A6 BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comAs the Great Recession took a sledgehammer to the American economy in 2009, Southwest Florida was no less battered than anywhere else. Karen Klukiewicz can attest to that; around then, she became one of the many who fell victim to downsizing. As she dealt with her own situation of being laid off, she knew countless others were finding themselves in the same position: out of work and closer to the end of their working years than the beginning. Unlike many of them, however, Ms. Klukiewicz found her footing quickly, becoming operations manager for Patrick Neale and Associates, the Naples law firm where she continues to work today. Still, though, she worried about those not as fortunate. A longtime volunteer at the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, she began to brainstorm with others at the chamber for ways to boost morale among the suf-Mission accomplishedSEE JOBS, A15 Zoo guestsAfrican penguins on loan for a few more weeks.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY Bigger than we thoughtGeorge Washington and the pledge of allegiance and James Madisons wife, Dolly he invented the First and Second Amendments, she invented ice cream, and you chased down the ice cream truck no matter how long it took. Your hand clasped in your mothers on the way to kindergarten, the fall apples you snatched from trees and the hills you rolled down on the way home. The Halloweens that came with kind neighbors, the rabbits and grouse you shot and the cook-stove wood fires your grandmother built to roast them or fry them, and how you realized: Love was bigger than you thought. How much can you remember of your childhood? Your mother singing you to sleep with old cowboy songs, your father teaching you to shoot, to throw footballs and catch them, to box and think and read about the universe, about science and religion and government, about equal rights, about how to smell deer or track them. You touching an older girls breast and your father taking you out in the woods to talk about life and sex and respect. You realizing, though mortified, love was bigger than you thought. Johnny Unitas throwing touchdown passes to Lenny Moore and Raymond Berry. Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris hitting homeruns. Rocky Marciano and Carmen Basilio and Muhammad Ali throwing punches. The sound of radio baseball on a summer night coming in scratchy from cities hundreds of miles away. Eleanor Roosevelt and Jim Bridger and the Blackfoot and Apaches and Birgit Nilsson singing Aida at the old Met when your Dad and Mom took you to New York City. And Hawkeye and Chingachgook and Cooperstown and the steps of the Washington Monument open all the way to the top. The dreadful sound of your sisters beginning violin floating out the window on a summer afternoon. How you realized: Love was bigger than you thought, and it might sound uglier, too. Your best friend smiling all the time when he got his nose broken, his leg broken, his arm broken, when he got a concussion, when he got cornered by a cop and asked if hed started a fire because the two of you snuck into a burning school building, belly crawling down the hall below the smoke to see what it was like. How angry your father was later. The time the nuns stole your bicycles because youd snuck into the girls reform school, climbed up and then slid down the five-story silo fire escape several times, leaving the bikes unlocked outside. How your father tried not to laugh later. How you realized, love was bigger than you thought. Those troubling, tidy-white slave quarters behind the big houses at Mount Vernon and Monticello, when your parents took you there. The Mexican field workers who threw you cantaloupes over a farm fence on an August afternoon with the temperature north of 95, and your section crew on the Union Pacific railroad was running out of water. How you realized, love was bigger than you thought. The sudden mountain silence at the Jackson Place at noon, when cowboys secured their horses and rested themselves outside the corrals to eat the big dinner an aunt delivered over miles of rough road meat, potatoes, vegetables, rolls, pies, tea. And you realized, love was bigger than you thought. The rich musk of old books at the Eugene Field library where the author of Wynken, Blynken & Nod once lived, the man who said, No book can be appreciated until it has been slept in and dreamed over. The Ute arrowheads you found after every hard rain on Flint Hill above your grandfathers homestead. And Robert F. Kennedy, who appeared alone on the sidewalk by your parents stalled car, hands shoved in his pockets, suit jacket open, staring down and brooding as he walked up Fifth Avenue, in New York. Or maybe it was Broadway. The happy sight of your family friends, Anne Aire, her husband Dennis Small, and their children, Skip and Mark. She was a French immigrant and white, he was an American school principle and black, and the kids were white and black, which meant nothing to you then several years before the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The flavor of your first girlfriend when she kissed you on a moon-soaked bridge, salty and sweet and strange, only half pleasant but wholly compelling the first time youd ever tasted another human being, the first time you knew what love might actually feel like. And you realized again, love is bigger than you thought. Do your memories sew themselves into the fabric of a rich life, becoming friends and counselors even if they arent all benign? And none can be. Remembering lately, Ive realized: Its the names, not the memories that sadden me now in the spring of 2018 the names speaking in their own mute horror. Name after name after name after name scrawled on Florida bricks and stones after Parkland, as I mentioned last week, and scrawled in front of the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., again, by high school students, during the March for Our Lives. They call it, Collateral Damage. Exactly 679 names, victims whose remembering has been stolen. Each memory would have been an American catalogue of childhood, both unique and common like mine or yours, and unaccountably rich. But all are now gone, only chalk on a sidewalk, once-upon-atime kids killed by gunmen in American schools between April 20, 1999 and February 14, this year. And now were going to let that happen again. Unless. Unless we can enter a voting booth, we can pause momentarily as a people, and we can remember: Love is bigger than we thought. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

How weird is that? But bear with me. Hawking credibly speculated about a parallel universe on the other side of a black hole. What if, in that alternative existence, Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 presidential election? How, in that black hole that is U.S. politics, would she be doing as president? In a word, badly. She wouldnt be the disgrace that Donald Trump is theres no way anyone can match his bigotry, hateful appeals to our worst instincts or his simple-minded impetuousness. In fact, Hillary and impetuous would make up a classic oxymoron. While President Trump is moronically careless, Hillary is methodically calculating, or at least appears that way, which is even worse. As a result, she squanders her advantages, like her formidable brainpower, because shes missing the lobe that processes empathy impulses the real ones, not the artificial contrivances concocted by her sycophantic consultants. By now, she would have frittered away much of her hugely historic significance as the nations first woman chief executive. It would have dissipated, overridden by the personal flaws that have come to define Hillary Clinton. Her careful dissembling would be easy prey for Republicans, always ready to pounce. Her perceived sense of superiority and that of the people who flit around her soon would antagonize just about all us unworthies. Hillary Clinton provides an object lesson for those trying to grasp what a candidate should not be. Her recent appearance in India is a case in point. She offered the analysis that she had beaten Trump in places populated by those who are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward as opposed to those who are backward, riffraff in her mind, who were driven away by the elitist sense of entitlement that she exudes. Her arrogant, meritocratic view of the deplorables doesnt compare with Trumps vile demagogic manipulation of their fears and prejudices, but the condescension openly displayed by Hillary and so many of her supporters for all who dont share their phony values is almost as divisive. Add to that Hillarys long coziness with the richest of the rich, and it would stoke the same resentments that Trump has been able to exploit to his advantage. He is a master at convincing the little people that hes on their side at the same time that he symbolizes the worst excesses of conspicuous consumption and an entirely selfish life. Both are phonies, but also polar opposites. One huge difference: Trump is entertaining, grossly so. And his slapstick collection of supporting actors is a laugh a minute. Clinton as president would bore us to death. Where The Donald mindlessly stomps through issues, Hillary takes carefully thought-out baby steps. Its preferable for policymaking but stifles any passion. Wed be desperate for excitement, even some misstep from that other President Clinton, whose time as POTUS was certainly, uh, interesting. For now, were stuck in our Trump black hole. Still, as Stephen Hawking argued, Things can get out of a black hole, both to the outside, and possibly, to another universe. The problem is, that other universe is not all that appealing either. Or maybe this is the alternative universe. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly bob FRANKENSpecial to Florida Weekly Dont Bork Gina HaspelPresident Donald Trumps pick for CIA director is about to experience a good Borking. No one doubts her professionalism, and shes been endorsed by Obama intelligence officials. Yet Gina Haspels long career at the agency, including extensive work undercover in the field, is getting blotted out by her reported involvement in the CIAs black-site interrogation program, which has become a warrant to say anything about her. Her critics assert she should be in jail, and The New York Times editorial page wrote about her nomination under the headline Having a Torturer Lead the C.I.A. Not to be outdone in demagogic attacks on anyone associated with our national security apparatus, Sen. Rand Paul calls Haspel the head cheerleader for waterboarding, and claims she mocked a detainee for his drooling. The only problem is that this anecdote comes from a book by a contractor who worked with the CIA, James Mitchell, and it describes a man, not a woman, making the comment. Factual accuracy aside, the attacks on Haspel are ahistorical in that they ignore the context of the CIA program, and unfair insofar as they portray her as a remorselessly cruel prime mover behind it. The interrogation program began when al-Qaida operative Abu Zubaydah was captured in March 2002. At the time, we believed another 9/11-style attack was imminent, and preventing it had an urgency fueled by raw memories of an event that was literally yesterdays news. The interrogation program wasnt a rogue operation. The CIA repeatedly briefed select congressional leaders, especially the top Republicans and Democrats on the intelligence committees. It was approved at the highest level of the U.S. government, and the CIA sought, and got, explicit legal approval from the Department of Justice. Haspel is connected in the press to the interrogations of Abu Zubaydah, although the CIA hasnt confirmed her participation and insists much of the reporting about her work in this period is erroneous. But lets consider Zubaydahs case. He was not a detainee who had nothing to tell us, as he is often portrayed by critics of the CIA. Shortly after his capture, he identified Khalid Sheikh Mohammed as the mastermind of 9/11. The enhanced interrogations were brutal. Zubaydah was struck, placed in stress positions, confined in small boxes and repeatedly waterboarded. During one session, he became unresponsive. By any standard, this was extreme and right up to the legal line. The CIA didnt learn of any planned attack in the U.S.; it did become confident that Zubaydah wasnt holding back anything. From his capture to his transfer to the Department of Defense on Sept. 5, 2006, information from him produced 766 intelligence reports. In the cold light of day, we would have handled all of this differently. But this was a national failing, and at a time when we understandably believed we were in a race to prevent another atrocity on our shores. To punish Gina Haspel more than 15 years later for doing what her country asked her to do, and in response to what she was told were lawful orders, would be a travesty and a disgrace. But so were the confirmation hearings of Robert Bork. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Help Stamp Out Hunger before you leave town for the summer SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYSix days a week, 52 weeks a year, rain or shine, local letter carriers deliver everything from bills and birthday cards to catalogs and coupons. But on the second Saturday of May, postal workers in Collier Country will deliver something more as they go along their routes: hope in the form of food for those in need. Saturday, May 12, marks the National Association of Letter Carriers 26th annual Stamp Out Hunger, the nations largest single-day food drive, when postal customers are asked to leave donations of non-perishable pantry items for their carriers to pick up. In Collier County, these food donations are delivered to Collier Harvest Foundation, which has partnered with the NALC since the food drive began. The drive occurs just as Southwest Floridas seasonal residents leave; its success is critical to the efforts of feeding those less fortunate in our area throughout the summer, especially students from low-income families that rely on breakfast and lunch provided by Collier County Public Schools during the academic year. (CCPS reports serving on average 21,369 free or reduced meals a day). In addition, many families will see reduced or eliminated work hours in industries that provide seasonal services, further straining already stretched budgets. Stamp Out Hunger donations are sorted, boxed and stored at the Collier Harvest warehouse for distribution to dozens of local agencies, such as Providence House, Youth Haven, Collier Senior Resources, NAMI and other nonprofit organizations and churches. The goal is to collect enough food to see these agencies through the summer, as well as have enough food to aid in the event of a hurricane or other disaster. Letter carriers last year collected 263,000 pounds of food donated by their customers. I cant tell you how much this helps us. We feed many, many people every day, and this helps us tremendously, chef Amy Peters at the David Lawrence Center says. Stamp Out Hunger is a communitywide event in which resident can participate on many levels: Seasonal residents who are leaving before the May 12 collection day are encouraged to take their unopened, non-perishable items to the closest postal branch or give them to their mail carrier. Businesses, schools and other organizations can collect food ahead of the drive to increase the donation total. On the day of the food drive, volunteers are needed to help unload, sort and box food at the Collier Harvest warehouse. The busiest time of day is from 3-7 p.m. as the carriers finish their routes; volunteers are asked to commit to two-hour shifts. Its an amazing day filled with community spirit as individuals, youth groups, businesses and civic organizations come together to help feed those less fortunate who live right here in Collier County, says Connie Preu, Collier Harvest executive director. We typically have up to 200 volunteers, working shifts, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. We have pizza, refreshments and even live music to keep everyone motivated while they work. Its a fun and rewarding way to give back to the community. To sign up to volunteer for Stamp Out Hunger or for information about other volunteer opportunities at Collier Harvest, call 455-3663 or visit www.collierharvest.org. Many of the same volunteer drivers sign up year after year to follow letter carriers along their routes picking up food donations. About 200 volunteers work in shifts sorting and boxing food at the Collier Harvest warehouse.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYPeople respond to the death of pets in as many ways as their own experiences, lifestyles and spiritual beliefs might suggest. Backyard burials or a cremation handled through vet erinarians are familiar rituals. More and more pet owners are choosing veterinary hospice care, grief counseling, funerals, art made of the cremains, and even cryogenic preservation. In West Palm Beach, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue Leagues death-related services for pets include euthanasia, private or communal cremation and interment at its Berman Memorial Pet Garden ($50 to $250). For a $25,000 minimum bequest, the agency offers a program called Peace of Mind that provides ongoing care for up to three pets should their owner die, including adoptions and medical. We make sure that animal never falls through the cracks, said Kim Hanson, major and planned giving officer. For Ms. Baron and others who mourned the death of Maggie, a 12-pound ball of cotton with a shrill bark and a loyal heart, the ritual included burying the pet in a small pink casket, music and prayers reflecting the familys Catholic beliefs. A gravestone was laser inscribed with Maggies image and a long epitaph reads in part: From time to time people tell me, Lighten up, its just a dog or Thats a lot of money for just a dog. For me and folks like me, its not Just a dog. Its an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. Some pet owners may in fact one day come to embody those dreams of the future, their pets risen like Lazarus from a freezing bath. Through the Cryonics Institute, based outside Detroit, Mich., pet owners have had their dogs, cats, birds and lizards cryonically preserved in thermos-like tanks filled with liquid nitrogen with the possibility though no guarantee that science could someday revive them, their bodies restored to some measure of health. The cost to preserve a dog of 15 pounds or less is $5,800, not including shipping or vet expenses and yearly membership fees to the institute. About 165 people and 130 animals are preserved at the warehouse facility outside Detroit. The institute was started by the famous physicist and cryonics pioneer Robert Ettinger. It is one of a handful in the world undertaking this scientific endeavor for people and their four-legged friends. I would say the vast majority of them want to be frozen with their pet and be brought back with their pet, said the nonprofits president, Dennis Kowalski. He guesses that could happen in 50 to 200 years, but adds who knows? Last year, Boca Raton resident Rhonda Piper started Life Celebration Keepsakes, producing custom-made blown glass pieces that incorporate a small amount of human or animal cremains. With the help of an experienced glass blower at the Benzaiten Center for Creative Arts, she has produced about 50 pieces so far and is working on perfecting designs such as a seashell, butterfly or a simple sphere. Its a keepsake that many feel more comfortable displaying at home than an urn, she has found. You can choose to tell people what they are, or you dont have to its a personal decision, she said. In Fort Myers, the Rev. Suzy Post performs blessings for animals that will be euthanized and memorial services for deceased pets at Iona-Hope Episcopal Church. Part of the churchs All Gods Creatures Animal Ministry, started by a parishioner a few years ago, the ministry is a service for everyone in the community, not just church members, the Rev. Post said. I do absolutely believe that all animals go to heaven because they were all created by God, she said. I think there is a place in heaven for every living, breathing creature that walks or crawls on this earth. Among its many animal ministry outreach activities, the church welcomes all pets for a blessing each year on the Sunday in October after the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Throughout her career, the Rev. Post has blessed cats, dogs, snakes, lizards, turtles, birds, horses and even a blind raccoon. The church is planning to build a memorial garden with a columbarium to inter animals ashes and a field where they may be scattered instead. Veterinary hospice, or end-of-life care for pets, is a growing field, said Dr. Dani McVety. She teaches the subject at her alma mater, University of Floridas College of Veterinary Medicine in Gainesville. PETSFrom page 1 Maggie was 14 when she passed away last June. Riley the cat has been cryonically preserved at the Cyronics Institute near Detroit. Pet owners may purchase caskets for their pets at Pet Haven Cemetery. The Rev. Suzy Post; Evelyn Reynolds, a parish member; and the Rev. Ray Buchanan lead a memorial service at Iona-Hope Episcopal Church.