A2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Oral medications like Tykerb are now more affordable thanks in part to the efforts of Komen of SWFL. PERSPECTIVELocal Komen chapter a leader in public policy advocacy BY CHARLIE MYRICKExecutive director, Susan G. Komen Southwest FloridaAs a renowned nonprofit health organization, Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida feels that the Public Policy Collaborative is exceptionally important to its local community. Government legislation and programs that address lack of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment services due to lack of insurance have a positive influence on many individuals in this community. Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida feels that advocacy is a key aspect in raising awareness of the several preventable inequalities in breast cancer health. The mission of the Susan G. Komen Advocacy Alliance is to translate the promise to end breast cancer forever into action at all levels of government to discover and deliver the cures. The 2014 Komen Florida Public Policy Collaborative annual meeting was hosted by Komen Southwest Florida; State Sen. Lisbeth Benacquisto and her legislative aide attended a portion of the meeting. During the 2013 and 2014 legislative sessions, the three main policy issues were: Breast and cervical cancer early detection Breast cancer research The cancer drug parity act Legislative visits were made to both state and federal representatives to advocate on these issues by Komen staff and volunteers. Komen Southwest Florida, in conjunction with the Komen Florida Public Policy Collaborative, assisted in the passage of the Cancer Treatment Fairness Act (also known as the Oral Parity bill). Oral parity is intended to protect individuals with cancer from having to pay a high amount for oral cancer drugs under certain health insurance plans. Oral chemotherapy refers to any drug taken by mouth to treat cancer and it usually much more expensive than other types of chemotherapy. Komens involvement in this area has assured that, as of July, Florida residents will be given fair treatment regarding their cancer treatment. This is a major accomplishment and is inherently important for Floridas residents. The Komen Florida Public Policy Collaborative was formalized in the summer of 2012 by the six Komen Affiliates, including Central Florida, North Florida, Florida Suncoast, South Florida (West Palm Beach area), Southwest Florida and Miami / Fort Lauderdale. The Collaborative hosts an annual meeting at which the policy and legislative issues for the upcoming year are articulated and prioritized. These issues are determined considering the overall Susan G. Komen national policy directives, as well as those that are state specific and likely to result in improving the quality of care for Florida residents affected by breast cancer. In Charlotte County, breast cancer services are limited due to the countys relative size. Therefore, health-care professionals must work more closely with medical providers and nonprofit organizations to ensure that residents move smoothly through the continuum of care. Komen Southwest Florida works closely with several organizations as it relates to breast health care. These nonprofit organizations work with a number of other local nonprofits and community resources including medical facilities. Komen Southwest Florida will assist in efforts towards ensuring residents move smoothly through the continuum of care by working more closely with available agencies in the breast health and breast cancer community. Komen Southwest Florida will continue to work with the other Komen Florida affiliates in the Komen Florida Public Policy Collaborative regarding additional public policy issues that affect cancer patients statewide. This will include continued legislative visits accomplished by members of Komen Southwest Floridas Public Policy Committee in order to discuss these important issues. Since 2002, Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida has awarded more than $6.6 million in grants to local agencies in the five-county area Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Glades and Hendry. Seventyfive percent of the affiliates net fundraising proceeds stays in the local community to provide education, screening, diagnostics, treatment and support; the remaining 25 percent of the net proceeds supports ground-breaking international breast cancer research. Susan G. Komen is the largest source of nongovernmental breast cancer research in the world. MYRICK BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH while they picture Pac-Man eating up their cancer cells. What about the people on the other side? The doctors who look in the mirror and tell their reflections, You did everything you could. The ones who search for success in every case, whether it be an early stage cure or advanced-stage comfort. For its annual breast cancer awareness issue, Florida Weekly turned to breast cancer surgeons, radiologists and oncologists, doctors who fight this disease day in and day out, asking them about the battle itself. How do they fight breast cancer, how do they survive? Heres what they had to say Dr. Elisabeth McKeen, private practitioner in oncology/ cancer genetics at Florida Cancer Specialists in Palm Beach County, has been practicing in oncology for over 30 years, specializing in breast oncology for the last two decades. She has a passion for cancer genetics, treats high-risk patients and enjoys speaking on preventive and survivorship issues.How do you do this day after day, how do you face off against breast cancer?It is a challenge and an honor to face breast cancer with my patients. Each patient and her or his cancer is unique, so it is always challenging. Breast cancer was the first cancer to have a targeted therapy. Tamoxifen was developed to block the estrogen receptor, found on the majority of breast cancer cells. We now know that there are at least four subtypes of breast cancer. Two have estrogen receptor docking stations for estrogen on the cell and can be treated with endocrine therapy, which alters estrogen metabolism. There are new drugs that help overcome resistance to these therapies. The HER2 positive group is an aggressive subtype; targeted therapies continue to be developed which have greatly improved the survival in these patients. The basal subtype or so-called triple negative breast cancer remains a challenge, but early diagnosis and better therapies are improving outcomes in this group. Early diagnosis with improved and safer mammography have led to much earlier diagnosis. Identifying women at high risk is important. How has your approach changed with technology? How has technology inspired or discouraged your attitude?One of the most encouraging technological advances has been our ability to identify genetic causes of breast cancer and thus offer enhanced surveillance, treatments and prophylactic surgery that has changed the course of cancer in families. We no longer are testing just for the breast cancer gene BRCA1 and BRCA2 but for many other genes in our search for the cause of cancer in a family. We are also checking the genes of the cancer itself to improve therapy. How do you bear seeing women with the same disease over and over? Do you get weary?What makes me weary is insurance issues, which affect all of us, whether or not we have been diagnosed with a minor ailment or cancer. Where do you find your successes?My successes are all those women and men who are the brave survivors of breast cancer. Where does your motivation come from? What keeps you going? Dont you ever just want to give up?My motivation is my patients. I want every patient to have the greatest chance for a cancer-free life. I want each patient to know that they are receiving the therapy that gives them the best chance for a successful treatment and with the best quality of life. Anything else you want to say?My challenge is to help these survivors thrive after breast cancer and its treatment. Dr. John Rimmer, fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Royal College of Surgeons in England and Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh, Scotland, member of the American Society of General Surgeons and American Society of Breast Surgeons, serves as medical director of the Kristin Hoke Breast Health Program at Jupiter Medical Center. How do you do this day after day, how do you face off against breast cancer?Unfortunately, doctors see a lot of people with problems every day. Breast cancer, from my perspective, there are a lot of good things going on in breast cancer. If you look at it one way, it can be a depressing disease. We always say that the closest you can get to a cure for breast cancer is early diagnosis, and thats true. So every day that I go to work, we aim to diagnose breast cancer as early as possible because people who are diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer are going to have a very high chance of a cure. So thats really what makes me come to work every day, so that we can do that, change the paradigm of breast cancer. How has your approach changed with technology? How has technology inspired or discouraged your attitude?Using new technology, particularly 3-D mammograms, ultrasound, MRI, enable us to treat breast cancer at an earlier stage. One of the interesting things that were using more now is what we call risk assessment, so that we can identify women who seem to be at high risk for breast cancer The most important thing that puts a woman at increased risk of breast cancer is her family history, so were designing our programs to be able to identify women who seem to be at high risk If we can identify them before they get breast cancer, then we can discuss with them possible genetic testing, and if we can identify BRCA1 or BRCA2 or genetic mutation carriers like Angelina Jolie, we can think about things like more surveillance or possibly surgery to prevent them from getting breast cancer. When I think about that particular area you know we talk about the cure for breast cancer, the (Susan G.) Komen Foundation talks about the cure, finding the cure, race for the cure early diagnosis is very important. Its the closest thing we have to a cure, but when it comes to these high-risk patients, if we can test them and find out, reliably predict using our computer tools whether theyre at high risk for cancer and if they have a BRCA1 mutation, we can prevent them from getting breast cancer. And like the old adage goes, prevention is better than cure.How do you bear seeing women with the same disease over and over? Do you get weary?No. If you look at any physician or surgeon, if you look at data or quality measures around the country, you know everyones focused on quality nowadays, if you look at what makes people have better quality in what they do, one of the most important things is doing the same thing a lot. By focusing on breast cancer, we can improve the patient care. We learn more about it. We pick up more details about breast cancer. We treat different breast cancers in different ways. Breast cancer is not one disease. There are so many different types of breast cancer, each presentation of breast cancer can be slightly different from the other, so its not just one straightforward disease like pneumonia or gallbladder disease, its a very complex disease, so its very interesting, and we can do a lot to improve patient care and thats really what were all about. Where do you find your successes?Every single patient that comes back after weve treated them. They send me cards and they bring me gifts for Christmas. I have patients who send me a card every year when they were diagnosed with breast cancer years ago. Thats where I measure my success healthy, satisfied, happy patients.Where does your motivation come from? What keeps you going? Breast cancer is one of those things that everybody knows about. My mother had breast cancer. I am a physician. I am a surgeon. And Ive really dedicated my practice to breast cancer care. Its something thats a complicated situation. Its something we can change what we do, we can bring in the latest technology and surgical techniques from around the country, so that we have the latest technology at Jupiter Medical Center. Since weve been concentrating on breast cancer, the quality and technology that we have in Jupiter has really improved significantly. Bringing new technologies to our community is one of the things that really gives me a lot of satisfaction, so were continuing to bring things. As things change, we bring them here. We want to have the latest and greatest technology right here in Jupiter. Dont you ever just want to give up?No. If you look at the number of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer every year versus the number of women who die of breast cancer every year, those numbers are very different. A lot of women, 250,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in this country, and theres like 2 million women in this country living after the diagnosis of breast cancer. If you compare that to things like lung cancer and you look at the number of people who are diagnosed with lung cancer every year and the number of people who die of lung cancer every year, its about the same. So breast cancer is actually a good area to be in. By using our skills, our technology, we can really help a lot of women in a very positive, significant way. Things like lung cancer, for example, or pancreatic cancer, those are pretty depressing areas because a lot of time, even when we use new technologies we cant really change the outcome. With breast cancer, we can change the outcome for women in a real way. That gives me a lot of encouragement. Breast cancer is not a depressing disease. Its like crying, you cant get rid of it but you can control it. Anything else you want to say?October is breast cancer awareness month but women get breast cancer every month of the year. Its always difficult in October to give a different message. Really, the message of breast cancer is about educating women. During October everyone kind of gets a little bit turned off by it and if youre somebody who doesnt have a personal experience with breast cancer its everywhere the pink syndrome everything turning pink, some people get turned off by it, but when I see a young woman who has a lump and she went to see the doctor, or she felt the lump and someone told here not to worry about it, then she eventually comes up and shes got a more advanced breast cancer, thats a failure of education. When I see a woman who comes in here with breast cancer and she says to me, I always knew I was going to get breast cancer, and then she gets it, which happens, thats a failure of education If you look at the female population theres two groups of women who get breast cancer, theres what we call the sporadic group and then theres the genetic group, people like Angelina Jolie, she had a BRCA1 mutation, soon as anybody could identify her as having a BRCA1 mutation we know that she has up to an 85 percent chance of getting breast cancer in her lifetime and she has maybe about a 40 percent change of getting ovarian cancer in her lifetime, so we can predict whats going to happen If we can identify women before they get breast cancer and test them so that we can predict what happens to their future, we can change their future the message about education needs to be put out there every month, not just October.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 NEWS A9 BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH She recently received a patent for a postoperative compression bra. How do you do this day after day, how do you face off against breast cancer?The strength to approach breast cancer everyday comes from the knowledge that you have an opportunity to fix the problem. There is a tremendous amount of satisfaction as a surgeon to be able to remove a tumor. By removing the tumor, you allow that patient to move forward with their life. Having a breast tumor is a very stressful situation for every patient and I find that once the tumor is removed, patients have an immediate sense of relief. Being able to provide that comfort and relief for the patients and their families is extremely rewarding. How has your approach changed with technology? How has technology inspired or discouraged your attitude?Technology affects several different aspects of the surgical management of breast cancer. First, there are the tools used in the diagnosis of breast cancer, specifically imaging technology. The imaging modality that I think is the most influential on my surgical planning is the breast MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). There are several instances where my surgical plan has changed because of that one test. Breast MRI provides an image of the anatomy of the breast, as well as a functional image of the breast. The test evaluates the blood flow to visualize the tumors in the breast. I utilize the breast MRI to look for tumors that were not seen on mammography in the affected breast and to look for lesions in the opposite breast. If there are additional lesions that are visualized on breast MRI, then the surgical plan can change. Breast MRI is not perfect and with some of the less aggressive breast cancers, like DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ), it is less sensitive. Additionally, it has been criticized for potentially visualizing a lesion that is not a true lesion or a false positive. I think that these shortcomings of the test are acceptable and I think that the MRI will continue to play a significant role in the surgical decision process and is tremendously helpful in my practice. Secondly, there are tools that we use in the operating room to remove the breast tumors. One tool that I find helpful in addressing breast tumors is the Harmonic scalpel. This instrument allows tissue to be cut and coagulated at the same time using sound waves. This seals the small lymphatic vessels and blood vessels that are cut during the procedure, lessening uncomfortable fluid collections and bleeding that can occur in the breast tissue after surgery. The other tool for breast surgery that I have personally been developing is a postoperative compression surgical bra. I designed and patented a bra for patients after their breast surgery. The role of the postoperative compression bra is to support the breast tissue after surgery. The bra provides comfort and the compression decreases the volume that can become filled with fluid in the breast tissue after surgery. This potentially decreases bruising, fluid collections and provides patients less pain after their breast surgery. Technology advances the care for breast cancer and impr oves outcomes.How do you bear seeing women with the same disease over and over? Do you get weary?The surgeon is typically the first member of the multidisciplinary team to encounter the breast cancer patient. The patients are very scared, mainly from the anxiety of the unknown. By educating the person about the breast cancer, you can comfort that individual. I feel that it is my responsibility to let the person know that this is not a hopeless situation and that they are going to have an entire team of caring individuals to help them get through the breast cancer journey. Thankfully, the majority of people that I encounter, we are able to treat successfully. I consider each patient I see as another opportunity to provide a service that can potentially save his or her life. That doesnt make you weary, it empowers you to do all that you can for those individuals.Where do you find your successes?Successes are all around, in the grocery store, at the coffee shop, seeing the people that you have helped get through this devastating situation is heartwarming. To see their successful transition back to their lives makes me extremely happy. I was delighted to be successful at navigating through the patent process and getting a patent issued for the postoperative compression bra that could potentially make life better for women everywhere after surgery.Where does your motivation come from? What keeps you going? Dont you ever just want to give up?No, never give up. As the surgeon, you are there to help these patients in their time of need. You cant back down, you have to keep moving forward. In the treatment of breast cancer, there are tremendously more successes than failures. At the end of the day, you have to know that you did your best for that patient. You did everything that you could to help them. Regardless of the outcome, you have to have comfort in knowing that you did everything that you possibly could. Motivation comes from the patients and their families and your desire to treat them.Anything else you want to say?I sometimes wish that surgery was all that people needed to fix their breast cancer. I also wish that after you remove the breast tumor that there was no opportunity for the breast cancer to come back. But surgery alone does not eliminate the breast cancer, or the risk of the breast cancer coming back. The other complimentary treating physicians, the medical oncologists and the radiation oncologists contribute to the overall outc ome of the patient and their tools reduce the risk of the breast cancer coming back. I think especially with the care of breast cancer, it is more of a team approach, which contributes substantially to the successful outcomes for patients. Dr. Constantine Mantz, chief medical officer for 21st Century Oncology in Southwest Florida, has been involved in numerous radiation therapy research projects, published professional journal articles and presented abstracts, poster sessions and lectures at national meetings concerning cancer treatment.How do you do this day after day, how do you face off against breast cancer?I think any physician taking care of the cancer patient needs to establish realistic goals for any intervention and be convinced that each intervention will meaningfully benefit the patient. That means I need to believe that any treatment I prescribe will help the patient live longer and/or live better than without the treatment. Without that internal guidance, I believe an oncologist risks burning out with the end result being compromised care. How has your approach changed with technology? How has technology inspired or discouraged your attitude?In my field of radiation oncology, technical improvements over the past 10 years have allowed me to treat patients for whom no useful radiotherapy option was available previously. For example, stereotactic radiotherapy a highly complex form of high-dose, high-accuracy radiotherapy has expanded its indications to include treatment sites almost anywhere in the body to deliver ablative doses of radiation to destroy tumors. This technology now allows me to treat patients for whom no surgical or chemotherapeutic option otherwise does not exist and allow patients a better quality of life and survival. How do you bear seeing women with the same disease over and over? Do you get weary?Breast cancer patients are never boring. In addition to management of the disease itself, there is a totality of care that also needs to address psychosocial needs during treatment and cancer survivorship issues after treatment, which can vary tremendously across all the patients I see in my clinic.Where do you find your successes?I need to find success in every case, and the success is very different both in quality and quantity from patient to patient. For the early stage cancer patient, I strive toward cure and maintenance of body appearance and function. For the advanced-stage patient, I strive toward achieving comfort and maintaining quality of life. To the extent I can reach these goals defines success for me for every patient I treat.Where does your motivation come from? What keeps you going? Dont you ever just want to give up?My motivation came from personal experience with cancer in my family during my youth this event sparked my interest in cancer care. What keeps me going is the belief that I am helping my patients. If I ever stop believing this, then I would stop practicing.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH imaging, I play a crucial role in early detection of breast cancer. Knowing that I can find a cancer while it is small and still treatable is what allows me to face breast cancer every day.How has your approach changed with technology?Technology plays a large role in all forms of radiology, including breast imaging. I embrace the technological advances that occur in our field, and I constantly adapt to new technological developments. I was one of the first radiologists in the country to utilize digital breast tomosynthesis 3D mammography) which I believe will soon be the standard of care for mammography. I also played a crucial role in establishing the use of radioactive seeds to assist surgeons in excising breast cancer. This technology has significantly eased the scheduling hassles that have occurred for decades and has improved surgical results.How has technology inspired or discouraged your attitude?I am always looking for new ways to use technology to improve breast imaging and intervention. I believe that new technologies improve our ability to diagnose and treat breast cancer. I look forward to how future technologies will help in the fight against breast cancer.How do you bear seeing women with the same disease over and over?Despite being the same disease, every patient is different. Some patients are ready for whatever is about to occur, but others are very nervous and fearful. I see the patients early in the process, often when cancer is suspected, but not yet diagnosed. I try to ease a patients fears at a time when she is beginning an unfamiliar journey.Where do you find your successes?In an ideal world, I would never find a cancer; however, for now, breast cancer exists. I consider it a success when I detect a small cancer which would otherwise have gone undetected and would have grown. In these instances, I know the early detection likely has saved the patients life.Where does your motivation come from?My motivation comes from saving lives.What keeps you going? Knowing that the next patient may be the one whose life I save.Dont you ever just want to give up?No. As long as breast cancer continues to be a detectable and treatable disease when caught early, I will continue to do my part to find it.Anything else you want to say?Early detection of breast cancer is key to treating the disease. I believe that yearly screening mammograms, including 3D mammography, are crucial to diagnosing breast cancer early in the disease process while it can still be cured. Dr. Mary Kay Peterson, director of womens imaging at Radiology Regional Center in Southwest Florida, where she has worked for 15 years, has spoken internationally to other physicians, teaching the latest technology in breast imaging. A member of the Society for the Advancement of Womens Imaging, she has served as president of Partners for Breast Cancer Care and remains on the Lee County board. How do you do this day after day, how do you face off against breast cancer?Focusing on the positive, seeing women daily that get through the process and believing we will find a cure. How has your approach changed with technology?I may recommend additional studies in women with dense breasts and increased risk because of proven scientific benefit of newer technologies detecting cancer earlier. How has technology inspired or discouraged your attitude?Only inspired. We are making progress toward the end of this disease. How do you bear seeing women with the same disease over and over? Do you get weary?I dont bear anything. The diagnosed women do. Its my passion to do my best for them. Where do you find your successes?My tireless drive in caring for each patient as if they were my family. I have experienced breast cancer with my family and have walked the patients steps. Where does your motivation come from?My faith, the patient smiles and hugs, the outstanding staff I work with. What keeps you going?

