COMMENTARYPicking up peaceIn the American catalogue of heroic suicide, the most singular image is that of the soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save his friends. Such a sacrifice is widely embraced as virtuous by Americans (including me) and Western Europeans. Which makes me wonder what cultural imperatives exist to compel heroic suicide in other cultures, where the sacrifice is made to destroy rather than to save others. Muslim self-sacrificers form the prominent contemporary version of this phenomenon: suicide as heroic destruction, rather than suicide as heroic preservation. If such acts arent widely embraced by the Muslim world, they arent abhorred widely or publically enough, either, by that world. Their practitioners often seem to have a few things in common: They come from environments of need, insult or anger; theyve experienced education narr owly, as religion; and theyre relatively young. In the case of the terrorists who acted out their sacrifices on Sept. 11, 2001, most were in their 20s and most were from Saudi Arabia. But such acts have not been limited to them or their causes. I began thinking about this recently when a friend and mentor, Dr. Robert Hilliard, presented me with a gift that would be mine, he said, if I could lift it: a collection of more than 250 New York Times front pages. They date from 1851, when Millard Fillmore succeeded Zach Taylor as president, to 2012, when Barack Obama won his second term as president. The book weighs so much it has gravity, sucking in big questions the way the sun sucks in big asteroids. For example, what in the world do Zach Taylor, Millard Fillmore and Barack Obama have in common, anyway? Theres an answer, it turns out: Each has led a nation willing to accept heroic suicide as a worthy act for the preservation of somebody else, usually in war but never for the destruction of somebody else. Without Dr. Hilliards gift, this would not have occurred to me. I opened the book first to the year 1924, the year before he was born in Brooklyn, the son of a woman from Paris who believed deeply in education (not narr owly def ined), and a man from Russia who believed deeply in working seven days a week in the familys small shop to survive the Great Depression. The front-page headlines in the Great Gray Lady for Sunday, June 1, of that year included 13 stories: three about robbery, kidnapping or murder; three or four about the actions of President Calvin Coolidge; one about Robert Fighting Bob La Follete, the progressive Republican senator from Wisconsin who was trying to boost the wages of rail workers through federal legislation; one about a Catholic bishop found guilty of heresy by his peers; one about lobbyists seeking the French vote (Dr. Hilliards mother, perhaps?) for New York state governor and presidential hopeful Al Smith, who promised to repeal prohibition and immigration laws, thus opening U.S. markets to French wine and food; and two about the Japanese and their disapproval of our trade policies and actions. One of those two headlines was this: Japanese Kills Himself Near Tokio Embassy; Hari-kiri Victim Assails Us, Asks Vengeance. A 40-something man had slit his abdomen crosswise and then upward in the classical way with a 6-inch dagger near the American embassy in Tokyo (spelled Tokio, then), leaving two letters behind, one to the American people and one to the Japanese empire, according to the Times report. To Americans he wrote, I request by my death the withdrawal of the Japanese exclusion clause because I greatly regret that your country, which has always advocated peace from a humanitarian viewpoint and has been known as a leader for peace throughout the world, enacted the Japanese exclusion clause in complete disregard of humanity. The indignation caused by this insult is impossible to overcome The exclusion clause prevented the liberty of entry, travel and residence for Japanese in the U.S. and thus it prevented robust trade, something wed guaranteed them in a gentlemens promise of 1911, the Japanese reportedly said. As self-sacrifices go, the mans suicide seems peaceful enough. But he left a second letter to his own people that called for his nation to rise to avenge the insult embodied in the action of America. That sounds like suicide aimed at the destruction of others in this case indirectly. And given what happened 17 years later at Pearl Harbor and after, when almost 5,000 Japanese pilots sacrificed themselves as kamikazes, it hardly seems innocent. When I mentioned this briefly to Dr. Hilliard, who joined the Army at 18, in 1944, and was wounded several times fighting in and after the Battle of the Bulge, he had this to say: The two different kinds (motivations/ justications?) of suicide attest to the role of cultural education (brainwashing/propagandizing) in ones upbringing. In other words, people will sometimes express their patriotism their heroism in self-sacrifices celebrated by their parents, aunts, uncles, teachers, friends or peers. And thats the reason Dr. Hilliard by career a playwrite, novelist and professor emeritus from Emerson College in Boston, but by nature and instinct a teacher who will never retire rarely attends events to honor veterans. Nor will he ever parade around in an old uniform with his medals. It tends to glorify war, he concludes. It can become an aggrandizement for those who think patriotism should be worn on ones sleeve, a reinforcement for the types who may not have been in a war and publicly wish they had been, but if they know anything about war, privately are glad they werent. So lets consider something new, with the 12th anniversary of 9/11 nearly upon us. Instead of martial action, perhaps the most heroic or patriotic sacrifice that any person of any culture might make in any era, is this: to put down war for good, by picking up peace forever. p m m T s w a rogerWILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

About a quarter of all the worlds prisoners are behind bars in the United States, a total of roughly 2 million people. It costs about $60 billion a year to imprison them. This vast prison-industrial complex has succeeded in reducing crime but is a blunt instrument. Prison stays often constitute a graduate seminar in crime, and at the very least, the system does a poor job preparing prisoners to return to the real world. Since 95 percent of prisoners will eventually be released, this is not a minor problem. In an essay in the journal National Affairs, Eli Lehrer sets out an agenda for reform geared toward rehabilitation, and the conservative group Right on Crime advocates a similar program. Most fundamentally, prisoners should be required to do what many of them have never done before, namely an honest days work. Fewer than a third of offenders hold full-time jobs at the time of their arrest, according to Lehrer. They wont acquire a work ethic in prison. University of Pennsylv ania Law School professor Stephanos Bibas notes that only about 8 percent of prisoners work in prison industries, and about 4 percent on prison farms. Labor unions and businesses have long supported restrictions on productive work by prisoners for fear of cheap competition, but their self-interested concerns shouldnt obstruct attempts to instill the most basic American norm in people desperately in need of it. Prisoners should be made to work, but be paid for it and rewarded if they are particularly diligent and skilled. As Bibas argues, some of the proceeds can go to restitution for victims, to paying for their own upkeep, and to support for their families. Lehrer notes that about 40 percent of ex-prisoners are rearrested within three years. The goal should be to reduce recidivism as much as possible. Offenders shouldnt be discharged without a photo ID. In the job market, they shouldnt be denied occupational licenses when the job in question has nothing to do with their crime. They should, if their crime wasnt too serious, eventually have it expunged from the records for most purposes. Ex-inmates out on parole or on probation should be monitored more closely. As Lehrer writes, Transition programs should increasingly involve random, unannounced home visits, subject exoffenders to round-the-clock electronic monitoring, require them to take random drug tests, and offer them swift and certain punishment for slip-ups. Playing against type, hang-em-high Texas has been a model of prison reform and innovative re-entry programs. It has sent fewer people to prison, while crime has continued to decline in the state. It has funded more slots for treatment for substance abuse and mental illness, and increased the use of drug courts, creating alternatives to prison. It has strengthened supervision of probationers and parolees, by reducing caseloads for officers and fashioning a system of swift and certain sanctions for violations. We have proved that we can lock a lot of people up. The challenge now is if we can do it more humanely and intelligently and, ultimately, create less work for the prison-industrial complex. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Suggested vacation reading for President Obama: Catch-22As the Obama family heads to their annual summer vacation on Marthas Vineyard, perhaps the president should take along a copy of Catch-22 for some beach reading. Joseph Hellers classic, satirical anti-war novel, published in 1961 and based on his experiences as a bombardier in World War II, is sadly relevant today, as Obamas wars, in Afghanistan and beyond, drag on. Hellers title refers to a fictional military rule that said you could get out of military duty if you were crazy, but if you requested relief from military duty, you were clearly sane, so you must serve. He wrote, There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that concern for ones own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr [a pilot in the novel] was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Barack Obama ran as the anti-war alternative when he was a primary challenger to Hillary Clinton, whose nomination as Democratic presidential candidate in 2008 was widely held to be inevitable. It was his Oct. 2, 2002, speech in Chicago where he declared his opposition to the imminent invasion of Iraq, calling it a dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics. As a U.S. senator, he pledged to filibuster any bill that granted retroactive immunity to large telecommunication corporations that cooperated with the Bush administrations warrantless wiretapping of U.S. citizens. And on his first day in office, you might recall, he vowed to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay. Has Obama ended the war in Iraq? Certainly not for the Iraqis. July was one of the bloodiest months there since the height of the insurgency against the U.S.-imposed Iraqi government. So far this year, more than 4,000 Iraqis have been killed, mostly by bomb blasts that targeted civilians, and close to 10,000 have been injured, in attacks by Sunnis against Shias or vice versa. On July 22, a military assault was launched against the Abu Ghraib prison, made notorious 10 years ago by the shocking photos of abuse of prisoners at the hands of their U.S. captors. Five hundred prisoners were freed in the course of the attack, including, reportedly, many senior al-Qaida leaders. Transparency International ranked Iraq the seventhmost corrupt government on the planet, narr owly edging out Sudan, Afghanistan, North Korea and Somalia. Thirteen U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan in July, including Spc. Caryn Nouv, a 29-year-old mother of two. Obamas embrace of the surveillance state is now well-known, following revelations from National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden. It was in December 2007 when Obamas Senate office issued a press release stating, Sen. Obama unequivocally opposes giving retroactive immunity to telecommunications companies and has cosponsored Sen. Dodds efforts to remove that provision from the FISA bill. Granting such immunity undermines the constitutional protections Americans trust the Congress to protect. Sen. Obama supports a filibuster of this bill, and strongly urges others to do the same. Months later, not only didnt he filibuster the bill, he voted for it. Now, President Obama is refusing to meet with President Vladimir Putin in Russia next month, since Putin granted Snowden temporary asylum there. Then theres Guantanamo. The hunger strike among up to 100 prisoners there, out of the total of 166, has just passed the six-month mark. The Pentagon is force-feeding many of them. Eighty-six have been cleared for release. A majority of the 166 have never been charged, with some held that way for more than 11 years. Despair is said to be rampant among them, so much so that they would rather starve themselves to death than endure more. I dont want these individuals to die, Obama said in April. So he has them violently force-fed to keep them alive, uncharged, with no end in sight. Even if the Obama administration releases two prisoners, a plan press secretary Jay Carney revealed last Friday, there will still be 164 prisoners languishing there. Before heading on vacation, Commander in Chief Obama gave a rousing speech to Marines at Camp Pendleton, Calif. Elsewhere, Pfc. Bradley Manning sat for another day of his sentencing hearing. Hellers protagonist in Catch22, Captain Yossarian, holds a wounded comrade, named Snowden, coincidentally, who dies in his arms. The experience cements Yossarians opposition to war. Bradley Manning, too, went to war, and hated what he saw. He took action, leaking documents to spark a national debate. Hellers depiction of war grim and stark was fiction, though based on his own experience. Obamas wars, his drone strikes, his war on whistleblowers, are all too real.

