www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARYFor the GoodDo you get discouraged by bad news? By shootings here, bombings there and a variety of train wrecks everywhere else? I dont, because I have a powerful antidote. Each day I spend at least a few minutes hanging around individuals afflicted with a single prominent ambition: to do something For the Good. Even if I just hear about them I become afflicted, too to the exclusion of despair. And now youre going to become afflicted. Let me tell you first what happened to Toyetta Simpson. A year ago this week, Ms. Simpsons 5-year-old son, Andrew, was killed while playing in their living room by one of a flurry of bullets fired outside during a drive-by shooting. My wife, Amy Bennett Williams, put Ms. Simpsons harrowing story in print (Amys a senior writer for The News-Press in Fort Myers). One of the small details was this: When Ms. Simpson moved out of the rented house where her son died, she couldnt get her $500 security deposit back from the landlord because he made her pay to repair the bullet holes in the wall (that landlord is not For the Good). When Amys story about Ms. Simpsons life appeared on Sunday, a couple who lost their own child contacted my wife and made arrangements to get $500 into Ms. Simpsons hands. Its just not right, one of them told Amy. They asked to remain anonymous. Such human beings are everywhere around us, people like Jesse Aycock and Tommy Lee Cook in Lee County. Or Daphne Tull in Naples. Or Jolene Mowry in Punta Gorda. Consider Mr. Aycock, for example. An FGCU graduate born and raised in Bartow, he teaches physical education at The Alva School in Lee County, home of the Ramblers. His mother and sister are teachers, too. I know from watching that when Mr. Aycock finishes teaching kids all day, he wont just go home. Hell step in to coach them in soccer or congratulate them for academic awards. Hell praise them for trying when they lose the spelling bee. And when they have trouble at home, hell be there to steady them out. If he cant, hell find someone who can. And why? For the Good. Theres Daphne Tull in Naples, a techwhiz who devotes several computers set up in her home simply to take advantage of coupons coupons offering free or very reduced prices on food, clothing or other items people at St. Matthews House might need. She collects the bounty then delivers it to St. Matthews House, a destination for the hungry, the homeless, and the addicted. Why? For the Good. Tommy Lee Cook is a restaurateur, writer, musician and builder in east Lee. He owns the upscale Hut restaurant and event center, along with the World Famous Buckingham Blues Bar & Grill just down the road, where he and his band, The Wild Bunch, perform with the sometimes famous acts he books. But not on Saturday, Nov. 7, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Hut. That day, profits from the food, games, music and everything else will be handed to Special Equestrians, an outfit that changes the lives of people with physical or developmental disabilities by teaching them to ride horses. Mr. Cook, born a Virginian and now a die-hard Sunshine Stater, doesnt have to do that. So why does he? For the Good, of course. Jolene Mowry, meanwhile, organized the Back Pack Kidz, as she calls it, in 2010. Now, they provide backpacks and food for weekends to every struggling child in each of 10 schools in Punta Gorda, because nobody else was doing it, she explains. And she needs both money and volunteers. Which is where our antidote comes in, for you. By whipping out your checkbook or going online to help any of these extraordinary do-gooders, you will do good yourself. And when you do, bad news will amount to water off a ducks back. Here they are again: Jesse Aycock. Mr. Aycock has stepped up to organize the Rambler Run, his schools major annual effort to raise money for needed new equipment or a speaker who might change a childs life. Every student in every class, K to 8, will help by finding sponsors and running (or walking) for about 40 minutes, beginning each morning on Thursday, Oct. 22, and Friday, Oct. 23. Send a check (for Rambler Run) payable to: The Alva School, 21219 N. River Road, Alva, FL 33920. Daphne Tull.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 Hillarys gun-control non sequitursHillary Clinton has a new gun agenda that is the same as the old gun agenda. We all are appalled and heartsick over the countrys mass shootings, which arent any less shocking for their routine occurrence. But that doesnt mean we know how to stop them. The Pavlovian Democratic reaction is to offer a raft of familiar gun-control proposals, whether or not they have any bearing on mass shootings. Hillarys ideas are a testament to the essential sterility of the gun debate, no matter how much heat it generates. There is no way around the fact that marginal changes will do little or nothing to stop mass killers, while more sweeping changes even if they were practicable or wise run afoul of the Second Amendment. Among other things, Clinton wants to renew the assault-weapons ban, which we had for 10 years before it lapsed in 2004. To review: A so-called assault weapon is a semi-automatic rifle tricked out with frightening-looking cosmetic features. It is functionally indistinguishable from any other semi-automatic rifle. Assault weapons might play an outsized role in crime in Hollywood productions, but not in real life. Rifles generally arent used in shootings, let alone assault rifles. All rifles account for about 300 homicides a year. A Department of Justice-supported study of a possible renewal of the assault-weapons ban called its effect on violence perhaps too small for reliable measurement. Clinton wants to close the gun-show loophole, which is one of the great cliches and myths of the gun-control debate. The loophole doesnt actually exist. Federally licensed dealers have to run a background check or otherwise ascertain that a purchaser has passed one, even if the dealer is selling at a gun show. Private sellers dont have to conduct one whether or not they are selling at a gun show. The inordinate focus on gun shows might make sense if there were evidence of an epidemic of criminals using them to get their weapons. There isnt. A study in the journal Preventive Medicine of criminal offenders in Chicago found that most obtained their guns through personal connections. Rarely, the study said, is the proximate source either direct purchase from a gun store, or theft. Clinton also seeks to tighten up background checks. The problem is that very often the mass shooters dont have criminal records and havent otherwise been adjudicated. This makes it impossible to use background checks to stop them from buying guns. If it matters, none of this has anything to do with the Oregon shooting. The killer apparently used handguns to mercilessly shoot down his victims (although he also had a rifle, an AR-15). All of his 13 guns came from federally licensed dealers. He passed background checks. What Hillary has done is take a national tragedy and declared that it ought to catalyze us to pass a series of non sequiturs. Her proposals arent well-thought-out, because Democrats dont think when it comes to guns. They hold the same subrational belief that President Barack Obama expressed in his impassioned post-Oregon statement: that preventing mass shootings is easily within our power, with enough political will. Would that it were so. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION o f a s t a rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Breaking bad when stuff happensThere is new evidence of climate change and it is not just affecting the weather we normally expect this time of year. Instead of a slow descent into shorter days, we have entered into the twilight zone where the chaotic season of stuff happens dominates the atmospherics of daily life. Thank Jeb Bush for giving us an expression that so well captures our collective impotence in the context of events we are powerless to affect, like the weather or climate change, for that matter. Of course, Bush was speaking about neither. His use of the phrase was in reference to the futility of governmentmandated gun control, spoken in the wake of the mass shooting that occurred in Roseburg, Ore., earlier this month. It is the 294th mass shooting committed in just this year. It was another horrific event in an entirely unexpected place, nine killed and a dozen wounded, its victims robbed of life and innocence by unprovoked evil. The nation was still reeling when the former governors remark about stuff happens went viral. He took an onslaught of verbal fire for the fatalistic tone of his observation, to which he testily replied he was not talking about the Roseburg massacre. To clarify, he explained, A child drowns in a pool and the impulse is to pass a law that puts fencing around a pool. ... The cumulative effect of this is that in some cases, you dont solve the problem by passing the law and youre imposing on large numbers of people burdens that make it harder for our economy to grow, make it harder to protect liberty. So, allow me to paraphrase what he meant to say instead of stuff happens: Laws requiring pool owners to put a fence around their pool are burdensome. Fencing will not prevent children from drowning. Drownings happen. Laws requiring pools to be fenced take money out of the pockets of pool owners who could otherwise spend it to grow the economy. If government forces pool owners to put up fences, government is depriving the liberty of pool owners to risk children drowning. Therefore, government intervention to prevent children from needlessly drowning threatens the liberty of all Americans. Bush dug himself a deeper hole with this argument, the merits of which are astoundingly out of touch for someone who calls himself a Floridian. Every self-respecting pool owner in this state knows a swimming pool is a death magnet for kids and if they do not, they should not have a pool. Shame on Mr. Bush. Stuff happens is the weakest of justifications for the failure of responsibility to govern now prevalent among conservative lawmakers. In the ideology of the far right, in the circumstance of stuff happens, government initiative and/or intervention is a profitless pursuit, whether the issue is gun control, income inequality, healthcare, public education or Wall Street banditry. The resulting irony is a propensity toward governing not at all by those whose sworn duty it is to govern, as in the case of our state Legislature, and the U.S. Congress, all controlled by a conservative majority. The inventory of stuff happens among these lawmakers includes critical issues nowhere on their to-do list. They spend their time on priorities comparable to darning socks while the nation languishes on the edge of political implosion. They thwart the accomplishment of any legislation requiring bi-partisan support to succeed, which means nothing gets done unless special interests come calling to collect the pay-back they so richly deserve. In Florida, do-nothing governance denies access to health care for a million or more of the uninsured, undermines conservation and protection of the states environment, abandons societys most vulnerable to further demise, and puts our coastal communities at risk from sea level rise. This is not just passive government. It is breaking bad government. As if we needed further proof, a state House committee is moving forward with proposed legislation to allow 1.4 million Floridians with concealed weapon permits to carry their firearms openly, a bald intrusion and proliferation of deadly weapons in gun-free places so anyone capable of distinguishing a gun from a broom can flaunt their weapons publicly. Think about that. If the state Legislature passes the bill proposing this madness, we will have promulgated in Florida a do-it-yourself militia roaming the aisle at Publix, the happy hour at the pub and the hardware section in Walmart. God help you if you give offense to anyone by grabbing the last jar of mayo, or taking a barstool you presumed empty, or mistaking a survivalist for a store clerk. It could cost you your life. The radical right believes the price of liberty is our acceptance of a society so poisoned by the climate of fear that it dictates the necessity of carrying a gun every time we leave our homes. It is a horrific vision unworthy of this nation. Guns are millions of pools without fences, and far more deadly. Its time to fence them in. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