A12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH Breast self exam: A good habit to start in your 20s THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETYBeginning in their 20s, women should be told about the benefits and limitations of breast self-exam (BSE). Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any changes to a health professional as soon as they are found. Finding a change does not necessarily mean there is a cancer. A woman can notice changes by being aware of how her breasts normally look and feel and by feeling her breasts for changes (breast awareness), or by choosing to use a step-by-step approach (with a BSE) and using a specific schedule to examine her breasts. The best time for a woman to examine her breasts is when they are not tender or swollen. Women who examine their breasts should have their technique reviewed during their periodic health exams by their health care professional. Women with breast implants can do BSE, too. It might be helpful to have your surgeon help identify the edges of the implant so that you know what you are feeling. There is some thought that the implants push out the breast tissue and may actually make it easier to examine. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also examine their breasts regularly. The following procedure for doing BSE is different from some previous recommendations. These changes represent an extensive review of the medical literature and input from an expert advisory group.While lying down Lie down and place your right arm behind your head. The exam is done while lying down, not standing up. This is because when a woman is lying down, the breast tissue spreads evenly over the chest wall and is as thin as possible, making it much easier to feel all the breast tissue. Use the pads of the three middle fingers on your left hand to feel for lumps in the right breast. Use overlapping dime-sized circular motions of the finger pads to feel the breast tissue. Use three levels of pressure to feel all the breast tissue: Light pressure is needed to feel the tissue closest to the skin; medium pressure to feel a little deeper; and firm pressure to feel the tissue closest to the chest and ribs. It is normal to feel a firm ridge in the lower curve of each breast, but you should tell your doctor if you feel anything else out of the ordinary. If youre not sure how hard to press, talk with your doctor or nurse. Use each pressure level to feel the breast tissue before moving on to the next spot. Move around the breast in an upand-down pattern starting at an imaginary line drawn straight down your side from the underarm and moving across the breast to the middle of the chest bone (sternum or breastbone). Be sure to check the entire breast area, going down until you feel only ribs and up to the neck or collarbone. There is some evidence to suggest that the up-and-down pattern (sometimes called the vertical pattern) is the most effective pattern for covering the entire breast, without missing any breast tissue. Repeat the exam on your left breast, putting your left arm behind your head and using the finger pads of your right hand to do the exam.While standing Stand in front of a mirror with your hands pressing firmly down on your hips. Look at your breasts for any changes of size, shape, contour. Look for dimpling and redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin. The pressing down on the hips position contracts the chest wall muscles and enhances any breast changes. Examine each underarm (can be done while sitting) with your arm only slightly raised so you can easily feel in this area. Raising your arm straight up tightens the tissue in this area and makes it harder to examine.

Recent evidence has confirmed that mammograms offer substantial benefit for women in their 40s. However, mammograms also have limitations. A mammogram will miss some cancers, and it sometimes leads to follow-up of findings that are not cancer, including biopsies. Mammograms for older women should be based on the individual, her health and other serious illnesses (including congestive heart failure, endstage renal disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and moderate-tosevere dementia). Age alone should not be the reason to stop having regular mammograms. As long as a woman is in good health and would be a candidate for treatment, she should continue to be screened with a mammogram. Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam (CBE) as part of a regular exam by a health professional at least every three years. After age 40, women should have a breast exam by a health professional every year. CBE is a complement to mammograms and an opportunity for women and their doctor or nurse to discuss changes in their breasts, early detection testing and factors in the womans history that might make her more likely to have breast cancer. Women at high risk for breast cancer based on certain factors should get an MRI and a mammogram every year. This includes women who. Have a lifetime risk of breast cancer of about 20 percent to 25 percent or greater, according to risk assessment tools that are based mainly on family history, including: Have a known BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation Have a first-degree relative (parent, brother, sister or child) with a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation, but have not had genetic testing themselves Had radiation therapy to the chest when they were between the ages of 10 and 30 years Have Li-Fraumeni syndrome, Cowden syndrome or BannayanRiley-Ruvalcaba syndrome, or have first-degree relatives with one of these syndromes The American Cancer Society recommends against MRI screening for women whose lifetime risk of breast cancer is less than 15 percent. For most women at high risk, however, screening with MRI and mammograms should begin at age 30 years and continue for as long as a woman is in good health. But because the evidence is limited about the best age at which to start screening, this decision should be based on shared decision making between patients and their health care providers, taking into account personal circumstances and preferences. Several risk assessment tools the Gail model, the Claus model and the Tyrer-Cuzick model, among others are available to help health professionals estimate a womans breast cancer risk. These tools give approximate, rather than precise, estimates of breast cancer risk based on different combinations of risk factors and different data sets. Because the different tools use different risk factors to estimate risk, they may give different risk estimates for the same woman. For example, the Gail model bases its risk estimates on certain personal risk factors, like current age, age at menarche (first menstrual period) and history of prior breast biopsies, along with any history of breast cancer in firstdegree relatives. In contrast, the Claus model estimates risk based only on family history of breast cancer in both first and second-degree relatives. These two models could easily give different estimates for the same person. Risk assessment tools (like the Gail model, for example) that are not based mainly on family history are not appropriate to use with the ACS guidelines to decide if a woman should have MRI screening. There is no evidence right now that MRI is an effective screening tool for women at average risk. MRI is more sensitive than mammograms, but it also has a higher false-positive rate (it is more likely to find something that turns out not to be cancer). This would lead to unneeded biopsies and other tests in many of these women, which can lead to a lot of worry and anxiety. The ACS believes the use of mammograms, MRI (in women at high risk), clinical breast exams and finding and reporting breast changes early offers women the best chance to reduce their risk of dying from breast cancer. This combined approach is clearly better than any one exam or test alone. Without question, a breast physical exam without a mammogram would miss the opportunity to detect many breast cancers that are too small for a woman or her doctor to feel but can be seen on mammograms. Although mammograms are a sensitive screening method, a small percentage of breast cancers do not show up on mammograms but can be felt by a woman or her doctors. For women at high risk of breast cancer, like those with BRCA gene mutations or a strong family history, both MRI and mammogram exams of the breast are recommended.

The research component of Breast Cancer Deadline 2020 includes the Artemis Project, an advocate led, innovative, mission driven approach of strategic summits, catalytic workshops, research action plans and collaborative efforts of various stakeholders. The Artemis Project focuses on two areas: Primary Prevention: How do we stop people from getting breast cancer? Prevention of Metastasis: How do we stop people from dying of breast cancer?NBCCs Artemis Project brings together a collaborative group of advocates and scientists to take a strategic, systematic yet broad approach to the development of a breast cancer preventive vaccine within five years. Current systems of research and resource allocation do not allow for the development of a preventive vaccine as rapidly as is possible given our current state of knowledge. Therefore, NBCC has created an innovative, mission-driven model that ensures appropriate focus on the end result. The Artemis Project is not simply facilitating work in progress, but actually creating the infrastructure for collaboration around development of the vaccine. Advocates are the conveners and leaders of this project, bringing together regulators, providers, scientists and others to develop and implement the strategic plan.Increased knowledge about immunology, genomics, the molecular basis of tumorgenesis and vaccine technology, including design, synthesis and delivery, have together created an unprecedented opportunity for development of a preventive vaccine for breast cancer. Potential targets have already been identified in the context of therapeutic vaccines and can now be evaluated in the context of prevention. Significant advances in genomics and informatics have created new opportunities to systematically identify further potential targets, and advances in methodology for studying the immune system will allow optimal assessments of immune response. Most current research on breast cancer vaccines has focused on development of therapeutic vaccines aimed at eliciting an antigen-specific immune response against tumor antigens. A preventive vaccine could target tumor antigens, or any infectious agent found to be associated with breast cancer. The ongoing search for an infectious etiology of breast cancer has had limited success. Most research has focused on human papillomavirus (HPV), EpsteinBarr virus (EBV), and the human equivalent of the mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV). There has yet to be a systematic approach taken to establish or rule out a viral etiology. The Artemis Project is expanding the research and targeting the aim of the science. Some success has been demonstrated with vaccination against tumor antigens to prevent breast cancer recurrence. For more information, visit breastcancerdeadline2020.org. American Cancer Society offers tips for having a mammogramHere are some useful suggestions from the American Cancer Society for making sure you receive a quality mammogram: If it is not posted visibly near the receptionists desk, ask to see the U.S. Food and Drug Administration certificate that is issued to all facilities that offer mammography. A facility may not provide mammography without certification. Use a facility that either specializes in mammography or does many mammograms a day. If you are satisfied that the facility is of high quality, continue to go there on a regular basis so that your mammograms can be compared from year to year. If you are going to a facility for the first time, bring a list of the places, dates of mammograms, biopsies or other breast treatments you have had. Make every attempt to get those mammograms to bring with you to the new facility (or have them sent there) so that they can be compared to the new ones. On the day of the exam, dont wear deodorant or antiperspirant. Some of these contain substances that can interfere with the reading of the mammogram by appearing on the x-ray film as white spots. You might find it easier to wear a skirt or pants, so that youll only need to remove your blouse for the exam. Schedule your mammogram for a time when your breasts are not tender or swollen to help reduce discomfort and to ensure a good picture. Try to avoid the week just before your period. Always describe any breast symptoms or problems that you are having to the technologist who is doing the mammogram. Be prepared to describe any medical history that could affect your breast cancer risk (surgery, hormone use or family or personal history of breast cancer, for example). If you do not hear from your doctor within 10 days, do not assume that your mammogram was normal. Call.Help with mammogram costsMedicare, Medicaid and most private health insurance plans cover mammogram costs or a percentage of them. Lowcost mammograms are available in most communities. Call the American Cancer Society at (800) 227-2345 for information about facilities in your area. Breast cancer screening is now more available to medically underserved women through the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. Although the program is administered by each state, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention match funds and support for each state program. Each states department of health has information on how to contact the nearest program. The program is only designed to provide screening. But if a cancer is discovered, it will cover further diagnostic testing and a surgical consultation. The Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Act gives states Medicaid funds to pay for treating breast and cervical cancers that are detected through the NBCCEDP. This helps women focus on fighting their disease, instead of worrying about how to pay for treatment. All states participate in this program.

Sponsored by the Sarasota Architectural Foundation, SarasotaMOD Weekend will allow people to experience the movement via land and sea through guided trolley, walking and boat tours. Many events will take place in acclaimed modernist structures. The whole point is to experience Sarasotas architectural jewels in their subtropical setting, says Janet Minker, SAF president. Were going to examine how a globally significant architectural movement grew up in what used to be a sleepy seaside town by the Gulf of Mexico. SarasotaMOD Weekend presenters include Lawrence Scarpa, pioneer of sustainable design and winner of the Cooper Hewitt 2014 National Design Award for architectural design; landscape architect Raymond Jungles (whose work can be seen at Naples Botanical Garden); and author, critic, and filmmaker Alastair Gordon. Mr. Jungles is the featured speaker during lunch Friday, Oct. 10, at The Francis. Tickets are $35. Mr. Scarpa will deliver the weekends keynote presentation, Experiential Transformations, at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10, at the Ringling College of Art + Design. A principal at Brooks+Scarpa Architects, with offices in California and North Carolina, he has garnered international acclaim for his creative use of conventional materials in unique and unexpected ways and is also considered a pioneer and leader in the field of sustainable design. A Miami native, he earned his bachelors and masters degrees in architecture at the University of Florida and studied with Mr. Rudolph in New York City. He has taught and lectured for more than two decades at institutions including Harvard University, UCLA, Southern California Institute of Architecture, Washington University in St. Louis, UF, the University of Michigan, University of Southern California and the University of California at Berkeley. Tickets to the keynote presentation and reception are $30. Fort Myers/Naples-based architect Joyce Owens will moderate True Veterans of the Sarasota School, a panel discussion with architects Carl Abbott (a former resident of Fort Myers), John Howey (author of The Sarasota School of Architecture) and Tim Seibert, from 10:3011:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, at The Francis. Tickets are $20. Ms. Owens will be part of a discussion during brunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 12, at the iconic Shore Diner. Dan Webre and Sean Khorsandi, co-directors of the Paul Rudolph Foundation, and architect Joe King are also on the panel. Tickets are $25. Mr. Rudolphs legacy is the thread connecting the weekends events. His designs will come alive through a variety of tours featuring some of his best-loved structures. In addition to the Sunday brunch, the weekends social events include a dinner at Ca dZan honoring Mr. Scarpa, a dinner under the stars at the Sarasota Yacht Club and a Gulf of Mexico sunset and buffet supper at Mr. Rudolphs famous Sanderling Beach Club on Siesta Key. The Sarasota School of Architecture is a living, evolving movement, says Mr. Abbott, a leading modernist architect. What began here has affected the architecture of the world.