The amount of exercise middle school students get can directly affect their grade point average and enhance their academic performance. With that in mind, physical education teacher Sharon Hardman of Golden Gate Middle School came up with a plan for a Tweeny Fitness Lab and applied for a Connect With A Classroom grant to fund it. The money will provide training equipment for a na tional fitness test called a Fitnessgram to be used in all PE classes at Golden Gate Middle School. Students will have access to their test results online and will be able to share the information with their parents during student-led conferences at the school. In the weeks leading up to the test, the students will break into small groups and rotate thr ough several learning stations to learn the basics of strength training, cardiac conditioning, flexibility, body mass index and nutrition. Ms. Hardmans Connect With A Classroom grant request is just one example of how Collier County educators are utilizing the program that lets them apply for as much as $2,000 to fund innovative learning experiences for their students and to share best practices with other teachers. PNC Bank and Ann and Herb Rowe have funded the portal and the capacity to provide this service to teachers and the community via Champions For Learning (formerly the Education Foundation of Collier County). Lynne Bellivue teaches special needs students in kindergarten through grade five at Manatee Elementary School. Her grant request is for the purchase of LiveScribe SmartPens for use in her classroom. If the grant is fulfilled, Ms. Bellivue will be able to provide her students with special pens that record everything they say and write so they can re-listen to directions, go to a certain part of a sentence for the pen to read aloud and make decisions about what to write next. The pen will be used throughout the day so that students with disabilities can complete classroom activities independently without prompts from the teacher. STEM training at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida inspired teacher Molly Skudnig of Tommie Barfield Elementary School to write her STEM Kit grant request. Funding will enable her fourth-grade students to complete fun and stimulating projects related to science, technology, engineering and math. Among the projects Ms. Skudnig hopes to have her students work on: the Marshmallow Challenge, in which teams of students use uncooked spaghetti, string, tape and one large marshmallow and compete to see which group can build the tallest structure with the marshmallow on top; and a model garden design exercise in which they will use Popsicle sticks, felt, moss, string and various other supplies to build model gardens incorporating S.T.E.M. principles.How to helpAnyone can help fund Connect With A Classroom grant requests through Champions For Learning. All teacher requests are online at www.championsforlearning.org/CWACGrants (deadline for applications in the current grant cycle is Aug. 30). Donations earmarked to pay for all or part of any specific request are welcome, as are contributions to the Connect With A Classroom program in general. In addition, anytime a Collier County resident purchases a specialty Florida Educational License Plate, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to the Connect With A Classroom grant fund.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 Association 23,000 to 57,000 people in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties its not a moral failing. Its a distinct mental illness called hoarding disorder. At least one famous case dates from the 1930s in New York City, where the infamous hermit hoarders of Harlem, the Collyer Brothers, lived. In recent years, the hit A&E television program Hoarders raised awareness to an all-time high showing some of the most extreme cases. Hoarding is even politically correct. Its an equal opportunity kind of disease, said Marcia Monroe, vice president of clinical services for Central Florida Behavioral Health Network. But it was only this May when the American Psychiatric Association officially recognized hoarding disorder as a mental illness in an industry tome, the long-awaited fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, opening the door for more research and treatment tailored to people who suffer from hoarding. It used to be considered a type of obsessive compulsive disorder. Thats changed. Now its a distinct disorder with distinct treatments, defined by a persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions, regardless of their actual value, and other criteria. Treating hoarding disorderThe inclusion in the definitive psych manual was based on decades worth of research regarding hoarding, said Dr. Katharine A. Phillips, M.D., professor of psychiatry and human behavior at Brown University and chair of the work group responsible for including hoarding disorder in the DSM-5. For instance, one study showed that depression was a far more common symptom related to hoarding than obsessive-compulsive behaviors. Most hoarders dont meet the criteria for OCD, Dr. Phillips said. Even so, a hoarding disorder diagnoses could include symptoms of both depression and obsession, as well as anxiety and other mood disorders. Its like a kitchen sink of mental illnesses thats why it takes real intensive treatment over time, said Mark A. Chidley, a private practice licensed mental health counselor in Fort Myers. One of the few local mental health professionals who has made hoarding a specialty, he wrote Helping Hoarders: A Guide for Families, Counselors, and First Responders (2011). The mental health community is late coming to the party, said Mr. Chidley. Its really only been studied in an academic way and with some sincerity since the early 1990s. Even with all the research done in the last two decades, less is known about how to treat hoarding than other illnesses like drug addiction. Less treatment research has been done for hoarding than a lot of other serious and common psychiatric disorders, Dr. Phillips said. Nevertheless, some clinicians have had success treating it using cognitive behavioral therapy, a standard approach used for a variety of psychological disorders, to address how patients thinking influences their behavior. I think in general the best advice (for health-care providers) is to follow a manualized treatment that has some data supporting its efficacy, she said. Treatment for hoarding disorder could include helping patients develop more accurate beliefs about the value of all their stuff, so they can start to get rid of it. It may also include motivational interviewing to nudge hoarders toward seeking treatment. A lot of times they arent really interested in treatment, Dr. Phillips said. Its also important to distinguish between hoarding and just a little bit of a messy house or normal collecting, Dr. Phillips said. One of the things that makes it a disorder is the impact it has on those who suffer from it and the people in their lives. In the DSM-5 definition, we really tried to get across how it differs from normal collecting, she said. The effects of the new DSM-5 criteria for hoarding disorder are already rippling through the ranks of health-care providers in Southwest Florida and the United States. It will likely effect how some patients who hoard are diagnosed, and how theyre billed for services. The David Lawrence Center in Naples has plans to train staff about the disorder. It will also update electronic medical records to include new diagnostic and billing codes. We are now forming a focus group to begin a thorough and thoughtful evaluation of the DSM-5 changes, wrote Geralyn Poletti, director of access and outpatient services. This process will take several months and involve many staff members and departments. In our profession, a revision of this magnitude, which last took place in 1994 when the DSM-4 was originally published, is a large undertaking.Few services availableWhile health-care professionals are adjusting to the change, it leaves too few services for Southwest Floridians or their loved ones afflicted with hoarding, said Mr. Chidley. His hoarding support group meets twice a month on Tuesday evenings in Fort Myers. You can walk into it and theres no judgment or anything, said Kathleen Vereen, who is in recovery. Were there to help each other and support each other as we go through this. And thats so important. Because people dont understand hoarding. People think youre a pig and it has nothing to do with being a pig. Mr. Chidley doesnt know of another local group for hoarders, or another local clinic thats actively taking hoarding cases. And Im not enough, he says. A family might get them into Ruth Cooper or the David Lawrence Center if they get really bizarre, but those systems arent really there to address hoarding. Three years ago, Lee County started a Task Force on Hoarding, which drew together local agencies including animal services, fire, police, family and legal services, as well as private businesses that specialize in cleanup, and therapists like Mr. Chidley, for education and awareness about a disease they all have a stake in. In the absence of hoarding-focused mental health services, perhaps, officials from animal control agencies or workers from cleanup crews have begun to offer their own kinds of unofficial therapies. Averill Preman, who runs ACT (Accident Crime Trauma) Cleaning and Restoration with her husband and son, is on the Lee County Task Force. Her business specializes in compassionate cleanup services for hoarders throughout South Florida. Often in denial about the problem, her customers must show a desire to get help before her crew comes in to clean. Even then, shes careful, sorting out their most treasured items from the rest, and encouraging them to follow through with ongoing help. Out of roughly 20 inquiries a month, maybe one will want to start the cleanup process, she said. Very few people follow through to the end with the project. Its generally loved ones who are concerned and realize theres more to it than just throwing items away.A hoarders perspectiveWhen her disease was at its worst, Kathleen Vereen couldnt open her door or her blinds. She was too embarrassed. In the first few years after her husband died (the second husband she had lost), she began hoarding. After a few years, shed acquired a sizeable sanctuary of junk, but could still use the kitchen and bathroom in her condo. But by the end nothing worked and she was living amongst trash and mold. Ms. Vereen grew up on Long Island and moved to Florida about 25 years ago. She has worked as a nurses aide and a school bus driver, and is now retired. You realize theres something wrong, she explained. I showered and went to work. On my way home, Id say, OK, Im going to clean this up tonight. But I would get home, stop and get food, eat my dinner, go on the couch and that was it. After county officials discovered her hoard in 2009, she sought help and was diagnosed with depression. Lately, life for her has regained a sense of normalcy with the help of therapy and medication. She follows a routine, a set of rules, she said, getting up in the morning, taking the dog out, having coffee, reading the paper, and making her bed. Although she relapsed once and began hoarding again, after the death of a friend, Ms. Vereen went back to therapy meetings, determined not to let it happen again. When she was in early recovery from hoarding she loved to open the blinds, since they had been closed for so long. One of my big things was as soon as I got up in the morning, I opened the blinds, she said.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 NEWS A9 oclock, even if it was dark outside, I opened the blinds. Ms. Vereen has mixed feelings about hoardings newfound TV fame, with its jump-cuts to recoveries that appear instantaneous but actually take months or years. The upside, she concludes, is that it could lead to hoarders getting help before they are in the midst of total crisis, when walls crumble, plumbing fails, bio-hazard cleanup crews appear, and legal troubles mount. I hope it will take us away from being a hidden, dark, dirty secret, she said. Hopefully as the years go by, more people become aware and more interventions are done early on. Animals and kidsOften the first public agency to reach those troubled by hoarding, animal control officials have found homes loaded with sick cats or dogs, even birds and other creatures. But for others, their piles are made up of just about anything, and frequently everything: food, bills, electronics and magazines, to name a few. And of course, some hoarders are parents. Weve seen kids in there, children in there who go to school, said Lt. Brian Jones, division manager of Charlotte County Animal Control Services. And they smell because that smell just becomes a part of them. And thats sad. It can lead to bullying at school, social isolation, and low self-esteem later in life, experts say. Children tend to be treated like extensions of the hoard, said Boston area resident Barbara Allen, who wrote a book about growing up with a parent who hoarded, Nice Children Stolen from Car (2012). Now in her 50s, Mrs. Allen said her childhood is like a faded bad dream. Its a huge child welfare issue we just dont talk about, said Dr. Belinda Bruster, Ph.D., a licensed clinical social worker and assistant professor at Florida Gulf Coast University. We isolate the hoarder and forget about the child.Filling the voidWhatever the result, the underlying causes of a hoarding disorder are as varied as other major disorders such as drug and alcohol addiction. Mental health counselor Mr. Chidley found that hoarding can spring from trauma, and is also a degenerative illness, growing worse over time if left untreated. Ive never interviewed a hoarder who didnt have either a severe loss or a series of severe losses in their life, he said. That could be growing up as a child somewhere along the way but something happens thats traumatic in nature, scary, confusing. These folks, their mind doesnt digest it the way other peoples minds do. They dont have a normal grief response, a grief process. They tend to get stuck. Genetics may also play a role. If that comes together just right with a severe loss, hoarding can kind of be selected or occur even as a very young child as an answer to the pain inside, he said. The objects or the animals or whatever they pull around them becomes a swaddling or a buffer to all that pain. Not unlike addictive substances, theres a soothing quality for the hoarder thats surrounded by their things.Shocking sights and smellsSome hoarding cases are charmingly quirky, no matter how impractical. In one case, a person had tens of thousands of VHS tapes. Each was categorized by the year they were recorded, and the actors who starred in them. It was a very interesting collection and it was wonderfully done, and it was done with caring and neatness, said Ms. Preman of ACT Cleaning. If someone has 30,000 or 40,000 VCR tapes ... its difficult to dust and clean behind them. The person was also unable to use the homes kitchen. ACTs cleaning crew was ultimately able to save a smaller portion of the treasured recordings, a more managable collection. We were so pleased with that and the family members were pleased with that, Ms. Preman said. While some people who hoard may not be particularly distressed by their behavior, (it) can be distressing to other people, such as family members or landlords, the American Psychiatric Association says like a stern parent wagging his finger. But too often it turns tragic. People in Southwest Florida have been found living in squalor, a stench in their home so revolting that those unaccustomed to it put on haz-mat suits before entering. In at least one case, a person whose bathroom wasnt reachable used Tupperware containers instead, then hoarded those, also. Ive been with this department for 16 years. I never get used to it, said Lt. Jones of Charlotte Animal Control. There are certain smells and odors you just never get used to. In recent years, popular reality television shows have highlighted some of these sensational (though not rare) cases, bringing hoarders, usually intensely private people, into the public eye. By one estimate, only 5 percent of hoarding cases are reported. Twenty years ago, no one really knew what hoarding was, said Cory Chalmers, who has become a familiar figure on A&Es popular show, Hoarders. He and his crew are brought in to clean up the nastiest messes. A former fire department paramedic and captain, he runs a crime scene and trauma cleanup business in California. A&Es show offers therapy and cleanup services to people in exchange for sharing a deeply private condition with the rest of the United States. Its embarrassing for people that suffer from it because now theyre labeled, Mr. Chalmers said of the publicity both the shows and the DSM-5s new label have lent. But I think just the awareness is the biggest benefit to all this media exposure. Off the air, Mr. Chalmers works with hoarders in the Los Angeles area, including the rich and famous, along with the poor, he said. It effects millionaires just like it effects the homeless person whos filling up his cart. Thats also true here. Youd be surprised, its not just lowincome people, said Joe Lanktree, franchise owner of Junk Genius in Southwest Florida. Weve done half a million dollar homes. At one residence, his crew threw out more than 6,000 pounds of mail, he said, and there was still much work to be done. But on the second day of work the owner, in tears, paid them, gave them hugs, and asked them to leave. After working thousands of cases, Mr. Chalmers has found that a quick cleanup can backfire. If theyre not ready and you go in and clean them out, they will fill that home up faster than they ever did before, and more full, he said. Its no different than walking up to an alcoholic and taking his bottle away and saying, I cured you. Youre welcome.Lee Task Force forms In 2009, Lee Count Domestic Animal Services investigated a case in which the inside of a home had been turned, in effect, into an industrial garbage bin. There were a few cats living there as well. As they walked through the home on top of the junk, their heads were near the ceiling, said Ria Brown of Lee DAS. As it turned out the woman living there wanted help, but the cleanup and therapy needed for recovery were beyond what code enforcement officials could provide. We found out there really wasnt anybody to provide that kind of help, said Ms. Brown. She doesnt live in that house anymore, but shes OK. She stays in therapy so she can try to stay on track. In the meantime, Lee County DAS, along with the Department of Human Services, started the Task Force on Hoarding, dedicated to education and awareness in the community. The United Way of Lee, Glades, and Hendry Countys 211 call-in hotline and social service referral service helps funnel hoarding cases to the proper resources. Every hoarding situation is unique and different, said 211 director Linda Hafner. We work to bring the members (of the task force) together to problem solve and try to get the appropriate resources to assist. Julie Boudreaux, program manager for Lee County Human Services, is the Task Forces coordinator. The group holds seminars, quarterly meetings and is overseen by a steering committee. At one presentation Ms. Boudreaux gave for employees in the human services department, people came up to her afterwards to tell her about an old neighbor, or an aunt; that someone they knew sometime who had a really really messy house, she said. They see it on TV but they just dont think it happens here, she said. Evolving attitudesAs awareness of hoarding as a psychological condition grows, attitudes about it are shifting. I remember we criminally charged the first couple of (animal hoarding) cases we processed, said Lt. Jones of Charlotte County Animal Control. Was that the right decision? I dont know Theyre still hoarders. The key is to get them help so they dont do it again, and get the animals out of there. Im glad we took that shift though. It didnt feel right to arrest them for something they probably didnt have a lot of control over. So were evolving, too. Were still learning. Thats the way I look at it. In one house he visited over a Christmas holiday, in the midst of the mess, there was a tin of cookies on the table and a few were missing as if a kid had swiped them, Lt. Jones recalls: That little snippet of normalcy and everything around it is chaos. The thing that amazed him the most was that someone lived there.

