This one could wipe out the entire human race along with the residents of Texas. We knew it was coming. Hollywood hotshots are probably kicking themselves for not thinking of this earlier, before the virus was identified in 1976 along the Congo in Africa. It could have been another hit movie, like The Andromeda Strain, only better: The Ebola Virus. Its brutal. You can bleed from your eyelids not to mention less mentionable places. If you get it, you could turn into something out of the movie Alien. One minute youre sitting there with a good job: Youre an astronaut on the spaceship Earth. Youre having a nice supper in the galley with your pals, maybe wild-caught salmon and organic kale sauted with garlic, anchovies, extra virgin olive and red jalapenos, complimented by a fine sauvignon blanc. Say the Henri Bourgeois 2011 Sancerre Jadis, a wine with the sultry intensity of a parisiennes kiss, and the power of an F-350 truck. But the next moment something busts you wide open from the inside and youre spewing fluids, which get on everybody else. Result? End of humanity. AIDS seemed like that too, once. That was back when folks wouldnt even stand in the same room with an infected person because they were certain AIDS could kill them and all their children. And it did kill people. But not because they breathed on each other or hugged each other or sat in the same classrooms together. Not because they rode on the same airplanes together. No. In the vernacular of that day and age, they had to exchange bodily fluids, like the three Ray brothers from Arcadia in DeSoto County. Born in the 1970s, the boys were hemophiliacs infected by blood transfusions. That was long ago and the Ray family took the blunt end of a hammer called irrational fear, which is springing up again among some Americans. When Louise and Clifford Ray fought the DeSoto County School Board in court to let their kids continue in public schools, they won. Their courage ultimately changed the way Americans thought about the disease. But the next week somebody burned their house down, so they had to move to Sarasota. Two of the boys ultimately died and one continues to manage his disease with prescribed drugs. Now, living with AIDS is like living with diabetes. Its no fun, but you can enjoy a productive life. Like my niece, Yenu. Shes 16. Plays on the high school volleyball team. Became an American after my sister adopted her and three other kids from Ethiopia a few years ago. Unfortunately, she was born HIV positive. So what? The United States wasnt listening to Tea Partiers yet, so the state department let her into the country. Now shes part of a happy family. When families, communities and even countries put away the fear and look at the science before they go off halfcocked, they prosper. Back in the day, the science suggested that HIV or AIDS wasnt a threat if you didnt exchange bodily fluids. Which is pretty much what you have to do to get the Ebola virus, too. Heres what the Centers for Disease Control says about it, and about our risk as Americans: Health-care providers caring for Ebola patients and the family and friends in close contact with Ebola patients are at the highest risk of getting sick because they may come in contact with the blood or body fluids of sick patients. People also can become sick with Ebola after coming in contact with infected wildlife. For example, in Africa, Ebola may spread as a result of handling bushmeat (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats. The virus also can be spread through contact with objects (like clothes, bedding, needles, syringes/ sharps or medical equipment) that have been contaminated with the virus or with infected animals. Thats what we know. Thats based on science. So if youre in the habit of eating bushmeat from the Congo or cutting down trees with bats hanging from the branches, knock it off until they figure this thing out. Meanwhile, AIDS-schmades and Ebola-schmola. Of course, it seemed a lot more dangerous to dismiss AIDS so confidently 25 years ago because it really was a grim reaper. Retired infectious disease expert Dr. Bob Schwartz, who started the first AIDS clinic on the southwest coast and saved thousands of lives and who went to Arcadia to try to calm the fears of local officials when the Rays lived there told me this a couple of days ago: Its likely were going to contain this, and contain it fairly efficiently. But you have to get everybody on the same page (health departments, hospitals, the CDC). AIDS could have been altogether easily contained, too, if we didnt have a president with a gay son who ran away from it (Ronald Reagan), and a gay mayor of New York who ran away from it (Ed Koch). At least it was a bipartisan retreat. So how risky is Ebola? To date in our nation of 316 million people, three have died of the disease. Statistically, therefore, you have less than a one-in-100-million chance of winning a title role in the new reality horror flick, The Ebola Virus. And the only people who have been infected in the U.S., so far, are caretakers. So you Republicans are off the hook, as one comedian pointed out. She was joking, of course. Thats why shes a comedian. Were all in this together, this great country. And Ebola is not going to be its downfall or mine or yours, either. e i t c t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Southeast Florida is on the front line experiencing the impacts of sea level rise and in 2009 Broward, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Monroe counties developed a Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact to address the threat of saltwater intrusion on the public water supply, erosion of beaches, flooding of roads and buildings as well as to incorporate resiliency action plans in their local comprehensive plans to prepare for a projected sea level rise of twenty-four inches by 2060. Low land areas, wherein the majority of the population and infrastructure are located in areas less than four feet above sea level, are already experiencing flooding of streets and neighborhoods during extreme high tides and storm surge. The initial response involves a variety of measures including the installation of pumps and one-way valves in the piping system to prevent saltwater from running into the streets, retooling the storm water master plan and elevating new structures and roads. Of noteworthy interest at the summit were the quality of presenters, including business leaders from the insurance and banking industries who spoke on their concern with the effects of sea level rise due to increase claim costs and the financial risks of flooding. South Florida was frequently mentioned as ground zero for climate change due to its low topography and the acceleration of sea level rise and the elevated intensity of major storm events. The insurance industry is no longer able to rely on historical data because conditions are changing so fast due to climate change. Broward, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Monroe counties account for a combined Gross Domestic Product of more than 37 percent of statewide economic output. Economic analysis based on sea level rise models show significant decline in GDP due to climate change. James Morales, city manager of Miami Beach, spoke on the importance of communities implementing resiliency measures to provide predictable benefits to residents and predictable returns to investors. Mr. Morales further stated that the new reality requires comprehensive risk assessments to take into account such economic indicators as worldwide currency exchange as well as sea level rise. One of the most compelling presentations was given by Shannon Estenoz, director of the Office of Everglades Restoration, U.S. Department of the Interior. In her PowerPoint, Mrs. Estonez provided a historical perspective on how water from Lake Okeechobee used to flow to the Everglades and Florida Bay. Unfortunately, more than 400,000 acres of sugar cane fields in the Everglades Agricultural Area, or EAA, south of the lake has severed the hydrological connection in the Lake Okeechobee watershed and excessive release of water is redirected to the coastal estuaries on the east and west coasts of South Florida. One of the most meaningful solutions to counter sea level rise in South Florida would be to restore some semblance of a flow way in the EAA. Re-establishing the appropriate quantity and quality of water south of Lake Okeechobee would be extremely beneficial in helping to recharge the Biscayne Aquifer to protect southeast Florida's primary water supply, greatly reduce the risk of saltwater intrusion of public well fields and protect South Florida's ecosystem. Ray Judah is a former Lee County Commissioner. GUEST OPINIONSAmendment 1 will protect Floridas environment and economy BY RAE ANN WESSELThis Novembers election will be a critical turning point for Floridas future. On many levels the results of this years election will dictate the direction of what Florida will look like in the next 20 years. Why? Because Floridas population is projected to grow by 30 million over the next 20 years. Resources that are not thoughtfully and selectively protected will be lost to development. In the past four years the states growth management agency was eliminated, jeopardizing regional coordination, assessment and connections between critical state resources. Amendment 1 is the Floridas Water and Land Conservation Amendment designed to protect funding for conservation land purchases and restoration for the next 20 years. By passing Amendment 1, we can support our largest economy tourism while providing for our own quality of life, clean water and space for wildlife. As we emerge from the recession, growth is increasing, making it imperative that we identify and protect wildlife corridors and special places for recreation and relaxation including water recharge and wetland habitats that store and filter water before they are reduced to postage stamp tokens of what Florida used to be. Florida is the wonderful place that attracts visitors and residents from all over the world because its where one can enjoy healthy and diverse beaches, rivers, springs, forests and their unique wildlife. We can thank those who came before us who had the vision and saw the need to invest in wild Florida to protect it. Make no mistake, the economy we enjoy today is the legacy of that investment decades ago. This investment amounts to less than 1 percent of the states annual budget and, for that, it returns our largest income, tourism. Unfortunately, the legislature in recent years lost the vision that provided what we enjoy today. Voting Yes on 1 will help us protect Floridas economy and unique natural heritage for generations to come. Below are some reasons why we should all support Amendment 1: Amendment 1 is not a new tax, the money would come from 33 percent of doc stamp taxes for 20 years.The funds could be used by local governments for matching funds.It would raise $10 billion and sunset in 2035.Funds can be used to support Everglades Restoration projects that will help address excess flow and water quality in our river and coastal waters.The investment enhances and protects drinking water sources across the stateIt enables us to protect and restore beaches and shorelines on state and local parks.It allows connections between preserve land s with wildlife corridors and buffers to maintain water quality for fish and wildlife habitats.It continues a proud tradition of conservation of natural resources in Florida for future generations. This year we will determine the future of Florida. The choice is clear: support our tourism economy, clean water and natural resources unique to Florida or squander the opportunity and the resources, without which Florida will have lost the soul and essence that makes it special. Help us preserve the unique and wondrous natural and cultural heritage of Florida. Vote Yes on 1. Rae Ann Wessel is the natural resource policy director for the SanibelCaptiva Conservation Foundation. WESSEL JUDAH

Gail serves on the board of directors for the profesional theater company. As it turns out, Mr. Ludwig is a Shakespeare buff as well as a playwright. At the end of the evening, we were mesmerized as he quoted and explained Shakespeare in a way most of us had never experienced. Ms. Paster, too, is a Shakespeare buff. Well, more like an authority, having earned a doctorate in English renaissance literature and served several years as director of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. By the end of the delightful evening, the hostess and her guest of honor were acknowledging one another as leading authorities on Shakespeare. The oldest of six children, Gail grew up in Sea Cliff on the north shore of Long Island. Her favorite classes in school were always history, English and French. She and her future husband co-edited their high school newspaper (the relationship didnt progress to romance until after college). Gail graduated from Smith College and earned her doctorate at Yale. She has won numerous fellowships and awards from organizations including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and the Mellon Foundation. In 2011, the same year she was named to the Queens Honours List as a Commander of the British Empire, Gail was named director Emerita of the Folger. She continues to edit the Shakespeare Quarterly, write articles and pursue her scholarly interests in the cultural history of the body and the emotions. Gail says her teaching experience in modern British drama helped feed her interest in becoming a board member for Gulfshore Playhouse. I love theater, she says, adding she serves on the Scholars Council of Theater for a New Audience in New York City.

It was previously listed as No. 6 in 2013 and No. 10 in 2006, while Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park makes its debut on the annual list this year (the unspoiled beach regularly makes it on to Dr. Beachs list of Americas Top 20 Best Beaches). Barefoot Beach, which is 12 miles north of downtown Naples and accessed through Bonita Springs, covers 8,200 feet of beach and sand dunes. Part of Barefoot Beach Preserve, an area that spans 342 acres, it is one of the last undeveloped barrier islands on Floridas southwest coast. Praising it for its shallow water and gentle surf, Dr. Beach declares it ideal for bathing and swimming. Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park is a 166-acre park characterized by sea oats, sand dunes and fine white sand sprinkled with seashells. On this 2014 Top 10 list, Dr. Beach notes the parks observation tower and conveniences including bathrooms, changing stalls and outside rinse showers. Dr. Beach uses 50 criteria, including water and sand quality as well as safety and environmental management, in evaluating beaches. He has published 16 books and hundreds of scientific articles and reports about storm impacts, coastal erosion and ways to improve beach health and safety. The complete list of Dr. Beachs Top 10 Beaches for 2014 can be found at drbeach.org/top10beaches. In the meantime, here are the basics about some of Florida Weeklys favorite beaches.Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park Delnor-Wiggins Pass is lined with red-rooted mangroves and fishermen who congregate at the curve of the beach where the pass becomes aquamarine ocean. Along the beach itself around noon on a Monday was a loose smattering of colorful umbrellas and sunbathers on this spacious, mile-long stretch of sand. If the sun and the view of sand, water and sky grow old, you can always duck into a shady coastal hammock. There are five miles of boardwalk and trails to explore and dogs are allowed here, though not on the beach (bring your own baggies). Along one trail an observation tower makes a nice spot to observe eagles, ospreys and other birds (bring binoculars); a sliver of the beach and the tops of condos are just visible in the distance. Sandwiches and cool treats are served from a food truck in parking lot No. 4 (there are five lots total). Kayaks, paddleboards and other equipment rentals are available here as well. The entrance to Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park is at 11135 Gulfshore Drive in Naples. Hours are 8 a.m. to sunset every day.

The residences are private, but the city of Naples beach park welcomes all comers. A large shaded concession area is filled with picnic tables and serves offerings such as burgers, grilled-cheese sandwiches and ice cream ($3 to $7). Beyond that, there is about 1,000 feet of pristine beach. Parking is relatively cheap ($1.50 per hour). So are kayak ($25 per hour) and paddleboard ($20) rentals. There are also sandy volleyball courts, a playground and bathroom facilities. A few gregarious escapee parakeets have made the park their home, says Brad Hanson, who works at the concession area, and bald eagles occasionally swoop down and take fish off the beach. Mr. Hanson says beachgoers like Lowdermilk Park for its prettiness factor, ease of access and beautiful waters. He notes regular visitors include a man named Bill who shows up on his bicycle nearly every day. On holidays, he adds, its not uncommon for whole busloads of people to come over from the east coast of the state to enjoy the gulf beach. The entrance to Lowdermilk Park is at 1301 Gulf Shore Blvd. N. Hours are 8 a.m. to dusk every day. Info: 213-3029 or naplesgov.com Evan WilliamsClam Pass Park Clam Pass Park in Naples offers a unique entry point to the beach. After you park and pay ($8 without a county permit), stroll over to the kiosk where trams stop and go taking passengers to the beach (no charge). The drivers zip along a wide boardwalk (a plaque notes that it is actually made out of 4.23 million recycled gallon milk jugs), wending through a thick forest of mangroves and foliage for a kilometer until it opens into a lovely full view of white sands, water and sky. Once at the beach, theres a pavilion for shade and bathroom facilities. If you have a few minutes, skip the tram ride and enjoy a peaceful and shady walk. Among other creatures, colorful spiders make their homes in the foliage. (Volunteer guides from Conservancy of Southwest Florida conduct free nature walks at Clam Pass from December-April. For more information, call 2620304 or visit conservancy.org.) The entrance to Clam Pass is at 465 Seagate Drive. The Collier County park is open from 8 a.m. to sundown daily.

