St. Matthews House and Corrion Bonita LLC have agreed to terminate the sales contract on the vacant bank building at 27975 Old 41 Road, at the northeast corner of Old 41 and Bonita Beach Road in Bonita Springs. The Naples-based SMH had planned to open a 200-bed shelter for the homeless on the 2.4-acre site. We heard the concerns of the community and realized that we would not be able to obtain approval from the city of Bonita Springs, says the Rev. Vann Ellison, president and CEO of St. Matthews House. Many of Bonita Springs business leaders felt that the highly visible location was not ideal for our needs. We are grateful that the banks owners graciously let us out of the contract without any fees or penalties. We are highly motivated and convinced that we will find a location that meets the needs of the underserved, Rev. Ellison says, adding SMH is working with city leaders to identify alternative locations in Bonita Springs. The mission of SMH is to change lives in a spiritual environment that is both compassionate and disciplined, as well as to provide housing for the homeless and food for the needy. The nonprofit organization, along with Immokalee Friendship House, has been serving the homeless, hungry and hopeless since 1987. SMH has 170 beds for men, women and families. Serving meals at the Old Firehouse, SMH is the only feeding ministry in Naples. It also operates three thrift stores, two food pantries, Wolfe Apartments transitional affordable housing and a direct assistance program to individuals and families in need.

Santiago De ChochCOURTESY PHOTOSantiago De Choch inspecting a field of zinnias at Brittain Farms in Alva.BY BILL CORNWELLbcornwell@ oridaweekly.com OME NINE YEARS AGO, TOWARD the end of his all-too-short but thoroughly extraordinary life, George Harrison decided it was time to set the record straight. Shockingly, the former Beatle, who was dying from throat cancer, announced that he really did not consider himself to be a musician. I occasionally write a tune, but Im not really a career person, he explained. Im a gardener, basically. Say what? The man who was a member of the most famous musical group of all time, the man who was one of the great guitar virtuosos of the Twentieth Century, the man who composed Something, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, My Sweet Lord and Here Comes the Sun (which was written, lore has it, during an afternoons meditation in a garden), actually saw himself first and foremost as a gardener?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 Do you have breasts? Of course not. Not if youre an alien. But if youre a man or a woman, yes you do have breasts. And if youre a woman with breasts, you have a one-in-eight chance of getting breast cancer. Let me offer you one more If, now that Breast Cancer Awareness Month has officially kicked off: If youre a man or a woman, you have almost a 100 percent chance of knowing someone who has suffered directly or indirectly from this very hostile disease (if youre an alien, you probably dont know anybody with breast cancer). The people at Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Southwest Florida, the pink people, know all this, and they like breasts good, healthy breasts. Which is why Im writing this column. I like good healthy breasts, too. So when Miriam Ross, the director of the pink people, called me the other day and put the hammer down, I decided she was right. Id written a big old freight train of a story about breast cancer for Florida Weeklys pink issue a week ago, but mentioned the pink people only tangentially. Let me call them that so I wont have to continue repeating their name, marvelous as it is: Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Southwest Florida. Website: www. komenswfl.org. Phone: 498-0016. Roger, were the biggest nonprofit in the fight against breast cancer here, Ms. Ross said. I dont think you gave readers a sense of that. I was disappointed. There was nothing left for me to say but this: About 200 people will die of breast cancer here in Southwest Florida between now and October 2011 and many of them wouldnt have to, if theyd discovered the disease earlier. If they hadnt been afraid to get care because they thought they couldnt pay for it. If they hadnt been too busy to check themselves or have an annual mammogram. The pink people will help keep many Southwest Floridians from falling victim to those particular ifs. And they will make sure anyone gets help absolutely anyone, under any circumstances but not if anyone fails to reach out to them, either to get help or to give it, for that matter. You have the word of Ms. Ross on that. She gave it to me, and skeptical as I am I took it without hesitation or pause. I believe her. But if her word isnt enough, you have the record. The pink people of Southwest Florida are everywhere, under different names. The 2010/2011 slate of grants from Komen to local organizations, for example, is stunningly generous, and many of Florida Weeklys readers are responsible for helping that happen. Here are some closely proximate numbers: $176,000 to Lee Memorial Health Systems breast cancer efforts; $116,000 to the Family Health Centers breast cancer efforts; $174,000 to Partners for Breast Cancer Care; $89,500 to CHS Health Cares Immokalee program; $45,000 to the NCH Healthcare Systems breast cancer efforts; $55,000 to the Manatee County Health Department, which provides mammograms for many in Charlotte County; $73,000 to Neighborhood Health Clinics breast cancer efforts in Collier County; $5,500 to Lucys Angels for Breast Cancer Care; $15,000 for Light of Southwest Floridas breast cancer efforts; and $31,000 for the Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Community Clinics breast cancer efforts in Charlotte County. Remarkable as that is to me, this is more so: As a national organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure ranked number one out of 1,151 American charities analyzed by Harris Interactive (wellrespected researchers), and it received a four-star rating from the watchdog organization, charitynavigator.org. Thats not easy to do, since charitynavigator ignores self-congratulatory public relations or marketing applause to look at the reality of aid. Part of the reason is that a great deal of the money raised in local communities goes straight into breast cancer care there, and the rest goes directly into research the numbers are 75 percent and 25 percent, respectively, for the Southwest Florida branch of the pink people. For those who give help, the likelihood of actually saving a life or offering real and tangible succor to a suffering soul is very high. And judging by Komens list of events unfolding this month and next (check the website and get to the parade), you can have a lot of fun doing it, too. Here are just three of the many opportunities described in a Komen brochure: Carve for the Cure Cirque Culinaire, from 6-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, at the Robb & Stucky Culinary Center in Bonita Springs. The evening features signature pumpkins carved by local physicians, an variety of gourmet cuisine and live entertainment. Tickets are $50 per person. For more information, call 949-3001. Bowl for the Cure, 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23: Three Southwest Florida bowling centers host this tournament: Friendship Lanes in Cape Coral, www. friendshiplanes.com ; Bowland Port Charlotte, www.bowlandcenters.com; and Bowland Beacon, Naples, www. bowlandcenters.com. Snook Bight weekend, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 19-20, at the Snook Bight Marina, Fort Myers Beach: The weekend will start with a wine dinner and live auction at Bayfront Bistro. The event continues on Saturday with a boat show, live music and fun and games for all ages. A portion of the dinner and all net proceeds from the auction and chance drawings will directly benefit the Komen Southwest Florida Affiliate.

MOMENTS IN TIME On Oct. 7, 1913, for the first time, Henry Fords entire Highland Park, Mich., automobile factory is run on an assembly line. This cut the man-hours required to complete one Model T from 12-1/2 hours to six. Further improvements reduced the time required to 93 man-minutes. On Oct. 8, 1871, a spark in the Chicago barn of Patrick and Catherine OLeary ignites a two-day blaze that kills between 200 and 300 people, destroys 17,450 buildings and leaves 100,000 homeless. Legend has it that Mrs. OLearys cow kicked over a lantern and started the fire. In 1997, the Chicago City Council exonerated Mrs. OLeary and her cow. On Oct. 10, 1845, The United States Naval Academy opens in Annapolis, Md., with 50 midshipmen students and seven professors. The curriculum included mathematics and navigation, gunnery and steam, chemistry, English, natural philosophy and French. OPINION Over my many years in the banking industry, I have witnessed the generosity of numerous clients as theyve made end-of-year charitable gifts. More recently, as district chairman of the Edison State College Foundation Inc., I have had the good fortune to see first hand how such gifts are directly affecting the lives of those on the receiving end. Going into debt and making personal sacrifices to get an education is nothing new. I did it, and you probably did as well. Edison State College students sacrifice, too. We recently learned that a larger percentage of Edison students work more than 30 hours a week when compared to their counterparts nationwide. But when these students are also dealing with illness, injury or a recent divorce, have lost their jobs, or are caring for family members, their plans to make a better future for themselves and their families are often derailed. In the 2009-2010 fiscal year, nearly 1,000 students received $1.7 million in privately funded scholarships through the Edison State College Foundation. In most cases, these scholarships are awarded when all other sources of federal financial aid have been tapped and a financial need remains. In many cases, the funding provides the margin of difference between the student graduating or dropping out. Thankfully, there are big-hearted people in our community who are making a positive impact by donating to the Edison State College Foundation. They believe that education changes lives for the better and makes a difference not only for the students, but also contributes to a better community and stronger economy. Their gifts, large and small, help Edison students to pay tuition and buy their textbooks so they can use personal funds for groceries, child care, rent and car repairs. In their own words, our grateful students say thanks: I want to personally thank you for taking me into consideration for your scholarship. Words are voiced from my heart and I deeply appreciate this. I am planning to major in business management as a background, get an MBA and then a Ph.D. in education. I am passionate to change a negative into a positive and I will do so by guiding the youth. You have shined light into my future. Please accept my deepest thanks for the scholarship I was recently awarded. This award does not simply help with my tuition and book costs it makes my nursing education possible. As a single-income family, there is simply no way that we could afford the high cost of tuition and books without assistance. This scholarship is helping to make my dream a reality and for this I will be eternally grateful. As you think about which charitable cause you would like to support, please consider the one in which you will receive the greatest return on investment education. This year alone, 24,000 students chose Edison State College to master a new technology, begin a career or learn a new skill. Edisons faculty and staff are committed to access, and see the potential for growth in every individual. They reach out to honor students as well as those who have never considered themselves to be college material, and make it possible for motivated individuals from all walks of like to acquire the education and competencies needed to be a productive citizen. Many need our help. On behalf of Southwest Floridas future nurses, teachers, paramedics, accountants, legal assistants and business executives, I thank you for your support. For more information on Edison State College, call 489-9210. Bruce Schultz is president and CEO of Southwest Capital Bank and district chairman of the Edison State College Foundation.Say thanks for education with a scholarshipWhen John Kerry calls you out of touch, you must be so far out of touch that you need to call Mazlan Othman, the U.N.s designated liaison to space aliens, to re-establish contact with Planet Earth. So it was a signal moment when the Massachusetts senator took it upon himself to explain the outlandish folkways of the American people: We have an electorate that doesnt always pay that much attention to whats going on, so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or truth or whats happening. Take that, Velma Hart. Those who saw Hart, a middle-class, African-American mother of two, confront President Barack Obama at a CNBC town-hall meeting last month thought they had heard a genuine voice of dismay at the state of the economy and Obamas failure to deliver on his golden promises. If we take Hart as representative of the public mood, though, Kerry must have instead discerned a clueless complainer. If only Hart were sufficiently plugged in, shed have the sense to get over her economic anxiety. So what if she fears returning to frank-and-beans dinners? Does John Kerry carp when hes forced to move his $7 million yacht from Rhode Island to Massachusetts, where he has to shoulder an additional $500,000 tax bill? Whatever else you think of Democrats, they are lousy amateur sociologists and political scientists. Whenever the public rejects them, its a temper tantrum, in late ABC News anchor Peter Jennings term for the 1994 electoral rout. Liberal Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson has teed up that tried-and-true explanation for this fall: The American people are acting like a bunch of spoiled brats. Obama has his own theory of voter irrationality. In his view, if only economic conditions were stronger, reasonable people would be Obama-supporting secularists with liberal mores. During the 2008 primaries, he infamously explained that people in rural areas who werent supporting him were clinging to guns and religion because of the poor economy. Its the all-purpose explanation for any public sentiment that discomfits liberals. Not far behind is the plaint that the system is broken so people are understandably frustrated by the pace of change. This is the same system through which Democrats forced a historic $800 billion stimulus bill, a historic health-care law and a historic financial-regulation bill. Republican Rep. Mike Pence likes to point out that annual deficit figures for much of the Bush administration have now become monthly deficit figures. The publics reaction against the debt and the manifest failure of the stimuli should be easily understandable. If John Kerrys prognosis has any force, it applies to the dew-eyed Obama supporters who bought the fairy tale two years ago and wont bother to show up at the polls in November. These so-called surge voters, many of them young people, are exactly the ones who believed what Kerry calls simple slogans hope and change, yes, we can and other timeless gems of vapid marketing. When the late Democratic Sen. Mo Udall ran for president in 1976, he commented after one primary loss, The voters have spoken ... the bastards. Thats a great line, but a poor message for a political party.

