Small hands pressed seeds into garden boxes set up on the lawn just outside the cafeteria at Mike Davis Elementary School one morning earlier this week. The schools nearly 800 students will help the garden grow this semester. In December, they hope to harvest spinach, beets, radish, peas, cabbage, Swiss chard and collard greens. Its part of Teaching Gardens, a new program launched by the American Heart Association that aims to change attitudes about eating and nutrition in response to a glut of overweight Americans. The program is designed to steer children away from fast food and teach them better eating habits by enlisting them directly in the production of good food. Youngsters at Village Oaks Elementary School in Immokalee are also planting a teaching garden this month. The two AHA gardens in Collier County are the first in South Florida.

For more than two centuries, weve tried to put the fine line on what freedom of expression means. The great Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes used that faultless but still imprecise metaphor to suggest a limitation of the James Madison prescription for a free society. Our free society. In effect, none of us is guaranteed the right to falsely shout fire in a theater by the First Amendment, because to do so could cause both panic and death. But we do have the right to shout just about anything else. And not only with words, but with art, good or bad. In painting, music or film, in politics or religion, we can say what we want. (The second part of the First Amendment requires a separation of church from state in order that government can neither help nor hinder when people say what they want about any God they want.) In our society, we get to speak even if it offends those who hold power or absolute belief. The comedic result on the ground, of course, is frequently either the cause of great derision or the subject of bawdy entertainment for many Americans. Or both. Were always offending each other, and were always having to live with it, and with each other. The idea was never just to protect idiots or bullies or mean-spirited cynics or, say, pornographers of this stripe or that, although they often are protected. The idea was to protect rational citizens seeking justice, those who might have to say things dangerously unpopular with the powers that be. Heres the argument put in different terms. Every time a criminal defense attorney argues passionately before a judge and jury to acquit a client who might have committed a crime, that attorney is defending not just the alleged criminal, but us us and our right to a defense no matter how damning the circumstances appear. Its hard for victims to accept the principle, but most Americans have agreed with it. In speech similarly, defend an inept, tasteless or offensive example of free speech and youre defending the potential for the very best in speech, however unpopular it might be. When somebody makes a film suggesting that the Virgin Mary was not a virgin, we might feel outrage. We might write a letter to the editor, but then we go on about our business. Such speech doesnt amount to fire in a theater; it amounts to just a fart in a theater, if you will excuse my vulgarity. And this is where the complication arises, the one that took us so much by surprise in recent days when Muslims in North Africa discovered the film made in California and erupted with a fury that led some of them to kill Americans who had never heard of the film. Here I can explain my gaseous vulgarity. What if there are two theaters? And what if somebody shouts fart in one, but somebody in the next theater hears fire? And what if the people in the next theater react according to their own beliefs, which have nothing to do with James Madison and the First Amendment? What do we do then? Among the bedrock principles of our society even more bedrock than the First Amendment, if thats possible is the notion that bloodshed is universally wrong unless it comes in the defense of life and liberty. Thus an attack that kills an ambassador and his American protectors is an act of war on all Americans. If absolutists can kill Americans because somebody in California makes an offensive movie, then why cant they kill Americans because somebody in New York makes an offensive painting, or somebody in Florida wears an offensive dress, or somebody in Chicago writes an offensive book? It amounts to this: The people who did it, and the people who support or hide them, need to be found, identified and then punished. Backing away from tyrants or bullies has never proved a good idea. But before we saddle up, gun up and ride out, however, lets try for a little perspective a little understanding. From the beginning of our experiment in independent living and government, weve struggled mightily with the principle of free speech. The Puritans, for example, did not often define free speech the way we do now. Critics of religion or the status quo in the 17th or 18th centuries could be killed or run out of town, work and church by members of their own communities if they exercised free speech. In the 19th and 20th centuries in many places in America, free speech was merely a hypothetical. Express the wrong opinions about the rights of blacks in some Southern towns between about 1865 and 1965 and somebody might well turn up to beat you or kill you. And what would happen now if somebody in California decided to make a film mocking blacks in America by the liberal use of the word nigger a film that promoted the worst of the racial stereotypes too many white Americans accepted for decades or longer? Bloodshed in the form of riots might well be the result. And the perpetrators, no matter how deeply offended, would be brought to justice, I hope. Conversely, those who defend the right of such filmmakers to create bad art without being beaten or killed should be celebrated and applauded. That self-awareness on our part will increase our strength, because it will help Americans react to unjust brutality with dispassionate resolve. And that is our best recourse.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 We are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, but how will our economy fare if our waters keep getting covered in stinking slime and algae? When nitrogen and phosphorus pollution builds up in rivers and estuaries, we experience dead fish on our beaches, algae piled three feet high along the shore, closed water treatment plants and dead zones in our sounds and bays. Without quantifiable limits on the amount of so-called nutrient pollution, which comes from sewage, manure and fertilizer, our waters will never recover. Excess nitrogen and phosphorous pollution in our waters has reached dangerously high levels, triggering toxic outbreaks of algae and bacteria. Floridas waters are being poisoned. We need to keep the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines and the Clean Water Act rules intact. However, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has drafted a substitute for EPAs rules that would only require pollution controls after waters have been severely degraded, requiring expensive cleanup at taxpayer expense. These industry-friendly standards will allow unsafe pollution levels rather than following the common-sense limits set by the U.S. EPA under the Clean Water Act. The basis of the Clean Water Act was enacted in 1948 as the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, and was significantly reorganized and expanded in 1972. Lets not throw away decades of water protection. The quality of Floridas water puts our tourism, fishing and real estate values at risk. These industries are the backbone of our economy, and without them, we may never see a sustainable economic recovery. The EPAs Clean Water Act standards will not only protect our health and our environment, they will also help us restore the reason people want to live, visit and invest here. Florida is an important state in the upcoming elections. Floridians must let President Obama know now that Florida deserves better and that he should enforce the Clean Water Act to clean up Floridas waters. Obama should say no to the Scott Administrations dirty water rules. For more information, visit www.conservancy. org/take action. p d t F W t andrewMCELWAINEPresident, Conservancy of Southwest Florida GUEST OPINIONNo room for Dirty Water Rules amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Mayor Rahm-neys attack on the Chicago teachers unionUnions are under attack in the United States not only from people like Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, but now, with the teachers strike in Chicago, from the very core of President Barack Obamas inner circle, his former chief of staff and current mayor of that city, Rahm Emanuel. Twenty-five thousand teachers and support staff are on strike there, shutting down the public school system in the nations thirdlargest school district. This fight now raging in Chicago, Obamas hometown, has its roots in this historic stronghold of organized labor, and in the movement started one year ago this week, Occupy Wall Street. The conflict presents a difficult moment for Obama, who will need union support to prevail in his race with Mitt Romney, but who is inextricably linked, politically, to his brash, expletive-spewing former aide, Mayor Rahm-ney Emanuel. At the heart of the conflict is how schools will be run in Chicago: locally, from the grass roots, with teacher and parent control, or top-down, by a school board appointed by Emanuel. Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, worked as a board-certified chemistry teacher at King College Prep High School in Chicago. She understands how the system works. Months before the strike, I asked her about the situation in Chicago. The newly elected Emanuel had an appointed board comprised mostly of corporate executives, the Academy for Urban School Leadership. Lewis told me, One of the biggest problems is that when you have a CEO in charge of a school system, as opposed to a superintendent, a real educator, what ends up happening is that they literally have no clue as to how to run the schools. The AUSL not only relies on business executives with no education experience to run schools, but also brings in recent college graduates to teach. These recruits cost very little to pay, but arrive with little or no teaching experience. Pauline Lipman is a professor of education and policy studies at the University of Illinois-Chicago. She explained, Chicago was the birthplace of this neoliberal corporate reform agenda of highstakes testing, paying teachers based on test scores, disinvesting in neighborhood schools and then closing them and turning them over to charter schools. Lipman credits Arne Duncan with driving this corporatization of Chicagos public schools. Duncan, President Obamas secretary of education, was the chief executive officer of the Chicago Public Schools, where he led the institution of charter schools, 90 percent of which are nonunion. Arne Duncan pushed through this agenda of closing neighborhood schools, turning them over to private operators or expanding charter schools and having charter schools come in ... and increasingly putting more pressure on teachers to respond to high-stakes tests. That agenda has been really devastating in Chicago. Chicago is also the epicenter of the community pushback against the Duncan/Obama/Emanuel attack on public schools and the teachers union. Lewis comes out of the Caucus of Rank-andFile Educators, CORE, which took over leadership of the union with a commitment to transparent school administration. Opposition to Emanuels dictates has provoked the union into this historic strike. Phil Cantor, a strike captain for Teachers for Social Justice, explained: Were not allowed legally to strike over anything but compensation. But teachers are not most interested in compensation; were most interested in being able to do our jobs for the students we serve. Thanks to the grass-roots organizing that preceded the strike (in the same Chicago streets where Obama was once a community organizer), the striking teachers enjoy extensive parent and student support. One parent, Rhoda Rae Gutierrez, has two children in elementary school in Chicago. She is a member of the group Parents 4 Teachers and is marching with the teachers. She told me, When we fight for the rights of teachers for a fair contract, fair compensation, lower class size, well-resourced schools, having psychologists, enough social workers, enough support staff, enough aides in the classroom, nurses ... when teachers have these resources in their schools, we know that our children can do incredible things. This struggle reflects the essence of Occupy Wall Street community members across class, race and other traditional divides uniting in disciplined opposition to corporate power. Author and journalist Chris Hedges, who has observed the Occupy movement closely, put the strike into context: The teachers strike in Chicago is arguably one of the most important labor actions in probably decades. If it does not prevail, you can be certain that the template for the attack on the union will be carried out across the country against other teachers unions and against the last redoubt of union activity, which is in the public sector, of course firemen and police. For people who are wondering where Occupy is today, just look at the streets of Chicago. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Hes the current president of the Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District and the former vice president of Vergina Italian Restaurant on the avenue. Vergina is the radiating star of Macedonia, he says, adding his parents and brother immigrated to the United States from there, and he has always been proud of that part of his heritage. Lou was born and raised in Canton, Ohio, the first in his family to be born in the U.S.A. He graduated from Ohio University with a bachelors degree in commerce, majoring in accounting. As a certified management accountant, he invested 25 years at Troy, Ohio-based Hobart Corp., where he held various accounting and finance positions, culminating in his service as vice president and controller from 1980 to 1984. In 1984, he joined Gold Bond Ice Cream in Green Bay, Wis., as senior vice president and CFO. And in 1989, he came to Naples to operate several restaurants for the Rimaco Corp. In 1987, after his first wife died, he spent a month doing volunteer work in his familys homeland. I became totally hooked, he says, calling himself a selfappointed ambassador for the country. In 2007, Macedonia nominated him as an honorary consul to The United States of America from The Republic of Macedonia. When he inquired about his official duties, he says, he was told to just keep doing what you have been doing in helping your country of heritage. In February 2008, the Macedonian ambassador to the United States and the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce celebrated the Republic of Macedonias opening of an honorary consulate office in Naples. At a luncheon in his honor, Lou was greeted by a standing ovation from more than 200 friends and local dignitaries. Lou has served on numerous volunteer organizations in the local community and also co-founded the Greater Balkans Luncheon, now in its 11th year as part of the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. He also has been honored by his alma mater, Ohio University, with the Distinguished Service Award, has been named a Distinguished Alumnus by his high school in Canton, Ohio. He had the professional distinction of being elected chair of the Institute of Management Accountants, the largest management accounting organization in the world. He holds the two-fold honor of being the youngest and the first CMA to serve as chair of the institute, a post he held in 1982-83. He and his wife, Patricia, have lived in Pelican Bay for more than 22 years. h a a o d c bobHARDEN e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org PROFILES IN PARADISEA commitment to community service, from Macedonia to Naples Talking points with Lou VlashoMentors: Many along the way, but a couple that are near the top are John Lafferty, who hired me out of college to work at Hobart; Carl Hoover, my rst manager at Hobart; and Bill Becker.