Surrounded by a long stretch of white sand beach and populated by visitors and locals alike, the popular pier stretching off the west end of 12th Avenue South is a community all its own. Youll find regulars such as Frank Vitiello, a fisherman who has frequented this spot since the 1970s, and a resident osprey that people occasionally feed fish to. Fishermen line the pier and congregate at the end; no license is required since the city of Naples bought one for the general public. There are restrooms, a concession and bait shop and fish-cleaning stations as well as a shady cabana out at the end. On-street parking is supplemented by a parking lot one block east, with additional parking at beach ends on the avenues to the north and south. Its $1.50 per hour to park. The Naples Pier is at 25 12th Ave. S.

Here, they can share their own love of sand, sea and sky with mans best friend. And here, too, the welcome is unrestrained both the official welcome and the welcome of other dogs and people. Officially, there are signs explaining the rules. There are dog showers, too, right off the parking lot, which means you wont spend the rest of the evening after you get home ridding your car of sand carried in by your canine. Unofficially, the people and dogs greet each other warmly. Pretty much anybody who brings a dog here knows it can get along with other dogs, says Doug Meyer, who climbs out of his vehicle with his girlfriend, Kaela Ballard, and their majestic companion, King, a dog so eager and friendly that Mr. Meyer keeps him on a tight leash at first. He and Ms. Ballard bring King to the dog beach about once a week. With the tide up, the three wade through a foot of water past patches of mangroves to get out to the beach itself from the parking lot. Other cars pull into the parking lot bearing more dogs and humans, and the occasional energetic barks suggest happy overexuberance, never hostility. If its a dogs life, its a good one, here.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 23-29, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYTigertail Beach Late one recent afternoon soft thunder rumbled over Marco Islands Tigertail Beach, accompanied by mist from nearby rain. But the rain never reached the beach. This is one of if not the widest beaches in the region from the gulfs edge it seems to run on forever, a small sea of white sand, until it reaches condo buildings. A software engineer from Atlanta, Juan Robles, walked along by the water, taking a break from a conference he was attending. He said it looked like a good place to meditate, with the cool air blowing in under graying skies. Tigertail Beach is unique for a few reasons. When you arrive (parking is free with a Collier County permit, $1.50 per hour or $8 for all day), you have a few options for getting to the beach itself. There is a tidal lagoon (providing a wealth of wildlife in itself) thats shallow enough to wade across to the beach on one end, or you can take a few minutes to walk around it the other way. The lagoon also separates the beach from a small island-to-be called Sand Dollar Spit. Signs warn No Lifeguard and Very Dangerous Currents, but Tigertails abundant natural beauty makes it well worth the visit. The park is also listed in the Great Florida Birding Trail Guide as one the best birding spots in the area. There are also bathrooms and a playground. Tigertail Beach is at 490 Hernando Drive, Marco Island. Hours are 8 a.m. to sundown. Info: colliergov.net Evan WilliamsLovers KeyThe state of Florida is a fine manager of beach retreats and their commercial pleasures. At Lovers Key State Park ($4 for a vehicle with one, $8 for a vehicle with more than one) south of Fort Myers Beach, the parking lot is where all that starts and ends, with food and drink, a well-planned gift store and the offer of guided tours, rental kayaks or bicycles (the kind with clownishly large tires that can handle sand). The beach is, after all, more than 2 miles long and laid out in a slender filament of barrier island just north of Little Hickory and Big Hickory passes, at the end of a long ranger-patrolled boardwalk that even accommodates a shuttle for those who dont want to walk the 250 or so yards out to the waters edge. For those seeking beaches with less people and more wildlife, this is certainly one of them. Posted signs warn visitors of a gopher crossing, while others advertise possible sightings of roseate spoonbills, green herons, little blue herons, white ibis, yellowcrowned night herons, tri-colored herons and great egrets, all waders by habit and inclination. Just like humans such as Martina Kopp, freshly arrived from her home near Hanover, Germany, and hustling along the boardwalk to catch up with her husband and son, who was enjoying a 10-day holiday from school. The family has friends in Fort Myers Beach, and they discovered Lovers Key after an online search, Ms. Kopp says. I like the life here I like what you see. We wont come in August too hot, she adds. But now, beautiful. Farther along, Tennesseans Susan and Ralph Bagnall have given up Nashville permanently and moved to Lee County for a very simple reason: Nashville is seven hours from a beach, he says. So once their kids were off to college, they made their way to Lovers Key. Just down the beach a ways, the Bagnalls stumble upon a remarkable sight: scores of horseshoe crabs scuttling along the water line in the mating dance theyve practiced for about 445 million years, the age of the oldest known shell. To see living fossils moving forward through time is worth any thousand sun-tanned beach bodies or jumbo dogs, they figure.

PERFECT. PELICAN MARSH.Fundraising underway to establish Imagine Childrens Health Center BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentMolly Barrow has had a policy of not letting money be a barrier to treating teenagers who approach her Naples-area mental health counseling practice seeking help. Now, she is stepping up to expand the availability of mental health services for youths throughout Collier County with the Imagine Childrens Health Center, which she hopes to open by December. Ive been doing that for years, says Ms. Barrow, who is a clinical psychologist, a licensed mental health counselor and Imagines executive director. It just felt right. From that I would like to expand it to be a free clinic where cost doesnt inhibit a parent from bringing a child in whos having trouble. Imagine Childrens Health Center will treat emotional trauma in the countys school-age children suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, autism, suicidal ideation, stress, low self-esteem, selfdestructive behavior or grief. The organizations mission statement declares it will provide hurting children with an opportunity to avoid lifelong suffering and to function again at their highest level in school, at home and with friends. Aiding teens afflicted with emotional issues is crucial, says Ms. Barrow. Teenagers can be so locked down emotionally that they resist nearly all parental advice, she says. Sometimes they will listen to a teacher or a counselor, but you are often walking on eggshells. I wish I could help all kids get perspective on what is important in their life and learn to ignore the drama of the trivial frustrations. Ms. Barrow is currently raising funds to establish the new center, which for now is operating out of the Anchor Rode Drive office her practice shares with her counseling staff and Dr. Christy Cugini, Imagines medical director. Its just too small and its not set up for children, says Ms. Barrow of the space. Imagine will be set up for children so they can walk in the door and feel immediately at ease. It will be the opposite of what a scary doctor would be. The first major fundraiser will be a Childrens Day celebration set for 3:305:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, at Freedom Park at the corner of GoodletteFrank Road and Golden Gate Parkway. The Bumbles and the Honeybees will entertain. A gala-auction fundraiser is planned for next spring. Ms. Barrow says shes heard from a multitude of people from all backgrounds that there is a definite need for such a facility in Collier County, especially for people of limited financial means. She also points to the findings of the Naples Children & Education Foundation, which puts on the annual Naples Winter Wine Festival fundraiser, regarding the need to broaden the availability of mental health services in the county. The NCEF states that 10 percent of the Colliers children will struggle with a mental health issue before the age of 10, regardless of race and income, and at least half of them will never receive help. The NCEF has a childrens mental health initiative dubbed Beautiful Minds that is also aimed at expanding mental health services for at-risk children. Ms. Barrow has applied to be a funding recipient in 2015. They rarely fund start-ups, but they can, she says. Hopefully Ill be one of the ones they fund because Im not really a start-up. She has been treating children in Collier County since 1988. Nutritional counseling from Dr. Cugini will be part of Imagines treatment regimen. Ms. Barrow says she has found from talking with youths that as some doctors believe, there is a direct link between consumption of wheat and dairy products and emotional problems. Itll be spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches, she said. You look at all of these kids foods and the kind of nutrients that the brain wants, theyre not going to be in those foods. Prescribing psychotropic drugs, she says, will not be the linchpin of her treatment approach. I dont like that, she says. That will the last thing that we try. Not the first. Ms. Barrow is considering a 2,000-square-foot, ground floor space in a building at the corner of GoodletteFrank and Pine Ridge roads for Imagines permanent home. She is hoping space for the facility will be donated, because many of the programs advisors and supporters own office buildings. It will take $50,000 for Imagine to equip its facility and begin receiving patients. In Naples, the most generous city in the nation, I know that will happen, she says.

Cleveland Ave. www.LightingFirst.us IN STOCK Clean & ContemporarySOLARIS by Signs of the timesSelfie fever has begun to sully the sacred Islamic pilgrimages to Mecca, according to scholars who complained to Arab News in September. What for centuries has been a hallowed journey intended to renew the spirit of Islam (that all Muslims are called upon to experience at least once) has come, for some in the so-called Facebook era, to resemble a trip to Disneyland, with visitors to the Sacred Mosque texting friends the evidence of their piety. (Another scholar complained in a New York Times opinion piece in October that Mecca is often experienced more as a tour packaged by marketers and centered around Meccas upscale shopping malls rather than religious structures.) The new normal Just in time for Californias new law requiring explicit consent for students sexual activities is the free iPhone/ Google app Good2Go, which developer Lee Ann Allman promises will simplify the consent process (and even document it). As described in a September Slate. com report, Good2Go requires the initiator to send the prospective partner to at least four smartphone screens, wait for a text message, provide phone numbers (unless he/she is a multiple-user with an account) and choose accurately ones sobriety level all before the mood evaporates (ending the apps usefulness). It took the tech-savvy Slate writer four minutes to navigate the process and she was still unclear which sexual activities had been consented to, since those specifics arent referenced. (The app has since been pulled from the market.) New York Giants tight end Larry Donnell manages his own fantasy league team by drafting NFL players for virtual competitions based on their real-life statistics of the previous weekend. Donnell lamented to New Jerseys The Record in October that he had benched virtual Larry Donnell on his fantasy team the week before because he thought his other tight end (Vernon Davis) would do better. In reality, real Donnell had a careerhigh game, with his three touchdowns leading the real Giants to a 45-14 victory. However, Donnells fantasy team lost badly because virtual Larry Donnell (and his weekend statistical bonanza) was on Donnells bench. A perfect worldIn August, the Tampa Bay Times reported a dispute in Dunedin, between 12-year-old lemonade-stand operator T.J. Guerrero and the adult neighbor (Doug Wilkey) trying to close him down as an unlicensed entrepreneur, despite T.J.s business plan for assisting his favorite animal shelter. Of course, T.J. was quickly inundated with donations, media praise and more lemonade sales. Wilkey, however, is under investigation by the city after a tipster revealed that Wilkey himself might operate a home-based financial services business not properly licensed.The campaign trailMy Friends, I Am a Man of Action!: Roger Weber, running for a Minnesota House seat in November, is now being sued by a neighbor over a propertyline dispute near Nashwauk. Rather than working with an arbitrator or mediator, or letting the legal process run its course, Weber in 2013 took a chain saw and sliced completely in half the large, twocar garage that Weber says sat half on his property and half on the neighbors. Sensitive in Vermont Lianne and Brian Kowiak of Waterbury, Vermont, complained to Ben & Jerrys in September that its new ice cream flavor, Hazed & Confused, was shock(ing) and upset(ting) and should be changed immediately. Though most customers recognize the name only as a play on the 1993 cult movie Dazed & Confused, the Kowiaks insist that they never be reminded that their 19-year-old son died in a college hazing incident. In Winooski, Vt., in August, the local eatery Sneakers Bistro earned public advertising space by beautifying one of the citys flower beds, and managers used it for the quixotic ad, Yield for Sneakers Bacon. After one woman complained that the sign disrespected those who do not consume pork, Sneakers took it down. The foreign press In October, workers at a clinic in Honda, Colombia, reported helping a 22-year-old woman who came in several days earlier with vegetation growing from her vagina. She said her mother had told her that inserting a potato (now sprouting) was effective contraception. An 18-year-old woman was admitted to Bishkek Hospital in Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic, in September with severe stomach pains, which doctors discovered was due to her long-standing habit of chewing both discarded hair and her own. Doctors removed a hairball that weighed 8.8 pounds (and a Yahoo News report had a photo). The family of Kai Halvorsen of Lillestrom, Norway, planning a holiday in Thailand, feared that their bulldog, Igor, would be traumatized, having never been left alone. Halvorsen and a friend arranged with Labben Kennel to make a replica of the family living room to calm Igors anxiety. The two men painted the walls the same shade of gray, brought in the family couch, built a replica coffee table, and moved in Igors bed, carpet, pillows and blankets. (However, according to the friend, Igor spent much of the holiday cavorting outside with his new friend, Helga, the St. Bernard.)

In addition to enhanced space for exhibits and educational programs, the center has a new restaurant, ticketing area and gift shop. The Fogg Caf is operated by Lurcat Catering, part of the DAmico & Partners brand, which will also handle catering for special events. Ted Flato, founding partner of Lake|Flato, shares this about his inspiration for the Chabraja Visitor Center: The goal for the center was to immerse the visitor in the lush environment of South Florida, to allow the weather and the environment to shape the buildings. Inspired by the practicality and simplicity of both early vernacular shelters as well the post-war modern architecture of Sarasota, the new visitor center is conceived as a shady, lattice-covered boat, floating in the landscape and enjoying a prominent vantage point to take in the gardens. The Garden received a $500,000 grant from the State of Florida, Division of Cultural Affairs, to help with construction of the visitor center. This grant, along with several other significant campaign contributions, allowed general contractor Manhattan Construction to break ground in early August 2013 on the $15 million project. The 170-acre Garden showcases the plants and cultures of the tropics and subtropics between the latitudes of 26 degrees north and 26 degrees south, including Brazil, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia and Florida. The three newest gardens join the Asian, Caribbean, Brazilian, Floirda, Water and Childrens gardens and the Preserve. The public is invited to a ribboncutting ceremony hosted by Bank of America at 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 23. Regular hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day (8 a.m. opening on Tuesdays). Admission is always free for Garden members, $14.95 for non-member adults and $9.95 for children. Regular events in the Garden include dog-walking hours, tai chi and yoga lessons, Master Gardener clinics and jazz concerts. For more information, call 643-7275 or visit naplesgarden.org.

The Narcotics Overdose Prevention & Education task force hosts the vigil in memory of people whose deaths were caused by drugand alcoholrelated incidents and people suffering from the disease of addiction. The key to drug prevention is community awareness, says DLCs Emily Naranjo, chair of the vigil. The misuses of alcohol and illicit drugs are well documented, but few realize the immediate and long-lasting consequences from even a minor miscalculation with prescription drugs. Karen Perry, executive director of the NOPE task force, adds, Too often, this disease is perceived as deserved and shameful, leaving families and friends to grieve in silence or an addict alone to struggle to recover. Only through awareness and openness we can eliminate the prejudice that has followed the disease of addiction. All are welcome to attend the vigil.

