When patients are diagnosed with breast cancer, Ms. Zinn is one of the first people they talk to. She remains a constant throughout their course of treatment, a lighthouse of information, motivation and clear-eyed compassion. She is their advocate and guide on a lengthy, costly, physically and emotionally demanding medical mission to rid their bodies of cancer. After that, she stays in touch to make sure patients stay on track with regular testing and check ups. Ms. Zinn is a breast health nurse navigator for Lee Memorial Hospital System. Although what she does can be extraordinary, her specialty as a nurse, helping patients navigate a treatment program, has become over the last decade standard operating procedure for breast cancer care (and increasingly for oncology in general).

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 Numerous studies have shown that getting a mammogram and a breast exam reduces the risk of dying from breast cancer. Breast cancers found during a mammogram are more likely to be smaller and still confined to the breast. Finding breast cancer early can improve the chances that breast cancer can be treated successfully and with more treatment options, less extensive surgery and, ultimately, better treatment outcomes. The American Cancer Society encourages women to make healthy lifestyle choices such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity and reducing alcohol. These choices can help reduce their breast cancer risk. ACS also encourages regular breast exams and mammograms to find breast cancer early, when it is most likely to be curable. The organization also recommends: Yearly mammograms at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health. Breast exam about every three years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women 40 and over. All women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and should report ANY breast change promptly to their doctor or nurse. Breast self-exam is an option for women starting in their 20s. ACS offers a free screening reminder to help busy women remember to schedule mammograms and breast exams. You fill out a brief form and ACS will email you a reminder on the first day of your birth month with the breast cancer screening tests we recommend based on the latest ACS guidelines. Breast cancer screening may include breast exams by your doctor, mammograms and other tests based on your age and other factors. Sign up for the screening reminder at cancer.org. Most of the time, women getting their routine mammogram will receive a letter within 30 days saying the results were normal. But if doctors find something suspicious, theyll call you back usually within five days to take new pictures or get other tests. Getting that call can be scary, but a suspicious finding does not mean you have cancer. In fact, less than 10 percent of women called back for more tests are found to have breast cancer. What else could it be? A suspicious finding could be dense breast tissue, a cyst or even a tumor that isnt cancer. Other times, the image just isnt clear and needs to be retaken. Or, if this is your first mammogram, your doctor might want to look at an area more closely simply because there is no previous mammogram to compare it with. What will happen at the follow-up appointment? You are likely to have another mammogram called a diagnostic mammogram. (Your previous mammogram was called a screening mammogram.) A diagnostic mammogram is still an x-ray of your breasts, but its done for a different reason. Often, more pictures are taken during a diagnostic mammogram so that any areas of concern can be carefully studied. A radiologist is on hand to advise the technician (the person who operates the mammogram machine) to be sure they have all the images that are needed. You may also have an ultrasound test that uses sound waves to create a computer image of the tissues inside your breasts. For this test, you will lie on a table while a technician applies some gel and places a transducer (a small instrument that looks like a microphone) on your skin. The test is painless and does not expose you to radiation. This test is often used to look more closely at areas of concern found on a mammogram. In addition, some women will have an MRI. For a breast MRI, you will lie face down inside a narrow tube for up to an hour while sensors capture information used to create a more detailed image of the tissues inside your breasts. The test is painless, but can be uncomfortable for people who dont like small, enclosed spaces. You can expect to learn the results of your tests during the visit. You are likely to be told one of three things: The suspicious area turned out to be nothing to worry about and you can return to having yearly mammograms. The area is probably nothing to worry about, but you should have your next mammogram sooner than normal usually in four to six months to make sure it doesnt change over time. Cancer was not ruled out and a biopsy is needed to tell for sure. You will also get a letter with a summary of the findings that will tell you if you need follow-up tests or when you should schedule your next mammogram. Why and when should you have a mammogram?What to do if youre called back because of something suspiciousTHE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY____________________________THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY____________________________

Most biopsy results are not cancer, but a biopsy is the only way to find out. During the procedure, a small amount of tissue is removed and looked at under a microscope. There are several different types of biopsies; most use a needle, but some use an incision. The type you have depends on things like how suspicious the tumor looks, how big it is, where it is in the breast, how many tumors there are, other medical problems you might have and your personal preferences. The tissue sample will be sent to a lab where a pathologist will look at it. It will take a few days, maybe even more than a week, for you to find out the results. Once you get them, its important to learn whether the results are final, or whether you need another biopsy. You may also decide that you want to get a second opinion. If the results are negative or benign, that means no cancer was found. Be sure to ask the doctor whether you need any additional follow-up, and when you should have your next screening mammogram. If the biopsy shows that you do have cancer, your doctor may refer you to a breast surgeon or other breast specialist. If you do have cancer and are referred to a breast specialist, use these tips to make your appointment as useful as possible: Make a list of questions to ask at the appointment. Download a list from ACS at cancer.org or call (800) 227-2345. Bring a family member or friend with you. She can serve as an extra pair of ears, help you remember things later and give you support. Ask if you can record important conversations. Take notes. If someone uses a word you dont know, ask them to spell it and explain it. Ask the doctors or nurses to explain anything you dont understand.While you waitWaiting for appointments and the results of tests can be frightening. Many women experience strong emotions including disbelief, anxiety, fear, anger and sadness during this time. Some things to remember: Its normal to have these feelings. Most breast changes are not cancer and are not life-threatening. Talking with a loved one or a counselor about your feelings might help. Talking with other women who have been through a breast biopsy might help. The American Cancer Society is available at (800) 227-2345 around the clock to answer your questions and provide support. 4081 Tamiami Trail North, Suite C203, Naples, Florida 34103 www.DrHasen.com 239.262.5662KENT V.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 A7 Breast self exam: A good habit to start in your 20s THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETYBeginning in their 20s, women should be told about the benefits and limitations of breast self-exam. Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any changes to a health professional as soon as they are found. Finding a change does not necessarily mean there is a cancer. A woman can notice changes by being aware of how her breasts normally look and feel and by feeling her breasts for changes or by choosing to use a stepby-step approach and using a specific schedule to examine her breasts. The best time for a woman to examine her breasts is when they are not tender or swollen. Women who examine their breasts should have their technique reviewed during periodic health exams by their health care professional.While lying down Lie down and place your right arm behind your head. The exam is done while lying down, not standing up. This is because when a woman is lying down, the breast tissue spreads evenly over the chest wall and is as thin as possible, making it much easier to feel all the breast tissue. Use the pads of the three middle fingers on your left hand to feel for lumps in the right breast. Use overlapping dime-sized circular motions of the finger pads to feel the breast tissue. Use three levels of pressure to feel all the breast tissue: Light pressure is needed to feel the tissue closest to the skin; medium pressure to feel a little deeper; and firm pressure to feel the tissue closest to the chest and ribs. It is normal to feel a firm ridge in the lower curve of each breast, but you should tell your doctor if you feel anything else out of the ordinary. Move around the breast in an upand-down pattern starting at an imaginary line drawn straight down your side from the underarm and moving across the breast to the middle of the chest bone (sternum or breastbone). Be sure to check the entire breast area, going down until you feel only ribs and up to the neck or collarbone.While standing Stand in front of a mirror with your hands pressing firmly down on your hips. Look at your breasts for any changes of size, shape or contour. Look for dimpling and redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin. The pressing down on the hips position contracts the chest wall muscles and enhances any breast changes. Examine each underarm (can be done while sitting) with your arm only slightly raised so you can easily feel in this area. 239-561-7600VisitingAngels.com/FortMyers Serving Lee County, Collier County & the Surrounding Areas We Care Every Day, In Every Way Each Visiting Angel agency is Independently Owned and OperatedProud Supporter of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month u nding A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A r r r r r r r r r r r r r e e e e e e a s NR 30211639, HCS 233012 MAMMOGRAMS SAVE LIVES NDIC provides the community with one of the most comprehensive breast health programs available in NaplesWE ARE NOW OPEN SATURDAYS FROM 8-12PMPAYMENT IS DUE AT TIME OF SERVICE.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 says Ms. Zinn, who is 47 and has been an oncology nurse for 19 years. Many hospitals, such as Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte, NCH Healthcare System in Naples and Good Samaritan Medical Center in West Palm Beach, assign every patient diagnosed with breast cancer a navigator. They help keep patients in compliance with care plans, reduce expensive hospital visits and duplicated servic es, and improve outc omes. Breast health navigation is beneficial to every single patient who has a breast cancer diagnosis, said Deb DOrazio, a breast health navigator at NCH who has roughly 100 patients at any one time who are going through treatment. Nurse navigators started in Harlem, N.Y. in the early 1990s to help low-income, uninsured cancer patients overcome barriers to care, especially financial barriers. With thousands of people still uninsured or underinsured in Florida, breaking down barriers cost, transportation, psychological, social is still a vital part of a navigators job. All those things really effected their outcomes and how well they would adhere to their medical treatment plan, said Franklin Gaerlan, an oncology nurse navigator for all cancers at Fawcett Memorial. But as breast cancer and other oncology treatments become increasingly individualized and involve keeping dozens of appointments with specialists, navigators have played a key role in guiding patients through what can be a fragmented care process. LMHS requires navigators to be a masters degree-level nurse certified in oncology and breast health, although training can vary depending on the organization. Now it has really become a standard that all patients receive breast navigation, said Esther Ibarra, breast cancer nurse navigator at the Comprehensive Breast Center at Good Samaritan in West Palm. Were seeing that patients are benefiting tremendously from having a nurse navigator who can be their point of contact, their resource for any questions. Navigators are a link to community resources that patients might otherwise miss or not have the time or energy to pursue. They are a liaison between patients and physicians, and between a larger medical system with all their lingo and convoluted payment systems. I know sometimes the doctors dont always have as much time as I do to sit down with them, said Mr. Gaerlan at FawcettThe diagnosis The life-changing instant for Ms. Ward, a dedicated soccer mom who lives in North Fort Myers, came on Dec. 22. Her doctor called to inform her that the results of a biopsy had come back positive. It was the answer a part of her already expected. I kind of just knew, but you dont want to know you know? At first, she thought the diagnosis sounded like a death sentence, a relatively aggressive triple negative form of invasive ductal carcinoma, cancer that forms in the milk ducts and can spread to other parts of the body. Triple negative means she tested negative for three things that can fuel cancer: estrogen, progesterone and HER-2. That sounds good but its not because it means common treatments such as hormone therapy or drugs that block estrogen wont work. Two days later, on the morning of Dec. 24, she met with Ms. Zinn at her office at the Regional Cancer Center in Fort Myers. Nurse Zinn recalled Ms. Ward telling her later that what saved her is the moment I told her it would be all right. The diagnosis was not a death sentence, Nurse Zinn explained. She began to lay out what steps to take next, how to proceed, what to expect. Its like the weight is lifted off your shoulders, Ms. Ward said. At least for a while. Eight months of treatment loomed: four months of chemotherapy followed by surgery, then radiation treatments. Nurse Zinn advises patients to take it one week at a time so they arent overwhelmed by the big picture. Moving forward after a diagnoses, taking the first step, takes courage. Immediately, they have a sense of anxiety so a big part of my job is just relieving that anxiety, said Nurse Ibarra with Good Samaritan. And Im walking them through every single step because they are extremely upset, extremely nervous, extremely anxious about whats going to happen. They have 1,000 questions about where do I go from here.The planNurse Zinn started to wipe away the uncertainty Ms. Ward felt, and helped put things in perspective. After that, Ms. Ward met her treatment team all on one day and in one place at Lee Memorials Multidisciplinary Breast Clinic at the Regional Cancer Center in Fort Myers. Its normal for breast cancer patients to meet doctors involved in their treatment at different offices on different days. Ms. Zinn recommends the Multidisciplinary Clinic instead because from day one the physicians, including those who partner with LMHS but dont work for the organization, and a handful of other specialists who treat a patient are all on the same page. The Multidisciplinary Clinic is available to all patients, although they can opt out or see different doctors elsewhere. Although the approach is unique to LMHS, it is in line with a core part of a nurse navigators job, to assemble the puzzle of an often fragmented system of care to make it seem more whole for patients. After the doctors meet with the patient individually they convene for a tumor board meeting, Ms. Zinn said, in which they review her pathology images and agree on a course of treatment together. In one room, there is a radiation oncologist, medical oncologist and breast surgeon, the physicians central to breast cancer treatment. They are typically joined by the nurse navigator, a radiologist, pathologist, pharmacist, genetic counselor and dietician the many jobs suggesting the high cost, complexity and logistical challenges of coordinating care. In Ms. Wards case, doctors had initially thought surgery would come first, but after the tumor board meeting, they changed course, deciding instead to start with chemotherapy because of the aggressive nature of the tumor. It would also be better to reduce the tumors size before removing it to conserve breast tissue. After her second chemotherapy treatment, Ms. Ward lost her hair. It would start to grow back about six weeks later. Chemotherapy is the hardest, Ms. Ward said, just because youre sick and in bed and you dont feel good, but there are things you want to do. She recalled missing a soccer tournament in which her daughter made a big play. Barriers to careSome patients dont need navigator Mr. Gaerlans services as much. They already have strong support systems and good insurance. Others dont have the money to pay for care. Some dont have rides or even phones. I feel a lot of time when anyone goes through cancer they feel very alone, very isolated, he said, sometimes referring them to Celebrate Life, a cancer support group that meets for casual lunches. Navigators break down barriers to care in numerous ways, harnessing a slew of resources including writing for grants from organizations such as Susan G. Komen and From Our Hearts. For many, the cost is a wall. Ms. Ward has health insurance, for instance, but with a high deductible, premiums and other costs, she ended up paying about $20,000 out of pocket. That was paid in part by a fundraiser organized by her coworkers but not everyone has such strong support. Nurse DOrazio in Naples helped one patient who was homeless and uninsured and diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, qualify for Medicaid and other assistance. Now, after chemotherapy and surgery, she is living on her own and is self sufficient, Ms. DOrazio said. Transportation is a problem for many patients. Ms. DOrazio works with Collier Area Transits Paratransit system to set up rides. We do work with the folks at NCH to assist some of their patients, for example someone that might get discharged from the hospital and is no longer able to drive, said Michelle Arnold, Colliers director of public transit and neighborhood enhancement. Its a sustaining service for a lot of people. Wellington resident and breast cancer survivor Fran Coppa, 49, had a strong support system already in her family and friends when she received care through Good Samaritan. Even so, Nurse Ibarra made sure I followed up with all my appointments, she said. She called just to see how I was. Setting up rides for her twin 10-year-old boys was tricky, as was caring for her 88-year-old mother who lives with the family. I had to borrow favors from everybody for a while, she said. Picking up the kids from school was something I called in a lot of favors for. Although she has medical insurance through her husbands work and was making monthly payments on a number of different medical bills, one of them ended up in collections anyway. For her, waiting for test results and radiation were the worst parts of her treatment. I could do very little because it was so hot and my skin was so burned, she said. I couldnt go in the pool, I couldnt go in the ocean. I had to stay in the air conditioner. It was like someone took a hot frying pan to my armpit and my chest, and then it would blister and my skin would CHARTINGFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOFranklin Gaerlan, an oncology nurse navigator for all cancers at Fawcett Memorial in Port Charlotte.COPPA DORAZIO