PROFILES IN PARADISEPerformer now makes shows happen behind the scenesAs the founder and president of Presentations Plus Inc., Naomi Buck seeks out and vets shows for her clients, negotiates artist fees and then supervises the programming and production team to massage the show through to performance day. She programs all presentations at ArtisNaples and also does work for BIG ARTS on Sanibel Island and for the soon-to-open Maryland Theatre for the Performing Arts in Annapolis. Prior to forming her company in 2013, she had worked for 12 years with Myra Daniels at the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts (now ArtisNaples). Naomis amazing journey in the performing arts began when she was a young girl. She grew up in the 1950s and s as an only child in Brooklyn, N.Y. Her family lived a simple but cultured life. Her parents subscribed to the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Ballet and the New York City Opera and included their daughter in them when she started high school. When she was 7, they took her to see The Music Man on Broadway, and shes been hooked on the theater ever since. Naomi (who qualified to skip grade eight and graduated from high school when she was just 16) fondly remembers her high school music teacher, Bella Tillis, who directed the mixed chorus and created a competition called Sing! for which students had to write, produce and perform a musical. Naomis team won the year she was the senior class Sing! commissioner. From age 16-19, she attended American University in Washington, D.C., as a music and theater major. At the end of her junior year, on a dare from her friends, she auditioned for the Broadway production of Hair. I was indeed the only white girl in the room who could carry a tune, plus they needed a redhead so they cast me, she says. She left university and never turned back. After touring with the National Tour of Hair for 14 months and Godspell for seven years, she earned roles on Broadway and off-Broadway and with other National Tours. She was touring with Grease when the company performed on Rikers Island. Why well never know, she allows. But the general population had the pleasure of seeing Treat Williams and Marilu Henner along with yours truly. She fell in love with technical theater and became a stage manager. Her last performing role was in The American Clock, then a new play by Arthur Miller. Working with him was truly one of the highlights of my career and one I will always treasure, she says. Miller was a prince. By the time she was 40, she was sick of touring. She loved working in New York, but the money was better on the road. She worked for a year for Troika Productions in Rockville, Md. before she went to work for what is now Broadway Across America as executive director of production. I was the protector of the backstage, making sure the architects didnt screw up the working parts of the stage house, she explains. In addition to all the ab ove, Na omi managed Siegfried & Roy in Japan and, her grand finale in stage managing, the opening ceremonies at the Lincoln Memorial for President Bill Clintons inauguration in 1993. In addition to her consulting company here on the Paradise Coast, she serves on the board of directors for Gulfshore Playhouse and is preparing to marry her longtime partner, John. Thats the greatest highlight of all! she says. bobHARDEN firstname.lastname@example.org Something your mother was always right about: She always said the only thing that will always separate the classes in America is the use of the English language. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A Broadway star. What would you be doing if you werent doing this? Id be a producer. Pet peeve: Liars. Guilty pleasures: Food and wine.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 Lawrence Center in Naples. Weve been seeing this for two years now. In 2011, the year Gov. Rick Scott shut down the pain centers commonly known as pill mills, heroin was the cause or a component in only 62 deaths across the state. By 2014, that number jumped to 156, with Orlando, West Palm Beach and Fort Myers topping out with the highest numbers of heroin overdoses. In fact, according to a 2013 annual report the Medical Examiners Commission submitted to Florida Department of Law Enforcement, deaths from the most commonly prescribed opiates seem to be stabilizing at pre-pill-mill era numbers (around 1,500 annually), while heroin deaths rise. Prior to the closure of pill mills, heroin was not a very popular drug in urban areas that had access to the prescription supply, says Paul Cassidy, chief operating officer of Access Recovery Solutions in Delray Beach and Panama City. What we typically saw was long-term, intravenous population with usage histories of 10 to 15 years. What were seeing now are folks who got introduced oftentimes through an injury whose medical care was not properly managed. What started as a legitimate use became illicit. As a result, the profile of people presenting themselves for treatment has changed in the last few years. Recovery centers are flooded with people who by most measures are upstanding citizens with functional families, good relationships and demanding jobs. Increasingly, patients are business owners, teachers and high functioning public personalities. Once their doctors stopped prescribing the Oxycontin theyd become dependent on, many of them changed to a widely available street narcotic like Dilaudid and eventually found themselves injecting heroin to stave off withdrawal. Its devastating to them because they didnt grow up to be those people, says Rosemary Boisvert, assistant vice president of residential care of Fort Myers Saluscare. A heroin addict is not some bum sitting out on the street. It crosses all barriers.Getting hooked is easier than you thinkJ. (Florida Weekly is not using his full name), a residential patient at Saluscare, had never envisioned himself as a heroin addict when he was a high school athlete in Fort Myers. After suffering a sportsrelated back injury as a teenager, he was quickly hooked on opiate painkillers and dealt with withdrawals on his parents couch when it was time to wean himself off the prescribed medication. J. was doing well until 2004, when he reinjured his back in a car accident and was again prescribed oxycodone. His sobriety deteriorated as rapidly as his doctor prescribed the pills. J. claims his physicians never approached him about his addiction. No doctor ever brought it up, not when youre paying $200 to fill a script, he says. They wanted you to come back as much as possible. J.s entire life eventually revolved around keeping his increasingly expensive prescription supplied at an average cost of more than $1,500 a month and travelling farther afield to fetch his meds after the crackdown on pill mills. On top of a learned fear of withdrawal, J. was actually still in pain from his injury. My doctor would walk in, pat my back a few times with his fingertips, sit down and print out my prescription, he says. They gave me plenty of medicine for the pain. As far as medical care, they didnt to anything to heal me. A Dilaudid script followed the oxycodone. J. found it was much easier to obtain for a while, but the drug became as scarce as his previous prescription. But he never bought his pills off the street. His doctor just continued writing prescriptions while J. desperately scrambled to fill them. Then he discovered heroin. It was like a wonder drug, he says. When I took heroin the first time, it took away the pain and I took a mental vacation from the problems in my life. Unlike his prescription drugs, heroin was cheap and accessible. I saved all month long just to fill my prescription, J. says. But with heroin, I could just fill it as needed. I got tired of taking time off work, saving all month for it, hoping to God that this place in Tampa has (the pills). The monotony got ridiculous. J. estimates he began using heroin about three years ago and says it caused his life to deteriorate further. His relationships with his two young daughters suffered the most, and his familys trust was gone. Earlier this summer, he detoxed on his own when he finally grew tired of the toll his addiction had taken on his life and relationships. I was fighting the devil for at least three weeks before I decided to come in here, he says about Saluscare. A lot of things started coming around just for the fact that I got clean. His health has rebounded and J. has gained 40 pounds. Right now, hes finding hope and stability at Saluscare and plans to take full advantage of the services it offers him. Im actually going to stay until they kick me out, he says, adding a halfway house might be his next stop. I feel like I need to stay in a safe environment. I need that structure. I need 90 days to six months to get acclimated back to life the right way. Life is already better for J. and it is likely to continue improving with effort and support. I feel great, he said. I feel healthy, I can breathe, I can sleep. I wake up on time. I feel like a normal human being.Trading pills for needlesMany people who havent suffered through opiate addiction underestimate how painful and potentially dangerous unsupervised withdrawal can be, making heroin the last stop for people whose pill supply has dried up. Symptoms such as vomiting, sweating, diarrhea, intense muscle aches, abdominal cramping, restlessness and more ensure that people who are addicted to opiates avoid detoxification, especially since it can last for days. While detoxification itself isnt usually fatal, the potential for self-harm and relapse increases when the patients withdrawal symptoms arent properly managed. You are so sick when youre dope sick, DLCs Ms. Dauphinais says. Likening it to the worst stomach flu, she adds, You cant do anything. You cant go to work like that, you cant take care of your kids. You think you are going to die. Think about if youre in that state and somebody asked if you would pay $50 to make that go away. As loose pills have become increasingly scarce since the 2011 crackdown, their street price has risen while heroins continues to fall. Heroin has become much more affordable for people who are conditioned to avoid withdrawal at all costs. If you dry up the prescription drugs or you make them so expensive that people who are dependent cant afford them, its not like they arent addicted anymore, Ms. Dauphinais explains. Your choice is either to die (from overdose), get help or keep using. Economics dictate that where theres demand, theres supply. In the past couple of years, Florida has seen a flood of Mexican-sourced heroin that has driven prices down. In Collier County, the price of the drug averages $15-20 for a standard hit at one-tenth of a gram. In comparison, a standard 30-milligram pill of Oxycontin or other opioid costs about $30. In the intervening time (since 2011), theres been a significant increase in Mexican-produced heroin, says Mr. Cassidy of Access Recovery Solutions in Delray Beach and Panama City. Because of the intervention of pill mills, the price of pharmaceuticals skyrocketed and heroin slid right in as a less expensive alternative that did the job Its much more available all over, and the quality has increased significantly. The increased purity of the drug, which in many areas is often laced with another opiate such as fentanyl, has contributed to the increased death rate among users who started with prescriptions. While prescription pills are pharmacologically regulated, heroin is sold in varying strengths and can be mixed with a variety of narcotics and fillers. For example, Lee County averaged only one or two deaths per year until 2012, but the number has steadily ticked up until it topped out at 25 in 2014. Throughout the state, occurrences of heroin in overdose deaths increased by 120 percent the first half of 2014 over the previous year. Heroin overdoses increased by 103 percent in the same time period.HEROINFrom page 1 DAUPHINAIS BOISVERT Prior to the closure of pill mills, heroin was not a very popular drug in urban areas that had access to the prescription supply ... What we typically saw was long-term, intravenous population with usage histories of 10 to 15 years. What were seeing now are folks who got introduced oftentimes through an injury whose medical care was not properly managed. What started as a legitimate use became illicit.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 NEWS A9 You dont know what youre getting, and thats why heroin is so much more dangerous, Ms. Dauphinais says. You may be used to doing three bags a day and a new dealer has a much stronger batch.Drugs to beat drugsDespite numbers that show a depressing upward trend in heroin abuse and deaths, a more encouraging trend is emerging. An increasing number of indigent and Medicaid patients are now able to access a form of medication-assisted treatment that, until recently, was prohibitively expensive for many of those who needed it. Vivitrol, a monthly shot of the widely used pill naltrexone, is now available to indigent heroin and opiate addicts who are patients in one of the state-approved recovery centers. For years, the shot which costs upward of $1,000 was available through the Department of Corrections for people with active court cases. The state recently expanded the program, through its Department of Children and Families, to accommodate increasing numbers of heroin patients who rely on state funding for recovery. Originally, the only way to get the funds was through the court system, says Linda McKinnon, president and CEO of Central Florida Behavioral Health Network, the agency that manages recovery centers in a 14-county area that includes the largest portion of heroin and opiate admissions in the state. If someone was in drug court, they could get the funding. Just recently, there were more dollars appropriated this year to help people who arent in the court system. Vivitrol is an extended-release, injectable form of naltrexone, a daily pill that doctors have used since the 1990s to erase addicts pleasure response to opiates and quickly extinguish cravings. For many people in recovery, the beauty of Vivitrol is in its monthly administration. Requiring patients to report to a clinic for the shot eliminates the need for them to take a pill at home every day in order to overcome biologically induced cravings. Compliance rates (with daily naltrexone) are low, as they are with anything, Ms. Dauphinais says. You cant even get people to take their blood pressure medicine properly. Thats a notorious medical conundrum people dont even want to take an antibiotic for seven days. Unlike a medication like Antabuse, which makes people who abuse alcohol violently ill when they have a drink, naltrexone is an opioid antagonist that literally blocks the brains pleasure response. If a patient suffers a relapse and injects heroin or takes an opiate pill, cravings are quickly extinguished because the brains reward center hasnt been gratified as it was in the past. Doctors have also found naltrexone, and by extension Vivitrol, to be helpful to patients struggling with alcohol abuse. The American Society of Addiction Medicine defines addiction as a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry ... (that) leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. When paired with a traditional treatment plan that includes behavioral and cognitive therapy, Vivitrol can buy patients mental space to concentrate on their recovery and reshape their brain away from its addictive patterns. When youre not getting pleasure from using, it creates a space for you to really get some sustained sobriety, and thats what you need, Ms. Dauphinais says. Were always overlaying Vivitrol and therapy together. Its really just an additional service were providing. There are still ways we talk about managing cravings. Weve just added another layer. Experts are also quick to point out the shot is not a miracle drug that vanishes addiction its one component in a long recovery process that requires patient commitment. Clinicians anticipate that patients could use Vivitrol for a year or more, so they are required to have undergone detoxification, remain opiate-free for 14 days, have a physical and meet with a center physician once a month, all while being consistently engaged in a step-down program that often includes group therapy and counseling. Not every patient is jumping up and down to take Vivitrol, says Dr. Katina Matthews, chief medical officer at Charlotte Behavioral Healthcare in Punta Gorda. They have to be at a certain point in that treatment process to be willing to take an injection and be of the belief they dont want to take drugs anymore. Once theyre on board with that, they think its wonderful.The trouble with medicineFlorida currently has 26 recovery centers approved to use state funds for Vivitrol, but many have relatively small programs or have not started administering the medication at all. Some addiction experts dont trust the drug to provide the promised solutions. Although Saluscare in Fort Myers is an approved provider, administrators have decided not to distribute Vivitrol shots to their patients. Because it is possible to overcome the block the medication imposes on opiates, the center is concerned patients could inadvertently overdose while trying to scale that wall. The problem is that we are dealing with really hardcore addicts, Saluscares Ms. Boisvert says. If they start taking that opioid blocker, the chances are theyll take more to try and overcome it. Thats almost instant death, and they wont realize it. Saluscare only uses medically assisted treatment during the detoxification process, and its counselors and doctors prefer to focus on total abstinence, she adds. Its still open for discussion, and were still trying to see whats right for the agency, she says. Our goal is total abstinence, and yet it is very appropriate for some people to do that (Vivitrol). Its just not always the most appropriate alternative. If youre going to quit, lets quit and we will do anything we can to help you sustain your sobriety. Ms. Boisvert is also skeptical about the high cost of the shot and the state of Floridas willingness to continue funding the program. At about $1,000 a month, Vivitrol can be a costly crutch if the money runs out. If a person needs a blocker to keep them psychologically from using, thats a very expensive route to go, she says. How long is the state willing to do that, and are they going to do it long enough that patients decide they cant quit without it? Instead, Ms. Boisvert would like to expand access to recovery services for patients who are uninsured or unable to pay. Saluscare is the only center in Lee County that takes indigent or Medicaid patients. Of its 46 beds in two adult residential units, 25 are covered by the state or county, and paying patients take the remaining 21. People in recovery, she says, usually choose to wait until a bed in their community opens, where they have access to their support networks, instead of relocating to an available bed across the state. Both Saluscare and David Lawrence Center in Naples have wait lists, as do most state-subsidized centers. Half of our beds are state subsidized, half are not, Ms. Dauphinais says. There are challenges to the funding available, and we spend it all before the end of the year, every year. We fund more patients than we are funded for, but we keep doing it anyway. Pregnant women with opiate addictions should be priority for greater resources, says Ms. Boisvert, particularly in Lee County where she says greater numbers sought help. Because expectant and post-partum mothers need specialized recovery services after Saluscare safely detoxes them, the center has to send them to Sarasota so they can stay with their children after birth and through the recovery process. What the state can do to help us is find a place where women can stay with their kids or stay with their newborns, she said. We dont have that here, and they need that bonding with their infant. Government-funded or supported services are helping centers expand the criteria for people to avail themselves of recovery help, including access to medically assisted treatment, through a few avenues, and many specialists hope the trend continues. I think the state has been very responsible for supporting DCF and the Department of Corrections, which have worked very closely with providers, with the federal government and pharmaceutical companies to make available evidence-based interventions, says Mr. Cassidy of Access Recovery Solutions. There are a lot of good things that are also going on with the Affordable Care Act to open up doors for treatment. The most important message for opiate and heroin addicts, however, is that help is available and new treatments are becoming more accessible, Ms. Dauphinais stresses. If you have anxiety or depression, Prozac alone isnt enough. But if it will help, by all means, take it. There are new interventions to help this disease and its not about willpower or moral power, she said. Number one, I hope that it brings hope. MCKINNON I saved all month long just to fill my prescription ... But with heroin, I could just fill it as needed. I got tired of taking time off work, saving all month for it, hoping to God that this place in Tampa has (the pills). The monotony got ridiculous.

Let Smile the traveling plover bring a grin to your face BY DAVE ADDISONSpecial to Florida WeeklyIve gas-bagged about this little bird before, so this is mostly for new arrivals; however, it is a continuing story. I first noticed this color-banded semipalmated plover (SEPL) in September 2010 and since then have seen it regularly on Hideaway Beach on Marco Island and on the Sand Dollar Island spit of the Big Marco Pass Critical Wildlife Area, typically around the 15th of April and the 15th of September. Obviously, this little guy possesses quite the biological clock. It was one of eight SEPLs that were color-banded at their nesting grounds on Fish Island in the MacKenzie River Delta in Canadas Northwest Territories in late June 2010 by a team of Canadian wildlife biologists. They named it Smile. As the crow flies, Fish Island is roughly 3,600 miles from Marco Island. SEPLs breed annually, which means this bird makes a 7,200-mile round trip each year. I last saw it in April 2015, so its made five circuits since 2010. Do the math and the numbers get pretty impressive, but thats the way of nearly all migratory shorebirds. They live on the wind. Also keep in mind that SEPLs weigh about 2 ounces, are a little over 7 inches long and have a wingspan of around 19 inches. The longest known life span of any SEPL is a 9.2 years. When this bird was banded, it was on a nest that contained four eggs, so this individual is at least 6 years old and counting. When I do bird surveys, I nearly always take my camera and a fancy long lens. The entire mess weighs a ton, but its worth the effort. When I see a banded bird, I can photograph it and enlarge the image so I can better discern the color patterns and read the band numbers if they are present. The accompanying photos of Smile are a sequence that proves people are not the only species whose feet periodically turn to clay. After being carefully pulled from the sand, an exceptionally long worm somehow slipped from Smiles beak, only to be nabbed again before it hit the sand. I got the sequence completely by accident and got a good laugh out of it when I downloaded the images. When I contacted the banders about seeing Smile again last April, they told me they had moved their operation to the high Arctic at Polar Bear Pass National Wildlife Area, Bathurst Island, Nunavut, where they have started color banding black-bellied plovers and tracking them with solar PITs. Some of these birds have migrated to Cuba, so theres a remote chance of seeing one that might stop in south Florida to refuel. The tracks are really cool and can be found at seaturtle.org/ tracking/index. Next time you head to the beach, pay attention to the legs of the birds you encounter, especially plovers, American oystercatchers, white pelicans, terns and gulls. If you see color bands, record what color bands are on which legs and the location where you saw the bird. A bander somewhere will be really happy. Also check the legs of dead birds (usually terns, gulls and pelicans) for numbered, metal bands used by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (the nine-number sequence is so small you need a spotting scope to read them). Color-banded red knots also show up seasonally this time of year and in the spring, with the numbers imbedded in small flags. The light green bands are from north Florida. A red flag indicates the bird was banded in Chile. If you see one of those flags, buy yourself a good beer. Moonbird (B95) is a famous red knot, as is Wisdom the Laysan albatross, the worlds oldest known banded wild bird. First banded in 1956 at Midway Atoll, Wisdom is still laying eggs. Dave Addison is a staff biologist at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. DAVE ADDISON / COURTESY PHOTOS This sequence of photos shows the early bird getting the worm, losing the worm and then successfully getting it back.