The largest in-water boat show in the world is Oct. 30 through Nov. 3, set on 3 million square feet of exhibit space over seven locations. This year we have more exhibit space than ever before, further-improved navigational aids and additional dining options, said Efrem Skip Zimbalist III, CEO of Show Management, the company that manages and produces the show There is a film festival, a bikini fashion show, artwork and food, as well as interactive fun and educational seminars. This year, for the first time, Hughs Culinary is having a Pop Up Restaurant at the Hall of Fame Marina. The marketing and event coordinator for Hughs Culinary, Alexandra Kamper, said there will be breakfast and lunch available and the evening will be reserved for private events. There will be a cocktail happy hour and a sushi roller. Cruiser Port at Bahia Mar, Slip 209 on the B Dock will also be hosting a happy hour daily, as well as free seminars for marine industry professionals on everything from the cost of cruising to boat handling, or tips and tricks for making the best boat purchase. The iconic Pier 66 is remodeling and will open its Grille 66 & Bar and Pelican Landing. Other locales around the area to grab some food or spirits include Coconuts restaurant, G&B Oyster Bar, the IGFA Sportfishing Lounge and the Sailfish Pavilion Bar and Grill. The Blue Wild will have plenty of ways guests can learn more about the various activities that can be done in the deep blue sea. They are located between lobby B and C. Look for their directional signs. A lot of people are not going to buy boats, but they can still learn and enjoy. We have seminars on Intro to SCUBA to free diving, to Spearfishing to Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP), said event producer Sheri Daye, who holds 15 world records in spearfishing. A lot of young people are getting into (paddleboarding). It is a growing activity, said Ms. Daye, who added that the seminars are all led by industry pros, like Manny Puig, who is a shark wrangler and swamp explorer. Besides seminars, The Blue Wild is also offering a huge collection of marine art, by artists like Carey Chen, Pascal Lecocq, Don Ray and others. Mr. Puig also is an artist and has created necklaces, knives and bronze sculptures. Another hot trend is SUP Yoga, and they will have that available as well. Elisa Buller will be hosting the class. This is the first time doing the class here. I offer a quick paddle technique lesson and then we have a short paddle to some calm water where we drop a kayak anchor and stay in a group for a flow that lasts about 75 minutes. No yoga or paddleboard experience is required for these classes. I will teach the students how to paddle and guide them through a basic flow. I will offer more advanced students variations and time at the end to attempt inversions and arm balances, said Ms. Buller. The International Game Fish Association will also offer seminars. Were going to have seven different captains: offshore guys Bouncer Smith, Ray Rosher, Anthony DiGiulian, Jamie Bunn and RJ Boyle and inshore guys Rick Murphy and Mike Holliday, talking about a wide range of subjects from the fundamentals and basics to specifics ... fishing offshore for sailfish and tuna, inshore as well, said Jeff Mackin, educational director for IGFA. Weve been doing this since 2010. The show always has interesting new technology and products. You never know what youre going to see. He added that now is a great time of the year to be fishing for mullet, baitfish, snook, sharks, tarpon both inshore and offshore, saying that the cold weather up north pushes the fish southward. He also sees a lot of sailfishing and kitefishing at this time of year. Kids can get into the fishing fun with a special clinic by Hook the Future. Aquazone is bringing the water fun indoors by setting up a huge pool to let people get a quick try at all the on-water action. What we have done is to bring in a 25 x 50 x 4 deep pool to the sailfish pavilion, 10 vendors and manufacturers, kayaks, Stand Up Paddleboards, hovercrafts, propane motors We are giving free live demos, General Manager Spencer Milligan said. He said they cater to the kayak and SUP crowd, which are popular sports that they allow people to try firsthand, but also guests can view the hovercraft. Last year, we had four booths. We have 17 booths this year with 22 different brands. It is a bit of a monumental undertaking. In addition, they will do Yoga as well, and have clothing and other products available. Mr. Milligan said that the show is moving toward showing larger and larger boats, moving away from the normal person. Show management wanted to bring it back to the everyday person bring toys back, he said. Once the daytime activities are over, there are parties and also the film festival.

Companies can use the AHA FitFriendly certification in their hiring and recruitment processes. There are Platinum, Gold and Community Fitness Innovation award levels.

General culture of health promoted at the work place Companies that do not yet meet the criteria can implement the AHA walking program in order to be considered for Fit-Friendly status.

Arthrex, Edison National Bank, Fowler White Boggs P.A., Lee Memorial Health System, Moorings Park, Lee County School District, The Commons Club (Brooks) and NCH have attained the Platinum level, meaning they have taken the Fit-Friendly program a step further by measuring the outcomes of their wellness efforts.

A32 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 23-29, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYWorld Stroke Day raises awareness of warning signsThe American Heart Association and American Stroke Association observe World Stroke Day on Wednesday, Oct. 29, in hopes of preventing some of the more than 137,000 deaths annually from stroke. Stroke is the No. 4 cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the United States. Here are some other statistics: About 795,000 Americans each year suffer a new or recurrent stroke. On average, a stroke occurs every 40 seconds. About 40 percent of stroke deaths occur in males and 60 percent in females. The 2006 stroke death rates per 100,000 population for specific groups were 41.7 for white males, 41.1 for white females, 67.7 for black males and 57.0 for black females. In 2010, Americans paid about $73.7 billion in stroke-related medical costs and disability.What is a stroke?A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or ruptures. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood and oxygen it needs, so brain cells die, causing the portion of the body affected to not function as it should. The Spot a Stroke F.A.S.T. app, available for free download, has helpful resources and a video providing a short overview of the warning signs of a stroke: Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg. Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding. Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes. Sudden difficulty walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination. Sudden severe headache with no known cause. Anyone experiencing some or all of these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention, even if the symptoms go away. Timing is crucial; certain treatments can only be considered within 4 hours of the onset of symptoms. For more information, call 495-4900 or visit strokeassociation.org. F.

Improv comedy techniques can help decrease the stress of dealing with such difficult situations. Learn more at Managing Stress with Improv Comedy, a workshop presented by improv actor and licensed clinical social worker Margot Escott from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31, at Unity of Bonita. Improv techniques are a fun and healing medium to help people tackle conflict and other tough issues because they allow people to be fully in the moment and go with the flow. After all, every day we use improvisation in our conversations with others; we dont rely on a script, and we dont have to try to be funny. The concept of, Yes, and (always accepting the ideas of others) is the first rule of improv. The second is that there are no wrong ways to improvise. Ms. Escott has practiced psychotherapy in Naples for 30 years and for the past 25 years has lectured locally and nationally about the healing power of humor and the importance of laughter and play. She teaches improv techniques to children and adults and performs with Improv Anonymous at the Centers for the Performing Arts of Bonita Springs. Registration for the two-hour workshop is $20. Unity of Bonita is at 28385 Imperial Parkway in Bonita Springs. Sign up by calling Ms. Escott at 434-6558 or emailing email@example.com.

Now Im a veterinarian, not a family counselor. But I do have some suggestions for minimizing the friction between those who always want their dogs with them and those who believe pets should never be imposed on people who dont like them. When bringing together people and pets, everyone should be honest about potential problems, as well as likes and dislikes. And you need to be honest with yourself about your dog. Is your pet well-socialized, wellmannered, and well-groomed? If not, your dogs not ready to tag along on a family visit. Your pet should also be up to date on preventive health measures, especially those involving parasites. If your dog is a party-ready animal, ask your host if its OK to bring your dog along. Never just show up at someones house with a pet in tow. My ground rules suggestion is that the person who has the ground sets the rules, and the decision to bend or break them is hers alone. If you want to take your pet to a family gathering but your son-in-law says absolutely not in his house, respect that. If your host has pets who dont get along with or would be stressed by a canine visitor, respect that, too. If youre dealing with someone who will become ill if exposed to a pet, the discussion is over. Leave your pet out of the mix. This extends to people who are afraid of animals or when there will be other guests who might be at high risk of injury around a pet, such as your great-great-aunt who has already broken her hip twice. If youve been invited to bring your dog along, heres what you will need: A considerate attitude Taking your dog to someone elses place is a privilege. Ask where your dog is and isnt allowed to be and where youll be taking him to potty. Potty bags You will need to pick up after your pet. And ask where those little bags should go after you pick up. Leash Your dog might be awesome at home, but in a new environment you never can tell. Good manners dictate you keep your pup under control. Crate Taking a crate when you visit someone allows you to give your dog a room of his own wherever you are and provides your host with options to accommodate other guests.Food dishes Dont expect to borrow bowls from your hosts kitchen. Take your own and ask where you should clean them after meals. Dont be offended if its a utility sink in the garage. Linens Its a good idea to take a sheet to throw over your bed if youre allowed to have your dog in your bedroom when you stay over at someones house. Pack towels as well, since your host may not want you to use the good towels to dry your dog. If youre a considerate guest, chances are even those who dont like dogs wont have complaints and you and your dog will be welcome back. Thats the goal, isnt it? PET TALESDogs welcomeTaking pets to visit family means permission and planning Before taking a dog to visit family, the health and safety of everyone pets and people, alike must be considered.

Elaborate, no? Could the days of lingerie, high heels and animal ears as costumes finally (mercifully) be over? Or maybe its just the age of my friends. The ladies behind all of the aforementioned costumes range from their mid-40s to mid-50s. Going nearly naked for Halloween is likely still popular for 20-somethings and/or those without stretch marks bless their hearts. So, what with my gal pals raising the bar, Im feeling like I really need to up my Halloween game this year. Actually, who do I think Im fooling? Ive really never had much of a Halloween game. When I was a wee diva, I longed to be a glittery princess or a sparkly witch or a glamorous ghost for trick-or-treat, but my mother loved me as a hobo. She thought hobo costumes were the cutest ever, so shed smudge some charcoal on my face, wed have fun ripping up some second-hand clothes and off Id trudge through the neighborhood with a pillowcase for holding all my candy. When I was 10, mom got together with my best friends mom and they thought it would be super groovy if Amy and I were Sonny and Cher for Halloween. Amy was taller, so guess who got to wear the sequins and the long black wig? In the meantime, I struggled with my adhesive moustache and too-long polyester pants. Then came the dreaded teen years, when were far too cool to dress up for Halloween (besides, if, like me, any of your adolescence was spent in the 1980s, then you know that every day was like Halloween with all that ghastly fashion and humongous hair). When I was in my 20s and 30s, it seems like I was always working on the night of Oct. 31, usually out and about taking party photos of other people in costumes. Usually on Halloween, Id try to get out of the house well before dark so that I didnt have to contend with any hungry little goblins at the door. One Halloween a few years ago, however, I was running late due to a crisis involving false eyelash glue, when a tiny fairy princess showed up looking for treats. All I had to offer her were some stale Tic-Tacs from the bottom of my purse and a few bleu cheese stuffed olives in the fridge. The little moppet was not impressed. These days, Im getting closer and closer to getting a costume game. It helps that my husband actually enjoys it. A couple of years ago, we dressed up as zombies, and while we arent as organized and creative as some couples we know, we have fun trying. This year, we could give Sonny and Cher a try, but the problem with that is that Im still the short one and Im not sure how well Todd would do with false eyelashes (that glue can be hazardous).Spooky Spooktacular!Put on your creative thinking cap for Halloween night Friday, Oct. 31, and make your way to the fourth annual Halloween Spooktacular on Fifth, as downtown Naples becomes the place to see and be seen for costume lovers of all ages. Theres a haunted house at The von Liebig Art Center, costume contests for pets and people of all ages (Humane Society Naples moves its Strut Your Mutt contest to Fifth Avenue this year), live music and more.

The event includes high-profile business and political leaders serving as judges in a first-of-its-kind regional public festival of the entrepreneurial spirit, modeled in part on ABCs reality TV show, Shark Tank. There, entrepreneurs pitch their ideas under the blinding light of public scrutiny to judges who decide whether to fund them, or not.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 23-29, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY of heating both neck and chest in cold weather with a small battery that can also be used to charge a cellphone. A mobile application/text notification s y stem (that) will alert consumers of discounts on nearexpiring produce and other perishable good in their local grocery stores in order to liquidate fresh food, which could be cheaper for the consumer, more effective and economical for the grocer, and a way of reducing greenhouse emissions in landfills, according to the entrepreneur. An idea to distribute worldwide the w or lds first functional artificial finger for amputees (which has) changed the way finger amputees are treated in the U.S. today. Mr. Riley and his team, which included one former Shark Tank competitor who had been through the process and knew what Shark Tank did to help bring the entrepreneurs up to par, look for three qualities in the bold, brilliant and ambitious, he says. Knowledge, first. Know not only your product and business, but know the competition and the market. Second, the ability to be extremely persuasive. And finally entertainment, humor and just passion thats an intangible in some ways. Presenting entrepreneurs also include those who aim to distribute cheese cake or barbecue sauces and rubs; those who will suggest design or use changes in buildings to turn power expenditures into profits, they say; an entrepreneur who is developing a system that will allow field scientists to collect and store data and metadata without any reliance on hand-written records or photos, thus reducing errors associated with those and providing both the parameters and various fields of data for given disciplines. In marine biology, for example, the system would bring up fields for dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity, temperature and ORP. No matter how good their ideas, most entrepreneurs start the process of pitch with some rough edges, when it comes to their own brain children. There is a definite different eco-culture and ecosystem of entrepreneurs, says Mr. Riley. They think a little differently, a little off-center in focus because they are completely laser-beamed about their business and they need help. Some dont know how to raise money, some dont know how to pitch well enough. Thats where we brought value. Judges and speakers together form a compliment of turbo-charged entrepreneurial engines capable of bringing significant value to any who attend theyre people who have made millions by relying on ingenuity, inventiveness and hard-nosed business acumen. Which is just what theyre looking for in the competitors. But the competition might also bring forward those qualities in investors, creating a perfect storm of opportunity for all, not just the entrepreneurs, says Craig Pisaris-Henderson, a 44-year-old Fort Myers-based superstar in the entrepreneurial world. He will service as one of the judges in the semi-final round of American Dream Seekers. Mr. Pisaris-Henderson, who now heads Lexos Media, has built a number of companies, including FindWhat.com that ultimately went public and had just under $1 billion capital on the NASDAQ and hes raised $250 million for various ventures over time, he says. He knows what it takes to be an entrepreneur, and its not just a good idea. Its also a good investor. Ive built companies large and small, and one that became publicly traded, and even though I tried to access local investors early on, they werent available. A lot of resources here hadnt been organized yet no one had put them in an organized system. American Dream Seekers, he adds, may help change what amounts to investor malaise in a region of great investor muscle. We have a wealthy area for finance and brain power, and most folks here who have been large business people, they come here from elsewhere to relax and not build their businesses. So they miss opportunities. On the day of competition, the 50 entrepreneurs who qualified as semifinalists will be culled to five finalists by late afternoon. Those five will present to the final-round judges in the evening, vying the $5,000 prize. Among the final-round judges are Michael Dent, a co-founder of InLight Capital Partners; Marc Farron of Kadima Consulting; Derek Vest, the founder of GenTech Pharmaceutical; David Diamond, a co-founder and owner of Diamond DeAngelis Construction, which includes a group of businesses; Steve Walling, who heads SJW Strategic solutions; and Timothy Cartwright, who manages Fifth Avenue Advisors in Naples, along with the Tamiami Angel Group of investors in two separate funds that have been powering up entrepreneurs with solid capitol for several years. Geographically, the investors range from Marco Island to Sarasota. Economically, theyve anted up millions so far, to collectively make private equity investments in promising early stage through expansion stage commercial ventures, in the boilerplate words of the Tamiami Angel Group. So far, the second of those angel funds, created last March with 39 investors and known as T2, has invested $850,000 of a $2.85 million fund to date (the goal for T2 is $5 million) in five entrepreneurial ideas that were once in the competition stage themselves. Now, they have moved far beyond that into real-world success. In addition, members of the T2 have thrown in an additional $700,000-plus to support ideas they like, on their own, notes Mr. Cartwright. This kind of support is where the competitors jumping into American Dream Seekers want to be. On the other hand, the entrepreneurs T2 is supporting also may hint at which way the world of entrepreneurship is going. Those ventures include Naples-based MassiveU, which designs online education and training programs; Miamibased Senzari, which offers an on-line engine to recommend music in playlists or song lists based on all public information provided about an individual but this idea has a social component, too. Friends can help create the playlists, even based on who the individual is with at the time and what they all might like to hear together. There is also Detroit-based Level 11, which follows and collects all the data that sales personnel are supposed to provide about their calls, contacts, number of meetings with decision makers, what they say and how they present their ideas and then allows management to set up competitions among them, and enforce right behavior. Or the Miami-based company 71 Pounds, a company that tracks your Fed-Ex or UPS shipments and holds those companies to their guarantees: if a shipment comes in even one minute late, 71 Pounds recovers the cost of shipping as promised, takes 30 percent, and returns 70 percent to your business or account. And not only that, adds Mr. Cartwright, but if you live in a highrise above ground floor commercial operations, for example, the company will ensure you get the benefits and guarantees of personal, not commercial, deliveries including delivery to your door and not a business downstairs, if warranted. Finally, theres an entrepreneurial start-up called Moveable, a Clevelandbased company that offers an internet-enabled small wearable device that tracks your physical movement, says Mr. Cartwright. Aimed at Fortune 500 companies or digital education programs in which students can take physical education courses on-line, the device allows monitors to judge the level of activity of individuals. In the case of the companies, managers can require employees to stay healthy enough, based on the level of activity, to help lower health care costs across the board for everybody. In any of these ventures, says Mr. Cartwright, success will not ultimately be achieved unless both entrepreneurs and investors can together create an alchemy he calls deal flow. As a judge of the finalists in American Dream Seekers, thats what he hopes to see on the crucial day nearly instant deal flow. The number of deals you see is the lifeblood that keeps your organization alive, he explains. So when I get a chance to look at (these entrepreneurs in one place) Im going to be there, and so should any other serious investors. There are lessons here for the entrepreneur, but also lessons and benefits for the investor. Among those benefits might be onestop-shopping, in effect. Think about what an individual angel investor has to do to go about attracting deal flow, says Mr. Cartwright. He has to go meet with an attorney, with an accountant, with the economic development director. He might have to try to arrange a meeting with the university. So actually finding good deal flow is a challenge for an individual investor. But here with American Dream Seekers you have prepackaged deal flow already vetted by the community and business leaders that could take months to develop, otherwise. And that could prove good not only for those who attend the competitive culmination of American Dream Seekers, but somebody for the community at large, as companies and jobs pour in, seeking a climate in which entrepreneurs are born.

