INSIDE Town Hall Talk2009 alumnae P.J. ORourke checks in with Naples Town Halls Rick Borman. A19 Getting up closePhotographer Martin Schoeller searches for a flash of vulnerability and integrity. C1 Ray Dearborn, then a 25-year-old United States Navy ensign, was in the middle of the scariest event of the Cold War, the 13 harrowing days of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. The United States and Soviet Union teetered on the precipice of World War III as the superpowers haggled and maneuvered and deliberated and postured. Mr. Dearborn, now a part-time Naples resident, was a small part of it, serving on the USS Hoist, a salvage ship that was part of the American armada. Mr. Dearborn says his wife, Helen, back in Virginia, knew more about the machinations of the crisis as the U.S. Navy quarantined Cuba and prevented any more Soviet ships from reaching the island. She knew the magnitude, he says. But he didnt. He was literally at sea and beyond the reach of the media. In those pre-Internet days, Mrs. Dearborn and other American civilians followed developments on the nightly news or in their daily newspapers. Most Americans were likely watching television on Oct. 22, 1962, when President John F. Kennedy told the country and the world about the offensive missiles in Cuba.

I had just learned by phone that two family members intend to divorce. Meanwhile, Id spent several recent days talking about the Big D with a close friend, a man at once brilliant and brokenhearted. My eastbound jet arced out of Colorado more than seven miles above the patchwork squares and circles of the western prairie, where the deep autumn lay drenched in afternoon sun. Green splashes of winter wheat punctuated the otherwise austere palette of browns lying far below me like misplaced algae blooms, planted to sprout before the Great Plains turn white and silent with winter. Come April, the tiny stalks will remain verdant from their dormancy under snow, and by midsummer the wheat will stand in chesthigh golden splendor. To me thats the landscape of divorce, done right: a seed planted in the face of winters difficult and frozen season, followed by future bounty. But its sure no picnic. I pretended I wanted to die, David Pulizzi wrote me while sitting on my front porch. Hed driven there from the mountains of central Pennsylv ania. What I really wanted, though, was to live again. Happily, peacefully. But I couldnt figure out how. On every front, I felt like a loser in the eyes of everyone I knew. In my own eyes, I was an utter, ceaseless disappointment. With this dismal disposition, I took off at 5 in the afternoon, drove all night and much of the next day 1,200 miles until I reached the place where I hoped, dimly, to begin again. My front porch. Looking at all that from ab ove, its hard not to conclude that divorce may be the single greatest cultural gift that Americans have ever offered the world. We long since missed the chance to rank at the top of the list of noble nations who first halted the buying and selling of human beings. The British made that form of slavery illegal early in the 19th century, long before we did and without a bloody Civil War to get it done. But when it comes to busting another kind of slavery, the kind that requires two human beings who do not love each other to carry on as if they do personally, economically, socially, legally or any other way we have achieved unparalleled progress. After all, divorce has long been anathema an ugly thing, an assumed tragedy, a sign of failure, weakness or lack of virtue punishable by all kinds of social and economic sanctions, or worse. All of which is nonsense. Divorce does not challenge marriage (an institution I support wholeheartedly), at least not substantive marriage. Instead its a remedy for slavery. And slavery is immoral, a toxic snakebite on the soul. Americans have invented meaningful divorce, and consecrated it, just as we invented and consecrated the automobile. First we designed it, and then we mass-produced it, making it both affordable and accessible to those other than just the very rich. And we continue to take advantage of it. Additionally, every single divorce is a dying echo of courage and hope, which should always be celebrated. Love is risky, as everyone knows, and thats because sometimes it turns out to be a chimera a shape-shifting fantasy that can burn those who gamble on its merits. But the courage and hope that bet on love in the first place, by putting down the marriage chip rather than just hopping into bed and cohabiting, remain real and glorious, win or lose the pot. Its true that a lot of pots have been lost lately, but at least they havent become cultural prison cells. In the United States, about 43 percent of first marriages will not reach the 15-year mark, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In Florida alone, more than 80,000 divorces take place each year. Below my plane, the Arkansas River spilled from the alpine slopes of the Rocky Mountains, split the Royal Gorge in a torrent, then meandered out across the stark plains of eastern Colorado into southern Kansas. That river pushes through northeastern Oklahoma, traverses Arkansas, then breaks free of the Ozark mountains in the cotton-pickin flatlands to the east (I watched this happen from the jet). Finally, the Arkansas marries the mighty Mississippi River. Every inch of that journey is a landscape of divorce, both metaphorically and geographically, which is true of the entire nation. Thats a good thing, but good things are not always easy things. As a society, weve consecrated divorce, but weve done the consecrating mostly in pain, guilt and sorrow mostly in suffering, in other words. And theres no need for that. Children, in particular, are said to suffer in the face of their parents divorces. But I question any assumptions about what such suffering means, or how it manifests itself among children of parents who love them unequivocally. In my experience of this matter, which is both broad and personal, if parents love their children unequivocally, they will never speak ill of each other in front of them, no matter what they think. They wont even imply criticism in tone, which can take some real self-control. Instead, theyll actively speak well of each other but not in servitude to a chimera, to a dysfunctional marriage. For such benevolent parents, there is no real divorce. There is only shared parenting, by parents who no longer sleep in the same bed. When divorce is the right thing to do (not a licentious surrender, but a refusal to accept slavery), and when its the first planting of a new seed at the edge of winter, like winter wheat, then it should be celebrated. Ive learned that Im neither doomed nor damned, wrote my friend, David Pulizzi. And so go I will, taking with me every precious gift. Ill think about how I might turn those gifts into a life. And in so doing, how I might someday return those gifts in spades to everyone who has ever been crazy and twisted enough to love my sorry, blessed ass.(Note: A version of this column first appeared in these pages in 2007.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 18-24, 2012 Workers fight for justice, from Walmart to ChipotleThe great recession of 2008, this global economic meltdown, has wiped out the life savings of so many people and created a looming threat of chronic unemployment for millions. This is happening while corporate coffers are brimming with historically high levels of cash on hand, in both the too big to fail banks and in nonfinancial corporations. Despite unemployment levels that remain high, and the anxiety caused by people living paycheck to paycheck, many workers in the United States are taking matters into their own hands, demanding better working conditions and better pay. These are the workers who are left unmentioned in the presidential debates, who remain uninvited into the corporate news networks gilded studios. These are the workers at Walmart, the largest private employer in the United States. These are the tomato pickers from Florida. With scant resources, armed with their courage and the knowledge that they deserve better, they are organizing and getting results. This week, Walmart workers launched the first strike against the giant retailer in its 50-year history, with protests and picket lines at 28 stores across 12 states. Many of these nonunion workers are facing retaliation from their employer, despite the protections that exist on paper through the National Labor Relations Board. The strikers are operating under the banner of OUR Walmart: Organization United for Respect at Walmart, started with support from the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. OUR Walmart members protested outside Walmarts Meeting for the Investment Community 2012 in Bentonville, Ark. Demanding a stop to the companys retaliations, the group promised a vigorous national presence at Walmart stores on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving and the largest retail shopping day of the year. The workers have an impressive array of allies ready to join them, including the National Organization for Women. Walmart has historically shrouded its business practices by engaging subcontractors to perform tasks like warehousing and delivery. In Elwood, Ill., warehouse workers employed by Walmart subcontractor RoadLink went out on strike immediately after a similar strike in California. According to Warehouse Workers for Justice, warehouse workers labor under extreme temperatures, lifting thousands of boxes that can weigh up to 250lbs each. Workplace injuries are common; workers rarely earn a living wage or have any benefits. According to WWJ, after 21 days on strike in Elwood, the workers won their principal demand for an end to illegal retaliation against workers protesting poor conditions. They will return to work ... with full pay for the time they were on strike. I spoke with one of the Elwood strikers, Mike Compton, who described just one of the awful conditions they endured at their low-wage job: We have a big problem with dust. You know, all our containers that we unload come from China, and theyre just filled with black dust. Its horrible, breathing the stuff in all day, you know, and wed have to ask seven, eight times to get a dust mask. Wed just be pointed in different directions, to a different manager, to a different department. And half the time wed walk away emptyhanded at the end of it anyway. Weve actually had trailers that were labeled defumigated in Mexico. We dont know why. People have had trouble breathing in the trailers. You know, dust something as simple and as cheap as a dust mask should just be readily available to anyone, in my opinion, especially a company as wealthy as Walmart. Compton was in Bentonville, Ark., Walmarts corporate headquarters, to protest at the Walmart investor meeting. Meanwhile, immigrant farmworkers have for generations labored under brutal conditions, picking tomatoes in the rural town of Immokalee. In 1993, they formed the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to organize in solidarity with consumers to demand that major restaurant chains source their tomatoes from farms that pay a fair wage to their workers. I spoke with farmworker and CIW organizer Gerardo Reyes-Chavez. He was in Denver, where the fast-food outlet Chipotle is based. CIW has been working on Chipotle for 10 years. He told me: We have been able to create a Fair Food Program, addressing abuses in the tomato industry. We created a whole new system ... to identify where abuses are going on and uproot them from the system. This is an opportunity for Chipotle to do the right thing. They claim that they sell food with integrity, and they are really focused on the sustainability ... what we are saying is, this is an opportunity for them to make it a reality. The day after I spoke with ReyesChaves, Chipotle signed the Fair Food Agreement. As the presidential candidates trade barbs over jobs in their heavily-controlled debates, workers at the grass roots are organizing for change, from Florida to California.

Even before the first presidential debate was over, they knew they needed to come up with an excuse, and fast. They settled on one that they havent stopped repeating: Mitt Romney lied his way to victory.The president would ha ve rebutted Romneys gross deceptions, except he was too focused on answering questions about the countrys future and too taken aback by Romneys brazenness to answer the former governor in real time. Although once he had a day or two and his witty rejoinders were cued up in a teleprompter, he was absolute hell on Romney.The case that Romney lied so brazenly that it undid the president who prides himself on his rhetorical genius rests, first, on the idea that the Republican misrepresented his own tax-reform plan. The president said that Romney proposes to cut taxes by $5 trillion over 10 years. Romney denied it. The presidents team responded, with its customary civility and nuance: Liar! But this isnt even a close call. Romney wants to cut income-tax rates 20 percent across the board and make up the revenue by closing loopholes and deductions. This isnt a tax cut; its a wash. Its been Romneys plan ever since he proposed it during the Republican primaries. Its such a simple concept that only willful obtuseness keeps the president or his team from understanding it. Its true that Romney hasnt specified which deductions hed cut, leaving that for a future negotiation with Congress. The Obama team takes this as license to accuse Romney of proposing to raise taxes on the middle class, a pure fabrication. When Obama made this charge in Denver, Romney proved that it is possible to reply to falsehoods one-on-one during a live debate. Romney firmly said he wouldnt raise taxes on the middle class and patiently explained why not. Romneys other whopping deception allegedly was his contention that his health-care plan covers people with preexisting conditions. On this, too, he was on solid ground. To simplify, he wants to extend the current legal protection that exists in the employer-based insurance market to the individual market, and make it easier for people to buy insurance in that individual market. Again, this is nothing new, but has been an element in his health-care policy from the beginning. When Obama aides say that the real Romney didnt show up in Denver, what they really mean is that he failed to live down to their rank caricature of him. As Romney showed during an hour and a half of high-pressure television, he is a capable and intelligent man who is ready to be president and has a substantial reform agenda. The Obama campaigns response to his debate victory basically was, Dont believe your lying eyes believe our super PAC ads. The presidents team evidently underestimated Romney once already. If it really believes this lying liar interpretation of the debate rather than pushing it in the media for lack of anything else to say it will underestimate him yet again. Mitt Romney bested President Obama on the merits in Denver. Anyone insisting otherwise simply cant handle the truth.

