The Coalition of Immokalee Workers is calling for Publix to extend the same Fair Trade principles used as advertising on its GreenWise coffee to fieldworkers who pick tomatoes in Immokalee. A message on Publixs GreenWise brand coffee reads, Were proud to say that this coffee is Fair Trade. Why? Because Fair Trade prices help small farmers provide employees with livable wages and work conditions. Which fosters the same values we do: community, well-being and a nicer world. But so far Publix, which said it had 2009 sales of $24.3 billion and operates 1,025 stores in the southern United States, hasnt agreed to pay the additional cent to benefit wages and living conditions of Immokalee workers. Theyve now started to embrace Fair Trade for the coffee suppliers, says Jordan Buckley of Interfaith Action of Southwest Florida, a CIW partner.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 Its nearly Halloween, so heres a suggestion for a costume that will frighten the bejeezus out of a cast of thousands up and down the southwest coast: James Madison. Its hard to believe, isnt it? His wife, Dolly, invented ice cream, one of the great antidotes to fright. He came from Virginia, went to Princeton, and earned a reputation as a framer of the Constitution and the father of the First Amendment, championing free speech and freedom of religion. From 1809-1817, he even served as president, our fourth. Innocuous as all that sounds, Jimmy, like Freddy (Krueger, a Halloween nightmare made for the silver screen), strikes terror into the heart of God-fearing Christians up one side of the gulf coast and down the other. Not all of them, of course, and perhaps not even a majority of them. But many.And why? Well, just take one look at him (you can Google his image) the powder, the wig, the drawn cheeks, the fact that hes been dead for 177 years, which doesnt speak well for anybodys appearance. Would you like to have a ghoul like him come knocking on your door? By the standards of Main Street Naples, the guys appearance is more than a little worrisome. But thats not what terrifies the mob, whether Christian or politician. What really gets their goats is what Mr. Madison said and wrote, which keeps echoing around public forums like a midnight howl from the mausoleum of the First Amendment. For one thing, he wrote, Religion is essentially distinct from civil government, and exempt from its cognizance; a connection between them is injurious to both; there are causes in the human breast which ensure the perpetuity of religion without the aid of law. And for another thing, The number, the industry, and the morality of the priesthood, and the devotion of the people, have been manifestly increased by the total separation of the church from the state. Heres what Mr. Madison did not mean by that thinking: He did not mean that politicians, public school officials or other public officials cannot stand up and express their beliefs as individuals anywhere they choose, including at city hall or in some other public space. Heres what Mr. Madison did mean and this, along with his wifes ice cream (which goes perfectly with apple pie, just like a separation of church from state goes perfectly with freedom to worship), pretty much defines the American Way: He meant that a government of elected officials and its hired or appointed representatives should stubbornly insist on showing no hint of favoritism, support, aid, promise or for that matter persecution to any one religion, or non-religion. And that includes letting churches or faith groups settle in to use public property, which suggests more than a hint of government favoritism. Mr. Madisons First Amendment remains the sentry that guards religious freedom. To it, the founders welded two clauses that give it some real endurance, like additional fuel tanks attached to the wings of long-range aircraft: the establishment clause and the free exercise clause. Theyre not complicated. One says government should do nothing to establish any religion, and the other says government should do nothing to prevent the free exercise of any religion. By insisting on those principals, Mr. Madison said, officials actually increase the vitality of religion, which he favored. But he pointed out something else: There remains in others a strong bias towards the old error, that without some sort of alliance or coalition between Government or Religion neither can be duly supported. For the religious sponsors of closer public and religious activities for those who would throw open government or public spaces such as public schools to Christians or other religious groups denial of their religious practices or ceremonies in public spaces amounts to unfair and unequal treatment of their churches. Recently, for example, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes sponsored a dodge-ball tournament at a local public high school, bringing in a fire-and-brimstone preacher. Heres what the man told my son and the 50 or so kids who had to listen to him before they could play dodge ball in the school gym: He said that most people in the room would go to hell because few were pure and sin free. To avoid that, however, they could quit listening to rock n roll (he named a particularly devilish group), confess their sins, go to church and accept Jesus, whom theyd discover to be a kind and loving God but not if they didnt believe. Jesus died for all of you, he told the students, and the only hope was to follow him and only him. The Fellowship, apparently, sees itself a Christian group willing to preach a narrow version of the Christian gospel on ground set aside for all Americans by Americans of all religions and beliefs, or non-beliefs not only as sacrosanct, but as no different in obligation or right than, say, the football or baseball teams or the debate team or a chess club or the band or the cheerleading squads or the garden club or the Junior League. None of those groups make a practice of telling students they might go to hell, of course, but never mind that now the Fellowship was just exercising free speech. Not in church, of course, where its preachers can exercise free speech all they want and pay no taxes to boot, but right there in the heart of American public life, at a public school. Is that so bad? Naw, its fun to see somebody put the fear of God in some rabblerousing teenagers, isnt it? Sure. But heres what would be even more fun: To see James Madison come back from the dead on Halloween and preach the First Amendment at the public-place Bible thumpers. Now that would be a big boo-hoo, indeed!

OPINION News broke last week that the U.S. government purposefully exposed hundreds of men in Guatemala to syphilis in ghoulish medical experiments conducted during the late 1940s. As soon as the story got out, President Barack Obama phoned President Alvaro Colom of Guatemala to apologize. Colom called the experiments an incredible violation of human rights. Colom also says his government is studying whether it can bring the case to an international court. The revelations came about through research conducted by Wellesley College medical historian Susan Reverby on the notorious Tuskegee syphilis study. The two former U.S. government research projects, in Tuskegee, Ala., and Guatemala equally noxious are mirror images of each other. Both point to the extremes to which ethics can be disregarded in the pursuit of medical knowledge, and serve as essential reminders that medical research needs constant supervision and regulation. Reverby is the author of the recently published book Examining Tuskegee, a comprehensive history of the Tuskegee syphilis study. Tuskegee, Ala., is in the heart of the Deep South. From 1932 until it was exposed by the press in 1972, the U.S. government conducted a long-term study on the effects of syphilis when left untreated. Four hundred men with syphilis were told that they would be given a special treatment for their bad blood. Unbeknownst to them, the men were given useless placebos, not the promised cure, and their debilitation caused by the untreated syphilis was tracked over decades. In its advanced stages, syphilis can disfigure and can cause dementia, blindness and extreme, chronic pain. It is a horrible way to die. Ten years into the Tuskegee Study, penicillin was found to cure syphilis. Yet the men were not told about the potential cure and were actively denied treatment when some of them sought it. In Tuskegee, infected men were left untreated. In Guatemala, the opposite happened. There, U.S. government researchers actively infected men in prison with syphilis, then treated them with penicillin to measure the antibiotics effect immediately after exposure. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease, and that is how the lead doctor, Dr. John Cutler of the U.S. Public Health Service, attempted to infect the prisoners. First, they hired prostitutes with syphilis to have sex with the prisoners. When transmission rates were not sufficiently high, the researchers lacerated the mens penises and applied syphilis-infected cotton to the wounds, or directly injected a fresh syphilitic mixture into their spines. Similar procedures were used on mental patients and soldiers. Ironically, the Guatemala study began in 1946, the same year as the Nuremberg tribunals, the first of which tried Nazi doctors accused of conducting heinous experiments on concentrationcamp prisoners. Half of those accused were put to death. The tribunals produced the Nuremberg Code, which set ethical standards for human medical experimentation and informed consent. Yet Nuremberg didnt seem to bother the U.S. researchers. Dr. Cutler, the head of the Guatemala project, later joined the Tuskegee Study. He said in a 1993 PBS NOVA documentary, It was important that they were supposedly untreated, and it would be undesirable to go ahead and use large amounts of penicillin to treat the disease, because youd interfere with the study. The U.S. government has frequently conducted experiments without the informed consent of the subjects. Women in Puerto Rico were given estrogen, at dangerous levels, when testing birth control pills. Researchers injected unwitting hospital patients with plutonium to study its effects on the human body. Dow Chemical, Johnson & Johnson and Pennsylvania prison authorities exposed inmates to chemicals, including dioxin, to test their effects. Subjects of a number of these experiments and others have died or had their lives indelibly harmed, all in the name of progress or profit. Researchers are quick to point out that such practices are a thing of the past and have led to strict guidelines ensuring informed consent of subjects. Yet efforts are being made to loosen restrictions on medical experimentation in prisons. We need to ask what informed consent means inside a prison, or in a poor community when money is used as an incentive to volunteer for research. Medical research should only happen with humane standards, informed consent and independent oversight, if the lessons of Nuremberg, Tuskegee and, now, Guatemala are to have meaning. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 800 stations in North America. She is the author of Breaking the Sound Barrier, recently released in paperback and now a New York Times bestseller.From Tuskegee to Guatemala via NurembergOf all the things the Newark, N.J., school system needs, the last of them is more money. Newark spends more per pupil than any other city in the country, and gets dismayingly little for it. For $22,000 per pupil more than twice the national average it graduates half its students. Its easy to imagine Newark spending $44,000 per pupil and arriving at the same dismaying outcome. Nonetheless, billionaire Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is showering money on a school system thats about as short on cash as he is. His $100 million grant is a vote of confidence in Newark Mayor Cory Booker and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, both compelling reformers. Even if they had a clear plan to fix Newarks schools, though, they wouldnt need to add another $100 million on top of the systems $940 million annual budget to do it. In microcosm, the Newark gift captures this moment in education reform. Theres earnest chatter about change and even some progress on the ground, at the same time that the bloated, ineffectual and corrupt status quo has never been more flush in federal dollars. The stimulus bill devoted $100 billion to education (about $80 billion of it for K-12). As Reason magazine notes, thats twice the Department of Educations annual budget. These funds have kept school systems from having to undertake wrenching changes, or any changes at all. They have helped goose federal spending on education from $37.5 billion in the last year of the Bush administration to $88.8 billion in the second year of the Obama administration, according to the calculations of Jay Greene of the University of Arkansas. While the private economy has shed 8 million jobs in a work force of 150 million during the downturn, the $550 billon education system has added jobs. Its the great wonder of the American economy, growing during recessions and regardless of its quality. If everyone in America were a teacher, wed truly be a workers paradise. The spending would be justified if it correlated with outcomes. It doesnt. We have tripled per-pupil spending during the past four decades while results have largely stayed flat. The money has been poured into personnel, on the theory that more teachers equal more learning. If the teachers are unexceptional, thats not true. The compensation structure of teachers with a large portion of their pay devoted to pensions and benefits tends to attract careerists looking to settle into jobs for life. The resulting insular culture of nonaccountability is nearly impossible to crack. In Washington, D.C., Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee has made an impressive go of it. Shes the heroine of the new, buzz-generating documentary Waiting for Superman. The films release may turn out only to be a perverse prelude to Rhees defenestration, since a political backlash against her system-rattling reforms has unseated her mayoral patron, Adrian Fenty. Whether the likes of Rhee succeed or not, we can be sure that the maw of the education system will continue to gobble up whatever resources are thrown at it. For decades, national education reform has meant more centralization and more federal spending. Maybe its time to try the opposite.

Mary Nichols spends her days in the realm of fantasy and imagination, surrounded by tiny clothes and accessories and dolls like Kit, an intrepid reporter manufactured by the American Girl company. If you dont take a shine to Kit, there are Elizabeth, Felicity, Kirsten, and many other dolls to choose from. Ms. Nichols spends her days at Its Just 4 Dolls, the store she opened last summer under the umbrella of her company, Its Just 4 Girls. The shop was inspired by her own fondness for dolls and by her 8-year-old daughter, Christianna. When Christianna first started getting into dolls, we went up to the American Doll store in New York. Its three stories high! she says, adding theres also a place where dolls can get their hair done and ears pierced. Her own first doll was one her grandmother handed down to her sister, which was then handed down to her after her sister joined a convent. And her first job was at a KB Toys in St. Louis over Christmas break, when she was 16. Ive always liked toys. My husband says Im a big kid, says Ms. Nichols, who is 49. Thats OK. He is, too. Were both big kids. She grew up playing with Barbie or baby dolls, but wished for more toy animals, inventory she has considered adding at her store.

They moved often when she was growing up, living in Ohio and Wisconsin as well as Missouri. Her parents eventually retired to Florida from El Paso, Tex. Ms. Nichols moved to Naples in the late 1980s. She tried several jobs, such as a dental assistant and at a day care center, before starting an interactive childrens puppet show. She brings the party aspect of that show to the store, hosting Friday movie nights and birthday parties there. Another aspect of her store was inspired by a trip to the Middleton Doll factory in Belpre, Ohio. She was in Ohio to see her oldest daughter graduate from college, and then-1-year-old Christianna was with her. At the Middleton factory there was a nursery looking into a maternity center where children could adopt a doll. She offers a similar adoption at Its Just 4 Dolls for children ages 5 to 10. A prospective mommy fills out an adoption form, including a short list of questions such as, Will you read to the baby? Will you change your baby when needed? The process takes about 45 minutes and includes a birth certificate. While the play adoption only hints at the real adult responsibility of child rearing, Ms. Nichols is throwing a baby shower on Saturday, Oct. 16, to benefit real soon-to-be mothers. People are welcome to come to Its Just 4 Dolls and bring a donation for Sunlight Home of Naples, a maternity home for pregnant women and teens in need. Ms. Nichols said there are two teenage girls at Sunlight now who are due in November. Ones having a girl, the other a boy. Sunlight Home has a wish list of items that would benefit those women and others things like photo albums, baby wipes and gas cards, for example. The list and more information about the home are at www.sunlighthome.org. I truly believe in what theyre doing, Ms. Nichols says. As for the dolls, its all in fun. She picks up a baby doll from the counter and holds it expertly. It looks surprisingly convincing not quite a living, breathing Pinocchio, but real enough.

