Cmdr. Zoah Scheneman promoted to commander, United States Navy, just before sunset. Now in his 23rd year of surface warfare experience, Cmdr. Scheneman stood in immaculate dress whites facing his friend and fellow officer, Cmdr. Neil Funtanilla, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate. Before about 50 friends and family members, Cmdr. Scheneman raised his right hand and reaffirmed the oath of an officer and a gentleman (by an act of Congress) to defend the country and the Constitution. Gentleman is a state-of-being the lanky Cmdr. Scheneman seems to inherit naturally, without question or ambiguity, regardless of what Congress decrees. His luminous 8-year-old daughter, Jacqueline, and his intrepid (I dont use that word vainly) 87-year-old grandfather, Chester, actually pinned the three broad gold bars with stylized oak leaf on his shoulders she on the left and he on the right. To those two, in particular, along with his late grandmother, Virginia, Cmdr. Scheneman attributes most of what he is and has done. Its not quite straight, I heard the elder Mr. Scheneman whisper, as he tried to arrange the right-shoulder insignia. Good enough for government work, boomed the commander. Then Mr. Scheneman, standing on the only leg he has remaining, placed his grandsons new cover (the Navy word for hat) on his head, complete with the leafy gold embellishment known as scrambled eggs affixed to the black brim. This is not about me, its about family and friends, the new commander said. Truer words were never spoken. Remarkably to me, the promotion ceremony was carried out at Jensens Twin Palm Marina on Captiva Island by the real Navy, not just the formal Navy (represented by Cmdr. Funtanilla, who was born and raised in Hawaii). It was a ceremony not only of formal command, but of love and acknowledgement. The real Navy is what you can see only when a tall, lean man wearing dress whites with a chest full of ribbons that represent his stellar service in several wars, on various ships and in think-tank commands that devise strategies to defend Europe and thus the United States with ballistic missiles a man now ultimately bound to command one of the newest ballistic missile destroyers in the Navy bends and reaches to embrace his glowing daughter and to hug his beaming grandfather. They are his real commanders. If that paragraph is too long for you, read it again. Or let me put it a different way: The real Navy also consists of the little girl and the old man and Cmdr. Schenemans aunts, Nancy and Lori, and his Uncle Larry, and his brothers, Laremy and Orion, and his father, Brent Scheneman, and his mother (whom I dont know) and all of their families not to mention the Jensen brothers (David, John and Jimmy), along with Capt. John Bunch, a fishing guide and former Marine for whom Semper Fi isnt just an abbreviated Latin lesson (he and the Jensens sponsor Operation Open Arms for returning and struggling war vets). The real Navy is you, too, no matter your politics. Without it, none of us would exist in the manner to which weve become accustomed. If that paragraph is also too long for you, read it again. The real Navy includes every one of the festive onlookers who gathered by happenstance to celebrate Cmdr. Schenemans promotion. They were a wild-looking outfit, led by the commander and his daughter, who marched all the way down Captiva Drive to Andy Rosse Lane, then turned left to the beach in time for sunset. A clarinetist leading the Marching Mullet Band, complete with banner, broke into a jazzy version of Anchors Aweigh, the Navy hymn. None were more joyful than Ivan Magana, accompanied by his wife a teacher at the same Naples middle school where he works as plant operator and their two teenage children. Mr. Magana, USN retired (20 years, at the rank of petty officer first class) is about half as high as Cmdr. Scheneman in physical stature. And just as tough. Born in Mexico, he came to the United States at age 9. Like Cmdr. Scheneman, he didnt have the most comfortable of childhoods. So he joined the Navy as a teenager, serving with Cmdr. Scheneman in various assignments. The day Petty Officer 1st Class Magana became an American citizen, he drove up to the courthouse in Norfolk, Va., where he was stationed, parked his car and went inside to swear the pledge of allegiance to the nation. When he came out, he discovered a parking ticket on his windshield. My first parking ticket! he told me Saturday night. I was so proud of that ticket. I thought, I get to pay my first parking ticket as an American! I am so lucky. Thats the real Navy, for you Chesters, Jacquelines, mine and yours. Thats Ivan Maganas Navy and Cmdr. Schenemans, too. m h e t i rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Single-payer prescription for what ails Obamacare We apologize for the inconvenience. The Marketplace is currently undergoing regularly scheduled maintenance and will be back up Monday 10/7/3013. You read it right, 3013. That was the message on the homepage of the New York state health insurance exchange website recently. Yes, the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, is going through difficult birth pains, as the marketplace websites went live only to crash. The government is not giving out numbers, but informed observers speculate that very few people have succeeded in signing up for any of the plans as of press time. The ACA rollout occurred as Republicans shut down the government in their attempt to defund Obamacare. But their strategy backfired. Had there been no shutdown, all of the attention would have been on the disastrous rollout. The fundamental issue, at the core of the health-care dispute, is typically ignored and goes unreported: The forprofit health-insurance industry in the United States is profoundly inefficient and costly, and a sane and sustainable alternative exists single-payer, otherwise known as expanded and improved Medicare for all. Just change the age of eligibility from 65 to zero. When Medicare was rolled out in 1966, it was rolled out in six months using index cards, Dr. Steffie Woolhandler told me Monday. So if you have a simple system, you do not have to have all this expense and all this complexity and work. Woolhandler is professor of public health at CUNY-Hunter College and a primary-care physician. She is a visiting professor at Harvard Medical School and the co-founder of Physicians for a National Health Program, or PNHP. PNHP is an organization with 17,000 physicians as members, advocating for a single-payer health-care system in the U.S. What is single-payer? Critics denounce it as socialized medicine, while ignoring that single-payer is already immensely popular in the U.S., as Medicare. A 2011 Harris poll found that Medicare enjoyed 88 percent support from American adults, followed closely by Social Security. Woolhandler explained that with a Medicare-for-all system, you would get a card the day youre born, and youd keep it your entire life. It would entitle you to medical care, all needed medical care, without co-payments, without deductibles. And because its such a simple system, like Social Security, there would be very low administrative expenses. We would save about $400 billion [per year]. Dr. Woolhandler went on, rather than thousands of different plans, tons of different co-payments, deductibles and restrictions one single-payer plan, which is what we need for all Americans to give the Americans really the choice they want ... not the choice between insurance company A or insurance company B. They want the choice of any doctor or hospital, like you get with traditional Medicare. Monthly premiums in most cases are expected to decrease with Obamacares health-exchange systems, which will enhance the transparency and ease of comparison for people shopping for a health-insurance policy. If and when the technical problems are eliminated from the online health insurance exchanges, and people can easily shop, there will likely be a huge number of people buying policies for the first time. The ACA offers important advances, which even single-payer advocates acknowledge: subsidies for low-income applicants will make insurance affordable for the first time. Medicaid expansion also will bring many poor people into the umbrella of coverage. Young people can stay on their parents insurance until the age of 26. People with so-called pre-existing conditions can no longer be denied insurance. While the ACA was deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court, the opinion gave states the option to opt out of the Medicaid expansion, which 26 states with Republican governors have done. A New York Times analysis of census data showed that up to 8 million poor people, mostly African-Americans and single mothers, and mostly in the Deep South, will be stranded without insurance, too poor to qualify for ACA subsidies, but stuck in a state that rejected Medicaid expansion. So, while partisan bickering (between members of Congress who have among the best health and benefits packages in the U.S.) has shut down the government, the populace of the United States is still straitjacketed into a system of expensive, for-profit health insurance. We pay twice as much per capita as other industrialized countries, and have poorer health and lower life expectancy. The economic logic of single-payer is inescapable. Whether Obamacare is a pathway to get there is uncertain. As Dr. Woolhandler summed up, Its only a road to single-payer if we fight for single-payer. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority, a New York Times best-seller.Refusing to negotiate is the new reasonableness. After years of agonized media commentary about the failure of key players in Washington to sit down and work out their differences, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid plans to win the fight over the government shutdown by rejecting all compromise, calling his opponents names and escaping blame in the press. It is a gambit available only to Democrats, who are presumed, almost by definition, to be free of any responsibility for a shutdown. For his part, President Barack Obama says he wont negotiate on the debt ceiling, so the current fight that Democrats wont negotiate over might roll into the next one they wont negotiate over, either. The basis of the refusal to talk is the notion that only an extremist with a bomb strapped to his chest would make a policy demand as government funding is about to run out. This argument depends on a short memory. Before Republicans lost the shutdown fights with Bill Clinton in the mid-1990s, putting an end to such brinkmanship for the duration, the policy dispute on the cusp of a shutdown was a routine feature of Washington. The fact-checker at the Washington Post, Glenn Kessler, has batted down Obamas contention that no one has ever tried to attach extraneous measures to a debt-ceiling measure before. As far back as 1973, Sens. Teddy Kennedy and Walter Mondale (aka nihilistic terrorists heedless of the damage they might cause to global financial markets) tried to attach campaign-finance reform to a debt-limit increase. Friction between the executive and legislative branches is built into our system, and it is the nature of politics that both sides will seek to exploit whatever leverage they have. Mr. Obama didnt hesitate to use the impending fiscal cliff at the end of 2012 to force as big a tax increase he could reasonably get. Nonetheless, the latest standoff is portrayed as the ruination of our politics. The real problem with the Republican position isnt that it is unprecedented or inherently out of bounds, but that it is unlikely to achieve much. To put it mildly, the Republican handling of the continuing resolution has lacked the forethought traditionally associated with successful strategy. Every indication is that Sen. Reid welcomed a shutdown on the assumption that Republicans could be made to pay the price. Its not a bad bet, but the risk to Democrats is that they make their eagerness to press their partisan advantage too blatant. If the shutdown is so ruinous, presumably they should want to talk about how to resolve it. If the temporary suspension of specific government functions the parks, services to veterans is so harmful, presumably they should welcome Republican bills to restore them. The Democratic opposition to negotiation wont be sustainable if the standoff continues. The president is willing nay, eager to negotiate with an Iran regime that has American blood on its hands, even though it is safe to assume that the Iranians arent acting in good faith. Republicans who oppose his healthcare law, though, are beyond the pale and not worth seriously engaging. And they are the unreasonable ones? Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Competitive fencing is one of five sports that have been played at every one of the modern Olympic Games. The sport has been in Naples since 2006 through the Naples Fencing Center, which caters to fencers at all skill levels, from beginner to competitor on the international stage. Jordan Griffith, a sophomore at Gulf Coast High School, falls into the latter category. Ranked in the top 20 U.S. fencers in the cadet category, Jordan represented the United States on the U.S.A. Cadet National Team recently in Budapest, Hungary, finishing in sixth place among 204 fencers from 27 countries. In December, he goes to the Cadet World Cup in Cabries, France. (Another Naples Fencing Center student, Schaeffer McHenry, was selected to the United States Air Force Academys Division I fencing team.) Jordan credits much of his success to his coach at the Naples Fencing Center, German Paz, who has been recognized for nearly three decades as an internationally renowned fencing coach in foil, epee and saber. He earned his bachelors degree in physical culture and sports, with an emphasis on fencing, from the University of Havana. Mr. Paz has been head coach at the Naples center since the summer of 2011. Jordan says he knew he wanted to fence ever since the first time he saw the sport in the 2008 Olympics. Fencing requires high levels of stamina, flexibility, speed and most of all, mental tactics, he says, adding he runs two miles a day at a fast pace and practices fencing drills and bouts six days a week. Private lessons with his coach prepare him for competitions. Jordan also has terrific family support. His parents, both dentists, have had their practice in general dentistry on the Paradise Coast since 2000. Jordan has two brothers: Johnny, a senior at GCHS; and Jack, a fourth grader at Vineyards Elementary School. In addition to fencing, Jordan plays JV lacrosse at his school, volunteers with Naples Equestrian Challenge, the Guadalupe Center of Immokalee (for holiday gift distribution) and Kids Against Hunger. He is also an altar server at Saint Agnes Catholic Church. He hopes to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy and to become a pilot and serve my country like my father did and fence for their Division I fencing team. My aspiration in life, he adds, is to become an engineer and be productive in life and in my community. 1892 Trade Center Way Naples, Fl 34109 Ph:(239)596-8282 Fax:(239)513-9055 www.alohanaples.comOur 25th Year in NaplesSalt System from $895.00 Weekly Pool Service from $70 a month Before After After Before We can help.Patrick M.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 Dan McNoughton, a 22-year-old computer science student at Valencia Community College in Orlando, did his research in advance, got online at 6:30 a.m. on Oct. 1 the day the American ship of state changed course and turned directly into the wind of the Affordable Care Act and within two hours had purchased a plan for $70 a month. That plan will give him all the health care he could possibly need, he says, with co-pays for doctors visits of only $20 after the first three free visits. I had no problem getting insurance, Mr. McNoughton recalls. I think its because everybody else was still asleep that first day.Its a significant step in the right direction for the Cape Coral native. His mother was diagnosed with cancer 12 years ago and became disabled, causing his father to quit a good job as a Publix manager to be able to take care of her and the kids, while working a much lower-paying job in sales. Four years ago, the elder Mr. McNoughton also got a cancer diagnosis; he died last year.Between his 12th and 22nd year, Mr. McNoughton and his younger sister went from middleor upper-middle-class living, as he describes it, to living in difficult circumstances after his parents were chopped down economically by health-care costs they couldnt afford, and defeated physically by disease. What Ive seen is that we (Americans) have good health care, but if you have something major and you dont have the income to sustain a very expensive healthcare plan and pay out-of-pocket, you have to make a choice: whether to keep the same standard of living and then just die, or whether to completely change your life and cash in your time, just to be able to live. And that doesnt seem like a well-thought-out or a fair system. Which is why the Affordable Care Act seems a lot better than nothing to Mr. McNaughton. Im kind of excited for this. It doesnt come close to solving half of the problems, but its a step in the right direction, he concludes.All the other birdsMr. McNoughton may be the early bird who got the worm, but that still leaves all the other birds. Although at least 1 million people qualify immediately on paper for insurance under the new federal program in Florida, only a few thousand at most have managed to enroll, so far. The exact numbers were not available at the end of last week from federal officials or their regional helpers contracted by the government. Those men and women struggled to sign up even a small minority of people eager to take advantage of the new program. Some of them, already trained to help as navigators, had not received official certifications because the federal government remained shut down, with key officials furloughed. Thus, they could not offer official aid to people calling in or visiting their offices for help, starting Oct. 1. Not only that, but Florida state officials banned them from working out of county health departments. Once again in American life, need and politics had collided head on, it seemed, leaving individuals to struggle along. The problems for working-class citizens seeking health care insurance last week amounted to two: First, the official government website for enrolling in private health-care plans (www.healthcare.gov) regularly and repeatedly broke down in mid-process. Second, officials answering the phone on help lines sometimes passed out conflicting information, or could not get through the online process themselves on behalf of would-be enrollees.Ive been desperate for it for three years, and I still dont have it, said Deborah Neuhaus, 61, who has probably spent 30 or more hours in recent days trying to get herself and her husband, Heinz, a naturalized American citizen from Germany, signed up. This would not happen there, where nobody pays more than about $500 a month, he said of his native land. Mr. Neuhaus, who owns a small limousine service in West Palm Beach, had a heart attack in 2004. The couple have struggled since, and Mrs. Neuhous, by vocation and desire a painter, was laid CONFUSING CARE LOVE IT OR HATE ITTHE FACTS ABOUT THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACTITH NO HELP FROM STATE OFFICIALDOM, AFFORDABLE health care under the federal program that opened a marketplace of competing insurance plans two weeks ago is off to a frequently frustrating start for the Sunshine States almost 4 million uninsured residents. Its frustrating for many others who will be affected by the requirement to get health insurance, as well about 15 million of them here. But not for all.W Where to nd answersVisit www.healthcare.org Call 1-800-318-2596 For an estimate of what a health plan could cost you and your family, visit http://kff.org/ interactive/subsidy-calculator If you currently have insurance through your business, coverage should remain the same for now. Your employer may have information whether or not your plan is changing. Essential coverageMost health insurance policies are now required to cover these areas: ambulatory patient services emergency services hospitalization maternity and newborn care mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment prescription drugs rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices laboratory services preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management pediatric services, including oral and vision care.The mandateEveryone is required to buy health insurance. If you dont buy insurance, youre subject to a ne, which may be less than the cost of insurance. However, the nes will increase in years to come. The nesYou cant go to jail or be prosecuted for failing to pay the ne. The IRS can, however, take the money out of your tax rebate if you have one coming to you. Youll also be responsible for medical bills if you need health care and arent insured. Heres what the nes will cost: In 2014, $95, or 1 percent of household income, whichever is greater. In 2015, it goes up to $325 or 2 percent of your household income, whichever is greater; In 2016, it goes up to $695 or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater; and... In 2017 and beyond, it goes up to $695 plus a cost-of-living adjustment, or 2.5 percent of your household income, whichever is greater.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 NEWS A9 off last month from a job shed held for 10 years just so she could keep health insurance for the couple. Now, theyre paying $1,485 a month, which she hopes to reduce to less than $300 a month under the new act. But the government computers broke down, the information shed just spent hours putting into a federal file disappeared into the ether, the officials answering the phone kept losing their places in a computer queue or giving her different information about drivers licenses and naturalization numbers for Heinz, and so on. And so on. And so on, she explained. Her advice to anybody else: Have persistence. Persistence is what you need, and you have to keep persisting until you get it solved. Dont give up. Ask for help. It has to be solved.On the front lines of officialdomBesides, two weeks is only two weeks theres plenty of time to work out the bugs in the system, officials say. We had such good momentum coming into this, and its sort of discouraging to see it drop off. But itll get fixed, says John Foley, a legal aid attorney and the navigator coordinator for Palm Beach and three other east-coast counties. These problems really took the wind out of our sails, admits his colleague, Vicki Tucci. We get ready, we have hundreds of phone calls coming into the office, we have people walking into the office, hundreds are trying to gather information or sit down and make an appointment, and there are delays. Weve had to reset appointments. The first person we sat down with couldnt get on the system. It took about eight working days before the Palm Beach navigators signed up even the first person, she says. That was happening elsewhere as well, but it didnt seem to discourage officials. On a scale of one to 10, my level of optimism about this is a 10, says Lynn Thorpe, the navigator coordinator for 10 counties on the west coast. She directs the work of 18 navigators both fulland part-time, some mobile and some stationed in offices, all working from a federal grant that will pay their salaries for a year. People knew this was coming, they had time to get educated, and I think the call center is working out well, she says. For people who are frustrated getting online themselves, they can call the 800 number, complete their eligibility and create an account that way, (1-800-3182596). No insurance plans in the new affordable care begin to provide coverage until Jan. 1, so individuals have until Dec. 15 to sign up for coverage that begins at the start of 2014, Ms. Thorpe says. And they have until mid-March to sign up for future coverage without being subjected to penalties if they dont, starting in 2014. Although nobody can be prosecuted for not signing up for health insurance, anybody who fails to sign up by next year can lose money in tax rebates, if they have those coming, according to federal rules. But bugs or no bugs in the new process, the train has left the station, says Tom Rice, president and CEO of Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Charlotte County, one of 160 in the Hospital Corporation of America chain based in Nashville. Its the biggest change in American life since Medicaid in the 1960s. I dont see us going back. When Medicaid started, it took several years to work out the bugs, Ive been told, and thats going to happen here. As for going forward, Dr. Allen Weiss, president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System in Naples, suggests, Were all in a learning curve right now our country, our state and our community. And were cautiously optimistic that this will be good for the country, the state and the community.VOICES:Laura Brennaman, nurse, teacher, health-care activist and doctoral candidate in health policy:I was at the Supreme Court both for the arguments and the decision. I spent the night on the sidewalk in front of the Supreme Court so I could see it. Its the biggest thing to affect health care in this country since Medicare and Medicaid in 1964 because it rede nes us as a people who look out for each other and for ourselves as a community and nation. So I was the second person in line, a line made up of mostly people that were being paid by lobbyists and others they were place holders, mostly homeless men, for somebody else who would show up early in the morning. They really needed health insurance themselves. They were being paid $6 an hour, with no food. It was shameful. Most of the people who came early in the morning to take their places were lobbyists or young people doing internships. But the person next to me was holding a place for Michele Bachmann. She came early, she was quite gracious when I introduced myself, and we talked about it. When I challenged her about why not give Affordable Care a try, she said the way it would be xed was through allowing insurances to cross state lines. I asked her how she thought that would work out for the banking industry. When Justice Roberts was reading the decision, at rst, it sounded as though the decision was going to go against the Affordable Care Act. And Bachmann was just grinning, really excited. But when that changed and he got to the part about allowing it under taxation, her face fell. It just froze, it was an absolute change. There were two dissents, but Michele Bachmann just got up and stormed out. Youre not allowed to move, to chew gum or make noise or shift around, but she just marched out.Jim Nathan, president and CEO, Lee Memorial Health System:Its very possible that Florida will not be in a better negotiating position with the federal government than today. The feds want Florida, a big swing state, to be in this program. So, you see other states Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana a number of other states, that have tried to gure out a different approach than just following Medicaid expansion guidelines. Theyre in the process of negotiating with the feds. I believe this is the time to do that. The money is being collected by the feds to pay for (uninsured people living below the poverty line), and we have an obligation to the state to collect this back about $51 billion over the next 10 years. If the money isnt here, everybody will suffer.John Foley, Navigator, Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County:There are (several) ways to do the exchanges, which is the marketplace: One is the state runs what the federal government is running in Florida. New York has one, California has one those are doing the same thing as the federal government, but theyre working. In Florida, we rejected everything. We could change our mind, but theyd have to call an emergency sessionthats unlikely. None of the groups oppose them. It appears to be a tea-party kind of thing. Even Gov. Scott decided to accept it. One positive thing: you hear these horrible stories, like about somebody with cancer and doing a fundraiser on Facebook now, its going to be easier to give them a couple thousand dollars and get them a policy on the marketplace. I can see charities for people who dont have insurance and cant afford the out-of-pocket expense. Who wouldnt want to do that?Jim Roach, Democrat turned Republican and former candidate for U.S. representative:The House in Florida under (speaker) Will Weatherford said, No, we wont do it. One million uninsured Floridians could be covered, but they decided they were only going to cover 100,000 of them, and the rest can go get a job.So Medicaid expansion in Florida dies. So you have exchanges and premiums for people who make a reasonable amount of money, but people under the poverty level, they get nothing. And that will cost more. The Southwest Florida Chamber of Commerce, Lee Memorial Health System and lots of other businesses have rallied against Tallahassee. Lee County alone stands to lose $220 million a year out of the economy, because the House of Florida doesnt want to take our money back from the federal government. SEE CARE, A10 Dr. Weiss sees Affordable Health Care as a work in progress. This will help a million people and there are three million others. But you have to start somewhere. Here is something my parents used to say: Dont let perfect get in the way of good.Who gets helpClearly, no perfect exists in the new system, but there may be plenty of good for those who qualify, which is reason enough to move forward aggressively, many insist. The two synonymous terms now being used in affordable care the exchanges and the marketplace describe where consumers can go to shop for competing health insurance plans. Depending on their locations in Florida, people can generally choose from about 60 to more than 100 options. Although those plans are up for sale to anybody, theyre subsidized for individuals and families whose incomes fall between 100 and 400 percent of the socalled federal poverty level, which probably describes most people who work in the service industries, in common labor jobs, or in the midto lower strata of white-collar jobs. The poverty level this year amounts to just less than $11,500 for a single person, plus another $4,000 or so for each additional family member. (For a family of four, the federal poverty level is defined as $23,550.) Individuals could earn up to about $46,000 (400 percent of the poverty level), or $94,200 for a family of four, and benefit significantly by getting tax credits or subsidies to help them pay for any plan they choose. Under the new Affordable Care Act, those struggling at or near the federal poverty level people typically uninsured who wait to solve medical problems until extremely expensive emergency care is required will pay little for health insurance. And nobody at any income range in America should have to pay any more than 9.5 percent of his or her annual adjusted gross income for health care.Who gets hurt at the bottomIf that goal represents the top of the mountain of success, the effort to reach it remains at sea level in Florida, which has the second-highest number of uninsured citizens in the nation, behind California. There, state leaders opted to set up their own program and added millions to federal dollars that flowed in to help for training and preparation prior to Oct. 1 an open-armed embrace of a federal law under state terms that has proven remarkably successful in the first two weeks, according to news reports. By contrast, Floridas elected officials led by Gov. Rick Scott rejected affordable care outright. Passed into law in 2010 then challenged after the fact, Affordable Care was upheld as constitutional by the Supreme Court last year, after which Gov. Scott tepidly agreed that it should be accepted. But the Florida House of Representatives, guided by 34-year-old Panama City businessman and Republican House Speaker Will Weatherford, has chosen to reject both the federal plan for affordable care and a huge cache of Medicaid money aimed at those who live below the federal poverty level another million people in Florida. That program is called Medicaid expansion, and its absence in Florida creates a huge and costly irony. Now, a person making between $11,500 and about $15,000 per year can buy health insurance that requires an $80 co-pay for a doctors visit, but costs exactly nothing per month. But a Floridian making below that poverty level, say about $11,000, qualifies for no subsidy help at all, as it now stands, and will end up having to pay $2,785 per year for health insurance, estimates show. But that almost-insolvent soul will likely get care if he or she goes to an emergency room. Then, its everybody else who will get hurt. Unless Floridas legislative leaders choose to reverse their decision and embrace Medicaid expansion, they will give up $51 billion in federal money over the next 10 years money coming in large part from taxes paid by Floridians, anyway, according to hospital officials, business leaders and politicians from both parties who hope to accept the federal help.Who gets hurt at the topNot only that, but unless the politicians call an emergency legislative session before the end of this year if, for example, they wait until spring to negotiate a state program that accepts Medicaid expansion they will probably sacrifice more than $1 billion, and perhaps as much as $5 billion right off the bat, suggests Jim Nathan, president and CEO of Lee Memorial Health System. Then everybody else suffers, not just the ones below the poverty level. Its not them, the million uninsured people that Medicaid expansion would have provided coverage for, its the other 18 million Floridians who will get hurt, Mr. Nathan says. Heres why: There are four million uninsured people in the state of Florida. A million will be covered by exchanges that went on the market. And another million were to be covered by the expansion of Medicaid. In effect, Florida taxpayers will pay for that second million twice first by paying taxes to the federal government

