C1 One year after a record number of people across the globe marched in political protest, anniversary womens marches are scheduled across the country Jan. 20-21 in a movement some call Womens March 2.0. The Womens March on Jan. 21, 2017, in Washington, D.C., prompted by Hillary Clinton losing the election to President Trump (and held the day after his inauguration) inspired sister marches across the country. An estimated 4 million people marched nationwide. The national nonprofit Womens March was formed. This year the national march is set for Jan. 21 in Las Vegas, Nev., to launch the Womens March agenda: #PowerToThe Polls. The womens marches network will kick off an initiative to register 1 million women to vote in conjunction with voters rights organizations. The project will continue throughout the year, ahead of the 2018 National Voter Registration Day in September and Novembers midterm elections. On its website, the organization states weve seen how powerful we are when we gather together, share space and lift Naples among Florida cities hosting womens marches SEE MARCHES, A6 HINK BACK 25 YEARS, HINK BACK 25 YEARS, right into the early right into the early days of the Clinton days of the Clinton administration when administration when Walkin Lawton Walkin Lawton Chiles was governor Chiles was governor of Florida (hed once walked of Florida (hed once walked from Pensacola to Key West from Pensacola to Key West in a U.S. Senate race) and the in a U.S. Senate race) and the population of Palm Beach population of Palm Beach County, for example, was just County, for example, was just under 900,000 residents, about under 900,000 residents, about SEE HOUSE, A10 HOUSETSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018Vol. X, No. 12 FREE

COMMENTARYO CanadaLet me kick around some soft demographics and a couple of faux epiphanies and maybe an entirely rational notion (but only one of those damn things) with two or three wild conjectures, an odious comparison and a couple of impudent invectives, eh? First of all, Californias population includes 3 million more people than Canadas, the worlds second largest nation with something on the order of 9.9 million square kilometers. Almost 40 million Californians find themselves stuffed into that little squeezebox, but fewer than 37 million Canadians inhabit the vast lands to the north of our borders. So what do they do with all that extra room up there? I dont know, but clearly most of it is uninhabitable to sensible humans its just too cold. Theres the city of Toronto, of course, and a pleasant little town in the Rockies called Banff and a charming French restaurant, Europa, on the other end of the country in Montreal, on Mountain Street. Anybody could live in those places, even Floridians. At Europa, for example, you can sit down to Homard de la Gaspesie en fricassee et au beurre. Ris de veau caramelizes au Porto, tagliatelles XXL faiches a la crme de Vermouth et de zesta de citron. Truffles fraiche et foie gras rape. And all for a relatively inexpensive price: your first born, your car or your house, depending on which looks better and causes less trouble. The Canadians have turned the rest over to indigenous species: some 25,000 grizzly bears and 500,000 black bears, all of whom have voting rights, free medical care and honorary memberships in the middle class. Canadas middle class, in fact, has now surpassed ours as the most prosperous in the world, defined by median annual income which means Canadians should now update their national anthem for accuracy. Called O Canada because the songwriters couldnt figure out what else to say before Canada (Looky here, didnt seem to work), the anthem has three or four lines now slightly antiquated: Glorious deeds circle your brow/For your arm knows how to wield the sword/Your arm knows how to carry the cross Perhaps they should add, And your brain knows how make a middle class, before finishing with the traditional lines: Your history is an epic/ of brilliant deeds! As Ive noted before in this space, both times the United States tried to invade Canada and take over we got our rear ends handed to us on a block of ice, with a polite invitation and a smile: Try again anytime, boys, eh? Those were brilliant deeds, yes. And so is the creation of a large and prosperous middle class. I attribute all of it, as any rational person would, to Canadas extraordinary prime minister, the winner of a special committees Blue Ribbon Pedigree Prize for Finest Looking Statesman in the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. You probably know him by one or two of his four names: Justin Pierre James Trudeau, PC MP. When I mentioned a few weeks ago that Prime Minister Trudeau should offer Americans the chance to become the 11th Province Canada only has 10, and God knows we need some help from somewhere I was guilty of making a false assumption, the first since 1975: I assumed that Mr. Trudeau had won both the trust and the deep respect of all Canadians, and they would happily, to a man and woman, defer to his judgment in the matter. I am bitterly disappointed to have to admit that is not the case. There is one Canadian, at least, who wishes Mr. Trudeaus name were Trump. He would not be pleased if, for example, Mr. Trump and co. were fed to a polar bear while the U.S. joined Canada with hat in hand, humbled and relieved. (Polar bears in Canada are on welfare now unlike grizzlies and black bears, because theyre running out of ice, so they could use the high-calorie food supplement.) He wrote me this letter: I read your column with interest in Florida Weekly, especially this week I, as a Canadian, do not agree with your idea that all Canadians are opposed to Trump and pro-Trudeau. This is not so. I have my Make America Great Again hat and am hoping that this airhead Trudeau will be a one-term-only prime minister. We suffered through his father so we dont need him, too. What we need is our version of Trump! Thanks, Peter Bondsfield. Mr. Bondsfield appears to disagree with many of his fellow Canadians, probably the ones who eat in old Montreal at Europa where they dont print menus in English, or those who prefer to speak one or two of the 65 other distinct languages and dialects Canadians share besides English. English happens to be the native tongue to only 57 percent of the country, people with names like Bondsfield. French is the first language for about 21 percent, and my personal favorite, Mohawk, is still spoken by 290 people, according the Canadas Official Languages Commissioner. Do we Americans have an Official Languages Commissioner? No. We werent smart enough to think of that. But they do. He has plenty to say, too, and not just about life there, in the north, in O Canada: In the same way that race is at the core of what it means to be American and at the core of an American experience, and class is at the core of a British experience, I think that language is at the core of a Canadian experience, said Commissioner Raymond Theberge. And here I thought it was God, Guns and Guts at the core of our experience. d g p o b o roger

After the college Division I championship, the other professional league the NFL will decide whos No. 1 with its playoffs and the Super Bowl, of course. The Super Bowl has become a grotesque salute to so much of what makes America what we are these days: extremely expensive excess that is only for the filthy rich; a garish halftime show; the intrigue this year about which players will ignore its contrived patriotism; and, certainly, the game itself, with injuries on seemingly every play. But most of all, the event fills the need for some venue to show those grossly expensive, clever commercials. Its a financial orgy that only the U. S. of A. could present. I wouldnt miss it. Like so many in this country, Im also mesmerized by our nonstop political unnecessary roughness. I am hooked by its bizarre characters and gross plot twists. It, too, has come to symbolize the worst of America, with greed and malice taking over a system that is supposed to serve the people but serves only a few of them the wealthy rulers who put in office the lackeys who will obediently protect their interests. But yes, I tune in religiously, along with everyone else. And, there will be some thriller matchups to begin the new year. Thats because, appropriately, Congress has punted everything to January. On Jan. 19, funding for the government runs out, meaning if the two parties cant come to some sort of big creative give-andtake, well finally have that government shutdown that has been avoided so far through schemes that delay the inevitable, the only agreements that anyone has been able to reach. That is going to require some deal on, among other contentious issues, the Dreamers. The Dreamers are the thousands of illegal immigrant children who, thanks to an order from President Donald Trump, will be forced to leave the nation where they were raised and deported to countries they havent seen since infancy. Everyone at least pays lip service to the idea that their plight should be solved, except that Trump insists the deal must include some funding for his wall. Put Democrats down in the no way column. Thats not the only play to be called in this disaster of a game we call the government of the United States. Theres the debt ceiling. Congress must approve a raise in the ceiling, and soon. Actually, weve already hit the ceiling, but our Treasury officials have been performing financial sleight of hand so that the government can keep borrowing. At stake, ultimately would be the ability to make the national debt payments and avoid the historic international embarrassment of the U.S. defaulting on its sovereign debt. Oh, I almost forgot that this is election year. Its the midterms, when all of the House seats are up, and a third of the Senates. Thanks to Donald Trump, Democrats see an opportunity to take over both if they can get organized. Thats a huge if. In fact, this years campaign is the real Super Bowl. Nothing else matters to these guys but being elected. The more accurate name for it would be the Stupid Bowl. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. The man who saved civilizationThis years best movie about a spirited band of resisters fighting an empire of evil isnt the latest entry in the Star Wars franchise, but Darkest Hour, an extraordinarily deft and moving depiction of the outset of Winston Churchills reign as prime minister during World War II. Cabinet meetings and political intrigue arent the most natural cinematic material, although the underlying event in Darkest Hour is one of the most dramatic in modern history: One man standing defiant before the onslaught of an enemy army, rallying his nation with his willpower and words. Discounting for Hollywood embellishments, the movie is worthy of this story, which is high praise indeed. In particular, Gary Oldmans portrayal of Churchill is so compelling that the Academy Award for best actor should be signed, sealed and delivered to him right now. Upon taking power, Churchill faced disaster on every front in the war, yet bucked internal political pressure to explore a deal with Adolf Hitler. In his marvelous history of this crucial interlude, Five Days in London: May 1940, the great historian John Lukacs writes, Then and there he saved Britain and Europe, and Western civilization. In 1937, Churchills reputation had been at a low ebb, but he recovered on the strength of his acuteness about Hitler. When Neville Chamberlain returned from Munich, Churchill gave a speech in the House of Commons declaring we have sustained a total and unmitigated defeat. Britains position slid downward from there. The same day that Churchill became prime minister, Hitlers army invaded Western Europe in earnest, sweeping all before it and eventually trapping the British at Dunkirk. Given the circumstances, the desire of Viscount Halifax, Churchills inherited foreign secretary, to explore peace terms wasnt unreasonable, just profoundly wrong. Churchill opposed any deal. He was convinced, Lukacs notes, that such a settlement, under any conditions, could not be counter-balanced by a maintenance, let alone a guarantee, of British liberty and independence. Churchill bent a little toward Halifax when he initially felt it politically necessary, but ground him down and ultimately outmaneuvered him. In a key episode, Churchill went to the larger Cabinet and won overwhelming approval for his stalwartness. Here, he made his famous statement, We shall go and we shall fight it out, here or elsewhere, and if at last the long story is to end, it were better it should end, not through surrender, but only when we are rolling senseless on the ground. After the war, Churchill wrote of the reaction of his colleagues: Quite a number seemed to jump up from the table and came running to my chair, shouting and patting me on the back. There is no doubt had I at this juncture faltered at all in leading the nation, I should have been hurled out of office. He didnt falter. Churchill tapped into and built up the resolve of the British people. There was a white glow, he wrote later, overpowering, sublime, which ran through our island from end to end. The so-called Great Man theory of history might be overly simplistic, but history indisputably has its great men. Darkest Hour does justice to one of them.

Join us in Las Vegas as we prepare to take that power to the polls. Together, we will show this administration that women are not backing down. Nevada was chosen as the national site because it has recent experience with some of the most pressing issues facing women in our nation today, from gun violence to politicians accused of sexual assault. As a swing-state that will shape the Senate in 2018 and as home to a strong activist network, Nevada is the perfect place to commemorate the Womens March and continue building our electoral power. Marches are set in scores of other cities across the country. In Florida, marches have been scheduled for Naples, Miami, Orlando, Jacksonville and St. Petersburg. In 2017, several thousand marchers gathered in Naples, organized through the Collier Freedom Movement. Its aims, according to its website, are to create an inclusive community regardless of race, nationality, faith or sexual orientation for a common vision of freedom, equality and social justice. This years march in Naples, dubbed Women Together for Freedom March and Rally, by the movements Facebook page, already has hundreds of confirmed attendees. Naples resident and Print Page USA business owner Mollie Page took her 18-year-old daughter to the Naples march last year. It was an important time for her, Ms. Page recalled. She got to vote for the first time, so she was really feeling the benefits of adulthood. I figured, lets go, lets vote, lets get active. Shes interested in political science, so it was great for her to see. The Naples event is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. on Jan. 20 when marchers will line up at the corner of Third Street and Broad Avenue in Naples, with the rally beginning at 5 p.m. at Cambier Park. Its time to shake up paradise and stand up for what we believe in, organizers wrote on the event page. We stand together in support of equal rights for all women, minorities and immigrants. Womens rights are human rights, as all people deserve to be treated equally. The Womens Alliance has kept a running list of worldwide protests on Facebook that will take place the weekend of Jan. 20 and 21. View the list at https:// MARCHESFrom page 1