The increasing number of amputees, particularly from rising incidents of diabetes and returning vets from the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts, make Miracle Limbs a critical community resource. Bob and his brother and sister were raised in Mexico City and then Naples (he attended Admiral Farragut Academy from the seventh grade until graduation). As he looks back, Bob appreciates the core values his parents instilled in the family, including honesty and treating everyone with dignity and respect, irrespective of skin color, gender or disability. Bobs life changed dramatically one night 30 years ago when, while driving along on a calm and pleasant evening, his left front tire went flat. As he was changing the tire on the side of the road, he was hit by a speeding car and thrown more than 100 yards. He was in a coma for several months and in the hospital for a year. He was in traction with compound fractures in his legs, and he also had broken arms, fingers and pelvis. As an athlete who had enjoyed long-distance running, football, soccer and track, his spirit (and body) were broken. There were years of surgery, leg braces, physical therapy and ultimately, amputation of his right leg above the knee. When he woke from the anesthesia, Bob says, I was consumed with anger, fear and the feeling that I had been condemned to a life of eternal punishment. Where was God? Why me? For the next 25 years, Bob says, he substituted his zeal for life, his sense of adventure and his trust in family and friends with pain pills, liquor, lies, cheating, fear and anger. Self-esteem was non-existent. All the values taught to me as a child and from life itself were obliterated from my being. Twice confined to alcohol rehab centers and hospital detox floors, he was finally told that another drink would kill him. Six years ago, having hit bottom, he went into an alcohol-induced coma, during which he was visited by what he believes was an angel, who told him there was a reason for everything that had happened to him and that his mission was to share this with others and help them. I knew from the instant I came out of that last coma what I was meant to do, he says now, as he celebrates six years of sobriety. Miracle Limbs-Courage in Motion was born at that moment. Bob feels blessed that he has lived to tell his story. I have become stronger and more confident to be able to converse with others about what its like to push the mind and body farther than most people think a r ( p o bobHARDEN e-mail: email@example.com PROFILES IN PARADISEAfter reaching rock bottom, amputee finds his purpose Talking points with Bob AyersSomething thats been on your mind: Funding Miracle Limbs-Courage in Motion in every way I can.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 18-24, 2012 (www.unrulygardener.com). But first, you have to apply site-specific knowledge. Here, Florida Weekly offers a simple distillation of that knowledge for any who hope to produce and harvest their own food by early in the New Year, and beyond. The information comes from experts who grow food in the subtropics as a vocation, not merely an avocation. Ms. Bell, for example, is one of a relatively new generation of highly educated, widely experienced master gardeners in her case, so deemed and certified by the University of Floridas Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences. Among her peers are Eva and Chris Worden of Worden Farm (www.wordenfarm.com) in Charlotte County, and John Puig, of Garden at Eden in Collier (www.edenflorida.org). They make their livings not only by growing and selling fresh local food, but by teaching the less experienced how to do the same thing in local soils, with the tools at hand and minus toxic weed or pest killers. Theres a simple reason theyve embraced such lives: As Geoff Lawton so eloquently puts it, reflects Ms. Bell, You can fix all of the worlds problems in a garden. Thats good news for anyone hankering to put garden spade to good earth in the American subtropics. Here, seeds, seasons, soils and the traditional northern notion of spring bounty may be turned if not on its head around a bit. This is not like growing tomatoes, lettuce or corn in Indiana, Ohio or New Jersey, in other words. If you aim to raise your own vegetables or fruit in Southwest Florida, now is the time the very latest time, in fact to begin with fall season produce. We can grow crops in all four seasons, but beginning in October we end our tropical perennial crops that are little known here and start what the rest of the country calls summer vegetables, explains Mr. Puig. These are the crops from midsummer up north: tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, Asian greens, and so on. There is still time to grow such vegetables this year in the case of tomatoes you may want to start with plants already in progress, rather than from seed but dont delay. As Thanksgiving comes around we can begin our cool season crops, the ones that up north they consider fall and spring crops, like kale, broccoli, and lettuce, he adds. And we can continue our warm weather crops until (or if) we lose them in a winter freeze. All you have to do is mix dirt, mulch, sweat and desire, add sun and seeds, toss in a dash of science and a smidgen of art, and voila! elixir of joy, the experts claim. Not to mention a recipe for steady daily work. For those who begin a garden, Eva Worden offers only a single caveat, the kind of warning one might deliver to would-be mothers and fathers with no experience of children. This takes a strong commitment to constant care. A garden is not finished once it is planted. Then its only just begun. It has to be maintained daily and checked frequently for watering needs, for fertilizing and for pest management. How to begin and whereThere is only one good place to start a garden here: in the sun. Vegetables need to be in full sun, for a minimum of four to six hours and ideally all-day sun, says Mrs. Worden. Her observation is seconded both by Ms. Bell and Mr. Puig. But all sun is not the same. Since the fall and winter sun rides lower in the southern sky, pick a garden site wellenough away from trees to provide enough exposure even in December and January. In choosing a site, dont worry about whether the soil seems too sandy. Worry first about access to water, and drainage. Vegetables are mostly water, so they need water every day, explains Mrs. Worden. Planning for irrigation, therefore, is essential before you put in the garden. Once you select the site, then determine the garden layout. Decide if you want to grow directly in your soil or if you want to use raised beds or containers, suggests Ms. Bell. To establish raised beds, you will build up the soil to a height of six inches or a foot above ground level and contain it with bricks, cinder blocks or untreated wood. Railroad ties or old telephone poles are so deeply saturated with toxic preservatives (creosote and the like), that they can leech into the soil and damage the produce. So they make poor borders. The advantage here, say the experts, is that your garden can escape flooding, its easier to reach and work with for those who arent as comfortable bending and squatting, and you can divide the garden into sections that are easy to manage. You can also use large containers and if youre growing cold-intolerant vegetables such as tomatoes, you can put them on rollers and easily move them into shelter, in the event of a freeze. But you dont have to let the threat of freeze determine your garden site, says Mrs. Worden. Another option is to have a plan to use protective row covers small rolls of them are sold at garden centers, she advises. They allow sunlight and water to transmit through, but theyre like frost blankets. Bed sheets, to a certain extent, to prevent settling frost, but they can break the structure of tomatoes. And if you put them on, take them off again the next morning for sun. As an alternative to both methods mentioned above, you can sink sturdy posts, attach wooden arms, and hang vegetable or fruit pots from them, growing a garden upwards instead of spreading it out. Again, caution the experts, make sure your garden has easy access to daily water, and make sure it has drainage in the case of pots, for example, ensure there are bottom holes where excess water can run off. But supposing you have a grasscovered backyard that has never seen a garden? No problem, says Mrs. Worden. If youre just starting out with grass, turn the grass over and break it up. Or, you can rent a sod lifter from a garden center and move the sod in pieces. Once youve cleared the space, you can break the soil up either by hand, or by renting a rotary-tiller, she suggests. Behold, the compost!You must amend the soil in Southwest Florida to grow a garden. Amend. The word is gardenerspeak, a euphemism for enriching the sandy local soils with compost and other materials Mr. Puig, for example, recommends less than a cup of seawater to add minerals. All that can give the soil a proper balance of required nutrients. The first thing you can do in a new garden, suggest the experts, is make sure that your soil has a healthy pH level. The pH is a measure of acidity or alkalinity of soil, explains Ms. Worden. For the most part around here, if youre amending soils with compost, the pH should be within a normal range for vegetable gardening. Ms. Bell recommends having it tested right off the bat, by calling your local agricultural extension office or asking in any gardening shop how to do that. Sandy soil can and should be amended most sandy South Florida soils are alkaline so I dont worry about it too much outside of planning for it, she explains. Since the pH affects the plants ability to uptake nutrients, I recommend a pH test and nutritional analysis when you first get started as a way to identify potential problems and to troubleshoot when problems do arise. It also helps ensure appropriate fertilization. After that, I only soil test if problems arise that I cant pinpoint elsewhere, or if I want to see how my soil-building techniques are progressing. Soil-building techniques mean adding compost or composted manure, for example and organic gardening here can produce bountiful rewards if you plan for it, says Mrs. Worden, who holds a doctorate degree in plant sciences from Yale University and will quote Walt Whitman: Behold this compost, behold it well!/Perhaps every mite has once formed part of a sick person, yet behold!/ The grass of spring covers the prairies/the bean bursts noisily through the mould in the garden/the delicate spear of the onion pierces upward (from This compost in Leaves of Grass). Ive taken some extra-long university courses in compost, she says cheerfully but heres the short version: Composting is an excellent solution for gardens here. A compost bin is more for aesthetic purposes and containment than it is necessary and instead of buying something, use a corner of your yard behind a tree in a pile, or you can use wire mesh supported by a couple metal stakes, made into a round cylinder. You throw in food scraps, things like carrot tops or left-over salad material. And to make sure no animals start coming, dont use animal products like eggshells or meat scraps. Coffee grounds are excellent. You can use yard debris, leaves and grass clippings and also shredded paper. Be sure its GARDENINGFrom page 1 What to plant when:Seasons here are distinct, but calendar dates are not. For example, gardeners can plant many fall vegetables in late winter, or spring vegetables in early summer, and expect a harvest. There are two climate-de ning characteristics of the southwest coast to keep in mind: one, the likelihood of one-night freezes several times between mid-December and late February, and two, heat in summer. If you plant vegetables or fruit vulnerable to freeze, have a plan to protect them when the temperature drops below 32 degrees. For more information, go to www.unrulygardener.com, or www.wordenfarm.com. >> FALL (plant Oct. 1 on): Tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, green beans, corn, peppers, Asian greens such as bok choy and others. >> WINTER: (plant Dec. 1 on): broccoli, sweet peas, hardier greens such as kale or lettuce varieties, potatoes, carrots, beets, radishes, strawberries >> SPRING (plant March 1 on): cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, black-eyed peas, okra, heat-tolerant greens such as collards, mustard greens and New Zealand spinach >> SUMMER (plant May 15 on): Sweet potatoes, papayas, okra, calabaza squash, and the like. Gardening classes, sites, and more information: The Community Garden Resource Guide at www.sw communitygardens.com offers comprehensive sources for gardening instruction, plots and more throughout Southwest Florida. Both Millisa Bell and Chris and Eva Worden offer gardening classes in which participants grow their own gardens on site doing their own work, but guided by the master gardeners. Those classes are impending, and they have limited space. Contact them at www.unrulygardener.com (Ms. Bell) and www.wordenfarm.com (the Wordens). There are many other good options, too. Garden at Eden in Collier County (www.edenorida.org) periodically offers both classes and community plots to individuals. In Lee County, Santiago De Choch, who manages the farmers market at the Lee County Alliance for the Arts, offers instruction to beginners and sophisticated gardeners alike. Contact www.greencoaches.net. Plots exist at the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundations community garden (www.LakesParkEnrichmentFoundation. org) as well. Team Punta Gorda in Charlotte (www. teampuntagorda.org) offers both excellent sites and the guidance of experienced and capable gardeners. As Geoff Lawton so eloquently puts it, You can fix all of the worlds problems in a garden. Milissa BellVANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYGerminating seeds, 1-2 week-old seedlings planted by Milissa Bell.