Workers earn on average 50 cents for every 32-pound bucket of tomatoes they pick, meaning they must pick about 2.25 tons in a 10-hour day just to make minimum wage. A penny more means workers making $12,000 per year, an average income, might make $16,000 per year. The 4,000-member CIW, through its Campaign for Fair Food, has already persuaded food industry giants including McDonalds, Burger King, Subway, Yum Brands (Taco Bell and KFC), Aramark, Compass, Sodexo and Whole Foods to pay at least a penny more to tomato suppliers, who have agreed to pass it on to workers. Publix spokeswoman Shannon Patten says the company takes issue with the CIW asking it to pay an extra penny because it is above the market value of tomatoes. I think theres a huge difference here, between the Fair Trade principles touted on the coffee package and paying an extra penny per pound of tomatoes for fieldworkers in Immokalee, she says. We pay the price the coffee supplier asks, just like the tomatoes. Publix distances itself from the CIW, suggesting that the workers living conditions are their own business, that of their employers or law enforcement officials. If they need a penny more per pound that means thats something they should go back to their employer about, says Ms. Patten, not someone outside the relationship. We pay whatever the market value is. We arent paying the farmworkers. Ms. Patton calls the CIWs request a labor dispute, something she says Publix historically ignores. We have more than 35,000 products, she said. Tomatoes are just a small part of that product mix. A small part of the product mix for Publix, yet a more significant consideration for people such as Oscar Otzoy, a farmworker and member of CIW. There is no labor dispute, he says. Publix buys tomatoes from three farms that are willing to pass on the penny per pound. The CIW said Publix should be part of the solution to farmworker poverty. Publix is involved because theyre a major buyer of Florida tomatoes, says Leonel Perez, a farmworker and CIW member. With that power, Publix could decide to support fair wages and fair working conditions, the exact same thing theyre doing with their coffee suppliers. Rev. Buckley of InterFaith Action and leaders of local churches from different faiths have drafted a letter to Publix imploring them to pay the extra cent for a pound of tomatoes. We joyfully welcome Publixs enthusiasm for Fair Trade coffee and hope that Publix also will make a powerful contribution toward ending the human rights crisis in Floridas fields, the letter reads. The group, along with its partners from the CIW, students from Florida Gulf Coast University and others, plan to lead a protest outside a new Publix starting at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, at Marketplace at Pelican Bay, 8833 N. Tamiami Trail. Thats a half hour before Publix plans to hold a grand opening for its first-ever, 54,000-square-foot hybrid store there, which will feature its GreenWise brand. Were going to try to get some Fair Trade coffee for all the protestors, Mr. Buckley said.

A record number of 170 community leaders, partner agencies and major donors attended the Oct. 6 event launching the 53rd annual fundraising drive. The goal is to raise $2.3 million between now and March 31. Our objective this year is not only to continue with our conventional efforts, but as the demand for services provided by our agencies continues to increase dramatically, we believe it becomes even more important for us to make greater efforts reach out to the community and let people know how they can help, said Nancy Pelotte, who along with Clark Hill is co-chair of the campaign. Ms. Pelotte announced the drive already has more than $500,000 in pledges from Pacesetter companies, new donors and diverse local groups who have already made their annual commitments. Pacesetter companies represented at the breakfast included; Fifth Third Bank, Iberia Bank, Key Bank, Northern Trust Bank, Publix Supermarkets and Sun Trust Bank. The generosity these organizations show continues to amaze us, Mr. Hill said. He made special mention of Iberia Bank, the most recent addition to this elite group of donors, who came to us with tremendous enthusiasm and spirit.Dr. Leo Mediavilla was presented with the Above and Beyond Award for his volunteer work on behalf of the United Way. Ernie Bretzmann, United Way of Collier County president and CEO, said Dr. Mediavillas leadership and enthusiasm have enhanced the visibility of UWCC and opened new avenues for outreach to more and diverse parts of our community. Donations to the United Way support more than 300 programs and services provided by 30 partner agencies in Collier County that receive no local public funding. These programs touch more than 100,000 residents every year.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 Everyone has a squirrel story to tell. It often goes like this: Whenever I buy a squirrel-proof bird feeder, a squirrel finds a way to get in anyway! These clever animals are both cute and mischievous. Florida has three species of tree squirrels: the Eastern gray squirrel, the fox squirrel and the Southern flying squirrel. We also have one ground squirrel, the Eastern chipmunk. If you see a black squirrel, its just a color phase of the gray squirrel. The Eastern gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinenis), like all squirrels, is a rodent. All rodents gnaw their food using strong jaws and front teeth that grow continuously. (Interestingly, rabbits are not classified as rodents, even though their teeth also grow throughout their lives.) The squirrels large, bushy tail sets it apart from other rodents such as rats and mice. The Latin word for squirrel comes from the Greek words sika (shadow) and orua (tail). It means, One sitting in the shadow of its own tail. The squirrel uses its tail as a rudder when jumping or swimming, and also to signal its mood to other squirrels and distract a predator chasing it. A twitching tail means the animal is nervous and uneasy. In northern winters, gray squirrels wrap their tails around themselves to keep warm. In Florida, their tails become sunshades for most of the year. Eastern gray squirrels live from southern Ontario and Quebec to Texas and Florida. They need a thick canopy of trees for nesting and protection, but have learned to live in treed urban areas. While the population of many animals has declined because of human encroachment, the gray squirrel continues to multiply by adapting to its changing environment. Florida gray squirrels prefer hardwood forests (oak, hickories or pecans) or a mix of hardwood and pine. They live in old woodpecker holes, natural cavities or in nests they build out of leaves in treetops.Gray squirrels are primarily vegetarian, but theyre also opportunists. They eat acorns, hickory nuts, berries and pine seeds, but will also eat insects, caterpillars, fungi and occasionally bird eggs or young birds. This is something to consider if you have a bird feeder.Eastern gray squirrels do not hibernate, even in the north. They can locate buried or snowcovered food using their sense of smell rather than their memory. When startled, gray squirrels sound an alarm by a series of rapid clicks: tut-tut-tut.Its typical for several males to chase a female during the mating ritual. When males pursue the same female, they click their teeth together. The males are great bluffers, however; they sound fierce, but they dont fight.Then nest building begins as squirrels collect twigs for a base and add an outer layer of leaves. They line nests with closely woven grasses, shredded bark, moss or feathers. In Florida, gray squirrels have two litters of two to four young every year, one litter in January/February and another in the summer. Newborns are blind and nurse for at least a month. After about 2 months, theyre ready to be on their own.Mature gray squirrels weigh about a pound and are about 15 inches long, half being tail. Males and females are the same size. Weve all watched squirrels chasing each other. Did you ever notice they go up and down trees head first? And when you try to take their picture, they move around the tree, out of sight.Theres no doubt that these cute little critters are annoying around a bird feeder and can cause immense damage if trapped inside a porch or building. Even so, theyre great entertainers. I have stopped many times to watch their antics. I bet you have, too. Lee Belanger is a Master Naturalist who writes about Southwest Florida flora and fauna.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA24 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 TO YOUR HEALTH HEALTHY LIVINGPartnering is the operative word across the health care continuum today. That came through loud and clear at the recent Premier meeting of hospital CEOs in Washington, D.C. We learned from experts like the point person for White House health care change, Nancy-Ann DeParle, and from legislators who created the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka Healthcare Reform).Here in Naples, we are putting partnership to work, as we welcome the well-known and respected Anchor Health Centers 54 physicians, 12 nurse practitioners, eight physician assistants and more than 300 colleagues to the NCH family. Together since 1997, these competent and compassionate caregivers serve more than 100,000 patients.Our affiliation with Anchor follows our recent alliance with the Naples Heart Institute, with its 10 physicians, two nurse practitioners, three physician assistants and 42 colleagues, who joined NCH in March. As we work with our new colleagues to meld cultures and operating systems toward our mutual goal of providing the best possible care for the most people focusing on prevention, we are changing the face of health care in our community. Our partnering efforts reflect similar initiatives across the country to promote more efficient use of scarce health-care resources and more effective care for patients. Indeed, we have begun our partnership journey with strong local support. We have a governance structure initiated, led and managed by physicians. We have a hospital system board of directors that understands the urgency to evolve from a traditional inpatient model to a comprehensive health-care system focused on prevention. We have a strong informational technology backbone through our robust partnership with Cerner. We have a committed community, which has encouraged NCH progress since creating our not-for-profit hospital in 1955. And most importantly, we have more than 3,700 competent and compassionate colleagues working together. The kind of change we are experiencing isnt easy. Indeed, we will have many different methods of health-care delivery as we evolve. People have different health-care needs, which demand alternative solutions. Consequently, we will continue to practice in a pluralistic health-care environment. As Mrs. DeParle of the White House puts it, Anyone who works on health policy for more than half an hour sees how tough it is. Health care has constant innovation and delivery needs constant innovation also. The payment system is the hang up.Accordingly at NCH, we will work to convert the payment system from one compensated for high volume to one rewarded for high quality. In health-care economic terms, we are evolving from fee-for-service to global payments for episodes of care or for long-term chronic care. This means working to rid the system of chronic waste, which benefits no one and, in fact, puts our country at a tremendous global disadvantage. By partnering with all our colleagues, we will continue to enhance our communitys health-care quality and capacity and to eliminate waste and inefficiency. We welcome anyone who embraces our values of quality and efficiency and our ethics of professionalism and responsibility patients, physicians, nurses, caregivers of every kind, other organizations and members of the Naples community at large. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Partnerships will help change the face of health care Partnering istheoperativeword allenWEISS allen.weiss@nchmd.org Cancer treatment is topic of talk at Bentley VillageDrs.

Cancer survivors and those undergoing treatment are especially welcome. The 2011 Relay For Life will take place at Gulfview Middle School on April 15-16. Teams already are forming among local buinesses, schools, clubs, families, friends, hospitals, churches and service organizations. The Naples Relay has for several years been the number one Relay For Life out of 347 similar events in Florida, and is consistently among the top relays nationwide in terms of fundraising. The 2010 event raised more than $525,000. Relay For Life is also about celebrating and remembering cancer survivors. More than 500 survivors and caregivers were honored at the 2010 Naples event when they walked together in the opening lap.

STRAIGHT TALK Size does count when it comes toportion control SEE TO YOUR HEALTH, A25 Bigger is better has become something of a mantra in our society, and nowhere is that more evident than in the growth of food portions over the past two decades. Twenty years ago, the typical bagel measured 3 inches in diameter and contained 140 calories. Today, that bagel is likely to be 6 inches in diameter and carry 350 calories. Similarly, the usual restaurant serving of spaghetti and meatballs used to be a 500-calorie combination of one cup of spaghetti with sauce and three small meatballs. Today, the average consists of twice that amount of pasta and three large meatballs, delivering a whopping 1,025 calories.Even the seemingly heart-healthy, dietfriendly turkey sandwich has undergone a drastic makeover. Twenty years ago, it was served with lettuce and tomato on two slices of bread and had 320 calories. Today, its likely to come on a sub roll and drag along 820 calories.Given such changes, its not surprising that the United States is facing an obesity epidemic. According to Learning ZoneXpress, an online resource for nutrition education, 61 percent of Americans are overweight, and the number of overweight people in the world 1.1 billion now equals the number of undernourished people.Mindless consumptionFast food restaurants are often fingered as the culprits who started us down this heavy road, and anyone who still remembers the size of the hamburgers first sold by such chains as McDonalds can verify that portions at these establishments have grown consistently bigger. What these restaurants offered (and continue to offer) was inexpensive, consistent food served up quickly. The latter is a key ingredient. As peoples lives got busier, finding cheap and fast ways to get through meals became more and more attractive. The high fat content made the food taste good, and the consistent quality meant you got what you expected. I think sometimes were not paying attention when we eat, says Mary McElligott, diabetes program coordinator at NCH Healthcare Systems von Arx Diabetes Center of Excellence and Nutritional Health. Restaurants arent the only places where mindless consumption of oversize portions takes place. The labels on packaged foods can easily mislead people into thinking they are consuming far fewer calories than they actually are. Lays Cheddar & Sour Cream chips, for example, proudly proclaims grams of trans fat on the front of its package, making it seem a healthy choice. The nutritional label on the back advises that one serving has 160 calories not too bad until you also notice that one serving is equal to about 15 chips. The 10.5-ounce bag contains approximately 11 servings. So if you polish off the bag while watching TV, youre consuming 1,760 calories. Or take a look at an 18.4-ounce bag of peanut butter M&Ms. A bright green label lets you know whats inside: 240 calories, 15 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 20 grams of sugar and 90 milligrams of sodium. What this handy panel doesnt include is the information that these numbers are all based on a single serving about a quarter of a cup. The entire bag has about a dozen SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFrom NCH Healthcare System SEE CONTROL, A25

When you do the math, the numbers become alarming. Standard serving sizes were created by the FDA in the early 1990s, based on surveys of Americans eating habits taken during the previous two decades. But since people routinely underestimate how much they eat, many nutritionists question the validity of the serving sizes currently used. After all, who eats only a small handful of chips? At this point in time, educating the American public to better understand food labels should be our primary goal, NCHs Ms. McElligott says. Our job, as consumers should be to try to pick the best foods for us. Were not at a point where people are competing to provide healthy foods. That would be my ideal.Reclaiming controlSo how do we avoid consuming more calories than we want or need? Obviously, maintaining awareness of what and how much were eating is a good place to start.Learning ZoneXpress recommends learning to easily and readily recognize a healthy portion. A 3-ounce serving of meat, for example, is about the size of a CONTROLFrom page A24deck of playing cards. A teaspoon of oil has the same diameter as a quarter. A bagel or roll should not be larger than a 6-ounce can of tuna. A medium-sized fresh fruit is the size of a tennis ball, and a cup of vegetables is about the size of a light bulb. Keeping those images in mind when cooking or dining out can help you limit the amount you eat. Controlling our exposure to food is also important. A report from the Centers for Disease Control notes that people frequently blame their lack of willpower for not being able to maintain a healthy diet, when its more likely that our automatic responses to ubiquitous cues to eat and the availability of cheap, convenient, calorie-dense foods are responsible. Ms. McElligott agrees with that assessment. I think visibility plays a huge role, she says. We are surrounded by food cues all day. Television is particularly problematic. I think people lose the ability to down-regulate calories because they are surrounded by food all the time.She recommends keeping food put away at home and only bringing it out at set times. At work, even putting candy in an opaque container rather than a clear one can mute the call of mindless nibbling. Even better, leave the food in the lunch room.Ms. McElligott would also like to see Americans redefine our relationship with food, moving from easy, empty calories to foods that provide both good nutrition and a sense of satiety. Be sure youre getting the fruit and vegetables you need before you indulge in fast food, she advises. Above all, watch those portions. If you do, you might soon see a slimmer new you.

