Truth be told, Ive lived in sin. I may be living in sin now, for all I know I certainly hope so. After all, one persons sanctity is another persons sin, which means my chances are pretty good. The phrase itself remains as sweeping as the broad prairie, but as bluntly prosaic as a jail cell: LIVING IN SIN.Delicious. A condition that requires carrying on the game off the field while still hotly participating in it with any luck unseen by the referee. Living in sin is like racing toward the goal line of the opposing team with the football, but out of bounds, hidden from view behind their bench. To do it well you have to score a touchdown of course, a word frequently employed as a euphemism for the rewards of sin.Football is not a game of sin. Its a game of excess. If you can punch a man in the head or grab his facemask without being spotted by the referee, more power to you. If the referee sees you, though, youve merely committed a penalty. Not a sin. Youre judged excessive, too rough, dirty. But you arent a sinner. You might get 15 yards, but you sure as hell wont get the fiery lake. Among the Western worlds great aficionados of sin, some of my forbears rank near the top. The Puritans. (See Roger Williams, founder of Rhode Island. He was kicked out of Massachusetts at gunpoint in the middle of a winters night because he wasnt quite puritanical enough, apparently.) Although the Puritans have been gone now these 400 or so sin-filled years, they continue to cast a long, unsmiling shadow of disapproval across the wayward lives of contemporary Americans. And their cultural offspring continue to fight their battles for them, presumably to save us all from living in sin. They must know a lot about it, because they seem to consider the legislating of morality not only their right, but their talent. For example, the Puritanettes (if I may so describe the new Puritans) have righteously designed the war on drugs, that taxpayer funded, economically bankrupting, morally debilitating effort to make us straighten up and fly right. They also created the current hypocrisy of alcohol, a drug like any other but one legitimized and taxed to the very dregs (like drugs should be). Neither the Puritans nor the Puritanettes ever opposed profit, per se. In the name of profit, conveniently, theyve created a massive commerce of DUI enforcement that puts huge sums of money into the pockets of law enforcement agencies, lawyers, and a variety of middlemen ranging from bail bondsmen to alcohol abuse counselors to traffic school teachers to court personnel. Bars and restaurants, of course, continue to employ vast hordes of smiling drug pushers, known euphemistically (theres a lot of euphemism in sin) as bartenders or cocktail servers. They dispense the drug to drivers from places of business that for all practical purposes can only be reached by car or truck, an essential ingredient for the DUI enforcement industry. But at least those drug houses pay taxes for the privilege of selling their delightful spirits. Unlike churches. And how about Commerce on Sunday? In this regard, the devil has triumphed unequivocally. Or maybe its profit that triumphed, a close friend of the devils. If youre old enough to recall the days when stores closed on Sunday, then youre very old indeed, which means you can remember a world just a little less sin-filled than the current world. The Puritanettes, God bless em, have fought the other great sins, as well. Gambling, for example. Or legal prostitution in Nevada but thats not really a part of the United States except in name, any more than Key West is really a part of the United States. More dangerously, theres that insidious, community-entrenched sin that (unlike alcohol) only dates back about 50 years, to the drug-infused, sex-laced 1960s. I was there playing football as a teenager a game of excess, not sin. So dont look to me for personal stories about the s. As an alert reader of contemporary American history, however, Ive discovered that this very sinful and now very common business of cohabitation without marriage, aka LIVING IN SIN, began as a cultural phenomenon roughly about that time. And its come down to this in Florida: Its still against the law. Cohabitation is a second-degree misdemeanor that can get you a $500 fine or as many as 60 days in the slammer, just like adultery. You touch her, or him, before or after the Puritanettes decree, and youre a criminal. Not to mention a sinner. When Rep. Ritch Workman, a Republican from Melbourne, introduced a House bill recently to have that law repealed, he was met with stony silence by fellow Republican and Gov. Rick Scott, among other family values Puritanettes, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. Why would Rep. Workman pick this time to side with sin? Nobody really knows. Maybe he fears his two children will become criminals by living in sin. Or maybe its just a variation on his hobby, listed on his State House bio as deep sea fishing. Really deep and way, way out to sea.Now the poor fool stands front and center in the crosshairs of the Puritanettes, led by Rep. Dennis Baxley, an Ocala Republican, career mortician and former leader of the Florida chapter of the Christian Coalition (his interests also include fishing, along with listening to gospel music). Gov. Scott didnt have to speak because he did. Im not ready to give up on monogamy and a cultural statement that marriage still matters, he told the paper righteously. Me either, especially now that Im married. Im in the game, Im on the field of play, and Ive got the ball. Of course, Ive always been told that the sacrament of marriage relies on love, without which it aint nothin but a legal contract and a hound dog. Oddly, Ive never heard the Puritanettes talk about love (even they know you cant legislate that). Maybe thats the biggest sin of all.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2011OPINION The great divorce revolution of the 1960s and 1970s has faded. The great cohabitation revolution has begun. The divorce rate for married couples with children is almost back to the levels of the early 1960s, before the run-up that crested in the early 1980s. Considering the decades of social turbulence buffeting the institution of marriage between then and now, this is a notable restoration. But it only means that marriage is unraveling in a different way. According to a new study by the Institute for American Values and the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, cohabitation has increased 14-fold since 1970. About 24 percent of children are born to cohabiting couples, more than are born to single mothers, while another 20 percent experience a cohabiting household at some time in their childhood. On the face of it, this doesnt seem alarming. At least there are two adults there for the kids. Except the research says it isnt enough. Children in cohabiting households tend to lag children in intact married families on key social indicators and are not much better off than children in single-parent families. We want to believe that all relationships, so long as they are loving and well-intentioned, are equal. But as a general matter, compared with married couples, people across the gamut of cohabiting relationships report more conflict, more violence, and lower levels of satisfaction and commitment, in the words of the National Marriage Project study. This basically holds true of unmarried biological parents who are living together. Cohabiting couples are more likely to be depressed and less likely to pool their income. They are in altogether more tenuous relationships. Cohabiting couples with a child are more than twice as likely to break up as married parents. Only 24 percent of children of married parents experience a change in the relationship status of their mothers by age 12. The figure for the children of cohabiting couples is 65 percent. This is especially consequential for the affected children. The study notes an emerging scholarly consensus that family stability in and of itself is linked to positive child outcomes. Children who experience a divorce or some other to use the jargon maternal partnership transition are more likely to experience behavioral problems, drug use, problems in school, early sex, and loneliness. Children turn out to benefit from the structure, rituals and identity that come with a lasting marriage between their parents. And the very act of committing to the norms of marriage makes adults better marital partners and parents. One of the more affecting pieces of data in this study is that fathers committed to marriage are more likely to hug their children than fathers who arent. One of the more disturbing is that children in cohabiting households are more likely to be abused than children both in intact, married families and singleparent families. The advantages of marriage run much deeper than merely having two adults in the house. It is an irreplaceable source of social capital. As we move away from it and social scientists study the consequences, we learn more about why it was such a timeless institution once upon a time. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.The cohabitation revolution s a it in in th s h richLOWRY Special to Florida Weekly When one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it, wrote Joseph Goebbels, Germanys Reich minister of propaganda, in 1941. Former Vice President Dick Cheney seems to have taken the famous Nazis advice in his new book, In My Time. Cheney remains staunch in his convictions on issues from the invasion of Iraq to the use of torture. Telling NBC News in an interview that there are gonna be heads exploding all over Washington as a result of the revelations in the book. Mr. Cheneys memoir follows one by his colleague and friend Donald Rumsfeld. As each promotes his own version of history, there are people challenging and confronting them. Mr. Rumsfelds book title, Known and Unknown, is drawn from a notorious response he gave in one of his Pentagon press briefings as secretary of defense. On Feb. 12, 2002, attempting to explain the lack of evidence linking Iraq to weapons of mass destruction, Rumsfeld said: [T]here are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns the ones we dont know we dont know. Mr. Rumsfelds cryptic statement gained fame, emblematic of his disdain for reporters. It stands as a symbol of the lies and manipulations that propelled the U.S. into the disastrous invasion and occupation of Iraq.One person convinced by Mr. Rumsfelds rhetoric was Jared August Hagemann.Mr. Hagemann enlisted in the Army to serve his country, to confront the threats repeated by Defense Secretary Rumsfeld. When the U.S. Army Ranger received the call for his most recent deployment (his wife cant recall if it was his seventh or eighth), the pressure became too much. On June 28, 2011, 25-year-old Jared Hagemann shot himself on the Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Seattle. The Pentagon notes that Mr. Hagemann died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but has not yet called it a suicide. Jared had threatened suicide several times before. He was not alone. Five soldiers reportedly committed suicide at Fort Lewis in July. It has been estimated that more than 300,000 returning troops suffer from PTSD or depression. Mr. Hagemanns widow, Ashley JoppaHagemann, found out that Rumsfeld was doing a book signing on the base. On Friday, Aug. 26, she handed Rumsfeld a copy of the program from her late husbands memorial service. She recounted, I told him that I wanted him to see my husband, and so he would know he could put a face with at least one of the soldiers that had lost their lives because of his lies from 9/11. I asked her about Rumsfelds response: All I remember is him saying, Oh, I heard about that. And after that, all I remember is being bombarded with security personnel and being pushed out and told not to return. Unfortunately, its Staff Sgt. Hagemann who will never return to his wife and two little children.In his NBC interview, Mr. Cheney claimed to have played a role in the January 2005 resignation of then-Secretary of State Colin Powell. Mr. Powells former chief of staff, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, called the claim utter nonsense. More importantly, though, is Col. Wilkersons unflinching call for accountability for those involved in leading the nation to war in Iraq including punishment for himself. A central pillar of the invasion of Iraq was Mr. Powells Feb. 5, 2003, speech before the United Nations, which laid out the case of weapons of mass destruction. Col. Wilkerson, who takes full responsibility for coordinating Mr. Powells address, told me: It was probably the biggest mistake of my life. I regret it to this day. I regret not having resigned over it.The Center for Constitutional Rights and lawyer/blogger Glenn Greenwald are among those who have long called for criminal prosecution of Mr. Cheney, Mr. Rumsfeld and other Bush administration officials. Said Col. Wilkerson, Id be willing to testify, and Id be willing to take any punishment Im due. Col. Wilkerson says Mr. Cheneys book is written out of fear, fear that one day someone will Pinochet Dick Cheney, referring to the former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, who was arrested in Britain and held for a year before being released. A Spanish judge had wanted him extradited to be tried for crimes against humanity. As we approach the 10th anniversary of 9/11, and the casualties mount on all sides, the books by Mr. Rumsfeld and Mr. Cheney remind us once again of wars first casualty: truth.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2011 Since Florida remains one of four or five must-win states for the next U.S. President, Tea Partiers across the state and especially along the very vocal Southwest coast may carry a powerful voice in national politics through the 2012 election, now only 14 months away. Here, Florida Weekly lends an ear to their voices and to the voices of those who may seek their support as the important ninth month unfolds. On Sept. 8, for example, President Barack Obama must deliver a state of the union address likely to leave him exposed in the eyes of many even some within his own party as the architect of a failed economic policy, with national unemployment holding at 9.1 percent and a net gain of zero jobs in the last 11 months the first time the jobs economy has remained motionless for that length of time since 1945. Three days later, on Sept. 11, the nation mourns the losses of its most tragic day in recent history, 10 years ago. The next day, on Sept. 12, CNN hosts a nationally televised Tea Party forum in which eight Republican presidential candidates will take hard questions from Tea Partiers in Tampa. And on Sept. 24, the powerful Florida GOP will hold a Presidency 5 straw poll in Orlando to determine which Republican should receive the partys nomination for President. Tea Partiers including Mr. Willoughby will be prominent at that event. On three other occasions when state Republicans held such a straw poll, their choices ultimately became party nominees, leading the Republican bid for the White House (Ronald Reagan in 1979, George H.W. Bush in 1987, and Bob Dole in 1995).A thriving movementIt may not be a party, insist the most vocal Tea Party apologists in Southwest Florida, but its a robust movement, a ship of politically conservative principles and proposals with everybody and nobody at the helm. I dont know a Tea Party leader, quote unquote, and I dont consider myself by any means a Tea Party spokesman, says Trey Radel, the host of a popular conservative morning talk show and ad fest airing each weekday from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. on 92.5 Fox FM radio and TV-6 the kick-off for a lineup that later includes Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Mark Levin. But I am happy and proud of the support I receive to be a conservative voice in Southwest Florida, he adds. Using himself as a model and pointing to an autobiographical online summary of experiences that reads more like a political candidates than a journalists or a media advocates (www.treyradel.com) resume, the effervescent Mr. Radel insists that Tea Partiers and other conservatives both here and elsewhere are trivialized and stereotyped in most media characterizations. Under a banner that says, Lets get the job done, the website describes Mr. Radel as fiscal conservative, free market advocate, patriot, and notes that he is tri-lingual (Spanish and Italian, as well as English), well-traveled (he studied in Rome for a year and backpacked from Colombia to Cambodia), owner of Trey Communications LLC, a media relations company that focuses on advancing conservative causes, and founder of the new nonprofit U.S. Forces Fund to help soldiers wounded abroad and returning home. When Ive helped emcee Tea Party events, or been there, Ive seen not only a diverse age group and a diverse ethnic and racial makeup, but its mostly people with, if I can lay a little sarcasm on you, radical ideas like, Lets return to the Constitution. Or, Get your hands out of my pocket, he says. That was not the case, however, at a recent Town Hall meeting in Fort Myers when U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV, a favorite of many Tea Partiers and a strong advocate of their most significant political positions, took questions from a crowd of several hundred mostly older, mostly white supporters. The event was energetically hosted by Mr. Radel, but it was not a Tea Party event, in name. It was a Republican event. Nevertheless, Rep. Mack vigorously promoted the Tea Party agenda, described this way on a Tea Party website for Lee County: Organizing to limit and eventually stop the excesses and corruption in government by demanding the government operate in compliance with the United States Constitution, balance the federal budget, simplify the tax system, audit federal government agencies, repeal the health-care legislation passed on March 23, 2010, modify the energy policy, reduce earmarks and ban the use of Corexit in the Gulf of Mexico.The specter of a third partyBut that agenda is being pushed from the grassroots by Tea Partiers, not from the cozy offices of Washingtons political elite, the beneficiaries of the two-party system with its big-money influences. Unlike Rep. Macks Republican Party (to whom many or perhaps most of its members belong, partiers say), the Tea Party is neither registered as a third party, nor authorized to raise money for candidates, as a third party would the Green Party, for example. That party championed Ralph Nader and thus cost Democratic candidate Al Gore the presidential election in 2000, according to some pundits. But Tea Party ideas and their tea partiers arguably carry more weight than those of any officially sanctioned third party in memory. I dont know of any Tea Party member who would like to see the Tea Party become a third party, says Mr. Willoughby, a Minnesotan and business owner who retired to Naples several years ago. The organizer of the Naples Tea Party, Mr. Willoughby began partying on the corner of U.S. 41 and Pine Ridge Road in 2009 when he became fed up with big government, he says. Affable, thoughtful and unpretentious in conversation, hes the most prominent private citizen championing Tea Party causes in the region. He also knows personally two Tea Party darlings in state or national office, Gov. Rick Scott and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio. Although he favors Sen. Rubio over any other national politicians and wishes he would run for president next year, he says, nobody in the GOP is getting any slack. Mitt Romney is too much big government and the old way of doing things, he says. As for Rick Perry, Do we really need another Texan? he asks rhetorically? Presumably the unspoken answer is no. So in saying none of us wants to see a third party, its still true that the Republicans have just as much to fear from the Tea Party as the Democrats, Mr. Willoughby insists.A cautious alliance Others agree Mr. Radel, for example, who like Mr. Willoughby, is quick to put distance between his style of conservatism and former President George W. Bushs style. The Tea Party sprang up simply because they didnt like Barack Obama, and because people were so fed up with President Bush. Bush was in favor of a big bailout, he grew the Department of Education, and he added a new department the Department of Homeland Security. The Tea Party was infuriated by many of the things he did, says Mr. Radel. As a result, There are Republicans who are a little leery of the Tea Party, Mr. Willoughby says. Members of the Republican Party are calling us hobbits. We stand more on the conservative side as far as social, and definitely in fiscal issues and not all Republicans like that. We are not progressive, we love the Constitution as it was written. We dont think the text needs to be considered a living and breathing thing to be changed at the whim of whoever is in power at the time. And one more thing, Mr. Willoughby notes. Our big push from day one has always been: individual freedom that comes with personal responsibility. Thats it. For Republicans such as Dr. Frank Schwerin, head of Collier Countys Republican Party, or Marilyn Stout, president of the Fort Myers Womens Republican Club Federated, a wait-andsee attitude is best when it comes to the Tea Party. It worries me that too much emphasis is going to be put on the Tea Party, says Mrs. Stout, who describes herself as a fiscal conservative but a social moderate. In New York, there was a special election where a Democrat won in a conservative district because there was a Tea Party candidate. The Republican Party sometimes has a tendency to lean so far to the right that its difficult to come back to the middle to appeal to fiscal, rather than social values. There are a lot of issues: The situation in Middle East with the wars, the budget disaster, the debt limit. Is the Tea Party going to affect local elections here? No, I dont think so. I dont think theres anybody running against Connie Mack, either. I do think Marco Rubio did the correct thing by not joining their Tea Party caucus he has a brilliant future in front of him if he makes the right moves at the right time. The fact that Sen. Rubio can appeal to more moderate Republicans as well as to Tea Party members makes sense to Dr. Schwerin, because the GOP is a big tent, he says echoing not only the phrase used by other Republicans and conservatives such as Mr. Willoughby (a registered Republican), Mr. Radel and Mrs. Stout, but first hammered out by the late Lee Atwater, then chairman of the Republican National Committee, during a Virginia political race in Nov., 1989. Our party is a big tent, Mr. Atwater said. We can house many views on many issues. Abortion is no exception. The comment remains almost eerily contemporary. Some of the Tea Party people are libertarians, some are Christian fundamentalists, theres a whole band of them, theyre not all monolithic, says Dr. Schwerin. Some of them are very pro choice. For example, they dont believe the government should tell you who to marry or what to do. Left and right converge when you talk about getting rid of government. All of which leaves Dr. Schwerin deeply concerned about next years presidential race, and the influence of Tea Party members on it. They may give up on the Republicans, if the Republicans dont heed their message, he explains. Their argument would be that the Democrats and the Republicans are the same. A third party what Im terrified of is a Ross Perot kind of thing (Mr. Perot campaigned both as an Independent in 1992, when George H.W. Bush lost a second-term bid for the White House, and in 1996 as a Reform Party candidate). That may have been the predecessor to the Tea Party. They could easily come up with a candidate, and take away 8 or 10 percent of the vote (from the Republican candidate for president). But a force like that doesnt help you if you cant harness it in November if you create a crackpot third party and ruin the Republican chances. But thats a non-starter, insist both Barry Willoughby and Trey Radel. Will the Tea Party damage Republican chances? Absolutely not, insists Mr. Radel. Its just part of whats under the huge umbrella of what a Republican is all about returning the country back to its roots. TEA PARTYFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOSen.

