We brace ourselves heading into November because we know as bad as congressional gridlock is now the fear and threat of more of the same are almost assured post-election. The approach of Halloween is thus a welcome diversion from the darkand-stormy nightmares robbing us of our sleep at night, perpetuated by the confused and chaotic zombies roaming the legislative halls. They have no clue about the responsibilities of governance they have sworn to uphold and the most extreme among them are happy to cannibalize the lingering bits of civility left undevoured by their equally immoderate colleagues. We all need a break. Halloween is a good excuse to take one. The fun advances on the edginess of dark themes sometime taken to extremes by adults who embrace their inner ghoul without a sense of humor, but for young people and the youthful at heart, it is a different story. They revel in the traditions of All Hallows Eve, and the opportunity to indulge in being, if only for a few hours, a citizen in a Harry Potter world. Parents and neighbors stroll in the evening shadows, stewarding their costumed kids on the street. Fairies, warriors, witches and ghosts race excitedly from house to house seeking a ransom of candy from those in wait of their unusual guests. Neighborhoods get into the groove of a fall happening, which is, in South Florida, an otherwise subdued affair. Autumn colors and an accent of the bizarre signal the arrival of a new season. Homes sprout jack-o-lanterns; ghostly apparitions appear on high in the live oaks; monstrous spiders lurk in the tangle of neon webs; and tombstones sprout up in patches of lawn, the HOA helpless to intervene. Imagination is on full display and the charm of creativity delights. We get flashes of Halloween past, and all the children we have known, still costumed in our memories. It is a lovely tradition when an abundance of good will prevails and the spirit of community emerges. Strangers meet strangers and all is well.When the Halloween fun has faded, reality returns soon enough. Our inner child warns, Be afraid. A mediocre job market sucks the vitality out of the middle class, the poor get poorer, and income inequality is the major characteristic of the new economy and gilded age of the superrich. Ideologues haunt the nations legislatures, threatening the demise of rational behavior. It is a Halloween dj vu but without the levity; and there is no sweet ending to the scenarios unfolding in many a familys home. Radicals have turned the legislative process into policy trick or treat, with tricks the dominant theme of their behavior. Their stinginess is legion with regard to the economic plight of lowand middle-income families, whose income and earnings have barely budged since 1980, accounting for inflation. The so-called recovery is creating jobs, but in the majority low-wage jobs, and an army of working poor while pay has jumped 80 percent for the top 10 percent; and a jaw-dropping 177 percent for the top 1 percent, according to IRS data that also factors inflation. Meanwhile, says The New York Times, From 2001 to 2007, 98 percent of income gains accrued to the top 10 percent of earners. This is the 21st century version of a nightmare on Elm Street we could not have imagined. With high unemployment, rising housing costs, wages stagnating, and purchasing power gone anemic, families juggle the repercussions of their economic decline by sacrificing on the fundamentals that sustain a decent standard of living such as food security, access to medical care, educational opportunity, and transportation. Unable to buy a home, they become cost burdened if more than 30 percent of their annual income goes into paying rent. The bigger the slice of income for this purpose, the closer they get to the precipice of making a devils choice: If they pay the rent, they will not have enough to get through until the next paycheck. This is a life haunted by the death of optimism and the slow strangulation of modest dreams. For the first time, the majority of Americans expect their kids to face an economic future less secure than their own. The toxicity of the political rhetoric blinds and poisons those callous enough to suggest the governments default on the social safety net is a necessary evil that protects the nations most vulnerable; and scolds middle class Americans, suggesting they are lazy or simply not trying hard enough. Blaming those most victimized by the excesses of Wall Street is a slap in the face of American workers who make this country great but it gets worse. Corporations deemed to be people and money exercised as free speech is a Frankenstein democracy governing in a long night of the living dead. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

For a few weeks in August, the attention of the national media focused on the suburb of St. Louis, and MSNBC practically broadcast nothing else. While the media long ago moved on, the protests have persisted, entering their late, decadent phase of selfindulgent triviality. Cornel West got arrested last week, and Al Sharpton is heading back to Ferguson at the end of the month to pump up attention for what styles itself a movement, although it is more tinny by the day. A hallmark of August was pointlessly destructive civil disorder, and its only gotten more pointless. In late September, the makeshift memorial to Michael Brown on the street in Ferguson burned down. This set off minor rioting, including the vandalizing of a beauty salon that has been hit multiple times for the offense of operating a business in a town where protesters are so committed to justice. In nearby S t. Louis a few weeks later, an off-duty cop working as a private security guard shot to death a teen who had fired at him with a Ruger 9 mm. It turned out the gun had been stolen two weeks earlier, and the teen, monitored with an ankle bracelet, had been awaiting trial on a felony concealed-weapon charge. Protesters took the streets to demonstrate against what would strike most people as a legitimate act of selfdefense, chanting the inapt "Hands up, dont shoot!" A grand jury is still considering the evidence in the shooting of Michael Brown, which protesters long ago concluded is a case of murder in the first degree. Its not possible for anyone who wasnt there to know what happened on that day, when Mr. Browns friend said Mr. Brown was attacked by Officer Darren Wilson and shot while running away. An anonymous witness who saw the entire incident from beginning to end told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that after an initial scuffle in the car, Officer Wilson didnt shoot Mr. Brown until he turned back toward him. Mr. Brown kept coming toward Officer Wilson despite orders to stop, and was 20-25 feet away when the last shots were fired. According to the witness, Mr. Brown did not raise his arms in the gesture of surrender that is the iconic symbol of the Ferguson protests. Although the witness believes Officer Wilson didnt have to kill Mr. Brown, his version is more complicated than the one taken as a given by the protesters. The New York Times has reported that Darren Wilson told investigators that Mr. Brown pinned him in his vehicle and there was a struggle over his gun, and he feared for his life. FBI forensics show that the gun was indeed fired twice in the car, and Mr. Browns blood was on the gun and Officer Wilsons uniform. Mr. Sharpton and protesters maintain that all they want is justice. It may well be what justice demands in this case is no indictment of a cop who fired in self-defense. Although, sadly, that is unlikely to be a formula for peace.

Well, thats exactly how atlarge districts work. While they are a thing of the past for the state Legislature, Lee County still has atlarge elections for several local legislative bodies, specifically the Lee County Commission and the Lee County school board. In a bid to stop the rising influence of minority groups in 1950s, both black and Republican voters were effectively shut out of legislative races when the state of Florida changed from the age-old system of single-member districts to the pernicious at-large system. Prior to 1956, all Florida counties had singlemember district elections for county commission. This was altered in order to thwart the potential election of minority candidates to county offices. A constitutional amendment sponsored by the Republican Party of Florida and the NAACP in 1984 reintroduced single-member districts to state government. But Lee County still utilizes the 1956 at-large method for county elections and the school board has been modeled after them ever since local school districts were abolished to end segregation. However, school boards are not required to mirror their county government, despite being countywide entities. In fact, research by the staff of the Florida House revealed that the Florida Constitution states each school district shall be composed of five or more school board members. These members will be elected in nonpartisan elections and will serve terms of four years each Neither the Florida Constitution nor general law expressly prohibits a school district from holding a local referendum to increase membership seats for a school board Consequently, based upon the district school boards home rule power, the district may place a proposition on the ballot... In Lee County today, both boards have five members elected countywide, but each member must live in one of the districts. By electing members atlarge, the voter does not get the opportunity to choose all five members, as some would suggest, but rather gets told by the other four districts who their representative will be during the coming term. This can be a critical problem; most recently when Eric Feichthaler won his district, District 1, but lost the race overall to the incumbent, Bob Janes. Now some might point to the relative rarity of this occurrence and the regular victory of candidates universally across all five districts. What is left unsaid is how many candidates decline the opportunity to serve due to the size and cost of a countywide election. If you decide to send just one letter to each and every voter, between the stamp and the printing the cost can easily exceed $300,000. So many voters lament that they know very little about their candidates, but at these costs, it is little wonder why. Access to and by the voters is the most important facet of legislative office and large constituencies naturally limit responsive decisionmaking. Today, Lee County is nearing 700,000 residents. This makes us larger than the states of Wyoming and Vermont, which have a 60-member and 150-member state house, respectively. The sovereign will of 700,000 persons is a serious responsibility and having the opportunity for smaller groups to make their unique choices will serve to make our countylevel legislatures more responsive. In fact, every county larger than Lee has expanded their school boards to between seven to nine members, including Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Palm Beach and Pinellas. While Polk County is smaller than Lee, it changed to a seven-member board in 1996. This election season, you will have the opportunity to bring that local responsiveness to your Lee County school board. The board has proposed a system that would elect the five current members in single-member districts, but would add two additional seats that would be countywide, with no district residency restriction. This is a compromise solution that will retain a countywide perspective while focusing the majority of the board on their local districts and their neighborhood schools. I encourage everyone to vote Yes on the school board referendum. Matt Caldwell is the state representative for District 79, which includes Lehigh Acres, Alva and North Fort Myers. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly CALDWELL

It was a business matter, mostly, but it also involved some personal dealings and some people I knew well and others I didnt know at all. For days, I tried to figure out the best and most equitable solution for all parties concerned, including myself, but I just couldnt get there. Worse yet, I lost two nights of sleep and wasnt able to give my full concentration to anything else. Even people I barely knew could tell something was wrong. The week before all of this occurred, I had purchased some flats of begonias. If I didnt get them in the ground pretty soon, theyd die. One morning, as they sat there staring at me through the breakfast window, I did something I never do except for when theres a family emergency. I cleared my schedule. I didnt have any appointments, just lots of small tasks that could wait. I called the office, told my assistant to move a few things around and suddenly found myself staring back at those begonias and smiling. I changed out of my business clothes and went out to spend the day getting dirty. I even turned off my cell phone. Theres a natural serendipity to gardening, both physically and mentally. One thing leads to another. Unplanned things. What used to go here gets replanted over there. Tasks arise. I need some potting soil. And some Miracle Gro. Maybe a new sprayer. Almost immediately, all of the angst I had been experiencing was gone and I was barely aware of it disappearing. I picked up a trowel and when I dug into the earth, my senses came alive. There was the mild stench of sulfur, the cool feel of the loamy soil, the mix of light sand and black dirt, the cacophony of songbirds, scampering squirrels and the occasional rush of wind through the leaves of my mahogany tree. I started to daydream a true luxury for me. Suddenly, there were all these unexpected thoughts and feelings: memories of childhood, paintings I had done, longlost friends, the movie I had seen the night before, a relaxing walk I had taken with my husband one cool evening many months ago all of them separate, disjunctive, really, but nonetheless fitting together, flowing from one to the other without any logical order. Somehow, out of all of these, and so completely unrelated to them, came the answer to my problem. Like magic. It was not only clear now, but remarkably simple. Why had I not known this all along? Could it be that my worry over the various outc omes was so great that it overshadowed the problem itself? Or could I have failed to focus on the right aspects of the problem? Whatever it was, somewhere between the begonias and the soil coming through a little hole in my gardening glove, between the monotonous call of the mourning dove and chainsaw down the block, the answer came to me like a genie on a cloud. You know when you try to remember something and you just cant, then you quit trying and y ou suddenly do? Thats what happened here. But in this process, I transformed a barren patch of dirt in my backyard into a colorful little flower garden. I accomplished two things at once. Well, three really: I got a glow of color to my fair skin to boot. And theres more. This little garden will need my tender loving care on a regular basis, which means it will also avail me to its problem-solving talents. I slept like a baby that night as only a body can after a day of work in the fresh air and when I awoke, every aspect of my life made sense. Yes, I had cleared my schedule, but I had also cleared my mind. Next time youre in a funk, try a little gardening and be prepared for your mind to wander to beautiful places and return home with wonderful answers.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCT. 30-NOV. 5, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYtoward me, calm now and smiling. I asked if he had heard of the disease that was killing Floridas citrus trees, a terminal illness called citrus greening, or Huanglongbing (HLB), but he was there to save Man instead. Man has a disease, he said. You know what this is sin. And the only cure is Jesus Christ and his blood. I had been standing with Mr. Sterlings friend, pastor and missionary C.E. Mainous, who had heard of the disease. Among citrus growers in the Christian, rural interior of the state, it has reached the almost biblical dimensions of plague, killing their trees and spreading to every grove in the past decade. And with no sure cure but myriad ways to slow the disease, hopefully long enough to make a profit before the trees die a cloud of uncertainty mixed with hope hangs over the industry. Mr. Mainous himself used to have three orange trees in his backyard. The disease took two, he figures, and one is left, a Honeybell tree. I dont know if itll last another year or not, he said. If youve never ate a Honeybell orange you oughta get one. Fantastic. Juicy. Sweet. When I asked what spiritual advice he might offer growers, he said, Pray. Many of them surely are, even as they wait for science to find a solution, and tend their groves more vigilantly than ever. C.E. Mainous handed me a small pamphlet. Inside it read, Life is very uncertain, and you have no guarantee that you will be alive this time tomorrowTHE FLORIDA CITRUS BELT bands the state, the writer John Mulliken observed in a Fort Lauderdale SunSentinel article 30 years ago, the same way a rural, Southern sheriff might wear his gunbelt low-slung. The description is true today. Once clinched around the states midsection, growers were forced south because of freezes, and over decades they were also squeezed inland by urban development. Now this rural, Southern belt responsible for three-quarters of the nations orange crop, most of it used for notfrom-concentrate juice exists south of Interstate 4. The road is slung at an angle from Tampa up through the northwest corner of Polk County (Lakeland and the surrounding area), the geographic center of the Florida peninsula and defacto heart of the states signature industry. As of six years ago, the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agriculture Sciences reported that citrus had an $8.9 billion economic impact in the state and provided 75,800 jobs. The orange is the official state fruit, its juice the state drink, its trees heady blooms the state flower, its name gracing street signs and at least one diner in Frostproof, as well as the famous college football game held in Miami. And for the past 10 years, the citrus belt has been dying from citrus greening or Huanglongbing. That means yellow dragon disease in Chinese, China being the country where HLB is first known to have existed a century or more ago. It was officially first discovered in the United States in Miami-Dade County in 2005, before appearing in Texas and California. One Florida grower told me he saw the Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina citri), the tiny bug that carries the bacterium (Candidatus Liberabacter asiaticus) in its saliva and feeds on citrus tree leaves, as early as 2000. UF reported that in the four years through the 2010-11 growing season, HLB cost the state 8,257 jobs and $4.5 billion in lost revenue. Since then production has only continued to drop, and its not clear just how many of Floridas citrus trees are infected, scientists said, because it can take up to five years for symptoms of HLB to express in a mature tree. If they dont find a cure for it soon its going to devastate this economy, said Polk County Commissioner Melanie Bell. The HLB greening situation is very frightening to our state, said Hendry County Commissioner Karson Turner. Florida has been known as a citrus producer my entire life. It puts us on the map internationally. The citrus industry is on life support in many ways. Maybe life support is a strong word but its definitely in critical condition. Its a bad, bad disease right now. And theres no answer. Thats the scary thing. No way to defeat this bug thats out there. Meanwhile, Americans are drinking less orange juice, which industry experts believe is tied to the rising price of juice due to lack of supply. The decline in demand is also partly a reaction to the obesity epidemic and the perception that the beverage is too high in calories and sugar. BY ALL ACCOUNTS, THE PAST decade has been the most challenging period for Florida citrus farmers in history. By last season, the more than 200 million boxes of oranges the citrus belt produced had been cut in half, with every commercial citrus grove in the state if not every tree infected with HLB. I dont care how strong you are on the balance sheet or personally, its a very difficult time for all of us, said Paul Meador, who owns Everglades Harvesting & Hauling in LaBelle. All the trees in the ground now, that have been around 10 to 20 years, are pretty much all infected, said Fran Becker, vice president of fruit procurement for Peace River Citrus Products, a large-scale orange and grapefruit growing and packing operation with the capacity to process 20 million boxes of fruit per year. You see (HLB) in every tree, almost, said Kevin Shelfer, a 53-yearold grower whose family has run the 300-acre Joshua Citrus groves near Arcadia since the late 1880s. Last year, his crop was half what it was the year before. On a tour of his groves, his wife, Lynn, pointed out that a side effect of HLB is a spike in salesmen pushing nutrients and chemicals designed to save their trees. Kevin gets phone calls all the time, she said. Its like in the old days, everybody has a snake oil. Some may help more or less it can be hard to tell. One of the frustrating aspects of HLB is that what works in one part of the state, or in one gr ove, or even from one tree to the next, isnt always consistent. Theres a lot of uncertainty because were not sure the trees will keep going like they are, said grower Bobby Mixon about the citrus trees on his 1,600 acres (some devoted to cattle) in Hardee and DeSoto counties. I think the majority of growers is going to come up with a way to overcome it. Thats my feeling. Im not giving up on it anyhow, and most growers arent. We think the citrus industrys going to be here. Im optimistic well overcome the greening somewhere down the road. Well learn to live with it until we overcome it. But there has also been an increase in growers abandoning their groves or selling them, especially smaller operations that cant afford the high upfront costs of caring for trees with HLB. Smaller or marginal producers who control maybe a few hundred acres, those folks are gone, said Carey Soud, who was one of them. His family harvested citrus on about 150 acres until a few years ago when a freeze killed off his trees, already weakened by HLB. Mr. Carey, who is also president of First Bank of Clewiston, pointed out that HLB has affected lending. We did a good bit of citrus lending up until really the past year, he said. Now the bank is mostly not looking to do any citrus loans. Theres not a whole lot of confidence in the credit sector that you can plant a tree and control greening and have a viable citrus operation.HLB SHUTS DOWN AN orange or grapefruit trees vascular system during the course of roughly five to 10 years. The tree, unable to deliver nutrients through its roots and up into the fruit, becomes progressively weaker and dies. Costly, coordinated treatments of pesticides to reduce the psyllid population and a variety of nutrients to baby the sick plant have been found to keep many trees alive longer. But even with constant attention, it is not known how long growers can keep a tree with HLB in remission and the tree economically viable. It could take five years for a young tree to produce fruit and 10 to 15 to reach maximum yield. Historically, trees last 30 or 40 years, with heritage trees 80 and older in some places. But with HLB, that productive life could be reduced to 10 or 20 years at best, making it harder to break even on total costs. Because it is believed that most of Floridas mature citrus trees now have the HLB virus, industry professionals are working under the assumption that the existing crop will die out by roughly 2025 unless a cure is discovered. Thats why researchers and growers stress the importance of replanting and protecting new trees. Indeed, groves throughout the state are dotted with young citrus trees that have come fresh CITRUSFrom page 1 EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYKevin Shelfer with a young orange tree at his grove in Arcadia.