Good grooming is about more than keeping your pet looking beautiful and clean-smelling, although those are certainly pleasant payoffs. Regular grooming relaxes the dog whos used to it, and it becomes a special time shared between you both. A coat free of mats, burrs and tangles and skin free of fleas and ticks are as comfortable to your dog as clean clothes fresh from the wash are to you. It just makes you feel good, and the effect is the same for your pet. Some added benefit for you: Giving your dog a tummy rub after every session is sure to relax you (and your dog, of course) and ease the stress of your day. And for allergy sufferers, keeping a dog clean may make having a dog possible. BY DR. MARTY BECKER & GINA SPADAFORI_______________________________Universal UclickKeeping pets clean and huggable is good medicinemore involved. Breeds such as collies, chows, Keeshonden and Alaskan malamutes are double-coated, which means they have a downy undercoat underneath harsher long hair. The down can mat like a layer of felt against the skin if left untended. To prevent this, divide the coat into small sections and brush against the grain from the skin outward, working from head to tail, section by section. In the spring and fall the big shedding times youll end up with enough of that fluffy undercoat to make a whole new dog. Keep brushing and think of the benefits: The fur you pull out with a brush wont end up on the furniture, and removing the old stuff keeps your pet cooler in the summer and lets new insulation come in for the winter. Silky-coated dogs, such as Afghan hounds, cockers and Maltese, also need constant brushing to keep tangles from forming. As with the double-coated dogs, work with small sections at a time, brushing from the skin outward, and then comb back into place with the grain for a glossy, finished look. Coats of this type require so much attention that having a groomer keep the dogs trimmed to a medium length is often more practical. Curly and wiry coats, such as those on poodles and terriers, need to be brushed weekly, working against the grain, and then with it. Curly coats need to be clipped every six weeks; wiry ones, two or three Beauty is more than skin-deep when it comes to your dog. Keeping your pet well-groomed not only gives you a cleansmelling companion, it also helps keep your dog more comfortable and allows you to spot health problems before they become serious, even life-threatening. How important is grooming to your pets comfort? Consider a simple hair mat, so easy to overlook. Have you ever had your hair in a ponytail that was just a little too tight? A mat can feel the same way to your dog a constant pull on the skin. Try to imagine those all over your body and you have a good idea how uncomfortable an ungroomed coat can be. Your dog need never know what a mat feels like if you keep him brushed and combed but thats just the start of the health benefits. Regular grooming allows you to look for lumps, bumps and injuries, while clearing such things as mats and ticks from his coat. Follow up with your veterinarian on any questionable masses you find, and you may detect cancer early enough to save your pets life. For short-haired breeds, keeping skin and coat in good shape is easy. Run your hands over him daily, a brush over him weekly, and thats it. For other breeds, grooming is a little PET TALES Groom for health Regular brushing not only keeps pets more comfortable, but also helps catch health problems early.

In an ancient Egyptian story an eagle snatches the sandal of the lovely and rosy-cheeked Rhodopsis, and drops it onto the lap of the king who is presiding in an open-air court. Rhodopsis, like Cinderella who comes as a later incarnation, becomes united to the royal one. Even the Internet is not in want of a shoe. Here we can find websites of artists that Google map and photograph myriad single shoes littering roadways and hanging from trees and electric lines. Where is the other black boot, flip-flop, sneaker, red stiletto heel? Perhaps the other shoes have found their way, time travelling, to fifteenth century Netherlands. Perhaps they are in solidarity, I and I, with the wooden shoes, the sabots, thrown by textile workers into the newly automated machines that threaten to take away their work. In nineteenth century France the word for wooden shoe became slang meaning unskilled worker. Today this shoe word is deliberate subversion, the sabotage of saboteurs. Shantideva, the eighth century Indian Buddhist monk, was seen as a subverter. Other monks saw him as lazy and corrupt, and so named him the monk of the three realizations, i.e., sleeping, eating, and defecating. The limitation of their attribution became apparent. Shantideva wrote a much renowned text delineating the path from first thought to complete awakening. And he extolled the wisdom of shoes: Where would I possibly find enough leather with which to cover the surface of the earth? But just leather on the soles of my shoes is equivalent to covering the earth with it. Walk a mile in these shoes. Experience the insole, the internal bottom. Experience the outsole that contacts the ground. Experience the midsole, which lies between in and out. It is the midsole that most interests this pirate. That transitional connector between I and I. That elusive illusion is bridge between what is seen as inherently exterior and what is ultimately the ground of total possibility. We allow shoe to drop onto the other foot. Completion comes in the experiencing of the other. We fill some ones shoes. If this shoe fits, wear it. But what shoe is a shoe in? The word shoe does not only point to outer foot coverings. It also indicates a myriad of devices. Devices that retard motion. Or devices that guide movement. Or perhaps we might be indicating the milelong point of view of the other. Or merely a box that holds nothing but packs of cards. On that holy ground Moses, who like Cinderella achieved recognition unexpectedly after obscurity and neglect, had a question. Who should I say I spoke with? I am that which I am. The pure awareness of bare attention, shoe-less shoe-in of in, out, and mid-soles, sings groundless and grounded. Someone else is speaking with my mouth, but Im listening only to my heart. Ive made shoes for everyone, even you, while I still go barefoot. Bob Dylan, I and IIn Iyaric, the English dialect created by Rastafari, the term I and I replaces first person pronouns. I and I signifies the oneness of persons. The self is united with the divine; and, the self is united with the other. In such a space of ultimate union, on such sacred ground, the custom is to remove ones shoes. In the Hebrew scriptures, in the Book of Exodus, Moses sees a bush that is on fire but is not consumed by the flames. And he hears a voice that tells him to take off his sandals because the ground on which he stands is holy. The word holy comes from Old English word which means complete, whole, free of defect. On the ground of whole, non-defective union we can place our naked feet. Here, on holy ground, our feet are non-dual, not separated from the earth. I and I has no need to be shoedin, to be wrapped in animal skins dominantly ripped away from animal bodies in the pursuit of safe separation.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 Elizabeth Fox, M.D.Dear Dr. Fox: I am a 57 year old woman and am so disappointed when I look in the mirror and see how I have aged. I know I need a facelift, but how do I make sure that I just look younger and dont look like Ive had any work done? Its important to understand how your facelift surgery is performed. In order to remain looking exactly like yourself without any distortion, your facial muscles and connective tissues need to be elevated to their original position. Particular attention must be paid to the jowls the corners of the mouth, the neck, and of course, the eyes. We pay special attention to these areas as they show the most signi cant signs of aging. In order to avoid looking like youve had work done, you have to choose a surgeon who can elevate your tissues to their original vertical positions without displacing them at a new angle toward your ear or towards your cheeks. Q: A:BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON Bonita Springs-based startup Gulf City Solar is marketing a line of ultra-thin and light solar panels, proprietary regulator settings and ultra-portable packaging that are easy for people of all ages to carry, install and use. The companys first product was solar conversion kit for electric golf carts. Unlike solar kits that use heavy glass panels or require cart owners to replace their roofs, Gulf City Solars kit uses a thin film-like panel weighing about nine pounds. Owners can peel off the double-sided tape and stick the panel onto their carts. The regulator that controls energy production and flow constantly recharges a carts battery, enabling more drive time and less reliance on electricity. With its first product off and running, the company turned its attention to developing a solar power generator. Using the same thin, film-like panels and proprietary technology, the generator packs enough power for essentials like lamps, computers, televisions, and fans, along with limited television, refrigerator and hot plate use into a carry-on suitcase-sized package. A day-long charge can also power medical equipment through the night. Products range in price from $1,440 to $2,250 and are eligible for tax credits. The company is also working to develop are energy cost saver boxes, water purification systems, and aeration systems. The Southwest Regional Manufacturers Association welcomes Dr. Shihab Asfour, professor and chairman of the Department of Industrial Engineering and director of the Industrial Assessment Center at the University of Miami, at 6 p.m. Wednesdayu, Oct. 20, at Edison State College in Fort Myers. The assessment center is one of 26 centers supported by the U.S. Department of Energy at universities across the country. Dr. Asfour has been performing industrial green assessments for more than a decade, saving manufacturers an average of $55,000 a year. He will discuss a long list of corrective items he has found over the past 10 years and will give specific examples that can save businesses thousands of dollars. He will also explain the assessment process and how other companies can benefit from a review of their practices. Dr. Asfours team spends eight hours going through every facet of the company: hooking up electrical watt meters, analyzing trash, poring through water, electrical and waste bills. They return to the plant to collect their instruments with one week of second-by-second data collected. When the team convenes at the university laboratory, the real work begins analyzing, calculating and putting together a massive report with detailed recommendations. The assessments are free to qualified manufacturers, paid for by the U.S. Department of Energy. The grant reimburses the university for its full expenses, which are generally in excess of $10,000. Qualifying for the free assessment begins with a simple application. All manufacturers that meet the guidelines will be approved. The public is invited to the meeting. Reservations are required. A buffet dinner will be served. Cost is $20 for members and $25 for non-members. For more information, call 634-4295 or visit www. srma.net.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB4 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 Martha Bibby is one of those rare people whose left brain and right brain seem to operate with equal (and considerable) efficiency.Ms. Bibby, who arrived in Naples eight years ago as a senior vice president and director of corporate compliance for FNB Corp., has forged a reputation as a banker, entrepreneur and administrator. But she also possesses a highly creative side, as evidenced by her longstanding interest in fashion (she studied to be a fashion merchandiser) and her co-founding of a company that hopes to revolutionize the way people look at socks. (Yes, socks, as in those things we put on our feet.) First, about the socks. Ms. Bibby and her friend, Kathleen Fleming, were spurred to design a new kind of sock because Ms. Fleming could not locate suitable ones for her boyfriend. She wanted a sock that wouldnt show in her boyfriends shoes, Ms. Bibby recalls. We couldnt find anything, so we thought why dont we design something and see what happens. Ms. Bibby and Ms. Fleming whipped out their scissors and began reconfiguring socks and experimenting with different fabrics. That was roughly three years ago, and the result is a company called Toeds that sells socks that cover rough roughly half of a foot and dont show when shoes are worn. The socks have been a hit with golfers and others. But theyre just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Ms. Bibby still runs Bibby Inc., a management consulting firm, and she only recently stepped away as program administrator for the Leadership Collier Foundation. She was a member of the Leadership Collier Class of 2007. A native of Deland, she moved to Naples from Jacksonville, where she had worked with Barnett Banks, Bank of America and Bombardier Capital. Since her arrival here, she has been active in a variety of causes, including PACE Center for Girls-Collier at Immokalee and the Juvenile Detention Center Community Advisory Board. She holds a degree in information management from Jacksonville University and studied fashion at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. I know information management and fashion dont seem to go together, she says with a laugh. But those are areas that really interest me. Asked to assess her strengths, she says she believes she has the ability to bring people together. She adds: I get my greatest satisfaction in using whatever knowledge and skills I have to help other people, particularly young people, and that has made working with young people in Leadership Collier and the girls at PACE particularly satisfying. Bill Cornwell I know information management and fashion dont seem to go together, but those are areas that really interest me. martha BIBBY rarepeople As a first-year medical student Aurora Estevez found her calling: The miracle of life. Before medical school I was thinking about emergency medicine, but that changed when I became pregnant with my daughter, says Dr. Estevez, who left an obstetrics and gynecology practice in Boca Raton to become NCH Healthcare Systems chief medical officer and vice president in January 2008. I was interested in embryology and the more I looked into the ob-gyn field I realized it captured some of the same elements of sink or swim and think on your feet as emergency medicine. Plus, I already had my first year under my belt. As CMO and a member of the senior executive management team, Dr. Estevez is involved in the big picture of the nonprofit system, whose 3,800 employees she says share this real sense of social responsibility and taking care of everybody. She works with other administrators on issues as diverse as quality of care, patient safety, internal peer reviews and equipment purchases, and leads its 600 staff physicians in developing and implementing system-wide initiatives for both hospitals. During her two years with NCH, Dr. Estevez has identified three issues she deems as important to the systems ongoing success: The start-up of a residency program that could have NCH designated as a teaching hospital by 2013 or 2014; a paperless, electronic medical record-keeping system thats about 80 percent there; and continuing the journey that began when NCH was recently ranked a top 100 hospital. Its an administrative role her younger self probably couldnt have foreseen. I absolutely loved patient care until the day I stopped, she says. I really enjoyed private practice but I couldnt have done it for another 20 years. Things had evolved. That evolution plus a state of constant change guides the doctors business philosophy: Expect the unexpected, she says. It doesnt matter how much you think youve got it figured out, theres always a curve ball. The statement might seem a tad bit ironic coming from a woman who as the child of a Miami-area pediatrician knew she wanted a career in science and as a young woman who met and married her college sweetheart. When I was very young I thought I might be a biologist and study animals in the wild. Her daughter, now a law student at Harvard (Dr. Estevez received her masters of business from rival Yale), and international banker husband have been Dr. Estevezs constants for decades. Ive been married to the same man for 27 years and we still like each other, she says with a laugh. My daughter is my pride and joy, the heart and soul of my existence. She puts things in perspective for me; anything else I do is just icing on the cake. Nanci Theoret It doesnt matter how much you think youve got it figured out, theres always a curve ball. aurora ESTEVEZ uroraEsteve z Around Southwest Florida, shes known as Kristin Cartwright. But in the late 1990s, she was recognized throughout the world as Buster Lutgert, one of the first women professional wakeboarders.I had a lot of fun with wakeboarding, Ms. Cartwright, age 35, recalls. I traveled all over the world, sponsored by all sorts of companies. After five years in the sport, she and husband Dayle settled down and began a family that includes daughter Ella, 6, who attends Community School of Naples, and son Noah, 5. But the water is never far away. The Cartwrights, along with partner Nick Demasi, own Revolution Cable Park in North Fort Myers, where riders can wakeboard, kneeboard, waterski or wakeskate. Ms. Cartwright also uses her degree a bachelor of arts in business administration from the University of Florida as director of shopping center marketing for the Lutgert Companies, the family business. She also oversees marketing for three of the companys real estate projects: The Highrises at Bonita Bay, Estuary at Grey Oaks and The Strada at Mercato). I like that its always changing, with many events going on she shares of her work promoting the Village on Venetian Bay, Promenade at Bonita Bay, and Mercato. If work and family arent enough, Ms. Cartwright carries on the family legacy of volunteerism and philanthropy. Grandfather Ray Lutgert was a major supporter of various community projects, including Naples Community Hospital, and father Scott Lutgert is a founder of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. The Lutgert family also gave Florida Gulf Coast University $5 million for its business school. Having young children helps Ms. Cartwright focus her volunteer activiIf work and family arent enough, Ms. Cartwright carries on the family legacy of volunteerism and philanthropy. kristin CARTWRIGHT k n o w n a s ties on providing opportunities for the youth in Collier County. She is active with the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples, two years ago co-chairing the Yabba Island Pirate Ball that raised more than $400,000. She also helped run the Great Venetian Duck Race at The Village to benefit CMON, has served on the board of the Education Foundation of Collier County and is involved with the foundations If the Shoe Fits fundraiser. She helps out at Community School as well. She grew up in Naples, moving to Ocala in fifth grade but returning to graduate from Barron Collier High School in 1993. She considers the Lutgert family name and legacy an opportunity more than a pressure. Im very proud of what my family established here in this community, she says. I see a lot of people giving back so generously to this community, and I hope that my generation will continue to do that and see the value it brings.

