A2 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY M A T T E R momentsTheres no place like home on the holidays. Its that deep breath of contentment as you fluff that last pillow right before the doorbell rings and your guests arrive. We know sharing your home makes up the moments in life that matter. Stop in today and find the perfect backdrop to your life. sarasotapinellas parkfort myerstarpon springsnaples THE LEADER IN COASTAL HOME FURNISHINGS COMMENTARYThe critics who read Every so often a baseball player hits a late-innings homer, a football player scores a fourth-quarter touchdown with a breakaway run, or a basketball player hits a three-pointer at the buzzer, winning the game. Those moments result in either great joy or deep sorrow for a multitude for fans who break into wild cheering and celebration, or for fans who sag and groan in despair. Thats the nature of the game. Writing columns is like that, too. Every so often a writer presents an opinion strongly and clearly enough to garner both wild cheers and groans of despair and disapproval. For columnists, such reader reaction is the lifeblood of the business. Why? When people read and then speak their minds all of us are better for it. Among other things reading is a form of seeing and of leading. Thus the reading community is essential to the survival and progress of American society. Readers inevitably look beyond their own horizons to make decisions about their own lives but also those of others. They do that in part by voting. My guess is nearly all readers vote, although not all voters read. So a reader is a voter is a leader. A voter says, I need to make this choice and travel this direction, and you all need to join me because life will be better for it. There will be disagreement, of course.When I write opinions, Im always aware of this American strength, so I write from the heart based on what I know and have read. A columnist starts with a body of facts Donald Trump is president, Roy Moore is from Alabama, the unemployment rate in Florida was 3.6 percent in October, Gov. Rick Scott spent $78 million of his own money to win the 2010 gubernatorial race by 1.15 percent, Floridas Everglades are dying, 19 women have accused the president of sexual misconduct. Those are facts. No fair-minded reader disputes them. Every good columnist begins with them. Then the columnist offers a measured opinion about those facts and signs it at Florida Weekly, as Roger Williams or Stephanie Davis or the papers late great Bill Cornwell, who won first place in 2016 from the Florida Society of Professional Journalists for his brilliant cheeror-groan commentaries in our paper. All of us do it that way, including Rich Lowry, editor of the National Review, commentator for Fox News, writer for Politico and the syndicated conservative voice whose opinions also appear in our pages each week; he starts with facts and thinks them through before offering opinions. Mr. Lowrys opinions are ridiculous, of course, but thats just my opinion. I welcome them. Im glad to see them. And I know he develops them from a body of facts, from reading, and from his own living experience, just as I do. Donald Trump is president. Roy Moore is from Alabama, and so on. Although I complain about Mr. Lowry, Id be horrified if my editors removed his voice from our paper without replacing it with someone of roughly similar foolishne. sorry, roughly similar outlook. Such opinions from any columnist the left wingers, the right wingers or the Buffalo wingers, as the Politico writer and author Michael Grunwald characterizes the scene are not part of the rest of the paper. And they are not necessarily the opinions of the papers owners when they come tagged with individual bylines such as mine or Mr. Lowrys. Most of the paper, however, is not opining. The great bulk of a decent daily or weekly is even-handed reporting: the analysis of issues, the reporting of news, of business, the arts, real estate or food and wine, for example. Those represent the other side, the primary obligation of any good paper. And ours has become very good indeed. Florida Weekly can offer readers both fine reporting and writing, and a strong and diverse body of reasoned opinions about the issues of the day. I mention all this because the notions are simple, but theyve become muddied in a particularly rancorous commentary climate dating from the beginning of 2016 or so.That was particularly apparent last week when the column I wrote, The 11th Province, garnered both affirmative shouts of glee and howls of outrage from readers. In it, I said people who abhor Donald Trump could become Canadians if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would adopt them in place, and everybody else could move to Alabama and secede. I particularly admired the critics of that notion, some of whom apparently read my inflammatory piece without reading it. I do not read your paper. I even caution others not to read it. It is because your opinions (stink) one writer responded. Others insisted people should quit supporting Florida Weekly altogether. While some readers offered praise, which I always welcome with pleasure and gratitude, I admired the angry critics the most.Heres why: Its much easier to read the thinking and writing of those who confirm your own opinions and biases, than to read the opinions of those who question your own notions of nearly everything.That takes some courage, some willingness to suffer discomfort by looking beyond your own horizon. Such a particularly American virtue is exactly what we aim to inspire here in our opinion section at Florida Weekly and I think I can speak for the paper and its owners in that regard. So now let me avoid hypocrisy by thanking my critics. By making myself a cup of tea. And by forcing myself again to turn to Rich Lowrys column. And reading it. If its too offensive, after all, I can just add bourbon to the tea and belt it all down in a single heady gulp. a t i a f h roger

As veterans of the oil and gas industry and the beneficiaries of the superb environmental conditions of South Florida, we support a ban. To remind us all, fracking is an extraction technology that employs large amounts of freshwater and a cocktail of toxic chemicals, to extract oil and gas. South Florida has encountered numerous droughts and water emergencies in the last few years and our population continues to grow. We cant risk inadequate water supplies or contamination from the chemicals. The subsoil conditions in Florida strongly suggest that migration of toxicity to aquifers is a substantial risk even if there are no accidents or spills yet national data suggests that more than 10 percent of all fracking procedures result in spills. And, national data also suggests that well water drawn from within one mile of a fracking well contains above acceptable toxicity. We simply cannot risk this. In addition, tourism and development of home sites to attract new residents are two of our largest businesses. Pollution of the Everglades or even a temporary concern about water contamination could do great harm to our economy for a long time. Given the environmental and economic risks to Florida, one would think that there must be an urgency to extract this oil and gas, or at least a substantial profit to be made from doing so. This is not the case. The fracking process is still relatively expensive compared to conventional oil drilling. Where fracking is currently in use, it is typically where there are proven reserves, allowing the operator to recover more reserves, with better economies of scale. This is not true in Florida. Current global oil pricing (and projections by leading energy analysts) suggests that this situation will continue for the foreseeable future as energy demand per capita is dropping in the developed world. This means fracking in Florida is likely to be marginally profitable for an extended period. Fracking can produce oil or gas. Both require transportation to refineries or processors typically by pipeline, sometimes by rail, and, as a last (and most expensive) resort, by truck. Florida currently has limited usable pipelines or rail. It seems unlikely that such infrastructure will be economically or politically acceptable. Therefore, transportation cost will reduce the economic value of reserves and burden our roads with potentially harmful truck traffic and additional demands for development in the Everglades. (When associated gas is extracted with oil in a region without gas pipelines, like Florida, the gas is flared and completely wasted, contributing to climate change.) Fracking is risky. Regulatory authorities typically demand high permit fees (to support monitoring expense) and insurance or bonds with large indemnity amounts and multi-year availability. This is not currently true in Floridaand it is doubtful whether the quality and quantity of reserves in Florida would attract responsible exploration contractors who could afford those risk costs. There is no national demand for additional oil and natural gas at this time. The US will be a net exporter of natural gas by the end of this year. Should we risk Floridas tourist and environmental future without any overriding need or demand? Fracking has not proven itself safe for Florida, a sensitive environment with unique characteristics and an environmentally driven economy. We support a ban on fracking.

Fortunately for him, he has a Twitter account allowing him to act on this impulse immediately and without any filter. Trump recently retweeted three videos from an apparatchik of an extremist party in Britain purporting to show acts of violence by Muslims. One of them is reportedly a fake. He followed up with a tweet calling for the firing of Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough on the basis of a noxious conspiracy theory. (A woman with a heart condition died in Scarboroughs district office when he was a congressman. Ever since, a kooky fringe has accused him of murder.) Its difficult to exaggerate how mindblowing these tweets are. If a friend on Facebook shared the fake Muslim video, youd hesitate to credit any of his opinions going forward, let alone bestow on him the biggest megaphone on planet Earth. If a candidate for town council called for an investigation of Scarborough for allegedly murdering one of his interns, youd doubt his fitness to decide whether to approve a zoning permit, let alone to wield the worlds most fearsome nuclear arsenal. Yet Trumps presidency operates on a largely separate track than his Twitter feed and his other off-script interjections and pronouncements. His domestic policy is so conventional that it could have been cooked up by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and, in fact, it was. Hes pursued a largely status quo foreign policy, except more cautious than Barack Obamas and, especially, George W. Bushs. Amid the miasma of manufactured controversies, Trumps presidency is, as Mark Twain is supposed to have said of Wagners music, better than it sounds. If you got news only of Trumps official acts and knew nothing of his ongoing commentary, youd think a rigorously rules-bound president occupied the White House. The defining feature of Trumps judicial nominees is a firm commitment to interpreting the Constitution and the laws as written. On the legislative front, Trump is getting closer to his first major victory, in pursuit of the stereotypical Republican policy goal of deficitfinanced tax cuts. In the real world, the economy is growing at a nice clip, and the stock market is humming along, showing no signs that it believes that the republic is about to be destroyed by a Mad King. None of this is to suggest that Trumps governing and his tweets are entirely distinguishable. Some of the tweets have had consequences, and, if nothing else, they are a dismaying window into his state of mind. But the tweets dont constitute the sum total of the administration. Its possible that Trump sees Twitter and his other provocations as a way to stir the pot, entertain himself, stoke his base, flog his enemies and vent his frustrations separate and distinct from decisions of government, undertaken under the influence of, by and large, impressive, well-meaning advisers. Trumps presidency is much better than his Twitter feed. Although he stands ready and willing to convince you otherwise, 280 characters at a time.

