The best blues singers in the world are immigrants because theyve had to leave home and they arent coming back. In that sense, most of us are immigrants. Rich people dont usually sing the blues, or have to. Powerful people dont usually sing the blues, nor can they. People who have never been haunted, persecuted, misunderstood by those who purport to love them, fired, ridiculed, heartbroken, bullied and beaten or outcast for one reason or another dont usually sing the blues and dont understand why anybody else should, either. And sometimes even those who should sing the blues dont; theyre too lost. Too busy clinging grimly by their fingernails to the cliff-edge of existence to croak out a tune or remember the words. For them this week, therefore all of them and you, too let me present some ready-made, ink-on-the-page, south Florida blues for modern times. Carry these words with you. Use them as needed. Suffer as warranted, too its a proud, die-hard tradition, after all without giving up. An donchu never give up. Cold coffee blues1. Im goin back down to the corner bucks, Goin back down one day; I aint had sugar and I aint had cream And I got nowhere to lay. 2. My coffees two years old and cold So Im goin downtown to the bucks; I cant drink it cause its growin mold, And I got nowhere to lay. 3. Im goin back down to the corner bucks, Goin back down one day; I aint had sugar and I aint had cream And I got nowhere to lay.Facebook baby blues1. My baby done left me, Lord, hes gone, He left me late last night; With two middle fingers and a grinnin meme He kicked me clean outasight. 2. I checked his drawers, aint nothin there, And then I checked his phone; O Lord I saw him lost in space, He joined them Facebook drones. 3. So baby come love me, whoever you are And sign your love in blood; Gime kisses with lips and words with breath, Dont want no Facebook stud.The Houston, Texas Blues1. Im goin back down to the Lone-Star State Gonna find my baby down there; Gonna givem a hug and that lovin jug Gonna drink in a rockin chair. 2. Gonna sit myself on the driest porch And watch the Pres-i-dent pass; But there aint no hugs and there aint no jugs For a fool with that fat an ass. 3. Im goin back down to the Lone-Star State, Lord, theres a flood down there; Givem all a hug and that lovin jug Gonna drink in a rockin chair.Wild Bill Belvin Blues1. Wonchu take me back to the 1930s, Baby take me back for a while; Gonna drink my fill of shine from shell, Gonna see Bill Belvin smile. 2. His baby done left him, his mule too, The sheriff hard on his trail; So he slipped away in the swamp one day Where they never take the mail. 3. Please take me back to the 1930s, To the mornin Billy walked out, Grinnin and bright, a year outasight, No coin, no blues and no doubt. Wild Bill Belvin gained local and national attention in 1930 by spending a year in the wild of what is now Cape Coral, armed with only two modern conveniences, his spectacles and his false teeth. The stunt was the brainchild of an editor for the Tropical News of Fort Myers, according to several historical sources, as a way to promote Southwest Florida as an easy place to live.

The deluge created cataclysmic flooding, the kind of rainfall that can drown thousands of square miles. It was spawned by a lethargic hurricane, suspended for several days over one vast region. No one in living memory has seen or experienced anything like it, surely not in the history of Texas except we have. Before Hurricane Harvey pummeled southwest Texas and the Houston metro area with torrential rains, there were its predecessors Hurricane Andrew (1992), Hurricane Katrina (2010), Superstorm Sandy (2013) and the thousand-year rainfall inundating South Carolina (2015) from its coast to its midlands with more than 25 inches of rain. These catastrophic events were all fed by a deep well of tropical moisture flowing across a rising ocean, bleeding from coast to mainland, nudged along by a weather system of hurricane proportions, sucking energy from warm seas. Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 storm, hit South Florida, destroying more than 63,500 homes, damaging 124,000 more and causing $26.5 billion in damages. Sixty-five people died. And who doesnt remember Category 5 Hurricane Katrina? It made landfall in southeastern Louisiana. New Orleans took it on the chin. Floodwaters engulfed the city, destroying its schools and four out of five of its homes. The levees and flood control systems failed that the Army Corps of Engineers built and maintained. The death toll was estimated at 1,836, primarily in Louisiana (1,577) and Mississippi (238.) More than half who died were elderly. The thousand-year rainfall in South Carolina mirrored in one state what multiple states suffered as Hurricane Sandy strafed the nations northeast coastline. It was a Category 2 storm and the largest hurricane system ever recorded in the Atlantic. It was second only to Katrina in the billions of dollars in damages done. An estimated 233 people died. Few who witnessed or experienced these devastating storms have forgotten the human misery and destruction left in their wake. We are seeing it again, this time on the Texas Gulf Coast and in Houston. As I write, Harvey is recoiling from its glacial drift to the warm waters of the gulf, moving in a northeasterly direction toward the Pelican State. Its been just a year since Louisiana took its last beating. A stalled front dumped over two feet of rain in the central part of the state. Residents are still mopping up. Another onslaught is on the way of torrential rain. These disasters leave behind broken and reeling communities. Recovery will take years. Flooding is pernicious, an evasive and cancerous spoil leaving nothing in its path unscathed. The toxic bile lays waste to houses, businesses, financial institutions and civic infrastructure. Transportation, water, sewer, and electrical systems implode. The wave of destruction suffocates the life communities once knew. People die. But hope survives. Neighbors help neighbors. Thousands of volunteers arrive to help. Things will change. People will recover. But they will never be the same again. In an article by The Washington Post, Brock Long, the current director of the Federal Emergency Management Assistance, and his predecessor, William Fugate, both agreed the present state of the nations disaster readiness is inadequate. Long said, Americans tend to get complacent about the possibility of a disasterwe have a long way to go. Fugate was unsparing. He said it sucks. They could be talking about Florida. Floridas coastal cities Miami and the St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay area, for example are extremely vulnerable to catastrophic storms. The state has 1,350 miles of coastline and 2.4 million people and 1.3 million homes planted within 4 feet of the local high tide line. Sea level rise is more than doubling the risk of a storm surge at this level in South Florida by 2030, Climate Central reports. Most coastal residents have no clue about the potential risks of flooding and storm surges, which account for most hurricane-related deaths. The states lack of preparedness extends all the way to Tallahassee. Gov. Rick Scott and the states conservative majority refuse to acknowledge Floridas vulnerability to a catastrophic event like Hurricane Harvey. They ignore and are in denial about the threats climate change and sea level rise pose for the state. They do so at our peril. Climate change and sea level rise played a role in intensifying Harvey and extending its awful duration. Texas officials considered the terrible what-ifs associated with Houston taking a major hit from a hurricane. It had barely escaped devastation from past hurricanes equally as dangerous as Harvey, saved only by the whim of nature. Its vulnerability to catastrophic flooding from a perfect storm was hidden in plain sight. A plan of preparedness did not anticipate in advance the future certainty of a hurricane-driven disaster. Florida faces the same inevitability of a perfect storm. We have been given ample warning. It is not a matter of if but when. Think Houston cant happen here? Think again.

( h C m S c leslieLILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com Stop making excuses for antifa thuggeryOne of the least safe places to be in Berkeley, Calif., is in the vicinity of someone holding a No Hate sign. So-called anti-fascist, or antifa, activists bearing shields emblazoned with those words assaulted any of the handful of beleaguered Trump supporters they could get their hands on at a small political rally over the weekend. All in the cause, mind you, of demonstrating their supposed opposition to hatefulness. Too many people were willing to perfume antifa in the wake of Charlottesville, where it clashed with Nazi thugs who caused, and deserved, a wave of national revulsion. But Berkeley demonstrates once again the true nature of this left-wing movement, which is thuggish in its tactics and totalitarian in its sensibility. Anyone who at this point makes excuses for antifa or worse, justifies it is participating in its moral rot. The antifa goons showed up in force at Berkeley at what had been a small antiMarxist rally of Trump supporters at a public park. Antifa wore its usual fascistic garb of black masks and body armor. They overwhelmed the police who had been trying to maintain order and, holding aloft smoke-spewing flares, chanted, Whose park? Our park! They then treated suspected Trump supporters with all the decorousness of torch-wielding medieval villagers who believed they had stumbled upon a witch. A leader of a pro-Trump group had to run from a mob that pepper-sprayed and beat him, until he was taken into police custody for his own protection. The targets werent Nazis bearing Nazi regalia, but supporters of the duly elected president of the United States. Antifa benefited enormously from the horrific events in Charlottesville. It became Nazis versus the people standing up to the Nazis, and in that formulation the people standing up to the Nazis always win. There can be no moral equivalence, we were told, between Nazis and their opponents. But that depends on who the opponents are there is a vast difference between peaceful counter protesters and violent thugs, even if they are marching on the same side. Bullyboy fascists spoiling for a fight and black-clad leftists looking to beat them up exist on the same moral plane. They both thrill to violence and benefit from the attention that comes from it. They both reject civility and the rule of law that make a democratic society possible. They both are profoundly illiberal. All this was lost in the reaction to Charlottesville. Liberal commentators spread memes comparing antifa to American GIs who stormed the beaches at Normandy. The comparison would be apt if the 1st Infantry Division got together to spend an afternoon beating up fellow Americans rather than giving its last measure of devotion to breaching Hitlers Atlantic Wall. There will always be goons who enjoy breaking things and hurting people. The real scandal is that otherwise respectable people are willing to look the other way or explain away the violence, so long as its perpetrators are on their side. They are just as cowardly as the mask-wearing antifa thugs who are brave enough to punch and kick people, but not to show their faces. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

Nationally and globally, these observations provide opportunities to raise awareness that suicide is a major preventable cause of premature death. 2016 statistics are revealing. According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, nearly 43,000 Americans die by suicide every year, and suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., with one happening every 12.3 minutes. The AFSP also reports 90 percent of those who die by suicide had a diagnosable psychiatric disorder at the time of their death, and veterans comprise 22.2 pecent of suicides. Statistics become instantaneously real for those who lose a loved one to suicide. Our family was rocked to its knees when we lost our youngest adult son to suicide in 2012. We experienced firsthand the double whammy of taboo and stigma that shrouds mental illness and suicide. Mental illness is an invisible reality that one out of four people live with every day, so September is the right time to shine a bright light on a topic that is hiding in plain sight. In 2014, I partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Collier County and launched the Surviving Suicide and Sudden Loss Project to build on NAMIs mission: To improve the quality of life of persons affected by serious mental illness and their caregivers through support, education and advocacy. Over the past three years Ive presented locally and nationally, meeting many inspiring individuals, families and organizations who are giving mental illness a life-affirming voice. Working with very limited financial and human resources, such organizations are also helping families impacted by suicide loss. Sadly, the numbers are rising, in part due to untreated mental conditions of our aging seniors, veterans, both young and old, and opioid abusers. Ironically, the national opioid epidemic has been a double-edged sword. The sheer magnitude of overdoses and deaths has forced community leaders, health and medical practitioners and legislators to start addressing the underlying causes that, in many cases, involve physical and mental illness coupled with overmedicating and addiction. Formerly stereotyped as an affliction of low-lifes, opioid abuse now impacts urban, suburban and rural communities across all social and socioeconomic groups. The media is spotlighting the enormous human and financial toll of mental illness on patients, families, communities and society. This is helping to peel away the stigma, revealing helpful mental health resources and programs coupled with compassion and hope. As stigma erodes, maybe those who resist treatment for serious mental illness, like our son, will be encouraged to embrace it. Rather than a sprayand-pray approach, we need coordinated efforts at the local, state and federal levels. Here in Collier County, we are seeing more coordination among county commissioners, local hospitals, mental health professionals, public safety officials, law enforcement and first responders, the courts, public schools, churches and places such as NAMI, the David Lawrence Center, Hazelden Betty Ford and the Naples Children and Education Foundation, to name a few. But more needs to be done. One of the first items cut from most federal and state health care legislation is funding for mental health programs and services. Florida ranks 49th out of 50 on a per capita basis. To be truly effective, programs and services need to be available, accessible and affordable for children, teens, adults and caregivers. And programs must provide more than crisis intervention. This requires human and financial resources. Loved ones who are involuntarily committed to a psychiatric facility for a maximum three-day evaluation (under Floridas Baker Act) are too often released without the assurance of continuity of care i.e. there is no clear plan for on-going treatment or instructions on prescribed psychotropic medications. This just perpetuates false hope and further isolates patients and families. Its counterproductive to keeping our communities safer and welcoming for those living with mental illness as well as those who arent. At NAMI of Collier County, we seek to help our members and their families reach their full potential, living well and staying well as they proactively manage their mental illness. All services and programs are provided at no cost. For more information, call NAMI at 2607300 or visit www.namicollier.org.

Create a checklist of items you will want to take with you if you have to leave. Take before pictures of your home for insurance purposes. Find out the elevation of your home. Make sure your street address is clearly marked on your home. Hurricane conditions are possible within the next 48 hours. Clear your yard of potential ying debris, including lawn furniture, toys, etc. Lower the water level in the swimming pool by one foot. Board up windows.Gas up the car. Check your oil and tire pressure. Get cash. ATMs and banks may not be open after a storm. Turn the refrigerator to the coldest setting. Store plenty of water. Hurricane conditions are possible within the next 36 hours. Gather important documents. Finish shuttering doors and windows. Evacuate if you are ordered to do so. If youre staying home, designate a safe room. Interior bathrooms or closets on the lowest level with no windows work best. Charge cell phones and other devices.Stay indoors. Stay away from windows even if theyre shuttered. Listen to media reports for the latest information. Stay inside even if it appears calm. Do not go out until the all-clear is given. The longest part of the process, recovery can take weeks. Move slowly and cautiously as you survey and clean up. Most injuries take place after the storm. Do not use public water until you are noti ed that it is safe. Avoid travel if possible. Do not connect generators to house wiring. Beware of downed power lines, wild animals and even domestic animals that may be frightened or lost. Take pictures of damage and contact your insurance agent. When formulating a hurricane plan, make sure it includes all members of the family, including pets. After so many animals were abandoned following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Hurricane Charley in Southwest Florida, disaster preparedness officials have stepped up measures to help pets and to encourage owners to plan ahead in case a hurricane strikes. Charlotte, Collier, Lee and Palm Beach counties all have emergency shelters for people and their pets, although space and therefore, access is largely restricted to those in spots where evacuation is mandatory. Most counties offer just one shelter to take in pets, so its important that pet owners check early and get on a reservation list if that is required. If people find they need to go to a county-run pet shelter, they will be required to stay as well and will need to care for their pets throughout the stay. Animals must be current on immunizations and have sufficient food, water and an approved crate. The best option is for people to leave the area and take their pets with them. Dont expect local veterinarians or boarding kennels to accept animals. They will fall under the same guidelines and conditions as residents. And, should a hurricane strike, they are likely to be without power as well. To prepare their pets for hurricane season, owners should attend to the following: Vaccinations: Make sure pets are current on these now. It takes a couple of weeks for most immunizations to become protective so its too late once a storm approaches. Identification: Put pets county licensing tags on their collars, as well as an ID tag with your phone number. Make sure your address and phone number is current on ID tags. A microchip ID (available through most veterinarians as well as Animal Services), is highly recommended because collars can be lost during storms but the chip will remain implanted and owners can update the company as to their whereabouts. Hurricane kit: Gather up pet supplies. (See accompanying segment) Medications: Make sure you keep a few weeks worth on hand so you wont have to rush to refill them at the last minute. Destination: Secure a place to stay.Pet hurricane kit Leash and secure collar Pet food (in waterproof containers), enough for at least one week Water for one week Manual can opener Bowls for food and water Impact-resistant crate of sufficient size (no soft-sided or homemade models and one for each pet) Bedding (blanket or towels) Litter, litter box and scoop for cats Pets regular medications Toys, chewies and other stress relievers County license and other identification (microchip IDs are encouraged) Proof of vaccinations Photo of pet Pet first-aid kit Grooming items Websites Leelostpets.com: The Lee County Domestic Animal Services site has a section dedicated to storm preparedness for pets.