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYthe current population of Lee and Charlotte counties, today: Back then, public pay phones were common, nobody had a smart phone and only some people had mobile phones, those big clunkers they carried in cars. But theyd heard of the thing: the IBM Simon, the first of its prolific kind. Although smart-phone technology had stepped into the world, it was merely a marvel; few in Florida had a smart phone, and none of those phones were very smart anyway, by todays standards, not unless having a calculator on the phone counts (it was a little more than that, actually). Now, say the experts, were roughly in the same position when it comes to Smart Homes. This week, Florida Weekly considers what that might mean for many of us within roughly a single 30-year mortgage cycle, by or before midcentury. And now, with the population of Palm Beach County roughly equal to the population of Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties combined, at 1.4 million, almost every person 14 years or older carries most of the worlds knowledge in his or her palm, in a smart phone. With that phone comes the opportunity to talk and see someone on another continent in real time, or the ability to locate precise positions right down to the square yard, or the capacity to see whos at your front door from 1,000 miles away that is, if you live in a smart house. But most of us dont live in smart houses. Yet. The technology is all here, were all here, but its the interface: How do you make it something intuitive and useful on a daily basis to everybody? Thats the hard part, suggests Jeff Mudgett, a Fort Myers-based architect at Parker-Mudgett-Smith Architects Inc. Steve Jobs made the interface easy (between the technology and the user, or different technologies for the user). Before that, for technically advanced people and people who used it every day, it was fine. But he made it almost flawless, for everybody. Mr. Jobs, who together with Steve Wozniak founded Apple, pioneered such culture-altering devices as the iPod, iPad, and the iPhone. So, with smart homes, its the same thing: its who designs the best interface, Mr. Mudgett added. The technologies are here and have been for a few years. We know about them, just as we once knew about smart cell phones. Some of us 10 to 15 percent, experts estimate currently integrate the new technologies into our home lives, and into the first of the futures smart homes and communities. But sooner rather than later, within a single mortgage cycle of about 30 years, perhaps, the great majority of us will be living in smart homes.The Jetsons visionFor one thing, this means huge business opportunities for those looking at the future. Already a variety of hightech companies are engaged in head-to-head competition to offer devices that make living in your home more like living in a palace with servants to do your every bidding, something most Americans have only ever read about as European or rich-American affectations or maybe theyve seen it on the early 1960s animated show, The Jetsons. The devices are voice activated, and they can be used to work with a wide range of home necessities: power, entertainment, security, food, cleaning, repairing and the like. That means companies building such home apparatus as washing machines or stoves or lighting systems or heat and airconditioning units or robots that do basic house chores, or door-locks that recognize and open for one person but not others will compete to make their products compatible; technologys economic chain, with its company alliances and links of profit and convenience, already stretches deeply into the culture. Case in point: the competition between Amazon and Google to provide versatile, adaptive control systems or hubs for home technologies. In 2014 Amazon introduced its Echo speaker, now several iterations on, which works with a product called Amazon Alexa, named for the ancient great library of Alexandria, Egypt once said to carry all the knowledge humans knew and had written down (it was burned to the ground in 48 B.C., probably by Roman troops operating under Julius Caesar). The Echo advertisement now seems so exciting one wants to rush right out and buy one for about $150, then step into a new world described this way: Echo Plus is a simple way to start your smart home. It has built-in ZigBee smart home hub, which allows for simple and direct setup of compatible ZigBee lights, locks, plugs and in-wall switches from brands like Philips Hue, GE, and Yale. No additional hub required. Echo Plus connects to Alexa a cloud-based voice service to play music, make calls, set timers and music alarms, ask questions, check traffic and weather, and more instantly. The glorious vision goes on, offering luscious detail and concluding with one more thought: Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new features and skills (a skill is similar to a setting on your cell phone). Just ask Alexa to control your TV, request an Uber, order a pizza, and more. Paul Whitelamb, a marketing vice president at a Massachusetts-based company called ClickSoftware the company helps businesses and individuals make decisions about best use of the new technologies offered this note in an online observation to www.futureofeverything. io: Smart homes just got smarter with news that Whirlpools new appliances will be compatible with Amazons Alexa voice assistant. Its hard to imagine, but well soon be asking our washing machine to do the laundry without lifting a finger. Theres huge potential for other industries like traditional service companies (think cable, phone and utilities). You might want to just drop everything and order one (on Amazon, of course). But wait; dont forget Google Home, introduced first in 2016 and with the Google Assistant built in. A reviewer introduced it this way in the British tech-review publication, A Wi-Fi speaker that also works as a smart-home control centre (British spelling) and an assistant for the whole family. Even for the British, some of whom are used to butlers and assistants and maids and servants and what-not, this is pretty good. It can playback entertainment throughout your entire home, effortlessly manage everyday tasks, and ask Google things you want to know. So, while youre streaming music from the cloud, you can also set alarms and timers and manage to-do lists and shopping lists support popular network systems to control smart lights, switches, doors, and Google (products). Youll also find yourself booking a car, ordering dinner, or sending flowers to a loved one. You have to find a loved one to send flowers to in the first place, of course, and so far, neither Amazons Echo Plus with Alexa or Google Home with the built-in assistant has offered technology that can do that. But things change quickly.HOUSEFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOS / SHUTTERSTOCK Google Home technology, like most of its competitors, allows voice control of most house functions.VANDY MAJOR / COURTESY PHOTOJetsons-like connectivity will be routine from every public place in the country, and beyond.


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 NEWS A11Meanwhile, youll be able to do all of the above simply by using your voice. And because its Google, with its 17 years of research and experience, you can ask it any kind of question and probably get an answer: Give me the flight time to Paris, or guide me to the nearest Zabars, (theres only one somewhere on Broadway on the Upper West Side in New York, as you may learn by asking the computer), or give me a current price on a 1965 Corvette Stingray for sale in the Miami area, or even, give me the nearest flower shop so when you find me a loved one, I can be prepared.A bigger pictureIf everybody begins to use these technologies (and they will soon, the forecasters agree) what does that mean for entire communities, and how do developers, architects and engineers plan for a future less predictable but approaching more rapidly, it seems, than any before? Weve been thinking about that for 12 years now, said Syd Kitson, whose company, Kitson & Partners, has required that length of time to develop one of the most high-tech towns in the United States, the 17,000-plus acre Babcock Ranch in Charlotte County. This month and next residents are moving into the first of what will eventually be 19,000 homes and 6 million square feet of commercial space, all in a town completely powered by solar energy, itself laid out in a configuration that may someday soon be unnecessary (when every house is equipped with advanced roofs that do the job): a 400acre solar field. You try to future-proof these homes, but you cant future-proof everything, he said. Every public space in the town now has Wi-Fi, and will as much of it as anybody needs to accommodate future technologies. We go up to five gigabits. To us that was critical, he noted. But heres something thats going to really change homes: The advent of autonomous vehicles. There will be no garages. Can you imagine that? No need for that part of the house, Mr. Kitson predicted. So, vehicle design affects road and town design which in turn affects smart home design and living. People arent going to own cars. Instead, theyll rely on autonomous transport powered by electricity that hopefully comes from solar energy and storage is the holy grail of this technology. Babcock, he added, is an ideal place to try out the new technologies; after all, its already testing smart cars. So as this relates to the home, having the technology in place so you can grow with it, but thinking about how people are going to live with autonomous vehicles, you wont think about where to park the car. You wont have to waste that space, so youll have a whole different home design, and a town design. You wont have cars on the road, youll have autonomous vehicles. Parking lots can become parks. Even in the way packages are delivered: There wont be delivery people in vans or trucks, people will receive things in a different way. Were thinking about all that now. They had best think fast, but also with a thought for the past and for the pleasures of big fireplaces and high ceilings and quiet porches. We dream of a day when the house senses your body temperature, realizes you may be getting sick, and calls the doctor, said the architect Jeff Mudgett. But he wonders and worries about it about what convenience really offers, what people may really want, and what they can get in 25 or 30 years. Houses are fundamentally a cave with a rock in front of it. I think Roger Waters of (the rock n roll group) Pink Floyd hit it right: Were entertaining ourselves to death. A lot of the technology is fetishistic, a lot of it is entertainment. There are some basic fundamental things being done, though, that arent as exciting. But they may change everything, in ways most techies arent anticipating. In this regard, Mr. Kitson and Mr. Mudgett may agree. I think the most important advance in houses will be getting off the grid we wont need the world-wide grid, thats old fashioned, predicted Mr. Mudgett. As science gets better at creating good passive design, more efficient solar and really really good batteries, at some point homes and (small communities) are going to become more independent. And that will reduce our energy footprint. Its sustainable. If we cant do that, we arent going to be building any more homes, someday. And when it comes to the home itself one home moving parts will become common future attributes of smart homes in ways weve rarely considered except in Jetson-style fantasy. And paradoxically so will traditional design. The sentimental notion of what a comfortable home is these Rockwellian dining rooms and fireplaces is sometimes at odd with the technology. Living in a home is about where you grew up, how you want to present yourself to your neighbors, what you want to show your children. And moving parts are likely to become much more prominently a part of the moving and changing vision of good living, traditional features and all. If Im living in Los Angeles, Ill want to press a button and open my roof, sometimes. The technology allows it, and I can impress my neighbors. If hes living near the Grand Canyon or on the edge of the Everglades, he may want to move walls or windows to capture different lights and different views in different seasons. Architects have been terrified for years of moving parts, he admits. Something could go wrong and large parts are heavy and hard to move. But thats changing. Technology will easily allow us to move walls or change things. As of now, it can be done only if youre very wealthy. But air conditioning was once like that, too, in Florida. Too big, too cumbersome, too inefficient and too expensive for the average man and woman to afford. But that changed one day abou t 1959 or when it became available and affordable to retirees, and people who worked for living wages, and young families. I had an architecture professor at the University of Florida who was disdainful of the vernacular architecture of Florida: The real vernacular architecture, he claimed, is a window-mounted air conditioner, Mr. Mudgett recalled. It changed the state; it changed the country; it changed everything. And now the new technologies may change everything again. Not may or might, said Mr. Kitson. Will.

But now Torres believes he has a grand-slam defense: Floridas Stand Your Ground self-defense law. Defense lawyer Eduardo Pereira told the Herald the child was the initial aggressor who had participated in various violent altercations against other children, and Torres had acted reasonably in trying to prevent harm to others. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Oscar Rodriguez-Fonts will consider the claim in an upcoming hearing. Family valuesMazen Dayem, 36, of Staten Island, N.Y., obtained a restraining order against his father-in-law, Yunes Doleh, 62, in September after Doleh repeatedly tormented him by waving his hairpiece at Dayem, provoking Dayems greatest phobia the Tasmanian Devil of Loony Tunes fame. Not easily detered, Doleh was arrested on Nov. 5 for violating the order after he removed his wig (and) made hand gestures at a funeral the two attended, Dayem explained to the New York Post. Its just a very large fear of mine, his damn wig ... I have nightmares. Court papers say Doleh proceeded to grimace, snarl, gurn and gesticulate. He was charged with criminal mischief in Staten Island County court, and then sued his son-in-law for defamation after photos from the arrest appeared on social media.Least-competent criminalsTeller County (Colorado) Sheriff Jason Mikesell listed his SUV for sale on Craigslist in November, and he was a little perplexed when he received a response from Shawn Langley, 39, of Vail, offering to trade the SUV for four pounds of marijuana. Langley even provided photos of his black market booty and boasted about its quality, reported The Colorado Springs Gazette. I saw that text, and I started giggling, Mikesell said. Detectives set up a meeting and arrested both Langley and Jane Cravens, 41, after finding the promised four pounds of marijuana in their car. Sheriff Mikesell has removed his SUV from Craigslist.

It took police almost a month to track him to a home in Stockton, where they surrounded the dwelling and apprehended him without incident which might not be so remarkable were it not for the distinctive, whole-face tattoo Hughes sports, which makes his face look like a human skull. He was booked into the San Joaquin County Jail. Good deed, punishedMalcolm Whitfield of Rochester, N.Y., was only trying to help when he ordered a Lyft car to deliver a drunk woman home from a bar in November. But when the woman vomited in the car, Whitfield was hit with a $150 fine to cover the damage. For a second, I was like, Never do anything nice again! Whitfield told 13WHAM. Lyfts terms and conditions include damage fees, which most people dont see in the fine print. Update: Lyft later refunded Whitfields fine and added $100 to his Lyft account for future rides. Mr. Whitfield absolutely did the right thing by helping someone get home safely, said Scott Coriell, a Lyft spokesperson.Oh, deerIt was just another early December day at the Horsetooth Store, Gas and RV Park outside Fort Collins, Colo., as employee Lori Jones conducted inventory and restocked shelves. Suddenly, she looked up to see Mama, a doe deer, inside the store, looking at the sunglasses. Then she looked at the ice cream and over at the chips, Jones told CBS Denver. I kind of did a double take. When shooing the deer away didnt work, she broke out a peanut bar and lured the doe into a nearby field. Jones then returned to work, but soon looked up to find Mama was back, this time with her three fawns in tow. It took another peanut bar to draw the family away from the store, and Jones said she has learned her lesson. You should never feed the deer because theyre going to keep coming back.