When you send David Weigel an e-mail, Glenn reads him the message; buy him the local paper, and Mike announces the content. Glenn and Mike arent friends, family or employees theyre the technological voices of liberation. Glenn is Mr. Weigels voice-of-choice when using JAWS for Windows Screen Reading Software, developed for computer users whose vision loss prevents them from seeing screen content. Mike, on the other hand, provides the audio for Mr. Weigels Breeze Duo, an optical reader/scanner. In unfortunate lightning strikes twice occurrences, Mr. Weigel lost his left eye from an accident at age 14. Then in late 2002, he suffered a series of ocular issues that resulted in continual degradation of the vision in his right eye. Despite a life full of opportunity and an enviable career as Collier County attorney, it took vision loss and subsequent blindness for Mr. Weigel to cultivate his computer savvy. I wanted an open world, says the man who spent his junior year of college living in Bogot, Colombia, attended law school in New Orleans and postponed his legal career to live in Milan, where he learned Italian, worked for a biochemical pharmaceutical company and traveled Europe. Mr. Weigels demeanor conveys a silent strength, perhaps a combination of his upbringing and personal experiences. He followed his parents and twin brother to Naples in 1983, after his father suffered a debilitating stroke. He met his wife, Jeannie, in 1986 and gratefully recalls his father lived long enough to see them married three years later. Three children followed, and all the while, Mr. Weigel worked in the Collier County attorneys office for more than two decades, enjoying the longest tenure of any Collier County attorney in the countys history. He also enjoyed tennis, running and various active pursuits. In February 2007, I remember still throwing a Frisbee with my youngest son, Robert, he says. I havent seen (my sons) faces in over two years, but theyre locked in my memory. Mr. Weigels disability brought many changes to his life, including his involvement in the creation of Lighthouse of Collier Inc. three years ago, after a group of people from the community approached him about meeting with them to discuss the needs of the visually impaired, the blind and their caregivers. He became the groups chairman, and now serves as Lighthouse president. The organizations mission is to promote the development, implementation and on-going evaluation of programs and services that foster independence and enhance quality of life for the blind and visually impaired and their caregivers. Lighthouse gives people dignity and independence, he says. A volunteer effort, Lighthouse exists wholly on donations of time, talents and dollars. Companies and private individuals alike have contributed to its growth and success. For example, a generous donor gifted Lighthouse with a complete kitchen plus a washer and dryer so that clients can learn independent living skills at the organizations headquarters. The center has a wish list of smaller items needed to complete the setting. At Lighthouse, they can also learn how to use assistive technology devices, such as JAWS or the Breeze Duo, gather resource information such as how and where to obtain parking permits and transportation applications. Numerous books on tape are available through Lighthouse thanks to a cooperative effort with the Collier County Library system. Housed in donated space at 424 Bayfront Place, Lighthouse helps connect its target group with the programs and services necessary for them to lead better, more independent lives. Mr. Weigel says a staggering number of local children and adults are impacted by low vision or blindness. Through continued awareness, outreach and donations, he hopes Lighthouse will one day be in a position to support paid staff positions and offer broader services to those in need.One such service, coming this fall, is a low vision specialist, someone who will work with people who have low vision, assisting them with and prescribing as necessary low vision devices. Incidentally, October is Worldwide Blindness Awareness Month, which Mayor Bill Barnett recognized at Naples City Hall earlier this week. Several events are planned throughout the month as Lighthouse hopes to raise awareness and garner additional support from the community. Upcoming events include a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the center by the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce at noon on Monday, Oct. 18. Everyone is welcome. Although blindness altered Mr. Weigels career as an attorney a career that he loved he says it opened the door to work in another field of public service thats very close to his heart. No doubt Mike will have plenty to say about that in the future. For more information, visit www.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 How could that be? Anyone missing a green thumb probably finds Mr. Harrisons statement to be not only remarkable but downright mystifying as well. Yet to those who spend their time tilling, spading, mulching, weeding, watering, composting and doing whatever else it takes to coax living matter out of the soil, it makes perfect sense. Gardening, to a great number who are inclined to the pursuit, is not a hobby or an avocation or merely a means of laying your hands on a truly edible tomato. No, gardening and for these purposes were talking here principally about the growing and harvesting of fruits and vegetables is a passion that often assumes mystical and mythical proportions. If you have any doubts about that, just get avid gardeners talking on the subject. (It wont take much prodding.) For sheer mind-numbing compulsivity and maniacal commitment to a leisure activity, gardeners are rivaled only by their counterparts in the golfing and running communities. And, in case you havent noticed, gardeners are everywhere. The National Gardening Association estimates there are 90 million homes in the United States with a yard and garden. About 35 million are conventional gardeners and 5 million are organic gardeners. The remainder is a mix of hybrid gardeners and others who practice nontraditional forms of gardening. Late September and early October mark the beginning of the fall planting season in Southwest Florida, and local garden shops and nurseries are abuzz with excitement and anticipation. So this seems as good a time as any to pose the question that, in the minds of those not wedded to the soil, has never been answered with anything approaching precision: What is it with gardeners anyway?The peace of soilI love growing vegetables more than I love painting pictures, says Michael Vires, a well-regarded artist who lives in Punta Gorda and tends a home garden that currently yields watermelons. Artists and athletes often talk about being in a zone when things are going well. Painters actually call it the rush of the brush. It means that you absolutely lose yourself in what you are doing. You become one with the activity. There is nothing like that feeling. And I get that sort of exhilaration working in my garden. If I could garden full time and paint on the side, thats what I would do. Mr. Vires, then, understands what Mr. Harrison was getting at. Gardening can be a fulfilling, and, at times, primordial, experience that rivals other artistic expressions in its ability to satisfy mans creative impulses. My roots are in the foothills of Kentucky, Mr. Vires goes on. Working in the garden touches something deep within me, something that is a part of me. There also is a practical side to Mr. Viress gardening. His vegetables are grown organically, and as a result they taste like nothing you can find in a chain grocery, he says. Last year, he recalls, the snow peas were especially nice, and they never made it from vine to stovetop. I ate em raw, right out of the pod, Mr. Vires says. They were wonderful. We are so alienated from the natural world today, says Santiago De Choch, manager of the GreenMarket at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers. We move from cubicle to cubicle at work, always in a hurry. Gardening gives us an opportunity to slow down and spend some time in the natural world. I am always a happier person when Im in a garden. Mr. De Choch also has a company in Fort Myers called Green Coaches that helps people start and maintain gardens, and he witnesses firsthand the intense emotions the gardening experience evokes. Once you become interested in gardening, you find that taking care of the soil can be extremely rewarding, he says. It is a feeling of giving back to the earth. There is no doubt that there is a significant aesthetic component to gardening, says Eva Worden, coowner of Punta Gordas Worden Farm in Punta Gorda, which is an 85-acre organic farm that produces more than 50 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. For those who have an affinity, planting a tiny seed and watching it become a tomato plant, or whatever, is inspirational and humbling. And those who are involved with organic farming are upholding a philosophy of working with nature and not against it. That is no small thing. (Worden Farm hosts workshops on organic gardening, with one scheduled for Oct. 10. Reservations are required and can be made by phone at (941) 637-4874 or online at www.wordenfarm.com. The cost is $25 for farm members, $35 for non-members.)GARDENFrom page 1 George Harrison was a gardener first, musician second.

WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 NEWS A9 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com Dr. Worden adds: People ask why we tell all of our secrets (about gardening) to the public. The answer is simple. We would like everyone to be able to enjoy the wonderful experiences that we experience every day. It seems that gardening in presentday Southwest Florida is more about sustaining the gardener in ways that have little to do with simple hunger. And that is plainly evident at Eden Autism Services in Naples. Eden maintains an organic garden at 2101 County Barn Road. During October, November and December, Eden is offering classes (taught by John Puig, president of the Collier County Fruit Growers Association) in organic gardening, composting and other topics to the community at large. Information about the classes and their costs can be obtained by calling 992-4680. The primary purpose of the Garden at Eden, however, is not to educate the public. Rather, it is to enrich and enhance the lives of the centers autistic students and residents. Gardening is one activity that is accessible to almost everyone, at some level, according to Raquel Torres, a development specialist, at Eden. We try to create an environment that allows everyone to find their level of involvement, says Ms. Torres. Every child and every person has the ability to do something in the garden, even if it is just to dig a little in the dirt. This gives students the opportunity to learn at their own level. I personally get a lot of calls from parents who are very excited about what the garden offers for their children. The garden also affords the center an opportunity to stress the importance of proper nutrition in a way that transcends anything that could come from the pages of a textbook.Gardening turned upside-downOne must master the basics of preparing the soil and putting seed into the ground before one can reap the Zen-like benefits that gardening seems to convey. Mr. De Choch says education often is essential for gardeners to be successful. He notes that even many experienced gardeners who move to Southwest Florida (especially those who come from up north) are flummoxed by the vagaries and peculiarities of growing fruits and vegetables in the subtropics. For starters, he points out, the growing season in this part of the world is almost directly opposite of everywhere else. The prime growing season here runs from fall to spring. Late spring and summer are too hot and too wet to produce much in the way of edible crops. When other people are starting to harvest, we are beginning to plant, Mr. De Choch says. Additionally, there is the erroneous belief that Floridas sandy soil is unfit for gardening. On the contrary, Mr. De Choch says a startling variety of delights including tomatoes, all kinds of peppers, a wide variety of fruits, eggplant, Brussels sprouts, corn, spinach, lettuce, garlic, onions and a wide variety of herbs do well here. The trick is to prepare the soil properly, which includes infusing it with proper nutrients. County extension services are a good initial step for a gardener who is looking for information and guidance. We always welcome calls, says Cathy Feser, the urban horticulture educator with the University of Florida-Collier County Extension Service. She adds that gardeners can also find guidance by looking at their countys extension service website. Ms. Feser says that all prospective gardeners should be aware of four realities of planting in Southwest Florida. First, you need to realize that you are no longer up north, she says, and the seasons are reversed here. Also, there are more problems with the soil here, which means more problems with harmful nematodes and microscopic worms. Overwatering is a problem we see with new gardeners to the area. They dont understand that even when it doesnt rain, we have a high natural humidity. There is a lot of moisture in the air, even in the nonrainy season. And, of course, the warm weather means more insects. But none of these natural impediments, Ms. Feser says, should stop anyone from planting a garden. You just need to give it some thought, and perhaps get some advice, she says.Sustenance at a premiumIn addition to gardenings appeal to the senses, it also is beginning to interest those who have been hammered by the prolonged recession and are more interested in saving a buck than having a kumbaya moment in the radish patch. These are not prosperous times, says Stuart Miller, a retail supervisor at the nursery run by Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization, or ECHO, in North Fort Myers. For some, gardening is not as much a pastime as it is a necessity. They are planting because they want to grow something to eat. Betsy Hopkins, coordinator of the Community Garden of Lakes Park in Fort Myers, says she suspects that hard times have made the idea of community gardens more attractive. For $50, gardeners can lease a 4-foot by 8-foot raised garden bed at her community garden. Last year, 58 plots were leased, and the number has jumped to 72 this year, Ms. Hopkins says. There is some start-up cost involved in gardening, of course, Ms. Hopkins says, but buying produce can be very expensive. You can easily spend $20 in a week on produce at a store. And what you grow yourself is vastly superior to what you buy at most stores. Gardening endures because it the harvesting of food is encoded in our DNA and it also conveys so many simple pleasures to its hopelessly smitten adherents. Ms. Feser, the Collier County extension expert, probably speaks for many gardeners when she says that even the most mundane task takes on heightened significance and meaning when it is performed in ones own garden. Take weeding, for an example, she says. I love to go out and weed. It is instant gratification. When youre done, you stand up, and there is visual proof of a days work. That is very satisfying. These mindless tasks, done repetitively, are extremely therapeutic, she says. But not all gardening is created equal, she insists. Ms. Feser is an avid and enthusiastic ornamental gardener. A hodge-podge garden containing vegetables and fruits holds little allure for her. I am not a big vegetable gardener, she says. I mean, there is a lot of work involved in that, and the way I look at it, its easier to just run down to the store and buy them. Mr. Vires, the Punta Gorda artist, sees things differently. The act of raising at least part of ones own food and doing it in a sound environmental way is inspiring, he says. Sure, what you raise tastes better and is better for you nutritionally, but thats nothing compared to what it does for your soul.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 UNDERCOVER HISTORIAN Naples-on-the-Gulf would still be a rare and wonderful placeWhats in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Juliet, in Romeo and JulietMonica Whitty, a Ph.D. lecturer in cyber-psychology at Nottingham Trent University, believes that users of the online dating phenomenon could greatly benefit from a well-chosen screen name. In fact, she says, a good moniker can significantly increase ones chances of finding a partner. So perhaps marketers and Confucius are right: If names are not correct, language will not be in accordance with the truth of things. Do good screen names signify a truth of a person and as such attract accordingly? Could changing the name of the city of Naples to Naples-onthe-Gulf really protect the identity of the city and be in accordance with the truth of things? Whats in a name?Naples was founded in 1886 and named so because the area reminded its founders of a bay in Italy. On May 8, 1923, the new Collier County was formed (from a section of Lee County), and by Dec. 1, 1923, it was officially incorporated as a township. However, it wasnt until April 1925 that the Naples Town Council was formed so that the town could function as a municipal corporation under Florida law. While Naples was the towns birth name, its identity was connected to an entrepreneurial venture to bring a discerning resort development to Floridas final frontier. The venture was promoted by Walter Haldeman of Louisville, Ky., who was one of the countrys most noted newspaper publishers. An article in the March 30, 1925, Fort Myers News Press spoke of Naples-onthe-Gulf (so as not to confuse it with any other Naples) as more than a beauty spot it was a city. Advertisements in the paper claimed, Everybody should pay a visit to Naples to enjoy fishing from Naples pier, the Naples Hotel and the comforts provided by a lighting plant, laundry, new wells, golf course and new tennis courts.On May 28, 1949, the town of Naples became the city of Naples setting the line of demarcation for the surge into where it is today.And now 61 years later, City Councilman Gary Price has proposed an official names change for the city, to Naples-on-the-Gulf, a term that was used in promotional campaigns in the early 1900s and that is emblazoned on the official city seal.Once upon a timeNaples-on-the-Gulf in the early 1900s was promoting a defined area we now know as the historic district, which ranges from Ninth Avenue South to 13th Avenue South to the Gulf of Mexico to the east of Third Street South (more or less). This past week, while I was at Schmitt Jewelers on Fifth Avenue South getting a battery for my watch, I chatted with Adam Schmitt. He grew up here, and he told me he had been astounded to learn, in a previous Undercover Historian article, that the citys official historic district is so small. He told me he believed all of Old Naples constituted the historic district. Time stood still no, wait, that was my watch with its dead battery as I explained that while Old Naples visually and spatially dictates the boundaries of Naples five authentic areas, there is only one registered official historic district.The citys five authentic areas, in order of their birth, are: Historic Third Street South, Crayton Cove, the Waterfront Districts (Tin City and Bayfront areas), the 10th Street Design District and Fifth Avenue South. Place makingCouncilman Prices noble intentions were spirited by a brilliant Connectivity and Place Making Study that showed the capacity to connect these authentic business districts via walking routes and also to delineate the unique characteristics of these very different areas of our city areas that each captured in its own way the attention of captains of industry and notable citizens who made Naples one of the most sought-after destination in the world (Mother Nature did her part as well). No wonder Old Naples is called the goose that laid the golden egg. How could they have known that in 1886? By any another other name, Naples is still a rare and wonderful rose in the worlds garden.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 TO YOUR HEALTH HEALTHY LIVING The takeaway from the most recent meeting of our 24-member board of trustees, led by Chairman Joe Perkovich, was that NCH continues to succeed in providing quality health care, but that challenges of an uncertain economy still remain. Simply translated, this means we have continued to bolster the systems financial strength, even as our total admission numbers slightly declined over the past fiscal year. There are many reasons for the dropoff in admissions, including the levelingoff of population in Southwest Florida, more outpatient care and, we can hope, a healthier community. One of the goals of health care reform, of course, is to have better outcomes for patients, and not more volume or unnecessary care. So some of the admissions decline might reflect this. On the challenge side of the ledger, there is the issue of waste and inefficiency. Milliman Inc., an expert on health care quality and value, defines waste or inefficiency in the health care system as treatment that is unnecessary, redundant or ineffective and is contrary to, or not demonstrably associated with, health care quality and outcomes. Milliman estimates that the amount of waste in the U.S. health care system exceeds 25 percent of total health care spending, or about $600 billion in 2008. At NCH, we are striving to remove unnecessary steps as we care for patients. As an example, Dr. John Lewis, co-director of Team Health, one of our Emergency Room physicians and a board member, shared with us the recent success of our two ERs in getting patients from the front door to the physician. Two years ago, it took an ER patient, on average, more than two hours to first see a physician. Last year, through hard work and process redesign, the average waiting time had dropped to 35 minutes. Recently, the average ER waiting time has reached an all-time low of less than 15 minutes. Thats stupendous work from everyone involved, and it proves that we can reduce waste if we put our minds to it. Our challenge is to continue to redesign how we can eliminate waste and improve flow, so that we increase hospital efficiency and improve every patients experience. On the plus side, there is our steady climb in quality. Chief Medical Officer Dr. Aurora Estevez provided a comprehensive Quality Report update to the Board. One key component of the report that received endorsement from the board was the ratification for pursuing graduate medical education. Having internal medicine residents for three years on both campuses and in outpatient settings will add an element of excitement and continuing education at NCH. We already have a multitude of health care students stimulating everyone with their constant and probing questions, so pursuing graduate medical education here is a natural progression. Realistically, it will take about three years to see our first internal medicine residents. In general, the emphasis on quality at NCH helps keep all of us focused on our most critical mission: taking care of people. Our board seemed pleased with our progress, as am I. But we must constantly strive to improve. I have great confidence that the knowledge and initiative of our 3,200 associates will continue to keep us on track. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. NCH continues its efforts to reduce waste, inef ciency Th t k f th t t allenWEISS firstname.lastname@example.org Grief workshop at Avow HospiceAvow Hospice presents Opening the Heart to Grief, a nationally renowned workshop, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, at Ispiri, the community center on Avows campus in Naples.

Classes help breast cancer survivors move onMovin On, a six-week series of free, gentle exercise and movement classes for breast cancer survivors, STRAIGHT TALK Rockettes rock schedule, dietrigorous fitness SEE TO YOUR HEALTH, A25 Theyre tall, leggy and drop-dead gorgeous. What else would one expect out of two Radio City Music Hall Rockettes? Brittany Lents and Jenny Laroche are the epitome of beauty, fitness and health. They are not only stunning to look at, but they dance and execute high kicks with perfect precision like glitzy machines. Even though they make it look easy on stage, their talents require plenty of sweat. In fact, a rigorous fitness schedule coupled with healthy diets is what keeps these dancing beauties wowing audiences around the globe. Ms. Lents and Ms. Laroche recently explained their fitness regimen at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall where they will be performing with the Rockettes this season and shared some of their fitness secrets and dietary musts. The two Rockettes say that building stamina is key to staying healthy and performing well during season. They say their intense physical workouts mirror those of NFL players. Preseason, Ms. Lents and Ms. Laroche say they do cardio exercises such as running, jogging, swimming and of course, dancing. They work out at least five times a week on a regular basis. Ms. Lents has been a Rockette with the more than 75-year-old worldfamous dance troupe since 2002. Ms. Laroche has been with the Rockettes since 2008 and has TV credits in Ugly Betty and Without a Trace. During the off-season, Ms. Laroche does ballet, tap and jazz to stay in shape. But no matter what she does, cardio is always part of her life. I am definitely a runner, she said. Ms. Laroche, who lives in New York City takes scenic jogs around the area and incorporates that into her fitness routine. And Ms. Lents, a Boca Raton native, does Pilates and swimming for stamina. During show time, acts last as long as seven minutes non-stop. Both dancers adhere to a rigorous fitness routine during season, which includes rehearsals that run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. six days a week. Their individual training during this time includes massive cardio to build endurance, and some weight training.

I feel so strong during the season, she said. I feel like I am on top of the world. Staying on top of the world means staying in tune with your bodys needs and eating well. Ms. Lents suggests not working out when feeling tired and giving your body a break. And as far as food goes, that is perhaps the most key ingredient to staying healthy and fit, according to the dancers. Though both Ms. Lents and Ms. Laroche say they are not on strict diets, they are selective in choosing lean proteins and healthy carbohydrates for their fuel. Ms. Laroche enjoys chicken and pasta dishes and looks forward to a hearty breakfast of eggs, whole wheat, fruits and orange juice. I take my vitamins, she said. I keep my immune system up. Joint supplements were also mentioned for overall vitality. You need to look healthy on the inside, Ms. Lents said. Ms. Lents eats small meals during season. Her favorites include egg whites, oatmeal made from steel-cut oats, and bananas and apples for snacks. Ms.Lents is also a firm believer in eating organic foods. Her meals include grilled chicken breast and turkey burgers with brown rice. The Rockettes are adamant about not eating junk food except for the occasional treat. What you eat is what you feel, Ms. Laroche said. Good food and a whole lot of dancing are what make these two showstoppers stay in the pink of health.

That doesnt mean reassuring a frightened pet and rewarding the fear but rather changing the way the animal looks at what frightens him. Always keep the exposure below the threshold level at which the pet starts showing signs of anxiety yawning, drooling, scanning the room for escape routes, or changing to a body posture that lacks confidence, including ears back, licking lips. Build on your successes and go slowly. What if youre not having any successes? Get help. Ask your veterinarian to refer you to a professional pet behaviorist who can help you develop a good program, and may get your pet on medication to make the transition to a fear-free life easier. While it sounds odd to many pet lovers, a medication such as Prozac paired with a wellmanaged behavior modification plan helps many pets cope with modern life, either short-term or forever. Dont wait until its a crisis: Behavior problems are usually easier to resolve before theyve become well-established. The bottom line?

