Now hes 97. He still drives and he has three years to go before his license expires. It wouldnt surprise me, the way Florida does things, that at 100 years old, they would renew my drivers license, says the man who has not taken a driving test since he moved to the state in 1978. In Florida, Ive never had to go in for a new license. They mail it to me automatically They could be mailing me a drivers license, renewing my drivers license at 100 years old. Mr. DiMeglio does not believe in this process. He believes in driving tests.

I consider this my annual pro bono effort to grow the national economy, to create individual happiness aka financial independence and to boost the tax base considerably in communities where Florida Weeklys astute readers still live by the Roman imperative, Carpe Diem, rather than by the wage-slave imperative, Per Diem. Oh, and this could cure several forms of cancer, heart disease, addiction and obesity, too, all of them stress related (a euphemism for springing from poverty) at least for those who seize upon this idea. First things first. Its important now that you quit making excuses and become rich. Youre an American, arent you? Rich is your birthright. Religious people have God. Poets have language. Foodies have fine cuisine. Alchies have alcohol. But Americans, per se, have money. Get it, and youll be happy. I became inspired to offer you this advice after reading news reports of a fellow creative thinker in Madeira Beach. This guy is pure Florida. He has a good idea; he just doesnt know what to do with it. He now charges $175 a pop to throw alligators at least the size of the children in with them at their pool parties. That way, apparently, both they and their parents can claim theyve swum (not with the fishes) with the gators. Oh sure, he tapes their mouths shut, he claims. But the beauty of this scheme is that not only could he get rich especially if he thought on a slightly grander scale but he could help solve the ageold and now particularly acute problem of spoiled children, a service for which many people would pay a great deal. In one snap of the jaws applied decisively and unhesitatingly his business could reduce the population of spoiled children in Florida and cut parent poverty, simultaneously. Pool parties are expensive, after all, and so are college educations. So anytime the little rascals got to be too much, a parent could just order up a pool party and slip the reptile entrepreneur a few extra grand to forget the duct tape. Years of financial independence i.e., happiness could ensue. If you want to debate the difference between wealth and happiness, by the way, dont do it here. We have money sorry, happiness to make. Do it instead with a teenager or a college student. When a local paper ran this heartwarming, pool-party wire story last week, complete with photo of a man grinning insanely and stroking a 4-foot, lap-top alligator as if it were Shirley Temple (remember her?), its editors decided to flank it with another wire story. This one was topped by the following warm-hearted headline, no doubt written by a snarling, tooth-chomping, bloodthirsty copy editor closely related to alligators and crocodiles. Gator rips off womans arm in Leesburg canal, it announced in bold black ink. I guess somebody forgot to tape that gators mouth shut, or to suggest that the copy editor go run five miles each day before coming to work. More to the point, if this can be done with alligators, why not with other creatures? Lets not think small here. Many of us who already horde vast wealth have long considered hosting a fashionable and elaborate get together like the ones, say, that Sheldon Adelson, rated No. 12 on the Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest Americans, hosts for conservative Republican presidential candidates when he gives them millions of dollars. He did it for Newt and now hes doing it for Mitt. Apparently, the Las Vegas big-shot and casino magnate is either deaf or actually inured to the political patter the ceaseless and tormenting talk-talk-talk that his honored political guests discharge at cyclic rates of about 1,000 words per minute to puncture human equilibrium like machine gun rounds. Nevertheless, many other wealthy people, none of whom are immune to the viral malady known as Keeping Up With The Joneses, would love to host the politicians, too. But without the palaver. This is where you, the alligator middleman/woman, come in. First, you develop business cards and a business entity. If I were you Id call it Alligator Arrangements Inc. Then you begin writing and calling politicians, especially politicians slightly down on their luck, like Newt, and just aching for a chance to appear at some fundraiser as an important big shot. There are many in this boat, and they range from local to state to national figures. This year, most of them are Republicans. You simply tell them that for a small fee say, 50 percent of what theyll make in an appearance you will arrange that appearance. Next, you look up the Forbes 400 wealthiest Americans, and you contact each. Or if youre so inclined, just drive around the fanciest neighborhoods you can find and leave business notices. If things are really tough, drive around middle-class neighborhoods and solicit business there. A lot of those folks would like to host big-shot politicians, including the ones that got them into this in the first place, and if the big-shot pols never returned from those parties, well that wouldnt be your problem. Let your future clients know that they can soon be hosting the biggies, just like Mr. Adelson (No. 12 on the Forbes list). Or just like the Koch brothers. David, of Palm Beach, and his brother Charles, of Wichita, Kan., are tied at No. 4 on the Forbes list, and have given many millions to Republican candidates and conservative causes. Then you go down to the hardware store and get the tape. You arrange your fee for bringing fame together with money, you meet the politician before the party, and you wait for the right moment. When hes not looking (Im using the male pronoun for a reason), you slap the duct tape across his mouth as you promised the guests you would, restricting him to dead silence. And you toss him into the pool or the party, either one. See? Happiness all around. And that means youll be rich.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONThe 47 percent blunder amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The best defense of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romneys instantly notorious 7 percent remarks at a May fundraiser is that he made a bad point badly. Romney mixed up three separate groups: the roughly half the country that will inevitably support President Barack Obama, the half that doesnt pay federal income taxes and the half that receives government benefits. Then he declared them all a collective lost cause. He will never win them over, or convince them to take responsibility for their lives. Next question. In reality, these are distinct categories. Many Obama supporters are rich. We can be certain the attendees at the presidents recent fundraiser with Beyonce and Jay-Z in New York City have hefty tax bills. Meanwhile, many of Romneys supporters especially the elderly dont pay federal income taxes and receive government benefits. The contention is that if people arent paying federal income taxes, they are essentially freeloaders who will vote themselves more government benefits knowing that they dont have to pay for them. As conservative writer Ramesh Ponnuru has pointed out, theres no evidence for this dynamic. It is true that the number of people without a federalincome-tax liability is up; it was just 28 percent in 1950. It is mainly the poor, seniors and lower-income families with children who dont owe income taxes. The poor lean heavily Democratic, but thats always been so. Seniors, on the other hand, have been swinging Republican, and theres no indication that families with children are becoming more liberal. Many workers who dont pay federal income tax pay other taxes, including the payroll tax. Just 18 percent of tax filers escape both the income and payroll taxes. People who arent paying income tax dont think of themselves as freeloading takers. An April Gallup poll found more discontent with taxes among people making less than $30,000 than any other income group. The deeper problem with the 7 percent argument is that it is right-wing Elizabeth Warrenism. Warren wants to tax rich people as a statement of our patriotic commitment to one another; some conservatives evidently want to tax the poor and seniors for the same reason. If you arent paying taxes or arent paying enough you are a subcitizen. How does this look in the real world? If a couple earning $35,000 with two kids has no income-tax liability thanks to various exemptions, deductions and credits (the child tax credit has been especially important in removing families from the rolls), how much should we tax them to get them to shape up and fly right? How much do they have to pay the Internal Revenue Service to learn a lesson in basic civics? This tendency represents a backdoor return to Country Club Republicanism, with the approval of part of the Republican base. Fear of the creation of a class of takers can slide into disdain for people who are too poor or have too many kids or are too old to pay their damn taxes. For a whiff of how politically unattractive this point of view can be, just look at the Romney fundraising video. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Romney has a jobs plan for ChinaFreeport, Ill., is the site of one of the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates. On Aug. 27, 1858, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas debated there in their race for Illinois U.S. Senate seat. Lincoln lost that race, but the Freeport debate set the stage for his eventual defeat of Douglas in the presidential election of 1860, and thus the Civil War. Today, as the African-American president of the United States prepares to debate the candidate from the party of Lincoln, workers in Freeport are staging a protest, hoping to put their plight into the center of the national debate this election season. Bainport is the name the workers have given their protest encampment. A group of workers from Sensata Technologies have set up their tents across the road from the plant where many of them have spent their adult lives working. Sensata makes high-tech sensors for automobiles, including the sensors that help automatic transmissions run safely. Sensata Technologies recently bought the plant from Honeywell, and promptly told the more than 170 workers there that their jobs and all the plants equipment would be shipped to China. You may never have heard of Sensata Technologies, but in this election season, youve probably heard the name of its owner, Bain Capital, the company cofounded and formerly run by Mitt Romney. When they learned this, close to a dozen Sensata employees decided to put up a fight, to challenge Romney to put into practice his very campaign slogans to save American jobs. They traveled to Tampa, Fla., joining in a poor peoples campaign at a temporary camp called Romneyville (after the Hoovervilles of the Great Depression). They organized a petition drive, getting 35,000 people to join their demand to Romney to call on his former colleagues, to save their jobs. Since Freeport is close to two swing states, Iowa and Wisconsin, they traveled to a Romney rally and appealed directly to him there (ironically, for appealing to Romney to save their jobs from being sent to China, the Sensata workers were jeered as communists at the rally, and removed by U.S. Secret Service). Then the workers established Bainport. Set up at the Stephenson County Fairgrounds, with the full support of the community, the workers have spent more than two weeks camped out, with a dozen tents, a large circus-style tent serving as a covered gathering space and command center, and an outdoor kitchen. They built a stage with a banner reading, Mitt Romney: Come to Freeport and signs like Romney does have a jobs plan ... too bad its for China. Behind the stage they have built a small bridge that carries the workers across a gully to and from their remaining shifts at the plant. One night last week, we arrived at Bainport at 10:30. A group of workers and their supporters were sitting around the campfire. I talked to them, one by one, before they made their way to their tents. Dot Turner had to be at work at 5 a.m. I asked her how long shed been at the plant. For 43 years. I started in 1969. I was 18 at the time, she told me. Her message to Romney was clear: If he was really concerned about the American people and if he was concerned about creating jobs, the 12 million jobs that he always uses as his stump speech, he could create this job by leaving it here. While Romney has yet to visit Freeport, a campaign spokesman addressed the issue of Sensata, turning the issue around, onto President Barack Obama: Despite the president being invested in Sensata through his personal pension fund, and the government owning a major Sensata customer in GM, President Obama has not used his powers to help this situation in any way. Obama didnt respond to the specific charge, but on the campaign trail, he hits Romney hard on Bain outsourcing jobs to China: When you see these ads hes running, promising to get tough on China, it feels a lot like that fox saying, You know, we need more secure chicken coops. Freeport Mayor George Gaulrapp visited Bainport on the morning that we broadcast our Democracy Now! news hour from the camp. He told me about his hopes for the workers, reflecting on his hometowns long history: Freeport is the home of the Lincoln-Douglas debate site. Weve invited both campaigns, President Obama and Governor Romney, to come to Freeport and debate in an oldstyle campaign. It would be a perfect opportunity for him, the architect who mastered how to send jobs over offshore, to come back here and reverse the trend. Were 65 miles from Paul Ryans hometown of Janesville. Its a perfect location to come, have your feet on the ground and meet a cross-section of America. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Byron really impressed me, and although he didnt win the Republican primary, he did win Collier County after a grassroots campaign of the people. He continues to be an informative and entertaining guest on my show, and I believe hell one day have a major role on the national stage.Byron grew up in a rough part of Brooklyn, raised with his two sisters by their single mom. He recalls her constant admonition, ... to look at a situation and think logically, a message that stays with him today. She also believed that a good education was the way out of Brooklyn for her children. She worked hard, and sometimes had help from their grandmother, to put them through private school. Her goal was to get us out of Brooklyn through education, so I guess you can say she is a complete success, Byron said. About his Dad, Byron says, I know who he is, but he hasnt been present in my life. I really missed that guidance as a teenager it has motivated me to develop that bond with my sons. Aside from his Mom, Byrons coaches were the important adults in his life. They taught him how to compete and importance of minding the details to achieve success in sports and life.He attended an all-black elementary school, a private Quaker middle school, Brooklyn Friends, and Nazareth High School, a predominately black Catholic school. Because his mother was so strict, he didnt have much of a social life. I basically played sports and went to class, he recalls. I didnt even go to the prom. I had a small circle of friends, but I was really searching for my identity as a person. When you dont have your father to help you through that time in life, it is hard for a young man to understand who he is. Byron enrolled in a five-year MBA program at Florida A&M University in 1996 and transferred to Florida State University in his third year. He graduated in 2002 with dual bachelors degrees in finance and marketing. He now manages volatility and risk in a multi-billion dollar portfolio.He met his wife, Erika, at FSU, where they both belonged to the Delta Sigma Pi business fraternity. Erika works as a CPA in the Naples office of a national investment firm. My family is the center of my life, Byron says. My parents never married, so I had no idea what a marriage was supposed to look like. My church community has helped to show me how a married man and a father take full responsibility for their home. I want to be the husband that my wife deserves, w T i a s bobHARDEN e-mail: email@example.com PROFILES IN PARADISEFinding himself and becoming a role model Talking points with Byron DonaldsSomething your mother was always right about: Emotion can get you into trouble. You have to strip the emotion out of decision in order to make the right ones. Something thats been on your mind: The direction of our country. That, and how the Lakers are going to look since they acquired Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. Mentor(s): Politically, Milton Friedman. He had an ability to explain complex economic theory. As a man, Paul Foslien and David Jacinto. The pastor and youth pastor in my church, respectively, theyve been my role models for being a husband and father. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A basketball player. I love the game.

