DOUG MACGREGOR ILLUSTRATIONLast spring, legislators moved to shut down Internet cafes and senior arcades with haste. Within three months, a niche industry that bloomed in recent years by catering mostly to seniors disappeared. A law passed in April did not ban the businesses, but it did ban cash prizes, gift cards and machines that too closely resembled slot machines. Now a number of venues are reemerging with retrofitted machines, giving away linens and electronics, playing by the rules. Bad politics shut the arcades down, says Karen Kopp, owner of The Vegas Experience, a senior arcade in South Fort Myers. Ms. Kopp has been in business for eight years. She shut her arcade down for two months immediately following the newOB NAPIOR MAY BE THE LAST PERSON YOU see for 50 miles, or the first in 50 miles, depending on which direction youre heading.

Scan to see Dr. Lam talk about foot & ankle trauma and the latest in technology COMMENTARYPaean to the utterly uselessWe must now celebr ate the utterly useless. At least once a day or once in a lifetime, we must now champion the unproductive, the mute or voiceless, even the silent. We must nourish, in effect, an unemployed word, jobless in the dictionary of daily life. And whats more useless than jobless? When I think of useless, I think of the blue in skies. What job does blue have? I think of love not simply the imperative need to reproduce, but love. Completely useless. I think of a breeze, a necktie, a painting, a musical note, the stars, a piano concerto, the cinnamon-chestnut hue of a good gumbo roux. The liberal arts. All of them are jobless and thus useless, by the insistent do-something, get-a-job definition of American culture. So in practical terms and like all art, theyre entirely unnecessary at least at first glance. But somehow they remain indispensable to living. Perhaps, somehow, theyre the key to our survival as a species. This ruminative hiccup was brought upon me by a collision of coincident moments, all of them chunked like sausage into a pot-boil of ideas about education. Newt Gingrich, I learned, has said that poor school children, the young teenagers, should become janitors in their schools, pulling themselves up from poverty by cleaning the schools in which they study, for money. That was one. Second, a well-known professor of environmental studies and politics at Oberlin suggests that without a comprehensive education in the arts and sciences for a lot more people, we might not make it as a species. The kind of education, he says, that allows us to make connections between seemingly unrelated notions. Thats some real cause for optimism, isnt it? Well, no. But oddly enough, it is cause for hope, he says. The mans name is David Orr, and he put it like this, in an essay called Optimism and Hope in a Hotter Time: People must see the connections between what they drive and the wars we fight, the stuff they buy and crazy weather, the politicians they elect and the spread of poverty and violence. They must be taught to see connections between climate, environmental quality, security, energy use, equity, and prosperity. They must be asked to think and to see. As quaint and nave as that may sound, people have done it before and it has worked. Thinking and seeing. Are they genetic equipment, like blue eyes and blond hair, or do you learn them by studying the physics of stars, or the violin, or the art and application of English words, or the geology and biology of the southern Everglades, or the classical Greek language all in one fell swoop? Theres a useless phrase for you: One fell swoop. Fell (a jobless word these days), means fierce or even savage at least as Billyboy Shakespeare employed it in the mouth of Macduff, who challenged the tyrant Macbeth. Its an old lesson they keep learning anew never go into politics unless you plan to shed blood. Here, Macduff has just been told that his family and servants have all been murdered.All my pretty ones?/ Did you say all? O hell-kite! All?/ What, all my pretty little chickens and their dam/At one fell swoop?Beautiful. But it didnt give me the answer to the question: What difference does knowing something useless make? So I picked a thing that seems, on the surface, to epitomize uselessness: classical Greek. And like many an insufferable pragmatist skeptically eyeballing his youngers, I asked my nephew, Nick Romeo, why the hell hes spending the last years of his 20s studying classical Greek when he could be out working in Walmart or something. Nick, by the way, is the writer of Driven: Six Incredible Musical Journeys. He can now read and write Greek almost as if he were born 5,000 miles away and 3,000 years ago. He is, after all, trying to make the connections. Put on your seat belt and hold on. Heres what he said: There are many ways to justify the study of classics and Ancient Greek in particular. One strong argument is that inflected languages like Greek and Latin are rigorous and complicated systems, and learning to master their rules sharpens our general mental acuity. Of course, Chinese and Arabic could plausibly do the same while also providing a more obvious utility in the world. But Greek and Latin are also eminently useful: Law or medical school would be made immeasurably easier by the study of both languages. Thats not only because of countless terms that derive from Greek and Latin, but also because the rigorous and systematic thinking of an Aristotle or Plato anticipates the forms of legal argument (Aristotle pioneered the study of formal logic) and the methods of scientific inquiry (both Plato and Aristotle are concerned with the quality of evidence and the validity of argument an argument is both valid and sound when it employs a non-fallacious form and also has verifiable propositions). But if we expand our notion of usefulness to include any tools that can help us flourish and be happy, the argument for studying classics becomes even stronger. The writing of Roman stoic philosophers like Marcus Aurelius or Seneca provided some of the best self-help advice ever penned long before the genre even existed. They provide practical advice on how to be happy with what we have and overcome the fear of death, two challenges which, if achieved, can transform quality of life. Because in one fell swoop were through, whether we transformed the quality of our lives or not whether we burned up the planet or not when death comes. Which happens to be the title of a poem by Mary Oliver and employed in part by humanities Professor Wendy Chase, to celebrate her graduates once at Edison State:When its over, I want to say, all my life/ I was a bride married to amazement./ I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. To consummate such a marriage, we must now celebrate the utte rly useless. A version of this column originally ran on Feb. 1, 2012. t m t t w rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

That fact has been borne out on several occasions over the last year on Marco Island, where a pair of American bald eagles make their home in a towering Australian pine on the 11.6-acre undeveloped tract known as the Marco Eagle Sanctuary. Loud explosions near their habitat can frighten the state and federally protected birds and lead them to abandon their nest, even if it contains eggs or fledglings. That is why U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service guidelines require fireworks displays to be at least a half-mile from an active bald eagle nest. On New Years Eve, for the fourth time since Christmas of 2012, fireworks were set off in the residential neighborhood that surrounds the sanctuary and for the second time, caused the majestic pair, dubbed Paleo and Calusa, to flee. As a result, the egg and fledgling they left behind evidently fell prey to a pred-THE MARCO EAGLE SANCTUARY / COURTESY PHOTO Paleo and Calusa in their nest on Marco Island.

Did anyone believe that President Barack Obama was passionately committed to the Afghanistan War that he escalated at the same time he announced a withdrawal date? If what Gates tells us isnt particularly new, it still packs a punch coming from such a highly placed, credible source. For Obama, Afghanistan is the insincere war. More than 1,500 troops have died there during his time in office almost three times as many as under George W. Bush yet by early 2011, the president had lost whatever faith he had in the war, according to Gates. In the telling of his former secretary of defense, Obama violated what should be the psychological Powell Doctrine: If you dont believe in it, dont fight it. John Kerry famously asked during the Vietnam War: How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake? Obama evidently has been asking men to die for what he considers a mistake for years now.As reported in the press, Gates describes a dawning realization at a March 2011 meeting in the situation room. As I sat there, he writes, I thought: The president doesnt trust his commander, cant stand (Afghan leader Hamid) Karzai, doesnt believe in his own strategy and doesnt consider the war to be his. For him, its all about getting out.This is the war that the president and other Democrats had long hailed as the good war. Candidate Obama made the first item in his proposed comprehensive strategy in the war on terror, getting out of Iraq and on to the right battlefield in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The president may have meant every word he said at the time, but his position also happens to have been politically convenient. It allowed him to promise a quick exit from one (very unpopular) war while still sounding tough on the other. He wasnt a stereotypical dove, but a nuanced, clear-eyed hawk. Once in office, the rhetoric came due. By all accounts, the president felt trapped by his own advocacy. He and his team resented the military for asking for more troops than he really wanted to send. He escalated by about 50,000 all told, anyway, although with an uncertain trumpet and a highly ambivalent spirit. If a president doesnt believe in a war, he is obviously less likely to see it through. The cost of liquidating our position in Iraq has been a resurgence of al-Qaida. If we pull out from Afghanistan right away, the Taliban will surely enjoy a similar windfall. Obama has a remarkable ability to create critical distance between himself and almost anything. Here is a conflict that began with an invasion that he supported, that he consistently called for escalating and that he ordered tens of thousands of additional troops to go fight, yet he resisted taking ownership of it. I never doubted Obamas support for the troops, Gates writes, only his support for their mission. Stranger words may never have been written about an American president. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. GUEST OPINIONRemembering the Holocaust BY AMY SNYDERSpecial to Florida Weekly On Jan. 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated the Nazi death camp called Auschwitz. Although several camps had been liberated before this, and certainly after, this event is the one that stands out in the minds of the public today. Auschwitz represents the worst of humanity and is held up as a symbol of evil to be fought against at all costs. In November of 2005, the United Nations Outreach Program was created to remind the world of the events and lessons of the Holocaust in order to prevent future atrocities. The U.N. designated Jan. 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day a time for the international community to reaffirm that the Holocaust, which resulted in the murder of one-third of the Jewish people along with countless members of other minorities, will forever be a warning to all people of the dangers of hatred, bigotry, racism and prejudice. Each year, the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, along with many other community organizations, presents a program to our local community to commemorate, memorialize and educate. In the past, weve been blessed to work with Doug Renfroe and Voices of Naples, as well as Marian Dolan and The Choir Project, presenting our programs at Naples United Church of Christ, and most recently on the lawn at Mercato. For 2014, the museum is pleased to work with The Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Florida Gulf Coast University to present Hannibal Travis, associate professor of law at Florida International University. Professor Travis will present Prior Warning of the Holocaust: Did the Armenian Genocide Inspire Hitler? at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, in Edwards Hall at FGCU. Also in recognition of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Holocaust Museum will present Wolfgang Vogel, a former member of Hitler Youth, at 6:45 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27. Mr. Vogel will discuss the dangers of propaganda and the lessons for today. Doors will open at 5:30 pm for people to tour the museum. The study of the Holocaust, from the perspective of the museum, is not only to help us understand the historical events, but also to inspire us to be better people. We cannot know where weve come from or how to move forward without knowing our personal, national and international history. A basic education in the events and people involved in the Holocaust can inspire us to do good in ways we may not have considered before. However, as we will hear from Professor Travis and Mr. Vogel, knowledge of past events can also lead to a reoccurrence of the evils of which humanity is capable. It is our job as responsible citizens, parents and educators to lead our young people down a path of respect and compassion. It is not a path necessarily of tolerance and acceptance, because tolerance and acceptance of false and harmful ideas is often the beginning of genocide. It is rather, the path of discernment and truth. This is not an easy path, but the only one that provides us with the necessary tools to defeat evil. As we approach the 69th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, may we each endeavor to make our lives the light that overcomes the darkness. We invite you to visit the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida on Sunday, Jan. 26, as there will be no admission fee in recognition of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Amy Snyder is the executive director of the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. The museum is at 4670 Tamiami Trail N. Regular hours are 12:30-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday (guided tours at 1 and 2:30 p.m.) and 1-4 p.m. SaturdaySunday (guided tour at 1:30 p.m.). The museum is closed Saturday, Jan. 25, for a special event.

Flip-flops and swim trunks to church, pajamas to the movie, T-shirts and jeans to formal receptions, skimpy tops and ultra short-shorts with biker heels to Christmas dinner with the grandparents. Is it just me, or is any outfit suddenly fitting for any occasion? Jacqueline Murray, a national expert on the effect of dress, once said, Your clothing says more about you in the first three seconds than you can take back in the next 30 minutes. From what Ive seen lately, make that 30 years! Maybe its the mothers who look as though theyve just come from a deepcleaning project at home. Someone should give them a sign: Will work for a decent set of clothes. Maybe its the Facebook fashion ala Mark Zuckerberg who, despite having $10 billion to his name, just cant shrug his grubby T-shirt and dirty jeans. Or maybe, God forbid, we just dont care anymore even about ourselves. Whatever it is, clothes not only reflect the person wearing them, they affect the person wearing them. Dress like a slob, youll do slobby things pick your teeth at a fine restaurant, perhaps, or use language that is neither necessary nor tasteful to make your unnecessary and tasteless remarks. Or treat the people around you, even the ones youre with, with casual indifference as you fiddle with your smartphone because, like the clothes youre wearing, you couldnt care less. And from there its just a baby step to caring less about how often you shave or bathe or brush your teeth and comb your hair. Go ahead, scoff, but this is true: You actually do become the clothes you wear. Its proven. Men walk taller in a suit or a tuxedo. Women move more graciously in a beautiful dress and appropriate heels. Etiquette, which is nothing more than treating fellow human beings with courtesy and respect, replaces rudeness and contempt. Table manners suddenly step up to the plate. Conversation itself rises to the level of polite, if not sincere and engaged. People take on what was once known as demeanor. Not that any of this matters, but for those for whom it does matter, there is a silver lining to this epidemic and the results can be spectacular. Precisely because so many people are dressing so poorly, people who dress well are getting noticed in a positive sense like never before, and that gives them a tremendous advantage not only in their careers and their social lives, but in their self-esteem. Again, you become what you wear. So next time you need to run a quick errand, even if its just to Home Depot, check your look. If the thought of running into someone you care about dressed as you are causes you to cringe with embarrassment, take a few minutes to throw on something worthy of public display. I assure you, it will make all the difference in how you feel as well as how you interact with others.