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 NEWS A11In 2009, Dr. McVety also co-founded Lap of L ove, a pr actice dedicated entirely to animal hospice. Now it has grown into a network of about 120 hospice vets in Florida and the U.S. Its a really important part of our profession, and up until a few years ago we werent taught that much about it, she said. Instead of focusing on keeping pets alive, hospice aims to give them the most peaceful, comfortable end to life and death possible. Its for the pets as well as the people that love them, Dr. McVety said. Lap of Loves most popular service is in-home euthanasia, which is typically done with a shot containing a high dose of barbiturates and heavy anesthesia. A home visit from one of its vets costs $250. A smaller portion of pet owners request in-home care and consultations for an aging or sick pet to help extend its life, whether the condition is congestive heart failure, arthritis or just old age. Dr. McVety has given that final injection most often for dogs and cats though the third most common pet among Lap of Loves clientele is potbellied pigs. She has given the injection on the beach, before a toast on a dock at sunset, and to one Labrador in a swimming pool. She has seen ceremonies and memorial gatherings for pets from people of Mason, Wiccan, Buddhist, Jewish and Christian beliefs. Everybody has their own way of getting through these things, and nobody should judge anybody else for anything they choose to do, she said. Death is going to happen whether we step in or not, and we have this immense honor and privilege to help our pets through a process that we can make just a little bit easier on them. One of her most moving experiences was euthanizing a dog that belonged to a 16-year-old girl whose father had died the year before of Lou Gehrigs disease. It wasnt just the loss of the dog it was the loss of her dad all over again, she said. There are multiple times where I tear up in appointments. That was one of the few times I really had to make sure I could see the needle and the vein. For many children, the loss of a pet may be their first close encounter with death. Alva resident Aubrey Vealey, 31, grew up Catholic, around animals and hunting in Loxahatchee. Death with animals became just kind of a normal part of the universal experience, it was just a normal part of life, she said. Be it dogs, cats, chickens, cows, raccoons, ducks and squirrels, Ive always had animals children, if they count, she said. Her first pet as a girl was a rabbit, Sheila, that ended up dying after contracting worms, My first heartbreak. Her mom explained that it had gone to bunny heaven, while her dad viewed it more as just another rabbit. My mom the theologian and my dad the good old country boy, she said. A few years ago, Ms. Vealey lost Tippy, a Florida or Black Mouth Cur that she got as a teenager, to diabetes and old age. Ms. Vealeys father didnt want Tippy, who was clearly suffering, to die in a veterinarians office. He put her down himself, feeding her steak and taking her life with a gun shot. I know that sounds brutal to a lot of people, but honestly its instant, humane, it was the way my dad wanted to see her soul depart, Ms. Vealey said. Tippy was buried on the western part of her property. She loved to run, Ms. Vealey said. So we buried her overlooking the cow pasture. It was nothing formal. Every day, when we drive back to that part of our property, we just pay our respects to her. Pat Baron and Charlie Baron regularly drive up from their home in South Lee County to visit Maggies grave at Pet Haven in Punta Gorda. We go up there every week, my husband and I, Ms. Baron said. They say a prayer and bring fresh flowers including, usually, one pink rose among them. Ms. Baron first got Magnolia Maggie in Albany, N.Y., for her daughter, but wound up being her daily caretaker. After her daughter left for college, she and Maggie developed an especially close bond. Maggie was always there to greet them when they arrived home and slept at the foot of their bed each night. After Ms. Baron, who runs a medical billing and consulting business, and her husband started spending part of the year at their home in Lee County, MagMagnolia Maggie Barons headstone at Pet Haven cemetery includes a vase for fresh flowers. Urns of varying sizes are available at Pet Haven Cemetery. A marker pays tribute to a dog at Pet Haven Cemetery. SEE PETS, A12

She loved Florida because Ms. Baron works at home rather than going to an office. Not only Florida, she loved the drive back and forth from New York, said Ms. Baron, often pausing during a phone conversation with Florida Weekly, when the still-raw emotion of her loss became overwhelming. She never complained. For Maggie, she didnt care, because she was with us. Two years before Maggie died, she was diagnosed with melanoma. The Barons sought out a progressive immunotherapy treatment at Morphogenesis in Tampa, which specializes in cell and gene therapy. I cant tell you how much it was because we didnt care, Ms. Baron said. It was expensive, but it was well worth the two years. Her grief over Maggies death was different from that of her parents deaths, the pain more acute, she said. My parents, you graduate from college, you move away I love my parents desperately but youre not there with them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so its a different loss Does she believe Maggie is in heaven? I believe Ill see her again, she said. Ms. Baron isnt sure if she wants to take on another dog. Once in a while I do and then I say, my golly, I dont know if I can go through this again, the heartache, and then I think about all the pets who dont have anybody, either, she said. And maybe it would be a situation where it would be good for me and be good for another dog. The gravestones at Pet Haven Cemetery mark the passing of animals with names like Storm, Gigi, Muffin, Sugar Bear, Bobby, Laser and Brando. Our good boy, one simple epitaph reads about a dog, while another says, Our favorite scrunchie stealer. One about a bird named Sam says, Loved by all. Another stone contains a quote from Gandhi: The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Pet Havens cemetery and crematory is at Royal Palm Memorial Gardens, which also handles human burials; in one area, people can be interred along with their pets. Office manager Ashley Rich explains the options to clients, including types of Animals of all sizes provide a lifetime of influence BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comIt doesnt matter which path Cari Jones takes in life its always led back to the animals. The Wisconsin native, part-time Southwest Florida resident and business owner began her educational and professional life in advertising, design and public relations. Though she admittedly wasnt confident in her scientific ability, she became an elephant trainer. I took an extremely backwards road to work with animals. She began by working with the family horses. She never forgot the connection to the creatures, prompting Ms. Jones to leave her advertising agency back in 2010. It just wasnt what I thought it would beI didnt like the structure. There was too much being lost between the client and artist, she said. So in 2010 Ms. Jones asked a local veterinarian in Wisconsin for some career advice: without schooling, how does one get into animal training? She moved home, quit her advertising job and took an unpaid internship with a nearby zoo as a 25-year-old. Her parents werent thrilled, but she was doing what she loved: working with animals. Within three months, Ms. Jones moved down to Florida to become a dolphin trainer. A short time after that, Ms. Jones heard that Zoo Miami was searching for elephant keepers. She applied with little hope of receiving an offer. I knew it was dangerous because theres close contact but they liked my experience with horses. They knew I was used to the heavy lifting, long hours that it takes to care for a larger animal, she said. They hired Ms. Jones for a temporary position; within two months she was brought on full time. I was absolutely in love with their intelligence, emotions and capabilities of understanding you. They all have very different personalities and gravitate toward certain people. She equated the experience to gratifying a pack of human toddlers who happened to weigh 10,000 pounds. Then Cari Jones met Maude. Some mightve considered the elephant a diva of sorts. Maude was very slow. She went at her own pace never in a hurry to do anything. The keepers were usually pressed for time, with required health checks, baths and other duties before the elephants could be presented to the public. Maudes carefree attitude toward such necessities caused her to get neglected from time to time; Ms. Jones thought shed try her hand at working with Maude. Maude was fine with getting the normal checks and training. But what she really enjoyed was getting her nails done. Foot care is a critical need for elephants raised in captivity, as they are sometimes subjected to less than optimal walking surfaces. One could argue that Maude was just doing her due diligence. She started to seek me out on my days at the zoo. She would look out, find me, point at me with her trunk and sniff me. It was like a friendship. With lifespans of sometimes 60 years, many elephant keepers train their animals for a very long time. Ms. Jones was at Zoo Miami for around three years when Maude got very sick after a number of warning signs. Maude ended up passing away. When Maude went down it was the hardest thing Ive ever been a part of. For more than three years at Zoo Miami, despite the sweat, long hours and weekends, Ms. Jones felt like she didnt work. But it was time to move on and try something new. I know myself. I like having communication directly with my clients so nothing gets lost in translation. Thats how you understand what people want and provide it for them at a reasonable cost. After moving to Naples, she soon launched her own company, naming it in honor of her old friend, Maude: Elephant Creative Co. Being loyal, honest, even realizing how your tone makes people react differently. Those are all things animals taught me the value of. I had to name my company after these creatures that taught me so much. Before she became an elephant trainer, around nine years ago, Ms. Jones was working part-time in a number of veterinarian offices to fulfill her joy working with animals. One day a bait dog from a fighting ring in Madison was brought in, a pit bull named Lady. The owner said she was vicious and should be put down. The vet decided to give Lady a chance, asking Ms. Jones to help out. Lady wasnt aggressive, but didnt trust anybody either, she recalled. Ms. Jones brought Lady home with her. She never left. She was the best dog in the world. About a year and a half ago, Ms. Jones was getting ready to marry her nowhusband when Lady started having some nasal issues. She was sneezing constantly. Lady was taken to the vet for testing, and after a number of visits they discovered a large tumor in her nasal canal. To remove it with good success margins, they wouldve had to break into her jaw not be able to reconstruct it, Ms. Jones said. The Joneses brought Lady home to consider their options. Ms. Jones was living in Naples when Lady started having the nasal issues. The day after learning of the tumor diagnosis, Lady sneezed again and her tumor hemorrhaged. The bleeding luckily stopped enough for Ms. Jones to take her back to the vet again. Ms. Jones had a lifetime of experience to consider when pondering her dogs future. Seeing people put animals through aggressive, debilitating procedures was something she couldnt stomach. Dogs live through their nose. There was never a thought in our minds to put Lady through that surgery, to chance it. They made the terrible decision to put Lady down, but they wouldnt let her go without a beautiful ending. Ms. Jones and her husband brought Lady to the beach. They took her for a burger and milkshake at the All-American Shake Shop in Naples. And they had all her furry friends from the neighborhood over to play one last time. It was almost peaceful to know that this dog was never going to know a moment of suffering. A photographer from Neubek Photographers documented Ladys last day. The local veterinarian at Town & Country Animal Hospital in Naples came to Ms. Joness home to put Lady to sleep at home, in her bed, where she was most comfortable. They went above and beyond. Less than 24 hours later they brought Ladys ashes and her collar back to us, Ms. Jones said. Cleo is the new head of house for the Joneses after being adopted from the Naples Humane Society; shes the spitting image of a young Lady. After spending several thousand dollars during the last year of Ladys life, they decided to protect their new furry friend with pet insurance so that no decision is made concerning finances. If something comes up, were reimbursed for 90 percent of our expenses, Ms. Jones said. We could never do Ladys surgery; taking away a dogs sense of smell, what kind of life is that? But with Cleo, if a fluke comes up concerning her health, we dont have to even consider money as a factor. It costs us about $40 per month with a $200 annual deductible.