Sales of childrens book will help protect Marcos burrowing owlsMarco Island resident Roseanne Pawelec is donating $1 from every sale of her new childrens book, Ollie Finds a New Home, to a fund to help protect Marcos burrowing owls. As it takes children on a journey with Ollie the burrowing owl and his family as they search for a new underground home, the book addresses the trauma of moving for young children and offers positive life lessons about change. I feel privileged to have a small part in helping to protect one of Marcos most cherished natural attractions, Ms. Pawelec says. Working with the Community Foundation of Collier County, the author formed the Burrowing Owl Protection Fund of Marco Island. Donations into the fund will be used to assist the city and its Owl Prowl volunteers in erecting signage near owl burrows and maintaining the rope-and-stick fencing around them. The petite, federally protected owls are less than 12 inches tall, have long legs and a short tail, are mostly brown with numerous white or tan spots and have white eyebrows just above bright yellow eyes. We are always happy to get the word out on this wonderful little owl and we are always scrambling for supplies to post new burrows, Owl Prowl volunteer Jean Hall says. The burrowing owl population in Marco Island has grown significantly in recent years. New statistics from the city show that the number of burrowing owls on the island has increased from 326 in 2012 to 471 in 2015. The statistics also indicate that, in the last year alone, the number of active burrows has risen from 83 in 2014 to 114 in 2015. Ollie Finds a New Home is illustrated by Sue Lynn Cotton. It can be purchased at Sunshine Booksellers on Marco Island or online at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and Booksamillion.com.

Though he has never been charged with a crime, he roams freely (and apparently joyously) around shortskirted and swimsuit-clad gals while himself often wearing only a thong and bearing a Free Hugs and Kisses sign. Mr. Zaitzeffs websites extol public nudity, wrote the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and explain, for example, that a woman who angles her bod to offer a view of side boob is fair game for his camera. Mr. Zaitzeffs complaint that the law criminalizes photography of a persons intimate areas (clothed or not) without explicit permission is distressing him.Democracy bluesRandy Richardson, 42, vying unopposed for the Riceville, Iowa, school board (having agreed to run just because he has two kids in school) failed to get any votes at all as even he was too busy on election day (Sept. 8) to make it to the polls (nor were there any writeins). To resolve the 0-0 result, the other board members simply appointed Mr. Richardson to the office. Riceville, near the Minnesota border, is a big-time farming community, and registered voters queried by The Des Moines Register said they just had too much fieldwork to do that day.Medical marvelsResearchers recently came upon a small community (not named) in the Dominican Republic with an unusual incidence of adolescent boys having spent the first decade or so of their lives as girls because their penises and testes did not appear until puberty. A September BBC News dispatch referred to the boys as Guevedoces and credited the community for alerting researchers, who ultimately developed a drug to replace the culprit enzyme whose absence was causing the problem. (The full shot of testosterone that should have been delivered in the mothers womb was not arriving until puberty.)Leading economic indicatorsThe serpentine queue extended for blocks in September in Lucknow, India, after the state government of Uttar Pradesh announced 368 job openings (almost all menial) eventually resulting in about 2.3 million applications, 200,000 from people with advanced degrees (even though the $240/month positions required only a fifth-grade education, according to an Associated Press dispatch). About 13 million young people enter Indias job market each year.New world order At a September convention on ethical issues involving computers, a researcher at Britains De Montfort University decried the development of devices that might permit human-robot sex. Though no human would be victimized, the researcher warned that such machines (some already in service) will exacerbate existing power imbalances between men and women and pave the way for more human exploitation. One critic challenged, offering that such robots would be no more demeaning to women than, say, vibrators. However, the researcher ominously warned that there may someday be robots resembling children, marketed for sex.

It sponsors National Feral Cat Day on Oct. 16, helping to promote TNR programs around the country. Some Southwest Florida counties, cities and nonprofits are now offering free or low-cost TNR services for residents. Bonita Springs partners with Lee County Domestic Animal Services and a local veterinarian to provide free TNR services for residents who live in the city. The program was originally born several years ago out of the realization that just rounding these things up and euthanizing them wasnt the most cost effective (way) to try to manage the nuisance conditions of feral cats, said Frank Cassidy, director of neighborhood services in Bonita. TNR is more effective in controlling cat colonies than euthanasia, Ms. Robinson said, because killing the cats does not stop the reproduction. It creates a vacuum effect. More cats move into that area. So this is a repeated cycle that goes on and on. And the ones moving in are reproducing. Theyre not spayed or neutered and theyre not vaccinated. She calls euthanizing feral cats not only cruel, but a waste of taxpayer dollars. With TNR programs, breeding begins to decline immediately, and fighting, yowling and urine marking dies down since the cats are not mating. TNR entails trapping a cat in a cage and spaying or neutering the animal. The tip of the cats left ear is snipped off; the universal sign for a fixed feral cat. They are also vaccinated for rabies and returned, ideally back to the same place where they were found. Heres how it works in different counties.Charlotte TNRCharlotte County Animal Control contracts with the nonprofit Animal Welfare League to provide shelter services and handle feral cats. The Welfare League last year committed to a TNR program instead of euthanization. We believe in TNR, said Executive Director Sharon Thomas. We think its the most human approach to managing and caring for community cats and stabilizing the colonies. The league spays or neuters and returns about 10 to 20 feral cats every month, Ms. Thomas said. She also points out a nonprofit group called Community Cats of Charlotte, which organizes volunteer trappers and vets for its own TNR program, which began in 2013. The group returned more than 700 community cats last year to their colonies, said Community Cats of Charlotte President Michelle Adams. The organization runs on grants and donations. It was created to let cats lead a normal life outside, she said. The whole point is to stop the breeding, stop the fighting, let em live. When people call with complaints, volunteer trappers such as Ms. Adams will show up with traps and do the work themselves or show people how to use them. The easiest way to learn how to use the traps is on YouTube, Ms. Adams said. Once a month, cats and volunteer vets are rounded up for 50 or 60 surgeries and vaccinations in one day before the cats are returned to their colonies. Contact Community Cats of Charlotte at communitycatsofcharlotte.org or call (941) 875-3293. More information on the Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County: awlshelter.org or call 62 5-6720. Lee County and Bonita Springs TNRLee County Domestic Animal Services started a TNR program in 2009 that is free for residents. With a refundable deposit, people borrow the traps to use themselves. Then DAS takes appointments for the surgical procedures. But the program has been so popular that they cant keep up between just two vets; the schedule usually fills up in just hours. The program has been effective especially in small areas, said Andrea Rothwell, a manager at Lee DAS. When we have a trapper who focuses on one location, lets say she does a fourblock radius, were able to have an impact in that small of an area, Ms. Rothwell said. Now were kind of just figuring out how to do that on a bigger scale. Last year, Lee County DAS spayed or neutered and returned 2,044 cats. We couldnt begin to sterilize all the feral cats in Lee County by ourselves, said spokesperson Ria Brown. We have a program but other people really need to get on board kind of like Bonita (Springs) is doing. TNR may have an immediate effect on naughty feral cat behavior. But when it comes to overall population control, Mr. Cassidy of Bonita Springs said, I think the neuter release program will have a more positive effect over the long term than the euthanizing program, but again it takes time. Lees service is free but accepts donations to offset costs. For more information visit leegov.com/animalservices/vetservices/spayneuter/tnr.

Collier TNRCollier County Domestic Animal Services evaluates feral cats when they are brought to its shelter. Some cats are put up for adoption while others are euthanized. Residents can bring a stray to the nonprofit Naples Cat Alliance, a shelter that coordinates TNR services for free or low cost, about $45, said Cat Alliance President Megan Sorbara. And through an agreement with the county, any cat brought in to DAS that is already ear tipped will be rereleased or put up for adoption if friendly. The TNR program has proved popular and Cat Alliance needs volunteers and residents to do some of the trapping themselves. People think, remove them and the problem will go away. Well, it wont, Ms. Sorbara said. Its better to have a stabilized colony where theyre not reproducing and theyre just hanging out, and theyre usually pretty mellow at that point. Cat Alliances TNR program was formed in 2008. Prior to that, it was illegal to release feral cats or feed them in Collier County. Initially, within the first two years of it being implemented, there was a decrease of feral cat intake to DAS by 24 percent, Ms. Sorbara said. And then since 2007, which was the year before TNR, to 2014 the reduction in euthanasia of cats in general at DAS is down 52 percent.

Orr, OD, MD, MD, OD, OD SWFLEYE.COM CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT! BEHIND THE WHEELNew Nissan Murano is the anti-square crossoverThe 2015 Murano debuts the third generation for Nissans look-at-me crossover. Its a truly bold move to try and be this distinctive in the mainstream world of midsize vehicles, but thats nothing new for this one. Over the last dozen years the Murano has had arguably the most distinguished face in its class, and now the new version makes sure that every surface leaves a lasting impression. But now that close competitors like Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe have been recently restyled into handsomely premium vehicles, is there any room for the wild one in this new bunch? Nissan really wanted to challenge its metal workers when it came to stamping out parts for the new Murano. Theres an inward slope on the hood for an aggressive furrowed brow, and then it rises up in the middle for the impression of a power bulge. The profile has a deep ridge that cuts a Nike-style swoosh in the doorline with hints of this repeated in the headlights and taillights. The roof uses well-placed chrome and a blackedout c-pillar to create the illusion that it is floating above the rear end. In total, Nissan is doing things with sheet metal we would have never imagined a few decades ago. Of course, not everyone wants to drive a rolling marvel, but this is a calculated risk. Nissan is not too afraid to alienate moderate consumers because the companys Pathfinder crossover/SUV picks up the slack. The two vehicles share an assembly line in Mississippi, and both utilize the same motor. The Pathfinder is slightly larger, and its more conventional styling allows for a squared-off style that leads to more interior room and space for a third row bench. Limiting the Muranos seating to two rows and five people total feels very deliberate. While this is a fine car to make the school drop off run, the adultsized legroom in the rear suggests Nissan is looking out for an older crowd, too. In fact, not only are the front seats designed according to Nissans fatigue-reducing Zero Gravity standards, but the outboard rear ones also have this mature level of comfort. From the drivers seat the Murano feels pretty loaded. The $29,560 base S model version still gets features such as dual zone automatic climate control and a backup camera. Upgrade to our $37K mid-level SL model and some interesting standard features are added like a ninespeaker Bose stereo, leather seats, power liftgate, and a very useful Around View monitor. This stitches together video from the front, rear and door mirror cameras to give a real-time birds eye view of the car. While all the style and technology are designed to be the hallmarks of this crossover, what might be most impressive is the ride. The Murano genuinely feels tall and wide, which is why people choose these over station wagons. But the steering is crisp and sharp, more like the related Maxima sports sedan. The suspension keeps this car-like feel by not allowing too much body roll when taking turns at speed. The only powerplant available is a 260 hp 3.5-liter V6. It is mated to only one transmission, the CVT. Continuous variable gearboxes are not ideal for an all-out sports car, but its unbroken smooth delivery is fine for relaxed crossover duty. In total, the Murano is powerful, quick, and comfortable, but it is not exactly the BMW X5. Still, the $14,000 savings of our loaded tester over the Germans starting price certainly eases the pain. Where the Murano really is in its element is on the long road trips. We had the optional panoramic sunroof that gives all passengers a direct view of the sky. It is part of a $2,260 technology package that also includes radar-assisted cruise control and collision warning. No matter the trim level or drivetrain (front-wheel driver or optional all-wheel), the Murano and its 19-gallon fuel tank can achieve a bladder-busting 450 miles in-between fill-ups. The new Nissan Murano is styled to look like the wild child, but what no one is noticing is that this punk rocker is wearing sensible shoes. It is adult fun, but the kids fit, too. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 NIH to expand its research into preventing breast cancer NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHFocusing on prevention, a new phase of the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program is being launched at the National Institutes of Health. Grant-funded researchers will work across scientific disciplines, involve new racially and ethnically diverse communities and expand the study of risk factors that precede breast cancer, such as breast density. These new directions reflect recommendations made by the Interagency Breast Cancer Environmental Research Coordinating Committee in 2013. IBCERCC was congressionally mandated to review the state of the science around breast cancer and environmental influences by the Breast Cancer and Environmental Research Act. Recommendations included prioritizing prevention, involving transdisciplinary research teams, engaging public stakeholders, collaborating across federal agencies and communicating the science to the public. This broadened research focus will add to the growing knowledge of environmental and genetic factors that may influence breast cancer risk across the lifespan. The six new BCERP projects, plus a new coordinating center promoting cross-project collaboration, are jointly funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Cancer Institute. All projects involve strong partnerships between researchers and organizations focused on breast cancer prevention or environmental health. The new research will be conducted at the following institutions n Brigham and Womens Hospital, Boston n City of Hope/Beckman Research Institute, Duarte, Cali. n Columbia University, New York City n Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, Washington, D.C. n Michigan State University, Lansing n University of Massachusetts, Amherst n University of Wisconsin-Madison (coordinating center) The beauty of this research is that scientific discoveries and community observations inform each other, in order to dive deeper into the complex causes of breast cancer, Gwen Collman, Ph.D., director of NIEHS Division of Extramural Research and Training, says. The focus on minority and socio-economically disadvantaged women is an important step in addressing disparities in breast cancer outc omes. Although African-American women are diagnosed with breast cancer less often than white women, more aggressive cancers and breast cancer deaths are more common among African-American women. Another new direction for BCERP is research on the role of breast density as a possible intermediate risk factor for breast cancer. Dense breast tissue is one of the most common risk factors for breast cancer. Identifying links between environmental exposures and high breast density could provide new insights into prevention. These priorities reflect our continued commitment to breast cancer prevention, says Caroline Dilworth, Ph.D., BCERP program lead at NIEHS. Our goal is to build on the science weve been funding for more than a decade, while also being responsive to the expert recommendations of the IBCERCC report. NIEHS supports research to understand the effects of the environment on human health and is part of NIH. For more information on environmental health topics, visit niehs.nih.gov. The National Cancer Institute leads the National Cancer Program and the NIHs efforts to reduce the prevalence of cancer and improve the lives of cancer patients and their families, through research into prevention and cancer biology, the development of new interventions and the training and mentoring of new researchers. For more information about cancer, call NCIs cancer information service at (800) 4-CANCER or visit cancer.gov. A component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, NIH includes 27 institutes and centers. It is the primary federal agency conducting and supporting basic, clinical and translational medical research, and is investigating the causes, treatments and cures for both common and rare diseases. For more information about NIH and its programs, visit nih.gov. Support group starts for those facing medical challengesThe Mental Health Association of Southwest Florida is starting a free, bi-monthly support group for people who are struggling with medical challenges. The first meeting is from 7-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, at MHASWFL headquarters, 2335 Tamiami Trail N. in Naples. Victoria Elkins, a licensed clinical social worker and a member of the NCH Bioethics Committee, will facilitate the session. Being diagnosed with a challenging medical condition can be a scary and confusing time. The goal of the support group is to help members understand and process their treatment options so they will become empowered to voice their decisions with their family and treatment team. Those who take an active role in their treatment often express a higher level of satisfaction with their care and experience less emotional distress, Ms. Elkins explains. For more information about the new group, call 261-5405 or visit mhaswfl. org.