Of course, theres one other possibility that could result from the Legislatures rejection of Medicaid expansion, suggests Mr. Nathan: poorer health care for everyone, not just the uninsured. Everybody ends up suffering by not bringing the money back, he explains. Its not like there are separate doors for the uninsured, the minimally insured, those on Medicaid and Medicare, the commercially insured and so on no. Everybody goes in the same door. So if the money isnt here, everything suffers, for everyone. The programs, services, facilities, staffing all of that will suffer. Then you have the fact that the money, which is creating jobs, wont be here to do that, so people will look to states that do have money. Which means were reducing our recruitment and retention capabilities. Oh, and one other thing: Were also reducing our bond rating for borrowing. Need a new hospital wing or an improvement to a cancer center? You can likely forget it under this strategy, he says.The growing recognition of needBusinesses throughout Florida are recognizing the effects of the rejection of Medicaid expansion, too. In a letter to state Republican legislators who voted to reject the federal help, David Miller, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Florida, put his concerns this way: Our members are concerned about Floridas potential loss of $51 billion in federal dollars This is money that the taxpayers of Florida have already sent to Washington, and this money will go to other states if we do not find a solution. Current federal Medicare laws and regulations will reduce the reimbursement to Lee Memorial Health System alone by $476 million over the next 10 years. Nearly halfa-billion dollars is a staggering amount of lost revenue for services that must still be provided to our residents and visitors. We must find solutions so we can continue to provide essential health services for our community needs, Mr. Miller said. While such pleas are increasing in volume and number, the Republican-led Florida House, in particular, has been slow to respond, even in a state where almost one out of four are uninsured. Medicaid has been proven to be one of the worst forms of insurance you can get in America, Rep. Weatherford said in a widely quoted public statement last month but not for him and his family. A Medicaid program helped his parents pay a figure cited at $100,000 to care for his late brother, Peter, who died of cancer. That policy stance, especially in the midst of a federal government shutdown, has garnered the attention of elected leaders on Capitol Hill, including U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, a District 21 Democrat based in Palm Beach, who blames Gov. Scott for not pushing the Legislature to expand Medicaid. Hes the leader in the state, and hes done nothing, he says. Whats so obvious to me is that Medicaid expansion is a no-brainer to everyone involved in Florida, except our governor and our Legislature. It has support from the business community, the medical community, from doctors and hospitals, from local officials, from mental-health advocates from everybody else. By refusing to extend Medicaid to a million low-wage workers, the governor and the Legislature are shortchanging Florida taxpayers.The view from the other sideThats not how everybody sees it, however especially not U.S. Rep. Trey Radel, a District 19 Republican elected to Congress last year with strong support from tea party advocates who also abhor the Affordable Care Act.In particular, Rep. Radel cited as victims of the new laws people who make more than 400 percent of the federal poverty level thus, those with incomes of more than about $96,000 for a family of four.What we have seen from the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is higher premiums and fewer choices for you and your family, he said in comments e-mailed from his press secretary, Amanda Nuez. Right now, major employers in Southwest Florida are dropping health coverage because of the high cost, all while the American public is living under the threat of a fine if they dont buy what the government tells them to buy. This law is a mess for everyone involved. In the case of Gary Carico, who manages a window tinting shop in Lee County, sticking with the private plan he and his children are covered by will mean paying a huge increase in monthly fees from $297 to $571 (Mr. Carico is the husband of a Florida Weekly employee). So he will have to shop around, he says. For Dan Vonderheide, a former resident of Fort Myers who now owns a website production company based in Louisville, Ky., a massive jump in insurance rates for the policy hes maintained to date put the lie to promises made by President Obama about the new health care. My plan for my family is more than doubling, he said last week. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan, doesnt mean much. Those words are a close paraphrase of a promise President Obama made starting in 2009. Few or none understand just where the bottom line lies for such individuals, or for businesses, which are subject to a wide range of new obligations coming into effect between next year and 2017, depending in part on their size. And its difficult to understand why insurance rates for many working people who are not defined as poor or living at up to 400 percent of poverty will jump suddenly. Even Jim Roach, who ran for Congress as a Democrat against Rep. Radel last year in large part by promoting the Affordable Care Act, which he had read and studied through its entire 906 pages is baffled by rising insurance rates. I dont know why the insurance companies are raising rates on insurance for some large corporations, or why some corporations are choosing to change the cost share with their employees, he says. But one thing is certain in his mind: It does not have anything to do with the poverty level or if you make more than 400 percent of it. It also does not appear to be blanket across the board. For businesses that employ fewer than 50 people, the so-called SHOP exchange (an acronym for the Small Business Health Options Program) is lowering the price they will pay to help cover their employees, he adds. As for the big corporations, From what I have heard, there has been very little change to the big corporate insurance costs since their actuarial costs have not changed, he notes. Mr. Roach no longer favors the Democrats, but he continues to see some merit in the Affordable Care Act. Since the 2012 election, he has joined the Republican party. That doesnt mean he agrees with Rep. Radel, however. I have heard nothing but confusion and uncertainty coming from hospitals and health professionals as to how this law is going to work, what they should be prepared for and how much it is going to cost, says Rep. Radel, who would not offer an opinion about Medicaid expansion in Florida. That is a decision for the Florida Legislature and the governor, he observes. As for the federal government shutdown that deeply affected the first two weeks of Affordable Care in Florida, Rep. Radel says this: I have been working with my colleagues in the House through late nights and weekends to get the government open. We have voted 16 times to open all or parts of the government. All we are asking for is a delay of the Obamacare fine, known as the individual mandate, on you and your family. The president already gave businesses and corporations a waiver from the rules for a full year. He should do the same for taxpaying Americans.How it works in briefWhatever the outcome of the political shoot out, almost a million working individuals in the Sunshine State who qualify for the inexpensive, subsidized new rates will get up this week without insurance. For those who arent sure whats happening, several experts recommend first exploring a private website such as the one maintained by the Kaiser Family Foundation: www.KFF.org/interactive/ subsidy-calculator. Upon entering the relevant information where you live, your age, your income the calculator gives you an accurate sense of what you will pay in the federal program. If youve ever shopped for individual insurance before, you know its a nightmare, says Laura Brennaman, a longtime emergency-room nurse, now teacher and health-care activist who lives on Floridas west coast, and is coincidentally earning a doctorate in nursing and health policy at the University of New Mexico. This will change all that, but it is not for people over 65, who qualify for Medicare, or for those (who are comfortably situated in life). On the new exchange, she says, the process is simplified and made transparent, so shoppers can compare one health plan to another, which used to be difficult if not impossible to do with clarity. So there are four levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum, she explains.Any plan labeled as one of those metals, for any income level, will do roughly the same thing: The bronze pays 60 percent, the silver pays 70 percent, the gold pays 80 percent, and the platinum pays 90 percent.People who expect to see a doctor very little, for example young people, people in excellent health, people who dont smoke or drink excessively may choose one plan with a higher co-pay, but people who may need to see the doctor several or many times might choose a plan with a low co-pay. The closer you are to the federal poverty level, the cheaper it is only 2 percent of your annual income for those earning up to 133 percent of the poverty level, for example. There are many variations, Mrs. Brennaman says, but they will ultimately help both the insured, and those the rest of us who pay for all the medical costs of the uninsured or underinsured in their own policies. So if you make 100 to 150 percent of the poverty level, your premium will not exceed 4 percent, but the actuarial of that silver plan, for example, will be increased from 80 percent to 94 percent it would mean youre getting Cadillac insurance for Chevy prices. And in the end, it will also mean this: People will not go bankrupt anymore over medical expenses. And other people will not have to cover the costs after they go bankrupt. As it turns out, thats a 20th century model in America that appears to be coming slowly and grudgingly to an end. (Florida Weekly Editor Osvaldo Padilla contributed to this report.)