But people involved in local charitable efforts often see another side of life here. neofthe Ms. Gomez loves her job, which involves working with 86 volunteers who mentor 96 students. All of my experiences here have been amazing, she says. The families and the people I work with are amazing. We are really making a difference in the lives of these children. Beyond matching mentors up with students and ensuring that all runs smoothly, Ms. Gomez mentors two teens herself, helping guide them and serving as a role model. Shes mentored a Haitian-American girl since she was in seventh grade. Shes now a sophomore at Immokalee High School. Its so exciting to see the changes in her, her confidence level and self-esteem, she says. At first she was very shy. It was hard to have a conversation. Over time, shes gained trust in me and started to open up. Weve become very good friends. She comes to me for advice; I go to her for advice. Its been so satisfying she took on another student a couple of weeks ago. They are so appreciative of the new things were showing them, she says. Their eyes are being opened to the possibilities that can change their lives. Liz Allbritten, The Immokalee Foundation executive director, says, Lois is the perfect person for to serve as the Take Stock in Children mentor coordinator. She has a great passion for the program, and has advanced it by getting more mentors involved. The need for mentors is the one component that keeps the program from growing more rapidly. Were hoping to induct 32 new students into the program, but we cant do that without 32 mentors, Ms. Gomez says. We have the scholarships. For anybody who wants to get involved here in Immokalee, we have lots of kids. Lynn HunterKaleigh Grover has had such an experience. Through her board position with the Collier Building Industry Association, she participated in one of the groups first toy drives for Immokalee children. At that time, the students made wish lists. Ms. Grover recalls that one boy desperately wanted cowboy boots, so she purchased those along with basic necessities such as underwear and toiletries. As the boy surveyed his gifts during the holiday party the group hosted, he reached down and grabbed not the boots, but a toothbrush. I got my own toothbrush! he exclaimed as he ran excitedly around the room. Then, unselfishly, he asked if the group had anything he could give to his sister. Theres a misconception that all the children here are spoon-fed, but its far from true, Ms. Grover asserts. Over 90 percent of children at this school in Immokalee are on special assistance for breakfast and lunch at school. Today, CBIA purchases extra toys for the parents to wrap up and put under the family tree, and Ms. Grover remains involved in the holiday effort and on the associations board. Born and raised in Tampa, Ms. Grover majored in business at Auburn University and got into hotel management, including three years at a Colorado ski lodge. She and husband Michael moved to Naples in 1986, when Ms. Grover got a job as assistant director of catering at the Registry Resort. She worked there for 14 years, leaving her position as national sales manager to work as account manager at Gulfshore Life. For the past four years, she has been associate publisher of Naples Illustrated. In her media roles, she participates in many charitable activities, currently serving as chair of the board of directors of the Education Foundation of Collier County, which she praises for the variety of programs it provides for children. I found my home there, she states. The mother of Sara, a sophomore at University of Central Florida, and Alleigh, a senior at Gulf Coast High School, Ms. Grover enjoys working for the good of the community, especially its children. I love Collier County, she says. Its a solid, very family-oriented and giving community. I try to wake up every day with a smile. Im a happy person, and I strive to make other peoples day happy, too.

Marissa brought to Naples the very best of fashion Marissa Hartington was so busy preparing for the coming season and traveling to Europe in search of new fashions to mark her boutiques 35th anniversary, she wasnt able to squeeze in an interview. But thats bound to happen when your shop is a darling of national fashion editors, and designers like Michael Kors and Valentino want you to sell their creations. Mrs. Hartington doesnt just sell the trends, she makes them. Walk inside her Marissa Collections on Third Street South and the pages of Vogue, Town & Country and other major fashion magazines suddenly leap to life. The always poised and polished owner and founder (along with husband Burt) seems forever in juggling mode jet setting around the world, attending fashion shows and discovering new designers and jewelry all for the sake of giving Naples the best single source for haute couture, even jeans, T-shirts and makeup. Mrs. Hartingtons keen fashion sense makes Marissa Collections a favorite for Naples power women and a fashionable first stop for those in search of an outfit that rivals New York City or Paris. Her secret is most likely that eye of an artist very few of us possess. It helps, too, that she counts people like Mr. Kors, Mr. Valentino and Oscar de la Renta among her fashion-forward friends. Marissa Collections has sold Mr. Kors designs for 26 years, making her the design houses longest-running independent retailer. Testimonials on the boutiques web site read like a whos who in the fashion world. Marissa brought to Naples the very best of fashion, scribes shoe maven Manolo Blahnik. She has one of the keenest eyes in the business. She tweaks each collection in her own special European way. Says Roberto Cavalli: Marissa with her exquisite taste and expert fashion eye always selects the best items in my collection. She knows her clients and delivers outstanding customer service. I wish we had Marissa in Italy.

Burt Hartington handles the business end. This fall, Marissa Collections launches a year-long celebration for its 35th anniversary in business and ultimately honors the woman herself. Nanci TheoretFranny Kain defines herself as a woman of endurance, commitment, passion, integrity and leadership. Those traits have guided her well for four years as executive director of Fun Time Early Childhood Academy, an organization that is almost synonymous with Ms. Kain herself.When she speaks, her words are blended with passion for the nonprofit preschool of which she is in charge. I believe so wholeheartedly in the mission, she says. Fun Time is truly what I am about; it is the joy of my life. The love fest began about 10 years ago. While on an extended visit to Naples, Ms. Kain accepted a position with Childcare of Southwest Florida. It fit her background perfectly: She holds a bachelors of science in special education and elementary education and a masters degree in guidance and psychology. Her first assignment was to help improve the quality of the program at Fun Time Early Childhood Academy. After a year, the preschool was stable and Ms. Kain returned to the headquarters office of Childcare of Southwest Florida. But Fun Time and its mission of providing safe, affordable, quality childcare and early education for the children of low-income working families remained in her heart.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB8 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 Time as executive director, she says. The preschools dilapidated, double-wide trailer had been devastated by Hurricane Wilma. Under her leadership, Fun Time remained open and funding was secured for a new home. Today, the academy occupies a state-of-the art facility just around the corner from the original site, enrolls 82 preschoolers ages 2-5 and is nationally accredited. In 2011, Fun Time Early Childhood Academy will celebrate 50 years in Naples. The goal for the next 50 years is to better serve more families, and thats where Ms. Kains vision comes to the forefront. We cannot grow any more on this property, she says. But there is a small, unused gravel area adjacent to our land, and if we could expand into that small space, we could serve many more families and children. The community needs us to serve more than 82 children. She believes life experiences have given her the maturity and confidence to count on herself and on her ability to find and coordinate others for a team effort. Her philosophy is that no one person can do it all, but together a team can succeed. Its a wonderful lesson to impart to everyone, but especially the children, lucky enough to be in her midst. Rhona Saunders 5 POWER WOMEN N OME N O M E N 2010 W OME WOM E IN COLLIER Fun Time is truly what I am about; it is the joy of my life.As a circuit court judge, Elizabeth Krier has presided over some heart-wrenching cases involving children and families.Shes witnessed the worst of people, yes, but shes also seen loving parents reunited with their children, and foster parents willing to accept the lifelong commitment of raising an adopted child. Shes nearly three years into her elected six-year term as Collier Countys 20th Judicial Circuit judge, and for the past year has been the decisionmaker for dependency court cases involving the safety of children, probate, guardianship, truancy, mental health and non-criminal domestic violence. Its a role the jurist rotated into after serving the first 18 months of her term in criminal court. She describes her court as a very hopeful court because of its ability to steer parents to services and programs that will help them become better people, better parents. Ive seen success stories, people changing their lives, and that makes me happy, she says. Even when we have to remove children from the family, theyre adopted into loving families I always tell parents who are giving consent to have their children adopted that they have a choice, that its not about being a bad parent. This is about the choice youve made for the best of your child. This niche suits Judge Krier well. As an attorney in private practice, she was boardcertified in marital and family law and heard similar cases as a circuit magistrate the two years before her election. A native of Chicago and a practicing attorney for 21 years, she relocated in 1985 to Naples, which had just 10 other female attorneys at the time. She says law was always a career path she seemed destined to follow. I think I knew in fourth grade, she says. One of my friends was unfairly accused of something. I felt I wanted to make things fair for people. Ive always been concerned about helping people, and Ive always been inspired by public service and making a contribution. Law, she says, is the fundamental glue that holds us all together. It defines us in terms of Americans. Without this system there would be chaos. The system is not perfect, she allows, but it does work. Judge Krier says shed be happy to ride out her legal career on the dependency bench. Appellate work would be interesting, but personally I want to be more connected to helping people, she says. She also recognizes that dependency court needs to have a consistency. Some of these cases take one to two years to resolve. As long as Im allowed to stay here, I will. As part of that hopeful court philosophy, Judge Krier is involved in judicial committees exploring additional services and programs to benefit children and families. I like being part of these innovations, she says. Judge Krier is married to a fellow attorney; they have four children among them. Families are the basic molecules of society, she believes. And if we dont strengthen that, everything falls apart. Nanci TheoretIn her role as The New Millenniums Dear Abby, April Masini has seen it or, more accurately read it all. Ms. Masini is the queen of online dating and relationship advice, and she says the variety of people seeking her thoughts on romantic bliss and dating etiquette truly is startling. I get 13-year-olds writing to me at three in the morning, says Ms. Masini, and then I get people in their 70s and older asking for advice about dating and relationships. I have to think Viagra has a lot to do with the number of older people who are writing me. She came to the advice game almost by default, after initially making her mark as a model, actress and producer of projects for television and the big screen. She counts the iconic Baywatch television series as one of her many successful ventures. While living in Los Angeles, Ms. Masini taught a course at the Learning Annex there that dealt with dating. She thought little of it until some of the attendees encouraged her to set down her musings in book form. Since she had experience as a scriptwriter, Ms. Masini was not daunted by the idea. The result has been four best-selling books with titles like Date Out of Your League and Think & Date Like A Man. Buoyed by her success as an author, Ms. Masini branched out into the column-writing field. Its been like a runaway train, she concedes. In four years there have been four books and 1,800 columns. With people living longer and with the high divorce rate, more people than ever are dating, she says. The market for advice in that area is only growing. Ms. Masini spent most of her time working in California and Hawaii, but moved to Naples four years ago to be near her mother, who lived on Marco Island and was battling ovarian cancer. Ms. Masinis mother died two months ago. Honestly, I never would have considered living in Naples had it not been for my mother being down in this area, she says. Shes unsure if she will remain in Naples, and shes not even certain she will continue to concentrate on doling out dating advice on www.askapril. com. Im looking for a new challenge, she says. I dont know what that might involve or where it might take me. God works in strange ways, you know. Bill Cornwell JoAnne Kuehner, founder and president of the board of the Naples-based nonprofit organization Hope for Haiti, is a compassionate, committed humanitarian. Krierhas u m s elizabeth KRIER april MASINI Families are the basic molecules of society,and if we dont strengthen that, everything falls apart. Im looking for a new challenge, I dont know what that might involve or where it might take me. God works in strange ways, you know. jo anne KUEHNERFor two decades, she has lovingly and unselfishly dedicated herself to improving the quality of life for the poorest of the poor. Twenty-one years ago, when she and her husband were searching for a warmer climate for health reasons, they found Naples and instantly knew this was the place for them. Were not a glitzy kind of couple, she explains, and Naples is the closest Ive come to fairyland. Around the same time, as a member of the board of AmeriCares, Mrs. Kuehner traveled to Haiti on an emergency airlift mission. Although she was an experienced world traveler, the unimaginable poverty she witnessed in Haiti impacted her deeply. It became her passion to help improve the quality of life for the people of Haiti, and particularly the children, through education, nutrition and health care. And so, Hope for Haiti was born. Today, Hope for Haiti helps to educate more than 10,000 children in 40 schools, provides $30 million worth of medication and medical supplies to more than 40 facilities annually, and assists the United Nations and others in hurricane and earthquake relief efforts. The humanitarian programs, schools and clinics are overflowing, local Haitians are being hired, and there is hope for the future. Promise, commitment and purpose have always defined Mrs. Kuehners life. She has taken vows as a Dame of Malta, a lay religious order of the Catholic Church whose goal is to assist the downtrodden of the world, without distinction of race or religion. My focus is on the poor and the sick, she says. Its a very important part of my life and the way I structure my life. Family is also a priority. She has been married to Carl for 48 years and fondly describes the relationship as the odd couple. They have four children and 10 grandchildren; the oldest granddaughter, Tiffany, is also involved in Hope for Haiti and recently took her marriage vows on a raft floating on a small lake at the Kuehners vacation home in the Poconos. Friends and family describe Mrs. Kuehner as a woman of promise, commitment and purpose, and as a dedicated, creative and passionate leader. Im my own person, she says, and Im living the life I believe. Rhona Saunders My focus is on the poor and the sick, its a very important part of my life and the way I structure my life.

