ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLY PHOTO ILLUSTRATION Were in the middle of the football season, which may or may not be fitting when Florida voters take a gander at their ballots for the upcoming election. There are 11 count em 11! proposed amendments to the state constitution on the ballot. Thats enough proposals to field a football team. The amendments may provide more information than voters can tackle when theyre also voting on president, United States senator, congressman, county commissioner and the mosquito and hospital control boards and more.Florida Weekly is offering a handy guide to the amendments. Unlike in football, we offer no point spreads or predictions, just information in a form that, we hope, is far less painful than getting blocked by a 330pound lineman. When voters glance at the ballots its likely many will notice that the last one is No. 12. Didnt those folks at Florida Weekly say there were 11 proposed amendments? Yes, we did. There was a No. 7 on the original list but a circuit judge took it off the ballot and it was re-written and became No. 8 on the list. So, voters will vote on 11 amendments, numbered 1 through 6 and then 8 through 12. There is no No. 7. Voters are asked to vote yes or no. Amendments require 60 percent of the voters voting yes to pass. That doesnt mean 60 percent of the total of those casting ballots for president or senator orA football fans simple guide for voting on amendments BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly Correspondent AT THE DAWN OF THIS CENTURY, MY friend Matt was working third shift, driving a beater van around downtown Milwaukee in the middle of the night, loading vending boxes with stacks of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

And its so noisy and self-important that you cant not look at it, especially on that most American of moments: the day we pick a president.It all started in 1789 on the first Wednesday in January when George Washington ran unopposed as a reluctant candidate who had to be talked into elected office by his pals. Ever since, American democracy has been tough to figure. It consistently surprises even Americans themselves by its paradoxical display of self-control and ridiculous excess. Simultaneously, it confuses our friends and mystifies our enemies, who see it as an absurd circus of the weak, the wealthy and the misguided.And now for the main event, ladies and gentlemen, traveling all the way from its recent tour of European culture and coming directly to you from July 4, 1776: A nation of 310 million oddballs goes to the polls! Give them a hand, please, as they elect a president and vice president before your very eyes, along with senators, representatives and other political aspirants and all without firing a shot!How do we manage such an act so peacefully?Weve designed it much like the thundering engines that used to come out of Detroit, the fuel-guzzling monsters encased in gleaming steel bodies painted neon red or cobalt blue or obsidian black. Those muscle cars came with names seemingly conceived by fighter pilots or condom makers: the Boss 429 Mustang. The Barracuda. The ZL1 Camaro, with 500 horses under the hood. The Shelby Cobra 427. The 454 Chevelle Super Sport. Like our system of government, such machines were feverish androgenic dreams made real, vehicles that suddenly rumbled across the culture and its roads like runaway bulls. And they still do, but with some design modifications. Our election design has changed, too, and so have the bumps in the road. In Washingtons day and for decades after, only white men who owned property could vote. In 1800, the House of Representatives voted 19 times to break a tie between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, before somebody finally relented and Jefferson was elected president. That contest marked the first time power passed peacefully from one party to another. When Andrew Jackson won the White House in 1828, he threw a hard-cider soiree to celebrate the popular man. Many popular men got drunk that day, kicked around in their muddy boots, stood on chairs and destroyed the furnishings, carrying some away in the process. Martin Van Burens running mate and subsequent vice president in 1836, 19 years before the Civil War, was Col. Richard M. Johnson, who was said to have killed the Shawnee Indian Chief Tecumseh. White Col. Johnson lived openly and unapologetically with black Julia Chinn, a woman he considered his commonlaw wife. They gave their two daughters his name and irritated the bejesus out of many voters. After President Van Buren dropped the colonel from his ticket in the race to win a second term, he lost the election. Several of our presidents were assassinated in office, beginning with Lincoln on April 14, 1865. So we shifted up through second, third and fourth gears. Voters, who finally included women beginning in 1920, could choose between two candidates, or sometimes three or four. Presidents served one term or two terms or in a single instance, four terms: Franklin D. Roosevelt spent 15 years in the White House, dying near the end of World War II. Almost to the day, that was 80 years after Lincolns death. Some Americans lived to witness both. On four presidential election days, the man who won the most votes lost the presidency because he finished second in the electoral college, where each state gets two votes for its U.S. Senators, and as many more as it has U.S. Representatives: in 1824, in 1876, in 1888 and in 2000. Candidates who win the popular majority in any state, even by one vote, rake in all the states electoral votes (29 now, in Florida). On the last occasion 12 years ago, George W. Bush lost the nations popular vote to Al Gore by more than 500,000, but won the electoral college and thus the presidency by capturing 527 more popular votes than Mr. Gore here in the Sunshine State. That happened after Palm Beach Countys butterfly ballot confused several thousand voters, many of them older, who said they intended to vote for Mr. Gore but accidentally picked the other candidate. In the end, the Supreme Court invalidated a recount and the country got Mr. Bush and his vice president, Dick Cheney, along with the war in Iraq and a broken economy. But so what? Thats a muscle car for you: the engine throws a rod, a tire blows, the fan-belt breaks, a chad hangs, something else happens. Its quirky. Muscle cars can be fixed, though. Presidents and presidential visions can be replaced. This week, we have two distinct visions and two distinct candidates, so choose your muscle car accordingly. Both will protect and defend the country, both understand that robust markets will benefit everybody, and either would benefit from the clearly recovering economy. If you like very wealthy men who support all the key interests of other very wealthy men because their successes trickle down to us, pick the challenger. If you like very wealthy men who demand more of other very wealthy men and women, and require government to help fuel growth and maintain safety nets for societys most vulnerable, pick the incumbent. Neither man nor his party is perfect. The 42 other presidents who came before them werent perfect, either. Again, so what? Stand proud. By voting for winner or loser, either one, you make the bold, brash American democracy a better machine. Im here to tell you, this high-horsepower honey has some juice. This big-boned baby can move. And thats exactly what its going to do for the next four years. e f s o n o rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARY

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 1-7, 2012 METAJOURNALISMCan a local Democrat win a seat in the House? Meta: the prefix metais used to mean about (its own category)It was a few months ago, while watching Jim Roach demonstrate to me how he manually stamped out his own campaign b uttons, that I had to surpress a wince. I was hit with an epiphany: No matter how elegant his ideas about health care, the nations finances or harmonious living, he cant win. Stamping his own buttons? He needed to be out there getting people to sign big checks. Thats how campaigns are won. And thats the only way a Democratic campaign in Southwest Florida, where Republicans hold all the major offices, can be won. The race for the District 19 seat in the U.S. House is a big-money contest. Republicans and their PACs spent millions on the primary in August. Trey Radel, the ebullient former radio talk-show host who became the Republican anointed in the primary to take the seat, raised half a million alone. Thats not to mention the money that PACs spent on the race. The $80,000 raised by Roachs campaign is like punching ones own buttons small-time politics. The national Democratic party has forsaken the local race, not spending a penny to promote Roachs cause. Its all indicative of the dismal state of local Democrats. It cheats the public out of choices and it cheats the press out of being able to cover a real contest. Roach disagrees with me about the buttons and about his chances of winning. His campaign recently did some polling, he tells me. Twenty-five percent of a primarily Republican group responded negatively to Radel, says Roach. And so, the campaign isnt futile. About the buttons, he told me that day that I photographed him for our cover story Underdog (Aug. 29): making them himself demonstrated his fiscal restraint and his ability to keep to a budget. I couldnt help but squirm like I do every time I see that video of Michael Dukakis riding around in that tank with his potato-head bobbing under an Army helmet. Its a PR image meant to convey strength, but then ends up sending the wrong message. When Roger Williams wrote Underdog, he ignored my editorial direction. I wanted Roger to devote several hundred words of that cover story explaining why Democrats just couldnt seem to get their act together in Southwest Florida. But when he asked them why, they simply denied the assumption itself. Local Democrats have long behaved like Peter before the crucifixion denying their affiliations to save their own skins. Frank Mann, Tammy Hall and Bruce Strayhorn were all Democrats once. (At least Strayhorn switched parties for the love of a beautiful woman apparently, rather than the droll business of politics.) Roger, more the gentleman than I, focused instead on Roach the man, the engineer, the thoughtful war hero. It was an attempt to balance Florida Weeklys fawning coverage of the Tea Party and conservatives in previous editions. It was a way for us to offer a fighting chance to someone with an opposing view. To be sure, Roach should be applauded for his tireless efforts reaching out to local business groups and conservative clubs, extending a hand and having civilized discussions with folks who appear to have divergent views. Its more than Congress has been able to do. Perhaps Roach and his pollsters will prove me wrong and somehow pull out a victory. Anything is possible, of course, but even Roach supporters concede privately that a victory would be a miracle. The next Democrat to win in Southwest Florida will have to be force; a cult of local personality, someone who can tap the local zeitgeist, someone who can inspire legions to wave signs at every major intersection and who can raise enough funds to blanket the airwaves. The local Democrats need a winner. They need someone like Trey Radel. Osvaldo Padilla is the managing editor at Florida Weekly. richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINIONSchools for contraception p c r R d osvaldoPADILLAopadilla@floridaweekly.com New York Citys public schools do a poor job educating kids. In fairness, though, thats not their expertise. What they excel at is giving out contraceptives. If there were international comparisons of contraception access at schools, instead of math and reading scores, Singapore would have to look in envy at the achievements of New York City and wonder: What can we do to catch up? New Yorks schools are outdoing themselves with their latest pedagogical initiative, the Orwellian-named CATCH program, for Connecting Adolescents to Comprehensive Health. Comprehensive health, of course, means only one particular kind of health, the equally euphemistic reproductive health. The schools already provide free condoms. Soon enough, the mere distribution of condoms will seem the hallmark of a bygone, more innocent era, like something from the plot of a Happy Days episode. The program to give out morningafter pills and other oral and injected contraceptives is now up and running in 13 schools. Parents have to explicitly choose to opt out of the program, which, as any behavioral economist will tell you, strongly tips the balance toward its passive acceptance. The morning-after pill, or Plan B, is a contraceptive, but it is possible although disputed that it acts like an abortifacient as well. Its distribution is another step down the slippery slope toward the provision of abortion in the schools. If that sounds outlandish, just wait. There can be no doubt the direction that the Big Apples latitudinarian educrats want to go. According to Greg Pfundstein of the pro-life Chiaroscuro Foundation, one of the homework exercises in a proposed New York City sex-education curriculum that became controversial last year included a visit or a call to a clinic to find out its hours, what services it provides and its confidentiality policy. It can be harder to get an aspirin in some schools around the country than it is now to get Plan B in New York. The schools can give a synthetic female hormone to a girl as young as 14 without so much as a text message to her mom. Such is the perverse value system of New Yorks nanny state that the program ran with no notice to the public ho-hum until the New York Post broke the story. Surely, many parents of the kids in the affected schools arent involved enough in their childrens lives, and the schools cant substitute for the discipline and values that kids arent getting at home. But that doesnt mean schools should keep from parents that their daughters are having unprotected sex and might be pregnant. They shouldnt be the friend and the enabler of the sexually active teenager, either. The schools should do everything they can to create an environment of rigor, with an overwhelming emphasis on future-oriented behavior. Instead, the New York City schools operate on the same mores as a Planned Parenthood clinic. Parents are a nuisance. No questions are asked. And teenage sex, which is inherently casual sex, is implicitly encouraged. But dont worry. It will only get worse. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