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 NEWS A11 Oil production in South Florida made a moderate comeback in recent years as higher petroleum prices, an improving economy and new drilling methods made drilling feasible. In April, however, when a Texas company applied to drill an oil well close to a residential neighborhood in Collier County, residents protested. Those protests have turned into a larger movement to stop oil drilling here and throughout the state. One local group, Preserve Our Paradise, has applied for nonprofit status and hired an attorney to fight the drilling. The groups president, Joe Mul, is a former AT&T regional director who lives in Golden Gate Estates, the semirural neighborhood near where Texasbased Dan A. Hughes Co. has been trying to start drilling for the last five months. Mr. Mul has put his consulting business on hold to devote his attention to stopping oil production near Golden Gate and throughout the state. So far he and others have successfully mired in legal objections the Hughes Co. application to drill even a preliminary exploratory well (intended only to find out if theres sufficient oil there to extract). A legal objection filed Oct. 11 that Hughes has an incomplete emergency plan for residents if there were to be a leak at the well site will take roughly three to 12 months to sort out, says Ralf Brookes, the Cape Coral attorney retained by Preserve Our Paradise. After a formal administrative hearing reviewing the safety measures described in Hughes state permit application, a judge will have to OK it. And even then, Mr. Brookes adds, further objections beyond this initial one could be made if plans to drill proceed. We have other issues, he says. There are going to be other permits required if they actually go into production. Meanwhile, Mr. Mul and others maintain that the local benefits of oil production in general, including some job creation and tax revenue, do not outweigh the environmental risks to wildlife, water quality and the delicate limestone aquifer underlying South Florida. To us, its no longer about this one well (in Golden Gate). Its about drilling in general in Southwest Florida and Florida, Mr. Mul says. Its about stopping the drilling. We see this as evil evil in the sense that what theyre doing is based on greed. And Im a capitalist at heart. I believe in making money, but I dont believe in doing it at the expense of the health, safety and well-being of people and the environment.Clean recordIn 70 years of oil production, inland oil companies in South Florida have a clean safety and environmental record. There have been no gas leaks or major spills. Mr. Mul points out that while that might be true, extraction methods have also changed. It used to be that wells were drilled straight down. The relatively new horizontal drilling method retrofits many of those old wells. It allows pipes roughly two miles underground to radiate from the vertical well like spokes to capture more oil. Those pipes could harm the limestone aquifer and even create sinkholes, he suggests. But Ed Garrett, a geologist and administrator of the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Oil and Gas office, says the horizontal pipes deep underground have less of an environmental impact than older methods and can recover oil that in the old days would have taken many vertical wells. As to whether horizontal wells could create sinkholes, The answer is no, he says. Other groups that monitor and advocate for a safe panther habitat arent especially concerned about coexisting with oil companies. Kevin Godsea, manager at Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, told Florida Weekly this summer that the refuge has long monitored oil drilling, but there hasnt been serious cause for environmental concern. Nancy Payton of the Florida Wildlife Federation in Naples says, There are lots of instances of panthers coexisting very well with these types of operations. Weve monitored out in the Big Cypress and havent noticed an issue.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 A MCQUAID MARKETING PRODUCTION FOR SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES CONTACT 239-331-7371Collier Resources Co. the oil management wing of some of the areas most venerable landowners, Barron Collier Companies and Collier Enterprises. The Collier family owns the mineral rights on more than 800,000 acres in the region and leases large swaths to oil companies, including Hughes, which is still trying to drill an exploratory well in a field near the end of Golden Gate Estates. Representatives of Hughes and Collier Resources did not respond to calls seeking comment. In a recent letter to the media, Preserve Our Paradise said that the Collier family of companies is posing unconscionable risks by leasing the land to Hughes and other oil companies. The Florida DEP regulates oil and mineral production and issues permits to begin drilling, but county governments also can restrict how companies like Hughes then go about producing it, Mr. Brookes said. Preserve Our Paradise hopes to convince Collier officials, and possibly those of other counties in the state, to adopt local ordinances that restrict drilling. Historically, Collier County has approved of it. There was a lot of language inserted in the comprehensive plan in Collier County that allows exploration and oil drilling in sensitive areas in Collier County, Mr. Brookes says. Floridas moderate productionMr. Mul says that when looked at in a broader context, oil production doesnt make sense in a region that produces a relatively small amount compared to other states. Sunniland Trend, an area that stretches from Fort Myers to Miami, is one of the most prominent old Florida oil fields. Humble Oil and Refining Co. (now Exxon) discovered the states first productive well in the area in 1943. Its part of the larger South Florida Basin, which includes most of the southern part of the peninsula as far north as Lake Okeechobee and as far south as the Keys and also just off the western and southern shores. Floridas peak production of 48 million barrels of oil a year in 1978 has declined precipitously ever since. And even that peak year was only about oneeighth of Texas production last year. In 2012, Florida produced 2.2 million barrels of oil, DEP reports show. Oil drilling will contribute to global climate change, argues Karen Dwyer, a Naples resident who has joined in the protests, including organizing street demonstrations, and formed her own group to stop the drilling, called Stonecrab Alliance. We dont think it should be done in South Florida. Not with our geology, our lime rock, our national and state parks. This area is just too sensitive. It shouldnt be drilled. We just dont want it anymore. She adds, Tourism is far more important than the oil industry down here. Preserve Our Paradise ultimately hopes to permanently stop the Hughes well from being drilled near Golden Gate and convince Collier officials to restrict drilling, Mr. Mul says. But, he adds, Its no longer about one well. Its about stopping the horizontal drilling, the damage to the aquifer and the native habitat.

One lucky inventor will win prizes to help their business, ranging from assistance from experts on advertising to logo design, one-onone private consultations and a variety of items to help enhance their business, says event creator, Tiffany McQuaid. Ms. McQuaid is the broker/owner of McQuaid & Company Real Estate Services and McQuaid Marketing and Promotions, both located in Naples. Tales from a Shark is a collaborative effort with her marketing and promotions staff, she says. We saw a need to be able to bring a speaker to town that is more professionally oriented and geared toward businesses and business owners that would maybe help them or inspire them to look into different angles for their business or give them a little bit of a boost before season, she adds. The Haupts quest to pitch their business at Tales from a Shark can be attributed to kismet, along with faithful Shark Tank viewing. Their Monkey Bread Factory in Tin City is the home of Mon Key Buns cinnamon caramel pull-apart buns in a variety of flavors. The shop also features gourmet hand-dipped apples, assorted fudges and its multi-variety Island Gold toffee puff-corn. Ms. Walsh-Haupt says the crucial moment occurred while she and her husband were watching Shark Tank on TV and discussing how to market their Island Gold offerings to retailers. We looked at each other and said, Shes (Ms. Corcoran) the one we need, Ms. Walsh-Haupt says. Were familiar with her history, were a fan of her success, and she has worked with other food (related) start-ups other food companies and helped them grow. Not only that, she adds, At least every other day, somebody stops in the store and says we need to be on Shark Tank. It would be a great thing for a small business. The couple next Googled Ms. Corcorans name and found that their timing was spot-on. The upcoming Tales from a Shark was one of the first entries they saw. It was one of those youre-not-goingto-believe-this moments, Ms. WalshHaupt says. There was a reason why we were watching this For a small momand-pop store like this, our dreams are so big, and to partner with somebody like this not just with the financial backing but with the experience to help a small business grow there wasnt a chance we werent going to go for it. Ms. McQuaid says Ms. Corcoran has not only been a professional inspiration for years, but has also provided guidance that helped boost the fortunes of her real estate business through e-mail correspondence and a one-on-one meeting last year. Shes been very instrumental in the success that weve had, Ms. McQuaid says. Shes awesome. Shes really awesome. Bayfront Naples will be the scene for Tales from a Shark from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7.

Josh is among one in four in Collier County who suffer from a mental illness. One in nine of us will experience some form of substance abuse. When a family member, friend or coworker battles a mental health or substance abuse problem, we suffer with them. Thankfully, David Lawrence Center is here for our community. A not-for-prot organization founded and still governed by community leaders, the David Lawrence Center is the behavioral health component of our communitys healthcare network. A true local resource, it relies on donations, fees and grants to invest in the health, safety and wellbeing of our community. When you or someone you love needs help, call on the highly compassionate, committed and competent professionals of the David Lawrence Center to inspire you to move beyond the crisis towards life-changing wellness. Mental health is a community issue. Fortunately, theres a community solution. His Mind is Our Concern. Joshs teachers always complained he couldnt sit still, picked ghts, deed authority and didnt follow directions. It got worse when he discovered marijuana and wouldnt take his medications. This chemical irregularity led to violent outbursts, legal troubles and depression. Discipline only incited threatening behavior that caused him to be brought to the Crisis Stabilization Unit. His family doubted he would ever graduate. But with the help of the Education Day Treatment Program a unique partnership with DLC and the Public Schools that helps kids with learning disabilities and behavioral health problems he thrived on the low class size, self-paced learning model and team effort between the teachers, therapists and family. As the rst graduate, hes armed with feelings of pride and the pursuit of his dreams begins today.DavidLawrenceCenter.org NAPLES 239-455-8500 IMMOKALEE 239-657-4434 FOR MENTAL WELLNESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 NEWS A17 Collier Family Farms hosts fall festCollier Family Farms re-opens for the new growing season and hosts a Farm Fall Fest from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at its farm stand in Ave Maria.

This secret literally has the power to change your life forever. In fact, its the key to getting you in the best shape of your life. My goal is to help people look and feel better than they ever have before. And Iron Tribe Fitness is by far the most effective system for helping people do just that. Just take a look at the picture above...those results are typical! In those pictures, youll see just a few of the shocking transformations from our members of Iron Tribe in Birmingham, AL. Take, for example, Chuck Andrews who transformed his body from Pillsbury Dough Boy to Tarzan in only a few short months. Chuck is not alone. Its because of these kinds of results that Iron Tribe -which started as hobby with 12 friends in a 400 square foot garage -has exploded into a national franchise. However, if you want these kind of results, you need to act right now before this opportunity passes by. Why the urgency? Because Iron Tribe Fitness only accepts 300 members per location. Not 301. This cap on our membership develops a tight and exclusive community of friends. Indeed, a Tribe. We pride ourselves on being much more than a gym. We are a Tribe of athletes. To show you Im serious, heres an offer you simply cant refuse: If youll give me just 120 days, youll get in the best shape of your life, or Ill refund 100% of your investment. Not only that, Ill also buy you the latest release of P90X for wasting your time. Thats how confident I am youll love being a part of the Tribe! But just like all other Iron Tribe locations ... these 300 membership slots will sell out! Dont get put on a waiting list.

How to help a victim of abuseRegardless of whether the abuse is physical, verbal, sexual, financial and/ or emotional, most victims will not offer up the fact that they are being abused. If you suspect someone you care about is being abused, start a conversation by asking: Does your partner/caregiver make you feel afraid or controlled? What happens when you disagree with each other? Does he put you down, threaten or hurt you? If you know someone is being abused, ask her to make sure her children know how and when to dial 911. Let her keep extra keys and her escape bag at your house or office. Dont blame her; there are numerous reasons why a victim might stay in an abusive situation. Be there when she needs you. Help with childcare, transportation, a place to stay, money but do not risk your own safety. Give her this web address: www.naplesshelter.org. And urge her to call this number: 7751101 (TTY, 775-4265). This is the Shelters 24-hour, confidential hot line. Let her know that trained counselors can help her devise a safety plan.

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive and often repeated behavior that leaves its victims feeling powerless. It takes on many forms including name-calling, social exclusion and physical attacks. In todays technologically savvy society, bullies can even take to text-messaging and social networking sites to harass their target. CCSO offers several tools that teachers, family and students can use to help stop bullying. Several educational videos that focus on the general nature of bullying, the differences between boy and girl bullying and cyber-bullying can be viewed at www.ccso.tv. In addition, CCSO, Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers and Collier County Public Schools have partnered to provide a text-messaging line where anyone can report bullying and remain anonymous. Using the keywords DNTH8 (dont hate), anyone wishing to report bullying can text a tip to 274637 (c-r-i-me-s). The software provider, TipSoft, encrypts the text message and routes it through several secure severs, protecting the tipsters identity. The tip will come in through Crime Stoppers, whose hotline is monitored around the clock, and then be sent immediately to CCSO. Once CCSO receives the tip it will be evaluated to determine the most appropriate course of action. Potential actions include everything from contacting the alleged bully and victim and their respective parents, to informing the school guidance counselor, principal and Youth Relations deputy if the alleged bullying is taking place at school. The texting service is not for acts of bullying in progress, which should be reported by calling 911 or CCSOs non-emergency line at 252-9300, depending on the seriousness of the act. CCSO Youth Relations Bureau deputies are assigned to all public schools in Collier County to serve as a law enforcement presence to mentor students and deter crime, including bullying. In addition, teachers and deputies undergo training to recognize and address instances of bullying. Deputies also make sure students are aware that they can report crime anonymously and be eligible for an award by calling Student Crime Stoppers at (800) 780-8477. Make sure car seats are safeThe Collier County Sheriffs Office can help ensure your child is safely secured in your vehicle(s) through its free car seat inspection service. Florida law requires parents to use a child restraint system. If children are not properly restrained while traveling in a vehicle, they could easily be injured in a collision or any other emergency situation.