I was reminded of the learning attributes of NCH recently when I observed from the back of the Telford Auditorium as 53 of our registered nurses voluntarily participated in a two-day, 16-hour course to become stroke certified registered nurses. Course objectives included identifying different types of strokes and following guidelines for managing strokes, performing advanced neurological assessments for stroke patients and teaching patients and family about prevention and recognition of strokes. It is so much better to recognize the signs (physical abnormalities) and symptoms (feelings) to avoid having a stroke, as opposed to being treated for a stroke. The risk of a stroke doubles for each successful decade after age 55. Age is one risk that cannot be modified; high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, elevated lipids (fats in your blood), cardiovascular disease, carotid stenosis (narrowing of the blood vessels to the brain) and an irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) all increase risk and are somewhat modifiable. African-Americans, Hispanics and Asian groups have a higher risk and worse outcomes than Caucasians. Genetics also matter, as there is a higher risk when ones parents have had strokes. Most important, however, quickly recognizing that you or a loved one is having a stroke can save the brain, decrease disability and hasten recovery. Classic signs of stroke include: Sudden numbness or weakness of face, arm or leg. Sudden severe headache and feeling sick to your stomach with the headache. Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes. Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding. Sudden trouble walking, dizziness or loss of balance or coordination. n Loss of consciousness or confusion. The Agency for Healthcare Administration has designated NCH a Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center. This past year, we doubled the number of patients we care for with stroke or stroke-like symptoms. Led by Drs. Jeff McCartney and Mazen AbuAwad and RNs Brenda Hartmann Diana Trupiano, our stroke team is available 24/7. Patients with symptoms are assessed in the ER in less than nine minutes, on average, and are treated with clot-busting medicine when appropriate in about 45 minutes. Results are regularly excellent. Patients have the option of rehabilitation in the accredited stroke specialty program at the Brookdale on our North Naples campus, where they receive daily medical management and intensive therapy supervised by Drs. David Pitts and Rebecca Smith. Each year, strokes kill 130,000 Americans. We all should know the signs and avoid the risk factors. If treatment is necessary, NCH can be trusted to provide the necessary care. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.research, prevention and treatment. Presenters include: Dr. Mark Atkinson, the American Diabetes Association Eminent Scholar for Diabetes Research and author of more than 375 articles on Type 1 Diabetes; Dr. Andreas Pfutzner, a researcher working with the Healthcare on a groundbreaking early-detection process for diabetes; Dr. Scott Needle of the Healthcare Network and Dr. Amy Chappell.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIf youre buying a puppy for the first time, or if it has been a few years since you last acquired one, you might be unsure of where to begin. A lot has changed in the puppy-purchasing world in the past decade. Whether you are looking for a purebred pup, a designer dog or one from a shelter, you are no longer limited to your local classifieds, breeders, shelters or rescue groups. You may see available pups through social media, craigslist, Petfinder.com, online pet stores or fliers at your veterinary clinic or pet-supply store, to name just a few. What hasnt changed is the importance of asking the right questions before you plunk down hundreds or thousands of dollars for a puppy who will, in a perfect world, live with you for the next 10-plus years. Before you fall in love with the first cute pup you see (or even better, before you look at puppies), get good answers to the following questions. What are the potential genetic or developmental problems that can affect this breed or crossbreed, and what is the incidence of these problems in your lines? What are the strong and weak points of the health, temperament and conformation of the parents, grandparents and great-grandparents? A reputable breeder will answer these questions honestly and thoroughly. Be doubtful of breeders who claim their dogs dont have any problems. That may be because they dont test for them. What health clearances do the puppies parents have? Whether youre buying a purebred or a hybrid (designer) pup, the breeders should be able to show you up-to-date proof that both parents are free of hereditary ailments. Depending on the breed or cross, these may include but are not limited to Orthopedic Foundation for Animals or PennHIP hip clearances; and OFA elbow, knee, eye, thyroid or heart clearances. Check the Canine Health Information Center (caninehealthinfo.org) to find out which clearances your breed should have. If youre buying a hybrid (one breed crossed to another breed), the breeder should have appropriate clearances for each breed. Hip, elbow and knee clearances are issued only once in a dogs life, but eye, heart and thyroid exams should be performed annually. How old are the parents? Health clearances are not issued to dogs younger than 2 years old because those dogs are not yet fully mature and health problems may not be apparent. Do you guarantee a puppys health? A breeder who is confident in the health of her dogs will offer a guarantee against genetic defects for up to two years after the puppy is purchased. With exceptions such as epilepsy, which usually appears later in life, genetic problems typically surface by the time a dog is 2 years old. How do you socialize your puppies? Choose puppies raised in a home with plenty of human interaction. They will be more confident and adaptable throughout life. What does your sales contract include? Look for the following basics: the sale price; the pups birthdate and parents names; details of health guarantees; return policy; and any breeding restrictions, spay/neuter requirements or other agreements related to the sale. A great sales contract states that the breeder will take the dog back at any time in his life and that the breeder has first right to the dog or will provide assistance in placement in any situation in which you cannot keep him, such as a divorce, illness or death. Making the right match when selecting a breeder and puppy calls for strong research and interviewing skills and plenty of patience to wait for the right one, but the effort pays off in puppy love for life. Cuteness and convenience of purchase arent the only considerations when looking for a puppy.