The answer is a program of what behaviorists call counter-conditioning Pets with fears are commonplace, and so, too, is confusion over how to deal with a frightened pet. While most people realize that punishing a pets fear will only make matters worse, they dont know how to turn that fear around. Thats understandable. After all, you cant reason with a frightened pet. You cant explain that thunderstorms or fireworks are just a lot of noise, or that veterinarians are working to help pets feel better. Pets who arent comfortable being handled, cant be exposed to new things or have learned to fear lifes regular stresses lead lives that are difficult for themselves and for their owners.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 NEWS A27 Theories are incommensurable: There is no way to compare theoretical accuracies. Each set of theoretical assumptions creates its own specialized language. Even attempts to use neutral language do not ameliorate the incommensurability of assumptions. Distinctive visions arise from assumptions grounded in perspectives that come before the linguistic labels. The development of the theories of vision itself is particularly intriguing. In the fifth century BCE, Empedocles posited that Aphrodite made the eye out of the four elements. When the fire in the eye shines out, he posited, it creates vision. Vision goes out from the eye.In the fourth century BCE, Aristotle continued to posit the elements, but theorized that an object seen altered the air medium between itself and the eye. Aristotle reversed Empedocles: Aristotle saw the object sending input to the eye, in distinction to Empedocles vision of eye fire moving out to create vision. The Middle Ages reversed the Aristotelian claim, and returned to Empedocles paradigm. In this theoretical moment the eye was seen sending emissions to objects. This allowed the occurrence of vision. As science moves into the brightness of empiricism, we find Descartes experimenting. He put an ox eye with innards scraped away on a window ledge, looked at the back of the eye (the retina), and saw an inverted image, formed from the focus of the eye lens on this retina. Now we have the beginning of the reign of intromission theory: Vision results from something representative of the outside object (light) entering the eye. Theories that claim the reverse, that visual perception is accomplished by rays of light emitted by the eye, are called emission or extramission theories. It is interesting to note that in 2002, a survey of U.S. college students indicated that half the students believed emission theory to be accurate. Is this merely scientific ignorance? Or does it reflect the work of Jeff Boyd and Lewis E. Little? In 1992, they wrote Theory of Elementary Waves. Their theory is a wonderful both/and synthesis. They suggest that elementary waves are flowing out from all phenomena. These waves from eyes trigger photon emission from external objects. These photon emissions follow the waves back into the eye. In this theory there is a give and take between object and eye, a meeting of elementary waves going out and photons coming in. Jeff Boyd suggests that we can pick our poison: We can choose either the peculiar or the weird. In the weird intromission only model, we are seeing via electrons that have no trajectory, only probability. This physics becomes mathematical, divorced from reality. In the peculiar model he proposes, we must accept that elementary waves are emitted continuously from all points. Perhaps we are closer to getting a more birds eye perspective than we realize. The UFO and Nukes Press Conference met in Washington this past September. Many retired military claim that UFOs have been watching nuclear weapon test sites and storage areas. Independently they claim vision of silent disc shaped red centered eye-like Will you fly me away? Take me away with you, my love. Annie LittleIn 1962, Thomas Kuhn wrote an amazing book: The Structure of Scientific Revolution. In it he presented science in flux, continually developing and making leaps of understanding which he termed paradigm shifts. He underscored that our perceptions are based upon our conceptions: What we see, we see because we expect to see it. To move beyond the usual, the expected, requires intense wrestling over time with persistent and insistent anomalies that defy the common vision. This is simply illustrated in the MullerLyer visual illusion. In this illusion, parallel lines of equal length have arrows on their ends, pointing either in or out. The lines with the outward pointing arrows look longer. This continues to be true even after the trick of the illusion is pointed out. When this illusion is presented to people from rectangular cultural contexts (urban and developed), the illusionary effect is more easily seen and less easily unseen. Those from cultures with less experience in lines and edges (jungle-dwellers, for instance) are not so easily tricked. They do not have concepts that curtail their seeing. MUSINGS n E i t t D Rx email@example.com Visionarypulsing phenomena. The former Air Force Captain Robert Salas, author of Faded Giant, a book that examines societys right to be informed of UFO sightings, was the only one present to raise his hand in affirmation to the question: Should the U.S. get rid of nukes? We can also note the position taken by Stephen Hawking. The almost completely paralyzed British astrophysicist advises that earthlings be wary of contact with aliens. Perhaps he is remembering European contact with Native Americans. Who is the dangerous one?A visionary can be defined as one who sees what is not. Or as one who sees what is not yet. How can we distinguish unreal illusion from prophetic foresight? Michael Polanyi characterizes all knowing as personal: We think differently, speak in a different language and live in different worlds. Perhaps we must begin with a piece of medieval vision. Anselm of Canterbury wrote Credo ut intelligam : I believe so that I may understand. Vision within meets vision without: Mission both intro and extra. In the spaciousness of mind I can favor a story as well as concede uncertainty, and I can be willing to dance change in the embrace of new data.

BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES BUSINESS INDUSTRY BSECTIONWEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 WEEK at-a-glanceLeading the way See who helped kick off The Class of 2011 for Leadership Collier. B8 On the moveMake it your business to know whos going where, doing what on the local workplace. B4 Industry excellenceCBIA hands out its 2010 Sand Dollar Awards. B9 Fit for businessJeff Gerardo is 198 pounds of worldclass power-lifting talent, about 197 pounds of it muscle he will employ next month in a bid to bench press 650 pounds, more than any other weightlifter in the world. But the other pound is his savvy business brain, arguably the most muscular organ he has. As the recession began to pick up speed in late 2007, Mr. Gerardo, married and with a young child, power lifted the biggest economic risk of his life. He put his house on the line to finance and open his business, Fit Forever, in the upscale residential community of Mediterra in North Naples. Like two other locally owned fitness clubs in Southwest Florida that have been unbowed by the recession Ed Ryans popular Gateway creation, Fort Myers Fitness, and chiropractor Kevin Van Nostrands elaborate Punta Gorda Tennis and Fitness Club Fit Forever offers the owners own high-wattage, on-site attention to detail. That comes with his good cheer and pumped-up knowledge (he holds a bachelors degree in sports and fitness management and is chasing a masters in business), along with a broad wide palette of colorfully cast training options for the wide range of men and women who can benefit from them. Everything here is an extension of me, Mr. Gerardo explains. And here is no longer just Mediterra, but also eight other fitness clubs in residential communities that have allowed Mr. Gerardo, 37, to come in with his Fit Forever program in the role of a subcontractor, offering the same or better services for less money, he says. He also has a contract with a waste disposal company to help keep its employees fit and thus hold down the costs of injury. Although he had worked at Mediterras corporate-owned fitness club more than two years as a trainer, the communitys overseers had decided to close and rehab the facility, which would have put him out of work for six months. For Mr. Gerardo, apparently, necessity is the mother of invention. I thought, I can either sit on my tail and let the economy control me, or go out there, market myself and what I believe, and expand a company. And now Im in control of my own destiny, he says. Which reflects the attitudes of both Mr. Ryan and Dr. Van Nostrand. Although their business plans and clubs are very different in size and scope, each has succeeded in recent years by designing creative and relatively lowcost options for their clients, and by working hard to share their considerable experience and expertise.SEE FIT, B5 How three SWF entrepreneurs keep their fitness centers in shapeBY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYJeff Gerardo, right, encourages fellow trainer Chris Edwards at Fit Forever, the fitness center Mr. Gerardo owns in Mediterra.

Everyone will know 12 months from now whether Wall Streets upswing is the harbinger of a rebounding economy or a bear in bulls clothing. Within a year, the economic fate of Ireland and other challenged European countries will be known. A much-anticipated round of Federal quantitative easing, or QE II might already be in full force, the 2010 elections will have weighed in. And by then, the uncertainty that pervades the market will have become something else. Until then, it is Vegas betting whether the recent rally is really a still-intact bull market (that has finished its recent, several-month-long correction) or just a rally within the bear market that began in 2008. Despite the invitation the market extended with promises of big money to be made, few investors are coming to the fall 2010 equity party, as volume is not confirming the rally. A simple chart of volume shows no up days having breakout volume. The big volume has been on down or loss days. For investors who rely on fundamental analysis, price and volume are less important than reading the economic tea leaves. In their mindset, forget the trend lines and retracements and moving averages and just focus on economic statistics. In the land of fundamentals, it is important to keep ones eye on the big picture. Small facts shouldnt be disregarded, but they should be viewed as tiles within a complex mosaic. For seeing the big picture, there is no better tool than studying the Gross Domestic Product formula to see whats cooking. The recipe uses only a few ingredients: Consumption plus Business Investment plus Government Spending plus Net Exports equals Gross Domestic Product or, short form, C+I+G+Net X=GDP Within that equation, which is the most significant? The U.S. has no net exports, and the U.S. large net import position actually drags down GDP. In absolute dollar terms, consumption is the biggest, accounting for about 67 percent of GDP. Its hard to deny the importance of the U.S. consumer in our economy. Non-discretionary consumption gets spent; possibly delayed, modified and or cost-controlled but it eventually does get spent. Discretionary spending can get delayed for a long time and the longer it is delayed, the more likely it changes the spending habits of the consumer. For instance, a consumer who delays purchase of a new car for 12 months may find himself in a permanent change of mind: new becomes excessive, unnecessary and not in vogue with an emergent sense of thrift. The Consumer Confidence Index, reported monthly, fell again in August. This is despite a stock rally since the beginning of July. Consumer attitudes toward buying cars dropped to a 21-month low. There was a marked increase in survey respondents saying it was a bad time to buy a new car and, while somewhat unchanged, the 41 percent of respondents said the government is doing a bad job versus the 16 percent who said it was doing a good job. Recalcitrant consumers have detracted from the GDP equation. The government however, has done the opposite. The government has tried to pull rabbits out of its hat with quantitative easing without finding much success. There has been little to no multiplier effect from its monetary easing or deficit financed recovery projects. On the monetary side, QE II is on the horizon but there are plenty of economists and a retired Federal Reserve vice chairman who question whether QE II will work. Why? Because, to date, the increased bank reserves which zoomed to zeniths didnt increase the demand for goods and services. There is a disconnect in the equation: banks with the money arent lending and the velocity of money has been dropping. (Money supply times velocity equals price time quantity or GDP.) On the fiscal side, the government is still running huge deficits even absent a new round of special programs. The sale of treasuries is used to finance the deficit. China, Japan and countries with large U.S. net trade surpluses are large purchasers of these treasuries. The Federal Reserve itself is also a buyer. The Federal Open Market Committee on Aug. 10 announced its intent to buy treasuries to replace the maturing mortgages that it held. The talk in financial circles has been that the Fed would buy up to $1 trillion of U.S. Treasuries to fund the growing deficit. So now golds most recent price surge is understood. Now the weakening dollar and rising U.S. equity market are partially understood. Private sector business is going quite well. Overall earnings projections are very good and, besides making money, businesses are sitting on trillions of cash. Business investment, which unquestionably is needed to jettison the economy, is known to be very sensitive to government policies, especially taxation and mandated programs such as health care. Businesses are sitting on trillions in cash and they are watching the upcoming elections with the perception among many that Republican gains will be welcomed as a pro-business. Results in November could lead to increases in non-governmental jobs. Those who are collecting and analyzing all these fundamental facts are also looking at the reality that huge amounts of capital has been pulled from the U.S. equity markets by the individual investor and a huge amount of money has been put into bond markets. It is estimated that some $250 billion was pulled from equities and $600 billion invested in bonds, all since 2008. And pensions are also holding lower equity levels. At this stage, most fundamental investors cant say whether or not this certainly is a bull market. Sometimes, it is so much easier to be technical in analysis and to skip thinking about all the many factors that form a fundamental opinion.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 BUSINESS B5 Mr. Ryan, for example, decided to keep the scope of his business small, rather than opening other clubs, so he could be there all the time, keep employee costs down and rely on himself. When he used $100,000 to start the club seven years ago, competition in the Gateway area was rare. But then things got tough, he recalls. And Mr. Ryan, a fit and articulate 45-year-old with a dry, sometimes pointed sense of humor (Never let a fat guy teach you fitness is one of his edicts), got going. About the time Mr. Gerardo was putting his cards on the table at Mediterra, Mr. Ryan began offering morning and evening boot camp classes of eight weeks in duration, along with free child care. Bboot camp is one of the things that saved us, he admits. Men and women can arrive at one level in life and leave at another, more satisfying one, he explains. They get here saying, This is what I weigh now, this is how I look now, this is my pant size or my dress size now. And this is where I want to be. And they can get there. Mr. Ryan helps them by offering a variety of activities over the eightweek period, keeping his classes both interesting and beneficial. People get to like each other, and clearly they like and trust him. So why not expand since the formula works? I always flirted with doing other locations in other cities, but when the economy started to get tougher out there, I spent more and more time here, he says. I can control this. The 7,500-square-foot club has all the amenities and elaborate equipment expected of state-of-the-art gyms. But the thing you find out, he says, echoing Mr. Gerardo, is that people want more that just an exercise plan or (fancy fitness machines). You have to be a little entertaining. You have to show some personality. And you have to have knowledge. Not only is Dr. Van Nostrand, 35, a chiropractor who worked six years in Holland, practicing his profession among some of the most sophisticated medical practitioners in the world, hes also extraordinarily fit, like Mr. Gerardo and Mr. Ryan. A distance runner, he did a half-marathon (13 miles) last week in his bare feet, a form of running he espouses. When he bought his 18,000-squarefoot club in Punta Gorda in 2008, his friends and advisors told him not to. Now hes expanded the business by 40 percent, he says, bringing his employee total to 36, hosting a Smoothie King franchise and introducing a variety of recession-proof fee schedules and benefits. He blames his success on his staff. If it wasnt for a staff who backed all my ideas regardless of how corny and funny they sound at first, I wouldnt be anywhere, he says. The club also has tennis facilities, locker rooms and showers, free weights and weight machines, treadmills, elliptical machines and something called Kinesis, a techno-gym out of Italy, with this wall where people do free exercise with resistance, in all types, he explains. Beginning in mid-November, he will also offer four months of free club use to 100 new applicants wishing to participate in a research study he is conducting, aimed at more precisely defining the correlation between diet and exercise. Well do a body-age assessment, analyze their body with computers and measurements, and try to improve their body-age assessment every quarter. We want to see how many people change, he says. There appear to be no regrets on the part of these fit entrepreneurs. If you dont have your own business and the freedom of that, its hard for some people to understand how different it is than punching a clock, notes Mr. Ryan. Mr. Gerardo puts it like this: The generation of my parents said, Hey, you gotta work for a company and get your 401k blah, blah, blah but Id rather be in control of my own destiny.