First job: I was a janitor for a summer camp. It was hard work, but wasnt too bad. What the Paradise Coast really needs: A metropolitan-style downtown by the Southwest Florida International Airport. I think it would transform the area economically. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: I like that I dont need a winter coat. What I miss about the Paradise Coast when Im away: The peace and quiet. The weather, beaches and lifestyle.

Though you cannot see his hearing aids in his license photo, Mr. DiMeglio says they were there; he lost his hearing in the military, exposed to too many firing zones in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Though he wears glasses, he says his visions perfect, just had it examined. Though he looks as if he may have lost weight since his license photo and may have punched holes in his belt to fasten it tighter, Mr. DiMeglio maintains he has weighed 135 pounds since he was on active duty. Now on the cusp of becoming a centenarian, the methodical man wakes up every morning and does a half hour of sit-ups and push-ups. If perchance his renewed license arrives in the mail as he turns 100 and he still feels sharp and wiry, he will drive. But he undertones this admission, saying, If I got in that car today and I went down the street and I started getting a little woozy and I didnt know where I was at and I couldnt read the signs, I would know it was time to call my son and say, Mike, theres the car and here are my car keys. As of January, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports there are 631,109 drivers driving over the age of 80. These drivers account for about 4 percent of all licensed drivers in the state. These drivers are not required to take a driving test to renew their license. In 2004, Florida began requiring drivers over 80 to pass a vision test upon renewal of their license. Despite this legislation, their presence on the road seems persistent, as five years ago drivers over 80 made up 3.7 percent of the total driving population; 10 years ago, 3.8 percent. Children of these aging drivers, directors of assisted living facilities and geriatricians alike question: Has this rudimentary vision test been a moot measure? Should there be more? Looking at the calendar year for 2011, the state reports 17,657 mature drivers (drivers 80 and over) were screened for vision. Of these, 3,416 drivers were determined to have conditions requiring an earlier follow-up exam than the standard renewal period of six years. Only 155 drivers had their license renewal revoked. Such numbers perpetuate the general perception that once you have your license in Florida, you have it forever. We do what the legislature has asked us to do, says Jean Sholl, branch manager for the Palm Beach County Tax Collector. Ms. Sholl oversees clerks who conduct vision tests and issue license renewals. Motorists step up to open counters and press their foreheads against an eye machine, that black-box kaleidoscope of letters, to have their vision checked. If someone is having difficulty or a problem with one eye, say they start with a 20/70 reading, we let them work their way down, especially if theyre just missing two letters, Ms. Sholl says. By the time they reach the bottom line, theyll pass. Its not that they cant see, theyre just nervous. In Florida, if you are blind in one eye, you can drive. As long as your other eye has an acuity reading of 20/40 and your combined vision reads 20/40, you will be eligible to receive a drivers license. Applicants who have 20/50 vision or worse in either eye are referred to an eye specialist. But at the counter of a Florida driver license office, visual acuity tests are no more than a step-right-up, lookstraight-ahead, tunnel-vision analysis. To some, the loss of peripheral vision associated with aging may warrant more tests. Ms. Sholl maintains, as state policy instructs her, If they can see 20/40 they dont need more tests and their vision is OK to drive. If clerks question the ability of someone standing at their counters, they consult Ms. Sholl. Recently, a woman in her 90s came in to renew her drivers license. The woman was accompanied by her daughter. When the clerk asked her questions, the woman would turn to her daughter before answering the clerk. The clerk turned to Ms. Sholl. Can she answer your questions? Ms. Sholl asked the clerk. Well, yes, said the clerk. But she talks to her daughter first. Does she have any physical disabilities? Ms. Sholl further asked. Well, no, said the clerk. The state renewed her license. She seemed to get around OK. She had all her faculties about her, Ms. Sholl says. She was just old. We dont make someone take a driving test just because theyre old. The state reserves the right to issue a driving test if there are concerns regarding an individuals ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Its not about age, stresses Ms. Sholl. Its about physical ability at any age. Living at South Port Square, a continuing care retirement community, Mr. DiMeglio does not have to drive. Chauffeured town cars are available. On Sunday morning, he and his wife take the bus to church. But when it comes to grocery shopping or doctors appointments, Mr. DiMeglio sits behind the wheel. Anything necessary for me and my wife and for our health, I drive, he says in an almost antiquated tone of chivalry and conviction. His driving means the world to him, or rather, more than the world, as his driving allows him to keep up his ministry. Once a month, Mr. DiMeglio drives to lead a religious service for the Knights of Columbus. Once a week, he drives to the homebound, a 97-yearold bringing communion to those who are no longer able to go to Mass. Its important to me, he says. Mr. DiMeglio admits there are residents in his community who should not be driving, but when he expresses his concern, You know, Ive been watching you drive. You may want to give it up, he hears resentment, Dont you tell me, or Its none of your business. So Mr. DiMeglio does what deacons do: he prays. When family members start to question the driving abilities of their aging loved ones, they tend to go running to the state. Ive had families come in here and say, I cant do it. Can you take their license away? They wont give it up. They shouldnt be driving, says Ms. Sholl, throwing her hands up in the air as she speaks. I tell them to fill out one of these, she says, handing over a medical reporting form. This form allows any person to report another persons disability to drive, confidentially. To children of aging drivers who may be wondering when to take the keys away or how to take the keys away, Dr. Michael F. Raab, geriatrician, suggests transitioning them into a new routine rather than taking any abrupt action. Youre not going to be able to take the keys away without a big fight, Dr. Raab says. A better way would be to get a sense of their schedule. Be with them when they need to be taken places, Oh, you go shopping on Tuesdays? Im here. Lets go together. Then reinforce their willingness to let you drive with your gratitude, Im so glad we had this time together. I love when you tell me stories about the past. Thank you. Dr. Raab also suggests appealing to their sense of family and generosity, I need you to help me. Your grandson needs your car. Youre not using it that often. Try to keep your appeals in a help me context, because as Dr. Raab says, Theyre going to want to help their children. Or you can show them the money. Break down how much money they would be saving car payments, car insurance, gas by not driving. For the number of places mature drivers drive to, taxis typically cost less. But when senior drivers think of losing their license, Dr. Raab says their immediate response is fear: We wont have any food to eat. We wont be able to see our doctors. We wont be able to socialize at the yacht club. We wont be able to exercise at the wellness center. Considering how these drivers may only drive two miles twice a week to go to the grocery store or the pharmacy, Dr. Raab says it can be hard to justify taking their license away. So he shares an analogy he often hears in the medical field to help visualize the issue. The rate of accidents from people driving with dementia equals the rate of accidents of people driving drunk, he says. A lot of people drive home safely when theyre drunk. Thats certainly not something we want people doing or want to advocate in any way. But just as many people are driving home demented. We certainly dont want that either. Practicing through Lee Memory Care in Fort Myers, Dr. Raab administers cognitive tests to evaluate an individuals memory, motor skills and field of view. When patients perform poorly on these tests, such results translate to unsafe driving. People feel if they havent driven into a wall, theyre competent to drive, says Dr. Raab, who sees the issue of aging and driving as a societal problem, but one thats preventable. Should there be required driving tests? he asks of the state system. There probably should be. But you could get around it a lot easier if you were to expand the vision tests. By expanding the current vision exams to test peripheral vision, Dr. Raab believes the state would catch many unsafe drivers who are slipping through the cracks. He feels this notion would be better than the current predicament and quicker and cheaper than physical driving tests or computer simulated alternatives. Computers scare Jacqueline Hadley. She did not grow up with computers. If she had to take a driving test on a computer, she would find it upsetting. Truth be told, she finds mandatory, age-based driving tests discriminating. But she does fancy Dr. Raabs proposition to expand the vision test. Its a great idea, really, says Mrs. Hadley, who feels driving should be determined by doctors more than by the state. They know whether you should be driving or not. The state should not say you cant drive anymore because of your age. Thats horrible. But if a doctor says it, thats good enough for me. Mrs. Hadleys doctor says her visions still good enough to drive. Nonetheless, the 81-year-old has decided to sell her car and give up her drivers license. In my own mind, I know its time to quit. Its not comfortable for me to drive, she says. I can see very well, but it just bothers me. Distance is getting foggy Its time for me to give up driving and go to a place where I dont have to drive. Thats what I feel. Mrs. Hadley and her husband Lawrence are moving from Lantana to Fountainview, a resort-style senior living community in West Palm Beach. Mr. Hadley was diagnosed with dementia in 2004. His license was taken away this past spring. Thats when Mrs. Hadley took over driving. The two have been married 61 years. After their retirement, they spent seven years driving around in an RV and loved it. I was pleased to sit beside him, Mrs. Hadley says of her husband. Thats the way our life has always been. He was the driver. Mrs. Hadley sees many drivers her age on the road who are conscientious DRIVERSFrom page 1CATHY GRAY / FLORIDA WEEKLY Jacqueline Hadley, 81, has decided to give up her drivers license.