But weve seen a welcome expansion of such businesses here on the Paradise Coast over the past few years. One such example is Opera Naples, which has a terrific season for 2012-13 that includes Puccinis Tosca, Nathan Gunn in concert, Benjamin Brittens A Midsummer Nights Dream and Felix Mendelsohns Elijah. ON also has a fine education program for young artists. A growing business in the performing arts needs deft, competent leadership. In July 2011, Tom Smith began his tenure with ON as its managing director. He arrived with more than 15 years of experience in all facets of arts administration, and this past summer, he was elevated to ON executive director and CEO. It is a fitting position for one whose previous affiliations include the Des Moines Metro Opera as executive director and CEO and the Cincinnati Opera Association as director of finance. He also spent four years with the Baltimore Opera Company, leaving that organization as director of administration, and served for one year as president and CEO of the Modesto Symphony. Tom grew up in Hampton, Va., the youngest of five children, all of who attended public schools and were guided toward music as an activity. Seeing his first opera as a freshman in college, Tom was drawn to the grandeur of the productions and the power of the music. He earned a bachelors degree in finance from the College of William and Mary, where he became involved with the Sinfonicron Light Opera Company, a student-run group dedicated primarily to the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. Producing two shows for them gave him his first taste of the world of arts administration. He went on to earn dual degrees at the University of Cincinnati: an MBA from the Lindner College of Business and a masters of arts administration from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. A highlight for Tom in his current position has been the announcement that Opera Naples will make its full production debut at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts this December. He sits on the board of the Naples Music Club and, when he has time, enjoys travel, golf, cooking, animal rescue and distance running and cycling (especially here, where there are few hills, he says). Naples has so many great cultural experiences for the taking, he says about his new home.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 1-7, 2012 Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He graduated in his late 20s, a hard won achievement he sacrificed for and believes in. Matt encourages me to complete my own bachelors degree every time he gets the chance. He even offered to lend me money to go back to school a few years ago. But at the same time, for almost a decade now, Matt has kept his framed certificate from the University of Wisconsin hanging in his bathroom, right above the toilet. That speaks mainly to his pottycentric sense of humor, but also to the ambivalence that many people feel about the true worth of a bachelors degree for many still a key aspect of the American Dream. I always believed you need an education to get higher in life, says Sarah Lewis, a 19-year-old freshman majoring in special education at Florida Gulf Coast University. She plans to graduate as much as $15,000 in debt. Her friend Jacob Weaver, an 18-yearold majoring in athletic training, plans to graduate with a sizeable loan, too. I think its worth it, but its stressful and I know Ill be in debt, he said. The case for college hasnt been helped by tuition rates, which inch up every year; or by the ever-increasing debt that students are accruing. It has risen steadily by 5 percent per year while at the same time the unemployment rate among college graduates in 2011 was 8.8 percent, down from a record high of 9.1 percent the year before, according to the Institute for College Access & Successs Project on Student Debt. And about 38 percent of graduates were working at jobs that did not require a college diploma. The study, released this month, has been published yearly since 2005 to call attention to the growing debt burden students bear, said Lauren Asher, The Institutes president. It polled public and private nonprofit colleges across all 50 states about the class of 2011, accounting for about 79 percent of all U.S. bachelors degrees earned and payed for that year. The study found that two-thirds of those students took out loans and they were on average $26,600 in debt. Some estimates put Americans total college debt, including federal or direct loans as well as private loans, and not just bachelors but masters and doctorate degrees, at more than a trillion dollars. The Department of Education says one in six students with a federal loan is currently in default, the highest rate in 14 years. That default rate could be tied to the dropout rate, suggests Gina Doeble, vice president of administrative services at Edison State College, which has campuses in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties. Ninety-five percent of students who defaulted on federal loans administered by the school last year had dropped out or withdrawn, she said. Among the states, the institutes study shows, average debt upon graduation varied widely, from $17,000 to more than $30,000; on campuses, the range was from $3,000 to $55,250 per student. In Florida, about half the class of 2011 graduated in debt, on average $23,054 per student, the report says. At Florida Gulf Coast University, that number was $22,171. Forty-one percent of students there had debt, also lower than the two-thirds national average. Still, the monthly payment on such a debt would be near that of a car, $200 or $300. For many, it is much higher. Because I worked at a private university before, I know there were students facing larger loans, said Diane Farrell, assistant director of career development services at FGCU. They had to go live with parents for awhile or reconsider their plans. I had one student, not an FGCU student, from before. She wanted to work for a nonprofit but she had in the range of $100,000 in debt. Now youre talking (payments of) over $1,100 a month.Public vs. private loansExtremely high monthly payments are a factor more in private loans, which colleges tend to discourage because they offer borrowers fewer protections and often have higher interest rates. The federal governments Stafford loans now max out at $57,500 for undergrads and $138,500 for doctorate candidates (and more for special medical training) and have an interest rate of 6.8 percent or less. They offer income-based repayment, which caps payments based on your take-home pay, usually 15 percent, and debt forgiveness. For public servants and nonprofit workers, debts are written off after 10 years of payments and 25 years for others. An executive order passed last year by the Obama administration further eased repayment rules for some students beginning in 2014, with payments capped at 10 percent of income and debt forgiveness after 20 years. Still, a big loan can hobble the beginnings of a life thats seeking things like marriage, a car, a family, a house or a white picket fence. Student loans is a dangerous game right now, said Jorge Lopez, director of student financial services at FGCU. Nationally, with the economy the way it is and students graduating with loans and not being able to pay them, thats why its so dangerous right now. Theyre going to be impacted negatively credit wise and in a lot of different ways. Thats why I think its very scary. The average debt upon graduation in 2011 was $22,189 at Florida State University in Tallahassee, where 54 percent of students had debt; and $16,841 at the University of Florida in Gainesville, where 39 percent of students had a loan. Complete figures for Hodges University and Edison State College are not represented by the institutes report, but similar figures are found on the National Center for Education Statistics websites College Navigator feature. Seventy-eight percent of all Hodges students received federal aid in 2010-11, and the average amount for just that one year was $6,041. Twenty-three percent of students at Edison State College received federal aid in 2010-11, with an average amount for that one year of $3,998. In the last five years we have seen an increase in what students borrow, with the economy being bad, said Joseph H. Gilchrist, vice president of student financial services at Hodges in Naples. I think the most important thing is getting a degree, though. The instit utes study points out that private for-profit schools were not included in the report because only nine of them (less than 2 percent) agreed to provide the requested information about student debt and students at those schools borrow significantly more than their counterparts at nonprofit schools. Rasmussen College, a forprofit school with 22 campuses in five states, including facilities in Fort Myers, declined to provide Florida Weekly with information about how much debt its students leave the school with or how many students take out a loan to pay for school there. A spokesperson for the school reached by telephone said those numbers were not available. The school didnt follow up on a request to speak with a financial advisor. A generation ago, less than half of college graduates had loans and now its two-thirds, Ms. Asher of The Institute says. With student debt becoming a fact of life for more Americans, its crucial theres adequate grant aid that limits the need to borrow, that students and families are getting good information about college costs and options for covering those costs and that policies like (Income Based Repayment) are available to help contain the risk of borrowing. Our higher educating system has evolved to the point where borrowing has increasingly become a necessity for a majority of college grads.Living expensesZach Strachman, 21, plans to graduate with a degree in English from FGCU and hed rather not say how much debt. The cost of school, I mean its pretty high, he said. The housing expenses here are pretty steep as opposed to living off campus. Ive done both, and its a noticeable difference in price. Hes considering going to grad school and is currently working on a novel in the zombie fiction genre. As far as what Ive come to school for and what Ive learned, I feel like the prices arent horribly high, he said. Mr. Strachmans friend, 22-year-old chemistry major Kyle Starrett, has changed his major at least four times. You cant blame college prices on someone who isnt motivated, who is slacking. A person who does nothing with it is someone who is stupid, he said. Me being one of those slacker students, I know. With all the grants, subsidized loans I think students have a fair chance to get through college. Mr. Strachman, behind his long black bangs and reflective sunglasses added, A lot of kids are just forced into college and they dont know what they want. And honestly, its a very expensive daycare program. How much its worth depends on what you want to learn, how much you want to take away from the experience, but if youre just here to party, well, there you go. Financial aid director Mr. Lopez of FGCU points out that in general it is living expenses, not tuition, where students incur the most debt. Do you really need to live on campus? he asks rhetorically. Its not cheap to live on campus Do you really need an iMac? Schools saw a spike in federal student loans for a number of reasons related to the recession, financial aid advisors said, including that they had less money to award from endowments after losing donors; more people qualified for federal Stafford loans after they became poorer; states spent less on education funding, including Floridas Bright Futures Scholarships; and the Pell Grants actual value declined. The government also began making loans directly to students instead of going through another entity, streamlining the process. Students were just accepting everything that was out there, they were accepting the full amount, said Gina Doeble, vice president of administrative services at Edison State College. Theres so many of them that used that money to pay for rent, for gas, food. They take out that loan money to live on and its all they have, unfortunately. Most students end up getting some type of grants or scholarships, lowering the actual sticker price of schools. Sixty-four percent of students at FGCU received aid in 2010-11, and nearly 30 percent of them qualified for Pell Grants. While programs like Pell Grants help low-income students, its the ones stuck in the middle that end up taking on the largest loans, financial advisors say. The aid is there for lower income students. Its the middle class that really gets squeezed in my opinion, Mr. Gilchrist said. College paysEven if college is more expensive than ever, figures clearly show that it pays off financially not just for students but also for tax-collecting entities. But Lauren Asher, president of the Institute for College Access & Success, points out that when the majority of students will face the prospect of leaving school with debt in the amount of a new car, it makes the idea of doodling American flags and donkeys on your notebook while enduring a monotone lecture about Abraham Lincoln less appealing. She actually put it a little differently than that. A college degree is still the best investment you can make in your future and in the countrys future, Ms. Asher says. If you look at unemployment rates (of college graduates), which have been higher than usual, theyre still less than half the rate of those who have just high school diplomas. The unemployment rate among high school graduates in 2011 was 19.1 percent, the institutes study reported. College graduates also earn more income. The median yearly income for male high school graduates over age 25 was $40,060 in 2010, while their counterparts with a bachelors degree averaged $63,740 in income; for women, those numbers are $29,860 and $47,440, an inequality beyond the reach of college. Those numbers fail to convince everyone. Its amazing, whether your parents push you or not, how society pushes you (to go to college), said Fort Myers resident Jeanie Williamson, who has two children who graduated from college and two in it now. I didnt push my kids to go to college and they all felt like thats the only way. There are just so many other ways of learning and I think society as a whole should shift gears. I think apprenticeship should be an option if you know what you want to do. One of her sons graduated from Johnson & Wales University in 2005, later taking additional courses at FGCU without earning a higher degree. Now an executive chef, hes still paying off his debt, which amounted to more than $20,000. That college debt does lay heavy over his head, even doing well, Ms. Williamson said. He asked a girl to marry him two years ago and because of their finances theyre both just getting to it in December. One of the keys to reducing student debt is educating students about how it can impact their lives later, said Ms. Farrell of FGCU. Right now, first-time Stafford loan borrowers have to undergo minimal financial counseling on the governments website. It would be a very positive development if we could see some financial education happening the last year of high school or the first few years of college, she said. I think there should be serious conversations to help them understand the seriousness of this choice theyre making. DEBTFrom page 1
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 1-7, 2012 NEWS A9 PhysiciansRegional.com Grants awarded to teachers in classrooms across Collier County SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYEighty-nine Collier County teachers were the happy recipients of classroom grant awards on Oct. 24. The educators were surprised with the good news by volunteers and board members of The Education Foundation-Champions For Learning, who delivered a total of 119 grants to 44 schools. Value of the grants was nearly $52,000. A matching opportunity could bring the total to $72,000 and would fund even more classroom grant requests for the 2012-13 school year. Heres how that works: The Education FoundationChampions For Learning will match dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000, any donations made by the public toward classroom grants not yet funded. Among the projects/materials for which teachers still hope to receive funds are: $90.85 for the purchase of three books that will give seventh-grade science teachers at East Naples Middle School strategies and activities to help them better engage their students in reading instructions and writing in science. $395.58 for a third-grade teacher at Golden Terrace Elementary to purchase a 50 student books and two teacher guides for the Florida CARS & STARS curriculum to improve reading and comprehension skills for at-risk students. $1,395 for the purchase of online teacher resources for World Cultures Alive!, a program to help ninth graders at Lorenzo Walker Technical High School learn about different cultures around the world, tear down stereotypes and build independent thoughts about diversity. For a complete list of grant requests that are still available, visit www.educationforcollier.org/connectwithaclassroom/. Whether the amount donated is $5 or $5,000, 100 percent of every contribution from the public goes toward fulfilling a classroom grant. Additional funding for the program is provided by Herb and Ann Rowe and PNC Bank. Significant grant sponsors to date include Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union Foundation, The English-Speaking Union and the Lucie Jenny MacCarthy Music Fund of the Community Foundation of Collier County. Proceeds from the specialty Florida Educational License Plate Fund (www.License4Learning.com) also go toward classroom grants. Whenever the license plate is purchased or renewed in Collier County, $20 of the fee goes to the Education Foundation-Champions For Learning, which invests 100 percent of the dollars in classroom grants. The Education Foundation began funding classroom grants more than 20 years ago. The online Connect With A Classroom program began in 2003, allowing teachers to post funding requests for materials and other resources to enrich their students classroom experience. At Parkside Elementary School, some of the students in Erica Cottos class celebrate with Jim Hoppensteadt, chairman of the board for Champions For Learning, and with Lenore Brakefield, Ms. Cotto and Tamie Stewart. Teacher Laura Heald and some of her North Naples Middle School students are all smiles after Ms. Heald received a check for the amount of her grant request. Teachers at Laurel Oak Elementary School celebrate their Connect With A Classroom grants. Front row, left to right: Carol Jenson, Mary Morey, Amy Gaillard and Marilou Andrews.