THE MOTLEY FOOL At The Motley Fool, we dont like most annuities. Their typically high fees and low returns mean that the folks selling them, not the customers they supposedly serve, end up making a lot of money. An annuity is a contract between you and (usually) an insurance company. In exchange for a big chunk of cash today, the insurance company agrees to pay you an income for a specified period, which can be a certain number of years or the rest of your life. Here are three broad categories of annuities: The ugly: equity indexed annuities. These are notorious salesman-enrichers. Promising a guaranteed rate of return based on the performance of an index, the fine print reveals that your return will be several percentage points lower than the indexs. Worse, the return is often capped. When the S&P 500 has a big year like 2009, in which it gained 26 percent, you might be looking at no more than a 10 percent return. And thats before ridiculous fees. A well-built portfolio of stocks should The Good, Bad and Ugly 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. Funds vs. StocksQ My portfolio is diversified across several mutual funds. Id like to invest in individual stocks, too. Is there added value in that? B.M., Hartford, Conn.AIts good to be diversified, but many mutual funds are more diversified than necessary, often invested in several hundred different securities. (And many mutual funds are very similar to each other, offering more duplication than diversification.) An advantage to putting a chunk of your money into individual stocks is that if a stock appreciates in value, it will make a significant difference in your portfolio. For example, if you park 5 percent of your moolah in Fingernail-on-Blackboard Car Alarm Co. (ticker: AIEEEE) and it doubles, your portfolios value will increase by 5 percent. If you instead own the stock through a mutual fund, where it represents a fraction of a percent of the funds value, its advance will be less perceptible. Of course, when selecting your own stocks, you need to know what youre doing. If you dont, its smart to opt for funds managed by effective pros or index funds that automatically mirror the stock markets performance.

Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enricheasily trounce this tax-disadvantaged boondoggle of a product. The bad: variable annuities. These generally sport high fees, iffy returns and brutal surrender charges if you need your money back. There some tax advantages, but they rarely compensate for the downsides. The sometimes-good: lifetime income annuities. These are basic, classic annuities you hand over a lump sum and get a specified income for the rest of your life. The best ones offer cost-effective insurance against outliving your money. Theyre worth serious consideration if youre near retirement and your nest egg isnt as big as youd like. Even if you think your nest egg is big enough, if youre concerned about managing an investment portfolio while youre retired and dont want to be dependent on an adviser, a lifetime income annuity can make some sense. There are trade-offs, but they may be worth the peace of mind. If youre considering this option, seek low-fee offerings backed by highly rated insurers. Well offer more details next week. My dumbest moves have always been selling companies I strongly believed in and keeping the less successful ones. I bought shares of Amazon.com around $38 at the end of 2004 and sold them at $40 two years later, on the advice of an investment consultant who thought the company was too risky. Impressed by his credentials and conscious of my own ignorance, I ignored my inner conviction. I bought in again in 2008 at $75 but sold half my shares a year later. That was a stupid move, as I could have sold many others instead. L.D., onlineThe Fool Responds: Good thing you hung onto some of your shares! Amazon, a Motley Fool Stock Advisor recommendation, has recently been trading above $140. Some people like to sell part of their stake in a company after they make a certain profit, such as earning back their initial investment. They then view the remaining shares as gravy. The Motley Fool TakeGrowth stocks are exciting, but before you jump into one, look for real, numerically relevant signs of sustainability. Consider Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), maker of popular console games such as Guitar Hero and Call of Duty, and owner of World of Warcraft. Its been a great business for years. So good, in fact, that it has more than tripled in value since Fool co-founder David Gardner recommended it in our Motley Fool Stock Advisor newsletter.

If the Beatles and the Stones gave birth to a musical baby, it would probably sound a lot like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Gritty and authentic, this trio plays unapologetic rock n roll that seems to encompass much of the music that came decades before. In addition to nods to blues-based rock and creatively produced melodic songs, the group has elements of psychedelic rock, folk and punk. As their press release says, their sound comes from everywhere and nowhere it draws a map and embarks on a sonic trip through American music; from howling front porch stomps on the Chattanooga and beer-sloshing Texas roadhouse rockouts, to swaggering protopunk sneering in NYCs basement bars. Or, as founding member Robert Levon Been (bass, guitar, vocals, piano) says, Pretty much our band is a culmination of British and American elements fighting for the same real estate. The blues part, early R&B and soul stuff and country, thats come in more recently All the rest was from growing up, being in high school, NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE CSECTIONWEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010WEEK at-a-glanceWrite on!Two winners of Florida Weeklys writing challenge will go to Sanibel conference.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 I recently started a new job, and the commute is a royal pain in the neck. A coworker overheard me complaining about the drive and offered to carpool. I pass by your house every day, he said. Why dont I just pick you up? I couldnt believe my good fortune and my new colleagues generosity. I offered to pay him for gas, but he held up a hand in protest. Im grateful, but also a bit skeptical. Nothing is free in this world. Case in point. My friend Sarah once invited me out to dinner, assuring me that her friend Serge had offered to pay for us both. It felt like a weird arrangement, a quasi-date between the three of us, but I was young and broke and glad to be taken out to eat. When the end of the evening came, though, Serge wanted his just rewards. He took Sarah aside as we waited for a cab in front of the restaurant. And now? he said. Youre both coming home with me? Sarah just laughed. Serge scowled and stomped off down the sidewalk. I understand that in exchanges between men and women generosity is a pretense, and I know that for my morning commute I owe my co-worker something. But the question is, what? And who defines Between men and women, nothing is free ArtisHENDERSON email@example.com the terms of the exchange? On our third day of carpooling, I stepped into his car and settled in my seat. When a Man Loves a Woman played on the stereo. We drove for several miles without talking. How was your evening? he finally asked. Did you sleep well? I nodded and said I did. He launched into a story about his in-laws visiting from out-of-town. For emphasis, he patted my leg at key points in the story; sometimes he let his hand stay a second too long. I sensed that this was crossing some boundary of propriety. We are not friends, after all, only co-workers who share a ride. But I was hesitant to say anything. I had a good thing going, and I wondered if letting him cop a brief feel wasnt fair payment for the twice-a-day car service. Of course, its a slippery slope. One day this week, the same coworker wandered over to my desk during his coffee break. He took a sip from his mug and peered at me over the rim. I smiled politely and continued tapping at my keyboard. He bent down to rub his knees. My joints are really aching today, he said. I nodded, still looking at my computer.I havent played any sports for some time, he continued. He took another sip of coffee. And, you know, I havent made love in a while.Involuntarily, I looked up. He SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSraised his eyebrows and turned the corners of his mouth up in a grin. And there it was: My limit. The conversation had crossed the line I had mentally set at the beginning of our arrangement. I was repulsed by his boldness, angered by his flagrant sleaziness, and I thought about telling him to go to hell. But what could I do? I needed a ride home. ...I wondered if letting him cop a brief feel wasnt fair payment for the twicea-day car service... l i ng I in my o man o r sev f inal ly u n c h e d v isitin g h e p at stor y; s econ d r ossin g r e not w ho s a y ng o p o r k k a t ly y h is a y, he mp uter r som e h er si p v ent e r th a co nv had m o ur ar I w a n g e r an d I t to h el l.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 take on I Do! I Do! and are appropriately paired with husband-and-wife directing team Dawn Lebrecht Fornara and Charles Fornara. The foursome is out to prove that marriage requires hard work, but that the strength of a happy union is a force to be reckoned with. A conversation with the McKerrows sheds light on their roles and on their reallife relationship. >> FW: Does being married make it easier or more of a challenge to play your roles in I Do! I Do!? You obviously have a very definite concept of a married relationship, being that you are in one together every day. Is it difficult to stray from the concepts you already have in order to portray Michael and Agnes? >> Mary Anne: We actually wont have to deviate much. The characters development is really at the discretion of the actors, for this show. For the most part, Michael and Agnes lend themselves easily to our own experiences as a couple. We do have to invent somewhat, however. Weve been married 18 years, which means that about three-fifths of the experiences Michael and Agnes have had, we havent. >> John: We havent grown old together and we dont have any children. >> Mary Anne: Weve never spawned (laughs) but our young niece Amber lives with us, so that helps. Its given us some parenting experience to draw from. I havent had some of the feelings that come with a long-term commitment like the one Michael and Agnes have. I havent woken up one morning and realized, Oh, my God. Ive been someones wife for 40 years. What am I doing with my life? I dont feel like that. >> FW: Have you ever played husband and wife before? >> John: No. Although weve been in many shows together, weve never played a couple and weve only played opposite one another one other time (in Little Shop of Horrors, as Audrey and Seymour). >> Mary Anne: Last summer, I played his stepmother in Thoroughly Modern Millie.>> FW: So are the Snows really all that different from yourselves? >> John: No.>> Mary Anne: I can totally see myself calling him a pompous ass like Agnes does to Michael! But at some point in the show, I stop being Mary Anne. Obviously, when I get to experiences that I havent had yet, I have to start creating. And Ill definitely cry. Ill cry every night At one point, Agnes goes through a box of old photos and realizes the disparity between the parts of her life depicted and her current stage in life. Its very moving.>> John: Its something everyone can relate to, married or not. Its a universal human experience, observing the passage of time. We pull from our own experiences and use them to predict what it would be like to be John and Mary Anne as Agnes and Michael moving through 30, 40 and 50 years of marriage.>> FW: The concept of marriage as portrayed in the show is said to be a bit archaic. Do you think so? Are there still some of these traditional elements alive, or is the show more like a snapshot of an older time? Have things changed all that much?>> Mary Anne: Most of the shows points are extremely relevant, but certain elements do date it (to the turn of the century). Like the song Flaming Agnes, where Agnes asserts her independence and strength as a woman by wearing a gaudy hat. Thats not so much of a statement these days. But it works. >> John: Many of our audiences will consist of couples and individuals who were married in the time of Michael and Agnes, and so for them it will be easy to relate. For everyone, though, the show highlights the things about the union of marriage that havent changed. >> FW: Michael and Agnes seem to depend on a sense of humor to get them through the ups and downs of marriage. Do you? Have you had any specific moments like those in the lives of Agnes and Michael that you pull from to create your characters? >> Mary Anne: Oh, yes, definitely! You have to laugh. Im a laugher but I wouldnt wear cold cream to bed, like Agnes. I would wear make-up, though. When we lived in New York, I used to wear make-up to bed because we lived on the sixth floor and no firefighter would climb up to the sixth floor to rescue an unmade-up person! Its a fact. Its been sort of an ongoing joke between us. >> John: Id carry you down, honey. >> Mary Anne: Sure you would! Yes, we like to laugh. >> John: Michael finds it comical to carry his wife around, too. As he creeps up to very advanced years, he still insists on carrying Agnes around. He carries her over the threshold as they leave their bedroom for the last time. Its meant to be comical of course, that will only work if hes REALLY old! I DOFrom page 1Auditions are coming up for two productions in The Naples Players winter 2011 season. Try-outs for A.R. Gurneys Sylvia will be from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16. The playwright, long known for his treatments of Wasps in the Northeast, takes a different approach in this delightful comedy about men, women, middle age and the animal kingdom. Sylvia, a dog, is played by a girl, just the thing to create an eternal triangle between a man and his wife. The New York Times said Sylvia is for anyone who ever owned a dog, loved a dog, wanted to wring a dogs neck or wished the dog would take a long weekend. Directed by Megan McCombs, The Naples Players production of Sylvia will be presented Jan. 12-Feb. 5. The script calls for two women: Sylvia, aged 20-30, and the middle-aged wife; and for two men, one of whom plays the husband and a second who plays a number of roles of varying genders. Auditions for The Art of Murder will be from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30. The mystery by Joe DiPietro, which received the Edgar Award for Best Mystery Play, takes a witty look at talent vs. commerce and plot vs. counterplot in the world of art. The Art of Murder will be presented Feb. 2-26, directed by Theresa Bill. The cast consists of two men ages 30-55, a successful artist and his art dealer; and two women of the same ages, the artists wife and their housekeeper. No appointments are necessary for the open auditions, and everyone who is interested in community theatre is welcome. Auditions take place at the Sugden Community Theatre. Perusal scripts are available now at the box office for 72 hours with a $20 deposit. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 434-7340, ext. 10. The best of contemporary cinema returns to downtown Naples when The Naples Players Films on Fifth series begins a new season on Sunday, Oct. 17.

