MYERS, PINELLAS PARK, SARASOTA & TARPON SPRINGSmatterbrothersfurniture.com INQUIRE ABOUT COMPLIMENTARY IN-HOME DESIGN SERVICES roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYFiguring costsLet me start with a breakdown of comparative values. One trillion. If Im not mistaken, a trillion is made up of a thousand billions. Thats a lot of billions. A billion a single solitary billion is made up of a thousand millions. And a million? A million bucks isnt much in the long run, not at a mere thousand thousands. But itll get you a good weekend in Paris, thats for sure, or an ice cream sundae from the Royal Scoop in Bonita Springs for $10.02, with tax included and change to spare. When you figure costs, you should always look at the things you want right now and the things you may not want or ever see, even if youre paying for them. Say you want a good evening meal right now, so you sashay into Naples and wind up at Sea Salt. Youd better figure on paying $200 per person or more. But what if youve had hors doeuvres and dinner with wine, and suddenly (its a nice night for a cross-state drive, after all) you find yourself craving a room for two at the Breakers in Palm Beach? Well, friend, thats going to cost you. The place runs at least $600 a night, and thats just for a broom closet. You have some money in your pocket, obviously. So the next morning you decide you need either a glorious investment or another delicious expense. You consider buying the violin made by Arthur Catton Lancaster and used by Wallace Hartley for $1.7 million, but you reject the idea. You cant drive a violin, to start with you probably cant play it, either and you wouldnt want to take this lovely little fiddle on your yacht (cost for the Hatteras 70 Motor Yacht with two 1,600 HP CAT 32A diesel engines, about $5 million). Mr. Hartley, the bandleader, used the instrument to play Nearer My God To Thee as the Titanic went down. It tends to sink boats, apparently. Itll be another car, then, and Palm Beach County has all the sporty ones: say a Lamborghini for $200,000, a topend Porsche for roughly half that, or a Chevy Corvette for about $55,000. Maybe you just buy the three together, an automotive triptych. All thats fun toss in a house for a couple or $5 million (only a tiny fraction of a billion, after all) and itll be even more fun, but dont buy it near the beach. When your kid reaches 40 or 50, itll be underwater. So that settles that. Now, what about the things you dont want or need, or may not even see, even though youre paying for them? Bridges, for example. If you decide to build the Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway over Tampa Bay stretching about four miles long and 430 feet high, complete with 84 steel tubes that encase steel cables supporting the main span, youre going to pay $244 million at least you would have in 1987. In todays dollars that would be about $526 million a mere half-billion, or so. But how often are you going to use that bridge? Not to worry, it still has investment value. Even decades later travelers have to pay $1.25 to cross the Sunshine Skyway, and about 50,000 do every day. So were raking in almost $23 million a year, just from tolls. Such bridges probably exist all over the U.S. of A., along with other public investments some people use and some dont. Libraries, for example. Parks. Public education, which isnt cheap. The public schools budget for Palm Beach County last year was $2.31 billion thats 2,310 million, by the way and worth it, I hope. Lee County spent $1.4 billion, Collier spent $977 million, and Charlotte came in at a paltry $247.8 million. Im still good with those costs. Heck, Im even happy to pay $16 billion to $20 billion to fix the Everglades and Floridas entire water system from near Orlando south to Florida Bay. Thats the cost figured by the Army Corps of Engineers for the total 30-year package, known as the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. Id do it in two years, though, not 30. Probably save money and more than a few tourist businesses. But now Ive reached the limit of my spending tolerance. Because I hate the cost of the current wars. I dont want to spend another nickel on another grain of sand in Iraq or Afghanistan, and certainly not in a tangle with the North Koreans or anybody else no, sir. Though the numbers are slippery, the costs of Iraq and Afghanistan alone are ridiculous no matter who figures them: almost $5 trillion so far, according to Brown Universitys Cost of War project. Remember: A trillion is 1,000 billions, and each billion is 1,000 millions. For even a single trillion, therefore, you could fix the entire Everglades ecosystem at least 50 times. For $5 trillion you could fix it 250 times. What really bothers a cost-minded hound like me, though, is the waste of good blood money. At some point in the not-too-distant past, the death count alone for Americans reached 3,019 in Afghanistan, and 4,520 in Iraq. Thats 7,539 bodies shipped home in flag-draped caskets since 2002. Now look, people, thats just economically wrong. The human body carries about 1.5 gallons of blood, which is 12 pints. The cost of a single pint of redcell blood product now on the market runs in the $120 to $150 range. So by my scrupulous calculations, weve just thrown away 90,468 pints of good American blood. Taken at an average value, say, of $135 a pint, I figure weve squandered $12,213,810, right there. What a waste.

The Magnolia State is pretty much in the running for dead-last as compared to other states on issues of economic prosperity, educational attainment, lowest rates of poverty, health and wellness and racial progress; Alabama is generally reliable as close or second-to-dead-last on the same quotidian measures. If you live in Mississippi and look across the state line into Alabama, you recognize what you see. Both states institutionalized systemic discrimination against African-Americans. State legislatures codified secondclass citizenship for black people into the rule of law, social and economic policy, and social norms governing every aspect of racial relations, as in the use of public transportation and water fountains, for example. White people set the rules. Black people were expected to follow them or suffer the consequences. And we all know, there were horrific consequences. Intimidation backed up by the threat of physical violence against African-Americans was commonplace. I remember once reading a report from a survey conducted by Mississippis Department of Tourism that fear was the No. 1 reason more black people didnt visit the state. The post-agrarian promoters of the New South sought to overcome the regions backwardness and address its issues of racial injustice. But neither Mississippi nor Alabama was so inclined. Preserving our way of life was code for keeping black people in their place. Both states paid a price, failing to achieve the quality of life had state leaders been wiser, more enlightened, and chosen more justly. Their choices robbed the states of human capital and the capacity to compete economically as compared to other states. What Mississippi and Alabama did excel in was defending the indefensible, including racially motivated murders and discrimination, wage slavery, separate and unequal schools, denial of voting rights and corruption of the rule of law. It is why both states became notoriously bloody battlegrounds during the American Civil Rights Movement. White supremacists murdered and assassinated African-Americans and civil rights workers, burning and bombing more than 300 black churches, all with impunity. Birminghams 16th Street Baptist Church was the site of a bombing in 1963 that injured 14 and killed four young girls attending Sunday school. In Mississippi, three young men who had participated in Freedom Summer, a 1964 campaign to register black voters, were murdered. The horrific killings spurred Congress to pass, with Democratic support, The Civil Rights Act of 1964. But the Democrats were no saints on issues of racial justice. It was The States Rights Democratic Party, the Dixiecrats, who debuted the Confederate battle flag in 1948 to rally white supremacists and champion segregation. The approval of the legislation opened the door for Richard Nixon and the GOP to cultivate white southerners disaffected by the Democrats support of the bill, driving a stake into the heart of the Democrats Solid South. The GOP today owes its dominance in national politics to the South. It is the engine room of the partys right-wing extremism. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is from Alabama. In 1986, he was the U.S. Attorney in Mobile when the Senate Judiciary Committee rejected his nomination for a federal judgeship. Sessions had a tainted history of discriminatory attitudes and behaviors toward African-Americans that made his views racially suspect. They still are. Last month, Alabama Republicans chose Roy S. Moore in the GOP Senate primary runoff. During the era of George H.W. Bush, he was known nationally for his right-wing extremism and virulent, anti-gay views. Since then, he has been twice defrocked as an Alabama Supreme Court Judge for flouting the authority of the federal court system and for violating Alabamas canon of judicial ethics. In 2003, he defied orders to remove from under the dome of the Alabama judiciary building a two-ton block of granite inscribed with the Ten Commandments. He ordered it installed in the dead of night, much to the surprise of his fellow justices. Alabamans took no offense and re-elected him in 2010. He again was suspended for the rest of his term for instructing the states 68 probate judges to ignore a Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality. Moore has publicly stated that the First Amendment protects only Christians, 9/11 was Gods retribution for societys evil and Obama isnt an American citizen. The Democratic opponent Moore will face in December is Douglas Jones. Charles D. Pierce wrote in Esquire about Jones: In 2001, Jones convicted two men for the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham in 1963, one of the iconic white supremacist terrorist acts of that period. One of those bastards already died in prison and the other keeps getting denied parole. If youd rather be represented in the Senate by a lawless theocratic lunatic, rather than a guy that finally got justice for four murdered little girls, well, you deserve anything that goddam happens to you. If extremists like Moore triumph, welcome to the United States of Alabama.

Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.Tillerson should goIf Secretary of State Rex Tillerson resigned, how would anyone know? He has become the nations least influential top diplomat in recent memory. His relationship with the president of the United States is strained at best, he has no philosophy or signature initiative, he has barely staffed his own department, and hes alienated the foreign service. The former CEO of ExxonMobil has taken one of the power positions in the U.S. government and made it an afterthought. Who knows the truth of the NBC story that he was close to quitting last summer over clashes with President Donald Trump? But Tillersons strange press availability swearing his loyalty to the president is not the sort of thing loyalists usually have to do. The secretary of state dodged questions about whether he had, indeed, as NBC reported, called Trump a moron almost certainly the first time in U.S. history a Cabinet official has been asked about personally insulting the president he works for and apparently been unable, in good conscience, to deny it. Tillerson doesnt have an easy job. He works for a mercurial and bombastic boss who has a well-developed skill for humiliating his underlings. Even a practiced and slick diplomat even Henry Kissinger; heck, even Cardinal Richelieu would find the circumstances trying. But Tillerson is at sea. Hes an accomplished man who ascended to the leadership of a quasistate as CEO of ExxonMobil. As such, he had done plenty of work abroad. It was in business, though, not government. Unlike, say, James Mattis advising Trump on defense matters, this is not a professional guiding an amateur; its another amateur trying to school an amateur. Is it any wonder that it hasnt gone well? In a nationalist administration, he is a man without a country. He doesnt have a constituency in the foreign-policy establishment, in the media, in Congress or in the bureaucracy. Neither of the opposing dispensations in American foreign policy should feel vested in Tillerson. If youre a liberal internationalist who wants Trump checked, youd prefer someone better suited to the task. If youre a Trumpist who wants Trump empowered to transform American foreign policy, you want someone who is in sympathy with that goal.Tillerson has been on the other side of Trump on big issues like the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear deal. Theres no doubt that Trumps instincts need to be restrained and channeled. Thats different from trying to frustrate them, which is bound to run afoul of Dean Achesons maxim: The most important aspect of the relationship between the president and the secretary of state is that they both understand who is president. Tillersons diplomatic skills havent yet been tested on anything important. At this point, he probably fails a threshold test: Can he reliably be thought to speak for the United States government? The former ExxonMobil chief might imagine himself indispensable as a minder of the president. Yet Trump is now surrounded by generals who no one doubts are responsible and influential. If Tillerson left, the government would operate as before except with a chance thered be a secretary of state better suited to the role.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYjust beginning for a number of neighborhoods in Collier County. In Golden Gate, widespread roof issues are made glaringly obvious by the ubiquitous blue tarps stretched over house after house. Alongside the streets in front of many of those houses: piles of vegetation debris next to piles of soggy drywall remains, mildewed mattresses and ruined furnishings. A number of restaurants and small businesses near Goodland and Marco Island remain closed. And then theres the situation in Immokalee. Drive past the casino and youll see businesses with windows still boarded up. Keep going, and youll realize the vast majority of residents live in trailers and mobile homes. Many of them have blue tarps adorning their roofs. Some have walls and roofs that are simply gone. In all my years here, I have never seen anything like this in our community, said Rob DiLella, one of the owners of Robert of Philadelphia hair salon in Naples. Every fall, salon employees go on a retreat to build camaraderie and pump one another up for the coming season. This year, Mr. DiLella chartered a bus to take his team of 50-plus people out to Immokalee, where they spent the day at Immokalee Technical College to help organize and distribute supply donations. Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc on Immokalee, said I-TECH assistant director Aaron Paquette. Most of the families living in trailers have been displaced, or worse. Worse being that many are still living in those trailers with torn roofs, mold growing inside and some still remaining without power due to surges in the electrical system. One of the families has a son named Ricky, who Mr. DiLella learned about from one of his salon employees. He says Rickys story was his inspiration for getting his team out to help. Ricky is 4 years old, has Down syndrome and has undergone four surgeries in his short life, including two open-heart surgeries. His family was denied aid from FEMA. They are living in their trailer that had roof damage, with black mold now thriving in and on the walls, ceiling everywhere. Mr. DiLella said the family is concerned for Rickys health, given his previous hardships. But they have nowhere else to go. Picking up the pieces Since classes resumed at I-TECH on Sept. 21, students and teachers have been working tirelessly throughout the agricultural community. Construction students have been laying out plywood and covering roofs with tarps. The college has acted as a central donation point, with all kinds of donations including food, water, clothing, diapers, etc. coming in from as far away as Pennsylv ania and as close by as the Greater Naples YMCA. We realize this is just a Band-Aid on larger issues, Mr. Paquette said. However, hopefully we are providing families with some sense of normalcy until homes, lives, business and the community is whole again. Kamela Patton, superintendent of Collier County Public Schools, said I-TECHs role in the recovery effort has another benefit: Using the campus as a centralized hub for hurricane relief efforts and supplies to help our Immokalee families allows our seven other Immokalee schools to identify and refer families in need to I-TECH, while keeping their primary focus on teaching our students, she said. We are grateful to the community support that has come from all parts of our great country to help our students and families get through this tough time. In the early days after Irma, Mr. Paquette said, I-TECH staff and relief volunteers noticed a few familiar faces coming out to pick up free supplies that they would turn around and then try to sell to needy families. To remedy the problem, I-TECH set up a work order system for people in need to fill out request forms. Rickys 19-year-old sister is an I-TECH student. On the day Mr. DiLellas salon team was there to help, she was among several students who were driving around the community delivering supplies to families and individuals who had filled out forms, but who had no means of transportation to pick up relief items at the college. The teen said she believes in doing her part to help in the recovery because the community is so tight-knit. She and some of her fellow students have been a big help in the vetting process for distributing post-Irma donations; someone can almost always vouch for a family that submits a work order. Everyone knows each other in this town, she said. We look out for each other."

