time, however. The physical pain was nothing, Ms. Dennis says. The mental anguish was terrible. Even though you know this could happen to you, when it does it just takes your breath away. Now, digital mammography (Lee Health Systems has five of the $500,000 machines) combined with ultrasound is the standard in identifying tumors long before they become life threatening. But even a year ago when Ms. Dennis had to face breast cancer, she couldnt avail herself of todays technology. Along with TruBeam, The Sanctuary also has a Vanguard-manufactured machine called Sentinelle, designed specifically for care of breasts (and surrounding tissue such as lymph nodes in armpits) with MRI treatments. So the normal process is this, Ms. Dennis explains. First you do a breast mammogram, then you do a breast ultrasound, then a breast MRI. The Sentinelle is for the breast MRI, and you can also do a biopsy under the MRI with it. Another technology new to the country and the region that will significantly alter the sophistication of treatment is called elasticity, used in conjunction with the ultrasound, explains Dr. Rie Aihara, executive director of regional breast care at 21st Century Oncologys Sanctuary location. We can catch things at an earlier stage now, whether a mass or calcification, but we cant always tell if its a cancer, she explains. Lets say you have a non-palpable mass you can see on the ultrasound. Now, elasticity will allow you to compare the stiffness of this region to surrounding tissue. Almost always, malignant tumors are very solid and firm, much firmer than surrounding tissue, so this can come up with a color map comparing the density of tissues. And some studies suggest that its almost the equivalent of a tissue biopsy. But the tissue biopsy remains the gold standard of care, she adds and if it has to be done, it has to be done, even though 80 to 90 percent of the time, the results will prove negative. Better that than risking a life by ignoring a problem, she concludesChanging care modelsIn Southwest Florida, care and especially detection capabilities are better than ever before. Patients have an unprecedented range of treatment options that reflect not only the most advanced technology in the nation or the world, but a new level of competition among caregivers here. The logistics of care in the region now stands at a crossroads, a fact that will likely affect not only breast cancer patients but many other cancer patients, as well. On the one hand, Lee Memorial Health Systems new cancer campus offers an evolving and tidy version of one-stop shopping. In the case of breast cancer, every aspect of outpatient care from initial mammogram to radiation and chemotherapy exists on site. Fashioned loosely after much larger treatment centers such as Moffitt Cancer Center, M.D. Anderson or Memorial Sloan-Kettering, the Sanctuary brings together doctors who represent the various disciplines required to treat a single diagnosis of breast cancer. As such, its aimed at drawing patients from at least five counties on the Southwest coast, among them Collier, Lee and Charlotte where about 1.3 million people live. Along with 21st Century Oncology, were trying to make this a destination site, Ms. McDonald says. Ms. McDonald is given significant credit by her colleagues for turning the idea of a destination site into a reality: bricks, mortar, glass, steel, a generously cultivated meditation garden (the gift of philanthropist Berne Davis and her late husband, Sidney Davis), a boutique shop designed to outfit and adorn cancer patients with everything from prostheses to special undergarments and jewelry, and multi-milliondollar imaging machines than can simultaneously perform tissue biopsies or radiate tumors. From a physicians standpoint, a destination place might not be as important because physicians dont have to be in one place to communicate, says Dr. Aihara. But if you look at it from the patients standpoint, they still have to travel for care. So having everything, including the various doctors they need in one place, makes it easier, and expedites care. On the other hand, doctors in offsite private practices can communicate at unprecedented speeds, as if they shared the same physical treatment space, and they offer many patients essential travel options along with extremely attentive care, they say. In some cases they are also begin-BEATINGFrom page 1 To learn about nancial help getting breast care in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties, to inquire about the nature of care and providers, or to offer aid or time to help those with breast cancer, contact any of the following: >> Susan G.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 6, 2010 NEWS A11 ning to use the same new technology still less than a month old to treat their patients by working with care organizations that have invested in them. We can give you the best technology in the world, along with the most caring (medical attention), says Fred Fangman, executive director of Naples-based Premier Radiation Oncology, which has a new office in Fort Myers. In the eyes of Dr. Peterson, a dedicated care center such as The Sanctuary which she nonetheless takes pains to praise only has value to some. When you look at the demographics of patients from south to north, a dedicated center might not serve all their needs very well. Are you going to force women (living from east or north Lee County to Charlotte County) to drive to South Fort Myers whenever they need something? And the destination sites may not be as efficient as they appear in theory, she adds. In our practice, we arent forcing patients into a mecca Moffit or a mecca Anderson where they might sit for 10 hours. And how do you plan for the patient that will need a surgeon at that time, when she comes in, or plan for a person to sit with an ultrasound machine and keep it open for the next person who needs it? So how efficient is this? It sounds really cool, and everybody could come and it can put a name on the community. But what about the Spanish woman in Lehigh or Immokalee who cant make it to the mecca, and what about the mother or grandmother who has kids and grandkids and cant bring them with her there?Competition and accessWhat competition among caregivers means remains uncertain, although Mr. Fangman judges it helpful to those in need. Competition is good, he insists. Good for the community. If theres not competition in the area then there is no incentive for cancer centers to have the best technology because theres no added reimbursement for that. You add a competitor in the same area with superior technology, and in order for other cancer centers to compete, they must upgrade. When you do that, the patient wins. Because regardless of where the patient goes, they will get topnotch technology. The effects of this top-notch technology or changing treatment models in the business of care are too new to judge. But one thing is certain about care programs, say doctors and administrators: Fear, either of treatment itself or the economic burdens treatment might impose on a patient or a family, is needless. There is always a way to pay for mammograms we will find a way, insists Miriam Ross, the executive director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Southwest Florida. And not just mammograms, but any treatment required. We (fund) mammograms, biopsies, surgical lumpectomies, mastectomies one patient might cost us $150 and another might cost us $20,000 or more, says Joetta Abbazio, president of Bosom Buddies, a nonprofit organization that helps uninsured or underinsured breast cancer patients in Collier County and Bonita Springs. We work with all Lee hospitals with anesthesiologists, oncologists, radiologists and therapists, and pathologists, as well as surgeons. We call them our partners in health, and theyve all agreed to do services for us at drastically reduced rates, explains Janet Darnell, executive director of the non-profit Partners for Breast Cancer Care in Lee. Like Bosom Buddies or Partners for Breast Cancer Care and like the local government health office in Charlotte County Komen uses grants, charitable donations and the seemingly endless pro-bono compassion of the medical communities in the region to open doors for all patients. As part of that unarguably compassionate system, Dr. Peterson responded both bluntly and with kindness to the troubled and frightened woman she encountered last week. I told her, Dont let excuses stop you. And I gave her my number, she admits.Reaching outNew technology, old technology and big-hearted bedside manners cant help anybody, however, unless women (and the small percentage of men who fall victim to breast cancer, maybe 1 percent of all patients, says Dr. Aihara) can gain easy access to care. Need is prominent everywhere, especially in the aftermath of recession, Ms. Darnell says. In 2009 we screened 2,258 people, and we helped 1,451, she says (patients have to meet various guidelines for low income and residency to qualify for help). But whats interesting is that in 2007 and 2008, she adds, we helped 626 people and only about twice that number came in and applied. So its doubled. I think the economy helped. Theyre out of work, losing their homes. And you can bet that if that many people seek help so they can get standard breast care, a lot more are avoiding help because theyre either too proud to ask for it, or they dont know its available for those who cannot pay. That will cost lives. But state-of-the-art help continues to be offered to everybody, even when its not profitable to the providers. Mr. Fangman says that the cost of the new TruBeam machines is probably too high to allow cancer centers to make much money on them. But access to the technology is there because it should be there, he adds. For people who cannot get to a cancer center or doctors office, Radiology Regional Centers offers mobile mammography. That it sometimes might not be cost effective doesnt matter to many caregivers. We started questioning patients and asking, How can we help you with health care? One is finances, but another is access, says Dr. Peterson. In the downturn, some people dont have their cars anymore. Yes, theres public transportation, but people dont have access to health care as much, anymore. And its such an easy exam. With digital mammography, images are so pristine, that we think we can put that on the van and do (a world of good). Many of the women who run organizations such as Bosom Buddies and Partners for Breast Cancer Care, among others, are cancer survivors themselves. They understand the fear and difficulty women face when diagnosed with the disease. It probably makes a huge difference in how much and how far the medical community as a whole reaches out to all women here. Were all breast cancer survivors, says Joetta Abbazio, whose greatest hope, she says, is that her nieces and grandnieces will never have to face what she has faced (Ms. Abbazio is an 18-year survivor). Since she started Bosom Buddies 17 years ago, its dispensed about $3 million in help to less fortunate women. That kind of effort has occurred up and down the coast and still its not enough, many believe. But there is cause for hope in the long term. Im quite optimistic. Even if you look at the last five years, theres been a tremendous increase in survival because of early detection as well as treatment, says Dr. Aihara. Were getting so much research, not only with tumor cells but in terms of how and why it metastasizes and we know its not straightforward. So it will help us, and that will lead to increases in survival. Thats different from prevention. I dont think were going to reach the era of prevention. We dont know why it happens, whether cells are genetically acquired versus environmentally acquired its probably multifactorial. But better treatments will increase in the next 20 or 30 years. Especially in Southwest Florida. COURTESY PHOTOThe Mobile Mammography unit COURTESY PHOTOJoetta Abbazio, an 18-year survivor, founded Bosom Buddies in Naples.