Sunday, Nov. 14: Everlasting Moments (Sweden), a Golden Glove Best Foreign Film nominee In an exercise in Old World nostalgia, director Jan Troell looks at a time of change in the early 20th century through the eyes of a young woman. Maria wins a camera in a lottery, and photography empowers her through a difficult life. Sunday, Dec. 12: Summer Hours (France), winner of awards from the L.A. Film Critics and the New York Film Critics This touching drama follows adult siblings who are confronting the value of their memories, as their elderly mother summons them and charges them with deciding the fate of her extraordinary art collection. Sunday, Jan. 16: Revanche (Austria), an R-rated thriller In Vienna, excon Alex plans to flee to the south with his girl, Ukranian prostitute Tamara, after a robbery; the fallout to his plan connects many characters in a surprising fashion. The Guardian praised Revanche for its distinctive sort of European hardcore sheen. Sunday, Feb. 12: You, the Living (Sweden), an absurdist masterpiece In a series of 50 interconnected vignettes, filmmaker Roy Anderson explores the complexity of the human condition. Reviewer Roger Ebert calls it a comedy with a twist of the knife. Sunday, March 13: TBA. Films on Fifth is sponsored in part by Karen Van Arsdale of Premier Properties.

Waterfront Dining Friday, Sunday Saturday, TWO 1 pound lobsters with Lunch, Dinner & Sunday Brunch 263-9940 263-2734 www.napleswaterfrontdining.com fries and slaw or black beans and rice Not good with any other offer. Expires 11/4/10. $24.95 The great thing about vacations besides seeing friends and family, getting away from Floridas punishing humidity and just in general Getting Away is the opportunity to see newspapers in other cities. I realize I might be in the minority with that opinion. Some people dont even read their hometown newspaper. At Florida Weekly, we have a table where we put papers from different cities we visit Denver, Phoenix, New York. Were curious to see what other journalists and papers are doing in other parts of the country. It doesnt matter that we dont live in those cities. It doesnt matter that we wont get to attend any of the concerts or art shows we read about. Were just curious about the world around us and want to know more. The world is so much bigger than our little sandy, swampy patch of real estate. Maybe its because Im a word person, or because Im in the industry, but when I visit a town, I buy the paper. When Im waiting somewhere for a connecting flight, I pick up whatever local papers I can and peruse them. I know some will inevitably tell me I can go online anytime and see those newspapers. Theyre wrong. I might be able to see a newspapers website, but thats different than seeing the actual paper itself. When you hold a newspaper in your hands, you not only enjoy a tactile experience, but you see how the paper is laid out, what stories go where, the different typefaces used in headlines, the photos and graphics. And in reading that paper, you learn about its city or towns cultural life. Many times, I admit, I grow envious when I see what theater/music/dance/ bands are playing in other cities. I grew up in New York City, a place that offers myriad options for entertainment every day. And while there are always some middle-of-the-road acts, those are more the exception, not the rule, as they tend to be here. Clubs, theaters, performance halls and other venues here in Southwest Florida like to play it safe. Safe and bland. Sometimes Im tempted not to catch my connecting flight and just stay in the city that seems to offer such interesting acts. Years ago, traveling around the country meant getting to hear different radio stations each place had its own distinct sound, and you could tell where you were by the music on the local station. Philly sounded different than Detroit, which sounded different than New York or San Francisco. But now, radio stations dont have the individual personalities they used to possess, and it pretty much all sounds the same. You could say the same for newspapers now, too. In order to cut costs and keep those profits as high as they possibly can for the shareholders, newspaper companies are doing more with less. Which means theyve cut reporters positions and now run the same articles in the various papers they own around the country. You pick up different newspapers and wind up reading the same articles, experiencing an odd feeling of dj vu. Newspapers nowadays are like teenagers in high school, trying to be just like each other, rather than being true to themselves. And now, sadly, even the print versions are trying to look like websites, with large graphics, shorter stories. Style over substance. At Chicagos OHare International Airport, I was surprised to see the Chicago Tribune a paper for which I freelanced for nearly 10 years now in a tabloid format. It was disconcerting; its rival is a tabloid, but I always knew the Tribune as a broadsheet. It just didnt seem the same. I learned that it changed its format in January 2009 for newsstands and paper boxes, thinking it would make more people buy it. (Subscribers still get the broadsheet format.) In Hartford, Conn., I purchased a copy of The Hartford Courant. I really like that paper; its always had a progressive format and very creative graphics and layout. I was disappointed to see its layout, too, has changed. And the paper seemed a shadow of itself it was so thin. And that was before I realized that I had inadvertently picked up two copies of the same issue, thinking I was just buying one! I tried to buy a copy of The Boston Globe at Harfords Bradley International Airport. The Globe is one of my favorite papers. Its so well written, Ill even read the sports and business sections. But the newsstand man told me some kind of distribution or delivery problem keeps him from being able to sell it. He recommended I go online to read it. I told him it wasnt the same thing. But he just shrugged thats how he reads it. I was disappointed. But I did get to see one of those more idiosyncratic papers still in print. Its the Lincoln County News, a mid-coastal Maine weekly. First of all, theres the size 16 inches by 23 inches. Thats huge for a newspaper, especially in todays culture. The News is even bigger than the New York Times was, back when the New York Times was well, bigger.Its unwieldly, especially if youre used to todays smaller papers. But no ones reading The Lincoln County News on a subway or public bus; no ones worrying about not having the room to stretch out the paper to its full width.Its chock-full of local news: local politics, local churches, local businesses, local schools. Its quaint. But then, after all, this is a paper sold in a town that has an honest-to-goodness swimming hole, and whose library still has a card catalog (in addition to computers). I wouldnt rely on it for all of my news, but the Lincoln County News is entertaining to read, and a good way to keep up on things in that area of Maine. Its a small town newspaper thats physically big. One of the newest catchphrases in newspapers nowadays is hyper-local. I hate that word, because for most newspapers it means: Lets be as cheap as possible and just focus on our own little neighborhood. Lets not look at the big picture or tackle large topics or be adventurous. Lets think as small as possible instead of thinking big. To me, its a xenophobic attitude. (Yet, paradoxically, while papers are urging their reporters to be hyper-local, theyre also turning into clones of each other.) Thats part of the reason I like to travel, and its part of the reason I went into journalism as a profession: The world is so much bigger than we acknowledge. Shouldnt our newspapers be the same, stretching and growing, instead of shrinking? ARTS COMMENTARY Following the paper trail NancySTETSON firstname.lastname@example.org
FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 C9 GIVING The Immokalee Foundations 2010 Charity Classic Dinner & Auction will offer more than a silent auction and a delicious dinner. It will provide guests the chance to change the course of a childs future and underwrite a once-ina-lifetime experience. How about funding a college education? Sending a child to a New England summer camp? Raising a childs reading level and changing his or her academic future? The theme of this years event is Dream. Believe. Experience. The Immokalee Foundation wants guests to take that personally. Weve created Fund A Dream, which will enable generous donors to give to programs that directly assist a child, says Louise Penta, event chair and TIF board member. All of the funds raised through Fund A Dream will go directly to children, and contributions are 100 percent tax deductible, she adds. One of the most exciting opportunities is the chance to provide a child with a fouryear college education. Fund A Dream gives you the chance to send a child to college for only $6,500, Ms. Penta says. Its unbelievable, but true. Thanks to a state match, a $6,500 contribution will send an Immokalee High School graduate to a Florida state college or university for four years. The students who receive these scholarships have a strong relationship with TIF. Mentors work with each student from seventh grade throughout high school and college to give them the support they need to be a success. And believe me, it works, Ms. Penta says.TIF board members Don Gunther and Dick Stonesifer are so excited about these opportunities that they will help the auctioneer at the charity event inspire guests to donate dreams and become dream-makers.Students in Immokalee dont have a lot of advantages. Many of the kids in Immokalee have never gone to the movies, seen a baseball game or visited an art gallery, Mr. Stonesifer says. There is no movie theatre, bowling alley or skating rink in Immokalee. The Fund A Dream program can directly impact their lives. Fund A Dream opportunities include: Sponsor a reader: For $650, a child in Immokalee can receive literacy training for a year through the Immokalee Readers program. The money covers tutoring, curriculum, books and special activities aimed at raising a childs reading level. Summer camp: Send one of Immokalees children to camp next summer for $3,000 a gift that covers two full weeks at prestigious New England camps in Maine and New Hampshire. Students who participated in camps this past summer had life-changing experiences. Jessalyn Walker attended the New Hampshire camp and didnt expect it to be so much fun. I water-skied, played Lacrosse and biked up a mountain, she says. But my favorite part was meeting people from all over the world. Field trips: A $1,000 donation will allow Immokalee children to take field trips to places many have never been, including the Philharmonic Center for the Arts, The Edison-Ford Winter Estates or a movie theater, roller skating rink or bowling alley. Presidents and astronauts in the making: $2,000 will allow a child to visit Washington, D.C., or eight students to take an overnight trip to the Kennedy Space Center. The trips include transportation, meals, room-and-board and guided tours. Additional highlights of the charity event include dinner presented by the chefs of The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, live and silent auctions and music, entertainment and dancing by Motown Madness. Presenting sponsor for the Charity Classic Dinner & Auction is The Johnson Meland Group-Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. Founding corporate sponsor is Fifth Third Bank. Corporate matching sponsor is GE Foundation. Corporate media sponsor is Naples Illustrated. Gold sponsors include Bigham Jewelers, Jaguar Naples and Porsche of Naples. Sponsorship opportunities remain available. Since 1991, The Immokalee Foundation has been empowering its children through education. The foundation has helped hundreds of students by providing a range of programs that focus on mentorship, afterschool activities, college scholarships, the development of vocational skills and incentives for educational growth. Last years Charity Classic Dinner & Auction and Pro-Am Golf Tournament raised more than $1 million to fund these organizational programs.