Starting Sunday, Oct. 27, and ending Sunday, Nov. 3, polls in Collier County as well as in Hendry, Hardee, Hillsborough and Monroe counties will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., giving early voters 96 hours to cast votes in advance. DOJ also approved the five preclearance counties early voting schedule for the upcoming General Election. The federal approval of the early voting changes completes the federal approval process for all 80 sections of the 2011 elections bill. Every section can now be implemented statewide in future elections. The approval of these changes is a tremendous victory for Florida voters, said Secretary of State Ken Detzner.

Meanwhile, embassies are being blown up. Wars are being waged. Children are starving. Cell phones are ringing. Only one course of action remains to the extraordinary men and women at Florida Weekly, therefore: to abandon pretension. To quit the ranks of those who provide serious, substantive journalism to astute readers and careful thinkers concerned with thorny issues, enlightened cultural events and the liveliest values of our contemporary society. Instead, were just going to joke about it. More precisely, were going to let our friends and acquaintances joke about it. What the heck (from Risky Business, Sometimes you just gotta say, What the heck!) We might even let strangers tell a joke or two. So, for the fourth year in a row, Florida Weekly offers our long-suffering readers a break from the norm (not to mention from the sane and the rational). This week, we proudly present the most poignant, the most powerful and sometimes the most painful truths that comedy can carry. After all, there is nothing more serious than a good joke. Sure, were a touch crazy. Its been a long year. This has been a tough quarter. We had a rough morning. But at least we admit it. Insane people are always sure that they are fine, Nora Ephron said. Its only the sane people who are willing to admit that theyre crazy. Didnt we just lose her this year? Yes. And that sucks. But remember, its a presidential election year. I went to the White House, met the president, Richard Pryor once reported during the run-up to another such year. We in trouble. Exactly. Which is why were doing what were doing, instead of what we should be doing, this week. At this point in September we feel like Elwood in the 1980 comedy, The Blues Brothers: Its 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, its dark and were wearing sunglasses. And we hope you feel like Jake: Hit it! he said. Enjoy the annual jokes issue well see you on the other side. Roger Williams, Florida Weekly Knock knock Whos there? Gorilla Gorilla who? Gorilla me a hamburger, please. Im hungry. Laura Ragain Executive director Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida Intercepted phone call from Steve Jobs above to Bill Gates on earth: Jobs: Hi, Bill. Guess where Im calling from? Gates: Heaven? Jobs: Well sort of. Im floating around on an iCloud! Gates: Whats it like up there? Jobs: Great. Best of all, there are no houses, no buildings which means no Windows and no Gates. Jack Tymanns Jill Haughie of offers a few words of wisdom about men: Men are luxuries, not necessities. Cher Maleness remains a recessive genetic trait like color blindness and hemophilia. Elizabeth Gould Davis Men think theyre more important than women because their suit jackets have secret pockets on the inside. Rita Rudner Only a divinity could determine which is funnier: Mans dream of Woman, or Woman as she is. Miriam Beard Save a boyfriend for a rainy day... and another in case it doesnt rain. Mae West The softer a mans head, the louder his socks. Helen Rowland Dont let a man put anything over you ... except an umbrella. Mae West A man is flying in a hot-air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts, Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my friend I would meet him half an hour ago, but I dont know where I am. The man below says: Yes, youre in a large red hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field between 40 and 41 degrees latitude and 120 and 124 degrees west longitude. You must be an associate, says the balloonist. I am, replies the man. How did you know? Well, says the balloonist, everything you have told me is technically correct, but its of absolutely no use to me and I still dont know where I am. The man below says, Ah, I can tell from your reaction that you must be a partner. Well, yes, replies the balloonist, but how did you know? Because, says the man below, You dont know where you are, or where youre going, youve gotten to where you are primarily due to hot air, and youve made a promise you have no idea how to keep, but expect me to solve your problem. Youre in the same position as you were before we met, but somehow now its my fault. Jeannette Showalter Florida Weekly columnist Once there was a golfer whose drive landed on an anthill. Rather than move the ball, he decided to hit it where it lay. He gave a mighty swing. Clouds of dirt and sand and ants exploded from the spot. Everything but the golf ball. It sat in the same spot. So he lined up and tried another shot. Clouds of dirt and sand and ants went flying again. The golf ball didnt even wiggle. Two ants survived. One dazed ant said to the other, Whoa! What are we going to do? Said the other ant: I dont know about you, but Im going to get on the ball. Cynthia Mott Q: Why are there only 239 beans in a can of Irish bean soup? A: Because if there were one more, it would be two-fahrty! Rick Borman, president Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speaker Series During a recent password audit by a company, it was found that an employee was using the following password: MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofySacramentoWhen asked why she had such a long password, she rolled her eyes and said, Hello! It has to be at least eight characters and include at least one capital. Jim Rideoutte, executive director The Naples Players A pirates sitting in a pub after his ship has come to shore, telling tales from the high seas. One of the men in the bar asks, Why do ye have that wooden leg? The pirate looks down at the stump on his leg and says, Aye, thats from the time me crew made me walk the plank. A shark swam by and gobbled up me leg. And ye hook? a wench asks. Howd you come to have a hook for a hand? The pirate raises the metal hook for everyone to see. Aye, that was from a sword fight with old Black Beard. The bastard took my hand clean off. From down the table, a drunkard raises his head. And ye eye patch? Aye, that was from the time a bird pooped in me eye. The pirate taps the black patch with his hook. It was me first day with the hook. Artis Henderson Florida Weekly columnist A newlywed couple just moved into their new house. One day the husband comes home from work and his wife says, Honey, you know, in the upstairs bathroom, one of the pipes is leaking. Could you fix it? The husband just looked at his wife and said, What do I look like, Mr. Plumber? A few days went by, and he comes home from work and again his wife asks for a favor, Honey, the car wont start. I think that it needs a new battery. Could you change it for me? What do I look like, Mr. Goodwrench? was his response. Another couple of weeks go by, and its raining pretty hard. His wife then finds a leak in the roof. She pleads with him as hes walking through the door. Honey, theres a leak on the roof! Can you please fix it? He just looked at her and said, What do I look like, Bob Vila? and sat down with a beer and watched a game on tv. One weekend the husband woke up and it was pouring pretty hard, but the leak on the roof was gone! Speaking of leaks, he also went to take a shower, and he found that the one pipe behind the sink wasnt leaking anymore either. His wife was coming home just then, and as she walked through the door, the husband asked, Honey, how come there arent any more leaks, and the cars running? She replied nonchalantly, Oh, the other day I was picking up the mail, and I ran into one of our new neighbors, Jon. What a nice man. He came over and fixed everything. Wow, did he charge us anything? asked the husband. No, he just said that hed do it for free if I either baked him a cake or had sex with him. she said. Cool. What kind of cake did you make? asked the husband. Cake? What do you think I look like, Betty Crocker? Did you hear about the new corduroy pillows? Theyre making headlines! A priest, a rabbi and a Baptist minister walk into a bar. The bartender says, Is this a joke? Q: How do you know when someones gone to Harvard? A: Oh, theyll tell you. An American gent was sitting at a bar and noticed a bowl of crackers in front of three large English ladies. He asked, Can you lovely English ladies pass the crackers, please? The first lady turned, and replied loudly in a surly voice, Thats Wales, dear sir. The gentleman was taken aback. Well, excuse me, he offered. Can one of you whales pass the crackers? Dennis Kirk Q: Why are pastry chefs mean? A: Because they beat eggs and whip cream. Debbi RicciJOKESFrom page 1

Debbi Ricci A few favorites from Naples Mayor John Sorey: A fishermans classified ad: Wife wanted. Must be able to dig, clean, cook, grub for worms and clean fish. Must have own boat with motor. Please send photograph of boat. A couple was on a driving vacation when a state trooper pulled the husband over and said: Sir, do you realize your wife fell out of the car several miles back?

In fact, her blood pressure is fine, shes going to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and if she continues to impr ove, Dr. Jones is going to send her home tomorrow. Caller: Thank God! Thats wonderful! Thats fantastic! Volunteer: From your enthusiasm, I take it you must be a family member or a very close friend. Caller: No, Im Nancy Smith in Room 302. My doctor doesnt tell me anything!(The mayor calls that one my favorite NCH joke. Ha Ha!) A man about to have a heart transplant was offered the choice of either a 26-year-old marathon runners heart or that of a 62-year-old IRS agent. He picked the agents heart because he said it had never been used. A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store but couldnt find one big enough for her family. Do these turkeys gett any bigger? she inquired of the stock boy. No, maam, he answered. Theyre dead. Delores looked out the window and saw our German shepherd shaking the life out of a neighbors prize rabbit. These were not our favorite neighbors, so she knew this was going to be a disaster. She grabbed a broom and pummeled the dog until it dropped the now extremely dead rabbit out of its month. She panicked. She called me and asked what was she going to do? I told her to take the rabbit inside, give it a bath, blow dry it to its original fluffiness, comb it so it looked good and then slip over and put it back in its cage. About an hour later, she heard screams coming from the neighbors wife. She rushed over and asked, Whats going on?? Our prize rabbit! Our prize rabbit! the neighbor cried. He died a week ago, we buried him and now hes back! Wifes diary entry: I met my husband for a drink after shopping. I was running late and he seemed distracted, disinterested and unengaged. I felt bad, but suggested we find a more intimate setting. We left for dinner, but he seemed distracted. He didnt pay attention or have any interest in conversation with me. We went home and he turned on the television for a while. He demonstrated no life, no interest. He went to bed saying almost nothing. I dont think he loves me any more. He must be seeing someone else. My life is ruined. Husbands diary entry: Four putts. Who four putts?

A year later the man opens his door and finds the same snail on his front porch. The snail looks up and says, What was that all about? Why do gorillas have big nostrils? Because they have big fingers. What can you sit on, brush your teeth with and eat soup with? A chair, a toothbrush and a spoon. Whats brown and sticky? A stick. Whats green and sings? Elvis Parsley. A seamstress is sewing while sitting alongside river, and her thimble falls into the water. When she cries out, the Lord appears and asks: My dear child, why are you crying? The seamstress replies that her thimble has fallen into the water and she needs it to help her husband in making a living for their family. The Lord dips His hand into the water and pulls up a golden thimble set with pearls. Is this your thimble? He asks. The seamstress replies, No. The Lord again dips into the river. He holds out a silver thimble ringed with sapphires. Is this your thimble? He asks. Again, the seamstress replies, No. The Lord reaches down again and came up with a simple leather thimble. Is this your thimble? He asks. Yes, the seamstress tells him. The Lord is pleased with the womans honesty and gives her all three thimbles to keep. The seamstress goes home happy. Some years later, the seamstress is walking with her husband along the riverbank when her husband falls into the river and disappears under the water. When the seamstress cries out, the Lord again appears and asks, Why are you crying? Oh, Lord, my husband has fallen into the river! The Lord goes down into the water and comes up with George Clooney. Is this your husband? He asks. Yes! the seamstress exclaims. The Lord is furious. You lied! That is an untruth! The seamstress replies, Forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said no to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said no to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said yes, you would have given me all three. Lord, Im not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands. THATS why I said yes to George Clooney. And so the Lord let her keep him. The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, its for a good and honorable reason and always in the best interest of others. Thats our story, and were sticking to it. Signed, All Us Women And finally, a few words of wisdom from Neapolitan Trout Scanlan, who attributes them to an old farmer friend: Keep skunks and bankers at a distance. Meanness dont just happen overnight. Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads. It doesnt take a very big person to carry a grudge. Every path has a few puddles. When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. Dont judge folks by their relatives. Dont interfere with somethin that aint bothering you none. Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment. Letting the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in. If you get to thinkin youre a person of some influence, try orderin somebody elses dog around. Some days all you can do is smile and wait for some kind soul to come along and pull you out of the pickle youve gotten yourself into.