PAGE 12 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 6, 2010 Theres perhaps no better time for Beth Freitas and Meg Crandall to celebrate than Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Fifteen years ago, when the identical twins were 48 years old, Beth was diagnosed with breast cancer after discovering a lump. Prompted by her twins diagnosis, Meg had a mammogram and learned that she, too, had the disease. (Their two younger sisters also had their first mammograms, which showed no signs of cancer. There was no family history of the disease.) Beth had discovered the lump in her breast in November 1995 and had a mastectomy the following month. Three months later, in March 1996, Meg had her mastectomy. Today, both twins are cancer-free. Their sisters have remained cancer-free and are participating in a national, long-term sister study for siblings of breast cancer patients. Meg and Beth grew up spending summers on the waters of Long Island, N.Y. When they were in their early 30s they started running for exercise and never stopped. To date, the part-time residents of North Naples have completed more than 100 marathons. They believe being in strong physical shape helped them with their recovery from breast cancer. At six week post-op, I ran a marathon, says Beth. I did the Boston Marathon six weeks after my mastectomy, says Meg. Its amazing, but you find the strength you didnt know you had. That strength has been inspirational to many women and their families. The twins have used their illness and recovery to help others through marathons and speaking engagements. Weve won our battles, but the war is not over until theres a cure, Beth says. Lack of family history doesnt mean youre safe from breast cancer, she adds. Take care of yourself, she stresses. Get yearly physicals, do breast selfexams and get your diagnostic tests. The twins credit the right combination of family, friends and physicians for their successful fight(s) against breast cancer. That winning combination included a buddy to accompany each of them to every doctor appointment they had during the process of diagnosis and treatment. Once you hear the word cancer, your mind shuts off and youll need someone to ask those important questions, Beth explains. Something else they urge patients to do: Tell people whats going on, Beth says, adding, Especially tell other women. We need to share the experience. When a woman with breast cancer shares her experience, other women are inspired to have mammograms, do self-exams and take better care of themselves. A diagnosis of cancer involves many personal decisions, and sharing information can help, Meg says. Once you win the breast cancer lottery ticket, you want to better your chances for survival, she says. Nobody tells you all the practical stuff, so you need to share your information and also hear from and about others who have fought or are fighting the disease.Sharing for strengthAt, the website for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, theres a place for women to share their breast cancer stories. The introduction to the section reads: One single story can inspire, teach and provide hope for millions of women and men across the globe. And whether its a story of survivorship, or information about innovative research or complementary treatments, the power of someones words can have an impact greater than you would ever imagined. The following are excerpts from individual stories: I remember as if it were yesterday, my mom sitting at the kitchen table with me and nonchalantly saying, Pam, I found this small lump in my breast. Immediately the tears began to flow from my eyes. My emotions ranged from sad to scared to angry to extremely angry. Pamela Townsend Once I felt like I knew everything that was going on, and I had some type of control of my body, I started to feel better. I went into the surgery with a smile on my face. It was the day I would become a survivor. Cecilia Sisneros Hope keeps us going! Its been 24 years since my first breast cancer diagnosis and nine years since my second breast cancer and Stage 4 bone cancer diagnosis, and I am happy to still be a survivor! Phyllis Longman Cancer is not prejudiced. It doesnt care how old or how young you are, how rich or poor, what color your skin is or whether you are male or female. It will strike anyone at anytime. I am the first in my family to have breast cancer, but now my daughter is at greater risk. She is my reason for fighting for a cure. Jackie DillardEarly detection is keyThe American Cancer Society suggests the following recommendations for early detection of breast cancer: Women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every year, even if they are in good health. Although mammammograms can miss some cancers, the ACS stresses they remain a very effective way to find breast cancer. Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam as part of a regular exam by a health expert, preferably every three years. After age 40, women should have a breast exam by a health expert every year. Women in their 20s should do regular breast self-exams and report any changes in how their breasts look or feel to a doctor or nurse right away. Naples twins outpace cancer, stay on track togetherBY KELLY MERRITTSpecial to Florida Weekly Once you hear the word cancer, your mind shuts off and youll need someone to ask those important questions. Beth FreitasCOURTESY PHOTOTwin sisters Beth Freitas, left, and Meg Crandall, basking in the glow of a three-day, 60-mile walk for breast cancer, circa 2001. >> Janet Darnell, executive director of Partners for Breast Cancer Care, a Lee County-based nonpro t:To qualify for help with us, patients have to have a Social Security number. They have to live in Lee County full time for at least one year. They have to have a Lee photo ID. And they have to have a doctor following their care, so they come to us with a prescription for a mammogram or ultrasound. Their income can be up to and including 200 percent of the poverty level. So if youre a single person, you can have an income of up to $21,000 or a single mom with one child, $29,000. For a family of three a married couple with a child, for example you can earn up to $36,000. For a family of four, its $44,000. >> Dr. Mary Kay Peterson, a community activist and radiologist at Radiology Regional Centers:Insurance companies (in several states) were not paying for health care for these young women. So here we made all these great strides for the last 50 years, but seeing women backing away in part from fear of mammograms and in part because of economics is really discouraging. And then we have the U.S. Preventative Health Care Task Force saying, By the way, you dont have to get a mammogram at 40 or do your own exam, which is completely wrong in my opinion. So things arent ideal. But the women in the community have access to care, not only with funds, but they also have access to mental and emotional support with the American Cancer Society. Its important to know that. A woman may be well dressed, well spoken, extremely well read, but afraid. Its not just money, its not just economics, its not just not having a car it could be your own fear that could hurt you. >> Fred Fangman, executive director of Premier Radiation Oncology Care Centers in Naples, Bonita Springs and Fort Myers:Were the rst (along with Lee Memorial Health System) in Southwest Florida to offer the new technology called TruBeam, a machine manufactured by Varian, the world leader in cancer radiation equipment. Its been about 20 years in development. This is the rst time theyve had a fully integrated therapeutic machine with imaging capabilities on top of treatment capabilities, that thinks faster. It images the patient with pinpoint accuracy. When everything is positioned correctly, radiation comes on and radiates cells. We were the second machine up and running in the state. Only four have been installed. >> Joetta Abbazio, president of Bosom Buddies, a nonpro t organization that helps the uninsured or underinsured in Collier County and Bonita Springs:I have made and lost so many good friends. The one that really touched me the most was a young girl I think of her as a young girl although she was 37 who became like my adopted daughter. She was from the Philippines, her family was here, and she was a nurse at what was then called Cleveland Clinic. She had breast cancer for four years, and she died two years ago her name was Carmella Asanion. People can imagine what its like, but you dont really know unless youve had this. We try to make it easier for people going through this. Weve been there ourselves, its a drastic diagnosis to get. But what I like to tell the girls is this: Breast cancer is a temporary inconvenience. You can get over it. >> Dr. Rie Aihara, medical director of regional breast care, part of the Regional Cancer Center of Lee Memorial Health System at The Sanctuary:The key points for women to remember are these: One, self-awareness. Yes, we have all these new technologies, but unless you go get these mammographies, they cant help you. So remind a friend, get a screening awareness is key. And for people who have previous breast cancers or genetic predispositions, they need to be surveyed a lot more closely than the general public. Second, therapy is becoming more individualized. Talk to people who went through it, but keep in mind that just because a friend did it, it may not be the same for you. Women need to understand that therapy is changing. Be aware of comparing your plan to other peoples. beating breast cancerFANGMAN DARNELL PETERSON AIHARA