Seven physicians nominated for annual NCH awardThe NCH Healthcare Foundation announces seven nominees for 2013 Physician of the Year. Sponsored by Herb and Mary Ehlers, the award recognizes individuals for going above and beyond professional responsibilities to bring health care in the community to a higher level. This years honorees Drs. Alberto De La Rivaherrera, emergency medicine specialist; Paul Jones, family physician; Deborah Lopez, pediatric critical care; Kenneth Plunkitt, cardiac electrophysiologist; Carlos Quintero, hospitalist; Dennis Stapleton, cardiothoracic surgeon; and Justin Warner, general surgeon were www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA26 NEWS WEEK OF CURRENT DATE Peanut butter, no jellyResearch shows pantry staple can help diagnose Alzheimers THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA A dollop of peanut butter and a ruler can be used to confirm a diagnosis of early stage Alzheimers disease, University of Florida Health researchers have found. Jennifer Stamps, a graduate student in the UF Mc Knight Brain Institute Center for Smell and Taste, and her colleagues reported the findings of a small pilot study in the Journal of the Neurological Sciences. Ms. Stamps came up with the idea of using peanut butter to test for smell sensitivity while she was working with Kenneth Heilman, the James E. Rooks distinguished professor of neurology and health psychology in the UF College of Medicines department of neurology. She noticed while shadowing in Dr. Heilmans clinic that patients were not tested for their sense of smell. The ability to smell is associated with the first cranial nerve and is often one of the first things to be affected in cognitive decline. Ms. Stamps also had been working in the laboratory of Linda Bartoshuk, the William P. Bushnell presidentially endowed professor in the College of Dentistrys department of community dentistry and behavioral sciences and director of human research in the Center for Smell and Taste. Dr. Heilman said, If you can come up with something quick and inexpensive, we can do it, Ms. Stamps says. She thought of peanut butter because, she adds, it is a pure odorant that is only detected by the olfactory nerve and is easy to access. Patients who were coming to the clinic for testing also sat down with a clinician, 14 grams of peanut butter (about 1 tablespoon) and a metric ruler. The patient closed his or her eyes and mouth and blocked one nostril. The clinician opened the peanut butter container and held the ruler next to the open nostril while the patient breathed normally. The clinician then moved the peanut butter up the ruler one centimeter at a time during the patients exhale until the person could detect an odor. The distance was recorded and, after a 90-second delay, the procedure repeated on the other nostril. The clinicians running the test did not know the patients diagnoses, which were not usually confirmed until weeks after the initial clinical testing. HEALTHY LIVING SEE PHYSICIANS, A27 SEE ALZHEIMERS, A27 THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA / COURTESY PHOTOUniversity of Florida researcher Jennifer Stamps demonstrates the peanut butter test. Researchers have found that patients in the early stages of Alzheimers disease have an asymmetry in their ability to detect smells, with the left nostril becoming weaker than the right.

Physicians are the cornerstone of every community, and it is important that we recognize their role in helping our residents live longer, healthier, happier lives, says Allen Weiss, M.D., president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. The recipient of the award will be announced at the 2013 NCH Hospital Ball taking place Saturday, Oct. 26, at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort. All proceeds of this years gala are designated for the expansion of the Pediatric Emergency Department at the NCH campus in North Naples. Years ago, NCH treated only low acuity pediatric emergency patients such as minor colds and ankle sprains, says Dr. Pia Myers, pediatric emergency department physician. Now we are able to treat more complex medical illnesses. We are proud to be part of this new initiative that will allow us to continue to increase the level of service that we can offer the children in our community. Tickets to the 2013 NCH Hospital Ball are $500 per person and can be purrchased at www.nchmd.org/ hospitalball. For the first time in its 55 years, the ball has two presenting sponsors this year: TeamHealth and DeAngelis Diamond Healthcare Group.

For more information, call Miriam Ross at the NCH Healthcare System Foundation at 624-2000 or e-mail foundation@nchmd.org. Addiction discussion will focus on treatment versus incarcerationHazelden addiction treatment center presents a free symposium, Motivating Change: Addiction Treatment versus Incarceration, from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, at Hodges University. The discussion will focus on the powerful relationship between addiction, mental health and criminal behavior as well as the rationale for addiction treatment versus incarceration. The panel of experts from the legal system and from the field of addiction treatment will include: Christine Grieder, circuit judge of Collier County; Gerald Berry, founding member of the law firm of Berry, Day & McFee; Janeice Martin, Collier County court judge; David Schimmel, CEO of the David Lawrence Center; and Patrick Krill, director of Hazeldens legal professionals program in Center City, Minn. Brenda Iliff, executive director of Hazelden in Naples will moderate. Hodges University is located at 2655 Northbrooke Drive in Naples. The symposium will take place in the main auditorium. For more information, call 659-2351 or e-mail mcampbell@ hazelden.org. The scientists found that patients in the ear l y stag es of Alzheimers disease had a dramatic difference in detecting odor between the left and right nostril; the left nostril was impaired and did not detect the smell until the peanut butter was an average of 10 centimeters closer to the nose than the right nostril had made the detection in patients with Alzheimers disease. This was not the case in patients with other kinds of dementia; instead, these patients had either no differences in odor detection between nostrils or the right nostril was worse at detecting odor than the left one. Of the 24 patients tested who had mild cognitive impairment, which sometimes signals Alzheimers disease and sometimes turns out to be something else, about 10 patients showed a left nostril impairment and 14 patients did not. The researchers said more studies must be conducted to fully understand the implications.The future of peanut butterAt the moment, we can use this test to confirm diagnosis, Ms. Stamps says. But we plan to study patients with mild cognitive impairment to see if this test might be used to predict which patients are going to get Alzheimers disease. Ms. Stamps and Dr. Heilman point out that this test could be used by clinics that dont have access to the personnel or equipment to run other, more elaborate tests required for a specific diagnosis, which can lead to targeted treatment. At UF Health, the peanut b utter test will be one more tool to add to a full suite of clinical tests for neurological function in patients with memory disorders. One of the first places in the brain to degenerate in people with Alzheimers disease is the front part of the temporal lobe that evolved from the smell system, and this portion of the brain is involved in forming new memories. We see people with all kinds of memory disorders, Dr. Heilman says. Many tests to confirm a diagnosis of Alzheimers disease or other dementias can be time-consuming, costly or invasive. This can become an important part of the evaluation process. ALZHEIMERSFrom page 26

The women first learned about Project Hope through the Healthcare Networks affiliation with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Southwest Florida. The project provides volunteers with the materials to create handcrafted inspirational tote bags for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer. Once completed, the bags are filled with information and comforting items to let recipients know they are not alone in their new journey. According to Karen Smith, medical operations manager for the Healthcare Network in Naples, Project Hope volunteers can create the bags at home, but the group decided to have an oldfashioned sewing bee. One of our volunteers is a breast cancer survivor, so this project was especially close to her heart, Ms. Smith says. Its more fun to do things together, and since sewing machines arent as common as they used to be, this was an opportunity for those of us who have them to share our skills with others. Veteran seamstress and breast cancer survivor Mary Ann Sloan acted as group instructor, navigating the sewing pattern instructions to ensure all the bags were put together correctly. Shirley Garypie provided volunteers with lunch. The bags turned out beautifully and the messages on them are so inspirational, Ms. Smith says. Being diagnosed with breast cancer is debilitating for any woman, but it is especially difficult for our patients, most of whom are already struggling with financial and social issues. When mom is sick, it affects the whole family. Annually, the Healthcare Network provides primary care for 36,000 people in Southwest Florida (25,000 are children) at 13 medical and dental service locations throughout Collier County, including the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. Kaydee Tuff is the communications-marketing coordinator for the Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA30 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 PET TALESHome aloneSeparation anxiety: Its well-known among dogs, but cats suffer it, too. BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhen you come home from work, is it to find that your cat has peed on the bed, yowled so desolately all day that the neighbors inquire a little nervously about her well-being, or scratched to ribbons the chair that you just had reupholstered with that expensive fabric? Dont chalk it up to spite. Your cat may be suffering from a condition that almost no one associates with the feline species: separation anxiety. Separation anxiety is more commonly associated with dogs, but despite their reputation for independence, cats can develop it as well, especially if they were orphaned as kittens or weaned too early. These cats may express their anxiety in destructive ways, such as scratching furniture. Older cats can develop separation anxiety in the wake of a divorce or death in the family. They are often more attached to people than they are given credit for, and cats who lose owners this way may pace and cry in search of them. Other signs of separation anxiety include depression, sulking, fighting with other cats, refusing to eat, not using the litter box, spraying urine on the owners clothing and compulsive grooming behaviors, such as licking or pulling at hair until it comes out. Why do cats do these things? It makes them feel better. Take spraying urine on your bedding or clothing please! Your belongings carry your scent, and applying her own scent to them makes your cat feel more secure, almost as if youre there. Its a compliment of sorts, even if its one youd rather not receive. Are you doomed to life with a bald, angry cat who doesnt want you to leave the house? You might not be able to cure your cats separation anxiety, but you can probably manage it successfully by enriching the environment and offering more playtime and attention. To keep your cats mind off your absence, make being home more interesting for him. Leave out a puzzle toy filled with a meals worth of kibble. The time spent releasing the food from the toy is time not spent being destructive. And most cats tend to settle down after the first half-hour that youre gone. Rotate favorite interactive toys so your cat doesnt have a chance to get bored. Put them out only when youre going to be away from home. Give your cat some screen time TV screen, that is. Turn on the TV to a nature channel or play a DVD made for cats. The sights and sounds of birds, fish, squirrels and other animals can help hold a cats interest. Offer a room with a view and a gym. Install a window perch so your cat can watch the squirrels outside, and place a tall cat tree in an interesting spot so he can get some exercise climbing up and down it. Provide live entertainment in the form of a bird feeder set in front of the window or an aquarium placed where your cat can see it but not access it. If possible, build an enclosure in your yard that your cat can access from indoors. A chance to laze in the sun and roll in the grass is relaxing for everyone, including cats. Give your cat a favorite treat when you leave, not when you come home. Spend a few minutes once or twice a day playing with or petting your cat. If your cat knows hell get attention when youre home, hes less likely to be anxious when youre gone. If all else fails, consult a veterinary behaviorist. She may prescribe an antianxiety medication that can help your cat stay calm. Not all cats are loners. Some become anxious when left to their own devices. >>Dude is a handsome 2-yearold pit bull mix who weighs about 67 pounds, He likes to play and go for walks.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 NEWS A31 THE DIVA DIARIESWith fall in the air, it feels like time for a clean sweepIn northern climes, they call it spring cleaning and I get it. After enduring a long winter of a tightly closed house, there comes that first glorious April day when you throw open the windows and the doors and start clearing away a season of dust and dirt. Here in Southwest Florida, its the opposite. We have fall cleaning, and it usually happens around mid-October. Its that exhilarating morning where you can walk outdoors and actually breathe comfortably and without your mascara melting off. Excitedly, you turn off the air conditioning, and as the fresh 75-degree air makes its way through the house, you suddenly get the cleaning bug. The thing is, you dont necessarily have the time, so you hire someone. And thats where it all gets complicated. Recently, a girlfriend of mine treated herself to a one-time maid service. Shes a freelancer and works several jobs, while her husbands work requires constant travel. She decided to surprise her hubby, but found herself cleaning right along with the team that she was paying. Well, what was I going to do? she asked me. Sit around and file my nails while they scrubbed our toilets? This is why, on the rare occasions when my husband Todd has hired a cleaning service to do our windows and floors, I cower in the guest bedroom. What am I supposed to do? Theres a person, in my home, cleaning my mess and honestly, Im just embarrassed. In all actuality, I can DO it I just cant do it as nicely as the professionals. Upon surveying my friends, I discovered that ALL of them clean for the cleaning service. Terri scrubs the bathroom. Lynne wipes down all the counters. Michelle takes out the trash. And all of them said the same thing about their cleaning people: I dont want them to think Im a mess. While I enjoyed the occasional professional clean sweep of our abode, I hated hiding in the guest room the entire time, texting people and playing Words With Friends while hearing a vacuum cleaner, operated by a stranger, suck dirt from my baseboards. I just felt so guilty.So I do it all myself now. Admittedly, we dont have that fancy up-and-down vacuum pattern on the carpet or plumped-up pillows on our bed that reach halfway to the foot, but at least I dont have to hide for three hours. The only people who miss that are my Words With Friends partners. Meanwhile, while our kitchen floor doesnt exactly sparkle, my conscience glitters.Strut Your MuttAs much fun as it is to come up with a Halloween costume for yourself, pet owners know that its even more fun to figure out what friendly Fido and fluffy Mittens will wear to Strut Your Mutt, the annual pet costume contest that benefits Humane Society Naples and The Shelter for Abused Women & Children.

B8-9 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 The baby boomer demographics are unavoidable, like an 18-wheeler without brakes barreling down a highway. Every day, another one retires or gets closer to the day when assisted living facilities are a destination. By 2030, 70 million Americans will be 65 or older and, according to a Social Security life-expectancy chart, 25 percent of todays 65-year-olds will live past 90 and 10 percent past 95. Many will wind up in some sort of assisted-living facility. The flood is coming, said Rita Southern, director of assisted living and resident support services at Shell Point Retirement Community in south Fort Myers. The marketplace is responding by building more and more such facilities and making them more attractive to those who can afford them. We embrace the competition, Ms. Southern said. Shell Point, for example, last year opened The Springs, the third assistedliving facility on its campus. Discovery Senior Living in Bonita Springs announced earlier this year it will open its second Discovery Village in the area. The new one will be in Naples. A Discovery Village at The Forum in Fort Myers is scheduled to open this month. Vicki Tracy, director of The Arlington in Naples, said the finest facilities are like Disney for seniors.