Anne Welsh McNulty is perhaps one of the most influential and respected figures in philanthropy in Southwest Florida. The managing partner of JBK Partners, which specializes in investment management and philanthropy, she is also 2011 grant chair and trustee for the Naples Winter Wine Festival. In her position as grant chair, Mrs. McNulty will have considerable influence over how monies raised by the festival, which takes place in January, are apportioned. Recognized as one of the premier fundraising events in the nation, the festival has raised nearly $83 million since 2001. The funds have been used to ease the plight of underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County. Last years festival raised about $8 million. But Mrs. McNultys philanthropic efforts are not limited to the NWWF. In 2007, she established the John P. McNulty Prize in honor of her late husband, who died suddenly in 2005. The John P. McNulty Prize carries a $100,000 award, which is presented to fellows of the Aspen Global Leadership Network. Finalists receive $10,000. The McNulty Prize, according to Aspen, aims to galvanize efforts to address the foremost social, economic and political challenges of our time by recognizing the best of the exceptional leadership projects undertaken by the fellows of the Aspen Global Leadership Network. There also is a John P. McNulty Scholarship for Excellence in Science and Math, which is awarded to outstanding female students at Saint Josephs University in Philadelphia, the late Mr. McNultys alma mater. McNulty Scholars are those young women who dare to be the best, Mrs. McNulty said in announcing the 2010 recipients. John exuded energy, creativity and ambition. Through this program, we hope to ignite the same extraordinary spirit in others. Before John and Anne McNulty founded JBK Partners, Mrs. McNulty was a managing director and senior executive at Goldman Sachs in the Hedge Fund Strategies Group. She earned her MBA in finance and insurance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and was valedicto-As you might guess from her name or from her mischievous blue eyes, Colleen Murphy is 100 percent Irish. This Syracuse native, who recently was appointed president and chief executive officer of the Community Foundation of Collier County, uses inner strength born of being the oldest of six children to realize her desire to succeed in ever greater measure. Her sense of adventure and ambition belies her protective upbringing. Fresh from receiving a business degree from the State University of New York at Oswego, she became an internal auditor for SCM Corp. in New York City, a job that had her travelling about 95 percent of the time. The auditors at Coopers & Lybrand apparently admired her work, because they hired her away. With them, she became a certified public accountant. Wanting more involvement with people, Ms. Murphy assumed responsibility for personnel administration, including recruiting and coaching new staff. She took that experience to other CPA firms, building expertise to include litigation support and forensic accounting. Still, her desire to help people through finance was unsatisfied; financial planning and banking proved to be her real calling. When someone goes out of the way to say thank you, I relish in it, she comments. Moving with Key PrivateBank to Florida within the last decade, she psoneof f anne welsh M C NULTY POWER WOMEN N OMEN O M E N 2010 W OME WOME IN COLLIERrian at Villanova University.

She also dedicated herself to community activities, including service on the Lee Memorial Hospital Foundation Board, with special interest in the campaign to build a new childrens hospital, and on the board of the Boys and Girls Club of Collier County. Pulling people together around a cause proved such an important source of satisfaction that she recently shared with a friend her desire to work in the not-for-profit sector. Perhaps it was kismet that just days later, she learned of an available position at the Community Foundation. Her financial prowess and community outreach capabilities proved a compelling combination, and she started in her new position on Oct. 1. A competitive swimmer, synchronized swimmer and water skier, Ms. Murphy recently has taken up tennis. She is married to Paul Skapura, who in retirement found new energy in working with speakers in the Lifelong Learning program at the Phil. This remarkable woman, who has been said to have no off button, looks forward to marrying her business and nonprofit roles, and doing something truly important for the community. That seems a fitting goal for a woman who already has achieved so much. Melanie Carol POWER WOMEN N OME N O M E N 2010 W OME WOM E IN COLLIERMayela Rosales is proud to say she is living the American Dream. Born and raised in Venezuela, Ms. Rosales and her husband Orlando moved to Naples in 1996.While he immediately began work as a computer engineer, Ms. Rosales went to school, learned English and raised their sons (Gabriel, now 11, and Daniel, 8). She holds masters and bachelors degrees from the University of Zulia in Venezuela, and had been associate creative director for Target DDBY Needham Worldwide Advertising in her native country. So it wasnt long before her creative juices began flowing here and she found a niche to fill: She created and hosted the areas first Hispanic television show, DLatinos, which initially aired on Comcast. She and her husband formed Media Vista Corp., added a magazine and website under the same brand and acquired a broadcast station. She is now executive vice president of both Media Vista and Azteca America of Southwest Florida. But, her life isnt just about the work. I wanted to be involved in the community, she explains. And I feel very proud that, from day one, community leaders and organizations have opened the door for me personally and for my company. They understood the importance of the diversity in our community and the growth of the Hispanic market, which had been underserved. As the community embraced DLatinos, Ms. Rosales embraced it back. She serves on many boards, including the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce (for which she chairs the Council of Hispanic Professionals), the Economic Development Council of Collier County, Fifth Third Bank and the Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples. Previous board service has included Catholic Charities and the Naples Press Club. Her success has also brought her many awards, including Most Powerful Woman in Southwest Florida in 2009 from the Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce, and one of the 50 Most Powerful Women in the U.S. in 2009 from Congressman Mario Diaz Balart. And she has had her own day, April 1, in Cape Coral since 2005. When youre in the media and youre a minority and part of a culture, you need to be part of the system, she explains of her wide-ranging involvement. I feel the responsibility that I can be the channel of communication between these organizations and my community that I serve. Robin DeMattiaEva Sugden Gomez, a member of the generous Sudgen family, is a focused, determined, caring person with a mission of her own.I care about people and what is going on in our world, she explains, and that is what her life has been all about since she moved to Collier County 15 years ago. Her parents, Herb and Margaret Sugden, were here and, as Ms. Gomez says, Whats not to love about Naples? She does her part to make this a better world, and her generous gifts reflect her beliefs. She recently donated $2 million to the Conservancy of Southwest Florida to help establish the Sugden Gomez Environmental Planning Center. I am absolutely on the green team and am committed to saving our wildlife and our planet for our children and grandchildren for generations to come, says the mother of five, proud grandmother of five and very proud great-grandmother of 2 (one is on the way). Her latest contribution to the environment is her purchase of a Tesla Roadster, an electric car. I love it, she says. I plug it in, there are no emissions, and I help create a nice, clean environment. Perhaps one of the most intriguing and defining aspects of Ms. Gomez life is her passion for ballroom dancing. She has mastered 14 different dances and competes nationally and internationally; she won silver in her most recent competition. For her, ballroom dancing is a hobby as well as exercise and fun, and it all began with a Welcome Wagon gift certificate from Arthur Murray Dance Studio when she moved to Naples. Now, she shares her love of dancing with Collier County kids. She supports the World Dance Arts Foundation, which encourages young people to learn and enjoy ballroom dancing and which is based in Naples at her request. Locally, Ms. Gomez has helped Cypress Palm and Immokalee middle schools become Schools that Rock. Other community organizations that have benefitted from Ms. Gomez generosity with her time, talents and financial resources include the Education Foundation of Collier County, the Guadeloupe Center, the American Red Cross, The Naples Players and the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. We all can make a little difference in the world, she believes. Being a good human being with a smile on your face means something. Rhona SaundersIts no coincidence that Third Street South, where Old Naples was born, is still a local treasure. A fair share of the credit goes to Joan Fleischmann Tobin.Ms. Tobin came to her exquisite sense of style and sophistication honestly. Her parents, Julius (Junkie) and Dorette Fleischmann, were worldwide entrepreneurs and philanthropists who locally created not only Third For Adria Starkey, life is all about learning, and so she is a continuous student. Formal education, such as her degree from the University of Florida; professional training, from institutions such as Wachovia; or everyday observation, in business, community and travel all have contributed to an attitude and experience that breeds success. Born to a proud and entrepreneurial Italian-American family, Ms. Starkey attributes her drive to her father, her dynamism to her mother and her devotion to family and community to both. This powerful combination of traits has allowed her to accomplish her ambitious goals. Before settling on a banking career, she sold lab equipment and supervised surveillance procedures for a nuclear power plant. Eventually, however, her interest and training in finance and marketing led to Southeast Bank in Miami for a year-long training program she considers equivalent to a masters degree. eislivingthe thegenerous eet mayela ROSALES eva sugden GOMEZ joan fleischmann TOBIN adria STARKEY I care about people and what is going on in our world. Her power is the kind that comes from within, fueled by personal growth and development and resulting in making good choices. Then, 23 years ago, she transferred to Naples with Northern Trust and, after a stint in redevelopment of Fifth Avenue, to First Union to establish a wealth management division. She later became regional president and supervised the Wachovia merger and the SouthTrust acquisition. After merging families with Jerry Starkey and a four-year hiatus, she found another opportunity to partner with Dick Botthof, who as president of First Union had hired her there. Helping to found The Naples Trust Company, she discovered the intellectual capital, entrepreneurial spirit and unerring integrity that are the cornerstones of its parent company, The Sanibel Trust Company. Ms. Starkeys life has been distinguished not only by business success and family commitment, but also by community service. She loves Naples and is determined to help retain its character and appeal. She remembers a luncheon with philanthropist Lavern Gaynor that resulted in the launch of Girls Inc. (now the Boys and Girls Club) in Naples. Today, however, her passion is for the Shelter for Abused Women & Children, for which she serves as board chair, and for the Naples Children and Education Foundation, for which her husband is a board member and she has served on the grant committee. Even her work is directed to social needs; for example, she has created the WOW program, which empowers women to be more informed, confident and prepared to handle their financial future independently and dynamically. Her power is the kind that comes from within, fueled by personal growth and development and resulting in making good choices. It also is the kind of power to which others are attracted. It is a winning formula for extraordinary achievement. Melanie Carol When youre in the media and youre a minority and part of a culture, you need to be part of the system.

