The David Lawrence Center has added DUI treatment services to its programs available for Collier County residents. Those who have received a DUI and been referred into treatment per the terms of their evaluation can now receive that treatment at the local center. The center no longer administers the state of Floridas DUI program. As Collier Countys sole DUI class provider for the past 35 years, David Lawrence Center was prohibited by state law from referring DUI individuals to itself for treatment a legality that the board of directors felt was a disservice to those in need of access to the centers substance abuse treatment services, Edward Sheridan, board president, explains. Since 1968, the center has collaborated with the criminal justice system on the development of several courtreferred treatment programs, including the Collier County Drug Court, Mental Health Court, Batterers Intervention and Truancy Court programs all designed to divert people from the criminal justice system and into clinically necessary intervention and treatment services. The new DUI treatment services will allow us to better serve and advocate on behalf of individuals with a DUI conviction LD LADY FATE, WEAVING HER TAPESTRY OF SUCCESS OR FAILure, couldnt have asked for four brighter threads.

Every time I do it I find myself retroactivated squarely to the starting line, where even old people are young because everybody is scratching for the ageless truth, or at least the facts. Which is why any man or woman of my generation would be a fool not to go back to college frequently. Unfortunately, I qualify as a fool. But fortunately, fate intervened the other day and suddenly there I was, in the learners seat once again. Not only had I gone back to college, but I found myself seated at the head of the class, next to the president of Florida Gulf Coast University, Wilson Bradshaw. If youve never sat next to a president, I can tell you this: Its a whole lotta fun. Especially if hes Wilson Bradshaw, and especially if you and he arent seated in a room with 200 other people all eating chicken divan, shortly before he has to make a speech and then go march in the Great Tallahassee Beggars Parade, where grinning men and women elected to higher office will tell him how wonderful he is, which is why theyll be cutting his budget by tens of millions of dollars because they know that hell make up for it through the sheer force of his presidential brilliance. No, in this case we were seated together in shorts and shirts in the stern of a zippy little FGCU boat called the Tidewater, captained by two professors. At the helm stood the dauntless Mike Parsons, associate professor of Marine Sciences and co-director of the Coastal Watershed Institute. Get this: Professor Parsons realized that since the celebrated Gulf Stream flows eastward more than 4,000 miles right past the frigid North Atlantic coast of Wales, where FGCU happens to share an exchange program with Bangor University in marine, biological and environmental sciences, it might be instructive to study plankton that can float from the 75-degree Fahrenheit waters here all the way to the 45or 50-degree waters there.Why? Because the Gulf Stream might be sinking, because it might be slowing down, because water temperatures under it might be changing, all of which would affect the plankton and thus everything else in the deep blue sea, including you and me, he told me.But Professor Parsons was only the XO, the executive officer, if you will. The master and commander of this little mission was the brilliant and seamlessly articulate Aswani Volety, chair of marine and ecological sciences and professor of marine sciences. Professor Volety was dead set on laying down 600 netted bags of old oyster shells in the shallow bay waters of the gulf not far from FGCUs Vester Marine and Environmental Research Field Station, as part of a 7-year-old project he designed. There, the shells will attract floating oyster spat, or larvae. Soon perhaps by next spring theyll be covered in live oysters, forming a reef that can live for centuries (given healthy conditions) surrounded by copious populations of fish and shellfish. To get the job done, the professor commanded the following navy: one college dean, two graduate students, one TV reporter in a short stylish skirt who would soon find herself wading (but stylishly) in about 30 inches of water, a former Marine Corps pilot now flying for Fed Ex, three wellbehaved children, and Florida Weeklys own Windbag Will Travel. All reinforced by a small fleet of other boats carrying about 150 volunteers. In the company of that unlikely armada, President Bradshaw began to relax. All he had to do was talk to me, and climb out of the boat. Once in the water, he joined a long line of volunteers passing the 25-pound shell bags from one pair of arms to another, before the bags were finally scuttled. Being a college president, Dr. Bradshaw took the opportunity to teach. The first thing he taught me began with a question. Do you know how much water a single oyster can filter? he asked casually. Ah, about No, I admitted. (Going back to college is always embarrassing if youre a fool.) About eight to 10 (liters) an hour, he said. Wow, I replied dully. Now you know, he added with a kindly smile. Eight to 10 liters an hour would mean, about, ah let me look it up (like a goingback-to-college student). One liter equals about .264 gallons. So 10 liters equals roughly 2.64 gallons. If an oyster filtered and cleaned 2.64 gallons of seawater an hour, it would percolate more than 63 gallons in a 24-hour day. One little oyster! Do they do that all the time, or do they rest occasionally? I forgot to ask. Clearly, I aint no college student. So thousands of oysters could be filtering millions of gallons of seawater, someday and every day, right on that very spot, I realized. The world is a wonderful place. And so is going back to college.But it became more wonderful right quick.As I stood thigh deep chatting with Professor Volety, he suddenly turned and called to the president, who was working about 50 feet away. Dr. Bradshaw, I was just telling Roger what we have talked about for marine sciences, the professor said. Do you think we can have a Ph.D. program in marine sciences? Suddenly it felt like Christmas in April, minus the fat white man in a red suit. A Ph.D. program would define FGCU not only as a superb teaching university in the highly regarded Florida state system, but as a serious environmental sciences research university and thats a whole different back-to-college ballgame. Thats where the real prestige is. President Bradshaw consulted the matter for about two seconds. He did not turn to any committees. He did not fly off to Tallahassee to parade and beg. He did not glance at the dean or an aide or even at the attentive media. Nor did he dive into the Gulf of Mexico and swim rapidly away, underwater. OK, he said, instead. Ill tell you what: with that kind of leadership, I might give up this writing gig and go back to college permanently.

OPINION Dear Publix leadership: As clergy in Naples, where Publix opens its GreenWise-themed store this week, we write to heartily echo the sentiment proclaimed on every bag of new Publix-brand coffee: Fair Trade is Only Fair. The message continues: Were proud to say that this coffee is Fair Trade. Why? Because Fair Trade prices help small farmers provide employees with livable wages and work conditions. Which fosters the same values we do: community, well-being and a nicer world. We, the undersigned, also strongly believe in these values; livable wages and work conditions are indeed indispensable ingredients for a nicer world. We celebrate the accomplishments of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers toward that same mission within Floridas tomato industry, where poverty wages have stayed stagnant for decades and federal slavery convictions have emerged repeatedly in recent years. By partnering with large food industry retailers, the CIWs own Fair Trade efforts called the Campaign for Fair Food benefit thousands of our states hardest working, worst paid, least-protected laborers: tomato pickers. A voluntary penny-a-pound paid by the worlds four largest fast-food companies and three largest food-service companies provides vital economic relief to workers. Along with supplier codes of conduct designed together with the CIW, the Campaign for Fair Food establishes a historic opportunity for Florida growers to provide employees with livable wages and work conditions. The pervasive poverty and powerlessness faced by Florida farmworkers engender a climate where more extreme abuses like forced labor can take root. The CIW knows these dynamics all too well. For helping to liberate more than 1,000 workers in six separate farm servitude operations since 1997 as well as for its groundbreaking work to eliminate forced labor in supply chains, the CIW was selected by the U.S. Department of State in July for its 2010 Hero Acting to End ModernDay Slavery Award. Since springs harvest season, two additional federal indictments for forced labor on Florida farms have been unsealed. To learn more about modern-day slavery in our states agricultural industry, we invite Publix leadership and consumers alike to an interfaith weekend of events titled Harvesting Hope: Cultivating Justice in the Fields and Beyond, hosted by Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church. The keynote panel will be moderated by FGCU President Dr. Wilson Bradshaw and composed of several of Southwest Floridas foremost experts on modernday slavery in the fields: Collier County Sheriffs Office Det. Charlie Frost, Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Doug Molloy and CIW co-founder Lucas Benitez. It is at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13. We joyfully welcome Publixs enthusiasm for Fair Trade coffee and hope that Publix also will make a powerful contribution toward ending the human rights crisis in Floridas fields. A rising consensus of retail food leaders from Whole Foods to McDonalds to Aramark is joining the CIW to actively transform Florida agriculture for the better. By working with the excellently qualified CIW to enforce a supplier code of conduct and contribute just a penny more per pound to lift up tomato pickers miserably low wages, Publix can foster right here at home the nicer world made attainable through livable wages and work conditions. Sincerely, The Rev. Bruce Frogge, First Christian Church of Naples The Rev. Dr. Thomas Harp, Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church The Rev. Dana Hendershot, Christus Victor Lutheran Church The Rev. Kathleen Korb, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples The Rev. Catherine OConnell, Naples United Church of Christ The Rev. George Ratzmann, St. William Catholic Church The Rev. Kathryn Schillreff, St. Monicas Episcopal Church The Rev. Roy Terry IV, Cornerstone United Methodist ChurchAlls fair in Fair TradeTwo-thirds of West Virginians approve of the job performance of Gov. Joe Manchin. In ordinary circumstances, that would be enough to get him any promotion he wants. Not in 2010. Manchin trails Republican businessman John Raese in a key Senate race. As soon as he stepped off the state stage into a federal race, he became associated with Obama liberalism, a deadly virus against which personal popularity and even moderation provides only limited immunity. If he loses, hell be a victim of the revenge of the Hillary voters. In the 2008 Democratic primaries, Hillary Clinton had persistent appeal among working-class whites, loosely defined as whites without a college education. As Henry Olsen of the American Enterprise Institute notes, 94 percent of West Virginians are white, and only 17 percent of them have a bachelors degree or higher. In the 2008 primary, Clinton beat Barack Obama in West Virginia by 67 percent to 26 percent. Today, Obamas approval rating in the state is ... 29 percent. Democrats have undertaken an experiment in whether you can be the self-styled party of working people if you dont have much appeal to a swath of working people. In Obamas case, the answer is yes, at least it was in 2008. He lost the roughly 40 percent of the electorate that is working-class whites to John McCain by 18 points, but made up the deficit among other groups. In that context, the preference of working-class whites for Republicans over Democrats on the generic ballot by 22 points this year isnt alarming. Obama running nationally conceivably can overcome that kind of gap. But an untold number of Democrats running in areas where working-class whites predominate cant, as a matter of sheer arithmetic. Many of these Democratic majority makers will be the sacrificial lambs of Obama liberalism. According to Gallup, Obamas approval rating is still above 50 percent among blacks, Hispanics, voters between ages 18-29, moderates, postgraduates, singles and Easterners. Hes below 50 percent among everyone else, and in the 30s among whites, voters 65 or older and married people exactly the voters who disproportionately turn out in midterm elections. Liberals want to chalk this up to race. But in January 2009, when President Obama was as African-American as he is today, his approval rating was 63 percent among whites. Its long been an occupational hazard of liberalism to get crosswise with working-class whites. Obama is particularly vulnerable because he combines the affect of Adlai Stevenson with the economic performance of Jimmy Carter. He came into office with working-class voters suspicious that he didnt understand their concerns and proceeded with an agenda health care, cap-andtrade and all the rest of it that didnt address their concerns, or work. Obama famously boasted to a retiring conservative Democratic congressman that this year would be different from 1994, because Democrats had him at the top. Ask Joe Manchin, among many others, how thats working out. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Revenge of the Hillary voters richLOWRY Special to Florida Weekly GUEST OPINION MOMENTS IN TIME On Oct. 21, 1959, on New York Citys Fifth Avenue, thousands of people line up for a debut of a bizarrely shaped white concrete building that resembled a giant upside-down cupcake, the new Guggenheim Museum. On Oct. 22, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signs the Highway Beautification Act, which attempts to limit billboards and other forms of outdoor advertising, as well as junkyards and other unsightly roadside messes, along Americas interstate highways. On Oct. 23, 1921, in France, U.S. Army Sgt. Edward Younger selects from four caskets the body of the first Unknown Soldier to be honored among the approximately 77,000 United States servicemen killed during World War I. He marked the casket with a spray of white roses.