The maturely established groves its safe to say a large majority of those trees are infected, said Michael Rogers, an entomologist, associate professor and interim director of the University of Floridas Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred, at the northern edge of Polk County. And thats why the tree replanting is so important because we know we are going to be losing a lot of these trees in the next five to 10 years. If we didnt replant, 10 years from now we wont have a citrus crop because of this disease. Today, almost 15 percent of Floridas 515,000 acres of commercial citrus are trees that have come from nurseries in the past four years, Mr. Rogers estimates. That is based on the maximum number of trees a nursery can produce per year. Growers who can afford to stay in the business now are replanting at such a high rate that nurseries are all by and large on backorder, an indication of both optimism and that growers have little other choice. Many of the young trees are experimental rootstalks that may have a stronger tolerance for HLB. That doesnt mean theyre not going to be infected but they seem to hold up and last longer, Mr. Rogers said. These are some of the first generation of new plant material that are coming through the breeding program. As an HLB-positive tree sickens, it produces less fruit, and a portion of the citrus fruit, unable to be sustained by an infected tree, drops to the ground while still green, before it has a chance to ripen. HLB, its fruit drop and other symptoms such as yellowing leaves account for the lions share of Floridas enormous loss of production in the last decade, industry experts say. But the disease has also made the weakened trees the leaves thinning out, skeletal branches appearing, the roots weakening, mirroring what happens above ground far more susceptible to a long list of other diseases and pests, including freezes and canker. If people are taking care of the trees they can make a good profit, said Mongi Zekri, a University of Florida IFAS citrus extension agent. We have groves that have been infected since 2006 and they have been producing the same crop, almost the same yield. But he adds, If you cause any stress to the trees, the tree will decline really drastically. A long time ago if you get greedy with the trees, they will still produce a decent crop, but nowadays, you have to spend money (on pesticide, fertilizer and management). You can spend money or you can stop but you cannot stay in the middle, because any kind of stress can cause the fruit to drop on the ground before it reaches maturity.SCOTT YOUNGS GRANDFATHER established a grove in Alturas, a semi-rural Polk County community of about 4,200 just east of Bartow, near the start of the Great Depression. Polk County produces more citrus on more acreage than any other county in the state. The Young family plans to keep a small portion of their roughly 500 acres as a nucleus, and sell the rest, said Mr. Young, who is 57. We cant hang on in the current situation. But it hasnt sold yet, and for now he is still running the grove along with his family. His mother, Wanda, does the bookkeeping. Were keepin on keepin on, thats the best way to put it. And were praying for a miracle, he said, talking with me in a barn filled with memorabilia, including an old Wurlitzer jukebox with a picture of the New York City skyline, including the Twin Towers, on the front. Governors and senators have hosted meetings at this barn, Mr. Young told me. His thoughts seemed to drift for a moment and he said, as much to himself as me, (HLB) could run its course. Who knows. Mr. Young sees the problem through his fathers eyes as well. Its kind of disheartening to live your life and build up an empire and watch it go out when youre going out, he said. For his father, Leland, who was out back working on a mechanical part of some kind his ability to fix brokendown vehicles apparently legendary uncertainty defines the disease: the feeling of feeling your way in the dark, that in spite of your own best knowledge and the best efforts of science, your efforts may be in vain. When his son asked him if he had anything to say to a reporter about greening he said, I dont know anything about it. Nobody does. Were fighting blind, his son said. After a moment, his father walked over to where we were standing in the storied barn, talking, his body moving in a way that was wooden but forceful. He flashed a smile, revealing a surprising row of perfect, straight white teeth. Ive been growing for more than 60 years, he added. I did a pretty good job of it and now I cant. Thats what I know. As a grower, his son has battled one pest after another, but nothing like this. The only thing he can compare it to is the boll weevil beetle, which his relatives once faced. They came from Georgia where the boll weevil ran them out of the cotton industry, Mr. Young said and they came to Alturas and founded his citrus grove. So its kind of happening again. But were a tough bunch.DEAN SAUNDERS, A FORMER state legislator who has for years run a large real estate practice specializing in agricultural land, put me in touch with the Young family when I visited his expansive, third-floor office in downtown Lakeland earlier that day. Born in Clermont, Mr. Saunders graduated from the University of Florida where he was a member of the Citrus Club with a degree in fruit crops, food and resource economics. He served as a Democrat in the state House of Representatives between 1992 and 1996, before establishing his current brokerage. The small guys (growers) cant afford to keep going, paying the money they are for production costs, he said. Theres a paradigm where the small guys are getting out and some of the larger guys want to get larger and see an opportunity: you know theres always an opportunity with this stuff. I think everybody is optimistic that we will get some solution and some resolution but the question is when and can people survive between now and then? He sums up the problem for a smaller grower: I was producing 400 boxes to the acre now Im producing around 200 and Im afraid Im less than 200. They start doing the math. Its costing you close to $2,000 per acre to grow it now and if youve only got 200 boxes of fruit, those economics dont work. With citrus production hovering at about 100 million boxes per year, Mr. Saunders said, the infrastructure around the industry is now going to have stresses and strains on it. And so you couple all those things with declining juice consumption theres just a lot of things going on as far as a perfect storm in the industry. But again where some people see doom and gloom or some people just are faced with the reality of whats going on with their individual groves, other people see some opportunities maybe to expand their acreage at some point in the future. Mr. Saunders also believes government, including Florida legislators, should consider short-term financial help for grove owners intended to stabilize the citrus-processing infrastructure by offering growers a way to produce at lower costs, thereby lowering the cost for consumers and making orange juice a more attractive choice. Im not an advocate of long-term government intervention at all, he said. But if theres a time and place for (short-term intervention), its now. We need to start talking about it now.FOR FLORIDIANS WHO WORK IN the citrus business, including some 8,000 growers, their families, friends and neighbors, living under the cloud of HLB has become routine. Thats kind of old news, isnt it? said one of a group of men from this crowd in downtown Arcadia. They filter in to Wheelers diner almost every morning about 5 a.m. for breakfast, said a waitress there. Most of them know about the citrus business, shed heard bits and pieces of conversation about greening, and suggested I might speak with them. Walking along the dark streets at 5:40, I met the disciple Jeremiah Sterling, the possessed man who responded to my question about citrus greening with proselytism. Wheelers open door glowed. Inside the small bright room, early morning conversations percolated. A rotating group of men, a few middle-aged but most with roughened faces and silver hair, were hunched around two tables. None of them agreed to give their names to the reporter who showed up unexpectedly so early in the day. They were cagey about revealing their occupations. A few may have been politicians, another said he was a grower who housed seasonal grove workers (slumlord his friends goaded him) but later seemed to deny it; anothers brother was a grower, one was in the funeral business, and so on. Yet, they let me have breakfast with them nonetheless and suggested others I might speak with. They paused for a brief, almost unnoticeable but distinct moment of silent prayer before digging in to eggs, bacon, grits, buttered toast and conv ersa tion. You get rid of oranges in this county and were in trouble its citrus and cattle, said one of the men, the only clearly identifiable member of the group, a highway patrolman in uniform. Earlier in his life he had considered being a grower, but he shakes his head at the idea now. You couldnt give him a grove for free. The one whose brother is in the business thinks groves will be largely wiped out within 10 years. A lot of people are more optimistic than I am, he conceded, speculating about other things that could be grown instead of citrus trees: marijuana, nuts, grapes. Who knows, you might be able to grow cocoa beans, he said, or coffee. To date, researchers and growers said they have not found any alternative to take the place of citrus. One man walked in later than the others, shortly after 6 a.m. He recounted learning to drive in citrus groves, hunting rabbits in them, and getting a job picking fruit and watering trees, along with his wife, almost 60 years ago when they were newlyweds. It was a different town back then, he said. It was a different country. EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDAS WEEKLYDean Saunders at his downtown Lakeland office.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCT. 30-NOV. 5, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAS FALL BEGINS, GROWERS continue to weather uncertainty as they wait for what could be, at least according to U.S. Department of Agriculture predictions, a year in which production stops hemorrhaging. Because of ideal growing conditions, a rainy summer and babied trees, many groves look as full and loaded with fruit now as they ever have. But even the best-looking trees may carry the HLB virus, and as much as they try to put it in remission, as nice as the trees look now, it could potentially cause a lot of the fruit on them to drop off before its harvested in the next few months. Growers bid to delay the death of trees is matched only by a vast, sustained effort by the scientific community. The Citrus Research and Development Foundation was founded in 2009 to raise money to fund HLB research. It has already spent more than $92 million and partnered with experts all over the world (HLB is a threat to citrus farmers everywhere). The foundation is funding 130 projects at public and private institutions, including more than two dozen universities in the U.S. In spite of all this, a silver bullet solution to the disease has eluded them. There is still no cure, no antibiotic, no disease-immune rootstalk, or genetically engineered tree whose genes are not susceptible to the bacterium. But researchers leading the effort, as well as some growers, believe they have found a toolbox full of methods to keep trees alive at least long enough to stay economically viable, pulling the citrus industry back from the edge of an apparent widespread collapse. Long term like with most problems in agriculture, its kind of a system integration where you adjust a bunch of things and collectively it solves a problem, said Harold Browning, the foundations chief operations officer. SINCE HLB APPEARED IN THE United States, knowledge about it has exploded. Weve learned more in the past seven or eight years than has been learned in 100 years elsewhere, said entomologist Mr. Rogers. Weve had so many scientists working on this weve really come a long way in how to deal with and manage this disease. Weve got some of these new rootstocks that are out there that are a little more tolerant now, and people see there is a future for citrus industry in Florida. If you want to stay in this industry, youve got to replant and move forward. One of the most successful means of slowing HLB has been coordinated pesticide sprays across numerous groves under different ownership, or Citrus Health Management Areas. That helps prevent psyllids from grove hopping from a recently treated field to an untreated one. There are now 52 CHMAs in the state. The program began in 2011. Since that time weve seen about a 60 percent reduction in psyllid population statewide, Mr. Rogers said. The UF Citrus Research and Education Center (not to be confused with the Citrus Research and Development Foundation, also in Lake Alfred) has studied all aspects of citrus exclusively for close to a century, but its more than 20 faculty members are now all focusing on HLB. Until his current administrative role, Mr. Rogers studied how psyllids breed and transmit the pathogen (bacterium) to trees. All the faculty here has transitioned their programs to focus on citrus greening research, said Mr. Rogers. Its the most important problem facing our industry right now. There have been a lot of diseases that have come through the industry and said this will be the disease that will wipe out the industry. But greening is a little bit different. Its origins are back more than 100 years in Asian countries despite the fact that this disease has been out there nobody has found a cure for it. Its considered to be the most dangerous (disease affecting citrus trees) worldwide. One of the largest stumbling blocks to finding a way to control the HLB pathogen is that so far it can only be studied in a natural setting, making gold-standard scientific research impossible. Here were trying to find a way to cure and prevent this disease, but we havent even cultured the disease in a laboratory, Mr. Rogers said. Too, the psyllid that spreads the disease has a high rate of reproduction. A female can lay 800 eggs in a short period, with the population exploding in just a few weeks. It only takes one psyllid feeding on a healthy tree which begins the process of the death of that tree, he said. We have to have pretty much perfect psyllid control. Our goal is to eliminate all the psyllids. A tree bred to be disease tolerant or a genetically engineered tree such as adding a gene from spinach that would make it immune to HLB offer two of the most promising long-term solutions to greening. I think one of the biggest hindrances of (genetic engineering) is trying to get the public to understand theres nothing wrong with a genetically modified citrus, Mr. Rogers said. Among numerous short-term methods to keep trees productive are heat or steam therapies that temporarily raise the temperature of the tree enough to kill off bacteria inside it. ON A FRIDAY EVENING NEAR Frostproof, I turned off the road and took a smaller road around a bend, and then an even smaller road that was paved but in disrepair. The citrus trees on both sides were so thick and tall, the branches heavy with large clusters of perfect green oranges green as they should be before harvest season, roughly November through May the dark shiny leaves so thick on the branches that they almost completely blocked out the evening sun dropping behind them. And then I came to a field that stood out starkly from the rest. The rows of orange trees were almost all skeletons, nearly fruitless. At the front of this ghost grove were staked two small signs, each one a picture of a cross, like a roadside memorial for the states dying groves and its embattled growers. The quiet and peacefulness was overwhelming, and I lay down in the grass to get a good angle on some pictures of the crosses. After a few moments a white truck rambled up over a small hill at the crest of the grove and down one of the alleys toward me. I got up and stood by the road. The truck pulled up and the driver beckoned for me to open the passenger side door. Bob Harvey had not been expecting company. Shirtless and with his white hair somewhat disheveled, he regarded me with only the faintest hint of suspicion, and said he was just taking out the garbage and then hed talk with me. He and his wife own 10 acres, and theyre surrounded by big growers, companies that manage thousands of acres, Mr. Harvey said. They pour enormous amounts of money into keeping the trees healthy, while he hasnt tended his 10-acre plot since Hurricane Charley wiped out his irrigation system in 2004. After that, citrus greening sped up the process of killing the trees, he believes. He and his wife used to make around $10,000 per year from its produce but now that has been reduced to spending money for the Harveys, who enjoy eating out. Even this stark-looking grove produces enough for that. His wife will pick a few bushels and sell them at a market. One boon of letting the trees take their natural course is that their Valencia oranges qualify as certified organic. As it turns out, the crosses were not a memorial or prayer for dying trees, at least not intentionally. Mr. Harvey explained that he and his wife are also deeply religious, and their driveway runs up through the orange grove. They put out the crosses to mark a spot that company can find when they come to visit. EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYScott Young at his grove in Alturas.