Come Make the G L GUEST COMMENTARYNot just an ordinary girl named Maria BY SAM SEWELLIt was a long, hard road just to graduate from Immokalee High School. Until she was 15 years old, she was on that road with her parents, following the harvest across America, from sea to shining sea. There were artichokes in California, cherries in Michigan, tomatoes in Florida. All along the way, Marias mother found a way to give roots to her family. She worked part-time, lived with relatives and attended adult education classes while the rest of the family continued to harvest crops for a living. Marias mother became a licensed cosmetologist and found a job at a beauty shop in Immokalee. With financial help from neighbors, her family finally had a home. The rest of the family members found jobs, and for the first time in her life, Maria became a student who could actually stay in one school for an entire school year. Her grades began to improve. By the time she was a senior, her teachers had noticed this was no ordinary girl named Maria. One of them encouraged her to apply for one of the Mensa Scholarships the local chapter of the high-IQ society awards at the end of each school year. Local Mensa members evaluate student essays to determine the scholarship winners. Some Mensa members see themselves as holy guardians of the English language. Things like spelling, grammar, syntax and parts of speech are treated with reverence. Marias scholarship essay written in English, which is not her native language won the competition. In addition to correct English usage, the Mensa essays are judged on the goals the student has for the future. Maria had a well thought-out plan. Her dream was to attend college and major in education, with a goal toward a Ph.D. Then she wanted to establish a standardized curriculum that would be used throughout the school districts in the great harvest regions of our country. Maria knows, first hand, that if migrant children can get high quality, consistent education, they will be able to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty that has been so much a way of life for her family. My wife and I were invited to emcee the Mensa Scholarship awards dinner that year. We were fortunate to be seated at the same table with Maria and her mother. Marias mother seemed to tolerate the fuss over her daughter with a benevolent amusement. Maria bubbled. She was irrepressibly charming. She confided to my wife that she was afraid her makeup had smeared or run before the ceremony had even begun. She explained that they didnt have air-conditioning at home, and the A/C in their old pickup had not worked since last year. When Maria and my wife left to do the things that women do in front of mirrors, the young scholars mother, who had seemed so composed earlier, leaned forward with an intense look on her face. Maria is going to do something with her life, she told me. Thank you for helping. A slight quiver of the lower lip was the only hint of the feelings behind her matriarchal dignity. Several of the people at our table were struck with compassion for what we were witnessing. We were also inspired by such a pure example of the American Dream. When Maria returned, some of us began to offer sympathy for all her hardships. Maria wanted none of it. Things arent so bad now. It has been a long time since we havent had enough food, she said cheerfully. Here in Naples we know people who consider it a bad day if their hot tub springs a leak. Maria thinks things are OK if she has eaten that day. Philosopher, clergyman, psychotherapist, scientist, humorist and raconteur Dr. Sam Sewell is a member of the Southwest Florida chapter of Mensa. His articles are frequently published in political, religious and behavioral science periodicals. This article will appear in the January issue of Mensas national magazine, the Mensa Bulletin. SEWELL Time to writeThe local Mensa organization, South by Southwest, awards several thousand dollars in nancial aid to scholars from Collier, Lee, Charlotte and Glades counties every year. These cash scholarships are granted without consideration of grades, academic program or nancial need to students who will be enrolled fulltime in any accredited educational institution for the coming academic year. Scholarships are based solely on anonymous, 550-word essays describing the students educational and academic aspirations. Essays to be considered for awards in the spring of 2018 must be submitted by Monday, Jan. 15. For guidelines, and to apply for one of these several awards, go to: org/scholarships. Anyone wishing to support local scholars can contribute with checks made out to Mensa Scholarship Fund and mailed to Sam or Bunny Sewell, 10202 Vanderbilt Drive, Naples, FL 34108.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYAnd that number is up from five years ago, when there were 1,368 full-service restaurants in Lee County, 864 in Collier and 299 in Charlotte. The good news is that with all those restaurants have come greater choices. There are now multiple Vietnamese, Indian, Middle Eastern and farm-totable spots as well as establishments that cater to vegetarians and those following special diets. Nonetheless, it remains an industry in which it is tough to gain a foothold. Many restaurants fail within the first year. It didnt help this fall when Hurricane Irma struck, robbing businesses of electricity for days, causing flooding and damage that took weeks or months to repair. So why open a restaurant, commit to the long hours, the fickle nature of customers, the whims of nature and the uncertain labor market? In most cases, its a passion for creating great food and watching people enjoy it. Another is that chefs and restaurateurs recognize the market potential in this tourist-rich area. Matt Hanson, who recently opened The Original Shrimp Dock Bar & Grill in an historic shrimp packing facility at the end of Main Street near Fort Myers Beach, says, We wanted to pay homage to the rich history of the Fort Myers shrimping fleet. This property was originally a shrimp dock and packaging facility and with the availability of the best shrimp in the world right here on the island, we thought it was a perfect fit. Matt Arnold relocated from Kansas City to join forces with his college friend, Cory Royer, to open Point 57 in March. They completely remodeled the building that was previously the Lazy Flamingo, Metropolitan Grill and The Dog in Cape Coral. Mr. Royer spent nine winters here. Mr. Arnold visited him and they toured the building. I appreciated being near the water, appreciated the beauty of the town and something about the building spoke to me, he says. I saw that she still had some life in her. They stripped it to the bare bones and created a sleek, contemporary space complete with the best-stocked bar in town. They opened in the spring, serving contemporary American food with a Southern soul, Mr. Arnold says. With the economy chugging along nicely, unemployment low and tourism flourishing, long-established restaurateurs are adding to their holdings as well. Ginger Bistro, an exceptionally good Chinese restaurant which has been thriving in a relatively hidden spot in the Burlington (formerly Coat Factory) plaza at Colonial Boulevard and U.S. 41, is opening a second location this winter in northern Cape Coral. Restaurateur Sal Basile just opened The Saucy Meatball in Gateway, three miles from his thriving Two Meatballs in the Kitchen. His reasoning: There are a lot of businesses in there and the people dont have time to go far for lunch. The front of the restaurant is set up so they can come in, grab a pizza slice or calzone and get back to work. He figures time-impoverished parents racing home from work and picking up the kids from soccer practice can dash in for a pizza to take home for dinner. In the back of the building is the sitdown restaurant, geared to a younger crowd than his other restaurant attracts. Its equipped with Wi-Fi, phone chargers and offers more specials in addition to the Italian classics. In Estero, Skip Quillen is readying his new concept, The Saloon, which will replace Blue Water Bistro at Coconut Point. It will specialize in steaks, craft burgers, barbecue, salads and homemade desserts, offer 250 types of spirits, 50 draft and bottled beers, 50 wines and an array of craft cocktails. Its expected to open later this month. And chef/owner Fabrizio Aielli and his wife, Ingrid, just announced plans to open a third Naples restaurant, Dorona, an Italian steakhouse, in January. It will occupy the spot left empty when MidTown Kitchen + Bar closed at Golden Gate Parkway and U.S. 41. It will complement the Aiellis other restaurants, Sea Salt, known for its fresh seafood and vast collection of sea salts; and their Italian spot, Barbatella. They also operate a second Sea Salt in St. Petersburg. I have been thinking about this concept for a while, Mr. Aielli says. A steakhouse serving exceptional meat with an Italian flair, and equally important, providing a variety of dishes that appeal to everyone. The feast, it seems, continues. So heres an attempt to summarize whats opened in the past few months and whats coming in the next few. Lets hope youre hungry.COLLIER COUNTY The Bevy From deviled oysters to bouillabaisse to pan-seared kurobuta pork and grilled cauliflower steak, theres something for everyone here, including a three-course meal for the family dog. 360 12th Ave. 228-4220, Bistro Bagatelle Le Lafayette, a long-time bastion of fine French fare in downtown Naples, was a victim of Irma. The extensive damage will take time to repair so chef/owner Sebastien Maillard opened Bistro Bagatelle on U.S. 41 East, where Mr. Moms Diner, Cloydes, Scallywags Steak & Burger House and Sweet Mamas Island Cuisine have all operated.

Sometimes its hard to find enough volunteers to coordinate the logistics of that, he added, citing hurricane fatigue as a big factor in finding volunteers for the 2017 holiday season. This year was tough with Irma. Red-kettle volunteers and hires are people from all walks of life, even people who have received Salvation Army aid in the past. Church groups, Girl Scouts, rich, poor, young, old it really is a true cross-section of the community, Mr. de St. Pierre said. Much is written and publicized about the good nonprofits do for the community, but sometimes its overlooked how impactful their employment opportunities are. Naples resident Kim Kruczek was never one for going out in the public, struggling at times with severe anxiety that crippled her ability to interact with people outside her home. When I was young I babysat. It kept me at home away from people, Ms. Kruczek, now 62, recalled. Then I transitioned in to house cleaning, which was also away from the public. Health issues hampered her ability to work for several years and then, coupled with her anxiety, she wasnt sure where to turn next. I thought, I cant do anything, I have no background or experience. What am I going to do? It was a woman with cerebral palsy who worked for the Salvation Army for decades who convinced Ms. Kruczek to apply for a bell-ringer job. She worked the season for the first time last year. And shes back at it this year, taking up her post in front of the Vineyards Publix several days a week, ringing the Salvation Army bell, wishing people a Merry Christmas and thanking all those who drop a donation in the kettle. She even brings a radio now and is known to dance to the holiday music if her knees feel up to it. I quickly found that I didnt want to stop, she said about her fir st few shifts last year. I really like the idea of doing this, giving back. Ive never been out there in public so much. She laughs that sometimes she loses her voice from singing all day especially when she remembers how nervous simply filling out the job application made her a year ago. Now she cant imagine life without the opportunity. When I first ventured out, Id think that no one around me cared, she said. But now, When someone says something as simple as How are you doing today? to me, its such a good feeling. If you dont put yourself out there, you wont be a part of society You have to take that first step. The Naples Corps of the Salvation Army began in 1981 and has been doing good throughout Collier County ever since, providing emergency social services and disaster relief, a Christmas cheer program and numerous programs for children (its Fran Cohen Youth Center houses afterschool performing arts classes). Although the paid bell-ringer positions are filled for this season, volunteers are always welcome additions to the ranks. The local website does tout a number of paid job openings, including afterschool tutors and drivers, maintenance helpers, a forklift operator and an accounting clerk. For more information about the Salvation Army, its programs and opportunities, visit naples. Naples resident Kim Kruczek can be found at the Vineyards Publix several days a week working as a bell-ringer beside the Salvation Army kettle. Salvation Army Major Dan Proctor plays holiday tunes while his grandson Joshua rings the bell.

Citizens Council honors identity fraud expertFor her pioneering work in fighting identity fraud in Collier County, Carrie Kerskie has been named recipient of the Murray Hendel Civic Achievement Award by the Collier Citizens Council. Named for cofounder and outgoing president of the CCC, the award recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the community.The honor was accompanied by a Florida Senate proclamation from Sen. Kathleen Passidomo recognizing Ms. Kerskie as one of the first to fight what has become a pervasive crime that affects thousands of Floridians. Her involvement in fighting identity fraud started in 2006 when, as head of the Kerskie Group, a private investigating firm, she began helping identity theft victims. As the problem worsened, she developed lists of precautions people could take and codified steps to minimize the damage. This led to her 2011 book, Your Public Identity: Because Nothing is Private Anymore and speaking engagements around the country.In 2013, she was tapped to head a task force assembled to fight the problem in Collier County. Under her direction, the group brought in experts, wrote educational pieces and sponsored a series of public forums. In 2015, Hodges University hired Ms. Kerskie to set up and manage the schools Identity Fraud Institute, providing a focal point for helping local victims. Ms. Kerskie has also worked with Sen.

The safest patient is the one who never enters a hospital. The healthiest patient is the one who embraces prevention and self-care. The least expensive hospitalization is the one that never occurs. Successful hospitals will transform from legacy in-patient repair shops to proactive out-patient health-care systems, providing care mostly in patients homes utilizing modern technology thats already available. Successful physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants will emphasize prevention. Health care is being welcomed into the fourth Industrial Revolution: the Exponential Age, where merging technologies are disrupting businesses by blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres. Healthcare is the largest industry by far in America, consuming 17.8 percent of the GDP at $3.2 trillion dollars and growing. But our country perennially ranks last of 11 developed nations in health care. Many changes are already here. Currently, about two-thirds of our nations 5,000 hospitals employ some form of tele-medicine. At NCH we have had tele-radiology for more than two decades and tele-stroke technology for almost three years. We recently added tele-medicine whereby patients, for a small fee, can use video or Facetime with an NCH Physician Group physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant or 24/7 back-up service. Visiting home nurse care combined with other caregivers who monitor vital signs remotely by Facetime or Skype has already been shown to decrease ER visits and hospitalizations.SEE WEISS, A17 Connect with an elder this holiday season THE AREA AGENCY ON AGINGApproximately 28 percent of Americas seniors live alone, and many experience social isolation lack of regular contact with others. Studies by the National Center on Elder Abuse show a correlation between social isolation and elder abuse. Social isolation has also been connected with a number of health issues, including poor diet, dementia, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, arthritis and depression. The Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida urges local residents to take some time to connect with a senior during the holiday season. During the holidays, we usually reconnect with friends, family and neighbors, explains Sherry Young, health and wellness coordinator at AAASWFL. But for elders living in social isolation, the holidays can be incredibly lonely. That comes with a lot of risk for them. Maintaining connections with our elder loved ones and making new connections with seniors can help to ensure their well-being and protect them from abuse. Approximately one in 10 adults age 60 and over have experienced some form of elder abuse. Isolated elders are not only more likely to fall victim to abuse, but abused elders are also more likely to be isolated from others, as their abusers attempt to hide the mistreatment. Older adults who are isolated are also at risk for self-neglect. Self-neglect is closely related to elder abuse; the AARP estimates that as many as half of the cases reported to Adult Protective Services are related to self-neglect. Isolated elders may stop maintaining personal hygiene, cease managing their finances or even avoid seeking medical attention because they are unwilling or unable to do so on their own. AAASWFL urges friends and relatiaves who visit with elders this holiday season to be mindful of the risk factors for social isolation. These include loneliness, chronic health problems, lack of transportation, recent changes in residence and critical life transitions (such as retirement or the loss of a partner). Elders age 80 or over are particularly susceptible to social isolation. People with concerns about an isolated senior are encouraged to call the AAASWFL Helpline 866-413-5337 to learn about opportunities for elders in our community. Helpline specialists can provide information about meal programs, volunteer opportunities, fitness classes and services that provide home care for seniors. The Helpline can also screen adults 60 and over for governmentfunded services. Anyone who suspects elder abuse or self-neglect is urged to call the Florida Department of Children and Families Florida Abuse Hotline at 800-962-2873. AAASWFL is a nonprofit organization serving Collier, Charlotte, DeSoto, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Sarasota counties. It is the states designated Aging and Disability Resource Center for Southwest Florida. The organization is committed to helping adults ages 60 and over and people with disabilities to live with independence and dignity in their own homes and communities.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONS Nationally and locally, similar offerings are now more robust, available and accepted, thus saving everyone time and expense. Artificial intelligence is becoming more common. NCHs early sepsis recognition and treatment plan, for example, has saved an estimated 909 lives since it started five years ago. And Stanford University has used machine learning and AI to diagnose pneumonia on X-rays better than radiologists could. Preand post-hospital care accounts for much more of well-being than the few very expensive days a person might spend in a hospital. On the preside, prevention is monumental. Just stopping young folks from beginning to smoke will prevent misery and cost over a lifetime. Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death in America. Cigarettes are responsible for more than 480,000 deaths yearly. And for every person who dies of smoking, at least 30 people live with a serious smoking-related illness. The same case can be made for obesity prevention and about 80 percent of other self-induced diseases. Early diagnosis with treatment of mental illness is an equally important opportunity. Across our nation, hospitals built half a century ago need huge and expensive modernizations. These behemoths have large workforces with monumental inefficiencies. Consider the transformation of manufacturing, retail or any other industry that can now successfully produce a better product or service using fewer people and resources. Health care must continue transforming so that we can help everyone live a longer, happier, and healthier life.

