She had a double mastectomy. Sitting down with Florida Weekly, these two women look back over their chosen course of treatment for breast cancer and share what they wish they had done differently. They each lost their hair, their eyebrows and their eyelashes, yet they somehow find laughter. They joke that their chemotherapy turned their husbands into beauticians, with Ms. MacDonalds cutting her hair and Mrs. Olsons helping her shave her head. Pondering prophylactic or preventative mastectomies, they understand how fear and family history might lead to such extremes. On the debate over screening, Mrs. Olson and Ms. MacDonald agree: If mammography makes women diligent, why take it away? As far as the fear of recurrence, these breast cancer survivors know that they could handle it though they were not sure of that at one time. Heres what else they had to say.Q: Knowing what you know now, what would you have done different? For instance, would you have given more thought to your mastectomies?

Susan Kristoff has a demanding full-time job, fighting the mutant cells shes lived with for 11 years. Cancer keeps her on the road, traveling from her condo in West Palm Beach to her sisters place in Orlando as she seeks the most effective treatments. That has included Tykerb, a pill taken at home as a more targeted and less painful alternative to chemotherapy at a clinic. But her insurance plan required a co-pay of $3,000 per month because the medicine comes in the form of pills while a co-pay for traditional chemotherapy at a clinic was around $50. Cancer patients in Florida have faced this disparity between the cost of pills and clinical visits for years. Now, thanks to the advocacy efforts of people such as Ms. Kristoff and groups such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, thats changing. The 2013 Cancer Treatment Fairness Act requires that Florida insurers provide coverage for oral cancer drugs that is on par with traditional treatments such as those delivered intravenously. Its set to take effect July 1, 2014. For patients, it should help clear a path to the medicine their doctors prescribe, instead of being saddled with huge co-Chemo coverage gets more fair for Florida patients VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYBY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com www.FloridaWeekly.com www.FloridaWeekly.com BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 Naming (not names) breastsIts very difficult for me to write about breasts. But I have been asked to, and if I hadnt been asked to, I would have volunteered anyway, like Neil Armstrong, who volunteered to fly into space and who became the first man to set foot on the moon. Breasts are like moons, of course, conical moons, where every man and woman is the first to set foot. Or at least every man and woman first sets toothless gums. What it comes down to, whether in a lunar landing module or a set of toothless gums, is this: All of us begin life at the breast. Therefore, no one can deny that breasts number among the most powerful forces in our evolving lives. So what do we do about it? We do what we would do if our mothers handed us a 50 percent share in Apple, or a diamond mine, or Ted Turners ranch in Montana, or a 12,000-square-foot home on the water surrounded by five or 10 acres of private beachfront: We honor breasts by taking care of them. Any breasts. All breasts. A breast is a precious thing. Two breasts are twice as precious. Breasts, and not anything else, are really the source of life. While all of that seems obvious, it isnt not to the many who try to ignore breasts. After weve first landed on them as infants, and perhaps allowing for one or two other occasional uses, figures this army of the oblivious, breasts just get in the way. Im not the first one to point this out. Men in particular are guilty of this massive miscalculation they have breasts, too. And more importantly, so do the women in their lives. A lot of problems arise from the neglect of breasts by both men and women, and the largest one is poor health. Im pulling punches, though. The largest problem that springs from neglect is mortality. Between now and about the first of October next year in that 12-month period roughly 200 people are likely to die from breast cancer on the southwest coast alone, and as many more in Palm Beach County. Those numbers are demonstrable, but theyre not inevitable. Theyre so high, according to such unassailable organizations as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, because many women and men do not encourage each other first, to seek annual mammograms over the age of 40, and second, to learn from their doctors how to conduct their own breast exams by touch. When it comes to breast cancer, discovery is everything. Find a problem early, and you or the women you love (and even the men, occasionally) can reasonably plan on living a long life. Let it go long, and the real trouble starts. Another problem that arises from such neglect, therefore, is aesthetic: Here at Florida Weekly, we have to keep printing editions on pink paper once each year during Breast Cancer Awareness month. This may be one of the most painful expressions of sympathy, empathy and reminder (memo to self: get a mammogram, learn to check) ever invented by God or journalist. No doubt it violates every law of good taste ever laid down in the Great Book of Aesthetic Virtue, but we ignore that. Health is more important, especially healthy breasts. There are some other things that can be carried out in the fight to make breasts more prominently a part of the public consciousness. For example, you can spend a lot more time at nude beaches, either looking at breasts or displaying them, as is your wont. Afterward, of course, you can form discussion groups and write press releases for submission to local newspapers, radio and television stations describing this process. Even more importantly, nowadays, is the use of social media. We encourage regular and even prolific exchanges about breasts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, for example. Also, it might be helpful for women, in particular, to name their breasts, the way they might name their dogs or their children, and to insist that others give their titled breasts the respect they deserve.New York Times best-selling author Darynda Jones agrees with us, apparently. She offers this helpful exchange in her book, First Grave on the Right: My fore-parts, as you so ineloquently put it, have names. I pointed to my right breast. This is Danger. Then my left. And this is Will Robinson. I would appreciate it if you addressed them accordingly. After a long pause in which he took the time to blink several times, he asked, You named your breasts? I turned my back to him with a shrug. I named my ovaries, too, but they dont get out as much. At Florida Weekly, names like Danger and Will Robinson strike us as slightly limited. We prefer fuller, more robust, more buxomly feminine names (at least for the breasts of females), such as Alexandrie, or Gabrielle, or Valentina, or Mme. Marie Antonia Josepha Johanna Antoinette. But just Queenie and Beanie will do in a pinch. Not Danger, though never. Breasts dont wear sunglasses, after all, and we dont want to imply that there is anything dangerous about them in the first place. Do we? Well no, not breasts that have been checked, carefully, both for decent names and for lumps. Of course, its only fair to warn our readers that some danger indeed does exist in deciding not to ignore breasts in ways we have previously ignored them. Let me conclude, then, with this passage, in which a paterfamilias attempts to recite a favorite family story and gets a couple of key words wrong, from the writer Patrick Rothfuss. Take it for what its worth. The wild women in his lap, my father enthused, laying their breasts on his head. There was a moment of stunned silence. Then my mother spoke slowly, with an edge to her voice. I think you mean wild beasts laying their heads in his lap.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 NEWS A5 BREAST CANCER AW ARENESS M NTH Be part of a once-in-a-generation effort in the fight against cancer BY SYBIL EDGARThe American Cancer Society In my 18 years as a breast cancer survivor, I have seen first-hand the impact that dedicated volunteers and fundraising can make. In 1996, a year after my diagnosis, I too joined the ranks of the motivated members of our community who give their time to finding a cure for cancer. As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society, I have raised money for research, educated volunteers on the impact they can make to find a cure and supported other survivors in their journey. One of the biggest areas of impact that I have seen made, however, is with the communitys involvement in ACSs Cancer Prevention Studies. Since the 1950s, ACS has been conducting follow-up studies that involve collecting exposure information about medical history, lifestyle and behavior from a large group of people at the beginning of the study and then following them over time to update that information as well as document health changes such as a cancer diagnosis or heart disease. If study participants get cancer, which statistically we know will happen within the study population, researchers will evaluate the participants data and determine how that cancer might be related to the information collected, trying to identify relationships between various exposures and cancer risk. With nearly 2.4 million participants, ACS Cancer Prevention Studies have led to major breakthroughs in breast cancer research, including mammography and important cancer-fighting drugs including Herceptin and Tamoxifen. Also, it was these important community-involved studies conducted by ACS that first discovered the links between smoking and cancer, and obesity and cancer. It was the Hammond Horn study that began in 1952 that first identified the link of smoking and lung cancer and the next study, CPS-1, that identified early deaths from smoking. Those research findings are what led to the Surgeon Generals warning label that prompted individuals to quit smoking. The third study, CPS-2, went further and identified the risk of death due to secondhand smoke in 1996. In the mid 1990s, states started implementing smoke-free legislation. According to the last ACS Cancer Action Network How Do You Measure Up? report, approximately 80 percent of the U.S. population is now protected from secondhand smoke via smoke-free legislation. More than 100 scientific papers have been published from the Cancer Prevention Studies on breast cancer specifically. Through those studies, we have learned that various lifestyle and genetic factors such as those listed here are associated with a higher risk of developing breast cancer. These findings are not just scientific; they go on to inform our public health messages and education programs and ultimately improve cancer control and prevention efforts. Until recently, incident rates of breast cancer increased over time for reasons such as population changes and improved detection through mammography screening. Similarly, there was a slow increase in breast cancer death rates from 19751990. But since 1991, we have observed a 2.2 percent decrease per year in deaths from breast cancer. This decline in death rates has been due to both improved screening practices as well as better prevention and early detection. Next week, members of the Southwest Florida community have an opportunity to be part of history by participating in the American Cancer Societys CPS-3, the fourth study of its kind. ACS is looking for study participants between the ages of 30-65 years old who have never been diagnosed with cancer. Participation requires a long-term commitment but a limited investment of time consisting of periodic at-home follow-up surveys over the life of the study. As a survivor, volunteer and advocate for cancer prevention and research, I strongly encourage everyone to participate in CPS-3 and help us continue the life-saving research and ultimately find a cure for cancer. Individuals can enroll in CPS-3 by registering online at www.cancer.org/ cps3florida and by attending one of the two following enrollment sessions: Wednesday, Oct. 2: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at NCH Downtown Thursday, Oct. 3: 4-8 p.m. at NCH North Naples Sybil Edgar is an 18-year cancer survivor. After moving to Florida from New York in 1997, she became an American Cancer Society volunteer and has served on the Lee County ACS board of directors since 1997. Ms. Edgar holds a masters degree in social work, is a state trainer for Reach to Recovery, sits on the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer committee and is a winner of the St. George Award, a national award from ACS for outstanding volunteers.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 BREAST CANCER AW ARENESS M NTH At least I had one breast. But Bonnie is absolutely right. It is more uncomfortable to be lopsided than it is to lose two breasts I waited 11 years before I had breast reconstruction. I was so uncomfortable having one breast I always had to have something in there. In the beginning they give you this silicone (prosthesis) and its heavy and its like jelly and its hot At home, I would put in this little foam thing I got so used to using the foam thing, my spine was starting to shift. My doctor told me, either you leave the prosthesis in all the time or youve got to have reconstruction I had a very involved TRAM flap surgery, where they take the tissue from your stomach and move it up, so theres no implant, its belly fat. When I get mammograms nowadays they dont examine it because its belly fat, and you cant get breast cancer in belly fat That would have been the one thing I would have done differently I would have taken both breasts off. Mrs. Olson: Knowing what I know now, I would not have gone through with the double mastectomy. I would have had the lumpectomy and further excision (removal of more tissue and lymph nodes) I didnt think I needed reconstruction. First I wanted to concentrate on getting through the chemo and living. I thought, Breasts dont define me. I dont need breasts anymore. You go and try to find a dress or a blouse or anything with a flat chest I waited a year before I had my reconstruction. I waited until I was completely done with my chemotherapy I had a wonderful plastic surgeon, but they dont look like breasts (My implants) are always hard, theyre not soft I have a hard time finding a bra Again, knowing what I know now I think there are so many options available Im more knowledgeable of all the risks, the options and everything. Im sure I was told all that back when I was going through it, but survival is what was on my mind versus death Dr. Susan Loves book was my Bible. I read it from cover to cover. Her website is what helped me decide to do the double mastectomy, because it didnt look that bad. She had women who actually posed and showed their breasts. What a gift that was. Ms. MacDonald: I didnt have the option to do a lumpectomy, but I dont think I would have done it because I think first thing, when youre given that news its about survival. Whatever I need to do I will do You hear a lot of women say, I want it out. Just get it out. I dont want to think about it. And sometimes that emotion overtakes the knowledge that you do have. Even if you have all of the knowledge, sometimes it doesnt make a difference. You can know all these things, you can read all of that, but at the end of the day, when you have to make that decision, its about survival.Q: What do you think about prophylactic or preventative mastectomies? Do you feel such measures are more psychological or medical? Preventative mastectomies do not seem to be quite so popular in Europe. Do you feel American women have an over-awareness of breast cancer and are petrified?Mrs. Olson: Its psychological and medical. I dont think you can separate the two We know a young woman, she was of the Ashkenazi Jewish faith and she had the BRCA-gene testing. Her grandmother had breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Her mother had breast cancer and ovarian cancer. She had the test and she was positive. She opted for a double mastectomy at the age of 24. Its a personal decision. That was the best decision she felt she needed to make at that time. And it was part medical and part psychological. She knew at 24 years old, she was living with a time bomb The fear I have with some of the celebrities like Angelina Jolie bringing it out in the open, she glamorizes it, no matter what. Shes a beautiful, beautiful young woman. But she has everything at her disposal to do as much as she can to look the same and not everybody has that. Ms. MacDonald: My philosophy: Do the genetic testing. You go and sit down with a doctor and show the doctor your genetic history A genetic profile goes back to your mom, your moms sisters, your grandmas, everybody in your family Look at your family history, and if you have a strong family history grandmother, mother, daughter all come down with breast cancer those women are frightened because their odds are very high. They need to get a mastectomy and probably a hysterectomy to do all they can do to reduce their risks drastically. And would anybody do that? Yes. But I think there are a lot of women who do this because of hysteria Do the genetic testing first and map out your genetic profile and understand what your risks are. Then make your decision. Q: In her letter to The New York Times, Angelina Jolie wrote, It has got to be a priority to ensure that more women can access gene testing and lifesaving preventative treatment, whatever their means and background The cost of testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2, at more than $3,000 in the United States, remains an obstacle for many women. How do you feel about the cost of BRCAgene testing?Mrs. Olson: Its outrageous and its not covered by insurance. Ms. MacDonald: But the cost should go down now with the recent Supreme Court decision that human genes cannot be patented, meaning Myriad Genetics cannot patent BRCA-gene testing, meaning other companies can make the tests available and more affordable.Q: Where do you stand on the debate over screening? Do you feel mammography leads to over-diagnosis and unnecessary treatment? How do you feel about the National Institutes of Health and a federally funded task force declining to recommend universal screening to women in their 40s, but maintaining screening should be started at age 50 and conducted every two years? Do you feel mammograms at a young age need to be questioned or sanctioned? Do you feel mammograms have led to more survivors, or do you feel mammograms have saved lives? Ms. MacDonald: I had a mammog-CONVERSATIONFrom page 1 Mariann MacDonald felt a lump in her breast. She had just had a mammogram. All looked good. She thought nothing of it. She complained to her secretary, Youre not going to believe this She did not have time for a lump. She would deal with it later. Her secretary rearranged her schedule. Ms. MacDonald went to the doctor. Thats when things started to move quickly. She had to see a surgeon. She needed a biopsy. Sitting in the examining room, waiting to have her stitches out, her doctor told her to get dressed and go into his of ce. Signals started going off. Then she saw her husband sitting there, waiting in her doctors of ce. Thats when she knew. Ms. MacDonald had Stage III breast cancer. Another doctor. Another sweep of tissue. If he could get clean margins, a lumpectomy would be all he would need to do. Or Ms. MacDonald could just go ahead with a mastectomy. Listening to her doctor, she chose the path of least resistance rst. But the tumor was larger than he thought. The cancer was spreading. Lymph nodes were compromised. She had the mastectomy and a year of chemotherapy. She had her chemo on Fridays and would throw up Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Some weekends she never left the bathroom. She remembers the feel of her husband resting his feet up against her back. Monday, she would drag her body out of bed and go back to work. She remembers her hair falling out in the shower, just slipping out of her head. For me to see myself bald made me feel like I was dying, she says. Ill be real honest, people look at you differently. They want to be nice and they feel bad for you, but you can see that theyre looking at you like, Are you going to die? I couldnt take that. Thats not me. Her 10-year-old daughter was scared, and Ms. MacDonald did not want her to see her mother without hair. She bought wigs: blonde, brunette, red, short, long. Her favorite was the Dolly Parton wig, platinum blonde. That was 19 years ago. A former DuPont executive, founder of Endo Pharmaceuticals and current chair of the NCH Hospital board, Ms. MacDonald has lived in Naples since 2005. She volunteers through the Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida af liate, where she has served as past president. Living in Pennsylvania through the course of her treatment, she and her husband funded the Mariann and Robert MacDonald Womens Cancer Risk Evaluation Center at Penn Medicine, wanting to eliminate worry for their daughter, their granddaughter and women everywhere. Bonnie Olson felt a pain in her armpit. It was around Thanksgiving. The pain lasted a week. It went away. It came back at Christmastime, another holiday. She ignored it again. Three weeks later, it came back with a vengeance. She knew it was time to take notice of this pea-size lump in her armpit. Looking back now, she says, You often hear breast cancer doesnt hurt, that if you nd something and it hurts, dont worry about it, because breast cancer doesnt hurt. Well, Im here to tell you, yeah, it does. It hurts. Mrs. Olson was conscious of breast selfexams and annual mammograms, as she had lost her sister-in-law to breast cancer. She was due for a mammogram. Her physicians assistant told her, If we see anything, well do an ultrasound. Mrs. Olson knew something was up when they called the ultrasound technician back in. Afterward, a radiologist told her: You have a lump and it must be removed. You need to see a surgeon immediately. She could not breathe. She walked past her husband in the waiting room. She told him in the car. At home, she questioned: What do we do? Do I start making out my will? She had to wait out the weekend to see her doctor. Monday could not come fast enough. Mrs. Olson had a lumpectomy. A week later she learned the rim of tissue removed showed more cancer cells. Her lymph nodes were infected. Her surgeon felt con dent that another surgery, for further excision of tissue and lymph nodes, would take out all of the cancer. But Mrs. Olson had watched her sister-in-law die. She opted for a double mastectomy. Her surgeon understood. For me, I had to do the most aggressive thing, she says. Mrs. Olson was diagnosed and underwent treatment in Fort Myers. Going through chemotherapy, she remembers her head hurt, her hair hurt, her teeth hurt, her ngernails hurt. She remembers her hair falling out in clumps on the 21st day of treatment. Her husband helped her shave it off. He offered to shave his head, too. She learned how to tie scarves on the side of her face; having the fabric hanging down made her feel like she had something there. She found a support group of sorts through the Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida af liate, where she served as the rst executive director. She currently serves as the secretary for the Interfaith Charities of South Lee and represents the nonpro t in the Estero Chamber of Commerce. She is a 10-year breast cancer survivor.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 NEWS A9 BREAST CANCER AW ARENESS M NTH raphy. It didnt pick it up. But I also do self-breast exams. I think you need both. You need a baseline mammography. And I know when women are young, breasts are more fibrous and everything, but I think if we stop doing it, the emphasis goes away and people forget. I think the biggest thing for me is self-breast exams, because you know best what youre feeling in your breasts. You go to the doctor, yeah, hes doing it at that one point, but you need to know. Youve got to examine your breasts because I felt the lump. Mrs. Olson: You have to become familiar with them and know whats different. Ms. MacDonald: And if you dont do it on a monthly basis, you dont know I had a baseline mammogram at 45. Everything looked good. Another one at 46. Looked good. Then I turned 47 and I found the lump. To me, it felt like a pea. I thought it was going to feel like a lump, its not. It feels like a little pea. Its little, its not huge. You say, What could this be? Its more of an annoyance. You think, It couldnt be anything, but youd be surprised. Mrs. Olson: I know statistics say mammography hasnt done much to save lives and that theres all these false positives, but I think with statistics, you can skew them. Statistics are statistics. I know you have to go by something, but for whatever reason, theyre coming down hard on these mammograms and to me, its something that we have and I firmly believe at 40 you need to start doing them. Whether you do monthly breast exams or not, you need to be familiar with your breasts and know if there are any changes, and a mammogram is what helps detect that My daughter had her first one done at 35 because of me. Ms. MacDonald: They will screen my daughter in her 30s because her mom had breast cancer We have a society thats used to doing mammograms People go and do it because they feel there is something they will get out of it. Will it catch everything? Probably not. But nothing in this world is 100 percent. It isnt. So if you do your self-breast exams and you get your mammograms, you get a baseline, then you know going forward what you need to do I dont believe if somebody sees something on a mammogram theyre going to rip a breast off. Theyre going to take steps: I see something here. Lets see if we can aspirate it. Lets do a biopsy. Well, I think thats worth it to save someones life Women are notorious for putting everything on the back burner. We take care of everybody else and this is one thing that we have and that women seem to do. Were going to make time to do this. We cook, we clean, we do the laundry everyone else comes first. I think for women, this is one area where weve come so far to get to this point, why would we stop now? Its ridiculous. Mrs. Olson: I totally agree. It just seems like a backwards step I have talked to too many people who are alive today because they do self-breast exams and have their mammograms on a regular basis and I just really hate to see us step backwards. Mrs. MacDonald: Theres nothing wrong with awareness, and everyone has her own way of dealing with awareness.Q: How do you feel about the politics of Komen?Mrs. Olson: Im a big proponent of Komen. Ill support them for the rest of my life probably, but I am very disappointed that they have changed their messaging and theyre taking away the messaging about monthly self-breast exams Theyve kind of gone with this belief about mammograms, you know, Science is telling us, studies show that doing self-breast exams has not reduced the number of breast-cancer deaths. Theyve changed their messaging to: Know your risk. Get screened. Know what is normal for you, but they dont teach that self-breast exams should be done on a monthly-basis anymore, and Im disappointed in that. I think Nancy Brinker is an amazing, amazing woman. I think she has done more to bring breast cancer to the forefront than anybody has done, but maybe its time now, rather than only 25 percent of money going toward research, maybe they need to expand (the research) and not (spend) so much on education. Theyve gotten the word out. That said, there are still people out there in all income levels that will tell you theyve never had a mammogram and they dont do self-breast exams, so yes, the education still needs to be there But maybe they need to spend a little more on the research end of things. At our local affiliate, 75 percent of revenue raised stays here locally to fund breast cancer awareness and help breast cancer organizations; 25 percent of revenue raised goes to national to support research.Q: How do you live without the fear of recurrence? How do you live without cancer in the forefront of your mind?Ms. MacDonald: When youre going through this, you have that year, everyone is with you, the doctors, your family, the nurses everyone is focused on you. And then all of a sudden, youre done. Youre like, OK, what does this mean? Im alone. How do I move forward? Thats the struggle Its frightening because this whole year, maybe two, youve been the center of a doctors attention, theyre looking at you, theyre all taking care of you. But now to me, its like putting your child on the bus to go to school the first day Thats how you feel when everybody leaves. Youre alone, thinking, Am I going to make it through this? And just like my daughter made it she got through school, she got through college I knew I would make it through Youve got to say, OK, I did everything they told me to do and now Im going to be fine and whatever happens, I will deal with it. Its like you could walk across the street and get hit by a bus, you know? You could. I mean, do you think about that every day? When you go out to get in your car, do you think, Im going to get hit by a truck today? You dont. And youve got to be the same way with this, or else this disease will eat at you and you will get other diseases from being so stressed out about this disease Whatever happens, we are going to deal with it. We dealt with it once. Well deal with it again. You cant change fate. Whats going to happen is going to happen. Thats how you have to live.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA16 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26 OCTOBER 2 BREAST CANCER AW ARENESS M NTH CHEMOFrom page 1pays as they battle a deadly disease. Otherwise called the oral parity bill, it was approved by state legislators in May with relative ease, then signed into law, even though the insurance industry opposed it. Florida insurers arent in favor of the rule, but they plan to comply with it, said Jim Bracher, executive vice president of the Florida Association of Health Plans. At this point its the law of the state so the companies will do it, he said. Thats just the way it is. The campaign for a parity bill began in 2011, led by Ms. Kristoff, then state chairperson of the public policy collaborative for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Jeri Francoeur, current president and public policy chair for Komens central Florida affiliate, took over that position after Ms. Kristoff became sick. She helped develop a coalition of doctors, pharmaceutical company lobbyists, legislators and others that pushed the legislation through in 2013. Senate Majority Leader Lizbeth Benacquisto, R-Fort Myers, sponsored the bill in the senate. She helped usher it into existence with emotional testimony about her mother, who succumbed to cancer. For doctors, patients and family members, the new measure creating economic parity between two different delivery methods of cancer treatment was a major victory, if long overdue. This bill patches what has been for a long time a real flaw in the system, said Naples oncologist Dr. Joel Grossman, with Florida Cancer Specialists, which counts itself as the largest independent oncology/hematology practice in the United States. There are a lot of flaws in the system and I would say this is a lowhanging fruit kind of flaw. Its surprising this hasnt been fixed before this. And it still hasnt been fixed at least not until the new rule goes into effect next summer. Until then, when he determines an oral medication is the right course of treatment, the patient as well as his staff may have to begin a new battle full of headaches and delays finding a way to pay for it. Until the law takes effect, health insurance companies will only cover the pills under the pharmaceutical part of their plans and not under office visits. Ironically, those with no insurance or low income have found more help paying for the drugs. One route that some patients and family members have taken was to quit their jobs and take lower paying ones so they would qualify for low-income assistance from various sources. Others simply opted for less effective but less expensive treatments, Dr. Grossman said. Its a real kick in the teeth, he said. You write the prescription, talk to them, go through the side effects, make sure it doesnt conflict with their other treatments and then they come back and say, OK, my co-pay is $5,000. The haggling over co-pays has led to perverse economic choices for patients struggling with a deadly illness. Its tragic when someone says they wont go on treatment because they cant get it paid, Dr. Grossman said. But I have seen people do poorly because of that. Cancer drugs in pill form generally come with far fewer harsh side effects, he said such as nausea, vomiting, hair loss and infections from IV drips than traditional clinical chemo. The pills are designed to more precisely target specific cancer cells, while minimizing trips away from home. The drugs can also be mail ordered. The people that are far away from a facility dont have to worry about it, Ms. Kristoff said. Meanwhile, drug manufacturers are producing an increasing array of cancer pills that oncologists prescribe more than ever. Oral drugs to treat cancer have been increasing and increasing, said Dr. Grossman. Really, this is across the board in multiple different kinds of cancers, including leukemia and breast cancer. Iressa is an oral drug used to treat a common form of lung cancer, for instance. Tykerb, which Ms. Kristoff took, is used to treat breast cancer. Floridas parity bill came on the heels of 22 other states and the District of Colombia, which have all passed similar bills since 2008, as use of oral cancer medications became more widespread. ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLYChemotherapy pills could cost more than $1,000 a month. The price should decrease dramatically once new legislation takes effect.