The environmental science major at University of MichiganDearborn breeds species ranging from the familiar household pests, which he sells on the cheap as food for other peoples pets, to the more interesting, exotic Madagascar hissing roaches and rhino roaches, which can live for 10 to 15 years. (Mr. Kandilian told the Detroit Free Press in July that of the 4,000 cockroach species, only about a dozen are pests.) Why not choose a more conventional pet? Because (m)ammals smell, he said. (Missing from the Free Pressstory: details on the likely interesting initial conversation between Kyle and his mother when he asked if he could have 200,000 cockroaches in the house.) Cant possibly be true A 55-year-old woman in the Netherlands seemed to be experiencing orgasms emanating from her foot, she said, and Dr. Marcel Waldinger of Utrecht University (writing in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, online in June) produced a possible explanation. The applicable left foot nerve enters the spinal cord at about the same level as the vaginal nerve, Mr. Waldinger wrote, and the womans recent foot injury might have caused the nerves to cross. The woman reported five or six orgasms per day that felt exactly like regular orgasms and, she said, were making her feel terribly guilty and embarrassed. After treatment with a nerve anesthetic, she reported being orgasm-free (in the foot, at least) for eight months. The intersection of West Gateway Boulevard and North Congress Avenue in Boynton Beach, Fla. (pop. 60,000), is nine lanes wide, busy even at 11 p.m. on Sunday night, as it was at that time in July when a 2-year-old girl darted across, a combination of good fortune and sometimes-rare Florida driver alertness allowing her safe arrival on the other side without a scratch. Its a miracle, said Harry Scott, who witnessed it. Im telling you the truth. Mom Kayla Campbell, 26, was charged with felony neglect, as she appeared oblivious, said police, to the childs absence from home. An unnamed restaurateur from Nagoya, Japan, has filed a lawsuit against an affiliate of the countrys largest organized crime syndicate, Yamaguchi-gumi, demanding a refund of protection money she had been paying for more than 12 years (in total, the equivalent of about $170,000). The affiliate, Kodo-kai, burned down a bar in 2010, killing people, in a similar protection arrangement that went bad, and the plaintiff said she, too, was threatened with arson when she decided to stop paying. According to an expert on Japanese yakuza, a relative of one of the victims of the 2010 fire may also sue Kodo-kai. Unclear on the concept In June, following his guilty plea in Corpus Christi, Texas, to possession of child pornography, Jose Salazar, 70, offered to perform public service to reduce the 12-year sentence a federal judge had handed him. Salazar said he had a lot to offer society, according to an Associated Press story, and could be useful in mentoring children. At Atherstone, Englands, Twycross Zoo, a program is under way to try to teach quarter-ton giant tortoises to speed up. An extended outdoor pen had been built for Speedy (age 70), Tim, 40, and Shelly, 30, but that meant it took a longer time to round them up for bed at the end of the day. The Leicester Mercury reported in June that zoo officials were trying to use the lure of food to get the tortoises to significantly improve their way-under-1-mile-per-hour gait. The British sex toy manufacturer Ann Summers issued a recall in June of a certain model of its popular Ultimate O Vibrator because of a problem with the electrical charger. The company said it was being cautious but that the risk of danger is low. Inexplicable Tina Marie Garrison, 37, and her son Junior Lee Dillon, 18, of Preston, Minn., were charged in June with stealing almost $5,000 worth of gopher feet from the freezer of a gopher trapper in Granger, Minn., and selling them for the local offered bounty of $3 per pair. Ms. Garrison, Dillon, and the victimized trapper were friends, and it was not clear why the thinly populated gopher-foot market would not have deterred them. Louann Giambattista, 55, a 33-yearveteran American Airlines flight attendant, filed a lawsuit against the company in July alleging that it had subjected her to baseless hassles because of co-workers accusations that, argued her attorney, were wrongly making her out to be a nut. One of the accusations was that she was hiding rats in her underwear. Strange Old World The Best of the International Press: (1) In July, the governor of Gorontalo province in Indonesia decreed that female secretaries should be replaced immediately with males. He was responding to a recent excessive spate of extramarital affairs by male bureaucrats with their female secr etaries. ((O)ld women who are no longer attractive could also be hired, he said.) Japanese media were abuzz in June describing the social trend of teenagers who lick each others eyeballs as a sign of dating commitment (roughly equivalent, said the website Japan Crush, to getting to second base). Health authorities said it is also an excellent way to spread eye chlamydia and conjunctivitis. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Gordon Vanscoy, president of GreenCare and a member of the board of directors for KCB, welcomed attendees and explained that the goal is to certify at least 400 homes, five schools and six businesses as well as places of worship and other locations such as parks, hospitals and common areas within the community as Community Wildlife Habitats. Mr. Vanscoy and his GreenCare partner, Paul Long, sponsored the seminar in hopes of educating local residents about the importance of creating outdoor habitats that are healthy for native wildlife. Luwana Milner, a KCB volunteer and board member, explained that only four elements water, food, shelter and a place to raise young are needed to create a wildlife habitat in a backyard, condo green space or commercial/business courtyard. She stressed that the size of the space is not important. When we think of wildlife, we dont want people to attract bears, panthers and other animals that belong in a larger natural habitat such as the Everglades, Ms. Milner said. The species we want to help thrive in our communities in certified wildlife habitats are birds, butterflies and small animals such as rabbits and turtles. Registering your backyard or place of business as a wildlife habitat is fairly simple. KCB volunteers are available to walk interested parties through the registration process. To date, through the National Certified Wildlife Habitat program, more than 146,000 sites including yards, schools, businesses, community gardens and parks, and places of worship have been certified. Keep Collier Beautiful is working to become part of this distinguished group.

Fort Myers: Cape Coral: Naples: flowered collar on her wedding day. Their ceremony was rather traditional, We are gathered together The story was picked up by nearly 30 different media outlets across the country and appeared on the newsfeed of more than 30,000 Facebook and Twitter subscribers. We wanted to show the services we provide to real brides and grooms through the marriage of Hoss and Honey Bear, Patricia George, public relations manager, says of the extravaganza. Settling into married life, Hoss and Honey Bear work a full 40-hour work week at the Hyatt. They walk along the boardwalk, ride the trolley and join vacationing children for story time. When people come here, we want them to feel relaxed and comfortable, Ms. George says. Hoss and Honey Bear really help set the tone: Youre here on vacation, so relax and enjoy. Three-year-old Hoss has a mini Mohawk much like Mad magazine cover boy Alfred E. Neuman. But theres nothing mischievous about Hoss, hes shy and loyal. Before moving to Florida, Hoss worked at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort in Austin, Texas. When Forbes magazine came to cover the resort the general manager sent the photographer up in a helicopter to see the expansive golf course and lavish swimming pools. When the article ran, there was only one picture: Hoss in a kayak. Honey Bear has a halo of golden hairs around her brown face. But dont let that fool you. Shes a pistol. Shes the yearold puppy who scatters dog toys around the house, pulling every pillow off the couch and every pillow off the bed to look up at her owners when they come home like, Arent you proud of me? I got every pillow. Recently, a family with three small children drove down from Atlanta. When they arrived, they were cranky. But when the little ones saw Hoss and Honey Bear it was like they saw a unicorn or the dog-like luck-dragon from The Neverending Story. The children were instantly happy. Their mood changed before their parents had even finished checking into their room. I wish other Hyatts would start this program, says Paula Greenfield, Hyatt dog concierge, owner and handler of Hoss and Honey Bear. The secret to the dog program is that you have to have something different and usual People are attracted to different and unusual. One little boy mistook Hoss blackand-white fur for a panda. All little ones are surprised to hear the 140-pound dogs are just puppies. And some youngsters are eager to become pen pals with Hoss and Honey Bear. Their second week on the job Hoss and Honey Bear received a package, special-delivery: homemade peanut-butter dog cookies. The note attached read: We hope you remember us, Hoss and Honey Bear. We love you! Ms. Greenfield will always remember what the woman working the front desk said. Her words put the pooch patrol in full effect: I cant even get a comment card and the dogs are getting specialdelivery boxes.

With local students heading back to the classroom next week, I thought it apropos to turn back the hands of time and write about Collier County schools in the good old days of Everglades City, where teachers have been educating youngsters since 1893. The earliest classes consisting of a half-dozen students under the instruction of Tennessean J.W. Todd were held in a room in home of George Storter (now known as the landmark Everglades City Rod & Gun Club). The towns first school building was constructed in 1895 and was washed away in a cyclone, according to local school records. It was rebuilt on the same site; however, it was last seen floating upriver following the 1910 hurricane. (Rob Storters primitive sketch of the floating schoolhouse is on page 71 of his book, Crackers in the Glade: Life and Times in the Old Everglades.) By the fall of 1923, a new school was in place, with two rooms and two teachers for 45 pupils. One resident described physical education classes as mostly swimming lessons, saying two older boys would watch out for alligators while the others dove into the river. The school was expanded in 1926 and, until 1948, accommodated the entire student population of Everglades City, all the way through high school. The current school was built in 1961 and remodeled in 1995. Everglades City School has the rare distinction of being one of just two K-12 schools in the state of Florida (the other being in Cedar Key, 50 miles southwest of Gainesville). In addition to those who live within Everglades City proper, students come from nearby Ochopee, Jerome, Lee-Cypress, Copeland, Plantation and Chokoloskee. Graduates per year typically number in the single digits.One of the more colorful teachers in Everglades City, and certainly the one with the longest tenure, was the late Ruth Neal. As a college graduate from Indiana, Miss Neal arrived in the summer of 1926 to visit her father, Otto Neal, who was in charge of construction of the Tamiami Trail construction. She stayed in town to teach science and mathematics and was on staff when the first students graduated in 1928. She also coached girls sports. Miss Neal retired in 1973, never missing a day in her 45-year career.Chokoloskee was isolated from the rest of the world until the causeway opened in 1956. Over the years, the little community had neither schools nor churches in continuous operation. The first records of a school on the island indicate classes taking place in a Catholic mission that was established to serve the children of the farmers and fishermen who traded by sailing vessels between Fort Myers and Key West.The first actual school on Chokoloskee was built in 1918. Teachers were erratic with their own attendance, with many simply opting not to adapt to the outback conditions. According to a column written by C.G. McKinney, the sage of Chokoloskee, and posted in the weekly American Eagle newspaper in November 1924: We have no school. We heard of a he-teacher who started down here and got as far as Marco and found out he did not have his fighting spirit along; so he went back up the coast.

A.C. Hancock built the boat. His son, Chris Hancock, provided this photo.Chokoloskee children only received an eighth-grade education until the late 1930s, when some of them began attending high school in Everglades City and Naples. The islands second school was built in 1957. An old-timer once told me the classroom was designed with a row to represent every grade. Teachers lived on the premises.The schools on Chokoloskee and in Everglades City were combined in 1953 to form one school, in Everglades City. Students from Chokoloskee had to travel by boat to get to class until the causeway opened three years later. Local black students started their education in a one-room church in Port DuPont near the Barron River Bridge in 1924. Four years later, classes moved into a boarding house that had been used by crews working on the Tamiami Trail. The DuPont School for elementary grades was built in 1957; older students were bused to Bethune High School in nearby Immokalee. Integration began in 1966 and was completed within two years. Maureen Sullivan-Hartung arrived in Naples in 1981. Following a years stint as a reporter for the former weekly Everglades Echo newspaper, she began freelancing.

Gulfshore Blvd. N.Goodlette-Frank Rd. 261 9th Street South, Naples www.riverchasedermatology.com Pediatric and Adult Dermatology Dermatologic Surgery Cosmetic Rejuvenation Ultrasound patch heals wounds in human trialIn a small clinical study, researchers administered a new method for treating chronic wounds using a novel ultrasound applicator that can be worn like an adhesive bandage. The applicator delivers low-frequency, low-intensity ultrasound directly to wounds, and was found to significantly accelerate healing in five patients with venous ulcers. Venous ulcers are caused when valves in the veins malfunction, causing blood to pool in the leg instead of returning to the heart. This pooling, called venous stasis, can cause proteins and cells in the vein to leak into the surrounding tissue leading to inflammation and formation of an ulcer. The technology was developed by researchers at Drexel University, Philadelphia, with funding from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, part of the National Institutes of Health. Venous ulcers account for 80 percent of all chronic wounds found on lower extremities and affect approximately 500,000 U.S. patients annually, a number thats expected to increase as obesity rates climb. Its estimated that treatment for venous ulcers costs the U.S. healthcare system over $1 billion dollars per year. Standard treatment for venous ulcers involves controlling swelling, taking care of the wound by keeping it moist, preventing infection, and compression therapy a technique in which patients wear elastic socks that squeeze the leg to prevent blood from flowing backwards. Despite these measures, wounds often take months and occasionally years to heal. Right now, we rely mostly on passive treatments, said Michael Weingarten, M.D., chief of vascular surgery at Drexel Medicine and a researcher in the study. With the exception of expensive skin grafting surgeries, there are very few technologies that actively stimulate healing of these ulcers. In an article to be published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, the Drexel researchers report that patients who received low-frequency, low-intensity ultrasound treatment during their weekly check-up (in addition to standard compression therapy), showed a net reduction in wound size after just four weeks. In contrast, patients who didnt receive ultrasound treatment had an average increase in wound size during the same time period. One of the greatest challenges of the study was designing and creating their battery-powered ultrasound patch said Peter A. Lewin, Ph.D., at Drexel Most ultrasound transducers require a large apparatus and need to be plugged into the wall. We wanted this to be fully wearable as well as portable, so we needed to make it battery-powered. To achieve that, we had had to design a transducer that could produce medically relevant energy levels using minimum voltage, said Dr. Lewin.Their resulting ultrasound patch weighs just 100 grams the equivalent of a king sized candy bar and is connected to two lithium ion batteries that are fully rechargeable. Dr. Lewin says the design gives patients the option of using the transducer in a home environment, while still wearing their compression socks. It also prevents the need for a doctors visit, which can be a difficult task for patients with chronic wounds.In the future, the researchers anticipate that patients with other types of chronic wounds, such as diabetic or pressure ulcers, may also benefit from therapeutic ultrasound. Because the ideal treatment frequency, duration and intensity may be unique for each type of wound, Dr. Lewin and his colleagues have developed and are currently testing a diagnostic monitoring component of their ultrasound patch, which would help physicians optimize treatment for each patient.

Throbbing pain isnt a matter of the heart THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAThrobbing pain might pound like a heartbeat, but University of Florida scientists have discovered the sensation is all in your head or more precisely, in your brain waves. The finding could drastically change how researchers look for therapies that can ease pain, said Dr. Andrew Ahn, a neurologist at the UF College of Medicine. He and his colleagues reported their findings in the July issue of the journal Pain. Aristotle linked throbbing pain to heart rhythm 2,300 years ago, Dr. Ahn said. It took two millennia to discover that his presumption was wrong. People who experience a toothache or a migraine or even just hit their shin on the coffee table can note a throbbing quality to the pain that physicians have long associated with arterial pulsations at the location of the injury. Some medicines even constricted blood vessel walls in hopes of lessening the effect. Current therapies for pain do not adequately relieve pain and have serious negative side effects, so we thought that by examining this experience more closely we could find clues that would lead us to improved therapies to help people who suffer from pain, Dr. Ahn said. It turns out that we have been looking in the wrong place all along. Along with researchers Jue Mo and Mingzou Ding from the UF College of Engineering and Morris Maizels of the Blue Ridge Headache Center in Asheville, N.C., Dr. Ahn examined a patient who had a throbbing sensation that remained even after her chronic migraine headaches had resolved. They simultaneously recorded the patients sensation of the throbbing pain and her arterial pulse and found that they differed from one another, indicating that the pulsing of blood from the heartbeat was unrelated to the throbbing quality of pain. Through the use of an electroencephalogram, they found that the throbbing quality was correlated with a type of brain activity called alpha waves. We understand very little about alpha waves, but they appear to have an important role in attention and how we experience the world, Dr. Ahn said. In addition, by analogy to how a radio works, alpha waves may also act as a carrier signal that allows different parts of the brain to communicate with itself. What scientists dont know yet is exactly how alpha waves cause throbbing pain. But the current findings indicate that the experience of pain is linked more to how the brain works and not to the pulsations of blood at the location of the pain. Understanding this will allow researchers to design new studies to discover better treatments for pain. This work was supported by the Facial Pain Research Foundation and in part by grants from the National Institutes of Health.