E. * * * EC13005050 THE DIVA DIARIESForget hayrides and pumpkin patches; its wedding season in Southwest FloridaHere in Southwest Florida its officially the season of l ove, champagne toasts, doing the Electric Slide and deciding between the steak or the snapper. Its wedding season in our little corner of paradise, and I couldnt be more thrilled, as no one loves a wedding more than moi. If we lived almost anywhere else in America, wedding season would be more traditional and happen in June. Thankfully, nobody in their right mind schedules their nuptials around here in June, which is just as bad as August in the humidity and thunderstorm department. Here in the subtropics, October is the start of wedding season (even though the weather can still be quite warm and humid). In fact, I attended one this past Saturday, and I have two more on my calendar toward the end of the month. You would think that after nearly five months of miserable heat, things would finally cool off by the time October arrives, but there are no guarantees. When Todd and I married nine years ago in September, it resulted in an album of wedding photos where everyone is glistening with perspiration (when it comes to a lovely wedding, I hate to say sweating their a*%#s off) and our nuptials and reception were indoors in the air conditioning. As a guest at the absolutely exquisite Cindy StarnesVictor OConnor union last weekend, I was prepared with a lovely, pink hand fan that matched my frock and a purse-sized container of Evian facial spray. In fact, the wedding planner asked to borrow both to help keep the beautiful bride comfortable while photos were taken outdoors (where the afternoon temperature peaked at around 90 degrees). For those of you are lucky enough to share in a loving couples special day this month, here are few other ways besides fans and Evian that can make you a good guest. Stick to the gift registry. Trust me, couples fret like mad trying to put those registries together and make them accessible and affordable. And yet, many guests decide to go off the grid and shop on their own. Registries are easy and simple. Plus, your gift is delivered directly to the couples home and they dont have to haul a bunch of boxes and gift bags anywhere after a long night of dancing, drinking and merriment. Speaking of drinking, remember that while an open bar can be lots of fun, so can a glass of water between each celebratory beverage. I did not follow that rule this past weekend, which led to my treating fellow wedding guests (way toward the end of the night, believe me) to an interpretive dance to Journeys Dont Stop Believin. Im told a friend has video evidence on her iPhone. Im also told my performance was charming and entertaining, so que sera. Remember: All is fair in love war and in catching the bouquet. When bride Cindy tossed the bouquet last Saturday night, a plethora of single ladies did their best to catch it. But one friend who is around 6-foot-2 in heels may or may not have snagged the nosegay and, in a flurry of petals and squeals, made sure her friend (who has been living with her boyfriend for a couple of years or so) ended up catching it. And finally, the most important rule is to celebrate love and raise your champagne flute often, as I did for Cindy and Victor and will do later this month for Elliott and Sean and for Michael and Bill. Because while other parts of the country are doing hayrides and pumpkin patches, around here were doing weddings lots of weddings. And I love them. I do, I do, I do! Ciao for now, my lovelies!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGFigure out the right bank for youLiving in Punta Gorda, I hear a lot of conversations that start with, Remember the good old days when... I dont really understand those discussions. Was it better years ago without the Internet or iPhones? Without the opportunity to buy a Tesla with Insane Mode? And how good could days have been without fantasy football and NFL RedZone to watch it on? But there is one exception, in my opinion, where things were better in the old days and that is if you are an average person trying to navigate the banking system. Even though I am only 40 years old, I can still remember a time when banks really wanted a customer with a $5,000 checking account and maybe a small mortgage. I even recall my parents getting a toaster oven for opening a savings account with a $100 minimum deposit. Today, that customer will be considered not profitable by many of our financial institutions and will be treated accordingly ($3 account statement fee? .000001 percent interest? What?). So what can a typical person do if hes frustrated by his bank? Its all about picking the right bank for you. Although this may be a little simplistic, I will group banks into three broad categories and highlight what type of customer will probably have the best fit with each bank. The first is the traditional big bank. Examples of this are Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo or SunTrust. In full disclosure, I have worked for a number of these banks. My experience is that these banks focus most of their attention and programs on corporate customers and very wealthy individuals. So if your last name is Trump or you own several car dealerships, this is probably the bank for you. You will have access to a wide variety of experts in capital markets, investments, corporate finance and commercial lending. If you travel a lot or live in more than one geographical area (Im talking about you snowbirds), this also is probably a good choice of bank, as they will have branches all over the country or even the world. However, all of those branches and experts cost money and nothing in life is free. So for an average Joe, that means you probably will receive minimal interest on your deposit accounts and be charged a fee for almost anything. The second bank class is a community bank. An example of this is Calusa Bank here in Punta Gorda. These banks are much smaller than the first type of bank with probably just a couple of branches in one area. They will focus on attracting traditional retail customers and small businesses. To stand out from the larger financial institutions, they typically will pay a higher interest rate on deposits (and charge a lower rate on loans) and will offer a more personalized level of service. Their fee structure will also be less intense. On the flip side, they will not be able to offer more sophisticated services like Foreign Exchange or capital markets and you may even need to jump through a few hoops to execute foreign wire transfers or more complex banking transactions. But if you dont travel much for extended periods and are a bread-andbutter banking client, this may be a good choice for you. The final financial grouping is Internet banks. Ally bank, Synchrony Bank and First Internet Bank are Internet banks. These institutions do not have branches. You will do your banking through your smart phone, mail or ATMs. So if you have trouble figuring out how to open an attachment on your gmail account, this probably isnt the right fit for you. Or if you like the fact that the teller at your local bank branch knows your name, you should probably pick a different bank. But the benefit of Internet banks is that their cost structure is extremely low so they typically have the best deposit interest rates and lowest loan rates. They also most frequently have the lowest fees. But it can be a hassle to execute some routine banking transactions like making cash deposits or obtaining certified checks. So as you can see, there has never been a greater choice of banks for someone to choose from. The key is to decide what is important to you in your financial institution. Is having a branch on every corner the most crucial? Or is it high interest rates? Or the ability to obtain Japanese yen whenever you need it? Just remember that you really cant have everything. Not like in those good old days at all.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 create a better place to live and work. Introduced in March 2015, FutureMakers is among 75 metropolitan areas included in Lumina Foundations Community Partnership for Attainment, a national movement to increase the quality and competitiveness of Americas workforce. In Southwest Florida, retail, construction, business services, health care and consumer services are the top five employers, according to Brent Kettler, a data consultant for the FutureMakers Coalition. And they all have pressing needs to fill jobs with skilled employees now and in the next decade. The coalition has assembled Regional Action Teams and a Champions Team to create a cradle-to-career network supporting traditional students, adult learners, the unemployed and the underemployed in achieving degree and certification attainment. It is involving and learning from the areas largest employers. From a business standpoint, ensuring employers have a strong voice at the FutureMakers table is one component in realizing the transformation of the regions workforce and economy, said Tessa LeSage, director of social innovation and sustainability for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, which is serving as the coalitions anchor organization. We also want to help business leaders understand how they can directly influence the development and advancement of a versatile and highly-skilled regional workforce while helping meet immediate and long-term employment needs and promoting the ability to expand. Other Lumina partners have already discovered the importance of large businesses as role models for other companies, highlighting successful job shadowing, mentorship, internship and apprenticeship programs for students and employees. By working with educators and each other, larger businesses can share best practices and help guide the curriculum and career paths offered to kindergarten through high school students as well as technical and traditional college enrollees. As Southwest Floridas largest employer with 10,900 employees, Lee Memorial Health System offers extensive opportunities for employees to become nurses theres a shortage nationwide or pursue other fields of interest. Marilyn Felton, Lee Memorials education assistance and grant coordinator, estimates 60 to 70 percent of its eligible workforce are taking courses. Her department has a $1.2 million budget for educational assistance and has helped janitors, housekeepers and other entry-level and non-credentialed employees become nurses at no or minimal out-of-pocket expense. We continue to grow and I expect well increase the budget, Ms. Felton said. The systems tuition assistance provides up to $3,500 for fulland part-time employees pursuing associate, bachelors and masters degrees plus completion of licensed nurse practitioners programs. In-house classes are also geared to nurses so they dont have to travel and take time off work, Ms. Felton said. Tuition assistance includes a $2,500 annual benefit for employees pursuing an associate degree or bachelor of science in nursing. The rate jumps to $3,500 for masters programs in nursing, leadership and healthcare administration. Auxiliaries at various hospitals also award $500 to $1,800 education grants to employees and the general public and in 2015 distributed $266,000. At 50, Milton Housen, of Fort Myers, took advantage of Lee Memorials tuition reimbursement to become a registered nurse. Now 56, hes a year away from completing requirements as a nurse practitioner a clinician who can diagnose and treat health conditions while focusing on disease prevention and health management. Mr. Housen received annual grants and tuition assistance that covered most of his education expenses. Lee Memorials partnership with Florida SouthWestern State College allowed him to earn his initial degree without any cost. I would never have been able do this without the hospitals assistance, Mr. Housen said. Mr. Swan of Gartner would like to establish a similar collaboration with Florida Gulf Coast University to aid in preparing more students for sales careers. From an employer standpoint, FutureMakers is absolutely needed for companies like ours to find high-quality individuals in the region, he said. Im looking for entry-level salespeople for first to third jobs out of college. Right now hes filling account executive vacancies with recruits from outside the region, many of them enrolled in newly introduced professional sales classes offered at three Florida colleges. Hes discussing opportunities with Wilson Bradshaw, president of FGCU, to offer a similar program at the Estero campus. Two years ago I would have said personality was the best attribute for an account executive, Mr. Swan said. Now there are 100 colleges in the U.S. offering professional selling certificates and degrees and Im seeing a huge benefit to hiring graduates from these programs. Theyre exposed in the classroom to selling, theory and already know whether or not they like sales. Gartners sales division expects to convert 30 of its 43 paid interns into jobs. The company also offers opportunities for quick advancement. Within two years, account executives can be promoted and make very good money, said Mr. Swan. I want to promote from within because a current employee is always more effective than a new hire. Arthrex also offers internships and recently transitioned two interns to fulltime positions in its marketing and human relations departments. The two women are among the millennial generation, ages 18 years to early 30s who will account for 75 percent of the workforce during the next decade. Also rated by Fortune among the 100 Best Companies to Work For, Arthrex offers several in-house programs to identify leaders and advance quality employees. Its four-year on-the-job apprentice program, started in 2010 to fill a lingering void in its operations, pays apprentices while preparing them for national certification as journeymen/machinists. I was working in construction and had really lost interest in it, said Jeffrey Bentley who was one of the programs pioneers. This was an opportunity to change careers. I was starting a family and needed income while getting an education to better myself. Mr. Bentley now works in the companys prototype department as part of the creative team determining the machine processes needed to produce a new product. Mike Boose, director of human resources, says the apprenticeship program accepts four to five applicants annually, typically selecting half from its existing employees and opening two slots to the public. The company also provides internships for students at Lorenzo Walker and Immokalee technical colleges, in-house training for industrial maintenance positions, corporate training and development, and has programs in place to train leaders through job shadowing. We believe in investing in our internal talent pool but sometimes struggle to find enough leaders, Mr. Boose said. It found one in Kelly DiMare who was halfway to completing her bachelors degree when she joined Arthrex in 2009. I was fortunate I had a manager who understood the value of me completing my degree and laid out a path for me, she said. Someone had the foresight to see where I could go and what I could to. Ms. DiMare took advantage of the companys tuition reimbursement and graduated top in her class at Hodges University with a degree in information systems management specializing in compliance as a quality engineer. Shes now the supervisor of Arthrexs Global Quality Management Systems. Mr. Boose said Arthrex reimburses employees for college courses pertinent to positons within the company, be it degrees in business, engineering, accounting and other departments. Employees must maintain certain grades. Kelly is a great example of what we do here for our employees, he said. Our managers work closely with employees who show initiative. We were lucky to find someone with her talent and ability and offer a program that feeds into the FutureMakers goal. Mr. Boose is a member of the FutureMakers Coalitions Champions Team, calling the work of the coalition valuable to our company. It matches well with what were doing and will also help us find additional talent in the community. Hes also hopeful the push to increase post-secondary education will aid Arthrex in filling difficult jobs, typically those relating to technical manufacturing and IT business analysts, the latter one of the fastest-growing needs in the modern-day business world. As the FutureMakers Coalition expands its reach and focus, it will actively involve more of the regional business community, Ms. LeSage said. Imagine what could happen in Southwest Florida if we work together to establish an aligned cradle-to-career pathway, she said. The result would be a highlyskilled workforce and the employment opportunities needed to ensure those skills stay in the region. Businesses would thrive, but so would individuals, families, schools, neighborhoods, and the economy.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 My name is the result of a 1996 merger between Ciba-Geigy and Sandoz, but my roots go back to a trading company founded in 1758 to deal in materials, chemicals, dyes, and drugs of all kinds. My early products included synthetic fabric dyes. Ciba introduced its first pharmaceuticals, the antiseptic Vioform and the anti-rheumatic agent Salen, in 1900. Today, based in Switzerland and with a market value topping $200 billion, Im a major pharmaceutical company, specializing in eye care and generic drugs, among other things. I employ about 120,000 people around the world. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Know Your StrategyIf your investing style is buying and selling on whims or impulses, youre doing yourself a disservice and youre not making the most of your hard-earned dollars. Are you rushing in without understanding much about a stocks underlying businesses? When the market swoons, are you selling in a panic which is often the wrong thing to do? Have you moved all your money into bonds after a market crash, not understanding that over long time periods, bonds usually significantly underperform the stock market?Wrongheaded investors often have unrealistic expectations, too, perhaps thinking that the stock market will grow by 20 percent or more per year. (The long-term historic average annual return is close to 10 percent, and over any given period, it can be considerably higher or lower.)You need to have and stick with an investing strategy. Here are factors to consider as you form it: Your stock investing time frame. (For stocks it should be at least five years, and ideally 10 years or longer.) Your expected involvement. (How much time will you regularly spend on investing? If its not very much, you might be better off with mutual funds, especially index funds.) Your tolerance for risk. (There are risky stocks and less risky ones. CDs and money market accounts may seem safe, but they wont grow your money quickly.) Your investment method. (Do you look for large, established leaders? For up-and-comers? For undervalued companies? Do you dollar-cost-average? How many stocks do you aim to own?) Your goals. (What kind of average returns are you aiming for? If you dont know, you will never know if youre succeeding.) What will make you sell a holding? What will make you change your strategy? Developing and articulating your strategy can help you better understand how youre investing and why. A rational strategy can improve your results, too. Sinking Into OblivionMy dumbest investment was buying shares of Sunterra, a time-share company, years ago. I bought a time share from the company and really liked the properties it owned, the companys story and its expansion plans. So I bought stock in it and kept buying more shares as it sank into oblivion. I learned that even though a company may have a good product, that doesnt mean its a good company. P.D., CincinnatiThe Fool Responds: Thats a great lesson. Sunterra, which owned many time-share properties, grew briskly in the 1990s but ended the decade in debt and in trouble. It filed for bankruptcy protection in 2000 and emerged from bankruptcy in 2002. In 2007, it was acquired by Diamond Resorts. Along the way, it faced shareholder lawsuits and allegations that it had been misrepresenting its performance and condition.Your conclusion is correct that great products dont necessarily lead to great companies or great investments. Think, for example, of Palm Pilots, which sold like hotcakes for a while. Unfortunately, the company lost ground to competitors and ended up a penny stock. Many great products are ahead of their time, or belong to companies that are not being managed well.You also learned the danger of trying to catch a falling knife buying more shares of a plunging stock. That will sometimes turn out well, but it will very often result in bigger and bigger losses. Demographic TailwindsIf youre looking for income, consider real estate investment trust (REIT) HCP (NYSE: HCP). Its focused on health care, with a portfolio featuring senior living facilities, hospitals, medical office buildings and more. HCP isnt a perfect investment, as expected interest rate increases will put pressure on profits. Also, it gets about a quarter of its rental income from a troubled tenant, HCR Manor Care. Thats a lot of eggs in one basket, but HCP is reducing its reliance on the company and negotiated a deal reducing its rent and buying its real estate. Theres still much to like about HCP. It has weathered plenty of storms and grown throughout several decades. It boasts 30 years of uninterrupted dividends and annual dividend increases, and its dividend recently yielded around 6 percent. Its stock-price appreciation has rewarded investors well over the years, too, averaging an annual gain of about 10 percent over the past decade. In its last quarter, HCPs revenue grew by nearly 15 percent year over year, with occupancy rates for its medical office and life sciences properties hitting 92 percent and 98 percent, respectively. Its funds from operations (FFO), a key measure of income for REITs, advanced 5 percent, while the company spent $1.4 billion on investments. Management boosted its projections for the year, too. Given Americas aging population, HCP is well positioned to keep growing and rewarding its shareholders. I began flying between Dallas, Houston and San Antonio in 1971. Today, with the largest fleet of Boeing aircraft in the world, Im a major American airline, serving more than 100 million customers annually with more than 3,600 flights a day. I served more than 100 million peanuts and more than 45 million pretzels in 2014. In a tough industry that has put many airlines out of business, I sport 42 consecutive years of profitability, with annual earnings topping $1.5 billion. My focus on 737s has helped me keep my costs low. My ticker symbol is heartwarming. Who am I? (Answer: Southwest Airlines) Indexes OutperformQI have a 401(k) account at work and want to invest in an index fund, but the 401(k) plan doesnt seem to include any in its offerings. What can I do? J.J., West Palm Beach, FloridaAYoure smart to seek an index fund, as ones based on broad market indexes (such as the S&P 500 or the total market) have trounced most stock mutual funds over long periods. They also often (but not always) feature low fees. If you and perhaps some co-workers, as well visit your companys 401(k) administrator and ask for an index fund or two, you might get them. You can also invest in index funds on your own, through your brokerage or mutual fund companies websites. Vanguard.com, for example, is home to many low-cost index funds. Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) can also serve you well, trading like stocks and tracking various indexes. Consider the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI), the Vanguard Total World Stock ETF (VT) or the Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND).

When architect Stanley Tigerman has an epiphany. Designed for and with the Pochis family in the Highland Park residential neighborhood of Chicago, this varying height one-story structure with its unusual shapes and rooflines gives the visual impression of a small village of many separate structures. The direct opposite of the open-floor plan, traveling from room to room in this house is an adventure of moving through squares, circles and unusually shaped rooms. The architect also designed some the furniture to fit the rooms non-standard dimensions. Marlene Pochis and her family have loved the home since it was built in 1988. Since her husband passed away and her children are grown with families of their own, she has decided to sell. At 5,100 square feet on a 1.6-acre lot, the three-bedroom, seven-bath house has a spacious, light-filled kitchen and a living room with large rug depicting the layout of the buildings. The rug will stay with the house. There is also a family room, den, fireplace, recreation room and laundry, two garages, a pool and rose garden surrounded by a large terrace. Classically contemporary, the creative architecture of Chicagos suburban village estate is on the market for the first time. The asking price: $2.2 million.

Thats especially true if youre an artist. If youve ever read books about organizing and tried following them, only to grow frustrated, dont worry. There are good reasons why that happens.BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com The right (brain) way of putting things in orderAfter 15 years operating their flagship Naples gallery, Gallery on Fifth, owners Olga and Leeza Arkhangelskaya opened their newest endeavor, East West Fine Art, earlier this month to specifically target Naples homeowners. We want to make the art closer to Neapolitans, says Olga, the elder of the mother-daughter duo. Before, we were mostly sending our art out of Naples. About two years ago we realized we needed to face reality and turn our face toward Neapolitans. While she and Leeza have gained a reputation among art collectors for their meticulously curated exhibitions of classically trained Russian and Eastern European artists, East West Fine Art merges the niche the Arkhangelskayas are known for and what they believe Neapolitans want for their homes. While Gallery on Fifth is geared more toward art collectors, East West Fine Art is focused toward interior design and features paintings, modern sculpture, digital art and photography at its Bigham Galleria location on Tamiami Trail North.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Does not share well with others In my kitchen I have an espresso maker, one of those sleek Italian models, glossy black, lovely and expensivelooking as it sits on my counter. It was a gift from a former lover, and each time I make a cup of espresso, the smell reminds me of lazy Sunday mornings in Paris. Of course, I try not to use it often. I am a rationer, and I like to parcel out the nice things in my life, to use just a little bit at a time so that the good feeling lasts. In fact, the nicer something is, the less I use it. With my espresso maker, Ive managed not to reorder any of the singleserving cups it requires for almost a year. I like to think its only for special occasions. Unfortunately, the man Im seeing well call him John D. doesnt agree. Hes happy to have an espresso every morning. Frequently, two. I try not to flinch as he drops another singleserving cup in the machine. Doesnt he know that theyre expensive? How about tea? I ask him. I hold up the kettle and give it an appealing little shake. Thats all right, he says. Coffees fine. I smile brightly, even though it takes everything I have to keep from snatching the espresso out of his hand. When I tell people Im an only child, they always make this face, a sort of worried frown. I bet you dont like to share, they say. Oh, no, I tell them. Im happy to share. Just not when its my things. The problem in relationships, Im noticing, is that they require a vast amount of sharing. Sharing of space, sharing of feelings, sharing of toiletries. In fact, its this sharing of day-to-day items that seems to be getting under my skin. In addition to my espresso maker, John D. is quite content to use my shampoo, my soap, my toothpaste. The shampoo I buy at the salon for an exorbitant price and use in small, peasize amounts (Ive made the same bottle last two years). I purchase my soap at the farmers market from a woman who handcrafts each bar, and my toothpaste comes from the Indian grocer, imported all the way from Mumbai. Each of these items is precious to me. So you can imagine how I struggle when I watch John D. squeeze out a fat trail of toothpaste as thick as a slug. Or I step into the shower to find that the bar of soap has been washed down to a sliver. Or when John D. comes out of the bathroom wrapped in a towel and runs his hand through his buzz cut, saying, Your shampoo smells nice but it doesnt lather well. I had to use a big handful to get a good foam. In these moments, I try to remind myself that sharing is the thrill of a relationship. So what if this man uses all my shampoo or squeezes out too much toothpaste? After all, isnt it wonderful to share this time with someone? I just wish he were a tea drinker.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 One, the books were probably written by left-brainers, for whom organizing is as natural as breathing. Theyre linear thinkers who probably alphabetized their toys as a kid. Even though their way of organizing works for them, it most likely wont work for you. Two, youre probably right-brained and more creative. You see the world differently. You dont think in black and white. To you, the world is filled with options and possibilities. Its not easy for a lot of people, says Lee Silber, author of Organizing from the Right Side of the Brain: A Creative Approach to Getting Organized. Most people use one side of their brain more than the other, he explains. The left side, the side of your brain thats good at where to put things, how to group things together, is different than the right side of the brain. The creative person lives in the right side of the brain, which is not the side that puts things away and organizes naturally. At one of his workshops, Mr. Silber divided the room into right brainers and left brainers, gave each group a pile of things toys, nuts and bolts and told them to figure out what went together and place them in categories. For the left-brainers, it was easy, he says. But the right brainers said, Well, it could go here, or maybe here. The left-brainers were done and had it organized in categories of what went together, and the right-brainers never finished. Mr. Silber writes books that help creative people master the business side of the arts. Thats not our strength, he says. What makes us great artists, writers, musicians is the side of the brain that comes up with wild ideas, but its the other side of the brain that has to implement them and schedule them and act on them.Right versus leftMost books about organization, he says, claim that if you follow their way, it will work. But we shouldnt have to change who we are, how we think, where we work, to be organized, he says. Even if we did follow their way, it will never stick, because wed have to change who we are, and most of us cant/wont/ shouldnt have to change. For example, I like things out where I can see them; why would I follow someone elses philosophy that everything should be put away? Right-brained people are visual thinkers. They like to have stuff out, he says. Theyre divergent thinkers and like to have a lot of things going on at once. They (move) from thing to thing. Something is out because we could be working on it at any moment. To right-brained people, a clean desk isnt the sign of an efficient mind, but of an unimaginative one. They cant thrive in an office as bare and sterile as an operating room. When people say, Just file it, our brain doesnt look at things that way. For us, out of sight means out of mind. If its in a filing cabinet, its just as if it never existed. And when it comes time to use whatever has been filed or put away, it cannot be found. (He knows one woman who removed the vegetable drawers from her refrigerator; shed forget she had food in them, because she couldnt see it.) Despite what most organization experts tell you, piles on desks are fine, Mr. Silber says. He has piles on his own desk, each with a little card tented on top, identifying stacks such as, table of contents, upcoming speeches. Within the pile, I put a paper with the year: 2015, 2016 Its a system. Its not a normal system, but it works for me.Using your artful tendenciesOrganizing is really an art, Mr. Silber says. Its creative, resourceful. Its one of those skills where you can use colors, where you can find innovative ways to hang things, to corral things. For example, people should pay attention to their natural proclivity and where they like to put things. If you walk into your home and drop your keys or anything else by the door, then put a basket there, he suggests. Maybe you even make that basket. You create something to house your stuff. I look at it as an art form, and when you look at it that way, its kind of exciting. We should find a way to use our tendency. As he suggests in his book: If things are piling up in one place, maybe thats where you want them to go. Put a bin, box, hook, or hang a shelf there. Dont fight it. The decision was made for you. So if you like to hang your clothes on doorknobs, just get more doorknobs. Get five, or maybe one for each day of the week, he says. It sounds crazy, but it only seems that way to outsiders. An artist friend of mine put a strip of wood on a wall and placed doorknobs every 18 inches on the stud, and thats where she hung her clothes. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. While others thought that friend was crazy, he says, I told her, Youre crazy like a fox, youre brilliant. She would put her outfits out for the week. It worked for her, and thats the key. In another case, Mr. Silber recalls looking at a friends CD collection and not being able to figure out the filing system. Well, I have The Cranberries next to Meatloaf, because theyre food, his friend told him. Well, what about over here? he asked. MC Hammer was next to Nine Inch Nails, The Carpenters and Metallica because theyre tools, he was told. Once you have the decoder key, its not that difficult to understand, he says. It seems random, but its not. So whenever you think, What Im doing is strange, dont worry. Someone else is stranger. All that matters is that it reflects you and works for you. Youre creative and youre OKRight-brainers like to be independent; they bristle at being told what to do. They dont deal well with rules and regulations or with being micro-managed. Many organization books turn them off because it feels like being forced to adhere to an artificial structure that doesnt fit. And then theres the superior attitude some left-brainers exude. In his book, Mr. Silber employs a more fun tone, throwing out various suggestions and telling readers to use whatever fits, or to make up their own solutions, using their creative skills. Thats part of the left-brainers makeup, he says. Theyre perfectionists, and they want everyone to be like them. If you can find what you need when you need it, youre organized. Neatness is nice, but it doesnt matter. What other book on organization would tell you that? Some of the left-brainers advice is good, he adds. Its not all bad, but we have to pick and choose. Not everything they say is gospel. We have to decide what well embrace and what doesnt fit. Organizing from the Right Side of the Brain is a validation for people whove been told all their lives that theres something wrong with them. No, theres nothing wrong with you, he insists. Theres just more than one way to organize, and this is your way. Youre not crazy. Youre OK. CREATIVEFrom page 1 Quotes from the bookThe easier you make something to do, the more likely you will do it. Ever have the feeling that you dont quite t in? Well, you dont. Thank God. We are unconventional people with unconventional ideas. Others dont know what to make of us or how we organize things so they react out of fear of the unknown and try to change us at every step. The problem does not entirely lie with you. Conventional organizing approaches dont take your natural tendencies into account. We will not follow the tried-and-true approach to being organized. We organize by clustering, using odd connections. We will zig when the books say zag. Things tend to get out of control during a transitional period What works for your life now? A good organizing system works with you and expands and contracts according to whats going on in your life.