WEEK OF SEPT. 26-OCT. 2, 2013 A19 239-434-6533/thirdstreetsouth.com GLORIOUS FOOD, GREAT SHOPS & GRACEFUL BYWAYSProud Host of the 4th Annual Stiletto Sprint & After-Party Saturday, October 19thTo Benet the Garden of Hope and Courage & Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida Pink promises for a brighter future BY CHARLIE MYRICKSusan G. Komen Southwest FloridaIts been quite an eventful eight months since I started as executive director for Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida. Coming onto the scene just as everything was heating up for the 2013 Race for the Cure allowed me to jump right in and get a running start on the important work ahead. No stranger to the nonprofit world, my career includes six years at the American Heart Association in South Carolina and California and 7 years with the American Cancer Society. I was drawn to Susan G. Komen for many reasons, but a primary factor is that the majority of the money we raise, 75 percent, stays in Southwest Florida, with 25 percent going toward research. This allows us to help deliver the highest quality diagnostic services and treatment through our grantee agencies to our neighbors in our five-county area. Overall, our goal is ensure that our children and grandchildren live in a world without breast cancer, and my plan to expedite that mission is to expand upon the annual Race for the Cure and to create additional signature events so that fundraising takes place throughout the year. To date, we have already put three new events in place: Dine Out for the Cure, Dine & Dash for the Cure and the Pink Promise Luncheon. Our first Dine Out for the Cure took place over the summer, with more than 52 restaurants participating from downtown Naples to Bonita Springs, Immokalee, Sanibel and Fort Myers. We are grateful to the restaurants who eagerly signed on and helped us raise more than $20,000 in this first-year effort, and we are already planning next years event. Dine & Dash for the Cure took place earlier this month at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort Myers and generated more than $6,000. Similar to the successful Stiletto Sprint that takes place in Naples (Oct. 19 this year, see story on page A10), Dine & Dash for the Cure included a 500-yard dash for runners wearing colorful costumes and two-inch heels. And coming up in just a few days, we have the inaugural Pink Promise Luncheon (story on page A10) at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort. Finally, we have set an optimistic course for the 2014 Race for the Cure on Saturday, March 8, once again at Coconut Point. Teams are already forming and the positive energy is flowing. Over the past seven years in Southwest Florida, the race has raised more than $5 million, which has been granted to numerous local agencies. For us at Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida, this is only the beginning. MYRICK BREAST CANCER AWARENESS M NTH