I think its wonderful theyre still able to drive and Im happy for them, that they still can, because I know all of us want to, we all need to, just as much as young people do. But she also sees many drivers her age who she considers dangerous. If youre unsure about (driving), I would say thats a sign, Mrs. Hadley says. If youre thinking about quitting, you should. As a volunteer AARP safe driving instructor in Naples, Greg Johnson teaches drivers signs to look for as their aging bodies and minds near the time for them to give up driving. One exercise involving reaction time goes like this: Hold your pencil up over your table. Im going to give you a signal. When I clap my hands, I want you to drop your pencil. Mr. Johnson continues talking, then claps his hands. Theyre all over the place, he says of the falling pencils. They never all go at the same time. He hopes this exercise makes his students question, Should I really be driving? To be frank, he says most drivers take his class to get a discount on their insurance. Many of his students are from out of state, looking for any differences in Florida laws. When I tell people, in Florida, they dont need to have a driving test ever after they get their license, everybodys shocked, he says. But soon as he starts talking about choosing to retire from driving, no more eyes are on him. Everybodys looking for contacts on their table, Mr. Johnson says. Nobodys head is up. A different feeling overtakes the room. Mr. Johnson says he can understand this. He thinks back to his first taste of freedom. I remember when I got my bicycle. I thought, Oh, man. I can go anywhere. Not really, but I thought I could, he says. Then I got my car. Oh, man. I am really unencumbered now. I can go anywhere I want. Sixty years later to give it up, its not easy. Teaching this safe driving class has made 64-year-old Mr. Johnson start thinking about when the time will come for him to retire from driving. He recalls one gentleman who spoke up and shared his decision with the class. He must have been in his 70s, Mr. Johnson says. He said he made an agreement with his children. He said, Its up to them. If they look at me and they evaluate that Im a danger, theyre to take my keys away from me. He signed a contract. It was a done deal. Thats a pretty gutsy deal, to do something like that. Mr. Johnson wishes more people would do the same, he hopes he does, make a deal for safety, rather than bargain for freedom. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYMichael DiMeglio hasnt gone in for a driving test since 1978. He wheels around Florida legally at the age of 97 with thousands of other aged drivers. Prevent. Protect. Prevail.Shelter has programs for Domestic Violence Awareness Month BY CINDY PIERCEcpierce@ oridaweekly.comDomestic Violence Awareness Month was first observed in October 1987. Two years later, Congress passed a law designating October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In Naples and Collier County, The Shelter for Abused Women & Children takes the lead yearround in helping bring to light the facts on a social epidemic that affects one in four women and one in seven men in their lifetimes. This month, other local agencies that are all too familiar with incidents of domestic abuse join the effort to raise awareness. The Shelter has distributed more than 1,000 magnetic purple End Domestic Violence ribbons to the Collier County Sheriffs Office, the Naples and Marco Island police departments and Collier County Emergency Medical Services for display on their vehicles. The ribbon magnets are more than a show of solidarity in our collaborative efforts to end the violence, Lisa Fasanella, director of programs for The Shelter, says. They raise awareness about this social epidemic and provide our web address and hotline number for those in need. That 24-hour hotline number is 775-1101 (TTY 775-4265) and the website is www.naplesshelter. org.October eventsHere are some things taking place locally as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Educating with Emery Boards, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6: Shelter volunteers will distribute free emery boards bearing the hotline number and website at the following locations: For Footed Friends in Marquesa Plaza at the corner of Livingston and Pine Ridge roads Starbucks locations at Central Avenue and U.S. 41, at Waterside Shops and at Marquesa Plaza, corner of Livingston and Pine Ridge roads Publix stores at Berkshire Commons on Radio Road, at Riverchase at the corner of U.S. 41 and Immokalee Road, and at Pine Ridge Crossing at the corner of Pine Ridge and Airport Pulling roads Reza in Rep preview performance, 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, at The Norris Center: Pay what you can to see Gulfshore Playhouses preview of its season-opener, and proceeds will benefit The Shelter.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 Periodontal FACTPeriodontal Disease may be a contributing factor to: gum periodontal disease periodontal diseaseDr. Bradley Piotrowski, D.D.S., M.S.D. Hurry offer expires 10/12/12 Tiny post office hopes to make a big difference by going pinkThe Ochopee Post Office has gone pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Postmaster Nanette Watson wants to sell more Breast Cancer Research stamps than any other U.S Post Office during the month of October. The pink transformation took place on Oct. 1, when students from Everglades High School covered the tiny clapboard structure on U.S. 41 in a coat of pink paint. The 55-cent breast cancer semipostal stamp is sold in sheets of 20 for $11. The price of a semipostal pays for the FirstClass single-piece postage rate in effect at the time of purchase. By law, 70 percent of the net amount raised through the sale of the Breast Cancer Research stamp is given to the National Institutes of Health, and 30 percent is given to the Medical Research Program at the U.S. Department of Defense. Since 1998, the stamp has raised more than $75 million for breast cancer research. The Ochopee Post Office may be small, but I am hopeful that customers will purchase enough Breast Cancer Research stamps from this Post Office to make a big difference, Ms. Watson says. Customers around the globe can purchase stamps from the Ochopee branch without actually going there. To buy the Breast Cancer Research stamp by mail, send a check payable to Postmaster to: Ochopee Postmaster, 38000 Tamiami Trail E., Ochopee, FL 34141-9998. Include a return address; the purchase will be mailed in an envelope bearing the collectible Nations Smallest Post Office postmark. Nestled in the Big Cypress National Preserve, the Ochopee P.O., which measures 7 feet by 8 feet on the interior, offers all Postal Service products and services. Mail for more than 900 residents is sorted by the postmaster and delivered by Ochopees one mail carrier to customers on a route that stretches 132 miles long and reaches into three counties, including deliveries on the Miccosukee Indian Reservation.

Edison State, Champions For Learning join forces to get local kids to college SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Two local organizations with a passion for learning have teamed together to help 12 Golden Gate High School juniors go to college. What makes this different? The Edison State College Foundation and Champions For Learning (formerly the Education Foundation of Collier County) are combining local funds that will be matched dollar for dollar by the state through the Stanley Tate Project STARS Scholarship Program of the Florida Prepaid College Foundation. This collaborative pilot to leverage local resources will provide scholarships for 12 students to pursue a two-year degree at Edison State College. Part of our new mission involves investing in and leveraging resources to support innovation around student learning, Susan McManus, president of Champions For Learning, explains. Having the opportunity to work with the Florida College Access Network to identify opportunities for Collier students has been tremendous, and has helped us to focus this pilot effort on students at Golden Gate High. Champions For Learning will work with Collier County Public Schools and Golden Gate High School to select juniors and provide these students with a mentor and college preparation support. This will be an adaptation of the Take Stock in Children model that the foundation currently manages. After the students graduate from high school, they will attend ESC. Part of our mission as a foundation is to support students and their higher education goals. This is a new way to help more students who want a promising career that doesnt necessarily require a four-year degree, says Kevin Miller, executive director of the ESC Foundation. By putting our resources all together, we can make an even bigger impact on the lives of these students. For more information, visit www. ChampionsForLearning.org or www. edison.edu.

Websters defines entrepreneur as one who organizes, manages and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise. That describes Doris Reynolds, the official historian for the city of Naples, to a T. After leaving school at 15 and moving from Pennsylv ania to South Carolina, she enrolled in the National Youth Administration program, where she learned to type and soon began working in the typist pool at the Charleston Navy Yard. At the urging of her boss, she took the civil service exam and upon receiving the highest possible score, went from earning $10 a week to $100 a week. Upon her bosss return to the war effort, Reynolds found herself appointed director of public relations for the Navy yard. She was not quite 17 years old. She married and became a mother when she was 17. After her son was born, she stayed at home and wrote romance novels in her spare time. Her husbands transfer to St. Petersburg, Fla., in 1945 enabled her to establish her own public relations firm that she operated for the next seven years (with Florida Power & Light as one of her biggest clients). She always felt St. Petersburg was too big, however, and when a colleague mentioned a position was open in nearby Naples that of manager of the chamber of commerce she drove down to check out the quiet town. She felt so welcomed by those she spoke with that she knew she would soon put down roots here. It was 60 years ago this week, on Oct. 1, 1952, that Ms. Reynolds, now divorced and a single parent, started her new job running the chamber. Her salary, she recalls, was $65 a week. The citys yearround population was about 1,200. The chamber office consisted of a 16-by-22-foot building off Fifth Avenue South facing the Tamiami Trail. It came equipped with an ancient mimeograph and a worn-out typewriter. There was no air conditioning and no toilet. When asked where she went, she laughs and replies, at the Shell Station on the corner After a while they just gave me my own key. 1.800.227.2345 | putonyourpinkbra.com PROUD 2012 PINK PREMIER SPONSOR Please join the American Cancer Society in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

In 1956, she created the monthly promotional magazine, The Naples Guide, which is still in publication today. The success of the magazine allowed her to leave her chamber post, and for the next 30 years she continued to publish the magazine and do public relations while also owning the Gazebo Art Gallery and the Gazebo Restaurant in Old Naples. At the end of every winter season, when it was too early to sell advertising for the next issue of the magazine, she would take off for a summer of travels around the world. Doris Reynolds is a Naples icon. She started it all. From an extremely modest beginning, the chamber today is the largest in five counties. Doris lit the candle that continues to glow.Mike Reagen, president The Greater Naples Chamber of CommerceIn 1987, she began writing Lets Talk Food, a column that appeared every Wednesday in the Naples Daily News. Even as a child, she loved being in the kitchen. (Although her mother tried to keep her out, she says, because of her incessant questions. It was a neighbor who took the young girl under her wing and taught her how to cook.) She has carried a deep love and respect for local history throughout her life in Naples, researching, writing and lecturing about those who came before her to our seaside town. In 2006, the Naples City Council named Doris Reynolds the citys official historian. The following year, a friend suggested she create a DVD about her experiences here. Those who view A Walk Down Memory Lane with Doris Reynolds learn about the enterprising people with vision who saw the potential of this small town and built on it and made it what it is today. The DVD and Ms. Reynolds two books, Lets Talk Food and When Peacocks Were Roasted and Mullet Were Fried, are available at Collier County libraries or can be purchased by sending a query to D. Reynolds Enterprises, Inc., P.O. Box 875, Naples, FL 34106. It is vitally important that we honor and pay homage to those courageous pioneers who saw beyond the hardscrabble land and visualized a great city, she says. Although those hearty pioneers are long gone from our midst, they have each left behind a legacy that we must cherish and protect. We all bear the responsibility of preserving the past. Mike Reagen, president of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, perhaps best sums up Ms. Reynolds contribution to our seaside city: Doris Reynolds is a Naples icon. She started it all. From an extremely modest beginning, the chamber today is the largest in five counties. Doris lit the candle that continues to glow. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981. Following a years stint as a reporter for the former weekly Everglades Echo newspaper, she began freelancing. Her first book,Hidden History of Everglades City & Points Nearby, was published in 2010 by The History Press in South Carolina.

GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASEHARD TO SAY, HARDER TO LIVE WITH. If youre having chronic acid re ux it could lead to more. Get back to living your life without pain. Florida Incisionless Surgeons Stand Up to Cancer. Peter Denk, MD Martin Barrios, MD 4857 Palm Beach Blvd., #3 Fort Myers, FL 33905 8340 Collier Blvd., #205 Naples, FL 34114 Treatment of Heartburn and Acid Re ux GERD. Many patients suffer from acid re ux and its complications such as dif culty swallowing, strictures, Barretts esophagus and aspiration. Acid re ux is usually the result of a hiatal hernia or a defective lower esophageal sphincter or re ux valve. Medical treatments may initially control the symptoms but often fail long term because they only mask the symptoms of the defective re ux valve. Also, Proton Pump Inhibitors (the strongest of the acid suppression medications) have been shown to cause osteoporosis. Acid re ux and hiatal hernias can be repaired with several minimally invasive surgical options. Patients undergoing these procedures are freed from their pills and no longer have to avoid re ux producing foods. Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication: This minimally invasive procedure uses the stomach to construct a robust one-way valve which prevents stomach acid from re uxing into the esophagus. It has been thoroughly studied, is extremely durable, and effectively cures 95% of typical re ux symptoms. Laparoscopic Hiatal Hernia repair with Fundoplication: A hiatal hernia occurs when a portion of the stomach moves into the chest. This can create serious discomfort that can present as chest pain, re ux, or swallowing problems. Large hiatal hernias can be life threatening, causing anemia, vomiting, and perforation. This operation restores the stomach to its normal position in the abdomen, closes the hiatal hernia defect, and then reshapes the stomach to create a one way valve to prevent acid re ux.