PELICAN MARSH GOLF CLUB Celebrates 20 th Anniversary Reciprocal Tee Times Reserved Club to Club Visit us during reciprocal season.Located on US 41 North of Vanderbilt Beach Road, next to Mercato.PelicanMarshGC.com Schedule a Private Tour (239) 597-0016PREMIER. PERFECT. PELICAN MARSH.Eye of the beholderThe Osiligi Maasai Warrior choir, from Kenya, in ornate, mystifying native costumes and uncalled-for headdresses, happened to be touring the U.K. this fall, coinciding with the recent Paris Fashion Week in which the most celebrated designers from the developed world exhibited their wares, which often seemed as excessive as the Maasais. Examples: Rei Kawakubos Blood and Roses, a red KKK-type swaddling robe with faceobscuring, pointy hood. Sarah Burtons skirt of oversized petals, accessorized with skull cap and chin strap. Junya Watanabes dress with huge plastic puff sleeves of red and blue and vinyl see-through helmet. Julie de Librans gown with earmuff-like chest coverings. The week ended with a street march of Chanel girls (most, Caucasian) dressed as garishly as the African Maasais. (Bonus: Some designers delightfully offered explanations of their ofteninexplicable works.) Government in action Oops: The Rural Municipality of Hanover, Manitoba, has prohibited alcohol sales for more than a century or at least thats what everyone in the community believed as recently as 2006 when the last attempt was made to repeal the ban (and failed by 30 votes). However, town officials finally decided recently to research the prohibition (examining records back to 1880) and in July revealed, astonishingly, that no city bylaw exists making the town dry. At least one restaurateur is expected to start serving booze soon. In August, Katja Kipping, the leader of Germanys largest opposition party (the liberal Die Linke), proposed to grant all welfare families a cash voucher of the equivalent of about $640 in order to allow each a summer vacation. For me, she said, the holidays of my childhood are among the most beautiful memories, and she is saddened that million children this summer cannot experience what a holiday means. Wait, what? In October in Gresham, Oregon, a 21-year-old man openly carrying a handgun he had just bought was robbed, at gunpoint, the same day. According to the police report, the robber apparently thought the victims gun was nicer than his own: I like your gun. Give it to me. New World Order: In September, Dr. Sean Perry of the Marathon (Florida) Veterinary Hospital saved the life of Buttercup, an orange tabby who needed blood by giving him a transfusion from a West Palm Beach dog blood bank. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, 62 cats have been known to receive such xenotransfusions, and cats are apparently the only animals (besides dogs) that can safely process dog blood.Legal technicalitiesWhen a van on official business for the city of St. Paul, Minnesota, accidentally hit Megan Campbells Nissan Pathfinder in August, Campbell, naturally, filed a claim against the city for the $1,900 damage normally just a cost of business for a city and one of about 400 claims St. Paul has processed this year. However, the van happened to be driven by the same Megan Campbell, an employee of St. Paul Parks and Recreation, who apparently could not avoid hitting her own parked SUV. At press time, the city was investigating but expected to handle the claim as routine.Too much informationPauline Chai and her estranged husband, Khoo Kay Peng (a Laura Ashley executive), are battling in a London courtroom in a very expensive divorce, with the current issue to determine whether the English judge has jurisdiction instead of courts in the couples native Malaysia. In the course of bringing the British judge up to date, Chai casually described how she has supported her husbands relentless nature by revealing that he would do copious amounts of work (for four hours at a time) at home while sitting on the toilet. Khoo got backache there, she said, so I got the idea of (a) padded toilet seat for him. NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

The decline should not be indicative of a trend, according to Chris McCarty, director of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research, which conducts the survey. Given that the stock market has improved late in the month and the decline was only a point, we dont view the drop as significant, Mr. McCarty says. Of the five components used in the survey, three declined, one increased and one stayed the same. Survey-takers overall perception whether their personal finances are better now than a year ago fell four points to 71, while their expectations of being better off financially one year from now fell one point to 82. Confidence in the national economy over the coming year fell one point to 78, but it rose a point to 82 when respondents were asked to consider U.S. economic conditions over the next five years. Finally, respondents perception as to whether it is a good time to buy bigticket item stayed the same at 96. The decline in the sentiment index was mostly among those in higher income households who are more likely to have holdings in the stock market either directly or indirectly through retirement accounts, Mr. McCarty says. The gloomy outlook for the stock market is fueled by concerns over declining global markets, expected Federal Reserve interest rate hikes and the potential economic effects from Ebola, he adds. Overall, economic indicators for Florida have been steady. Unemployment for September declined to 6.1 percent, .2 percent higher than U.S. rate of 5.9 percent. However, Mr. McCarty notes, an increase in jobs rather than a decline in the labor force was a major reason for the drop in the unemployment figure. Other data show a fuller employment picture: The unemployment rate for part-time and discouraged workers is the 12th highest in the country at 13.4 percent. In addition, Floridas hourly wages and median income are much lower than the national average. Housing in Florida remains strong. Inflation, meanwhile, remains low largely because of declines in gasoline prices. There are headwinds that may make it difficult for the index to rise much next month, Mr. McCarty warns, noting a struggling global market and, in the Sunshine State, a gubernatorial election. Most polls show a very close race, and as is typical after such elections, about half of the electorate will not be happy with the outc ome, he says. This mood often shows up in the sentiment index for that month, but it will not last, he says, adding holiday sales are expected to be better than last year.

Based on a book of the same name by Ann Weiss, the exhibit contains family photos carried by Jews when they were deported to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp from all over Europe. The photos were confiscated from the deportees in 1943 upon their arrival in the camp. While the Nazis ordered that all pictures be destroyed, somehow these special photos remained hidden for more than 40 years. During a 1986 visit to Auschwitz, Ms. Weiss accidently discovered 2,400 pictures in a storeroom. Depicting happy, smiling people enjoying everyday life and special occasions, the pictures are simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking. Most of those in the photos would not survive their time at the camp. After discovering the photos, Ms. Weiss traveled the world in an attempt to track down surviving family members and document some of the lives of those who were pictured and perished. The exhibit has traveled the U.S., Europe and the Middle East. The museum is at 4760 Tamiami Trail N. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students.

With the flu season comes the opportunity to combat this pesky virus with a flu shot. Everyone age 6 months or older should get the flu shot, says Mohammad Ayaz Sadat, M.D., Lee Memorial Health System family medicine resident. Babies up to 6 months of age have protection if mom had a flu shot during pregnancy. While the flu can strike any time of the year, now is the time when it hits a high number of people. In tropical areas we find that flu is more active in fall and winter, Dr. Sadat says. Pregnant women are susceptible to contracting the flu, a situation that makes the pregnancy more difficult. We encourage pregnant women to get the flu shot, Dr. Sadat says. Flu shots have been given to millions of pregnant women over several decades and have not been shown to cause harm to pregnant women or their babies. The shot can be given to a pregnant woman in any trimester. Flu is more likely to cause severe illness in pregnant women than in women who are not pregnant, Dr. Sadat says. Changes in the immune system, heart and lungs during pregnancy make pregnant women more prone to severe illness from flu, as well as hospitalizations and even death, he says. Pregnant women with flu also have a greater chance for serious problems for their unborn baby, including premature labor and delivery. Dr. Sadat stresses the importance of pregnant women receiving the shot, not the attenuated (weakened) vaccine, which is administered as a nasal spray. Once a woman has given birth, even if she is breast-feeding, she can receive either type of vaccine, Dr. Sadat says. Remember, the flu shot takes two weeks to induce protection against flu, so even if you have gotten a flu shot, you should avoid contact from all those who have active flu-like illness. Avoiding the flu helps everyone, from co-workers to family members of all ages. The flu vaccination can keep you from getting sick from flu, Dr. Sadat reminds patients. Protecting yourself from flu also protects the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness. Contact your primary care physician to schedule a flu shot. T his w eek I pose a few What if? questions. What if ours could become the healthiest region in the nation within the next decade? What if we experienced no severe cyclical economic downturns during the next decade? What if we outgrew our dependence on tourism, retirees, building, agriculture and health care and could help everyone in Southwest Florida lead longer, happier, and healthier lives? What if our region could change its culture in the coming years much like NCH has changed its culture during the past 14 years? Southwest Florida has experienced monumental change, from the opening of the Tamiami Trail and completion of I-75 to regionalizing air travel and expanding higher educational institutions such as Florida Gulf Coast University, Florida SouthWestern State College and Hodges University. Now is the time to change the way we think, especially about the health and wellness of our citizens. The answer to my What ifs lies in the Blue Zones Project that has come to Collier County at the invitation of the NCH Healthcare System and other community leaders. We have brought the Blue Zones Project to Southwest Florida to make our region an even healthier, happier and vibrant place to live in the next decade. So what exactly is the Blue Zones Project? Its a community-wide initiative designed to make healthy choices easier. It encourages sustainable changes in our built environment and social networks, often suggesting policy changes involving worksites, schools, restaurants, grocery stores and neighborhoods. People living in Blue Zones communities can enjoy lower health care costs, improved productivity and an overall higher quality of life as they live, work, learn, worship and grow. The program is based on principles identified during an eight-year worldwide longevity study commissioned by What if Collier could become a Blue Zone?The David Lawrence Center partners with the International Mental Health Research Organization to host the Sound Minds Music Festival & Mental Health Symposium on Saturday, Nov. 15, at Naples Botanical Garden. The Naples Children & Education Foundation is a sponsor. Sound Minds is modeled after IMHROs successful Music Festival for Brain Health that has taken place every year for the past 20 years at Staglin Family Vineyard in Napa Valley. The inaugural Naples symposium will be from 1-3 p.m. and will feature nationally renowned scientists, local experts and mental-health advocates for early detection and intervention of brain disorders. Attendees will learn how to recognize early signs of mental illness in youth and improve patients o utcomes. Speakers include: Carrie Bearden, Ph.D, professor in the departments of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences and psychology at UCLA; Scott Russo, Ph.D., assistant professor of neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Scott Haltzman, senior psychiatrist, outpatient medical services, at the David Lawrence Center; and Brandon Staglin, mental-health advocate/consumer and director of marketing communications for both IMHRO and the Staglin Family Vineyard. FOX4 News anchor Patrick Nolan will emcee and moderate a question-and-answer session. After the symposium, ticketholders will enjoy a private reception, wine tasting and concert at 3 p.m. with performances by local artists Alex Dean, Chloe and John Bowlin. Tickets are $125. VIP admission for $1,000 includes dinner at Windstar on Naples Bay with wine pairings from the Staglin Family Vineyard. Sponsorship packages are available. Proceeds from sponsorships and ticket sales will allow the symposium portion of the event to be free to the public and help spread awareness to students, mental-health and health care practitioners, concerned citizens, consumers and supporters. Additionally, proceeds also will be shared between David Lawrence Center and IMHRO to provide mental-health and substance-abuse services to the community and fund neuropsychiatric research initiatives. The symposium is open to the public, but registration is required. Tickets are required for the concert and dinner. Call the David Lawrence Foundation at 304-3505 or visit davidlawrencecenter.org.

During the next several months, you will hear a lot more about the Blue Zones Project and our concerted community effort to enhance the wellness and well being of our citizens. Wellbeing is a measure of a persons overall physical, social and emotional health. A higher level of well being leads to lower health care costs, higher productivity and increased economic vitality, and offers benefits for everybody.