At least, she acts, walks and talks like a girl. For those who want a bit more from their vampire movies than what Twilight offers, this intense, quiet drama is appropriately dark and always compelling. Its a remake of the 2008 Swedish film Let The Right One In. Rated R.Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (Shia LaBeouf, Michael Douglas, Carey Mulligan) Set in 2008, Gordon Gekko (Mr. Douglas, reprising his Oscar-winning role from Wall Street) sees the financial crisis coming as he befriends a young trader named Jake (Mr. LaBeouf), who just happens to be engaged to his daughter (Ms. Mulligan). Its fun to see Gekko again, but writer/director Oliver Stones plot gets a bit distracted with commentary on the financial fallout when it should be focused on the story. Rated PG-13. CAPSULES REVIEWED BY DAN HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com ............Whether Facebook has changed the world for better or worse is debatable. But The Social Network, which chronicles the early days of the web giant, is indisputably great as it tells the story of a social outcast and makes him the conduit to bringing people together all over the world. Aaron Sorkins (The West Wing) script is based on Ben Mezrichs book The Accidental Billionaires and depositions from two simultaneous lawsuits against Facebook founder/aforementioned outcast Mark Zuckerberg. Played here by Jesse Eisenberg, Mr. Zuckerberg is a brilliant kid at Harvard whos just trying to fit in when he comes up with the idea for Facebook. But is it his idea? Director David Finchers film also includes twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss (both played by Armie Hammer), who earned a $65 million legal settlement after claiming they gave Mr. Zuckerberg the idea for Facebook. Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), Mr. Zuckerbergs best friend at Harvard and a co-founder of the site, filed the other lawsuit after repeated disputes over the companys direction. The perspectives of the Winklevoss brothers, Mr. Saverin and Mr. Zuckerberg are each given their due, and Mr. Fincher shows a mastery of the material as he tells a gripping tale of greed, betrayal, power and billions and billions of dollars. All the performances are strong, but two stand out. One is Justin Timberlakes, who plays Napster founder Sean Parker. Oozing charisma, Mr. Parker is the spark of the tension between Mr. Saverin and Mr. Zuckerberg. The other great performance belongs to Mr. Hammer, who plays the Winklevoss twins. Watching it, you would never know the same actor is playing both roles, which makes it both a technical marvel and a tribute to Mr. Hammers acting as he gives each twin his own personality. How much of the film is true or fictitious only the real people involved know though Mr. Zuckerberg has dismissed the movie as fiction, and Mr. Saverin refuses to comment (its part of his settlement that he not speak publicly about the site).Regardless, The Social Network is about to become the only story people know about Facebooks origins, and given the popularity and accolades (expect lots of Oscar noms) Sony Pictures is anticipating, its likely to be the only story people know for a long, long time. With recent estimates placing the value of Facebook at $33.7 billion, The Social Network plays like a time capsule to seven years ago, when the world was a more verbally communicative place. Now, ironically, interpersonal communication skills have diminished and been replaced by Like and Share buttons. The long-term impact of this is still to be determined, but its not a stretch to say Facebook will be looked back upon as the idea that began a new era of human communication. And because The Social Network makes the origins of this worldchanging idea so compelling, it, too, is a total success.

If a winner cannot attend the conference, we ask to be notified so that the ticket can be passed on to the second place winner. No transfers its only fair.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C13 Do you enjoy mysteries with religious themes and characters? Forget Father Dowling. Forget Rabbi Small. Catch up with Michael Listers John Jordan Mystery series. A former policeman now working as a prison chaplain in Floridas panhandle, John Jordan wrestles with the conflict of justice and mercy on the one hand, and justice and vengeance on the other. Mr. Listers Jordan becomes a flawed everyman whose determination to become a better person and a spiritual counselor to others is constantly tested as he struggles to balance the demands of his chaplaincy with his work as a crime investigator. In The Body and the Blood, the latest book in this series, something that seems completely impossible has happened at the Potter Correctional Institution: Justin Menge, an inmate just short of being paroled, is murdered inside his locked cell. Most peculiarly, the pool of blood spreading under the cell door is no longer in proximity to the bloodless corpse lying on the cot a cot whose sheets are almost clean. How can this have happened in a prison with multiple levels of security? And what does it mean that the danger to Menge had been suggested in two different ways? First, a sister who hasnt seen him in years voiced concern that Menge might be in danger. Second, a mysterious handout appeared imitating an announcement for a prison worship service, but with wording that warned of such a crime. While Jordan and the state prison systems chief investigator, Tom Daniels, explore the locked door part of the mystery, they come up with a variety of suspects on the basis of motive perhaps too many plausible suspects for a jury to find anyone guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt. Daniels has a vested interest in the case because Menge was about to testify against Juan Martinez, an escaped and recaptured convict who raped Daniels wife. John Jordan has a complex relationship with vengeanceminded Daniels in that Jordan is working hard to rebuild his fractured marriage to Daniels daughter, Susan. Suspicion falls on corrupt prison guards, on a female prison psychologist for whom records show improper time markers for entering and leaving Menges section of the prison, and on another prisoner, Chris Sobel known to be Menges boyfriend. Since Sobel and Menge are very similar in appearance, it FLORIDA WRITERS Michael Lister: a bright talent with a bloody tale BY PHILIP K. JASONSpecial to Florida Weekly The Body and the Blood, by Michael Lister. Five Star. 330 pages. $25.95 r p e y d o f i n u t a n h o as anceLISTER even seems possible that they might have switched identities at some point or been mistaken for one another, further confusing the permutations of motive. As the investigation plot twists and turns, so does the story of John Jordan and Susan, complicated now by two additional factors. Susan, who has become uncharacteristically seductive, reveals that she is pregnant, a piece of news for which John is not prepared. Still, he is committed to making the best of the obligations he has taken upon himself. This means, however, that he must put an end to his relationship with Anna, a beautiful colleague on the prison staff who has thoroughly won his heart. In both Jordans professional and personal life, he feels a current of failure undermining his commitment to the moral high road. He feels himself slipping away from faith and from the standards he had set for himself. Mr. Listers sensitive, convincing development of this side of Jordans character is one of the more engaging and original features of The Body and the Blood and of the entire John Jordan series. The author keeps the reader sympathetic while Jordan struggles on to unexpected outcomes in the overlapping personal and professional sides of his life. The denouement of the novel is provocative and potent. Another original aspect of this series is Mr. Listers gritty, disturbing portrait of life inside a large, rural penitentiary. His experiences as a chaplain in prisons similar to the imaginary Potter Correctional Institution allow him to portray the environment and dynamics of this microcosm with authenticity and power. Not far from Panama City is a small town named Wewahitchka where Mr. Lister makes his home. It is also the home of the Gulf Correctional Institution. You do the math. Mr. Lister does the literature.

It is a very popular fish, especially for grilling. But, it has a high oil content and contains a type of oil called waxy esters. Although the waxy esters are not harmful, they can have a laxative effect on some people. For people who are eating Escolar for the first time, the Seafood Professor recommends a small portion of 4 to 6 ounces.

The Naples International Film Festival unveiled its 2010 poster during the recent Dinner and Movie evening at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. Naples resident Mark Drew, a fashion photographer who works from Miami and New York and was named an emerging artist for 2010 by New Industry Arts, created the poster that reflects the essence of Florida with a modern yet classic approach. After obtaining permission from renowned landscape photographer Clyde Butcher to shoot the photo outside Mr. Butchers studio in the Everglades, Mr. Drew secured an antique movie camera from Beaux Arts in Clearwater, Fla., uncovered a 1950s rowboat from a Fort Myers boatyard and obtained a hat and dress from Marissa Collections in Naples for model Jessica Bleier. Frank Russen, managing art consultant for NIFF, selected Mr. Drew as the poster artist and was on hand for the shoot. Mr. Russen reviewed more than a dozen portfolios to find a Naples resident who had a style similar Frank Horvat, a photographer Mr. Russen admires for his fashion photographs using reallife situations with ambient lighting and a 35mm camera.

C16 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 7-13, 2010 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Naples Daily News naplesnews.comBonita Daily News BonitaNews.com choice CHAMPION2010southwest orida Rookwood Pottery was started by a group of women and grew into a large company that made art pottery as well as commercial products and architectural lines. It operated in Cincinnati from 1880 to 1967. The economic troubles of the 1930s led to changes at Rookwood, and it discontinued artist-decorated pieces in 1937. Rookwood was sold in 1941. When production started again in 1943, the companys output included parts for water conduits to be used at U.S. Army camps. Near the end of World War II, the production of artist-decorated pottery resumed and continued until 1949. Years later, all of the companys old molds, formulas and trademarks were sold. Collectors today pay very high prices for the best of Rookwoods artist pieces. Most of these are marked with the name of the company and the initials or logo of the decorator. Jens Jensen (1898-1978) moved from Denmark to the United States in 1927. By the following year, he was a decorator at Rookwood Pottery. He worked there from 1928 to 1948 and later opened his own pottery. His work has become popular and expensive, perhaps because it is in a modernist style. He painted nudes, animals and flowers in a blurry, multicolored glaze. The style is not at all like other Rookwood pieces made in the 1930s. Q: I bought four Windsor chairs at an antique sale 40 years ago. The label on the bottom of each chair says Quaint Furniture of Character, Stickley Bros. Co., Grand Rapids. What can you tell me about the chairs? A: Five Stickley brothers made furniture: Gustav, Albert, Charles, John George and Leopold. Gustav is the most famous, and his furniture brings the highest prices. Albert and John George established Stickley Brothers Co. in Grand Rapids, Mich., in 1891. Its Quaint brand name was introduced in 1902. The company linked Quaint with various furniture lines, including Quaint American, which dated from the 1920s and featured Windsor and ladder-back chairs like yours. Your chairs can be dated even more precisely because Stickley Brothers used the phrase Furniture of Character on its labels for only a few years, from about 1926 to 1928. The value of your set depends on the condition of the chairs, but a set of four in excellent shape could bring $500-$700. Q: I own a doll that looks a lot like Barbie. My mother gave her to me in the 1960s. The doll is marked Mitzi, Ideal Toy Corp., MCMLX. I wouldnt sell her, but I would like to know more. A: Your doll was Ideals substitute for Mattels Barbie doll. The Christmas toy to get in 1960 was the Barbie doll, introduced by Mattel in 1959. Stores could not order enough stock to fill orders. So Montgomery Ward asked Ideal Toy Co. to make a substitute that resembled Barbie. The dolls were sold in December 1960 and marked with the makers name and the Roman numerals for the year. The box that held the doll had a sticker that explained that the doll was similar to Barbie. It sold for $1.27. Mitzi was sold again in 1961, then was discontinued. A Canadian company, Reliable Toy Co., made a slightly different version of Mitzi and used a different mark. Many dresses and outfits were available that fit Mitzi. Unfortunately, those who received Mitzi instead of Barbie now own a doll that does not sell for as much money as the original Barbie. A well-illustrated book about Mitzi is currently in print and gives more history. Q: What is freehand glass? I have a vase made by Imperial that a friend said is in the freehand line. A: Freehand or off-hand glass was made by glass artists without the use of a mold. That means pieces may be similar, but no two are exactly alike. Imperial Glass Co. of Bellaire, Ohio, began making this type of glass in 1923. The company president had encouraged some glass artists to move to Ohio and make the glass. They designed and made vases, candlesticks and more. Some had contrast-American-made Rookwood pottery fetches high pricesKOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING terryKOVEL firstname.lastname@example.org ing glass strands on the outside of the piece. Some were hand cut after being formed. Most were made in particular patterns that featured dragged loops, spider webs or leaves and vines. The glassware was expensive because of the handwork, so Imperial created a less-expensive line made by blowing glass into a mold. It was called Lead Lustre. Even the Lead Lustre line was discontinued in 1929. Tip: Watch out for a married piece of furniture: a top and bottom section that did not start out together.