MassiveU, which started as the worlds first mobile MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), is accelerating its growth as a project-based, social learning Platform-As-A-Service (PLAAS) company. The company works with content providers, publishers and school district leaders to deliver learning solutions that help students prepare for college and careers.MassiveU is honored to be a part of the type of high-potential, accelerated growth companies sought by T2 and its members, which include former executives of major national and global corporations. By supporting MassiveUs Southwest Florida entrepreneurs, T2 is helping talented individuals grow education technology companies quickly and meet the needs of online learners today and in the future.With the latest round of $330,000 in funds plus an additional $370,000 from a complementary group of investors with an interest in education technology, as well as initial funding from the Tamiami Angel Fund I T2, as lead investor, has raised more than $1.08 million for MassiveU. T2 sees MassiveU as a strong business entity that can make a real difference in terms of 21st century skills development for students, says Don Kiernan, a Tamiami Angel Fund II member and MassiveU board member. MassiveU is going to enhance the learning process in the country and worldwide. MassiveU was founded in 2012 by Angelo Biasi, a former New York University educator, and started generating revenue in April 2013. Today, MassiveU utilizes best-in-class technologies to support competency-based learning and 21st century skills. T2 has been involved with MassiveU since the companys early stages, working with Mr. Biasi from the development of his idea for a mobile-first learning solution to providing mentoring and funding. MassiveU is the perfect combination of a passionate founder with a technology-enabled idea, an experienced management team with a previous exit, and a solution to a real problem inside a large marketplace, says Timothy Cartwright, chairman of T2. Not only does the Tamiami Angel Funds investment support local entrepreneurs and job growth, it also supports the education of students in Southwest Florida and beyond, Mr. Biasi says. With the investment, the resources and the mentorship from T2 into MassiveU, were experiencing how early-stage investing can transform our Southwest Florida communities.The most recent funding enables MassiveU to create a fulltime management team of five individuals, including John Gamba, a new director of MassiveU and a Tamiami Angel Fund II member. Mr. Gamba has founded, funded and managed five internet companies in his 20-year career. Less than eight years after he cofounded PACE (Partnership for Academic and Community Excellence), a school-tohome telecommunications network that connected thousands of K-12 schools to millions of families in all 50 states, it was purchased by NTI Group Inc. and then sold to Blackboard Inc. for $182 million.MassiveU will also use the investment capital to further build out its technical platform to execute large opportunities with publishers and content providers in Latin America and other countries, Mr. Biasi says. Tamiami Angel Fund I & II LLC is a member-managed Florida Limited Liability Company designed to enable private accredited investors to participate in a disciplined investment process to fund promising early-stage through expansion-stage commercial ventures in the U.S., with a preference to those in the state of Florida. The fund is a member of the Angel Capital Association and the Florida Venture Forum. For more information about MassiveU, visit massiveu.com.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. The One Stock You Should Probably AvoidInvesting in stocks is one of the best ways to build real wealth over time. But theres one stock thats particularly risky for you to buy. Its so risky, in fact, that you should probably avoid buying it altogether. Which stock is this, you ask? Its your employers. From a pure investment perspective, its no riskier for you to own your employers stock than it is for any other investor to own it. But from a total financial risk perspective, trouble at that particular company can hurt you far more than it would hurt an outside investor. After all, should the company get into trouble, not only would your investment be at risk, but your job could be, too. In the 12 months ending June 30, 30,113 companies filed for bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Many were small, but even big businesses can run into trouble that forces them into bankruptcy.Just this past April, Energy Future Holdings filed for bankruptcy protection. It was taken over in a leveraged buyout that saddled it with over $40 billion in debt. That, combined with some bad bets on natural gas prices, sent Energy Future Holdings into bankruptcy. It wasnt a small company, either it had more than 9,000 employees and nearly $6 billion in 2013 revenue. Think of Enron, too, and the many employees whose retirement accounts there were unexpectedly wiped out. Of course, many companies offer some sort of equity stake as part of employee compensation, often via matching contributions to 401(k) plans made with company stock. If you find yourself with a significant stake in your employers stock, its not automatically a bad thing. But save and invest on your own for your retirement as if your companys stock were to wind up worthless. If your employer thrives, then your shares can be icing on your retirement cake. Consider your company stock a bonus and maybe an opportunity to retire earlier, but dont make it the cornerstone of your retirement plan, lest you lose both your job and your financial future. Both Dumb and SmartMy dumbest investment was not paying attention to my stocks. I let several stocks decline over time because my portfolio was not a priority. I just held on as though they would perform well forever. (The 2008 market crash didnt help, either.) When you lose 75 percent on a stock, you are definitely not paying attention, and you should probably be in cash instead. Fortunately, I kept doing nothing after they fell, and they eventually gained back what they lost and grew more. B.E., Land O Lakes, FloridaThe Fool Responds: Its definitely risky not to follow the progress of the companies in which you invest, but you made a smart move by not bailing when the market crashed and you saw how much youd lost. Many people do that, locking in losses and missing out on recoveries. Sometimes, of course, a stock falls for a good reason and for a long time. When you lose faith in a companys future, selling is the right thing to do. If you dont have the time or interest to keep up with your stocks, consider simple index funds instead. Calling T-Mobile T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS), branding itself the Un-Carrier, is aggressively improving its network. After more than two years of modernization that included scooping up a lot of low-band spectrum, T-Mobile now has the fastest 4G LTE network in the United States. Low-band spectrum is important because low-band signals can penetrate buildings better, providing better indoor coverage. Such signals also travel farther, which allows carriers to build fewer cell towers, saving on capital expenditures in the process. In 2013, T-Mobile moved aggressively on pricing to attract subscribers with promotions. The results are paying off, as T-Mobile netted more than 1 million subscribers in each of the past five quarters, gaining market share from its larger, entrenched rivals.T-Mobile is succeeding because CEO John Legere has positioned the company as an agitator a brand willing to call foul on its whole industry. With its Un-Carrier campaign, lower prices and more transparency than its competitors, the company is getting stronger. Legere has made it quite clear that T-Mobile isnt letting up on its aggressive strategies any time soon, saying: We have completely reversed T-Mobiles trajectory and started a revolution that is changing the rules in wireless.Many have speculated that T-Mobile would be an attractive asset for an acquirer, but its becoming harder to see how the company would benefit from such a deal when it seems to be doing just fine on its own. I trace my roots back to 1978 and a small natural foods store in Austin, Texas, called Safer Way. Without insurance, I was nearly ruined by a big flood soon after. Through the years, Ive gobbled up companies such as Bread & Circus, Fresh Fields, Wild Oats Markets, Allegro Coffee, Natures Heartland, Wellspring Grocery, Mrs. Goochs and Harrys Farmers Market. Today Im Americas leading natural and organic food retailer and its eighth-largest food and drug store chain, with about 400 stores in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. I employ 85,000 people. I rake in about $14 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Whole Foods Market) Dont Jump at IPOsQAre initial public offerings (IPOs) good investments? M.C., New OrleansAIPOs can be volatile and frequently dont fare too well in their first year. Also, its mainly been the rich or well-connected who get shares at their low initial prices. The rest of us end up buying later, often after prices have risen considerably. The Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group, for example, debuted on the market last month. Shares were initially priced at $68 apiece, but due to high demand, opened at $92.70, surging 38 percent on the first day. The shares have traded below that since. ***QWhat are trading curbs? B.S., Norwich, ConnecticutATrading curbs temporarily restrict all or some trading during periods of volatility. They have taken various forms over time. After the stock market crash of 1987, for example, which was partly blamed on computer-program trading (institutional investors making high-volume trades via computer), the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) instituted trading curbs on program trading. Those curbs were discontinued in 2007. Circuit breakers were a powerful kind of trading curb, halting trading entirely for an hour, two hours or the rest of the day whenever the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped, respectively, by 10 percent, 20 percent or 30 percent. New circuit-breaker rules for individual stocks as well as the overall market (now represented by the S&P 500 instead of the Dow) shut down trading for 15-minute intervals based on a drop of 7 percent or 13 percent, and for the rest of the day based on a drop of 20 percent. New limit up, limit down (LULD) breakers, meanwhile, will not stop trading entirely, but will restrict it within a defined band when triggered by volatility. Got a question for the Fool?

Limited inventory continues to be the story of the Naples area real estate market, according to the third quarter report released by the Naples Area Board of Realtors. Inventory of existing homes decreased 9 percent, from 4,080 homes available in the third quarter of 2013 to 3,702 homes in the third quarter of 2014. This tight inventory affected sales activity as demonstrated by a 10 percent decrease in pending sales, from 2,548 in third quarter 2013 to 2,304 pending sales in third quarter 2014; and an 11 percent decrease in closed sales, from 2,339 in third quarter 2013 to 2,093 closed sales in third quarter 2014. Contrary to the reduction of pending and closed sales, real estate agents across Collier County reported being very busy keeping up with the growing demand. This anomaly, as confirmed by a panel of brokers analyzing the NABOR market statistics, is likely a result of the market experiencing an influx of new home construction that, while not reported in the Southwest Florida MLS, has replenished the void resulting from a decreased inventory in the resale market. I dont think the market need has changed, says Steve Barker, advisingLimited inventory is a positive sign for the marketSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________SEE NABOR, B21 990 Aqua Circle, Aqualane ShoresCOURTESY PHOTOS

But the resale market is still desirable location continues to be a factor for many new home buyers, and the new construction market cant be everywhere. Pat Pitocchi, NABOR president and corporate trainer at Downing-Frye Realty, says the latest report shows a bigpicture view of how the local resale market is behaving in general. However, she adds, it does not report all new homes sales, which appears to be a considerable segment of the current market activity according to reports from local brokers. Wes Kunkle, a commercial broker at Kunkle Realty, points out that the 21 percent decrease in overall pending sales in the $300,000 and below market drove the overall 10 percent decrease. Overall pending sales in every price segment over $300,000 increased in the third quarter 2014, he says. Overall closed sales increased in two of the five price segments, $300,000 to $500,000 and $1 million to $2 million, as well. The NABOR third quarter 2014 report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the findings: Pending sales of single-family homes over $2 million increased 26 percent, from 43 in third quarter 2013 to 54 third quarter 2014. Pending sales of condominiums between $1 million and $2 million increased 29 percent, from 38 in third quarter 2013 to 49 in third quarter 2014. Overall closed sales in the $300,000 to $500,000 category increased 13 percent, 398 in third quarter 2013 to 451 in third quarter 2014. Overall closed sales in the $1 million to $2 million category increased 14 percent, from 91 in third quarter 2013 to 104 in third quarter 2014. Overall median closed price increased 13 percent, from $234,000 in third quarter 2013 to $265,000 in third quarter 2014. Overall median home price of homes over $300,000 decreased 7 percent, from $530,000 in third quarter 2013 to $493,000 in third quarter 2014. Overall inventory decreased 9 percent, from 4,080 homes in third quarter 2013 to 3,702 homes in third quarter 2014. Overall inventory of single family homes in the $300,000 to $500,000 market increased 15 percent, from 422 in third quarter 2013 to 487 in third quarter 2014. Although homes priced under $300,000 make up more than 60 percent of the market, This is not our entire market, says Kathy Zorn, broker/owner at Florida Home Realty. In fact, she adds, the third quarter report shows an increase in inventory of single-family homes in the combined price categories above $300,000, which accounts for 1,564 homes or 42 percent of the overall third quarter inventory.And in SeptemberNABOR also released its September 2014 market report, which reveals the following: Overall pending sales increased 2 percent, from 810 in September 2013 to 829 pending in September 2014. Overall closed sales decreased 3 percent, from 9,919 in the 12 months ending September 2013 to 9,585 closed sales in the 12 months ending September 2014. Overall median closed price increased 14 percent, from $230,000 in the 12 months ending September 2013 to $262,000 in the 12 months ending September 2014. Overall inventory decreased 9 percent, from 4,080 in September 2013 to 3,702 in September 2014. View the entire third quarter report and the September statistics at naplesarea.com.NABORFrom page 10 Vi (pronounced vee) at Bentley Village recently celebrated the opening of its new sales center. Part of a $70 million dollar redevelopment project, the 4,500-square-foot center emphasizes advanced technology to enhance prospective residents understanding of their living choices at the Continuing Care Retirement Community in North Naples. Sales counselors now utilize two Ideum tables with multi-touch displays and individual iPads to explain the amenities, apartment selections and other aspects of life at Bentley Village. With the tap of a finger, they can show clients the features of existing and future Bentley Village, including renderings of two new clubhouses, floor plans and three-dimensional images of current and new apartments. The center also has a design center that showcases the options available to customize apartments, a theater with seating for eight people and a putting green with sand trap. Naples-based Stofft & Cooney Architects and DeAngelis Diamond Construction collaborated to complete construction of the sales center. The Sales Center is the first visible sign of the significant investment we are making in the future of Bentley Village, Ann Walsh, executive director of Vi at Bentley Village, says. We are eager to move forward with the next phase of the redevelopment project and to continue enriching the environment we have provided for our residents to age well physically, emotionally and intellectually. The communitys redevelopment project also includes 72 new independent living apartments and two new clubhouses with three restaurants and a caf, a new theater, auditorium, library, lounge and arts and craft room. Both the clubhouses and 72 new apartments are scheduled already in place include an 18-hole executive golf course, 12 miles of walking trails and cart paths, and an array of outdoor features including swimming pools and tennis and bocce courts.