We have so many good things happening at NCH that sometimes its hard to keep up. Let me highlight just two of them. First, we celebrate our rehab facility with great pride during National Rehabilitation Week. We treat more than 1,000 patients yearly in our 60-bed, 5 South Rehab Unit. Many of these patients are recovering from acute injury such as stroke or trauma; others suffer chronic debilitating conditions and are eager to regain their productive lives. Our team has continued its 21-year tradition of full accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, whose examiners validated our services as of the highest quality. Approximately 18 percent of rehab patients have had a stroke and require an intensive program to regain mobility, self-care skills and the ability to communicate. These types of conditions not only affect the patient, but also the family, says Heather Baker, administrative director of the Comprehensive Rehabilitation Center. Its important when choosing a rehab provider that the family learns about the outcomes of services provided, she says, adding stroke patients served at NCH have a higher functional gain, and the percentage of patients returning home is greater than the national average. One special part of our rehab celebration was Just Desserts, on Sept. 28, when we recognized several of the many who have made spectacular rehab recoveries, including: Rob C., a young stroke victim who came to our 5 South Rehab Unit requiring total assistance. He was unable to swallow, and he communicated by pointing to a picture board. He left the unit able to drive a power chair and to get by with minimal assistance. He has a great and supportive family, who along with the rehab team laughed a lot and cried a lot throughout his stay with us. Geri S., a man of few words but very talkative eyebrows, according to therapist Sally Tillotson. Geri suffered a stroke after open-heart surgery but was determined and ambitious. He even had a loyal and caring ex-wife who wouldnt let him get away with a thing, according to one of his therapists. Ian B., who was determined to recover from day one. Sandy Hutchinson and Deb Pignatiello said he was like a sponge wanting homework to do back in his room and was a huge cheerleader for his fellow patients. Ian even had a fellow musician entertain everyone at happy hour, while Ian danced. Another thing we celebrate this week is Chief Nursing Officer Michele Thoman, who recently conducted her third set of forums introducing the new nursing Internet website on our internal site, Gerald McGinnis, our Cerner R.N. colleague, displayed upcoming changes in documentation, spurred by suggestions from PowerChart users and the Shared Governance Information Technology team. We will soon migrate to central monitoring, where all medical surgical beds on both campuses will have cardiac monitors in one location. We will add 801 intravenous smart pumps, which nurses and doctors control remotely, to download patient information to the electronic medical record. And as new members of the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators, we will conduct a confidential nursing survey. We hope all our nurses will participate in order to help us continue to improve the care we provide. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