Rockettes road to Southwest Florida goes through Myrtle BeachTraveling troupes of Rockettes rehearse during the fall, much like baseball clubs do in spring, at an outof-town venue. Starting in November, the renowned dancers appear in more than two dozen cities across the United States, including Fort Myers, as stars of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular in its full, high-kicking splendor. Shortly after Labor Day, a few hundred cast and crew of the show arrived in the Myrtle Beach, S.C., area. There are a ton of golf courses, notes New Yorker (and long-ago Ohioan) Jeff Capitola, who is akin to the national tour general manager of the Christmas Spectacular. As vice president of touring productions for Madison Square Garden Entertainment, he assumes a broad vista of caretaking, advocating, negotiating, coordinating and accounting duties for the Rockettes and staff. Mr. Capitola found a suitable rehearsal spot near Myrtle Beach, where he keeps an eye on the big picture while the performers perfect every detail of choreography and wardrobe consultants measure hemlines by the inch. There are four road productions, and we rehearse all of them in what is now sort of an abandoned outlet mall, he explains. We rent it from the owners every year. Its oddly ideal for our setup here. The location is The Waccamaw Factory Shoppes off Highway 501, which ends a few miles east at the beach. The Shoppes have been more or less unoccupied since 2001, although a few businesses rent space there, such as a retail store that sells Halloween costumes. The Rockettes will be at the old mall through October. Then the four road productions will divide and charm the United States, with one going along the east coast, two heading off to sports arenas in the west and the fourth bound for halls in placed including Tallahassee and Fort Myers. There are 87 women on tour as Rockettes. That sizeable group of young performers, one might suspect, would paint Myrtle Beach (population about 30,000, not including the rest of Horry County) redder than Rudolfs nose. But Mr. Capitola says the job of rehearsing and subsequently performing Radio City Christmas Spectacular dictates a quiet, and demanding, four months on the road. The dancers rehearse six days per week, six hours per day. Its pretty much sort of business as usual once we get here, he says. (The day) starts at 10 a.m. and youve gotta show up for work With the Rockettes, its like having a group of athletes around. If you have to dance for six hours, you cant be out late at night. Part of Mr. Capitolas job is to make sure the dancers and other staff are as comfortable as possible. For example, he arranges for transportation from the airport, catering during the day and lodging for the dancers at a time-share property intended to provide some semblance of home. We are always concerned about the quality of life, he says. We take people away from their home approximately four months out of the year. At the end of the day, these people are working long hours and very hard for us and we want them to be happy and healthy. Mr. Capitola began his assent into big-time stage-show management by mistake. In college, he aspired to be an actor. He was required to spend a semester off-campus interning for a New York City arts program, but because he was late making plans, the only position available was one at a Broadway general managers office. It ended up a good fit, he says. He moved to New York after college and helped manage Broadway tours of Grand Hotel, Jesus Christ Superstar, Forbidden Broadway and Cats. He became a company manager at Radio City Music Hall in 2001 before moving on to his current position. After returning home around January, hell go back to work at his office at Radio City in Manhattan, where hell settle up expenses such as ticket sales and beginning again to look toward next years Christmas tours. I have a good life in New York, he says, although he has no immediate family there. He has sisters in Ohio and Arizona. In an industry like this is an interesting sort of built-in family, he says. You spend a lot of time with these people, so some of them become good friends.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 son in her family to go to college. The two other threads in the tapestry on this day were high-school seniors visiting FGCU as prospective students: Elizabeth Orne, a 17-year-old from Clearwater, Fla., and Hannah Carver, also 17, from Jupiter in West Palm Beach. Up, up, up The cost of a college education today is about 440 percent higher than it was fewer than 25 years ago. The increase represents more than four times the rate of inflation since then, according to the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education. At FGCU, that means a minimum of about $16,000 per two-semester year. FGCU is some $2,000 less than the University of Florida or Florida State (each of the 11 institutions in the Florida system must set its own fee schedule within a range dictated for all by the legislature). By comparison, the price of a year at the nations most prestigious private schools, such as Harvard or Yale or Columbia universities, comes in at about $50,000 for two semesters. Across the board, higher education will only become more expensive. I can only say this with certainty: Its never going to be as cheap as it is today, said Marc Laviolette, FGCUs director of admissions. Tuition at Florida state colleges and universities remains about $1,500 to $2,000 less per year than the national average, which the state legislature has mandated as the goal. Periodically but consistently, therefore, tuition and fees in Florida state schools will increase and not only until they reach the national average. There are other self-propelled costs, as well. Research at schools that offer Ph.D. programs of the kind FGCU is intent on creating is costly in itself. That cost is shouldered partly by students (or their parents) paying to attend those institutions. In 1997, the year FGCU opened, the school spent less than $3 million on academic research, a figure that rose to $14.8 million last year. Research is the way to go. Thats where the prestige and the money are, noted Wilson Bradshaw, FGCUs president, in an informal conversation about Ph.D. programs last spring.Resources do exist All of those factors will play a role in the cost of tuition no matter what the economy does, the academic prognosticators say and no matter how long it takes working Americans to recover from the recession that either has or has not ended. There is one other certainty in this carnival ride of rising costs and economic conditions besides Mr. Laviolettes that education will never be cheaper than now): Resources exist to help students pay for it, somewhere. The trick, if there is one, requires avoiding assumptions about grants or scholarships and looking at a wide range of options. Among the most frequently used pay options for Florida families are Bright Futures scholarships and the Florida Pre-Paid program, officials say. At FGCU, where the cost of a single credit hour is $166 for a Florida student (that rises to $700 for an out-of-state student) Bright Futures, designed to keep Floridas young brains and talent in state, pays from $95 to $126 a credit hour, depending on how well the student did in high school. And the Florida Pre-Paid program, in which money can be invested years in advance to lock down the price of study at the rate current when the investment is first made, also covers a portion of the cost. In both those cases, Bright Futures in particular, the money is unlikely to go as far in the future, officials warn.Humans in the higher-ed gristmillHow all this plays out for an individual depends on a multitude of circumstances and chance. On the FGCU campus under a spotless blue autumn sky, students and visitors were welcomed, advised, chaperoned, toured about, fed, smiled at effusively, weighted down with information and reassured by the visible in this case, 760 acres of academia seemingly as full of bright promise as a new penny. All that had an effect, of course. I would say this is the ideal college experience: pleasant, safe, helpful, said Ms. Orne, the Clearwater high-schooler who wandered eagerly from building to building with her mother, Debbie Orne, joined by an affectionate connection of hands. For most, cost and sacrifice crouched just out of sight behind the big buildings and fountain vistas of FGCU laid in between broad carpets of live oaks, slash pines and palmetto scrub. For many, an education will cost years of struggle to maintain economic health, not only for the student, but for entire families who have to support them one way or another. I got scholarships and grants when I went to college because my parents were not able to pay for it, so I had to, recalled Mrs. Orne, who teaches elementary school in Clearwater. As for my daughter, I want her to have no debt when she graduates (Elizabeth will enter the class of 2015). Her job is to get good grades and be a responsible young adult. For Ms. Neal, FGCUs pre-med senior, responsibility came too early. Like her friend Ms. Miranda, whose family immigrated to Naples from Colombia by way of New Jersey, shes worked and struggled to make ends meet but the education will ultimately cost Ms. Neal significantly more. Thats because Ms. Neal, originally from New Mexico, was unable to obtain Florida residency status and the tuition break that comes with it until just this semester, the first semester of her senior year, even though shes been a full-time resident of the Sunshine State for three years. She has spent about $25,000 per year at FGCU, she says not counting summer school, which can add up roughly to as much as $6,000 more. I thought it would take only one year to be declared a resident when I came here, but I was wrong and now Im so frustrated by the system, she says. What I found out is that you cant be a Florida resident unless you work and earn at least half the cost of your tuition so Im at $30,000 a year (which included the summer school she was taking), Im pre-med (which means the courses require a great deal of time and effort), they want me to go to school full-time, theres a recession on, I need a car to work, and they want me to work a lot. It made me feel like I shouldnt have come here. But that was the easy part. Ms. Neals mother, her sole participating parent, died of heart disease when Ms. Neal was 19, a tragedy for the young woman in many ways, not the least economically. But paradoxically and perversely in Ms. Neals eyes her mothers death also proved a boon. As it turns out, by federal law the law that dictates who and how much individuals can get in federal grants or loans to study students are not considered independent of their parents, even if they live alone and provide entirely for themselves, until theyre 24 years old, unless theyre married or they pay for more than 50 percent of the cost for a child. Or unless they have no parents. After taking time off when her mother died, then returning and applying for residency again, state residency finally came through this semester for Ms. Neal.

There are many creative ways to pay for an education, maybe more than ever before, so just because a student is planning or focusing on an education that could seem too expensive (at first glance) doesnt mean you have to rule it out.

Saturday, Oct. 22, 10am-4pmof both parents, or of a biological parent and a stepparent if he or she exists, must be provided annually to secure the financial aid that is all but essential for so many students. A lot of stepmoms and stepdads dont want to take responsibility (for stepchildren, which requires that they submit annual tax information), but guess what? Then you shouldnt have gotten married to someone with a child going to college, said Becky Peterson, an FGCU financial aid officer whose comment elicited both groans and chuckles from more than 100 parents and students visiting campus last week. Every year in a very timely fashion, therefore right after Jan. 1 Ms. Miranda sits down with her parents and helps them make sure all the paperwork is filled out and filed correctly. Since she lives at home with them and her younger brother (in order to save about $3,000 a year in college costs), thats no problem, she says. Neither is it a problem for the grateful Ms. Miranda shes grateful to her mom and dad, who speak little English, and for the opportunity to be the first one in her family to attend college to serve as secretary of the house, as she puts it, doing a myriad of bookwork for others in the family (her older sister, who did not go to college, is married with children). She is also chief cheerleader in the Miranda clan. My brother is going to college, she insists. Im going to make him go whether he wants to or not. Which wont be difficult because he does, indeed, want to further his education. Hes watched his sister acquire an elaborate mlange of grants and scholarship from the Pell to Bright Futures to FGCU Foundation scholarships to scholarships for students who are the first in their families to go to school, to scholarships for immigrant students, to the National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent scholarship. But he isnt going to do it that way, he says not entirely. Although his grades are high at Collier Countys Palmetto Ridge High School, Carlos Miranda, now 16, is one of the most talented distance runners to appear on the scene in years. The bright, scrappy sophomore has already won or placed high in a number of regional cross-country and track meets, and holds a personal best of 4:22 in the mile and 15:57 in the 5,000 meter (3.1 miles). He is, in short, scholarship material, a person with a lot of guts who is willing to sacrifice. And hes not the only one. The entire Carver family from West Palm Beach fits such a description, too.The American Dream Among the many who visited FGCU to catch the scent of college life last week, Brian and Becky Carver are the parents of Hannah, the prospective freshman who is intent on studying occupational therapy, and 10-yearold Ben, who already says he wants to attend the University of Tampa to become a meteorologist. Mr. Carver, a construction contractor, suffered a salary decrease of 50 percent through the recession, while putting his wife through college. Mrs. Carver will graduate this spring from Florida Atlantic University to become a teacher, so both can continue working to put their children through college. Hannah will be in the college graduating class of 2015, and Ben in the class of 2022. That entire cycle could cost the Carvers roughly $200,000, according to current and future estimates for in-state residents enrolled in Florida universities and colleges during those years. Since my pay has been cut in half, I cashed in my 401k and my IRA and Ill work until I die, Mr. Carver said cheerfully. Well pay as we go, and Im planning on paying for it all. His daughter holds a weighted GPA of 3.5, so she will get scholarships such as the Bright Future and probably others, and that will help. But after a short presentation in which an FGCU official warned the crowd that Bright Futures students who drop a class now have to pay back that money to the state, Mr. Carver revealed stronger feelings about the contemporary realities of higher education. Concerning all these government aids, the Bright Futures and so on, I think if kids drop classes they should have to pay it back. And I would rather pay every dime of the cost of education for my kids, myself, if I got everything back in taxes Ive paid out to support all this. From cashing in my 401k they took out federal taxes, to start with. And then I had to pay a stiff penalty Im taking my own money out of my own account and I made every penny of it. Now youve got me mad. Mad with a willing smile. Its the American dream, baby, said Mrs. Carver. ROGER WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYMarc Laviolette, admissions director at FGCU.

