During a recent Lee County Commission meeting in downtown Fort Myers, Cleo accompanied by staff from Lee County Domestic Animal Services and the Gulf Coast HOMES SEE HOME, A8 At the watery end of the rainiest summer in years, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, FEMA, has come calling on South Florida with plans for new flood-risk maps. Property owners who find themselves in the red zones of the new maps are likely to have to pay more for flood insurance in the future. Conversely, some property may be drawn out of high-risk zones, and thus have the chance to pay less, officials say. FEMA will reveal the new map proposals at public meetings this week in Martin, Okeechobee, Glades and Hendry counties in the central and eastern peninsula near Lake Okeechobee; Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties on the southwest coast, meanwhile, have more contemporary maps that were redrawn in recent years with some troubling and unanticipated effects. Is bad water management the reason for the new maps, and thus a chance for federally mandated insurance companies to make a lot more money? No, says Sarah Heard, a Martin County commissioner and clean-water advocate. Weve been begging for revised FEMA maps for a decade. This is just the federal government moving slowly. We knew the old maps were obsolete these new maps are way more accurate, and we can provide protection for people who need it most. The coincidence of excess water and FEMA, however, is startling.

COMMENTARYBombing SyriaDuring the long ambivalent afternoon of President Barack Obamas fickle foreign policy, Americans in general and people who inhabit the states of Colorado and Florida in particular have come to a clear but cloudy revelation: Its raining. Too much. No matter whats happening in the world no matter who is gassing whom, bayonetting whom, machine-gunning whom, or bombing whom, and no matter that the president is uncertain what he should do about it all the water keeps rising. Since I happen to inhabit both the states of Colorado and Florida, mentally speaking, and since you can often find me wandering around in either a high state or a low state, I am particularly aware of this fact, along with its consequences. When the water rises, people get flooded people like my mother, who lives in Boulder, Colo. When she awoke last week and went to find the bathroom at 4 a.m., she found herself wading through an ice-cold mountain stream. Unbeknownst to her and under cover of darkness, the stream decided to divert from its traditional course, which should have been dug out and deepened years earlier, and then it decided to wander through her bedroom. Thats when I realized we have to bomb Syria. Although the water was only a couple inches deep in her house, it proved a point: Water is not ambivalent, like the president is. It invades when it damn well pleases, especially if all of us in Colorado and Florida have underestimated or ignored it for years. As it turns out, my mother and my sister are not ambivalent, either. They attacked the problem with all the imaginative determination that the women in my family have exhibited forever (my brother-in-law had a lot to do with this, too). Before long, mini-dozers were dozing, mini-ditches were dug, and no less than 10 volunteers with shovels had helped her clean up and redirect the water so she could reclaim her sodden house. In effect, my mother and company had bombed the problem without hesitation. Of course, ignoring a problem can be a delicious experience, for a while, and it might have been for them if theyd just turned over and gone back to sleep. You buzz along like a guy on pain pills, feeling an optimistic glow that suggests energy, health and opportunity. You tell yourself that if you dont see it, it isnt real. The Syrian problem is like that, too their heinous cruelty (whoever they are), their willingness to murder innocents with gas, right here on our home planet. That kind of behavior is like bad water. It suggests that you should have been dealing with it a long time ago, and if you dont want to have to radically change how or even where you live, you better deal with it now, aggressively. So I was disappointed to hear many of my friends and neighbors, not to mention my readers, suggest otherwise. Syria and the Syrians are not our business, they argued. So we should ignore them. But I dont want ignorance, when the water starts rising. I dont want ambivalence, when the gas starts killing. I want action. I want eloquence and courage. I want reciprocity and ferocity now, not later. I want my president, my neighbors and my readers all to insist: We must not ignore them. Their business becomes our business. Their humanity is our humanity. They arent strangers; theyre brothers and sisters. This is true of the Syrian president and his regime, of the Russian premier and his history, of the Asians, the Africans or any other: If they threaten with a flood of savagery or even if they dont, we have to behave fiercely, unhesitatingly, as we would to defend any family. Thus, we should launch the might of a nation and a culture and a history! We should attack! Because those Syrians are also our parents and our children, also our poor misguided brothers and our sisters. They are also ourselves, not just some other. And we alone can defend them, the tyrants and murderers, the victims and innocents. We are their wards, their protectors. We alone can love them. Ignore them? We may as soon ignore our children, or ourselves. No, we must bomb them without ambivalence. Bomb them from the north to the south, bomb their joyless, barren hatreds, bomb their fears and complacencies, bomb the wisdom of their elders and their animosities, bomb their vain self-righteousness. Bomb them with cotton candy and Woody Guthrie, bomb them with soda pop and hot dogs and fried catfish and Taj Mahal, bomb them with late-night talk shows and bikinis and health food and the smiley face especially the smiley face, dropped by the millions from the bellies of B-1s and B-2s and ABCs and XYZs. Bomb them with Facebook chatter and locally brewed beer and cheese grits and biscuits with gravy. And the birds and the bees. Bomb them with Jerry Lee Lewis and George Gershwin and Elvis and Beethoven and Miles Davis and Muddy Waters and Bach and the Rolling Stones and Red Hot Chili Peppers and Joni Mitchell and Aaron Copeland and Sheryl Crow and Wynton Marsalis and Led Zeppelin and Modest Mouse and especially the Rev. Al Green and Aretha Franklin, singing R-ES-P-E-C-T. Bomb them with Jack Kerouac and Mark Twain and Seamus Heaney and Bruce Springsteen and Bono and the novels and plays of Robert Hilliard. Bomb them with Make-Nice and neon at night and homemade ice cream and, somehow, with the shivering, peaceinducing joy of l ove, all the time. And keep bombing them. And never stop bombing them. e t b i p



PAGE 4 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 OPINIONUnbelievably small and unpersuasive richLOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly amyGOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Now that John Kerry is the secretary of state, his gaffes can launch major diplomatic initiatives. A reporter in London asked what Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could do to avoid war. Kerry responded: He could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week turn it over, all of it without delay and allow the full and total accounting. But he isnt about to do it, and it cant be done. The State Department quickly noted that the secretary was merely making a rhetorical point. But the Russians immediately embraced the Kerry flourish as a serious proposal. It was welcomed by Damascus and spoken of warmly by the U.N. secretary-general and the British and French governments. Never mind that Kerry punctuated the launch of his unintended Syria peace plan with the words it cant be done. In a storm, any port will do, and during a catastrophic meltdown of an administrations case for war, so will any diplomatic fig leaf. Not all of Kerrys gaffes in London rose to the level of game-changing diplomacy. He said the strike on Syria would be unbelievably small. Surely, Kerry was making another one of his rhetorical points, that compared with, say, Dresden or Shock and Awe, the strike on Syria would be a much more circumscribed affair. But unbelievably small is not a rallying cry. An anonymous administration official resorted to an analogy to childrens cereal. As USA Today paraphrased his explanation: If Assad is eating Cheerios, were going to take away his spoon and give him a fork. Will that degrade his ability to eat Cheerios? Yes. Will it deter him? Maybe. But hell still be able to eat Cheerios. A military strike to change Assads options in breakfast flatware is even less stirring than Kerrys assurance of unbelievable smallness. At the beginning of what is supposed to be the administrations full-court press for a strike, it has done more to open itself to mockery than to persuade, more to set back its case than to advance it. Part of the problem, besides simple incompetence, is that the administration has dual, and conflicting, audiences. The presidents political base wants a strike to be as symbolic as possible, while the rapidly diminishing number of Republican supporters want it to be as robust as possible. Please one side and you alienate the other. The case for a strike comes down to a matter of national credibility that is more likely to move Henry Kissinger. Voters are not in the mood for any more Middle Eastern entanglements, so the administration is performing before a hostile crowd. Its always easier to look at the top of your game when you are not up against a howling head wind of public opposition. If hes not already, the president may soon wonder why, with the Syria vote, he built a pyre, threw his presidency on it and asked Congress to decide whether to light a match. Considering the gravity of the possible defeat before him, any escape hatch can look attractive, even one provided by his secretary of states careless words. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Kerry, Kissinger and the other Sept. 11As President Barack Obamas attack on Syria appears to have been delayed for the moment, it is remarkable that Secretary of State John Kerry was meeting, on Sept. 11, with one of his predecessors, Henry Kissinger, reportedly to discuss strategy on forthcoming negotiations on Syria with Russian officials. The Kerry-Kissinger meeting, and the public outcry against the proposed attack on Syria to which both men are publicly committed, should be viewed through the lens of another Sept. 11 ... 1973. On that day, 40 years ago, the democratically elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende, was violently overthrown in a U.S.-backed coup. Gen. Augusto Pinochet took control and began a 17-year dictatorial reign of terror, during which more than 3,000 Chileans were murdered and disappeared about the same number killed on that later, fateful 9/11, 2001. Allende, a socialist, was immensely popular with his people. But his policies were anathema to the elites of Chile and the U.S., so President Richard Nixon and his secretary of state and national-security adviser, Henry Kissinger, supported efforts to overthrow him. Kissingers role in plotting and supporting the 1973 coup in Chile becomes clearer as the years pass and the documents emerge, documents that Kissinger has personally fought hard to keep secret. Peter Kornbluh of the nonprofit National Security Archive has been uncovering the evidence for years, and has recently updated his book, The Pinochet File: A Declassified Dossier on Atrocity and Accountability. Kornbluh told me that Kissinger was the singular most important figure in engineering a policy to overthrow Allende and then, even more, to embrace Pinochet and the human-rights violations that followed. He said that Kissinger pushed Nixon forward to as aggressive but covert a policy as possible to make Allende fail, to destabilize Allendes ability to govern, to create what Kissinger called a coup climate. The Pinochet regime was violent, repressive and a close ally of the United States. Pinochet formed alliances with other military regimes in South America, and they created Operation Condor, a campaign of coordinated terror and assassinations throughout Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia and Brazil. Operation Condor even reached onto the streets of Washington, D.C., when, on Sep. 21, 1976, a former Chilean ambassador to the U.S. during the Allende government, Orlando Letelier, along with his assistant, a U.S. citizen named Ronni Moffitt, were killed by a car bomb planted by Pinochets secret police on Embassy Row, just blocks from the White House. Eventually, under increasing global condemnation and growing internal, nonviolent resistance, the Pinochet regime was forced to hold a plebiscite, a national vote, on whether Pinochet would continue as Chiles dictator. With a resounding No! the public rejected him, ushering in the modern, democratic era in Chile. At least two U.S. citizens were murdered during the 1973 coup. Charles Horman and Frank Teruggi were in Chile to observe the democratic experience there, working as writers and journalists. Their abduction and murder by Pinochets forces, with the likely collaboration by the U.S. government, is depicted movingly in the 1982 Oscarwinning film Missing, directed by Costa Gavras, starring Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek. On the week of the coups 40th anniversary, Charles Hormans widow, Joyce Horman, held a commemoration. The event, hosted in New York City by the Charles Horman Truth Foundation, attracted hundreds, many who were personally involved with the Allende government or who were forced into exile from Chile during those terrible years. Among those in attendance was Juan Garces, a Spanish citizen who was President Allendes closest adviser. Garces was with Allende in the presidential palace on Sept. 11, 1973. Just before the palace was bombed by the air force, Allende led Garces to the door of the palace and told him to go out and tell the world what had happened that day. Allende died during the coup. Garces narr owly escaped Chile with his life. He led the global legal pursuit of Pinochet, finally securing his arrest in Britain in 1998, where Pinochet was held for 504 days. While Pinochet was eventually allowed to return to Chile, he was later indicted there and, facing trial and prison, died under house arrest in 2006, at the age of 91. Today, Garces sees alarming similarities between the repression in Chile and U.S. policies today: You have extraordinary renditions. You have extrajudicial killings. You have secret centers of detentions. I am very concerned that those methods ... were applied in Chile with the knowledge and the backing of the Nixon-Kissinger administration in this period. The same methods are being applied now in many countries with the backing of the United States. That is very dangerous for everyone. Rather than meeting with Kissinger for advice, John Kerry would better serve the cause of peace by consulting with those like Garces who have spent their lives pursuing peace. The only reason Henry Kissinger should be pursued is to be held accountable, like Pinochet, in a court of law. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Fun Time Early Childhood Academy was established in Naples more than 50 years ago by a determined group of parents and educators to do just that. For years, Fun Time functioned in a dilapidated double-wide trailer. In October 2005, however, Hurricane Wilma blew through Naples and left the alreadyshabby trailer without a roof and completely flooded. Blue tarpaulins were secured and a new roof eventually followed, but the trailers days were limited. Franny Kain was hired as executive director a year later, as bankruptcy threatened the beloved preschool. The Community Foundation and United Way of Collier County came through with emergency funding to pay immediate bills; patching and repairing became daily necessities as Franny and the board of directors searched in every direction for additional financial assistance. The Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, believed in the cause and awarded Fun Time a significant matching grant to initiate the campaign for a new building. Others in the community responded generously, and the new school on 12th Street North opened in January 2009.Now nationally accredited and Florida Gold Seal certified, the preschool has a contract with Collier County Public Schools as a Head Start provider and is an approved Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten provider. Teachers with early childhood degrees and credentials educate 84 children yearround, full-time, Monday through Friday. Families pay based on their ability.A passionate advocate and leader, Franny grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, with her parents, two sisters and extended family nearby. Her favorite memories of childhood involve family gatherings, always with lots of children around, she says.As a teenager, she enjoyed volunteering at United Cerebral Palsy with her mother. Her favorite activity there was reading to the little children. She left the Midwest for college, earning a bachelors degree in elementary education/special education from Syracuse University and a masters in family counseling from Framingham State University. After college, she settled in New England to start a family of her own. Today, she has two grown sons, two daughters-in-law, three granddaughters and one grandson, all back in New England.Dogs have always been an important part of Frannys life. Every dog Ive had has taught me important life lessons about loyalty, love, forgiveness, patience, bravery and tenacity. Also about living life in the moment as young children do, she says. m n i G t a bobHARDEN e-mail: PROFILES IN PARADISEIts always a fun time when young children are around Talking points with Franny KainMentor(s): My parents, teachers, grandparents, partners, friends and my children have all contributed to my growth. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Even as a young girl, I would gather up little children and be the teacher. First job: Right out of college I took a job in Boston as a special education teacher of 15 children, ages 5-16 years old, all in one classroom with varying degrees of cognitive, emotional and physical challenges Good thing I was only 21 years old and believed I could do anything! Favorite vacation destination: Any place where nature is in charge and Im not! One thing on your bucket list: Visiting the national parks and taking a grandchild along with me for the memories and so he/she will take the photos. Skill or talent you wish you had: Id like to speak another language so well that I would dream in it. Advice for your kids or grandkids: Do random acts of kindness regularly and do them anonymously. Also, use all the colors in the Crayola box of life! What makes you laugh: Little children and dogs especially when theyre together! Something youll never understand: If we can agree that the future is in the hands of the children, why do we not consistently make their future our present and biggest priority? Something people might be surprised to nd out about you: I wanted so much to y that I took hang-gliding lessons. The classroom lessons were ne and then we went to the mountain. After three false starts I nally leapt off the edge I broke my ankle, my leg and my nose. Now I only y in my dreams! What the Paradise Coast really needs: Slow-moving cars to please move over from the left lane for passing vehicles. Favorite thing about the Paradise Coast: The spirit of generosity in and the desire to help others who are less fortunate are extraordinary in Naples. What I miss about the Paradise Coast when Im away: The children at Fun Time. Even when I was young, I felt childhood was very special and that children would shape our world, she adds. Fun Time is a tribute to what our community has accomplished for the good of others, the youngest and most vulnerable among us.Thank you, Naples, for showing you care deeply about the children.