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickIf youre online, youve seen them: the social media rumors, emails or blog posts claiming that particular products are hazardous to a pets health. Whether were talking foods, treats, cleaning products or pharmaceuticals, there are likely stories floating around that one or another of them causes illness or death. They sound alarming. But are they true? The Internet is wonderful, but not everything you read on it is fair or even factual. Heck, I read things about myself on the Internet all the time that arent true. How can you know if what youre reading is accurate? We have some advice and sources that will help you separate fact from fiction. So forget the panic: Here are five ways to avoid the spin and get the real skinny. Go to the source. By law, drug manufacturers must report all potential adverse effects to the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA defines an adverse drug experience as any unfavorable or unintended reaction after a drug is administered, whether or not that reaction is believed to be related to the product and whether or not the drug was given as instructed on the label. You can find adverse drug experience reports for veterinary drugs online at www.fda.gov. Each pharmaceutical company is required to conduct a thorough investigation of all adverse events, says my colleague Michael Dryden, professor of veterinary parasitology at Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. In these investigations, all relevant information is obtained, such as the medical history of the animal, clinical pathology reports, toxicological data for the product, necropsy reports and any other available information. This information is used to help determine the likelihood that a product is linked to the reported event in the patient. Contact the company directly. Most manufacturers provide a toll-free number on their packaging. In fact, food manufacturers are required to provide contact information on the label. Ask what is being done to investigate the situation. Go to neutral fact-checking sites. Neutral sites arent associated with or supported by manufacturers, and their only goal is to seek the truth. You might say that they dont have a dog in this hunt. These independent sites present evidence and facts to verify or debunk all kinds of rumors. They look for confirmation from authoritative sources and list their references. Reputable sites that often address pet-related e-rumors include snopes.com and truthorfiction.com. Dont confuse correlation with causation. In other words, coincidence happens. Heres what my colleague Tony Johnson, DVM, an emergency medicine and critical-care specialist, has to say about that: If a dog or cat is diagnosed with an infection or cancer or organ failure, and the owner had used a certain product in the preceding days or weeks, its human nature to want to associate something new with the outcome. It looks bad, but theres not necessarily any correlation. For more about how to distinguish between correlation and causation, especially in the context of science and health, take a look at George Mason Universitys website stats.org, which addresses the subject in a way thats easy to understand. Talk to your veterinarian. Your pets veterinarian is trained in looking at data and has experience with many different pets and the products made for them. Theres no doubt that adverse drug events can occur, especially in pets with underlying health conditions or other unknown causes of sensitivity, and that foods or other products can become contaminated. When you have concerns, your veterinarian is the best person to help you sort out reality from rumor and science from spin. Before becoming alarmed by what you read online, get a reality check to make sure the information isnt misleading, or just plain wrong. PET TALESTrue or false?How to find the facts when you encounter Internet rumors Pets of the Week>> Asher is a handsome, 1-year-old domestic shorthair who loves to give and receive affection. >> Jenny is a 6-month-old rat terrier mix who weighs a little more than 4 pounds.

CALL TODAY! 24-HOUR SERVICE: 239.438.6918 THE DIVA DIARIESTheres something about Renee If you were within a stones throw of the Internet last week, or if you happened to stroll past a television or even glance at a magazine in the checkout line, then you are fully aware that a good part of the world momentarily lost their minds when Academy Award-winning actress Renee Zellweger showed up at a red carpet event in Hollywood with a new face. Like many of you, I was rather shocked at her appearance and not, mind you, because she looked bad, because truly, both of her faces, the old one and the new one, are quite lovely. I was shocked because she was unrecognizable. I mean, yes, if you squinted your eyes, concentrated really hard and stared at her picture long enough, you could sort of see a resemblance. Like, if Renee had a cousin named Heather, this new face might look like Heather. Wondering if I was the only one who noticed, I posted a link with photos of Renees new face on my Facebook page. Almost 100 of my equally kerfluffled friends commented with remarks ranging from OMG! to Noooooo! and Whyyyyyy!? And then there were a few who made us all feel terrible by pointing out that Renees new face looks fabulous and that we shouldnt judge or be mean-spirited which I totally get, but there was no judgment on my part, just surprise. And I think the surprise is warranted. I mean, if your husband or wife or best friend showed up one day with a new face, would you be expected to ignore it and carry on because screaming Whered your face go??!! would be all judgy and mean? Since the Renee Face-Gate controversy, Ive come across a myriad of articles, essays and blogs about how we should be focusing not on the actress new face, but on her talent and heart and charm and all, and that by expressing shock over her new face were being shallow. But, see, thats just the thing: Renees talent and heart and charm are why we feel like were on a first-name basis with her. Shes the plucky single mom in Jerry Maguire, shes the lovable and relatable Bridget Jones and shes the cute and clever Roxie Hart in Chicago. As the movie-going public, we recognize these characters and more because they all have Renees old face. I noticed, via Facebook, that my younger friends in their 20s were having a harder time with the change than the rest of us. One even bemoaned, I grew up watching your face, Renee. Whyd you change!? as if Renee could hear her plea. Thats when it occurred to me that we, especially the millennials among us, havent really seen the faces of celebrities change. With Botox, fillers, nips and tucks, actual aging barely happens anymore. For instance, her face has lost some baby fat, but Nicole Kidman looks the same now as she did 25 years ago in Days of Thunder. Same with Sandra Bullock: She looks exactly the same only tighter. Of course, theres huge pressure on actors and actresses to maintain their same, easily recognizable faces because when they change, we notice. Even when Jennifer Lawrence dyes her hair dark for a film or Brad Pitt grows a scraggly moustache for a role, we notice. We comment. We wage an opinion. Actors can toil away on the stage, loving their craft and never having to worry about flashbulbs popping on the red carpet, but there seems to be a trade-off when you become a movie star. Part of the good about that trade-off is that we notice the way a star looks; and part of the bad is that we notice the way a star looks. Some 600-kajillion plastic surgeons on the Internet weighed in on Renees new face and came to the collective conclusion (even though none of them have actually met her) that the lady has aged, lost a bit of weight, likely had her eyes done and possibly had some injections and fillers. And while Im sure well all get used to her new face, its perfectly natural to notice that its not her old face. When I was just a wee diva, I dreamt of fame and fortune and red carpets and Oscars. But as time has gone by, Im not sure all the ruckus would have been worth it besides, Im deathly afraid of needles. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Their workdays pass as they pivot from one technology tool to the next, wrangling websites, apps and plug-ins to stay on top of the market, pitch sales and close deals. A Realtor juggling act may look like this: Sign on to a CMS (Content Management System) to manage their websites. Turn to Google AdWords or Zillow to chase down generated leads. Send individual emails through servers such as Gmail. Send mass emails through applications such as MailChimp. Feed listing updates to prospects through MLS (Multiple Listing Service) or IDX (Internet Data Exchange) systems. Cultivate client relationships through a CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) such as Nutshell, Salesforce or Top Producer. Store contracts on hard drives or up in the cloud through Dropbox or Google Drive the technology menagerie goes on and on. A Southwest Florida-born technology called REfindly looks to revolutionize real estate by giving all of these tasks one home, one system where agents can generate, engage and convert sales, affording them the gift of time, so they can sell more. Some Realtors and technologists say its the only system they know that encompasses everything. Like with any new product, its challenge will be to demonstrate its unique abilities in a market already saturated with software solutions. The brainchild of tech innovator Ryan Tremblay, REfindly technology, as in Real Estate RE created, aligns a CRM service with an IDX service. Soon as a lead enters the system, email or text alerts go out to the agent. The CRM nurtures communication between the two. The IDX enables users to search properties. Indexed by Google, it steers traffic to the agent or brokerage to stir up more leads. Listings are refreshed twice an hour.

There have been some hiccups along the way but not too many. After five years and seven months of an equity bull market, investors are now scratching their heads. They are wondering what comes next: more of a bear or resumption of a bull equity market? Many equity and bond investors have stayed the course through several years. They have benefited from the world central banks many aggressive steps to lower rates/keep rates low. These investors will go through some mental wrangling, but, as these investors are accustomed to the Federal Reserves and other central banks prior curative actions, they are inclined to side with the power of these banks, particularly the Fed, to fix any future market and future economic ills. Dont fight the Fed! is a classic 50 year-plus investment expression. In the current case, it begs the question, What is the Fed to do next? The Fed has been planning to end its purchases of longer-term U.S. government debt. The several programs of Quantitative Easings have collectively been a gargantuan monetary program; the Fed has purchased trillions of U.S. government debt. There is little investment banter about the end of the QE program. The reason that the end of QE government bind purchases is being ignored is: 1) Many investors do not believe that these programs were important to the financial markets, both in the market valuation of debt or equities. 2) Everyone is focused on the Fed funds rate (the rate of interest charged by the Fed to member banks). They want to know the when and how much this rate might increase. So, when that end of QE does come, it will be interesting to see how the markets respond particularly the bond market. When QE ends, will rates immediately jump higher and bonds loose value? Will equities loose value? Equity investors often think that the world revolves around the equity market, as it makes the headlines and captures much of the jabberwocky of cable news programs. But in fact, the worlds financial markets, including equity markets, revolve around the global debt markets. Thats simply due to the sheer size of the debt market and that the cost of capital impacts the bottom-line profits of corporations. The stats show that the total size of the world stock market capitalizations closed 2013 at $54.6 trillion, which was only 25 percent of the total world market capitalization the rest being bonds. The bond market is larger than the stock market for various reasons. Whereas only corporations issue stocks, governments and corporations both issue fixed income securities. The U.S. Treasury is the largest issuer of bonds worldwide. (Martin Armstrongs Blog, Oct. 22, 2014) Mr. Armstrong is rightly concerned that a rise in interest rates will end the bond bull market and may result in the popping of a global bond bubble. It is the opinion of many that the sovereign debt crisis has not gone away, has not been solved, and will ultimately return to a crisis state in the respective countries government debt markets. So two factors weigh heavily on the fate of bonds: possible increase in rates by the Fed and governmental bind crisis brewed across the Atlantic. Sometimes equity markets can take a huge hit and the economy can continue without a depression. Just take a look at Japans correction, which took 81 percent off the peak valuation for the Nikkei 225 (Dec. 29, 1989 to March 10, 2009). Take a look at China. The Shanghai Composite Index is still down 62 percent from its 2007 peak, but the Chinese economy has continued to grow at very high rates, often above 7 percent since 2007. How could such equity drops not have caused a depression? Because the bull market in bonds was still intact and these countries and their corporations could still borrow money and grow their way out of their market ills. But a huge drop in the bond market can cause a depression. It is Mr, Armstrongs position that the 1929 and ensuing years drop in bond valuations created the Depression. Clearly it would have been rough sledding with just a collapsed equity market. But an economy can find its way out of a crestfallen equity market if there is availability of capital and reasonable cost of capital. No one knows the future, the past never exactly repeats itself and this present is so unlike the past that there would be no way to connect prior economic dots of information that predict the future. We have never had a set of circumstances as we currently have. Investors should talk to their advisers and figure some strategies to withstand a bond bear market. It might be that your advisor will create a laddered portfolio of differing maturities. But you will still have to decide if you want that laddered portfolio to be in government bonds, corporate bonds, mortgages or bank CDs, etc. We just do not know the last chapter of this current economic cycle and you should prepare yourself for a variety of market changes.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCT. 30-NOV. 5, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY If someone keeps coming back to the site, visiting the same property, the system sends a message to the individual, Noticed your interest in this property. Would you like to know more? The system creates a task for an agent to call a prospect, should three emails go unopened. Mr. Tremblay says all the parts were built to interact, to work together, to click, to make better agents, save them from the grunt work, help them make more sales and give them an after-hours life, keeping activities transparent for brokers, all while keeping in touch with the consumer, the home buyer, who may be making the most important investment of his or her life. Our focus was to bring a tech solution to the real estate market, a complete solution, Mr. Tremblay says. REfindly works side-by-side with Lu Doan, CEO of Agent Shield, a service that brings real estate agents and developers together to market and sell new construction homes; and Jason Dolle, president of Testimonial Tree, a service that curates consumer testimonials online to leverage business. The tech collective has formed Sunset Coast Technology Consortium, a group dedicated to promoting the ingenuity of local tech firms. The group says REfindlys debut was a hit at the Florida Association of Realtors conference. We had two iMac computers to demonstrate the software, but so many people wanted to see the technology we had to deploy additional laptops to respond to demand, says Matthew Crowson, REfindly data scientist. People were literally lined up. We had to start making reservations. After two days of non-stop demonstrations to representatives from more than 100 companies, there were still people wanting a demonstration. Deals were signed at and after the state conference. Next up: the company heads to the National Association of Realtors conference taking place this November in New Orleans. Real-world implementation Tiffany McQuaid, broker and owner of McQuaid & Company Real Estates Services in Naples, will be at the national event. She attends every year to keep up with changes in the industry. She sees technology as necessary, but fears too many automated advances might lose the vital relationship between agent and client. I know technology is where the world is going, but I still think people like people, Ms. McQuaid says. She points to self-checkout aisles as an analogy: Technology replaced the clerk, but these aisles are not wildly popular because people still want to interact with people. Ms. McQuaid has not seen REfindly technology and cannot speak to how it differs from appFiles, the technology her business uses to manage paperwork, emails and client relations. Jerry Hawes, a broker doing business in Broward County and South Palm Beach County, has hired the REfindly team to build his website, believing accessibility to information in the age of information will make a difference for his business, Hawes Real Estate. I anticipate a user-friendly interface that will allow people to easily search for homes in the areas they desire without having to muddle through some of the larger search engines, he says. I truly believe the user-friendly site is going to be the difference in setting apart successful real estate brokerages. Ramping up around the state, REfindly has garnered businesses in Sarasota, Jacksonville and Fort Lauderdale. Outside the state, sales have spread to California, the Carolinas, Maryland and Louisiana. Mr. Dolle, the man behind Testimonial Tree, says it makes sense for the impetus of real estate technology to stem from Southwest Florida. We were the epicenter of the boom and the bust, he says. We were leading the market in second-home sales, crazy sales, we were in the middle of it. We were one of the first markets to bust and one of the first to come out of it, too. The boom and the bust forced people to be inventive. Mr. Doan, the man behind Agent Shield, says REfindly success shows the national shift in technology: Techies are no longer creating in a bubble, perfecting a project for years before presenting it to the world, but turning out a product quick-and-dirty to get it in the hands of a test group, to create, cut and polish the features that are truly needed. Downing Frye Realty served as a guinea pig, helping customize REfindly. Jesse McGreevy, leader of the Domain Realty Group of Downing Frye, speaks to what life was like before and after REfindly. Before we had the REfindly technology we were bogged down with a lot of busy work, administrative hack work such as manually distributing leads that came in through the website, having to cross reference different things throughout several databases, he says. I spent probably half my day doing follow-ups with agents rather than 20 to 30 minutes a day doing follow ups with agents because everything is accountable in the system, everything is transparent and I can see whats going on, on a dayto-day basis now, rather than having to go through and laboriously check those agents, what theyve done and follow-up reporting, so its made me a heck of a lot more efficient in terms of day-to-day operations. Downing Frye is now transitioning to REfindly company-wide, with more than 600 agents from Punta Gorda to Marco Island. Mike Hughes, broker/vice president at Downing Frye, anticipates more lead generation and more lead captures moving properties faster. We got very lucky to find a local company set up with the expertise to develop such first-class technology, he says. We looked all over the state. We looked all over the country. To have one right under out nose was a pleasant surprise. REVVINGFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTORyan Tremblay designed REfindly to integrate several software solutions in one place. DOLLE DOAN
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCT. 30-NOV. 5, 2014 B5 How to tell and what to do if your company is in bad mood SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIs your company in a bad mood? The signs arent always overt. People arent biting each others heads off or glaring sullenly across the conference table. Instead, it feels like everyone is just coasting. Theyre not cage-rattlers and idea-sharers; theyre yes men and passive compliers. And if you could be the proverbial fly on the wall (instead of the boss in the hall), you suspect youd hear far more bitching and blaming than the faked enthusiasm you usually hear. Thats bad mood in workplace parlance. And Michael Houlihan says your apathetic clockpunchers are the creations of a culture thats set up to squelch their inner entrepreneur. Bad mood comes from employees believing their best days are behind them, not ahead of them, Mr. Houlihan says. Hes the co-author along with Bonnie Harvey of The Entrepreneurial Culture: 23 Ways to Engage and Empower Your People and the New York Times bestseller The Barefoot Spirit: How Hardship, Hustle, and Heart Built Americas #1 Wine Brand. Of course, he adds, its culture that creates that belief and its leaders who create the culture. The tactics outlined in The Entrepreneurial Culture echo the methods by which the authors ran Barefoot Wine making sure its leadership practices, compensation structure and processes were set up in a way that kept employees fully engaged, empowered and entrepreneurial. Of course, before you can shift a bad mood, you need to know you have one. Here are some red flags to look for: Employees are paid for attendance, not performance. In organizations that are overshadowed by bad moods, most employees come to work each day and perform the tasks within their job description, but no more. At Barefoot, we found that the key to turning worker bees into solutions-oriented entrepreneurs was simplifying our structure into just two divisions sales and sales support and linking everyones pay to the performance of sales, Ms. Harvey explains. When we began giving our sales support people bonuses based on quarterly sales amounts, Barefoot became more efficient, more responsive and even closer-knit. Everyone hides behind their screens. If you notice that your employees prefer to do business through a computer or smartphone screen, even when they dont have to, its cause for concern. Very possibly, they feel that your company and their positions in it just arent worth the extra time and energy that a face-to-face meeting (or even a phone call) would require. At first you might have to require or strongly encourage your people to meet with certain clients, vendors, etc.while leading through your own example, of course, Ms. Harvey says. But over time, your employees will begin to develop strong, mutually fulfilling business relationships, and theyll probably also see how much more effective communicating in real time can be. Theres an attitude, but it doesnt involve gratitude. Even if theyd never say so, workers want to know that theyre doing well and that their efforts are valued, Mr. Houlihan points out. Make sure they know that you have noticed their efforts and that youre grateful for their knowledge and help. People cant seem to execute. Take a look in the mirror and make sure you arent using a leadership style that is keeping people from getting things done. Do you find it difficult to delegate important projects? asks Houlihan. Do you insist on running every new idea through legal before letting an employee pursue it? Are you a micromanager? If so, step back and show your people that you trust them to make important decisions and do important work. Nobody bothers to contribute new ideas. If most of your employees ideas get stuck in compliance limbo or are slapped down (or appropriated by) supervisors, even the most innovative employees will eventually become discouraged or frustrated to the point of not speaking up with future ideas. Its every man for himself. Generally, all but the most frustrated, burnedout employees can manage to turn on the charm when theyre interacting with clients so dont assume that youre worry-free because your team was chipper during a sales pitch. A much better way to gauge your organizations overall mood is to observe how employees interact with each other. Employees who arent invested in your organizations future usually wont go out of their way to give pointers to the new hire or proofread a colleagues report, for example, Ms. Harvey says. If thats the case in your company, we suggest that you start cultivating more team spirit by starting with new employees. Match them up with more experienced mentors who can advise, teach, challenge and encourage them. The rookie will appreciate the personalized guidance and will be encouraged to form meaningful bonds with his or her colleagues right out of the gate. Plus, all but the most cynical veterans will soften when they see how fulfilling it can be to pass on their knowledge and expertise. The bottom line, Ms. Harvey concludes, is that cultivating a good mood in your organization is the key to unleashing a transformative entrepreneurial spirit in your people. www. wa-cr .comCall us today to SELL / LEASE your property!