If the imagination is where treasures are found, then the city of Naples has discovered a way for residents and visitors alike to more easily find local treasures in the very area that once captured the imagination of captains of industry and mullet fryers alike. The colorful new Walking Map of Downtown Old Naples was commissioned by the Community Redevelopment Agency and endorsed by the Naples City Council. Those who helped bring the map to fruition include Sharon Kenny and Richard Ahrens, artist Walt Fournier, Jeff Curl, myself and Lee Willer-Spector, coordinator of the CRA for the city. Ms. WillerSpector most graciously and elegantly managed the creative process. City Councilwoman Dee Sulick, chairman of the CRA, gave the final nod of approval and as if by magic, this charming, encapsulating overview of Old Naples came to be. I love it because it shows just how walkable Old Naples, the most intriguing area of our city, is. Pick up your own copy of the map during City Fest and the Stone Crab Festival activities this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 23-24, at Bayfront.

Weeks, III Owner/Operator SINCE 1932Custom Cabinet REFACING of Naples Kitchen Elizabeth Fox, M.D.Dear Dr. Fox: My tness trainer tells me that with some weight training I can tighten up my arms. It seems to me that the extra skin isnt going to tighten with only weights. What do you think? Can this be taken care of with surgery? Working out is excellent for your health and for tightening your muscles. Working out, however, cannot tighten skin. You have two choices for surgical improvement of your arms. If there is a small amount of skin, you can do a minimal arm lift with incisions in the underarm area which also makes for a very easy post-op recovery. If there is more tissue to be removed you can use a longer arm incision called a standard brachioplasty. Either option has a very quick return to normal activities.

Over the summer, David Lawrence Center began transferring the DUI program and the online Drug Alcohol Traffic Education program to the Southwest Florida Safety Council, which has been providing those services in Lee County since 1964. Having the Southwest Florida Safety Council, a longstanding, qualified provider, available made the choice (to give up the DUI program in order to offer the treatment services) easier, and the transition has gone extremely well, says David Schimmel, CEO of the David Lawrence Center. The move, he adds, allows the center to provide more mission-focused treatment services to individuals struggling with substance abuse problems legal or otherwise. The DUI program, now in the hands of the safety council, includes administering DUI classes, Special Supervision Services and the Ignition Interlock Device program. David Lawrence Center provides of a variety of comprehensive substance abuse treatment services for children and adults who experience problems related to the use of alcohol or drugs. Services include individual and group outpatient programs, inpatient adult detoxification and an adult residential program designed to foster a life-changing, life-lasting recovery.

Guests are welcome. Mr. Eastwood will describe the secret code-breaking work done at Bletchley Park (outside of London) and the cooperation between U.S. and British specialists to break military and diplomatic codes used by the Axis powers during WWII. He will also address the theory that Winston Churchill had prior knowledge of the Luftwaffe raid on the ancient city of Coventry but decided not to take protective measures for the city in order to protect the secret of the broken military code. He also will examine a similar theory about the possibility Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a foreknowledge of the Japanese attack against U.S. forces against the Hawaiian Islands in December 1941. Wine and light refreshments will follow the presentation. Cost is $15, which is waived for first-time guests of members and for potential ESU members. The ESU is an international organization that promotes scholarship and the advancement of knowledge through the effective use of English.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 TO YOUR HEALTH HEALTHY LIVINGNCH was honored last week to participate in the southeast Regional Policy Board meeting of the American Hospital Association. In an environment of changing economic forces and new health care mandates, it is critical that we learn the best practices of other hospital systems so we can benchmark our own progress. I was pleased to represent us with about 50 leaders from hospitals throughout the South. We discussed many of the topics that are top-of-mind here in Naples. Among them: National quality strategy The strategic questions are all around us: What should hospitals focus on, beyond traditional inpatient care? Should we lead community prevention programs such as fighting obesity and smoking cessation? How broad should a hospital systems responsibility extend? Variation in spending Why do some regions spend almost twice as much as others and see no difference in outcomes? Do we have the right incentives for everyone concerned? The apparent answer is, No. The fact is that people who take care of themselves with appropriate preventive measures cost the system less. Yet traditional hospital payment mechanisms, such as fee-for-service, encourage higher volume. Nor have insurance carriers played much of a role in encouraging preventive care until now. All agreed that the goal of a truly accountable health care system is to add value by improving outcomes and decreasing costs. Physician Leadership and Engagement As the nations 750,000 physicians face new challenges to deliver compassionate, competent care, the theme of partnering is everywhere. At NCH, our own colleagues lead the effort to reorganize our communitys health care in order to improve patient care. As we discussed these global topics in Atlanta, I was reminded of the real reason NCH was included in such a leadership summit. The first reminder came via a 4:27 a.m. e-mail from Brigitte Bennett, R.N., clinical coordinator of North Naples ICU. She wrote about how North Collier ICU nurse Sue Wittman displayed immense compassion with a terminally ill patient: Sue had developed a bond with the patients family and at their request, agreed to stay past her 12-hour shift to give them the emotional support and palliative care that they required. Sue stayed for 16 hours. I know the family was extremely grateful to our entire staff, but most of all, to Sue. The second reminder came as I recalled Maria Belanger, R.N., floating to our North Collier ICU to care for a patient for almost two weeks. Her extraordinary care for and doting on this patient even included a foot massage that made the patient feel like a queen. These two examples might seem small in light of the macro issues swirling around health care these days, but in fact, the efforts of people like Ms. Wittman and Ms. Belanger are the most important reason why NCH has attained the status it has as a leader in health care service and quality. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Top-of-mind issues at NCH mirror those around the country NC H wa s ho no re d la st w ee k to p ar allenWEISS allen.weiss@nchmd.org Hospital sponsors free seminarsPhysicians Regional Healthcare System presents the following free seminars: Robotic Arm Knee Surgery and Other Joint Replacement Advances, by Dr. George Markovich from 5-6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27, at Hyatt Place in Coconut Point, Estero; New Options for Shoulder Injuries, by Dr. Michael Havig from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27, at Physicians Regional-Pine Ridge, 6101 Pine Ridge Road; and Balloon Sinuplasty for Chronic Sinusitis, by Dr. David Greene from 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28, at Physicians Regional-Pine Ridge.

The party is open to anyone who wants to learn more about Relay For Life, form a team, or get an early start on the 2011 season. The 2011 Relay For Life will take place at Gulfview Middle School on April 15-16. For more information, call 261-0337, ext. 3861, or visit www. relayforlife.org/naplesfl. STRAIGHT TALK Just when you thought a family caregivers job couldnt get more difficult, consider this: Many of the estimated 73,000 households caring for a senior in Collier and Lee counties are trying to help an aging relative whod rather not have help. A study of family caregivers who responded to a survey on www.caregiverstress.com revealed that more than half of the respondents said their aging relative was very resistant to care, whether from a family member or from a professional who tries to come into the home to assist. This is a real problem for family caregivers worried about the safety of a senior loved one who might be forgetting food on the stove or neglecting to take their medications, says Sue Bidwell, the owner of Home Instead Senior Care offices in Collier and Lee counties. Home Instead has more than 875 independently owned and operated franchises that provide nonmedical, in-home care services for seniors in 14 countries around the world. To help make the caregivers job easier, Home Instead has produced Caring for Your Parents: Education for the Family Caregiver. The online educational program includes a number of resources that address senior resistance to care as well as information about choosing an in-home care provider, the signs of aging, long-distance care giving and communicating with aging parents. The free materials and videos are at www.caregiverstress.com. Why do seniors resist help? They believe that once they acknowledge they need help, theyll lose control of their affairs, Ms. Bidwell explains. Unless they feel they can trust someone, they resist change. I believe its the fear that life as theyve known it will be taken away from them. Sometimes seniors only want help from a son or daughter, which can put undue pressure on that family caregiver who feels he or she cant call for professional help. That strain can take a particular toll on working family caregivers. The Home Instead Senior Care study revealed that 42 percent of caregivers spend more than 30 hours a week caregiving. Thats the equivalent of a second full-time job. And thats what makes countering that resistance to assistance so important. But the battle to turn resistance into assistance can be fierce, Ms. Bidwell knows, like seniors who call police when a professional caregiver shows up. With input from family care giving consultant Amy DAprix, Ms. Bidwell offers these strategies to help counter a seniors resistance to assistance: Understand where the resistance is coming from. Ask your parent why he or she is resisting. Mom, I notice that every time I bring up the idea of someone coming in to help, you resist it. Why is that? Oftentimes older adults dont realize they are being resistant. Explain your goals. Remind your loved one that you both want the same thing. Explain that a little extra help can keep her at home longer and will help put your mind at ease as well. Have a candid conversation with him about the impact this care is having on your life. Seniors often dont understand the time commitment of a caregiver. Bring in outside help. If a relationship with a parent is deteriorating, ask a professional, such as a geriatric care manager, for an assessment. Also, go to www.4070talk.com for tips on how to talk with a loved one. Consider asking another family member or close friend to intervene. If youre not making headway, perhaps theres someone better to talk with your parents. Research your options. Contact your local Area Agency on Aging or a geriatric care manager to research resources in your community. Respect your parents decisions. As long as your loved one is of sound mind, he or she should have the final say. A final note: If your senior has dementia, seek professional assistance from a doctor or geriatric care manager. Logic often will not work, and other strategies must be employed. Free resources help families overcome resistance of seniors who need helpSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY d p r vy m of n g t o b t anc e t h e ing p ar e i s r not i I b r s o m to Wh t i m d o be g oals.