How to help>> With relief supplies pouring in to help Immokalee residents, the need for donations has shifted toward air conditioners and proper bedding.

Yes, friends, the clouds of glitter in the air can only mean one thing. Its almost time for Fantasy Fest here in Key West, and the bodies large, small, taut, squidgy, old, young and many nearly naked have already started arriving in droves. Maybe youve been stuck under a very large rock for the past few decades. If so, youre forgiven for not knowing what Fantasy Fest is. Allow me to explain. Begun in 1979 as a way of boosting an otherwise dull and deserted time of year in Key West, this 10-day adults-only festival has since morphed into the largest event in the Keys, and one of the most unique and popular of its kind in the country. Imagine Halloween and Mardi Gras got very, very drunk one night in late January and nine months later that beautiful union begat Fantasy Fest. To hear locals tell it, the event started out small quaint, even with early themes like Old Key West and Plays of Tennessee Williams. Over time, it developed a decidedly more adult attitude (most participants of last years Political Voodoo & Ballot Box Barbarians seemed to have been bused in from a campaign caucus where clothes are irrelevant, but silver body paint is ubiquitous). Its doubtful that founding member Joe Liszka could have foreseen todays current iteration of Fantasy Fest. Joe, who in 9 was busy serving as the president of the Tourist Development Association of Monroe County, spent his days wracking his brain for strategies to attract more tourists to the Keys in the off-season. Always popular during the winter months amongst tourists fleeing the cold, business dropped significantly after the weather became more pleasant north of Miami. The snowbirds flew back to their nests, so to speak, leaving empty hotels and bars and plummeting profits behind them. According to the official history of Fantasy Fest, Joe led fellow TDA board member Frank Romano down to Duval Street on Halloween and asked him to report what he saw when the twosome arrived at the quiet, uninhabited roadside. It turned out to be a trick question; Romano saw nothing, which was, Joe explained, precisely the point. The islands residents and shopkeepers had developed a distinctly European habit of boarding up their homes and businesses and leaving for vacation en masse during the scorching fall months of September and October. To Joe, there was no reason that Key West should conform to the typical tourist-driven template of high season/low season occupancy. Key West was sunny and strange all year round why should its visitors not take advantage of that fact all 365 days of the year? He felt the island needed an injection of fun, something exciting that would draw crowds and reinvigorate the community during what had become a decidedly dreary time to be in the Keys. Almost 40 years later, Fantasy Fest still celebrated during the 10 days leading up to Halloween has become the largest and most profitable of all of Key Wests events. Hotels, B&Bs and private rental homes sell out months in advance, with nightly rates skyrocketing in response. (During 2016s election-themed Fantasy Fest, a single hotel room was reportedly rented for almost $700, twice its yearly average rate of $350.) In the weeks leading up to Oct. 31, costume stores spring up seemingly overnight, their aisles overflowing with feather boas, fishnet stockings, masks, makeup and wigs. But for some annual attendees, prep begins far more than a few weeks before the festivals start. With many of the festivals events offering thousands of dollars in cash prizes, seasoned attendees begin work on their costumes six to eight months in advance, or more, with results ranging from Broadway-worthy ensembles to skimpy outfits bordering on obscene. Historically, Key West has been an oasis for some of our nations most dedicated drinkers. Indeed, during Prohibition, Florida remained the wettest state in the Union, maintaining its touristdriven economy thanks to regular ocean shipments of fish curiously shaped like bottles of bootleg liquor. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, drugs were sold on Duval Street with the kind of vocal salesmanship now relegated to Spring Break T-shirt hawkers. Though eventually the island was forced to clean up its act (thanks to a wonderfully devious scheme perpetrated by FBI agents dressed as karate enthusiasts), there exists today a common misconception that, during Fantasy Fest, the usual laws are suspended in favor of an agreed upon 10-day no holds barred celebration that would make Hugh Hefner blush. The truth, however, is a bit less exciting: on Friday, Oct. 27, and Saturday, Oct. 28, a barrier is established around a few blocks of Duval and its adjoining streets, creating an official Fantasy Zone, inside the perimeter of which revelers may carry open (plastic) containers of alcohol. Backpacks, coolers, water guns and replica weapons are banned for obvious reasons, while mounted officers astride a herd of formidable, glossyhocked police horses perform crowd control duties. Technically, public nudity is illegal in Key West, but during Fantasy Fest that law in particular seems to stretch to about a millimeter before its breaking point, much to the delight of participants (and, sometimes, to the horror of a few wide-eyed families fresh off a Disney cruise ship whose travel agent neglected to mention their wholesome vacation would coincide with the raunchiest time of the year in the Keys). Body painting studios pop up along the length of Duval Street with women ranging from nubile to decrepit lining up to have their torsos painted which, the Key West Police urge people to remember, still does not actually constitute wearing a top. Therefore, the city requests that all bare breasts (painted to appear as twin Basset hounds or otherwise) remain inside the designated Fantasy Zone. This years official Fantasy Fest themed Time Travel Unravels will begin with one of the events only PG-rated parties, the Goombay Festival. Spanning the weekend of Oct. 20, Goombay sees the historic neighborhood of Bahama Village turned into a kind of folksy, exuberant block party, complete with food and craft stalls, though the heart of the festival is undoubtedly the nonstop musical performances. Featuring a wide range of acts including reggae, funk and gospel, the stage at the intersection of Petronia and Fort streets becomes an inclusive dance party for the islands residents and tourists just beginning their Fantasy Fest vacation. Its a joyful two days, accented by the delicious smell of street meat and the promise of all the frozen drinks in hollowed-out fruit your little lush heart could ever desire. Of course, no Fantasy Fest is complete without its special brand of monarchy. For those unfamiliar with the symbolic coronation of the King and Queen of Fantasy Fest, youre in luck: everyone is welcome to attend the official Royal Coronation at the Casa Marina on Oct. 20. In true Key West fashion, the election of this years monarchy is less pomp and circumstance, more flamboyant fabulousness, with a two-hour stage show and appearances by local celebrities. Once crowned, the King and Queen (awarded for having raised the most money for AIDS Help during their campaign) will preside over the rest of the weeks parties, parades, galas and fetes. If altruism is your thing, swing by the USCGC Ingham, a Coast Guard cutter-turned-Maritime Memorial Museum, designated a national memorial to guardians killed in action in World War II and Vietnam. The crew is hosting an Escape Room party. On Friday night, guests can navigate the bowels of the historic ship while solving puzzles in an attempt to break Neptunes curse, thereby saving the entire world. Weve certainly accomplished less on a Friday night. Let the kids bask in the glory of their heroism, then leave them at home for a decidedly R-rated version of one of their favorite fairy tales. Taking it Off to See the Wizard: A Burlesque Parody will see Key Wests best burlesque performers team up with special guests bearing saucy names like Moana Amour and Cheeky Derriere, all hell-bent on subverting the classic childrens story by way of artful striptease. The show runs for six nights only at the Waterfront Playhouse, and after the success of last years Peter Pans Adventures in Naughty Land, its sure to sell out fast. Though not an official Fantasy Fest event, Sundays ever-popular Zombie Bike ride is certainly not to be missed. What started as a rag-tag bunch of weirdos careening down South Roosevelt in zombie makeup has evolved into a traffic-stopping, nation news-covered theme ride from East Martello to downtown Duval Street. Though the event has become less of a ride than a startand-stop, slow-moving parade of fantastically zombified riders trying not to FANTASYFrom page 1 ANDY NEWMAN / FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAUThe 2016 Fantasy Fest Parade on Duval Street.ROB ONEAL / FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAURevelers portraying U.S. Olympic athletes make their way down Duval Street during the 2016 Fantasy Fest Parade in Key West.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 NEWS A11crash into one another, bike traffic along the four-mile route usually decongests enough towards the end of the highway to allow for a friendly breeze or two. There are no limits or expectations for costumes; some riders look ready for their next scene on The Walking Dead, while others might smear some fake blood on their shirt and call it a day, but the more effort you put into your costume, the better, since families camp out in chairs along the way, cheering and filming. Its a unique spectacle to be sure, so tell friends out of town to keep an eye out you might just make the evening news. Oct. 23 starts out with a bang of a starters gun, that is when the annual Heroes and Villains Run/Walk 5K takes off from the Southernmost Beach Caf. Dress up as your favorite hero or villain, make your way to the finish line as fast as you can, and youll be in the running (pun intended) for prizes like funniest costume, most creative and more. The run ends, as all runs should, with a sunset beach party, after which the beach transforms into a pig roast. Forty-five bucks gets you access to a buffet chock full of Cuban classics like sofrito, yucca, tostones, picadillo and roast pork. Tickets for the luau can be purchased at www.keystix.com. On the other side of the spectrum, the unofficial but always titillating Kinky Karnival, now at the brand-new First Flight Island Restaurant & Brewery (301 Whitehead St.) kicks off at 8 p.m. on Monday night, with costumes required for entry and make no mistake, these are some serious fetishists. The longstanding tradition has resulted in Monday nights becoming an informal Fetish Night island-wide. Keep an eye out for pop-up BDSM parties (how many times have you heard that one at home?) and enjoy wandering around the Fantasy Zone for your first glimpse at just how far some people try to push the boundaries of I swear, officer, Im not naked. Oct. 24 offers up a whole range of festivities, including an animal-themed all-you-can-drink SPCA party, the official Fantasy Fest Poster Signing party, a Beach Bash featuring Patrick and the Swazyees, and of course, the always epic Captain Tonys Party in Plaid, aka the perfect excuse for having held onto those horrifying madras pants for all these years. For a more obvious thrill, theres also the Men of Lab are Tighty Whitey Party, featuring the all-male Adonis-like revue made famous by the Magic Mike movies. Dress code encourages sexy white underwear (not an oxymoron, contrary to what Cosmopolitan and GQ have to say) and tickets are limited. If it was good enough for national treasure Channing Tatum, its more than good enough for Key West. One of this authors favorite non-officially sponsored events is Tutu Tuesday at the Waterfront Brewery (201 William St.). This years theme is Tutu Prom, so bust out that awful three-piece suit or puffy dress, throw a tutu on it, and make sure you and your date get that prom pose down. Wednesday through Saturday are when Fantasy Fest really gets going, with multiple themed parties some official, some unsanctioned happening throughout downtown. Some of the legendary ones: Wednesdays Pet Masquerade, where a procession of costumed pets and their incredibly crafty owners make their way across a stage at the Casa Marina to compete for prizes; Wharfstock, where prototypical pirate hangout Schooner Warf transforms itself into a psychedelic love-child groove fest, complete with body painting contest; the 35th annual Headdress Ball on Thursday, where the phrase the higher the headdress, the closer to God gets tested for serious cash prizes; Seor Frogs ABC party, where anything but clothes gets you in the door (the other side of which bunnies from Nevadas most famous brothel are waiting, along with exotic dancers and cash prizes for the most creative costumes); an all-day, all-night street fair with crafts, food, and last-minute souvenirs; the 16th annual Living Art Expo, where the best human canvases are awarded thousands of dollars; a White Party, Red Party, Blue Party, Pink Party, Toga Party, Slumber Party, Kinky Couples Party, Glow Party, Pirate Party, Foam Party, Nerd Party, and Pajama Party; and, of course, the Dungeon of Dark Secrets party, which is exactly what it sounds like. There are also two massive parades: the first, the locals-favorite Masquerade March, happening Oct. 27, for which thousands of costumed pedestrians gather to parade themselves through downtown. And then, theres Saturdays pice de rsistance: The Official Fantasy Fest Parade, a confetti-throwing, band-booming, float-filled colorful masterpiece to end the festival on a very, very loud note. If youre still alive by Sunday, congratulations! May we suggest scraping yourself off the floor and attending the annual Fat Lady Sings Tea Dance at La Te Da. We have it on very good authority that yes, there will be a fat lady present, yes, she will sing, and that afterward, all of it, finally, will be over. At least, until we learn the theme for next year.

