Enough sun and enough rain: joy. Too much or too little sun or rain: despair.So as President Trump introduces his $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan this week to build gleaming new roads, bridges, highways, railways and waterways all across our land, Ill be wondering about weather.Florida happens to have weather, as you may have noticed. It happens to have significant and challenging infrastructure needs that Mr. Trumps plan may help address as well. And it even has a governor, Rick Scott, not only favored by the president but seemingly in similar denial of this little weather thing called climate change. So maybe Florida will get a bigger helping of the federal money. Both President Trump and Gov. Scott have done their level best to ignore the concept and the demonstrable realities of climate change, weakening the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the state Department of Environmental Protection while encouraging and supporting growth in and out of places where climate change could be a factor. As it turns out, climate change can seriously affect infrastructure that wasnt planned to accommodate it. If you build a gleaming new road along south Floridas Atlantic coastline tomorrow, for example or a couple of hundred new condominium complexes near the water in Miami-Dade County, as developers have been permitted to do in the last couple years its a decent bet portions of the road and perhaps the entrances to some of those condos will be underwater or frequently inaccessible by mid-century. Lefty scientists have been yelling about this climate change thing for a few decades now, but we all know its just a natural condition: a natural condition given a big boost by humans, with 8 billion of us clinging to the planet by 2024. Dr. Harold Wanless, for 19 years the head of the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Miami, put it this way about a Florida with 35 million residents in the midto late century: Every barrier island will be lost. Every low-lying coastal area will be inundated, just like Miami Beach will be. Eight times in the last 800,000 years, he noted every 100,000 years carbon dioxide levels have risen from about 180 to 280 parts per million in the atmosphere (this is easy for geologists to trace back through time, like following a bear track through snow). Sea levels in warming oceans where most of the atmospheric heat ends up have risen accordingly, by about 100 meters. Those cyclic climatechange events occur because of slight variations in the earths orbit, from circular to elliptical and back. When the Industrial Revolution began in the 1830s or s, Dr. Wanless said, carbon dioxide counts and sea levels had reached their maximum in the 100,000year cycle. Previously, those levels had always declined again. Now, however just in the short space of 170 or so years the cycle has been broken, Dr. Wanless explained. Carbon dioxide is up to 405 parts per million and the sea level is rising significantly above the 100-meter maximum that characterized climate change for almost the last million years. Unfortunately, not just federal and state political ostriches are ignoring this fact, or a number of other facts. Local government leaders in vulnerable areas are sticking their heads in the sand as well. When you couple the certainty of rising water levels and greatly increased Florida flooding in the next few decades with decisions not only to avoid finding new funding sources that can keep our children above water, but that actively work to decrease the funding sources we have to pay for infrastructure, youve not only stumbled into quicksand, youve thrown yourself headfirst into it. Not everybody in Florida is this foolish, but a model of such misjudgment a model of what not to do as the weather this century changes is Lee County. In 2013, the board of commissioners cut impact fees by 80 percent fees recommended by the independent consultants it hires to analyze the cost of new growth. Then in 2015 those commissioners still on the board today decided developers and new home buyers should only have to pay 45 percent of the original enacted fees. Four of the five commissioners claimed their decision would encourage growth and make life easier for hard-working men and women struggling to buy new homes or build new commercial properties. In fact, the move pleased Lees builders and developers so much they contributed heavily to the campaign war chests of those commissioners. But the move had little effect on growth. In Collier County or in two Lee County cities, Bonita Springs and Estero, where officials maintained impact fees at 100 percent and in Palm Beach County where officials increased fees in 2014 and may do it again this year growth has been significantly more robust than in Lee County, in spite of higher impact fees. Meanwhile, Lee has lost tens of millions of dollars in fees newcomers traditionally paid to help defray their own impacts the cost of roads, schools (Lees are now in desperate economic straits) and emergency medical care, for example. On Tuesday, Feb. 20, beginning at 9:30 a.m. the Lee commissioners will meet again to decide whether an underfunded life for 1 million Lee County residents 25 years from now could become a reality as commissioners have sketched it out for them so far, or not. For roads alone, the countys current planning falls $1.2 billion short of what those future citizens will need to drive, walk or bicycle safely around. And guess what? Its going to be wetter, too a lot wetter in some places. The weather is changing. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

These are Washington friends, which is to say that when Im reporting on them, theyre often adversaries. In return, they dont give me any sort of favored treatment, particularly those on the two intelligence committees. Any conversation about the superclassified material they routinely see as they conduct their oversight of various national security operations is strictly off-limits. Since the committees were formed in the 1970s, their tradition has been proudly nonpartisan for obvious reasons, relative sanctuaries of harmony in the dissonant screech of politics. Until now. On the Senate side, that still seems to be the approach, but certainly not at House Intelligence, which is chaired by Republican Devin Nunes. As Donald Trumps hand puppet, Nunes has thrown out any pretense of collaboration. He has repeatedly tried to muddy the waters of an investigation into Donald Trumps murky relationship with the Russian government and into whether Vladimir Putin colluded with Trump and/or associates to influence the precious election for the president of the United States. That investigation is being conducted, of course, by special counsel Robert Mueller. Now Nunes, or his staff, has released a memo that attempts to selectively contrive a case that all the Russia probes are somehow tainted by partisanship. He did so over the strenuous objections of the FBI and Justice Department that it gives away secrets. It was released to much fanfare, but frankly, it divulged nothing of consequence, unless you count revealing the desperation that Trump and his cohorts (accomplices) might be feeling as Mueller starts tightening the vise. Nunes has done this kind of clumsy thing before, obliterating any separation between his committees jealously guarded oversight role, and his unsightly willingness to do whatever the Trumpsters want. Democrats predictably were bent out of shape, their twaddle flapping in outrage. But many Republicans were equally steamed. Rep. Trey Gowdy, as partisan as they come and a GOP member of House Intelligence: The contents of this memo do not in any way discredit his investigation. As he so often does, Sen. John McCain kicked it up a notch: The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests no partys, no presidents, only Putins. So now we have Bob Mueller and the FBI plodding along with the investigation, and Donald Trump commissioning several actions to sabotage it. His tactics, and those of the ones who have cast their lots with him, involve building a case against those who are building a case against him. The question is how far hell go in that effort, and what happens if he ends up being officially accused of being the Moscowian candidate. Will the politicians ramp up the courage to take action against him, or will they, like Nunes, continue to be his hand puppet while he serves the same function for Vladimir Putin? What an image! The Democrats had been agitating to put out their response to Nunes memo, their alternative version of the issue. Considering how little impact the GOP hucksters had, why bother? Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Robert Mueller is no Ken StarrNo matter the criticisms directed his way by Republicans, Robert Mueller should count himself lucky: Hes not Ken Starr. The punctilious, mild-mannered independent counsel appointed by a threejudge panel in the 1990s, Starr investigated all manner of Bill Clinton scandals, most spectacularly the Monica Lewinsky affair. As a former D.C. circuit judge and U.S. solicitor general in the first Bush administration, he had struck no one as a goosestepping lieutenant in the sex police, or a partisan fanatic likely to be driven by sheer hatred to attempt to destroy a Democratic president. Starr became all of these things for Clintons defenders, who thought a good offense was the best defense of a president caught lying under oath. A former Clinton adviser said Starrs investigation smacks of Gestapo and outstrips McCarthyism. The estimable historian Garry Wills mused that it shouldnt be Bill Clinton, but Ken Starr who should be impeached. On and on it went. It was trench warfare over Starrs every move. This history is relevant because it shows the forgetfulness of Donald Trumps critics, who seem to believe that its unprecedented for a special counsel to attract the ire of a presidents defenders. Robert Mueller may be motivated by a disinterested pursuit of the truth (tempered, one hopes, by an appropriate sense of limits), but his most ardent fans are rooting for any criminal infraction that, in their fevered dreams, will lead to President Trump getting frog-marched from the White House. The persistent fantasy that Trump can somehow be leveraged from office is behind the push to criminalize any blameworthy conduct on his part or that of his associates. It wasnt just bad form in pursuit of a foolish policy for incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn to talk to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about sanctions; it was a violation of the Logan Act. Don Jr.s notorious meeting with Russians wasnt just amateurish and ill-considered; it was a violation of a law against taking an in-kind contribution from a foreign national. Trumps withdrawn directive to fire Mueller wasnt merely a potentially catastrophic decision that he got talked out of; it was evidence of obstruction of justice. Very little cant be made to fit under this rubric. In his rebuttal to the Nunes memo, New York Democrat Jerry Nadler alleged that the document made Republicans an accessory to a crime part and parcel of Trumps effort to obstruct the Special Counsels investigation. Even in the worst case for Trump, Mueller is unlikely to charge him with a crime. There is longstanding Office of Legal Counsel guidance that its unconstitutional to indict a president while hes in office. The worst case for Trump is probably a report by Mueller that could become, in effect, an impeachment referral. Much will depend on the facts; on whether Mueller is willing to stand aside if he doesnt find anything to justify continued investigation; and who wins Congress this year and, if its the Democrats, by how much. But there can be little doubt that, in their hearts, most Democrats have decided for impeachment. The fighting now may be mere skirmishing compared with the larger political war to come.

For the foundations 30th anniversary, she proposed a Give Where You Live campaign, a 24-hour online (and in-person) fundraising dash benefitting a number of local charities. A lot of community foundations across the country do these campaigns, said Ms. Connolly-Keesler. I thought wed try it here and offer a $300,000 match. Her hope was to get another $300K from the community to meet the foundations matching goal. The one-day campaign raised $1.8 million. That went much better than we thought, Ms. Connolly-Keesler said with a laugh. Theyve upped the ante every year, raising just over $4 million in 2017, and hope to keep the trend going in 2018 with a $500,000 matching fund courtesy of the foundation and the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, which focuses on giving to organizations that meet basic human needs or education. This years Give Where You Live Collier takes place from noon Wednesday, Feb. 21, to noon Thursday, Feb. 22. Each of 38 participating nonprofits has a chance to earn at least $2,500 in matching funds; the Community Foundation guarantees a dollar-for-dollar match so that smaller organizations can hit that $5,000 plateau, with additional funds being matched based on the percentage of total funds raised among all the participants. We want to make sure even the smallest nonprofits get at least $5,000, Ms. Connolly-Keesler said. Some of the nonprofits on that list have participated since Give Where You Live started; a new one this year is the Foundation for the Developmentally Disabled. With a 35-year presence in Collier County, the foundation works with individuals age 18 and older who have developmental disabilities, providing a litany of educational initiatives, including quality-of-life programming, social and recreational activities, advanced life skills and artistic experiences from the visual arts to improv lessons. Were really excited because this is such a fantastic, community-wide philanthropic effort, Karen Govern, executive director of the foundation, said. Were honored to be a part of this program and grateful to the Community Foundation and the Schulze Foundation for making this possible. Ms. Govern said one area the Foundation for the Developmentally Disabled hopes to expand through additional fundraising is its Trailblazer Academy, an initiative started 18 months ago to help its clients receive group education and job training through local businesses. The goal is for clients to achieve competitive employment or a full-time volunteer position something that keeps them active and engaged in the community, she explained. Businesses involved in the program include Oakes Farms, Cosmos Pizzeria, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, The Naples Players and the Naples Therapeutic Riding Center.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYyou would be a millionaire, because the market is 50 percent, but you dont get one-tenth of 1 percent of the market. Mr. Vigliotti knows whereof he speaks. A retired career police officer from New York, he has trained hundreds of law enforcement officers in the rudiments of defensive tactics, firearms training, SWAT training and street survival. He has owned two dojos the last being the now-shuttered American Dragon Kenpo Karate Goshinjitsu school, which he helmed for more than a decade in Port Charlotte and has taught tactics derived mostly from the deadly martial art of kenpo to corporations, schools and other organizations. Most important, he has taught womens self-defense for three decades. His first class which he developed for Iona College in New York at its request after several students had been raped took him months of research. It was conducted in an auditorium with about 600 female students. Most of the program was a lecture but an animated lecture, he said with volunteers coming up on stage for demonstrations. But Mr. Vigliotti realized there was a proverbial fly in the ointment: The women didnt realize the gravity of what they were facing when they left the college campus. If I have no reason to learn this, why would I buy into it? is how he described the womens thinking. So he altered his tactics. Usually, the first hour of my lecture is about personal experiences, he explained. Not about someone elses personal experiences or Joe Blows statistics from the FBI, though I do use some statistical evidence. But I try to tell these women, or make them understand just how bad things can get. I relay some personal stories about rapes and homicides and what can happen. By the time the first hour is done, these women are terrified. Now they have a reason to give a shit about what they are learning that I am teaching. When Mr. Vigliotti first moved to Charlotte County, no one was teaching womens self defense, he said. So he took it upon himself to take up the gauntlet. He began teaching Awareness in SelfDefense for Women in 2003 at venues that included the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. He emphasizes there is a vast difference between a martial sport which he views as a style that focuses on participating in tournaments and vying for trophies and a martial art, which eschews tactics that might work in the safety of a dojo, but are ineffective on the harsh, brutal reality of the street. Womens self-defense (as a martial art), Mr. Vigliotti asserts, is a unique niche dominated by nobody on earth. What makes this so puzzling is that statistics seem to be in womens favor.Growing violenceLook at the world we live in right now, said Dale Phillips, crime prevention officer with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. Look at what is happening throughout our country. We have, in many ways, put ourselves in situations that never in our lives did we think would be dangerous walking down the street, walking into church, a grocery store, driving, taking your shopping cart out to a parking lot. When I first moved here, and I have been here 35 years, I never locked a door. Now I walk in that front door and I lock it. I dont carry a purse with my life in it. I teach women to carry only the minimal amount of things. We have purse-snatchers people who will just push you down, or who will drive through a parking lot and one person will reach out and just grab a purse from someone off their shoulder. Or theyll confront them out in the parking lot and demand something. What do those women do? They have to be empowered to take their own life in their hands and not be a victim. In the case of sexual assault in the United States, it is no longer an epidemic its a pandemic. According to a study cited by the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, an American is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds. That means more than 570 people are faced with sexual violence every day. On average, there are 321,500 victims (age 12 and up) of rape and sexual assault each year in the United States. One out of every six women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. And yet, 99 percent of the perpetrators of sexual violence will never see the inside of a prison cell. Even though women have made great strides in society, its truly unfortunate that, in spite of all of that, theyre still looked upon as the weaker sex, said Michelle Sargis, crime prevention practitioner with the Lee County Sheriffs Office. Just that, in itself, makes women more of a target for an attack. Mr. Vigliotti emphasized that this is not an issue of gender equality. You are not an equal when it comes to victimhood, he said. When I say one out of three women, as opposed to one out of 10 men, will be victims of violence, thats not chauvinistic. Its a statistic. And its big one. In 1989, it was one out of four women. Were moving in a bad direction. Theres now 30 percent more violence against women. Officer Phillips founded the Charlotte Sheriffs Office class after having taken a womens self-defense course herself through the Crime Prevention Unit. She wanted to bring similar training to the women of Charlotte, but didnt feel qualified enough, so she partnered with Al Shuman, owner of Shumans ATA Martial Arts, who has a sixth-degree black belt in taekwondo. From an initial class of about 15, classes (which are offered throughout the year) now cap out at 50, and they always fill up way in advance. Whether we like to admit it or not, the harsh reality is that crime can happen any time to any one at any place, Officer Phillips said. It is the nature of the beast in this day and age. We need to educate people. Claire Bury and Amie Conti had never taken a class before joining Officer Phillips class last month. Do I feel threatened? asked Ms. Bury. No. But every now and then, you hear about things happening. Ms. Conti agreed. I have never taken a self-defense class before but I have always wanted to, she said. They are teaching us to walk out of a grocery store and be more alert and aware, and not walk with your head down. These are common-sense things that we need to be reminded of, because violence does not happen just on TV it could happen in your own backyard. For my job, I go into strangers homes to do assessments. I do non-medical home health and there are times I go into homes and it is in the evening. The other morning, I went into a home at 7 a.m. and I didnt know the people. These situations are legit, but you need to be prepared, especially as a woman. I hate to say it not to sound chauvinistic but I dont know that I have the strength that a man has. But with these techniques, I feel much more secure. But how effective are the classes? Jocelyn A. Hollander with the Department of Sociology of the University of Oregon posed that question in a paper she published. Self-defense classes are offered across the nation as a strategy for reducing womens vulnerability to sexual assault, she writes, yet there has been little systematic research assessing the effectiveness of these classes. Studying a womens self-defense class and following up on those women a year later, Ms. Hollander concluded that women who participate in self-defense training are less likely to experience sexual assault and are more confident in their ability to effectively resist assault than similar women who have not taken such a class. A report commissioned by the National Institute of Justice examining a variety of sexual and other physical assaults against women bears that out.FIGHTINGFrom page 1Usually, the first hour of my lecture is about personal experiences ...

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15-21, 2018 NEWS A11SEE FIGHTING, A12 An article titled Self Defense Training Helps Stop Rape in Psychology Today noted that, There are decades of data, referenced by the National Institute of Justice, that support the effectiveness of self-defense, verbal and physical, in stopping rape and sexual assault. According to the NIJ, The researchers found that potential rape victims who resisted their attackers physically and verbally significantly reduced the probability that a rape would be completed and did not significantly increase the risk of serious injury. Most self-protective actions significantly reduce the risk that a rape will be completed. In particular, certain actions reduce the risk of rape more than 80 percent compared to nonresistance. The most effective actions, according to victims, are attacking or struggling against their attacker, running away, and verbally warning the attacker. In assaults against women, most self-protective tactics reduced the risk of injury compared to nonresistance. According to the researchers, the only selfprotective tactics that appear to increase the risk of injury significantly were those that are ambiguous and not forceful. These included stalling, cooperating and screaming from pain or fear. The implication is that, in order to be effective, a womans response to attack must be forceful. And therein lies the first challenge.Changing mindsetIn my personal opinion, said Collier County Sheriffs Office Sgt. Yesenia Jessie Pedraza, if you are not equipped to defend yourself then, by default, you are opening yourself up to be a victim. But for many women, the problem isnt the techniques of self-defense, but the attitude the belief that they can indeed defend themselves. For example, the Lee County Sheriffs Office offers a womens self-defense class on demand to groups that request it. The minimum amount of participants is eight; the maximum is 25. One of the biggest thing we try to do in the class is to get them thinking about their own personal self-defense to begin with, said Michelle Sargis, LCSO crime prevention practitioner. We have women who decide they really wouldnt participate because theyre not physically capable of defending themselves. We tell everyone that, regardless of your age, you can still defend yourself. You really do not have to be a Bruce Lee to keep yourself safe. Physical strength is really only 10 percent of the equation 90 percent is mental awareness. You need to have your head in the game. Mindset is more than the willingness to respond to violence with aggression. Much of it has to do with what the experts call situational awareness. Before we do a class, we give them all the safety precautions about being vigilant, going out at night by yourself situational awareness, Officer Phillips said. That is the first part of the class I do. You need to take these steps to deter this from happening in the first place. The second work is to detect. How are they going to learn to detect that something may be out of whack? I tell them to think of the Venus and Mars thing. Master Al thought I was crazy when I first said it, but I read the book. They say women feel, so I go on that premise. Men think, women feel. If you feel in your gut that something doesnt seem right when you walk out of the mall, turn around and walk back because, most of the time, that feeling is true. If there are suspicious persons near your vehicle in a dimly lit parking lot, and the best course of action would be for you to return to the store and ask for an escort to your vehicle, would you? If you were in a potentially dangerous situation, would you have the courage to do what it takes? Many ladies feel that when theyre faced with a situation, they will freeze in fear, Ms. Sargis said. Although many people may do that, no one will ever know how theyre going to respond to a situation until theyre faced with it. But we try to get people to really understand that you can prepare yourself and defend yourself. The biggest challenge from what I have seen is from the female perspective women are naturally nice and sometimes we are guided by how nice we are and polite, Sgt. Pedraza said. The perfect example we use in our class is you are in the parking garage and you are waiting for the elevator and when the elevator door opens up, there is someone in there, and your gut says, This doesnt feel right. Now, we ask the ladies (in the class), Who would get in the elevator? and the majority of the women raise their hands and say they would get in. My question to them is why. They say, I dont want to be rude. I always say, Who cares? If your gut is saying dont get in that elevator, say you forgot something or get on your phone real quick and say you have a call that wont allow you to get into the elevator, if you dont want to be rude.Time after timeIf I gave you a golf lesson with Tiger Woods for two or three hours, are you going to be able to play golf competitively? Mr. Vigliotti posed. If I give you a tennis lesson with Venus Williams, are you going to be a tennis player? How come nobody understands that (when it comes to self-defense training)? There is nothing you can do in four hours on a Saturday that is going to make you good at anything. The only thing you can do in four hours is to get a new perspective of what you are dealing with if something goes bad. Most of the instructors interviewed agreed that the most they could hope to accomplish is an introduction to womens self-defense the bare basics. Taking a solid course might be helpful, but is of limited value if the concepts are not practiced. James Helms is the Florida regional director of Rape Aggression Defense Systems, a nationwide organization that offers womens self-defense programs in 40 states. He realizes the time constraints women face. And RAD Systems aims to deal with that. If someone has the time, the years, to devote to martial arts discipline, more power to them, Mr. Helms said. Theres certainly not anything wrong with that; its a great thing. But the average, everyday woman doesnt have that time. She has a full-time job, shes got kids, shes got a family, so its difficult to fit that into an everyday schedule. RAD which is offered at numerous colleges around the nation, including Florida Gulf Coast University offers a 9to 12-hour program that covers risk reduction and awareness strategies. We talk about how to pay attention, what things are a risk in our environment, active steps we can take to reduce those risks, how to make certain activities safer: working out, going out to clubs, dating, internet safety with people youve never met, Mr. Helms said. We also devote a large portion of time because it takes longer to learn physical skills to teaching and practicing and becoming competent with physical defense strategies in our basic class. Part of the basics is teaching women to use their natural weapons: hands, fists, feet, knees, head and other body parts. After that, women can opt to take training for using aerosols (such as pepper spray or mace), key chains and other personal protection devices. The biggest challenge is getting them in the classroom, Mr. Helms said. People are so busy nowadays, asking somebody for 12 hours in this day and age is like asking for a limb. Everybodys busy with school and work and so forth. But once we get them in a class, Ive not heard anybody disappointed in the 20-odd years Ive done this. They see the value. Theyre investing in themselves.Shopping spreeThe list of martial arts styles reads like the menu of an overstocked Asian restaurant. Karate. Judo. Shotokan. Goju ryu. Kenyu ryu. Uechi ryu. Taekwondo. Hapkido. Kung fu. Kenpo. Kempo. Kendo. The list goes on, ad infinitum. It gets to sound like the old Danny Kaye song about Russian composers. So how is a woman supposed to choose? To start, the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault offers a four-page document, Guidelines for Choosing a SelfDefense Course, available at http://www. care.uci.edu/docs/Self-Defense_Guidelines.pdf. Beyond that, the good news is: Martial arts styles are not as important as the class itself. The class should specifically focus on self-defense. I would steer them away from martial arts and steer them towards the kinds of possible attacks and scenarios that could happen, said Alex Timin, owner of Impact Martial Arts in Naples. What would you do if the guy grabs you like this, and you have to break from me in a few seconds or less? You dont have a lot of time in self-defense. It has to work quickly. It has got to work for your age and your physical ability and your body type. I hope the instructor of the course knows there is a difference between the sport aspect of martial arts and the violent and realistic aspect of self-defense. I am a big fan of martial arts. I have done martial arts for a bunch of years.