Dr. Spellberg, the head physician at Naples Urology Associates, is an awardwinning, highly respected leader in the eld of prostate health. His chief focus has always been on minimally invasive techniques and treatments.Join us about theMythsSecond Opinions: Why they are absolutely, positively necessary Get answers to your most important questions ProstateFIRST LECTURE: Wednesday, September 19th, at 12:00pm Naples Daily News Community Room 1100 Immokalee Road, Naples Lunch will be provided SECOND LECTURE: Wednesday, September 19th, at 5:00pm Lutgert Cancer Center 733 4th Avenue N., Naples Refreshments Served not treated paper. Most newsprint now is recyclable, they use soy-based inks. You want to have moist but not wet piles so add a little water to it. Composting is an excellent solution to soil fertility, and it can divert waste from a landfill. If you dont wish to do all that, however, Mrs. Worden recommends buying organic fertilizers, which amount to composted manure. You would want to look for the OMRI seal its an acronym for Organic Materials Review Institute. A few years ago it was difficult to find any such products. Now theyre available in many stores. Seeds, tools and pestsMr. Puig is succinct in his suggestion about how to plant seeds, and so are his colleagues: Follow the directions on the seed pack, he says. If youre starting plants from seed yourself, you can buy trays of teacupsized pots, place them in sun, and start the plants there. Or you can start them right in your garden. A good rule of thumb for planting seeds if you dont have directions, says Mrs. Worden, is to plant them as deep as the diameter of the seed. Its also important to give your vegetables or fruit trees, which are ideally planted in the spring plenty of space, adds Mr. Puig. Crowding rows too closely is a good way to lose plants. All of its work, clearly. But the work is easier with the right tools. What are the most important? Ms. Bell: My hands, of course. In addition to those, I call upon the aid of my trowel, long-handled cultivator, and my favorite tool, the collinear hoe (really saves the back). Mrs. Worden: Hoses, sprinklers, in our work (at Worden Farm) we talk about drip irrigation, we talk about composting pikes and there are other important tools. Its handy to have harvest baskets. Have good clippers and knives, a sun hat, a hoe, and there are several kinds. But the primary tool is irrigation water although at this time of year it might not seem that way. Mr. Puig, meanwhile, salvaged an old diesel-powered tractor and converted the engine to a vegetable-oil burner, a machine that steadfastly refuses to pollute anything. He might show you how to do that if you ask. Once youve prepared your soil and planted your seeds, expect results. Among those, of course, will be pests. For that, advice is readily available once you identify them, the experts say. Just ask. Also, you can plan to take some simple steps. First, keep in mind that planting a diverse range of vegetables can help prevent pests. But the greatest tool to fight pests or disease is to have a healthy plant, says Mrs. Worden. Thats achieved through well-nourished soil, with the compost and the addition of organic matter the most important. Often people have problems with nematodes, and there are good ones and bad ones, but increasing organic matter can help to prevent detrimental nematodes. On a home garden scale, the handpicking of large insects like caterpillars is an option. Finally, many organic pesticides are available through garden centers. There again, look for the OMRI label. No matter what happens when you plunge into the pleasure and work of growing your own food, you can easily avoid three classic mistakes made by beginners in Southwest Florida by heeding Ms. Bell: The most common mistakes are beginning your garden in March or April remember, our seasons are reversed from northern climates; ignoring soil structure; and giving up too soon, she says. Its OK if you kill a few plants. Just keep trying. COURTESY PHOTOSAbove: Some of the bounty at Worden Farms. Right: Eva and Chris Worden.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA10 WEEK OF OCTOBER 18-24, 2012 Great artFor Septembers Digital Design Weekend at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, artists Michiko Nitta and Michael Burton commissioned soprano Louise Ashcroft to sing, altering pitch and volume while wearing a face mask made of algae. According to the artists, since algaes growth changes with the amount and quality of carbon dioxide it receives, Ashcrofts voice, blowing CO2 against the algae, should vary the growths taste as to bitterness or sweetness. After the performance, the audience sampled the algae at various stages and apparently agreed. The artists said they were demonstrating how biotechnology could transform organisms. The entrepreneurial spirit Jordan and Bryan Silvermans startup venture, Star Toilet Paper, distributes rolls to public restrooms in restaurants, stadiums and other locations absolutely free because the brothers have sold ads on each sheet. (Company slogan: Dont rush. Look before you flush.) Jordan, with 50 advertisers enlisted so far, told the Detroit Free Press in August that he came up with the idea, of course, while sitting on the can at the University of Michigan library. After an international trade association reported that women bought 548 million pairs of shoes in 2011 (not even counting those used exclusively for sports), the manufacturer Nine West has decided to start its own cable TV channel with programing on various aspects of footwear, according to an August New York Times report. Programs will feature celebrities rhapsodizing about their favorite pair, women who hoard shoes (purchasing many more than they know theyll ever wear even one time), tips on developing ones stiletto-walking skills and shoe closet designs. Its about a conversation, said a Nine West executive, not about a shoe. Habersham Funding of Georgia and its competitors make their money by buying terminally ill clients life insurance policies for lump sums, then continuing to pay the policies premiums so that they collect as beneficiaries upon death. The companies business model therefore depends on those clients dying quickly; a client who outlives expectations turns the investment sour. Thus, according to an August report by the New York Times, the companies run extensive background checks on the illnesses and lifestyles of potential clients and employ sophisticated computer algorithms that predict, better than doctors can, how long a client will live. Supposedly, according to the report, the companies are nonchalant about erroneous predictions. No company, they claim, has an official policy of hoping for early death. Leading economic indicators Scorpion antivenom made in Mexico sells in Mexico for about $100 a dose, but for a while over the last year, the going rate in the emergency room of the Chandler (Ariz.) Regional Medical Center was $39,652 a dose, charged to Marcie Edmonds, who was stung while opening a box of air-conditioner filters in June. She received two doses by IV and was released after three hours, to later find a co-pay bill of $25,537 awaiting her (with her Humana plan picking up $57,509), according to the Arizona Republic newspaper. The Republic found that Arizona hospitals retailed it for between $7,900 and $12,467 per dose except for Chandler. Following the newspapers report, Chandler decided to reprice the venom at $8,000 a dose, thus eating a $31,652 loss. Among the least-important effects of last summers drought in the Midwest: Officials overseeing the annual Wisconsin State Cow Chip Throw said there would be fewer high-quality cow patties. Said chairperson Ellen Paulson: When its hot, the cows dont eat as much. And what was produced, they just dried up too quick. A few patties had been saved from the 2011 competition, but, she said, Its not like you can go out and buy them. The animal kingdom The ongoing feud between two Warwick, R.I., households has intensified, according to an August complaint. Kathy Melker and Craig Fontaine charged that not only has neighbor Lynne Taylor been harassing them with verbal insults and threats, but that Ms. Taylor has now taught her cockatoo to call Melker, on sight, a nasty epithet. At least two teams of Swiss researchers are developing tools that can improve farmers efficiency and reduce the need for shepherds. The research group Kora has begun outfitting sheep with heart rate monitors that, when predators approach, register blood-pressure spikes that are texted to the shepherd, summoning him to the scene. Another inefficiency is cow farmers frequent needs to locate and examine cows that might be in heat, but professors at a Bern technical college are testing placing thermometers in cows genitals, with text messages alerting the farmer that a specific cow is ready for mating. (Since most insemination is done artificially, farmers can reduce the supply of bull semen they need to keep in inventory.) Researchers writing in the journal Animal Behaviour in July hypothesized why male pandas have sometimes been seen performing handstands near trees. They are urinating, the scientists observed, and doing handstands streams the urine higher on the tree, presumably signaling their mating superiority. A San Diego Zoo researcher involved in the study noted that an accompanying gland secretion gives off even more personal information to other pandas than the urine alone. Spending on health care for pets is rising, of course, as companion animals are given almost equal status as family members. In Australia, veterinarians who provide dental services told Queenslands Sunday Mail in August that they have even begun to see clients demanding cosmetic dental work including orthodontic braces and other mouth work to give dogs kissable breath and smiles improved by removing the gap-tooth look.

Faced with rental deposits, utility hook-ups, childcare, vocational training or acquiring transportation, they would often give up and go back to the abuser.

ORourkeBeing part of the Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speaker Series affords Naples residents and visitors the opportunity to interact with some of the worlds most influential people. A treasured aspect of this job for me is communicating with these speakers before and after they grace our podiums. P.J. ORourke is a Town Hall alumnus from 2009 and one of the best-loved political satirists in American literary history. Known for the brilliant cadence that flows throughout his work, hes written more than a dozen books, including Eat the Rich, On the Wealth of Nations, Republican Party Reptile and Dont Vote It Just Encourages the Bastard. Mr. ORourke also contributes to The Weekly Standard, House and Garden, Foreign Policy, The New York Times Book Review and The Atlantic Monthly, among others. His wit is out of this world, quite literally. For example, in his Candidates in Orbit story for The Weekly Standard (April 2012), he wrote: I sat in on a briefing by an officer from the part of the military that gathers satellite intelligence. The briefing was more or less classified (Eyes, Ears, Nose and Throat Only or something). He has also called out some of the worlds largest media outlets and continues to cover issues in a way that only he can. As our guest four years ago, Mr. ORourke shared his views on the just-inaugurated Democratic president. He also shared a few predictions. With the 2012 election just around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to catch up with him again. As usual, he didnt disappoint. Q: Your last appearance at Naples Town Hall was right after the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Your brilliant satire was both biting and prophetically accurate. How have your opinions of this president changed since those early days? A: He still seems like a nice young man who applied for a position teaching a course in Community Organizing at a junior college, filled out the wrong form, and accidentally got the job of president of the United States. Class participation will account for half the grade we get on Nov. 6. Q: One of my favorite quotes of yours reads simply: When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators. We have plenty of both. Would you please provide us with an inoculation against seduction by power and endemic stupidity in government? A: Government, with all its temptations and all its empty promises, is, indeed, hard to resist. We have to remind ourselves that surrendering our freedoms to government means a committee will run our lives. Weve all been on committees. Q: What are your thoughts on Twitter, Facebook, news sites like Huffington Post and the demise of journalism as a formerly exalted art form?

Hurry offer expires 10/26/12 Elections supervisor offers tips for absentee ballot votersMore than 44,000 Collier County voters already have requested absentee ballots for the Nov. 6 general election. Due to 11 proposed state constitutional amendments, the ballot for the General Election is three pages with content on all six sides. Because long lines are expected on voting day, officials urge citizens to consider voting absentee. Collier County Supervisor of Elections Jennifer Edwards offers the following tips to help ensure that an absentee ballot will be deemed valid: The deadline to request an absentee ballot to be delivered by mail is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31. After that, voters can pick up ballots at the Elections Office after calling in their request. After marking the absentee ballot, voters should place the ballot pages inside the green secrecy sleeve (also referred to as a secrecy envelope). The lack of a secrecy sleeve or envelope, however, DOES NOT invalidate a ballot. Voted absentee ballots must be returned to the Elections Office by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Completed ballots can be mailed or can be dropped off at the main Elections office in the Collier County Government Complex or at the Orange Blossom Boulevard branch office. Postage for mailed ballots is 65 cents. The signature on the absentee ballot envelope must match the voters signature of record. If you think your signature has changed since you registered to vote, you should update it with the elections office by completing a voter registration application. Voters can track a returned absentee ballot, or find out when their requested ballot was mailed, online at www.colliervotes.com. For more information, call 252-8450 or visit the above website.