Nurturing her parents vision, Ms. Tobin has preserved many of the original structures on Third Street South and enhanced them with courtyards, statues, fountains and lush landscaping that invite visitors to linger and wander among the carefully chosen boutiques, galleries and world-class restaurants that make the area notable on a national scale. Although her father is her major influence, she is far more than her fathers daughter. She has been a venture capitalist, venture funder, political staff person (for Nelson Rockefeller, among others), magazine owner (The Washington Woman) and commercial real estate developer and owner. And her community work is even more remarkable. A political activist, she was involved in the National Womens Political Caucus and was a founder of the National Womens TalentBank through which highly qualified women were given top-level jobs in Federal Cabinet departments. She also was a founder of The Committee of 200, a national womens business organization. Her current commitment is to the next phase of womens issues: the global movement for the human rights and the economic and political empowerment of women as a path to stability in lesser developed countries. Specifically, Ms. Tobin supports the work of Somaly Mam, an extraordinary woman who escaped a brutal life in brothels, returned to rescue others and is now a global leader in the fight against human trafficking. Ms. Tobin, who attended Vassar College and graduated from the University of Cincinnati, has been married for 38 years to attorney and entrepreneur Maurice Tobin, whose community service has included environmental issues and the rescue from demolition of the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. Splitting their time among residences in Washington, East Hampton, Aspen and Naples, they have two New York-based children, a daughter who is the development director for the Somaly Mam Foundation, and a son who is a stockbroker with a boutique Wall Street firm. How does this Power Woman define power? As the ability to influence events and/or points of view hopefully in a balanced way. By this definition, she is a powerful woman indeed. Melanie Carol To say that Sharon Treiser is an active community volunteer is an understatement.Take a breath, and here we go: She serves on the board of the Naples Art Association, the advisory board for the Salvation Army of Collier County (she has chaired the Red Kettle Campaign for two years), the Planned Giving Council for NCH Healthcare System and the Planned Advisory Committee for the Community Foundation of Collier County. She served four years on the Education Foundation of Collier County board of directors, including one year as chair, and this year will be her third as chair of the NCH Hospital Ball. She chaired the Princess Diana: Legacy of Giving gala for the art association this pat spring, and she has chaired the Humane Society Naples Pet Lovers Ball for two years. Ms. Treiser also won the Literacy Volunteers of Collier County Dancing with the Stars event, though one wonders when she had time to rehearse. Not surprisingly, she was honored in 2009 by the Community Foundation of Collier Countys Women of Initiative program. Whew! My parents would always say Many hands make light work and If not now, then when? Ms. Treiser recalls. They taught me that its important to give back and to help make the world a better place. Professionally, Ms. Treiser serves as vice president and senior relationship manager with PNC Wealth Management in the Naples office. She has more than 20 years of financial services industry experience, most recently with BNY Mellon Wealth Management. One of my passions is helping empower women, through knowledge, including financial knowledge, she says. It does not matter how wealthy a woman is. If she does not understand the power and fragility of her financial holdings, then she will not be comfortable or confident in her ability to take care of her family and community. Born in Princeton, N.J., and raised in Akron, Ohio, from the age of 4, Ms. Treiser earned her bachelors degree and MBA from Washington University in St. Louis. She has two sons, Michael and Sean, and husband David Leigh. Robin DeMattia a c t i v e sharon TREISER How does this Power Woman define power? As the ability to influence events and/or points of view hopefully in a balanced way. One of my passions is helping empower women, through knowledge, including financial knowledge. the FGCU WOMENS VOLLEYBALL TEAMIf youve ever played volleyball, then you know: Its a game made for beaches, afternoons in the park, and easy-going fun followed by a picnic afterward a mildly active entertainment taken up by the youthful leisure class, right?Wrong. At the college level, where FGCUs 17-member womens team is known across the league as an NQ Squad (Never-Quitters), players are roughly as familiar with leisure as mountain climbers are with flatlands. Which makes every one of these young ladies a power woman. We really complement each other this is a fun, enthusiastic, hardworking environment, explains Keishla Negron, a 5-foot 8-inch junior (considered small) from Puerto Rico majoring in environmental studies. Thats what the girls bring to the team. Dedication. Coach Dave Nichols, a 33-year veteran of the coaching ranks, puts it this way: They learn a sense of humor about life. A sense of humor beginning as early as 6 a.m., with a rigorous weight regimen or some other workout that serves up three hours, on average, of practice before lights out in the evening. The biggest difference these girls have from the general population is this: Theyve been forced to acquire some poise and toughness through years of sport, Coach Nichols explains. Getting up early, facing pressure situations, working with coaches they dont necessarily like, dealing with failure its all being part of a team, a community. Its unique to the athletic experience, and a lot of women dont get that. Of course, volleyball isnt the only arena where they exercise their poise and toughness. The team grade point average is roughly 3.2, and all of them engage in other activities. Ms. Negron, for example, maintains a G.P.A. of 3.75. She serves in student government, sits on the Environmental Initiatives Committee, the Tree Care Advisory Committee, the Environmental Association of FGCU, and she does nonprofit work with the Sierra Club. I dont know if this girl ever sleeps, remarks Coach Nichols. And shes only one of 17. Emma Racila, a 6-foot 1-inch senior from Fort Myers, made the USA National Deaf Team this year, says Coach Nichols. Senior Jacqueline Cowden, a 6-foot 2-inch California girl, volunteers at nursing homes and runs to practice. Every one of them has a story and a record as strong and singular as a railroad spike or a volleyball spike. That fact isnt lost on those who seek talent. When CEOs come on recruiting trips, their number one population is female athletes, notes Coach Nichols. And for good reason. Volleyball has helped me build my team skills, explains Ms. Negron. What I want to pursue, environmental law, involves knowing and working with people who have different ways of thinking and working. Cultural backgrounds are a big influence. So is the FGCU womens volleyball team.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 Q:Dear Seafood Professor,In my travels around S.W. Florida I often see a pick-up truck parked in some vacant lot, tail gate open with an ice cooler atop, and a hand written sign advertising FRESH SHRIMP. Are these guys regulated? Is it safe to buy seafood from them? Where do they get their seafood? June M., Golden Gate Estates A:June, thanks for the great question. The Florida Department of agriculture classifies these operations as Mobile Food Establishments(MFE). Florida, perhaps because of the favorable weather, seems to have a lot of these types of seafood vendors selling all kinds of fresh seafood to the public out of the back of trucks. Yes, there are state regulations on MFEs. They are permitted to sell headless shrimp, head-on shrimp, and whole or eviscerated fish. However, they are not allowed to do any processing on the mobile unit. Processing must be done at a licensed and inspected commissary prior to loading of the MFE. In addition, the MFE selling seafood must have a state license to sell retail seafood, the operator must have certification as a food protection manager, the seafood must be protected from contamination, there must be a state certified scale for weighing the product, a means of refrigeration is required with a thermometer to monitor product temperature, containers for solid waste must be provided, a potable water supply and hand washing capability is required, as is a container large enough to hold all waste water generated within the unit. In reality, many mobile seafood vendors do not meet the state requirements. The regulations are difficult to enforce since these operations are, by definition, mobile. They constantly move around and usually operate on weekends. This is why the seafood professor advises against buying seafood from the roadside vendors. If you are tempted to do so, verify that they meet the state requirements, and as always, use your nose. 239-593-5555www.randysfishmarketrestaurant.com10395 Tamiami Trail N.

The images coming out of prime sex tourism spots mainly Thailand make your skin crawl: disheveled older men accompanied by young women barely out of their teens. They paint a picture of sex, power, money and the barter system based on all three. What we see less is the reverse: the same scenes, but with older women accompanied by buff young men. If you believe the news reports coming out of developing nations and watch documentaries like Kuta Cowboys set on Balis pristine beaches, then the sex trade catering to women is brisk. European women, especially, are tapping into this natural resource abroad, and older widows and divorcs from the continent are making their way to vacation spots in the Caribbean and along Africas western shores. There, the strong euro buys cheap souvenirs and a roll in the sand with one of the local studs. Many condemn the practice as exploitative, but others say its an easy way for men with few alternatives to bring in a few bucks. On a beach vacation to a foreign destination recently, I got my own peek at the sex tourism industry geared at women. I In foreign flesh trade, sometimes women have the upper hand ArtisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com watched from the water as a woman walked across the yellow sand of the beach and into the green-grey ocean. She waded in, swam a few strokes, and then bobbed in the salty sea. Within minutes, a small crowd of men had formed around her. They were all young and handsome, with sleek muscles defining their chests and arms. They flirted with her unabashedly. She laughed and tittered and spoke to them in her German accent. Her hair was blond but shot through with grey, and she had perhaps indulged in too many wiener schnitzels over the years. But from the way the men grinned their wolfish grins at her, you would think she was the best catch on the beach. Which perhaps she was. The men the ones people say are being exploited seemed to have a clear grasp of what they were doing. Sex for money is the oldest trick in the book. Sex for a green card is newer, but the principle is still the same. So, if the men are not being exploited, who is? Is it the women, the ones who take their foreign beaux out to dinner and send cash from abroad? Maybe. But I dont think so. Fundamentally, these relationships are like any other: founded on a basic exchange. On some level, we all trade love for money and money for love. Whats unsettling about female sex tourists is that for once, women control the cash flow. Even more unnerving SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSand rare is that theyre the ones dictating the terms of the exchange. It feels unnatural, like writing with the opposite hand. But who are we to condemn? When I saw the plump German matron surrounded by a gaggle of handsome young men, my first reaction was to give her a high five. Now I wonder when this hot commodity will reach our gulf shores. ...When I saw the plump German matron surrounded by a gaggle of handsome young men, my first reaction was to give her a high five... a wo ma n n d of the cean.

The sanctuary is on the track to educate the public about cast-off exotic pets and their plight to exist. Visitors to the Village will be able to meet wolf pups and find out about adoption opportunities, have a photo taken with a wolf, make a donation, sign up for raffles, listen to live music by Mercy Duo and Michael Simons World Music and even have their faces painted. Artichoke & Company will have a cookout. A silent auction will have gift certificates from various shops and restaurants in the Village, including Artichoke & Company, M Waterfront Grille, Blue Willis, Horse of a Different Color and H.T. Chittum. All proceeds will benefit Shy Wolf Sanctuary. While we show off these beautiful exotic animals, we are really enlightening the public about the ills of having exotic animals as pets, says Mark Scarola, director of SWF. Once the animal becomes too big, or the owner doesnt want it any longer, the animals are released into the wild where they cannot survive. Animals find their way to SWS licensed and inspected facilities, government seizures, shelters, pet stores and private individuals. SWS cares for those animals it can and attempts to find a home for others through networking with other rescuers and sanctuaries across the country. Many animals are adoptable and are available through the wolf dog rescue network. Applications, vet references, home visits and follow-up are mandatory. All animals adopted are spayed or neutered prior to placement. SWS is licensed by state and federal entiries. For information, call 455-1698 or e-mail shywolfsanctuary@aol.com.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 on the moon in July 1969. He even remembers the TV set he was watching when astronaut Neil Armstrong first stepped foot on lunar soil. So Mr. Dawson created Space Panorama, a 30-minute retelling of the lunar journey, using only his hands. Originally, he was going to use props. In his case, the moon was not made of cheese, but salami. He sat in a friends kitchen in Brussels and messed around with bits of salami, which makes a good moon more mottles, and its round. Knives could be the rockets. Maybe you could (tell the tale) with breakfast. But, he discovered, it was easier not to use objects at all. In the end, it was easier to convey the colossal scale of space without any objects, he says in a trans-Atlantic phone call. I had to determine what gestures and movement would illustrate that. It was just my hands and me. He wrote some text and had an actor friend record the narration. And he added Shostakovichs Symphony No. 10, epic music just to keep it epic, he says. The whole piece takes half an hour. Hell perform it six times at the Sarasotas Cook Theatre as part of the Ringling International Arts Festival, which takes place Oct. 13-17. Presented by the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in collaboration with New Yorks Baryshnikov Arts Center, the festival offers cuttingedge theater, music, dance and visual art. This years offerings include the world premiere of Hurricane, a new play by Cuban-American playwright Nilo Cruz, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Anna in the Tropics,; a ballet/ hip-hop hybrid dance by the Canadian Rubberbandance Group; The Forman Brothers Opera Baroque, a farce that combines marionettes with live actors; and dance performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov and David Neumann. Some programs have already sold out. A Florida debutIts the first time Mr. Dawson will perform Space Panorama in Florida, the state from which the Apollo 11 launched. He debut the piece back in 1989 in a classroom that held an audience of about 30 people. It was like a little black box theater, he says. That was really exciting. I never imagined I would take it to anything bigger. But he did. Hes taken Space Panorama all over the world, including Japan and Australia. Hes performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and earlier this year at New York Citys Under the Radar Festival. One fun one was Oshkosh, Wis., at the air show, he says. Its the largest air show in the world. I got to walk around planes all day. Im into all that, he says. He performed it at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., for the 40th anniversary of the moon landing. And he also did the piece for perhaps his toughest and most knowledgeable audience: an astronaut reunion in Houston, Texas, in 2001. John Young, the Apollo 16 commander who flew the first space shuttle, had seen Mr. Dawson perform in London and invited him to the Texas event. Mr. Dawson estimates there were 200 astronauts there, including Buzz Aldrin (who was the second human being to step foot on the moon) and some of the old guys, and lots of space shuttle guys They really, really liked it, he says. They gave him a standing ovation. They were great. I think they just really enjoyed the imagination of it. It was not a dry documentary about something they all knew. They enjoyed the humor.A fitting celebrationSpace Panorama incorporates drama and humor. Its a fine line, he says. He readily acknowledges that the very fact that Im doing this with my hands is ridiculous. But, he says, its also a celebration. I celebrate the fact that its an amazing thing. I think of it as a visual poem to the Apollo 11 moon landing. It captures a certain essence of what the mission was like. Though hes been doing Space Panorama for more than 20 years now, he never tires of it. Its really weird, he says. I never bore of it because its like watching a movie of the moon landing, with my hands. I always wonder if theyre going to make it. I always think during it, Bloody hell, 41 years ago, men got to the moon, and Ive got more technology in my washing machine than they had in their whole space (craft.) What an amazing thing. I always hold my breath for them. Cars now have 15 computers in them. You look at the engine, you have no idea how they work. When you had your car serviced, in the old days, they took the engine apart and mended cars with nuts and bolts. They built the Saturn V rocket and the Apollo rocket with no more technology than that! Apollo 13 was risky, but they all got back, in a thing that was basically low tech. Every time I do the piece, I think its amazing.An in-between placeMr. Dawson, studied dance with Merce Cunningham, but knew he was never quite good enough to join the company. And I was never going to be a great classical actor, in terms of learning scripts and doing plays, and doing Hamlet, he says. That was never my interest. I was more interested in dance and music I found this place in-between. He also discovered that he had magic hands. Hes worked as a hand model in commercials for McDonalds and Citrix computer software. He was Clive Owens hand in a perfume commercial. What makes a good hand is one that you dont notice too much, he explains. If it was really interesting, youd look at the hand and not the product. It has to look really natural: length of the fingers, length of the hand. When its like that, you just look at the product. Graceful, but not calling attention to itself. But Mr. Dawsons hands call attention to themselves on stage although in Space Panorama, you dont see his hands when you look at them, but the lunar module. He has mastered the art of the simple gesture, of lyrical movement. So much of the world is communicated through our physicality, he says. I think our hands are like the eyes The eye sees, and the hand touches as if it sees. Simple contact is vitally important, he adds. A huge part of our brain is relegated to the hand. You know so much through your hand: weight, temperature, texture. Hes working on a new project, The Articulate Hand, which looks at hand impairment: people who have strokes and cant move their hands anymore, those with spinal cord injuries who may have limited use of their hands, and those suffering from arthritis. Also in his repertoire: the moving Absence and Presence, inspired by the death of his father in 1985. A widower, he lay undiscovered in his house for 10 days. I was always fascinated by this empty house, where his body was, but life went on outside it, he says. Grass still grew, cars went by, people were walking by, and no one knew. In the end, I made a piece about my missed relationship with my father. Working as he does, with movement and minimal props, is a very essential kind of theater, Mr. Dawson says. Its going back to how we told stories before. Its the simplest part of story telling. You dont need lots of props and things to tell it. You have to capture the essence and spirit of the story itself.