That happened last week after Id written a story about the very costly business of high-stakes testing in schools, now the cause of so much unhappiness among many teachers, parents and families. The day the story appeared, letters began to pour in. Heres what people were saying.Thank you for the profound article, The Business of High-Stakes Testing. Ive read numerous articles from various sources on the same subject, and not one has been as concise and powerful as your article. It should be read by every American voter. Linda BrickerMost partisan hacks are compelled to use the Bush name to get your low-information, low-intellect liberal readers on fire to get out and vote Democrat in the next election, but do you really think they read this newspaper? Better to put cartoons on the front page to get their attention. Your derision of the Family Bush and all of the Bush cronies establishes who and what you are: an obsessed liberal hack who has tunnel vision in all things political. You criticize any attempt to raise standards and take power away from the radical, liberal teacher unions, who have controlled the education system in this country for over 60 years. We see what theyve accomplished in that time: The U.S. can no longer compete in the world. You purposely left out the most important part of this debate in not even mentioning these all powerful, all liberal unions who hand over hundreds of millions to the Democrat Party every year whether one believes in their incessant propaganda or not. The unions despise any kind of teacher or student testing because it might reveal how incompetent their ever-changing new & improved methods actually are. They own and run the entire Education system in this country and theyre running it into the ground. They oppose any group or conservative politician who feels it is time for a new direction that would actually raise standards. God forbid anyone try to bring back our education system to the high standards it once had in this country. I suggest you try your skills at writing an expose on how the progressive Mr. Obama, the first black president, has shut down all inner-city charter schools actually educating black and minority children in poverty (with excellent results) Janet K. Tomas, Warm Mineral SpringsAs a conservative, I probably fall most in line with (Janet K. Tomas, above), especially with calling out Democrats policies that also have done great damage to education. (But) this article was discussing testing. The truth of the matter is that Jeb Bush and his policies have also done great damage in Florida, especially in regards to the accountability movement. When I read your article, I did not see it as being liberally biased, at all. We are all a bit sensitive right now going into an election. The same way I am really ticked at how so-called conservatives are acting, its my job to protect my children. And if that means calling out someone from my own party, so be it: its the right thing to do. I would expect the same from the other side. This is not about sides, this is about our kids educations and what is right. Last night, I found out that the new testing company, AIR, that has overwhelmingly donated to Democrats, has a person (who) is CLOSELY tied to the Bushes. His name is William Piferrer. (Here, the writer quotes contextflorida. com): The career moves of a former Jeb Bush gubernatorial aide William Piferrer might be predictive. In addition to serving in Gov. Bushs executive office, Piferrer also held various positions with the Florida Department of Education before joining the testing conglomerate Pearson in 2007, the year before Pearson won Floridas $250 million FCAT vendor contract Now he is the senior program manager at American Institutes for Research. Just in time for our new AIR tests (coming to all Florida students beginning next fall) to be decided on? Convenient? This is not about an attack on Bush because hes a Republican, its because of his BAD policies. This is about politicians using their influence to get what they want and that is not necessarily in line with what is right. You did a fantastic job and you should be proud. It was more in-depth than any other article I have seen Suzette Lopez, MiamiGreat job on a complex topic. Im president of Parents Across Florida and co-founder of Parents Across America. Im also co-director of the Testing is not Teaching Facebook site (we have 13,000 Palm Beach County members). I reside in Palm Beach County and have been fighting Floridas broken accountability system and testing overkill since 2010. I plan on distributing your article widely not only on all our Facebook sites but also in meetings across the state. Thank you so much. Rita Solnet, Palm BeachYou are right on target: $500 billion per year is spent in this country for public education, of which $22 million in Florida. Its easy money for the businesses that dont care about childrens education only the money trail. Bullying is the worst epidemic among children in the country, and the state education departments spend nothing they have no training and absolutely no understanding of the serious problem that affects 22 million children each year. But they have money for senseless testing. Thanks again for the article.

With this privilege, however, comes responsibility. Thats why Im so pleased about the new partnership between the Conservancy and The Naples Zoo for panther research. Over the next three years, the Zoo has committed to spending $150,000 to help Conservancy biologists study panthers in Southwest Florida, including those in the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. A significant portion of this funding will be used to support the expansion of an ongoing study on the refuge using remote cameras originally purchased several years ago by the Zoo. Through this effort, Conservancy biologists will develop better techniques to more accurately estimate the size of the Florida panther population and that of its primary prey, white-tailed deer. These cameras, in addition to radio collars, greatly improve the scientists ability to study the panther population. Since 2005, Conservancy science staff members have provided technical expertise on the design and implementation of large-scale remote camera studies for panthers and their prey in Southwest Florida. Much of this work has been done in close collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commissions panther team. These additional funds will allow us to expand our collaboration with these agencies. What this means for you This jointly funded research will add to scientific knowledge through publication in scientific journals that can help inform sound wildlife management practices. This knowledge will also be presented in educational materials and other resources to the Zoos 350,000 annual visitors. As the Zoo gears up to open a panther exhibit in 2015, well be able to help provide the expertise and knowledge to give visitors a complete understanding of what makes the Florida panther such a precious and unique part of the Southwest Florida environment. Jack Mulvena, president and CEO of the Zoo, and I are fairly new leaders of our respective organizations. Jack and I hit it off the first time we met. I think we both felt there was an opportunity to take the long partnership between our neighboring institutions to a new level. With the support of our boards of directors and staff, we were able to create a true collaboration built around education, science and preservation of the Florida panther. Not only does this partnership give us a great opportunity to advance our research, it also gives us the opportunity to educate the community on ways to protect panther habitat. Its an education and research partnership between two organizations that share a common appreciation for wildlife education. Working together, the Conservancy and The Naples Zoo will build on each others strengths to enlighten the public on the unique treasure that is the Florida panther while working to protect its habitat and bring it back from the brink of extinction. I think this is just the first of many great partnerships to come. Rob Moher is president and CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. As a nonprofit organization, the Conservancy relies on the support of the community to continue its work to protect the regions water, land and wildlife. Both monetary and non-monetary donations are appreciated. For more information, call 262-2273 or visit conservancy.org.MOHER Global warming and global warringHours after 400,000 people joined in the largest climate march in history, the United States began bombing Syria, starting yet another war. The Pentagon claims that the targets were military installations of the Islamic State, in Syria and Iraq, as well a newly revealed terrorist outfit, the Khorasan Group. President Barack Obama is again leading the way to war, while simultaneously failing to address our rapidly worsening climate. The world is beset with twin crises, inextricably linked: global warming and global warring. Solutions to both exist, but wont be achieved by bombing. In todays wars, many more civilians are killed than soldiers; the seeds of future conflict are sown, economies are wrecked, civil societies torn asunder, refugees amassed, children scarred. These words were spoken on Dec. 10, 2009, by that years Nobel Peace Prize winner, President Barack Obama. Five years later, his pronouncement reads like a daily headline. The peace group Code Pink is calling on President Obama to return his Nobel medal. The world must come together to confront climate change, Obama said in that same Nobel acceptance speech. There is little scientific dispute that if we do nothing, we will face more drought, more famine, more mass displacement all of which will fuel more conflict for decades. Obama even made the key point that it is not merely scientists and environmental activists who call for swift and forceful action its military leaders in my own country and others who understand our common security hangs in the balance. Indeed, the Pentagon has long considered climate change to be a major threat to the national security of the United States. In its 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review, the Pentagon noted that the many impacts of climate change will aggravate stressors abroad such as poverty, environmental degradation, political instability, and social tensions conditions that can enable terrorist activity and other forms of violence. So it is fair to ask, why not address the threat of climate change when it is still possible? Asad Rehman, of the international environmental group Friends of the Earth, who was in New York for the climate march, told me, If we can find the trillions (of dollars) were finding for conflict whether theres been the invasion in Iraq or Afghanistan or now the conflict in Syria, then we can find the kind of money thats required for the transformation that will deliver clean, renewable energy. Rehman clearly opposes massive military spending. He spent years as an anti-war organizer, and sees the deep connection between warring and warming. Oil has been a curse on the people of the Middle East, he added. It has been a harbinger of conflict and violence and of destruction of ancient civilizations in communities and the lives of millions of people. Medea Benjamin, a co-founder of Code Pink, echoed the words of Rehman. She participated in the historic climate march, and joined thousands more the next day to Flood Wall Street, where 100 people were arrested. Before heading to the White House to protest the bombing of Syria, she told me: Oil is the basis of U.S. policy in the Middle East. Were it not for Iraqs oil, the U.S. would have never invaded. On Tuesday, more than 100 world leaders, along with industry representatives, participated in a nonbinding U.N. climate summit. It was convened by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the hopes that it would build momentum for the ongoing formal climate talks, which seek a binding commitment from the nations of the world to drastically cut greenhouse-gas emissions, and to limit the global rise in temperature to 2 degrees Celsius. Many believe a 2-degree rise is the upper limit of increase that the planet as we know it can sustain. While climate talks generate little success or media coverage, President Obamas attack on the Islamic State and other perceived terrorist threats dominated the U.N. General Assembly and a special session of the Security Council session that Obama chaired. Reflecting on the prospects for progress on the global movement to stop climate change, Asad Rehman said, Anybody who went on that demonstration could only walk away energized and more committed that the power lies in our hands and not in that building here in New York, in the U.N. Before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, U.S. Gen. Anthony Zinni predicted success only with an invading force of 400,000. Donald Rumsfeld went in with less than half, famously quipping, You go to war with the army you have not the army you might want. Well, 400,000 people turned out for the climate march last Sunday ... an army of hope for a sustainable future. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

And despite all the sayings about three days and the smell of fish, etc., you have to thank them for one thing: They reintroduce us to this great town. We take them to the beach, to the zoo, to the theater, to the ballpark, to the golf course and sometimes to the dog track. The best of them treat us to dinner at restaurants we wouldnt dare enter outside of summer when the specials run rampant. Houseguests remind us just where we are living and why we are here. Its not the grocery store or the gas station or the office or any of the locales that occupy our minds during a typical day. Look around. The incredibly blue, blue sky, the freshness of the air, the boulevards lined with flowers, palm trees and shrubs, all of them perfectly manicured, wending through neighborhoods of tasteful homes and picturesque water scenes. When I first moved here (from Connecticut in 1990), I was overwhelmed with Naples. I actually found it hard to work in the midst of such splendor and in such perfect weather. I drifted through those first few months as though I were on vacation until the bills finally caught up with me and I had to get down to business. Since then, Ive been the most responsible, hard-working professional I know, able to drive down Pelican Bay Boulevard and not even glimpse at the sparkling lake flowing from the lush golf course. Able to show a gorgeous home while listening so intently to the buyer that I dont even hear the surf in the background. Even able to be in an office on the top floor of a building on U.S. 41 and not once glance with longing at the vast Gulf of Mexico. I tell myself that its enough to just know its out there. But its not enough. Not anymore. Today marks the start of a new exercise program. Im calling it my appreciation workout and it goes like this: No fewer than three times a week, I will arise early, just before dawn, and walk for 45 minutes. I might walk quickly, or I might just stroll. I might walk my neighborhood or Fifth Avenue or Waterside Shops or the beach. And when I do walk the beach, I will breathe in the salt air and let the breeze ruffle my otherwise perfect coif. Most of all, I will consciously feel the sugary sand beneath my feet and between my toes. I will arrive at my office refreshed and rejuvenated and, while Ill work as diligently as ever, I will stop frequently throughout my day, if only for a few seconds, to remind myself where I live. It might be to marvel at the fact that my hometown just got buried in 12 inches of snow, while here I am in a summery dress without even a sweater draped across my shoulders. Or it might be to listen to the serenade of a mockingbird or the staccato attack of a woodpecker or the lovely rustle of palm fronds. Or just to relish the texture and succulence of a Florida tomato, something not available, much less describable, to the larger world. At night, when the air turns cool, I will make it my routine to watch the sun set and to spot the first star just as I did as a little girl (that is, when the sky was clear enough). And I will thank God for allowing me to live in this heaven on earth. Each of these will take only seconds out of my day, but they will enrich my life for hours at a time and sustain me through whatever the day may bring. Im confident they will do the same for you. After all, to paraphrase an old Irish saying: If youre lucky enough to live in Naples, youre lucky enough. When Realtor Cheryl Turner is not marveling at the beauty of Naples, she can be found helping others find their home here. cherylTURNERCheryl@cherylturner.com Celebrating Our 26th Year in Naples!

Having heard of the inventors work, Pepeijn asked if they could please have Ratjetoe stuffed and turned into a radio-controlled drone. Mr. Jansen and Mr. Beltman, who had previously created an ostrichcopter and are now working on a turbo shark, created Pepeijns rat-copter, but remain best noted for their epic taxidermied cat, Orvillecopter, created in 2012 (which readers can view at nydn.us/1r0WmmA). Updates In August, a state appeals court overruled a lower court and decided that Thomas and Nancy Beatie could divorce, after all. The first judge had determined that their out-of-state marriage was not valid in Arizona because they were both women, but Mr. Thomas has had extensive surgery and hormone therapy and become a man although he is also the spouse who bore the couples three children, since he made it a point to retain his reproductive organs. In August, for the 12th straight year, a group of Japanese adult-film actresses has volunteered their breasts to raise money for an AIDS-prevention charity event shown on an X-rated cable TV channel from Tokyo. The 12-hour-long squeeze-athon (Boob Aid) sold individual fondles to men for donations of at least (the equivalent of) $9, with donors required first to spray on disinfectant. In all, 4,100 pairs of hands roamed the nine actresses. Regulatory filings revealed in August that AOL still has 2.3 million dial-up subscribers (down from 21 million 15 years ago) paying, on average, about $20 monthly. Industry analysts, far from rolling on the floor laughing at the companys continued success with 20th-century technology, estimate that AOLs dial-up business constitutes a hefty portion of its quarterly operating profit of about $122 million. Commentators have had fun with the new system of medical diagnostic codes (denominated in from four to 10 digits each) scheduled to take effect in October 2015, and the Healthcare Dive blog had its laughs in a July post. The codes for problems in relationship with in-laws and bizarre personal appearance are strange enough, but the most absurd codes are subsequent encounters (that is, at least the second time the same thing happened to a patient) for events like walking into a lamppost, or getting sucked into a jet engine, or receiving burns from on-fire water skis, or having contact with a cow beyond being bitten or kicked (since those contacts have separate codes). Also notable was S10.87XA, Other superficial bite of other specified part of neck, initial encounter, which seems to describe a hickey. Recurring themes More Drivers Who Ran Over Themselves: In June, Robert Pullar, 30, Minot, N.D., subsequently charged with DUI, fell out of his car and was run over by it. In July, Joseph Karl, 48, jumped out of his truck to confront another driver in a road rage incident in Gainesville, Fla., but as he pounded on that drivers window, his own truck (negligently left in gear) crept up and ran him over. Mr. Pullar and Mr. Karl were not seriously injured, but in July, a 54-year-old St. Petersburg, Fla., man was hurt badly when, attempting to climb onto the street sweeper that he operates for the city, he fell off, and the machine ran over his upper body. For patients who are musicians, deep brain stimulation (open-brain) surgery can provide entertainment for operating-room doctors as they correct neurological conditions such as hand tremors. In September, the concert violinist Naomi Elishuv, who has performed with the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, played for surgeons at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center so they could locate the exact spot in the brain for inserting the pacemaker to control the hand-trembling that had wrecked her career. (In fact, last weeks winner of the annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass, Eddie Adcock, 76, had finger-picked some tunes in the operating room in 2007 for his own deep brain surgery.)Buddhists continue to believe in the wholesale mercy release of living creatures, with smaller and less consequential animals making even stronger statements of reverence, according to a July New York Times dispatch from Yushu, China, describing the freeing of river shrimp the size of a fingernail clipping. These specks of life, an advocate told the Times, could very well be the reincarnated souls of relatives who perished in the 2010 earthquake that demolished the local area. We workers, said another, have the same feelings as the fish, alluding to his own occupation of digging in the mud. Surgeons at the University of Arizona Medical Center removed a 47-pound tumor from a womans stomach in April not even close to being the largest ever mentioned in News of the Weird, but likely the only such large tumor appearing in a post-operative photograph being cradled in the arms of a member of the surgical team. (The patient, without insurance, had been putting off the surgery for months, which allowed the tumor to grow and to complicate the surgery but credits Obamacare with finally allowing her to afford the procedure.) Previous reports of obsessively vengeful ex-lovers seem concentrated in Japan, where some heartbroken girlfriends have relentlessly harassed their exes with thousands of phone calls for months after the breakup. However, in a September report from Rhone, France, a 33-year-old man was sentenced to prison for 10 months for harassing his ex-girlfriend with a total of 21,807 phone calls and texts over the 10 months following the split (an average of 73 a day). The man insisted that he only wanted the woman to thank him for the carpentry work he had done on her apartment. Size Matters (Sometimes): Its not the first time that a suspect has had the idea, but usually, judges are skeptical. This time, a court in Leer, Germany, ordered a medical examination of the manhood of Herbert O., 54, to help decide a criminal charge of exhibitionism. The mans wife testified that Herberts organ is too short to hang out of (his) trousers, as claimed by the victim of the flashing. The judge asked a local health official to make an exact measurement.