DOUG MACGREGOR ILLUSTRATION RIDEFrom page 1question or ring up a soda, dispatching customers with polite, easy efficiency. The South Florida-themed souvenirs sell well, the taxidermy alligator heads most of all. About two-thirds of Mr. Napiors customers are either getting on or off the Alley, he estimates. Half are in a hurry. From there, the highway turns into a toll road: four lanes shooting arrowstraight, east and west across the wilderness of the Everglades. The 75-mile stretch has been called Alligator Alley ever since it opened in 1968 as a twolane state road. Todays version opened in 1993. It ends (or begins) in Weston, taking travelers on to the greater Miami and Fort Lauderdale areas. Known for being the speediest route across the peninsula, the Alley splits two distinct ecosystems the Everglades and the freshwaters of the Big Cypress Swamp. Beyond the roadway, there are hidden ghost orchids, panthers, alligators and invasive pythons. It took months and truckloads of dynamite to blast out the trail. Nearly two decades later, planners reworked the road to make it safer for people and animals, and better for the Everglades. But today, drivers reaching triple-digit miles per hour arent that uncommon. After paying a $3 toll, a driver can end up in Miami a couple of hours later, without noticing the National Panther Wildlife Refuge, Big Cypress National Preserve, and the greater Everglades, a vast wilderness inhabited permanently only by wildlife and the Seminole and Miccosukee Indian Tribes. There are numerous exit points into Big Cypress for hiking, hunting and fishing, and scenes of breathtaking beauty if the trip is at least as much about the journey as the destination. People drive it for all kinds of reasons. Mitchell Austin of Punta Gorda uses the Alley to get to continuing education courses on the other coast, and to go to sporting events like Miami Dolphins games. Its this little ribbon of perceived civilization because youre on this superhighway, said Mr. Austin, a 39-year-old city planner. But right off it youre in the wilds. Youre not the top of the food chain out there.Pull off the road, and escapeAt 4:07 p.m. on a Sunday in midJanuary, a transparent white moon hung above the road. You pass exit 80 at the State Road 29 overpass. If you get off, signs point to main entry points for Big Cypress National Preserve (729,000 acres) and Everglades National Park (1.5 million acres). Down the road, mile marker 70 has stops for both east and westbound traffic. There are no bathroom facilities, but there is a place to get out and stretch as well as access to Big Cypress National Preserve. About a quarter mile in on a trail, a deers footprint was printed in the mud, and the sun was dropping below the tree line. It leads into the Turner River Unit of the preserve, which contains more than 170 miles of trails. Fort Myers-based town planner Bill Spikowski remembers stopping there once with his son. We walked two or three miles that day. We probably saw 50 alligators sunning themselves, he recalls. There is also access to the preserve at mile marker 51 for westbound travelers. Once the state is finished refurbishing a rest stop later this year, there will be access at mile marker 63, said Bob DeGross, spokesperson for the Big Cypress National Preserve. There are hiking, hunting, fishing and camping opportunities. Driving across (the Alley), you go through two distinct regions of the Everglades ecosystem, he explained. As you drive from Fort Lauderdale west to about mile marker 48 or so youre in the open sawgrass prairies of the greater Everglades. And then west of mile marker 48 or so you get up into the Big Cypress, and so you go from this vast open area of the Everglades to more of a mosaic of several different habitats. Its really a remote region that people dont really think about. They just drive 90 miles per hour through it. But if they really take their time to look around, theyll find that its a unique area that provides an opportunity of escape from the very large urban areas on the east and west sides of it.At the rest stopThe only fully equipped rest stop to gas up or eat on the Alley is off exit 49 at Snake Road, 50 miles from Mr. Napior at the BP station. Its run by the Miccosukee Tribe on its largest reservation, totaling 74,812 acres, according to the tribe website. The Business Council, which handles public relations, didnt respond to a request for comment. The Tribe is not known for responding to requests from journalists. The reservation lies north and south of the Alley. The tribe protects 55,000 acres as wetlands, with another 20,000 reserved for development. Of that, 13,000 acres is leased for cattle grazing. The rest includes the service station and Miccosukee police substation. Along Josie Billie Highway, about a 20-minute drive from the Miccosukee stop, youll find the Seminole Indians Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki museum, boardwalk and Bob Napior manages the BP food mart and service station just before the toll onto I-75. Alligator Alley was expanded to four lanes in 1993.

other attractions. The gently winding drive goes through countryside. At 5:16 p.m. sprawling fields with cows were lit in hazy gold. On the other side of the road, vultures pecked at the lifeless body of a small alligator. At 5:49 p.m. a family watched football at the Seminole gift shop and convenience store. A teenage couple looked at clothes, bows and arrows. On a bulletin board outside, a swamp buggy was for sale for $35,000. My loss is your gain, the ad read. Merging back on to the Alley, it was early night with planes, stars and planets in the sky. Surprisingly, the soundtrack to the drive along the Alley came in clearly on the radio: Blurred Lines, Red Red Wine, Every Breath You Take, Stayin Alive, something by Chopin, and a country song. Take the keys to my heart and the keys to my car and just drive, the singer moaned. Driving at night, the wilderness seemed deeper, and the highway narrower, the traveler guided by lights as electronic message boards blinked the minutes to the next exit. First, strip off the muckIn spite of fierce opposition, the original Alley, two-lane State Road 84, opened in February 1968. The (American Automobile Association) thought up the name of Alligator Alley to express supreme contempt for a road which it said was designed with a flagrant disregard for essential safety; that didnt to where its proponents said it would go; and that charged a toll besides, wrote August Burghard in his 1969 account, Alligator Alley: Floridas Most Controversial Highway. But 10 years before that, the Seminole Indians supported construction of the Alley and granted a right of way across their reservation. (Later, the Miccosukee Tribe split from the Seminole.) Collier and Broward counties in 1961 pledged gasoline tax funds to guarantee construction bonds. Clearing the way for the road was a tremendous effort. The Alley required a truckload of dynamite for rock blasting each week. Huge draglines, walking on special mats, inched their way out into the sawgrass to strip off the muck, Mr. Burghard wrote. Barges carrying dynamite drills floated in behind these draglines to blast out the lime rock of the Glades floor. Finally, the highway was laid, providing a farm-to-market route for agricultural products and a swift, time-saving path across peninsula Florida for tourists. The road was ... a badly needed transportation link between two of our states fastest growing areas, said then Road Commissioner Jay Brown. The Alley today still fulfills those needs, but there were major changes in the late 1980s. The state undertook a widening project, making it four lanes, two each way. The new highway opened in 1993.Catching cars in the canalsJim Noth remembers when the Alley was widened. As a two-lane road, It was very dangerous, said Mr. Noth, vice president and transportation director with the West Palm Beach engineering firm Erdman Anthony. People would get behind trucks so you start getting more aggressive trying to pass. And if you dropped off the road, you basically just dropped off into the swamps. But it wasnt just extra lanes that made the modern version a success. Mr. Noth recalls walking into the office of an old colleague who was working on the new design for FDOT. He saw a map on the wall with unusual lines drawn on it that marked the paths of panthers collared and tracked as they crossed the Alley. The state used the data to help design points where wildlife could cross under the road. Fences guide them to those points. There was a lot that went into that that I dont think people really recognize, Mr. Noth said. It also improved the flow of water through the Everglades, which is often likened to one big, slow-moving river, from north to south. The old one probably functioned more as a dam in the Everglades than anything else, Mr. Noth said. The new I-75, what we call Alligator Alley, addresses those kinds of things; (it) addresses, if you will, sins of the past. More recently, cables running along the bottom of the fenceline are designed to help stop cars from sliding into a canal. As soon as a car runs into them, FDOT employees who monitor traffic from remote locations are alerted and strobe lights on the road begin flashing. Adding the cables, said FDOT spokesperson Debbie Tower, was in response to vehicles and people that went missing on the Alley, who left for their destination and simply didnt arrive. There were times they veered into canals, which can be 30 feet deep in places. These cars would disappear sometimes into the canal, literally submerge and disappear, Ms. Tower said. Now, the minute that happens, we know it. Dinner and a sunsetCapt. Rhett Morris and his wife JoEllen, owners of Beyond Borders Outfitters in Punta Gorda, often take the Alley to visit family and to vacation in Key West. Mr. Morris used to go hunting and fishing in wetlands near the Alley. He recalls sitting in a canoe in a canal one morning, counting alligators. You could easily count 200 alligators, he said. It was the most incredible number of alligators in one short distance. They gravitate toward that canal when the Glades are drying up in the dry season. On one trip he was waiting on a trail for a wild hog. It spooked before reaching him, and as it ran, a panther began its chase, parallel to the hog.

(The panther) was running so fast it just happened to hit that open ground in a whole leap and it never touched the ground, he said. I listened to it catch the hog, 30 or 40 yards away, which I might add was very brutal and vicious sounding. He left the hunting site and headed back to civilization, hoping the cat was full. Still, after witnessing the harrowing scene, he continues to enjoy the drive across the Alley. It can be very scenic in the heart of the summer because of the monster thunderheads that build up around the area and watching those as you drive across can be pretty neat, he said. There are some instances where youll run into an approaching storm with the sun setting in the west on the way home. Its totally different watching them cross the beautiful grass prairie.If you blink, you might miss itSome drivers say they rarely see gators on the Alley, while others have more luck. It depends on different factors, such as the time of year, said Mr. DeGross of Big Cypress Preserve. Along with other wildlife, they may concentrate in canals or near water in the winter when its dry. If its cold outside they may stay down at the bottom. It also helps if youre familiar with the landscape, and of course if you slow down and stop at an access point. Panthers, black bear, coyote, bobcats and white-tailed dear make their home in the preserve. Birds along the Alley include great blue herons, American egrets, ibis, little blue herons, wood storks and snow egrets. Especially in the evening, large flocks of white birds may roost in groups, and it looks like snow on the trees, Mr. DeGross said. The road is surrounded by herbaceous vegetation such as lilies and brooms hedge, and of course, sawgrass. The sprawling cypress forests go dormant in the winter as the days become shorter. A wispy brown color in January, theyre often studded with nest-like clumps of bromeliads or air plants (not parasitic) that cling to the trees as support. (Cypress trees) usually begin to leaf out again depending on a number of factors but typically around middle to late March, Mr. DeGross said. You can see bears, tooThese days, youre as likely to see a state trooper as you are an alligator on the Alley. Speeding is the biggest problem, and Florida Highway Patrol is aggressive about keeping a presence and enforcement. Distracted driving texting, picking something up from the floor, chatting with other people in the car exacerbates the problem. (It) is in a sense a true limited access highway, said Trooper Ken Watson with the FHP. It is a straightaway. Thats where we have our issues with really high speed. The average speed throughout I-75 is 80 mph, Mr. Watson estimates, or 10 miles over the limit. It seems to be consistent throughout the whole state, he said. Now you go to Alligator Alley, you can crank it up a little bit more. We have more triple digit speeds on a daily basis on that stretch of highway. Because its such a high rate of speed if you have failure of any of your wheels, youre going to be flipping, spin-RIDEFrom page 9 Whats been said Please Lord, Ive been a good man. So if I get cotton-mouth bit, or attacked by some of Oscar the Alligators brothers, and if I get to that Big Job in the Sky, oh, please, Lord, let it be on dry land. Amen! Prayer by an anonymous construction worker on the Alley, from August Burghards 1969 book, Alligator Alley The Alley is the fastest. If youve gotta get somewhere fast, you take it. Thats why I think its kind of unpleasant to drive. Bill Spikowski Fort Myers-based town planner There were what Ill call lilies, small bushes, along the side of the road as I was heading toward Miami-Dade County about five to 10 minutes away from the toll booth. I noticed the lilies were covered in something gauzy and damp spiderwebs. Mile after mile of thousands tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of spiderwebs. It was beautiful how they went on and on, the sunrise bouncing off of them translucent nets catching and warping yellows and oranges. I thought about this innumerable army of spiders keeping the mosquito population under control. Osvaldo Padilla, editor Fort Myers Florida WeeklyThat idea of connecting places to enable mobility and economic growth are certainly critical It would be a much different road if there were opportunities for development along it. Steven E. Polzin, P.h.D. director of mobility policy, Center for Urban Transportation Research Honestly I find that people drive on that road about the same speed they drive on I-75 through this state. Youve got your people puttering along at 65 miles per hour and people going more or less the speed limit and people flying 90 plus miles per hour. Mitchell Austin city planner for Punta Gorda in the knowning, the good word to use would be a catastrophic crash. Chances of survival are slim. Mr. Watson remembers pulling over a motorcyclist riding with his girlfriend. They were doing 136 miles per hour, he said; fast enough that you could crash just from turning your head the wrong way into the wind. Almost all the crashes on the Alley are due to human factors, he stresses. In other words, theyre preventable. Nearly three-quarters of crashes on the Alley occur in clear weather, and the majority occurs between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. Either someone is looking at their phone, theyre not paying attention or because its such a linear road people have a tendency to go into a kind of trance, he said.

She reopened in September. It could have been a win-win situation for everybody, Ms. Kopp says of the legislation. They could have passed a moratorium, not let any new arcades open up, but let existing arcades conduct business as usual. Then everybody would be happy. Seniors would be happy. Owners would be happy. The shopping centers we rent from would be happy. The state would be happy with the taxes we pay. Beyond that, Ms. Kopp does not care to say much. Shes just trying to stay in business, keep her employees employed. She doesnt want any heat, especially during season, when shes trying to make enough money to cover past months where business was sluggish. Were playing their game, she says. Paying out gifts, not gift cards. Playing by the rules. On the states east coast, dozens of senior arcades have opened or reopened recently. Charlotte County Planning and Zoning Official Shawn Cullinan does not know of any Internet cafes or senior arcades that have reopened in his area. He remembers one scenario where a wedding hall came in seeking a permit to play bingo, possibly looking for a loophole in the law. He says whenever a scenario sounds questionable, his office consults the sheriffs department. We dont want to permit something thats going to be shut down by the sheriff, he says. The atmosphere right now is that youre welcome to try and open up, but if youre deemed to be outside the law, you will be shut down. Mr. Cullinan thinks a lot of people dont feel its worth the risk because it takes a good amount of money to open up these cafes and arcades. But he remembers when these venues were everywhere, every street corner, every strip mall, like the new e-cigarette stores popping up all over the place now, he says. Essentially, these places were selling Internet time, thats why theyre mostly called Internet cafes, says Mr. Cullinan. People would go in and pay for Internet time, but they did not sign into Yahoo and check their email. They would play games that looked suspiciously like slot machines. When the legislature realized what was going on, they took a hard stance on it. If Internet cafes and senior arcades are finding ways to exist within the law, it begets the question: Will legislators find ways to crack down on them again? Our Senate Committee on Gaming is currently engaged in a comprehensive review of the statues involving gaming in Florida, including the provisions related to the types of illegal gaming devices which were prevalent at Internet cafes across Florida prior to the 2013 law, Katie Betta, communications deputy chief for Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples, who leads the Senate Gaming Committee, writes in an email from Tallahassee. Members of the committee are aware of reports regarding certain games and prizes that have arisen in the months following the effective date of the law and have received thousands of comments from constituents, including local law enforcement, caf operators, advocates and those opposed to Internet cafes and other forms of gaming as they traveled the state last fall and via our Senate Gaming website, she continues. At this time, it would be premature to speculate as to how this particular issue may be addressed in legislation during the upcoming session; however, it has and will continue to be part of the discussion as the Senators work on a comprehensive gaming policy for our state. The Senate Gaming Committee may have received thousands of comments concerning Internet cafes, but Sgt. David Velez of the Lee County Sheriffs Office has not seen any reports of such venues reemerging. All these businesses have been pretty compliant once the law went into effect, Sgt. Velez says. It does not seem to be a problem here. ARCADEFrom page 1 OSVALDO PADILLA / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Vegas Experience complies with the law by handing out prizes, not gift cards.

That result mirrors what occurred the previous New Years Eve, w hen a cannon and fireworks set off near the sanctuary frightened the birds, which are protected under state and federal laws, away from their nest and eggs. Eagle eggs cannot survive more than a couple of hours unprotected, says Linda Turner, the foundations director of operations. Unfortunately, and much to Marco Islands loss, the eggs failed. In an effort to be proactive and build awareness prior to last July 4, the foundation distributed fliers to 400 homes near the sanctuary that warned of the danger loud fireworks present for the sanctuarys eagles and asking that they not be used. Ms. Turner says that effort intensified in December, with fliers hand delivered to 1,000 homes near the sanctuary, letters to the editor and stories on the subject published in Marcos three weekly newspapers, along with a notice posted on the homepage of the citys website. Mr. Way says the alleged culprit this New Years Eve was a European visitor who is renting a home on Century Drive, around the corner from the sanctuary. A flier was delivered to the homes mailbox, he adds. Foundation member Jon Busch says he and his wife Suzanne were among the neighborhood residents who approached the suspected offender to ask him to stop after 15-20 minutes of discharging fireworks into the air. Mr. Busch claims the man was unconcerned when he was told about the effect on nesting eagles and their offspring. They said they were able to buy the fireworks so they should be able to fire them off and who were we to tell them not to shoot them off, he says. The Marco Island police were called and responded to the scene, but did not cite the alleged offender. The Marco Island Police Department says an investigation into the incident is ongoing. Marcos eagle sanctuary has become a popular site with visitors and residents since the majestic birds began nesting there sometime in the 1980s. We have a very unique situation that the eagles have chosen to be in this area, says Mr. Way, who notes that fireworks that discharge into the air are illegal in Florida. We have to abide by the rules that protect the birds. Mr. Way says local police can cite offenders for noise and fireworks violations and that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission can also levy penalties. Its a federal offense, punishable by a fine of between $5,000 and $50,000 and five years in jail, if it can be proven that fireworks were the initial reason for the loss of the clutch (eggs) of eagles, he adds. Both Mr. Way and Ms. Turner say the foundation will continue its efforts to broaden community awareness and cooperation and to strengthen enforcement by Marco Island police. In my thoughts, we need to be more proactive, Mr. Way says. But if the proactive approach doesnt work, then we must penalize these people. If we dont make sure these people are accountable and if the people dont know that people have been held accountable, then no ones going to stop. Paleo and Calusa still frequent the sanctuary, and the bald eagle nesting season in the South can last from late September through November, so the foundation is hopeful the eagles will again produce offspring before years end. We know that she doesnt have eggs in there right now, says Mr. Way. But weve seen them courting each other and theyre active, so theres a possibility that well get a second chance at another clutch.