OCTOBER 28, 2014Youre Invited toA neck affair SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS What my new friend taught me about love and travel Heres a lonely experience: Boarding a double-decker tour bus before dawn in the pouring rain. By myself. Im in Paris now, staying in the city for five weeks, soaking up history and culture while wondering how French women get to be so beautiful. Ive eaten delicious meals, tasted very bitter coffee and decided that its a combination of good grooming and tolerance for uncomfortable shoes. But Paris, I think, is a city best enjoyed in love. To be here alone is a discomfiting experience. So last weekend I decided to leave town for the Loire Valley, one-time playground of the French nobility, a bucolic landscape dotted with castles and blessed with fine weather. To see the Loire, I did something I never do: I signed up for an organized tour. What can I say? The logistics were easy and, truthfully, I hoped to meet a friend. But as the bus slowly filled while outside it rained and rained, it occurred to me that I was the only one or almost the only one with an empty seat beside her. At the first castle, I followed the guide through the tiled halls, beneath stone archways and onto balconies that overlooked the river, admiring the sites but knowing that I was missing something crucial. When lunchtime arrived and the guide said we had an hour and a half on our own, I felt the particular panic that comes with knowing I would have to eat by myself. At just that moment, I saw another woman from the tour bus. She was the only other person, I had noticed earlier, on the tour alone. I am by nature shy, but in that instant I tossed aside my timidity. Excuse me, I said to the woman. Would you like to have lunch together? To my great joy and relief she said yes. We shared lunch in a quiet cafe, and when it was time to climb back on the bus she offered me the seat beside her. Suddenly, I had a friend for the trip. From there, the day grew progressively brighter. The clouds cleared and a vibrant sun shone down. The afternoon warmed as light poured over the valley and the mornings gloom vanished. My new friend and I toured the remaining castles together, and we rode beside each other on the three-hour trip back to Paris. At the end of the night, I was sad to see her go. What struck me as I took the Metro back to my apartment was how much she had enlivened the day. We were able to share the experience, to laugh over the romantic scandals at each castle, to compare those sites with other places wed visited. Sometimes, I realized, in our modern quest for independence, in our need to differentiate our lives, to set ourselves apart, we forget that the best and brightest moments come from being with other people. The beauty in this world in traveling, in seeing, in tasting rarely rises from the experience itself. It comes from being able to turn to the person next to us and say, Wasnt that great?

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 23-29, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYwould be for the biggest chicken to be right in the middle, cause if you scare that person, theyre going to jolt and it will ripple. The coaching continued: Dont forget the back of the line. Give them some action. Give em a scare, not the same scare, a fresh scare. Those end-of-theliners think theyve made it through your room, whisper in the last guys ear, something chilling, right before he turns the corner. If its a girl, blow her hair: Woo and disappear. Beware, there will be sprinters. Better a sprinter than a crawler. Youve got to move those crawlers out of your room before the next group comes in and clumps up, nothing scary about a conga line. Keep your vocal chords hydrated. You cant speak at a fever pitch every night, cause if you get laryngitis, you cant do your job. You cant shuffle alongside a group of teenage girls screaming their faces off and ask, Why are you here? You cant greet the horror-hungry with a hearty, Welcome to the New World Order, the Orwellianthemed haunt at Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach. No swearing. No touching. Those are the two rules of Fright Nights. But you can threaten them, Mr. McInnis tells his ghoulish enthusiasts, though he does not recommend a threatening scare to the face of Johnny Steroids, thats how you get a black eye or a fat lip, but those are the scares he loves the most the adult male thats the target, thats the reward, scaring the tough ones, the more tribal tattoos the better, bonus if hes wearing an Affliction T-shirt. Thats why these actors, these creative directors, these scary, little devils do it. They get paid peanuts and risk twisted ankles, but they are hooked on adrenaline, and if theyre not the ones feeling the rush, they want to be the fright, the startle, the stun to chill the spine, race the heart, raise the neck hairs. They believe people want to be scared to feel the relief of living through it. They study the science of the scare, so people can step into the nightmare of Halloween and escape it. To scare people, you have to get inside their heads. Mr. McInnis says it starts with the advertising. The grittier, the grimier, the more dangerous the haunts appear. The atmosphere must amplify the scare and arouse the senses the sound of chainsaws, the smell of rotting corpses, the sight of blood still shiny and wet. Designers employ the same handful of scares, reimagined. The direct scare, Muahaha! The distraction scare, lure you into feeling a sense of security, something comes from somewhere else and gets you. A blast of air, the animatronic scare. The scare of anticipation, hearing the screams of those that dared to tread before you, the suspense of wondering, What happened? Whats going to happen? Musing on the evolution of fright, Mr. McInnis fears the subtlety has fallen away. His creative process starts with his notebook. Its pages show his brain. He always has it near to sketch some character, scribble some dialogue. He weaves subtlety into his designs. He likes you to have 30 seconds alone so you can be scared by your own head. Its amazing where your brain can go in 30 seconds, similar to what Mr. McInniss brain can do with a blank sheet of paper. Pondering the popularity of fright, Mr. McInnis says, Escapism is a necessity. Life sometimes gets too serious, too mundane and definitely too vanilla. We need to mix it up.The doctors will see you nowTo escape the anxieties of real life, sometimes you need a vicarious scare, to fear for another. Doc Swan, Psycho Sideshow entertainer, does things with fire, swords and icepicks that people peek through their fingers to see. Im not much of a destiny kind of guy. Im not much of an everything happens for a reason kind of guy, Doc Swan says. But over the years, Ive convinced myself that Im on the planet to do two or three things to make people laugh, to make people applaud, to make people squirm. Having shivered crowds at Six Flags and Walt Disney World, he now performs in the Field of Screams Village at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, a new Halloween event also featuring a haunted hayride, designed by Doc Swan. As a boy, he would string spiders behind cupboards or place dolls on rockers to scare his mother out of her skin. Back then, he sometimes felt guilty for scaring others. He would apologize. Thats such a foreign thought to him now, he cant imagine feeling guilty for scaring people. As he came of age, he accepted his fervor for the fiendish. Told himself, My ideas really do scare people, and thats a good thing, because thats what I want to do, and people like being scared. As hes talking, a zombie commercial comes on his TV, as if to prove his point. Im a human being just like everybody else, Doc Swan says. I love ice cream, I love Christmas, I love picnics and I love to get scared. Whether its a roller-coaster drop or a zombie-charged hayride, Doc Swan says people want to clutch their hearts to feel their hearts. They want to be scared to feel the relief of living through it. Sounds good to me, says Peter Karl Jonason, Ph.D. Earning his Ph.D. in psychology, Dr. Jonason has taught social psychology and evolutionary psychology at universities in Florida and Alabama. He now lectures on personality or individual differences at the University of Western Sydney in Australia. He was awarded the 2014 Ig Nobel award in psychology for his research into the darkside of human nature. Expanding on the psychological validity of seeking out a scare to survive it, he writes, The relief we feel is related to the relief one feels that their life is not going to end. This is all part of the fight-flight and resolution response. Fear activates these systems to get us ready to run, fight or flee. He describes fear as a psychological system evolved to alert us to dangers, individuals not sensitive to fear, would have been selected from the species. Though some may want to pontificate on what the spread of haunted attractions says about todays society or communal mindset, Dr. Jonason boils it down to fun. We have become a culture of entertainment. The proliferation of movie theaters, amusement parks, haunted houses are all manifestations of the prioritization of fun as a social value, he writes. Our grandparents just got up, went to work and lived on. It is the modern generations that institutional enjoyment has taken over. This might very well be part of the increasingly narcissistic population that characterizes western, and American in particular, culture. That is, it is not about communalism at all. It is about enjoyment. There you have it, the why behind the scare, the critter behind the trapdoor: Joy. SCAREFrom page 1Michael Aiello has been brewing up fear as the creative director of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Orlando for more than a decade. Here, he spills his guts. How do you scare the bejesus out of someone? We try to engage as many senses as possible. With sight, we want to immerse the guests in an environment that feels real Sound is also huge. When the event first started, performers would hold tin cans filled with nuts and bolts, and they would shake them at the guests when they popped out. Nowadays, were able to employ a lot of technology. Many of our scharacters have triggers theyre able to push an audio stinger or a lighting effect, so we can strobe the area or possibly blind the guests to disorient them further Touch... well put fabrics or freezer panels in the guests path. We really like smells whether its a rotting underbrush, foliage kind of smell if its a forest were putting you into, or a rotting meat smell if youre entering a dark and dank butcher shop. Has the fact that you like to scare people, ever scared you? No, it hasnt, actually, no. I think because I love people, one of the best things that we tend to do the first weekend of the event, well pick a couple of mazes where well just stand outside the exit of the maze and listen to the guests coming out, some screaming, some laughing, some commenting on the set design. I think its really cool that there are events that can drop you into a place and time that you would never willingly put yourself in beyond the confines of this theme park. People enjoy that about it. So no, it doesnt scare me that we like to scare people a lot of us take it as a privilege that were able to. What scares you? Deadlines. What does the expansion of more and more haunted attractions say to you about our society, our mindset? I think its interesting that Halloween as a holiday has kind of escaped the shackle that its only kids trick or treating its really grown ... I think its on par with Christmas now, as far as the business behind Halloween As far as society, theres an escape there, its escapism. Why do people dress up? Why do we like wearing costumes? I think its because for one night a year we can escape who we are and what we look like and present something different and unique and horrifying and/or beautiful.

ARTS COMMENTARYTrue to form, Ringling International Arts Festival surprises and delights You might not know exactly what youre going to see when you go to the Ringling International Arts Festival (RIAF) in Sar asota, but one thing is certain: What you see will be cuttingedge, exciting and unlike anything else you see around Southwest Florida. RIAF is a collection of theater, modern dance, music and mixed media from New York and other major cities around the world, and I always look forward to it with great anticipation. This year I caught four of the festivals seven shows. Heres my round-up of artistic wonderfulness:Moses supposesIn The Table, presented by Londons Blind Summit Theatre, were given a simple wooden table on a stage, and a cardboard-headed puppet who lives upon it. (The Blind Summit Theatres puppetry was seen in the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in London.) Hes operated by three people dressed in black: Mark Down, Sean Garrett and Laura Caldrow but after a few minutes, its almost as if they dont even exist. The puppet addresses the audience directly, telling us were going to see Extreme epic biblical puppetry on a table and explaining that hes made in the style of Japanese Bunraku puppetry, which means no strings, no hands up a body. Amazingly, this little creature made of cardboard, cloth and plastic comes to life for us, with a personality all his own. So much so that at one point, when the puppeteers lay him down on his side on the table and quietly step aside, you believe he is only sleeping. Such is the skill of this trio, and the intelligence and cleverness of the script (which is also highly improvised upon), that when the puppet speaks to his handlers or even explains how he works, you still believe hes real. He talks of being asked to portray Moses in his last hours for a Jewish community center in London and re-enacts a dialogue between Moses and God during Mosess last hours. Throughout the 70-minute show, he even name-checks people such as Sandra Bullock, Madonna and Tom Cruise and throws in a reference to Law & Order and Mission Impossible. Im a puppet on a table. Thats it, Moses declares. But he is so much more than that. The Table is a witty and insightful commentary on the nature of existence, self-awareness and mortality. Afterwards, Moses and the puppeteers greeted people in the lobby, and many had their photos taken with him. It was interesting to note most people addressed Moses directly, not the puppeteers.Sludgey radio dramaThe Intergalactic Nemesis, Book One: Target Earth is promoted as being a live-action graphic novel. It combines old-time radio drama with 1,250 projected comic book images (by Tim Doyle), accompanied by a pianist/organist (Harlan Hodges) and a Foley artist (Cami Alys) making sound effects. Three actors (Rachel Landon, Brock England and Jeffery Mills) portray dozens of characters. Id really been looking forward to this show. But somehow, the experience didnt live up to my expectations. The actors were incredible. (Mr. Mills plays both the villains and the heroes, which is as broad a range as you can get.) I found myself most entertained by the actors and the Foley artist, whose sound effects were highly creative and surprising. But the story itself isnt as solid as it could be, or as campy. And I wish the graphic images had been stronger. The most effective ones showed robots or planets or spaceships; Mr. Doyles people paled next to the real deal: the actors themselves. I love sci-fi and graphic novels, but this left me feeling disappointed. (And some who left at intermission didnt return.) The show would have been much stronger in its original form a radio play performed onstage minus the projected graphics. The actors could easily have carried the show. The images they created in my head along with the music and sound effects were much more interesting than what the artist had drawn. I loved the idea of a sludge-based alien life form, but the graphics of these monsters werent half as scary as the ones in my imagination.Mathematical jazzThe highly propulsive, rhythmic jazz of the Vijay Iyer Trio, with Vijay Iyer (piano), Stephan Crump (stand-up bass) and Marcus Gilmore (drums), is the musical equivalent of an abstract action painting. Its a swirl of complexity, a jazz language all its own. Mr. Iyer introduced himself simply: My name is Vijay Iyer. I play piano. And the trio proceeded to play for 40 minutes straight, without stopping between songs. The tunes included Wildflower and Lude. When they finally paused for a breath, Mr. Iyer introduced what theyd just played and, true to his non-linear thinking, introduced the most recent first, then a couple after that, then jumped to the tune theyd opened with, and named the ones after that. The Grammy-nominated pianist/ composer was named DownBeat Magazines 2014 Pianist of the Year. Hes also a 2013 MacArthur Fellow and a 2012 Doris Duke Performing Artist, just to mention only a few of his honors. At times all three seemed to be in their own individual musical worlds, intertwining. The tunes were like complex algebraic equations that were somehow all solved in the end. They closed the show with Duke Ellingtons The Village of the Virgins.Mattress dancingThe performance by modern dance troupe Keigwin + Company was perhaps the most exhilarating show of this years RIAF. Fresh, original and witty, the performance opened with Mattress Suite, a series of four dances, all involving a mattress and dancers in their underwear. (Dance Magazine calls it Larry Keigwins signature work that Unofficially launched Keigwin + Co into the big leagues.) Straight Duet featured Ashley Browne and Matthew Baker as a couple fighting, loving, snubbing, pursuing, miscommunicating. Each had a solo dance as well, Sunshine for Mr. Baker and At Last for Ms. Browne. Perhaps the most humorous of the quartet was Three Ways, a dance for the companys three males (Mr. Baker, along with Brandon Cournay and Kile Hotchkiss.) The three tumbled and jostled and paired off together until, at the end, one regretfully got up and put his clothes on and left, leaving the other two behind on the mattress. Contact Sport, originally performed with four men, was performed with the three men and Jaclyn Walsh. Set to four songs sung by Eartha Kitt, it was joyous sibling-like rough housing. Love Songs was set to music by Roy Orbison, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone. The stand-out was a sultry and sassy dance to Ms. Franklins I Never Loved a Man (The Way That I Love You), by Ms. Walsh and Mr. Baker, a perfect marriage of music and movement. What I appreciate about Mr. Keigwins choreography is that when his dances are set to songs that have lyrics, rather than having his dancers explicitly act out the lyrics, he has them act out the emotions, giving us a much richer experience. The much-too-short performance ended with Triptych, set to the electronic music of Jonathan Melville Pratt. The six dancers were human semaphores, constantly waving, motioning: I am here. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOThe Intergalactic Nemesis