Coupon Expires 10/31/2014Naples Bonita Springs Charity Classic showcases accomplishments of Immokalee students SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFor more than 20 years, the children of Immokalee have been the heart and soul of The Immokalee Foundation. Since its inception, the nonprofit organization has been dedicated to making a significant difference in the lives of these kids by providing them with the education, opportunity and tools necessary to build a brighter future. In November, local philanthropists will have the chance to make their own impact in the life of a child at the foundations 2014 Charity Classic Celebration dinner and auction. Slated for Friday, Nov. 14, at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort, the evening will help make life-enhancing dreams come true for the youth of Immokalee. In addition to fine dining and entertainment, the evening also provides an occasion to showcase the students of TIF. This years theme, In a Field of Dreams: Hope Grows, will highlight their successes and what they have been able to accomplish through TIF and its education programs. Attendees will have the opportunity to support the future of TIF students during Fund A Dream, a live bidding experience enabling donors to contribute to Immokalees children in a specific and tangible way. Fund A Dream auction items include opportunities to fund college and vocational scholarships, reading support and intervention programs, college tuition and extra-curricular experiences. Donors can also provide support to build leadership and life skills as well as fund studying abroad and access to art, technology and youth leadership programs. This will be the fourth Charity Classic for TIF supporters Joyce Hagen Fites and Don Fites. We think of it as a whole different category of fundraiser, says Mr. Fites. Certainly its beautifully done and lots of fun, but it also puts these wonderful students front and center, allowing participants to meet them, talk about their prospects and spend an evening of celebration with patrons and students alike. Its not an auction for things or trips, of which we have more than we need. Its a fundraiser where the money goes directly to the programs that change lives. The results, he adds, are tangible. The stories you hear during the evening focus on the special challenges of growing up in Immokalee, and there are many struggles to be dealt with, but the results are really spectacular. Im one to look at the numbers, and every metric shows that TIF is making a demonstrable improvement in the lives and prospects of these young people. Mrs. Fites, a foundation board member, has taken an active role in this years event and promises a meaningful night. TIF has been hard at work for 10 years now, and we will introduce alumni of our programs who are at work in communities across the country, contributing to society and grateful for the seed that was planted years ago that gave them that opportunity, she says. We will hear their stories, and we will want to create many more. She adds patrons can also look forward to some fun surprises during the course of the evening. The Fites have been involved with TIF for years. A former CEO of Caterpillar, Mr. Fites was approached by a group of leaders about five years ago to join them in creating educational opportunities for the children of Immokalee. He was instrumental in the development of TIFs heavy equipment mechanics program at iTech in Immokalee. Mrs. Fites says she was impressed by how the community of givers donated not just money, but time in mentoring the students, helping them through training and college applications and becoming really attached to their success stories. I was honored to be asked to join the board last year, and what an inspiring group of people, she says. And the kids bring such enthusiasm and appreciation to these opportunities that they also inspire me. Golfers can be a part of the Charity Classic action by teeing up with some of the biggest names in golf for a pro-am tournament Monday, Nov. 17, at The Old Collier Golf Club. Sponsors of the 2014 Charity Classic Celebration and Pro-Am are: Arthrex, Fifth Third Bank, Jaguar Naples, Porsche of Naples, Kelly Tractor, Naples Illustrated, GE Foundation and Kevin Johnson with Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management. Tickets for the dinner and auction evening are $550. Registration for the golf tournament begins at $5,000 and includes tickets to the dinner and auction.

A40 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGNew alcoholism drug to undergo clinical trial SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism will conduct a clinical trial of gabapentin enacarbil as a potential treatment for alcohol use disorder. NIAAA estimates that the sixmonth trial will begin in the first half of 2015 and will enroll approximately 350 participants. The study will assess the safety and efficacy of gabapentin enacarbil in people who have been diagnosed with alcohol use disorder. NIAAA is working in partnership with the biopharmaceutical company XenoPort, of Santa Clara, Calif., which will supply the study drug.Current medications for alcohol dependence are effective for some, but not all, patients. New medications are needed to provide effective therapy to a broader spectrum of alcohol dependent individuals, says George Koob, director of the NIAAA, a part of the National Institutes of Health. Prior clinical studies of gabapentin, the active metabolite of the molecule called gabapentin enacarbil, have shown positive results in patients with alcohol use disorder, he adds.In a recent study supported by NIAAA, researchers at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif., found that alcohol-dependent patients using gabapentin were more likely than those taking a placebo to stop drinking or refrain from heavy drinking. Gabapentin is already widely prescribed to treat pain conditions and epilepsy. Scientists at XenoPort designed gabapentin enacarbil extended-release tablets to address certain limitations of drug levels in the body, which may make it a more attractive treatment option for people with alcohol use disorder. The planned study will be a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, meaning that participants will receive either the study drug or placebo. Neither participants nor researchers will know who received the study drug until after the trial is completed. Alcohol use disorders affect about 17 million people in the United States and have an estimated societal cost of $223.5 billion each year, primarily from lost productivity, but also from health care and property damage costs. Currently, three medications are approved by the FDA for treating alcohol dependence: disulfram, an older drug that blocks the metabolism of alcohol and causes nausea; acamprosate, which helps support abstinence and can ease symptoms of withdrawal; and naltrexone, which can help people reduce heavy drinking. For more information, go to niaaa.nih. gov. Putting quality and transparency on the front burnerClinical quality is the hallmark of an excellent health care institution and what we have emphasized over the past decade at NCH Healthcare System. We have also supported transparency, in encouraging the public to know where we rank in terms of quality. Indeed, quality and transparency are two sides of the same coin for our industry and for NCH. Thats why it was so revealing and disturbing when two Florida Hospital Association committees met recently in Orlando to push both agendas forward for the 300 FHA members. Our states numbers, quite frankly, are not good. Florida State Health Insurance ranks the Sunshine State No. 33 in the nation. The Commonwealth Fund rates Florida No. 41 for health care quality overall and No. 35 in terms of affordability and access to medical care. These measures put our state in the third or fourth quartile, with the first quartile being best. These are sad and sobering metrics for a state thats about to become the third most populous in the nation, right behind California and Texas. Obviously, we have to do better. Florida is challenged by its diversity and size. According to the FHA, 21 percent of our population lacks health insurance (the national average is less at 16 percent). Florida has about 26 family doctors for every 100,000 people in its population (compared to a national average of 32 doctors). And Florida has the third highest rate of hospitalization in the nation. In response, some Florida health care systems, penalized for excessive readmissions and infections, are planning monumental building projects. At NCH, we are proud to say, the news is much better, as we will report at an upcoming FHA-sponsored Hospital Engagement Network event. Among our accomplishments: allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org SEE WEISS, A41 In Case Youre Curious means info about sex can be a text awayPlanned Parenthood of Collier County has introduced a text-messaging service to provide information about sex, relationships, birth control, sexually transmitted infections and other concerns. In Case Youre Curious is a free educational tool that offers quick, confidential answers to personal questions. Its simple to use: Text PPCC to 57890; once a confirmation text is received, questions can be texted anytime, with responses promised within 24 hours. Being able to provide solid information to teens and others through a channel thats comfortable to them has the potential to prevent teen pregnancies and encourage healthy choices, says Stephanie Marshall, president and CEO of the Collier County affiliate. We know teenagers are curious about their bodies and share lots of myths and half-truths among themselves. Trained health educators respond to ICYC texts with medically accurate information that is easy to understand. Planned Parenthood has posted sample ICYC questions and answers on Instagram at instagram.com/incaseyourecurious. The service is free, but standard message and data rates may apply. ICYC cannot provide diagnoses or medical advice, and text messages are never a substitute for seeing a doctor. Planned Parenthood may be obliged to report information about abuse, rape, incest or neglect to appropriate authorities. An affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Planned Parenthood of Collier County provides preventive health care, including well-women exams, breast and cervical cancer screenings, and HIV and STI testing and treatment at its health centers in Naples and 1425 Creech Road and in Immokalee at 419 N.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 A41Support group for caregivers who feel the weight of the worldThe Naples-based Mental Health Association of Southwest Florida has a new support group for caregivers called Atlas. Although our caregivers do not hold the entire world like Atlas was forced to, they have to cope with a lot of pressure. We want to give a hand, says Eva Smidova, a marriage and family counselor who leads the group that brings together caregivers to share their skills and experiences, learn how to relax and incorporate simple self-care techniques into daily routines. Atlas welcomes everyone whose shoulders are used to support others, to carry, to help, to hold up, to be at hand, to guard and give, Ms. Smidova says. Life is neither black nor white, she adds. It can happen out of the blue that one day you are the one who is held, and the other day you turn into the holder. You can become Atlas at any age. The Atlas support group is based on family values and aspires to be empowering, resourceful, self-reflective, confidential, sensitive and respectful to attendees culture, religion, gender and race. The group meets from 4:30-6 p.m. every Monday in the offices of the Mental Health Association of Southwest Florida, 2335 Tamiami Trail N. Attendance is free. For registration or more information, call 261-5405 or email email@example.com. Planned Parenthood increases hours at clinic in ImmokaleePlanned Parenthood of Collier County has doubled the hours of its Immokalee clinic, making it available two full days each week to women, men and teens seeking information and services related to sexual and reproductive health. The clinic at 419 N. First St. is now open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Appointments are required for most services, but walkins are accepted until 4 p.m. both days for birth control refills, pregnancy testing and emergency contraception. Staff members speak both English and Spanish. Insurance is accepted, and patients also can pay on a sliding-fee scale. Call 262-0301. NCH hasnt had a central line associated blood stream infection in progressive care for three years, nine months; in ICU for four years, seven months; in surgical ICU for three years, 10 months; and in cardiovascular recovery for four years, nine months. Sepsis mortality has dropped at NCH from approximately 33 percent to 8 percent by using predictive analytics, created by Cerner, that enable us to identify patients about to deteriorate so we can administer appropriate antibiotics and other treatments, thus avoiding a crash. We converted an evidencebased basal bolus insulin program to a computer provider order process to improve overall blood sugar control for our patients and reduce the occurrence of hypoglycemic adverse drug events. Measured hypoglycemia rates resulted in a 48 percent reduction in the year-toyear overall hypoglycemia rate. As you can see, there is much positive news on the NCH clinical quality front, and we are striving toward price transparency as an institution as well. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickSwee Pea is an 18-year-old border collie/Australian shepherd cross who holds nine Guinness world records for stunts such as walking up and down a flight of stairs backward while balancing a glass of water on her nose. As you can imagine, a dog that old even one who undergoes stretching and other exercises daily to keep her fit still has aches and pains in her hips, back and shoulders. Her veterinarian, Laurie McCauley, medical director at TOPS Veterinary Rehab in Grayslake, Ill., uses low-level laser therapy to help Swee Pea stay comfortable.Sometimes known as cold laser or class IV laser, the therapy works by altering or stimulating cellular function. The light energy penetrates to a certain depth depending on the wavelength and energy applied and affects cells and blood vessels in certain ways, such as by blocking a nerves ability to send a pain signal to the brain, increasing blood flow or decreasing swelling. It may also significantly speed wound healing. That was the experience for Graham, a greyhound, whose injured tail was amputated. Cold laser helped the area to heal quickly, says his owner, Marcia Herman of Anderson, S.C. Other pet owners have found it to be helpful for pain relief. In Queen Creek, Ariz., Aussie/chow mix Cheiss receives laser treatments for pain from hip dysplasia. Owner Stacy Mantle says it has allowed her to decrease the amount of pain medication he requires. Jake, a cavalier King Charles spaniel, received cold laser treatment for an ACL injury. His owner, Cathy Remoll Torres of San Diego, says the treatment helped him to avoid surgery. In my own practice, Ive used the class IV laser a number of ways. It can help to relieve pain, redness and swelling at surgical incision sites; reduce inflammation related to hot spots, inflamed ears and lick granulomas; and soothe arthritic joints. Dogs who have spay surgery with laser treatment have little redness, drastically reduced swelling and no discomfort. A severely arthritic dog treated with a laser was able to break the shackles of pain and stiffness and start moving normally again. Thats so satisfying for me and for the pet owner. Veterinarians and pet owners like laser treatment for a number of reasons: Its noninvasive. When used correctly, it doesnt have any side effects. It can be used weekly or monthly for pets with chronic pain, giving them better quality of life. In cases of severe pain caused by surgery or trauma, laser treatment can be used twice a day for a few days and then daily to diminish pain and speed healing.Cold laser has limitations. It can be harmful for pets with cancer, and it shouldnt be directed at the retina of the eye or over tattoos, or areas of active bleeding. Cost varies depending on the type of machine used and whether a veterinarian or technician is administering the treatment.In human medicine, science hasnt yet reached consensus on the effectiveness of laser therapy or the best ways to use it. Health insurance plans for people often dont cover it, considering it an experimental therapy. Our pets are luckier because some pet health insurance plans do cover it. What is really exciting is the potential of laser therapy to help pets be less fearful during veterinary visits by using laser to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system. Ive witnessed it working this way in dogs, cats and horses. In the end, helping fearful patients become fearless in the hospital is where veterinary medicine might end up using these the most. Both pets and people wear goggles to protect their eyes during laser treatments, which can be used to treat conditions as v aried as anal sac infections or periodontal disease.

Not only that, classmates are happily reuniting long after graduation. Several folks I know attended their 40th high school reunions in the past few weeks, and oddly enough, they claim to have enjoyed them. I say oddly, because Im just not a highschool reunion sort of diva. I blame my horrible 10-year reunion on that, I really do. Heres a message to all you 27-year olds out there: No matter how much you loved your high-school experience, 10 years is way too soon to reunite. Dont bother. Save your money and go skiing or something instead. Because, simply put, youre all pretty much the same. You havent changed enough yet. My 10-year reunion took place in the early 1990s in the ballroom of a hotel on U.S. 41. There was black pleather furniture and red wallpaper. The reunion committee put some effort to brightening it up with the signature purple and gold colors from our school, but the streamers and balloons gave it more of a sad, faded Mardi Gras feel. Music from our adolescence, which was pretty much the worst music in the history of music Kiss, Survivor, Asia boomed from a bad speaker system. Having been a nerdy, shy kid in school, I decided to really knock em dead at 27 by pouring myself into a gold, crushedvelvet spandex mini dress, accessorized with shiny Hooters-esque panty hose and long black gloves. I looked more like I was applying for the front-desk job at a brothel than attending my high-school reunion. Since it had only been 10 years, all the same cliques were still painfully intact. The most popular kids were at the head table, holding court; the brainy kids all huddled together; the shy nerds gathered in the back and tried not to be noticed (except moi, obviously). Ugh. It was just like high school, only at the Ramada Inn. After that trauma, I skipped the 20th reunion. But I acquiesced when a classmate asked me to go with him to our 25th. Time had settled in more. People had married, had kids, gained some weight, lost some hair it was much more relaxed. Plus, the festivities were held at a waterfront tiki bar where the cocktails flowed and nerds and cheerleaders reached across the aisle to actually get to know one another. But now that we have Facebook constantly filling us in on every detail of our old schoolmates lives, I cant see myself ever attending another reunion. I know who just got married for the third time because Ive seen her beach wedding photos. I know who just had twin granddaughters because he posted a video of the newborns. A I know which couple travelled to England this summer because they checked-in at the Tower of London (and every other place they stopped at for three long weeks on my newsfeed). I even know whos gluten-free and who hates liberals. I know so much that a reunion seems pointless. And yet, as I said above, my friends attending their 40-year reunions are reporting good times. So, I popped into cocktail hour for a Class of 4 reunion at a lovely resort this past weekend. The first thing I noticed was that they had way better music (Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Chicago) and they seemed genuinely happy to see one another. As I overheard conversations, it was clear that this wasnt a crowd that was super-active on social media. Some had Facebook pages, or their spouses did, but they must not have been checking them 14 times a day because news of vacations, grandchildren and marriages seemed like, well, news. It was nice to see. Maybe theres hope for reunions after all. Maybe the magic number is 40. And maybe the secret ingredient is avoiding Facebook. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week The Diva, fourth from right, and friends at their 25th high-school reunion. g p o f I stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