KTWO Radio in Casper reported that Johnson told police he had traveled back in time from 2048, explaining that the aliens filled his body with alcohol and had him stand on a giant pad that transported him back to 2017 although he was supposed to arrive in 2018. He also asked to speak with the president of the town. Instead, Bryant was arrested for public intoxication.Farm animals gone wildThe owners of a mischievous ass in Vogelsberg, Hesse, Germany, have been ordered to pay for damages after Vitus the donkey apparently mistook an orange McLaren Spider sports car for a carrot. When Markus Zahn left his $411,000 car parked next to a paddock on Sept. 16, 2016, he returned to find that Vitus had nibbled on its paint to the tune of almost $7,000 in damage. The donkey had insurance, but the insurance didnt want to pay, Zahn told the BBC. Vituss rap sheet also includes biting a Mercedes.OopsIn Romania, it takes more than foul weather or a damaged field to stop football. On Sept. 24, a match between Bistrita Brosteni and Vanatorul Dorna Candrenilor was abandoned just 58 minutes in after all the teams balls ended up in the nearby Bistrita River, according to the Hindustan Times. Bistrita was winning 2-0 when they ran out of balls. Fans suggested they might find the balls at the Bicaz dam nearby.Do not eatDoctors thought a 47-year-old postman in Preston, Lancashire, England, who complained of a persistent cough might have cancer, as he was a long-term smoker whose X-rays showed a spot on his lung. But when they removed the mass, the BBC reported, they found the long-lost Playmobil traffic cone the patient had received as a gift on his seventh birthday. He told doctors he had regularly swallowed the small pieces as a child and believed he had inhaled the tiny cone. Happy ending: After the toy was removed, the mans cough almost disappeared and his other symptoms improved.Corporate shenanigansThe Russian division of Burger King has asked the countrys Federal AntiMonopoly Service to ban Stephen Kings horror movie It from showing in Russian theaters because the clown character, Pennywise, looks too much like Ronald McDonald, and therefore the movie is advertising for McDonalds. However, the Hollywood Reporter noted, the movie opened in Russia on Sept. 7 and had already grossed millions of dollars by late September. A spokeswoman for the FAS, confirming that the complaint had been received, said, We cant be concerned with the content of the film, but the agency would determine whether it contained advertising or product placement.InexplicableIf youre already shopping for your 2018 calendar, Metro News recommends you dont overlook the Carponizer Carp Calendar, which features beautiful carps with attractive women.

One of the friends was suspicious when he saw a wall in the home dedicated to military service, but didnt remember that Adams had been in the service, the Great Falls Tribune reported. That friend left before the move was complete, but the rest of the group loaded about $40,000 worth of belongings into a U-Haul, requiring two trips. Later that evening, the true homeowner of the burglarized house called police and reported the theft, and through U-Haul records police were able to track Adams down. He was charged on Sept. 28 with burglary and criminal mischief. Bureaucracy in actionJuana Escudero, 53, of Alcala de Guadaira, Spain, has been dead since May 13, 2010. Except shes still very much alive. FOX News reports that a Malaga, Spain, woman died on that date who shared Escuderos full name and birthdate. As a result, Escudero was pronounced dead by the government, which has given her headaches ever since. For instance, she cant renew her drivers license or go to the doctor. Finally, in April 2016, she tracked down the actual dead woman in Malaga, and in September of this year, she petitioned the courts to open the grave to prove that she is not the dead woman. She even offered to do a DNA test. On the governments computers I am dead, Escudero said, but for the banks I am alive and kicking.

That they bought it just before Hurricane Irma hit was both a blessing and a curse. We ended up giving away about a thousand pounds of chicken salad, between emptying out their supplies before the storm hit and then quickly loading up and giving away what they received just after the storm when they discovered they were among the few places that had power, Mr. Clarke said. They fed sheriffs deputies and any other first responders as well as the workers who came in to help restore power. They also sent food out to shelters and feeding stations. Everyone was making hot meals, but it was so hot out, Ms. Clarke said. All I wanted was a cold chicken salad sandwich. Apparently, a lot of other people felt the same way. They also invited in 50 kids from Youth Haven and let them order whatever they wanted, thinking that the teens rarely get to choose what they eat.Now that things are relatively back to normal, the couple hopes people who havent been there yet will come in and try some of the 13 varieties of chicken salad thats made fresh daily, along with other goodies like egg salad, pimento cheese (regular or spicy), broccoli salad, grape salad, mac and cheese, a turkey club or a BLT with chicken salad or pimento cheese.Nonprofit groups can book the restaurant for meetings at no charge, say the Clarkes. Platters of food can be ordered (there is a charge for that) but it isnt mandatory for groups booking the space. And theres free WiFi, too. Theres a paint party scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26. Come on in and paint a Halloween scene with the folks from Vinos Picasso and enjoy a Chicken Salad Chick style dinner. Cost is $30 and reservations are required. Check it out on the restaurants Facebook site. The restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday at 11180 Tamiami Trail N. (just north of Immokalee Road). COURTESY PHOTOChicken salad shares a plate with egg salad and pimento cheese at Chicken Salad Chick, where everything is made fresh daily.

BEHIND THE WHEELThe Bentley of SUVsWell suspend any notion of this being a consumer-grade SUV right at the beginning. After all, with a $235K base price, the Bentley Bentayga cost as much as seven Ford Explorers with enough left over to buy a Mitsubishi Mirage. But when a vehicle is the fastest SUV on the market, and also the most luxurious, its not about being practical. Its about being the best. The design is unconventional. Its not ugly, and its absolutely memorable. In many ways it feels like abstract art. After all, many crossovers and SUVs employ classically attractive designs that are pleasing to the eye like a nice landscape painting that will complement any room. But the Bentayga is a collection of many shapes and sizes with a less cohesive theme. In fact, the only unifying element seems to be premium packaging. It permeates in everything from the headlight detail to the fit of the lower body chrome. It creates a vehicle that always stands out in a crowd and sparks conversation. And thats what someone will want when spending as much on a vehicle as a comfortable house. In fact, stepping inside the Bentayga feels just like entering a palatial home. This is a world of wood, leather, wool and polished metals. Plastic feels like an endangered species. Its only found on heavy trafficked items like control buttons that would feel odd or wear quickly if they were anything else. This level of detail is part of why the Bentayga can start to justify its price tag. Two-tone leathers feature the contrasting colors stitching (optional) to make sure its a fully coordinated package. The speaker covers and map lights feel like jewelry. There are even special edition clocks handcrafted by Breitling. This option will easily push the price tag over the quarter-million mark, but that seems like an extra badge of honor for owners. Its hard to choose a preferred seat because all of them feature the highest quality cow hide with Bentleys signature diamond pattern stitched into every armchair. The driver is in command of the full electronic package that handles everything from the touchscreen infotainment to adjusting the ride height. But the Bentayga was clearly built with the idea that the owner might never sit up front. If the rear bucket seat package is chosen, they can be electronically adjusted more ways than many other cars drivers chair. Theres about as much leg room as a Range Rover. Plus, the atmosphere back there is independently adjustable through its own wireless touchscreen interface. All this opulence caries a lot of weight, and there needs to be an engine that can handle it all. So, while most vehicles would easily be sufficient with 12 cylinders displacing six liters, Bentley also adds two turbochargers. It creates 600 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Those two figures combine to make the Bentayga feel Ferrari-like fast while also confident in carrying its own weight. Another big part of the luxury equation is the eight-speed transmission. Its operation feels seamless so that some of the shifts arent even felt exactly whats expected from a vehicle of this caliber. While the Bentayga is a tall crossover/SUV, the suspension employs all the adjustable heights and damper setting to make sure it feels like a sedan on the road. This will undoubtedly appeal to some people who are tired of wrinkling their silk pants as they kneel in and out of lower-riding limousines. But the other side of all these suspension adjustments can create a highriding vehicle with locking differentials on the standard all-wheel drive system. It suggests that with meaty tires and a fearless owner, this can be a true offroad SUV. Practicality is not the aim of the Bentley Bentayga. If speed and luxury were the only elements on a wish list, then the Audi Q7 or the Porsche Cayenne could suffice. Both vehicles share some DNA with the Bentley, and both could be in the same garage for less than the price of one Bentayga. But theres a mystique about having a flying B lead the way. A proper Bentley doesnt announce its opulence from the tailpipes. But the right one leaves a lasting impression on everyone from those who see it on the streets, to those lucky few who sit behind the wheel. And the Bentayga nails it. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Titled Community Responsiveness for Collaborative Action and coordinated by the FGCU College of Education, the conference takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Cohen Center ballroom on the FGCU campus. Attendance is free, but registration is required and can be completed at www. fgcu.edu/childrenshealth. Each year, the conference aims to reduce stigma by increasing a general awareness of mental health disorders in children and youth, according to Diane Kratt, an FGCU instructor and student-teaching coordinator in the College of Education. The conference also creates opportunities for all stakeholders to talk, collaborate and champion for childrens mental health, she added. Small-group sessions are designed for educators, mental health providers, students, social services workers and parents. Several community-based organizations will also provide information about their services. This years keynote speaker is Rajni Shankar-Brown, associate professor and the Jessie Ball DuPont Chair of Social Justice Education at Stetson University. As a social justice teacher-scholar, I am committed to building and nurturing empathy and promoting mental wellness, both in terms of prevention and response, Ms. Shankar-Brown said. In her keynote address and her workshop session she will address a variety of topics, including global-national-state-local equity issues, socialemotional development, trauma-informed care, empathy, culturally responsive competence, resilience and the importance of collective responsibility and engagement focused on promoting positive mental health in children and youth. Mental health is inextricably intertwined with equity issues, she said. And mental wellness awareness, advocacy and action are vital to the advancement of social justice. Several Southwest Florida organizations help FGCU put on this event. This years primary sponsor is the David Lawrence Center for mental health and addiction recovery in Collier County. We feel it is critical to continue raising awareness and advancing evidence-based care regarding the vitally important social and emotional challenges that face todays youth, said Scott Burgess, CEO of the center. Research demonstrates the importance of early identification and intervention with childrens mental health issues. Effectively addressing the needs associated with these issues enables children to live in wellness and achieve their full potential. Continental breakfast will be served, and lunch is available for purchase on campus. For information about registration, donating toward conference expenses or earning continuing-education credits, email Ms. Kratt at firstname.lastname@example.org. SHANKAR-BROWN