CONTRACT BRIDGECard readingBY STEVE BECKERThis deal occurred in the Life Master Pairs at the 1992 Summer North American Championships. It features an unusual play by one declarer, who succeeded where many others in the same contract failed. South arrived at four spades as shown, and West led the K-J of diamonds. Declarer played low from dummy on the second diamond, but East overtook the jack with the ace and continued with a third diamond, bringing South to the critical point of the play. Given the bidding and play thus far, it was clear that West had started with only two diamonds. If declarer discarded on dummys established diamond queen, or if he ruffed low, he was virtually certain to lose the trick to a low trump in Wests hand. This was an acceptable loss if West had started with three spades to the king, since a subsequent spade finesse would allow declarer to pick up the rest of the suit. But if East started with the spade king, discarding or ruffing low at trick three would ultimately lead to defeat. The question, therefore, was who had the spade king? Based on Easts overcall and the fact that West had already turned up with the K-J of diamonds, South decided East was far more likely to have the king of spades. Accordingly, he ruffed the third diamond with the jack. After this held, he led a spade to the ace, disdaining the finesse, and returned the spade four. East won with the king, but no matter what he returned, dummys queen of spades would sooner or later capture Wests ten, and the contract was home.

Rated R.Gone Girl (Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris) Nick Dunne (Mr. Affleck) looks increasingly suspicious after his wife (Ms. Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. Fantastic performances and precise directing from David Fincher (The Social Network) make this one of the best of 2014. Rated R.Hector and the Search for Happiness (Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette) Bored British psychiatrist Hector (Mr. Pegg) travels the world investigating what makes people happy. Its an impossible question to answer, but this earnest comedy provides just enough laughs. Rated R.The Hero of Color City (Voices of Christina Ricci, Owen Wilson, Sean Astin) Crayons come alive after their owner goes to sleep, but calamity strikes and Yellow (Ms. Ricci) has to lead the other colors before they fade away. Its strictly for little kids, and Im not even sure if theyll enjoy 77 minutes of this. Worse, its torture for parents. Rated G.A Walk Among the Tombstones (Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens, David Harbour) An unlicensed private eye (Mr. Neeson) helps a drug lord (Mr, Stevens) find the men who murdered the drug lords wife. While its always fun to watch Mr. Neeson as a badass, the story is unfocused and lacks surprises. Rated R.The Trip to Italy (Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Rosie Fellner) In this sequel to The Trip (2010), friends Mr. Coogan and Mr. Brydon play a version of themselves as they tour fine eateries in Italy. Its more consistently funny than the original, and the beautiful Italian landscape is nearly worth the price of admission alone. Not Rated (strong language). Tusk (Justin Long, Michael Parks, Genesis Rodriguez) An arrogant podcaster (Mr. Long) is taken captive and tortured by a madman in the Canadian woods. Writer/ director Kevin Smiths (Clerks) film is incredibly bizarre and not always in a good way. Its funny, horrific, unwatchable and yet unforgettable. It is an odd experience that I have to recommend based on the fact that I cant get it out of my mind. Rated R.

YesFury treads in places war movies rarely find success, and it does so with captivating force. Writer/director David Ayer (End of Watch) strikes a clean balance between the brutality of battle and the humanity of war, and the result is a stellar film that reminds us of the mental toll war takes on its combatants. Its April 1945 in Germany. The war isnt over yet, but the Germans know the end is close, meaning theyre more reckless than ever in their attacks on American troops. Leading the five-man Sherman tank nicknamed Fury is Wardaddy (Brad Pitt), who early on tells nave and innocent Norman (Logan Lerman) to kill an imprisoned SS officer. Norman has never killed anyone, and he doesnt intend to start. Its not right, he says, sticking to his morals as if he has a choice. Were not here for right and wrong, Wardaddy barks, giving Norman a rough education on the reality of war. Its a fascinating moral dilemma other war films gloss over: Does Norman have to abandon his values to survive in war? Is Wardaddy or the SS officer the bigger monster? Doesnt Wardaddy have to make sure Norman can kill in order to protect the rest of the squad, which is depending on Wardaddy to keep them alive? Fury certainly isnt the first movie to address these themes, but its one of the few to successfully make an emotional impact and then seamlessly move back to battlefield violence. Joining them in the tank, where war names are commonplace, are Bible (Shia LaBeouf), Gordo (Michael Pena) and Coon-Ass (Jon Bernthal). They, along with Wardaddy, have accepted murder as part of their duty and are numb to it. This is what makes Norman so interesting hes an innocent who doesnt belong in war, like so many before him whove gone to battle and had to do what they always thought was unthinkable: kill another human being. Normans transition and the nickname he earns is one of the most devastating character arcs in quite some time, and Mr. Lerman is fantastic in the role. Ideals are peaceful, history is violent, Wardaddy says. So is the movie. Its no worse than Saving Private Ryan and other R-rated war films, but the action is intense and harsh. The story takes place over 24 hours. The cold muck, overcast skies and plethora of corpses cast an ambiance of gloom over the proceedings. Additionally, the battle scenes, which are masterfully done, provide only the relief of survival, not happy endings. Grasps at humanity from all members of the squad are always desperate, never feasible. Of all the places in the world to be throughout history, this is toward the bottom of the list. Your eyes see it, but your head cant make no sense of it, Gordo says of the horrors of war. Indeed, we come to realize that Fury isnt just the name of the tank (or movie), its also the state of mind needed to defeat an enemy that will kill you without hesitation.

C20 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 23-29, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYsimply a way to pass time between the school bell and Snapchat. These kids are serious, Ms. Oliver, who directs the show, says. Musical theater is their passion Theres a level of excellence in our shows that draws the best of the best.Nuturing aspiring starsMs. Oliver opened her Naples Performing Arts Center in May 2011 after noticing the struggle other families had coordinating their childrens lessons and rehearsals at several different facilities one for dance, another for acting and a third for voice and music in many cases. As an artist herself, opening up a run-of-the-mill studio didnt appeal to her. I didnt want to be just another place where kids come in in herds. I wanted it to be a place where kids could grow up, she says. By modeling her small studio on Juilliard, with all of the performing arts under one roof, Ms. Oliver has created an incubator for the areas aspiring stars. Her actors won first place two years in a row in Atlantas Junior Theater Festival, an annual competition that attracts groups from all around the country. This year, Ms. Oliver decided to forgo the competition in favor of bringing workshops by Young Performers of America to her Naples center. Young Performers of America approached her after the studios wins in Atlanta. As a participant in the program, the center will host three current Broadway and television stars for a series of workshops and critiques when Grease! concludes. Students will acquire in-depth instruction in acting, music and dance from highly esteemed and recognized performers. The course concludes with a panel critique of small group performances. Engaging with performers who are currently in hit shows is critical to her students development, Ms. Oliver says. You cant just be good, she continues. You have to make it your craft and your passion. (With) these people who have arrived and done all that, the kids can say I really want to do that or they can say I dont really have it in me.Rehearsals and critiquesOnce the base line to Born to Hand Jive starts thumping, the free-floating enthusiasm that hung in the air moments before focuses into a chorus of rhythm and youthful exuberance. After the first run-through, the actors are subjected to a critique by dance instructor Christopher Dean, a Broadway veteran and longtime choreographer of the Rockettes. The energys easier to believe more and more, he tells his students. Its coming along. Just dont let it sag. He quickly follows with a reminder that as professionals, everyone should arrive to rehearsal ready to work. The cast of Grease! 40-plus kids has been rehearsing with Mr. Dean, Ms. Oliver and musical directors Heather Aretekis and Phil MacMillan since early September. Though rehearsal is only twice a week, several cast members also come to the center for a variety of lessons during the week. Daniel Rosales, who has dual roles in Grease! as a T-Bird (the gang that rules Rydell High) and a Frankie Avalon-type crooner called Teen Angel, fills his after-school hours with singing and action lessons as well as rehearsals for Aladdin (involving the centers youngest students). Daniel has already nailed the Broadway voice necessary to project over the top of amplified back-up music to the audience. Last summer, at 12 years old, he was chosen to participate in a workshop in New York City for Lion King JR. He played young Simba and can be seen in the choreography videos the show distributes to licensed productions. It was the best experience of my life, he said.A platform for talentA number of families travel from all around Southwest Florida to take advantage of the quality instruction and productions offered at the Naples Performing Arts Center. Sara Brady drives daughter Lexi, 13, from Cape Coral twice a week for Grease! rehearsals and also regularly makes the trip to Miami for auditions, casting calls, workshops and lessons. She estimates she spends about nine hours a week in driving time to Naples and a total of 20 per week getting Lexi to and from her performance commitments. With the familys two oldest children soon leaving home, the Bradys are preparing to move to South Fort Myers, at which point theyll consolidate Lexis singing, dancing and acting lessons at NPAC. Its been tough not having a center that made training in all three disciplines available, Ms. Brady says. For kids to become a triple threat, you have to do all three regularly, she says. And for parents, its hard. I think what Lori has done is great. Shes given a platform to the kids to come to one place and do all of it.

CHANGES FUTURE FOR HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATESFUTUREMAKERS COALITIONA special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | FALL 2014 INSIDE: FutureMakers Participants 2 School-by-school FAFSA Completion 3 The Financial Challenge 4 our GIVING MATTERS IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO? I WAS ASKED THIS recently about our work in the Southwest Florida region. The SWFL Community Foundation, once strictly a granting organization, has evolved to that of a convener, leader and change maker. And its working! Last year we reviewed research of community needs and chose a challenge and an opportunity. We invited others in our community to explore this issue with us and together we decided to do something about it access to education or training after high school. We created an initiative and named it FutureMakers which focused on graduating high school seniors in our five-county area, the future of our region. We invited partners in each county, including The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, Big Brother Big Sisters of Sun Coast (Charlotte County), Career Source (Hendry and Glades counties), and The Education Foundation of Collier County Champions for Learning to work with us and together we designed and executed a program to increase the number of students accessing federal aid, Pell grants and scholarships. And, we had a hunch if we worked together, others would notice. They did. Lumina Foundation, a national education foundation, invited us to be a longterm partner which will bring new funding and expert resources to our community. We invited others to help us shape the partnership a diverse group of educators, business people, philanthropists, nonprofit and government leaders. Lumina believes in our region and its future because we are working together. We are now launching a multi-year initiative with Lumina and scores of regional leaders, agencies and institutions that will focus on post-secondary access and attainment. But thats not all. Others saw what we were doing and wanted to partner as well. This year the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy invited us to develop a family literacy program and the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation tapped us to help them with their funding in Southwest Florida which will infuse more than $250,000 in new dollars into our region. This is in addition to all the amazing work being done every single day by the nonprofits the Southwest Florida Community Foundation is funding and working to support throughout the year, thanks to our generous donors. It works, when we work together O C OWEN SarahPresident & CEO, Southwest Florida Community Foundation Better TogetherSEE LUMINA, 2 DURING THE PAST YEAR, THE WORK OF FutureMakers in the Southwest Florida region has gotten the attention of Lumina Foundation. An independent, private foundation with $770 million in endowment, Lumina is committed to increasing the proportion of Americans with highquality degrees, certificates and other credentials to 60 percent by 2025. As the coordinator for regional participation, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and its FutureMakers participants (who are recognized in this report) will benefit from Luminas collaborative approach that connects us to renowned national thought-leadership organizations and provides technical and planning assistance, data tools and flexible funding as we customize our attainment goals and plans. The graduating class of 2014 is just getting settled into their first year out of high school, parents college weekends events are over and transition has officially begun. A year ago, recent Southwest Florida high school graduates Niannia, Christine and twins Fritz and Fritzlene thought theyd be standing on the sidelines watching friends gleefully buying a bungee chair for the dorm room, attending sports events, and figuring out schedules for their biggest life-changing milestone. But thanks to the regional FutureMakers coalition, these newly minted grads have joined the ranks of the college class of 2018 or are attaining postsecondary technical training after securing financial aid and receiving college and career prep from caring mentors. For Niannia, shes spent the months since high school getting acclimated to college life at Florida State University. Others in her high school class are have furnished their dorm rooms, purchased course books and are immersed in the life of academia thanks to federal grants and financial aid that are making the dream of a postsecondary degree attainable for more local students. Were the first generation going to college and being successful, said Fritzlene, a smile broadening across her pretty face as she and twin brother Fritz talk about their next step after high school. That makes my mom really, really proud. Shes attending Florida SouthWestern State College (formerly Edison); hes traveling to Trinity College of Florida in Tampa. O CA REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY_________________________________Lumina Foundation Spotlights Southwest FloridaStudents take their next big stepResearch shows a direct correlation between thriving cities and education beyond high school. Increased attainment delivers stronger local economies, greater individual earning power and better quality of life. Every community in America wants that, and weve designed this work to give civic leaders the tools they need to be successful.