The Kennedy administration set up a naval blockade of the island to prevent more missiles or equipment from being delivered. The blockade was actually deemed a quarantine at the time, Mr. Dearborn says. Why? Because, he explains, a blockade is considered an act of war. Now 75 years old, Mr. Dearborn has written a five-page summary of his experiences on the Hoist. Here is part of what he wrote: My story is different than most others since, naturally, most writings center on our president at that time, John F. Kennedy, Washington and Moscow. The crisis took this country perilously close to nuclear war; probably the closest it came at any time in our history. The Hoist was at sea when, Mr. Dearborn wrote, they received a radio teletype that Soviet missiles had been discovered in Cuba. American ships were alerted to the possibility of Soviet submarines in the vicinity. A submarine was bad news for ships such as the Hoist, according to Mr. Dearborn. Because of our small size and large engine rooms, a standard-size torpedo would surely send us to the bottom fast, but there was little we could do to prepare for such eventuality, he wrote. The Hoist was part of a powerful fleet that included aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarines, cruisers and other warships. That evening, Mr. Dearborn wrote, we received orders to interdict any Soviet ships headed south, and to use any means HEROFrom page 1 TOM LANGFORD / WWW.NAVSOURCE.ORGThe USS Hoist, above, and Ray Dearborn, then a 25-year-old United States Navy ensign.

Before dawn the next morning, three ships were detected by radar, headed south Hoist was the first to sight these three ships We were quickly joined by two destroyers. Ensign Dearborn spotted the Soviet ships. There were three huge freighters, unarmed, proudly flying the Soviet flag, and so heavily laden that we could barely see over their water lines, he wrote. There was plenty of cargo on deck, and risking an overactive imagination, the deck cargo looked like missile containers, long, narrow and large! Strangely, we never observed crew on deck. The Hoist tried to get the attention of the Soviet crew, but without luck. We even caused several near collisions, all to no avail, he wrote. The destroyers fired warning cannon shots across the bows of the two leading freighters, he wrote. Yet, the freighters continued heading south to Cuba. Then, they turned north, away from Cuba. Suppose they didnt stop? Mr. Dearborn says in his telephone conversation. We would have had to sink them. Then what? Thats an imponderable, perhaps, for historians to debate. Would sinking of the freighters have been the start of World War III? Mr. Dearborn doesnt know the answer. Its lucky they turned around, he says. Indeed. Lucky for that young ensign and the crews of the freighters and the rest of the world. The encounter with the freighters that he wrote about took place the day before the blockade or quarantine was announced. That was the end of the Hoists connection to the Cuban Missile Crisis. The ship went to Puerto Rico for other assignments. At the time, then Ensign Dearborn and other low-ranking officers and enlisted men didnt know the scope of the crisis. We didnt know how close we came to nuclear war, he says. The crisis came only 17 years after the end of World War II and nine years after the Korean War ended. The crisis didnt evolve into a shooting war, despite a warning shot or two, let alone a nuclear Armageddon. The blockade was the way to go, says Mr. Dearborn. While the U.S. Navy was doing the blockade, high-level, high-wire diplomatic talks between the two superpowers calmed the world. The missiles were taken out of Cuba. In 1968, six years after the Cuban Missile Crisis and after he left the Navy, Mr. Dearborn received a manila envelope at his Annapolis, Md., home. It was from the chief of naval personnel. Inside was a medal honoring his service. Hes never worn it. At least not yet. Yet there was not any heroism involved here, Mr. Dearborn wrote of his Cuban Missile Crisis service. Hoist was just in the right place when needed. My country owes me nothing. God Bless America! I think I might wear the medal for the first time on Oct. 22.

Decorative contacts could lead to post-Halloween nightmares SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYAs kids across the state shop for their Halloween costumes, the Florida Society of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Ophthalmology are warning Florida parents and teens about the dangers of non-prescription decorative contact lenses. Decorative contact lenses are increasingly popular to create elaborate costumes, offering blood drenched vampire eyes, glow-in-the-dark lizard eyes and more. Unfortunately, they can also lead to real-life nightmares, including permanent eye damage and vision loss. One study found that wearing decorative contact lenses increased the risk for developing keratitis a potentially blinding infection that causes an ulcer on the eye by more than 16 times. These patients were most often teenagers or young adults. All contact lenses require a prescription and proper fitting by an eye care professional. Even someone who has perfect vision needs to get an eye exam and a prescription in order to wear any kind of contacts, including decorative contact lenses. Products that claim one size fits all or no need to see an eye specialist can mislead consumers and might be on the market illegally. Unlike corrective lenses, which most patients understand to require professional screening and fitting, decorative lenses are easily obtainable in costume shops and online, which leads people to believe that they are safe, says Dr. Charles Slonim, president of the Florida Society of Ophthalmology. Unfortunately, its not uncommon to see permanent eye damage and vision loss from over-the-counter cosmetic lenses. We discourage all consumers from wearing contact lenses obtained in beauty salons, novelty shops or costume stores. In 2005, a federal law classified all contact lenses as medical devices and restricted their distribution to licensed eye care professionals. Illegal sale of contact lenses can result in civil penalties of up to $11,000 per violation. Additionally, some decorative lenses, such as trendy circle lenses, are not FDA-approved. Consumers should only buy decorative contact lenses from an eye care professional or a seller who asks for a prescription and sells FDA-approved products. To safely wear decorative contact lenses this Halloween or any time of year, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends following these guidelines: Get an eye exam from an eye care professional such as an ophthalmologist. Obtain a valid prescription that includes the brand name, lens measurements and expiration date. Purchase the decorative contact lenses from a licensed eye care professional or an eye product retailer who asks for a prescription.

HEALTHY LIVINGANTON OPARIN / SHUTTERSTOCK.COM A surgical team at Physicians Regional Healthcare System performed its first da Vinci System single-site cholecystectomy earlier this month. In a robotic procedure that left no scar, a patients gallbladder was removed through one tiny incision in the belly button. The Physicians Regional team was led by Dr. Mark Liberman, one of a small group of surgeons in the country who has received training to perform the surgery. While neither robotic surgery nor singleincision surgery is new, combining the two to remove the gallbladder required additional training and special equipment, Dr. Liberman says. Single-site instruments used with the da Vinci platform are the next step in the evolution of surgical technologies, he adds. Potential benefits of single-site gallbladder surgery include virtually scarless results, minimal pain, low blood loss, fast recovery, a short hospital stay and high patient satisfaction. The surgery can be performed in about one hour, and the typical hospital stay is less than 24 hours. More than 1 million people in the U.S. have their gallbladder removed each year. Most are performed with traditional laparoscopy using several incisions.

While many dogs enjoy swimming, few go to the extremes of a true water dog in maintaining a coat thats always damp if at all possible, and feet that are as muddy as can be. Walk around a puddle? Ive seen my dogs go out of their way to walk through a puddle. As if it werent hard enough to keep my old home clean, I decided to move to one that was even more difficult. Thats because the new home is on acreage, with more room for mud and more reason to be out in it, since Im outside with the dogs every day feeding my horses. I had to up my game to keep this house clean, but the same rules applied. The best way to keep floors clean is to never let them get dirty. And that means catching those muddy paws before they come inside. Here are some tips: Use mats. Put water-trapping mats both inside and outside the door. A small doormat can be jumped over, so go for something larger. The wider the area of matting, the more chance you have of every paw hitting the mat at least once. Outside my doors, I have large black industrial mats that hose off easily. Inside, I have color-coordinated Waterhog mats from L.L.Bean expensive but worth every penny. They really catch the muck. Teach dogs to wait for wiping. Its not difficult to teach a dog to wait on the mat for a paw cleaning. If youre patient and positive, youll be able to teach your pet to offer each paw in turn and stand patiently while you towel it off. One of my dogs used to be so good about this that hed lift each paw by name: Front. Now the other. Back. Other. Save your old towels. When towels get too ratty for guests to see, save them for use with your pets. Old towels are great for wiping paws, drying fur and even swiping a muddy paw print off the floor. My old towels have endured years of hot water and bleach. Theyre ugly, but they still do the job. You can also find superabsorbent towels and mitts made specifically for wiping paws, but Ive always found old towels to be more than up to the task. If you do need to buy paw wipes, compare their prices with shop towels. Never let a mess settle in. If a muddy paw gets past you, dont delay your cleanup. While this isnt such a hard-and-fast rule for such easy-clean surfaces as tile and hardwoods, its an absolute commandment when it comes to carpets. Keep cleaning supplies well stocked and at hand, and be sure to jump on a muddy paw print or any pet mess before it can set. With all the paws in my household, keeping on top of mud is a must. What the mats dont catch, I do, and the house stays cleaner for my diligence. My move to the country may have meant more mud, but it hasnt meant much more effort to keep the floors clean. Lots of mats underfoot and a little dog training will keep your pet from bringing all of the outside in.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank!Call us for details (restrictions apply) on these Government Loans Homeownership made Affordable!*Subject to credit qualification and underwriting review MONEY & INVESTING Federal Reserves money printing inspires readers inquisitivenessReaders often call or send e-mail after reading my column; but never quite as much volume as was received after Does the Federal Reserve print money? column from the first week of October. Many of the questions were similar in nature, so each question is not marked with a particular persons initials. Here are my answers. Q: You wrote that the Federal Reserve (Fed) is printing money and yet Fed Chairman Bernanke insists that he is not monetizing the U.S. debt. How can you be right? A: Yes, Fed Chairman Bernanke has stated that he is not monetizing the U.S. federal debt. To be clear, monetizing debt means printing fiat money to pay interest and principal on federal debt. As the U.S. dollar is fiat (not having a hard currency backing it) and since the Fed is buying the debt of the U.S. government, the question is relevant. Bernankes position is as follows: he is printing money electronically to pay for purchases of U.S. debt and mortgages and other assets until lower rates and Fed credit creation are no longer needed. As it is temporary, since he intends to stop doing so at some point in time, as this is not to be a permanent practice, he does not acknowledge it as monetizing. (See transcript of Bernankes Oct. 1 speech to Economic Club of Indiana at www.creditwritedowns.com) My answer is that the Fed can, and is, printing money to buy all sorts of financial assets including $40 billion of mortgages bought monthly under QE3. The Fed is also printing money to buy the federal debt. Though he does not pronounce the printing as permanent (and who would ever expect him to make such an admission), the U.S. federal deficit is seemingly permanent and growing in size. So there is really no reason to believe that the Fed will stop showing up for Treasury auctions. So, to me, there is no reason to parse words. It sounds akin to someone claiming that he is not a drug addict because he is using drugs for four years but maintains that his usage will not be permanent. Q: When the Fed buys mortgages to lower interest rates is it monetizing the U.S. Debt? A: No, the Fed is not monetizing the U.S. debt when it buys other forms of debt. To the extent that the Fed is not paying cash for those mortgages and is crediting the reserve accounts of the banks from which the mortgages were bought, the Fed is again creating a liability which can be easily turned into paper currency. Electronic printing is tantamount to paper printing. Q: Why do you call electronic printing the same as paper money printing? A: At any time, the commercial banks can request that the electronic money owed to them (booked on the Fed balance sheet as a liability owed to the banks and called Bank Reserves) be converted into paper money. The commercial banks request paper dollars and the Fed gets dollars printed. They then owe the dollars to the U.S. Treasury. Q: Isnt this inflationary? A: Yes, no, maybe. Yes, printing money and monetizing debt is ultimately inflationary. But, it is not currently inflationary as the Fed is fighting deflation. In terms of MV = PQ, Money supply is increasing but Velocity (speed with which money is spent) has been decreasing so Price has not risen. The Fed would answer that when the economy starts to impr ove, it will sell its financial asset holdings and the Bank reserve liabilities will be decreased thus capping runaway lending that banks are known to do in inflationary times. So maybe the Fed can reverse inflation caused by printed money.Q: Does gold solve the problem? A: Holding gold is one solution to very uncertain times and where fiat currencies are being trashed. But a return to a gold standard? I believe the answer is no for an economy to grow it needs to expand money supply and that would entail additional gold purchases. The problem is not that we lack a hard currency but that we lack responsible governments. As long as governments issue debt (outside of war financing), the country will have problems. Our currency has declined for many reasons. The primary reason is that our government keeps issuing debt to finance out of control entitlement and social programs and pay for gross inefficiencies throughout the bureaucracy. Q: Who is to blame? A: The Fed is not knocking at Congress door and asking for more deficit spending so the Fed can be the buyer of such debts. Bernanke goes before Congress asking for a solution to runaway deficits. Yet, he continues to buy Treasury debt and finance the deficit. Citizens are to blame, as some dont vote and some others vote their own wallets. Presidents, senators and congressmen and women collectively, need to create a bipartisan solution to end deficits. When people vote for their piece of the pie, they are ignoring the fact that deficits will continue to make the pie smaller and, soon, there will be no pie left for our children.