PET TALESClaw and order BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationLast month, Denver became the first city outside of California to ban the declawing of cats. In September, the American Association of Feline Practitioners strengthened its position on the procedure, stating that it strongly opposes declawing. Declawing (onychectomy) has been controversial for years, but the procedure, surgical amputation of the toe bone think having your fingers chopped off at the first knuckle is increasingly under fire. Potential complications include claw regrowth and bony remnants that cause pain or lameness. Cats scratch. Its not only a normal behavior for them, its an essential one. Just as you mark your territory with art, photographs or furniture of a certain style, cats lay claim to a place through scent and visual markers. Scratching performs both functions by leaving gouges the higher the better in the scratched item as well as depositing scent from glands in the cats paws. Both signals tell other cats that yours is a force to be reckoned with and help cats feel comfortable in their environment. Scratching keeps claws sharp and removes the dead outer layer of the claw. And we can infer from our own experience that stretching a big part of scratching action feels good. Scratching has a communication function, it has a grooming function, it has a comfort function, says veterinary behaviorist Debbie Horwitz in St. Louis. It isnt really in the best welfare of cats to declaw them, to remove their digits, simply because its easier than us doing something else to stop a normal but unwanted behavior. It can be frustrating when a cat scratches an expensive carpet or piece of furniture, but a little feline psychology and feng shui go a long way toward solving the problem. Teaching a cat where to scratch involves not only choosing the right size and type of post but also placing it in an area that gives your cat the most bang for his communication buck. Cats scratch in both vertical and horizontal positions. A vertical scratching post should be at least 3 feet high with a sturdy base so the cat can stretch out to full length as he lets loose with his claws. Ceiling-height posts encourage climbing as well, which is good exercise and allows cats to enjoy a high vantage point where they can feel safe and survey their surroundings. Horizontal posts dont have to be long, but cats will appreciate sturdiness and texture. Placement is important. Cats like to show off their scratching prowess. If you shove the post down in the basement or some other out-of-the-way area, no one can see his masterpiece. With the number of attractive and stylish cat trees available, theres no reason not to have one front and center.I have one in my kitchen (that) is a big platform so he can look out the window, Dr. Horwitz says. I have one in my family room, which is where I spend time watching TV, and I have one in the dining room.Placing a post in areas where you spend time and next to items that your cat might otherwise scratch encourages its use and allows you to notice unwanted scratching and redirect your cats attention to the post. Run your fingers up it hell be attracted by the motion and sound. A product called Feliscratch uses pheromones and catnip to entice cats to use the post. Its blue coloring enhances the visual message of the scratch marks. Teaching a cat scratching manners protects our belongings, but it has a deeper benefit, Dr. Horwitz says. Preserving the natural, instinctive behaviors of cats enhances their well-being. They have a lot of natural behaviors that are objectionable to us, but we should give them alternatives to do those normal behaviors in a way that theyre not objectionable to us or other people.

There was a period in my life I think it was in my 30s when I was an excellent small-talker. I could flit around a party like a busy little bee, pollinating every guest I passed with fluffy, sweet words, meaningless words: Oh my God, I love your dress! So good to see you! Ill bet your vacation was divine! Why that martini looks delicious Im off to the bar to get one! I love the new hair color have fun with the kids over holiday break! Scotts not here? My husband hates these parties, too lets catch up later! Small talk, Ive learned, really is a skill. The larger the party, the defter you have to be at it. Complimenting someones outfit, hair or new glasses is perfect because youre not asking an open-ended question which could lead to a variety of uncomfortable topics. For instance, Hows business? could result in, Im glad you asked! Im selling steak knives these days and I really want to talk to you about hosting a steak-knife party in your home. How many of your friends do you think would come? Or Hows your wife/husband/partner? could backfire with, Well, actually, we just split up and right before the holidays. Im heartbroken and miserable can we find a corner and talk? And even, You look great! can result in, Thanks, but I feel awful Ive been diagnosed with gout and Ive been wanting to talk to you about it do you know a good doctor? Im not saying that I was shallow during my small-talking party days, Im only pointing out that holiday parties, or black-tie events, or cocktail fundraisers are not the ideal surroundings in which to discuss business, divorce or illness. Now that Ive matured though, I actually DO want to talk about things other than how cute a dress is or how tasty an hors doeuvre is. The other night, I was invited to an impromptu, intimate dinner. There were only five of us sitting around a small dining room table in a lovely little home with whimsical holiday decorations and a pink Christmas tree. We ate comfort food and enjoyed chocolate cake for dessert. We kicked off our shoes and talked about the arts. We shared stories of past relationship struggles. We made jokes and laughed. And even though it was the dinner table, we discussed religion as one guest was Jewish, two were Christian, and another hangs Buddha ornaments on her Christmas tree it was lively and interesting and educational. One guest had experienced the recent and grave illness of his wife and her recent miraculous recovery so we talked about the afterlife, reincarnation, dreams, heaven, angels, hope and faith. We discussed mortality and the will to live and the power of prayer and good energy. The smallest talk we had was when I complimented our hostess on her dress (it truly was pretty). Its not like Ill never go to another big sparkly party again, but Id much rather sit with a small group and dig deep and leave feeling fulfilled. So, heres a resolution for 2018 listen more, learn more, tell more stories, do more connecting and less flitting perhaps that really is the reason for the season. stephanieDAVIS LOSE WWW.REDBOXDETAIL.COM | 888-895-5790 BEFORE AFTER Premium Weight Loss & Wellness Kit in NaplesSafe-Simple-Natural products and system for home use, no gym necessary.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 BUSINESS A21 personal banker who cares about my assistance, we have been able to acquire state-of-the-art medical equipment that helps us to provide world-class cardiac of myself and the patients you have Kenneth Plunkitt, MD Naples Heart Rhythm Specialists PA MONEY & INVESTINGLow interest rates, attempts to stir production have backfired for U.S. consumersThe word overvalued is being used abundantly these days. The stock market is overvalued. Real estate prices are overvalued. The bond market is overvalued. Bitcoin is overvalued. Even art apparently is overvalued with the recent sale of Leonardo DeVincis Salvador Mundi painting selling for a heart-stopping $450 million. Yet overall inflation is at historical lows, incomes are stagnating and GDP is growing at a snails pace. So how can so many things be overvalued when the overall economic growth is so poor? When economists refer to inflation, they are usually referring to the cost of a basket of consumer goods. For example, the most widely followed inflation rate is the Consumer Price Index, which is the change in price that an average urban consumer would pay for things they use in their everyday lives such as transportation, health care and food. However, there is a different type of inflation called asset inflation. Asset inflation is the change in price of capital goods and investments. This can include stocks, houses, cars, collectables or any other items that are long-lived assets. Typically, asset inflation, consumer good inflation, income and economic growth all move in tandem. After all, it wouldnt make sense that if peoples incomes are dropping, prices would be rising. But today, asset values are skyrocketing while all other metrics are stagnant or falling. There are a few primary reasons for this phenomenon. First, Central Banks across the globe (like the Federal Reserve in the U.S.) have attempted to stimulate their respective economies after the great recession by pumping vast sums of money into circulation and keeping rates low. The thought was that by doing this, consumers would spend more on everyday goods and services and businesses would hire more workers and expand production. Instead, consumers have taken advantage of low rates to buy more assets like cars, houses and stocks, while businesses have bought back stock and paid dividends. This has fueled asset inflation but has not done much for wages or CPI. Second, globalization and automation of production has done wonders for corporate profits and lowering the price of goods to consumers. Unfortunately, it has also put pressure on wages as fewer U.S. workers are needed. As a result we are seeing high stock valuations, yet low wage, CPI and economic growth. This has also resulted in dramatic wealth creation for a small population of investors and corporate executives while the majority of the population has not participated in this wealth creation. It is this percent population that has pushed prices of select assets higher from high-end wines to handbags to cars to beach homes. Finally, high consumer debt for much of the U.S. population has dampened economic growth and consumer spending/prices. U.S. household debt has increased to $13 trillion, stemming from financing everything from houses to education to cars to credit cards. Servicing this debt, even at these historical low interest rates, is stretching most family budgets. So the divergence in asset prices and overall consumer inflation really stems from the dual economies in the U.S. On one hand, we see the average American family, which is seeing stagnant wages and high debt. On the other, investors and corporate executives are experiencing dramatic wealth creation. Until these economies start to come together, I think we will continue to see increased asset inflation with low consumer good inflation. This is good news for equity investors, real estate owners, and car collectors, but not so good for consumer good manufacturers. 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.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. 5 Savvy Quotes About InvestingYou can (and should) learn a lot about investing by reading great books on the subject but you can also learn a lot from some concise words from great thinkers and investors: Warren Buffett: You dont need to be a rocket scientist. Investing is not a game where the guy with the 160 IQ beats the guy with 130 IQ. Common sense and the ability to resist acting out of fear or greed will go a long way toward helping you build wealth. You can outperform many Wall Street money managers just by hanging on to shares of an index fund for decades. Peter Lynch: All you need for a lifetime of successful investing is a few big winners, and the pluses from those will overwhelm the minuses from the stocks that dont work out. Mistakes and losses are inevitable, but some big winners can more than make up for them. John Bogle: If you have trouble imagining a 20 percent loss in the stock market, you shouldnt be in stocks. You should expect big market drops now and then. Ideally, aim to snap up shares of stocks on sale at those times. Benjamin Graham: The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator. This means ... that he should be able to justify every purchase he makes and each price he pays by impersonal, objective reasoning that satisfies him that he is getting more than his moneys worth for his purchase. In other words, always invest rationally, thinking through all your decisions carefully. If youre buying on whims and trading frequently without having researched your investments, youre speculating. Warren Buffett: Wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing. If youve invested in many dozens of individual stocks, youre spreading your money thin. Its best to know your investments well and have your money parked in your 10 or 20 best ideas, not your top 100. If youre not that comfortable, thats OK just opt for a broad-market index fund. Pushy and UnderwhelmingWithout a doubt, my dumbest move was going with a professional money management company that had advertised heavily. They courted me aggressively, and I liked their style. I had doubts before I signed up, though, and they all came true. During the time that they were managing my money (while I paid them 1.25 percent of my assets annually), they lagged the market. Even during the big post-recession recovery, my stocks were down when the Dow was up. And this from a manager who marketed himself as a financial guru. I got a lot of flak from them when I finally ditched them M.S., onlineThe Fool Responds: There are few guarantees when you have others manage your money. Some managers are skilled, while others are less so. Some have a lot of integrity, while others dont. And some are simply lucky during the period you invest with them, while others arent. That common 1.25 percent management fee is a problem, though, because you pay it no matter whether your investments grow or shrink. The company might purport to offer market-beating returns, but if the market grows by 10 percent in one year, you would need to earn more than 11.25 percent in order to beat it, due to the fees. Theres no shame in simply tracking the markets return via an index fund or two. Many charge tiny fees, too. A Biotech on the MoveThe biotech company AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV) has a lot going for it, such as a dividend that recently yielded 3 percent. AbbVies business is strong. It recently reported solid third-quarter results, with its top drugs Humira and Imbruvica posting impressive year-over-year sales growth. It just launched a new hepatitis C virus drug, Mavyret, which has significant potential.Some worry about AbbVies reliance on its autoimmune disease drug, Humira, which recently generated about two-thirds of the companys $28 billion in annualized sales. But theres more to AbbVies future than Humira. AbbVie has a deep pipeline of drugs in development and expects to have more than 20 new drug or indication approvals by the end of 2020. AbbVie has been spending billions of dollars on acquisitions and R&D, and it aims to become a top player in oncology. In 2015, it spent $21 billion to buy 50 percent of the rights to the blood cancer drug Imbruvica, which has seen fastgrowing sales. It also spent more than $5 billion to lock up Rova-T, a cancer drug in clinical trials.Even with its attractive dividend, solid business fundamentals and strong growth prospects, AbbVie stock is still relatively inexpensive. Shares recently traded at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of less than 15. With earnings projected to grow by 14 percent annually over the next few years, the stock should have plenty of room to run. I was born when two soapand candlemaking brothers-in-law joined forces in 1837. In 1933, I produced a radio soap opera, and I aired my first TV commercial in 1939. Today, based in Cincinnati, I oversee more than 20 consumer product brands that each generate more than $1 billion in sales. They include Always, Bounty, Braun, Charmin, Crest, Dawn, Downy, Fusion, Gain, Gillette, Head & Shoulders, IAMS, Mach3, Olay, Oral-B, Pampers, Pantene, Pringles, Tide and Wella. I rake in more than $65 billion annually and recently sported a market value near $225 billion. My logo was once celestial. Who am I? (Answer: Procter & Gamble) The Best TimeQI want to buy some stocks. Is there a best time of day, week, month or year in which to do so? H.L., Lubbock, TexasANot really. Guessing about it is market timing, which is not a road to riches. Instead, invest when youre ready once you have done enough research to be confident that the company is financially healthy and growing, has sustainable advantages over its competitors and has a promising future. You also want the current stock price to be low enough that it offers you a margin of safety and a good chance of growth. Some companies may be wonderful but so overpriced that theyre more likely to retreat for a while than to keep advancing over the next year or so. Estimating a companys fair value is easier said than done, though. Measures such as price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios and price-to-cash flow ratios can help. Favor ratios that are lower than average for the company and lower than those of peers. To polish your analytical chops, keep reading and learning about investing. Once youre confident youve found a great company selling at a good or great price, thats the best time to buy. ***QShould I invest in balanced mutual funds? What are they? P. D., West Palm Beach, FloridaABalanced funds are invested in both stocks and bonds, offering gains from stock appreciation and stock dividends as well as income from bond interest. Many fund families offer balanced funds, often with different proportions of stocks versus bonds. You dont necessarily need a balanced fund, though, since you can invest in separate stock and bond funds. Its also good to diversify with some international holdings, as many foreign economies are growing much faster than Americas. Want more information about stocks?