I enjoy the activity. I enjoy the training. But not every aspect of martial arts is going to be applicable for saving your life in a really dangerous attack. I took taekwondo for a bunch of years and, though some of the moves in taekwondo could theoretically be used for self defense, I dont think I would teach them. Mr. Vigliotti expressed similar sentiments. If you are 4 foot 11 and weigh 93 pounds, with short, stumpy little legs, what are you going to do against a 6 foot 4 guy who weights 260? he asked. Youre going to give him a taekwondo kick and expect that to do what? Mr. Timin also notes that if a particular system is going to take several years for a student to feel proficient enough to be able to defend herself, its the wrong system for her needs. The best program may, in fact, include a mixture of styles. Mr. Vigliotti trained in numerous martial arts, including judo, before deciding on kenpo as his base system. Even then, he is critical about some of the systems shortcomings and techniques that wont work on the street. In addition, he has borrowed from numerous other systems, adopting a whatever works approach. Almost all the instructors gave one word of advice: Do your homework. I encourage anybody to do some research, Mr. Timin said.

To be able to emphasize the selfdefense aspect of his dojo, Mr. Timin keeps it separate from the martial arts section. He also gives a free introductory class, and follows it up with low-cost classes that will move women beyond the basics to defending against specific grabs and holds and, eventually, weapons. Any program must also take into account your level of fitness. Mr. Vigliotti cites jiujitsu essentially composed of joint locks and breaks and krav maga, a martial system taught to Israeli commandos, as examples of effective systems. The latters sole purpose is self-defense. However, he cautioned, to do it correctly takes a fair amount of physical conditioning, and that can be a drawback for some women who may not want to reach that level of conditioning. The ATA Black Belt Academy program that we offer teaches them stun and run, Officer Phillips explained. We dont teach them so that they get the attacker down, stomp on him, beat him up or anything. We want them to get them down long enough to run for help. Screaming doesnt always do that. You sometimes have to defend yourself. We have had people come in meek and mild and not so sure they are going to be able to do this course. I have a sore arm, I have a hip replacement, my knees are hurting me, I have arthritis and we explain to them it doesnt matter. You do what you can do, even if it is just going cuckoo, because I guarantee you, ladies, if that should happen to you, your adrenaline rush is going to kick in, you arent going to feel that sore shoulder or that sore leg. You are going to be fighting for your life, whatever it takes, by scratching, kicking, pulling, whatever to get away. And that is how they leave (the class). You have to do some research, just like you were buying a car, Mr. Vigliotti said. They all have a steering wheel and four wheels but they are not the same thing. A Ferrari is not a Volkswagen Bug. They dont serve the same purpose, so you have to pick something that works. You have to pick something that has a history of people using it for real. You cant be lazy. People are just lazy. People used to check the phone book now they check their computer and the school that is closest to them is the winner. I have said to many women that you want a class that is going to leave you feeling confident and able to defend yourself, said Sgt. Pedraza, You have to walk away from that class feeling confident and able to say, You know what? I can defend myself, be it physically or by outsmarting them with my mental ability. Mr. Helms is not alone in encouraging women who have been wanting to take a class to waste no time in getting started with self-defense. Stop waiting, he advised. Find something. Find someone who can competently relay skills to you and go out there and do it. Walking around and realizing you need a skill in something is the first step, but it doesnt solve the issue, whatever that issue may be. You have to go out and get the training.

Ms. Connolly-Keesler laughs a bit as she remembers starting Give Where You Live Collier, when she was unsure of its viability in a community already teeming with fundraising galas and events. She originally planned to reevaluate the initiative after five years. Despite its success leading up to the 2018, there is some debate among the foundation as to what to expect this year. Obviously, the hope is to top last years $4 million, but with Hurricane Irma wreaking havoc on the area, the concern is that many smaller donors from years past might not be in a position to give as much, if at all, right now. A lot of people have given $10, $15, $25 in the past, and that does make a big difference, Ms. Connolly-Keesler said. (Give Where You Live) is nice because everybody can be a philanthropist for a day. But the hurricane definitely had an impact on the community. Well see if we still have those smaller donors.

A24 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELSmaller engine and smaller cost might be your ideal JaguarTheres something new happening with the Jaguar F-Type, and its all about providing you with less. The coupe and convertible are now available with fewer cylinders and a lower cost. Jaguars new Ingenium 2.0-liter motor is pointing the way to the companys future. It produces an impressive 296 horsepower from a turbocharged fourcylinder unit. The power plant might seem sacrilegious to some because there has never been a Jaguar offered with fewer than six cylinders. Forgiving the four-cylinder models built under Jags predecessor, SS Cars, this first-ever four-banger is all about a performance motor for the modern world. The new F-Type doesnt lose the exceptionally sleek styling that comes on the more expensive and larger-motor models. Inside, it still receives a long list of standard features, including 12-way power seats, power steering column, Meridian speakers and an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation and Bluetooth. The real difference for this F-Type begins the moment the engine is started. The supercharged V6 and V8 models are angry machines. They fire up with a rumble that makes the driver feel intimidated into constantly going faster. The 2.0-liter turbo is less furious. It has a spirited exhaust note, but it doesnt sound like it wants to eat all the lesser machines on the road. This tamer cat attitude is felt throughout the car. For example, the ultrahot 575 horsepower SVR version of the F-Type can triple most legal highway speeds, but in urban traffic, its more about keeping the beast controlled. Instead, the 2.0-liter needs more accelerator pedal travel to get the driver in trouble, and the experience feels less intense.But this cat is also not fully domesticated. The turbocharged motor doesnt have the same immediate power as supercharged cars, but pegging the accelerator to the floor still releases the animal within. It growls like a Jaguar should, and the world begins to move in fast-forward. Holding up the lower end means the 2.0-liter model misses out on options like a manual transmission and all-wheel drive. Still, it receives what is arguably the F-Types best driving attribute the torque vectoring technology that makes it feel nimbler in performance driving situations.With a base price of $60,895, the Jaguar comes close to the Porsche 718 Boxster/Cayman. Its also within 8 percent of the Chevrolet Corvette. The 455 horsepower Chevy will show the turbo Jag its taillights in any street race, but thats not the whole point. Part of a Jaguar sports cars allure comes from the sleek design and a little mystique from a history of world champion racers. Never in modern times has this been so affordable. In fact, the 2.0-liter coupe is half the price of the SVR model that represents the top dog in the F-Type lineup. While there is 279 hp separating these two bookends, not everyone is going to be able to discern the few visual differences. So, is Jaguar diluting its sports car range by making a more affordable version of its flagship coupe and convertible? Likely not. The Chevrolet Corvette is not only a competitor to the 2.0-liter Jaguar, its also a good example of how the F-Type line will mature. Fifty years ago, Chevy offered its sports car with both a big block and a small block V8. Multiple carburetor and transmission configurations meant there was a total of 11 ways to option from mild to wild. Just like the F-Type, these cars had few exterior visual cues to differentiate the power levels. Today, a base 1968 Chevrolet Corvette 327 small block commands about half the price of a comparable L71 big block classic. It doesnt mean that in half a century the Jaguar F-Type will handsomely repay those who went for the powerful and exclusive SVR. But this does point to a vintage car market that knows how to distinguish engine size. Thus, there is a place in the automotive world for a more entry-level F-Type without tarnishing the overall premium image. No one ever praises a sports car company for making the gentlest machine around. However, with the SVR firmly holding up the hardcore image of the F-Type, the 2.0 turbo is a tamer Jag built for more everyday appeal. This isnt the one that gets tucked away to bank a retirement savings, but it also wont cost you your 401K to purchase it. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Sound Minds symposium examines impact of the digital age on childrens mental health SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe David Lawrence Center, the Naples Children & Education Foundation and Collier County Public Schools host the fifth annual Sound Minds Mental Health Symposium from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at Moorings Presbyterian Church. This years event is designed to bring parents, grandparents, health-care professionals, educators and kids together for a meaningful dialogue that leads to personal revelation and powerful positive change in homes, schools and communities. The symposium will feature a screening of physician, parent and filmmaker Delaney Rustons awardwinning documentary Screenagers, which probes the vulnerable corners of family life and depicts the messy struggles over social media, video games, Internet addiction and academics. Screenagers emerged directly from a challenge I was facing in my own life raising teenagers whose attention was increasingly consumed by screen-based activities, Dr. Ruston says. As a physician, I became increasingly anxious to know how our new tech world affects childrens development. The Stanford-trained physician studied many aspects of filmmaking with a particular focus on film as a vehicle for social change. She uses filmmaking as a platform for advocacy and has partnered with groups such as National Alliance on Mental Illness and the World Health Organization. In addition to Screenagers, which explores the impact of video gaming and social media on self-esteem, empathy, social skills development, academics and brain development, she has produced Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia, about her father, and Hidden Pictures, about global mental health, both for PBS. Dr. Ruston is currently the Filmmakerin-Residence at the Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care and Bioethics at Stony Brook Medicine, New York. A discussion with Lisa Tabb, the films executive producer, will follow the screening. The mother of two teens, Ms. Tabb has more than 25 years of experience developing content for television, web and print specializing in parenting, travel, consumer issues and daily news. Prior to becoming a documentary film producer, she spent 15 years producing the news at ABC 7 News in San Francisco, with a focus on trends around parenting, raising kids and emerging technologies. The Sound Minds Mental Health Symposium is appropriate for children 10 years of age and older. CEUs are available for professionals. RUSTON TABB The fth annual Sound Minds Mental Health Symposium>> When: 3-5 p.m. Saturday, March 24 >> Where: Moorings Presbyterian Church >> Cost: Suggested $10 donation >> More: VIP reception with Lisa Tabb from 5-7 p.m. includes wine, hors doeuvres and music for $125.

CONSIGNMENTS & FINE FURNISHINGS FOR YOUR HOME CREATING LIVABLE, FUN SPACES PET TALESDown for the count BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWhen Rosemary George had a hip replacement five years ago, she sent her three collies and 15-year-old terrier-mix to stay with various people, expecting to have them back home within a few weeks of surgery. Instead, a serious postsurgical infection kept her hospitalized for weeks, culminating in five additional surgeries. She was finally able to go home, although she was still sick and weak, unable to drive for months. Sherman, her terrier-mix, boarded with a pet sitter for three months while she recuperated. A friend was finally able to bring him home to her, but the prolonged stay was the beginning of a downward spiral for the geriatric dog. Her collie Bridget was away from home for six months, Shayna for nine months and Mick for nearly a year. Georges experience is an extreme example of what can go wrong when pet owners get a bad case of the flu, break a bone or develop complications after surgery. Without a plan and friends who can pitch in, its all too easy for pet lovers to be stymied in caring for their animals. I could never have managed to get through this horrible time, which is known to family and friends as the hip replacement from hell, without the help of so many, many kind and generous dog friends, George says. And you know what? As horrible as the experience was, the worst part was being separated from my dogs for so long. Ill never get that time back. Its easier with cats, but their care in a postsurgical situation still requires planning and preparation. Barbara Cole Miller, who recently underwent knee-replacement surgery, left her cat Piper at home with plenty of food and water during the day and night she was hospitalized. She knew from past experience that Piper didnt do well being boarded. The amount of food and water she left out ensured that she didnt have to worry about getting around to feed Piper for more than a week. My primary concern when I came home was scooping the litter box, she says. Knee replacement patients are warned to reach only between knees and shoulders. Miller was able to scoop Pipers box almost immediately but was still concerned about the possibility of falling. Visiting friends helped as well. Young and highly active dogs pose a different problem for injured or ill people who arent able or willing to have their dogs stay somewhere else. Tracy Weber, a yoga teacher in Seattle, broke her collarbone recently, which has put her in a sling for a couple of months. Because of the high risk of falling, it will be another three months before she can take her 18-monthold German shepherd, Ana, for walks. The experience is taking a toll on both of them. A friend comes over and plays with Ana, but Weber is reluctant to hire a dog walker because Ana is skilled at slipping out of her harness and doesnt always come when called. Ive been doing some clicker training with her to train her to do new things and make her focus more, Weber says. My husband is taking her for a half-hour walk every night. Im using treat toys so she has to play to get her treats out. Im also using lots of chews, but its not easy. After a horse in a hurry for breakfast knocked down Gina Spadafori, causing her to fall and break her wrist, she called on a cast of friends and neighbors to help care for her four dogs, two horses, four goats and a dozen chickens; hired someone to clean the house; and had her dogs do tricks, play with puzzle toys and practice indoor heeling and long downs to keep their minds engaged. The key is not being ashamed or reluctant to ask for help, because youre probably going to need it, she says. Pets of the Week>> Ebony is a spayed adult domestic shorthair.

Get the home state advantage. Door to Door or convenient drop off at SW FLorida AirportWhats more frightening than Trump? The fluThis morning, I woke up with the sniffles and a headache. Now I prepare to die. Last night, I watched the news, and while I had made a New Years resolution to try to stay news-free, something drew me back in. No, it wasnt Donalds shenanigans or the crazy dictator in North Korea. It was something even scarier: the flu epidemic. When I heard you could actually perish from the flu, I started tuning in to Lester Holt on NBC again. Nearly every night, he reports that healthy young people are sometimes only lasting two or three days with the flu. Its heart wrenching. And every time I see yet another report (Seven More Dead from Flu Epidemic), I gulp down yet another dose of preventative Emergen-C and admonish myself for not getting a flu shot even though Lester tells me the shot doesnt work on ALL strains of the flu. Public Service Announcement: All the local doctors Ive spoken with still recommend the flu shot as the best way to avoid getting the flu. So, theres that. Meanwhile, Ive been fastidious. Short of wearing a hazmat suit, I have been Howard Hughes-like in my recent germaphobia. I dont shake hands with people, I certainly dont hug, I have antibacterial hand wipes in my purse and I back them up with a squirt of Purell. If Im in Publix and I see someone cough or sneeze in the same aisle Im in, I take my cart and sprint to another area of the store as I m utter to myself airborne virus, airborne virus, get to safe place The thing is, getting sick and having to stay home and watch Netflix all day while sipping hot rum toddies is one thing. Sudden death because I forgot to wash my hands with warm soapy water after touching a public doorknob is another. Thats just not even fair. I keep trying to come up with other reasons these seemingly healthy humans are having such dire consequences from the flu, but the news anchors tell me that its simple: They waited too long to see a doctor. Im sorry, but we live in Southwest Florida during both flu and snowbird season, where getting a last-minute doctors appointment is like winning the Powerball. I would happily ignore my sniffles and headache if it werent for the fact that a friend whos younger than I am ended up in the cardiac unit because she coughed herself into a dangerous respiratory episode she was in the hospital for a week on IV antibiotics and endured test after test. Shes doing fine now plus she lost 20 pounds but the flu diet is not the one I want to sign up for. So, I did manage to get a doctors appointment and hopefully, it will just cost me a good chunk of change to discover that the only thing Im plagued with is the sniffles and a headache. Stay healthy, readers. Avoid coughers and sneezers, wash your hands, get your flu shots. And if youre feeling poorly, listen to your body and get medical help. And if my advice isnt good enough, just watch Lester at 6:30 every evening. Hell scare you into watching your health. Trust me. stephanieDAVIS sdavis@floridaweekly.com

They have sometimes been cross-bred with other dogs. may actually be a bit high, writes Janice Koler-Matznick, president of the conservation society. There is little information about these dogs in the wild, though the society is starting a preliminary eld study in the Papua New Guinea mountains. There are possibly 2,000-3,000 wild Singers living there above 4,000 feet throughout the mountain ranges, above where people generally live, Ms. KolerMatznick writes. Because they are concentrated in one area, this population is especially vulnerable to environmental hazards such as logging or mining, she adds. Their howl is a form of communication heard especially at dawn and dusk, says Ms. Koler-Matznick, as well as in captivity when they want attention. Any group of canids may all howl at the same time, but only the Singers coordinate their calls, harmonizing with each other and adjusting up and down scale, then abruptly stopping almost together, she says. Their chorus, she adds, is beautiful and melodic. distinct from Australian dingoes, and also shar e char acteristics with gray wolves and coyotes. Although they can make wonderful pets for some, Singer advocates say, their high prey drive for instance, a tendency to kill small animals such as birds or unfamiliar cats and sense of independence makes them too hard to handle for casual owners. People who just thought they were cool pets sometimes give them up to shelters. Shy Wolf Sanctuary in Naples rescued two Singers from a shelter in Harris County, Texas, in November. The sanctuarys executive director, Deanna Deppen, is caring for them at her home in Naples. The female, 7-year-old Clara, and male, 5-year-old Hunter, are litterbox trained. These animals are very catlike in that theyre independent and they willingly use the litterbox, Ms. Deppen says. Clara and Hunter sometimes sing when feeling stressed, she adds. Theyll sing on the way to the vets of ce. Hunter is mostly blind in one eye and has lost some sight in the other, and Clara is being treated for heartworms. Otherwise, they are healthy. Although they might one day be ambassadors, taken to events to help educate people about Singers, Ms. Deppen thinks they might be too shy for that role. If so, the pair will live out their lives at her house. At this point theyre just so fearful, I dont want to traumatize them, she says. With excellent jumping and digging capabilities, Singers can easily escape without proper precautions such as fencing and they probably would not come back. They are typically shy, but not aggressive, toward people and affectionate once they get to know you. You dont own a New Guinea Singing Dog, and theyre not a pet, says Gayle Person of Melbourne, who has two female Singers names Nora and Asha and a male named Motu. You co-exist with them. They dig like crazy, and they can climb fences and trees, she adds. I call them cat dogs. They are extremely smart. You have to give them the respect theyre due You dont take them to dog parks, and you dont take them to PetSmart. Theyre not that kind of dog. But they are wonderful, sweet dogs with their owners. The New Guinea Singing Dog Conservation Society, a nonpro t started in 1997 that aims to preserve the Singer population, provides a ball-park guess that there are 300 captive Singers worldwide including in zoos, sanctuaries, DOGSFrom page 1 >> FWCs Captive Wildlife Of ce says Singers will be classi ed as Class III exotic wildlife. The change, which aligns with federal rules, means that the few who have a Singer for exhibition or sale, such as a zoo, will need to acquire a license. If you own one as a personal pet, youll need a no-cost permit from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. If you have a Singer, but no longer want it, contact FWCs Exotic Pet Amnesty Program by email or PetAmnesty@MyFWC.com or by calling 888-483-4681.