I offer the same advice for those planning to see I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti in the ArtStage Studio Theatre of Florida Repertory Theatre: Be sure to eat a good hearty meal beforehand. The one-woman show not only includes numerous detailed descriptions of scrumptious meals, but the actual creation of a simple three-course dinner. If youve paid an extra $35 for the privilege of sitting at one of the four front tables, youll be served antipasta, salad, wine, bread and spaghetti (made from scratch) in a Bolognese sauce. Its all whipped up by actress Michelle Damato while she talks about her string of failed relationships. Shes portraying Giulia Melucci, who wrote a memoir of the same name, which Jacques Lamarre adapted into this play. Giulia (pronounced Julia) is pretty. Shes intelligent, and she has a great sense of humor. So whats her problem? Theyre multiple: She continually picks the wrong guys. Then she gives too much too quickly. When she cooks for the men in her life, they take it as their due, and are unappreciative. (For one boyfriend, Ethan, she even took two days off work to prepare a Seder from scratch.) Many women, upon seeing a red flag pop up in a new relationship, will take a step back and reassess. But like a bull, Giulia takes it as an invitation to rush forward and gets even more deeply involved. The guy doesnt seem right? Hes unsupportive, uncommunicative? He drinks too much? Giulia doubles down and moves in with him. This pattern, which she repeats over and over again, is very frustrating to hear. Its almost like a primer in what not to do in a relationship. It feels like a romantic horror movie. Time after time, you want to yell out to her, Dont do it! You wish you could take her to the womens restroom at Ed Debevics in Chicago, where, at the top of the mirror, in large, bold, black letters it says: YOURE TOO GOOD FOR HIM. But she keeps making the same mistakes. Throughout the show, she references various movies (including Moonstruck). And that could be part of her downfall: Giulia expects real-life love to be just like it is in the movies. The only problem is, someone forgot to give the script to the guys. Shes a generous spirit; to her, food equals love. She uses it to woo, to seduce, to demonstrate her love and then, when the relationships over, to comfort herself. Giulia is serially disappointed, rueful, yet perpetually optimistic. Ms. Damato is only the third actress in the country to play the role, having been chosen especially by director Michael Marotta for this production. A Florida Rep ensemble actor who has appeared in Sylvia and Miracle On South Division Street, she has considerable comedic skill and is perfect for the role. Shes effervescent and lively as she interacts with the audience. Shes coy, flirty, irrepressible. And she makes you laugh as she tells you about her endless string of losers (though her impersonation of one feels a little more Ethel Merman than Charles Nelson Reilly.) The script also gives her room to improvise at times. Though Giulia definitely has a knack for picking guys who cant commit, eventually, you realize, shes part of the problem: Shes equally as scared of commitment. The set, by the late Bruce Bailey, consists of a fully functioning stovetop and sink. A couple of Rothko-esque paintings add color to the back wall, and a sculpture of a torso made with utensils adds to the culinary feel. With the lights and raised platform, it initially looks more like the set for a cooking show, but Ms. Damato draws us all in and makes us feel as if were seated in her personal kitchen. She cant capture the hearts of the galoofs she dates, but she certainly captures the audiences. Its fascinating to watch Ms. Damato actually cook on stage, making pasta from flour and eggs, stretching out the dough with the help of a pasta machine and then shredding it into thin spaghetti strands. When the audience oohed, she looked up with a twinkle on her eye: I know, its like magic, right? she said, agreeing with them. My advice about eating beforehand stands, even if youre eating at the show. My theater companion and I, not having eaten since lunch, were starving by the time the main dish was finally served toward the end of the second act. By then, with all the talk of various meals and her boasting about her cooking prowess, I was expecting something out of this world that would make me almost moan with gastronomic pleasure. Though the salad had a nice light, lemon zing and interesting flavoring, the pasta lacked pizzazz. Also, if you choose to pay extra for your seat so you can partake of the meal, know that youll almost be eating in front of the audience. And be forewarned: The ushers will tell you over and over again before the show that the wine is really wine and the meat dish well, contains meat. Florida Rep certainly knows its audience; I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti is so popular, it might be extended another week. One-person shows are challenging to any actor, but to make a meal from scratch while performing one increases the difficulty. Ms. Damato deserves every bit of praise she receives. She makes it look effortless. As for me, I went, I ate, I laughed. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti>> When: Through Nov. 1 >> Where: ArtStage Studio Theatre of Florida Repertory Theatre, downtown Fort Myers >> Cost: $45-$49 (additional $35 for dinner, limited seating) >> Info: 332-4488 or oridarep.org COURTESY PHOTOSMichelle Damato serves up laughs and pasta in I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti. g ed i iffl y m l f t h e a fo ov t h m e e n c is s an o O a ny scra t t he d b it o l ook OS d

There might be some bumpy moments along the way, but at least youre heading in the right direction. You win praise for your choices. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You could be pleasantly surprised by how a decision about one thing opens up an unexpected new option. Also, assistance on a project could come from a surprising source. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) With more information to work with, you might now be able to start the process that could lead to a major change. Reserve the weekend for family and friends. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This could be a good time to begin gathering information that will help you turn that long-held idea into something substantive. A personal matter might need extra attention. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) That new challenge might carry some surprises. But you should be able to handle them using what you already know. That new supporter should be there to lend assistance. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Someone might be trying to disguise his or her true motives. But the perceptive and perspicacious Pisces should have little or no problem finding the truth in all that foggy rhetoric.

CONTRACT BRIDGEThe aim of the game is to winBY STEVE BECKERTheres surely something paradoxical about the statement that bridge is a relaxing game, when the fact is that you cant ever afford to relax if you want to do well. Take this hand, for example, where West leads a heart against three notrump. Declarer plays low from dummy and wins Easts ten with the king. He then cashes the ace of clubs and continues with the queen, but West plays low, and East shows out. This is a disappointing development for South, because if West had taken the king, a minimum of 10 tricks would have been ensured. But South sees there is still a chance to make the contract, so he leads a low heart and, after West plays low, finesses the nine. When the nine wins, he leads the jack of clubs, forcing West to take the king either now or on the next trick, and Souths troubles are over. The finesse of the nine is certainly unusual, since South started with three sure heart tricks and appears to be jeopardizing one of them. However, it is necessary because he needs an extra entry to dummy to establish the clubs and then get back to cash them later. However, the fact is that West was asleep at the switch at the critical point in the play. Having smartly refused to take his club king at trick three, he relaxed at trick four and, as we said at the start, you just cant afford to do that in bridge. When South led the low heart toward dummy, West should have put up the jack. Had he done that, nothing could have saved declarer. West knows from Easts play of the ten at trick one that South has the king and queen of hearts. West should therefore try to prevent declarer from gaining an extra entry to dummy by inserting the jack when South leads the six. It can cost West nothing to make this play, and might wind up gaining him a great deal.

EVERY NIGHT FILM CAPSULESThe Walk 1/2(Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon) Frenchman Philippe Petit (Mr. Gordon-Levitt) plots to walk between the World Trade Center Towers on a high wire in director Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) latest. The set up is occasionally clunky, but the actual walk between the towers is breathtaking. Rated PG.Sleeping with Other People (Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Amanda Peet) After sleeping together in college, Jake (Ms. Sudeikis) and Lainey (Ms. Brie) reunite 12 years later at a sex addicts meeting but swear theyll be just friends. Its a romantic comedy, so you can imagine how this turns out. Still, its pretty funny and worth a look. Rated R.The Martian (Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels) An astronaut (Mr. Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on Mars. Meanwhile, NASA discovers hes still alive and starts a plan to rescue him. A visually stunning and wonderfully told drama, it might be the best sci-fi movie of director Ridley Scotts career which is saying something, considering he made Blade Runner and Alien. Rated PG-13. Pawn Sacrifice 1/2(Tobey Maguire, Liev Schreiber, Peter Sarsgaard) Chess prodigy Bobby Fischer (Mr. Maguire) loses his sanity as his acclaim grows once he becomes a world famous player. The performances are strong enough to make this worth seeing, but its a tough sell to an already niche audience focused on a man whos extremely difficult to like. If it fails at the box office itll be because its nearly impossible to market. Rated PG-13.The Intern Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Rene Russo) The head (Ms. Hathaway) of an online fashion company hires a senior citizen intern (Mr. De Niro) who slowly has a positive impact on her. Its a nice, sweet, warm movie, and Mr. De Niro is adorable as a smart man whos hesitant to overstep his bounds. Rated PG-13.Everest (Jason Clarke, Keira Knightley, Jake Gyllenhaal) Famed mountain climber Rob Hall (Mr. Clarke) leads a group of civilians up Mount Everest. It takes a while to get going, but when it does, hold on tight its pretty awesome. Rated PG-13.Black Mass (Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson) James Whitey Bulger (Mr. Depp) comes to power in Boston in the 1970s with the help of his old friend and FBI Agent John Connolly (Mr. Edgerton). The drama is compelling and Mr. Depps performance is excellent, but the movie isnt very dynamic visually, making it merely good, not great. Rated R.