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Lets Begin the Together he T DR. MOSES K. SHIEH, DO, FACOS DR. RISHI RAMLOGAN, MDCall for Your Appointment Today! 239-309-2680We understand your struggle. We have helped hundreds of patients get their lives back with weight-loss surgery. We support you through every step of the process, before and a er surgery. For your new direction in life, you need a positive attitude, self-discipline and support from friends and loved ones. Count on your team at Surgical Healing Arts Center in the Naples-Fort Myers, Florida area to help you reach and remain at your healthiest SURGICAL PRACTICE SPECIALIZING IN: BARIATRIC, BODY CONTOURING & GENERAL SURGERY WE OFFER: WEIGHT LOSS SOLUTIONS BARIATRIC REVISIONAL SURGERY LAPAROSCOPIC/ROBOTIC SLEEVE ANTI-REFLUX SURGERY POST BARIATRIC BODY CONTOURING SURGERY What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? It is very exciting that there will be more minimally invasive procedures for weight loss. For instance, the new swallowable Obalon gastric balloon recently came upon the market. This fascinating procedure requires no surgery or anesthesia and has helped many to lose weight who have failed many other previous methods. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? More local employers are providing bariatric (weight loss) surgery benefits in their health insurance benefits to help their employees stay fit. Furthermore, the cost of weight-loss surgery has become more affordable at $12,000 to $15,000. Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?1. Thanking our heavenly Father for our success! 2. Quality patient care treating your patients like family, as weightloss surgery is a lifelong endeavor and journey! 3. Quality employees to provide No. 2.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business?It is unfortunate that not all health insurances cover bariatric (weight loss) surgery and its tremendous lifesaving and life-enhancing benefits. Numerous studies have shown the immediate benefits that are seen in treating diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea. Our goal is to help our patients obtain the surgery despite not having insurance coverage for bariatric surgery. Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Our program! Its not just about performing the surgery, but THE SHAC (Surgical Healing Arts Center) PROGRAM. The pre-operative care and the life-long post-operative followups are required to ensure future success in battling this chronic disease called obesity. Furthermore, our practice also performs post massive weightloss body contouring surgery to help remove the excess skin. Our data has shown that compared to the national average, the SHAC Program has helped patients lose more weight and keep the weight off five years and greater.Whats your superpower? Our adage is that, One size does not fit all We use all modalities of weight-loss treatments to ensure the patients life-long success. From behavioral counseling to surgery, we can help each individual patient and dive deeper to understand their circumstances.Facebook? Twitter? Etc.Facebook is a venue used by many, including ourselves, to develop our practice and allow the patients to participate in its growth. We utilize Facebook for not only building our practice but also offer a private group that allows our bariatric patients to communicate with each other, allowing them to discuss their successes and struggles, setup exercise groups and do activities such as posting photos for Transformation Tuesday in an environment that is supportive of their journey. How are you using technology to improve your business? Our practice and company culture continually analyzes four things: (1) data and analytics (this yields information about our patients medical condition and personal needs) (2) clinical protocols (protocols and rules that use best practices to create a plan of care and minimize variability) (3) user experience, assessments and workflow management (we want to be efficient and effective (4) information integration (we are constantly assessing outliers to determine treatment and ongoing quality of care). Part of making good decisions in business is recognizing the poor decisions youve made and why they were poor. Warren BuffettHow are you growing and developing your employee skills?This has been one of our key areas of business development. We are designing an integrated training program where the staff isnt trained in isolation from the clinicians. This cross training has helped elevate both the staff and clinicians through a better understanding at all levels of our practice. We expect our doctors to know how to answer the phones and also expect our staff to have an ear for any patient warning signs. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? Over the last couple years weve had many of the top tier programs reach out to us for internship programs and surgical employment. These clinical training centers have recognized Surgical Healing Arts Center as an all-encompassing bariatric and general surgery center. We can take our patients from step A to Z and have found this to be an asset in determining treatments and on-going health needs. Plus, our patients become our family after spending so much time with us. Can you tell us about a new hire that will make a positive impact this coming year?We have recently hired two staff members who have had bariatric surgery. We think that having had this surgery, our patients and staff can share their experiences and help each other going forward. What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?Always remember that there are a lot of smart, caring, committed, professional health care workers who do not have D.O. or M.D. degr ees behind their names.

now claim it as our own. Food trucks often appear in the same spot regularly, but they are mobile after all, and traverse the region. If youre looking for a specific truck, its advisable to check its website, Facebook, Instagram or other social media feeds, which savvy owners update with their location on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Here are a handful of new trucks on the scene and some old standbys as well.Mobstah LobstahPort Charlotte residents Edyta Jarocka and her husband Andy Degaetano brought their lobster and seafood truck, Mobstah Lobstah, over to the southwest coast from Hollywood Beach in May. Lobster rolls ($16) are their signature item, a simple and succulent sandwich featuring lobster imported from Saco, Me. Its not rocket science, Mr. Degaetano, 59, said. You put your heart and soul into your food. The customers taste it and the customers know it. The couple moved to Florida five years ago from the Hudson Valley area of New York State and have found plenty of people here who appreciate Mobstah Lobstahs northeastern flavors. Its not just Midwesterners that come to the gulf coast, Mr. Degaetano, a Brooklyn native, said. There are a lot of people from New England. Weve been very kindly embraced. Look for the Mobstah Lobstah truck at farmers markets, festivals and breweries from Naples to Sarasota. Check www. or follow the truck on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to find out where itll be parked next. BuddhaBlendsIf youre craving a chill, healthy and vegan dish, the BuddhaBlends food truck serves a variety of smoothie bowls created by North Naples residents Kyle Govan, 22, and his fiance Ariana Warnock, 21. Mr. Govans favorite smoothie bowl is the Purple Haze ($8). We describe it as kind of like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, he said about the bowl that includes peanut butt er and berries, hemp milk and cacao nibs. The Peanut B utter Bliss BuddhaBlends version of a chocolate peanut butt er cup with a banana on top is a top seller. Mr. Govan grew up in the Clearwater area and moved to Southwest Florida to attend Florida Gulf Coast University, where he is a junior majoring in entrepreneurship. He and Ms. Warnock are vegan and wanted to bring a healthier food option to the area, he said. As far as they know, BuddhaBlends is the first vegan food truck in Southwest Florida. Were pretty proud of that, he added. You can find updates on where theyll be on Facebook and Instagram as well as on their website, www.buddhablendsft.comMa Petite CreperieOn a hot Wednesday afternoon at the Lakes Park Farmers Market in Fort Myers, Myriam Schlewer, the owner of Ma Petite Creperie, was folding ingredients together into fragrant, cheesy buckwheat crepes. From her food truck she dishes out both sweet and savory crepes, the latter proving more popular than she expected. Theyre made with dark buckwheat batter (which happens to be gluten free) in the French Brittany or Northwest French tradition and are not what Americans used to sweet crepes might expect, she said. Ms. Schlewer, 50, emigrated here from France and lives in Cape Coral. She marked the first anniversary of Ma Petite in October. One of her favorite dishes is her Alsace crepe with bacon, onion sauce and Swiss cheese ($8.50). In addition to crepes, she makes pastries, soups and sandwiches. Until the end of April, Ma Petite Creperie will be at the Lakes Park Market on Wednesdays, Cape Coral Farmers Market on Saturdays and Sanibel Island Farmers Market on Sundays, as well as at local breweries. You can keep up with the schedule on Facebook.The Thursday Food Truck Rally at Fort Myers Brewing CompanyThe big doors of the warehouse space were rolled open to a darkening sky where Cassiopeia soon twinkled like a crouching spider. The beer was flowing freely, but the adults were well behaved while a toddler making her way among the picnic tables listed to port. Five food trucks ringed the parking lot, a tradition at Fort Myers B rewing on Thursday night for about the last 3 years. At the Red Rock Craving truck, Chef Hector Cordero was working a growing line by himself, serving up his signature Mexican-American inspired fare, such as an Achilles nachos special ($12), a decadent hill of a meal including an array of classic nacho toppings with a twist: Doritos. The Nosh Trucks classic Korean BBQ pork tacos with Asian slaw ($7) paired well with a Sun Jugler wheat beer ($5). And later, the leftover nachos paired well with part of a leftover taco. Brewery owners Jennifer Gratz-Whyte, 40, and her husband Rob Whyte, 46, live in Fort Myers. When they started their food truck tradition with the Nosh Truck there were only a handful of trucks on the scene. Now Ms. Gratz-Whyte estimates there are roughly 50 Southwest Florida trucks. Hosting the trucks is also a collaborative business model that allows her to focus on being a brewery while offering food without many of the hassles of being a restaurant owner. So whats her favorite dish? Totally depends on my mood, she said. I lived in San Diego before I moved here, so I look for good Mexican.

Two sofas perpendicular to the fireplace are upholstered in bisque linen. Two easy chairs face the fireplace, while a 60 x 60-inch cocktail table makes a statement with its heavy glass top.

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBeach Club sets Mediterra apartI hope everyone had a great week! After I completed my tour of London Bay Homes model homes in the Cabreo neighborhood at Mediterra last week, I mentioned to my Sales Executive, Lisa, that I would really like to revisit the communitys 10,000 squarefoot Beach Club. Its just a short drive from Mediterra on Little Hickory Island. Lisa had taken me there several weeks ago, and I thought it was amazing. No other community I had considered as a possible place to live had anything close. That first Beach Club visit was quick, and I wanted to go back and find out what it was like to spend an afternoon enjoying the setting. So, Lisa gave me a pass and I went back by myself. When I arrived, I noticed there is plenty of on-property parking. No worries there. An elevator took me to the second level and opened to a beautiful bar and indoor dining room. I explained the nature of my visit to the hostess. She smiled and proceeded to give me the lowdown. It turns out the Beach Club was recently remodeled. Whoever did the interior design knew what they were doing. The room conveys the magic of the beach with colors reminiscent of the sand and water and South Beach casual elegance. Everything looked comfortable and on-trend to me. From what the hostess told me, once the renovation was completed, the bar area took on a sportier feeling with large screen televisions. It also morphed into a wine bar overseen by Mediterras two sommeliers. An extensive wine list includes 20 wines for just $20 per bottle. The dining room opened to an al fresco dining area right on the Gulf of Mexico. The breeze was delightful! I decided to sit outside and they sat me at a table on the railing closest to the beach. After ordering a glass of Pinot Noir, I looked at the menu and was pleasantly surprised. In addition to on-the-beach casual dining favorites like burgers, wraps, and gourmet sandwiches, it included complex dishes, such as such as seared ahi tuna with a glass-noodle stir fry and smoked-chicken pasta with sun-dried tomatoes. When I asked the server about the menu, he explained to me that the Beach Clubs culinary team is overseen by Carmen Mauceri, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and winner of the American Culinary Federation Award of Excellence and Chef de Cuisine for a Presidential Dinner. He also oversees the dining menus at the Mediterra clubhouse. Executive chef Chris Fragola and sous chef Shane Dorey, both of whom are certified chefs de cuisine, vary the Beach Clubs menu on a regular basis while retaining the diners favorites. I do not know of any other community beach club in Southwest Florida that offers that level of expertise. As I enjoyed my beachside lunch, I took in the surroundings. Right next to the Beach Clubs outdoor terrace dining area, I was taken by the Clubs elevated swimming pool that features a sundeck overlooking the Gulf. Enthusiastic attendants were setting up beach chairs and umbrellas for the sun worshipers down on the beach. After I finished lunch, I ventured down to the beach to enjoy the breeze and the sunshine. Afterwards, I stopped by the ladies locker room to freshen up a bit. As I should have expected, the locker room had everything I could have possibly needed all the basics a lady likes to have after an afternoon at the beach. I decided to have a glass of wine at the bar before heading home. I got into a conversation with a couple who have lived at Mediterra for several years. They raved about how wonderful it was to have the Beach Club. They went on to talk about the awards Mediterra has won, including the Collier Building Industry Associations 2017 Sand Dollar Award for Community of the Year Over $1 Million. The award marked the eleventh time Mediterra has been honored as CBIAs Community of the Year in the past 15 years. But, that was just the start. They told me The Club at Mediterra has been designated as both a Top 50 Platinum and Distinguished Emerald Club. The Emerald Club designation puts Mediterra in the top 5% of all country clubs in the world. The Club was named recipient of an Aurora Award for Best Residential Development within the Southeastern United States and is number 49 on the Top Tier Club list, a list voted by 6,000 club managers nationwide. No other club in Collier County is included. Mediterra has also been named the Best Place to Retire in Florida and 10th best in the world since 2014 by Best Retirement Destinations. In addition, The Club at Mediterra was named one of the healthiest Clubs in the United States, and was the first private residential Club to be honored with a Green certification. The Club is home to the worlds first golf course to be recognized as an Audubon Silver Sanctuary. I had no idea Mediterra was such a prestigious place! What a wonderful day! The sunset was awesome! Im going to be gone for a few weeks visiting family for the holidays. Ill be back in touch soon. In the meantime, all the best! Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road. The Sales Center and model residences are open daily. Visit Mediterra online at Above: The Mediterra Beach Clubs elevated swimming pool features a sundeck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