Offer Expires 1/11/18 BEHIND THE WHEELHyundais new Accent is a baby ElantraThere is something alluring about a solid car for OK money. Practicality doesnt get a sexy tagline in commercials, or run the pace car at the Indy 500, but there is bliss in not feeling like you paid too much for features you dont want. Thats the appeal of the redesigned Hyundai Accent. The styling is pleasant, but not revolutionary. The lowest-priced trim starts at $15,880, and it doesnt look bargain basement thanks to a sporty front bumper design and good plastics. At the other end of the spectrum, the nearly $20K Limited model looks loaded with plenty of bright trim, alloy wheels and upgraded LED lights at both ends. Inside is where most Hyundais excel. All new Accents come with a backup camera, power locks and air conditioning. These are features that are standard on most cars today, including low-cost competitors like the Chevrolet Sonic and Ford Fiesta. But the Accent also gets power windows, cruise control, Bluetooth and a touchscreen radio even in the base SE trim. The Toyota Yaris iA is the only compact sedan that can match those kinds of stock equipment levels. Upgrade to a Limited, and it adds some better technology goodies like a larger touchscreen, forward collision warning and Blue Link that can connect with wireless devices to remotely start the car (so its nice and cool when its time to drive.) Our test car was a Limited model, and it felt loaded, which is a good thing, because a much larger world of alternatives opens up when approaching $20K. Out on the road, the Accent feels like a solid everyday sedan. Thats giving it good praise. B ecause low er-priced vehicles dont always feel substantial. The Accent weighs in at the middle of its compact sedan competition, and so it doesnt get blown around on the highway like some others can. Plus, its 1.6-liter motors 130 horsepower is one of the highest rated in its class. The new Accent will never be considered a sports car, but people who are shopping around will appreciate how substantial it feels. What may be the most noteworthy feature of the Accent is how close it is to its larger sibling, the Elantra. About eight inches in length and less than five inches in wheelbase separate the two sedans. They have a similar sporty silhouette with a well-creased hood, bubble-top profile, and a short rear deck. Inside, the steering wheel and dash layout share many of the same components. To be fair, the Accent and Elantra have always been close siblings. But with the 2018 redesign, the Accent enters new territory as it is brought up to the impressive standard features level that the Elantra redesign achieved over a year ago. Its not a bad thing when the Elantra and Accent dont have fully distinct identities. These are not sports cars with a fanatical following like the Porsche 911 or Ford Mustang. These are commuter machines that need to be the ideal fit for a diverse crowd, and so maybe a one-two punch is the right approach. Hyundai has spent a lot of time making sure everyone believes each dealership is located at the corner of Low-cost Avenue and Value Boulevard. And this duo allows them to dial in a buyers needs more precisely. A customer who is continuously looking for way to take the price down of an Elantra might be steered to looking at a lower-cost Accent. And someone who is loading up an Accent Limited might be intrigued by the upper-class features (cooled seats, radar cruise control, etc.) in the Elantra. This is proper dealer-level strategy. It doesnt make for the sexiest advertisements. But for consumers, it means a visit to the Hyundai lot can be a much more tailored experience.

Run, dont walk, to the DASH diet for help preventing and treating high blood pressure NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHFor the eighth consecutive year, U.S. News and World Report has ranked the DASH Diet developed by the National Institutes of Health as the best overall diet among nearly 40 it reviewed. The announcement came just as new research suggests that combining DASH, or Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, with a low-sodium diet has the potential to lower blood pressure as well as or better than many anti-hypertension medications. With its focus on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy and lean proteins, DASH tied this year for best overall diet and was ranked No. 1 in the healthy eating and heart disease prevention categories. According to the World Health Organization, hypertension, more commonly referred to as high blood pressure, is the most common chronic condition worldwide. It is a major risk factor for heart disease, affects 1 billion people and accounts for 1 in 8 deaths each year. Researchers funded by NIHs National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute developed DASH to prevent and treat high blood pressure, but the diet also has proven highly effective in lowering blood cholesterol. The consistent high rankings of DASH over the years bode well for the way the diet is received and adopted, not just by health professionals, but also by the public at large, said Janet de Jesus, registered dietitian and program officer at NHLBIs Center for Translation Research and Implementation Science. This is especially gratifying now that new research underscores the significant blood-pressure lowering effects of a reduced intake of sodium in combinaSEE DASH, A19

Previous research has shown that people who follow the DASH diet may be able to reduce their blood pressure by a few points in just two weeks. Over time, their systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) could drop by eight to 14 points, which significantly reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. The positive health effects could be even greater if DASH is combined with a low sodium diet. An NHLBI-funded study of more than 400 adults with prehypertension, or stage 1 high blood pressure, found that the combination of a low-salt diet with DASH substantially lowers systolic blood pressure. Overall, participants who started out with the highest blood pressure achieved the greatest reductions. An interesting aspect of the DASH diet is that the effects are greater in people with hypertension or higher blood pressure at baseline, which is comparable to anti-hypertensive medications, said Dr. Stephen Juraschek, an adjunct assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University and and an instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Juraschek is the studys first author. Our results add to the evidence that dietary interventions can be as effective as, or more effective than, antihypertensive drugs in those at highest risk for high blood pressure, he said. Such interventions should be a routine firstline treatment option for such individuals. DASH is not a fad diet, but a healthy eating plan that supports long-term lifestyle changes. Low in saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol, it emphasizes fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy foods, and includes whole grains, poultry, fish, lean meats, beans and nuts. It is rich in potassium, calcium and magnesium, as well as protein and fiber. However, it calls for a reduction in high fat red meat, sweets and sugary beverages. The DASH diet was one of 38 diets reviewed and scored by the U.S. News and World Reports panel of health experts. To receive top ratings a diet must be relatively easy to follow, nutritious, safe, effective for weight loss and protective against diabetes and heart disease. DASH tips for gradual changeMake these changes over a couple of days or weeks to give yourself a chance to adjust and make them part of your daily routine: Add a serving of vegetables at lunch one day and dinner the next, and add fruit at one meal or as a snack. Increase your use of fat-free and low-fat milk products to three servings a day. Limit lean meats to 6 ounces a day (3 ounces a meal), which is about the size of a deck of cards. If you usually eat large portions of meats, cut them back by half or a third at each meal over a couple of days. Work two or more meatless meals into your diet each week. For snacks and desserts, use raw vegetables or fruits; unsalted rice cakes, nuts or seeds; raisins; graham crackers; fat-free or low-fat frozen yogurt; or popcorn with no salt or butt er added. Use fresh, frozen or low-sodium canned vegetables and fruits. DASHFrom page 18

Boxers, German shepherds and Pembroke Welsh corgis are among more than 100 breeds and mixes that may benefit from two therapies being studied, as well as a diagnostic biomarker test for degenerative myelopathy, a disease of the central nervous system that develops late in life. The condition, which typically affects dogs between 8 and 14 years old, damages the spinal cord, muscles, nerves and brain, causing loss of muscle control, weakness in the hind legs and, eventually, paralysis. Dogs with two copies of a mutation in the gene superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) are at risk for the disease, but not all dogs with the mutation will develop the disease. Early signs include dragging or shuffling the hind legs. At first, owners may suspect the weakness or lameness is caused by an orthopedic condition or simply advancing age, says Dominik Faissler, DVM, assistant professor of neurology at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton, Massachusetts. As the disease progresses, the dog may stumble and fall, have difficulty standing up and lose mobility as the nervous system becomes unable to transmit motor commands between brain and limbs. Gradually, the brain stem becomes affected, causing difficulty swallowing. Paralysis usually occurs in the space of a year. Most dogs are euthanized before they develop difficulty breathing, Dr. Faissler says. Currently, a DNA test developed in 2009 is available to identify the recessive gene mutation that causes the disease, allowing breeders to avoid producing affected dogs, but last years discovery of a diagnostic biomarker can help lead to earlier diagnosis of dogs at risk of developing DM, as its called for short. Its also important for researchers in human medicine who study amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrigs disease. The same mutation that causes DM in dogs also causes ALS in humans. Finding the biomarker involves collecting cerebrospinal fluid from the affected dog. Thats more difficult and expensive than a blood test because it requires anesthesia, but less expensive than magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Because DM mimics other diseases such as intervertebral disc disease and spinal cancer, an MRI is part of the process to rule out those conditions. Even then, the diagnosis is not considered definitive until the dog dies and a necropsy is performed. As the biomarker test becomes more widely available, it may help to provide earlier and more reliable diagnoses. And earlier diagnosis goes hand in paw with the search for effective therapies. One of the therapies being studied involves injecting antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) into the spinal fluid with the goal of suppressing production of the mutant protein SOD1. Researchers hope the molecular therapy will be able to sneak past the blood-brain barrier and silence the messenger RNA, slowing or stopping disease progression. Affected dogs who meet certain criteria may be eligible to participate in the study, conducted at the University of Missouri. A gene-silencing study is also under way at Tufts Cummings School. A gene therapy clinical trial, also at the University of Missouri, injects whats called interference RNA (iRNA) into the spinal fluid to repress production of the SOD1 protein. Dogs in the early stages of the disease may also be eligible to participate in that study. Both University of Missouri studies are randomized and double-blinded. That means neither researchers nor owners know which dogs receive the treatment and which receive a placebo. The studys design gives dogs a 67 percent chance of receiving the treatment, according to the universitys website. The treatments have been tested for safety, but their effectiveness isnt yet known. The same therapeutic approach is being studied in humans with SOD1associated ALS. Success in either dogs or humans will likely benefit both. Boxers are among the breeds susceptible to degenerative myelopathy.

Brown, MD, FACSFounder & Medical DirectorLifetime Eye Care for the Entire Family12 CONVENIENT LOCATIONSTired of breakups and makeups? Sever that bond and move onWhen it comes to breakups, a wise old friend of mine (also my hairdresser back in the day) used to ask the question, Which would hurt less? Chopping your arm off at the elbow with an ax? Or very slowly sa wing it off with a plastic butter knife? Ive repeatedly related this nugget of hair salon wisdom to several girlfriends who were stuck in a rut especially when starting a brand-new year. One of them actually listened. After an onagain, off-again long-distance, one-sided (on her part) relationship, a good friend finally stopped the insanity and officially called it quits with the noncommittal man who had been holding her heart hostage for years. Im happy to report that within a few months, she found a wonderful new partner and is currently shopping for a wedding gown for her April nuptials. Trust me, I know what its like to break up, and then make up, and break up again, and continue the cycle for far too long. Lately, I seem to have a myriad of friends caught in this time-wasting web. Its a new year and that means new beginnings. And you cant start something new and shiny if youre clinging to something old and rusty (plus, rust causes tetanus). Thirteen years ago, before I met my husband, I was technically single and by single, I mean that even though my ex-boyfriend and I had broken up a number of times over a four-year period for a plethora of really good reasons (lets just say that if he told you the sky was blue, youd be smart to look up and make sure), we would still occasionally meet for lunch or drinks, or chat on the phone. He was perfectly happy to have me as friend while he enjoyed dating half of Southwest Florida. It took me a ridiculously long time to realize that you cant be friends with someone youre still hopelessly in love with. Id go out to singles bars, did speeddating and (these were the days before Facebook, Bumble, Tinder and texting). I told myself I was open to a new, fresh, happy relationship but my heart was stuck in the spin cycle of the same broken, old, rusty washing machine it had been in for almost five years. Potential new loves can tell when youre emotionally unavailable, and if theyre smart, they wont hang around for very long. As my friend Michael, the hairdressing sage, had told me, I was sawing my arm off with a butter knife and not only did it hurt, it was timeconsuming. When I turned 40, I finally decided enough was enough. I cut ties with old (un)faithful and within three months, I was in a committed relationship with my future husband. I realize that setting oneself free of someone toxic is a bit more complicated in 2018 than it was in the early 2000s, but my friend who is now engaged followed the advice I gave her: Delete his number from your phone, block his calls, and delete and block him from all social media. I know it sounds harsh, but its an ax, not a butt er knife. People tell me that you can be friends with an ex. I believe you can. Im friends with several, but thats because Im not in love with any of them anymore. And sometimes that takes years of no contact and finally moving on with someone new. So, in 2018, sharpen your ax and get ready for love. stephanieDAVIS