Segregating debris is critical in assisting in the recovery. To help ensure that debris is collected in the most efficient, safe and timely manner, we recommend that you follow these simple guidelines when clearing debris from your residential property after the storm. Businesses are required to make separate arrangements for debris clean-up.Normal household garbage These are the materials and perishable items that would be placed out for collection in your weekly trash container. Normal household recyclables are dened as materials which are capable of being recycled, including newspapers, cardboard, plastic containers labeled Nos. 1 through 7 and containers made of glass, steel and aluminum. The following are not considered normal household garbage: Yard debris or trash Vegetative matter including shrubs, palm fronds, tree trimmings, grass clippings, bushes, leaves, twigs or cut up tree branches. Construction/demolition debris Materials directly relating to construction or demolition of buildings, such as cement, glass, drywall, insulation, concrete block, etc. White goods Large discarded appliances, including refrigerators, ranges, washing machines, clothes dryers, water heaters, freezers, microwave ovens, and air conditioners. All items must be empty of all contents. Do not mix the types of debris There will be separate collections for each and they will be picked up according to priority in the immediate aftermath of the storm. First priority Normal Household Garbage. Place in your regular collection cart container or in heavy duty plastic bags, and place where you would normally locate it for your regular weekly collection. Second priority Yard debris. Small quantities should be prepared as for weekly collection; in containers, bags or bundles of less than 50 pounds. Large quantities of storm related yard debris should be placed alongside the curb, with trees and branches prepared into easily manageable lengths. Do not place near lowhanging objects or around mailboxes, water meters or re hydrants. Large quantities of storm-related yard debris may be collected using a mechanical grab that will require room to operate. Collection crews will not enter private property to collect debris. Only yard debris directly generated from the storm event will be collected. Land clearing and landscape improvements are not eligible for collection. Debris from these activities will require removal and disposal to be arranged by the property owner at their expense. There will be no collection of large quantities of yard debris on private roads or in gated communities unless properties in these locations are included in a FEMA declaration or where an immediate threat to health and safety exists. Third priority Construction debris, recyclables, white goods, bulk items, electronic equipment, tires and lead acid bat-teries. You will be notified through media when collection of these items will take place. Disposal rules for small quantities of C&D materials vary by location so look for media notices for specic guidance as to how best to dispose of these materials in your respective areas. In many areas, small quantities of C&D materials (less than 2 cubic yards) may be placed at the curb alongside of normal household garbage. These materials would generally be in containers and/or bundled, weighing less than 50 pounds each and not exceeding six feet in length. These materials may be collected with the normal household garbage provided that the materials are compliant with your local collection policies and ordinances. Refrigerators, freezers and other appliances must be emptied of all contents prior to collection. Refrigerators and or freezers containing food waste or other rotting wastes will not be collected. Storm debrisAs the storm approaches and in the immediate aftermath, look for notices in the local newspapers, special bulletins on your local government website, local radio and television channels and other media. During the first 72 hours after the storm has passed, FEMA, Solid Waste Management and the Sheriffs Office will be assessing the damage and road conditions to determine when collections can resume. Recovery after the stormAfter major storms, lives can change drastically and disasters affect everyone to some extent. Relief supplies and other aid will be arriving as quickly as possible, but it may take several days. Try to remain calm, patient and understanding. Your attitude affects you and everyone around you. Remember that the longest and hardest part of dealing with a hurricane is the recovery. There may be residual flooding and roads may be blocked for days or weeks, making damaged areas inaccessible. This may mean that you will not be allowed back to your home for days or weeks. Emergency workers want your return home to be as safe as possible and need time to clear safe access and secure hazards. Listen to local media for reentry information and do not go into unsafe areas. Drive only if absolutely necessary and avoid flooded roads and washed out bridges. Do not go sightseeing. If you evacuated out of the area, consider staying away for a few extra days. Before you decide to return, consider the following: Power will be out for an undetermined period of time. This means no air conditioning, no lights, no refrigeration, no water pump and in many cases no stove. Telephone service will be out or limited. This includes 911 calling. Lack of power and damaged facilities will affect both landline telephones and cellular telephone service. Even if your phone works, use it only for emergencies. Municipal water supplies may be unsafe to drink without boiling or chemical treatment. Treat all water as unsafe until you are notified that it is safe. Prepare an all-hazards supply kit Having a basic survival kit ready to sustain yourself and your family after an emergency is an essential part of preparation. Think first about basic survival needs: fresh water, food, clean air and warmth. Emergency responders may not be able to get to you immediately after a disaster. Being prepared means choosing to be a hurricane survivor. Start by reviewing the lists below. Food needs Drinking water: 1 gallon per person per day; 3to 7-day supply Non-perishable food that meets your dietary requirements: 3to 7-day supply Manual can opener or poptop cans/containers and eating utensils Juice/soft drinks/instant coffee or tea Plastic wrap/zip-top bags/garbage bags Paper plates, cups, aluminum foil Cooler for food storage and ice Lighter/matches, pots/pans Camp stove or grill Personal items Sleeping bags, pillows, blankets Lawn chairs, folding chairs, cots Personal hygiene items Prescriptions and over the counter medications Spare glasses, contacts Extra hearing aid batteries Baby/infant needs, such as diapers, formula, extra clothes and more Rain gear Closed-toe work shoes, no sandalsPets and service animals Water 1 gallon per day for each animal; 7-day supply Cage or carrier for each animal Food and treats Toys and comfort items Cleaning supplies Immunization records, photosBasic safety equipment Battery or hand-crank radio Chargers, batteries, etc., for smart phones and tablets Flashlights Extra batteries Light sticks to replace candlesMiscellaneous items Spare keys Important papers ID, including drivers license, insurance cards, etc. Cash, credit cards, coins, checksMedical equipment Medical equipment and assistive devices First aid kit Medical alert tags or bracelets to identify your disability-related need. Agencies and organizations offer emergency helpHindsight is always a dishonest voice for the present. Storms on the west coast have been few since Hurricane Wilma during the 2005 season the last major hurricane to affect the Charlotte County area. But no one wants to walk down the street and see fallen trees and power lines scattered along the road, and wonder what to do next. Yet, this scenario is a reality we should prepare for during every hurricane season. Floridians know from experience that neighbors, churches and local businesses come together in unprecedented ways to help with recovery efforts. Nevertheless, weve compiled some of the contact information for the big organizations that can serve as a starting place for either volunteerism or for your own recovery once the weather system has passed. From reporting downed power lines to who to call about clean water, canned food and local shelters, these accredited contacts will help with your questions and needs.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Walmart grant will help fund mobile pantriesThe Harry Chapin Food Bank has received $42,000 from the Walmart Foundation to help fund mobile pantries in the five-county area the food bank serves: Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry. The grant to the food bank is one of 17 grants made to Florida nonprofits totaling more than $940,000. Walmart is uniquely positioned to help fight hunger here in Florida and create a long-lasting, positive impact in communities across the state, said Monesia Brown, chair of Walmarts State Giving Program Council. Supporting local hunger-relief programs is one way in which we are doing just that, helping Florida children and families have access to nutritious food. Mobile pantries are one of the most efficient ways for the Harry Chapin Food Bank to distribute fresh, nutritious food directly to clients, many of whom do not have access to grocery stores due to location or lack of transportation. Mobile pantries are an important part of our strategy to end hunger, especially in outlying areas, said Richard LeBer, president and CEO of the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Walmart is a great partner, and we are very grateful for their generous support for this program. Each mobile pantry distribution can serve up to 250 households. Clients receive an average of 30-40 pounds of food. During the last fiscal year, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 1,018,281 pounds of food through 204 mobile pantries. Every dollar donated to the Harry Chapin Food Bank translates to $8 in food value. In fiscal year 2015-16, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 20.6 million pounds of food and other grocery items, including 6.4 million pounds of fresh produce. The food, valued at $34 million, is the equivalent of 17 million meals for people in need. The Harry Chapin Food Bank is recognized as a four-star organization by Charity Navigator, the national nonprofit watchdog organization. The food bank is also a United Way partner agency. For more information or to make a donation, call 3347007 or visit www.harrychapinfoodbank.org. Take action against hunger in September SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYMaurice Bonec utter, 91, wont need a reminder that September is Hunger Action Month nationwide or that Thursday, Sept. 14, is Hunger Action Day. The long-time volunteer for the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida already works in the warehouse at the food banks Fort Myers distribution center on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Hunger Action Month is important, Mr. Bonecutter s aid. Its the bread of life, and we all need to be provided for. Mr. Bonecutter has been helping the food bank provide for others since 2011. When asked why he volunteers, he replied: Why not? he replied. Wise words from a wise man. Hunger Action Month was started 10 years ago by the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, including the Harry Chapin Food Bank. The goal is to raise hunger awareness and mobilize people to take action to fight hunger in their communities. Hunger Action Day, Thursday, Sept. 14, is the focal point of Hunger Action Month. In the five-county area the Harry Chapin Food Bank serves, nearly 160,000 people are food insecure. That includes about 50,000 children. In addition, about two-thirds of public school children are eligible for or receive free or reduced-priced meals from their school because of their families low income. One in seven residents of Southwest Florida will go hungry this year, said Richard LeBer, food bank president and CEO. The Harry Chapin Food Bank provided more than 22 million pounds of food to feed them last year, thanks to the generosity of our friends and neighbors, he added. Hunger Action Month is when we call everyones attention to this issue. We hope it will build awareness and mobilize action to help us end hunger. Volunteering in the food banks warehouse or at a food bank mobile pantry is only one way members of the community can help during Hunger Action Month. The Harry Chapin Food Bank has a web page that features a daily calendar of other easy-to-do ways to raise awareness and take action. Access it through www.harrychapinfoodbank.org and click on the orange Hunger Action Month banner on the home page. Ideas include: Hold a food drive in your neighborhood or business; collect your spare change for a month and donate it to the food bank; sign up for a food bank tour; put the Hunger Action Month calendar in your church bulletin or post at your office and more. This is a time of critical need for many families, since the additional costs of returning to school coincide with the time of year when many families experience economic hardship due to the seasonal nature of their employment, said Ashley Jones, director of social services for The Salvation Army Naples Regional Coordinate. The Salvation Army-Naples is a Harry Chapin Food Bank partner agency. With the current economic conditions and higher rent costs, coupled with the rising costs of food, assistance is more important than ever for those facing financial hardships, Ms. Jones said. Here are some of her ideas on how to take action during Hunger Action Month: For business leaders: Consider how you can contribute your time and resources to hunger relief efforts for the promotion of a socially just, economically strong Florida. For educators: Explore how you can become further involved in efforts to increase nutrition education for your students to promote a healthier, higherperforming student body. For individuals and families: Ask your elected leaders to consider the issue of food insecurity and its possible solutions when selecting policies and making decisions for Florida. Finally, consider wearing orange the color for Hunger Action Month as often as you can throughout the month. Grab a plate The symbol for Hunger Action Month is an empty plate. The Harry Chapin Food Bank invites people to email photos of themselves and friends or family holding a paper plate, completing the sentence: On an empty stomach, I cant ___________. On the other side of the plate, complete the sentence: But I can _____________ to help end hunger. Post it on your Facebook page. Email it to ghthunger@ harrychapinfoodbank.com so it can be posted to the food banks Facebook page, too. COURTESY PHOTOSVolunteers sort potatoes at the food banks first Family Volunteer Day in June.

The charity mobilized in conjunction with local Rotary clubs through Bobbi Bird, who works for Meals of Hope in Naples and is the district governor of the Southwest Florida Rotary District. She contacted a Texas-based Rotarian district to mobilize funds and volunteers to help those affected by Harvey. Meals of Hope CEO Steve Popper and COO Katie Schweikhardt also made the trip to Texas, along with the organizations director of community outreach, John Ribble. Within days of announcing the Texas event, the online volunteer signup sheet was completely full. The Greater Dallas Rotary, District 5810, helped round up more than 600 volunteers and raised more than $21,000 to pack meals for Harvey victims. The Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church became headquarters for the meal-packing efforts, with 226,176 meals of fortified macaroni and cheese packed and ready to ship to the Central Texas Feeding America Food Bank just after 1 p.m. on Saturday. Partners and volunteers in the effort included the Presbyterian Church, St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, Unity Dallas, NorthPark Presbyterian Church, Temple Emanu-El, the Plano Metro Rotary Club, the Rotary Clubs of SWFL, Rotary District 5810, Meals of Hope, Northridge Presbyterian Church, and Central Texas Food Bank. Southwest Floridians who didnt get a chance to make the trek to Texas will get their shot to help out on Saturday morning, Sept. 23, when Meals of Hope hosts a meal-packing event at North Naples Middle School. Volunteers are welcome to come and help out starting at 9 a.m. Monetary donations are just as important to cover the costs of the meals (23 cents per packed meal).

The orange tablets depicted Trumps signature sweep of hair and his rosebud mouth. An unnamed 51-year-old man and his son, 17, also had a large sum of cash and were taken into custody.Cultural diversity The Japanese funeral industry demonstrated its forward thinking on Aug. 23 when practitioners gathered for the Life Ending Industry Expo in Tokyo. Among the displays was a humanoid robot named Pepper who can conduct a Buddhist funeral, complete with chanting and tapping a drum. Pepper is a collaboration between SoftBank and Nissei Eco Co., which wrote the chanting software. Michio Inamura, Nisseis executive adviser, said the robot could step in when priests are not available. Also at the Life Ending Industry Expo in Tokyo, four undertakers competed on stage as funeral music played to see who could best display the ancient skills of ritually dressing the dead. The Shinto religion in Japan believes that the dead are impure just after death and that dressing the body purifies the spirit. The contestants dressed live human volunteers and were observed by three judges. Rino Terai, who won the contest, said, I practiced every day to prepare for this competition.FAN-anticJeffrey Riegel, 56, of Port Republic, N.J., left em laughing with his obituarys parting shot at the Philadelphia Eagles. In it, Riegel asked that eight Eagles players act as pallbearers, so the Eagles can let me down one last time. Riegel owned season tickets for 30 years, during which the Eagles never won a Super Bowl. InexplicableAn Arkansas Highway Patrol officer spotted an unusual sight on Aug. 23 on I-30: a black Hummer with a casket strapped to the top of it. When the officer pulled over Kevin M. Cholousky, 39, of Van Buren, Ark., he took off and led police on a chase along I-530, where his vehicle was eventually stopped by road spikes. Although the casket was empty, Cholousky was charged in Pulaski County with fictitious tags, reckless driving and fleeing.

She and father Zac Smith have two older children, both born with birth defects, and the image is putting them at ease about their third child. Once ... we looked at the picture, I was like look, babe, we have nothing to worry about, Smith said.Least-competent criminals Jocsan Feliciano Rosado, 22, was driving a stolen car on Monday, Aug. 21, when he stopped off at a Harbor Freight store in Kissimmee to pick up a welders helmet for viewing the solar eclipse. As he dawdled next to the vehicle, looking up at the sun with his helmet on, members of the Orange County Sheriffs Office Auto Theft Unit interrupted his reverie and arrested him. Adam Darrough, 29, of Little Rock, Ark., tried to elude officers who had arrived at his girlfriends house to arrest him by climbing out a back window. But when that didnt work, he hid in her attic. Meanwhile, Erinique Hill, 20, held police at bay outside her home. Things went south for Darrough when he fell through the attic floor, and Little Rock police officers arrested him for a number of felonies, including hindering arrest. Bright ideasTuffy Tuffington, 45, of San Francisco was walking his dogs, Bob and Chuck, when he came up with a way to respond non-violently to a right-wing rally at Crissy Field on Aug. 26. So he launched a Facebook page asking San Franciscans to bring dog poop to spread in the park in advance of the event. It seemed like a little bit of civil disobedience where we didnt have to engage with them face to face, Tuffington said. Contributors to the project also planned to show up on Aug. 27 to clean up the mess and hug each other. Your cold, cold heartA police officer on maternity leave was ticketed and fined 110 pounds after she pulled her car into a bus stop in west London to help her newborn baby, who was choking in the back seat. Rebecca Moore, 31, of Aylesbury, said her son, Riley, was going a deep shade of red in the face, his eyes were bulging and watering, and he was trying to cough but was struggling. Moore appealed the fine, but the Harrow Council rejected her appeal, as did the London Tribunals. The law about stopping in bus stops is exactly the same everywhere in London, a council spokeswoman said. You cant do it.

Grant ensures Shelter Nights can continueThe Golisano Childrens Museum of Naples has received a $25,000 grant from an anonymous donor to enable the museum to continue its Shelter Nights program through August 2018. The Shelter Night experience focuses on expanding the behavioral and social skills of children from birth through 12 years old who are living in or receiving treatment from shelters in Collier County. The current program consists of a private evening of play and learning at Cmon for shelter residents, outpatient therapy participants and children dealing with difficult life issues. Additionally, once each month Cmon staff brings educational outreach lessons to partners who have a physical location. During these outreach visits, a more focused social and emotional lesson takes place. Cmon Shelter Night partners include the Shelter for Abused Women & Children, Youth Haven, St. Matthews House and Friends of Foster Children Forever. Cmon feeds hungry young minds with the building blocks of success called the executive functions, including impulse and emotional control, flexible thinking, working memory, self-monitoring, planning and prioritizing, task initiation and organization. Research shows that executive function skills are a stronger predictor of life success than intelligence. For more information about Cmon, visit www.cmon.org.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY EASY GETAWAYParrothead playground even appeals to those who arent Jimmy Buffett fans BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comFlorida has scores of spots where you can find frozen concoctions to help you hang on and tourists covered in oil, and where you can, indeed, smell shrimp beginning to boil. But at Margaritaville Hollywood Resort, you can find all three and so much more. The $175 million Jimmy Buffettthemed resort opened in late 2015 as the centerpiece of revitalization along Hollywood Beach. Built on the site of the former Hollywood Beach Casino, the 17-story, 349-room property is the first Margaritaville resort (there are others in Key West, Pensacola, Mississippi, Tennessee, the Cayman Islands, St. Thomas and Puerto Rico) to achieve the AAA Four Diamond ranking. In addition to its eight bars and restaurants (be sure to indulge in a slice of Key lime pie during your visit it is divine!), Margaritaville Hollywood has 22 cabanas and three pools, including a lagoon pool especially popular with families and one, the rooftop pool with a License to Chill Bar, more geared to grown-ups. The beach itself is a huge draw, of course, but guests also are drawn to the FlowRider (a surfing simulator) and to shops and restaurants along Hollywoods iconic Broadwalk and the city band shell, where concerts are held five nights a week. Paddleboard, kayak and bike rentals are available, too. When we visited, midweek before school began, the resort was packed with families. But that shouldnt scare adults away. There is much to do away from the kids and ample space to do absolutely nothing, if that is your preference. Youll discover a no worries vibe and the feeling of getting away for it all as soon as you walk in the lobby, where homages to Mr. Buffett can be found at every turn from the largest-ever margarita glass chandelier to a gigantic flip-flop sculpture and even some of Mr. Buffetts personal surfboards. Mr. Buffett has been known to make surprise visits, resort officials said. The Maestro of Margaritaville performed a concert there when the resort opened almost two years ago. You dont need to be a Parrothead to revel in the fun at Margaritaville, but if you are, youre gonna love it even more. All guests are granted a license to chill upon arrival. Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort1111 N. Ocean Drive, Hollywood>> Rates: $209 and up, plus a nightly resort fee of $29 to cover basic wireless internet service, access to tness center and classes, two beach chairs and one umbrella, in-room coffee and bottled water, and local calls. Overnight parking is $30, or $35 for valet parking. >> Info: 844-5OCLOCK (844-562-5625) or www.MargaritavilleHollywoodBeachResort.com RUTH CINCOTTA / COURTESY PHOTOHollywood Beach has a unique seaside promenade called the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk that stretches nearly 2 miles along the Atlantic. THE MARGARITAVILLE BEACH RESORT / COURTESY PHOTO Room designs reflect the colors of the sea and sky and have a no worries vibe. Left: Another homage in the lobby to Jimmy Buffetts song Margaritaville can be found in this painting in which a womans body is cleverly disguised as a parrot. The lobby of the Margaritaville Hollywood Resort boasts the largest ever chandelier made from margarita glasses. Pros and amateurs show off their surfing skills at FlowRider, a surfing simulator.

Take a stand for health BY VINCENT CANGELOSISpecial to Florida WeeklyJust recently my 83-year-old mother had a heart valve replacement surgery that went very well. I was thankful and amazed at the ability of the doctors to travel up the artery in the groin and strategically place the heart valve. The procedure lasted a little over an hour and on this particular day there were several being done with such a great success rate it was almost routine. Once in the clear, I began thinking about this life-saving procedure and had the thought of security in knowing that technology can save so many. I immediately realized how easy it is to trust in these doctors and procedures rather than take measures now to ensure a healthy lifestyle and avoid the ever-growing population of chronic disease sufferers. The United States leads the world in health care spending as well as takes the lead in many of the chronic diseases. The good news is that many chronic diseases are preventable with a moderate amount of exercise and some healthy lifestyle choices. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, approximately half of all American adults have a chronic disease. We spend more than $8 out of every $10 treating people with chronic conditions many of them preventable, says the American Heart Association. We simply cant afford to be sick anymore. Our choices have consequences that affect us physically and financially. Its time to stand up and stomp out sedentary lifestyles. Through education, motivation, inspiration and a little perspiration people have shown they are able to take charge of their lives and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The simple key is to begin moving again for a healthier you. Donna Nakazawa, the author of The Last Best Cure: My Quest to Awaken the Healing Parts of My Brain and Get My Body, My Joy, and My Life, has said that people with sitting jobs have twice the rate of cardiovascular disease as people who stand while they work. The engineer who drives the train has a shorter life span than the conductor taking the tickets, she said, adding, People who sit and watch TV for three hours or more a day are 64 percent more likely to die from heart disease. Through the years, less activity has led to increased preventable chronic disease. One of the main reasons people cite for the inactivity is not having enough time in the day. So for some, the answer initially lies in starting with small, bite-size portions of exercise during their work day and at their work stations. It has been my experience that the inclusion and infusion of exercise during the workday has proven to be successful in combatting sitting and improving ones outlook on exercise. I have developed a program called On the Hour that can be easily implemented into the existing framework of your day to provide the incentive and energy needed to build a healthy work life balance. On the Hour is designed for you to do exercises each hour at your workstation. For example, if your workday is from 9 to 5, then at 9 a.m. you would perform nine repetitions of a particular exercise that gets you out of your chair or seated position. The first exercise may be a toe touch to back extension. Then each hour (On the Hour) you would perform that number of repetitions until 12 noon. A second exercise (sit to stand/squat) will begin at 1 p.m. with 10 repetitions, 2 p.m. with 20 repetitions, and 3 p.m. with 30 repetitions, and so on. Repetitions are based on each individuals physical ability and can be modified to fit ones fitness level. Now is the time to make the change and start your journey to an active and healthy lifestyle.

That wasnt easy. Baby gates, steps to the furniture and closed doors became the rule in our home. We carried Harper up and down the stairs multiple times a day and lifted her onto the bed at night so we didnt have to worry that she would try to jump up on her own while we were sleeping. She looked disappointed every time we left the house to go on a walk and didnt take her along. And nothing could stop her from twirling and dancing at mealtime. Ensuring that a pet rests for weeks or sometimes months after surgery or medical treatment, such as medication injections for heartworm disease, can be a trial for dog and cat owners. Not only is it impossible to explain to a pet why she cant run and jump the way she does normally, its also a challenge to prevent her from overcoming barriers. Nonetheless, its a must to ensure a safe and effective recovery. Reining in a pets activity level calls for creativity and strict supervision. Heres how to survive, whether your dog or cat must be confined for three days or three months. Baby gates and exercise pens are your friends. Whether his Jack Russell terriers are recovering from knee surgery, eye injuries or bite wounds, Patrick Burns keeps them indoors, confined to a crate surrounded by an exercise pen. The dogs can relieve themselves in the ex-pen and then they are put right back in the crate. For cats, a double show cage is a good choice, says Lorraine Shelton, who breeds Selkirk Rex and Norwegian Forest cats. She likes the double SturdiShelter PopUp, which is secure, easy to clean and has good visibility. Its just the right size for a cat or a small dog. Tether your pet. Keeping him on leash and always at my side was the best way to keep my former foster dog Kibo quiet after his injections for heartworm disease. The drug causes the worms to die and disintegrate, so dogs must remain inactive during the three-month treatment period to ensure that no potentially fatal blockage occurs in the pulmonary vessels. Close doors. Harper usually spends her day napping beneath my desk. It was easy to forget she has definite ideas about when bedtime should be. We would go look for her, only to find that she had already jumped on the bed on her own. We had to start keeping the bedroom door closed all the time. Use pet steps to furniture. We placed steps at one end of the sofa and blocked the rest of it with an ex-pen so that Harper could only use the steps to get on it. That worked until she noticed she could jump from the side at the other end. We put an end to that by blocking it with the plastic lid of a storage container. Ban boredom. Work on touch games such as learning to touch your hand or a target stick with his nose, or teach skills such as watch me that dont require any activity. Feed meals inside the crate. To keep your pets brain busy while hes confined, put food in an enrichment toy so he has to do a little thinking to get at it. Be patient! Before you know it, your dog or cat will be ready for action again.