Whatever you use will need to be washed or replaced daily, but the extra loads of laundry are a small price to pay to ensure your senior dog is comfortable. Once again, be sure to work with your veterinarian on the challenges of age. Be especially keen on the combinations of prescription pain medications and so-called neutraceuticals over-the-counter supplements like glucosamine and omega-3 oils that can make life comfortable. Slow down, be patient, be helpful. Youll both feel better for the time you spend with your sweet older dog. BY DR. MARTY BECKER & GINA SPADAFORI_______________________________Universal UclickOlder dogs can stay happy, active with your help Blind dogs: Maintain your blind dogs environment with minimal change. Dogs actually adapt amazingly well when they lose their eyesight as long as you dont start rearranging the furniture. If your dog knows his way around your house and yard, and has a walking route that suits him, try to keep these things constant to prevent injuries and put him at ease. Deaf dogs: For a dog who lives in a soundless world, sudden contact can be unnerving. It can also be dangerous for the person who delivers the shock, since your dog may nip out of fear. Learn how to let your dog know youre coming, and teach any children who have contact how to do so, too. Many dogs are hearingimpaired but not completely deaf, and for those a couple of simple hand claps are enough to get his attention. If your dog is completely deaf, step loudly as you approach him your footfalls will cause a vibration that can be felt even if its not heard. Leaky dogs: If your dog has overnight incontinence, know that the situation probably upsets him even more than it upsets you. Take him out last thing before bedtime, and then provide a water-absorbent barrier in his bedding. You can use a puppy pad, cut-up pieces of a water-resistant mattress Your dog may breeze through years of senior citizenship without any significant health issues, but sooner or later, age catches up with even the most resilient of canine companions. You may one day discover that your dog cant see or hear anymore, or that hes developed an irritable streak where he didnt have one before. In many cases, the first really distressing issue to come up is incontinence an old dog may dribble urine in his bed or in the house and suddenly you have a problem. Any time a new health issue develops, the best course of action is to have it checked out by your dogs veterinarian. And theres this good news: Many problems are treatable at any age, including cognitive dysfunction doggy dementia which can be eased for many dogs with medication. Time, of course, will not be denied. But even for those things that cannot be aided by your veterinarian, you can take matters into your own hands and help your dog age gracefully and comfortably. Remember, this is an animal who adores you, who lives for your approval and affection. As he begins to lose his health, he needs your assurance more than ever. Some special situations you may deal with: PET TALES Easing the challenges of ageWith some adjustments on your part, both you and your dog can enjoy life fully, no matter what time throws at you.

We see what he could not: clearly a case of object in mirror being closer than it appears. In the Chinese Han Dynasty, from three centuries BCE to the first century CE, Makyoh were popular. These magic mirrors had a front of bronze polished to a mirror finish, and a back carved with intricate design or sacred image. When light from the mirror side was reflected onto a flat wall surface, the image from the back of the mirror was seen. Before the clarity of scientific understanding, this seemed to be magic. These early mirrors came into scientific and technological maturity in Renaissance Venice. The world would be forever changed with the resultant opening of new vision in optics and study of the eye itself. Renaissance artists would paint self-portraits in mirrors, and see the whole world from new perspectives unattainable by the eye alone. In the 17th century, telescopes would be born out of the clarity of Venetian glass. Contemporary science continues the quest with treatises about angles of incidence and reflection, with the creation of two-way mirrors. And there are the first surface mirrors, which have the reflective surface above the backing. This is in contrast to second surface mirrors with reflective surface behind the backing. In the first surface mirror the ghosting effect of a faint secondary reflection is absent. This superior clarity is needed in fine telescopes, periscopes and kaleidoscopes. But even more amazing are the musings about the self that reflect new mirror visions. Darwin went to the zoo with a mirror, but found the meaning of the reactions of apes to be ambiguous. In the 0s, Gordon Gallup developed a measure of self-awareness called the mirror test. Mr. Gallup marked the bodies of various animals and of human babies. Then he observed their behavior in front of a mirror. Would they try to rub the spot off their own bodies if the spot were observed in the mirror? If so, that would seem to be evidence that the subject identifies the mirror image as self. Subjects as diverse as great apes, dolphins, pigeons, elephants, magpies and most human babies older than eighteen months made such an identification. With a level of obfuscation possible only in Paris, Jacques Lacan, the father of French psychoanalysis, posits the mirror stage of development in which the ego is birthed in misunderstanding and alienation a fraud that must change as development proceeds. Ill be your mirror Reflect what you are, in case you dont know. Ill be the wind, the rain and the sunset, the light on your door to show that youre home. Nico and the Velvet UndergroundRiddle me this: What do Leonardo DaVincis personal writings, the text on the front of an ambulance, and the book Alice found while talking to the white king and queen have in common? Answer thou that all these can only be read in a looking glass, in a mirror. The mystique of mirrors is reflected in many arenas of discourse throughout history. The earliest mirrors were stones polished 6,000 years BCE. And perhaps even before that, creatures looked in pools of water, between drinking and fleeing, scrying new vision of the one looking. These earliest mirrors were not conceived without hazard. There was concern about mirrors broken. And there were strategies about grinding and burying mirrors that captured the souls of both the living and the dead.

B8 On the moveSee whos going where, doing what. B4 September stats Naples Area Board of Realtors releases recent numbers. B9 Each year, Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida hosts the Business Hall of Fame-Collier County dinner to honor outstanding local business professionals and raise support for yearround programs to educate youth about economics, free enterprise and work readiness. Not surprisingly, this youth-focused organization has found a way to educate students and prepare them for the work world at the same time. Collier County students attend an etiquette class prior to the awards presentation and then immediately employ those skills as special guests at the Business Hall of Fame banquet while sitting among seasoned business professionals. The Business Hall of Fame-Collier County awards will be presented Wednesday, Oct. 27, at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. During cocktail hour preceding the dinner and presentation, Wilma Boyd, the owner of Preferred Travel of Naples and a past Junior Achievement laureate, will teach 24 elementary, 17 middle and nine high school students about table settings, the fine art of conversation, eye contact and the proper way to shake hands. During the formal dinner and awards ceremony, as 2010 Laureates Dr. William Figlesthaler and Len Zaiser are inducted into the Business Hall of Fame, two students will join the adults at each table for an opportunity to put their newly gained etiquette skills into practice. Ms. Boyd started the etiquette classes more than 14 years ago, and since then hundreds of Junior Achievement students have benefitted from the training.Students have a seat at Business Hall of Fame dinner It was 1981, and Steve Marino was struggling to get his new business, known as Home-Tech, up and going. Mr. Marino needed a van to make service calls, and the only one he could find at the car lot did not exactly fill him with excitement. All they had available was this van that was painted a goofy-looking maroon with gold stripes, Mr. Marino recalls. I was working out of the trunk of my car at that time, so I couldnt be too choosy. I bought that van. But I wasnt that thrilled with it. Today, Fort Myers-based HomeTech which specializes in the sales and service of major appliances, as well as electrical and plumbing services is one of the most successful companies in its field. And the goofy-looking van Mr. Marino grudgingly accepted nearly three decades back became the prototype for the fleet of some 80 service vehicles that is a constant presence on roadways throughout Charlotte, Collier and Lee counties. The HomeTech vehicles are instantly identifiable by their signature gold and maroon detailing that was grounded in the initial purchase of that van. I could make up a big, elaborate story and say I chose those colors because they resemble FSUs colors (which actually are garnet and gold), but the truth is maroon and gold became our colors simply because that was my only choice, he says. Mr. Marino did not realize it at the time, but his decision to purchase the van and then adapt later vehicles to its color scheme and design was to become an integral part of the marketing and branding of HomeTech in the years to come. Our trucks have been out there for almost 30 years, and I dont know that we really even need to put the words Home-Tech on them anymore, he says. The colors and the design have become so identified with the company that words almost are unnecessary. Mr. Marino discovered early what many canny business owners have come to learn: Company vehicles when attractively and creatively adorned can become powerful promotional and branding tools. Indeed, Mr. Marino says HomeTech zealously guards its signature color scheme. When another business sought to appropriate the exact colors for its vehicles, Mr. Marino initiated action. We took em to court and won, he says. Color can be as important and defining as a logo.SEE VEHICLES, B5 BY BILL CORNWELLbcornwell@ oridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOPAINTED, WRAPPED & ROLLING:Creative vehicles attract clientsThe colors and the design have become so identi ed with the company that words almost are unnecessary.