Its a huge part of the economy that gets very little press, said Javier Fuller, a volunteer instructor for SEE BOOST, A34 BUSINESS PROFILE Andrew Hill had spent a decade in corporate trust banking when he realized that industry wasnt for him. So in 2010, he returned to his roots of serving others, opening Andrew Hill Investment Advisors Inc. in Naples with his longtime business associate and fellow advisor, Jennifer Figurelli. A native of Toronto, Mr. Hill he moved to New Jersey with his family at a young age and lived there for the 10 years his father worked in Manhattan. Being on the edge of New York City, Id say I had a multifaceted upbringing, he says. He was the enterprising sort from an early age. His first job was in fact one that he created: He opened a landscaping company at 18 years old. It was for his senior high school project, but it took off as a full-fledged business. He was able to hit a particular market and landed a couple of decent contracts that kept things running things through his undergrad years at the Jesuit school of Canisius College. Jesuits are taught to serve others, he said of his experience at the school. Mr. Hill would go on to earn his MBA at Syracuse University in 1990 and then started working at a corporate trust bank, where the focus is on corporate profits and not acting in the clients best interest. I became disenchanted, he said. Venturing out to open his own firm simply continued a natural trend of betting on himself. We got started with just a few clients, he said of Andrew Hill Investment Advisors Inc. We ended the first year (2010) with $11 million under management. We now have at least 90 client relationships. He cites his experience living near the Love Canal as influencing his approach to investing.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. How to Ruin Your RetirementToo many people are preparing for retirement solely by saving some money and hoping it will be enough. That can lead to disaster. Improve your retirement by avoiding the following common mistakes: 1. Having no clue about how much money youll need. Online tools at apps. finra.org/calcs/1/retirement and ssa.gov/ retire2 can help you plan. 2. Not saving enough. Saving 10 percent of your salary often isnt enough. Fifteen to 20 percent might be needed to reach your goals. 3. Ignoring asset allocation. Your longterm money is likely to grow fastest in stocks, not bonds or bank accounts. Consider low-fee index funds for bonds and stocks. 4. Cashing in your 401(k) early. A third or more of workers do this, often when changing jobs, and it leaves them less to live on later. Instead, consider rolling over that money to an IRA, where it can continue growing in a tax-advantaged manner. 5. Spending your retirement nest egg too quickly. Dont risk running out of money while you still need it. Have a withdrawal plan that will make your money last. Consider fixed annuities. (Variable and indexed annuities are more problematic.) 6. Retiring too soon. Retire early only if you have enough money to do so. If youre in your 60s, you still may have two or three decades ahead of you, so plan conservatively and be sure to factor in health care, which could cost you thousands of dollars annually. Explore part-time or project work that you might take on in retirement. 7. Getting bad, or no, advice. Retirement planning is a huge and critical undertaking, and theres no shame in seeking help with it. Favor fee-only financial advisers over ones who might have conflicts of interest, through earning sales commissions. (Find fee-only advisers at napfa.org.) Learn much more at fool.com/retirement/index.aspx and money.cnn.com/ retirement, and try our Rule Your Retirement newsletter for free via fool.com/services. It offers solid, concise advice, along with stock and fund recommendations. A Humbling MistakeI keep my dumbest investment as a reminder of what a true pump-and-dump stock is. I will never sell it at this point, why bother? I have 49,600 shares valued at ... $0.0001 per share. The experience has made me think twice before I hit the buy button, and I often go back and double-check everything before I buy any stock. Luckily for me, it wasnt a very costly mistake just a humbling one. J.W.S., onlineThe Fool Responds: Youre not alone in having fallen for a penny stock (one trading for less than about $5 per share). The numbers can seem appealing, such as if you can get 50,000 shares for just $1,000, when a stock trades for $0.02 per share. It can seem very unlikely that the stock will fall further, but as youve found out, it can. Pump-and-dump schemes are rampant with penny stocks. A manipulator buys shares in a penny stock and then hypes it online or in newsletters, luring others into buying the stock and sending the share price up. Then the manipulator sells his shares, sending the stock sharply down, and burning those who fell for the hype. Many penny stocks are tied to small, speculative companies with no track record of profitability or reliable growth. Steer clear. Remember that $300 shares of a healthy company can soar over time, while a $0.05 stock can still plunge. Big Blue Gushes GreenIBM (NYSE: IBM) has been around for more than a century, and its setting itself up for many more decades of serious business. The company has seen a decline in its core business due to cloud-computing technologies, but a turnaround seems to be underway. CEO Ginni Rometty has identified high-growth, next-gen technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence and mobile tech as IBMs path forward, calling them strategic imperatives. In the companys last quarter, revenue grew by almost 4 percent year over year, helped by a 17 percent jump in strategic imperatives sales, to $11.1 billion. A whopping 49 percent of IBMs total revenue in the quarter was generated by strategic imperatives segments. Meanwhile, IBMs dividend payouts have seen uninterrupted increases since 1995, through thick and thin. Over the same period, IBM spent more than $115 billion on share buybacks another method of shoveling cash flows directly into investors pockets. (The companys dividend yield was recently 3.7 percent.) Big Blue is dedicated to rewarding shareholders: It has been known to take on more debt in order to finance dividends and buybacks when cash flow runs low. Thats not an issue today, though, since IBMs trailing12-month free cash flow stands at $11 billion. In recent quarters, 30 percent of that cash went to share buybacks, while 50 percent was earmarked for dividend checks. I trace my roots back to 1876, an era of questionable healing elixirs, when a Civil War veteran and pharmacist founded me in order to make high-quality medicines. In 1923 I introduced the worlds first commercially available insulin product, in 1955 I w as the first to make and distribute the Salk polio vaccine globally, and in 1986 I launched Prozac to treat depression. Today, based in Indianapolis and with a market value recently near $90 billion, Im a global health care giant with more than 40,000 employees, over 9,000 of whom work in research and development. Who am I? (Answer: Eli Lilly) 401(k)? YesQShould I contribute to a 401(k)? J.R., Columbus, OhioADefinitely consider it if your employer offers one. With a traditional 401(k), your employer plunks a portion of your salary that you specify into the account. That contribution comes from pre-tax income. So if your taxable income is $50,000 for the year and you contribute $5,000 to your 401(k), your taxable income will fall to $45,000. Your tax bill will be smaller, and youll have some pre-tax dollars invested for the future. Your contributions will grow untaxed until you withdraw them in retirement, as you must generally do starting at age 70. Then theyre taxed at your ordinary income rate. Money in a 401(k) can usually be invested in a variety of things. We recommend broad-market stock index funds, such as ones based on the S&P 500. It can be good to balance that with some bonds, too, but less so the further you are from retirement. Best of all, many employers match a portion of your 401(k) contributions. If your company does so, make the most of it thats free money! Note, too, that you may also be able to opt for a Roth 401(k) plan, where your contributions are post-tax and withdrawals in retirement are taxfree. ***QI know inflation decreases the value of money over time. Is there any upside to it? N.R., Spokane, WashingtonAHeres one: If youre making fixed mortgage payments, inflation can make the dollar value of those payments worth less over time. For example, if youre earning $50,000 annually now and paying $1,000 per month, that $1,000 will be a smaller portion of your income in 15 years, if your salary grows along with inflation.

He also serves on the FGCU resort and hospitality management advisory board. WALTZER FITCH GRANT MOELLER ON THE MOVE ESG investing, which stands for environmental, social and governance. When we educate about investing, we highlight the characteristics of those issues, Mr. Hill explained. Its integrated into our research process. A renowned chef has his recipe for preparing a meal well, we do the same thing with the various financial characteristics we look for. When choosing companies to invest in for clients, Mr. Hill and his team add an extra layer of vetting aside from the traditional analysis through a chartered financial analyst program. They evaluate a companys ESG attributes, discerning the firms cognizance of its responsibility to the environment and communities it works in. There is significant academic research time and corporate financial performance going in to ESG, Mr. Hill said. It just makes sense to invest in companies that are more responsible. Governance is the most important and easiest tie to financial market performance. He believes companies with weak governance are shown to underperform, or at least eventually have their value crater after a public relations fiasco. He cited Chipotle as a recent example. At one time we owned shares in it, then after some detailed research we noticed they were having some charges come up against them for labor issues that didnt get a lot of press we got out. Chipotles value on the New York Stock Exchange was nearly $750 in 2015. Today it sits at about $255 per share. These ESG principles all go back to the trust between client and advisor, something Mr. Hill and Ms. Figurelli emphasize with their clients. Mr. Hill utilizes Fidelity Investments, a family-owned company on the Forbes 100 list, as a third-party custodian, further emphasizing the need to protect not only his clients, but those in his company as well, against foul play. Its very important that any independent investment advisors are held in custody with a third party, he said. Without it, he added, Thats how the Ponzi guys can get away with it they would manage and control the investments. With Fidelity involved, that eliminates the opportunity. Mr. Hill and his team continue to create sustainable opportunities to do what any self-respecting member of the financial industry wants to do for his clients. Were not doing all this to make friends or be nice, he said. Were doing it to make money, for everyone.An interview with Andrew HillBusiness mentor: Martin Zweig, who passed away in 2013. He had a weekly financial report called The Zweig Forecast. He was so technical in his investment analysis, and he based everything on probabilities of success He was an academic, and I idolized him. What would you be doing if you werent doing this? I have no idea its all I know! My first hope was to play in the National Hockey League, but that didnt happen. After my hockey days ended I started to read the Wall Street Journal, and here I am. Advice for someone starting out in your field: Be as technically competent as you can, and always act in the clients best interests. Learn how to present your services in an ethical and business-like manner, and be involved in your community. Favorite business book: Graham & Dodds Security Analysis. Also, The Extraordinary and Popular Delusion and the Madness of Crowds. Its about all the crazy things people have done in society. Any job openings? Not quite yet, but if we secure a few more relationships, well need more support soon. FOCUSFrom page 31

A34 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYGoodwills MicroEnterprise Institute in Southwest Florida. Micro-entrepreneurs are often firsttime business owners who lack training and access to start-up funds, which range from a few thousand dollars to about $50,000. Local nonprofits, including Goodwill, and the Center for Enterprise Opportunity (CEO), a financial services agency in Palm Beach County, provide services for the smallest start-ups. By offering training, mentorship and support, including with qualifying for small loans, theyre helping give flight to a wide range of businesses. It runs the gamut, said Lia Gaines, executive director of CEO, before noting some of the micro or main-street type businesses that CEO has provided services for include florists, occupational therapists, food trucks, a hair salon, CPAs, auto repair and moving companies. Well work with a client until they can get to both business readiness and loan readiness, she said. That may include help with getting one of CEOs loans through the U.S. Small Business Administration or other micro-lenders instead of traditional banks which, she said, often dont provide the smallest of business loans. Its just not very efficient for them to do so, she said. In addition, they want to see historical to do their underwriting, so it doesnt fit the mode and model of how they do credit worthiness. CEO also matches clients with mentors, business owners in the community, who provide operational as well as financial coaching to accompany a loan. When CEO began in the mid 1990s it was sometimes seen as a lender of last resort, Ms. Gaines said, but thats changed as entrepreneurs become aware of the help they provide along with a loan. People are learning that they can come to us first, not necessarily as the lender of last resort, she said. In 2010, Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida started its MicroEnterprise Institute, which provides entrepreneurs with a six-week training program for $80. It requires them to create a business feasibility study and learn an array of skills from marketing to tax returns. During twice-weekly meetings in the evening, these potential entrepreneurs work closely with a volunteer class instructor as well as coaches who mentor groups of students. More than 645 people have graduated the MicroEnterprise Institute. It began with classes held only in Lee County before growing to include Charlotte and Collier county locations, and continues to find support from community partners. In January, Bank of the Ozarks donated $7,500 to help fund it. Bank of the Ozarks understand the importance of small and micro businesses as a source of family financial security, job creation and community economic revitalization, said Southwest Florida division president Jeremy Fioravanti, in a press release. Although the MicroEnterprise Institute is promoted as a training and not necessarily a funding opportunity, students are often assisted with acquiring loans, as well. Recently, Goodwill has worked with a nonprofit, crowdfunded loan provider called Kiva which provides qualifying recipients with no-interest loans of up to $10,000. Amber Unger, who owns Port Charlotte-based A&R Tree Service with her husband, Robert, graduated from Goodwills program in 2016. With three employees, they offer services to help maintain trees, shrubs and lawns, as well as provide storm damage cleanup, from Cape Coral to Bradenton. Ms. Unger appreciated the guest speakers that were brought in to provide instruction for an array of small business concerns. They had bankers and attorneys and all kinds of different people come in to touch base with every aspect of where you needed to go, she said. The Ungers have three children, ages 11, 9 and 7, who may one day work for or help run A&R. We just wanted to grow a business to where our kids can do something when they get bigger, Ms. Unger said. Christine Richardson, founder and president of Naples-based Horizon Buying Group, said attending the MicroEnterprise Institute in 2017 was the single best thing I did for my business. With four employees, Horizon is a cooperative buying group whose members are small to mid-size food service equipment dealers. As a member of Horizon, Ms. Richardson explained, they can enjoy the purchasing power of much larger suppliers who can afford to buy in bulk from manufacturers. Although Ms. Richardson had two decades of experience working in the buying group industry when she started Horizon last year, she knew nothing about how to run my own business or prepare a business plan, she said. Do I need a CPA? A tax attorney? I didnt even know where to begin, it was so overwhelming. In addition to giving me information, the whole MicroEnterprise class gave me confidence. Ultimately, she said, the program helps potential entrepreneurs like her find out if their dream can make a viable profit. Members of the class used a program called LivePlan to create a business plan. It also allowed her to create a presentation in order to get a loan from a bank. Elias Scioli, operator of Dairy Free Island Smoothie Bar with his girlfriend, owner Katie Jones, took Goodwills course in 2015. The Lee County-based food truck offers smoothies, breakfast bowls, parfaits and other treats, with vegan and allergen-friendly options. By the end of the course you have your business plan together, he said. Then youre able to put in a submission for a loan. Dairy Free Island qualified for a micro-loan at a 2 percent interest rate. That along with help from relatives paid for start-up costs such as outfitting the truck to proper specifications, permits, food liability insurance and advertising. For a small business owner without the capital to buy expensive traditional ads, taking advantage of Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and other social media has been a key method of getting the word out about his food truck. Among his biggest takeaways from the Goodwill course: advertise, advertise, advertise and network. Many micro-entrepreneurs, such as Yamila Diaz, run home-based businesses. Ms. Diaz, owner and operator of Extra Sweet Spot, makes her gourmet chocolates and specialty sweets at home in Cape Coral, which is allowed under Floridas Cottage Food Law. She graduated from Goodwills course last year and opened for business in November with the help of a micro-grant. She sells her sweets at the Sanibel Island Farmers Market and other events, as well as on her website. The Cottage Law restricts her gross sales to $50,000 per year and means she cant sell wholesale. Its a good way to start sl owly, she said. Later on, she plans to expand in to a storefront shop and feature a wider range of sweets such as ice cream and Spanish specialties. That includes Yemis, her own take on her grandmotherin-laws recipe, made with eggs, sugar, cinnamon and chocolate. Ive been making chocolates for friends and family for a long time, over 10 years, she said. When I had my baby, I figured I wanted to do some kind of business where I could support her and stay home at least a majority of the time. Goodwill reports that since 2014, 75 percent of the graduates from its institute are still in business and creating jobs for 118 people.

B18 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays Clubhouse A phenomenal amenity Strong sales recorded in Tower 2 If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays clubhouse will surely be one of the busiest places in the gated, luxury residential high-rise community currently being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. There are several reasons buyers have decided to purchase at Kalea Bay, said Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. The first is the beautifully designed three-bedroom plus den/three-and-a-half-bath and four-bedroom/four-bath tower residences with Gulf views. The other is our spectacular main amenity area, which includes our community clubhouse. Not only is it a dramatic sight as residents and visitors drive into the community, but its now the envy of every community in the Naples area. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot main amenity area, which opened in early January, is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. The clubhouse features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an openair bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, a lakeside fire pit, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Lodge. The indoor/outdoor restaurant serves incredible meals throughout the day. And 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. 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. Guest suites that can accommodate overnight guests and family members are also located nearby. Residents also have a shuttle service that originates from the clubhouse and takes them to the beach. Two of the top-rated beaches in the country are only minutes away from Kalea Bay, stated Lodge. They include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and DelnorWiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The completion of the main amenity area at Kalea Bay coincided with the completion the communitys first residential tower. Closings in Tower 1 started at the beginning of January, stated Lodge. To date, weve closed approximately 100 of the towers 120 residences. The completion of Tower 1, and the commencement of closings, came just weeks after the buildings rooftop amenities were completed. Those amenities include the rooftop pool, which is surrounded by comfortable chaise lounges, dining tables and chairs, and plush conversation areas, the sky lounge, and an open-air 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. A few residences remain in Tower 1, however more residences are available in Tower 2. The 22-story tower, with 120 homes, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet.

The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted.

B30 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBabcock Ranch: A return to the front porch lifestyleBabcock Ranch is bringing back the front porch and its an integral component of the solar-powered towns unique lifestyle. A dozen model homes are now open daily in the Lake Timber neighborhood and emphasize that get-to-know-yourneighbors experience with front porches, some spanning the entire length of the homes and others wrapping around the front of the home. Most of us grew up somewhere else and lived in homes with front porches, said Syd Kitson, Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners and the visionary behind the innovative community with sustainability woven right into its infrastructure. It was a destination, the place youd sit with your family after dinner, read the Sunday newspaper over a cup of coffee, and interact with your neighbors and people walking down the street. Were creating that connection as part of Babcock Ranchs hometown lifestyle. Front porches build a sense of community. The architectural standards of the town located just northeast of Fort Myers off of State Road 31 were developed with a nod to the past, incorporating features historically found in Southwest Floridas pre-WWII homes. Front porches were more of a necessity in those days before air conditioning, keeping direct sunlight from the house and funneling breezes inside. The concept easily translated to Kitson & Partners vision of a town proving that high-tech smart growth can pair beautifully with hometown charm and environmental preservation. We pride ourselves on our outdoor living spaces, and historically, the focus has been on the back of the home, said Claudine Lger-Wetzel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Stock Development, which has completed five models at Babcock Ranch. We embraced the whole concept of front porch living at Babcock Ranch and created models to show buyers very livable floor plans that showcase outdoor living in both the front and the back of the home. Ken Fox, Founder and Principal of Fox Premier Builders, traveled to South Carolina for inspiration for his floor plans, finding it in the gracious southern architecture with large porches. The result is model homes with wrap-around porches for front-door living, he said. You can sit on your front porch, have a glass of wine, look at the lake and meet your neighbors. The homes become very friendly and family-oriented. Babcock Ranchs homes also connect residents to nature, with views of large lakes and neighborhood parks and access to more than 50 miles of planned biking, hiking and walking trails. Eventually, the trails will loop around the towns footprint and link to the adjoining 73,000acre Babcock Ranch Preserve, the site of the original ranch that is now stateowned conservation land. In addition to the Preserve, half of the towns 18,000 acres have been set aside for green space, conservation areas and nature preserves. Homes in Lake Timber are just a short walk to Founders Square, the downtown district designed like a traditional Main Street with a neighborhood school, Slaters Goods & Provisions, Square Scoops Coffee & Creamery, health & wellness center, and a wide variety of activities from concerts and picnics to exercise classes. Buildings in Founders Square also have front porches and rocking chairs that invite passersby to sit a spell. The core vision of creating an authentic hometown experience with nature as an important part of the equation was accomplished through diligent design and development strategies and a promise to take stewardship, sustainability, preservation and restoration to the next level. Kitson & Partners realized its mission through renewable solar power, energy and water conservation, an emphasis on native plants and materials, tree preservation and relocation, and an insistence on using sustainable local materials. The towns homes and downtown buildings are built to Florida Green Building standards. Something as simple as an ageold design principal like a front porch imparts a sense of hometown and community and Babcock Ranchs seven homebuilders embraced the vision. We love the whole concept of Babcock Ranch and the front porch lifestyle, which were taking through the home, said Kitt Kearney, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Homes by Towne. Visitors are really enjoying our floor plans. Weve always offered outdoor living in the back. This is one of the first homes weve done with a porch on the front. We designed our floor plans exclusively for Babcock Ranch, said J. Dennis Miehle, president for Castle Harbour Homes. One has a front porch spanning the full length of the home and an inner atrium without a roof you can actually have a garden inside your home. It also has decks and balconies in the back. National builder Pulte Homes began pre-sales of its Lake Timber alley-loading garage homes in November. Placing the garage in the back naturally lends itself to a front porch pushed to the sidewalks. Our alley-loaded neighborhood has beautiful porches overlooking Lake Babcock, said Pultes Marc Taglieri. We worked to ensure our homes would appeal to a variety of homebuyers, said Bill Ennen of Florida Lifestyle Homes, which is currently offering a new electric car for the purchase of The Lauren model home in Babcock Ranch. We are focused on reinforcing the unique aspects of Babcock Ranch that have made it such an interesting and vibrant new town sustainability, environmental stewardship and renewable energy. Lennar, another national builder, is offering twin villas and single-family executive and manor homes at Trails Edge, the towns second neighborhood. Americas newest hometown is attracting empty nesters, families and first-time home buyers; people from Maine, Mississippi, Atlanta and Arizona have purchased homes in Babcock Ranch. Hometown living is all about feeling connected to your town and your neighbors, Kitson said. Our homebuilding partners have helped us create that special magic here at Babcock Ranch.

B38 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYLuxurious penthouses available at Omega, the final high-rise at Bonita BayFour luxurious penthouse residences are now available for reservation at Omega, a new 26-floor high-rise tower to be built by the award-winning Ronto Group within Bonita Bay. The Omega tower will be the final luxury high-rise to be built at Bonita Bay. Designed by architect Robert M. Swedroe, the clean-lined, modern looking tower will feature 67 residences, including 63 spacious tower residences and the four penthouses. Swedroes design presents a fresh, out of market perspective on luxury and offers an approach to high-rise living that has never been available in the Southwest Florida market. Penthouse pre-construction pricing starts at $6.5 million. Tower residence pre-construction pricing starts at $2.150 million. Because the building design takes advantage of innovative high-rise construction methods and materials that span greater distances and allow the use of more glass, the Omega floor plans offer the square footage and width found in estate homes built on 110-foot home sites. The four Omega penthouses will be on levels 25 and 26. The 01 and 03 penthouses measure 6,435 square feet under air while the 02-penthouse floor plan offers 6,375 square feet under air. Each penthouse comes with an unheard of 1,710 square feet of outdoor terrace areas with Alfresco gas grills and 42-inch high glass railings, as well as a private elevator lobby, a private air-conditioned storage space on the same level as the residence, a private three-car garage, and a private roof-top amenity deck. The floor plans include five bedrooms, a den, and five-and-a-half baths. Massive open-concept living areas include a great room with a fireplace, a double-island kitchen in the 01 and 03 residences with a spacious walk-in pantry, and dining spaces that open to splendid terraces that wrap around the corner of the building. Additional terraces are located off the owners bedroom and off two of the guest bedrooms. The lightfilled residences will feature open living spaces with walls comprised of tall windows that will offer incredible views of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Volume ceiling heights of eleven feet fourinches in the penthouses, except where dropped, will create a sense of space that cannot be duplicated by remodeling the existing high-rise residences between Naples and Fort Myers. Prior to finalizing Omegas design, Ronto and Swedroe created the building from the inside out based on preferences expressed during focus groups with potential purchasers. The potential purchasers indicated view corridors and spacious, open floor plans with large, flowing living areas, large owner suites and secondary bedrooms, big outdoor living areas, private garages, and readily accessible storage space were all critical to an enjoyable living experience. Functionality and comfort were more important than form. Ronto and Swedroe also found that rather than wanting to downsize by moving into a condominium residence with less square footage than that to which they had been accustomed in their single-family estate homes, the potential purchasers wanted to simplify their lives by moving into a maintenance-free environment without sacrificing space or livability. Ronto and Swedroe designed the building based on their customer-focused research. Standard finishes in the fully completed Omega residences will reflect Rontos attention to creating a luxurious yet exceedingly livable environment. Flooring in the living areas will be wood, stone, or porcelain tile. The island kitchens will be outfitted with designer selected cabinetry, a multitude of quartz or granite countertop selections, a 36-inch SubZero refrigerator and 18-inch freezer, Wolf gas ranges and ovens, a Miele dishwasher, and Dornbracht plumbing fixtures. The bathrooms will also feature designer selected cabinetry and quartz or granite countertops, Dornbracht plumbing fixtures, and Toto toilets. Omega residents will enjoy 18,000 square feet of interior amenities, including a billiards room and bar attached to a social room, a catering kitchen, a spacious fitness center, a conference room, and three guest suites. Outside, current plans call for a single level amenity deck surrounded by glass railings that will convey a contemporary vibe and include a resort-style pool and spa, a living room-like 40-foot by 40-foot pool pavilion with a bar and dining tables, a hot tub, shaded areas, a cabana party area, fire pits with built-in seating, and six cabanas that are available for purchase and include a kitchenette and bathroom. Situated on Omegas third level, the amenity deck will offer a view of Estero Bay. Omega residents can take advantage of a variety of membership opportunities and enjoy the amenities available through the Bonita Bay Club. The Club has been designated a Platinum Clubs of America Five-Star Club of Excellence from 2016 through 2018. The Clubs amenity offering includes three on-property and two off-property golf courses, as well as a 60,000 square feet Lifestyle Center with a 9,000 squarefoot spa and salon, a 20,000 squarefoot fitness center, and the Wave Caf. A new Tennis and Aquatic Center is expected to open during the 2018 winter season. A new Sports Center will include a tennis pro shop, as well as dedicated mens and ladies tennis locker rooms. The Bonita Bay Marina is just minutes from the open waters of the Gulf. Bonita Bays residents-only beach park is just 10 to 15 minutes away on Little Hickory Island. Residents also enjoy Bonita Bays network of on-property biking and hiking paths. A kayaking and canoeing lodge offers additional recreational possibilities.