ThankYou 4 4 A R PET TALESStress less BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickTaking a pet to the emergency hospital is something none of us wants to do. Its scary and stressful for you and your dog or cat. Weve been there more times than we like to think about, and we have some tips to help you cope. We hope you wont ever need to use them, but tuck them away in the back of your mind just in case. Protect yourself when handling a sick or injured animal. Even the most docile dog or cat can bite when in pain. Keep a muzzle on hand or ask your veterinarian to show you how to safely tie one using a scarf or tie. Be patient. Your pet wont be seen in the order of arrival. Animals who are most unstable will be seen first. We do them in order of medical need, says our friend and colleague Dr. Tony Johnson, an emergency and critical care specialist at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine. If I have a hit-by-car and a dog with diarrhea, even if the dog with diarrhea has been waiting two hours, the hit-by-car is going to get seen first. The only time someone jumps that line, he says, is if theyre bringing in a pet to be euthanized.Be prepared to wait as little as five minutes or as long as six hours. It all depends on what other cases are there or come in while youre waiting. If you think about it before you leave the house, grab a book or your iPod in case youll be there for a while.If possible, have someone go with you or meet you there. You may need help getting your pet in and out of the car and into the hospital. And its always good to have someones hand to hold while youre waiting. Designate a single person to communicate with the veterinarian, so he or she doesnt have to repeat information to multiple family members. Take notes or record the conversation on your smartphone so you can refer back to it. Dont forget your wallet in your mad rush out of the house. Most veterinary hospitals wont treat your pet without proof that you can pay for care. Your regular veterinary hospital might do that if youve been a client for years they know where you live and that youre probably not going to skip town but an emergency hospital isnt in that position. It sounds avaricious, but there are not too many emergency hospitals that are going to do something on a handshake, Dr. Johnson says. ERs usually see people once. They cant separate out the people who are a risk of not paying from those who arent. Theyre not trying to be greedy. Know when to go. Some things are obvious. Take your pet to the emergency hospital in the following situations: Allergic reactions Any animal bite Bloated belly Bloody diarrhea Difficulty breathing Distress from excessively hot or cold temperatures Eye injuries Frequent or projectile vomiting Heavy bleeding Ingestion of a toxic substance, such as antifreeze, human medications or snail bait Seizures Serious trauma, such as being hit by a car Straining to urinate or defecate Sudden lameness Unconsciousness or collapse Venomous snake or spider bitesIf youre not sure, well, we recommend erring on the side of caution. Like their counterparts in human medicine, veterinary emergency clinics are expensive, but sometimes the cost of a visit is a price worth paying for peace of mind. And when a visit saves your pets life? Priceless. Pets of the Week>> Andrea is a 4-year-old min pin mix who is as well-behaved as she is adorable. She gets along well with other dogs and wants to be someones devoted companion. Her adoption fee is $75. >> Harley is a 1-year-old domestic shorthair mix.

Seventeen years ago, in fact a lifetime ago, I had a live-in boyfriend who kept trying to talk me into adopting a puppy. Cmon, hed say, Puppies are so much fun. Lets get a puppy. I refused not because I dont like dogs my ex-boyfriend was right, dogs are fun. But, theyre a lot of work and 17 years ago I was working two jobs and my son was still young. The boyfriend was busy too; we lived in a small apartment and we were rarely home. Neither of us had any business taking on the responsibility of a puppy. Ultimately, my boyfriend agreed and after giving up on the puppy idea, he had a running gag that what he really wanted was for us to get was a pony hed always wanted one. One day, when he joked for the umpteenth time that we should get a pony, I said, How about we adopt a kitten and call her Pony? And thats how Pony the sweetest kitty in the world got her name. After 17 happy years, I lost Pony to old age two weeks ago. In all honesty, I probably waited too long to take her to the vet for the last time. Her little body started failing last spring her thyroid got wonky and even with twice-daily doses of meds, she kept losing weight. The vet also suspected pancreatitis and cancer. She had surgery. She just kept getting worse. I had to let her go. So many of us have been there its one of the most difficult, heart-wrenching decisions Ive ever made. Her litter-mate and twin sister, LaLai, is still with me and my husband (both cats outlasted the previous relationship and I got custody good thing we never got an actual pony, right?) and LaLai is still in pretty good shape for her advanced age. And whenever Im asked how Pony got her name, inevitably the next question is how I ended up with not one, but two cats. When I decided that I wanted to adopt a kitten, I called my good friend Terry, the executive director of the Humane Society Naples at the time. Ive always loved black cats and because of superstition, they have a lower rate of adoption, so I told Terry that I was looking for a black kitten and that she already had a name Pony. Terry happily called me the next day, Ive found your Pony. He explained that a pregnant cat had been hit by a car. A Good Samaritan who found her by the road brought her in. The veterinarian at the humane society performed a cesarean section. Her four prematurely born kittens were saved and so was she. But because of her injuries, she was unable to nurse, and the kittens were being bottle-fed by volunteers. Ponys only a few weeks old, but if you can feed her with a bottle, shes yours, Terry said. He even said he would bring her to me but instead of bringing Pony to my apartment, he suggested we meet for happy hour. He didnt have to twist my arm. We met at one of our favorite Chinese restaurants we loved the bar there because they served the most delicious (and potent) cocktail called a Head Hunter it was filled with way more rum than fruit juice. It was an early February evening when Terry and I met in the parking lot of the restaurant and I was anxious to meet Pony. Lets go in and have a Head Hunter first shes safe in her carrier in my van. He didnt have to twist my arm. We went inside and enjoyed our Head Hunters and got caught up. When we were done, Terry offered to buy me another Head Hunter. I was feeling fairly relaxed and my mood was fabulous when we went out to the van to meet Pony but when Terry opened the door, I wondered if I was seeing double not because I was overly tipsy, but because there were TWO black kittens in the carrier. Before I could say a word, Terry said, Now dont worry about the other one, he said. I just brought her along to keep her twin sister company on the ride. Theyve been through so much together that they hate being separated. But, again, dont worry just decide which one is Pony and Ill take the other little baby kitten back to the shelter. By the way, the other two kitties from the litter were adopted together. So, the sweet, adorable, homeless kitten-sister you dont pick will be taken back to shelter and, hopefully, adopted someday. But, seriously, dont worry about it. By this point, I was practically sobbing, Give me BOTH OF THE BABY KITTIES! I wailed. He didnt have to twist my arm. We took the carrier inside the restaurant to show the twin black kittens to our friend, the owner. When she asked what Id name them, I told her one was Pony, but I didnt have a name for her sister. She suggested LaLai she said the name meant lucky in Korean dont Google that, Im not sure its true, but I believed her and the name stuck. I also dont know for sure if the Rainbow Bridge actually exists, but I choose to believe it does and thats where Ill find my sweet, little Pony someday. h m d L h p stephanieDAVIS email@example.com MILA BRIDGER / COURTESY PHOTOStephanie Davis with sister kitties LaLai and Pony.

JA honors outstanding businessmen BY CARLETON CASESpecial to Florida WeeklyWhen I reflect on todays business professionals, I think of the people and organizations that stood behind these individuals over the years, helping prepare them for future success. As a thirdgeneration native of Southwest Florida, I am passionate about enhancing business in this region and I believe that local professionals should look toward younger generations with the intent to prepare them to be the business leaders of tomorrow. As a long-time supporter of Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida and an active member of its board of directors and the 2017 Business Hall of Fame Collier County Advisory Board, Ive had the opportunity to see the impact Junior Achievements valuable lessons and learning opportunities have on our youth during their formative years. Ive developed a great appreciation for the local business leaders, volunteers and supporters who come together to offer such an influential program to our students. I have been involved with Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida since the early 1990s, working alongside business professionals with a similar passion for education and free enterprise. The outreach and number of programs available to students have grown dramatically over the years, and now hundreds of community leaders come together each school year to bring lessons on work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy to more than 10,600 students throughout Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. The work of Junior Achievement and its community partners helps our youth build a solid foundation for their futures, instilling positive business ethics and preparing them to make valuable contributions back to our society when its their time to enter the workforce. Honoring two local entrepreneurs for their professional accomplishments and commitment to the community, Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida will host its 2017 Business Hall of Fame Collier County event Thursday, Oct. 26, at The Ritz-Carlton Beach Resort. Throughout the evening, Junior Achievement students in attendance will have the opportunity to interact with local business professionals, gaining real-life experience designed to enhance professional communication and etiquette skills. During the dinner and awards ceremony, Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida will induct laureates Edward Staros, vice president and managing director of The Ritz-Carlton Resorts of Naples, and Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes, into its Business Hall of Fame Collier County. BUSINESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017A30 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM A BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comSOUTHWEST FLORIDA BUSINESS import is doing its best to continue digging roots in the area. The Grand Rapids-based Lake Michigan Credit Union recently signed an agreement to acquire Naples-based Encore Bank. LMCU already has a presence in Southwest Florida, with two locations in Naples and one in Bonita Springs. Encore Banks six Florida locations and over $400 million in assets will be absorbed by LMCU. We are delighted that Encore Bank has agreed to join with Lake Michigan Credit Union, to help strengthen and expand our presence in the growing Southwest Florida region, said Sandy Jelinski, president and CEO of LMCU. The deal came to fruition after Ms. Jelinski noticed Encore Bank while vacationing in Naples a few years ago, according to a LMCU spokesperson. Ms. Jelinski heard from a number of Michigan residents who were members of the credit union in Naples who said they hadnt found a comparable place to suit their banking needs. Encore was founded in 2010 in Naples and operates as a community-focused bank, with offerings among residential loans, business and corporate banking services, and commercial loans. Their community outreach involves working on boards of various nonprofits in Southwest Florida, according to their website. Lake Michigan Credit Union has been in business since 1933, expanding into Florida in July 2015 with a Bonita Springs office. That was quickly followed by a Naples location on Collier Boulevard and a third several months ago on Immokalee Road. A Fort Myers office opened most recently. The Encore Bank acquisition provides greater convenience and economies of scale for LMCU partners and clients, according to Don Bratt, a senior VP of marketing at LMCU. Encores six locations in Southwest Florida fit perfectly from a footprint standpoint, Mr. Bratt said. None of Encores locations are in close proximity to LMCUs four Southwest Florida branches. Lake Michigan Credit Union provides a full-range of financial services, from high interest-bearing checking accounts to personal loans and mortgages. They also made the decision to expand into Florida based in large part on the significant number of existing LMCU members who call Florida home during the winter season.