As opposed to retail investors, who often get into a sector at the tail end of its bull run (as the lofty gains are perceived to be convincing evidence to invest), pension managers are often reallocating mid-stream. These managers see a new trend which has begun and for which returns are sufficiently positive to warrant approval by oversight and policy setting committees. Tax-exempt money is broadly diversified into equities, real estate, bonds and cash, with percentage allocations targeted. The real property investments made by tax-exempt investors are primarily in the commercial sector as these investors generally stay away from the residential market. Interestingly, besides commercial property, there are a few other real property groups (specifically farmland and timberland) in which these institutional investors have money at work. These two nontraditional categories have fared very well and will probably see greater allocations of dollars in the future, as good returns are impetus for a greater allocation.Commercial reboundThere has been a meaningful recovery underfoot in the commercial sector due to natural market forces. Commercial real estate got clobbered in the Great Recession. Based on national averages, the overall commercial market fell peak (mid-2008) to trough (end of 2009) by about 30 percent. The decline may have been larger than 30 percent in Southwest Florida, but these are national averages and cover all sectors within commercial. Commercial recovery often lags behind the economy by 12 to 18 months. Based on reports by an industry leader in price and transaction information, there is a recovery under way in the commercial sector. Per the NCREIFs index, the overall commercial real estate market turned red in the third quarter of 2008 and continued with losses through all of 2009. Those were six straight quarters of losses. The year 2010 saw a turn into positive territory for commercial properties and it has continued that way to date. Commercial includes: office, hotel, apartment buildings, industrial and retail. A quick comparison of second quarter results shows that the apartment building sector led 2010s second quarter gains, followed by commercial space. Regionally, the greatest pick-up in second quarter 2010 was in the east, followed by the west, then the south and, lastly, the Midwest. The gain for the Southern states was 3.31 percent for the second quarter; in this region, Florida, well known to be very weak, is included with relatively strong Texas. jeannetteSHOWALTER, CFA jshowaltercfa@yahoo.com Beyond commercialPension funds and other tax-exempt investors are not limited to investing in commercial property for their portfolios. They also invest in farmland and timberland. Pension funds holding farmland? Absolutely... as do a bunch of hedge funds owning it in their portfolios. NCREIF also tabulates indices for these two groups. Returns since 1992 have been positive in each and every quarter except one (in which the loss was a scant .01 percent) since the index was compiled in 1992. (That means 73 out of 74 quarters were positive returns.) And some of the quarters returns were quite hefty. For instance, there was an eye-popping return of 23 percent in fourth quarter 2005. Farmland owners will probably see a big quarterly increase in 2010s third and fourth quarter farmland returns (income and property appreciation) as crop prices for soybean, corn and wheat have recently exploded. Not as strong, but still plenty strong vis-vis commercial property, is timberland. And again, despite the woes in housing, this sector will probably see a big pick up in prices in the fourth quarter as lumber prices are quickly moving higher. Possibly one of the best analysts for agriculture and timber is Floridas own Shawn Hackett of Hackett Financial Advisors in Boynton Beach. Shawn has nailed virtually every major (and unexpected) move in these sectors in the past year. He called higher prices for the grains in the spring and summer, before the July 4 breakout. Shawn has been calling for higher timber prices long before the recent move, with several days trading lock limit. Higher timber prices translate into higher timberland prices. But if North American housing demand is the traditional source of demand for North American timber and it is at its lows, from where do the timber buyers hail? Shawn has an interesting spin on timber. Actually, two spins. The first is the buying by the Chinese. Our timber is cheaper than theirs and they want it. As he says, in deference to Paul Revere, The Chinese are coming! The differential between their cost and ours is sufficient enough to have them buy North American timber. Secondly, Shawn sees a drop in supply in the future maybe not right away, but on the horizon, and possibly already seen by long term investors. Not much reported, yet widespread and devastating, is a beetle infestation in some of Canadas timberland. The ramifications of decreased Canadian timber supply will be felt for a long time. Could this scarcity and pricing pick up help existing home prices? Its hard to tell, but at least this news is not negative for the housing industry. There are other ways to play timber and farming other than outright land ownership. Talk with your advisers and get their input as to suitability and opportunities that are good for you. Jeannette Rohn Showalter is a Southwest Florida-based chartered financial analyst, considered to be the highest designation for investment professionals.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 BUSINESS B5 COURTESY PHOTOSA variety of businesses across Southwest Florida have found that vehicle advertising, done correctly, can help them separate themselves from their competitors. No one has done this with greater flair than Mark Loren, a jeweler in Fort Myers. Five years ago, Mr. Loren decided to purchase a vehicle for special deliveries. Ive always been a little bit mesmerized by armored cars, Mr. Loren says. I thought it might be fun if we used an armored truck as our delivery vehicle. The more I thought about it, the more sense it made. You see an armored truck, and you automatically think there is something valuable inside, which, of course, is what our business is all about. We deal in things of real and lasting value. Mr. Loren set out to buy an armored vehicle, but he quickly found that it was not as easy as it sounded. There are all sorts of restrictions on the sale of these armored trucks, he says. Companies like Brinks and Loomis that use large numbers of the armored carriers told Mr. Loren that they did not sell them. He says he was informed that these companies scrap their armored vehicles when they are no longer of use. Undeterred, Mr. Loren kept looking, and he finally found one for sale by an owner in Los Angeles. It was a 1986 Chevy-built armored truck that weighed eight tons. It was rated as a ballistic level 3 vehicle, which meant that even a round from a .44 Magnum handgun (Dirty Harrys weapon of choice) could not penetrate its armor plating. The truck, which had been used in a number of movies (it had its greatest screen exposure roughly eight seconds in Men in Black), was in Montana for a photo shoot. Mr. Loren agreed to a sale price (which he will not reveal) that included shipping costs to Florida from the Montana site. The vehicle arrived in Florida in lessthan-pristine condition, and there were problems getting the thing registered with the DMV. It seems there was confusion over how to classify it, and, at one point, Mr. Loren says he feared that the truck might never get on the road and that he would be stuck with a 16,000-pound paperweight. Eventually, the bureaucratic nightmare was resolved (it is registered as a small school bus), and Mr. Loren began the necessary improvements to the truck. Mr. Loren spent an undisclosed amount on improvements that included four coats of high-quality black enamel paint. He topped the paint job with 24-karat gold lettering. Today, Mr. Lorens black-and-gold armored truck does more than merely serve as a delivery vehicle. We didnt realize when we bought it how much a part of our brand it would become, Mr. Loren says. It speaks for us in ways that nothing else could. It has paid for itself many times over. It is like a roving billboard. Mr. Loren says he believes he was the first independent retail jeweler in the United States to have an armored vehicle. Mr. Loren takes the truck to charity events (it attracts much more attention than a banner), and he says it draws considerable notice even standing still in front of his business on McGregor Boulevard. The key to successfully using business vehicles as marketing and advertising tools lies primarily in making the vehicle representative of a core concept. First impressions are everything, Mr. Marino says. And many times the first impression someone gets is when they see your vehicle on the road, so it should be specific to your company and it should reflect your values. Pizza Fusion, which has a restaurant in Fort Myers, earns high marks for its use of company vehicles. The Fort Lauderdale-based chain treads heavily on the fact that it uses only organic and fresh ingredients and that it is ecofriendly. To underscore these principles, the companys delivery cars are all Toyota hybrids and wrapped in its logo and words like earth-friendly and fresh, natural. The colorful, environmentally sensitive cars are a colorful counterpoint to other deliverers who usually ferry their pizzas in cars that bear crude, makeshift markings. The wrapping of vehicles, as exemplified by Pizza Fusion, has become an increasingly popular alternative to painting. When a vehicle is wrapped, it is cloaked in large vinyl sheets that essentially function as a gigantic decal. Nick Nemec, owner of Big Crush wine distributors in Punta Gorda, decided to wrap his delivery vehicle (a 2010 Ford Transit Connect). The results have exceeded his expectations. Although Mr. Nemecs business does not sell directly to the public, he says his wrapped delivery van brings in business. I would say weve gotten five to seven new clients as a result of (the wrapped vehicle), he says. Its the perfect vehicle for what we do. I didnt know what to do when we first got it, but I just told them to wrap it so doesnt look so ugly. The wrapping on Mr. Nemecs vehicle was done by Harbour Graphics in Punta Gorda. Mark Collins, manager of Harbour Graphics, says Mr. Nemec is typical of business owners who are seeking to have their vehicles wrapped. They may have a basic idea in their head about what they want, but they dont have a precise design, Mr. Collins says. Our job is to figure out exactly what they want to get across and then come up with a design to accomplish that. Mr. Collins says the process of finding a suitable design is often one of trial and error. The client gives the designer an idea, and then the designer provides examples for approval. The cost of wrapping runs from about $10 to $14 a square foot. Mr. Collins says square footage for most vehicle wrapping jobs runs between 20 to 150 feet. Designing the wrap is an additional cost and usually falls in a range of $150 to $600, he says. Mr. Collins says vehicle wrapping is growing, but he characterizes it as a slow advance. At Harbour Graphics, wrapping accounts for about 10 percent of the firms total business. While wraps vary wildly in design and content, there are certain basics that are a must, he says. Whatever you do has to be clean and to the point, he observes. Mr. Marino of Home-Tech says that Home-Tech toyed with the idea of wrapping its vehicles. Some of those wraps really pop out, he notes. They are striking, but we decided not to do that. It doesnt matter if everybody wraps, we are going to stick with what has worked for us. Mr. Marino says that even the most effective vehicle presentation be it wrapping or a paint job is negated if the vehicle itself is in a state of disarray or disrepair. If you are going to have your name and logo out there on your trucks, you better make sure that they are always clean and always look good, he says. It doesnt matter how great the design and colors are, if the vehicle looks bad, if its dirty or whatever, you are hurting yourself and your brand. Steven Bair of Punta Gordas Rapid Graphix, which does wrapping, says he believes that vehicle signage not only generates business, he feels it promotes safer driving. When your name and telephone number are on that vehicle and are prominently displayed and visible, you are accountable, he says. If Im just some Joe driving around in an unmarked truck, for example, what do I care if I cut you off in traffic or speed? No ones going to know who I am or who I work for. Also, from a community safety standpoint, vehicles that are clearly wrapped or marked let people know who is in their neighborhood and who they are dealing with. Mr. Loren has discovered that there are other perks to owning a highprofile business vehicle. On occasion, he chauffeurs his 10-year-old daughter to school in the imposing armored carrier with 24-karat lettering. It really gets attention in the dropoff line, he says.

THE MOTLEY FOOL Evaluating your investment returns is trickier than you might think. Imagine buying $5,000 worth of stock in Scruffys Chicken Shack (ticker: BUKBUK) and selling it a year later for $5,600. Your total return is 12 percent. ($5,600 divided by $5,000 equals 1.12.) But remember inflation, which makes money worth less as prices rise. While your investment grows and takes two or three steps forward each year, inflation makes it take one step back. Lets say inflation was 3.0 percent during the year of your investment. Subtracting that from your 12 percent return yields an inflationadjusted return of 9 percent. (Inflation alone can wipe out much of a money market funds return.) When you read about a real return, it typically refers to one adjusted for inflation. But lets make it even more real, with taxes. Lets say youre in the 28 percent tax bracket, forking over 28 percent to Uncle Sam and keeping 72 percent. Take your 9 percent inflation-adjusted return Real Returns 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. Share Prices in Context Q Is a company priced at $100 per share in better shape than a company with a $30 share price? L.L., Palmdale, Calif.A This is a critical concept, and the answer is no. Never examine a stocks price in isolation. Lots of other things need to be taken into account, such as how many shares there are (many companies have millions, and others have billions), how much income the company is earning per share, and how the price relates to the companys earnings, cash flow and other measures.If a company is saddled with a lot of debt and its earnings have been shrinking, its probably not an attractive investment, no matter its price. If an outfit with a $30 or $100 stock price is growing rapidly, increasing its profit margins and gaining market share in its industry, its well worth considering, unless its stock price has zoomed beyond its intrinsic worth. Remember that a $3 stock can really be worth $1, and a $100 stock might be worth $200. Investors need to do some research before drawing hasty conclusions.Q What kind of education and training do stockbrokers need? P.C., Martinsville, Ind.A A college degree generally isnt required, but they must pass the Series 7 licensing examination, and sometimes Series 63 and Series 65 exams, too. The successful completion of these permits brokers to advise you, solicit business from you, and execute transactions on your behalf.These tests dont measure the ability to discern outstanding investments, though. Worse still, brokers dont have to abide by the fiduciary standard, making recommendations in your best interest (though the SEC may change that soon). Instead, they just have to offer suitable investments. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enrichand multiply it by 0.72, and you get 6.5 percent. Thats your after-tax, inflationadjusted return. For investors in higher brackets, the effects are more profound. (Next time a friend who invests money short-term tells you her returns, ask what her tax bracket is. It might look like shes earning a higher return than you until you figure in taxes.) The tax picture is less gruesome for long-term returns for now. Since 2003, gains on stocks held for more than a year have been taxed at 15 percent for most people. Folks in Washington are discussing whether to change that, and for whom. Always compare your investments return to a benchmark such as the Standard & Poors 500 index, which measures the performance of 500 of the biggest and best companies around. If your portfolio returned 12 percent and the S&P 500 advanced 9 percent during the same period, youre doing well. If you lose to the benchmark repeatedly, you need to reconsider your investment strategy or just invest in an S&P 500 index fund or Standard & Poors Depositary Receipts. My dumbest investment has been in penny stocks. I thought I knew what I was doing, but then found out that that market is full of liars and thieves. Corruption is rampant in the penny market. J.S., onlineThe Fool Responds: While Enron and other companies have shown us that corruption exists at all levels, the penny stock universe, featuring stocks trading for around $5 per share or less, is an exceptionally dangerous place to be. Con artists can manipulate penny stock prices easily, since the companies involved are small, with relatively few shares. The online world has made it easier still, as stocks can be hyped via e-mail and elsewhere, sending share prices up sharply as naive investors pile in. Then the hyper sells his shares, before the price collapses. Youre best off simply steering clear. Many penny stocks are trading on promises and possibilities not on robust balance sheets and track records of profitability. Remember that great investments dont go trolling for buyers. The Motley Fool TakeHarley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) is an iconic American brand. Yet challenges surrounding it and its beloved baby boomer demographic could make investing in this stock an accident waiting to happen. Harley-Davidson has fans so loyal that some of them tattoo the brand on themselves. Whenever you see customers who bleed the brand, that suggests theres something special going on that could lead to winning investments. Harley-Davidson is one such enterprise. But inked skin eventually sags, and Harleys demographic is aging. The companys core customers are middle-aged men, and it gets harder to be an easy rider with every passing year.