However, some gains look large compared to depressed levels, noted economist Dr. Gary Jackson, the director of the Regional Economic Research Institute. Its all relative to where you were, he said.

Other factors such as still-too-high unemployment figures and relatively low (although increasing) consumer confidence, may cast a pall over the bright sales figures said Dr. Jackson. If you look at employment levels its still not back, to the 5 or 6 percent figures that signal a full recovery, Dr. Jackson said. He also pointed out that the housing market in Southwest Florida is getting better but still under stress I look at the sales data as one part of a bigger picture. And that part has actually been very bright. Some sales increases when shown in percentages during one month for individual counties may look wildly inflated for any number of reasons, including one company making a large sale. But overall the gains in the construction industry are in line with an increase in building permits, Dr. Jackson said. Building contractors were up 26 percent statewide. Construction absolutely is up and permits are up, said Michael Reitmann, vice president of the Lee County Building Industry Association. Some industries, however, lost ground in July. Second-hand stores and antique shops were off in all four counties, as were barber and beauty shops. Veterinary services were off 30 percent in Lee, but up 27 percent in Charlotte and 11 percent in Collier. Interior designers and home improvement businesses saw a spike in sales in the first half of the year. Decorating, painting, papering and drapery installation were up 367 percent in Collier, 43 percent in Charlotte and 4 percent in Lee in July. Thats because more people are fixing up their homes instead of selling at depressed market prices, said Sally Bradley of Bradley Interiors in Naples. The remodel business has really gone through the roof. Food and beverage sales, as well as restaurants, lunchrooms and catering sales, also climbed between roughly 10 percent across all four counties in July. Statewide, food and beverage sales were up from $4.6 to $4.8 billion that month. And in a separate category, restaurant, lunchrooms and catering sales were up from $2.6 to $2.8 billion. During season, from December through April, we have been progressively going up the last three years, said Pam Lemmerman, co-owner of the French Connection Caf in downtown Fort Myers. The first six months of this year were Id say one of our best, at Stump Pass Grille in Englewood, since the intracoastal waterway restaurant opened in 2007, said owner Jeff Neail. It just seemed to be people were starting to spend a little more money. Automotive dealers were up between 4 and 30 percent in July in South Florida counties. Statewide, auto dealers sales were up from $5 to $5.6 billion that month. Don Gasgarth of Don Gasgarth Charlotte County Ford in Port Charlotte reported new car sales at his dealership were up 26 percent through September versus the same nine months last year. Each year has gotten a little better, he said. Boat dealers also generally fared well, up 16 percent in Lee, 38 percent in Collier but off by 40 percent in Charlotte. That number just seems astronomical, said Stan Heywood, manager of Top Notch Marine in Melbourne, of Julys especially large sales increase. Theyre probably close to correct in my pontoon (boat) sales Yes, I believe were back to the output as a company that we were at prior to the recession. And I cant tell you how wonderful that is to see and feel. It finally feels like its over. The financial sector improved. Banking services and insurance companies were up 55 percent in Charlotte County, 65 percent in Collier, but were off by 60 percent in Lee County. Communications sales, including telephone, radio and television stations, were up more than 40 percent in July across Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties. Shoe stores were up 16 percent in Lee and 3 percent in Charlotte, but were off by 10 percent in Collier. Manufacturing sales as a whole in the state were up from $4.3 billion to $4.7 billion in July. Usually when you look at things like durables automobiles, washing machines, appliances those are the things that people can put off, Dr. Jackson said. And when you start seeing those, usually the confidence in the economy is a little better. I think we are seeing some decent sales now. People are feeling a little bit better about the overall economy. Florists were up 439 percent in Lee in July, 18 percent in Charlotte and 23 percent in Collier County. Jessica Gnagey, co-owner of Ruth Messmer Florist in Lee County, said overall her business had an especially slow July and August, not lining up with the states figures. But overall it has improved since dropping 20 percent after the recession. Weve steadily climbed back up to where we were originally at, she said. Our number of orders has come back (to pre-recession levels) but they arent spending the amount of money they used to spend Thats sl owly increasing, too. Admissions, amusement, and recreation services were up 27 percent in Collier County, 8 percent in Charlotte, and about flat in Lee County. We are about $1.1 million ahead in ticket sales from where we were last year, said Ashley Carter with the Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples. Were feeling optimistic. Sales are up across the board. SALESFrom page 1 Collier County Total SalesWe are about $1.1 million ahead in ticket sales from where we were last year.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Years of LettersEach spring, we bring you Warren Buffetts sage thoughts from Berkshire Hathaways annual meeting. There is much more you can learn from him, though, in his annual letters to shareholders, archived at berkshirehathaway.com. Here are a few examples: 1978: We make no attempt to predict how security markets will behave; successfully forecasting short-term stock price movements is something we think neither we nor anyone else can do. 1979: Both our operating and investment experience cause us to conclude that turnarounds seldom turn, and that the same energies and talent are much better employed in a good business purchased at a fair price than in a poor business purchased at a bargain price. 1982: The market, like the Lord, helps those who help themselves. But, unlike the Lord, the market does not forgive those who know not what they do. For the investor, a too-high purchase price for the stock of an excellent company can undo the effects of a subsequent decade of favorable business developments. 1993: The worst of these (arguments for selling a stock) is perhaps, You cant go broke taking a profit. Can you imagine a CEO using this line to urge his board to sell a star subsidiary? 1997: Only those who will be sellers of (stocks) in the near future should be happy at seeing stocks rise. Prospective purchasers should much prefer sinking prices. 2007: A truly great business must have an enduring moat that protects excellent returns. Competitors will repeatedly assault any business castle that is earning high returns. Therefore a formidable barrier such as a companys being the low-cost producer or possessing a powerful worldwide brand is essential for sustained success. 2010: Money will always flow toward opportunity, and there is an abundance of that in America. Commentators today often talk of great uncertainty. But think back, for example, to Dec. 6, 1941, Oct. 18, 1987, and Sept. 10, 2001. No matter how serene today may be, tomorrow is always uncertain. 55 Years YoungSome time ago, my money in a managed brokerage account wasnt doing too badly. When I got divorced, though, I tapped some of it to live on for a while, and I began worrying about the accounts hefty annual fee. An old friend introduced me to her boss at a brokerage, who said that at age 55, I should sell everything and buy investments such as annuities to preserve my assets. I agreed, but soon realized that my money was locked up and I could withdraw only a certain amount annually. Also, I suddenly owed a lot in capital gains taxes. There was time to undo my decision, so I did. Even at 55, I was firing up my career. H.H., via emailThe Fool Responds: Some annuities can serve some folks very well, but learn a lot about them and any other investments before buying. Look closely at fees, restrictions, penalties and limitations on how well they can reward you. At 55, you may have 10 to 20 more working years, and its reasonable to still keep some money in solid stocks. Based in New York City, Im a top global media and entertainment company. My brands include HBO, Cinemax, TNT, TBS, CNN, New Line Cinema, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, People, Sports Illustrated, Cooking Light, InStyle, Real Simple, Fortune and Money. I reach more than 138 million U.S. consumers monthly in print, online and via mobile devices. Ive produced more than 50 TV shows for the upcoming season. You may know me for my busy merger history. My name reflects a big 1990 merger, and in 2000 AOL bought me. (I spun off AOL in 2009.) Who am I? General Mills Does Generally WellWhile many people may know General Mills (NYSE: GIS) for its variety of delicious consumer goods products (Cheerios, Yoplait, Haagen-Dazs and Nature Valley, to name a few), many fail to think of it as a profitable stock. But after good news in its latest earnings report, more people may be paying attention to this oftenoverlooked company. The companys earnings rose an impressive 35 percent over year-ago levels, while revenue advanced 5.3 percent, largely due to higher volume. Sales at the companys international segment grew 27 percent to $1.09 billion, which created an impressive 56 percent boom in that divisions operating profit. General Mills is one of many in the food industry that are struggling with the global market. On one hand, consumers are still very budget-conscious and are focused on getting the most bang for their buck with cheap, bulk foodstuffs. But the drought in the Midwest and rising rawmaterial costs are slashing profit margins and forcing companies to cut back as much as possible. Thats one reason General Mills plans to cut about 2 percent of its workforce in the near future. General Mills has better revenue growth and a larger operating margin than many of its competitors, not to mention a solid dividend yield recently near 3.2 percent. Combined with a decent P/E ratio, it looks like a solid long-term investment. Founded in 1943 and based in Waukegan, Ill., I design, produce and distribute electronic gaming entertainment and gaming machines for the casino industry for example, reel-spinning machines and video lottery terminals. My founder designed the tilt technology for pinball machines, and over time I shifted my focus from pinball machines to gambling machines. Im now involved in global online gambling services as well. My titles include Reel em In!, Life of Luxury, Zeus and Jackpot Party, and a key brand of mine is Bluebird. Ive been developing networked gaming, sensory immersion gaming technologies and more. Who am I? (Answer: WMS Industries) Funds Have Soft and Hard ClosesQIf my brokerage says it cant invest me in a particular mutual fund, am I out of luck? T.H., MinneapolisANot necessarily. Many brokerages let you invest in mutual funds, but they vary widely in the number of funds available and which funds they offer. A brokerage may not offer a fund you want, or it may not be able to get you into it if the fund is closed to new investors. Funds will sometimes close if they have more money than the managers feel they can invest effectively. (Thats a good thing. Other funds just keep taking money, even if they have to park much of it in less promising investments.) Some funds will just do a soft close, though. That means they wont accept new shareholders coming in from third parties such as brokerages, but they will let you invest directly through them, such as via their website. You can invest in most open funds directly, via the fund company itself. It can be a little more convenient through your brokerage sometimes, as youll be able to move money between funds and fund companies more easily though there will likely be a commission fee charged. ***QWhen a stock is reported as having risen or fallen a certain amount, from what price is it up or down? W.R., Spartanburg, S.C.AWhen you hear that shares of Help Depot (ticker: RUOK) are down 3, that means theyre off 3 dollars from where the stock traded at the end of the last trading session. So if RUOK closed at $75 per share yesterday and its trading around $71 right now, its down 3.Got a question for the Fool?