AUGUST 31, 2013 COCONUT POINT LOCATION CHAMBER MATTERSStreamlining regulatory processes could spur growth BY MICHAEL WYNNSpecial to Florida WeeklyIn our last Chamber Matters, we reviewed local history and how it has influenced our current business climate, as well as recent progress we have made. This month we ask some important questions that highlight steps we can take to streamline the regulatory process as well as some unique opportunities for economic growth here in Collier County. Streamlining the regulatory process is essential in improving our business climate. As more plans and permits are maintained electronically, we should see inspectors visiting job sites in the future with tablets or Internet-enabled devices. Failing a site inspection due to plan/permit paperwork not being in the permit box should soon be a thing of the past. Everything could be reviewed and approved in real time, reducing costs to both builder and buyer, and shortening the window to getting those buildings occupied. Or, consider these ideas: What if inspections of certain equipment could be handled by e-mailing photos to the county instead of requiring a physical inspection? What if the fire districts could come to a common understanding and interpretation of the current standards? What if we could create a certification process whereby builders, HVAC companies and tradespeople could earn the right to receive only random inspections? A company would have to go through a certification process and meet a specific quality standard on jobs for a set period of time to qualify. Those caught cheating the process would suffer large fines and be required to go back to mandatory inspections for every job. If the above scenarios were to take place, would the quality of work increase? How much money would be saved and reinvested in new jobs or growth as a result? Collier County is also uniquely positioned to consider several ideas for economic growth. Consider the fact that we have an existing and robust agricultural industry in eastern Collier County. Why not focus on having a world-class agricultural research and development facility there? Why not find a way to grow this industry in eastern Collier County when we already have so many of the necessary ingredients? Imagine our local growers in cooperation with leading research firms designing the highest quality and safest foods that can be tested, grown and distributed from here. What if Collier County could become designated as a blue zone, a geographic area where people live measurably longer lives? Communities throughout the world have received this designation. Their citizens tend to have lower incidents of disease and enjoy a greater number of healthier years of life. Statistics show that Collier County already has a number of traits shared by many of these blue zones. We have the longest life expectancy in the United States for women (85.8 years) and the secondlongest life expectancy for men at (80.7 years). Our cardiac mortality is rated among the lowest in the nation. Given that 80 percent of a persons life expectancy is influenced by lifestyle habits (versus 20 percent genetic), we certainly have a lot to gain by studying how we can adopt more of the characteristics of a blue zone. Should our community ever be designated with this distinction, it would be a powerful marketing tool to drive sustainable growth. Fortunately, Collier County is enjoying an economic rebound. However, the strength of our future economy will depend on the degree to which we as a community are willing to invest in ideas similar to the ones listed above.

MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickThere are few things that make a veterinarian happier than walking into an exam room to see a pet whos squeaky clean and perfectly groomed. Thats because its a sign of a pet owner whos paying attention to all aspects of preventive pet care and overall comfort. How important is grooming to your pets comfort? Consider a simple mat, so easy to overlook. Have you ever had your hair in a ponytail that was just a little too tight? A mat can feel the same way to your dog a constant pull on the skin. Try to imagine those all over your body, and you have a good idea how uncomfortable an ungroomed coat can be. Your dog need never know what a mat feels like if you keep him brushed and combed but thats just the start of the health benefits. Regular grooming allows you to look for lumps, bumps and injuries, while clearing such things as tangles and ticks from his coat. Follow up with your veterinarian on any questionable masses you find, and you may detect cancer early enough to save your pets life. For shorthaired breeds, keeping skin and coat in good shape is easy. Run your hands over him daily, a brush over him weekly and thats it. For other breeds, grooming is a little more involved. Breeds such as collies, chows, keeshonden and Alaskan malamutes are double-coated, which means they have a downy undercoat underneath harsher long hair. The down can mat like a layer of felt against the skin if left untended. To prevent this, divide the coat into small sections and brush against the grain from the skin outward, working from head to tail, section by section. A tip: Yes, you can keep these long-haired dogs clipped short to keep grooming easier and youll be rewarded with a dog who sheds the least of all, owing to the longer grow-andshed cycle of long hair. Silky-coated dogs such as Afghan hounds, cockers and Maltese also need constant brushing to keep tangles from forming. As with the double-coated dogs, work with small sections at a time, brushing from the skin outward, and then comb back into place with the grain for a glossy, finished look. Coats of this type require so much attention that having a groomer keep the dogs trimmed to a medium length is often more practical. Curly and wiry coats, such as those on poodles and terriers, need to be brushed weekly, working against the grain and then with it. Curly coats need to be clipped every six weeks; wiry ones, two or three times a year. (But clipping every six weeks will keep your terrier looking sharper.) A good professional groomer, along with your veterinarian, can be a dogs best friend. Good grooming is about more than keeping your pet looking beautiful and clean-smelling, although those are certainly pleasant payoffs. Regular grooming relaxes the dog whos used to it, and it becomes a special time shared between you both. A coat free of mats, burrs and tangles, and skin free of fleas and ticks, are as comfortable to your dog as clean clothes fresh from the wash are to you. It just makes you feel good, and the effect is the same for your pet. Some added benefit for you: Giving your dog a tummy rub after every session is sure to relax you (and your dog, of course) and ease the stress of your day. Comb-out or belly rub? If you approach grooming with a positive attitude and are patient, your pet will enjoy the task as bonding time.

I only do that for a few hours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Sometimes, I actually do ride my bike, attempt yoga, or wog (its a jog/walk combo thing where you try to run, but its hard so you jog, but thats hard, too so you walk). However, its eleventy-bazillion degrees outside these days, and Ill admit to enjoying the air-conditioned comforts of home far more often than sweating up a storm and gasping for air in this insufferable humidity. So, naturally, during a time when I would best describe my physical activity level as semi-sedentary, my husband, on the other hand, is training for the annual Captiva Triathlon next month like he has an imaginary Jillian Michaels on his shoulder screaming, Unless you puke, faint, or die keep going! (This is a direct quote from Jillians book, Making The Cut, by the way. Charming, no?) Not only is my dear Todd biking, running and swimming at least six days a week, hes doing all this at 5:30 in the godforsaken morning. I generally dont rise before 10 unless I have to catch a flight or theres a royal wedding to watch on TV, so you can imagine my guilt while I turn over and pull the blanket over my head as Todd does 50 push-ups on the bedroom floor each morning. The worst part is that the efforts of his training are beginning to show; therefore, Im having to restrain myself from the bon-bons and the adult beverages and force myself to exercise (which is not my forte, especially in August). There was a time, in my 20s, when if I needed to fit into a small-ish dress hanging in the back of my closet, I would simply drink nothing but Slim Fast and water for 24 hours, do 100 crunches, jog in place for a few minutes and, like magic, shed five pounds. Somewhere along the line, however, my metabolism went south and took my ability to eat a cracker and not gain weight along with it. These days I have no doubt that if I drank a can of SlimFast Id gain 10 pounds. As Todd sits on the couch each night, eating fish and broccoli while updating his Jillian Michaels iPhone app/calorie counter and happily reporting how many miles he pedaled that day, I should be praising him for his efforts, I know. Yet all I can think is that I absolutely cannot have a husband who is thinner than me. So Ive downloaded Jillian, I have a new bike, and the YMCA is calling my name. I might be entering any triathlons anytime soon, but Im bound and determined that if somebody in this house has to go shopping for clothes in smaller sizes, its going to me first. Bring it on, Jillian.Now were cookingWhen were on the quest to stay in shape, sometimes its easier to eat extra healthy than it is to break a sweat (especially this time of year). Whole Foods has cooked up a chance for some local media-type celebs to be the main ingredients in showing off their culinary chops when it comes to preparing simple summer dinners that are good and good for you. Starting at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 15 and the following two Thursday evenings, its the Whole Foods 0 Minutes $20 Fill the Grill Challenge, giving amateur chefs 20 minutes and $20 to shop for ingredients and another 20 minutes to prepare their recipes using the markets demonstration kitchen Weber electric grills. The first round of competition pits Sara Belsole of FOX-4 against Jay Schlichter of the Naples Daily News. On Aug. 22, Krista Fogelsong of NBC-2 and Florida Weeklys own Cindy Pierce will be in the hot seats. A panel of judges will taste the results and choose one winner each night. The two finalists will go head-to-head (tongs-to-tongs, perhaps?) on Aug. 29. Talk about a pressure cooker! I can just imagine the calories the contestants will burn in their 20-minute shopping frenzy, not to mention the sweat of having to prepare a meal worthy of the judges taste buds in 20 minutes. As much as I love fun and games and as much as Im committed to ramping up my exercise regime Im sure glad Im not in on this particular challenge. My chefs hat is off to my media friends who are stepping up to the grill. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Born in Bavaria, Germany, Annette Trossbach of North Fort Myers says that when she was growing up abroad, there was a butcher shop in every village. People would raise a cow or a pig, feed it well, and when it was time, theyd take it to their local butcher and tell them how theyd like their meat cut. While the ancient practice still holds true in some places, you wont see much of that in Southwest Florida. Ms Trossbach, a local theater director and mother of two young boys, gets nostalgic when she remembers living in the northeastern United States before moving to Lee County 10 years ago. In big cities, theres a butcher shop on every corner, she says. Thats something I miss.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 BUSINESS B2 Detroit offers lessons about the complexity of municipal bankruptcy In the wake of depressions and recessions, personal and corporate bankruptcies become all too common. Most recently, several municipal bankruptcies have been declared, most notably Detroits bankruptcy. Understanding what is happening in Detroits legal proceedings requires a general knowledge of bankruptcies. A bankruptcy is a legal status to describe a persons (or an entitys) inability to repay its debts to its creditors, which include lenders, trade merchants still owed payment, employees owed pension and other benefits, etc. The matter is settled in court before a judge who specializes in bankruptcies and according to the federal laws governing bankruptcies (as state law, both state statute and state case law, does not apply). There is not a jury trial. The judge listens to all parties and makes the final decision. There are different types of bankruptcies: personal, corporate and municipal; in that sequence, they progress in legal complexity. Personal bankruptcy became quite prevalent in the most recent great recession. Typically, the borrower filed for bankruptcy and went before the court seeking elimination or reduction in the debts owed. Other than debts owed to the U.S. government, which are extremely difficult to get erased or forgiven. (e.g., student loans or tax liens), the judge can extinguish debts and let the creditor start anew without any debts, or the judge can fashion a plan of partial or extended repayments on debts. A core concept in any bankruptcy proceeding is that secured creditors are entitled to take their security/asset backing their loan e.g., a bank taking the home that was mortgaged. Next in complexity are corporate bankruptcies. The larger the size and the greater the reach of international operations (i.e., a labyrinth of assets that are all over the world), the more difficult the maze. There also can be a long list of indebtedness with varying degrees of seniority and security, meaning it takes effort to determine: if a secured claim is a valid claim; what the security is worth; and the seniority/or pecking order of creditor payoff if there is no security backing the debt. In general terms, just as in personal bankruptcies, a secured creditor in a corporate proceeding will most likely get payment in full if the debt is secured by a very high quality asset with value equal or greater than the associated debt. For instance, corporate debt of $1 billion that is secured by a $2 billion asset is in good position to get paid in full or, in lieu of payment, to get the asset in satisfaction of the debt. In comparison to corporate bankruptcies, the municipal bankruptcy process is less clean (as municipal bankruptcies are often clouded by politics) and less clear (as there are types of debt unique to municipalities, like revenue bonds). Look to a specific revenue stream for repayment and general obligation bonds look to the municipalitys tax receipts for repayment. Also, unlike most corporations, municipalities are obligated to respond to a wide array of pension obligations for its municipal employees. In a municipal bankruptcy, the judge must continue to pay a large portion of the police, fire, schools, emergency, etc., as these employees are needed to continue working. In a municipal bankruptcy, time is of the essence. The judge looks to expedite the process. The judge needs to be ever so sure that the restructuring plan for the municipality will let it build a future and not be hamstrung by past debts. With that as background, here is the skinny on Detroit: Prior to its bankruptcy filing on July 18, 2013, the citys mayor had been replaced by an emergency manger as of March 2013. After attempts by the manager to cut operating losses and reduce liabilities, he went to bankruptcy court in order to force a reduction of its $20 billion liabilities upon its many different creditors. Some of the creditors dont want a judge to decide their payoff and they want a jury to decide their fate. Normally objections to proceeding with a bankruptcy are rejected but there might be a valid claim that the emergency manager failed to negotiate in good faith with the creditors and summarily proceeded into bankruptcy court. But if the proceedings continue in bankruptcy court, then a judge will be deciding the fate of the various creditors. The emergency manager proposes the new financial plan. If this restructuring plan does not violate any federal bankruptcy rules, then the judge can accept it. Creditors participate in the restoring plans but ultimately their objections can be disregarded and the new plan crammed down upon them as ultimately the judge decides a plans fairness. The greatest challenge is how the pension obligations will be decided. There are many municipalities saddled with pension and health-care obligations that must be reduced in order for them to survive. The emergency manager wants a restructuring plan to emerge in 2014. The judge seems to be on board with that aggressive timetable, however the judge cannot control the appeal process of creditors, which can slow down any emergence from bankruptcy. Appeal after appeal by various creditors could add to the untimely, painful fate of Detroit. The travesty is that Detroit was once a shining light to the world. It is now a financial disaster and, physically, many parts are an eyesore. Approximately 36 percent of Detroits residents live below the U.S. poverty level. How did such a great city go so wrong? Clearly, it lived beyond its means and did not introduce a sufficient level of new business investment or new entities into its economic mix. It would seem that municipalities with marginal credit will find it harder to finance themselves and investors will look at private sector/corporate bonds with greater interest.

