OUTDOORS. CULTURE. EVENTS. SUNSETS 2 01 8 VISITORS GUIDE TO LEE COLLIER AND CHARLOTTE COUNTIE S Who would have thought the commercial real estate sector could learn a thing or two from faith? Thats just what happened in Naples when two churches engaged in an unusual business transaction: swapping properties, with zero negotiation on the prices, to satisfy the financial and spacing needs of both congregations. Executive Pastor James Boyd of Life Christian Church, who also happens to be a commercial real estate agent in Michigan, came up with the church swap proposal after learning about another local congregation facing some tough questions about its future. Pastor James and his wife, Tracy, who serves as lead pastor at Life Christian Church, moved to Naples 6 years ago from Michigan to help revitalize a church that was hurting for some fresh faces. Since then, Life Christian has grown from fewer than three dozen adult members to more than 650, with Sunday attendance swelling to more than 1,100 over two services. Its been such a fun ride, Pastor James says of the journey. The biggest part isnt really the number (of people). We dont just want to gather people; we want to see life change in people.

COMMENTARYDonald Trumps mirrorDonald Trump has provided a significant gift to the American people, and I for one am deeply grateful. The Trump administration the Trump adventure is a finely polished mirror, a mirror somehow guileless and incapable of flattery. We Americans love flattery. We love the mirrors that tell us were the greatest, the most generous, the most ruggedly individual. That we were born with equal rights, we ended slavery in a violent war, we settled the West, we survived a terrible depression, we won World Wars I and II, we put the official stamp on civil rights, we saved Europe and we saved the world. We like to glance in a mirror that tells us: Hard work means success regardless of race, religion, background or (more recently) sexual orientation. But that flattering picture is the image of the trick mirror. It isnt true, and not because it isnt the case. On the contrary, it is the case, more or less. Whats true, however, is different; the truth is nuanced and significantly thornier. We are or we can be all those things we prefer to see in the American trick mirror. And we can even claim we rejected racism and sexism by electing the first black president and in the popular vote, at least the first woman president in the history of the United States, in 2008 and 2016. Didnt we? Well, almost. Lets call her the ghost president. Those are facts. But in the last 18 months and thanks to Mr. Trump, Americans have been better able to see the truth about themselves, and not just our favorite facts. In the long run that can only bode well. Better to know than not know. The truth became evident again last week when Mr. Trump questioned the need to welcome any immigrants from shithole countries Haiti, El Salvador and the 54 nations that exist on the African continent, inhabited by more than 1.2 billion people stewing together in a mix of races, religions, cultures, languages and ambitions that almost defy demographics. He compared them to would-be immigrants from Norway, with less than 6 million prosperous people 2.5 million less than live in the five boroughs of New York City 95 percent of them Norwegian by birth and history and the rest either European or other (2 percent). In other words, Mr. Trump compared a people snow white from their nose to their toes to Africans, Haitians and Salvadorans, who are not. Lets pretend for a moment that the comparison Mr. Trump made was merely pragmatic, not racist. In practical terms, for example, is Haiti a shithole country? Some 35 percent of Americans, those who continue to support Mr. Trump, think so. They began to defend his statement in social media posts with vigor and a logic that went like this: One, Haiti is a shithole so Trump is telling the truth and the liberal media is slanting it; and two, we are not racists for saying so. Practically speaking, theyre right. The economy of Haiti is in a shambles, corruption is widespread, the government is ineffective, the island is besieged by natural calamities and crime is high. El Salvador can be described in similar terms. Africa? Those terms dont work for the massive continent, but for some countries, yes. But the truth lies far from such facts. The truth is, Haitians have as much courage and grace as anybody on the planet, and so do Salvadorans, and so do Africans, including the North Africans. I know some of them, Americans living and working to establish lives of opulence, security and opportunities for their children the rest of us embrace. But the people I know send money back to their relatives. Do you and I send money to individuals whom we owe nothing? They go back in the middle of disasters and try to save family members and friends. They rebuild little villages and towns where they grew up, start schools, establish systems that provide clean water, invite their families to see this shining city on the hill, a phrase we other Americans have proudly used to characterize ourselves. Heres the funny thing about the mirror: Ireland could have been described in exactly the same way Mr. Trump and a third of Americans see Haiti, now as a shithole, a place from which 4.5 million Irish immigrated to the United States between 1860 and 1930. England, too, with many other European places. And Asia? Well, of course, from the Koreas to the southeast, and from India to China to Japan. Shitholes all. During the Great Famine in Ireland, from 1845 to 1852, 1 million people starved to death not just from the potato blight but from the policies and laws of the British, who attempted their extermination. Thats 1 million human beings on a single, little island. No wonder they came. For centuries in England, people were burned, hung and decapitated, their heads mounted around city gates and city centers if their politics, religion or daily behavior didnt suit the powers that were. No wonder they came. Similar conditions existed at one time or another in all the major European countries and Russia and Asia, as well. And eventually their people the lucky, the bold, the tough and enduring made their way here. No wonder. What this means becomes evident in the Trump mirror: First, were looking at the reflection of a nation founded by shithole escapees, who brought so much energy and talent and grit. Second, without shitholes the United States of America would be nothing. And finally, we can recognize this inarguable truth (thank you, Mr. Trump): A failure to understand is a failure to be truly American. b v i 2 L roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Actually, he never really stops. Im referring, of course, to President Tweety Bird Trump. One has to show all the due respect, and that is all I can muster. So Tweety is pecking away as he starts off the New Year with his Twitter bombast bomb blasts. Most of his output is the routine ridiculous stuff: He suggests that another political opponent in this case Huma Abedin, who has been attached at the hip to Hillary Clinton her entire adult life should be jailed for her sloppy handling of classified emails, at least in President Tweety Birds mind. He also takes credit for the significant aviation achievement that there were no commercial airline fatalities in 2017. Of course, he had little to do with it. And then theres his running trashtalk battle with North Koreas Kim Jong Un, who would be a clown, except for the fact that hes developing a nuclear arsenal that threatens world annihilation if not expertly finessed. Tweety obviously is not a finesse kinda guy. He ridicules the North Korean tyrant by calling him Rocket Man. Theyre well-matched, and its not just their small, pudgy hands. They both have fragile egos that they try to cover with bluster. So when Kim makes a speech taunting the United States by saying, The nuclear b utton is always on my desk, Tweety Bird Trump cant resist: Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works! Besides the fact that Tweety is once again displaying that hes always very insecure about size, hes also playing with fire at the very moment Kim also was hinting he might be willing to lower the temperature just a tad. Maybe the Trump belligerence is part of an Art of the Deal scheme. I know ... lets do like everyone else and search for clues in his 1987 bestseller Art of the Deal. Yes, it was written by someone else with little input from Donald Trump, but lets look anyway. How about this quote: I never get too attached to one deal or one approach. That might explain why Tweety Bird constantly contradicts himself. It keeps his adversaries off balance as theyre trying to bargain with him. The other side of that is that his word means very little because he cant be trusted to mean what he says, and has little or no impulse control. Heres another insight worth pondering: You cant con people, at least not for long. Thats the thing: His base, those millions of people who were conned into thinking hed be their champion, should have figured out from his actions that he was blatantly ignoring the reasons that alienated them in the first place. Instead, he has constantly promoted the interests of the same robber barons who have cheated the system and obliterated economic fair play. If people will eventually catch on, they certainly havent yet. That other Tweety Bird, the cartoon figure, always exclaims, I tot I taw a puddy tat. When he looks at Trump, hell say, I tot I taw an autocrat. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Yes, take Oprah seriouslyIf Hillary Clinton could deliver a political speech half as effectively as Oprah Winfrey, she might be president today. The actress, media mogul and erstwhile queen of daytime TV gave what, if she ever becomes president, will be known to history as the Golden Globes Address. The first de facto convention speech ever delivered at an awards show, it brought down the house and predictably stoked talk of Oprah 2020. In the era Before Trump, this would have been risible. Once upon a time, military service, political experience, a policy portfolio and national-security chops were mandatory to plausibly run for president. That time feels like a long time ago. What Donald Trump proved is that a celebrity with charisma, performative ability and gobs of free media can, in the right circumstances, stomp conventional politicians who lack all three. People who were merely governors and senators, who had never really performed on a big stage or truly mastered the media (they were just politicians, after all), stood at a distinct disadvantage. A common cold-water argument against Oprah running is that Democrats will want the opposite of Trump in 2020, an experienced, boring politico whos well-versed in the issues and a reliably competent executive. This line works on paper. Republicans said the same thing about Barack Obama, who prior to 2008 had come as close to genuine celebrity-hood as a working politician can get. Yet Donald Trump succeeded where the worthy, earnest, managerial Mitt Romney failed. On the current trajectory, what Democrats will most need in 2020 is someone with a big enough personality that Trump cant diminish and negatively brand him or her. This is what he did with the rest of the Republican field and Hillary Clinton in 2016, and he easily could do the same against Pocahontas, aka Elizabeth Warren, and Crazy Bernie Sanders. Oprah, used to commanding a massive microphone and managing a matchless brand, might be relatively immune to this treatment. Shed be the empathetic healer, the advocate of abused women, running to make history in the shadow of the civil-rights movement. If, that is, shes truly interested. Even the best campaigns have down cycles and bring humiliations of the sort celebrities usually avoid. Why would Oprah, who at the moment never has to encounter anyone who isnt in awe of her, want to sign up for that? Half the country would, by definition, begin to dislike her. She would have to fight with that part of the Democratic base committed to Bernie Sanders and suspicious of her as a Hollywood billionaire. Shed experience something that shes never truly had to encounter: negative press. For the first time, she wouldnt be completely in control of her own image. Shed have to answer for her promotion of kooky products and theories over the years, and open up more about a private life that has been almost entirely shielded from public view. If Oprah ran and lost, shed become a failed presidential candidate and could presumably never quite return to being Oprah Winfrey again. In short, there are compelling reasons for her not to make the plunge. The inherent absurdity of the idea is not one of them.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY that range from all-in-one motor coaches to fifth-wheel and bumper-pull trailers filled with the recognizable trappings of home life: cats and dogs, comfy sofas, keys hanging by the door, air fresheners that smell of Christmas, showers, stoves and cabinets, even some with washers and dryers, albeit usually on a relatively small scale. Home is where we park it, says Joe Masiello, who lives with his wife, Donna, in their Montana High Country RV trailer year round. Their stops over the last year include Virginia, Tennessee and Lee County. RVers come from nearly any place in the U.S., including Alaska. Many are seasonal residents from Midwest or Northeastern states. While their ages often in their 60s and 70s make them part of the baby boomer or earlier generations, they also include what some RVers and resort managers say they have observed is a growing number of families with children. Although there are no official counts of who lives life on the road for what periods of time, most are considered to be part-time RVers, such as those who spend a clement winter in South Florida before rolling back north to fixed residences. A growing number others live life full time on wheels, possibly keeping a home base or post office box somewhere, while running their business from wherever they are or traveling as workampers: going from job to job or volunteer position throughout the year. The Masiellos routine for several years has been to travel from a campground in Virginia to enormous Amazon.com warehouses, where they work a seasonal job with hundreds of other RVers over the holiday shipping season, this year in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Finally, they travel on to the Army Corps W.P. Franklin Lock & Dam park and campground in east Lee County outside Fort Myers. Here until April, they and other volunteers make the rounds at public schools to teach the Corps water safety courses, featuring Bobber the Water Safety Dog, for prekindergarten through fifth grade kids. In exchange, they get a place to park and hook up to amenities for the season. The Amazon job is their main source of income for the year, and it is hard work. A company spokesperson, Brenda Alfred, said it hires hundreds of seasonal workers through its CamperForce program for RVers. For three to four months ending on Dec. 23, they work at four huge warehouses, which range in size from 800,000 to 1,000,000 square feet, which Amazon calls fulfillment centers in Kentucky and Tennessee. Workers are assigned to either pick, pack, stow or receive packages sent during the holidays. Pay rates vary from $10.75 to $11.75 per hour and include a paid campsite, according to the company website. Workers are expected to be open to working voluntary and mandatory extra hours with time-and-a-half pay for overtime. They are expected to move large quantities of merchandise throughout a 10 to 12-hour day in warehouse conditions that can range in temperature from 60 to 90 degrees. Mr. and Ms. Masiello, who are 74 and 69, respectively, are also one of Amazons love stories she said. They met working at one of the warehouses in 2013. That same day Donna started, Mr. Masiello recalled, I just kept looking at this good-looking girl and going mmhmmm and the rest is history. Ms. Masiello, who grew up in Pittsburgh, Pa., and had past experience in RV traveling before meeting her husband, said the life has allowed her to see the U.S. and learn about its history at places where they stay such as Greys Point Camp in Topping, Va., on the Rappahannock River. I was a gypsy, she said. I always wanted to see everything and never could I got to see all the states, practically, so its been great. The couple hopes to break from their yearly routine in coming years. Wed like to get out West and visit the rest of the country, said Mr. Masiello, who is their designated driver with his past experience behind the wheel of a semi-truck. Richard and Linda Beck, the Masiellos fellow volunteers and friends at the Franklin Lock campground, are retirees who live in their RV for four months per year here before returning to their home in Strasburg, Ohio. They find the volunteer work rewarding, teaching kids lessons that can save their lives, and the weather here isnt bad either. Its nice to leave the cold weather in Ohio and come down here where its nice and warm, Ms. Beck said. FOR SOME, RVING IS ENTIRELY A LIFESTYLE choice while for others it can also be a way to save money on rising housing costs while offering a unique chance to see the countryside and meet fellow travelers. I can see the state of Florida anytime I want and bring my home with me or anywhere in the country for that matter, said Debi Bartnik.RV LIFEFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOTop: Scores of RVs were on display at the 2017 Florida RV SuperShow in Tampa.