City invites input on Lake Manor plansThe city of Naples seeks input from the public as it formulates a plan to restore Lake Manor to a healthy, attractive storm-water feature for the surrounding community. The lake stores and directs storm water to the Gordon River in order to mitigate flooding, reduce flow during heavy rains and reduce the discharge of pollutants to state waterways. Each of these functions will be restored with the removal of muck sediments from the lake bottom. The project also provides the opportunity to plant diverse wetland vegetation along a redesigned, sloping shoreline. The remaining green space around the lake will be enhanced with trails, benches and educational stations. A new pathway will connect Seventh Avenue North to Sixth Avenue North on the east side of the lake, providing pedestrian access for Lake Park Elementary School students. A public meeting is set for 5-7 p.m. Wedneday, Jan. 29, at Naples Church of God, 1074 10th St. N. All are welcome.

NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATESelf-appreciationAsk Americans how they stand compared to their fellow countrymen, and in survey after survey, the vast majority rank themselves above average in such areas as driving skill, sexual prowess and general honesty. A recent study of English prisoners, published in the British Journal of Social Psychology, revealed that those miscreants think they, too, are in the upper half. They rate themselves above average (whether compared to Britons in prison or in society at large) in compassion, generosity, dependability, trustworthiness and honesty. In fact, the only trait on the University of Southampton survey on which the criminals failed to rank themselves as better than the typical Brit was law-abidingness. On that trait, the inmates rated themselves merely as average. Compelling explanations Pastor Ray Scott Teets, 66, of Fallen Timbers Community Chapel in Springhill Township, Pa., arrested in November for alleged inappropriate contact with an 11-year-old girl (daughter of parishioners) on at least three occasions, denied to police that the meetings were inappropriate. The girl, he said, requested counseling with him and suggested that the sessions take place in the storage shed in back of the chapel. (The girl said there were six meetings, lasting about 15 minutes each, and denied initiating them.) Robert Bourque, 55, was convicted of DUI in Sarnia, Ontario, in October, but continued to deny the charge. He admitted he had four beers on the day of the traffic stop but said the Breathalyzer result was misleading because he had recently poured alcohol into his ears to test his theory about how Jesus healed the sick. (Mr. Bourque was acting as his own lawyer.) The mother and other relatives of William Medina, 24, said they felt hurt by the publics comments suggesting that Mr. Medina and his partner in the November Reading, Pa., armed robbery were thugs. William was a family man no big hard criminal, his mother said. The two robbers, armed and wearing masks, were gunned down by a Kricks Korner customer who said he feared the worst when he saw the robbers leading a store employee at gunpoint into a back room. A Medina cousin said he deplored peoples taking the law into their own hands. Ironies In December, a California appeals court endorsed actor Tippi Hedrens victory suing the lawyer who had earlier failed to win compensation for her from a 2006 studio accident. In Ms. Hedrens most famous movie role, she was attacked by birds in Alfred Hitchcocks iconic film, and in 2006 had been clobbered by falling scenery caused by birds nesting in an attic over a stage. A man who won a Hollywood raffle to watch the finale of Breaking Bad with cast members was arrested in Fort Myers earlier this month and faces his own intent-to-sell drug charges. Two weeks earlier, unrelated to the show or the raffle, a man with the same name as the shows protagonist (Walter White) was sentenced in Billings, Mont., to 12 years in prison on drug charges. Officials in Taiji, Japan, announced in October they would build a tourist attraction to publicize a nearby annual dolphin cull in which thousands are killed. Park planners hope to attract visitors to swim and cavort in pools among the lovable, captured dolphins and also to dine on dolphin meat (and rare whale meat) scored from the culls. Conservationists are, of course, disgusted by the project. Fine points of the law Michael Robertson, 31, argued via a lawyer before Massachusettss highest court in November that his arrest for taking upskirt photographs of a woman on the subway should be tossed out asserting that he has a constitutional right to take pictures of anything that is not covered up in public. Said his lawyer (a woman), noting that the victims skirt provided only partial covering, If a clothed person reveals a body part whether it was intentional or unintentional, he or she cannot expect privacy. (Mr. Robertsons case had been suspended at the trial court while he seeks a ruling on his legal interpretation.) The December federal court decision, by Judge William Pauley, dismissing a challenge to the National Security Agencys phone surveillance program, suggested that even if a citizen might prove that his constitutional right to privacy was being violated, that person could never know it in the first place and thus never challenge, because Congress purposely made the NSA program secret. In fact, wrote Judge Pauley, the alleged constitutional violation that created the current lawsuit only came to light because of the unauthorized leaks by Edward Snowden. Therefore, if Congress never amends its secret laws, citizens will never get to find out whether their rights are being violated. PerspectiveFor nearly 30 years, until 2007, the U.S. national symbol, the bald eagle, was endangered and protected, but officially they (along with golden eagles) are now so insignificant that the government is willing to endure dozens of them being chopped to death annually in the blades of clean energy wind turbines. An Associated Press investigation in December revealed that the federal government is purposely ignoring the eagles attrition out of fear that outraged conservationists campaigns will hinder development of wind power as an alternative to coalproduced electricity. (Another recent AP investigation revealed a similar painful choice in the continued commitment to ethanol as a cleaner alternative fuel even though that cleanliness is being increasingly questioned, and even though ethanol production requires the massive diversion of corn that could inexpensively feed millions of hungry people worldwide.)

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA34 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 HEALTHY LIVINGTen years later, seniors still feel benefits of mental exercises THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAOlder adults who received as few as 10 sessions of mental training show longlasting improvements in reasoning and speed of processing skills 10 years after the intervention, according to UF Health researchers with the Advanced Cognitive Training for Independent and Vital Elderly, or ACTIVE, study. The study findings appeared Jan. 13 in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society. Our prior research suggested that the benefits of the training could last up to five years, or even seven years, but no one had ever reported 10-year maintenance in mental training in older adults, says ACTIVE researcher Michael Marsiske, an associate professor of clinical and health psychology at the University of Florida College of Public Health and Health Professions. One of the reasons that this is surprising has to do with how little training we did with participants, about 10 to 18 sessions, he adds. This would be like going to the gym for between five and 10 weeks, never going again, and still seeing positive effects a decade later. Participants who received the cognitive training also reported significantly less difficulty with daily living tasks such as housework, medication management and shopping. Funded by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Nursing Research, the ACTIVE study involved 2,832 seniors aged 65 to 96 who were divided into groups for 10 training sessions in memory, reasoning or speed of processing. Training was conducted in 60to 75-minute sessions over a fiveto six-week period. Some participants were randomly selected to receive booster training 11 and 35 months following the initial training. A control group received no training. Researchers cond ucted outcome assessments immediately after the training and again two, three, five and 10 years later. The researchers selected training programs in memory, reasoning and speed of processing because those cognitive abilities are important for activities of daily living and there is evidence that they decline with old age, Mr. Marsiske, a member of UFs Institute on Aging, says. If we can boost these basic skills, we think we can also boost everyday functioning or help people maintain their independence, he adds. At the 10-year mark, nearly three-quarters of study participants who received reasoning training and more than 70 percent of speed of processing participants were performing at or above their baseline level compared with about 62 percent and 50 percent, respectively, of control participants. While memory improvements were not sustained 10 years later among participants in the memory-training group, older adults in all three of the training groups reported less decline in their ability to perform daily tasks. Future research could examine whether longer training periods or booster sessions might help older adults maintain gains in memory performance, Mr. Marsiske says. ACTIVE investigators are currently studying ways to extend mental training beyond the training sessions to activities that older adults can do on their own, such as computerized training programs and workbooks that couples can do together. Mr. Marsiske and other researchers are also evaluating the effect of combining mental exercise with physical exercise. With the ACTIVE study I think weve permanently shattered the myth that old dogs, and older humans, cant learn new tricks, he says. I think underlying that is a clear understanding, not just from our work, but from the work of others, that a critical thing to do as we get older is to challenge ourselves with new things. Oftentimes older adults will ask, Should I do crossword puzzles? And yes, those are wonderful things to do. But, if youre an expert crossword puzzler, late life is the time to take on some new challenge. So play video games or learn an instrument, because learning new things seems to be the real secret to maintaining mental functioning in old age. In addition to Mr. Marsiske, ACTIVE investigators include George Rebok, The Johns Hopkins University; Karlene Ball, University of Alabama at Birmingham; John Morris, Hebrew Senior Life; Sharon Tennstedt, New England Research Institutes; Frederick Unversagt, Indiana University; and Sherry Willis, University of Washington. ACTIVE research was supported by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute for Nursing Research of the National Institutes of Health. Striving to keep ethics, transparency and patient care firstMany (too many!) years ago, after I graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University and as an impressionable medical intern at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, a very wise, senior professor of clinical medicine pulled me aside and conveyed a most memorable piece of advice: Just care for the patient, and everything else will follow. Forty years later, that counsel still holds true. Caring for patients and putting their interests ahead of our own remain two fundamental ethical principles inculcated into every new physician. As we graduate from medical school and become professionals, we take the Oath of Hippocrates or the Oath of Maimonides, both of which have professional ethics as their essence. In recent years, however, regulatory authorities have reminded us that there are other not-so-noble motivations sometimes afoot in our industry. They are damaging to everyone patients, payers (insurance companies, particularly Medicare), physicians, health-care systems and the general public. These questionable motivations lead to abuses and overutilization, which makes its more important than ever that we reemphasize the primary themes that have sustained our profession over time: medical ethics, transparency and caring for the patient. Heres how we approach these imperatives as a system. Medical ethics Our goal at NCH is to help people live longer, happier and healthier lives. We want to keep people out of the hospital. Ultimately, we want to evolve from a repair-shop mentality to a prevention community. Toward this end, among other initiatives, we operate two state-of-theart wellness centers; have asked our 5,600 colleagues and families, for whom we provide health insurance, to embrace a Road to Wellness in their everyday lives; and have adopted a Blue Zone initiative to add years of life expectancy for all of us in the community. Transparency The digital age is here to stay. Having ready access to information about quality, cost and overall value enables patients to become wiser and more sophisticated in their health-care choices. This trend is good for everyone. The more we know, the better we will do. The payers also have more information and better analytics than ever before and should be using this knowledge to direct patients they insure to physicians and health-care systems that provide high value. Patient care As caregivers, we are judged by the company we keep. We profit from being associated with ethical, principled, honorable organizations that do the right thing to get the best results for patients. Our challenge is heightened by the inexorable trend in our industry to pay for value, not volume. Our loyalty is to our community, and our mission lies in the bedrock principles we learned coming out of medical school. That is a pledge we dont intend to break.

Ms. Honeycutt will escort the winner into Tonys Off Third Wine & Pastry Shop to select the prize: a bottle of wine. The trivia questions, courtesy of Naples Historical Society, should be easy to answer those who have a historic attachment and keen knowledge of the city of Naples and Collier County. Contestants will receive a short list of questions and must submit written answers to the bartender before 6:30 p.m., which is when Ms. Honeycutt will reveal the answers and determine the winner. So much history is made here, says Mr. Ridgway, who has been cooking for Naples residents and tourists for nearly 40 years at the same location. We love hosting memorable and milestone events for people. Mr. Ridgway introduced his Crispy Fish dish to Naples diners 33 years ago and recently started offering it again on the last Friday of the month. Adding the trivia contest sounded like a fun way to reconnect with our old friends and maybe create some new ones too, he says. The Courtyard at Ridgway is on 13th Avenue South, just off Third Street South and two blocks from the Naples pier.

There is most definitely a difference between Seminole and Miccosukee Indians, both who reside locally. The major difference is their language; with the Seminole speaking a Creek dialect that originated in Alabama, and the Miccosukee speaking a dialect of the Hitchiti, from Georgia. The Seminoles resisted life on reservations, and this is what divided the Florida native peoples into two camps. One camp, the Miccosukee Tribe of Seminole Indians of Florida, provided a safe haven for people with traditional views. The second camp took the offer of the reservation lands and began preserving the language and customs and self-government. They became known as the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Historical records indicate that fewer than 200 Seminoles remained hidden in the Everglades and Big Cypress region of Florida at the end of the Seminole wars in 1858. The rest had been killed or captured or had surrendered, and those in federal custody were shipped off to Oklahoma. By the 20th century, the Seminoles were finally able to begin living off the land while hunting and fishing and trading at the scarce frontier outposts including the former Storter Trading Post, now home of the Rod & Gun Club in Everglades City without interference from the U.S. government. In 1904, A.W. Dimock and his son Julian tied up their houseboat at George Storters store in Everglade. Julian set up his tripod and camera and, over the next several years, took hundreds of photos of the Seminole Indians. His many works can be found in Hidden Seminoles, a book by Jerald Milanich and Nina Root. Enchantments: The Photographic Adventures of Julian Dimock, 1904-1913, a collection of the historic photographs curated by Dr. Milanich, professor emeritus of the Florida Museum of Natural History and reproduced courtesy of the research library of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, is on exhibit through March 29 at the Marco Island Historical Museum. Deaconess Harriet Bedell, a missionary at the Glade Cross Mission in Everglades City, brought about the promotion and marketing of Seminole Indian crafts such as grass baskets, woven beadwork, dolls and clothing that were nearing extinction. The opening of the Tamiami Trail in 1928 made possible an important retail outlet for the wares. In addition to the Marco museum exhibit, there are two events coming up with a focus on the Seminoles. The first is the Big Cypress Shootout Jan. 31-Feb 2 at the Billie Swamp Safari (Exit 49 off I-75, then 19 miles north; $10 admission for adults, $6 for children). Included in the activities is a Second Seminole War reenactment (11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 2. Throughout the festival there will be alligator wrestling, time period encampments, venomous snake shows, native music, arts and crafts and food. For more information, visit www.BCShootout.com. And Feb. 12-June 30, the Collier County Museum hosts two exhibitions about the Seminoles: Guy LaBree: The Barefoot Artist and Seminole Artists Brian and Pedro Zepeda: Rooted in Tradition. Mr. LaBree, a third-generation Floridian and self-taught artist, was raised near the Seminole reservation in Dania, near Hollywood. A selection of 27 original paintings and giclees on loan from the artist and the Seminole Tribe of Floridas Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum will comprise the show. (Two of Mr. LaBrees paintings hang in the Smithsonian Institutions National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.) Brothers Brian and Pedro Zepeda, members of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, create patchwork, beadwork and woodcarvings in the Seminole tradition. Pedro Zepeda will speak about Seminole traditional arts at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb 19, at the museum. Admission to all Collier County Museums is always free, although donations are welcome. Reservations are required for the lecture. Call 252-8738. For more information, visit www.colliermuseums.com. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981.