Some say its a dying art, while others are determined to keep up with big box stores and large grocery chains by providing clientele with more than just a choice cut of meat. Florida Weekly spoke with owners and employees at five butcher shops from Charlotte to Collier counties and whether they were German, Italian or country, they all share the same trade whether it be through ambition, talent or heritage. Michael Pica, Marios Meat Market & Deli in Fort Myers: Nobody knows our sausage recipe except three people me, my cousin, and my dad, says Mr. Pica about the famous sausage at Marios, the market and deli that he and his family opened in Fort Myers in 1990. Of the dozen employees at the popular butcher, deli and take-out grocery, about half are family members. Were first-generation Italians, says Mr. Pica proudly. When my father and mother came over here from Italy in 1954, my dad learned the butchering trade and opened his first store in Brooklyn in 1967. Mr. Picas parents retired here in the late s and the rest of the family soon followed. Marios started out as a small butcher shop in the Sams Plaza; business was so good that the shop moved to a larger space between Crystal Drive and College Parkway on U.S. 41. Recently, the Picas added even more space with a major renovation. Nicknamed The Sausage King by loyal customers, Marios hasnt suffered when it comes to competing with the chains. Its all about quality, says Mr. Pica. The meat, the homemade mozzarella, the specialty dishes everything is fresh. Its our heritage and we live it every single day. Philip and Karen Christie, Smoke Signals Meats, Lehigh Acres: While some butchers and meat markets carry generations of knowledge behind the trade, others are just beginning in the business. Such is the case with Philip and Karen Christie. Their Smoke Signals Meats business travels from area farmers markets all along the Southwest Florida coast, plus they own and operate Maverick Meat Processing, a USDA certified plant in Lehigh Acres and they just started less than a year ago. Mr. Christie was semi-retired from the telecommunications business when he says, Karen basically kicked me off the porch. I was between jobs and needed to do something. The couple enjoyed going to farmers markets and recognized a booming industry. We thought about making soaps or candles, but there was already plenty of that at the markets, says Karen Christie. But not as many vendors were selling meat. When a local distributing plant, Maverick Meats, became available for purchase, the Christies went for it. Maverick Meats is certified by the USDA, which means the plant is inspected daily. The couple, along with a staff of seven, supplies popular restaurants like The Bubble Room (Captiva) and University Grill (Fort Myers), along with the health-care giant Lee Sar. Miss Christie, who was a pre-school teacher before Smoke Signals and Maverick Meats, puts it like this: People want to buy local and support small businesses and thats what were counting on. Patty Lonsky, Kallis German Butcher Shop in Port Charlotte: Manager of the busy Port Charlotte Butcher Shop for the past 17 years, Ms. Lonsky is from New Jersey; her boss, owner and master butcher, Manfred Kallnischkies, hails from Hamburg, Germany. Kallis is small (less than 10 employees), but boasts staying power. Mr. Kallnischkies opened the place 28 years ago, and while Ms. Lonsky says things slow down a little in the summer, the clientele is loyal. People want quality. We dont use fillers or preservatives everything is fresh. Our customers want meat thats healthy for them. Like all of the butchers we spoke to, Kallis gets cases of meat mostly from the Midwest, then Mr. Kallnischkies cuts it to order. Were full service. Our biggest sellers are beef and pork, plus we make sausages, lunch meats and we sell German cooking products, says Ms. Lonsky. But were pretty simple here. You come in, you get it, you take it out. She acknowledges that Kallis is unique around these parts, In places like New Jersey, butchers are everywhere but down here, not so much. People keep coming to us because we provide something different its like a dying art. Larry Lawhon, Lawhons Grocery & Meat, North Fort Myers: With a light southern drawl, Mr. Lawhon stresses that his business, which has been around since 1976 and employs 29 people, is just a tiny retail place. Located right off I-75, Lawhons is also a gas station and deli that serves biscuits and gravy and steak and eggs. On Tuesdays and Fridays, Lawhons features a cheeseburger special that brings in around 200 truckers a day. Mr. Lawhons father-in-law started the business and plenty of family members work there; his niece runs the website and Facebook page. Were out in the boonies, says Mr. Lawhon. We get a lot of country families, a good bit of truckers, and we can cut a choice piece of meat, but we have to bring more to the table than that to stay in business. Recently, Mr. Lawhon attended a meat convention in Tallahassee where one of the speakers said that in the last five years, 52 independent butcher stores in the state of Florida closed because of the big box stores. It makes sense, folks go there for everything else. Theyre tired and ready for dinner, so they toss a couple of prepackaged steaks in the cart instead of going to the butcher; we understand that. Still, Lawhons stays busy all year round. Mr. Lawhon says he wont hire a butcher who has less than seven years of experience (there is no official butcher certification; apprentices learn from masters) and most of his butchers started out as bag boys (with very few exceptions, we found that butchering is largely a male dominated trade). The Walmarts and the Costcos are what keep smaller shops like ours in business, says Mr. Lawhon. But, we know that butchering wont be around much longer and there arent many of us left. Matt Deason, Jimmy Ps Butcher Shop & Deli, Naples: I was about to go back to college when my bosses offered to teach me the trade, says Mr. Deason, a grinder at Jimmy P.s who started out working in the deli when he was 20. Now at 25, hes working towards a career in the business under the tutelage of owner, Jim Pepper whos been a butcher for close to 50 years. Jims my mentor, says Mr. Deason. When I started, I didnt know anything about meat other than I liked to eat it. Five years later, Mr. Deason can explain that grinding is an art and that its all about math. You have to learn the art of the fat to lean ratio, he says. Like when it comes to ground chuck, its 80 percent lean and 20 percent fat. Theres a proper ratio to grinding different kinds of meat you have to be taught by someone who knows. Its not something you can learn in school you need to find somebody whos willing to teach you and thats like a gift.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 BUSINESS B6 I trace my roots all the way back to 1870 and the making of Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky, Americas first bottled bourbon. I innovated by selling it in sealed glass bottles instead of barrels. Today Im a major alcoholic beverage maker, with more than 25 brands of wines and spirits and more than 4,000 employees. My brands include Jack Daniels, Gentleman Jack, Southern Comfort, Finlandia, el Jimador, Herradura, Pepe Lopez, Woodford Reserve, Canadian Mist, Chambord, Collingwood, Early Times, Korbel, Little Black Dress, Maximus, Old Forester, Sonoma-Cutrer and Tuaca. My sales top $3 billion annually. Who am I?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Risk ReductionIts true that the stock markets performance is far from guaranteed. Still, over the long run, its one of the most effective ways to build wealth. Better still, many of its risks can be reduced. For example, you can: (1) Be a long-term investor, not a shortterm speculator. Holding a stock for only a few weeks, days or hours is not investing its gambling. Think of yourself as a committed owner of businesses, and plan to hang on as long as the companies are healthy and growing. The longer your investing horizon, the more likely the stock market is to rise. In the short term, anything can happen including crashes. One or all of your holdings could fall by 20 percent tomorrow. Long-term investors can ride out downturns. If you aim to sell many years from now, what happens this year isnt a big risk to you. (2) Increase your knowledge. The more you know, the fewer mistakes youll likely make. Too many people buy stocks merely on tips from friends or strangers. Sometimes they dont even know what a company does. Learn about investing. Read all you can. Start with books by Peter Lynch or The Motley Fool. Read Warren Buffetts clear and educational letters to shareholders at berkshirehathaway.com. Hang out at the Fool online (fool.com), reading and asking questions. Invest only in companies and industries you understand well. (3) Limit your downside. Consider the risks companies disclose in their financial statements. Consider valuation. A company that seems undervalued (according to measures such as market capitalization, expected future earnings, and price-to-sales and price-to-earnings ratios) should offer less downside risk than an exciting high-flier. We can point you to promising stocks and funds in our newsletters. (4) Avoid futures, commodities, options, penny stocks, shorting and margin at least until youve learned a lot about them. These are extra-risky ways of investing. Some should be used only by experienced investors, while others are best avoided by all. Trends and PatienceBuying and holding any down-trending stock, including those you recommend, is dumb. Several years ago, I lost $8,000 waiting for Whole Foods to turn around. I no longer try to catch falling knives, no matter how great the stock might be in five years. With these erratic markets, we cant trust anyone or anything except the price of the stock and its trend. E.B.H., Charleston, S.C.The Fool Responds: Careful, there. Focusing just on stock price movements is more like speculating than investing. And where you expect a stock to be in five or more years matters, too, as many stocks take a while to get near their intrinsic value. Whole Foods stock crashed between 2006 and 2008, falling 36 percent, 12 percent and 75 percent. But it nearly tripled in 2009, and gained 84 percent in 2010, 38 percent in 2011 and nearly 35 percent in 2012. Many stocks are volatile from year to year; its the long run that should matter most. Both seriously troubled and healthy and growing companies see their stocks swoon now and then. Focus on the growers, and be patient.Whirlpool Spinning ProfitsWhirlpool (NYSE: WHR) has been delivering some surprises. For one thing, instead of laying off workers and moving jobs abroad, its hiring and making hundreds of millions of dollars worth of plant upgrades for manufacturing products in America. You know its name, but you may not realize that it has some other names under its roof, such as Maytag, KitchenAid, Jenn-Air, Amana, Roper, Estate and Admiral. In the companys second-quarter earnings report, revenue grew 4 percent to $4.7 billion, while earnings per share jumped 71 percent. CEO Jeff Fettig reported, Sales increased in every region of the world as we continued to expand margins. He added, Given the strong underlying trends in our business, we recently resumed our share repurchase program and are raising our fullyear outlook for EPS and free cash flow. Earnings are expected to grow some 26 percent annually over the next five years. The rebounding U.S. housing market is helping, and deals such as one with SodaStream to introduce a KitchenAid-branded home carbonation system is promising, too. Best of all, the stock is attractive and offers a dividend yield near 2 percent. Its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, recently near 17, is above its five-year average of 13.4, but its P/E based on next years earnings is just 10. (The Motley Fool owns shares of SodaStream and its newsletters have recommended it.) I trace my roots back to a Baltimore r oom and c ellar in 1 889. My first products included root beer, fruit syrups, juices and flavoring extracts. My motto was Make the Best Someone Will Buy It. Today Im a global leader in spices, herbs, seasonings, specialty foods and flavors, serving the food industry. My brands include my own name (which is my founders name), as well as Zatarains, OLD BAY, Simply Asia, Thai Kitchen, El Guapo, Kitchen Basics and Lawrys. My stock has grown by an annual average of 12.5 percent over the past 20 years. Who am I? (Answer: McCormick) Earnings SeasonQWhen, and what, is earnings season? T.W., Watertown, N.Y.AWere in the thick of it. Public companies are required to report on their earnings and financial condition every quarter, and they do so with three quarterly 10-Q reports and an annual 10-K report. Theyre free to structure their fiscal year as they want, and while many companies end their years at the conclusion of December, others choose the end of March or some other time. Earnings reports are typically issued a few weeks after the end of the quarter, and market watchers will see most American companies releasing their reports from early January through February, from early April through May, from early July through August, and from early October through November. These are our four earnings seasons. Theyre of interest to many investors because new data is available, and analysts and commentators will often issue fresh or revised opinions on companies. Savvy investors will learn to make sense of the reports themselves which isnt as hard as you might think. Stock prices can also surge or swoon on earnings report, when results are surprisingly good or bad. ***QI own some stocks with dividend yields below 5 percent and others with yields near 10 percent. Since all the companies seem sound, should I move all the money into the higherdividend ones? D.N., onlineAYou should focus your money on your best ideas, and be sure to look beyond yields, too. Remember that one yield might be 8 percent, but the company might be growing very slowly. Another might offer a 3 percent yield, while growing more rapidly and hiking its dividend regularly and significantly giving you bigger payouts over time. Got a question for the Fool?

In addition to luxury suites, the property will have feature a banquet facility, pool deck, meeting rooms, spa and fitness center. The project is scheduled for completion by the summer of 2014. Harbourside Place will include 60,000 square feet of retail shopping within three buildings. Seven restaurants, a 600-seat amphitheater for entertainment and public uses, a cultural center and parking garages are included in the plan. A main attraction for the 10-acre property will be a promenade overlooking 22 leased and nine public boat slips.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSA mystery solved, but much too lateIts funny how often ideas come to us the answer to a riddle weve been puzzling, the missing clue to a mystery weve been trying to solveonly after its too late. The answer arrives just as were drifting off to sleep, long after the moment to do anything about it has passed. Still we grab at the idea that eluded us, this gift come too late. In my final week in France, where I spent the summer, I attended a concert with a man Id been torn about my entire stay. He was older than I am, handsome, and charming. He had sophisticated tastes and a kind, gentle manner. He was the sort of man whom, in other circumstances, I might have loved. But he was in the middle of what he himself called a midlife crisis, and I watched as he worked to tear down the life he had spent the better part of his years building: a good marriage, a successful careerall the markers of success most of us covet. I know, he would say guiltily, I have been a lucky man. I wanted no part in the demolition or the wreckage I knew would follow. The concert was set in the center of the old city on a stage in the middle of castle walls. The scene glittered with an ephemeral beauty as a Spanish singer took the stage. My date and I sat side by side, impossibly chaste, as her rich, melancholy voice soared above the ramparts. The sad, lonely chords of the music seeped into my bones, and I wondered if it was affecting him too. I thought about reaching over and taking his hand, but then I stopped myself. What would that accomplish? Nothing good, I reasoned, so I sat with both hands firmly in my lap. The first performance ended and there was a brief intermission. I got up to find the bathroom and by the time I came back the lights had dimmed for the second act. Beside me, the mood had changed. Whereas before our knees pointed toward one another so that we sat leaning slightly together, my date had turned so that his back was to me. A chill, heavy as fog, had rolled in. Afterward, we spent most of the ride back to the village in silence. He said something briefly, angrily, about me abandoning him at the concert but it felt disingenuous, not the true reason for the sudden coldness between us. He drove without speaking and I sat in silence, trying to figure out where the night had turned. And like that, the summer ended. I saw him little our last days together, and when I did he was cordial but distant. I couldnt help but think I had done something wrong. Its only now, back home in Florida, that I see what it was. The answer came to me as I was falling asleep one night, still jet-lagged, still running the summer through my mind. It was so obvious that I wonder now, from here, how I ever could have missed it. I should have taken his hand. artisHENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 Visit www.Riverchase-FatFreeze.com Ra e for FREE treatment!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 I got into a bit of trouble for it, he admits. The next time, he was 11 or 12. He was intrigued by the stereo unit his parents had brought home. I took it apart, the shell of it, to look at the insides, he says. I didnt take it apart completely. As an adult, Mr. McLellan continues to take apart things, only now, he completely disassembles them down to the very last bolt, screw and pin. The objects have become more advanced, too, as sophisticated as a laptop and as complex as an upright piano. In 2009, he began photographing the disassembled objects. I wanted to do a standard photo of (a black rotary phone), he says, a still-life on a background, of the object complete, intact. But, despite his skill as a commercial photographer, he found the results boring. Instead, he says, he thought it might be neat to see it as an assembly diagram, IKEA-like. You know, when you order pieces or parts for things? They call them assembly diagrams, a parts schematic of the object: number one, two, three They number all the parts and pieces, and if you want to repair something, youd order part 35. So, following his obsession to delve into the guts of objects, the Torontobased photographer disassembled the phone, then took two different shots of it. One shows all the components artfully composed, the other captures the phone pieces in free fall. I intended for it to be a pair, he says. A phone neatly disassembled, and one flying through the air. One is an organized layout, with form and structure; the other is completely the opposite. Im setting the parts free, and theyre falling. The latter photographs were done using a high-power flash strobe and Photoshop. The flash is a quick pop, a nanosecond, he says. I organize it, in a few different levels, foreground, midground and background, and compose it together afterwards. I drop it in the air, and as its falling, I capture it. He experimented with 14 different objects. Then for the past year and a half, he took apart 50 different objects and took photographs of them. Those photos can now be seen in his recently released book, Things Come Apart: A Teardown Manual for Modern Living. ($29.95, Thames & Hudson) Wired.com called the book a geeky adoration of design, disassembly, and tinkering. The photos are enjoyable as pure eye candy, but they also illustrate the history of modern manufacturing. The book is organized by the size of the object disassembled. It starts with Small Things, where Mr. McLellan has taken apart things such as a mechanical pencil, a Swiss Army knife, a digital watch, a smartphone and an iPad. Medium-sized objects include, among other things, a record player, a blender, a toaster, a laptop, a mantel clock and the above-mentioned rotary telephone. Then there are the large items, such as an accordion, a sewing machine, a chainsaw, an espresso machine, a microwave oven and a snowblower. Mr. McLellan wasnt afraid to tackle extra-large objects either. The book contains photos of three: a bicycle, an upright piano and a twoseater light aircraft. The Zenith CH 650 aircraft was the only object he didnt take apart himself. Doing so wouldve taken two or three months and cost approximately $30,000, he says. So instead of disassembling one himself, he went to the manufacturer, in Mexico, Mo., and laid out the kit pieces in an airplane hanger. The objects hes shot range from older-designed items, such as a childs wagon, an accordion and a wind-up clock, to more modern items such as a laptop and a digital watch. Hes fascinated with the mechanics of the things. With the older objects, you can see the cause-and-effect, what happens when you push a button. With the digital objects, he says, its more about design, and how they worked all of those pieces into one unit. Some objects that he thought wouldnt be that complicated surprised him. The typewriter is a good example, he says. Its an interesting object; you can see all the mechanics. But I had no idea how many levers there actually were until I started to lay it out. Limited edition prints of his typewriter photos were so popular they sold out. The typewriter is involved in a lot of industries, in everyones life, he says. Everyone has a story about using typewriters. People have told me quite a few stories about their grandfather or father working with a typewriter. There are always memories related to that. He was drawn to disassembling an accordion because of his own memories of them. On weekends when his family would get together, his dad and aunt would play the accordion while one uncle played the banjo and another the guitar. Its an iconic musical instrument, Mr. McLellan says. It hasnt changed in years. I got (mine) from a repair shop in Toronto. They still repair them the way they did years ago. In May, the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago held an exhibition of 30 of his prints. He also had four displays, re-creating his layouts of a chainsaw, a wind-up clock, a telephone and a lawnmower. More recently, he spent a few days at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, where he took things apart and explained their inner workings. People could stand right next to him and disassemble objects alongside him. He acquires most of his objects from second-hand stores and salvage places, he says. Its very methodical, the way I take (an object) apart, he says. Im very much a part of the entire process, from taking it apart all the way to laying it out. If I dont take it apart, I dont understand how to lay it out in a way that makes sense to how the object works. For example, he says, when taking apart a camera, he doesnt want the eye piece to be next to the lens, because thats not how its situated on the camera. Although he organizes by function, hes also aware of the need to create an aesthetically pleasing layout, and rearranges the pieces, moving them around until hes happy with the result. Its a 3-D object on a 2-D plane, he says. Fifty objects and 21,959 components later, Mr. McLellan is still disassembling objects. For him, every day is like Christmas Eve in reverse.