Not available with other promotions. Hours subject to change. Offer expires October 22, 2015. LATEST FILMSFreeheldIs it worth $10? YesFreeheld is a gut punch of a movie. Its Julianne Moore dying of cancer. Civil rights. Equal rights. Gay marriage. A flamboyant Steve Carell, whose comic relief has never been more welcome. Its one of those movies that infuriates you because its based on something that should be easy and obvious, and yet close-minded, intolerant bigots impede upon the rights of others. For as much as the world is making progress to move beyond these issues, its important to remember the struggles that brought them to light. Det. Laurel Hester is a valuable member of the Ocean City (New Jersey) Police Department. Dane (Michael Shannon), her partner on the force, is a womanizer, but he cares for Laurel and genuinely likes her as a person. Laurels secret is that shes a lesbian; after a meet cute with Stacie (Ellen Page) at a volleyball game they fall in l ove, buy a house together, get a dog, etc. They are as settled as any married couple can be, but its 2002 and gay marriage is not yet legal. This becomes a pertinent issue when Laurel is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, and the local government says her pension cannot be passed on to Stacie. Without the help of the pension, Stacie will lose their home after Laurel dies. So begins the main focus of the movie, which is the struggle Laurel and Stacie face for equal rights. After all, they argue, when a heterosexual cop dies, his/her spouse receives the pension, no questions asked. Why shouldnt it be the same for a homosexual couple? Unfortunately the town governing body, known as freeholders, dont agree and deny Laurels request to allow Stacie to receive her pension. Dane helps them fight the injustice, as does Steven (Mr. Carell), the leader of a group called Garden State Equality. Its his great energy that appropriately offsets the storys otherwise dour proceedings. As we expect, Ms. Moore is fabulous here. Fresh off her Oscar-winning turn playing an Alzheimers patient in Still Alice, she transforms from a strong and able detective into a frail, dying woman who seeks peace of mind and justice. Its ironic, of course, that Laurel fought for justice her entire career, only to endure a notable lack of it toward the end of her life. Ms. Page is solid as Laurels significant other, but whats interesting is that the focus moves away from Laurel and Stacies relationship and onto their fight for equal rights. Its a bit of an abrupt transition, and director Peter Sollett (Nick and Norahs Infinite Playlist), working from a script by Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia), doesnt succeed in making it smooth. Its like a two-act play without an intermission. Heres another issue: Its not Laurel and Stacie who do the fighting and they really cant, what with Laurels quickly deteriorating condition. So the fight manifests in the best way it possibly could when rallying support for a cause: from the public at large. Men, women, children, black, white, doesnt matter. Only the pigheaded white men with power (not all of them, but most) dont see the injustice of the policies at hand. Its inspiring to see the support Laurel and Stacie receive, but things get murky when Steven broadens the fight beyond what Laurel and Stacie desire, which distorts the integrity of the fight. Put another way, all Laurel wants is for Stacie to receive her pension, and we want that, too, because we saw them become a loving couple. When larger elements such as marriage equality are added to the equation, we become less emotionally invested, which in an odd way isnt fair to Laurel and Stacie. Freeheld is based on a true story, and its being promoted as a story that was a precursor to gay marriage being approved nationwide. That might be so. It also might just be a marketing tool. Regardless, on its own terms and not necessarily as a sociopolitical statement it is an emotional drama that allows us to invest in its characters and root for the right thing. p A a w i j n dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> According to USA Today, the real Stacie Andree told Ellen Page that it was cool to meet her and Julianne Moore, but that she had a hard time getting excited about the movie because it wouldnt exist if Laurel hadnt have died.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC16 WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 FLORIDA WRITERSAncient secrets revealed in present day global adventure The Magicians Guide: Book 1 Faces in the Stones by Robert E. Gelinas. Archebooks Publishing. 294 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95. Dr. William Turner, an expert in quantum physics, is also an expert in real magic. As a Master Magician, he is not merely an illusionist or card manipulator, but rather a person who can manipulate natural laws through an understanding of natures secrets and the hidden powers that lie within many of us untapped. One thread of Robert E. Gelinas amazing book is Turners detailed journal, written for his daughter Sasha, a university professor. As she learns, we learn but I dont know if I dare practice any of the energy transfers or other operations that would allow me to become a Magi. The author uses the structural device of alternating passages from the journal with chapters in a place-jumping narrative that follows intriguing characters in a wizards war for global dominance. The time is the here and now. The players are Middle Eastern dreamerschemers, former Soviet Union agents, Western Europeans and Americans who are mostly good guys you know, the stuff of yesterdays and todays electronic and print journalism and opinionmongering. Buy a nuclear bomb from Pakistan, explode it in the right place at the right time, and you and yours can reshape the world (or whats left) according to your wishes. However, your enemies the good magicians will make every attempt to block you. The plotting, scheming and exercises of superpowers take readers on a dazzling tour, each stop described with vividness and authoritative detail. We first make the acquaintance of Sasha in Austin, Texas, as she learns that her father has been arrested and sent to a psychiatric hospital in Geneva for evaluation. He was charged with murdering a high-ranking government official. Is he really mad? Has he been set up? We learn soon enough that William has been caught in an Inner Circle power play orchestrated the current head of the Inner Circle of the Magi, Daniel DuMonde. Though confined under heavy guard, William has vanished. w t i p s W philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com GELINAS FACIAL PLASTIC SURGEON DR. JOHN M.

Vacation Spot of Pirates, Poets, Presidents and Party Goers!We discover more when we meet DuMonde and other players at his office in Paris. He assumes that he and other members of the Inner Circle are being hunted by William Turner. The race is on, with magicians choosing up sides. Youve heard the phrase uneasy lies the head that wears the crown? Well, suspicion and fear of betrayal are at large in these corridors of unusual personal power. Further stops on this high-adventure tour include Rome, where we get to know Turners former wife and Sashas mother, Penelope; Geneva, where we find Magi, Interpol chief inspector and Turners mentor Allister McKenzie; Kiev, home to Alexey Borochenko, DuMondes ally in the battle of the Magi titans; London, where McKenzie reappears at the Interpol Field Office; Athens, where we get a first view of DuMondes vessel The Libertine; Izmire, Turkey, where Borochenko plots with Stephan Burke, another villainess Magi; and then, at long last, Cairo, Damascus, Tehran and Tel Aviv. Its as if the author is moving pieces across a chessboard. As these masterminds set up their next steps in the corrupted Inner Circles game of enemies and allies, readers get to appreciate the authors skill in economically setting up attractive, vivid scenes. There is a creative writing exercise in which students are asked to define a character through his or her preferred physical surroundings and material accoutrements. Mr. Gelinas gets high marks here, paying careful attention to furnishings, clothing, hairstyles, architecture and whatever else might evoke personality while anchoring his created worlds with such sensory details. Woven through the novel, via returns to Texas, is the growth of a romance between Sasha and her teaching assistant, Travis Gardner. The two eventually become key fighters in her fathers cause. This bomb is set to explode. (I wont tell you where, though.) The timers countdown punctuates the action as suspense builds toward one of several possible outcomes. What also builds suspense, and also punctuates the action, is our progress through the more astounding lessons in William Turners journal-guide to mastering real magic. When you use a term like Book 1 in your title, you are clearly betting on sales to warrant future installments. Im rooting for Mr. Gelinas to win the readership that will bring us more of his highly original imagination.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 239.434.6533/thirdstreetsouth.com very Saturday KOVEL: ANTIQUESHandling natures call with class BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELIndoor plumbing with a flushing toilet was not commonplace until the 20th century, even though the first flushing toilet was patented in 1775. Queen Elizabeth I and other members of royalty had a type of toilet that emptied into a nearby body of water. Others used outhouses, chamber pots and holes in the ground. In the 18th century the wealthy sometimes had a special chair altered to hold a chamber pot. A period Chippendale commode corner chair was sold recently at a Cowan auction for $185, and at another auction a short Chippendale commode chair sold for $24,000. What was the difference? The expensive chair had a tooled leather seat, an intricately designed skirt, well-shaped back panels and arms, and original finish. It is one of the best of its type. A regular chair was sometimes converted into a commode chair. A hole was put in the seat and a shelf below held the potty. The front panel on the chair that hides the potty was probably added when the chair was altered. Careful examination can show where it is attached to the original seat. And details of the style of the chair, the straight legs or curved legs with ball and claw feet, and the possible shortening of the arms all influence the price. Collectors want original antiques and alterations lower the value. And the most expensive furniture is always made by the best craftsmen. Today, more than in the past 20 years, the original finish adds much to the value. Q: My blue cast-iron motorcycle was a gift when I was 5 years old. It has a policeman riding on it. The motorcycle is 6 inches long and 4 inches high. The tires are hard rubber and the original bulb is in the front light. Does my old toy have any value? A: Your police motorcycle was made by Hubley Co., founded in 1898 in Lancaster, Pa., by John E. Hubley. The company originally specialized in toy trains. It reorganized in 1909 and started to make cast iron toys-horse-drawn wagons and circus wagons, fire engines, miniature coal stoves and toy guns. As the automotive industry grew, Hubley added more and more models. The company stopped making cast iron toys in 1942 due to the war effort. After the war, it made diecast metal and plastic toys. The name was changed to Gabriel Industries in 1965, and in 1978, the company was bought by CBS. From about 1934 to 1936, Hubley made electrical toys, like your motorcycle, with battery-operated headlights. The motorcycles also made an exhaust sound. Theyre rare, and your motorcycle could sell for $350 to $500, depending on its condition. Q: What is the sheet music for Will You Remember (Sweetheart) from the movie Maytime worth? It has a picture of Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald on the front. A: Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy performed together in eight movies between 1935 and 1942. Maytime, a 1937 musical distributed by MGM, was their third movie together. They were dubbed Americas Sweethearts, and they also had an off-screen romance. Most sheet music sells for $5 to $10. The better the cover pictures and the condition, the higher the price. Q: I have a stoneware jug, 11 inches tall. It was my mother-in-laws. The jug is printed with blue letters, Globe Liquor Co., 148 & 152 Main St., Buffalo, N.Y. Can you tell me about it? A: Your jug doesnt have a makers mark, but a wine and liquor wholesaler operated in Buffalo, New York, at that address from the 1880s until about 1901. Salt-glazed stoneware pottery from Europe was used in America from its earliest days. By the 18th century, it was being made in America by hundreds of small local potters. Early decorations were incised and later designs were painted free hand, usually in cobalt blue glaze. By 1860 designs were more elaborate and had stylized flowers, leaves, birds and other pictures. Names often were printed or stamped on the jugs. Stoneware crocks held butter, sugar, spices, flour, coffee, tea, honey, molasses, pickles, cheese, smoked fish, meats and cheese. Stoneware jugs and bottles held vinegar and beer and kept water cool and drinkable. Dont forget whiskey, thats probably what was in your jug. Stoneware was out of favor by about 1910, after the inventions of canning in glass jars and refrigeration. Now collectors consider salt-glazed stoneware folk art. Prices are determined by rarity, unusual decoration or known maker. Your jug is worth about $80 to $100. Q: I was given a book called The Philadelphia Directory for 1806, Containing the Names, Trades, and Residence of the Inhabitants of the City, Southwark, and Northern Liberties. Its in good condition and has about 186 pages plus the front and back covers. The previous owner had the entire book covered in a red leather cover to preserve it. Does it have any value? A: Old city directories sometimes sell at auctions. An 1876 San Francisco directory sold for $234 several months ago. There are collectors of old books and ephemera, which includes other paper collectibles. Some bookstores and auction houses specialize in selling old books. The directory probably has the most appeal in the Philadelphia area. It would sell best at an antiquarian book seller. You might think about donating it to an area museum or library. Tip: Invert your old glass cake-stand and use it for chips and dip, salsa or hummus. The pedestal must be hollow to hold the dip; the top plate is fine for the chips.

Thanks for writing, and good luck. A Dolls StoryBy Filomena D. Warihay, Fort MyersMost dolls have a story. Mine is a cautionary tale. I came into existence 106 years ago. In that time, Ive learned that there are some disturbing aspects of being alive. The one that seems to trouble people most is they arent going to be alive forever. My concern is the reverse. I crave mortality. I cant tell you how many times, over the decades, my owners have attempted to either kill, curse or cure me. I never cared before. This time is different. I crave their success. I didnt willingly enter their lives. A non-human entity used me to gain trust and entrance into the Capello family. It wasnt difficult to do. I am not your every day Betsy Wetsy. My face is porcelain. Im fair with rosy cheeks. My eyes are blue, and my hair is ever so life-like. It is long, dark and wavy. I was precious, as Mrs. Capello said. The Capellos inadvertently let me in. They hoped I would provide companionship, entertainment and happiness to their first-born child, Dina. How could they know that, for over a century, I have been inhabited by the spirit of a human child who died young and unexpectantly? That child suffered unspeakable indignities and an early death. His name was Anid. His demise could have been prevented if someone had cared for him enough to notice his diminished, fevered, consumptive state. He died battered. He didnt cross over. He resides in me. I am a receptacle for his haunting. Initially, I act cute. Then, I can become something darker and deeper. I am manipulated by Anids troubled, tortured spirit. That is the way it is when you are possessed. The Cappellos brought me home as a birthday gift for Dina when she turned 1. Dina loved me unconditionally. She treated me like a real friend. All of her secrets were my secrets. For the first time in my existence, I cared about what happened to a human. Not only did I care about Dina, I became attached to the twins, Amy and Albert, who were born three years later. The Capello children seemed to know that I wasnt meant to sit on a shelf looking pretty. They didnt treat me that way. They embraced me and made me part of their lives. I wanted only the best for them. I had no control over what happened. Let me tell you about Dina first. Growing up she was a dark haired, blue-eyed, desolate beauty. There was an underlying sadness about her. A sadness that made her both vulnerable and alluring. She exuded an aura of danger. Maybe thats why boys were so attracted to her. Dina was a heartbreaker until she reached the age of 16. Then the tide shifted, and I had a front-row seat to one of lifes greatest dramas. Dinas boyfriend, Josh, dumped her via text. The worthless sack of raging adolescent hormones! She cried him a river. I wanted her to drown him in it. She didnt. I intervened and inflicted him with an unrelenting penile rash (a rare, appropriate use of my sinister powers). It plagues him to this day. Dina wailed for weeks and refused to talk with friends when they called. She posted humiliating love-sick messages on Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter. I shudder to think of all the other social media sites she selected for her mourning. The child barricaded herself in her room, dressed in an old sweats for weeks on end. I longed to cuddle her. I desperately wanted her to understand that even though it was curtains for the Josh act, the show would go on.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 15-21, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C21 Mrs. Cappellos heart was breaking too. She tried consoling Dina with a narrative from her own youth. Mrs. C. laid a hand on Dinas cheek. She spoke lovingly. Of course it hurts. Ive been there. Ive been dumped, dumped, and dumped again. In fact, my college sweetheart dumped me via messenger his best friend. He was too chicken to do it himself. You are suffering loss. And, even though Josh is the one who ended it, he is probably feeling sad as well. A broken heart isnt like a skinned knee. It takes a while to heal. You want the hurt to stop. It didnt stop. Dina quit eating and had difficulty sleeping. When she did drift off, I relentlessly whispered to her. Hang tight. Hang in there. She did using the beautiful long red scarf Josh had given her for Valentines Day. Her mother found her. Watching Mr. and Mrs. C. grieve was the second time Ive experienced a sensation close to human emotion. The first time was nearly 10 years before when Dina was 6 years old and the twins were 3. Ive often wondered if Dina remembered or regretted the disdain with which she greeted the birth of the twins. The child was adamant. Put them back in your belly. I hate them! They are ugly, stupid, stinky, and they cry all the time. Her 3-year-old sibling rivalry scared the hell out of me. I know that it may not sound that bad; trust me, it was. Words just fail to describe it precisely. I didnt need any help bringing malice into the Capello family, Dina had it covered. Thankfully, it didnt last long. Soon Dina was enamored with Amy and Albert. They walked and talked early and were delightful little duplicates of each other. Albert played with me. There is nothing wrong with boys playing with dolls. They do it all the time. Have you seen the action figure aisle in toy stores? I enjoyed his attention. What terrified me was a malevolent tiny voice inside me urging me to look into Alberts eyes and whisper, You are not a boy. You are a girl. Or maybe you are a squash. No, wait, you are an alarm clock! I dont know how I managed to squelch the foul impulse. Amy idolized Dina. She mimicked her every move and delighted in playing school. Dina read her stories and taught her how to finger paint. She was a precocious toddler and fiercely fair-minded. Whatever Albert had, she demanded her share. Unfortunately, she got it. When the twins were 3 years old, Id been with the family for nearly six years with no evidence of my haunting. Then, the twins started to act differently. I knew that my presence was the reason. I remember the day it started. It was a lovely day in early June. The children were excited about a picnic planned for that afternoon. Out of the blue, Amy started screaming and throwing tantrums. Albert crouched in a corner and wet his pants. Within days, both twins were destroying their toys and refusing hugs and affection. Both kids, formerly talkative and outgoing, regressed to babyish jibber. Mr. and Mrs. Capello spent weeks taking them to specialists. The diagnosis came a month later. Both children had Hellers Disease, a rare pervasive developmental disorder. It causes the regression of ability in language, social function and motor skills. Sometimes referred to as childhood dementia, it is a devastating condition of unknown cause. Unknown except to me. I am not evil (although sometimes I do have a bit of an attitude). I am innocent of mal intent. I am simply the vessel. I was unprepared for the fact that grief is so unpredictable. I still feel the hideous weight of watching those two darlings deteriorate to a vegetative state. My presence robbed two innocent children of their future. It was nine years after the twins were institutionalized that Dina ended her life. Today, Mr. and Mrs. Capello are moving. Their home has become a heartless, inconsistent place. A place stripped of the joy of children. Ive been unceremoniously abandoned at the bottom of this staircase. There is no respect for the undead. I am lolling prone next to the lovely china that Dina, Amy and Albert used for our tea parties. The best I can hope for is that the Capellos burn me, skewer me with a wooden stake, or have me exorcised. I am not afraid of death. I am terrified of life. I know not what my fate will be. Dont let me be yours.