Email business meeting announcements to email@example.com.I trace my roots back to 1947 in South Korea, to a company that in its early days sold face cream and toothpaste. My brand name today suggests relatively high-end products and my slogan proclaims that Lifes Good, but at one time I went by the cuter moniker of Lucky Goldstar. Today I offer a wide range of products, including televisions, DVD players, music systems, security systems, smartphones, refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, battery packs for electric vehicles and much more. I bought Zenith Electronics in the 1990s. By 2009, I was the second-largest LCD TV provider worldwide. Who am I?Know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Market Drops Create OpportunitiesA falling stock market reflects many shares being sold and many people worrying or panicking. Savvy investors remember the words of Warren Buffett, though, who advocates being fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful. With the S&P 500 having dropped more than 7 percent from its mid-September high, many are clearly fearful and this is a good time to be greedy. Here are some stocks to research further for possible berths in your portfolio: Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) has a monster balance sheet, with about $135 billion in net cash and marketable securities. Apples business has shown remarkable resilience, with its brand, software, app ecosystem and product quality all coming together to make premium products that, year after year, customers seemingly cant get enough of. Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) is a cashgenerating machine, producing more than $25 billion in free cash flow annually. Its Windows Phone market share, Surface tablet sales and even Xbox sales may be underwhelming, but most of Microsofts revenue comes from Windows and less highprofile offerings such as computing platforms and business products and services. Gilead Sciences (Nasdaq: GILD) leads in HIV treatment. The biotech company recorded $9 billion in HIV drug sales last year and markets five separate products. Its Sovaldi hepatitis C treatment is selling briskly and generated $5 billion in sales in the first half of the year. Its Harvoni drug (which includes Sovaldis key ingredient) just won FDA approval and could quickly become the planets top-selling hepatitis C drug. Celgene (Nasdaq: CELG) is another big biotech concern. Its cancer drugs Abraxane and Revlimid have been helping drive double-digit revenue growth, and the company expects its newest product, psoriasis drug Otezla, to generate sales topping $1 billion within the next three years. All told, Celgenes pharma sales are on track to more than double within three to four years, and it has some of the best management in biotech.Fool disclosure: The Motley Fool recommends Apple, Celgene and Gilead Sciences, and it owns shares of Apple, Gilead and Microsoft. Gain Left on the TableI bought shares of a groundbreaking genomics company in several installments, until I had accumulated $6,000 worth. That was a large sum for me then perhaps half of my portfolio. Over about two years, I watched the stock feverishly, got my parents involved, and spent hours a day on what was then perhaps the busiest Motley Fool discussion board. On the best day, my stake skyrocketed 40 percent and put me up to $110,000. As I recall, it never went higher and eventually I sold in despair, netting a 25 percent loss.I have a standing promise to myself that if I ever have another massive one-day gain on a stock, Im taking the gain off the table. Ive done well enough since then to be on track with my retirement goals, but Ive never had another such gain. B.C.T., Des Moines, IowaThe Fool Responds: Selling isnt an all-or-nothing decision. Some investors like to sell a portion of their shares to lock in some gains when theyve reached certain levels. You might sell all, but you could miss out on further gains. Reap Dividends From SmartphonesYou may not have heard of Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM), but its technology is probably in that smartphone in your pocket.Qualcomm is one of the worlds largest chip vendors and is the leading vendor of smartphone-related chips, selling applications processors, modems, connectivity chips and more at a wide range of price points and to a wide range of smartphone vendors. It also owns thousands of patents and collects about 30 percent of its revenue via royalties and licensing fees. Sales of 3G and 4G LTE devices are growing, and Qualcomm is collecting a percentage of their selling prices. As long as the smartphone boom continues, Qualcomms business should benefit and smartphones are still selling like hotcakes in the U.S. and abroad. (China is one of Qualcomms largest markets and accounted for nearly half of all the companys 2013 revenue.)The company is more than smartphones, though. Its looking to sell chips to carmakers, for example, and aims to support connectivity for wearable technology. Financially sound, Qualcomm has a fortress of a balance sheet, with more than $18 billion in cash and marketable securities on the books. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the mid-teens, revenue growing by more than 20 percent annually and a dividend yield near 2.2 percent, Qualcomm is an attractive portfolio candidate. I built my first car in 1904. You may know me for my fancy cars, but Im an industrial powerhouse, providing power for aircraft, ships and land applications. My engines power more than 30 commercial aircrafts, including the new Airbus A350 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. I have almost 13,000 engines in service in the civil aerospace market. I have 4,000 marine customers and equipment installed on more than 30,000 vessels worldwide, including those of 70 navies. Ive sold thousands of gas turbines, have more than 50 years of experience with nuclear power and employ more than 17,000 engineers. Who am I? (Answer: Rolls-Royce) Put Prices in ContextQIs a company priced at $50 per share in better shape than a company with a $10 share price? W.D., Joliet, IllinoisANot necessarily. By itself, a companys share price actually tells you very little, so never examine it in isolation. Lots of other things need to be taken into account, such as how many shares there are (many companies have millions, and others have billions), how much income the company is earning per share, and how the price relates to the companys earnings, cash flow, growth rates and other measures. If a company is saddled with a lot of debt and its sales have been shrinking, its not the most attractive investment, no matter its price. If an outfit with a $10 or $50 or $100 stock price is growing rapidly, increasing its profit margins and gaining market share in its industry, its well worth considering, unless its stock price has zoomed beyond its intrinsic worth. Remember that a $3 stock can really be worth $1, and a $50 stock might be worth $300. Dig deep to learn more instead of drawing hasty conclusions. ***QWhat is arbitrage? M.E., Mechanicville, New YorkAIts the practice of profiting from price differences in different markets. Imagine that stock in Porcine Aviation (ticker: PGFLY) is trading for $25 per share in the United States and $25.10 per share in England. If you simultaneously buy shares in America and sell the same number of shares in England, youve earned a profit of 10 cents per share (not counting commission costs). This may not seem like much, but those who engage in arbitrage are usually large institutional investors with millions to invest in big positions. Got a question for the Fool?

This penthouse pad in hip, happening Bayfront will rock you right out of it. Not only retirees, but youngat-heart families and couples can have the best of two worlds: Bayfronts urban flair, and the laid-back resort lifestyle the Naples beach community is known for. One of the choicest in Bayfront, this two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,518-squarefoot residence has beautiful Naples Bay views and a southeast exposure. It was gutted and renovated this year. The open floor plan is appointed with exotic walnut acacia wood floors, GE Caf series appliances, custom kitchen cabinets, a master bath with natural stone and high-end Kohler fixtures, and upgraded PGI hurricane glass doors and windows. A day at Bayfront might begin with a stroll downstairs for breakfast at E.J.s, a workout at the onsite-gym or perhaps a swim in a rooftop pool or a game of tennis on one of the rooftop courts. Biking to the beach or pier is another popular pastime for Bayfront residents and their guests. In the evening, rent a boat at the marina for a sunset cruise, and return to dine at a sports club, jazz club, steakhouse or fine-dining restaurant. This penthouse residence is listed at $875,000.

The new Gulfshore Opera, headed by soprano Steffanie Pearce, the former artistic director at Opera Naples, launches its inaugural season with three performances of Viva Verdi A Big Opera Concert across Southwest Florida. Opening Thursday, Nov. 6, at North Naples United Methodist Church, the concert moves to the Charlotte Performing Arts Center in Punta Gorda on Saturday, Nov. 8, and to Harborside Event Center in Fort Myers on Sunday, Nov. 9. Ms. Pearce says the new company has presented her with the opportunity to expand operas reach beyond Collier County to the rest of Southwest Florida. Accessible opera is built into the Gulfshore Opera business model as one of the companys core values, she adds. Most of the inaugural seasons 11 concerts will be presented in at least two counties, in both large and small venues. Volume ticket sales, Ms. Pearce hopes, will allow Gulfshore Opera to balance what is usually a dependence on patrons to meet financial obligations. Tickets typically will range from $25$60, she says. Im very excited to have the ability and the support to follow my instincts for my business plan, she says. Im grateful to my advisers and supporters who have gotten me through the transition. One component of the Gulfshore Opera outreach plan is already operational in the form of the Harmony Choir, a childrens ensemble built on the El Sistema model of character development through classical music. Ms. Pearce approached local churches and other organizations to help recruit young voices. Harmony Choir goes well beyond just exposing kids to the art form, Ms. Pearce says. It is a social program that uses classical music as the conduit to help kids who would typically not be able to afford private lessons to explore creativity and, more importantly, to gain self-esteem.

We Guarantee Your Results Before AfterPhotos courtesy of Eric Bachelor, MD, FACS SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS The butcher who saved Paris In Paris, where Im four weeks into a five-week stay, an epidemic is circulating. Known as Paris Syndrome, the calamity afflicts tourists, especially those from Asian countries. At one point, its rumored, the Japanese embassy had to run flights to Tokyo to evacuate the victims. What exactly is Paris Syndrome? A psychological state brought on by the realization that Paris, at times, is not actually that nice. It goes by another name: crushing disappointment. So far, Ive managed not to be evacuated. Although Ive come pretty close. Like the recent morning when the Metro police stopped to ask if I had my Metro ticket and I, being a good and litter-phobic American, had already thrown mine away. The Metro officer pulled out his notebook and proceeded to write me a fine for 50 euros. I pleaded with him. Look I have unused Metro tickets. He took one of the tickets and turned it over, inspecting. OK, he said. That reduces your fine to 33 euros. Thirty-three euros? For supposedly jumping the turnstile, an infraction I didnt commit? I could see why Japanese tourists were fleeing in droves. A friend told me before my trip that she found Paris less charming when she visited the city alone, and until my own stay I didnt understand what she meant. Now I do. Its hard to look a place in the face for five weeks without being disappointed, and its even harder when youre alone, without a lover or a friend to soften the effect. This is why I had nearly given up on this city, a place I had long dreamed about, when late on a Monday afternoon I stumbled into my neighborhood butcher shop. Id been there once before on a frenzied afternoon when men and women coming home from work elbowed each other to get to the counter and my own small voice disappeared in the ferocious crowd. But on this particular day the shop stood empty except for a handsome man behind the counter. He wore a white apron and a grin that balanced between charming and rakish. I took my time choosing what I wanted, and when I asked for two tomatoes stuffed with ground beef, I confessed that I wasnt sure how to cook them. Well, that, said the butcher, is complicated. First, you have to start by inviting me to dinner. I blushed. Next time, I guess, I stammered. The butcher smiled. Watch out. Ill take you up on that. The next day, in the late afternoon, when my stomach started to rumble and it was time to think about dinner, I found myself wandering back to the butcher shop. Once again, I was the only customer. And once again, the good-looking man in the white apron flirted outrageously until I blushed and stuttered. Now this has become our daily routine. Each time, I find myself on the street afterward, clutching my dinner and smiling a silly grin. The magic of Paris, it seems, has returned. Who knew that the antidote to the Paris Syndrome was right in my neighborhood? Just next to the stuffed tomatoes.