PAGE 8 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 Humane Society introduced herself to the board. The commissioners and Lee County Manager Roger Desjarlais delighted at the sight of Cleo who was brought by to provide the decisionmakers a living example of the homeless pet population. County leaders are considering an ordinance that would require most pet owners to spay or neuter their animals. The Lee County leaders bent down in their suits to pet and chat with the dog adorned with a tie-dyed bandana. The cool marble floors and kind voices were a significant change from her recent surroundings. It was just a month ago when the 1-year-old dog was found at a Fort Myers residence tethered outside, laying in long grass without cover, food or water. According to neighbors, her cries sounded like a human as she suffered in the yard, said Jennifer Galloway, executive director of the Gulf Coast Humane Society. Lee County Domestic Animal Services rescued Cleo after being contacted by a concerned neighbor. GCHS, which partners with Lee County Animal Services, took Cleo and the staff there is getting her medical attention for a spinal injury that leaves her back legs weak.Pets by numbersCleo is just one of many cases of neglected, abused or simply unwanted pets that are homeless in Southwest Florida. Pet homelessness is a problem that continues to exist and persist in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties. County officials, nonprofit humane shelter staff and rescues scramble to find space for dogs and cats that no one wants. And the job is daunting and often heartbreaking. At Lee County Domestic Animal Services, taxpayers spend around $2.5 million a year to house and care for homeless pets, said Ria Brown, the public information officer for LCDAS. The county shelter takes in about 10,000 animals a year. Many come to the shelter very sick or aggressive and must be euthanized. In 2012, about 60 percent of the cats that came through LCDASs doors were sick, feral or aggressive and unadoptable and had to be euthanized. During that same year, about 37 percent of the dogs were euthanized for being too sick to recover or too aggressive to go back into the community. In Collier County, 6,109 animals were taken into Collier County Domestic Animal Services in 2012. More than half of the animals taken in, 3,116 dogs and cats, were put to sleep. The statistics are actually an improvement, reflecting a downtrend compared to previous years, said Amanda Townsend, the executive director of CDAS. Taxpayers paid slightly more than $2 million for the expense of housing and caring for homeless pets in Collier County this past year. The Charlotte County the Animal Welfare League took in 4,616 pets in 2012. Between 65 to 70 percent of its pet population gets adopted to the community or goes to rescues. The nonprofit humane society euthanizes sick or aggressive pets; animals are not subject to euthanasia due to space issues, said Sharon Thomas, the executive director. Up the road in Englewood, the Suncoast Humane Society takes in about 3,000 animals a year. Out of these, around 1,400 are sick, injured or have aggressive dispositions, making them unadoptable. Why so many?There are nearly 25,000 animals taken in or brought to shelters in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties annually. These are homeless pets. Out of these, a fair share are euthanized because they are too sick or too aggressive to find a new home. But what about all of the healthy, happy pets that find themselves with no place to go? We only have so many people available to give homes, said Phil Snyder, the executive director of Suncoast Humane Society in Englewood. Numbers are more than numbers to the directors and staff of Southwest Florida shelters tasked with finding homes for a seemingly revolving door of pets as well as the grim job of putting down the sick and dangerous ones. Former game show host Bob Barkers plea at the end of each program: Dont forget to spay and neuter your pets, is at the heart of the issue. Collier and Charlotte shelter staff concede that all their good intentions and pet-saving programs will never be enough to keep pets from being homeless as long as people pet owners dont have their pets sterilized. As long as you are euthanizing one animal, thats a pet overpopulation problem, Mr. Snyder of the Suncoast Humane Society said. Michael Simonik, executive director of the Humane Society of Naples, said they have adopted out 3,000 pets this year. People are still adopting at a good rate, he said. But still not enough. Theres always way too many, he said. We still have a long list of adult cats trying to get in. Though county facilities such as LCDAS and CDAS must accept all strays and homeless pets, private nonprofit humane societies can accept pets that are adoptable only. This means shelters like Gulf Coast Humane Society in Fort Myers and Humane Society of Naples often have long lists of people waiting to surrender their pets. At GCHS, adoption numbers are up, but theres a long list of people waiting to bring their pets in. The pets on the waiting lists are often found dumped or abandoned. Every day an animal is dumped here, said Ms. Galloway at GCHS. A youth recently left a pet on the shelter grounds along with his book bag, Ms. Galloway said, shaking her head.Faces behind the numbersEach animal has its own story of how it arrived at the shelter. Allergies, dissolved relationships, moving, loss of home and/or job, death of an owner who did not have a care plan in place, and the list continues. In some cases, neglect and abuse forced authorities to rescue and remove pets for their own safety and protection. Aside from Cleo, Ms. Brown said animal control officers rescued a sweet-tempered dog named Rue who was found with third-degree burns all over his body. The 2-year-old Catahoula is being fostered and available for adoption, Ms. Brown said. And Suncoast Humane Society longtime resident Rose is still waiting on a family to take her home. The sweet and friendly American bulldog is full of energy, a people-lover who graduated from a six-week obedience program at the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. Its hard not to notice Emma, at Suncoast Humane Society. Shes a black and white domestic shorthair mix with a funny little nose. She and her best friend Cookie lost their home where they had children to play with. Cookie has since been adopted, leaving Emma alone. Ms. Galloway sighs as she walks down the corridor near the dog enclosures at Gulf Coast Humane Society. At each turn, a paw flops out between the bars in a sign of greeting. The perky and petite shelter director flashes a big grin and reaches her hand over to pet and comfort each dog especially the scared and sad ones. Bryce lays curled up waiting for someone to give him a corner of the couch again. Theres C-MO, who never has had the chance to even have a meetand-greet with a potential adopter hes out of luck because hes a simple plain, brown dog. They look past, she said. Then of course theres Mara, a life of the party free spirit who has never known life outside of the Gulf Coast Humane Society. The 4-year-old pit bull terrier awaits someone to give her a chance to love them.Whats being done?Tales after tale, the stories are similar pets with no home and in many cases, little hope for one. Most Southwest Florida shelters have programs in place to help give pets the chance to get a home and stay there. At LCDAS, there is a food pantry and reduced-price clinic for needy pet owners. Theres also free spaying and neutering for all pit bull terriers and mixes. Trap, neuter and release programs are in place to help with feral cat colonies. Collier County Domestic Animal Services also has programs in place to curb the amount of homeless pets on the streets and in the shelters. The Board of Collier County Commissioners passed an ordinance that makes it against the law to tether an animal outside without food, shelter and provisions. LCDAS is waiting for its proposed ordinance to be looked at by county officials and and passed by the Lee County Board of Commissioners. The ordinance would make it against the law to tether an animal outside without food, shelter or supervision. The ordinance would also make it mandatory to spay and neuter all pets except for AKC registered breeders and exemptions for dog breeds that do not contribute to pet overpopulation in Lee County. If the ordinance is passed, LCDAS officials expect over time to see a substantial drop in homeless pet numbers, euthanasia and tax dollars being used to house and care for pets, Ms. Brown said. A sizable drop could be seen within two to four years, with as much as a two-thirds reduction in the homeless pet population. LCDAS officials say that a 50 percent reduction would mean 5,000 fewer animals to care for and a savings of more than $1.2 million to taxpayers.