Any SEC rule that remained in place for 80 years must have had some mighty good reasons to have remained intact that is until commissioners agreed there were even better reasons for the rule to be lifted. The SECs commissioners recently voted 4-1 to lift the ban on general solicitation by hedge funds and other private funds. Now, these funds can enter the world of advertising, sponsoring events, cold-calling, linking on social websites and freely speaking to the public. Hedge funds will be able to enter the advertising world of mutual funds and financial advisers. Prior to the emancipation in July, hedge and private fund managers used roundabout ways to disseminate information on their funds, such as word of mouth, client referral, professional networking, speaking engagements to institutional investors, etc. The thinking behind the creation of the rule decades ago was that investors should be protected from hedge funds and other private funds, as there is often a much greater lack of liquidity and a much higher degree of risk characterizing such portfolios. As to the liquidity argument, yes, private funds in general are appreciably less liquid than directly owned, publicly traded, equity and bond securities. Some of the underlying investments are quite illiquid in that they involve private stock and real estate. Yet, some of these illiquid funds are actually invested in highly liquid assets but these managers often, in self interest, include provisions that make it more difficult for investors to have an easy cash out, i.e., they add lock up provisions. Managers can rightfully argue that investors are emotional and ill time their entry and exit and these lock ups help their investors in the long run. The investment-risk argument holds even less merit. A look back at 2008 shows that the S&P Index grossly underperformed hedge funds during one of the greatest risk-on events of the last 50 years: the S&P lost 38 percent while hedge funds lost 21 percent. The new thinking that lifted the ban has come under the leadership of the new Securities and Exchange chairman, Mary Jo White, who adopted the move to be in compliance with the new The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, which became part of the recovery program for the Great Recession; the new solicitation rules (oddly) came under the JOBS Act provisions. The SEC did not change the rules surrounding the types of investors allowed to participate in hedge and private funds; it remains that only accredited investors are given admittance. Accredited investors are defined as those having $200,000 or greater annual income over the past two years or net assets (excluding their homes) of $1 million. (For couples, accredited status is met by $300,000 of combined income.) However, while the accredited investor definition is unchanged, the rules regarding verification of such investors income or assets have changed: hedge and private funds that accept the right to solicit the general public are required to verify the investors attestations of such. Funds not soliciting to the general public (i.e. still operating under the old SEC rules forbidding general solicitation) can continue to accept investors without detailed income and asset verification. They can continue to accept signed statements by investors that they are accredited without further verification. The relaxation of the solicitation rule is most probably a positive for those investors who previously wanted to participate but were excluded because they were not approached or did not know how to get the information needed to participate they were not in a good-old boys network. On alert should be: dentists, lawyers, doctors, business owners and other highprofile, upper-income earners. They will likely get letters, phone calls and requests to link through social media, etc. Instead of just brokerage firms advertising free dinners to hear an investment expert, there will most likely be dinners promoting hedge and private funds. Although the relaxation of the rule was intended to do good for capital formation and for the start-up fund manager, the reality is that most start-up fund managers dont have the economic wherewithal to engage in major advertising and promotion. Beyond the money needed, they are restrained by lack of personnel to affect such campaigns; they are often too busy trying to manage the money. The manager with hundreds of millions under hedge/private equity management can easily roll general solicitation campaigns out the door. Probably the biggest reason why the rule had to be changed was the current investment environment is radically different from 80 years ago. Now, dollars raised in the public equity market are dwarfed by dollars raised in the private fund markets. Surely, the naysayers can point to the fact that many accredited investors are ill prepared to make these investments and that $1 million in assets is not a huge amount of capital to be an accredited investor. And others point to the fact that the greatest number of securities violations were by those in private funds, not in public securities. (This is somewhat expected, given the skew away from public underwritings toward dollars being raised by private funds.) For wealth investors, a well-balanced portfolio that has potential to handle all forms of economic weather will include much more than just equities and bonds. Consult your adviser as to suitability of hedge fund or private equity inclusion in your portfolio. Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Churn Butter, Not MoneyThe word churn might conjure images of dairy farms and milkmaids, but theres another kind of churning its financial, and it can hurt you. That kind of churning is when a financial professional engages in excessive trading (buying and selling) ostensibly on someones behalf, often generating commissions for himself and usually not serving his client very well. This churning results in billions of dollars lost each year.Many stockbrokers are paid based on the number of trades they make in your account, not how well that account performs. (This explains the cold calls that can interrupt your dinner, as some broker tries to sell you on an amazing opportunity.) Even if your broker is good and has you invested in growing companies, she might still be moving you out of one good company and into another too frequently. Each transaction results in a gain for the brokerage regardless of how it fares for you.Churning is also a problem in the mutual fund industry. Fund managers are often so pressured to beat the market over short periods that they cant simply be patient with solid investments that are temporarily doing poorly. Mutual funds that buy and sell frequently have what is called a high turnover rate. Unsurprisingly, funds with the highest turnover rates tend to underperform their less active counterparts. After all, lots of buying and selling generates lots of commission expenses, which are borne by shareholders. Finally, we individual investors ourselves sometimes engage in churning if we have short attention spans or are just impatient. Churned investors are hurt not only by excessive commission costs, but also taxes. Any stocks youve held for more than a year get taxed at the preferable long-term capital gains rate, which is 15 percent for most people. Short-term gains are taxed at your ordinary income rate, which can approach 40 percent. So selling appreciated stock before you need to or should can cost you more. In your financial life, keep the cost of churning in mind. Not a FlukeI bought some Apple shares at $46. The stock rose, and then was fairly flat for years, so when it surged, I figured it was a fluke and sold around $87 per share. I should have just taken my original investment amount and left the rest. So, the rest is history. The iPhone was soon rolled out and then the iPad. If only I had just hung onto those shares! K.M., onlineThe Fool responds: Apple stock passed the $700-per-share mark last year and has recently been near $500. Many great stocks can be volatile, with the companies enduring some stagnant times. Apple stock is down by double digits over the past year, but has averaged annual gains of close to 25 percent over the past 20 years. Keep up with your holdings progress, competitive position and growth potential, and determine how much confidence you have in them. Whenever you have little faith in a company, selling is the right thing to do. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Apple and its newsletters have recommended it.) Fertilize Your PortfolioMost of us havent given much thought to the fertilizer industry, but we should. Consider potash companies, for example, such as industry leader Potash Corp. (NYSE: POT). Its stock has fallen by more than a quarter over the past year, leading some to see it as a bargain. Fertilizer is made up of three market segments: potash, phosphates and nitrogen-based fertilizers. Demand is cyclical in the short-run, tied to crop prices and, peripherally, to the state of the world economy. But in the long-run, demand is kind of inevitable, and likely to grow in part due to rising worldwide per-capita incomes, attempts to maximize crop yields and a trend toward higher protein consumption in emerging markets. Potash Corp. is the worlds largest supplier of potash, controlling 20 percent of capacity. Would-be competitors face tough barriers to entry, such as steep mine development costs and the fact that a handful of producers own most of the industrys capacity. Potash does face risks, such as its vulnerability to fertilizer prices, but it is bolstered by being one of the lowest-cost potash producers. That also gives it a competitive edge. Potash stock has been looking rather tasty recently, with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 12 and a dividend yield at 4.3 percent. It has been hiking that dividend significantly in recent years, too. Consider taking a closer look at it. I was founded in 1932 and sold my f ir st pr oduct, an innovative long-lasting nail enamel, to beauty salons, department stores and certain drugstores. During World War II, I made first aid kits and dye markers for the Navy. Following the war, I produced nail enamel, lipstick and tools for manicures and pedicures. Beginning in the 1950s, I sponsored television programs. In the 1970s, my Charlie fragrance was the worlds best-seller. Brands Ive bought or own include Almay, Halston, Max Factor, Mitchum and Gatineau. My market value tops $1 billion. My ticker symbol reflects what engines can do. Who am I? (Answer: Revlon) Learn the RulesQ I have some money Id like to invest. Id like to set up a Roth IRA, but I want to be able to withdraw the money whenever I need to without paying a penalty. What should I do? K.L., DetroitA First, remember that any money you might need within a few years (and even 10 years, if youre very risk-averse) should not be in stocks, as they can be volatile in the short run. So stick with investments such as CDs or money market funds for short-term money. Roth IRAs are terrific for most of us, as we can eventually withdraw money from them tax-free no matter how much our holdings have grown in value over time. There are rules, though. Youre expected to leave your money in them for at least five years and to not withdraw your earnings until age 59. Otherwise, a 10 percent early withdrawal penalty fee may apply. Get more IRA details at rothira.com and fool.com/retirement/ira/index. aspx. To be able to withdraw funds at will, you might want to open a regular brokerage account for investments that are not tax-advantaged. Learn more at broker.fool.com. Dont dismiss the Roth too quickly, though its tax benefit can be very powerful, as long as you leave the money to grow. ***Q Which good books discuss the worlds best investors?

Local banks finalize merger agreementFNB of the Gulf Coast, Shamrock to combine operations SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNaples-based TGR Financial Inc., First National Bank of the Gulf Coast and Shamrock Bank of Florida have signed a definitive merger agreement whereby Shamrock will merge into First National Bank. The transaction is expected to close during the first quarter of 2014. On a pro forma basis, the combined company will have approximately $770 million in assets, $511 million in loans and $644 million in deposit relationships, with a branch office network of six banking locations in Collier County. Under the terms of the agreement, Shamrock shareholders will receive payment in two phases. In the phase one payment, Shamrock shareholders will receive 0.59 shares of TGRs common stock for each share of Shamrock common stock, which reflects a value of $3.10 per share of Shamrock common stock and a value of $5.25 per share of TGR common stock. The transaction also includes a maximum contingency payment subject to the occurrence of certain events pending closing and for up to one year after the closing date. Shamrock has served the Collier County community in a similar manner as First National Bank, and we believe this combination will benefit both banks customers with more services and locations, says Gary Tice, chairman and CEO of First National Bank of the Gulf Coast. In todays economic and regulatory environment, we believe that creating additional scale is the significant driver of future profitability and shareholder return. After the merger, Shamrocks President and CEO Colleen Kvetko will join the board of directors of First National Bank and serve as executive vice president. Shamrock operates two locations in Collier County and has assets of $101 million, loans of $64.5 million and deposit relationships of $89.8 million as of Sept. 30. First National Bank recently filed an application with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to open its first branch office outside of Collier County, to be located in Tampa. Based on deposit market share data issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as of June 30, the combined entity would rank as the largest community bank in Collier County, with approximately 5.3 percent of the deposit base, and would be the sixth largest overall financial institution. Health Care Dr. Harmindar Gill, a board certified radiologist who is dual-trained in thoracic and womens imaging, has opened Premier Womens Radiology at 27160 Bay Landing Drive in Bonita Springs.

They want resort-style living, Ms. Tracy said. New facilities are popping up or are on planning tables all around Southwest Florida. Its the fastest-growing industry in the United States, Ms. Tracy said. The growth is evident throughout the area. The old Ambassador Hotel in downtown Fort Myers, which at different times operated since its 1986 opening as a Sheraton, Ramada and Amtel hotel, will become a senior independent-living facility, according to the current plans of developer Bob MacFarlane. The facility will be called Campo Felice. The price tag to clean up the empty building and transform it into its new incarnation is $61 million. Mr. MacFarlane expects to take over the building by the end of October. The change will be a benefit for downtown Fort Myers, according to Don Paight, executive director of the Fort Myers Redevelopment Agency. He estimated the Edwards Drive building at the foot of the Edison Bridge has been vacant for five or six years. The salmon-colored building on the eastern part of what marketers call the Fort Myers River District will be changed and take on a beige or offwhite color, according to Mr. Paight. The empty building will have 323 living units for independent living. The new downtown Fort Myers branch of the Lee County Library System will be out the back door, just across First Street from Campo Felice. What do people expect from such facilities? Punta Gorda resident Jane Dickinson said her late mother, Mary Frances Decker, spent about two years in Sterling House, a Punta Gorda assistedliving facility, before dying at age 97 in 2011. Mrs. Dickinson said she found the staff caring and nice. Moving into the facility, though, was an adjustment for her mother, who was a widow who had lived alone a long time. She wasnt a social person, Mrs. Dickinson said. But Sterling House, like many such facilities, offers social activities. She grew to like the activities but it took her a while, Mrs. Dickinson said. Charlotte County is a natural place for such facilities because it is the county with the second-oldest median age in the country, 55.9. The oldest is Sumter County in north-central Florida, where the median age is 62.7, almost seven years older than Charlotte. Charlotte County has many other assisted-living facilities in addition to Sterling House, places such as Port Charlottes Lexington Manor. The write-up for the award noted that children of residents will know their parents are well cared for, engaged in a full day of fun activities and enjoying gourmet meals prepared by Culinary Institute-trained chefs. We suggest joining them whenever the frosted lime salad appears on the lunch menu or glazed Cornish game hens are served at dinner. Writer and historian Dorothy Jane Mills, 84, has resided in The Carlisle, a Naples assisted-living facility, for six years, first with her husband, Roy, and now alone since he died last year. This is the second assisted-living facility shes called home in Naples. Ive made the Carlisle my home, Mrs. Mills wrote in an e-mail to Florida Weekly. Its a beautiful and comfortable place to live. Staff members are remarkably kind and helpful. The food is of high quality, delicious and well-prepared. I have a very nice office for my work, and interesting activities are available for fun and self-development. The only thing Id like to see done is to broaden and modernize the cuisine so that it would also cater to vegetarians, vegans and those who must eat glutenfree. Mrs. Mills closed her e-mail with this: Naples is a haven for these senior communities. I think they compete with each other to attract customers. The Carlisle always has a long waiting list of seniors waiting for an apartment. Another Naples facility is Moorings Park, which boasts on its website that it is the only continuing care retirement community in the city of Naples. Moorings Park CEO and president Dan Lavender said the trends within his industry are the same things you see in the housing market. Mr. Lavender explained that features that homeowners want in larger houses higher ceilings, for example are becoming the norm in assisted living. The future of the industry, he said, will include more customization in dining. That would include some of the choices Mrs. Mills alluded to in her email. To keep up with the competition, Moorings Park has recently added a 37,000-square foot workout facility, a beauty salon and a lecture hall that seats 76. The speaker schedule includes experts in various fields from Florida Gulf Coast University and Hodges University. The need is there, Mr. Lavender said. The 65-plus percentage of Collier Countys population sits at 26 percent, double the national average of 13 percent. Rita Southern sat in a conference room at Shell Point and talked about the changes shes seen in her 27 years at the facility located near the Sanibel Causeway. Expectations of residents and families are higher now than they were in the 1980s. I think people want to have meaningful purpose, Ms. Southern said. And they want to live in some place that feels like their home, that they can embrace as their home. How can they better their life? What does that person want to do? What havent they done in their life? We have a great iPad class. You would think, wow, somebody living in assisted living would want an iPad, would that be something they would have any interest in? You cant imagine the thrill of having a senior be able to Skype grandkids over an iPad, and its not cumbersome and its not scary. That brings true meaningful purpose to that persons life. Assisted-living professionals such as Ms. Southern said they enjoy working with and around residents. I take lessons every day, Ms. Southern said. Theres a way to get old. I take every amount of wisdom they have to share. Vicki Tracy, 58, is a baby boomer and director of the Arlington, but she sees a day at some point in the future when her status there will change. I will live at the Arlington, Ms. Tracy said. LIVINGFrom page 1 Renderings of the future Arlington Naples show the bistro and marketplace, top; the terrace lounge, above; and the grand hall, left.