THE DIVA DIARIESAnother fraudulent fall is undermining my pumpkin latte I just cant do imaginary autumn again this year.Fake fall feels just as weird as Christmas in July or as wonky as bringing artificial snow to Southwest Florida during the holidays for children to play in while theyre wearing shorts and flip-flops. Ive often called September my Bitter Fall. But its only because I love an actual, real fall so much I love fall more than bacon, more than Sex and The City reruns and even more than Happy Hour. And I suppose Im bitter about it because the feeling of fall isnt all that far away even Jacksonville and Tallahassee get a taste of actual autumn. But down here, September is just a cruel extension of a relentless, sweltering summer that lasts well into late November. My bitterness usually starts with something someone posts on Facebook and it happened this morning when a northern friend wrote, Its September! Pumpkin spice, sweaters and scarves cant wait! By the way, this northern friend lives in Tampa. Even Tampa gets more of a fall than we do. Jealousy is such an unattractive state, but when Im immersed in faux fall and my neighbors are decorating their front doors with plastic leaves in autumn colors that are wilting sadly in the sun; when Im watching commercials for fall fashions wooly sweaters, cute boots and cozy scarves; when my family in Ohio is texting me selfies while theyre at fall football games wearing long sleeves, I cant help it my envy for crisp air, hot apple cider, fireplaces and pumpkin patches is palatable. And even though were still in hurricane season down here in this neck of the sand, its clear to me that Im not the only one who has a heart that aches for fall. I drive past houses with scarecrows bravely propped up against palm trees, I visit friends who arrange gourde cornucopias on their dining room tables, and even change out their sofa throws to ones with burnt orange, golden rod, and sienna brown colors to keep the chill off when they crank the air-conditioning down to 70 degrees. Rather than being bitter about imaginary autumn, maybe I should follow the lead of friends and neighbors by putting up fall-like decor and make an effort to create a nonexistent season in my own home I mean, after all, thats why they make pumpkin spice scented candles, right? Its just that when I venture outside, the humid reality will hit me in the face and I fear Ill become even doubly bitter. I think a better solution is to save the money Id spend on fake fall decor and put it towards an October trip to visit family in Ohio. Then in February, Ill make sure to post lots of selfies from the beach after all, for every season, theres a way to make someone somewhere jealous. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org
A26 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThis is truly a quiet revolution. The battery-powered Chevrolet Bolt turns on in near silence, and it stays that way for its full 238-mile range. It does all this without shouting its electric vehicle superiority. From the outside, the Bolt is absolutely a Chevrolet. It looks like the halfway point between the compact Sonic and Trax crossover. And while its mildly related to those, the Bolt has been specifically designed to cheat the wind with aerodynamic panels. Plus, the tall, wedge-shaped style is used to maximize space without leaving a large footprint. Inside, a two-tone gray on the seats, door panels and dash is an attractive and uniform look so its good that this is the only one available (its leather in the Premier trim.) The Bolt has the right standard features like automatic climate control, plenty of USB hookups and a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen. For the driver, the gauge package with the electric distance readout is the best around. GM figured out that part of the anxiety over how much range a driver has left comes from the uncertainty of conditions. After all, its a bit of a gut punch to watch the cars distance go from 100 miles to 90 miles just by turning on the air conditioner. But the Bolt gives a high, low and real-time range updated for battery power and usage it eliminates surprises and makes this electric car feel less tethered to a cord. In fact, Chevrolet is quick to point out that the Bolt has a $750 DC fast charging option. It can yield 90 miles of range within 30 minutes of charging. And there are enough of these CSS fast charging stations along the I-75 and I-95 corridors to make it from Naples or Miami to I-10. This kind of interstate trip would only average about 45 mph, but were marking the first time that an EV has a real plan for road trips without running out of juice. In reality, the best use for the extended range is still rooted in the urban freedom it provides. For someone who commutes less than 20 miles, the Bolt can deliver the convenience of plugging in on Sunday night then having enough electricity to last the workweek. And unexpected school pickups or business trips dont cause nervousness. More than just good range, the Bolt is fun to drive. The battery pack is located in the floor, which gives it a great center of gravity. Plus, the steering is sharp. The instant torque of an EV gives it a sports car-like acceleration from a standstill, and the 200 hp AC motor is one of the most powerful around. So for those times when drivers are feeling more frisky than efficient, the Bolt can be quick and nimble both in town and on the highway. This kind of electric car freedom starts at $37,495, but its closer to a $30K vehicle after its tax credit. That money buys everything from a Mazda Miata to an EcoBoost equipped Ford F-150. But those are unfair comparisons. The allure of the Bolt lies in its technology. To simply just look at what else is available for the money is like mentioning that a Seiko or Fossil can easily be obtained for the same price as an Apple Watch. Within the electric car family, the Bolts price falls between the Nissan Leaf and the BMW i3. The Chevy feels more advanced than the cheaper Japanese car, but it cant match the European sophisticated feel of the more expensive German. And neither one of the competitors can topple the Bolts range practicality. The real challenge comes when the new Tesla Model 3 comes online. Its targeted to have within 20 miles of the Bolts range and possibly cost less. And Nissan will be back with a new Leaf very soon. Thats the speed of technology. The Chevrolet Bolt is an amazing high-tech leapfrog that takes an extremely complex setup and makes it as versatile to use as any other gasoline-powered car. Still, there is the prospect of something new on the horizon. Just like waiting for the next iPhone, the EV game is about weighing the technological marvel thats available right now versus the gossip of the next big thing. The difference with the Bolt is its a tough car for a buyer today to regret tomorrow. After all, even as the next allelectric car advances the market further, its hard to be disappointed with the first budget-minded EV that only needs to be plugged in once a week. BEHIND THE WHEELBolt offers 238 miles to a charge, and its fun to drive mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

BUSINESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 | A27WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM FROM THE TOPWawa veteran happy to helm first Collier store BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comNaples residents with northeastern roots rejoiced with the grand opening of Collier Countys first Wawa store on Aug. 31. Dozens of Wawa fans were lined up at 8 a.m. to be among the first who stepped foot in the bright, new, 24-hour, one-stop gas station/hoagie/coffee store at the corner of Radio and Livingston roads. Wawas roots go back to the early 1800s, when it began as an iron foundry in New Jersey. It has reinvented itself over the generations as a dairy company and fresh food market, along with other convenience-aimed offerings. The Naples store is Wawa Inc.s first of three planned locations in Collier County. The company has a ravenous following in the northeast, near its Pennsylvania roots. The chain has more than 750 convenience retail stores in the U.S., all located in Pennsylv ania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Florida. With many part-time Naples residents based out of the north, the audience for a Wawa store here is already built in. Northeasterners are well versed with Wawas iconic hoagie and coffee offerings. Everyone who waited in line on opening day received a free coffee, and all who stop in through Sept. 10 will enjoy the same. Terry Walls is leading the 5,636-squarefoot location as general manager. Along with a team of nearly 40 employees, Mr. Walls was on hand opening day. Dressed in suit and tie, he doled out free T-shirts and interacted with happy customers. The Virginia Beach native transferred to Florida last spring and has since overseen the opening of Wawas Lehigh Acres location and led its Cape Coral team. Terry is a wonderful asset to the area, said Sheri Walker, area supervisor for Wawa in Southwest Florida. Hes always willing to lend a helping hand, provide advice, share his knowledge and go the extra mile not only for his store and the area, but the company as a whole. Mr. Walls started at the bottom rung in the food business, with his first job being in a grocery store as a bagger. With more than two decades of experience in the industry, he said Wawas community involvement is what drew him in. Initially, my wife saw a hiring sign near our house and said I should apply. I connected with the Wawa culture and values and knew it was an organization that I wanted to be a part of, he said. He became a general manager in 2007, spearheading a number of new locations, training new employees and connecting WALLS SEE WAWA, A28 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYORGET WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT love. Its change that really hurts. Corporate leaders will tell you its the biggest challenge they face today. Constant change makes it difficult to remain relevant and to create value for customers. As humans we hate to change, says Andi Simon, Ph.D., the author of On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights. Whether its introducing a state-of-the-art computer program or transitioning a company to a wholly new and innovative way of working, she says, Your brain literally creates chemical pain that says, Please stop all that new work.SEE DIRECTION, A28 FAn anthropological approach can help leaders conquer change in their business New direction
with the community. He has been very pleased with his move to Southwest Florida. Its a great place to visit and an even better place to live, he said. The grand opening activities in Naples included a Hoagies for Heroes sandwich-building competition, with members of the Collier County Sheriffs Office and Greater Naples Fire Rescue District facing off to see who could build the most hoagies in three minutes. The firefighters won the contest and took home a trophy. Wawas charitable arm, the Wawa Foundation, declared each team a winner, however, and presented $1,000 to each to give to the charity of their choice. CCSO donated its check to the Collier 100 Club, which provides immediate financial assistance to the families of fallen police and emergency responders; the Greater Naples Fire Rescue District turned its earnings over to the Greater Naples Fire Foundation. Wawa also donated $2,500 to the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Interview with Terry WallsBusiness mentors: Ive worked for a variety of managers, and theyve all made big impressions on me. Theyve shown me how I want to manage and how I dont want to manage. My management style has been influenced by my experiences with each of them. First job: I was a bagger in a grocery store.

But its not a smooth, easy or comfortable process.Dealing with challengesBusiness challenges come in many forms, often stemming from external forces such as economic crises or macro shifts in consumer behavior. Yet sometimes roadblocks can come from within a company, when comfortable, but rigid patterns prevent the adaptation and change needed to remain competitive.When a business hits a point where big ideas have stalled, sales are in a slump and it feels unable to keep up with quickly evolving trends, the emerging practice of corporate anthropology can help.Based on the same principles as classic anthropology the science of observing humans to understand how they live corporate anthropology encourages business leaders to step outside their day-to-day processes to observe not only how their enterprises operate, but where unmet needs truly exist. The rationale is simple: Your customers, employees and partners cant objectively tell you why they behave in certain ways, but when you view them and your business with fresh eyes as an outsider, its possible to see the opportunities otherwise overlooked. In On the Brink, corporate anthropologist and management consultant Ms. Simon provides a crash course in the game-changing business techniques behind corporate anthropology, while giving examples of organizations that have used the method to bounce back from crisis. From a medical center facing multiple years in the red and a rural college battling decreasing enrollment to a large plumbing equipment manufacturer whose award-winning product just wasnt selling and a major customer care company searching for growth, the stories of seven companies struggling to innovate and grow powerfully illustrate the solutions that corporate anthropology can reveal. EvolutionIts tough enough for the people at the top to think about reworking processes and policies; imagine the difficulties when youre talking about altering the culture of an entire workplace. Companies have cultures, whether they know it or not, Ms. Simon says. Its an amalgam of core values, beliefs and behaviors that pertain to the business and the way it is conducted. Employees live out that culture every day. And when the corporate culture has to evolve, get ting employees on board can be a challenge. But if company leaders can provide purpose to the changes by showing how theyll improve business and create stability after the transition they have a better shot at a quicker buy-in. To do that, though, they have to interact with their employees and also get out of the office and witness firsthand how customers use the product or service. Ms. Simon suggests adopting an anthropologists tool kit to: Conduct observational research Consider shadowing clients and employees as they use a product or service. Find out what their challenges are, and what trends have them concerned or excited. Find customers pain points What happens when someone contacts the companys customer service center? What works and what doesnt? Are emails and phone calls answered? What happens when people visit the website? If responses are delayed or unsatisfactory, find out why. Use culture probes and storytelling What are the stories customers and employees could tell if they had a company leaders ear? Put away any defensiveness and just listen. Ms. Simon also advises companies to expand the research role past the executive level. Allow team leaders and others to be a part of the companys new story, she says, and encourage them to visualize how they can play new roles in an emerging business environment. Theyll be the energy behind your innovation, she promises.Whether youre searching for a way to revitalize your business or to expand a currently successful operation into new and profitable directions, the strategies outlined in On the Brink will give you fresh eyes and a fresh approach to achieve meaningful business breakthroughs.About the authorAndi Simon is the founder and CEO of Simon Associates Management Consultants.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Return on Assets, ExplainedUnderstanding how to assess a companys return on assets (ROA) can help you see how capital intensive it is and how much value it wrings from its resources. Capital-intensive companies require a lot of costly assets to generate their earnings. Examples include manufacturers, oil companies, retailers, railroads and airlines. Businesses with lighter business models (financial services and internet companies, for example) dont have lots of factories, storefronts or inventory and can be more attractive, often sporting higher profit margins, too. To determine a companys ROA, youll find all the numbers you need on its recent balance sheet and income statement (sometimes called a statement of earnings). As an example, lets review Wal-Marts fiscal-year 2017 results. Return on assets is determined by dividing net income for a period by total assets during that period. Before we proceed further, know that net income is reported on a companys income statement, and income statements reflect a period of time, such as a quarter or year. Net assets are found on the companys balance sheet, which reflects the state of the company at one moment in time. For fiscal year 2017, Wal-Mart reported $13.6 billion in net income. To get its total assets during that period, well have to average its total assets as of the end of fiscal 2017 and 2016. Those numbers are $198.8 billion and $199.6 billion, respectively. Their average is $199.2 billion. So dividing $13.6 by $199.2, we get .068, or 6.8 percent. This shows that Wal-Mart creates 6.8 cents of earnings from each dollar of assets. The higher the ROA, the better, of course. (In contrast, eBay, not weighed down with stores and inventory, recently sported an ROA of 35 percent.) Its good to compare a companys ROA to ROAs of other companies in the same industry and to track how its changing over time, as that can show it getting more or less productive. You can often find a companys ROA (both current and past numbers) calculated for you at websites that feature stock data, such as morningstar.com. A Trip to ProfitopolisMy dumbest investment was buying one of your recommendations, TripAdvisor, at $55 per share. Its now trading for around $40 per share. Ugh. O.C., onlineThe Fool Responds: Our services are, overall, beating the market, but that doesnt mean that every recommended stock will perform as expected or hoped. Even the best investors have gotten some calls wrong. That said, many solid investments can look like dogs for a while. Will TripAdvisor be a long-term winner? Its too early to say, but critics can reasonably worry about the growing competition it faces and how well it can monetize the more than 530 million user reviews on its site that cover more than a million hotels and accommodations, four million restaurants, and much more.Still, believers have a lot to be hopeful about. Last quarter, TripAdvisors average monthly unique visitors reached nearly 390 million, up 14 percent year-over-year. Its building a profit center via travel bookings and restaurant reservations, and it recently onboarded IHG and Expedia to its Instant Booking platform, which now sports all major Western hotel chains and both of the major online travel agencies. Its also beefing up its advertising spending in order to attract more customers and fuel long-term growth.How well the company will ultimately do remains to be seen, though, and anyone not confident that it has a good chance of succeeding should probably not be holding on to shares. Balm in GileadRapidly sinking sales of drugs that essentially cure hepatitis C have hammered Gilead Sciences stock (Nasdaq: GILD) so hard youd think its bleeding money. But nothing could be further from the truth. While its hepatitis C drug revenue has been shrinking and HIV drug competition is heating up, the drugmakers balance sheet still boasted a whopping cash balance of $36.6 billion at the end of June after its operations generated a stunning $2.6 billion in free cash flow during the second quarter alone. At this pace, the worlds leading seller of antiviral drugs would produce about $0.12 of distributable profits for every $1 used to purchase shares at recent prices. Gilead has used its massive cash flows to lower its share count by about 14 percent over the past three years, plus the stock offers a tempting 2.8 percent dividend yield at recent prices. Its cash can also let it spend a lot acquiring other companies (or just some of their drugs) or inking profitable partnerships with smaller companies developing promising drugs. With double-digit sales growth in its HIV treatment segment and a diverse clinical pipeline that sports compelling candidates in high-value areas such as rheumatoid arthritis, Gileads stock is arguably a great value buy for any investor right now simply because of its immense cash position. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Gilead Sciences.) I trace my roots back to 1872, when I started the first paper mill in Wisconsin. I introduced Kotex napkins in 1920 and Kleenex in 1924. Today, based in Dallas and sporting a market value recently topping $40 billion, Im a consumer products giant, with more than 40,000 employees worldwide and brands such as Depend, Poise, Little Swimmers, Viva and Pull-Ups. Five of my brands Huggies, Scott, Kleenex, Cottonelle and Kotex each generate more than $1 billion in annual sales. Almost a quarter of the worlds population buys one or more of my products each day. Who am I? (Answer: Kimberly-Clark) Bond TimingQWhen is it a good time to buy bonds? A.M., Portland, OregonAFirst, understand that bond prices tend to fall as interest rates rise, because when new bonds are issued at higher rates, older bonds with lower rates will be less attractive. Right now, interest rates are more likely to rise than fall, as theyve been near historic lows. Also, know that over most long periods, stocks have outperformed bonds. Despite all that, it can be worth adding some bonds to your portfolio for diversification. When the stock market tanks, bonds can offset some losses though thats not guaranteed.There are many kinds of bonds. If you expect interest rates to rise, you might invest in shorter-term bonds instead of getting locked into a low rate for decades. You might also invest in actual individual bonds instead of bond mutual funds and ETFs, because if you hold them to maturity, youll get your principal back. (Funds and ETFs offer diversification, though, spreading your money across many bonds.) While government bonds are safest, they offer lower interest rates than, say, corporate bonds. Alternatively, consider CDs, as they can offer interest rates competitive with those of high-quality bonds. Look up CD rates at bankrate.com. ***QWhere can I find the earnings reports that companies file with the SEC? J.C., Ashland, KentuckyAMany financial websites offer these filings in their stock data offerings, but you can go right to the horses mouth at www.sec.gov/ edgar.shtml. Once there, click on Search for Company Filings, after which you can choose to look up filings using a companys name or ticker symbol. Its smart to regularly review 10-K (annual) and 10-Q (quarterly) r eports, as they can tell you a lot about a company. Want more information about stocks?

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays first tower nears selloutTower 2 contracts remain strongThe first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, is 90 percent sold. Of the 120 residences in the 22-story tower, only 12 remain. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2 earlier this year, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Currently, the number of residences already under contract in the second tower exceeds the $60 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the openair fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-theart fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, said Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, has been hired as the Clubs General Manager. Jones is a Certified General Manager, one of only 1,200 in the country. The Manchester, England native has worked in the cities of London and Atlanta, as well as on Grand Cayman Island in the Caribbean. More than 20 years ago he moved to Naples and has been associated with some of the finest Beach and Golf Clubs in the area. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile.

The information provided above is not intended to be an offering and should be considered as informational only. Sure, every town has beautiful parks or lakes. Grand homes or city halls. But the truth is, most towns arent created equally at all. This one is. Babcock Ranch is an entirely new town. Where the streets are planned but the wilderness isnt. Where energy comes from the oldest source in the world and powers the newest technology. This is a town where the frontier meets the front porch in a whole new way.ALL TOWNS ARENT CREATED EQUALLY. A better lifeBABCOCKRANCH.COM 888-979-7220Solar power generation takes center stage at Babcock RanchSolar Trees, Rooftop Arrays expand solar presenceRecent additions to Founders Square at Babcock Ranch shine a spotlight on the new towns commitment to solar energy. Solar panels installed on commercial rooftops, electric vehicle charging stations and five solar trees installed within the initial downtown district help position this charming new hometown on the cutting edge. Located off State Road 31 north of the Lee County Civic Center, the solar-powered town being built by Kitson & Partners will eventually be home to 50,000 people living and working in a town of 19,500 homes and apartments and six million square feet of commercial space all constructed to Florida Green Building Standards. Sustainability features from water conservation to alternative transportation are woven right into the infrastructure of this environmentallyfriendly community. But solar power is what really sets Babcock Ranch apart. We spent a lot of time talking about how to make the community sustainable, how to make it different than anywhere else and solar energy to us was the key, explained Syd Kitson, Chairman & CEO of Kitson & Partners. Our partnership with Florida Power & Light (FPL) makes us the first solar-powered town in the country. The Babcock Ranch Solar Energy Center, located on 440 acres of former sod-farming field on the northern edge of the new town, generates more clean, renewable energy than the new town will ever consume. The 74.5 MW solar field went online in December of last year before the new towns first buildings were constructed. But the partnership with FPL extends beyond the solar field. Earlier this summer, FPL installed five solar trees around Founders Square functional sculptures with solar panels powering charging stations for smartphones and other handheld electronics. The solar trees are also an educational tool for students at Babcock Neighborhood School who will learn about renewable power generation by monitoring data feeds from the solar tree located just outside their door. Late last month, solar panels placed on the rooftops of three buildings at Founders Square added another 121 KW of solar generating capacity. These rooftop arrays are the first of many micro-communities of solar generation that FPL will be installing on top of commercial buildings throughout the new town. Our technology and renewable energy focus make Babcock Ranch a living laboratory where great new technologies can be incubated, adopted and continually improved to stay on the cutting edge, Kitson said. For future generations, we are creating an environment where our kids will feel open to exploring new ideas and using technology in new ways to transform their lives.

Solar Trees add style and functionality powering charging stations for handheld electronics under the shade of the solar panels.

POOL, FITNESS CENTER, TENNIS & BOCCE COURTS! OPEN SUN. SEPT. 10TH 1-4PMIts open house day and buyers are flocking to your property. What happens when touring guests need to use the bathroom? Will they ask you or will they wander off and accidentally use your propertys detached toilet? For the touring guests who are too embarrassed to ask, HouseLogic writer Stacey Freed contacted real estate pros for input on the top hidden questions buyers have about open house etiquette. Can I use the bathroom? A client with a full bladder needs a place to go, but how would they know if the homes toilets are functioning? Guests should ask permission, says Pat Vredevoogd Combs, former National Association of Realtors president. Ms. Combs works in Grand Rapids, Mich., and deals with many vacant homes without running water, especially during the winter. If no one asks, inform guests about bathroom use early on during the open house and be sure no ones using an unusable toilet. And if youre at a busy open house, being in the loo for more than a minute means other potential buyers cant check out the facilities and may not want to after youve, um, done your business. To be safe, schedule in a few pit stops at restaurants or gas stations along the way, suggests Ms. Vredevoogd Combs. Is it OK to bring in my coffee? Many first-time home buyers are Millennials, and I almost never see them without a cup of Starbucks in their hand, Ms. Vredevoogd Combs says. I had one guy spill his coffee on white carpeting and we had to get down on our hands and knees to clean it up. Buyers need to take caution when bringing outside drinks to open houses, and food is a no-no unless the seller is offering snacks. Guests should eat only in the kitchen, preferably over a napkin. Can I look in the closets? Absolutely, says Tg Glazer, 2016 president of the New Jersey Association of Realtors. Whoever is touring the property is welcome to look inside closet spaces, Mr. Glazer says, but agents should not allow guests to ransack through whats already in the home. Buying a home is probably the biggest purchase buyers are ever going to make, and they need to check out everything. How about a quick selfie with this awesome, lemon-colored range? With smartphones being practically an appendage for many buyers, snapping pics to share with friends and family is so easy. But hold your trigger finger, especially if youre planning to share the images online. Whether you can take photos and videos seems to be a regional custom, Ms. Vredevoogd Combs says. In some cases, sellers have valuable things and dont even want their homes promoted online. Ask permission first. Can I plop down on that chaise lounge? Ms. Vredevoogd Combs says shes not a fan. Feeling comfortable enough to want to sit on the furniture might be a good intent to buy, but it isnt your furniture and youre not buying it. Plus, that cozy looking couch or comfy bed might be staged air beds or cardboard boxes wearing fancy clothes so you might take a spill. If you need to sit, for health reasons or that sprained ankle from your last marathon, just ask. Thats not unreasonable. The bottom line is the old-fashioned Golden Rule: Do unto others homes as youd have them do unto yours. Be on your best behavior, says Ms. Vredevoogd Combs. Pretend the seller is there and sometimes they are, even if you cant see them. They might be waiting next door at a neighbors house and wander back at any minute. So its also a good idea to keep comments to yourself. You wouldnt want them to overhear how much you love the master suite that could mess up your negotiating power if you decide to buy. Whats rude to ask during an open house? Visit us online at www.FloridaWeekly.comiPad is a registered trademark of Apple, Inc. All rights reserved.

University Press of Florida. 198 pages. Hardcover, $24.95.This totally engaging, compact treatment of early U.S. film history is packed with information and a lot of fun. Before Hollywood was crowned the movie capital, St. Augustine was right up there. More than 120 movies were filmed in whole or part in the northeast Florida city, revealing the talents of major producers, directors and actors. The fledging silent film industry made St. Augustine sizzle in the winter, when film makers and performers escaped the unpleasant New York weather to enjoy themselves in a town that seemed to have been created to provide the kind of scenic beauty cameramen feasted on. Though the span of St. Augustines life as a home to the film industry ran from 1906-1926, its heyday was much briefer. Author Thomas Graham surveys the first 11 years in a single chapter. The core years were 1912-1919; the last few years of this period undermined by World War I. There was at least one good year with many productions in the early 1920s, but the fade had begun. New York film industry investors were moving west, as was the talent pool for movie making. While it lasted, the comings and goings of the film people brought a great deal of excitement to St. Augustines residents and visitors. Most of the films needed extras for crowd scenes and brief walk-on parts. Even more fun than having the camera look your way would be the follow-up thrill of seeing yourself and your fellow townspeople on the screen when the movie was shown. St. Augustinians got a kick from their brush with fame. And the brush with fame included being in the company of notable performers and other celebrity movie folks. You might get to open a door, in real life or screen life, for Ethel Barrymore or Norma Talmadge. You might have to avoid staring too hard at that iconic vamp, Theda Bara. You may have laughed at Oliver Hardy, either on screen or in person. You could mix with, or at least hear gossip about, the heads of studios and their senior staffers people who could write stories, design costumes or turn St. Augustine into almost anyplace you could imagine. St. Augustines fascinating architecture and its natural beauty along with its desirable weather and ability to house and feed the film crews and players is what drew the studio heads there and kept them coming back. Some even toyed with constructing permanent facilities in this most historic city. Names like Thanhauser, Lubin, clair, Path, Edison, Fox and Vitagraph were constantly in the local news. So were esteemed directors, including Edwin S. Porter, Maurice Tourneur, Sidney Olcott and George Fitzmaurice. Business tycoon Henry M. Flaglers Hotel Ponce de Leon was one of several large structures in Spanish Renaissance style that, with a bit of movie magic, stood in for exotic locations in Europe, Egypt and Arabia (a nearby island beach took care of the need for desert scenes). The 84 black-and-white photos that Mr. Graham has assembled underscore the versatility of St. Augustine. Its flora and buildings could provide all the exteriors and interiors that any film could need with the help of some carpenters and painters, of course. Mr. Graham has provided a scholarly book that is at once informative, authoritative and a lot of fun. Following the main body of his study, he presents an alphabetical appendix of movies made in St. Augustine and another list of actors who appeared in these movies. Those who wish to learn more can benefit from detailed chapter notes and generous bibliography. The author, Professor of History Emeritus at Flagler College, lives in St. Augustine and is the author of Mr. Flaglers St. Augustine. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, has written 20 books, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. p T m b i a i philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com GRAHAM r I. i t h 0 s, l m s t, k nd a s of d n k p n desi ra bl e we at he r an dabil d M an gl of Re m ti o ne n e T Mr sc o Its a ll an y o f s co u M arl y au th the m ents ma de o f a c i es T bene f g ene r Th e Em er i

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYwant to keep this lighthearted preview handy to know what to look for. Sept. 8It Im not sure whats scarier: the return of Stephen Kings shape-shifting clown who terrorizes kids, or the fact that the movie is two hours and 15 minutes. Sept. 15Mother! In this thriller from director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), a married couple (Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem) is tested when another couple (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer) visits. I guess the visitors never heard Benjamin Franklins saying about fish and houseguests smelling after three days. Sept. 22Battle of the Sexes Steve Carell and Emma Stone play Bobby Riggs and Billy Jean King in the lead up to their 1973 tennis grudge match. Yes, this is the first time tennis and grudge match have been used in the same sentence. Kingsman: The Golden Circle Colin Firth is back from the dead in this sequel to the 2014 hit Kingsman: The Secret Service. This time theres an American twist on things with Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore and Halle Berry also starring. The LEGO Ninjago Movie You wouldnt think a LEGO ninja movie would be good, but remember the first two LEGO movies were surprisingly good. In other words: This is going to be good.Sept. 29American Made Tom Cruise plays a drug runner for the Medellin Cartel and a CIA informant, which makes you think theres no way his character should make it out alive. Flatliners Remember the 1990 original with Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts? Good. Rewatch that instead. Oct. 6Blade Runner 2049 Harrison Ford returns and Ryan Gosling takes the lead in this sequel to the 1982 cult classic. There are seven versions of the original, so Im going to wait until at least the third or fourth version of this one before I bother. The Mountain Between Us Kate Winslet and Idris Elba star as strangers trapped atop a freezing mountain after a plane crash. I dont understand the title. If theyre trapped together on top of the mountain, the mountain isnt between them, its below them, right?Oct. 13Goodbye Christopher Robin Bet you didnt know Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, et. al., were created by depressed WWI veteran A.A. Milne (Domhnhall Gleeson) as he tried to connect with his son Christopher. The question is: Did you want to know that? Marshall Chadwick Boseman, who recently played Jackie Robinson, James Brown and the Black Panther, stars in this biopic about the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall. If nothing else, Mr. Boseman is showing his range. Breathe Robin (Andrew Garfield) and Diana (Claire Foy) are a loving couple who dont let his polio prevent them from enjoying their lives together. Its directed by Andy Serkis.Oct. 20Wonderstruck Julianne Moore stars in a dual role in director Todd Haynes (Carol) latest, a drama that shifts between 1927 and 1977 and is sure to be a stylistic gem.Oct. 27Suburbicon George Clooney directs Matt Damon and Julianne Moore (yes, her again) in this home invasion dramedy because nothing says haha! like being terrorized by a stranger in your home. Professor Marston & The Wonder Women Based on a true story, Luke Evans, Bella Heathcote and Rebecca Hall play parts of the love triangle that led to the creation of Wonder Woman. Somebody shouldve told the studio that a period piece drama is not the way to shamelessly capitalize on one of the biggest hits of the year.Nov. 3Thor: Ragnarok The bad: Thor (Chris Hemsworth) cut his hair and lost his hammer. The good: Cate Blanchett is the villain, and the trailers promise a playful tone and a lot of Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). The Man Who Invented Christmas Dont be fooled by the title, which should really be The Inspirations for Charles Dickens to write A Christmas Carol. A Bad Moms Christmas The bad moms (Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell) have their own bad moms (Christine Baranski, Susan Sarandon and Cheryl Hines) come to help ruin Christmas.Nov. 10Daddys Home 2 Good dads (Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell) welcome bad dad (Mel Gibson) and overly affectionate dad (John Lithgow) to town for Christmas. Will there be any peace, love and understanding this holiday season? Murder on the Orient Express Director Kenneth Branaghs all-star cast for this adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel includes Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench and many more. Its one of the greatest mystery stories ever written, so in fear of spoilers be sure to avoid the internet for the next 2 months.Nov. 17Justice League OK, Justice League. Wonder Woman just saved your fledgling DC Comics Extended Universe, so dont screw it up by being all dark and moody and blurry like Batman v. Superman. Wonder Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson play parents who send their son (Jacob Tremblay), who has a distorted face, to mainstream school for the first time when he gets to fifth grade. Nov. 22Coco This is the second Pixar release of 2017 after Cars 3; the only other time the studio released two movies in one year was 2015, when we got Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur. Lets see if this year is as hit-and-miss as 2015 was. Death Wish Bruce Willis plan to make the world dumber by watching his movies is in full force with this remake.Dec. 1The Disaster Artist The Room (2003) has earned a reputation as being spectacularly, stupendously terrible. Actor/director James Francos The Disaster Artist is about the making of The Room. Early buzz suggests its spectacular. Wonder Wheel Woody Allens latest follows a bored 1950s Coney Island wife (Kate Winslet) who develops a huge crush on the hunky new lifeguard (Justin Timberlake), only to have her husbands (Jim Belushi) daughter (Juno Temple) become competition for him. Lets face it: This is what Woody Allen does best. Count me in.Dec. 8All the Money in the World In Rome in the early 1970s, Italian kidnappers abduct the grandson of the richest man in the world, John Paul Getty (Kevin Spacey). Director Ridley Scott (The Martian) is underrated as a dramatic filmmaker, and with a cast that also includes Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, this is one to look forward to. The Shape of Water During the Cold War, a mute woman (Sally Hawkins) discovers a secret government experiment. For as creative and visionary as Guillermo Del Toro (Crimson Peak) is as a director, hes terrible at naming his movies. Dec. 15Star Wars: The Last Jedi Also known as Episode VIII in the Star Wars saga, and the last time were going to see Carrie Fisher as Leia. Some people think it might do OK at the box office.Dec. 20Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Kind of odd to name this remake after a Guns N Roses song, but hey, it stars The Rock, and who doesnt like The Rock?Dec. 22Pitch Perfect 3 This time our favorite a cappella group goes on a USO tour to perform for the troops. Cue the cute outfits, energetic covers and inspired mash-ups that weve come to expect and love from these movies. The Papers Spielberg, Streep and Hanks. The Washington Post, Nixon and the Pentagon Papers. Oscars? Downsizing Alexander Payne (Sideways) directs Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig in this social satire about people who shrink themselves because they believe it will lead to a better life. Sounds corny, but Mr. Payne and Mr. Damon have been too good over the years to not trust them here.Dec. 25The Greatest Showman Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams star in this original musical about P.T. Barnums famous circus. The songs will sound modern in spite of the mid-1800s setting, which Baz Luhrmann proved in The Great Gatsby doesnt really work. Perhaps director Michael Gracey has some tricks up his sleeve? Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson film Daniel Day-Lewis allegedly last performance is in this original story from his There Will Be Blood director. All we know is that its set in 1950s London and deals with high society fashion. MOVIESFrom page 1 DISNEY PHOTODaisy Ridley in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) slated to screen Dec. 15.

Gulfshore Playhouse puts new works in the spotlight SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYGulfshore Playhouses fifth annual New Works Festival brings together playwrights, actors and directors from across the country for a program that culminates in a series of staged readings for the public Sept. 7-10 at The Norris Center. Each staged reading concludes with a Q&A session with the playwright. This years new works are: Tychos Fool by Ross Peter Nelson The greatest astronomer of the 16th century is dead, and there are whispers he was poisoned. An intergalactic cabaret harnesses the electrons of a 40-year-old TV show to reenact the past and solve the mystery. The reading of Tychos Fool is set for 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept 7. Hungarian Rhapsody by Susan Cinoman A farmers wife in rural Budapest receives an unexpected visit from a mysterious gypsy who changes her perspective on love, normalcy and passion. The reading is at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8. Buried Under a Blackbird Sky by Stephen Spotswood Eve Beecher, a premiere forensic anthropologist, returns to her hometown for an assignment at a church. Thrown back into the world she escaped, shes forced to deal with the past she ran away from, including an abusive home life and her one-time love, S amantha, the church minister. The reading is at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9. Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Elusive Ear by David MacGregor The notorious and as-yet undiscovered genius Vincent van Gogh presents the master-sleuth Sherlock Holmes with a most unusual case. Aided by his partner Dr. Watson and his paramour Irene Adler, the trio embarks on a rousing adventure. The reading is at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10. The New Works Festival plays were selected by a corps of volunteer readers from a pool of 150 blind submissions. The event allows playwrights to transition from writing, to adding actors and an audience, to understanding how the play works in a performance setting. The festival is one of the best ways Gulfshore Playhouse can contribute to the national landscape by fostering the growth of up-and-coming playwrights, says Kristen Coury, company founder and producing artistic director. It is especially exciting when a play emerges from the festival that we feel is a great fit for our audience and our theater, Ms. Coury says. Miss Keller Has No Second Book, a finalist from last years festival, is in the lineup for the companys 2017-18 season, she adds.

INSIDE: NEW57 FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com II 2017 Newcomers SWFL 57Sanibel-CaptivaTHEY SEEM ALMOST AS ONE, THESE IDYLLIC, SUNsplashed barrier islands just off the Lee County coast. Theyre both dotted with palm trees and beaches, lovely homes, fine restaurants and resorts. Now, their connection is a bridge and a chamber of commerce and the feeling of subtropical tranquility. Actually, until a 1926 hurricane blasted them apart, they were one island. Now, theyre two, but they share a lifestyle and more. Until 1963, the islands could be reached only by boat. But a causeway linked Sanibel to the mainland in 1963 and many things changed. More people moved there and more tourists visited. Many of those residents and visitors are often spotted doing the Sanibel Stoop, walking along an island beach collecting shells. Sanibel is one of the worlds top shelling destinations and home of the Bailey-Mathews National Shell Museum, the only such museum in the country. Sanibel is also home to J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, a pristine retreat where more than 220 species of birds can be found. Its all just a convenient drive over a bridge from the mainland.

ADVERTISE YOUR BUSINESS TO THIS SPECIALITY AUDIENCE!Our Regions Guide to Living in Paradise CELEBRITY EXTRAFall for Julie Gonzalo in Vermont BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Can you tell me what Julie Gonzalo has been up to? I loved her in TNTs Dallas reboot. Lynn H., Conyers, Ga.A: Julie has been keeping busy making movies, including the Hallmark Channels Falling for Vermont, which premieres at 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23. She plays Angela Young, a bestselling author who decides to escape the media frenzy surrounding her books and their movie adaptations, gets caught in a thunderstorm and crashes her car on her journey of escape. When the town doctor (and single dad) Jeff Callan (played by Benjamin Ayres) finds her wandering with no memory and no ID, he offers up his guesthouse until her memory returns. But as she blends seamlessly into their family life, she must decide if the life shes been living is the life she truly wants. Julie recently revealed this to me about the role: She wasnt out to find this world (in Vermont), but the world finds her. Its beautiful to know what your life can be. Yes, follow your dreams, but also follow your heart. Find what truly makes you happy and what truly speaks to your heart a career or a person or a town, whatever it is because ultimately, if youre not happy within that, youll never be happy. You never know whats going to happen tomorrow or if there is a tomorrow, so just make the most of right now. Q: Is it true that Hannibal is being revived? Katie R., via emailA: Show creator Bryan Fuller recently teased that he and Hannibal executive producer Martha De Laurentiis might revive the suspense/horror/drama about the iconic Hannibal Lecter (played by Mads Mikkelsen). In early August, Bryan tweeted: @neoprod has started those conversations. This takes time. Earlier this year, he told Mick Garris on Mick Post Mortem podcast: Ive had conversations with Martha De Laurentiis. Ive had conversations with Mads (Mikkelsen) and Hugh (Dancy). Were all excited about the prospect of returning to the story. Theres an interesting next chapter in the relationship between Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter that would be fascinating to unpack.

CONTRACT BRIDGEThe disappearing trickBY STEVE BECKERTricks that can be made to disappear are usually a source of great interest to bridge players. This deal from a rubber-bridge game would surely attract almost any players attention. If you examine all four hands, it appears declarer is destined to lose three trump tricks and a diamond. But South, warned by the double to expect a bad trump division, not only made the contract but made it with an overtrick. Declarer won the diamond lead with the king and began a campaign to score as many of his small trumps by ruffing as he could. First he cashed the K-A of clubs and trumped a club, then crossed to dummy with a diamond and ruffed dummys last club. Next, South played the A-K of spades and ruffed a spade. By this time nine tricks had been played, and South had won them all. His last four cards were the Q-8-7 of hearts and a losing diamond. East, in the meantime, had done nothing but follow suit and still held the A-J-10-9 of hearts. With the contract already assured, South set out to make an overtrick by leading the nine of diamonds. West played the ten, but East was forced to trump it. East had to return a trump, and no matter which one he led, declarer was sure to score both the queen and king and so wind up with 11 tricks. It is doubtful that South would have adopted this line of play had East not doubled. It would have been more normal to tackle trumps immediately in the hope of finding a 3-2 division. He still might have made the contract, but certainly not the overtrick. Easts questionable double put South on the right track. It underscored once again the most important word in the contract-bridge vocabulary: Pass.

SEPT 11 PATRIOTS DAY SPECIAL:Bring a Veteran or rst responder and they eat for free. All Titos Vodka Drinks $7 September 7-14 FILM CAPSULESThe Only Living Boy in New York 1/2(Callum Turner, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Beckinsale) In his early 20s and aimless in New York City, Thomas (Mr. Turner) sleeps with his fathers (Mr. Brosnan) mistress (Ms. Beckinsale) and ends up even more confused about life. The ending is decent, but this is the type of indie film thats full of high-minded ideas that never amount too much. Rated R.The Trip To Spain 1/2(Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan) Friends and comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play versions of themselves as they sample fine dining and tourist attractions throughout Spain. Most of it is good conversation thats reasonably consistently funny, though it does get a bit too chatty for its own good at times. Not Rated: Adult themes. Logan Lucky (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig) The Logan siblings (Mr. Tatum, Mr. Driver, Riley Keough) and career criminal Joe Bang (Mr. Craig) plan to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during the biggest race of the year. Its a fine return to form for director Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11) and is full of cameos to keep you smiling. Rated PG-13.Kidnap (Halle Berry, Sage Correa, Chris McGinn) A desperate mother (Ms. Berry) will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son (Mr. Correa). The story is thin and the action is decent; too bad for Halle Berry that mediocrity is not good enough. Rated R.The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature (Voices of Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Jackie Chan) When a greedy mayor (Bobby Moynihan) wants to build an amusement park, squirrels Surly (Mr. Arnett) and Andie (Ms. Heigl) and the rest of the animals try to stop the destruction of their home. Its not funny, and its actually insulting to the human race. Rated PG.Lady Macbeth 1/2(Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie) An unhappily married woman (Ms. Pugh) in mid-1800s England has an affair with a groundskeeper (Mr. Jarvis) and will stop at nothing to keep it going. The story is dark and twisted, but the real revelation is the emergence of Ms. Pugh, who is superb. Rated R.Atomic Blonde (Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella) British Secret Agent Lorraine (Ms. Theron) is sent to Berlin in 1989 to retrieve a list of secret agents thats fallen into the wrong hands. The story is too complex for its own good, but the action especially one on a stairwell toward the end are excellent. Rated R.Dunkirk 1/2(Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh) The brave actions of individuals on land, at sea and in the air during the WWII Battle of Dunkirk are chronicled in director Christopher Nolans (Inception) latest. Its superb filmmaking per usual for Mr. Nolan: Briskly edited, great of use of sound and bold images that immerse you in the action. Rated PG-13. Lost in Paris (Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, Emmanuelle Riva) Canadian librarian Fiona (Ms. Gordon) has never left home, but ventures off to Paris after receiving a letter from her aunt (Ms. Riva) asking her to come. Hijinks and hilarity ensue. A silly French comedy in the style of Jacques Tati and the great silent comedians, its quirky and playful in all the best ways. Not Rated (but nothing objectionable).War for the Planet of the Apes (Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer) After his wife and child are murdered, Caesar (Mr. Serkis), the leader of the apes, vows veng eance on the man who killed them (Mr. Harrelson). Thats right: Caesar only wants revenge on one guy, so theres not much war here at all. Its one of the many letdowns in this third part of the new Apes trilogy. Rated PG-13.Spider-Man: Homecoming (Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton) Spider-Man (Mr. Holland) must stop a black market arms dealer (Mr. Keaton) from selling alien technology to criminals. Solid action, humor and a winning performance from Mr. Holland in the title role make this thoroughly enjoyable summer fare. Rated PG-13.Despicable Me (Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker) Gru (Mr. Carell), his long-lost brother Dru (Mr. Carell again) and Lucy try to stop 1980s-inspired villain Balthazar Bratt (Mr. Parker) from destroying Hollywood. Too much focus on Mr. Carells two characters and not enough on the villain and story make this an uneven disappointment. Rated PG.

YesThe Wind River Indian Reservation is a terrible place to call home. In Wind River, all the locals hate it. Its cold, isolated, unforgiving and horribly dull. Its also, through the eyes of writer/ director Taylor Sheridan, a pretty effective setting for a murder mystery. Jeremy Renner stars as Corey Lambert, a hunter/tracker in this remote and frigid Wyoming territory. When working in the vast mountainside, he discovers the body of Natalie (Kelsey Asbille), a local teen whose father (Gil Birmingham) is an old friend of Coreys. With the well-meaning tribal police, led by its chief (Graham Greene), of little help, FBI Agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) enlists Coreys assistance to find out who raped and murdered Natalie. Jane isnt fresh out of the academy the way Clarice Starling was in The Silence of the Lambs, but she might as well be. Shes from Fort Lauderdale, was stationed in Vegas and shows up in Wind River wearing a thin jacket and heels. Later she gets maced while confronting a suspect, and after that gets a rude surprise while knocking on a door. Shes competent, but this is all new for her, and one of the appeals of the film is watching her navigate this unfamiliar territory. Really, though, its Mr. Renners movie. His Corey is an emotionally broken man whos excellent at what he does and who uses this expertise to maneuver as needed to find answers. At some points it might come a bit too easily for Corey, but because hes a sympathetic figure and we like the chemistry he shares with Jane, the story keeps us engaged. Until it doesnt. If the first two-thirds of Mr. Sheridans (Hell or High Water) film provide a good story and drama, the last third falls apart. The villains are introduced late, the resolution is unsatisfying and the ending is overall anti-climactic. At one point Corey refers to a character as dying with a whimper; the same could be said of the movie. Still, there are enough positives to make it marginally worth watching, including impressive cinematography by Ben Richardson (Beasts of the Southern Wild) and a musical score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis thats appropriately ominous without being overbearing. There are also some nicely acted individual scenes, including a law enforcement standoff and a flashback to the night of the rape. Crime-driven, snow-covered movies like this are inherently fascinating. Fargo is the best of its kind, but theres also the underappreciated Snow Angels and A Simple Plan, to name two more. Theres something about the harshness of the elements reflecting the bitter cruelty of the story that often allows the films to really click. Wind River might not click as much as it should, but it uses this appeal in the best ways possible. a A a c t i dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Wind River was shot on location in Park City, Utah, which is home to the Sundance Film Festival. The movie made its world premiere at the festival in January this year.

Paid: $45 The Skinny: Id sworn off buying more Cambridge Crown Tuscan glass I have too much, but I love the shell motif that adorns so much of it. This bowl is especially pretty, with lots of fire, or opalescence. I love the way it glows, and its both pretty and elegant. Cambridge made its Crown Tuscan pink color from 1932 to 1954. I especially love the Art Deco pieces and the nudes made in this glass. The quality is wonderful and the glass reminds me of a time when even factory-made pieces had lots of hand finishing. THE FIND:A Crown Tuscan glass shell bowl by Cambridge Glass Co.The water was murky the afternoon I drowned. Obviously, I didnt drown, but I was convinced I had drowned. Fortunately, my dad jumped in wallet, watch, shoes and all to rescue me when a wave swept me away from a boat ramp in Bonita Springs. The water was murky and I remember tumbling for an eternity that probably lasted for all of a few seconds. At 2, I was too young to be embarrassed, but the event left its mark on me, and I was terrified of the water for a time. I eventually got over my fears and loved to visit Fort Myers Beach, which had a funky vibe in the s and 0s. Wed leave the house around 10 or so on a Saturday or Sunday morning I remember my mother driving about eight of us in my dads Suburban, the vehicle bucking at stop and start because she had not yet mastered its clutch. At the beach, we drove through a coral-rock arch and crossed Matanzas Pass via a swing bridge to get to the beach. That 1920s bridge sometimes stuck, forcing motorists to turn around and drive all the way down the barrier island to get back to the mainland. For a small kid, old Fort Myers Beach was a magical place. You could walk along the pier and for a nickel or a dime, you could use a telescope to peer far off into the Gulf of Mexico, or look up and down the beach. There were no high rises only cottages, mom-and-pop motels and a trailer park or two. Even then, the Red Coconut played host to RVs and campers and the occa-FAMILY PHOTOScott Simmons grandmother, Kathryn Bolender, poses on the Fort Myers Beach pier around 1960. nt s d y e s ue ve m i ta w a s man b ly fe w u n g b ut m ark ter for T FAMILY PH OTO ttSimonsgrandmother,Kathryn sional Airstream trailer. I laugh to think that before there was the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina, there were the Pink Shell cottages pastel-tinted stilt houses that lined the shore. And there was plenty of shelling. You could walk along the waters edge and see the tiny coquinas glistening in the sunlight. Sand dollars washed onto the beach and soon were bleached by the sun. Iridescent stiff pen shells we called them turkey wings sparkled amid the dried seaweed along the white-sand shore. But not all creatures along the beach were dead. During one visit, a group of anglers struggled to reel in a stingray that fought them from underneath the pier. Another time, I remember trying to take home a horseshoe crab, only to be told by my great-grandmother that it was cruel. What would your Sunday school teacher say? Grandma Gladys asked. I grudgingly returned the ancient creature to the water and learned that some things are best left to memory.

Its a pretty heavy burden to carry, and only a few easily attainable dishes can satisfy it in exactly the proportions I require. I used to think an ultimate sub from Publix was the one thing that ticked all the boxes, but that was before I tucked into a Roast Beef and Cheddar Sandwich at Straight from New York Bagels. The relatively compact sandwich is composed of a generous serving of roast beef, sharp cheddar cheese and horseradish sauce on a Kaiser bun, all of which combine to hit a spot I can only rarely reach. It was flavorful, cold, filling and just right. I was so satisfied, I didnt even need to consider a Bialy or a cinnamon roll to top things off. Now I know where to go next time. On More Thing: Thats real potato salad dressed with fresh flat-leaf parsley. Unlike that mayo-laden glop many places foist on their customers, you can identify each ingredient and not count days off your life while doing so. It was really good.

AVAILABLE IN OUR OUTDOOR AND INDOOR BAR ONLY. AND STAY A WHILE... PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Big Hickory Seafood Grille, 26107 Hickory Blvd., Bonita Springs; 9920991 In a bayside marina on a quiet stretch of Hickory Boulevard, Big Hickory is off the beaten path but has long been worth tracking down. The expansive view of boats, mangrove islands and birds makes the bayside deck a hot spot, and Big Hickory enjoys a reputation for award-winning dishes that play with local seafood and fruit. Think plantain-crusted grouper with bananainfused sauce and shrimp tacos drizzled with Key lime aioli. The popularity of such signature items might explain why the menu has not changed much over the years. But we can report that the mahi coco loco (coated in coconut and topped with pineapple and butt ery rum sauce) and apple-mango grouper (with salsa and passion fruit sauce) are as good as ever. Service can be leisurely, so sit back and enjoy the view. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed October 2016 Catch 41 Bar n Grill, Ramada Inn, 1100 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 263-6046 The Ramada has a winner in its latest restaurant, run by talented Executive Chef David Lani, a Culinary Institute of America alum who helped launch 7th Avenue Social. The atmosphere is casual, the food is fun and fanciful. Cucumber mojitos started the meal off on a cool and refreshing note. Three Maryland style mini crab cakes with remoulade, grilled Mexican street corn and cotija cheese made a great appetizer. The bao bun tacos tucked into Chinese-style buns rather than taco shells come in three versions, and I liked all three: the crispy pork belly with charred jalapenos, mango and bourbon glaze; blackened shrimp with kim chee slaw; and wild mushrooms with hoisin, onion and cucumber. Red grouper sliders and a pair of mini hot butter poached lobster rolls with garlic beurre blanc were great entrees. Also well done were sides of hand-cut fries and roasted cauliflower with garlic and Parmesan. The stout beer milk chocolate pudding is a great ending for beer lovers. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2017 Sophias Ristorante Italiano, 3545 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 597-0744 Tucked between a Harley Davidson dealership and a Hawthorne Suites sits a gem of a restaurant that seems as if its been lifted right out of Italy. Sophias is filled with lovely Tuscan browns and golds with mosaic patterns on tables and floors. The staff is uniformly gracious, and some also come with charming Italian accents. And the food. Try not to overload on the housemade breads served with herb-studded olive oil. The fried calamari was excellent, but I could have made a meal of the tender-crisp rapini and well-seasoned sausage with polenta. The zuppe de pesce is a remarkable mountain of seafood, but veal is a specialty here and the osso buco, a special that evening, was fork-tender and delicious with a side of porcini risotto. Sea bass with clams, caperberries and house-made linguini was just right. For dessert, the house made tiramisu was light, delicious and ample for two. The wine list is noteworthy as well. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2015 The Crust, 8004 Trail Blvd., Naples; 244-8488 This popular pizza spot at the Pavilion Shopping Center has added a second, much-needed larger location just a few miles away on US 41. About four times the size of the original (which remains open), it serves the same Midwest-style pizza in the former Big Als space. Try an old-fashioned soda we loved the Dr. Pepper and Orange Crush made with real sugar rather than highfructose corn syrup. A Caesar was fresh with a mild dressing. A house salad had good ingredients but needed a more assertive dressing than the house-made Champagne vinaigrette. A 10-inch BBQ pizza had a thin, crisp crust topped with smoky barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, red onions, smoked gouda, provolone and cilantro. My companion chose one with mushrooms, Kalamata olives and basil. Both were excellent. Service is efficient and pleasant. Full bar.

Born in Northern India, he brings his well-developed talents for art and cooking to this elegant and innovative newcomer where youll find some of the standards as well as intriguing offerings such as lobster mulligatawny soup, dumpukhy goat biryani and jhinga prawns. The ghehra paani diver scallops were plump and delicious atop a mound of black lentils with orange tomato jus and yellow pepper coulis. Palawaka chaat consisted of crisp fried baby spinach leaves intermingled with dates, tamarind and yogurt. A trio of baby lamb chops were moist and seasoned with a touch of mint and mustard. From the entrees, great choices were the seafood medley, the saffron chicken korma and the Nizams kofte, vegetable and cheese dumplings. Full bar.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 CUISINESummer opening gives Timeless plenty of time to gear up for seasonRemember when virtually all Naples restaurants shutter ed their doors in August and the staffs headed off for that much-needed break before the start of the next winter season? But as more people have chosen to live here year-round and the industry has grown more competitive, most restaurants operate all year, taking off a couple of weeks here or there. There are even restaurateurs who decide to open new establishments in what used to be dead time. And so how appropriate is it that one recently opened spot has dubbed itself Timeless? Timeless An MHK Eatery is the brainchild of esteemed area architect Matthew Kragh and well-known chef David Nelson. Mr. Kragh has designed a lovely new space in the style of Old Florida architecture that is white and modern, with high ceilings, lots of wood and a variety of spaces in which to enjoy its fresh, clean lines. Whether you want something quick at the counter that lines the open kitchen, a casual glass of wine or beer and a pizza in the lounge or a more leisurely meal in the dining room or outdoor courtyard, theres a spot to suit your mood. Previously of Trulucks and Avenue Five, Mr. Nelson is highly visible within the open kitchen where he and his staff create pizzas in a coal-fired oven along with an eclectic assortment of hearty small plates, salads, sandwiches (lunch only) and full-sized entrees (dinner only). There is also brunch fare on the weekends, such as frittatas, burritos and banana custard French toast. Vegetarians will find a smattering of options, but they can broaden choices by requesting that the pancetta, bacon, chorizo or other meat found in many dishes be omitted. A bonus is that Timeless adjoins La Colmar bakery, run by third-generation French baker and pastry chef Yannick Brendel, who imports his flour from France and bakes in the tradition of his family. The bread and pizza crust served at Timeless come from his kitchen. The bakery was, unfortunately, closed at the time of our visit, so we will be back for a more thorough exploration of this promising newcomer. It would be ideal if the bakery were open into the evening so that Timeless customers could mosey over for coffee and dessert. I can attest to the excellence of the bread if the basket of tender pita we received with hummus shortly after being seated is any indication. It was just right for the creamy chickpea spread. On a hot, rainy night, the Yealands Estate single block sauvignon blanc ($54) from New Zealand seemed like a good bet and it was, arriving nicely chilled and exuding a lovely nose of stone fruits with a trace of flint. It was crisp and bright with notes of pear, grapefruit and lime. It proved a good counterpoint to the smoked, coal-fired lollipop wings ($12), five of which were served on a plate with a sweet and spicy barbecue sauce, chiligarlic gremolata and, for cooling the palate from the spicy bite, some Rogue Creamery smoky blue cheese dressing and chunks of cheese. The wings were fat and juicy and, although I like mine with the skin cooked to a crisper consistency, I worked around that and thoroughly enjoyed the meat and accompanying sauces that leaned more to the spicy side than the sweet one. My companions Timeless house salad ($9) contained a mix of power greens, vanilla-cinnamon infused apples, goat cheese and frosted spiced pecans. The house-made honey champagne vinaigrette was ideal for this delicate salad. All the ingredients were fresh and crisp, with the exception, of course, of the creamy goat cheese. It was a light, satisfying starter. The cedar-planked salmon ($26) arrived right on said plank. A small cup of creamy smoked tomato butter accompanied it for dipping, and a bowl of grilled potato and kalamata salad complemented the fish nicely. The salmon was cooked to a perfect medium, with a firm outer crust and moist interior. This was a beautiful and well-executed dish. I tried a 12-inch white clam pizza ($14; the 16-inch version is $26) and was rewarded with a good-sized pie topped with lots of chewy clams, Asiago cheese, herbs and garlic along with a grilled lemon half. The crust was excellent thin but not cracker-like, with some give to it and a delicious yeasty flavor and texture. The toppings were good, although the Asiago was somewhat salty and made it hard to discern the clam flavor. Dessert choices were somewhat limited: crme brulee, a peanu t butt er pie and something described by our server as apple strudel pie ($12), which turned out to be apple strudel pizza, an extremely sweet rendition of this classic treat. The crust was hard to cut and because of the wealth of sweet, gooey sauce, was difficult to pick up as well. We each ate a piece or two but left most it. This is best ordered for a group that wants to share. Timeless has only been open a bit more than a month and is already demonstrating a passion for excellence and imaginative offerings. And that can only mean that, in time, it is likely to get better and better.

LeeHealth.org We all share something important a total commitment to the health and well-being of everyone in the Southwest Florida community. Whatever the need, we partner with you to help you keep your body healthy, your approach positive and your future bright.Neighbors, Colleagues, Family with the Community.JOINED HEALTH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 5 What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?The health care environment is changing rapidly throughout the U.S., and Lee Health is part of that transformation. One of the most visible changes this past year is our new name. Lee Memorial Health System officially marked its 100th anniversary last October and began a new century of caring as Lee Health. The new identity reflects the future direction of health care delivery, which is moving away from a provider of episodic care to partnering with the community and individuals to live a healthy life. Lee Health is taking a more proactive role in shaping, supporting and inspiring our communitys health and well-being. How are you responding to changes in the local economy?In its role as the leading provider of health care in Lee County, Lee Health must be responsive to the demand for health services as the community grows. Over the next ten years, we will invest more than $1 billion in capital projects in our community. We have a number of different projects underway, but the two most prominent are Lee Health Coconut Point, an innovative outpatient facility in the Estero/Bonita Springs area that will include a freestanding emergency department among other services, and the expansion of Gulf Coast Medical Center, which will add 275 more beds. What will you base your success on for 2018? Well-run health systems typically use a scorecard tied to its strategic goals to measure how well it is meeting its objectives. A scorecard increases organizational focus on execution and results by measuring those things that truly matter. The Lee Health scorecard identifies key performance indicators in five strategic areas, with service, safety and quality being of particular importance. It is publicly available in the About Us section of our website at www.LeeHealth.org. How are you using technology to improve your business? Over the past six years, Lee Health has installed a new electronic medical record system called Epic which has transformed how we access patient information. It is impossible to share all the ways that Epic has led to better quality and safer care, but a few examples are reducing duplicate tests, alerts that warn of potential medication interactions, and ensuring important health screenings take place. Telemedicine is another way technology is improving how we provide care. The growing use of smart phones and tablets, coupled with advances in encryption to protect personal health information is making telehealth an attractive option. Lee Health is using it in the treatment of stroke, behavioral health and palliative care, several pediatric subspecialties and to home monitor patients with certain chronic diseases. Telemedicine allows patients to be cared for in their own home, which is a major convenience and cost savings for them. How are you growing and developing your employee skills? In health care you are only as good as your employees, so Lee Health puts a tremendous amount of energy into furthering the skill set of our employees through training and education. We incentivize employees to continue to learn and grow and provide scholarships to pay for advanced education. In fact, it is so important to us that earlier this year our Board of Directors adopted education as one of Lee Healths core values, along with respect, excellence and compassion. We are very pleased to have Lee Health ranked 29 out of 500 large companies included in Forbes magazines Americas Best Employers 2017 list.Can you tell us about a new hire who will make a positive impact this coming year?We are adding a new position called Acute Care Medical Officer (ACMO) to our leadership team. Each of our hospitals will add this role, which is a physician who works in team leadership with our vice president of patient care services the nursing leader at each hospital. Together the ACMO and the VP of patient care are jointly responsible for the overall quality of medical care at each hospital campus. We are adding this position to expand the role of physicians in our daily operations to improve clinical outc omes, patient experience and patient safety. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate?When you work in an organization whose mission is to empower healthier lives through care and compassion, you dont have to look far to find inspiration. Every day and every night thousands of employees work with purpose and enthusiasm to make a difference in the health of our patients. I spend some time each month working side by side in a variety of units and departments to stay in tune with daily operations and connect with our employees, an activity that continually inspires me. Who is a mentor to you within your industry?Jim Nathan, who recently stepped aside as president of Lee Health after more than 30 years at the helm, has been a mentor to me for many years. Jim embodies the concept of Caring People, Inspiring Health, and I am grateful for the opportunity to build on the legacy he has left for our health system and our community.

Adults want to stay active and social, but owning a home can become too much of a burden.

What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?Consumer confidence is up and theres responsible buying/selling. Clients actually get it and are planning for their future in responsible ways. Even a seller loss can be a benefit for their familys future. It is an exciting time to be selling real estate.How are you responding to changes in the local economy? Full-time economy. We dont have to wait for season to buy or sell. Efforts for my clients are 12 months a year with an ever so slight twist of local focus and up north reachout in the summer months that results in sales for my clients.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Not to be clich, but I really do care for my clients. My practice is identifying clients wants and needs, taking time to do so, and examining how we present their property or an offer to purchase with careful review. I take the time upfront to care for my client well before we write a contract. Step by step is my motto.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business? I would love to see the level of professionalism I am accustomed to from my years of NYC business transferred to real estate agent processes. The business of real estate is a business and it should be handled in that format no matter the property price or age of client. Documentation needs to be carefully responded to, not rushed and unprofessional.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors? To differentiate myself, I have the courage to slow down the initial process. I stage a home well before photos. Too many agents rush to MLS and may hurt prices. Buying clients: I prepare pre-meetings, conference calls, pre-approvals, proof of funds This ensures my buyer is perceived as the best at offer presentation.Whats your superpower? Listening is my super power. Asking questions and clearly learning what a sale will bring to my clients life is the key to doing my job. I have their goal in mind during the process. Listening is key in my negotiating the best deal for my buyers and sellers in real estate.What will you base your success on for 2018?To clearly communicate the benefits of my daily business schedule and plans of action to my clients, Realtors and affiliates. Following the daily schedule provides a huge success rate for my clients. Explaining the process to those who dont follow a schedule in my industry is the challenge.How are you growing and developing your employee skills?My dad once said no one can take away your education. For that reason I employ a weekly business coach and attend prospecting clinics, listing processes, production retreats. Results are tracked so we can learn how to improve our results for the benefit of our clients.Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year? Past clients are the base of my business and I want to be sure to keep in touch more often so its database manager. What do you truly love about working here in Lee County/Collier County/Charlotte County/Palm Beach County? Thats easy. Every day is sunny. Even on a gray day the atmosphere of our people is sunny. Our growth is conservative, however forward moving. You no longer see neon signs and our gas stations have palm trees. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? Honestly, my inspiration was provided by my business coach. Coach: Kelly, buyers and sellers need your work ethic, professionalism and cando attitude. Kelly, you need to find clients to help. If they dont work with you they can get a less than real estate experience. So go out and find clients who need your work ethic. Who is a mentor to you within your industry?Mike Ferry. He reminds me: Professionalism beats trends, young or flashy. A hard days work... works He reminded me recently, Kelly, to date, computers are not buying properties. Personal contact is ever most necessary.What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?Be the one who is professional and does more than is expected. Even if sometimes you do everyone elses job, do it with a smile. Its not about the zeros. Business is about helping your clients achieve their goals. If that is your focus you can make a good living and sleep well at night. Listening is key for both buyers and sellers Kelly E. CapolinoKelly E.

With the advancements in technology and the ease of installation this is becoming a go-to product for customers who have water problems or are worried about water issues. A year and a half ago we did not even have this product on display in our showroom. Now we have a pretty large space dedicated to all the major suppliers.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business?Our industry is facing a serious labor shortage at the moment. The World Floor Covering Association (WFCA), which Hadinger Flooring is a member of, is diligently working on a solution to this problem. We are trying many different methods to attract young people into the field, including recently beginning to work with trade schools. What will you base your success on for 2018?All of our success is because of our great employees. We have an unbelievable team at Hadinger Flooring. We have many employees who have been here 10 plus years. Our salespeople are factory trained. We send them to different flooring mills to learn everything about the products we want them to sell. I cant say enough about how knowledgeable, professional and friendly our team is here at Hadinger. How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018?Social media is becoming more and more important to retailers every day. Most research shows that customers will visit your social media and web pages before they ever decide to visit your store. Companies must make sure that their social media presence combined with their website grabs enough of the consumers attention to bring them into their showroom. We are in the process of completely redesigning our website; we want to make it more informative and customer friendly. We also started creating a more active presence on social media and now have a dedicated associate who monitors our social media pages 24/7. How are you growing and developing your employee skills?I am currently working on a masters degree in management with a focus on executive coaching. The classes center on organizational behavior. Im looking forward to finishing my masters degree in the next two years. I enjoy getting to know my coworkers on a one on one basis. What do you truly love about working here in Lee County/Collier County/Charlotte County/Palm Beach County?I love the climate here in Southwest Florida. I am one who likes the hot weather so it fits me well. Naples is very much a relaxed town. It is not the hustle and bustle of larger cities and I like the relaxed pace. It does speed up during season which took some getting used to for me but it is nice to see the new faces. Plus, business picks up for us during this time, which is good. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate?I love what I do and love the company I work for. I have been in the flooring business most of my life. I enjoy helping customers and the satisfaction that comes from knowing we are providing quality sales and service at affordable prices. We pride ourselves in providing outstanding customer service at Hadinger Flooring. We have grown so much over the last few years but this is still a family business. We are a very close-knit family and I really like that and love going to work each morning. Who is a mentor to you within your industry?My former boss Scott Baker taught me so much about managing people. He is an incredible leader; he really knows how to manage people. He was very good at empowering his managers; he allowed them to make their own decisions and supported them in those choices. He never told you how to solve a problem but he guided you to the correct resolution and helped in any way needed. He really led by example and I learned so much about leading people from him. As far as product knowledge and merchandising I have learned so much from our current CEO at Hadinger Flooring, Ed Keller. I do not believe I have ever met anyone who knows more about flooring than Ed. Ed has a knack for knowing exactly where a product should be placed, priced, and where its value is. I have been in the flooring industry for many years and what Ive learned working with Ed in just the last year has been extremely valuable.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 11 What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year? Without question its the future of the Affordable Care Act and the whole Repeal and Replace discussion. Replacement legislation began with President Trumps Executive Order on the ACA. The first replacement legislation was called the American Health Care Act and it was pulled before a Senate vote. Its counterpart is called the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017. Whatever name is finally attached to Repeal and Replace, its the job of your health insurance agent to keep you informed and in compliance. What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? Regardless of what the Repeal and Replace final legislation looks like, the factors that are taken into account in determining your premiums are not likely to change from the ACA. Carriers can no longer use health status, past insurance claims, gender or occupation. Those factors have largely been replaced by your age, family size, geographic area and tobacco use. It is expected that both the individual and the employer mandates will be eliminated. That means you wont be penalized for not having health insurance. What can you do? See if a high deductible health plan with a health savings account would work for you. If you have an opportunity to do so, participate in a wellness program. Use Telemedicine if available. Ask your doctor if generic drugs are available and use mail order pharmacy programs. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? The cost of health care is rising much faster than the cost of inflation. In 2016, the average monthly cost of insurance premiums for an individual was $393. For a family $1,021. According to a Willis Towers Watson survey, the employer and employee total cost for insurance this year will approach $13,000. The number one cost driver is specialty drugs, specifically, biologics. As a result, more and more employers will be changing benefit contribution strategies resulting in employees contributing a higher percentage of the cost. What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business? From a health insurance standpoint, I would like to see a greater emphasis on wellness which over time, could lead to improvement in the overall cost of medical care arising out of chronic conditions. Whats your superpower? Using my teaching background, I am able to translate very technical information (like the Affordable Care Act) into basic terms that my clients and prospects can understand. How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018? Social media helps me keep up with my industry, my clients and my prospects. I use LinkedIn on a daily basis. I know that most of my clients checked me out on LinkedIn before deciding to do business with me. How are you using technology to improve your business? I see my job as knowing what technology is available and then matching that technology to my clients based on their needs and goals. My clients want paperless technology and sometimes insurance can be a very paperintensive business. I sell insurance but I also help to modernize my clients with 21st century technology.How are you growing and developing your employee skills? My background is teaching. I was amazed at the volume of professional education you need to be good at selling insurance. Its a life-long process. If you stop learning, you stop growing and cannot be a trusted advisor to your clients. We have to be licensed by the state. We are required to take continuing education. We are strongly encouraged to take and earn professional designation course work and because we are part of the BB&T family, we take about 15 internal courses on an annual basis to include ethics training, information security, data protection, HIPAA and other related coursework. What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today? Insurance can be a great way to make a difference in our community. It has allowed me to get involved with Harry Chapin on the Hunger Walk Committee; Lighthouse of SW Florida Dining in the Dark; Arts for ACT; American Heart Association Heart Ball; and the Ronald McDonald Storybook Ball.

We rely heavily on two amazing business partners to get our message out and keep our clients informed of our very fun events and new services.

We have been traveling around the country meeting with business leaders who are interested in joining us, we expect expansive growth in the coming year.How are you using technology to improve your business?We are working with Symplast, a leader in the industry, to bring the best of technology to medical supervision, automation of office functions and quality patient communication.How are you growing and developing your employee skills?None of this would be possible without our amazing team! Micaela Acres and Lauren Rigor are the backbone of our Naples office and they have a rare combination of compassion and technical excellence. We contract with Dr. Potter to provide injectables and platelet rich plasma procedures. We are fortunate to have Dr. Gregory Leach as our medical director.

Birds of a feather do tend to flock together!How do you find inspiration in todays business climate?It is always that tribe of amazing business women in Naples and throughout the country who inspire me and keep me going. I am blessed beyond belief to have these women in my corner. I am particularly impressed with the entreuprenurial spirit of the next generation of female business leaders who are making things happen in a world where the security of a corporate career is much less stable. I am extremely inspired by my daughter Sophia, who is getting a degree in business management from the University of Central Florida but is taking her future in her own hands with the successful Raw Entrepreneurs Podcast and is working with a group of young business leaders who started Core Sports and are becoming the leaders in youth recreational sports training in the Orlando area.Who is a mentor to you within your industry?Charles Hallberg, our founder and CEO, has been a wonderful mentor over the past year. He was the founder and CEO of Member Health, a leader in the discount pharmacy industry which rose to a multi-billion dollar company. He was a pioneer in the start-up industry long before that was cool. A little over a year ago, a mutual business associate brought us together. He had a great idea with Aesthetic Treatment Centers but the business lacked leadership with experience in the med-spa industry and was not on the right path. He didnt sugar coat the gravity of the state that the business was in, however, we formed an instant connection that centered around a desire to bring the best standard of care, customer service, technology and integrity to the industry. The mission was to turn the business around without additional investment. It has most certainly been a challenge and he has been there with not only sage advice, but has always recognized and celebrated our victories along the way. We are now moving in the right direction and partnering with the right people to develop a strong national brand.What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?Figure out what youre passionate about and work 10 times harder at it than your competitors are willing to.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 13 What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?Its really that there are more and better informed buyers coming in from all over the country and theyre staying longer. I am beginning to see more of a year-round atmosphere in Naples. What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? When it comes to listings, more videos are being created and more technology is being implemented to help a sale. Buyers today are a lot more educated about the properties theyre interested in and the surrounding communities thanks to the tools they have at their disposal. Frankly, thats good news for Realtors who are detail oriented.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?I continue to learn on a daily basis and try to be the best possible self I can be every day. With that said, hard work, responsiveness and follow-ups have been the keys to my success. Those things sound obvious, but youd be surprised how many people dont make the effort.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?I like to think Im original. I strive to create trends and be the best I can be both within my company and among my peers in the Naples market. You have to think outside the box to come up with creative ways to market your listings and yourself. If a potential buyer likes you and trusts you, and you can build a relationship with them, they will do business with you. In addition, I try to reach a national/worldwide market through print, digital, and other various mediums. Whats your superpower? Consistency is key. I keep to a strict structure that Ive developed over the years and continue to adapt based on the times. I work tirelessly for my customers to ensure theyre happy with their investment. Ultimately, I sell the lifestyle beyond the home. And if you are serious about customer service and building relationships, you will see success. What will you base your success on for 2018?Im really excited about 2018, as I have recently moved to William Raveis Real Estate. Im very happy about the move and feel that Raveis will be a huge asset in marketing listings based on their global reach. With my work ethic, combined with the tools and resources theyve given me, I am very excited about whats to come. Its not really about the numbers for me, though Ive consistently sold significantly more real estate each and every year that Ive been in the business. While thats terrific, its really about the opportunity to keep building more relationships.Who is a mentor to you within your industry?I am very lucky to say that my father is a mentor to me. I have always admired his work ethic since I was a little kid. Hes the most detail-oriented person I know and I continue to learn from him on a daily basis. He also makes sure that I know its not a sprint, its a marathon. What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?Fail big. Do what you feel passionate about. And take chances. Dont be afraid to fail. Dont be afraid to go outside the box. Have goals. In fact, give yourself a goal every day. To achieve them you must apply discipline and consistency. After all, just because youre doing a lot more doesnt mean youre getting a lot more done.

14 SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY What do you enjoy most about your jobs?Not a day goes by that we do not feel more blessed than the day before. Our clients are such wonderful individuals with such incredible and fascinating histories. It brings such joy to be able to give back to them. They certainly have earned their right to grow old with respect and dignity and we are so lucky to be able to provide them with this opportunity.Are there any new products or services that you will be promoting in the near future?We are excited to be rolling out our Nurse Advocacy Program. So many of our clients live in Southwest Florida without family members nearby and are sometimes overwhelmed with managing their own care. We are putting together a staff of experienced nurses that will become their clinical liaisons. These clinicians will complete an initial assessment that includes medications, physicians and medical history. Our nurses will then be available to accompany our clients to physician appointments, procedures and most importantly, will immediately be available in the event of a medical emergency to communicate with the health care providers on their behalf. We feel this program will also provide a comfort level to family members who will now have a professional to communicate on their loved ones behalf and also keep them informed.What is your process for screening and selecting new caregivers?Selecting caregivers is one of the most critical components of our business and we feel our process is a key factor in our success. Our caregivers are the people that go into your loved ones home and care for them and it is crucial that they are screened and selected to the best of our ability. We begin our hiring process with a telephone interview to determine if there is a language barrier. Our clients do not need the added frustration of not being able to communicate effectively with their caregivers. We then look at their experience and training as we require a minimum of one year of experience prior to hiring them. The next step is the state-required background screening as well as an additional screening that we outsource to a national company (ClearStar) that is much more comprehensive. Although the state does not require this additional screening, we really feel that this added screening really sets us apart from the majority of home care agencies in the area. Although these practices are critical steps in the hiring process, the final and most important step is determining if the caregiver is the right fit to become a member of our team. Character, compassion and passion are not only qualities that we look for but are essential before we allow them to work as an Angel. Unlike many of the agencies in this area, our caregivers are employees, not independent contractors. The caregivers have Workers Compensation and liability insurance coverage as well as payroll tax withholdings, training and performance evaluations. This eases a huge burden from our clients who may otherwise be responsible for these expenses if using an independent contractor.How has technology positively impacted your business?We have contracted with a company called ClearCare that offers a comprehensive system that we use to schedule and manage our caregivers. In addition, ClearCare offers a product called The Family Room. This provides family members with a secure access portal that allows them to always be in the know. They have access to schedules, the caregiver team, medications, invoices and daily details down to the tasks that were completed during each shift. In addition, they can add to-do items for the caregivers to complete over and above the initially assigned tasks. This is invaluable to our families who are geographically not able to be hands on.What are some of the changes you have seen in your industry in the past few years?We have seen a proliferation of new providers from startup mom and pops to hospital-based organizations. This is a very positive trend and will most likely lead to improved accountability f or outc omes. It is an exciting and definitely challenging time for all providers.What has been your most difficult challenge in the past year?There is no question that all of us have faced enormous challenges with the changes in the new labor laws and the elimination of the companionship exemption. With the overtime regulations it has become increasingly difficult to provide continuity and consistency of caregivers. So many of our clients suffer from some sort of impaired cognitive function or dementia and would definitely do much better with familiar caregivers. Unfortunately, overtime is not a luxury that most individuals can afford so it has become increasingly challenging to minimize the number of caregivers in order to meet our clients scheduling needs and yet conform to the new labor laws.What are some of the major challenges you see for your industry in the next 10+ years?Approximately 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day, which equates to almost 4 million/year. It is estimated that only 55 percent have some retirement and 42 percent of those have less than $100K. This means that almost half of retirees will be living on Social Security alone. It is a fact that it is more cost-effective to remain in the home when individuals just need a little assistance; however, it will be a tremendous financial challenge to both retirees and their families with such limited resources.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 15What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry?The trend in plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine is toward non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures which have improved a great deal over the past 20 years. The results of these treatments can rival that of some cosmetic surgeries, with much less down time and no need for general anesthesia. Procedures like CoolSculpting, which visibly reduces fat bulges without surgery, and Ulthera, which uses deeply focused ultrasound for noninvasive brow, face and neck lifting, are gaining in popularity. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? With the rebound of economy in Southwest Florida, we have continued to grow to meet the cosmetic medicine and surgery demands of our patients. We have increased our offerings with new lasers, noninvasive procedures and more providers to address these needs. We have added a full medical spa where patients can now receive eyelash extensions, massage and vaginal rejuvenation procedures.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?Honesty and integrity Telling patients what they honestly need or dont need is a basic tenet of my practice. I am not willing to do a procedure if it is not right or needed for that patient. I would rather turn them away than do something that is either too risky or not indicated. Patients appreciate that honesty and usually return in the future for something else they may really need. Availability I am always available to my patients at all times. I give them my cell number to call or text me if they have a problem or question in the evenings or on the weekends. Amazingly, I get very few calls. My patients only call when they have a real question or problem. I would much rather them call or text me the question than sit at home all weekend wondering what to do.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?We try to portray a very unified, clean and concise marketing image. My local marketing manager works closely with my employees and my website designers to ensure we portray a cohesive image.What will you base your success on for 2018?Continue growth of all aspects of the practice to fully utilize our new 7,600-square-foot facility. We want the surgery center and the medical spa to be booked completely to serve as many patients as we can in 2018.How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018?Social media has been growing each year in our practice. We started using Facebook as a way of communicating with and educating prospective patients. More recently, we have seen an increase in the use of Instagram. It allows us to post photos and videos in a more user-friendly way. We have stayed away from Snapchat due to the unsavory self-promotion we have seen from some plastic surgeons. Honesty, integrity and availability are key to successKent V. Hasen, M.D. Kent V.

18 SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?Product knowledge is the key to the rare coin, precious metal and jewelry business. Besides handling hundreds of millions of dollars in actual product, we attend trade shows and are very active in online communities that disburse data on all types of high end personal property. While building the business, and we are still building, we have strived for the highest levels of trust with our customers and vendors. Doing the right thing has become an overused cliche but in the coin and jewelry business you must live by Do The Right Thing or you dont achieve the level of a company like Gulfcoast Coin & Jewelry. If you have a business idea that you think will help you grow your company research the opportunity and if the numbers work, go ahead and execute. We opened Gulfcoast Auctions offering only 50 pieces of jewelry. Today we offer over 1,000 different auction items monthly, selling in over 25 countries.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? We see clients taking their business back to the brick and mortar, old-time, family-owned jewelry stores, because they demand product knowledge, trust and personalized service. Since the real estate bubble and bank crisis, people have been driven to hard assets. Precious metals soared for several years, however, prices have dropped dramatically due to a very strong U.S. dollar. At these low prices for precious metals, rare coins and diamonds, people are buying more precious metal products than ever before. Recently, several governments have suspended making precious metal products because they could not obtain the metals to make it, due to high retail demand. What will you base your success on for 2018? We would like to continue opening new stores throughout Florida. We feel our business model is unique in as much that no other business combines fine jewelry, diamonds and high-end time pieces, rare coin and precious metals trading, full-service international auction services and a bank vault depository for your valuables in each store. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? We live in paradise, and as baby boomers retire, we feel strongly they will continue to come to Southwest Florida and have a positive impact. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? When we see intelligence and open-mindedness in a candidate or employee who wants to excel in their career we train and support them 100 percent. Superior product knowledge and excitement to share that with our clients is the key. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? Our favorite coin is the Fugio Cent minted in 1787. Benjamin Franklin was behind this coin, and he had the wording Mind Your Business on the coin. We feel the same. With your finances, your health and family Mind Your Business. What is your superpower?Our passion for what we do. The passion for coin collecting has existed as long as coins them selves and I was bitten by the coin collecting bug. A true mark of global distinction, a GIA credential is a symbol of knowledge and trust. Denise has extensive education and training and that knowledge and practical skills translate to her love for gems and jewelry. What do you truly love about working here in Lee County?