A24 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGBefore you buy AT&T, consider tough market, DOJ scrutinyThe recent Christmas holidays made me reminisce about the first real job I had, working at AT&T in its legal back office during my high school holiday and summer breaks. Although the job was as boring as can be (I sometimes spent an entire eight-hour day photocopying pages of a legal briefing and the next hand stamping reference numbers on the bottom of discovery documents), I made some amazing friends and learned numerous lifelong lessons. Obviously today the company is very different than the one I started working for in 1991 but it is still one of the largest telecommunication firms in the world. Is it a good stock to own in 2018? Ask anyone who currently owns AT&T why they own it and I will guarantee you will get the same two-word response 99.9 percent of the time the dividend. In todays low interest rate environment, investors are searching for a security that is stable yet produces a decent return. For many, AT&Ts 5.3 percent dividend fits that bill. For decades, the telecommunications company has steadily been increasing its dividend to investors, which is why the company enjoys almost a cult-like following among income investors. But beyond the dividend, things are not looking that rosy, either for investors or the company. First, the company is constantly battling competitors in an ultra-competitive landscape. On the wireless front, it faces firms like Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. With consumers demanding faster service and more data to do things like stream movies and play video games, these companies are forced to invest in costly equipment and service upgrades which cut into margins. AT&T also competes against firms like Comcast and Dish in providing TV service to its customers. Here the company not only has to often price match these other companies but also deal with cord cutters who are electing to subscribe to services like Netflix or Hulu rather than cable or satellite companies. Second, AT&T is facing a lawsuit from the U.S. Department of Justice to block its proposed purchase of Time Warner. Many analysts believe that AT&T will either have to divest many of Time Warners key assets to make the deal palatable to regulators which will lessen the benefit of the deal or drop the deal altogether. The primary reason AT&T is buying Time Warner is for the media companys huge library of content. If it had to sell of a large chunk of that, it would be negative for the company. But even if the Time Warner deal goes through as planned, analysts have started to worry about AT&Ts increasing debt load. It recently paid $48.5 billion for DirecTV and has offered $85 billion for Time Warner. After this purchase, AT&T is expected to carry debt north of $180 billion. While most analysts still believe that AT&T can easily carry this liability on its balance sheet today, given its strong free cash flows, continued stagnant revenue growth could put pressure on the company in the future. These negatives have put pressure on AT&Ts stock price, even with its growing dividend. While stocks in general had a very positive 2017, the companys stock fell by 12 percent over the last 12 months. Going forward, I would want to wait until AT&Ts battle with the DOJ over Time Warner gets resolved and it can show where income growth will come from, despite the lower cost of the stock. To me, buying a company with a juicy dividend but poor fundamentals is like dating someone who looks good but has a bad personality. He might make you happy in the short run, but in the long run you will end up with nothing but headaches.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. The Right Time to PanicThe S&P 500, a leading stock market index of 500 of Americas biggest companies, plunged below 700 in early 2009 during a major financial crisis. It ended the year with a 26 percent gain, though. There have been five more years with double-digit gains since then, and it looks like 2017 will be a sixth, with the S&P 500 recently near 2,700. That has some worrying that the stock market is due to fall. The stock market is likely to retreat sharply one of these days. We just dont know when. It might be tomorrow, or it might be in several years. Savvy investors expect occasional drops, and they dont panic and sell during downturns. Its often best to just wait, or even to buy, when the market heads south. Sometimes it does make sense to panic, though such as: When you dont know why you own what you own. If you cant recall why you bought shares of Typewriterland Inc. (Ticker: QWERTY), youll have trouble determining when to sell. If QWERTY shares plunge, it might be due to a fleeting problem, in which case you should hang on, or it might be due to some serious trouble. Be familiar with your holdings so you can tell the difference. When you have a short time horizon. If youre invested in stocks for just a few months, then go ahead and hyperventilate if the market tanks. Anything can happen in the short term. Even stock in wonderful companies can temporarily plunge. Any money you expect to need within the next five (if not 10) years should be out of stocks and perhaps in CDs or money market funds. Dont panic just because the market drops, say, 100 points. Remember that its the percentage of the market drop that counts, not the points. A 100-point drop was a big deal when the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 1,000. But when its around 25,000, 100 points is less than 1 percent. Keep learning about investing at fool. com and elsewhere. The more you know, the less youll panic. Patience PaysSelling Netflix back in 2010 is definitely the costliest mistake Ive made, even though it was a four-bagger at the time, quadrupling the value of my investment. I sold after holding it for about three years. I thought I did the right thing after I saw it plummet, but then it shot straight back up. I could be sitting on about a 25-bagger, if Id just held on. Lesson learned have patience. Mark M., Radford, VirginiaThe Fool Responds: It may sound trite, but patience really is powerful in investing. Netflixs history has been a bit volatile. In 2011 the company announced plans to split its DVD-by-mail business from its video streaming business, naming the DVD business Qwikster. The idea was met with ridicule and scorn and was retracted not long after. The episode helped push Netflixs stock down some 75 percent in just about three months. Certainly, anyone who sold before that would be relieved.Its important to keep the big picture in mind, though. At the time, did it seem that Netflix was doomed? Its revenue topped $2 billion annually and it was still growing. The stock recovered and kept growing, too.Today, bears worry about competition from Amazon Prime and others, including Disneys recent deal to buy 21st Century Foxs movie and TV assets, but bulls point to Netflixs aggressive investments in original content as well as its global growth. Robotic GrowthOne of the staples of sci-fi stories is robots. A key company helping make everyday robotics a reality, and managing to put up some substantial growth numbers while it does so, is iRobot (Nasdaq: IRBT). Its recent third-quarter results, for example, featured 22 percent year-overyear revenue growth. iRobot is the current market leader in the emerging consumer robot industry, with more than 20 million robots sold worldwide. (The company sells its products in the U.S., Japan, and Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).)Though iRobot offers a variety of robots that do everything from clean your g utters and pool to mop your floor, the bulk of its revenue still comes from its Roomba robotic vacuums. In a recent interview with MIT Technology Review, iRobot co-founder and CEO Colin Angle noted that his company has talked about lawn mowing, laundry folding, loading and emptying dishwashers, and bathroom cleaning as things of interest to us, adding that robots will eventually handle all of this routine maintenance.Market penetration of consumer vacuum robots is growing, but its still quite low in the U.S. and is even lower abroad. This leaves iRobot plenty of room to grow and generate big returns for shareholders. With its long history of growth, profitability and innovation, iRobot is a must-consider growth stock. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended iRobot.) I trace my roots back to 1902, when a Golden Rule store was opened in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Some 12 years later, I launched the private-label Marathon Hats brand, followed later by Gaymode hosiery, Silver Moon lingerie, Big Mac work clothes and Towncraft menswear. I went public a week before the stock market crash in 1929. In 1963 I launched my first catalog. Today Im a major apparel and home furnishings retailer, with about 875 stores nationwide. I have more than 2,500 suppliers, employ more than 100,000 people and rake in more than $12 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: JC Penney Co.) The Nasdaq vs. the NYSEQI read that PepsiCo left the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and is now listed and trading on the Nasdaq stock market index. Why would a company do that? R.L., Lake City, FloridaAIt makes little difference to us investors buying and selling shares of NYSE and Nasdaq companies, but there can be meaningful differences for the companies. Two common considerations are prestige and cost. The NYSE dates back to 1792 and is more prestigious. The Nasdaq was born in 1971 as a computerized trading system, while the NYSE, long relying on people to execute its trading, now uses both humans and electronics. It generally costs more to be listed on the NYSE, and thats where youll find many old, established blue chip companies, such as Coca-Cola, Disney and Boeing. The Nasdaq is home to many tech-heavy and fastergrowing businesses, including large ones such as, Microsoft, Facebook and Apple. Each market has its own rules and requirements for listed companies, with Nasdaq being less demanding. Most companies debuting on the market via an initial public offering (IPO) do so on the Nasdaq. ***QLast year I noticed that two companies in the same industry had similar stock prices. One has seen its price rise, while the other has fallen. Can you explain why? S.T., Miamisburg, OhioAThe similar prices were pretty much a coincidence.

The unemployment rate reflects that businesses are growing and hiring Floridians, said Tiffany Vause, a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. Additionally, as Florida businesses expand, they will still be able to find Floridians to employ as our workforce continues to grow. For some, hiring seasonal foreign workers through the federal governments H-2B program or administering behavioral tests for new hires has helped with staffing challenges. Businesses said they are also responding by offering competitive pay rates, flexible scheduling and employeefriendly work environments. A large percentage of our associates are part time, wrote Brian S. West, a spokesperson for Publix Super Markets, in an email. Many of those are going to school or need a flexible schedule for other reasons, so our numbers are always fluctuating. However, were very proud that in our more than 87 years in business, weve never had a layoff. Finding employees with a strong work ethic that interact well with others, whether at the checkout line or in the deli department, is a challenge in any market and for the chains stores across Florida, he adds. We can teach you the grocery business, but finding someone with a servants heart and great soft skills are the foundation for giving premiere customer service; something our customers expect of Publix associates, Mr. West wrote. A growing economy creates hiring challenges. Were fortunate that many of the great ones looking for jobs want to work at Publix. Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, whose staff swells to around 400 during peak season, roughly Thanksgiving to April, is nearly always looking for good help, said general manager Jason Parsons. The biggest challenge in finding it? Its really a lack of workers, he said. Its not just in any particular department. We have challenges finding good people in general, so when we do find them, you know, we keep them. Employee turnover is a fact of life for many seasonal businesses, but spending extra time creating a schedule that factors in priorities such as school and family helps mitigate that. Money definitely is important, Mr. Parsons said. (And) that they enjoy their job, feel comfortable with their work, but also have some kind of flexibility with their schedule whether for their school or their family, and our retention is pretty good. This year for its busiest months, the Hotel & Golf Club found an additional 35 people who work in housekeeping, the kitchen and other food and beverage jobs from Jamaica and Mexico using the federal governments H-2B labor program, which allows businesses to hire temporary foreign workers. Thats really, really helped us this year, really helped us, Mr. Parsons said over the phone the Friday before New Years Eve, after the clubs restaurant had been slammed, serving more than 800 people for lunch. Whatever their position, finding employees who work well with others and with guests, particularly on such busy days when tensions can run high, is important. If you can get someone in general thats a positive person and looks to provide that in terms of their service its a good thing for us so we really focus on attitude, he said. At Park Avenue BBQ & Grille, a 30-year-old chain of eight family sitdown restaurants from Boynton Beach to Port St. Lucie, employees know they will always have Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter off, said owner and founder Dean Lavallee. Its latest location opened in December 2017 at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. Offering those major holidays off is one of the ways hes able to keep new hires to a minimum and retain many long-term workers year after year, even in an employees market. Its really a blessing that we have lots of long-term employees, returning employees and we even have generational employees, he said. A behavioral assessment for new employees by The Predictive Index also helps match jobs such as a manager or a server with people whose personalities make them a good fit. The assessment gauges an employees need to be in charge, preference for being around other people in a social setting or not, sense of urgency, and attention to detail or a more big-picture focus. Its not a value judgment, its just who we are, Mr. Lavallee said. At Fishermens Village, a marina, resort and outdoor mall in Punta Gorda with many local retail shops and restaurants, the need for help with about six seasonal positions such as custodians or cart drivers is often filled by the areas senior seasonal residents, said general manager Patti Allen. Fishermens Village is a great place to work and they tend to come back year after year, Ms. Allen said. Whats nice about it is you get to look at the water all day and visit with people who are on vacation. Mom-and-pop shops at Fishville typically look to hire an extra pair of hands or two from about Thanksgiving to Easter, said Fred and Robin Kaske, owners of Laff Out Loud. Posting jobs online, signs on the front door, and word of mouth from current employees help fill those positions. The shop, which since 2000 has offered a fun and whimsical assortment of games, puzzles and pop culture items, typically increases the staff from two employees to three. And those sales personnel pick up some extra hours since the mall stays open an extra two hours, until 8 p.m., from Nov. 24 through April. Some of the seasonal employees over the years have been retirees. People that retire dont always enjoy retirement, so its an opportunity for them to make friends and for them to make a few extra dollars, Mr. Kaske said. WANTEDFrom page 23