A former Naples resident and an original member of the Opera Naples Young Artists program, Ms. Gayer made her Broadway debut in 2011 portraying Young Sally opposite Bernadette Peters in Stephen Sondheims Follies. Shes a hometown girl who made it big, says Opera Naples Artistic Director Steffanie Pearce. The Telephone and The Medium, separate chamber operas by Italian-American composer and librettist Gian Carlo Menotti, will be presented as one work Friday and Saturday, Oct. 18-19, in the Daniels Pavilion at ArtisNaples. Ms. Gayer will portray Monica in The Medium, an intense drama that revolves around the wonders of a sance held by Madame Flora. The Telephone, on the other hand, is a two-character comedy that centers on a marriage proposal and how the telephone, an instrument that is supposed to promote communication, can, in fact, hinder it. Pairing the works in one show is common, says Mark Danni, founding artistic director of TheatreZone and director of the chamber operas for Opera Naples. Theyre very often combined because of their length, so that people have a full evening of entertainment, he adds. Each of the three acts two in The Medium and one in The Telephone is 20 minutes long.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSIs there an app for that?On a recent weekday evening, I waited to meet a friend at a small coffee shop downtown. It was the kind of place that serves gluten-free cookies and has a steady stream of young people with laptops passing through. There was a handsome young man at the table across from me with gingercolored hair and a matching beard. He looked smart, well groomed and a touch bookish exactly the kind of guy I go for. When he stood up to buy another cup of coffee from the counter, he smiled as he passed my table and my heart trilled. My friend wasnt due for another hour, so I worked on my iPad and sipped hot tea. As I was typing, I noticed a new message pop up on my Skype account. I almost never use Skype when Im in the U.S.; its mostly a holdover from my trips abroad. I wondered who could be contacting me. John Michael, according to Skype. I flipped through my mental Rolodex. Did I know any John Michaels? We exchanged innocuous greetings and I waited for him to give me some clue as to how we might have met. In France? In Africa? Where do you live, dear? John Michael asked, and I realized: We dont know each other at all. That doesnt mean we cant be friends on here, he wrote back. I rolled my eyes. Briefly, when the Internet was first catching on and everyone used AOL, I dipped my teenage toes in the chat room scene. That was during the days when the Web had a Wild West feel. Everything seemed new and vaguely dangerous in an exciting way. But it didnt take long for me to abandon the chat rooms. It felt too unreal, too much like wish fulfillment. One time and one time only I gave a guy I had been chatting with my phone number. It took a single call from him for me to realize that the person I had imagined was nothing like the teenager stammering on the other end of the line. This idea of whats genuine and whats invented on the Internet came up recently during a dinner with friends. Everyone at the table except me was under 30. They were Millennials, the up-and-coming generation, people whove never lived without an e-mail address, who cant make it through a meal without texting or tweeting. My friends were adamant that I need an online dating profile. Not just that, but they described the other options out there, including Tinder, an app for connecting singles in the same vicinity (it wasnt until the end of the night that I realized they werent saying tender). Theres even an app for rating men Lulu where women can let other women know about a guys potential datability. I knew my friends meant well, but it all felt very impersonal to me. Anyway, who needs online gimmicks when there are good-looking boys in coffee shops giving you the eye? But as time ticked past and the ginger-haired man showed no signs of making a m ove, I started to reconsider. Maybe a little technological help wouldnt be so bad after all. m h M d f artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 Welcome...Robert G.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 Some work in bursts of manic energy for hours on end, while others, their time eaten up by a day job or family obligations, resort to stealing odd hours here and there. Writer Mason Currey considers himself a morning person because he does his most productive work before lunchtime. But a few years ago, when he had a Monday deadline, he went into his office at Metropolis magazine on a Sunday afternoon to try to knock it out, as he puts it. But I ran into this problem: when I try to write in the afternoon, I cant focus. As part procrastination, part miseryloves-company, he began searching on the Internet for stories of writers who could only work in the morning. I found these great stories, he says. Im always fascinated by stories of how other writers work, other artists.Someone should put that on a blog, he thought. And because one didnt already exist, he created one, calling it Daily Routines. (As for his deadline story, he wound up writing it that Monday morning, at the last minute.) Mr. Currie kept adding stories of artists daily routines to his blog as he ran across them. Sometimes people sent stories to him. He wrote about artists, writers, architects, painters, composers, performance artists, poets and philosophers. I was thinking of routines, things people do every day, habits that arent glamorous, but the unconscious acts that you repeat day after day that add up to letting you create something worthwhile, he explains. For a while, his readership was limited to his family, friends and co-workers. But when an editor at Slate.com asked readers to submit accounts about their morning routines, Mr. Currey wrote in about his blog. The subsequent online story then linked to it, sending thousands of new readers to his site. Among them was an agent who thought Daily Routines would make a great book. Mr. Currey wrote a proposal and the agent wrangled him a book contract. He let the blog go dormant (The editors wanted me to save the best stuff for the book, he says) and starting working on the book, while still working as an editor at Metropolis. (He has since quit and moved across the country to Los Angeles, where he freelances for the online magazine core77.) Ironically, he found his own daily routine changing. Before working on the book, hed typically get up early only if there was an emergency or if it was crunch time at work. Once I had the book (deal), I realized that if I wanted to get it done, Id have to get up early every day, he says. If you have some time of day that is your best period, take advantage of that and arrange your schedule. So hed get up at 5:30 every morning, brush his teeth, make a cup of coffee and sit down and work on his book for a couple hours before going into the magazine office for his day job. As he notes in his books introduction: The word (routine) connotes ordinariness, or even lack of thought; to follow a routine is to be on autopilot. But ones daily routine is also a choice, or a whole series of choices. In the right hands it can be a finely calibrated mechanism for taking advantage of a range of limited resources: time (the most limited resource of all) as well as willpower, self-discipline, optimism. A solid routine fosters a well-worn groove for ones mental energies and helps stave off the tyranny of moods. As he learned about other artists habits in published interviews, biographies and personal journals as well as through conducting his own interviews, he learned that many of them did things to prevent distractions. If work was not going well, the painter NC Wyeth would tape a piece of cardboard to the side of his glasses in order not to be distracted by the view outside his studio window. Maya Angelou wrote in hotel or motel rooms almost as bare as a monks cell. For the longest time, the artist Joseph Cornell would assemble his boxes on his mothers kitchen table, after everyone had gone to bed. Novelist Richard Wright would write on a park bench, even in the rain. Some writers could only work while in bed. Truman Capote wrote while horizontal. I cant think unless Im lying down, either in bed or stretched out on a couch and with a cigarette and coffee handy, Mr. Currey quotes him saying in a Paris Review interview. Edith Sitwell could also only write while in bed. (Mr. Currey writes: Literary legend has it that Sitwell used to lie in an open coffin for a while before she began her days work; this foretaste of the grave was supposed to inspire her macabre fiction and poetry. The tale is probably false.) Thomas Wolfe wrote while standing up; at 6 feet, 6 inches tall, he used the top of the refrigerator as his desk. Ernest Hemingway also wrote while standing, facing a chest-high bookcase with a typewriter on top, and on top of that a wooden reading board. First drafts were composed in pencil on onionskin typewriter paper laid slantwise across the board; when the work was going well Hemingway would remove the board and shift to the typewriter, Mr. Currey writes. (He also writes that contrary to popular literary legend, Mr. Hemingway did not begin every writing session by sharpening 20 No. 2 pencils. Haruki Murikami wakes at 4 a.m. and writes for five or six hours; Ann Beattie finds she writes best at night. William Styron would sleep until noon and sit down at his typewriter at 4 p.m. Daily Rituals, released in late April, has been so successful that it was in its fifth printing five months later. Reviewers tend to focus on the more outrageous behavior of the artists Mr. Currey writes about, such as those who would start the day off with a glass of whiskey. I think that people latch onto these sort of outlandish and interesting behaviors, understandably, he says. But thats not the focus of his book, he adds. Its a little misleading when we talk about the craziest things. Even the people who had bizarre habits still had the more mundane side of their routine, where they sat down and worked in spite of their addictions and obligations. While many artists would jumpstart themselves with coffee, alcohol or drugs, many would also break for naps or take regular walks. I was amazed by how many long walks there are (in the book), Mr. Currey says. People trying to build the perfect routine would be sure to squeeze in a walk (as part of it.) Building down time into a schedule is important, many said, because they found that some of their best ideas would come when they temporarily stepped away from the work. I procrastinate just the right amount, the artist Maira Kalman told Mr. Currey. There are things which help me get in the mood to work. Cleaning for one. Ironing is great. Taking a walk is always inspiring. Because my work is often based on what I see, I am happy to keep collecting and changing images until the last moment. One recurring theme in the book is that you shouldnt wait for inspiration to do your creative work. Over and over again people from different creative disciplines said that if they waited for inspiration to strike, they wouldnt do anything, Mr. Currey says. Work every day, dont wait for inspiration to strike. Out of that process, youll get ideas, and youll get inspiration. But you cant wait for it. The painter Chuck Close told him: Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work. Another theme that comes out of the book is that even the masters of different creative disciplines struggle on a daily basis to do quality work. Thats kind of encouraging and depressing, Mr. Currey says. For those of us who are trying to write or do other creative work, it is a struggle People have said that the writing never gets easier, but you learn to trust in the process, you learn to break through. Those searching for a magic formula in Daily Routines are bound to be disappointed. People are asking, whats the takeaway? Whats the perfect daily routine or the combination of materials and setting and time management that will let me be a great creative artist? Mr. Currey says. There is no magic formula. No one should be surprised. Everyone has to figure out their own combination of creative habits and rituals that work for them.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Saturday, October 26th Monster mashHalloween Reading Mason Curreys book, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, and talking with the author piqued our curiosity about the creative routines of Southwest Florida artists. So we asked a few of them. Heres what they had to say.James Lilliefors, Naples>> Author of The Leviathan Effect and Viral I get up and go for a run and usually start writing about 10 each morning. It depends on where I am (in the process). Im in a new book now, and at this point, I look forward to getting up and writing. Ive been through the initial research phase; the novels I do involve a lot of research. Im still learning as I go along, evolving. I will sometimes work until 4 or 5, but sometimes stop at 3. It depends on how it goes. I dont have quotas (of a certain number of words, or pages, a day.) I play it by ear. This is my day job. I dont have a second job. If its going well, I work seven days a week. Sometimes its good to take time off. A lot of times I get good ideas going out to the beach, going out for a run or traveling. Its good to get away from it sometimes. And thats when the ideas come. Im not really a morning person. I sometimes go back to it in the evening, if its intense. It varies.Joyce Owens, Fort Myers>> Architect, Architecture Joyce Owens Personally, Im a night person. But my profession is a day job, because I have to work with builders and contractors. They work from 7 to 3. The business of architecture, getting things built, has to be done during working hours. Im always working by 8:30 a.m., though I dont always go into the of ce. I try to do early-morning site visits. It forces me to get up. My engines barely get going by 10. I really have to discipline myself. Thats the business side of it. But when Im designing, the creative side of what I do, what I try to do is get chunks of time, because I have to go inside my head and concentrate. So I need big wads of time, four to six hours. I take it wherever I can nd it, (whether) its the afternoon or into the evening, late at night or on weekends. The creative part of my job cant be done in small doses. It has to be done in big stretches of time.Jim Grif th, Fort Myers>> Violist, Naples Philharmonic Orchestra >> Director, The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center I burn the candle at both ends. My schedule uctuates, depending upon what concerts I have. If I have a big chamber concert coming up, I go back to my Juilliard days and practice four to ve hours a day, in addition to the rehearsals leading up to the concert. I have my 9-to-5 job at the art center. When we have events here, Im in attendance, setting up for it, cleaning up afterward. Load in, load out. And then Ive got to put my suit on and do the director job. There are days when Ill have a morning rehearsal at the Philharmonic, then rush back here to do meetings during of ce hours, then rush back to do an evening performance at the Philharmonic, and rush back (to the art center) to clean up after an event. Sixteen-, 18-hour days are the norm during season. After Christmas I pretty much say goodbye to my wife, See you in May. But then we make up for it when the season slows down.Dan Miller, Fort Myers>> Jazz trumpet player, The Dan Miller Quartet and the Naples Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra Being a trumpet player, playing a brass instrument, we only have a nite amount of chops on a given day. So if Im playing a concert or a gig, Ill just do a one-hour warm-up routine before I go to play the job, because I need to save my physicality for the performance. Ill do that anywhere from one to three hours before, just to get the blood owing in the lips and get the muscles prepared. On a day when Im not working, I practice anywhere from three to six hours. I break it up, because I have teaching commitments; Im doing private lessons. Ill try to practice a couple hours before I teach, because often Im playing along with my students as I teach. When Im done teaching, my routine is to practice (again) from 7 to 11 p.m. During season, when I have more evening gigs, I do less practicing.Jonathan Green, Charleston, S.C. (formerly of Naples)>> Painter I get up at 3 in the morning. I go to my studio and I start to paint at 4 a.m. I usually paint from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. If I do any business, its usually after 1 oclock but I try to let my business partner, Richard (Weedman), take care of that. I try to keep in the studio. Its a good routine and it works well for us.Liz Hutchinson-Sperry>> Punta Gorda >> Painter Ordinarily, I walk in the mornings from 5:45 to 6:45 along the Peace River. While walking, I look at different ways to solve problems within a painting: Is it a composition problem? Is it a value problem? A drawing problem, or a color problem? Its still dark that time of the morning, so I have no distractions. If Im careful in my analyzing, in my minds eye I can see the work and where I am. Those walks have been some of the most productive time Ive spent. I have Red Hat Studio in downtown historic Punta Gorda. (Its named after a painting I did of my granddaughter, and has nothing to do with the Red Hat Society.) Three days a week I have students. I paint on the remaining days: Thursday, Friday and Saturday or Sunday. Im able to sit down at the easel and recall the analysis of my walks. Ill start painting at 7 in the morning, and Ive been known to stay in my studio to 4 or 5 in the afternoon. When things are working, its working. I think if you assign yourself a place where you set you mind to (work on your art) when you get to that place, your mind is pre-set (to work).