Get ready for a spike in the states populationThe demographics of a state and county can make a big difference in local business success and local real estate investing. The demographics of Florida are terrific, and so the future of Florida appears to be incredibly bright. Some Florida counties will capture an even greater population benefit and they will grow faster than Floridas overall growth rate. Florida will soon (in 2014, if not already) surpass New York as the third most populated state; at a projected 19.7 million people, Florida will then trail only behind California (38 million) and Texas (26 million). Floridas overall population is projected to grow 22 percent by 2030. As of the 2013 census, which estimated growth through 2030, the fastest growing demographic groups in south Floridas counties will be the Hispanic population and the over 65 age group. The Hispanic population will increase by 47 percent, from 4.5 million to 6.6 million by 2030 and account for 28 percent of Floridas population. (47 percent is twice the rate of Floridas overall growth of 22 percent). The over 65 population will increase 60 percent from 3.5 million to 5.6 million and account for 24 percent of Floridas population.Some Florida counties will capture an even greater demographic growth benefit, as they will be growing at rates faster than Floridas overall growth rate. These counties are largely growing faster by capturing more Hispanics and more over 65. How does Florida or any state grow its population? There are only two ways. First, more people are born in that location than the number who die. Second, the population of a state (or a county) also grows when more people move into that location than those who move out, i.e., net migration which includes domestic moves from one state to another state and international people moving into the state. Florida benefits from the Hispanic segment having a much higher birth rate than non-Hispanic whites or other demographic groups. While the fertility rate for Hispanics in Florida has dropped from 2.82 in 2007, the current Hispanic birth rate at 2.12 remains significantly above the overall U.S. fertility rate. (To be precise, a 2.12 birth rate means that for every 1,000 Hispanics in the measured area, there are births of 2.12 babies each year.) Hispanics will also enter Florida from a foreign country and from another state. Here are some Hispanic population projections by county. Palm Beach County is expected to grow from 268,000 Hispanics to 395,000 (increasing 47 percent by 2030). Thats in line with Floridas overall Hispanic projected growth rate but much faster than Floridas overall growth. However, the west coast of Florida will grow faster: Collier Countys Hispanic base will grow from 90,000 to 138,000 (an increase of 52 percent, which is more than twice the overall increase in population for Florida). Meanwhile, Lee Countys Hispanic population will grow from 126,000 to 232,00! That is an astounding growth of 84 percent in Hispanics in Lee County by 2030. Florida also benefits from wellentrenched international and domestic migration patterns. Florida has a uniquely positive demographic position in that no state had more net migrants than Florida in April 1, 2010 through July 1, 2013: some 618,000 people moved into Florida comprised of: 318,000 international relocations and 310,000 U.S. citizens moving from a state into Florida While Asia leads as the overall source of international migration into the U.S., Floridas sources are Mexico, Central America and South America. These are the primary international sources a trend thats expected to continue. Domestic net migration into Florida tells a sad tale about other states. The census numbers for April 1, 2010 to July 2013 show that there was an exodus from northern to southern states. The Midwest lost 545,000 and the North lost 624,000 people while Southern states gained 1,129,000. The southerly migration count will increase when we enter the peak years for Baby Boomer retirement, as they will surely seek sunshine. New York was the biggest domestic migration loser with 325,000 people leaving. The second biggest loser was Illinois with 224,000 leaving. Then came California with 153,000 leaving. All bad news for those states except some (like New York and California) had heavy international migration to offset domestic losses. The University of Floridas Bureau of Economic Developments most recent population projection for 2013 through 2030 shows an in increase in the over 65 population, and these numbers do not count the seasonal residents over 65. Florida overall will increase the over 65 group from 3.5 million to 5.6 million (or from 18 percent of the population to 24 percent.) Collier Countys over 65 moves from 27 percent of the countys population to 32 percent; Lee County from 24 percent to 29 percent; West Palm Beach from 22 percent to 27 percent Any way that you slice and dice the numbers, the picture is very clear. And businesses, municipal planners, investors, etc. All should understand and get prepared for Floridas future population and the specifics of their countys future demographics.

But in either case, they do the same thing: They use a range of advertising tools to sell a host of products or services, just as any other business might billboards and television or radio ads and sophisticated websites and social media, not to mention print ads, all seeking to draw in souls who will share in the joy of salvation by giving. The sky and the imagination of the marketers is the limit, it seems. For example, the Riverside Church in Fort Myers, following the lead of some other groups in the country, displays a sizeable banner on Daniels Parkway where roughly 50,000 drivers a day are likely to see it. The church offers the following opportunity: B90X the chance to get spiritually ripped by reading the Bible in 90 days. Its a takeoff on the nationally popular workout program called P90X, a revolutionary system of 12 sweatinducing, muscle-pumping exercises designed to transform your body from regular to ripped, in 90 days. Jesus wasnt interested in religion, says Senior Pastor Bob Reed, introducing his church and welcoming all comers. Im not interested in religion. Instead, the church exists to make disciples who love and live like Jesus. And who can actually claim to have read the Bible in its entirety. Apparently, many have not. At Riverside this autumn and winter, some parishioners will finish reading the Bible and then make a February journey with the pastor and his wife to the Holy Land. There will be Englishspeaking Israeli guides, three meals a day, and pleasant hotel accommodations all for a cost of about $4,500, according to the travel itinerary. Its a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Then, presumably, they will come back and spread the Word which is, after all, part of the point for many churches. People must see what we do, hear what we say, and see how we react, in order to be convinced of true Christianity, says Pastor Mark Coffey, explaining what its like to become a member of the Community Life Center in Port Charlotte. It is not reasonable to think that we can win our community to Jesus from behind the pulpit. It goes beyond the pastor and pews into the world where we live. This community must see us reaching out in practical ways in every avenue possible before they will take even a second glance towards Christianity. Not all religious groups market aggressively, however. Some rely on a form of anti-marketing marketing that may work from this philosophy: Each man and each woman is his or her own marketer when it comes to the business of religion. At the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples, for example, the congregation relies on word of mouth, on superb music from a worldclass pianist or other pros and sophisticated amateurs, on guest speakers from many walks of life, and on this attitude, says Barbara Glasgow, a member of the congregation and chair of the Green Sanctuary Program: One of our core beliefs at UU is the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Thats marketing enough for many, and its a low-key style also practiced by Rabbi Bruce Diamond, of the Community Free Synagogue. Jews in general have not proselytized in almost 2,000 years, he explains. In fact, we welcome participants and treat them as they wish to be treated we let them self-identify and belong through their participation without gate keeping or other litmus tests or hurdles. Including the collection. We do not really do any fundraising, ask for annual pledges or charge membership dues, although that is a widespread American synagogue practice. Unlike the other local congregations, we certainly do not sell tickets for the High Holidays. We also dont charge for our weekly Sabbath eve meals or annual catered Passover seder suppers. We use email, our website and Facebook page, and the monthly local Jewish newspaper to announce our events. It means Rabbi Diamond is not driving big cars or living lavishly as a result of synagogue success. I receive a modest monthly parsonage allowance and support myself through college teaching and other income from many years of saving. Rabbis are instructed not to burden (your) community and are forbidden to enrich themselves through their Torah their religious learning. The ancient motto is Torah and a vocation. I am not really an employee of my congregation. I am their spiritual leader. Our mission is the ancient Jewish standard: Prayer, study and benevolent actions. That seems to work for about 350 families in Lee and Collier counties, who are generous without being asked to be. When new people walk through our doors, Rabbi Diamond says, we dont regard them as new sources of revenue, and we dont regard our people as a source of income. Sometimes the traditional reaching out and recruiting comes easy a church might just luck into an advertising opportunity that beats all. Take the case of the Powell family at the McGregor Baptist Church in Fort Myers, one of the regions most sizeable congregations with one of the most successful marketing approaches. Senior Pastor Richard Powell, who has led the congregation since 1999, is father of native-son Alan Powell, a brand-spanking-new movie star and a Fort Myers High School graduate. The young Mr. Powell, 29, is not only front man for an increasingly visible Christian singing group, Anthem Lights, based in Nashville, but hes opening as the lead in a new movie, The Song. In the film, according to its notes, he plays a singer and songwriter whose big hit reaps a harvest of fame and wealth that nearly runs him off the road of righteousness and ruins his marriage. The dramatic irony, which probably helps with the marketing, is that his character has written the hit song to celebrate his love for his wife. McGregor Baptist is a classic newwave congregation when it comes to marketing, and the buzz about the film, which was aggressively promoted in New York before opening last week in the region, is now part of the churchs cachet. The website offers a range of activities all week, every week, for people dealing with divorce or recovery, or for singles 40 to 55. It also offers a womens ministry, a childrens ministry, a marriage-mentoring ministry, a sports ministry complete with golf tournaments, and an opportunity for Seminole fans or perhaps Seminsoul fans to go hear former FSU football coaching great Bobby Bowden talk about Educating for Eternity, for either $55 or $115. The higher price includes a dinner at Carrabbas Italian Grill (thats on October 20). McGregor Baptist also offers this opportunity, in addition to three Sunday worship services that tend to fill the big hall with hundreds of the faithful: Watch Dr. Powell on Sunday at 7 a.m. on FOX 4 and WRYX TV and on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. on COMCAST Channel 10, dish Network channel 49, and over the air on Channel 49. And why does Dr. Powell push himself so hard? To challenge all people to radically follow Jesus, he says which is the churchs motto. The marketing may be modern, but the preaching offers a taste of that oldtime religion, a form of marketing in itself, perhaps. Last Sunday morning, for example, Executive Pastor Russell Howard recalled from the pulpit how the Apostle Paul, on his way to Rome and unlikely to see many of his fellow acolytes again, paused to tell them, I am innocent of everyones blood. In other words, he explained, the faithful must try to save those who have not accepted Jesus so they too may be innocent of their blood if those to whom they minister are forewarned, but make the wrong choice. I know how you dont go to hell, the pastor thundered. Compared to that, a cure for cancer is nothing. We dont want the blood of Lee County on the hands of our church. Do we? If you dont know Jesus this morning, Come to Jesus. Why would you die and go to hell? Why? Why? As marketing went, it worked. Buying in, the crowd appeared to be spellbound.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Can You Afford to Wait?If youre putting off saving and investing for retirement, you may really regret it in the future. Heres why: Imagine that you begin saving at age 45 and invest $5,000 per year for 20 years, earning the markets historical average return of about 10 percent per year, with 3 percent annual inflation. Youll end up with $286,375 before inflation and $204,977 after inflation. If you dont begin saving and investing until age 55, youll have to sock away $18,000 a year or delay your retirement until age 75 just to end up with the same amount of money! (And by the way, retiring with just $200,000 wont be enough for many people.) Heres the power of just one year: In the example above, st arting at age 45 gets you $204,977 after inflation. But if you started one year earlier and gave your money just one more year to grow, youd end up with $224,326 after inflation $19,349 more! Meanwhile, if you invest $5,000 annually beginning at age 25, in 40 years youll end up with nearly $1 million after inflation. An investor who starts at age 45 will have to sock away more than $24,000 per year for that. If youre not young anymore and youre kicking yourself right now, stop it. After all, you may be able to save more than $5,000 per year. One rule of thumb is to save and invest 10 percent of your income, but higher percentages are better for many. Even if you start investing at age 50, you still have time to accumulate wealth. If you can invest $10,000 per year for 20 years, earning 10 percent, youll end up with more than $400,000 after inflation. Not too shabby, eh? On the other hand, remember that a 10 percent return isnt guaranteed you might average more, or less which is all the more reason to sock away money aggressively. Calculators at fool. com/calcs/calculators.htm and elsewhere can help you determine how much youll need to accumulate to retire securely. Out of a HelicopterI bought into one of Canadas biggest frauds. I heard on the radio that there were accusations of large-scale fraud and a cover-up at Bre-X, and that a key individual had mysteriously fallen out of a helicopter, apparently committing suicide. The whole thing sounded too ridiculous to be true. I immediately bought some stock, figuring that the story was either a fabrication or an outlandish rumor. I was wrong, and still have the stock listed among my assets as a reminder to be more careful with my hard-earned money. D.V., Montreal, CanadaThe Fool Responds: The Bre-X story that was big news in 1997 was indeed a wild one, with billions of Canadian dollars lost. (Its not over yet, either, as the presumed-dead geologist whose supposed body was badly decomposed when it was found several days later has been rumored to still be alive.) The story is a cautionary tale about how volatile penny stocks can be, as they can be easily manipulated and have wiped out many naive investors. Many penny stocks are those of mining companies, without profitable track records but hopes of striking gold. Some Magic for Your PortfolioWalt Disney (NYSE: DIS) stock, up 17 percent year to date, isnt the bargain it was in January, but its likely to keep growing for long-term investors. Disney has a knack for making the most of big content acquisitions. It spent $7.4 billion on Pixar in 2006 and has reaped more than $5 billion in global ticket sales from it so far. Marvel cost $4.6 billion in 2009 and has generated $9.6 billion in worldwide box office sales so far. These box office figures dont include DVD and Blu-ray sales. Nor do they account for licensed T-shirts, pajamas, action figures or lunch boxes. Moreover, Disney keeps integrating Pixar and Marvel characters, and their stories, into cruise experiences and theme park rides. Disneys $4 billion Lucasfilm buyout will also pay huge dividends, as Disney unfolds the epic Star Wars universe and the Indiana Jones saga. Meanwhile, Disney is still capable of putting out a homegrown hit every so often, such as Frozen, which has generated nearly $1.3 billion in ticket sales worldwide, making it the fifth-highestgrossing movie of all time and the top dog in full-length animation. Then there are its parks and resorts, which generate a third of its revenue, and its media networks (think ABC and ESPN), generating 44 percent. Disney offers a lot to like. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Disney and has recommended it.) I came to life in 1962 in Scranton, Pa., as the Thrift D Discount Center. I took my current name in 1968 and am now a top U.S. drugstore chain, with more than 4,500 locations in 31 states. I bought the Brooks and Eckerd drugstore chains in 2007, making me the largest drugstore chain on the East Coast. I have had a long-running partnership with GNC and house its stores-withinstores. Ive redesigned many locations into Wellness stores. My annual revenue tops $25 billion. In the 1980s, many young people might have found my ticker symbol quite cool. Who am I? (Answer: Rite Aid) Insiders Buying and SellingQShould I care about insiders buying or selling shares in a stock I own? V.F., Dunedin, FloridaAIt depends. If the CEO of Keyboard Mart (ticker: QWERTY) sells lots of shares, you might worry that the companys in trouble. But executives these days often get much of their compensation in the form of stock. The CEO might just be selling some shares to generate cash to buy a house or pay a college bill. It is worth worrying about, though, if many insiders are selling many shares all at once. Meanwhile, if insiders are buying many shares, thats a promising sign. They know the company well and would presumably buy only if they expect the shares to rise. ***QWhen a company has its initial public offering (IPO), how do the people who have owned the company keep their ownership? K.W., Longmont, ColoradoAWhen a company goes public with an IPO, it usually sells only part of itself. Heres a simplified example: Imagine that the owner of Farm Dogs Inc. (ticker: BINGO) decides to sell 25 percent of it to the public via an IPO, to raise money to fuel growth. She currently owns all of the 100 million shares of the company and will sell 25 million of them to the public, so there will still be 100 million shares after the offering. Investment bankers help her determine the valuation of the company and decide to price the offering at $20 per share. This means her company will collect about $500 million (25 million times $20) when the shares are sold (less the investment banks fee of around 7 percent). She will retain ownership of 75 percent of the firm, or 75 million shares. Got a question for the Fool?