In fact, they paired the two by commissioning Siberian artist Julia Kostsova earlier this year to paint iconic local scenes such as Fifth Avenue South and Lovers Key State Park. With several large rooms, the new gallery offers Olga and Leeza a unique advantage when it comes to staging pieces. People can see how the art will look in their home, not the cold space of a gallery, which is very abstract, Olga says. Its not intimidating. Its very friendly. It also affords the pair more opportunities to host clients and community events than Gallery on Fifths Mercato location does. Its much more flexible for us, Olga says. We have a garden courtyard that is very conducive to having wonderful receptions. Thats really the advantage. The pair anticipates hosting commercial, charitable and social events at the new gallery and providing full service to their clients, including home shows, installations and consultations. On exhibit now at East West Fine Art is Life in Black and White, an exhibit of Robina Yasmins hyper-realistic contemporary paintings of zebras. The artist is particularly interested in the loving relationships in zebra herds and the special intimacy between zebra mothers and their offspring. While the gallery is open now, the owners are planning a grand opening celebration on Wednesday, Jan. 13. Until then, East West Fine Art is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 220-7503 or visit artorg.net.

Thats my favorite show on television today, and it always makes me count my blessings. Layla F. in GeorgiaA: Im sorry to have to tell you, but the tear-jerking season-two finale that aired last month was indeed the series finale. ABC Family decided not to renew the one-hour drama, which centered on 24-year-old April, played by Italia Ricci, a journalist trying to work her way up the ladder at a Boston newspaper while balancing her career and family. Just as things start to come together for her, she gets the devastating news that she has leukemia. The series finale saw April take her best friend, Beth, and love interest, Dominic, to Italy, where she reveals to them she is not eligible for the clinical trials for her cancer treatment and has decided not to pursue a bone-marrow transplant. She just wants to live out her days in peace. She tells Beth: Its not giving up because Ive already won. I could die happy here. Q: Is it true that Richie Sambora and Heather Locklear are back together? I saw pictures of them online frolicking on a beach together. Nina H., via emailA: The former Bon Jovi guitarist and his gorgeous yet down-to-Earth ex-wife have not gotten back together. They are one of those rare Hollywood ex-couples who others could learn a lesson from: They have remained good friends since splitting up eight years ago, and they take the co-parenting of daughter Ava very seriously. Recently photos of Richie, Heather and Ava surfaced of the trio having fun in the sun and sand in Bora Bora, where the friendly exes were treating their daughter to a family vacation before she goes off to college. Q: Can you tell me what Aaron Eckhart has been up to lately? Rita C., via emailA : The handsome and versatile actor is currently shooting Clint Eastwood's latest film, Sully, which chronicles the January 2009 real-life events where Capt. Chelsey Sully Sullenberger safely landed his aircraft on the Hudson River after a flock of geese knocked out both engines. Aaron plays first officer and co-pilot Jeff Skiles opposite Tom Hanks Sully. The film is based on Sullenbergers 2009 autobiography Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters. The film just started shooting, and as of this writing, a premiere date had not been set. Q: Did they cancel Person of Interest? Im getting nervous because I haven't been able to find it on CBSs fall schedule. Paul T., via emailA: CBS did renew the crime drama for a fifth season a 13-episode order of the series will premiere midseason. Although CBS hasnt yet made its final decision, show runners are approaching this season as if it could be the final one, as executive producer Jonathan Nolan revealed during this summer's Comic-Con.

It grows almost exclusively in California, and has since the middle of the 19th Century. But it had to come from somewhere. Now, thanks to the science of ampellography, which performs DNA analysis on wine grape varietals, we know that zinfandel grapes originally came from Croatia and has a genetic twin in the Primitivo grape, which is grown in Apulia, the heel of the Italian boot. American zinfandel comes from cuttings brought to the U.S. from Austria back around 1820, and was the favorite wine of the 49ers back in the Gold Rush days. In fact, most of the original zinfandel vines (which are very old) are planted in Amador County, which was one of the centers of Gold Rush fever. Many vines that are anywhere from 75 to 100 years old are still producing today, which is why you may see the phrase old vines or ancient vines on the label. In spite of the fact that it can be a terrific wine to enjoy, zinfandel is not considered a serious wine. Its best within three to five years of the vintage because the big fruit flavors we love diminish over time and the alcohol content becomes more obvious. So we dont cellar a zin for 20 or 30 years as we would a big Bordeaux or cabernet. Further lack of respect comes from its use as a major component of California jug wines like hearty Burgundy, and it was a favorite grape of home winemakers during Prohibition. Its also used to make so-called white Zinfandel, which is the ultrasweet, pinkish fruity stuff that has been so popular from the 1980s to today. There is no such grape as white zinfandel. Stylistically, zinfandel stands alone. We expect a certain taste experience when we enjoy wines from Bordeaux, the Rhone, Burgundy and similar historic places, but zinfandel has no such heritage. As a result, its available in a wide range of styles, from light and fruity like Beaujolais to rich and extracted like cabernet. There are even late harvest styles that taste much like port. I call zinfandel Americas wine because (A) most people consider it indigenous to California, (B) because its not grown very much outside the U.S. and (C) because theres no better wine to drink with your backyard barbecue. Its perfect with grilled and stewed meats, and perfectly accompanies sweet and smoky sauces. In fact, ZAP, the Zinfandel Advocates and Producers trade group, calls it our Heritage Wine. Another thing to know about zinfandel is that its characteristic lush extracted fruit flavors support very high levels of alcohol. You can drink a zin that has more than 15 percent alcohol and not know it until maybe its too late. Even though some people like to say that the best zinfandels come from wineries that begin with the letter R, like Rosenblum, Renwood, Ravenswood, Ridge, and Rafanelli, there are plenty of easy-drinking, food-friendly zins on the shelf. Theyre attractive for their aromas of violets and rose petal, and big jammy fruit flavors of black cherry, strawberry, cranberry and raspberry. Theres usually some cinnamon, clove and vanilla in there as well. Whats not to like? Heres whats in our cellar: Peirano Estate Immortal The immortal designation comes from the fact that the vines are extremely old. Heitz Napa Zinfandel -Bright, berry flavors with a hint of black pepper. Rosenblum Planchon Vineyard Smoky plum, black currant, cocoa, and vanilla Seghesio Old Vine Ted Seghesio and his family have been making zinfandel in Sonoma for more than 120 years, and theyre good at it. These vines average more than 90 years old, and the wine offers ripe cherries, black currants, with hints of briar, clove and spice.Ask the Wine WhispererIm concerned about calorie content. Is wine fattening? Mitchell H., Fort MyersThere are between 80 to 100 calories in a four-ounce glass of wine. Sweeter wines have more carbohydrates because of the residual sugar content. If you want to reduce calories, try lighter whites, such as sauvignon blanc. Wine contains no fat or cholesterol. jerry GREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com Zinfandel maker Ted Seghesio Rosenblum zinfandels are among the Wine Whisperers top choices.

Read on to learn about Chef Andy Hunter and how he keeps diners coming back for more. Q: What is your culinary background? A: I went to culinary school at the Opryland Hotel Culinary Institute in Nashville and apprenticed there for just about three years, working in every restaurant in the hotel as well as all of the banquet kitchens. After that I spent some time in Kentucky while my wife finished school, then went back to Nashville before going off to New Orleans. We spent five years in New Orleans. Most of that time I worked for Anne Kearney at Peristyle restaurant. I did a short stint at Elizabeths in the bywater when Peristyle was closed from a fire. I finished up in New Orleans as Foundation Room chef at the House of Blues. We left about nine months before Hurricane Katrina. I transferred to Chicago with the House of Blues and was the chef of the Foundation Room in Chicago for two years. After that I went back to Nashville for a bit, and now here in Naples. Q: Nashville is considered Mecca for Southern culture. How did getting your culinary education there, rather than New York City or San Francisco like other chefs, color your view of food and the food business? A: Nashville has this huge food scene now, but when I was growing up there it was really only known food-wise for meatand-three restaurants, and hot chicken. Dinner was what you did before you went to go see a show. It was definitely not the scene that it is now. My favorite places to eat were little hole-in-the-wall restaurants serving Southern food from a steam table. Frank Stitt was cooking upscale Southern in Birmingham, Louis Osteen was in Charleston, Jose Guiterez was at the Peabody in Memphis, and (RIP) Paul Prudhomme was cooking in New Orleans. I took inspiration from stories I heard about those chefs and just started applying a little more technique and refinement to the foods and ingredients that I loved to eat at the Mason Jar restaurant. Q: Youve described yourself as being sustainably raised in the South by Yankees. How did your upbringing and your parents northeastern sensibility influence your food? A: Both my parents are from Ohio. Our Sunday night dinner was often pot roast or some type of steak with baked potatoes and moms famous broccoli souffl. She is a wonderful cook, and many of her recipes have influenced what is on The Bay House menu now. But I was also fascinated by what the other kids in the neighborhood were eating for dinner. Sundays at my friends house was fried chicken, rice with butter, catfish, runner beans, cornbread, fried corn, biscuits, etc. Q: What brought you The Bay House? What was Peter Tierney looking for in a chef at the time? A: My darling wife, Evelyn, had a hobby of looking on Craigslist for jobs for me in places she thought she might like to live. There was a cleverly written and funny ad for a chef in Naples on the Charleston Craigslist page. I wrote a funny response and forwarded my resume. I remember the ad asked for a working chef whose head fit squarely on his/her shoulders, no larger. Q: How do you develop menus for the restaurant? A: I write notes all year long on things Id like to cook, ways we can improve existing dishes, specials weve run, ingredients everything that interests me. At some point, I sit down and turn those notes into an outline and figure out what changes or additions make real sense. We cook the dishes and talk about them a lot, and move on from there. Q: Do you have any favorite local ingredients or vendors? My friend Nick Batty from Inyoni Farms grows the most amazing lettuces. We buy as much as he will sell us. Danny Blank from 12 Seasons Farms has unbelievable citrus. The tangerines taste like candy, and his heirloom tomatoes are just as good. We are lucky enough to have Rosy Tomorrows Farm bring by vegetables when they have them, and Im honored to be a part of their chefs advisory board. I also like fresh blue crab from Pine Island and bottarga from Anna Maria Island. Q: Are The Bay House and The Claw Bar doing anything innovative or interesting other establishments arent? A: I dont really know how to answer this, other than to say our focus is on doing what we do well, and not worrying so much about what others are doing. We are constantly striving to improve. i b i f y lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOChef Andy Hunter

The result recordbreaking sales, new models sold before or shortly after completion, an expanded focus in downtown Naples and nearly 30 model homes in various stages of development throughout Southwest Florida. Weve made a concerted effort over the last two years to buy available homesites throughout Naples to offer a variety of scenarios for discerning homebuyers dreaming of the beach, a country club experience, a boat in the backyard, or a more urban environment close to the beach and downtown, said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes. Specifically in downtown Naples, there is a market demand for upscale homes with proximity to Fifth Avenue South and a more walkable lifestyle. Were focused on fulfilling the demand. The builder continues to expand homebuilding possibilities in Naples and its surrounding neighborhoods, with purchases of prime real estate in Port Royal and on Crayton Road, Fifth Street South, Rudder Road and Neapolitan Way. Eight models with unique lifestyles are planned. Two of the models include premiere locations in Port Royal off Gordon Drive.

Each model home has been carefully sited to ensure privacy and optimal views, which often include sparkling lakes, golf course fairways and nature preserves. Our model homes really set buyers imaginations in motion, said Mr. Wilson. Homebuyers walk in and just stop, their gaze sweeping as they take in the architectural details, the textures and colors of the interior design created by Romanza Interior Design, the level of luxury, and open floor plans that capture the Florida lifestyle with large outdoor spaces.

The Mangrove Bay Concierge Building will offer private onsite storage for resident kayaks, paddle boards, and/or jet skis within convenient reach of the private community boat ramp, and will offer three well-appointed guest suites available by advance reservation for residents guests. Three stunning model homes will open in November: The Sanibel III Courtyard Residence, and two Waterfront Residences, the Amelia III and the Keewaydin II. The Sanibel III Courtyard Model Residence (Lot 24) offers approximately 3,331 SF under air, and will feature a unique beach aesthetic that mixes dark, light, and weathered wood appointments with a cool color palette, perfectly complementing its limed oak wood floors, reclaimed wood accents, tongue-andgroove ceiling detail and other custom ceiling designs, barn doors, and custom moldings and cabinetry throughout the residence. An attractive leaseback program is available. Whether entertaining or simply enjoying sunrise over the river or relaxing in Southwest Floridas balmy evening air, the home designs at Mangrove Bay are artfully planned with your every comfort and convenience in mind, and naturally bring people together. The model residences at Mangrove Bay must be toured in person in order to experience the extensive thought that went into their conception. Designed by MHK Architecture & Planning, built by Lotus Construction, LLC, and exclusively marketed by Paradise Realty of Naples, LLC, they are gorgeously styled by Freestyle Interiors.