The nasty economy has put boomers in a precarious financial position as they transition into retirement. Some companies simply cater too strongly to this weakened consumer group that may have increasing difficulty justifying discretionary purchases. With its expensive bikes, HarleyDavidson fits that description perfectly. Its not even a cheap stock idea right now. Its revenues and earnings have been falling steadily for several years. Over the last 12 months, sales fell 15.7 percent and earnings per share dropped 73.1 percent. Granted, Harley has turned its business around before, such as in the 1990s. Maybe it can do it again but it will need to reinvigorate the brand for younger people. Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

REAL ESTATEA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY B9NABOR report: Housing market shows stability The Naples area housing market shows stability despite the ending of the homebuyer tax credit, financing challenges and oil in the Gulf of Mexico, according to the latest report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Our inventory is at a historical low as we enter season, Michele Harrison of John R. Wood Realtors says. Available inventory decreased 4 percent to 8,800 properties in the third quarter of 2010 compared to 9,209 properties in the third quarter of 2009. Pending sales decreased in the third quarter but increased 20 percent for the 12 months ending September 2010, the report says. That fact indicates buyers may have brought forward their purchases to get the homebuyer tax credit, says Mike Hughes of Downing-Frye Realty. This is only the second time in five years that we have seen over 2,000 contracts go pending in the third quarter. The third quarter report provides annual comparisons of single-family home and condo sales (via the SunshineMLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. The statistics are presented in chart format, along with the following analysis: Overall pending sales saw a 2 percent decrease, with 2,090 contracts in the third quarter of 2010 compared to 2,129 contracts in the third quarter of 2009. Overall pending sales for the 12 months ending September 2010 increased 20 percent with 9,419 sales compared to 7,881 sales for the 12 months ending September 2009. At Aqua condominum in North Naples, there were three closings in August and September, traditionally slow months for luxury condominium sales in Southwest Florida. Only 35 units remain available in Aqua from the developer, says Todd Kendall, president of Strateca, a division of the Lutgert Companies. Buyers are eager to secure a floorplan, view and level that they like, he says, adding the recent sales exceed $11 million. Floor plans in the 11-story Aqua range from 3,514 square feet of airconditioned living area to 5,464 square feet. Sunlit interiors, soaring ceilings, premium finishes and wide views shape the Aqua lifestyle. Each residence has open-air and screened private terraces that allow ample space for dining and entertaining. Common areas include an expansive pool and spa area set against Aquas private deepwater marina, fitness and aerobics rooms, and his-and-her locker rooms with steam room and sauna. Residents also have access to a boardroom and private dining room, theater and a rooftop garden. Premier Properties of Southwest Florida Inc., the real estate division of The Lutg ert Companies, is the exclusive sales and marketing representatives for AQUA. Models are open daily at 13675 Vanderbilt Drive. For more information, visit the on-site sales office, call 591-2727 or go to www.naplesAQUA. com.

HOUSINGFrom page 1The Club at Mediterra, which in December 2009 was turned over from the developer to its members, is expanding. The success of the turnover was greater than the financial model and projections predicted, says Max Passino. Between December and June, 70 new members joined the club in the North Naples residential community, he adds. Expansion plans are for a new bar/ gathering area and a bocce ball court. Members used the clubs tennis courts for an improvised bocce event last season, and its success (more than 160 reservations plus a waiting list) is what prompted the plan for a permanent court. Completion is expected in November. The new outdoor bar and dining/ gathering area is set for completion in December and will double the clubs capacity for outdoor dining. The $800,000 project will be completed with no assessments to members, according to Rich Schmidt, president of the clubs board of governors. The firms of Peacock + Lewis and Ferry Hayes & Allen have been hired for the project.

Gulfshore Playhouse kicks off its fifth season on the main stage with Tuesdays with Morrie. Based on Mitch Alboms 1997 best-selling autobiographical account of his rekindled friendship with an old college professor, the play opens with a special performance to benefit the Lou Gehrigs Disease Association of Southwest Florida. The benefit preview, with $5 of every $35 ticket going to the association, is at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28, at The Norris Center. Regular performances will be Oct. 29-Nov. 21. Written by Mr. Albom and playwright Jeffrey Hatcher, the play follows Mr. Albom, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former sociology professor at Brandeis University, who is battling Lou Gehrigs Disease. Sixteen years after graduation, Mr. Albom happens to catch Mr. Schwartz appearance on a television news program and learns of his illness. The two reunite, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life. Hal Robinson plays the ailing professor, and Wayne LeGette plays Mr. Albom. In addition to Broadway credits including Cabaret, Grand Hotel and George Abbotts Broadway, Mr. Robinson has performed in major regional theaters around the country and has a recurring TV role as Judge Callahan in The Practice. Local audiences will remember Mr. LeGette as Cleante in Gulfshore Playhouses 2009 production of Tartuffe. Producing Artistic Director Kristen Coury directs Tuesdays with Morrie. I am delighted that Gulfshore Playhouse is bringing this beloved book to life on stage, Ms. Coury notes. It is a poignant, heartwarming story that really reminds you what a profound impact teachers, mentors and loved ones have on our lives.NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE NAPLES ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE CSECTIONWEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010WEEK at-a-glanceTuesdays with MorrieFamily night in the parkSee who went to the movie, and more fun around town.

C26 SEE PLAYHOUSE, C4 The Naples International Film Festival last year rolled out the red carpet to independent filmmakers for the first time. It went so well for example, the festivals opening night selection, The Cove, went on to win the Academy Award for Best Documentary that community sponsors have given their own version of the red carpet treatment to NIFF. People have gotten to know us and how we do business and all the positive things weve accomplished, says Rowan Samuel, executive director of the festival. That includes the economic impact of the four-day event through tickets purchased, hotel rooms occupied, restaurants frequented and tuxedoes fitted. Tammie Nemecek of the Economic Development Council of Collier County promotes the festival, estimating the economic impact at about $1 million. Naples Mayor Bill Barnett is scheduled to speak at the opening night gala. I think (NIFF) adds enormously to the cache that Naples has, says Mike Reagan, president and CEO of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce. It brings people to our community, they spend money, and frankly, I think its important for development in a larger sense, including attracting business and investors. Mr. Samuel hopes that impact doubles this year. Further on, he sees the sky as the limit, looking to the type of status Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, has achieved. We have the exact same opportunity here, he says.Lights, camera The black-tie opening night gala for the second annual NIFF starts at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4, at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts.

In America, we love to gripe about the opposite sex. We tell sexist jokes like its a national pastime, and were quick to judge based on gender. Men make fun of female drivers. Women shake their heads and say, Just like a man. For women who have traveled abroad, especially, the American male is an easy target. He cant smooth talk a woman the way the Italians can, nor can he praise her charms like the French. Hes not as passionate as the Spaniards or as funny as the British. Hell never be as pragmatic as the Germans. But the American man has something many men from other countries dont offer (and not just the fact that he wont wear man-pris): American men have a core respect for women that is difficult to find outside the United States. Theyre taught early to respect their mothers and to look out for their younger sisters. They know they have to protect the women in their lives. This fundamental esteem is cultivated over a lifetime and runs very deep. All complaining aside, American men value their women. The same cant always be said for other cultures. When you step outside the United States, you come across different The underappreciated American man ArtisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com approaches to the opposite sex. Sometimes that means different manners of handling women. On a recent trip overseas, I got my own taste of what its like to be a woman in another culture and it was harsh and bitter. When I stepped into an elevator, the male passengers pushed me to the back. When the door slid open at my floor, they cut me off in order to exit first. On the ride back down, I found myself alone with a local man. Where are you headed? he asked. Im going to get something for lunch, I said. He raised his eyebrows and then shook his head. The women here dont eat lunch, he said in a cautionary tone. Otherwise, youll get fat. The elevator stopped at the ground floor, and he elbowed his way past me. In a country where courtesy is never extended to women, I suddenly realized the many ways American men are kind and gallant. I thought of all the car doors that have been opened for me in my lifetime, of the many seats offered on crowded subways and buses. While traveling, I fell in with a group of study abroad students from Michigan. They were heartbreakingly young, more teenagers than adults. There was only one young man in the group, Devin, and he had designated himself the protector. He went with me to the store at night and then SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS...The women here dont eat lunch, he said in a cautionary tone.

He was careful to walk on the traffic side of the street. If we stopped for sweets or fruit juice at one of the local stands, he insisted on paying. Devin was cute in a young-pup sort of way, but the most appealing thing about him was that particular brand of American chivalry. He was neither dashingly sophisticated like European men nor sexy and suave like Latin men. But he was polite and forthright, kind and generous. Just like an American man.

When these neurons can no longer send impulses to the bodys muscles, the muscles waste away, leading inevitably to complete paralysis. Persons with ALS lose their ability to move or even to speak, eat or breathe, while intellectual functions remain intact. The Lou Gehrigs Disease Association of Southwest Florida assists ALS patients and their families and caregivers throughout the area. Programs include providing respite care and a medical equipment loan program.

In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next door two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But theres some confusion as to whos in which room, whos being videotaped, whos taken the money, whos hired a hit man and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes. A View from the Bridge, March 4-20 (preview performance Thursday, March 3) Arthur Millers American classic is a fiercely compelling drama about love, belonging and betrayal that centers on Eddie Carbone, an Italian-American longshoreman who lives in Brooklyn with his wife Beatrice and his orphaned 17-yearold niece Catherine, with whom he is obsessed. Beatrices two cousins enter the country illegally seeking a better life in America, and when Catherine falls in love with one of them, Eddies jealousy erupts in a rage that consumes him, his family and his world. This great play just finished a Tony Award-winning run on Broadway. Blithe Spirit, April 8-23 (preview performance Thursday, April 7) Noel Cowards stylish comedy is the story of a cantankerous novelist, Charles Condomine, who is re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, Elvira.

The film selection for the opening night gala is Thespians, a documentary about four Florida high school drama troupes as they prepare for and compete at the biggest high school theater competition in the world. Producer Warren Skeels will discuss the film with the audience after the screening. We are so honored to be able to share our film on opening night at the Naples International Film Festival, Mr. Skeels says. Its kind of a good luck charm from what we hear. Last year we were brand new and no one knew what to expect and it turned out beautifully, says Shannon Franklin, the festivals artistic director. For the second year there is that expectation but theres also that additional level of excitement. After the opening gala, the 2010 NIFF continues through Sunday, Nov. 7. Most of the festivals films eight documentaries, 11 narrative feature films and 14 shorts will be shown in six theaters at Mercatos Silverspot Cinema. A selection of childrens films from the New York Childrens Film Festival will be screened from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, at The Norris Center. Tickets for the Mercato screenings are $12.50 each; the childrens films will be screened as part of NIFF Kids Day, for which admission is $10-$15. A sneak peekWhen choosing films, organizers looked for a wide variety of work that is new and fresh. Several NIFF feature film screenings will be Florida premieres, including: Cup Cake, a romantic comedy from Northern Ireland about a young man who inherits his parents bakery and will go to any lengths to keep it running; Hello Lonesome (U.S.A.) a comedy/ drama with three stories about loneliness and connection; and A Happy Man: Le Bonheur de Pierre (France and Canada), in which a Parisian professor tricks his high-strung daughter into moving to a remote Canadian town to teach her the secrets to happiness. In addition to the aforementioned Coals to Newscastle, the festival lineup of documentaries includes: My Run, in which Terry Hitchcock, a father raising three children after his wife dies from breast cancer, runs 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days to bring attention to the challenge of single-parent families; The Parking Lot Move, a playful, funny and disarmingly perceptive film about a brotherhood of grad students, middle-age slackers, indie-rockers and surly philosophers who run a unique parking lot in Charlottesville, Va.; and Warrior Champions, the emotional and inspiring story of a group of severely wounded U.S. soldiers who fight to turn nightmares of war into Olympic dreams as they compete for spots on the U.S. Paralympic team. Each film is in the program for a different reason, says Ms. Franklin, NIFF artistic director. First and foremost, we wanted to have something for everyone.