And its affordable. The people are amazing that you meet. Weve met everyone from an astronaut to engineers to military, its an amazing lifestyle. The Bartniks, who were parked at Jetty Park Campground in Cape Canaveral in early January, run an antiques and estate sales business, Atlantic To Gulf Estate Services, out of their 36-foot Tiffin Allegro. Also along for the ride: their 14-yearold Scottish terrier, Koko, who is enjoying Jetty Park. Here she gets to run, chase squirrels, she loves it, she absolutely loves it, Ms. Bartnik said. They regularly attend shows such as the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival on the first weekend of every month. The biggest show of the year is coming up on Feb. 2-4, Ms. Bartnik said. They have also stayed at Jonathan Dickinson State Park near Jupiter. She gives RV life a good review, .5 out 10, subtracting a half point for lack of space. You have to be able to live with your spouse in an enclosed space, she said. Theres no door to slam if you get mad. This is what I always tell people if they say I dont know if I could do that: If you like cruising, and you dont mind being on a cruise, you may like this lifestyle. Im originally from Long Island and Im an Italian cook so what I had to get used to is the cooking, the limited amount I could cook at a time. To get mail, Ms. Bartnik said they have a post office box on Merritt Island, but most parks have mail service for RVers as well. THE RV INDUSTRY HAS GROWN DRAMATIcally since bottoming out during the Great Recession, said Dave Kelly, director of marketing for the Florida RV Trade Association. The number of shipments of RVs from manufacturers to dealers in the U.S. dropped from 353,000 in 2007 to 165,000 in 2009, before growing each year. The count for 2017 is expected to be about 500,000. The whole industry is just exploding, he said. In Jessica Bruders 2017 book about people who live life on the road, Nomadland, she reports on how the economy, including the rising cost of home ownership and rents compared to stagnant wages, has been a factor in pushing many towards living life full time in an RV or trailer, going from job to job. Mr. Kelly attributes the increase to a lifestyle choice and the attraction of the social aspect, being a part of a friendly community, and says that people who commit to selling their homes or leaving rental units and living full time in an RV without any home base are rare. But were seeing more people we call extended timers, he said, who go out on the road five, six, seven months out of the year or more. The internet and cellphones have just made it even more liberating, more freedom for people who do want to get out on the road, he said. At Sanctuary RV Resort in Bonita Springs, which opened in 2014, 400 spots are sold out with people on the waiting list. Thats not unique to us, either, thats everybody, all our competitors, too, said general manager Rebecca Troyer. The RV market is definitely on the rise in the whole country. Generally, its baby boomers, and they are getting out of the cold weather. So instead of purchasing a home in our area they can try different areas before they decide if they want to purchase something. The average age of those at the resort is 59, which includes some younger families. Weve had several campers who are homeschooling and they travel all around the country, and theyve committed for like a five-year time span to go to every state and use it as part of their homeschooling, she said. Weve also found, too, that the couples that are younger they can work from anywhere in the country, their job is like a work-from-home type of job. At Collier-Seminole State Park on the southwestern edge of the Everglades, 105 spots are for RVs and tents, which allow stays of up to two weeks, also fill up during the busy season in South Florida from roughly Thanksgiving through April. Were definitely seeing a rise in visitation and an increase in size in RVs, said Terrance Torvund, the parks manager. Many travelers pass through on a circuit of state campgrounds including Koreshan State Park in Estero and places such as Bahia Honda in the Keys, he said. Collier-Seminole also recruits a staff of 11 volunteers each year, typically RVers, who park there for about four months in return for their service. They help us maintain the park such as checking in campers, cleaning the bathrooms, greeting visitors and helping us with our resource management goals such as clearing trails and moving exotics, Mr. Torvund said. A LITTLE MORE THAN THREE HOURS AWAY from the Bartnik residence at Cape Canaveral, on a warm Monday evening in December, happy hour was just concluding outside Paula and Mike Gorrells home at Gulf View RV Resort in Punta Gorda. Inside their 33-foot Glendale Titanium camper, which Ms. Gorrell appreciates especially for its big drawers and closet space, lurked two cats, Holly and Uno. The couple and their neighbors had gathered outside in lawn chairs for a few beers, snacks, laughs and conversation, such as that nights college football championship game between Georgia and Alabama or RV maintenance. Mr. Gorrell, a retired electrician who worked in the construction industry, is able to do most of the repairs on their home himself. He is originally from Reynoldsburg, Ohio, while his wife is from Grafton, Mass., and in their sliver of yard they have two flags planted close together, one for the Ohio State Buckeyes and another for the New England Patriots. After they were married in the 1980s, their first RV, a 14-foot 1972 Shasta, was an affordable way to go camping with family. One of their favorite memories of RVing is traveling to the NASCAR races in Talladega, Ala., in the 1990s. They discovered Gulf View five years ago and found it so agreeable with its many activities and welcoming neighbors, theyve been back ever since, driving down during the winter months from their home in Clinton, Mass. where they first met so many years ago as high school teachers. For a free overnight stop on the way down, they prefer a truck stop where there is usually more activity going on 24/7, instead of a Wal-Mart or Cracker Barrel, which often allow RVers to stay if they follow rules of etiquette such as leaving after one night, not making a mess, and buying something from the store. They often stop at a Loves truck stop a few hours away from Gulf View the night before, get a hot meal and some rest, and drive on to their winter destination during daylight hours. Comin in in the darks a bummer, Mr. Gorrell said. While the Gorrells are not ready to sell their house and live in their RV full time, some of their neighbors are. Now youve got a bunch more people in this park who are selling their houses and going full time, he said. COURTESY PHOTOThe Collier-Seminole State Park campground offfers 105 spots for tents and RVs.

All are welcome. Although admission is free and registration is not required, more than 750 people had signed up as of press time earlier this week. Marchers will begin forming at 4 p.m. at the intersection of Broad Avenue South and Third Street South. The 1-mile march sets out at 5:30 p.m. and will proceed north on Third Street South, turn right on Fifth Avenue South and right on Eighth Street South to enter Cambier Park from the south side. The rally from 6-8:30 p.m. in the park will include several speakers, numerous community organizers and representatives of various organizations that promote respect, dignity and justice for all. Speakers include Kathy Mayo, president of the local chapter of NOW; Char Wendel, professor at Hodges University and former president of Planned Parenthood in Collier County; activist and social worker Araceli Gomez; Annisa Karim, vice president of the Muslim Democratic Caucus of Florida; and a representative from the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. Tamara Paquette will serve as emcee. Eight female artists have been commissioned to create original pieces to adorn the stage and to be auctioned off online the week after the rally. Young filmmakers from Lorenzo Walker Technical College will premiere original short films on womens issues. Local bands The Woodwork and the True Blue Soul Band, both with female lead singers, will provide entertainment. Attendees are encouraged to wear red and black the colors of the #MeToo movement raising awareness of sexual abuse and harassment and, if they desire, to carry signs addressing a key issue of importance to them (i.e., womens rights, sexism, racism, climate change, LGBTQ, xenophobia and immigration). Collier Freedom invites all those who wish to carry #MeToo placards to gather in a #Me Too cortege at the center of the march. Collier Freedom T-shirts will be available for a $25 donation to the grassroots organization that was founded to create an inclusive community regardless of race, nationality, faith or sexual orientation for a common vision of freedom, equality and social justice.

Location is everything and everything you need is RIGHT HERE. HEREYou are BEHIND THE WHEELThe potency of plugging inThe plug-in hybrids have an interesting allure. They are built with gasoline engines that can power a car all on its own, and they can also be plugged in so that batteries can save enough juice to be a pure electric machine over urbansized distances. This balance even comes with some nice breaks, including $4,000 in tax credits and the use of I-95 Express Lanes without paying a toll (after registration). Its even a good way to get preferred parking. After all, many electric vehicle charging stations are becoming some of the sweetest spots at shopping centers. Although be on the lookout occupancy fees for charged vehicles a trend that will likely increase as plug-in hybrids become more popular. Its surprisingly easy to get to this level of green. Cars like the Toyota Prius Prime and upcoming Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in are great contenders because they offer good pure electric range, good build quality and if optioned correctly, both can fall below $25K after tax incentives. While those are specially built budget hybrid machines, the segment does not end there. Were getting a growing trend of incognito green machines that look like their more conventional siblings. The Ford Fusion Energi was one of the first to try this. While it seemed more of a novelty when it debuted a half-dozen years ago, a recent refresh and constantly lowering of the base price (now under $30K after tax credits) has made it something to reconsider. Today it can go about 20 miles as a pure electric machine or a bladder-busting 610-mile total range long haul that seems like real utility in a family-sized package. But before anyone runs out to buy a Fusion Energi just to go from Naples to Atlanta on one gas/electric fill-up, there are some things to remember. First, the air conditioner thats so necessary in Florida will cut deeply into EPA range ratings, especially during all-electric driving. Also, regenerative braking means these hybrids get their best millage in the city. Its also good to beware of cars using electrification for performance. In the Mini world, an S is about adding extra power. For example, the regular Cooper Countryman All4 comes with a 134 hp 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder motor. The Cooper S model adds an extra cylinder and a 41 percent jump in horsepower. The nomenclature gets a little different for the plug-in SE model. It comes with the base 134 hp turbo, and its now supplemented by an 87 hp electric motor. The combined total makes the SE more powerful than the S model, but theres a catch. The Countryman SE really needs owner participation. If it never gets plugged in, the hybrid relies almost solely on the base-level gas motor. Plus, the electrification equipment adds a hefty 405 pounds over the standard Cooper Countryman All4. So, without battery power, one of the most powerful Minis available now feels like a base model with two adults and a child permanently along for the ride. Not only do the battery packs add weight, but they have to be placed somewhere in the vehicle. For example, the Fusion Energi gives away a substantial amount of its trunk space. The Mini wisely doesnt infringe on the cargo utility of this hatchback, but it does shrink the fuel tank to under 10 gallons. That gives the SE an EPA maximum range of 270 miles 133 less than the standard Countryman. The most interesting plug-in frontier might be in people haulers. After all, the short trips of an EV are defined by daily school runs and neighborhood soccer practice. Chryslers Pacifica Hybrid trades in the second-row floor storage for battery housing. So, it doesnt intrude on the main cargo area of the fuel tank. Plus, the V6 gas motor offers decent performance without electric charge. And when its fully juiced up, the hybrid beats the standard version with up to 40 percent better fuel economy and an extra 152 miles of range. Electrifying a Pacifica costs $7,400 extra, and its probably no coincidence that this currently qualifies for a larger $7,500 tax credit to ease the burden. Plug-in hybrids have an appeal because theyre environmentally friendly EVs for short trips as well as gas-powered cross-country haulers. However, the dual-power versatility comes with sacrifices. This is a topic we are going to have to keep revisiting as the utility goes up and the prices go down. But for today, be clear about your needs before adding the spark of electricity to your gas-powered machine. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

I dont know where Im at. Im just drunk driving. The dispatcher urged Lester to pull over and park, but he explained that he was driving on the wrong side of the road near a Publix and wondered where the police wer e. WTVT reported that officers finally caught up with Lester, who helpfully explained hed had several beers, hadnt slept much and had taken methamphetamine earlier in the day; he was jailed on a DUI charge. Officers later posted on their Facebook page that in this particular incident, nobody was hurt, so we couldnt help but LOTO (that means we Laughed Our Tasers Off). Disgruntled driver Matthew Middleton, 49, of Peterlee, England, spotted a speed camera near Hartlepool Rugby Club in October and decided to take a stand. He got out of his car and stood in front of the camera, blocking it, until police arrested him. Middleton further antagonized the officer by calling him a pig and giving his name as Elvis Presley. They acted like what I did was the crime of the century, Middleton told Metro News. I know I shouldnt have done it. People have just been laughing about it ... well, apart from my wife. Middleton was fined about $54 plus court costs for his antics.AwesomeBertha Vickers of Morgantown, Miss., turned 100 on Jan. 9. To celebrate, she bagged a deer. I was sort of shaking until I got ready to shoot, Vickers told the Clarion Ledger. I didnt think it was all going to go right. Vickers still lives in her home and mows her own lawn, tends a garden and hunts for squirrels. I dont know why everybody is making such a big deal about it, she said. It was just a doe. I would love to kill a buck.Least-competent criminalWhen Dustin Johnson, 22, of Minot, N.D., tried to steal $4,000 worth of merchandise from a local Hobby Lobby, he failed to take into account that shopping carts dont have snow tires. The Grand Forks Herald reported that over a sevenhour period on Jan. 3, Johnson filled a cart then fled the store where the cart became stuck in snow in the parking lot and flipped over. Johnson fell down, then got up to run, leaving behind his wallet with photo ID matching the shoplifters description. Minot police caught up with Johnson at his home.Extreme climate newsIt may be cold where you are, but its hot in Broadford, a small town about an hour from Melbourne, Australia, where on Jan. 5, the highway began melting. Temperatures of 100 degrees Fahrenheit and higher reactivated an ingredient in the road surface, turning it into a sticky mess on the Hume Freeway, 9News reported. Motorists were warned by Victoria police to avoid the right lane and expect delays over a 10km stretch. Officials also put in place a fire ban and urged people to stay indoors until the heat abated.Smoke em if you got emChristians in a Portuguese village carry on a curious tradition during Epiphany: They encourage their young children to smoke cigarettes. Vale de Salgueiro locals told Fox News that nobody is sure what the smoking symbolizes, but the centuries-old tradition persists. And Portuguese authorities dont intervene, despite the fact that the legal age to purchase tobacco in Portugal is 18. Writer Jose Ribeirinha researched the tradition and said that since Roman times, villagers in the region have done things that were out of the norm during winter solstice celebrations.The litigious societySiera Strumlauf and Benjamin Robles of California, and Brittany Crittenden of New York, saw their complaints go up in steam on Jan. 5 when U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers dismissed their lawsuit against Starbucks for underfilling its lattes and mochas. According to Reuters, the judge cited lack of evidence brought by the plaintiffs, who accused the coffee chain of fraud by making its cups too small and instructing baristas to skimp on ingredients and adhere to low fill-to lines on milk pitchers. The suit also claimed milk foam should not be counted toward advertised volumes, an opinion Rogers said reasonable customers do not hold. Starbucks and the plaintiffs had no comment.Weird scienceResearchers have discovered that 99 percent of green sea turtles born in the northern parts of Australias Great Barrier Reef are now female. Sea turtles gender is determined by the temperature at which the eggs are incubated, and warmer temperatures reduce the number of male hatchlings. The author of a new study, marine biologist Michael Jensen, told The News York Times the shift in gender suggests climate change is having a more dramatic effect on sea turtle populations than scientists realized. Were all trying to wrap our heads around how these populations are going to respond to those changes, he said. Researchers warn that continued global warming will threaten the persistence of these populations. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

In an immersive eco-experience for participants, Conservancy naturalists share information about e ach areas unique flora and fauna. At the beachfront Clam Pass just north of Naples city limits, a scenic boardwalk traverses a vibrant natural habitat dominated by special trees. Birding enthusiasts often catch sightings of shore birds, pileated woodpeckers and yellowcrowned night herons along the way. Clam Pass guided nature walks, which take about two hours, set out from the tram stop gazebo near the parking lot at the Collier County park at 9 a.m. Monday-Saturday. On Sundays from 9-11 a.m., a tour guide wearing an orange vest strolls the pass and welcomes queries from walkers. The Briggs Boardwalk, just south of Naples, is a Great Florida Birding Trail site open from dusk to dawn, yearround. The -mile boardwalk is a selfdirected nature trail passing through five unique habitats, including scrub and brackish ponds. Signs along the walk describe the flora and fauna in each community and volunteers help visitors identify plants, birds and other animals they may encounter while out on the trail. A spotting scope set up on an elevated observation platform also overlooks brackish ponds. Conservancy volunteers man the walk from 9 a.m. to noon seven days a week, January-April, except in inclement weather and on holidays. Guided tours take place at 10 a.m. daily from January-March. For more information on either tour, call the Conservancy at 262-0304 or visit www.conservancy.org/offsite/ nature-walks.

Since it was started with a generous gift from Helen and Fred Schick in 1996 (the largest gift up to that time for NCH), the Schick Heart Center has cared for hundreds of thousands of patients, has performed more than 9,000 open heart surgeries and for years has had the highest quality rating based on objective metrics from the Society of Thoracic Surgery. Seven years ago the NCH Heart Institute combined many of the areas independent cardiologists into one group that has since recruited cardiologists from around the nation with additional talents. New professionals and their added abilities continue to help NCH change lives. We now have a structural heart program that performs two major procedures: trans-catheter aortic valve replacement and WATCHMAN, with more to come. Both complex techniques require teams to function together, prepare extensively, select patients appropriately, communicate flawlessly and execute meticulously. We can repair aortic valves without splitting the chest wide open, thus providing a safer and better experience for patients. Drs. Adam Frank, Larry Leslie, Jessie Noboa, Tracey Roth and Brian Solomon, nurse practitioner Vanessa Russino and Steve Cooke as director of our catheterization lab are at the center of a squad of more than 15 who perform TAVR surgery. Anesthesiologists, radiologists, interventional cardiologists and non-interventional cardiologists as well as standby open-heart surgical and cardiac bypass teams are all prepared to provide support.

Did you know that its as true for older people as it is for any age group? Youre never too old to get moving, get stronger and improve your health. Fitting exercise and physical activity into your day can enhance your life in so many ways. Regular physical activity can improve your balance and boost or maintain your strength and fitness. It may also improve your mood and help you manage or lessen the impact of conditions like diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and depression. Despite these proven benefits, exercise and physical activity rates among older people are surprisingly low. Only about 30 percent of people ages 45 to 64 say they engage in regular leisure-time physical activity. This falls to 15 percent of those between the ages of 65, and 74 and 5 percent of people age 85 and older. Experts recommend four types of exercise for older adults: endurance, balance, strength, and flexibility. Brisk walking, dancing, and other endurance exercises improve the health of your heart, lungs and circulatory system. These exercises can make it easier for you to mow the lawn, climb stairs and do other daily activities. Strength exercises include lifting weights or using resistance bands. They can increase muscle strength to help with activities such as carrying groceries or lifting grandchildren. Balance exercises can help prevent falls a major health risk for older adults. Stretching or flexibility exercises can give you more freedom of movement for bending to tie your shoes or looking over your shoulder as you back out of the driveway. Even if you havent been active previously, its important to get started and stay active, says Dr. Richard J. Hodes, director of National Institutes of Healths National Institute on Aging. We know that people want to live independently for as long as they possibly can. By exercising regularly and including more physical activity in their daily routine, older people can preserve their physical function, which is key to doing the everyday things they want to do. To help you get started and keep moving, NIH brought together some of the nations leading experts on aging, exercise and motivation. They developed a guide to exercise for older adults. The guide serves as the basis for a national exercise and physical activity campaign for people ages 50 and older. Its called Go4Life. Older adults can exercise safely, even those who have physical limitations, Dr. Hodes says. Go4Life is based on studies showing the benefits of exercise and physical activity for older people, including those with chronic health conditions. Go4Life exercises are designed to be done safely at home without special equipment or clothing. The free book Exercise & Physical Activity: Your Everyday Guide from the National Institute on Aging (www.nia.nih.gov/ health/exercise-physical-activity) is the core resource for the campaign. Other free materials, such as tip sheets, are also available. Workout to Go (www. go4life.nia.nih.gov/workout-to-go), a mini exercise guide, shows you how you can be active anytime, anywhere. To learn more, visit the Go4Life website at www.go4life.nia.nih.gov where youll find exercises, success stories and tips to help you stay motivated or call 800-222-2225 or email niaic@nia.nih.gov.