Food bank hopes for holiday turkeysWith Thanksgiving fast approaching, the Harry Chapin Food Bank has put out a plea for 5,000 turkeys needed by its participating no-profit agencies. These agencies rely on donated turkeys to fill holiday food baskets for the everincreasing numbers of hungry adults and children in Southwest Florida. Higher living costs, coupled with job loss and other difficulties, mean Southwest Florida families are struggling to make ends meet. The holiday season will stress household budgets even more. Struggling families cannot afford holiday meals and other traditions that so many of us take for granted. They need your help. The food bank estimates the cost of one turkey to be $15. Individuals can either purchase and donate a turkey or can give money that will be used to buy turkeys and trimmings for those in need. Businesses can help by holding a turkey drive, collecting money so that the food bank can purchase turkeys and encouraging customers to support the drive. Turkeys can be dropped off at Harry Chapin Food Bank warehouses in Naples at 2221 Corporation Blvd., or in Fort Myers at 3760 Fowler St. Checks can be mailed to the same addresses (Naples zip code, 34109; Fort Myers, 33901), and secure donations can be made online at www.harrychapinfoodbank.org. The Harry Chapin Food Bank solicits, collects and stores food for distribution through a network of 160 nonprofit agencies in Collier, Lee, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades counties that provide food to more than 30,000 people monthly. For every dollar donated, about $6 in food value goes back to the community. NONPROFIT NEWS

Airport noise committee leaders re-elected SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Edith Scott Scottie Yeager and William Cox have been re-elected as chair and vice chair, respectively of the Naples Airport Authority Noise Compatibility Committee, which helps monitor the impact of aircraft noise and makes recommendations about noise-mitigation procedures to the board of commissioners of the NAA for consideration. During the past year, the committee developed the Please Fly Safe Fly Quiet program to encourage compliance with noise-abatement measures at Naples Municipal Airport. Ms. Yeager is a real estate broker, private pilot and ground instructor whose professional career includes nearly two decades in aircraft marketing, leasing and sales. She holds a bachelors degree from University of Hartford, has been a resident of Collier County for 30 years and of the city of Naples for two decades, and has served as treasurer of the Aqualane Shores Association.

Thats 60 percent of the voters voting on each particular amendment must vote yes for it to pass.Florida Weekly also checked the websites of the Florida Chamber of Commerce and The League of Women Voters of Florida to see what positions they have taken on each amendment. We hope their opinions can help inform your choices. The League of Women Voters rejects all the amendments and recommends a No vote, saying that amendments are often cleverly and confusingly worded to ensconce ultra-radical priorities near-permanently in the Constitution. The chamber supports amendments that it determines are in the best interest of businesses and citizens. No. 1: Health Care FreedomThis is a state reaction and protest to the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. The amendment would prohibit local governments and the state government from requiring the purchase of health insurance. The amendment, though, cant override Obamacare. The Florida Chamber of Commerce supports this amendment. The League of Women Voters of Florida opposes this amendment. No. 2: Tax Break for combat-wounded veteransThis amendment would expand homestead exemption for disabled veterans who were not residents of Florida when they enlisted in the armed services. The Florida Chamber of Commerce has no position on this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes it.No. 3: Smart Cap, Government Revenue LimitFrom the amendment: replaces existing state revenue limitation based on Florida personal income growth with a new state revenue limitation based on inflation and population changes. It is designed to slow the growth of state government. The Florida Chamber of Commerce supports this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes this amendment. No. 4: New property tax exemptionThis amendment has three main elements that offer what have been termed major tax breaks. First, for homeowners who have not owned a home in three years a new homestead exemption will be offered. Second, it contains a provision that a homeowners tax bill cant go up if the homeowners property value went down that year. Third, it reduces from 10 percent to 5 percent the limitation on annual changes in assessments of non-homestead real estate property. The Florida Chamber of Commerce supports this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes this amendment. No. 5: State CourtsThe goal of this amendment is to fiddle with the balance of power between the state legislature and the state courts and give greater power to the legislature. Under this proposal state Supreme Court justices must be confirmed by the state senate. The legislatures ability to repeal court rules would also increase. The Florida Chamber of Commerce supports this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes this amendment. No. 6: Restrictions on state funding for abortionsIt, simply, prohibits state funding for abortions. The amendment includes this verbiage: This prohibition does not apply to an expenditure required by federal law, a case in which a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would place her in danger of death unless an abortion is performed, or a case of rape or incest. The Florida Chamber of Commerce has no position on this amendment. The League of Women Votes opposes this amendment. No. 7: Noting to see here. Move right along, folks. No. 8: Religious freedomFrom the proposed amendment: .no individual or entity may be denied, on the basis of religious identity or belief, governmental benefits, funding or other support, except as required by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. ... If approved, this amendment would eliminate regulations against state money going to religious groups. The amendment would repeal a provision that has been in the state constitution for 126 years. The Florida Chamber of Commerce supports this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes this amendment. No. 9: Homestead property tax exemption for spouses of military veterans or first respondersThis amendment proposes giving the legislature authority to totally or partially exempt from paying property taxes to the following: The surviving spouses of military veterans or first responders who died in the line of duty. The Florida Chamber of Commerce has no position on this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes this amendment.No. 10: Tangible personal property tax exemptionThis proposal provides an exemption from property taxes from local governments on tangible personal property with a value of more than $25,000 but less than $50,000. This amendment is designed for businesses only. The Florida Chamber of Commerce supports this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes this amendment. No. 11: Additional homestead exemptionThat three-word title for this amendment tells only part of the No. 11 story. It is followed by 12 more words: Low-Income Seniors Who Maintain Long-Term Residency on Property; Equal to Assessed Value. Its a catchy title that means, essentially, a break on property taxes for seniors older than 65 who earn less than $27,030 a year and have resided in their current home for more than 25 years. Wait, theres more: The property must be valued at less than $250,000. The Florida Chamber of Commerce has no position on this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes this amendment. No. 12: Appointment of student body president to board of governors of the state university systemThis proposal would replace a current system in which the president of the Florida Students Association sits on the board of governors, the body that operates Floridas state universities. Instead, under this proposal, the chairman of the council of state university student body presidents will serve as the student member of the board of governors. The Florida Chamber of Commerce has no position on this amendment. The League of Women Voters opposes this amendment. AMENDMENTSFrom page 1

Outdoor fabrics work incredibly well. You dont want to be on pins and needles about ruining some fancy silk ottoman. His advice about indoor and outdoor spaces: Work to loosen the line between inside and out. Put an indoor dining set outside, use outdoor chairs inside, rely on garden accessories for interiors mix it all up for a feeling of instant, laid-back style. Finally, invite in an abundance of natural elements: thick wicker, driftwood, grass cloth and matchstick blinds.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 1-7, 2012 NEWS A25 888-440-2852 www.lbulighting.com11985 Tamiami Trail N Naples, FL 34110 TOWN HALL TALKGoing to great depths to solve the worlds mysteries His name is synonymous with exploration and discovery of the worlds most remote waters. Hes a sojourner for truth and ancient mysteries, and has single-handedly debunked some of historys most infamous misconceptions. Naples Town Hall Distinguished Speaker Series welcomes oceanographer, author and deep-sea archaeologist Robert Bob Ballard on Tuesday, Jan. 8, when he will give our guests unprecedented access to some of the planets most pursued legends. A former commander in the United States Navy, Mr. Ballard is possibly best known for his 1985 discovery of the RMS Titanic. It was his unprecedented design of a new breed of sea exploration vessels decades ago that facilitated the Titanic mission and that also led to the Bismarck, which was sunk by the Royal Navy in 1941. A marine scientist since 1974, Mr. Ballard completed his doctoral degrees in marine geology and geophysics at the University of Rhode Island. More than 40 years ago he marked a new day for sea exploration, diving to a hitherto unheard of depth of 9,000 feet in Alvin, the three-person submersible he developed. Entire libraries of books have been devoted to Mr. Ballards contributions to the worlds discoveries. His exploration of the Galapagos Rift, during which his team uncovered thermal vents, also revealed plant and animal life that led to the discovery of chemosynthesis, the chemical synthesis of food energy. His design of the 16-foot submersible sled named the Argo tested another new technology he called telepresence, which like so many of his designs would revolutionize underwater exploration. From 13,000 feet down on the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean, Mr. Ballards Argo sent back those first images of the Titanics massive boilers. A year later, he traveled to the wreckage in Alvin. Perhaps one of his most valuable contributions has been his establishment of the educational JASON project, which allows students to follow expeditions. I jumped at the chance to better understand the man who has become an undersea legend. Heres what he shared. Q: One hundred years have passed since Capt. Edward Smith commanded the unsinkable Titanic and she met her icy grave. What is the biggest misconception about that historic sinking that will not seem to die? A: That the White Star Line claimed she was unsinkable, which they did not. Q: The details of your secret mission for the U.S. Navy to locate and photograph two lost Cold War era nuclear submarines was, until recently, considered classified. When you found the USS Thresher and USS Scorpion, were they intact? A: Both submarines were destroyed by the pressure of the sea when they fell below their crush depth. Thresher was the most destroyed, with the implosion breaking her up into thousands of pieces, the tail section being the largest remaining piece visible. Her reactor compartment buried itself in the sea floor bottom, creating a larger impact crater. The Scorpion, on the other hand, consists of three large pieces the tail section, which telescoped inside the central section of the sub, the forward torpedo room and the reactor compartment, also buried into the sea floor bottom. These larger sections were all surrounded by hundreds of pieces of debris. Q: If you had an unlimited budget and all the manpower, hardware and technological resources in the world at your disposal, what lost ship, civilization or historical mystery would you pursue? A: I would search for evidence of Neolithic settlements in the Black Sea where the legend of the Biblical Flood may have had its origins, find Sir Ernest Shackletons ship the Endurance in the Weddell Sea, find the Indianapolis, and go where no one has gone before on planet Earth to make discoveries we cant even think of. Q: Do you have any misgivings or trepidations regarding misuse or exploitation of your discoveries? A: I am sorry that my discovery of the Titanic led to people going out to the site, taking things off the bottom instead of respecting the site and leaving it alone. Q: Do you believe that certain mysteries are better left unsolved and that their locations should forever remain secret? A: I think people should always attempt to solve ancient mysteries.