All that mind-numbing fashion advice and those hollow promises that theyve discovered the next miracle product. If I rushed out to buy every hot new cosmetic praised in the pages of Cosmo or Glamour, Id be out enough cash to purchase a small housing development. So when I saw an article about the new red lipsticks for fall, I paged past the story without reading. I like my makeup like I like my clothes: classic nothing flashy, nothing trendy, and certainly nothing red. But I surprised myself recently by buying a pair of red jeans. They fit in all the right places, and the color bold, striking, nothing like what Im used to somehow felt just right. I bought them in a heady fog of shopping euphoria, but when I got home, I realized I had a problem. My usual makeup routine wasnt going to cut it. Neutral lips with those pants? Like wearing flip-flops with a ball gown. I was going to need a new lipstick, the kind the fashion magazines were touting, and I realized that nothing short of fire-engine red would do. I made my way to Sephora, where a salesclerk named Angel took one look at my cherry pants and said, I know just the color. He led me to a display of lip glosses, each one laid out like a fishing lure, and lifted a vial of color that was not so much tomato, not so much maraschino, but positively Serrano spicy and heart-stopping. That one? I said. Are you sure? Angel was already dabbing the applicator on the rim of the tube. Tilt your head back, he said. I did, and when he finished, I looked into the hand mirror he held out for me. Yikes, I said. Thats really red. I started to search for a tissue or cotton ball, something to wipe off the bold color that felt like nothing I would normally wear, but the young woman getting a makeover at the counter beside me looked over and said, Thats really pretty. I stopped reaching for the tissue box. Really? The saleswoman doing the young womans make-up turned. Oh, yes, she said. And it matches your pants. I looked at Angel, an eyebrow raised. Whatd I tell you? he said. Although I was still not convinced, I bought the lipstick and that night gave it a test run at a dinner out with friends. We sat at a table on the sidewalk, and the men who passed by men who would never glance at my au naturel look stopped and stared. Not at my eyes, not at my decolletage, but at my mouth. Several nights after the dinner out, a gentleman picked me up for a date. I wore my new red pants and my flashy hot lips. In the car, he reached over to take my hand. You look nice, he said. Your outfit, your hair, your pretty mouth. My pretty mouth? I caught a flash of myself in the side mirror and laughed. All that red looked nothing like me, but it sure did the trick. artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

The award honors individuals or groups for their contributions to the arts and artistic life in Naples. Mrs. Baker, a Tony Award-winning Broadway producer, graduated summa cum laude in theater and art history at Hunter College in New York. In Naples, she has been involved with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and The Naples Players. She has served on board for The Naples Players and chaired two fundraisers that raised more than $3.5 million for the community theater organization. Seven years ago, she began investing in Broadway and Off-Broadway theater. She is a producer of two new Broadway productions this year, Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf with Tracy Letts and Amy Morgan, and Glengarry Glen Ross with Al Pacino. Past shows include Legally Blonde, The Musical, All My Sons (Katie Holmes first Broadway appearance), Blithe Spirit (for which Angela Lansbury won a Tony Award) and The Mir acle Worker (with Abigail Breslin of Little Miss Sunshine). She says her all-time favorite play is Memphis The Musical, for which she won a 2010 Tony for Best New Musical. Mr. Baker graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylv ania with degrees in marketing and industrial management. As president of Kohls Corp., he helped the company grow from 39 stores in 1986 to more than 600 stores before he retired in 2000. He has served on the boards for NCH Healthcare System and the Philharmonic Center for the Arts and is the current chairman of the board for the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art. He is also chairman of the Jay H. Baker Retailing Center at the Wharton School, which offers degrees in retailing, places students in the industry, and serves as a research center.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 18-24, 2012 life, with the biggest measuring more than 5 five feet tall and 4 feet wide. All the images are hyper-close. We can see every eyelash, every freckle, every pore, every line and wrinkle. They all stare straight ahead, their images so big theyre barely contained by the frames. Everyone is lit the same way; its very democratic, the famed photographer says. My goal when I take one of these portraits is to wait for a moment that feels intimate and more honest than portraits you see in magazines where everyones retouched and its all about clothes and lighting and making them look 10 years younger and 10 pounds lighter. Honest portraits, he says, have gone out of style. Celebrities are heavily controlled by publicists, he explains. Not only the publicist of the person, but also the publicist of the movie or the production house or the record label, so you only see these people (in photos) where they dont look like themselves anymore. People are very guarded especially people in the Western world, and especially people in Hollywood. Theyre very aware of their looks and selfexpression. His goal with his Close Up series, Mr. Schoeller says, is to go behind these expressions and capture the moment when the face hasnt caught up to the next look youre putting on, the next thought. He researches everyone before he shoots their portrait, familiarizing himself with their body of work and their hobbies. Then, while taking their portraits, I talk to my subjects, do an interview of sorts, he says. I find out about their personal life, engage them, get them interested in being there, and capture these in-between moments. He generally shoots 50 to 70 frames and hopes to capture something inbetween, a sense that they havent been posing, putting on some expression, he says. Some people erroneously think he asks his subjects to look serious. Serious is just boring: very stern, wrinkles, furrowing the brow, he says.Capturing a momentPortraits of actors with their guard down give the images a delicious tension between familiarity and unfamiliarity. They might be well-known faces, but were seeing them in a way we havent quite seen them before. Helen Mirren (2009) exudes a severe but elegant beauty, with her gray hair pushed behind her ears. Judi Dench (2007) is unabashedly beautiful, a non-Botoxed, mature woman. Reactions to Mr. Schoellers portraits vary widely, with people calling them everything from intimate to grotesque. Theyve been referred to as grim mug shots and Chuck Close meets your drivers license. Some are upset by the photos and ask Mr. Schoeller, How can you show them like this? They still look pretty good, he says. Meryl Streep she just looks fantastic for her age. Her luminescence transcends in the picture. Some, such as Henry Kissinger, dont fare as well. You can see every wrinkle and age spot, the bags under the eyes. He might not have been very happy with the picture, allows Mr. Schoeller. As a portrait photographer, thats what I took away from Richard Avedon: You shouldnt be concerned about your subject liking the picture or not. Thats not the responsibility of a portrait photographer. It may be the responsibility of a wedding photographer. He recalls that Mr. Kissinger sat for his portrait for three minutes and then wanted to leave. Mr. Schoeller told him, Clinton gave me 20 minutes, and that was while he was president. And he said, Bill Clinton, hes just insecure. These grumpy old men. I thought the portrait was good for him its one of my favorites. Mr. Kissingers portrait hangs at the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art alongside images of Donald Rumsfeld, Sarah Palin and President Clinton, who looks as though hes just about to CLOSE UPFrom page 1 Kanye West Cate Blanchett Cindy Sherman Henry Kissinger Jack Nicholson Robert DeNiro

Other groupings: President Obama next to Sen. John McCain, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie side-by-side. Denzel Washington (2007) looks as if hes amused, while Adrien Brody (2003) looks hangdog, his thin nose veering to his left. In addition to actors, athletes, political figures and singers, there are also portraits of other artists. Cindy Sherman (2000), who has made a career of taking photographs of herself in costume and disguise, is seen unadorned, for herself. And then theres the portrait of performance artist Marina Abramovic (2010). For the entire length of The Artist is Present, her 2010 show at New Yorks Museum of Modern Art, she sat silently in a chair, facing another chair, for more than an accumulated 716 hours. Patrons to the museum would slip into the chair facing her and stare into her face for however long they wanted. Mr. Schoeller also photographed Ms. Abramovic for a New Yorker profile. Because so much of her work is about nudity, he shot her fully dressed in a subway car, surrounded by undressed people who seem totally unaware of their nudity. He says turned to craigslist to find people willing to pose nude, and he shot the picture on a subway at 8 a.m. on a Sunday. Mr. Schoeller and Ms. Abramovic have since become friends, and shes written the introduction to his upcoming book, Identicals, which shows portraits of identical twins, triplets and quadruplets. National Geographic magazine initially sent him to Twinsburg, Ohio, to the Twins Days Festival, the largest gathering of identical twins and multiples. Fascinated by what he saw, he returned a couple times on his own to shoot more portraits. The book is slated for release in November. Hes just returned from three weeks in the Amazon on assignment for National Geographic. Its a dream job for my personality, he says. I am just a very curious person. Photography enables me to go to all these different places and meet different people and have different experiences. The most important quality of a good photographer is curiosity, he says. They have to be curious in many different fields. Someone who wants to know how things work, who looks behind the scenes. Not just seeing the building from the outside, but wanting to see how the people in that building live I think the most important thing is to capture a moment It can be different things. It always has to have something that draws you in, makes you feel: I havent seen this before, this is interesting.About the artist The German-born Mr. Schoeller moved to New York in 1993 and worked as an assistant for photographer Annie Leibovitz from then until 1996. His work appears regularly in magazines such as Time, The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, GQ, Rolling Stone and Esquire. After seeing Bernd and Hilla Bechers series of water tower photographs in 1991, he was inspired to do his series of portraits in the exact same style, he says in his artists statement, adding: The pictures in my Close Up series have all been taken from similar angles and with the same equipment, but here I have tried to bring out personality and capture individuality in a search for a flash of vulnerability and integrity. His book Close Ups, now out of print, contains portraits taken from 1998 through 2005. Hes shot more portraits in the series since then, and hopes to release another Close Up book in three years.