BY MOLLIE PAGESpecial to Florida WeeklyFresh into his first week as the newly assigned director of Collier County Public Schools Adult & Community Education Department, Robert Breitbard understands what it takes to unite a community through education. Having attended Immokalee High School and Edison State College before pursuing further study, Mr. Brietbard has also been on the other side of the lectern as a teacher in Collier County. This vantage point provides him with dual perspective, something sure to be an asset during the next year as cochair of United Way of Collier Countys $2.3 million campaign.As such, Mr. Breitbard is helping to spread the phrase LIVE UNITED across the community along with cochair Nancy Pelotte. Adults learn languages better when they are taught phrases rather than individual words, he says. Can I help you? Le puedo ayudar? Mwen ka ede ou?, he says (in English, Spanish and Haitian-Creole). The phrase opens the doors of communication and supports United Ways mission to educate residents from a variety of cultures on the services they can receive through the agencys 30 human service charity partners. Raising money starts with raising awareness, and this cant be done unless you can communicate the same message to both givers and receivers, he says. Like many of United Ways partner agencies, Mr. Breitbards department in the Collier County school system provides invaluable education to adult residents. In fact, even though two-thirds of Colliers registered voters dont have a child attending a local public school, almost 10,000 adults attend classes through his division each year. Eighty percent of the future jobs in demand will require more than a high school diploma, but less than a bachelors degree, he says, adding, Through community classes and Career Technical Centers, were helping the county improve its job force. The school district supports United Way because they share an objective: to support initiatives that educate the community about needs both in and outside the school system. By funding vital human service programs through its partner agencies, United Way reaches one in four residents, a high percentage of whom are children attending a public school or adults attending adult or community education classes. Contributions to United Way of Collier County fund initiatives such as health care for the working poor, education for at-risk children, safety for the abused, therapy for the ill, food for the hungry and advocacy for those harmed.Mr. Breitbard believes the only way to LIVE UNITED is to talk the talk and says Collier County residents can help educate the community about United Way by becoming a voice for those in need.Talk the talk by joining the sixth annual Walk for the Way setting out at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at North Collier Regional Park. For $10 adults or $5 students, participants can stroll 2.5 miles along the parks nature trail and then enjoy festivities in the gymnasium including raffles, prizes, educational booths and appearances by local personalities and some former Miami Dolphin football players.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA22 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2011 HEALTHY LIVING I am proud to present Part 2 of my report on the first Joint Commission survey of the NCH Healthcare Group. Let me begin by saying how rare such an audit is. Most medical offices in America are reluctant to volunteer to undergo this rigorous review that complies with the Joint Commissions high standards. I must admit that when I had a solo practice in rheumatology, internal medicine and geriatrics, my two colleagues and I never even considered the option of accreditation. That reality adds to the importance of the following audit results. Sleep Center, Cheryl Attree, manager Ms. Attree and sleep tech Michelle McDougall clearly recounted each step of a sleep center patients experience and shared performance data and a quality questionnaire to underscore our care and concern for patients. Edison Village Lab, Mat Treganza, manager Phlebotomist Luis Trujillo deftly explained the process, from checking patients in utilizing patient identifiers and hand hygiene, to extracting correct orders out of NextGen EMR, to drawing and processing specimens. Surveyors were impressed with Mr. Trujillos knowledge of Joint Commission standards. Edison Village, Sue LaCount, practice manager Paramedic Valerie Ouillette detailed how she cares for her patients, documents in NextGen EMR, draws blood and runs lab tests all while she was caring for several patients! Theresa Holland, LPN, and pediatrician Dulce Dudley demonstrated applications in the NextGen EMR that allow this busy pediatric office to easily graph a childs growth and document giving vaccine information to parents. The surveyor was duly impressed. Commons Building, Karen Judd, Zulma Garcia and Earl Robinson, practice managers Equally impressive were Diane Bogner, radiology PSR, and Rosy Gorrostieta, physical therapy PSR/team leader, who demonstrated outstanding customer service skills in helping patients register for treatment. Commons Building Anticoagulation Clinic, Miriam Means, practice manager Jean Harvey, a recent addition to the group, expertly demonstrated how the clinic uses established protocols to ensure safe administration of anticoagulation therapy. Her skill underscored NCH Healthcare Groups commitment to effective orientation and training for new employees. Orthopedics, Barbara Ann Gaetzi, practice manager Jennifer Cruz detailed her role in caring for orthopedic patients, reviewing medication management, showing the locked sample cabinet and going over the process she uses to log in medications and track who is given which sample (critical information in the event of a medication recall). Having a credible, independent, knowledgeable third party like the Joint Commission review, educate, motivate and generally validate is invaluable for our institution and our communitys health. Clearly, were not perfect. But the strides weve made toward making NCH a world-class hospital are a credit to everyone who works here. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of NCH Healthcare SystemsBend and stretch at Salutation NationLocal yoga practitioners of all abilities can roll out their mats and bend, stretch and breathe as part of Salutation Nation, an international celebration of yoga, from 9-10 a.m. Saturday.