Suite 4 Naples, FL 34109239-594-5456 As we year-rounders prepare for the return of the snowbirds, I think its a wonderful time for us to explore our own interesting backyard before the roads, restaurants and attractions get crowded with seasonal folk again. If you havent been there lately, I highly recommend a day trip to Everglades City, the original county seat of Collier County. Although there are many colorful and historical treasures in Everglades City, all perfect for sightseeing, I want to spotlight the Museum of the Everglades. Formerly known as the Collier Town Laundry building, this tiny, single-story structure on West Broadway was built in 1927. It was here, in the Town of Everglades (it didnt become Everglades City until 1953), that workmen from the Collier Corp. sent their uniforms to be cleaned, and where all the linens from the nearby Rod & Gun Club were laundered. Its rumored that Barron Collier sent his laundry here, too, via the mail boat from Useppa Island. Two of the more prominent families who leased the laundry from the Collier family and operated it in the early years were the Ayers and the Echols (longtime Naples resident Ann Wynn, wife of the late Don Wynn of Wynns Market, was an Echols before marrying). Without sufficient labor to keep the operation running, the laundry closed its doors during World War II. Over the subsequent years, it housed a barbershop, an insurance company, a restaurant and even a church. In 1965 the Everglades Womens Club took ownership of the building and for some time operated a thrift shop there. When the club disbanded in 1988, its remaining members gave the building to Collier County with the stipulation that it be used as a museum for memorabilia that would provide a peek at the early days and events that shaped Everglades City and Collier County. The restoration process took 10 long years, numerous fundraisers and a steady stream of volunteers, according to a 1999 interview with the clubs founding president, Pauline Reeves. Orlando-based architect Chalmers Yielding worked on the project and helped ensure that 70 percent of the lumber from the original structure was restored. The Museum of the Everglades opened to much fanfare on April 26, 1998, to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the opening of the Tamiami Trail. It was the first satellite museum in the County County museum system. In 2001, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Todays museum visitors see numerous artifacts, models, miniature dioramas and historical photographs that capture the essence of life in this region commonly referred to as The Last Frontier. Reflecting the original function of the building, there are several antique laundry and dry-cleaning machines on display. Theres also an area for public educational programs. The Museum of the Everglades is three miles south of the junction of County Road 29 and the Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41). Take County Road 29 south into Everglades City to 105 West Broadway, just off the town circle, across the street from McLeod Park. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. Admission is free, although donations are welcome. For more information, call 695-0008 or visit www.evergladesmuseum. com. Within the same few blocks, day-trippers can view and tour the Bank of Everglades (today the Everglades Historical Bed & Breakfast); the former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Depot (the Seafood Depot restaurant today); the former Collier County Courthouse (known as City Hall today); as well as the nearby famous Everglades City Rod & Gun Club. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981. Following a years stint as a reporter for the former weekly Everglades Echo newspaper, she began freelancing.

Park Royal Hospital has been approved as an involuntary commitment facility for persons believed to have acute or chronic mental disorders that make them a danger to themselves or others. The private 76-bed mental health facility opened earlier this year on the HealthPark Medical Center campus in south Fort Myers to serve the seven-county Southwest Florida region. Commonly referred to as the Baker Act, the Florida Mental Health Act of 1971 provides for involuntary examination, which must be based on behavioral evidence and can be initiated by judges, law enforcement officials, physicians or mental health professionals. Examinations can last up to 72 hours after a person is deemed medically stable. The goal is to protect the patient and the patients rights, and to establish the most appropriate treatment in the least restrictive environment. Using the Baker Act is stressful for both patients and their families, but it is an important tool in getting treatment, says Mike Metcalf, president and CEO of Park Royal Hospital. Park Royal is well equipped to deal with this type of emergency, he says, with highly trained staff and facilities that include an onsite courtroom for legal hearings. We encourage calls from people who are facing behavioral health issues, as well as from concerned family members or friends, whether there is an emergency or if the problem is ongoing, says Ed Handy, director of clinical operations. Our staff members are available around the clock to answer questions, provide information and determine if Park Royal Hospital can help. Park Royal Hospital provides treatment services on an inpatient and outpatient basis, treating adult and geriatric patients for depression, anxiety, mood disorders, memory issues, post-traumatic stress disorders and cooccurring mental health and substance abuse issues. Any concerned person, including family members, friends or companions, physicians or social workers, can make a referral. Admissions are made 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Therapeutic environments provide physically separate facilities for patients, programs and treatments. For more information, call 985-2760 or visit www.ParkRoyalHospital.com.

She walks a little bit awkwardly, but she gets around just fine. She needs a high-quality, high-protein diet to keep her free of diabetes. Jessie is just one of the special-needs cats available from Brigids Crossing. See more between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, at Florida Motorsports, 6329 Naples Blvd., and during the same hours Friday, Sept. 21, at For Footed Friends, 13040 Livingston Road (in Marquesa Plaza next to Sports Clips). Everyone who takes home a cat will also take home a bag of dry cat food from For Footed Friends, a certificate for a free veterinary exam from Dr. Kim Schemmer at Gulfshore Animal Hospital, a $10 gift certificate toward the purchase of anything in the gift shop at Florida Motorsports and a gift certificate for a free feline nail trim at Marquesa Veterinary Clinic.

Physicians Regional Healthcare System is sponsoring the Teaching Gardens effort in Collier County, helping provide materials such as garden beds, seeds and soil. Some of these kids dont have access to health-care educational opportunities, says PRHS CEO Todd Lupton. The most important thing is their health, but they get so little exposure to the proper way to eat and exercise This is our small part to play and to keep them out of our hospitals long term. Adam Winkle, a science and technology resource teacher at Mike Davis, is managing the program there. Every kid will have a hand in this new garden, he says. Theyll plant the seeds, theyll grow them, theyll water them, theyll watch them. Then theyll make the connection. Theyll learn, Oh, OK, I can actually use this to strengthen my body in a healthy way rather than taking some pesticide-induced fruit. The students will potentially monitor freezing temperatures, thieving rabbit and anything else that affects their garden. Mr. Winkle will keep a close eye on the progress and supplement it with lessons about health and nutrition. He plans on steering his charges toward success, while otherwise taking a handsoff approach. It will be the students garden. If they need help, Ill be there, he says. I give them the materials, but the more they put into it the more theyll get out of it.

Rick SantorumFor three decades, Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speaker Series has presented a rich palette of American and international icons. They include U.S. presidents, foreign prime ministers, historians, astronomers, satirists, art curators, social commentators and illusionists. Through the years, they have candidly shared their dreams, their accomplishments and their disappointments. Over the coming months, we will visit with a select group of these worldrenowned figures. Some will hail from our 30-year history, and some will be introduced to the Town Hall stage in our 2013 season. Some are acquaintances and some are good friends. Were certain that all will entertain and/or provoke thought among Florida Weekly readers with their unique perspectives and candid commentary. We start with Rick Santorum, the former U.S. senator from Pennyslvania, who will appear at Town Hall on March 22. Sen. Santorum is perhaps best known for his recent bid seeking the Republican nomination for the highest office in the land. Many are aware of his strong conservative positions, which include among them shunning big government. Few, however, realize that Sen. Santorum served eight years on the Senate Armed Services Committee and as such became and remains a wellbriefed expert on Middle Eastern affairs, including Iran, Islamic Fundamentalism and the Muslim Brotherhood. I had the chance to talk with Sen. Santorum recently while we were both in Dallas. Q: What does the recent success of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt mean to regional stability? A: It means its a whole new ball game. Its hard to overstate the long-term potential impact on the stability in the region and its impact on American and Israeli security. The Obama administrations willingness to abandon a longtime U.S. ally for Islamists is disappointing, to say the least. Leading from behind is not a strategy. The current administrations willingness and to some extent, that of the previous administration of George W. Bush to equate elections with democracy have contributed to this instability. Meaningful democracy guarantees the rights of minorities, including freedom of conscience and religion. Egyptian Copts are the largest minority faith in the Middle East, and their future is even more precarious as Islamists work to consolidate their power. Q: Civil war rages on in Syria. If the Assad regime falls, what are the probabilities of a legitimate government of the people? How are Fundamentalism and Sharia law likely to factor? A: The administrations willingness to embrace our foes has sent the wrong message in Syria as well. President Obama chose to reverse existing policy and send an American ambassador to Syria just as the oppression was heating up. Much like his refusal to support those who rose up in Iran to protest the regime, it was the wrong message at the wrong time. Standing on our principles will promote our interests and those of our allies. A key factor will be the influence that Al Qaeda, other radical Islamists and the Iranian regime have going forward in Syria. Appeasing radical Islamists is not a long-term strategy for promoting peace. Q: The Muslim Brotherhood is deeply hostile toward Israel. Is there still hope for a lasting peace and cooperation based on Camp David Accords? A : Islamists in Egypt, including the Muslim Brotherhood, hold positions that conflict with basic human rights and preclude meaningful pluralistic governance. The brotherhoods credo is: God is our objective; the Quran is our constitution; the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations. While new Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi says his country will honor the treaty with Israel, time will tell. Other sectors of Egyptian society that do not embrace political Islam will need to strengthen in order to be a restraining force against this direction. It is also up to the U.S. to make clear to Egypt that it is in its interest to honor its commitment to peace with Israel and to support freedoms for minorities. Any foreign assistance should be conditioned on this. Q: What role should America play in maintaining peace and promoting true democracy in the region? A: At the heart of the challenge in promoting true democracy is the philosophy and religious beliefs of radical Islam. In contrast to radical Islam, we stand for equal treatment of women, freedom of conscience and religion and the security of Israel. We stand against violent Jihadism. Our allies and our enemies need to know where we stand. The alternative is less security and greater danger. Rick Borman is the president and producer of the Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speakers Series. Look for Town Hall Talk in Florida Weekly again on Oct. 4, when Mr. Borman interviews Mia Farrow.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 An update on patient satisfaction and strategic planning at NCHFrom time to time, I share with readers a peek into the NCH board of trustees deliberations. Two of the boards most important committees those for quality/patient satisfaction and strategic planning/marketing met to assess our current position and plan for our future. The Quality/Patient Satisfaction Committee is chaired by Dr. John Lewis, vice chairman of the Emergency Department. He reported that our toplevel metrics of mortality and lengthof-stay are improving, while 30-day readmissions have remain unchanged. We are the only local hospital system that has not been penalized by Medicare for excess 30-day readmissions. Our mortality is approaching the best in the nation. Length-of-stay is similar to that of our peers, and we are becoming more and more efficient in order to rank among the best. Our number of inpatient adverse drug events is much better than the benchmark. We experienced only one central line infection this past year in all of our ICUs, and ventilator-associated pneumonia has been zero since February. Core measures including heart failure, pneumonia, heart attack, surgical care improvement and global immunization are all tracking well. Outpatient metrics including an aspirin on arrival at the ED for heart attack victims, antibiotic timing for surgery patients, pain management, and rapid stroke intervention are also moving in the right direction. Total hospital falls per 1,000 patient days is around the median of peer hospitals. Our pressure sore rate is superb but not perfect, and our use of physical restraints lower than expected. The Strategic Planning/Marketing Committee is chaired by Mariann MacDonald, who also serves as chair of the board of trustees. Her briefing started with a Mayo affiliate update that focused on how an eMayo consult kept a patient close to home while providing access to a Mayo world expert on a rare multigenerational disease. We will continue our Mayo learning and sharing process, focused initially on cardiology and patient satisfaction, with plans to broaden the pipeline as we gain experience. We will also be sharing our knowledge of Smart Rooms, as Mayo Jacksonville adds two new patient floors with the same technology. NCH, working with our Cerner partner, is the alpha site for Smart Rooms, and we are more than happy to share our expertise. Meanwhile, This is My Hospital continues to be a resounding promotional success with deep penetration and recognition in Southwest Florida. Becoming a Mayo affiliate adds greatly to how well we can serve our patients, and also to our credibility. Other recent positives: repeating as a U.S. News & World Report top hospital, and being named as having Best Doctors by the National Research Corp. In addition to strategic planning/ marketing and quality/patient satisfaction, our board of trustees focuses on these areas: finance/operational efficiency, workforce recruitment/retention, growth of share/size of market and philanthropy/fundraising. Were making progress in each area, as we review how to better serve our community and help grow southwest Floridas new, major economic engine health care. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System.