Despite what people might think about the older population, falls are not inevitable. In fact, theyre largely preventable, says Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. Here are the companys general recommendations for fall-proofing, followed by additional tips specific to dementia and Alzheimers patients. Install handrails on BOTH sides of stairs and grab bars in bathrooms. Provide plenty of light at the top and bottom of stairs and throughout hallways. Paint the bottom basement step white to make it more visible. Secure rugs to the floor to prevent tripping. Attach non-slip strips to the bottom of slippers and shoes. In outside areas, check steps and walkways for loose bricks, cement or stone. Measure foot size every time your senior buys shoes. Foot size changes with age, and a shoe that is too big increases the risk of a fall. Make sure senior loved ones have their eyes checked by a doctor at least once a year and have their eyeglasses updated as needed. Consider getting a pair with single-vision distance lenses for activities such as walking outside. Have a doctor or pharmacist review medications and prescription and alert you to ones that could cause side effects such as dizziness or drowsiness.For dementia/Alzheimers patients Encourage seniors to wear hip protectors (90 percent of hip fractures are due to falls). Make sure they have a walking aid within reach. Use an emergency sensor overnight to help detect wandering. Do not use bed rails overnight. Instead, lower the bed to the ground. Encourage seniors to rest with the head of the bed slightly raised. Use a seatbelt on a shower chair. Never leave them in the shower or bathroom unattended. When you care for a senior with dementia, you have an added responsibility because dementia puts seniors at the highest risk for wandering, which increases chances for falling, says Mr. Ross.Facts about falls According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2008, 82 percent of fall deaths were among people 65 and older. Fall-related fractures occur more than twice the rate for older women than for older men. More than 90 percent of hip fractures are caused by falls. And white women have significantly higher hip fracture rates than black women. Direct medical costs of falls equaled $28.2 billion in 2010. Senior Helpers has offices in Collier and Lee counties.

A plan for improving health and health care in AmericaThe American Hospital Association, where I have served as a member of the regional policy board for the past two years, is one health organization that is results oriented. The AHA knows that the current growth rate for health-care spending is unsustainable. That has been the driver behind Creating a Healthier Tomorrow, the associations plan and priority checklist to which my southeastern colleagues and I contributed.Here is the essence of the suggestions AHA makes to improve U.S. health and control health-care costs: Accelerated payment and delivery system reforms that align incentives among physicians, nurses and other caregivers with those of the government, insurers, employers and most importantly patients. Providers will coordinate care, add value (quality divided by cost) and partner with payers. Government and other insurers will be innovative, fair and cooperative in exploring new methods of care, without adding unnecessary regulations. Removing barriers to cooperation, while encouraging preventive measures and engaging populations in healthy behavior, helps everyone. Eliminating complications and infections has been a longstanding goal of AHA and the Institute of Medicine. Providers, the government, insurers, employers and the public would all benefit from a well-defined set of standards that would encourage metric performance measures. There are too many confusing measures of quality today. What is needed, by contrast, is clarity. Requiring the use of electronic medical records has recently been boosted by governmental rewards. NCH is proud to rank among the top 215 hospitals in the nation for successful implementation and use of information technology. Soon we will introduce a community health information exchange. Transparency for quality and price information is another challenge that must be addressed in this digital age. Whats needed is an agency along the lines of a Securities and Exchange Commission to standardize quality reporting. Sharing understandable cost information with insurers and patients is needed. Engaging patients and families in prevention and care is also obligatory. An estimated 70 percent of illnesses could be avoided if we were to better care for ourselves. Eliminating inefficient care could save 30 percent of health-care costs. Overuse, underuse and misuse are equally costly and harmful. The antidote: collaboration, sharing electronic medical records, and evidence-based medicine. Modernizing Medicare and Medicaid so that these 50-year-old systems become responsive to todays needs and resources. Involving patients and simplifying process are keys to the solution. Reforming the medical liability system would decrease defensive medicine and could save more than $60 billion over the next decade. Real improvements in health and health care are possible. Organizations like AHA and systems like NCH are leading the way to a better, more competitive domestic health system. Dr. Allen Weiss is the president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 NEWS A25 Physician Directory2012-2013 Southwest Florida Look for our Physician Directory covering Lee, Collier and Charlotte county physcians inside our November 8, 2012 edition of Florida Weekly.www.FloridaWeekly.com Physician Directory 2012-2013 Southwest Florida Physician Directory 2012-2013 Southwest Florida TOWN HALL TALKMia Farrow continues to crusade against human sufferingIn the 30 years since the inception of the Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speaker Series, our presenters have become like members of an elite family. While some have returned to speak with us again, weve kept up with others who continue to shape the world around them. In 2009, Mia Farrow spoke to our audience about the outcry of human suffering around the world and also about her life as an actress and star of more than 40 films (The Great Gatsby, Rosemarys Baby and Hannah and Her Sisters among them) and the television classic, Peyton Place. The actress and humanitarian has seen the worst the world has to offer and has witnessed what human beings can do to one another, something that could break a lesser person. Ms. Farrow has had her share of peaks and valleys along the way. But shell be the first to tell you she feels like the luckiest person on earth. Much has changed since she came from Western Ireland to the Hollywood Hills, married Frank Sinatra and eventually become a voice for the less fortunate. Today shes at home in her New England farmhouse, surrounded by loved ones, and yet she yearns for peace and an end to distress in places like Darfur. I caught up with Ms. Farrow last week and asked her about her ongoing work on behalf of Africas forsaken citizens, the possibility of a new book and life on the farm. Heres what she had to say. Q: As a result of your good work, a light has been focused on the children and villages in Africa who desperately seek life, liberty and freedom from oppression. What other nations and areas of the globe still go unnoticed as they struggle for these basic human rights? A: The ongoing atrocities in Syria are well documented and an outrage. But across the globe, we are seeing people struggle for basic human rights. However appalling the circumstances, wherever I go, I am struck by the children and how each childs face is full of hope. In the face of their courage, resilience and hope, we can all find our own ways to reach out to those who are suffering and in need. Q: How has the situation in Darfur improved or worsened since you last visited us in Naples in early 2009? A: Darfur is a word that became synonymous with human suffering and, in time, with its millions of tormented people, has been largely forgotten. Thank you for remembering them. Tragically, the situation there remains deplorable, still convulsed by violence. Q: With all the abject suffering and poverty that you witness in the world, what advice can you give each of us on how to become part of the solution? A: We dont have to look far to find people in need within our communities or for community services we can support with our time. Beyond our own communities, there is a world of suffering. Even a dollar can save a life in Africa. I love UNICEF, and there are many wonderful humanitarian organizations including Save the Children, The World Food Programme and the UN Refugee Agency. Check out my website, www.miafarrow.org, for photos and information on my latest project, archiving the cultural traditions of the Darfur tribes targeted for extermination, documenting what is lost as a result of genocide. To watch a little eight-minute film I made about the project on YouTube, just look up Darfur Archives, Mia Farrow. And in a very recent example of citizen power, Sudans President Al-Bashir was actually bidding for a seat on the UN Human Rights Council. I helped to launch a legal, diplomatic and online campaign to stop them. Thousands signed our petition on www.change.org (thank you, Twitter) and just a few weeks ago, Al-Bashir withdrew his bid. Q: When you are not traveling to the ends of the earth, you live a relatively sedate, family-centered life in a storybook New England town. What simple joys do you find in your life outside the limelight? A: I live in a very rural part of New England, in a rambling old farmhouse with chickens and a vegetable garden. The children have grown up and moved on with their lives. My two youngest are in college, and one of my sons and his family live next door. His wife has become one of my closest friends, and their children are a huge joy for me. In short, I love my chores, my life and the people in it. I am the luckiest person on earth.

A survey of 1,500 people by the Purina company both those who own dogs and those who dont revealed that children raised in families with dogs are 20 percent more likely to spend time in active, outside play than those in families without canine companionship. The recent recall of peanut butter due to salmonella contamination is significant to pet owners because it is often used to hide pills, making it easier to get pets to take their medications. More than 30 people in 19 states have been sickened by contaminated products, which all use nuts from New Mexico-based Sunland farms. Updates on the recall and a complete list of affected products are on the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations website, FDA.gov. Both dogs and cats can become ill by eating salmonellacontaminated products, and the illness can be transmitted to people from pets. While most pet lovers are aware of the challenges of rehoming cats and dogs, relatively few give much thought to parrots in need of new homes. The challenge of caring for these pets is made more difficult because of medical and behavioral issues and the fact that many parrot species kept as pets have potential life spans as long as human ones. The nonprofit Gabriel Foundation in Colorado (thegabrielfoundation.org) has for years maintained a model shelter and sanctuary for these pets, with a variety of services including lifetime care for parrots who cannot be successfully transitioned to new homes. The lasting effects of pet loss may be underestimated, with a fifth of respondents in a recent poll saying they didnt currently have a pet because the loss of their last one was too painful. The strong response came as a surprise to the American Humane Association, which polled 1,500 non-pet owners and past pet owners last February, asking why they did not currently own a dog or cat. Other respondents gave answers that were more anticipated, citing the time and expense of keeping a pet. Complaints to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that the number of pets sickened or killed by chicken jerky treats have topped 1,300, and the agency recently expanded its investigation after receiving additional reports of illness caused by Chinese treats made of yams or sweet potatoes. To date, there have been no recalls, and no indication of what the problem could be. Families with a dog are more likely to have children who engage in physical activity.