Local yoga studios, representatives from Lululemon Athletica and others will distribute information about their programs. The Lululemon boutique will host an after party. Participation is free. Bring your mat and water. Parkinsons group hosts lunch, numerous programs The Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida holds exercise, speech, dance and art therapy classes at multiple locations in Naples, Marco Island and Bonita Springs for those who have a diagnosis of Parkinsons disease. A monthly Lunch Bunch social gathering as well as support programs for families and caregivers are also offered, and various opportunities are available for volunteers at PASFi headquarters in the Hibiscis Center, 2950 Tamiami Trail N. The next Lunch Bunch will be a potluck meal at the PASFi office beginning at noon Wednesday, Sept. 14. One of the newest support groups is Sons and Daughters of PD. Naples resident Pattie Place, whose father had Parkinsons disease, is organizing the group and will post each meetings discussion online for out-of-town family of local Parkinsons patients. For more information, e-mail Ms. Place at bubbamom34119@gmail.com. For caregivers who cannot leave the home to attend a support group, PASFI partners with Jewish Family Services of Collier County and the Heil Luthringer Foundation for MS to provide a telephone conference call facilitated by a licensed mental health professional. For Lunch Bunch reservations or more information about PASFi classes, programs and volunteer jobs, call Executive Director Ruth Hubing at 4173465, e-mail pasfied@aol.com or visit www.PASFi.org. The Joint Commission survey, Part 2Common antibiotic helps lung disease victims Adding a common antibiotic to the usual daily treatment regimen for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, commonly called COPD, can reduce the occurrence of acute exacerbations and improve quality of life, reports new results from a clinical trial funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. The study appeared in the Aug. 25 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Acute exacerbations account for a significant part of COPDs health burden, said Susan B. Shurin, acting director of the NHLBI. These promising results with azithromycin may help us reduce that burden and improve the lives of patients at risk. COPD exacerbations are sudden onsets of worsened cough, wheeze, and labored breathing, which are typically induced by bacterial and/or viral infection. Azithromycin is already prescribed for a wide variety of bacterial infections including pneumonia and strep throat. Previous research suggested that this antibiotic might work for COPD exacerbations, but this study was the first to enroll a large number of COPD patients and treat exacerbations with this drug over a long time. Participants had a history of exacerbations in the previous year or needed oxygen therapy. Eighty percent of the study participants were already taking other medications normally used to manage COPD, including inhaled steroids and long-acting bronchodilators. This study suggests that azithromycins benefits extend beyond those of other therapies, noted James Kiley, Ph.D., director of the NHLBIs division of lung diseases. Dr. Kiley added that more research is needed to determine the longterm effects of azithromycin treatment and to identify which group of patients would benefit the most. COPD is a progressive disease of the lungs that affects more than 12 million people in the United States and is now the third leading cause of death in this country. There is currently no cure, though a combination of drugs and lifestyle changes can help manage the symptoms. The term COPD includes two main conditions emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Most of the time, COPD is diagnosed in middle-aged or older people. The disease isnt passed from person to personyou cant catch it from someone else. It is common in smokers or past-smokers.

Its not fun, but vomit must be examined for evidence of chewed packaging, plants, food, pills or other important clues. Many poisonings progress to weakness and depression or nervous stimulation, including tremors and seizures. Pets may stop eating and drinking, or may drink excessive amounts, which could suggest liver or kidney involvement. Rapid or slow breathing, with changes in tongue and gum color from pink to white, blue or brown is an important symptom. If you suspect poisoning, stay calm. Panicking will not help your pet and may waste precious time. If your pet is not showing any serious signs of illness described ab ove, contact your regular veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (888426-4435) to determine if your pet needs to be seen, or if treatment needs to be given at home before you head to the veterinarian. If your pet is having difficulty breathing, is having seizures, is bleeding or is unconscious, go to your regular veterinarian or an emergency clinic immediately. Take any evidence including chewed containers and labels and even vomit. This information is key to helping your veterinarian save your pet. Be sure to always have the numbers of your pets regular veterinarian, your local veterinary emergency clinic and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center. It could save your pets life. Preventing pet poisoning means putting the bad stuff awayproducts. Store out of reach in a high cupboard, not under the sink. Be familiar with the plants in and around your home, and have only nontoxic plants. Never give any medication or supplement to your pet unless recommended or approved by your veterinarian. Many toxic substances arent well-known to dog owners. For example, dont let your dog have significant amounts of raisins or grapes, macadamia nuts, moldy cheese, chocolate, onions, garlic or anything made with xylitol, which is a deadly ingredient for pets. If xylitol is in something in your home, your dog needs to be protected from it. Once the preventive measures are in place, you need to know the signs of poisoning. Many (but not all) substances first cause stomach upset, including vomiting The best way to save your pet from an accidental poisoning is to know which items are poisonous and to keep those out of your pets reach. What do you need to know? We touched base with Dr. Steven Hansen of the ASPCAs Animal Poison Control Center to find out. Some poisonings are a result of something an animal gets into, like a household product. But a surprising number of cases come from something intentionally given to an animal by an owner whos trying to help. The classic example of the latter is when an elderly cat is given an extra-strength acetaminophen for arthritis. The owner is trying to help, but unfortunately, even one capsule of this common human medicine can kill a cat. Dogs can figure out their way into trouble that their owners never envisioned. This includes opening cabinets to get cleaning products and counter-surfing to reach food items and pill vials. You need to realize that pets are basically like toddlers who can open any child-proof container, and you should take similar precautions: Keep products such as medications, harmful foods and cleaning products in a secure cabinet above countertop height. Use a kitchen garbage can with a lid. Always read labels, especially on flea and tick products, and on lawn and garden PET TALES Out of reach Many pets are accidentally poisoned when prescription medications are left where they can be grabbed.BY DR.

North, Naples, FL 34102 www.brookdaleliving.comAssisted Living Facility # AL9584 Driver Safety Program MUSINGSI shall now therefore humbly propose my own thoughts, which I hope will not be liable to the least objection.... I profess, in the sincerity of my heart, that I have not the least personal interest in endeavoring to promote this necessary work.... Jonathan Swift, A Modest ProposalThey were gathered all around me, begging for the ultimate pourquoi story. And all I could think of was my own child-time reading of Jonathan Swifts A Modest Proposal. This essay was my first encounter with formal, gentlemanly and literate writing that called for clear exegesis affirming that what you see is not what you get. It was just the beginning of the rewiring of the passionate enchantment that is the ever-emerging structure of my meta-whirlding. Does anyone mean what they say? Is that possible? How did you become a pirate? Please tell us.... Oh, they be just so much whining to me. And me: just wanting to brush it all away like untimely hair, wind blown into eyes. But like all great myth-makers, this one cannot let go of the chance to create that origin story. So, thus have I said: We made a tree house, my friend and I. It wasnt really a house and it wasnt really in a tree. But there was a sturdily large blanket, propped up with a broomstick and decorated with a crescent moon. The moon was my idea. My friend chose to ignore its presence. He was more interested in what he brought under the blanket. First the flashlight, bulky and infamously bright. And then, the collection. The Marvel Universe. Comics. My wet dream was the ads in the back: Devices to see through clothes, powders to cause itching, eye glass mirrors to see around corners, plastic poo. It was endless speculative pleasure. For him it was clearer, crisper: It was X-Men and Spider Man and Iron Man. It was the Fantastic Four. It was Doctor Doom, foot planted on the hapless back of the Silver Surfer. For him, the key was the endless treasure of the text. And the history of the text. All the Marvel inhabitants and their changing forms. When they were created. Who they fought and when and why. I listened to every word, to every sharing of what had been and what is now and what will be and what is not. And I had thoughts in between: I liked the concept of the speech bubbles versus the thought bubbles. In and out: How amazing it seemed, to show it all, just like that. And the characters who leapt from one frame to the next. Such defiance of which I only dreamt every night. And then the paper: Not like the lined and holed loose leaf I wrote on at school. This paper was like the surface of the moon herself, infinitely bumpy and coarse. Terrain worth exploring. And explore it I did, under the ululation of his story voice. Under that voice I noted how this paper could not be tamed by ink. There was no clear sounding of the depths of infinite corrugation. And I saw the light shining inside the blanket darkness, a clear path for dancing dust mote chaos. I was un-locatable. I asked him: Will we always be friends? He flashed a look that both squelched the dawning of the meaning of the inquiry and pacified it. Absolutely. His stories continued. He was bigger than me. But he never beat me up. The next week, walking down the school corridor, I saw him coming toward me. He was with others, his size. They all looked like super heroes. I smiled, so big that my face hurt. Either he didnt see me or he pretended not to see me. It was a different world. With different rules. But he never beat me up.