Living with epilepsyDisease creates opportunities for mentoring, teaching BY DANNY ROSENFELDSpecial to Florida WeeklyAs someone who has lived with epilepsy for almost 17 years, my life has been filled with experiences that no one should have to endure. At the same time, however, I believe that epilepsy has also brought out the best in me as a mentor and teacher. American psychologist and philosopher William James once said that if you believe life is worth living, your belief will help create the fact. I believe that everyone who lives with epilepsy deserves the chance to live life to the fullest. As a mentor for an organization called H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People with Epilepsy), I have the opportunity to share my hope with others so that they can do not just survive with epilepsy, but truly live. H.O.P.E. mentors are individuals who are living with epilepsy or family members who have made a commitment to share their personal experiences with epilepsy through this program. Each certified mentor must complete training through which he or she learns a curriculum developed by leaders in the field of epilepsy. Mentors also learn how to best share their experiences and stories about living with epilepsy. As an H.O.P.E. mentor, Ive had experiences I will treasure forever. During the summer of 2011, I served as a volunteer at Camp Boggy Creek for kids suffering from various disorders, including epilepsy. Also in 2011, I worked with Susan Eddins of the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida to provide Collier County public school nurses with the knowledge they need to observe and treat students in the school system who suffer from epilepsy. Ive since done the same thing with the staff of the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples. I count these experiences as among the many opportunities epilepsy has given me to bring out the best in me as a mentor and teacher while giving others hope. My hope is to continue reaching out to other groups in the community so everyone understands epilepsy and how they can help those living with the disease have a better life. I am so grateful to everyone who made our first two Walk the Talk for Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders events in Naples such an enormous success. We were able to raise more than $60,000 and involve more than 350 people in the effort from throughout Southwest Florida. These funds made it possible for more educational programs and more support for local people living with epilepsy. Our goal this year is to double our attendance and funds raised. All the funds collected will again be donated to the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida.All in the family I like to live by this quote from Simi in the Dark-Hunter series of books: We have three kinds of family. Those we are born to, those who are born to us and those we let into our hearts. I believe everyone deserves to be part of a family, and through my experiences with epilepsy, the family in my heart has grown exponentially. As the founder of the SWFL Epilepsy Educational Series and Support Group, I find it incredibly gratifying to know that individuals and families in our community have found a new family of the HEALTHY LIVINGSEE EPILEPSY, A21 u allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

Two such families that I have let into my heart are the Kirks and the Wolfes. Both families needed a way to express their worries about issues that they were facing. The Kirks had been attending a support group for kids with autism, and though it was helpful, it just wasnt the same as connecting with families struggling with epilepsy. Through the SWFL Epilepsy Educational Series and Support Group, they have not only received encouragement and support but have had the opportunity to learn from leading neurologists, psychologists and even life and job coaches about how to help their daughter, Molly, prepare for the rest of her life. The Wolfes had been searching for answers to questions about their sons epilepsy. The support group has helped them help 14-year-old Jacob learn how to cope with his epilepsy. As someone who attended elementary, middle and high school while having epilepsy and faced the same difficulties, I decided to be a mentor to Jacob and Molly. Yes, epilepsy has taken a lot from me, but it has also given me the opportunity to do what I love and bring hope to others who struggle to live with epilepsy. Ive realized that there is a lot more that I can do, so my plan is to continue along this path, one step at a time. COURTESY PHOTOH.O.P.E. mentor Danny Rosenfeld with Molly Wolfe.

PET TALESOh, ratsBad PR aside, rats can be wonderful pets for kids or adults BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickPeople are always asking me to recommend a good pet for a child an affectionate animal that can be cared for with a minimum of adult assistance. A rabbit? they ask. I shake my head. Rabbits, especially the bigger varieties, are hard for a child to hold. When they dont feel secure, rabbits will kick and by doing so will sometimes break their backs. The result? A dead rabbit and a heartbroken child. So no rabbits, at least not for young children. Mice? Too small, too fragile, I reply. Hamster? Better, but too interested in sleeping during the day, plus theyre natural escape artists and somewhat nippy, I say. Well, what then? the parent will finally demand. To them I say, Rats. And after the air clears of expressions of revulsion and disgust, I explain why a healthy rat from a reputable source is a great pet for a child and indeed for almost any animal lover. Forget horror movies and the bubonic plague. Were not talking about wild rats, but domesticated ones. Let go of everything youve ever thought about rats and consider the benefits with an open mind. Rats are social animals. Many small pets dont like being handled, but rats get used to careful socialization easily, and come to enjoy riding in pockets and on shoulders. They like people! Rats are smart. Rats respond quickly to food-based training and seem to love performing. A friend of mine trained a rat for her college-level psychology course, and came to like the little guy so much that hes now a dotedon pet in her home. Rats are agile and sturdy. Try to get a guinea pig to run a maze or climb a ladder and youll appreciate the fleetfootedness of a rat. Unlike mice, rats can stand up to the handling and, occasionally, to the unintentional mishandling of well-meaning children. Rats are cute. Think sleek, shiny fur with dark, glossy eyes and cute little ears. You say its the tail that gets to you? Give a rat a break. If he just had a fluffy tail, hed be a squirrel, and people would give him nuts in the park. Really, is that fair? Rats are diverse. Did you know that rats come in many more colors and patterns than the gray-brown of a street rat and the white of a lab rat? Think colors such as silver mink, platinum, blue and chocolate, and markings including hooded (the head a different color than the body) or masked. Gorgeous! Rats are easy to keep. Get a cage sized for a slightly larger animal, such as a chinchilla or guinea pig, and your rat will be content. Add bedding, a place for the animal to hide and sleep, a food dish and a water bottle, some toys, and youre set. Your rat will happily eat the food manufactured for him, and he will love you if you add fruit, nuts, vegetables and other people food. It is essential to get your pet from a reputable source. And as with all pets, teaching children safe handling skills especially with regard to hand-washing after playing with pets is a must. You should also prepare to teach your child lessons in lifes losses, since rats typically live about three years. Even with those caveats, the only thing rats need to become more popular as pets is a good public relations campaign, and maybe a new name. Skinny-tailed squirrels, perhaps? COURTESY PHOTOSmart, friendly and able to learn tricks easily, rats can be a good first pet for a school-aged child.

And you: What is the most important thing you have learned so far? To be my self. And whoooo are YOU? You were far away. I could see your whole face, but only your face, through the mouth hole of the costume you wore. It was a huge fluffy furry blackness of dogness, like a cartoon dog, of floppy earedness and rollicking skin. But you moved like a train, fast, fast. No, fast is not the word. Thunderous.