They also have a pickup service for deceased animals. Cremations generally cost $95 or more depending on a pets weight; burial services start at $590. If there is an open casket, the pet is stored in a freezer until the service and often arranged on a favorite blanket, its hair brushed. Ms. Rich said that although larger animals, such as horses, arent buried at the cemetery at this time, it could accommodate them as well. Ms. Rich often cries with families as they prepare their own ritual to say goodbye. Years ago, in Rhode Island, she said goodbye to her pug, Rocco, her first pet on her own as an adult. He died in her arms at her veterinary clinic, where he had been on oxygen. I was devastated, said Ms. Rich, who is 37. I always say he was like my first baby. Its been probably nine years. I can remember the day it happened fresh in my mind like it happened yesterday. His body was cremated, the remains divided between her and her mother, who planted them under a hydrangea. And he blooms every year, Ms. Rich said. As for his spirt, that is around, too. She and many pet owners take a measure of peace in an inspirational poem called Rainbow Bridge about a place Just this side of Heaven where beloved animals can live a good life until they are finally reunited with their owners. Many pet owners share the loss of their animals on social media, such as Facebook, where memes depicting the Rainbow Bridge and what heaven may look like filled with cats and dogs, are prominently posted. I believe pets go to heaven, and just like people they will always be with you, Ms. Rich said. One section of stones in Pet Haven memorializes K-9s with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. When a K-9 dies after retirement or off duty, afterdeath care is left to its handler. If that dog dies in the line of duty, however, it is given the same burial as a human officer, said CCSOs K-9 Sgt. Jason Doherty, including an honor guard to stand watch over the remains, a full service and funeral procession. The last time that happened was in 1988. A gravestone at Pet Haven marking that year that Major died in the line of duty reads, So you may live, my life is yours. The officers have a unique relationship with each dog, as a constant companion and highly trained partner. Sgt. Dohertys K-9, Rino, is a 4-year-old Belgian Malinois. If Rino dies in retirement, Sgt. Doherty plans to keep his cremains at home. If he were to die in the line of duty, he would have Rinos cremains interred at the cemetery so that others could pay respects there as they choose. I think it would be selfish for me to keep the remains at my house, he said. Not unlike the experience of a human death, people grieve their pets in individual ways and on their own timelines, said Deborah Paradise, a social worker and bereavement counselor at Avow in Naples. She leads a free support group for people who have lost a pet that meets on the first Monday of each month. Its not uncommon for members to talk about feelings of regret, anger and sadness, she said, or feelings of even relief and then feeling guilty for feeling relief that the pet is no longer with them. (T)hough its very similar to losing a (human) loved one, Ms. Paradise said, one of the hardest parts about losing a pet is that others may not think the loss is that important because it is just a pet even though our pets become like family. There are not official records indicating how much people spend on afterdeath services such as cremations and burials since pet deaths are not officially tracked. But private pet cremation is said to be a growing trend among funeral home directors, said Barbara Kemmis, executive director of the Cremation Association of North America. The National Funeral Directors Association said surveys indicate awareness of pet memorial services is growing among Americans, but that only 6 percent of Americans over age 40 would be very likely to have a memorial service for a pet. Our country and culture are hardly the first to memorialize animals. Gripped by their centuries-long interest in mummification, ancient Egyptians performed death rites for all manner of animals, wrote Peter Jamison in 2013 in a Tampa Bay Times article about the booming pet death care industry. Some of them, including cats, crocodiles and ibises, received individual funerals from priests who considered them sacred. There are many sociological reasons that effect how people react to the death of a pet, from urbanization to whether or not they live alone. To Ms. Vealey in Alva, what happens to a pet after it dies spiritually and how people react, All basically boils down to love. I dont know the answer, to what happens to the soul or animating personality of a pet after it dies, she said. I can only assume, and I assume that they too are part of the divine and that they live on. They say love lives forever it doesnt say love with only humans lives forever, and when we love a pet, thats love. Kit Chamberlain bought them on a lark one day, three 25-cent goldfish. A day later, only one was still alive. That goldfish, which she named Tulip, lived on for nine years, finally growing into a 40-gallon aquarium. I became unexpectedly attached to him, said Ms. Chamberlain, 52. He was beautiful. He was orange and white and had big fins. Tulip was memorialized with a short service and an inscribed brick Mighty and Beautiful Goldfish, it reads at the nonprofit Avow Hospices pet memorial garden in Naples, an option the hospice offers to pets as well as people with a $500 donation. Tulip is the gardens only fish, said Ms. Chamberlain, Avows vice president of administration and communication. Most of the bricks are laid in memory of dogs and cats. Last July, Pamela Templeton lost her dog Jedai Knight, a Cannan that she got in the mid-1990s. She then reflected on all the ways he had been by her side including through the deaths of both her parents as well as a close friend, and a brutal economic crisis that hurt the business she ran at the time, an auto dealership. Theres just nothing like it, having that soul dog, that animal that just knows how to come over and sit down next to you, you know, and looks you in the eye and you know he knows he was that kind of dog, she said. He was gentle and sweet, and he was such a good boy. She got Jedai, a big sable-colored animal with pricked ears and a curly tail, in part because of the sense of security he would bring after she moved into a partially finished community in Fort Myers that remained quite dark at night. Many years later, after one bad night when she knew she had to let him go, her neighbor, a vet, euthanized Jedai, and he died at home. Later that evening, she and her husband went out for a walk. Earlier that day a friend had told Ms. Templeton, (Jedai) knows how much you love him, and he might send you a sign. And as they were driving home, she saw it. I looked up in the sky and I see this cloud and I saw the nose first and the ears second and then I saw the tail curled up, she said. I told Bruce, I said pull over, thats Jedai. So I got a Hallmark card from Jedai in the sky, at twilight the day that he died. It blew my mind. A glass memorializing a pet, containing the animal s cremains.

The funds will support a wide variety of efforts to improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of children in Collier County. Trustees of the Naples Children & Education Foundation, the founding organization of the festival, celebrated the grant recipients recently at at Bay Colony Golf Club. The Naples Children & Education Foundation continues to be a critical resource for programs and organizations striving to support and aid the underprivileged and at-risk children of Collier County, said Valerie Boyd, chair of the 2018 NCEF grant committee. We want to thank everyone who participated in and attended the 2018 festival. Every dollar raised has been given to one of these 47 impactful organizations that are helping change the lives of thousands of children in our community. In addition to 33 traditional grantees that received a total of $5,850,521, 14 organizations that help fill critical needs in the community by taking part in the NCEFs six multi-partner, multi-year strategic initiatives received a total of $9,331,568. The 2018 Fund a Need, supporting childrens hunger and oral health, received $2.4 million and was the largest amount raised in NWWF history. The focus for this years Fund a Need was identified through the foundations most recent Study of Child Well Being. As we look back at this past year and the hardships weve overcome, its more important than ever to focus our energy on building a better and stronger future, foundation CEO Maria Jimenez-Lara said. Since inception of the foundations hunger initiative, more than 4.6 million meals have been distributed, with nearly 23,000 children having their basic need of food met through 357 Collier County food distributions last year alone. Since opening its doors in 2008, the NCEF Pediatric Dental Center, made possible through the foundations oral health initiative, has treated more than 125,000 patients and, through its mobile sealant program, also provided 9,000 third-grade students with dental screenings, referrals and sealants. The grant committee, which is comprised of 11 NCEF trustees, works yearround to determine how to invest the funds raised at NWWF. One of the world's most prestigious charity wine auctions, the festival is a weekend of world-class food and wine for guests who enjoy intimate dinners in private homes and bid on once-in-a-lifetime travel and wine experiences during a live auction. Since its inaugural event in 2001, NWWF has raised more than $176 million, making a profound difference in the lives of thousands of children.