Indulge your dog in Halloween, but be safe animals may be a cause of injury: All those costumed young visitors can trigger territorial instincts or fear responses in some dogs, who may then become a bite risk. The best solution for nervous pets is to confine them for the evening in a crate or a quiet room far from the front door or any holiday festivities. Many animal-welfare groups warn that black cats are at special risk around Halloween, claiming that cultists pick up the animals for ritual torture. Such concerns have led many shelters to halt the adoption of black cats in the days before Halloween. In truth, such cruelties are so poorly documented that they surely happen rarely, if at all. Your black cat is more likely to be killed by a car than a cultist, since its difficult to see a black cat in the dark. But the threat of either is more than reason enough to keep him inside. If you keep your pets confined safely inside the house, you will eliminate one source of risk. Keeping them away from the goodies will take care of the other risk.Candy is a problem more for dogs than When did Halloween become such a big holiday? Its second only to Christmas, it seems, for decorating and celebrating, with special stores full of frightful fare and merchandise hitting all other retailers before summer is over. Its all in fun, of course, and whenever pet lovers have fun, our pets are usually included. But holidays are often anything but fun for many pets. While we humans love the change in routine with the parties, the guests and the decorations, our furred and feathered family members too often find the disruptions disturbing and sometimes dangerous. Like all holidays, Halloween is not without its hazards. The two biggest problems are injuries and poisoning and animal emergency clinics traditionally see plenty of both. When youre planning to include your pet in holiday plans, keep pet protection in the mix. With the increase in activity around the neighborhood, cats and dogs get nervous, and some will take off if they can. That means an increase in the number of animals hit by cars. Other times, PET TALES Frightfully funBY GINA SPADAFORI _______________________________Universal Uclickfor cats because cats are generally picky about what they eat. Not so for many dogs, wholl wolf down candy (wrappers and all) if given the opportunity, giving many a serious case of what veterinarians call garbage gut. While chocolate really isnt the deadly threat many believe, a small dog who gets a large amount of dark chocolate does need veterinary intervention. A bigger threat to all pets, though, is from candy and gum sweetened with Xylitol. Its deadly stuff for pets, so keep it out of their reach. And finally, what about costumes for pets? If it makes you happy, go for it. Your dog doesnt care if he has a biker jacket, sunglasses, an ear-hugging visor or even a colorful bandanna. Hell put up with most anything you put on him, as long as it means spending more time with you. If putting a costume on your dog means youll fuss over him and maybe take him somewhere interesting, like the costume contests that are everywhere these days, then sure, its a no-lose proposition. Dress up your dog and have some fun. Do make sure that any costume you choose or make meets common-sense standards: Its comfortable and nonrestrictive, inedible, and it doesnt involve anything that could be hazardous, such as dye or paint. There has never been a wider selection of silly stuff for pets at retailers, so you can pick up a costume or two easily. Ive dressed up my pets before, and I have to say that my favorite costume of all time a first-place prize-winner at more than one contest was also the cheapest and easiest. I purchased a package of round white dots from an office supply store, and put them all over my black retriever. His Reverse Dalmatian get-up got laughs everywhere we went.

This stele was erected in 196 BCE, a decree by a congress of priests that granted themselves a tax exemption. It was erected in the ninth year of the reign of Ptolemy V, who became pharaoh and god at age five. This young boy was thrust into this position after the murder of his parents by his fathers mistress and her brother/ lover. After they tried to take political control, there was a revolt that resulted in the murderers murder. The frightened boy-king Ptolemy was forced to give assent to the killing of his mothers killer. The Rosetta Stone stele gave thanks to the priests who supported the revolt by granting them tax exemptions. There was a rubric for this kind of proclamation. First, the gods were identified and praised, then the priests. Then the boy Ptolemy himself was given a feast for which were created special rites and rituals of garlands and sacrifices. The boys sacred name was Epiphanes Eucharistos. Both of these words come from the Greek: Epiphanes from the word for appearance, manifestation; Eucharistos from the word for grateful. Although both the words of the boys sacred name have meaning in Christian doctrine, it is interesting to note that in 392 CE the stele was broken in accord with the prohibition of non-Christian structures. The broken black granite piece now called the Rosetta Stone was found 300 years later, part of the foundation of a fortress, by French soldiers in Napoleons Egyptian campaign. It was subsequently seized by the British, spirited away on a gun carriage. The text of the Rosetta Stone is not remembered for its content, but rather because the text appears in three languages: ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs (language of the gods), a more modern Egyptian script (language of documents), and ancient Greek (language of the street). The government center of that time was in Alexandria, Greece, but the older scripts honored the older traditions of Memphis, Egypt. Although none of the texts were complete due to the smallness of the fragment, the ancient Greek was translatable. So when it was understood that the same text appeared in each of the languages, the stone became a key to unlock the meaning of the hieroglyphs. In 1822, in Paris, Francois Champollion decrypted the ancient hieroglyphs. The term Rosetta Stone has come to mean a small representative sample that can be used in decryption, as a clue to understand a larger whole. And like the one fish two fish red fish blue fish black fish blue fish old fish new fish some are red and some are blue. some are old and some are new. some are sad and some are glad. and some are very, very bad. why are they sad and glad and bad? i dont know. go ask your dad. all quotes herein: Dr. Suess Theodore Suess Geisel, the son of German immigrants, inherited the family brewery one month before Prohibition. In college, he was caught drinking gin in his room with friends. Due to that infraction, he was prohibited from continuing as editor of his college humor magazine, Jack-O-Lantern. Undaunted, he began to work under the pen name Suess. When he graduated, he became Dr. Suess. In 1937, during his return Atlantic Ocean voyage, the rhythm of the ships engines inspired him to write his first childrens book. Dr. Suess used other pen names, too. Sometimes he spelled his name backwards. At other times, he called himself Rosetta Stone.some are thin and some are fat. the fat one has a yellow hat. from there to here, from here to there, MUSINGS f h f O w s Rx Stelesboy kings sacred name, we are grateful for appearances that bring realization. we see them come. we see them go. some are fast. and some are slow. some are high. and some are low. not one of them is like another. dont ask us why. go ask your mother.Perhaps the specific story of the Rosetta Stone text could be seen as less significant than its decrypting structure. And yet, to where does the decryption lead? Are we not taken to other stories, or to stories about stories, or to stories about stories about stories? Primary in the heart vision of this pirate is manifestation of the face of a young boy who is himself narrated into stories of god, of pharaoh, of orphan, of lover. This face is awakened epiphany for which the only response can be gratitude. This face creates opportunity to love. This face is mirror and light.