Even though there was no ground in the usual sense in this place of no up or down or turn around. I would not have had to remember. At last, a moment of volition meeting necessity: Perfect. For I was captivated, I could not advance into the coming moment. And I had no desire to be anywhere else. Moved and unmoving. As you came closer, I stared into your face. It was red and wet, beaming with an ecstatic happiness and movement. Blissful. I remembered the Nice n Easy Shampoo ad: The closer you get, the better you look.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! MONEY & INVESTING Research examines potential consequences of low or rising bond ratesThere is a common misperception among investors that bond investments, particularly U.S. Treasury bonds, are a safe haven. Actually, bond investing entails many significant risks. In a major bond bull market, many of those risks are mitigated or hidden. True, U.S. Treasury bonds have typically insulated bond investors from default or credit risk, inflation risk, currency risk, event risk, political risk, etc. However, as recent columns have revealed, the true extent of national, state and local government indebtedness creates numerous uncertainties in the market. There are huge, unreported liabilities, largely associated with unfunded future entitlement programs and pensions. There is an incredible shortfall between future years receipts and the yearly requirements/outlays under contractual entitlements and pension obligations, i.e. credit risk. But even if the U.S. Treasurys credit remains as is (and is not further downgraded) and even if the upcoming fiscal crisis is somehow averted, U.S. government bond investors still face the greatest risk of all: That the 30-year bull market in bonds will end and interest rates will begin rising. One adviser said that, Rates as measured by the 10-Year Treasury have hit alltime lows, from 15.84 percent in 1981 to a recent low of 1.49 percent on July 31, and have limited room for further decline. (Fixed Income Investing The Danger of Complacency, Aug. 2012, Bandon Capital Management, www.bandon.com).With news reports of a weak U.S. economy and a Federal Reserve trying its best to prime the pump by bringing rates even lower, it is very hard to imagine rising rates. But not only could it happen, it clearly will happen sometime in the future. This column is not sounding the alarm that this is about to happen but it is intended to make clear, to U.S. government and all long-term bond investors, that though interest rate risk is currently silent, it will one day emit a deafening roar. Fixed income return has two components: payment of coupon or interest and price return (gain or loss). In a rising interest rate environment, in order for outstanding bonds to adjust to market coupons or rates of interest, bond prices must adjust. Here are some general truisms when interest rates rise: first, bond prices decrease; second, longer maturity bonds will experience a greater change in price than shorter maturity; third, lower coupon bonds are harder hit than higher coupon bonds; and fourth, long term, zero coupon bonds will be hardest hit. Bandon Capitals report offers examples of the price declines associated with interest rate increases. Should we see a two percentage point increase in 10 year yields to 3.49 percent (from the Aug.31 yield of 1.49 percent), an investor would experience a cumulative loss of 9.53 percent over a three-year period. Note that the interest rate peak in 2011 was at 3.72 percent. If the 10-year Treasury yield increases from 1.49 percent to 5.49 percent in three years, investors will experience losses of 23.53 percent. Also note that the U.S. 10-year was as high as 5 percent in 2007. Some of you might be thinking, Well, that is why I hire a manager to actively manage my bond portfolio. Your adviser might offer those words as a placation. But, as Bandon further points out, the index of bond managers who actively manage bond portfolios produced losses in their portfolios during the several recent periods when rates rose. In the periods of October to December 2010; September to October 2011; and January through March 2012, Pimcos total return and Barclays aggregate both lost money in each of those periods. Active management did not work like a charm; it worked a price loss even after coupon payment. Finally, in the nine years from 2000 to 2008, there was net cash flow into bond mutual funds of $47 billion; in the three years 2009-2011, net cash inflow was a gargantuan, eye-popping $740 billion. (Bandons source was the Investment Company Institute.) When interest rates finally do rise, there will be a mad rush for the exit door and not all of the $740 billion will get out. What is an investor to do? You absolutely need a conversation with your investment adviser. Reading the Bandon report first assures a more engaging conversation. Also, consider algo/ computerized trading programs, which are void of fear and greed and that trade the U.S. 10-year based on price trends as a very realistic alternative and as a way to hedge long bond exposure and following in the footsteps of what is termed the smart money. There is a substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options on futures contracts. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 around tree roots with a solution. Besides his quiet extermination efforts there was very little else happening on Waters Edge Lane, which runs along the Gulf of Mexico. The breezy, overcast noon hour could have lulled a baby to sleep. Uniformed in a light blue Larue Pest Management Inc. button-down shirt, Mr. Tapia wore a breathing mask, thick rubber gloves, and a backpack-operated, gas-powered blower to mist a solution up into trees or shrubs. Alternately, he sprayed the trees with a pistol connected by a long rubber hose to a tank of solution in his truck. Locating an infested patch of foliage marked by the white and black substances associated with spiraling whiteflies, he aimed and sprayed. Some pest control companies in Southwest Florida say theyve been flooded with complaints about the fly, which first appeared here around the end of last year. Mr. Tapia planned to visit three other properties to fight the flies on Thursday, Sept. 13, a nowroutine part of his daily rounds. I guess its good for business, but its a challenge, said Keith Ruebeling, president of Larue Pest Management Inc. a Lehigh Acres-based company that makes house calls throughout the region. Once it hit, this thing just took off like crazy. Ive never seen anything explode like this. Insects unsightly trailDoug Caldwell is helping keep track of the flies. He holds a doctorate in landscape entomology and is the commercial landscape extension agent for the University of Florida Collier County Extension Service. The flies likely came from Central America via the Port of Miami, he explained. They first appeared in the United States in MiamiDade County in 2009 and made their way to the west coast of Florida by late 2011, nesting in the southernmost areas and along the coast first before spreading north. The Florida Keys and Marco Island were two of the heaviest-hit spots before the flies spread north, reportedly to as far as Sarasota County, although there are fewer instances of complaint there. New bugs pop up in Southwest Florida with some regularity, said Ric Trader, owner of Ants, a pest control company in Port Charlotte. Spiraling whiteflies are following a pattern hes seen from other insects. Ficus whiteflies are another type that showed up earlier and have since been controlled. Unlike spiraling whiteflies, they can kill a ficus tree. (There are more than 75 types of whitefly found in Florida.) Its been my experience that they come from the Miami-Homestead area and they slowly c ome across the state, first to Collier County then up to Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, etc., he said. Roughly 90 local plants and trees play host to spiraling whiteflies. The small white insects dont sting or pose a health risk and the rugose spiraling version of the whitefly isnt especially deadly to trees, at least not quickly or directly. The fuss is about the mess they leave behind. When they lay eggs, they discharge a cottony protective covering in spiral paths (hence spiraling). They also leave behind their waste, a sticky white substance called honeydew. Those collect on the undersides of leaves or fronds. It almost looks hairy when it gets really full on there, said John Dyches, owner of Premier Pest Management in Naples. The whitefly droppings end up falling off the bottoms of leaves and onto other leaves, patios, mailboxes, decks and pool enclosures. Dirt and dust cling to the droppings and other bugs feed on it, leaving behind their own waste. All that creates a black, crumbly, organic layer of gunk called sooty mold. To fully clean it off requires powerwashing or scrubbing. You can scrape your fingernail through the sooty mold on a leaf. On some heavily effected trees, one side of a leaf is coated black and the other dusted white. Its more of a nuisance pest, especially in a resort town where they dont like all the stuff that comes out of the insect, Dr. Caldwell said. Because spiraling whiteflies are new to the area, natural predators have yet to develop a taste for them, he explained. That may mean that this initial outbreak will be one of the worst Southwest Floridians can expect. You get the new pest and theres no bad bug to suppress it and it goes wild, Dr. Caldwell said. It takes two or three years until the predators and parasites catch up. Meanwhile, some people are paying big bucks to have their patios, boats and other surfaces power cleaned after white fly infestations, Mr. Tapia of Larue has observed. Treatment can run from $2550 per tree for homeowners. The city of Marco Island set aside $25,000 to pay for treatment to get rid of the pests. That included injecting trees directly in the trunk with a solution that spreads into the leaves and kills the flies or their hatchlings when they use their proboscis to feed on it. The city has spent about $17,000 so far. I would say (the presence of rugose spiraling whiteflies on Marco Island) was noted a good 18 months ago, and really, its everywhere, said biologist Nancy Ritche, an environmental specialist for the city. First it was just on a few species of trees like gumbo limbos, now it has really just jumped to vegetation nearby. In fact, it was first called the gumbo limbo spiraling whitefly since it often nested in that tree. Homeowners, however, have probably called it a lot worse.

Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o this newspaper, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Worldwide Invest Better DayMany folks associate us with April Fools Day, due to the pranks weve played on it. But theres another date wed like you to note, and its one were taking very seriously: Worldwide Invest Better Day, on Sept. 25. On the days leading up to and following it, well be campaigning to educate, inspire and motivate individual investors to return to the time-tested, long-term, business-focused investing principles that lead to financial security. Keeping your head in the sand wont lead you to a successful retirement. Neither will reckless speculation and trading. Fortunately, a more secure future is well within your grasp. As weve said for nearly 20 years, you are the best person to manage your finances. Stock investing is still the greatest wealth-creator available to ordinary citizens, and more tools than ever are available to help you with it. Starting now puts the power of compounding to work for you. Successful and confident investing happens when you buy parts of businesses (not tickers), and truly understand a business with a focus on the value it will generate over years, not months. Its not rocket science, either. Great companies in which you can invest are all around us and familiar to you. You dont need to find risky, obscure little outfits and trade in and out of them frantically. Buy with the aim to hold for the long term and be patient. Learn from great investors. Take advantage of tax-advantaged retirement accounts. Save aggressively. Invest effectively. Minimize fees. Have a plan. And best of all, know that you are not alone. You are part of a community at fool.com. On Sept. 25, Motley Fool co-founders David and Tom Gardner will host an allday interactive online summit, and theyll launch our (free!) Motley Fool Invest Better program offering a step-by-step approach to investing. Visit InvestBetterDay.com to sign up for access to wealth-building insights via articles, videos, podcasts and more. When it comes to your financial future, dont just hope for the best. Take responsibility for it, and take action. I trace my roots back to a breakfast nook in California in 1958. My name used to look like a rabbit describing how it moves, but my new name, as of 2008, resembles FoodStock. With about 3,500 restaurants in 18 countries, I call myself the worlds largest full-service dining company. I bought Applebees in 2007 and am working to make it 99 percent franchised. My ticker symbol is a loud noise. Over the past 20 years, my stock has averaged annual growth of more than 11 percent rather fresh and fruity results, wouldnt you say? Who am I? Shrink That LossQOn my next tax return, can I deduct from my income a big loss I incurred this year from a stock sale? S.W., Dothan, Ala.AIf you have any capital gains from stock sales, youll first offset them with your loss. Any loss beyond that, or all of your loss if you have no capital gains, can be deducted from your income up to $3,000 per year. Sums above $3,000 can be carried over to the following year.If youre in the 25 percent tax bracket and you deduct $3,000 from your income, youre excluding that amount from taxation. So you save 25 percent of $3,000, or $750. Of course, youve still lost money. You just decreased your loss. Learn much more about tax rules and strategies that can save you money. Do so at irs.gov or fool.com/ taxes. ***QHow much personal liability insurance do I need? F.E., Keene, N.H.AIt depends. Figure out how much you have to lose if youre sued. Add up the value of your home, your belongings and your financial assets. Tack on some more for the cost of legal defense. (Insurance companies will sometimes provide a lawyer.) You want to be sure that a lawsuit wont wipe you out or cause severe financial strain.If your total assets are substantial, ask your insurance company about an umbrella personal liability policy. Critical for more and more of us these days, umbrella policies generally offer much more liability coverage ($1 million or more) at much lower premiums than individual policies, such as homeowners, renters and automobile insurance. If you have a lot to lose, you might want an umbrella policy. Learn much more at fool.com/insurancecenter and iii.org.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to UsCompetition MattersOne of my earliest losers was LeapFrog Enterprises, with its electronic learning tablet. I figured that parents love their kids and will shower them with the best educational toys. Lesson learned: As with kiddie clothes, most parents are not that fussy about brands of toys. And with technology-based toys such as the LeapPad, there wasnt much sustainable competitive advantage. Fisher-Price soon came out with a rival product and LeapFrog had to discount heavily. The results were predictable: Profit margins fell and earnings shrank. Lesson No. 2: Rave reviews are not enough. F.E., SingaporeThe Fool Responds: LeapFrog was first to market with its electronic learning device, but that rarely guarantees success. Deep-pocketed competitors could and did come up with similar products. Bigger companies also tend to enjoy advantages such as economies of scale and large, established distribution channels. Its great to find a company with a new and compelling product, but you need to be confident in its ability to compete well. LeapFrog has survived and is growing, but its stock, recently around $11 per share, is well below its 2003 high near $40. Clean Up With CloroxIf youre looking for a blue-chip dividend-paying stock, consider Clorox (NYSE: CLX), recently yielding 3.5 percent. With brands such as Pine-Sol, S.O.S., Tilex, Green Works, Fresh Step, Scoop Away, Glad, Brita, Hidden Valley, Burts Bees, Kingsford and Liquid-Plumr, its readying to celebrate its 100th year, and its prospects for growth are looking as fresh as ever. The company, which has four operating segments cleaning, household, lifestyle and international fits the bill as a Peter Lynch buy what you know candidate because it has easily recognizable products and an easy-to-understand business model. It can provide downside protection for your portfolio because of the inelastic prices on many of its products. These products are necessary, too. No matter what the economy is doing, youll probably still apply lip balm, clean your kitchen, change your cats litter, unclog drains and occasionally grill some food. Its mixture of well-known brands, an easily understood business model and strong pricing power continues to drive Cloroxs innovation and growth. The companys sales volume has been growing, too, as has its dividend, which has been raised for 35 straight years. Clorox is likely to be a successful company for another 100 years. Its stock is not quite a bargain now, so perhaps keep an eye on it, waiting for a temporary pullback. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Clorox.) I trace my roots back to a dry-goods store in Wyoming in 1902, where I sold blue jeans, fabric, sewing goods and more. I was first named The Golden Rule and have long aimed to treat others Fair and Square. I boast about 1,100 stores today, though I once had more than 2,000. In 1914 I moved my headquarters to New York City, and in 1992, to Plano, Texas. I launched my catalog in 1963 and started taking online orders in 1994. I owned the Eckerd drugstore chain from 1997 to 2004. Ellen DeGeneres speaks for me. Who am I?