Now, geriatric patients can have the same benefit of a replaced aortic valve with a procedure that involves inserting a catheter from the groin into the heart and placing a new valve inside the old diseased valve. Many of these patients typically go home in two days with a couple of Band-aids. One of our recent 80-plus-year-olds played winning tennis a week later (yes, he did exceed doctors orders, but he said he felt so well he couldnt control himself). The WATCHMAN device is another recent addition to our capabilities with similar safer characteristics for patients. Atrial fibrillation is found in 5 percent of people over age 65 and 10 percent of people over 80. Anti-coagulation (blood thinning) therapy has been used in the past to prevent strokes caused by clots that form in one appendage within the heart. Now, the space where clots originated can be filled with the WATCHMAN. At NCH the insertion, again performed without splitting the chest open, requires a team of at least eight clinicians including cardiologists Drs.

CALL NOW TO EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE! Welcome! Volumizing Facelift: Fat vs Fillers FRIDAY, JANUARY 26TH AT 11:30AM HILTON NAPLES PET TALESLove the vet? BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationMy dog Keeper used to be a brownand-white tornado on the exam table at the veterinary hospital. Hes a nice boy otherwise, and I dont know what it was in his past life that made him fear being on top of the table, but it has always been a struggle for veterinarians to examine him because hes trying so hard to escape. Lots of people have the same problem with their dogs and cats. Some animals are so fearful that they tremble, cry, defecate or throw up in the car on the way to the veterinary clinic. We are lucky that Keeper enjoys car rides and even going into the clinic; he just doesnt like being on the exam table. Nonetheless, I wanted to make veterinary visits more pleasant for him, not to mention easier on the vets and staff who had to handle him. My fellow Pet Connection columnist Dr. Marty Becker has been concerned about this problem for a long time. Its what inspired him to found Fear Free, which trains vets, technicians and other animal professionals to recognize, reduce and prevent fear in animals who come to the clinic for care. Veterinarians love pets, and we want them to feel comfortable and loved when they visit us, but the strange sights and smells they encounter at the veterinary clinic can be a big turnoff and even frighten them, he says. Keepers veterinarian had already been using one Fear Free technique sitting on the floor when he examined Keeper. The past couple of visits, I remembered to bring treats or to grab some out of the jar at the clinic, and they were a game-changer. Last week, my husband set Keeper on top of the exam table, and he started to spin around like crazy, trying to escape. I started handing him treats nonstop. That got his attention and kept it. The veterinary technician came in to take his temperature, and Im not sure he even noticed. As long as I was holding treats, he focused on them and nothing else. Keeper will eat anything, but Dr. Becker likes to offer something special. Speaking at the 2017 conference of the American Veterinary Medical Association, he said: Food is currency in a pets world. Youve got to have really good treats. Pet-Tabs are a penny in a pets mind, but they dont normally get hot deli turkey or bacon-cheese-flavored squeeze cheese. For pets who are extremely fearful, preparation for veterinary visits can begin as much as a week in advance with what Dr. Becker calls a magic carpet ride of pheromones. Spray or wipe down the pets carrier regularly with the chemical concoctions that simulate the soothing substances mother dogs excrete or the markers that cats use to make a place or person feel familiar. Line carriers with fleece blankets that have also been treated with pheromones. That helps the car ride be less frightening. We used another Fear Free technique on this most recent visit. I went inside to check us in while my husband waited in the car with the dogs. They didnt enter the clinic until an exam room was ready for them, so there was no sitting around in the lobby and allowing anxiety to build up. I dont know whether Keeper will ever love being on an exam table, but its sure a lot easier now to have him on one. As long as I remember to bring treats, I may no longer have to warn vets and techs to hang on to him so he doesnt try to flee over the edge.

LIFETIME EYE CARE for the Entire Family239.939.3456www.ECOF.comDavid C. Brown, M.D.World Renowned Cataract Surgeon Didnt like some of the black dresses? You, then, are missing the point Black is sexy. Black is also elegant, flattering, and sometimes mysterious. Most importantly, black doesnt have to be boring. At the recent Golden Globes ceremony, nearly every woman, whether she was an actress, a producer, a writer, or even a reporter on the red carpet, showed up in black. Why? Because women, including actresses, waitresses, factory workers, executives and housekeepers are finally speaking up loudly and clearly about sexual harassment, inequality in the workplace and sexual assault in general. It started with the #MeToo movement on social media, which sparked a conversation and a realization that those of us who have experienced harassment and/ or assault are not alone. If it can happen to powerful, famous women like Salma Hayek and Gwyneth Paltrow, and they publicly share their stories, then maybe the rest of us will start thinking and talking, too. #MeToo soon led to the #TimesUp campaign started by artists and activists to better the conditions of all women in the workplace. As one of the founders, actress America Ferrara said in an interview, Times up on silence; Times up on behavior that makes women and minorities less safe in the workplace. The Times Up Legal Defense Fund has raised more than $14 million to help fight sexual harassment cases. With an audience of up to 20 million people, female attendees of the Golden Globes banded together in solidarity and wore all black to bring awareness to the cause. Rather than talk about their gowns on the red carpet they talked about #MeToo and #TimesUp. Most mentioned it in their acceptance speeches. For me, a film lover, a fashion aficionado, a connoisseur of glamour and a feminist I found it empowering and exhilarating. But for some women on my social media feeds, the #TimesUp movement was diluted because they personally found some of the actresses black gowns to be, trashy, slutty and (at best), inappropriate. Another thread had women complaining about too much cleavage under boob and side boob. A meme that was reposted a few times on social media pictured Halle Berry, Eva Longoria and Margo Robbie in their black gowns. The text read, Dear Hollywood, its kind of hard to fight sexual harassment at the Golden Globes when youre dressed like hookers! One commenter weighed in, They show so much cleavage and then they complain about men LOOKING at them! What saddened me the most about these caustic critiques wasnt the use of words like sluts and hookers it was that all of them were from women. All of them. Incidentally, the actresses represented arent complaining about men looking at them theyre being vocal about sexual assault. Are we actually saying in 2018 that if we wear something sexy, we deserve to be assaulted? Another commenter even wrote, referring to an actress in a slinky black dress, We are our own worst enemies. But I interpret that statement differently shaming other women for their fashion choices is what turns us into enemies of each other. I love that in a fairly short period of time (reportedly two weeks before the Globes), Times Up made the call suggesting that women attending the awards wear all black in solidarity and that in response, each woman put her own personal stamp on what she thought they looked best in. Its still a black-tie event, its a sparkly awards show with a red carpet and bottles of champagne on the tables. If youre an awards show junkie like me, then you know that Halle Berry always shows up in something form-fitting and plunging that complements her fit 51-yearold body; 48-year-old Catherine Zeta Jones often appears on a red carpet in sheer lace, but this time it was black; if a very pregnant 42-year-old Eva Longoria wants to wear a deep V-neck, whats the problem? Frances McDormand wore a long-sleeved, high necked black dress thats Frances McDormands look, its what she obviously feels comfortable in. It brings up an interesting conversation in their solidarity, should the actresses have eschewed their signature styles? In fact, maybe they shouldnt have worn any make-up, or gotten their hair done or worn heels. Perhaps they all should have worn the same long sleeved, highnecked, loose-fitting dress. Maybe there shouldnt have been a red carpet or champagne begging the question that possibly there shouldnt have even been an awards show honoring artistry and talent at all. How far do we take our indignation over visible cleavage? The black-out at the Golden Globes marked that time is up. Women have a right to dress the way that makes them feel their best and their most strong without fearing physical assault by men or verbal shaming by fellow women. This, I believe, is the whole idea. Black is sexy, black is also elegant, and black is power. Dont let anyone take away your power to be who you are. m e e w n t stephanieDAVIS sdavis@floridaweekly.com HOLLYWOOD FOREIGN PRESS ASSOCIATIONLady Bird won best movie at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Their current building, a 17,000-square-foot former gymnasium at 1048 Costello Drive, is their third location after beginning in 2011 at a building behind the Wendys on U.S. 41. After spending a great deal of resources upgrading the Costello Drive building to suit their needs, Life Christians leadership team realized they were quickly outgrowing the property. Sundays became a madhouse for parking, even though the church shares parking with surrounding businesses that are closed during worship services. Though they werent actively searching for a new and bigger location, a Life Christian overseer came from Michigan last summer and preached one Sunday with an intriguing belief. I believe God will give you everything that you need to grow in Naples, Pastor James recalls the overseer saying. He said it flippantly and then left. But we thought, Wow, thatd be awesome to watch. Enter C3 Church, a non-denominational Christian congregation on a sprawling campus at 15300 Tamiami Trail N. with more than 46,000 square feet of building space. The 20-year-old congregation was in danger of loosing the property, however, due to mounting bills and not enough members to support a campus that size. When the three pastors met, Pastor James says, he wondered if they had been presented an opportunity to answer everyones prayers. He suggested a church swap. A what? he laughs as he remembers coining the term. I had never said the words before, so it was a shock even to me that it came out of my mouth. Intrigued, Pastor Neller asked Pastor James to present the idea of a church swap to the C3 Church board of directors. The two leadership teams agreed from the beginning to pay whatever the appraisal price of the properties was without any haggling. Because C3 Church had some leftover damage from Hurricane Irma (theres a sevenfigure insurance claim pending for damages) and Life Christian needs to build out most of the new campus to suit its needs, these costs were subtracted from the final purchase price with zero issues, according to Pastor James. He is adamant that being faith-based played a huge part in the church swap working out despite the vast disparities in values because of size and condition of the properties. Deals can go sideways very quickly because everyones out for themselves, he says But because were faith-based, we believe in things outside of ourselves. Anything we bring up that needs to be in the deal, the answer has always been yes. Could it be divine intervention? Theres never been a frowning face during this process, he says. The deal closed just weeks ago. Both congregations are sharing the Costello Drive campus until renovations are complete and Life Christian moves to the Tamiami Trail North campus. Every time (Pastor Neller and I) start or end a conversation, we look at each other and say, Look what God is doing? Pastor James said.

A28 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Livingston, 48. You do everything Livingston, 48. You do everything you can to protect your family, so why would you let them risk their lives over a text message? Our mission is to eliminate distracted driving and to convince future generations of drivers to put down their phones and make our roads a safer place for everyone. His impetus for the invention was being a father to a teenage driver (he has three older children as well). About four years ago, my wife and I were on a motorcycle and you get a much better vantage point from there, he said. I noticed how many people were doing it (texting) and my two youngest stepkids were just starting to drive and it worried me. His device is a cradle positioned in the glove compartment. To operate the car, the designated phone must be in the cradle. The car wont start otherwise, but the driver can still make calls through Bluetooth features. If the phone is taken out of the cradle when the car is being driven, an emergency message is sent to the parent. Thats exactly what happened when Mr. Livingstons stepdaughter, Lilly, began to drive one of her dads test vehicles. Originally, she was on board, really liked the idea, Mr. Livingston said. That was until she realized that she was going to have to use it. She wasnt very good at abiding by the rules for the first few days. But shes fine now. She understands the importance of it. Shell be the first one to tell you, Oh, you should have seen this guy texting all over the road today. She sees a lot more now that her hands are on the steering wheel and not texting because her phone is in the glove compartment. It took her two or three days before she stopped complaining about it or doing things she shouldnt be doing, like floating the phone off the dock. After a few days of that we threatened to take the vehicle away. There are a lot of apps and features that try to prevent texting and driving and all are easily bypassed by teens and those technically advanced, Mr. Livingston explained. This is the only system that solves the issue. The device sells for $399 through the website. That price doesnt include installation, which takes less than an hour by a certified mechanic. It has a lifetime warranty once its installed. While that price seems high, Mr. Livingston said potential buyers could be reminded that they pay $1,000 for smart phones these days. And, its hard to put a price on the safety of our children. We have an agreement with Verizon, so theres no cost to anybody for two years. After two years, theres a small annual fee. We dont make any money off it after its been sold. He says his is the only device thats been approved through the FCC. It works flawlessly, which is nice, he said. People cant believe it actually works and theyve tried everything. Mr. Livingston, who was born in Toronto but has lived in Florida for 11 years, says the device is not just for young drivers. Were finding from the market research now that it really does not matter what the age parameters are anymore, he said. We used to say 15-25, but we have had women in their 60s text and drive. More people are willing to admit they do it. Owner of Parallax Business and Management Consultant Inc., Mr. Livingston says he has been working on updating and upgrading a variety of technological devices for 20 years. He has not sought investors for the distracted driving device but is financing the project himself, Were pushing for national release by the end of this month (January), Mr. Livingston. It looks like its going to forward if we can get people to police themselves. Were going to the major networks, CBS and NBC, and we hope to have some spots through the Olympics. We are trying to negotiate to be one of the main sponsors for the new American Idol, but we havent closed that deal yet. National ads may be viewed at www. distracteddrivingdevice.com. DRIVINGFrom page 27 COURTESY PHOTOThe device resides in a cars glove box. It cradles a cell phone, and once the phone is in place, the driver is allowed to text and talk only through Bluetooth features. LIVINGSTON

A30 BUSINESS WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to the 1818 founding of a trading company in Amsterdam. In 1884 I started a grain trading business in Argentina, expanding to Brazil in 1905 and North America in 1918. Today Im a global agricultural giant based in White Plains, New York. I sport a market value of more than $9 billion and employ about 32,000 people. I buy, sell, store and transport oilseeds and grains; process oilseeds to make protein meal (for animal feed) and edible oil products; produce sugar and ethanol; mill wheat, corn and rice; and sell fertilizer. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition. THE MOTLEY FOOLTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest Investment The Motley Fool Take Name That Company Last weeks trivia answer Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o Florida Weekly, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Awesome Dividend GrowthDont let yourself assume that dividends are boring little payments that dont add up to much. Dividend investing is quite powerful. When you buy shares of healthy and growing dividend-paying companies, youre likely to receive payouts every year, regardless of what the economy is doing. Many blue-chip companies dividend yields (their annual dividend amounts divided by their current share prices) easily top the low banking interest rates available to savers today. Heres something investors rarely consider: Imagine you bought 10 shares of the Antisocial Media Co. (ticker: SCRAM) for $100 each, and it offers a respectable 3 percent dividend. With a $1,000 investment, thats an annual payout of $30. Thats not a huge sum, but healthy companies tend to increase their dividends regularly. A few years down the line, Antisocial Media may be trading at $200 per share. Imagine that its dividend yield is still 3 percent, as its dividend has been gradually raised to $6 per share. (Note that $6 is a 3 percent yield for anyone buying the stock at $200, but since you bought it at $100, to you its effectively a 6 percent yield on your initial investment.) Now imagine that many years later, your initial 10 shares have split twice and become 40 shares, each worth $225 now. Your initial $1,000 investment is now valued at $9,000. The dividend is now $6.75 per share for a yield thats still 3 percent, so your 40 shares deliver a whopping $270 per year. Youre now earning $270 for the year on a $1,000 investment. Thats an effective return of 27 percent per year (and growing) without even counting any stock-price appreciation. The yield on your initial investment has gone from 3 percent to 27 percent, because you just hung on to a growing company. Even if the stock price drops, youre still likely to get that 27 percent payout unless the company is in trouble. For a list of promising dividend-paying stocks weve recommended, test-drive our Motley Fool Income Investor newsletter for free via fool. com/services. Friends and Family No, ThanksFriends and family may make for a solid telephone plan, but investing advice? Not so much, at least in my experience. Provenge, wildcat oil, cancer research startups all these investments turned out to be big losers for me, and I made them based on advice from friends and family. I am not too smart, so it took some real pain to learn this. I dont buy anything now unless I do a lot of research first. J.R., Kerrville, TexasThe Fool Responds: Its always best to make investment decisions based on your own research, analysis and thinking. Friends and family may mean well, but much of the time they havent done much digging into whatever theyre recommending theyve just heard about it somewhere.Provenge, a drug to treat prostate cancer, was in the news for its ultra-high price tag, and its initial maker, a company called Dendreon, ended up filing for bankruptcy. Its assets were bought by Valeant Pharmaceuticals, which later sold them to a Chinese company. Wildcat oil companies and cancer research startups sound like classic penny stocks with exciting stories that lure naive investors with promises of oil discoveries and cancer cures around the corner. Keep reading and learning about investing and researching companies before you invest in them and your investment performance should improve. Perhaps buy some investing books for your friends and family, too. Under-the-Radar and PromisingIf youve ever picked up an iPhone, youve likely used some of Skyworks Solutions (Nasdaq: SWKS) technologies. Skyworks makes various semiconductors amplifiers, filters, front-end modules, etc. that help improve wireless signals and power management for some of the biggest tech companies. About 40 percent of its revenue was recently tied to Apple products. Skyworks is coming off a stellar quarter, when revenue jumped 18 percent year over year to $985 million, and earnings per share popped 15 percent. Its balance sheet is nearly pristine: It ended the year with a cash balance of $1.6 billion and no long-term debt. The company has been expanding its customer base and getting its technologies into more devices, diversifying its business. Its chips are now found in smart thermostats, home security systems, invehicle telematics systems, drones and smartwatches. Skyworks share price has surged more than 30 percent over the past year, but theres likely more growth ahead. With a recent forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 13, the stock is looking relatively inexpensive compared to the broad tech sector plus it offers a growing dividend that recently yielded 1.3 percent. (The Motley Fool owns shares and short January 2018 $105 calls of Skyworks Solutions. One Fool service has recommended Skyworks shares, while another has recommended short options. Remember, we are motley!) Nearly 20 major companies were integrated over time to form me, and their innovations and achievements include the Flying Wing, the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, transporting Charles Lindbergh across the Atlantic and carrying astronauts to the moons surface and back. Marilyn Monroe once worked on one of my production lines, and I supplied navigation and pointing aids for NASAs Mars Rovers. Today, with a market value recently near $53 billion, Im a premier global security company, specializing in autonomous systems, cyber, C4ISR, strike, and logistics and modernization offerings. I employ more than 60,000 people worldwide. Who am I? (Answer: Northrup Grumman) $300,000 per Share?!QI read that shares of Warren Buffetts company, Berkshire Hathaway, are priced around $300,000 apiece. Can that be right? How can most people invest in it? J.S., Santa Rosa, CaliforniaAYou read that correctly. The shares that traded for less than $20 apiece when Buffett took over the company in the early 1960s topped $300,000 in early December 2017. In his 50th anniversary letter to shareholders, Buffett noted a 1,826,163 percent gain in the market price of the companys shares in those 50 years. Thats an average annual gain of more than 21 percent! The stock price (recently a bit below $300,000) is indeed too high for most investors but thats only for the Class A shares. In 1996, Buffett introduced Class B shares, valued at 1/30th of Class A shares, which were much more affordable for average investors. (They initially traded near $1,000 apiece.) In 2010, when Class A shares were priced near $100,000 and Class B shares were around $3,000, Buffett split the Bs 50-for-1, bringing their price down to around $60. From there, they have grown to nearly $200, as of this writing. ***QWhat are audited financial statements? F.N., Sioux City, IowaAPublicly traded companies ones you can invest in on the stock market are required to report on their earnings and financial condition each quarter. They issue comprehensive 0-K reports once a year, along with their annual report. In the intervening quarters, they issue less substantial 0-Q reports. Ten-K reports detail the companys recent performance and discuss risks, among other things, and their financial statements are audited by accounting firms. Ten-Q reports, though, are not required to be audited. Want more information about stocks?

COURTESY PHOTOS505 mixed-use project takes shape downtown BY DON MANLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAn additional dash of luxury is coming to Old Naples in the form of the 505 Fifth Avenue South mixed-use project. In the heart of downtown at the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Fifth Street South, the three-story, $18 million development will blend 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space with four condominiums each on the upper floors. Residences range from $2.5 million for 2,330 square feet to $2.9 million for a 2,463-square-foot unit. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Jan. 11. Space should be ready for occupancy in early 2019. The developments listing agent, Michael Lawler of Premier Sothebys International Realty in Naples, predicts 505 Fifth Avenue South will possess a distinctive flair that resonates with prospective buyers. Its not just that the location is superb, but over and above that, architecturally, its going to be a unique project on the market because its so cutting edge, he said. Everything about it is just first-class all around.

But when they got there, they had no doubt it was the place they wanted to call home. For me, it was just like the first time I met Robin, Richard Kinley explained. I knew she was the one. After meeting with builders and looking at floorplans, we came back out to the lot that we were considering to sit and enjoy the sunset and that was it. We knew this was where we wanted to be. The Kinleys were the very first to contract for a new home at Babcock Ranch, and on January 4th they made history again as the very first residents of the solar-powered town. But they didnt have the town to themselves for long. James and Donna Aveck closed on their Homes by Towne home just over a week after the Kinleys moved in and a steady stream of closing and move-in dates will follow in the weeks ahead. Even during that first week, the Kinleys werent really alone. They were toasted by future neighbors at a welcome reception on their move-in day. Fellow homebuyers gathered again for breakfast on the Kinleys first morning at Babcock Ranch to celebrate another significant milestone for their new hometown the opening of Slaters Goods & Provisions, the market caf and general store located at Founders Square. We were the only people living here, and we already knew more people than we did after years in our Atlanta neighborhood, Kinley said. Before anyone else moved in, Robin was off to a quilting show with a new neighbor. For Babcock Ranch developer Syd Kitson, the budding relationships between neighbors are the building blocks of a real hometown. When I think about where I grew up, its the people who made it feel like home, Kitson said. We can build great buildings, great public spaces, outstanding schools but its the people who live here their shared experiences and traditions that will ultimately define what life at Babcock Ranch is all about. Early residents of Babcock Ranch dont have to rely on their imaginations to see what life in this innovative new town has to offer. Theyre settling into new homes in walking distance from a downtown district that is already bustling with daily activity. Residents can walk or bike to Founders Square to enjoy farmto-table dining at the lakeside Table & Tap restaurant or to check out equipment at Curry Creek Outfitters for outdoor adventures. The Hatchery provides collaborative workspace for innovative ventures to take root, upstairs from Square Scoops Coffee & Creamery. Slaters Goods & Provisions is a one-stop shop for staple items and locally sourced produce, as well as farm-to-table dining in a more casual setting. Slaters also offers healthy, pre-made meals and an impressive array of ingredients sure to inspire future residents to create their own gourmet fare at home. The completion of neighborhood amenities and the opening of the downtown district before the first residents arrived is just one of the multitude of ways the solar-powered town sets itself apart. Typically, developers start with homes and residents have to wait until a certain number of people move in before the promised amenities are constructed, Kitson said. At Babcock Ranch, weve delivered on the hometown experience and the lifestyle from day one. Many future residents already spend a lot of time at Babcock Ranch joining in activities, visiting the shops and restaurants, and watching their homes being built. Bethany and Jerry Hunt recently signed a contract with Homes by Towne. They said being able to live close to a great school for their two young children was a big attraction. Babcock Neighborhood School opened last August well ahead of the first residents for students in grades K-6. A larger K-8 school building to accommodate twice as many students will open next fall, and the high school is expected to open the following year. For the Avecks, young families like the Hunts are part of the attraction. We like that it is multigenerational, Donna Aveck said. Weve been surrounded by people who are all our age, and we are looking forward to events where you see children. Its really all about the lifestyle the opportunity for lifelong learning, the exercise, being in the environment with the trails and getting to know our neighbors. We are excited about being part of the history of Babcock Ranch. The history was on full display as future residents celebrated the recent opening of Slaters. Cowboys who work their herds from horseback on remote areas of the new towns acreage rode past as a reminder that this brand new town is already rich in history. With our first residents now starting to move in, 2018 will go down as the year that the vision for our sustainable new town came to life, Kitson said. Together, we are carrying forward the Babcock familys tradition of outstanding environmental stewardship.

B6 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYGolf experience attracting Seaglass homebuyersWith the award-winning Ronto Groups 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower within Bonita Bay on schedule for completion this summer, future residents are looking forward to enjoying the communitys golf experience. The combination of the towers alluring floor plan choices, various Bonita Bay Club membership opportunities, and Bonita Bays award-winning lifestyle that includes five championship golf courses, Seaglass is redefining the high-rise living experience. The Bonita Bay Clubs golf operation is legendary. A two-story, 15,000 squarefoot facility houses the golf pro shop, tournament offices, and merchandise offices, as well as underground storage for 260 carts and 2,600 golf bags. Director of Golf E.J. McDonnell, PGA oversees a staff that includes 25 PGA Professionals. Ten of the PGA Professionals and seven Fitness Professionals are Titleist Performance Institute Certified, creating one of the largest programs in the country. An instructional program includes private and group lessons, golf schools, and clinics on three dedicated practice areas. Members have access to the latest equipment and benefit from professional club-fitting services. One of the largest private club-repair facilities in the country further contributes to the Tour Experience enjoyed by the members. The three on-property Bonita Bay West courses were designed by Arthur Hills to preserve and enhance the natural features of the land. The courses achieved Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary status in 1995. A healthy 6,910 yards from the back tees, the Bay Island course is considered the most challenging of the Clubs courses. Water hazards, sand traps, and thick stands of oak and cypress await errant shots on a course that plays to all four points of the compass. Golfers must be both long and accurate off the tee to score well. Elevated greens present a significant challenge to approach shots, and recovering from missed shots demands an accurate short game. The Creekside course is a favorite of the Bonita Bay Clubs members. A challenging 6,632 yards from the back tees, Creekside features broad fairways and limited carries while changes in the land elevations create a subtle feeling of rolling hills. Bunkering and moguls add to the challenge. Grass-face bunkers protect the greens that are undulating and fast. Extra room off many of the tees provides an opportunity to aggressively attack a number of the holes. The 6,483-yard Marsh golf course winds its way through wetland areas with beautiful oaks and palmettos. The wetlands and natural vegetation provide both landscaping and water hazards. While challenging, the setting provides golfers with a sense of peace during their round. Many of the holes are more about target golf than the layouts at Bonita Bays other four courses and require golfers to use every club in their bag. Two Tom Fazio designed courses at Bonita Bay East provide a pure golf experience on over 1,000 acres that includes preserved wetlands but no residential development. It was the first private 36-hole club in the world to achieve certification through the Audubon Internationals Signature Program and has been designated as a Certified Signature Sanctuary since 1998. A 8,200 square feet clubhouse is nestled among slash pines and Sabal palms and features a golf shop, main dining room, mixed grill room, bar, and locker areas. The Bonita Bay East Cypress course is considered one of the best tournament sites in Southwest Florida. The front nine is forgiving off the tee, but the greens are protected by large deep bunkers. Once on the inward nine, the holes are separated by stands of cypress trees and wetlands. A challenging 7,059 yards from the back tee, the course features large undulating greens that are some of the fastest in the area. The 6,813-yard Sabal course is yet another Bonita Bay course that brings golfers and nature together. With five par fives and five par threes, the course presents an excellent variety of challenges. Alligators, wild turkeys, deer, and bald eagles are often seen near the massive lake that comes into play on holes 9 through 12. The green complexes are large and feature high green speeds, but allow room for approach shots. Seaglass offers fully-completed, ready-for-occupancy residences with designerselected premium finishes. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Seaglass will showcase the open living environments that luxury homebuyers prefer. The elegant residences will be accessed by private elevator foyers and feature spacious great rooms, centrally located kitchens, and two or three outdoor terraces per residence, one of which will include a gas grill. The terraces and extensive use of glass throughout the residences will provide stunning views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. A choice selection of tower residences remains available at Seaglass. Three luxurious great room floor plans ranging from 3,353 to 3,946 total square feet are priced from the low $1 millions. The spacious tower residences will include dual private elevator grand foyers, large island kitchens, three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, or three bedrooms plus a den or fourth bedroom and three-and-a-half baths, walk-in closets in the owners suite, and sliders opening to multiple outdoor spaces that include a gas grill. Ten-foot ceiling heights are included per plan. Three furnished tower residence models are open for viewing with a sales associate by appointment only.

B8 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMatchless finishes extend the exceptional design at AQUA at Pelican IsleWelcome to a new level of luxury at AQUA at Pelican Isle. The definition of luxury homes has changed over the past 20 years. No longer is luxury synonymous with huge when it comes to homes. Many of todays luxury buyers are choosing amenities over square footage. They feel they dont necessarily need the volume in a house. Instead, they want the actual luxury and a house that is customized to their lifestyle, reports Ron Sinks, Director of Sales at AQUA, the marina front boutique tower condominium community in Naples. Buyers dont want to have a home with large portions left largely unused, believes Sink. They want to put their money into things they actually use on a daily basis, instead. Additionally they are trying not to leave as much of an imprint on the environment. Rather than focusing on size, many of todays luxury buyers look for highend finishes such as luxury baths with full-tile showers; hardwood flooring; high-end appliances, cabinetry and tile; quartz countertops; upgraded interior trim packages and even upgraded exterior details, Mr. SInk says. Some of the finishes extending the exception design at AQUA include: Chefs kitchens with integrated Miele appliances, granite waterfall countertops and full height backsplashes Glass-encased showers with wall mounted Kohler hand shower set blend beauty and function Efficient and expansive custom designed walk-in closes in each master bedroom Floor-to-ceiling large-format tile wraps the bathroom in style Private balcony and expansive windows for sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico and Naples skylines Aqua opened its second 32-unit tower in May 2017. Only five residences, including a palatial penthouse and two furnished models open daily for viewing, remain available for sale. Prices range from $1.995 million to $4.85 million. The penthouse suite offers 6,500 square feet interior living area, and features a grand terrace and private balconies with an additional 3,000 square feet of outdoor living area spanning across the entire residence maximizing both sunrise and sunset views. Those seeking a more refined lifestyleone where sophistication, luxury and the water interact on a daily basis should act now on the few remaining residences at AQUAs Tower II and discover why it is Paradise Coasts chosen address.

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMy first golf experience at MediterraIve been continuing my search for a new home located in a community where I can live life the way that I choose to live it. After several visits to London Bay Homes Mediterra community on Livingston Parkway in North Naples, Ive decided its the perfect place for me. The setting is beautiful, and it has every amenity on my checklist, including two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses and a private 10,000 squarefoot beach club on Little Hickory Island. Ive been really intrigued by the golf courses. Several friends told me the golf experience at Mediterra is legendary and an important piece of the communitys social fabric. Ive always wanted to learn how to play the game and to enjoy the fun that goes along with it. I spoke with my Sales Executive, Lisa, about it and she raved about the quality of instruction and how inexperienced golfers like me are welcomed. On top of that, because Ill be buying a home built by London Bay, Ill be eligible to get a full golf membership right away rather than being placed on the membership waiting list as a Limited Golf Member. Thats a huge benefit! Membership opportunities are limited to a total of just 450 full golf members. Lisa and I went to the golf pro shop and she introduced me to Rob Anderson, the director of golf, and his team. I immediately felt comfortable and at home. Rob asked me about my golf experience. When I told him I was a beginner, he smiled and told me about The Clubs get golf ready programs for ladies on Monday afternoons from 2:30 until 3:15. The sessions focus on the fundamentals of the game, getting comfortable with coming to the golf course, visiting the pro shop and locker room, and getting on the carts and going to the driving range. It all sounded perfect to me. New players typically make a connection with someone that is staffing these clinics and that generally develops into some individual instruction. Rob invited me to attend one of the sessions and I immediately took him up on the offer! When I went to the get golf ready session, I met Christine Maier, an aspiring tour professional who is at Mediterra during winter season. We hit it off right away! I asked her if she would give me lessons and she immediately agreed. After working with her at the Clubs Golf Learning Center that offers the latest in swing analysis technology, I was ready to go out on the courses. I signed up to play in one of the ladies 9-hole events the Club holds on Wednesday afternoons. These are fun, social events. They dont play individual games. They play a team scramble, fun stuff like that. Thats where people like me can make new friends and get comfortable with the golf program. Once I got out on the golf courses, I was amazed by their sheer beauty. They weave their way along Mediterras sparkling lakes, wetlands, and nature preserves. Each of the courses presents distinctive design characteristics and unique challenges for golfers of every skill level, including novices like me. The Club at Mediterra has been certified as the worlds first 36-hole Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary. Fazio is apparently known as the master of environmentally-sensitive golf course designs. It was obvious the Fazio Design Team took every precaution to ensure the courses not only supported, but nurtured the surrounding environment. I liked that! The other thing I liked is that I didnt feel overwhelmed. Both courses were designed with golfers of all skill levels and feature nine tee options. While both courses can offer a stern challenge depending on tee selection, beginner golfers appreciate that neither course has a hole with a forced carry over a water hazard. I played in a couple of the Wednesday afternoon events and got to know a little bit about both courses. The North Course blends naturally with the topography with subtle doglegs that angle away from the line of play. I was especially captivated by the 7th and 17th holes. The 7th hole is a hole unto itself with a natural tree line, a beautiful water feature, and not a home in sight. The setting has a northern feeling and conjures a sense of being removed from the day-to-day. The 17th hole is a gentle boomerang par 5 with a natural setting that includes a unique bent leaning pine tree that provides an appealing memory point. There are no home intrusions on the 17th hole. The South Course was a real challenge with its elevated greens, fast chipping areas, and strategically placed bunkers with beautiful flashing. The signature of the South Course is a corridor that showcases views of holes 11 through 14. The 11th hole is a beautiful straight par 4. On the horizon, golfers also see the 12th tee, the 13th green, and the 14th hole in the distance. The setting offers striking sunset views. Like the North Course, the South Course features beautiful water features. Im looking forward to playing lots of golf at Mediterra and to making new friends with my fellow golfers. Im going to check out the Clubs private, members-only beach club next. Stay tuned! Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road.

B16 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA new Naples romance begins with London Bay Naples magic. Our good friends have fallen in love with Naples. It only took a day or two right about the time we enjoyed a pictureperfect afternoon at the beach while the temperatures in our hometown up north hovered around 30 degrees. Theyre enamored by the citys small-town charm, the beautiful Gulf of Mexico beaches and all the things to do here during the winter. Like biking and jogging or golf. Yesterday, we introduced them to the custom estate homes created by London Bay Homes and Romanza Interior Design as part of the Naples Collection of fully furnished models and on-your-lot homesites from Park Shore to Port Royal. They were awed by the photos my husband and I took while touring London Bays two grand Gordon Drive estates right on Cutlass Cove in Port Royal. But we wanted them to experience it for themselves so we visited the Chelston model near Fifth Avenue South. They loved the level of luxury and attention to detail by London Bay and Romanzas fabulous design, furniture and finish selections, and use of color. Toby Cloutier, our London Bay sales executive, also shared architecture and interior design plans for the Watlington, a new two-story four-bedroom model London Bay is building at 41 Fifth Street South in Naples. It will have 4,182 square feet, a private backyard with a pool, spa and firepit, a study and a butlers bar. The architecture really appeals to my friend whos an artist. She appreciated the coastal style. Its old Florida but with an updated contemporary aesthetic, she pointed out. The Watlington has an open-concept floor plan creating a large flowing space between great room, kitchen and a dining room. Our friends know after visiting the Chelston, the finishes and furnishings will be incredible. They love the idea of having a second-floor bonus room, which they could use as a yoga studio or home gym. The Watlingtons location five blocks from the beach, five blocks to Fifth Avenue South in an established neighborhood is perfect for them. Theyre avid joggers and cyclists and the surrounding streets are quiet. The pool area is like a resort. Theres an outdoor living area under roof with a fireplace and full outdoor kitchen to enjoy evening candlelight dinners under the twinkling stars. The pool has a really uninque sunken spa and a stone wall with three waterfalls. We loved the shallow bench area within the pool that has four water loungers and three tables convenient for setting down my wine glass while taking a dip. All you need is a personal bartender to bring you a Renovateur, I joked, referring to the cocktails we enjoyed last night at The French Brasserie Rustique on nearby Fifth Avenue South, Naples lovely downtown area. And a chef who can prepare burgundy snails, she sighed. Im still dreaming about that homemade puff pastry. And spending the winter here in Naples, her husband chimed in. I could definitely get used to this. To schedule a visit and learn more about London Bay Homes exclusive downtown Naples opportunities, call Toby Cloutier at 239-280-7367 or visit LondonBay.com.

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.

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.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSDebut novel illuminates the boundaries of community, connectedness and identity The Other Side of Everything by Lauren Doyle Owens. Touchstone, 272 pages. Hardcover, $25.Lauren Doyle Owens, who lives in the Fort Lauderdale area and has set her first novel there, is someone to watch. Her stunning literary murder mystery debut is at once a nailbiter and a brilliantly nuanced evocation of how communities work and dont work. How proximity to others does not create a neighborhood, how aging in place can foster a misery of isolation as contemporaries pass away and new neighbors remain strangers. Ms. Owens builds her novel around three major characters whose situations and perspectives rotate through the novel. Bernard White, about to turn 80, has lived in the suburban community of Seven Springs for decades and witnessed its socio-economic changes. Since his wifes death, he has become increasingly withdrawn. When he sees smoke rising from his neighbors house, he calls 911 and awaits the firemen, police and paramedics. The fire seems to have covered a murder. But why Adel? Who really knew her, anyway? Bernard feels helpless in the situation, somehow responsible for what happened. The tragedy wakes up the neighborhood, leading Bernard to begin a tentative reengagement. Amy Unger, a cancer survivor, spots the fire on her way home. Once a promising artist, she thought briefly of photographing or sketching the scene. But she is not yet ready. She is still cowed by her husbands disdain for her avocation. The marriage has gone cold, and Petes business trips are far too frequent and extended. Suffering from her mother having abandoned the family, 15-year-old Maddie Lowe attempts to take care of her brother and works in a restaurant near school and home. She also attempts friendship with Charlie, a homeless man who comes into the restaurant regularly. Her need for respectful attention is met in part by a neighborhood college student whose advances flatter her. However, her sexual awakening has a raw edge to it. A child being pushed into adulthood way to fast, Maddie meets her challenges with a surprising degree of effectiveness. Murders of elderly women in the neighborhood continue. These are not random. The killer has an agenda. Whats his motive? Is he an outsider or someone in their midst? The cluster of murders brings the neighbors together. The older residents, self-named the originals, rediscover old, faded friendships. As they catch up with each others lives, they form a kind of buddy system that has expected yet energizing consequences. For Bernard, a close friendship with an attractive woman develops, as do memories of past infidelity. Amys artistic creativity is reborn and released in a series of paintings about the murders. She paints with confidence, fulfilling her deepest needs. While the police suspect Maddies boyfriend could be the murderer, she must deal with her unexpected pregnancy. She struggles to break the habit of piercing her thighs as a mechanism to relieve tension. The outer pains masked the inner ones. Though this is not a particularly long novel, it has so much density of textured detail and psychological probing that it covers much more and leaves readers absorbed in a much more profound vicarious experience than novels twice its length. Through these three focal characters, whose lives hardly tough one another, Ms. Owens builds a vibrantly realized world spreading across three generations. She traces the ebbs and flows of individual and collective destinies, her narrative charged by a lyricism that is constantly evocative and revealing. A large cast of well-drawn supporting characters reinforces the themes of connectedness and renewal. This is a remarkable debut by a distinctive talent of great promise. Originally from Maryland, Ms. Owens is a graduate of Florida International Universitys MFA program. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. h a i m h s philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com OWENS d, A s h m sd a h n fr ie nd c ou ld b e th e M a i z i n ge t r a n vi d ti v n a b y co n an d A w e l in g fo r c con r e n e T a bl e tinc t pr om MARCO ISLANDNOW RE-OPEN FOR BUSINESSCall today to schedule your annual skin exam!239-642-3337RiverchaseDermatology.comThank you for your patience while we were repairing hurricane damage to our Marco Island Location.

Heres whats coming up: 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24, at Temple Shalom: Meet Pam Jenoff (The Orphans Tale) and Gavriel Savit (Anna and the Swallow Man). Ms. Jenoffs inventive novel, based on true stories, tells of a German circus that becomes the home and refuge of two young women. Ms. Savit imagines Krakow in 1939, when young Anna, her father taken by the Nazis, meets a mysterious, somewhat magical fellow whom she follows through the most dangerous situations. 1 p.m. Monday, Jan. 29, at the Hilton Naples: Sitcom writer Susan Silver talks about Hot Pants in Hollywood: Sex, Secrets & Sitcoms. The afternoon also includes Joan Rivers biographer, Leslie Bennetts (Last Girl Before Freeway). 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14, at Temple Shalom: Familyfocused memoir is the theme. Playwright and film producer Peter Gethers My Mothers Kitchen tells the heartwarming story of his determination to bring his aging mothers friends and loved ones to the table one last time for a feast featuring her favorite dishes. In Wherever You Go, There They Are, actress Annabelle Gurwitch (Seinfeld, Murphy Brown and Dexter) describes the family she tried to escape and the ones she joined by accident or on purpose, including her southern ancestors, the sisterhood and an adult summer camp for vegans. 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26, at the Naples Conference Center: Three authors discuss their new works and their careers: Jane Healey (The Saturday Evening Girls Club), Sana Krasikov (The Patriots) and Ellen Umansky (The Fortunate Ones). 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, at Temple Shalom: Its all about love and relationships with Marilyn Simon Rothstein (Lift and Separate) and Renee Rosen (Windy City Blues). Ms. Rothstein creates Marcy, a Jewish mother of three grown children, whose husband of 33 years leaves her for a fitting model he met at his brassiere empire. Set in 1950s and s Chicago, Ms. Rosens novel tells of the forbidden romance between a young Jewish Polish immigrant and a black blues guitarist from the South. 1 p.m. Friday, March 16, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples: Five-time Emmy Award-winner Alan Zweibel is a writer for Saturday Night Live and Curb Your Enthusiasm. His book The Other Shulman won the Thurber Prize for American Humor in 2006. His latest project is the Passover Haggadah parody For This We Left Egypt?, co-written with Dave Barry and Adam Mansbach. 2:30 p.m. Monday, April 9, at Beth Tikvah synagogue: As a character in her own book, Abigail Pogrebin (My Jewish Year) is presented as a somewhat rebellious family member who feels her Jewish life has not been as rich as it might have been. So she embarks on an entire year of research, observance and writing about every ritual, fast and festival in one Jewish year.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYso many people who play with us, and the family aspect, that collaboration, is so important. So thats what popped into his head when he was trying to name the band: The Family Crest. It just fit. The funny thing is, we dont have a crest, he admits. And hes not out searching for someone to create one for them, either. The band will headline WGCU Public Medias Twisted Strings concert on Saturday, Jan. 27, at Six Bends Harley-Davidsons Top Rocker Field. The event, a fundraiser for WGCU, opens its gates at 4 p.m. Performing as guests arrive will be Southwest Floridas Hot Butter ed Nuggets, who play everything from Louis Armstrong to Tom Waits to the Ink Spots. Local group Lauras Auras, which has been described as half Leonard Bernstein, half Lynyrd Skynyrd, open at 5 p.m. It will be followed at 6:30 p.m. by Simply Three (Glen McDaniel, Nick Villalobos and Zack Clark), a crossover string trio whose repertory includes Puccini, Gershwin, Adele, Coldplay and Michael Jackson. The Family Crest, headlining the event, takes the stage at 8:15 p.m. The concert highlights classical instruments played in a decidedly nonclassical way, blending jazz, blues, rock, soul, hip-hop and world music. Mr. McCormick is not only excited about performing at Twisted Strings, but being an audience member, too. Im stoked to be able to see all these groups playing as well, says the native Californian. Theres a lot of classical crossover going on at the show. I love being put in context with groups like this. I love unique music, orchestral music. The Family Crest includes a violinist, a cellist, a flutist and a trombone player. Its been called an orchestral indie rock band and some say it plays baroque pop. Baroque pop. I love that, but a lot of people dont know what that refers to, says Mr. McCormick. It just sounds cool to a lot of people. But orchestral rock really describes very simply a lot of the elements of our sound. If pressed to describe his bands music, hed say its eclectic, with a lot of different genres going on. Theyre often compared to Arcade Fire and Beirut, he says. People generally dont go to a rock show and see a flute, or a cello and violin, or a trombone, he says. He loves watching the expressions on audiences faces when they hear those instruments, or when cellist Charly Akert does a solo on Beneath the Brine. Theyre not used to seeing an instrument like that, he says. He remembers the first time he saw Cursive, a band from Omaha, Neb., perform. They had a cellist, Greta. I remember being floored, he says. It was something I wasnt used to seeing onstage. It makes it kind of an interesting show, and off the bat, I was moved by them. Its just fun to see the (same) reaction on the faces of our audiences, knowing that that was my reaction when I saw an orchestral instrument in a rock band.Tiny Desk, big soundThe Family Crest performed at the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in 2012. The band was named Favorite New Artist by NPR Music in 2014. And the group performed a Tiny Desk Concert at NPRs offices that same year. Its exactly what it looks like: youre in an office and youre (performing) behind a small desk. He recalls hed been so sick the day before, he couldnt even speak. Theyd had to cancel a concert in Philadelphia. But Bob Boilen, host and creator of the Tiny Desk Concert series, was reassuring. (I felt that I was) in a safe place, Mr. McCormick says. I love those people, because thats what performers need. You can see how much those people care about music Thats what makes NPR Music so amazing, the whole staff is enthusiastic and excited about new music. The Family Crest has an intriguing mixture of sound, mixing jazz, pop, folk, rock and classical. And the sound is constantly evolving. Its new album, The War Act I, slated for release on Feb. 23, has some Middle Easternsounding songs. One of the songs started off having a spaghetti western, Quentin Tarantino kind of vibe, he says. I realized how similar the Native American (sounds) were similar to Middle Eastern. It breaks down all these different styles; you hear all the influences from all these different places. It makes us more human. Were not as separated as we think we are. Exploring music in that way is really fun; we see how it connects us.Expanding familyIn addition to Mr. McCormick, The Family Crest consists of co-founder John Seeterlin (bass), Charlie Giesige (drums and percussion), Laura Bergman (flute, percussion and vocals), George Mousa S amaan (trombone), Owen Sutter (violin) and Mr. Akert on cello. Mr. McCormick originally studied opera, but left the conservatory he was attending and moved to San Francisco. He and Mr. Seeterlin were in another band and Mr. McCormick was the sole writer for the group. But he was growing increasingly unhappy. My mindset was, I was making very commercial stuff that didnt hold a lot of personal weight, he says. I was planning on leaving to do something else, I didnt know what, and I wanted to have a project that in the future I could look back on and say, Thats the best thing that I made. I took 10 years out of my life, because I made this thing. And it turned into its own thing. He reached out to other musicians, using Craigslist and fliers and talking to friends of friends. We just wanted to collaborate with a bunch of people, he says, and in doing so, they wound up having an extended family of musicians. We thought wed have five people, but there are about a hundred on the first record, French horn players and tuba players and flute, all these things Id never written for. Having this open door for musicians led me to write for different instruments that I didnt expect. Whenever hes writing for a new instrument, such as a bassoon, for example, hell ask the musician everything he can think of about the instrument. Specifically, Ill ask how a bassoon player likes to play the instrument, he says. Not what it can do, but what it should do. He likens it to the difference between being a given a piece thats out of his range but do-able, and singing something in his wheelhouse as a tenor where he can have fun with it. Thats been my goal, to learn as much as I can about (each instrument.) Its a great way to learn how to compose, he says. Thats how it became orchestral all these things I was learning to write. There are now hundreds of people who have played with The Family Crest, either in concert, on its records, or on its music videos. Its a lot of fun for us especially, the idea of allowing collaborations on stage, he says. I grew up studying a lot of jazz. And at a lot of jazz shows, because of the inclusion of improvisation, and people sitting in, youre left (with the feeling that) you could see the same band (perform again and again) and see a different act each time. Its unique and interesting for us, and for audiences too. If youre sitting in with somebody new, theres this energy you cant replicate. Theres a lot of unexpected things going on. Its really fun making music with people. Despite all the people who have played with The Family Crest, theres still a long list of musicians hed love to collaborate with. A partial list: Paul McCartney, Moon Hooch, Chance the Rapper, Rufus Wainwright, Kamasi Washington, The Decemberists. Basically, everyone in my iPhone, he says. I want to collaborate with everybody.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYAdults behaving badly: Marital discord delights at Florida RepBritish farce! It can be so difficult for us Yanks to get it right: the tone, the attitude, the inflections, the timing. In lesser productions, the lines fall flatter than a steamrolled souffl and the shows merely a series of missed opportunities. But How the Other Half Loves at Florida Repertory Theatre shows us exactly how it should be done. With director Mark Shanahan and a sextet of highly skilled actors, this production is a master class in how to execute this type of comedy. Its more difficult than it looks, this breezy casualness and split-second timing. Mr. Shanahan knows comedy, and it shows. (He has previously directed Around the World in 80 Days and The Hound of the Baskervilles at Florida Rep.) And playwright Alan Ayckbourn is known for these kind of plays; he also wrote Absurd Person Singular, Bedroom Farce and The Norman Conquests, to name just a few of his more than 80 plays. Hes the king of absurdity, writing scenes where people speak at cross-purposes with each other, each one having a conversation about something totally different. Misunderstandings grow exponentially. How the Other Half Loves presents us with three couples, each at a different stage in their marriage. Theres Frank (Paxton Whitehead) and Fiona (Carrie Lund), long married, well established and well off. But their marriage is a little frosty. Then theres Bob (Brendan Powers) and Teresa (Kate Hampton), who are working class. (Bob works for Frank.) Theyve been married a while and the romance has evaporated. They have a young son, and Teresa hates being left in the house with him all day. She also hates Bobs neglect and high-handed ways. What Teresa doesnt know is that her husband is having an affair or a fling with Fiona. But she does suspect somethings up. Both Bob and Fiona returned home very late after a tryst, and now their spouses are demanding to know where they were.To cover his tracks, Bob tells his wife he was with William (Jason Parrish), a man at work, who believes his wife Mary (Faith Sandberg) is having an affair. And when pressed for a reason for being out so late, Fiona, inspired by Bobs lie, tells her husband she was comforting Mary, who believes her husbands having an affair.William and Mary the Featherstones are the fledgling couple, not many years into their marriage and still finding their way. They are completely innocent and have no idea theyve been used as scapegoats by the adulterous pair whose respective spouses erroneously believe that they are having affairs with other people. Hope youve followed that. It just gets increasingly more complex as the couples get together and try to help each other, only to make things worse. As in any farce, the first act sets up the premise and the second act is one long, extended punch line, or a series of punch lines, as the set-ups come to their natural and rib-tickling conclusions. Tony-nominated Broadway and screen actor Paxton Whitehead is superb as Frank. Perpetually befuddled and living in his own personal fog, he is Mr. Magoo-ish, without being a caricature. Ms. Lund as his long-suffering wife is a little haughty and a little naughty. She looks after her husband as if he were a toddler. Mr. Powers plays Bob as light and breezy, without a care. Its 1969, and he still expects his wife to wait on him hand and foot. Ms. Hampton, as his wife, does a slow burn, until she finally explodes. Out of the three couples, this one provides the most fireworks. Poor William and Mary are put upon for much of the play, not comprehending why everyones acting so strangely around them. Mr. Parrishs William is trying to impress his boss, yet ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time, due to no fault of his own. Mr. Parrish is a skilled comic actor, and his characters increasing bewilderment while still trying to please those around him is performed with ease. And Ms. Sandbergs Mary is just too fun to watch. This is the actors debut at Florida Rep, and what a find she is. Her Mary is mousy, nail-bitingly anxious, uncertain how to behave. She has some great moments of physical comedy with her purse in one scene and with a vacuum cleaner in another. As she ducks her head and looks as though she longs to hide behind some large piece of furniture, there is something oddly compelling and even endearing about her, despite her self-doubt and mousiness. The men are oblivious, their wives at least two or three steps ahead of them. But that doesnt stop the men from believing that theyre in charge. The genius of this play besides the way Mr. Ayckbourn makes all these misunderstandings mount up and dovetail so perfectly is that the action in two households takes place simultaneously onstage in the same space. So youll see Frank and Fiona having a conversation while Bob and Teresa are also speaking with each other. In fact, the two women set the dining room table for their guests, William and Mary, at the same time, performing a nice ballet as they circle around the same table in the same space. Ray Rechts clever set conveys this sense of two households in the same space, with alternating dcor. We have Bob and Teresas blue and white wallpaper and blue curtains alternating with Frank and Fionas tasteful red and gold wallpaper and cream wainscoting. The sofa is part Frank and Fionas (red) and part Bob and Teresas (blue.) Were given two front doors (Frank and Fionas unseen, just a pair of double doors leading to their foyer) and even two chandeliers over the dining room table, which is encircled by red chairs (for Frank and Fiona) and blue chairs (for Bob and Teresa.) A highlight of the play is seeing William and Mary, invited to both couples homes for dinner on consecutive nights, sitting at the table with Frank and Fiona and Bob and Teresa, switching from one dinner to the next and back again, with exquisite perfect timing. Im not sure why its so entertaining to watch other peoples marriages crash and burn onstage; perhaps because its not our own? How the Other Half Loves more than exceeded my expectations, serving up smart, intelligent humor that made me giddy with laughter. With this production, Florida Rep gets it right in every way possible.