Cardboard cutouts of black cats and witches abound, and aisles are choked with monster-sized bags of candy, which usually contain single, individually wrapped pieces. But these are just the tips of a very big iceberg the small stuff that people purchase on the way home from work or as an afterthought or impulse. Real, honest-to-goodness Halloween shopping for costumes and decorations is big business. Very big business. In fact, the National Retail Federation estimates that American adults will spend $5.8 billion to celebrate Halloween this year, which is about a $1 billion increase over last years sales figures. Increasingly, specialty shops some of which pop-up in August or long about Labor Day and then close shortly after Halloween are where true connoisseurs spend a lions share of their fright-night budget. Southwest Florida mirrors a national trend toward pop-up stores that specialize in Halloween-related items. These stores generally begin their operations around Labor Day and remain open until a day or two after Halloween. Spirit Halloween, a New Jersey-based firm, is the most prominent of these pop-up operations. Nationally, Spirit operates more than 850 pop-up stores in the United States and Canada. Most of its temporary stores are in malls and strip centers. It has five stores in Southwest Florida two each in Fort Myers and Naples and one in Port Charlotte. Spirit has operated in Fort Myers for six years and in Naples for four years. In Fort Myers, the average Spirit store is about 30,000 square feet, while stores in Naples average about 20,000 square feet, said Tony Detzi, Spirits vice president of operations. The stores each employ about 15 to 20 associates and an assistant manager and a manager. All the jobs, except the managers, are part-time. The jobs last for the duration of the Halloween shopping season, he said. Spirit opens it stores around Labor Day and closes them a day or two after Halloween. Weve bucked the trend (during the recession), Mr. Detzi said last week during a telephone interview from Miami, where he was inspecting Spirit stores. Last year was a record year, the best year weve ever had. When times are bad, people still want to go out and have a good time. There is a rule of thumb in Halloween retailing: Older customers spend less. Buyers in the 18-to-45 age range are the most prized by Halloween retailers.

The car is featured throughout the sequel to the 1987 classic, Wall Street. For my guest, the movie was fascinating but not a quick or easy up-take. After the movie, the recap was, Wow! Wasnt that great! but, seconds later, was followed by, What was it all about? I guess you would understand it. Yes, I got it but I am a veteran of Wall Street. What about others? Quite possibly many other Florida Weekly readers will watch the movie and have the same reaction as my guests. (And, for those in the know, dont think that whispering frequent explanations to your unknowing companions during the movie will work. Thats supposed to be Hank Paulsen, Theyre talking about Goldman Sachs or Thats Bernanke! Those comments will accomplish nothing except to irritate fellow moviegoers.) Here is some background that might be helpful before you watch the movie and a Wall Street veterans thoughts about what the movie portrays well. The setting: winter 2008 and the beginnings of the unraveling of the sub prime mortgages and related credit default swaps. Gordon Gekko a character in the vein of Ivan Boesky or Michael Milken, both of whom made fame and fortune in merger and acquisition arbitrage in the 1980s is being released from a long stint in prison for insider trading and other fraud charges. He is re-entering the world penniless but with a complete understanding of the underpinnings of the impending financial crisis. He understands the degree of leverage, the nature of poor assets leveraged and the egos, greed and flawed thinking of the parties running many of the at-risk banks and hedge funds.

The movies love story is clear: Gekko seemingly seeks reunion with his daughter who is still wounded by her fathers crimes and failures as a family man. The daughter, despite her disdain for her father and his dealings, falls deeply in love with a man who works in the same New York City financial world. It is the fast-paced investment story that causes confusion in the uninitiated viewer. The fictitious investment-banking firm of Keller Zabel, which employs his daughters lover, is going down." Not just any firm, it is a U.S. Government bond dealer, a position considered to be a semiextension of the U.S. Treasury in that the firm takes bids for bond issuance. U.S. dealer status is special to the government and to all its customers. Given Keller Zabels sub-prime woes and ultimate distress price tag, the failing firm is a Bear Stearns look-alike. In the movie, the founder of this firm has private meetings with the New York Federal Reserve Bank in an attempt to stay alive. Also around the negotiating table are principals from other investment houses. These firms could/ might/ will play a role in keeping the firm out of bankruptcy. In the real world, Bear was kept alive; Lehman was allowed into bankruptcy. The only bidder for the failing firm in the film is a rather sleazy partnership. (Sometimes the partnership looks like an investment banking firm and sometimes like a hedge fund.) The deal offered by this partnership requires huge government guarantees. Again, these facts are akin to Bear Stearns merger, which required such guarantees. In the course of the negotiations, it is clear that there is no love lost between all the parties: the Treasury acting in unison with the Fed, the failing firm and the acquirer. The tall and large, baldheaded man leading the negotiations is supposed to be a none-too-happy Hank Paulsen, secretary of the treasury; he is to relay the bad news (the size of these guarantees) to the president. The acquirer seeks revenge against Keller Zabel and effects such revenge through a lowball acquisition price. The basis of the bad feelings is that the acquirer had troubles in the dot com bust of 2000; the Feds attempts to orchestrate financial support from other investment firms (a mini-bailout) at that time was rejected by the Keller Zabel and it made life incredibly hard for this acquirer. Is this simply a fabricated story line? Does this film have any basis in reality? Do these sorts of things really happen? Absolutely. In 1998, Long Term Capital Management was a quant fund run by geniuses, that is, until it became a failed fund bailed out by non-geniuses. Bear Stearns, among many other major investment firms, was asked to participate in the bailout and they refused. The bailout did proceed but it left bad feelings on The Street. And some think that some of Bears problems were worsened by remembrance of their unwillingness to put money into the plate passed to all the majors. The movie also showed how completely false rumors can spread like wildfire and cause the demise of a firm or investment. This also has parallels to the reality of events for Lehman and Bear. The rumors that they were going to fail (spread by many a hedge fund holding short positions in those stocks) made it impossible for the two firms to fund themselves. They could not participate in the overnight repo market because an investment firm cannot open for business if it cant roll its debt. Another confusing storyline has one of the partners of the acquiring firm having made a fortune in the past by shorting the stock of his own firm. What sense does that make? A lot. Like Enron, if you know your firm is going to fail, you dump the stock. In the film, the bad guy sets up an offshore hedge fund to short his stock something he couldnt do in the U.S. The villain is last found sitting in front of a Bernanke look-alike and being told of impending charges. not that it would happen that way in reality. There is no question that the movie gives some insight into how the excesses of money and power held in the hands of some men (mostly men) translate into opulent lifestyles, God-like selfperceptions and gross corruption. It also makes clear that business on Wall Street is not just a bunch of trades and contracts; it also consists of a world of good and bad relationships where trust is sometimes broken and ethics are alternately upheld and ignored. If youre going to invest in a ticket to the movie, my advice is to read a few simple articles about the 2008 crisis and brush up on your financial lingo.