Auditions for roles in productions of TheatreZones ninth season will be held Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14-15. So far, more than 100 professional actors are scheduled to travel from around the country in hopes of landing one or more of 50 available roles. Appointments are still available. Because Actors Equity Association actors can only work in AEA theaters, actors must travel frequently to find work, Mark Danni, TheatreZone founding artistic director, explains. National exposure through the acting communitys trade magazines and papers in key theater locations such as New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago and cities in Canada has helped attract actors to TheatreZone tryouts. Actors are asked to prepare 32 bars of a song and a contrasting selection. An accompanist will be provided, but actors must bring their own sheet music and be prepared to dance. Sides (copy dialogue Mr. Danni has chosen from the scripts) are posted at www.theatrezoneflorida.com. Local actors who would like to audition can make an appointment by e-mailing Mr. Danni at markdanni@ theatrezone-florida.com (preferred) or by calling 449-2323. AEA members without appointments will be seen throughout the audition days as time permits. TheatreZones ninth seasion opens in January with Andrew Lloyd Webbers Whistle Down the Wind and continues with High Society, Chess and Forever Plaid. AUDITION CALLSPhilharmonic Chorus needs voices Singers 18 years and older are invited to try out for the Naples Philharmonic Chorus.

ARTS COMMENTARYA red herring play about spies, Russians and loveRed Herring, a light-hearted spoof now at Theatre Conspiracy (through Aug. 24), is chock-full of spies, secret codes, G-men, and yes, herrings, both real ones and red ones. Its part thriller, part spy story and 100 percent comedy. There are code names, mistaken identities and secret identities. But its the play itself that pulls off the ultimate disguise: despite all the cloakand-dagger, its really about marriage and the nature of romantic relationships. Though Red Herring does have a scene with a sheet-covered corpse, its more about live people underneath the sheets together. It offers some great Dear Abby-like advice (Never marry a man who makes you cry) as well as many, many humorous lines, including this gem, spoken by a man to his fianc: I want you to be my wife so we wont ever argue again. Were presented with three different couples: a nave, young twosome whove just become engaged, a couple in their 30s who have been knocked around by life and love, and a more mature couple. The play opens with Frank (a lanky and laconic Mike Breen) and Maggie (Katie Pankow), two FBI agents in love with each other. Their snappy, post-sex banter is whip smart, and sounds as if its come off the pages of a pulp detective novel. (Both Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler get shout-outs during the play, by the way.) Mr. Breen plays Frank as the strong, silent type, while Ms. Pankows Maggie is confident and knows how to take care of herself. She has a breezy way about her, and the ability to toss off lines like a diva shrugging off a mink. When a medical examiner, a big supporter of Eisenhower for president, expresses his delight that she likes Ike, she retorts: I like Ike, I love Lucy and Im wild about Harry. Its this type of dialogue loopy, yet full of cultural references that makes this play so enjoyable. The second couple, in their 20s, are Lynn McCarthy (Erica Wagner), who just happens to be Sen. Joe McCarthys daughter, and her fianc James (Steven Coe) who just happens to be well, spying for Russia. James is so gawky and awkward, you wonder how he ever became a spy. How he came to love the daughter of a man who made a career out of hating Commies is never explained either, but hes so in love and eager hes like a puppy dog. Ms. Wagners Lynn is a blonde airhead, and when you meet her mother (a delightfully clueless Lauren Drexler), you understand why. Ms. Drexler, as Mrs. McCarthy, takes obliviousness to a whole new level. One of Mr. Coes and Ms. Wagners best moments comes when they have a long distance conversation. Their dialogue lurches and stops and starts as they attempt to talk to each other while not really hearing what the other is saying. Their miscommunication is due to a bad phone connection, but its a perfect metaphor for the misunderstandings that happen in relationships. Its a funny moment, yet also moving and somewhat wistful. Like most of the others in this six-person play, Ms. Drexler also plays other roles, including Mrs. Kravitz, a cranky landlady in love with Russian spy/fisherman Andrei (Scott Thompson). But shes perhaps funniest in her role as the snooty owner of a wedding dress shop who beckons her current husband (a meek and Pavlovian Mr. Thompson) by ringing a bell. Costume designer Diana Waldier helps differentiate the characters not only with clothing but realistic-looking wigs (though on opening night, one actor had his wig hanging out of the back of his pants like a bushy squirrel tail.) Director Rachael Endrizzi does a fine job with this, especially with the incidental music that plays between the scenes: slinky, saxophone music and other tunes (classic spy themes and thriller music) that add an atmosphere of suspense and camp. The stage crew bustles about in the darkness, like thieves or spies carrying props on and off the stage. The set (by Bill Taylor) takes a little getting used to. Its a fishing dock with multiple piers, nets and a billboard for kippers (Put a fish in your pocket!!!) with the piers doubling as beds, autopsy tables and an airport terminal. The set is wonderful, but so big it threatens to overwhelm some of the indoor scenes. The actors attack their roles enthusiastically, but the opening nights performance seemed a little rough around the edges at times. It sometimes missed that elusive ingredient that would spice it up and make it not just great, but spectacular. Some of the jokes (such as a sight gag involving handcuffs) didnt get the laughs they couldve. And on occasion, the timing seemed off. The playwright, Michael Hollinger, also wrote Opus, about a string quartet, which played a few seasons ago at the Florida Repertory Theatre. This could not be more different in tone or subject matter. Mr. Hollingers comedy arsenal is not only full, but varied. Red Herring contains word play, slapstick, parody, physical comedy, situational comedy and a generous amount of extremely funny lines. Theres even a scene where a clerk runs through a list of names starting with k, proving the adage that words that have a k sound are just funny. Mr. Breen has a great secondary role as a flummoxed priest, and Mr. Thompson does some fine acting as a drunken Russian. Theres not much happening in Southwest Florida during the summer, but thats not why you should go and see Red Herring. You should see it because its clever and fun and just sheer rib-ticklingly ridiculous. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOSteven Coe, Scott Thomson and Mike Breen in Red Herring.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) A shift in workplace management could be helpful for talented Leos and Leonas who have been waiting to have their accomplishments rewarded by receptive leadership. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A misunderstanding between you and someone you care for should be corrected immediately. This relationship is too important to lose over a bruised ego. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A welcome piece of good news helps clear the air in a family situation. A job-related incident also eases as more information provides a clearer focus on the problem. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Quick action to heal bruised feelings pays off in a big way. Now youll be able to move forward with your plans without that problem holding you back. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your creativity combined with a positive attitude should give you a considerable edge in finding a way to get around the negativity youve run into. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) That sudden streak of stubbornness could cause some problems. Try to be more open to helpful suggestions and more flexible in making needed changes. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Now that that special relationship appears to be well and truly restored, you can spend more time dealing with those long-needed workplace changes. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A new opportunity sounds promising. But watch out for any conditions that might be attached. Before making a decision, ask that each one be explained in detail. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty might upset some people, but you inevitably win more admirers for having the courage to tell the truth when others are more likely to scramble for cover. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your efforts to defend your project begin to show favorable results. You should soon be able to win over even the most determined detractors who had lined up against it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You win praise for your selfless efforts in a very difficult situation. But be careful not to allow your generous nature to be exploited by those who have their own agenda. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A trusted colleague sheds light on a recent spate of puzzling workplace situations. This should give you the information you need to bring to your superiors attention.

YesThink of your favorite perfect television family. There are plenty to choose from. Now imagine that the family led a double life as drug smugglers, moving dope across the border and evading authorities while scoring big paydays to give their lives a bit of excitement. Hard as it may be to envision the Huxtables (The Cosby Show) or Seavers (Growing Pains) pushing weed, it is an ideal and unsuspecting cover. Its so convincing, in fact, that in Were The Millers small-time drug dealer David (Jason Sudeikis) uses the perfect family faade after hes offered $100,000 to bring back a little bit of weed from Mexico. The little bit turns out to be two tons, and thats not the only lie the scumbag and pet orca-having drug dealer Brad (Ed Helms) tells David. Still, Davids biggest problem isnt the weed its that he doesnt have a family. So he recruits: Hated neighbor and stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) plays his wife, likable latchkey teenager Kenny (Will Poulter) agrees to be his son and homeless teen Casey (Emma Roberts) will be the daughter. David rents an RV, they all dress like a conservative suburban family and off to Mexico they go. Together, they are the Millers. All is smooth with getting into Mexico and the pickup. Its the road home thats trouble. A cop (Luis Guzman) knows what theyre up to and wants an unsavory favor in order to let them pass, a drug dealer (Tomer Sisley) is on their trail, and they happen to befriend a squeaky-clean family headed by an over-emotional mother (Kathryn Hahn) and DEA agent father (Nick Offerman). Director Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball) provides an upbeat, spirited vibe thats consistent with TV sitcoms even though the R-rated content is far more risqu. To wit, he hits many of the beats you expect, including easy jokes like Casey pouting (as kids are wont to do on a road trip) this vacation sucks, David pulling over to yell at everyone, and David and Rose giving the fifth degree to the loser boy (Mark L. Young) Casey brings home on a date. Because its a given that this group of recluses will start acting like a real family, these predictable moments are understandable. Thankfully, theyre often pretty amusing in and of themselves. More importantly, the rest of the movie is flat-out funny. Theres a weed baby named Lebron who meets an unfortunate demise. Mr. Sudeikis has great one-liners throughout, particularly when he gets the idea for the perfect family routine and later as they enter the drug dealers Mexican compound. Mr. Offerman and Ms. Hahn are great at making awkward sexual moments amusing, Ms. Aniston is edgy/sexy/funny (as she was in Horrible Bosses) and Mr. Poulter, an up-and-coming 20 year-old out of England, gets to do one thing that will make guys incredibly jealous and one thing that will make guys incredibly grateful theyre not him. Such is the life of a young actor in this type of raunchy comedy. If the type of humor, story or playful spirit arent enough for you to give Were The Millers a shot, fair enough. But here are three words that might just convince you after all: Jennifer Aniston striptease.