The winery is named Mollydooker, which is Australian slang for a left-handed person. The couples bold red wines garner outstanding ratings from critics all over the world. Their Carnival of Love Shiraz was Wine Spectator Number 2 Wine of the Year in 2016, and many of their other brands have received outstanding ratings. Recently, however, a break-up between the two has left Sarah Marquis as the sole owner of the winery, and the new face of the brand. Since the beginning, Sparky Marquis, personable and outgoing, had served as the brand ambassador. Now its Sarah Marquis turn, and its apparent shes up to the task. She is confident in her ability to guide the winery and the brands into the future. Were absolutely going to maintain our unique style, she said during a conversation at the New York Wine Experience in October. The wines intensity on the palate is very important. She and her winemaking team measure intensity by what they uniquely call fruit weight, a sensory term that embodies the velvety sensation of the wine on the palate, and its concentration. She plans to continue and build on the brands somewhat irreverent approach to the way their wines are named and handled. Names of the wines include Barefoot Boy, Velvet Glove, C arnival of Love and Enchanted Path. The couple also created the Mollydooker Shake as a way to make wine open up and breathe. Most of us would carefully uncork our bottles and pour the wine gently into a decanter, being careful not to agitate it or bruise the delicate liquid. Not these people. At a lunch a few years ago, Sparky Marquis opened a bottle of Carnival of L ove, poured about three ounces into a glass, replaced the cap and gave the bottle a vigorous and punishing shake. He poured another glass, and we tasted the unshaken wine next to the one that had been mistreated. Night and day. The shaken wine was much more open, fruity and accessible. Sarah Marquis intends to carry on that tradition. In June, Mollydooker at Sea, a seven-night Caribbean cruise, will include intimate tastings, blending classes and wine lunches and dinners. For information on the cruise, email alink@cruiseshipcenters.com. While some Mollydooker wines, such as the highly-rated Velvet Glove, run into the $150 range, the big, bold Carnival of Love and Enchanted Path Shirazes can be found for around $60, and are worth every nickel. Fortunately, the winery produces several quite pleasing wines for daily enjoyment, such as Two Left Feet red blend, The Maitre D Merlot and The Boxer Shiraz. All are available for well under $25 each. Meanwhile, enjoy our latest discoveries. Vietti Roero Arneis 2016 ($20) Arneis is a seldom seen white wine that wed like to get more of. All but forgotten until late in the 20th century, the quality and reputation have both come a long way in recent years. The word arneis, many believe, is a variation of anise, because this grape often has hints of licorice. We didnt detect that dimension in this sample from Italys Roero region, but enjoyed the citrus and yellow fruit flavors, along with peach, guava and mango. Theres zippy acidity that would pair well with seafood and shellfish. WW 86. Amici Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2015 ($25) This 100 percent Chardonnay is a great wine to enjoy on its own because of the pronounced oak and citrus aromas and flavors. Theres tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, mango, and even coconut. Some of the panel members were reminded of pia colada. Wellbalanced and lots of fun. WW 91. Ask the Wine WhispererQ: What can I do about side effects, like headaches, I feel from the sulfites and histamines in wine? Is there such a thing as wine that doesnt contain those ingredients? Is there any way to remove them from wine? Gina L., Fort LauderdaleA: Unfortunately for some, histamines occur in wine as a natural by-product of fermentation. Not many people react negatively to them, but some do. And, while only about 1 percent of the population is actually allergic to sulfites, some people have a troublesome reaction. I have just found out about a device that actually removes sulfites and histamines from wine, and am in the process of researching it and verifying that it actually works. If it does, I will report on it in this column. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club.

Now, its true that many of the SBs from that part of the world are a bit predictable and similar in their flavor profile, but theres still plenty of variety in the various producers and regions. Lets go back a bit. Ive written in the past that people who bec ome passionate about wine (maybe not to the point where they become wine writers and educators, but) have had an epiphany somewhere along the way. Someone pours you a glass of something, you taste it, and say, Holy moley, I never knew anything could taste like that. You are transformed and pretty much lost forever. For my wife Debi and I, it was a glass of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand, back in 1995. Life changing, and Im serious about that. However, when I looked back over my previous columns, I was shocked shocked, to discover that I had never written about this particular varietal. Lets correct that omission right now. First, the Sauvignon Blanc grape is pretty much native to the Loire Valley in France, and grown at the eastern end of the river, primarily around the villages of Pouilly and Sancerre. Its made in many styles. Visit one winery, and all the wine is resting in oak barrels. Go to the winery across the street, and theres not a stick of wood anywhere; everything is stainless steel. Typically, characteristics of this refreshing white wine include grapefruit, pineapple, hay, maybe some lychee and gooseberry, and often a whiff of what we politely call pipi du chat. As strange as that may sound, the slight aroma of what Scruffy does in the litterbox is very much part of the aroma profile of many Sauvignon Blancs. To be a bit less coarse about it, most critics refer to that particular aroma as boxwood. Strangely enough, it works.Nevertheless, this is a wine that pairs incredibly well with a wide range of dishes, especially if they involve seafood. I have formulated what I call the lemon law. If you can put lemon on it, you can drink Sauvignon Blanc with it. This is especially true of shellfish, and even more so during the current stone crab season. If you want a treat, just buy a few pounds of claws and wash them down with a bottle of New Zealands finest. The flavors of the New Zealand wines are very much up front and, well, pretty obvious. The notes of grapefruit, pineapple and citrus mentioned above are unmistakable, and hit you as soon as you put your nose in the glass. Not necessarily a bad thing. My favorite New Zealand producers are Cloudy Bay (of course), Villa Maria, Nobilo, Oyster Bay and Kim Crawford. The Cloudy Bay runs around $35 a bottle, but the other brands are more economical. Meanwhile, enjoy some of our latest selections. Priest Ranch Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2016 ($22) While this Sauvignon Blanc is a product of Napa Valley, it follows the characteristic (and delicious) flavor profile of those that hail from New Zealand. There is a pronounced aroma of boxwood on the nose. Peach schnapps, tutti-frutti and pineapple follow along on the palate. As with many wines made from this varietal, enjoy it with seafood and shellfish. WW 90. Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 ($72) A blockbuster thats going to need a few years to really show its stuff. Its deep inky purple, promising an extracted, fullbodied style. Raspberry aromas on the nose, along with other mixed red and black fruits. The palate comes through with black plum, graphite, red and black cherry, and clove. This wine is a baby, and will benefit greatly from a few more years in the bottle or several hours in a decanter. WW 93.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Where does the word sommelier come from? Derrick L., Port CharlotteA: The word, which is used to describe someone who is knowledgeable about wine and often controls the wine collection in a restaurant, comes from saumalier, a Provenal word that originally meant a pack-animal driver, but came to signify a butler, or someone in charge of provisions.

All Drinks! Beer Wine Mixed Frozen Whole Steamed Maine Lobster! VINOThe Chianti connectionTheres one winegrowing area thats probably among everybodys favorite: Chianti. We all love pizza, pasta, red sauces and the other cuisines that are so characteristic of the area, but theres lots more to explore, and so many Tuscan wines to appreciate. Plus, the area has changed quite a bit in the last few years in the way it makes and classifies its wine, so a bit of catching up is certainly in order. The region of Tuscany is mostly the area west and southwest of Florence, to the coast. It includes the walled city of Lucca (well worth a visit) and Pisa, as well as the famous winemaking towns of Montalcino, Montepulciano, Maremma and Bolgheri. Thats the easy part. How the wines are classified is a bit more fun to figure out. The Chianti area is divided into several sub-regions. The most famous is Chianti Classico, which are the bottles with the black rooster logo that youll see on the neckband. But other regions, such as Rufina, Colli Senesi (Siena Hills) and Colli Fiorentini (Florentine Hills) produce wines that are also well worth a try. The major grape used in the traditional (and legally specified) Chianti blend or recipe is Sangiovese, which must comprise at least 75 percent of the contents. Other reds, such as Canaiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Syrah can also be used in smaller quantities. Back in the day, we used to drink Chianti out of a rounded bottle that came in a straw basket. In Italian this type of bottle is called a fiasco, and theres a reason for that. We dont drink it any more (and neither should you), having discovered so many other delightful alternatives. Most wines from the various Chianti regions are legally classified loosely according to quality. Youll see the letters DOC or DOCG on the label or neck band. These classifications are decreed and bestowed by the governing authorities. In the past few years, they initiated another classification called Gran Selezione, which is given only to Classico wines that have been aged for a minimum of 2 years. In Italy, as well as other places like France and Spain, wine is not considered a beverage. Its food, and part of a meal like everything else on the table. So Tuscan wines, with their high acidity and firm tannins, pair perfectly with tomato dishes, which are also acidic and contain a considerable amount of salt. This salty component, incidentally, helps to modify and calm down the tannins of the wines. The tasting panel and I were delighted to recently evaluate a wide range of Tuscan wines, and some of our favorites are listed here. There are more, and well come back to them another time. Sample widely. Selvapiana Chianti Rufino 2014 ($17) Translucent reddish-tawny in the glass, this wine offers notes of leaves, tobacco and red currant. The currant notes come through boldly on the palate, with a great balance of acidity and tannin. While most Chianti is best as an accompaniment to food, this one can be enjoyed on its own. WW 88-89. Luce della Vite Lucente Toscana 2014 ($18) Gorgeous deep ruby color in the glass with aromas of cherry, blackberry and black plum. The concentrated flavors of black cherry, leather and pepper are nicely balanced with firm tannins. A great choice alone or with food. Aged mostly in new French oak, this is a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese. WW 92. Le Volte DellOrnellaia Toscana 2015 ($28) Theres an enormous burst of up-front aromas, including smoke and black fruit. The palate is full-bodied, round and balanced, offering strong accents of blueberry. We loved it. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and about 13 percent Sangiovese. WW 92-93.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Why do sulfites in wine sometimes give people headaches? Brett H., Fort LauderdaleA: They dont. Generally, people who experience headaches from red wine are sensitive to the histamines that occur as a natural by-product of fermentation. Some asthmatics do experience a sensitivity to sulfites, but this is relatively rare. c t a g b d jerryGREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com a perfect pairingPick up a copy of Florida Weekly at these Total Wine & More locations FORT MYERS Total Wine & More Market Square Shopping Center 13711 S.

South was confronted by just such a situation in today's deal, where Wests double of four spades stopped his partner from bidding five hearts, which would have gone down only one. However, we can only report what actually happened, which is that South found himself in four spades doubled. Two rounds of hearts were led, declarer ruffing the second. The normal play in the trump suit would have been to lead a spade to the king followed by a spade to the jack. But Wests one-trump bid and subsequent double made it clear that this was one finesse that was guaranteed to fail. South therefore rejected the normal play in favor of one that gave him at least some chance to avoid a trump loser. He had to hope that East was dealt the doubleton ten of spades. Accordingly, he cashed the ace of spades at trick three and then led the jack. Had West started with the Q-10-x of spades, or with any four spades including the queen, this backward approach would have proven fruitless, since West would have been assured of a trump trick come what may. As it was, though, West was a dead duck. If he covered the jack with the queen, Easts ten would fall under Souths ace when the next spade was led, and dummys nine would pick up Wests eight to make the contract. And if West did not play the queen on the jack, South would let the jack ride to achieve the same result. Since Wests spade holding was rather anemic, he should have passed four spades to give his partner the option of bidding five hearts. He has our gratitude, though, because without him, wed have had no story to tell.