Furniture was recently delivered to the rooftop pool. Consisting of comfortable chaise lounges, dining tables and chairs, and plush conversation areas, the placement of each piece offers the perfect vantage point for breathtaking sunsets daily. Whether lounging poolside or enjoying the company of friends in our community room, the views from the rooftop can only be described as spectacular, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. From here, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, several nature preserves and even two of the highest ranked beaches in the United States. Theres not another place like it in Southwest Florida. Additionally, the rooftop amenity area is home to a barbecue station and an open-air fitness center with a cantilevered roof that opens and closes. We had very high expectations for our sky amenities and I must admit that those expectations have been exceeded on every level, she added. The first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resort-lifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, will be ready for occupancy by the end of the year and is currently more than 90 percent sold. The approaching completion of its construction phase, as well as the near sellout of Tower 1, prompted Kalea Bay to release Tower 2 at the beginning of this year. Currently, the number of residences already under contract in the second tower exceeds the $60 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units 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. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the towers rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys 88,000-square-foot club amenity center, which is due to open on January 5. This area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a stateof-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 will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, said Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as eight pickleball courts, and guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, has been hired as the Clubs General Manager. The same holds true for its tennis program with the recent hiring of Nestor Nunez as Director of Tennis. Kalea Bays Inga Lodge and Lori Pheasant are also among the best in their industry. During the recent Sand Dollar Awards, sponsored by the Collier Building Industry Association, Lodge was named the Sales Manager of the Year and Pheasant took home the Sales Person of the Year award. The three furnished models at Kalea Bay, which are located in Tower 1, also received several prestigious Sand Dollar Awards in a multitude of categories including, two for Interior Design of the Year and two for Best Specialty feature. One of the models also won in the category Best Closet Design. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile.

B12 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYNew town, new home, new car...Builders expanding the list of reasons to Make the Move to Babcock RanchPre-construction incentives are driving rapid sales for homebuilders at Babcock Ranch. More than a dozen new contracts have been signed since pre-sales opened in early November for two new neighorhoods. Lennars twin-villas starting at prices in the $190s and single family homes by both Lennar and Pulte from the low $200s are meeting pent up demand among both young families and empty nesters. All Babcock Ranch builders are getting involved with attractive Make the Move offers to drive sales in advance of the official grand opening of the solar-powered town next March. Florida Lifestyle Homes new offer is a great example. The builders twostory Lauren model in the environmentally-friendly new town will come equipped with a brand new electric car for the garage. When we started looking at the types of incentives we wanted to put together for Babcock Ranch we wanted to focus in on what the town is all about sustainability, environmental stewardship, renewable energy, explained Denise Ogden of Florida Lifestyle Homes. All of the exciting new things that are incorporated into the town are creating a whole new lifestyle at Babcock Ranch and we wanted to equip that in a really powerful way. Florida Lifestyle led off its preconstruction push in early November with the offer of an innovative Pedelec electric assist bicycle to anyone who contracts for construction of a new home before the end of 2017. The electric car will go to the buyer of their largest finished model the 4,000-plus square foot Lauren. Located on Lake Timber Drive, the home features a two-story great room and an expansive second story complete with two loft areas, a bonus room and a fourth bedroom. The buyer will have the turn-key option of moving right into the model which comes fully furnished by Norris Furniture Interiors or, if they prefer, they can take advantage of a 5% model leaseback program. Either way theyll get their choice of either a Chevy Volt hybrid or the all-electric Chevy Bolt. As an added bonus Florida Lifestyle will pass along the $7,500 tax credit that will accompany their purchase of the electric vehicle from Estero Bay Chevrolet. General Motors rolled out the new, longer-range model of the all-electric Chevy Bolt in Florida last spring with a road trip to Babcock Ranch. The solar-powered town located just northeast of Fort Myers off of State Road 31 was designed with electric cars in mind. Founders Square, the initial downtown district, is equipped with multiple charging stations where electric vehicles can plug in for a free charge. Every garage at Babcock Ranch comes wired to accommodate electric cars. We are fortunate to have outstanding building partners who share our commitment to environmental sustainability, said Syd Kitson, Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. The electric bike and car offers are a creative way to promote the whole new lifestyle that homebuyers will experience at Babcock Ranch. During the new towns first annual Holiday Tree Lighting celebration, a reception held at The Hatchery a collaborative work space located above Slaters Provisions and Goods in the new towns initial downtown district of Founders Square gave future residents their first opportunity to get to know their neighbors. While they come from all over the country they discovered a shared passion for adventure. We really like the idea of being pioneers, said James Aveck. He and his wife Donna will settle into their new Lake Timber neighborhood home in mid-January. Weve always been early adopters of new innovations to us, change is a positive thing. Sharon Bishop and her husband have been travel to southwest Florida every winter for several years, enjoying the RV life while escaping colder months at their home in Gulfport, Mississippi. When we came to visit Babcock Ranch last spring we realized this was something would really enjoy with all the outdoor activities, the trails, and the environmental and solar aspects of it, Bishop said. I dont think we would have left Gulfport behind for any other place. have done it any other place. This is a place we can settle down and call home. We just love the whole concept. The Bishops are avid bicyclists, and have already brought the cycling group from their RV resort out to Babcock for a ride. We have several friends from the RV resort who we hope will be joining us here, Bishop said. Weve been brining everyone out here to take a look at it because we are so excited. Several of the early Lennar homebuyers said theyve been ready to sign contracts since the builder announced plans to build at Babcock last spring. Jeff and Arlene Smith were first in line to sign a contract and select a lot for one of Lennars Twin Villas in the Trails Edge neighborhood. They barely beat out the first multi-generational homebuyers at Babcock Ranch. Karen and Bob Whitmore, and their mother Shirley Whitmore signed the second and third contracts with Lennar to build attached villas at Trails Edge. From the first time we drove into Babcock Ranch we just got a very good feel, Karen explained. Weve been looking for the right place to downsize and simplify. Our single family homes in Estero are more than we need, and the town has just gotten to be too much. Here, we get the feel of a real hometown. We cant wait to settle in.

Below Left: All three neighborhoods currently under construction are in easy walking distance of Founders Square.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYEven more to love at London Bay Homes second Port Royal Estate modelSpeechless. I cant even tell you how many times my husband and I just stood in silence taking in the views or only simply could get out the word wow as we toured London Bay Homes custom estate model at 4375 Gordon Drive in Port Royal. It started the moment we stepped inside and saw right out to the glistening water of Cutlass C ove, the mangroves of Keewaydin Island and the picturesque foliageframed pass that provides quick access to the Gulf of Mexico. Hello, boat, I thought as I walked up to the great rooms floor-to-ceiling windows, my eye diverted to the pools shimmering mosaic gray tile. I imagined the parties and overnight guests we could host throughout its 6,394 square feet either in the formal dining room or on the large patio, which has an outdoor kitchen. Then, I followed the steps down to a secluded firepit, my husband and Toby Cloutier, our London Bay Homes sales executive, trying to keep up. I soaked in the view then turned to look at the pool, noticing the two water features on each side of the steps and three water spouts in the wall above the pool. All finished in the same beautiful mosaic tile. Although the model is under construction, I could easily envision the calming sight and sound of the water. Toby pointed out the rounded tiled edges of the spa bench. Its very comfortable, he said. I marveled at that obvious attention to detail something Ive never seen before and how the pools water will be flush with the deck surface. Inside, we discovered more features and finishes weve come to recognize as an enhanced luxury of a London Bay home, with interior design by Romanza. Details like an opaque glass window between the dining room and floating staircase, light ash wood flooring, lacquered kitchen cabinets, and the sheen of gold subway tiled walls in one guest shower and the blue in another. Our love affair with Naples has reached the point where were very serious about buying a new home, and London Bay is our first choice. Weve been exploring the many opportunities offered by its Naples Collection, which features fully furnished custom models and the option to build on a homesite of our choice. London Bays downtown estates were just a quick stroll to Fifth Avenue South and our favorite bartender at Bar Tulia. Then, Toby introduced us to the two models on Gordon Drive, near the southern point of Port Royal and our vision became even grander. At 4375 Gordon Drive, wed have membership eligibility at the beachfront Cutlass Cove Beach Club and a larger private dock for a 37-foot boat. This estate has four guest rooms on its second floor and amenities that would accommodate our many visitors an elevator, loft and lounge sitting areas, a wet bar and a terrace overlooking the pool and cove. One VIP suite has a large bay window with glorious cove views; another is a guest apartment with its own morning bar. Each has a resortstyle bathroom. The first-floor master suite is also incredible, and the bedroom has a floorto-ceiling bay window overlooking the cove. There are also two large walk-in closets with plenty of room for my new designer outfits from Marissa Collections on nearby Third Street South, a lovely shopping and dining district we recently discovered. The estate also has a study for my husband to work from home, although he recently confessed hes rethinking that plan. Theres just so much to do in Naples I dont think I could concentrate. I cant let you have all the fun, he joked. Ah, so the plot thickens: It looks like well be buying a home pretty soon. To schedule a visit and learn more about London Bay Homes exclusive downtown Naples opportunities, call Toby Cloutier at 239-280-7367 or visit London Bay Homes custom estate in Port Royal will offer five bedrooms and showcase water views with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that open to outdoor gathering areas.ADVERTORIAL