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYRonto now accepting reservations for new Eleven Eleven Central communityThe Ronto Group announced it is accepting reservations for Phase I residences at Eleven Eleven Central, a new walkable/ bikeable, access-controlled community to be built by Ronto on Central Avenue between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. The project will be built in three phases and include a total of 210 residences in three cleanlined four-story over parking buildings at completion. The 62-unit Phase I offering features five light-filled twobedroom, two-bedroom plus den, and three-bedroom open-concept floor plans ranging from 1,407 to 2,297 square feet of total living space, including covered outdoor balconies. Pre-construction pricing starts in the low-$500s. Eleven Eleven Central offers a convenient, maintenance-free, walkable/ bikeable downtown lifestyle and a comprehensive array of amenities typically reserved for residents of master planned communities. With Fifth Avenue South just five blocks away, Eleven Eleven Central residents will enjoy immediate access to downtown Naples shopping, dining, and entertainment attractions, as well as the beach that is just three-quarters of a mile away via the sidewalks and bike lanes on Central Avenue. A community beach shuttle is planned. Eleven Eleven Centrals location also provides ready access to Baker Park and the Gordon River Pedestrian Bridge and Boardwalk being developed by the City of Naples on the east side of Goodlette-Frank Road to connect Central Avenue and downtown Naples to the Gordon River Greenway along a pedestrian and bicycle friendly route. With its downtown location and array of amenities, Eleven Eleven Central will serve as a master planned oasis in the heart of Naples. Homebuyers will no longer need to choose between living in fully amenitized gated communities removed from the downtown district or living in a less amenity rich environment downtown. Eleven Eleven Central provides both a full complement of amenities and a downtown location. Scheduled for completion in Phase I, the communitys approximately 60,000 square feet courtyard amenity deck will feature a 3,500 square feet resort-style pool with two 90-foot lap lanes, chaise lounges and poolside tables, two spas, outdoor showers, poolside cabanas, grills, a cabana bar and grilling area with large screen televisions, multiple fire pits with built-in seating, a hammock lawn, a life-sized outdoor chess set, a yoga stretching area, and two bocce ball courts. The outdoor amenities will be expanded during Phase II to include a 20,400-square foot Courtyard Park with park benches, a putting green, a yoga lawn, and fenced dog runs. Inside, Eleven Eleven Central will invite residents to enjoy a nearly 4,000-square foot clubroom with a bar, billiards tables, card tables, large screen televisions, and a catering kitchen adjacent to an outdoor grill and fire pit. A fitness center also measuring nearly 4,000-square feet will include a stretching and functional movement area, exercise equipment, massage rooms, and rest rooms. Six community guest suites will be provided for visiting friends and family members. Resident storage and bike storage areas will be included. Our Naples Square project at 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road offers a walkable/bikeable lifestyle that has transformed the way people live in downtown Naples, said Ronto Group president Anthony Solomon. Eleven Eleven Central will continue that transformation while contributing to the growth of professional, dining, and retail enterprises on the east side of Tamiami Trail. Our intention was to provide the things that make Naples so popular sun, fun, and luxury. The location will put residents right in the middle of downtowns action and excitement. The beach, galleries, restaurants, and shopping are all within easy walking distance. At the same time, our residents will enjoy all the sun, fun, and luxury they want right at home. Frankly, there is no other community or residential building in Old Naples that offers the amenities that are included in the Eleven Eleven Central design. Homebuyers no longer need to choose between a downtown location or a fully amenitized master planned community lifestyle. Now they can have both. The courtyard amenity deck and Courtyard Park will be the heart of the community. Theres nothing else like it in all of Naples. Every Eleven Eleven Central floor plan includes an outdoor balcony with views of the amenity courtyard or the surrounding neighborhood. Each residence will feature luxurious standard finishes or optional finishes that will allow each resident to finish their home to suit their individual preferences. Standard finishes in the openconcept living areas include 10-foot ceilings, smooth walls with finish paint and 8-inch clean-lined baseboards, polished chrome lever style door hardware, porcelain tile flooring, 8-foot two-panel solid core interior doors, 8-foot sliding glass doors and exterior doors, and Whirlpool front load electric washers and dryers. Standard features in the open kitchen designs showcase large working islands, stainless steel undermount sinks, granite or quartz countertops with a four-inch backsplash, North American Cabinets, and a Whirlpool stainless steel appliance package, including a slide in range with a convection oven and a French door counter depth refrigerator. Standard features in the owners bath include under-mount sinks, a 60 by 32-inch tub, framed glass shower doors, 36-inch height vanities, comfort height elongated toilets, and chrome fixtures. The Ronto Group is also developing the Naples Square community in downtown Naples; the Seaglass highrise tower at Bonita Bay; the TwinEagles gated golf course community in North Naples; and Orange Blossom Naples, a community located at 1948 Oil Well Road that offers a fully amenitized affordable resort lifestyle. The Eleven Eleven Central Sales Gallery located at 100 Goodlette-Frank Road South in downtown Naples is open daily.

B16 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 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 Top: The model will showcase water views with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that open to outdoor gathering areas.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYClosings begin on Tower 1 at Kalea BayRooftop amenities now in placeThe construction on Tower 1 at Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, has been completed and closings have begun to take place. According to Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay, 100 of the towers 120 residences are scheduled to be closed by the end of January. The transformation of this property over the past few months has been phenomenal, Lodge said. And the reception among both residents and prospects reflects that. From the clubhouse and all its amenities to Tower 1 itself, Kalea Bay is truly stunning. The completion of the tower and the commencement of closings comes just weeks after the buildings rooftop amenities were completed, including the rooftop pool, which is surrounded by comfortable chaise lounges, dining tables and chairs, and plush conversation areas, the sky lounge, and an openair fitness center with cantilevered roof that opens and closes. 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 Lodge. From up 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. She added, We had very high expectations for our sky amenities and I must admit that those expectations have been exceeded on every level. Only six units remain in Tower 1. Residences in Tower 2, which was released for sale in the summer of 2017, are also available. The 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 3,919 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 Tower 1, the construction of Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot club amenity center has also been completed. Kalea Bays main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adultsonly pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-theart fitness center. All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, 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. 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, two-tenths of a mile.

B24 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMy first visit to the neighborhoods at MediterraAs I shared with you last week, Ive been searching for a new home set in a community that will provide a setting where I can live life the way that I choose to live it. After looking for a while, a friend suggested I check out London Bay Homes Mediterra community on Livingston Parkway in North Naples. Well, I did visit Mediterra. Its a beautiful place with every amenity on my checklist, including a private, residentsonly, 10,000 square-foot beach club on Little Hickory Island with indoor and al fresco dining. After my first visit, I told my Sales Executive, Lisa, that I would be back to look at Mediterras home sites and model home choices. I must tell you, theres a lot to look at over 60 sites, models, and fully furnished movein ready homes. That brought a smile to my face. No other community I had visited offered so many choices! Lisa introduced me to Mediterras newest neighborhoods, all of which are being developed and built by London Bay Homes. We started in the Caminetto neighborhood, the newest of the Lake District neighborhoods developed by London Bay. As we drove through Caminetto, I was struck by the way it is so peacefully integrated with its natural surroundings. Its as if life in Caminetto celebrates the neighborhoods exquisite views of glistening sapphire fountained lakes and nature preserves along with lovely short walks to the Parterre Garden, a picturesque sanctuary of formal gardens, sitting areas, and a large reflecting pond with waterspouts. Its a place with a very intimate feeling that felt comfortable to me. After taking it in, I asked Lisa about the price point. It turned out that luxurious singlefamily villa homes are priced from the high $1-millions to the upper $2-millions. If you ask me, thats a great value given what Mediterra offers and the caliber of London Bays architectural and interior designs. Just so you know, buildable home sites and two completed furnished model homes are available within Caminetto. A third model is planned. The Cabreo neighborhood was next on our tour. I found out Cabreos maintenance-free single-family luxury villas range from 2,800 to 3,200 square feet under air and are priced from $1 million. More importantly to me, the neighborhood showcases a rustic Mediterranean style with fine appointments, including grand entrances, ornate stone details, barrel tile roofs, and cobblestyle brick paved driveways. The architectural designs feature open, flowing floor plans, interior and exterior arches, tall ceilings, and rich finishes. The streetscape is single-loaded and the home sites measure 65 to 70 feet by approximately 130 feet with golf course, lake, and nature preserve views. Equally impressive, Cabreo is situated adjacent to Mediterras 1.2 miles of landscaped walking trails and within comfortable walking distance of the communitys gardens. Ill be visiting the three completed furnished models that are available in Cabreo. Lisa told me a fourth model is planned. When we visited London Bays Lucarno neighborhood, I was struck by the double-loaded, one-way cobblestone streets, rich terra cotta and rustic stone appointments, sparkling lakes, glorious gardens, and majestic fountains that create a distinctive European feeling. So, was this another one of Mediterras long-established Mediterranean neighborhoods? Not at all. From what I saw, Lucarnos custom villa homes are a triumph of space and design and offer an uncommon level of versatility. Outdoor balconies, private patios, covered loggias, and courtyards all flow seamlessly into classic contemporary indoor spaces waiting to be experienced. The interiors reflect London Bays updated sense of elegance that is confident enough to allow comfort and livability to move to the forefront rather than keeping them in the background and subservient to the heaviness of traditional Mediterranean styles. For me, London Bays approach to maintenance-free one and two-story single-family villa design blends the splendor of Naples with the intimacy of the Old World. I was intrigued and asked Lisa to tell me more about it. She told me Lucarno will showcase 71 lakeside villa homes ranging from 2,900 to over 4,000 square feet priced from $1.5 million. Buildable home sites and two completed furnished models are available. After Lucarno, Lisa and I visited Mediterras Cortile neighborhood. For me, it captures the lan of an idyllic Mediterranean coastal village while offering close proximity to every amenity within the community. Even so, it exudes the feeling of being a world apart. Its a neighborhood that will include eighteen 4,200 to 7,000+ estate residences and twenty-eight 3,100 to 6,200 square feet villa homes when its finished. Lisa assured me that estate and villa home sites with golf course, lake or preserve views and two completed furnished models are available in Cortile and that two additional models are under construction. Yea for me! Plenty of choices! From what Lisa showed me during our first home tour, London Bay has set a new standard for sophisticated design and luxurious living in Cortile. Spacious, unrestrained floor plans offer extensive architectural detailing, unique accents, rich finishes, luxurious options that come standard, tumbled stone drives, grand entries, multiple courtyards, and secluded patios. Estate home sites in Cortile are priced from $875,000 to $1.35 million and accommodate residences 4,200 to more than 7,000 square feet. Wondering what the models in each neighborhood are like? Stay tuned Ill let you know what I find out! 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 Top: London Bay Homes furnished Capriano model in Lucarno at Mediterra reflects the contemporary designs the luxury homebuilder is introducing within the community.

Youve dreamed and planned for owning a second home. Imagine enjoying vacations whenever you want, entertaining family and friends, and creating a home away from home. There are many good reasons for owning a second home. Before you take that step, there are some considerations for your careful planning. First, many second home/vacation home owners take the steps to improve family time and take a break from their hectic daily schedules. Booking reservations and the overall cost for vacation time can mount quickly. Often times, a vacation home purchase simplifies the vacation process, while offering an opportunity to build a legacy for a lifetime. A second home creates a gathering place where new traditions are born. And, as Mark Patterson notes on the U.S. News & World Report website, that family vacation home may eventually become your family legacy. Buying that second home in a location where you desire to retire provides wonderful vacation opportunities and allows you to establish community ties that make for a smooth transition down the road. A trial run if you will, with the opportunity to build friendships and immerse yourself in local activities. What better way to determine if this is the place to spend your retirement years? Though you may not want to rent your vacation home when youre away, financial benefits may still be available. Modest appreciation over the years, along with some tax benefits, make the option even more appealing. Lastly, second homes, like relationships, need TLC. When considering your second home purchase, make sure you know your options for maintaining your home, but remember your friends and family for that emotional ROI. Making Memories...Priceless.

Opening night Wednesday, Jan. 17, includes a preshow red carpet reception at 6:30 p.m. with live entertainment tastings from Riptide Brewery and Sage Catering and specialty teas from the Spice & Tea Exchange. Whether the relationship between a father and daughter is nonexistent or reminiscent of Atticus Finch and Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird, that relationship will prove to be one of the most profound of both of their lives. Charles Ives Take Me Home eloquently guides us through the lives of concert violinist John Starr (Mark Vanagas) and his equally gifted athlete daughter Laura (JamieLynn Bucci). Throughout their lives, Johns love of music and Lauras passion for basketball are at odds, but thankfully they have the spirit of modernist composer Charles Ives (Robert Ball) to play referee. The show is directed by Jessica Walck, TNP associate artistic director. Its impossible to experience this beautiful story without being touched in some way, she says. Having a father is something universal to all of us, and yet we have so few opportunities through the arts to reflect on how truly life-changing that relationship is.

Were excited to announce our ofce is now open for business. MARCO ISLAND LOCATION950 N. Collier Blvd. Suite 303, Marco Island, FL 34145 FLORIDA WRITERSTouring America with soaring dancers as your guides Dance Across the USA by Jonathan Givens. Eps Pub. 306 pages. Oversized trade paperback, $39.95.In this beautiful and inspiring book, author-photographer Jonathan Givens celebrates the United States, especially its dedication to maintaining parks, preserves, forests and other natural areas owned collectively by citizens; the separate states plus Washington, D.C., individually; and the art, excitement and pleasure of dance. To accomplish this, he raised money to make an ambitious tour with an ambitious mission. In his modified Nissan van named Buford, he crossed over 22,000 miles of America in 90 days. The trip took him to all 50 states plus Washington, D.C. Developing his route and choosing his settings carefully, he took photographs in 56 locations. While most of these locations are relatively untrammeled by buildings, he couldnt resist urban places like New York Citys Grand Central Terminal. National parks of course play an important role in this hymn to nature, but so do smaller and less known recreational areas: lakes and streams, ocean coasts, mountains, canyons even swamps. Sometimes a setting includes a distinctive structure that grabbed Mr. Givens attention. There are no crowd scenes in this collection, which is just as much focused on the figure in the landscape as it is on the landscape. The figure is a dancing person frozen in time. Most are girls and young women. Perhaps the average age is 14 or 15, though some are much younger and a few considerably older. There are very few male dancers. The statistical outcomes have to do with who showed up for the advertised opportunities to participate. The author-photographer aimed at inclusiveness, but he didnt force it. Each dancer seems embraced by the selected setting. One can sense reverberations between the monumental, imposing stages and the smallish figures, the dancers illuminated in a way that strengthens the image, balances it against the magnitude of the setting. Always at the foreground, the dancers seem to leap out of or above the place, defining it while being defined by it. Indeed, a great number of the photos are of girls in flight not fleeing, but flying. They leap in ballet poses that enhance the sense of their physical fitness, elegance and beauty. But mostly what comes across, in part because many of them were invited to talk about their experience as dancers, is their strong sense of self their distinctive personalities. Indeed, the voices of the dancers show that they themselves are inspired as well as inspirational. This is 13-yearold Sonja Giardina at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park: Before written language, before the spoken word, there existed the language of the body. A raw form of personal expression unhindered by the boundaries of conscious thought. Dance is pure movement and emotion channeled into a manifestation of ones true self. At Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, Ieree Lundin announces: Dance tells the stories I cant get out of my mouth. ... I dance with joy. I dance with fear. I dance to overcome. Looking at the photos of Ms. Lundin, you believe her words. Each chapter contains commentary by the author that is both useful and entertaining. For example, the chapter representing Texas touches Mr. Givens race to get from the Oklahoma session to the Texas location site in time. Since the site is The Alamo, he provides some history of the place and describes the building. Three dancers appear in four gorgeous photographs (one dancer is in two photos, the others in one each). Their poses are striking and strikingly varied. At the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Mr. Givens provides a diary entry of anticipation and disappointment. Bad weather cancels the photo shoot. However, the next morning he is able to take pictures of young Devon Winn before he must move on to Michigan. Readers will be glad he took that opportunity. Of course, Dance Across the USA is a showcase for Mr. Givens skill as an accomplished entertainment photographer. He has specialized in dance, theater and circus and is also a certified stage rigger, a member of Actors Equity and of t p t k s y t GIVENS On the cover of the book is Becky Erickson, photographed in Glacier National Park in Montana.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYWe decided to turn the tables on the musical improv duo, Rebecca Vigil and Evan Kaufman, who perform Your Love, Our Musical, and ask them some questions they typically ask audience members. (The two are comedic partners, not romantically involved.) First, Mr. Kaufman, whos been married for two years. What one word would he use to describe their love? Growing, he says, adding that theyre having a baby in four or five months. A new audience member! he jokes. And if their relationship were a musical, what would it be called? I Love You, Even If You Didnt Listen, he says, explaining that the musical would be from his wifes perspective (and also gaining marital points for his answer.) As for Ms. Vigil, the one word to describe her relationship with her significant other would be Reliable. And if a musical were made about their relationship: Tacos and TV. And if someone were to make a musical about her and Mr. Kaufmans professional relationship, what would it be named? Chemistry! she says. Exclamation point included. Nancy StetsonYour love, my article commitment.) Groundhog Day? (Youre in a rut and every day feels the same.) Beauty and the Beast? (Self-explanatory. But really, why do opposites attract? Cue Joe Jacksons Is She Really Going Out With Him? which opens with a complaint about seeing pretty women out walking with gorillas down my street.) Rebecca Vigil and Evan Kaufman think couples relationships are the perfect fodder for a musical and have created fully improvised shows for hundreds of them based on each couples own unique love story. The two bring their musical improv show, Your L ove, Our Musical to Theatre Conspiracy in Fort Myers for four shows, Jan. 11-14. They describe the show on their website as just like Hamilton if Hamilton was about how you met your boyfriend online dating. Musical improv, they say, is like regular improv, but much more complex. The performers, along with their musical accompanist, have to create songs, complete with rhyming lyrics, on the spot. Its a whole other level of skill, says Ms. Vigil. Youre doing two different skills at the same time, which are both difficult: youre basically composing music and lyrics alongside constructing a narrative and jokes. We go on all cylinders. Improv in general is juggling a bunch of different things, says Mr. Kaufman. Musical improv is adding one little extra piece music. Its a complex little piece, I guess you would say. It breaks down into a couple of different things: finding the melody or tone or genre of the songs, working your way through the song to heighten or continue to explore the theme. And then the third piece is rhyming, which is the thing people find the most impressive, but is always the last thing we think of, when doing a song. Its like a muscle; you exercise it and work it, and eventually it becomes second nature to you. The other factor, he says, is whats called an offer in improv: Someone comes out and says something, which gives you a piece of information, even if its just as simple as Beautiful day today. The other person who is part of our scene is Dan Reitz, our musical director and accompanist, says Mr. Kaufman. He is almost like a third improviser. When he feels the emotions building in a scene, he plays music that matches, or juxtaposes something opposite for comedic effect. Dan basically provides us with an offer for our scene and for our song.Volunteers, not victims The show works like this: the two choose a couple from the audience, people who volunteer to talk about their relationship. Its not like stand-up, Ms. Vigil hastens to say, where if you sit in the front rows, you risk becoming the comics punching bag and the brunt of a joke or two. Some people have trepidations that if they (volunteer,) were going to be mean to them. Our show is celebratory. We like to celebrate these two people (who we base that nights musical on.) Its like were at a party for these people. If multiple people volunteer, theyll ask questions to help decide which couple to pick, such as: what one word describes your love story, or, what one word would you use to describe how you met? Or, what one word describes your love? We had one (show) recently, and the word was political, which is an interesting way to think of a relationship, says Mr. Kaufman. Sometimes people say, drunk. Those are always good. Or Tinder. Sometimes people will say at first sight, which is more than one word. Sometimes we pick people who are the most enthusiastic, or look the most interesting. It always works out. Theyve only had one show where no one volunteered. So, like good improvisers, they immediately switched gears and did a break-up show, creating a musical about one mans break-up. That was real juicy, really dramatic, Ms. Vigil recalls. She was excited because she got to play emotions she typically doesnt get to play. I got to play this horrible, crazy, villainous girl, she says, the antagonist, who was super evil. (The guy was at the show, and the woman hed broken up with obviously wasnt in attendance.)First kisses and pet peevesOnce a couple is chosen, theyre invited on stage where they are interviewed for approximately 25 minutes. They are asked a multitude of questions, about how and where they met, when they had their first kiss and who said, I love you first. They are asked what their pet peeves are about their partner. Its always funny, notes Mr. Kaufman. Most of the time, the women have very specific pet peeves: He says hes listening, but hes not listening. Then the fellow is like: shes perfect, I love her, shes great. Sometimes its as boring as, They dont put the dishes away. Sometimes its weird stuff like, I dont like their feet and they dont wear socks around me. One woman was angry with the fellow because he refused to close doors. Not just the cabinets, but the front door. People have problems with the way people sleep or the way they chew. Its pretty incredible anyones together at all, really. Sometimes people are a little nervous or shy. Sometimes they try to be a comedian and make up answers, but their significant other will call them on it. Theyll say, Rogers just kidding. Hes a school teacher, hes not a race car driver, says Mr. Kaufman. They try to make the interview feel like a talk show. As with any good interview, questions beget more questions, he says. We joke with them, we joke with each other, we go through their whole story, adds Ms. Vigil. We try to make the interview an entertaining portion of the show. The first half is this interview with this real couple, and then the second half is when the magic happens. The piano player starts immediately. Though people think they work with pre-planned templates, they dont. Every single time he plays, weve never heard it, she says. He might include a musical reference. For example, she says, a couple might talk about how they went to a Metallica concert together, and Mr. Reitz will incorporate a Metallica song into the score. Theyve done hundreds of shows, many in New York, where theyre based. Some audience members become repeat attendees, because the show is completely different every time. They interview straight couples, gay couples, old, young, those who have been married just a couple of years and those who have been married for decades. One time they even created a musical for a couple who were on their second date. We kind of created the relationship then, (imagining their future,), says Mr. Kaufman. Some shows stand out. For example, there was a couple who met at a BDSM speed dating event. Another met on a bus in New Zealand and spent their first date at a porta potty convention in Texas. One couple met in Egypt; he was in the military and she was a student. They ended up living in the states together, Mr. Kaufman says. We have every connection conceivable, he says. People who met through friends or in bars. A lot of people meet online now. We had a couple who met online in one of the first chat rooms that ever existed. They were both interested in computers. One lives in England, and the other lived in the U.S. So, we probably met the first couple who internet dated.BeginningsMr. Kaufman and Ms. Vigil are comedic partners, but not romantic ones. We have excellent chemistry, says Mr. Kaufman. Ms. Vigil originally conceived the show with partner David Magidoff, when she lived in Los Angeles. They performed the show, with a different name, in the L.A. region. Then she moved to New York about 2007, 2008, she says and wanted to continue to perform the show. She happened to see Mr. Kaufman in a show in Boston, and thought hed make a great musical improv partner. Its a shame he lives in Boston, she thought. But about a year later, unknown to her, they were cast in the same show in New York. Ms. Vigil was surprised when he walked through the door. She told him her concept, and Your Love, Our Musical was formed four years ago. Theres a lot of interview shows and musical improv shows, but the idea to combine them was what made Your Love kind of special, he says. They were looking forward to performing in Fort Myers. We have four shows down there, says Ms. Vigil. We get to meet four different couples. They know Florida skews older than most states, but that doesnt faze them. Some of their favorite shows have been with couples who have been married for decades. One couple, they remember, was married 50 years; she was a nurse and he was a doctor. Their story spanned so many decades, says Ms. Vigil. You get to play with time and references to everything else (in history and pop culture). Older couples have much more experience; they know each other, they have more stories, so youre able to get a complete picture, which makes for a better musical, says Mr. Kaufman. Young people havent been through as much. If theres one theme that threads through all their shows, its that no matter how difficult a relationship is, or what obstacles they face, people seem to find a way to be together, he says. Sometimes well hear these stories and think: its impossible, how did these people end up together, whether its family issues or distance or the chance of their meeting was so slim, where they met and how they met. Love finds a way. People find each other. Its really wonderful.