Ms. Bakers The Flick won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2013 Obie Award for Playwrighting. I am thrilled to bring such a smart and witty comedy to our stage, Kristen Coury, Gulfshore Playhouse founder and producing artistic director, says about Body Awareness. It touches upon struggles that many families face every day. Regardless of circumstance, many of our patrons will relate to it. The story is set in the fictional small town of Shirley, Vt., where Phyllis, a college campus organizer for Body Awareness Week (whose topics range from a dance troupe of refugee Palestinian children to an eating disorder seminar) lives with her partner, Joyce, a highschool social studies teacher, and Joyces 21-year-old son, Jared, from a prior marriage. Jared shows several symptoms of Asperger syndrome but refuses to see a therapist for treatment. Their houseguest is a middle-aged photographer named Frank Bonitatibus, whose artistic photos of nude women offend Phyllis. Franks presence exacerbates the already existing tension between the three of them, and when Joyce agrees to pose for one of Franks pictures, this threatens her relationship with Phyllis. Meanwhile, Jared, a self-described autodidact who works at McDonalds until he successfully tries to get fired because he hates his co-workers, asks Frank for advice on how to attract women. Cody Nickell, Gulfshore Playhouse artistic associate, directs the cast that consists of Kate Eastwood Norris as Phyllis, Julia Brothers as Joyce, Michael Pantozzi as Jared and Eric Hissom as Mr. Bonitatibus. Gulfshore Playhouse audiences will remember Ms. Norris for her work with the companys New Works Festival in 2013 and 2014. The winner of two Helen Hayes Awards and a Barrymore Award, she has appeared in productions around the country at theaters including Arena Stage, Folger Theatre, Woolly Mammoth Theatre, Round House Theatre, Berkeley Repertory Theatre and Actors Theatre of Louisville. Ms. Brothers returns to The Norris Center stage after playing the role of Inspector Goring in Ken Ludwigs The Games Afoot. She appeared on Broadway in Relatively Speaking, three oneact comedies by Ethan Coen, Elaine May and Woody Allen directed by John Turturro. Mr. Pantozzi has worked as an actor with collaborators ranging from Edward Albee to College Humor. He will next appear in Alison Bagnalls independent comedy feature, Funny Bunny. Mr. Hissom most recently appeared with Gulfshore Playhouse in last seasons production of David Mamets Race. Other recent credits include The Tempest at American Repertory Theatre, the national tour of The Thirty-Nine Steps and Glengarry Glen Ross at Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota. After Body Awareness, the Gulfshore Playhouse season continues with Jacob Marleys Christmas Carol, Christopher Durangs Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, The Butcher (a world premiere) and The Liar by David Ives. BODYFrom page 1There is a right way and a wrong way to live in the world, right? The things our parents and grandparents taught us, the things holy texts or religious leaders tell us, what we learned in philosophy classes or business ethics classes or feminist studies, from Oprah or Bill OReilly or Jon Stewart or Sean Hannity or Rachel Maddow, or from our favorite website dealing with our favorite subject, from our political leaders (well, maybe someday this will be true again) or from the amazing amount of books out there telling us how to live fuller, deeper, truer, righter, healthier, jazzier lives all have ideas about the correct way to live ones life. I am sure it is not lost on you, dear reader, that the above list is full of contradictions, and in fact some of you may be wanting to turn away from the rest of this letter because I invoked the names of the enemy to your view on the correct way to conduct oneself in the world. Alas, the world is complex and full of opposing and conflicting views. What is one to do in the face of that? Wouldnt it just be easier if everyone accepted our version of the correct path? These questions, these ideas, are why I love Annie Bakers play Body Awareness. The family at the center of the play is at a moment of crisis. Each of them is struggling with their own personal demons about the right way to be in the world, the right way to behave, the right way to be seen, the right way to look at others, the right way to ask for what you need, the right way to try to teach others to think the way you do. And part of the beauty of Ms. Bakers text is that ultimately, there might not really be a correct answer, but the struggle to get there is so full of humor and pathos and a sense that if we can get beyond ourselves and our own struggle and team up with other people to find connection in this world, the struggle to get to rightness might at least be manageable. This play rings so true to me, even though the family at the center of the play couldnt look more different from mine. I come from a pretty traditional (though certainly weird in our own ways) Southern family. There was a divorce, but it was pretty amicable, considering. There were remarriages and blending of families, but this all eventually felt normal to me, and the parents always tried (and mostly succeeded) to put the kids best interests first. The family in Body Awareness is so different from that. The young man, Jared, is an only child who still lives at home at 21 years old and is struggling with the possibility that he might have Asperger syndrome. His divorced mother now lives with her girlfriend or is partner the right word? Ah, dear reader, this depends on which character you ask a college professor who is righteously trying to teach the world about self-empowerment and how to get away from the white male gaze. So, yeah, this family feels very different from mine. But let me tell you, I identify with every one of their struggles, hopes and dreams. This is where beautiful writing and phenomenal acting come into play. They draw us in. They show us human beings with needs and wants, doubts and fears. Directing this play is a joy, because every time I try to steer the ship a certain way, or plumb the depths of emotion in a scene, or broaden the awareness of an actor about a certain moment, or layer in the comedy that connects it all together, both the script and the actors hold up under the scrutiny. This group of actors is one of the best I have ever worked with. They trust the play, their characters, each other and me. And they have the skills and technique to dive into these roles and bring them to brilliant life. And this play, it just keeps revealing itself. Every time I try to peel back another layer, it keeps giving and giving. And it keeps asking: Is there a right answer? Are there right answers to the questions of how best to live ones life? Of course. Did I learn some from my family? Yes. Have I tried to live by them and failed? Sometimes. Have I had other people try to force their version of right on me? Yes. Do the plays I work on and go see in my constant love affair with theater as a storytelling art form influence the way I think about right and wrong? Yes ... and sometimes no. Will this play show you the right way? I dont know. I dont think its trying to do that. Will it show you a set of beautiful people struggling just like we all do to try to figure that out? Yes. Maybe reflecting on that struggle, reflecting on the question Is there a right answer? is more important and much more powerful than actually knowing what the answers are. I hope you will join me for this beautiful exploration of humanity. Right or wrong?

Medically Approved.20 MINUTES A WEEK ALWAYS IN SHAPE! Naples CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE STARTER SESSION! ARTS COMMENTARYNaples Players show is Time well spentTime seems to stop when youre doing what you love. Youre in the zone, youre fully engaged. Everything else fades away. For photojournalist Sarah Goodwin, that happens when shes in a war zone halfway around the globe, taking images of famines, wars, bombing sites. With a click of the shutter, shes able to make time stand still, capturing images that let people understand the current atrocities of the world. As she puts it: We gather evidence to show the world. If it wasnt for people like me, who would know? Who would care? When Time Stands Still opens, Sarah (Victoria Diebler) is returning home to her Brooklyn loft. Her right leg is in a brace, her left arm in a sling. Red slashes mark her face where shrapnel sliced it. She survived a car bombing while covering the Iraq War, and is now on the long, challenging road of recuperation. Her lover, James (Anthony Renda), a writer, hovers anxiously about her. The two met years ago, covering the wars. He, too, is damaged by the work he does, though his scars are more psychic than physical. Now theyre both home and trying to heal. Time Stands Still is the opening play of the season in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre. Set designer Chase Lilienthal makes the most of the small space, recreating it into a Williamsburg loft but just like this production, parts of it are very good, while others dont quite reach those levels. The loft has exposed brick walls and a skylight, as well as huge barn-like doors. (But oddly, not an array of locks, which you would expect for a NewYork apartment.) Theres a wood plank floor, but then a horrible wall stage right thats painted a hospital green. Surely a photographer with her keen sense of color wouldnt have painted her wall a color most commonly found in institutions. Theres a Murphy bed, which makes sense, as space is at a premium in New Yorks small apartments, but it doesnt seem wide enough to hold a couple. And its maroon sheets look garish against the sickly green walls. The space doesnt feel lived-in at all. I find it difficult to believe its the loft of a writer and photographer. Where are the photographs or images on the walls? And no writer worthy of the name would own just a small handful of books on a shelf. I feel the same way about the couples relationship. There doesnt seem to be a connection there a connection that is now in contention, thats being reworked. Perhaps that will come in later productions. Both actors are excellent in their roles. Mr. Rendas James is intense, all darting eyes and anxiety (though he needs to project more when hes turned away from the audience). Ms. Diebler is perfect: Feisty and sarcastic, her character does not suffer fools easily. Theres a hardness about her Sarah, a necessary toughness to be able to do what she does for a living, but the actress brings a certain warmth and vulnerability to her character as well. So while shes prickly and tough talking, we also like her. Thats a difficult thing to pull off, but Ms. Diebler does it with finesse. (And it helps that in one scene costume designer Dot Auchmoody puts her in a white lace tealength dress with a pink ribbon at the waist. It is perfect for the occasion, and shows off Sarahs softer side.) The couples long-time friend Richard (Adam Shaver), a photo editor at a magazine, shows up to see how Sarah is doing but also, it seems, to show off his latest girlfriend, Mandy (Ellice McCoy), who is a generation younger than him. (As Sarah puts it, Mandy is so young shes embryonic.) Mandy admits Richard is only three years younger than her father, though she claims it doesnt bother her. Mandy is a lightweight, neither well versed in many things nor tested by lifes trials and difficulties. She doesnt get the others cultural or pop references. (Shes never heard of the movie Brazil, for example. When its explained to her, she dutifully writes down the name of the film in a pink notebook, using a pen that has a glittery feather at its other end. Its so junior high.) Shes oblivious, blurting out whatever shes thinking, however inappropriate. And she adores Richard, taking an almost worshipful attitude around him. She loves him because he has money and he takes care of her. Shes Richards midlife-crisis girlfriend. Ms. McCoy plays her well, and could even be more extreme. Mr. Shaver as Richard is very evenkeeled. I would have loved to see more dynamics from him. His character cant believe his luck, snagging a girlfriend so much younger. He doesnt care about having an intellectual equal; he just wants to have fun. Plus, he likes the way she looks on his arm: Shes eye candy, a trophy. But theyre happy and their happiness throws Sarah and James own relationship into relief. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies is good at this, at using another couple to make a pair take stock of their own relationship (he did this incredibly well in Dinner With Friends, about a couple whose break-up throws their best friends marriage into question). I wish director Chris Goutman had made this drama well, a little more dramatic, with more defined highs and lows. I wish there had been more subtext. I didnt always get the feeling that Sarah, James and Richard have been friends for a long time, that they had a history together. That connection, that familiarity, was missing for me. The timing also seemed off at times, with everything moving along at the same pace. And James has two important conversations with his back to half the audience, which dilutes the power of his words. I kept wishing I could see his face. If youve never seen Time Stands Still, this production is worth seeing. Its encouraging to see The Naples Players doing more modern fare and taking some risks. Mr. Margulies stuffs a lot into this play. Time Stands Still is about relationships, what were willing to give and what we want and need from them, how they change and how we have to constantly renegotiate and find our way. Its about not turning a blind eye to the atrocities of the world, but recording them so the world is aware of whats happening. And its about staying true to yourself and to your art, not allowing others to make you dilute what you do or compromise. When Ms. Dieblers Sarah fixes her eye on something and raises a camera to her face, I believe in what she sees. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Time Stands Still>> When: Through Nov. 15 >> Where: In the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre, Naples >> Cost: $30 >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org COURTESY PHOTO Sarah (Victoria Diebler) and James (Anthony Renda) welcome their longtime friend Richard (Adam Shaver) and his new girlfriend Mandy (Ellice McCoy) in a scene from Time Stands Still.

So make use of them in dealing with any challenge to your stated position. Also, open your mind to the offer of help from an unlikely source. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) There could still be a communication problem holding up the resolution of a troublesome situation. Stay with it, and eventually your message will get through and be understood. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A possible change in your workplace schedule might create a chaotic situation for a while. But once things begin to settle down, you might find that this could work to your advantage. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A recent job-linked decision might need to be reassessed because of the possibility of finding benefits you might have overlooked. Check out all related data to help in the search. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A personal situation you agreed to might not be as acceptable to the other person involved in the matter. Avoid pressuring and bullying. Instead, seek common ground by talking things through. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A rejection of your attempt to be friendly leaves you with two choices: Try again, or give up. If you want to make another effort, go slowly.

But a more settled period starts by midweek, allowing you to firm up your plan-making once and for all. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for touching peoples minds as well as their hearts.

CONTRACT BRIDGEA highly imaginative leadBY STEVE BECKERThis deal occurred in a national team championship more than 50 years ago. The star was Irving Kass, who transformed what appeared to be a sure loss of more than 1,300 points into an unexpected gain. Norths two-club bid was strong and artificial, and Souths three diamonds showed a positive response with a good diamond suit. The bidding then continued until South became declarer at six diamonds. Kass, West, was on lead against the slam. Had he led a heart, South would have made 12 tricks after the diamond finesse succeeded. And if Kass had led a club or a spade, declarer would have taken all the tricks. But Kass chose the extraordinary lead of the deuce of diamonds! This gave South pause for thought. He could not conceive that the lead was from the K-2 of diamonds, let alone that West had the king. From Souths viewpoint, therefore, playing low from dummy would lead to immediate defeat. East would presumably win the trick with the king, and his heart return would sink the contract. So declarer put up the ace of diamonds, hoping to drop the singleton king. When the king didnt appear, South still had another string to his bow. If East started with the K-10-5 of diamonds and at least three clubs, the slam could still be made. In that case, declarer could not be stopped from discarding all of his hearts, so he would lose only a trump trick regardless of how East defended. But when East ruffed the fourth club with the ten and South overruffed, so did Kass. His heart return then did South in. In finding the opening diamond lead, Kass took advantage of Souths five-club response to four notrump, indicating that he had no aces. Kass knew dummy would have the ace of diamonds and decided to put declarer to the test immediately.

Rated PG-13.Fury 1/2(Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal) As WWII draws to a close, the five members of a U.S. tank unit (Mr. Pitt, Mr. Lerman, Mr. Bernthal, Michael Pena, Shia LaBeouf) fight for survival and their humanity. The action is fierce, but the human element often glossed over in war movies is startlingly omnipresent to great effect. Rated R.The Judge (Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga) Hotshot defense attorney Hank Palmer (Mr. Downey) defends his smalltown judge father (Mr. Duvall) in a murder trial. Mr. Downeys charm is enough to keep you interested throughout this too-long legal drama. 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) Bo red 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).