Mitch wears glasses, owns a cat named Bella and writes poetry in his spare time. He speaks French, is deferential and polite, and it goes without saying is not at all my type. Which is why we can have brunch on the weekends and never worry about the fraught tension that comes with attraction. You know everyone in here thinks we spent last night together, I whispered as the hostess led us to a table. Mitch rolled his eyes. Like that would ever happen. While weve sharply drawn the lines of our friendship, thats not to say Mitch isnt looking for love. Sometimes I think hes looking a little too hard. Hes out on the scene practically every weekend night, chatting up women with a boldness you wouldnt expect from his meek exterior. Im really ready, he said to me once, by way of explanation. Im just ready. The problem with this readiness, as Mitch calls it, is that it sometimes looks like desperation. As we were finishing brunch, the hostess seated two young women at the table next to us. They were lovely in their pastel dresses, and I knew immediately that Mitch was lost. He barely spoke as I forked the last bites of eggs Benedict into my mouth. Hey, I said as I caught him looking at one of the women for the tenth time in the space of two minutes. Cut it out. We paid the check and headed for the door, but I stopped at the bakery counter. Do you mind if I buy something? I asked Mitch. Sure, sure, he said, not looking at me. Then, as I was choosing a pastry, Im going to go back and ask that girl for her number. I turned from the counter, stunned. Why would you do that? Because she was cute and, I dont know Mitch, I said. You two didnt even say hello. In what world would that be appropriate? He danced nervously from one foot to the other. But what if shes The One? I shook my head and counted out money. Save your energy, I said. In fact, Id like to say that to a lot of my friends, the ones over 30 who feel time crushing in on them. Ive watched these friends grow more frenzied and turn to increasingly strange measures to track down their soul mates. Its like when youre looking for your keys, a wise friend said recently when I told him this story. You always look in the weirdest places. You get frantic to find them, and the next thing you know youre looking in the freezer. Are your keys ever going to be in the freezer? No. Theyre going to be exactly where they should be probably on the table by the door, covered with a magazine. If only Mitch and those like him would take this advice. Despite how we convince ourselves otherwise, the truth is that love is never where we least expect it. Its often right where it should have been all along. artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

Exploring the Legacy of Rachel Carson celebrates the writer who fundamentally changed the way we steward the natural environment, according to Laura Frost, chemistry professor and director of FGCUs Whitaker Center for STEM Education, which promotes academic programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Rachel Carson effectively and elegantly communicated a complex subject to the general public, Dr. Frost says. Promoting environmental sustainability and encouraging civic responsibility are parts of FGCUs mission, so it seems fitting that we should be exploring the legacy of Silent Spring on such an occasion. A marine biologist and ecologist, Ms. Carson (1907-64) wrote about natural history, resources and conservation for years before publishing Silent Spring in September 1962. A New York Times bestseller, it documented how synthetic chemical pesticides harm the environment and wildlife and ignited widespread public concern over pollution. The books revelations helped spur legislation such as the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts and led to formation of the Environmental Protection Agency. Admission to Exploring the Legacy of Rachel Carson is free and open to the public. Events are: 5-8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24, in Room 129 of Whitaker Hall Nuclear testing is explored through the films Radio Bikini (1988) and Radioactive Paradise (2010). Moderated by John Reilly, FGCU associate professor of chemistry. 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, in Room 213 of the Cohen Center A screening of The Silent Spring of Rachel Carson (1963) followed by a lecture about chemical threats presented by Darren Rumbold, FGCU professor of marine science. 5-8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, in Room 215 of Griffin Hall A screening of Fooling with Nature (1998) and lecture about hormone mimics by Talal El-Hefnawy, FGCU assistant biology professor. 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, in Room 172 of Griffin Hall Ray Judah reflects on environmental issues prevalent during his 24 years as a Lee County Commissioner, followed by the screening of Bag-it (2010), a documentary on the effect that plastics have on our bodies and our environment. 1-6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, in Room 101 of Whitaker Hall Additional lectures on chemical threats and hormone mimics and an informal Q&A session with local experts on resources, planning, landscaping, pollution, water and waste management. The day ends with a screening of The Silent Spring of Rachel Carson.For more information, call 590-1434 or visit www.fgcu.edu/whitakercenter.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 many people resonated so strongly with museum patrons that the EMP decided to offer the show to other museums. Since 2008, Out of this World has bounced around North America, from Bozeman, Mont., and Oshkosh, Wis., to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and numerous points in between. Theres just something ineffably nifty about seeing the leather jacket worn by Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones and the whip he used to battle bad guys. Mr. Fords is not the only jacket thats Out of this World. Theres the one Arnold Schwarznegger donned in The Terminator, and Dan Aykroyds from Ghostbusters. The gold tunic worn by William Shatner in the original Star Trek TV episodes from 1966 bears evidence that playing Capt. James T. Kirk was hard work. You can see sweat stains, Mr. McMurray says of the tunic. The oldest item in the collection is the Wicked Witchs hat, from a movie made nearly three-quarters of a century ago. Seeing it, one can almost hear Ms. Hamiltons menacing cackle as she flies off on her broom or peers into her crystal ball in the 1939 film. It has so much mojo about it, Mr. McMurray says about the hat. Mr. McMurray wants NMA visitors do more than gape at the 30-plus pieces of clothing and accessories that make up the exhibit. He hopes they learn about the artistry and craftsmanship required in making costumes and how the attire helps define a characters persona. The costume is the character, he says, using Darth Vader from Star Wars as an example. Making costumes that help make or define characters, visitors will learn, is also an art form. Mr. McMurry realizes, though, that the primary response from visitors is mostly likely to be more visceral or emotional, not intellectual. Its about each viewers particular connection to each movie and character, and the emotions brought forth when they watched the film. Each costume tells its own story Sort of like an archaeological piece, says the curator, who will travel to Naples to deliver a lecture about the costumes at the NMA on Wednesday, Oct. 31. The exhibit will also supply the theme for a concert by the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra on Saturday, Sept. 29. In Out of This Word: Music from the Movies the NPO will perform excerpts of the sound tracks from Star Wars, Star Trek, Mission Impossible and more. The Naples stop is the final one on the five-year tour of Out of this World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television. When the show closes Dec. 30, the items will be packed up and returned to Seattle. We kind of determined its time for it to rest, Mr. McMurray says. We figure five years is a great run.

The artists hyper-close portraits push this form of intimacy to unprecedented levels, encouraging us to see the familiar in an unfamiliar way. The exhibition features photographs of actors, singers, athletes and politicians, along with ordinary people living private lives. On display through Sunday, Dec. 9, Martin Scholler: Close Up is organized and circulated by Curatorial Assistance Traveling Exhibitions of Pasadena, Calif. Fletcher Benton: The Artists Studio This experiential and interactive exhibition explores the attitudes and methods that kinetic and constructivist sculptor Fletcher Benton applies to his work. Conceived by the artist, the exhibition recreates his studio with the images, textures and inspirations that constitute his working environment. This is a rare opportunity to see inside the artists studio a typically private space through the artists eyes. The exhibition also includes several outdoor sculptures from this artist who received the International Sculpture Center Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award in 2008. On display through Sunday, Jan. 20, Fletcher Benton: The Artists Studio is organized by the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.

On the website, he outlines the history of the festival: In September 1998, he projected 16 short films on a screen affixed to the side of a truck on Mulberry Street in New York City. Before an audience of about 300 New Yorkers, the Manhattan Short Film Festival was born. In 1999, the festival moved to Union Square Park. Aside from celebrity judges including Susan Sarandon, Eric Stoltz, Laura Linney, Roger Corman and Tim Robbins, it remained a pretty low-key event, Mr. Mason says. The 2001 festival was scheduled for Sept. 23, just 12 days after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. In the aftermath of the attacks, Union Square Park had become a shrine, a place where people gathered to grieve the loss of loved ones. Satellite trucks surrounded the park, broadcasting news from Ground Zero. Mr. Mason recalls that officials from the New York City Parks Department urged him, no matter what, to proceed with Manhattan Short as scheduled. We did, he says, and the festival received a lot of attention in the global media. A direct result from this was, the following year we received double the amount of film entries than we had in previous years. By 2004, the festival had morphed into DVDs of the finalists being screened at seven cities in seven U.S. cities over the course of one week in September. It was the first year that voting was handed over to the audience. The you be the judge concept was a huge success, Mr. Mason says. For 2005, 72 art house cinemas in 32 states screened the finalists. The next year, about two dozen cinemas in Europe joined the effort. Weve just continued to add venues in 2010 we added Africa and became the worlds first global film festival, Mr. Mason says. The main reasons for the festivals success, he says, are the cinemas/venues we partner with and the moviegoers that support them. I have become a firm believer that its the public that creates stars. Be it a film, a tune, a book, a new game, whatever... Get it out to the public, get it in the right place, the right forum, and the public will transform it and take it to a place one would never have imagined.The 2012 finalists Here are the 10 finalists for the 2012 festival, culled from 520 entries received from filmmakers in 49 countries: The Devils Ballroom (Norway) On a perilous journey to the North Pole, an Arctic explorer makes a critical decision with lifelong consequences.

Not only did he prove to be a particularly well-suited writing partner and producer, he shared a unique historical circumstance that bonded them in a special sort of kinship; like Ms. Nicks, Ms. Stewart had been part of a duo that was both musical and romantic. And also like Ms. Nicks, the romance ended before the musical connection did. Mr. Stewart, of course, was with Annie Lennox when the pair gained fame. Ms. Nicks had joined forces with Lindsey Buckingham when they were still high-school students, and when he was invited to join Fleetwood Mac, he said the Buckingham-Nicks duo, which had released one dead-in-the-water album, was a package deal. By the time they split, they had put their indelible stamp on what would become one of the best-selling albums of all time: 1977s Rumours, a chronicle of two band couples coming apart (John and Christine McVie were the other) and Ms. Nicks affair with the bands co-founder, drummer Mick Fleetwood. The members of Fleetwood Mac have since splintered and come together again more than once, but in the meantime, each made solo forays. Ms. Nicks has notched the most successful solo career of any Fleetwood Mac veteran. Her string of hits, with and without Fleetwood Mac, represents one of pop musics most beloved canons: the list includes Rhiannon, Landslide, Dreams (a favorite topic), Edge of Seventeen, Leather and Lace (a duet with one-time lover Don Henley), Stand Back and, with Tom Petty, Stop Draggin My Heart Around. Her gypsy/witchy-woman look Victorian-inspired gowns, high-heeled boots, leather and lace, silk and satin, romantic hats over long, blonde tresses, all shown off with frequent stage twirls set a tone in the 0s from which she hasnt wavered. She hasnt changed her songwriting style much, either or at least she hadnt until she began working with Mr. Stewart on In Your Dreams, which was released in May 2011. She says that until he sat across from her in her L.A. living room, expecting her to sing along as he played, shed never written a song with another person while sharing the same breathing space, face to face. I sent him 40 pages of poetry, never really expecting him to read all of it, but he did, she recalls, speaking over the phone in her deep alto. He puts his guitar on and he takes one of the poems out of the binder that I had sent him, and he says, I like this poem. Lets do this one. Startled (like a deer in headlights, she says with a laugh), she wanted to tell him she doesnt write with other people. But she kept her mouth shut likely a rare moment for a woman who hardly breaks for another question once she gets going during an interview. Something in me said, Dont say that. Just sit there and see what he is gonna do, she confesses. And he played. Then he told her to sing. And she did. Thats actually the third to the last song on the record; its called You May Be The One, she says. Thats how it started, and 20 minutes later, we had a really good song. The only song on which they actually shared lyric-writing duties was Everybody Loves You; he gave her the chorus and asked her to write verses. The words he provided were: Everybody loves you but youre so alone, no one really knows you, but Im the only one. I immediately took it like he was writing that about Annie Lennox, because that sounded like a person from a duo writing a song about the other person in the duo, Ms. Nicks says. And what Dave and I had that was great was that wed both been in really famous duos, so the whole time we were making this record, I felt like Lindsey and Annie were floating around in the room because a lot of the stuff that we both wrote seemed to be directed to our years as famous people in duos. Shes hoping her solo tour will draw audiences to her poignant mix of love songs, reminiscences, dreamscapes and odes to soldiers, vampires, New Orleans and even Edgar Allen Poe (whose poem Annabel Lee she has set to music). In Your Dreams also contains contributions by frequent collaborator Mike Campbell, along with Mr. Buckingham, Waddy Wachtel, Mr. Fleetwood and other players shes worked with in the past. Except for drum overdubs, they recorded the entire album in her home, starting in January 2010 and finishing in December that year. It was the best year of my life, Ms. Nicks enthuses. I am probably more proud of this record than anything Ive ever done.