National Quality Leader and Path Excellence in Patient Service Award WinnerWere seeing that patients are benefiting tremendously from having a nurse navigator who can be their point of contact, their resource for any questions. Esther Ibarra, breast cancer nurse navigator at the Comprehensive Breast Center at Good Samaritan in West Palmsplit, and it was hot to the touch. I was told everything, but until it happens to you, you dont get it. The Affordable Care Act or Obamacare gets mixed reviews from navigators who say it has helped many acquire health insurance, but sometimes with high deductibles they cant afford. Other patients opt out of buying health care and take the tax penalty because they cant afford the premiums. Im seeing more women get screened for breast cancer because of the Affordable Care Act, said Ms. Ibarra. For the first time, more (women) are getting treatment because they have affordable health care coverage. But perversely there is a coverage gap for those who need the most help paying for care. People who make between 100 percent of the federal poverty level ($11,770 per year for an individual) and 400 percent ($47,080 per year for one) qualify for marketplace subsidies, according to the Kaiser Foundation. But those who make less than 100 percent, the poorest of the working poor, dont. They could be covered by Medicaid expansion, the component of the ACA designed to extend insurance to the lowest income patients. But only those age 50 to 64 are covered. The rest are not because Floridas legislators and Gov. Rick Scott (along with 21 other states) have refused to expand federal Medicaid coverage. That includes about 669,000 Floridians, half of them women. Chemo, surgery, radiationFor four months, doctors delivered chemotherapy to Ms. Ward intravenously on Thursdays as she sat in a chair at the Cancer Center in Fort Myers. The room was filled with buzzing and beeping, crowded on some days, and the process took four or five hours. Here she got to know the chemo club, people she met during her treatments. I met a few really amazing people in there that I still talk to, she said. Although she was given anti-nausea medication and felt mostly good on the day of her chemo, by Friday or Saturday and for the rest of the weekend It was like the flu times 10. By Monday shed still be feeling weak, and by Wednesday about normal, and then on Thursday it all started over again. But the chemo worked as planned. When the surgeon removed the irregular-shaped lump, there was no more cancer found. Then came 36 radiation treatments delivered Monday through Friday. They lay you in a machine and Ill say zap you with radiation, Ms. Ward said. Her treatment ended in August, leaving her clear of cancer, although not quite back to normal, she said. Because of the radiation and because surgery included removing lymph nodes, she developed a not uncommon condition called lymphedema. The nodes cant do their normal job, such as draining fluid, resulting in a blockage and swelling that requires exercises, massage and a compression sleeve. Its difficult for her to look back on her medical journey without being overwhelmed with emotion. So for now shes focusing on practical matters and getting back to her life, with a new outlook shaped by experience. It was hard, but it was worth it, she said. Nurse Zinn and doctors will continue to monitor and follow up with her especially over the next five years, when cancer is most likely to reoccur. Statistically, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and a relatively small number of men as well. Get your mammogram, Ms. Ward said is her message to women. Women should get a mammogram each year starting at age 40, the American Cancer Society says. And a breast exam by a doctor or nurse should be part of a regular health exam and done at least every three years for women in their 20s and 30s. Like Ms. Ward, Ms. Coppa in Wellington found an openhearted community among other patients and caregivers. It opens up a door for conversation that maybe you wouldnt have been able to have before, she said. It just feels to me that you can talk about anything; it just doesnt have to be about cancer. You see older people, younger people, all ages, all colors, all sizes. You just never knew when you looked in the mirror thats where you were going to be. Cancer does not discriminate.

FLORIDA WEEKLYNEWS TWO A13NEWSWEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015Immokalee elementary school students Salvador Vaca and Juan Diego Hernandez werent interested in books or reading when they started first grade. But after participating in The Immokalee Foundations Immokalee Readers tutoring program, both boys read two levels higher and delight in things like bringing home a backpack full of library books. That type of start in life is possible thanks to generous donors who participate in TIF events including the Charity Classic Pro-Am golf tournament and Charity Classic Celebration, both coming up in November. Immokalee Readers is an early intervention literacy program targeting low-performing student readers. High school-aged tutors work with the younger students after the school day to supplement reading instruction that occurs during class time. Highlands Elementary School is one of the new schools in TIFs Immokalee Readers program this year, and Salvador and Juan are among 48 children in first, second and third grades who participate in sessions that take place three days a week. At the helm are three certified teachers, one lead teacher and 12 high school tutors. Teachers have freedom to choose how to implement the program, and its clear that what theyve been doing is working. Principal Valerie Wenrich says because of Immokalee Readers, the entire school is making great gains. The program makes reading fun, she says. They are thinking out loud, with the teachers and tutors using different strategies and techniques. Once the children are engaged, they soak it up. Salvadors mother, Maria Vaca, certainly agrees. She knew her son was reading below grade level and was coming home with the same library book over and over again. She felt she was doing all she could to help. I have a huge accent, so even helping him sound out his words was difficult, she says. I was concerned for him. But all that changed with Salvadors participation in TIFs Immokalee Readers. Ive seen such a big change in a short time, his mother says. Plus, he comes home happy and is really excited to read. Salvador now reads above grade level and like the other kids, has benefited from his relationship with the tutors. Christina Hernandez, the English Language Learner contact for Highlands Elementary, says the high school tutors love the students, and vice versa. Thats an important part of the program, she says. The high school students take their responsibility seriously, she adds. They have a great rapport the children look up to them. Tutors must maintain a 2.5 GPA. For their consistency and commitment, they get valuable work experience. They each receive a stipend, allowing them to experience a different work environment than they might otherwise have, since many are children of migrant workers. Juans mother, April Duron, has also noticed how much her son now likes reading. He surprises me with his words, she says. She is grateful for the impact the high school tutors have made as role models, too. He sees them going to school to better themselves, and taking time to help make him better.Tournament details Results like these happen because of supporters like Mark Lye, PGA and Champions Tour professional and former Golf Channel analyst. Since the TIF Charity Classic Pro-Am began a decade ago, Lye has used his enthusiasm for TIF and his wide contacts in professional golf to recruit players to swing clubs with the amateurs who pay $5,000 to enter the tournament. Play this year takes place at Bay Colony Golf Club in Naples on Monday, Nov. 16. Chairing the event for the fifth year is Kevin Johnson, senior vice president of Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management. The day kicks off at 7:30 a.m. with registration, breakfast and golf demonstrations. Golf clinics begin at 8:15 a.m. and the shotgun start is at 9:30 Young readers and TIF students benefit from charity golf tournament and dinnerOctober is also Domestic Violence Awareness MonthOne in four American women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Thats more women than are affected by breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. Still, more than one-third of Americans have never discussed the issue. Throughout October, The Shelter for Abused Women & Children is raising awareness with a variety of events as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Heres whats on the calendar: Purple Purse Challenge Through Oct. 27, those who donate $25 or more will automatically be entered to win one of three designer purses including a limited edition purse designed by Purple Purse spokeswoman and actress Kerry Washington of TVs Scandal. Moes Corporate Run This 3-mile run walk sets out at 6:15 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, from Moes at the corner of U.S. 41 and Immokalee Road. All levels of runners and walkers are welcome. This race is not chip timed. The Purple Party Starting at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16, at Paradise Wine and hosted by The Shelters NextGen group, the evening will be a splash of purple from dress to drink. Purple is the symbolic color for courage, survival, honor and dedication to ending domestic violence. Purchase tickets at naplesshelter.org/purpleparty. Ride for The Shelter Kick Off Join Gordon Kellam and Glen Schwesinger from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, at 7th Avenue Social as they kick off plans for a 1,156-mile bicycle ride from Naples to Washington, D.C., to raise national awareness for The Shelters Gentlemen Against Domestic Violence initiative. Tickets are at naplesshelter. org/ride. Mercato Goes Purple Merchants throughout Mercato will have special promotions, discounts and prizes from 4-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24. New this year: a free concert by the Karibbean Groove dance band from 7-9 p.m. The Shelters Hands are for Helping program will be set up for public participation from 4-6 p.m. The Immokalee Peace March & Childrens Fair The fair from 3-6 p.m. is followed by the hour-long march setting out at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26, at the Collier County Immokalee Sports Complex, 505 Escambia St. Free and open to all, fair activities include childrens games, food, entertainment, a talent show and information booths hosted by partner agencies.

COMMENTARYIts a problemAs Pope Francis left New York in a helicopter the other day, he asked the pilot to circle Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Perhaps he was searching for some sign of the beacon that could help guide Americans, and the world, through so many contemporary problems. Theres the Iran Problem, for example (possibly nuclear, and they hate us). The ISIS, Taliban and Al-Qaeda Problems (butt-ugly, intolerant and mean, we hope it doesnt become nuclear, and they hate us). The Palestinian and Israeli Problem (sibling rivalry, they want to use us, sometimes one of them hates us, and the other one is nuclear). The Saudi Problem (smiling rich guys who want our oil money, and they hate us. Not yet nuclear, apparently). The North Korean problem (frowning poor guys who just want to make us look bad, who have the plutonium to become nuclear, and who hate us). The Putin-Russia Problem (KGB ethics in a macho little frame called Putin and he hates us. Also, hes nuclear). The Chinese Problem (theyre nuclear and economically powerful, they think were stupid because we listen to Donald Trump, and theyre too practical to hate us). The Cuban Problem (theyre poor but sexy and they know it, they drive cool old cars made by us, and they either love us or hate us, but theres nothing we can do about it except build hotels on their beaches and party there). The Irish Problem (all their wars are merry even though all their songs are sad, and theyre temperamentally nuclear, like the Scottish). The Scottish Problem (unfortunately, their songs are as sad as their wars, which is why theyre always ticked off and looking for a fight. But thats their problem. At least they dont hate us). Finally, theres the immigrant problem, one the Pope addressed specifically in his visit. The rest of our problems are nothing compared to this one. Most people think they understand the immigrant problem: You either say yes or no when they start begging at your border; you either put up a wall and patrol with a gun, or you dont. But I finally understood this week that the problem is significantly different and much more complicated than that, and not because of the Popes visit. When NASA scientists announced Monday that water flows on Mars, I realized that the Immigrant Problem actually begins in space. Its the most remarkable discovery in modern astronomy. After all, water (with heat) is the harbinger and cradle of life, which comes from the stars. So part of this complicated immigrant problem is simple self-awareness: generally we dont have it. Were all immigrants, but not just immigrants from Europe or Africa or Asia. Not just from Syria or Siberia or somewhere south of San Antonio toward which the pope pointed, like San Paulo (Brazil) or Salta (Argentina) or San Miguel Petapa (Guatemala) or San Louis Potosi (Mexico). No, sir. Instead, were immigrants arrived from the stars and blessed with a little water and heat. Thats what so many of us forget, and what the exploration of Mars should teach us. Every walking one of us is star-born, our bodies merely matter-clusters of elements fired in the forges of immemorial time and deep space then shared in consciousness for a few moments of universal ticking-down, here with each other on a blue-green planet. With seven or eight others the planet spins around a single bright fire in a galaxy of roughly 100 billion bright fires, the entire boil dropped like a grain of sand onto a beach of 300 to 500 billion galaxies, each its own boiling swirl. Thats the truth, although probably not all of the truth or even more than a little of it. So of all our problems, the biggest one is this: our immigrant problem. Everybodys an immigrant to start with, but weve forgotten. We have a huge advantage in dealing with this problem that we lack in many of our parochial challenges, however. Immigrants dont hate us. No matter where they come from, usually they just want a little of what we already have: the good life. Two chickens or a zesty ratatouille made from locally grown organic produce in every pot. Two cars, two smart phones, two televisions, two nearby shopping malls, and two children who attend public schools we dont pay much for, before winning scholarships to college so we dont have to pay for that, either. Thats what immigrants want, and the rest of it is beside the point. Do they want to eat food like the food they remember back home? Do they want to use a language or practice a religion theyre comfortable with? Do they want to dress like their parents used to or raise their children like they were raised, but with more opportunity? Some do, some dont. Do they want to be welcomed by us? Well, sure. But thats not something us other immigrants always offer them, as the Pope knows. People who remember that theyre immigrants from the stars, from another country or culture, from another town, even tend to offer the embrace. But those of us who forget, who think were owners in this blink-brief journey from ashes to ashes and stars to stars, dont. So what happens when a nation like ours forgets what we are a huge immigrant ship of state, with the Statue of Liberty flying from our main mast? What will happen when we ignore the fact that we came first from the stars, then very recently and through our parents or grandparents from Europe or Africa or Asia? What happens when the most immigrant large nation that has ever existed on the planet begins to descry immigrants? I dont know, but Ill bet the Pope was wondering the same thing. And Ill bet hes certain of this: Its a problem. o u d b m a roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

At first it said it would take 10,000 Syrians. Now it says it will increase the annual U.S. overall refugee intake from 70,000 to 100,000 during the next three years to help deal with the migrant wave deluging Europe. The Obama administrations attitude used to be that Syria is a faraway country of which we know nothing, and it stood by while Syria descended into mayhem and madness. It turns out that Syria is not so far away that some of its nearly biblical exodus half of the countrys population is displaced wont touch our shores. If the U.S. is letting a guilty conscience prod it into taking some of that flow, it shouldnt. The U.S. is already incredibly generous to migrants, and settling Syrians here is not the most cost-effective or sensible way for us to help. The U.S. is already the migrant capital of the world. It is host to about 20 percent of the worlds international migrants, even as it represents less than 5 percent of the global population, according to the Migration Policy Institute. About a quarter of the U.S. population is foreign-born or the children of immigrants. Our generosity has extended to Muslim migrants. Before the European crisis, the Pew Research Center projected that by 2030, the U.S. would have a larger number of Muslims than any European country besides Russia and France. The U.S. already has been dealing with its own, smaller-scale migrant crisis. More than 100,000 migrants from Central America came here last year, and the vast majority arent going back. There are tens of thousands more this year. Notably, no European country is offering to welcome any as a sign of its good international citizenship. Taking people and flying them halfway around the world to come live in an alien society is much easier said than done. It used to be that refugees to the U.S. were sponsored by a family or a church. Now they are supported by a panoply of government programs on top of traditional welfare benefits, from food, housing, clothing and job training, to day care, transportation assistance and English classes, to guidance on what assistance they are entitled to as refugees. If this sounds involved and expensive, it is. Then theres the question of security. Given that there are no records about the refugees and we wont be cooperating with the Syrian government, any definitive screening will be next to impossible. Even if the vetting is perfect, the lesson of Somali refugees in the U.S. is that a poorly assimilated population of Muslim immigrants can provide a recruiting pool for radicals. The displaced Syrian refugees should find refuge, just not necessarily here or in the West. There are any number of nearby Muslim countries that are obvious destinations. We should (at the very least) take the resources that we would devote to resettling Syrian refugees and spend them on helping the front-line states in the Middle East. The first step to getting a handle on U.S. immigration policy is not consent to always saying more. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION t p m t t I p rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Shallow HalWatching the migrant crisis unfold in Europe is a horrifying spectacle. Four million Syrians are on the move looking for safety and a new life far from the civil war that has enveloped their country, and there are hundreds of thousands more following their example, fleeing from the political chaos in the Middle East and Africa. We watch the events unfold, removed by distance from the chaos. We are undecided about how much of this is really our business. We send money, about $9 billion in humanitarian aid, but political uncertainty compromises the welcome we might offer to the displaced. We are undecided about whether the nation should continue to embrace or just jettison the historical ideal we hold of America as a nation of immigrants. The 2016 presidential campaign may answer the question. The debate began months ago with the Republicans duking it out. You would think the gravity of the countrys issues would require a sober, dignified and elevated discussion with regard to the choice of our next president. Instead, we are having a prolonged happy hour of electoral insobriety indulgent, unhinged and devoid of selfdiscipline. We just cannot stop ourselves from having another round. The blowout atmosphere is courtesy of Donald Trump. In its aftermath, he has also created a 24/7 cycle of inebriated news. There is something familiar about the guy. You feel you have met him before. Wait. Now you remember. He is the obnoxious loudmouth with the deep pockets. He made his reputation by showing up in a crowded bar, flashing coin and shouting, All the drinks are on me! His popularity is instant, backslaps all around. Patrons charge forward to extort libations from the barkeeps who have lost control of the pour. Bedlam erupts. Not a sane and sober person is present to temper the crowd. The instigator takes it all in, enjoying the chaos he has caused. That pretty much describes Trump and his effect on the Republicans primary process. Voters expecting an informed debate are entertained instead with a game of trivial pursuits. Individual candidates provide no clue as to how their proposed policies spell relief for millions of Americans in economic despair. They are too busy responding to the incendiary remarks Trump tosses like rotten meat into a lions den, observing with gusto the frenzy it causes. He is hugely successful at drawing his fellow conservatives deep into the tar pit of cultural absolutism, their morality and reason lost as they sink. They mimic the competitor they most fear and despise. Trump is laughing all the way to the top of the polls. The second Republican debate was a three-hour sequel to Shallow Hal, a movie featuring a character by that name fixated on beauty that is only skin-deep. The CNN version featured the candidates each playing their version of Shallow Hal. All are drawn like a moth to the far rights flame, oblivious to the nihilism that is hidden beneath its glowing appeal. Shallow Hals want only to date the radical right. The wallflowers are the compassionate conservatives who advocate governance through compromise. They may as well have reject written on their foreheads. Their longing for a party of diverse constituents dancing together is a fantasy. The Shallow Hals cannot shake their attraction for the partys dangerous but sexy hardliners. Its a torrid love affair doomed to break the GOPs heart. Worse, the obsession with superficiality is spreading beyond the politicians who have already succumbed. Blame the 24-hour news cycle. Keeping things superficial makes a constant dribble of breaking news possible. It is everywhere. Post-debate, the networks delivered lightweight political chum to keep their audiences interested. They rated the performance of each of the candidates as if the debate were an audition for a high school play. The best performer was the metric used to discern who won the debate. The benediction? It is not what the candidates say but how they say it that really matters. Suppose it happens theyre right? A horse named Performance overtakes the field and wins the race by a nose. President Trump deports 12 million illegal immigrants and an unknown number of American citizens. A humanitarian crisis erupts in the southern hemisphere four times greater than the present Syrian crisis. Global leaders close their borders to U.S citizens around the world. President Fiorina funds the strongest military on the face of the planet but she tanks the American economy to do it, adding $500 billion to the $5 trillion the Pentagon will spend over the next 10 years. Hewlett-Packard warned us. We did not listen. President Carson addresses the nation. A national epidemic of measles is sweeping the country. Government policy no longer mandates vaccinations as essential to maintaining public health. The White House is reconsidering the policy. And so on and so forth. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

ROOTED IN NAPLESGiving thanks that dress-down day comes but once a yearWith two children attending different schools and two working adults in charge of them, Im sure its not difficult to believe our family is a little pressed for time. Charging from one end of town to the other and slapping dinner on the table (or on a bad night, Cheerios and a fruit bowl) over homework tears are not challenges unique to our family. We load our SUV one braying kid at a time like everybody else, so Im hoping (praying) were not the only family whos struggling to get it together this school year. To illustrate how far weve fallen, let me relay the scenario that played out in our living room this morning. Per several emails from our daughters school, we knew without a doubt that today was a dress-down day. Julia had been planning all week which ensemble would best communicate her righteously awesome personality; thankfully, it has been clean and hanging in her closet since August when school uniforms came back into rotation. The poor girl woke up, ate breakfast efficiently (for once) and proceeded to have either myself or her father veto not only her first choice but her second and third choices, too, because in the intervening weeks since summer, Julia has outgrown every single play dress she owns. Every. Single. One. Dresses were the only acceptable option for dress-down day, as I knew, she knew and her dad knew that every other girl in her kindergarten class would show up all frills and furbelows. We also knew several of their mothers would flout the dress code and send their daughters to school in thin shoulder straps and adorably flimsy, sparkly sandals (In fact, one spent the day in a tiara.) I had just a few run-ins with the clothing police when I was a student, and Im just not willing to spend my energy fighting for Julias honor on that front. Its too easy to avoid conflict and too stupid to waste time resolving. We do what were told when it comes to her school attire. After we finally settled on properly fitting shorts and a T-shirt she grudgingly deemed acceptable, we moved on to fight about her feet for dressdown day. Unfortunately, the girl lives in Crocs at home and had also managed over the summer to outgrow all serviceable footwear besides her school shoes. We were missing one of her sparkly loafers, shes scuffed a hole through her favorite Mary Janes and her Crocs would likely to twist an ankle, probably her favorite one. White gym sneakers were slapped on and she was rushed out the door five minutes late. My sense of relief died when I found her homework on the kitchen table, right where I had left it when I started early morning chores Id ignored the night before. Seriously, what breed of halfwits does this poor child have for parents? James and I have now received just the right amount of passive-aggressive notes from teachers to remain on their good side, but we are veering toward the danger zone. Some parents are deemed those parents the first week of school, but as long as we coursecorrect immediately, we still have a chance at being considered squarely adequate parental units. Adequacy is pretty much all I aim for in life, anyway. Am I volunteering in her classroom three times a week? Nah, but Im pretty sure those parents are just making up for all the sugar they load into their kids lunches. Am I tempted to spend $25 a week on cafeteria food? Absolutely, but I settle for $10 on a bad week. But will Julia arrive at school with nail polish, jewelry and a tiara, items her teacher specifically asked to be left at home? No. No, no, no, no. Who has the will and time to fight that request? There are so many other potential conflicts that arise in school environments that Im not going to directly defy school rules and spend 10 minutes painting Julias fingernails. She has more important work to do than compare her perfectly serviceable denim shorts to a tiara and glittery slippers. By the way, parents put the school in the really awkward position of interrupting a kids instructional time to address a violation that is so petty. Stop it! Just stop it! We had plenty of adorable violations we could have thrown on her to avoid mutually tormenting each other, but we didnt. Anyway, the rules set a baseline of accomplishment for me. If I didnt have a dress code to follow, Julia would wear tap shoes and a beach cover-up every day because without the threat of punishment, I have no discipline and she has no taste (yet). And if not for the strict tardiness policy, only God and her father know when that child would arrive at school. James, the least punctual person I have ever met, most likely launches her like a bowling ball through the crowd of hovering parents into the classroom, bell ringing behind them. But function is what matters when it comes to caring for kids, not form. I dont really care if he has to organize an airlift to get Julia onto school property before 8 a.m., and I dont care if I have to beat her clothes against the rocks in our retention pond to ensure she has a clean uniform. If it gets done, I dont care what fools we look like doing it. Just please, God, dont let Julia grow out of her uniforms yet theyre all I have going for me. Lindsey Nesmith hopes her daughter has learned to tuck and roll when she flies into her classroom. i m p o s lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com

Habitat Collier has built more than 1,800 homes since it first started constructing homes in Immokalee in 1978. These homes are purchased with interest-free mortgages based on financial ability to pay and require hundreds of hours of sweat equity on the part of the homeowners, who not only help build homes, but also go through homeownership education classes to help them succeed. Habitat Collier recently completed 184 homes in the Regal Acres subdivision in southeastern Naples. Construction has begun on Golden Gate Estates parcels that will include 23 homes, and building will soon begin in the new 55-home subdivision called Legacy Lakes off Immokalee Road east of Collier Boulevard. Construction continues at Faith Landing in Immokalee. Money is the critical component to being able to build more homes. Rents are rising, but wages are not, and that causes a shortage of options for many Collier County families, Ms. Lefkow says. She and her staff are seeing the dire results of the housing crisis in the Naples area on a daily basis, she says. Were seeing homeless and nearly homeless families. Studies of children in Habitat Collier homes have shown that providing safe housing helps children do better in school. For some, having a quiet place to study for the first time in their lives has allowed them to excel in math and reading.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA28 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 HEALTHY LIVINGDiet, exercise, smoking habits and genes interact to affect eye disease risk NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHPeople with a genetic predisposition for age-related macular degeneration significantly increased their odds of developing the blinding eye disorder if they had a history of heavy smoking and consistently did not exercise or eat enough fruits and vegetables, according to an observational study of women funded by the National Eye Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. Eating a healthy diet and getting exercise have been shown in earlier studies to protect against AMD, a leading cause of vision loss among people age 50 and older. Findings from this latest study, conducted by a team of investigators at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, suggest that genetic and lifestyle factors may contribute to AMD in a synergistic way. The findings were published online in the journal Ophthalmology. If you have a family history of AMD, the good news is that the study findings suggest that there are things you can do to potentially lower your risk of developing AMD yourself, said Julie A Mares, Ph.D., of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The study teams were led by Dr. Mares and Barbara A. Blodi, M.D., in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, in collaboration with investigators from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, and Oregon Health Science University, Portland. The researchers studied the risk among women ages 50 to 79 years who had participated in an ancillary investigation of the much larger Womens Health Initiative, an observational study that has tracked the health-related behaviors and outcomes of more than 160,000 women since 1991. For the current study, first author Kristin J. Meyers, Ph.D., and her team evaluated the diet and exercise patterns of 1663 women and categorized them into lowest-, moderateand highest-risk groups. They also evaluated whether the women smoked and, if so, how many years they smoked a pack of cigarettes or more each day. They also assessed genetic data from the women to determine whether they carried known genetic risk factors for AMD. Among women with stable diets, those who carried two high-risk genetic markers, smoked at least seven pack-years, and were in the highest-risk diet and exercise categories were more than four times more likely to have AMD compared to those women who did not have genetic risk factors and who ate a healthy diet and got at least 10 hours per week of light exercise (such as housework or walking at a pace you could sing to) or at least eight hours of moderate activity (such as brisk walking). In addition to lifestyle contributions, vitamin D levels may play a synergistic role with genetic factors, according to the findings of another study by the same team involving 913 study participants. Amy E. Millen, Ph.D., that studys first author, found that blood levels indicating vitamin D deficiency (less than 12 ng/ mL of 25 hydroxyvitamin D) were associated with a 1.8-fold increase in the odds of having AMD among women with no risk markers, but a 6.7-fold increase in the odds of having AMD among women with two risk markers, compared with women who had no genetic risks and adequate levels of vitamin D. The findings of the vitamin D study, which was also funded by NEI, were published in JAMA Ophthalmology. The findings of both studies support the notion of biologic synergy. That is, that ones genes, lifestyle factors and nutrition all come together in a synergistic way to mediate inflammation, which is a key mechanism involved in AMD, said Dr. Mares. NEI leads the federal governments research on the visual system and eye diseases. NEI supports basic and clinical science programs that result in the development of sight-saving treatments.

Muhammad Rahim al-Afghani has relentlessly proclaimed his innocence, and Mr. Warner released a series of charming letters from his client intended to humanize him. Al-Afghani commented on Lebron James, Caitlyn Jenner, the Ashley Madison website and, for some reason, South Dakota, but with the recent publicity, Match.com appears to have suspended the account.Latest self-declared rightOfficials in Carroll County, Md., finally released a woman in August after she had been detained for 67 days just for declining to give her name to a traffic patrolman (who had stopped her for a broken taillight). In her idiosyncratic understanding of the U.S. Constitutions Fifth Amendment, to not be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against (herself) means keeping her identity hidden from police. Eventually, sheriffs deputies captured her fingerprints, and since they matched no outstanding warrants, she was released.Leading economic indicators Adam Partridge Auctioneers in Liverpool announced in September that the equivalent of $10,000 would be the starting bid on a 2-pound mass of whale vomit (hardened into a chunk by aging in ocean waters) picked up by a beachcomber in Wales.

Play with him! BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickA dogs play behavior is unmistakable. We all recognize the play bow: forelegs down, rear up in the air, mouth open in a big smile and tail wagging madly. Sometimes the play bow is accompanied by verbal encouragement in the form of a stutter-bark (arr-ruff!) or a noisy growl thats all in fun. If a play bow isnt enough to get you (or another dog) to join in the game, your dog might bring a favorite toy or ball and drop it in front of you, just in case you need more of a hint. When you toss a ball for your dog, play tug, or participate in a canine sport such as agility, nose work or rally, youre doing a lot more than just having a good time with him. Play provides exercise, reduces stress and improves motor skills, to name just a few of its benefits. Dogs who get plenty of playtime usually dont become frustrated or bored. They are less likely to get in trouble for nuisance chewing, digging and barking, and they tend to have better social skills with both people and other dogs. Play is a fascinating subject for scientists and dog lovers alike. Even though some play behaviors dont always seem to make sense, we know that it has an important role in learning. Think part social bonding, part practice for behaviors that will be important for survival in adulthood: fighting, hunting and running away. Puppies start playing almost as soon as they can walk. Whether they are playing bitey-face or chase with another dog, grabbing and shaking a toy to kill it or playing fetch with you, puppies are learning skills that will serve them well throughout life, including how to interact with other dogs and people and how to develop a soft mouth so they dont accidentally hurt anyone. Dogs invent games, too. They might not lie awake at night thinking of how to build a better chew toy, but they learn quickly what actions work best to instigate play. You know, like dragging your underwear out into the living room to get you to chase them. Teaching tricks is a fun way to play with your dog, at the same time giving him a mental workout. Depending on what your dog likes to do, his natural behaviors and his physical agility, try teaching wave, play dead, sit pretty, spin, speak or roll over. If your dog already does some of those things naturally, you can use a clicker, treats and praise to reinforce the behavior and put it on cue so he does it on command. Thats how I taught my dog Twyla to roll over and play dead and my dog Harper to sit pretty and push a ball with her nose. They already did those things on their own; I just gave the games a name and rewarded the dogs for doing them. Play is a great training aid. If your dog asks you to play, ask him to perform a sit, down or fun trick first. Many working dogs are rewarded not with treats, but with a fast game of fetch or tug. Play helps them to unwind after an intense search or speedy sled-dog race. Play helps dogs to become comfortable with being touched and with sudden movements. When we play with our dogs, they associate us with good times. That might be the best thing about play: It helps to strengthen the human-animal bond. Cat lovers, dont feel left out. Play is just as important and beneficial for felines. Play on! Play engages a pets cognitive and motor skills. Pets of the Week>> Bianka is a spayed, 4-year-old Labrador mix.

E. * * * EC13005050 Tamarian Rugs The Th e Makes The Room THE DIVA DIARIESWhy cant insurance cover a post-surgery spa visit?As your poor discontented diva pens this missive, her surgery recovery moves at a slow, but certain pace. My dear readers may remember about three weeks ago when I detailed my latest injury due to my most recent attempt at healthy living. It went pretty much like this: So I increased my crunches to a routine of 100 forward crunches and 100 reverse crunches. Boy, did they hurt. But theyre supposed to, right? I could hear Jane Fonda urging, Feel the burn! Then I landed in the emergency room with an incarcerated umbilical hernia. If youve ever had an abdominal hernia, you know what Im talking about. If you havent, I wont get into too much detail, just in case you have a low cringe factor. Suffice it to say, I crunched my guts out. Alas, that which one crunches out must be stitched back in. So, under the knife I skittishly went. When I showed up at the hospital the morning of my operation shaking, nervous and with my Advanced Directives (living will) in hand, I had to wonder about folks who actually sign up for surgery willingly. I am NOT judging trust me. I know plenty of people who have gone under the knife for cosmetic reasons. Getting a procedure or three is almost the norm these days. Usually, its the eyelids or breast implants; often its both (maybe even at the same time). Either way, nobody makes a big deal about it except ME. To me, its a really big deal that you cant eat or drink anything after midnight before surgery so that you wont inhale your stomach contents into your lungs while under anesthesia, thus increasing risk of DEATH. Its alarming that you have to wash your entire body twice before surgery with special soap to decrease your risk of infection. And, am I crazy, or isnt it jarring when the check-in nurse asks if youll want religious clergy in case something goes wrong? Not to mention the needles, the IV and the heart monitor beeping and beeping and continuously beeping. It all feels very life and death to me, because it IS. Thats why I think it takes a very strong person to decide that bags under her eyes are so distressing they must be surgically fixed. Personally, I would rather just go buy a new concealer than fill out living will papers. Whether its new make-up or a push-up bra, Im all about finding a less invasive way to deal with my flaws. Because, you see, I am a lily-livered lightweight. A chicken. A great, big scaredy cat. As it is, all my incarcerated umbilical hernia required was a tiny incision made below my bell y butt on, a procedure with an estimated twoto three-day recovery period. Yet here I am nearly a week later, still on the sofa, cuddling a heating pad, popping Percocet and shamelessly nursing a pint of Ben & J errys Peanut Butter Cookie Ice Cream. I am still confused as to why my insurance plan wont pay for two weeks at the lovely and relaxing Canyon Ranch Resort & Spa after belly button hernia repair. Its not fair. So, to all the brave souls who have taken the bull by the horns and gotten things altered when they were unhappy with their appearance, I salute you. If I werent such a nervous Nellie, theres a long list of things Id have fixed, trust me. If only I werent so anxious. And if only my policy covered Canyon Ranch. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGStriking the balance between inflation and deflationI own a business buying and selling estate jewelry and diamonds, and so I hear some wild stories. From the couple that is shocked when the necklace they bought on a street corner in the Caribbean for $50 turns out to be a fake, to the elderly woman who has a 6 carat diamond that was given to her by the prince of Saudi Arabia, I have heard some amazing tales. But one thing I have never heard at our showroom is, Gee, I really would love to buy that beautiful ring but the price is just too low. Can I pay another $1,000 for it? As consumers, we all want the lowest prices we can possibly get. But if that is the case, why does the Fed actually want inflation and rising prices in the economy? To state it another way, why is some inflation better than no inflation or even deflation for economic growth? To answer this question, lets examine an economy that is suffering from deflation or falling prices. On the surface, this seems like something positive. Who wouldnt want to live in a world where you know the things you buy every day will just keep falling in price? First, think about your buying habits in this scenario. You probably would hold off on any purchases for as long as you can. Why buy a shirt today for $50 if you could buy it in a month for $45 unless you absolutely needed it now? In a deflationary environment, people tend to postpone buying goods and services which puts a damper on economic growth. A second problem with deflation is that it increases the cost of borrowing money and thus penalizes borrowers. In an economy with falling prices, a dollar in the future is worth more than a dollar today. Therefore, when a borrower needs to repay her debts in the future, she will have to pay back the loan with higher-priced currency. This is in addition to whatever interest rate her creditor charges for lending the money. So deflation actually acts as an incentive for consumers not to borrow money to buy cars and homes and other big-ticket items. Again, this will have an effect of slowing economic growth. A third problem with deflation is its effect on corporations. If you are the CEO of a company and know that the prices at which you can sell your products will decline in the future, you have two choices. You can either accept lower margins or cut costs. Given most CEOs are paid on their companys profitability, you can easily guess which of these choices a typical CEO would pick. And since the one expense that a corporate leader can trim somewhat easily is labor costs, wages typically go down and unemployment goes up when an economy experiences deflation. And once again, this will lead to a declining economy. Obviously, these three economic problems are very scary for an economy, but what makes deflation especially troublesome is that it often leads to a vicious cycle that feeds on itself. For example, you can have a situation where even minimal deflation results in consumers postponing purchases, which leads to lower corporate profits. Companies compensate by cutting employees and lowering prices to increase sales, leading to more deflation. This translates to fewer loans and less people buying cars and homes, which leads to more pricecutting and even lower prices and the cycle keeps going. At this point, it takes significant actions to fix the economy. So for all the reasons stated above, the Fed is keen to make sure prices slowly rise. Of course, high inflation is just as bad as deflation. Can you imagine a world where the price of the things you buy doubles each week? There would not be much of an incentive to save money or invest in anything. That is why price stability is so important to the worlds central bankers. But for now, with lower labor costs in much of the world, technology costs falling each day, low energy prices, and increased worker productivity, deflation is a much greater concern than inflation. That is why I believe low interest rates will be with us for much longer than people anticipate as central banks fight against this decline in prices. But please, believe me when I say that no matter how much deflation the world is facing today, you just cant buy a 14k gold necklace for $50. Trust me on that.

Ms. Cheffys simple idea to retrofit public-transportation busses that could haul a number of bicycles for commuters who could then get to work or shopping won a shark-tank competition for good ideas; And finally, about 50 people took advantage of the free bicycle-for-a-day loaner program along Punta Gordas 18 miles of bicycle and pedestrian pathways. The pathways connect homes, parks and commercial shopping zones. The freebike program is funded by the nonprofit Team Punta Gorda, which counted 5,000 users in 2014, the programs inaugural year. All that energetic commotion could ultimately prove to be a huge economic boon to the Florida of the future, and it comes on the heels of the U.S. Surgeon Generals call to action earlier in September. Bicycle-pedestrian apologists cite that call-to-action as potentially the most important federal support for their efforts in years. What if we labeled unwalkable neighborhoods like we do cigarettes? a blogger wrote on the Transportation For America website. A similar call from the surgeon general in 1964 was the watershed event that kicked off a decades-long decline in cigarette use.In the communitiesTo many of those who look at our contemporary and future cities, walking and bicycling is about a lot more than just health. Those who create cities where people can walk or bicycle to work or to shop, will create wealth, too. And not simply because healthier people reduce the huge drag on the American health care system that obesity and related diseases bring. This is not something you have to do guesswork on, walkable cities theres a formula that I discovered at Carnegie Mellon University in May, says Mayor Henderson, who attended a conference there for American city leaders. In downtown Fort Myers where pedestrians crowd streets paved with the same restored bricks Mr. Edison and his wife, Mina, once strolled, many elements of the formula are already in place, he notes. But elsewhere in the city and county and in spite of miles of trails, walking and bicycling is as dangerous, or more so, than anywhere else in the United States. That fact is borne out by the high per-capita statistics for bicycle and pedestrian fatalities and injuries on the Southwest coast. There is pent-up demand for walkable communities, says Darla Letourneau, a leader of the nonprofit BikeWalkLee, which promotes walking and bicycling safely through the region. Those areas around the country that have created vibrant walkable neighborhoods are reaping the economic benefits from their investment, while Florida lags behind. Much is at stake for Southwest Florida in making our roadways and streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists. Palm Beach County leaders, and especially those in West Palm, appear to be ahead in the game of catch-up, or as the term of art has it, urban infill. The European journey undertaken by Mayor Muoio and Mr. Clemente, for example, was paid for by a grant from the Knight Foundation, which has chosen to support specifically 26 urban areas in the United States vigorously trying to improve the quality of life on their streets. In Florida, those include all of Palm Beach County, along with the cities of Tallahassee, Bradenton and Miami. West Palms Mayor Muoio in a press release praised European cities in general for offering a lot of valuable place-making lessons. Both she and Mr. Clemente, who directs the 46-year-old special taxing district downtown, applauded Copenhagen in particular for its combined use of mass transit and bicycles. Copenhagen is the best example in the world of how to design a city for people, instead of fitting people into a city structure, he said. But the grant offers more than just a trip for two to Copenhagen. In midOctober, urban designers from Denmarks Gehi Architects, who helped make Copenhagen the ultimate in pedestrian and bicycle friendly cities, will travel to West Palm Beach to offer ideas and consultation. And this week the Knight Foundation kicks off its second annual Knight Cities Challenge, beginning Oct. 1. The Challenge ultimately awards $5 million to fund the best new ideas to be implemented in any of the 26 Knight communities nationwide. Applicants have until Oct. 27 to submit their ideas to knightcities. org and winners will be announced in early 2016, according to the organization website. Last years winner, a planner in Philadelphia, won for an idea he called popup pools created in neighborhoods all over the City of Brother Love. In Naples, Immokalee and elsewhere, meanwhile Neapolitans Ms. Cheffy and Ms. Brainard have pointed out that walkability is not just important for health reasons, but for economic reasons. People want to walk, and theyll pay for the privilege of walking or pedaling safely and comfortably from their homes to destinations that include shopping and eating or recreational opportunities. When businesses get on board to help make that happen, usually their incentive is economic and practical, not just charitable, say promoters of such urban environments. The list of sponsors in the Naples area is therefore significant as an indicator that walkability is a money-maker and everybody is starting to recognize it: there are banks, real estate companies, breweries, restaurants and hotels, major wealth consultants and major supermarket chains, along with bicycle and running shops, and many others helping to fund the Coalition and its efforts. Punta Gorda Councilwoman Nancy Prafke, who helped lead Team Punta Gorda efforts to make Charlotte County more accessible to bicyclists and pedestrians after Hurricane Charley dismantled the place more than a decade ago, reflects the pragmatism of many elected leaders as well. Team Punta Gorda hired a renowned urban planner to develop a citizens master plan, she recalls of retrofitting her town. Yes, becoming more bicycle and pedestrian friendly fits in with the new urbanism. So we can choose to take the view of a planner or a governmental entity or the medical community or the business community, and we can cite all the positive reasons why we think this is good, and thats fine. But in reality, what todays residents want are more active lifestyles. So in my view, were looking to satisfy the desire of todays residents who support active lifestyles. Thats the first reason for doing this. Fort Myers Mayor Henderson seconds that notion: People move to infill cities so they can be closer to work and amenities, both public and recreational. And so it follows that walkability would drive the value of the environment up economically as well as in terms of desirability. >> What: Meeting Market Demands for Walkable Urban Communities, all-day seminar >> When: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15 (doors open 7:30 a.m.) >> Where: Harborside Event Center, downtown Fort Myers >> Cost: $55 per person (special student pricing available) >> National keynote speakers: Joe Minicozzi, Urban3; Professor Chris Leinberger, George Washington University; Jeff Speck, author of Walkable City >> Other speakers: Cary Clickstein, mayor, Delray Beach; Tim Hernandez, principal, New Urban Communities Corp.; Brooke Myers, president, Emerge Real Estate Ventures, LLC; Larry Pierce, director, Realco Group; Kevin Rickard, principal, New Urban Communities Development Corp.; Bill Spikowski, urban planner, Spikowski Planning Associates; Ken K.

The business went public in 1881. I was spun off from one of the largest global consumer packaged goods companies in 2008, and am now the top international tobacco company, selling my wares in more than 180 markets. I boast six of the worlds top 15 international brands, including Marlboro, the top cigarette brand worldwide. I bought Canadas Rothmans in 2008. My revenue tops $28 billion annually, and my profit margin is hefty, too, topping 25 percent. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Minimize Those Fund FeesYou cant know how a mutual fund will perform for you in any given year, but you can know how much it will charge you in fees. Learn more about fees in order to pay less and probably improve your portfolios performance, too. Lets review some key fund fees. Loads: These are simply sales charges commissions paid to brokers who sell funds. Some funds have them and many dont, and they can be as steep as 8.5 percent, though theyre rarely that high. Still, make a $10,000 investment in a fund with a front-end load of 5.75 percent, and youll immediately lose $575, essentially investing only $9,425. Ouch.Expense Ratio: This number reflects what percentage of a funds assets are deducted from it each year, typically to cover normal operating expenses. The average expense ratio for all stock funds is roughly 1.3 percent, but some funds charge 2 percent or even more. The following two fees are included in the expense ratio: 12b-1 fee: This fee ranges from 0.25 percent to a maximum of 1 percent and covers marketing and distribution. Ironically, fund shareholders are paying to attract additional money to the fund even though when funds grow very large, their performance can suffer. Regulators are considering reforming 12b-1 fees, but fear not fund companies may make up for that lost revenue elsewhere. Management fee: This fee compensates the funds management regardless of their performance. These fees all add up and partly explain why most funds underperform the market average. If a fund gains 10 percent but charges you 2 percent in fees, your return is down to 8 percent. Thats why many investors rightfully prefer inexpensive index funds. Vanguards S&P 500 index fund (VFINX), for example, charges only 0.17 percent annually. Still, there are great managed funds out there with relatively low fees and market-beating track records.

A Chinese GrowerMy dumbest move was selling 9,000 shares of Baidu after its 10-for-1 split back in 2010. That was dumb! L., onlineThe Fool Responds: That does look like a regrettable move, as the stock was selling for around $70 per share after that split, and was recently around $140, twice that. (It actually topped $250 per share in 2014!) You didnt explain why you sold, though. If you no longer had confidence in the companys prospects, then selling was the right thing to do. Baidu is the parent company of Chinas largest search engine, with a market value recently near $50 billion. Its growth has been slowing, dismaying some investors, but its still growing and investing in further growth, too, in fast-growing categories such as video streaming and online-to-offline (O2O) initiatives. Those investments are quite promising: Its iQiyi video portal is reaching more than 500 million users, and its O2O businesses, the Qunar travel portal, Nuomi group-buying hub and Baidu Takeout Delivery, have seen their gross merchandise volume more than double over the past year. With billions in cash available, the company is well positioned to make strategic acquisitions to further position it for growth. If youre not too risk-averse and have a long-term investing horizon, you might aim to make up for your dumb move by getting back into Baidu. Its recent price is rather appealing. Win With WynnCasino and resort operators may not be the first place you look when the stock market is in a funk, but Wynn Resorts (Nasdaq: WYNN) deserves consideration. Its shares have lost more than half of their value over the past year, mainly due to a slowdown in the gambling mecca of Macau, China, where Wynn derives the majority of its revenue. The company cut its dividend significantly earlier this year, but it still yielded a solid 3 percent recently. The cut was made to help it plow more billions of dollars into further growth. Wynn is currently investing in its largest project to date: the Wynn Palace in Macau, which is to be a 1,700-room, $4.1 billion luxury casino resort. The Wynn Palace will be well positioned to capitalize on the Macau turnaround thats expected to take place in the coming years. CEO Steve Wynn has said he would rather keep a strong balance sheet than borrow money to pay a strong dividend. The company has an excellent record of generous distributions to shareholders, and in fact it has paid hefty special dividends on top of its normal payouts in all but one year since 2006. With the company investing billions into ambitious new projects and expected growth of nearly 8 percent per year over the next five years, patient shareholders may be handsomely rewarded. Split off from Kraft Foods (now Kraft Heinz) in 2012, I got to keep the global snack businesses, and now carry a market value near $68 billion. Some of my brands are quite old, with Cadbury dating back to 1824, Dentyne to 1899, Nabisco to 1901 and Triscuit to 1902. Eight of my brands, including Oreo, Tang, Trident and Cadbury, generate more than $1 billion in revenue annually. Another 44 brands generate more than $100 million apiece. I employ more than 100,000 people. Im No. 1 globally in cookies, chocolate and candy, and No. 2 in gum. Who am I? (Answer: Mondelez International) Cost Basis BasicsQHow do I figure out my cost basis and my gain when I sell a stock? M.B., Dalton, GeorgiaALets say that you buy 100 shares of MacDonald Farms Inc. (ticker: EIEIO) for $50 each, paying a $10 commission. Your cost basis is the purchase price ($5,000) plus the commission, or $5,010. The cost basis per share is $5,010 divided by 100, or $50.10. If you eventually sell the shares for $60 each, or $6,000, subtract the $10 commission on the sale and your proceeds will be $5,990, or $59.90 per share. Your taxable capital gain will be the difference $980, or $9.80 per share. ***QWhats a moving average? S.F., Warsaw, IndianaAImagine that youre looking at a table that shows the annual return of a mutual fund for 20 years. The numbers will probably fluctuate quite a bit perhaps 5 percent one year, 14 percent another. One way to smooth them out a bit, while still getting a sense of how they may be changing, is to calculate a moving average. For three-year moving averages, youll first average the returns for years 1, 2 and 3. Then youll average years 2, 3 and 4. Then years 3, 4 and 5, and so on, ending with years 18, 19 and 20. Youll end up measuring 18 three-year periods. While a graphed line of the original 20 numbers might have been jagged, with sharp peaks and valleys, the 18 three-year averages will produce a smoother line. Some investors study moving (or rolling) averages of stock prices closely. We dont see much value in that, though. Wed rather focus on a companys financial health, its competitive position and its longterm growth prospects. Want more information about stocks?

Traditionally a tepid month for the real estate industry, August delivered robust activity in many areas of Naples but particularly in south Naples, according to the latest statistics from the Naples Area Board of Realtors. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). South Naples is defined in the Southwest Florida MLS as encompassing properties in zip codes 34112 and 34113 (neighborhoods south of Davis Boulevard, west of Collier Boulevard and east of the U.S. 41/Fifth Avenue South intersection). Some of the larger neighborhoods in this area include, Lely, Treviso Bay, Isles of Collier Preserve, Lakewood, Kings Lake, Eagle Creek and Isle of Capri. This particular geographic area experienced the highest increases in overall pending sales, closed sales and median closed prices of all geographic area reported in August. Despite a 5 percent decrease in overall inventory for homes in the south Naples region from 575 homes in August 2014 to 547 homes in August 2015 broker analysts agree that the south Naples market is gaining in popularity as buyers are attracted to its investment potential and renewed growth. Pending sales (homes under contract) in south Naples jumped 26 percent from 112 pending sales in August 2014 to 141 pending sales in August 2015. Closed sales in this region increased 9 percent from 1,482 closed sales in the 12 months ending August 2014 to 1,610 closed sales in the 12 months ending August 2015. Interestingly, the median home price in south Naples experienced the highest increase of all 16457 Celebrita Court, Mediterra South Naples sales activity heating upSEE NABOR, B16 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ Naples | $1,449,000PARK SHORE SURFSEDGE TOGETHER WE ARE DEDICATED TO PROVIDING OUR PERSONALIZED CONCIERGE SERVICE TO OUR BUYERS AND SELLERS.

Mortgages are coming back in a big way too, says Steve Barker, advising broker for Equity Realty. The August report showed conventional sales amounted to 44 percent of all sales; whereas in August of 2013, conventional sales amounted to only 34 percent of all sales in that month. I believe we are starting to see a real trend back to home financing as many of the homeowners who lost homes in 2006, 2007 and 2008 are now able to qualify for new mortgages, Mr. Barker says. NABORs Pat Pitocchi, corporate trainer at Downing-Frye Realty, says one factor contributing to the impressive activity in August could be that buyers are concerned about an impending rate increase. Phil Wood, president and CEO of John R. Wood Properties, adds this concern might not be on just the buyers minds. Mr. Wood says he has heard several large banks are encouraging high-end buyers who have always favored purchasing homes with cash to consider applying for a mortgage to take advantage of the low rates. Aside from a steady shift of cash sales to more sales with conventional financing, Mr. Barker points out that there were 284 non-traditional sales (short sale and foreclosed sales) in August 2009 compared to only 49 such sales in August 2015. There simply isnt a huge presence of cash investors consuming the market anymore, he says. Activity in the upper end of the market was impressive in August, as evidenced in the NABOR report. Overall pending sales for homes in the $2 million and above category increased 58 percent from 19 pending sales in August 2014 to 30 pending sales in August 2015. This brackets overall median closed price also increased 14 percent, from $2,850,000 in the 12 months ending August 2014 to $2,230,000 in the 12 months ending August 2015. The NABOR August 2015 report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the overall findings: Overall pending sales increased 2 percent from 795 in August 2014 to 811 in August 2015. Overall closed sales increased 2 percent from 9,695 in the 12 months ending August 2014 to 9,870 in the 12 months ending August 2015. Overall median closed price increased 14 percent from $260,000 in the 12 months ending August 2014 to $297,000 in the 12 months ending August 2015. The overall median closed price for homes $300,000 and under increased 10 percent from $175,000 in the 12 months ending August 2014 to $192,000 in the 12 months ending August 2015. Overall inventory decreased 2 percent from 3,579 in August 2014 to 3,525 in August 2015. Overall inventory for homes $300,000 and under decreased 26 percent from 1,279 in August 2014 to 946 in August 2015. There is a 4.27-month supply of inventory. Average days on market decreased 4 percent from 81 days to 78 days. Rick Fioretti, NABOR president elect and broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Realty, points out that the 52 percent increase in the days on market for homes in south Naples from 63 days to 96 days could be a result of natural market correction. New construction in the south Naples area is impacting neighboring home values favorably, Mr. Fioretti says. Add the increase in commercial development near the U.S. 41 and Collier Boulevard exchange and the result appears to be that sellers realized their homes may have been undervalued and are now pricing them higher.

Vyne House on Schedule for November Completion at Talis ParkConstruction of Talis Parks highly anticipated Vyne House clubhouse Phase II is on-schedule for completion by midNovember. Located adjacent to the Great Lawn at the communitys Grand Piazza, Vyne House epitomizes the New Fashioned aesthetic developer Kitson & Partners has introduced at Talis Park. Rather than offering an expansive clubhouse more narr owly f ocused in design and function, Vyne House presents a series of lifestyle oriented spaces designed to be used every day, inviting users to come as they are in a relaxed format. The buildings are interconnected by covered outdoor walkways and wrapped around multiple courtyards offering the possibility of outdoor dining and entertaining. Talis Parks residents continue to enjoy Fionas Market Caf, the Core Fitness Center, and the Esprit Spa already open at Vyne House Phase I. Phase II will introduce Vyne Court, an open-air courtyard that is the centerpiece of Vyne House. In addition to serving as a point of entry, Vyne Court will provide a social space suited to hosting events. The upper level will include formal indoor dining, casual indoor and outdoor dining, a multipurpose room adjacent to Vyne Court, aerobics and cardio workout rooms, and a Wine Room/Board Room. The lower level will host the golf pro shop and locker facilities. Phase II will include completion of a resort-style pool with a large deck, as well as a stately rotunda overlooking the 18th green that will feature an oversized, two-sided fireplace. When Phase II is completed, Vyne House will include 32,052 square feet under air and 25,065 square feet of outdoor space. With the completion of Vyne House less than two months away, the appeal of Kitsons innovative Residences at Vyne House is becoming increasingly evident. An enclave of fourteen luxurious, penthouse-style condominium residences immediately adjacent to Vyne House and the Great Lawn, the Residences at Vyne Houses distinctive ambiance is based on the premise that location, exceptional service, choice, and style matter. A select group of homeowners will enjoy the convenience of life literally within steps of every amenity at Vyne House. A 24-hour, seven days a week concierge will provide owners at The Residences at Vyne House a level of personal service that is unique in condominium settings.

The floor plan choices include two-bedroom plus den, three bedroom, three bedroom plus den, and four-bedroom residences with a family room and great room. Several of the residences include expansive outdoor terraces overlooking the Great Lawn. A number of the north, west, and south, or north, east, and south facing residences also offer views of the lake that envelopes Il Corso, the Watercourse at Talis Park. Four penthouse residences range from 2,752 to 5,648 square feet with 12-foot ceilings, one of which is on the ground level and includes its own casita and overlooks 2,000 square feet of outdoor living space. The Residences at Vyne House provide spacious environments that live in a personal way. Standard finishes include hardwood flooring in the living areas, carpeted bedrooms, drywall ceilings, mud-set marble flooring and showers in the master bath, porcelain tile flooring and showers in the guest room baths, and an appliance package in the spacious island kitchens featuring a Wolf Induction cook-top, Wolfe microwave, SubZero refrigerator, and an ASCO dishwasher. Early purchasers may customize features and finishes not involving structural changes. Kitson has simplified the finish selection process by offering three interior styles created by Lori Fountain, IDS of F.T. Design, Inc. Fountains Villa Paradiso style is inspired by Vyne House and softly contrasts warm-toned Santorini wood flooring against light backgrounds.

Brookhill Harvest Bronze vanities in the master and guest baths will be topped by Navona cross-cut polished marble. The same marble will be used on the master bathroom floor and shower walls.

Light-toned Kalkun Winter White carpeting will be featured in the bedrooms. The Modern Retreat style features a crisp, contemporary ambiance. The design showcases driftwood-toned oak flooring and light grey kitchen cabinetry with slab doors that will complement the island and perimeters light grey stippled Pompeii quartz countertops.

Pat Clopton never had a burning desire to take her clothes off in public. But when the opportunity presented itself recently, the local actress, just a handful of weeks shy of 80, thought: What the hell? I cant imagine one other woman my age my friends, my contemporaries who would do this, she says.BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com SEE CHANCES, C4 CALENDARGIRLS MILA BRIDGER / COURTESY PHOTOSClockwise from left: Lois Kuehne, Suzanne Davies, Pat Clopton and Lori Riti.

The film is an intimate portrayal of a world-renowned chef, Georges Perrier, and his quest to keep Le Bec-Fin, the restaurant he has run in Philadelphia for 40 years, relevant. Chef Perriers contemporaries at Lutece, La Cote Basque, LOrangerie are gone and he is the last man standing of his generation. But how long can he reign? Hoping to reinvigorate Le Bec-Fin, he partners with young Nicholas Elmi, the winner of Top Chef in 2014. First-time director Erika Frankels King Georges follows Chef Perrier over four years from Le Bec-Fins raging inferno of a kitchen to quiet moments at home, capturing an intimate glimpse of a celebrated artist in the twilight of his career who realizes he is still hungry for seconds. Both Ms. Frankel and Chef Perrier will attend the NIFF screening and a Q&A session afterward. I am so honored to have King Georges chosen as the closing night film, Ms. Frankel says. I always think of Naples of as a great center of food and culture in the south. Shannon Franklin, NIFF executive and artistic director, is equally thrilled. This engaging and touching film is the perfect way to wrap up the festival weekend, she says. Sponsored by BNY Mellon Wealth Management, the NIFF 2015 Closing Night Film & Wrap Party begins with an awards ceremony at 7 p.m., immediately followed by the film presentation and Q&A. Tickets for $100 include drinks, light bites and dessert for audience members along with filmmakers and others celebrating the end of the festival weekend. Tickets are available by calling the ArtisNaples box office at 597-1900 or online at artisnaples.org. While the NIFF opening and closing night films and festivities take place at ArtisNaples, the approximately 40 other screenings Nov. 6-8 will be at Silverspot Cinema in Mercato. This years lineup includes domestic and international independent feature-length dramas, comedies and documentaries, as well as a selection of short films.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Speaking up, even when were afraid In her wise and insightful relationship guide Calling in the One: 7 Weeks to Attracting the Love of Your Life, author Katherine Woodward Thomas encourages us to ask ourselves: In what ways am I trying to manipulate a situation rather than asking directly for what I want? I recently read her book for the second time and, unlike in the first gothrough, I actually did all the exercises. When I reached this particular question, I pulled out my journal and began making a list of all the situations Im trying to manipulate instead of coming out and asking for what I want. To my surprise, nearly all the men in my life showed up on the list ex-boyfriends, former lovers, friends, neighbors. Shocking, because Ive always considered myself a truth-teller. I take pride in being vocal. But looking at the list I had to admit that I rarely speak up when it comes to romantic entanglements. There are several reasons why we do not assert ourselves in relationships, Mrs. Woodward Thomas says in her book, and most of them start with the F word fear. Theres the fear of rejection, the fear of abandonment and the fear of being humiliated. Shes right. I have a habit of downplaying what I really want from a partner because Im afraid of an endless list of things. Im afraid hell see how vast my needs are. Im afraid hell decide Im too much to handle. Im afraid hell know that I really like him. So I sit quietly and let my resentment build. And resentment, as anyone in a relationship will tell you, is anathema to love. In the most recent instance, the man Im seeing in St. Pete told me he could only make it down for half his usual visit. Although he said something about needing to help a friend move, what I heard was, You are not a priority for me. All my usual insecurities kicked in. I started to launch into my standard no-worries routine the one where I say, No problem, when what I mean is, How could you? But this time I stopped myself. Remembering Mrs. Woodward Thomas advice to speak up, instead I told him, Thats not enough for me. I need more time with you. He went quiet, and the muscles in my stomach knotted. The bottom line between making a clear, direct request instead of a manipulative demand simply masquerading as a request, Ms. Woodward Thomas says, is that you genuinely have the space for someone to say no. The man Im dating said, Ill see what I can do. It wasnt a no, but it wasnt a yes. Still, I had managed to voice an important truth. For someone else, the moment might have passed without significance. But for me, it marked something important. After all, whats the point in being in a relationship if we have to suppress our needs? Better to put them on the table and let our partner decide if he can meet them. And if not? At least we gave ourselves the opportunity to be heard. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

FLORIDA WRITERSPanhandle novel packs punch with murder, romance and family dynamics What Washes Up by Dawn Lee McKenna. Sweet Tea Press. 147 pages. Trade paperback, $9.99. This is the third book in Dawn Lee McKennas four-part The Forgotten Coast Florida Suspense Series, a tightly integrated sequence of books that is best enjoyed and appreciated if read in order. From my own experience, however, What Washes Up packs plenty of punch and has effective coherence when read on its own. If you are looking for intriguing characters, more than a bit of mayhem and crime, well-drawn relationships and a powerful sense of place, youll definitely enjoy this quick read. Lt. Maggie Redman is in a bad way. On leave from the sheriffs office while nursing a bullet-blasted hand and not allowed to work the case of her ex-husband Davids recent death by suspicious explosion, she comes across an unlikely scene with some of her colleague-friends: A wooden skiff is burning, and a fire-blackened man hangs dead from the front of the cabin. The sight and smell are nauseating. The corpse is that of one Rupert Fain, a drug dealer suspected of being Davids murderer (David himself had been involved with transporting drugs). Fain had been killed by a small caliber bullet before his body was hanged on the burning boat. Its quite a way to enjoy a day that was supposed to be an opportunity for Maggie and her boss/ boyfriend Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton to advance their relationship. Their negotiation of that relationship is one of the novels many engaging centers of interest. Others include Maggies role as mother of a 10-year-old son and a teenage daughter (who are staying with Maggies parents through this course of events) and her relationship with her parents. The author sketches these family dynamics with economy and skill, just enough to make them credible, distinctive and admirable to readers. A key phrase planted early in the novel is that of someone saying, Im tired of cleaning up Boudreauxs messes. The questions: Are these murders Boudreauxs mess? What else is part of the mess category? And is Bennett Boudreaux the Boudreaux being named? He is, after all, the man who said Fain was most likely Davids killer. Somehow, Maggie still has a case she can attend to: the severed leg of one Sport Wilmette, found in a shrimpers net shortly before Davids death. What else ties David, Fain and Wilmette together? A serial killer? As the novel develops, Ms. McKenna pays more and more attention to Boudreaux, an attractive, well-mannered criminal who is good to those he employs, including housekeeper Amelia and her mother, Miss Evangeline, who had been Boudreauxs nanny back in Louisiana. He owns a successful fishing depot and restaurant in town, and he has other successful enterprises as well (some on the wrong side of the law). He has two sons who figure significantly as the plot unfolds, and his nephew Gregorys suicide was one of Maggies cases. One of Maggies many secrets is that Gregory raped her when she was a teen, about the age her daughter is now. Such secrets and how to deal with them feed the novels psychological interest. Maggie cant help but be lured toward Boudreaux, and the attraction is mutual. Wyatt is at once jealous and worried about whether Maggie has lost her good sense. Yet Boudreaux is clearly a key to whats been going on in Apalachicola, a piece of the Florida Panhandle that the author describes with authority and skill. The working out of these complications would be enough for a short novel (or quartet segment), but theres more. A body washes up along the shore, and then many more. The survivor of this disaster is a young boy named Virgilio, whose parents and younger sister are among the dead. Agent Tomlinson from Homeland Security is on the case, and the local sheriffs office is assisting. The illegals frail, overcrowded boats had sunk. Turns out the people were Guatemalans en route to employment picking vegetables on a big farm owned by ... Bennett Boudreaux. Ms. McKenna manages all of the novels attendant details, motives for action and eventual outcomes with confidence, vividness and terrific pacing. Born and raised in Florida, she left for Tennessee many years ago, but Florida is still very much in her soul and imagination. If you download an e-version (from Amazon Kindle), youll find it quite an entertainment bargain.

Cooking shows leave her cold. Im not a foodie, she says. But I can boil water with the best of them. Shes Italian, on her fathers side, but, Im a funny Italian; my family would call spaghetti sauce, gravy. And contrary to the stereotype of the Italian grandmother who skillfully cooks up a feast, My paternal grandmother would use Ragu from a can. She would doctor it up. Her kids would make fun of what a bad cook she was. They made fun of her meatballs! I ate it, but I dont remember it tasting bad. But then, I really had nothing to compare it to. Ms. Damato grew up in Perth Amboy, N.J. Every Sunday the family faithfully went to her grandmothers house in Bayonne for dinner. We called her Grandma Bayonne. Shed serve Celantro frozen ravioli with doctored-up Ragu from a jar. And laughable meatballs. And then one Sunday a month, she would make roast beef. As for Ms. Damatos parents, her dad didnt cook at all. My mom was a fine cook, but everything was frozen, from a bag, she says. I dont think I ever ate fresh broccoli until I was in college. So its a surprise to find herself starring in I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti, a one-woman show that requires making a three-course meal from scratch in front of an audience and then serving it to a select few whove paid extra for the privilege. The show opens the new season on the ArtStudio stage at Florida Repertory Theatre in downtown Fort Myers. The set has a working stove and sink (and was designed by resident technical director Bruce Bailey, who recently died unexpectedly). Those who pay $35 in addition to the regular $45 for their ticket get wine, antipasta, ensalada mista (It means mixed salad, Ms. Damato says), bread and fresh pasta with a hearty meat sauce.Pasta from scratchBased on a memoir of the same name by Guila Melucci, I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti opens for previews Tuesday, Oct. 6. Opening night is Friday, Oct. 9. Today, I made pasta from scratch, Ms. Damato says proudly after a recent rehearsal. Its not that hard! I was worried about it. I used a pasta maker. Now I want to buy one. I make the dough, I put it through the pasta press, which makes it flat. And then the pasta machine cuts the pasta into shapes. It cuts it into spaghetti. Its like magic. There was steam everywhere when I cooked the pasta. Its lovely. I think its going to be pretty entertaining to watch someone cook and talk. Although she doesnt consider herself a bad cook, the actress says shes not at the level of her director, Michael Marotta, or of Florida Reps founder and producing artistic director, Robert Cacioppo. Both men are known for being skilled chefs. Mr. Marotta, she says, gives her little tips and tricks that make me look like a better cook than I am. For example, he showed me how to get the lemon zest off the zester, which is a plane grater, in a more economical way. When Mr. Marotta first saw I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti in Cincinnati, he emailed Mr. Cacioppo, suggesting itd be a great show for Florida Reps black box theater. And having seen Ms. Damato in Miracle on South Division Street, he requested she star in it. (Ms. Damato is also known for her comedic roles in other Florida Rep shows, including Slyvia and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.) Its very flattering that he specifically asked for me, she says.Serially unavailableThe play touches on universal themes. The woman Ms. Damato portrays is very smart, successful, sophisticated and funny yet shes unsuccessful in love. She makes a lot of concessions for the men in her life, she says. I understand that. She goes out of her way to cook these amazing meals for these men, and she gives so much of herself through these meals, yet she gets nothing in return. And she keeps making the same mistakes over and over again. Everyone can understand that. I know I certainly can. She questions: Why do I give so much of myself, when I dont get much back in return? The men she dates and talks about during the show are successful and smart, but one has a drinking problem, two are scared of commitment and one is too old for her. But in each case, she keeps doing the same thing over and over again. The men change, but she doesnt. I understand her in some ways, Ms. Damato says. Sometimes you just make concessions; you know things arent right, but you say, Nothings perfect, and you just push on. She does that a lot, until things reach a head, a boiling point, as it were, and the relationship dissolves and shes on to the next one. Its astounding that shes had so much trouble with love. You just dont understand. Why is this woman single? Shes smart, shes funny, shes an amazing cook. But, Ms. Damato points out, she continually finds emotionally unavailable men. Cooking is a comfort to her, she says. She says early on: You know how we Italians are. When we have things to work out, we work them out in the kitchen. I get therapy; you get to eat. The act of cooking and sharing is where she finds comfort. And, with I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti and Ms. Damato, it will be where audiences find much humor.