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 19What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? It is a very exciting time to be in health care! The advancements in preventing, diagnosing and treating health conditions continues to improve at a rapid pace. Despite all the challenges we hear about in Washington, we still have the best health care and the best doctors in the world. Of the many changes on the horizon in the industry, the one that is most significant may be the change from a volume-based payment system to a value-based approach. The traditional way that hospitals and doctors received payment was based on the amount and complexity of services provided (volume based). Over the past few years, we have begun to see the shift in payments being based on quality, patient experience and efficiency in controlling costs (value). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has set a goal that 90 percent of Medicare payments will be value based by 2018. To help push this along, Congress passed the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) in 2015 with overwhelming bipartisan support. (98-2 in the Senate!) MACRA will fundamentally change the way Medicare pays hospitals and doctors by rewarding for quality and participation in value based payment models, and financially penalizing hospitals and doctors that do not move in this direction. One example of the shift to value-based care today is the introduction of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). Medicare introduced this program in 2012 as a way to encourage health care providers to focus on quality, patient experience, and efficient use of health care costs. For ACOs that demonstrate success in these areas, CMS shares savings generated with the providers. Millennium has been a part of the ACO program since 2013 and invested in our care teams to help manage the complete health needs of our patients. With this focus on the patient, Millennium has achieved national recognition as one of the top five ACOs in the country!Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Our incredible physicians, advanced providers and health care team. The foundation of Millennium is a physician based organization focused improving the health of our patients. We strive for a culture of excellence. Our focus on the patient engagement. We understand that our patients have a choice in choosing their health care provider. We are very focused on ensuring that our patients have the best experience from the time they make an appointment, to the office or hospital visit, to the ongoing care management to support their health and wellness. Our ability to connect our patients to the appropriate health care setting whether it be in our offices, other providers in the community, hospitals, home health, skilled nursing facilities, etc. As the primary care physicians for over 200,000 patients in our community, we welcome the incredible responsibility of managing the comprehensive health care needs of our patients.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Many times, the health care industry makes it so difficult on the patients. Going to see the doctor may not be very convenient and often can be an anxious time for patients, family members, and care givers. Waiting for an appointment or a test result only adds to the anxiety. With technology, we have seen tremendous improvements in the banking, travel, shopping and other industries. Consumers are used to doing research on the internet at all hours and getting immediate responses. Although making some progress, health care in general has not moved near as fast as other service industries. At Millennium, we are very focused on making health care easier for our patients. As patients become more involved in their health care choices (like they have done with banking, travel and shopping), there will also be the opportunity to become more responsible for key decisions that can improve the quality and cost of their health care. For example, using smartphones to respond to health reminders (e.g., taking prescription medications, ensuring to get their annual wellness visit), fitness programs, nutritional needs, will lead to healthier outcomes, better management of chronic diseases, fewer visits to hospitals and emergency rooms and lower costs to the health care system. What will you base your success on for 2018?As the health care system continues the transformation from a payment system based to volume to that of value, our success will largely be measured on the quality of the care we deliver, which includes patient experience, and our ability to ensure that the patient receives the care in the best possible setting. How are you using technology to improve your business? Technology is becoming a large part of health care. Its not just the state-of-the-art machines within the offices or our Imaging Centers. Its technology that impacts and changes the lives of our patients. Within the last decade all health care systems and physician practices were required to implement an Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system. In the last few years, we have seen where an online Patient Portal has taken the forefront. It allows for patients to manage their health information, message their Providers, refill prescriptions and view lab or test results. It provides 24/7 access to your provider and were seeing that once our patients access it that they truly do like the convenience it brings. Within the last year, Millennium has launched innovative initiatives to assist our patients and providers in their care including: Skip the Line Our Skip-The-Line feature allows patients to easily get an appointment at one of our Walk-in Medical Centers. Patients can visit our website, see current wait times and sign up for a time that is convenient for them. The technology will send a text when it is time for the patient to arrive, which cuts down on the wait times for patients. We know if our patients need to visit a walk-in that they arent feeling well and need to see a doctor quickly. Our job is to make it easier for them to get to the doctor. Online lab appointments We know our patients like to schedule their lab appointments online, which allows them to book appointments for times that work with their busy schedules, so we were happy to launch this new technology on our website earlier this year. Online registration / early check-in for appointments Weve also launched new technology that allows patients to check-in online before their appointment. Similar to how a customer may check-in early for an upcoming flight, the technology cuts down on paperwork and registration process in the offices. Patients are able to check right in for their appointment and from recent positive feedback we know our patients really like this added convenience! Tele-Medicine Millennium is currently piloting tele-medicine for how we can roll out this new service to our patients in the next few months. Tele-medicine continues the trend where if a patient needs to speak to a health care provider no matter if its at midnight you can reach a health care provider 24/7. Health care continues to change and patients want new technology and convenience that work for them. Technology will continue to be a large part of health care moving forward. Its a large part of our everyday lives now so it makes sense for it to be in the health care field. How are you growing and developing your employee skills?Growing and developing our employees skills is a core part of our business, but recently weve been looking at ways to streamline the processes for our team. Weve hired a director of health care learning and development for Millennium. Her role will be to foster employee talent and professional growth, as well as align all of the various training offerings under the banner of Millennium University. We are so excited about the launch of our Millennium University program for our team and providers. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? We are focused on always recruiting top talent to Millennium. We have a team that travels across the United States to recruit top providers to the Southwest Florida area to care for our patients. Our team also works with students who are looking for experience in the health care field with our goal being to hire them at Millennium upon their graduation from medical school or their residency program. Were also focused on hiring our veterans and placing them into roles within our organization. Our human resources department is consistently reviewing qualified candidates for positions within Millennium. Who is a mentor to you within your industry? I started my health care career 25 years ago at Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers. I had the privilege to work with Lalai Hamric, the CEO at the time. She always made sure that we kept the patient at the center of focus in this complex, demanding, and sometimes very frustrating, business of health care. She insisted that doing what is right for the patient should always be the foundation for how to run the business. Lalai passed away this past year, however, her mark will forever be left on this community.

20 SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year? Seasonal fluctuations continue to level off in Lee and Collier counties. Due to the consistent rise in the housing market in SWFL, the demand for remodeling is growing exponentially which has lead us to open our fourth showroom in Marco Island this year.What do you truly love about working in SWFL ?When I started the business in 1988, I never dreamed that it would be the company it is today in size and scope. Currently we have over 250 employees and growing. I am proud to continue to bring jobs into SWFL and to contribute to our local economy.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Service, quality and timeliness. Within the context of your current marketing, promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors? I have always been the face, voice and reputation of Cornerstone Builders. I put myself and my family in front of the public. We are not just a name and a fancy logo. Although I never thought of it as a strategy, we also rarely, if ever, use subcontractors. People can trust our workers coming into their home. We never require a deposit and warranty everything we manufacture as long as the customer owns the home. Our customers know that I am ultimately responsible for the final product. What will you base your success on for 2018?We will continue to put our trust and faith in God. He is in charge and all of our decisions are based on what Jesus would do. Sometimes we make mistakes, but when we do, we stay with the job and make it right. The job is completed when it is done to the clients satisfaction. At our weekly Thursday morning prayer meeting, we pray for all the needs of the company. We will celebrate our 30th anniversary in Southwest Florida in 2018, a milestone that brings with it enormous pride and one we are very grateful for. What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today? There are no shortcuts. Work hard, be honorable and learn your skill. Success at Cornerstone is when we do quality work in a professional manner, at a fair price and end the day with a fully satisfied customer. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? Clients are investing in their homes again. After significant research we now have the ability to offer our customers project financing. Clients can finance all or part of their project with options to have zero financing for 12 months or a low fixed rate for 8 or 10 years. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? Happy, satisfied customers. A customer who refers us to a neighbor or writes a nice review truly makes my day.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 21 What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?We have seen the development of new technology to treat veins with medical adhesive (VenaSeal) and the application of intravascular ultrasound to diagnose pelvic congestion syndrome, iliac vein compression syndrome, and pelvic vein obstruction. Additionally, we have continued to witness a surge of interest by non-surgeons adding vein treatment to their service line. This has led to a confusing landscape for patients who are seeking expert care for their venous health issues. We believe specialists should treat what they were formally trained to treat. Vein Specialists has responded to this change through continued dedication to physician and public education to increase awareness regarding venous disease, its manifestations and presentations, and the appropriate and ethical treatment of the disease.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? I believe that improvements in public education and awareness regarding the myriad presentations of vein disease will be ongoing and forthcoming. Regarding improvements of therapy, the most significant improvement in our treatment armamentarium in venous disease has been the FDA approved VenaSeal, a medical adhesive for the treatment of venous insufficiency. Although not currently reimbursed by insurance, we anticipate receiving a code for the reimbursement for VenaSeal in 2018. In 2017, we expanded our scope of services to include intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) as we saw a need among our patients. IVUS is the most cutting edge catheter based ultrasound technology which allows precise identification and measurement of pelvic vein blockage from within the actual veins. IVUS is used to diagnose and treat patients with signs and symptoms of pelvic congestion syndrome, iliac vein compression syndrome, and pelvic vein obstruction. We have already witnessed the importance of IVUS in diagnosing more central vein problems in patients who have not had complete relief from their previous vein treatments. I predict IVUS will be the most critical development in vein evaluation and catheter directed therapy since endovenous ablation was introduced in 2000.How are you responding to changes in the local economy? Vein Specialists has expanded our professional and support staff to meet the needs of our areas population growth through the addition of Dr. Patrick Nero in the Bonita Springs/Naples office and the addition of registered vascular technologists (RVTs) to the vascular lab staff.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?Expanding our team to include two board certified surgeons focused 100 percent on vein evaluation and treatment. Staying on the cutting edge of new treatments. Serving as a center of excellence and training center for other doctors. What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business?I would like to see the medical industry return to specialization in medicine and encourage physicians to practice what they are trained to do rather than branching out into areas they have little knowledge of other than the technical skills of vein access.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?We differentiate ourselves as the original vein specialists with board certified vascular and general surgeons focused 100 percent on the scientific and objective evaluation and treatment of vein disease. Our focus is to educate patients, physicians and the community regarding all aspects of venous disease. Whats your superpower? Our staff is our superpower. They are incredibly passionate about patient care and continually strive to ensure each patient has a positive experience. Our team likes to have fun with our patients and make the best of what otherwise can be an inherently stressful experience for patients. What will you base your success on for 2018?In 2018, we will continue to measure success based on our effectiveness at educating the community about the various presentations of vein disease. We aim to increase the awareness and recognition of venous disease as a medical condition rather than a cosmetic condition.How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Facebook? Twitter? Etc.We use social media as a tool to allow the community to get to know Vein Specialists beyond what they can find on our website. We want to give them a glimpse into our company culture and showcase our amazing team. You can find our Facebook page at Facebook.com/ weknowveins.Can you tell us about a new hire who will make a positive impact this coming year?With the addition of Dr. Patrick Nero to our team near the end of 2016, we have been able to fully staff our Bonita/Naples office and are now open five days a week. We are consistently feeling the benefit of his presence and are excited to be able to serve patients in the Bonita Springs/Naples office on a fulltime basis.

22 SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Tiffany McQuaid What accomplishment are you most proud of in 2017? I am most proud of our ability (as a boutique real estate firm) to overcome adversity and figure out a way to maintain strength in our marketplace. We were blessed to be nominated by Inman News (our Global Real Estate News Source) as Most Innovative Brokerage in the Country! In addition, we have pioneered the entire state of Florida in launching the first voice activated search for real estate through the Amazon Alexa, Microsoft Cortana and Google Home. These devices are quickly becoming a staple in our lives and it makes sense that people will soon be asking for assistance in a real estate search from them as well... Simply ask Alexa to open real estate (you may have to enable the Voicester skill on your app) and search all of Lee and Collier County with ease. Try it out, its super cool! We, as a company, hope to lead and better the industry by example as time goes on...How are you responding to changes in the local economy?We, as a company, tend to lead with the question of adding value. With that in mind, we have created a program called Snowbird Certified that provides additional education to our Realtors over and above the traditional schooling and continuing education. This designation we have created allows the client stress free and seamless relocation from the north to the south in providing everything they need to know about moving to Florida. It is about going further than just the real estate transaction, but assisting in supporting the clients needs during (what can be) a time of uncertainty coupled with loads of questions. The clients can be assured that whatever their needs, our team will assist them from start to finish.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?This is an easy one, without a doubt: gratitude, creativity and authenticity. I walk through my door every morning with an overwhelming sense of gratitude for being blessed with the best team in town. The creativity that permeates from my brain is truly a gift that everyone has embraced in my office, our true differentiator. Finally, authenticity, that is the acceptance of each one of us as we truly are and celebrating individual uniqueness. I have always been a believer in being true to you. Everyone else is already taken.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?As a company we believe in community outreach through sweat equity, and our in house marketing team collaborates to create, execute and/or implement some of the areas largest events. (i.e., Taste of Collier, Rockin on the Bay, Rockin the Point, Stonecrab Festival, etc.) This allows us an opportunity to bring the community together and give back using our skills and talents. Our Realtors are very involved in the execution and participation and have formed great relationships as a result. As far as a marketing strategy goes, we like to take normal everyday things and put a creative spin on our promotional ad/pieces to make it relatable and memorable.What is your superpower? Superpower? Imagination, period. My creative brain tends to see things in 3D-technicolor and that allows me to create concepts and ideas and see the end result. It then becomes a matter of semantics to implement. With that said, my strengths lies in internal drive, self motivation and tenacity. As we all have faced many obstacles, fears and failures in life, truly the greatest strength I have learned is bouncing back quickly and never, ever giving up as there is always opportunity on the other side of any obstacle! How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018? Facebook? Twitter? Etc.I was lucky enough to be involved in a meeting at Facebook Headquarters with the CEOs/owners of some of the largest real estate firms in the world along with the heads of Facebook and Zillow, so this question is topic forefront in my brain. As our industry continues to find ways for exposure of listings in the internet world, social media allows a platform not only for exposure of inventory, but also a huge tool for relationship building. Although most people dont like seeing a personal feed on Facebook loaded with business promotion and pushing properties, a Realtor who is aware will find and utilize tools currently available (or soon to be available) to make the connection with the consumer or their sphere of influence. The reality in real estate, or any form of sales, is people like to do business with those who they like and trust. Social media is a great catalyst to start the conversation and catapult the relationship if used appropriately.What will you base your success on for 2018?As a company, we will continue to keep a finger on the pulse of the future of our industry, but will focus daily on the present. We will continue to think outside of the box and find our own stamp on bettering the industry not only locally, but nationwide. We will broaden our vision for success, try our hardest to stay ten steps ahead, rest easier in knowing there is hope for tomorrow and sprinkle everything we do with a touch of innovation to ensure what we do shines and, most importantly, stands out! The clients can be assured our team will assist them from start to finish Tiffany McQuaidMcQuaid & Company Real Estate Services & McQuaid Marketing & Promotions WHO AM I?NAME: Tiffany McQuaid TITLE AND COMPANY: President, McQuaid & Company Real Estate Services & McQuaid Marketing & Promotions YEARS WITH THE COMPANY: 4 YEARS IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA: 15 NATURE OF BUSINESS: Real estate brokerage marketing and event planning EDUCATION: Youngstown State University BAYFRONT, NAPLES: 239-300-4880 COCONUT POINT, ESTERO: 239-498-4880 WWW.MCQUAIDCO.COM With over 10 MILLION of these devices in homes TODAY ...

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 23 What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year? There are always changes in real estate whether it be supply, inventory, demand or interest rates. The real estate market is very strong. If the homes are priced right and marketed properly, they will sell.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? The newest innovation is 3D glasses to walk through a home online and virtual home staging.How are you responding to changes in the local economy? The real estate market is always changing. The key is to have the foresight and anticipate the change before it happens.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Making sure every customer is 100 percent completely satisfied, never over promise, always over deliver and always focus on the clients needs. Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors? I feel I have my real estate marketing down to a science and will continue to experiment with different ideas as they become available. I love showing a client something that nobody else is doing.Whats your superpower? My superpower is the ability to make buying or selling a simple and somewhat stress-free process. I ask the right questions to buyers and sellers. I find the right home quickly when working with a buyer and get the right price for a seller. Another superpower is my market knowledge of 17 years of full time real estate experience in Southwest Florida. No matter what price range, neighborhood or area, I know it well. I help people make life-changing decisions on the biggest purchases of their lives. I feel I can be put in any real estate situation and come up with a game plan that will get the job done.What will you base your success on for 2018? Referrals from my current and past clients. The key is marketing to gain new clients. The referrals are key. When receiving a referral the client has a level trust with me before we even meet.How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018? I think social media is great for any business if used properly. It has helped grow my business.How are you using technology to improve your business? I always stay ahead of the curve. Any new technology I try and implement it into my marketing. New marketing ideas to many can become overwhelming as there are so many. I try them and see how they work. I also have a new website, www.joepavichjr.com, that is simple and optimized in every way to bring new buyers and sellers. How are you growing and developing your employee skills? I have two full-time assistants who care like I do. We are a great team and extremely focused on making buying or selling an excellent experience. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? Mostly by word of mouth and referrals. I look for integrity, honesty, focus, drive, ability to multi-task, ability to take constructive criticism, extremely hard working and always putting the client first.Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year? I have recently implemented an intern program which had made a positive impact. I have had three interns in the past two years and I love new ideas. I always make sure I cover every aspect in marketing. What do you truly love about working here in Lee County and Collier County? The lifestyle, proximity to beaches, tons of golf courses, boating, proximity to the airport and of course the weather.Who is a mentor to you within your industry? My Mom and Dad, who are great mentors to me. Referrals, customer satisfaction are key in real estate success Joe Pavich Jr.Broker associate of Realty World J.