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | FALL 2014 2 | o u r Our Approach: The Birth of FutureMakers The Southwest Florida Community Foundation convened our first Regional Call to Action, assembling school officials, mentors, financial contributors and other stakeholders to discuss solutions. FutureMakers was born in 2013 with the mission of getting students in eight selected local high schools engaged and excited about college and career training. Regional schools were selected based on the low percentage of seniors filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid in recent years. Education and community organizations in each county assisted the FutureMakers coalition in providing one-on-one and group mentoring, FAFSA workshops, financial-aid application support and career coaching.This is not a sprint. We are just beginning our journey as a region committed to increasing college attendance and graduation. It will take all of us and the collective will of this community to achieve our goals. In just a year, the work of FutureMakers has been recognized by Lumina Foundation, with the inclusion of the Southwest Florida region in its community-based postsecondary education attainment strategy. The strategy was designed to help communities and regions dramatically increase the number of local residents with postsecondary credentials. We have always believed that when our region works together to solve a problem, we can achieve great results, said Sarah Owen, Southwest Florida Community Foundation president and CEO. Our great team of partners working together has produced some positive short-term results. We are so pleased that this spirit of collaboration will now be both resourced and supported by Lumina and a broader group of stakeholders in our region. As our coalition around college and certification attainment grows, individual students and our region as a whole will reap the benefits Lumina plans to invest approximately $5.6 million in its newest 35 partners and more than $13 million directly to communities during the program. We will work with Lumina through 2016 to establish attainment goals best suited for our communities. Research shows a direct correlation between thriving cities and education beyond high school, said Jamie Merisotis, president and CEO, Lumina Foundation. Increased attainment delivers stronger local economies, greater individual earning power and better quality of life. Every community in America wants that, and weve designed this work to give civic leaders the tools they need to be successful, O CParticipants:These FutureMakers participants demonstrate a strong sense of community and collaboration by helping the Southwest Florida Community Foundation craft the charter that will be the framework for the next two years of work in the region with Lumina Foundation.

FALL 2014 | | A special supplement produced b y the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | 3 o u r WE LAUNCHED FUTUREMAKERS WITH optimism and realism, knowing a program of this magnitude requires baby steps before it can take off running. According to Florida College Access Network data as of June 20, 2014, five schools improved their Free Application for Federal Student Aid completion rates and four were above the states declining 31.18 percent (see graph below). East Lee recorded the biggest increase at 11.1 percent. Cypress Lake, where Fritz and Fritzlene attended high school, had the highest FAFSA completion rate with 44.6 students completing the form as of June 20. There are many challenges affecting FAFSA completion throughout the state, one of them attributable to the state no longer requiring the application to qualify for Floridas Bright Futures Scholarship program.

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | FALL 2014 4 | our A smartphone app providing students with relevant content proved an ideal format to reach graduating seniors. Development of our GradApp by Naples MassiveU was funded by a grant from Wells Fargo and promoted by local hero Sherwood Brown, former shooting guard for Florida Gulf Coast Universitys NCAA Sweet 16 mens basketball team. The mobile application provides comprehensive information about career opportunities, skills and education requirements for a variety of careers, links to jobs, educationplanning resources, available scholarships and financial aid, money management and more. I wanted to give back to the community that has been so good to me. All the information graduating seniors need is in one place with the GradApp. Its a great help to parents, and Im really excited to be a part of it, said Mr. Brown.One day we will collectively look back and know weve solved a big problem together. Mostly our success will be told in the eyes and stories of students who are now on their way to college.

For a list of our trustees, go to our website at www.floridacommunity.com Copyright The Florida College Access Network got the attention of the Southwest Florida Community Foundations Initiatives team when it reported more than $100 million in Pell Grants free money for college went unclaimed by Floridas class of 2012 because graduates didnt know the funding existed. Students also were not aware that filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, known as FAFSA, would determine how much grant funding and financial assistance they could receive for postsecondary training and college. Completing the FAFSA determines eligibility for all financial aid and student loans plus state programs. Less than one-third of high-school seniors in our five-county area fill out the FAFSA, said Sarah Owen, president and CEO, Southwest Florida Community Foundation. Understanding what type of financial aid is available and how much they may qualify for can make the difference between going to college or not. The government provides more than $150 billion in federal aid, grants, work study funds and financial assistance for students pursuing masters and bachelors degrees or technical training certificates. A lot of students and parents dont realize there is federal and state money out there for college, said Troy Miller, senior researcher and policy analyst for FCAN, a statewide organization dedicated to strengthening and supporting communities efforts to improve college and career preparation and access. FAFSA completion does lead to enrollment. On average, the form takes fewer than 30 minutes to fill out, which is less time most students spend completing an actual college application. We at the Southwest Florida Community Foundation already knew some of the areas talented and brightest students were forgoing postsecondary educations because of the expense. But we were shocked that so much money was left behind and so few high school graduates were completing the form. A high-school diploma is simply not enough today for many Floridians to qualify for well-paying jobs, said FCAN Executive Director Laurie Meggesin. Communities, like Southwest Florida, can work together to close the achievement gap and in the process, raise the quality of life for their residents as a whole. Obtaining a college or technical school degree is important in todays global economy. By 2020, 60 percent of Florida jobs will require a postsecondary degree or certificate. Currently only 38 percent of working-age Floridians have earned a twoor four-year degree, according to FCANs analysis of national and state education data. We made a commitment this year to walk alongside high school seniors and work with a team across Southwest Florida to expose them to resources for college and career planning, financial aid and scholarships, said Mrs. Owen.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 23-29, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C25 FLORIDA WRITERSGood things come in threes from Southwest Florida writers D.A.S.P.O. by Ronald B. Fenster and Jerold A. Greenfield. Creative Products International. 360 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95. I Know What My Cat Is Thinking by Dorothy Seymour Mills. Barrington Publishing. 24 pages. $12.95. Steve Cantons Tributes, Memories & Observations of the Sweet Science. SJC Boxing. 370 pages. Trade paperback, $29. Here are three new titles by Southwest Florida writers. One, two or all three of them are books that may appeal to your reading pleasure or your giftgiving needs. The first D.A.S.P.O. carries the subtitle An Unhinged Novel of Vietnam. While there have been plenty of those, I havent come across any new ones for quite a while. The initials in the title stand for Department of the Army Special Photographic Office. The primary mission of this offices Pacific Detachment was to document U.S. Army activities in South Vietnam. Though there is some continuity to the story, its more of whats called an episodic novel in which scenes and chapters are relatively self-contained. The unity comes from tone, theme and setting. These guys live high on the hog, find ways of getting in trouble and manage to benefit from the thriving drug trade. They are noncombatants who are constantly in combat zones, allowed to operate outside the local chain of command. Anyone who likes the whacky side of war fiction think M.A.S.H. and Catch-22 will enjoy this hilarious send-up, which is based on author Ron Fensters experiences.Feline mind readingPet lovers often have strong relationships, even psychic connections, with their beloved animals. Dorothy Mills, whose book should not be mistaken for a kind of childrens book it physically resembles, has fun with the idea of a cat owner reading her pets mind. Thus, its the perfect book for cat lovers. I Know What My Cat Is Thinking contains a series of cute cat photographs captioned by the cats usually disdainful thoughts. Ms. Mills knows that cats have a sense of independence and superiority thats manifested in their facial expressions and body language. She just translates that communication into words. Since this particular cat is owned by an aspiring writer, however, the book is simultaneously about writers insecurities as the cats thoughts somewhat cruelly undermine the owner/writers confidence. Essentially, the cat is an unsympathetic critic. Short and funny, the book reprises Ms. Mills relationship with feline Toto when the prolific and accomplished author was between husbands and far from established in her writing career. A dance around the ringSteve Cantons book is a fascinating compendium of boxing lore that grows out of Mr. Cantons insider experience as cut man, trainer, broadcaster, journalist and owner of the SJC Boxing Gym in Fort Myers. Its a treasure trove of information for the boxing aficionado and a delight for anyone who enjoys colorful sports anecdotes. Individual boxers, both well known and less known, are profiled. Just as often, a turning point match gets enshrined in Mr. Cantors sturdy, vivid prose. The book covers not only accomplishments within the ring, but also whatever is notable about a pugilists pathway through life. The authors lengthy tribute to Emanuel Steward is an example of such a full-length portrait, in this case of a significant trainer. Mr. Canton treats his subjects in their full humanity, not just their fisticuff prowess. A special highlight of this book is the generous inclusion of more than 500 photographs that help bring the stories to life. This book would probably be more successful if it were more effectively organized and more attractively designed. Like many self-published products, it lacks a certain polish. The glorious and flavorful material along with Mr. Cantons experience, knowledge, and passion allows the book to survive these handicaps. It will no doubt find a worthy trade publisher and the present edition will become a collectors item. So get yours now. Its likely to be a good investment. Order it from the website SJCboxing.com.

The freezing water in the dead of night shocked him. He could hardly move. Looking around, he couldnt see the boat. It belonged to the ocean now. The clouds covered most of the stars. He swam as hard as he could, he didnt know where, but his clothes weighed him in place. Lightning briefly illuminated the sky. He saw the waves, taller than any mountain barreling his way. The waves sucked him in, slammed him into the water and held him down. Pulling and smashing him over and over without respite. He gasped for air, each breath only bringing a mouthful of salt water that burned his gut. The man came to a sole belief: Im going to die, His strength had evaporated as another wave threw him deeper down into the ocean. He struggled one last time to the surface, bracing for the impact of the next wave, but there was none. The water had calmed. He floated on his back, conserving his energy, too tired to cry. Minutes later the waves came back stronger than ever and again the man was thrown deep into the icy water. But it stopped again. Each grouping of waves became weaker and more spread out, giving him time to conserve his strength. Eventually, the waves were so small that he could continue to float above them. Day broke, and a glimpse of the sun began to appear on the horizon and with it, the sight of a shore. It was low tide. There caked in mud was the boat, run into a sand bar just off shore. He rose, legs buckling with every step. The man walked past the beaten vessel, stroking the bow with the tips of his fingers, his eyes never losing sight of land. A new belief rang in his mind: Im going to live. Cut Man By Lyn Millner, Fort Myers As soon as the Naples Philharmonic season ended, Diane quit and went to carpentry school. She had been a bassoonist for seven years, when an accident changed her mind. She was riding in a car with her friend Thor Himmelfarb, principal trumpet, when they were hit head-on. She called 911 and stayed with him in the car; he squeezed her hand and looked at her with his eyes wild, his breath rapid, his chest rising unevenly, and his nostrils aring. The paramedics stuck a large needle in Thors chest, and she heard a whoosh of air that would save his life from the wreck that took his career. Months later, as Thor recovered, she could still hear the sound of his gasping and gurgling and wheezing. Anyone who depends on wind for a livelihood couldnt forget. Everything reminded her of it. A potato hissing in the microwave. The sound of a drain sucking water from a sink. Her first carpentry job was on Fort Myers Beach, building decks for seven attached clapboard condos. The place was well built but made to look shabby, painted in a trio of pastelspink, pale blue and mintlike summer gelato flavors at Norman Love. A dilapidated rowboat sat on the beach in sight of the condos. Diane wouldnt be surprised if it was a prop, given how precious the place looked. The boat certainly wasnt seaworthy, the wood was in terrible shape, and two planks were splitting away from the bow. Her job was to measure the space where the decking would go, call down the measurements to Billy, the cut man, who sawed the boards and handed them up to her. Then she tacked the boards to the joists. Calhoun, the owner, worked ahead of them, building the frame. Diane didnt like him much. He nicknamed her HGTV and was always telling her to hurry. On the first day, Billy showed her pictures of his wife and four children. He told her he found Jesus in prison, where he served time for growing thousands of marijuana plants. Since he got out three years ago, he had worked for Calhoun as a carpenters apprentice. She and Billy had lunch every day sitting in the boat, which faced the condos. Billy liked it that way. He could look at the deck work from a distance. Diane would have preferred for the boat to face the water, but she didnt know Billy well enough to tell him why. The lapping waves behind them made her uneasy, like water was reaching for them, about to seep into the hull. Diane quizzed Billy about how to build a deck. She wanted to know the process, but all of the major work on the project had been done before she got theredesigning the deck, digging the footings, setting the posts and hanging the ledger board. Im just the cut man, Billy said. But youre a carpenters apprentice. That doesnt mean anything. She didnt know how to ask her next question because she didnt want to offend him. Two gulls strutted up to the boat, checking them out, waiting for crumbs. So its possible to work for a deck guy for three years as a carpenters apprentice and never do a whole deck? Oh, its more than possible, Billy said. That is exactly how it works. How does that not make you crazy? He shrugged. At least Im working. She changed the subject. Maybe one day, she said, we could turn this boat so it faces the water. And move it inland a bit so it doesnt get wet. That would be all right, he said. And maybe, she thought to herself, we could restore it, though she knew from carpentry school that the wood was too far gone. Or she could sand it and glue things on it, encrust it with seashells and beach glass and star sh and it would be a glittering prop for the condos, as opposed to something doomed, waiting for the tide to dismantle it. The next day, she and Billy did turn the boat to face the water. The following day, he showed up with a gift for her. It was unwieldy and tall and wrapped in newspaper. She took it curiously and tore into it. A pair of oars. But not just any oars. Handmade. From ash. With at blades and tapered shafts. They were astonishingly light. You made these, she said, but it wasnt a question, more an expression of amazement. Billy beamed. They climbed into the boat and faced each other, and she couldnt stop smiling. Couldnt stop looking at them and running her hands over them. Then she held them the way oars were supposed to be held, gripping the handles and pointing the blades out over the ground. And she rowed, sweeping the ground lightly, making neat arcs in the sand. WRITING CHALLENGE

KOVEL: ANTIQUES Halloween collectibles scare up high asking prices BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELHalloween is the second most popular holiday among collectors of holiday memorabilia (Christmas comes first). There are even mail-order catalogs and pop-up stores that feature nothing but Halloween. The idea behind Halloween goes back centuries, but the first Halloween parties that resembled modern celebrations of the holiday were costume parties for adults in the 1880s and 1890s. Costumes from those parties some of the earliest Halloween collectibles were almost always homemade. Pressed-paper veggie people, jacko-lanterns and other Halloween decorations were being made by the 1900s, mostly in Germany. By the 1920s, jacko-lanterns were made of a composition material, holes were made for the eyes and mouth, and a hand-painted piece of paper was glued inside to create a finished face. By the 1950s, Halloween decorations were being made of hard plastic, and in the 1990s a strange sponge-like plastic was popular for soft jack-o-lanterns. Pre-1950 Halloween memorabilia is scarce, so prices are high. But beware: Many reproductions of early paper jack-o-lanterns and Halloween candy containers have been made in Japan. New mail-order catalogs sell copies of old pieces along with new life-size witches, ghosts, skeletons and zombies, as well as tombstones, black cats and huge blow-up monsters and spiders. These too will be popular collectibles in a few years. This 5-inch-tall witch-head jack-o-lantern made in Germany is probably from the 1920s. Although the paint has been touched up, it sold for $1,121 at a 2014 Bertoia auction in Vineland, N.J.