Adoption fees $60 for cats and $85 for dogs and include sterilization surgery, vaccinations, pet license, ID microchip and a bag of food.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! MONEY & INVESTING Does the Federal Reserve print money?There are plenty of economic issues about which people can agree to disagree taxation, the accuracy of the CPI as a measure of inflation, stock market valuation, the true level of employment, etc. A dizzying array of factoids could support various positions on these topics. There is one economic understanding that should be clear, yet it is anything but clear, even to members of the financial community. The question is: Does the Federal Reserve Bank print money to buy trillions in financial assets? This leads to other questions: Is the Fed monetizing U.S. debt? And should you care? The short form answers are yes, yes and yes. The Fed is printing big and it is woefully important to U.S. citizens and foreigners holding dollars. The Chinese have already figured it out. What is the Fed buying with all that currency? After 2008s financial crisis, the Fed, through its various quantitative easing programs of QE1, QE2 and QE3, has been buying all sorts of financial assets. After three years of what the Fed calls easings, these assets that have been purchased now total $2.82 trillion, include mortgages and U.S. Treasury debt of $940 billion and $1.6 trillion, respectively, according to The Federal Reserve Statistical Release of Sept. 20. When the U.S. deficit run int o the trillions annually, the Fed became a very meaningful buyer at Treasury auctions to get the U.S. deficit financed and drive down U.S. Treasury rates, thereby bringing all interest rates lower. The Fed became a big buyer of mortgages in order to lower mortgage rates, thereby helping the real estate recovery. So how was the Fed able to pay several trillion dollars for these new assets? The answer is the Fed incurred trillions in debt about $2.76 trillion, according to a Fed report. The Fed didnt have its own cash so it borrowed but from whom?Electronic printingThe Fed buys U.S. debt through the government dealer banks that handle U.S. debt auctions and buys mortgages though the member commercial banks. But it does not pay these banks with a check or with greenbacks. It pays the banks by crediting their reserve accounts held at the Federal Reserve. So, for instance, if ABC Bank sells $500 million of mortgages to the Fed, then the Fed credits ABC Banks reserve account held at the Fed an electronic printing of money. Some major newspapers have suggested that the commercial banks have excess reserves, which are just left at the Fed for investing. The truth is the Fed is initiating the process. It is massively buying but has no means to pay and, by default, is creating huge reserve accounts for the commercial banks. Crediting reserves requires no paper bills to be printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Nevertheless, it is virtual printing of money. The Feds $2.76 trillion liability has two major components: one is the reserves of the banks at $1.6 trillion. The other big liability is Federal Reserve Notes at $1.1 trillion. Those two total $2.7 trillion of its $2.8 trillion liabilities. So, what is the liability called Federal Reserve Notes? They are U.S. dollars that have been issued by the Fed to the commercial banks that have requested currency or actual U.S. dollars in lieu of reserves held at the Fed. The new currency is paid to the bank, the Fed debits the banks reserve amounts and then creates a liability for the dollars issued called Federal Reserve Notes. It sounds different than dollars but it isnt. Its balance sheet term means that it is now a joint obligation of the U.S. government and the Fed. In simple terms, the U.S. government borrows from the Fed. The Fed has no money to buy the debt through the bank intermediaries so it credits banks reserves. The banks can request currency as payment; the Fed issues the currency and then it owes the U.S. government for this currency. The Fed assumed/created this moneyprinting role in order to combat post-2008s massive destruction of credit within the worldwide lending system the shadowbanking sector was collapsing along with traditional bank lending. Long after the crisis passed, the Fed stayed as a non-normal market buyer in an attempt, however worthy or worthless, to stimulate growth or spur mild inflation in the face of strongly deflationary forces. You, as citizen or investor, should be concerned as it is debasing / lowering the value of the U.S. dollar. What was meant as an interim solution in a crisis has now become the lifeline to keep us alive it allows the budget crisis to continue and unemployment to remain high. China, however, gets the picture. Holdings of treasuries by many foreign countries has grown in the past year: Japan up 13 percent; Caribbean Banking Centers up 38 percent; Switzerland up 61 percent; Belgium up 67 percent. Yes, Germany is unchanged but China actually decreased its holdings over the 12 months by 13 percent or down $165 billion. (Major Foreign Holders of Treasury Securities, July 2011 to July 2012) The words quantitative easing sound helpful and harmless. The reality is that the Fed is accommodating a runaway U.S. deficit while you toil to earn the dollars the Fed and Treasury have agreed to depreciate. Portfolios need to consider holding alternatives to the U.S. dollar until the Fed stops printing and the deficit is under control.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Know Your CompanyIts important to have a handle on the different kinds of companies out there, lest you end up filling your portfolio with too many of one type. Here are some common types: Cyclical companies are very tied to the economic climate. During downturns, people spend money more conservatively, putting off major purchases such as cars, washing machines and big trips. Thus, makers of large appliances are cyclical. Companies selling items such as drugs, soap or energy are defensive. If youre taking heart medications, youre not going to stop because of a recession. Seasonal companies experience significantly different sales at various times of the year. Many retailers, for example, see sales surge during the holiday season. Taxpreparation and lawn-servicing companies are also seasonal. Blue chip companies have been around a long time and are known for being solid, relatively safe investments. Theyre steady growers, usually paying dividends. Examples: General Electric, Walmart, Caterpillar and Colgate-Palmolive. At the other end of the spectrum are speculative stocks, typically tied to young, relatively unknown and risky companies. Many promise great things, but have yet to prove themselves. Examples include gold miners or firms trying to develop cures for cancer. Growth stocks, favored by aggressive investors, tend to grow faster than the market average. They often dont pay any dividends, using profits to fuel their growth. Their stock prices can go up and down quickly. (Telegraph and fax-machine businesses were growers once. Fortunes change over time.) Value stocks are favored by investors looking to buy the proverbial dollar for 50 cents. They seek promising companies that are temporarily out of favor. Income stocks may not grow too quickly, but they pay significant dividends, ideally hiking them regularly. These include utility companies, real-estate companies, preferred stocks and many blue chips. Income stocks are often favored by those in or near retirement, who seek income to supplement pensions or savings. Many companies fit into several categories, such as those that are both growing briskly and valued attractively. Give It TimeDecades ago, when I began following stocks, I wanted to invest in a name I recognized. Berkshire Hathaway stock cost a few dollars per share, and all I knew about it was that it made shirts. To my everlasting regret, I didnt buy any but at 12 years old I didnt have much money of my own and only watched stocks and dreamed about owning them. Just proves that the best time to start investing is as early as possible. M.S., Danville, Calif.The Fool Responds: You may be surprised to learn that Hathaway shirts were not made by Berkshire Hathaway, which began as a textile company. Youre right, though, that starting early is a great way to build wealth. You neednt get in on a great company at the beginning, though. With Berkshires Class A shares recently trading near $130,000 per share (you read that right), youd have done well to have bought at $100 or $1,000 or even $100,000. (Class B shares are far more accessible, though, near $87.) Even a slow grower can serve you well, if you give it decades. In 1971, I was spun off from the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS). Today Im a top Video and Audio Communications company, offering entertainment around the globe. I oversee brands such as BET, MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, Comedy Central, Centric, CMT, Spike, TV Land, Logo, Tr3s, VIVA and Paramount Pictures. Paramount is 100 years old this year and remains a major producer and distributor of filmed entertainment. My media networks reach about 700 million people in more than 160 countries and territories. My parent company is (privately owned) National Amusements, which also owns CBS. Who am I? Know the answer? Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! Shopping for ShopsInvestors seeking income should consider REITs (real-estate investment trusts), and among REITs, Retail Opportunity Investments Corp. (Nasdaq: ROIC) deserves consideration. A REIT is a public company that invests in real estate. Many REITs have particular focuses, such as health-care properties, apartments or office buildings. REITs aim to buy properties that are underpriced and wont have problem finding tenants. They also get to be tax-exempt if they pay out at least 90 percent of their earnings in the form of dividends. Retail Opportunity raises money by selling shares to the public, and it uses that money to buy shopping centers, improve their performance and collect rent. Ideally, it will also sell the land for significant gains. Our analysts like the companys CEO, Stuart Tanz, who has been buying up shopping center properties in the depressed markets of the American West. Revenue has increased from around $46,000 in 2009 to $51.7 million in 2011. Over the last four quarters alone, that number has jumped to almost $65 million. Just as important, the company is now turning a solid profit, most of which will be delivered to shareholders. Retail Opportunity recently offered investors a respectable 4.5 percent dividend yield. An improving commercial real estate market would boost this already-solid business even more. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Retail Opportunity and our newsletters have recommended it.) Founded in 1972 and based in California, Im a small company, but a major player in the telescope industry. I began as a one-man mail-order vendor of small telescopes, and now offer a range of telescopes, binoculars and other optical products. I serve everyone from beginning bird-watchers to serious amateur astronomers to celestial photographers. My innovations over the years have made skywatching more accessible for amateurs. My LightSwitch telescopes, for example, introduced in 2009, automatically align themselves with the flip of a switch, making it easy for viewers to zero in on objects of interest. Who am I? (Answer: Meade Instruments) Historical PricesQWhere can I look up how much a stock traded for on a particular day some years ago? S.S., Spokane, Wash.ATry calling the companys investor relations department and asking. Another good resource is your public library, where librarians can help you look up the price in newspaper archives or elsewhere. If youre online, its much easier. Click over to finance.yahoo.com, type in the companys ticker symbol, and once you get its quote page, click on the Historical Prices link in the blue box on the left side of the page. ***QWhats a pure play company? R.C., Springfield, Mo.AIts a company that focuses on one single business. When investors are drawn to a particular industry, they may look for a company thats a pure play, so that their invested dollars wont be spread out over other, less desirable businesses. Massive conglomerate General Electric, for example, is about as far as you can get from a pure play, making everything from security systems to power-plant equipment to aircraft engines, and with each operation having varying profitability characteristics. If your research suggests that cosmetics retailing should grow briskly and you want to invest in it, you might invest in drugstores or department stores that sell makeup. They sell a lot of other items, too, though, many of which might grow less briskly and might thus bring down the companys overall growth rate. So instead, you can look at Sally Beauty Holdings and Ulta Salon, which are pure plays in the business. Coca-Cola is a beverage pure play, unlike PepsiCo, which has a giant snack operation in Frito-Lay. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and/or has recommended CocaCola, PepsiCo and Ulta Salon.)Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us

A partnership between the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art and the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York, the festival showcases experimental theater, avant-garde dance and international musicians. This year, its fourth, RIAF takes place Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 10-13, on theSEE RINGLING, C4 Downtown, where all the lights are bright, Downtown, waiting for you tonightDawn Lebrecht Fornara knows the lyrics and the energy of Downtown, the 1964 No. 1 hit by Petula Clark, as well perhaps as Ms. Clark did nearly a half century ago. Ms. Fornara rattles off a bit more from the song during a recent telephone conversation. When youre alone and life is making you lonely, you can always go DOWNtown, she says. Downtown is one of many vibrant and timeless hits of that era that make up Shout! The Mod Musical, onstage at Sugden Community Theatre through Oct. 27. The opening act of the new season for The Naples Players, its a time-traveling show, so to speak, going back to the days when songs had harmony, melody and an infectious spunk, and mini-skirts were daring fashion developments. The show, directed by Ms. Fornara, reprises an era and features other titles anybody old enough to remember the 1960s will likely recall. Theres To Sir With Love, These Boots Are Made for Walkin, Georgie Girl and more.A colorful castThe action in Shout! unfolds in London and centers on five women in their 20s to 40s, all of whom go by colors. Theres Orange, Yellow, Blue, Red and Green. No names. Just colors. Its much more than a revue, Ms. Fornara says. Its a journey.