Expires 11/4/10. $24.95 Cynthias Lament, Theatre Conspiracys first offering of this new season, is an unintended object lesson in the importance of good casting. When a show is well cast, you believe the actors actually are the characters theyre portraying and become lost in the world being presented to you. Written by Paul J. Lawrence, Cynthias Lament is the winner of Theatre Conspiracys annual New Play Contest, chosen from among more than 300 entries from the U.S., Canada and England. It tells the story of Taylor, a spoiled brat of a man whos made his fortune writing romance novels as Cynthia Silver. But hes tired of donning heels and gown for public appearances and longs to write a serious novel as a man. But everyone else, including his elderly editor, Agnes, is invested in him continuing to write as Cynthia. Theatre Conspiracy gave patrons a sneak peek at the play this summer when, as a fundraiser, it presented a reading of scenes from the top three contenders for the 2010 New Play Contest prize. Cynthias Lament was the hands-down audience favorite. Simply put, Cynthias Lament was hysterical. I laughed so much my face hurt. I was angry when the reading ended, because I found it so entertaining I wanted to see the entire thing. So I was eagerly looking forward to the opening-night performance; surely, with sets and costumes and rehearsals, it would be even better. Unfortunately, the casting has changed dramatically, and the new cast fails to provide the magic the reading possessed.Bill Taylor, Theatre Conspiracys founding producing artistic director, is no longer the lead. (He did, however, direct the show.)In the reading, Mr. Taylor had a lightness in delivering Taylors lines; he possessed just the right nuance and inflection. His attitude seemed to say: Isnt this absurd? Isnt this amusing? He got the joke. J. Mitchell Haley now plays the lead, and the humor is much broader. Unfortunately, on opening night, many of the lines fell flat, and even the sight of him in a black gown and pearls his chest and back shaved only halfway failed to provide gales of laughter. Its not that Mr. Haley cant act; its just that he doesnt seem to be exactly the right person for this role. Hes great at playing the heavy, at being bombastic or explosively angry. In fact, he participated in the summer reading and was wonderful but in a different role. As Marcus, Taylors very much put upon assistant, Mr. Haley sputtered and simmered, vibrating with a barely controlled anger. He was perfect in the role, and made the audience laugh much more heartily at his lines than he does now in the lead. In the full production, Jordan Wilson plays the assistant as whiney and petulant. When Mr. Haley played the role, he was a ticking time bomb about to explode. But Mr. Wilson is much more low key too much so. You feel that if pushed to his limits, the worst Marcus might do is stomp his foot. The character of Agnes was originally played by age-appropriate local actor Betty Madonna, a beloved performer who has appeared in many Theatre Conspiracy shows. In the reading, she garnered howls of laughter by snapping Bite me or by simply glaring at Taylor. The witty repartee between the two had sparks and left the audience helpless with laughter. With Lisa Marie in the role, however, Agnes seems to be aiming at the Borscht Belt. Her verbal sparring with Taylor now comes across as more cruel than funny. (Though Mr. Haley did get a laugh when he called her you gin-soaked liver spot!) Lisa Marie portrays her character with broad strokes a bad wig, oversized glasses and clothes, and a walk that leaves her posterior sticking out. Whereas Ms. Madonnas Agnes was feisty and crotchety, Ms. Maries is a caricature. Is it fair to compare? After all, Broadway changes actors all the time in shows. And every actor puts his own stamp on a role, giving his own interpretation of a character and the play itself. I wouldnt have minded different interpretations of the characters, if theyd been just as funny. But this full-blown production of Cynthias Lament falls far short of the riotously humorous partial reading presented this summer. A show that was similar in tone to Jeff Goodes Love Loves a Pornographer with witty, clever dialogue, now drags. On opening night, the actors stumbled with their lines or stepped on others lines, seeming to just be waiting until the other actor finished talking so they could say their line. There didnt seem to be real interaction going on. The comedic rhythm was off, too. Unfortunately Mr. Taylor couldnt get this ensemble to mine the wonderful humor of Mr. Lawrences play. For the most part, they deliver the lines as sitcom dialogue, rather than urbane banter. John Brothers, thankfully, reprises his role as Hudgins, the butler. He is the calm in this storm, always helpful, always discreet. (Though at one point he claims to know what hell is, because he once worked for Truman Capote.) Nancy Antonio, Mike Breen and Willie Filkowski round out the cast. The show starts with the full playing of Frank Sinatras rendition of Luck Be a Lady. The audience has to sit through the entire song before anything starts happening onstage. Mr. Lawrences play has great wit and some terrific lines, but it needs actors who know how to deliver them properly. Unfortunately, the script itself also has problems. It runs out of steam toward the end, resorting to vomit jokes and a resolution thats as unlikely as it is hasty. This production is so much less than what this play could be. And thats real cause for lamentation.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 C9 GIVING The mission of the Professional Advisors Council of the Community Foundation of Collier County is to provide education, resources and experience on charitable planning to promote strategic philanthropy in our community. Along with the technical aspects of giving, the PAC also provides tools and insights into the soft side of philanthropy: why donors give, the value of these gifts to the community, where and how to give with impact, family succession and charitable giving plans, and donor education programs. The foundation views its relationship with professional advisors as a pivotal element of its efforts to educate the public about the value and benefits of planned giving strategies and tax deferred charitable vehicles. Many different financial events can motivate a client to seek professional advice that might lead to a charitable opportunity. Among them are need to develop an estate plan, retirement, longterm capital assets, a financial windfall, an inheritance and ownership transitions in closely-held companies. The Community Foundation benefits from many volunteers who, be serving on the PAC, provide a wealth of knowledge and experience that helps to guide all aspects of the foundations work. PAC members have a commitment to philanthropy and an understanding of the benefits their clients can enjoy from working with the foundation. There are multiple benefits to the PAC, the foundation and individual donors. Working together, PAC and the foundation can educate the public about the value and benefits of planned giving strategies and tax-deferred charitable vehicles. We gain information on the technical side of giving and insight into the reasons donors choose to give. The foundation can provide information on the more than 165 nonprofits in Collier County that assist in identifying community needs and the impact of gifts to these organizations.

The camera never leaves the inside of the coffin, so this certainly isnt for the claustrophobic. It is, however, very intense and nicely done, especially as we learn more about Paul and why hes there. Rated R.Life As We Know It (Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Josh Lucas) After their mutual best friends die in a car accident, Holly (Ms. Heigl) and Messer (Mr. Duhamel) are given joint custody of their friends orphan baby. It has some nice dramatic and comedic moments, but it labors toward an ending it wants but doesnt need. Rated PG-13. CAPSULES REVIEWED BY DAN HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com ............Theres a reason more movies arent made about horses: Theyre boring. Unless its pitch-black and ridden by the Headless Horseman, theres not much a horse can offer besides looking nice, running and eating hay. So if equestrian events are your thing, enjoy Secretariat. If not, the movie is a bit of a bore, with standard sports-flick underdog sentimentality and an ending thats far from Google-proof. Diane Lane stars as Penny Chenery, a housewife who takes over her ailing fathers (Scott Glenn) Virginia horse farm in 1969 after her mother dies. Her husband (Dylan Walsh) wants her to stay home in Denver and raise their children, and her brother (Dylan Baker) is worried about debt, but Penny is determined to use her good business sense in the male-dominated world of horse racing. She hires a kooky, overthe-hill trainer named Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich, hammin it up) and a jockey named Ron Turcotte (real-life jockey Otto Thorwarth) to start winning some races. It doesnt take long. By July 1972, we know the horse, Secretariat, is a winner because director Randall Wallace gives us the standard victory montage weve grown to expect in sports movies, in which the hero reels off five, six or more wins to emerge as a legit contender. It all leads up to the summer of in which Secretariat must complete three races the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes in three states in five weeks in order to become the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years. The biggest competition? A horse named Sham, who turns out to be just that. In a desperate attempt to have an antagonist in the one-note story, Shams obnoxious owner, Poncho (Nestor Serrano), trash talks even after Sham loses. Heres an unwritten rule for all sports: When you get beat, shut your mouth and do your talking during the rematch. Anything you say until then just makes you a gasbag. There are some fun shots as we ride with the horses during the races, and the costumes and production design look genuinely, painfully s. The fact that this is based on a true story is almost a moot point, as the movie plays out like a typical sports movie, with no surprises or twists anywhere in sight. This is not to suggest that artistic license should have been taken to distort the truth, but rather to say that better, crisper editing would have cut out the minutiae and concentrated more on the horse, races and winning rather than economics. Ms. Lane is fine in the lead, and Mr. Malkovich goes through the paces of the eccentric old guy he seems to be playing a lot of lately (wait until you see him in RED next week). But whereas Secretariat the horse had heart, grit and determination, Secretariat the movie has schmaltz, sentimentality and predictability and that means its not a winner.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WRITING CHALLENGE Salt and LightBY SCOTT P. SOMERFLECK ______________________When coffee grounds have been used, who can restore its flavor? Who can restore a pickle to a cucumber savor? Who can unscramble an egg and return it to its shell? Who can restore a bitter life once it is in hell? Do not be coffee, which casts its soul upon the water. It is used up once and then is lost forever. Be salt which never dies. It is reborn when the water dries. It will never lose its savor. Be light which warns of every pit. Nothing can ever capture it. WetlandBY PATRICIA BOUTILIER ____________________We have no mountains rising to the sun the eye arcs north and south across a river of grass, the palm trees and mangroves sluicing the sky as we drive the Tamiami Trail. Over and over, the children ride the dragon coaster at the Everglades fair unknowing that beneath them rides the vouivre, a coiled serpent of telluric currents full of the earths energy. Our watery world floats on shell mounds left by the Calusa centuries before and one perfect storm might erase us, too. The wet center is endless and may not hold. EmptinessBY SCOTT P. SOMERFLECK ______________________Emptiness fills my coffee cup. Its bitterness wakes me up. For boredom and exhaustion I consume throughout the day. I pray before I go to bed, but I dont know what to say. For God is so very far away,I dream of fears throughout the night and wake before the sun; another day older.A worn out life. Beat down too much for one more try. Pour me a drink and let me die.

The descriptive text is crisp and clear, presenting architectural detail in a way that is at once knowledgeable, lucid and accessible to novices. Maurice Fatio: Palm Beach Architect is lavishly illustrated with a generous assortment of period photographs and new ones, as well as floor plans rendered especially for this gorgeously produced volume. In presenting 26 representative examples of Mr. Fatios designs, Mr. Mockler incidentally provides us with a whos who in American society and culture. If homes reflect their inhabitants and owners, then this presentation of Mr. Fatios Palm Beach achievement reflects the inspiration and aspiration of the American Dream. However, this landscape of material culture never forgets its European heritage. Mr. Fatios designs are characterized by a variety of European influences, from Mediterranean palaces to British Colonial mansions and even homes with modernist influences. He made extensive use of quarry key stone mined in Florida, and his plans typically included a central courtyard that provided wind-sheltered outdoor entertainment space. Mr. Mocklers descriptive narratives include intriguing biographies and family histories; vivid word portraits of the residences; details about ornamentation, interior design and furnishings; information about additions, renovations and successive including current owners. We learn about where stones were quarried, which local artisans (wrought-iron craftsmen, etc.) made contributions to the architects vision and how the various residences were situated with respect to the ocean and to Lake Worth. For whom did Mr. Fatio design his Palm Beach estates? His list of clients is a whos who of American and international affluence and influence. Among them: Joseph E. Widener, the art collector who donated his familys famous them collection to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. He is also known as the man who brought Hialeah Park to prominence as a world-class horseracing track. E.F. Hutton, founder of the brokerage house that bears his name. He built his first Fatio house with wife Marjorie Merriweather Post and his second with his next wife, Dorothy Dear Metzger. And several members of the Vanderbilt family. The books introduction has a biography of Mr. Fatio that includes the contours of his career and his influence on Palm Beach architecture during his lifetime and beyond. Theres also a rewarding sketch of Palm Beach social life during the period of Mr. Fatios enormous productivity. Mr. Mockler reminds us that the Palm Beach abodes of the elite were for the most part seasonal residences, supplemented by several other homes in similarly prestigious communities. The study concludes with a catalogue of Mr. Fatios approximately 160 residential commissions on Palm Beach and nearby communities. A Fort Lauderdale interior designer, Mr. Mockler is a native Floridian whose many years of studying Palm Beach architecture has given rise to a remarkable achievement. In expounding upon the achievement of Maurice Fatio, he has evoked the spirit of an epoch and a place as lived in by those who could FLORIDA WRITERS The architectural legacy of Maurice Fatio BY PHILIP K. JASONSpecial to Florida Weekly Maurice Fatio: Palm Beach Architect, by Kim I. Mockler. Acanthus Press. 256 pages. $65. s o s h e h t to a e ro n, e ra rs h is w ith r ri his MOCKLER afford to fulfill their dreams. A conversation with Kim MocklerFlorida Weekly: How did you get the idea for this book? Kim Mockler: In the introduction, I explain how a friend and I drove around Palm Beach looking at houses as teenagers. This is a true story and pretty much lead me to my introduction to Maurice Fatio. Many of the houses I admired the most had been designed by him, although I didnt find that out until later. Once I did discover who he was, I wanted more information about him, but could never find that much written about him. In 1984, Dr. Donald Curl wrote a book about Addison Mizner called Mizners Florida. I loved that book, and strange as it seems, I thought a book like that should be written about Fatio. In 1992, Fatios daughter Alexandra edited letters written by her parents to her grandparents and published them in a book, Maurice Fatio, Architect. This wonderful book was a huge help but still left me wanting more. Then, in 2002, Michael Kathrens wrote American Splendor: The Residential Architecture of Horace Trumbauer, and at that point I decided Fatio should have a book written about him like that one. And since no one else was writing one, I would have to be the one to do so. FW: How did you prepare yourself to create it? KM: I was very lucky in writing the book. Most everything just fell into place. The Palm Beach Historical Society has a large collection of the work of Treanor & Fatio, and the director of archives, Debi Murray, was very helpful in letting me have access to it. In turn, she introduced me to the architects daughter, Alexandra Fatio Taylor, who answered any of my questions about her father and gave support and became a very dear friend. It was Alex who, in speaking to the publisher, Barry Cenower at Acanthus Press in reference to another matter, mentioned that I was writing a book about her father, which led to my publishing the book through Acanthus Press. FW: What did you learn along the way that surprised you? KM: I never really thought of myself as a writer and couldnt see sitting down and writing thousands of words that would be of interest to a reader. But surprisingly enough I guess it was the love of my subject once I started, each chapter just flowed. FW: What were the greatest difficulties you had to overcome? KM: I dont think that I really had difficulties per se. The only problems that I did run into involved research on some of the individuals who built the houses. Not all of them were an Otto Kahn, a Harold Vanderbilt or an E.F. Hutton; I had a lot of trouble finding information about several of the people who werent as famous. Luckily and I dont how I did finally find information about all of them. FW: Any similar projects in the works? KM: I have a couple of ideas rattling around in my head that I think might make for good books. I think Ill see how the public likes this book before proceeding with a new endeavor.