Gulfshore Blvd. N.Goodlette-Frank Rd. 261 9th Street South, Naples www.riverchasedermatology.com Pediatric and Adult Dermatology Dermatologic Surgery Cosmetic Rejuvenation HEALTHY LIVINGExperts will discuss the special needs of young cancer survivorsBefore the early 1970s, chances of survival for children diagnosed with cancer were very grim. Today, nearly one in 20 Americans over the age of 20 is a cancer survivor, thanks to advances in early detection and treatment. Between 75 and 80 percent of children with a cancer diagnosis today are expected to live. With that in mind, the Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, through a grant from the American Cancer Society, is hosting its first PACE Conference to acknowledge the special needs of caring for young cancer survivors and managing the longterm effects of the disease and its treatments. Teens and young adult cancer survivors, their families, caregivers and health-care professionals who work with them are all encouraged to attend from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa in Fort Myers. Its important we recognize that most survivors will develop health issues later in life, explains Dr. Emad Salman, the hospitals director of pediatric hematoloSEE SURVIVORS, A21 Data proves bracing helps kids with scoliosis avoid surgeryBracing in adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis reduces the likelihood that the condition will progress to the point that surgery is needed, according to a study published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine. The work was supported by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health.Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is a curvature of the spine with no clear underlying cause. In mild cases, monitoring over time by a physician may be all that is needed. However, in more severe cases especially when the child is still growing the use of a brace, or even surgery, may be recommended. Left untreated, more serious curves can cause pain and disability. While bracing has been a mainstay of non-operative treatment for AIS for decades, evidence regarding its impact has been inconclusive, said NIAMS Director Stephen I. Katz, M.D., This study is certain to enhance clinical decision-making regarding the nonoperative management of AIS. Researchers from the Bracing in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis Trial (BrAIST) set out to compare the risk of curve progression in adolescents with AIS who wore a brace with those who did not. The study team, led by Stuart Weinstein, M.D., and Lori Dolan, Ph.D., of the University of Iowa, Iowa City, recruited patients who based on their age, skeletal immaturity and curve severity were at high risk for continued worsening of their spinal curves.Investigators enrolled 383 subjects at 25 institutions in the United States and Canada between March 2007 and February 2011. Although the study began as a completely randomized study, the team eventually added a preference cohort, where patients and families could choose their own treatment. Treatment was randomly assigned for about 40 percent of study participants and based on preference for the remainder.Patients in the observation arm received no specific treatment, while those in the bracing arm were instructed to wear a brace for 18 hours per day. Treatment was considered to be unsuccessful when a curve progressed to 50 degrees or greater a point at which surgery is typically recommended. Treatment was considered a success when the child reached skeletal maturity without this degree of curve progression. In January 2013, the trial was stopped early after finding that bracing significantly reduced the risk of curve progression and the need for surgery, and that more hours of brace wear was associated with higher success rates. In the combined randomized and preference cohorts, 72 percent in the bracing group achieved success. Wearing a brace more than an average of 13 hours per day was associated with success rates of 90 to 93 percent. Of note is the fact that 48 percent of patients in the observation group, and 41 percent of patients in the bracing group who wore the brace infrequently, also had positive outcomes.

Nurses strive to achieve the impossible It would seem the acronym of the day for the city of Naples and the state of Florida is BHAG, which stands for Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals. At least that was the clear sense conveyed recently at a city workshop led by Naples Mayor Sorey and at the first Sayfie Summit to Engage Floridas Leaders and Shape Floridas Agenda in Orlando. In their seminal book, Built to Last, Jim Collins and Jerry Porras coined the term BHAGs to represent goals that are easily understood, emotionally compelling, visionary, long-term and seemingly unobtainable (but possible with the right innovation) and that have an end point. Both of the aforementioned meetings focused on game-changing BHAGs to propel prosperity. The city of Naples workshop started with a presentation by yours truly and Michael Wynn about Blue Zones, where people live longer, happier and healthier lives. The Sayfie Summit explored six major areas ripe for disruption energy, education, tourism, health, transportation and water. Both meetings began with the premise that we have formidable attributes as a state and region. Florida has 19 million residents and will surpass New York in population in the next few years to become the third most populous state. If the Sunshine State were a nation, it would have the 19th largest Gross Domestic Product in the world; currently we have the fourth largest GDP as a state. As our state grows older, health care is becoming a priority, as the over-65 age group uses four times the health care as younger age groups. So it make sense that Florida must continue to provide national health care leadership. As to our region of Florida, we have the longest life expectancy for a woman and second longest for a man, are the fifth least obese area of the country, have a very low cardiac mortality and over the past four years have ranked first, first, fourth and third in health of the 67 counties in Florida, according to a Robert Wood Johnson study. The key question at both gatherings: How to be the healthiest? Ideas ranged from becoming a tobacco-free state (my favorite) to becoming the least-obese state. Also included were thoughts about changing our built environment to embrace the principles of Blue Zones regions around the world where more people than anywhere else live to be 100. Other topics included prevention, personal responsibility, access, value (quality/cost), personalized genomics, regenerative medicine and a host of others. Our challenge now is to get to work meeting our BHAGs. We must pick one, educate everyone about it, break it into manageable pieces and set interim goals, and before you know it success. No idea is too big. Just think about President John Kennedys BHAG about landing a man on the moon and returning him safety to the earth. Sure, the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. But the next best time is right now. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.weiss@nchmd.org

The Moon Festival is an important Chinese holida y equi v alent to that of Thanksgiving in the U.S., when families gather and where food is essential. Community School of Naples international students from China were thousands of miles away from their natural families on Sept. 19, the day of the festival so they decided to share the traditions of their celebration with American CSN students who want to expand their horizons beyond Naples. Third grader Vincent Chen came dressed in a traditional Chinese outfit of red and gold, which are the colors of good luck. Ninth grader Matthew Zhao showed a PowerPoint presentation of the history of the harvest festival and explained that the moon in his culture symbolizes harmony. Another ninth grader, Tina You, shared her familys custom of serving mooncakes on what we would call a lazy susan, a new expression for her ever-expanding English vocabulary. Traditional mooncakes, filled with either salted duck egg yolk, sweet bean paste or fruit, were then offered from a red and gold tin box. Young Vincent put one in his pocket and happily ran back to his classroom to give it to his CSN teacher. Earlier in the day, mooncakes were shared at a meeting of the American host families who gather regularly to exchange experiences of having their new children from China.Open house invitationProspective students and their parents are invited to learn more about Community School of Naples during an open house from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17.

Opera Naples has started a new choir f or children ag es 7-12 in the Davis Triangle neighborhood where ONs new headquarters are under way. Auditions for the Triangle Choir are being scheduled to fill 20 openings. The scholarship-based choir program will integrate basic theory and musicianship skills by teaching sight singing, ear training and how to read choral scores along with the fundamentals of good choral singing and vocal method. Triangle Choir students will prepare selections from various genres, including opera, American songbook, musical theater, folk songs, classical, spirituals, gospel and jazz, with many of the classical/opera selections in foreign languages. Rehearsals will take place from 4:306 p.m. every Friday, and the choir will present an informal Saturday miniconcert at least once per semester. The Triangle Choir will serve as a springboard to introducing ONs indepth youth vocal music education program at The David & Cecile Wang Opera Center; the new groups finale will be a performance at the centers grand opening gala sometime in 2014. Opera Naples new headquarters is in an underserved, underprivileged East Naples neighborhood where many children speak English as a second language, Steffanie Pearce, ON founding artistic director, says. When David and Cecile Wang made their transformative donation last year that allowed this headquarters to become a reality, they expressed a desire to help us reach out to the local kids. The Triangle Choir was conceived to honor Mr. and Mrs. Wangs wishes, she adds, and to give our neighborhood children a safe and creative environment to express themselves and build confidence. The Triangle Choir will be led by instructor Rebecca Richardson, a graduate of Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle with a degree in jazz vocal performance with a minor in bass. Ms. Richardson continued her studies in New York via private lessons and ion master classes in piano and voice at the Juilliard School. Her performance career has led her to Paris, Amsterdam, New York, Seattle, and now Naples, where she performs throughout the season with organizations including the Opera Naples Young Artist Division and the Naples Opera Society as well as for area churches and at The Ritz-Carlton properties and Campiello restaurant. She also teaches chorus and drama at Community School of Naples, and has been teaching voice and piano lessons privately for more than 10 years. To schedule an audition for the Triangle Choir, call Robin Frank, ON education outreach director, at 784-2994 or e-mail rfrank@operanaples.org.

At the end, he argued no country is truly exceptional. He, of all people, shouldnt be so dismissive. Russian exceptionalism is one of the profoundest forces in world history. Without it, not nearly as many people would have been sunk in tyranny for centuries, casually sacrificed to the whims of their rulers, and immiserated. It has been the basis for the absolute power of czars and of Soviet dictators, and its spirit lives on in the amoral, lawless rule of Russias top opinion writer. If you want to understand the essence of American exceptionalism, you can quote Patrick Henry or the Declaration of Independence. If you want a taste of the Russian version, you can do worse than the anecdote about Czar Nicholas II fated to suffer an ugly end at the hands of the communists who was asked by a Western diplomat about regaining public confidence. The czar wanted to know whether he was supposed to regain the confidence of the people, or the other way around? Throughout its history, Russia has labored under what the historian David Satter calls the quasi-deification of the Russian state, its special mission overawing picayune considerations of individual liberty or dignity. Given its geographic vulnerability, with Mongol or Turkish invaders perpetually threatening, the Russian state required a vast military establishment and universal conscription. Under these conditions, historian Richard Pipes writes, there could be no society independent of the state. ... The entire Russian nation was enserfed: there was room here neither for a privileged aristocracy, nor for a class of self-governing burghers, nor yet for a rural yeomanry. In the West, private property constituted a check on the power of government absolutism. In Russia, the monarch owned the entire realm up until the late 18th century, so there was no need to convene a parliament to exact taxes and no leverage for the kind of revolt against the crown that forged the Magna Carta in England. People did gain political and civil rights in the early 20th century. Almost immediately they were snuffed out again in a violent revolution. It brought to power a mass-murdering dictatorship that sought the utt er destruction of every hint of life independent of the state. Vladimir Putin may scorn American exceptionalism, but we have a deeprooted inheritance of liberty. As James Bennett and Michael Lotus demonstrate in their new book, America 3.0, American exceptionalism is a centuries-old phenomenon growing out of organic English roots: the nuclear family, common law, representative government, constitutional limits on the state and private ownership of land. It makes for a political culture hostile to autocracy and therefore deeply at odds with Russian exceptionalism. Speaking of Russia, the 19th-century Russian philosopher Pyotr Chaadaev wrote, people always imagine that they are speaking of a country that is like the others. In fact, it is not so at all. Russia is a whole separate world, submissive to the will, caprice, fantasy of one man no matter whether he be called Peter or Ivan. Or, he must imagine and hope, Vladimir. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Americans say no to another Middle East warThe likelihood of peace in Syria remains distant, as the civil war there rages on. But the grim prospect of a U.S. strike has been forestalled, if only temporarily, preventing a catastrophic deepening of the crisis there. The American people stood up for peace, and for once, the politicians listened. Across the political spectrum, citizens in the U.S. weighed in against the planned military strike. Members of Congress, Democrat and Republican, were inundated with calls and emails demanding they vote no on any military authorization. The media credits Russian President Vladimir Putin with extending a lifeline to President Barack Obama, allowing him a diplomatic way to delay his planned attack. But without the mass domestic public outcry against a military strike, Obama would not have needed, nor would he likely have heeded, an alternative to war. At center stage was Secretary of State John Kerry, testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Sept. 4. Anti-war activists from Code Pink sat silently behind him, their hands held high, painted red, symbolizing blood. Kerry asserted: Now I remember Iraq. ... Secretary Hagel and I both voted in the United States Senate. Both of us are especially sensitive to never again ask any member of Congress to vote on faulty intelligence. And that is why our intelligence community took time, thats why the president took time to make certain of the facts ... in order to scrub and rescrub the evidence and present the facts to the American people. Days earlier, Kerry used the phrase we know close to 30 times in his Aug. 30 case for war against Syria. So now that we know what we know, the question we must all be asking is what we will do, Kerry said, reminiscent of similar pre-war ramblings of Donald Rumsfeld, who actually said: There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we dont know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we dont know we dont know. You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, Abraham Lincoln famously quipped, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. After 12 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, thousands dead, tens of thousands maimed and trillions of dollars spent, the U.S. public wont take the rehearsed oratory of an appointed official as sufficient grounds for war. Citizens of the United Kingdom weighed in, pushing their Parliament to vote against a military strike. What are the facts? The regime of Bashar al-Assad stands accused of a heinous attack using chemical weapons, on August 21, in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta. A United Nations chemical-weapons inspection team arrived in Damascus, remarkably, three days before the attack. Its mission was to investigate allegations of chemical weapons use from last spring, in the towns of Khan al-Assal, Sheikh Maqsood and Saraqeb. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon redirected the team to investigate Ghouta, and, after protracted negotiations with the Assad government, the weapons inspectors were allowed to do their work. In their 40-page report, the inspectors summarize clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets containing the nerve agent sarin were used. They did not say who launched the missiles, but they did examine the remnants of several of the rockets used. The team, directed by Swedish chemical weapons expert Ake Sellstrom, performed swift and exacting work under difficult circumstances (they were fired on by a sniper on their way to Ghouta). A war crime was committed in Ghouta. Kerry says we know it was Assad. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov countered, We have serious grounds to believe that it was a provocation, suggesting the Syrian rebels staged the attack in order to draw the U.S. military into their fight against the Assad regime. As a result of this weeks developments, serious progress has been made. Syria has agreed to put its chemical weapons under international control. Iran, which strongly supports the Assad regime, has a new president, Hassan Rouhani, who will come to New York next week to address the United Nations General Assembly. He is expected to speak on the same day as President Obama. More importantly, Rouhani and Obama may actually speak to each other, the first meeting between U.S. and Iranian presidents since 1979. The terrible, ongoing tragedy in Syria, and the U.S. publics persistent opposition to a military strike, could possibly create an opening for a much broader peace in the Middle East.