C8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY L O T S A L O B S T E R ! 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 Back in the early s, before white girls began ironing their hair on ironing boards to make it straighter than straight, women favored beehives and bouffants: big, poufy, complicated affairs that defied both gravity and Mother Nature. Hairspray, the Tony Award-winning musical, celebrates that era. It not only celebrates Big Hair, but a number of other things as well, including civil rights, integration, early rock n roll and queen-sized women. This musical doesnt just embrace diversity; it wraps it in a giant bear hug and joyfully dances around the stage with it. Initially a 1988 John Waters flick starring Divine as a frumpy Baltimore housewife, the quirky movie became a Broadway hit, winning eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score. It also received Desk Drama Awards for: Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Book and Outstanding Music, as well as the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical. It tells the story of Tracy Turnblad (Danielle Arci), a typical if not for her ample size teen who loves rock n roll and dancing. Along with her friend Penny (Lisa LeCuyer), she faithfully watches The Corny Collins Show on TV and is in love with its lead dancer, Link Larkin (Michael Kennen Miller). She wants to dance on the show and, like every other girl in Baltimore, wants Link as her boyfriend. When Tracy becomes friends with some African-American kids at school, she learns some cool dance moves from them. The Corny Collins Show, in attempts at appeasing protestors while still practicing its discriminatory casting, has set aside a day each month to allow AfricanAmerican teens to dance on the air. But Tracy cant see why everyone cant dance together all the time. I wish every day was Negro Day! she declares at one point. From the very opening number, Good Morning Baltimore, Ms. Arci plays Tracy with irrepressible bubbliness, reprising her role in the Broadway National Tour. Shes a never-ending bundle of energy and enthusiasm who just happens to come in a slightly larger package than the broomstick-thin popular girls. Lara Hayhurst plays Amber, her nemesis, with relish: a spoiled girl with an over-developed sense of entitlement. She tries to hide her mean streak with a sunny smile, but it doesnt quite work. Choreographer Amy Marie McCleary plays her mother, Velma, producer of the The Corny Collins Show and professional snob and bigot. She has her diva moment with (The Legend of) Miss Baltimore Crabs. Its great fun to watch these two villains you love to hate. Chuck Caruso, as Tracys mother, Edna Turnblad, has some big pumps to fill. Not only did Divine originate the role in the John Waters movie, but Harvey Fierstein, with his foghorn-mixed-withgravel voice and larger-than-life personality, originated the role on Broadway. But Mr. Caruso does a smash-up job and seems a natural for the role. Broadway Palms production of Hairspray is more an ensemble piece, with everyone getting his or her turn in the spotlight. And theres not a weak performer in this cast of more than two dozen. A Supremes-like trio (Ericka Simone Covington, Ayana Major Bey and Marisha Wallace) drew cheers from the audience for their singing in Welcome to the s. (But the staging was disappointing, as the women dont step out from what originally appears to be a lifesize poster on a wall.)A lot to loveWalter Kemp III portrays Seaweed. The III after his name must refer to him being a triple threat on stage, as he acts, sings and dances his way into the audiences heart (and into the heart of Penny, too.) The romance between Seaweed and Penny is adorable to watch, and her transformation from a shy, gawky girl into a bold, dancing young woman in love is great fun to watch. This musical celebrates love of all kinds, and its sweet to see Mr. Caruso and Paul Crane, who plays Ednas husband Wilbur, celebrate their long marriage in (Youre) Timeless to Me. They might seem a mismatched couple to outsiders, but its obvious theyre happy and meant for each other. Scott Moreau, a Broadway Palm favorite, is professionally slick as Corny Collins, and 15-year-old Keana Jordan (of Fort Myers High School) deserves special mention as Inez, Seaweeds younger sister whos turned away from auditioning for the dance show because shes black. (This musical isnt exactly subtle in its preaching of equality, but the music is so darn fun and infectious that any preachiness or overkill in the message is instantly forgiven.) Nedgra Culp as Motormouth Maybelle, a local record shop owner and deejay, delivers the shows 11 oclock number. Ms. Culps role requires her to speak in couplets; although others Ive seen in the role have played it too over-the-top, like an annoying AM radio personality, Ms. Culp speaks her lines naturally, and the rhymes seem to originate from her organically. Ms. Culp commands attention with her moving delivery of I Know Where Ive Been, eliciting sustained applause and cheers from the audience.A few weak spotsDirector Brian Enzman has done a terrific job with pulling this musical together, though he could have emphasized the campiness of it all even a bit more. (The only weak spots are with the staging: the gym scene seems a little scattered, and the three vignettes in Mama, Im a Big Girl Now seem spaced too far from each other.) Also, the opening scene of Tracys bedroom, which is supposed to make us feel as though were on the ceiling looking directly down at her, doesnt have the visual impact it should. But the dancing and singing are spectacular, and the mini-orchestra, led by musical director Loren Strickland, sounded the best Ive ever heard them. Hairspray is the perfect marriage of Mr. Waterss odd characters and plot and Marc Shaimans hook-happy music and clever lyrics (co-written with his partner, Scott Wittman.) The songs are era-perfect, complete with doo-wop-like onomatopoeia and lines about hearing bells and listening to a symphony. Theres even a counting-book romance song (I Can Hear the Bells) a la Who Wrote the Book of Love, in which Tracy counts the steps to her longed-for romance with Link. And of course, the slow, stately ballad I Know Where Ive Been is a gospel-like anthem. The songs are peppy and uplifting and the dialogue is funny, even if the teens and tweens in the audience dont get the references to Lollobrigida and the Gabor Sisters, or understand why a color television is a big deal or why there are only three stations. The Broadway Palm was ambitious in producing Hairspray, but they were also smart. This show is big, outrageous and fun just like Tracy Turnblads hair.

Sure, weve seen Bruce Willis blow things up for years. But Morgan Freeman? John Malkovich? Dame Helen Mirren with a machine gun? Thats a sight to see. Unfortunately, once the kitschy novelty wears off, theres not much more to see in RED, a one-note action comedy with a paper-thin story. Mr. Willis plays Frank, a retired CIA special-ops agent now living in complete boredom in Cleveland. He gets his kicks from working out and flirting with Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) at the Social Security office. Life is good, life is dull, life is about to get very interesting once again. After hes attacked in his home, Frank learns that he and other members of the CIAs RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous) list have been marked for death. And so he travels the country getting the gang back together: Theres Joe (Mr. Freeman), who has stage four cancer and lives in a retirement home; Marvin (Mr. Malkovich), who was given daily doses of LSD for 11 years as part of a mind control experiment; and Victoria (Ms. Mirren), who really, really likes to shoot people. Why theyre being targeted by CIA higher-up Cynthia Wilkes (Rebecca Pidgeon) and her minion William Cooper (Karl Urban) remains a mystery far too long, so suffice to say the retirees know something about a mission gone awry in the early s that could compromise a current political figure. There are also Russian operatives, love stories and enough 360-degree shots to make you dizzy. The action is fun especially as the elder bad-asses break into the CIA to find out whos after them and why and the visual effects are adequate. The performances from the notable cast are fine, but Mr. Malkovich is clearly having the most fun as yet another wacko eccentric. Him carrying around the pig might seem silly, but it has a great payoff. Joyful as it is, director Robert Schwentkes movie never fulfills its promise of total wink-wink cheeky glee. Or to put it another way, the story by Jon and Erich Hoeber (based on the graphic novel by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner) is too thin for anything to really matter. We watch and say Wow! Look at Mirren fire away! and Malkovich is such a weirdo! rather than have those elements be an ingrained part of the story. When only the novelties stand out as memorable, its a problem. RED clearly knows what it is and what it wants to be, but somewhere along the line, someone forgot to offer more than a marketing hook. It will leave you entertained and unfulfilled a hollow victory considering the delight it could have been.

Shes a perfectionist, and I love her combination of feminine softness and incredible strength of ef ciency and practicality. in the know danHUDAK www.hudakonhollywood.com Secretariat (Diane Lane, John Malkovich, Dylan Walsh) In the early s, a Denver housewife (Ms. Lane) leaves her family behind and hires an eccentric trainer (Mr. Malkovich) as she hopes to become a winner in the horse racing business. Lucky for her, the chance she took was on what many consider the greatest racehorse of all time, Secretariat. From underdog status to against-all-odds triumph, this is a two-hour predictable bore of a sports movie.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY After reading The Season of Risks, the third installment of Susan Hubbards acclaimed Ethical Vampire series, I can understand the special appeal of the vampire craze to young adults. Who feels more like an outsider than a thoughtful teenager? Who feels more unsettled than someone going through a sequence of identity adjustments? What better vehicle for probing these problems of otherness than that of the vampire? A changeling by definition, the vampire is in touch with, yet divorced from, the human sphere. A vampire most often must hide his or her true self. As Ms. Hubbard explores the nature of her protagonist, Ariella Montero, the issues of identity and expectation are further complicated by the fact that Ariella is a special kind of tweener: not only halfchild/half-adult, but also half-human/ half-vampire. The authors premise involves an underground vampire civilization with competing sects holding conflicting notions about their proper relationship with humankind. Yes, they live among us; but they live more fully among themselves. On one side of the value spectrum are vampires who secretly farm humans for the blood nourishment the vampires need and feel entitled to. On the other side are those seeking to live openly and in a nonthreatening way within human society, perhaps building an inclusive society. A third sect is positioned somewhere in between. Vampire scientists have developed dietary substitutes for human blood; certain bars and restaurants, truly vampire haunts, serve Picardo and other specialized beverages. However, the desire for the defining act of vampirism might not be exclusively for nourishment, but also for energy of a different order. Vampires dominate entire businesses. In Ms. Hubbards novel, the world of online social networking is presented as a major vampiric enterprise a fascinating metaphor. Essentially, The Season of Risks involves the trials of growing up that any young woman faces, but with the added dimension of vampire (or half-vampire) capabilities: reading thoughts, becoming invisible and interacting with ghosts, to name a few. The fact that Ariella, as a half-vampire, can see only vague reflections of herself underscores the issues of identity and self-knowledge that enrich the novel. A 15-year-old passing as a 19-year-old college student, Ariella has fallen in love with an independent candidate for president of the United States. Neil Cameron, listed as and apparently 30 years of age, is the first vampire to make such a run, and he enjoys great success in the early polling. He is sure to earn the nomination of a burgeoning third party. Political maneuvering involves the ongoing conflicts among the vampire sects. Clearly, a new relationship between the vampire and human worlds is anticipated. This is something Ariellas father, the vampire part of her heritage and a renowned research scientist, also works toward, but in a different manner. Ariella learns that Cameron, who crossed over at the age of 22, had been a soldier in the Continental Army 230 years ago. She also learns that the timing of their relationship is all wrong for Camerons political plans, and that they might have to postpone or abandon their romance to avoid a scandal about their age difference. Frustrated by this situation, Ariella like a typical teenager yearns to be older. Fortunately, or perhaps unfortunately, she learns about a special treatment devised by an important researcher in the vampire community that can transform her into an older version of herself. If she could emerge as a 22-year-old, then perhaps she and Cameron could have a life together without compromising his political ambitions, which seem profoundly idealistic to Ariella. Ms. Hubbard imagines and presents Ariellas perceptions with startling inventiveness and a poetic shimmer. (As a synesthete, Ariella discerns words and numbers in color and texture.) The atmosphere of The Season of Risks is astonishing in its concatenation of images and its rhythmic and auditory expressiveness, even as the environment is grounded in familiar places within Florida, Georgia and Ireland. This authors rare talent for world building draws readers into a suspenseful, highly original and multi-leveled fantasy that dissolves improbabilities while probing important moral and societal issues.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 21-27, 2010 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C13 FLORIDA WEEKLY WRITING CHALLENGE BY JOANNE CONNORS-WADE ______________________Joyce rushed from the parking garage toward the crowded sidewalks of New York City. As she approached the exit she spotted a bulky envelope leaning against a dumpster. Curious, she walked toward the package as the wind swept beneath her umbrella, propelling it from her grip. This exacerbated the already present dismal thoughts percolating in her head. She picked up the nondescript envelope, tucked it under her arm and proceeded to Starbucks.Twenty-four hours ago, Joyce Richmond was a marketing executive with a promising future; now she was headed to the Division of Employment Security, another victim of downsizing. A cup of coffee and a few minutes to dry off would be welcome. She selected the nearest available table. An audible sigh followed a long sip of the steaming brew. She reached for the soaked envelope, which revealed nothing to lead Joyce to the owner.The contents were pressed tightly, enabling the envelope to be sealed with heavy-duty packing tape, but once opened, it expanded. Joyce gasped as she leafed through the contents. She removed two banded wads of crisp, $100 bills and there were more, a lot more! She glanced around the coffee shop feeling vulnerable, thinking it best to conceal the money and return to her car. The Department of Employment Security would have to wait.In the safety of her apartment, she emptied the envelope and counted not once, but three times. Each time the total was the same: $38,000. Throughout the night she considered her obligation to find the owner, while rationalizing that anyone carrying that amount of money could afford to lose it. Perhaps it was drug money? A frivolous daydream was about to become reality. Joyce Richmond was a 31-year-old, single, unemployed woman. She was debt-free and had accumulated a substantial savings. Because of her years with the agency, she received a generous severance package to sustain her through the difficult months of jobsearching. Her penchant for writing was kept secretive, tucked away as merely a daydream. The hours at Mason, Towers and White Advertising Agency had left little time to pursue her passion. Within a day, and with hardly a doubt, Joyce knew her life was about to change. Shed escape the madness and live a Bohemian lifestyle writing mystery novels, prose and poetry. The competitive, stressful demands to reach goals while surviving the manic, downward financial spiral of todays world would soon become a reflection in her rear-view mirror. The cloth top slowly descended and nested in the rear compartment of the BMW. The sunshine and crisp October air beckoned as she headed north. Within four hours she crossed the Bourne Bridge arriving in Yarmouth, Cape Cod, Mass. She was famished and after a light lunch inquired about a rental agency. A gentleman seated at the far end of the lunch counter interjected. What type of rental are you looking for? Surprised at the strangers question, Joyce replied: A moderate, one-bedroom apartment, preferably overlooking the ocean. The stranger ambled toward Joyce. He sat on the stool beside her and extended his hand. My name is Jake Krantz. I may have what youre looking for. It needs some cleaning, but youre welcome to take a look. Joyce hesitated a moment and caught a favorable nod from the waitress behind the counter. She thought, Why not? This is quite unexpected; Id like to see it. What would be convenient for you? Jake flashed a warm smile and replied. Im finished here. How about now? Joyce slid from her stool and walked outside with Jake as he began describing the rental. Its small, very private, on the third floor of my old Victorian. Its actually one of two turrets. It faces west and captures the sunset over the water. Quite a view of the horizon. It sounds lovely. Jake noted the orange tags on the BMW. If you dont mind the three flights of stairs and no elevator. Were not in New York City. He replied with a smile. Joyce laughed at the reference of an elevator in an ancient Victorian house. She followed closely behind the Land Rover through the center of town and then onto Old Lighthouse Road. In the short distance ahead there stood the painted lady, a magnificent Victorian structure painted in traditional pastels. This was the place she envisioned only in her dreams. Within two weeks, Joyce lugged boxes up the spiral staircase and settled into her writers garret. She admired Sydney Sheldon, the master of fictional mystery, so when she discovered a stray cat under the back porch, she took him in and aptly named him Sydney. Sydney slept for hours on a wicker chair close by Joyce. They became companions. As Joyce tapped the keyboard, Sydney napped.Soon the balmy autumn swept into the blustery winters and frigid temperatures. Joyce and Sydney remained warm and cozy, greeting each spring and summer as welcomed visitors. With every passing year, Joyce and her loyal Sydney remained reclusive, rarely seen. To the local residents, Joyce became the legendary Lady in the Tower. BY JOHN MEADE ______________________He lumbered into town, a large, almost freakish size heavyweight. His story was a familiar one: My trainers didnt know what they were doing. They threw me in with anybody and I had to work just to put food on the table for my wife and little boy. As tall as he was, he held his head down and toward the side as if he were a little boy brooding. In the gym he went through the motions. When he skipped rope he would drone, When I get my chance, nobody but me and my opponent. When I get my chance... His new trainers set up sparring sessions and quickly told him he was the next Gerry Cooney. But once the sparring partners began to hit back, he became timid and complained of a couple of minor injuries. Just a sore shoulder. When I get my chance, nobody but me and my opponent. When I get my chance... The gym regulars patted him on the back and treated him like a champion. It wasnt hard to understand how he started to believe in himself. When I get my chance, nobody but me and my opponent. When I get my chance... In front of a capacity crowd at Germain Arena, wearing new shoes and trunks, he got his chance. His opponent was a good foot shorter and at least 10 years older. It seemed odd for this giant of a fighter to go up against such an older and shorter man. But it was even stranger when the shorter fighter pummeled the taller fighter. The giant was simply pushing his punches casually, as if to say, Take my chance, I really dont want it. Against the ropes, the shorter, squat fighter scored repeatedly to the body. It now was no longer a question of whether the giant would win, but of whether he would survive. At the bell, he was barely standing on his own. His trainers had to help him to his stool. You didnt have to hear the ring announcer announce the judges decision to know who won the fight. You could tell who won by the way the giant buried his head into the hood of his robe. He slowly pressed through the crowd and headed for the locker room. He did not shower, though.