BABY RON SUNNY SUZY Its really important that we get it brought forth and approved, said Commissioner Cecil Pendergrass, who supports the measure. We need to reduce our homeless population. The ordinance could be brought to the board within 60 days after county staff reviews it. Other Southwest Florida shelters are working every way they can to help the homeless pets. The Animal Welfare League partners with Community Cats, a rescue that takes feral cats as well as creating education programs for the schools. Ms. Thomas, who recently struggled with a yearlong $100,000 shortfall after the Charlotte County Animal Control stopped picking up stray cats, is hoping to work with the county on devising a sterilization plan in the future. In Collier County, CDAS depends on the help of the TNR Naples Cat Alliance (TNR stands for trap, neauter, release) to help them keep down stray and feral cat numbers. We couldnt do without our partners, Ms. Townsend said. The three Southwest Florida counties also employ the use of enrichment training programs to help dogs maintain good canine manners and not become homeless. The Humane Society of Naples uses an RV-style bus to take adoptable pets to remote sites and is working on using wireless laptops to further promote off-site adoptions. The agency recently received a million-dollar donation to help with its operations and service. Mr. Simonik of the Humane Society of Naples said a sort of adoption peer pressure going on in the community encourages him. He noticed that people are giving their friends a hard time if they buy at a pet store rather than adopting. Still, a solution to the problem remains elusive. You cannot adopt your way out of euthanasia, Mr. Snyder said. Spay, neuter, good legislation and education. That is the combination to producing fewer animals and less statistics. Accountability and responsibility remain key for keeping down homeless pet numbers. Shelter administrators said pets need to be figured into a pet owners life on a permanent basis regardless of any life changes such as divorce, moving or children might bring. I wish people would try a little harder, Mr. Simonik said. HUMANE SOCIETY NAPLES / RATTIGAN PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP AND KIMBERLY JOY PHOTOGRAPHY DAS PHOTOS / SARA TIMMONS AND ROBERT MACKENZIE

However, in Seattle, as the Post-Intelligencer reported in September, librarians do permit patrons to watch hard-core pornography on public computers, without apparent restriction, no matter who (adult or child) is walking by or sitting inches away at the next screen (although librarians politely ask porn-watchers to consider their neighbors). Said a library spokesperson: (P)atrons have a right to view constitutionally protected material no matter where they are in the building, and the library does not censor. Cultural diversity Japan and Korea seem to be the birthplaces in the quest for youthful and beautiful skin, with the latest elixir (as usual, based on traditional, centuries-old beliefs) being snail mucus applied by specially bred live snails that slither across customers faces. The Clinical Salon in central Tokyo sells the 60-minute Celebrity Escargot Course session for the equivalent of about $250 and even convinced a London Daily Telegraph reporter to try one in July. (Previously, News of the Weird has informed readers of Asian nightingalefeces facials and live-fish pedicures.) Among people earnestly devoted to palmistry (the foretelling of the future by expert examination of the inner surface of the hand), a few in Japan have resorted to what seems like cheating: altering their palm lines with cosmetic surgery. According to a July Daily Beast dispatch from Tokyo, Dr. Takaaki Matsuoka is a leading practitioner, preferring an electric scalpel over laser surgery in that the latter more often eventually heals over, obviously defeating the purpose. He must be careful to add or move only the lines requested by the patient (e.g., marriage line, romance line, money-luck line, financial success line). Latest religious messages Irans INSA news service reported in January that officials in Shiraz had acquired a finger-amputation machine to perhaps streamline the gruesome punishment often meted out to convicted thieves. (A masked enforcer turns a guillotine-like wheel to slice off the finger in the manner of a rotary saw.) Iran is already known for its reliance on extreme Islamic Sharia, which prescribes amputations, public lashings and death by stoning, and Middle East commentators believe the government will now step up its amputating of fingers, even for the crime of adultery. Measles, despite being highly contagious, was virtually eradicated in America until a small number of skeptics, using now-discredited research, tied childhood vaccinations with the rise of autism, and now the disease is returning. About half the members of the Eagle Mountain International Church near Dallas have declined to vaccinate their children, and as of late August, at least 20 church members have experienced the disease. The head pastor denied that he preaches against the immunizations (although he did tell NPR, cryptically, (T)he (medical) facts are facts, but then we know the truth. That always overcomes facts.) Outraged Jewish leaders complain periodically about Mormons who, in the name of their church, posthumously baptize deceased Jews (even Holocaust victims) beneficently, of course, to help them qualify for heaven. Church officials promised to stop, but in 2012 reports still surfaced that not all Mormons got the memo. Thus inspired, a religious order called the Satanic Temple conducted a July pink mass over the Meridian, Miss., grave of the mother of the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, Rev. Fred Phelps Jr. posthumously turning her gay. (Westboro infamously stages small, hate-saturated demonstrations denouncing homosexuals and American tolerance.) Ten days later, Meridian prosecutors charged a Satanic Temple official with misdemeanor desecration of a grave. Questionable judgments Australias chief diplomat in Taipei, Taiwan, said in August that he was suing local veterinarian Yang Dong-sheng for fraud because Dr. Yang backed out of euthanizing the diplomat Kevin Magees sick, 10-year-old dog. Instead, Dr. Yang rescued the dog, who is now thriving after he patiently treated her. Magees lawsuit claims, in essence, that his family vet recommended euthanization, that he had paid for euthanization, and that Benji should have been put down. Dr. Yang said the fee Magee paid was for medical care and not necessarily euthanization. (Benji, frolicking outside when a reporter visited, was not available for comment.) In August, a prosecutor in Houston filed aggravated rape charges against a 10-year-old girl (Ashley) who had been arrested in June and held for four days in a juvenile detention center. A neighbor had seen Ashley touching a 4-year-old boy in his private area, according to a KRIVTV report in other words, apparently playing the time-honored, rite-of-passage game of doctor. Squirrels gone wildSmithsonian magazine detailed in August the exhaustive measures that military officials have taken to finally block relentless Richardsons ground squirrels from tunneling underneath Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana and interfering with the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles on 24/7 standby. For example, officials had to use trialand-error to plant underground screens deeper into the ground than the squirrels cared to dig. A day after that report was published, a bus driver in Gothenburg, Sweden, crashed into a tree (with six passengers requiring hospital treatment) after swerving to avoid a squirrel in the road. On the same day, a New York Times reporter disclosed that his own news monitoring for 2013 revealed that squirrels have caused 50 power outages in 24 states in the U.S. since Memorial Day after invading electric company substations.

On the west side of the lake, in Lee County, Commissioner Frank Mann says new maps may help better define areas at risk to floods, but they can create some terrible legal payback from property owners dissatisfied with the FEMA analysis. His experience might serve as a caveat for those in other counties. Almost three years ago, we adopted the latest FEMA maps, with flood zones for Lee County. When we did that, it affected our comprehensive plan, and made some areas undevelopable. Those landowners sued us for millions of dollars and won, as if we had stolen their properties. Now were appealing it. But if we lose Both Commissioner Heard on the east and Commissioner Mann on the west agree that the fixes to Floridas water system remain years decades or a century, they say in the future. Which echoes the judgment of Clewiston Mayor Phillip Roland, who has spent almost 40 years in public service in the middle of the state and at the base of Lake Okeechobee, watching his lake and his town become increasingly inundated by troubled waters. As for the insurance issue, he says, the new flood maps may be needed because the Corps of Engineers wont certify the dike so yes, property owners are going to have to pay more money. If the Corps keeps the level of the lake at the level that they set (no higher than 15.5 feet, a level exceeded by almost a foot this summer), then they should be able to certify the dike. The problem, in his eyes, is the Kissimmee River basin to the north, where water that once took five or six months to reach the lake now takes two days. The water from there also comes in much greater volume, filling the lake much faster than engineers can release water east and west. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out when the Kissimmee is going to start to flow, says Mayor Roland. If they start releasing in front of that flow, they wouldnt have to blow these estuaries like they do. And, he concludes, it would help if the cow country to the north of the lake was used to hold water, instead of feeding more than half-a-million cows. For Commissioner Heard, Commissioner Mann and many others like them, only two things are required for a big fix: time and money. In Martin County we are on the brink of collapse, explains Commissioner Heard. We first passed a resolution here telling the then-regulators stop these discharges they were killing our economy, our shrimp, our oysters, our fish in 1930. There are comprehensive solutions and they will take many years and billions of dollars to restore the eco-system.It started, says Commissioner Mann, a century ago. It took us 100 years for the federal and state police to severely damage the waters natural systems, he notes. And its going to take us most of the next hundred years to restore it and it will never be restored completely. Having played this game since 1974 (when Commissioner Mann became a state legislator), Ive heard all the quick solutions, and Ive heard them all restated in the last two months. It all gets down to money. LAKE OFrom page 1

Donors are urged to take the time to donate at the Community Donna Daisy SEE BLOOD, A19 American Cancer Society seeks volunteers for 20-year study BY LISA HONIGSpecial to Florida WeeklyAs the American Cancer Society marks its 100th birthday this year, we are asking Southwest Florida residents to celebrate with us and help finish the fight against cancer by participating in a historic cancer research study. Cancer Prevention Study-3 will give scientists a better understanding of cancer causes and prevention. Anyone who joins this study will help save lives and give future generations more time with family and friends, more memories, more celebrations and more birthdays. If youre between the ages of 30 and 65 with no personal history of cancer, you can enroll in the study. All you have to do is sign a consent form, complete a brief survey, have your waist measured and give a small blood sample. Then youll be sent follow-up surveys from time to time throughout the next 20 years so researchers can learn more about your lifestyle and look for clues about what causes cancer. The question is not Why am I participating? The question is How could I not? says CPS-3 participant Albert Arguelles. Cancer affects so many lives, and this is my chance to be part of the study that finds a cure. The ACSs goal is to enroll 300,000 participants across the country. There are two enrollment events coming up in the Naples area: Wednesday, Oct. 2: 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at NCH in downtown Naples, 350 Seventh St. N. Thursday, Oct. 3: 4-7:30 p.m. at NCH in North Naples, 11190 Healthpark Blvd. Appointments are required and can be made by calling the American Cancer Society at 642-8800 or by going to (click on the South Florida locations tab). Many individuals diagnosed with cancer struggle to answer the question, What caused my cancer? In many cases, we dont know the answer, says Alpa Patel, Ph.D., principal investigator of CPS-3. This study will help us better understand what factors cause cancer, and once we know that, we can be better equipped to prevent cancer. Researchers say CPS-3 holds the best hope of identifying new and emerging cancer risks. But it can only be successful if members of the Southwest Florida community get involved. Of all the worlds enemies, few compare to cancer. No natural disaster, common trauma, crime or war claims anywhere near the number of lives that cancer does every year, says Dr. Ryan Warhurst of Trinity Chiropractic in Naples. Our c ountry spends billions of dollars on cancer but rarely looks at the cause of the disease. Finding the cause would enable us to prevent it, because the cause is the cure.

Chief Nursing Officer Michele Thoman describes NCH nurses by quoting St. Francis of Assisi: Start by doing whats necessary, then do whats possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. I think that pretty well says it all. Nursing at NCH has undergone a transformation over the past four years as we have embraced a shared governance approach that empowers the front-line nurse. Historically, the medical field has been a top-down, militarystyle organization with command-andcontrol leadership. Now, however, as a matrix organization we are able to take everyones ideas of how best to care for patients and share these good thoughts across our system. In todays challenging health-care environment, we really cannot afford the good old days, where we spent twice as much per person on health care as other developed nations but have similar outcomes. The old attitude of entitlement and self-centeredness has no place at NCH or at any hospital that plans to survive, much less thrive. Inclusiveness must be our watchword. Ms. Thoman reminds us that when she became our CNO in January 2010, she first conducted a listening campaign to find out what was necessary. She asked four key questions of her colleagues: Who are we as nurses? What are we most proud of and dont want to change? What do we see as our biggest opportunity for change? What do we want for nursing in the future? Part of the answer was summarized in strategies to give front-line nurses a louder voice, among them empowerment, creating opportunities for professional development, recognizing successes, investing in nurse leaders and developing the structure that allows nursing to be fiscally responsible while meeting the demands of patient care. Just as St. Francis of Assisi foresaw, after determining necessity and declaring possibilities, we have achieved the impossible. NCHs shared governance best practice is being presented at national and international meetings; we have dev eloped quality outcomes better than some of the best academic institutions; we have eliminated our use of traveling agency nurses (first-time ever without nurses who would work only during peak months); we have increased specialty-trained nurses from 10 percent to 40 percent and bachelordegreed nurses from 19 percent to 30 percent; and we have established a vibrant Aspire program for continuing education. All this has been achieved in a culture where we have had the lowest turnover and vacancy rate ever in nursing. In fact, we have a waiting list of nurses desiring to be employed. There is no question now but that NCH truly means Nurses Care Here. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. Blood Center or its bloodmobile.