SPECIAL CAPTAIN MORGAN PARADE CRUISE! $ 119 ONLY ROUND TRIP!* ARTS COMMENTARYInternational, edgy and unlike anything youve ever seenThe language of art is universal. That message came through emphatically when I attended a day full of performances at the Ringling International Arts Festival in Sarasota last week. Of the two theater performances I saw, one was in Russian, the other in Farsi. Both had supratitles, as if they were opera. The third performance I saw was a silent film, accompanied by piano and string quartet. I guess you could say the language of that was flickering light and strings. I look forward to the RIAF every fall ever since the first time I attended, its been on my Dont Miss List. I never know what Im going to see, but I know one thing: Itll be exciting, challenging and unlike anything else Im able to see in Florida. The first show was Minsk, 2011: A Reply to Kathy Acker by the Belarus Free Theatre. The ensemble gave a gripping portrayal of what its like to live in a country under a dictatorship, where people can be arrested just for standing in the street with a group of friends. The show is a series of vignettes that reflect the actors various experiences in a country ruled by fear. In Belarus, the company had to give performances in private apartments, always with the fear of being discovered and arrested. Props are minimal, but used in creative ways. A red carpet, for example, is not only a red carpet thats rolled out; its also a river and a patch of marble in a subway station after an explosion. In one vignette, an actor recounts the various scars he has and how he obtained them. Initially, he points out scars that were the result of various childhood scrapes; the stories get darker as he tells of abuse and beatings from policemen. Scars adorn a man, he says. Many girls find it sexy. In this regard, Minsk is a beautiful and very sexy city. Welcome to Minsk! The sexiest city in the world! In the end, the actors line up in a row and, facing the audience, tell their stories one by one. Despite its harsh conditions and repressive regime, they still love their country. In contrast, Hamlet, Prince of Grief, presented by the Leev Theater Group, an Iranian nonprofit theater company, is a one-man show. Afshin Hashemi, dressed entirely in white, sits behind a table and acts out an adaptation of Hamlet using dolls, plastic toy animals and other unlikely props such as a colander and a skateboard. Mr. Hashemi was on stage, seated behind a table in the darkness, as the audience filed in. It was as if the audience was the pre-show, the watched instead of those watching. The show is not a faithful, line-by-line performance of Hamlet. Rather, it uses the classic Shakespeare play as a jumpingoff point. In it, Hamlet, a university student, has just finished his exams and is going on a picnic with some friends. Hes young and carefree. Then he receives a call on his cell phone telling him that his father is dead. And Hamlets life is no longer the same. This production focuses on the loss of innocence, that moment when childhood is gone. It is the abyss of a parents death, and being forever changed. The title character also has to deal with his mothers betrayal and avenge his fathers death. There was some clever use of props: a flashlight shining through a colander to portray twinkling stars, a skateboard for a car. The short show (approximately 30 minutes long) contained some haunting moments as well as flashes of humor. But unfortunately, the performance was marred by a couple who talked and mutter ed and complained throughout the entire performance. Im not sure what they were complaining about perhaps they couldnt see the supratitles on the back screen, perhaps they were disturbed that the actor was using toys to tell the story of Hamlet, or perhaps they were upset that the show wasnt in English. But whatever it was, they couldnt stop grousing about it. It was extremely distracting, especially in such a small, intimate space as the Cook Theatre, and took away from the entire experience. It was too bad none of the ushers in attendance did anything about it, such as ask the pair to be quiet or request that they leave. That boorish couple wouldve been more comfortable at the showing of Buster Keatons Sherlock Jr. that evening, where pianist Stephen Prutsman encouraged the audience to react out loud to what they saw on the screen: Cheer the hero, boo and hiss at the villain. Mr. Prutsman composed music for the entire film, which he and The Aeolus Quartet performed as the movie played. How often in life do you get to hear a string quartet provide the soundtrack to a silent movie? The stone-faced actor plays a movie projectionist who dreams of becoming a detective. The move is incredibly advanced, for being made in 1924. At one point, Buster Keatons character falls asleep in the projection room. He then steps out of his sleeping self and walks down into the movie theater itself, where he steps onto the stage to watch the action and then, steps directly into the movie itself! There were, as always, some wonderful extended chase scenes with split-second timing, and endless sight gags. It was unadulterated fun, an evening full of laughs. The RIAF, now in its fifth year, still seems to be finding its way. In an earlier year, events were scheduled too close to each other, so people had to rush from one theater to the other to try to catch the next show. This year, attendees experienced the opposite problem; shows were scheduled only at 1, 5 and 9 p.m., which meant that you typically had a three-hour gap between shows, and could only see three shows in a day. Perhaps the organizers hoped attendees would also go to the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art or the Ringling Circus Museum during those times when nothing was happening, but those institutions are here permanently and can be visited anytime. In previous years, it was possible to see four or even five different performances in one day, which was wonderful, especially for those making a day trip. This years festival marks the final year of a partnership between The Ringling and the Baryshnikov Arts Center, which provided the artistic direction. (And though he didnt perform this year, Mikhail Baryshnikov did attend some performances.) Even with fewer offerings than in previous years, the RIAF is an intriguing, thought-provoking, cutting-edge experience thats well worth the trip, no matter where you live in Florida. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Yana Rusakevich in Minsk, 2011: A Reply to Kathy Acker by Belarus Free Theatre

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Some misunderstandings resist being resolved. But your sincerity in wanting to soothe those hurt feelings wins the day. By months end, that relationship should begin to show signs of healing. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A hectic job schedule begins to ease just in time to blow off all that work-generated steam on Halloween. A family situation runs into an unexpected complication. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A cutting remark in the workplace needs to be handled with finesse. Remember: How you respond could determine the depth of support you gain from colleagues. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Once again, that Capricornean stubborn streak sets in and could keep you from getting much-needed advice. Fortunately, it lifts by weeks end, in time to make an informed decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A surprise trip early in the week could lead to other unexpected offers when you return. Word to the wise: Avoid talking too much about this until youve made some decisions. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Learning dominates the week for perspicacious Pisceans, who are always looking to widen their range of knowledge. A series of important job-linked commitments begins late in the week. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The high standards you set for yourself dont always translate into the behavior you expect of others. That relationship problem can be resolved if youre more flexible and less judgmental. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Not enough party bids to satisfy the Bovines fun-loving side this week? Go ahead and throw one of your own. Then prepare for some serious work coming up early next week. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A new and intensely productive cycle is about to kick in. Be careful not to get too stressed out, though. Make time to restore your energies by relaxing with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This could be a good time to share some of your plans with those closest to you. Their comments could give you some added insight into how you might accomplish your goals. LEO (July 23 to August 22) An attack of self-doubt might be unsettling for the usually super-assured Feline. But it could be your inner voice telling you to hold off implementing your plans until youve reassessed them. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a great time for you to reward yourself for all your hard work by taking a trip you havent spent months carefully planning, to somewhere you never thought youd be going.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 C11 Is it worth $10? YesTheres a reason Tom Hanks continues to be one of the preeminent actors of his generation. Aside from the Toy Story movies, his choices can hardly be considered safe. As he continues to seek and conquer new challenges, we as viewers often reap the benefits. Captain Phillips, based on the book A Captains Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALS and Dangerous Days at Sea by Capt. Richard Phillips and Stephan Talty, is no different. Mr. Hanks plays the titular sea captain whose ship is boarded by Somali pirates in April 2009. Initially Capt. Phillips, who is respected by his crew aboard the Maersk Alabama cargo ship off the coast of Africa, is able to fend off the unwanted visitors using by-the-book diversionary tactics. But without weapons on board, Somalis Muse (Barkhad Abdi), Bilal (Barkhad Abdirahman), Najee (Faysal Ahmed) and Elmi (Mahat M. Ali) are able to get on the ship and take the captain hostage. With his crew following orders and hiding, Capt. Phillips uses cunning stall tactics and disinformation to keep the Somalis off guard. Watching him outsmart the Somalis and keep a straight face leaves you smiling and full of tension smiling because Mr. Hanks, in all his likability, is extremely effective playing someone so clever; tense because of the danger the captain and the rest of the crew are in. The acting is top notch all around, with Mr. Hanks on top of his game again (although its not a showy performance, it may well earn him his sixth Oscar nomination) and the actors playing the Somalis nicely holding their own in their screen debuts. Director Paul Greengrass (United 93) expertly paces the film to sl owly build tension as the drama intensifies. Although Mr. Greengrass has rightly been criticized for jerky camera movements and jagged editing (The Bourne Supremacy), here, that style provides a gripping immediacy that immerses us in the cramped confines of the ship and later, a notably smaller life boat. Additionally, neither the initial attack that Capt. Phillips is able to fend off, the Somalis boarding the Alabama nor the arrival of the Navy feel rushed, which gives screenwriter Billy Rays (The Hunger Games) script time to develop characters and situations. This has the end result of getting the viewer emotionally invested, which is essential. If you remember hearing about the Somali pirate attacks when they occurred but dont recall the details, do yourself a favor and dont look them up until after youve seen Captain Phillips. The film will work better as a drama if youre unsure how it plays out, and you dont want to be thinking, Hey, thats not what Wikipedia said happened! when Tom Hanks is outsmarting uninvited Somalis. Whats more, this movie deserves your attention. Its a helluva story, told with competence from all involved. Its also the type of drama that gets nominated for writing, directing, and acting Oscars. Watch it, then expect to see its name again come awards time. LATEST FILMSCaptain Phillips t w s a t e danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Somali pirates have attempted to hijack the Maersk Alabama on at least three occasions since April 2009, all unsuccessfully. Weapons from the ship (which Capt. Phillips did not have at his disposal) repelled the attacks. CAPSULE REVIEWSGravity (George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, voice of Ed Harris) After debris destroys their ship, astronauts Kowalsky (Mr. Clooney) and Stone (Ms. Bullock) work together to survive. The visuals are absolutely stunning, and a strong lead performance from Ms. Bullock makes this one of the years best. Rated PG-13.Rush (Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl, Olivia Wilde) Director Ron Howards latest chronicles the rivalry between Formula One racecar drivers James Hunt (Mr. Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Mr. Bruhl). Its a captivating drama thats less about racing and more about how two men who hate each other bring out the best in one another. Great performances from the two leads, especially Mr. Bruhl. Rated R.Don Jon (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza) Sex addict and playboy Jon (Mr. Gordon-Levitt) meets Barbara (Ms. Johansson) and falls in love, but theyre worlds apart regarding what love really is. Brutally funny and honest, although a bit repetitive, writer/ director/star Gordon Levitts film is a success in all the right ways.

BETWEEN HYATT PLACE AND BARNES & NOBLE In the wingsComing from Naples Players, Marco troupe A sidesplitting gothic spoof and a comedic look at human nature open soon on two local stages. By The Naples Players in the Toybe Studio at the Sudgen Community Theatre, its The Mystery of Irma Vep, running Oct. 30-Nov. 23. And by the Island Theater Company on Marco Island, its Blame it on Beckett, running Nov. 1-16 at the Marco Island Historical Museum. The Mystery of Irma Vep stars Mike Santos and Mark Vanagas, who play seven different roles. Its a quick-change send up of horror stories when Lord Edgar Hillcrest and his new wife, Lady Enid, embark on a journey to find out what happened to Irma Vep. They travel from their estate in England all the way to Egypt, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to satirizing the melodramatic likes of Dracula, Rebecca, Wuthering Heights, The Wolfman and The Mummys Curse, among others. Show times for The Mystery of Irma Vep are 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for students. Call box office at 263-7990 or visit www.naplesplalyers. org.And on MarcoA comedy by John Morogiello, Blame it on Beckett provides an interesting look at human nature and the phenomenon of what people will do to get ahead. The main character, Heidi Bishop, is a wide-eyed dramaturgy intern, eager to better American drama. What she encounters instead is an endless stream of bad scripts by desperate playwrights and a literary office filled with cynicism and turf battles, led by her bitter but hilarious boss, Jim Foley. When Heidi's efforts to improve things run into unintended consequences, shes forced to confront her idealism with reality to save her career, reputation and relationships. The Island Theater company cast consists of John Moulton as the dramaturg, Mr. Foley; Mai Puccio as the playwright, Tina Fike; Jared Wagner as the theater general manager, Mike Braschi; and Abby Yetter as Ms. Bishop the intern. Centennial Bank sponsors the production of Blame it On Beckett and hosts an opening-night party after the show. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1-2, 8-9 and 14-15, and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 3 and 10.

Brought to you in part by like us on facebook FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 FLORIDA WRITERSComic mystery blends shady mayor, bondage buddies and bossy mama Mama Gets Trashed, by Deborah Sharp. Midnight Ink. 341 pages. $14.99. With her fifth Mace Bauer Mystery, Deborah Sharp has raised the bar for her unique blend of suspense and laughter. When readers find Mace and Mama searching for lost jewelry in the town dump, we know the sparks are going to fly. Its Mamas wedding ring that was accidentally dropped into the garbage back home, and now we get a kind of archaeological dig of central Florida culture including a weeks worth of leftovers from Jimbobs Seafood Shack. While Mama does happen to find her diamond, Mace finds something else: the corpse of a suggestively clad young woman whose garb includes a black leather dog collar with silver spikes. This bondage fetish fashion is not the usual get-up in Himmarshee, the fictional but familiar small southern town in which the Mace Bauer mysteries are set. Ms. Sharps fans know that Mace will have a hard time keeping her nose out of the investigation, and that her talented meddling will outrage her fianc, Carlos Martinez, the hunky homicide detective who will do everything to keep Mace out of trouble and protect the professionalism of the investigation. Inevitably, Mace and Mama will be drawn further and further in. Furthermore, Mace will pursue another, possibly related mystery: the disappearance of her brother-in-law, Kenny. The timing is terrible, as Kennys wife Maddie is planning a big birthday party for him. Has sister Maddies vanished husband been fooling around with sexy Camilla, the deceased librarian found dead at the dump? Could he possibly be the murderer? There are plenty of hints that Kenny has been unfaithful. Conversation about these occurrences lets call it gossip soon occupies the town, especially in social settings such as the Hair Today Dyed Tomorrow salon, where pastel fashion plate Mama is a hair-coloring specialist. Revealing discussions and activities also take place at the Himmarshee Links Country Club and its bar, The Nineteenth Hole, where characters including golf pro Jason philJASONpkjason@comcast.net SHARP

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 C17 and bartender Angel (both, of course, immensely attractive and self-absorbed) behave somewhat suspiciously. So, in fact, does the new mayor of Himmarshee and his bossy wife. Not only is it rumored that they are active in the sexual fetish capers, but the mayor also seems to be encouraging outside investors to tie up land for development adjacent to Himmarshees idyllic nature park. Is he on the take? Is the park, where Mace works, in jeopardy? There are many issues to investigate, and Maces progress sometimes puts her health, even her life, in danger. Scenes of action and suspense abound in which Mace goes out of her way to speed up fact-finding that moves slowly under the careful, rule-bound methods that her detective fianc must employ. Whats particularly enjoyable about Mama Gets Trashed and about the Mace Bauer stories is the authors characterization of Mama, Mace and Maces sisters, Maddie and Marty. The relationships among these four women are splendidly drawn, with uproarious humor. Mama Rosalie, now married for the fifth time and so far just loving the adoration from hubby Sal, has established herself as the authority on everything from cooking to cosmetics to fashion to dealing with men. Addicted to offering unwanted opinions and passing unwanted judgments, she has a shrewd wisdom and personal power as well as several areas of social blindness. Forever bossing her daughters around and slinging insults, she has no idea about how hilarious her behavior can be. Albeit a grand manipulator, she is not, at bottom, mean-spirited. Well, not really. Mace (park ranger), Maddie (school principal) and Marty (the peacemaker) comprise a chorus of contrasting voices around Mama. Each in turn is favored or out of favor. Mace, in her role as narrator, has the last word. Shes also the one who zings Mama as good as she gets. Himmarshee itself is a powerful force in the novel, hanging onto Floridas working ranchland culture and resisting its retirement/resort notoriety. Its the unDisney. For laughs and excitement, surprises and scares, try out this latest entertainment by Ms. Sharp.

The Path She TookCATHY VOLSTORF, NAPLES The day had started out gray and rainy, and now the clouds seemed to have settled near the ground. The weather matched her mood; her heart was heavy with grief. There was something she had to do soon. Like today. She called up the stairs to him. Do you want to take Lucky for a walk in spite of the weather? He acquiesced as he had in most requests in their twenty-four year marriage. Lets go to the little park I love the tall trees. She picked up the leash and whistled for the dog, who came promptly, wagging his whole bottom at the thought of an excursion. As they trudged slowly toward their favorite benches she thought that the misty vista before her was rather like a stained glass window, the branches like the lead between the panes, fracturing but not obscuring the view. Enough soft light to compare to the clerestory windows of the Notre Dame de Paris. She felt in the great cathedrals as she always felt here: insignificant. They took their seats. Head bowed, she whispered, I want a divorce. AccessBY DOUG GOLDMAN, CAPE CORALGlens eyebrows glistened in the morning mist like the dew-laden blades of grass beneath his worn brown shoes. Shrouded in the monochromatic veil of shadows and light, he sat motionless. He sat as he did most mornings, waiting. He waited for nature to reveal herself. He waited for the rays of the rising sun to pierce the layers of gossamer that whisped around him. Always uncomfortable with hard lines, he saw them as roadblocks to revelation. The soft focus of the mist was soothing. Everything seemed more accessible. He believed that his chance to grasp what he needed most, must lie in that split second of transition from pastel to vibrancy, much like the elusive green flash at the moment of an ocean sunset. For the past seven years, Glen sat vigilantly yet peacefully, prepared for the moment that would set him free. This sanctuary was her favorite place. It is here where he felt the warmth of her kindness, saw the glow of her smile, and heard the music of her laughter. Glen couldnt understand why he was still here and she wasnt. But, he never gave up hope. This is where he needed to be. Startled, Glen looked up. A woman he had never seen before, sat opposite him, paused, smiled, then rose to her feet and left. Glen, lay motionless on the dew-laden blades of grass in the morning mist. Slowly, the mist dissolved into the vibrancy of the day.