Your rabbit race through weave poles? Your pot-bellied pig complete an obedience routine? Well, why not? These animals, as well as guinea pigs, rats, mice, gerbils and more, can all learn to amaze your friends and family by performing tricks and other behaviors on cue. Think it cant be done? So do most people, until they try it, says behavioral biologist and learning authority Karen Pryor of Watertown, Mass. Using a clicker, you can teach pocket pets to raise a paw, go through hoops, stand up on their hind legs and put their paws on a box, put a pingpong ball in a miniature basket and play basketball, and pull on a string to turn a light on and off, Ms. Pryor says. Clicker training involves marking a desired behavior with a sound made by pressing down on the clicker and then rewarding the animal with a favorite treat, toy or praise. Pets learn quickly that the sound of the clicker means theyve done something you like and that a reward is forthcoming. Teaching the animal to touch or follow a target, such as a wooden spoon or a chopstick, is usually the first step. Hold it out, and when the animal moves forward to sniff it, click and give a favorite treat, something the animal loves that he doesnt get on an everyday basis. Even timid animals who arent hand-tame can be willing to approach the target. Click the instant they touch or sniff or even look at the target, Ms. Pryor says. Then give them a treat. Dont make them come to you just drop it in a little dish so they can get it without having to come near you. Its just temporary because as soon as they figure out what theyre doing is making you click, theyre going to stop being afraid of you. As soon as theyll come to the target or follow the target, you can do anything you want with them. You can teach them to jump over your foot, go through a tunnel you can have an agility course on the kitchen floor. Many people have taught guinea pigs and rabbits to weave through poles, says Ms. Pryor. Teach tricks that are appropriate for your pet. For instance, ferrets are good with their paws and can learn to pick up things, while guinea pigs and rabbits are better suited to pushing items with their noses or hopping in and out of weave poles. Laura Bourhenne, a dog and exotic animal trainer with Animal Attraction Unlimited in Woodland Hills, Calif., says teaching a nose touch is good for all animals, especially if you can train them to do it for an extended time. The behavior can be used to keep the animal still during a vet exam, she says. And if I know how an animal looks when it turns in a circle and then that behavior changes or the animal wont do it when asked for it, then that can give me a big clue when something is off in the animals body. Teaching tricks has other practical benefits. Your pet can learn to come when called very useful when a pocket pet has escaped from his cage to move to a specific place, making it easier to clean his cage, and to be willing to sit still for handling, which comes in handy if you need to trim his nails or take him to the veterinarian. Be patient when training your pocket pal. Animals learn at different rates, but all respond to praise and rewards.

And according to the Quit Smoking app on my phone, Ive saved a grand total of $9,744.53 (which, Im pretty sure, I have spent entirely on clothes at Ross Dress For Less). But, what really strikes me as a quitter after nearly 30 years of smoking (I started when I was 5, kind of well close, anyway) almost two packs a day (I never do anything halfway), is that my nonsmoking friends must really, really, really like me. Three years later, I have NO idea how they put up with my annoying, smelly, gross self. I swear, Im not one of those boring, righteous ex-smoker-types we all cant stand. Im really not. I respect the fact that nicotine is horrifically addictive, and I dont believe that smoking is a habit. I know that addiction is a disease, and quitting is one of the most difficult things Ive ever done (I tried to quit at least 20 times and never made it longer than 24 hours). My realization that my friends must truly adore my company is a happy one, and I want to tell them thank you. Heres how I know you loved me: You let me smoke in the passenger seat of your brand new car all the way to Naples. Yes, the window was cracked, but it was also 90 degrees out. When I snuck outside during blacktie events and came back in, you refrained from mentioning that I smelled like an ashtray. And then you hugged me, so you ended up smelling like an ashtray, too. When we were out for happy hour no matter whether the weather was Africa-hot-and-humid summer or Florida-chilly winter, you actually sat outside with me. Whenever I wanted to hang out in places where smoking was permitted, you came with me even though you had to disrobe in your garage when you arrived home, rather than walk inside in your stinky clothes. Not only that, you had to wash your hair after every time we were together. Thats love. Because, truly, some smokers have no clue what theyre doing to their friends and family; addiction is, after all, insidious and selfish. But, at three years smoke-free, I find that while I love my friends who still smoke, I dont see them as much as I used to (thank goodness for phones and Facebook). And if youre still smoking and wondering how I finally gave it up (after hypnosis, Chantix, the patch, the gum and everything else under the sun didnt work), it was the E-cigarette (and determination). These days, theres vaping, which is similar. But I relied on the E-cigarette for cravings after I decided to quit; then, about two months later, I was able to give that up, too. Again, thank you, dear friends. May I someday be as accepting, sweet and patient as you were.So much to do!Neapolitans have an excess of fun and festive events to choose from and personally, Id love to go to all of them. There are two this Friday, Jan. 24, at the Hilton Naples: At Shulas restaurant in the hotel, golf legend Fuzzy Zoeller will make an appearance to introduce Fuzzys Ultra Premium vodka. Its already won award after award, and now you can see why. Fuzzy will sign bottles from 6-8 p.m. Sip with restraint, though, so you wont be too fuzzy to check out the preview reception for the Naples Antiques Show thats taking place in the hotel ballroom. A $20 donation at the door will go to the David Lawrence Center. Ive also marked my calendar for Wine, Women and Shoes, a benefit for Cancer Alliance of Naples taking place Friday, Jan. 31, at The Club at Mediterra.

Separating fact from fiction in The Wolf of Wall StreetPeriodically, this column reviews movies related to investing and trading. This weeks column is a review of The Wolf of Wall Street. My strong recommendation is to read this column and skip this R-rated film which more appropriately should be assigned a Triple R rating. The movies name might easily attract those who are curious about the inner workings of Wall Street, the power brokers and their extravagant lives. Possibly this column will satisfy that curiosity and save viewers money and three hours of viewing time. The movie offers little insight into Wall Street dealings. Instead, it is a nonstop viewing of sex scenes and addictive drug usage. Beyond those objections, the movie suggests that Wall Streets brokers are immoral, decadent and engaged in highly illegal practices, all to their customers detriment all for a brokers pleasure. The movie tells its version of Jordan Belfort, who creates Stratton Oakmont, a Long Island brokerage firm (. actually not a Wall Street firm by location or caliber). At its peak, some 1,000 employees pump ... then dump penny stocks, executing this fraud between sexual indulgences of all sorts (in-house stripper shows, prostitution and open sex on the trading floor) and 24/7 drug usage of cocaine and Quaaludes. All of the actors communications are replete with expletives. Jordan Belfort was, and is, an incredibly articulate and compelling salesperson. He could sell ice to an Eskimo. He began his career selling penny stocks to some of the least knowledgeable investors but elevated to the affluent retail market. As the latter are more experienced and more cautious of penny stocks, he devised a scheme to gain their confidence: deliver profits in trading blue chips and then transition them into trading penny stocks. Mr. Belfort expanded his firms lines of business from simply penny stock brokerage into the underwriting business, e.g., finding a company that wanted to go public and acting as the principal broker behind the initial public offering or IPO. In the movie, the IPO referenced was Steve Madden Ltd. (In real life, Mr. Madden, the shoe and fashion designer, was ultimately implicated in Mr. Belforts schemes and served 41 months in prison and was forced to resign as CEO of Steve Madden Ltd. By comparison, Mr. Belfort only served 22 months.) Trading in penny stocks has always come under scrutiny because: such companies merits are questioned and the spreads between bid (the top price offered by buyers of the stock) and ask (the top price offered by sellers) are generally much larger than the bid and ask for large cap stocks traded on todays electronic exchanges. (Penny stock brokers can make a lot of money buying and selling when there is a large spread and investor exit can be difficult.) Yet another reason penny stocks are often suspect, at least in Mr. Belforts case, was that rat holes were created to hide stock that the firm or Mr. Belfort had purchased at much lower prices. The stock was then pumped higher on Belfort-spun stories and, with the stock at its zenith, was then dumped upon his clientele. Obviously, the clients had no idea that the companies stories were false or that Stratton Oakmont or its principals were selling their IPO stock to clients at astronomically inflated prices. There are several other major limitations to the movie. First, it leaves out the pictures and stories of the devastation leveled upon Stratton Oakmonts victims. There are no interviews with plumbers and electricians who lost small fortunes or dentists and doctors who lost millions. They are given no face or voice and in doing so, the viewer does not feel the carnage. Second, the sad truth is that Mr. Belfort was released after 22 months in a country club-style prison. According to Bloomberg BusinessWeek in November 7, 2013s Jordan Belfort, The Real Wolf of Wall Street, the Taft Federal Correctional Institution was described by inmates as better than many Manhattan hotels and Mr. Belfort spent his days playing tennis and backgammon and hired others to do his chores intelligent famous guys (were found) hanging out together. Third, Mr. Belfort, in his undaunted salesmanship, struck a deal with the courts and regulatory bodies that he could tell his story of crime in book and movie and speaking engagements provided that half of his earnings go to restore his victims. So Mr. Belfort now earns up to $30,000 per speaking engagement and he has spoken to many a corporate audience. Supposedly, Mr. Belfort has been hired to do work for Delta Air Lines, Symantec, Virgin Airlines, Wyndham, Telstra, Deutsche Bank, Fairfax Media, etc. But take that with a grain of salt as Mr. Belfort is known for spinning stories. Not that Hollywood ever gets a Wall Street story right; but this one, while it has a factual basis, still takes and leaves the viewer in left field.

Five types of bullies to watch out for in business SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThere has been much in the news lately about bullying between teammates on the Miami Dolphins. And by all accounts, its an ugly situation the team in disarray, sponsors canceling contracts, season ticket holders canceling tickets, the Dolphin brand becoming a punch line for comedians jokes, and an overall loss of value for the franchise. And thats not even taking into account the potential for destroying careers. But to my mind, the real story is that so many people are surprised by it, says Bill McBean, author of The Facts of Business Life: What Every Successful Business Owner Knows that You Dont. Im not surprised, and neither should the NFL, franchise owners, or their executives be, Mr. McBean says, adding the only thing that does surprise him is that it took so long for a bullying story to become public. Bullying is a real problem in the business world, he says, and it can happen in any business. The author outlines several different kinds of bullying that business owners should know who to deal with: Customers bullying employees Whoever said the customer is always right was wrong, he says. Part of every business owners job is to protect his or her employees, and that includes protecting them from abusive customers. The owner must let the customer know that he or she is upsetting the employee and, if necessary, must be willing to fire the customer. Once youve done it, it sends a message to your employees that youre a leader they can count on to look after them, Mr. McBean points out. It also shows any bullies on the staff that if youre willing to fire a customer, you might be willing to fire them as well. Owners bullying employees A skunk stinks from the head down, and if the owner is a bully, it sets the stage for the rest of the staff to act the same way. And they will. Whenever Ive wanted to hire experienced employees, Ive always found one of the most fertile places to look are companies where the owner is a bully, because good employees always want to escape, Mr. McBean says. Managers or supervisors bullying employees Like the owners role, managements role is to show leadership, create controls and processes, motivate, educate and develop an environment in which everyone can succeed. Employees bullying each other As in the case with the Dolphins, owners and managers who allow their employees to bully other employees create a problem for the whole organization. It shows management weakness, and an uncaring attitude toward the staff that creates an environment where teamwork and safe working conditions are foreign concepts, dissatisfied employees are common, and success is uncommon. Employees bullying managers and owners This happens a lot more often than you might think, the author says. Management is often under pressure to produce results, and because of that, they sometimes allow high producers to dictate how a business is operated. But you cant let the tail wag the dog, and if a company is going to be successful in the long run, you must have the courage to push back, he says. This isnt a complete bully list just some of the more common ways it can happen in your business, McBean concludes. And believe me, no one is immune to it. At the same time, the actions Ive suggested arent always easy to do. But doing them is important, because it separates the great and most profitable owners from the average ones.About the authorMr. McBean is a featured contributor for The Huffington Post and Business 2 Community. A graduate of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, and Mount Royal College in Calgary, Alberta, he began his career with General Motors of Canada Limited in 1976 and in 1981 accepted a position with the Bank of Nova Scotia as manager of a sizeable commercial lending portfolio. Two years later, GM approached him about opening a new automobile dealership in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. He began his first business as a start-up the following year, with 10 employees. Over the next decade, the dealership became one of the most profitable GM dealerships in the region. In 1992, Mr. McBean and a partner purchased an automotive dealership in Corpus Christi, Texas, and over the next 11 years acquired a large portion of the market share from their competitors. In 2003, their company was purchased by AutoNation. Mr. McBean is general partner of McBean Partners, a family-owned investment company. He is also partner and chairman of Our-Mentors, a company that works with owners to improve their businesses for long-term success.

Arthrex presents $25,000 to PACE Center for GirlsNaples-based Arthrex, a global medical device and medical education company, recently presented a $25,000 check to PACE Center for Girls, Immokalee. A portion of the funds has been earmarked for sponsorship of the annual PACE Believing in Girls luncheon that takes place Thursday, Feb. 13, at the Hilton Naples. We are honored to count Arthrex among our community partners, says Marianne Kearns, executive director of PACE in Collier County. Their ongoing support of PACE and our mission has been critical in allowing us to help change the lives of hundreds of at-risk girls in Collier County. Several Arthrex employees have toured the PACE Center and seen the difference it makes in live of at-risk young women, Cindy Obrecht, a member of the Arthrex Charitable Committee, says. As a corporation, we not only want to make positive contributions to the field of medicine, but also to the local communities we serve. PACE Center for Girls is a non-residential juvenile delinquency prevention and intervention program targeting the unique needs of girls ages 12-18 who face challenges such as physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, foster care, neglect, death of a parent, family history of incarceration and declining grades. At PACE, they find a supportive environment focusing on their strengths through a genderresponsive approach that centers on the emotional and physical safety of each girl. As a result, PACE reduces the significant long-term costs associated with teen pregnancy, substance abuse, unemployment, and long term economic dependency.