C4-5 BY CINDY PIERCEcpierce@ oridaweekly.comWe had such success (250-plus short stories) and fun with this years Florida Weekly Writing Challenge that we dont want to wait until next summer to tap back into our readers collective gift with words. So weve come up with an endof-the-year exercise we hope youll be inspired to try. Heres how you can play. Think about your year and then set it to haiku. Those three lines arent exactly a stellar example, but they were written on deadline and they do conform to the basic rules of the ancient form of Japanese poetry: three lines written in 5/7/5 syllable count. Although Wikipedias entry for haiku goes deeper and references the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related, we like the Academy of American Poetrys observation that haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity and directness of expression. Five, seven and five. Seventeen syllables. Done. Yes, you can haiku. Our only other requirement is that your haiku hint at something about 2017 that stands out for you, whether its a milestone or one small moment, a natural disaster or a personal dilemma. And because were all hopeful about 2018, you can also compose a forward-looking haiku if you choose. Send your haiku or two (but no more) in the body of an email (no attachments) to Be sure to include your full name, the town where you live and a phone number where we can reach/text you should we want to know more about your ditty. Well print as many of our favorites as space allows in the final Florida Weekly of 2017. Dozens have come in already. Please send yours soon. Its easy and fun.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSDueling narratives interact in a literary mastery of North Florida ethos Blood Shot by Michael Lister. Pulpwood Press. 346 pages. Trade paperback, $17.99. How many writers come up with a novel that is a sequel to two of their earlier novels? Perhaps only one: the supertalented and tireless Michael Lister. His Blood Shot, No. 15 in the John Jordan Mysteries series, is also a follow-up to Double Exposure, a Remington James Novel. Do you need to know this? Well, there is plenty to enjoy without such information. However, Mr. Lister might be leaning a bit too heavily on his established fan base. For example, characters names are dropped that will mean nothing to a new Lister reader. Set in the northwest section of Florida and taking us deep into heavily forested areas of great natural beauty that Mr. Lister describes with profound passion and acute vision, this novel runs along two rails separated by three years. The chapters alternate. Those labeled then trace the movements of photographer Remington James. Those labeled now follow sheriffs department investigator John Jordans search to bring James killer or killers to justice one way or another. Jordan is committed to help his good friend and James widow, Heather, find closure. Its a cold case that needs to be heated up. Earlier investigations seem to have lacked commitment or worse. We meet James making his way through the disorienting woods, looking for the opportunity to snap the perfect picture and speculating about the source and cause of a distant scream. In subsequent then sections he is questioned about what he was doing on his own land and warned about staying too long as darkness falls. He does, in fact, get lost. When he finds one of his camera traps, he scrolls through the images on the memory card. He finds plenty of great shots of wildlife, and then the random horror his camera has captured a murder. He becomes panicky, wondering of the killer is still out there. And he is going to find out. In the now sections, Jordans effort to find James murderer connects with the attempt to discover what lies behind the murder of the former sheriff of Gulf County and several of his men, each executed one by one with their own guns. Jordans relationship with his boss and other law enforcement associates is developed in a context that suggest that lawmen are participating in or ignoring certain crimes. There is an enormous amount of money coming from a huge marijuana enterprise. Readers attention swings back and forth between James attempt to save himself and his evidence from those who are pursuing him and Jordans attempt to bring down James murderer, which in the strand means keeping himself alive and protecting family and friends. Suspense rides the two rails as the timelines move toward an ultimate intersection. The two interacting narratives maintain distinct stylist features. The now segments are cast as conventional firstperson narrative. Jordans distinctive voice relates the perplexities of the case he pursues, his love for his profession, his frustration with the moral imperfection that surrounds him and his adoration for his wife, Anna. Since these sections contain the extension of the John Jordan series, readers who know the series can benefit from the references to other cases and characters in Jordans career. The then segments work quite differently. The author develops a pulsing narrative style, a jaggedly poetic representation of James thoughts and emotions as he plays hide-and-seek with pursuers through the threatening darkness. As Remington James trips, falls, rolls, hides and struggles to get his bearings, Mr. Lister often uses a staccato barrage of sentence fragments to convey the intensity of pain, fear and desperation his character must endure. Its a great ride, fully original and with twists and turns that will leave you breathless. About the authorMichael Lister grew up in North Florida near the Gulf of Mexico and the Apalachicola River in Wewahitchka, a small town wor ld-famous for tupelo honey (which figures in this novel). Truly a regional writer, North Florida is his beat. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in theology with an emphasis on myth and narrative. Much of his work as a crime novelist grows out of his experiences as a prison chaplain at Florida Panhandle correctional institutions.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C3 Holidays stir memories and inspire hope scott SIMMONS Some holiday seasons are better than others. Some are downright tragic. It has weighed on me as one friend recently lost her mother and I learned that a wonderful former neighbor lost her son, whom I remember as a lad. To them, I say this: I hope memories help you heal. My bte noire was 2005. That was the year lung cancer took my dad from us, inch by excruciating inch. His death that Dec. 31 capped a year that included the devastation of Hurricane Wilma and the continued mental decline of my dear grandmother. I was in no mood to celebrate the December holidays as work deadlines loomed and my dad continued his final descent. But I think we all knew there was something out there far greater than our misery. What was it? Id like to think it was love, backed by a hearty helping of hope. For me, the turning point came when I went home to Fort Myers for a week that December. My mother and I decorated one of the prettiest Christmas trees weve ever found a lush Fraser fir that held hundreds of ornaments including many with which she and I had grown up. Those traditions and that fragrant fir reminded us that life goes on. I spent a week with my dad, taking him to doctor appointments and to final visits with friends. We spent a lot of time together talking and a lot of time simply saying nothing. Im glad we had the time. When he died three days after his 67th birthday, it was a good parting, even if it came too soon. Thats what I take away from the 2005 holiday. My dad never cared much for Christmas he was born Dec. 28, so the holiday may have stolen some of his birthday thunder as a child. I think of him often this time of year. I also think of Grandma I remember the joy she took in trimming the tree and in telling me tales of holidays past, especially of her mother-in-law, Martha Bolender. Sometimes, last times are the best times. Thats how my grandmother, Kathryn Bolender, viewed Christmas 1948. Like my dad, Grandma Bolender died too young she was only 58 when she died unexpectedly in September 1949. My mother, also named Martha, and aunt, Georganne, were 9 and 7 respectively, and have little memory of their grandmother. But the Christmas before she died was one of celebration everyone in the family was there. Grandma Bolender splurged, buying my mother and aunt 20-inch Madame Alexander bride dolls, which cost about $25 each at a time when minimum wage was 40 cents an hour and the average annual salary was around $3,600. As the familys 16mm home movies reveal, the girls reveled in their dolls. Georganne gave hers away, but Martha, now Martha Bolender Simmons, kept hers and it now serves as a bookend to one of the finest collections of antique dolls in Florida. The first Martha Bolender had a blast that holiday, and everyone remembered it as the magical Christmas that turned out to be her last. Grandma would sigh and shake her head at the loss, but smile at the memory thank goodness for memories. Im grateful we have the home movies to validate and continue Grandmas memories As you may have noticed, much of my collecting and much of my writing are tied to memories. Thats because the value we often assign to objects is related to the memories they evoke. Marcel Proust wrote a whole book on the notion. But those objects are just things. So, while the toys and the trinkets we share may fade, the memories of a better time endure. They sustain us by reminding us of what weve had and they offer us the hope better times will return. For we have nothing without hope. SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYAbove: Georganne Bolender Moyer and Martha Bolender Simmons, seen in home movie footage, hold their dolls in 1948.

At Naples Zoo now through April 15, 2018. PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE NAPLESZOO.ORG 239.262.5409 ARTS COMMENTARYFlorida Reps Ballyhoo delivers laughs along with a powerful punchLike a flapper wearing a whalebone corset underneath her fringe-y dress, The Last Night of Ballyhoo is a comedy with serious underpinnings. Its humorous in its frivolity until prejudice makes its presence known. This anti-Semitism doesnt make a grand entrance but, we realize, has been on stage the entire time, nesting, paradoxically, in the hearts of those who are themselves Jewish. This 1997 Tony Award-winning play (and Pulitzer Prize finalist) by Alfred Uhry (who also wrote Driving Miss Daisy) brings us into the lives of an upperclass Jewish family in 1939 Atlanta. Adolph (V Craig Heidenreich) lives in a big house with his widowed sister, Beulah, called Boo (Carrie Lund), and his widowed sister-in-law, Reba (a delightfully ditzy Stacey Scott). Each woman has a daughter. Boos daughter is Lala (Jackie Schram), a flighty young woman given to fits of over-dramatization. Gone With the Wind has just opened in the theaters, and shes obsessed with it. Rebas daughter, Sunny (Olivia Howell), is the polar opposite: smart, intelligent, mature. Shes coming home for Christmas break from Wellesley College. Boo is like the mother in The Glass Menagerie: Shes made it her lifes mission to get her 22-year-old daughter married. And yes, there is a gentleman caller. Ballyhoo is coming, and it might be Lalas last chance, she fears. What is Ballyhoo? A yearly social event attended by college-aged Southern Jews hoping to find someone they might eventually marry. Its a series of luncheons and hayrides, culminating in a dance on the last night. Only young people from the best families attend and to this family and others, that means only German Jews, not those from Russia or Poland or elsewhere. Shut out of the WASP country clubs, theyve established their own and in turn, have restricted membership to only German Jews. One night, Adolph brings home an employee for dinner. Joe (Britt Michael Gordon) is from Brooklyn and has impressed Adolph as a hard-worker, intelligent and polite. Lala thinks hes cute, but her mother looks down her nose at him: hes from Brooklyn, and the wrong type of Jew. And then Joe meets Sunny. The genius of this play, and this ensemble deftly led by director Greg Longenhagen, is that it deals with such a serious topic with an oh-so-light touch. Were laughing at a funny line or a humorous delivery, only to be sucker-punched with ugliness that spills so easily and thoughtlessly from someones lips. Treated as inferior by Southern society, they turn around and act superior to nonGerman Jews, though they share the same faith and beliefs. But this family is Jewish Lite, as they celebrate Christmas, complete with a giant tree in the front window, and have just a faint idea of what Passover is. Theyre trying their best to assimilate, to blend in with everyone else and work their way up in Southern society. Appearances and impressions are everything to them. This cast works extremely well together, bickering and fussing with each other just like real family. Ms. Lund is a terror, an unhappy woman taking out her unhappiness on everyone else. I thought wed be happy when we grew up, she says to her brother at one point. What do you think happened? Its a rare moment of self-reflection for her. She scowls and says her lines as if shes just tasted something distasteful, garnering many laughs from the audience. She throws tinsel at the Christmas tree in big, angry clumps. She had skills and talents that werent put to use when she was younger, and now she feels overlooked. Though this is brought up, it seems glossed over in the play. Mr. Heidenreichs character is amiable, and much put-upon in the household. Adolph often seems mystified by whats going on around him. His scenes with his niece Sunny are sweet and genuine, but like Ms. Lund, he delivers some zingers, too, hitting them straight out of the park with emphasis and spin. Hes such a likeable character, were shocked to realize he shares the same selective anti-Semitism as the rest of his family. Ms. Sco ttes humor comes out of left field, and the actress is smart enough to play her character like a real person, resisting the temptation to create her with too-broad strokes. Her Reba is scatterbrained, yes, but also human and perhaps smarter than everyone gives her credit for being. Meanwhile, Ms. Schram portrays Lala like a gangly, impetuous 13-year-old in a 22-year-olds body, complete with hysterics and temper tantrums and interests that change as rapidly as the weather. The growing romance between Joe and Sunny is one of the sweetest things in Ballyhoo, and the two actors play it perfectly. Theres the awkwardness in each others presence, and then one moment where the two tenderly gaze at each other across a room, expressing hope, longing and love without words. Mr. Gordon, who was so amazing as a deaf son in Florida Reps production of Tribes, is equally incredible here as a New Yorker trying to make sense of these southerners. Both he and Ms. Howell play good, honest people in a way that is genuine and not saccharine. David Freidlander, who arrives late in the action, has the opposite task: He plays a thoroughly unlikeable, smirky young man whos full of himself. He is wildly successful at creating a character you love to hate. But unfortunately, his accent is so thick, its impossible to decipher at times. I missed much of what he said because I couldnt understand him. Set and lighting designer Bert Scott has given this family a lavish Spanish-style home that looks move-in ready. Its so complete and realistic its easy to believe a family really does live there. And its so spacious, it looks as though Mr. Scott somehow doubled the space of the Florida Rep stage (though I also felt bad for the actors, having to traverse so much ground). Costume designer Alice Neff has created stunning outfits for this play. Ms. Lund, in particular, has some great era dresses. And Lalas monster of a dress for Ballyhoo would rival Scarlett OHaras (or Carol Burnetts parody of it). I was surprised by the abrupt ending of The Last Night of Ballyhoo, although in retrospect, it makes sense. Just like the proverbial steel magnolia or iron fist in a velvet gl ove, this play is all sweetness and gentility and humor, with a knockout punch thatll have you on the canvas, wondering how that happened.

THANK YOU Presents CONTRACT BRIDGENow you see it now you dontBY STEVE BECKERIn assessing his prospects in a suit contract, declarer is usually better off if he counts his potential losers. In most hands, this will give him a clearer idea of where he stands and what he has to do than if he starts by counting his winners. But this is a rule of convenience only, and declarer should feel free to readjust his sights whenever the occasion calls for it. Here is an example. West leads a diamond against four hearts. Declarer plays low from dummy, and East wins with the king and returns the king of spades, taken by South with the ace. The only losing tricks appear to be two spades and a diamond, but when declarer plays the ace of hearts and West shows out, South learns he has a trump loser also. This unlucky break seems to presage defeat, since South now has four losers, but he can still make 10 tricks if he plays carefully. He first cashes the ace of clubs, then crosses to dummy with a diamond and ruffs a club. This process is repeated by leading another diamond to dummy and ruffing a second club. South next cashes the king of hearts and plays a heart to the queen. At this point he has won nine tricks a spade, two diamonds, a club, two club ruffs in his hand and the A-K-Q of hearts. He is now in dummy and leads the ten of clubs. East has three cards left the Q-J of spades and jack of hearts, all theoretically winners. South has three cards left two low spades and the eight of hearts, all theoretically losers. But the club play from dummy renders East's position untenable. If he discards, South ruffs with the eight to score his 10th trick, while if he trumps the club, South discards a spade and later scores the game-going trick with the heart eight. One of Easts winners simply vanishes. 489 Bayfront Place Naples FL 239.530.2225 HAPPYHOUR MONDAY-FRIDAY 3-6pm 1/2 Price OFF ALL PIZZAS $2.50 Domestic Drafts$4 Wells $4 House Wines Come check out our NEW menu selections including 12oz NY Strip, Ahi Poke Nachos, Lobster Mac-n-Cheese and much more!!!