QUALIT T RVICE older in its demographics, one would think that Halloween spending here would be on the low end. Not so, said Mr. Detzi. That assumption isnt true, he said, adding that Spirit, which is privately held, does not release sales figures. Actually, business in Naples and Fort Myers has been good. This is a good market for us. Although the stores operate seasonally, work at Spirits New Jersey headquarters (where 55 people are employed) goes full-throttle all year. We get the stores torn down and merchandise shipped back by the middle of November, he said. Spirits buyers leave for Asia the day after Halloween on scouting trips for new items, Mr. Detzi added. Around Jan. 1, the company begins scouring the U.S. for prime locations for stores for the upcoming season. Pop-up stores often get sweet deals for their locations especially in this depressed real estate market because owners are often desperate to fill empty space, even if it is only temporary. Spirit Halloween is a division of Spencer Gifts, the mega company that has a dominating mall presence throughout North America. Spirit Halloween was started by an entrepreneur in San Francisco who was unable to raise enough capital to grow the company to its full potential. When Spencer Gifts purchased Spirit in 1999 (for a price that Mr. Detzi would not disclose) there were fewer than 100 stores. Before (Spirit was purchased) Spencer owned Halloween in the malls, Mr. Detzi said. Now the company seeks to rule the market everywhere. Industry analysts say that one reason for the optimism regarding Halloween spending this year is because it falls on a Sunday. Generally, Halloweens that take place during the weekend spawn more activity. (Last year was an exception. Halloween was on a Saturday, but spending nationally was down from 2008.) In a tongue-in-cheek move last year, Steven Silverstein, Spirits CEO, went to Washington, D.C., to lobby on Capitol Hill for Halloween to be made an official holiday that always falls on Saturday. Mr. Silverstein was accompanied on his mission by supporters dressed as Wonder Woman, Popeye, Scarecrow and Dorothy. While Mr. Detzi noted that the move was aimed at generating attention for Spirit Halloween and not in actually generating legislation, there is no doubt that a permanent designation of Halloween to Saturday would boost industry revenues. But even without such a move, Halloween remains an occasion that ranks with Christmas and Thanksgiving to some of its most devoted fans. Stacie Dunn spent last visiting Halloween specialty stores in Fort Myers, seeking bargains for her 8-yearold daughter and 4-year-old son. It can be quite costly, she said, standing outside the sprawling Halloween Megastore on S. Cleveland Avenue. Ill probably spend about $50 to $75 total on both children for their costumes. I will look here and then at a couple of other places to see where we can find the best bargains. Generally, we start looking sometime in August for our Halloween stuff. Brandy Dentzau, assistant manager at the Halloween Megastore, said customers like Mrs. Dunn are the rule, not the exception. Around Aug. 1 is when we start to see people looking in earnest (for Halloween paraphernalia), she said. It picks up from there. The Halloween Megastore is one of those rare places that remain open all year. In the non-peak months, Ms. Dentzau said the store does a brisk business in providing costumes for theatrical groups, school productions and people who need unusual garb for parties and the like. And for those who prefer a more permanent form of appearance alteration, the Halloween Megastore also boasts an adjoining studio that offers tattooing and body piercing. For most of the year, Ms. Dentzau said the Halloween store employs two people. As the witching day draws closer, the store adds staff and, at its peak, hires 10 additional workers (five who work in sales and five who work in security to prevent shoplifting). In a sign of the economic times, Ms. Dentzau said the store received more than 200 applications this year for the five sales slots. Business has remained strong throughout the recession, she said. People who love Halloween, really love it, she said. We have people who come in all the time, just to look at the costumes and see whats new. Many of the grown-ups take it more seriously than their children, said Ms. Dentzau at the Halloween Megastore. People come in here and just walk around, looking. They are fascinated by the masks and the costumes. Its a very big deal for them. In a strange twist, Ms. Dentzau added: Adults are a bigger shoplifting problem than teenagers or children. Weve had women come in and try to slip out with masks or whatever. Sometimes their children are with them. We take security seriously, so we usually catch them. Can you imagine how embarrassing it is for a kid to have their mother shoplifting at a Halloween store? Frankly, it sounds downright horrifying.

THE MOTLEY FOOL If you have only $20 or $50 per month to invest in stocks, you can do so effectively with dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs). (Invest more, though, and your retirement will thank you.) With DRIPs, you buy shares of a companys stock directly from it, bypassing brokers (and broker commissions!). Hundreds of companies, such as General Electric, IBM, Merck, McDonalds, Kraft Foods, Colgate-Palmolive and General Mills, offer these plans. With traditional DRIPs, you must already own at least one share of the stock before you enroll, in your own name. So if youre not already a shareholder, youll have to buy at least one share through a broker, paying the commission. (We list some brokers with low commissions at Be sure to have the share(s) registered in your name, not the brokerages name, as is typically done. Then you can open a DRIP account with the company and Big Money From Small 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. Good Diluted Earnings Q I read an earnings report recently that showed a profit of $1.26 per diluted share. What is a diluted share? M.K., Abilene, TexasA A companys bottom-line profit, or net income, is divided by its total share count to arrive at its earnings per share (EPS). The EPS is sometimes reported in two ways, as basic and diluted. Basic EPS uses the number of shares that currently exist, while diluted EPS is more conservative, including shares that could exist, if people exercised existing stock options, for example. Other securities that could be converted into common stock are also accounted for. Diluted EPS is the better number to look at.Q If a company is reporting increased losses per share instead of increased profits, should I avoid it? S.O., Augusta, Ga.A Maybe, but not necessarily. Companies sometimes make or spend a lot more in one year than another perhaps because theyve introduced a popular new product or have ramped up their research expenditures. Imagine the young Drive-Thru Dentistry (ticker: DRILZ) company. Lets say it lost about $20 million in 2008 and $60 million in 2009, though its revenues nearly doubled during the same period. Some investors see numbers like this and run the other way, preferring to invest only in companies reporting steadily increasing profits. Thats not crazy. But those willing to take on more risk may still consider buying, if other factors are compelling. These folks might figure that for emerging startups like DRILZ, this is the time when they should plow available money into advertising and growing the business. They reason that the time for profits is later, once the company has amassed a huge customer base. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us.

If you already own shares, you may have to pay your brokerage a fee to switch the registration from its name to yours. A newer variety of DRIPs, direct stock purchase plans (DSPs) operate similarly, except you neednt own any shares before enrolling. You can buy your very first shares through them. All these plans let you dollar-cost average, building a position in a stock by regularly plunking a certain sum into it. Theyll even purchase partial shares for you. For example, if McDonalds is trading around $75 per share and you send in a $25 contribution, itll buy about a third of a share.When the price is low, you get more shares, and vice versa. (Be sure to keep detailed records of all your purchases, for tax time.) Small regular purchases can really add up, plus shares of strong companies will grow in value over time. My dumbest investment was drinking the company Kool-Aid. I bought shares of stock in my employer, Humana, for around $62 apiece, and rode them down to $32 before the smelling salts kicked in. What an investment hangover. S.M., onlineThe Fool Responds: Humanas stock chart has been bumpy in recent years, partly due to prolonged uncertainty over how our nations health-care reforms would affect it. The reforms we got, though, seem promising for companies such as Humana, driving newly insured new customers to it. With shares back up above $50 recently, investors dont love the company unanimously, but many expect it to outperform the market, given its revenue growth, low debt, strong cash flow and reasonable valuation. Still, promising though it may be, no single stock should make up the bulk of your investment portfolio, even if its your employer.