Your kindness helps support the mental health and substance abuse services at David Lawrence Center. Q: I have a hand-stitched stuffed toy dog covered in a red felt-like material. It has a tag that says Shaggy and another tag that says Stuffed Toys, Registration Number 1, Approved, Penn sylv ania. Id like to know how old it is. I think Pennsylv ania had a law that regulated what kind of stuffing could be used in plush toys, but I couldnt find the date for that. Can you help? A: Pennsylv ania enacted a law regulating the manufacture of stuffed toys for retail sale in 1961, so your toy dog is less than 53 years old. The law has been amended several times. It requires All New Material or All New (Type) Material, free from dangerous or harmful substances. It must meet flammability standards and the parts and decorations must be securely fastened. Manufacturers get a certificate of registration from the state after they meet the standards and pay a fee. The registration number must be shown on the toy. Q: I have a small oil lamp that was used in our two-generation family home in rural Illinois. My family owned the home from 1867 to 1950. The lamp has an amber glass base embossed Wide Awake. Its 9 inches tall and 3 inches wide at the base, which has a finger handle. The acorn burner is brass and the chimney is clear glass. Please share its history and value. A: Miniature finger lamps like yours often were called night lamps or night lights. The name Wide Awake was one of many given to these small lamps. They were sold in the United States between about 1875 and the early 1900s. A Wide Awake lamp with a cobalt-blue base sold for $184 earlier this year. Q: Years ago, I was given an armless rocking chair by a friend. The seat is upholstered and the back has a vaseshaped splat. A label on the bottom reads, Brumby Chairs, Since 1875, The Brumby Chair Co., Marietta, Ga. Its not in the greatest condition, but Im wondering what the chair is worth. A: Brumby Chair Co. still is in business in Georgia. It is best known for its Jumbo Rocker, a large rocking armchair with a hand-caned seat and back. The company sells a new Jumbo Rocker for $995. Your chair, in a less-desirable style and in less than perfect condition, would sell as a used piece of furniture. You might get $20 to $40 for it. Q: My large fancy perfume bottle is labeled Uninhibited and Cher. It has never been opened and is nearly a foot tall. Age? Price? A: Chers Uninhibited perfume was marketed from about 1988 to 1998. Your bottle is called a factice, the word for a perfume display bottle set on a stores countertop. A full Cher factice in mint condition, like yours, sells for about $125. Tip: Dont sticky-tape a top on a teapot. The decoration may come off with the tape. Secure a top with dental wax or earthquake wax. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Can you tell me what else he has going on? Lola F., Erie, Pa.A: The sweet and sexy former soap star is currently hosting a home-renovation competition show in Canada called Game of Homes. I spoke with Cameron about it recently, and hes really excited about this new project. Its a really fun renovation/reality show where theyre taking four dilapidated houses off their foundations, and moving these houses to a really cool downtown location. The contestants make up four teams, and every week they renovate a new room of their assigned house. And every week there is a new challenge with prizes. Initially its going to air in Canada, but I have a feeling its going to appear elsewhere. Q: Please tell me the rumors Ive been hearing about a Say Anything TV series are not true. Callie F., via emailA: I am thrilled to tell you that NBCs planned Say Anything TV show has been canned. Less than 24 hours after news broke lighting up the Internet about a comedy sequel based on the hit 1989 movie, which was directed by Cameron Crowe and starred John Cusack and Ione Skye, NBC pulled the plug on the series. Apparently, Cameron called producer Aaron Kaplan (who was producing the series with writer Justin Adler) and voiced his objections to the project. Aaron and Justin were unaware that Cameron had not been contacted about or approved of the project, so they pulled out. NBC and 20th Century Fox followed suit and canceled the series. Q: When will Hot in Cleveland be back with a new season? Jeremy T., via emailA: Season six of the hit TV Land sitcom returns at 10 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5.

It was 4 p.m., and the sign at Masa across the street caught our eye: Happy Hour 3-6 p.m. / $5 Appetizers, Margaritas, House Wines and Cocktails; $4 Import Drafts. Our party of four made a beeline for the bar and settled in at a table. Since this column is about The Dish and not The Drink, I wont go into detail about the Margarita de Diabolita (think serranoand habanero-infused tequila) I sipped. Suffice it to say Id have the same thing next time. There are three appetizers on the $5 happy hour menu at Masa: Quesadilla con Pollo, Ceviche and Tacos. Order the tacos and you have your choice of two (yes, two for $5): Carne Asada, with marinated flank steak, avocado, radish, onion and cilantro; Taco Duro, with chicken, chipotle crema and cotija cheese; Conchinitas Pibil Puerco Yucateca, with roasted pork, habanero and orange salsa; and Vegetales, with squash, chorizo spices, requeson cheese, avocado and pepitas. We asked for two orders of ceviche ($10), and then each of us ordered two tacos ($20). The small plates of ceviche mahi-mahi chunks marinated in citrus juice and tossed with tomato, olives, cilantro and a tiny bit of red onion held just enough for each of us to have a couple of bites, which was also enough to lead to a unanimous ruling that wed order it again. We came to the same conclusion about our tacos. And then we told our server to bring us two more orders of tacos ($10). All told, we each had three tacos and some ceviche. A little bit of sharing allowed each of us a taste of all four tacos on the menu. Once again we were unanimous: The roasted pork was our favorite, although wed order any of the tacos again. We hadnt even spent $60, but so stuffed were we that no one could even consider ordering the fourth $5 offering on the happy hour menu: Churros, consisting of warm fritters with Oaxacan chocolate sauce. There will be a next time. One more thing: Happy hour at Masa happens in the bar from 3-6 p.m. every day and from 10 p.m. to closing SundayThursday and 11 p.m. to closing FridaySaturday.

VINO Taking a fresh look at some well-known whitesAs Count Dracula once famously said, Permit me to introduce myself. As the new wine columnist around here, I have to fill Jim McCrackens shoes, and theyre very large indeed. Jim wrote this piece for more than seven years, offering his excellent opinions and reviews, and helping a lot of enthusiasts discover new wines. Ill try to do the same, but may wander off into uncharted territory and unknown vineyards. Im delighted to take over from Jim, and hope I can live up to the standard he has set. Where to start? Well, before we go off the beaten vineyard path, it might be a good idea to take a new look at some of our favorite, most famous wines starting with the well-known whites. In the wine world, as everywhere else, fashions evolve, and styles change. So if you got fed up with, say, those heavily-oaked super-buttery California chardonnays a few years ago, maybe a sip of the more modern offerings will bring you back. Worked for me. Chardonnay is the worlds favorite white wine, but wines, as I mentioned, go in and out of fashion. To paraphrase Yogi Berra, Chardonnay is so popular nobody drinks it anymore. But people drink plenty of it, and the shelves at the wine stores groan under the weight of all the different bottles. Besides, winemakers love this grape because they can make it in an enormous range of styles. Oaky and buttery. Lean and minerally. And just about everywhere in between. Best of all, unlike some other wine grapes, its not all that particular about where you plant it. In the wine world, certain grapes are classified as noble varietals. Chardonnay is one of these, because its capable of gaining elegance as it ages. White burgundy is an excellent example. Chablis, which is a district of Burgundy, is another. And champagne is generally a blend of chardonnay with other grapes. A few years ago, wine lovers started yelling, A-B-C! Anything But Chardonnay. The reason? Winemakers, mostly in California, had, almost en masse, swung toward a style that was soaked in oak, which pretty much covered up all the other elegant flavors that this grape is capable of delivering. Too bad, because these days, the style has come back in the other direction, and many wines deliver a wide range of tutti-frutti flavors that make chardonnay so much fun. Why not do a taste test, and find out for yourself? For example, buy a bottle each of Mer Soleil Chardonnay with the gold label, and a Mer Soleil Silver, that comes in a very cool-looking white stone bottle. Same wine, same producer, same vineyards but completely different styles. The Silver will be clean, minerally, with a nice zippy acidity on the palate. The Gold will be much richer on the nose, and the aroma of oak will be unmistakable. On the palate, theres a buttery feel, a mouthfilling weight to the wine thats both very pleasant and very different from the unoaked style. Each has its fans, and each can be paired with a wide variety of cheeses and other foods. Since there are so many chardonnay styles, a stroll off the beaten track can provide some tasty new discoveries, and not always at the price of a new BMW. Bargains can be had. Dont ever be shy about trying new wines from new places. The Chileans are making some very fine examples, as are the South Africans. And even in Burgundy, there are some excellent chardonnays available for under $30 a bottle. Our favorites right now: Wente Chardonnay Riva Ranch This is a California creamy style, but the oak isnt overwhelming. There are nice notes of honeydew melon, fig, and spice. Domaine Chenevieres Chablis One of my favorite moderately-priced white burgundies, this style is an attractive straw color in the glass, with crisp apple, citrus, apricot and peach flavors. The lively acidity keeps it from that old fashioned buttery style, as does the minerality.

CHEF PROFILEChef brings vibrant Peruvian cuisine to the Naples dining sceneThe computer industrys loss is the culinary worlds gain. Rafael Rottiers, born and raised in Lima, Peru, studied to be a system engineer at San Martin Universidad Veritas. But when he landed an internship 24 years ago in California, he found his passion in the restaurant business. He promised himself that one day hed have a great restaurant that would showcase the diverse and vibrant cuisine of Peru. He realized that dream when he opened Incas Kitchen in Golden Gate in October 2008. Hes expanded the original restaurant over the years from a modest little spot to its current chic, spacious self. He went on to open Al Carbon Peruvian Rotisserie last spring, and a second Incas Kitchen will open in the Pavilion Shopping Center any day now. What led you to become a chef? The passion I found in cooking was something that was always inside. It started when I came to America on an internship in systems analysis. To pay the rent, I had a part-time job as a busser at the Cheesecake Factory in Newport Beach, Calif. Thats when I promised myself that someday I would open my own restaurant and show the world Peruvian food. What motivated you to open Incas in Golden Gate in October 2008? Werent you worried that Naples diners wouldnt make the trip out there? I did open when the economy was in its worst stage, but I was and I am very confident about my concept. I think that is what drove me. At first I was afraid, but I was waiting for the first write-up about the restaurant. That was when you and Dr. Ivan (Seligman, a blogger) came, wrote about the restaurant and helped me to build what I have now. How will the second Incas at the Pavilion be different from the original? I think the Pavilion will give us better exposure. Peruvian food is one of the best foods in the world. Incas in the Pavilion will also give us the opportunity to offer the ceviche bar concept, Sunday brunch and more classic Peruvian cuisine. How do you keep your cooking so authentic? I blend the concept with a modern touch and utilize original ingredients from Peru. Could you describe Peruvian food to those who are not familiar with it (and lets not forget to talk about all those great peppers)? Peruvian food is all about flavor and blending ingredients that are not well known outside the country unique ingredients like huacatay (Peruvian black mint) and muna, herbs you only find in Peru. And the peppers rocoto pepper, Limo peppers, yellow pepper and panca pepper (purple) all these peppers have flavor and energy when they share places on a plate. The biodiversification of Peru is unbelievable. We have 2,800 types of potatoes, 385 peppers, 85 different corns. In addition, we have influences from all over the world Italy, China, France. Did you grow up in a family of cooks? Was there a family member who influenced you? In Peru most people claim to have the touch and the best food in their homes. My family was very into food. Even though my mother and father have different careers, there were no days without cooking. When my mother cooked, my favorite dish was chupe de camarones (shrimp bouillabaisse). My father was in charge of the best barbecues ever, with handmade special sausage that everybody was desperate to have. What makes your ceviche and tiradito (Peruvian style sashimi) so good? The fresh ingredients like fresh limejuice prepared a la minute, with love and passion and the perfect recipe. The ceviche mixto and rocoto apiscado (mixed ceviche with calamari, octopus, shrimp and fish served with citrus lime rocoto pepper blended with drops of Peruvian brandy) has become very popular among ceviche lovers. Lets talk about lucama. Most Americans dont know about it. Tell us about what makes it so special and how you use it. Lucama is a unique fruit that only grows in Peru where the desert ends and mountains begin. It has a unique flavor (like butters cotch) and a consistency that works well in various desserts. Do you have any favorite dishes on the menu? I like pescado alo macho (white fish seared and grilled topped with seafood, aji amarillo, with rice, golden fried potato and mango salsa), lomo saltado (beef loin with onions, tomatoes, yellow peppers, cilantro flambe and soy sauce), aji de gallina (shredded chicken with creamy gold-yellow peppers, golden potatoes, black olives, hardboiled eggs and pecans), ceviche mixto, tiradito Nikkei and lomo ala huancaina (beef loin in creamy cheese sauce with aji Amarillo and Peruvian salsa criolla). On those rare days when you are at home, do you cook? If so, whats for dinner? To be honest, I only cook for festivities or special occasions. Otherwise, I like to enjoy a good homemade dinner made by my wife or a good restaurant. What I like to do is to drink my wines, discovering, tasting and creating different ideas. When you go out, what sort of restaurant are you likely to go to? Sushi and steak houses, seafood and unique cuisines. Anything else youd like to share with readers about you, your restaurant or life in general? There is always something more to say, but its enough to say that with what is coming at Incas Pavilion, Naples will have a unique cuisine. o c c a karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com Age: 48Restaurants: Incas Kitchen, 11985 Collier Blvd. and Pavilion Shopping Center (opening any day now) and Al Carbon Rotisserie, Radio Road Plaza, 6002 Radio RoadCulinary training: Rancho Santiago College for hospitality management; culinary training at Florida International University; hospitality training with the SheratonPrevious experience: Worked his way up to banquet manager at Sheraton Newport Beach, Calif., then transferred to Bal Harbour Sheraton in Miami; director of food and beverage at the Sonesta Hotel in Coconut Grove and the Hilton Hotel on Marco Island Rafael RottiersVANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLY