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYCarrara generating strong appeal at Talis Park BY KEVIN CAFFREYSpecial to Florida WeeklyWith site work nearing completion and construction of three buildings underway, the penthouse-style Carrara condominium residences at Talis Park in North Naples continue to generate strong appeal among homebuyers intent on enjoying the simplicity of a maintenance-free lifestyle. An enclave of spacious residences being built by WCI Communities, Carrara will feature 90 homes in 15 midrise buildings. Each building will consist of three floors over parking with two residences per floor. Purchase agreements have been finalized for 14 of the 18 residences in the three buildings under construction and are being accepted for an additional 12 residences in two buildings that are poised to begin construction. Completion of the first Carrara building is anticipated in spring 2015. Priced from the $690,000s, Carrara residences include a private elevator lobby, a spacious great room, a gourmet island kitchen, master suite and two guest ensuites, a library/media room, a powder bath and secured ground level parking. Each residence has a wraparound loggia and more than 2,900 square feet of air-conditioned living space. Carrara overlooks the sea dwarf paspalum fairways and greens of Talis Parks Greg Norman-Pete Dye designed golf course and the communitys Vyne House clubhouse on the grand piazza. Golf, tennis, a fitness center, spa and multiple dining venues will be within a short walk from the Carrara residences. Construction of the neighborhoods private hospitality area will begin this fall and include a pool, a covered gathering area, restrooms and grills. The hospitality area will be just steps away from Talis Parks Casa Cortese Grille, an outdoor dining and lounge destination adjacent to the communitys pristine driving range. Developer Kitson & Partners has created a new vision at Talis Park that redefines the country club experience and invites a select group of members to enjoy an active, health-oriented lifestyle. Talis Parks neighborhoods offer a parklike setting with golf course, preserve and water views, or a maintenance-free environment within walking distance of the communitys amenity core. This Inthe-Park or In-the-Village approach reflects Kitsons commitment to creating a community where every aspect of country club living is relevant to the residents daily lives. Carraras proximity to Casa Cortese and Vyne House will offer residents a full In-the-Village experience. Casa Cortese is a favored gathering place for Talis Park residents for lunch following a round of golf and during weekly happy hours that are included on the communitys full slate of social events. Vyne House consists of a series of spaces designed to be used every day, inviting users to come as they are in a relaxed, comfortable format. The buildings are interconnected by covered walkways and wrapped around multiple courtyards that offer the possibility of outdoor dining and entertaining. Vyne House Shops was completed last year and features Fionas Market Caf, with local fare and wine and bar service. The general-store personality of Fionas makes for an ideal gathering place for conversation and coffee after a bike ride or walk, after a workout, yoga or Pilates session in the Vyne House Core Fitness Center, or after a manicure or massage in the Esprit Spa, both of which have also been completed. Site work in advance of construction of Vyne House Phase II is underway. Vertical construction of the 26,470-square-foot project is scheduled to begin in fourth quarter of this year. Kitson anticipates holding a soft opening of Phase II in December 2015 and a grand opening in January 2016. Phase II will introduce Palm Court, an open-air courtyard that is the centerpiece of Vyne House. In addition to serving as a point of entry, Palm Court will be used as a social space suited to hosting a variety of events. The upper level will also include formal indoor dining, casual indoor and outdoor dining, a multi-purpose room adjacent to Palm Court, aerobics and cardio workout rooms and a wine room/boardroom for wine tastings and wine pairing dinners. The lower level of Vyne House Phase II will accommodate the golf pro shop as well as mens and ladies locker rooms. Phase II will include a pool and a rotunda with a double-sided fireplace overlooking the 18th green. The entrance to Talis Park is off Livingston Road north of Immokalee Road and east if Interstate 75. For more information, visit talispark.com.

OCTOBER 28, 2014 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS An unexpected crush, and its time to leave the village Yesterday, I spoke with a friend back home in the states. And hows France? he asked once wed caught me up on all the gossip. Its fantastic, I said and went through my list, ticking off all the excitement thats happened in the village since wed last spoken: the boar the hunters shot, Mr. Garcias 10-pound zucchini, the community rummage sale and all the junk on display. Finally, I reached the highlight of the week. And yesterday I went to Mass. Oh yeah? my friend said. How was it? Really cool. Really cool? Was there a laser light show? No, but there was incense and chanting and Wait. Are you pulling my leg? My friend laughed. You know youve been in the woods too long when Mass is really cool. He had a point. Ive been living in this remote mountain village in the southwestern part of France since the beginning of July, and the truth is theres not a lot going on. With only 50-odd residents, and most of them over 65, things have been a little slow. But the Mass really was cool. For starters, it was in an abbey. An actual, real-live abbey, with monks and everything. It had incense and Gregorian chants and a big stained glass window with golden light pouring through. And did I mention the monks? Maybe 25 of them, ranging in age from 18 all the way up to the retirement years. Many of them wore glasses of the wire-framed variety that gave them a studious, contemplative air. They had on the same white robes, very dignified looking, and the younger ones all possessed these lean, bony frames that gave them an air of cerebral intensity. Before the service, I took a seat in an empty pew and one of the young monks leaned down to ask if I would like him to loan me a missal. Perhaps, he said, youre not familiar with the Catholic service? I shook my head shyly. No. He smiled a warm, genuine smile and then returned a few minutes later with a black-bound book printed in English. With great care, he showed me the pages that would be covered during the service. Everything about him spoke of patience and gentleness, with an undercurrent of erudition, and I was surprised to find myself swooning. All through the Mass, I thought about this kind stranger. Toward the end of the service, after wed sung the Kyrie Eleison and passed the collection plate, when Id gone down on my knees and stood up again so many times that my back was starting to give out, I caught myself thinking that maybe I should convert to Catholicism. In the space of that hour and a half, I liked to think I had become enamored by the beauty of it, the pageantry and the mystery, the time and space for quiet reflection. But who was I kidding? I was enchanted by those monks. My friend was right: Ive been in the woods too long. I need to get out of this village and back to the world, where at least I can fall for someone who hasnt taken a vow of chastity.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthat hero and kind of larger-than-life person, but also very much as a human being whos suffering with very human things: fear and doubt and love and regret and sex, Mr. Nickell says. Hes very much a person here on earth. He adds that hes always interested in plays that show characters in a very human way. Why else tell the story, if we cant dip in as a human audience and watch people having their very human moments? The playwright has done just that with The Mountaintop, he adds. The two-person play is set in Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn., on April 3, 1968 the eve of Dr. Kings assassination. Earlier that day, Dr. King had delivered what is known as his Ive Been to the Mountaintop sermon at the Mason Temple (headquarters for the Church of God in Christ). In it, he discussed the possibility of an untimely death, mentioning threats on his life. I dont know what will happen now, Dr. King says to the crowd in conclusion. Weve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesnt matter to me now, because Ive been to the mountaintop. And I dont mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life longevity has its place. But Im not concerned about that now. I just want to do Gods will. And Hes allowed me to go up to the mountain. And Ive looked over, and Ive seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. And so Im happy tonight; Im not worried about anything; Im not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. The play takes place after Dr. King has delivered the Mountaintop speech. Hes come back to the Lorraine Motel with the weight of the world on him, says actor Jamil A.C. Mangan, who portrays the Civil Rights leader in this production. Dr. King had flown to Memphis from Atlanta, and was stressed and ill. Though wanting nothing more than to stay in bed, he had gone to the Mason Temple earlier that day and delivered what is now one of his best-known speeches. It was off-the-cuff, divine inspiration, Mr. Mangan says. He is giving hope that if we can see the mountaintop in our mind, and know that non-violence is the way to get there, well get there, one day. Felicia Curry plays a motel maid who talks with Dr. King in his room. It really is a speech of hope and his reassurance that (the Promised Land) is there, she says. Its a call to action. Forty-six years later, have we, as a nation, reached the Promised Land? Weve moved toward it, Ms. Curry says. This is a work in progress, something we will be reaching for. And then the next generation will be reaching for. Its the step analogy; everybody takes a step forward on the way to the Promised Land. Weve made tremendous steps, says her co-star. I didnt think wed have a black president. I didnt think wed have gay marriages. But its still a work in progress, Ms. Curry adds. Katori Hall has written this idea of passing it on, this idea of working together, working so that the next thing happens. I do one thing, somebody else picks it up and they do the next thing. Once we say weve reached the Promised Land, we stop working toward it. Treat each other the way you want to be treated. This is a continual growing motion, a daily work in progress for everyone.Powerful and theatricalThe Mountaintop premiered in London in 2009 and won the Olivier Award for Best Play. It opened on Broadway in September 2011, with Samuel Jackson playing Dr. King and Angela Bassett playing the maid. Its a powerful play, says Mr. Nickell, and very theatrical. When you find a play that embraces the medium of theater and challenges a director and a cast and the designers to really use their imagination and see what they can come up with to convey this very powerful story, thats a thrill. Dr. King has always been someone important in his life, the director says, noting that his parents were pacifist activists in the late 1960s and early 0s who were deeply influenced by Dr. Kings life and work. Mr. Mangans portrayal of Dr. King, is lovely and evocative of Dr. King, the director says, adding that the first thing he told the actor was: I dont want to try to create Dr. King. I want to create Jamils version of Katori Halls Dr. King. As for Ms. Curry, her character possesses power, sexiness, a grounded quality, a lived-in quality. (Shes) a woman with a full bag of tricks, Mr. Nickell says, The idea is that she has many different things at her disposal that she can use to get what she wants. Mr. Mangan has done the play before, at TheaterWorks in Hartford, Conn., and says he can feel Dr. Kings presence when working on the play. The fabric of this man is captured well by Katoris words, he says. For me, (the goal is) to truthfully tell the story, honestly and earnestly portray him and not necessarily do an imitation or a caricature. Though whats happening on stage is fictitious, its based in history, in a tumultuous time in the 1960s. Its mysterious, funny and powerful, Mr. Nickell says. Its also quite timely, he adds, considering the unrest and confusion going on in some communities in America right now. I think its always lovely to go back to the source, to the man who talked about radical love and non-violence. Its not a bad place to revisit.

He came across African-American artists and their salesmen, who were selling paintings from the trunks of their cars and by knocking on doors. Unable to gain gallery representation in the segregated Jim Crowe era, this group of 26 artists, most of who were self-taught, became known as The Highwaymen. Following a Highwaymen co-founders untimely murder in 1970, the groups artistic output waned and Mr. Black took up painting to boost their output. He quickly became adept and eventually became their top seller. In 1997, Mr. Black, addicted to crack cocaine, was sent to prison for nine years for drugs and grand theft. As fate would have it, a newspaper article on the Highwaymen ran in 1998, and the prison wardens gave Mr. Black an unprecedented license to liven up the drab institutions he was shuttled around to. As the only Highwaymen muralist, his life and work were chronicled in the book The Highwaymen Murals: Al Blacks Concrete Dreams by Gary Monroe in 2009. Efforts are now underway to preserve his murals at Hillsborough Correctional Institution, which is slated for demolition. Mr. Black often says that the three birds he incorporates into his paintings represent the Holy Trinity. He lives in Fort Pierce, where he teaches art lessons. Hes frequently invited to share his inspirational life story. His presentation at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers is free, but space is limited. For reservations, call 321-7430 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. HIGHWAYMENFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOOne of Al Blacks original Highwaymen paintings.

Its Noises OffDotty Otley doesnt know what to do with the sardines.Does she leave them on the table? Bring the plate off-stage? Bring them back on? Get some more from the kitchen?She keeps forgetting. The womans as dotty and ditzy as her name. Its less than 24 hours before opening night, and shes driving the director and the rest of the cast crazy with her dithering and absent-mindedness. This is how Noises Off opens the new season for The Naples Players. Its a play within a play. Or more accurately, a farce within a farce. The cast is having its last dress rehearsal of Nothing On, a silly frippery of a farce. And with only two weeks of rehearsal, they are woefully unprepared. There are missed cues, dropped lines and misplaced props. Dotty plays the housekeeper, Mrs. Clackett. Shes supposed to be in the house alone, but people keep sneaking in. And, with eight doors and one set of large windows, theres lots of opening and closing of doors, as there is in any farce. As Lloyd, the director, tells them: Its all about doors and sardines, getting on and off, getting the sardines on and off. Thats farce. Thats theater. Thats life. Bonnie Knapp plays Dotty, anchoring the show with her warmth and solid performance. You might think her characters having a tough time in Act I, but by Act III, shes having a complete meltdown and its wonderful to watch. Ms. Knapp takes care not to overplay her role; you truly believe shes an absent-minded actor playing a housekeeper whose only desire is to put her feet up, have a nice plate of sardines and watch the telly for the afternoon. Noises Off is filled with archetypal actors: Frederick (Robert Armstrong), who keeps asking what his motivation is; Belinda (Kristin Cassidy), who knows all the backstage gossip; Selsdon (Jim Corsica), a partially deaf has-been actor with a serious drinking problem; and Garry (James Duggan), who in real life stammers and cant even speak a simple declarative sentence, content to let his words drift off, often ending a sentence with a vague, You know Trying to corral them all is Lloyd (Larry Utterback), the frustrated director who is, true to stereotype, bedding an actress. That would be Brooke (Ricci Prioletti). Its obvious thats how she got her role, because shes so terrifically bad on stage, wooden and stiff, so obviously acting. Ms. Prioletti had me laughing every time she was on, with her oversized gestures, as if she were also playing charades while speaking her lines. And then there are the backstage workers: Tim (Richard Blaney), who works on the set and fills in for actors when needed, and Poppy (Rebecca Bronzini), the overworked, underappreciated stage manager whos in love with the director. Noises Off is divided into threes. First, we see the cast at the final dress rehearsal in Rochester. In Act II, the set is turned around 180 degrees, and we watch the goings-on backstage during a matinee performance in Buffalo. (Theres no explanation of what a British troupe is doing performing in upstate New York.) Personal relationships have deteriorated, jealousies erupted and misunderstandings multiplied. Because we have seen the show being rehearsed, we now understand whats happening on stage and what cues are being missed, what props are needed. Then, for Act III, we see the cast performing on stage in Albany, as if were the audience. By then, the show is a complete disaster, with actors forgetting lines, walking on stage at the wrong time, losing props, making up dialogue, deliberately sabotaging each other. Though the opening act can seem a little slow, by the second act I was laughing myself silly, as things keep getting worse and worse and the actors are panicking onstage, trying to figure out what to do. If you go see Noises Off, do yourself a favor and stay for the entire show. When I went to see it a few nights ago, patrons left at both intermissions. To me, thats like doing your work and then neglecting to stick around for your paycheck. In other words, you invested your time and energy for one act, but didnt bother to stay for the payoff. This is how farces often work: The playwright sets up the premise in the first act and then, after that, everything goes to hell in a hand basket, with disaster upon disaster, mayhem and multiple misunderstandings. If you leave too soon, its like getting off a rollercoaster just as it crests the top of its first big drop. You miss the crazy ride. You miss all the fun. However, this production was not without its flaws. The actors British accents varied wildly, from excellent to non-existent. And the audience didnt seem to catch some lines, due to lack of projection or lack of enunciation. The pacing could also be fine-tuned a little. Some of the playwrights jokes are dated and not as funny as they probably were in 1982, when the play first opened: an actress losing her contact at vital times, and everyone having to get down on all fours to search for it, and the same actress meditating backstage. But this is a really smart, cleverly constructed play. The lines in Nothing On, the playwithin-the-play, serve double-duty in Act II. Theres funny dialogue, situational comedy and physical comedy. (Mr. Duggan received well-deserved applause for falling down an entire flight of stairs.) Mike Santos set also received appreciative applause when turned around during intermission, so we could see backstage. And Craig Walcks lighting made it seem as if there really is a stage and a live audience behind the set. Theres even an entire fake program encased within the true Naples Players playbill, with funny fictional biographies of the actors and director. (The director is described as being a failed sock-seller whose plays apparently all have some form of clothing in the title: Socks Before Marriage, Briefs Encounter, Hanky Panky. He obviously ran out of articles of clothing to name in a title, as his 17th play is called Nothing On.) Mary Wallace has designed some nice costuming; of particular note are Ms. Knapps colorful apron and Mr. Utterbacks ugly 0s outfit. Humor is difficult to perform, and farce especially so. Director Dallas Dunnagan does a good job with these community actors. Ms. Knapp, Ms. Prioletti and Mr. Duggan especially stand out. I wish the audience hadnt been so lackluster the night I attended. The title Noises Off refers to noises or sounds off-stage. I only wish there had been more sounds chuckles and belly laughs coming from the audience. Sometimes its lonely being the only one laughing. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Noises Off by The Naples Players>> When: Through Oct .18 >> Where: The Sugden Community Theatre, Naples >> Cost: $35 ($10 for students) >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org Left to right: Belinda/Flavia (Kristin Cassidy), Garry/Roger (James Duggan), Brooke/Vicki (Ricci Prioletti), Poppy (Rebecca Bronzini), Lloyd (Larry Utterback), Dotty/Mrs. Clackett (Bonnie Knapp) and Frederick/Philip (Robert Armstrong) are in a state of disbelief as to what is happening off stage in Noises Off.

Expect some resistance, maybe even some expressions of resentment. But stay with it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Changing your mind doesnt have to be a problem once you realize that you might have good and sufficient cause to do so. Make your explanations clear and complete. Good luck. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An unkept promise can be irksome and easily raise the Archers ire. But instead of getting into a confrontation, take time to check why someone you relied on came up short. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A new workplace distraction creates an unnecessary delay. The sooner you deal with it, the better for all concerned. A personal matter also should be attended to as soon as possible. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Once again, the Aquarians gift for applying both practical and creative methods to resolve a situation makes all the difference. Personal relationships thrive during the weekend. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A relationship appears to be losing its once-strong appeal for reasons that might be different from what you think. An open and honest talk could lead to some surprising revelations. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A changing situation calls for a change in plans. Although you might prefer the schedule you had already worked up, you could do better by agreeing to make the needed adjustments. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That once seemingly rock-solid proposition you favored might be hiding some serious flaws. Take time to check it more carefully and question anything that seems out of kilter. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Finish up those lingering tasks so that you can then arrange to spend some time in quiet reflection. This will go a long way in restoring both your physical and spiritual energies. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A family situation could heat up and boil over unless you deal with it as soon as possible. Try to persuade other family members to work with you to help cool things down. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Cheer up, Kitty Cat! That low feeling will begin to ebb by midweek, and you should be back in the social swirl in time for the weekend. A long-postponed deal could be starting up again. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Going too fast and too far on too little knowledge could be risky. Best to slow down and check for any gaps in your information. Its what you dont know that could hurt you. BORN THIS WEEK: Your life is bound by your belief that character counts more than anything else.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 C11 LATEST FILMSHector and the Search for Happiness Is it worth $10? YesThere are few generalizations that are always true, which is why using such lazy turns-of-phrase in writing is amateur and unprofessional. This, however, is an exception, because deep down everyone wants to be happy. Therefore, a movie about one mans quest for happiness should have worldwide appeal and make billions, right? Not so fast. Hector and the Search for Happiness is a well intentioned saccharine yarn that, even though it lacks pizazz and punch, has enough laughs to keep the audience happy. To its credit and (financial) detriment, it is neither silly, crude, vulgar, effects-driven nor insultingly dumb enough to become a Transformers-sized blockbuster. It is also rated R when it easily couldve been PG-13; R-rated films rarely find huge box office success. Hector (Simon Pegg) is a bored British psychiatrist who follows strict patterns and never deviates. For fun he flies robotic planes with his chaps in the park. Girlfriend Clara (Rosamund Pike) isnt as tightly wound, but she does love and enable him. Hector is a ticking time bomb. Hes not listening to his patients. He doesnt enjoy Claras office party. He beats up a friend (Bruce Fontaine) in the park for flying a plane too close to his own. It is decided: Hector will travel the world to investigate what makes people happy, all the while trying to figure out how to make himself happy in the process. The first stop is China, where he meets a successful businessman (Stellan Skarsgard) and an attractive female student (Ming Zhao) whos too good to be true. Then its Africa to help the needy and meet up with an old friend (Barry Atsma), and finally Los Angeles to catch up with an old flame (Toni Collette). Throughout it all, co-writer and director Peter Chelsom (Serendipity, 2001) has Hector make notes on what makes people happy, but these amount to mere observations, not solutions. This is practical given that you cant force someone to be happy, nor can you impose items/gestures toward someone and know for sure theyll bring happiness and not resentment. Ironically, this also reveals the films inherent flaw: It poses a question What is the key to happiness? that it cannot possibly fully answer. Animated sequences and flashbacks to Hectors youth heighten the surreal nature of his journey, and Mr. Pegg is an ideal choice for the lead role, which requires comedy, pathos and various points in between. Hes certainly a step up from Ben Stiller in the similarly themed The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which was also high on adventure but lacked the practical honesty needed for the story to resonate. Will Hector and the Search for Happiness bring you happiness? Not necessarily, but it will bring you two hours of enjoyable entertainment. For some, thats enough to be happy. For others, not so much. This dichotomy is the root of the story: It is, after all, up to the individual to find what makes him/her happy and to embrace it and live life to the fullest. dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Hector references Tintin on more than one occasion; Simon Pegg voiced Thompson in Steven Spielbergs animated The Adventures of Tintin (2011).

Its strictly for little kids, and Im not even sure if theyll enjoy 77 minutes of this. Worse, its torture for parents. Rated G.A Walk Among the Tombstones (Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens, David Harbour) An unlicensed private eye (Mr. Neeson) helps a drug lord (Mr, Stevens) find the men who murdered the drug lords wife. While its always fun to watch Mr. Neeson as a badass, the story is unfocused and lacks surprises. Rated R.The Trip to Italy (Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Rosie Fellner) In this sequel to The Trip (2010), friends Mr. Coogan and Mr. Brydon play a version of themselves as they tour fine eateries in Italy. Its more consistently funny than the original, and the beautiful Italian landscape is nearly worth the price of admission alone. Not Rated (strong language). Tusk (Justin Long, Michael Parks, Genesis Rodriguez) An arrogant podcaster (Mr. Long) is taken captive and tortured by a madman in the Canadian woods. Writer/ director Kevin Smiths (Clerks) film is incredibly bizarre and not always in a good way. Its funny, horrific, unwatchable and yet unforgettable. It is an odd experience that I have to recommend based on the fact that I cant get it out of my mind. Rated R. Dolphin Tale 2 (Harry Connick Jr., Nathan Gamble, Ashley Judd) With dolphin Winter not feeling well, teenage Sawyer (Mr. Gamble) struggles with a big life decision as he tries to find Winter a partner. Drama-wise it trips over itself multiple times, which is not good when its already painfully predictable. Rated PG.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner) Reporter April (Ms. Fox) teams with four mutated, talking ninja turtles to stop a crime syndicate. This is an entertaining, full origin story with laughs and solid action. Rated PG-13.Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (Jessica Alba, Eva Green, Josh Brolin) Four vignettes comprise the action in writer/directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Millers sequel to the 2005 sensation Sin City. None of the four stories titillate, and the film only looks good not great in 3D. Rated R.

The Identical (Blake Rayne, Ashley Judd, Ray Liotta) Identical twins are separated at birth; one (Mr. Rayne) becomes an Elvis-like big time star, while the other (Mr. Rayne again) struggles to escape his fathers (Mr. Liotta) pressure to join the ministry. The premise is clever, but Mr. Rayne isnt quite ready for the big time, the singing sounds like an Elvis rip-off and the story has no surprises. Rated PG. If I Stay (Chloe Grace Moretz, Mireille Enos, Jamie Blackley) Teenage cello prodigy Mia (Ms. Moretz) is in a horrific car accident and must choose to live or die as we witness flashbacks to her Juilliard audition and growing love for boyfriend Adam (Mr. Blackley). Although there are some nice moments, the story as a whole is labored and the Mia/Adam relationship doesnt feel real. Rated PG-13.The Hundred-Foot Journey 1/2(Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal) The fussy proprietor of a Michelin-starred French restaurant (Ms. Mirren) doesnt take kindly to her new neighbors/competition, a spunky Indian family whose restaurant is right across the street. Like the food on screen, the movie looks fine and is perfectly edible, but its nothing special. Rated PG.The November Man (Pierce Brosnan, Olga Kurylendo, Luke Bracey) An ex-CIA operative (Mr. Brosnan) returns to action when his old flame uncovers dirt on the Russian president-elect. It has all the pieces of a solid espionage thriller, but they dont come together in an entertaining way. Rated R.Into the Storm (Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh) Locals try to survive as a series of tornadoes strike a small midwestern town. Some action scenes are great and others miss the mark. With forgettable characters and rote dialog, this isnt one to run off to. Rated PG-13.Magic In The Moonlight 1/2(Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Marcia Gay Harden) A world-renowned magician (Mr. Firth) travels to the south of France to reveal an American psychic (Ms. Stone) as a fraud, but his perspective changes as they spend time together. Ms. Stones character is underplayed and the story is predictable, but Mr. Firths snarky charm keeps you laughing. Rated PG-13. Guardians Of The Galaxy (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista) Unlikely heroes Star-Lord (Mr. Pratt), Gamora (Ms. Saldana), Drax (Mr. Bautista), Groot (voice of Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (voice of Bradley Cooper) try to stop the villainous Ronan (Lee Pace) from possessing a powerful orb. Its action-packed, hilarious and an out-of-this-world good time. It also fits nicely within the Avengers-driven Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rated PG-13.

The seated baby figures are sound speakers that went for $3,277 at an Absolute Auctions online sale. Only 100 were made and half were lost in a fire. KOVEL: ANTIQUES Modern speakers may be art based on the beholder BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELWhat kind of antiques collector are you? Some collectors search for pieces from a past era; some want pieces with a connection to a famous person or event. Many collectors are furnishing a house or apartment and want antiques that are useful and well-priced. But younger collectors today seek useful things from the s era that are colorful, well-designed and in excellent condition. Telephones, electric fans, telephone insulators, large metal and wooden machinery, steel school lockers, and jewelry made from computer parts sell quickly at shows. At a recent Absolute Auctions & Realty online auction, two pink Dada Babies, figural speakers only 6 inches tall, sold for $3,277. Their bases are marked Dada Baby Art by B & W (Bowers & Wilkins), Handmade by Blueroom Loudspeakers. Their modern shape and color may have attracted bidders, but many technology collectors must have wanted these rare speakers. Bowers & Wilkins is an audio-equipment company founded in England in 1966 by John Bowers and Roy Wilkins, who wanted to make better sound speakers. They met an artist who thought music would sound better if played through speakers with rounded, not straight, edges and the company started making speakers in several abstract modern shapes. In 1996, B & W created its Blueroom Dada Babies. The wire for each speaker connected to the figure like an umbilical cord. The seated baby has a head that rotates to send the sound in several directions. Dada Babies originally came in five colors: blue, red, yellow, black or pink. Only a few still exist because half of the 100 speakers made in 1996 were lost in a fire. Examples are occasionally offered online or at live auctions. Are the just-purchased babies now exhibited on a living room table as works of art? Or are they on a shelf with other unusual well-designed pieces of technology?

Inside a drawer theres an old emblem with HL in the center surrounded by the name Harris Lebus. The chest is in very good condition. Can you tell me something about the maker? A: Harris Lebus was a family-run business that became Englands largest furniture manufacturer in the 1890s. Louis Lebus, a German immigrant, opened a furniture shop in London in about 1857. Sometime after 1879, when Louis died and his son, Harris, took over the business, the name of the company became Harris Lebus. It made quality furniture inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. During World War I, the company made airplanes, gliders, tent pins and other military equipment. Furniture manufacturing resumed after the war. During World War II, production switched to munitions, and the factory was involved in a top secret government project. Two or three wooden tanks, exact replicas of Sherman tanks, were built. They were meant to be used as decoys to fool German bombers. Harris Lebus became a public company in 1947 and later made inexpensive furniture using chip board and other woods. The company went out of business in 1969. Q: I have a bronze sculpture of a chubby Greek god sitting on a donkey. The god has a wreath on his head and is carrying an animal pelt. It was acquired by one of my relatives, who said he was the first Allied officer to enter Hitlers quarters at Berchtesgaden in the Bavarian Alps. It came from Hitlers long desk in front of the large window overlooking the front of the building. The sculpture in 10 inches high and is mounted on marble. What is it worth? A: Hitlers quarters were bombed by the British and burned by retreating SS troops before Allied troops entered. If you can prove the bronze sculpture came from Hitlers desk, it will be of interest to collectors. Without provenance a letter from the officer who found the sculpture or some other proof of Hitlers ownership the value is the same as for any other unsigned bronze sculpture. Q: I have an iron doorstop shaped like a stagecoach pulled by two horses. There are two coachmen, one sitting in front holding the reigns and one in the back blowing a horn. Its embossed GR and London Royal Mail, N17 and Patent Pending. Can you give my any information about my doorstop? A: Most old cast-iron doorstops sold today were made from about 1890 to 1930. Many have been reproduced. The design for your coach and horses doorstop was patented by Charles Tuteur of Chicago in July 1930. Value depends on condition. Your doorstop usually sells for about $100 to $200. Tip: If your stainless-steel knife blades stain in a dishwasher, rinse them, then dry or clean them with silver polish.

HughesArcadia The temperature sign over the bank read 101 degrees, the time, if anyone cared, was 11:15 a.m. She could see the translucent, squiggly waves bouncing off the parking lot surface of the old drive-in on the side of Highway17. Witches heat, thats what her mom had always called the illusion. Whatever it was called, it was hot and the waves were just one more confirmation of the stupidity of this summer trip to the interior of Florida. She laughed at herself, going to a 50th year high school reunion, something she swore shed never do. Such a small class from such a long time and so many worlds away from her present life. The light turned green and as soon as she pressed on the gas pedal of her gray Lexus hybrid, she felt the pull of the steering wheel and heard the bump-bump sound of a flattening tire. Damn road, she thought, no doubt full of nails and debris from farm trucks, fruit-hauling semis and migrant buses overloaded with workers. All of it crowded on the same old two-lane road that was way more than 50 years old. No choice, she pulled off the road into the hot parking lot, taking time to park in the shade on the side of the decrepit building. The shade didnt offer much relief from the summer heat but at least the glare was out of her eyes. She sat in her car running the motor to keep the AC going, looking through her purse for the card of the auto association with the rescue road service telephone number for emergencies. She was sure 60-plus-year-old ladies with flat tires in the As we head into the final round, weve received about 160 entries for the Florida Weekly Writing Challenge.

The voice on her cell phone requested the cross streets where she was located. She gave the name of Highway 17 and the town. Not enough direction, complained the voice at the service. They needed two street names to accurately locate a customer. Reluctantly, she got out of the car and walked out in the sun to the corner to check and see what the streets were called these days. Damn, it was too hot to walk on the overheated parking lot to the corner sign. Shed have to squint in the glaring light to read the signs. Operator, she said into the phone Im at the corner of Magnolia and Brevard. Brevard is Highway 17. Actually you have to turn off Brevard to get into the parking lot. There is no entry from Magnolia which is also known as Highway 70 as I previously told you. Got it, responded the voice on the cell phone. OK, itll be at least 30 minutes before we can get someone there. Will you be all right? Yes, she replied, Im in the shade and I have AC in the car. Im sure Ill be fine, As she walked back to her car she thought about the corner address, Magnolia and Brevard. It sounded so familiar. She knew this address. As she approached the building she thought it might be open because of all the signs indicating service was available. As she looked in the window, she realized it was closed. Most of the food items she could see indicated the type of food available was probably Mexican. She could see large bags of Masa flour for tortillas, jars of salsa, cans of tomato sauce and chilies and similar seasonings. Wow, certainly not a food choice available when she lived here. She noticed the parking lot where her car was parked seemed like a recent addition. Scars of what might had been a room on the side of the building were still visible on its walls. She sat on her car seat and turned the AC up to cool her sweating body. As she looked around, she realized she did know where she was. This old building used to be called The Point, she thought. It was the weekend and special event hangout for high-school students in her day. This was the place where you spent time with your friends driving around and around the parking lot checking out who was there. After all, back then, gas was only 30 cents a gallon. You could find that much in the bottom of a purse or the floorboard of a car. Parents didnt fuss so much then. They were not obsessed about their childrens whereabouts. Everyone knew where you were. It was a small town, not so many kids to keep track of and no place else to go after a football or basketball game. She remembered the room on the side of the building. It had a jukebox where she and her friends danced and laughed and enjoyed being young. There was an innocence and sweetness about those gatherings. In her mind she could see them now. Sharon and Genie were always showing them new dances. It was a special place and time, before the war and peace marches and the civil rights movement. Back then, most of her friends didnt worry about what happened after high school. She had always known she would go away to college after graduation. She had already been accepted in a college in the North, had earned a scholarship and, with that, secured the promise of a new life as far away from here as one could get. She remembered this place was where she and Bobby slow danced a hundred times. Bobby had a wonderful smile that stirred her soul. They met here every Friday night. He would show up wearing pressed jeans with a crease down the legs, a starched white cowboy shirt with pearl buttons and beautiful cowboy boots. Not the kind marketed to everyone today at the large sports stores, but the real ones that were broken in over a period of years to fit just one pair of feet. His boots had the high heels and narrow toes and tooled leather down the fitted sides. He never once stepped on her toes in those boots. She could remember how he smelled in that starched white shirt. There was a clean, pure masculine smell to him and especially his shoulder where her head lay as they danced. The dance was so intimate with their bodies so close it was as if they were part of each other. As she thought about it, she was surprised todays kids, with their pornographic twerking didnt understand the pleasure of making love with your clothes on while slow dancing. Her parents were always polite to him, but they made it clear to her they did not care for him. They felt he had little ambition and would live and die right here. He was the son of a small cattle rancher and that was what he intended to become, a cattle rancher. That was not a future they saw for her. They did not allow her to date him but she still saw him at school and every Friday they had their dance. The last dance they had was here. The jukebox played their favorite song. The King himself sang Are You Lonesome Tonight for them, just as he had so many times. The night had ended in an argument. Bobby did not want her to go to college up North. He wanted to get married as soon as possible after they graduated. She didnt understand why he couldnt wait for her to follow her dreams. Neither of them understood the future would change so drastically and violently. After graduation she went to college in the North and was swept up in the Civil Rights movement and later in the protests against the war. She met and married a student activist. After college, her husband went into politics. She became a prominent congressmans wife and had never returned to live in the South. While in college, she had learned from friends at home that Bobby had been drafted into the Army. In her third year of college, the dean had called her into his of ce and let her know Bobby had died in a place called Chu Lai in Vietnam. She had been stunned for months but life went on for her. Now, as the memories came back to her in the parking lot, tears ran down her face for the dead son of a small cattle rancher. She could still hear Bobby singing in her ear the words from the song of their last dance. Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare? Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there? Is your heart lled with pain, shall I come back again? Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

FLORIDA WRITERSPregnant sheriff finds big trouble in Life and Death sequelLife and Death on Siesta Key by Sheila Marie Palmer. CreateSpace. 368 pages. Trade paperback, $14.99.Sheila Marie Palmers sequel to Life and Death on the Tamiami Trail (2012) continues to explore the Sarasota of the mid-1980s in meaningful contrast to the almost vanished community as it existed some 30 years earlier. The authors (and lead characters) nostalgia for the kinder, simpler time hovers over the arena of corruption, greed and violence that Sheriff Bernadette (Bernie) Davis contends with as the chief law enforcement officer in her county. Nestled between two high-rise condo buildings on Sarasotas Siesta Key is a private home that has withstood the assaults of developers. Its resident, a blonde beauty named Sally Keith, has been murdered there. A strong circumstantial case exists against Sallys boyfriend, Danny Dean, who happens to be not only the county administrator, but also a man whom Bernie dated briefly before meeting her husband, DeSoto County Sheriff Buck Davis. Now Bernie, garbed in a maternity outfit, must leave the ranch house headquarters of the cattle and citrus business her husband owns and get to work. Mr. Dean will speak with no one else. He was found with the murder weapon in his hand a gun he had given Sally for protection and he swears that she was already dead when he arrived. The investigation begins with attempts to learn more about Sally and a search for any possible witnesses. The latter brings Bernie to knocking on condo doors, visiting a nearby shopping area and meeting up with a bunch of witches whose new moon and full moon ceremonies take place at the nearby beach. She appoints Detective Ike McDuffie, a childhood friend whose career is stalled, to be her partner on this case. Tracking down Sallys past takes Bernie to snowbound St. Peter, Minn. Here the sheriff discovers facts about Sallys background, including childhood troubles, abuse and several years in a mental hospital. Her files include a photo of Sally as a young woman who had been raped and beaten. Then a similar photo of another young woman turns up. While Sally had straightened out her life and become an ER nurse in Sarasota, perhaps her tormented past had caught up with her, leading to her death. Sheriff Bernie finds her own life threatened when she gets too close to the truth. As the case progresses, the noose of suspense tightens. Ms. Palmer employs the full range of storytelling tools to put the reader on the scene. The stretches of dialogue that dramatize Bernies relationship with her loving, understanding husband, her relationships with her subordinates as they brainstorm and make plans, and her interviewing technique with witnesses and others are strong points in the novel. Realistic and revelatory, they heighten Bernies character while exposing necessary information in a piecemeal way that forces readers to turn pages. Another strength of this novel is the authors handling of place. Well-drawn building exteriors and interiors, natural and neighborhood settings, weather and the loving flashback scenes to the 1950s (which are accompanied by the authors own photographs) all lend solidity and authority to the narrative. Also authentically detailed is the authors description of just how a case unfolds. Though not presented clinically, the procedural steps have a surehanded feel. No doubt Ms. Palmers experience working in the court system has aided this dimension of the novel. The Life and Death mystery series has a unique charm that I believe will bring it a growing audience. Ms. Palma b C o q h philJASONpkjason@comcast.net PALMER

The exhibit has traveled the U.S., Europe and the Middle East. The photos were confiscated from the deportees in 1943 upon their arrival in the camp. While the Nazis ordered that all pictures be destroyed, somehow these special photos remained hidden for more than 40 years. During a 1986 visit to Auschwitz, Ms. Weiss accidently discovered 2,400 pictures in a storeroom. Depicting happy, smiling people, enjoying everyday life and special occasions, the pictures are simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking. Most of those in the photos would not survive their time at the camp. During her gallery talk, Ms. Weiss will recount her discovery of the photos and her efforts to track down surviving family members. The museum is at 4760 Tamiami Trail N. Regular museum admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students. Tickets to Ms. Weiss gallery talk are $15. Reservations are required by Thursday, Oct. 9. Call 263-9200, email Danielle@holocaustmuseumswfl.org or visit holocaustmuseumswfl.org. One Book Southwest Florida The museum hosts the first session of One Book Southwest Florida from 7-8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 13. Collier County librarian Denise McMahon will lead the discussion of Gertrudas Oath by Ram Oren. The book details the true story behind a Catholic nannys promise during World War II to the dying mother of a 3-year-old Jewish boy. Gertruda Babilinska promised to get the boy out of war-torn Poland to safety in Palestine and raise him as her own son. The book recounts their perilous journey to freedom and the people who help them on their way. One Book Southwest Florida encourages community dialogue through shared reading of a book. The program is being presented in conjunction with the Collier County Public Library System and GenShoah of Southwest Florida. It is the first of four discussions taking place in Collier County this season. The culmination will be two presentations in January by Michael Stolowitzsky, the young subject of Gertrudas Oath. The discussion is free. Reservations are required due to space limitations. Call the museum at 263-9200 or email Danielle@holocaustmuseumswfl.org. Copies of both The Last Album and Gertrudas Oath are available for purchase at the Museum.

C26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 2-8, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYof Cuba, so I had no idea it was once the most thriving island in the Caribbean. It reminded me of Paris or more accurately, what a rundown Paris would look like. Havana has very few skyscrapers; most of the buildings just four to six stories, just like Paris. The buildings are extremely ornate, with filigree, columns, mosaics and other lavish ornamentation. And every one of them is deteriorating; some to the point of ruin. Which, as sad as that is, makes for awesome photographs. What is it with photographers and ruins? We love them. Travel regulations have been relaxed so Americans can legally visit Cuba with certain stipulations. We went on a People-toPeople visa with a tour company. It was a great way to go, as we got to experience the rich culture as well as the architectural heritage. Naturally, we smoked the Cuban cigars, drank the rum and tried the coffee (I couldnt quite get the coffee down). We went to a couple of organic farms, drank honey from a live beehive and visited Ernest Hemingways house as well as the homes and workshops of several artists. I knew there were many 1950s American cars on the road in Cuba. I didnt know, however, that MOST of the cars in Cuba are that old. Its a common sight to see men working on the their cars on the side of the road. Cubans are ingenious when it comes to keeping up old cars. Chevys somehow end up with Ford bumpers, Oldsmobiles with Chrysler engines. They make it work. If you go to Cuba, dont miss a ride in one of these old convertibles. And if youre taking pictures, try to shoot a solo car with something interesting in the background for the most impact. Cuba is filled with incredible artists. We visited a street full of murals, a pottery co-op and a house and most of a city block decorated with mosaics. (If you purchase artwork in Cuba, youll have to pay a tax to get it home.) We also visited a ration store. The Cuban government supplies rice, beans and other staples to every citizen. Once a week, they bring their bag and ration book to the ration store for their groceries. You will be hard pressed to find a retail store in Cuba. There are a few, but with the average monthly income of $40, most Cubans cannot afford to shop much. One of the biggest surprises for me was the transportation system. Most Cubans get around by taxi which can be an old car, a truck with the canvas tops like you see in the military, or even a horse and cart. Cuba was the most fascinating trip I have ever taken. It is truly like stepping back in time. Way back. I can hardly wait to return. Peggy Farren, the founder of Understand Photography training center in Naples, is organizing a return trip to Cuba for a group of 15 people May 10-15. For more information, visit understandphotography. com.CUBAFrom page A1 PEGGY FARREN / FLORIDA WEEKLY Bicycles are a good way to get around. Even the most ornate buildings are rundown, some in ruins. Canvas-topped busses are another popular mode of mass transportation. Cubans are famous for their coffee, cigars and rum. The intrepid travelers tried all three at once. Most of the cars on the road in Cuba are from the 1950s.

Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-3187 From the deluxe atmosphere to the expansive wine program to the extraordinary twists on Italian cuisine, Angelinas Ristorante set the bar high when it opened in 2008 and remains one of Bonita Springs finer dining experiences. Although categorized as Italian, the brand has stretched to reflect the restaurants broader aspirations. Menu options range from something as basic as flatbreads dressed up with interesting toppings such as squash blossoms, to the more rarefied oh-so-tender dry-aged steak tartare with truffle shavings. Its tempting to make an entire meal from the freshly made pastas with add-ins like crab and slow-roasted veal. But dont miss inventive entrees such as seared scallops paired with crisply roasted pork belly sprinkled with Brussels sprout leaves. Desserts are surprisingly inexpensive and worth saving room for. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2014 Benja Thai, 6438 Naples Blvd., Naples; 591-1122 From the creators of Thai Udon Cafe comes a second little charmer, this one tucked between CenturyLink and ChickFil-A near the Hollywood 20 movie theaters. Like its older sibling, Benja offers well-executed Japanese and Thai dishes but also has a spacious sushi bar, a holdover from its days as Sumo Sushi Sake. From the sushi menu, a standout was the blue crab roll made with authentic flaky crab rather than surimi, spicy mayo, tempura flake, cucumber and tobiko. The yellow dragon roll crunchy tempura shrimp, asparagus and avocado topped with raw salmon was also first-rate. Skip the hamachikama (grilled yellowtail cheek), which had an overly strong taste, and try the curry-laced crab Rangoon instead. The chicken volcano could have used a more vibrant sauce, but the pumpkin curry with shrimp was zesty and full of calabaza and shellfish. Service was attentive throughout the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2013 HobNob Kitchen & Bar, 720 Fifth Ave., Naples; 580-0070Well-known restaurateur Michael Hernandez (Aqua, Bistro 821, Bistro 41 and Zoes, among others) and Executive Chef Tony Biagetti (formerly of Handsome Harrys) have created a spot that appeals to all of the senses and offers a casual setting yet takes no shortcuts with food, drink or service. From the list of creative cocktails, I loved the Watermelon Fresca (organic cucumber vodka, watermelon juice, cucumber and mint), and the by-the-glass wine list has some great choices. An octopus and white bean appetizer was a superb blend of flavors and textures. Grilled artichoke hearts were tender and delicate, served with a lemon aioli. While the Snapper in Crazy Water sounded more exotic than it turned out to be (the sauce made of coconut water, tomatoes and basil), it was nonetheless tasty. The rotisserie chicken was perfectly cooked, served with mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and onions. For dessert, try the Bonaffee pudding, a toffee pudding with bananas.Full bar.Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed February 2014 Meredays Fine Dining, Naples Bay Resort, 1500 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 732-0784 The eponymous restaurant of chef/ owner Charles Mereday is a wonder of gracious service, sumptuous surroundings and the inspired cuisine that its creator simply terms American but that is so much more. This is a truly superb restaurant and one that should not be missed. Food is served as multi-course small plates (choose three, four or five courses, or sit at the bar and order a large plate) and changes with the seasonal availability of ingredients. I can vouch for the perfectly crafted heirloom red and gold beet salad with grilled ricotta salada, mint and orange segments; superb seared scallops with arugula and parsnip puree; b utternut squash ravioli with tempura-fried squash blossom; Creole shrimp and cheddar grits; grilled salmon on sweet potato puree; crispy duck leg with wild mushroom risotto; and warm sticky toffee pudding with sweet toffee sauce and brown sugar ice cream. Theres an excellent wine list to choose from as well. Full bar. Food: Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2013 Restaurant Bonjour, 2009 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 566-2275 Where Mimis Cooking once stood, now Restaurant Bonjour does business with Bernard Massuger welcoming guests warmly, just as his predecessor, Marie-Michelle Rey, did. He also offers some of the old favorites. Every dish we ordered was beautifully plated. I can recommend the endive and Roquefort salad with sesame vinaigrette and the smoked salmon with asparagus and crisp baguette slices. Bouillabaisse du Gulf features bay scallops, salmon, shrimp and mussels in a delicate saffron bouillon, accompanied by rouilleslathered bread. Roasted duckling came with an outstanding sundried cranberry sauce that was good enough to drink. Warm creme brulee served as an excellent finish to a satisfying meal. Beer and wine served.

Last year, the cafe invited in Delicious Raw, an equally lovely and accomplished fruit and juice bar that now occupies the back half of the restaurant, forming an inspired union. On a recent sleepy Sunday morning, we wandered in looking for two things: some serious well-brewed coffee and breakfast, in that order. Even before we walked in the door, it was evident something good was happening here. Despite the fact that it was already fairly warm and muggy, there were several outdoor tables occupied by parties tucking into omelets and pastries and ahhh! cups of steaming, aromatic coffee. The dining room was even busier than the outdoor area, with friends and families sprawled in comfortable rattan chairs around the spotless, brightly lit room dominated by a wall lined with glass cases filled with freshly baked pastries. Its a sit-anywhere-youd-like kind of place. We quickly found a table, and our server just as quickly found us. She swiftly dispensed hot coffee and menus and breakfast flowed smoothly along from there. The menu is straightforward, with omelettes, Benedicts and eggs however you choose (all made with organic eggs), as well as crepes, French toast, Belgian waffles, pancakes, breakfast sandwiches, oatmeal and, of course, all those great-looking pastries, scones and such. And, although its sort of in its own space beyond the bustle of the cafe, Delicious Raw was up and running as well, its menu available in the cafe. So theres no settling for something as mundane as fresh orange juice here. Instead, how about a Watermelon Hydrator, made with watermelon juice, mint and coconut water? Or Liquid Oxygen, with apple, beet and carrot juice enlivened with ginger and cayenne? You can, of course, get your wheat grass shot here, too, if you must. (I dont care how healthy it is. On the rare occasions when Ive been persuaded to choke one down, Ive felt like a cow chewing her cud.) We tried the Sunset on Fifth, a 16-ounce blend of fresh strawberries, banana, pineapple, orange juice and almond milk ($7.50). The blushing pink concoction is served cold, with the all-natural flavors of the fruit complementing one another nicely. One smoothie was plenty for two to share when also having a standard breakfast or have your own and make it a meal. Having started out with something virtuous, I felt no guilt ordering the lobster Benedict ($18.95), a daily special. This dish truly was worthy of being labeled a special. The eggs were poached just until they were cooked through so the yolks were still runny. There were big chunks of lobster scattered around and beneath the eggs, with a lightly toasted English muffin beneath and Hollandaise sauce of perfect consistency on top. Bits of sundried tomatoes were scattered across the top and just enough golden brown potatoes finished off the plate. I found this a delicious alternative to the typical Benedict in which Canadian bacon often overshadows all the other ingredients. The cafe also offers a vegetarian version featuring tomatoes, spinach and asparagus. For a healthy breakfast that feels like a splurge, consider the Ironman oatmeal ($7.90), a hearty bowl of oatmeal mixed with fresh beet-carrot-apple juice and topped with a generous amount of almonds, flaxseeds, raisins, apples and agave nectar. What a refreshing change from the standard milk, raisins and brown sugar. The juice colored the oats a lovely red hue and all the fruit and nuts added great crunch and flavor. There was no need to add sugar, either. Yet another great variation on a theme. The coffee was strong but not bitter, and our vigilant server made sure our cups were kept full. If you like one of those fancy varieties available at that ubiquitous chain that shall remain nameless, fear not: Cafe on Fifth also serves espresso, latte, macchiato, cappuccino, chai and other beverages. We were too early for lunch, but the menu looks just as good as the breakfast lineup. There are sandwiches (served on freshly baked artisan bread), wraps, burgers, fish tacos, quiches salads and a couple of options for those following the paleo diet and plenty for vegetarians as well. Service throughout the meal was efficient and friendly. Coffee cups and water glasses remained full, and dishes didnt linger on the table once we were done with them. No one threw a check down on the table or gave us the impression that they were in a hurry for us to go. They left us to linger over our coffee and continued to offer refills for as long as we wished to stay. I saw the same thing happening at other tables as well. Whether you are in the mood for a full meal, a freshly baked sweet or something thats both healthy and delicious, Cafe on Fifth and its sibling, Delicious Raw, stand ready to serve any day of the week. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com The Cafe on Fifth (and Delicious Raw)>> Hours: 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily >> Reservations: No >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Breakfast, $6.95-$12.90; lunch, $8.95-$13.95 >> Beverages: Coffee, tea, soft drinks, champagne >> Seating: Tables indoors and outdoors along the sidewalk >> Specialties of the house: Breakfast and lunch fare (The Cafe); smoothies, juices and wellness shots (Delicious Raw) >> Volume: Low to moderate >> Parking: On the street >> Website: thecafeon5th.com and delraw. comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 821 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 430-6555 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYCafe on Fifth offers sidewalk tables as well as a spacious dining room.