When I was a kid, wed head up U.S. 41 from Fort Myers to Sarasota there was no I-75 back then. Youd drive through Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and North Port before stopping at a couple of shops in Venice. North of Venice were the hamlets of Osprey and Nokomis, where there was a shop that had windows crammed with colorful Victorian glass my lawn-mowing money didnt go very far there. From there, wed drive to Sarasota for an elegant show at the Art Deco Municipal Auditorium. There, youd see elegant porcelains, 19th-century English Staffordshire figures, furnishings dating from the early 19th century and booth after booth of sparkling cut glass and silver. My lawn-mowing money didnt go very far there, either. I still remember visiting Methuselahs, a Sarasota shop that was there for decades. It was filled with beautiful oak furniture from the United States and abroad. I walk through shows today to see pieces that would have been priced in the hundreds and the thousands back in the 1970s, but the markets have changed. Younger generations are not collecting the finery that people of my grandparents and parents era did. So that means some of the goodies that were priced in the thousands 40 years ago are priced in the hundreds today, and I very nearly could afford some of these goodies with my lawn-mowing money. Long ago, someone told me never to buy an antique as an investment, but rather to buy it because I liked it. The same thing goes for the limitededition collectibles that flood the market today. Only buy an object because you like it and plan to display it. And remember: Sometimes, the thrill of the hunt is as memorable as the acquisition. Thats why I smile at the sweet memories of traveling the highways of 1970s Florida.

Its amazing that its flowers and leaves are intact.Found: Consign & Design, Promenade Plaza, 9810 Alternate A1A, Palm Beach Gardens; 561694-0964. Paid: $55 The Skinny: An object of quality always stands out. This Parian ware vase makes that case for me beautifully. Parian was an unglazed white porcelain created in the 19th century that resembled marble. It drew on the white biscuit porcelain created at the French factory of Sevres. English firms capitalized on the ware, displaying it at the Great Exhibition of 1851, according to The Antiques Almanac (www.theantiquesalmanac.com). Initially, factories used the medium to produce copies of classical marble busts and sculptures. It meant that for the first time, members of the middle class could own expensive-looking artwork. The English firms of Copeland & Garrett, Worcester, Minton and Wedgwood all made Parian. So did Fenton, of Bennington, Vermont, which created pieces encrusted with grapes, leaves and other flora. Online sources suggest this 18-inch vase, which is covered with roses and chrysanthemums, was made in 19th-century France or Germany. Its unmarked. But I do know it would have been priced many times what I paid for it had I been shopping in the 1970s. Thats a lot of lawns to mow.

C18 WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FILM CAPSULESThe Post (Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Bob Odenkirk) The owner (Streep) and executive editor (Hanks) of The Washington Post debate whether to publish articles on the newly leaked and highly classified Pentagon Papers in the early 0s. Director Steven Spielbergs latest is a good drama that tells a good story and is by no means a disappointment, but its also unlikely to be the strong Oscar contender many are expecting. Rated PG-13.Downsizing (Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz) With the promise of a better life, Paul (Damon) and his wife Audrey (Wiig) agree to shrink themselves and live out their days in a micro-community. 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.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 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 on three billboards to move the investigation along. The performances and script are tremendous, and best of all the film has real personality. Its a sure Oscar contender. Rated R. The 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. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2018 5:00 P.M. TO 7:00 P.M.

YesA great actor can say a lot without saying anything at all. After Hostiles, let there be no doubt Christian Bale is a great actor. Bales Capt. Joe Blocker is a study in repressed emotion and searing internal pain. Its 1892 in Colorado, and this former Union soldier is ready to retire. Hes spent his postCivil War career in the untamed American West, tracking, arresting and killing Native Americans who harmed White people. He speaks softly because mere words cannot describe the horrors he has seen. Whats interesting about writer/ director Scott Coopers (Black Mass) film is that we learn through dialog what Joe has done, and why he did it, but we learn the effect its had on him only by watching Bale, whose facial expressions and mannerisms say more than Joe could ever express verbally. For example, when Col. Biggs (Stephen Lang) orders Joe to escort a Cheyenne chief named Yellow Hawk (Wes Studi) and the chiefs family to Montana, watch how a look of sorrow and fury overwhelms Joes face. Smalls ticks, such as moving his jaw to one side and looking away, suggest extreme unhappiness. He then tells the colonel why he doesnt want the job, and because his face just emoted as much as it did we realize, and feel, how incredibly difficult this is for him. Joe has help and needs it on the dangerous trip through Apache territory. His longtime cohort Tommy (Rory Cochrane) is emotionally spent; Henry (Jonathan Majors) has also been loyal to Joe for years; Rudy (Jesse Plemons) is fresh out of West Point; and Philippe (Timothee Chalamet) just joined the service. They are escorting the chief, his son Black Hawk (Adam Beach), Black Hawks wife Elk Woman (Qorianka Kilcher), and a few others. They also come across a distraught White woman (Rosamund Pike) whose family has just been murdered, so Joe and co. help her. Western fans will recognize elements of Stagecoach here, but in terms of tone and character its similar to The Searchers in that Joe is just as much of a savage as Yellow Hawk. Cooper is careful to not pass judgment on either character, and by not making either a hero or villain he allows for an unlikely understanding to form between the two. On a larger level, thematically, Cooper also calls attention to the decline of the American West and mistreatment of Native Americans, which echoes Dances with Wolves without being preachy. Cooper runs into trouble, however, by not giving the 134-minute film a tighter edit. Some scenes run long, while a good number of others shouldve been excised completely because they do nothing to advance the story. A film like Hostiles shouldnt feel this tedious. Lets hope Cooper, who did well with Bale in Out of the Furnace (2013) and directed Jeff Bridges to an Oscar in Crazy Heart (2009), doesnt make this kind of excess a habit. Still, Hostiles is worth a look for its fine performances and scenic cinematography. And if you get anything from the message of putting yourself in your enemys shoes and understanding that perspective, even better. t S o c c h u dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Christian Bale and Ben Foster, who plays a Union of cer sentenced to hang for his crimes, also appeared together in the 2007 :10 to Yuma remake.Did you know?

CELEBRITY EXTRALook for Roseanne in March BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I remember you writing about Roseanne coming back to television, and I thought it would have premiered by now. Do you have any more details? Barbie Y., via emailA: The Roseanne reboot which brings back pretty much all the series cast members, including Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert and both Beckys (!) debuts Tuesday, March 27, on ABC for a nine-episode 10th season. In this iteration, Sarah Chalke (Becky No. 2) plays a new character named Andrea, a married woman who hires Becky (Lecy Goranson) to serve as her surrogate. The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki returns as David, but because of scheduling conflicts, he will appear in only one episode. An original cast member who wont be back is Beckys husband, Mark Healy, who was played by Glenn Quinn; Glenn passed away in 2002 of a heroin overdose. His characters memory will be honored in the new season: David (Marks brother) and Darla named their son Mark. The decision not to recast the role, along with the naming of David and Darlas son in honor of Mark, points to the conclusion that the character of Mark also will be deceased. Q: I just finished both seasons of The Crown and absolutely adore it. But I heard that for season three, most if not all of the main roles will be recast. Why? I love everyone on the show. Connie F., Fort Myers, FloridaA: Netflix recently announced that Olivia Colman will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II in seasons three and four of the hit historical drama. And the most recent unofficial announcement is that Helena Bonham Carter will portray Princess Margaret. From the get-go, series creator Peter Morgan spoke of his intent to recast characters to better portray them as they age. As of this writing, there has been no announcement as to who will take over the role of Prince Philip from Matt Smith.

So instead of heading over to Watersides more virtuous option, True Food Kitchen, we opted to tuck into a hearty meal that complemented the chilly weather and our overwhelming desire for carbs. Up to the top floor of Nordstrom we went, where I ordered the Gruyere and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese to wipe out my days allotment of calories in one shot. Between two slices of onion bread were warm and satisfying nutty gr uyere, salty pr osciutto and a thick slathering of onion jam. It was tasty and indulgent enough to give me the boost I needed to continue a daily dose of green smoothies and hard-boiled eggs. One More Thing: I almost devoted this edition of The Dish to the cafs Bistro Crab Bisque, which was so rich and slightly tangy I could have bathed in it. If youre looking for the quintessential bowl of bisque, this is it.

Crab cakes topped with poached eggs and Andouille-infused Hollandaise, for example. Omelets with lobsters and Brie and even some breakfast appetizers, like the Baked Brie Delight a slab of warm cheese served with apples, raisins and pecans lightly sauted in Grand Marnier butter sauce paired with toasted French bread. Other winners were a large bowl of house-made granola, fruit and quinoa with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt; the Bacquezo, an omelet with cream cheese, bacon, chorizo, Monterey Jack and green onions; and the Hey Lucy! omelet with chorizo, sauted onions, green chiles and cheddar. A Belgian waffle and gluten-free pancakes were top-notch as well. A bonus: The staff is uniformly welcoming and efficient. Lunch served, too. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Zos Kitchen 22941 Lyden Drive, Estero 494-3540 9108 Strada Place, Suite 14110 Naples, 207-3894 Zos Kitchen is a fast-casual concept that invites patrons to Live Med (as in, embrace the healthy cuisine and mindset of the Mediterranean region). The approach emphasizes grilling lean meats there are no microwaves or fryers in the kitchens and seasoning food generously with naturally flavorful fresh herbs, spices and lemon. There are plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options for those with special dietary needs. Theres also an authenticity to Zos food that bucks the usual corporate-chain mentality of shying away from intense flavors. Items such as lamb kafta, farro and quinoa salads, pitas stuffed with salmon or Greek chicken and cauliflower rice bowls are accompanied by savory sauces such as Moroccan harissa, Greek tzatziki and Middle Eastern skhug. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2017 A Table Apart, 4295 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs, 221-8540 Hawaiian chef Jeff Acol and his French wife, Jessica, are devoted to serving only sustainable seafood and naturally raised meats, but thats only one of the characteristics that sets them apart. Their menu reflects a union of diverse influences, blending cuisines, flavors and techniques in uncommon ways. An appetizer of escargot, for instance, is inspired by Philippine adobo, so the snails are bathed in coconut milk seasoned with vinegar and soy sauce with hints of kaffir lime. The culinary commingling continues with Hawaiian teabraised pork tucked into Mexican quesadillas and fried whole snapper over soba. The pommes frites are a must, whether or not you order them laced with truffle oil. A flat-iron steak crusted with house-smoked blue cheese comes with a delicious balsamic tomato sauce. Save room house made desserts of Okinawa sweet potato pie or passion fruit cheesecake. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2016 KC American Bistro Pavilion Shopping Center 885 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples 566-2371 Never mind that you cant see this place from the road, concealed as it is on the side of a shopping center thats not the center of the Neapolitan universe. KC American Bistro has a loyal following and for good reason: Chef/ owner Keith Casey is talented and creative and runs a first-class restaurant thats only gotten better in the eight years since he opened. Menu dishes are organized by regions of the country, and its fun to mix and match. The Florida fresh ceviche, consisting of black grouper and yellowfin tuna with corn and bell pepper in a citrus marinade and cilantro crme fraiche, was less spicy than most, but flavorful nonetheless. The Maryland blue crab souffl was full of lump crab, lightly browned and crisp on a pool of sweet corn puree. Troll king salmon encrusted in pumpkin seeds came atop a stellar sweet potato gratin, and the zinfandel braised short rib was fork tender and devoid of fat, made even better by a wild mushroom veal jus. Parsnip-laced mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts were perfect accompaniments. For dessert: house-made chocolate ganache with wild berry coulis was rich and just right for two. Full bar.

Never mind the somewhat drab exterior. Theres valet parking and a thoughtful staff whose aim is to ensure guests have a great evening. Booths are most distant from the band so you might land one if you want it (although most people the night of our visit were more interested in proximity to the band and dance floor). There are no surprises on the menu, but the New England-themed seafood menu is solid with lots of choices for meat and seafood lovers. Salads were fresh and the New England clam chowder was laden with clams and potatoes. A surf and turf special included a tasty one-pound lobster, corn on the cob and a big baked potato along with the steak. Both the wine list (bottle and glass) and cocktail menu contained a wealth of choices. And the band played on.

And Stoneys Steakhouse. And, albeit for a brief time, Alto Jazz Kitchen/Meredays Brasserie. Alas, all of these are gone and with them went some of the life of this lovely spot just east of Fifth Avenue South. On the plus side, St. Germains Steakhouse has replaced Stoneys Steakhouse and now Stoneys Stone Crab operates where Alto/Meredays once were. Ive heard there are plans for a farmto-table restaurant in the Roys space and a couple of other new establishments as well, so the vitality of this opulent retail/ residential development may soon be restored. Stoneys, the brainchild of development owner Kevin Stoneburner, is a big step in the right direction. The space has been deftly redecorated, the spacious stage on which great jazz groups played has been removed, allowing for more tables in the dining room. The ambience is casual yet classy, with linen tablecloths and napkins, banquettes lining one wall and overhead lights bright enough to read the menu but still maintain a cozy, glare-free mood. The adjoining bar, which was well populated on a recent Friday evening, remains much as I remember it. Stoneys opened just before Christmas and the staff has clearly found its rhythm. A smiling young woman opened the door for us as we arrived, another greeted us and swiftly seated us. Yet another appeared to offer us bottled water or Naples finest, and a server attendant was quick to deliver a basket of fresh, crusty bread with both butter and oil. Our server swiftly appeared as well, although it took us a few minutes to decide on a wine (Cloudy Bay sauvignon blanc) and more time to select appetizers and entrees. Nonetheless, he returned periodically to check on our progress but not so often that we felt rushed. The wine arrived properly chilled and he brought an ice bucket to ensure it stayed that way through our meal. As you might expect in a place with the words stone crab in the name, there are crab claws on the menu as well as many other seafood options from which to choose. Grouper, mahi, mussels and oysters, shrimp, tuna and conch chowder were among the choices. I was happy to see that basa and tilapia two species that are inexpensive and largely unhealthy were absent from the menu, as were most northern seafood varieties. The fish and chips features red grouper rather than cod or haddock. Exceptions to that rule, however, included Scottish salmon, Northern Atlantic lobster tails and Alaskan king crab, which are favorites that few restaurants would do without. Stone crabs are available for appetizers or dinner in medium, large and jumbo sizes. For carnivores, there are steaks and a la carte sides ranging from $6 blue cheese and house barbecue sauce to a $20 butter-poached lobster tail and an array of a la carte side dishes, starting with $6 french fries and rising to premium sides such as lobster risotto or crab mac and cheese for $18. (Higher priced premium sides are designed to serve two.) A relatively light starter was the chilled shellfish platter ($22), which held two stone crab claws, two oysters on the half shell and two large shrimp along with caper berries, mustard sauce, horseradish, cocktail sauce, lemon wedges and a tiny bottle of Tabasco sauce. The claws were nicely cracked for easy access and the meat was sweet on its own, although the sauce and horseradish added some zing. The oysters were fresh and firm, needing nothing more than a spritz of fresh lemon juice. While the shrimp were large and attractive, they didnt have much flavor. In their case, the cocktail sauce was a must. From the Chefs Creations, we tried the blackened grouper ($36) and the surf and turf ($55). The grouper was nicely seasoned, possessing just a little heat. It was topped with delicious shrimp sausage and Creole cream sauce over rice. The fish was flaky and cooked just right with a wealth of flavors that blended together nicely. The surf and turf consisted of a 7-ounce sirloin st eak and a butterpoached lobster tail over garlic mashed potatoes. The lobster tail was sweet and tender. The steak was a bit overcooked, but the demi-glace and mashed potatoes added moisture and flavor. All of the desserts are made in house. We shared the chocolate bread pudding ($12) with flaming cherries jubilee and vanilla gelato. The dish was flamed at the table, which created a brief show. The pudding was chewy and rich, with a generous helping of plump cherries on top and gelato with a vibrant vanilla flavor on the side. Again the kitchen demonstrated skill in balancing flavors and textures well. Service was attentive throughout dinner with the notable exception of wine service. We wound up pouring it ourselves as the dining room quickly filled up. It wasnt a big deal, just something that seemed out of character for a restaurant that clearly prides itself on service. One month in, Stoneys shows great promise. With few exceptions, the staff in front and back of the house do a great job of delivering the goods. Lets hope this is the start of a Bayfront Place renaissance. KAREN FELDMAN / FLORIDA WEEKLYA chilled shellfish platter can be tailored to two, four or six diners.