Summer Savings at Naples Harbour FLORIDA WRITERSA new kind of sleuth joins the noir patrol No Regrets, Coyote by John Dufresne. W.W. Nort on. 352 pages. Hardcover $25.95. One reason I found so much to enjoy in this highly original version of Florida noir is that the author seems to have had a blast writing it. Its as if he responded to the challenge, perhaps offered around the table at a writers retreat or watering hole, of placing No Regrets, Coyote (a phrase from a Joni Mitchell lyric) into a sentence and then writing a novel titled with the same phrase. Mr. Dufresnes novel is filled with the oddball names of its large cast of characters, outlandishly funny puns, all kinds of lists and friendly symbolism. By naming his neighboring South Florida towns Eden and Melancholy, the author tells all we need to know about the dream and the reality of a material culture sleaze factory that one can, ironically, hold so dear. But he shows us much more. Meet protagonist Wylie Coyote Melville. Wylie, who has a practice as a family and individual therapist, also does volunteer forensic consulting for the Eden Police Department. His special skill, as he puts it (hes the narrator), is his ability to read faces and furniture. I can look at a person, at his expressions, his gestures, his clothing, his home and his possessions, and tell you what he thinks, if not always what he is thinking. Interesting disclaimer. In his private practice, Wylie helps his clients shape their lines into stories, so that the lives finally make some sense. A lack of narrative structure, as you know, will cause anxiety. Who is Wylie, or Mr. Dufresne, talking to here? Other writers? Book reviewers? How much anxiety will he treat us to? The case at hand seems to be a murder-suicide: Five bodies, one weapon, one suspect, much blood, says Detective Sergeant Carlos OBrien as he summons Wylie over the phone on Christmas Eve. But Wylie is suspicious of the confession/suicide note typed by one Chafin R. Halliday. The novel progresses with Wylie being able to do some investigating, though often roadblocks are set in his path. Just as often, his pursuit of the truth about this massacre is taken off track by the vagaries of his own life: episodes involving his family especially his obnoxious sister Venise and his demented father; episodes involving a wide r ange of nutty friends and acquaintances; and episodes philJASONpkjason@comcast.net Dufresne

All provide opportunities for Mr. Dufresne to expand his dazzling portrait of the South Florida milieu. Often enough, Wylie is in the company of his friend and frequent helper Bay Lettique, a magician and gambler who has too many contacts in the Everglades County underworld. Bay is intriguing enough to be the central figure in a future novel, and not far behind is Perdita Curry, a 50ish reporter with preposterously red hair whose business card reads: Perdita Curry TrueCrime Novels. By having Wylie innocently wonder if something could be factual and made-up at the same time, Mr. Dufresne offers one of many playful asides about the writing game. What slowly c omes into (partial) focus is a situation in which crime and its occasional punishment is managed by an interlocking directorate of power players and their underlings on both sides of the law. Wylies primary adversary is Officer Shanks, who finds numerous ways to undermine Wylies investigation and threaten his life. Wylies supposed friend, Carlos, is never fully supportive (although it was Carlos himself who brought Wylie into the case). Cops and criminals are all tangled up in webs of mutual self-interest, and the doings of the witness protection program, which plays a large role in this story, are ineffective or corrupted or both; it might as well be called the witless protection program. The novel moves toward its resolution with a high-powered romp through Fairbanks and other parts of northern Alaska. What begins as a final attempt to resolve differences between Wylie and his dying father Myles becomes a dark farce in which the crescendo of violence surrounding Wylie gains the mechanical frenzy of a berserk pinball machine. Bold wit, a fascinating sense of place, zany characters and provocative ambiguities regarding the meaning and possibility of justice make No Regrets, Coyote a powerful literary experience. For all the jokes and hijinks, it is no laughing matter.

The plays are: Point Last Seen by Scott Organ When two friends face the fact that one of them is about to be fired, the men and their wives reassess their lives.

The Butcher by Gwydion Suilebhan Based on a real event, this play tells the tale of two strangers (a housewife and the butcher and sole proprietor of a Halal supermarket in suburban Virginia) who witness a peculiar and disturbing act of violence. The staged reading of The Butcher is set for 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17. Out of Orbit by Jennifer Maisel When a teenage girl is diagnosed with a learning disability, it could provide the answer to years of questions.

TORY BURCH | VERA BRADLEY WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET New Items Below Wholesale Prices! Feet a common object of collectors obsessionsA realistic replica of a full-size foot in a sandal seems like a strange choice of ornament for the average home. But feet and shoes have been popular ornaments for centuries. The foot of an ancient black man wearing a two-strap gold sandal was made by the modern artist Piero Fornasetti to be placed on a table in a modern house. The 3 -by-9-inch foot is life-size. A 19th-century bronze candleholder was made in the shape of a foot in a sandal with an extended large toe topped by a cup to hold a candle. One 20th-century advertisement for a foot powder was a plaster replica of an oversized bare foot. A wooden bare foot, a little smaller than life-size, was carved by a 1920s folk artist as a gift for his podiatrist; it was to be used as a paperweight. A sleek modern bronze bare foot paired with a bronze hand was made by a 1970s Danish artist. Victorians seem to have preferred feet wearing shoes as ornaments. Some shoes were padded to be pincushions, and pressed glass shoes with no special use are easy to find at antiques shows. A podiatrist we know has a famous collection of shoe-shaped objects in his office more than 100 items. Collecting by shape is just one way to organize a hobby. Most popular are cats, dogs, ladys heads, angels, buildings and, of course, hands and feet. Q: We have four Hitchcock-style chairs made by the Boling Chair Co. of Siler City, N.C. We have been unable to find any information about this company. Can you help? A: Boling Chair Co. started out in 1901 as Siler City Bending Co. One of the companys founders, Mal Boling, rounded up new investors in 1904 and reorganized the company as High Point Bending and Chair Co. It made bentwood parts for other companies before producing its own bentwood furniture. It later expanded its furniture lines. The companys name became Boling Chair Co. in 1956 or and then Boling Co. in 1979. Today its based in Mt. Olive, N.C., and is called Boling Furniture Co. If your chairs are marked Boling Chair Co., they were made between 1956 and 1979. Chairs like it sell online for about $50 apiece.Q: I have a solid-brass Batman belt buckle I think is from the 1940s. Its marked National Periodical Publications, Inc. and has the number 0016 on the back. Can you tell me what year it was made?A: Your Batman belt buckle was made in the early 1940s. National Periodical Publications published the first comic books that included original material, not reprints of comic strips. The company started out in 1934 as National Allied Publications. It has operated under various names, including Detective Comics and DC Comics. The company published the first Batman comic in 1939. Your Batman belt buckle probably is worth less than $100. Q: I have an antique grip machine that was used in my grandparents tavern a century ago. The machine is red metal and works with a penny. It was manufactured by D. Gottlieb & Co. of Chicago. A bell rings when you get the meter so high. There is a chart on the front that has different ages and grip numbers for men and women. How much is it worth? A: Your grip machine is not quite as old as you think. D. Gottlieb & Co. was founded by David Gottlieb in 1927. Originally the company made pinball machines. Gottliebs countertop grip tester was first made in 1928. The machine tested grip and arm strength and was a money-maker for stores, taverns, barbershops and other retail businesses. Keys were needed to open up the back and get the money out. The grip tester was in and out of production until at KOVEL: ANTIQUES l b c S f p terryKOVELnews@floridaweekly.com Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988) created this lifesize bronze foot to be used as an ornament. It sold for $393 at Humler & Nolan, an auction gallery in Cincinnati.

Naples Princess... least the late 1940s. Gottlieb made hundreds of different games. A couple of years ago, a D. Gottlieb & Co. grip tester with keys sold for $480.Q: Several years ago, I received a sixpiece set of little antique crystal bowls and matching tiny shovels. The set probably dates from the late 19th or early 20th century. Each little bowl is about 2 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter. What were the bowls and shovels used for? And what is the set worth?A: Your little bowls were used to hold salt. Theyre called open salts, standing salts or salt cellars. An open salt with a shovel-like spoon and a little pepper shaker were set next to each place-setting at the dining table. Instead of shaking salt, diners used the shovel to sprinkle salt on their food. Sets like yours dont sell for high prices today. We have seen six-piece sets sell online for $25 to $50.Q: Years ago I donated many valuable toys and games to various charities. Is there any way to get these sentimental items back?A: Once things are given away, you cant get them back. Charities usually sell the items at resale shops and use the money to support their programs. Toys in good condition also may have been distributed to children in need. You could have taken a tax deduction for the value of the toys at the time you donated them, but now you can be happy that your donation helped the charities you chose.Tip: When repairing antique jewelry, never eliminate any marks or inscriptions. For example, when sizing a ring, keep the carat marks and hallmarks. If the shank cant be cut, use a ring guard instead. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

WWW .F ACEBOOK.COM/N APLESF LORIDA W EEKLY.COM Forgiveness BY NANCY REGES MURVINE   It can never happen again. The gate makes sure of that. The rusted barrier sits on the old wooden pier like a grandmothers gaudy dinner ring on an arthrit ic finger to be pried off only after death. And the pier is certainly on its last leg. One good blow of hurricane wind. Gone. Just like Tommy. But none of this was Tommys fault. The gate was erected years after the acci dent. The decay took more than five of Tommys lifetimes to reach this threshold of extinction. The fault is all mine. Donna was Tommys new girlfriend. School had just begun but Tommy had decided that the age of 10 was the perfect time to learn about girls. I reminded him that I was a girl, but thats different, he responded, and I guess he was right. We had grown up side by side on the bay waters of Islamorada, more like brother and sister than neighbors. We camped together on the beachy edges of each others backyards. Inside lantern lit tents we made plans to become world famous Everglades guides. We plotted to sell our siblings to tourists. When he lost his first tooth, he helped yank mine out with a promise that it wouldnt hurt. It was the first promise he ever broke, but not the last. Our fathers erected the pier togeth er two summers before, in 1958. Tom mys dad had a dock building busi ness, so the heavy, intricate work of the pilings was up to him. The handnailed deck boards were my fathers labor of love. We used Tommys woodburning kit to furrow our names into the door of the little shelter at the piers end. The kit was a birthday present that Tom mys mom told my mother in the secret whispers of women was no gift for an eight year old. Our fathers had simply warned, If you burn it down, you rebuild it. Tommy taught me how to fish like a pro from that pier. I showed him how to do the American crawl out so far into the bay our lungs tired before our legs. We spit watermelon seeds into the night air and swung our legs over the edge until we lost feeling down to our toes or were called home by a fathers whistle. Just this summer we had pricked our fingers with the barbs on our fish hooks, twisted our bloody fingers together, and swore allegiance forever. That was the second promise he would break, and the last. Donna was the cause, but the guilt was mine alone. Jealousy in a 10-year-old knows no bounds. Donnas hair flamed like sunset. Her accent I would learn later was a Boston brogue, but to us it was from some exotic land. Her freckles formed constellations across her blanched face. Everyone was in love with the new stu dent. Especially Tommy. Smitten was his mothers word. Goofy was mine. So when we started hearing news of a monster hurricane named Donna turning westward in the southeastern Bahamas, I began my taunts. On the playground I shouted the newspaper headline, Don nas a killer. Her face flushed bright red and tears flowed, and the teacher demanded I apologize. My insincerity coerced more tears. Crybaby, I hissed as we headed home early to make prepa rations that would keep us out of school for the rest of the week. By the next day, the square red flags with their black centers signaled the approaching hurricane that would set its bearing right over us. About half the families we knew were leaving, the gale force winds at their backs by noon on Friday, but we were staying. Its just part of being a Florida Cracker, my father smiled, trying to assure my mother that staying was a perfectly sane option. Tom mys family remained undecided until my father suggested we all hunker down together in our house. Ours was a sturdy stilt house; and, as my father explained, three generations, including his 10-yearold self, had survived the labor day hur ricane of 5 tucked safely inside. He was living proof we would be fine riding out the storm here and in a better position to begin cleaning up right away. The windows shuttered out the real storm. We were left to imagine the wind and rain as we counted thuds against the walls. All day Tommy moped about, wondering aloud if Donnas family would even come back. Dinner was cold cut sandwiches and milk. Refrigerator food first, mom explained when my brother asked for a PB&J. The whining could have easily come from Tommys sour face. We set up a game of Monopoly, but Tommy quit after one go-round on the board even though I had let him take the car for his game piece just to make him happy. How could he be so ungrateful? How could he miss her that much? Without the usual clock of the bay sky, our parents easily herded all five weary children off to bed well before our usual time. When the electricity failed, our parents gave in, too. We formed a line of sleeping bags in the middle of the living room away from the windows. In the darkness, the only way I knew we were alive was the breathing. I recognized the breaths of sleep, and I knew that Tommy, right next to me, was still awake. Thats when I suggested the unthinkable. If Tommy was so in love with Donna, maybe he ought to go shout her name into the wind. Maybe she would hear it up in Miami or whatever cowardly direction they had headed. Very funny! he muttered, matching my sarcasm and finishing with a stony silence. Reports would later testify to the tim ing of the rest of the night. The eye came over Islamorada around 2:30 Sat urday morning. I was aware of the calm and relieved at what I thought was the storms end. I wanted to say something to Tommy but spite was stronger, and I let silence hold the anger between us. I dont know when he left. I felt the rustle of his sleeping bag but promised myself he was just going to the bathroom. I fell asleep while the eye passed. The second wave of winds brought me to full atten tion. I reached out to Tommys bag. It was still empty. My heart thudded as I crawled across the floor and out the only door latched from the inside at the far back of the house. No one would know we were gone. I would race to the pier where I knew he would be. I made the first two stairs, but where there should have been another step and another down to the shore from the houses perch, I felt water. A wall of water so high the pier would be an easy 6 feet under its surface. I remember screaming. The wind swal lowed every word. I remember my father and Tommys grabbing me and pulling me inside. The banging door, not my terror, sounded the alarm that brought them to me. I try not to remember anything else. Today, though, I am remembering as I look out to the bay from my old family home. It has been more than 50 years since Hurricane Donna, and I have not been back here in almost 20. My brother inherited the house from my parents about that time. Now he is ready to retire and move north, which to us Crackers means Fort Myers at the very most. I made it as far as Everglades City, close to my work as a park guide. He has asked me to come and see if there is anything I want before he clears out the house which goes to closing with new owners in a few weeks. I oblige but come up empty-handed as I knew I would. Before I leave, I walk down to the old pier, as wizened with age as I am. Some boards wear the yellow of new wood. None are original. All were torn apart in the hurricane. In dreams, I still imagine them lifting up over the surge of water and tossing Tommy into the whirl of Donnas jetsam. Two days after Donna, when people were beginning to return to discover what they had lost, we already knew ours. His body was found, caught on a piling under the dismantled shack. No one believes he made it to the pier that morning. Except me, who taught him to swim. This September afternoon, the pier points to the clouds that are building on the horizon for the usual summer shower. The water will only give up its blue hue when the rains begin.   Even if I could open the rusted gate, I wouldnt. There is nothing here that I want, I tell my brother and head to my car. What I really mean, but cannot say, is that nothing that I want is here. WRITING CHALLENGE

Nature Birds of the Gods When Europeans first saw the plumes of these fabulous creatures in the 16th century, they believed they must be from heaven and called them birds of paradise. Follow young scientists who find and film these birds of unimaginable color and beauty. Tommy Emmanuel Masterpiece Mystery: The Lady Vanishes CONTRACT BRIDGEIt pays to plan the playBY STEVE BECKERA conscientious declarer starts the play of each hand with the feeling that if anything can go wrong, it will go wrong. He then attempts to guard against every type of misfortune he can think of. So when South first views the dummy at four hearts, he takes the somber view that he could lose a spade, a heart and two clubs and go down one. He recognizes that he might not have to lose a trump trick, and that he will lose only one club trick if West has the ace, but he starts by assuming he will be unlucky on both counts. His next step is to try to overcome this imagined bad lie of the cards. He notes that if the spades are favorably divided, he might be able to establish a spade winner to take care of one of his losing clubs, and that this possibility can be pursued without relinquishing his other chances for the contract. Accordingly, he wins the diamond with the king and immediately leads a spade. West follows low, and East takes the jack with the king. Let's say East returns a diamond to the ace, whereupon South ruffs a low spade. Declarer now cashes the A-K of trumps, discovering that he does in fact have to lose a trump trick, and then ruffs a diamond with dummy's ten. When he next trumps another low spade, West's ace falls, and the contract suddenly becomes secure. South later discards a club on the queen of spades and winds up losing only a spade, a heart and a club. Note that if declarer ignores the spades at the outset and instead places his hopes on a favorable trump split or on finding West with the club ace, he goes down. The practice of seeking a way at the outset to offset potential bad luck pays handsome dividends from time to time.