FLORIDA WEEKLYA32 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 Home Sweet HomeWith its neatly cut lawns and luscious tropical vegetation, wrote a BBC News reporter in July, Miracle Village, Fla., is an idyllic rural community of 200 residents about half of whom are registered sex offenders, attracted to the settlement near Lake Okeechobee because laws and ordinances elsewhere in Florida harshly restrict where they can live (e.g., not within a half-mile of a school or park). Incumbent residents might have been apprehensive in 2009 when a pastor started the local rehabilitation ministry (one even called it a nightmare on Elm Street), but since then, no one could recall a single impropriety involving an offender, and lately, 10 to 20 more applications arrive each week (screened to keep out diagnosed pedophiles and those with a history of drugs or violence). Cant possibly be true Dana Carters debut as principal of Calimesa Elementary School in Californias San Bernardino County was quite inauspicious, as parents quickly objected to his August policy of requiring kids to drop to one knee when addressing him. One parent said her daughter was forced to kneel while awaiting his attention and then to rise only when he lifted his arms. Mr. Carter said he would discontinue the policy and insisted he had instituted it for safety and not because he imagined himself as royalty. Many consumers already distrust food imports from China, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture nonetheless announced recently (and quietly, according to NPR) that it would exempt four Chinese companies altogether from USDA inspections of their processed chicken exports. The changes are part of the departments money-saving streamlining that also cuts back domestic regulation proposals that have already drawn criticism from the Government Accountability Office because they would replace many on-site USDA inspectors with employees of the food-processing plants themselves. It was a tough sell for performance artists Doug Melnyk and Ian Mozdzen to defend their controversial show at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival in July. (Wrote one reviewer: What I saw (on the stage) were not one, not two, but three mayonnaise enemas. (I) do not need to see any more mayonnaise enemas for the rest of my lifetime.) Explained Mr. Melnyk, to a Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reporter in July, if all youre trying to do is figure out what people want and you make it for them, thats not art. ... (Y)oure just a shoemaker. Unclear on the concept In August, the Mother Nature Network website showcased an array of camping gear seemingly designed for the daintiest of those ostensibly roughing it. The Blofield outdoor couch inflates in minutes to produce a facsimile of a Las Vegas lounge sofa. The Rolla Roasters 42-inch-long steel fork assures elegance (and evenness) in marshmallow-roasting. For fashion-conscious backwoods women, Teva makes high-heeled hiking sandals ($330). The mother of all Swiss army knives, by Wenga, has so many gadgets that it suggests a parody of a Swiss army knife. To be a camper is to sleep in a tent, though, and why not the trailer-mounted Opera tent, including hardwood floors and a wine cooler? By her own admission, Joan Hoyt, 61, of St. Louis, has difficulty writing, is easily distracted, needs frequent breaks, and reads about 2 times slower than her peers yet wants to be a lawyer. She filed a lawsuit recently against the Law School Admission Council for special accommodations to take the standardized admissions test after the council offered to grant her only 156 extra minutes for the exam. She also demanded a room by herself with a white noise machine and the ability to bring a computer and food and drinks to the exam. (States have made similar accommodations for bar exams but those applicants have already successfully endured the intellectual rigors of law school.) Inexplicable Is oral sex permitted in Orthodox Judaism? If so, must any lubricant used be kosher (or is kosher required only for substances ingested into the body)? These questions were not answered by Californias Trigg Laboratories, which decided recently to vie for a kosher label for eight lines of Ecstasy lubricant under its Wet label and, following an inspection by the Rabbinical Council of California, was granted it. Many authorities believe that nonkosher products can be used if, like lipstick, they are applied but not ingested. Two onetime roommates at the University of Michigan announced in August that they have developed a smartphone app to accommodate the questionable number of people who seek an easy way to share leftover food on restaurant plates (to save it from wasteful discarding). Using smartphones location service, one diner could offer to clean anothers plate or have a stranger rush to his own table for scraps. Were not gonna make millions, one of the developers told NPR in July. People different from usJian Yang, 33, a media executive in Singapore, told Reuters in September that he was concerned about the diminishing respect the Mattel Corp. is giving Barbie, reducing production in favor of trendier dolls like those modeled after the Twilight characters. Mr. Yang is apparently protective of his collection of more than 6,000 Barbies that dominate his row house which he estimates has cost him the equivalent of nearly $400,000 since he took up the obsession at age 13. He said his parents have come to accept his passion, but acknowledged that he had a few ex-girlfriends who felt insecure around his supermodels. Mr. Yang also owns about 3,000 non-Barbies, and on his last trip to New York bought 65 more.

Such is this weeks column about the 25th annual National Estuaries Day, which is being celebrated Saturday, Sept. 28, at our own Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year.Estuaries are the protected coastal areas where a river meets the ocean and where fresh and salt water mix. Often referred to as the cradle of the ocean, estuaries harbor unique plant and animal communities in their brackish waters. Their importance cannot be overstated. Many animals rely on pristine estuaries for food and for places to nest and breed; humans rely on them for food, jobs and recreation.Estuaries can be sloughs, inlets, lagoons, sounds, bays, mud flats and other coastal habitats that are home to land-based animals and plants, such as pelicans, wood storks, mangroves, deciduous trees and butter flies, as well as aquatic plants and animals such as sea turtles and manatees. As filters for terrestrial pollutants, estuaries provide protection for plants and animals and also for the mainland against flooding.When estuary habitats are lost to coastal development, polluted by runoff and sometimes even paved over, their ability to support life of any kind is crippled. When a salt marsh is filled, it no longer can act as a filter for pollution and sediments from local runoff. And when the sea grass beds and young fish have no place to feed, nest or hide then what? Because of these and many other issues, National Estuaries Day was established in 1988 to promote the need to protect these important and irreplaceable areas for future generations. On our local front, we have the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, founded in 1978 with the mission to protect its 110,000 acres where many threatened and/or endangered species of plants and animals thrive.In its 35th anniversary year, the reserve is being honored by Coastal America, a federal partnership of Coastal Ecosystem Learning Centers, as the third Coastal Ecosystem Learning Center National Designation in the state, and the first in the National Estuarine Research Reserve System. Kudos to everyone involved in making this happen.I encourage everyone to visit Rookery Bay for National Estuaries Day. Clyde Butchers Living Waters photo exhibition is on display in the art gallery. The touch tank is filled with sea stars, a variety of crabs and even a sea cucumber. Aquariums hold native fish including cowfish, burrfish and the polka-dot batfish that is the Rookery Bay mascot. Young visitors on National Estuaries Day will also enjoy face painting and fish printing, and everyone will enjoy live music by JRobert, watching films in the auditorium or grabbing lunch from Russells Clambakes and Cookouts on the picnic patio. Outdoor activities include naturalistled boat tours through the shallow waters of Henderson Creek and Hall Bay. Participants must be 48 inches or taller to get on the boats. Transportation is provided from the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center to and from the boats. From the learning centers backyard, half-hour guided kayak trips are offered on Henderson Creek. Kayak trips offer an intimate connection with the water, mangroves and other habitat and are an ideal way for guests to try kayaking and decide if they would like to register for Rookery Bays two-hour trips offered year-round. Participants must be age 12 or older, and anyone under 18 must register and paddle with an adult. There is a 250-pound weight limit. Also out back at the center, guests are invited to hop on a paddleboard and try the newest sports craze. The boards are 12-feet long and stable, but just like getting into and out of kayaks, feet will likely get wet. There arent any size or weight restrictions for participants, but parents must sign waivers for youth under 18. Bring a child or a friend, and consider becoming a Friend of Rookery Bay. Admission to National Estuaries Day activities at Rookery Bay is free from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28. The education center is at 300 Tower Road, off Collier Boulevard on the way to Marco Island. For more information, call 417-6310 or visit www.rookerybay.org.

Naples, Florida | 239-431-5003 | www.eblinteriors.com PET TALESA tip to helpThe ear-tipping of free-roaming cats benefits pets, people and the community BY DR. PATTI KHULYUniversal UclickAs a veterinarian who practices in a warm climate, treating feral and freeroaming cats is a year-round adventure. Trap, test, sterilize, vaccinate and release is my mantra when it comes to dealing with this population of patients. But in recent years, Ive taken to adding one more thing to that list: ear-tipping.Tipping feline ears is a simple technique that requires an almost bloodless snip of the left ear to help identify the cats as having been sterilized and vaccinated. As such, its considered a purely cosmetic procedure, which I know doesnt exactly sound like a good thing. But because its performed with the cats best interests in mind, this procedure definitely gets a pass on the animal welfare-o-meter. In case youre new to this concept, heres a primer on ear-tipping: The ear-tip is a highly effective device that those who care for feral cat colonies use to monitor the success of their efforts. It also helps animal control officials know which colonies of cats are well-managed and stable. Not only is it useful, but unlike a canine ear crop, its also considered absolutely painless when performed under anesthesia. In fact, cats uniformly recover without pawing at their ears or showing any other sign of distress related to the loss of this tiny bit of cartilage. Nonetheless, there is a downside to ear-tipping: Many people are reluctant to adopt cats with tipped ears. They view it as a slight on the animals natural beauty. I ear-tip only the homeless who come my way as feral or free-roaming cats. These freebie surgical candidates may leave my hospital and find loving forever homes, but the reality is that most will not. The really dismal reality is that all but the most friendly, healthy and comely will land back on the streets. Thats why my policy is to ear-tip almost all of them. Heres more of why: 1. Public safety: Since ear-tipped cats are typically rabies-vaccinated, identifying them as such enhances the safety of the human community at large. 2. Population management: Because ear-tipping helps in managing a communitys colonies, it promotes the welfare of its stray populations. 3. Feline protection: Its the right thing to do for the individual cat. A cat whos not ear-tipped may end up in surgery for altering that has already been done, and who wants another experience under the knife? In communities where cats are targeted for eradication, ear-tipping can make the difference between a freeroaming cats life ... and lethal control. But because ear-tipping may reduce an individuals adoptability, Ive learned that concessions must sometimes be made to a cats demeanor and appearance, depending on her individual circumstances. For example, is the cat truly wild, or a sweet, happens-to-be-homeless stray? Is the cat entering an established adoption program? Or is it at all possible that this stray free-roamer might possibly belong to a neighbor, and is really someones pet? If the animal might be reasonably expected to have a home waiting for him, knowing as we do that humans may refuse to adopt a marked specimen, Ill often opt for leaving the ear alone. Heres where some of you may wonder, Surely there has to be a better way! Plastic surgery just sounds so harsh! But given the current realities inherent to modern feline existence, where entire colonies can be eradicated pending one municipal officials say-so, why leave a life-and-death issue to chance? If whats best for everyone especially for our free-roaming cats is that they get their ears tipped, why should aesthetics stand in the way?

These days, we must be constantly on the ready to have our image captured while being mindful that said images will more than likely show up on Facebook or Instagram within seconds. In other words, its not enough to be ready anymore, we must stay ready. While working on a story recently, I had a phone interview lined up with a woman Id never met before and since I wanted a visual, I Google-imaged her. Of course, the first shot that popped up was one she was tagged in on Facebook happily doing Jell-O shots in a limo and, according to the caption, on her way to a bachelorette party. I certainly didnt judge in fact, I knew wed get along just fine (Jell-O shots, yum ). But a conservative future employer might clutch her pearls a little bit. A quick surf over to Linkedin showed the womans official headshot complete with a business-like updo, a red power suit and a confident but subdued smile. The reality is, people are going to look you up employers, landlords, potential dates (theres no such thing as a blind date anymore), so you have to have the right photos out there. And its not enough to have just one. As stated before, your Linkedin thumbnail should be professional (but not airbrushed to the point where your face looks like wax). Your Facebook profile shot should have a little more personality and joie de vivre, but if youre over the age of 15, I cannot advocate selfies or duck face you can do better. Then theres your Twitter mug shot, which should be a balance between your casual Facebook shot and your professional Linkedin photo. Now, if youre single and looking, your Match.com profile pic would be an ultimate combo of your Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter shots but it should be taken in a gym while youre on the treadmill and wearing Spandex. I know, its not fair, but its true. I dont think you necessarily need a Pinterest profile pic, but if you do, you might want to wear a kitchen apron while holding a glue gun in one hand and crochet needles in the other. Finally, I cant help you with your drivers license picture. There are no filters, no photoshop, no photo approval, and you only get one or two chances. The good news is that its the one picture of you that probably wont be splashed all over the Super Information Highway. P.S. Faithful readers of this column might notice that your diva has a new picture up there, thanks to friend and professional photographer Zack Dobbins.

