www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 22-28, 2015 COMMENTARYBlind as a batIve heard that expression all my life blind as a bat. Just like my mother, whos been blind as a bat for half of her 88 years. So when blue-dappled day slipped its lead rope recently and escaped the colorcorral of evening, galloping back through the sunset sky across distant islands of cantaloupe and coral, carrot and apricot and pink pearl before disappearing above my horse pasture through the last gossamer strands of plum and violet, I noticed them: the bats. Blind as always and utte rly heedless of the ashen, incoming night, they were feasting. One moment, dragonflies and mosquitos swarmed in the near-earth humidity wrapped around us. But the next moment their numbers grew thin, along with the caustic whine of their wings. The bats had come flashing suddenly past us like a squadron of fighters, pulling maneuvers you wouldnt believe if you hadnt seen them: pitchbacks and wingovers, high and low yo-yos, lag rolls, split Ss and scissors, along with breaking and darting turns, physics-defying dips and sudden climbs for which names have not been devised. The answer to the question I am about to ask is not just radar. This is the question: How can a creature that sees almost nothing fill its niche in the world with such magnificent skill and ability, in this case by picking off tiny, quick-moving insects on the wing and in the dark, while avoiding the scrub and trees? A bat, after all, has never seen a sunset like the one I just described. Science offers an explanation called echolocation. It works like this: bats (with roughly 750 species on the planet) throw out mostly ultrasonic sounds unique to a given landscape. Then they use the resulting echoes as those emissions bounce off objects to distinguish their qualities, and finally to determine direction, size, shape and range to a target insect or plant. But I want to acknowledge something more profound than the startling ecomechanics of such blind skill. Instead, let me point to the robust wonder of adaptive ability itself of a capacity to make the most of an environment no matter what the mechanics, as bats do. Ive learned (sketchily) about the little flying mammals from print and observation. But I learned about the miracle of adaptability the inexplicable wonder of its service as a visionary force of nature from my mother. When she was young, my mother could ride cow ponies, play the piano and outwork most boys on a cattle ranch with no running water or electricity. She graduated from the University of Colorado by using a magnifying glass to read. She worked for several years, and later she read or more often recited stories to her three children every night before bed. The summer she lost the last of her limited sight was rough, although we never heard that from her; she hated losing it. Who wouldnt? We hated it, too. But she adapted and changed, and in doing so became more fully herself. Thats what you see when you look at functioning blind people, I learned you see a paradox. You see an advanced species of human more fully realized with a disability than many humans without one. For me, watching my mother see her way forward without sight has amounted to a long lesson in agriculture a lesson in seeding, growing and harvesting: the harvest one may reap from patience, humility and steely determination. The harvest of a quiet confidence and an unsentimental fatalism about circumstances and luck. And now my mother, blind for almost 45 years, has lived alone in Colorado for 16 years, since losing my father. Unlike many others, she doesnt read braille, use a white cane or keep a guide dog. But she embraces a devoted family and nearby friends. Shes memorized hundreds of telephone numbers. She has a mental map of her closet and clothes. She knows where every object in her refrigerator or cupboard stands, and she has ways of moving methodically across rooms with a vacuum, or maneuvering outside to sweep porches or manhandle garbage cans on trash collection days that are always practical and often inventive. I order groceries on a computer in Florida delivered to her door from a local market in Colorado but if I didnt, shed figure out another way to get them. In my experience, she spins the whole cloth of a rich life from her deep caring about others, and from her willingness to accept help when she requires it (thats not easy for an independent soul). Yes, shes blind as a bat. But also like a bat, shes better at doing what she does living well, trying hard and never giving up than anybody else I know. She asks (she quietly insists) only one thing of others: to be fully included and similarly treated to the extent possible. Those who do that and who may have to slow down a bit just to keep up with her often discover a remarkable truth: Shes likely to give them more than they can ever give her. t i a q t t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Ellen Nash Williams BringYourHighestExpectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 22-28, 2015 Food bank CEO bids farewell to a caring community BY AL BRISLAINHarry Chapin Food Bank CEOThe Harry Chapin Food Bank has been serving Southwest Florida communities for more than 30 years. I have been privileged to be the CEO for the past 8 years. I am leaving to accept a similar position in California. Last year, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed more than $30 million worth of food to Southwest Florida families in need. Thats the equivalent of more than 15 million meals. When people ask me about the food bank, those are the numbers that usually stick in their memories. However, its the tremendous community support, the hard work of our staff and volunteers, and the gratitude of the children, the seniors, and the working families we serve that will stick with me long after I leave Southwest Florida. When my wife and I moved here in March of 2007, just before the housing crisis and the subsequent recession, the Harry Chapin Food Bank was serving 12,000 of our neighbors in need each month through our network of partner agencies. Within a year or two, the unemployment rate quadrupled in many of the communities we serve, and we began serving in excess of 30,000 people a month. It was truly a tsunami of need, and most of the families we were serving had never had to ask for help before. Given the instability of the economy, the uncertain future of the stock market, and the fact that many were worried about the future of their own careers, it was a tribute to our community how many of you stepped up, gave of your time, and opened your pocketbooks to help feed families in need. From 2007 to 2014, the Harry Chapin Food Bank was able to quadruple our food distribution, assuring that many children and their families did not go to bed hungry. We grew because the community cared; because so many of you could not bear to see your neighbors go without. Today, the need has abated somewhat, but not nearly as much as one might think. There are many who are back to work, but the jobs they have now pay less than they earned prior to the recession. Even those who are lucky enough to have a better-paying job are digging out from under the sea of debt they incurred when they were unemployed for many months, if not years. For those who think hunger is no longer a problem in Southwest Florida, keep in mind that the number of people in poverty in 2006 was less than 90,000. Today, according to the latest census figures, there are more than 160,000 of our neighbors living in poverty. Fortunately, I am leaving behind an organization led by a dedicated board of directors and a very strong leadership team. We recently revised our strategic plan, placing even more emphasis on distributing healthy food, on identifying creative ways to improve our collaborative efforts, and on reaching out to underserved areas. I was working at a mobile pantry this year, and met a 63-year-old woman who was pushing her 89-year-old mother in a wheelchair. The womans granddaughter was clinging to her skirt as they moved through the line. I dont know why the little girls mother and father were out of the picture, but I do know the woman was performing a heroic deed for her family. She told me she worked full-time, but it was difficult to feed her granddaughter, her mother, and herself on her meager income. She thanked us profusely for the food. We hear hundreds of similar stories, stories of families facing hard times and having to swallow their pride so they can feed their families. Because of many caring Southwest Floridians, fresh and healthy food was available for that womans family, and for the hundreds of other families we fed that day. Those families received food because of you, the donor; you, the volunteer; you, the grocer; you the farmer; and you, the neighbor who cared. It has been an honor to work with each of you. Please continue to support this important cause. Let my people goIt was a rain of biblical proportions, a once-in-a-thousand-years rainfall producing massive flooding without precedence, inundating South Carolina from the coast to its midlands. The consequence of heavy rains over several days was cataclysmic. All told, the scale of the disaster touched millions of lives and properties, the breadth of the destruction similar to what Superstorm Sandy wrought in 2013 along the nations northern coastlines. This time, South Carolina won the bad luck of the draw. No one experiencing or witnessing such an event envies the long road to recovery required of the states leadership. Yet there is a certain irony associated with South Carolinas plight. It now finds itself in a place it absolutely loathes to be and judges equally unacceptable in the condition of others: It is asking for help from the federal government. Mind you, South Carolina practically invented states rights. Its politicians rabid disdain for Uncle Sam is legendary, a beacon to every hard-right conservative who would dismantle brick by brick the federal government, including the rights and privileges of federal citizenship. The only difference distinguishing these modern conservatives from the habits of the states past is they are right wing Republicans instead of right wing Democrats. Now, lo and behold, a thousand-year flood has produced, at least temporarily, a change of attitude. Republican Governor Nikki Haley is seeking billions in federal assistance to recover from the flooding disaster. The states Republican congressional delegation is all for it, too. The states solicitation of federal aid is only inconsistent if you happen to remember the Republican hardliners make a career of trying to strangle in the cradle all the socalled entitlements they despise, including Social Security and Medicare. These are the same politicians, who three years ago, voted overwhelmingly in the U.S. House of Representatives to deny $51 billion in federal aid to support the recovery efforts of their northern neighbors from the devastation of Sandy. Only 49 House Republicans out of 232 voted to approve the disaster funds; and South Carolinas U.S. Senators opposed the deal, too. Now hold that thought. Fast forward to the recent resignation of Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, and the abdication of the majority leader who was poised to become the next Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. Both were forced out by Tea Partiers and some 40 right wing extremists who claim membership in a House congressional caucus called the Freedom Caucus. This gang of hardliners includes representatives from Florida, including Republican Rep. Daniel Webster. He seeks to become the next Speaker, committed to shifting as far right as the absolutism of the Freedom Caucus requires, as in over the cliff. The caucus leaves no room for dissent or deviation on policy or leadership issues, and accepts no pretense of compromise if 80 percent of its members agree on anything. It was a stunning take-down by the caucus of the majority partys House leadership, forcing, through its out-sized power, the entire Republican majority to heel and in the process making the U.S. House of Representatives its hostage, stripping the chamber of its capacity to govern. The Houses conservative majority has been so far unwilling to challenge the caucus dictatorship. They could do so by tossing overboard the self-imposed Hastert Rule requiring conservatives to entertain legislation in lock-step fashion. The rule says, The Speaker will not schedule a floor vote on any bill that does not have majority support within his or her party even if the majority of the members of the House would vote to pass it. As long as the majoritys leadership shackles itself to its partys obstructionists, unwilling to find compromise with House Democrats, the Freedom Caucus has the conservative majority by the short hairs. Three years ago, Congress did ultimately approve federal legislation to provide disaster relief to help communities recover from Sandy, the House voting its approval despite the opposition of the Freedom Caucus, and the Houses Republican majority. As if pharaohs, the House conservatives hardened their hearts and looked past the suffering of their fellow Americans. They invited by their mindless refusal a plague of serial failures to govern on critical policy issues, bringing a pox on the nations House. Nevertheless, the day of reckoning came, the peoples will be done. Moses, the deliverer, was none other than Speaker of the House John Boehner. Speaker Boehner defied the pharaohs. Kevin McCarthy, his loyal second, helped move the legislations approval in the House despite the opposition of its radical right. Speaker Boehner introduced the legislation on the House floor, called for a vote and the bill passed with the support of the Democratic minority. In so doing, Speaker Boehner overcame the enforced bondage of House members under the Hastert rule, set free the capacity of Congressional representatives to compromise, and by his leadership, took his colleagues to the Promised Land, returning to the people the Houses ability to govern. Thus, it was the people were set free. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. Her professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 22-28, 2015 ROOTED IN NAPLESFalls first break in the weather leads to a family adventureWe HATE horrible, wholesome sunshine! Our family refrain became surprisingly irrelevant this past week when, miracle of miracles, the weather finally broke and hiding indoors or stewing a 90-degree pool became unnecessary. Children, unfortunately, dont always have the option to hide from a Florida summer; I have visions of my terrible two being herded with bullwhips onto playgrounds in the blistering heat of August. By the end of summer, they became very resistant to any outdoor activity that wasnt enforced, so when their father and I had the bright idea to introduce them to kayaking last week, we encountered some resistance and an understandable fear of alligators. Floridas sparkling splendor reemerged and we were going to enjoy it, dammit, shoving aside their apprehension about mosquitoes and spooky birdcalls to embark on a morning of rowing down the Estero River. Our excursion started at 7:30 a.m. when we reminded them that our usually sloppy Saturday morning would be cut short: Our family was putting on sunscreen and bug spray and renting two kayaks at Estero River Outfitters for a single, solitary adventure. Somehow, the enthusiasm caught and we were shortly examining bait shrimp while their dad reserved our vessels in the outfitters cabin on U.S. 41. After giving the kids a quick lesson in port-a-john management, we were loaded into our kayaks and left to our own devices. It was only at this point I remembered Ive only been around people who kayak Ive never done it myself. Little Julia and I made a few detours into some overhanging branches, prompting anxious squeals from the bow, but after about 10 minutes we were lazily steering down the narrow channel into what would surely put Marlow in mind of the Congo River, with gnarled branches and twining vines barely a foot above our heads and the black, torpid water streaming inches below us with each stroke. After some deft maneuvering through a particularly dense patch of vegetation, the banks opened up into a wide grotto that was sheltered from sunlight by the sturdy branches of tropical trees. Shafts of sunlight strategically pierced the shadowy retreat and skittered diamonds across the rivers surface in linear streams. A stand of bamboo here, a large tuft of arching long grass there. Our childrens apprehension melted away under the peaceful, silent spell of a Florida morning in fall. Isnt this better than staying home and watching Spongebob? I asked. Id much rather be here than at stinky old home. That was it. Spell broken. Never give the impression to opinionated children that youve engaged thought control techniques. I really should work on subtlety. I want to go home! said the boy. Nope, not happening. We turned around and headed toward Koreshan State Park, where the river is wider and we could pick out the spots we had hiked the week before. We passed under the U.S. 41 bridge shouting Echo! and admired how well we sang with the aid of water and cement acoustics. Do manatees live here? asked our girl. Theyre my friends and I want to meet them. We did not run into any manatees, but we did see the haunted castles at Koreshan, some beautifully carved bridges and what I think was an old cistern. We briefly caught the creeps at some cement ruins, perfect for our Halloween preparations, and argued a bit about whether alligators like kayakers. Wed been on the water for about an hour at this point and, admittedly, it was getting hot, especially for the two who were wearing life jackets. We turned around and rowed quietly back to the outfitters. Oh, thank goodness! exclaimed the boy, even though he had been as fascinated as the rest of us for most of the trip. It was that horrible, wholesome sunshine and the sweat under his neoprene restraints that tipped him over the edge, I guess. Having grown up in Naples, its easy for Lindsey Nesmith to forget how cool living in Florida can be.

Dont worry about saying, See you later or did you see the ball game, or something like that, advises Mr. Hart, who started losing his vision to a disease called retinitis pigmentosa before he was 10. He moved through high school, college and into the working world as his sight diminished. He married, had children, suffered a divorce. And now hes 47, a new arrival to the region who came from a job as a college counselor in Illinois to live near his parents in Naples, and to serve as a caseworker at Lighthouse of Collier County. With sister branches around the state, Lighthouse is a nonprofit organization devoted to helping the sight-impaired or blind become independent, productive citizens, including doctors, lawyers, teachers, nurses, counselors, tech experts and so on. Little of Mr. Harts sight remains muted colors and dimming light, vague shapes still perceptible only if the light isnt too bright. How do you talk to a person destined not to see others? How do you treat a person who cant witness the dappled majesty of the spinning blue-green planet many of us may take for granted? Just be natural. Be yourself, Mr. Hart suggests pleasantly. You dont have to talk around the sightless, either, they point out, something Robin Garcia has learned from long and challenging experience. People will sometimes stand next to a blind person and talk to somebody else. Does she want a drink? says Mrs. Garcia, executive director of Colliers Lighthouse and a former software company executive and financial planner. Her son, Andrew Willson, was diagnosed with the same disease as Mr. Hart when he was 12. Now hes 27, a college graduate employed as an administrator in the Bursars office at FGCU. And now his mother has taken up his cause by joining Lighthouse. Let them know when someone is there, or not there, she adds. Let them know youre coming. Hi, its Robin. So they know. Speak to the person. Look at the person. Face them, address them personally. If youre going to leave, dont just walk away. Oftentimes, ask them if they want help. The ladys room is straight ahead, would you like me to help you? Lighthouse numbers among several other organizations up and down the coast that work directly or indirectly with the state Division of Blind Services, relying on limited federal and state funds and the generosity of donors to help the sightless become competent, comfortable citizens. Their services, free to the blind, are many. Ms. Dondero, for example, now 27, is the Lighthouse technology instructor for the visually impaired a determined and even adventurous young woman. Not only did she learn everything Lighthouse of Southwest Florida in Lee County could teach her, but she attended an intense residency program hosted by the Rehabilitation Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Daytona, part of Floridas Division of Blind Services. Each working day for her, Ms. Dondero embarks from her home in North Fort Myers, rides a Lee Tran service called Passport to the Collier County line, then gets off that bus to catch another: a Para Transit bus dispatched to serve Collier Countys disabled. Sometimes those busses are not on time, so waiting becomes part of her life. Once aboard the Para Transit, she rides to her job at Lighthouse just off Airport Pulling Road North, or on some days to Immokalee. Finally she gets to work, helping others learn how to use computers and iPhones with adaptive technologies that dont require the use of a mouse, or for that matter of sight. She does it all with a cane and now a voiced GPS (a recent addition that can be a little temperamental, she says) but no dog. No dog because its such a huge responsibility all the time, and I didnt want to be tied down, she explains. A dog, like a good marriage, might happen someday, she surmises.Teaching awarenessEach of these men and women with many others dropped their routine tasks to become educators, last Thursday. Their only intent was to cross the street or the highway, en masse, and thus offer a quick course in the rules of the road to the sighted humans sitting behind the wheels of fast-moving, multi-ton vehicles in both Collier and Lee counties. To do this, they stood curbside at one location or another, took up slender white canes, and pointed them outward like Olympic fencers. But rather than thrusting boldly forward, they paused. Listened. They may be blind, such caution suggests, but they arent foolish. Neither is Mitch Haley, a spokesperson for Lighthouse of Southwest Florida. We arranged to have the Lee Sheriffs Office supporting us on this, he admitted and not because the white cane ensemble needs the cops, but because the drivers do. Everybody on the curb knew a person could get run over stepping into traffic armed only with a white cane, no matter what the law says. But some drivers didnt, apparently even on such an auspicious day. As it turned out, Oct. 15 was National White Cane Awareness Day. That was probably news to most or all of the stress-buzzed drivers roaring down U.S. 41 and Pine Island Road in North Fort Myers, or to the maneuver-maestros jockeying for decent parking along Fifth Avenue in Naples. They were bound for jobs and beaches and shops and the lifestyle choices most people make unselfconDciously at least until they saw the white canes. Some ignored them; some slowed a bit and continued on; and some, finally, began to stop, the correct decision. Whether drivers know it or not, the law is not ambiguous about their responsibility to people with white canes. If you see a white cane like mine, no matter where I cross a road in the middle of the block or at the light, it doesnt matter you have to stop, explains Kathleen Hoover, 67, a downtown Fort Myers resident who began losing her sight about five years ago to a disease medical experts across the state and the country still have not been able to diagnose precisely. That was the same year her husband died of cancer. None of it has been much fun, she acknowledges quietly. And none of it has defeated her, either. On the contrary, Mrs. Hoover is a fighter. A career public relations and marketing expert with an affable, straightforward demeanor, now she serves as a spokeswoman for the Southwest Florida Council for the Blind. A Hoosier born and raised, shes become a fierce advocate for independence, a woman who makes only a single request of the wide world around her: Dispense with the pity. I hate it when people say, Im so sorry for you. I see this sight loss as a blessing. There are people I can relate to now I never could before. And the last thing I want to do is be taken care of. Blindness may be a blessing, just like independence, but that doesnt mean its easy. Crossing a road, for example, is one of the major challenges in Mrs. Hoovers life, training or no training, law or no law. When I want to cross, I put out my cane, and people drive right by it. So I listen until traffic (grows quiet), she explains. I often cross First Street or McGregor Boulevard in downtown Fort Myers, and its not unusual for many cars to go by before somebody stops. Sometimes they almost hit the cane. It was to combat that blindness on the part of so many drivers that both the sightless and the sighted (volunteers wearing blindfolds) lined up to cross some of the busiest roads on the coast with white canes on National White Cane Awareness Day. Police and sheriffs deputies were not the only ones helping; mobility instructors from Lighthouse of Southwest Florida and Lighthouse of Collier County were also present to help. Mobility instructors teach safety practices in moving, both at home and in different public environments, as well as the use of technologies such as a voiced GPS. But they represent only one aspect of the widely varied programs Lighthouses deliver.Something for everybodyFor any struggling to see or for their family members or friends trying to understand what that means and offer well-grounded help programs may also include the following: daily skills training to cook, identify money, groom comfortably, and use technologies; job training, including how to get to and from work, specifically; and assistive technologies, including traditional ones such as large print and braille or contemporary additions.

At Lighthouse Collier, says Ms. Garcia, those programs might include, day trips, picnics in the park, large-print cards and board games. They can learn about and play with magnifiers, CCTVs, talking computers and state-of-the-art computer equipment. They can meet and make new friends! Both in effect and literally, support from the state Division for the Blind exists from birth to death one of the only comprehensive Florida programs to offer that scope of support, says Janet Alterman, the rehabilitation supervisor at the regional Division for Blind Services.

And when those children reach college, we have a vocational rehabilitation program and an independent living program. That one can be for new learners of any age, such as Mrs. Hoover. Kathleen was part of our independent living program, which trains people how to live as independently as possible, explains Ms. Alterman. How to pour liquids, how to cook and not get burned. How to mark your appliances and use them how to know if the oven is set at 350 degrees. People learn how to wash their clothes so they dont have their colors bleed into whites. How to iron, to clean, to get to and from grocery stores or banks. How to identify their money. And we contract those services through Lighthouse of Southwest Florida.The Daytona adventureBut thats not all, she adds. Theres a special residency program at the Rehabilitation Center for the Blind in Daytona an intense, 16-week course in which students live in dormitories and strive to become even more sophisticated and skilled than local programs can make them. On Saturday morning, Kathleen Hoover was loading her bags into a friends car and heading up the Florida highway to Daytona, an adventure that made her coincidentally excited and deeply anxious, she admitted just like it had almost 50 years earlier when she left home for the first time to take up college life, first at Butler University and later at Indiana University, from which she graduated. She begins the program this week, both for herself and as an advocate for the blind, she says. Florida Weekly will monitor her progress. It is important that society understands: although we are blind, our intellectual capacity is not affected and we can contribute significantly to humanity, she noted in a letter to friends explaining why she pushes herself so hard. Its a pragmatic decision for her, too, Mrs. Hoover says she needs and wants to learn more as her vision fades permanently and completely, which in time it will. And she will be ready for that time. I went to Lighthouse for a year and learned everything I could it was more of a lower level. Cooking classes, some technology courses. But after a year I was finished. At that time I was legally blind and I had a fair amount of eyesight. But I got to a point where I couldnt use my computer anymore. Thats going to change but the change wont come easily, apparently. Its a lot more intense, says Janet Alterman, describing the Daytona program. Although its available for anybody to apply to, a lot of our clients dont want to go to Daytona because they have family members or children to take care of. But there they will also learn assisted technology how to use software such as ZoomText that can be used with any program or computer, for example. Its a magnification software for people with low vision. Or JAWS, a speech program that turns the printed word into speech. This allows totally blind people to read anything that comes across the screen. All of the training has one purpose, a purpose taxpayers should be proud of, suggests Ms. Alterman: productivity. The vocational rehab program is one of the few programs that puts people back to work, thereby taking the tax dollar and recycling it back into the budget, she explains. Eighty percent of funding for the Division of the Blind comes from the federal government, and 20 percent from the state. That mounts only to about $600,000 for the regional office in Southwest Florida not enough to pay for more than about 30 percent of the activities of Lighthouse Collier or Lighthouse of Southwest Florida, their officials say. The rest comes from philanthropists. Those may include such note worthy organization as the Naples Winter Wine Festival, the Harris Law Firm, the Palms of Fort Myers, the Fort Myers Community Womens Club or many others. But they also include countless citizens up and down the coast, those who see clearly enough to care.

PATIO FURNITURE.COM outlet store PERSPECTIVEAnother election cycle brings more fear and loathingA decade has passed since Hunter S. Thompson hedonist extraordinaire and the self-styled founder and foremost practitioner of what is known as gonzo journalism died by his own hand at the age of 67. For those unfamiliar with gonzo journalism, it is described best as a commingling of legitimate laser-focused reporting, outrageous fabrication, shameless advocacy and hallucinatory prose. William Faulkner, of all people, inadvertently distilled the genre when he observed years in advance of gonzos conception that the best fiction is far more true than any journalism. Aficionados of Mr. Thompsons work argue incessantly over what was his masterpiece. That is a debate I will avoid, but, for my money, nothing tops Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 2. This incendiary account of the 1972 presidential race differs from any political tome before or since. I doubt any book means more to a single professional sect than Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 2 means to American political journalists, Matt Taibbi, one of Mr. Thompsons lineal literary descendants, wrote in his introduction to the 40th anniversary edition of the classic. Decades after it was written, in fact, (the book) is still considered a kind of bible of political reporting. Unlike Fox News, which pushes a snarky agenda while crouching behind a laughable facade of fair and balanced, Mr. Thompson flaunted his prejudices and his opinions. He spared no one liberal, conservative, it mattered not. He strictly adhered to H.L. Menckens timeless dictum: The only way a reporter should look at a politician is down. (Heres a mild example. Mr. Thompson wrote that the excitable Hubert Humphrey campaigned like a rat in heat.) This is an exceedingly depressing political season, and we are in desperate need of a Hunter Thompson 2.0. It ofttimes seems like a sprint to the bottom between the candidates and the news media. Good lord, how did we get into such a fix? As an apostle of print news, I am biased, to be sure, but I honestly trace much of the political disintegration to the ascendancy of cable news. In 1980, when, as a newspaper reporter, I was assigned full-time to cover my first presidential campaign, network television was important, but print journalism still reigned. As a result, trenchant analysis and incisive reporting were commonplace. Howell Raines of The New York Times and Walter Isaacson of Time magazine were two of many who distinguished themselves during the 1980 contest. And on the television side you had the network legends: Walter Cronkite, Tom Brokaw, Lesley Stahl, David Brinkley intelligent, committed people all. Look around. The coverage now is dominated by a bagful of cable blowhards. Wolf Blitzer, Bill OReilly, Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton, Sean Hannity, Chris Cuomo, to name but a few. Do you want these people to be your primary sources of information? The network giants are gone. Cronkite, Brinkley, John Chancellor and Harry Reasoner are mere ghosts of campaigns past, replaced by the likes of David Muir at ABC, whose newscast at times eerily and disturbingly resembles Entertainment Tonight. The journalists of yore were imperfect. But there was heft, responsibility and an understanding of politics and its place in our democracy. Mr. Thompson fit neatly into this landscape. He was the unencumbered outlier who wrote things that mainstream reporters knew to be fact but could not find a way to get into print. He realized that presidential politics is, at its core, a carnival. And he was delighted to be the barker who drew you into the tent of truth. He revealed what the candidates and their handlers sought desperately to conceal. As Mr. Taibbi noted, Mr. Thompsons exposure of all of these behind-the-scenes rituals was groundbreaking stuff. In the early 1980s I crossed paths with Mr. Thompson at the Palm Beach County Courthouse during the infamous Pulitzer divorce trial. (Talk about a carnival.) His reputation for ingesting staggering amounts of mind-altering substances was confirmed as he stood in a hallway, fidgeting, sweating bullets and devouring four Almond Joy candy bars. His mumbled phrases were delivered in a frenzied rat-a-tat cadence. I included this scene in a story I wrote about the Pulitzer divorce. A mutual friend forwarded my piece to Mr. Thompson, who vamoosed to Key West following the trial. He later contacted the intermediary and instructed her to deliver a message to me. Tell that fr that if I see him again, Ill rip his lungs out! Man, oh, man. We need Hunter Thompson now more than ever. s a s c s l bill CORNWELLSpecial to Florida Weekly

Tamarian Rugs The Th e Makes The Room Tag banned; Rover, Red Rover in jeopardyTwo suburban Minneapolis elementary schools this fall hired a consulting firm to advise officials on kids recess, and the leading recommendations (promoting safety and inclusiveness) were elimination of contact games in favor of, for example, hopscotch. Some parents objected; recess, they said, should be more freestyle, unstructured. (More consultants advice: De-emphasize refereed rules games in favor of monitors who simply praise effort.) One Minnesota principal noted improvement fewer fights and nurse visits now but as one parent said, her child feels that recess is no longer really playing.Bright ideasUnapparent Problem, Solved: Vladimir Laurent (an insurance executive in Coral Springs, Fla.) received his U.S. patent on Sept. 29 and can proceed mass-producing The Shield his brainstorm to keep mens genitalia from dragging on the inside of toilet bowls while theyre seated. Laurent told the South Florida Business Journal that his device was something he needed, personally (though hes aware that not all males experience the sensation). The Shield is basically a cup attached to the bowl by suction that allows movement via a ball-and-socket joint.Latest human rightsKentuckys government ethics law bars gifts from lobbyists to legislators, but state Sen. John Schickel filed a federal lawsuit in September claiming that he has a constitutional (First Amendment) right to receive them. (The laws were passed after the FBI found several Kentucky politicians selling their votes.) And in May, officials of the American Gaming (gambling) Association and the Association of Club Executives complained to the Pentagon that a threatened prohibition of the use of government credit cards at casinos and strip clubs violated card users constitutional rights, in that protected activities (such as business strategy meetings) take place at those venues. Cant possibly be trueFlorida Justice: Orville Lee Wollard, now 60, was convicted of aggravated assault in 2008 after he fired one warning shot into a wall of his home during an argument with his daughters boyfriend. Believing his shot defused a dangerous situation (the boyfriend had once angrily ripped sutures from Mr. Wollards stomach), Mr. Wollard had declined a plea offer of probation and gone to trial, where he lost and faced a law written with a 20-year minimum sentence. Florida has since amended the law to give judges discretion about the crime and the sentence, but Gov. Rick Scott and the states clemency board have refused to help Mr. Wollard, who must serve 13 more years for a crime he perhaps would not even be charged with today. InexplicableChristopher Hiscock, 33, got only a years probation after his guilty plea for trespassing on a ranch in Kamloops, British Columbia, in September because it was a trespass with panache. Since no one had been home, Mr. Hiscock fed the cats, prepared a meal, shaved and showered, took meat out of the freezer to thaw, made some coffee, started a fire in the fireplace, did some laundry, put out hay for the horses, and even wrote some touchingly personal notes in the residents diary (Today was my first full day at the ranch.

Dr. Hugo Spiers of University College London (and colleagues) inferred as much in a recent eLife article based on how neurons in the rodent brains hippocampus fire up in certain patterns. They discovered similar patterns when a rat is asleep just before conquering a food maze as when he awakens and actually gets to the food (as if it plotted by dream). (Buried lede: Rats have dreams.)

Make sure you know the rulesFloridas first bear hunting season in two decades opens Saturday, Oct. 24, in the East Panhandle, North, Central and South bear management areas. Because of the species population growth and the growing frequency of human-bear encounters, state wildlife officials have approved hunting as one part of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions overall approach in stabilizing expanding bear populations within certain areas of the state. Bear hunting season closes Oct. 30 or when the harvest objective is met for a particular bear management unit. Here are some tips from the FWC. For details about restrictions or more information, visit myfwc.com/bearhunting. Where you can hunt Southwest Florida is part of the South bear management unit, which comprises the Everglades region and the counties of Broward, Collier, Hendry, Lee, MiamiDade, Monroe and Palm Beach. The harvest objective for this unit has been set at 80 bears. Which license and permits you need You must have a hunting license (unless exempt) and a bear permit ($100 for Florida residents, $300 for others). The only people who arent required to pay for the permit are those who bought a lifetime hunting license before July 1998. But they still must obtain the permit if they want to hunt bears. How to find out if the harvest objective is met Check with the FWC after 9 p.m. each day of the hunt by calling 844-FWC-BEAR or going online to myfwc.com/bearhunting. What methods of take are legal The shooting hours of take for bears are the same as for deer: a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Hunters on private lands have the choice of using a bow or crossbow, muzzleloaders, rifles, handguns or shotguns. Numerous restrictions apply to each method. Baiting bears is prohibited. Dogs cannot be used to hunt bears, but a leashed dog can be used to help find a bear that has been shot. What bears are legal to take The bear a hunter takes cab may be either sex as long as it weighs at least 100 pounds live weight and is not with any cubs (defined as a bear weighing less than 100 pounds). How to comply with mandatory checking of harvested bears Hunters with a bear permit can only take one bear for the season. And if you are successful in harvesting one, whether taken on private or public land, you must bring it to an established bear check station within 12 hours of recovering it to have it checked and tagged. Maps listing the locations, addresses and hours of operation of these bear check stations are at myfwc.com/bearhunting.

HALLOWEEN SPECIAL $199 BEHIND THE WHEELMercedes-Benz E400 Cabriolet takes the wind out of your hairTheres a funny little lie we tell when romanticizing a convertible. Mentioning the wind in your hair feeling helps describe the freedom that an open top allows in only four little words. But in reality, taking a drop top road trip often means getting whipped around until the carload looks like a 1980s cover band on tour. It is this dilemma that makes the Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet so appealing. Many premium convertibles often come with the rear window wind deflector. Mercedes goes one step further, and in the process, arguably creates the best four-person convertible on the market. When the top is down and the wind is howling, the solution takes one touch of a button. Simultaneously a screen rises above the rear headrests, and a front airfoil emerges from above the windshield. The latter is exceptionally important. It is part of Mercedes-Benzs Aircap system, which helps create a taller airflow over the cabin than most other convertibles. What this means in the real world is that when the system is deployed and the windows are rolled up, there is a virtual dead zone quiet enough to hold a normal conversation. All occupants can enjoy the open-world view, but now your motley crew wont have to look or sound like Mtley Cre. Beyond engineering hair care, the E-Class convertible provides appeal worthy of the large three-pointed star at the front. The 2015 design update introduces some of its sedan siblings sporty bodylines, though the cabriolet holds onto last years more aggressive rear fenders. The electrically folding soft top holds a tight enough shape to give a sleek coupe-like appearance when in place. Still, it folds into a much more compact space like a good cloth roof should, and that frees enough trunk space to carry a couple of golf bags and weekend getaway luggage. Mercedes offers a long option list that proves to be a bit tempting. Our tester car came with the infinitely adjustable power front seats that should be in every year-round luxury convertible. They have cooling ventilation perfect for summer afternoons, and for autumn evenings, there is an in-seat vent providing heat directly to the back of the neck that Mercedes calls an Airscarf. If there is one complaint about the interior, it is that the optional COMAND infotainment unit is not a touchscreen. The software is quite modern, and the scrolling interface will never confuse any owner. But there will be plenty of fingerprints left by friends who are accustomed to taping on interactive displays the size of an iPad. Worrying about what the passengers are up to is a genuine concern because this is a social vehicle, but it also never loses the driver-oriented feeling thats a hallmark of good Mercedes-Benz. Trying to juggle both excitement behind the wheel and comfort for the three ridealongs finds an interesting harmony. Our E400 test car comes with a 329 hp 3.0-liter biturbo V6 that gives a nice aggressive bark at startup, but then it calms nicely into a barely noticeable hum. On the road, this motor acts like an oversized bodyguard that will roar to life instantly when needed, but then settles back in his corner until it is go time again. The steering and suspension have a similar strive for neutrality. No matter if the car is turning into a suburban driveway or diving into a corner, it crisply finds the center of the lane as quickly as possible without any fuss. This convertible might excel at all the right tasks for a comfortable cruising machine, but excellence comes at a cost. The $62,250 E400 is the less expensive of the two versions offered by Mercedes (plus, our favorite options were in packages that add nearly $4K on top of this.) Upgrade to the 402 hp E550 Cabriolet, and thats $68,700 before any nifty goodies like the hot/cold seats. The E-Class Cabriolet merges the worlds of performance, convertible, and luxury into an attractive package. This is not the car for heavy metal hair bands on a budget, but its perfect for starry night double dates and spontaneous family adventures. y s E w a i mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

With more than 45 years of involvement at Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida, I thoroughly believe that informed students are key to the success of our local economy, and it is our responsibility to expose these students to the tools and resources that will prepare them for a brighter future. JA of Southwest Florida does this, and so much more. We help students build a basic foundation of knowledge regarding what happens after school and understand that the decisions they make today will impact their futures. In order to promote this mission, we hold an annual Business Hall of FameCollier County event to honor two local business leaders as role models for youth through their professional accomplishments and commitment to the community. With more than 700 of our regions top business leaders in attendance, the evening offers students the opportunity to build relationships and learn from these successful individuals. Our students have become increasingly involved in the production of this event over the years, and now they run the majority of the evening. They act as moderators and greeters, give updates and share stories of their JA experiences. This year, Reinhold Schmieding, president and founder of Arthrex Inc., and Brian Stock, CEO of Stock Development, will be inducted as laureates into the JA Business Hall of Fame-Collier County. Both serve as great examples of success and entrepreneurship and have made a substantial impact within their respective industries that has proven to be beneficial for the Southwest Florida economy and community. JAs role in the lives of Southwest Florida students is crucial, and I believe that everyone should receive the information, training and knowledge that this organization instills. Looking back on my own experience, I wish I had had access to such resources as a young student. I am fortunate to be able to sponsor students each year who wish to attend the Business Hall of Fame-Collier County event. I look forward to sitting with these remarkable young men and women, learning more about them and hearing about what they are doing and what they hope to do in their lives. I hope youll join us in honoring Mr. Schmieding and Mr. Stock for embodying Junior Achievement of Southwest Floridas three pillars: entrepreneurship, work-readiness and financial literacy. It will be a wonderful evening of the Southwest Florida business community coming together in a big way to support our newest Business Hall of Fame laureates and the young people who are the future business leaders of America.

Frantz, MD, FACS One of our Countrys Top 5 Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgeons tea Modern Marco, a joint venture of the Marco Island Historical Museum and the Marco Island Historical Society, takes visitors back in time to the mid-1960s, when the concept of the island as it is today existed only in the imaginations of the Mackle brothers Elliot, Robert and Frank Jr. who developed it. The museums newest permanent exhibit, Modern Marco includes a model Deltona sales office, complete with ephemera from the period: architectural drawings and master plan, sales brochures, maps, posters and photos from the MIHS archives. An original Deltona promotional film from plays on a closed-circuit monitor, via a retrofitted vintage television. The exhibit also includes a model of the Marco Island Airways airliner, in 1:13 scale, that flew in prospective buyers from Miami to the island; a replica Tiki head from the bow of the Marco Islander catamaran used to ferry the buyers around the Island; and more than a dozen display panels focusing on the Mackle/Deltona story. Several other panels highlight milestones in Marcos history up until current times. Plenty of original artifacts a Marco Sari, worn by Island fashionistas in the 1960s, a Deltona stock certificate for 100 shares, a collection of commemorative champagne flutes marking Marco anniversaries, an early Marco Island cookbook and more are sprinkled throughout. A display detailing the stories of the Marco Island Airways, the Marco Beach Hotel, the Marco Island catamaran and the Tony Lema Golf Tournament is at the center of the room.Kudos for Paradise FoundThe Marco museum and its historical society are racking up awards this fall. The museums Paradise Found exhibit has received the 2015 Museum Excellence Award from the Florida Association of Museums, and the society earned two honorable mentions in the annual publication competition sponsored by the Southeastern Museum Conference. Pat Rutledge, MIHS president of the board and executive director, notes that the awards underscore our efforts to build the Marco Island Historical Museum into a world-class museum. Curator Austin Bell and a committee headed by Craig Woodward are responsible for the content and the configuration of Paradise Found, which chronicles the 6,000-year history of Marcos indigenous and Calusa Indians, the Spanish encounter and the Cushing dig. Exhibit design, fabrication and installation were by Creative Arts Unlimited of Pinellas Park. Entrants in the SEMCs annual publication competition can garner honors in a number of categories, among them gallery guides, annual reports, invitations, brochures/rack cards and books/catalogues. The MIHS submitted the brochure, event invitation and posters promoting the CATapult Campaign, which provides core funds for underwriting the return of the Key Marco Cat and other Calusa artifacts. The entry won honorable mentions in the brochures/rack cards category and in the campaign category. Naples resident Sally Woliver, a consultant to MIHS, created the concept and wrote the copy; Goodland artist Sherri Morrison did the layout and design. Work is underway on the museums next permanent exhibit: the Pioneer Room, focusing on the lives and accomplishments of Marcos early settlers. A fall 2016 opening is planned. Drama takes center stage at the Marco Island Historical Society meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3, at the Marco Island Historical museum, when Sarasota resident Penny Musco performs her onewoman play, Steal Away: The Story of a Homesteader and an Exoduster. The story focuses on a little-known piece of American history: the greatest migration of blacks from the South to other parts of the United States. Its set in 1880 and told from the perspective of Priscilla Sinclair, a white New Jersey woman who together with her family is determined to claim free acreage in Kansas courtesy of the Homestead Act of 1869. On her journey, she crosses paths and forms an unexpected friendship with fellow homesteaders Abigail and her family, former slaves from Mississippi. The fictional but fact-based narrative weaves together historical accounts of pioneering homesteaders and the story of an estimated 20,000-40,000 ex-slaves who flooded into the Midwest and the Great Plains after Reconstruction. They called themselves Exodusters, comparing their flight to the Biblical exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. The plays title comes from a Negro spiritual of the same name, referring not only to stealing away to heaven through death but also to a slaves intention to escape the clutches of his master. Ms. Musco originally wrote and performed Steal Away in 2009 as an artistin-residence working for the National Park Service at the Homestead National Monument on America in Nebraska. Since then, she has performed the play for community groups and at colleges, libraries and senior living residences nationwide. Her other writings have appeared in national publications including Family Circle, USA Today, Ladies Home Journal, The New York Times and the Chicago Sun Times. She has a bachelors of arts degree in theater from the University of Iowa and has worked in radio for many years. The performance is free for members of the MIHS and $5 for others.

Freedom Boat Club hosts special events each month at our club locations for our members, many of whom enjoy meeting other boaters and socializing together. What weve learned from focus groups is that many of our members also want opportunities to meet and boat with other members. In Naples, for example, several of our members like to fish together. One of our members will make a reservation and invite other members to join him. The next time, another will do the same. This group has become fishing buddies.

Many other parents simply believe it is a natural, loving thing to sleep with their baby. In either scenario, parents are creating a potentially life-threatening scenario. The only way to put a baby to sleep safely is alone, on his or her back, and in a crib or bassinet, says Naples pediatrician Debra Sheppard. And the sleeping space, she adds, should be clear of things like toys, blankets, or pillows. There is a significant rise in infant suffocation linked to bed sharing. According to government researchers, rates have quadrupled in the past 20 years. From 1997-2009, 70 percent of accidental child deaths in Florida were due to drowning or unsafe sleep environments. For children less than 1 year of age, twothirds of injury-related deaths were due to suffocation. Approximately 500 families in Collier County do not have a bed for their baby. The Archangel Fund for Collier County Charities of Trinity-By-TheCove Episcopal Church has awarded a $10,000 grant to the NCH Safe and Healthy Childrens Coalition of Collier County to purchase more than 200 Pack n Play portable cribs for babies of families in need. A Pack n Play is an economical solution to provide a safe sleep environment for a newborn or an infant. The NCH Safe and Healthy Childrens Coalition will partner with Florida Department of Health in Collier County, Physicians Regional Healthcare System, the Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida, the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida and Healthy Start of Southwest Florida to distribute the portable cribs to families in need. One of the agencies, Healthy Start, has an in-home visiting program that last year served 1,783 pregnant women and babies in Collier County. We easily identify the families in need, because we are in the home and can see who really needs help, says Cathy Timuta, executive director of Healthy Start of Southwest Florida. In addition to providing the beds, these organizations will also provide education and training on proper sleep positions and sleep environment for baby, all as part of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Awareness Month in October. There has been a Safe Sleep task force in Collier County since 2010. Agencies represented on this task force include: NCH, the Florida Department of Health-Collier County, the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida, Lighthouse Pediatrics, Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida, Collier County Sheriffs Office, Healthy Start of Southwest Florida, Charlies Kids, NCH Safe and Healthy Childrens Coalition and The American SlDS Institute.About the coalitionRecognizing that infant suffocation and other health and safety issues require a coordinated approach, 38 nonprofit and government agencies that serve families and children joined efforts in the creation of the NCH Safe and Healthy Childrens Coalition of Collier County. Over the past five years the coalition has grown its mission: to facilitate and implement programs to combat childhood obesity, prevent childhood drowning and reduce SIDS.

The FDAcleared CPR RSQ Assist makes it easier for bystanders to perform lifesaving CPR. According to the American Heart Association, nine out of 10 cases of sudden cardiac arrest occur in the home, often with family and friends unsure of how to preserve life until paramedics arrive. The CPR RSQ Assist has an audio-visual metronome that guides the rescuer through CPR administration, keeping the correct cadence of at least 100 chest compressions per minute for at least two minutes. The device can be used over light clothing and does not require mouth-tomouth contact. The local ACE Hardware stores are the first retail stores in the United States to offer the device.

First, she has presided over our affiliation and development with Mayo Clinic, which began three years ago after two years of consideration and deliberation. Upon becoming chair, Ms. MacDonald finalized the decision as one of her first priorities. Without such decisive leadership, NCH would not have been the first institution in Florida and the seventh in the nation to become a Mayo affiliate and thus be able to share Mayos lifesaving benefits with those we serve. Three years later, the results speak volumes for our patients, our institution and our community. Second, Ms. MacDonald has spearheaded our effort to join the Blue Zones Project, a bold move to help NCH migrate from a repair shop to an organization devoted to prevention. The Blue Zones Project is at least a 10-year journey to move everyone in our community regardless of socioeconomic class, gender, background or age into a longer, happier, and healthier life. Thanks largely to Ms. MacDonalds leadership style of educating, listening, responding and ultimately moving everyone in the right direction, the Blue Zones Project is now a reality for Southwest Florida. She is also is involved in health care at the state and federal levels, providing leadership for a variety of important cooperative programs aimed at improving health-care delivery. Locally, the MacDonalds are among our communitys most philanthropic families. Their extensive contributions to the pediatric program at NCH include the MacDonald SeaCAREium, a full pediatric unit with six progressive care beds, and more recently, the addition of the Robert, Mariann and Megan MacDonald Pediatric Emergency Room. Our FHA meeting was terrific. As chairman of the association, I was honored to introduce some great speakers, including keynoter. Laura Bush, wife of President George W. Bush; Capt. Mark Kelly, Commander of Space Shuttle Endeavors final mission; Dr. David Nash, founding dean, Jefferson School of Population Health, who framed the case for keeping people healthy; and hometown favorite Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and founder of the Blue Zones Project.

SinclairBA, LMTBY APPOINTMENT ONLY501 Goodlette Rd. North Naples, FL 34102lynsinclair.com Gi Certi cates Available BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickSavanna was born to run. The retired racing greyhound loved going on daily walks until the day she fell over for no apparent reason. A veterinary exam, X-rays and an MRI brought home the awful truth: Savanna had osteosarcoma, or bone cancer. The recommended treatment was amputation of her right hind leg and chemotherapy. Savanna was my dog, and choosing amputation for a 10-year-old former racer was one of the most difficult decisions my husband and I ever made. Have you ever faced the decision to have a pets limb amputated or eye removed, or wondered whether it was the right thing to keep a pet alive who had suffered a paralyzing injury? Pet owners who have faced these quandaries, myself included, are often surprised and delighted at how well their animals adjust to their new physical circumstances. Young or old, they usually adapt remarkably well to getting around on three legs, life without sight or rolling on wheels. While people may flinch at the thought of amputation or enucleation (eye removal), thats because we compare it to how we would feel about losing a limb or an eye. Our pets, fortunately, dont have any preconceived notions about their ability to get around on fewer than four legs or how theyll manage without one or both eyes. They adapt rapidly, shifting their center of gravity, making greater use of their senses of smell and hearing (not to mention those sensitive whiskers) and just generally getting on with life.You can, however, take steps to help your pet recover and learn how to get around. The key is to see him not as damaged goods, but as a regular dog or cat who simply needs a little help from his friends. Amputation. Young dogs or cats may be up and around the same day or the next day following surgery, but older animals, such as my Savanna, may have a longer recovery time. Talk to your veterinarian about the best medications for pain relief. Hell recover more quickly if hes not hurting. For a large dog, get a body harness with a handle that will allow you to help him stand up and move around until he gets his groove back. If you have uncarpeted floors, lay down nonskid rugs for ease of walking. Keep his weight down to avoid putting stress on his joints. Visit tripawds.com for more information. Blindness. The main factor in adjustment is how quickly vision is lost. A pet who loses vision slowly or at a very early age generally copes well, but one who loses vision rapidly or later in life may take two or three weeks to adjust. Walk blind dogs on leash and talk to them as you go so they always know where you are. Keep to the same route so they can use their sense of smell to recognize where they are. At home, feed blind pets in the same place every day. If they get disoriented, take them to the food bowl. Its a landmark that can help them regain their orientation. Paralysis. When a dog becomes paralyzed, consider whether the condition is painful and whether the pain can be relieved. If the dog is not in pain, he can likely adapt well to life on wheels. Make household changes such as blocking stairs so he doesnt tumble down them as hes racing around. You may need to learn how to express his bladder so he is at less risk for urinary tract infections. Confidence is probably the common denominator in any animals ability to live a normal life with a disability. Veterinarian Robin Downing fondly recalls Frankie, a pug mix she adopted who had been paralyzed after breaking his back. She anticipated that he would need several weeks to adapt to his wheelchair. We put him in the chair the very first time, and he wouldnt let me get him out of it, she says. Whether they lose a front or rear leg, animals can adapt well to life as a tri-pawd.

Although a friend posted it on my Facebook page, I didnt need to read it because for 36 hours in Asheville, N.C., this past weekend, I lived it. My husband Todd and I stayed in a teeny, weeny, itty, bitty, tiny house on the side of a steep mountain (OK, it was probably more of a hill, but when youre from Southwest Florida, anything higher than a speed bump in a gated community is a mountain). No worries, dear readers, Todd and I wont be divorcing, but we did learn the importance of having more than one bathroom and not having to climb a ladder to get to the boudoir. Seriously, I love the whole Tiny House movement and taking up less of a carbon footprint, getting rid of unnecessary clutter (how many corkscrews, Tupperware containers and coat hangers do we really need?) and living simply. And while our little 15-by15-foot loft cabin was super cozy, there is no way it would ever work for us in real life. Why? Because we are not magical elves. First off, when I booked the Tiny House on AirBnB, I had no idea that I would only be three weeks out from surgery for an incarcerated umbilical hernia. Mountains even hills are no joke when youve got scar tissue forming around the mesh on the inside of your naval. Adding to the peril, somewhere outside of Jacksonville, as Todd was pumping gas, he threw out his back. So, my poor spouse had to navigate my luggage (and his) on his own. Now, while Ill never admit to being a heavy packer, Im perfectly aware that when it comes to a weeklong road trip, I basically pack everything I own because I MIGHT NEED STUFF. Red bra? Black bra? White bra? Nude bra? Might need em. Five pairs of pants, four skirts, three maxi dresses, six tops, two pairs of pajama bottoms, three cardigans, four pairs of shoes, a heating pad, a Water Pic, and my gully-gully (yes, I have a blankie)? Might need em. I could go on, but needless to say, for poor Todd lugging my suitcase down to the tiny house, and back up, was a heroic feat. And once we were there, where does one put ones suitcase? I think we found a little corner in the dining room/shower area. There was a tiny kitchen, a tiny bathroom, a tiny futon, a tiny porch and tiniest bathroom sink Ive ever seen (we opted to brush our teeth in the tiny kitchen sink). All in all, it wasnt bad and had it not been for Todds bad back and my tender tummy, we would have had no complaints. But at 3 a.m., when its time to get up and use the tiny ladies room, maneuvering a ladder, especially after sharing a bottle of sauvignon blanc, is not for the faint of heart. I think, as a society, we love the look of tiny houses and the idea of shedding all our stuff, of living in simplicity. But in reality, we own Water Pics, shoes, hot pads and bras. We need room, we need our stuff. Most importantly though, when one of us has a bad back and the other has a bad abdomen, it doesnt matter if youre in a tiny house or a mansion: What we really need is each other. And one thing we discovered this weekend is that true love is far from tiny. Its as big as a mountain. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS email@example.com STEPHANIE DAVIS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe writer and her husband occupied this little cabin in Asheville, N.C., for two nights.

MONEY & INVESTINGTending to an ailing economy When is it beneficial to be really, really sick? When you are a patient in a medical drama TV show, of course. You come in as an ER patient with a sprained wrist? Youve got a 50-50 shot to make it out alive since your wrist probably has a South African flesh-eating parasite lodged in it that will be diagnosed after the second commercial break. However, if you arrive at that same ER with a sprained wrist and neon fluids dripping from your eyeballs? Well, then the Rain-Man-like, borderline supernatural doctor who can literally bring the dead back to life will be your attending with a team of sycophantic yet extremely attractive interns to back him up. In a medical drama, it is always better to be extremely sick as there is typically a 99.9 percent success rate in curing those patients. For some reason, the markets are now behaving like a medical drama where the sicker the economy gets, the better. Let me explain. There is little argument that the last several years have been great for corporate America and the stock market. In the last six years, the S&P 500 Index is up around 200 percent. Corporate earnings have broken records along with executive pay. Many credit the Federal Reserves low interest rate policy and stimulus programs such as quantitative easing for creating an environment for this success to occur. But now the Fed is threatening to reverse these policies. It has already stopped buying bonds to lower long-term rates. And now many in the Federal Open Market Committee believe it is time to raise short-term rates as well. How will stocks react in a rising rate environment? History shows that stocks do well in such a situation but many analysts are not so sure. They dont believe that the underlying global economy is really that strong and worry that the bull market will completely unravel when the Fed is not pushing it along. Much of the volatility and drops in the market lately were caused by investors pulling money out of the market as they believed the only thing supporting stocks was Central Bank support. Recently, though, we have seen a rise in the stock market on the back of very poor economic data. Job growth, consumer spending and inflation figures have all been disappointing. One would think that stocks would fall on such news. But today, poor economic news is actually hoped for by some analysts, as such reports may sway the Fed to postpone any rate hikes until at least 2016. These professionals believe that stocks can weather temporary poor economic news better than a Fed on the sidelines. Personally, I am not in this camp. I do not believe that rising rates will be bad for stocks at all. I feel like the worst thing for the stock market now is uncertainty. Once the Fed actually is on a path to raise rates, it will take much of the volatility out of the market, which is definitely good for investors. Plus, I am not sure how much good low rates are doing for the economy today. Most people have already refinanced their house and most corporations have taken out long-term debt. Will keeping rates at zero for another three to six months really boost the economy and the stock market that much? I think what will be good for stocks now is a better economy with higher wages and robust economic growth. Therefore, I am buying on good economic news and would be more apt to sell on poor news, bucking the trend we are seeing today. I think it is quite likely that we will see a significant drop in stocks once the Fed actually starts raising rates, whenever that may be. I would also be a buyer at that time. Because in the real world, most ER interns do not look like Victorias Secret super models and being healthy is always preferable to being sick, both in life and in your portfolio.

The finished bites are frozen and ready to be shipped to convenience and grocery stores throughout the United States and Canada. Pepperoni and cheese is the best seller, but the company has recently also launched a Bagel Bites Breakfast line. Its funny that it has taken us 30 years to take a brand built with bagels into breakfast, Ms. Sapos points out.ArthrexFounded: 1981 Founder and president: Reinhold Schmieding Headquarters: Naples Signature product: medical devices for minimally invasive surgery Did you know: Arthrex holds 311 U.S. patents. Founded in Munich, Germany, Arthrex moved the heart of its manufacturing operation and headquarters to Naples a decade later. It is the type of business that economic developers often point to as a success the kind of business the region needs more of. Arthrex now employs nearly 2,500 people locally who have helped the company develop its portfolio of more than 8,500 products and surgical procedures exported to more than 100 countries around the world. Arthrex selected Southwest Florida for its global headquarters because the area provides a higher quality of life for employees and their families and serves as an attractive destination for the thousands of visitors we host annually for medical education, wrote spokesperson Lisa Gardiner. Arthrex prides itself on continuing to pioneer products and procedures for arthroscopic or minimally invasive surgery and sports medicine with a corporate mission of helping surgeons treat their patients better, wrote Ms. Gardiner. For instance, Arthrex is developing techniques to repair a torn ACL so patients resume normal knee function sooner. Ninety percent of Arthrex products are made in the U.S., 70 percent in Southwest Florida. Sarlo Power MowersFounded: 1935 Owners: The Sarlo family Headquarters: Fort Myers Signature product: high-wheeled lawn mowers Did you know: Sarlo lays claim to being the oldest lawn mower manufacturer in the U.S. that has remained under single ownership. Some eight years ago, Italian immigrant and Fort Myers blacksmith Anthony Sarlo made a lawnmower with extra-high wheels that could more easily be pushed across sandy local soil and through tall grass, like a bicycle instead of a shopping cart. He had made it for his own use but soon friends and neighbors wanted one of their own. All these years later, the companys original headquarters, retail store and offices are on the same downtown corner at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Jackson Street. The shiny red mowers are made a few miles away where bars of steel and sheets of metal are cut, bent, welded, painted, assembled into the final product and shipped to local retail locations including Bonita Springs and Naples, dealers throughout the U.S., and some countries overseas. The business was passed down through the generations. President Tony Sarlo is a third-generation owner, and his children are set to take over next. Just this month at a major industry trade show, Sarlo is introducing a new 30-inch mower, and the first top to bottom redesign in company history. Called BigMo, it is unique for being a walk-behind mower that uses hydraulic technology normally reserved for larger riding mowers. While open to innovation, the company is still following the direction of its founder, Mr. Sarlo said. I think he put a lot of heart and energy in it and were doing the same today.Lolablue Founded: 2003 Founder and owner: Jamie Lovern Headquarters: North Port Signature product: natural, handcrafted soap Did you know: Lolablue makes a line of soap using beer. Formerly a graphic designer, Jamie Lovern started making soap out of her onebedroom apartment in Sarasota in 2003 and grew a following at local farmers markets. Her soaps and other products such as lip balm, deodorant and candles are still all natural and handcrafted, but now made at the companys warehouse and office in North Port. Making the soap is a process of heating and cooling mixtures in the right order, and then patience. Lye, pH-balanced water, a variety of oils and butters create a mixture like a pourable pudding. Then Ms. Lovern adds essential oils. She hand mixes the batches, pours them into wooden molds lined with freezer paper, and covers them. We call it putting them to bed, she said. One of her soap lines also mixes in beers such as Blue Moon, and is scented orange. She has also made bars using Guinness, Corona and suds from local craft breweries. A few days later the soap is unveiled, but its soft and needs to sit and harden for the next month. Although she no longer frequents farmers markets, Ms. Lovern opens the warehouse to to the public for retail sales on Thursday and Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday until 2 p.m. Mostly, the company is a wholesaler, with about 40 accounts including spas and health store retailers in Florida and throughout the U.S. PGT Industries Founded: 1980 Owners: Shareholders Headquarters: Venice Signature product: WinGuard impactresistant windows Did you know: PGT lays claim to being the largest impact window and door company in Florida by market share. With nearly 2,200 employees, one of Sarasota Countys largest private employers also has the largest market share of impact window and door business in the state, said PGT President Jeffrey T. Jackson. The companys large-scale manufacturing operation includes glass and assembly plants on its Venice campus. Its about in the middle of the state and we chose the west coast because mainly climate and weather and employment opportunities, Mr. Jackson said. The East Coast can get a little crowded even though East Coast is our biggest market. All the windows are custom made, measured to fit a home somewhere. They are made with a layer of PVB vinyl pressed between two layers of glass, then a layer of gas to reduce heat transfer, then a third layer of glass, before being shipped out of Venice by a fleet of trucks. About 60 percent of the business is windows, the rest doors. WinGuard is the companys most popular brand. Most sales are in Florida, some throughout the U.S. and in the Caribbean islands. We make Florida products for Florida people and its been a good recipe for us, Mr. Jackson said.Chris-CraftFounded: 1874 Owners: Steve Heese and Stephen Julius Headquarters: Sarasota Signature product: classic boats and yachts with teak accents Did you know: Chris-Craft has a reputation for being associated with high society figures who rode in them or owned them, including the Kennedys, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Helen Morgan, Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible III, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Frank Sinatra, Don Johnson on Miami Vice and even Lassie. Launched 141 year ago in Michigan, Chris-Craft boats became participants in U.S. history, including having its models used by the U.S. military during World War II. Mostly, the company gained a reputation for finely crafted pleasure boats and a popularity among high society. But the company was, you might say, taking on water in 2001 when it was bought by an investment group owned by Steve Heese and Stephen Julius. The new owners plugged the gaps by capitalizing on the heritage and nostalgia associated with the Chris-Craft brand, while also staying abreast of new technology. Thats the reason people are buying the boats, because of heritage, and we want to make sure that remains a focal point as well, said marketing manager Allison Scharnow. The boats and yachts are known for their teak wood accents (originally, mahogany was the companys wood of choice) and flared bow. One of ChrisCrafts newer models, Capri 21, has a vertical bow designed after 1930s models. They are all made in Sarasota, about 400 or 500 boats per year, at an operation that includes an upholstery and cabinetry shop. Near 60 percent are sold by dealers in the U.S. and the rest shipped overseas. TervisFounded: 1946 Owners: The Donelly family Headquarters: North Venice Signature product: Ringed tumblers that keep hot drinks hot, cold drinks cold Did you know: Tervis is a combination of the last names of its creators, Detroit engineers Frank Cotter and G. Howlett Davis. Tervis is the original insulated tumbler and a brand that has become widely known and copied. The Donnelly family purchased the business from founders Mr. Cotter and Mr. Davis in 1967. They employ 950 people and the tumblers are all manufactured in North Venice. The inner and outer parts of the twowalled cup are sealed by an ultra-sonic welder, and each tumbler is guaranteed for life. Theyre shipped to Tervis-owned stores, and more than 10,000 retailers. Its 16-ounce size is the most popular tumbler and the company recently introduced its first wine glass. Being based in North Venice just makes sense for the types of products we make, wrote Danene Jaffe, chief marketing officer. Even if you live in the Midwest, when you pick up a tumbler you are instantly transformed by what we call the Sunshine Life. We are also committed to the area and want to see business thrive within the community.Marketing Arm International Founded: 1993 Founder and president: Jose A. Lopez Headquarters: Port Charlotte Signature product: environmentally friendly fungicides and insecticides Did you know: The companys crop protection products and plant growth regulators are exported to more than 31 countries, including Mexico, South and Central America, the Caribbean and south east Asia. Awarded for its sustainable business practices and as a successful Florida exporter, Marketing Arm prides itself on making fungicides, insecticides, fertilizer and other products that are good for the environment. Theyre used by commercial farmers and others worldwide who growth things such as roses in Ecuador or avocados in the Dominican Republic. After 22 years, the Port Charlotte company is still growing with plans to break ground soon near an international distribution center at the Punta Gorda Airport. This facility will allow us to face tremendous growth that will require more technology and human resources, wrote director Monica Luna. Marketing Arm International will be creating jobs and contributing to the economic growth of Southwest Florida and specifically Charlotte County. Its the ideal county for the company headquarters and manufacturing operation because of the wonderful community, nice weather and great school system to raise a family, wrote Ms. Luna. Plus near location to many ports and international airports that facilitate worldwide travel and shipping. We live and work in paradise.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Keep Investing in RetirementIt might seem like you should save and invest until retirement, at which point you stop saving and start spending. But your investing days shouldnt end when you retire after all, your retirement might last several decades, so it would be good for your assets to keep growing. Retirees may wonder, though, where they can invest their money relatively safely. The traditional answer has been to invest in utilities, preferred stocks, REITs, bonds and other dividend-producing or interest-paying securities. You would collect the income and let the principal ride, focusing on income, not growing the base of the investment. Investing for growth means taking more risk, and risk was to be avoided at all costs or at least so said some advisers. That approach doesnt always work well, though, especially in our current era, which has featured companies cutting dividends in hard times, the deregulation of utilities, volatile bond markets, low interest rates, inflation and lengthening life spans. It might lead you to run out of money before you run out of breath. You might think youre doing the right thing by avoiding risk, but not taking enough risk with your retirement money can be the greatest risk of all. Bonds are good because they tend to be less volatile than stocks and can offer a certain fixed income. But they also tend to underperform stocks, and their prices drop when interest rates go up, as ours are expected to do soon. Stocks offer strong growth potential, and many also pay dividends, but they can be volatile and offer no guarantees. The stock market generally rises over the long run, but it can also crash and remain stagnant for several years. Given all that, it can be hard to figure out what to do. The solution to this quandary is asset allocation, which well tackle next week.

Wheres the Magic?Being a new investor, I mistakenly had this backward belief that since Coca-Cola was a large investor in Keurig Green Mountain, when the K-Cup companys share price dropped by more than $20 a share, Coke would somehow magically fix it in order to protect its investment. Not only did the magical Coke fairy not fix it, but the price recently dropped another $20. David M., PhoenixThe Fool Responds: Youre right that Keurig Green Mountain has been going through a rough patch lately. Its shares have plunged some 60 percent over the past year. That doesnt mean it or its shareholders are doomed, though. One problem the company has had to deal with is the expiration of its key K-Cup patents, opening the door to more competition. Keurig has tried to counter that, in part, with its Keurig 2.0 coffeemaker and its newly launched Keurig Kold machine, for cold drinks such as Coca-Cola sodas. Coca-Cola, which owns 16 percent of the company, cant magically fix Keurigs problems, but theres plenty of logic to the two companies working together. Coca-Cola offers Keurig great brands and resources. Still, it remains to be seen how interested Americans still are in making their own sodas at home and how many of them will want the Keurig 2.0. The Motley Fool recommends Keurig Green Mountain. IBM, the TransformerTechnology titan IBM (NYSE: IBM) has been going through some tough times in recent years, with revenue shrinking. Its share price has shrunk, too, by some 16 percent over the past year. Dont write off the company, though, as its offering an attractive entry price for long-term believers.Yes, its second-quarter earnings release wasnt unequivocally promising, but much of that was due to currency headwinds and divestitures. The company is shedding its underperforming business segments in order to focus on its most promising growth opportunities, such as cloud computing, big data and analytics. And in these key areas, IBM is delivering. Though late to the game, IBM is already one of the leaders in the fastgrowing cloud market. Big Blue sports a price-to-earnings ratio recently near 13 and a dividend yield topping 3.4 percent. Encouragingly, it has paid uninterrupted dividends since 1916 and has increased its payouts for 20 years in a row. This includes a vigorous dividend increase of 18 percent for 2015. It has also been buying back lots of shares, boosting the value of remaining ones for shareholders. Transformations are seldom easy, but IBM has the brand reputation and strategic resources to adapt to emerging industry trends. It operates in a challenging and dynamic industry, but if management can jumpstart sales growth, the companys stock is offering considerable upside potential from currently depressed price levels. My name is the result of a 1996 merger between Ciba-Geigy and Sandoz, but my roots go back to a trading company founded in 1758 to deal in materials, chemicals, dyes, and drugs of all kinds. My early products included synthetic fabric dyes. Ciba introduced its first pharmaceuticals, the antiseptic Vioform and the anti-rheumatic agent Salen, in 1900. Today, based in Switzerland and with a market value topping $200 billion, Im a major pharmaceutical company, specializing in eye care and generic drugs, among other things. I employ about 120,000 people around the world. Who am I? (Answer: Novartis) Double-dipping?QIf mutual funds pay capital gains taxes each year for stocks they sold, why, when an investor then sells the mutual fund shares at a later date, does he also have to pay taxes on the gains? It seems as if Uncle Sam is double-dipping here. R.L., Lawton, IowaAA mutual fund doesnt pay taxes on capital gains of stocks sold during the year. You do. By law, the fund must distribute all income from dividends, interest and capital gains to the funds shareholders. Funds report such distributions to shareholders (and to the IRS) on Form 1099. And when a distribution is made, the funds share price is adjusted downward to reflect the distribution. Most shareholders have those distributions reinvested in additional mutual fund shares (which doesnt avoid taxation on the distributions). When you liquidate your holdings in a mutual fund, youll be taxed on any gain over the purchase price paid for each fund share held. This isnt double taxation.

Already? If youve been shivering with anticipation for the next seasonal viewing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, props, quips and all, Bonita Springs is the place to be. Lipsticked enthusiasts are invited to an outdoor screening of the 1970s cult phenomenon at 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30, at the Center for the Arts Bonita Springs. Cross-dressing, toast and counterpoint dialogue from viewers are hallmarks of a Rocky Horror event. In its heyday, the films most diehard enthusiasts saw it hundreds of times and cemented what are now audience rituals that require props, costumes and a slavish devotion to reenact and participate in the inanity on screen. As a teenager, my first apartment was in Boston and down the street was Lets do the Time Warp again Exploringthe Koreshans Professors riveting narrative sheds light on a long-gone utopian religious communeThe career of self-proclaimed prophet and savior Cyrus Teed of Koreshan Unity fame began in the 1870s in Upstate New York. Here Mr. Teed started preaching his ideas regarding a hollow earth (we live inside of the sphere, not on top of it), socialism, celibacy, his own transcendence and other arcane matters. The Koreshan Unity didnt gain much traction until after Mr. Teed relocated its headquarters to Chicago in the late 1880s. And even though it would be impossible to found a New Jerusalem in the Windy City, he was able to build his following and do a better job of fundThe Allure of Immortality: An American Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Renegade Prophet by Lyn Millner.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS The giver It began with a silver tissue box, the kind you slip over a carton of Kleenex, and a small silver tray that a lady might drop her rings into at the end of the night. They sat waiting for me on my front porch when I got home, just a few days after Id moved into my house. No note, no indication whom they might be from. Just two silver trinkets. Gifts, evidently, for me. When I saw my neighbor the next morning, I said, Thank you for the tissue box. She looked at me, confused. What tissue box? You know, the one you left on my porch yesterday? My neighbor shook her head. I dont know what youre talking about. No? I said. Then, its a mystery. A few days later, I came home to find a silver platter on my porch. Really? I asked my neighbor. You swear this isnt from you? I swear, she said. Was it possible these gifts were intended for the houses former owner? Perhaps the giver didnt realize she had moved. A long stretch of time passed without any new gifts, and I assumed the giver had figured out his or her error. Until recently, when I came home to an antique porcelain bowl. Not long afterward, there was a set of handmade blue candles. Then a stack of magazines. The magazines were about antiquing and decorating, very much in the same style as the other gifts. As I paged through them, I realized that the mailing labels had been carefully removed. Maybe you should call the cops, my neighbor said. It was odd that the gifts arrived without any note. Strange, too, that they always showed up when I was away from the house. But they didnt feel threatening, and the mystery behind the giver somehow made them more special. Several weeks ago, I had a series of bad days, one of those stretches of time when I am irritable and sad, my faith in humanity temporarily disrupted. These moods always pass, but when Im in the middle of them I feel as if Ill never come up for air. Early one evening, I pulled into my driveway feeling especially foul. It was raining; it had been raining for days. I walked to my front door, key in hand, and there I found another gift. Unlike the others, this one had been wrapped in plastic grocery bags, I imagine to keep it out of the rain. I looked around, but no one was there. Inside my house, I unwrapped the package and discovered an old wooden sailboat. Roughly the size of a breadbox, the boat had been outfitted with miniature lines and rigging. Smooth sailing, said a little placard on the base of the boat. I smiled, despite my bad humor. The gift was a very bright spot in a series of dark days. Life, I have found, is filled with endless surprises. Some of these surprises, I think, point to the goodness in this world. Ive stopped trying to figure out who leaves the gifts. It doesnt really matter. The message is still the same.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 22-28, 2015 ing his movements activities there. Mr. Teed developed ardent supporters, far more women than men, and built larger audiences for his lectures. There were always those who considered him a quack, yes, but there were enough diehards to sustain the movement. The would-be New Jerusalem ended up being built in the community of Estero right here in Southwest Florida, where Koreshanity flourished for about a dozen years starting in the mid-1890s and attracting about 250 members at its peak. After Mr. Teeds death in I908 (he didnt ascend, though followers were watching hopefully), the movement began to fade. Whats left of it now are the historic buildings and interpretive exhibits at the Koreshan State Historic Site and the comprehensive history and assessment found a glorious new book by Lyn Millner, associate professor of journalism at Florida Gulf Coast University. At once fascinating biography and contextualizing cultural history, Ms. Millners study puts the Koreshan movement squarely in the company of many other friendly and rival organizations, among them Christian Science, Swedenborgian thought and the Brook Farm community. Some of these shared Mr. Teeds mistrust of capitalism as well as his enthusiasm for reconciling science and religion. Labeled by Mark Twain as The Gilded Age, the late 19th century saw rapid industrialization, wage growth and life-changing technologies that kept proliferating. Railroads soon drew the country together. Electric lighting turned night into day. And soon the motor car exploded the horizons of families and individuals. Ms. Millner sees Mr. Teed and his Koreshan Unity church against this backdrop of accelerating technological change. One of the books spellbinding sections describes the experiments by Mr. Teed supporters that proved to themselves at least the validity of their hollow earth theory. Mr. Teed and others were enthralled by the amazing rebirth of Chicago after its near-death by fire. The iconic Worlds Columbian Expedition (spring-fall 1883) was a major stage in projecting an era of limitless possibilities. It was the magnificent anteroom to the 20th century. To tell Mr. Teeds story is to tell the story of his supporters, followers, rivals and detractors. Ms. Millner breathes life and magnitude into a large cast of characters, people who were ready to take chances, who needed to give their lives meaning and who would find both ecstasy and disappointment in their relationships to the charismatic Koreshan leader and his grand endeavor. Though Mr. Teed was an accomplished manipulator of the media (mainly newspapers, in his day), he often found himself the target of harsh diatribes and legal actions. His inhouse propaganda machine, primarily the Flaming Sword and American Eagle periodicals, was usually up to the task of getting his spin out. Once Ms. Millners book brings the scene to Estero and its surroundings, readers find a colorful portrait of how the broad tendencies of the time mentioned above impact a largely undeveloped rural area that was first reached by telegraph connection in 1869 at nearby Punta Rassa, then a commercial hub for the sport fishing and cattle industries. Her portrayal of natural beauty and constant hardship during the Koreshan Unitys Florida period infuses Ms. Millners narrative of the slow accretion of the so-called citys key structures. She details the communitys living arrangements, the hierarchy of power and responsibility, its money-making enterprises (a bakery, for example) and its relationship with those already established in Estero. But mostly its through her portrait of the enigmatic and flamboyant Cyrus R. Teed, with his various self-anointed titles, that the author holds our attention. For this achievement Mr. Teeds hovering spirit should be at once laughing and eternally grateful. The Allure of Immortality is a research extravaganza. Copious endnotes and an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources provide future scholars with a big head start. nAbout the authorLyn Millner founded the journalism program at Florida Gulf Coast University. Her specialties include writing, multimedia and mobile journalism. She leads Face-to-Face: Conversations with Journalists, a news literacy program for college and high school students. Her radio stories have been broadcast on NPRs Morning Edition and Weekend Edition, and on American Public Medias Marketplace and Weekend America. Her print work has appeared in USA Today, Oxford American magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, Boca Raton magazine and Gulfshore Life. Before joining the faculty at FGCU, she taught journalism at Florida International University, where she earned an MFA in creative nonfiction. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. KORESHANSFrom page 1Phil Jason: How did you get hooked on this project? Lyn Millner: I kept wondering why well-educated, seemingly sane people would give up their comfortable lives, believe in a man who told them he was a prophet and follow him to a jungle to build a city. Furthermore, they believed we lived in a hollow earth. Yet, based on what I knew of them, they didnt seem crazy. I couldnt reconcile that. The book started as a magazine story, but 2,000 words didnt come close to explaining what I wanted to know. And the more I learned about the Koreshans, the more there was to learn. PJ: As you conducted your research, what were your biggest surprises? LM: One of the stories told over and over is how the Koreshans kept Mr. Teeds body in a bathtub for several days after he died in 1908. On Christmas Day, they believed they saw signs that he was returning to life, and they called everyone to the house on Fort Myers Beach to view the body. Fairly early in my research, I saw a letter from a follower mentioning that they had taken photos. A couple of years ago, I was looking through some digitized material on the Koreshan State Historic Site archives, and found a blurry snapshot one of the rangers had taken. It was of a glass plate negative held up to a window. There it was: the image of Mr. Teeds body, draped with a sheet from the waist down, laid lovingly in the bathtub, and swollen. Seeing it transported me into that room with the followers who were watching and waiting. Before that, I had known, intellectually, that they believed he was divine. When I saw the photo, I could feel their belief, viscerally. PJ: Are you an outliner? LM: Yes, an obsessive one. Outlining saves time, and it suits who I am. I like to put things in order. When I started the book, I dropped the main events into an Excel spreadsheet and estimated where theyd fall, pagenumber-wise, based on chronology. I also outlined each chapter and wrote a summary of it so I knew what I needed to cover in the draft. The outline and the summaries changed, of course, drastically and constantly, but having them gave me a clear direction. PJ: How do you mix drafting and revising? LM: I wrote a complete draft first without revising much. Early in my writing career, I gave in to the very strong urge to make a passage perfect before moving on. With smaller pieces, you can do that (though I dont recommend it), but with something as long as a book, you have to keep moving and keep the entire story in your head. Otherwise, youll never get it written. So heres my system, which I use for everything now: As I write a first draft, when I run across a hole or anything that threatens to bog me down, I type a bracket [ ] in the text with a note to myself. So my draft for this book contains things like [get exact dialog] or [explain what Spiritualism is here] or [weather that day?]. Later, I search my brackets and fill them in as time allows. PJ: What was the most difficult or unpleasant part of this endeavor? LM: The days I didnt feel like writing. And skipping a day, for me, makes it harder to go back to a project. My solution was to have a second cup of coffee. On those days, I was really grateful for my outline, which functioned as a work plan. And if I really couldnt get motivated to write, Id search the brackets I had left for myself and fill in some blanks, taking care of the menial, easy things. PJ: What gave you the most enjoyment? LM: Working with my editor. I love editing, and she made the book immeasurably better. PJ: How did your relationship with the publisher develop? LM: In 2011, just before the Miami Book Fair, I sent a letter to the editor in chief at the University Press of Florida, asking whether I could submit my book proposal. At the fair, I stopped at their booth and met Dennis Lloyd, then the sales and marketing director. There was a biblical rainstorm at the fair the day before, and Dennis was getting the booth back into shape. I saw how much he loved books and how committed he was to selling them and how well he knew the list, and I really hoped I would get to work with him one day. He put in a good word for me and I heard back from the editor that next week, inviting me to submit my proposal and sample chapters. She suggested revisions to the proposal, I made them and we signed a contract.

Every single Friday night the line was around the block. Thats how people are about it. She expects the same thing at the center. Part of the motivation to host a screening, Ms. Shields adds, is that Rocky Horror Picture Show offers an offbeat and inclusive way for adults to participate in Halloween, especially when most of the events in town are geared for children. Adults like to be spooky and goofy, too, and this is a great opportunity to indulge in some mature holiday fun. Adults dont get the same opportunities to dress up and be silly that kids do, she says. This is a good opportunity to be goofy. Those who arrive in a characterthemed get-up will be entered in a raffle, and classic Rocky Horror props such as rice and toast to throw at the screen will be for sale. Also, members of the centers improvisational theater group will serve as the shadow cast, an integral part of the audience experience in which actors perform the show as its being screened. For Rocky Horror virgins, as enthusiasts call people who havent experienced the show in all its quirky splendor, its important to note that the film is for mature audiences. The plot revolves around the arrival of newly engaged couple, Brad and Janet, at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a crossdressing Transylv anian who has staffed his home with a number of outlandish and antisocial characters. Hijinx ensue that involve all manner of misbehavior: infidelity, mind control, non-consenting titillation, cannibalism, musical slavery, intergalactic espionage, lobotomies, liberal use of the prefix trans and more. Ms. Shields suggests that families with teenagers might enjoy the show together. Ive mentioned it to people in their 50s and they love it.

ARTS COMMENTARY Gulfshore Playhouse opens season with a fresh, authentic masterpieceYoud be forgiven for thinking you dont want to see The Glass Menagerie by Gulfshore Playhouse. You were probably forced to read this Tennessee Williams play in high school. The drama department might have even put on a production. Or you might have seen it as an adult and just found the character of Amanda to be a shrill, overbearing mother who harps on her kids without mercy when she isnt boring them with stories of her youth. But youd be mistaken. If you dont see this show, youll be doing yourself a great disservice. This is a fresh, authentic production that blows the dust off of this classic. It avoids stereotypes and clichs and presents us with real, struggling human beings. Founding Artistic Director Kristen Coury has directed it with a light touch, veering from any mawkishness or over-sentimentality. The Glass Menagerie deals with the very human feelings of hope, longing and regret through the eyes of this small struggling family: a mother whos living in the past, a son who longs to escape into the future and a daughter who wants to hide from the present. Tom (Eric Gilde) both narrates the play and is a character in it; he looks back at a time when he was itching to escape his family and have adventures out in the world. Mr. Gilde moves back and forth in both roles with ease, delivering his lines with the earnestness of a youth whos yearning to escape the confinement of his family and childhood and narrating with an adult ruefulness while reflecting back on this time. He goes to the movies almost nightly, to experience a more exciting life, albeit vicariously. He complains of the actors in Hollywood having adventures (and) hogging it all Hollywood characters are supposed to have all the adventures for everybody in America, while everybody in America sits in a dark room and watches them have them! Im tired of the movies and I am about to move! he declares. His sister, Laura (Andrea Lynn Green), is painfully shy, partially due to a slight limp she has. Ms. Green portrays her dreamy character with great subtlety. There are moments when she turns away and allows herself a secret smile, as if her small moments of joy are too private to share.Their mother, Amanda (Amy Van Nostrand), is a Southern woman who once led a life of ease. Now she finds herself living in St. Louis with her two children, abandoned by a husband who used to work for the telephone company but left them long ago to fend on their own. (As the playwright humorously tells us, through Tom and Amanda, he was a telephone man who fell in love with long distance.)Amanda remembers when she had servants to do all the work and was being courted by 7 gentlemen callers. Now shes reduced to selling subscriptions to The Homemakers Companion, a womens magazine with serialized romance stories, over the telephone. (Its interesting that although she berates her son for going to the movies so much, she herself is selling a means of escape to others.) Ms. Van Nostrands acting is something to see; she simply owns the role of Amanda. Itd be easy to play her character as one-note, but Ms. Van Nostrand skillfully navigates this tightrope of a role, presenting us with a much more complex person who cares for her children and fears for the future. Ben Jacoby plays Jim, Toms friend whos invited for dinner. He was a hero in high school, someone Tom describes as shooting with such velocity through his adolescence that you would logically expect him to arrive at nothing short of The White House by the time he was thirty. But Jim has met with obstacles and difficulties, and now hes working at the same shoe warehouse as Tom. Mr. Jacoby plays his character as brash, but likeable, with great sensitivity toward Laura. Hes struggling, but optimistic about a future that, he declares at one point, will be even more wonderful than the present time is! There is pathos in this production, but also great humor in the family interactions. Presented in partnership with the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company in Vermont this summer, the production surely benefitted from that previous run, as this quartet of actors have grown into these roles. Daniel Conways set gives us a whisper of a home, as flimsy and ethereal as a memory, with the outside world a St. Louis alley represented with brick and pipe and metal fire escapes. This gripping production of The Glass Menagerie is nothing short of astounding. It draws you in and makes you feel for its characters, while also appreciating the beauty of Mr. Williams poetic dialogue. It gives you the gift of seeing this classic play with new eyes.Ringling International Arts FestivalThe Ringling International Arts Festival in Sarasota (Oct. 15-18) is an eagerly anticipated annual event. It brings cuttingedge, innovative acts from around the world, typically seen in New York City and London, and is well-worth attending. No matter where you live in Southwest Florida, its worth the drive. While previous years have presented an eclectic line-up, this year, for the first time, the festival had a theme: all-Asian performances, to tie in with the Ringlings new Asian wing, scheduled to open in early 2016. Many of the acts seemed strangely subdued, and some did not even run the full hour, coming to an end quicker than expected. I attended three shows in one day, with mixed results. The Tao Dance Theater presented three dances, set to the minimalist music of Steve Reich. The dancing itself went hand-inhand with the music, with repetitive, minimalist, almost ritualistic steps. I found it hypnotic, mesmerizing, and was lulled into an almost meditative state. The second dance was presented on film: a lone dancer twirling a pole, with the action at times slowed down. Sometimes, it looked as though the dancer was twirling a beam of light better than a Star Wars light saber. The second show I saw was Shanks Mare, a puppet show created by Tom Lee and Koryu Nishikawa V. It was presented in the Historic Asolo Theater, but wouldve benefitted from being in one of the venues smaller, more intimate theaters. The puppet of a deer, manipulated by three people, was outstanding, but the other puppets were so far away they were difficult to see in any detail. The story, a 40-minute condensed version of a longer piece that will premiere in New York next month, was also difficult to follow, as a major character (and fellow puppeteer Mr. Nishikawa) was missing. The evening ended with Khmer Metal, a performance by Phare, The Cambodian Circus. The events set in a bar, with a negligible storyline; what really matters are the circus acts. There was some hat juggling and a Diablo act, but what really wowed were the contortionist and acrobatics. The former included a woman shooting a balloon with a bow and arrow manipulated with her feet while twisted almost 360 degrees, and the latter included a man doing a back flip onto the shoulders of a second man who was standing on the shoulders of third. The feats electrified the crowd who cheered and applauded. It was a nice, upbeat ending to a somewhat low-key day. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Glass Menagerie>> Who: Gulfshore Playhouse >> When Through Oct. 25 >> Where: The Norris Center, Naples >> Info: (866) 811-4111 COURTESY PHOTOSEric Gilde as Tom and Andrea Lynn Green as his sister, Laura, in a scene from the Gulfshore Playhouse production of The Glass Menagerie. www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 22-28, 2015 12th Ave. S. at the City Dock 239-263-9940 NaplesWaterfrontDining.com The stars are bright and the temperaturE is just right for dining on the water at The Dock

He might not be able to come up with a plan that guarantees success against all possible distributions, but he should try to find the line of play that gives him the best chance to succeed. Consider this deal where West led a diamond against South's four-heart contract. Declarer won East's nine with the queen and could count 12 tricks if the diamonds were divided 3-2. West's opening lead, however, had all the earmarks of a singleton, and if it was, the contract was in distinct jeopardy. Declarer's task, therefore, was to seek a line of play that would succeed against a 4-1 diamond break as well as a normal 3-2 division. Accordingly, he cashed the A-K of hearts and was gratified to see both opponents follow suit. He then abandoned further trump leads, leaving a heart at large and the jack in dummy as a later entry, and led the eight of diamonds. This gave West a chance to ruff, but if he did, dummy would follow low, and declarer would wind up with 11 tricks five hearts, five diamonds and a club. And if West discarded instead, South would win in dummy, ruff a low diamond high, cross to the jack of hearts and again finish with 11 tricks. West's play was therefore immaterial. Note that if declarer had not taken the trouble to assess the situation and had instead blithely drawn three rounds of trumps at the outset, he would have gone down. The 4-1 diamond break plus the unfavorable location of the ace of spades would have limited him to nine tricks.

Its 20 minutes too long, and the two-act story structure is tedious and never invites emotional investment. This is a misfire for Mr. Hanks and for director Steven Spielberg. Rated PG-13.Freeheld (Julianne Moore, Ellen Page, Michael Shannon) Happy gay couple Laurel (Ms. Moore) and Stacie (Ms. Page) fight to have Laurels pension given to Stacie after Laurel is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Its an emotional gut punch of a movie thats a bit clunky at times but overall very effective. Rated PG-13.Pan (Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund) In this prequel to Peter Pan, orphan Peter (Mr. Miller) is whisked away to Neverland, where he befriends Hook (Mr. Hedlund) and together they battle Blackbeard (Mr. Jackman). The visual effects are great, but the performances and costume are too hokey. Directed by Joe Wright (Anna Karenina, Atonement), who often makes unusual creative decisions that dont work. Rated PG. The Walk 1/2(Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon) Frenchman Philippe Petit (Mr. Gordon-Levitt) plots to walk between the World Trade Center Towers on a high wire in director Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) latest. The setup is occasionally clunky, but the actual walk between the towers is breathtaking. Rated PG.Sleeping with Other People (Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Amanda Peet) After sleeping together in college, Jake (Ms. Sudeikis) and Lainey (Ms. Brie) reunite 12 years later at a sex addicts meeting but swear theyll be just friends. Its a romantic comedy, so you can imagine how this turns out. Still, its pretty funny and worth a look. Rated R.The Martian (Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels) An astronaut (Mr. Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on Mars. Meanwhile, NASA discovers hes still alive and starts a plan to rescue him. A visually stunning and wonderfully told drama, it might be the best sci-fi movie of director Ridley Scotts career which is saying something, considering he made Blade Runner and Alien. Rated PG-13. Pawn Sacrifice 1/2(Tobey Maguire, Liev Schreiber, Peter Sarsgaard) Chess prodigy Bobby Fischer (Mr. Maguire) loses his sanity as his acclaim grows once he becomes a world famous player. The performances are strong enough to make this worth seeing, but its a tough sell to an already niche audience focused on a man whos extremely difficult to like. If it fails at the box office itll be because its nearly impossible to market. Rated PG-13.

NoEarly in Crimson Peak, a gothic horror pic from writer/director Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy), a little girl named Edith (Mia Wasikowska) is warned by a ghost to beware of Crimson Peak. Ten years later, the same ghost reappears, again with a reminder to beware of Crimson Peak. Im not sure about you, but if I were Edith, there would be no way youd get me around anything crimson or a peak, ever. And yet, Edith does not take caution. She completely ignores the warning, really. Youd think she wouldnt marry a man who operates a red clay mining company, let alone live with him in a creepy mansion right where the clay comes from but that would make sense. And little of Crimson Peak makes sense. Its the early 1900s, and Edith lives in upstate New York with her industrialist father (Jim Beaver). Then Thomas (Tom Hiddleston) and his sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain) come to town seeking financing for their family-held mining company. After a serious of tedious scenes that run far too long and subplots of social tension that mean nothing, were left with this: Although a local doctor (Charlie Hunnam) is in love with her, Edith decides to marry Thomas, who to be honest, did a much better job of sweeping her off her feet. The newlyweds move to Thomas family estate in England. Cold, drafty and dreadful, the residence has little light, forbidden rooms, ghosts everywhere and a gaping hole in the roof. But worse than all that: Lucille lives with them. Why a young couple would want a nagging sister around is inconceivable, but its clear that Thomas and Lucille have ulterior motivations. The fact that these motivations and other secrets take too long to be revealed is one issue among many with this film. The violence isnt excessive but it is graphic, meaning Crimson Peak earns its R rating even though it probably shouldve been toned down for a PG-13. The ghost story is underdeveloped (and not scary), the love story isnt believable, and the resolution isnt satisfying. From a narrative standpoint, the plot feigns to generate interest, which is a disappointment given the lavish production values. Indeed, the film looks slick and gothic and vivid. The production design has an aged authenticity that feels era-appropriate, and the costumes suggestively reflect the innocent or sinister motivations of their inhabitants. Theres also artistry in the cinematography. Note the park scene in which Thomas and Lucille reveal that theyre scheming against Edith: Theyre in the foreground enshrouded in shadow, symbolizing a darkness to their actions, while Edith is in the background basking in sunlight, ignorant of the nefarious plot that awaits her. This is smart filmmaking in that the viewer subconsciously registers these elements and becomes more invested in the characters. Too bad Crimson Peak didnt have more of this craftsmanship. For as appealing as it looks, the story simply doesnt do it justice, and without a better story the visual pleasures ultimately fall flat. I suggest you find something else to watch this Halloween season. y t t m o r dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Thomas and Lucilles house in Crimson Peak was built from scratch at Pinewood Studios in Toronto.

But how did it start? There were similar celebrations dating back to ancient times but the modern holiday started about 1910. There was a Halloween Carnival party and a king and queen were chosen in 1904. The Dennison Co. started selling costumes, crepe paper and instructions for Halloween decorations by 1910. About 1920 paper lanterns and paper pumpkins turned into jack-o-lanterns became popular. The same type of stiff paper was used in Germany to make Halloween candy containers. The 1920s also saw the idea of trick or treating come into fashion. To get a treat of candy, the costumed visitors had to perform. Some of the 1930s jack-o-lanterns were made of celluloid. And by the 1940s, hard plastic had arrived. Witches seem to have been added to the holiday by the 1930s and the black dress, pointed hat and flying broom were important. The green face was probably inspired by the wicked witch in The Wizard of Oz movie, but witches are getting nicer and better looking at todays celebrations. Could that be because nice witches starred in TV shows like Bewitched? And trick or treat bags didnt appear before about 1948. Before that, any plain paper bag or cloth sack was fine. Since 1900, toy makers have added to the holiday fun with games and toys using all the popular symbols. Save the trick-or-treat bags this year. They are becoming popular collectibles. Q: I have a bentwood and leather chair with a metal label that reads Sno-Shu. What can you tell me about the company that made it? A: Sno-Shu chairs were made by W.F. Tubbs Co., a snowshoe manufacturer in Norway, Maine. The chair seats and backs have rawhide webbing similar to the webbing in snowshoes. The company was in business from 1906 to 1939 and made snowshoes, dog sleds and chairs. Tubbs sold his business in 1923. American Fork and Hoe Co. was the owner in 1928. The company moved to Wellingford, Vermont in 1932 and continued to make Sno-Shu chairs for a few years. Q: I bought a Smith Corona Classic 12 manual typewriter from the SCM factory in Gro-This friendly witch is a windup toy on wheels. The composition figure with tin base is 5 inches high. It sold for $413 at a Bertoia auction in Vineland, N.J., in September 2014.

It came in the Trimline carrying case. I have the original booklet and warranty that came with it. I bought a new ribbon for it in 2004 and its still in excellent condition. What is the value? A: Smith Corona was formed by the merger of two typewriter manufacturers, L.C. Smith & Brothers Typewriter Co. and Corona. The companies merged in 1926 and the name was changed to Smith Corona, Inc., in 1949. The Classic 12 was made in the 1960s. Smith Corona stopped making typewriters in 1998 but sold typewriters made in South Korea until 2009. The company is still in business, selling pressure sensitive labels and thermal transfer ribbons. Your typewriter could sell to someone who wants to use it. Value of your typewriter, about $30 to $50 for most, about $100 for mint in the case. Most are bought to use. Q: Can I use boiled linseed oil on my woven oak splint baskets? My dads aunt made them in the early 1900s. Some of the splints are starting to dry out and crack. How can I keep them from splitting more? A: Dont use linseed oil or any other kind of oil. It can get sticky and will make the splints harder and darker. For routine care, dust the baskets with a feather duster or use the vacuum cleaner, but first wrap an old nylon stocking around the nozzle. You can clean the splints by blotting with a damp white cotton cloth. Let your baskets share the bathroom with you when you take a shower. The hot, moist air is good for the basket. Splint baskets benefit from a light shower or misting once or twice a year, but dont soak the splint. Let the basket dry completely in a spot away from direct sunlight. Some sources recommend soaking the baskets in cool water for 30 minutes, but that can cause the splints to warp. Keep baskets away from direct sunlight, heating vents, the fireplace and any other heat sources that will dry out the splint. Q: What is a fore-edge book? A: The fore edge of a book is the edge opposite the spine. In a fore-edge book, the edges of the pages are painted or gilded to make a picture when the book is closed. Fore-edge paintings may have been done as early as the 10th century. In the 17th century, artists began painting slightly inside the outside edge of the page so the picture was only visible when the pages were fanned out. Double foreedge paintings also were done so two different pictures were visible depending on which way the pages were fanned. A lot of fore-edge paintings found today are later additions to old books. Fore-edge books sell for a few hundred dollars or more. Tip: A monogram can be removed from an old piece of silver by a competent jeweler or silversmith. But it is easier to tell friends that the strange initials on the platter are those of a great-great aunt. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The provocative drama by American playwright Rebecca Gilman revolves around students and administration at the fictional Belmont College who are forced to confront their feelings on racism when an African American student begins receiving racist hate mail. What they discover is not at all what they expected. Denise Villarreal stars as Sarah Daniels, the dean of students at the mostly white school, who struggles with her own prejudices as she attempts to navigate the controversy at Belmont. Ms. Villareal has participated both on and off stage in numerous productions for The Naples Players, most recently appearing in Legally Blonde: The Musical this past summer. Naples Players veteran Janina Birtolo (The Last Romance) plays the part of Dean Catherine Kenney. Juan Alejandro appears as Patrick Chibas, a sophomore who fights to find his place at a school that does not recognize what he considers his true ethnicity. Mr. Alejandro is a regular on the Southwest Florida theater scene, performing most recently at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers as Septimus Hodge in Arcadia and at the FGCU Theatre Lab in Depotic Twilight Zone and Bloody Poetry. Another veteran of the local stage, Marilyn Hilbert (Sunset Park and Love, Loss & What I Wore for The Marco Players), plays Mrs. Meyers. Making their debut with The Naples Players in Spinning Int o Butte r are Bill Richards as Burton Strauss, head of humanities at Belmont College; Derek Perry as college senior Greg Sullivan; and Paul Nicodemi as Ross Collins, a professor at the school. Anna Segreto directs. COURTESY PHOTO Bill Richards, Denise Villarreal, Paul Nicodemi and Janina Birtolo in a scene from Spinning Into Butter.

CELEBRITY EXTRA The Mortal Instruments show coming to TV BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: A while back you mentioned that ABC Family had picked up a series based on The Mortal Instruments books. Is this still happening? I havent heard any updates in a while. Pamela T., Wheeling, W. Va.A: ABC Family announced at New York Comic-Con in early October that its highly anticipated series Shadowhunters will premiere at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12. As you mentioned, the series is based on the bestselling young-adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. It follows 18-year-old Clary Fray (played by Katherine McNamara), who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of shadowhunters human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Q: I am so excited that The Walking Dead is back on AMC. I love the story, of course, but the special-effects makeup is awesome! Can you tell me who designed or created the zombie makeup? David D., via emailA: Greg Nicotero is the talented man behind those awesome effects. He got his professional start back in 1985, when he worked on Day of the Dead, and now has scores and scores of film special-effects makeup credit to his name. On The Walking Dead, he serves as co-executive producer, director and special makeup effects supervisor. He recently was in Orlando, Florida, for Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights 25, which runs through Nov. 1. Q: Is The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret ever coming back? Violet F., via emailA: IFC recently announced that the third season of its original comedy series The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret starring David Cross will premiere at 10 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 7, with the first three episodes of the six-episode series airing back to back. The remaining three episodes will premiere the following week at 10 p.m. Jan. 14. Says Jennifer Caserta, IFCs president: Since we last saw Todd Margaret (spoiler alert), which we thought was actually the last time wed see him, this show has become a favorite among comedy fans. Only David Cross could write his way around destroying the world to resurrect this character and story in a way thats mind-blowing and completely hilarious.

During the past few months weve provided readers with photo prompts, and theyve let their imaginations run, giving us stories inspired by the photos.

StuffBy George Mindling, Port CharlotteHe stooped over, a reaction he immediately countered by quickly straightening up and slowly looking around. Everyone was busy researching computer databases or involved in their scanners. No one paid attention to him. He stood on the staircase, confused by the diversity of the items carefully, almost lovingly, laid on the wooden steps that led up to the second floor. The items up there were being indexed by Oroms team. The two teams members did not interfere with each other as even the stair case had been politically divided into a lower half and an upper half. One of Oroms specialists, a female from the domestic anthropological research team, worked several meters above him. She glanced at him. He could see her eyes shimmering through the clear environmentally secure face mask, but they did not communicate. DonTel returned his attention to the items below him, His first scan had returned a positive on an item known as a Doll, laid a single increment above a vessel made of natural, woven material that ingeniously incorporated a carrying handle into its design. The contents of the basket confused him. They were obviously used to facilitate eating, but they were much smaller than the ones found earlier in the main food preparation area. InfoBase reported the items might be used for training the young, but they doubted the offspring used such an incomplete set of vessels as the actual utensils for nourishment. InfoBase had no idea how the white container next to it integrated into the scenario. The closest item in the data base was a fragile, oddly shaped device used to display flowers instead of containing a food stuff. That did not fit known parameters, especially since his diagnostic scan indicated the vessel was created roughly within the same time frame as

How did they select which food to eat and which ones to display, he mused. He once again focused on the doll, dressed quite differently from what the electronic media intercepts had led them to expect. The garment covering the doll held his stare. It was actually quite beautiful. A light glinted to his right, from above, on the staircase. The female above him slowly pointed to another basket laying on the step below her. The basket was bigger than the one with the miniature food serving vessels. His scanner displayed Sewing kit as he focused on the basket that was daringly not in his authority to index. He felt his metabolism increase. It was the first time he interacted with a female member of the investigation team since they had entered earth orbit. He simply hadnt had the opportunity. The preparation for the on-earth probe had been intense and no time was wasted on anything but the task at hand. He looked up at her and stared directly into her dark eyes. She turned away to again look down at the artifacts. Her ID tag was orangeorangegreen. He would look her up at the debriefing after they returned to the on-board laboratory. He scrolled through the data on the sewing kit. It was a collection of components used to manually assembly clothing. He had seen such items during his in-depth holographic training, but this was his first encounter with the real thing. The female of the human species actually manipulated their five-digit extensions on the end of each arm to fasten different pieces of fabric together with a continuous filament of some sort to adorn themselves, and, oh, for warmth, he remembered. He stared at the doll with new interest. Obviously, it didnt need to be kept warm, yet it was cloaked in one such manually assembled garment of shimmering blue. Cautiously he glanced around. His counterpart working above him again gave no sign of his presence, but she sl owly turned her head to watch as he sl owly stooped over and allowed his scanner to envelop the doll with its reddish force field. The doll was instantly recreated over three hundred kilometers away exactly as the scanner read it, atom by atom, molecule by molecule. His vision became intense and narrowly f ocused. He wanted more than to scan the doll; he wanted to touch it. He wanted to pick it up and hold it, an absolute disobeyal of orders! Under no circumstances were there to be any indication of their presence! Nothing was to be moved, or even touched. There would be no history, no clue to their visit. To disobey the order meant immediate removal from the exploration program. Nothing would be tolerated that would jeopardize the voyage. Betraying their presence on earth was a breach that could possibly end the entire visit, much less the data collection process. The rules didnt encompass his desire. He was so excited he was afraid his vital signs would flag him for security monitoring. He couldnt contain his emotions as he shut off the scanner and slowly ext ended his upper left extremity, hovering just beside the doll. He paused, and as soon as the scan field completely collapsed, slipped his multi-jointed appendage under the doll and slowly lifted it off the staircase. The dolls eyes mechanically opened as he tilted the doll toward him and from inside the fabric and ceramic creature a bellows collapsed and the doll said quite clearly, Ma ma. His analysis team responded immediately. Every probe team members visor filled with red alarm warnings and the emergency recall was initiated before DonTel could look up. Both entire teams of 20 were gone within seconds. Balanchine waited an hour before crawling out from behind the window curtains. She sat on the window sill anytime she wanted privacy from the humans who noisily dominated the house. She slowly cr ept to the edge of the stair case and laid down, tail twitching nervously. The strange energy was gone, except for a faint, strange odor that her owners would never detect. She cautiously sniffed the air and listened for any sound, her ears twitching and turning. The dog downstairs had slept through the entire probe, not even barking at the dolls unexpected call. Only a cat would know they were gone. Only a cat would know they were even there.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Black Forest Mill Restaurant, Green Tree Center, 2366 Immokalee Road, North Naples; 592-4784 For nicely prepared German food served in sane portions and at reasonable prices, its hard to beat Black Forest Mill. Wedged between Em-On Thai and the Naples Olive Oil Company, this homey little spot offers warm hospitality and authentic food prepared by Chef Arthur Stoerchle and his wife, Dale. Typically potatoes arent served as appetizers, but the potato pancakes here are and theyre well worth abandoning your diet for the evening. Crisp on the outside, tender inside and needing no enhancements, they are a real treat. We also liked the chicken pate and complimentary bowls of potato salad and cole slaw. Rahmschnitzel, a special on this evening, consisted of a fried pork cutlet topped with a light cream mushroom gravy. Served with spaetzle and red cabbage, this was a delicious dish. The sauerbraten was spot-on, slightly sweet and sour, perfect with a brown gravy and potato dumpling. Apfelkuchen with whipped cream was a great finish. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2014 Incas Kitchen, Pavilion Shopping Center, 8955 U.S. 41, North Naples; 6315954 The Peruvian food conjured up by chef/ owner Rafael Rottiers is so good no one minded traveling to Golden Gate for it, but now hes opened a stylish establishment in North Naples as well. The second Incas has an ambience similar to the original, with warm earth tones and Peruvian art. And the food is equally stellar. A Piscojito (made with Peruvian pisco liquor) goes well with any of the 11 varieties of ceviche and seven types of tiradito (a Peruvian style sashimi). The Mar y Tierra was a luscious blend of octopus, shrimp, aji limon (a Peruvian pepper), spices, tiger milk, crab, potato and corn. Sushi rolls one with tuna pepper and sesame oil, the other built around barbecued tenderloin were delicious, too. Mancora sea bass with quinoa, scallops, mussels and clams tasted as good as it looked. A 10-ounce tenderloin with spicy red sauce and tri-colored potatoes will satisfy any carnivore. And dont skip dessert; ask for whatever sweet features the caramel-flavored lucama fruit. Food: Service: Atmosphere Reviewed December 2014 Lapas Costa Rican Bistro, 26251 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 221-7016 Costa Rica means rich coast in Spanish; when it comes to the republics food, however, the adjectives that come to mind tend toward rustic, humble, uncomplicated. At Lapas in addition to the expected homespun empanadas, tacos and arroz con pollo youll find more ambitious creations such as citrus-laced ceviche, chile rellenos stuffed with sweet corn and meat and a few fish entrees with tropically themed sauces. The ceviche was strewn with onions, tomatoes and fresh cilantro, along with diced avocado, giving this dish great flavor and unexpected creamy texture. The Chirripo chicken was draped in a light, slightly sweet stew of tomatoes, corn and other vegetables. Similar to paella, the arroz con camarones contained a generous amount of large, succulent shellfish along with peas, corn and diced red peppers. With large portions and sides of mild black beans of creamy rice, Lapas makes certain you wont go home hungry. Beer and wine only. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2015 Rumba Cuban Cafe, 1265 AirportPulling Road, Naples; 659-2996. The former Fernandez the Bulls southerly location is in good hands with Chef Jorge Reyes, who used to work there, at the helm. His family infuses Rumba with the same warm, family flavor its predecessor had. And the foods still great, too. Skip the mojito (they dont have a liquor license and use orange wine) and go for the sangria instead. Rumba chips, long, crisp plantain strips served with nicely seasoned ground beef are good for a starter. The tamales were also tasty. Both the ropa vieja (shredded flank steak with tomato sauce) and lechon asado (big marinated and roasted chunks of pork) were excellent with sides of plantains, white rice and black beans. For dessert? You cant go wrong with flan or tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2015 Trattoria Abruzzo, Pavilion Shopping Center, 835 Vanderbilt Beach Road, North Naples; 596-8010The Laccetti family has developed a loyal following even though this restaurant sits well back from the street on the Vanderbilt Beach Road side of the Pavilion Shopping Center. Youll find some surprises on the menu, like the calamari Adriatico, squid sauted with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and cherry tomatoes, and house-made agnolotti nonno Paolo, large tender half-moons of ravioli stuffed with Parmigiano and fontina cheese topped with porcini mushrooms and a hint of truffle oil. Snapper Livornese consisted of a goodsized fillet topped with kalamatas, capers and anchovies in a light marinara sauce and the pollo ortolona was an impressive plate of boneless chicken breast with shiitake mushrooms, herbs, garlic and demi-glace with grand-reserve balsamic and a load of fresh arugula. We finished with a lemon tart just as a singer began serenading the crowd with Italian classics. Service was friendly, but the timing of courses needed polish. Beer and wine served.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 22-28, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 CUISINECasino ups its culinary game with Lucky Mi Noodle HouseI recently had occasion to spend an evening at the Seminole Casino in Immokalee. The last time I was there at least 15 years ago it resembled a tired bingo parlor and what little food there was wasnt worth eating. Things have changed dramatically in the intervening years. The casino has been enlarged and enhanced, theres an adjoining hotel and it now boasts four dining options: the 24/7 Ee-to-Leet-Ke Grill, 1st St. Deli, Cappuccinos and Lucky Mi Noodle House. It seems odd, though intriguing, that this bastion of slots, craps and poker holds a kosher-style deli that serves potato pancakes, matzoh ball soup and corned beef sandwiches, among other classics. That theres an Asian establishment offering nicely executed food seems even odder to me. Nonetheless, its true. Even if you arent a gambler, Id wager youd enjoy a meal at this little spot tucked into the side of the gaming rooms. A smiling Buddha statue greets Lucky Mi diners as they walk from the sprawling, smoky gaming floor filled with slot machines. In this serene space, the dcor is spare, modern and tasteful, with bright red lights dangling from the ceiling and an open kitchen, where the chefs conjure up dishes representing Japan, Thailand, China, Vietnam and Korea. Customers either sit at the counter or at long wooden tables, which makes it likely that you will end up chatting with strangers sometime during your meal. Spring and summer rolls, noodle and rice dishes, even Hong Kong duck and Korean bulgogi can be had here, with no dish priced higher than $20 and most closer to $15. Service is warm and welcoming and somewhat speedy no doubt intentional so that gamers can get back to the activities that brought them there in the first place. For starters, we tried spring and summer rolls. The teriyaki chicken summer rolls ($8) contained avocado, tropical fruit, vegetables and rice noodles served with hoisin-sweet chili sauce. The ingredients blended well inside the tender wrapping, but the rolls had clearly been made earlier and refrigerated. They arrived at the table chilled, which muted the flavors and made them a little tough. The vegetable spring rolls ($8), on the other hand, were piping hot and flavorful, the crisp wrapping containing glass noodles, carrots and mushrooms accompanied by a tangy sweet chili sauce. The entrees were uniformly tasty, starting with spicy vegetables and rice ribbon noodles ($12), which began with a bowl full of warm noodles topped with chilled sweet peppers, green papaya and herbs in a spicy sauce. This dish looked lovely with its rainbow of colors and contained plenty of flavor and diverse textures that worked well together. Pad Thai ($16) also started with noodles into which were woven chicken and shrimp, vegetables, egg, cashews, cilantro and a touch of tamarind, giving it that intoxicating blend of sweet and tangy, crisp and soft that makes pad Thai such a popular dish. The bulgogi ($20) was good as well, with well-marinated, tender beef accompanied by spicy kimchee, lettuce leaves and an assortment of other side dishes that complemented the savory meat well. Desserts are limited to ice cream or sorbet, which we skipped, as the dishes were good sized and we were full. In no time at all, we were properly full, re-energized and ready to face the slot machines again. The outcome of your time on the gaming floor might be uncertain, but its a sure bet you will feel fortunate for having dined at Lucky Mi. Spring rolls are crisp and flavorful, containing vegetables and glass noodles. A bowl of spicy vegetables and noodles offers a taste of Korean fare.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDASPECIAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY OCTOBER 22-28, 2015As 73 Phase I residences and the 3rd Avenue South str eetscape that will bisect the community draw ever closer to completion, the impact The Ronto Groups Naples Square development will have on downtown Naples is becoming increasingly evident. Ronto is developing Naples Square at 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road. An eclectic mixture of Bermuda, British West Indies, and Coastal Contemporary architectural styles created by Matthew Kragh, AIA, owner of MHK Architecture & Planning, will bring a timeless flavor to Naples Square. Kraghs site plan ties Naples Square into the fabric of the Old Naples street grid system and into current and future plans of the Naples Pathway Committee and the City of Naples. Pavered streetscapes and sidewalks within the community will embrace and transform existing city streets to create a cohesiveness that will unite every element of downtown by connecting 5th Avenue South to Bayfront with access on 10th Street via 3rd Avenue South. Vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic will flow from 10th Street to Bayfront on a redesigned segment of 3rd Avenue South between 10th and Goodlette-Frank Road within Naples Square. Naples Squares residents, visitors, and residents elsewhere in Old Naples will enjoy more immediate access to shopping, dining, and entertainment venues throughout the entire downtown district from Bayfront west to the beach. At the same time, Kragh and MHK Architectural Project Manager Erik Young have created a visually appealing design that maintains the integrity of the residential units view corridors. Naples Squares u-shaped residential buildings will be situated with their open ends facing one another. The juxtaposition of the buildings allowed Kragh to create amenity courtyards over each buildings parking level and to design residences with long-range internal courtyard views. The courtyard amenity decks feature a resortstyle heated swimming pool and spa, sundeck, pavilion bar with gas grills, and a gas fire table with seating. Each building will have its own pool and club room and there will be two fitness centers. The majority of Naples Squares residences have views of the communitys internal amenity courtyards, fountain features, and landscaped streetscapes designed by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, Inc. Andreas amenity deck landscape design incorporates green spaces, Asian Jasmine ground cover, raised-planters with date palms, and arbors with vine plantings to create a garden-like effect. Additional planters provide a colorful note of separation between the terraces of the garden level residences and the edges of the plaza. Andreas design will bring a park-like ambiance to Naples Square. The design merges pavered roadways, entry water features, and fountain roundabouts with Washingtonia and Medjool Date palm trees and a mix of plantings. Oak trees will create a canopy to provide shade and further soften the building mass. Plantings will include Clusia, Variegated Dwarf Schefflera, and Bougainvillea. Asian Jasmine, a carpet-like ground cover, will be used in the pedestrian areas. Naples Squares intersections, crossings, and building entries will be identified by palms. Building corners adjacent to the communitys signature roundabouts will be softened by scattered height Washingtonia palms. The visual impact and shade created by Andreas design will create a welcoming feeling. Naples Squares streetscapes will be lined with soaring palms interspersed with flower beds, strips of green, and landscaped areas separating the sidewalks and buildings. The fountains at each of the roundabouts will provide soothing white noise and have a cooling effect. The design will evoke feelings of comfortable familiarity and a sense of place that is rarely found when walking or biking through typical downtown building corridors. Naples Squares residents, pedestrians, and bicyclists who take advantage of the connectivity 3rd Avenue South affords will enjoy the convenience of a separate commercial component fronting Goodlette-Frank Road to the east of Naples Squares residential buildings. A green space will separate the residential and commercial components. The separation will contribute to Naples Squares sense of place that belies its location less than a five-minute walk from downtowns most popular attractions. Naples Squares landscape design will play a major role in furthering efforts to transform GoodletteFrank Road into a corridor lined with greenways and pathways for cyclists and pedestrians. A dedicated public access linear park easement will stretch along the entire eastern edge of the Naples Square site and front Goodlette-Frank Road. The linear park will contribute to Naples Squares grand sense of entry and reinforce the communitys lifestyle that is focused on walkability and the freedom to enjoy walking and bicycling in the heart of downtown Naples.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYD4 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF OCTOBER 22-28, 2015 Construction begins on Kalea Bay high-riseConstruction has begun on the first of five residential highrises planned for Kalea Bay, a gated, resort-style community being developed by Soave Real Estate on Vanderbilt Drive, north of Wiggins Pass Road, in North Naples. Its been a long time since construction began on a major residential highrise building in Southwest Florida. Eight years to be exact. But with Kalea Bay thats all changed as construction cranes, cement trucks and other pieces of heavy-duty equipment are onsite and along with the construction crews working hard to make history. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, has 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. According to Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing, sales have been phenomenal. Not only have we had tremendous initial interest on the project, but we have exceeded our sales projections for the summer, she said. Due to our sales velocity, we recently started vertical construction on the first tower, Wilson added. By late October, our future residents and passers-by will be able to see evidence of our first floor. Because were gearing up for the start of construction on our clubhouse and related amenities, theyll be able to enjoy it all upon move in. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,280 square feet under air and 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5 are three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half bath plans with 3,280 square feet under air and 3,835 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,280 square feet under air and 3,921 total square feet. With 20 stories of living available at Kalea Bay and the areas first roof-top pool and amenity center, residents will revel in spectacular gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into the condominium, nine-foot high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens feature Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and counter-height oversized island. The master bedroom has an oversized walk-in closet and the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, Downsview luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Additional features include floor-toceiling windows and doors, high-tech wiring, fully-equipped laundry rooms and wide lanais with transparent glass rails. Residents, no matter which floor they choose, will be able to enjoy views of the Gulf of Mexico and nature preserve, stated Wilson. Thats because the buildings amenities are located on the roof. They include a fitness center, sky lounge and incredible rooftop pool. The residents and their guests will have quite a view from the towers roof. Not only will they see the Gulf of Mexico, but two of the best beaches in the country. They include, Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which is ranked #9. The first residential tower is scheduled to be completed in Summer 2017. Although every future resident is looking forward to moving into their new home, one in particular just might be more excited then the rest. That future resident is John Lodge, a legendary member of The Moody Blues. I have two very good reasons for buying a home in the Naples area, explained Lodge. My son and grandson live here. Lodge went on to say he found himself spending more and more time in Southwest Florida and it just made sense to find a place to hang his hat and his bass guitar. The best aspects of Naples, besides golf, are the sunsets and weather, said Lodge. My wife Kirsten and I really wanted a place where we could sit and enjoy the setting sun on a nightly basis. The views of the Gulf from Kalea Bay are incredible and we love the fact the tower has a rooftop pool. Lodge has another connection to the Naples area one he is very proud of. Although recorded at various locations, Lodges new solo album, 0,000 Light Years Ago, only his second solo album of his career, was completed at The Mix Factory in Naples. It was the first time Lodge worked from a studio in the Sunshine State. Lodge concluded, Kirsten and I are excited to start spending more time in the Naples area in the future. But for the meantime, Im excited to share my album with my fans and continue touring with The Moody Blues. In addition to the first towers rooftop amenities, Kalea Bay will also have a first-class clubhouse area which surely will be the recreational and social center of the community. The main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, said Wilson. It will include a clubhouse with three individual pools, a pool deck bar, an indoor/ outdoor restaurant, a snack bar and an Internet cafe. But thats not all. Nearby will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted tennis courts and 24 guest suites. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse area, to a designated Gulf beach.

The kitchen features exclusive Veneta Cucine custom, Italian cabinetry with a Rovere Grigio finish. The kitchen is further enhanced by Fantasy Brown Granite with a leather finish and a Matte white beveled subway tile backsplash. Among the many design options featured in the Santorini are an enhanced master bath, wrapped lanai area, optional tray ceilings in the master suite and great room, and doors that open the great room to the sprawling outdoor living area.