The award-winning feature film examines the profound claim that most, if not all, degenerative diseases can be controlled, or even reversed, not by using drugs or surgery, but by rejecting a diet of animal-based and processed foods. Despite having the most advanced medical technology in the world, Americans are sicker than ever, by nearly every measure. Two out of three of us are overweight. Diabetes is becoming more and more prevalent, especially amongst younger Americans. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug, and major medical operations have become routine. Filmed all over the United States, and in Canada and China, Forks Over Knives traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. Dr. Campbell, a nutritional scientist at Cornell University, was concerned in the late 1960s with producing high quality animal protein to bring to the poor and malnourished areas of the third world. While in the Philippines, he made a life-changing discovery: The countrys wealthier children, who were consuming relatively high amounts of animal-based foods, were much more likely to get liver cancer. Dr. Esselstyn, a top surgeon and head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, found that many of the diseases he routinely treated were virtually unknown in parts of the world where animal-based foods were rarely consumed. These discoveries inspired the two doctors, who didnt know each other yet, to conduct several groundbreaking studies. One of them took place in China and is still among the most comprehensive health-related investigations ever undertaken. Their research led them to the startling conclusion that a whole-foods, plant-based diet could prevent, control or even reverse degenerative diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and even several forms of cancer. Despite the implications of their findings, their work has remained relatively unknown to the public. The filmmakers travel with Drs. Campbell and Esselstyn on their separate but similar paths, from the farms of their childhood to China and Cleveland, where they explored ideas that challenged the established thinking and shook their own core beliefs. Forks Over Knives puts the idea of food as medicine to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow reality patients who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. As doctors teach these patients how to adopt a new diet as the primary approach to their ailments, the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed. The Sewells will host the screening and a follow-up program at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at their home at 10202 Vanderbilt Drive. Although attendance is free, RSVPs are requested and can be made by calling 591-4565 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Coming up next in the Mensa health science seminar series: The Greater Good: The Vaccine Debate at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. HEALTHY LIVING High-tech and high-touch: the ideal health-care combinationStroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Thats why we were pleased recently when the Agency for Health Care Administration named the NCH Downtown Naples Hospital and NCH North Naples Hospital as the first hospitals in Collier County to be awarded the designation of Primary Stroke Centers. That means we exhibit best practices for the care of stroke patients, according to the AHCA/American Stroke Association, whose guidelines recommend early arrival to hospitals that follow these best practices and offer emergency stroke care. Michele Thoman, our chief nursing officer, reports that more than 800 men and women in Collier County were treated for acute stroke in 201112. NCH hospitals treated more than 650 of these individuals with stateof-the-art examinations, treatments and tests, she adds. Ms. Thoman also notes that NCH treated an additional 200 patients with transient symptoms of a stroke called TIA. These highrisk-for-stroke patients received testing and education on how to prevent an actual stroke and how to immediately respond should one occur. Stroke is an emergency, and the ASA recommends that all patients having signs or symptoms of stroke be transported to the nearest Primary Stroke Center or hospital with an equivalent designation, given the available acute therapeutic interventions. Collier County residents are urged to call 911 and get to a hospital within 60 minutes of the start of stroke symptoms, in order to be assessed for the clot-busting medicine that can contain and sometimes reverse paralysis. Both NCH campuses have newly remodeled and specially equipped nursing units with staff trained in the care of stroke patients.

The granddaughter who cares for her filed a complaint against a grandson who withdrew hundreds of thousands of dollars from the elderly womans account. It turns out that the granddaughter, who has power of attorney, previously had withdrawn money herself from the account and used it to buy a vacation home. The police are involved, but the woman is out more than money; she might have lost the ability to stay in her home. The case from the files of Older Adult Protective Services in Philadelphia is sad, but not unusual. A National Center on Elder Abuse study notes that seniors often fall victim to financial crimes, and that most of the time a trusted person or family member is to blame. For whatever reason fear, isolation, shame, confusion or embarrassment seniors rarely report the abuse. Yet financial exploitation of the elderly is one of the most destructive forms of abuse. Seniors generally are unable to recoup their losses, and the emotional toll can be devastating. It can even have health consequences. Financial abuse can take many forms: scams, identity thefts, credit-card fraud and even theft of property through fraudulent title transfers. Senior citizens are especially vulnerable. Many times, they are physically or emotionally dependent on others. They entrust those close to them with their financial information in order to meet obligations or, due to the loss of a spouse, they might be handling their finances themselves for the first time in their lives. They also are vulnerable to scammers who find seniors not only home when they call, but also looking for someone to talk to. Medications, frailty and confusion can also have an impact. A strong relationship with a financial institution can help protect people of all ages. When banks know their customers, their financial habits and their families, it offers a more complete picture and makes it easier to help people manage their accounts. Here are a few tips to help protect yourself and the older adults in your life: Establish relationship with bank personnel. Use direct deposit. Do not leave cash or financial records in the open keep in a secure place. If someone is helping you or an aging relative manage finances, have a third party review the information. Cancel any ATM, debit and credit cards you dont use. Dont give out your PIN or write it on the card. Do not give out credit card numbers over the phone unless you placed the call. Do not give out Social Security numbers or account numbers over the phone. Elder abuse is a crime that can impact senior citizens from all walks of life. A good first step in helping them could just be a visit to your local bank. David Call is president and CEO of Fifth Third Bank-South Florida.Strong banking relationships can help protect seniors from financial abuseBY DAVID CALLSpecial to Florida Weekly WEISSFrom page 28and Rehabilitation, an inpatient acute rehabilitation center, and many outpatient settings are available to patients through their recovery process.Heres to volunteersWeve also recently been celebrating the 1,200 volunteers who help patients and our health-care community every day in so many ways. As an example, when Sandra Oestrike, the charge R.N. on the fifth floor of the Baker Tower, had a confused elderly patient who required one-on-one comforting, she contacted the North Naples volunteer coordinator to ask for help. Shortly thereafter, Brookdale volunteer Carol Graff kindly held the patients hands, sang to her (apologizing undeservedly for her voice) and succeeded in easing her anxiety. Diane Van Parys, a volunteer in the North Naples gift shop, recruited Gloria Dudas as a volunteer when they met at a community pool. Ms. Dudas, who is a nurse by training, now volunteers regularly on the sixth floor of the Baker Tower, where she says the duties fit her perfectly. My point this week is that we at NCH are proud of the clinical capacity that enables us to receive the distinction of Primary Stroke Center, but we are equally proud of people like the aforementioned volunteers who serve so nobly. Its the perfect combination of high-tech and high-touch. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of NCH Healthcare System.

PET TALESMyths or true?Dogs licking wont help your wounds BY GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickThe idea that a dogs saliva has healing powers has been around at least since the ancient Greeks and Romans, whose physicians believed it to be an antidote for poisoning. Later, St. Roch was often pictured with a dog licking a sore, reflecting the belief that the patron saint of plague victims knew something about a cure and that his dogs saliva made him healthy. Modern medicine, no surprise, doesnt look kindly on such theories. And by the way: Dogs are attracted to open wounds because the serum from them is sweet. The phrase Beware of Dog is so old that its Latin equivalent cave canem has been found on signs in Roman ruins. The word watchdog isnt quite so old; the first mention of it is by Shakespeare, in The Tempest. Neuter a dog with a needle? The return of an injectable drug that sterilizes male dogs is being watched closely by animal-welfare organizations and veterinarians, in hopes of having another tool at their disposal in keeping the number of pets needing new homes down. According to the VIN News Service, Zeuterin is a solution of zinc gluconate thats injected directly into the testicles, killing existing sperm and stimulating inflammation that leads to scarring. The resulting scar tissue results in infertility. COURTESY PHOTOA dogs tongue doesnt help heal wounds use an antibiotic instead.

Should a sinner make his way to this mansion, All his past sins are to be washed away. The sight of this mansion creates sorrowing sighs; And the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes. In this world this edifice has been made; To display thereby the creators glory. Emperor Shah Jahan regarding the Taj Mahal Golf is a great game. I remember playing once. I wore all white under a blazing sun. I carried one Club who knew there were different kinds and a bottle of something stout. Perhaps Southern Comfort. Which leaves the bottle oily and the mind manicured. I had a great time learning to drive. How did I get that bruise on my thigh? But every good experience comes to an end, a head, a tale. Listen up: This is all that is as I have heard required. If Spanish moss were the hair extensions of goddesses or if Catalina were nothing more than a swimsuit, perhaps one could speculate profitably. Its like this: An underwritten dream of that yellow brick shit house roadie, this Taj Mahal queen, that syncopation alienation vibratune elation. Now I know why I write off and off and on and on and on and stories. In the face of the moving doom of a thousand thousand of a thousand worlds, I am still bliss. Like Ming, Dale, Aura, and Flash, all one cross hatching, seen perhaps by the good Dr. Zarkov, as fractils visiting planes and simple. I did three bad things when I was a kid, no kidding. First, a bum came to our home to give a hand, to get an out, for a handout. Only my mother and I were home. She invited him in. He was gray, all of him, like he had stepped out of a black-and-why TB. He was shaped like a wizard: tall, thin, long in hair and beard and nails. I wanted to leave with him. But he went, going, going, gone after a cup of Liptons tea. And the wrong was thus: After he left I took the tea bag and rinsed it out until no more gray came out, just water crystal clear. I washed him out of my heir, my here, my noun. Second, after someone knocked me off my rocker my shorter legs wrapped around the rockers, back and forth entranced, now lying tangled in a web of limbs and tears entrance stage left someone who looked like me did the same knocking up the down stare case. Hours then I sat in front of the space heater, flames dancing, and I with them either flame or fuel or fool or judge and jury and perpetrator and perpetraitored. Third, when Flash Gordon was tied to those tied trees, the saplings in an X and his legs not, in that moment before the rope was cut and he would be beyond the death dealing duality: I carried that timely when into my secret chamber, with the tea bag, and I wrung it out too over and over, feeling the wonder of no longer being a re-run. This is no-yoke. Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

SW Floridas Fastest Growing Mortgage Bank! MONEY & INVESTING The real reasons behind growing income inequality The types of jobs created in the recovery (2009 to present) offer some critical reasons for heightened inequality between the wealthy and the middle class. Instead of the unemployed in the middle income bracket regaining employment in middle management, mid-skill, mid-wage jobs, the unemployed middle class was forced into lower-paying jobs. The numbers and findings were not created by a conservative group to support their claim that the present administrations recovery has been a failure; the numbers were created by a dedicated pro labor group that, in my opinion, has very strong liberal leanings: the National Employment Law Project. According to NELP, 60 percent of the jobs lost in the Great Recession were mid-wage jobs but the large majority of jobs created were low-wage positions. Some 58 percent of the jobs created during the recovery have been lowwage positions Only 22 percent have been mid-wage jobs and 20 percent higher-wage positions. (Source: CNN Money, Aug. 31, 2012, The low wage job expolosion.) Once paid a median hourly wage of $13.84 to $21.13, the majority of unemployed middle income workers were then forced into jobs with wages of $13.83 per hour or less (NELPs definition of low-wage jobs.) It is that drop in income that has created a huge sense of loss and income inequality. Is there anything to suggest that better-paying jobs are more recently on the uptick? Per NELPs policy coordinator Annette Bernhardt, The recovery continues to be skewed toward low-wage jobs, reinforcing the rise in inequality and Americas deficit of good jobs While theres understandably a lot of focus on getting employment back to pre-recession levels, the quality of jobs is rapidly emerging as a second front in the struggling recovery. (Source: CNN Money.) What is a typical middle class job that was lost? Per NELP, in the first quarter 2008 through first quarter 2012, the four largest losses of mid-pay jobs were in the following categories: truck drivers and sales worker s, (495, 000 jobs), secretaries and administrative assistants (345,000), office managers (327,000) and carpenters (211,000). What industries created middle class jobs? Durables manufacturing and health-care were the two primary creators of mid-wage jobs. The largest low-wage employer increases were in food services and retail, generally regarded as easy hire, easy fire jobs. There is a lot of rhetoric that the wealthy are not paying their fair share. Folks at the top play by a different sert of rules is often heard. Maybe the current administration has not looked at the facts behind the jobs recovery facts put forth by a group that describes its dedication to help create a ladder to economic opportunity and an anchor of economic security for working families. The No. 1 reason that NELP lists for failure to realize of these goals is not unfair or inadequate taxation of the wealthy, but rather that Globalization has combined with domestic policy choices to yield an economy that creates too many lowwage jobs and not nearly enough good ones. (NELP Website, NELP Background.) Translated, fair trade needs to be created and businesses need to be incentivized to come and stay in the U.S. Hitting businesses over the head does not achieve those goals. Currency manipulation by the Chinese hurts opportunities for American manufacturers. The middle class deserves to know the real reasons why they suffer. It is not that someone wealthier is taking a larger share of the economic pie. Rather, the past four years of recovery cut the middle class a smaller slice; it did not create the types of jobs that employ the middle class to their full talent and restore them to their prior levels of compensation. In that light, campaign platforms offering tax relief of a few thousand dollars per middle class family or blaming the wealthy diverts the discussion away from the real problem: the poor quality of jobs created for the middle class in the past four years.