Big Daddy Weave makes God the message BY ALAN SCULLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentBefore making its 2012 album Love Come to Life, circumstances for Big Daddy Weave reached a point where bandleader Mike Weaver started to question whether he should end the group. He had grown to feel disconnected from God and that he was merely reciting the same messages from show to show and not doing enough to help bring fans closer to God and better live their lives through God. You get in this place where you can get up there and share something and not even be connected to it, Mr. Weaver said in a recent phone interview. And Ive got to tell you, there is nothing quite as yuck as sharing something thats hopeful when your hope is hurt. Some practical issues were only adding to Mr. Weavers frustrations. We were about 60 grand in the hole, he said. We were just making it from tour to tour. It was like we could never dig out of this thing we had. But in a single night, something fundamental happened to change the course of the groups career and help Mr. Weaver to reverse what had become negative attitudes about himself, his self-worth and his trust in God. It was one night the most yuck of the most yuck, he said. It was super low attendance and I just felt like I was regurgitating the same old thing. But I had a friend I was sharing my frustration with, and I told him, I dont know if its over for us. The friend suggested Mr. Weaver should just pray for people. He points at me right in the face, and he says, Mike, you should do that tonight. This caught Mr. Weaver off guard. But he decided to heed his friends advice and during the show stepped off of the stage to speak to the audience. I said, Man, were all hurting. Maybe youre hurting, too, he recalled. I said, I dont got any kind of wisdom for you, but if you want to come down here, Ill SEE BIG DADDY, C24 BY NANCY STETSON BY NANCY STETSON nstetson@ oridaweekly.com nstetson@ oridaweekly.com Season the busiest time of the year.

Were excited to announce our ofce is now open for business. MARCO ISLAND LOCATION950 N. Collier Blvd. Suite 303, Marco Island, FL 34145 FLORIDA WRITERSA thriller that spills over into the literary fiction genre City of Endless Night by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Grand Central Publishing. 368 pages. Hardcover, $28. Now that one member of this writing team, Lincoln Child, has established a winter residence in Sarasota, I have the pleasure of reviewing their new book in this column. Though each author has published notable fiction as a solo writer, their jointly written Pendergast Novel series has perhaps yielded more bestsellers. This one is certainly a dazzler. New York Police Department Lt. Vincent DAgosta has been assigned to the case, a search for a tech tycoons missing daughter. But when her body is discovered headless in an abandoned warehouse, it becomes a gruesome murder investigation. DAgosta is pleased to discover that genius FBI Special Agent Pendergast is also assigned to the case. There is a ton of pressure to solve this horrible crime. Fortunately, both DAgosta and the legendary Pendergast handle pressure well, though their styles are quite different. Much of the pleasure in this addictive novel is how the authors build such intriguing, distinctive major characters. Things heat up as more headless victims turn up. Why this horrifying signature? What possible motive? Is there one murderer or a bunch of copycats? Are such heinous crimes a symptom of a diseased city? The working out of the plot, and the series of beheadings, requires the efforts of many additional law enforcement professionals. The authors handle these subordinate figures well, providing just enough individuality for each so they dont seem like merely walk-on parts. The FBI and NYPD are not the only investigative forces at work. New York Post reporter Bryce Harrington, planning a long uptick in his career as the person who reveals the decapitator, stirs things up with an emphasis on how the 1 percent (the phenomenally rich and privileged New Yorkers) exploits the 99 percent. Maybe the motive and the citys disease are connected to this huge imbalance of power. Maybe someone is righting the scales by bringing down the powerful. Maybe vengeance drives this series of crimes. One thing the 1 percenters have in common is the protection of the latest and greatest of security systems. Their money buys them immunity or at least it should. The victims, however, include those whose lavish systems fail. Is someone on the inside a security company staffer behind the murders? A former Jesuit priest has another understanding of the citys illness and hopes to put together a spiritual solution. The authors dangle a wide range of possibilities, but only one is going to be the right one. It is the expectation that Pendergast will figure it out, even though physically he seems a shadow of his former self. And when he does, the resolution becomes a mano-a-mano confrontation that will keep readers breathless through a long, riveting and supersuspenseful stretch of the book. Special Agent Pendergast is a magnificent creation, and we can only hope that Preston and Child keep him in play for a long, long time. This is great thriller genre fiction that spills over into the literary fiction world with aplomb. Welcome to Florida, Mr. Child.About the authorsThe thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child stand head and shoulders above their rivals (Publishers Weekly). Their Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the 100 best thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a No. 1 office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series, and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves and Gideons Corpse. In addition to his novels, Mr. Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines. Mr. Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge best-seller Deep Storm. Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly strangely entertaining note from the authors, at www. PrestonChild.com. They also welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly. 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. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com Preston, left, and Child

Among the many styles, viewpoints and languages of this centuries-old genre, somehow the work of Verdi seems to go straight to the core of what opera is about. Opera Naples presents baritone Luca Salsi, known for his love for Verdi, in a concert of the great Italian operatic repertoire, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18, at the David and Cecile Wang Opera Center. Mr. Salsi was born in Parma, Italy, which is also Verdis birthplace. Everything was about Verdi, he says about growing up in Parma. So, in that respect, it is normal that one would grow up thinking that he was the best. Mr. Salsis early love of Verdi drove him into a career in opera and has earned him international acclaim as one of todays leading Verdi baritones. He has performed in the major opera houses of the world with conductors including Riccardo Muti, James Levine, Placido Domingo and Gustavo Dudamel. This season he sings three leading roles at the Metropolitan Opera. He made history in April 2015 by becoming only the third artist to sing two leading roles in the same day at the Met. Already scheduled for an evening performance in Lucia di Lammermoor, Mr. Salsi stepped in at the last minute to sing an afternoon performance as Don Carlo in Verdis Ernani, replacing Mr. Domingo who had to cancel because of illness.Mr. Salsi comes to Naples directly from his role in Il Trovatore at the Met. Opera Naples Ramn Tebar will accompany him on the piano. For tickets or more information, call Opera Naples at 9639050 or visit www.OperaNaples.org. SALSI

Now open!Come meet these playful African Penguins before they leave town! At Naples Zoo now through April 15, 2018. PENGUINS PARADISEINPENGUINS PARADISE NAPLESZOO.ORG 239.262.5409 ARTS COMMENTARYFollowing the twists and turns of Gidions Knot at Theatre ConspiracyGidions Knot is a Gordion Knot of a play. This two-hander at Theatre Conspiracy is difficult to unravel and challenging to think about. Set in the near future (April 2018) in a fifth-grade classroom in the tony Lake Forest suburb of Chicago, the action takes place between teacher Heather Clark (Lauren Drexler) and parent Corryn Fell (Sonya McCarter). Unfortunately, the play takes place in real time, which means that the action drags, especially in the first half. It is particularly slow in its opening minutes not a promising beginning. Playwright Johnna Adama also takes a long time to reveal pertinent information, by which time I was feeling a little frustrated. Corryns son, Gidion, has been suspended for five days from school, which upset him enormously. Corryn was scheduled for a parent-teacher conference, and now Heather is surprised shes shown up. (The principal was supposed to attend too, but is a no-show.) Heather is also dealing with her own crisis, the details of which arent revealed until the plays last minutes. Mother and teacher bicker and feint, the balance between them shifting constantly, so youre not sure where things stand as they keep dancing around the topic of why Gidion was suspended. And when the reason is (finally!) revealed, its both horrifying and beautiful. Gidion is obviously a talented and special kid who has a way with words. Unfortunately, he doesnt neatly fit into any of the boxes the school would like to put him into. They dont understand him. And so, the five-day suspension. This is a play about how we fail our children when we dont acknowledge them for the individuals they are, when we fail to support and encourage them in their uniqueness. Ms. Drexler and Ms. McCarter are both strong actors, and its good to see them on stage playing against each other. Ms. McCarter plays her character as bold and self-possessed, an outspoken woman who also seems a little lost. Shes searching for answers about her sons school experiences. Ms. Drexler has the more thankless role as the brittle and self-protective schoolteacher who suspended Gidion. But the actress plays the role for all its worth, especially when revealing her own personal crisis. Rachel Endrizzi has provided fine direction, but all three are hampered by Ms. Adams script and insistence on realtime action. The play does start to open up about halfway through, and its up to you, the audience member, to put the puzzle pieces together or, in this case, to untangle the knot that is Gidion. Key players in Gidions life two fellow students in particular are referred to but never seen. The set itself (by Tiffany Campbell, who also handles the light and sound board) gives many hints to the theatergoer. Its a highly realistic classroom, with posters about mythological gods, the Bill of Rights, sentence structure and ecosystem cycles. A spear and shield (which looks more like a kite) hang on a wall, and a Cat in the Hat mug sits on the teachers desk. Various student projects are placed around the classroom, including one on the Gordion Knot. This play is definitely not for the impatient. Its slow-slow-slow until the arrival of sudden explosive scenes. You might feel its taken too long to reach that point or, like me, you might feel emotionally devastated and wrung out when the play ends. Gidions Knot is not a perfect play. I wish the playwright had fleshed it out more. But its nicely acted by Theatre Conspiracy and raises some interesting questions.

How would you play the hand? At first glance, it appears that making the slam depends entirely on a successful club finesse a straightforward 50-50 proposition. If East has the king, you make six; if West has it, you go down one. However, if you take the proper preliminary steps, you can raise your chances to about 75 percent. The correct method of play, after taking the ace of diamonds, is to draw two rounds of trumps ending in dummy and then ruff a diamond. Next comes the A-K of hearts and a heart ruff, followed by a second diamond ruff. At this point, the dummy has no more diamonds or hearts, and the only red card in your hand is the heart seven, which you now lead. When West follows suit with the jack, the slam becomes an absolute certainly. Instead of trumping in dummy, which seems the normal thing to do, you discard one of dummys clubs. This leaves West on lead in a no-win situation. If he returns a club, it is into your A-Q, while if he leads a diamond, it allows you to discard a second club from dummy while ruffing in your hand. Either way, you score the rest of the tricks. The recommended approach assures the contract whenever West started with the majority of the missing hearts, which will occur roughly half the time. Failing that, you still have the club finesse in reserve, giving you two chances to make the slam instead of just one. 829 Airport Road North Naples, FL 34104 239.643.2292naplesboatmart.com EXIT 101 EXIT 105 GOLDEN GATE PARKWAYPayments based on 4.74% APR, 10% down payment, 240 month term.

PE A p ,yp FILM CAPSULESPeter Rabbit 1/2(Voices of Margot Robbie, James Corden, Daisy Ridley) Peter Rabbit (Corden) likes to steal food from poor old Mr. McGregor (Sam Neill), but Peter gets more than he bargained for when McGregors nephew (Domhnall Gleeson) moves into the house. Will children enjoy it, and will parents find it tolerable? The answer for both is: More than youd expect, but not as much as youd like. Based on the stories of Beatrix Potter. Rated PG. Happy End 1/2(Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Mathieu Kassovitz) In the northern French city of Calais, the Laurent family struggles with business and one another in writer/director Michael Hanekes (Amour) latest. Its intentionally confounding at times, but its also a fascinating look at the good and bad of life and the secrets we keep hidden. Rated R. 12 Strong 1/2(Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Pena) The first Army Special Forces unit into Afghanistan after 9/11 must team with an Afghan warlord to take a Taliban stronghold. Its an admirable story worthy of appreciation, but its repetitive and not told in a dynamic way. Still, theres enough good here to be worthy of a moderate recommendation. Rated R.Hostiles (Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi) A Civil War veteran (Bale) who has spent his post-war life hunting Native Americans is forced to escort a Cheyenne chief from Colorado to Montana. The story is preachy and labors in spots, but Bales performance is so superb its worth the price of admission alone. Watch closely for his facial expressions and mannerisms truly tremendous acting. Rated R.The 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 1970s. 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.

Tuesday & Wednesday Friday Nights Thursday Nights LAT E ST F I L M SThe Oscars: A look at all five foreign language nomineesThis years Oscar nominees for foreign language film run the gamut from satire in Sweden to a small squabble leading to a national dispute in Lebanon. What follows are mini-reviews of the five nominated films, how you can see them now and who will win and should win the Oscar.A Fantastic Woman (Chile) A strong performance by Daniela Vega highlights this story of Orlando (Francisco Reyes), an elderly man who leaves his wife for a younger woman. The twist in director Sebastian Lelios film is that the woman he chooses to be with, Marina (Vega), used to be a man. But thats not the awkward part. The awkward part is that Orlando dies early in the film, leaving Marina to deal with his grief-stricken family that both resents her and doesnt know what to make of her. Its a bold story thats wonderfully compelling, but you also sense Lelio is holding back at times, oddly restrained in not allowing Marina to feel the full brunt of social scorn. Perhaps being a little less sympathetic to Marina would have made for better drama, which might have made a better movie. Availability: In art house theaters now.Loveless (Russia) 1/2This is the most raw and gut-wrenching of the five nominees. Married Boris (Aleksey Rozin) and Zhenya (Maryana Spivak) despise one another and are about to be divorced. Worse, neither wants custody of their 12-year-old son, Alexey (Matvey Novikov), and the poor boy knows it. When Alexey disappears, more unbearable truths come to the fore, all wonderfully acted by Rozin and Spivak. Everything about the film is raw and unsanitized, from the relationship of the protagonists to the frequent nudity to the unfeeling way the police go about the investigation. Its darn good drama each step of the way. Availability: In art house theaters now.On Body and Soul (Hungary) It has the best conceit of the five nominees, yet is the worst film of the bunch. At a slaughterhouse in Budapest, Endre (Geza Morcsanyi), the older financial director who has all but given up on life, discovers he has the same dreams every night as the new, young and pretty quality control manager Maria (Alexandra Borbely). What a great idea for a movie! What do you do when you realize you have the same dreams as someone else? Director Ildiko Enyedi inexplicably makes the story one of separate personal discovery for the protagonists rather than a joint one, and the result is a meandering drama that does little with its premise. Disappointing. Availability: On Netflix streaming now.The Insult (Lebanon) Lebanese Christian Tony (Adel Karam) intentionally spills water from his second floor balcony on Palestinian Jew Yasser (Kamel El Basha), whos working on the street below him. Yasser then says something to Tony that cant be repeated in print. Tony demands an apology but doesnt get it. The seemingly insignificant tiff escalates into a wonderfully written and acted national dispute in which neither man is entirely right or wrong. The only thing entirely right about the film is how well director Ziad Doueiri tells the story. Its the most thought-provoking, well-acted and allaround terrific film of the group. Availability: In art house theaters now. The Square (Sweden) 1/2Winner of the prestigious Palm dOr at last years Cannes Film Festival, director Ruben Ostlunds (Force Majeure) latest is a strange movie thats endlessly befuddling and fascinating. Set in the world of Swedish contemporary art and centered on the curator (Claes Bang) of a prominent Stockholm art museum, its a seriocomic look at the sometimes unintended consequences of our actions. It also looks at art what it is and what it isnt and prompts our subjectivity to draw its own conclusion about the movie, much as it would any form of art. Im not sure if it works as well as it aspires to work, but it is undeniably intriguing. Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West co-star. Availability: On home video. Predicted winner: A Fantastic Woman. Should win: The Insult. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 15-21, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C25 COLLECTORS CORNER Stick a fork in this find its done! scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com For as long as I can remember, I have loved silver. There always was something sweet in the tea-like scent of the silver chest my grandparents used. More than a decade after Grandma gave it to me, the chest still has that same, wonderful aroma. And the silver? Even silver plate rings with bell-like clarity. But theres nothing like the feel of sterling silver flatware. I began collecting silver more than two decades ago. I built a set of sterling around two teaspoons my mother had. Those spoons, which had belonged to her grandmother, bore the name Martha, which had been the name of three generations of women in the family, including my mom, her grandmother and her great-great-grandmother. Grandma had saved out all of her mother-in-laws linens, jewelry, and other items that bore her monogram, for my mother. Those two Towle Old Colonial teaspoons inspired me to collect other monogramed spoons in the same pattern.Theres an Ethel in the grouping. A couple read simply, Class, Feb. 11, 1899. Im not sure what that means, but the mystery is part of the attraction with antiques. And get this the first time I used them was Feb. 11, 1999, and it was totally unintentional. I love the fluted bowls of the spoons and the shield motifs of the handles in the Old Colonial pattern. I branched out in the early 1990s, buying knives, forks and serving pieces. The first pieces I bought were dinner forks I found at the old Coconut Grove Cares show in Miami. The woman who sold them to me allowed me to put them on layaway at $20 a pop. I still can identify them by the engraving on their backs /25/05, /25/06. Someone had clearly bought the recipient a fork each year for Christmas. How cool is that? Also in the 1990s, my friend Lou Ann and I would drive to Miami to the big antiques shows near the Miami International Airport. There, dealers would have vast tables heaped with silver to pick through. My hands were black with tarnish by the time I had picked through the piles. I remember finding half a dozen forks marked Fritz. I have no idea whose name that was, or whether it was a first or a last name, but Lou Ann always exclaims, Fritz fork! when her place is set with one of the pieces for dinner at my house. My friend, silver dealer Art Shea, always reminds me sterling flatware is like money in the bank its worth its weight in silver. But I love the markings, the mystery and the history, all burnished with time. Found: P unta Gorda Antiques Sho w, Charlotte Harbor Events Center, 75 Taylor St. Punta Gorda. Next show will be in 2019. Info: www.allmanpromotions.com. Paid: $42 The skinny: My mom bought this as a birthday gift for me, guessing correctly that I didnt have a lemon fork. Well, I do now. Towle first made its Old Colonial pattern in 1895 at the height of the Victorian Age. At that time, there was a fork for everything dinner forks, luncheon forks, dessert forks, cold meat forks even sardine forks. The lemon fork has bent tines designed to politely spear a slice of lemon (or lime). And politeness is something that never goes out of style.

NECK EYES BREAST SKIN FACE LIPS BODYCOURTESY PHOTO The members of Big Daddy Weave are, left to right: Brian Beihl, Jeremy Redmon, Mike Weaver, Joe Shirk and Jay Weaver. Big Daddy Weave with Brandon Heath>> When: 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 23 >> Where: First Baptist Church Naples, 3000 Orange Blossom Drive >> Tickets: $20-$75 >> Info: 597-6057 or www.ticket y.com pray with you. I was thinking everybody would probably be too scared to come. But people just started coming. Thats what turned it around for us not feeling so, Woe is me. Why is this (band) not working? he said. We started praying for other people, and God literally restored us in that process. Since that night, the members of Big Daddy Weave have made stepping into audiences to listen to stories from fans and to offer their prayers a fixture at the end of every show. Along the way, Big Daddy Weave has achieved its highest level of popularity on the Christian music scene in a career that dates back to 2001. Thats when the original band members lead singer/guitarist Mr. Weaver, his brother and bassist Jay Weaver, guitarist Jeremy Redmon, sax player/keyboardist Joe Shirk and drummer Jeff Jones formed Big Daddy Weave after meeting at University of Mobile in Alabama. (Brian Beihl replaced Mr. Jones on the drums in 2013.) Love Come to Life was a breakthrough album, with four songs topping the Christian music charts, including Redeemed, which spent 11 weeks at No. 1 and became the bands signature song. It also opened the door for the lyrical themes on the bands 2015 album, Beautiful Offerings. On this latest release (which went Top 5 on the Christian album chart), Mr. Weaver and his bandmates tell listeners that the forgiveness for their past, as promised in Redeemed, is only part of what redemption involves. Redemption also gives people a path to a better present and future. The thing is were redeemed from something, but were redeemed for something, too, Mr. Weaver said. And I think the next part of that is the part that for me I wanted to write about. Thats where so many of these songs (on Beautiful Offerings) have come from What does that (redemption) mean for us now? It means new life. The messages of the songs have grown so important that Mr. Weaver is finding the words he shares and the connections he makes with fans are now the highlights and in fact, the focus of Big Daddy Weaves live shows. As we have gone along, weve always enjoyed music, but I think in this last season, more than anything, we have just really enjoyed seeing God move in the lives of people in a really powerful way, he said. Really, from the beginning to the end, we want the show to be about sharing the fact that God loves people. He really does. Hes not mad at people Theres a second chance for everybody, man. I need more than a second chance. All of these songs come from that place of grace and that place of acceptance, that place of learning about our identity in God. BIG DADDYFrom page 1

Only one other Florida restaurant, Normans in Orlando, made the cut. This is truly an honor to be in the company of so many premier restaurants that are mostly located in or near the biggest cities in the country, Michael Smith, director of operations at DAmico & Partners, said about the distinction. We are constantly striving to improve and innovate at The Continental and all DAmico restaurants, while also working hard to help Naples gain more attention nationally for its excellent dining scene. Editorial director at The Daily Meal is Colman Andrews, former editor and cofounder of Saveur magazine and restaurant editor of Gourmet magazine. The list can be viewed at www.thedailymeal.com. Sunburst Caf owners Jerome and Theresa Tocio celebrate the restaurants 20th anniversary on Tuesday, Feb. 20, by donating 20 percent of the days profits to the John Doe lunch account at a nearby elementary school to feed kids who dont have lunch money. Inspired by an incident when their daughter forgot her lunch and was given a cold cheese sandwich to eat, the Tocios are happy to provide a little extra scratch for kids whose accounts are overdrawn or who simply misplaced their lunch money or sack lunch. Thanks to John Doe accounts, school children are given a hot lunch, not a cold cheese sandwich, regardless of their ability to pay, Ms. Tocio says. Sunburst Caf is at 2340 Pine Ridge Road and is open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 263-3123 or visit www.sunburstnaples.com.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previously reviewed restaurants: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 runs a first-class restaurant thats only gotten better in the eight years since he opened. Dishes are grouped by the region of the country from which they originate, and its fun to mix and match. The Florida fresh ceviche, consisting of black grouper and yellowfin tuna with corn and bell pepper in a citrus marinade and cilantro crme fraiche, was less spicy than most, but flavorful nonetheless. The Maryland blue crab souffl was full of lump crab, lightly browned and crisp on a pool of sweet corn puree. Troll king salmon encrusted in pumpkin seeds came atop a stellar sweet potato gratin, and the zinfandel braised short rib was fork tender and devoid of fat, made even better by a wild mushroom veal jus. Parsnip-laced mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts were perfect accompaniments. For dessert: house-made chocolate ganache with wild berry coulis was rich and just right for two. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2017 Marlin Bar at Tommy Bahama, 23150 Fashion Drive, Coconut Point, Estero; 947-2203 The Marlin Bar is a casual concept by the retail fashion and restaurant chain Tommy Bahama, and its a convenient alternative for shoppers who want a quick break for an al fresco pick-me-up or to unwind after a day of store hopping. True to the Tommy Bahama aesthetic, there are a half-dozen rum concoctions blended with pineapple, coconut and citrus. With food prices topping out at $12, its easy to try a broad sampling of the brief menu. So-called snacks include craft beer cheese and guacamole. Salads and rice bowls are topped with proteins that make them substantial enough to serve as entres, and handhelds constitute a couple of sandwiches and tacos with assorted fillings. The world famous coconut shrimp with mangopapaya chutney elevates a culinary clich, and those rice bowls are colorful, bountiful and relatively healthful. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2017 Mediterrano, 336 13th Ave. S., Naples; 261-7498 There arent many places in which the owner himself greets and seats you, but thats the level of hospitality found at this lovely little restaurant filled with soothing aquamarine hues that suggest the beauty of the Mediterranean waters. I enjoyed a refreshing mojito sangria, but theres an extensive wine list from which to choose. Warm pita triangles come with balsamic reduction, sundried tomato butter and olive oil as a starter. Try not to gorge. An appetizer of grilled octopus with baby spinach, preserved lemon, roasted garlic cloves, heirloom tomatoes and smoked paprika was delicious. Lamb keftedes and falafel was a classic and hearty pairing that Id recommend two share. The cioppino was bountiful, full of sea bass, mussels, shrimp and clams in a roasted Roma tomato sauce. Mediterranean sea bass arrived in a bamboo steamer filled with Moroccan spices, lavender, golden raisins and pomegranate seeds. It was the star of the meal. A limoncello parfait, a potent mix of icy lemon and soothing vanilla, was a refreshing end to the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2016 Petars Restaurant, 3300 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 4941343 Petars seats only 32 indoors and a handful outside and serves just a halfdozen each of appetizers and entrees. But former Ritz-Carlton chef Petar Al Kurdi proves theres a lot to be said for offering a small menu, cooking with the freshest seasonal ingredients and plating each dish with precision and panache. His crab cakes are so free of filler ingredients that it was difficult to tell what was holding the moist jumbo lump meat together. Fresh pasta and skillfully simmered risotto are mainstays, and exquisite Wagyu beef may turn up as a juicy strip steak with parsnip puree or tucked into Bolognese with pasta. Each dish from appetizer to entree was garnished with snippets of green herbs such as dill and parsley, which added a final flourish of freshness to the plates. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed: February 2016 St. Germain Steakhouse, 03 Bayfront Place, Naples; 435-9353 Most of us know the Germain name in connection with car dealerships, but these days it is the name of an upscale steakhouse that took the place of Stoneys at Bayfront Place. The food is well executed and steaks come with potatoes and, in some cases, vegetables a praiseworthy rarity at steakhouses. Appetizers of black mussels in white pernod sauce, grilled calamari steaks with roasted red pepper and carrot puree and a steakhouse wedge salad were generously portioned and noteworthy. So were the entrees, which ranged from a 14-ounce veal chop to 12-ounce prime rib and a grouper fillet with pomegranate beurre blanc. A slice of Key lime pie was good while a pistachio and cherry bread pudding was the meals only disappointment. Full bar.