In other counties we saw a rollercoaster pattern. Foreclosure started to go down then bounced back higher in 2012 and 2013. Such was the case in Charlotte and Collier counties. Charlotte County foreclosures in 2012 were up nearly 150 percent from 2011 2,100 vs. 1,407, according to clerk of court records. Collier, which peaked at 8,203 foreclosure filings in 2009, increased 127 percent between 2011 and 2012. Foreclosures dropped in all three counties in 2013 with Lee County showing the greatest decline a 30 percent decrease from 2012. Charlotte Countys foreclosure rate dropped nearly 15 percent; Colliers nearly 9 percent. The reduction, according to a RealtyTrac report, was much greater than for Florida as a whole. Charlotte County ranked 22nd in the state, Lee County 30th and Collier 52nd. Since 2008 foreclosure cases have been filed against 120,525 underwater homeowners in the three-county region and Florida in 2013 continued to lead the country in foreclosure proceedings. Florida is still three times higher than the national average and thats because Florida was harder hit to begin with, says Mr. Blomquist. Secondly there were delays in processing foreclosures. But there is good news for the local real estate industry as a whole. New cases are declining, more backlogged cases are getting resolved and distressed properties account for a dwindling fraction of real estate market. In December 2013, 71.8 percent of Lee Countys real estate sales were traditional properties, 18.9 percent were foreclosure sales and 9.3 percent were short sales, according to Doreen Herring, director of communications and marketing for the Realtor Association of Greater Fort Myers and the Beach. In general, the percent of our sales within the non-traditional market decreased during 2013, says Pat Pitocchi, president of the Naples Board of Realtors, which released it 2013 stats Jan. 17. Foreclosures and short sales represent a smaller portion of our market and we look for the trend to continue in 2014. Non-traditional sales in Collier County in 2013 accounted for 26 percent of all sales for the year but by December had decreased to just 17 percent. As recently as last week the 2,088 single-family homes for sale in Charlotte County included 80 short sales and 202 listed as bank-owned, noted John Bockin, president of the Punta Gorda Port Charlotte North Port Association of Realtors and an agent with RE/MAX Harbor Realty. That accounts to 13 percent of the total for-sale inventory significantly down from 2012s 36 percent and last years 25 percent. Statistically, 2010 was the worst year based on the short sale/bank-owned properties percentage to non-distressed sales, says Mr. Bockin. Distressed sales represented approximately 50 percent of the single-family market. Although the foreclosure rollercoaster creates some uncertainty in the real estate market, Mr. Blomquist says consumers appear to be confident enough in the long-term prospects to keep buying. In fact an influx of more foreclosures could even stimulate the market by providing more inventory for eager buyers and investors.Speeding the slow trainThe foreclosure process is more akin to the kiddie coaster slow and with little momentum. Cases have bumped around in the system for years, some dropped and refiled starting the entire process again because of robo-signing scandals and incorrect paperwork. But fewer filings have allowed beleaguered judges and an overwhelmed court system to catch up on their backlog. We got slammed in 2008, says Sandi Sauls, with the Lee Clerk of Courts. In January 2010 we had a backlog of 23,000 cases; now were at about 6,100. During the height of the foreclosure crisis it was said that outstanding cases numbered around 10,000 according to our Civil Department, says Bob St. Cyr, director of community outreach for Colliers Clerk of the Circuit Court. A lot of progress has been made to get it down to 3,000 plus. Florida has allocated more than $5 million to hire retired judges and magistrates to deal with its caseload, he says. Last year, Florida Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, a Collier County resident, successfully sponsored a law designed to fast track the foreclosure process. Mr. Blomquist said federal programs like 2012s $25 billion National Mortgage Settlement have taken a bite out of the elephant that was the foreclosure crisis, but they were not a silver bullet that prevented the bulk of foreclosures. Ironically, the new Florida legislation slowed activity statewide, he says. I do believe there may be one last surge in Florida foreclosure activity in 2014 because of the foreclosure fast track bill passed back in July, he says. The immediate impact of that was actually a slowdown in foreclosure activity in the second half of the year, but I think banks and courts will figure out the new rules and start pushing through foreclosures faster this year.In the shadowsNew cases wont likely amount to anything near the doomsday shadow inventory real estate pundits have been predicting for years. Those include foreclosures not officially on the court dockets, delinquent mortgages on the fringe of litigation and bank-owned and short-sale properties not yet listed for sale. I debunk the notion of shadows, says NABORs Ms. Pitocchi. Shadows are funny: You cant put them in your hands, you cant find them. If we had an increase or equal number of non-traditional sales in 2013 and high inventory there might be some shadow inferences but in terms of data, shadow inventory is not part of the discussion. There was a decrease in the number of non-traditional sales and thats a good sign for us, she continued. Were not looking to discover any shadows. Mr. Blomquist also believes the shadows wont be so ominous although Florida will likely continue to project a false echo because of its backlog.Buyers and biddersLocally, many distressed properties end up on the auction block. Charlotte County became the first in Florida to offer both online sales for tax deeds and foreclosures, and like many court systems offers daily auction sales during the business week and links to auction listings. Having foreclosure sales online offers greater access to the public and has improved the efficiency of the clerks office in processing sales and titles, its website notes. Lee County also conducts online foreclosure auctions, listing dozens of homes and vacant property on the auction block virtually every day. Buyers, however, must always beware. Theres no way of knowing the condition of a home and potential costly repairs without walking through it or the accuracy of foreclosure documents which could come back to haunt buyers. A real estate attorney I know estimates 20 to 25 percent of foreclosures are not done properly, says Naples Realtor Glenn Ginsberg, owner of A Delta Realty. During the beginning of the foreclosure crisis, Mr. Ginsberg worked with homeowners trying to sell off foreclosures. But he soon saw too many cases where banks made lousy loan decisions and buyers hadnt been exactly forthcoming with their income. He now works with buyers, noting that only about 10 percent are investors or speculators. What really put me over the edge was one guy who said he ran a car service, he says. He only had one car but managed to buy three condos for close to $1 million through three different mortgage companies. When I told him I needed two years of income tax returns he told me he hadnt filed income taxes for six years. Mr. Ginsberg, a current member of the NABOR board, believes the worst of the foreclosure crisis is over. Foreclosures are not impacting the real estate market like they used to, he says. Were seeing more traditional sales. I was interviewed in 2006 by the local NBC and ABC affiliates and basically told them we were seeing the tip of the iceberg. Boy, I didnt realize how big the iceberg was when I made that comment. UNDERWATERFrom page 1A real estate attorney I know estimates 20 to 25 percent of foreclosures are not done properly.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Avoid These Home-Buying MistakesFor many of us, our home is the biggest asset well ever own. Most of us dont know very much about home-buying, though, and that can hurt us. Here are a few blunders to avoid: (1) Thinking of your home as a guaranteed good investment. Buy it because you like it and need a place to live, but know that real estate markets can be fickle, especially in the short run. According to Yale economist and recent Nobel Prizewinner Robert Shiller, between 1890 to 1990, home prices adjusted for inflation were virtually unchanged. In general, homes are not the best path to wealth. (2) Focusing on the cost of the home more than the cost of the loan. Mortgages are huge purchases of money and their terms can vary widely. Be smart about which kind of loan serves you best (fixed-rate or adjustable-rate, 15 or 30 years, etc.), and seek low rates and fees. (3) Buying more house than you can afford. Sure, a bigger home may be more appealing. But will each mortgage payment be a struggle? Remember that life can throw some wrenches our way. Consider getting preapproved for a mortgage before shopping and focusing on what you can afford. Live below your means, and youll be able to sock away money for retirement, too. (4) Being too fussy in your homeselection process. Dont rule out various types of homes without checking them out and truly considering them. Dont let an outdated bathroom, shag rug or paint color put you off, as those can be changed. A homes location does matter, though, as does its layout and room sizes. (5) Avoiding real estate agents. Yes, you might save a few thousand dollars by going it alone but a skilled agent can steer you toward the best buys and might be able to get you a better price. Good agents can be well worth their cost. Occasional financial mistakes are inevitable, but armed with a sound perspective, you can reduce them. Loss Not StoppedMy dumbest investment was buying TTM Technologies without a stop-loss order on it. I ended up down 59 percent. B.B., onlineThe Fool Responds: TTM Technologies is a top maker of printed circuit boards, and it has seen its stock surge and plunge over the past year. Its fans like its diverse customer base and how it offers customers rapid one-stop manufacturing. Doubters dont like its debt load or cyclical volatility.It can make sense to place stop-loss orders on stocks, which will trigger an automatic sale if the stock falls by a set percentage. While a stop-loss order can prevent a big loss, it can also prevent a big gain, kicking you out of a solid stock just because it had a temporary hiccup. (Though remember, you can always buy back into the stock later.) These orders can be handy if youre heading out on a long vacation and wont be checking up on your holdings. With a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 8, well below its five-year average of 33, the stock seems appealingly valued. (The Motley Fools newsletters have recommended TTM Technologies.) A Shiny Portfolio CandidateStock in U.S. aluminum giant Alcoa (NYSE: AA) gained 24 percent in 2013, and the stock has more room to run. (That 24 percent actually underperformed the S&P 500, which gained about 32 percent in 2013.) Aluminum producers have suffered lately from low aluminum prices, but there are reasons to be optimistic about Alcoas future. Our global economic slowdown did depress demand, but it also created a production deficit that should widen over the coming years. The rebounding auto industry also bodes well for Alcoa. Meanwhile, Alcoa is branching out into specialty markets that offer higher profit margins and should drive future earnings. Alcoa is grabbing opportunities such as producing lightweight alloys for airplanes, and it recently snagged a $110 million contract from Airbus. Its also looking at the housing industry, where new window products can boost energy efficiency. Alcoas value-add businesses now account for 57 percent of total revenues and 79 percent of after-tax operating profits. Its looking to add more than $2 billion in new revenues to its business, though a good part of its plan comes from firming prices in the marketplace. With a forward-looking price-toearnings (P/E) ratio well below its fiveyear average and a 1.2 percent dividend yield, Alcoa seems likely to reward longterm shareholders. My history goes back to 1799 (thats 215 years!) and features more than 1,200 predecessor institutions, such as Manufacturers Hanover, Bank One, Chemical Bank, First Chicago and National Bank of Detroit. In 2008 I acquired Bear Stearns and much of Washington Mutual. My earliest incarnation was as The Bank of The Manhattan Co., founded by Aaron Burr and involved in providing Manhattan with water via wooden pipes. Im an international financial services giant, with more than $2 trillion in assets. I operate in more than 60 nations and employ more than a quarter of a million people. Who am I? (Answer: JPMorgan Chase) Mutual Fund MysteriesQHow can I know exactly which stocks my mutual fund has invested in? G.C., Warsaw, Ind.AFunds dont reveal what they buy and sell each day, but they do generally publish monthly or quarterly lists of their holdings. Youll find these reports on the fund companys website. You can also click over to Morningstar.com to look up all kinds of information on various funds. Remember, though, that while a fund may have many shares of a company as of the end of last quarter, it might have sold off most of them by the time youre reading the quarterly report. Also, some fund managers engage in window dressing, loading their funds near the end of a quarter with hot stocks that have soared recently, so that theyll look smart. ***QDo I have to buy 100 shares at a time of any stock? B.F., Watertown, Wis.AMost brokerages dont restrict how many shares of stock you can buy. You can buy 13, or 72, or even just one share. Pay attention to what percentage of your investment is going to commissions, though. If youre buying 10 shares of a $40 stock for $400, but are paying a $25 commission to your broker, then that represents more than 6 percent of your investment, which is too costly. (25 divided by 400 is 0.0625, or 6.25 percent.) Aim to pay 2 percent or less in commissions. If you buy $1,250 of stock in a company and pay a $25 commission, thats just 2 percent. Many brokerages these days charge commissions of $10 or lower per trade. With a $400 investment, an $8 commission would be just 2 percent. Learn more at broker.fool. com. Got a question for the Fool?

Joanne Ciesielski Brian Carey View Tour with smart phone: View Tour with smart phone: View Tour with smart phone: PENDING OPEN SUN 1-4 OPEN SUN 2-4 Free seminar focuses on interior design projects BY LISA MISHLERSpecial to Florida Weekly Many homeowners have a stack of home magazines with pages turned down or a scrapbook of photos of interiors they love. The next step is making those interior design dreams a reality. Before you do anything, however, you must determine what it is you really want to accomplish. You need to know who is going to use the space and how you live so you can plan around your lifestyle and activities, says interior designer Maxine Corbett, general manager of the Miromar Design Center. When modifying an existing space, consider what you already like about it and what changes would make it better serve the way you live. Not everyone can start with a fresh, empty room and begin decorating. Most of us already have some pieces of furniture, or the space has some features youre not ready to discard (countertops that still have years of use in them, perhaps). So you need to identify which changes are necessities and which ones are on your wish list. Once you answer those questions, its time to be realistic about how much time and money you want to spend. Its not the job of the homeowner to estimate what the costs are, but they have to know what they are comfortable spending, Ms. Corbett says. Parameters make the process much quicker and more enjoyable, because there are no surprises or disappointments. As for the investment of time, how long you have for the project from start to finish and how much you want to be involved can affect many of the buying decisions. For example, if you are redecorating for big event in your home such as a wedding that is just 10 weeks away, you dont want to use a product that will take 16 weeks to order. During the process, do you want to handle contractors, deliveries and details, or will you leave that to an interior designer?

NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island).According to the report, overall pending and closed sales for homes over $300,000 increased by double digits in 2013.At the beginning of the year, 74 percent of sales were traditional, while 26 percent were non-traditional (short sale and foreclosed properties), says Pat Pitocchi, NABOR president and corporate Trainer at Downing-Frye Realty. But by December, she adds, traditional sales rose to 83 percent of all sales, leaving 17 percent as non-traditional. The overall housing market inched ahead of activity reported in 2012, which was considered a recovery year by market expert Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll. Overall median prices for properties between $300,000 and $2 million leveled off in 2013 with little or no change. However, median prices in the lower-end (under $300,000) and higher-end ($2 million-plus) increased 16 percent and 5 percent, respectively. The report shows a clear and steady demand for housing in Naples, says Glenn Ginsburg of A Delta Realty of Naples. The condo market was especially hot in 2013, he adds. The NABOR 2013 Annual Report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the overall findings: Overall closed sales in both the $300,000-$500,000 and $2 million-plus segments increased 27 percent from 1,366 in 2012 to 1,730 in 2013 and 234 in 2012 to 298 in 2013, respectively. Median prices for single-family homes in the $300,000 and below category increased by 17 percent from $150,000 in 2012 to $175,000 in 2013. Overall inventory decreased by 18 percent from 6,557 properties in 2012 to 5,403 properties in 2013. Inventory in the condo market decreased by 23 percent. The report indicates the housing market is behaving in a normal manner, says Mike Hughes of Downing-Frye Realty. The solid incremental growth we experienced in 2013, especially in the middle priced markets, is a good sign our housing market has recovered, he says. Homeowners that want to sell but are sitting on the fence need to understand that the lax lending environment, which created the last spike in prices, no longer exists. Demand for existing homes has increased in all price segments and in all neighborhoods. This might change when new home construction catches up, he adds, making this a good time to call a real estate professional.