It seems to divide groups between those who believe that income inequality in the U.S. is unfair and those who believe that the inequality reflects just rewards for intense labor, extensive sacrifice, commitment to higher levels of education, high degree of capital risk taking, etc. There is possibly truth to both sides of the aisle. This debates importance was recently elevated by the Securities and Exchange Commission in that the SEC has proposed a requirement that publicly traded companies annually report the gap in pay between chief executives and rank-and-file employees (which) has been growing steadily Now regulators (the SEC) want companies to tell investors just how wide it is. The proposal comes as part of the roll out of the Dodd-Frank legislation. (DealBook, The SEC proposes greater disclosure on pay for CEOs, Sept. 18, 2013.) The proposed rule would require public companies to report the ratio of top executive compensation to the median compensation of their employees. Median pay is the point at which half the employees earn more and half earn less (DealBook). The SECs five member commissioners were split on the proposal with three voting for the proposal and two voting against the proposal. The public now has a 60-day comment period before the SEC brings the matter to a final vote. Some facts about the current income inequality situation Economic inequality is often defined in multiple ways, as inequality of: earned income (earned in the private sector), total income (earned and unearned income) and/or assets owned. Many of the U.S. foundations and entities reporting on this topic focus on wages or unearned. The data supporting the U.S. studies can be more easily garnered from public company reports that list executive compensation and compensation for all employees. But reports on earned income of executives fail to capture the value of executive perks, option programs and other mechanisms which often dwarf executive wages. Wage inequality in the U.S. has been increasing in the past decade. Compare the present to the 1960s/1970s when the U.S. really had a meaningful middle class. Executive pay is now more than 277 times an average workers pay, compared with just 20 times in 1965, according to the Economic Policy Institute (DealBook). Between 1979 and 2007, wages for the top 1 percent rose almost 10 times as fast as those for the bottom 90 percent: 156.2 percent versus 16.7 percent (State of Working America, 12th edition, Economic P olicy Institute). These disparities are especially pronounced in the explosion of CEO pay, which in the late 1970s was about 30 times that of a typical worker. Today, it is more than 200 times that of a typical worker. From 1978 to 2011, CEO compensation grew more than 725 percent. Private-sector worker compensation grew only 5.7 percent (State of Working America).The problem of income disparity problem is international in scope as this trend characterizes most of the developing world. Most international statistics do not cover earned income only in that such data is not readily available; rather, total income is measured which includes earned income and non-earned income (i.e., unearned income is mostly investment income). Some think the disparity problem is worst in the U.S. The United States has a higher degree of income inequality than almost any other developed country. In fact, the most recent data compiled by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) shows that Chile, Mexico and Turkey are the only OECD member countries that rank higher than the U.S. in terms of inequality. And its only getting worse (The Global Post, the Ford Foundation).With the problem having some definition, the question is whether anything can or should be done to mitigate or resolve the problem. The U.S., in embracing capitalism, has generally preferred that market forces adjust inequalities and that the U.S. government stay out of the affairs of business, especially compensation issues. The SECs proposed rule, if enacted, will certainly raise employee, shareholder and board of directors awareness of the issue. Much of todays corporate gains come from globalization, technologys productivity gains, and the heightened role of risk capital. But for many corporations, their existence was created on the backs of yesteryears laborers. Possibly the SECs idea is a very good one. Some reporting companies will be quite proud of their legacy and others should be embarrassed by their executives grotesque greed, all at the expense of employees and shareholders.Consider writing to the SEC in support or objection to its proposed rule.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 I was founded in Arkansas in 1935 by a guy whose name I bear. He began by delivering chickens in the Midwest, and today Im one of the worlds largest food production companies, processing and marketing chicken, beef and pork. I even offer pizza toppings and tortilla chips. In 2012, my sales topped $33 billion and my average weekly production was 41 million chickens and 400,000 pigs, among other things. I serve customers in about 130 nations and employ 115,000 people in more than 400 facilities. My brands include Corn King, Holly Farms, Bonici, Wunderbar and Weaver. Who am I? Know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Beware of MarginWhat could be better than investing with more money than you have? By investing on margin, you can buy $1 worth of stocks for only 50 cents. That will amplify your gains considerably but be careful. Heres how it works: When you buy securities on margin, youre borrowing money from your brokerage at a variable interest rate while using the stocks currently in your portfolio as collateral. As an example, imagine that you hold $10,000 of stocks and you margin that to the max, borrowing $10,000 to invest in additional stock. If your holdings double in value, youll have earned an extra $10,000 (less interest expense) thanks to margin. But if your $20,000 of holdings drop by 50 percent, theyll be worth $10,000 and youll still owe $10,000 (plus interest). That will leave you with nothing. Your holdings dropped by 50 percent, but margin amplified that to a total loss. Margin cuts both ways. Investing on margin is tempting, but its risky, because if the market turns against you, you either sell for a loss plus interest costs or hold on until the market picks up, paying interest all the while. If youre borrowing on margin and paying 8 percent interest, you better be pretty confident your stocks will appreciate more than 8 percent, and theres never any guarantee of that. (Margin rates these days are in the 7 percent to 9 percent neighborhood, unless youre quite wealthy.) When your margined securities fall below a certain level, youll receive a margin call, requiring an infusion of additional cash. If you cant raise the cash, the brokerage will sell some of your holdings to generate the needed funds. This can sting, sometimes resulting in shortterm capital gains taxed at high rates. Margin can reduce your investing flexibility, too. If youve borrowed money to invest in a stock and it falls sharply, you may end up forced to sell when youd rather wait it out. Only experienced investors should use margin, and many have gotten rich without it, too. High and DryShipsMy dumbest investment was in the dry bulk shipping company DryShips. I believed its story for two years. That has been my biggest loss, and one Im not going to forget. T.H., onlineThe Fool Responds: DryShips has had many believers over the years and still does. Its stock has been roughly halved, on average, in each of the past five years. The lesson it offers is to look closely at many factors when evaluating a company. Its revenue has been growing in recent years, but its bottom line has been in the red. Its share count has been rising, too, diluting the value of older shares. Its fleet is not as young and fuel-efficient as those of some of its peers. The companys debt load has more than quadrupled over the past few years, which doesnt bode well, given its -negative free cash flow. But its also worth keeping in mind that the dry bulk shipping business is a cyclical one, and thus business is likely to pick up in coming years. Still, investors can likely find less risky and more compelling stocks. Game OnIn late July, Rhode Island-based Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) reported lackluster secondquarter earnings, with revenue down 6 percent and earnings down 12 percent. Dismissing the stock would be premature, though, as Hasbro has a lot to offer. Even in the lackluster quarter, revenue in its Games category gained 19 percent while its Girls category surged 43 percent. (Meanwhile, Mattels Barbie line has been posting successive sales declines.) The Boys category dropped 43 percent, but may get some relief via the renewal (through 2020) of Hasbros contract to license thousands of Disney-owned Marvel characters (such as Spider-Man, the Avengers and Iron Man), as well as the Star Wars brand.Hasbro is aiming to keep up with the times, having recently spent $112 million for 70 percent of the mobile game company Backflip Studios. It has also licensed many of its games (such as Monopoly and Clue) to video game-maker Electronic Arts. Hasbro is also a partner in The Hub, a TV network.The stock recently offered a 3.6 percent dividend yield, with its payout having doubled over the past five years. The company has recently upped its stockbuyback plans by $500 million, which will reward shareholders by spreading its profits over fewer shares. Are you game for Hasbro? (The Motley Fool owns shares of Disney and its newsletters have recommended Hasbro and Disney.) Founded in 1902 and based in Decatur, Ill., I start ed ou t as a linseed c ompany. Today Im an agribusiness titan, turning corn, oilseeds, wheat and cocoa into products for food, animal feed, industrial and energy uses. Ive added a major business line about every decade: milling, processing, specialty feed ingredients, specialty food ingredients, cocoa and nutrition. I built an ethanol plant during the Arab oil embargo in the 1970s. I recently made my 327th consecutive quarterly dividend payment, a record of 81 uninterrupted years. I rake in more than $90 billion annually and employ about 30,000 people. Who am I? (Answer: Archer Daniels Midland. Time for Bonds? QI see that bond investments have dropped lately. Is this a good time to buy bonds? B.D., MiamiABond prices tend to drop as interest rates rise, because new bonds are issued at higher rates, making older bonds less attractive in comparison. Interest rates may well keep rising, so bonds may drop further. Keep in mind, too, that over most long periods, stocks have outperformed bonds. Despite all that, bonds still belong in most peoples investment portfolios, as they offer diversification. Many folks with balanced portfolios have seen their stock returns offset losses from bonds. So what should you do? Well, know that there are many kinds of bonds. If you expect interest rates to rise, you might invest in shorterterm bonds instead of ones that lock you into a rate for decades. You might also opt to invest in actual individual bonds instead of bond mutual funds and ETFs, because if you hold them to maturity, youll get your principal back. (Funds and ETFs offer diversification, though.) Another possibility is to invest in CDs instead, as they can offer interest rates competitive with highquality bonds while being guaranteed by the government, too. You can look up CD rates at bankrate. com. ***QIve saved $500 and want to start investing in stocks. What should I do? E.R., Evanston, Ill.AFirst, be sure you have an emergency fund ready, with at least several months worth of living expenses. Next, take some time to read up on investing. Perhaps start with The Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio (HarperBusiness, $16) or John Bogles The Little Book of Common Sense Investing (Wiley, $23).