YesThe term nightcrawler refers to videographers who listen to police scanners, race to crime scenes, film the action and then sell the footage to local news stations. The profession is not virtuous, but it is necessary for television news and proficient nightcrawlers can make a nice living at it. And when youre a sociopath who has no qualms about moving a dead body in order to get a better shot before the police arrive, as is the case in Nightcrawler, even better. The reason TV news covets the salacious material is because its ratings books suggest thats what people want to see. If it bleeds it leads, right? So TV producers feed the nightcrawling monster; the hell with positive stories of people doing good when theres a home invasion with three murders in an affluent neighborhood. These (seeming) facts are what Nightcrawler gets right: that a thief and sociopath like Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) can buy a camera and police scanner, find an accident/crime scene, record the footage and try to sell it to the news director (Rene Russo) at a local news station. With moderate success, he can afford to upgrade his equipment, hire help (Riz Ahmed) and learn business 101 basics online. Lou also discovers that orchestrating accident/crime scenes so he can be the first one there even before police can be much more lucrative. This is what puts the entire city of Los Angeles is at risk. Mr. Gyllenhaal is nothing short of creepy, and the film is better because of it. His calm, monotone voice and big eyes have a disarming effect, suggesting a gentility thats belied by his characters conduct. The truth is that Lou is an avaricious monster who will do or say anything to get what he wants in any aspect of his life. The night shooting in Los Angeles brings two recent films to mind, both of which showcased a superior visual pallet than whats seen here. Both Michael Manns Collateral (2004) and Nicholas Winding Refns Drive (2011) hit the right notes of coarseness and muted neon to almost make the city a character in itself. Here, though, director Dan Gilroy eschews the broader scope for a series of smaller moments that highlight Lous isolation but fail to paint L.A. as a city of sin. This is appropriate for the film, but one wonders how Lou wouldve handled being in real danger himself. Nightcrawler is a fascinating, dark and damning film that has the guts to say things we dont want to hear. Its grim subject matter suggests limited box office prospects, and in truth it will play better with the indie film crowd (it was the talk of the town at the Toronto Film Festival in September) than the mainstream. Its kind of ironic, actually: Viewers flock to this type of content on TV news, but when its presented in an unflattering way on a movie screen, theyre more likely to stay away. But this makes sense: For the masses, TV is in part for news and reality programming, while movies are for escapism. I hope this one receives enough acclaim to get people to open their eyes about what media theyre consuming, because anything programmed by a sociopath cant be good. dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> Nightcrawler is a Gilroy family passion project: Rene Russo is director Dan Gilroys wife, Dans brother Tony (The Bourne Legacy) is a producer, and Dans fraternal twin John (Warrior) is the editor. naplesfujiyama.com 239.261.4332TWO FOR $39.90HIBACHI DINNERS & FREE BOTTLE OF WINE Located at:2555 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103Offering the Ultimate in Early or Late Dining!

Authors and dates are: Jan. 12: Ron Powers, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Flags of Our Fathers, a chronicle of six men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima. The book was also made into a movie. Feb. 2: Lawrence Goldstone, author of Birdmen, the story of the intense rivalry that fueled the rise of American aviation. Feb. 16: David O. Stewart, lawyer-turnedauthor of American Emperor: Aaron Burrs Challenge to Jeffersons America. April 13: Walter Kirn, author of Blood Will Out, a memoir of his friendship with the imposter and convicted murderer Clark Rockefeller, and Up in the Air, made into a movie starring George Clooney. Friends of the Library offered two nonfiction author lectures earlier this year to complement its popular Nick Linn Lecture Series, which features fiction authors; and its annual Bagels & Book Clubs Breakfast, which often includes local authors. Since the Nick Linn Lecture Series focuses on fiction writers, we wanted to offer readers expanded choices, says Robert Levin, a board member of Friends of the Library of Collier County. We tested the waters earlier this year for interest in nonfiction authors with programs by Tom Zoellner, author of Uranium: War, Energy and the Rock that Shaped the World, and Les Standiford, author of Last Train to Paradise. An enthusiastic response from patrons led to expansion of the nonfiction series to four lectures for 2015. The programs will take place at the Country Club of Naples from 8:30-10:30 a.m., beginning with a continental breakfast. Patrons can choose to attend either a single lecture or all four. Tickets to each event are $35 for members of Friends of the Library, $45 for non-members. Purchase tickets online at collierfriends.org or call 262-8135.

Nostalgia has kept the prices high for things that bring back memories of the old-fashioned drugstore soda fountain. A white ceramic Crawfords Cherry-Fizz syrup dispenser with gold, orange, green and red lettering and nine cherries as decorations auctioned for $19,200 at Morphy Auctions August 2014 sale in Denver, Pa. It was just one of the 130 syrup dispensers in the auction. Seventy percent of them sold for more than $1,000. Prices were high because the syrup dispensers were in good to great condition and had their pumps and all other parts. A record price for a dispenser was set at the same auction: $69,000 for a Pepsi-Cola syrup urn in excellent condition that we think resembles pieces of 1904 Roseville pottery by Frederick Hurten Rhead. Q: Years ago, I bought an old wooden dictionary stand. Its about 3 feet tall, has angled sides and two lower shelves. Theres a small metal plate on the bottom shelf that reads Baker Office Furniture Co., Pittsburg, Pa. There is no h in Pittsburg. Can you tell me something about it so I can pass it on to younger family members? Does it have any value? A: Your dictionary stand was made between 1891 and 1911. Pennsylv anias city of Pittsburg was chartered in 1816 and the spelling of the name changed a few times. In 1891, the United States Board on Geographic Names ruled that the official spelling was without an h. The decision was reversed in 1911. Edward Enzer Baker opened the first office furniture store in the country in 1889. In 1913 Baker Office Furniture Co. advertised a reorganization sale, offering old office furniture for sale and offering to buy used office furniture or taking it as partial payment for new furniture. The company was still in business in the 1920s. The value of your dictionary stand: $95 to $250. Q: I have a cast-iron Dutch oven and lid. Its embossed Griswold No. 8 TiteTop Dutch Oven around the lid and Erie Pa., U.S.A. on the bottom. Value? A: Griswolds history dates back to 1865. But the company was not named Griswold Manufacturing Co. until about 1884. It operated in Erie until 1957. Griswold made a few different Tite-Top Dutch ovens marked No. 8. Yours could date from before or after World War II, depending on its size and style. Most of them sell for $150 to $200. Griswold cast-iron cookware is popular with both collectors and cooks. Q: I have a lamp with a pillow base that has a cast-bronze cat sitting on it. naplesclubsushi.com 239.261.4332 Located at:2555 Tamiami Trail North, Naples, FL 34103 Enjoy our fresh atmosphere and friendly service right in the heart of Naples.

Although the first soda fountains opened in the United States in the early 1800s, they were most popular in the 1940s and 1950s. This Cherry-Fizz dispenser sold for $19,200 at a 2014 Morphy auction held in Denver, Pa. The cats tail forms the lamps stem. On the pillow is a medallion that has a fleur-de-lis inside a square and the words Collection Francaise, Made in U.S.A. I bought the lamp at an auction. A man has now offered me double what I paid. Should I sell? A: Your lamp isnt bronze. Its made of spelter, a zinc alloy less valuable than bronze. Its also called French Bronze. In 1907 J.B. Hirsch, a Romanian metal-smith, started the New York Metal Art Bronze Works in Manhattan to import pieces from French foundries. After World War I, he traveled to Paris, bought the companys molds and opened J.B. Hirsch, his own casting foundry, in the United States. During the 1930s, J.B. Hirsch made figural French Bronze lamps. From 1948 to 1963, Hirsch and his son Abraham reassembled hundreds of original bronze molds hidden during World War II. J.B. Hirsch is still in business in New Jersey as a division of Richmond Lighting. Your lamp probably was made in the 1960s or 1970s and is worth about $200. Now you can decide whether to sell the lamp. Q: I bought six silver spoons at a garage sale a couple of years ago. They are 5 1/2 inches long and have a dragon on the front. They are marked on the back with DK in a diamond and E.P. I tried to find information on these but had no luck. Can you tell me how old they are and how much theyre worth? A: The letters E.P. stand for electroplate, a method of coating metal with a layer of silver that uses electric current. The mark DK may be for D.K. & Co., a company in Japan. Dragons are popular Japanese decorations. We found a pair of silver seafood forks marked DK decorated with pagodas for sale online for $30. Your spoons probably were made after 1930. Value of your set of six spoons: about $75. Tip: The acid or sulfur in eggs, onions, mayonnaise, tart salad dressing and salt will corrode the surface of silver or silver plate.

I miss watching him on his previous show, Conspiracy Theory. Stanley G., Omaha, Neb.A: Gov. Ventura is still in the public eye, but not on network TV. He has his own Internet show called Off the Grid, which is filmed from his home in Mexico. It can be seen on his YouTube channel and ora. tv. A big selling point for Jesse is that he can talk about whatever the heck he wants on his new show; he told me: Thats one of the reasons I think Conspiracy Theory got canceled after only three seasons, because in many ways, we were going where they didnt want us to go, and we were asking questions they didnt want asked. I love the Internet because there are no FCC regulations. Theres no government hanging over my shoulder. If I want to say bulls-, I can without getting fined or anything like that. For me it was like getting the handcuffs taken off and being able to speak freely. Thats what I love about Off the Grid. Q: I read in your column that The Mentalist would be renewed. When is it going to return? Its one of my favorite shows. Sissy U., via emailA: The Mentalist will be back for a seventh and final season on CBS, but not until midseason 2015, and only for 13 episodes. Q: I am so distraught that Parks and Recreation hasnt premiered its new season yet. I thought you said it had been renewed! Kallie F., via emailA: NBCs hit sitcom has been renewed. And, like The Mentalist mentioned above, this will be its seventh and final season, which will consist of 13 episodes and premiere midseason 2015. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Untitled By Jacqueline Lanoszka, NaplesThe hills of the ocean rolled with a hypnotic rhythm; seemingly syncing with my minds inner symphony. Gazing out at this movement for such long periods of time put me in a kind of mellowed trance. It became an escape from the tiresome thoughts that regularly spiraled throughout my psyche. The sway of the skiff lulled me further into my haven; rocking me ever so gently as a mother might do for her infant child. As I stretched out my arm to feel the sun warmed water, I noticed the faded blue paint along the edges of my little boat. A rush of memories ooded my consciousness; every sunset that I had ritually watched ashed up in a short movie accompanied by a peacefully joyous sensation. I most admired the ones with grand cotton clouds that would lazily sail over a violet painted welkin. Dusk had enveloped the day. It was my signal to begin the brief journey back toward shore. I had a lilting row that fell in harmony with my mind just as the waves had done earlier. Euphoria lled every ounce of my body, owing as energy in my blood stream, giving me my habitual high. This was my form of meditation. Eyes closed, head lightened, I felt release. The thought that evoked at this point recapitulated my bliss. Freedom means nothing. Absolutely nothing. A tear beaded on my cheek at the enlightening realization. I discerned the magnitude of the simplicity in it. What a surreally glorious impression. Freedom means nothing: nothing holding you down, nothing haunting your dreams, nothing provoking your anger. Countless distractions choke our reality. We forget the freedom of nothingness, the freedom, which so many children comprehended with such ease. Yet, in the process of becoming an adult, we somehow forget. Our minds become fogged, our spirits weakened, to where it becomes lost on us. How such exuberance comes from nothing. My eyes shot open at the sudden halt of movement. The boat had touched land. I wiped my face on the back of my hand and climbed ashore, towing the skiff by rope. I felt inspired by nothing. Mr. Jenkins Boat By Greg WojciechowskiI used to be pretty, really, but that was years ago. Now I am a shadow of my former self. Nothing a little paint, a rudder and perhaps a sail couldnt x. All I need is a little TLC, you know tender loving care. I was never a grand vessel, but I served my purpose. My rst owners would take me out onto the sea when they needed sh for their family. And sometimes when the shing was good, they would sell the sh they couldnt eat for money. Once they caught an enormous sh and sold it for a lot of money. They used it to buy a grander boat and didnt need me anymore. That was long ago. Later a family bought me. The father and son would take me out sailing in the bay. We never went very far. They seemed to have a good time the father instructing his son how to tack and sail into the wind. As time passed they sailed less and less. Then one day the boy left and the father never took me out again. I stayed on the shore for a long time. Sometime later a young couple used me to row out into the bay in the moonlight. It was nice to see them kiss and caress. I suppose he was courting her and it must have worked, because one evening he presented her with an engagement ring and she accepted. I never saw them after that. A boat needs to be in the water that is where it feels most comfortable. The waves lapping up against its side, the wind lling out its sail, the sea gently rocking it side to side. I miss that feeling. Now Mr. Jenkins owns me. He never uses me, in fact he neglects me terribly. I hope someday he will sell me so I can be useful again. It wouldnt take much to make me ship-shape. I just know I can ful ll someones needs, and perhaps even their hopes and dreams. WRITING CHALLENGE

Inspire on Purpose Publishing. 432 pages. Trade paperback, $17.99.This exciting story, a blend of biography and history, has been out for a while but deserves more attention than it has received. In Surrounded by Thunder, longtime Marco Island resident Tom Williams has crafted an interviewbased history of Americas space race activities through the experiences of one key figure. That persons name is given the books subtitle: The Story of Darrell Loan and the Rocketmen. The books scope is from the Soviet Sputnik launch in 1957 to the Aldridge-Armstrong moon landing in July 1969. Darrell Loan, who worked as the chief electronic guidance designer and troubleshooter, had a unique vantage point on that tension-filled and relatively short period during which enormous technological gains were made. Mr. Loan and those he worked with seemed to have done the impossible in fulfilling the mission set by President John F. Kennedy.The author carefully traces Mr. Loans family background and education. Upon graduation from the University of Iowa, he had just the right credentials to be heavily recruited by the new and established industrial companies fighting for government contracts during the space race. He first worked on Long Island for Sperry. The work was challenging and important, but his wife was unhappy in the New York area. She didnt find the other women she met friendly. And her husband spent much of his time elsewhere, as he was constantly called to the facilities where spacecraft were being tested or high-level meetings were being held. Mr. Loans superior performance led to a call from Chrysler, the principle manufacturer of the Armys rockets. Although Mrs. Loan was much happier once the couple moved back to the Midwest and she was befriended by the Chrysler Wives, Mr. Loan was still away from home most of the time, meeting with project directors, high-ranking military officers and civilian bigwigs in the aerospace efforts. In fact, Mr. Loan was regularly under the supervision of the main rocketman, Wernher von Braun, who, assisted by other German scientists hired by the U.S. government, was the primary organizer of and motivator for Americas space efforts. The authors descriptions of the interactions among members of this elite class of technical and management geniuses (both military and civilian) are unexpected treasures of this book. Readers learn about an amazing cast of characters. Some, such as the American astronauts, are well-known. Others, such as Bill Hinkle, the Chrysler executive who lured Mr. Loan away from Sperry, should be. Essentially, Mr. Williams focuses on the principal stages in the space race. These include getting a manned vehicle into space, then getting oneand twoman vehicles into earth orbit on mission-specific flights, then managing the rendezvous and linking of two space vehicles, and finally surveying the moon and landing there. These were the building blocks of President Kennedys call to put a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s and, of course, ahead of the Soviets. Each of the stages has its own vignettes of frustration, temporary setbacks and eventual success. But there are also several serious crises and failures, including the disaster when veterans Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee are burned to death inside the Apollo 1 capsule during a launch pad test at Cape Canaveral. Throughout his space race narrative, Mr. Williams keeps the domestic story of Darrell and Audrey Loan in view. Theirs is an uplifting, sensitively told story of American family life often compromised by a driven husbands need to bring all his talents to his countrys service. The author provides a remarkable understanding of the way in which supportive spouses make their partners achievements possible. The three Loan children might just as well be named Mercury, Gemini and Apollo. But for all of its powerful stretches of adrenalin-rush action, this glorious hymn to the golden age of space exploration has problems. It is marred by poor proofreading and infelicities of style, including grammatical lapses. For example, Mr. Williams regularly uses that instead of who when referring to people. Then there is a tendency toward sloppy handling of facts. It jeopardizes credibility to place Antwerp in Holland (instead of in Belgium) and pre-independence Kazakhstan in Soviet Russia rather than in the Soviet Union. A second edition needs fact-checking and much more careful editing. On the other hand, Surrounded by Thunder won the 2013 Florida Book Award gold medal for non-fiction. Read it and youll know why.