FRESHEN YOUR FACE FOR $2014!Save Big on Skin Tightening and Spa Treatments in the New Year! SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA rules girl breaks them allIve spent my entire adult life following a set of relationship rules gleaned from romance guides and common-sense wisdom, and frankly, Im exhausted. I never realized that being good took so much work. So when a man I met at a friends party invited me to drinks, I tried a new and experimental approach: I put all those strict rules to the side. Why not, I thought, let myself go a little? The first rule broken: Always let the man set the date. When this particular gentleman suggested a weekend rendezvous when I was already booked I hesitated only a second before responding. How about tonight instead? For once I was direct this after a lifetime of pussyfooting around. He didnt seem to mind. In less than two minutes we had drinks on the evenings agenda. Was it possible I had wasted all those years sticking to a useless set of rules? Second rule broken: Two drinks maximum, one drink suggested, no drinks optimal. Normally Im not a big drinker. Im the girl who orders a club soda and lime when everyone else is elbow-deep in two-for-one margaritas. But I figured if I was already breaking one rule, why not break them all? And my date was so affable, his company so enjoyable, that when he proposed a second round I happily agreed, even though I knew better. Later, a third round seemed just as good. Third rule broken: Showing too much interest. Every romance guide agrees that over-flirting on an early date ensures that a relationship will tank. One whiff of the possibility that a woman might be easy and a man will forever classify her in Steve Harveys terms as a sports fish. Keepers, Mr. Harvey says, are the women men want to marry, the ones with too much self-respect to throw themselves at every passing bachelor. I flatter myself by thinking Im in this category, but even I know it doesnt count when Im three drinks in with a man who tells good jokes. Youre so funny, I said at one point, giving his arm a lecherous grab. My date pulled back. Youre certainly forward, he said. I wanted to laugh. Im not forward at all. I just happened to be breaking all my rules in one night. Which turned out to be a bad idea. As the night drew to an unremarkable close a quick hug and no promises to be in touch I began to understand why these rules exist in the first place. Not to snag a husband (anybody can do that), but to ensure that we respect ourselves. In our modern dating culture, we have so many opportunities to throw away our self-respect. We accept dates by text. We let men schedule last-minute mid-week affairs knowing that theyre saving prime weekend time for a better candidate. We drink too much. And we offer ourselves up too easily. The rules give us a guideline not just for good behavior, but for selfrespecting behavior. Thats something worth upholding, and I wont be breaking mine again anytime soon.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 They become part of the work. Thats part of the magic. Its not just something you observe, its something you participate in. I look at a lot of contemporary art, Mr. Noga adds. I stand in front of great paintings, historical work, and they affect me and move me. But there is something about work you have to participate in. Your thinking is accompanied by an action. Its like a seal: to think about it, but to then have an action. I think it harkens back to the Fluxus movement. These very simple actions of everyday life can make you reconsider your existence, and thats exactly where her work comes from, he says about the avant-garde Ms. Ono, an early pioneer in conceptual art. For example, Mend Piece, newly revisioned for Fort Myers, consists of white globes broken in shards. Viewers are invited to help put the world back together again, using glue, tape, twine. You see, when youre mending the globe, youre thinking of mending the world, Ms. Ono says. Thats the catch. Youre doing it. The show is the first at the Rauschenberg gallery under the guidance of Jade Dellinger, who became gallery director in September. Shes revisiting an old piece, but making it new for us, says Mr. Dellinger. In the 1960s, Ms. Ono did Mend Piece using broken cups. This is the first time ever shes using globes, he says. The artist has also written a new text to accompany the work. She does a version, sometimes as an interactive gallery piece, and sometimes as a performance piece, explains Mr. Concannon, wholl lecture about Ms. Onos art on opening night of the exhibit at ESC. Fairly often, when she does a lecture or a performance event, she will take an existing pot, smash it in the middle of the performance or lecture, and invite members of the audience to come and take a piece, (saying,) In 10 years well get together and put it together again.Always with humorMs. Ono says she knew she was an artist when she was 3 or 4 years old. No one would believe that, but I was creating things, and saying, I need to share this with the world, she says. I would think, Why dont we put this seed of plum and seed of peach in together, and bury them in the garden? Maybe it will come out a peach plum. My art is a conceptual thing. It comes very naturally to me. Some of her work doesnt even exist physically, only in the mind or the imagination. What inspires her to create? I dont know, she says. I get the inspiration, and I dont want to keep it in my mind. I think its better to dish it out, thats all. Her work is imbued with whimsy and a sense of the absurd. Humor is there in life, she says, explaining why its prominent in her work. Thats a part of life. Its very important. She and her late husband, the Beatle John Lennon, met at the Indica Gallery in London in November 1966, just before her one-woman show, Unfinished Paintings and Objects, opened. A version of Play It By Trust, one of the pieces in that 1966 exhibit, is in the show coming to the Rauschenberg gallery. It consists of a lawn-sized chessboard, with pieces and board painted all white. The original instructions: Play it for as long as you can remember who is your opponent and who is your own self. It shows the futility of conflict, Mr. Dellinger explains. After you move pieces a few times, you lose track of which side youre on. A new interpretation of Ms. Onos Parts of a Lighthouse will also be featured in the show. Mr. Lennon, intrigued by the idea of a house made entirely of light, wanted to purchase the work for his garden after seeing it listed for sale at the Indica Gallery, Ms. Ono says. I said, I cant do it because I dont know how to, she told him. However, on Oct. 9, 2007, she made that concept reality with the Imagine Peace Tower on an island outside of Reykjavik, Iceland. The work is a tower of light that rises a mile into the sky and is lit from Oct. 9, Mr. Lennons birthday, through Dec. 8, the day he was shot. It was a bit slow, Ms. Ono says. It took a long time to do it, but John pushed the piece. It was the first piece of mine he liked that he wanted in his garden. The Imagine Peace Tower light is also turned on for Ms. Onos birthday. (She turns 81 on Feb. 18). These days, they do it for me, which is very sweet, she says. A 19-minute video that tracks the making of the tower from conception to completion can be viewed as part of Yoko Ono Imagine Peace at the Rauschenberg gallery. Also on display will be the original sales list from Ms. Onos 1966 show at the Indica Gallery. And in the gallerys alcove will be Parts of a Lighthouse, which incorporates 55 glass tetrahedral prisms and light to create a house of light. Three ficus trees will comprise the Wish Tree piece. Viewers can write a wish on a shipping tag and hang it from a tree. Throughout the years, hundreds of thousands of wishes have been collected from people worldwide and placed at the base of the light tower in Iceland. The wishes at the Fort Myers exhibit will be collected and hand-delivered by three ESC students in an all-expensespaid trip to Iceland, accompanied by art professor Dana Roes. Mr. Dellinger will announce the names of the students at the shows opening.A map to peaceMuch of the work in the exhibit is white. When asked why, Ms. Ono explains, Because then you can put any color you want on it. Its very hard if you have a definite color, (such as) bright red. But white gives you an opportunity to give something that you want. Possibly the most colorful piece in the exhibit is the Imagine Peace Maps. Domestic maps line one wall: one of the United States, one of the state of Florida and a local one showing a radius of 25 miles from the gallery. On an adjoining wall hang four maps: one of the Middle East, a world map, a map of Africa and a map that includes China, Russia and India. Viewers are invited to take a rubber stamp and stamp the words IMAGINE PEACE on them. Mr. Noga recalls seeing his sister and brother-in-law at the inaugural exhibit in Akron, Ohio. Her husband is a great guy, stoic, doesnt say too much, Mr. Noga says. I said, Dave, are you going to stamp the map? He said, Probably not. But then later on, I saw him stamp Imagine Peace on Lebanon, because hes half-Lebanese. Thats the power of Yokos work I never asked him about it. I like not knowing what made him change his mind. (Maybe) he thought, Maybe this doesnt mean something, but what if it does mean something? Its her invitation to reconsider ideas, and consider ideas you havent thought about and integrate them into your life for a change. Ms. Onos work attracts a diverse crowd of viewers, some of whom only know the artist because of her husband. Others are familiar with her work. All these diverse people leave changed because of their experience, he says. It alters their knowledge of her, and of themselves and of the world. He acknowledges that some criticize Ms. Onos work as being too simplistic, too nave. I think we underestimate the power of simplicity in things presented, he says. We almost doubt simplicity. Things in our world have become so complex, we cast a leery eye toward simplicity. But I think that in simplicity sometimes there is great truth, and also great impetus for change. It can be easy to look at her work and think, this is simple, its not going to affect me, he says. But its pretty powerful. The maps, which start out pristine, become so blackened with the words Imagine Peace that it is difficult to distinguish one country from another. When that happens, Its very beautiful, says Ms. Ono. She recalls an incident that happened at the Venice Biennale. People from Eastern Europe, very serious people, said, Look, I cant find my village. They said, Oh, Yoko, my village was there, but with the war, they took it away. They were very upset about it. Its a very interesting thing that happens. He was trying to put the rubber stamp where his village once was, but it wasnt on the map anymore (because war had obliterated his village.) Thats the kind of thing you discover, when you go through the map. Thats why we dont want war: it just makes my village disappear.Public art in placeOne of Ms. Onos pieces can be seen in Fort Myers on U.S. 41, south of Colonial Boulevard. The Imagine Peace billboard, which went up on New Years Eve, shows a blue sky with a single white puffy cloud and the words IMAGINE PEACE in white. Underneath, in smaller letters, it says Yoko Ono 2014. The billboard contains no mention of ESC, the gallery or the exhibit because its not an advertisement but a public art piece. If anything, it could be considered an advertisement for peace. Ms. Ono and John began using billboards for peace in 1969 by putting the words WAR IS OVER (IF YOU WANT IT) on billboards in major cities, cleverly using a form of mass communication used to sell products to sell something far more valuable and rare: peace. According to Mr. Dellinger, Ms. Ono likes to say, A dream you dream alone is just a dream, but a dream we dream together is reality. This has been her message, a constant theme, he says. She sees herself as a pragmatist, not as an optimist. Its really, for her, about collective action, changing our reality by all dreaming the same dream. I think that the dream does come true, Ms. Ono says. I have a total belief in that. Its not just Hey, hey, hey, lets be optimistic! I think pragmatically we can make it happen. Everything starts with imagining. Unless you imagine it, visualize it, things wont happen. In the beginning there was the word. And the word, I think, is Imagine.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 ARTS COMMENTARYWith The God Game, Gulfshore Playhouse provokes, intriguesWould you vote for a political candidate who didnt believe in God? What if he said he did but in reality was agnostic? What if a candidate went to church faithfully and dropped Gods name often, as if they were best friends, but his or her voting record harmed the poor, the young and the disenfranchised a direct violation of their religions commands? Is it ever right for candidates to misrepresent themselves, even if they believe that getting into office would then allow them to do the greatest good? Conversely, is it ever possible for a politician to get elected if theyre totally honest? The God Game, playing at Gulfshore Playhouse through Feb. 9, addresses these questions and more. The play by Suzanne Bradbeer celebrates its world premiere at the Naples venue. (The production will play at The Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, N.Y., in May, with the same cast and director Kristen Coury, who is the founding artistic director of Gulfshore Playhouse.) A timely, cerebral play about politics, religion and being true to yourself, The God Game focuses on a trio of friends. Matt (Jeffrey Binder) is an adviser to a Republican governor who has thrown his hat into the presidential ring. Matt shows up at the house of his friends Tom (Laurence Lau) and Lisa (Yvonne Perry). After much hedging, hes finally addresses what hes there for: The very conservative governor wants Tom, a Virginia senator, to be his vice presidential running mate. Toms politics arent quite as extreme as the governors, which should help draw the votes of more moderate Republicans. The only problem? Tom isnt Christian enough. But Tom feels his religious beliefs are a private matter. While he admits to admiring Jesus, he doesnt believe in his divinity. Its slowly uncovered that theres a bigger problem: Toms an agnostic. Yet his wife of 20 years is a fervent believer who goes to church every Sunday. Go to church with your wife and sprinkle in a couple of I love Jesuses, Matt tells him. I dont speak like that, Tom retorts. It would feel phony. His wife isnt too keen on the idea, either; she doesnt want to see her husband faking a faith he doesnt genuinely possess. And so the three debate the matter, turning it over and over. Alliances form and break apart and re-form, testing both the bounds of friendship and the vows of marriage. Could Tom appear more Christian for a campaign if it would mean winning the vice presidency? He doesnt like the governor or many of his policies, but if he got into office, he reasons, he might be able to make his party more moderate and introduce important issues he feels are being overlooked. In some ways, the play feels almost like a Republican version of an episode of The West Wing with fewer characters and without all the rushing around. The dialogue is content-heavy, but not without emotional weight. Kevin Goldsteins set of Toms home office is proper and respectable, understated almost to the point of being boring. Beige-on-beige with some off-white thrown in, its dominated by a huge wooden desk and an equally oversized leather chair. With its curved walls, the room hints at a possible future in the Oval Office. But its also bland to the point of not making a bold statement or offending anyone. Although Tom comes across as a man of principle, he plays his emotions close to the vest. You get the feeling hes always holding something back. Yet at one point, while caring for a bunting that has flown into the office window, he reveals great tenderness. And at another point, he does an awkward little dance thats exactly what a self-conscious Republican senator would do. Mr. Lau has Rob Loweor John Edwards-like boyish looks; its a given that his character probably gets votes on that alone. The playwright treats Lisas Christianity with respect, and this a rare thing to be seen on stage. (Typically, characters with faith are often played for laughs or presented as stereotypes.) But Lisas faith is genuine, and Ms. Perry makes us believe that its a vital, living thing. When its suggested that a candidate who had multiple affairs or was a drug addict would have a better chance of being elected than an agnostic, the audience laughs. But I couldnt help but immediately think of Newt Gingrich and Mark Sanford, (the South Carolina governor who who had a very public affair and yet was re-elected.) And then, of course, there are all those letters to the editor in the daily papers in support of Trey Radel, the congressman from Southwest Florida who is a self-admitted alcoholic struggling with a cocaine problem. This play is as fresh as todays headlines. But the most intriguing character turns out to be Matt, the candidates advisor. He envies Lisa and Toms relationship, yet he admits to putting his job over his personal life, even if it destroys his relationships. Hes Republican, gay and fairly closeted, working for a politician who has said being gay is an abomination and who actively works against granting Matt and other gay people their equal rights. Matt is a highly conflicted person, and Mr. Binder plays him perfectly. Wonderfully expressive, he shows the struggles beneath his characters friendly, professional faade. All three characters in this play grapple with staying true to themselves; its Matt, however, who has wrestled with that dilemma for decades, and not always successfully. The God Game should appeal to both Republicans and Democrats; Ms. Bradbeer has written this play in such an ingenious way that it never takes sides or, when it seems to, it suddenly tilts again. Its almost like a political version of Doubt, where the viewers emotions and sympathies shift continually. As the director, Ms. Coury has put some nice little touches in: Toms little victory dance, Lisas silent prayer. And then theres Toms suddenly thicker Southern accent when hes talking to his constituents. At times the pace seems a little too fast, and sometimes when Tom talks about political matters, he sounds as if hes reciting lines, not talking about things hes passionate about. The God Game presents a lot of issues and raises a lot of questions, but doesnt spoon feed us any answers. And I love it for that. I only wish there had been a talkback on opening night; I would have loved to hear what others thought. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The God Game>> When: Through Feb. 9 >> Where: Gulfshore Playhouse, The Norris Center, Naples >> Cost: Tickets start at $33 >> Info: (866) 811-4111 or www.gulfshoreplayhouse.org PEDRO ZEPEDA / COURTESY PHOTOSAbove: Jeffrey Binder and Laurence Lau.

Located just north of Vanderbilt Beach Road on U.S. 41 Is it worth $10? NoThe story of a squirrel banished from his home whos later forced to save the day should not be a tough nut to crack, and for the most part the makers of The Nut Job succeed in making a mildly amusing animated film aimed directly at kids. Be warned, though: Theres not much here for adults, and even at less than 90 minutes it feels tedious and repetitive. Surly (Will Arnett) is a squirrel who insists he doesnt need friends to be happy. With winter approaching and a food shortage looming, he accidentally burns down the oak tree he and his fellow animals call home. Banished from the park and forced to live in the city, Surly and his friend Buddy, a rat, stumble upon a nut store that seems to be the answer to their problems. Unfortunately, the guys running the nut store are burglars plotting to tunnel into the bank next door. The criminals, led by a fresh-from-prison Mafioso type named King (Stephen Lang) and his dog Precious (Maya Rudolph), see Surly as a trivial nuisance. Meanwhile, animal leader Raccoon (Liam Neeson) dispatches squirrels Andie (Katherine Heigl) and park hero Grayson (Brendan Fraser) to the city to collect food. Naturally their paths collide with Surly, prompting high jinks and betrayals to ensue. Director and co-writer Peter Lepeniotis apparently had no intention of appealing to adults with this film, seemingly content with its Saturday morning cartoon-quality aspirations and willfully void of social commentary. Fair enough. Not every movie needs to be deep and thought provoking; it can only be as good as its trying to be, and in this case, thats not much of a compliment. The story is expectedly conventional, and there were long gaps between the sounds of children laughing at the screening I attended. Perhaps that was because of sequences such as this one: Upon discovering a room full of nuts and screaming that he had found the lost city of Nutlantis, Surly says, Sorry about that, went a little nuts, and then asks Buddy if he just said anything stupid. Yes, Surly, you did, and the sound of crickets in my head throughout the sequence didnt shield me from any of your stupid comments. As a whole, the dialog by Lorne Cameron is cutesy and forgettable, and not at all funny. The 3D is also unimpressive. It mostly falls flat save for a few scenes with nuts and water flying into our faces. The colors are fair but not dynamic, and the backgrounds are a blurry mess. The Nut Job was made by ToonBox Entertainment then picked up for distribution by Open Road Films last April, making it the first animated release in Open Roads two-year history. With financial prospects limited due to its release coming the weekend of Oscar nominations and Frozen still a hit in theaters, The Nut Job could well be the studios last animated venture. Heres hoping the studio sticks to dramas (it gave us End of Watch and The Grey) and becomes more selective with its other fare. CAPSULESHer (Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, voice of Scarlett Johansson) In the near future, a loner (Mr. Phoenix) purchases and falls in love with a computer operating system (Ms. Johansson) designed with human emotions. With a great original screenplay from writer/director Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things Are), this is a smart movie that offers a plausible look at the future and what it means to be in a relationship. Rated R.August: Osage County (Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Abigail Breslin) The dysfunctional Weston family convenes in its rural Oklahoma home after the patriarch goes missing. The performances are top notch and the story has a few surprises up its sleeve. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tracy Letts, who wrote the screenplay. Rated R.Lone Survivor (Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster) Four members of Navy SEAL Team 10 are caught in a gunfight in the Afghan mountains in June 2005. The action is tense and exciting, and overall its a solid movie, though its unforgivable to reveal who the lone survivor is in the opening moments. Rated R. >> The Nut Job is based on director/cowriter Peter Lepeniotis 2005 animated short called Surly Squirrel. LATEST FILMSThe Nut Job a l a a p o s danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com

Naples shares much with these other sophisticated cities. All offer inspiration and uplifting experiences. Now they share another commonality: a Jewish film festival. This March at The Norris Center in Cambier Park, the inaugural season of A Journey of Jewish Impact is scheduled for four of the five Monday nights. True to most festivals, this one offers something for everyone in the four genres represented: comedy, drama, documentary and classic love story. The festival explores a variety of ways to emphasize provocative Jewish thought and story lines depicted through the medium of film. Heres the lineup of Monday-night screenings: March 3: The Zig Zag Kid Shown at the most recent Jewish film festivals in Boston and Toronto, the award-winning film focuses on a boy who aspires to become a good detective like his father but constantly gets into trouble. Just before his Bar Mitzvah, hes sent to an uncle who is tasked with getting him turned around. In two days. Hilarity ensues. March 17: Kaddish for a Friend Poignant and dramatically charged yet wryly funny, this is a film about tolerance, guilt, forgiveness and healing. A Palestinian who learned while in a refugee camp to hate Jews must somehow make peace with his enemy. The pivotal relationship crosses deep ethnic and religious divisions between Jews and Arabs. March 24: Orchestra of Exiles This film presents the back story of the formation of what later became the Israeli Philharmonic. March 31: Remembrance The festival wraps up with this story of a romance between a Polish partisan and a German-Jewish woman. When they escape a Nazi death camp, each goes a different way, convinced the other has perished. But maybe not. Based on actual events, this film reinforces the belief that hope never dies. Festival organizers see it as a good way to leave the audience hungry for the second annual festival. SEE FILMS, C13 March 3: The Zig Zag Kid

The most valuable things in an 18th-century American home were linens, bedcovers and drapes. The wealthy could import fabrics from Europe. The average family made their own fabric. They raised sheep or plants, sheared the sheep or harvested the plants, and went through many steps to make thread, color it and weave it into cloth. Then the cloth had to be cut and sewn into clothing or household items. So it is not surprising that the sewing supplies in a well-to-do home were stored in a special sewing worktable in the main room. The women of the household could take out the fabric and sew whenever there was time. It often was a winter job done while sitting near a fireplace. Most sewing stands looked like small tables and stood about 28 inches high, the height of a desk. There was a drawer to hold sewing tools, needles, thread, scissors and measuring tape. Many were made with a large fabric bag hanging below the drawer, accessible when the top of the table was lifted. It is a form not seen in the average 20th-century home, so when the bag is missing from a table, collectors may not realize theyre looking at a sewing table with a missing part. An October 2013 Skinner auction offered an early 19th-century sewing table missing its original bag. The maple and mahogany worktable with an attractive patterned top sold for $3,900.Q: My mother bought a beautiful American Character doll for my 9th birthday in 1932. The dolls eyes open and close and her mouth is open in a smile that shows her teeth. She cant say Mama anymore, but other than that she is in fine shape. Can you tell me her present value?A: The American Character Doll Co. was founded in New York City in 1919. The company made baby dolls, toddler dolls, mama dolls and other dolls in several sizes. The dolls were made of composition, rubber or hard plastic. American Character dolls were high-end dolls with well-made clothes. Although they sold for only a few dollars in the 1920s and s, they were expensive at the time. The companys best years were in the 1950s and early s when its Betsy McCall and Tiny Tears dolls were so popular. American Character Doll Co. went out of business in 1968 and its molds were sold to Ideal. Its impossible to suggest a value for your doll without knowing exactly which American Character doll you have. But the loss of its voice lowers the value. American Character dolls sell for prices from under $100 to a high of a few hundred dollars.Q: What is a Mickey Mouse telephone insulator? I keep getting that reference when I check online for Mickey Mouse collectibles.A: Most telephone insulators, the glass pieces at the top of telephone poles that hold the wires, have rounded tops. A few varieties have protruding pieces that make the insulator look like a silhouette of Mickey Mouses head. The protruding pieces look like large ears. Because the name and shape are unusual, these insulators are popular with collectors.Q: I have a heavy brass letter opener marked Harlow, Breed & Cooley Wool, 184 Summer St., Boston. Does it have any value? A: Harlow, Breed & Cooley were wool dealers in Boston from about 1912 until about 1926. Advertising letter openers made of brass sell for under $20 to over $100, depending on the design. Q: I paid $50 for a hanging scale I bought at a yard sale. The scale says, Pelouze Mfg. Co., Makers, Chicago, USA, patent pending. It can weigh items up to 20 pounds. Can you tell me its possible value? A: William N. Pelouze founded Pelouze Scale and Manufacturing Co. in Chicago in 1894. The company made several different kinds of scales. It eventually was bought by Rubbermaid, which was bought by Newell Co. in 1999. Pelouze scales are now being made by Newell Rubbermaid. The price of a collectible is what someone will pay for it. You paid $50 for the scale, so it was worth that much to you. Other similar scales have sold for $35 to $60. Tip: Put ceramic saucers or glass or plastic plant holders under vases of flowers or potted plants to protect your furniture. You can buy inexpensive throwaway plastic dishes that have a rim and are exactly the right size and shape for a planter. Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 WEEK OF JANUARY 23-29, 2014 Dont miss it!THE ART SHOW (Just South of Coastland Center Mall on Fleischmann Blvd. at Goodlette-Frank Road) Naples Jazz Orchestra and The von Liebig welcome guest musicians for new seriesThe Naples Art Association and the Naples Jazz Orchestra present Music and the Arts, a lively discussion series featuring musicians from the NJO concert schedule. Described as the ultimate backstage experience for music lovers, guests will spend time with members of the NJO and their guest artists at The von Liebig Art Center before the musicians take to the stage for a performance in the band shell at Cambier Park next door to the art center. Music and the Arts programs begin at 4:30 p.m. in the upstairs library at the art center. The guest artist Monday, Jan. 27, is conductor Michael Berkowitz. Mr. Berkowitz, whom conductor/composer Johnny Green has called a drummer/conductor extraordinaire, has performed as a drummer for Henry Mancini, Liza Minnelli, Michael Crawford, Billy Joel, Sting, Elton John and Bette Midler. He has conducted for Marvin Hamlisch, Roberta Flack, Maureen McGovern, Michael Feinstein and Sarah Brightman and has led orchestras including the Boston Pops, the London Symphony, the Cincinnati Pops, the North Carolina Symphony and the National Symphony. He is also featured on recordings with Steve Lawrence, Placido Domingo and Linda Eder, among many others. On Feb. 3, the NJO and the Naples Art Association welcome jazz pianist and singer Freddy Cole, the lesser-known yet equally talented younger brother of Nat King Cole. Now 82, he is, at last, receiving the recognition he so richly deserves. A screening of the short film The Cole Nobody Knows will start the program. The award-winning documentary examines the complicated journey of creating a career in the shadow of a famous sibling. Photographed in Atlanta, New York City, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Switzerland and France, it is also a journey through the Great American Songbook with Freddy Cole and his quartet. Following the reception, Mr. Cole will take to the stage with the Naples Jazz Orchestra for a swinging big band concert. Tickets to Music and the Arts programs are $75 and include wine and COURTESY PHOTOSDrummer/conductor Michael Berkowitz conducts the NJO and is the guest of honor at Music and Art on Monday, Jan. 27.

TheatreZone presents the upper-crust musical comedy Feb. 6-16 at the G&L Theatre at Community School of Naples. With music and lyrics by Cole Porter and book by Arthur Kopit, the play is based on Phillip Barrys The Philadelphia Story. The action revolves around the imminent wedding of a socialite whose ex-husband arrives with mischief planned to get the attention of the woman he still loves. Of course, the reporter covering the wedding falls for the bride, too, just to stir the complexity. The classic 1939 drawing-room comedy about life among the rich and charming chronicles the comeuppance of Tracy Lord, a young and beautiful American aristocrat of glacial comportment and little tolerance for human frailty, says director Mark Danni. In the course of preparing for her wedding to a man for whom she is ill suited, Tracy is pulled from her pedestal, a process that lets her learn to bend and acquire a human heart, he adds. Mr. Barry created the role of Ms. Lord for Katharine Hepburn, who turned it into a personal triumph onstage and in the 1940 film that also starred Cary Grant and James Stewart. For the TheatreZone production, real life husband-and wife actors Gerritt VanderMeer and Carolann Sanita play the lead roles of exes Dexter Haven and Tracy Lord. Michael Lundy plays reporter Mike Connor. The TheatreZone cast also includes Karen Molnar as society reporter Liz Imbrie, Charlotte Atkins as Ms. Lords grumpily precious younger sister Dinah, Charles Fornara as the fianc George Kittredge (the dullest man on earth), Wayne Morton as absent-minded Uncle Willie and David Goguen and Mary Sytsma as Mr. and Mrs. Lord, the parents of the bride. Music direction is by Michael Horsley, and choreography by Karen Molnar. Costumes are by Kathleen Kolacz, lighting by Anne Carncross and sound/multimedia by Tim Frank. Stage manager is Danielle Ranno. Tickets for $45 and $50 are on sale now. Call (888) 966-3352, visit www.theatrezoneflorida.com or stop by the box office Wednesdays between 10 a.m. and noon.

On Tuesday, March 11, at 10 p.m., ABC will premiere a new series called Mind Games, which stars Christian and Steve Zahn. They play brothers Ross (Christian) and Clark Edwards (Steve), who are partners in Edwards and Associates, an unusual business based on the belief that peoples decisions are influenced by their environment in ways theyre not aware.

The highly anticipated premiere of the hit fantasy/drama series is set for April 6 at 9 p.m. on HBO. The TV series, which is based on the books series by George R.R. Martin, shocked audiences at the end of last season with the infamous Red Wedding, and season fours 10 episodes will prove to be just as exciting. It will be roughly based on the second half of A Storm of Swords, the third book in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Q: Any news about Devious Maids? Pamela G., via emailA: I have two exciting bits to tell you: First, season two will premiere on Lifetime on April 20 at 10 p.m. Second, Mark Deklin (whom you all know I LOVED on GCB) has signed on as a regular cast member.

Once inside you will be enveloped by the charm, hospitality and fine cuisine of France. Chef/owner Patrick Fevrier and his wife Jackie are the consummate hosts. Revel in a superb wine list, crusty French bread and any of seven escargot appetizers. Also noteworthy is the house-cured salmon lightly rubbed with coffee. Yellowtail medallions were lightly dressed in lemon-b utter caper sauce and a nightly special called Bacchus began with a tender filet mignon topped with escargots, portobello mushrooms, green peppercorns and merlot sauce. Sides of unadulterated mashed sweet potatoes and green beans were just right. There are lovely souffles for dessert or moulleux au chocolat, the chef's elegant and excellent take on lava cake. (Have it with the suggested glass of Rasteau, a sweet wine with chocolate notes.) Never mind the location this is an exceptional restaurant. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere:Reviewed October 2013 Masa, Mercato, 9123 Strada Place, Naples; 598-0887 Masa successfully bridges old-world Mexican cooking and modern approaches and ingredients. A venture of the DAmico Family of Restaurants, which includes Campiellos and Caf Lurcat in Naples, Masa has only one other location, in Minneapolis. But the concept, from drinks to dessert to decor, is so clearly defined and seamlessly executed that it would be a welcome addition to any citys dining scene. Expect to find a range from traditional to trendy: richly flavored cocoainfused chicken mole, say, as well as a ceviche pairing snapper and shrimp with bits of fried plantain and diced mango. Even chili rellenos gets a new twist courtesy of a roasted jalapeno filled with crumbled chorizo, apples and Chihuahua cheese. A sampler platter of tacos, sopes and tamales would be a welcome addition; the tamales alone were redolent of freshground corn and came with rave-worthy frijoles churros studded with pork. For dessert you cant go wrong with lush tres leches cake or churros dipped in molten chocolate. Masas modern Mexican food, stylish atmosphere and stellar service will leave you wanting mas. Full bar. Food: Service:Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2013 Patio Cafe, 10711 U.S. 41 N., Naples, 260-1075 For buttermilk pancake devotees, the ones served here are reason enough to pay a visit. But the diner-style cafe open for breakfast, lunch and dinner has other good points as well, including its broad and inexpensive menu, an attractive dining room with roomy booths and a goodsized patio for al fresco dining. A mushroom and Swiss omelette was suitably fluffy, although some salt and pepper added before cooking would have given it more flavor. Classic pot roast was fork tender and flavorful, as were the accompanying mashed potatoes. Skip the hohum mixed veggies. Rice pudding with cinnamon and whipped cream was a good finish to the meal. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2012 Texas Tonys BBQ Shack, 4519 Tamiami Trail East, Naples; 7328392 A side venture of the Phelan family, owners of the locally grown Pinchers Crab Shacks, Texas Tonys is plastered with Lone Star State flags, horseshoes and longhorn antlers. The decor has a studied rusticity. The loaded chopped pork nachos did not showcase the meat as well as it should have, and the boom boom shrimp lost their batter in a sea of spicy cream sauce. But the spicerubbed baby back ribs had a good, charry bark along the edges, while the meat remained incredibly tender and had the all-important pink smoke ring. A quarter chicken was super-moist, and the meat slipped easily off the bone. Its darkly varnished skin was visible evidence of the restaurants smoker, which uses orangewood, a subtle alternative to the stronger hickory or oak. The star of the meal was the Texan, a huge sandwich of super-tender brisket, cole slaw, pickles, onions and barbecue sauce served on Texas toast. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2012 Wylds Caf, 4271 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 947-0408 Three local, classically trained chefs opened Wylds in 2005 with a broadly American but European-influenced menu. Today, food remains creatively conceived and consistently well executed, and the service staff exhibits a level of polish youd expect in tonier locations. Wylds offers some appetizers widely available, but served here with a twist. Escargot, for instance, were draped with garlic cream sauce and tucked into a little boat of crisp prosciutto; the s alty ham and petite salad of peppery arugula provided good counterpoints for the lush sauce. A roast duck Napoleon was too big for an appetizer, but was nonetheless delicious with its flaky pastry, succulent meat, tender mushrooms and garlicky bchamel sauce. The Parmesan-crusted walleye proved an excellent showcase for this flaky white Northern fish. When it comes to pork chops, it doesnt get much better than Wylds select heirloom Kurobuta chop, with its slightly charred exterior and fatmarbled pink interior. Beer and wine served.

Some details:ALTOCharles Mereday has been stirring things up with his elegant and delicious Meredays Fine Dining at Naples Bay Resort. In early February, hell also open ALTO, a classic supper club reminiscent of the acclaimed (now closed) Zanzibar Blue in Philadelphia. It was my first job as an executive chef and it stuck with me, he says. I dined there some years ago and it stuck with me, too, for the wonderful upscale soul food, the cozy atmosphere and the great music. Mr. Mereday plans to bring all of that to the new Bayfront space, including national headliners along with local and regional musicians. Heading up the kitchen will be his first culinary mentor, chef Nadir Sherwani, who leaves a prestigious job on Californias Catalina Island to partner with Mr. Mereday. Hes extremely talented, says Mr. Mereday. Im excited. Hes excited. A sampling of the menu includes: basil-fed escargot, Florida black mussel souffl, fontina bechamel crepes, leek tart, smoked salmon or lamb and beef kefta flatbread, watercress salad, 28-ounce prime T-bone, pompano en papillote, braised Palmetto Creek Farms pork shank, steak Diane and Arrow Ranch squab. As at Meredays, the emphasis will be on high-quality ingredients expertly rendered, but dishes will be a bit more casual and there will be more large plates. With seating for 200, ALTO is expected to open Feb. 7. Its at 492 Bayfront Place. Call 404-5014, visit www. altonaples.com or ALTO Naples on Facebook.The Cider Press CafeFlorida inspired, modernist, plantbased cuisine, in a casual yet elegant setting is the concept touted on The Cider Press Cafs Facebook page. Heading up the culinary team is chef Johan Everstijn, former chef de cuisine of Matthew Kenney OKC, one of Forbes Magazines Top 10 Restaurants in America of 2011 and Shape Magazines Places to Eat Before You Die. If the photos on the Facebook page are any indication, even hard-care carnivores will be smitten. The caf, which is expected to open any day now, will serve local organic produce, using the latest techniques in food preparation to create sophisticated, healthful dishes. Food temperature will be kept below 117F to ensure the maximum flavor and freshness, while preserving nutrients and enzymes. A few items I spied on the site: portobello churrasco with chimichurri, pineapple yellow aji and cauliflower two ways; oyster mushroom-passion fruit ceviche with crispy corn chips; and sous vide vegetable terrine with butternut squash, beet, golden beet, avocado, turnip, chimichurri. The bar will serve fresh juices, smoothies, ciders and house-brewed kombuchas, wines, beers and wine-based cocktails. The cafs modern interior is designed by the architecture firm of Dyehouse and Comierato, using American-made products and sustainable materials and featuring historical farming artifacts, including a restored apple cider press from 1869 and bar stools made from recycled tractor seats. The cafe is at Pipers Crossing, 1201 Piper Blvd. (Immokalee and Airport-Pulling roads). Check out the restaurants Facebook page for the latest info.

Flamingos, alligators, parrots and native birds fill the almost 80-yearold botanical garden. Come walk on a swinging bridge with scores of alligators swimming and crawl ing beneath you. The Everglades Wonder Gardens recently got a bit of a makeover after John Brady and his family took over the attrac tion six months ago.

Aside from the wildlife and extensive plants and trees, there is a museum with preserved wild life, a photo gallery, koi pond and butterfly garden. We have really a little bit of everything, Ryan Brady said. There is nothing fancy or high tech about the Won der Gardens just the feel of a real roadside attraction from days gone by.

It doesnt take physical strength to fly a jetpack, but the sensitive steering takes getting used to. Each jetpack setup includes a gas-powered motor that stays in a pod in the water. A long black hose connects the pod to the pack, allowing it to rise as much as 30 feet above the water and travel anywhere on its surface. Through a headset, a jetpack operator guides you through the pro cess and can even control you remotely if youre having trouble. Teenagers to seniors have enjoyed jetpack rides, says Capt.

DSC59 Dr. Domingo E. Galliano Jr.MD, FACS, FASCRSwww.gallianosurgery.com General SurgeryColon and Rectal Surgery Surgical Critical Care New surgical technique eases pain, recovery timeDr. Domingo E. Galliano Jr., director of robotic surgery at Peace River Regional Medical Center, provides the latest in painless, minimally invasive robotic surgery, medical testing and care in the treatment of gastrointestinal conditions. In fact, he recently performed the first robotically assisted, single-incision gall bladder surgery ever performed in Charlotte or Lee counties. This exciting new procedure with the da Vinci Surgical System is a surgeons dream, Dr. Galliano said. With this new procedure, patients can now have their gallbladder removed through a small incision buried in their belly button, where no visible scar can be seen. Robot-assisted minimally invasive surgical procedures can result in significantly less pain, less discomfort and minimal scarring. The da Vinci System is a stateof-the-art surgical platform with 3D, highdefinition vision and patented surgical instruments that take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. By overcoming the challenges of traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world. According to Dr. Galliano, We use the most up-to-date medical equipment used in the testing and treatment of medical and surgical conditions. Most surgery can be performed with minimal discomfort on an outpatient basis, and in some cases, with no incisions. Minimally invasive procedures are performed through one or more dimesized incisions, with much less trauma to the body. Patients get the highest-quality care available in his state-of-the-art, Medicare accredited, state-licensed surgery center, says Dr. Galliano. This avoids treatment in the hospital, reduces cost, and lessens pain, scarring and recovery time, he said. You may be a candidate for minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery. Using state-ofthe-art technology, the da Vinci System enables delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with breakthrough vision, precision, dexterity and control, Dr. Galliano said. Da Vinci Surgery is used to treat such colorectal conditions as: colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulitis, and inflamma tory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohns disease). Surgery to remove all or part of the colon is known as a colectomy. Rectal cancer surgery is known as a low anterior resection. Da Vinci offers patients facing colon surgery (right, left or sigmoid colectomy) such potential benefits as: low blood loss, quicker return to bowel function and diet and a short hospital stay Da Vinci offers patients facing rectal cancer surgery (low anterior resection and APR) such potential benefits as: excellent clinical outcomes for cancer control, quick return to bowel function and diet, less blood loss and shorter hospital stay and recovery time. Robotic/laparoscopic surgery also is used for gallbladder and colon resection, adrenalectomy (adrenal gland resection), hernia repair, anti-reflux (GERD), appendectomy, and ventral and inguinal hernia repair. As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is specific to each patient, condition and procedure. It is important to talk to your doctor about all treatment options, including the risks and benefits. This information can help you make the best decision for your situation. GERD treatments can be easy on the stomachGERD is a chronic digestive dis ease that occurs when stomach acid or, occasionally, bile flows back (refluxes) into your food pipe (esophagus). The backwash of acid irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD signs and symptoms. According to Dr. Domingo E. Galliano, Some people are born with a naturally weak sphincter (LES). For others, how ever, fatty and spicy foods, certain types of medication, tight clothing, smoking, drinking alcohol, vigorous exercise or changes in body position (bending over or lying down) may cause the LES to relax, causing reflux. A hiatal hernia (a common term for GERD) may be pres ent in many patients who suffer from GERD, but may not cause symptoms of heartburn. Signs and symptoms of GERD include acid reflux and heartburn. Both are common digestive conditions that most peo ple experience from time to time. When these signs and symptoms occur more than twice each week or interfere with your daily life, doctors term this GERD, says Dr. Galliano. In addition, most people can manage the discomfort of heartburn with lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications. But for people with GERD, these remedies may offer only temporary relief. Patients who do not respond well to lifestyle changes or medications, or those who continually require medica tions to control their symptoms, will have to live with their condition or may undergo a surgical procedure. Surgery is very effective in treating GERD. Laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery (commonly referred to as laparoscopic nissen fundoplication) involves reinforc ing the valve between the esophagus and the stomach by wrapping the upper portion of the stomach around the low est portion of the esophagus much the way a bun wraps around a hot dog. According to Dr. Galliano, in a lapa roscopic procedure, surgeons use small incisions (1/4 to 1/2 inch) to enter the abdomen through cannulas (narrow tube-like instruments). The laparoscope, which is connected to a tiny video cam era, is inserted through the small inci sion, giving the surgeon a magnified view of the patients internal organs on a television screen. The entire operation is performed inside after the abdomen is expanded by inflating gas into it. TIF (transoral incisionless fundopli cation) with the EsophyX device is the first procedure that provides an inci sionless solution for correcting the root cause of GERD, an anatomic defect at the gastroesophageal junction. Inserted through the patients mouth, under visual guidance of an endoscope, the EsophyX device is used to reconstruct a durable antireflux valve and tighten the LES (lower esophageal sphincter), reestab lishing a barrier to reflux and restoring the competency of the gastroesopha geal junction. The result is the effective elimination of GERD, says Dr. Galliano. Recent clinical studies show that at two years following the procedure, 85 percent of patients are still heartburn-free and 79 percent are still off daily PPIs. Since TIF is non-invasive and repeat able, it offers the best of both worlds the high effectiveness of a surgical repair and the low complication rate of a transoral approach.

Hernias typically occur in the abdominal wall cav-ity, but the areas near the natural openings in the groin (inguinal), below the groin (femoral) or through the navel (umbilical) are among the most common.Another common type of hernia is incisional, which is to say the hernia is in an area where there has previously been a surgical incision. ese types of hernias are fairly common among patients who have had a bowel resection or open gall bladder surgery, and women who have undergone total abdominal hysterectomy.One thing is certain about hernias: they do not always resolve, even after a surgical procedure.

Whereas incisional hernias can occur in areas where the abdomi-nal wall has been weakened by a previous surgery, recurrent incisional hernias are those that return even after having been repaired.Patients in this group are truly facing a dilemma: each time they have their hernia repaired, it seems to heal. en, within a period of months or even years, the hernia returns, usually worse than ever. Many of these patients go from doctor to doctor, sometimes being told to lose a hundred pounds or more before additional surgery can be attempted.As few general surgeons want to take on these challeng-ing cases, the patients often end up going through life wearing an abdominal binder under their clothes the same type of binder used to keep a surgical site stable after abdominal surgery.Like a girdle, the abdominal binder is a way to hold everything in place, but it is hardly a long-term solution: beneath it, the patient still has a large abdominal bulge, and underneath that their external and internal oblique muscles, and rectus abdominus muscle all the muscles that hold in the intestines and bowel have lost their shape.Fortunately, there is now a solution for these complex hernia cases.Domingo E. Galliano, Jr., MD, FACS, FASCRS, has received advanced training in Cleveland, OH for a minimally invasive procedure known as reconstruction of the abdominal wall, or complex abdominal wall reconstruction. Dr. Galliano is a surgeon in the Charlotte County area who is currently performing this leading-edge surgery.During the procedure, the surgeon actually performs a closure of the complex abdominal wall defect. Even in situations where all of the abdominal muscles have separated, and the patients internal organs are not COLON AND RECTAL SURGERYbeing held back by the muscles anymore, Dr. Galliano can use the advanced surgical technique to provide a solution. Recently, he held a screening session for hernias where half a dozen patients who attended were suering with these specific types of hernias. Some were candidates for complex abdominal wall reconstruction.If you are suffering from recurrent hernias and are unsure where to go; if you have been turned away by hospitals and surgeons; if no one else has been able to help you, then you may be a candidate for complex abdominal wall reconstruction. For an evaluation, call () -. FHCN Quite a number of conditions can affect the colorectal area, notes Dr. Galliano. One of the most dis -tressing and taboo is that of fecal incontinence/constipation.Perhaps even more isolating than the more well-known con -dition of urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and constipa-tion can be caused by a variety of factors, explains Dr. Galliano.The bowel function is controlled by three things: the sphincter, a muscle which keeps stool from leaking; the rectums storage capacity, or how much the rectum can stretch and hold stool before it must be released; and rectal sensation, the feel-ing that one must void a bowel movement.

DSC61 My wife is becoming hunched over and is never comfortable? What is causing this? Jonathan S. Daitch, MDBoard Certified, Pain Management Michael E. Frey, MD Board Certified, Pain Management F or Americans over age of 65, vertebral fractures account for 150,000 hospital admissions yearly, many associated with osteoporosis. Osteoporosis weakens bones, making them susceptible to fracture. The bones in your spine (vertebrae) protect the spinal cord and serve as the mainstay of your physical structure. Patients with vertebral fractures often have pain, difficulty moving, deformity (humpbacked) and even weakness. Initial treatment is often bed rest, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and wearing back braces, with surgery typically reserved for situations where the spinal cord is at risk, indicated by weakness or numbness in the legs. When conservative treatment does not help, a non-surgical technique maybe Vertebroplasty (ver-tee-bro-plastee). Vertebroplasty restores strength to the bone and helps to maintain its structure by filling in fractures with a dependable cement-like material that bonds readily to living bone. The 20 to 40 minute procedure allows most to resume normally in a day or two. Approximately 90% of patients have experienced prompt relief of pain, usually within a day of treatment. The in-office procedure is performed with involvement of Fluoroscopy, a special x-ray that gives the doctor imaging during the procedure. After imaging identifies specific areas of the bone, dye is injected to highlight the vertebrae and cement is applied. The syringe is removed and the cement hardens in minutes. For more of Vertebroplasty or any procedure that can help you (or someone you know) overcome back pain, call Advanced Pain Management & Spine Specialists at 239-437-8000.