PATTI KHULYUniversal UclickIm not sure exactly how it happens, but veterinarians tend to take on special needs pets. Of course, Im no exception. My French bulldogs chronic spinal problems and ensuing disability make him a perfect poster child for veterinarian-owned pets everywhere. It also makes him the ideal subject of a discussion on intervertebral disk disease, arguably the most common spinal malady among dogs. Intervertebral disk disease, like my dog Vincents, is referred to as IVDD by veterinarians, but is better known to the general public as slipped disk. Its a condition caused by the untimely degeneration of one or more of the diskshaped structures that serve as cushions between the bony vertebrae of the spine. When these disks go bad, the material contained within them is extruded, thereby compressing the most sensitive nearby structure: the spinal cord.Like my temperamental Vincent (his spine isnt the only source of his specialness), the spinal cord doesnt take insults lying down. It lets everyone know when its unhappy. In most cases, pain is the bodys most obvious response to an affronted spinal cord. Afflicted dogs may stand in a hunched position, cry out when picked up, refuse to jump or decline to eat, among other possible symptoms.But some dogs arent especially demonstrative when it comes to letting you know theyre hurting. In fact, plenty will never whine, cry or otherwise display their discomfort ever. For some, thats because their disease is mild. For others, its because its simply their nature to conceal any pain. In more advanced cases, however, the evidence of IVDD may ultimately appear in how they move. An odd hitch in her stride, a peculiar dragging of a hind foot, a funny crossing-over of his hind limbs theyre all possibilities. In these patients, what youre observing is the end result of a serious spinal offense: evidence of nerve damage. When the spinal cord is damaged whether permanently or temporarily the communication between the brain and the body is disrupted. And for most IVDD patients, the hind limbs are the first to go. Thats why the unluckiest patients will forever walk oddly, if they walk at all. In Vincents case, it has taken three surgeries to get him back on all four paws. Nonetheless, these separate IVDD events have claimed most of his hind limb function. The next time, his neurosurgeons tell me, he wont be so lucky. Which is why hes already being trained to use his K-9 cart, aka a doggie wheelchair. To be sure, its a depressing disease. More so for dogs who dont have the luxury of a veterinarian owner and a bunch of board-certified neurosurgeons to lavish them with their professional services. But fortunately, few dogs are as seriously diseased as Vincent. Trouble is, for every wheelchair-bound patient, hundreds more suffer painful IVDD symptoms that arent detected or treated. It makes sense, then, that research dollars might be dedicated to exploring the basis for this disease. Because its especially common in dachshunds, among other short-legged long-backed breeds (bassets, shih tzus, Welsh corgis, etc.), a recent veterinary study at The Royal Veterinary College in the United Kingdom undertook to understand this connection, ultimately establishing a relationship between long backs, short legs and IVDD. Although all dog owners should be on the lookout for pain and dysfunction, those who count stubby-legged, long-backed dogs among their family are effectively put on notice: Spinal troubles may be headed your way. So at your next veterinary visit, why not ask your pets doctor to check for telltale signs you might be missing? The earlier the diagnosis, the more treatment options there are, and the better chance your dog has of living without the chronic pain IVDD can cause.

THE DIVA DIARIESCaptiva triathlon is a must-do for this faithful spectatorYour diva was thrilled this past weekend to have gotten a reprieve from keeping up with my husband (and several hundred other athletic people) when it comes to the third annual Galloway Triathlon at South Seas Resort on Captiva Island. Loyal readers may or may not remember that a few weeks ago, I wrote about how my dear Todd was training up a storm for the event waking up before dawn and doing push-ups and bicycling and swimming and running and inadvertently making me feel like the laziest woman on the planet. Him gasping for breath while doing crunches on the bedroom floor in the mornings was quite loud and interrupted my beauty sleep on a number of occasions. So, I finally went with the old adage, If you cant beat em, join em and started working on my fitness as well because the wife of a triathlete should, at the very least, own a pair of sneakers. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when Todd was diagnosed with a torn shoulder muscle that would require surgery and suddenly the workouts and the triathlon were put on the back burner. As sad as I was for Todd, I really needed the rest from all that exercise of his. Still, we had booked a room out on Captiva for the triathlon and decided to go and treat the weekend as a minivacation, since the triathlon was officially off the table. We had a delightful and relaxing time eating, drinking, sleeping in, sunning by the pool, walking the beach until it was registration time for the triathlon and Todd decided that he at least wanted the T-shirt that came with his registration fee. Standing in line at South Seas with all the other racers, he became heady with triathlon fever. It didnt help that so many of the other men there encouraged him, Dude, you can swim with one arm. Youll be FINE. My weekend of margaritas and laying by the pool reading People magazine suddenly came to an end as my husbands testosterone kicked in to high gear and he hopped in the car and drove all the way home for his bike, goggles and running shoes. We switched from tequila to ice water and set the alarm for 5 a.m. Sunday. I know Im kvetching, but the truth is, even though Ive never competed, I wouldnt miss the morning of the tri for anything. I love running into so many friends that I normally see sparkling in eveningwear at fancy events out there at the crack of dawn sweating, smiling and cheering each other on. Lots of funds were raised for the CCMI Soup Kitchen as about 700 people of all shapes, sizes, skill sets and ages participated including one fellow with a bum shoulder whose sleepy but proud wife stood at the finish line happily snapping photos as he crossed.Movin on MarcoOne of the most fabulous things about Southwest Florida is that if you miss a triathlon on one beautiful tropical island, theres sure to be yet another triathlon on another beautiful island just around the corner. If you missed out on the Captiva fitness festivities, fret not. The Fitness Challenge Triathlon at the Marriott Marco Island Resort & Golf Club is happening Sunday morning, Sept. 28. There will be a quarter-mile swim in the gulf, a 15-mile bike ride and a 3.1 mile run (the mere effort of typing that made me crave a Gatorade and a nice, long nap). Event organizers are asking that participants and spectators bring canned goods to help Grace Place for Children & Families. To sign up, go to Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B7-8 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE LOCAL BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES BSECTIONWEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 Power fishingSTATE OFFICIALS THIS MONTH APPROVED A measure aimed at maintaining the population of tarpon, an inedible sportfish prized in part for the business and fame it has brought the region. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission effectively banned any fishing methods used just to snag the acrobatic silver king on a hook, instead of enticing the fish to strike with bait or lures. The rule goes into effect Nov. 1. The measure is a small part of a larger trend toward maintaining all types of Florida gamefish, the backbone of the states claim to Fishing Capital of the World, an economic engine generating tourism, retail sales, tax revenue and jobs. Floridas recreational saltwater and freshwater fishing industry is a roughly $5 billion per year enterprise, twice that of the states orange, grapefruit, tomato and sugar cane crops combined. Florida is the top fishing state in the country. Annual recreational fishingrelated expenditures in the state also make up more than 10 percent of the nations total, $47.7 billion, according to a 2013 report by the American Sportfishing Association. The report, based on 2011 data, showed Florida had 3.1 million anglers, (New York was a distant second with 1.8 million). They helped generate 80,211 jobs here.

The different twists to the Syrian crisis are widely known throughout Europe, thanks to the newspaper reporting of Great Britains The Mail and Globe and The Telegraph. It is similarly reported by Al Jazeera. It is not headlined in major U.S. newspapers. Such side stepping has been the case over several decades when there has been U.S. military involvement in the Middle East. Not that our past involvement was unjustified, its just that the underlying reasons offered for our involvement most probably related to oil/energy issues and not exclusively humanitarian issues. The Syrian crisis, the Syrian use of chemical weapons against its own people, the senseless death of thousands, Russias aggressive, center stage role and Russias dictation of foreign policy to the U.S. might well relate to an ongoing oil/energy dispute that involves many Middle Eastern countries and whose o utcome will greatly impact the economies of Russia and Europe. As reported outside the U.S., there is a colossal abundance of Middle Eastern natural gas looking for new markets and needing a pipeline to be built for transporting the gas from the Persian Gulf into Europe. The proposed alternative pipeline routes would make some countries winners and others losers. The ancillary problem is that, in the Middle East, losers do not fade gracefully and Syria plays a pivotal role, as all of the pipelines would pass through Syria and require Syrian approval. The gargantuan natural gas reserves in Persian waters are to be found offshore of two Middle Eastern countries, Qatar and Iran. These two physically close Muslim countries have very different agendas. What is in common is that both countries are each vying for Syrias favor as each pipeline blueprint requires pipeline transit through Syria before reaching Europe. This natural gas pipeline debate is not a new discussion; certainly there were pipeline proposals made to Syria as early as 2009. Mainland Europe is highly interested in getting an alternative to GAZPROMs natural gas (the Russian national operating company) as GAZPROM delivers one third of Europes natural gas and virtually all of its pipeline gas. (Other gas comes to Europe by LNG tanker and requires the re-gasification of the liquid form of natural gas that was transported across oceans.) Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, etc. would all love to have another natural gas pipeline source. Russia has been highly interested that a competing pipeline NOT be built. Russias close relationship to Syria no doubt reflects Russias desire that Syria walk from any pipeline deal or that Syria be too internally and politically confused such that the pipeline gets further delayed. Russia will have a keen interest in supporting Syria until it can definitively cut a much better energy deal for itself. Qatar, which is adjacent to Saudi Arabia, is very interested in reaching new markets for its superior gas finds in the North Field of the Persian Gulf. Qatar has proposed many pipeline routes but all go through Syria and most plans go from Qatar to neighboring Saudi Arabia then into Syria (Saudi Arabias neighbor) and then to Turkey (Syrias neighbor). Clearly Turkey is highly interested in the pipeline being built on its soil. Iran holds territorial rights to the Persian Gulfs South Pars Field, which is adjacent to Qatars coastal reserves. Iran is highly interested in economic betterment and thwarting the effect of economic sanctions (plans effected internationally but at the initiatives of the U.S. and Israel, as Iran has been determined to develop a nuclear arsenal largely directed toward the latter.) Obviously, any economic benefit accruing to Iran is not good for the U.S., Israel and the other countries that have supported economic sanctions. The Iran pipeline would travel through Iraq and Syria and would obviate Turkey. Saudi Arabia has lobbied for the Qatars proposed pipeline, as it would cross its country. It has also been suggested that the Saudi rulers want an unstable Bashar al-Assad out of power and a Saudi-installed puppet regime in Syria. Iraq would want the Iran proposed pipeline. As Syria is at the geographic crossroads for any and all proposed pipelines, Syria has been courted by all interested parties. Most recently, Syria decided against the Qatar pipeline and for the Iranian route. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey did not like that decision. There is suggestion that some of the interested countries have offered sweetheart deals to powerful Russia to use its close connection with Syria to reverse such a pipeline course. There is suggestion that the several billions in rebel arms was financed by Qatar after Syria elected for a joint venture with Iran. So what does that mean to the U.S.? To our citizenry, it might mean that once again our agenda in the Middle East has been disguised as humanitarian and once again we are playing international foreign policy poker with an unruly group of players with a winner take all, win at any cost, and take no hostages mentality. With so many dogs in this fight, it might be unrealistic to think that the U.S. can play peacekeeper and that our humanitarian goals can be achieved.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Stocks Are for KidsWhat better gift can you give your children than a nudge toward financial independence? Its rarely too early to introduce them to investing. With decades ahead of them, they can reap great benefits from the magic of compounded growth. Here are some ideas to help you play and learn together: (1) Build a mock portfolio. Have your kids list companies that interest them. If they look around their home, classrooms, the mall and on TV, theyll see firms such as Nike, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Apple, WalMart, McDonalds, Disney, American Eagle Outfitters, PepsiCo, Boeing and Johnson & Johnson. (The Motley Fool owns shares of some of these, and its newsletters have recommended most, too.) Have them list a dozen companies, with ticker symbols, current stock prices and todays date. Every day or week, have them record the latest prices. Calculate the gains or losses regularly. Such short-term stock price movements arent terribly meaningful, but they can help a child understand how the market works. (If you help them open an online portfolio at or elsewhere, tracking their holdings will be easy.) (2) Follow the companies together, watching them expand internationally, add stores, announce new products or services, and report quarterly sales and earnings. Youll find news reports at,, caps. and elsewhere. Read through the companies websites and annual reports. Watch how news affects stock prices. (3) Eventually, help your child actually invest. You can open a custodial brokerage account, or you might informally sell some of your own shares to your child. Once your child turns 18, she can open her own brokerage account. Help your kids get started. Your teens (and clever preteens) can learn more at,, and in our book, The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens: 8 Steps to Having More Money Than Your Parents Ever Dreamed Of, by David and Tom Gardner with Selena Maranjian (Touchstone, $16). Peter Lynchs Learn to Earn (Simon & Schuster, $15) is also good. Check out the Secret Millionaires Club, too, at It offers videos and features Warren Buffett. Swung to a LossI tried my best at swing trading. At the very best, I could stay even, but at times it was terrible. I eventually put my funds into corporate bonds and have recovered. S.H., onlineThe Fool responds: Swing trading is generally defined as investing in something (such as a stock) for a few days, hoping to profit from a change, or swing, in the price. Its not as extreme as daytrading, where stocks are often held for just minutes or hours, but its not a much more sound approach, either. Like many day traders and others, swing traders tend to employ technical analysis of securities. Thus, instead of, say, studying the company behind a stock to evaluate its financial health, competitive position and growth prospects, a swing trader will just observe the stock prices movements, looking for patterns and drawing conclusions from them. Many of us at The Motley Fool see that as speculation. We prefer to buy-to-hold, investing in businesses via stocks, considering ourselves the part-owners that we become, and aiming to hold on for years, if possible, as long as the investment remains compelling. Googles GrowingRecently sporting a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio near 25, a market value close to $300 billion and a stock price north of $800, Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) might seem like a stock too richly valued. Think again, though, as the company still has much room for growth. For one thing, look at its growth rates, as revenue has averaged 21 percent growth over the past five years, and earnings by about 19 percent. Over the next year, analysts expect Google to grow by nearly 18 percent, and by more than 14 percent over the next five years. Google is perfectly primed to mint money in our increasingly mobile future as its Android operating system has become the global standard in mobile computing. Its profit margins are likely to take a hit as it adds more hardware revenue from smartphones, tablets and laptops, in part due to its acquisition of Motorola. But it remains the global king of searches and a leader in online advertising. The companys innovation holds much promise, too just think of its Gmail, Google Maps and Chrome browser. Its working on self-driving automobiles now, and launching high-speed Internet and television service in some cities. Considering how rapidly Google is growing, its stock seems at least fairly valued, if not rather attractively valued. Give it some consideration for your long-term portfolio. I was founded in Arkansas in 1935 by a guy whose name I bear. He began by delivering chickens in the Midwest, and today Im one of the worlds largest food production companies, processing and marketing chicken, beef and pork. I even offer pizza toppings and tortilla chips. In 2012, my sales topped $33 billion and my average weekly production was 41 million chickens and 400,000 pigs, among other things. I serve customers in about 130 nations and employ 115,000 people in more than 400 facilities. My brands include Corn King, Holly Farms, Bonici, Wunderbar and Weaver. Who am I? (Answer: Tyson Foods) Where Do Dividends Go?QI recently noticed that a certain mutual funds top holdings included some solid dividend-paying companies. Would you please explain where those quarterly dividends go? Do the companies pay those dividends to the mutual fund managers? K.W., Tulsa, Okla.AWhen a mutual fund owns shares of a dividend-paying stock, the dividends paid belong to the shareholders, not the fund managers. Typically, when you first invest some money in a fund, youll be asked to specify whether youd like to receive the dividends as cash payments or have them reinvested in additional shares of the fund. After a fund receives dividends and before it distributes them to shareholders, the dividends value is added to the funds net asset value (NAV). Later, the NAV is reduced to reflect the departure of accumulated dividends. So dont be alarmed if you see a fund suddenly drop in value one day it might simply mean that a large distribution was made. ***QIs this a good time to start contributing to a 401(k) account at work? S.N., Gainesville, Fla. AIts almost always a good time. When it comes to retirement, most of us should be regularly saving and investing, without much regard for the state of the economy. As weve been digging out of a recession recently, now is far from the worst time to invest. Many of us should be saving and investing aggressively, too, not just socking away 3 percent of our salaries. Crunch some numbers and see how much youll need in retirement and how much youll need to save. You might need to sock away 10 percent or even 20 percent or more of each paycheck. Consider a broad-market index fund for long-term money. Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us f n a d a r mor e ca l en d an d g r W h o a m