The shows are fresh, exciting, sophisticated and edgy. Even if you live a couple of hours away, its well worth the trip. Not only is the RIAF an opportunity to see performers youd generally never get to see in Florida, but its programming is chockfull of variety, with modern dance troupes, professional avantgarde theater groups and singers from around the world. This years festival presented fewer offerings than previously, due to the fact that Ringling (which puts on the festival in conjunction with the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York) didnt receive any federal or state funds for the event. So it pared down the offerings and padded the festival with movies about the arts. But still, a scaled-down version of RIAF is undeniably spectacular and worthy of praise. In previous years, Id go to Sarasota for the day and attend as many as four programs. This year I attended two, but also made a trip to some of the Ringling museum galleries. The museums Deco Japan: Shaping Art and Culture 1920-1945 exhibit, with almost 200 works from The Levenson Collection, the worlds premiere collection of Japanese art in the Deco style, displays jewelry, ceramics, metalwork, textiles, wood furniture, design and prints from the era. From kimonos to advertising posters, the Japanese expression of Art Deco captivated me. You could devote an entire afternoon to the exhibit; it runs through Oct. 28. I also took a look at the New Acquisitions exhibit, which has an openended run. We think of our collections as living organisms, a museum placard states. For the Museum to remain a vital part of the community, its collections must grow and evolve to serve its audiences. The exhibit is a hodge-podge, which is part of its charm. The newly acquired works include contemporary painting and sculpture, glass, photography, circus items and objects previously owned by Mable Ringling. The latter includes a silver wig with braided side buns and a fan-shaped comb. The circus artifacts include Jimmy Jamess ringmaster top hat (red, crowned with sequins) and his whistle, complete with silk cord. Also in the exhibit: Great American Nude #74, a gripflex on molded plastic by Tom Wesselmann, and Sharon, a lithograph woodcut on paper by Alex Katz. The museum has also acquired a number of pieces from recent shows. I saw at least two from the Beyond Bling exhibit that highlighted art inspired by hip hop: Gajin Fujitas Sky High and Aint I A Woman (Sandra), a multi-media piece by Mickalene Thomas. The first piece incorporates graffiti with traditional Asian art. Ms. Thomas piece is a portrait of her mother, using rhinestones, acrylic and enamel, while an accompanying video screen continually plays a DVD of the subject vamping to an Eartha Kitt song. The museum, which held a oneman show by Swiss artist Zimoun last year, has purchased his 75 prepared dc motors, filler wire 1.0 mm (20092010). The kinetic sculpture features a line of 175 tiny motors turning thin wires hanging from them. The scraping sound they make as the wires hit the wall sounds like the soft patter of raindrops; their continual movement has also created an almost charcoal-like line on the wall at the bottom of the piece.RIAF performances In the historic Asolo Theatre, I saw Shantala Shivalingappa perform an hour-long program of traditional Indian dance. Born in India and raised in Paris, Ms. Shivalingappa dances in the classical Southern Indian tradition of third century B.C. Kuchipudi. Last October, she performed in New York; the New York Times not only starred her dance performances and pronounced them dont miss events, but also devoted almost a quarter page to her in the Friday arts calendar section. Ms. Shivalingappa was accompanied by four musicians sitting cross-legged stage right. Her dance was percussive, her ankle bells jingling with every step, hop, stomp and jump. The dancer and musicians created complex polyrhythms with feet and hands. Her movements were both lyrical and angular. In Talamelam, the four musicians, particularly the two percussionists, had a dialogue with vocal and drumming calland-response. Eventually, Ms. Shivalingappa joined in the musical conversation, concluding with a dance on a brass plate that she manipulated around the stage while standing on it. She told stories with her hands, her body. The performance was mesmerizing, hypnotic. Simply magical. Prior to Phyllis Chens toy piano concert, I experienced James Turrell Josephs Coat museum installation in action. The work is an internal courtyard, with a 24-foot square aperture in the ceiling. At sunset, for approximately 45 minutes, an unseen system of LED lights work to change the color of the space. This is not a light show or a laser light show, or like anything else Ive ever seen. The colors change subtly. Its like seeing a living, slowly changing Josef Albers or Mark Rothko painting. The sky itself changes from peacock blue to a putty gray to brown to black, while the space around it changes color as well. Its like a wordless lecture on color field theory, and how color affects the color next to it. Ms. Chen, a classically trained pianist from New York performed a number of compositions on her red, three-octave Schoenhut toy piano. It was truly a baby baby grand piano. As Ms. Chen has described, the toy piano sounds like many different things, but not quite like any of them. At times during the performance it made me think of a music box, a harpsichord, a glockenspiel and bells. Depending upon the piece, the music varied from melodic to discordant. Double Helix and Hallucinate, composed by Ms. Chen, incorporated a set of eight mixing bowls that she struck with a timpani mallet while playing the toy piano with her right hand. Fur Enola, composed by James Joslin, incorporated a jack-ina-box and a spinning top, which spun on top of the toy piano, then jumped to the floor. Toy Toccata by Fabian Swensson had Ms. Chen playing only white keys with her right hand and black keys with her left. Carousels, which Ms. Chen also composed, incorporated running a strip of paper through a handcranked music box while also playing the keyboards. (The paper worked in the same way hole-punched scrolls did for player pianos.) When the strip of paper had made its way through the music box, Ms. Chen then took the paper and ran it through again, this time upside down. The work was challenging, adventurous. One of my favorites was Little Things, composed by Angelica Negron, which included toy instruments, such as a melodeon, electronics, pre-recorded tape, and sounds which Ms. Chen would record while playing, then play back in a loop. There were staccato bursts of sound, as if she were sending out a musical message in Morse code to the universe, and otherworldly singing. The composition built up, layer by layer. Ms. Chen also performed John Cages melodic Suite for Toy Piano, which he composed in 1948; its recognized as the first composition written for toy piano. (Its amazing to consider that the piece consists of only nine notes.) It was nice to see the nod to Mr. Cage. Ms. Chen is the founder of the UnCaged Toy Piano composition competition and the UnCaged Toy Piano Festival. The evening presented a full program of music for the instrument, from Mr. Cages seminal composition to Ms. Chen and others more recent experimentations. It was an odd, whimsical and entertaining concert. I had a strong feeling John Cage would have loved it. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 18-24, 2012 C9 Coury, Gulfshore Playhouses founding producing artistic director, says about the seasons openers. She sits in a conference room at The Norris Center, steps away from the stage in one direction and her office in another, and reflects on how far the company has come in a few short years. It was just me, myself and I, she says about the companys early days, when she ran things out of her home office and staged performances at Gulf Coast High School. Nothing got done unless I personally did it, she adds. I was up all night doing whatever needed to be done. I could do only two plays a year. Now, she has help a cast of thousands, she laughs. Well, not quite thousands, but a staff of 16. She recently hired Cody Nickell as artistic associate. He directs God of Carnage and acts in Art. Hell also perform in The Whipping Man, a Civil War era drama that opens March 24. With the new season, Ms. Coury believes Gulfshore Playhouse is once again offering the type of professional theater that has fueled its growth. Season at a glanceMs. Rezas Art is set in Paris and tells the story of three friends, one of whom, Serge, pays a lot of money for a large white painting. Mr. Nickell, who is Marc in the production, says his character cant believe his friend shelled out an enormous sum for what Marc views as little more than a white piece of canvas. Marc hates the white painting, loathes the white painting, Mr. Nickell says. Why does Marc hate it so much? I think he doesnt know why he has such a visceral reaction to it, Mr. Nickell says. The American version of God of Carnage is set in Brooklyn. The story centers on two sets of parents whose children get in a playground spat. When the adults meet to discuss the incident, All hell breaks out, Ms. Coury says. Third up in the season will be I Am My Own Wife. The title might sound like a light-hearted spoof, but the play is anything but. Its the story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a German man, and his astounding story of survival. He somehow survived both the Nazi regime and the communist dictatorship that ruled what was then East Germany in the decades following World War II. Thats not all. He was a cross-dressing museum director and antiquarian who was born Lothar Berfelde. The seasons fourth show is that perennial Oscar Wilde favorite from the 1890s, The Importance of Being Earnest. It still works and is still funny all these years later. Up next, after one of the most enduring comedies in theater history, Gulfshore Playhouse presents The Whipping Man, a Matthew Lopez play set in 1865. The story revolves around a Jewish Confederate soldier and slave-owner who returns home to Richmond, Va., after the war. His two grown slaves, who were raised Jewish, are now freedmen. Its Passover and a time of huge adjustment for both the former master and the former slaves. Together, they have a Seder dinner to mark the holiday. A New York Times review noted of Mr. Lopez: We are in the hands of a playwright who wants to mess with our viscera. Ms. Coury attended a performance of the play at the Arden Theater in Philadelphia, where Mr. Nickell played the slave owner. He will reprise that role in The Whipping Man at Gulfshore Playhouse. The 2012-13 season also marks the first that Gulfshore Playhouse has had a working relationship with the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. The seasons last show, Master Class, will be staged in the Daniels Pavilion at the Phil.

>> Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2) was originally cast as Charlie. NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 18-24, 2012 C11 Is it worth $10? YesOf the numerous ways people are killed in Seven Psychopaths, its important to remember that much of it happens because of a dog. An exceptionally cute shih tzu that has its own Facebook page, to be exact, but a dog nonetheless. Surely people have died for lesser reasons, but what this does is cast a sense of triviality over the story. None of this NEEDS to be happening, we feel, and if it doesnt need to be happening, then why are we watching? Because its darn entertaining, thats why. Writer/director Martin McDonaghs (In Bruges) film isnt nearly as smart or clever as it thinks it is, but it remains an entertaining, pulpy yarn that has some genuine surprises. At the center of the story are alcoholic screenwriter Marty (Colin Farrell) and his dog-kidnapping friend Billy (Sam Rockwell, typically unhinged and very funny). Marty is struggling to start a screenplay hes calling Seven Psychopaths. Billy works with partner Hans (Christopher Walken) to kidnap wealthy peoples dogs then return them a few days later to collect the reward money. Billy and Hans get themselves into trouble when they dognap Bonny, a shih tzu owned by a gangster named Charlie (Woody Harrelson). Meanwhile, the story takes random detours to showcase each of the seven psychopaths of the title, some of whom are crazy beyond belief, while others take you by surprise. The movie has a self-awareness that doesnt always work, specifically because the Seven Psychopaths screenplay Marty is writing doesnt always mesh with the Seven Psychopaths movie were watching. For a long time were left to wonder what psychopaths No. 2, 4, 5 and 6 have to do with anything, only to have them tied together in an ending thats too far-fetched to be believed. And thats the big rub: The movie thinks its brilliant in a meta mind-trip sort of way, but its really only a lush piece of flashy entertainment. For example, there are numerous attempts to tie characters reflecting about the past into real historical events, such as the My Lai Massacre in Vietnam in 1968. But why? The rest of the story isnt grounded in reality, so theres no point in having a real-world connection. Doing so suggests the film should be taken with a level of seriousness, but thats basically impossible when the rest of it is so comic book silly. Seven Psychopaths is a strange picture with some crazy ideas, some of which are intriguing while others are just plain weird. If McDonagh is trying to make a social comment about the futility of violence or something similar, he failed to capture the proper tone that would allow that to be communicated. Still, his dialog is witty and clever, which leads to some funny exchanges and moments of violence that keep you on your toes (including the greatest head explosion youll ever see). Far too often we criticize movies for not trying to do more. McDonagh tried to do too much and misfired. There are worse things you could say.

A drama about a pair of rivals and former lovers who use sex to humiliate and destroy others, the play is based on a novel by Choderlos de Laclos that was published in 1782 six years before the French Revolution. Its stage debut in 1985 won the Olivier Award. The film adaptation won three Academy Awards. Paul Graffy, director of The Naples Players production, sees the theme of cruelty as sport as one thats not unique to any period in history. With the benefit of hindsight, its easy to witness that as many societies evolve, the polarities between the haves and have-nots widen, and political revolutions arise, Mr. Graffy says. In our production, we present the artifice that defined late 18th century France and strive to expose what lies beneath that artifice. We also look to explore the timelessness of these abhorrent behaviors in an effort to recognize, albeit sadly, how little the world changes, he adds. The cast include Sarah Dickerson as Cecile, Victoria Diebler as Emilie, Carole Fenstermacher as Rosemonde, Kathleen Gravatt as Merteuil, Carol Fox as Volange, Laura Needle as Tourvel, Joseph Lang as Danceny, John Moga as Azalon and Mark Vanagas as Valmont. Les Liaisons Dangereuses contains themes of a sexual nature and brief nudity. It is suggested for mature audiences. Show times are 8 p.m. WednesdaySaturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24-Nov. 17.

Most furniture is made to fit in almost any room, but sometimes furniture is made to fit the room to look as if its built into a wall. Today we install builtin kitchen cupboards, bookshelves and perhaps a niche for ornaments. In the 18th and 19th centuries, corner cupboards, dressers and other large storage pieces may not have been built-in, but they were made for just one spot in the house. Two matching mahogany, fitted pedestal bookcases sold in 2012 were each 7 feet 7 inches tall and 17 inches wide. The shelves were only 13 inches deep, the depth of most bookshelves today. The tall and thin column-like bookcases have glass doors and a carved ornament at the top. The pair was probably made to be placed on either side of a doorway. They mimic the door-frame trim popular in expensive houses at the beginning of the 1900s, the English Edwardian period. The shape is uncommon, so this pair was probably a special order. The pair sold at a Neal Auction in New Orleans for $2,988.Q: I bought a Lady figurine from Lady and the Tramp for 99 cents. Its porcelain, about 4 inches tall and marked Disney, Japan with a copyright symbol. Did I pay too much? A: Lady and the Tramp, Disneys animated romance about a purebred cocker spaniel and a mutt, was released in 1955the same year Disneyland opened in Southern California. The opening of the theme park ignited even more demand for Disney figurines. At about this time, Disney started to have some figures made in Japan. Lady figurines like yours sell for about $10 online, so you paid a bargain price.Q: Back in the 1970s, my mothers friend gave her a desk with a pull-down door that serves as a writing surface.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 18-24, 2012 C15 COURTESY PHOTO These two tall, narrow pieces of mahogany furniture are bookshelves. They would almost touch the ceiling in a traditional house today. Unusual furniture is sometimes hard to sell, but this pair sold at a Neal Auction in New Orleans for close to $3,000.production until about 1956. It was also made in light green and light blue. We have seen your jar selling online for $155.Q: My very shiny hammered aluminum platter is 16 inches in diameter and looks like it is made of silver. It has four eggshaped indentations that could hold a small ostrich egg. The bowl-like center is set with multicolored tiles held in place by rivets. On the bottom is a triangular mark made up of the words Cellini Craft, Argental, Handwrought. In the center of the triangle are the letters MW. How old is it and what was it used for? Some auctions describe similar dishes as trays, but I think there must be a reason for the tiles and the indentations.A: Cellini Craft made aluminum serving pieces from 1934 to 1966. Argental translates to silver-like. The aluminum was hand-hammered. We have looked at hundreds of aluminum trays and have found no catalog that explains a platter like yours. It is listed in catalogs as either a tray or an undertray. An undertray held a glass or covered aluminum bowl that could have served soup, stew or some other juicy food. The indentations may have been designed to catch drippings. Only one or two other aluminum manufacturers made trays that included a ceramic piece in the center. It may have kept the tray from getting too hot or it may just have been a decoration. Aluminum regained popularity for a brief time in the 1990s. Prices went up as collectors searched for wares from the 1950s and s. Trays the size of yours with a tile insert retail for $150 to $350, even though most hammered aluminum has dropped in price during the past 15 years. Tip: Almost all Grueby pottery is expensive today, but some pieces have rare features that add to the price. Applied handles or added tendrils increase value. So does extra color added to the floral design on a vase. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