At Naples Zoo now through April 15, 2018. PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE NAPLESZOO.ORG 239.262.5409 ARTS COMMENTARYRouge your knees and roll your stockings down and see ChicagoChicago is the perfect musical for these shattered, cynical times. Written in the 1970s but set in the 1920s (and based on a play from that era,), its still, sadly, relevant in 2018. We still are enthralled with the lurid, the sensational. We still create celebrities out of people with questionable morals. We still swallow lies presented as truth. Fortunately, seeing such behavior onstage is much more entertaining than reading about it in our daily headlines. Chicago: The Musical contains, as one character proclaims, murder, greed and corruption, all those things we hold near and dear. It also has shoulder rolls, jazz hands and hip shakes galore, all set to Kander and Ebbs infectious music. The shows subtitle was originally A Musical Vaudeville, and thats exactly how its presented, as a vaudeville show, with actors walking onstage and announcing the next performance. Were offered a tango, a tap dance, a torch song, a rag. Shady lawyer Billy Flynn (Daniel A. Lopez) manages to impersonate Rudy Vallee and Bing Crosby (complete with whistling and brrrr, brrrr, brrr bmmms) within the same song, while surrounded by show girls fluttering oversized feather fans a la Busby Berkeley. In Sophie Tucker style, prison matron Mama Morton (Illy Kirven) gleefully belts out When Youre Good to Mama, chock-full of suggestive innuendoes. Her eyes twinkle as if she cant believe she has the good fortune to perform this song with its lyrics such as lets all stroke together and up yours. (Ive always wondered if Kander and Ebb had a bet going to see how many blue phrases they could include in their songs, because this score includes son of a bitch, holy crap and a lyric that Sophie Tucker will sh*t to see her name get billed below a murderers. Not exactly The Sound of Music.) And Brian Kalinowskis rendition of Mr. Cellophane, about his invisibility in life, is full of pathos worthy of Bert Williams, upon whom his characters based. But the two leads of this musical are Roxie Hart (Sarah Mae Banning) and Velma Kelly (Amy Marie McCleary also the shows choreographer.) Roxie has murdered her boyfriend because he was going to leave her. Velma, whos already incarcerated at Cook County Jail, murdered her husband and sister because they were sleeping together. Velma is the big sensation with the hot-shot lawyer (the above-mentioned Billy Flynn) until Roxie comes on the scene and all the attention falls away. The public can be so fickle! The two women vie for attention and relevance, literally betting their lives that they will be found not guilty and wont hang for their crimes. If declared innocent, the two plan to use their newfound celebrity to launch vaudeville careers. Some productions of Chicago emphasize the age difference between the two giving rise to Velmas fears that she will be cast aside. But she has the upper hand because shes the more knowledgeable and experienced. This interpretation, directed by M. Seth Reines, doesnt focus on that as much. In fact, Ms. Banning, as Roxie, practically runs away with the show. She possesses a certain spark, an appealing boldness onstage. Shes coy. Shes kittenish and manipulative. Ms. McClearys Velma is more sophisticated, with a studied casualness. The actress plays her more understated (though this may be due to the fact that she was ill and even had been replaced by an understudy the night before I saw the show). The set is minimal (a bed, some prison bars, a judges bench). The orchestra, led by musical director Loren Strickland, is onstage, though mostly unseen. The score, which is heavy on horns and woodwinds, lets those instruments strut their stuff. John P. Whites costumes are flashy: spangles, fringe, beads and lots of fishnet stockings. Costumes for the Razzle Dazzle number, where a court of law is presented as a three-ring circus, are especially imaginative. The entire ensemble hustles in this musical, with many actors playing two, three, four different roles. The teenage Stephen Vaught astounds with his falsetto range. And Cole Francum is highly creative and expressive as multiple people on the jury. Its disheartening to see verdicts decided upon by who has created the best story and also to see journalists portrayed like sheep, running to the next sensational story and celebrity du jour. Murderers wrap themselves up in the flag or claim religious redemption, and poof! Theyre instantly forgiven and clutched to Americas collective breast. The lyrics claim, In 50 years or so/Its gonna change, you know, but truthfully, it hasnt. Here we are, almost 100 years from the Roaring Twenties and more than four decades from the original Broadway Chicago, and things are still the same, if not worse. We love the scandalous. The more lurid, the better. Yep, Chicagos got our number. Yet, this is such an entertaining show, with Bob Fosse moves and one of the best scores created. If you stop humming one of the songs after you leave, its only because its been replaced with another of its equally as catchy tunes. Go see Chicago. Like bootleg liquor or hot jazz, you just cant resist it.

SPONSORED BY JANUARY 17-FEBRUARY 11TICKETS: ADULTS $40 SUBSCRIBERS $35 STUDENTS/EDUCATORS $10 CONTRACT BRIDGEFamous hand BY STEVE BECKERIt is said that defense is the most difficult part of the game, but in this deal from the 1997 world team championship, both pairs of defenders made short work of declarers shaky but apparently ice-cold (as the cards lay) four-spade contract. The deal occurred in the quarterfinal match between a U.S. team and China. At both tables, North-South bid aggressively to reach four spades, which with normal defense would yield 10 or 11 tricks. Against a heart or low diamond lead, for example, declarer would win in dummy and lead a spade to the king. With the ace onside and the suit divided 2-2, South would most likely finish with 11 tricks, losing only a spade and the ace of clubs. But both Wests found the most effective lead, a club. Both Easts Xin Li for China and Michael Rosenberg for the U.S. took the opening club trick with the queen and made a quick assessment of their prospects. East had to assume the ace of clubs was a trick, and this, plus the ace of spades, would give the defenders three tricks. The question remaining was where a fourth trick might come from. If West had the ace of diamonds, the defenders had four top tricks, but if declarer had the diamond ace, it would be necessary to score a second trump trick. Accordingly, both defenders, thinking along exactly the same lines, continued with the ace and another club at tricks two and three. South won with dummys king and led a spade from dummy, but both East players rose with the ace of spades and returned a fourth round of clubs, promoting Wests spade queen as the setting trick. Great minds do indeed run in the same channels.

It doesnt go as planned, of course and worse, the film goes in unexpected directions that dont work. A definite disappointment from writer/ director Alexander Payne. Rated R.Darkest Hour 1/2(Gary Oldman, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily James) Gary Oldman is tremendous as Winston Churchill in the first month of his run as prime minister in May 1940. Churchill deals with the escalating war in Europe and turmoil within his own party in this fascinating look at the complexity of power and war. 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. 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.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 o n 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. Wonder Wheel (Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Jim Belushi) Unhappily married to Humpty (Belushi), 1950s Coney Island waitress Ginny (Winslet) has an affair with young lifeguard Mickey (Timberlake). Meanwhile, Mickey has a crush on Humptys daughter from his first marriage, Carolina (Juno Temple). Its the kind of love triangle we know writer/ director Woody Allen can do well, but here he runs out of creativity quickly. Rated PG-13.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. FILM CAPSULES

LATEST FILMSThe PostIs it worth $10? YesSteven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks. A prime awards season release date. Subject matter taken from history that feels notably current. Theres no doubt 20th Century Fox hopes The Post leads to one thing: Oscars. Although nominations are a possibility given the names involved, accolades will stop there. The film is a solid drama that tells a good story and is by no means a disappointment. It starts a bit sluggish but picks up before finishing strong. Its just not going to make you say, Wow. They cant all be Oscar winners, right? Liz Hannah and Josh Singers script begins in Vietnam, 1966. Military analyst Daniel Ellsberg (Matthew Rhys) is there to observe at the behest of Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara (Bruce Greenwood), and things arent going well. He tells McNamara this, and McNamara agrees. Yet when they get off the plane in the U.S., McNamara tells the press things are going better than expected and says hes optimistic about the progress being made. The lies! What the American people did not know at the time, but would soon, is that McNamara commissioned Ellsberg and others to chronicle the United States involvement in Vietnam in what would become known as the Pentagon Papers. The leaking of the top-secret papers in the early 1970s, specifically how and when they were revealed to the public, is the subject of The Post. Streep plays Katherine Graham, owner and publisher of The Washington Post newspaper. Hanks is Ben Bradlee, the papers executive editor. They dont always see eye to eye, and they dont have to they share mutual respect and trust the other always has the papers best interests at heart. The New York Times gets the Pentagon Papers first, publishes an article on them and is quickly court ordered to stop, which is viewed as government censorship. The Washington Post gets the Papers shortly thereafter, and in the midst of trying to sell the company Graham is faced with an unthinkable dilemma: Risk everything and protect freedom of the press by publishing articles based on the Papers, or allow the government to restrict what the newspaper can publish, which is a violation of the First Amendment. Its a heck of a question: Should freedom of the press take precedent over government security? On one hand, the First Amendment allows the press to work for the governed, not the governors, and to hold said governors accountable. On the other hand, sharing top-secret government information is treasonous and punishable by law. Where, how and when the line should be drawn between the two is imminently debatable, and makes up the thoughtful heart of the film. Some might consider The Post liberal propaganda from noted Democrats Spielberg, Streep and Hanks. Theres no denying that it showcases the virtues of a free press, meaning the message to todays audience is that a free press is valuable and the action of a politician proclaiming fake news should not occur. Make of that what you will. Politics aside, though, The Post is a finely acted movie that gets better as it goes and tells a compelling story. t o t l A d dan >> The Post began principal photography in May 2017 and the nal cut was nished in November, which is extremely fast. This couldnt wait, Director Steven Spielberg said. (We had to) tell this story today.Did you know? NAPLES FIRST MEDISPA MANUEL PEA, M.D.Board Certi ed Plastic Surgeon Massage Offering

them or yearning for their admiration, they shape who we are. That is something worth exploring, and Charles Ives Take Me Home does that with exceptional fluency. The story is told with a lightness that will have you laughing at one moment and moved in another, but it is one that will stay with you long after you leave the theater. That could be because stories about father-daughter relationships are sparse, or it could be because of the playwrights gift for storytelling, which in this case includes the music of modernist composer Charles Ives. Mr. Ives passion for music and his ability to perceive what exists between the obvious is the perfect addition to Ms. Dickeys storytelling. Fathers impact their daughters lives as much through words unsaid than those expressed. A lifetime filled with the complex push and pull of John and Lauras relationship is articulated through the cadence of the dribbling of a basketball and the sometimes soothing and other times energizing or agitating sounds of the violin. Mr. Ives compositions, though completely unique and unlike any of his time, are considered some of the most important musical influences in the 20th century. Perhaps that is why Ms. Dickey included his music in her deeply layered play. The music is complex, sometimes confusing but in the end profoundly influential just like the father-daughter relationship explored in Charles Ives Take Me Home. One thing I am certain of is that, if I have done anything good in music it was, first, because of my father, and second, because of my wife, Mr. Ives, who died in 1954, once said. This heartfelt ode to father and daughters is a celebration of joy, family, art, love and what it means to be home. Charles Ives Take Me Home is a play to be experienced by all and, if possible, shared with those who have had a meaningful influence on your life.

soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 in Samuel Barbers Antony and Cleopatra. The film draws on the rich archival resources of the city of New York, Lincoln Center, Metropolitan Opera, various news organizations and private libraries for footage of the planning and construction of the new Met.

Visit a deli location any day between 3-5 pm to learn about available job openings and how to apply. VINOThe other ItalyIf youve ever eaten a pizza or ordered a plate of pasta in an Italian restaurant, chances are you know at least a little bit about Italian wine. Weve all encountered Chianti on the wine list, and probably Brunello and Barolo, too. But even though Italian wines are wildly popular in the U.S., and even though weve all quaffed a carafe of Sangiovese at one time or another, theres so much more to enjoy. Lets go a bit off the well-worn track, away from the Chianti region, away from Piedmont, and see where it takes us. First stop the Marches. This area is just west of the port of Ancona, on Italys east coast about 230 miles south of Venice. The most famous wine of the region is Verdicchio, a white wine with a lemony flavor profile and zippy acidity. An extremely ancient varietal, it is mentioned in Roman writing as far back as 400 A.D. Aside from being a great pairing with seafood, youve probably seen the famous bottle, which is made in the shape of a fish. Fun stuff. Inzolia is a golden white wine grown in Sutera, on the south coast of Sicily. It has honey and melon aromas, and often contains flavors of bitter orange and grapefruit. Many times, its left to oxidize, when it gains a deep golden color and nutlike qualities. Interesting, and worth the search. In Umbria, the wine to look for is Sagrantino di Montefalco. The area borders Tuscany and the Marches, but the main varietal is the Sagrantino grape. Its deeply colored and quite tannic, so its often blended with Merlot, which makes it a bit softer. Since it contains a high proportion of tannin, it ages well, and winemakers often leave it in oak barrels for over two years. Flavors include black cherries, ripe blackberry, and some spice and earth. Since it is so highly structured, it pairs especially well with steak, truffle dishes, venison, hard cheese, and even wild boar. While you might not go out of your way to find wines from Sardinia, you probably should. This island is the second largest in the Mediterranean, off the west coast of Italy, just south of Corsica. Here, they make a killer Grenache, which they call Cannonau. Its a bit rustic, so it pairs well with strongly flavored red sauces and spicy pasta dishes, but the flavors of ripe plums, blackberries, and violets, accented by a slight bitterness on the finish, make it a great food wine. Theres so much more to enjoy with Italian wines, so make it a goal to explore some of the less familiar areas. Meanwhile, here are some other Italian recommendations. Citra Caroso Montepulciano dAbruzzo Riserva 2010 ($22) Its easy to get confused between Montepulciano, which is the name of a grape, and Vino Nobile from the district of Montpulciano. Hint: look for the word Abruzzo. The almost-black color in the glass promises a fullbodied experience, with flavors of raisins, licorice and complex fruit. According to the tasting notes that accompanied this sample, the flavors are elegante e potente, because the whole thing was in Italian. Enjoy this wine with food, and decant it first. WW 92. Frescobaldi Nipozzano Vecchie Viti Chianti Rufina Riserva 2012 ($27) This classic blend from the Rufina area of Tuscany follows the traditional recipe of Sangiovese, with a percentage of Colorino, Malvasia Nera, and Canaiolo. A nose of warm earth, tobacco, and a burst of dark fruit is followed by a medium-bodied mouthfeel, and a mix of dark plum and cherry and soft tannins. This is a very typical true to type Chianti. As a Riserva, it was aged for 24 months in oak and an additional three months in the bottle before release. WW 88. Tenuta Valleselle Aureum Acinum Amarone della Valpolicella 2012 ($40) This traditional blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes is on the sweet side, which we expect from an Amarone, with heady flavors of smoke, raisins and dried black cherries. Try it with more aromatic cheeses such as French Camembert, and other stronglyflavored foods. WW 91-92.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. Is there something interesting I can do with empty wine bottles? Rick S., MiamiA. Lots of things. Try turning them into a lamp, which can be a perfect accent to your man (or woman) cave. Youll need a few simple tools and a DIY lamp kit, which is very easy to find online. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