No way, declared the naysayers with conviction. Its not possible in this climate. In this sandy soil. With the plethora of pests. Too much bacteria. The weather is too volatile. It turns out they were very wrong. The intrepid farmers didnt listen and farms have cropped up all over the region. Worden Farms and Three Suns Ranch in Punta Gorda. Asbury Acres and 12 Seasons in North Fort Myers. Florida Microgreens in Cape Coral. Circle C in Bonita Springs. Buckingham Farms in, well, Buckingham. Southern Fresh in Fort Myers. Inyoni and Oakes in Naples. Dozens of small farms have followed suit, producing vegetables and beef and pork and cheese and eggs and honey and fruit and microgreens. And thats led to partnerships with local restaurants where chefs have embraced the opportunity to trade in the commer cially distributed products they once had no choice but to purchase for the local ones of which theyd long dreamed. A few ambitious restaurateurs have even gone so far as to go whole hog into the farm-to-table movement, buy ing virtually all of their produce, meats and seafood from local producers local meaning within a few hundred miles. That allows them to know who grew what they purchase and how it was grown. And they know that what they receive will be fresh and that it hasnt traveled cross country or been gassed to ripen. For customers, it means they can enjoy food thats fresher, more nutritious and has more vibrant flavor. Here, then, are four such establishments throughout Southwest Florida that have embraced this healthy, deli cious movement.Table & TapBabcock Ranch, Punta Gorda ONE OF THE NEWEST ENTRIES IS SITUATED IN ONE OF THE regions newest developments: Table & Tap is the recent -I Chef Richard Howze of Table and Tap at Babcock Ranch in Punta Gorda.

They already get all the honey they use from hives on the property, including Brazilian pepper, orange blossom, blueberry and palmetto. Lots of little microfarms in the area have been stop ping by to tell us about themselves, Mr. Howze says. The restaurant currently offers products from nearby farms in dishes such as cage-free omelets, pork belly steamed buns, brussels sprouts with goat cheese, fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, bacon-wrapped meat loaf and tequila Key lime pie, among other items. The developers plan to plant gardens in each neighbor hood so that residents will be able to grow and harvest their own vegetables. There also will be gardens to sup ply the restaurant as well as Slaters Goods & Provisions, an organic market and caf that will open soon, and the developments charter school, which opened this fall.

Harolds is the latest of Mr. Balinks culinary endeavors others being Harolds on Bay, H2 and Cru and its the most intimate, with a mere 35 seats. Its also the most ambitious because its all farmand sea-to-table with a menu that changes weekly, as the ingredients do.Obviously, there are times when he has to go further afield for products than others (summer is a tough time to grow produce here), but youll find plenty of local delights on the menu, items like Circle C pork belly with hoisin, cashews and brussels sprouts, and Jackman Ranch beef. He also uses Circle C honey, as well as foraged mush rooms, line-caught fish and free-range, sustainable game.After being in business for two years, hes finding it easier to procure the items he seeks.

Boat captains will text me on Sunday to let me know what theyve got, and Circle C Ranch supplies my eggs, poultry, lamb and pork. Besides resulting in dishes that have pure, vibrant flavors, Mr. Balink sees another advantage: Its created a sense of community, promoting conversations between vendors and clients. It spurs ideas as chefs ask for products, and farmers work to meet those needs, expanding their repertoire and the choices available for the restaurants. Customers reap the rewards by knowing they are eat ing fresh food free of pesticides and antibiotics. And although the menu changes regularly, Mr. Balink understands that there are some dishes his customers expect to see, such as the roasted cauliflower Buffalo style with blue cheese appetizer, the house-made pap pardelle with Bolognese sauce and scallops in some form. But beyond that, the menu is based on what I get, and I have fun with each dish, he says. So do his customers. Harolds Restaurant, 15250 S. Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers; 239-649-0622.

At first, he had to contract with farmers to grow what he needed and then hope the crops would grow. Over the years, Nick (Batty of Inyoni Farm in Naples) has been our main supplier, Mr. Mitchell says. Hes very flexible. And Worden Farms (in Punta Gorda) has been good to work with. Five years later, he now does business with a variety of farmers they are posted on his website and so has access to a wide range of products. Thats allowed him to start doing brunch on the weekends in addition to his well-established lunch and dinner service. He can count on getting his staples, such as kale, spin ach, leaf lettuce, arugula and zucchini, pretty much all the time. Other regulars on the menu include Key West shrimp pizzas, Pine Island clams oreganata and lots of Palmetto Creek pork belly, even at breakfast. I love breakfast, Mr. Mitchell says. Fresh squeezed orange juice, a good cup of coffee and bacon. The Culinary Institute of America grad just started weekend brunch in November and is slowly adding to it with things like the farmers market frittata, which will contain whatever vegetables are fresh and in season. Recently, that included zucchini blossoms. Some items are evergreens. The organic kale Caesar salad is a favorite, along with the pot roast with grandmas veggies and the vegan Korean veggie tacos. Cowboy steaks, a local catch, burgers and pizzas provide some thing for every diet and taste. The main point, he says, is to highlight what South west Florida has to offer.

During a recent event offerings included vegan vegetable curry soup, tacos made with pork or buckwheat topped with zesty salsa, crunchy okra and sweet winter squash. On Wednesday afternoons, she welcomes the farmers in for a farmers market so customers can buy direct from the producers. When she isnt planning a class or dinner, she creates prepared meals that customers can drop in and buy. On Monday, we look at what farmers bring in the produce, local meat and eggs, she says. We start with a baseline vegan, gluten-free menu and do the prepared items from that platform, she says. Then we add some meat thats been humanely raised and harvested. Our food is both healthful and indulgent, with really good entrees but dessert will have some butter and sugar. Prepared items include soups, grain salads, roasted vegetables, vegetable salads, and a line of vegan sweets, even chocolate cashew butter. We want people to eat well and enjoy food, but we realize we all dont have time to cook at home every night, Ms. San Filippo says. They can get their ingre dients here from the farmers and on the nights you cant cook, weve got you covered. Themes for cooking classes and dinners are wide ranging for Christmas there was the feast of the seven fishes, as well as a class called A Bounty of Seafood, one on sushi, another on Southern Italian cooking. There are periodic tours of local farms that include lunch or dinner. The experiences help people understand how the process of growing and harvesting food both vegetable and meat works.

Plan on packing at least two suits, one stylish to wear lounging by the resort pool or beach, the other more sporty in case you take an unexpected plunge while paddleboarding or kayaking. Think resort casual when planning your wardrobe; only a handful of restaurants still require collared shirts, ties and suitcoat for nighttime dining. Southwest Florida style is laid-back sundresses and flip-flops, polo shirts and shorts are practically standard issue. Winter nights can dip into chilly, restaurants crank up the AC during the day, and breezy waterfront venues necessitating a sweater, pashmina or light jacket. Village-inspired shopping venues mean lots of ground to cover; bring comfortable shoes. Outfitters and captains provide all the gear youll need for hitting the water, although you might want to invest in a waterproof camera to capture the scenery and the fish that didnt get away. Serious shellers should consider a collapsible scoop ideal for travelling and a mesh bag for easy rinsing. Finally, if youre hitting the brewery or distillery tours, make sure your Uber apps up to date.

That urban legend-y and some what subjective list depends on the survey; a quick Google search showed Collier County No. 1 or No. 5. Created by famed golf archi tects and PGA pros think Greg Norman, Lee Trevino and Jack Nicklaus among them the majority of the regions courses lie behind physical walls, exclusively for use by gated community residents and country club members. Nonetheless, there are plenty of public and semi-pri vate courses offering a playing experience and 19th-hole comparable to the swankiest clubs, some so steeped in the natural setting you might momentarily forget your game. The Golfin Guy, aka David Theoret (and in full edito rial disclosure: this writers brother), has played most of Southwest Floridas courses private and public for his blog. Mr. Theoret has a 10 handicap and, unlike his sister, isnt a disgrace to the familys Scottish heritage. Here are five of his faves:Tiburn Golf Club CONSISTENTLY RATED AMONG FLORIDAS TOP 20 GOL F FAC ILI ties by Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine Tiburn offers two challenging Greg Norman-designed 18-hole courses, simply named the Black Course and the Gold Course. The Black hosts the PGA Tours QBE Shootout, often attended by the Shark himself. Both courses introduce elements of Australian design with open approaches to the greens that encourage the bump-and-run shot, Mr. Theoret noted. Located adjacent to the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, the landscaping reflects the lushness of its neighbor and theres a noticeable lack of rough to stop wayward hooks and slices. Both courses are known for the use of stacked sod wall bunkers, crushed coquina shell bunkers and the absence of conventional rough, said Mr. Theoret.

Playing the length of the 7,005-yard Black Course is more suited for low-handicapper and pro players.

Because tees are close to greens, its also one of the few Southwest Florida courses conducive to walking. Many players take full advantage especially during season and its still easy to get around, said Mr. Theoret. Greens, he added, are fast and true. The subtle undulations and long sweeping breaks on a few keep you honest on the putting green. Among the more memorable holes: the short 335-yard par-four No. 12 demanding accuracy off the tee to avoid a large waste area nestled along the fairway and two looming pot bunkers. Although this is the short est par four on the course, it is by no means a pushover. Kingsway Country Club, 13625 S.W.

Located eight miles east of the interstate, its a bit out there but benefits from the lack of a built environment. Translation: A more natural Florida setting and wildlife encounters, no homes or even a clubhouse yet. In addition to playing one of, if not the nicest course in Florida, youre likely to see your fair share of wildlife, said Mr. Theoret. They can usually be found searching for food in marshes that are typically sur rounded by palmetto groves, cypress trees and tall pines. Most of the greens are elevated 10 to 20 feet and undulate like Busch Gardens coasters, he noted. No matter where you play from, this course is going to test your mettle. Water figures into most tee shots, coming into play on nearly every hole. You will also find many sculpted bun kers guarding the large fairway landing areas, as well as numerous greenside sand traps that add to the challenge of hitting the greens. In some cases you will be surprised to find a second water hazard lurking greenside.

Do yourself a favor and pick up the yardage booklet for the nine-hole Osprey and nine-hole Hawk courses; it covers all the environmental efforts under taken as well as a hole-by-hole description of Raptor Bays frequent flyers (bald eagles and egrets) and wildlife. Mr. Theoret said the course design incorporates native sand and stands of palmettos. Youll also notice a void of sand bunkers and homes along with tree-lined fairways and well-guarded greens lending a tournament feel. What I like most is you need to hit the greens or pay the price, he said. Because of its design, missing the green by a few feet can result in a lost ball.

Theoret singles out the Lee Trevino-designed Mustang for proving a challenge for low handicap players as well as accommodating average golfers. The course offers a variety of golf holes that are difficult to a point, but always fun to play, he said. You can easily recover from most errant shots. Trevino also designed generous landing areas and fair entries to the greens; almost always there is ample bail out room. Other player friendly features, including easy-to-negotiate hazards, keep many people coming back year after year. He does warn about No. 6, called the Marsh for a reason. The water isnt readily visible from the tee. There are fewer homes and the course wends around 12 lakes and stands of tall Florida pines.

For more information or to schedule a consultation appointment, please call (941) 625-3411 2010-2017 Keeping up with the newest surgical advancesDomingo E. Galliano Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.S.C.R.S University Surgical AssociatesWhat is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?The most significant change in the surgical arena over the last year has been the emergence and specialization of robotic surgery. More and more patients, through the internet and social media, have been educated as to the advantages of robotic surgery. Patients who have undergone this type of surgery are spreading the word and giving testimony regarding this minimally invasive procedure through one or more dime sized incisions. They realize that such surgeries result in less pain, less discomfort and minimal scarring. I joined the bandwagon from the very beginning and now can claim having performed over 500 DaVinci robotic procedures within Charlotte County. As a board certified colorectal surgeon, I have performed the most robotic surgeries in Southwest Florida.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry?Personally, as a general surgeon/ colon rectal surgeon, I am proud of helping the community to face one of their greatest fears finally bowel control problems are coming out of the closet. There are sayings that ring true, such as the reference to a pain in the ass. Patients are suffering in silence from painful anorectal disorders. Incontinence, irritable bowel syndrome and constipation problems are causing individuals to avoid social situations with family and friends from fears of having discomfort or an accident. I offer an ever growing array of diagnostic procedures and nonsurgical and surgical treatments for fecal incontinence. For example, I have extensive experience with the InterStim therapy for Bowel Control, which uses an implant of a pacemaker like device that stimulates sacral nerves, which strengthens the pelvic floor and sphincter complex. The list of treatment options are various including TEM Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery, Solesta gel injections, and anorectoplasty, to name a few. Patients are so grateful to regain normal living without having to GPS the nearest bathroom.How are you responding to changes in the local economy?The population of Charlotte County has expanded significantly. The census has grown by 11.6 percent since 2010 with approximately 38.8 percent of the population being over 65. With increasing population comes greater demands for health care. As a surgeon in an independent practice, I am becoming a dinosaur in the universe of expanding group practices. That only makes me more resilient and eager to keep up with the pace and diversity of my patient population. I welcome the opportunity to expand my practice. I am constantly seeking out the most up to date medical equipment so that I can more efficiently test and treat my patient population. My patients treatment depends on a correct diagnosis. In my office, we have a variety of GI/ GU tests and rectal physiology studies that are available in house to correctly diagnose a patients condition and then set a course of action. An excellent staff and highly trained technicians allow me to service the growing needs of our local community.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business.Diversity: I am a board certified in three different areas: general surgery, colon and rectal surgery, and surgical critical care. That allows me a comprehensive understanding and a vast surgical knowledge base to address any of my patients medical issues from head to foot. Newest surgical advances: When not in the office or operating room, I am often attending national and international conferences being educated and trained in new surgical procedures. The community will see me often in the newspaper advertising my talks on such topics as IBS, fecal continence, hemmorhoids, GERD and gastrointestinal disorders. I pride myself on striving to be the first surgeon to introduce various technological advances to Charlotte County. Marketing: A comprehensive and continually updated website is mandatory for todays businesses. In my case, a user-friendly website allows my patients to review my credentials and gain information on the various procedures my practice offers. Doctors are typically not good business men or women. For me, business is all about staying on the top of your game. Whats your super power?My superpower lies in my passion for surgery. This is what I was born to do. Everybody has a gift they were born with. As a young kid, I would hang around my father who was a surgeon and his job seemed pretty exciting. I couldnt imagine wasting my life in a job that I didnt love. People tell me to slow down because I work so hard. They dont realize that each day is an adventure. For me, the learning curve is endless because science is moving at an incredible pace. Domingo E. Galliano Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.S.C.R.SWHO AM I?NAME: Domingo E.

The list of treatment options are various including TEM Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery, Solesta gel injections, and anorectoplasty, to name a few. Patients are so grateful to regain normal living without having to GPS the nearest bathroom.How are you responding to changes in the local economy?The population of Charlotte County has expanded significantly. The census has grown by 11.6 percent since 2010 with approximately 38.8 percent of the population being over 65. With increasing population comes greater demands for health care. As a surgeon in an independent practice, I am becoming a dinosaur in the universe of expanding group practices. That only makes me more resilient and eager to keep up with the pace and diversity of my patient population. I welcome the opportunity to expand my practice. I am constantly seeking out the most up to date medical equipment so that I can more efficiently test and treat my patient population. My patients treatment depends on a correct diagnosis. In my office, we have a variety of GI/ GU tests and rectal physiology studies that are available in house to correctly diagnose a patients condition and then set a course of action. An excellent staff and highly trained technicians allow me to service the growing needs of our local community.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business.Diversity: I am a board certified in three different areas: general surgery, colon and rectal surgery, and surgical critical care. That allows me a comprehensive understanding and a vast surgical knowledge base to address any of my patients medical issues from head to foot. Newest surgical advances: When not in the office or operating room, I am often attending national and international conferences being educated and trained in new surgical procedures. The community will see me often in the newspaper advertising my talks on such topics as IBS, fecal continence, hemmorhoids, GERD and gastrointestinal disorders. I pride myself on striving to be the first surgeon to introduce various technological advances to Charlotte County. Marketing: A comprehensive and continually updated website is mandatory for todays businesses. In my case, a user-friendly website allows my patients to review my credentials and gain information on the various procedures my practice offers. Doctors are typically not good business men or women. For me, business is all about staying on the top of your game. Whats your super power?My superpower lies in my passion for surgery. This is what I was born to do. Everybody has a gift they were born with. As a young kid, I would hang around my father who was a surgeon and his job seemed pretty exciting. I couldnt imagine wasting my life in a job that I didnt love. People tell me to slow down because I work so hard. They dont realize that each day is an adventure. For me, the learning curve is endless because science is moving at an incredible pace. Domingo E. Galliano Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.S.C.R.S WHO AM I?NAME: Domingo E.