Despite the fact there was no remuneration offered, readers pulled out the laptops, fired up their imaginations and dusted off their Strunk and White. Now that we know the audience can write, were turning them loose on a challenge were calling the Freestyle fiction and poetry contest. Winners in each of two categories will receive a ticket to the Sanibel Island Writers Conference, running Nov. 4-7 at BIG ARTS. There are two contest categories: Fiction and Poetry. One winner in each category will receive one ticket a $350 value. Unlike prior writing challenges, this one doesnt come with a photo as a prompt. We ask that compositions have some connection with Southwest Florida; beyond that purposefully vague request, participants are free to take this wherever theyd like. Fiction submissions should not exceed 2,800 words. Poetry should not exceed 75 lines. There is no minimum requirement. To qualify for the contest, e-mail submissions must be received by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22. Send to freestyle@ Depending on which category one is entering, the subject line should read as follows: freestyle_fiction_title of your composition or freestyle_poetry_title of your composition. Entrants should be able to go to the conference. Tickets will be in the entrants name only. If a winner cannot attend the conference, we ask to be notified so that we can pass the ticket on to the second-place winner. No transfers its only fair. Florida Weekly will print the best entries, and winners will be notified by Monday, Nov. 1. Thanks and good luck.

PAGE 46 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 6, 2010 Leave it to the satirical fictitious newspaper The Onion to capture the spirit of American higher education with its recent article, Report: More Colleges Offering Dick-Around Programs Abroad. The chance to spend every night partying in pretty much the same way they would have at home is an experience theyll never forget, a fake university official said.The Onion mock-quotes a university senior, Its the best thing I did in college. The plot line and the characters are all invented, but still the fake newspaper gets it just right. The study abroad experience is the defining moment for many college students. It marks a time for even fewer restrictions than regular college life, a time for the hedonism and abandon that have come to characterize travel overseas. The only part The Onion forgot to mention was the inordinate amount of sleeping around that also goes on during semesters abroad (although the 2005 fake report U.S. Foreign Policy Hurting American Students Chances Of Getting Laid Abroad came close). Studying abroad has become a semester-long booze-fest punctuated by random hook-ups. And if Americans abroad are willing to capitalize on the lib-Study abroad relationships struggle at border crossing of real world ArtisHENDERSON erties offered by a tour overseas, then so are the locals they come across. Its hard not to be cynical about these cross-cultural romances that spring from studies overseas. Yes, love is blind. Sometimes it has to be deaf and dumb, too. Or so you would think when you meet these couples who share 20 words of a common language. But my cynicism is not always justified. A beautiful friend of mine recently married her French boyfriend whom she met during study abroad. The two survived a 10-year relationship, and now theyre joined in matrimony. I know other couples who have made the magic of cross-cultural love work, too. But for every pair of like-minded lovers, I can name 10 where the motivations on one part, at least were less than honest. These often stem from encounters with foreign lotharios, men who profess instantaneous and overwhelming love for the American women they meet. They say I love you while they drive you in their taxi; they offer to father your multinational children while they sell you fabric in the marketplace. When my friends abroad tell me about their latest loves, I try not to be skeptical. But sometimes even love has trouble transcending international boundaries. A young friend who is studying overseas giggles when she tells me about the boys SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSshe meets. They send text messages to her phone, offer to meet up for tea, want to take her dancing. Sometimes they say they love her. But they dont even know me, she says. I can tell she thinks its charming, that shes seduced by their flattery. I want to warn her about their affections, but she would only laugh. This is part of her study abroad experience, after all a time outside the constraints of reality. Who am I to bring her back to the real world? ...The chance to spend every night partying in pretty much the same way they would have at home is an experience theyll never forget... s then so b out t h ese ng f rom blind. a y s n te n d ud y y ear n e d in e made the k too.

The musical production presented by The Naples Players runs Oct. 6-30 at the Sugden Community Theatre. It stars a cast of two: real-life husband-and-wife and popular Naples Players Mary Anne McAvoy McKerrow and John McKerrow, who have appeared in previous productions including Mame, Much Ado About Nothing and Anything Goes. Producer David Merricks production of I Do! I Do! opened on Broadway in December 1966 and ran for 560 performances. Mary Martin and Robert Preston comprised the original cast; Carol Lawrence and Gordon MacRae replaced them later in the run. Carol Burnett and Rock Hudson starred in a national tour, and the film adaptation starred Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. Showtime at the Sugden Community Theatre is 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $35 for adults and $10 for students up to age 18.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 6, 2010 C9 GIVING In in effort to raise awareness of Immokalee to the greater Collier County area, the Community Foundation of Collier County in 2009 sponsored Images of Hope: Immokalee Looking Forward Looking Back, a photographic journey of Immokalee by Brynn Bruijn. The project included an exhibition of works selected from the published book of the same name. These photographs were chosen to convey an authentic and illuminating portrait of Immokalee and the people who live and work there. The exhibition, organized by the Community Foundation and the Naples Museum of Art was sponsored by Lowry Hill Private Asset Management. Images of Hope premiered at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts, where, during its 10-week exhibition, more than 5,000 individuals experienced the power of the photographs and had the opportunity to learn more about this community that is so near to Naples, but so very different. Many expressed their appreciation that Immokalee, which is a vital part of the fabric of Collier County, was made more understandable and accessible through this body of work. In September 2010, the exhibit was installed in its permanent home at the Immokalee ITECH conference center. To celebrate this milestone, the Community Foundation invited the Immokalee Nonprofit Networks board of directors, executive directors, staff and volunteers to the exhibition and a luncheon, which were made possible by the support of Lowry Hill.The foundation has been providing technical and education support to nonprofits serving the Immokalee area for 11 years. This small, agricultural community of 25,000 swells to 40,000 during season, due to the influx of migrant farmworkers that plant and process 70 percent of the nations vegetables between October and May. The demands on the nonprofit organizations providing basic human services and education in the area are great, and the need for strong, wellfunded organizations is critical.In response, the foundation established the Immokalee Nonprofit Network. Recently, three funds were established to help support the encouraging collaborative efforts among nonprofits and governmental agencies. The Early Childhood Learning Fund was created to provide scholarships for 1,500 children. Every dollar is matched by the state. The Early Childhood Collaborative is also working with the current providers toward a coordinated client intake and referral program. The Immokalee Housing Collaboration Fund is designed to support both the preservation and expansion of affordable living in Immokalee neighborhoods. Currently there are only 6,000 housing units for the population of Immokalee. The Emergency Relief Fund provides food, rent and utilities vouchers to people in crisis. Every dollar reaches those in need through a coordinated system of care. Donors can maximize their philanthropic dollars in these areas by giving to one or all of the funds. The Community Foundation oversees the distribution of dollars and helps to coordinate services through the efforts of consultant Barbara Cacchione. The Community Foundation of Collier County manages more than 400 funds established by charitable individuals and organizations and offers donor advised funds.