It has a porcelain case and the back is marked Manufactured by Ansonia Clock Co., New York, United States of America. A: The Ansonia Clock Co. was founded in Connecticut in 1850, but any Ansonia clock marked with a New York location dates from between 1880 and 1929, the year Ansonia closed. Ansonia bought clock cases from a Bonn, Germany, earthenware and porcelain factory that used the trade name Royal Bonn. Your clock was probably new when your parents received it. If its in perfect condition, it could sell for several hundred dollars. Tip: Old papier-mch jack-o-lanterns originally had a thin piece of paper in the eyeholes. The light from the candle inside showed through the paper. You can make a replacement with tracing paper and watercolors. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Write to Kovels, (Florida Weekly), King Features Syndicate, 300 W. 57th St., New York, NY 10019. COURTESY PHOTOHalloween-related decorations and objects are among todays most popular collectibles. The idea of Halloween can be traced back to some ancient Celtic and early Irish celebrations. The name Halloween comes from an Irish celebration held on Oct. 31, the day before All Saints Day. It also was a harvest festival, so pumpkins and food were featured. But it was not until the early 1900s that Halloween images began to evolve, especially for postcards. Halloween back then was an adult holiday featuring parties and games. It became a childrens holiday, with trick-or-treating and jack-o-lanterns, in the 1940s. Decorations and collectibles became scary and included devils, witches, black cats and skeletons. Today you should look for old die-cut displays, papier-mch jack-o-lanterns and other symbols, noisemakers and costumes anything that looks like a Halloween item. Most common are papier-mch or plastic carved pumpkins, then black cats, skeletons and owls. Higher-priced are witches, bats and odd-looking vegetable people. Most desirable are devils, probably because theyre the hardest to find. But beware. Many copies of old papier-mch figures and candy containers were made in Germany and Asia in the 1990s. They look old, were made from old molds and were originally sold by companies that specialized in sales to flea-market dealers and gift shops. Q: When I was 10 years old, I was given a Mickey Mouse wristwatch. Im 87 now, so I must have received it in about 1933. Mickey is on the round face and his arms move to tell the time. The strap is black leather. Is it valuable? A: The very first Mickey Mouse wristwatches were made by Ingersoll-Waterbury Co. in 1933. It was the worlds first comic character wristwatch and was made in the same round-face style until 1937. Some had metal bands and others, leather bands. If your watch is indeed the first Mickey model and if its in excellent condition, it could sell for $500 or more. If you have the original box, the watch is even more valuable. Q: Do people collect old menus? I have a 1954 menu from the Stork Club in New York. The cover is a color drawing of the dining room filled with celebrities, including Lana Turner, William Holden and Arthur Godfrey. Inside, the priced menu offers a lobster dinner for $3.75, prime rib for $4.25, ice cream for 85 cents and 16 kinds of potatoes. It also notes that cigarette smoking was allowed in all rooms but cigars were limited to two special rooms. A: Yes, there are collectors of old menus. Some collectors would like your menu because of its cover picture of movie stars, while many others would like its record of the food served and its prices. We often forget that in the 1950s, middle-class men (few wives worked outside the home) making $75 a week were well-paid. The dollar of that day is worth about $20 today, so it would take an income of about $1,500 a week to live on the same scale today. Q: I have a doorstop that is shaped like a frog. It says, I croak for the Jackson wagon. Value and history, please. A: The frog doorstop was thought to be a political item made for Andrew Jacksons campaign for president in 1828 or 1832. But 1980s research found that the frog was made in 1880 as a giveaway for the Jackson Wagon Co. of Jackson, Mich. These frogs have sold for $100 to $300 in recent years. Q: Please tell me something about the This Veggie Man driving a pickle balloon that doubles as a jack-o-lantern sold for $4,387.

Here are some capsule summaries of previous reviews: Here are some capsule summaries of previous reviews:Fernandez the Bull, 1201 Piper Blvd., Naples; 254-9855This restaurant has thrived for years at its 1265 Airport Road location. Now, with its sleek second location, even more people can enjoy the authentic Cuban cuisine served up by the hospitable Fernandez family and staff. I can recommend the Cuban nachos, an inventive mix of thinly sliced fried plantains, savory chicken, cheese sauce, capers and parsley (plan to share this one); calamari in a well-seasoned tomato sauce with pepper and onions (a refreshing departure from fried calamari); ropa vieja, a classic dish of shredded flank steak in a tomato sauce with peppers and onions; and shrimp and scallops in white wine, garlic and capers. Yuca in creamy garlic sauce, black beans and yellow rice and sweet fried plantains were great sides. For dessert, you cant go wrong with the flan or the tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2010Loving Hut, 975 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 254-9490Vegans will rejoice, and even diehard carnivores are likely to reconsider their stance after a meal at Loving Hut. Simply put: The food tastes great, and the types of protein in it make it seem as if theres meat in all of the vegan fare served. Using the lively flavor palette of Asia, the restaurant serves dishes such as crispy golden rolls (eggrolls minus the meat), papaya salad, tamarind-laced Thai hot and sour soup, zesty Vietnamese pho and Dancing Mushroom (mushrooms, soy protein, bell pepper, onion and garlic served on a sizzling platter, which presumably makes the mushrooms dance). Even the cheese-free cheesecake was delicious. Soft drinks served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2010Old 41 Restaurant, 25091 Bernwood Drive, Bonita Springs; 948-4123Diner lovers especially those who love the Philadelphia-style version will rejoice at finding Old 41, which doesnt have the chrome-covered exterior, but possesses the heart and soul of a true diner, complete with hoagies, Philly cheese steaks and scrapple. I can attest that the cheese steak is a winner consisting of thinly sliced steak, melted American cheese and grilled onions contained in a sturdy Amoroso Bakery roll. The fries that came with it were golden, crisp and devoid of grease. My companions spinach, feta and onion omelet was well balanced, properly cooked and accompanied by just-right home fries. The boardwalk waffle sundae featuring a Carbons malted waffle with two mounds of Royal Scoop ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and a cherry was perfect for sharing. Service was great from start to finish. Beer and wine served.Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2010USS Nemo Undersea Cuisine, 3745 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 2616366Chef Nicolas Merciers artful way with seafood and just about everything else is impressive. Seafood dominates the menu, but there are also a handful of meat dishes and an adventurous kids menu as well. I loved the 26-item sake menu, from which we sampled two Wakatake and Hakutsuruda; both went well with appetizers of goat cheese and tuna tartare and an imaginative seaweed and seafood trilogy, featuring three kinds of seaweed, salmon, sea bass and lobster. Miso broiled sea bass and diver scallops with roasted red pepper and vanilla sauce were expertly prepared and presented. The trinity of profiteroles which included Japanese plum, adzuki and ginger ice creams was delightful. Somewhat less successful was the service, which was good until dessert, when the server had to also attend to outdoor tables. Tables are tightly grouped, adding a taste of reality to the submarine theme.