IC0712-A www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSHope for love when you least expect itIn this age of celebrity sex scandals and glitterati faux-weddings when married politicians text pictures of their genitalia and even our religious leaders have trouble keeping it in their pants, many people say romance is dead. But there is hope for love and it turns up in the most unexpected places. Like my e-mail inbox. Readers sometimes write to question my judgment or taste or worst of all my grammatical skills, but recently I had the good fortune to receive a touching message from a man named Adam. He has generously allowed me to reprint his letter here. I hope it will restore your faith in love. It has mine. Dear Ms. Henderson, I dont often read articles on love, mostly because I am so completely satisfied in that arena that I feel no need to research further. However, your article caught my eye. I think you are correct that many people over-complicate such things. Marriage is the warm comfort of always knowing that your best friend with benefits will always be there for you. My father once expressed a concern that although I had many friends, he could not discern any one that would be my best friend other than my wonderful wife of 23 years, Terry. I gave him the charade game sign for on the nose, smiled and walked away. The more I watch other married couples, the happier I am in the choice I made to spend my life with this glowing, intelligent woman who is so deluded as to think I am someone extraordinary. Romeo and Juliet make a heartwrenching drama, but not a happy way to live. The romance and drama glorified in the media and sought by millions is probably the single biggest reason for the high level of divorce found in our society today. Home is a place of sanctuary and peace where people who love one another treat each other with love and kindness. The mechanics of how to find it are not so complex. Look for that special person with whom there is not only sexual chemistry, but is the friend who it is inconceivable that they would ever let you down. Take your time. This is the most important decision you will ever make. Get it right the first time. Sex is simple. Make it naked and fun. Old-fashioned politeness matters. Open the door for her so she knows she is still more important to you than the strangers for whom too many of us reserve our courtesy. Give her a kiss of gratitude for that dinner she was so old-fashionably willing to make for you. Thinking and speaking with her perspective always in the forefront of your mind rather than a competition to score ego points will pay incredible dividends over time. Save your dissension for times when it really matters, and she will give it more weight when you do. I will never forget the day just before we married when Terry looked up at me with a bright cheery smile on her face, batted her big brown eyes and said, I hope you understand this marriage is until death do you part! I think I got the better end of the deal. artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

Honor Flight documentary opens Naples International Film Festival SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The fourth annual Naples International Film Festival will host the east coast premiere of Honor Flight as part of the opening-night red carpet gala on Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. Naples is the first film festival in the world to showcase this extraordinary film, and to have it for opening night is truly a gift, says Shannon Franklin, NIFF executive and artistic director. A featurelength documentary, Honor Flight chronicles a community coming together to honor living World War II veterans, one last time. The film follows a team of Midwest volunteers as they race against the clock to send every local WWII veteran to the Washington, D.C., memorials built in their honor. Throughout the film, veterans share their war stories sometimes for the first time ever. For many, Honor Flight was their first visit to the nations capital and the last trip theyll ever take. The trip itself is a profound event, filled with surprises and acts of appreciation from a grateful nation. The all-but-forgotten veterans are heroes once again. At its core, Honor Flight is a unifying story about gratitude and freedom that prompts viewers to recognize the Greatest Generation by striving to lead lives worthy of their legacy. Red carpet arrivals for the NIFF opening night festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. The film screening at 7 p.m. will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers. The VIP afterparty beginning at 9:30 p.m. will include dancing on stage at the Phil. The gala is sponsored by Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. VIP admission walk the red carpet, attend an welcome reception with VIPs and visiting filmmakers, enjoy premium seating for the film presentation and Q&A, and attend the after party is $159 per person. General admission walk the red carpet, mix and mingle before the film, general seating for the screening and Q&Q is $29 per person. For tickets to opening night events, call the Phil at 597-1900 or visit www. thephil.org. From Nov. 2-4, NIFF will celebrate the art of independent filmmaking with screenings of more than three dozen movies at Silverspot Cinema in Mercato.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 campus of the Ringling museum. The lineup includes: The Mark Morris Dance Group; Shantala Shivalingappa dancing classical Southern Indian dances of third century BC Kuchipudi; Ensemble Basiani of Georgia, Russia; the experimental theater troupe Pig Iron Theatre Company; the Dirty Dozen Brass Band; and pianists Adam Tendler and Phyllis Chen (Mr. Tendler will perform John Cages Sonatas and Interludes, and Ms. Chen will perform various compositions on a toy piano.) The festival also has four films: Carmen and Geoffrey, Joseph Brodsky: In the Prison of Latitudes, Park Avenue Armory Event (by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company) and Labyrinth Within. RINGLINGFrom page 1 1. If you live long enough, youre going to experience a lot of things, says Roger Lewis, a founding member of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. The group is 35 years old, and Mr. Lewis is twice that. His experience and that of his band mates is reflected in their music. These guys have definitely honed their musicianship over the years. Its amazing, Mr. Lewis says of their longevity. Usually bands are together for a couple years, and with this, its over 35 years. My first marriage didnt last that long. 2. Theyve performed all over the world in more than 30 countries on five continents and just returned from Japan. We used to go to Japan once a year, Mr. Lewis says. 3. The Dirty Dozen Brass Band is so cool that back in the s it was picked to perform on a riverboat for a Rolling Stones party. 4. The band performs 200 to 300 gigs a year. 5. Theyre like a family. A lot of people grew up in this band; our trumpet player joined when he was 15, Mr. Lewis says. Some of the guys, this is the second band they ever played in. Some of the guys, this is the first band theyve ever played in. 6. Each member has equal influence. Thats the magic, Mr. Lewis says. Whatever you want to play, you can play. You want to do a cover tune, you can play it. Come and bring an original tune, it gets played. In most bands, you dont have that kind of freedom. In the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, every musician has an equal vote. Whatever you want to play, I dont care. Lets do it. Mr. Lewis says. That democratic approach to music means this New Orleans-based band plays a gumbo of music that has some R&B in it along with a measure of jazz, funk, Afro-Latino grooves and some Caribbean sounds mixed in. 7. When it comes to collaboration, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has played with a wide variety of musicians, including Elvis Costello, The Black Crowes, Buckwheat Zydeco, David Byrne, Dizzy Gillespie, Branford Marsalis, Bettye LaVette, Guru, G. Love, Robert Randolph and Modest Mouse. We had Norah Jones play Ruler of My Heart with us before she got famous, Mr. Lewis says. We recorded with Dave Matthews and his violinst, Boyd Tinsley Weve opened for Miles Davis. 8. The bands latest album and its first studio release in six years, Twenty Dozen, includes their own spin on the New Orleans staple When the Saints Go Marching In and covers of Rihannas Dont Stop the Music and the Stoness Paint it Black. The CDs title has puzzled some, because its not the bands 20th release and doesnt include 20 cuts; its wordplay about the year: 2012, twenty twelve. 9. The band has appeared on the HBO series Treme, performing with Galactic and rapper Juvenile. 10. A much-requested song, Dirty Old Man, which appears on the bands recent album, came about accidentally. As Mr. Lewis tells it, he was selling CDs from the bandstand while the rest of the band was in the dressing room. People started yelling, Play another number, he recalls. I said, The band is in the dressing room, and they said, Well, you play something. I started playing a bass line on my baritone sax, and people started moving and grooving to the music of the baritone. Then I started singing, Im a dirty old man, I feel like spanking somebody. Fans started requesting the number at concerts, and then the band started joining in. 11. The Dirty Dozen Brass Band played at the Ringling 28 years ago as part of the museums Concerts in the Courtyard series. When they perform at RIAF on Sunday, Oct. 13, it will be 28 years to the day. 12. Were the greatest party band, Mr. Lewis proclaims. We got music for your mind, body and soul. We got it all. Its always a joyous occasion. We put a smile on your face and love in your heart. 12 facts about the Dirty Dozen Brass BandPig Iron looks at ThoreauBY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com The fourth annual Ringling International Arts Festival>> When: Oct. 10-13 >> Where: Campus of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, including the Mertz Theatre, in Sarasota >> Tickets: $10-$85 per show >> Info: (941) 360-7399 or www.ringlingartsfestival.org Festival schedule>> Wednesday, Oct. 10 5:30 p.m. Opening night fundraiser with the Mark Morris Dance Company >> Thursday, Oct. 11 2 p.m. Carmen and Geoffrey lm 5 p.m. Ensemble Basiani >> Mark Morris Dance Group 8 p.m. Shantala Shivalingappa Pig Iron Theatre Company Adam Tendler >> Friday, Oct. 12 2 p.m. Pig Iron Theatre Company Joseph Brodsky lm 5 p.m. Shantala Shivalingappa 8 p.m. Ensemble Basiani Mark Morris Dance Group Pig Iron Theatre Company Phyllis Chen >> Saturday, Oct. 13 2 p.m. Ensemble Basiani Mark Morris Dance Group 5 p.m. Shantala Shivalingappa Pig Iron Theatre Company Park Avenue Amory Event and Labyrinth Within lms 6:30 p.m. Grand nale with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band COURTESY PHOTOThe Dirty Dozen Brass Band will deliver the festival grand finale with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances in the courtyard at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota.COURTESY PHOTOThe Pig Iron Theatre Company will perform its new production, Zero Cost House.Pig Iron Theatre productions are like snowflakes: No two are ever alike. In fact, its difficult to explain exactly what the company does, because each play radically differs from those that have preceded them. Critics have called Pig Iron Theatre experimental, unpredictable and cosmopolitan. Their own website calls them an interdisciplinary ensemble, explaining that theyre dedicated to the creation of new and exuberant performance works that defy easy categorization. We call ourselves a dance-clowntheater company, says Dito van Reigersberg, one of the troupes artistic directors and performers. Were interested in the physical movements in a dancer sort of way, and clown is really more in the European tradition... The most extreme version of breaking the fourth wall is the clown. That three-part stylistic palette, incorporating clown, dance and theater, leads to results that look very different from one another. Zero Cost House, the two-hour work the troupe will perform at RIAF, is based on a script by Toshiki Okada that deals with rereading Henry David Thoreaus Walden, moving out of Tokyo and zero yen houses. Those are the structures of people in Japan who opted out of the system and created tent-like or camp-like structures for themselves to live in. The ways in which they live are off the grid officially, Mr. van Reigersberg explains. These people are living in a more independent way. (The playwright) connects that back to the ideas Thoreau put forth about self-reliance and independence and freedom, and the ways in which being part of civilized society is a way of trapping yourself. The plays structure is unusual, he says, adding that he performs the role of the playwright, who winds up meeting his 15-year-ago self. There are conversations between the present playwright and past playwright. There are the characters in the play that hes writing. And then the character of Thoreau appears. The actor explains that he starts talking to someone about Thoreau, and quoting him, and then eventually my quoting him turns into my playing him. Its a puzzle for the audience, in a very delightful way. Im assigned this character for this actor, and the character may slowly bleed into another person. Its a fascinating kind of puzzle.The Pig Iron nameTroupe members named themselves Pig Iron when they were going to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and had to provide a name. Someone had just directed the David Mamet play American Buffalo, which has a scene where someone says: Hey, didnt someone steal Ruthies pig iron? Wheres Ruthies pig iron? We had no idea what pig iron was, so pig iron started out as a private joke, Mr. van Reigersberg says. Anything you didnt know what it was, we called it pig iron. As a joke, someone suggested they call themselves Pig Iron. It turns out that pig iron actually is something used in theater. Its a part of the counterweight system. If youre flying in a piece of scenery the counterbalance of the weight of the scenery is made up of pig iron. So its a theatrical pulley system, he says. And its a fitting name for what the troupe does. Much like pig and iron is an unusual combination of words that dont seem to fit together, he says, Were a company that likes to make unusual and somehow fitting combinations of things.