DAN CREIGHTON REMEMBERS TWO COMputer geniuses standing over him as they provided step-by-step instructions for using the new-fangled machine on his desk. Unfortunately, they werent around the next day when a lengthy letter he was about to finish typing disappeared with a push of a button. T he screen went blank and Mr. Creightons document was never seen again, sucked into the technology black hole birthed by the inception of the personal computer in the 1980s. Even though I had that computer, I kept going back to the typewriter, admits Mr. Creighton, then working as a money manager in California. I was more comfortable with it. Ah, the early days of computing before clouds, recovery programs and save buttons ensured a version of a document was stored somewhere. Local business owners remember those neophyte days of technology gone amok, of lost or misplaced files, user and ID10T errors, and those darn bomb messages that sent many early Mac users into panic mode. One could only reboot and hope most of the document had magically survived. Michael Wynn, president of Sunshine Ace Hardware, is still haunted by an upgrade gone awry five years ago. I mistakenly listened to the software developer who said it would take just four to six hours for the conversion. It took 18 hours and there was nothing we could do except watch the screen kick through its progressive percentage of completion. It was one of the few times a technology problem was visible to our customers. Wynns six-store franchise now has multiple back-ups in place, including those old manual credit card swipes. Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co., a CPA firm with offices in Naples and Fort Myers, has always invested in state-of-the-are equipment, says partner Gail Markham. We made the big technology leap 20 years ago when our first IBMs were huge with very little capacity, not to mention very expensive, she says, adding those early machines didnt always live up to their hype.

MONEY & INVESTINGUnemployment is our problem, and ours to solveThe average Joe is trying to pay bills, keep a job or get a job, make payments on a home severely under water or, failing to have done so for any of a host of reasons, is facing eviction as a foreclosure process is under way. The thought of retirement funds other than Social Security is beyond his mental reach. The thought of funding his childrens college education is not on the front burner actually it is nowhere in the kitchen. For many wanting and needing work, the recent passage of Labor Day 2011 was not the happiest of times. The intellectual part of understanding the world in which we live and the movements in the global financial markets can hypnotically fixate eyes and ears. Keeping abreast of such factoids is part of my professsion and usually the focus of this column. It sometimes diverts my (and possibly your) attention away from the truly critical issues of U.S. employment, that is, underemployment, underemployment and those who have given up on being employed. For many, myself included, employment problems are viewed at arms length until the problems morph into the faces of those you know. Sometimes, to our surprise, its our own face in the mirror. The current unemployment problem of some 9 percent is not all to be laid at this presidents feet, nor fingers pointed to the prior Oval Office occupant. Some hail back to Jimmy Carter and Lyndon Johnson; others believe, But for Roosevelt and creation of Social Security You can add or subtract names until you get to an acceptable political party affiliation depending on how you lean. The problems are not all corporate leaderships either; they cant change the fact that other countries offer: labor at 50 cents an hour; lower corporate tax rates and certain corporate tax policy; factories where there are no concerns for product and environmental liability suits; no health care mandates for employees, and plenty more. Because the overseas environment is more competitive than much of the U.S., the overseas profits have very much remained there or been redeployed there. Approximately half of the trillions of corporate cash is held overseas; it might well stay there until U.S. tax policy is conducive to bringing it back home. However, equally true is that CEO compensation packages have robbed the nonsenior management (often the middle class/ middle management) of their fair share of trickle down corporate wealth; the profit distribution never seemed to break the executive floor. Enter the consumer, all consumers. Theres a little blame to go there too. Did we really need all those things? Were minimal savings, maximum spending, and retirement money stored as homeowner equity a strategy that we so willingly should have embraced? And if blame could be properly apportioned among government, business and the consumer, would that right the ship? No. The focus needs to be on jobs. Infrastructure projects are the buzz. Though it seems that everything the government manages has deficit, losses and wacky accounting, infrastructure is needed and the only entity that can undertake it is the government. (Albeit, not to the exclusion of partnering with private enterprises.) Maybe, beyond infrastructure, jobs can be created in those industries that cannot be or should not be exported. For instance, put money into natural resource development; this is critical. Any lowering of U.S. gasoline prices would have a significant impact on the average Joe. It is just about as important as mortgage rates, except it impacts an even broader crosssection of the population. The U.S. needs to protect its competitive edge in the few industries where it needs to keep its secret formulas within the confines of the 50 states, such as our pharmaceutical or aeronautics industries. I accept the reality that the world wants our pharmaceutical and aviation secrets, formulas, advancements, etc. Everyone wants our crops. Granted we have the most well-developed farming community in the world. But maybe there are ways to make output even greater. And what do we do with technology? I view it as creative destruction: creating new jobs and destroying others. Even if there is an even exchange, there is always a dislocation. But some thoughts come to mind about things that ordinary citizens can do to help the employment problem. And this is suggestive, and not intended to be preachy just ideas that might trigger readers to creatively think about employment issues. Consider paying a little more to employ a U.S. person or paying a little more to buy a U.S. product. Do not send web development overseas to India, Russia, etc. Offer your professional services for free to friends and colleagues who are undertaking a new business venture. Mentor and encourage an unemployed college grad until place in a job: personal encouragement, helping network and make introductions, keeping them accountable to a job search disciplines; etc. Undertake some expansion of your business during the trough with an expectation of a multiple fold payoff when the economy does turn. It is not that protectionism is being embraced. It is taking care of our own in a highly competitive world that does not care one bit about U.S. employment issues. One can point to politicians failings all day long. But it does not excuse us from doing all we can on a daily basis to help others to get back on their feet or start a new dream of financial stability. Buying American and hiring American is of great value; buying and hiring from your own backyard, even more so.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB6 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2011 THE MOTLEY FOOL A glance at a companys inventory levels can help you assess it as a possible investment. Inventory refers to everything in a companys pipeline. There are three main categories of inventory: raw materials, work in progress and finished goods. Imagine Home Surgery Kits Inc. (ticker: OUCHH). Making its products involves ordering, receiving, storing and using materials, which are assembled into finished products. Inventory is likely to include half-assembled kits, finished boxes waiting to be shipped, and products returned from retailers. Having too little inventory will hold up production when shortages occur. Having too much will generate high storage costs and tie up money that could be used elsewhere. Finished goods sitting on shelves a long time also risk not being sold. Many American companies have adopted just-in-time inventory systems, pioneered by Ford and then the Japanese. These systems have firms holding precisely the minimum necessary inventory, replenish-Inventory ABCs What Is This Thing Called The Motley Fool?Remember Shakespeare? Remember As You Like It? In Elizabethan days, Fools were the only people who could get away with telling the truth to the King or Queen. The Motley Fool tells the truth about investing, and hopes youll laugh all the way to the bank. Doing the splits Q What does split-adjusted mean? N.H., Santa Maria, Calif.A It reflects a stock price that has been changed to account for stock splits that have occurred over time. Consider Coca-Cola. It went -public in 1919 at $40 per share and has split its stock 10 times since then. Its stock price has recently been trading for around $67 per share. So have the shares appreciated by only $25 since 1919? Far from it. Remember the effects of splitting. With each split, you end up with more shares, worth proportionately less. (A 2-for-1 split, for example, gives you twice as many shares, each worth half as much.) Thanks to splits, one 1919 $40 share of Coca-Cola has now become 4,608 shares. If the stock had never split, each share would be worth around $300,000, and few people could afford to buy even one! (That price reflects -dividends that were paid regularly over the years.) Youll see the term split-adjusted when reviewing historical stock prices. For example, in August 1970, Cokes stock price was roughly $0.49, adjusted for splits and dividends. The price was actually around $72 per share then, but to compare it with todays price, you need to adjust the price for splits that occurred between then and now. That way, you can tell at a glance that Cokes shares havent fallen from $72 to $67 since 1970, but instead have risen from the equivalent of roughly $0.49 to $65 a 130-fold increase.Q Whats business shrinkage? T.R., Hickory, N.C.A Its the routine loss of inventory, such as through accidental breakage or theft. Shoplifting, for example, shrinks many retailers profits significantly, and retailers make allowances for shrinkage in their plans and reports. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us. Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest InvestmentTo Educate, Amuse & Enriching supplies continually, as needed. This can increase efficiency and profitability, but can be problematic if demand spikes. When evaluating inventory on a firms balance sheet, compare it with year-ago levels and with revenue growth. If inventory is rising faster than revenue, it could signal a sales slowdown. If inventory growth lags sales, either the company is not meeting demand or its successfully tightening controls on production processes and distribution. To get a sense of how quickly products are moving, calculate the inventory turnover. From the companys income statement, find the last years cost of goods sold. Divide that by the average value of inventory (from the balance sheet) between the beginning and end of the year. (Or, call the companys investor relations department and ask for the number, or look it up online at sites such as http:// moneycentral.msn.com.) High and growing turnover numbers reflect well-managed companies freeing up funds for other uses. Compare a companys results with those of its competitors. My dumbest mistake was to sell my Google shares. I had only about six and they were priced way below $100. I instead bought shares of a Canadian search-engine company, due to its low price. Now I am kicking myself for the stupid move, as Google went way up and the other company tanked. Lesson learned. O.L., onlineThe Fool Responds: You may have made the common mistake of thinking that a $100 stock is more expensive than, say, a $50 stock. Never evaluate a stock price just on its own. You need to compare it to earnings, or revenue, or some other numbers, to get some meaning out of it. That Google price, for instance, has proven to have been cheap, as shares trade above $500 now. You might look for a low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, or better still, a low P/E paired with strong revenue and earnings growth rates. The more factors you evaluate, the better. And be sure to assess a companys competitive advantages and growth potential, too. Some stocks are really cheap because the company is in trouble. The Motley Fool TakeThings have been changing in a big way at General Motors (NYSE: GM). CEO Dan Akerson and his team have been paying attention to how Ford has turned itself around, and thats a good thing. GM is aiming to reduce its number of models sold around the world and build them on the smallest possible number of platforms, industry-speak for a set of common dimensions and parts that can be shared among different models to lower costs and streamline production. Mary Barra, GMs new product chief, expects that by 2018, the company will be building 90 percent of its vehicles on just 14 global GMs Plan for World Domination Name That CompanyBased in Kansas, I trace my roots back to the 1920s, when my founders were developing technologies for the oil industry.