A personal relationship also can benefit from more of your attention. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Dont guess at what the facts might be if you hope to make the best decision possible. The wise course is to ask direct questions and act on the answers you get. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your efforts involving that pesky problem should soon show positive signs of being resolved. This would allow you to shift some of your focus in another direction. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) While you enjoy well-deserved praise for getting a difficult job done, theres no time to relax. A new challenge looms. Expect more support from a once-strong critic. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might still have explaining to do about your decision, but support grows as you continue to make your case. You also might want to start making plans for the upcoming holidays. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your moodier side might emerge this week. But the dark period should pass in time for the party-loving Lamb to go on a happy gambol with some very special people this weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Yet again, you show your skill at being able to indulge in your love of the arts this week while still taking care of practical matters, including some still-unfinished business matters. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A potential change might appear to be what youve been looking for. In any event, consider both the negative as well as the positive possibilities before making any sort of decision. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Relationships continue to dominate your aspect this week on a mostly positive level, with just a few problem areas you can smooth over. Also, try to be flexible about travel plans. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You love being on center stage, and while you absolutely purr at the sound of all that praise, be careful not to take on too many commitments at the expense of time spent with loved ones. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might feel that you need to get involved in a matter concerning a friend or relative. But while the issues appear to be cut and dried, they might not be. Get more facts before you act. BORN THIS WEEK: You insist on making decisions based on facts, not on popular opinions. Have you considered a career in science? PUZZLES

Sometimes he may have to do something unusual to accomplish his purpose, but if thats what the situation calls for, he does it. Consider this deal where South is in five clubs. It seems normal to win the heart lead with the ace, discarding a diamond, then cash the queen of trumps and stake the outcome on tw o spade finesses. As it happens, both finesses lose, and South goes down one because he must lose a diamond trick also. Unlucky, you could say, but if South is a more imaginative declarer, he makes the contract. Rather than rely on the 75 percent probability that East was dealt either the king or queen of spades, or both, which is essentially a matter of luck, South follows a different course of action that eliminates the luck factor. Instead of taking the king of hearts with the ace at trick one, he plays low from dummy and discards a diamond from his hand! Now the contract cannot be stopped, even though West holds two apparently certain spade tricks. Lets say West continues a heart at trick two. South discards another diamond on dummys ace, cashes the queen of trumps and ace of diamonds, then ruffs the ten of diamonds high. This is followed by a trump to dummys nine and a ruff of the jack of diamonds. Dummy now has the 8-7-2 of spades and J-10-4 of trumps; South has the A-J-10-9 of spades and A-8 of trumps. Declarer leads the eight of trumps to dummys ten, then plays a spade to his nine. West wins with the queen but must yield the contract, whatever he returns.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 new yearround service to Cancun, Mexico nonstop ights start Oct. 9 FILM CAPSULESThe Intern Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Rene Russo) The head (Ms. Hathaway) of an online fashion company hires a senior citizen intern (Mr. De Niro) who slowly has a positive impact on her. Its a nice, sweet, warm movie, and Mr. De Niro is adorable as a smart man whos hesitant to overstep his bounds. Rated PG-13.Everest (Jason Clarke, Keira Knightley, Jake Gyllenhaal) Famed mountain climber Rob Hall (Mr. Clarke) leads a group of civilians up Mount Everest. Its takes a while to get going, but when it does, hold on tight its pretty awesome. Rated PG-13.Black Mass (Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson) James Whitey Bulger (Mr. Depp) comes to power in Boston in the 1970s with the help of his old friend and FBI Agent John Connolly (Mr. Edgerton). The drama is compelling and Mr. Depps performance is excellent, but the movie isnt very dynamic visually, making it merely good, not great. Rated R. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (Dylan OBrien, Kaya Scodelario, Giancarlo Esposito) After escaping the Glade, Thomas (Mr. OBrien) and friends find themselves avoiding a deadly virus in a vast desert landscape. Although bloated and flawed in many ways, this sequel to The Maze Runner (2014) is redeemed by bold decisions not ordinarily seen in an adaptation of a YA novel. Rated PG-13.The Visit (Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan) Strange things occur late at night when siblings Becca (Ms. DeJonge) and Tyler (Mr. Oxenbould) visit their grandparents (Ms. Dunagan and Peter McRobbie) in rural Pennsylvania. Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) returns to form with this strong thriller that nicely mixes humor and horror. Rated PG-13. Mistress America (Greta Gerwig, Lola Kirke, Matthew Shear) A lonely, outcast college freshman (Ms. Kirke) gets a jolt from her exuberant and older future sister-in-law (Mr. Gerwig). In a funny and thoughtful way, writer/director Noah Baumbach deftly finds the haughty nothingness of a young generation thats never accomplished anything but is convinced it will conquer the world. Rated R.Best of Enemies 1/2(Gore Vidal, William F. Buckley, Sam Donaldson) In 1968, ABC News hired intellectuals Gore Vidal (a Democrat) and William F. Buckley (a Republican) to debate during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. The results changed TV news punditry forever. Its a wonderfully entertaining documentary about two people who positively loathed one another and the lengths (depths) they went to in order to win. Rated R.We Are Your Friends 1/2(Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski, Wes Bentley) An aspiring DJ (Mr. Efron) falls for his mentors (Mr. Bentley) girlfriend (Ms. Ratajkowski) in this version of the struggling artist fights to make his mark on the world story. If youre young, ambitious and in search of yourself, and/or if enjoy electronic music, give it a shot. If not, pass. You wont miss much. Rated R.

YesThe Martian is a terrific triumph of great storytelling, wonderful visuals, solid performances and the sheer perseverance of human will. This is one of the best films of 2015, and arguably the best film director Ridley Scott (Gladiator) has ever made which is saying a lot. The premise starts like a horror movie. While exploring the surface of Mars, a group of scientists is caught in a violent storm. Melissa (Jessica Chastain), Rick (Michael Pena), Beth (Kata Mara), Chris (Sebastian Stan) and Alex (Aksel Hennie) are able to escape on their shuttle, but Mark (Matt Damon) is hit with debris, presumed dead and left behind. But Mark is not dead. He wakes the next sol (each day is known as a sol on Mars; see below) abandoned, unable to communicate with NASA and low on oxygen, food and other supplies. He also knows it will be four years before the next mission to Mars reaches him. To his credit, Mark doesnt panic. He uses his background as a botanist to grow food on a planet where nothing naturally grows, and he creates his own water. His intelligence is full of ingenuity and inspiration, and its a joy to watch. Meanwhile, back home at NASA, communications officer Mindy (Mackenzie Davis) discovers Mark is still alive. NASA suits Mitch (Sean Bean), Vincent (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Annie (Kristen Wiig) and Teddy (Jeff Daniels) try to figure out how to get Mark home safely as the whole world watches. Like Sandra Bullock in Gravity, Mr. Damon is alone on screen for most of The Martian, meaning if the audience doesnt invest in his struggle, the entire film falls apart. This is a rare and gutsy risk for an actor, and Mr. Damon is superb. Mark documenting his actions for the cameras inside his hab also informs the audience of his thoughts and feelings, all of which demonstrate how engaging, smart, frustrated and funny he is (youll be surprised by how much the film makes you laugh). The rest of the considerable ensemble is solid as well, but make no mistake: This movie would not work if Mr. Damon were not at the top of his game. Whats nice about the script, which was written by Drew Goddard and is based on the best-selling 2011 novel of the same name by Andrew Weir, is that it doesnt feel the need to create adversity for the sake of adversity. Things are hard enough for Mark while he is alone and figuring out how to survive, and were fascinated by his ability to survive. Adding more for him to deal with, such as actual martians/aliens, wouldve felt forced and made it a different movie. Kudos to the filmmakers for not feeling obligated to present non-stop action throughout, for it is because were engaged intellectually as well as viscerally that the narrative truly shines. With Gravity, Interstellar and now The Martian, weve had three top-notch movies about outer space exploration released in the last three years. All of them have been visually spectacular. Perhaps more importantly, each showcases the ability of women to not only exist but also thrive in what is traditionally a mans world (Ms. Chastains character plays a prominent role here). Lets hope this trend continues. The struggles of Prometheus (2012) aside, there is no director wed rather have working in science fiction than Mr. Scott. The man who gave us Alien (1979) and Blade Runner (1982) knows the genre well, and when in top form hes capable of creating true classics. Whether The Martian joins the echelon of classic status remains to be seen, but it is an exceptional piece of filmmaking. f i f e i f dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> One day on Mars, known as a sol, lasts 24 hours and 39 minutes.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESCollectible tulipiere vases made for growing, showing prized blooms BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELTulip mania, a strange financial bubble in Holland in the 1630s, made a tulip bulb cost up to 10 times the yearly income of a skilled craftsman, according to some writers. So the flowers became a status symbol, and the very rich or royal bought huge containers to grow or show the beauties. Tulip mania ended in 1637, but the flowers remained popular. A vase that is still called a tulipiere has numerous holes or short tubes that hold a flowers or plants. Most sources today think these vases were used for cut flowers, but they originally were used to force tulip, hyacinth or crocus bulbs to grow and bloom in the house. Collectors can find rare early Dutch tulip vases, 19thcentury Wedgwood or Staffordshire vases and Continental and American examples. Now is the time to buy the bulbs that can be forced to bloom in a tulipiere during the spring. Q: I need help pricing my table to sell. I bought it from a resale shop 60 years ago. The dark wood top is oval and rests on two heavy turned tripods. It has a frieze drawer with a metal tag in it that reads J.B. Van Sciver Co., Camden, N.J. Can you help? A: Joseph Bishop Van Sciver (18611943) was 21 years old when he started a small furniture business on in Camden, N.J., in 1881. The company quickly expanded, and pieces made at Mr. Van Scivers plant were delivered by wagon throughout southern New Jersey and Pennsylv ania. By 1900, the company was selling inexpensive, well-made living room, bedroom and dining sets, and more costly reproductions, lamps, clocks, rugs and draperies. J.B. Van Sciver Furniture Co. went out of business in the mid-1980s. Your table is worth about $250. Q: I would like to sell a cocktail shaker that was a gift from my uncle many years ago, maybe in the 1960s. Its amber glass, paneled and with a sterling silver rooster and silver bands around the top and the rim of the foot. The shaker top is, I believe, silver over copper and the piece is in good condition. With the top, its 11 inches high. A: Your cocktail shaker was made by Westmoreland Glass Co. The company started in 1889, when a group from the Specialty Glass Co. of East Liverpool, Ohio, relocated to Grapeville, Pa. The companys name changed to Westmoreland Specialty Co. and then to Westmoreland Glass Co. in 1921. Your glass shaker is part of the 1707 line that was made into the 1930s. The pattern is informally called Huxford by some collectors, but Westmoreland never used a name when referring the pattern; it always used the line number. The 1926 catalog doesnt specify what metal was used for the top, but it usually was aluminum or chromed or silver-plated metal. Isnt it odd that a glassmaker would produce a container for illegal substances in the middle of Prohibition? Value of your shaker: $75 to $100. Tip: If a screw that holds hardware on an old piece of furniture is loose, remove it and insert a wooden matchstick in the hole, then put the screw back in the hole and tighten the screw.

Shrouded in mystery, the show band consists of Eddie Mummy, Java, K.W. Tut, Mummy Cass, Spaz, The Pole, Midnight, Mummy Rah and The Flu, all roused from a sort of semi-vegetative torpor to perform funk/R&B originals chiefly extolling the virtues (and vices) of the opposite sex, all in search of the ultimate riff that will let them finally rest in peace. (Some say the Mummies were cursed after deflowering a great pharaohs daughter. Others claim they are reincarnated Grammy-winning studio musicians.) The Mummies released their sixth studio album, Cryptic, in 2013. The next year brought the release of four five-song EPs; the airing of Rejuvannihilation, the bands latest full-length concert film, on Front and Center on American Public Television; and the Mummies Pants airing on NBCs Sunday Night Football. February 2015 brought the launch of the Viral Tour, which brings the band to Seminole Immokalee Casino.