CUISINEFor diner basics with a side of whimsy, get PoachedThe menu at Poached in Bonita Springs and Naples includes nine omelets, six eggs benedicts and seven French toasts along with eight salads and dozens of sandwiches in the form of panini, wraps, pitas, burritos and croissants. Not to mention a separate list of weekly breakfast and lunch specials to consider. The sheer numbers of options are enough to scramble your brain as you try to decide: breakfast or lunch, healthy or hearty, home fries, hash brown patties or hash brown casserole? Its been a few years since I visited, but I can recall suffering the same level of indecision when it came time order. Back then, this brunch spot was called Toast, but the owners later changed the name because a Chicago restaurant already had registered a federal trademark on Toast. The word Poached reflects the many variations of eggs benedict served, but the one-word name also hints at the modest ambition of providing simple food and fresh ingredients, as the restaurants website says. Im not sure I would refer to salted caramel French toast (stuffed with caramel cream cheese and chocolate chips) or banana oatmeal brulee (torched brown sugar and whipped cream) as simple food. In fact, Poached conjures variations on classic American dishes that show imagination and whimsy offered side by side with the no-frills originals for those who prefer the basic and familiar. You can get your eggs benedict with traditional Canadian bacon, or you can get it Caliente with spicy chorizo patties and black beans. Poached also strives to incorporate wholesome ingredients, including locally baked breads, freshly squeezed juice from Sun Harvest Citrus oranges and housemade granola. Our specials are inspired by local, seasonal ingredients, quality products and most importantly customer requests, the website says. While Poached delivers on much of what it strives for, things can go awry when the indoor and outdoor tables are packed and the staff is racing to keep up. A server may take your beverage requests then disappear far too long before coming back to get the rest of the order. Food may not arrive as hot as it should. Or a plate might feel very hot to the touch as if it had just been snatched from a steamy dishwasher and unintentionally raise the temperature of chilled food thats been placed on it. Yet even in the weeds of the noonhour crush, there will be unflagging smiles and warm hospitality from the staff, who acknowledge their regular customers. Not being in a hurry, we werent too stressed by the pace of service and tried to relax and enjoy our hot tea, Stans signature Colombian roast coffee and Diet Coke ($2.65 each). We did the time warp, listening to the oldies of our youth piped through the dining room. We admired the original artwork hanging on the walls, stylized paintings of coffee cups and dripping citrus illuminated by the bright light that floods in through massive windows. The ceiling is a playful checkerboard of pastel shades that reminded us of eggshells, pale yolks and bright egg whites. Two us decided on breakfast, which is served all day, ordering from the weekly specials. The Big, Fat Cranberry Pecan Belgian Waffle ($10.99 with choice of eggs and meat) had a golden, crisp crust and fluffy interior the epitome of a good waffle. It was flecked with dried fruit that added pops of tartness and chopped nuts that brought some crunch, but it would have been even better with more of each. Good, thick maple syrup was served in a small pitcher. The scrambled eggs we chose were warm and puffy, but the thick strips of chewy bacon were not even warm. The Gulf Coast omelet ($10.99 with choice of potato and toast) was just right temperature-wise and substantial in size. It was stuffed to the edges with tasty fillings succulent large shrimp (halfheartedly blackened), spicy crumbled chorizo, creamy black beans and sauted peppers and topped with chopped tomatoes, fresh cilantro and a light coating of hollandaise. The triangular hash-brown patties were super-crispy from deep frying and fluffy within golden, crunchy perfection. Two slices of honey whole-grain wheat bread were included but hardly needed. Our one lunch item was the cranberry chicken salad wrap ($9.99 with choice of potato), and like the waffle there werent a lot of cranberries in the honey-sweetened salad. It did have a good amount of chicken, spinach, tomatoes and cucumbers, though. The wrap was served on the mysteriously hot plate mentioned earlier, which added an unpleasant warmth to the bland, mayonnaise-heavy potato salad we chose as the side. We give credit to Poached for putting new spins on tried-and-true dishes. But at the same time, we hope in the future that some of that attention will be spent on polishing the details that make or break even basic diner fare. drew Poached>> Hours: 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. daily >> Reservations: Not accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: $6.99-$12 >> Beverages: Beer and wine >> Specialties of the house: Breakfast and lunch >> Volume: Loud when busy >> Parking: Plaza lot >> Website: www.breakfastnaples.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 24600 S.

For for interior designers, however, there may be no greater strength than the ability to take snippets of interests and turn them into a clients dream. And thats what Leslie Thompson of Malibu West Interiors does on a daily basis. Luxe Livings Michael Korb spoke with her about her craft. Q: When did you first know you wanted to be a designer? A: As a teen, I actively participated in my familys renovation project.

To stay relevant, I utilize continuing education, professional affiliations and trade shows within the design industry. Q: Do you have a formula for how you create or build out a space? A: The one thing I know for sure is that each project is dynamic, so I avoid anything that feels repetitive and instead keep my goal and the homeowners goal in the forefront. That goal is to create a home that is a refuge, an expression of who the homeowner is in the world a home like a good friend, which supports and sustains you in future years. Q: What do you ask your clients to help you get started and inspired? A: In the initial phase we encourage relaxed conversations so that the client will reveal themselves, by means of telling a story, how they dress, interests, travel, the kind of food they like or even a single word. Together, we analyze their lifestyle to get on the right design avenue. Q: Is there a trend happening now that youre excited about or that you hope disappears ASAP? A: Here are two trends I love: First, we are finally free of design constraints that dictate should and should nots. Today it is more about curation, the creation of personal preferences, bringing forth interiors that evoke an emotional response per an individual experience. And second, todays savvy builders and homeowners understand the necessity of forming a collaborative unit with the interior designer and architect early in the blueprint stage. This team will pay dividends by saving untold money and time throughout the project.

BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhat do you do when you realize the house you live in just doesnt cut it anymore? You go looking for another. Thats what Nancy Apel and Greg Stubblefield did when they decided their abode overlooking Naples Bay had become outdated and was too small for their family. When a house down the street went up for sale, they took a look and fell in love with the interior and the architectural design. But their current location had a far better view. So they called architect Rob Herscoe of Herscoe Hajjar Architects and interior designer Judith Liegeois, both of whom had helped create the home down the street, and asked them to reimagine their house along the same, bigger and better lines. They kept the original house, says Ms. Liegeois. But Rob, an under-appreciated genius of an architect, took the very dated floor plan with small, not wellappointed rooms and just blew it open. It turned into this amazingly workable, livable space that connects totally to the outdoors. The revamped six-bedroom, seven fulland three This home in Aqualane Shores found new life when architect Rob Herscoe, interior designer Judith Liegeois and builder BCB Homes collaborated on a renovation that resulted in an indoor/outdoor gem for owners Greg Stubble eld and Nancy Apel.

COVER STORYLORI HAMILTON / COURTESY PHOTOSWith an organic palette and clean lines, the interior maintains a casual vibe while still feeling modern and fresh, which allows it to transition seamlessly to the outdoor living space overlooking Naples Bay.-bath home seems to defy any particular style and yet is a monument to clean lines, beautiful surfaces and outdoor living at its finest. This house suits the millennium, Ms. Liegeois says. Its more for casual living. There are no formal living areas in the house. Though there are separate living and family rooms, they are connected. It just works perfectly for a large family that loves living life on the water: swimming, boating, fishing, grilling, jet skiing, etc. They wanted a home that would accommodate all their children. They wanted a home that flowed meaning from room to room there was a sense of continuity, says Ms. Liegeois. As youre sitting in the family room you can see into the living room and/or into the study. The family can be in different parts of the house but still be connected with one another. A soft palette of whites, creams and taupe is used throughout, and many of the fabrics throughout are indoor-outdoor so they can take a lot of use. The main living spaces (the living and family rooms) are separated only by a standalone two-way fireplace thats wrapped in beautiful Venetian plaster.

acacia thorns hangs above the livingroom side, while a big TV fills that place of importance on the family-room side. The family room is open to the large kitchen, where a host of different tones and surfaces come into play. We wanted the house to be modern and clean in its design and finishes, but not so anemically modern, says Ms. Liegeois. So the (kitchen cabinetry) is an open-grained, ashy-driftwood. We wanted to bring organic elements to the clean lines of the house. There are a lot of organic pieces. A massive marble island resides under wooden beams a visual cue that continues in the family room. Organic elements show up elsewhere, as well: in the raw wood plank dining table and the leafshaped accent chairs as well as in the fur throws in the bedrooms. Its all a wonderful conversation in each room that lends itself to the natural elements of outdoors. The study also has a natural feel to it, thanks in large part to its walls being covered in warm gray/taupe grass cloth. Another unique feature to that room is that it has a window within the home itself, lo oking through the foyer and into the living room. So when you are in the study you look out through the door and into the family room, but when you look out the window, you see into the living room, says Ms. Liegeois. Its like a pop-up study. Of course, the foyer deserves mention as well, if not just for the statement circular window over the entrys double doors, but also for the round chandelier, by New Zealand lighting designer David Trubridge, who gets his inspiration from Maori people and the flax plant that is native to the region. Again, its a natural element that works beautifully in a modern setting.Moving outdoorsPart of what makes the outdoor living space so accessible is that when the sliding glass doors are totally pushed back the stone floors from inside transition directly to the decking without a lip or step. And that leads right onto a stunning zeroedge pool overlooking more seating and the beautiful waters of Naples Bay. That was hugely important to them, adds Ms. Liegeois. As the team chose furnishings and accessories for the re-imagined family home, Ms. Liegeois stressed that everything selected for the inside needed to work along with everything selected for the outdoor areas. They become one, she says about the two areas. On a beautiful day when you open up all those doors, the family room and living room are totally connected to the outdoors. The areas are seamless. Its done very thoughtfully. And that means the homeowners have many more years of enjoyment ahead of them in a place they truly call home.

FLORIDA WEEKLY JANUARY 2018 LUXE LIVING 11 BY MICHAEL KORBFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen you have weather like we do, you want to take full advantage of it every chance you get. And that means living outdoors as much as possible. But outdoor furniture can be hit or miss. Some looks good but doesnt hold up to the elements. And some is tough as nails but looks like it was designed in the 1950s from leftover parts of the USSRs Sputnik program. Luckily, those two problems have been solved by SUNS Brand, a Dutch outdoor furniture manufacturer that has just opened its first brand store in the U.S. here in Naples. The SUNS Brand Store in Mercato features the full line of the award-winning furniture. We are headquartered in Plymouth, Mass., says Gabriel Kroeze, managing director of SUNS USA, the sole distributor for the brand in the U.S. But we were shipping so much furniture from Massachusetts to Naples and had so many customers telling us we should open a showroom in Naples that it just made sense for us. And with that move the company opened its own warehouse locally, significantly cutting down on delivery times. SUNS is known to be much more contemporary and European than most traditional outdoor furniture and uses a unique mix of materials including wicker, aluminum and reclaimed teak. People come into the store and say, Is this outdoor furniture? It looks more like indoor furniture, Mr. Kroeze says. I hear that almost every day. The showroom displays the manufacturers five expansive collections (broken into colors: red, green, blue, orange, gray), giving customers a wide range of stylish choices. For example, the award-winning Isla design is set on a platform of reclaimed teak and features convertible back frames, allowing users to sit forward or backward. SUNS features everything for the outdoors, from dining tables and chairs, lounges, sofas, chairs, bar sets and some accessories. This is the first store that really shows what the SUNS brand is all about, says Mr. Kroeze. Its a beautiful showroom. When you walk in you see a mixture of every SUNS collection with the latest models that they produce for 2018. Naples is a little bit different than Europe in that you have year-round beautiful weather, but where we have the four seasons we look use every little bit of sunshine to be outside in comfort. To that end, SUNS strives to bring the same level of comfort people are used to inside their home to their outdoor furnishings. The company even has its own line of fabrics specially designed for the Florida climate. Our fabric is our own fabric, says Mr. Kroeze. It is extremely water repellent. The rain pops up like on a polished car. Our framing is powder-coated aluminum. Its really made to be outside. And isnt that the reason all of us are in Naples to begin with? SUNS Brand Store 9118 Strada Place, Mercato 631-5114 www.sunbrandstore.comSHOP TALKSUNS Brand Store makes your outdoors shineTIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYDecidedly Scandinavian and European in design, SUNS Brand furnishings utilize reclaimed teak and boast an appeal that makes them perfect for indoors and outdoors alike in Southwest Florida. A constant and growing demand from customers in the Northeast to ship furniture to their winter homes in Naples prompted Gabriel Kroeze, managing director of SUNS USA, the distributor for the Dutch outdoor furniture manufacturer, to open up shop in Mercato and also to have a Naples warehouse. e ally