That should result in better, more competitive products, which can be sold at higher prices with fewer of those marginkilling cash back incentive campaigns. And that means strong sales and greater margins. Add in strict cost controls, and the result is solid, sustainable profits. The trick will be in the execution. Its one thing for GM managers to lay out a sensible plan and another to get GMs cumbersome bureaucracy to play along. Itll take some time before we know how well this revamp is going to work out in practice, and continued skepticism may well be warranted.

Sometimes being the first to test drive cutting-edge technology can backfire. Karen Mosteller, Ms. Markhams partner, remembers jumping at the chance to convert to the new Citrix system before the software companies had worked out all the kinks. We experienced a lot of instability until the software caught up to the technology, she says. At that point we were bleeding edge. Even IT experts have their duh moments. Michael Tarabokija, the tech whiz at the CPA firm, has become so attached to his smartphone, I swam with it once in my swimming shorts. Eventually, most have came to love computers and technology. Now an integral part of the modern office and business, computers werent always the savvy, almost intuitive machines they are today. They were slow, cumbersome and less than engaging with nothing but a DOS prompt. Some required multiple program diskettes and a kid-glove treatment, or a little manipulating, as was the case of Naples Airport Authoritys executive director Ted Soliday who back in the 1980s finagled his Apple2E to run an IBM spell check program. The IBM program had more applications and was quicker and better than AppleWorks, he recalls. All it took was a touch of silver solder to get the Apple to accept the IBM programs. When the computer crashed, as all eventually do, even the Apple dealer was stunned by the transformation. He asked, How did you do that? says Mr. Soliday. Despite the problems or maybe because of them many of us remember our first computer as we do our first love. Tom Uhler, a principal of Uhler and Vertick Financial Planners, says hes revealing his age when he points to the Apple2+ as his first computer. It had no hard drive, just an external floppy drive. I had to load the program off of the floppy, then take out the accounting program and put in a data disk. I eventually sprung for a second floppy drive. All it had was a DOS prompt. There was no graphical user interface. Floppy drives were the bane of Mr. Solidays earliest experiences with a computer, an Apple2E that had two external hard drives. The top drive was dedicated to the main program; the bottom for a spreadsheet or whatever project he was working on. If you wanted to do spell check, you had to take out the main program and keep the lower disk in, he recalls. You were changing floppy drives all the time, but it was better than a typewriter. Networking those individual desk computers was the looming mainframe, a computer so large it often required its own air-conditioned room. No one was allowed within 10 feet of the mainframe room, says Mr. Creighton. Some veteran users got a jumpstart into the computer realm, introduced during childhood or school years. Others were already working real jobs in the real world when these desktop devices suddenly invaded their worlds. Robert Fay, vice president of Seminole Gulf Railway, was a mere babe of 3 or 4 when he decided to play with a stack of program cards his father, a transportation consultant, was converting to reelto-reel. I got it good, he remembers. In spite of my age I had to sort them back to the proper order The familys first home computer was an Apple clone, a Franklin. During high school Mr. Fay used an IBM PC, and as a college junior a Mac. It wasnt a singlebox Mac. This one behaved more like an IBM PC. It had a monitor separate from the computer. Mr. Wynns first computer was an Apple2E he begged his parents for in the early s. It had a five-and-a-quarter floppy drive and a monochromatic screen. I used it for homework, reports and, at that point, a lot of games. It was a great machine, but it was slow. You had to load everything into the memory. Mr. Soliday was introduced to computers aboard the aircraft he flew while serving as a Marine pilot in Vietnam. After a medical discharge, he returned to college and enrolled in computer classes. I could program four or five different languages on the big old IBM mainframe, he says. That was back when you had to punch a punch card. I had 2,000 cards for one program, and I hated having to find the stupid card that had an error if I made an error. But I really got into computers. Collier County Tax Collector Larry Ray was also introduced to computers in the military and took graduate classes in programming during college in the 1970s. We used an IBM mainframe and you had to get your results from the guys in the computer room. Navigating the early days of the computer world also meant learning the lingo hardware, software, diskettes and frequent calls to the predecessor of the IT guy. During my training, Im thinking, What are you talking about? recalls Mr. Creighton, president of the eponymous Cape Coral-based commercial development and construction firm. We had a software guy and a hardware guy and none of us knew what software or hardware was. Today, computers and technology are a necessity in the business environment. There arent too many things we do that dont involve a computer one way or another, says Mr. Wynn. We have a separate data server that collects a mirror image of point of sales and inventory. We use the data to learn more about merchandising assortment changes and can even measure the speed of checkout. I learned to love the organization and accountability of a computer, says Mr. Creighton. The applications today are pretty amazing. I can track everything. Even old letters. Now, I can pull up a letter or correspondence sent to me six months ago, he says. Mr. Uhler jokes that hes a whiz on Excel. I get teased because I know every Excel shortcut, he says. Im not the first to adapt to things but once I do I really embrace them. We have instant access to research, whether it be for tax, litigation, consulting or continuing education, says Ms. Markham. We also have 24/7 access to each other, our clients, our friends, families and our networks. Today, smartphones and iPads are the two technological tools these business people say they cant live without. Im in love with my iPad. I love getting instant information no matter where I am, says Mr. Creighton. I have a BlackBerry and Im about to switch to an iPhone to coordinate it with my iPad. The connectivity and instant communication what businesspeople love most about technology is also what they dislike. Sometimes its just hard to unplug, says Mr. Soliday. Computers today are half of my day, he says. I cant get past e-mail. I carry a BlackBerry. Its always there and hard to get away from. Mr. Uhler has an iPhone and is eyeing an iPad a move he hopes will reduce the physical clutter of f ile folders and loose-leaf notebooks. Hes also looking to the cloud, hoping to one day access all of those former paper files from either device. Its funny because theres almost a pecking order to computers and technology, he says. The older guys Ive worked with thought I was a genius because I could help with minor computer problems. I think my partners a genius because he can help me, and he thinks his younger brother is a genius because he is a genius. Ive learned theres always someone who knows less than you and always someone who knows more. And if you need something explained, find a 14-year-old. FIRSTFrom page 1 Be In the Know.

For information about gala tickets and sponsorship opportunities, call Carrie Horner at 436-6100 or visit www.cbia. net. CBIA prepares for 21st annual Sand Dollar celebrationThe luxury golf course community of Mediterra is closing in on its sales total for all of 2010. Named Community of the Year with homes priced above $2 million by the Collier Building Industry Association in 2010, Mediterra reports 54 sales and pending transactions through the first six months of 2011. By comparison, the 64 sales were recorded in all of 2010. The closed and pending sales through the first half of 2011 totaled just under $70 million, compared to sales of $97 million last year and $47 million in 2009. People shopping for a new luxury home are realizing that inventory is being depleted and prices are starting to rise, says Mark Wilson, president of London Bay Homes, which is responsible for all sales and marketing activity at Mediterra, which straddles the Lee/ Collier county line. For homes priced between $1 million and $2 million in the Naples area, Mr. Wilson adds, prices have risen for 10 consecutive months. Local real estate analyst Michael Timmerman, a senior associate with Fishkind & Associates, believes the trend will continue through 2011. The luxury market continues to show improvement as we move through 2011, and its my opinion that improvement will continue through this upcoming season, Mr. Timmerman says. Potential buyers are continuing to see an opportunity to purchase residential real estate in the best locations in Florida. Along Livingston Road in North Naples, Mediterra encompasses 1,700 acres and will have a maximum of 950 homes. More than 1,000 acres are dedicated to golf, parks and nature preserves. Community amenities including two 18-hole championship golf courses, a private beach club with dining and a pool overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, tennis, fitness and spa facilities, and more than eight miles of bicycle and walking paths are membership-owned.

All those familiar sights and sites, up there on the big screen: Look, theres downtown! Theres the beach! Theres the courthouse!Maybe its the satisfaction of knowing firsthand whats behind the scenes and around the corner. Or perhaps its the sneaking suspicion that if your locale is good enough to be featured in a film, maybe you could be movie material, too. Its an odd experience, where you focus on the background, and wish the actors would move out of the way because theyre blocking a familiar view. While its far from a thriving movie destination like New York City, a number of films have been shot locally, on what the Collier County Film Commission calls the Paradise Coast. From the Everglades to Fort Myers, directors have captured our beaches, islands, palm trees, sun and small towns on celluloid and digital video.

A preview reception takes place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, at the art center. Guests will be able to vote for the Shows of Shows coveted Peoples Choice and first place awards. Admission to the reception, which is sponsored by Whole Foods Market, is free for NAA members and $10 for others. The Show of Shows attracted a record number of submissions this year, with nearly 120 artists entering mixed media, pastels, watercolor, fiber art, photographs, clay, wood sculpture, bronze and more. Included are works by instructors of NAA adult and ARTScool classes, among them Jos Maria Castillo, Judy Chinski, Julieta de Palacious, Don Gilmore, Patty Kane, Jan Krasowski, Sam Platt, Mary Parkman Rowe and Donna Torrance. Four pieces in the Show of Shows are by students who participated in the most recent ARTScool intern program.

Everyone was dressed up: The women wore skirts and heels, the men tucked in their shirts. One man even had on a blazer. Inevitably, someone brought out a bottle. Shots all around, the guy in the blazer said. There was a scramble for paper cups. A woman disappeared into the hotel lobby, her high heels clicking, and returned with wax-coated Dixie cups, the kind your grandmother kept by the bathroom sink. For mouthwash, maybe, or a late-night sip of water. The cups made their way around the circle and the man in the blazer poured two fingers of liquor in each. We raised our makeshift glasses in a toast. To good friends, he said. To good friends, we repeated. The cups tilted back in unison. Everyone closed his or her eyes in a collective grimace while I discreetly dumped my cup into the bushes. Down the hatch. Im no teetotaler Ill have a glass of wine with dinner or a beer at the bar. But I try not to drink hard, especially not in mixed company, and especially not on nights where booze and boys can get me Disasters common denominator SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS artisHENDERSON sandydays@floridaweekly.com Alcohol is disasters common denominator.in trouble. My friend Sarah recently told me about an after-hours drinking session with colleagues from work. The night ended calamitously: booze-infused nuzzling, drunken handholding and a new level of intimacy with an office associate. All followed by awkward moments in the company canteen the next morning. I should never have had so much to drink, she said. Alcohol is disasters common denominator. Booze does crazy things to people, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. We tread paths we never intended to walk, and in the dark forest of drinkings influence we discover doorways to recklessness and carelessness, like a secret garden of bad behavior. Sometimes booze provides an excuse to do the things our upstanding, sober selves would never allow. There was a story going around recently about college women at a fraternity event. Instead of filling the kegs with typical frat party fair Natty Ice and the like the young men substituted non-alcoholic beer. The response from the young women? The same as if they were falling-down drunk. I am so drunk, one girl said. I just want to make out with someS arah recentl y told me about s drinking session with col m work.