A32 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGIt may be time to take a shot at investing in whiskey I think it is amazing when you can pair investing with an expertise or a passion you have in your day-to-day life. Which is why I was so excited to learn that investing in whiskey has increased in popularity over the last several years. Can you really make money buying this hard liquor and how can you start investing in this alternate asset class? For those of you not familiar with whiskey, it is an alcoholic beverage that has been around for over 600 years and is produced around the world. To create it, grains such as barley, corn, rye or wheat are combined with water. The resulting mash is distilled in a still, which is basically just a huge copper-lined pot. The resulting liquor is then aged in casks typically oak which impart complex flavors into the whiskey before it is bottled. The age of the whiskey is the length of time it sits in the casks. There are many types of whiskey at many different price points. A single malt whiskey is a beverage made from a specific distillery created from one particular malted grain. A blended whiskey is created by combining two or more single malt whiskeys. There are also single cask whiskeys which are bottled from one specific oak cask. A bourbon is a whiskey made from at least 51 percent corn and is aged in new charred oak barrels (which gives the bourbon its unique color). And scotch is produced in Scotland, aged for at least three years, and is produced from malted barley.Several characteristics of whiskey make it an interesting investment asset. First, there is limited supply of the product. Most high-end whiskey is aged for 12 years or more, which means that even if a company wanted to increase supply of a particular beverage, the finished products would take over a decade to produce. Second, the demand for single malt whiskey, especially single malt scotch and single cask whiskeys, has outpaced very limited supply. Overall, the market for whiskey has steadily increased by around 1.5 percent per year over the last few decades. However, the high-end whiskey sub sector of this market has grown much more quickly. In 2002, 47 million bottles of single malt scotch was consumed. In 2016, that number grew to 114 million.Finally, there is an expertise needed to invest in whiskey. Atmospheric conditions, impurities in the environment, age, types of casks utilized and distiller skill all have an effect on the finished product. It takes years to understand how these factors affect the beverage in order to understand which whiskey will have a premium taste and thus increase in value.In the last few years, whiskey investors have done well with average prices for high-end bottles increasing by 35 percent in the last year alone. Further, a company called whiskeyinvestdirect has even enabled investors to speculate on whiskey by buying the product before it is even done aging in order to sell hopefully premium product when the aging process is complete. But there are definitely substantial risks in investing in whiskey. The first is already starting to play out an increase in high-end whiskey supply. Just as large beer manufacturers are buying micro-brews, large spirit companies are buying or expanding smaller whiskey and scotch facilities. While the finished product wont be ready for a decade, with so much product expected to be produced I would think that the price of the beverage would be negatively affected down the road. In addition, while whiskey is clearly a hot beverage today, there is no guarantee that it will be so in the future. Like in the wine world where Merlot wines were extremely popular for a while and then faded, there is no guarantee that whiskey will continue its high popularity for decades to come. So while there are risks to investing in whiskey, I think it is a fine way to diversify a portfolio. And if it doesnt work out, you wont have to look far for help in drowning your sorrows. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com Encore Bank will convert its brand to Lake Michigan Credit Union of Florida after the deal closes. The companys staff will be absorbed into the LMCU system as well, with longtime Encore Bank CEO Tom Ray staying on as regional president of LMCU of Florida following the acquisition. The deal, an allcash offer by LMCU, is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018. Additional financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Encore has strong leadership that will help guide and grow our overall business in Florida, Mr. Bratt said. Banks and credit unions typically dont mix. Thats because credit unions are nonprofit entities that uses the status to provide lower interest rates on loans, higher savings rates on bank accounts, and their customers are technically members who own a piece of the union. Banks are forprofit entities that are owned and controlled by shareholders, whose declared earnings are paid back to stockholders. The similarity is credit unions and local community banks in particular offer a higher standard of personal service, as well as similar offerings of checking and savings accounts, mortgage services, ATM locations, and more. Ms. Jelinski said Encores dedication toward the customers needs stood out to LMCU as it looked for ways to expand in the Southwest Florida market. With LMCUs already budding presence in the region, acquiring Encore was a natural fit. We admire Encores high-level of personalized service, focus on improving our communities, and the commitment they have to always doing whats best for their customers ... its the same model we live by every day. This is an exciting opportunity for both organizations, our collective customers, and our dedicated teams of bankers. Encores six local branches will bring LMCUs reach in Florida to 10 locations, with no overlap in service or region. The credit union has over 40 locations in its home state of Michigan. We are excited to join the LMCU Team, said Mr. Ray. We are extremely proud of the relationships we have built at Encore Bank and I am convinced this partnership will significantly benefit our customers and the communities we serve. LMCU is a state-chartered credit union and the largest in Michigan, with a staff exceeding 1,000. With the Encore Bank acquisition, its assets exceed $5.2 billion, as well as over $9 billion in serviced mortgages. To learn more, see lmcu.org or encorebank.com.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 BUSINESS A33 I began in Japan in 1933 as a division of an automatic loom company. The Model AA sedan was my first production car, debuting in 1936. Soon after, I was spun off as a stand-alone company. My production was halted temporarily following World War II, but I was back in business after that. A 4x4 utility vehicle was an early success, but even bigger was a model some might mistake for a Mexican beer. Ive made more than 33 million vehicles in North America. Few know Im also involved in housing, financial services, biotechnology and forestry. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Refinancing BasicsInterest rates have been extremely low, historically speaking, for many years now, and lots of people have taken advantage of that, refinancing their mortgages. Rates have crept up a bit over the last year or so, but with the benchmark 30-year fixed mortgage rate recently near 4 percent, many can still save thousands of dollars by refinancing. When you refinance, you get a new mortgage on your home, with your lender paying off your previous loan. (You may actually refinance with the same lender, though you dont have to.) Refinancings typically involve a lower interest rate and smaller mortgage payments, but some opt for a shorter-term mortgage, resulting in somewhat higher payments on a home that will be paid off sooner. When you shop around for a better deal than the one youve got, assess the many mortgage costs involved, such as the origination fee, discount points, the appraisal, the credit report, processing, title insurance, and the escrow fee. You can research available loans and interest rates at bankrate.com and other sites. Consider what points, if any, you might pay. A point is equal to 1 percent of the value of your loan. Points are paid upfront when you close the loan and permit you to buy a lower rate. They can make the most sense if you plan to keep the home and loan for many years.If you can get a new mortgage at a rate thats at least 1 percentage point lower than your current rate, you may reap enormous interest savings over 15 to 30 years, depending on how much you borrow.In some refinancings, you can actually increase the amount of your loan by taking out extra funds perhaps to pay down credit card debt or make home improvements. Be careful with this cash-out tactic, though your valuable home equity will shrink, and cash-out interest rates can be higher. In order to be offered the best interest rates, youll want to have or build a solid credit rating. Pay your bills on time, and avoid excessive debt. Dangerous InvestmentsIn the early 1980s, when I was in my early 20s, I knew very little about stocks. A guy called me, saying he was a vice president at a well-known investment company and he had an opportunity for me a great stock that would make me a lot of money. That was the first stock I ever bought. Two months later, I called the investment company and found out that the company Id invested in had declared bankruptcy; I had lost all my money, and the guy who had called me no longer worked for them. I did not know anything close to what I know now. Now I can do some fundamental and technical analysis of stocks. These days I read charts and pay little attention to fundamental data, as I am working on day-trading for a living R.R., Richmond, New HampshireThe Fool Responds: Beware of any cold calls from brokers pushing stocks and other investments. Great opportunities are not peddled that way. And think twice before day-trading, too, as its very risky. One study found that 80 percent of active traders lost money and only 1 percent of them could be described as predictably profitable.We favor long-term investing and fundamental stock analysis, studying companies revenue, earnings, profit margins, debt and cash levels, competitive advantages and so on, instead of trying to draw meaning from charts of stock-price movements. Electric DividendsDont let its name confuse you: Emerson Electric (NYSE: EMR) isnt a utility. Founded in 1890, it is primarily an automation solutions provider that serves nearly every industry you can think of. The company operates another big segment commercial and residential solutions which provides appliances and services related primarily to heating, air conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration. Its market value was recently north of $40 billion. Emerson has had to deal with sluggish industry conditions for quite a while, which has resulted in a contraction in sales for the company. Yet in its most recent quarter, it turned things around, enjoying 10 percent sales growth and remaining largely consistent with what executives had hoped to see. Automation solutions are gaining in popularity, and Emerson believes that growth there and in the commercial and residential solutions market should accelerate into 2018. (A strong foothold in automation means Emerson already has a presence in hot markets such as the Internet of Things.) If that proves to be the case, then Emerson could be in line to rebound from weakness, and that could add share-price gains to the dividend income that investors already receive from the stock. The companys dividend recently yielded 3 percent, and it has been increasing its payout annually for more than 60 years. (The Motley Fool has recommended Emerson Electric.) Based in Phoenix, Im the second-largest recycler and waste disposer in the U.S., with a market value recently near $22 billion. I serve 14 million customers in more than 2,700 communities via more than 30,000 employees, 340 collection operations, 201 transfer stations, 193 active landfills, 67 recycling centers, eight treatment, recovery and disposal facilities, 12 saltwater disposal wells and 69 landfill gas and renewable energy projects across 41 states and Puerto Rico. I once shared a corporate parent with AutoNation before I was spun off. My stock has advanced more than 160 percent over the past decade. Who am I? (Answer: Republic Services) Earnings SeasonQWhat is earnings season, and when is it? W.S., Worcester, MassachusettsAPublic companies (those with publicly traded stock) are required to report on their earnings and financial condition in three quarterly 0-Q reports and in an annual 0-K report for their fourth quarter. They can structure their fiscal year as they want, and while many companies end their years at the conclusion of December, others choose the end of March, June or September.Earnings reports are typically issued a few weeks after the end of the quarter, so gobs of American companies release their reports from early January through February, from early April through May, from early July through August and from early October through November. These are the four earnings seasons. Theyre of interest to many investors because they offer new, fresh data on companies, and analysts and commentators will often issue revised opinions on companies after earnings reports.Stock prices can also rise or fall following an earnings report, when results are better or worse than expected. For best investing results, learn to read and understand financial statements yourself and keep up with your holdings earnings reports.***QAre there any index funds that are focused on the world outside the U.S.? T.C., Tulsa, OklahomaAThere sure are, offered by many companies. Vanguard, for example, offers its Vanguard FTSE AllWorld ex-U.S. Index (VFWAX, VEU), covering the whole world market except the U.S., while its emerging markets index funds (VEMAX, VWO) focus on developing economies, which can grow rapidly while being riskier. Theres also the Vanguard European Stock Index (VEURX) and Vanguard Pacific Stock Index (VPACX), among other possibilities, and the Vanguard Total Bond Market II Fund (VTBIX) gives you global bonds.

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays community amenities popular with buyersTower 2 contracts remain strong If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-ahalf-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular community clubhouse. Not only will it be a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but it will also be the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse, which is currently under construction, will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet caf, a gifts and sundries shop, and a state-of-the-art 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 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, stated Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 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 many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the fall and will coincide with the anticipated completion of the first residential tower, which is 90 percent sold. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to recently release Tower 2 earlier this year, said Lodge. Currently, the number of contracted residences in our 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. 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 Gulf 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 open-air fitness center. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site 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. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com. Above: Kalea Bays clubhouse has a lounge that opens out to the adults-only pool.

The environmentallyfriendly new town arising northeast of Fort Myers off State Road 31 is part of what made it possible for Florida to complete the largest preservation land purchase in state history and establish the 73,000 acre Babcock Ranch Preserve. There was never any question that nature would play a starring role in daily life at Babcock Ranch. With a mission of creating a town that would be a perfect neighbor for the preserve, planners have woven sustainability right into the infrastructure. From the Babcock Ranch Solar Energy Center that powers energyefficient homes and businesses to the 50 miles of trails for exploring the 9,000 acres of shared natural spaces that run through and surround the town Kitson & Partners is creating a whole new model for smart, sustainable growth. And, while the town is brand-new, it is the next chapter in an already rich history which you can see celebrated all around town. Take a stroll through Founders Square and you might notice that Crescent Loop is located at the apex of B street a nod to the Crescent B that branded cattle that grazed here over the past century. Stop by Slaters Goods and Provisions and youll learn about Bo Slater, the cattleman who worked at various Babcock family ranches for 57 years. Babcock Ranch is designed to nurture social as well as natural connections. You wont find any gates here. Its a real town with homes within walking distance of shops, restaurants and school. Front porches situated more closely to the street, pocket parks, neighborhood gardens and the buzz of activity at Founders Square all add up to a classic hometown experience where you can once again get to know your neighbors. The classic styled homes along broad sidewalks harken back to simpler times, but below the surface Babcock Ranch is all about the future. The unprecedented technological infrastructure electronically coordinates energy, water, transportation and safety systems. High-speed fiber-optic equips ever home and business with extraordinary bandwidth supporting lightning-fast data speeds, mobile apps and global connectivity to free Wi-Fi allowing residents to be as connected with the outside world as they want to be. It is this surprising melding of modern technology and timeless hometown charm that is the defining characteristic of this innovative new town that will ultimately include 19,500 homes, nearly 50,000 residents and 6 million square feet of commercial space. And whenever it is time to unplug, nature is just outside the door. I believe people want ways to connect with nature, to leave everything else behind and recharge, said Syd Kitson, Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. Babcock Ranch is all about the great outdoors. Living in a town with half of its total area dedicated to green space, residents can walk out their door and truly immerse themselves in nature without leaving their neighborhood.

Ms. Fennelly and her husband, author Tom Franklin, had just published the critically acclaimed The Tilted World, their collaborative novel set during the 1927 flooding of the Mississippi River. It was a big novel that took us four years, she says. (It involved) a lot of research. There were a lot of high stakes. If it failed, it would not have been good for our marriage. It took a lot out of me. She thought shed immediately begin another novel, but instead, was floundering. I kept not writing. At least, thats what I maintained. I kept saying to Tommy, Im not writing.

Seal Press. 288 pages. Hardcover, $26. At once sports memoir and empowerment handbook, this feisty and engaging how-to is bound to attract a lot of attention. The author, a Vero Beach native, broke the glass ceiling in professional football in a variety of ways. She moved from being a championship performer in womens professional football to playing for a mens professional team to becoming linebacker coach for the NFLs Arizona Cardinals. They said such a thing couldnt be done and that the boys club would not accept her, but Jen Welter made it happen through a die-hard attitude and relentless self-improvement. Along the way, she became Dr. Jen, with a Ph.D. in psychology. This book builds upon her work as a coach. It is a master plan for being limitless. Though directed at women from all walks of life, it has plenty of powerful advice for men as well. The bite-sized chapters oscillate between vividly drawn scenes of major challenges in Ms. Wel-ters life and the attitudinal and behavioral adjustments necessary for her readers to reach their highest aspirations. At 5 feet and 2 inches, Ms. Welter would never be big, but she would find the way to play big in sports and in life. That means taking risks. It means learning to enjoy the pains of perseverance. It means never giving up.A recurrent graphic motif from chapter to chapter puts key concepts into sharp focus. Each chapter begins with something that looks like a gummed label. Here the author provides a terse thematic overview of the chapter. Another part of the motif is a series of boxed and shaded mini-essays that boil down the chapters concerns. Sometimes these shaded areas contain a series of bullet points. Chapter titles tend to be essential truisms that have the energy and memorability of mantras for Ms. Welters students. What Makes Us Different Makes Us Stronger, Once Its Been Done, It Cant Be Undone and When Its Us Against Them, We All Lose are examples of the kind of readily applicable aphorism with which the coach beats the drum of selfawareness and self-improvement. The heart of the book, for most readers, will be Ms. Welters story-telling. One key narrative is about her small size and her concern about being too small to earn a place on the Mass Mutiny womens professional football team. She relates how she handled the insecurity and played her way onto the team. She discovered, as well, that one could manifest a presence much larger than ones physical dimensions. She also abandoned a one-dimensional view of her destiny. She learned that she didnt necessarily have to choose between this OR that goal or image, she could be both this AND that. Here and elsewhere in the book, Ms. Welter bemoans the lack of financial support for womens professional sports and the financial sacrifices she and others had to make in order to help a team survive and be competitive. Sometimes salaries barely existed, nor did money for suitable travel and lodging. Because practice and travel were so time-consuming, other sources of income were not available. The author and her teammates often had to come up with ways to keep the team afloat. One very sad chapter involves the mistake the future coach made in stepping into a marriage more out of insecurity than out of genuine love. The kind of abuse she received was not physical, but it was still quite traumatic. In the end, she rediscovered her inner strength and abandoned the debilitating relationship. For the most part, however, Ms. Welters key episodes show how she found the ways to steel herself against misfortunes, turning frustrations and temporary failures into successes. Much of this resilience connects with her ability to really listen to other people, to make it clear how she would be there for them. As she developed such skills as a teammate, it became obvious that she had the makings of a coach. As she looks back over the ups and downs of her sports career, Ms. Welter injects a sense of humor into events that seemed far from humorous at the time. Her candor about personal matters is infectious. Her desire to share what she has learned the hard way, through experience and study, comes through loud and clear.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY with me. Instead of starting some big, long novel, I was writing down little tiny thoughts, quirky memories or overheard conversations, things that stuck with me, though I couldnt tell the reason why. I kept waiting for them to add up to something. Then one day she had an epiphany: What if they are something? What if they are small somethings? she thought. I realized that I was writing, but in a form I didnt recognize. She decided to call those small somethings micro-memoirs. Thinking of the term helped me realize how I wanted to move forward, she says. Maybe I was writing a book of them.Small, complete thingsMs. Fennelly got the idea for micromemoirs from micro-fiction (also called flash fiction or sudden fiction): small, brief, self-contained pieces that can run anywhere from a couple of sentences to a couple of pages. She says short-story writer Lydia Davis was a big influence. What she decides is worth writing down is amazing to me, she says. For example, theres Ms. Davis short story titled Samuel Johnson is Indignant. Heres the whole story: That Scotland has so few trees. And theres An Example of the Continuing Past Tense in a Hotel Room, which reads in its entirety: Your housekeeper has been Shelly. The longer you look at it, the funnier it becomes and the more you appreciate its genius, Ms. Fennelly says about Ms. Davis stories. If it had been in a paragraph, maybe it wouldnt strike us as so wonderful. She was able to clear out the surrounding noise and dignify it with white space, this quirky little thought that claimed its rightful grandeur. Other influences Ms. Fennelly lists include The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon, the haiku of Basho and the very short stories of Stuart Dybek, specifically in his collection titled The Coast of Chicago. Shed never heard the term micromemoir before she started using it, she says, but she doesnt want to claim she invented it. It seems a logical term people should be using, if they werent, she explains. Her stories were not fragments, though she thinks other writers are doing interesting work in that form. What she was writing felt like very small, complete things, she says. She embraced them. Ultimately, she says, I decided this form could allow me the pleasures of all my favorite genres: the extreme compression and charged abbreviation of poetry, the narrative drive of fiction and the truth-telling of non-fiction. I think I was trying to see what would happen if I took my various literary parents and made a hybrid child. The result: Heating & Cooling: 52 Micro-Memoirs ($22.95, W.W. Nort on), released Oct. 10.A return to SanibelAs part of the Sanibel Island Writers Conference, Ms. Fennelly will give a reading at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, at BIG ARTS and sign books afterwards. Shell be followed by New York Times bestselling author/keynote speaker Alice Hoffman, who just published The Rules of Magic, a prequel to her cult classic, Practical Magic. The event is free and open to the public. Ms. Fennelly will also teach a workshop, Build Me a Hummingbird of Words: Tiny Texts to those registered for the conference. Presented by Florida Gulf Coast University and now in its 12th year, the conference brings in a wide variety of authors, editors and agents to teach classes and speak on panels. This years lineup includes essayist Sloane Crosley, singer/songwriter Frank Turner, novelist Kevin Canty, essayist and New York Times columnist Steve Almond, novelist John DuFresne, novelist (and Marco Island resident) Ann Kidd Taylor and New York Times bestselling author Nathan Hill (who lives in Naples). Ms. Fennellys Heating & Cooling is being well received and has earned praise from writers from Richard Ford to Richard Russo. Leslie Jamison, who wrote The Empathy Exams, calls Ms. Fennellys brief memoirs vital, surprising, alive and as funny as hell. In another blurb, bestselling novelist Ann Patchett says, Each entry is both insightful and precise, a perfect pearl of memory. They run from one sentence to no longer than four pages long and highlight various moments in Ms. Fennellys life: her childhood, school days, professional life, life with her husband and children. The one called I Come From a Long Line of Modest Achievers reads: Im fond of recalling how my mother was fond of recalling how my great-grandfather was the very first person to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge on the second day. A series of moments from Ms. Fennellys marriage runs through the book. In fact, Married Love is the opening micro-memoir: In every book my husbands written, a character named Colin suffers a horrible death. This is because my boyfriend before I met my husband was named Colin. In addition to being named Colin, he was Scottish, and an architect. So you understand my husbands feelings of inadequacy. My husband cannot build a tall building of many stories. He can only build a story, and then push Colin out of it. Later in the book, theres Married Love, IV: Morning: bought a bag of frozen peas to numb my husbands sore testicles after his vasectomy. Evening: added thawed peas to our carbonara. She has an eye for the absurd, for those telling, little moments that make up a life and build memories. Some are humorous, some are moving. Others are heartbreaking. Im not interested in the idea of a memoir, my rags-to-riches story, she says. Im not interested in the story of achieving success. Thats not the most interesting thing to me. Whats most interesting, she adds, is the little moments that we think dont matter, but end up defining who we are. She sees them as a kind of Chuck Close portrait. Each little square is its own little thing (in his work), she says, but if you step back, you see the whole portrait. In her micro-memoires, she says, You see all these little pieces of my life. Im a girl in some, an adolescent in some, a grown woman in others. Some are of me as a mom or wife or professor or just a human. To see all these little tiny bits of time, to see these colors, if you step back, they do form the portrait, the portrait of me. As a poet, Ms. Fennelly is comfortable using an economy of words while also stitching them together in surprising or unlikely combinations. (For example, she writes: Whats a kiss but two eels grappling in a cave of spit? Best not to overthink it.) Working small is liberating because its not as intimidating. If you spend four years writing a novel, youre in trouble if it doesnt work, she says. But if you write a micro-memoir and it doesnt work, its not that big of a deal. You simply throw it out and write another one. There are such low stakes, she explains. Ms. Fennellys book tour takes her not only to the Sanibel Island Writers Conference which she calls my happy place and claims to have attended every year I wasnt pregnant or breastfeeding but also to the Miami Book Fair (Nov. 18) and various cities in Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. Shell teach a five-day poetry workshop at the Palm Beach Poetry Festival in midJanuary. When people ask what a micro-memoir is and she explains it, they inevitably say, I want to try one. No one ever says that when Im writing poems, she says. This is not intimidating to people People feel that they can dabble in it.

CELEBRATE FREE FGCU lecture series presents Iraq veteran turned poet and memoiristAward-winning poet and memoirist Brian Turner will present a public reading and discuss the complexities of crafting art from memory on Friday evening, Oct. 27, at Florida Gulf Coast University. Admission to The Palace of Memory: An Evening with Brian Turner is free, and all are welcome. An Iraq War veteran, Mr. Turner has published two poetry collections, Phantom Noise and his debut, Here, Bullet, which was a New York Times Editors Choice selection and winner of the 2005 Beatrice Hawley Award, the 2006 PEN Center USA Best in the West award and the 2007 Poets Prize, among others. His work has been published in National Geographic, The New York Times, Poetry Daily, Harpers Magazine and other media. Mr. Turners 2014 book My Life as a Foreign Country: A Memoir retraces his war experience pre-deployment to combat zone, homecoming to aftermath combining recollection with his imaginations efforts to make reality comprehensible. Across time, he seeks parallels in the histories of others who have gone to war, especially his taciturn grandfather (World War II), father (Cold War) and uncle (Vietnam). Through it all, he paints a devastating portrait of what it means to be a soldier and a human being. Tim OBrien, author of the bestselling Vietnam War novel The Things They Carried, has said Mr. Turners book ranks with the best war memoirs Ive ever encountered a humane, heartbreaking and expertly crafted work of literature. A resident of Orlando, Mr. Turner earned an MFA from the University of Oregon before serving for seven years in the U.S. Army. He was an infantry team leader for a year in Iraq with the 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division. Prior to that, he deployed to BosniaHerzegovina with the 10th Mountain Division (1999-2000). His diverse resume includes stints as a machinist, a locksmiths assistant, a convenience store clerk, a pickler, a maker of circuit boards, a dishwasher, a low-voltage electrician, a radio DJ and a bass guitar instructor. He now directs the MFA program at Sierra Nevada College and serves as a contributing editor at The Normal School. The Palace of Memory: An Evening with Brian Turner is part of the College of Arts & Sciences Lecture Series supported by a grant from the Seidler family. The series aims to enrich the intellectual life of FGCU and the greater Southwest Florida community by bringing prominent local and international thinkers to campus and encouraging open discussions of important ideas. A reception starts at 6 p.m. and the program begns at 6:30 p.m. in Edwards Hall, Room 112. Although admission is free, attendees are encouraged to register online at tinyurl.com/CAS-lectures. TURNER