The comparison is apt, although the TAF the first in Southwest Florida is only now picking up the pace of investments with both money and intellectual capital in promising new business ventures from the region or state. Now that were entering our third season, I believe the pace of investment will increase, says Tim Cartwright, managing director of the Compass Advisory Group, part of Fifth Avenue Investors where he is a partner, and chairman of both the Gulf Coast Venture Forum and the Tamiami Angel Fund. Weve streamlined certain processes, and we know what we want. The Gulf Coast Venture Forum includes about 100 members between its two current chapters. The TAF, meanwhile, with more than 40 members who kick at least $50,000 apiece into the fund, requires accredited investors to show at least $1 million of net worth minus the value of a home, or $200,000 of adjusted gross income filing singly, or $300,000 filing jointly. The importance of that kind of economic muscle and wisdom many members have headed major corporations, or still do in powering up a robust future economy is hard to underestimate, says Ray Leach, a founder and leader of JumpStart, a Cleveland, Ohio-based nonprofit champion of angel funds. JumpStart has proven one of the most successful economic engines of its kind in the United States, according to business pundits. Mr. Leach, who owns a home in south Lee County, has helped JumpStart establish an advisory relationship with the Gulf Coast Venture Forum. In a lot of communities across the 13 states we get involved in we might find, for example, a university generating opportunities, but they often dont have an angel fund, he says. Southwest Florida does, and it can be incredibly helpful in creating earlystage opportunities. He offers a single statistic to make sharply clear the potential importance of angel fund investors: In the last decade, 70 percent of new jobs in the United States were created by companies five years old or younger. Those are the companies Mr. Cartwright and his partners are seeking. Now, Mr. Cartwright explains, the Venture Forum and its Tamiami Angel Fund have a close collaborative relationship, with a memorandum of understanding.The Gulf Coast Venture Forum will focus on early-stage deals that are prerevenue, and TAF will concentrate on early stage deals that are revenue producing.If a company presents at either the Venture Forum or the TAF and distinguishes itself, we will refer that company to both, so it can get maximum exposure to investors. Nothing like it has happened before in the region. It marks a high point, a golden opportunity, for innovative new entrepreneurs but that doesnt mean the opportunity will come easily. On the contrary, if the first two years of TAF investments are any indication. The process required to gain angelfund backing is rigorous and selective, a powerfully reductive meritocracy of sorts. Only the very best ideas, well planned and executed, are likely to make the cut. Our total deal flows since inception have numbered 563, explains Mr. Cartwright. In other words, 563 entrepreneurs sought investment backing by contacting the Tamiami Angel Fund. Of those, 27 have been invited to present to our group, he added. We approved 13 to go to due diligence, and three we invested in. At this juncture Id like to be invested in six to eight companies. But I also have to preface that comment by saying, this is the first ever angel fund of Southwest Florida. This is the first time 41 members could come together, could cooperate and work together in a democratic investment process. It takes longer than you anticipate. But it also takes off, just like the X-15. INNOVATIONFrom page 1 Gulf Coast Venture Forum Season Kick-off meeting>> When: 5:15-8 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 1>> Where: Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa, Bonita Springs>> Cost: $65 at the door>> Info: 687-5824 or www.gcvf.com The Tamiami Angel Fund, the new investor rocket created through the Gulf Coast Venture Forum, has made three significant investments in new companies, says its chairman, Tim Cartwright. The first, two years ago, was PlusOne Solutions, based in Orlando. The Fund invested $200,000 and its members put in an additional $285,000 of sidecar funding in the companys Series B Preferred Stock Offering, an option for members of the Tamiami Angel Fund. PlusOne provides training, background checks, certification and insurance verification for independent contractors with such companies as Sears and Samsung. The TAF then invested $415,000 in Wasabi, a restaurant concept offering a sushi conveyor belt in a highly colorful and energetic operation targeting the highest-traffic centers of the top 100 malls in the Unites States, says Mr. Cartwright. In addition to the money, the TAF also secured a board seat held by one of its members, formerly a senior officer at YUM Brands fast food, and now a key manger at AFC Enterprises, the current holding company of Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. Thats part of our original thesis, of investing both growth and intellectual capital, he adds. Finally, the TAF has invested $750,000 in Fracture, an online, Gainesville-based company that does digital framing for photos uploaded by customers from a smart phone or digital camera, and printed directly onto glass, Mr. Cartwright explains. The glass-engraved image is then shipped in special packaging, ready to be hung on the wall, and delivered in two to three days for $50 to $70, depending on the size of the frame. Among its contracts, the company is already working with a popular cruise line. Were fans, says Mr. Cartwright, who can talk about the technology required for the business with knowledgeable fluency. Our investments are driven by member interest, he notes. All of them are in business and making money. And the winners are

Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o this newspaper, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Sell High, Buy LowMost folks know the adage to buy low and sell high, but many dont realize that you can also make money by reversing that. Sell high and then buy low, and youre engaging in shorting. Heres how it works: Imagine that Acme Explosives (ticker: KBOOM) has gone public. While others may be excited about the company, you have little faith in it and expect the stock to sink. You call your brokerage (or visit its website) and say that you want to short KBOOM. The brokerage will borrow shares from a KBOOM shareholders account and sell them for you. Then, assuming the share price does drop, youll later cover your short, buying shares on the market at a lower price to replace the ones you borrowed. If you shorted KBOOM at $80 and covered when it fell to $60, you made $20 per share (less commissions). This process may seem crazy, but its legal and commonly done. Shorting can help you profit in any kind of market. If the market takes a big drop, your shorts will likely fall, boosting your portfolios performance. Even in a strong market, a stinker of a company will often fall in value, rewarding those who bet against it. Shorting has a big downside, though. If the stock price rises, you lose. With shorts, you can earn only up to 100 percent, since a stock price cant fall lower than zero. But if your shorted stock keeps rising, your downside is theoretically unlimited. Since you can actually lose more than 100 percent of your money, you need to keep a very close eye on your shorts. More reasons to reconsider shorting: Shorting bucks the overall long-term upward trend of the market. Sometimes companies youre sure are overvalued just keep rising anyway. And if you short a company, youll have its management working against you to make the company succeed, perhaps with new financing, partnerships or products. Shorting can be effective, but its only for seasoned investors. Many experienced investors do very well without it. Penny DangersI bought 20,000 shares of a certain stock when it cost $0.02 or less per share, and things did not go well. OK, so I didnt lose much, but thats still a few hundred dollars that would have been better invested in some other stocks. The companys technology, converting biowaste into industrial products, was very interesting, but the company just seemed to disappear. I also bought into another penny stock, but after reading articles at Fool.com and elsewhere that recommended staying away from penny stocks, I sold and netted a tidy profit. Less than an hour after I sold, the bottom dropped out! Boy, did I get lucky on that one. I felt sorry for the people who bought my shares. Dave, onlineThe Fool Responds: Penny stocks are indeed dangerous. They can lure you with exciting technologies or cures for cancer, but they typically havent turned their potential into profits yet, and that often never happens. Theyre easily manipulated and volatile, too, as you witnessed. Youre right that its best to park your money in more proven stocks that can grow with less risk.Based in New York, I was once known as Bell Atlantic. I took the name you know today in 2000 when I merged with GTE. (My name is a mash-up of where the earth and sky meet and the Latin word for truth.) I specialize in broadband, wireless and wired communication services, with my wireless network serving more than 94 million customers in the U.S. My history features many mergers and spinoffs. For example, I bought MCI and Alltel in recent years. I rake in more than $110 billion annually and employ more than 180,000 people. Who am I? Meet Cliffs Natural ResourcesFew people seeking exciting stocks will think of iron-ore and coal miner Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE: CLF), but they should. Cliffs is the largest producer of iron-ore pellets in North America. Its true that coals future isnt burning as brightly as it used to, given environmental concerns and the rise of alternative energy sources. But most of Cliffs coal mines produce metallurgical coal, used in making steel, and not thermal coal, used to produce electricity. Demand for steel should be with us for a long time and should grow as our global economy gets back on its feet. Boding well for Cliffs is Chinas recent plans to spend $280 billion on infrastructure. A global recovery might take a while, as some steel companies are shutting down plants due to weak demand from markets such as Europe. For patient investors, though, Cliffs Natural Resources offers a lovely reward a dividend that recently yielded 6.4 percent. Better still, it has been hiking that dividend considerably in recent years. There are risks, of course, such as the companys rising debt levels and the chance of a prolonged global economic slump. Cliffs stock also appears considerably undervalued, recently trading with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 4, which is far below its five-year average of 14. Cliffs appears to be a bargain of a stock thats not being fully appreciated by the market. Founded in 1859 and headquartered in Ohio, Im a world leader in self-service equipment and security systems. (You may know me from my voting machines, but as of 2009, Im mostly out of that business.) My safes made it through the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. I was a pioneer in drive-up banking and ATMs and have sold pneumatic tube delivery systems. I even developed tear-gas defense systems for banks. In World War II, I armor-plated military aircraft. My technology is protecting the Hope Diamond at the Smithsonian today. I rake in about $3 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Diebold) The NAV ScoopQWhats a mutual funds NAV? H.T., Topeka, Kan.AThe letters stand for net asset value, which is the per-share value of a mutual fund.Mutual fund prices dont fluctuate during the day as stock prices do. Since funds are composed of many different securities, fund companies wait until the end of trading each day, and then add up the current market value of all their holdings. They then subtract the funds expenses for the day, such as commissions paid. The result is divided by the number of shares of the fund that exist. Voila the NAV. Its best not to evaluate a funds performance via its NAV, though, as funds will separately pay out income (such as dividends) and realized capital gains to shareholders. Focus instead on a funds total return. ***QAre stocks or savings bonds better for kids? S.R., Pensacola, Fla.AThe stock market is best for long-term investments of at least five, if not more, years. If its short-term money needed in a few years for college, then safer, less volatile investments such as savings bonds or CDs can give you a modest return and minimize losses.For long-term money, though, consider stocks, which have outperformed bonds and CDs over most long periods. An index fund is a great way to start with stocks. You might also invest at least a little money in the stock of a few companies that your children know, such as McDonalds or Hasbro. Then you can follow the fortunes of the companies together, as they learn about the stock market. (The Motley Fool owns both stocks, and its newsletters have recommended them.)

The way some people worry about their weight or hair or shape, I worry about my epidermis. Its too sensitive, for starters. I blush at anything naughty jokes, nudity, the weather report and just about every skincare product on the market makes me flush. Thats not all. I break out at odd moments, days when it seems impossible to point to any one problem. In my quest for perfect skin, I have tried everything: antibiotics and Chinese herbs; masks made of oatmeal or egg yolks; acupuncture; and dermatology. Nothing worked. For the longest time I shook my fist at the sky and cursed my bad karma. Just when I had given up hope of ever finding a solution, I read an article that said skin problems are often food-related. So I started keeping a food journal. I did an allergy test and eliminated common skin-upsetting food triggers. Lo and behold, I discovered the problem: dairy products. I started cutting everything dairy from my diet milk, yogurt, chocolate and my skin improved dramatically. Of course, these happen to be some of my favorite foods and it hasnt been easy. But now I know that if I toe the dietary line, Ill have clear skin. After all that searching, the solution was deceptively simple. So when my friend Susie, who has a penchant for dating unavailable men, told me about her latest love drama, I immediately had the sense that I knew what was going on. I put on a pot of water for tea while she railed against her bad love karma. Why does this keep happening to me? Am I cursed? Of course youre not cursed, I said. Youre just having a bad run. But as I patted her hand and stood to fill our cups, I realized how similar this story sounded to her last romantic disaster. In fact, it was exactly the same story, right down to the guy and his girlfriend. Susie looked at me with big, sad eyes. I just dont understand. Why doesnt he like me? The question wasnt whether or not he liked her. Of course he liked her. They had been exchanging flirty e-mails for months. Sometimes they went for drinks and shared long, intimate discussions. Once they made out in a bar. The problem was that he was unavailable. Like, had a girlfriend unavailable. Like, was in the process of moving in with his girlfriend. In the way that dairy upsets my system, this guy and guys like him was clearly bad for Susie. As it turns out, her romantic problems are just like the complications with my skin: diagnosable. Susie is smart, sophisticated and beautiful. Shes kind and nurturing, funny and sweet. She has a lot to offer a man. The problem isnt that shes not a great catch, but that the men she chooses arent worth her time. In the way that Ive learned to avoid milkshakes and Kraft singles, Susie needs to cut men who already have girlfriends out of her romantic diet. If she gave it a try, shed see its the simplest way to a clear heart. I p t l i c artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