The result: a job search support group that would meet weekly at chamber headquarters, facilitated by Ms. Klukiewicz. We were helping white-collar professionals a lot of people came out of the construction and banking industries, the two hardest hit (by the recession), Ms. Klukiewicz said. These people had high level jobs and hadnt looked for work in more than 20 years. Their identities were ripped out from under them. The Monday morning support group started in April 2009, the meeting day and time chosen because it would provide structure and accountability similar to a normal workday. Some weeks upwards of 30 people showed up. Lisa Cook, the newest hire at the local American Red Cross affiliate, attested to the job search support groups ability to get her ready and able to find an opportunity. I attended nearly every weekly meeting until I landed a job, she said. Every week, (Karen) held us accountable. Finding a job was our job. Ms. Cook credits the group with getting her through the tough times, keeping her motivated and optimistic that her search would bear fruit. Shes even more adamant about the impact Ms. Klukiewicz had on her ability to stay positive. She provided job search tips and suggested networking events to attend, she said. Karen is a rock star. Ms. Klukiewicz estimates she saw about 1,500 people and helped 500 of them land jobs before attendance began to tail off a few months ago. The decision to discontinue the group was made in February this year. This time around for Ms. Klukiewicz, being out of a job albeit a volunteer one is somewhat bittersweet. I have been privileged to meet lots of wonderful people and make some great friends, she said. We all supported each other. We even have a couple who met at the group and are now engaged. And so the job search support group enters a state of hiatus, with Ms. Klukiewicz waiting in the wings should the need arise. I hope we will never need to resume, she said. But we will certainly be both optimistic and watchful. COOKJOBSFrom page 1

News that sounds like a jokeWait times at emergency rooms are notoriously long, and Danny Koniecznys experience was no different on March 6 at The Villages Hospital in The Villages, Fla. The Lady Lake resident, 61, was at home earlier in the day when a neighbor called 911 to report Konieczny was drunk and suicidal. According to WOFL-TV, first responders took him to the hospital, where he waited for two hours to see a doctor before getting exasperated and stealing an ambulance to drive home. Konieczny parked the ambulance in the driveway of the neighbor he thought had called the police about him. When Lake County Sheriffs investigators tracked him down, they found Konieczny curled up in the trunk of his own car in his garage. Konieczny was put on no-bond status because he is still on probation from a 2017 drunk driving charge.An escalating situationThings went from bad to worse for 30-year-old Isaac Bonsu on March 6 when he was charged in Alexandria, Va., with felony hit-and-run involving an unlikely victim. Fairfax County Police pulled Bonsu over for an equipment violation, but he apparently forgot to put it in park before exiting the vehicle. Bonsu can be seen on police dashcam video running in front of the car and then being struck by it. Unhurt, Bonsu jumped up and kept running, but police were able to catch him. The Associated Press reported that along with the hit-and-run, Bonsu was charged with driving while intoxicated (his third) and possessing marijuana.AwesomeEnvironmentalists decry all the debris washing up on beaches around the world, but a discovery in January near Perth, Australia, has historians thrilled. The Washington Post reported that Tonya Illman and a friend were walking along the beach when she spotted a lovely old bottle. Inside was a damp note, tied with string. We took it home and dried it out ... and it was a printed form, in German, with very faint German handwriting on it, she said. Experts at the Western Australia Museum have determined the note was 132 years old 24 years older than the previous record for a message in a bottle. The note was dated June 12, 1886, from a ship named Paula. Further study revealed that a German Naval Observatory program was analyzing global ocean currents in the area between 1864 and 1933, and an entry in the Paulas captains journal made note of the bottle being tossed overboard. Thousands of other bottles were released into the sea as part of the program, and only 662 have been returned. The last one discovered was in January 1934.The stuff of nightmaresKayaker Sue Spector, 77, was out for a leisurely paddle on the Braden River in Florida with her husband and friends on March 4 when someone remarked, Oh look, theres an otter. No sooner had the words been spoken than the mammal with a playful reputation jumped onto Spector in her kayak and began clawing and scratching her arms, nose and ear. He wouldnt let go and I kept screaming. I kept beating him with a paddle, Spector told FOX13 News. She later required stitches, antibiotics and rabies treatment. It was the second otter attack in two days, and Florida Fish and Wildlife has now posted signs about the aggressive otter near the area.OopsThe Carelse family of Lakewood, Colo., picked up some groceries at the Walmart in Littleton on March 5, including a box of Quaker 100 Percent Natural Granola with oats, honey and raisins. When they sat down for breakfast the next morning, they told KMGH-TV, Anthea Carelse noticed that the best by date on the box was Feb. 22, 1997 more than 21 years ago. Her husband, Josiah, ate his full bowl and didnt suffer any unpleasant consequences, but Anthea stopped after two bites. Josiah planned to return the box to Walmart.Least-competent criminalOn March 12 in Northumberland, England, a car thief making a getaway in a Mini Cooper S discovered the small car was not small enough to navigate a narrow stone staircase in Carlisle Park. Northumbria police were called to the park around 11:30 p.m. where they found the car and its unnamed 31-year-old driver both wedged tightly between the staircase walls.

A24 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELChevrolets new Equinox appeals to your youthful halfReasonably priced crossovers are often about compromise. If it werent for obligations to family, business or anything else that requires space, wed probably all be driving roadsters and fun 4x4s. So in a class thats built on settling, the new Chevrolet Equinox is quietly bringing back a little youthful rebellion. The uprising is a gentle one. While the 2018 Equinox is handsome, its not a revolutionary design. The front incorporates some of the more popular features: LED running lights, power ridges in the hood and bumpers that are well integrated into the fenders. Premium versions get more chrome, larger wheels and upgraded lighting for added appeal. The interior does a good job with the useful features: climate controls and the standard touchscreen infotainment system, for example. The steering wheel and gauges are improved over the previous generation and will be familiar to anyone who has recently driven Chevys Malibu sedan. (The Start/Stop system is a little more annoying than most other vehicles, but most owners probably wont notice it after awhile.) The new Equinox has plenty of legroom in the rear, along with USB outlets to make sure iPad users of all ages can continue to charge up on long trips after all, isnt anyone shopping for a midsize crossover likely compromising for the sake of children? All of this makes for a solid entry into the market segment. For those who configure an Equinox correctly, however, it can be a lot more than just a comfortable commuter. The base motor is a 1.5-liter turbocharged unit; a 1.6-liter turbodiesel and 2.0-liter gas turbo are available as options. The 2.0-liter is at the top of the power ladder, which is what people should really want in a crossover. A 3.6-liter V6 that was available in the previous generation looked good on paper but just didnt feel quite peppy enough for the premium it was commanding. The 252 horsepower in the new 2.0-liter turbo makes less muscle than the old six-cylinder, but its a far superior motor. The turbocharged power plant delivers its full force in an immediate and mighty lump just like the hot hatchbacks many Equinox owners probably had in their youth. In fact, peg the accelerator to the floor and you get a little adolescent tire squeal. This could have been removed with different tires, differential and other components, but were glad Chevys engineers left it in the final product. It gives the Equinox a taste of juvenile fun thats missing in other crossovers. More of this youthful feeling comes from a very nimble chassis. The steering is light but confident, and the body doesnt roll too much during cornering. It also helps that the 2018 model is nearly 400 pounds lighter than its predecessor. All in all, the new Equinox has a very car-like ride. And thats the recipe for a home run in the crossover category. Because the heart of this market segment is consumers who want the versatility of a wagon and a tough off-road appearance, but deep down also secretly desire something a little more fun thats reminiscent of the days when they had less responsibility. Getting the right Equinox also requires a mindful eye on the budget. A car like our tester a Premiere trim with nearly every option box checked carries a sticker price of more than $40,000. All-wheel drive can cost an extra $2,000-$4,000, depending on packaging. All this puts the top-level Equinox in some prestigious badge territory. Theres a much lower price point on the 2.0-liter Equinox. Chevrolet offers this motor on lower trim levels and has good incentive packages that can make the right sale and option combination total an out-thedoor price closer to $27,000 or even less. Not bad for a well-equipped ride that buys back a hint of your youth. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

DLC Executive Chef Amy Peters will demonstrate healthy meals that are quick and easy for young professionals on the go. She will discuss how what we SEE CHEF, A29 Snoozing strengthens memories you form during the day NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHWhen you learn something new, the best way to remember it is to sleep on it. Thats because sleeping helps strengthen memories youve formed throughout the day. It also helps to link new memories to earlier ones. You might even come up with creative new ideas while you slumber. What happens to memories in your brain while you sleep? And how does lack of sleep affect your ability to learn and remember? NIH-funded scientists have been gathering clues about the complex relationship between sleep and memory. Their findings might eventually lead to new approaches to help students learn or help older people hold onto memories as they age. Weve learned that sleep before learning helps prepare your brain for initial formation of memories, says Dr. Matthew Walker, a sleep scientist at the University of California, Berkeley. And then, sleep after learning is essential to help save and cement that new information into the architecture of the brain, meaning that youre less likely to forget it. While you snooze, your brain cycles through different phases of sleep, including light sleep, deep sleep, and rapid eye movement sleep, when dreaming often occurs. The cycles repeat about every 90 minutes. The non-REM stages of sleep seem to prime the brain for good learning the next day. If you havent slept, your ability to learn new things could drop by up to 40 percent. You cant pull an all-nighter and still learn effectively, Walker says. Lack of sleep affects a part of the brain called the hippocampus, which is key for making new memories. You accumulate many memories, moment by moment, while youre awake. Most will be forgotten during the day. When we first form memories, theyre in a very raw and fragile form, says sleep expert Dr. Robert Stickgold of Harvard Medical School. But when you doze off, sleep seems to be a privileged time when the brain goes back through recent memories and decides both what to keep and what not to keep, Dr. Stickgold explains. During a night of sleep, some memories are strengthened. Research has shown that memories of certain procedures, like playing a melody on a piano, can actually improve while you sleep. Memories seem to become more stable in the brain during the deep stages of sleep. After that, REM the most active stage of sleep seems to play a role in linking together related memories, sometimes in unexpected ways. Thats why a full night of sleep may help with problem-solving. REM sleep also helps you process emotional memories, which can reduce the intensity of emotions. Its well known that sleep patterns tend to change as we age. Unfortunately, the deep memory-strengthening stages of sleep start to decline in our late 30s. A study by Dr. Walker and colleagues found that adults older than 60 had a 70 percent loss of deep sleep compared to young adults ages 18 to 25. Older adults had a harder time remembering things the next day, and memory impairment was linked to reductions in deep sleep. The researchers are now exploring options for enhancing deep stages of sleep in this older age group. While we have limited medical treatments for memory impairment in aging, sleep actually is a potentially treatable target, Dr. Walker says. For younger people, especially students, Dr. Stickgold offers additional advice. Realize that the sleep you get the night after you study is at least as important as the sleep you get the night before you study. When it comes to sleep and memory, he says, you get very little benefit from cutting corners.