Clients routinely entrust us with daunting objectives like these. And we wouldnt have it any other way. *Awarded by Lee County BIA 24 SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year? As with most industries, the shift to digital services and the online presence that retailers have presented the consumer have left them very empowered. From the comfort of your living room or your desk, you can shop, compare, negotiate and be as stern as youd like, as you have complete anonymity sitting behind that keyboard. However, when it comes to certain things, like buying or selling a home, owning a rental property or planning your next dream vacation experience, it is still essential for the consumer to have professional guidance and service regardless of whether it is online or telephonically. Hence the power of reviews and social media comments. Again, the consumer is extremely brave when he or she has anonymity from behind that keyboard. The most significant change is actually a constant: The consumers need and desire to talk with someone who is local and not in another state managing their vacation or rental experience. They want to know that the guidance that is being given is first-hand and not being read from a script. Online companies simply cannot provide the same or better level of service and knowledge as a company whose local team works, lives and plays here in our paradise. While we and other online companies grow, we still interact with each guest and owner personally. Our housekeeping and maintenance teams with their fleet of 50-plus vehicles ensure each guest receives the treatment they expect; the treatment they deserve. For Royal Shell companies, customer service is not just a buzz word that is part of some mission statement or core values that sits in a desk drawer. It is a calling, a way of life and a belief that our staff embraces from years of serving our clients, many of them multi-year repeat clients. We like to tell folks that with Royal Shell you can buy, sell, rent and vacation all under one shell.Whats your superpower? I learned a long time ago you can accomplish great things when you surround yourself with great people. I wouldnt call it a superpower but maybe a super-purpose. I enjoy seeing others grow and succeed. I enjoyed that with my first internet company, when we were paving the way in the early s. I enjoy it more than ever today.What will you base your success on for 2018? The satisfaction of our buyers, sellers, owners and guests will be the measure of our success. We base everything on showing our appreciation for their trust in Royal Shell. Also, our continued growth and investment in our community. In 1997, Royal Shell began with four employees. Today we have 160 and were celebrating our 20th anniversary of being in business in Southwest Florida. How are you growing and developing your employee skills? One of our core values is the belief that we must continually learn to keep an advantage. For our real estate team, we encourage advanced training from our industry associations and industry experts. When it comes to vacation rentals were bringing in trainers for guest services, customer service and our reservations staff. Were purpose driven and our trainers have worked with the Atlantis in Nassau as well as resorts in Las Vegas. Our goal is to always seek a better experience for our customers. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? For real estate associates, we look for individuals with experience, values and a proven track record. Were not a training ground for new agents. Our associates represent the finest in the business. Our rental team has a broad range of hospitality and real estate experience. We use online job boards and are always looking to hire from our local colleges. What do you truly love about working here in Lee County/Collier County? I get to work where people from around the world come to vacation. I love the variety of Southwest Florida from shopping on Fifth Avenue in Naples to no stop lights on Sanibel. Baseball, golf, fishing, boating, the beaches there is never a lack of opportunity to enjoy the area. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? I believe you either wake up inspired or you wait to be inspired. We wake up inspired and look for ways to take advantage of any business climate. Opportunity is always there to succeed it just changes the way it looks from time to time. I do find inspiration daily when we help families find their own place in our paradise. Weve helped buyers find a multimillion dollar beachfront compound. Weve also heard from families who have visited our area for years and share the memories of their childhood with their parents vacationing here. And now they want to keep those memories alive for their children. Thats the nature of our business and inspires us each day.What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today? Stay focused and just keep working. Its not what those around you are doing that will be responsible for your success. Take responsibility for your failures and successes. True success only comes from you and Ive never met a successful person who did it working 9 to 5.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 25What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?Contrary to the last six years of tightened underwriting guidelines, this year weve seen a much needed expansion of credit and underwriting guidelines. This has opened up the opportunity for homeownership to customers that may have been excluded in the past six years. This easing of underwriting guidelines combined with several down payment assistance programs that we offer has made the dream of home ownership a little easier for many.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry?Online tools for prequalification have made approval for mortgages faster and more efficient. And now the combination of financial advisors with the mortgage industry have combined the good sense to utilize property investments for personal portfolios. Innovation and staying ahead of the technology curve are critical components of a successful, modern mortgage company. In much the same way that Amazon Prime has revolutionized the speed and convenience with which consumers shop for goods, technology is changing the speed and ease with which consumers obtain a mortgage.How are you responding to changes in the local economy?Our focus has always been helping those in our communities achieve the dream of home ownership. In pursuit of this dream, we continue to add mortgage products that will help more borrowers qualify for a home loan. Whether its a bank statement loan in lieu of tax returns for a self-employed individual, a zero down VA or USDA loan or down payment assistance, our wide array of products help keep us ahead of the changing economy.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Commitment to helping those in our communities achieve the dream of home ownership. Consistently closing mortgage loans smoothly and on time. Hiring and retaining exceptional and professional loan originatorsWhat are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business?Since 2009, the pendulum swung too far in the direction of over-regulation and compliance. This over-regulation has added tremendous cost and time onto the mortgage process which ultimately gets passed on to the consumer. While much of the regulation was needed, some of it needs to be repealed in order to ease the burden on borrowers.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Our knowledge and experience set us apart from our competition. These qualities allow us to bring confidence to the home buyer and Realtors that the home loan will close on-time. Additionally, we now offer advance approval to our borrowers which effectively makes that buyer as strong as a cash buyer.Whats your superpower?Being able to see in the distance. Pr ojecting outcome.What will you base your success on for 2018?Continue to hire and retain knowledgeable and experienced loan originators who are committed to help those in our communities achieve the dream of home ownership.How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Facebook? Twitter? Etc.So important! This gives the ability to reach target markets in a click.How are you using technology to improve your business?We have leading edge technology to make the mortgage experience accessible and easy for our borrowers.

RISHI RAMLOGAN, MDCall for Your Appointment Today! 239-309-2680We understand your struggle. We have helped hundreds of patients get their lives back with weight-loss surgery. We support you through every step of the process, before and a er surgery. For your new direction in life, you need a positive attitude, self-discipline and support from friends and loved ones. Count on your team at Surgical Healing Arts Center in the Naples-Fort Myers, Florida area to help you reach and remain at your healthiest weight.www.surgicalhealingarts.com SURGICAL PRACTICE SPECIALIZING IN: BARIATRIC, BODY CONTOURING & GENERAL SURGERY WE OFFER: WEIGHT LOSS SOLUTIONS BARIATRIC REVISIONAL SURGERY LAPAROSCOPIC/ROBOTIC SLEEVE ANTI-REFLUX SURGERY POST BARIATRIC BODY CONTOURING SURGERY What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? It is very exciting that there will be more minimally invasive procedures for weight loss. For instance, the new swallowable Obalon gastric balloon recently came upon the market. This fascinating procedure requires no surgery or anesthesia and has helped many to lose weight who have failed many other previous methods. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? More local employers are providing bariatric (weight loss) surgery benefits in their health insurance benefits to help their employees stay fit. Furthermore, the cost of weight-loss surgery has become more affordable at $12,000 to $15,000. Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?1. Thanking our heavenly Father for our success! 2. Quality patient care treating your patients like family, as weightloss surgery is a lifelong endeavor and journey! 3. Quality employees to provide No. 2.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business?It is unfortunate that not all health insurances cover bariatric (weight loss) surgery and its tremendous lifesaving and life-enhancing benefits. Numerous studies have shown the immediate benefits that are seen in treating diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea. Our goal is to help our patients obtain the surgery despite not having insurance coverage for bariatric surgery. Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Our program! Its not just about performing the surgery, but THE SHAC (Surgical Healing Arts Center) PROGRAM. The pre-operative care and the life-long post-operative followups are required to ensure future success in battling this chronic disease called obesity. Furthermore, our practice also performs post massive weightloss body contouring surgery to help remove the excess skin. Our data has shown that compared to the national average, the SHAC Program has helped patients lose more weight and keep the weight off five years and greater.Whats your superpower? Our adage is that, One size does not fit all We use all modalities of weight-loss treatments to ensure the patients life-long success. From behavioral counseling to surgery, we can help each individual patient and dive deeper to understand their circumstances.Facebook? Twitter? Etc.Facebook is a venue used by many, including ourselves, to develop our practice and allow the patients to participate in its growth. We utilize Facebook for not only building our practice but also offer a private group that allows our bariatric patients to communicate with each other, allowing them to discuss their successes and struggles, setup exercise groups and do activities such as posting photos for Transformation Tuesday in an environment that is supportive of their journey. How are you using technology to improve your business? Our practice and company culture continually analyzes four things: (1) data and analytics (this yields information about our patients medical condition and personal needs) (2) clinical protocols (protocols and rules that use best practices to create a plan of care and minimize variability) (3) user experience, assessments and workflow management (we want to be efficient and effective (4) information integration (we are constantly assessing outliers to determine treatment and ongoing quality of care). Part of making good decisions in business is recognizing the poor decisions youve made and why they were poor. Warren BuffettHow are you growing and developing your employee skills?This has been one of our key areas of business development. We are designing an integrated training program where the staff isnt trained in isolation from the clinicians. This cross training has helped elevate both the staff and clinicians through a better understanding at all levels of our practice. We expect our doctors to know how to answer the phones and also expect our staff to have an ear for any patient warning signs. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? Over the last couple years weve had many of the top tier programs reach out to us for internship programs and surgical employment. These clinical training centers have recognized Surgical Healing Arts Center as an all-encompassing bariatric and general surgery center. We can take our patients from step A to Z and have found this to be an asset in determining treatments and on-going health needs. Plus, our patients become our family after spending so much time with us. Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year?We have recently hired two staff members who have had bariatric surgery. We think that having had this surgery, our patients and staff can share their experiences and help each other going forward. What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?Always remember that there are a lot of smart, caring, committed, professional health care workers who do not have D.O. or M.D. degr ees behind their names.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 27 ronto.com Perfecting Development Naples nest golf community Creating the Regions Most Exciting Communities, featuring Luxurious Homes with World-Class Amenities in Spectacular Resort Locations. COMING SOON! A Spectacular New Community on Central Avenue in Downtown NaplesPROUD DEVELOPERS OF:What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year? The amount of family buyers, particularly first-time buyers, continues to grow. Builders are finally trying to reach that segment of the market after having abandoned it due to concerns over lack of financing and the employment market.How are you responding to changes in the local economy? We are actively developing communities aimed at family buyers. Orange Blossom Ranch & Groves is a great example. Weve built an amenity package that is aimed at families with multiple resort pools, playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, a clubhouse with a great fitness center and its adjacent to an elementary, middle and high school. The floor plans are spacious and family-conscious, and its reasonably priced in the low $300s to $400s. Our goal for 2017 was to bring to market communities that serve what everyone agreed was the most underserved segment of the market the $300,000 to $500,000 segment. Orange Blossom accomplishes that in a meaningful way. Name the top elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Building a great team of employees and empowering them to get the job done right. Being disciplined when buying land and understanding its value to future homeowners. And listening to my father and other mentors. Theres a reason theyve been in business for so long. I take that responsibility very seriously. We also make a point to build strong relationships with suppliers, contractors, landowners, and brokers. Treating them fairly and with respect is paramount to the success of both sides of the coin. They are your partners in various business ventures; they need to have confidence that you will close a deal or bring a project to fruition. What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business? The permitting process in general needs to be simplified and streamlined. There are too many permits, inspections and fees. Some of these things need to be amalgamated and assigned to one discipline, one inspector.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors? We offer a wide range of products from very high-end condominiums to popularly priced single-family developments. We also market more than other builders/developers and dont lump all of our projects together. Each project has its own identity; you want to speak to that specific purchaser in that specific market. What will you base your success on for 2018? Delivering the Seaglass Tower in Bonita Springs and 624 Palm in Sarasota. Finishing those will be a great accomplishment. Seaglass Tower is a 26-floor, 120-unit high-rise tower being built within the Bonita Bay community. Its a wonderful addition to an already beautiful Bonita Springs community. How are you growing and developing your employee skills?Giving my employees more latitude to make decisions. That independence and responsibility will build the skillsets that are most valuable.Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year? Weve hired a construction manager and hes been invaluable for quality control and identifying potential issues during the construction process.What do you truly love about working here in Collier County? I love that its a smaller community that offers so much. This quality of life is pretty spectacular. I really enjoy the people I work with, a lot of them have been associated with us for years and theyre like family.

PRIVATE BANKHuntington Private BankSM is a team of professionals dedicated to delivering a full range of wealth and nancial services. The team is comprised of Private Bankers, who offer premium banking solutions Wealth and Investments Management professionals, who provide, among other services, trust and estate administration and portfolio management from The Huntington National Bank, and licensed investment representatives of The Huntington Investment Company, who offer securities and investment advisory services. Member FDIC. Huntington and Listen, Plan, Advise are federally registered service marks of Huntington Bancshares Incorporated. Huntington Bancshares Incorporated. What is the most significant change youve seen in your industr y over the last year?Investors have seen two major market declines since the turn of the century and are increasingly concerned about how they are positioned financially. They are looking for more transparency on fees and want to know that their advisors are truly looking out for their clients best interests. Portfolios customized to meet individual needs continue to trump one-size-fits-all model portfolios.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? The investment industry has seen rapid change in the past few years driven by new technology, increased transparency, and regulatory changes driven to promote trust and fairness. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? The local economy continues to grow and we are seeing more and more fulltime residents. Many times, this transition coincides with retirement, necessitating a review of their investment strategy. Our local team of experts is responding with tailored advice encompassing all aspects of wealth management including investments, financial planning, banking and lending.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Huntington Bank has been in business for over 150 years and has weathered many storms including the Great Depression. Our founder, P.W. Huntington, once said, In prosperity, be prudent; in adversity, be patient. Those words resonate through our investment philosophy today and our clients appreciate that approach in todays uncertain times.Whats your superpower? While not exactly a superpower, I would say empathy is a very important quality to me. The ability to understand what clients are experiencing, to be able to put myself in their position. Financial matters are very personal and can often lead to deeper discussions on family and lifes challenges. Clients like to know you are there for them and will look out for their best interests.What will you base your success on for 2018?Success to me is a well-balanced life and a happy family. In that sense, I am already successful.How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018?Social media, i.e., Facebook and Twitter, has transformed how people communicate and how they obtain news and information. Information now spreads at a very rapid pace. With that speed though comes the opportunity for misinformation to travel fast as well. Having a professional advisor who will not react emotionally or irrationally to this rapid flow of information is key to having a sound investment plan.How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? Huntington is a great place to work. Employees have the ability to grow professionally and are encouraged to learn new skills and to continuously improve the workplace. It is a natural fit for people who have a passion for what they do, are inclusive of others, and the drive to succeed. People with those qualities tend to find us and really connect with our vision, mission and values.How do you find inspiration in todays business climate?My inspiration comes from helping others. Theres nothing more satisfying to me than giving peace of mind to a worried client, especially in todays environment. What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?I would tell young people entering the work force today to brush up on their interpersonal skills. Being able to write a professional letter, send a thank you note, or eat a formal meal are necessary skills to have even in an increasingly informal society.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com SEPTEMBER 2017 29 What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?The demand continues to increase from consumers to eat healthier and support locally grown farmers. We want to be on the forefront of providing healthier options for them especially being in the seafood business. Not only do we stay committed to delivering the freshest seafood locally caught from local waters, we have put a stronger emphasis on utilizing locally grown produce to complement our dishes. From green beans and tomatoes, to corn on the cob and scotch bonnet habaneros, we want to be a locally owned company supporting local farmers.How are you responding to changes in the local economy? We are constantly challenged with finding ways to provide fresh seafood. There are so many variables when it comes to the industry like weather, closures of catching certain species and in the case of stone crabs the length of a set season. Because we live in a market that thrives on seafood being on the Gulf of Mexico, the demand is always there. We have brands that have become synonymous for having the freshest seafood. Even more today, when there is that desire for healthier eating options, we want to be able to meet that need as it increases. Whats your superpower? Its not a super power but its not for everyone to get up at 2:30 a.m. seven days a week to get our seafood orders in with our partner Island Crab Company. Having this fantastic partnership is truly one of our competitive advantages as we have first crack at the freshest caught seafood that was caught the day before and get it on our trucks and to our restaurants daily. It allows us to stand by our You Cant Fake Fresh marketing cornerstone message. What will you base your success on for 2018?Our founder Tony Phelan has a quote that goes, You can only catch what the Good Lord puts in your trap. As with every year, we hope that the upcoming stone crab season and the yearly blue crabbing are successful with our crabbers getting great days out on the water to bring in plenty of claws and crabs. We always look at our same store sales as a base for seeing our company growth and we always have the goal of having our same store sales continually better than the year before. I also look forward to our company expanding in the Florida marketplace as we add another Deep Lagoon Seafood restaurant in Lee County in 2018.How are you using technology to improve your business? Because we have multiple brands and multiple restaurants, it was a necessity to develop our own propriety software that ensures the appropriate products are used consistently in all recipes and aids in the daily ordering of product. Additionally, utilizing tools like NCRs mobile APP PULSE, keeps our entire team connected in real time on how the restaurants are performing and what items on the menu are selling better than others. This gives the advantage of modifying menus or specials and integrating fresh caught items almost immediately. Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year?We continue to invest in strengthening our supply chain. We added another fulltime crabber that will work exclusively for Island Crab Company and the seafood and crab needs of our restaurants at Phelan Family Brands. We have become known as The Place to get blue crabs in Southwest Florida and we want to make sure that if there are crabs to be caught, weve got boats in the water and crabbers who are committed to pulling them and helping us in our goal of bringing them from the water to the table.What do you truly love about working here in Lee County/Collier County/Charlotte County?I get to welcome the sun coming up every day with coffee in hand while I coordinate sending off the best catch from local waters into our restaurants. There is nothing better than seeing customers leave our restaurants after eating blue crabs or stone crabs or hog fish knowing we caught it, delivered it and cooked it. From the water to the table, that is satisfying to make happen and be part of.Who is a mentor to you within your industry? There is no question I appreciate all that I have learned in working with Jeff and Denise Haugland from Island Crab Company. Our partnership with them is like no other. They carefully built a company that has managed to not only expand and grow with us at Phelan Family Brands, but keep the same foundation of values and integrity of a family owned company the same as we are. It is something you dont find every day and another reason why we are successful.

30 SEPTEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? Development of autonomous vehicles. The U.S. car rental industry may very well be one of the early adopters of autonomous vehicles. Many drivers experience new automotive technologies for the first time in rental vehicles at Enterprise, we call them extended test drives. Enterprise Holdings fleet of virtual cars is well positioned to quickly and efficiently introduce millions of consumers to new fuel and vehicle technology, especially as transportation infrastructure and alternatives, including autonomous vehicles, evolve in the future. As a result, in late 2016, Enterprise Holdings submitted comments on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations Federal Automated Vehicles Policy. Among other things, Enterprise Holdings urged NHTSA to recognize the rental industry and fleet management operators as key stakeholders in the development of state and federal policies. As TheInformation.com news site reported in early 2017: Enterprise, a 60-year-old company that owns and rents more cars in the U.S. than anyone else, is gaining newfound attention in Silicon Valley and Detroit, judging by conversations with tech executives lately. The reason is simple: Enterprise is one of the few companies that can manage large fleets of cars at scale. Thats a skill likely to be in demand as more companies launch ride-sharing services using self-driving cars.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?Our adherence to a set of guiding principles established by our founder, Jack Taylor, when he started the business with a fleet of seven cars in the basement of a St. Louis Cadillac dealership in 1957. These founding values have served as the foundation for our growth and success for nearly six decades. As a privately held company, we are in a unique position to make decisions for the long term. Our philosophy is that business is a marathon, not a 100-yard dash. We approach new opportunities conservatively, always placing a higher value on the longterm impact on our business than on the potential for short-term gain. As the leading employer of college graduates, each year Enterprise hires thousands of smart, motivated men and women into our Management Training Program. This program teaches employees how to run a business and serves as our pipeline for future leadership. This promote-fromwithin culture is a driving force behind our success and our need to hire so many college-educated individuals each year. In fact, nearly all of the companys current senior management started their careers as management trainees.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Enterprise Holdings heritage is unique: We pioneered and developed significant market demand for convenient, affordable car rentals away from the airport right in the neighborhoods where customers live and work. That market segment then evolved into an insurance replacement business for consumers whose vehicles were in need of repair and, under the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand, grew into a robust neighborhood business that currently rivals the airport market. The acquisition of the Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental brands in 2007, as part of one of the largest acquisitions in car rental industry history, nearly tripled our companys airport U.S. market share overnight and enabled us to begin offering a diverse portfolio of brands to serve the unique needs of leisure and business travelers. Today, Enterprise Holdings three car rental brands consistently rank above the industry average for customer satisfaction at North American airports, and weve also taken the lead in market share at U.S. airports. We also continue to expand globally and establish our customer-service values at a growing number of airport locations worldwide. Enterprise Holdings diverse network now offers a total transportation solution at that includes extensive car rental services, as well as car sharing, truck rental, corporate fleet management and retail car sales.Whats your superpower? Our uncompromising commitment to customer satisfaction. That is the principle that has guided our company along our journey since the beginning, and it remains our goal today. Since 1957, we have focused on providing customers with a level of service that keeps them coming back to our flagship Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand as well as to our National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands.How are you growing and developing your employee skills?Enterprise Holdings network of independent regional subsidiaries has earned a reputation as a great place to work, offering an attractive mix of hands-on training; opportunity to advance; and a strong, values-based culture. The Enterprise Management Training Program helps new employees learn and advance their careers in a highly respected management development program. And their promote-from-within culture means significant opportunity for personal growth, professional advancement and performance-based compensation. Some of the best training in any industry is offered, teaching employees the skills needed to run a business and prepare for long-term success, including a thorough grounding in highly respected service standards for Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car customers. And employees are provided a chance to advance their careers at a faster pace than many other entry-level management employers.How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? Through a national recruiting strategy that is executed at the local level, Enterprise Holdings network of 200 talent acquisition specialists work diligently to communicate the companys culture of opportunity to job candidates. Enterprise Holdings recruiters remain active on campus, attending career fairs, facilitating seminars, coordinating mock interviews and working with student organizations. To find qualified candidates for our management training program, Enterprise also uses several online career resources such as job boards (CareerBuilder, Monster), job aggregators (Indeed, Simply Hired) and social media in addition to posting jobs on the Enterprise Holdings careers website, go.enterpriseholdings.com.