Keep your mind open and resist joining in with naysayers unless they can show a real basis for their position.SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) While potential career changes warrant your interest, dont ignore current job responsibilities. A personal relationship can also benefit from more of your attention.SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Dont guess at what the facts might be if you hope to make the best decision possible. The wise course is to ask direct questions and act on the answers you get.CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your efforts involving that pesky problem should soon show positive signs of being resolved. This would allow you to shift some of your focus in another direction.AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) While you enjoy welldeserved praise for getting a difficult job done, theres no time to relax. A new challenge looms. Expect more support from a once-strong critic.PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might still have explaining to do about your decision, but support grows as you continue to make your case. You also might want to start making plans for the upcoming holidays.ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your moodier side might emerge this week. But the dark period should pass in time for the party-loving Lamb to go on a happy gambol with some very special people this weekend.TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Yet again, you show your skill at being able to indulge in your love of the arts this week while still taking care of practical matters, including some still-unfinished business matters.GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A potential change might appear to be what youve been looking for. In any event, consider both the negative as well as the positive possibilities before making any sort of decision.CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Relationships continue to dominate your aspect this week on a mostly positive level, with just a few problem areas you can smooth over. Also, try to be flexible about travel plans.LEO (July 23 to August 22) You love being on center stage, and while you absolutely purr at the sound of all that praise, be careful not to take on too many commitments at the expense of time spent with loved ones.VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might feel that you need to get involved in a matter concerning a friend or relative. But while the issues appear to be cut and dried, they might not be. Get more facts before you act.BORN THIS WEEK: You insist on making decisions based on facts, not on popular opinions. Have you considered a career in science?

Just off Interstate 75, the location provides easy access for everyone from Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. The festival will have live entertainment, a vendor market, community service organizations, food, beer and more. It was founded out of a grassroots effort to put on a community celebration of the 40th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City. It started with about 20 individuals representing area businesses, clubs, organizations and schools. Within six weeks, and with no money, little experience and only a few posters to get the word out, they organized a four-hour festival with more than 30 vendors and a stage packed full of entertainment. The second annual event remains a 100 percent volunteer effort. Why is Pride still relevant 41 years after the Stonewall riots? Organizers say that although the gay and lesbian, transgender and bi-sexual community has come a long way since 1969, theres still a long way to go in Southwest Florida. The festival helps raise awareness by showcasing gay and lesbian organizations and those that support the areas gay and lesbian community. Club sponsors of the 2010 festival are Bambusa in Naples and Tubbys in Fort Myers. Various bars and clubs will hold after parties to continue the festivities.

Candles, the glow of a fireplace and, by the 19th century, lamps using whale oil, lard, kerosene or gas added a little more light. The rich decorated their rooms with mirrors and polished brass, luster-decorated ceramics and other items that reflected light. Decorative mirrors used in homes usually do not serve such a noble purpose, but even today when your electricity fails, it is wise to put candles in front of a mirror to magnify the light. Our ancestors also knew that a convex mirror, one that has a surface that curves out, creates even more reflected light. From about 1800 to 1820, the girandole was a popular mirror to hang on a wall. It has a convex mirror, gilded frame and candleholders attached so that candlelight is reflected in the mirror. These furnished light for evening gatherings. Copies of antique girandoles are being made today, but the candles are now electrified. Elaborate antique girandoles sell for $2,000 to $20,000; recent copies sell for under $1,000. Q: I have a glass juicer with the name Sunkist embossed in the glass. When was it made?

Juice was made by hand-squeezing fresh oranges at home using a reamer (the collectors name for a juicer). A glass Sunkist reamer cost 10 cents back then. But you can buy new glass, plastic or metal reamers or collect old ones, including ceramic examples. Look for combination reamers: a figural pitcher with a reamer cover or an old wooden two-piece hinged reamer you press to make juice. The first patented reamer, dated 1889, was made in ceramic and metal versions. The Sunkist glass reamer is easy to find at prices from $10 to $50 online, but you would pay much less for it at a garage sale. Q: I have an oval pendant given to me by my great-grandmother. I think she wore it in the 1920s. Its a piece of glass carved from the back and held in a sterling-silver mount. A silver filigree tree branch and a tiny enameled blue bird are on the front of the glass. Its about 2 inches long and is very delicate. What is this type of jewelry called? Value? A: You probably have a pendant made from rock crystal, not glass. This type of jewelry, usually a pendant, is sometimes called camphor glass jewelry. It was very popular in the 1920s and s but has been out of style the past 25 years. Large modern pieces or very ornate jewelry with colored stones and glitter has been popular instead. Rock-crystal pendants are subtle and feminine, but fragile. It is not used in rings because it could be easily hit and broken. The pendants usually are on a delicate white-gold chain about 16 inches long. Look for a K mark somewhere on the pendant or chain. A chain and pendant sell for about $300. Q: I have an old bottle thats embossed U.S.A. Hosp. Dept. Can you tell me who made it and how old it is? A: Your bottle was made for the U.S. Army Hospital Dept. between 1863 and 1865, during the Civil War. The War Dept. had trouble getting enough medicine from pharmaceutical companies, so labs were set up to make the drugs they needed. Most of the bottles were made in Pittsburgh, but some were made in Baltimore and St. Louis. The bottles were crudely made and contained bubbles and flaws. Bottles were made in different colors and sizes and with several different styles of lettering. Some had paper labels. Tip: Animation cels should be kept away from direct sunlight and high humidity. They should be framed with acid-free mats. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Submit listings to Cuisine@ WEEKLY CUISINE Theres something (good and) fishy going on at Sea Salt these days. Chef/ owner Fabrizio Aielli has installed a large glass case in the dining room in which he displays all manner of fresh seafood. On a recent evening, there were whole grouper, various snappers, lobster, shrimp, squid, dorade and branzino glistening amid mounds of crushed ice. Customers are free to get up close and select whatever fish appeals to them. When we first opened, people didnt want to see the whole fish with the head on, Chef Aielli says. But thats changed. They like to choose different fish and compare at the table.One customer came in and took one look at a large black grouper on display, asked how many it would feed, then returned a short time later with a dozen friends in tow. When told it would take about two hours to cook the fish, the group settled in for drinks and appetizers.The fish is deboned and plated tableside, which makes it showier still. Having recently sampled a delicious array of the cases offerings that had been simply grilled and seasoned, I can confidently recommend this outstanding addition to an already stellar restaurant. Sea Salt is at 1186 Third St. S.