The old blues artists and musicians such as Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins, Sam Cooke and Otis Redding are the more recent influences, he adds. BRMC, will open for the Stone Temple Pilots at Germain Arena on Wednesday, Oct. 13. The two bands had performed only two shows of their tour when concert dates were postponed until mid-October because lead STP singer Scott Weiland entered rehab. Mr. Been took the unexpected free time to drive through Mexico. It was really beautiful and amazing, exactly what my doctor ordered, he says. I kinda needed to get out of town for a while, for my own reasons, he adds, obliquely referring to the recent death of his father, Michael Been, founder and leader of the 1980s rock group The Call. The senior Mr. Been was 60 years old when he died of a massive heart attack in mid-August. He was backstage at the Belgian festival Pukkelpop, where he was working as BRMCs sound engineer. Despite the BRMC publicists request that we not broach the topic of his father, Robert Been seems eager to talk about him. He played a really important part in our band, he says. Without him, there wouldnt be a band. He took care of front-of-the-house sound. He was out with us for every tour. He was there with every record, in the studio. The group had a few valued people they trusted for feedback, and Michael Been was one of them. His fathers taste in music influenced his own, Mr. Been says, recalling albums by The Clash, The Smiths, Joy Division, Elvis, The Band, Bob Dylan and Moby Grape always spinning on the record player. He also admits to a phase when he rejected all the things his father liked. I listened to Alice in Chains, Sound Garden, The Pixies, Nirvana and then, I realized that he pretty much had his finger on the pulse more than I did. So he returned to his music he had listened to earlier. Mr. Been says his father was also the first person I knew who was into the Stone Roses and The Verve and My Bloody Valentine. I was finding out about it through him... I got a lot of contrast of psychedelic Brit pop happening at the same time as grunge. Which helps explain BRMCs hybrid sound, which is highly evident on their most recent album, Beat the Devils Tattoo. The name of the album is a line from an Edgar Alan Poe short story, The Devil in the Belfry. The original meaning of the phrase meant beating a drum or blowing a bugle to call soldiers home at night to the garrisons. Mr. Been likes to think of that definition for the albums title. As far as the song goes, I look at the other meaning of it, which is, restless in your own skin, jumping out of your own skin. He sees that as kind of a condition of the whole culture, the state of peoples spirits right now. I think everyone seems to be beating the devils tattoo, and no one knows how to slow down or focus and be still.... Its best to try not to win or lose, but just stay in the ring, from what I can gather, he adds. Those are the best chances you have of surviving. I could be wrong. Im not anywhere near my last round. Do your best to give the devil two black eyes. Im a little more beaten up than usual right now. He got a good blow in, a sucker punch. The album was recorded with the bands new drummer, Leah Shapiro, formerly of The Ravonettes. She replaces Nick Jago, who parted ways with BRMC two years ago. When that happened, Mr. Been says, he had a feeling of despair, and band mate Peter Hayes didnt know if they should continue playing. Leah came at a very strange point in our lives and has been an incredible force in rejuvenating us as people and as musicians and artists, as a band, Mr. Been says. Mr. Been and Mr. Hayes, whove known each other since high school, were used to collaborating, but neither knew how Ms. Shapiro would affect the bands sound. We were doubtful, Mr. Been says. But not anymore. When we get together, theres something else that comes, something else thats supernaturally born. Written in a basement in Philadelphia, the album reveals more on each successive hearing. We werent trying to steer it to become anything, but what it became was a beautiful piece of art, Mr. Been says. I fell in love with it... The songs were there, the songs needed someone to love them. I said, OK, and everything changed after that.

Now some California winemakers, including Sean Minor of Sean Minor Winery and Joe Cafaro of Cafaro Cellars, are releasing some highquality merlots with fuller flavors. Merlot has been over-grown and overproduced in California for years, says Angie Cheatham of Augustan Wine Imports. These wineries, among others, are in the forefront of re-establishing merlot as a top quality grape because of their love for Right Bank Bordeaux wines (which are predominantly merlot based).They have a minimalistic approach to wine making, with lower yields to boost quality and longer bottle aging, Ms. Cheatham adds. The resulting wines, she explains, are full-flavored and concentrated, and they pair well with foods such as steaks and roast.Frank Pulice, owner of Austins Wine Cellar in Fort Myers, thinks merlot has gone in and out of favor but continues to have a core of loyal fans. It has long been a favorite of wine enthusiasts because the aromas and range of flavors are similar to cabernet sauvignon, he says. The Bianchi Signature Selection Merlot 2006 ($19) is a great example of the newer style merlots. With big red-stone fruit flavors and aromas, it has a little spice and pepper on the nose, a touch of oak and caramel as well on the finish. Other high quality wines emerging from California incorporate traditional Old World grapes like nebbiolo and grenache. This TVine Grenache 2007 ($50) is medium-bodied with a touch of spice, says Jessica Palmer, co-owner with Al Fialkovich of Decanted Wine & Beer in Naples. It has lots of spice and a touch of pepper on the nose, with nice strawberry and fig flavors in perfect balance. Caparone Nebbiolo 2005 ($21) from Paso Robles recently surprised Ms. Palmer. I tasted it blind, she says, and was told it was a Barolo. It was great, with nice brickred color, with softer mature flavors of earth and mushrooms mixed in with the fruit. Only after shed tasted it did she find out it was a nebbiolo, which sells for considerably less than a Barolo.An intriguing new blend from Mark Herold Wines is Acha 2008 ($50), a blend of tempranillo, grenache and three other varietals. Dark, powerful fruit balanced with earthiness explodes in your mouth with blackberry and dark fruit flavors, says Mr. Fialkovich. It resembles a big Rioja from Spain.But all the fun of discovery isnt restricted to red wine. Whites are branching out, too. The white wine drinkers who tired of chardonnay in the s and s, the ABC drinkers (Anything But Chardonnay), have slowed down on drinking sauvignon blancs, says Mr. Pulice. Looking for something new and different, theyre turning to wines like viognier, dry muscat and torrontes now. Among his favorites is Ca del Solo Muscat 2008 ($19). The flavors are really interesting, he says. It has a nice white flower nose, melon and peach flavors with some citrus zest. Its lush in the mid-palate and ends with a nice crisp finish. Rieslings fell out of favor with white wine drinkers some time back, considered too sweet and not very complex, likely the result of German wines like Liebfraumilch and Zeller Schwartze Katz. That, however, is changing, too. There has been a stigma attached to the Riesling, says Ms. Palmer, but for a spicy dish, the Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett Blue Slate 2008 ($24) provides perfect balance for the heat. It has classic Riesling flavor with a touch of the terroir, the slate in the slopes of the vineyard, and a mineral clean finish. This will also go well with seafood and lighter dishes with clean fresh flavors. Other non-traditional white wines enjoying increased popularity include verdejo, vermentino, viognier, and torrontes. And for something completely new, consider a Thai-produced wine.The Monsoon Valley White 2007 ($15) is an interesting blend of Malaga blanc and colombard, says Ms. Palmer. It has nice dry melon flavors with some minerality, and a nice crispness at the end. If you want something different in a white wine, this is it.

Tucked into a somewhat obscure corner of a strip center at Pine Ridge and Goodlette-Frank roads, Sushi One appears to attract a fair number. On a recent Friday evening, the 14-seat sushi bar was packed and there were several tables occupied as well. Its a friendly, low-key place, with spare dcor and the feel of a neighborhood hangout which it well might be judging from the number of people who seemed to know one another. One of the two busy servers appeared right away to take our drink order. We wound up asking for the single unremarkable cold sake available: Ozeki. karenFELDMAN firstname.lastname@example.org Simple dishes are best when dining at Sushi OneKAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYConsidering that some relatively close establishments USS Nemo and Fuji, for example have sake menus, Sushi One might consider expanding its offerings. The same goes for wine. There were a handful of little-known selections, and nothing that seemed worth trying. Not only are customers shortchanged, the restaurant loses out by giving short shrift to an item that can produce big profits. Both the standard miso soup ($2.50) and the salmon miso soup ($3.50) were on the mark. They arrived hot and fragrant, with rich miso-infused dashi broth, pieces of tofu and seaweed floating about. With good-sized piece of fish as well, the salmon miso had a slightly richer flavor. The ebi shu mai ($6.95) were described on the menu as shrimp-stuffed fried dumplings with spicy mustard dipping sauce. What arrived at the table didnt quite measure up to that description. The golden nuggets were filled mostly with a doughy stuffing, with bits of shrimp here and there. The bland soybased dipping sauce had no mustard or spice. Two tuna nigiri ($2.45 each) featured firm mounds of sushi rice supporting thick slices of fresh-tasting fish. These were among the best items we sampled. Then there were the rolls. Selecting these from Sushi Ones menu is tricky. Some menus identify which rolls contain cooked fish and which have raw ingredients. At Sushi One, rolls are simply divided by type: Japanese bagel with variations, volcano rolls with a couple of variations, popular rolls, etc. We settled on four rolls to share: the Sushi One volcano ($14.95), the Sexy Mama ($10.25), the Ichiban ($7.95) and the Rainbow ($11.95). The Sushi One volcano arrived first. It covered most of a large plate, with a sliced California roll covered in a casserole of shrimp, scallops and krabstick that had been baked. As with the dumplings, there was little evidence of shrimp. Strands of the krabstick were visible, but bay scallops dominated the dish. This volcano had too much topping, making it difficult to navigate or to achieve a good balance of roll and topping in a single bite. The Ichiban arrived next, a more manageable combination of spicy tuna, yellowtail, salmon and krabstick wrapped in rice and seaweed. One edge of the roll was thin, however, causing it to tear and lose the contents. Balance was an issue with this one, too, in that it contained a lot of finely chopped tuna and spicy mayonnaise blend, making it hard to pick up without the contents spilling out. Of all the rolls, the Rainbow was the prettiest. It was a colorful mix of tuna, salmon, yellowtail, shrimp and avocado over which has been drizzled green and red sauces. The menu said it came with a mango-kiwi sauce. What was on the plate, however, were sweet kiwi and raspberry sauces, the type usually applied to desserts. Unlike the other rolls, this one didnt come with wasabi or ginger and sorely needed the heat of the wasabi to counteract the cloying sweetness of the sauces. Wed forgotten wed ordered a fourth roll by the time the Sexy Mama arrived. It was a very fat roll, with a stuffing made primarily of the spicy tuna concoction along with krabstick and asparagus, which was tempura fried. Because the roll was so big, the ingredients fell out when we picked this one up, too. Like the Ichiban, there was too much spicy tuna mix in proportion to the other ingredients. Perhaps because there were so many customers and only two servers and two sushi chefs, rolls came out one at a time on individual plates. The down side was that there were a lot of plates on the table, making it hard to maneuver and share, something thats not a problem when all the pieces are arranged on a platter or boat. And they arrived sporadically, so that by the time our last one arrived, we werent all that eager to try it. On the plus side, there was plenty of wasabi and pickled ginger to go around as each roll except the Rainbow had its own supply. Theres no question the ingredients used here are fresh. The problem lies in the balance of those ingredients. Sushi rolls are much like sculptures, requiring exacting technique to achieve a properly proportioned result. Its a technique Sushi Ones chefs need to hone. speeadeeebadsoy ds pin g m t o ac h t oppi n The ag eab l lowta i in ric e ro ll w a a nd l o issue w t aine d spicy t o pic k o u t Of a pretti e s a l m o o ver and K AREN FELDMAN / FL O RID A m e wit h a mangok iwi s s on t h e p l ate, h ow e e et k iwi an d rasp b err y u suall y applied to dess e h er rolls, this one didn t wasabi or ginger and sorely h eat o f the wasabi to t he cloyin g sweet n sa u ces Wed w e d a f b y the S a rrive d very f at stu ff in g m a c a m wa s s w e ty pe u t he ot h wasa Ebi shu mai are fried dumplings with a shrimp stuffing.