Thanks for writing, and good luck. The Legend of AllapattahBy Susana Gonzalez Odizzio, Lehigh AcresThe proud, young Osceola stalked quietly through the tall grasses of the Great Swamp of the South. The wind blew through his long black hair, his deep, penetrating eyes transfixed on the fastapproaching storm. He was familiar with every corner of his mangrove forest; its tangled roots, the muddy river of life that flowed into the sea, even the song of the birds and their delicate flights. He recognized the multi-colored tones of life and death, and loved the ephemeral feeling of being alive and its infinite beauty. He was one with his people and the land. However, despite his vast knowledge, he could have never known that he would be the most loved and most hated Seminole warrior of all time. Serenely, he often tilted his head to one side and listened in silence to the leaders of his tribe, the Alligator clan, to which his mother belonged; the very clan he aspired to one day lead. His uncles taught him the art of the hunt, and he dedicated most of the day to facing the perils of the same swamp that saw him come into this world, but his mother often spoke of another land. The land of his ancestors, to the north, a land from which they were violently cast out. Osceola had many brothers who sprang about from here to there, like small curious birds all around him, showering him with smiles and questions, and only his sister, Yani, brought him a measure of solace. Yani had just been given her coveted bead necklace. The vibrant beads symbolized the end of childhood, and the beginning of life as an adult. They had always been close, they protected each other, and she had even saved him once from a strange creature, a mysterious alligator that prowled the banks of the river when he was a mere 6 years old, and with it, sealed his eternal loyalty and gratitude to her. The memory always reminded him of the legend of Allapattah, which had always captivated him as a child. The elders had taught him that in their tongue, Allapattah meant alligator, and was the very namesake of their clan. The legend spoke of a time not far back, a time when their forefathers came to these new lands seeking a home. With the great chief of all clans leading the way, they ventured into the swamp. With the powerful voice of a strong leader, he swore to defend all his people and their new lands as he raised his arms towards the sky with new found hope. As countless eyes from within the swamp lay witness to this grand oath, a mighty beast, an alligator, rose from the dark mire. The animal bore eyes of fire; determination and power raging within their depths. The Allapattah spoke with the chief, inaudible to the rest of the tribe. I am Allapattah, guardian of the swamp. I am lord of all things you cast your eyes upon, and also that which you do not. I welcome you and your people. We will have peace, but of your people I will ask for an offering for my hospitality, this will prove that you respect my designs and will keep your word. The children of the tribe listened to this tale with admiration and satisfaction, but Osceola felt uneasy, some nights he dreamt that the great alligator crept
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C21 closer and closer, whispering words he could not fully comprehend. When the sun would rise, Osceola would run into swamp, looking for the answers he never received. The years passed, and the young Osceola won his position as leader; he became the true embodiment of a great chief, the chief of the alligator clan. His sheer will, strength and wisdom won him the unconditional respect and loyalty of all the clans. One day, the emissaries from the northern clans came to the great Osceola, with a proposition that enraged him; sell his southern lands to the white men, just as their chiefs had done in the winter past. Sell the lands of the great Allapattah to our foe? he asked them, rage resonating in his voice. His eyes shone with pride and anger as he unsheathed his alligator skin hilted blade, a memento of his father, and without waiting for a response, he ended the lives of those emissaries, now branded as traitors. Osceolas fame extended throughout all the lands north of the Okeechobee. Through the swamps and forests, his mighty voice, both feared and adored, could be heard saying: Death to the Seminole who collaborates with the enemy. The war for the Allapattah lands began, and their adversaries came in the thousands, armed with deadly guns. The Seminole warriors painted their faces with the colors of mud. Ochers and reds streaked their cheeks, in honor of their beloved swamp. Like fierce panthers they prepared their hearts to defend their families, their customs, and their legends. They threw themselves into a powerful march, advancing, retreating and hiding so they could strike back ferociously in a war that seemed to have no end. The clans, organized by Osceola, fought together until the enemy was forced to retreat. With arms held into the sky, the Seminoles celebrated life. Glee disappeared from the face of the bloodied Osceola when he found next to a trail, the lifeless corpse of his beloved sister, Yani. He took her into his arms and carried her to the swamp, commending her spirit to the great Allapattah, and in that precise moment, Osceola could hear him loud and clear. You have always been the offering that I have asked of your people, said Allapattah. Osceola suddenly recalled the alligator who had come close to dragging him away into the murky swamp water before his sister, risking her life, had intervened. She had distracted the beast with a few fish she carried in her basket while they both escaped. The voice brought him back from his memories. Ambitious enemies have come to my lands, it continued in an uproar. Osceola listened with great attention to the words of the great Allapattah. The swamp raged with his voice; the fish, the mangroves. All was in a frenzy, but was disturbingly silent. Water rapidly surged through the swamp, fish jumped out of the mire as if possessed as the trees violently blew around, but all in silence. Only the great voice could be heard, deep and resonant. You will stop our enemies and we will be one, said the voice as it faded away and echoed throughout the swamp, everything once again stabilizing. Osceola kept these words close to his heart, knowing that his days were numbered. The war raged on, and the unforgiving Seminoles continued to fight. The enemy forces dwindled, as did their brave warriors. His people were forced to retreat all the way to the heart of the swamp, when a proposition for truce arrived. Osceola held the white flag as he marched to meet with his enemies, his steps sure, his honor held high, to find peace and harmony for his people. The general who met him on that day, however, cared little for the noble intentions of the great chief Osceola. He realized the generals intention of betrayal too late as he took out his rifle and shot Osceola straight in the heart. He fell back as his world around him grew dark. Everything he ever loved, accomplished; all his dreams, failures and his hopes were quickly vanishing. The brave, young chief took his last breath as the same swamp that saw him enter this world now helped him depart from it. The Seminoles, upon realizing what had happened to their chief, entrenched themselves in their swamp, never surrendering, never signing any treaties with the enemy. His people knew that the great Allapattah had taken the great chief Osceola as he had promised all those years ago. They were now one. Even today the legend is told, the children of the Seminole hear it from their elders. They do not fear the swamps or its dangers, because they know the spirit of the great Osceola, from deep within the forest, the swamp and the rivers, watches with his eyes of fire.

We Deliver And Pick Up CELEBRITY EXTRAWahlberg still cruising as a New Kid BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I am a realityTV junkie and got totally hooked on Rock This Boat: New Kids on the Block. Will they be filming another season? Jennie T., via FacebookA: The Pop original series, which premiered earlier this year, will return for a second season. All five members of NKOTB Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, Jordan Knight and Jonathan Knight will once again jump on board their wildly popular, sold-out fan cruise, which sets sail this month from Miami to Grand Turk, Bahamas. The first season of the series (of which Mr. Wahlberg is the executive producer) told the personal stories and long-awaited journeys of NKOTBs most devoted fans with limited backstage footage. However, in the second season, the eightepisode series will turn its focus directly on the band, giving fans unprecedented access to the entire NKOTB experience. Q: What happened to the TV show Mr. Robinson? It was very funny, but just disappeared. I really liked it. Mary B., via emailA: The NBC sitcom, which starred Craig Robinson (The Office) as a middle-school teacher and part-time musician, was canceled in September after airing its six episodes. It was generally derided by both critics and audiences, and never quite got the liftoff it hoped for. The show also featured Peri Gilpin (Frasier), Spencer Grammer (who is Kelsey Grammers real-life daughter), Ben Koldyke, Brandon T. Jackson and Amandla Stenberg. Q: Have you heard anything about the movie Dark Places, which was scheduled to be released in June? I read the book by Gillian Flynn, which was terrific, and I saw that it was going to be made into a major motion picture with Charlize Theron and Corey Stoll. Do you know when will it be released? Kathleen O., via emailA: I, too, loved the Gillian Flynn book and, like you, was excited to see the film. It was released in August in select theaters, and via DirecTV and video on demand. It never quite got wide release and just kind of faded into the background. Along with that, critics and audiences alike werent too kind to it, although I wouldnt mind seeing it to judge for myself. If you want to watch it now, you can stream it on Amazon and other instant-video outlets, or you can wait until Oct. 6 to buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

There arent many places around here where you can dine right on the beach, and this is the perfect time of year to do it, before the seasonal crowds make it near impossible to get a table in any kind of timely fashion. A generous mound of crabmeat and finely chopped gulf shrimp, held together with just enough mayo, sits in a pool of smoked tomato vinaigrette and is topped with diced roasted red peppers and julienned jicama, a bit of basil oil and a sprinkling of cilantro. A few whole grain crackers, a slice of lemon and a wedge of pineapple make for a lovely lunch. Too bad I had to go back to the office, as a stroll on the beach would have made the perfect ending for this outing. One More Thing: My dining companion ordered the Salt & Pepper Fish n Chips and raved about it. Served with a chunky gherkin remoulade, cole slaw and fries, it was $14. There will be a next time for me at The Turtle Club and soon. Cindy Pierce firstname.lastname@example.org

VINORed table wines include some noteworthy and complex vintagesRed Table Wine. Only $150 a Bottle. Seems a little steep, doesnt it, to pay more than $100 for a bottle of something that says table wine or just red wine on the label. It isnt one of those rare blockbuster California cabernets, or a precious vintage from the sacred vineyards of Burgundy. Its just red table wine. But wait. Take a closer look at where its from and whats inside the bottle, because that humble title can conceal a drinking experience thats well worth the price. Most likely, the label youre looking at comes from Italy or some other ancient winemaking area thats steeped in long tradition and strict custom. So if youre confused about whats in the bottle, you can thank the Italian government. Over the years, it passed a whole spate of laws defining specific wine zones in the country, decreeing what kind of recipe each wine should conform to, how long it should be aged, etc. Unfortunately, the Italians forgot one thing: the most innovative winemakers may not want to follow the ancient recipes. Say youre sitting out there in your vineyard in the middle of Chianti, a few miles from Castellina or some other ancient winemaking center, and you just dont want to make your wine the way the official recipe demands. Maybe youre feeling puckish and you throw in a little of that cabernet youve been growing, or a couple of merlot grapes. Youve got a problem. Follow the traditional recipe, and you can call your wine Chianti. Dont, and you cant. Theres no official name for wines that dont conform, so what do you call it? Probably, youd call it a Super Tuscan, which is exactly what the major producers, over the past decade or so, have done. In the most popular and expensive Super Tuscans, sangiovese is still the major component, and the wine serves as a sensational accent to all kinds of traditional Italian cuisines. The rest (there are maybe about 20) are made from merlot, cabernet sauvignon, syrah and other international varietals. As I said, wines from Chianti that do not follow the rules dont have an official terminology. Whats worse, they get classified in the lowest designation of quality, which is called IGT, down there with the $8 bottles. The lack of an official name for nonconforming wine has driven producers to make up clever names of their own, all of which contain lots of vowels. Theres Ornellaia, which is made primarily from cabernet sauvignon. And Tignanello, which is mostly sangiovese. Then theres the wine that is said to have started the whole Super Tuscan revolution, Sassicaia, made from cabernet sauvignon and aged and barreled differently from any other Chianti regional wine up to its time. While Super Tuscans like Solaia, Summus or Fontalloro may cost well over $100 apiece, some are priced a little more mercifully. My bargain favorite, Monte Antico, is made mostly from sangiovese, but not entirely, and costs under $15 a bottle. While it cant compare to the juice that Marchese Antinori is putting in his Tignanello bottles, its a nice step away from your typical Chianti, and its absolutely sensational with pizza. Its easy to become a dedicated Italian wine lover. Just pick up a decent Tuscan blend like Monte Antico (great value at around $10), Terrabianca Campaccio ($25) or Balzini ($20), which has white label, red label, and black label versions, each indicating a different blend. For pasta and pizza, its the way to go.Ask the Wine WhispererIn the bottom of a bottle of white wine, I saw some clear crystals. What are they? Has the wine gone bad? Ron H., Fort LauderdaleWines contain many types of acid. The crystals youre seeing are actually bits of solidified tartaric acid, or plain old cream of tartar, which is tasteless and harmless. Sometimes you also find them at the inside end of a cork. The wine is fine to drink, but dont eat the crystals. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group. His new book, Secrets of the Wine Whisperer, is available through his website or on Amazon.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 1-7, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 700 Fifth Avenue South, Naples, Florida 34102 239.659.7008 Visit www.VerginaRestaurant.com For Our Menu ENJOY 20% OFF REGULARLY PRICED ITEMSWITH THIS AD; OFFER EXPIRES OCTOBER 20TH AFTER REFURBISHMENT, VERGINA IS OPEN 7 DAYS PER WEEK CUISINE Bonita bistro finds Lil corner of the Italian sceneLil Italys name could be taken literally, for it is certainly a tiny space with a cozy atmosphere that feels like someones home. The warm tan walls are covered with framed photos of patrons feasting on pizza and pasta. A shelf of recorked spent wine bottles conjures visions of a vast family-and-friends feast that might have happened the night before. White twinkle lights mimic stars overhead. Of course, theres a downside to a diminutive dining room. Tables are tightly positioned to maximize seating, which can create some awkward maneuvering, and you could wind up smack in front of the entrance or the restroom or suffering the whims of weather at one of the outdoor tables. We were fortunate to arrive early enough to secure one of the last open tables indoors surprising for a midweek September evening in seasonal Bonita Springs. They must be doing something right to be this busy, we thought optimistically (and online reviews did show a lot of l ove, especially for Lil Italys pizza). The family-run restaurants big claim to fame is a 28-inch pie, but there are three other sizes available, down to a 10-inch personal pizza. The rest of the menu consists of the usual ItalianAmerican favorites: parmigianas and picattas, marinaras and marsalas, along with hot sandwiches and soups. Glutenfree dishes are offered as well. Sipping a cold Peroni ($4) and a glass of pinot noir ($6) only house wines are served by the glass we decided to start with an order of calamari ($10) and a personal-sized pizza, the Lil Italy Suprema ($10), which is topped with pepperoni, bacon, sausage, green peppers, onions and black olives. The calamari had a light, golden crust that wasnt greasy in the least and was flecked of thyme leaves for a pleasingly minty flavor and aroma that contrasted with the sweetness of the marinara provided for dipping. The small rings and tentacles encased in the crisp batter were cooked through but not overdone. The perfect size to share for an appetizer, the pizza managed to carry a generous balance of meats, vegetables and cheese without seeming overloaded and without keeping the center from cooking through. The crust had a good snap on first bite, yielding to a slightly chewy interior typical of New York-style pizza. All in all, a commendable pizza. By this time, wed noticed there was only one server covering the whole restaurant, including a large party. She didnt appear fazed by the burden, but certain signs of neglect became apparent in the service and the kitchens output: incomplete table setups and no offering of additional beverages; nearby, another diner complained of an undercooked entre (eavesdropping is hard to avoid when tables are so close). Then there was the Chicago-style Italian beef sandwich ($12). A scant spread of giardiniera added a hint of vinegary tang to the roll but couldnt obscure the fact that the thinly sliced beef was too dry. Chicago beef sandwiches typically drip with meat juices, if theyre not actually dunked in jus. This one did not live up to expectations, perhaps due to the kitchen being too busy to notice. Such lapses of attention seem to belie Lil Italys general approach to its food. Hoagie rolls are baked fresh daily for the hot sandwiches, and good, spongy homemade focaccia is served with entrees. And then theres the generous proportions of dishes like the Lil Italy pork chops ($18.49), providing enough food for two full meals. A pair of broad chops was breaded and baked to a golden brown and placed atop of large mound of angel hair pasta laced with tomato sauce. The juicy bone-in chops were garnished with the restaurants delicious bruschetta mix of melty mozzarella and provolone, tomatoes and fresh basil. It was a tasty and unexpected pairing. Tiramisu ($5) is a good option for dessert, its layers of ladyfingers, espresso, mascarpone and whipped cream defined in distinct stripes.

Theres no shortage of mom-and-pop Italian options around, and the competition doesnt leave much room for inconsistency. But Lil Italy Bistro has it charms and clearly has found a lil slice of the market. DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYFried calamari is seasoned with lots of thyme.The 10-inch version of the Lil Italy Suprema pizza makes a good appetizer.