But year-round residents and events such as tarpon tournaments make the summer nearly as profitable, said Ken Strasen, owner of Master Bait and Tackle on Bonita Beach Road. As soon as seasons over, all the guys come out of the woodwork that have been working their butts off and go fishing, he said. And beyond the direct sales for fishing-related goods and services industry-wide, the great Florida pastime is estimated to have a total $8.6 billion economic impact each year when the multiplier effect is taken into account, the ASAs report says. Those are all the unrelated industries fishing affects. Fishings pretty broad based, said Dr. Gary Jackson, Ph.D., director of the Regional Economic Research Institute and assistant professor at Florida Gulf Coast University. Because you have to think if you go fishing what do you need? Mr. Strasen suggests, If they dont have their equipment, they have to get their rods and reels and hooks and lures and sinkers. Then there are sandwiches, beer and whatever else anglers buy on the way to the water. Youre bringing people in from other counties spending money in your county, said Betty Staugler, Florida Sea Grant extension agent with the University of Florida/IFAS extension in Charlotte County. Theyre staying in hotels, theyre buying gas at gas stations. Theyre buying bait, buying ice, food, eating in restaurants, going to the movies all those things we dont necessarily think of as a direct impact. Conservation effortsAll this is good news for the economy, but the enormous interest of anglers in Florida also raises concerns about declining populations among various species. At the same time the state put new restrictions on fishing for tarpon this month, it also reopened snook fishing, ending a ban that started in January 2010. The ban helped restore the snook population after a devastating freeze. Some say 3 years wasnt enough time. As a fisherman you have to be conservation minded, said T.J. Haley, manager of The Bait Box on Sanibel Island. I for one would like to have the snook season closed for another year to make sure we have a snook population for my kids kids to fish, you know? JoEllen Morris and her husband Rhett Morris agreed. Owners of Beyond Borders Outfitters in Charlotte County, they offer fishing charters year round. They worry that with Floridas huge population of anglers, even longer bans on other fish, be it snook, sea trout or redfish, could hurt business in years to come. Were looking five to 10 years down the road and were really concerned about our fishery and the impact all these fishermen will have on it, said Mrs. Morris. For us, opening snook season, theyre about to take two steps back for the two steps forward they took. It just doesnt really make sense in our mind. But they are also encouraged by general attitudes about fishing. These days, their customers are seeking the thrill of the catch over the tally of fish taken home. People want to see their fishing rods bend over, they want to see their drag running off their reel, they want to have fun, said Mr. Morris, a long-time Charlotte County charter boat captain. Fifteen years ago they wanted to see fish stacked up dead in a cooler. While he has been preaching conservation for years, Mr. Morris adds, The tide has turned. In the last five years, I have seen a 180-degree turn in young and old. People are ready for conservation. That conservation has taken different forms. Mr. Haley of The Bait Box on Sanibel notes that fewer people keep fish to mount them on their wall these days. Instead of having a fish taxidermied and mounted, companies now can produce a nearly identical fish from a photograph, he said. Ms. Staugler, the Florida Sea Grant extension agent, said the last 10 to 15 years have brought more interest in catch-and-release fishing as well. And with that comes education for handling practices. For example, offshore reef fish, including snapper and grouper, have swim bladders that expand too fast and rupture when theyre brought to the surface quickly. She worked with anglers to design what is essentially a hollow hypodermic needle used to puncture the fish behind the pectoral fin and relieve the pressure. That doesnt guarantee survival, she said, but it helps. Artificial reefs also play a part in conservation by creating larger habitats and food sources for sought after fish, said Mike Campbell, head of the artificial reef program in Lee County. The great thing about artificial reefs is they dont require any maintenance so its a one-time spend and nature maintains them from there on out, Mr. Campbell said. The return on investment over time gets larger and larger and larger. When it comes to the fish themselves, he gives tarpon his vote as MVP. While they are primarily caught from early to mid-summer, people come to Southwest Florida from around the world to take a crack at the silver king. Tarpon anglers alone in Charlotte, Lee, Collier and Sarasota counties have an annual $108 million economic impact, according to a 2011 study by the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust for the Everglades Foundation. You know, some people wait their whole lives, and thats on their bucket list of things to do, Mr. Campbell said of catching a tarpon. Its an event that also brings in media buzz about it and all that provides added advertising value for our area. Whereas when people go out fishing for grouper and things like that, its just a great day on the water. FISHINGFrom page 1 Free shing daysGov. Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are doing their part to encourage even more people to pick up a rod and reel in the Sunshine State by offering free shing days. Usually the state waives the requirement to have a recreational shing license for four days per year. A few weeks ago, of cials added four more days. Those additional saltwater licensefree shing days will be Oct. 12 and Nov. 30 and additional freshwater license-free days will be Nov. 29 and Dec. 28. Events like these help grow the industry even more, Gov. Scott said in a press release. These days are a great way to introduce more Floridians to the lifetime sport of shing. The commission also set dates for 2014 and beyond. All eight days will now fall on the same day of the week from year to year, allowing potential anglers to plan shing trips in advance. For 2014 and beyond, the following dates will be license-free shing days:SaltwaterFirst Saturday and Sunday in June First Saturday in September Saturday following ThanksgivingFreshwaterFirst Saturday and Sunday in April Second Saturday and Sunday in June All other regulations such as seasons, size limits and bag limits still apply on these days.

PAGE 54 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSSuffering fools less gladlyI am a tolerant person. I routinely overlook the sort of bad behavior that would be a deal breaker for most people, and theres not much I wont excuse. Stand me up for a date, forget my birthday, throw up in my car: I can get over just about anything. We are, all of us, deeply flawed human beings. Ive certainly committed enough transgressions standing up people for dates, forgetting birthdays, throwing up in cars that I find it nigh impossible to stand in judgment of anyone else. But even I cannot forgive everything. As a hazard of this trade, I receive a lot of sm utty mail. That is understandable and also pardonable. If Im going to dish out naughtiness, I should be prepared to receive a certain amount in return. Still, Im always shocked by just how much of the smut comes from men I know. These are men Ive met in real life, whom I have a relationship with off these pages, men who have taken me to dinner and listened to my secrets, men who believe our connection might someday extend beyond friendship. These are the men who surprise me with their filthy messages, as if they learned nothing during our time together. Because if they had, they would know Im not the kind of woman who enjoys dirty missives. But as I said, I am a tolerant soul. So when I received an e-mail message this week from a man who I thought was courting me, I was prepared to overlook every inappropriate remark. I could ignore the use of the words pubic hair, which are icky and make me shudder. No woman wants to read about that, her own or anyone elses. I could forgive the term pudendum, which is as perplexing as it is vulgar. Why a man would select that particular word among the many better options is beyond me. But even with that flagrant transgression of propriety, I retained my vast capacity for forgiveness. What I could not forgive was this: the line in the message that said I have a good body. For. My. Age. I gasped as I read it. Women do not want to be told that were holding up well. We dont want to hear that you know weve gone soft in the middle or that parts of our body are not as firm as they once were. We want to be told that were beautiful without qualifiers. In a recent Dear Abby column, a woman wrote in to say that an old boyfriend had landed in jail and was contacting her. He asked her for money and letters, and though the woman admitted she had bitter memories about their relationship, she asked how she could extricate herself without hurting her former boyfriends feelings. As far as Im concerned, hurting his feelings should have been the last thing on her mind. As women, we get so wrapped up in being kind and tolerant that we forget to set clear boundaries. So heres mine: If youre going to write me smut, have the good sense to say something nice. And you can leave out the pudendum. Complimentary consultations 239-313-2553*Restrictions apply.