C18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY PRIX FIXE EARLY DINING MENU$18.00 720 5th Avenue Naples239-304-9461Lunch: 11:30am-4pm Dinner: 4pm close Brunch: Saturday & Sunday 10:30am-4pm Bar Menu available all day Happy Hour 4pm 6pm OPEN FOR LUNCH 7 DAYS A WEEKPRE-THEATRE DININGLIVE ENTERTAINMENT MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, FRIDAY Wooden Indians have been displayed at tobacco stores since the 19th century. Store signs at that time were often pictorial, because many customers could not read. Mayan Indians introduced tobacco to Christopher Columbus and his crew in 1492, but no one understood how the dried leaves were used. But by the 1500s, Englishmen and others were smoking or chewing tobacco. Legend says that Sir Walter Raleigh gave some to Queen Elizabeth after his voyages. By the 1800s, tobacco was used in most parts of the world and was an important agricultural crop. The wooden Indian figure was kept on the street to lure customers inside a tobacconists store. Other advertising figures used through the years have included a Chinese man for a tea shop and a jockey, baseball player, Uncle Sam or even Santa Claus for other businesses. The best wooden Indians were carved in 3-D from a single rounded log. Some were later made of iron. The Indian chiefs, princesses and braves were painted, and usually held a bundle of tobacco leaves or cigars. It is claimed that more than 100,000 carved store figures were in use by 1900. But new laws forced the figures off sidewalks, and most were destroyed. A well-made, wellpreserved antique wooden Indian sells today for thousands of dollars. The record price for a cigar-store figure is $542,400 for a Punch figure, an English comic character (not an Indian) attributed to Samuel Robb (1851-1928), a famous American carver. A few flat Indians also are known. These are made from a flat board, and can have shallow carving or just be painted cutout figures. These folk art pieces sell for much less than the 3-D carvings. Q: I inherited an Archie Bunkers Grandson Joey Stivic doll, made by Ideal. Its in its original box with an instruction sheet and has never been played with. Is there any value to it? A: The Joey Stivic doll was made by Ideal Toy Co. in 1976. Joey Stivic and Archie Bunker were characters on the TV series All in the Family, which ran from 1971 to 1979. Joeys birth was featured on the show in December 1975. Ideal advertised the drink-and-wet doll as physically correct. It caused a stir at the time because it was the first anatomically correct boy doll. Value: about $50. Q: Can you tell me anything about Artistic Pottery in Whittier, Calif.? It was on Workman Mill Road in the 1940s. My father worked there prior to going to Franciscan Pottery in Glendale, Calif. He was a chemist and glaze maker. A: Artistic Potteries operated a factory in Whittier and a showroom in Los Angeles. Little is known about the company, except that it was in business from about 1945 to 1948. The pottery made vases, bowls, figurines and other art pottery. Pieces are marked Artistic Potteries California or just Artistic California. Items made by Artistic Potteries show up on the Internet periodically and usually sell for under $50. Q: I have a folding rocking chair thats marked The Telescope Folding Furniture Co., Inc., Granville, N.Y. I would like to know something about the company. A: The Telescope Folding Furniture Co. was founded in Granville, N.Y., in 1903. The company is still in business making outdoor furniture. Q: I recently acquired a pair of antique opera glasses. I hope you can tell me something about their history and value. The glasses were made by Hirsch, Kahn & Co., Manufacturing Opticians, 333 Kearny St., San Francisco. Thats whats embossed on the inside of the lid of the black leather case they came in. Hirsch, Kahn & Co. is also imprinted on the eyepieces. The barrels, eyepieces and focus knob are mother-ofpearl. Theres an engraving on the front plate that readss, Frank to Kate, 89. A: Opera glasses were very popular during the 19th century, when theater and opera played a larger part in the publics social life than they have since the advent of movies and television. The firm of Carvings that once lured shoppers now lure collectorsKOVELS: ANTIQUES & COLLECTING terryKOVEL news@floridaweekly.com Hirsch, Kahn & Co. was in existence for only 10 years, from 1886 to 1896. So the engraved on your glasses probably means that the glasses were purchased and engraved as a gift in 1889. It also is likely that the glasses were sold by Hirsch, Kahn & Co., but were manufactured by another firm, probably a French one. Many American opticians ordered opera glasses from France but marked them with their own name. Most antique opera glasses like yours sell today for $100 to $200. Tip: Look out for reworked antique jewelry. An Art Deco diamond bracelet with a large, colored center stone may have once been a watch.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous reviews:Alexanders, 4077 Tamiami Trail N.; 262-4999 A splendid courtyard and equally lovely dining room afford customers plenty of charm that pairs well with chef/ owner Alexander Bernards food, a mix of European and American fare. There are also several dishes marked as healthier lower in calories, fat and/or salt. Jumbo lump crabmeat in garlic butter was simple and succulent. Equally good was a wild mushroom and goat cheese strudel served with caramelized apples and sun-dried cherry gastrique. Misocrusted butterfish was another simple but elegant dish and the duck with its crisp skin, moist flesh, and tart-sweet lingonberries and port wine reduction was excellent. Leave room for the house-made desserts, such as apple nut cake with ice cream and Monikas crepe of passion. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2008IM Tapas, 965 Fourth Ave. N.; 403-8272 Theres nothing puny about the small plates that emerge from the kitchen at IM Tapas. Each looks like a work of art and possesses big, fresh flavors that reveal the passionate dedication to this classic Spanish cuisine of its creators, chefs Isabel Polo Pozo and Mary Shipman. A polished staff and stylish dining room add to the warmth and conviviality of meal at this little off-the-beatenpath gem. Highlights from a recent meal included fresh anchovies in garlic, chorizo in cider, wild bonito with pomegranate seeds and pomegranate foam, duck breast with figs and port wine reduction, bacalao-stuffed peppers and a plate of stellar artisanal cheeses. While not situated in one of the citys popular dining areas, it could easily hold its own among them, its easy to find and theres plenty of parking. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2009Noodles Italian Caf and Sushi Bar, Mission Square Plaza, 1585 Pine Ridge Road; 592-0050 Pasta and sushi just doesnt seem a natural combination to me, but Noodles makes it work, offering upscale Italian fare, first-class sushi and a handful of low-carb options served by an able staff in a swanky club setting. Items from both East and West were excellent, including a nightly special of grilled shrimp and the whimsically named Paisano roll (fried snapper, scallions and cucumber topped with smoked salmon, avocado, sesame and sweet sauce). The lamb shanks were tender and delicious, served with natural juices enhanced by a bit of wine, garlic, rosemary, bay leaves and celery over house-made fettuccine. The cioppino featured a fresh mix of seafood also served over pasta. For dessert, one wedge of light, creamy Key lime pie was plenty for two. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2009Tavern on the Bay, 489 Bayfront Place; 530-2225Its a sports bar, but one that offers a more diverse selection of food and drink than you might expect in a place where people gather to cheer on their teams via satellite TV. Revel in wings, burgers, nachos and such if you want, but there are also wok dishes, salads and full-scale entrees, some even of a heart-healthy nature. Thai Bangkok wings were crisp, sweet and spicy, while an ahi tuna appetizer was lightly seared with a peppery-herbed exterior accompanied by pickled ginger, wasabi and soy vinaigrette. A mushroom Swiss burger was well executed, served with delicious house-made potato chips and a fried shrimp platter with fries was bountiful and tasty with the exception of some room temperature slaw. Service was above average throughout the meal, from the host to the server and expediters. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2009Thai Star, 26521 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 992-9825 Tucked into a side wing of a small strip center, Thai Star isnt highly visible from U.S. 41, but lovers of authentic Thai fare will be well rewarded for finding it. Chef Vong Vilaysack makes magic in the kitchen while her husband, Bill, does an equally good job at the front of the house. The appetizer menu is dizzying some 50 choices and worth making a meal of themselves. The som tum was a first-rate version of this popular salad that melds shredded papaya with tomato, peanuts, fish sauce, garlic and chilis. The larbkoong featured steamed shrimp with scallions, red onion, mint, kaffir leaves, lime and roasted crushed jasmine. A classic pad Thai, vibrant red curry with tofu and ginger talay (with mixed seafood, ginger, vegetables and brown sauce) were perfectly cooked, properly seasoned and served with just the degree of heat requested. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2009

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 14-20, 2010 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE It wasnt long after Id reviewed Sweet Mamas Island Cuisine last year that chef/owner Sheraz Khan ran into landlord issues and had to shut the doors on her little caf across from NCH on U.S. 41. All too often, that sort of ending usually means its the last youll see of even gifted chefs like Ms. Khan, aka Sweet Mama. But thats not the end of the story in this instance. Sweet Mamas headed on down the Trail and took over the former Mr. Moms diner, resulting in a larger dining room and a roomier kitchen in which she can whip up a more varied assortment of goodies, Jamaican and otherwise. The new restaurant offers more substantial tables and chairs in a room with brick walls, Tiffanystyle hanging lights and island art that those who frequented the first incarnation of the restaurant are apt to recognize. Theres a second, smaller dining room for larger parties or overflow. Except when shes cooking, Ms. Khan is likely to be in the dining room greeting new arrivals. On the night I visited, she was about to give a youngster a tour of the kitchen, but stopped to welcome a party of five first, telling the little boy, You dont want to leave them at the door by themselves. The menu is largely island influenced, although theres a nod to Italy where Ms. Khan trained as a chef as well as China and India countries she says are part of her lineage. It all makes for an eclectic selection and allows those whose palates arent quite ready for the all-out spice of the Jamaican dishes to choose something tamer. While perusing the menu, we tried a bottle of Red Stripe beer and one of Jamaican ginger beer, a tangy effervescent beverage without alcohol but with a gingery kick. All entrees come with salads, which turned out to be large and fresh. We tried the house dressing, ginger balsamic, and enjoyed the light tang the ginger added to the well-balanced vinaigrette. Next came appetizers: fried calamari ($9.99) and coconut shrimp ($8.99). Both were properly fried to golden brown. The calamari rings were crisp outside but tender within. We liked the tangy cocktail sauce served with them, a clever departure from the usual marinara. The crunchy breading on the shrimp had plenty of coconut, but it wasnt the super-sweet variety so it didnt overpower the shrimp. A creamy sauce with notes of mango and a spicy finish was just right for dipping. Next came small pieces of warm corn casserole, something of a cross between cornbread and corn pudding. It was sweet, moist and far too small a portion for my taste. I may order that as my main course on my next visit. Our entrees arrived steaming hot. My companion tried the jerk shrimp ($16), while I sampled the curry chicken ($13.99). Both came with large mounds of rice studded with peas and beans, which helped balance the fiery jerk and curry sauces. Theres no dumbing down the seasoning for Americans accustomed to mild flavors here. These sauces were bold, sizzling and authentic. The ginger beer helped diminish the burn, but it took a large piece of homemade Key lime pie to vanquish it entirely. Sweet Mamas Key lime uses the traditional sweetened condensed milk but does so sparingly so that the lime flavor stands out. Freshly made whipped cream and ripe strawberries all made for a rich, soothing finish to the meal. If theres one area in which Sweet Mamas could use a boost, its in service. The lone server on duty the night of our visit told us she generally works the day shift. That might be why she seemed unfamiliar with the dinner menu. But she also appeared unschooled in some service basics, such as bringing the beer bottle to the table then pouring it rather than simply delivering a full glass. We needed to ask three times for glasses of water, and she set our totaled bill on the table without asking if wed like any coffee or dessert, which, as it turned out, we did. In the big picture, however, such service peccadilloes are minor when compared with the charm and hospitality of Ms. Khan, her taste-bud-tingling cuisine or the pleasure of a leisurely meal on island time at Sweet Mamas. karenFELDMAN cuisine@floridaweekly.com Sweet Mama reopens in better digs with a bigger menu Thursday, Oct. 14, 5:30-8 p.m., Decanted: Sparkling wine is not just for special occasions anymore.