I loved the book, so I am curious about the series. Annette D. in ConnecticutA: Lifetime recently announced a premiere date for its newest drama, which features an all-star cast headlined by Emmy Award-winner Julia Ormond, Madchen Amick, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Rachel Boston as a family of witches living in the secluded seaside town of East Haven. Witches of East End will cast its spell beginning Sunday, Oct. 6, at 10 p.m. Q: Can you tell me what Mary McCormack has been doing since In Plain Sight ended? Paula S., via e-mailA: You can catch Mary now in the independent film Escape from Polygamy, which premieres Saturday, Aug. 24, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime. Beginning Oct. 3, Mary returns to series television in the new NBC single-camera comedy Welcome to the Family, which also stars Mike OMalley (Glee), Ella Rae Peck (Deception) and Ricardo Chavira (Desperate Housewives). Family gets a prime spot, airing after NBC comedy mainstay Parks and Rec, hopefully helping to fill the void that The Office has left in the networks Thursday night comedy block. Q: I thought Tom Cruise was passing the Mission: Impossible mantle to Jeremy Renner. Now I hear Tom will star in the fifth movie. Is that true? Gerald L., via e-mailA: Yes and no. Tom will star in Mission: Impossible 5, which is scheduled for a 2015 release (most likely summer). Jeremy will be his costar, but he was never brought on to replace Tom; he was added to the roster to partner with him. And as long as Tom keeps drinking from the Fountain

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 My name is Dr. T Bryant and I have something urgent to share with you. This secret literally has the power to change your life forever. In fact, its the key to getting you in the best shape of your life. My goal is to help people look and feel better than they ever have before. And Iron Tribe Fitness is by far the most effective system for helping people do just that. Just take a look at the picture above...those results are typical! In those pictures, youll see just a few of the shocking transformations from our members of Iron Tribe in Birmingham, AL. Take, for example, Chuck Andrews who transformed his body from Pillsbury Dough Boy to Tarzan in only a few short months. Chuck is not alone. Its because of these kinds of results that Iron Tribe -which started as hobby with 12 friends in a 400 square foot garage -has exploded into a national franchise. However, if you want these kind of results, you need to act right now before this opportunity passes by. Why the urgency? Because Iron Tribe Fitness only accepts 300 members per location. Not 301. This cap on our membership develops a tight and exclusive community of friends. Indeed, a Tribe. We pride ourselves on being much more than a gym. We are a Tribe of athletes. To show you Im serious, heres an offer you simply cant refuse: If youll give me just 120 days, youll get in the best shape of your life, or Ill refund 100% of your investment. Not only that, Ill also buy you the latest release of P90X for wasting your time. Thats how confident I am youll love being a part of the Tribe! But just like all other Iron Tribe locations ... these 300 membership slots will sell out! Dont get put on a waiting list. ACT NOW!Dr. T Bryant Manager PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: The Chapel Grill, 811 Seventh Ave. S., Naples; 206-4310 Casual yet stylish, this restaurant in the 65-year-old former First Baptist Church is packing the pews, so to speak, with a wide-ranging menu that puts a new spin on some familiar dishes. The calamari, for instance, is strewn with chorizo sausage and tempura-fried julienned carrots. Because marinara would be too mundane for such a concoction, the chef dreamed up a delicious mangorum sauce that complements the calamari nicely. A single duck-filled spring roll seemed chintzy for $11.80, but it was nonetheless delicious. Seafood or steak, Chapel Grill seems blessed for success. A New York strip was perfectly grilled to medium-rare yet achieved a crusty exterior that most home grillers would envy. The well-marbled 14-ounce cut was dry-aged for 21 days, which imparted a noticeable richness. Red rock cod Florentine was a hefty fillet with thick flakes of moist white meat within its crisp oven-baked Parmesan crust. Inventive cocktails like a vodka gimlet with balsamic-laced strawberries and fresh basil, or a bourbon highball spiked with The Kings Ginger liqueur and a kiss of cloves are sinfully indulgent. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2012 Coast, Edgewater Beach Hotel, 1901 Gulf Shore Blvd. N., Naples; 4032181 This chic, modern restaurant serves internationally inspired cuisine to hotel guests as well as visitors lucky enough to find the Edgewater. Coast has a sleek, sophisticated lounge vibe: black leather chairs, white linen tablecloths, shiny wooden floors, a dramatic cluster of red and gold pendant lights hanging under a huge, black ceiling medallion. Modern-styled couches for cocktail hour edge the dining space (which is really just an open extension of the lobby, with chill-out music providing a hip backdrop). Floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the palm-lined courtyard, swimming pools and the gulf beach just beyond. But Coast has substance as well as style. In just nine dishes, the entre list ranges from the simple, family-friendly appeal of a burger with sea salt fries to the hearty comfort of a roasted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and leeks to the up-market sophistication of beef tenderloin medallions with red wine demi-glace. Coastal comfort dishes such as shrimp and grits are as dazzling as globe-spanning creations like Moroccan-spiced lamb meatballs and diver scallops with an Asian flair. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2012 Figs Grille, 25987 Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 390-1700Sam Tadros, the chef behind the popular Sam-Bucco Bistro in North Naples, has another winning concept with this exploration of the cuisines of Turkey, Spain, Morocco, Lebanon and France. When you cross the threshold, its easy to forget youre in a commercial strip center. Egyptian tapestries adorn the walls in the garnet and gold dining room. Whichever country you decide to visit for your main course, your meal should begin with the mezze platter of hummus and baba ganoush as well as charry and sweet grilled eggplant chunks and cucumber salad served with lightly pickled vegetables. You cant go wrong with one of several Turkish kebabs or with the filet medallions with grilled shrimp, garnished lavishly with caramelized onions, port wine sauce and fig chutney. Lush (chocolate marquise) or light (lemon semifreddo), dessert shouldnt be missed either. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2011 Komoon Thai Sushi and Ceviche, 1575 Pine Ridge Road; 596-9991The unlikely menu at Komoon offers a wealth of options, all done well. The success of the Naples branch has spawned a new Bonita Springs location where Home Sushi Thai previously stood. While we havent tried that one yet, the food at the Naples location bodes well for the new spot. The sushi is artfully created from a list of possibilities from straight-up sashimi and sushi to a flashy green dragon roll, starring shrimp and avocado. A mixed seafood ceviche filled with white fish, shrimp, calamari, clams and red onion had a palate-pleasing balance of hot spice and cool seafood. From the cooked Japanese menu, the beef yaki soba was dead on and the Kiss Me with tofu revealed its Thai roots with its gingery garlic sauce. Servers were efficient and hospitable, the room is cozy and stylish. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2012 Maria DAnna Cafe, 300 U.S. 41 N., Naples; 263-6892With but a handful of exquisitely dressed tables, Maria DAnna Cafe makes guests feel like royalty. A charming and talented pair, the eponymous owner, Maria Stelmach, and chef Ryan Flood, an alumnus from The Ritz-Carlton, ensure that the hospitality and food are both above par. The cafe serves lunch and dinner. Our dinner there was a stunner, from the fresh shrimp on skewers with pineapple and pepper to the smoked salmon crepes and the just-caught black grouper on red rice and pearl couscous with fresh, locally sourced vegetables, chickpea puffs, cucumber dill lemongrass yogurt sauce and ginger beet paint. The Polish platter (kielbasa and cabbage, cabbage rolls and velvety pierogi) was perfect, too, as were the chocolate zabaglione and coconut cake.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 700 Fifth Ave. S., Naples, FL 34102 239.659.7008 | www.VerginaRestaurant.comVergina, Where Old World QualityMeets New World Innovation The octopus is a widely used mollusk in many of the worlds cuisines. Octopus is a low calorie, low fat, and highly nutritious food, and speci cally high in vitamin B-12. In the Mediterranean, it is an everyday food, but recently it is gaining popularity in the United States as well. Octopus is extremely versatile as it can be prepared in a variety of ways and served cold, warm or hot. At Vergina, we prepare it grilled, served with creamy burrata, red and yellow bell peppers, onion, arugula and a garbanzo bean cream. DID YOU KNOW? Reservations Recommended.Despite growing up on a diet of bland Midwestern meat-and-potatoes cooking or perhaps in reaction to it I have a strong affinity for cuisines that shake up and wake up the palate: Thai soups and noodles laced with chilies, lemongrass and garlic; Indian curries infused with myriad spices and herbs; Mexican salsas and sauces amped up with chilies, onions, limes and cilantro. Southwest Florida is grossly underserved when it comes to Indian and only slightly better for Thai food, but theres no shortage of Mexican restaurants to choose from. The best of them dont shy away from the humble but powerfully flavored dishes of Americas neighbor to the south, and they dont bury the foods heritage under layers of cheese and sour cream or inside Nacho Doritos to mollify American tastes. The newest arrival, Salado Pedros, opened a month ago at Gulf Coast Town Center in Estero. Its owned by the people behind Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant off Summerlin Road in South Fort Myers. Since its not connected to a chain, theres reason to hope it might have a less middle-of-the-road corporate approach. But while some of the dishes we tried hit the mark, others fell flat, lacking the punch of flavor expected. The tableside guacamole presentation, for example, failed to exploit an opportunity to tailor a truly fresh, vibrant dip to customers tastes. A fried appetizer came out soft and soggy instead of crisp and crusty. On the positive side, entrees were better executed and offered a wide range of choices. If all else fails, a splash of salsa will liven up a lackluster plate. The restaurant is billed as a Veracruz-style cantina and tequila bar, and it has some appealing decorative touches. Punched-tin star-shaped lamps dangle from the pressed-tin ceilings, and theres lots of stone and wood surface. Salado Pedros has more tequilas than you could probably sample in a lifetime. Its one liquor Ive never developed an appreciation for sipping, but that didnt prevent me from enjoying a fruity specialty margarita made with Herradura Blanco tequila, Solerno blood orange liqueur and fresh lime juice ($9). The margs are generously poured, so one could and did last for a whole meal. The socalled Perfect Margarita ($10), using Patron Reposado tequila, packed a punch of fresh lime flavor. A free basket of warm tortilla chips arrived with a cup of salsa for snacking while we settled on our order. The smooth, darkred salsa balanced a charred smokiness with the tang of citrus and just a hint of heat. We decided to start with the aforementioned guacamole ($11) and an order of jalapenos rellenos ($7). The presentation started out promisingly, with the server wheeling up a kitchen cart and slicing and scooping avocados into a mixing bowl. He asked if we wanted chilies in the mix, but that was the extent of the input he sought. Salado Pedros could take a few cues from the highly polished guac artisans at Cantina Laredo, who ask patrons how much garlic they want, if they like cilantro and so on. As it was, this rendition needed garlic and more salt but we were stuck with it. The jalapeos rellenos, mini versions of the chili rellenos served in most Mexican restaurants, also disappointed. The batter was well browned but mushy instead of crisp; the Cotija cheese-stuffed peppers basically collapsed into limp little tubes like overcooked rigatoni. We wondered if the plate had been left sitting under a heat lamp for a long time. We did like the lime crma they were drizzled with, as well as the avocado-ranch dip on the side, but there was no getting around the basic letdown of the main attraction. Our well-trained, amiable server cleared dishes promptly and inquired about our satisfaction without being too intrusive. A manager also was visiting tables in the dining room, which is separated by a bank of booths from the bar area. The place grew busier and louder as the evening wore on. Despite the adult lure of the tequila bar, families already have found Salado Pedros and can relax in its comfortable atmosphere without worrying about noisy children disturbing other patrons. There are many ways to go when it comes to the main course: seven kinds of taco fillings alone, from classic chorizo and al pastor to nuevo Mexicano ahi tuna with bacon and mango pico de gallo; a half-dozen combination platters allow diners to sample trios of tacos, tostadas, tamales; molcajetes offer a fajitalike DIY experience. Practically spilling off the plate, the generous Baja platter ($16) included a tilapia taco, an enchilada stuffed with roasted pork and a ceviche tostada. I appreciated the fact that Salado Pedros doesnt add beans and rice to every order like a lot of restaurants do; frankly, its filler food and usually unremarkable. The fried fish remained crunchy in its tortilla despite layers of cabbage slaw, cheese and avocado crema, and the flour tortillas held together well between bites. Less complicated, the enchilada was practically all tasty shredded pork, which was tender and juicy. Strewn with tender, citrus-laced shrimp, bay scallops and octopus, the tostada brought a palate-cleansing wave of simplicity and freshness to the platter. My companion ordered the molcajete carne ($19), a meat-lovers combination of chorizo sausage, strips of steak and chicken accompanied by strips of bell and chili peppers and sweet potatoes. Enveloped in a lush red tomato-based sauce with hints of chipotle and other chilies, the contents of the lava-rock bowl bubbled like a cauldron. Seriously, you have to be patient and let it cool off for a bit before spooning the contents into tortillas or risk searing your mouth. The crumbled sausage thickened the texture of the salsa roja, which clung to the tender strips of steak and whiteand dark-meat chicken. The molcajete could easily be shared, but my companion happily took leftovers home for another meal and was given extra tortillas after asking. Desserts include a deep-fried tortillawrapped Key lime cheesecake and sweet, fruit-laced versions of tamales and quesadillas. Already satiated, we settled on sharing a basic but deliciously creamy flan ($5). As we left, we agreed wed like to try more dishes at Salado Pedros. But we might just skip the so-so appetizers next time.