PAGE 56 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 back on more than 100 shows. Theatre Conspiracy was born out of frustration and desire the desire to act, and the frustration that there werent any appropriate venues available. When Mr. Taylor graduated from Edison Community College, where he studied theater, he and fellow student Bill Gilmore were lamenting the fact that there werent any challenging roles for them in Fort Myers. Everybody was doing Neil Simon and musicals, he says. So we decided to do our own shows. He and Mr. Gilmore put on Patrick Meyerss K2, a two-man show about two men stranded on K2, the secondhighest mountain in the world. They performed it at the now-defunct Actors Workshop on Kenwood Lane in Fort Myers. It was a powerful show, with adult language not exactly the kind of thing local audiences were used to seeing, especially in the s. We actually did make a profit, Mr. Taylor says, adding that as a nod to the avalanche that took place in their inaugural show, the two Bills named their company Avalanche Productions. Mr. Gilmore moved away soon after, in search of more opportunities, but Mr. Taylor reinvested his portion of the K2 profit into a new play, another two-man show, Greater Tuna, which he performed with Tim Egan. Mr. Taylor and friends continued to put on some small shows at the Kenwood Lane venue. When the Royal Palm Players went out of business, their space on Mildred Drive (across from Edison Mall on U.S. 41) became available. Mr. Taylor set up shop there, doing business as Southwest Theater Conspiracy. We did OK, he says. But at the end of a year, they owed $5,000. The landlord gave him an ultimatum: pay the money, or leave. They were fairly religious, and we had put on Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, he says. I think they didnt understand what the show was. He didnt have the $5,000, so he vacated the building. Ironically, just a couple weeks later, Southwest Theater Conspiracy received a grant for $5,000. But it was too late. The sad thing was, we had to turn the grant down because we were out of a location, he says. Mr. Taylor left town and bounced around, as he says, moving to Boston and then to Los Angeles. In 1990, he received a call from his former theater teacher, Dick Westlake, who had started an Equity company called The Company. Mr. Taylor agreed to come back to town to act in some shows, and it was there that he reunited with his wife-to-be, Lauren Drexler, a decade after the two had first met as students at Edison. They performed together in the Companys production of the madcap comedy, The Little Hut. The Company originally performed on Sanibel Island and eventually became the first resident theater troupe at the Alliance for the Arts. When it went out of business, the Alliance asked Mr. Taylor he if would establish a new resident company there. He agreed. And thats when Theatre Conspiracy was born, 20 years ago. Theatre Conspiracy is his vision and his baby, Ms. Drexler says. When you look back, there was not that much to choose from. At Theatre Conspiracy, you could see these upand-coming playwrights, shows that werent done in this area before. In anticipation of their anniversary season, Mr. Taylor is looking back over 20 years of press clippings and production photos. He wants to compile a complete list of the shows he has produced. There are numerous highlights. He started the New Play Contest 15 years ago, an annual competition that drew more than 400 submissions this year. The contest started in conjunction with the New Arts Festival that used to take place every summer in Fort Myers. The Parsons Dance Company would come down. We would have music, classically trained artists, he recalls. They had the dance, and they had the music, but they didnt have the theater component of it. I asked if we could start doing new works as part of the festival, and they agreed. Though the New Arts Festival ended, the New Play Contest continued on. Looking over the past 19 seasons, he lists Parallel Lives: The Kathy and Mo Show as one of his favorites. Then theres Becoming Eleanor, in which Ms. Drexler portrayed Eleanor of Aquataine. Written by Marsha Lee Sheiness, it was a New Play Contest winner. Robert Kalfin directed, and the play went on to be published. Another favorite of Mr. Taylors was one of the shows that nobody really saw, he says, due to the subject matter and the fact that it was three acts. The show was Under the Third Reich, for which Mr. Taylor came up with original staging that involved scene changes being done by prisoners in a concentration camp overseen by Nazi guards. When one prisoner made a mistake, the guards shot him. It was all part of the show, he says about the innovative staging. It lent so much more power to it. We did pretty well, he says, looking back on it all. I think there wasnt a huge audience, but an audience that was a little more educated, a little more risktaking, a little more cosmopolitan, that were looking for shows like that. In the beginning, we were taking it one show at a time, and now its one season at a time. We were never looking that far into the future, and here we are. Its stunning sometimes, to think weve been around that long. Ms. Drexler says that when shes out shopping at the supermarket, people often come up to her and mention specific shows and how much they appreciate having Theatre Conspiracy in town. She knows exactly how they feel. Even if I wasnt married to Bill, she says, Id still be the biggest Theatre Conspiracy fan in the world.

I think hes one of those true theater people where its really about the work and the process; its not just for great nancial awards His wife, Lauren Drexler, is the same way. Theres been a total commitment to making it work, through good times and bad They really chose to make a commitment to theater, no matter what. Whether he has to build the sets 24/7, act and direct, he seems able to juggle a love for his theater and his family in an admirable way. Maureen BashawFormer theater critic, The News-PressBack then, in Fort Myers, none of the theaters here were cutting edge. Thats what Theatre Conspiracy (brought to the community). Bill has had this dream for many years now of having a playhouse for Theatre Conspiracy, a place to call their own. He has some really faithful followers, (but) nobodys come up with a few million, which is what he needs (to build a playhouse). Bill is a tremendously talented person. Hes a wonderful actor. I think hes done a wonderful job of opening peoples eyes and ears to what can be done on stage. He couldnt have done any of this without (his wife), Lauren. Shes such a beautiful person inside and out. Karen GoldbergActor, director at Theatre ConspiracyIve been with him since the beginning. I was involved in the original incarnation of Southwest Theatre Conspiracy Essentially, we wanted a place to do the plays we wanted to do. None of us were going to move away. We wanted to make this the best theater community we could have for ourselves, to bring in shows that nobody else was doing. From the classics to the cutting edge, that was our motto Its evolved over time. We didnt abandon the classics, but we like to promote the newest works Bill is such a strong talent and inspiration that anyone who ends up working with him steps up their game and rises to his expectations. He doesnt settle for good. He wants great at all times.

For many, the duo provided the soundtrack for their lives. For a younger generation, Mr. Bacharach is the composer they were introduced to via the Austin Powers movies. Joe (John Ramsey), the lead character in Burt and Me, falls into the former category. Growing up in the s, hes more passionate about Mr. Bacharachs music than he is about basketball. Whos Burt Bacharach? hes asked. The greatest composer of our time, he declares. Burt and Me, playing at the Broadway Palm Theatre through Oct. 5, is a jukebox musical featuring the music of Mr. Bacharach and Mr. David. The book, written by Larry McKenna, is more cute than clever, but he manages to weave the famous songs into the action in a way that doesnt seem overly contrived. Next to seeing Dionne Warwick in concert or Mr. Bacharach himself this is the best way to hear the music, song after glorious song: Do You Know the Way to San Jose? Wishin and Hopin, The Look of Love, W alk On By, I Say a Little Prayer for You, Ill Never Fall in Love Again. The show contains 20 of the duos hits (I wish Mr. McKenna had somehow found a way to work in Anyone Who Had a Heart). The opening number Always Something There to Remind Me is a little rough. I couldnt tell if it was the arrangement or the blend of these particular voices. But the renditions improve. Performing such unique songs can be a challenge, not only because of their irregular phrasing and changing meters, but because the originals are so well known to everyone that its difficult not to compare. Burt Bacharach/Hal David tunes have been performed by a wide range of people, including Isaac Hayes, Love, J ackie DeShannon, BJ Thomas, Tom Jones, Naked Eyes, Dusty Springfield and of course, Dionne Warwick, who had hit after hit after hit with their songs. The actors have to make the songs their own and make us believe that they believe the lyrics. Burt and Me follows the classic plot: Boy meets Girl, Boy gets Girl, Boy loses Girl, Boy and Girl reunite. Joe is an appropriate name for the lead character, as hes a regular Joe, an Everyman the audience can relate to. Mr. Ramsey has a lovely tenor and carries the show, narrating it and speaking directly to the audience. Hes winsome and engaging, a likeable character. Kate Marshall plays Lacey, Joes love interest. Shes sweet, but unfortunately, because of how the show is written, we dont get to know her as well. We get to know all about Joe, his thoughts and feelings, but not that much about Lacey. But when given the spotlight, Ms. Marshall shines in numbers such as One Less Bell to Answer and Knowing When to Leave. Five other actors back the two leads. Rendell DeBose and Sheira Feurstein seem to be there purely as comedic foils. Two other actors, Sami Doherty and Taylor Murphy Hale, are underutilized and seem to be there just as two more bodies onstage. Chuck Caruso, the casts seventh member, plays a variety of roles, including Joes father, a bartender, a nun and a priest who conducts the high school chorus. Choreographer/director Amy Marie McCleary has incorporated various dances into the choreography, such as the Jerk, the Hitchhiker, the Twist and the Cha-Cha, but at times I wish the dancers had shown more exuberance. The dancing and staging is hampered by a lack of space. A five-piece band, led by pianist/music director Loren Strickland, has been placed mid-stage, which doesnt give the actors very much room. (The band sounds great, and includes a trumpet and trombone, which play such a big part in many of the songs.) This musical is at its best when the songs arent performed for comedic effect. The show wouldve been funnier if the actors had found the humanity in their characters. Perhaps Ms. McCleary directed them to play the humor broadly, but it makes the show weaker. Ms. Feuerstein, as Joes piano teacher, is more caricature than character. The humor is very broad, almost Catskill shtick. However, the audience seemed to love her, and she even received exit applause on the night I attended. Ms. Feuerstein also sounds as if shes a belter; I wonder if her talents would be better utilized in a different type of musical. Mr. DeBoses energy onstage is almost off the charts. I wish he, too, had toned it down a bit. Its as if hes had a couple of gallons of Red Bull before going on stage. Energy is great, but not when its out of proportion with everything else going on. But Mr. DeBose has a great moment when, role-playing with Joe, who wants to ask Lacey to the prom, he throws a yellow sweater on his head and pretends to be Lacey. Like the minimalist set (by Tom Prather), the costumes (by Tom Conti) are functional (chinos and buttondowns or polo shirts for the men). Set in the s, the show has rotary phones and also references Nehru jackets, Petticoat Junction and Elvis. Though Mr. David the lyricist is mentioned, hes not highlighted (the show, after all, is called Burt and Me, not Burt and Hal and Me). Yes, Mr. Bacharachs music is magical, but Mr. David wrote such clever lyrics. For example, in Ill Never Fall In Love Again, the singer declares that shes through with love. But then Mr. David slips this phrase in: So for at least, until tomorrow/Ill never fall in love again, which leads you to believe that this is just a temporary setback and despite all frustrations, hope springs eternal. Or, the way Do You Know the Way to San Jose? describes L.A. as a carcentric culture (L.A. is a great big freeway/Put a hundred down and buy a car). It embraces youthful hope (In a week, maybe two, theyll make you a star) while also acknowledging the hard realities (And all the stars/Who never were/Are parking cars and pumping gas) while also, once again, talking about cars. Ultimately, its a song about returning home after failing to find fame. As jukebox musicals go, Burt and Me is a pleasant one. Its not in same stratosphere as Jersey Boys or Million Dollar Quartet, but its not inane like Mama Mia. The second act, when they tone down the shtick, is much stronger than the first.