CUISINE REVIEWT-Michaels known for steak and lobster, but Sunday brunch shines, tooT-Michaels known for steak and lobster, but Sunday brunch shines, too Sundays mean different things to each of us. For some, its church and family dinner at home. For others, its a day to laze around the house. Sometimes its a day to chow down on breakfast. Or lunch. Or something in between. It was that in between that beckoned last Sunday when my companion and I decided to give T-Michaels Sunday brunch a try. This popular spot at The Village on Venetian Bay is well known for its steak and lobster dinners but, as we discovered, its also a fine choice for Sunday brunch. One reason for that is obvious the minute you sit down: The gorgeous bay on which the restaurant sits is at its best during the day when you can see it spanning from the picture windows to the vast three-story home built atop the water directly in front of the restaurant and then stretching across to the array of lovely homes on the far side. Some of that beauty is evident after sunset, yes, but the bay sparkles in the sun and makes a lovely backdrop for brunch. The dining room is cheerful and bright, too, the walls and tablecloths a clean white, the linen napkins black to match the insets of the wooden chairs. Those who dont need a water view or who are looking to dial down the light a bit can opt to dine in the lovely and welcoming bar, which occupies a front section of the restaurant and has a dark, woodsy feel. We arrived relatively early and were rewarded with a table right in front of the windows. A server came as we settled in and swiftly produced a bloody Mary ($10.50) and a mimosa ($10.50 for one, $20 for unlimited refills). The bloody Mary had two satisfyingly plump green olives suspended on a toothpick but was devoid of the usual stalk of celery. For $10.50, Id expect at least that, if not a few other goodies. Some restaurants serve close to a whole meal in that glass. The brunch menu isnt large but is divided into breakfast and lunch sections for easy selection. Will it be omelette and pancakes or bisque, ceviche and sandwiches? Why not a bit of both? There are two bisques offered: Maine lobster ($6), of course, and sweet potato ($6). One of each, please. Although we received two of the sweet potato first, the server quickly apologized and returned with one of the lobster version. Both were excellent the creamy lobster possessed the salty tang of the sea and was studded with chunks of lobster, while the sweet potato was also creamy but sweet, with a shower of cinnamon on top and tender raisins floating about for texture. I had the lobster omelette ($18), while my companion ordered a blackened grouper sandwich ($18). Both arrived warm, fragrant and attractively plated. The omelette was somewhat thicker than is typical, but perhaps that was needed to contain the several pieces of whole asparagus, plus mushrooms and chunks of lobster within it. It required some cutting to dissect the al dente asparagus, but it was nicely seasoned. A mound of home fries accompanied the omelette (fries are available for an extra charge), and an assortment of fresh melon, pineapple and grapes were ripe and refreshing. The blackened grouper sandwich arrived open faced so the thick fillet with its array of seasonings was on display atop one half of the bun. Lettuce, tomato, a pickle wedge and the onion my companion had requested be omitted were on the other side. Thick steak fries and a small bowl of ketchup completed the plate. The fries were warm, mostly crisp and had rich potato flavor. The fish was well seasoned enough so that you could taste the seasoning but not so much that it overpowered the fish. It came without sauce but didnt need any because the fish was so flavorful. Frothy cappuccino ($4.5) and a slice of just-right carrot cake ($10) moist, not too sweet and with just enough cream cheese frosting finished the meal nicely. There were a couple of minor misses in service but nothing serious, certainly nothing that detracted from the enjoyment of the meal. But I wouldnt expect even these at an establishment in which you can plan to pay $40 for brunch. Nonetheless, there are few waterfront restaurants capable of delivering both a delightful view and delectable food. Achieving that delicate balance cant be inexpensive and Im willing to ante up for a meal that affords my spouse and me some quality time together in a romantic setting where the food is worth the trip as well.

Bisque sweet potato, in this case is a tasteful way to begin Sunday brunch at T-Michaels. Carrot cake with whipped cream and a drizzle of raspberry sauce is a fine way to end Sunday brunch.

6 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSpring changing BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentSome things remain the same in spring training as they were in 1968, or 1918. Three strikes and youre out. Ninety feet between bases. Sixty feet and six inches between the pitchers rubber and home plate. But so much else has changed, from geography to economics, from race and training, from ballparks to transportation and communication and the media and food for sale in concession stands. Were sure sushi wasnt available at Terry Park in Fort Myers in 1930 when the Philadelphia As called it their spring home. Nobody texted or Tweeted from Terry Park in 1940 when Bob Feller and the rest of the Cleveland Indians were preparing for the season. The As are now located in Oakland and train in Arizona. Black ballplayers werent allowed in the majors until 1947, when Jackie Robinson broke in with the Brooklyn Dodgers. During Mr. Robinsons era the seating at Florida ballparks was segregated with black patrons consigned to colored seating. ESPN didnt exist when the Kansas City Royals held their first spring training at Terry Park in 1969. The Indians now train in Arizona. And the changing face of spring training continues changing. This will be the Atlanta Braves final spring in Champions Stadium at Disneys ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando. In 2019, they will begin training in North Port, in a Sarasota County facility sporting a $110 million construction cost. Ground was broken on that facility last year. Elsewhere in this section Florida Weekly looks back at the Pittsburgh Pirates, who trained in Fort Myers Terry Park from 1955 to 1968. That facility cost $80,000 when it was built more than 60 years ago. In 2012, a few miles south, the Boston Red Sox moved into JetBlue Park, a baseball palace sporting a roughly $80 million price tag. The Red Sox had previously trained at City of Palms Park on the southern fringe of downtown Fort Myers. That facility opened in 1993 and cost $24 million. So the new home the Red Sox had built cost more three times what the original stadium cost in raw dollars. The Braves new North Port home will cost more than four times as much as City of Palms Park and about $20 million more than JetBlue. This will be a first for North Port, which had a population of 57,357, according to the 2010 U. S. Census. In 1960, only 178 people lived there. Now, larger cities with rich spring training traditions such as St. Petersburg, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Miami dont have spring training teams. But North Port does. North Port city commissioner Chris Hanks said the presence of the Braves in his community should raise its profile. North Port is located between Sarasota and Punta Gorda. One of the best known brands in Major League Baseball, Mr. Hanks said of the Braves. Now the Braves, a baseball brand associated with Hank Aaron, Chipper Jones and John Smoltz among others, will call North Port home every year for BRACE HEMMELGARN/MINNESOTA TWINSThe Kansas City Royals trained at the Park T.

8 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYabout six weeks. Weve already seeing an economic boost, Mr. Hanks said. The economic impact of stadium construction is being felt. In a year the economic impact of the team, its staff, fans and media flocking to the Braves new spring home should be felt. Although the focus of the managers, coaches, players and fans are mainly on the field there is also the economics of spring training. Thats what has driven spring training for more than a century, from the days when the Braves called Boston home and trained in St. Petersburg in the 1920s and 1930s and after they moved to Milwaukee and then Atlanta and called West Palm Beach home from 1963 to 1997.The Ballparks Are A-ChangingEach generation of ballparks bring things that werent offered before. Newer facilities such as JetBlue feature something the Red Sox lacked when they played their home spring training games at City of Palms Park. Well, more than one something. JetBlue, like the nearby CenturyLink Sports Complex, offers multiple practice fields on the same site. When the Red Sox played Grapefruit League games in City of Palms Park the clubs five practice fields were located a little more than two miles to the east down Edison Avenue. It was an inconvenience. Former Minnesota Twins executive Bill Smith knows about real inconvenience. Before the Twins moved from Orlandos Tinker Field to what was then called the Lee County Sports Complex the teams practice fields were in Melbourne. Thats the Melbourne in Florida and not the one in Australia. But it must have seemed as if the minor-league teams were as far away as another country on the far side of the world. Mr. Smith, who is now the assistant to the president and CEO of Minor League Baseball, joined the Twins in 1986 as an assistant director of minor leagues. Hes witnessed the massive spring training changes. Since 1991 the Twins have had their big-league team and minor-league teams all on the same site. Its been the case with the Red Sox since 2012. Mr. Smith, recalls that when the Twins called Tinker Field home their minor-league teams were 40 miles away. Now, big-league spring training facilities include meeting rooms and weight rooms and large offices for executives and managers. That wasnt the case for the Twins when their minor-league teams were 40 miles away from Tinker Field. Very Spartan, Mr. Smith said of the facilities back then. Although most baseball rules are immutable and as changeless as the seasons other things change around the sport in general and spring training in particular. When the Twins trained at Tinker Field it was on a site that was first used for that purpose in 1914. What was state of the art in 1914 would not do a few decades later, certainly not by 1963, when the stadium the Twins used for spring training was rebuilt. But that stadium was outdated by the late 1980s, when the Twins started looking for a new home. I was there only a couple of times, Mr. Smith said of Tinker Field. It was a facility that was old and needed significant upgrades. The Twins needed to keep up with the changing times and the training facilities of other teams. The game was passing us by, Mr. Smith said. Instead of getting the upgrades in Orlando, the Twins found a new home in Lee County, which built a stadium and practice fields. What was state of the art in 1991 was outdated a bit 20 years later and that facility underwent a $48.5 million renovation that was finished in 2015. The renovations cost roughly triple the price of building the complex, which opened in 1991. The cost of the original stadium and complex was $15.6 million. The most notable Hammond Stadium change was adding a 360-degree concourse wrapping around the outfield. Fans can now wander around the stadium and watch games from different vantage points. Fans can move around freely at the ballpark and moving to road games will be a bit easier for Southwest Florida teams starting in 2019. When the Braves move into their North Port home next year it will provide another relatively short bus ride for local teams. Its great for the Twins and Red Sox, Mr. Smith said. It brings a team closer for travel purposes. COURTESY FLORIDA SPORTS FOUNDATIONThe St. Louis Cardinals in their St. Petersburg clubhouse in the 1960s.SPRINGFrom page 6SEE SPRING, 10

North Port is in southern Sarasota County, just north of the Charlotte County, not far from the Tampa Bay Rays spring training home at the Charlotte Sports Park.Show Them The MoneySpring training has matured over the decades from a money-losing expense for teams to something that generates revenue. Spring training is now marketed as a business, Mr. Smith said. It used to be a black hole. Teams used to pour money down that hole to transport and house players and buy equipment. Now, that expense is offset by increased attendance. The Red Sox, for example, averaged 9,796 fans per game for their 18 home games last year at JetBlue Park. It led the Grapefruit League. So much has changed just since Mr. Smith started working in baseball in the 1980s, let alone a century ago. He said the Twins used to bring eight front office people to Fort Myers for spring training. Now its up to 38. Its a major operation to run, Mr. Smith. Teams bring front office executives such as general managers and media relations staffers and promotions people and ticket staff. How much does all this cost, from transportation to housing to food to Internet access and countless other details?Its certainly north of $1 million, Mr. Smith said. After thinking about it a few minutes and thinking about the costs of bus rentals and feeding players and staff and countless other expenses such as printing tickets and game programs Mr. Smith revised his estimate. Its got to be a minimum of $2 million, Mr. Smith said.Stopping the BleedingBetween 1997 and 2009 six teams left Florida for Arizona. The roster of the departed includes the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox, Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals. The Rangers and Royals had Southwest Florida ties. The Royals trained in Fort Myers from their inception in 1969 until 1987, when they moved to a central Florida facility called Baseball City. In 2003, they moved to Surprise, Ariz. The Rangers called Port Charlotte their home from 1987 to 2002. They now also train in Surprise. The Tampa Bay Rays, who had previously trained in St. Petersburg, moved to a renovated Charlotte Sports Park in 2009. To stop the baseball bleeding state officials started offering grants to cities and counties to help pay for new stadiums or renovations such as the one done at CenturyLink. A $20 million grant helped officials in Sarasota County pay for the Braves new stadium. What compelled state officials to pony up the grants? The Florida Sports Foundation estimates the annual economic impact of spring training in the state at $753 million. The grants helped lock up teams to remain in Florida. Nick Gandy, spokesman for the Florida Sports Foundation, said 11 of the 15 teams training in Florida have leases that will keep them here through at least 2030. Any Florida oldtimer who is a baseball fan knows how the Grapefruit League has changed from a modest enterprise when plenty of seats were typically available to games. In 2017, the 15 teams training in Florida attracted 1,616,872 fans. Here is an example of how the times and Florida and spring training have changed. In 1940, when the Cleveland Indians trained at Terry Park, Floridas population was 1.9 million, just a bit more than 2017 spring training attendance. Floridas population is now more than 21 million. Northeastern University journalism professor Charles Fountain pointed out in his 2009 book, Under the March Sun, The Story of Spring Training, total attendance combined between the Grapefruit League and the Cactus League in Arizona topped 1 million for the first time in 1981. When the Pittsburgh Pirates trained at Terry Park in the 1950s and 1960s they sometimes failed to attract even 1,000 fans to games. On March 15, 1960 the Pirates, who would go on to win the World Series that year, beat the Philadelphia Phillies 17-13 before an announced crowd of 856. Nine days later only 786 fans, the smallest crowd of 1960, turned out to see the Pirates beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2. The total attendance at Terry Park that spring was 18,776. The combined average in 2017 for the Red Sox and Twins at their Lee County ballparks was 16,746. The current combined average is nearly the same as the 1960 total.So, whats next?Whatever comes next some things will likely remain the same. Three strikes and youre out. Ninety feet between bases. And sixty feet and six inches from the pitchers rubber to home plate. 10 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY 10 9 8 7 6 3 2 1 12 13 14 15 16 Fort Myers Fort Myers West Palm Beach Orlando Orlando Tampa Miami Miami 9 8 4 3 1 12 13 14 15 TEAM CITYAtlanta Braves North Port Baltimore Orioles Sarasota Boston Red Sox Fort Myers Detroit Tigers Lakeland Houston Astros West Palm Beach Miami Marlins Jupiter Minnesota Twins Fort Myers New York Mets Port St. Lucie New York Yankees Tampa Philadelphia Phillies Clearwater Pittsburgh Pirates Bradenton St. Louis Cardinals Jupiter Tampa Bay Rays Port Charlotte Toronto Blue Jays DunedinSpring Training then and nowGrapefruit League 2019Note: The Braves plan to move by spring 2019.T1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 TEAM CITYChicago White Sox Sarasota Cincinnati Reds Tampa Los Angeles Dodgers Vero Beach Oakland As Bradenton Texas Rangers Pompano Beach Atlanta Braves West Palm Beach Baltimore Orioles Miami Boston Red Sox Winter Haven Detroit Tigers Lakeland Houston Astros Cocoa Minnesota Twins Orlando New York Mets St. Petersburg New York Yankees Fort Lauderdale Philadelphia Phillies Clearwater Pittsburgh Pirates Fort Myers St. Louis Cardinals St. PetersburgT1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 Spring TrainingGrapefruit League 1968Note: 1968 was the nal year the Pirates trained in Fort Myers.

12 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe baseball scouts life is one of airports, planes, cars and hotels. Travel includes trips from their homes to a high school a mile away or tournaments in countries as distant as Australia, Japan or Italy. Tangible tools of the trade include radar guns, cell phones and laptops. Perhaps, even more important than items one can hold and turn on and off are the intangibles. The most critical of these intangibles may be the gift of seeing 17-year-old boys playing baseball today and projecting how they will develop as men tested daily in a crucible of competition. Scouting jobs vary. Some scouts focus on amateur baseball, scouring the landscape at high school and college games as well as showcases, where top young talents display their basic wares. They do more than watch players. They study players. How fast can they run? How far can they hit a ball? How frequently can they hit that speeding, curving, dipping, darting little white object? How fast can pitchers throw a baseball? Not all the work requires hand-held devices. How can they use an electronic gizmo to measure the heart, drive and character or a 17-year-old at Fort Myers High or in Japan or Colombia? Other scouts work the professional landscape, going to minor-league games and big-league games looking for insight into a potential free agent signee or players to acquire in trades. Fort Myers resident John Cedarburg has been around the game and Southwest Florida a long time. He was the baseball coach at what was then called Edison Community College from 1991 through 1997, before it dropped all sports. He then began scouting for the Colorado Rockies and has now been with them more than 20 years. His responsibility is amateur scouting in Florida from Naples in the south, up the west coast to Tampa and beyond and over to Floridas east coast to north of Melbourne. He also mixes in some pro scouting covering minor league games. Mr. Cedarburg said he drove his 2016 Camry 47,000 miles in 2017 going to assignments. How many games? He estimated at least 250. Scouts know better than most that very few amateur players have the goods to be drafted and very few of the drafted players ever step foot in big-league stadiums as players. Its a challenge, Mr. Cedarburg said. Its a game of failure. We draft so many guys and very few get to the big leagues. The Major League Baseball draft is 50 rounds long. Then multiply that by 30 teams. Assuming each team drafts on each round thats 1,500 new players every year. That doesnt take into account all the amateurs signed from countries that arent part of the drafting process. That means Cubans and Dominicans and Venezuelans and more. There are only 750 roster spots in the majors. Many are called, few are chosen. They have to compete every day, Mr. Cedarburg said of fresh draft picks sent off to the minors. Mike Radcliff is the Minnesota Twins vice president of player personnel and a veteran of more than a third of a century in scouting. He resides in Minnesota. As my job evolved it didnt matter where I lived, Mr. Radcliff said. There are airports just about anywhere baseball is played. His scouting travels have taken him to, among other countries, Canada, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Spain, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. He used to count how many airports he flew through but stopped counting at 127. But that was years ago. I try not to keep track of the nights in hotels, Mr. Radcliff said. Jaymie Bane, who lives near Bradenton, is a pro coverage scout for the Boston Red Sox. Mr. Bane is baseball born and bred. His father, Eddie Bane, was a firstround draft choice of the Minnesota Twins in 1973, back when the team trained in Orlando. The younger Mr. Bane grew up playing the game and was talented enough to pitch at a major Division I program, Arizona State. The Angels selected him on the 20th round of the 1997 draft. He had no illusions of being blessed with big-league talent. I think I was a good enough evaluator of myself, Mr. Bane said. His statistics back up his assessment. In two years in the low minors Mr. Bane was 4-4 with a 5.12 ERA. He then tried independent pro ball and was 4-4 with a 5.67 ERA in one season. Thats not going to get a pitcher to Fenway Park. At least to the Fenway pitching rubber. I was the filler, Mr. Bane said, meaning he was one of those guys signed to fill out minor-league rosters so the real prospects have somebody to play with and against. He knew the deal going in. Now, he is what is called a pro coverage scout. He doesnt typically scout amateurs, looking for the best high school and college players. Now, Mr. Banes focus is the pros, not high school players. Hes responsible to scout the Pirates, Phillies and Mets, from Class A leagues such as the Florida State League to the big leagues.Tools of the tradeIn baseball parlance a five-tool player is one who can do it all run, field, throw, hit and hit with power. Thats based on a big-league scale. Very few ballplayers are above average in all five categories. Examples include Willie May, Mickey Mantle and Ken Griffey, Jr. Scouts know they wont see many of those players in their careers. While players have their tools, scouts employ other tools. Tools of communication in scouting have changed. Decades ago communication was telegrams or letters, what we now call snail mail. There were no radar guns or texting between the scout at a high school game in Naples and the scouting director back in Boston or Detroit or Seattle. Back before the rise of analytics, best popularized by the film Moneyball, scouting relied on basics. Knowledge of the game. Assessing talent. Projecting talent. That ability to foresee a ballplayers future, to gauge how a teenager or very young man will mature as he grows into and through his 20s is critical. Having that ability will determine, Mr. Radcliff said, if a scout can be good and productive. That ability to project is still in a scouts tool kit in the Twitter age, the same as it was during the days of the Model T and telegrams. Its still important when teams employ computer wizards in the office to break down players and their stats. Scouts must figure out what todays teen phenom might be like in a few years. Theyre not going to be the same four, five, six years down the line, Mr. Radcliff said. It all comes back to projecting. Thats the essence of scouting, Mr. Radcliff said. Its more art than science. Were wrong a lot, Mr. Radcliff said. Only a small percentage of players who sign contracts will ever play in the major leagues. A ballpark estimate bouncing around for years pegs the percentage of players who reach the majors at 10 percent. I think its slightly less than that, Mr. Radcliff said. Mention scouting tools made Mr. Bane think of an office desktop device common before desktop meant something else in the computer age and people stored phone numbers in their cell phones. It goes back to having that Rolodex of information, Mr. Bane said. Thats a point echoed by other scouts. The big thing is all the information, Mr. Cedarburg said. All three scouts have been around long enough to see significant change. Mr. Radcliff started scouting in 1983, the same year veteran Twins first baseman Joe Mauer was born. At the time, Mr. Radcliff worked for the Major League Scouting Bureau. He joined the Twins in 1987, when Mr. Mauer was 4. Mr. Mauer graduated in 2001 from Cretin-Derham High School in St. Paul, Minn. He was a highly sought after football player as well as baseball player. Mr. Mauer was a quarterback and named USA Todays national high school football player of the year. He was also the national high school baseball player of the year. The Twins had the No. 1 overall pick. Florida State University football coach Bobby Bowden was hoping Mr. Mauer would come to Tallahassee and be his quarterback. If the Twins drafted the local kid and he went off to play football instead their firstround pick would be a waste. Mr. Radcliff was then the Twins director of scouting. Twins officials scouted the kid and determined he would sign if drafted and they knew he was special. Scouts often employ a 20-to-80 scale when grading talent. An 80 is the best in the majors. Mr. Radcliff spotted the kids potential. I had Joe as an 80-hitter as a sophomore in high school, Mr. Radcliff said. The best swing Ive ever seen. Were certainly happy to have him. A $5.1 million signing bonus helped lure the young Mr. Mauer away from football. We had a lot of confidence he would sign, Mr. Radcliff said. In 2012, the Twins had the No. 2 overall pick in the draft and their eyes were on a Georgia high school marvel named Byron Buxton. What stood out is the obvious speed, Mr. Radcliff said. A blur. The Twins went ahead and selected Mr. Buxton and signed him to a $6 million bonus. Sometimes projecting a talent is easy as in the examples of Mr. Mauer and Mr. Buxton. Mr. Bane recalls seeing current San Francisco Giants outfielder Andrew McCutchen when he starred at Fort Meade High near Lakeland. He was like Kelly Leak in The Bad PHOTO COURTESY MINNESOTA TWINSTwins vice president of player personnel Mike Radcliff began his scouting career in 1983.A scouts life