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 Mr. Marcuzzo has been frequently asked to donate his products to charity at least two are operating in Haiti under the aegis of his good will, for example but hes had a harder time cracking the code required to sell the product to individuals, businesses or large-scale organizations that could use it after such disasters as Hurricane Katrina or Hurricane Charley, for example. To get here, Mr. Marcuzzo earned an engineering degree from Penn State and served in the Navy, then spent years working for Microsoft before retiring in his 40s with the money to do what he wanted design products on his own. He picked Punta Gorda, he says, because it was listed in a national business magazine as one of the top American places to live. He isnt the only one with that kind of entrepreneurial soul. Fish houses Mr. Shepard, for example, who grew up on Southern Boulevard in Palm Beach County before seawalls back when his parents and everybody else were busy chopping out the mangroves, he admits has just secured the required DEP and Army Corps of Engineers permitting to begin deploying his custom-built artificial reefs. He and his partner, Carolann Wade, produce them from their Lantana-based business, Intracoastal Eco-Systems LLC. Our system cleans water and brings the fish back, providing habitat where there isnt any, he says, describing a variety made of a PH-friendly reef mixture with a 500-year lifespan. The biggest ones weigh in at about 2,600 pounds, and come complete with oyster clutches, since a single oyster can filter and clean many gallons of seawater per day. They also include special LED lights in as many as 250 colors to attract small fish and shrimp that larger fish feed on at night. Hes donated several already, he says. One lies in the Peanut Island Snorkel Lagoon and two were sunk in about 50 feet of water last month in Boynton Inlet. We need these on docks and barren seawalls, just everywhere, he insists, speaking not like a businessman, but like a proselytizer.Proper sunlight cannot penetrate decking on docks for sea grass to grow, so you have a semi-barren zone. The reef is made (in different sizes) to go under the dock and out of the way of boating activities.The reef names suggest their functions, each designed to fit a certain environment: the bass bungalow, the snapper and snook snack, the live grouper hotel. The Indian River Lagoon alone has lost over 32,000 acres of sea grasses in the last four or five months. So we plan on doing this huge task one dock and one seawall at a time, says Mr. Shepard. Cost: between $1,500 and $4,000, including lights, permits and installation, he says.Clean, green high-tech fertilizerMeanwhile, John Hartmann, founder and CEO of OceanSolutions (the trademark name) by OceanGrown Inc., in Fort Pierce, has just spent the last decade creating and marketing fertilizer for big agricultural concerns and small farms or backyard gardeners alike, environmentally benign and made from deep-sea water. The water doesnt come to him, he goes to it 40 miles offshore of Fort Pierce, at 100 feet of depth, explains Tom Lonergan, a company spokesman. That water is much cleaner and more pure than nearshore waters, he points out. Seawater is the most minerally dense and nutritious fertilizer we have available. (Mr. Hartman) developed a proprietary machine that can harvest the ionic minerals from seawater. The machine is so unusual, apparently, that the company would not provide a photograph of it. But Mr. Lonergan describes it this way: It looks like something out of Star Trek. It took (Mr. Hartman) more than 2.5 years, and with a career in robotic engineering, to develop a machine that could harvest this delicate whole spectrum of nutrients, without ruining the proportions. Thus, he explains, the fertilizer, liquid but with the seawater itself almost completely removed, contains all 90 naturally occurring elements that are present in seawater. Those become readily absorbed by the plant as soon as it hits the leaves or roots, so it doesnt have to be broken down, he says That has powerful environmental implications. Right there you dont have to worry about runoff. What about the deleterious effects of salt? The proportion of sodium chloride is so minimal, Mr. Lonergan says, that instead of hurting, it helps nutrients to travel into the cells of plants. The product comes in a concentrate that runs $18.31 per 32 ounces (a quart) and the concentrate requires a oneteaspoon-per-gallon-of-water mix. Thus, a little goes a long way. This is a fertilizer that people here, especially in Florida, can turn to and safely use without concern for pets, children and the surrounding eco-system, says Mr. Lonergan. As for the business of selling the product rather than just inventing the technology to produce it, John Hartmann says hes learned a few things along the way. When I first started this adventure as an entrepreneur, I knew I had a special product. I thought that everyone would easily see the value and buy in. The truth was that even the best ideas and products need to have solid business fundamentals to be successful. One of the best lessons I have learned is to surround yourself with loyal people who share your passion. People who only see dollar signs will seldom have the companys best interest at heart. Loyalty not just to the product and the mission, but to the marine environment as a whole characterizes the inventive, devoted people in the public sector who try novel approaches and think through issues for environmental gain, too. That will never be truer than in the case of Capt. Betty Staugler, a Sea Grant Agent for the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences based in Charlotte County. In the effort to preserve marine life from the sea-grass bottom of the chain to the predator top, Capt. Staugler and her colleagues have been studying barotrauma the devastating effect on deep water fish of sudden changes in depth that prevent them from regulating their swim bladders. If you catch a fish and pull it up quickly, air expands the bladder, they cant control it, and the bladder ruptures, she explains. But thats not what kills them, in the end. That air is released into the internal cavities of the fish, so it cant get back down to its depth. It floats on the surface and dies. If it could dive, in other words, it could survive. But theres a solution, which just received the required permitting making it legal on both the Atlantic and the gulf coasts, beginning Sept. 3 in part because Capt. Staugler and crew have tested it successfully. Its a really cool little tool called a seaqualizer like a little lip grip, its attached to rod and reel, you put a weight in it, its pressure activated, and you dial in the depth say you want to release this fish at 50 feet, or 100 feet or 150 feet, you can. It gets the fish back down to depth, where the gasses will recompress, and the fish will survive. Thats just one of a number of new tools designed to help humans avoid destroying the marine environment around them. My job, says Capt. Staugler, is to transfer research at the university out to the coastal communities, and identify needs in those communities that can be solved through university-based science. Which raises an obvious question. What should communities see more of that might boost the economy, provide opportunities for entrepreneurs and also help the environment? Thats a hard one for many who have their feet in the surf or the riverine systems. But Andrew Dickman, who teaches environmental law and land use at the Ave Maria School of Law and served as chair of the recently disbanded (by the county commission) Collier County Environmental Advisory Committee, points to two obvious opportunities that only get minimal attention on the southwest coast, so far, he says: Diving, and serious eco-tourism in the Everglades. On the east coast they sink lots of ships, they make reefs, and they do it all the time, he says. Its not the same sort of environment here as on the east coast, where theres diving farther offshore, the water clarities are nice, and they promote that industry. As an industry anywhere, diving tends to be clean and self-conscious about protecting the environment, too and in Mr. Dickmans estimation, it could be done with much more lucrative results, here. By extension, serious tourism in the Glades would provide many opportunities both for tourists and for entrepreneurs as well, either here or based out of the east coast, he suggests. So many people drive through the Glades, and there are some airboat tours, but its intimidating. So, backwater fishing and eco tours its an industry waiting to happen. It could be made more of. And probably will, given the level of inventiveness in people here. Paul Mancuzzo, the maker of H2O-Go, is reflective about the ongoing American ability to improvise and invent. What Ive seen from the Chinese and India, is that theyre great at reverse engineering, theyre great at building stuff, but for real innovation you dont see that much coming from them. Thats pretty much a U.S. deal innovation. Ive been to shows for exhibiting products in California where you almost have to beat the Chinese off, for example because they want to take close-up pictures of the engineering, even on things like latches.But as far as Florida innovation goes, the more that latches locking undiscovered ideas can be opened, the better, say these marine entrepreneurs. AQUAFrom page 1STAUGLER WADE MARCUZZO SHEPARD Floridas consumer confidence declined one point in September to 76, continuing a four-month slide, according to a University of Florida survey. The decline is definitely a trend and one that is now being reflected in other economic data, said Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Three of the five components dropped. Respondents confidence in the U.S. economy over the next year fell two points to 74. Meanwhile, their faith in the national economic health over the next five years went down six points to 72. Expectations of improved personal finances a year from now was 78, down three points. Respondents overall opinion that their personal finances are better now than a year ago was unchanged at 63, a figure that has stayed level for three months. Finally, survey-takers response to the question of whether now is a good time to buy a big-ticket item such as a computer rose three points to 90. Floridas economic sentiment might be a bellwether for the national mood, Mr. McCarty said. A closer look at recent economic news that seems positive helps explain the growing pessimism, he added. For example, Floridas most recent unemployment figures showed a decline to 7 percent, which is three-tenths of a percent lower than the national average and much lower than the peak of 11.4 percent during the last recession. However, the drop was in large part due to a decline in the size of the labor force, a familiar pattern seen over the past few years, he said. Florida actually lost more than 4,000 jobs between July and August. The impact of this loss was masked by a large number of workers who have stopped looking for work. Their departure from the workforce makes the overall unemployment rate look better than it really is, Mr. McCarty explained. In another odd twist, construction and government jobs that suffered most during the recent recession actually increased last month. In contrast, Floridas job declines were in educational services, real estate, general services and the leisure and hospitality sector, a category that had been strong. Meanwhile, Florida sales tax data now show state revenue projections for August were overestimated, although by a much lower amount than in previous months. Even Floridas housing prices, which have been rising in recent months, might begin to slow. The median price of a single-family home in Florida was down by $4,500 to $175,000 from July to August. Although this price is higher than the same time a year ago, it is the first decline in prices since January. In the short run, housing is likely to be less of a driver of a recovery in Florida, Mr. McCarty said. The next hurdle for the economy is another battle over the national debt ceiling and a potential federal government shutdown in the next couple of weeks, he added. A shutdown of even a short duration would likely be enough to trigger another recession. Many economists have suggested we are due for another one given historical patterns.

The first six-week session of The Arts & Alzheimers begins Oct. 1 and will continue from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Nov. 5 at The von Liebig Art Center. A second program will be offered next spring. Designed for participants and their caregivers, the program emphasizes the benefits of encountering, experiencing and creating art. Art has the power to lift us up, give us a voice and is such a strong connection to who we are as individuals, says Aimee Schlehr, executive director of the NAA. We enthusiastically included The Arts and Alzheimers in our offerings because we believe in the healing power of art. Interactive gallery walks and conversations will introduce participants to specific works of art while engaging their reactions and recollections. These will be followed by an opportunity to create art in various forms in studios at The von Liebig. Co-directors Bernadette La Paglia and Angel Duncan will be joined by several guest presenters throughout the six weeks. Violinist Daniela Shtereva, who holds the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra David & Cecile Wang Chair, and internationally acclaimed pianist Alexandra Sasha Carlson are among the musicians who will interpret works of art at the gallery through music.

Anna Nicole, the opera about Anna Nicole Smith, made its American debut at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York on Sept. 17. Operas are full of tragic heroines, women who are taunted and battered by life. And Anna Nicole Smith certainly qualifies. An exotic dancer and 1993 Playmate of the Year, she married J. Howard Marshall II, a billionaire 63 years her senior, only to become a widow 13 months later.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSIn the sloughs backwaters, a lesson in biologyBack when school budgets still had money or more than they do today, anyway I had the chance to visit the cypress slough in Fort Myers on a seventh-grade field trip. The experience left such an impression on me that when the slough offered a series of wet walks this summer, I was quick to sign up. On a hot weekend afternoon, I waded with a group of strangers into the waters of the preserve. It was impossible not to remember that other long-ago visit. There had been a boy in my seventh grade class named Jeremy with brown hair and dark eyes and swollen knuckles he was always cracking. He was funny, and everyone, even the teachers, adored him. For someone as shy and serious as me, he was a wonder. So it felt like magic when on the field trip Jeremy suddenly seemed interested. There was something primal about being in the slough with its imagined threats of lurking gators and hanging snakes, and for the first time in our lives we seemed to feel the biological beat in our veins. The sensation escalated throughout the day. By the end of the trip, as we sat on benches waiting for everyone to use the restroom before the long bus ride back to school, Jeremy and I were running on full hormonal octane. Do you know how to do a stage kiss? he asked. A stage kiss? I said. Its like this. Jeremy reached one arm around the back of my head, covered my mouth with his hand, and then moved his face back and forth in front of mine. Our lips were separated by a wall of fingers, but still it felt like the most exciting and scandalous moment of my life. I was thrilled. Later, our teacher jerked us both out of line. You need to cool it, she said. And you know what I mean. For a second, I didnt know what she meant. Then I remembered the stage kiss. It must have looked real from her angle. A burning started in my belly and worked its way up to my face. Jeremy laughed and shrugged, but I was too ashamed to even look at him. For the rest of the school year, I had trouble meeting our teachers eyes. But this most recent wet walk, as an adult, seemed to wash away that embarrassing memory. As we meandered through the damp depths of the slough where the deepest parts reach to your neck and the water is cool even on the hottest days, I saw that the strand was clearer than I remembered, tinted brown from the tannin of fallen leaves but still so pure-looking I might take a gulp. In the farthest reaches of the slough, the sound of traffic doesnt reach and the fire flag spreads its broad leaves and apple snails leave clusters of eggs on the barks of cypress trees. There, its easy to see that its all sex and reproduction and the struggle to survive. And if on the cusp of adolescence I stepped off the boardwalk and into the darker heart of that world, whos to blame me? It was only a stage kiss, after all. artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com Complimentary consultations 239-313-2553*Restrictions apply. Individual results may vary.