Keeping student athletes in shape deemed the best job in the worldBeyond school nurses who help all students, Collier County Public Schools and NCH have been collaborating for two decades for the benefit and well being of our student athletes, their families and, ultimately, all of us. NCH has certified athletic trainers, seven full-time and three part-time, several with masters degrees, who along with a supervising coordinator attend almost every high school contact-sport practice and game. Although one might think an athletic trainers role would be limited to treating physical injuries, our folks relate that 75 percent of what they do involves coaching, mentoring and emotional support for teens who are undergoing huge growth. Never a typical day. Playing a lot of roles. Wearing many hats. Becoming a substitute mom, dad, aunt or uncle. These are some of the ways our athletic trainers describe their jobs and the relationships they form with student athletes. They also teach, both informally and formally. And they travel with their teams to away games, sometimes spending weekends on the road. Being the first line for medical care at games involves everything from sprained ankles to cardiopulmonary resuscitation. A referee at a recent basketball game went into cardiac arrest and was rescued by certified athletic trainer Kristina Chao and her colleagues using the high schools automated external defibrillator. The stress of athletic competition also sometimes brings medical conditions previously unknown to the surface. A student who couldnt catch his breath was subsequently diagnosed with athletic heart syndrome. Our athletic trainers also address concussions, dental trauma, fractures, spinal injuries, dehydration, skin diseases and other unforeseen contact sport fallouts. Keeping students in school is a priority. Athletic trainers also provide rehabilitation therapy and preventive care in school to minimize time out of the classroom. Yale University undergrad, Harvard Medical School, Columbia orthopedic residency and Boston University fellowship trained sports orthopedist Scott Thompson quickly sees students in his office when needed. When I talked recently to our team of athletic trainers Christina Chirco, Alicia Gaskill, Kristina Chao, Miguel Rodriguez, Hans Smelker, Edisson Cantor and Stephanie Clyne along with their supervising coordinator, Jennifer Staskiewicz, and our school health director, Christene Parker, they shared their collective pride in making a difference every day by having what they all agreed is the best job in the world. Helping our young athletes to live longer, happier and healthier lives is important for everyones future.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationPet lovers across the country were horrified and angry last month after a United Airlines flight attendant placed a carrier containing a French bulldog puppy named Kokito into the overhead storage bin over the owners protests. By the end of the three-hour flight, Kokito was dead from lack of oxygen. In this case, a language barrier complicated the situation, with the flight attendant not hearing, misunderstanding or ignoring the owners statement that a pet was in the bag. United has taken responsibility for the dogs death and refunded the passengers ticket costs including the hefty pet fee. Starting this month, it will place bright yellow tags on pet carriers to alert flight attendants to four-legged occupants. Its not yet known if the owners will seek additional damages, if the flight attendant will be fired or if criminal charges will be filed. In the aftermath, Sens. John Kennedy of Louisiana and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada introduced the Welfare of Our Furry Friends Act, or WOOFF, to create regulations to protect future air-traveling pets from improper stowage. But as all pet lovers know, no amount of compensation, punishment of the perpetrator or legislation can make up for the loss of a dogs life, especially under circumstances that should never have happened in the first place. Its unlikely that this exact scenario will ever be repeated, but there may be other instances in which a pets life is put at risk during travel. What can a dog or cat owner traveling by air do to either avoid or deal with a similar situation? Be prepared. Know what size pet carrier is permitted on board. Measure yours to make sure it meets the requirements, and bring a copy of the airlines rules with you in case of a dispute. When choosing seats, some people prefer the aisle because its easier to get in and out of the seat with the carrier, but there is also more risk that the service cart will run into it or people walking by will accidentally kick it. A CNBC news story reported that Kokitos carrier was slightly protruding into the aisle, prompting the flight attendants demand that it be placed in the overhead space. It may be safer, more comfortable and less stressful for your pet if you are in a middle or window seat. Remain calm and polite, but advocate for your pet if a flight attendant asks you to do something that you feel endangers your animal. The Federal Aviation Administration says passengers must follow flight attendant instructions regarding proper stowage of pet carriers. Pet carriers go beneath the seat in front of you, never in the overhead compartment. Ask to speak to the purser or chief flight attendant if there is disagreement. If you see something, say something, even if its not your pet. Its OK to express concern to authority when you witness something that appears unsafe. Again, ask to speak to the purser if you arent satisfied with the response. Whether you are an onlooker or the owner, record the incident on your smartphone or ask someone else to do so. For your pets safety and comfort, as well as for that of other passengers, keep him inside the carrier. This prevents accidental escapes or negative interactions with other passengers or flight attendants. Finally, some people have criticized Kokitos owner for complying. That is wrong. We have all seen news stories of people removed, sometimes forcibly, from flights when they refused to comply with a flight attendants direction. Flight attendants have full authority on flights, and questioning one can be intimidating, especially if English is not a passengers first language.

Only iPhone X will save me from a blood-sucking zombie deathI finally cut the digital umbilical cord and it wasnt by tossing my iPhone into a raging fire which has crossed my mind many a time. No, it was by purchasing a shiny new iPhone X for more money than it would cost for a round-trip ticket to England. You would think that after hearing about all the data that Cambridge Analytica is mining from my social media posts, the things I Google, and the stuff I purchase online, I would feel violated and suspicious. Since most if not all of my social media activity occurs on my phone, and knowing that Big Brother is well aware that I prefer diet ginger ale over Fresca and that Im a democrat who drives a Ford and lives in the Deep South, Id be ready to reinstall my landline and go buy a collection of encyclopedias although without a smart phone, how would I find out who the funny blonde actress was that was in the tennis scene in Bridemaids? Only Google knows. But I digress. I had no choice but to buy a bigger, smarter, costlier phone. My threeyear-old iPhone 6 was on constant life support and those of you who have an iPhone thats not brand new get it. A glitch in an old update sucked the life out of iPhone batteries across the land and many of us have been walking around with chargers looking for wall outlets like zombies looking for brains. I see it in airports, in restaurants I once even saw a woman at a theatre, before a LIVE PLAY began, try to plug her phone charger into a wall socket when an usher stopped her. I get that people who arent as digitally connected find all that terribly pathetic, as they turn their noses up but hey yall, our phones are DYING. And, no, I didnt buy a fancy new phone just so I could text during dinner. I dont text during dinner. But, its gotten to a rather sobering point where one has to have one of these gadgets to just do normal things like park. Both downtown Fort Myers and downtown Naples have proposed doing away with meters and instead we would pay to park via a smart phone app. What if you dont have smart phone what if you dont have the app and what if you dont have the credit card the app uses to take your money so you can park? Yes, I realize that sounds extreme, but there are actual people who walk among us who happily dont use plastic, the internet or cell phones Im friends with several of them. Yet, fewer and fewer of my old school friends are holding on to the ways of yore. Not when there are apps that allow you to go to the front of the line while waiting for a table at a restaurant (check out the First Watch app for instance), or when your doctor confirms your upcoming appointment with a text, or if you need to get to an address you dont know and your paper map has disintegrated with time. I dont love the idea, trust me but my digital umbilical cord has become stronger, better and more expensive. I just hope the battery holds up while we slaves to technology save our pennies for the new and improved version of the next new and improved version. stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 NEWS A31 www.oaktreedentistrynaples.com 90 Cypress Way East #20 Naples FL (Across From Sams Club) 239-596-5771 Please Join Dr. Carr in Welcoming his Associate, Dr. Hillary FreyDr. Frey is now accepting new patients!