Mr. McCutchen dominated high school baseball. He was so good that he made the Fort Meade varsity in eighth grade and hit .591. In eighth grade! Mr. McCut chen had the big-league goods. Most amateur players dont. Most simply arent good enough. Mr. Cedarburg rattled off some statistics on the percentage of players who make it from particular rounds. He said 66 percent of first-round picks make the big leagues. But it goes down to 49 percent from the second round and 32 percent from rounds 3 through 5. Then for rounds 6-through 10 the percentage dips to 20. By the late round, those selected 21 through 40 the percent that make it is 7 percent, according to Mr. Cedarburg. Scouting reports help teams decide how high or low to select players. Much of the decision is based on talent and how scouts project talent to develop or not develop. Scouts and their front-office bosses also deal with murky topics such as, in baseball parlance, make-up. This is has nothing to do with lipstick or rouge. It is the sports lingo for character. Its huge, Mr. Bane said of make-up. Teams also like players with leadership qualities. Former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was a leader. But radar guns and stopwatches cant be employed with leadership. How do you measure that? Mr. Bane said.The changing timesTeams employ more scouts and have more information on players than ever before. Websites are dedicated to collecting statistics on high school players. Scouts and team executives can look at video of players in high school games or what are called showcases, a place where top players go to display their skills and raw athletic ability. Mr. Radcliff recalled that the first year he worked for the Twins there were five team officials in the draft room on draft day. Now, he said, there can be as many as 38 team officials in what is presumably a larger room on draft day. Scouts have been a part of baseball nearly as long as the sport has existed on a pro level. Author Kevin Kerranes book on scouting, Dollar Sign on the Muscle, The World of Baseball Scouting, was published in 1985. The dollar signs have grown since then and the profession has evolved. In his book Mr. Kerrane included a 1911 scouting report from scout Larry Sutton on a young man named Casey Stengel: Good hands, good power, runs exceptionally well, nice gl ove, left-handed line drive hitter. Good throwing arm. May be too damn aggressive, bad temper. Mr. Stengel went on to a fine big-league playing career and a legendary run as manager of the New York Yankees. More than a century ago scouts were beating the bushes looking for the next Casey Stengel and they continue doing so as the game, society, economics and culture changed. Mr. Kerrane wrote that when pitcher and future Hall of Famer Bob Feller signed in the 1930s his bonus was $1 and an autographed baseball. Much else has change since Mr. Kerranes book was published. Mr. Cedarburg said many young players now have personal trainers and know more about nutrition and strength training even since his days coaching at Edison Community College. The kids today are bigger, stronger and faster, Mr. Cedarburg said. Scouts now routinely use all sorts of electronic gizmos that werent available even when Joe Mauer was a kid. Like in any profession if you cant use a computer you get left behind, Mr. Bane said. That wasnt the case when Mr. Radcliff started filing scouting reports in 1983. Back then, Mr. Radcliff said, he typed up his reports with carbon copies and then mailed them away. Oh, and he needed stamps. Communication is the biggest way its (scouting) different, Mr. Radcliff said in a phone call from his Minnesota home. But what a scout did in 1911 is often the same as scouts do in 2018. Observe. Analyze. Project. What Mr. Sutt on did in 1911 scouting a young Casey Stengel might not be that different from what scouts do in 2018. Scouting in its basic form hasnt changed much, Mr. Radcliff said. Scouting is in many ways a profession of experience and learning from mentors. I still tell guys I learn more from 9, 10 p.m. to after midnight listening to the older guys talk, Mr. Radcliff said. Thats what he did as a young scout in the 1980s and what he urges young scouts to do now. Soak up the wisdom and experience of veteran scouts. Listen to the old guys, the stories, Mr. Radcliff said. And, Mr. Radcliff said, young scouts need experience. It can take five years to become a productive scout, Mr. Radcliff said.The Game, The LifeJaymie Bane was born to the game and remains in it. Hes not a butcher, baker or candlestick maker. Hes a baseball scout. Its what I know, Mr. Bane said. Unlike Mr. Cedarburg, Mr. Banes focus is the pros, not high school players. Hes responsible to scout the Pirates, Phillies and Mets, from Class A leagues to the big leagues. Whether assessing amateurs as potential draftees or professionals Mr. Bane pointed out the ultimate goal is the same getting the right players to help the Red Sox win the World Series. Drafting the best players and signing the best free agents and making the best trades all are critical elements in building championship teams. That building begins with scouting. All 30 teams need scouts such John Cedarburg and Jaymie Bane. A great deal of work and travel goes into what they do. Reports have to be written. Judgments and recommendations made. But its not like other jobs. Its more than writing reports, Mr. Bane said. I get to watch baseball. He cant tear himself away. The sport gets in your blood. Mr. Bane said. Mr. Radcliff echoed him when he said, baseball is in my blood. Scouts are the lifeblood of the game. And they have been at least since 1911 when Larry Sutton f iled that sc outing report on Casey Stengel.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com FEBRUARY 2018 SPRING TRAINING 15 BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentJust about all ingredients needed to turn a baseball season into a toxic stew of disappointment were ladled out before and over the course of 2017 for the Boston Red Sox. Beloved Red Sox icon David Ortiz retired after the 2016 season. He did not go doddering and limping off into the sunset like so many great sluggers have before him. His 2016 season at age 40 may have been the best farewell season ever for a hitter. Mr. Ortiz hit .315 with 38 homers, 127 RBI and a league-leading 48 doubles. There was no way to replace his presence in the lineup or fill his leadership void in the dugout and clubhouse. And they didnt. In 2016 Rick Porcello was 21-4 and won the Cy Young Award. In 2017 he slumped to 11-17. Injuries limited left-handed pitcher David Price to 11 starts and a 6-3 record. Second baseman Dustin Pedroia, an outstanding defender and hitter, was slowed by knee woes, hitting .293 in 105 games. Yet. The 2016 Red Sox were 93-69 and won the American League East. The 2017 Red Sox were 93-69 and won the American League East. That wasnt good enough for Red Sox ownership. Especially after the team was bounced out of the playoffs by the eventual World Series champion Houston Astros. Manager John Farrell was fired after the season and replaced by Alex Cora. How did the 2017 Red Sox manage to duplicate their 2016 record? A combination of great young talent and solid veterans propelled the Red Sox to another divisional title. Mr. Cora is certainly well aware of the talented roster he has inherited. The veterans include ace Chris Sale from the Chicago White Sox and a shutdown closer in Craig Kimbrel. Most of the pieces return for the 2018 season. Those pieces include three young players who may comprise the best defensive outfield in baseball. All three could play centerfield in the big leagues and play it well and not one is close to 30 and all three are less than six feet tall. Right fielder Mookie Betts has the most glittering resume, sporting a runnerup in the 2016 MVP voting and two Gold Gloves. Veteran Red Sox beat writer Ian Browne pointed out on mlb.com the only other Red Sox right fielder with two Gold Gloves is Dwight Evans. Only two other Red Sox outfielders, Fred Lynn and Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, have won two or more Gold Gloves. Centerfielder Jackie Bradley, Jr. isnt as good a hitter as Mr. Betts but he is an outstanding defensive player with a great arm. Left fielder Andrew Benitendi has what might be the sweetest swing in the game, just from an aesthetics point of view. But its more than a pretty swing. Mr. Benitendi, 23, hit .271 with 20 homers and 90 RBI and plays defense with an effortless grace reminiscent of Mr. Lynn in his prime in the 1970s. One of the mainstays of the Red Sox infield for more than a decade has been 34-year-old Mr. Pedroia. But hes recovering from knee surgery will likely miss several weeks of the season. Like the outfield, the left side of the Red Sox infield is young. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts, 25, hit .273 last in 2017 and is now the elder statesmen of that side of the infield. Third baseman Rafael Devers, 21, came to the majors last year as a baby-faced 20-year-old and proved he belonged, hitting .284 with 10 homers and 30 RBI in 222 at-bats. He kept hitting in the playoffs, posting a .364 batting average against the Astros. He could be a third base fixture for the Red Sox for many years to come. First baseman Mitch Moreland resigned with the Red Sox over the winter and is a steady presence with his glove and bat. Mr. Moreland won a Gold Glove in 2016 when he was with the Texas Rangers. Hes certainly no David Ortiz as a hitter but then who is? Mr. Moreland, though, is a reliable and steady hitter who has hit 22 or 23 homers in each of his past four full seasons. Marco Hernandez will likely play second base until Mr. Pedroia returns to the lineup. Mr. Hernandez has hit .284 in 61 games for the Red Sox over the past two seasons. Catcher Christian Vazquez hit .290 in 2017 and will likely be the teams primary catcher this year. The primary DH is veteran Hanley Ramirez. The 34-year-old is coming off a year in which he hjt .242 with 23 homers. Mr. Ramirez is a career .291 hitter but the last time he hit .300 or better was 2013. The starting rotation is headed by lefty Chris Sale, a former Florida Gulf Coast University standout, who was 17-8 with a 2.90 ERA last year. Mr. Sale was 0-2 with an 8.38 ERA in the playoffs. Then comes Mr. Porcello, who is coming off a stark contrast in seasons. In 2016, he was 22-4 and led the American League in wins. In 2017, he was 11-17 and led the league in losses. Neither is likely to happen again. The starting rotations back end will likely include Drew Pomeranz and Eduardo Rodriguez. Mr. Pomeranz was 17-6 in 2017 and Mr. Rodriguez was 6-7. Is this team good enough to win a third consecutive divisional title? It wont be easy. The New York Yankees have added Giancarlo Stanton to an already potent lineup, which includes Aaron Judge. No matter what happens the 2017 Boston Red Sox should be a fun team to watch. Jalen BeeksThe most famous Beeks, real or fictional, in American history may be the villainous Clarence Beeks from the 1983 film Trading Places. That was released 10 years before Red Sox pitching prospect Jalen Beeks was born. This Beeks, a 5-foot-11 left-handed pitcher, is marking a mark in the minors and may someday carve out a bit of fame for himself. Mr. Beeks was selected on the 12th round of the 2014 draft out of the University of Arkansas, where he had been teammates with Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi, who the Red Sox selected with the seventh overall pick in the 2015 draft. Mr. Beeks was named the Red Sox Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2017 when he was a combined 11-8 with a 3.29 ERA in stops at Double-A and Triple-AAA. Although soxprospects.com referred to him as undersized the website also said he can hit 95 mph with his fastball. Clarence Beeks sure as heck couldnt do that.Michael ChavisThe Red Sox have outstanding players standing less than six feet. For example: Dustin Pedroia, 5-foot-9. Mookie Betts, 5-9. Andrew Benitendi 5-10. Jackie Bradley, Jr. 5-10. Perhaps the 5-10 Michael Chavis will join them some day. Mr. Chavis, the 26th overall selection in the 2014 draft, was named the organizations minor league offensive player of the year in 2017 when he hit a combined .282 with 31 homers, 35 doubles and 94 RBI in stops in A and Double-A. He was named to the Carolina League All-Star team last year. Mr. Chavis was drafted out of Sprayberry High School in Marietta, Ga.Jason GroomeHis numbers in two seasons in the low minors dont glitter, by any means. Jason Groome has a 3-9 record with a 5.37 ERA combined between rookie ball and Class A. But hes only 19. He was 17 when the Red sox selected him 12th overall in the 2016 draft out of Barnegat High School in Barnegat Township, N. J. He signed a $3.65 million bonus. The 6-foot-6 Mr. Groome is a hardthrower who has been worked out this off-season with Red Sox ace Chris Sale, a Naples resident. At 19, Mr. Sale was a freshman at Florida Gulf Coast University and yet to face professional hitters. Red SoxA look ahead

16 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYPirates all-time team BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe Pittsburgh Pirates spent 14 spring trainings in Fort Myers, fr om 1955 through 1968. In that time they claimed a World Series title in 1960 with one of the most famous homers ever. That was second baseman Bill Mazeroskis walk-off homer in Game 7 against the New York Yankees in Forbes Field. In that nearly decade and a half the Pirates called Fort Myers their spring home their roster included three future Hall of Famers, Mr. Mazeroski, Willie Stargell and the greatest Pirate ever, the incomparable right fielder Roberto Clemente. Florida Weekly thought it would be fun to pick an all-time Pirates team from the years they spent training at Terry Park in east Fort Myers. A couple of selections were mindnumbingly easy Mr. Clemente in right and Mr. Mazeroski at second base. But what about Mr. Stargell? Should be he listed as the all-time teams left fielder or first baseman? He played both in his career. Read on to find out what we chose for the slugger. STARTING PITCHER: Vern Law was 20-9 with a 3.08 ERA for the pennantwinning 1960 Pirates and was named the National Leagues Cy Young Award winner. He played for the Pirates for nearly the entire time they trained in Fort Myers and bet ween 1955 and 1966 had nine seasons in which he won 10 or more games. Fun fact: His son Vance played in the majors from 1980 to 1991. STARTING PITCHER: Bob Friend was 22-14 with the 1958 Pirates, leading the National League in victories. He first reached the Pirates in 1951, four years before they moved to Fort Myers. He was an All-Star in 1956, 1958, 1960 and 1961. His 2.83 ERA in 1955 led the league. Fun fact: His middle name is Bartmess. RELIEF PITCHER: Elroy Face was only 5-foot-8 but was a giant of a reliever known for his forkball. Referencing his stature, Sports Illustrated said this of him in 1963: Looks like the prize in the bottom of a Cracker Jack box. He was 18-1 in 1959 His .947 winning percentage that season is still a bigleague record. He saved three games for the Pirates in the 1960 World Series. Face started the 1959 season with a 17-0 record before finally losing a game. Fun fact: He became a carpenter after his career ended. CATCHER: Smoky Burgess played for the Pirates fr om 1959 to 1 964, his age 31 to age 37 seasons. Never regarded as a good defensive catcher, the pudgy Mr. Burgess could always hit. In his six years with the Pirates he hit .296. He set a record for career pinch hits with 145 that SEE PIRATES, 18 Our Goal is to help you maintain and extend your vehicles life.

18 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYhas since been exceeded. Fun Fact: The Society for American Baseball Research found this quote on Burgess from The Great American Baseball Card Flipping, Trading, and Bubble Gum Book: I would venture to say that Smoky Burgess was probably the fattest man ever to play professional baseball. FIRST BASE: Willie Stargell played a great deal of outfield early in his career but were going to place him at first base on the Florida Weekly all-time Fort Myers spring training Pirates squad. The future Hall of Famer made his debut with the Pirates in 1962 but didnt become a force in the lineup until 1964. He hit between 20 and 33 homers in each season from 1964 to 1968. He also posted two 100-RBI seasons in that time before the Pirates moved their spring home to Bradenton. FUN FACT: His full name was Wilver Dornell Stargell. SECOND BASE: Bill Mazeroski is still considered one of the best defensive second baseman ever. He won eight Gold Gloves but is perhaps best remembered for one of the most famous homers ever, the only Game 7 World Series walk-off ever. It came in 1960 off the Yankees Ralph Terry in Forbes Field and gave the Pirates a 10-9 victory. Fun fact: Mazeroski, a 2001 Hall of Fame inductee, led National League second baseman in double plays for eight consecutive seasons at one stretch. THIRD BASE: Don Hoak played in Pittsburgh from only 1959 to 19 62 but he was the starting third baseman on the championship 1960 team, hitting .282 with 16 homers. He was a dependable player, hitting .294 in 1959 and .298 in 1961. Fun facts: He married singer/actress Jill Corey and (this isnt fun) died of a heart attack at the age of 41. SHORTSTOP: Dick Groat was the National League MVP in 1960, when he led the league with a .325 batting average. He teamed up with Mr. Mazeroski to form what had to be one of the best DP combos of that time or any time. He played for the Pirates from 1955 to 1962 and led the National League in double plays five times. Fun facts: Mr. Groat was a two-time All-America basketball player at Duke, the national collegiate basketball player of the year in 1952 and the third overall pick in the 1952 NBA Draft. LEFT FIELD: Matty Alou missed out on the Pirates championship season but under the tutelage of hitting guru Harry Walker he blossomed. Mr. Alou won the 1966 National League batting title, hitting .342. Second in the batting title race that year was his brother Felipe of the Atlanta Braves, who hit .327. Mr. Alou kept up his fine hitting for the Pirates, hitting .337 in 1967 and .332 in 1968, when he lost the batting title by three points to Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds. Fun fact: Matty, Felipe and their brother Jesus were all outfielders together with the San Francisco Giants in 1963. CENTERFIELD: Bill Virdon was an outstanding defensive centerfielder for the Pirates from 1956 through 1968 and was a key part of the 1960 championship team. He was also a fine hitter, posting a .266 average with 72 homers and 217 doubles in his years with the Pirates. He won a Gold Glove in 1962. Fun fact: He played football, basketball and ran track at West Plains High School in Missouri but didnt play baseball. The school didnt have a baseball team. RIGHT FIELD: Local fans were blessed from 1958 through 1968 to see one of the games icons every spring at Terry Park. Roberto Clemente was only a 20-year-old rookie in 1955 hitting a mere .255. But the Pirates were patient. They knew they had a gem. Mr. Clemente blossomed into one of the games legends, a winner of 12 Gold Gloves and four batting titles. Entire books have been written about Mr. Clemente and his name and legend endure nearly half a century after his death in 1972 on a rescue mission to aid earthquake victims in Nicaragua. FUN FACT: Major League Baseballs humanitarian award is called the Roberto Clemente Award. It is awarded every season to one player who best exemplifies Mr. Clementes character and community spirit.