C24 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCT. 30-NOV. 5, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY V2+UJoin us at Naples Best Champagne Happy Hour featuring Veuve Clicquot and specially priced delectable fare and libations.EVERYFRIDAYFROMTOPMATTHEBAR FEATURING $5 Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label $5 Select Cocktails & Wine $5 Select Appetizers $7 flutes of Veuve Clicquot Rose $25 Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame children is based in Collier County, though Ms. Pearce hopes it can expand into Lee County next year. We plan to do a lot of small performances with them, she says. (But) transportation is a huge problem with this group were just taking it one day at a time. Because the choir or nucleo, as it is known within the El Sistema framework was created in partnership with ArtisNaples, she adds, she envisions performances will be help in the centers Daniels Pavilion. She hopes the group can one day sing the national anthem at a ball game or other public event. Begun in Venezuela in the 1970s, the El Sistema program targets underprivileged children and provides them with musical education to develop the inner resources to rise out of poverty. Founder Jose Antonio Abreus network of childrens ensembles has endured through seven political administrations as a social-services program, and his model has been adopted and adapted throughout the world as a youth-development program. Many of the participants in Gulfshore Operas Harmony Choir have recently arrived from places that have strong musical traditions, such as Haiti and Central America. Bruno Guerrero, volunteer marketing director for Gulfshore Opera, understands the sense of displacement these children can feel when they leave their home countrys musical traditions behind. A native of Peru, he says that without that musical base, a young person can feel lost. A singer himself, he met Ms. Pearce when she became his voice teacher three years ago while he was a student at Florida Gulf Coast University. He graduated with a degree in marketing and joined Ms. Pearce at Gulfshore Opera. For their introduction to Southwest Floridas newest opera company, area opera aficionados will hear the most dramatic moments from a variety of Guiseppe Verdis most famous works, including Rigoletto, La Traviata, Il Trovatore and Messa da Requiem. Maestro Paul Nadler will lead the Gulfshore Opera orchestra, and Gulfshore Opera Musical Director Trent Brown will lead the chorus. Guest soloists are: soprano JulieAnne Hamula, who performed Gilda in Rigoletto this year in the North Shore Music Festival and the title role in La Traviata for the North Dutchess Symphony Orchestra and the Delaware Valley Opera; mezzo-soprano Ola Rafalo, who has played a variety of operatic roles, won the Leo M. Rogers Award as an apprentice artist at Sarasota Opera and in 2009 won the Audience Award at the Metropolita Opera National Council auditions; tenor Michael Wade Lee, who sang Alfredo in La Traviata with the Boston Lyric Opera and Cavadarossi in Tosca with Lyric Opera Productions Ireland; and baritone Thomas Cannon, who has been a featured artist with Arizona Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Crested Butte F estival and Dallas Opera, among others. Ms. Pearce will perform the aria Pace Mio Dio. Tickets to the inaugural performance are $25-$60 and can be purchased by calling 529-3925 or visiting gulfshoreopera.org.

The Naples Players hold auditions for Red beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, at the Sugden Community Theatre. No appointments are necessary. Two actors are needed: one man in his 50s and another in his 20s. FGCU Professor Barry Cavin will direct. Winner of the 2010 Tony award for Best Play, Red explores the relationship between an artist and his creations as he fights for relevance in the art community. Famed abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just received the biggest commission in the history of modern art: a series of murals to be hung in New York Citys new Four Seasons restaurant. Working feverishly with his new and eager assistant, Ken, the artist challenges his young apprentices artistic point of view every step of the way. When Ken challenges the virtuoso, however, Mr. Rothko is forced to contemplate his own artistic significance. Rehearsals begin Dec. 15, and performances are Feb. 4-28. Scripts are available at the box office for 72 hours perusal with a $20 deposit. Call 2637990 to confirm availability.

C28 WEEK OF OCT. 30-NOV. 5, 2014 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE NEWSPazzo! celebrates a milestone with new dishes through season BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comThe elder statesman of Fifth Avenues fine dining establishments turns 20 this season, and owner Skip Quillen has been hard at work ensuring Pazzo! endures for 20 more. To mark the milestone, Mr. Quillen and his chefs spent three months creating 100 new dishes to roll out on the Pazza! menu during the winter season. As for how things have changed over the years, the landmark Italian establishment is a bit more dignified now, he says. Believe it or not, this place was rockin back in the day. Mr. Quillen proudly credits his and his staffs dedication to quality food and ingredients for Pazzo!s staying power over the years. If theres a better restaurant in Southwest Florida as far as Italian goes, Id like to see it, he says. Diners with a taste for authentic Italian food and an extensive list of Italian wines can visit Pazzo! at 853 Fifth Ave. S. Reservations are welcome by calling 434-8494 or going to pazzoitaliancafe. com. The wine experts at Culinary Concepts have completed their annual, exhaustive search for new selections to add to the wine lists at the companys five restaurants: Pazzo! and Yabba Island Grill in Naples, Bluewater Bistro at Coconut Point in Estero and Chops City Grill in Naples and at Coconut Point. The group overhauls each wine list and menu every year to ensure that diners always have a fresh selection. Heres how the exhaustive process works: Each restaurant hosts bar managers from its sister establishments for blind tastings of more than 700 bottles over the course of a few months. Scores are tallied for each varietal and a first and second place are selected. Disputes are settled by the resident bar manager. Then the wait staff at each restaurant has its own tasting of the selected bottles and receives a packet to study in order to be prepared to describe the new wines to customers when the new lists debut. Chef Dario Leo at Barbatella demonstrates the finer points of basic pasta sauces starting at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 1. $50 includes prosecco, lunch and wine. Call 2631955 to make reservations. The Naples Children and Education Foundation hosts Friendsgiving evening of food and wine starting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, at Hotel Escalante.

Inside the basket were cara cara oranges, kobocha squash, romanesco, green tomatoes, broccoli, apples, green plantains, Belgian endives, sea scallops, fermented shrimp and semi-dry chorizo sausage. With just 50 minutes to prepare their dish, Chef Kashkin Zack came up with the winning curry coconut scallops, vegetable soup with rice crackers, and kobocha squash and orange marmalade with seared scallops.

Like Fuji, it offers a wide range of sushi as well as cooked Thai and Japanese dishes, including some you wont find in most spots. Stop in for the stellar sushi but stay to explore the cooked fare. Try any of the dozen yakitori items, priced by the skewer, and specials such as sauted chicken livers with asparagus or mainstays like spicy tuna nachos and carpaccio of hamachi with jalapenos. A huge tiger roll shrimp tempura with asparagus, avocado, rice, seaweed, sesame seeds, masago, smoked salmon, eel and wakame was delicious. A nightly special, the mummy roll, contained spicy blue crab in rice paper with mango sauce, tobiko and gold flake. Grilled salmon with baby bok choy and lychee duck curry were as well crafted as the sushi. For dessert, try the Tokyo sundae sticky rice, green tea ice cream, red bean paste, lychee and coconut. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed July 2014 C ider Press Cafe, 1201 Piper Blvd., Naples; 631-2500 Chef/owner Johan Everstijn calls what he creates Florida inspired, modernist plant-based cuisine. What you'll find at Cider Press is an imaginative selection of meat-, fishand soy-free dishes that are beautiful and brimming with nutrition and flavor. Nothing is cooked at a temperature higher than 117 degrees, thereby preserving nutrients. But theres no sacrificing taste. A Florida roll is made from shredded jicama (in lieu of rice), watermelon tuna, mango, cilantro and avocado. The Seminole corn chowder, served cold, is alive with sweet corn flavor. Chipotle enchiladas and churrasco (dumplings made of smoked nuts and portobello served with chimichurri sauce and yellow aji-pineapple salsa) are satisfying entrees. For dessert, try the tiramisu, with two creamy lemon layers and two imbued with coffee flavor. And dont skip the freshly pressed apple cider. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed March 2014 Grouper Grille, 2065 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 963-2058 This small, casual spot is just right when you dont feel like getting dressed up or spending a lot but want someone else to do the work. Simplicity reigns, with dishes such as chicken soup and grilled chicken as well as the grilled, fried, blackened and sauted offerings from the sea. The philosophy is to serve fresh food from local farms, whenever possible, just like Mom used to make. Wine selections are few, but they go beyond the usual jug options. As you might expect, grouper baskets are popular here. Creamy clam chowder and crisp, well-seasoned fried calamari with spicy marinara were great starters. With the fried grouper, you can also order other items, such as the shrimp and scallops available in the hearty captains basket. All the seafood was perfectly fried, accompanied by tartar and cocktail sauces, excellent fries and fresh cole slaw. A pasta platter with shrimp, clams, calamari and mussels was lovely, but the sauce needed a boost of garlic and more herbs. Beer and wine served. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2013 Rodes Fresh and Fancy, 3756 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 992-4040 A casual spot serving unpretentious food in a somewhat kitschy atmosphere that appeals to tourists without turning off the locals too much, Rodes has been around, in various incarnations, since 1987. Its a reliable destination for a simple, quick and satisfying meal. You wont find most of the food tarted up with fruity salsas or plates squirted with colorful coulis, but your meal will be cooked properly and served promptly with an easy smile. Rodes makes a few concessions to restaurant trends the ubiquitous sesame-crusted seared ahi tuna and the ever-popular if overfished Chilean sea bass, for example). But its bread and butter are basic pleasures such as deep baskets of perfectly fried oysters, expertly cooked fresh fish and crab cakes unsullied by fillers. The Key lime pie lacks pucker power, but Rodes might be holding back a bit for tourists. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2014 The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This is a restaurant whose name aptly describes its mission: to serve as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured from area farms and local waters. Its run by Jeff Mitchell, a Culinary Institute of America alum. The menu is creative, the setting unfussy and the staff friendly and accommodating. Local items are boldfaced on the menu, which changes as availability does. Clam flatbread with Pine Island clams, local tomatoes and herbs on a thin, yeasty crust was a great starter. So was the snapper ceviche, with locally grown serrano peppers, avocado, red onion, cilantro, golden grape tomatoes and citrus. Grilled Gulf-caught cobia with tomato confit and grass-fed short ribs were both simply but expertly prepared. Sides of calabaza squash, crunchy chard and smashed potatoes were all cooked perfectly. For dessert: two mini-sized treats, Key lime panna cotta and bread pudding, both just right. Beer and wine served.

CUISINE REVIEWMereday expands portfolio again with a French brasserieAt the pace hes opening restaurants in Southwest Florida, Charles Mereday might be modeling his career after empire-makers such as Tom Colicchio and Mario Batali. In the space of little more than a year, Chef Mereday has opened three distinctly different concepts: Meredays Fine Dining and Alto Live Jazz Kitchen in Naples and, most recently, Meredays Brasserie at Coconut Point in Estero. The obvious concern is that he might be biting off more than he can chew, that having his fine-tuned attention spread out across such distance and such a range of styles might compromise consistency of quality. A recent visit to his more casual but still stylish French brasserie did provoke moments of doubt. However, most of the missteps appear to be fixable with time, tweaking or training. For the most part, the food merits a degree of forbearance and a bit of indulgence when it comes to the tab. Meredays Brasserie occupies the massive space once occupied by The Grill Room on the southwest side of Coconut Point. Its 8,000 square feet of warmly polished wood and stylish upholstery inside, with an outdoor bar and patio seating raising the capacity to 250 diners. Big orange drum lamps cast subdued light over white linen-topped tables in the main dining area. We were seated in roomy curved banquette facing the bar, which turned out to be the hot seat literally. The windows beyond the bar were open on a still-humid evening, which didnt make for the most comfortable dining. Why the maitre d seated us there when most of the tables deeper in the room were available (and away from the heat source) remains a mystery. True to the tradition of a brasserie, which loosely translates as brewery, Meredays offers more than a dozen craft beers on draft as well as beer cocktails. My companion sipped a Florida Cracker ($7.75), a cloudy but bright-tasting Belgian white wheat ale from Cigar City Brewing in Tampa. Wines by the glass are equally pricey, mostly in the $10-$15 range, but show a good range in regions of origin. The Girardin Cuvee Vincent Burgundy ($15) was a perfect accompaniment to our appetizers of foie gras terrine ($22) and a quartet of spicy smoked duck wings ($14). The terrine was served chilled but had the palate-satisfying consistency of softened butt er and it spread as easily as butter on toasted bread. At once earthy and refined, it paired nicely with a sweet grape mostarda, which is akin to marmalade. Although the escargot and the roasted marrow bones were tempting, the duck wings had been highly recommended by a friend whod already scoped out the restaurant, so we had to try them. They lived up to expectations. Based on wing size, these ducks might have been on steroids. Sheathed in shatteringly crisp, smoky skin, they had a lot of tender meat on them and were glossed with a kicky habanero glaze. If were lucky, theyll stay on the menu, which is said to change frequently. As it was, there was plenty to choose from when it came to the main course. Would it be comfort cuisine in the form of coq au vin, a simple snapper en papillote or decadent $42 lobster thermidor (a rarefied dish seldom seen these days)? My companion was won over by the braised lamb shank ($38). Pricey for a shank but ample enough for two meals, it was seasoned with a well-blended mix of Moroccan-inspired spices and served with minty couscous and perfectly cooked asparagus, green beans, red and golden beets and tomatoes. Red grapes added unexpected pops of juicy sweetness. All told, this was a well-conceived, well-executed dish. The bouillabaisse ($38) didnt achieve quite the same level of quality and it nearly ended up on the table and in my lap as the waiter tilted the large bowl perilously close to spillage when he reached across the table to set it down. Throughout the evening, his inexperience or nervousness was repeatedly apparent. I had to ask for a soup spoon, and the one he brought back didnt have a bowl sizeable enough to convey big pieces of seafood or even much broth. He also described the Floating Islands dessert as whipped eggs; if the chef had overheard that insult, the meringues would not have been alone in getting whipped. Still, the waiter could not have been blamed for the bouillabaisses shortcomings. Perhaps other distractions in the kitchen could explain why the grilled shrimp were tough and the fish dry, while the massive grilled sea scallops and the clams were spot on, tender and just cooked through. The dish was dominated, though, by an overabundance of mussels teeny-tiny mussels at that, their flesh about the size of a fava bean. In this state, this French classic is destined to disappoint diners. On the positive side: The flavorful saffron-colored soup base was enhanced by scrumptious green beans, baby carrots, fingerling potatoes and a variety of tomatoes from The Chefs Garden, the renowned purveyor of sustainably grown produce based in Ohio. Despite the waiters half-hearted dessert spiel, the Floating Islands ($9) made for a delightful end to my meal. The delicate little clouds of meringue were adrift with a complement of berries in a pool of rich crme Anglaise. The chocolate mousse napoleon ($9), in contrast, was too stingy in its use of the delicious mousse. With the considerable gifts of the man building the empire, theres reason enough to feel confident that Meredays Brasserie, in time, will prove to be another jewel in his crown.