A drying rack of batik and wearable art hangs behind her; on the table are several rozome (pronounced row-ZO-may) tableaus that feature no less than seven silk canvases in various stages of progress. Ms. Herndons rozome, or Japanese wax-resist dye painting, is thematic; each piece tells a thousand stories, distinct to each viewer. Inspired by nature, especially her immersive kayak trips through the Everglades, she wants the viewer to feel drawn in. The works lend themselves to metaphor, mystery and sometimes ambiguity, the artist says. By being atmospheric and not being too literal, the viewer is left to complete the story as desired or needed, based on personal experiences. I dont try to be too representational, and although I like imagery, it is just a starting place, she explains. As in life, everything interesting happens at the edges of rozome. Thats where the dyes blend together. Just as one thing in life starts and another ends, its in the overlap that Ms. Herndon experiments with color play and ambiguity, making each piece unique. She paints mainly on silk, which she says is her favorite fiber even though the process of using wax and dyes on it is unforgiving. Silk accepts dyes more brilliantly than any other fiber, fueling my experimentation with color, she says. But with the transparent dyes, she cant exactly paint over errors. In some cases, she must simply start over. A wax drip is deadly (to a design), she says. Bins of silks and other materials and five-gallon buckets of dye line one wall of her studio. She mixes her own dyes from four colors: red, blue, yellow and black. She likes the challenge and the originality it lends her work. Ive learned a few thousand ways to get brown, she quips. With brushes of particular shape, line and thickness, she brushes, flicks and splatters wax along the fabric in between layers of dye to preserve different shades. As she goes, she teases out the designs shes roughly sketched onto the silk. I have a plan, but something else takes over, she allows. After learning traditional batik at the University of Montana and obtaining a masters degree in fibers at Southern Illinois University, Ms. Herndon studied rozome and with Betsy Sterling Benjamin and found the technique to be infinitely more intriguing, much more flexible and painterly. She says it presented her with a new fluidity to the dye process, which captivated her imagination and changed her creative process. Ms. Herndons award-winning works have been exhibited in numerous juried national and international shows and solo shows in more than 12 states as well as the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. She occasionally holds small classes out of her studio, and she will be the first featured guest of the Naples Art Associations 2013-14 series of A-Muse evenings on Thursday, Oct. 10.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 Can this opera be saved?When it was founded in 1943, the New York City Opera was called the peoples opera because of its mission to make opera available and affordable to everyone. It is a rare opera company that continually champions American composers and new works. Anna Nicole is the companys first opera of the 2013-14 season. It might also be the last. The opera company, which left Lincoln Center in 2011 because of financial difficulties, has announced an urgent $20 million fundraising campaign on its website and needs to raise $7 million by the end of September. It has started a $1 million campaign on Kickstarter, the online fundraising site. For more information, call (212) 870-5626 or visit www.nycopera.com. ANNAFrom page 1Unfortunately, Mr. Marshall had not updated his will, and his widow spent at least a decade fighting in the courts for her portion of his estate. Struggling with the pain caused by her oversized breast implants, she grew addicted to pills and alcohol. She played bit parts in movies and television, finally starring in her own reality TV show on E! Anna Nicole wanted to be the next Marilyn Monroe but instead became tabloid fodder, the punch line of jokes. Her life was such a disaster that a biography about her was titled Train Wreck. She gave birth to a daughter just days before her son died of an overdose. Soon afterward, Anna Nicole died of an overdose of prescription drugs in Hollywood, Fla. She was 39 years old. She did have a tragic life, says soprano Sarah Joy Miller, who portrays Anna Nicole in the American debut. I dont believe (the opera) is laughing at her at all, she adds. Its very much in the spirit of who she was. When you looked at her life, she loved being in the public eye, no matter what her circumstance. (Throughout her life as) a sex kitten, a beauty and then the reality television show, she presents herself as being ridiculous. Its her version of Lucille Ball. I think she laughs at herself. I think she would really enjoy that theres an opera out there about her.Violetta and Anna NicoleEarlier this year, Ms. Miller starred as Violetta in La Traviata at the Palm Beach Opera in West Palm Beach. (Her husband, David Miller, a member of Il Divo, also performed in the opera as Alfredo, Violettas love interest.) In 2012, for the PBOs 50th anniversary gala, Ms. Miller sang an aria and the drinking song from La Traviata and was invited to return this past January to perform in a fully staged production. She describes the experience of performing her first Violetta as so wonderful, a dream of an experience, with Renata Scotto directing I love that company so well. Daniel Biaggo, general director of the PBO, describes her performance as Violetta as sparkling. Ms. Miller, he adds, is one of those people who have such a radiant personality on stage. She draws the focus of the audience to her beautiful, open face that is so expressive She has this incredible ability to access the top register of her voice, and throw off the coloratura passages with ease. And though Violetta and Anna Nicole might seem to be disparate roles, Mr. Biaggo sees similarities. A lot of the motivating factors are the same between the 19th century heroine and the 21st century one, he says. There are some fateful decisions that are made at a (pivotal) moment. Theres a great underlying humanity for both of them, who mean to do the right thing and mean to do well. Mr. Biaggi will fly to New York for the Sept. 28 closing performance of Anna Nicole.Bawdy but charmingLike the celebrity herself, Anna Nicole the opera is audacious, bawdy, over the top and more than a little trashy. Its also cheeky and irreverent, thanks to the witty librettist Richard Thomas, who co-wrote Jerry Springer: The Opera. The star makes her entrance kneeling on an oversized gold armchair, surrounded by TV reporters. I want to blow you all/I want to blow you all /A kiss, she sings coquettishly. That really sums her up, and her sense of humor, Ms. Miller says. (She had) a dirty sense of humor, but a lightness about her. There is something charming about it. Mark-Anthony Turnage, who was commissioned by the Royal Opera in London to write Anna Nicole, composed the music to include elements of jazz and show tunes, as well as some burlesque/stripper music, heavy on the horns. As the chorus sings in the beginning: Its a unique story/So you wont be bored/This actually happened/Though some of the details are sketchy/And vary according to whose account you read. They also introduce the opera as one bleak nihilistic tale/ an absurdist story of woe. The opera doesnt mock Anna Nicole as much as it portrays her humanity and her difficulties in life, as she fights to escape poverty and then struggles to become famous. Its an indictment of our celebrityobsessed culture and medias desire to record everything, especially the more sordid moments. Its probably the only opera to contain country line dancing, strippers pole dancing, a woman using a toilet, a breast implant scene and The Larry King Show. Theres an aria celebrating breasts, listing increasingly ridiculous slang terms, and another about Jimmy Choos and the sound they make on a red carpet. (This is the sound of fame, Anna Nicole sings.) But theres also more than one death scene, and body bags. Toward the end, the star sings, Made some bad choices/made some worse choices/Then ran out of choices.The breastsWhen Anna Nicole tries to make money as a lap dancer, potential customers ignore her. The other dancers tell her she needs to get breast implants. They send her to Dr. Yes, who persuades her by saying, Get real, get surgery/Or go back to poverty. She finally acquiesces, but requests, Lets start small. He replies, If you start small, why bother at all? After hemming and hawing, she finally gives in, singing, Oh, whatever. Supersize me. And he does. The bowling ball-sized breasts cause severe back pain and start Anna Nicoles fatal addiction to pills. Ms. Miller wears a pair of prosthetic breasts for the role. Its really interesting to wear them, she says. Theyre quite comfortable. Theyre not heavy. And although they dont affect her singing, she says, they do affect her balance. Its hard to find my grounding, she says, noting that posture and spinal alignment are key for opera singers. In addition to 6-inch heels and breast prosthetics, Ms. Miller, whos a slim 5 feet, 9 inches tall, wears a body suit in Act II to reflect Anna Nicoles weight gain. Thats harder on my physical body than my voice, she says. Its incredibly physically exhausting. The other night, she twisted her arm, but didnt realize until afterward that shed done so. What opera requires is a certain relaxed strength, she says. You want to have strength in your body but also be relaxed. The opera also demands emotional stamina. Once we get close to the show, I feel dread when we get into Act II, she confesses. Its heavy and difficult, and I have to put myself through that emotional journey every time we do it. But all in all, its a fantastic artistic experience. There are so many extremes of her life I experience so quickly. Its been a learning experience. Exhausting, but enjoyable as well.More firstsBecause Anna Nicole was a native Texan, Ms. Miller had to learn how to sing with a Texas twang. But that wasnt the most difficult thing, she says. Anna Nicole was the first time shes ever sung an opera in English; shes more used to singing in French or Italian. In English, she says, Were more consonant-heavy in the way we express ourselves. It was a completely different world for me. She also celebrated another first; opening night of Anna Nicole was the same day her first solo album, A Glorious Dream, a collection of opera arias, was released. Shell perform at (le) Poisson Rouge in New York Oct. 30, and also at St. Barts Music Festival in January again. And Id love to come back to Florida, she says. I love Florida.Challenges and rewardsI feel that people either totally get this opera, or they dont, Ms. Miller says. (Purists and traditionalists tend to fall into the latter camp.) What we are striving to do with this production is humanize Anna Nicole Smith, not make her something she wasnt, she says. She wasnt perfect. This is a person who went through all these struggles, the Anna Nicole we saw on the news (and in) the sensational headlines. Im sure there was a lot behind the scenes that we didnt see. Many great performers have portrayed Violetta in La Traviata, she says. We dont have film of Violetta. It was a story. And so someone can get on stage and be a very thin, brunette Violetta, or a blonde, voluptuous Violetta. We dont question that. The interesting thing about portraying a character in an opera who was an actual person is to not make it some sort of imitation. Youre trying to find the essence and heart of the character, also knowing that people are going to expect that theyre watching Anna Nicole. Its a different type of challenge than any other kind of opera. She watched everything Anna Nicole did and also watched a lot of Marilyn Monroe, because Anna Nicole idolized her and wanted to be like her. But one incident this summer gave Ms. Miller a revelation about the woman. Dressed as Anna Nicole, she rode on a float in the New York Gay Pride Parade. It was an interesting moment for me, she says. One of the things she represented for people was this feeling of love and acceptance, no matter who or what you are. When people saw Ms. Miller as Anna Nicole, she says, they would light up and wave and blow kisses. There was just this love, adora tion. I think she represented that acceptance. She was longing and wanting that, and so she gave that in a lot of ways. It was a beautiful realization that helped and guided me in finding her. a w as e e ra s and 14 $20 r ai se sensa a t u a u s t g a yan n o See Anna Nicole on DVDAnna Nicole had its world premiere at the Royal Opera House in London in September 2011.

Each session will conclude with helpful, practical information for caregivers. Emphasis will also be placed on the medical arts, factoring in the importance of exercise and good nutrition. Whole Foods will donate box lunches to be enjoyed in the shade at Cambier Park, and a stroll through the park will be encouraged. Ms. La Pagila, an educator, artist and registered nurse, says the capacity of the arts accommodates an aesthetic approach to working with those afflicted with Alzheimers. All too often, they are left out of the loop of life, she says But the arts are all inclusive. They enhance our ability to empathize, affirm and engage, she adds. Ms. Duncan, an art therapist and mental health counselor, concurs. We want to reintegrate them into the community and help others recognize them as individuals, not as a disease. Having the means of coming to a safe and welcoming place in the arts bridges these connections. Here they thrive in a positive, social experience that sparks recognition, brings back memories and increases their quality of life, she says. Natasha Lidow, president of the Opera Naples Guild, is also contributing to program development for The Arts & Alzheimers. Tuition for the six-week program is free for enrollees, thanks to a gift from Peter and Stella Thomas and sponsorship by Moorings Park.

Ive been thinking about that story lately, because Im facing a similar dilemma. I grew up in New York City, know how to navigate the subway and feel very comfortable surrounded by tall buildings. When it comes to movies, Im much more Tom Ford than John Ford. (Though I do intend to view some John Ford movies because theyre classics and, I suspect, surpass genre.) But lately, Ive been captivated by a cable TV series about cowboys, of all things. No one is more surprised than me. Ive never been much for cowboys or westerns, with all those dirt roads, snorting horses, rifles and funny clothing. I could never figure out why people idolized John Wayne. And yes, even though my last name is Stetson, those cowboy hats seemed a little silly. And all those cowboys who would say nothing more than Yep or Nope and spit on the ground were absolutely Neanderthal. It was all so foreign to me. Then there was the stereotypical misrepresentation of Native Americans as savages. My good friend Kate Whitehawk would tell me stories of watching westerns as a child. Theyd laugh at all the mistakes the white filmmakers had made for example, how they would arbitrarily mix different tribes together. Or the way theyd put dark make-up on some white people to try to make them look Native American. Theyd cheer for the Indians. My friend Kate died a year and a half ago, and I miss her. I miss our late-night long-distance conversations. She had great insight. She helped this city girl develop a deeper love and appreciation of nature. She taught me about her peoples ways. We shared a passionate love for good books, movies and music. I wish I could tell her about this show. I wonder what she would say. How in the world did I wind up watching a television series set in Wyoming? I started in Los Angeles. I was a latecomer to the TV series Southland, which is set in Los Angeles and filmed on its streets.Another police procedural? I initially thought. Not interested.But Id read good things about it, so I rented the first season. I was soon hooked. The show, created by Ann Biderman, is more of a character-driven drama than a typical police procedural. It not only looks at the unexpected, violent situations cops face on the streets, but examines how the job affects their personal lives. Southland ran for one season on NBC and then for four more seasons on the cable channel TNT. (All five seasons are now available on DVD.) Executive producer Christopher Chulack and cinematographers Cameron Duncan and J. Michael Muro moved on from Southland to work on Longmire, a contemporary crime thriller set in Wyoming. I was initially dubious, but remembered how rewarding Southland was. So I rented Longmire. Ive been pleasantly surprised. As a promotional trailer for the A&E cable series says: Absaroka County, Wyoming. When you get right down to it, its not all that different from New York City. Both have their good points and bad points. Both have wealth and poverty. Both have problems with race, corruption, with violence, greed and murder. Longmire possesses a richness and a depth not often seen in westerns. Theres a reason its A&Es mostwatched drama. Walt Longmire, the sheriff in town, is a widower. Though his wifes been dead just a year and hes still mourning her loss, people expect him to function as if nothing has happened. As part of his job, he has to notify people when a loved one has been killed. Its a task he dreads, knowing firsthand the pain of loss. Sheriff Longmire, played by Robert Taylor, isnt a man of many words, but he talks more than your typical cowboy on any screen. And when he does say something, theres intelligence and wit behind it. Hes also not afraid to show emotion. Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica) plays Victoria, a new deputy who has transferred from Philadelphia. Wyoming is as foreign to her as the craters of the moon. The series, though, is actually filmed in New Mexico. There are vast expanses of land and snow-capped mountains. And the sky, at least to me, looks just as big. Theres almost a Zen peacefulness to the show, and the directors arent afraid to have moments of silence. (As trumpeter Nicholas Payton has said, Its where you choose to put silence that makes sound music. Silence is what makes sound sexy.) Ms. Sackhoff explains in the short feature titled The Cameras Eye; Realizing the World of Longmire: There are these big, dramatic pauses, whether its done with the scenery or by the actor pausing, or the written pause from the writer, (or) the director asking you to take this moment, there is a real intention to what the spaces are, and they really want you to make sure that youre catching every single detail, so you understand the weight of it. Lou Diamond Phillips plays Sheriff Longmires friend, Henry Standing Bear. And the great thing about the Cheyennes onscreen theyre actually played by Native American actors and locals. The series, which will air its third season next year, is based on Craig Johnsons novels about Walt Longmire. I like the A&E series so much I just might check out one of the books. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 C11 Is it worth $10? YesWorld, meet Denis Villeneuve. In the coming months his name is going to appear on all sorts of Oscar promotion advertising, and rightfully so: His film Prisoners is one of the best dramas of the year and more importantly, it marks him as a director to watch for years to come. Prisoners is layered, deep and thought provoking, a crime drama of mood and tone highlighted by a great script and stellar performances that merge perfectly with Mr. Villeneuves precise vision. When all of a films desired elements come together this nicely, crazy things such as Oscar nominations happen. Hugh Jackman stars as Keller Dover, a hard-working handyman who lives in the Pennsylv ania suburbs with his wife Grace (Maria Bello), teenage son Ralph (Dylan Minnette) and young daughter Anna (Erin Gerasimovich). Their neighbors and friends are the Birches: Franklin (Terrence Howard) and wife Nancy (Viola Davis), teen daughter Eliza (Zoe Soul) and youngest daughter Joy (Kyla Drew Simmons). One of the worst scenarios imaginable becomes a reality when Anna and Joy, sent off to play on their own, go missing. Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) leads the investigation, while Keller and Franklin join search parties in hope of finding their daughters. The only true lead is an RV ominously parked in their neighborhood the day the girls were taken, but its driver, Alex (Paul Dano), has the IQ of a 10-year-old and his aunt (Melissa Leo) is little help. What you appreciate most about the characters is how original they feel. The embattled detective whose work consumes him usually has personal problems, but we only see Loki as a professional who is frustrated and trying hard to solve the case. Mr. Gyllenhaal does a nice job of giving complexity and depth to someone who in some ways is just as flustered as Keller and Franklin. And although weve seen countless screen parents do anything to get their children back, Keller takes this to such an extreme that hes willing to sacrifice his morality for the mere hope that his daughter is still alive. As a result, he loses part of himself in the process, which makes his forceful determination both inspiring and frightening. This performance is much more complex than a desperate dad wholl do anything, and Mr. Jackman has the physicality and sympathetic presence to be extremely convincing. Gray Pennsylv ania skies, moody music that conveys emotional longing and a dark ambiance provide Mr. Villeneuve the ideal palette on which to build this dark tale. Themes of revenge and religion help accentuate events, and acknowledgement must also go to screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski for the layered script with emotional depth that keeps us invested for a full 153 minutes. Be sure to observe as much as you can throughout, as the small, seemingly insignificant details turn out to be essential in solving the crime. Prisoners discards standard Hollywood formula in lieu of a grittier, more practical narrative, and it is better because of it. The grim tone, coupled with great performances and a smart, exact script, make this a movie you dont want to miss. LATEST FILMSPrisoners h h h w b f a danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Prisoners is receiving strong Oscar buzz after positive reactions at the Telluride and Toronto lm festivals. CAPSULESInsidious: Chapter 2 (Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye) Picking up where the 2010 hit Insidious left off, Renai (Ms. Bryne) wonders if husband Josh (Mr. Wilson) is possessed, while other events shed light on what occurred in the first film. There are some good scares, but the story is regimented and overall a tad underwhelming. Rated PG-13. The Spectacular Now (Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kyle Chandler) Sutter (Mr. Teller) is the popular kid in high school, and he unexpectedly takes a liking to Aimee (Ms. Woodley), who doesnt have many friends. A symbiotic relationship ensues and a beautiful one at that. Touching, heartwarming and surprisingly real, this is a teen drama from Americas heart. Rated R. The Worlds End (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike) Five old friends reunite in a sleepy English town to finish the pub crawl they began 20 years earlier, only to find out alien robots have taken over the bodies of the locals. The comedy doesnt hit the way it needs to. Its as if the writers (Mr. Pegg and Mr. Frost) know how to write jokes for drunk dudes at a bar, but are notably less comfortable/competent when it comes to alien invasion comedy. Rated R.