20 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSpring awards BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWe see them first, well before Opening Day. Were the first every year to see the magical outfield play of men such as Mookie Betts and Byron Buxton. Were the first every year to see the wizardry of infielders such as Dustin Pedroia and Brian Dozier. And were the first every year to see hard-working managers such as the Minnesota Twins Paul Molitor, who was named the American Leagues 2017 Manager of the Year. Mr. Betts of the Boston Red Sox and Mr. Buxton of the Minnesota Twins won 2017 American League Gold Gloves for defensive excellence. That same award was bestowed on Mr. Longoria, the former Tampa Bay Rays third baseman, and Mr. Dozier, the Twins second baseman. Southwest Florida fans and visitors see them at Hammond Stadium, JetBlue Park and Charlotte Sports Park as they prepare for the grind of another 162game season. In the wake of four players on teams that train in Southwest Florida winning Gold Gloves and Molitor earning the Manager of the Year honor got Florida Weekly thinking. This is hardly unprecedented for players on teams training in Southwest Florida teams. We looked it up. The history of players on teams that train in Southwest Florida going on to win major awards is extensive. We burrowed deep into the treasure trove of baseball history on baseball-reference. com and compiled lists. The lists includes Hall of Famers Roberto Clemente, Jimmie Foxx, Pedro Martinez, Lefty Gr ove, Mickey Cochrane and George Brett.GOLD GLOVE WINNERSThey are too numerous to mention but we will mention five with Southwest Florida spring training ties and where they rank among the most numerous winners at their position.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com FEBRUARY 2018 SPRING TRAINING 25 BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWhen the 2017 Minnesota Twins reported to spring training expectations werent high. How could they be high after what happened in 2016? The 2016 Twins finished 59-103, a colossal 35.5 games behind the firstplace Cleveland Indians in the America League Central. The 2016 Twins couldnt do anything. They couldnt hit, field, pitch or run the bases. So, what happened in 2017? The Twins went 85-77, a 26-game improvement over 2016. They snagged the second wild-card playoff berth. Manager Paul Molitor was named American League Manager of the Year. Although the New York Yankees bounced the Twins out of the playoffs in that one-game wild-card showdown, it was clear the young talent the organization has been stockpiling for years was blossoming in 2017. More blossoming is possible in 2018. A glance at the 2018 Twins should start with breathtaking centerfielder Byron Buxton, a defensive marvel who not only won the American League Gold Glove for defensive excellence but also the Platinum Award. That award, which began in 2011, is given to the very best defensive player in each league. Mr. Buxton was certainly that in 2017, displaying the athletic ability that made him a legend at Appling County High in Georgia and the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 MLB draft. When he pitched in high school, Mr. Buxton was clocked at 99 mph off the mound. When he played football he was a dominant player. What position did he play in football? His best position in football was anywhere he wanted to be, Appling County football coach J. T. Pollock told espn.com. There is no doubt about Mr. Buxtons defensive ability but his hitting is still a work in progress. He hit .253 with 16 homers, 51 RBI and stole 29 bases last year. Good enough, to be sure, for a Platinum Award winner. Mr. Buxton is flanked by two other dynamic young outfielders. They both represent the games modern international flavor. Right fielder Max Kepler, 24, was born in Germany. Both his parents were ballet dancers. He inherited their athletic ability and at age 7 was awarded a scholarship to the Steffi Graf Tennis Federation. He also played soccer and played it so well that bleacherreport. com said he was a prodigy in that sport in his early teens. But he chose baseball and the 6-foot-4 Mr. Kepler hit .243 with 19 homers and 69 RBI last year. He should continue blossoming. Left fielder Eddie Rosario is from Puerto Rico. Mr. Rosario hit a robust .290 with 27 homers and 78 RBI in 2016 and at age 26 should continue improving. The infield is anchored by veteran first baseman Joe Mauer, another multisport prep wonder much like Mr. Buxton. Mr. Mauer, who turns 35 on April 19, hit .305 in 2016, his first season hitting .300 since 2013. He was the national high school football player of the year at Derham-Cretin High in St. Paul, Minn. In two years as a starting quarterback threw for 5,528 yards and 73 touchdowns. He turned down college football offers and signed with the Twins out of high school. Early in his Twins career when he was a catcher, Mr. Mauer won three batting titles between 2006 and 2009. Hes not the hitter he was when a young player but is still a solid hitter and has developed into a fine first baseman. Second baseman Brian Dozier has blossomed into a big-time power hitter, coming off a .271 season with 34 homers and 93 RBI. In 2016, Mr. Dozier hit 42 homers. The only player in Twins history with more homers in a season is Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew. The left side of the infield features two 24-year-old players. The 2017 season was shortstop Jorge Polancos first full season in the majors. He hit .256 with 13 homers, 74 RBI and 30 doubles. Third baseman Miguel Sano looks big enough to play linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings. The 6-foot-4 Sano is listed as 260 pounds but likely played much of the 2017 season at considerably more than 260 pounds. He missed six weeks with a leg injury but still hit .264 with 28 homers and 77 RBI. Catcher Jason Castro, 30, is heading into his second season with the Twins after playing six years with the Houston Astros. He hit .242 with 10 homers and 47 RBI in 2017. The primary DH is 28-year-old Robbie Grossman, who is coming off a season when he hit .246 with nine homers and 45 RBI. Veteran Ervin Santana, 35, heads the starting rotation. He was 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA last year. The No. 2 starter is 23-year-old Jose Berrios, who may have the biggest upside of any Twins starter. The former first-round draft choice was 14-8 with a 3.89 ERA in 2017. In 2016, when he was still adjusting to the big leagues and stuck on a very bad team, Mr. Berrios was 3-7 with an 8.02 ERA. He was a better pitcher on a better team in 2017 and the results were apparent in his record. The third starter listed is Adelbart Mejia, who was 4-7 with a 4.50 ERA last year. The No. 4 starter according to the Twins off-season depth chart is Kyle Gibson, who was 12-10 with a 5.07 ERA last year. Three other pitchers are listed as potential starters. The Twins closer is the wandering Fernando Rodney, who turns 41 on March 18. Since 2013 he has played for the Rays, Mariners, Cubs, Padres, Marlins and Diamondbacks. With the Diamonbacks last year he was 5-4 with 39 saves. Mr. Rodney has 300 career saves and is a three-time All-Star. But now that hes in his early 40s how much does he have left? Twins fans will find out. And theyll also find out if the 2018 Twins will be like the 2016 version or the 2017 version of the team. Royce LewisYou may not see young Mr. Lewis during spring training this year. Hes only 18 and less than a year out of J. Serra High School in California and almost certainly will spend most if not all of his time during spring training in minor-league camp. But remember the name. The Twins selected the shortstop first overall in the 2017 draft. The last time the Twins selected first overall was 2001 when they chose catcher Joe Mauer. The Twins, according to 1500espn.com, reportedly sent about 16 scouts to check out Mr. Lewis. They wanted to be sure. After signing a $6.725 million contract, Mr. Lewis reported to Fort Myers and played in 36 games in the Gulf Coast League, hitting .271. That earned him a promotion to the Cedar Rapids Kernals of the Class A Midwest League, where he hit .296 in 18 games. Royce Lewis doesnt turn 19 until June 5.Nick GordonMaybe like father, like son. Mr. Gordons father Tom pitched 21 years in the big leagues, going 138-126 and saving 158 games. The younger Gordon has yet to reach the big leagues let alone carve out a very long career but he certainly has the potential. At Orlandos Olympia High School he hit .505 with two homers as a junior and was named the Florida Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year in 2013. He hit .512 with six homers as a senior. The Twins made him the fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft. Mr. Gordon has progressed steadily through the farm system, including a 2016 stop in Fort Myers with the Miracle, hitting .291 with 19 stolen bases. He was the starting shortstop in the 2017 Futures Game. He certainly appears to have a future in the same game where his father compiled an impressive resume.Fernando RomeroThe right-handed pitcher from the Dominican Republic has worked his way up through the Twins farm system despite a detour because of Tommy John surgery that cost him most of the 2014 season and all of 2015. Mr. Romero has compiled a 23-16 record with a 2.95 ERA in five minorleague seasons. In 303 1/3 innings hes struck out 294 and walked 92. His journey to the big leagues included a stop with the Miracle in 2016 when he was 5-2 with a 1.88 ERA in the Class A Florida State League. Mr. Romero pitched in 2017 for the Chattanooga Lookouts of the Double-A Southern League. He was 11-9 with a 3.53 ERA. He had 120 strikeouts and 45 walks in 125 innings. Mr. Romero continues pitching himself closer to a spot in the Twins bigleague rotation. Twinsprospects to watchTwins A look ahead

26 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe Pittsburgh Pirates arrived at Terry Park in 1955 f or their first spring training in Fort Myers on the heels of three consecutive 100-loss seasons. They were one of the worst franchises in professional sports, finishing last or next to last to last in the National League in each of the previous five seasons. America, not to mention Southwest Florida, was a vastly different place in 1955, on and off the field. No DH in the American League. No divisional play. No interleague play. No free agency. No instant replay. Florida hotels, restaurants, education and health care and seating at Terry Park were all segregated. Black fans had to sit in what was then called colored seating. The 1955 Pira tes featured a 20-year-old rookie named Roberto Clemente, who would go on to become one of the greatest players ever. Yet, Mr. Clemente, who was from Puerto Rico, couldnt stay with white teammates at the Bradford Hotel in downtown Fort Myers. He stayed at Etta Powells boarding house on Lime Street in a part of town then called Safety Hill but now known as Dunbar. That time and this place were recreated in author David Maraniss 2006 book, Clemente, The Passion and Grace of Baseballs Last Hero. The author mentioned the teams first spring in Fort Myers and how team president Branch Rickey talked to them before the first intrasquad game. He told them about what would be expected of them in training camp, and his aspirations for the season, and then briefly discussed the realities of race in Fort Myers, Maraniss wrote. This was the South, he told them. They were the Pittsburgh Pirates, but upon leaving the confines of the field, conditions were beyond the teams control. God knows it was damnably wrong, he said, but so it was. That was the Fort Myers where Clemente spent his first spring training with the team. Ten years later, in 1965, a white Fort Myers boy named Woody Hanson was hired by the team to work in the clubhouse picking up dirty laundry, running errands and venturing out to tasks such as stirring the soup in the press dining room. Now, looking back, he realizes what the clubhouse meant to the team, particularly players of color. I get it now, Mr. Hanson said on a cool December morning, sitting on the porch at Bennetts Fresh Roast in Fort Myers. Inside that clubhouse, that was a sanctuary from what was going on out in the world. There were a large percentage of them who were other than white Anglo-Saxon Protestant. Im sure there were times they were on pins and needles. In the Pirate years a man named Park Pigott was first the city of Fort Myers Parks and Rec director and then took the same position with Lee County. His two sons and daughter enjoyed the run of Terry Park and got to know the Pirates a bit. Melissa Pigott is now 61 and has a Ph.D. in social psychology but in the 1960s was a kid. When a game or practice wasnt being held she could run on the ball field. I loved the soda machine, said Dr. Pigott, who wasnt allowed to have soft drinks at home. But in magical Terry Park she was allowed to indulge. Her two brothers are older and played baseball and enjoyed closer connections to the Pirates. Fort Myers resident Frank Pigott, said as a boy he played catch with Mr. Clemente and helped him with his English. I always had my glove, s aid Mr. Pigott, who still remembers the time he played catch with a legend. Park Pigott, Jr. now resides in McCaysville, Ga. He used to help his dad around the ballpark, raking infield clay and cutting grass. Theres something else he remembers vividly. Roberto Clemente gave me a bat, Mr. Pigott said. I wish I still had that bat today. It could be worth $30,000. But back then bats werent viewed as investments. Mr. Pigott said he used the bat and it eventually was broken and he SOUTHWEST FLORIDA HISTORICAL SOCIETYA spring training tradition in the 1950s and 1960s was sending coconuts back north to the Pirate fans in Pittsburgh.SOUTHWEST FLORIDA HISTORICAL SOCIETYAerial view of Terry Park circa 1960.

28 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYthrew it in the trash. Park Pigott died in 1972 at the age of 58, only four years after the Pirates left. The stadium at Terry Park is named for him. Terry Park remains a magical place for men such as the Pigotts and Mr. Hanson, who worked for the Pirates each of their final four years in Fort Myers. The Pirates final year training in Fort Myers was 1968, 50 years ago, half a century. A half-century before their final season at Terry Park World War I was raging and Babe Ruth was a left-handed pitcher with the Boston Red Sox. When the Pirates started training at Terry Park there was no Cape Coral or bridge to Sanibel Island. The areas only TV station, WINK, had gone on the air in 1954. There wasnt an Edison Mall or Edison Junior College, which has since evolved into Florida SouthWestern State College. There wasnt an Interstate-75 in the area or the Internet or ESPN anywhere. The Pirates moved into an $80,000 seat ballpark without amenities common in 21st century ballparks. No suites or fancy food at concession stands or weight rooms or video rooms. By contrast, when the Boston Red Sox moved into JetBlue Park in 2012 it sported a roughly $80 million price tag and it features weight rooms and video rooms and suites. No matter how modest the 1955 stadium was, the Pirates gradually improved and edged closer to greatness their first few years in Fort Myers. In 1955 they finished last again but lost only 94 games. They kept adding players and by 1960 they were primed.The Championship Season Spring TrainingWhen the Pirates reported to spring training in 1960 shoppers could buy a four-pound canned ham for $2.99 at the Kwik Chek. The store also sold half gallons of Clorox for 29 cents. A two-bedroom home on a seawall lot in Whiskey Creek was going for $30,000, according to a classified ad in The NewsPress. At the time there was still only one television station in Southwest Florida WINK. In the evenings after workouts or games the Pirates could catch shows such as Rawhide and Sunset Strip and Have Gun Will Travel and Gunsmoke on little sets that almost certainly had rabbit ears on top. The Gene Krupa Story starring Sal Mineo was playing at the Arcade Theater in downtown Fort Myers. There werent any multiplexes back then. The Pirates spring training home schedule that year included teams that no longer exist in the same cities the Kansas City As, Milwaukee Braves and Washington Senators. By the way, those Senators became the Minnesota Twins and now train at CenturyLink Sports Complex in Fort Myers. Fans at Terry Park witnessed a miracle of sorts on March 15, 1960. The Pirates overcame an 11-0 deficit to beat the As 17-13. The miracle wasnt in overcoming such a deficit but it was in the time of game three hours and four minutes. Such a game now would certainly last more than four hours. Overcoming an 11-0 deficit in a meaningless Grapefruit League game in the middle of March was a subtle taste of what the Pirates would achieve in October. There were other hints that the 1960 Pirates might be on the verge of something special. The News-Press carried an Associated Press story on March 16 about how pitcher Bob Friend had slimmed down. In 1959, the somewhat portly Friend had lost 19 games. But he predicted that he would win 20 in 1960. Mr. Friend weighed 214 pounds in 1959 but estimated his weight was down 15-to20 pounds for the 1960 season. Three days after that story appeared Mr. Friend pitched five shutout innings against the Detroit Tigers in Lakelands Henley Field. The Pirates were on a spring training roll that continued for much of the second half of March, perhaps providing a hint that they were a very good team. Spring training records can be a mirage of course but maybe their Grapefruit League run was a hint of what was to come. After the winning streak reached nine games News-Press sports editor Len Harsh let readers know what he thought of the Pirates. He wrote this in a column: They have looked tremendous as far as the wonlost record goes but the big question still remains: Can they keep up their hot pace when the season begins? The Pirates pushed their spring-training winning streak to 11 games around the same time McDonalds was advertising 15-cent hamburgers. A national anthem kerfuffle flared up in the newspaper that spring. It wasnt a controversy anything on the scale of what has cropped up with NFL players in recent years but something was going on at Terry Park that ruffled the feathers of a patriot. The mailbag carried a letter that spring from a man named Eugene G. Bucher, who wrote the following: How about doing something about the playing of the national anthem at the start of the ballgames at Terry Park? Remember, one nation indivisible under God. No other reference to the national anthem was found in the paper during spring training. Then as now spring training was a time for getting ready for the season. The time was needed, based on what happened when the Chicago White Sox beat the Pirates 4-3 in a game that featured eight errors. White Sox shortstop Luis Aparicio, a future Hall of Famer, made two errors. The money was a great deal different then. The News-Press published an item reporting that a Pirate would receive a $5 check for each homer from the NaplesFort Myers Kennel Club. Mr. Clemente, the greatest player in Pirates history, made $17,500 in 1960. Thats certainly very modest but according to an online inflation calculator that would be worth somewhere between $115,000 and $130,000 now. Thats good money but a player of Mr. Clementes sublime skills would now make several million dollars a year now, perhaps even $20 million or more a year. Of course, a buck went a lot further back then. Penneys was advertising mens sports coats that spring for $12.95. As spring training wound down Mr. Harsh let his readers know what he really thought of these guys. When and if the Pirates win the world championship we sincerely hope that they will continue to conduct themselves in the same gentlemanly way and show the same sportsmanship that they do now, Mr. Harsh wrote in a March 31, 1960 column. Theyre champs when it comes to that. Fort Myers resident Walter Grace has fond memories of the gentlemen who played for the Pirates. He turned 15 in 1959 and recalls being a passenger on what he called a puddle-jumper of a plane flying out of Page Field. At the time he was a catcher on a prep school team in Tennessee. Also on the plane was Pirates catcher Smoky Burgess. The kid and the catcher chatted. I told him I was a catcher, Mr. Grace said. Some time later a package came in the mail. It was from Mr. Burgess. It was a catchers mitt. And not just any mitt one could find in a department stores sporting goods section. The most expensive one, Mr. Grace said. It was little acts such as that displayed by Mr. Burgess that helped endear the Pirates to the community. Another spring training highlight that year was a 40-year-old rookie pitcher named Diomedes Olivo. Yes, that is right a 40-year-old rookie. A headline in the paper noted that the rookie bids for job with Pirates. Mr. Olivo eventually made the team, pitching 9 2/3 innings for the team in September. After its 11-game winning streak Pittsburgh endured a six-game losing streak, including a 5-0 loss to the New York Yankees, who they would face in the World Series. They concluded spring training with a 15-10 record and then flew to Milwaukee, which was then the home of the Braves. The 1960 season was the final one in which each league had only eight teams. Divisional play was still nine years in the future. The format was simple in that era before playoffs. The regular-season winners of the American and National League met in the World Series. The Pirates won the National League pennant. The Yankees won the American League pennant.The Championship Season The World SeriesIt was no surprise the Yankees won the American League pennant. They seemed to win just about every year in those days. The 1960 pennant was their ninth since 1949 and they had won the World Series seven times in that stretch. The Pirates were back in the World Series for the first time since 1927, when the Yankees swept them. The 1960 Yankees were a formidable bunch, one brimming with supreme talents such as Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, Roger Maris, Yogi Berra and a very strong supporting cast. The World Series began Oct. 1, 1960, only about three weeks after Hurricane Donna roared through Southwest Florida. The Pirates likely seemed to have little chance against the juggernaut of all sports franchises. The teams presence in the World Series was also a big deal in their spring training home. Many fans traveled to Pittsburgh and New York to see their team. The newspaper sent sports editor Len Harsh to Pittsburgh and New York for the first five games. Fans in Fort Myers could buy a Philco briefcase portable TV for $148.88 with only $5 down to watch the game. The Pirates won Game 1 6-4 and pitcher Elroy Face was already talking about Fort Myers and hoping for a short series. Then my wife and I are going to Fort Myers to relax and do some fishing, Mr. Face said. It wouldnt be a short series. Not against those Yankees. They thumped the Pirates 16-3 in Game 2 with Mickey Mantle belting two homers. Mr. Harsh quoted a Fort Myers fan named Chuck Ross who was in Forbes Field for the shellacking and endured a seven-run sixth inning by the Yankees. When you gotta lose thats the way to lose, Mr. Ross said. These Pirates have fought back all year and they will fight back again. But I will admit that I was a pretty sick boy at the end of that big sixth inning. Then it was on to New York for Game 3, which the Yankees won 10-0. The Pirates lost two games by a combined 26-3 score. They also trailed the series 2-1. It didnt look good for the boys who trained at Terry Park. Mr. Harsh talked to a Fort Myers resident he identified as Mrs. Sam Galloway. SOUTHWEST FLORIDA HISTORICAL SOCIETYThe Pirates were a big deal for local merchants back in the 1950s and 1960s. SUMMERFrom page 26

He didnt provide a first name for the woman. Mrs. Galloway said, What has happened to our Pirates? I surely thought they would do better when they got to New York. Meanwhile, back in Fort Myers some residents werent happy to hear junior high and Fort Myers High students could listen to the games on the radio during school hours. It compelled a North Fort Myers resident to write a letter to the editor. I understand the students in the junior and senior high schools are allowed to hear the games over the intercom, the resident wrote. What does this teach out students? What education do they get out of it? Are they graded on this subject? If they have their regular subjects how can they concentrate on their work with the game on the intercom? No wonder Russia is ahead. Please someone answer. The letter was signed Interested North Fort Myers. Meanwhile, the Pirates re-grouped and took a 3-2 series lead going back to Pittsburgh for the final two games. Then, on the same day Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev pounded the lectern with his shoe at the U. N. in New York, the Yankees pounded the Pirates 12-0 in Game 6. In their three victories, the Yankees had outscored the Pirates 38-3. In their three victories, the Pirates had outscored the Yankees 14-8. But where it counted it was tied 3-3 in games. Game 7 would be played on the afternoon of Oct. 13, 1960 in Forbes Field. Fans back in Fort Myers were watching and would see something never before done and not done since. Pirates second baseman Bill Mazeroski rocketed a walk-off home run off the Yankees Ralph Terry to give the Pirates a 10-9 Game 7 victory. It was the first walk-off Game 7 homer in World Series history. There has yet to be a second. Six-year-old Woody Hanson listened to the game on the radio at his home on Shadow Lane in Fort Myers. There were no night World Series games then. All the games were played in the afternoon. I stayed home from school, said Mr. Hanson, now 63. I played hooky. I remember laying in the den in 1960. It had a nice, clean parquet floor. Laying on the floor with a radio listening to Game 7. He still recalls hearing the call of Mr. Mazeroskis home run. He doesnt remember the details but remembers hearing that the home run won the World Series for the Pirates. The Game 7 triumph was big sports news around the country. That was certainly the case in Fort Myers where The News-Press splashed it across Page 1 with this headline: Bucs Beat Em Fort Myers Goes Nuts. A caravan of about 150 cars drove to the Boulevard Plaza Shopping Center, which no longer exists. In those days long before Twitter, Fort Myers Mayor George M. French sent a telegram to the Pirates, telling them, All Fort Myers is rejoicing with you. While the Pirates and their fans celebrated, the Yankees were stunned. The Associated Press reported that superstar Mickey Mantle was in tears in the dressing room. The AP reported that Mr. Mantle was concerned about shortstop Tony Kubek, who had been hit in the throat by a bad hop ground ball. Hows Tony? Mr. Mantle asked. They tell me his windpipe is broken. Mr. Kubek recovered and went on to enjoy a long career on the field and then in the telecast booth. The Yankees bounced back and returned to the World Series the next four years. The Pirates returned to Fort Myers in 1961 for another spring training at Terry Park. But they had only a few more years in Terry Park. The Final Fort Myers SpringThe nature of spring training is that eventually most teams leave for other cities and nicer ballparks. Thats what brought the Pirates from Fort Pierce in 1955 By the late 1960s, they were ready to move again, this time to Bradenton. They played their final home game at Terry Park on April 2, 1968, beating the Oakland As 3-2. Woody Hanson remembers that game. It marked the end of his career as the teams clubhouse boy. Ill never forget, Mr. Hanson said. It was a rainy day. Thats not all he remembers. I remember Willie Stargell sitting on a steamer trunk and they all were being pushed to the door, Mr. Hanson said, referring to the teams slugger. The emotions of the day still remain vivid in his memory. I was sad, Mr. Hanson said. I knew I was experiencing the loss of something. I knew they were leaving. It meant a lot to me because I was losing my clubhouse, my backstage pass. Mr. Hanson said Simon and Garfunkels Homeward Bound was playing. Fort Myers was no longer the Pirates spring training home and hasnt been for half a century but it was their home during the bulk of Roberto Clementes luminous career. The memories live on.