Alc ohol and its e xcuses the ability to wave a drunken, dismissive hand over our regrettable actions often take us down dangerous roads. We let down our guard, intentional or otherwise, and all our good behavior dissolves in an intoxicated haze. At the end of the recent night out, I made my sober way back to the hotel in time to stumble over one of the women who had joined us for shots, crouched in the hallway outside my room. She looked up over her shoulder at me and smiled weakly as she dabbed at the carpet with a paper towel. The smell of vomit filled the hall. When the evening starts with hard drinking, the night often ends with some form of disaster. Puking on the hotel carpet is only one of many lowbrow offenses.

Expires 9/30/11 20% OFF Deborah Martin, painterWhat is your medium of choice? I paint in oils and I also draw, but my current medium of choice is encaustics. Its an archaic medium that combines melted beeswax with pigment and dammar varnish. Paints are applied onto a stable surface such as wooden panels. Each layer is fused with a heat gun. The result is a durable surface that hardens and becomes translucent By scraping wax away, the process turns into an excavation, discovering colors, textures and images. I try to preserve whats underneath, while creating something new with each layer. What is your workspace like? My studio is set up with all my encaustic equipment plus lots of visual stimulation stuff I find on my daily walks, bird feathers, shells, nests and also stuff from Mexico; I spend February and March in San Miguel de Allende. When did you discover your creative talents? I knew I was an artist in the third grade. What inspires you? Nature. Right now I especially love birds and their nests and use them as themes. How do you feel your art contributes to our community? I hope my work enlightens peoples views about the fragility of our environment. Other than your art, what are you passionate about? Bird watching. And tennis; I play on several 4.0 USTA teams. What are you reading? Eric Larsens In the Garden of Beasts, L ove, Terror. Who have you studied with? I have an MFA from the State University of New York at Albany, where I studied painting and printmaking. I also studied at Haystack and The Womens Studio Workshop. Any guilty pleasures? Chocolate!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2011 great art. On a scale of one to 10 (with 10 being excellent), many of them rate only twos or threes on the online site IMdb (The Internet Movie Data Base.) One even had its notoriety officially confirmed by being featured in the documentary The 50 Worst Films of All Time. Perhaps the most famous Southwest Florida movie is George A. Romeros 1985 Day of the Dead, which was shot in downtown Fort Myers. A cult favorite and the last of Mr. Romeros zombie trilogy, it follows the undead who roam the earth while a group of survivors hunker down in underground bunkers. Scenes shot along Main and Hendry streets and Edwards Drive show the former Fort Myers post office/federal building (now the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center) and the old Edison Theatre (which maintained the marquee but now houses lawyers). The cinematic apocalypse comes to life every October when the city hosts Zombicon (coming up for the fifth year Saturday, Oct. 11). With perhaps unintended humor, www.deadplaces.net compares scenes from Day of the Dead to how the same locations look today. We traveled to this location in the sweltering Summer of 2004, expecting to find many changes since 1985. What we found, however (and we think youll agree) is shockingly unmistakable, write the anonymous posters.A few you probably missedFort Myers downtown can be seen in the background as actor Woody Harrelson crosses a street in the 1998 film Palmetto. Terror Inside, a 2008 film starring Corey Feldman and Tanya Memme, has scenes set in Fort Myers and Cape Coral. According to IMdb, the crew was composed of 37 film students from Valencia Community College in Orlando and 10 professional filmmakers. Coupe de Ville, a 1990 film starring Patrick Dempsey, Daniel Stern and Annabeth Gish, also contains scenes shot in Fort Myers and Cape Coral. Escape from Cuba, a 2003 movie that went directly to video, was shot in Cape Coral. The lone user review on IMdb says, Might appeal to some women, but expect that nearly all male and female audiences will skip this film. Local filmmaker John Biffar wrote and directed Captiva Island, an 85-minute indie film set on Captiva and starring Ernest Borgnine, Arte Johnson (of TVs Laugh-In fame) and Bill Cobbs (who recently starred in Low Down and hosted this years Arts for ACT auction in Fort Myers). Night Moves, a 1975 movie featuring Gene Hackman as a private detective pursuing a missing persons case, has scenes of Sanibel Island in it. The late Arthur Penn, who also made classics such as Bonnie and Clyde, The Miracle Worker, Alices Restaurant and Little Big Man, directed. The 1995 mystery Just Cause, with Sean Connery, Lawrence Fishburne and Kate Capshaw, was shot on location in Fort Myers, Bonita Springs and Collier County. Gone Fishin, a 1997 buddy movie starring Danny Glover and Joe Pesci, was filmed in various places around Southwest Florida, including Fort Myers, Estero, Marco Island and Everglades National Park. And according to the official site of Fort Myers & Sanibel Florida Travel & Vacation Information, Blue Sky, starring Jessica Lange and Tommy Lee Jones, was shot in part in Fort Myers and North Captiva Island. Ms. Lange won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in this movie.So bad, theyrehorribleThe Cotton Pickin Chicken Pluckers is a serious contender for the corniest, most-rednecky movie ever made. Shot in 1967 in Lehigh Acres, the movie features Hee-Haw-esque country songs and lazy hillbillies who drink moonshine out of jugs. It sets back the image of the South at least 50 years, reinforcing almost every stereotype. The movies tagline Its a swamp romp isnt exactly appealing either, unless youre a frog. But the 1966 movie The Fat Spy, filmed in Cape Coral, surely takes the prize as oddest Southwest Florida flick. This is the aforementioned film whose claim to fame is that it was featured in The 50 Worst Films of All Time. Directed by Joseph Cates, The Fat Spy stars Phyllis Diller (who wields a riding crop throughout most of the movie), Jack E. Leonard (playing identical twins) and Jayne Mansfield (who at one point slowly leans over directly in front of the camera lens, her cleavage filling the screen). Its difficult to determine whether the makers of The Fat Spy were attempting to replicate the teen beach movies of the time, or spoof them. Young people in bathing suits sing and dance on the sands of Cape Coral, which is presented as a nearly deserted island that contains the Fountain of Youth. One teen couple is making out on the beach when the boy bursts into song. Then all of a sudden, hes dressed in a dark three-piece suit and tie, and seated on a horse. (And this predates the ingenious Old Spice commercials by more than three decades.) The couple also winds up singing by the Iwo Jima replica monument. Sample dialogue: I dig this barren wastin blazing sun! Theres also this witty repartee with Mr. Leonard and Ms. Diller: Mr. Leonard: Your eyes! Theyre so beautiful! Where did you get these eyes? Ms. Diller: They came with the head. And according to IMdb: Perhaps because the production had run out of money, a final portion of this movie was never actually shot; instead, the camera simply pans over the script pages describing what occurred in the missing scenes. Some might say this is a perfect reflection of the area, but others might argue that the quintessential Southwest Floridian film has yet to be made. In the meantime, we can enjoy our spectacular gulf sunsets in real life, unencumbered by wooden acting, bad dialogue and implausible plots. Ivette Gomez, the shelters art therapy instructor. Over time, our program provides an environment in which the women gain self-respect, dignity, selfesteem, assertiveness, mindfulness, and become acquainted again with their own strong presence, she adds. Inner Worlds of Domestic Violence II will be on display in the Janet and Bill Cuthbert Studio at The von Liebig through Oct. 12. Pieces are shown anonymously.The CollectionThe Collection exhibit is comprised of a small selection of paintings, sculpture, works on paper, photography and mixed media created after 1950 from artists who have had a connection to Florida.

I was born too late for the golden age of newspapers. I was way too young to attend Woodstock. And I inevitably pick the checkout line that takes the longest, even when it looks the shortest. So I guess I shouldnt have been surprised that I picked the wrong week to go on vacation to Maine, Connecticut and New York. Sometimes it seems difficult to wrench myself out of here. Not only do I not want to miss anything important happening in the arts, but there are the typical logistical issues of taking a vacation: choosing the best time, juggling everything, coordinating schedules, making sure the bills are paid and the cat will be taken care of, returning library books, putting the mail and the New York Times on hold, getting to the airport on time I knew a hurricane was brewing when I was leaving, and I was concerned wed be hit with one while I was gone. So imagine my relief when it became clear that Irene wouldnt affect Southwest Florida. Obviously, I was too happy too soon. I was riding on a highway when the 5.9 earthquake hit, so I really didnt feel it. My New England brother told me that for his area, it really wasnt much of anything; he was grocery shopping, and thought he had just lost his balance for a second. It really wasnt a big deal, he said. The ground didnt ripple or tremble or split apart. In New York City I saw groups of people standing outside their apartment houses, but nothing major. (I learned later that thats exactly the wrong thing to do: The windows can shatter and slice and dice you when they fall. Experts say the best thing is to stay inside, in your apartment.) Then I saw movie trailers in side streets and a smashed-up red car in a closed-off street, and realized they were shooting a movie or a TV episode. Perhaps that was why so many more people were outside, looking around, I reasoned. By Lincoln Center and Times Square, life seemed to be going on as usual. I admit, it was strange to find out there had been an earthquake of such magnitude in Virginia, of all places and that it had traveled up the east coast. I was even more surprised to discover, later that week, that although Hurricane Irene had avoided Florida, she was traveling right up the east coast and threatening to wreak havoc on many states. Particularly, she seemed to have her eye on New York City. And so, rather than hitting museums or going to Broadway shows, I found myself seated in front of the TV, once again watching those too-familiar swirling colors superimposed on a map, looking at that horrible Cone of Possibility that widens like an all-consuming mouth. Id been in that place many times before, watching the weather reporters, trying to figure out what was happening and what I should do. But Id always been in Florida doing so, not in the middle of New York City, seated on my nephews couch. It was a very odd experience and it felt surrealistic. I have a love/hate relationship with The Weather Channel and all the other weather reporters. I watch them to try to determine whats happening and what precautions I should take. I want to be informed. But sometimes, they just seem to be fear mongers, painting worst-case scenarios and making it seem as if the end of the world is coming. Sometimes they seemed to be making mountains out of molehills. These guys make Chicken Little look absolutely calm in comparison. Not all, but many of them, seem to be adrenaline junkies, thrilled that Disaster Is Just Around The Corner!!!! I rolled my eyes at one reporter who pointed to a fallen traffic sign and an antenna that was barely moving in the wind as signs of drastic weather. I felt as if I was wasting precious vacation time, inside, seated in front of the TV, trying to determine what was going on. But once they announced the evacuation of Battery Park in lower Manhattan because of potential 11-foot storm surges, and once they announced that theyd be shutting down the entire subway system an unprecedented event I knew things were serious and started making plans to get out. (Mayor Bloombergs attempt at giving instructions in Spanish were hilarious, a welcome bit of levity. Despite his horrible pronunciation, I give him points for trying.) The folks at Delta, the airline that had ripped a handle off of my suitcase on the flight up and refused to do anything about it, were just as unhelpful when I tried to book an earlier flight home to Southwest Florida. The woman I finally spoke with was slow and plodding, and despite announcements that the airlines were rebooking flights at no extra cost, she was insistent Id have to pay $150 to change my ticket, plus any difference in the cost of the tickets. I was flying out of Hartford, Conn., and she didnt seem to think it was directly in the path of Hurricane Irene. Im looking right at a map on The Weather Channel as we speak, I told her, and the center line of the hurricane is going right through the center of Connecticut. Thats Hartford. This was not helping my anxiety any. It wasnt until she actually checked the tickets that she agreed there wouldnt be any extra charges or fees. It was like a revelation to her. Surely I wasnt the only person calling to rebook my flight to try to avoid the hurricane. Flight finally changed, I got out of New York and headed back to Connecticut as quickly as I could. The subway had many more people with suitcases than I can ever recall seeing. I cut my vacation short, flying out a few days earlier than planned. But I made it out, on a flight that probably was one of the last to take off from Hartford before the storm. I had to suffer in a dreaded middle seat, but I made it out. And was glad I did. I dont like hurricanes much. My friends will tell you that thats an understatement. If youd ever told me that Id leave New York City before Id planned, and would return to Florida to escape a hurricane, I wouldve said you were crazy. An earthquake and a hurricane in the same week can make you do crazy things, though. What was next? I wondered. Frogs and locusts? I didnt stick around to find out.