Tickets are limited and available on a rst come rst serve basis.BENEFITTING RONALD MCDONALDHOUSE CHARITIESSOUTHWEST FLORIDAIs it worth $10? YesQuick: Name the last horror movie sequel that was better than its original. If youre drawing a blank, thats expected. Many sequels falter in trying to recreate the appeal of the original while bringing novelty to a new story. Horror movies especially struggle with this because there are only so many ways a premise can offer scares. So while Insidious: Chapter 2 does take the story in a logical direction and evokes some solid grab-the-person-nextto-you jumps, its not quite up to par with what director James Wan (The Conjuring) accomplished with Insidious in 2010. Still, fans of the original and true horror aficionados will not mind spending money to see it on the big screen. After a brief prologue shows important events from patriarch Joshs childhood in the s, Insidious: Chapter 2 picks up right where the first chapter left off, with a possessed Josh (Patrick Wilson) having just killed psychic Elise (Lin Shaye), and Joshs wife Renai (Rose Byrne) in shock. Unfortunately, demons have followed Josh and Renais son Dalton (Ty Simkins) back from the Further (a purgatorytype setting in which demons reside and attempt to latch onto humans and rejoin the living), and a move to Grandma Lorraines (Barbara Hershey) house doesnt help. The middle portion of the story follows Renai as shes driven crazy by a selfplaying piano, ghosts in the house and baby Kali (Brynn and Madison Bowie) inexplicably falling out of her crib. Ranai also suspects Josh is extremely dangerous, but has no idea how to address the issue. Meanwhile, Lorraine enlists the help of Specs (writer Leigh Whannell) and Tucker (Angus Sampson) to figure out who (or what) killed Elise. With the help of Elises old friend Carl (Steve Coulter), this path takes some interesting directions that add clarity to the events of the first film while nicely lending substance to this story as well. The clear three-act structure feels a bit regimented, and given that the film gets better toward the end, its hard to call the structure a success. To his credit, Mr. Wan does well in creating an ominous atmosphere of gloom; little touches such as red light on the staircase and smash zoom shots (the camera zooms in while it simultaneously moves back, or vice versa) create an unsettling feeling of dread. This is exactly what we should feel, which leaves it up to the story to complete our satisfaction. There are some good scares and freaky moments, but what I found interesting about Insidious: Chapter 2 is that it plays like a drama at times, with legitimate family dysfunction and life-or-death circumstances keeping tension high. This is a good thing, because it means Mr. Wan isnt relying solely on scare tactics for the film to be effective. That said, the final impact is underwhelming. The slow start does it no favors, and although it makes sense conceptually as a sequel, it still recycles too many bits from the original (psychic table reading, trouble in the Further, etc.) to feel dynamic and new. Insidious: Chapter 2 is far from awful, but you need to keep your expectations in check. LATEST FILMSInsidious: Chapter 2 t W a a z s c >> As in the rst Insidious, watch the opening credits of Insidious: Chapter 2 closely for the foreshadowing they provide. CAPSULESThe Spectacular Now (Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kyle Chandler) Sutter (Mr. Teller) is the popular kid in high school, and he unexpectedly takes a liking to Aimee (Ms. Woodley), who doesnt have many friends. A symbiotic relationship ensues and a beautiful one at that. Touching, heartwarming and surprisingly real, this is a teen drama from Americas heart. Rated R. The Worlds End (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike) Five old friends reunite in a sleepy English town to finish the pub crawl they began 20 years earlier, only to find out alien robots have taken over the bodies of the locals. The comedy doesnt hit the way it needs to. Its as if the writers (Mr. Pegg and Mr. Frost) know how to write jokes for drunk dudes at a bar, but are notably less comfortable/competent when it comes to alien invasion comedy. Rated R.Elysium (Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Diego Luna) In 2154, poor people live in the decrepit wasteland of Earth while the wealthy live on Elysium, an idyllic spaceship oasis just outside Earths atmosphere. Earth worker Max (Mr. Damon) needs to get to Elysium where Earthlings are not allowed or hell die of radiation poisoning. The production design and visual effects look great and the story is intense throughout. Rated R.

PAGE 66 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 FLORIDA WRITERSA spy thriller that rings with important issues for young adults Two Lies and a Spy by Kat Carlton. Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. 256 pages. Hardcover $16.99. Karina (Kari) Andrews is not your ordinary teenager, though she has the normal teenage angst about boys, her appearance and high school. What makes her unusual and interesting is that Kari, 16, is the daughter of parents who work undercover operations for the CIA. Coincidentally, she goes to a fancy prep school in Washington, D.C., where she has a crush on Luke Carson, whose father just happens to head the agency. Kari has advanced martial arts skills, knows how to hastily improvise a disguise and is a shrewd problem-solver. She has confidence, energy and a strong sense of loyalty. All of this is tested when she receives a code text-message from her father that sends her into action. The message suggests a threat to the family. Kari has previously received instructions on what to do, where to go and what to bring if she ever receives such word from her dad. Taking charge of her younger brother Charlie, a computer geek who reads encyclopedia articles for entertainment, Kari is befriended by two men who at first seem to be colleagues of her parents, but turn out to be wouldbe abductors. She discovers the men are trying to capture her and Charlie as a way of gaining leverage against their parents, now perceived as Russian double-agents working against U.S. interests. With Kari and Charlies mom, Irene, locked up in a CIA secret prison, and their dad, Cal, missing, Kari rallies her forces in an attempt to prove her parents innocence and rescue her mother. The interaction of the teenagers is as powerful an ingredient as the thriller premise. One of Karis gang, Rita, is an expert hacker. Kale goes to a public school and is from a working-class background. Karis friend from martial arts classes, Kale plays a major role in the rescue effort and also in the adolescent class warfare when he runs into conflict with Lukes snooty sister, Lacey. Lacey is a sl utty f emme fatale addicted to her own appearance and bewildered by Karis inability to take fashion or makeup seriously. Shes not much help in the groups quest. Evan, a misplaced Brit, is an outsider who has somehow attached himself to this group. He seems a bit older and a bit wiser, but his way of playing the battle of insults with the others, especially Kari, seems immature enough even while witty. But theres more to Evan that I cant reveal. I can tell you, however, that hes quite attracted to Kari, even though she keeps fawning over gentlemanly Luke yes, Luke, the All-American boy who is somehow persuaded to lead the gang to his fathers CIA computer so that they can find out whats going on with Karis parents. Chases, fights, close calls, witty banter, disguises and lots of brainy insights from young Charlie make for plenty of fun and a lot of scares. Tension builds effectively, and the characters ring true, emotionally, as credible teen types. However, credibility is not the novels strong point. The plot points are pleasant concoctions, but they are highly implausible. Not to worry. Lets just call it a kind of super-teen fantasy and enjoy the ride. In fact, thats just what the author expects her target audience to do. Your dedicated, loyal reviewer worried briefly about the 14-year-olds to whom Two Lies and a Spy will be marketed. Is it too violent, too sexy, too foul-mouthed or too improbable? Then I spent a few hours with my 13-yearold granddaughter and realized, once again, that todays teenagers are, in some ways, very grown up and enjoy edgy fantasy lives. The good news is that author Kat Carlton, who resides undercover in the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Weston, has figured them out and has provided todays young adults with a daring reflection that might get them to put down their smart phones and read a book: a book that focuses on important issues such as loyalty, responsibility and self-confidence without being preachy. For todays teen nonreaders, reading this book is much, much better than reading no book. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

Surely, it would employ whatever means necessary to reach its intended destination. There was no arthritis. No tinge from the shrapnel lodged in his thigh. No congestion from last months bout with bronchitis. No Check Engine light on his Lincoln that would always go off when he brought it in for service. Nor was there a cracked taillight from Bernice carelessly backing out of her parking spot. His daughter was not getting a divorce and moving back in with his two grandchildren and their 80-pound golden retriever. The compressor unit for his central air did not need to be replaced, and was just fine. No, at this moment there was only one thing. Whether or not this prayer would be answered mattered far less than there being, just one thing. Simply, to be able to kneel down in this church as long as physically possible was everything. Round TwoBY NICOLE LOMBARDIFort MyersWalter Goodman wasnt bad at golf. He wasnt great at it either. With the Florida sun shining, and the smell of fresh cut grass in the air, Walter crouched down to examine his last shot. He held his golf club firmly in both hands. The sun was shining all right, right into his eyes. He squinted trying with all his might to find the position of the ball. He let out a sigh. Rising to his feet, Walter lined up he his shot, and swung. Ahh, missed again, he said. Walter wasnt a fan of the game. He didnt even want to come here today. It was his wife Molly, who suggested it to him and practically pushed him out the door this morning exclaiming, Thats what retired people do, they relax and play golf. Walter didnt know how to relax. It wasnt part of his DNA. Originally from Detroit, Walter and his wife moved to the Sunshine State a year ago, when he decided to retire from his job in the corporate world, trading in his suit and tie for shorts and flip flops. He glanced down at his watch. Noon, already, he said to himself. Walter grasped the iron golf club in his hands and raised it behind his back, giving himself a nice stretch. Swaying from side to side, he yawned. He eagerly returned his club to his bag, gathered his balls and quickly made his way to his car. He opened the trunk of his Cadillac, and threw the bag inside, closing it with a loud thunk! Once situated in the drivers seat, he fiddled with the radio, switching between stations. He grumbled a little and opened his glove box. Only one person could get him out of the mood he was in. Frank Sinatra. All right, Frank, take me home. Walter rolled his window down. He felt the warm breeze rush through him. He couldnt understand how people did this. Every day, people, thousands, millions, of retired people around the world, expected to do nothing. He was passed round one of his life. He had his family, a career. His children were grown and on their own. It was as if someone had rung an imaginary bell, Ding! time to begin round two. To what, lounge on a beach for the rest of his life? Or spend countless hours playing mind numbing golf? He thought his time could be better spent. Determined to put it to good use, Walter decided right then and there that he was going to do something worthwhile. A few weeks had passed since Walter had his epiphany in the car. He tried to fill his time with various things; bird watching, building model cars, fishing. But he couldnt find solace in any of them. Fed up with her husbands moping around, and abundant complaining, Molly decided to intervene. Walter, honey, you have got to get out of this funk, and enjoy your life, she said. You need to face reality and accept the fact that things have changed. Walter looked at her and rubbed his bald head. I know youre right Molly, he said. I just dont know what to do with myself. She sat next to him on the couch. She took his hands in hers and replied You will find yourself. You did it once you can do it again. Hey, I know what will cheer us up, she said. Lets go for a drive! Walter and Molly piled into the car and drove. Where they were going they didnt know, but that wasnt the point. He took Mollys hand in his and kissed it. I dont know what Id do without you, kid. Molly smiled and chuckled, Youve been saying that for ages. Weve yet to find out.

PAGE 70 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 A&E WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 Autumn inspires art throughout the agesThe first day of autumn this year is Sept. 22. It is the day of the autumnal equinox, a term based on the journey of Earth around the sun. On that day, day and night are each almost 12 hours long. It marks the days when air cools in the north and leaves on trees begin to change colors. Artists for centuries have pictured colorful fall landscapes. Cameo glass artists often carved decorations from layers of glass made in the fall seasonal colors of orange and red. A Daum Nancy vase made in France between about 1895 and 1920 pictures a lake scene with birch trees. The rectangular vase auctioned last year for almost $4,000. Q: Please tell me the value of a Martha Washington sewing cabinet that belonged to my great-grandmother in the 1880s. It has four long legs and three drawers in the front. There is a semicircular wooden storage compartment with a hinged lid on each side. And why is it named after George Washingtons wife? A: Martha Washington (1731-1802) enjoyed knitting and used a similar type of sewing table, without drawers, at Mount Vernon. The style you describe, along with its name, was not introduced until the 1920s. The First Ladys name was used to market the style, which became especially popular during the Depression. In other words, your great-grandmothers table is not as old as you think it is. But depending on its quality and condition, it could sell for about $200. Q: When cleaning out a cupboard, I found an Old Plantation wooden cigar box about 7 inches long and 5 inches wide. The outside and inside labels picture plantation scenes. Theres a 1901 IRS stamp on it. Please tell me something about the box.A: The value of old wooden cigar boxes varies considerably depending on condition. The Old Plantation brand name dates from around the turn of the 20th century. Some Old Plantation boxes have impressed labels, while others have paper labels. A box with inside and outside paper labels in excellent condition recently auctioned for nearly $500.Q: In the summer of 1972, I was traveling in Europe and read that Paul McCartney and Wings were to appear at the Montreux Pavilion in Montreux, Switzerland. So off I went. The streets were lined with posters for the concert, so I pried one loose, and today its framed and hanging on a wall in my basement. Any idea what its worth? A: McCartneys stop in Montreux was part of his new groups Wings over Europe tour. Your poster, obviously an original, is not as valuable as an original Beatles poster. Still, it could sell for up to $70. Q: In 1950, on my 5th birthday, I was given an Empire toy stove. It was made by Metal Ware Corp. I still have the little stove and it is still working, 63 KOVEL: ANTIQUES The colored leaves of autumn have inspired artists for centuries.

If you could give me any information on it, I would appreciate it.A: Metal Ware Corp. has been operating in Two Rivers, Wis., for more than 90 years. It has made steam engines, driving accessories, popcorn poppers, roasters, hotdog warmers and other electric cooking appliances. In 1921 Metal Ware Corp. bought patent rights to the Empire toy line from Hughes Electric Co. of Chicago and began to make toy stoves. The stoves worked and would probably horrify todays safety-conscious parents. Your 1940s toy stove sells today for $10 to $35, depending on condition. Older Empire stoves from the 1920s and 1930s sell for more. The company still makes and imports small electrical appliances. Q: I inherited a 12-inch white pitcher and small covered dish from my grandmother, who was born in 1880. The pieces are white with gold trim and are decorated with blue and yellow flowers. Inside the dish is a disc with a hole. The bottom of each piece is stamped Wheeling Pottery Co. inside a wreath. Can you tell me their value? A: Wheeling Pottery Co. of Wheeling, W.Va., was in business from 1879 until about 1923. The firm went through a number of mergers and name changes during that time. It made decorative and utilitarian pottery, semi-porcelain, art ware and sanitary ware. Your pitcher, from a toilet set, is worth $25 to $50; if you had the matching wash bowl, the set would be worth about $125. The small dish is a soap dish worth $15. Wheelings flow blue pieces sell for more.Q: Fifty years ago, my uncle gave me an old adding machine in a wooden travel chest. Its labeled Brunsviga, No. 25102, Midget on the front and Patented in the U.S.A., 12 June 1906 on the back. What is it worth today? A: Your machine is a calculator made by Grimme, Natalis & Co. of Braunschweig, Germany. The serial number indicates it was made between 1910 and 1920. A 1913 ad calls it a multiplying and dividing machine. It also does addition and subtraction, but doesnt print. Calculations are done by drums that revolve in one direction for addition and multiplication and in the opposite direction for subtraction and division. This type of machine is known as a pinwheel calculator. It was invented in 1874 by Willgodt Odhner, who sold the patent to Grimme, Natalis & Co. in 1892. The company changed its name to Brunsviga in 1927. These calculators are hard to sell because there are so few collectors of old calculators. Value: $100-$200. Tip: Green-colored corrosion is sometimes found on old costume jewelry. It will spread if not removed. Clean with a mixture of a tablespoon of vinegar, a tablespoon of salt and a cup of hot water. Rub with an old toothbrush or a nylon scouring pad. Dry completely with towels and a hair dryer set on cool. Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Tamiami Trail Naples, FL 34103Jeffrey Hall Owner of Cottage 840 Salon Inentor of AirPhysics CONTRACT BRIDGEReading between the linesBY STEVE BECKERBridge is not like tick-tack-toe where, if you make the right plays, you cant lose. In bridge, all you can do is to take what looks like your best shot in a particular situation and hope it hits the target. Here is a typical case. Assume you hold the South hand and open one spade in fourth seat. West doubles, and East responds two clubs. You jump to three spades to tell partner that you are just a hair away from making a game in your own hand, and partner, fully appreciating the value of his ace, carries on to four. West leads the queen of hearts, and when dummy appears, youre happy with the final contract. Your only losers appear to be a spade, a diamond and a club. You win the heart with the ace and play the king of spades, taken by East with the ace after West contributes the nine. This surprises you somewhat, but in a sense youre pleased that East has turned up with the ace. Why? Because this leaves West who could not open the bidding initially with a collection of mostly queens and jacks for his second-round takeout double. This in turn strongly suggests that Wests double was based on distribution, making him very likely to have started with a singleton spade. Accordingly, whatever East returns, you should next cross to dummy with a diamond, lead a spade and finesse the eight! When the eight wins, you have a right to congratulate yourself on working out Wests most likely distribution and then having the courage of your convictions.

You can help finish the fight against breast cancer!MakingStridesWalk.or g BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I am dying to know what will happen in season two of Syfys Defiance. Katie H., via e-mailA: I spoke with the lovely and talented actress Julie Benz and she gave me a few hints about what next season holds. The science-fiction nearfuture drama, which is currently filming its second season in Toronto, will take on a darker tone, as will Julies character. The world of Defiance has changed, she told me, and with that, so does the look of the show. We see a darker Amanda this season. A much darker Amanda shes struggling; shes having a very hard time. Her ex-husband was killed during season one; she lost her job, which is truly how she defined herself; and her sister has gone missing. Shes really in a bad place when season two opens. In the season one finale, we basically hit the reset button, so we start season two in a whole different place. Every character is in a different place than they were during season one. Creatively, it is so much fun to play characters who can grow and change exponentially each season. That is what you are going to see in season two. Its a much darker Defiance especially my character. Q: Whats the latest news on the judge situation on American Idol? Have they sorted out whos new and whos coming back? Tyler W., Fresno, Calif.A: Finally, American Idol has a judge lineup that could make me start watching again. Keith Urban will be returning for his second season, Jennifer Lopez has decided to come back after a season away, and newbie Harry Connick Jr. rounds out the group. Randy Jackson will be back, as a mentor, and Ryan Seacrest returns as the singingcompetition shows gregarious host. Heres hoping that this Januarys 13th season of AI is its luckiest one yet. Q: I love PBSs Foyles War, but I think I missed some of season seven. How can I catch up?

Or you can go to on Sept. 24 to buy the series seven DVD set, which includes almost two hours of bonus features.

PAGE 82 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC30 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 VINOLets raise a glass to the well-crafted wine quoteIts hard to say which came first: drinking wine or dreaming up witty comments about doing so. Pithy remarks come from all manner of people spiritual leaders, playwrights, comedians, politicians and, of course, the ubiquitous Anonymous, who seems to have had the most to say on the subject. Clearly, wine is a topic that has fascinated through the ages, from ancient philosophers such as Plato, who wrote In vino veritas (In wine is truth), to the 20th-century author/imbiber Ernest Hemingway, who opined that Wine is the most civilized thing in the world. More recently, actor Johnny Depp is reported to have altered one of his tattoos from Winona Forever to Wino Forever. So here are some of the more interesting things said about our favorite topic in the past few centuries. Feel free to trot them out the next time you and some friends break open a bottle. For easy reference, Ive broken them down into basic categories.Philosophy/rules for living Wine and wenches empty mens purses. English Proverb In victory, you deserve Champagne. In defeat you need it. Napoleon Bonaparte Wine improves with age. The older I get, the better I like it. Anonymous Men are like wine. Some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age. Pope John XXIII Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle. Paulo Coelho When Wine enters, out goes the Truth. Benjamin Franklin Wine how classy people get wasted. Anonymous One should always be drunk. Thats all that matters But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk. Charles Baudelaire Drink wine, and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. Ergo, drink wine and be saved. Medieval German sayingHealth/medicine The wine had such ill effects on Noahs health that it was all he could do to live 950 years. Just nineteen years short of Methuselah. Show me a total abstainer that ever lived that long. Will Rogers If a life of wine, women and song becomes too much, give up the singing. Anonymous Wine is the most healthful and most hygienic of beverages. Louis PasteurFood/dining I cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food. W.C. Fields What wine goes with Captain Crunch? George Carlin What contemptible scoundrel stole the cork from my lunch? W.C. Fields This wine should be eaten. It is too good to be drunk. Jonathan Swift In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, and in water there is bacteria. David Auerbach A meal without wine is called breakfast. Anonymous Coffee keeps me busy until it is time to drink wine. AnonymousEtiquette A wine is ready when you cant bear to wait for it any longer. Karen MacNeil, The Wine Bible The secret to enjoying a good wine: 1. Open the bottle to let it breathe. 2. If it does not look like it is breathing, give it mouth-to-mouth. AnonymousTruisms I can certainly see that you know your wine. Most of the guests who stay here wouldnt know the difference between Bordeaux and Claret. Basil Fawlty, Fawlty Towers My books are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water. Mark Twain Bad news isnt wine. It doesnt improve with age. Colin Powell One of the disadvantages of wine is that it makes a man mistake words for thoughts. Samuel Johnson Beer is made by men, wine by God. Martin Luther The discovery of a wine is of greater moment than the discovery of a constellation. The universe is too full of stars. Benjamin Franklin The best use of bad wine is to drive away poor relations. French proverb I like best the wine drunk at the cost of others. Diogenes the Cynic They say a glass of wine is good for you. A bottle is glass, right? Anonymous She gets to keep the chalet and the Rolls, I want the Montrachet.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19-25, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINEKomoon in Bonita captures the essence of a trio of cuisinesFor appetizers at Komoon, you can choose Thai spring rolls or satay, Japanese gyoza or tempura shrimp, Peruvian corn on the cob or potato cakes stuffed with chicken. For the main course, you can stay with your ethnic cuisine of choice for the evening, or mix it up: curry or pad Thai, sushi or soba noodles, or the national dish of Peru, lomo saltado, a beef stir-fry traditionally served with both rice and French fries. Thats just the tip of the menu iceberg, of course, but you get the idea: Komoon has a plethora of choices within the three cuisines it showcases. The menu goes on for days. This can be a good thing for dining parties with a diverse range of tastes and preferences. If one person is jonesing for sushi but others cant abide raw seafood, there are plenty of alternatives. For a restaurant critic, however, such a varied and voluminous menu makes it painfully difficult to get an accurate read on the establishments ability to cover such divergent culinary territory. If, for example, you can only order one Thai entre, will it be Panang curry or pad Thai? Is just one of these dishes enough to determine the kitchens mastery of Thai cuisine? Setting my ambivalence aside, I studied the menu for a couple of days before I came up with a reasonable sampling for two diners. Aside from a very nicely executed ceviche, I cant say that any particular cuisine of the trio really stood out as exceptional, but we found little to criticize in the choices we made. You can reasonably expect that whichever ethnic direction you go in, Komoon will not disappoint. The multicultural concept apparently is working. The Bonita location, the second for the restaurant, opened in August in the big shopping plaza at the northwest corner of Bonita Beach Road and U.S. 41 where Home Thai used to operate. Owners Saifon Sombun and Paul Adrianzen opened the original Komoon in 2011 on Pine Ridge Road in Naples. I ate at Home Thai once years ago, but I couldnt tell you how extensively the interior has been renovated in the interim. It has a pleasingly modern Asian dcor: minimal decorations, tile floor and a color scheme of red, gold and black with relaxing chill-out music in the background (one offnote: hints of cigar from the smoke shop next door). While waiting for the first course to arrive, we sipped a Peruvian beer called Cristal ($2.50 at happy hour) and a glass of chilled Hana lycheeinfused sake ($7.95). My companion said the beer reminded him of Corona (sweet, light, simple); the sake was a lovely, floral evocation of the sweet, juicy fruit. We decided to go raw with the first course: a mixed seafood ceviche ($14.95) and the Fancy Tuna Roll ($13.95). The former was one of the better dishes of the meal, a platter of intermingled squid, shrimp, shrimp and fish laced with lemon and lime juices and zest, red onion slivers and cilantro. Each morsel was cooked by the citric acid until just tender nothing raw and nothing rubbery. The ceviche was plated with traditional accompaniments of sweet potato slices and fresh and toasted Peruvian corn. The well-constructed sushi roll was so spicy that it didnt need even a dab of wasabi. It was stuffed with tuna, avocado, scallions and jalapeno, then topped with finely minced tuna and chefs special sauce (I sensed the funky presence of fish sauce). The waitress timed the next course just right. She and another server also kept our water glasses full. The only thing she didnt do was ask how spicy we wanted our Panang curry ($15.95). It was mild, so we asked for extra chilies and she returned with an impressive trio of choices: dried chili powder, red chili puree and pickled diced chilies. You want hot? They got it. The pork we chose as the protein was tender and abundant and tossed in the coconut milk base with crisp green beans, red and green bell peppers and fresh basil. We went Japanese with the other entre choice, as we didnt find the Peruvian entrees all that enticing. Within this section of the menu you can choose from teriyaki, katsu, tempura and noodle dishes with soba, yaki soba or udon. Im telling you, the decisions never end at Komoon. The soba noodles with chicken ($12.95) turned out to be a good choice. The steaming broth had the dark-stained hue and smoky flavor of lapsang souchong tea and the umami richness of dried mushrooms. Tucked within were buckwheat noodles, slices of chicken, shredded seaweed, mushrooms and a cornucopia of vegetables broccoli, snow peas, carrots, cabbage and baby corn. It was quite the hearty bowl, and we took the leftovers home in the sturdy plastic container the restaurant provided. At most Asian restaurants, dessert is kind of an afterthought. At Komoon, however, you can order Peruvian flan, tempura cheesecake or sticky rice with mango, among others. We opted for the Thai doughnuts ($4.50), fingers of fried dough served with sweetened condensed milk for dipping. They were quickly dispatched. Komoon might not dazzle with unusual sushi offerings or some new take on Thai or Peruvian food. But its good to have a reliable place to go when you cant quite decide which way to go.