Hardly. After the big-leaguers jet off to Minneapolis or Toronto or New York its time for the bus trips of the Class A Florida State League. The FSL season starts right after the final Grapefruit League games in many of the same ballparks and goes into early September, right through the cauldron of Florida summers and deep into hurricane seasons. The big leaguers are, in many cases, famous players who pop up often on national telecasts. The younger men in the FSL arent famous. Well, except for the case last year of one-time Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow taking a go at pro baseball in the New York Mets farm system and playing for the St. Lucie Mets. A few of the now largely unknown young men with the Fort Myers Miracle or Charlotte Stone Crabs or Bradenton Marauders will one day go from the bus leagues to the big leagues. How do we know that? Its always been the case, since before big-league teams used planes to get from city to city. The FSL alumni roster includes players now enshrined in the Hall of Fame.COURTESY PHOTOSRandy Johnson starred for the West Palm Beach Expos in 1986.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com FEBRUARY 2018 SPRING TRAINING 37RaysA look ahead BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe Tampa Bay Rays have been around since 1998, when they joined the American League as an expansion team called the Devil Rays. Their history can be broken into three phases: A: Pre-Evan Longoria B: Evan Longoria C: Post-Evan Longoria The Rays are now going into Phase C, trying to find their way through the jungle of the American League East without the best player in franchise history for the first time since the 2007 season. They traded Mr. Longoria to the San Francisco Giants just before Christmas. Merry Christmas, Rays fans. Mr. Longoria, a third baseman, was the teams cornerstone and key to their rise from the depths of the standings to a pennant and World Series appearance in 2008, his rookie season. That was the dawn of the Longoria Era. The Rays showed a startling 31-game improvement that year, won 97 games and the division title. It was the first of six consecutive winning seasons for the former doormat. That seems long ago and Longoria ago. The Rays will report to spring training at the Charlotte Sports Complex coming off four consecutive losing seasons. Now what? What will 2018 look like for this bargain basement team stuck in a division with financial heavy hitters such as the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees? Heck, who is going to play third base? As Florida Weekly prepared this preview over Christmas weekend it wasnt even clear who would replace Mr. Longoria at third base. He will be missed. That much is certain. Mr. Longoria is a three-time All-Star and winner of three Gold Gloves. He hit the most famous homer in franchise history, the walk-off blast down the left-field line in Game 162 of the 2011 season in Tropicana Field that propelled the Rays into the playoffs. Not only was he good he was durable, playing at least 156 games every year between 2013 and 2017 and the first four of those years played in at least 160 games. Third base? Will it be Christian Arroyo, who was acquired in the trade? Mr. Arroyo is from the Tampa Bay Area, having played at Hernando High School in Brooksville, which is not far north of Tropicana Field. Will it be Matt Duffy, who missed the 2016 season after heel surgery complications? Maybe it will be minor-league shortstop Willy Adames, who could be converted into a third baseman. What about Ryan Schimpf, who was listed first on the depth chart at third base over Christmas? This question might be answered during spring training. And there is a bigger question: Can the Rays compete in the Post-Longoria Era? Although their prospects for 2018 dont appear good in the dawning of the post-Longoria Era its not as if the Rays are a clown show, some sort of second coming of the 1962 New York Mets, a legendarily bad team that lost 120 teams. They were 80-82 last year and finished ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles. The Rays still have talent. Just not as much, it appears, as the Red Sox and Yankees. Shortstop Adeiny Hechavararria is a legit big-league shortstop, an infielder with range, soft hands and a strong arm. As Florida Weekly prepared this preview around Christmas there was talk of more trades. Great uncertainty surrounded the look of the 2018 Rays. It could be a long season for Manager Kevin Cash and the teams fans. The starting rotation has fine arms with Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi, Austin Pruitt, Jake Faria and Blake Snell heading the staff. The Rays will need Mr. Archer to pitch like an ace. In 2015, he was 12-13 with a 3.23 ERA but in 2016 he was 9-19 with a 4.02 ERA. In 2017 his record (1012) was better than the previous year but his ERA was slightly higher, 4.07. If the Rays starters and bullpen can get the game to closer Alex Colome the team will be in good shape. Mr. Colome was 2-3 last year with a league-leading 47 saves. In addition to losing Mr. Longoria the Rays may be going into the season without another slugger first baseman Logan Morrison, who hit 38 homers last year. Mr. Morrison was a free agent early in the winter and had not signed with another team. Brad Miller, who hit 30 homers in 2016, was penciled in at first base. In 2017, Mr. Miller hit .201 with nine homers and 40 RBI in 110 games. Second baseman Daniel Robertson hit .206 with five homers and 19 RBI in 218 at-bats last year. DH Corey Dickerson is coming off an outstanding year. He hit .282 with 27 homers and 62 RBI in 2017. The 2017 season was the first for veteran catcher Wilson Ramos with the Rays and he hit .260 with 11 homers and 35 RBI. Tampa Bays starting outfielders are all dynamic players with big upsides. Left fielder Mallex Smith is one of the games fastest players and is coming off a season in which he hit .270 with four triples and 16 stolen bases in 81 games. Centerfielder Kevin Kiermaier is one of the games best defensive players, a Gold Glove winner in 2015 and 2016. In 2015 he also won the Platinum Award as the best overall defensive player. Right fielder Steven Souza, Jr. had a breakout year in the power department, hitting .239 with 30 homers and 78 RBI. Will all these pieces be enough for the Rays to compete in the first year of the Post-Evan Longoria Era? Raysprospects to watchBrent HoneywellRight-handed pitcher Brent Honeywell was born in Carnesville, Ga. (pop. 577) and pitched at Walters State in Morristown, Tenn. (pop, 29,000.) He may be on his way to pitching in big-league stadiums, all of which have seating capacities larger than the combined populations of his hometown and college town. The Rays selected Mr. Honeywell in the second round of the 2014 draft and he has steadily progressed through their farm system, compiling a 31-19 record and 2.88 ERA. In 2017, Mr. Honeywell split the season between Double-A and Triple-A, going 13-9 with a 3.49 ERA. His father, Brent, played three seasons in the Pittsburgh Pirates farm system.Brendan MckayOne of the big off-season baseball headlines was the Los Angeles Angels signing Japanese two-way player Shohei Otani.Not as well known is a Rays prospect, a young man who also pitches and hits. That would be Brendan McKay, who the Rays selected with the fourth overall pick of the 2017 draft out of the University of Louisville. The first baseman/pitcher made his pro debut last year for Hudson Valley of the Class A Midwest League. He hit .232 with four homers in 36 games and was 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 20 innings. The Rays signed him for $7 million.Jesus SanchezJesus Sanchez was the Rays minor league player of the year in 2017. A measure of the Dominican outfielder/DHs talent and potential is to look at how well he has performed at young ages.In 2015, when he was 17, the same age most American ballplayers are in high school, he hit .335 with four homers and 45 RBI in the Dominican Summer League.At 18, he came to Florida and played in the Gulf Coast League, hitting .329. That earned him a promotion to the Appalachian League, where he hit .323. In 2017, at age 19, he moved up to the Midwest League, where he hit .305 with 15 homers and 82 RBI in 117 games. Hes now 20 and likely ready for the Charlotte Stone Crabs of the Class A Florida State League. And hell likely continue hitting.

Mr. Vaughn is now 50. As Ms. Arsenault learned her way around what was then a tiny gift shop on the stadium concourse current Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi was a baby who wouldnt turn 1 until July 6, 1995. Ms. Arsenault, a grandmother of three, has witnessed an evolution in the gift shop and a Red Sox spring training change of address in 2012, when they moved several miles south to JetBlue Park. Players come, players go. Ms. Arsenault remains. Managers come, managers go. Ms. Arsenault remains. How many managers? New manager Alex Cora is the eighth Red Sox manager since Ms. Arsenault started working in the gift shop. She started when Kevin Kennedy was manager and has been at work for the team through the regimes of Jimy Williams, Joe Kerrigan, Grady Little, Terry Francona, Bobby Valentine and John Farrell. Shes been a spring constant since two years after the team moved its spring training home from Winter Haven to Fort Myers in 1993. Now, nearly a quarter century after starting as a part-time worker, Ms. Arsenault is still on duty. Shes the boss. She hires the staff and orders the merchandise and designs memorabilia and oversees what has turned into a profitable sideline for the team during its six weeks in Florida. Like the Red Sox, she has two homes one in Massachusetts and one in Lee County. Ms. Arsenault, who was born on Long Island, was moved to Cape Cod when she was 6 months old. She grew up in West Harwich, and now resides, shes said, around the corner from her childhood home. Three blocks from the ocean, said Ms. Arsenault, who also has a North Fort Myers home.

FLORIDA WEEKLY FEBRUARY 2018 39Red Sox she worked for another famous institution in New England Thompsons Clam Bar. Very famous anywhere in the Northeast, Ms. Arsenault said one day in January, sitting in a seat in empty JetBlue Park. She started working there while a student at Cazenovia Junior College. I waitressed throughout my college years, Ms. Arsenault said. And the last year I was there they asked me to be assistant manager. Nine years later, Ms. Arsenault said, she was asked to become the restaurant manager. After the clam bar closed and the site became the Wychmere Beach Club, Ms. Arsenault remained. I worked on that property for 48 years, Ms. Arsenault said. When the Red Sox moved to Fort Myers in 1993, Ms. Arsenault and her husband, George, were intrigued by the teams new spring home. He said why dont you see if theres a job you can do, Ms. Arsenault said. She did and learned the team needed help in the gift shop. At the time she was still working fulltime on Cape Cod. Initially, she just worked game days. But a pattern of promotions from Thompsons Clam Bar repeated itself. Ms. Arsenault said after her third year in the gift shop she was asked to take over as its manager. She talked to a Red Sox executive about her approach to running the shop. I said if I do this its going to be nothing like it is now because Im going to run it like I run the restaurant, Ms. Arsenault said. Run it like a business and very quickly people left because they didnt like that. She set up scheduling and instituted a dress code and started hiring new people. At the time, the City of Palms Park gift shop was a fraction of the size of the one at JetBlue. Tiny, tiny, said Mr. Arsenault. Ms. Arsenault couldnt help noticing something about the apparel on sale. Theres not one thing in there for women, Ms. Arsenault said. If I wanted a jacket I had to buy a mans small or extra small. Small mans T-shirt. Theyre not made the same way and most of the buyers were women. Ms. Arsenault changed that as well, ordering apparel she thought would more likely appeal to women. I had pink, purple, yellow, green, Ms. Arsenault. Every color womens T-shirt you could think of. I had flamingoes and alligators and palm trees. The women went crazy. The professionalism and products helped the gift shops bottom line. Ms. Arsenault cant comment on revenue the store generates but she said when she first started the Red Sox didnt expect to make money. That changed about 20 years ago. What keeps Ms. Arsenault coming back to the gift shop every winter and working long hours in a place where she cant even see games? I love being busy, Ms. Arsenault said. Nothing, it seems, stops Doreen Arsenault. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. She kept working and is now fine. Running the gift shop means more than showing up on game days and opening the doors. She and her staff of more than 30 start cleaning up and stocking in January. Buying products is, she said, a year-round task. When she goes north after spring training she has an office in her Cape Cod home where she works and sometimes meets sales reps in Boston. When she hires people at JetBlue her instructions include what may seem obvious. Dont think youre going to see the games, Ms. Arsenault said. After more than 20 years she certainly knows gift shop workers cant see home plate or the Green Monster from their work stations. Thats OK with Doreen Arsenault. She still loves her job. I never felt like going to work was work, Ms. Arsenault said, sitting behind home plate. When the games start dont look for Doreen Arsenault to be sitting anywhere in JetBlue Park. She has work to do. 239-561-6817 Frankly Scallop, We give a Clam!Your Hometown Restaurant Locally Owned & Operated Since 1998 Y Y Y Y Entre Sample Selections: Priced $8.99-$23.99SHRIMP & GRITS COCONUT SHRIMP SHRIMP SCAMPI STUFFED SHRIMP SHRIMP RICE BOWL POPCORN SHRIMP FRIED, BROILED OR BLACKENED SHRIMP GRILLED SHRIMP SKEWERS BUFFAL O SHRIMP BOOM-BOOM SHRIMP ASIAN CHILI SHRIMP CHIPOTLE BBQ SHRIMP BUTTERY PARMESAN SHRIMP LEMON-PEPPER SHRIMPFRESH SALADS PORK CHICKEN STEAKS HAMBURGERS TACOS POBOYS HADDOCK MAHI SALMON COD SWAI CATFISH GROUPER SEA SCALLOPS BAY SCALLOPS OYSTERS CLAM BELLIES & STRIPS FLORIDA L OBSTER SNOW CRAB LEGS CALAMARI BROILED COMBINATION PLA TES FRIED COMBINATION PLATESCHEFS DAILY SPECIALS LIGHT EATERS MENU 10:305:30 DAILY (DINE IN ONLY) $7.99 (NO COUPONS) DRIVE THRU WHITE FISH SANDWICH SPECIAL 10:30-2:00 DAILY $4.99 (NO COUPONS) HOUSE MADE DESSERTS.

40 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe grandmother of 17 can be found game days at Hammond Stadium in Concession Stand B, at the top of the stands overlooking the gurgling ballpark fountain and near the breezeway leading to seats Thats where Joyce Yates waits on customers, handing over cheeseburgers or nachos and making change and focusing on working hard and being pleasant. The Cape Coral resident has been a staple at Minnesota Twins spring training games in the stadium for 10 years. Ms. Yates, 72, doesnt need the job. Shes a retired Ohio grade school teacher with a masters degree in education and her husband, Jim, is a retired cop. But Ms. Yates, who taught for 35 years, keeps coming back every spring. Theres something magical about working during ballgames, even ones she cant see from the cocoon of Concession Stand B. Ms. Yates takes pride in her work ethic. Shes there to work, not watch games or goof off. Ms. Yates could duck out of the concession stand and onto the concourse to sneak peeks at TV monitors showing games or perhaps dart up the breezeway to catch Twins DH Joe Mauer in an at-bat. But thats not Ms. Yates style. Im old school, Ms. Yates said. How would she describe her work ethic? Well, if you have a job to do you do it, Ms. Yates said. Ms. Yates talked as she sat in the stands behind home plate on a glorious December morning. The Hammond Stadium infield was torn up in preparation for new sod to be placed on it. Such calm moments in an empty stadium are not available on game days when several thousands fans troop into the ballpark. The game day atmosphere is vastly different from that of a quiet December morning. Its exciting, Ms. Yates said of game days. Everybody is up. Theres just that feeling of excitement. Everybodys just ready for whatever is going to happen in a game. The fans need concession workers such as Joyce Yates to be on their STEVIES 7 DAY LINE UP Monday-Friday offers are available after 3pm on day specied, Saturday & Sunday offers are available all day.

She learned a catchphrase from a young coworker about the attitude one should approach working in Concession Stand B, or anywhere. If you have time to lean, Ms. Yates said, you have time to clean. Its unlikely a fan stopping by Concession Stand B for a burger or beer will ever catch Joyce Yates leaning against a wall. She has a job to do and she plans to do her job. Although Ms. Yates is an Ohio State graduate and taught at elementary schools in Delaware, Ohio, she has been a Twins fan for many years. Her favorite all-time Twins player? I loved Kirby Puckett, said of the late Mr. Puckett, a Hall of Fame centerfielder. Oh, my gosh, he was a heartthrob. Ms. Yates started working at the ballpark after the 2007 death of her mother, Iris Doerner, in 2007 at the age of 85. A neighbor urged Ms. Yates to apply for a ballpark job. I thought, well Ill try it, Ms. Yates said. Ive been here ever since. She knows the procedures by now. The concession stands open two hours before game time. And each spring shell recognize fans shes seen in previous years. She doesnt know the names. You recognize the faces, Ms. Yates said. By now, many baseball fans no doubt recognize the face of Joyce Yates, the grandmother of 17 working diligently in Concession Stand B, above the gurgling fountain and near the breezeway. You likely wont see Ms. Yates leaning when shes behind the counter. You can probably count on that because she has that old school work ethic.

42 SPRING TRAINING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWoody Hanson is now 63 but for four magical springs in the 1960s the Fort Myers resident worked for the Pittsburgh Pirates at Terry Park. I was a kid who got a bucket of steam, a left-handed monkey wrench, Mr. Hanson said, recalling playful requests he received from players. But at least he wasnt told to get a key to the batters box. Not that one, Mr. Hanson said. The final four years, 1965-68, that the Pirates trained at Terry Park gave the boy a chance to mingle with big-league ballplayers, especially the greatest Pirate of all time Roberto Clemente. Id walk around in awe for a while, Mr. Hanson said on a cool December morning. The highlight for Mr. Hanson was spending time around Mr. Clemente, who was not only one of the greatest players ever but one of the finest human beings to ever play the game. He cared, Mr. Hanson said. He always wanted to know how I was doing. When he asked that he really meant it. I think he used me as a barometer or litmus test to understand comparatively white children in this time period. Mr. Hanson, a property appraiser, has had 50 years to reflect on his time around Mr. Clemente. He was quiet, considerate, Mr. Hanson recalled. Clubhouses are funny things for kids. There are guys that treat you like youre worthless, almost do it on purpose. But then there are guys like him, that without any effort just make you feel like youre a human being. Mr. Hanson also recalls the Hall of Famer as a hard worker, the first player in the clubhouse every morning, ready to work and improve his game. He was disciplined, Mr. Hanson said. He had empathy. He had a work ethic. He treated you as an equal. Early in his career Mr. Clemente stayed in a boarding house on Lime Street in what was then called Safety Hill but is now known as Dunbar because black players couldnt stay in the same hotels as white players. Meanwhile, Mr. Hanson said he grew up on Shadow Lane, a bucolic street that runs from McGregor Boulevard to the Calooshatchee. The contrast between the life of the white clubhouse boy and the segregated world of other parts of Fort Myers intrigued Mr. Clemente. I think it had to do with Lime Street and Shadow Lane, Mr. Hanson said. Mr. Clemente is still honored for his transcendent talent. Mr. Hanson, who had the full run of Terry Park from the fields to the dugouts to the clubhouse, picked up on the respect other players had for the outfielder. What I would call a quiet honor, Mr. Hanson said. You didnt mess with him on the bench. Major League Baseball bestows the Roberto Clemente Award every year to a player who best exemplifies Mr. Clemente. Mr. Hanson r ecalls hearing about the 1972 plane crash that killed Mr. Clemente, who was on a mercy mission to deliver aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. He died a humanitarian, not a baseball player, Mr. Hanson said.

P47 Fight Against Cancer! Join the Family in the T HE BENEFITS OF HAVING PEDIATRI C ON COL OGY SERVI C ES available nearby at Golisano Childrens Hospital are deeply appreciated and especially important to The Bell Family. Just one of many children treated at Golisano Childrens Hospital, Jack Bell, son of Ed and Rachel Bell, was diagnosed with stage four liver cancer at the tender age of two. I was eight months pregnant with my third child when we rst met Dr. Salman and Jack began treatment, so being able to stay close to home was very important for all of us, said Rachel Bell, Jacks mom. Unfortunately, because the tumor did not respond to treatment alone, Jack needed a liver transplant in Cincinnati. Thankfully, because of Golisano Childrens Hospital, the Bell Family was able to return home less than a month after the transplant, and Jack received seven months of chemotherapy at Golisano. If we didnt have this amazing childrens hospital in Fort Myers, we would have been forced to move permanently, said Rachel Bell. To this day, Jack goes to the hospital every two months for testing, so it continues to be very important to his survival.Y OUR C HI LD HAS C AN C ER. THESE ARE FOUR OF THE MOST DEVASTATING words a parent can endure. The journey of care often begins with shock and disbelief, but ultimately it can be one of hope, when the family is able to turn to Golisano Childrens Hospital for world-class pediatric oncology treatment close to home. Providing for children and families in need is paramount to our mission. The pediatric oncology team lends much-needed support and their top-notch medical care enables the family to stay together and keep their children close without having to travel elsewhere for services. When you support SWFL Childrens Charities, Inc.s 2018 Fund-A-Cause, your donation literally SAVES LIVES and makes unbearable circumstances much easier for young patients who could undergo months, or even years, of treatment for cancer at Golisano Childrens Hospital. We are counting on your support of our important funding initiative! Although doctors follow Jacks condition closely because of his medical history, he is now a healthy 12-year-old boy who is thriving in school and playing sports. According to Jacks physician, Dr. Emad Salman of Golisano Childrens Hospital, success stories like Jacks are possible because of the community support that comes through SWFL Childrens Charities, Inc. SWFL Childrens Charities, Inc. and the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest has been a huge part of the childrens hospital, said Dr. Salman. The abilities we have today would not be possible without their amazing contributions over the past several years. They are a big part of the foundation of this building and the children of Southwest Florida will be eternally indebted to them.Jacks Story of Survival GIVE TODAY AT www.swflwinefest.org/donate GIVE TODAY AT www.swflwinefest.org/donate 43 CHILDREN are diagnosed with CANCER EVERY DAY NATIONALLY 40,000+ CHILDREN undergo treatment for C ANCER EACH YEAR1 in 285 CHILDREN will be diagnosed with CANCER by the AGE OF 20 $500,000 is the average cost of treating a case of childhood C ANCER with parents paying an average of $35,000 OUTOFPOCKET Pediatric Cancer by the Numbers

P59 P53P43 How did you get into wine? MY HUSBAND, JESS JACKSON, W AS ALREADY IN THE WINE industry when we met, but I quickly dove right into the business. For nearly 30 years, we were a team. We were always working together to grow the company; and given my background in land use law, I focused heavily on land acquisitions. What is your most memorable moment as a vintner? THERE ARE SO MANY MEMORABLE AND PROUD MOMENTS. Our rst winery, Kendall-Jackson, is celebrating a milestone with our Vintners Reserve Chardonnay holding the title of Americas #1 Chardonnay for 25 straight years. Weve made strategic investments in the U.S. and globally, producing wines like Lokoya, Vrit, Capensis and Hickinbotham, which are being recognized as some of the best in the world. Weve also been a leader in sustainability, which my daughter, Katie, has been the driving force behind, leading the company as our Vice President of Sustainability and her husband, Shaun, is one of our Viticulture Directors. My other two children are also involved in the business. My daughter, Julia, is active in International Sales and Marketing. My son, Christopher, recently graduated from UC Berkeley School of Law, Jesss alma mater, and is now involved in the family business with his wife, Ariel. The growth weve had in the past ve years has been incredible; we have a great leadership team and the company is in an excellent place. What would you like the people of Southwest Florida to know about you? I HAVE A VERY YOUTHFUL SPIRIT, SOME MIGHT SAY I HAVENT totally grown up yet, but I am trying. How do you feel about supporting a cause that benets pediatric medicine? WITH FIVE GRANDCHILDREN ALL UNDER THE AGE OF THREE, THIS cause is very personal to me. Proper care for a child at every stage can lead to a lifetime of good health and wellness.