H00616 8/16 ARTS COMMENTARYWill She Kills Monsters slay audiences?Should you go see She Kills Monsters by the Naples Players at the Sugden Community Theatre? Hell if I know. In all my decades of reviewing shows, Ive rarely felt as uncertain and as stymied by a play. Did I like it? Yes. Did I dislike it? Yes. Would I recommend you go see it? That depends. If you enjoy Dungeons and Dragons or cosplay or superheroes, yes. (In fact, you will positively geek out over it.) If you grew up in the s, yes. If you think Neil Simons works are the epitome of comedic plays, then no. If youre homophobic and offended by same-sex affection, no. The Friday night audience was surprisingly sparse. (And this just two days after opening night.) Ive never seen Blackburn Hall with so many rows of empty seats. And about a dozen people walked out (at various times) during this intermission-less show. They might have been bored or frustrated or offended. This play isnt everyones cup of tea, thats for sure. She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes (Amy Hughes), whose 15-yearold younger sister, Tilly (Amelia Mauriello). was killed in car crash, along with their parents. (This backstory is told in comic-book type images on a screen, animations by Terence Brown II.) Agnes finds her sisters homespun module, which is described as a map for Dungeons and Dragons, a fantasy role-playing game. Agnes decides to play the game in order to get closer to her dead sister and understand her better. She first meets Chuck (Zachary Pachol), a D&D nerd whos into comics and fancies himself a lady killer, but is anything but. Mr. Pachol does a good job of making his character a pudgy teen in a backwards baseball cap who lacks social skills annoying and unlikeable. As far as I could determine, Chucks the guy who rolls the dice and tells the players what to do. Agnes then meets the characters who will accompany her in this D&D adventure. Along with Tilly, theres Lilith (Mish Ritter), who carries a battleaxe and wears what looks like a short, black leather gladiator outfit. Shes an Amazon who purrs, Violence makes me hot. She wants to eat Agnes, saying, You look like you would be delicious with a side of baby. Simultaneously terrifying and humorous, Ms. Ritter positively owns this role as an axe-swinging badass.Kaliope (Carrie Drigotas) is an elf in a kind of chainmail outfit with a bikini top. Shes eerie (something later explained when she says elves are superior because they dont have emotions).Then theres Orcus, a ramhorned kind of satyr-looking person wearing a black leather codpiece and halter. Mark Santos (whos usually behind the scenes as The Naples Players set designer) makes this character entertaining and likeable. Like the other characters on this fiveperson team, except for Agnes, Orcus is gay, declaring at one point, I loves me the cock! An overlord of the underworld, he has lost Tillys soul and therefore is compelled to go along with the women on a journey to retrieve it. They meet bugbear and succubus and shapeshifters (oh, my!) and have a lot of swordfights, which quickly grow silly and tiresome. Farrah (Kylie Campbell), a faerie, shows up, making her entrance in the middle of the theater itself. Shes mean-spirited and bitchy, but I wish Ms. Campbell had made her even more so. I also wish directors would stop using those middle doors for actors entrances; not only do people in the front half of the house have to crane their necks to see whats happening behind them, but it takes you out of the play itself, as youre suddenly aware that youre seated in a theater. (And when the house lights were brought up for Ms. Campbells entrance, I thought an intermission was beginning.) The action alternates between the game and real life, where Agnes grapples with a non-committing, kinda blah boyfriend Miles (Chris Rand) and commiserates with her friend Vera (Kristin Cassidy), a cranky guidance counselor at the high school where Agnes also works. Ms. Cassidy shines in this role. Her character keeps a flask in her desk, and you know shes just counting the days to retirement. Her advice, of course, is of no help at all. (Kudos to set designer Mr. Santos for putting that ridiculous Hang in there! kitten-hanging-from-a-branch poster on Veras office wall. Its the perfect touch, and just the kind of rah-rah type of poster youd see in a guidance counselors office.) Ms. Hughes, as Agnes, holds her own among all the crazy monsters and overthe-top theatrics and thats not an easy thing to do. Ms. Mauriello, as Tilly, is also very winning. The set is a crumbling two-story castle with stone walls and a creepy tree. Sections on either side of the castle turn around to become Tillys bedroom, Veras office, Orcus lair or the gaming store Chuck works in. But the best thing about this play is the costumes and the monsters (created by Mark Vanagas.) And theres plenty of retro music to rock out to, including The Macarena, Michael Jacksons Thriller and numbers by Beck. Playwright Qui Nguyen has penned some humorous lines and absurd situations that made me laugh out loud. But at times I felt the play had the mentality (and attention span) of a 12-year-old boy. Like all too many sci-fi films and superhero movies, the play focuses more on the costumes, action and special effects to the detriment of character development. The scenes are numerous and mostly very short. (And its no surprise to learn the playwright has been hired by Marvel to write superhero scripts.) If you know absolutely nothing about D&D, you might find yourself very confused by this play, which assumes you have basic knowledge of the game and how its played. (Even a simple explanation in the program wouldve been helpful to those patrons.) She Kills Monsters is the type of experimental show The Naples Players would typically put in the Sugdens Tobye Studio. But, for some reason, they decided to stage it in the main hall. If Fridays audience is any indication, the company might lose money on this show. I honestly dont know if there are enough D&D devotees in the area to fill the Sugden night after night through Nov. 5. And I question whether She Kills Monsters has a universal appeal. The Players are walking a fine line: Theyre obviously trying to reach out to a much younger audience, but must do so while not alienating faithful subscribers. Coming on the heels of Rocky Horror Picture Show, this one might make some audience members wonder if the Players are being self-indulgent and putting on shows to please mostly themselves, allowing them to dress up in outlandish costumes. Its easy to put on a costume. Its much harder to act and move an audience to tears or laughter.

NoMultiple times while watching Happy Death Day, I wrote in my notes: Whos killing her? Why? and Who cares? Attempts to humanize Tree, as college student protagonist Teresa (Jessica Rothe) is called, are in vain because by the time we learn her backstory we already dont like her. When she gets killed, we cant help but think the world is better off. Then she wakes and the whole torturous day starts over again, for her and for us. Im ahead of myself. As director Christopher Landons film opens, Tree wakes in Carters (Israel Broussard) room after a night of partying. She doesnt remember his name. She leaves, walks through the quad, goes home to be terrible to her sorority sisters (not that theyre peaches themselves) and blows off her fathers phone calls even though its her birthday. Later she goes to a party and is stabbed and killed by a masked person while walking alone. There is no element of surprise here, and darn if you dont hope the movie will focus on a more interesting character now that this vapid floozy is dead. It doesnt. Tree wakes in Carters room again, walks through the quad again, etc., and soon realizes she needs to find out who keeps killing her in order to stop the cycle of repeating the day. By now youre thinking, How is Tree able to relive the day? and Why her? Great questions. Too bad Scott Lobdells screenplay doesnt answer them. Is it supernatural? Is she special for some reason? Does she need to get over her selfish self in order to move on? All those ideas are introduced, and none of them end up mattering. Watching the movie is like being given 10 pieces to a puzzle but only needing two to solve it. All the rest are excess. Beyond the story logical flaws abound, such as: During the montage in which she lets loose and does crazy things because, heck, she has nothing to lose, doesnt she realize that each day could be the one in which she catches her killer, meaning shell have to live with the consequences of her actions? Not sure she wants to be known for pink hair and walking naked through the quad. Also: Why doesnt Tree turn on the light when shes alone and walks into k c a G s s dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Director Christopher Landon is actor Michael Landons son; actress Ruby Modine, who plays Trees roommate, is actor Matthew Modines daughter.

Roar!October 20 22 PUZZLESROYAL NAMESAKES HOROSCOPESLIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Good news: Your outspoken views about a controversial on-thejob situation could find unexpectedly strong support from a most unlikely workplace faction. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might have to draw on your reservoir of spiritual strength to help someone special through a difficult time. Your loving attitude makes all the difference. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your proven leadership qualities make you the perfect person to take on an important workplace task. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Although some compromise might need to be reached regarding your stand on an important issue, youll still be able to get the most crucial points across. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A chance to make a career change carries both positive and uncertain possibilities. Best advice: Check it out thoroughly and dont be rushed into a decision. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youre still a staunch supporter of one side of an important issue. But be prepared to deal with new information that could cause you to question your current stand. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time to speak out on a difficult situation. Youre known for your honesty, so people will listen and, perhaps, begin to make longneeded changes. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines sharp business sense alerts you to question the positions of those trying to push the Bull into a deal. Demand to see proof of what they profess. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your quick thinking helps you get out of a troubling situation that suddenly was thrust upon you. Later on, you can expect to learn more about why it happened. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel youve dotted all your is and crossed all your ts regarding that upcoming deal. But there might be some facts youve ignored. Check again. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Time for the Lion to be more physically active. It will help shake off any lingering Leonine lethargy and restore your energy levels, so youll be prepared for what lies ahead. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Helping those in need at this time is laudable. But dont ignore your own needs, especially where it concerns your health. A medical checkup is a wise move.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2017 C15 the bathroom thinking the killer is there? And why is the hospital suddenly abandoned when shes attacked? For a movie that has too many supporting characters, they sure arent around when theyre needed. Its fitting that Happy Death Day takes place on a college campus because it feels like a student film. Its slight, poorly conceived and lacks originality. In trying to think of something nice to say about it, I come up with little. I chuckled at a few one-liners. The ending is fine (but unimpressive). Thats about it. So dont bother with it. FILMFrom page 12

Be a Brit Different COME TRY OUR NEW MENU ITEMS & SEASONAL FEATURES! Happy Hour M-F 3-7pm | Trivia Mondays 7:30pm Then all nine of us read the 18 finalists and chose our top three, with points assigned for everyones first, second and third picks. In the end, Naples resident Kristine Gills Good Intentions earned the most points. Read it on page C5. A media relations specialist with the Collier County Sheriffs Office, Ms. Gill majored in journalism and minored in creative writing at Kent State University in her home state of Ohio. She moved to Naples six years ago for a job as a reporter for the Naples Daily News. During five years at the paper she covered higher education, Naples city government and crime. She also wrote feature stories. She joined CCSO a year ago last month. A career in news never dampened Ms. Gills love of writing fiction. Ive been writing stories ever since I was little she says. Its always come easily. Throughout college classes in creative writing and even during a sixweek fiction writers workshop in Dublin, Ireland, offered through the University of Iowa, however, Ms. Gill says she never had much luck with writing prompts like the photographs that serve as the starting point for the Florida Weekly annual Writing Challenge. I rarely get much inspiration from any kind of prompt, she says. So when she saw the first of this years two photographic prompts for the Writing Challenge, she didnt ponder very long. I just went with the first thing that came to mind and started writing, she says. The result, Good Intentions, is written from the point of view of a woman who knows she should quit smoking. Ive never been a smoker, Ms. Gill says. But I have tried to convince people to quit, including my grandpa and my sister. Doesnt everyone know someone they wish would stop smoking?More storiesTwo entries in this years Writing Challenge tied for second place: Neapolitan Greig MacCallums Waiting at the Window and Fort Myers resident Douglas Molloys Clarity. And three tied for third place: Time Fighters by Alexis Lamb of Marco Island, Warriors of Peace by Linda Mills of Venice, and Chronological Time 2052 by Judy Rousseau, also of Venice. Comprising the rest of the 18 finalists were (in alphabetical order by writer): Our Day at the Beach by Debbie Brumback of Port Charlotte; Reach by Samuel Burnley, Port Charlotte; City Streets by Kelly Cheary, Palm Beach Gardens; Daisy at the Window by Carolyn Clark, North Fort Myers; Victory by David Dorsey, Fort Myers; Lee Island Lodge by Anne Fleming, Naples; Somebody by Pat Aube Gray, Blairsville, Ga.; What a Diffrence a Day Makes by JoAnne Leone of Blairsville, Ga.; Yes, Mama by J.E. Marksteiner of Fort Myers; Do What Your Love by Nancy Neuman, Port Charlotte; Destiny by Suzanne Smith of Englewood; and Missing by Julie Ward of Fort Myers. For her winning fiction, Ms. Gill earns a place at the Sanibel Island Writers Conference coming up Nov. 2-5 (see story on page C1). The runners up and all the writers who no doubt agonized over the other 250 entries we received this year earn our heartfelt appreciation and respect. We wish we had prizes for everyone, but we dont. We will, however, print the other 17 finalists as space permits over the next few weeks. To all who stepped up to the challenge, thank you.