The Old HouseBY GEORGE COOK, FORT MYERS The old house on the hill, up, up a stone staircase through overgrown Catskill trees and bushes, always damp in the summer shade, and slippery with rotted moss slicked by boys feet running, grandmother calling... a small slice of steps in the winter snow, iced, boys feet sliding, grandmother calling. Cellar stairs off the kitchen concrete, formed into the foundation, a single light at the bottom showing the way to the coal furnace, lined with wood shelves of canning jars filled with a winter of vegetables. Grandmother knows every jar without labels. At the top of the carpeted stairs to the second floor a crowded hall were startled to see our grandmother too early with her hair down and no glasses... Gramma needs to use the bathroom. You boys want breakfast with Pop? He ... Pop, Poppy ... he was at the bottom of the stairs, across a small landing, to the right two steps and he was at the kitchen table. Waiting. Smoking. A small landing with its own window and two steps the other way down to a parlor, opened years before to the living room. The bare wood stairs to the attic through a bedroom closet where boys slept on cots with chamber pots slid under, on your knees to pee in the dark, and please dont miss, and dont stand up too soon and bump your buzzed head on the sloped ceiling. Drumming against the porcelain bowl, laughing. The only light at the top of the narrow stair, a bulb, a little chain tied to a string strung across the rafters, down the stairwell, and first daylight through a window at each end in its webby, dead fly dormer. HomecomingBY SUSANA GONZALEZ ODIZZIO, LEHIGH ACRES The old house has always had an aura of mystery, no one knew if the stories being spread around the town of Atkins were real, or if they were part of a legend that grew onto the walls like ivy, tenacious and persistent. After the girls died, the house was closed, with the valuable Victorian furniture hidden under white sheets, waiting in vain for the return of splendors already gone. When I got home and put the key in the door, a shiver shook me and almost made me fall, yet all seemed quiet, the magnificent garden continued to flourish under the watchful eye of Walter, the gardener, who had devoted his life to it. The cellar, with its magnificent wines intact, still resting in the shadows. Only one path remained abandoned, the stairs to the rose garden, gray and worn, the palm trees and the hill were neglected, and seemed not to belong to the mansion. I stopped several times as I climbed the worn steps, I watched the girls as they played under the beautiful rose canopy, one by one I named them and they appeared, smiling among the scents of the flowers. Only I could see them through time, intact, intangible, eternal. On the top of the stairs, Walter waited for me as he always had, his eyes, now dull, stared at the 30-year-old void in my own eyes. I refused to listen when he begged me not to go through with it, but it was too late, the poison was ready by morning, especially effective against an abusive husband, who would be silent forever after one last glass of wine. The girls, who liked to rummage through my perfumes, mistook the poison for another of my flower tonics. One by one, they fell onto the stairs. When I returned after so many years,the memories creeped downstairs and hid behind the walls of the old Victorian house, along with the specter of my past.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews:Agave Southwestern Grill, 2380 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 598-3473 A blend of Northern Mexican and American Southwestern cuisines, Agave is a great concept executed with panache. The restaurant pays tribute to the agave plant with 200 varieties of tequila, which can be ordered in flights so you can compare; for those less inclined to take it straight there are delicious fruit-andherb-infused margaritas. Tortillas are pressed in house, and sumptuous guacamole is turned out tableside with your choice of ingredients such as roasted garlic, queso fresco and bacon. From a quickly marinated seafood ceviche to a slowly simmered poblano mole, dishes highlight flavorful ingredients and skillful cooking while never sacrificing authenticity. We only scratched the surface of the far-reaching menu and eagerly await a chance to return. Reservations are strongly recommended. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2011Caf 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 manages to create 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, though it will come at a price. ($14.50 for a single crab cake?) 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). Even side dishes a mlange of English peas, sugar snap peas and fresh fava beans sauted in b utter f or us will delight. Just be sure to save room for the signature cinnamon-sugar doughnuts or fried huckleberry pie. Dessert is not to be missed. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2011Coast, Edgewater Beach Hotel, 1901 Gulf Shore Blvd. N., Naples; 403-2181 This chic, modern restaurant serves internationally inspired cuisine to hotel guests as well as visitors lucky enough to find the Edgewater. Coast has a sleek, sophisticated lounge vibe: black leather chairs, white linen tablecloths, shiny wooden floors, a dramatic cluster of red and gold pendant lights hanging under a huge, black ceiling medallion. Modern couches for cocktail hour edge the dining space, which is really just an extension of the lobby with chillout music providing a hip backdrop. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the palm-lined courtyard, swimming pools and the gulf beach just beyond. But Coast has substance as well as style. In just nine dishes, the entre list ranges from the simple, family-friendly appeal of a burger with sea salt fries to the hearty comfort of a roasted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and leeks to the upmarket sophistication of beef tenderloin medallions with red wine demiglace. Coastal comfort dishes such as shrimp and grits are as dazzling as globespanning creations like Moroccan-spiced lamb meatballs and diver scallops with an Asian flair. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2012 Figs Grille, 25987 Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700 Sam Tadros, the chef behind the popular Sam-Bucco Bistro in North Naples, has another winning concept with this exploration of the cuisines of Turkey, Spain, Morocco, Lebanon and France. Egyptian tapestries adorn the walls in the garnet and gold dining room. Ceiling lamps evoke Morocco and ethnic music plays softly in the background, but the effect is understated. Whichever country you decide to visit for your main course, your meal should begin with the mezze platter of hummus and baba ganoush as well as charry and sweet grilled eggplant chunks and cucumber salad served with lightly pickled vegetables. You cant go wrong with one of several Turkish kebabs or with the filet medallions with grilled shrimp, garnished lavishly with caramelized onions, port wine sauce and fig chutney. Lush (chocolate marquise) or light (lemon semifreddo), dessert shouldnt be missed either. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2011Michelbobs Champion Ribs, 371 Airport Pulling Road, Naples; 643-7427 Michelbobs signature spice rub enhances its slow-smoked Danish baby backs, a mustard and paprika blend presented in shakers on every table just in case you want an extra punch of flavor. There are also two bottled sauces to slather on the meaty bones one tangy with mustard (complex and well balanced) and one smoky-sweet (tasting heavily of Liquid Smoke). All of which is enough to satisfy anyone with a serious hankering for good ribs (the smoked pork shoulder and chicken werent as good). When all was said and done, the baby backs truly stood out from the rest of the meal. The flesh was tender enough to slip off easily and had those crispy edges that just add a little extra texture to the experience. The barbecued chicken had rubbery skin and lacked much in the way of seasoning. A smoked pork dinner had an ample stack of sliced meat, but it leaned toward the dry side. Among the side dishes, the smoky-sweet baked beans studded with chunks of pork were a real standout. Full bar.

Set back a bit from the highway, its in the Island Park area in a space previously occupied by an all-you-can-eat pizza joint, among other things. La Fogata the bonfire has gained space and some visibility in its new home, but it was disturbingly light on customers when I visited last Friday evening. Perhaps its the last of the summer doldrums and the fact that our winter residents havent yet arrived. Or it might be that the sign over its door isnt all that visible once the sun sets. All I can tell you is that its worth finding for its authentic Mexican food that bears very little resemblance to the cheese-and refried-bean-laden fare that is Tex-Mex, a cuisine frequently mistaken for the more refined dishes served up by our neighbors to the south. The dining room is roomy, with tables set well apart. Simple burlap overlaid with clear plastic serves as table covers. On the walls is a profusion of framed Mexican art, most of which is for sale. Colorful lizards and clusters of red chili peppers adorn a brick wall behind a long bar that once served as the buffet line for the defunct pizza restaurant. Its not fancy but the ambience gives it a cheerful feel and its spotlessly clean, to boot. As for the menu, there will be some familiar fare, such as guacamole, enchiladas and tacos, but La Fogatas versions are likely to be revelations to those weaned on the usual Tex-Mex suspects. I highly recommend starting with the guacamole ($5.99), which consists of big chunks of velvety ripe avocado studded with onions, cilantro, chiles and tomatoes and brightened up by a generous spritz of lime juice. Try it without the three salsas that come with the large bowl of tortilla chips, then try the various combinations. One salsa is a mild but tasty tomatillo variety, the other two are hot and hotter, but all three add interesting layers of flavor to the guacamole. One bowl is enough for two to share as an appetizer, since the entrees are good sized. Among the options you dont often see are grilled rabbit and grilled quail and a side dish of cactus that accompanies a couple of entrees. I feel in love with mole (that's MOlay, not the rodent) while in Oaxaca some years ago and have searched ever since for a restaurant that can conjure up this wondrous sauce consisting of spices, chiles, chocolate and who-knowswhat. The result is a rich, dark brown sauce thats heavenly when applied to chicken or enchiladas or, I suspect, just about anything else. La Fogatas version of mole poblano ($10.99) had a slightly bitter aftertaste but was otherwise good on pieces of fork-tender chicken and rice. Refried black beans were well seasoned and not at all mushy, but might better have been served in a separate dish given the darkness of the mole, which oozed all over the plate. The fresh warm corn tortillas that came with this dish were handy for scooping up chicken and sauce. The tostadas with shrimp ($10.99) looked like three colorful flowers on the plate. They began with fried corn tortillas that were topped with beans, lettuce, shrimp, sour cream, queso fresco, tomato and avocado. Every ingredient tasted fresh. and the combination of textures was delightful. Desserts are minimal at La Fogata, which doesnt surprise me. After guacamole and a full entree, theres not much room left for sweets so they dont stock a lot of them. We split a wedge of light, spongy flan ($2.99) that had a piece of dried plum (aka prune) in it. It was lighter than most flans, but provided a refreshing end to the meal. I had ordered a horchata ($2.59) to drink with my meal that apparently was forgotten when another table needed attention, but our gracious server brought one to me with dessert. She apologized and gave it to me on the house to make up for the oversight. It was delicious a light blend of rice, milk, cinnamon and vanilla on ice. Its a particularly good beverage to accompany the spicier dishes on the menu. Its hard to say how service is when the place is crowded. but the two women who took care of us were warm and accommodating. Courses came swiftly, but not until we were ready for them and our used dishes had been cleared. When youre looking for made-fromscratch comfort food, hospitable service and low prices, give La Fogata a try. Its what Mexican food should be.