We are presenting an impressive series of fascinating and compelling exhibitions that illustrate the richness and diversity of our programmatic scope, says Frank Verpoorten, museum director and chief curator. The museums permanent collection has not yet received the (inter)national exposure it deserves, he adds. Therefore, we are increasingly committed to developing exhibitions from our eclectic holdings. Exhibits in the main galleries for the new season include life-sized costumes made from paper by Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave, a retrospective survey of the work of Dutch sculptor Hanneke Beaumont and An Ear for Music, an Eye for Art, consistiong of works from one of the museums most important collections amassed by the late Ahmet Ertegn. In addition, the museum hosts the Schrenk Student Photography Exhibition in the Hayes Hall galleries.

FLORIDA WRITERSNew book opens the door for new Neapolitans Moving to Naples: the Un-Tourist Guide by Alysia Shivers. Voyager Media. 150 pages. Paperback $24.95. Also available in Kindle and Nook ebook editions.If, like me, you have been trying to keep people from moving to Naples, youve discovered that its a losing battle. They come no matter what roadblocks we put in their paths. To satisfy the needs of newcomers to our beloved Naples area, and especially to help those who are considering or planning to make Naples their home, Alysia Shivers has created a guide that is user-friendly, packed with information and fun to explore. Moving to Naples is not the usual tourist guidebook that tells us how to enjoy a visit; rather, it gets down to the nitty gritty of living here. Ms. Shivers provides concise and oftencolorful information about the school system, outdoor life, shopping, getting around, public services, jobs and businesses, health care, the housing market, neighborhoods, nightlife and almost anything one can think of. Moving to Naples is the first in a series of similar books that Voyager Media is making its publishing niche. Moving to Sarasota and Moving to Charlo tte are soon to follow. The book is attractively designed, with color-coded headers identifying main sections with inviting titles (Naples Is a Shopping Mecca, for examples, and Florida Seasons, Assimilate: Associations and Social Ties, The Economy and Can You Live Well Here?). Ms. Shivers also provides a Practical Notebook on Moving and a list of key online resources. The book is abundantly illustrated, though the color reproduction is only mediocre. I guess the cost needs to be kept under control. I appreciated Ms. Shivers industry in comparing and contrasting the cost of living in Naples to that in other desirable locations across the country. She provides statistics about home prices, property taxes and utilities to make the case that living in Naples is not beyond the means of normal wage earners. However, I found the housing cost comparison lacking because it does not take into account the skyrocketing costs of homeowners insurance in Florida, especially in the coastal areas. Maybe shell attend to that issue in the next edition or online update. Ms. Shivers sometimes presents information through the effective use of charts. She presents the cost-of-living materials this way, statistics on population growth and also the information on representative Collier County salaries for professionals. This is only one way in which the author uses visual communication, as well as a clear, friendly writing style, to make her points. Yes, books like these can go out of date quickly. Just remember the recent ups and downs of the housing and employment situations here and youll understand why the information provided in Moving to Naples will need to be revised from time to time. The author and publisher provide a website www.movingtonaplesguide. com where information can be freshened and expanded. A licensed real estate agent with a background in journalism and public relations, Ms. Shivers has been able to blend her areas of expertise into a lively, compact guide that anticipates questions and answers them concisely and enthusiastically. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. philJASONpkjason@comcast.net SHIVERS

FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-OCTOBER 2, 2013 Before plastic, iron toys tickled imaginations BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELOld toys are very different from those made today. Toymakers of long ago did not try to encourage creativity. A toy was made to resemble a known part of life a house, car or pet or perhaps a fantasy a rocketship or robot. Or they were puzzles meant to teach the alphabet or arithmetic, or character dolls from stories that told of good behavior or gave lessons from the Bible. In the late 19th century, a group of cast-iron bell-ringer toys became popular. These were pull toys with a platform and four wheels. The figures on the platform moved when the toys wheels turned. The Trick Elephant Bell Ringer, with its name in raised letters on the side, was made by the Gong Bell Manufacturing Co. of East Hampton, Conn. When the toy was pulled, the wheels moved and the elephant turned and hit the bell. The elephant stands on a pierced and painted platform, suggesting that he is a circus performer. The painted iron toy, about 5 inches high and 8 inches long, sold for $1,230 at a Skinner auction in Boston. Q: My wife bought what our family refers to as our dog chair at a garage sale for $9. It was in a great deal of disrepair and we had it professionally redone. Its made of walnut, upholstered in leather, and has carved dogs heads at the end of each arm. The dogs faces and collars are slightly different from one another. We were told that one is a female and the other male. Im not sure if that makes sense. What can you tell me about this chair? A: Chairs with arms that end in animal heads were popular in Victorian times and later. Dog heads are the ones most often found. Your chair is unusual because the heads are slightly different, but whether or not they represent a male and female dog is something only the maker would know. Its not possible to give an accurate value for your chair since the maker and age are unknown, but you can be sure that your wife got a good value for $9 and KOVEL: ANTIQUESAn elephant that could ring a bell was the feature of this antique toy. The clever toy, rare and entertaining but with minor paint loss, sold for $1,230 at a Skinner auction in Boston last fall.

Value: about $200. Q: I have a perfect set of dishes, marked Monarch China, Made in Occupied Japan, Montana Rose. The pieces are decorated with roses and trimmed in gold. There are 96 pieces in the set, which includes 12 place settings and various serving pieces. Can you tell me something about the dishes and how much theyre worth? A: Your dishes were made between 1947 and 1952, w hen Allied forces occupied Japan after World War II. They were made specifically for export. Sets of Monarch Chinas Montana Rose pattern dishes have sold recently for $120 to $250. Q: My aunt gave me a silver tea set that includes a coffeepot, teapot, sugar, creamer and tray. The coffeepot has a mark on the bottom that says 883 with a crown in the middle of the number. It also says F.B. Rogers Silver Co. I know its old, but Id like to know if its considered an antique, if its real silver and if it has any value. A: F.B. Rogers Silver Co. was founded in Shelburne Falls, Mass., in 1883. It moved to Taunton, Mass., in 1886 and became a division of National Silver in 1955. T he mark on your coffeepot was used for several years after 1886. F.B. Rogers made silver-plated tea sets in different styles and sizes. The largest sets include a waste bowl with a lid and a coffee urn. The company also made silver-plated flatware and sterling-silver flatware. The value for your tea set depends on its condition, style and the total number of pieces in the set. A five-piece set that included a waste bowl sold for $175 earlier this year. Q: My grandfather gave me a beautiful little cup about 50 years ago, when I was a little girl. I dont remember ever hearing any history about it. Its made of some type of metal and stands about 8 inches high. Its embossed with birds and cattails, and is on a pedestal base thats engraved Third Swiss Festival N.Y., July 18th, 1875. It is marked Meriden Company. Can you tell me anything about this curiosity? A: The Third Swiss Festival was held at Jones Woods, a picnic grounds and resort in Manhattan, in 1875. The event included competitions in bowling, equestrian movements, gymnastics, marksmanship, wrestling, singing and dramatic presentations. A silver cup was awarded as first and second prizes in the singing competition. Meriden was a silver-plate manufacturer in Meriden, Conn. The silver plating may have worn off your cup, leaving the base metal exposed, or it may be a metal replica sold as a souvenir of the event. Tip: Watercolors and sketches should be kept out of sunlight. Hang framed works on a wall that is shaded. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Today, all that has changed. National tournaments now attract scores of the worlds top players from Europe, South America and the Far East including mainland China. The result has been that many of the ACBLs most prestigious titles lately have been captured by visiting internationalists either independently or in concert with North American players. One of these successes was a victory in the 2001 Spingold Teams. Americans Ralph Katz and George Jacobs teamed up with four of the 2000 Olympiad champions, Giorgio Duboin, Alfredo Versace, Lorenzo Lauria and Norberto Bocchi of Italy, and scored a 48-IMP victory in the final over an upstart team captained by Mike Moss. Todays deal from the final shows the Italians in action. Bocchis opening two-spade bid showed spades and an unspecified second suit. West doubled for takeout, and when East left the double in for penalties, Bocchi retreated to his other suit. West doubled this for penalties, and Duboin now made an excellent decision to leave his partner in diamonds despite holding a significantly better spade, as East was already known to be well-heeled in spades. Three diamonds proved impossible to beat. Bocchi ruffed the heart lead and conceded a spade to Wests ace, and West could score only his K-Q of diamonds from that point on. So the contract was made with an overtrick for a score of +570. At the other table, the American North played in four hearts, down three, for -150. The two results combined gave the eventual victors a 12-IMP gain on the deal. 239.262.8111esh, Fast DELIVERY PIZZAFUSION.COMTWITTER.COM/PIZZAFUSION FACEBOOK.COM/PIZZAFUSION WE COME IN THE NAME OF PIZZA.But not just any pizza.

Summer Special2 for $49*plus tax & gratuity PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: The Counter Custom Built Burgers, 9110 Strada Place, Mercato, Naples; 566-0644 If its burgers, fries and sodas the kids want, heres a place where everyone will feel happy about their meal. The Counter serves Angus beef from humanely raised cows free of hormones and antibiotics. (Or select vegan, bison, turkey or chicken burgers). Then choose from a dozen cheeses, 32 toppings, 23 sauces, six buns (one is glutenfree) or a salad. Whew! Milkshakes come in regular or adult versions (with a shot of your favorite alcoholic beverage). I enjoyed a turkey burger with Gruyere, cole slaw, grilled pineapple, roasted corn and black bean salsa, sauted onions and ginger soy glaze on a wheat bun. To my surprise, the whole thing even held together. My companion liked the Old School burger: beef with Tillamook cheddar, lettuce, red onion, pickle, tomato and red relish. Sweet potato fries and crispy onion strings were just right, as were cocktails and a brownie with ice cream, caramel and chocolate sauce. The servers could not have been nicer. Full bar. Food: Service : Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2013 Figs Grille, 25987 Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Sam Tadros, the chef behind the popular Sam-Bucco Bistro in North Naples, has another winning concept with this exploration of the cuisines of Turkey, Spain, Morocco, Lebanon and France. When you cross the threshold, its easy to forget youre in a commercial strip center. Egyptian tapestries adorn the walls in the garnet and gold dining room. Ceiling lamps evoke Morocco and ethnic music plays softly in the background, but the effect is understated. Whichever country you decide to visit for your main course, your meal should begin with the mezze platter of hummus and baba ganoush as well as charry and sweet grilled eggplant chunks and cucumber salad served with lightly pickled vegetables. You cant go wrong with one of several Turkish kebabs or with the filet medallions with grilled shrimp, garnished lavishly with caramelized onions, port wine sauce and fig chutney. Lush (chocolate marquise) or light (lemon semifreddo), dessert shouldnt be missed either. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2011 Incas Kitchen, 11985 Collier Blvd., Naples; 352-3200 I loved this place when it was just a little hole in the wall. Now that its blossomed into a big, sleek establishment with a full bar and expanded menu, its better than ever. Chef/owner Raphael Rottiers continues to bring Peruvian flavors to American palates in a way that has attracted a loyal following to his Golden Gate restaurant. On this visit, I loved the Paracas mussel shooters (shot glasses containing lime juice, rocoto peppers, cilantro, onions and mussels); a spectacular mixed ceviche rocoto apiscado (octopus, calamari, shrimp and fish in a vibrant sauce tinged with Peruvian rocoto pepper and Peruvian brandy), tiradito (escolar in a soy-citrus sauce); fluffy green tamales with cilantro beef sauce; aji tarwi fish (corvina grilled atop eggplant aji amarillo soffrito and purple mashed potatoes) and corvina con tacu tacu (topped with red onions, tomatoes and aji amarillo on a fat cake of rice and lima beans). Lucama cheesecake was a heavenly ending. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2013 Osteria Tulia, 466 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 213-2073 Although it sits along tony Fifth Avenue, inside, Osteria Tulia is downright homey, simple and rustic, with food to match. Chef/owner Vincenzo Betulia spent more than a decade at Campiello on Third Street South and now heads up his own place thats filled with family members creating superb authentic fare. Caponata and fresh bread whets the appetite. House-made ricotta with walnuts and fresh herbs and meatballs napped in tomato sauce and garnished with pine nuts, currants and melted Parmesan were great starters. The roasted chicken was a thing of wonder, tender and succulent, served with faro, acorn squash and locally grown black leaf kale. House-made garganelli with braised lamb sugo and sheep cheese will make pasta lovers swoon. For dessert, do not miss the ricotta fritters with slow-cooked berries and whipped cream. As befits such a homey establishments, service was warm and nurturing. Full bar. Food Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2013 Restaurant Bonjour, 2009 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 566-2275 Where Mimis Cooking once stood, now Restaurant Bonjour does business. Bernard Massuger welcomes guests warmly, just as his predecessor, MarieMichelle Rey, did. He also offers some of the old favorites, and every dish we ordered was beautifully plated. I can recommend the endive and Roquefort salad with sesame vinaigrette and the smoked salmon with asparagus and crisp baguette slices. Bouillabaisse du Gulf features bay scallops, salmon, shrimp and mussels in a delicate saffron bouillon, accompanied by rouilleslathered bread. Roasted duckling came with an outstanding sundried cranberry sauce that was good enough to drink. Warm creme brulee served as an excellent finish to a satisfying meal. Beer and wine served.