Green Girl is played by Debi Guthery, whose songs include the Goldfinger theme originally performed by Shirley Bassey for the 1964 James Bond film of the same name. Ms. Fornara says she can detect a trace of Bassey in Ms. Guthery, whose Green Girl character is rather, er, outgoing. Green Girl doesnt have an edit button, Ms. Fornara says. Ms. Guthery suggests the word tart might be appropriate for a family newspaper to describe her character. Shes very sexually free and doesnt apologize for that, Ms. Guthery says. The 1960s marked the dawn of an era for more frank discussion and displays of sexuality, and Green Girl symbolizes that. Her characters rather easy virtues, however, were not the primary allure of Shout! for Ms. Guthery. Ive always loved the s music, she says. Ive always wanted to sing those songs. Orange Girl is played by Joyce Austin, who works fulltime as a middle school coordinator for the Collier County School District. How has she managed a demanding day job and nights of rehearsal followed now by a month of performances? Lots of vitamins and energy drinks, Ms. Austin says. The show appealed to her for one main reason. Definitely the music, she says. But she also likes its hopeful spirit of believe in love, no matter what. Jasmine Vizena is Yellow Girl, the only American character in the show. She is a little fireball, Ms. Fornara says. Yellow Girl is on a quest to go to England and meet Paul McCartney of the Beatles. Blue Girl is played by Alyssa Haney, a combination of character and performer that Ms. Fornara compares to a singer from a more recent era Posh Spice of the Spice Girls. If Ms. Haney were in the movies, the director adds, The camera would love her. Red Girl, the youngest member of the singing, dancing ensemble, is played by JamieLynn Bucci.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Congratulations. Your talent for working out a highly technical problem earns you well-deserved praise. The weekend could bring news about a friend or relative. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel compelled to get involved on the right side of a seemingly unfair fight. But appearances can be deceptive. Get the facts before going forth into the fray. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bullying others into agreeing with your position could cause resentment. Instead, persuade them to join you by making your case on a logical point-bypoint basis. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Resist pushing for a workplace decision you might feel is long overdue. Your impatience could backfire. Meanwhile, focus on that still-unsettled personal situation. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor doing something different. You might decide to redecorate your home, or take a trip somewhere youve never been, or even change your hairstyle. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might want to take a break from your busy schedule to restore your energy levels. Use this less-hectic time to also reassess your plans and make needed changes. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) What you like to think of as determination might be seen by others as nothing more than stubbornness. Try to be more flexible if you hope to get things resolved.

YesTake Glee, lose the preaching, add college naughtiness and you have Pitch Perfect, a toe-tappin good time that keeps the energy and laughs consistently high throughout. Set in the surprisingly cutthroat world of collegiate a cappella competitions, the story focuses on aspiring DJ Beca (Anna Kendrick), one of the newest members of Barden Universitys all female Barden Bellas. Other principals include Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson), who calls herself that so the twig bitches dont do it behind her back, sl utty St acie (Alexis Knapp), lesbian/token black chick (the writers killed two stereotypes with one stone there) Cynthia Rose (Ester Dean), senior nice girl Chloe (Brittany Snow) and senior bitch/captain Aubrey (Anna Camp). The Bellas biggest competition is Bardens Treble Makers, an allmale group that regularly wins national championships. Theyre also mostly a bunch of jerks. The script by Kay Cannon wont win any points for originality, as its full of stock characters with silly drama/ obstacles to overcome, including a love story for Beca with Treble Maker Jesse (Skylar Astin). Really, though, the story just needs to be funny enough to hold our interest between music sequences and it is. Wilson (Bachelorette) g ets the most laughs as she uses her big body and a Tasmanian accent to great effect, and overall the film is outrageous without going over the top. Even better, during the competitions, John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks play broadcasters whose one-liners nearly steal the movie yes, they really are that funny. But the real reason youll enjoy the cheery spirit of Pitch Perfect is the music, which is full of old and new pop tunes thatll make you want to dance in the aisle. Some are frowned upon Aubrey mistakenly thinks the Bellas can win with Ace of Bases I Saw The Sign, a song no one ever liked while others are championed as heavyweight pop anthems (Young MCs Bust A Move, Kelly Clar ksons Since Youve Been Gone and Bruno Mars Just The Way You Are, to name a few). And to top if all off, there are frequent references to The Breakfast Club, the movie that epitomizes teen angst and has a great soundtrack. Any movie that loves The Breakfast Club this much is OK in my book. Cast members did their own singing and hold up pretty well, especially Snow, who was in Hairspray (2007) and has only gotten better since. And although this film might not make an A-list lead out of Anna Kendrick (Up In the Air), whose acting is superior to her singing and dancing, she holds up well enough here to be a likeable protagonist. Pitch Perfect is a movie you see with a group of friends who like to yell and be free and have a great time. More than one person told me they wanted to see it again as soon as it was over, and its hard to argue with them. LATEST FILMSPitch Perfect c S o p M B W danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> A company called Varsity Vocals hosts high school and collegiate a cappella competitions each spring. The 2011 collegiate winners from the Berklee College of Music called themselves Pitch Slapped, which is one of the taglines for this lm. Dredd (Karl Urban, Lena Headey, Olivia Thirlby) A futuristic cop (Urban) who serves as judge, jury and executioner gets trapped with a rookie trainee (Thirlby) inside a prison-like complex run by drug-lord Ma-Ma (Headey). Hyper-violent and intense, the film features stunning slow-motion action sequences and is dutifully entertaining. Rated R. 10 Years (Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Chris Pratt) Old friends reunite for their 10-year high school reunion; some have moved on and are doing well, others, not so much. Its occasionally funny, but with so many storylines it gets as boring as youd expect a reunion at which you dont know anyone to be. Rated PG-13.The Master (Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams) A WWII veteran and lost soul (Phoenix) goes under the wing of a charismatic cult leader (Hoffman) whos making up the rules as he goes along. The acting is superb, but writer/director Paul Thomas Andersons (There Will Be Blood) story is slow and underwhelming. Rated R. CAPSULES

Such a daunting task lay ahead. He did not want to show fear, not with Linney standing by him. He had always been the macho type, the one who stood out in any crowd as the tough guy. Now, he was but a shadow of his former self. His confidence shattered; self pity had taken over. Linney looked at him, You can do it, you know. Just think of what you have accomplished in the last few months. Jeremy looked in those big blue eyes and saw nothing but love. He tried to smile for her. She was the brave one, he thought. The sun formed a sort of halo around her dark curls. She looked like an angel, his angel of mercy. He looked back at the steps. A flash, a memory, flitted across his eyes. Then another and another. He was back there for a second, at the moment of the explosion. He tried so hard to forget, but he knew he never would. He went off to Iraq as a big, bulkedup soldier. He had returned a broken, helpless man with no legs. How could he go on? What was left of life for him? Linney could see the doubts forming within Jeremy. She bent down to the wheelchair, gave him a kiss and said, I will always be here, right beside you, both physically and mentally. You need to believe in yourself. You can become a part of your former self, the good, kind, loving part you think youve lost. You can do anything you set your mind to doing, you know that. I know its hard but look at the progress youve made so far and youre alive! He knew she was right, but he was afraid. He had received his prosthetic legs months ago, but would not get out of the chair. He would wear them for short periods of time, trying to adhere to the regime his PT officer had given him, but still, the fear took over. He didnt want to fail in Linneys eyes. He would come to this park almost every day and stare at these steps. In his mind, they represented progress, accomplishment, hope. If he could walk up those steps, he believed he could do anything. Linney knew he could do anything he tried; she believed in him. He was not so sure. But these steps; he dreamed about them at night. A nightmare actually, because he could never make it to the top, couldnt make the climb out of his depression and always woke up feeling a failure. Linney turned, walked up and sat on the top step. She looked down at him with a smile. Jeremy sighed, a big sigh, actually a gulp of air. He stood up on his new legs, walked over to the steps, looking up at that smiling face and started to climb.

Ships Registry: Bahamas Marco Island Center for the Arts presents expert art conservator SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYViviana Dominguez, international master of art conservator, is the guest lecturer for the Marco Island Center for the Arts gallery reception at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9. Ms. Dominguez will talk about what a conservator does, and what her recent work in Haiti has done to preserve the countrys material culture from the 2010 earthquake. A new resident of Marco Island, she works with major museums around the world, specifically in the United States, from Los Angeles to Miami. Currently she is with the Smithsonian Institute of Haitian Culture Recovery Project. She recently returned from Haiti and will continue her work there throughout the next year. This is an unprecedented opportunity to learn for artists, collectors and anyone interested in conservation and restoration of art and artifacts, says Lynn Holley, executive director of the art center. The devastation of time, war and natural disasters has a huge impact on material culture. Ms. Dominguez is not just an expert, but a part of a hands-on group of select individuals who are on the ground working to identify, fix and train Haitians on preserving their heritage. What this group does is a bit like triage in an emergency room. It is extremely important, interesting and educational. The lecture is part of the monthly gallery reception hosted by the center every second Tuesday. Admission is free for members of the Marco Island Center for the Arts and their guests; non-members are asked for a donation of $5 to help cover the cost of refreshments and of presenting special lectures to the public. This month, the Black & White juried show remains on exhibit, as do recent works by Gerry Brynjulson. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. For more information, call 394-4221. Viviana Dominguez at work in Haiti.

Art and God of Carnage will rotate from performance to performance on The Norris Center stage Oct. 20-Nov. 18 (previews Oct. 16-19). Patrons can see one show one evening and the other show the next, or they can take advantage of Marathon Madness Saturdays and see both productions on the same day. Kristen Coury, the companys founding artistic direcctor, is directing Art. A comedy that raises questions about art and friendship, it concerns three long-time friends, Serge, Marc and Yvan. When Serge buys a large, expensive, completely white painting, Marc is horrified, and their relationship suffers considerable strain as a result of their differing opinions about what constitutes art. Yvan, caught in the middle of the conflict, tries to please and mollify both of them. God of Carnage takes place over the course of an evening as two pairs of parents, one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park, meet to discuss the matter in a civilized manner. As the meeting goes on, however, the adults become increasingly childish and the night devolves into chaos. Cody Nickell, Gulfshore Playhouses new artistic associate, is directing God of Carnage. Sponsored by Patty and Jay Baker, Reza in Rep launches Gulfshore Playhouses partnership with the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. With a ticket stub from Art, patrons will receive two-forone admission to the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art. With a ticket stub from the museum, patrons will enjoy a 10 percent discount on admission to the theater. Gulfshore Playhouses 2012-13 season continues with the one-man I Am My Own Wife (Jan. 18-Feb. 3), The Importance of Being Earnest (Feb. 14-March 3), The Whipping Man (March 15-30) and Master Class (April 5-21). All shows are presented at The Norris Center, with the exception of Master Class, which will be presented in the Daniels Pavilion at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts.

A strange brass object was auctioned in Chicago in 2011. It was identified as a mechanical wine pourer. It looks like a construction toy with a rectangular arm made of brass rods. Its shaped to hold a bottle. The arm is at the top of a 14-inch-high H-frame made of brass rods. Turn a crank at the bottom of the frame, and the arm and bottle dip down. It was indeed a wine pourer. It was marked Yeo, Ratcliffe & Dawe, so it was possible to learn more about it. The company opened in 1946 in London, and was sold in 1961. Online records of local archaeology studies proved the company was housed in a building constructed in 1415 (yes, its almost 600 years old!) and housed a wine merchant even then. The building was restored many times, and the 1946 restoration revealed an amazing history. It had been a three-story building serving as a wine merchants shop and home. Parts of the original 15th-century roof, 15thand 16thcentury beams, an original fireplace, an old white oak floor and 18thand 19thcentury additions were found. Some of the original plaster mixed with straw was still in place. An early womans shoe and some clay pipes that were hundreds of years old also were discovered. The mechanical wine pourer dates from the recent owner sometime around 1950. But the brass pourer had extra value for collectors because of its time in the historic building. It sold for more than $1,950. Q: What can you tell me about my electric percolator? It not only makes coffee, but can toast a slice of bread at the same time. The attached metal plate says, Armstrong Perc-o-Toaster Model PT. What is the age and value? A: The Armstrong Perc-o-Toaster Model PT was made by Armstrong Electric and Manufacturing Corp. of Huntington, W.Va. The company was founded in 1899 and made table stoves, electric ranges and other electrical appliances. Your combination percolator-toaster was first made in 1918, and was still being made in the 1930s. A waffle iron mold, which could be inserted after removing the toast drawer, was available as an accessory. A 1931 ad in the Saturday Evening Post claimed that the Perc-o-Toaster also could cook bacon and eggs. The base of the appliance was made in different finishes, including nickel plate, black enamel and white enamel. The price in 1931 was $11.85.