GILL Veronicas Room opens at Laboratory Theater of Florida The Laboratory Theater of Florida will stage Veronicas Room, a psychological thriller by Ira Levin, beginning Oct. 20. This chilling story by the author of Rosemarys Baby explores the thin line between fantasy and reality, madness, and murder. Students Susan and Larry find themselves guests enticed to the Brabissant mansion by its dissolute caretakers, the lonely Mackeys. Struck by Susans strong resemblance to Veronica Brabissant, long-dead daughter of the family for whom they work, the older couple gradually induces her to briefly impersonate Veronica to solace the only living Brabissant, the addled sister who believes Veronica alive. Once dressed in Veronicas clothes, Susan finds herself locked in the role and locked in Veronicas room. Or is she Veronica, in 1935, pretending to be an imaginary Susan? Veronicas Room plays from Oct. 20 to Nov. 4 at the theater in Fort Myers. Performance dates are Oct. 20, 21, 26-28 at 8 p.m.; Oct. 22, 29 at 2 p.m.; Nov 2-4 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available on Brownpapertickets.com or by calling the box office at 218-0481.

This way, the smoke spiraled upward and away instead of upwards and into the corners of the unit her husband Kelly was so careful to keep so very clean. That, and because Kelly thought Lucy had quit. The truth was she liked the idea of quitting, but part of her knew she didnt have it in her. Already the marriage deadline had passed, a date three years ago when she swore she would swap the habit for some kind of Target obsession or Zoomba spinoff that other women her age claimed they were completely and totally addicted to. Instead, she found herself blowing smoke into a bathroom fan at the reception hall while her maid of honor held her veil in one hand and fished in her purse for a bottle of perfume with the other. It had been 20 years since her first cigarette and about the only thing she had done to improve her odds of the same premature death her father had succumbed to had been to switch to American Spirits. The brand boasted all-natural tobacco, which she explained to Kelly meant there were no additives. And which Kelly explained to her might very well be true for the plant itself, but didnt mean jack sh-when it came to the other things the company invariably did add to the finished product. That a strong and stylized Native American adorned the thin cardboard did nothing for Kelly, who assured Lucy that inside the mans lungs were black. Native Americans didnt live very long in their heyday, he had pointed out. And Lucy had reminded him that smallpox was really beside the point. Lucy blew smoke out of the side of her mouth so that the breath tickled her brow and flutter ed her bang s. She noted the chipping polish on her index finger as she ashed the tip and brought the fragile paper tube to her mouth again, squinting with the inhale. Stevey Miller had given her her first cigarette, a Newport, during their walk from the bus stop one afternoon in middle school. Lucy was a novice, but she had watched her father so often she found herself cupping the lighter gently as Stevey flicked a flame to life. Inhaling through the filter instead of someones second hand staleness gave Lucy such perspective. So this is what it felt like. It was warmer than she imagined, and the thing itself felt weightless between her fingers. She inhaled deeply, and Stevey watched to see whether she might cough, but her lungs had been primed for the occasion since birth. Kelly fell in love with Lucy before he knew about the habit. It was easy to hide when restaurants didnt allow it and when you lived separately. She stashed the packs in the well of her car door and didnt keep spare lighters around. She only smoked outside and used mouthwash afterward. Kelly didnt suspect a thing when he tasted her mouth for the first time, and she knew hed be lying if he said she tasted different all these years later. But with talk of kids and with fewer nights to herself, Lucy had softened to the idea that quitting was probably a good thing. Her fathers first scare had come at age 40, and she was not far off. Plus she was tired of the harassment and the polite but strained attempts Kelly made at encouragement. So she resolved to quit by the end of the year, which meant she needed to start tapering off her use now. Which meant she had to start smoking at the window first thing in the morning, and before Kelly got home in the evenings and when he was sh-----at night. She wondered how many times she could offer her cheek instead of her lips before he realized she was avoiding his tongue. The toilet flushed down the hall, followed by the soft padding of feet. Lucy smeared the glowing tip of her spent cigarette against the white cement and buried the butt in a potted plant on the sill, vowing to dig it out of the damp soil first thing in the morning.

Their menu reflects a union of diverse influences, blending cuisines, flavors and techniques in uncommon ways. An appetizer of escargot, for instance, is inspired by Philippine adobo, so the snails are bathed in coconut milk seasoned with vinegar and soy sauce with hints of kaffir lime. The culinary commingling continues with Hawaiian teabraised pork tucked into Mexican quesadillas and fried whole snapper over soba. The pommes frites are a must, whether or not you order them laced with truffle oil. A flat-iron steak crusted with house-smoked blue cheese comes with a delicious balsamic tomato sauce. Save room house made desserts of Okinawa sweet potato pie or passion fruit cheesecake. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2016 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 U.S. 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 olive and basil. Both were excellent. Service is efficient and pleasant. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016 Mediterrano, 336 13th Ave. S.; 261-7498 There arent many places in which the owner himself greets and seats you, but thats the level of hospitality found at this lovely little restaurant filled with soothing aquamarine hues that bring to mind the beauty of the Mediterranean waters. I enjoyed a refreshing mojito sangria, but theres an extensive wine list from which to choose. Warm pita triangles come with balsamic reduction, sundried tomato butter and olive oil as a starter. Try not to gorge. An appetizer of grilled octopus with baby spinach, preserved lemon, roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika was smoky and delicious. Lamb keftedes and falafel was a classic and hearty pairing that Id recommend two share. The cioppino was bountiful, full of sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a roasted Roma tomato sauce. Mediterranean sea bass arrived in a bamboo steamer filled with Moroccan spices, lavender, golden raisins and pomegranate seeds. It was the star of the meal. A limoncello parfait, a potent mix of icy lemon and soothing vanilla, was a refreshing end to the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016Moura Bistro, Meridian Marketplace, 3369 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 738-8883 This cozy little bistro offers the flavors of Lebanon and the Mediterranean hummus, kibbeh, shawarma, kebabs, falafel and such. Vegetarians and meat lovers alike will find plenty on which to feast. Both the smoky baba ghanoush dip and the spinach pie were great starters. Platters of shawarma chicken and falafel came piled high. The chicken had a great smoky flavor and spicy mayo for dipping while the crisp falafel was served with creamy tahini and garlic potatoes. The baklava had just enough honey but not so much that it drowned out the nuts and pastry. On Friday and Saturday night, a belly dancer provides entertainment. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2016 Tartine & Tartelette, 11121 Health Park Blvd., Naples; 888-1151 This cozy little restaurant just off Goodlette-Frank and Immokalee roads might seem an unlikely setting for excellent French fare, but thats what you will find here, along with ample parking, a friendly staff and an attractive dining room. Owners Axelle and Jean Bechu have transformed the space with soothing tones of silver-gray and white. A millefeuille (a thousand leaves) of smoked salmon and apples was a gorgeous and delicious dish of whisperthin slices of Granny Smith apples alternating with rich smoked salmon. A vol au vent of the sea held bits of chopped seafood in cream sauce beneath a tender puff pastry. The coq au vin was a classic rendition served in its own little pot. And scallops in grapefruit butter were exceptionally good, the scallops perfectly cooked then touched with butter and bits of pink grapefruit and served with splendid roasted tomatoes. A warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream and slivered almonds was a perfect finish to the meal. Beer and wine served.

Someday, when Im no longer paid to dine omnivorously at lifes rich banquet, I may consider embracing a mostly plant-based diet. I already enjoy a wide range of fruits, veggies and grains, so it wont be a hard sell. But for now, I enjoy (in moderation) a few strips of shatteringly crisp smoky bacon, a juicy rare lamb chop, a lean tenderloin of venison. And so, at Jimmy Ps Butcher Shop & Caf, I salivate like the proverbial kid in the candy shop. Jim Pepper is a third-generation butcher and his family has been serving Naples since 1985, specializing in prized Wagyu beef, hard-to-find heritage Berkshire pork and exotic game meats as well as less mainstream cuts of lamb and veal. In addition to Jimmy Ps Charred Steakhouse and Jimmy Ps Burgers and More, the company has two on-site smokehouses where workers produce and sell deli meats, baby back ribs, beef jerky, smoked sausages and many other gourmet items. The Bonita Springs smokehouse/ caf/deli opened in July, serving allday brunch items, Wagyu burgers and other sandwiches, salads and more. Its already drawing crowds despite an outof-sight location in a corporate-type commercial complex with limited parking nearby. Patrons were pulling cars onto grass wherever they could find a patch during a recent lunch hour. A supposed 10-minute wait can stretch into 20 if you arrive at peak times, but the staff will be genuinely apologetic. And you can pass the time by browsing the retail shelves. Ogle the massive tomahawk rib chops in the meat case. Savor a sample of fresh corned beef at the deli counter. Marvel at the shelves of duck fat, demi-glace, foie gras and ground venison and elk. Try to imagine how that camel meat tastes like chicken? The space has a modern industrial air, with a high ceiling, concrete floors dappled to resemble terrazzo and a window where you can watch butchers at work in a separate room. Reggae in the background adds a note of fun. Getting a table might take extra time but once youve ordered, food will be served in a jiffy appropriately enough on rimmed quarter-sheet pans. So on trend. From the brunch menu, a plate of French toast with maple bacon ($9) starts things on a sweet, but not too sweet note. The eggy bread feels relatively light, and it hints of cinnamon deep within the golden-brown exterior. Syrup is on the side, as are three long rashers of bacon encased in a candylike crust thats charred around the edges but somehow manages not to taste burnt just maple-y. More pig? Try a side of peameal bacon ($4.50) especially if youve never had this lean(ish) Canadian cousin to pork belly. Its sliced from a wet-cured pork loin from the back of the hog and rolled in cornmeal, creating a yellow crust (originally, it was rolled in crushed yellow peas). Juicy and salty, it takes more like ham than bacon, but either way its oh so good. We could have ordered a bacon burger as well, or a pastrami-topped patty, but decided to keep it simple and Swiss ($12) in order to let the Wagyu beef take center stage. The burger was cooked medium-rare, as requested, its unique rich taste and tenderness owing to the high degree of marbling that is Wagyus signature. Topped with caramelized onions, Swiss cheese and a sweet barbecue-like sauce, it was the epitome of craft-burger excellence. A huge pile of crispy shoestring fries came on the side (cole slaw can be substituted). No trip to Jimmy Ps would be complete without a house-made deli classic such as corned beef, pastrami or smoked brisket. (May we suggest adding a combo meat platter, Jimmy?). We settled on a pastrami sandwich with mustard and Swiss on marble rye ($12) simple but sublime. The cured brisket was one of the finest Ive ever tasted fresh, tender, moist, smoky, not overwhelmed by salt or spices. Even the bread spongy and sliced thick was noteworthy. Good onion rings are worth a $1 upgrade, too. In case youre wondering, Jimmy Ps does usually have a fish special to counter all the beef and pork. It was already sold out when we arrived, our friendly server told us. Without hard-selling, she suggested finishing with dark-chocolate-encased Key lime pie on a stick ($3.99), and it was quickly devoured along with a slice of regular Key lime pie ($3.99). We liked the fluffy, chiffonlike texture but prefer more tartness in the filling. Dessert was soon forgotten, though, as we quickly moved on to daydreaming about our next visit. No offense to Arbys and its trademarked slogan, but when it comes to fresh, hand-crafted food, Jimmy Ps has the meats. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYA deli classic, pastrami on marble rye is simple but sublime.