Not because they were all that good certainly not but because as a whole they gave us pleasure and supreme entertainment, even with so much bad mixed in with the good. Heres a lighthearted look back at the last four months. Most Satisfying: Harry Pot ter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Arguably the most important literary saga of this generation went out with a bang, and while the entire package had its ups and downs, this last film was as rewarding as it could be. Kudos to producer Dan Heyman and his team for making it happen. Wha t Happened (Part 1)?: Cowbo ys & Aliens Somewhere along the line director Jon Favreau shouldve told Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford to have a little fun in their silly sci-fi western. Instead they both looked constipated. Best Movie Nobody Saw: T he Guard Brendan Gleesons performance deserves an Oscar nomination. Remember this title when it comes out on video in a few months. Most Thought Provoking: Th e documentaries How To Live Forever and Forks Over Knives Each will prompt you to question your mortality and think about ways to improve your health and lifestyle. Most Disappointing: Gr een Lant ern After a four-minute extended trailer got us all excited, the film arrived limp and remained flaccid. It went in too many directions at once, the 3D looked horrible, and the effects were cheesy. Ryan Reynolds might be a hunk among men, but this movie had issues much bigger than his muscles. What Happened (Part 2)?: Cr azy Stupid, Love The incredible cast included Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Too bad they included a love angle with Mr. Carell and Ms. Moores teenage son and his older pedophile babysitter. Eww to the ending especially. Funniest Film: H orrible B osses Come on, weve all thought about killing our bosses, havent we? OK, weve at least wanted something bad to happen to them, no? If nothing else, maybe weve wished a horrible case of hemorrhoids on him/her (they wont die, but theyll be miserable). Biggest Surprise: T her es no way Thor should have been as good as it was. It even got us super-excited for The Avengers next summer, albeit an enthusiasm that was dimmed by the disappointing Captain America: The First Avenger (speaking of which, for a movie with so much red, white and blue it was remarkably drab). Worst Sequel: P ir ates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Could this franchise end already? Please? They Were Famous Once: Larry Cr owne, starring Tom Hanks and Julie Roberts, opened July 1 and earned a whopping $35.6 million during its run. By comparison, Transformers: Dark of the Moon opened June 29 and earned $37.7 million that day alone. What Happened (Part 3)?: Super 8 This was supposed to be epic. This generations E.T. A movie that would remind us of early s nostalgia that wed never forget. Instead, it registered nothing but a shoulder-shrugging meh and a profound sense of disappointment. Worst Summer Movie: Spy Kids: All The Time In The World Everything Robert Rodriguez has done since Sin City has felt completely half-assed (though admittedly, that was partially the point with Planet Terror and Machete). Still, MR. Rodriguez isnt living up to his abilities as a filmmaker because everything feels cheap. Lets give him a decent budget and really see what he can do as long as he promises to try. Best Summer Movie: X-M en: First Class Great casting, great story, superb production design and masterful direction from Matthew Vaughn (Stardust).

Its supposed to be sexy, actionpacked fun, but its really just average and uninspired. Rated PG-13.Our Idiot Brother (Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Rashida Jones) Mellow and loveable hippie Ned (Mr. Rudd) lives with his three sisters (Ms. Banks, Emily Mortimer and Zooey Deschanel) after getting out of jail for selling marijuana to a uniformed cop. The story is a bit cookie-cutter pr edictable, but its all so sweet and funny that its worth it. Rated R.Dont Be Afraid Of The Dark (Guy Pearce, Katie Holmes, Bailee Madison) Creepy things start happening inside a renovated old mansion when a young girl (Ms. Madison) moves in with her father (Mr. Pearce) and his girlfriend (Ms. Holmes). The dark, eerie tone is appropriately ominous, and theres good suspense throughout. Rated R. CAPSULES REVIEWED BY DAN HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com ............

Crown. $24. 368 pages. Lisa Ungers latest novel takes us back to The Hollows, an ordinary yet somewhat eerie suburb of New York City first probed in Ms. Ungers Fragile (2010, now in paperback). Familiar to readers of Fragile will be Jones Cooper and his psychologist wife, Dr. Maggie Cooper. Jones is a retired police officer who has been staying around the house and doing odd jobs for neighbors. Fragile recorded the unfortunate events that led to his retirement, which left Jones somewhat unsettled. Though he had no plans to become a private detective, people are coming his way with problems that lure him in that direction. The other characters in Darkness, My Old Friend are new. Bethany Graves has only recently moved to The Hollows after a somewhat bitter divorce. She left the city in order to protect her daughter, Willow, from its evils. But teenagers always find trouble, and Willow is a classic example of a young girl filled with resentment and overcompensating for low self-esteem. She is uncooperative at school, skips classes and has one good friend, Jolie, whos even more of a troublemaker. Both girls are drawn to darkness and danger. Together, they witness mysterious and suspicious behavior in the heavily wooded area that borders one of the towns older neighborhoods. Someone seems to be digging something up or trying to. Bethany is near her wits end in dealing with Willow, who has become Maggie Coopers patient. Eloise Montgomery, a psychic (for lack of a better term), has been feeling the presence of danger involving townspeople past and present. There seems to be some connection between the digging, Eloises intuitions and the long-ago disappearance of Marla Holt, a gorgeous young woman who was thought to have simply left The Hollows Returning to The Hollows to dig up some new dark secretsFLORIDA WRITERS h a t t e a w philJASON pkjason@comcast.net Av alon DrLa kewood Blvd 41 Sugde n R egiona l ParkTa mi ami Tr i ELo cat e d ac r o ss from W algree n s in Sugden Par k Plaz a Choose from 7 Entres with a Soft Drink for Just $7 Each, MondayFriday 11ampm4270 Tamiami Trail East Naples (239) 692-9294 WWW.BOSTONS.COM BP International Rights Holdings Inc. 2011 (BPIRH).

Chelle Koster Walton Amazing food and service Sherrill, New York July 11, 2011 e Best Dining Experience in my Lifetime HANDS DOWN. Naples, June 15, 2011 and her family to escape her lifes tedium. Marlas son Michael has recently returned to the familys home after the death of his father, Mack. Michael, who is the person the girls found digging, has unfinished business. He engages Eloise and PI Ray Muldune to find out what happened to his mother. Another failing marriage involves Paula and Kevin Carr. Kevin has been a controlling, abusive husband whom Paula fears. She has agreed to add to their household young Cole, Kevins son by his first wife, Robin. Kevin claims that Robin is unable to raise Cole properly. Paula soon learns that Robin is missing, and she engages Jones Cooper to find him. Meanwhile, Cole attracts both Willow and Jolie, becoming part of a rather unhealthy teen triangle. Before long, Paula is missing as well, and Jones sets out to find her. As the three-headed plot of Darkness, My Old Friend unfolds regarding three missing women (the teenagers are missing for a while as well), readers will find themselves drawn to the authors mastery of characterization and her psychological penetration. As in Fragile, Ms. Unger is especially adept at delineating the emotionally troubled depths of rebellious adolescents. Frustrated, desponded parents are drawn equally well. The recovery from a kind of safe paralysis to dangerous action that brings Jones Cooper back to his essential self is handled with insight and skill. The author makes Eloise Montgomerys uncanny talents vivid and credible, while she handles the control-freak psyche of Kevin Carr with a sure hand. Even relatively minor characters, like Willows teacher and the school principal who was once smitten by Marla Holt, are sharply individualized and convincingly shaded. On top of all this is Ms. Ungers evocation of The Hollows itself, a place at once absolutely ordinary and laced with a magnetic, evocative darkness waiting to lure those who are emotionally fragile or potentially self-destructive into its shadowy, secret places. Darkness, My Old Friend: Its not just a phrase from a Simon & Garfunkel song anymore. Fans who cant wait for this Clearwater, Fla., author to come out with her next titles will be glad to learn that Broadway Books (another part of Random Houses Crown Publishing Group) is re-releasing four early novels first published under Lisa Ungers maiden name, Lisa Miscione.

In 1917, during World War I, the government asked citizens to grow more food because the war was creating extra needs. That was not the only reason for the gardens. They were morale boosters, making gardeners and their helpers feel they were helping in the war effort. Charles Lathrop Pack organized the national War Garden Commission and started the war garden idea. Food production was down because many farmers were in military service. Small gardens planted on unused land increased the food supply in areas near customers, so little transportation was needed. It is said that $1.2 billion in foodstuffs was produced by the end of the war. During World War II, victory gardens were planted by almost 20 million Americans, who grew 9 million to 10 million tons of produce, almost 50 percent of the vegetables eaten in the United States during the war. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt had a victory garden on the White House grounds. It was patriotic to work in a garden. It made the cost of food lower and saved money to be used for the war. Leaflets and posters with slogans and interesting graphics were sent out by the government and private food companies. Collectors today like the posters because of their slogans, like Sow the Seeds of Victory, or their colorful graphics, which often included flags or patriotic figures. An old school garden poster reads Helping Hoover in our U.S. School Garden, reminding everyone that Herbert Hoover was appointed head of the U.S. Food Administration during World War I. His famous slogan was Food Will Win the War. World War I garden posters have been selling well at recent auctions. One picturing a schoolboy and a basket of food had the slogan, I raised em myself in my U.S. School Garden. It sold for $575. Ms. Kovel answers your questions: Q: I have a chair that I am told was made in China in the early-19th century. It has a woven wicker seat, an open back with a rectangular support down the center, thin, curved arms and a wide piece of wood joining the two front legs. It is surprisingly graceful. What worries me is the caned seat. Is it original?