However, the appliance can be used only with its original cord, which has a non-standard double-plug arrangement. Q: Is there any value to the old toys given out with McDonalds Happy Meals? A: McDonalds introduced Happy Meals in 1979. The meal came in a box decorated like a circus wagon, and included a McDoodler stencil, McDonaldland character eraser, ID bracelet, puzzle lock, spinning top or McWrist wallet, a wristwatch-shaped wallet. Millions of Happy Meal toys have been made since then. Disney toys were first included in 1987, and Teenie Beanie Babies in 1997. These toys appealed to adult collectors as well as children. Toys are tested to make sure they are safe for young children before they are included in Happy Meals. A choice of a toy for a boy, a girl or a child 3 years old or under usually is offered today. Toys from McDonalds Happy Meals often are listed for sale online. Most sell for $5 or less. Q: In the mid-1980s, I bought a matching carved oak buffet, table and four chairs from a local Minnesota antiques dealer. I think she said she bought the set somewhere in the South. Theres a plaque inside one of the buffet doors that says: Wood Green Furnishing Co., Actual Makers of Good Hand Made Furniture, 134b High Road, Wood Green, N.22, Telephone Bowes Park 2767. I can find out nothing about this furniture maker. Can you help? A: Wood Green is a district within the city of London. The Wood Green Furnishing Co. started the legal process of liquidating its assets in 1941, so your furniture was made before the 1940s. Tip: Changing temperatures bother a grandfather clock. An inside corner is the best place for such clocks. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

PAST R EPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews:Caf Lurcat, 494 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 213-3357. Despite its grand scale vaulted ceilings, oversized pendant lamps, sprawling dining areas spilling into the outdoors Caf Lurcat creates a sense of warmth with muted colors, light woods and white linens. Its the kind of place where you want to slow down and savor several courses of food and several glasses of wine. The menu ranges from simple comfort food (pot roast or roasted chicken and grapes) to more complex creations (pork tenderloin with spiced cherries and couscous with toasted pumpkin seeds). Either way you go, you wont be disappointed. Even side dishes a mlange of English peas, sugar snap peas and fresh fava beans sauted in butter for us will delight. But be sure to save room for the signature cinnamonsugar doughnuts or fried huckleberry pie. Dessert is not to be missed. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2011 Daniela's, Wiggins Pass Crossing Plaza, 13500 Tamiami Trail N.; 514-4414: The flavors of eastern Europe shine here in the hands of the eponymous chef and her sister. Add the violin stylings of Oleg Timuta (Saturday nights) and it's possible to imagine you are in a little Romanian cafe rather than a Naples strip center. Romanian, Hungarian and Italian fare meld harmoniously, the result of the chef's heritage and travels. Salatas de vinete, aka Mom's delicious eggplant spread, is a great starter, lightly seasoned, smooth and silky, served with bread. The chiftelute, traditional Romanian meatballs, were special, too, served with cool, salty-sour pickles. Two adventurous souls can share the Transylv ania platter, which features sarmale (homemade cabbage rolls), mititei (hand-rolled sausage) and csirke paprikas (classic Hungarian stew). All were firstrate, served with tasty polenta, spaetzle and vegetables. The capallacci verdi alla zucca (pasta filled with pumpkin, ricotta and Parmesan with a bechamel sauce) showed the kitchen has serious Italian chops, too. Save room for superb chocolate mousse or tiramisu. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2011 Seor Tequilas Fine Mexican Grill, 26801 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 948-9700: Seor Tequila, which has locations in Lee and Collier counties, falls somewhere between rustic momand-pops serving food thats muy autentico and slicker establishments pushing fare thats more Americanized. On the plus side, the menu spotlights dishes specific to the Jalisco region of western Mexico, which is a little more interesting than the usual tacos, enchiladas and burritos. Whats more, the owners have gone to the trouble of adding their own flair to the interior dcor. On the downside, the restaurant occasionally falls into the trap of going gringo with too many toppings. The sopitos (corn masa cakes topped with beans and meat) were so deeply buried in sour cream and guacamole that we could barely tell what was underneath. The tacos al carbon, on the other hand, were simple: corn tortillas dipped in a special sauce then grilled and stuffed with char-grilled chicken or beef. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2012Swan River Seafood Restaurant and Fish Market, 3741 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 403-7000: North meets South at Swan River, which has been serving the best of New Englands catch beside the treasures of Southwest Florida waters for more than 10 years. It captures the spirit of the Cape, with its nautical blue and white interior, oars and shutters on the walls and menu offerings of whole belly clams, broiled scrod and lobster rolls. But its complemented by Florida stone crab claws (in season), Gulf grouper and Southern oysters. Appetizers of fried oysters and steamed clams proved that the kitchen has mastered varying cooking methods. And you wont find food buried under piles of fruity salsas and painted with colorful drizzles of infused oil or creamy coulis; its seafood cooked simply in order to showcase the quality of the main ingredient. Nowhere was that more evident than with the Maine gray sole, which was broiled to perfection with only white wine lemon and butter complementing the delicate flavor of the fish. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed April 2012Tarpon Bay, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa, 5001 Coconut Road, Bonita Springs; 444-1234: For a casual seafood bistro, it would be hard to beat Tarpon Bay. It features a ceviche bar, several varieties of raw oysters and lots of fresh fish options. Wine devotees will find a host of interesting selections from which to choose. Dishes are attractively plated and served by a well-informed staff. We loved the sampler platter of eight varieties of ceviche (choose from one, two, three or eight types), particularly the Peruvian, a mix of scallops and mahi in a spicy marinade, and the shrimp with roasted corn, tequila, coriander, cumin and cayenne. A grilled red snapper paired well with both the young soy white miso sauce and the slightly sweet ponzu sauce but a spicy tropical salsa was a little overpowering. A lobster pot featured clams, mussels, lobster tail, fingerling potatoes, corn and roasted tomato. We added seafood sausage, which was delicious. For dessert: a flight of housemade ice creams. We loved the peaches and mascarpone cobbler and the kahlua varieties. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2012 Key to ratings Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor

BARHAPPY HOUR Daily 5-7pm We Prepare Food With Passion For Lasting Impressions NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2012 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINEBrisket is not the lone star at Texas Tonys Barbecue remains one of those indulgences I try to limit myself to a few times a year. Theres something about platters of meaty, crusty ribs and sl owly smoked brisket and sweet pulled pork slathered in tangy sauce that releases the moderation control switch and allows me to consume mass quantities of low-and-slow-cooked animal protein. My most recent barbecue bacchanal unfolded at Texas Tonys BBQ Shack on the East Trail in Naples. Its a side venture of the Phelan family, owners of the locally grown Pinchers Crab Shacks. Tony Phelan is originally from the Lone Star state, and youll see lots of evidence around the restaurant Texas flags, horseshoes, stars and longhorn antlers. The decor has a studied rusticity, with its faux-distressed shades of deep red, antique white and denim blue and its rusty metal buckets hanging upside down from the ceiling as pendant lamps. Country music twangs softly in the background, just loud enough to please fans and not drive off the less enthusiastic listeners. Theres also an expansive open-air patio out front, but it wasnt in use on the evening of my visit. We were quickly seated in a comfortable booth near a handful of parties who, from the sound of it, were regulars. The staff did a good job of recognizing them as well as welcoming newcomers like us with Texas-style hospitality. A manager was active in the dining room, helping bus a dish here and there and making sure everything was just right at every table. And it was, for the most part. Aside from a few fixable flaws, Texas Tonys could serve as a successful new concept should the Phelans choose to expand it. First off, its nice that Texas Tonys has a full liquor license. Most barbecue joints stick with beer and wine, and if you prefer finer wines or craft brews youre usually out of luck. Texas Tonys does offer Shiner Bock from Texas on draft ($5.50), which my companion sipped while I enjoyed a rum-and-coke ($5.50). Two-for-one drink specials were still on, so we got more bang for our bucks. Appetizers can be a tough call in barbecue restaurants. You really want to save room to try a range of meats for the main course, and they usually come with multiple sides. In the interest of full reportage, we decided we had to try the BBQ pork nachos ($7.99) and boom boom shrimp ($9.99). The other options were chili, three-meat stew and chicken wings. The multicolored nachos were, of course, loaded to the rafters with cheese, jalapenos, diced tomatoes and sour cream. Unfortunately, the chopped pork got rather lost in the jumble of toppings. The bits we found were good crusty yet moist but we wanted more of it and less of the other stuff. It did not make a compelling showcase for the pork. We used the tortilla chips to compare the two house-bottled barbecue sauces. One was sweet-hot, while the other was more mustardy. Theres also a Texas Tonys hot pepper sauce, but we found the barbecue sauce hot enough. Texas Tonys offers fish and chips and fried shrimp for those who dont want barbecue. Another alternative is the boom boom shrimp a name that seems to have become ubiquitous for shrimp dressed up with a spicy sauce. This rendition was flavorful, with a good balance of Buffalostyle heat mellowed by a creamy sauce. The shrimp batter was light, almost like a tempura, and the shellfish within were succulent. Unfortunately, the crisp coating tended to get mushy and fall off as it absorbed sauce. Perhaps a lighter application might help. Appetizers were quickly brushed aside when the main attractions arrived. Like most barbecue places, Texas Tonys offers multiple combinations of meat to suit every palate: half or full racks of baby back or St. Louis ribs; brisket sandwiches or platters; half and whole smoked chickens. A couple of specialty sandwiches caught our eye, so we decided to try the Texan ($10.99), a thick layering of brisket, cole slaw, pickles, onions and barbecue sauce served on Texas toast. It sounds like a mouthful and it was but the combination of flavors proved a winner. The thinly sliced beef was sooooooooo tender and juicy. From what Ive read, its smoked for 15-18 hours. The slaw added crunch and creaminess, while the pickles contributed salty bite and the raw onion brought a little heat to the party. It might be a tad messy, but the toast held up surprisingly well and you could eat it with a fork if you preferred. The sandwich came with one choice of side; the collard greens we selected were tender but on the sweet side. A barbecue sampler with three meat choices and two sides ($14.99) proved the best way to test a range of items. The spice-rubbed baby back ribs had a good, charry bark along the edges, but the meat remained incredibly tender and had the all-important pink smoke ring. A quarter chicken was super-moist, and the meat slipped easily off the bone. Its darkly varnished skin was visible evidence of the restaurants smoker, which uses orangewood a subtle alternative to the stronger hickory or oak. We also liked the Texas sausage, a salty natural-casing link that boasts the kick of jalapenos and a squirt of molten cheese within. Like everything else about Texas, it was big and bold. As for the sides we chose, the potato salad had a tangy mustard dressing, but the macaroni and cheese appeared to be pasta drenched with cheese sauce rather than baked in it. Personally, I love the crusty edges of the baked variety, but its a matter of taste. Instead of Texas toast, we got a corn muffin with this plate and it was perfect sweet, moist, buttery -rich. In fact, it was richer than our dessert in a good way. Cheesecake can be tootoo much, especially after a meal like this. But the sweet potato cheesecake ($3.99) found the perfect middle ground between sweet potato pie and cheesecake. Writing this, my stomach begins to ache anew, as if Id just ingested the whole meal again. As it is, I am happy to savor the memory and let Texas Tonys be my last good barbecue meal of the year. 1.