Tax & gratuity added to total prior to discount. Expires 9/29/12. Is it worth $10? YesSlow-developing and oddly restrained, yet sprinkled with moments of brilliant acting and intense drama, The Master is a good movie with interesting ideas. But its not the Oscar contender many are expecting from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood). Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is the leader of The Cause, a cult-like group that promises to free ones soul from the burdens of its past lives so it can attain perfection in the present. Given that its 1950 and WWII veteran Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) is an alcoholic lost soul in need of salvation, he happily joins The Cause. In order to take part in something Dodd asserts can cure leukemia, there are rules: No negativity allowed. Act superior to animals. Do not be ruled by emotion. Most importantly, one must fully invest in processing, in which Dodd puts someone in a hypnotic trance and prompts the person to contact his/her former selves, which in turn should shed light on present dilemmas. Question Dodds teaching and you are met with a temperamental how dare you? reaction, a typical holier-than-thou approach taken by leaders who actually believe the trash that comes out of their mouths. But Anderson isnt interested in judging Dodds mendacity or Quells loyal servitude, which later turns to abrasive doubt. Instead, Anderson observes them as men in a struggle, eager to either be followed or to find solace and meaning in something, anything. By the end, each man has closure, but its not the type of tidy conclusion audiences are used to. There are moments in The Master that rival Andersons best work (There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights). Oddly, though, many other moments leave you desiring far more, and with the sense that Anderson is holding back his considerable filmmaking skill when its needed to enhance the story. For example, he ordinarily uses lighting and elaborate camera movements to immerse us in the world of his characters, but here he lacks technique. Instead, he seems content to observe his characters and force us to focus on the central message, which is that we are all people and what we believe, at least to an extent, defines us. One thing we are used to from Anderson and do receive here is top-notch performances, particularly from Hoffman, from Amy Adams as Dodds wife, and from Phoenix. Hoffman is charismatic and likeable without going over the top as the master (note how he gets very defensive when Dodds beliefs are questioned a man who knows hes a fraud will naturally cross his arms and lose his temper without notice, and Hoffman captures this subtle change perfectly). Lest she be just the innocent bystander, Adams delivers strong material as Dodds wife, highlighted by one scene in a bathroom in which she takes control of an emotional situation. As for Phoenix, his slumping posture, uneven facial expressions and quiet desperation have you rooting for Quell to find something that will make him happy, even if happiness isnt possible for him. If anything about the film is Oscar worthy, its Phoenixs performance. Anderson denied rumors that The Master is based on the origins of Scientology in the 1950s, but the parallels are obvious. Doesnt matter, though, because nothing is condemned and nothing is championed by films end. Youll leave marveling at the performances and shoulder-shrugging the rest, making this an endorsement out of respect rather than heartfelt enthusiasm.

Expires 9/30/12 FLORIDA WRITERSDebut murder mystery is a hurricane of wise-cracking pleasureFly on the Wall by Mike Hirsh. Antenna Books. 298 pages. $14.99. Kindle eBook, $5.99. In the aftermath of Hurricane Charley, human nature rears its ugly head. The vulnerable citizens of Punta Gorda work their way through the chaos and destruction of the storm, only to be preyed upon by their fellow man. There is a murder to solve, insurance fraud to uncover and a sense of community to restore.As they look back on it, wise-cracking Paul Fly Moscone, retired North Jersey computer salesman and now volunteer deputy in the county sheriffs office, and his friend Bill Jinx Shiffman, a former journalist from L.A., banter and bicker through a beautiful day on Flys yacht with new friends who form a captive audience. The telling of the tale is colored by wit and humor as Mike Hirsh, through his keen sense of place, suspenseful dual narration and riotous characterizations, gets it done.Though Fly and Jinx are good friends and almost inseparable, their relationship depends on trading insults nonstop. Much of the verbal humor in this novel depends on this ball-busting competition. As they take turns driving Flys boat and telling their story of the hurricane, they delight in challenging one anothers manhood. Readers will discover the deep respect that lies under the spirited digs and jibes. Fly is the central figure. He is the one who comes across two potential crimes in the aftermath of Charley. Responding to a complaint that blood is leaking through a condo-dwellers ceiling, he climbs up to the penthouse above and finds that the owner had bled out after being wounded by a shard of glass. Was this fatal injury from the storm? Fly sees signs of foul play and thinks murder is a possibility.A bit later on, he discovers something else thats fishy in that luxury condo: A very valuable Picasso drawing that should be there is missing. He knows where it is and rather easily discovers the culprit, but the o utcome of his investigation is still quite surprising and reveals unexpected aspects of Flys character. Meanwhile, insurance fraud is rampant. Representing the sheriffs office, Fly accompanies a shrewd investigator on a few cases. He learns a lot from this man, Vin, and the reader learns a lot about the way the insurance industry handles suspect disaster claims. Fly is enraged at how people who are otherwise law-abiding citizens can have no qualms about attempting to rip off an insurance company. Its amazing how they will lie and lie, even as all the evidence exposes their deceit. And of course, many people are disappointed with the slow processing of claims and the unexpectedly low payoffs. Claim investigators might as well have targets painted on their backs. In fact, another of Flys cases involves the murder of an insurance claims adjuster. Fly and Vin go out together in the hopes of catching the killer just before he commits a repeat murder. Fly on the Wall is as much a portrait of a community in crisis as it is a comic study in personalities. Beginning with descriptions of people reacting to the threat of the storm, continuing with vivid imagery of its approach and destructive action, and moving on to the victims attempts to put their lives back together again, Mr. Hirsh allows us to share the whole range of emotions that natural disasters can trigger. And yet he somehow keeps it light. Mr. Hirshs genius involves reminding us that humor is a survival skill. When Fly and Jinx urgently insist that they must live by Man Rules (always siding with other husbands and never with their wives), we understand that this version of the battle of the sexes involves, paradoxically, men who care very much for their wives happiness and peace of mind.Men and women will smile with familiarity at the way the author paints the relationship between Fly, who needs at this time in his life to do some good in the world, and Sophia, who cant bear the thought of him putting himself at risk. The author is unerring in deciding what each will say, and what each wont say. Be in the know. Pick up (or download) your copy and tell your friends how much you like it. Then there might be a second Fly Moscone Mystery.

BEACH READING Audrey Hepburn: A Charmed Life By Robyn Karney (Arcade Publishing, $24.95)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXAudrey Hepburn was born Eda van Heemstra in Brussels, Belgium, in 1929. Despite a rather complicated childhood in Nazioccupied Holland, she trained as a ballet dancer in Amsterdam and later at the Marie Rambert school in London, where she made both her film and stage debuts in 1948. But it wasnt until three years later in the Broadway production of Gigi that she truly hit her stride. After winning acclaim on Broadway, she won an Oscar for her film performance in Roman Holiday. She quickly became an international celebrity, and throughout the 1950s and s was boxoffice gold. Three of her most popular film roles were in Sabrina, The Nuns Story and Breakfast at Tiffanys all Oscar nominations. Although Hepburn died of cancer at her home in Switzerland in 1993, during her lifetime she left an indelible mark on our modern culture. In a new biography, Robyn Karney, editor of Whos Who in Hollywood, captures all of the delicate, intangible facets of this remarkable woman. The 177 photographs chosen by Ms. Karney are stunning. Photographer Richard Avedon summed up the elegance of Hepburn when he said, I am, and forever will be, devastated by the gift of Audrey Hepburn before my camera. I cannot lift her to greater heights. She is already there. I can only record; I cannot interpret her. There is no going further than who she is. She has achieved the ultimate portrait. Indeed. Hepburn was more than an actress and international beauty. She worked tirelessly as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and was directly involved in numerous charities, especially those that aided children. It was this devotion to helping the poorest children of the Third World that set her apart from many others in the entertainment industry. Audrey Hepburn: A Charmed Life shows why her style, poise, talent and inner warmth continue to fascinate, even two decades after her death.

BEACH READING Hello Goodbye Hello: A Circle of 101 Remarkable Meetings By Craig Brown (Simon & Schuster, $26.95)REVIEWED BY LARRY COXCraig Brown has written one of the most entertaining and intriguing books to pop up in recent months. The witty British writer and a frequent contributor to such publications as the Daily Telegraph, Vanity Fair and The Times, has documented 101 meetings in exactly 1,001 words each. One meeting seamlessly blends into the next. For example, Marilyn Monroe meets with Frank Lloyd Wright at the Plaza Hotel during the autumn of 1957 hoping he will design her dream house. That encounter is followed two years later when the screen star dazzles Nikita Khrushchev in her tightest, sexiest dress at the Cafe de Paris in Hollywood. Khrushchev lambasts George Brown in London in 1956. You get the idea. These strange-but-true meetings involve many heavy hitters of the past century from almost every aspect of modern culture. The book begins with Adolf Hitler. During the summer of 1931, Hitler is struck by an automobile driven by John Scott-Ellis in Munich. The book comes full circle 329 pages later when the Duchess of Windsor sips tea with Hitler in 1937 at Berchtesgaden. In between are some astonishing moments of celebrity frisson. Consider what Peggy Lee did to President Richard Nixon in the East Room of the White House, the reaction of George Bernard Shaw seeing Harpo Marx in the nude, President Theodore Roosevelt trying to get a word in edgeways with H.G. Wells, and try if you will to imagine HRH Princess Margaret watching a porn film with Kenneth Tynan. Mr. Browns book was published to rave reviews in the United Kingdom last year. Sebastian Shakespeare observed in Literary Review that reading it was much like attending a vast, glorious cocktail party and added If history is gossip well told, then this book is a triumph of the genre. I couldnt agree more. My copy is still on my bedside table. n k a n i ll e. e d h i s hin rit y C L ee Ri c Ea s H o Ge se t h T t r i n W y H r MBb

A Dr. Byrnes Medical Examination Chair was offered by Skinner Auctioneers of Boston. The odd chair was clearly labeled with its name and the maker, S. Betz & Co. of Chicago. The red-painted steel chair also was marked on the footrests with the makers name and the words Model 1901 Prof. A.H. Ferguson. The chair has levers to adjust the back, footrest and height, and it can be flattened to use as a table with stirrups. It is about 56 inches high. Nineteenth-century medical chairs are not often sold. This one brought $475. Would you buy a 1930 permanent-wave machine with a chair hood and dangling cords? Would you put a 1940s washing machine in your living room near a wall of polished steel school lockers?

Age and value?A: Many lusterware childrens tea sets were made in Japan during the 1930s. Your set was probably made then, or perhaps as early as the late 1920s. Your set is a small one, without plates. It would sell for about $35 to $50. Q: I have an original Woodstock poster in mint condition. What is it worth? A: The famous Woodstock Music and Art Fair was held near White Lake, N.Y., in 1969. The festival is considered one of the most important moments in American music history.