Corkscrew sanctuary provides monthly series of oil painting classes Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary begins hosting a monthly series of oil painting classes on Tuesday, Nov. 6. The class will consist of four workshops each month, November-March. The first two sessions each month will take place indoors in the Blair Audubon Center; the last two will be in a private area within the sanctuarys ancient bald cypress forest not open to the public. Instead of learning to paint typical Florida beach landscapes, students will have the opportunity to absorb this gentle, pristine wilderness, and depict it in their own way on canvas, says instructor Sherry Collier. Ultimately, I hope to help them develop a hobby they can keep forever. Ms. Collier discovered her passion for painting after decades of working as a chemist, and then an attorney, receiving multiple degrees along the way. She began painting after she moved to rural England with her husband. Although primarily self-taught, she also studied at the Kent Institute of Art and Design in Canterbury, UK. Now a resident of Sanibel Island, Ms. Collier focuses on representational art in her landscape and wildlife paintings. Registration for a four-session class is $125 and includes all supplies and admission to the sanctuary, which is in the heart of the western Everglades, northeast of Naples, 15 miles from I-75 on Immokalee Road. Two time slots will be offered each class day: 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and 1:30-4:30 p.m. In November, January, February and March, classes will be held every Tuesday. December classes will be held on Thursdays. Reservations are required. Call 348-9151, ext. 102. COURTESY PHOTOSherry Collier at work in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 1-7, 2012 young girl standing in front of a swing set. She looks as though shes been trying to dig to the core of the earth, because her legs, hands and previously pristine outfit are slathered with mud. The cover of All Fall Down also in black and white shows her maybe 50 years later, in a pose thats equal parts bad-ass rocker chick and sophisticated woman. Her midriff is bare, as is her left shoulder. She holds a lit cigarette in her right hand and looks as if she could flick the ashes, or the entire cigarette, even, in your direction. After all, fire and pyromania have been very good to Ms. Colvin. Her biggest hit, which won a 1998 Grammy for Song of the Year and another for Record of the Year, is Sunny Came Home, about a woman who came home/with a vengeance, declaring, Its time for a few small repairs. Those repairs included setting the house on fire. In her memoir, Ms. Colvin describes how she wrote the song, explaining how she was inspired by the cover art: Julie Speeds painting of a woman standing in front of a prairie, lit match in hand. She writes: Wasnt that me, really, a girl setting the prairie on fire? Far, far in the distance, on the horizon, there was a very large fire and when we applied A Few Small Repairs to the fiery landscape painting, the effect was, to us, a riot. Whatever repairs that woman was making were neither few nor small. The memoir begins with a firethemed prologue, recounting various fires Ms. Colvin has ignited. Her opening lines: Who doesnt have a bit of pyromania in them? Theres something thrilling about making fire its primal, right? She goes on to recall a fire she set as a child on the South Dakota prairie, as well as another when she was older and attempting to burn photos of a guy shed been in love with. (That fire wound up melting the synthetic carpet underneath the cookie tin of burning pictures.) And her chapter names are all phrases from the lyrics of Sunny Came Home. She writes about her romantic problems and struggles with depression and alcoholism. She relays incidents from her up-and-down career, such as the time Ol Dirty Bastard of Wu-Tang Clan interrupted her acceptance speech at the Grammys. We only made it a few steps onstage, though, when our moment of glory was hijacked, she writes. Ol Dirty Bastard chose this particular moment to storm the stage and rant about not having won an award earlier that night. He was shaking his fists and yelling about what, we had no idea, because we couldnt understand a word, being behind him. The only thing I could decipher was, Wu-Tang is for the children! The next day I received the biggest bouquet of flowers from Ol Dirty Bastard with a note that read, Sorry for messing up your night, Love, Ol Dirty Bastard. Thats something not just anyone can lay claim to. She also writes about discovering the guitar as a young girl and falling in love with music through the songs of Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro and The Beatles. She performed with various groups before realizing she was best when it was just her, her guitar and her voice. And she writes about composing Diamond in the Rough early in her career, which helped her discover her voice. Memoirs aplentyWhen Ms. Colvin hits the stage in Florida, she wont be the only one there one with a memoir. Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart have recently released one too. Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock & Roll ($27.99, It Books/HarperCollins) hit bookstores Sept. 18. In it, the sisters take turns telling the story of their rise to rock fame with their early hits such as Barracuda, Magic Man, Straight On, Even It Up, Kick It Out and Crazy On You. They pull no punches about how they struggled to be respected as musicians in a male-dominated industry that saw female singers as sex objects. The book, which was written with Charles R. Cross, has a conversational tone, as if the sisters sat down and talked about their lives with Mr. Cross. The Wilsons book and Ms. Colvins join a gushing river of recently published rock memoirs. The same day Kicking & Dreaming came out, so did Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir ($26, Atria Books). Soon after, gritty R&B/soul singer Bettye LaVette released hers, A Woman Like Me ($26.95, Blue Rider Press), co-written with David Ritz. And the same publisher released Neil Youngs Waging Heavy Peace ($30, Blue Rider Press). October saw the release of more rock memoirs: Pete Townshends Who I Am: A Memoir ($32.50, Harper), Rod Stewarts Rod: The Autobiography ($27, Crown Archetype) and Light & Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page ($26, Crown). The publisher of Light & Shade calls it an oral autobiography, because the bulk of the book is conversations with Mr. Page, the Led Zeppelin guitarist, and writer Brad Tolinski. Gregg Allmans memoir, My Cross To Bear, ($27.99, William Morrow), written with Alan Light, was released in May and made the New York Times Bestseller List. The prose sounds as if Mr. Allman is sitting across from you in an easy chair, telling stories from his past. He talks about exploits with his brother Duane and about how he came to write various songs. (He scratched the lyrics to Whipping Post on an ironing board with burnt-out matchsticks because he couldnt find paper and pen, he says.)Life a catalystThe book that might have motivated musicians to write their memoirs and publishers to seek them out is Keith Richards Life ($29.99, Little Brown and Company). Released two years ago, it made the bestseller lists of the New York Times and USA Today and won the 2011 Norman Mailer Prize for biography. It was co-written by James Fox, a journalist friend of Mr. Richards who interviewed him continuously over the course of five years, turning his spoken words into written prose. As a hardcover, Life sold more than a million copies worldwide in less than a year, according to The New York Times. It experienced a renaissance when released in paperback in May 2011. Most musicians memoirs might not reach the success of Mr. Richards in terms of copies sold, but they do provide a behind-the-scenes look at musical influences, finding ones voice, touring, recording and creating songs. For those who make a living making music, music is their life. As Ms. Colvin writes: Music heals me, answers my questions, soothes my agony, fires my ambition, creates and intensifies my joy. I was born loving music and, I believe, born to be a conduit for it. MEMOIRSFrom page 1 Here are some excerpts from musicians memoirs about their careers and their craft:>> Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page in Light & Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page, writing about why he thinks Stairway to Heaven has endured for close to four generations: When one listens to records, they always come up with their own concepts and vision, and Stairway really allows for that. The fact that we printed (the lyrics) on the inner sleeve demonstrates what we thought of the song. But even with the lyrics printed on the sleeve of each album and CD, people still came up with their own interpretations. Thats wonderful. >> Ann Wilson in Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock & Roll, writing about her sister joining Heart and dealing with sexism: I had always wanted Nancy in the band, but there was an unintended result that was also bene cial to our marketing: The idea that our band had two sisters in it became part of our calling card and changed forever the way we were perceived. There were plenty of bands with a female singer, but in that era it was extremely rare for a band to have two women, rarer still for one of them to play guitar, and almost unheard of for them to be sisters. The sister act jokes started immediately. As a veteran of clubs, I was used to sexist and sexual comments, but it was hard to watch Nancy suffer them. She was also asked every night if her guitar was really plugged in, or if she really knew how to play it. >> Shawn Colvin, writing about the craft of songwriting in Diamond in the Rough: A Memoir: Writing is like a sport. You have to show up, and you have to practice. Yes, there are times that are more or less convenient, and there are times when you are more or less motivated. But its also about showing up. Some days the lyrics just start to come out of an unconscious part of you. Other times, youre so conscious of them not coming out that you want to scream. And sometimes you do. Scream. But as long as you keep making yourself available to the music and the emotions you ll it with, good things can happen. >> Gregg Allman in My Cross to Bear, re ecting on inspirations of songwriting: Sometimes you hear somebody say something and you can get an idea for a song from that Another way is you can see something happening or going on with somebody you know, and its really (messed) up. Maybe you know somebody who really cares for another person, but that person has no idea of it, and you cant say anything about it. All these things can inspire a song. I dont think you can put a time limit on songwriting, but a lot of people do that. They start it, they got a verse, and they want to nish it that night. I let it ooze out, man. Its like some people squeeze too hard on the toothpaste tube. If I squeeze too hard on a song, it will sound contrived. Shawn Colvin and Heart>> When: 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9 >> Where: The Barbara B.

Absolutely nothing can go wrong, declares a character in Florida Repertory Theatres Lend Me a Tenor. And we laugh, because we know that thats as good as a guarantee that utter mayhem will ensue. Up to that point, things havent exactly been going well, and they then continue to unravel at an accelerated rate. Thats the nature of farce: misunderstanding piled upon misunderstanding, mistaken identities, absurd situations that grow only more absurd and plenty of slamming doors. Set designer Jim Hunter gives us plenty of classic art deco doors that slam on a regular basis in a luxurious hotel suite in 1930s Cleveland. Mr. Hunter has designed a gorgeous lush set, with purple flocked wallpaper, a chandelier and, yes, six doors. World-famous Italian opera tenor Tito Merelli (David Breitbarth) is coming to perform for the Cleveland Grand Opera Companys anniversary gala. Because Tito is a known womanizer and alcoholic, Saunders (Craig Bockhorn), the companys general manager, assigns young Max (Michael Satow) to be the stars keeper. Hes to make sure that Tito stays sober and away from women, and to ensure that he makes it to the opera to sing his role as Othello. Of course, everything goes wrong. An opera-loving pesky bellhop (an ingeniously comedic Jason Parrish) wants Titos photograph. Maxs girlfriend/sort of fiance (she hasnt said yes yet) Maggie (Lindsay Clemmons) also wants his autograph. Titos co-star, Diana (Kate Hampton), wants connections that will allow her to sing at the Met. And Julia (Kate Young), chair of the opera board, simply wants to bask in Titos presence. None are immune to his Italian charm, and all three women wouldnt mind bedding him, either. Ms. Young has a great scene where she throws herself onto the sofa, flashing plenty of leg like a brazen vixen. Her gown and headdress which, as Saunders says, make her resemble the Chrysler building are very much of the era, thanks to costume designer Roberta Malcolms keen eye. But when Tito shows up at the hotel, his wife is with him, and the two are in the throes of a full-fledged fight, complete with shouting and slamming doors. Carrie Lund, as Titos wife, Maria, channels her inner Sophia Loren for this one, delivering her lines with perfect wryness. Mr. Breitbarths Tito is overworked and has overly indulged in women, alcohol and food. (The two also played husband and wife in Florida Reps production of Rumors, a Neil Simon farce, last season.) Maria, so fed up with Titos womanizing and his neglect of her, threatens: Some morning youre a-gonna wake up, and youll be a soprano! Director Chris Clavelli keeps the pace brisk and the mayhem merry. This is a terrific ensemble, adept at both physical and verbal humor, with not a weak link in the bunch. Mr. Parrish, especially, proves the adage that theres no such thing as a small role. Though his bellhop character isnt on stage often, he makes the most of it. The audience laughed uproariously throughout, sometimes so much so that actors lines couldnt be heard, especially in Act II. Mr. Satow is perfect as a young Max: endearing, awkward and anxious to please, the classic Neil Simon/Woody Allen young man. Maggie, as the starstruck young woman, plays her with believable naivete. And as if you hadnt laughed enough throughout the evening, the cast performs the entire farce all over again at curtain call (a condensed version, of course) in a madcap two minutes. The play deals with mistaken identities and mirror images, and while some are obvious, there are others the audience might not have picked up on. In the play, the Cleveland Grand Opera Company is celebrating its 15th anniversary; Lend Me a Tenor is the first play in Florida Reps 15th anniversary season. The set also has two pentagon-shaped Art Deco beveled mirrors one on either side of the set. Its the exact shape Florida Rep is using for its anniversary logo this year. I saw a local production of Lend Me a Tenor a few seasons ago, and it fell flat. It wasnt even half as funny. This cast had me laughing continuously. The only thing that made me feel uncomfortable is one of the plays major plot points: both Max and Tito dress up in blackface to portray Othello, the Moor, for the opera Otello. This was common in the 1930s and for decades later: Opera, theater and television would often use Caucasian actors for African-American, Latino and Asian characters. One has to wonder why the playwright, Ken Ludwig, would feel the need to present two characters in blackface as objects of humor. (Tenor was first performed in 1986; its a shame Mr. Ludwig hadnt figured out a better way to have two men mistaken for each other.) While there are no spoken racial jokes, the make-up for Max and Tito unfortunately looks very Amos-and-Andy-ish. But theaters cant change the plots of plays, and most attendees, I think, took it in stride, as a reflection of what the 1930s were like. Otherwise, this production of Lend Me a Tenor is a rollicking good time, stuffed with spit takes, double takes, funny walks, girls hiding in closets, arias, clever word play, sexual innuendo and all those slamming doors. In short, its inspired lunacy the makes you laugh, over and over again. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com DAVID DACK MAKI/SNAP FLASH PHOTO/ COURTESY PHOTOSAbove: Craig Bockhorn, Lindsay Clemmons and Jason Parrish in Lend Me a Tenor.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A sudden change of heart by a colleague might create some momentary uncertainty. But stay with your original decision and, if necessary, defend it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Rely on a combination of your sharp instincts along with some really intense information-gathering to help you make a possibly life-changing decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Instead of worrying if that new person in your life will stay or leave, spend all that energy on strengthening your relationship so it becomes walk-out resistant. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A sudden financial dry spell could reduce your cash flow almost to a trickle. But by conserving more and spending less, youll get through the crunch in good shape. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your work requires increased effort during the next few days. But it all will pay off down the line. Things ease up in time for weekend fun with family and/ or friends. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your genuine concern for others could prompt you to promise more than you can deliver. Its best to modify your plans now, before you wind up overcommitted later. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A situation that seems simple at first glance needs a more thorough assessment before you give it your OK. Dig deeper for information that might be hidden from view. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Careful: Right now, things might not be quite what they appear. Even the intuitive Crab could misread the signs. Get some solid facts before you act on your suspicions. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your energy levels are high, allowing you to complete those unfinished tasks before you take on a new project. A social invitation could come from an unlikely source. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might think youre helping, but unless youre asked for a critique, dont give it. If you are asked, watch what you say. Your words should be helpful, not hurtful. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your attempt at mediating disputes might meet some opposition at first. But once youre shown to be fair and impartial, resistance soon gives way to cooperation.