C16 WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell) Frustrated that the town police chief (Harrelson) has made little progress in solving her daughters murder, fiery Mildred (McDormand) pays for strong words on three billboards to move the investigation along. The performances and script are tremendous, and best of all, the film has real personality. Its a sure Oscar contender. Rated R. The Disaster Artist (James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen) Hollywood failures, friends Tommy (James Franco) and Greg (Dave Franco), decide to make their own film, The Room, which inadvertently becomes a cult classic as one of the worst movies ever made. Funny without being mean-spirited, its a great movie about the making of a terrible movie. Rated R.The Man Who Invented Christmas (Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce) Its the story of how Charles Dickens (Stevens) wrote A Christmas Carol and in doing so established many of the Christmas traditions and sentiments we still hold dear today. At least, thats what it thinks its about. It really doesnt do any of that well, and as a result plays like a lump of coal in your stocking. Rated PG.Daddys Home 2 (Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson) Co-dads Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell) have their own fathers (Gibson and John Lithgow) come to town for Christmas, which leads to family chaos. Its notably funnier than its 2015 predecessor, and is the perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit this year. Rated PG-13. Justice League 1/2(Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa) Batman (Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gadot) bring in new recruits to help them fight off an alien bad guy intent on taking over the world. It starts slow, but some levity in the second half makes it enjoyable. Rated PG-13.Thor: Ragnarok 1/2(Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett) Thor (Hemsworth) and Hulk (Ruffalo) must save Thors home planet of Asgard from the villainess Hela (Blanchett). The action and visual effects are top notch, and best of all, its hilarious from start to finish. Rated PG-13.Wonderstruck 1/2(Julianne Moore, Millicent Simmonds, Oakes Fegley) In separate storylines set 50 years apart (1927 and 1957), deaf 12-year-olds (Simmonds and Fegley) in New York City search for what they feel their lives are missing. Strong performances, great visuals and masterful direction from Todd Haynes (Carol) make this one of the nicest and most fulfilling movie experiences of the year. Rated PG. FILM CAPSULES

PeaNaples First Medispa VOLUMA XC LATEST FILMSWonder WheelIs it worth $10? NoKate Winslet is a fine actress, but she cant do it alone. Writer/director Woody Allens Wonder Wheel showcases her talent in the plum role of an emotionally frail 1950s waitress whose prospects for happiness are quickly dwindling. However, neither the story nor her cast mates is worthy of her abilities. This is a visually splendid yet often mundane movie thats neither funny nor dramatically interesting. Winslets Ginny once aspired to be an actress, but is now a waitress at Rubys Clam Shack on the Coney Island boardwalk. Shes married to Humpty (Jim Belushi), an insensitive brute who runs the merry-go-round and loves fishing. Ginny hates fishing. In fact, she doesnt seem to have much in common with Humpty at all.Its no surprise, then, that Ginny takes a liking to Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a lifeguard on the beach whos studying for a masters degree in drama. An affair begins and she sees a future for them, while Mickey just wants to spend time with Humptys daughter from another marriage, Carolina (Juno Temple). Subplots abound, including Carolina being wanted by mobsters (The Sopranos Steve Schirripa and Tony Sirico) and Ginnys son from another marriage, Richie (Jack Gore), setting fire to everything. The problem is none of it adds up to much. At the end of 101 minutes youre left with a shoulder shrug and disappointment rather than the adrenaline rush of great drama. Allens first mistake was making Mickey the narrator. Hes the least interesting character, and Timberlake doesnt have the dramatic chops to play the role convincingly. It has the same downer effect as Nick Carraway narrating The Great Gatsby why have someone so dull telling the salacious tale? Even when hes expressing emotions, Timberlakes Mickey is a blank slate. And his yearning for Carolina, which were supposed to believe is genuine, renders as little more than another conquest. In contrast, you feel every ounce of struggle and heartache in Winslets performance. Much is said with the defeated look in her eyes, the frantic nature of her behavior and her desperate body language. The British actress also handles the New York accent without taking it too far, and she seems to be the only actor on screen who really gets the cadence of Allens script. Kudos, though, to the production design and visual effects work, as it really looks and feels as though it were shot on Coney Island in the 1950s. Allens movies arent often visually interesting, so if you find yourself taken by the lighting, cinematography (by Vittorio Storaro) and/or production design (Santo Loquasto), you will not be alone. This is probably the most visually accomplished film Allen has made. Unfortunately, the visuals arent enough. Wonder Wheel tries to engage you in its heart-wrenching drama but never succeeds. Only Allen die-hards should bother with this one, and even they should proceed with caution. s a o p d n dan >> Woody Allen is 82 years young; Wonder Wheel is the 47th feature lm hes directed.Did you know?


Flamingo Court starts the New Year for community troupe on Marco SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Marco Players embrace the emotions, the humor and the lifestyle of what its like to grow older while condo living in South Florida with the troupes first production of the New Year: Flamingo Court: Life in Three Condos. After retiring to Florida, Luigi Creatore wrote Flamingo Court for the local community theater in Boca Raton. When it was produced in New York, it was a hit with seniors and audiences of all ages. Two-thirds comedy and one-third somberness, the play embraces the issues and lifestyle of aging, romance and sickness. There are 10 characters, but its written so actors can play double or triple roles. Paula Keenan directs the production for The Marco Players. Flamingo Court stretches both the actors and me partly due to the crazy rehearsal schedule that spans across the three winter holidays, Ms. Keenan says. The cast has been fabulous and flexible, which leads me to confidently say we have no worries, she adds. The Marco Players season continues as follows: Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling Feb. 7-25 A Bench in the Sun by Ron Clark March 14-April 8 GPS: An Auto-Erotic Comedy and In the Beginning by Bruce Kane April 25-May 13 Lunchbox shows: Joe Marinos Rockin Piano and Mob Hits Show Jan. 13 Dusty Storm Tongue-in-Cheek Country Music Comedy by Debi Guthery Feb. 10 J.Robert: The Florida Fiddler Show, Chapter 2 Feb. 24 Elemental Women by Janina Birtolo March 10 C18 WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I Do...

Can you tell me how shes doing? Barbara F.A: Arianne is one classy lady, and shes handling the renewed interest in the allegations of President Trumps inappropriate sexual misconduct from years past with grace and with a drive to try to effect change. Trump recently disputed the veracity of the Access Hollywood tape where he is talking with host Billy Bush about things rich men can do to women without asking. (Thats about all the detail Im going to go into because it disgusts me.) Arianne was the actress they were on the NBC studio lot to meet for a backstage tour of Days of Our Lives. Arianne told me: I feel like there is some responsibility there (for me to speak up), but finding a way to do it is hard. I do know the first thing for anyone who has gone through any type of physical situation against their will is healing. How do you start that? Where do you go? Who do you talk to? You hear the way men spoke in the s and 0s about women; that was the way, and you dealt with it. How do we reprogram our children to not think that way? Im in a position where I can help from the heart. But Arianne is not all about recent hot-button issues: Shes also starring in the Lifetime thriller called Web Cam Girls, which premieres Saturday, Dec. 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. According to Arianne, its a psychological thriller based on family relationships. So many parents have these relationships with their children that go sour how do you find that way back? How do you bring your kid back? Thats what I really love about this movie because, in some shape or form, every parent goes through something like this with their teenager. Q: Do you have any House of Cards news? Brian K., BaltimoreA: Production on the hit Netflix drama was halted amid sexual harassment and assault allegations against series star Kevin Spacey. The streaming giant recently announced that Spacey will not be involved when production resumes in early 2018, The sixth and final season will consist of eight episodes instead of the usual 13. The story will center on Robin Wrights character, newly elected President Claire Underwood.

The Grilled Steak Salad is a delight with a flavorful seared 6-ounce flat iron steak sliced and served atop arugula, baby beet greens, spinach and mesclun. Its tossed with the just-sharp-enough horseradish vinaigrette s dash of mustard, tart apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Pure paleo. Sandwiches at Patrics come with a choice of sweet potato fries (my fave), carrot salad or fruit. Co-owner Gary Teaters freshbaked fruit pies and two-fisted size cookies quickly sell out.