The true original poster was designed by David Edward Byrd and shows a nude woman surrounded by cupids and flowers. When the location of the festival was changed, Byrd was on vacation and unreachable, so Skolnick was commissioned to create the new poster. Woodstock memorabilia are popular collectibles. An original Byrd poster in excellent condition recently auctioned for $468. The Skolnick version in near-mint condition sold for $1,156. But beware. Many reproductions exist. Q: We bought an elaborately decorated silk robe while on a trip to Japan years ago. What is the best way to display this? Is it better to hang it up or to frame it? A: If the robe is in good condition and not too heavy, it can be hung on a hanger. The Textile Museum recommends wrapping a wooden hanger in polyester quilt batting to support the shoulders. Cover the padding with washed muslin. If you are hanging it in a closet, you should cover it with washed muslin to protect it from dust. Archival storage items can be purchased at closet shops. Dont display the robe where it will be exposed to sunlight or fluorescent light. Even incandescent lighting can cause fading over time. Extreme heat or cold also can damage textiles. If the robe is framed, special UV-filtering glass and acid-free materials should be used. Q: I own a canceled check from Mae Wests personal account at California Bank in Hollywood. The check, in the amount of $25, is signed by West and dated Dec. 24, 1945. How much would it sell for? A: Mae West, originally named Mary Jane West, was an American actress, screenwriter and playwright. She was born in 1893 in Brooklyn, N.Y. West started her career as a playwright and actress on Broadway. Her plays proved controversial and received mixed critical reception, but they were wellattended. In 1932 she was offered a contract with Paramount Pictures and made her debut in the film Night After Night with George Raft. West went on to star in many films, including Im No Angel with Cary Grant. She stayed in show business for decades and has been named by the American Film Institute as the 15th-greatest female star in American cinema history. One of her signed checks drawn on the same bank recently auctioned for $96. Tip: Store your card albums flat, not upright.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC20 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 CONTRACT BRIDGEBY STEVE BECKERBig swing on a small dealConsider this deal from a teamof-four match. Only a partscore was involved, but even so, the hand is highly instructive. At the first table, West led the diamond king, East signaling with the nine to indicate a doubleton. West continued with the ace and another diamond, which East ruffed. East could now have saved a trick by cashing the ace of hearts, but instead he returned a trump. Declarer then collected the rest of the tricks. He cashed the A-K of trumps and K-J of clubs, then crossed to dummy with a trump and discarded both his hearts on the A-Q of clubs to finish with 10 tricks and a score of 170 points. At the second table, the defense functioned far more efficiently. Here East played the deuce of diamonds on the king to discourage West from continuing the suit, so West shifted to the jack of hearts at trick two. East cashed the A-Q of hearts and reverted to diamonds by returning the nine. West won with the jack, cashed the ace and continued with the seven. When dummy ruffed with the nine, East overruffed with the queen. Then as if declarer had not already suffered enough East heartlessly returned a heart, promoting Wests jack of spades into another trump trick. So the declarer at this table went down two 200 points which was four tricks and 370 points worse than his counterpart had done at the first table. It was not that South had done anything wrong he didnt. It was simply that his opponents did everything right.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Coconut Jacks Waterfront Grille, 5370 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 676-7777A lovely water view paired with good food is a rarity around here, but one that Coconut Jacks manages to deliver. The vastly remodeled Vincenzos on the Bay has a Caribbean atmosphere and menu to match. Chef Jon Venuto gives calamari a fresh taste by pairing it with a light and refreshing lemon-garlic-banana pepper sauce. Hot voodoo wings were perfectly cooked and crisp with a tongue-tingling sauce. Either dish would be enough to share. Both the (grilled) scallop basket with fries, cole slaw and citrus remoulade, and the mambo mahi tacos with cilantro salsa and Key lime aioli were terrific. The meal ended with a fittingly tropical dessert of coconut sorbet with strawberry-mango salsa, served in a coconut shell. Service was friendly and attentive throughout the meal. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2011Flemings Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, 8985 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 598-2424Theres plenty of beef to be had at Flemings, but this is a steakhouse that devotes the same attention to seafood, wine and service as it does to meat. From the 100-plus by-the-glass wine selections (which included flights of 2-ounce pours of three types) to the wicked Cajun barbecue shrimp, roasted mushroom ravioli to the aged New York strip, barbecued Scottish salmon and chocolate lava cake, every course was well-timed, each item was the proper temperature, well seasoned and served with a smile. Side dishes were a la carte, as is the custom at most steakhouses, but these were interesting mashed potatoes with blue cheese, mac and cheese with chipotle cheddar and leeks and well executed. When the craving for a really good steak strikes, Flemings can deliver it and a whole lot more. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2011Komoon Thai Sushi and Ceviche, 1575 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 596-9991If I lived closer to Komoon, I might never cook again. The unlikely menu offers a wealth of options, all done well. The sushi is artfully created from a list of possibilities from straight-up sashimi and sushi to a flashy green dragon roll, starring shrimp and avocado. A mixed seafood ceviche filled with white fish, shrimp, calamari, clams and red onion had a palate-pleasing balance of hot spice and cool seafood. From the cooked Japanese menu, the beef yaki soba was dead on and the Kiss Me with tofu revealed its Thai roots with its gingery garlic sauce. Servers were efficient and hospitable, the room is cozy and stylish. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2012Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, 8971 U.S. 41, Naples; 431-6206Margaritas is an offshoot of a Mexican restaurant by the same name thats been on Marco Island since 2005. Succulent hand-pulled meats and fresh seafood are tucked into tender tortillas, served with brightly flavored housemade salsas and sauces. Bracing margaritas in fruit flavors such as watermelon and pomegranate are served on the rocks or frozen, headlining a tequila-heavy cocktail list that goes on for days. The rustic charro beans, whole pintos laced with oregano and chunks of pork, are a revelation and theyre just a side dish. The taco trio miniature corn tortillas overflowing with shredded beef, chicken and pork is a good way to start, as is the ridiculously sumptuous queso fundido, a fondue of warm, silky white cheese garnished with diced scallions, jalapenos and chorizo that just might send your eyes rolling back in your head. Available with three stuffings, the tamales are exemplary. A seafoodpacked Cancun burrito was big enough for two, and its ingredients all perfectly cooked. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2011 Sam-Bucco Bistro, 14700 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 592-6050Most restaurants keep customers coming back because the food is exceptional or the service is noteworthy or the ambience is beautiful. Ive rarely encountered one in which all three approach perfection the way they do at SamBucco Bistro, a mecca of Mediterranean splendor. The room glows a warm gold, creating an elegant ambience in which knowledgeable servers present course after course of superb food. Every dish, whether a timeless classic or something the eponymous chef has dreamed up, is composed of fresh ingredients presented artfully. I could make a meal on the Turkish grilled calamari served with arugula, balsamic vinaigrette and fresh lemon juice. A sampler platter creamy babaganouj, avocado salad, marinated mushrooms, cheeses and focaccia was also first rate. A nightly special featured a fettuccine pancake with Parmesan and cream topped with a coldwater lobster tail, shrimp, peas and pink sauce. Also noteworthy was an entre of shrimp and scallops chorizo with braised pears, mandarin oranges and tart pomegranate sauce. The wine list is extensive and impressive, too. Full bar.

BARHAPPY HOUR Daily 5-7pm We Prepare Food With Passion For Lasting Impressions NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 Competition for seafood lovers dollars is stiff in Southwest Florida. Besides locally grown independents Lazy Flamingoes and Pinchers Crab Shacks, we have a number of chains of high quality that transcend generic corporate identity Roys, Bonefish Grill and Trulucks, for instance. Blue Pointe Oyster Bar and Seafood Grill, a Mainstreet Ventures brand, dipped its hook in the same competitive waters when it opened in November 2003 at the Bell Tower Shops in south Fort Myers. Specializing in seafood from New England, the Pacific Coast, the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico, the restaurant casts a wide net yet somehow fails to come up with a memorable catch. Its hard to diagnose whether our lackluster meal was the side effect of the September slump in Southwest Florida or a chronic malaise that has set in after nearly 10 years in business. But Blue Pointe will need to shake off the ennui if it is to rise above merely middling and compete in these waters. We had no trouble getting a table on a Thursday night. For some reason, the Blue Pointe in memory always seems more spacious than it is in reality. Perhaps its because the patio adds so much seating to the long, narrow inside dining room. Indoors, the booths and high-top tables seem uncomfortably close. Our booth itself felt quite cramped, even after we nudged the table back and forth a bit. The dark interior could benefit from a little refurbishing. The modern art is good, but the clubby trappings of trophy fish and such seem a bit dated. Bread in the form of irregularly shaped herb rolls arrived swiftly, along with the water we requested. After bringing drinks a perfectly blended Grey Goose martini ($9.99) and a wellchilled Italian pinot grigio ($8.95 for 8 ounces) our waiter asked if we wanted to enjoy our beverages a bit before ordering. We did. But then we waited and waited for him to return for our appetizer order. Be careful what you ask for. Being in an oyster bar, it seemed appropriate to begin with some raw shellfish. Surprisingly, there were only two oyster varieties on the menu, which changes weekly. The oyster sampler ($12.95) offered each of any of the above, implying there are usually more choices. Regardless, the Malpeques from Prince Edward Island and the Cockenoes from Connecticut were fresh and briny. We particularly liked that Blue Pointe serves mignonette sauce along with cocktail sauce, as not many restaurants offer the vinegary shallot concoction anymore. Less impressive were the fried stuffed artichokes a mere three morsels for $10.95. The panko-breaded hearts were filled with a scant amount of blue cheese and lobster meat that just didnt have much impact on the palate. Going with one or the other filling instead of both might have given this item more punch. We did like the garlic-cream dip, but overall this dish was disappointing. Not much effort was made on the plating other than a scattering of minced scallion and parsley, and such lack of effort continued with the sadlooking entrees. But first came salads. My companions blue cheese-laced cole slaw was refreshingly crisp and pungent, with a hint of heat. A house salad, though, was overdressed and oily. On the positive side, portions were generous at a time when a lot of restaurants are cutting back on such amenities. In contrast, the main course was spartan. The Block Island swordfish ($22.95) was perfectly grilled and moist within, but it looked as if someone forgot to finish the plate. A drizzle of sauce or a spoonful of a bright salsa would have elevated the flavor as well as the presentation. As it was, a scoop of bland mashed potatoes and a lemon wedge were all that shared the white plate. Two asparagus stalks and the same humdrum garlic-mashed potatoes accompanied the stuffed lemon sole ($26.95). The fish itself was very good beautifully bronzed and wrapped around a mound of delicious lump blue crab stuffing. The delicate sole really stole the show in what was the highlight of the meal, but the supporting players could have been stronger. There were no complaints whatsoever about dessert, for which we decided to share a slice of coconut cheesecake (a very reasonable $4.95). The rich filling was enhanced by toasted coconut, a stream of mango coulis and a few berries two strawberries and one blackberry, to be exact. (Other dessert options include crme brulee, Key lime pie and berry crisp.) Clearly, there are some mixed messages in Blue Pointes approach. I would be willing to forego ancillary items such as bread and salad if more consideration were given to sending out a dazzling entre plate or appetizers that didnt seem chintzy. Then again, many diners skip starters and prefer to have a salad course. One can only hope that Blue Pointe is merely holding back now to get through the economically challenging period before snowbirds return and season begins. If not, it could find itself outclassed by its seafood rivals.