NoFun Size is amoral, unfunny and a chore to sit through. Worse, it takes some situations with children so nonchalantly that it becomes uncomfortable to watch. If ever a movie sends the wrong message to kids, this is it. For example, theres a scene in which a lost 8-year-old boy, Albert (Jackson Nicoll), goes into a convenience store. The clerk, Fuzzy (Thomas Middleditch), likes Albert so much that he asks Albert to join him on a mission, and Albert, who is mute, agrees. To be clear, I am not a parent. But how can anyone watch Fuzzy talk Albert into his car and not think horrible, awful things? Thankfully, nothing bad happens here, but its such a terrible message that you feel sorry for parents who need to convince their non-believing kids that its always a bad idea to get in a car with a stranger. No worries, though, because things get worse for Albert from there. To backtrack: High school senior Wren (Victoria Justice) is stuck babysitting little brother Albert on Halloween after their flaky mother (Chelsea Handler) ditches at the last minute to go to a party with her much younger boyfriend Keevin (Josh Pence). When Wren takes Albert trick-or-treating, the boy gets lost in a haunted house. With the help of geeky nice guys Roosevelt (Thomas Mann) and Peng (Osric Chau), Wren desperately searches for Albert, but gets tricked into going to a party by her friend April (Jane Levy), who wants Wren to hook up with hottie Aaron (Thomas McDonell). With a best friend who cares so little about Wrens family, Wren doesnt need enemies. She does, however, need director Josh Schwartz to keep her out of such cheap jokes as a motorized chicken humping a station wagon. Wren could also use a little brother who looks like he actually wanted to be found, because really, if Albert doesnt care about finding his family, neither will we. The last thing Wren needs is to realize what a stale, unrealistic clich it is for her to even consider the nice guy after a bad boy whom all the girls adore professes his love for her. Here are a few positives that keep Fun Size from being completely deplorable: Ms. Justice has good screen presence and is pretty, so better material could lead to her becoming a legit movie star. There are a few funny moments, including the timely use of Josh Grobans You Raise Me Up for a good laugh, and the movie is less than 90 minutes, which equates to a mercy killing. Does this outweigh the fact that theres condoned kidnapping, child abandonment, leaving the scene of an accident, shooting, drinking and driving, littering and destruction of personal property in a movie aimed at young teens? Absolutely not. Granted the film is rated PG-13, but parents, trust me: Keep your children and yourselves as far away from Fun Size as possible. LATEST FILMSFun Size i t s e b h danHUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Victoria Justice has starred in the childfriendly Nickelodeon TV series Zoey 101 and Victorious. Paranormal Activity 4 (Katie Featherston, Kathryn Newton, Matt Shively) A family in Henderson, Nev., notices strange things happening after the boy who lives across the street moves in with them. Many of the scares are predictable and cheap, leaving only the ending to enhance the little good this film does. It seems this low-budget franchise has run its course. Rated R.Argo (Ben Affleck, Alan Arkin, John Goodman) During the Iran Hostage Crisis that began in late 1979, CIA extraction specialist Tony Mendez (Affleck) concocts a scheme in which he and six hostages will pretend to be a film crew scouting for locations and passing through the country over the course of two days. This is one of the most suspenseful movies in quite some time, and one of the best of the year. Rated R.Here Comes The Boom(Kevin James, Salma Hayek, Henry Winkler) A disillusioned schoolteacher (James) takes up mixed martial arts to raise money to save his schools music program. It has some funny moments, but its too predictable and silly to be worth seeing. Rated PG. CAPSULES

F LORID A W RITERSFrom wilderness to paradise: Birdie Deweys South Florida Pioneering Palm Beach: The Deweys and the South Florida Frontier by Ginger L. Pedersen and Janet M. DeVries. The History Press. 128 pages. $19.99. The authors bring us on a delightful journey into the history of that part of Florida defined largely (in the 19th century) by the borders of Lake Worth. It truly was a frontier. Sketchily populated and without much of a commercial or transportation infrastructure, this beautiful but isolated region appealed to only the hardiest souls. Fortunately for the authors, they found a magnificent focal point in the lives and writings of two such pioneers, Fred and Birdie Dewey, providing readers with a general story of the regions gradual development anchored by a specific, personal story. The opening chapters outline the lineage of Mr. Dewey and Byrd Birdie Spilman, each of whose family gave rise to many prominent American citizens (Birdie was a great-niece of President Zachary Taylor). Ms. Pedersen and Ms. DeVries trace generations of the families activities in Kentucky and Illinois, where Fred became a notary public for the town of Salem (his later work included being a bank clerk). He and Birdie met in 1876 or 1877 and were soon married. He was 39; she was 21. They both loved animals, and as they never had any children, pets played a large part in their family life. Birdie, a welleducated book lover, became a productive, successful writer. In fact, the authors narrative of Fred and Birdie depends largely on three of Birdies published novels, all set in Florida, which Ms. Pedersen and Ms. DeVries treat as disguised autobiography. Fortunately, they bolster these sources with many others, rendering their autobiographical readings of the novels plausible. Freds physical discomfort in Illinois winters was one motivating factor in the couples decision to consider a relocating to Florida. More importantly, they were both adventurous, independent spirits full of energy and imagination, who wanted philJASONpkjason@comcast.net PEDERSON DEVRIES

Homesteading in an unsettled patch of Florida seemed to be just the right thing. After exploring several more northerly locations, the Deweys settled on the Lake Worth area. In treating the Deweys role as settlers, the authors detail the history of the region leading up to the Deweys arrival on the scene, then continue by stressing the hardships they had to face. Readers receive vivid images evoking the material culture of the time. Once committed to Lake Worth (the lake there was no town), the couple built several homes, bought and sold large tracts of property and generally did quite well for themselves. In the early decades of their Florida lives, they dealt with a remoteness and isolation that made it very difficult to obtain necessary supplies. Transportation was mostly along rivers and the lake. Merchants were few and far between. There was little social intercourse and no amenities of higher culture. For Birdie, this isolation was depressing. As the environs became more and more of an attraction, however, the population and supporting infrastructure developed slowly at fir st, but then in large leaps. Birdie kept up her writing, and her descriptions of the place helped promote greater interest. In time, the Deweys were part of a burgeoning social scene and participated in the economic activity that attracted more and more investors. Their first home, often not in regular use, become a place at which they entertained, salon-fashion, and helped generate a cadre of movers and shakers. As we know, Henry Flagler was among those who eventually followed the Deweys to the Palm Beach area, and his industry and risk-taking helped make the area bloom. Both Fred and Birdie led long lives, but since he was considerably older, he left Birdie a widow with a lot of years left to her. Until she died in 1942 at the age of 86, she had a second career as a speaker on environmental issues. During the 70 years after Birdies death, the contributions she and Fred had made to taming, developing and refining what had been a wild, desolate frontier fell into obscurity. But now, Ms. Pedersen and Ms. DeVries have given us a well-documented, highly accessible Birdies-eye view of the Deweys important role in shaping South Floridas history. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

That white thing? the boy shouted, pointing his thin arm frantically toward the sea. What is it? The fisherman squinted in the direction of his beached boat and toward the voice of his grandson. Farther in the distance, he saw a glistening yellowwhite column that connected a massive thunderhead to the dark roiling water beneath it. The sight was unexpected, like the view of the Parthenon perched against the blue sky of Athens. What is it, Papoo?! Setting his fishing net and shuttlecock aside, the grandfather walked to the edge of the beach. Its a waterspout. A whirlwind of water. What holds it up? What holds you up? the grandfather asked the boy. Is it a bad thing? Will it come here, Papoo? The wind plays games with the water. It stirs the sea to make it dizzy and then sucks it into the sky. All of it? The sea is too heavy. Dont worry. It is far away and the wind is at our backs. We will watch where it goes. What if you were fishing in your boat, Papoo? That would not be good. Have you seen one up close? I have been very lucky, my boy. The man crossed himself. No, I have not been so close. The little boy took his hand. They turned and walked back toward a wooden chair and the pile of yellow net. But what would you do? his grandson asked. The fisherman sat down, picked up his shuttle-cock and draped the fishnet over his lap. He looked back at the sea. There are things to do. Things my own Papoo taught me and his Papoo taught him. First, there are special holy words to say. Say them. I cant just say them. They are holy. Can I know them? They are very strong. They must be whispered. The boy brought his head in close until he felt stiff whiskers against his ear. He listened carefully until the old mans brown hands were again a blur amongst the tangle and whirl of string. Will you write them down for me? No. But, I wont remember. Youll remember when its time to remember. What else? Second, you can try to cancel it out. Which is more complicated. He took a split second to judge the boys reaction. Teach me. Teach me. Hot milk and cold tea, the old man said. The white cancels out the black and the cold cancels out the hot. You must stir it in the opposite direction of the spin and toss it in the water, over the stern, while heading into the wind. Keeping his eye on the waterspout, the boy leaned his body against the fishermans shoulder. The third thing you can do, if you are so close, and very brave Are you very brave? I think so. If you are in its path, if you cant outrun it, you must cut it with a knife. A knife that has never cut onions. Papoo! Look! The waterspout! Its gone! The old fisherman pushed his black cap up, off his forehead. Tomorrow it will rain fishes.

Grieving Widow Atop the StairsNICK KALVIN, NAPLESThe pretty, tan, busty blond gazed down her steep back stair, Convinced and joyful, she was a widow millionaire... At the bottom, an obese old man with blood-smeared hair, His crab-cane, skull, both legs, broken, just lying there. At the top, she scattered shards of red-clay earthenware To finger an upset plant, so her alibi prepare. She went back in the nice home, and her lay-back chair. I fell asleep, shed say, when my noon soap was on the air. She donned a white silk robe, some brief, fancy underwear, Clicked the tube on, sat a book, black coffee by her chair. Knew his daughter would soon come, (that dunce, the other heir). Amazingly, fell asleep, as if without a care. When dunce daughter rang the bell, at the homes front portiere, Blondie woke, but let it ring, rubbed her eyes, messed her hair. They hugged, took three drinks to the back deck near the stair. In mere minutes, EMS, fire truck, cops were all there. Days later, a detective thought the wife too debonair, Doubted she had napped during what happened on the stair. He knew hubbys fob watch stopped at 10, damaged by the stair, And the lab found, in one hand, some strands of long bleached hair. A Gathering of GullsBY HANK HEITMANN, FORT MYERS BEACHA Powerful Spring Storm Made major changes on the beach Strong tides ripped up clam beds And threw the bounty on the sand Clams by the thousands As far as the eye could see Waiting to be harvested By seagulls and their cousins Gorging with delight Eating till their frenzy subsided. Lifting and dropping the clams to open their new found treasure Creating a crescendo of squawks and squeals That reflected the excitement, With the lighthouse in the distance Its bright blinking light bouncing Off the broken shells, Like theatre lights flashing To advertise the feature of the day.