PAST REPASTSHere are some summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Another Broken Egg Caf 670 Tamiami Trail N., Naples 300-0696 While Another Broken Egg offers traditional items, theres lots of unusual fare, too. Crab cakes topped with poached eggs and Andouille-infused Hollandaise, for example. Omelets with lobsters and Brie and even breakfast appetizers, like the Baked Brie Delight a slab of warm cheese served with apples, raisins and pecans lightly sauted in Grand Marnier butter sauce paired with toasted French bread. Other winners: a large bowl of house-made granola, fruit and quinoa with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt; the Bacquezo, an omelet with cream cheese, bacon, chorizo, Monterey Jack and green onions; and the Hey Lucy! omelet with chorizo, sauted onions, green chiles and cheddar. A Belgian waffle and gluten-free pancakes were top-notch as well. A bonus: The staff is uniformly welcoming and efficient. Lunch served, too. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 KC American Bistro Pavilion Shopping Center 885 Vanderbilt Beach Road Naples; 566-2371 Never mind that you cant see this place from the road, concealed as it is on the side of a shopping center thats not the center of the Neapolitan universe. KC American Bistro has a loyal following and for good reason: Chef/owner Keith Casey is talented and creative and runs a first-class restaurant thats only gotten better in the eight years since he opened. Dishes are grouped by the region of the country from which they originate, and its fun to mix and match. The Florida fresh ceviche, consisting of black grouper and yellowfin tuna with corn and bell pepper in a citrus marinade and cilantro crme fraiche, was less spicy than most, but flavorful nonetheless. The Maryland blue crab souffl was full of lump crab, lightly browned and crisp on a pool of sweet corn puree. Troll king salmon encrusted in pumpkin seeds came atop a stellar sweet potato gratin and the zinfandel braised short rib was fork tender and devoid of fat, made even better by a wild mushroom veal jus. Parsnip-laced mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts were perfect accompaniments. For dessert, the house-made chocolate ganache with wild berry coulis was rich and just right for two. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2017 Mediterrano 336 13th Ave. S., Naples; 261-7498 There arent many places where 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 suggest 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 I recommend for sharing. 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 2016 Petars Restaurant 3300 Bonita Beach Road Bonita Springs; 494-1343 Petars seats only 32 indoors and a handful outside and serves just a halfdozen each of appetizers and entrees. But former Ritz-Carlton chef Petar Al Kurdi proves theres a lot to be said for offering a small menu, cooking with the freshest seasonal ingredients and plating each dish with precision and panache. His crab cakes are so free of filler ingredients that it was difficult to tell what was holding the moist jumbo lump meat together. Fresh pasta and skillfully simmered risotto are mainstays, and exquisite Wagyu beef may turn up as a juicy strip steak with parsnip puree or tucked into Bolognese with pasta. Each dish from appetizer to entree was garnished with snippets of green herbs such as dill and parsley, which added a final flourish of freshness to the plates. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed: February 2016 St. Germain Steakhouse 03 Bayfront Place, Naples; 435-9353 Most of us know the Germain name in connection with car dealerships, but these days its also the name of an upscale steakhouse that took the place of Stoneys at Bayfront Place. The food is well executed and steaks come with potatoes and, in some cases, vegetables (a rarity at steakhouses). Appetizers of black mussels in white pernod sauce, grilled calamari steaks with roasted red pepper and carrot puree and a steakhouse wedge salad were generously portioned and noteworthy. So were the entrees, which ranged from a 14-ounce veal chop to 12-ounce prime rib to a grouper fillet with pomegranate beurre blanc. A slice of Key lime pie was good, while a pistachio and cheery bread pudding was the meals only disappointment. Full bar.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 14-20, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C31 CUISINEZos Kitchen may inspire you to Live MedIts not often that a new corporate restaurant breaking into the Southwest Florida market is cause for notice, but when I scanned the menu of Zos Kitchen online my interest and my appetite soared.Lamb kafta, farro and quinoa salads, pitas stuffed with salmon or Greek chicken, cauliflower rice bowls and savory sauces such as Moroccan harissa, Greek tzatziki and Middle Eastern skhug at a chain restaurant? And a fast-casual concept at that? Zos Kitchen invites patrons to Live Med, as in embrace the cuisine and mindset of the Mediterranean region. Its an invitation I will happily accept, as someone whos trying to eat more fresh vegetables and whole grains. Zos approach emphasizes grilling lean meats there are no microwaves or fryers in the kitchens and seasoning food generously with naturally flavorful fresh herbs, pungent spices and lemon. There are plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options for those with special dietary needs. Theres also an authenticity to Zos food that bucks the usual corporate mentality of shying away from intense flavors that rattle mild American palates. (Im talking to you, Chipotle and Pei Wei.) The Mediterranean region boasts a tremendously diverse range of cuisines Greek, Italian, Spanish, Moroccan, Turkish, to name a few which would seem challenging to represent faithfully.That Zos is able to accomplish all this within the confines of the lower price point and quicker service expectations of the fast-casual model is even more impressive. Our appetizers were served within 10 minutes of our order being placed, and staff members checked in on us several times while clearing dishes. Proteins and vegetables were well balanced and plated with care, not haphazardly thrown together (take that, Panera).These are things you dont take for granted in the fast-casual world. Founded in 1995, Zos Kitchen has more than 200 locations in 20 states across the United States though I should admit Id never heard of it before stores opened recently in Estero and Naples. Another is planned late next year in south Fort Myers. The Estero restaurant is in Coconut Trace across from Coconut Point (next to a Chipotle), and it could give some of the malls lesser dining chains a run for their money. Zos dishes may be rooted in centuries-old tradition, but its design and dcor is purely modern: exposed ductwork overhead, bold graphics on the walls, with furnishings that pop with colors like lime and seafoam green, tangerine and sunny yellow. Its worth studying Zos menu before you approach the counter to order. Many dishes can be customized with different proteins and sauces, so you want to consider all the options. We started with a hummus trio ($6.99), a platter including cucumbers, grape tomatoes and green peppers. The classic hummus was a bit thin in texture and flavor, our trio agreed. More garlic and lemon would have helped punch it up to the level of the pesto and harissa versions, which were just delicious. We ran out of pita triangles before we ran out of hummus; when I asked our server for more she promptly obliged. A cup of chicken and orzo soup ($3.39) was comfortingly simple and familiar. There was a good ratio of diced carrots and celery to the pulled chunks of white meat, which still had some natural juice unlike chicken that has been simmering in broth for hours and given up its flavor and moisture. For an extra charge ($4.39), I added two chicken kabobs to the Live Med salad ($7.99), but it would have been ample even without the protein. It was a vibrant bowl of raw zucchini and yellow squash ribbons, fresh spinach and other crisp greens, pesto-laced farro, crisp pickled lupini beans, grape tomatoes and grilled peppers and red onion, all lightly dressed with a bold Calabrian pepper dressing. Thats a mouthful, and it made for two meals with the addition of the succulent grilled chicken, which was marinated with oregano and other spices.Sandwich options include stuffed pitas, grilled Italian flatbreads called piadini and grilled turkey or steak on sourdough. The salmon pita ($10.59 including one side) was packed with harissa-marinated fish (the menu describes all of the sauces in case you dont know this is a roasted red pepper sauce), as well as red cabbage slaw, lots of freshly crumbled feta, dill and creamy tzatziki sauce. The combination of flavors was striking. The braised white beans we chose as a side were lushly textured and seasoned with rosemary.Cauliflower rice has become popular lately as a carb-free alternative, and Zos pairs the grated vegetable with lots of fresh dill as well as tzatziki, feta, cucumbers and Middle Eastern skhug (a bright, citrusy sauce featuring spicy green peppers, cilantro, lemon, extra-virgin olive oil and Mediterranean spices). We added a trio of lamb kafta for ($10.99), but you can order it with other proteins or none at all. The cauliflower was like snowflakes stark-white kernels that practically melted on the tongue with the fresh-tasting tzatziki adding a tangy note. The gamey undertone that some people associate with lamb was tamed by the addition of ground beef to the meatballs without completely losing the lamb and the kafta were neither dry nor greasy. Was that a hint of cinnamon in there, too? From start to finish, Zos Kitchen is full of surprises not least of which is that a chain restaurant could actually be inspiring and make you want to Live Med. drew DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe food may be rooted in centuries-old tradition, but Zos design and dcor is purely modern.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC.DAWN HARMONSpend any time chatting with interior designer Dawn Harmon of Little Palm Design Group and it quickly becomes apparent she has her clients best interests at heart. Capable of creating a multitude of looks from sophisticated to contemporary to classic shes always firing on all cylinders. Luxe Livings Michael Korb talked to her about her craft and inspirations. Q: When renovating a space, what do you think makes the biggest impact? A: As our precious beachfront gets sparer, we are making huge improvements and renovations on older structures. It is so satisfying to dramatically improve homes from earlier times. By opening up the walls we allow for more light, better views and functional open spaces. Additionally, with interesting ceiling details and new, smaller LED lighting, we are better able to light different areas and create architecturally interesting homes. Q: What do you think has the most lasting power from a style standpoint: wood, stone, paint or fabric? A: Many stones are neutral classics that can stand the test of time and can be chameleons, allowing for other elements to change around them as tastes and styles evolve through the years. On the other hand, fabrics and paints tend to be more trendy and easy to change with the fashions. Q: Do you have a formula for how you create a space? A: Form follows function. The initial steps I take are to establish the needs of the space, the wants and wishes and desired style. Next, with this information, I create a space plan. This visual representation of the area configures the interior elements in a functional, cohesive manner. By drawing out the arrangement of elements on a scaled plan, one finds the optimal use of the space ensuring proper proportion, efficiency and flow. Creating this plan then allows one to have a road map to move ahead.

4 LUXE LIVING DECEMBER 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY Q: What do you ask your clients in order to help you get started? A: Inspiration can truly come from anywhere. I have literally started design projects around such crazy things as a bath towel, a mug and a Makenzie Childs teapot. Art is often a starting point, as are rugs. And of course, magazines and the popular websites Houzz and Pinterest are where many clients find ways to express their wants. If someone is unsure, I ask them to gather a collection of things that make them happy. I try to look within and think about what I want a space to say. I am often inspired by a feeling. Q: Is there a current trend that youre excited about? A: Being a native Floridian, the coastal trend is really my happy place. In Southwest Florida, it allows us to embrace our extraordinary area. The natural elements, the textures, colors and mix of organic materials feels so comfortable. Additionally, I love using the more contemporary, clean lines. Mixing the contemporary and the coastal is really fabulous. Even traditional design has turned toward much more simplified composition with less elaborate details that create classic, sophisticated spaces with a new twist.

8 LUXE LIVING DECEMBER 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentIf there is an architectural design style putting up a legitimate fight to the overwhelming number of New Florida coastal contemporaries being built today, its the West Indies-style home. With low-pitched rooflines, Bahamas shutters and interesting corbels and balcony railings, theyre basically kissing cousins of New Florida, but with tans and browns and natural wood where white on white tends to dominate. This subtle example on Crayton Road in the Moorings neighborhood, built by T. Jerulle Construction, encompasses all the modern needs Naples residents require. The 4,430-square-foot, four bedroom (plus study), four fulland two 1/2-bath property was built as a spec home but was quickly snatched up by homeowner Jon Wagner. While the house was still in its construction phase, the builder had brought in interior designer Faith Fix of Freestyle Interiors and, along with architect John Titus, they collaborated on making an interior that works beautifully. Terry (Jerulle) wanted some interesting features that would be memorable, says Ms. Fix. So I added a large window to the master bath where it actually feels like youre showering outdoors. Its really quite nice. They also added reverse trays on some ceilings, a spectacular coffered ceiling in the kitchen and a radical X-pattern ceiling in the master bedroom. We had fun, Ms. Fix says. While some of the reverse trays and coffers made sense in order to accommodate mechanicals, she adds, they are also beautiful. In the great room, where the ceiling reaches a height of 21 feet, Ms. Fix decided on a feature over the fireplace and television The home just felt right to owner Jon Wagner thanks to its unpretentious attitude and its terri c location just blocks from the beach. At 4,430 square feet, its large enough to allow for comfort but small enough to feel homey.

FLORIDA WEEKLY DECEMBER 2017 LUXE LIVING 9COVER STORYOwner Jon Wagner says he uses the outdoor grill at least two or three times a week. But even when he uses the chefgrade kitchen (left), he and his family still take the meal outside to enjoy the stunning pool area (above). And who can blame them? Its the details that make a house a home. While bonuses such as a reading nook, an oversized laundry rooms and a home of ce (across top) are nice, when youre the owner of a food truck business and related to the famed Johnsonville sausage family, its the outdoor grilling station (above) that gets you excited. that includes a trough of river rock. That detail is only seen from the second floor catwalk overlooking the space. In fact, the view from there is enhanced thanks to a glass railing that keeps the visual noise to a minimum. An entertainment wall of three-dimensional gray split stone surrounding a linear fireplace bookended by illuminated display cabinets anchors the great room. A deceptively large space, the room opens to a marvelous kitchen that blends whites, grays and taupes (over hardwoods floors) with professional-grade brushed stainless steel appliances and chrome island seating. And as pretty as all of it is, the real pice de rstistance is the deep-set coffering above. Its a winner from every angle in the main living area. The wine cellar is artfully placed nearby under the stairs, but visible thanks to a glass wall. Its a focal point from the dining room, Ms. Fix says about the wine cellar. There could have been hidden storage there, but we decided to add a wine cooler and a corking station. When filled with bottles, it sure makes one thirsty. The expansive master suite, which is separate from the rest of the bedrooms and opens directly to the pool area, feaSEE MUSE, PAGE 10

Custom cabinetry draws the eye, but a glass partition creates a wet room with smart tile work framing a large window overlooking the private master garden. Its almost like bathing or showering outdoors but without the headache of bugs and lizards making your acquaintance. Speaking of the outdoors, the homes exterior living spaces include a lovely resort-grade swimming pool replete with a custom water wall and fountain feature, spa, fire table, trellised seating area, outdoor shower and lush landscaping. And because Mr. Wagner happens to be a food truck empresario not to mention a scion of the Johnsonville sausage empire the homes summer kitchen and outdoor living room are fit for any occasion. Throw some brats on the grill, turn on a football game and take a quick dip in the pool, and its clear this home was designed to enjoy life to the fullest. And isnt that what life in the West Indies (and Naples) is supposed to be all about? T.

BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentTaking a chance on yourself is always an admirable bet. But when you have the background of David Fruscione, the owner of Republic of Decor, youve got to like the odds. The 42-year-old entrepreneur worked for close to two decades in retail architecture designing stores for Banana Republic (both domestically and internationally) as well as Chicos and its various incarnations. When Chicos had its big layoff, Mr. Fruscione decided the time was right to gamble on himself. Thats when he opened his 1,500-square-foot store in the heart of the Naples Design District. Im really excited to be a part of this movement happening in the Design District, he says. I saw a lot of potential in this area. But thats not to say there havent been challenges. His stores location, right next to the new restaurants TimelessAn MHK Eatery and La Colmar Bakery and Bistro, meant he had to deal with a construction zone right outside for months after he opened two years ago (on Black Friday). Now, with the restaurants open and construction disruptions a thing of the past, customers can get back to shopping for the curated dcor the store has become known for. I work really hard to find products that are from up-and-coming lines that dont have representation in Naples, Mr. Fruscione says about his inventory. I find artists on Instagram that dont sell here. Im selective and I curate the products so there is a pull to it, an energy to it. People are coming to me for those unique, fresh, statement pieces that are focal points. From hand-blown glass to hand-thrown pots (where Mr. Fruscione works directly with the artists to select shape and color) to gorgeous pillows, lamps, vases, picture frames, wallpapers, furnishings and much, much more, Republic of Decor has become a destination unto itself. It even has a little gourmet food section (a microwavable fondue is flying off the shelves these days). Sometimes I feel like people come in here and do their grocery shopping, says SHOP TALKCurated retail Republic of Decor is a magnet for stylish livingTIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYCurated by owner David Fruscione, the array of unique home accessories makes Republic of Decor a must-shop in the Naples Design District. David Fruscione spent most of his professional life designing stores for Banana Republic and Chicos before deciding to go out on his own and open Republic of Decor in the Naples Design District. 14 LUXE LIVING DECEMBER 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY Naples 239.775.5100, 4600 Tamiami Tr.

Mr. Fruscione. But its the dcor that has everyone talking. So much so that Mr. Fruscione has started providing interior design services for clients. People come in, talk to me, see my vibe, my aesthetic thats what helps me get those contracts, he says. You hear that the first two years (in business) are the toughest, and its sort of true. But Ive gotten through that and I feel a shift of energy. More and more people are starting to know that I exist. Im starting to get on peoples radar. And thats rewarding. Its a unique and distinctive store. And its a must-see for anyone interested in making a lovely home.