Southern climate and those used in the Northern part of the country. Caned seats, usually woven rattan, were made to let air cool the seating area. This made it less sticky to sit in a hot climate. The idea was so clever that it was adapted by early European explorers for some of their furniture. Lightweight openwork caning instead of solid wood was used in the seat and the back. Antique Chinese furniture is selling for substantial prices today, but the value goes up with age and quality. So you must have someone look at your chair to learn the value. Q: Do you have any information on Sarah Coventry jewelry? I sold it many years ago and still have some of pieces. A: Sarah Coventry was the first company to sell costume jewelry through home parties. The company didnt make jewelry. It bought designs and had the jewelry made by other companies. The founder, Charles H. Stuart, started Emmons Jewelers, Inc., in 1949. In 1950, Stuart started Sarah Coventry, which was named after his granddaughter. The business was so successful that Sarah Coventry became the largest U.S. distributor of costume jewelry in the 1970s. Home parties were discontinued in 1984 and the company went out of business.

Call Me www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 8-14, 2011 When Wine Spectator started its annual ratings of restaurant wine lists three decades ago, wines by the glass werent even considered. If you wanted just a glass, your only choice was house wine, often cheap and nasty, recalls writer Harvey Steiman in the Aug. 31 issue of the august publication. Fortunately for todays wine lovers, by-the-glass programs have come of age, with many restaurateurs recognizing that a good selection both enhances the dining experience and generates business. A great example is the program run by Flemings Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar. The chain, with 64 restaurants including those in Naples and Sarasota, features 100 wines by the glass, changing the lineup annually. In the s, all the wines that you needed to select were white, red and ros, or Chablis and Burgundy as they were called, says Maeve Pesquera, Flemings director of wine. In the early s, wine lists started to change to varietal selections, but were still very limited in by-theglass offerings. Lists have expanded since then, with many restaurants offering as many as 30 diverse by-the-glass offerings. Even relatively small restaurants, such as Table 209 in Punta Gorda and Yanos in Fort Myers, offer close to two dozen wines by the glass. At Naples Tomato, wines by the glass star in the Enomatic wine-serving system. By-the-glass selections are absolutely essential, says Jeff Gately, managing partner of Rumrunners in Cape Coral. Not everyone is going to desire, consume or necessarily want to pay for an entire bottle at every sitting. Also, four guests at a table are very likely to have different preferences in terms of varietal. With wines by the glass, he adds, A pinot noir lover can enjoy his/her glass while the person next to them has a big hearty glass of cabernet. Getting the right wines onto the list doesnt happen by accident. Our by-the-glass program is selected based on the season, availability and items on the menu, says Aleks Stepanovich, manager/sommelier at Sea Salt in Naples. The summer lighter fare calls for fresh wines ross, (white) pinots, Torrontes, Riesling, gruners all of which pair perfectly with the salads and garden-inspired menu selections. The heartier winter menu calls for richer and more expressive varietals cabernet, sangiovese-based super Tuscans, brunello and syrah, just to name a few. Management pays close attention to customer preferences. We receive feedback from our guests, our wine managers and our sales numbers, says Ms. Pesquera. In addition, wineries and trade publications are a wealth of information for new wines. We taste through hundreds of wines to make the final selections. In the end, she explains, the list should be balanced with wines from a variety of places and in a range of taste profiles, varietals and price. Savvy restaurateurs also take trends into consideration. From time to time, something will trigger a spike in desire for a particular grape varietal and you have to go with it, Mr. Gately says. Last season we couldnt offer or stock enough malbec. During the time the movie Sideways was in theaters, pinot noir was all people were drinking. Increased sophistication among wine lovers gives restaurants the ability to offer a wider range of prices and quality. Guests are much more informed than they were 10 or 20 years ago, says Ms. Pesquera. They expect to see wines they recognize and know to be of good quality, in a range of prices, as well as wines they have not heard of before but they know to be tasty because they are on the Flemings list they rely on us picking great wines. By-the-glass selections at Flemings include well-known brands like Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon and Carpe Diem by Dominus, as well as newcomers Craggy Range Cab-Merlot blends from New Zealand and Evening Borealis Northern White blends from Oregon. At Sea Salt, the wine team strives to find distinctive wines that meet discerning customers expectations. Through close partnerships with winery owners and representatives, we are proud to offer our clientele wines by the glass that are rarely, if ever, seen, says Mr. Stepanovich. Glass selections have included Domaine Serene Pinot Noir, Patz and Hall Chardonnay, Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon and Ornellaia and Gaja Tuscan wines, brands generally sold by the bottle. Ms. Pesquera only sees things getting better. The wine lists will keep evolving, she says. People will continue to be more adventurous in their choices (wines from unknown places and/or lesser known varietals), and they will tell each other about them. jimMcCRACKEN vino@florida-weekly.com Wines by the glass improve through the years VINOCOURTESY PHOTOSea Salts Aleks Stepanovich tei n g r al. o nan o ur a ve a l. n ot i le r ty i st c tty k s a t e r t e) C OURTESY PHOTO Naples Best Kept Secret 4221 Tamiami Trail East NaplesLocated on US 41 opposite Sugden Park Open Mon-Sat & Nicks PlaceQuality Food.

Send items to cuisine@floridaweekly. com.CUISINE Years later, Caf Lurcat still charming diners on Fifth n a za R o ad n oon, Club enade When I first visited Caf Lurcat on Fifth Avenue South some years ago, I was struck by the scale of the place. Vaulted ceilings and oversize pendant lampshades give the first-floor lounge and dining area an expansive feel. The second-floor dining room features a 30-foot-high ceiling with a Marc Chagallinspired mural. The restaurant spills out onto the street with ample terrace seating as well as a balcony overlooking the tony avenue. Despite its grand size, Lurcat exudes warmth in many ways. The color palate is simple and earthy, with white and honey Venetian plaster, light woods and leather, white tablecloths and white slipcovers on chairs. Silk pillows and leather banquettes add coziness. Its the kind of place where you want to slow down and savor several courses of food and wine while enjoying the posh parade of Neapolitans. The parade was fairly sparse on the night we revisited which, frankly, was rather a relief. When its going full tilt during season, Lurcat can be intimidatingly crowded and loud. Arriving early on an offseason weeknight, we were able to enjoy a more peaceful atmosphere and our choice of table. Piano jazz and chill-out beats alternated on the sound system, providing a relaxed rhythm for dinner service. Soon after we were seated and served water, a basket of bread and butter arrived. The butter was covered with wax paper bearing the Lurcat logo a charming little touch. We quickly settled on wines to sip while considering the menu. By the glass, there are some interesting selections, including my Mohua Sauvignon Blanc, a mildly tart white from the Marlborough region of New Zealand. My companion allowed me a sip of his plummy Achaval Ferrer Malbec, which was very good (but overpriced at $17 for a 6-ounce pour; an Internet search proved that bottles of the Argentine wine sell for about $20-$25). Starters here range from raw to cold to hot. These last seemed the most interesting to us, so we ordered the crab cake and a plate of ravioli that sounded intriguing. Again, there was some perplexing pricing at play here: $14.50 for a single crab cake? Granted, this cake was practically all crabmeat and it was perfectly grilled, but still. Not only was it overpriced, but there was so little holding the meat together that the cake crumbled apart on the plate as soon as the fork cut into it. Hard to say if this was just an aberration rather than the rule, but the kitchen needs to spend some time perfecting this item. We fared better with the ravioli. Four tender pillows of pasta were stuffed with ricotta and napped in a lush green sauce crafted from roasted corn and poblano chilies. The sauce struck a balance between sweet and spicy and did not drown the ravioli. Dishes were cleared away quickly and water glasses refilled silently and frequently throughout the meal. The matre d checked on us and other nearby tables to make sure things were running smoothly. Overall, the service was unobtrusive and efficient on this quiet evening. When it comes to the main course at Lurcat, options are fairly evenly split between meat and seafood. There are a pair of sub 500 dishes, which refers to their calorie counts, and a pair of pasta specialties. Vegetables are served ala carte, which again adds up when the bill comes. We ordered a side that sounded delightful and was. A mlange of English peas, sugarsnap peas and fresh fava beans lightly sauted in butter was like a bowl of verdant nourishment wholesome, simple, pure. The seafood pasta was equally delicious. The wide, short noodles tasted freshly made and were cooked just right. They were laced with a rich, buttery sauce that also complemented the copious amounts of shrimp and lobster meat they were tossed with. Fresh tarragon such a perfect partner for seafood added a lovely note of anise to the dish. Our other entre of choice was pork tenderloin a very reasonable $24, I should mention out of fairness. It was a little more complex than the seafood pasta and equally well executed. The meat was grilled just enough to create a crust without overcooking the interior, which had a slight blush in the middle and was perfectly moist. I couldnt quite distinguish the spices it was rubbed with, but there was no mistaking the smokiness of chipotle chilies in the cherry relish that accompanied it an inspired pairing of flavors. The couscous it was served with also had a creative touch, with toasted pumpkin seeds adding a contrasting crunch to the tender pasta. No dinner at Caf Lurcat would be complete without dessert, so save room. The freshly made cinnamon-sugar donuts are a popular signature offering, and Ive enjoyed them in the past. This time, we opted for the fried huckleberry pie and a creamy panna cotta, both of which were delicious. The former was the hand-held sort of rectangular pie, stuffed with sweet berries, crisply fried and dusted with sugar. In a clever twist on tradition, the panna cotta was infused with coconut and served with a scoop of tart passion fruit sorbet and a colorful garnish of diced strawberries and other fruit. Despite some issues we have with pricing, years later its nice to know that Caf Lurcats charms are still intact.

I dont know who rst said that, but he or she spoke the truth. Which brings me to the point of this column: Ill be on hiatus much of the next few months to attend to an unscheduled medical condition. Ill be contributing as I can, but the restaurant reviewing will be done by my good friend and talented colleague Drew Sterwald. Hes too modest to tell you this, but I can say it: Hes an excellent writer and accomplished cook with many years of food reporting and restaurant reviewing under his belt.