Only a small group of plants were popular, partly because of the look of the foliage, partly because they could tolerate the dry air of the home. Boston ferns, Maidenhead ferns, palms, jasmine, citrus trees, aspidistra and mother-in-law tongues (sansevieria) were most common. A houseplant required a large decorative pot, so ceramic jardinieres consisting of a pedestal and bowl were made by many companies like Roseville and Weller. Wooden pedestals to hold potted plants were made by Victorian cabinetmakers like Mitchell & Rammelsberg of Cincinnati, and companies like Bradley and Hubbard of Meriden, Conn., made metal plant stands. Because fewer plant stands were made than more common furniture forms like chairs, it is hard to find an interesting vintage stand. Prices are high. Q: About 25 years ago, I bought a modern-looking side table just because I liked it. The other day I noticed that its signed Johan Tapp. What do you know about him? A: Johan Tapp (1888-1939) was a Dutch designer. His furniture designs, many with a midcentury modern look, were apparently manufactured and sold by various companies. Today his pieces can sell for $200 to $2,000 or more. Q: I have a pyrography-decorated wooden wall plaque of five kittens. Its about 12-by-8-inches. On the back, its marked Flemish Art Company, New York and Can you tell me anything about it or its value? A: The word pyrography means writing with fire. Its sometimes called pokerwork because the design is burned into the wood with a thin poker-like tool. The earliest examples were done in China more than 2,000 years ago. The technique became popular in the United States in the late 1800s, when a method of coloring the designs by using benzoline was developed. By the early 1900s, boxes, candlesticks, plaques, novelties and furniture were being decorated with pyrographic designs. The Flemish Art Co., also known as Flem-Ar-Co, was the major producer of pyrographic items in the United States. The term Flemish art is sometimes used generically to refer to any pyrographic work. The company was in business in the late 1800s and early 1900s and sold finished pieces, KOVELS: ANTIQUES Vintage plant stands worth some serious green I i k D m w terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com Dedicated to the Sheer Joy of Dining and Imbibing at Naples Finest 239-261-4332 2555 Tamiami Trail N Naples Fl. 34103 www.naplesfujiyama.com Chef Junji Hijikata Celebrating 28th Year Anniversary and Promotion as Manager of Fujiyama Steak House and Club Sushi$39.95 DINNER FOR TWO TEPPAN DINNERChoose from the following:NY Strip Steak & ShrimpNY Strip Steak & ChickenPork Strip Steak & ShrimpShrimp & ScallopsClub Sushi Grilled Salmon Dinner and Miso Soup & Salad Dinner and Salad, Rice & Club Sushi Deluxe and Makimono CombinationVolcano Roll, Soup and SaladExpires December 20, 2012.

Pyrographic wall plaques usually sell for less than $10 today. Q: In 2001 my wife and I bought a Thomas Kinkade painting, The Garden of Prayer, and donated it to our church in memory of our parents. Along with the painting, we gave the church a certificate of limitation and authenticity and a warranty registration card that listed the painting as /4850 S/N Paper. Unfortunately, the church has lost these documents. Can the certificate and warranty be replaced? What is the value of the painting? A: You have a limited edition print of one of Thomas Kinkades most popular paintings. Limited edition prints were made in various sizes on either canvas or paper. Yours is on paper, which is less valuable than a print on canvas. The size of the print and how its framed also affect its value. Thomas Kinkade died earlier this year, but his company still is in business and can be contacted via its website, ThomasKinkade.com. Someone there can tell you about replacement documentation for the print. Prices for Kinkade prints have gone down in the past few years. Q: My gold-trimmed Limoges fish plate has two marks on the bottom. One is green with the words Limoges and France divided by a horizontal arrow. The other is red with the circled initials AK above CD. Outside the circle are, again, the words Limoges and France. Please tell me who made the plate, how old it is and what its worth. A: Its likely that the two marks on your plate were made by two different companies in Limoges: the green mark by the company that made the plate, and the AK/CD mark by the decorating firm. Experts think the AK stands for A. Klingenberg, and the CD for Charles Dwenger two decorating firms that may have merged in the mid-1890s. The mark appears on dishes made between abou t 1895 and 1910. Limoges fish plates the age and quality of yours sell for $150 or more.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 1-7, 2012 VINOTraditional holiday meal calls for creative wine pairingTheres no agonizing over what to eat for Thanksgiving or other holiday feasts, but selecting the right wines that pair with those rich and divergent flavors is a different matter. Whether your meal is traditional turkey or ham or something different such as seafood, there are great wines to serve as the perfect complement. Normally you would pair simple wines with complex foods, and complex wines with simple foods. But holiday feasts are a mixture of simple and complex dishes. Highly extracted reds made from cabernet sauvignon, merlot and their blends can clash with the fruit and acidity of turkey and the ubiquitous cranberry sauce. Also, the rich and complex wines made from the chardonnay grape will fall flat with the pairing of gravies and heavy starches. That doesn't mean you absolutely cant serve any of these, but it will depend on the wines intensity and flavor components. If you are looking for a white wine, try a Rhone varietal like marsanne. Fuller bodied and with a higher alcoholic content (13 percent or higher), a marsanne will pair well with creamy sauces and complex flavors. This wine is a good substitute for an oaky chardonnay, as it will complement rather than conflict with the complex flavors of ham and lamb, crab and lobster. Its also very good with cheeses and chicken dishes. Alsatian riesling and gewurztraminer have long been favorites of mine to have with festive holiday foods. Because the Alsatian diet is so diverse not to mention meat-centric these drier-style wines perfectly accompany turkey and other roasted meats. The gewurztraminer typically has aromatic tropical fruit aromas, with flavors of apricot and pear, usually ending with a citrusy mineral finish. Try this with sausage and roasted pork dishes, as well as turkey. The drier Alsatian riesling is fuller bodied than that from other regions and can stand up to the piquant richness that adorns our holiday tables. Suggested pairings include seafood, chicken, duck and ham dishes, as well as fuller-bodied choucroute and roasted turkey with all the trimmings. For a special touch, champagne will work well with roasted turkey or chicken. Look for a vintage champagne that has a little more body. Flavors will range from nutty and honeyed to those of fresh baked bread, mushrooms and a touch of citrus. The effervescence is great for clearing the palate between dishes. If you want a red wine, there are several that work well with a diverse menu. Grenache is a multi-purpose wine when it comes to the holidays. Typical flavors include fruit-forward berry flavors with spicy undertones, light tannins and a smooth long finish. Grenache is especially suited for lamb and pork dishes because of the spiciness and balanced tannins. Pinot noir is another favorite this time of year. It is versatile in flavor so it can pair with a wide range of foods. Seafood dishes, especially salmon and tuna, are good with pinots, because their higher fat content balances with the light tannin structure of light to medium bodied pinot noir. Full-bodied pinot noir is exceptional with roasted duck, chicken and quail, as well as meat dishes including lamb, veal and pork loin. Remember, however, that the most important factor at a holiday meal is to enjoy the company.Wine Picks of the Week: Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha ($15): Rich purple-red in color and made from old-vine grapes, Tres Picos is full of blackberry, strawberry and raspberry aromas and flavors. It finishes with a touch of orange spice. Cave de Tain Crozes Hermitage 2010 ($18): 100 percent marsanne grapes from the northern Rhone district of France, this opens with citrus and flowers on the nose, followed by melon and tropical fruit flavors with a touch of spice at the end. Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche 2010 ($12): Primarily grenache with various other grapes, the fresh ripe bouquet of cherry and plum opens into a well balanced palate with a touch of spice and tannin, ending in a medium finish. Gruet Blanc de Blanc 2007 ($25): An outstanding sparkling wine from New Mexico, made by a traditional French champagne house. Youll find aromas and flavors of pears, apples and citrus combined with classic toasted almonds and an elegant mineral finish. Trimbach Riesling Alsace 2008 ($18): This classic opens with a nose of white peach and apple, meshing with citrusy flavors. It has good acidity and a mineral finish. This one is very consistent quality from year to year, as well as a great value for Alsatian riesling.

EVOO takes an entirely different approach. Although its name short for Extra Virgin Olive Oil befits its Italian roots, neither the menu nor the decor scream Now thats Italian! This is a much more subtle, sophisticated take on a vibrant cuisine that doesnt always get its due. The restaurant itself has an understated ambience, adorned in rich browns and beiges, the palette of the autumn fields of Tuscany or Umbria. An open kitchen that flows into the bar takes up most of one side of the room. Lighting is low and brooding. High, industrial ceilings lend a modern feel and give the smallish space a bit of breathing room. Alas, that space is more mirage than reality. Tables are wedged in close together so close that a server bumped into the back of my companions chair several times as he attempted to wriggle between it and a nearby table and the tables for two (or four) along the banquette are downright miserly both in tabletop real estate and in space allotted between parties. That might be fine if you wind up next to people with whom you are sympatico; not so great, however, if its a noisy party of four. Fotunately, we wound up with a nice couple seated on one side and no one on the other side, which made it feel a little less claustrophobic. Slices of rustic bread arrive with the menus, just right for dipping in the olive oil that sits in bottles on each table. The menu is on the smallish side (nine appetizers and 10 entrees), which I assume ensures that ingredients are fresh. Based on what we sampled, that appears to be the case. A Bibb lettuce salad ($11) contained a generous mound of lettuce topped with dried cranberries, candied walnuts and creamy blue cheese dressing with lots of lumps of tangy cheese. The nights soup special white bean with bacon and carrots ($8) was thick and well seasoned, full of beans and the flavors of fall. Florida snapper piccata (somewhat pricey at $30) consisted of a good-sized fillet topped with capers and a full-bodied sauce paired with a heavenly mound of buttery mashed potatoes and a good-sized portion of al dente green beans. A 5-ounce filet mignon ($27) hadnt much flavor bey ond the herbed butter melted atop it. Grilled asparagus were excellent, while the oversized pile of shoestring potatoes werent quite crisp enough. Personally, I prefer their stouter brethren, steak fries. For dessert we shared an excellent warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce ($8.50). The crust was tender and flavorful, the apples cooked to just the right degree. The Royal Scoop ice cream and caramel sauce added just the right grace notes. I suspect that the restaurant was short on help on this night, as our server juggled six tables at one point. Thats far too many in anything beyond a diner, especially if the server is expected to open and pour wine, take orders and ensure that meals are going smoothly. Ours managed much of this, but we had some lengthy periods during which we were left on our own. We werent told there was a half-price special on bottles of wine (we overheard our server telling the table next to us). Had we known, we might have ordered a bottle. We werent asked if we wanted a refill on drinks. No one came by to see if our meals were satisfactory until we were almost finished with our entrees. And we received our bill before anyone inquired whether we wanted dessert. To her credit, our server was friendly and warm whenever we did see her, and she gave us a $20 discount on our meal even though we didnt have the coupon. She did the same for our neighbors. Both bills also had a 20 percent gratuity added them. Ive never seen a tip automatically added at a restaurant unless it was a party of six or more, but perhaps it was done to ensure she was tipped on the full amount of the bill, rather than the discounted total. Whatever the case, it would have been nice if she had pointed it out, particularly since it was rather dark in the room (I suspect some customers will miss it and tip twice). EVOO manages to accomplish much of what it sets out to do, which is to serve high-quality fare thats simple and fresh. A little polish on the service and a bit more space in which to enjoy the experience would bring both aspects up to the same standard as the food. karenFELDMAN firstname.lastname@example.org EVOO>> Hours: Lunch served 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Saturday; dinner served 5 p.m.close Monday through Saturday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $8-$12; entrees, $23-$36 >> Beverages: Full bar >> Seating: At the bar, conventional tables, banquettes, a few outdoor tables >> Specialties of the house: Rustic Italian bistro fare >> Volume: Moderate to high >> Parking: Free lot >> Website:www.evoo-bistro.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 13240 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 444-2020 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLY A petite filet mignon with asparagus and shoestring potatoes.