FLORIDA WEEKLYC20 WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 KOVEL: ANTIQUESFabric toys hold value, beauty even when theyre unassembledOur Victorian ancestors made many of the toys their children played with. Inexpensive printed fabrics were designed to be cut out and sewn into dolls, games or toys. The fabric usually pictured all the parts of a colorful toy. Printed instructions explained how to assemble the pieces and, if necessary, how to stuff it. Weve seen stuffed Christmas stockings made from prints that featured Santa, evergreens and other Christmas decorations. There were many versions of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. A similar game made in about 1900, called The Monkey Donation Party Game, was made from a white fabric with a black printed monkey holding a stitchedon circular piece with the words Please put a penny in the cap. During the first quarter of the 20th century, many manufactured fabrics could be made into advertising dolls. Printed fabric was inexpensive to make and to mail. An unusual printed toy of that period is a ball made of six colored oval pieces. Each piece pictures a baby holding a finished ball. It was made in 1900 by Art Fabric Mills, and the fabric included printed instructions and the words and music of a lullaby. A collector recently paid $165 for a homemade ball in unfaded condition, but the uncut pattern sells for more about $200 to $300. A flat piece of fabric can be framed and displayed on a wall. The assembled ball is less decorative. Q: I recently acquired an ornate, vintage dining room table with one leaf and five matching chairs. The wood is walnut. A paper label on two of the chairs reads Midwest Furniture & Chair Co. terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com This 7-inch fabric ball, stitched by hand in about 1900, recently sold for $165 at Keepers Antiques in Chichester, N.H.

A: Midwest Furniture & Chair Co. was in business in St. Joseph, Mo., in the 1920s. Your set would be worth more if you had a sixth chair. Sets by the same maker have sold recently for $450 and $675, but both had at least six chairs plus a sideboard or buffet. So your table and five chairs might sell for $200 or less. Q: My letter opener reads Pan-American Exposition, 1901 on the blade and has a picture of the fairs Electric Tower on the handle. The back has fruit and flower designs. Its silver-colored, but Im not sure if its sterling silver. Does it have any value? A: The Pan-American Exposition was held in Buffalo, N.Y., from May-November 1901. Many souvenir items were made picturing the buildings and other features of the fair. The Electric Tower was the tallest structure at the fair and was often pictured. Most souvenir items are silver plate, not sterling silver. Your letter opener is probably worth about $25. Q: A few years ago at a yard sale, I spotted a bronze-colored bust of a classical woman and instantly fell in love with her. Shes imprinted on the back with the artists signature, Henri Jacobs, and copyright 1904 by Napoleon Alliot. What can you tell me about it? A: Henri Jacobs (1864-1935), the Father of Belgian Art Nouveau, was an artist and architect. Napoleon Alliot was a sculptor who also had a foundry. Even though its not bronze, your bust could sell at auction for more than $1,000.

The other reason this piece came to mind is the time period, she says, adding The Medium has a very Halloween-ish story to it about a lady who is a fraud, conjuring up dead spirits. But by the end of the opera, she actually believes she is being contacted by ghosts, which drives her crazy. Not your grandmas operaWith its emphasis on the theatrica and the acting, its hoped that The Telephone/ The Medium will appeal to younger audiences and theater lovers. Its not a stand-and-sing opera, Ms. Pearce says. Theres a lot of movement and no long sections of solos and duets. Its very conversational much more like a play where (the characters are) always interacting. Mr. Danni is an ideal director for the piece because of his theatrical credentials, she adds. We hope that a lot of people who enjoy his productions at TheatreZone will want to come and experience this show. Mr. Danni last worked with Opera Naples in late 2011, as stage director of the Opera Naples/TheatreZone joint production of Showboat. He has worked as a musician in New York City for such Broadway shows as Chicago, Grand Hotel, Miss Saigon and Les Miserables, and he also has an extensive background as a conductor, leading the orchestras for national tours of Barnum and Les Miserables. Returning to the opera world is wonderful to me because everything I do is rooted in the love of music, he says. I love doing both mediums theater and opera. Anytime you can place music within dramatic content, its very powerful. This will be Ms. Gayers first appearance in a full Opera Naples production, although the actress-singer has performed in many of the companys concerts over the years. She has also acted on television and in films. Aside from Follies, shes had major roles in other New York plays as well as productions in Pittsburgh, where she obtained a bachelors degree in acting and musical theater from Carnegie Mellon University. It was Ms. Pearce, Ms. Gayers voice teacher from the time she was 11 or 12, who lured her back home to perform. She called me a couple of months ago saying they were doing The Medium, and I leapt at the chance to play Monica, Ms. Gayer says. One of the first arias Steffanie and I ever worked on was from The Medium, so it is near and dear to me. Conductor for The Telephone/The Medium is Maestro Joseph Mechavich. The eight-member cast includes mezzosoprano Sondra Kelly in the lead as Baba, the gypsy fortuneteller, whom Ms. Pearce singled out for praise. Were very privileged to have as our lead character, someone who has been in more than 200 productions at The Metropolitan Opera.

It got me to wondering what his ex-wife, Jennie Garth, is up to n ow? Holly U., Tampa, Fla.A: Jennie is in talks to co-star in a new sitcom for ABC Family with former Beverly Hills, 90210 costar Tori Spelling. The pilot is called Mystery Girls, and its based on a story that Tori co-wrote with screenwriter Shepard Boucher. According to Us Weekly magazine: Mystery Girls is a comedy about a former starlet (Tori) who starts solving crimes with her former mystery-TV-show co-star (Jennie) after a witness to a crime refuses to talk to anyone except the infamous Mystery Girls. And although I think Us meant to use the word notorious and not infamous, I think you get the idea of what the sitcom is about. Q: Now that Breaking Bad is over, whats next for Bryan Cranston? Donald F., via e-mailA: The in-demand actor has loaned his voice to the H2 original series Big History. H2 an offshoot of the History Channel will premiere the 10-hour series on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 10 p.m. ET. Big History will dare to reveal one grand unified theory for how every event throughout history is connected. Each episode will begin with an iconic topic from the pages of traditional history, such as the Great Pyramids, Titanic or the American Revolution, but then will spin into surprising journeys through other fields, weaving together insights and evidence from various disciplines such as astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, anthropology, history and economics. Big History will pull together the puzzle pieces from all 16 half-hour episodes into an epic twohour finale, revealing the unifying link among all events. I was asked to be the voice of 13.7 billion years of history, Mr. Cranston said. Sure, Ive got the time give or take a billion years. As I read the material, I realized that this new series gives a surprising and unique look at our world. Im excited to be a part of it. Q: Whats next for Christian Bale? Barry T., MinneapolisA: Of Christians current projects, the one I am most eager to see is the gritty thriller called Out of the Furnace, which opens Dec. 6. Boasting an all-star cast of Christian, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Casey Affleck, Willem Dafoe, Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard, the story centers on Russell Baze (Christian), whose younger brother, Rodney (Casey), mysteriously disappears. When law enforcement fails to (or is too afraid to) follow through, Russell decides to search for justice himself. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

VINOTry some downright scary wines for a ghoulishly fun HalloweenWhile kids focus on candy at Halloween, adult treats should be less sweet and pack a bit more voltage. So do your part and hand out the goodies to the door-to-door ghouls and goblins who come calling, then break out the grownup beverages and have a bewitching evening of your own. Finding something suitable to drink on Halloween is pretty easy. This is not the time for serious wine; its the time for a wine with an appropriately demonic name. Following are some fitting party wines, with descriptions from their websites: Casillero del Diablo Carmenere, Concha y Toro, Rapel Valley, Chile: The beautiful vineyards of Casillero del Diablo are home to some of the finest wines in the world. But few outsiders know the dark secret that lies beneath them. For the locals say that in the depths of the cellar lives the Devil himself. A tale so infamous, they named the wine Casillero del Diablo, the Devils Cellar. This devilishly tasty signature red is richly colored, with aromas and flavors of red fruits, chocolate and coffee. Priced at about $15. Headless Red, Ash Hollow Winery, Walla Walla, Washington: The label features a headless rider galloping through the forest at midnight. Headless Red is a sinfully delicious blend of ... Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon ... hand harvested before dusk from Ash Hollows Estate Vineyard. The wine carries aromatics of dark raspberry and bing cherries with whispering hints of earth, heady spices, with a subtle oak finish. Perfect for pairing with dark chocolate (probably stolen from your kids goodies bag). Priced at about $21. Poizin, Armida Winery, Dry Creek Valley, California: Poizin, the wine to die for! Simply delicious Sonoma County zinfandel in a spectacular skull-and-crossbones package. A blend of zinfandel and petite syrah, the regular bottling is priced at $25 and the reserve bottling comes complete with its own wooden coffin for $60. If you need to recover the day after Halloween, its sibling, the Antidote, a blend of white grapes (mostly pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc) for about $20. River of Skulls 2010 Mourvedre, Twisted Oak Winery, Calaveras County, California: With a name like River of Skulls, you know it has to be good... An ankle bone of cherry aromas is connected to the shin bone of blackberries, which connects to the knee bone of spice and perfume. The knee bone is connected to the leg bone of cherry, blackberry and black pepper flavors, which connects to the hip bone, back bone and neck bone of a nice long vanilla finish. Oh Dem Skulls! Priced at $39, the suggested food pairing on the website is dead people. Seriously. Skeleton Wines Gruner Veltliner and Blauer Zweigelt (red), Austria: This one is neck and neck with the Headless Red for the best bottle, displaying a drunken skeleton sitting against a barrel with a wine glass in hand. Priced at about $10. Slaughterhouse Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, California: The name of this wine is chilling enough. The label features the dilapidated slaughterhouse on the California vineyard where this wine is produced. Although the Rutherford winery is a small operation, this is some very serious wine, with the vineyard planted by Tuck Beckstoffer. If you find it, expect to pay $70 or more. The Velvet Devil Merlot, Charles Smith Wines, Washington State: Every good Halloween party needs a little devil, and this one is priced at less than $15. The website promises classic merlot aromas of dark cherries, cedar, pipe tobacco. Anise, stone and cherry blossoms. Yeah, believe it! Naughty and nice, a true Velvet Devil. Vampire Wines, Paso Robles, California: The website cites rumors that the winery is owned by vampires. There are, indeed, 12 Vampire wines from which to choose bottled under four labels: Vampire, Chateau de Vampire, Trueblood and Dracula. Featuring mostly red wines, the prices range from $13 to $35. Werewolf Cabernet Sauvignon, Transylv ania, Romania: A unique black bottle with a full moon and wolf scratches. Werewolf Cabernet Sauvignon is noticeable for its dark red color. It has a scent of bell peppers and spice. It has an imposing taste with good structure and fine tannins. Its priced at less than $10. Cover ups: If you cant find any of these scary bottles for your Halloween party or want to serve something from your own collection for Halloween, you can make your own ghoulish labels or buy some. I found some on Amazon. com bearing names such as: Ye Olde Spider Venom 1897, Rat Poisin, Doctor Rotguts Famous Embalming Juice 1907 (Crisp and Refreshing), and Zombie Virus Exquisitely Crafted from the Worlds Finest BRAINS. t g b H c jimMcCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 239-592-0050www.NoodlesCafe.com Independently Owned & Operated The OriginalSince 1991 ITALIAN FEAST FOR 2SERVED FAMILY STYLE$29.95Not valid with other coupons or discounts.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINE REVIEWRestoratives offers breakfast, lunch with handmade touchThe first unusual thing you will notice about Restoratives Caf is the name. As the menu explains, it derives from the French origin of the term restaurant, referring to the restorative powers of food specifically, the soups of an 18thcentury Parisian chef named Boulanger, according to the revered food encyclopedia Larousse Gastronomique. Soup is just one of the sources of sustenance at Restoratives Caf, which opened in the former Lush Bakery space in a plaza on the east side of U.S. 41 south of Estero Parkway and just north of Broadway in Estero. (Make note of the cross streets, because the restaurant itself is hard to spot while driving.) Chef Jay Gillmore, who trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Orlando and has worked at numerous Southwest Florida restaurants, launched this artsy little caf in August with his brother, Tim. With its chalkboard menu, rustic lumber and impressive wall of locally produced paintings, Restoratives has a do-it-yourself vibe backed by rock music that nonchalantly suggests this place has more hipster cred than your typical diner in the 239. The retro-cool green-bluebrown color scheme finds its way into graphic peacock-feather wallpaper and a lime-hued handmade wooden bench with a bed headboard for a back. There are only three or four greentopped tables and a few stools at the bar in the dining room, which could be a liability during season if the brothers want to do more than just serve takeout. With prices topping out at $7.50, they should expect to draw an enthusiastic lunch crowd. Breakfast and lunch are served six days a week from a short menu of sandwiches, salads, soups and breakfast items. Kids options include a Fluffernutter and a grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwich that sounds intriguing. Smoothies and juices are blended to order and available with an optional shot of vitamin B-12. We ordered at the counter, and the food was delivered in short order. Pineapple-kiwi ($3.25) was the juice of the day. It had a verdant brightness from the kiwi and a nice balance of sweet and tart. The soup du jour was stuffed pepper, but we decided to go with tomato-herb and Snake Bite Cheddar ($2.50 cup, $4 bowl) from the regular menu. The former embodied light, sweet, pure tomato essence with a grassy flourish provided by a sprinkling of fresh herbs that the chef snipped from a box near the front windows. The lush texture was light on the palate, not heavy like most tomato soups. The cheddar soup my companion ordered was blisteringly hot, which I didnt notice until the spoonful was in my mouth. Ouch! After it had cooled off for a while, we liked the cheesy richness and the interplay of smoky Guinness, barley and tangy cider (a snake bite is a beer drink made with equal parts stout and hard cider). Soup fanatics, and I know a few, are going to dig this place. And those who go for the greens will appreciate four salad selections including a Nicoise dressed with roasted red pepper vinaigrette. We were more attracted to the eight sandwich offerings, which include a Cuban and a Reuben, turkey meatloaf BLT and grilled cheese with add-ins that include bacon, tomato, avocado and ham. Ultimately, we settled on the torta ($6.50) and pork tacos ($6). The former was a toasted hoagie roll filled with juicy, tender beef brisket topped with melted queso blanco, pickled chilies, pico de gallo and sour cream. A black bean puree was smeared on the roll and provided a little earthiness. That might sound like a lot going on in one sandwich, but all the ingredients were perfectly proportioned; the brisket remained at the forefront, and all of the other goodies were equal supporting players in the background. This was just a well-conceived and well-executed sandwich, and it came with a mound of good-quality potato chips. The tacos sounded promising but did not quite live up to expectations. The slow-cooked pulled pork was succulent enough, with a hint of fresh lime juice and a smattering of salsa. But they were missing the spicy mango-chili sauce the menu promised, which would have raised them to a higher level of taco. In the end, they were good just not especially noteworthy. Homemade cookies and carrot cake are offered for dessert. The cake ($3.50 a slice), sheet-style not layered, was moist and loaded with shredded carrots. It was warmed up, surprisingly, which somewhat melted the sweet cream-cheese frosting. Even if it comes out of the fridge a bit too firm, it might be best not to reheat it.