I trace my roots back to 1972, when a guy founded me as a mail order business to sell small telescopes. Over time I offered more and more products for amateur astronomers. Im known for innovation, such as my telescopes that feature auto-guiding systems to easily align on objects of interest. Today, based in Irvine, California, Im the worlds leading designer and maker of telescopes, and I offer many binoculars and optical accessories, too. In 2013 I merged with Sunny Optics, a subsidiary of a Chinese company. My brands include Coronado, SolarMax, LightBridge, LightSwitch, Wilderness and Astro. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Understanding OptionsIf youve ever wondered what options are, read on. Assume that you want to invest in Morse Code Telecommunications (ticker: TAPTAP). You can simply buy some shares of its stock or you might use options, which come in two main varieties: calls and puts. Buying a call gives you the right to buy a specified number of shares at a specified price within a certain period of time (typically a few months). Puts give you the right to sell shares at a specified price within a specified period.Imagine that TAPTAP is selling for $50 per share, and you buy $6 July $55 call options for it. Youll pay a total of $600 for options to buy 100 shares at $55 apiece. If, just before your options expire, TAPTAP is selling for, say, $65 per share, you can exercise them and buy 100 shares for $5,500. Then you can keep them or sell them at their current price, for $6,500. Your profit may seem to be $1,000, but you paid $600 for the options, so its really $400, less commissions and taxes. If TAPTAP stays at $55 or falls, your $600 would be entirely lost. You essentially bet that the stock will top $61 per share $55 plus $6 by July. Options are enticing because of the leverage they offer. With $1,000, you can only buy 20 shares of a $50 stock. Alternatively, that $1,000 could buy many options tied to hundreds of shares of stock. With options, if things dont go your way in a short time frame, the options will expire worthless. Most options expire unexercised.If youve researched the company and believe that TAPTAP stock will rise, youre generally best off buying its stock. You wont have a short-term deadline, and you can hang on until it reaches your target price. Options are not for beginning investors, and many advanced investors steer clear, too. Still, there are some lower-risk options strategies. There are also long-term LEAPS options that you could investigate. Learn more at fool.com/investing/options/options-afoolish-introduction.aspx. OutpricedMy dumbest investment was buying shares of Priceline Group for around $16 soon after the companys initial public offering (IPO) and then selling them for $160 apiece just a few months later. R., onlineThe Fool Responds: That certainly seems like an excellent dumb investment, since your investment apparently increased in value tenfold! But we know what you mean, since the stock has risen a lot since then with a recent price of around $2,175. (That reflects a 2003 1-for6 reverse split, so a comparable, splitadjusted price for you would be about $362 which still stings.) You were lucky to get your shares at their initial price of $16 per share, since its typically just well-connected people and institutions who get those shares in an IPO, with the rest of us scrambling to buy in the open market, often after the price has surged. Pricelines shares began trading at $81, reflecting an immediate 500 percent gain though they ended their first day around $69. In general, its best to avoid IPOs entirely, giving them a year or two to settle down. Many will end up at lower prices. Note that Priceline bought the European hotel booking site Booking.com in 2005, and it has been so successful that its now the companys biggest brand and profit generator, so much so that Priceline Group recently renamed itself Booking Holdings. McProfitsFast-food titan McDonalds (NYSE: MCD) just closed its best year for customer traffic since 2012. A return to basics that stressed iconic brands such as the Egg McMuffin and Quarter Pounder helped, but so did new product launches, a refreshed value menu and food preparation improvements. Customers are loving the fresher menu items and are demonstrating their satisfaction by returning more often.At the same time, profitability has shot to new highs, buoyed by a refranchising plan that, by lowering the proportion of company-owned locations, is boosting operating margins. Investors can expect that metric to rise again in 2018 as the company completes its refranchising push. Meanwhile, management aims to deploy earnings into growth initiatives that include store remodelings, ordering kiosks, a mobile app and home food delivery. The company already offers delivery from more than 20 percent of its restaurants worldwide. CEO Steve Easterbrook told investors early this year that, while executives are happy with their recent wins, we have far greater ambitions. Additional market-share gains would be impressive, but investors can rest easy knowing that income gains are likely from McDonalds in the years ahead whether sales growth accelerates or stays put. The stock recently sported a dividend yield of 2.5 percent, and its payout has more than doubled over the past decade. It boasts a 42-year streak of dividend increases. In 1954, my current chairman took over an Australian company and built a media empire that launched TV channels such as Fox News, FX, Fox Sports Network and National Geographic. It was split it in two in 2013, and I got many enterprises you may know, such as The Australian, Barrons, Dow Jones, Harlequin, HarperCollins, MarketWatch, The New York Post, The Times, The Wall Street Journal, William Morrow and Zondervan, among others. (Fox News went to the other company, 21st Century Fox.) My market value was recently near $9 billion. Who am I? (Answer: News Corp.) Floored by TaxesQWhats the percent floor in tax talk? K.G., Fort Myers, FloridaAIt refers to miscellaneous itemized deductions. You can deduct only the portion of them that exceeds 2 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI). For example, if your AGI is $50,000, your floor will be 2 percent of that, or $1,000. If your miscellaneous itemized deductions total $900, youre out of luck. But if they total $1,750, you can deduct $750. Qualifying expenses include certain home office expenses, tax preparation fees, investment-related fees, job-hunting expenses and unreimbursed job-related expenses. Unfortunately, the recent tax reform suspends these miscellaneous itemized deductions beginning with the 2018 tax year through 2025. So enjoy them this year! Learn more in our tax nook at fool.com/taxes and from the horses mouth, at irs.gov. ***QWhenever I buy stock, do I have to buy 100 shares or more? E.J., DetroitANope. Most brokerages dont restrict how many shares of stock you can buy. You can buy 16 shares or 87 shares or even just one share. Pay attention to what percentage of your investment is going to commissions, though. If, for example, you buy 10 shares of a $25 stock for $250, but you pay a $15 commission to your broker, then that represents 6 percent of your investment, which is rather costly. (15 divided by 250 is 0.06, or 6 percent.) Your investment would have to grow by 6 percent before youd break even and that might take a while. Aim to pay 2 percent or less in commissions. If you buy $1,000 of stock in a company and pay a $15 commission, thats less than 2 percent. Many brokerages these days charge commissions of $10 or less per trade.

A34 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYPITCHFrom page 32 AmbuTrak, an Estero-based company that makes distance-measuring devices that attach directly to rolling walkers enabling healthcare professionals, such as physical therapists, to better track distances covered by walker-dependent patients. Bonita Springs-based Envision Solutions, which offers a computer-based therapy training program that can help stroke victims overcome some vision losses. Stabilized Steps, located in Naples, which has created patented stabilizers for the bottom of walkers that provide people with mobility issues with freedom of movement on sand, gravel, mud, snow and difficult terrain. Now in its eighth year, VenturePitch is open to companies located in Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties that are in the pre-revenue stage or within the first few months of generating revenue. They must also have been in business for two years or less, have a scalable business model and have not raised more than $1 million in capital. The field of 42 applicants was whittled down to 10 semi-finalists before the judges chose the finalists, who will make presentations before an audience on April 12 at Babcock Ranch in Charlotte County. Finishing in the top two would be amazing, said Accugentix founder and CEO Alainah Hacker, who is also her products inventor. She plans to hit the market this summer with a smart phone app shes developed and begin offering the device in the fall. It would help tremendously, said Ms. Hacker. Right now, I have $12,000 in funding and thats going to get me through developing the product, but its not going to get me to the market and be able to sell it. That money would help me get to that point. The contest is joint initiative of the Tamiami Angel Fund and the Adrenaline Venture Fund, dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship in the six-county region. Were really trying to spotlight the entrepreneurial ecosystem here in Southwest Florida, and by shining a spotlight on it, we really hope to bring together the entrepreneurial community to create stronger relationships and introductions, said Tim Cartwright, VenturePitch SWFLs deputy CEO. Most people dont realize we do have an entrepreneurial ecosystem here. We have great entrepreneurs. We have investors. We have the service providers for that entrepreneurial community and weve got to get the word out. Investability is a key consideration for the judges, who represent a broad spectrum of the local investment industry. They include: Jason Dolle, founder and CEO of Testimonial Tree Inc., which helps companies collect, manage and syndicate customer feedback. David Diamond, a serial entrepreneur and angel investor, and the cofounder and president of the Naplesbased national construction management firm DeAngelis Diamond Construction. Tom Gardner, founder and managing member of KeyView LLC, which works with investors, owners and CEOs of health care companies from start up to early stages of development. David Holmes, an accomplished asset protection attorney and president of the Farr Law Firm in Punta Gorda. Adria Starkey, Collier County president for FineMark National Bank and Trust, who has 30 years of experience in financial services. VenturePitch judges use a 10-category scoring system to evaluate contestants. A maximum of five points can be awarded for each of the categories, which cover such things as management team, scalability, market size and marketing strategy. Frontline Equipment Technologies in North Port and Fort Myers-based Booqsmart, an online, discount booking platform for the career and job training industry, were the 2017 winner and runner-up. Keith Grant, Frontlines president and CEO, said the infusion of $25,000 made a tremendous difference for his company, which provides equipment and tools for fire service, bulk storage, marine construction and specialty equipment businesses. The company received its first orders in December and began production later that month. That was the shot in the arm that we needed because we could get product in so that we could start building tools, said the former firefighter. We needed that shot in the arm to get some things in-process because I dont build all the parts at this time because were too small. I use a lot of local contractors and other vendors who specialize in the parts were using or have designed, so that we can assemble our products and get them to the marketplace. Mr. Cartwright said the companies that didnt make the finals arent forgotten in the VenturePitch process. An entrepreneurial expo will be held for them, starting at 4 p.m., April 12 at The Hatchery, Babcock Ranchs business incubator. The event is free to the public. The VenturePitch competition starts at 5:30 p.m., April 12 and will be held at Babcock Ranchs Lee Wellness Center. Tickets are $75. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit www.venturepitchswfl.com. Student tickets are available by calling 687-5821. VenturePitch 2018 Semifinalists Accugentix: Alainah Hacker, a senior biology major at Florida Gulf Coast University is the companys owner and CEO and her products inventor. She developed the device and the accompanying smart phone app after realizing that CBD oil, which has no psychoactive properties, also has no instructions on correct dosages, based on weight and age. Thats what Im trying to solve, said Ms. Hacker. Im trying to make it easier for people that use CBD oil to figure out what their dosage is, the way typical medicines are. For more information, see www.accugentix.com. AmbuTrak LLC: David Scheck cofounded the company with Chris Roseborough, his roommate and fellow doctoral candidate in physical therapy at FGCU, and Rene Gomez. He said he entered VenturePitch because hes seen how the prototype has helped people. I just really believe in the product and have had validation through hospitals, nursing facilities, in-patient rehab hospitals that feel patients really do benefit from this device, he added. Envision Solutions: Company CEO Andrew Maskery said its software is like physical therapy for the eye to help people whove had a stroke and have cortical blindness as a result, to regain some of the peripheral vision theyve lost as a result of the stroke. There are currently no effective treatment solutions out there for our target market. For more information, see www.envisionvrt.com. HarpersLove: Located in Naples, Michelle Mullmans Web-based company provides customizable jewelry that can be designed, online, using her proprietary custom software solution. She said her product is market ready. What Im looking for with the funding is to actually hire people and get the ball rolling with redeveloping the core technology and then developing new products and services, she said. For more information see www.harperslove.com. Jejos Market: Based in Sarasota, the company is a business-to-consumer provider, e-commerce marketplace focused on good-for-you food, beverages and personal care products. Mario Velez, the companys founder and CEO, said hes focused on offering only non-GMO products. What were seeing is consumers are definitely interested in healthier food options and in general, healthier lifestyle options, he said. Were also looking at subcategories that are vegan, organic, gluten-free, dairy free and yeastfree that people are looking for many times because of dietary limitations or because they want to consume healthier products. See www.jejosmarket.com. REvest Exchange: The Naples firm provides an online trading platform for shares of privately held real estate equity and debt investments. Its new to the market, founder William Galligan said of his business concept. Its an open market. Its a big market. Were developing the platform at this time and getting ready to launch. See www.revestex.com. Stabilized Steps: Company CEO and president Stephanie Gomez said the product was invented by her partner, Eryk Hardwick, of Punta Gorda. She was attracted to the business venture because, there are a lot of products on the market, but not a lot that are truly life changing and I believe that this is; that it really changes the lives of people who have limited mobility. That for me was a huge motivation. See www.stabilizedsteps.com. The Nickel Ride: The Fort Myersbased venture is a marketing company that provides free transportation in electric vehicles to the general public. The way that we do that is by partnering with businesses in the community to promote all they have going on, said company founder and CEO Judah Longgrear. Client advertising is placed on the vehicles exterior and displayed on video screens on the interior, and their advertising items are given to passengers. The service is offered within a three-mile radius of downtown Fort Myers and expansion is planned. See the www.thenickelride. com. WarpWrapz Goggles: Owner-inventor Sunny Seabrook bills her Venice-based companys product as the Retro Futuristic Sport Goggle. They feature a wraparound design, UV-rated, scratch-resistant lenses, a strap to hold them in place and frames constructed to be extremely flexible to prevent breakage. One of the biggest differences is they have total, panoramic vision, said Ms. Seabrook. Because of the shape of the goggles, you can see halfway around everything. See facebook.com/2skyman/ YES Home Network: The Fort Myers company is a subscription-based internet platform that supports referral marketing for home service providers to enable homeowners to locate reliable companies. Its a very unique system, said company founder Robert Haworth. Its the only system on the market that combines direct marketing, referral marketing, mobile marketing and social media marketing, all together. See www.yeshomenetwork.com.

B4 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYJust 25 Phase III residences left at Rontos Naples SquareThe Ronto Group reported the astounding winter season sales activity at its Naples Square community in downtown Naples is continuing at an unprecedented pace. Just 25 of the 77 residences in Naples Squares Phase III building remain available. Phase III sales transactions worth nearly $60 million have been processed and the Phase III building is nearly 70% sold. One of the three furnished models in the Phase III offering that are available for purchase with a leaseback has sold. Two of the Phase III floor plans, the Dorset and Emerson plans, are sold out. The Phase III building is under construction and on schedule for completion in spring 2019. The Phase II building is completely sold out. Three previously sold Phase II furnished models remain open for viewing with a sales associate. Situated at 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road, Naples Squares walkable lifestyle and the availability of one and two-story, two and three-bedroom plus den floor plans with openconcept living areas and open-air terraces continue to transform how people live downtown. Eight Phase III one and two-story floor plans from 1,460 to 3,238 square feet under air are base-priced from $750,000 to $1,645,000. The two and three-bedroom plus den plans feature 10 ceilings, open-air terraces, and designer kitchens with an enhanced appliance package with a gas cooktop and hood and a wall mounted oven and microwave. The Naples Square Phase III floor plans offer enlarged, and re-named iterations of Rontos Phase I residences. Phase III residents will enjoy a redesigned courtyard amenity deck with a significantly enlarged pool deck and a 780-square foot pool that is 29% larger than the pools included in the Phase I and Phase II buildings. The new design includes tables under a pavilion that is adjacent to the pool. Gas grills with sinks and seating areas with fire pits will enhance the outdoor experience. A club room and terrace will open to the pool area and include a bar, large screen television, a billiards room, and a furnished fire pit area. Other amenities include a fitness center, secure under-building parking, private storage, and bicycle storage within the garage. Homebuyers have been captivated by Naples Squares location, walkable/bikeable lifestyle, amenities, and floor plans that offer an ideal downtown pied-a-terre or full-time residence at an attractive price point. A mixture of Bermuda, British West Indies, and Coastal Contemporary architectural styles created by Matthew Kragh, AIA, owner of MHK Architecture & Planning, has brought a timeless flavor to Naples Square and created a visually appealing downtown landmark. A park-like landscape design by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, Inc. that includes an attractive streetscape along Third Avenue South that bisects the community has created a pedestrian and biker friendly route that connects downtown with Bayfront. A dedicated public access linear park along the eastern edge of Naples Square will front GoodletteFrank Road and solidify the connection between downtown Naples and the Gordon River Greenway. Naples Square continues to positively impact the economic health of the downtown district, particularly in the Design District in the 10th Street corridor between 5th Avenue South and 4th Avenue North. The Design District includes new eateries, bakeries, galleries, and specialty shops, many of which have been introduced as residents continue to move into Naples Square. Ronto is refining plans for The Shoppes at Naples Square. The project will include retail and restaurant space developed on the eastern edge of the Naples Square site. With zoning of up to 150,000 square feet of commercial space already approved, Ronto envisions The Shoppes at Naples Square as a project that will compliment and complete Naples Squares walkable lifestyle. The Shoppes are expected to offer choices of casual and full service upscale dining, all with outdoor seating, literally within steps of the Naples Square residences. While The Shoppes at Naples Square will have a positive impact on the overall vibrancy of the downtown district, the impact will be more significant for the residents of Naples Square. With the introduction of the Shoppes, the entire Naples Square project will become a self-sufficient neighborhood within downtown that offers residents immediate, walkable accessibility to dining, shopping and convenience retail. That combination is at the heart of Rontos vision at Naples Square. Gulfshore Playhouse has purchased of a three-acre tract within Naples Square, a purchase that will add a new dimension to Rontos vision of a community that not only enriches the entire Downtown District, but also provides its residents with a truly walkable lifestyle. As planned, Gulfshore Playhouse will build a multimillion-dollar, 56,000 square feet complex that will include two theaters and an education wing to support programming for children, adults and families. The complex will be located at Goodlette-Frank Road and First Avenue South on the northern end of Naples Square. The presence of the Gulfshore Playhouse complex will put a regional theater literally at the doorsteps of Naples Squares residents and be easily accessible to residents of Downtown Naples and beyond. The complex will serve as an ideal anchor for the Shoppes at Naples Square. The Gulfshore Playhouse complex is expected to further enhance the appeal of The Shoppes at Naples Square location for prospective tenants, particularly restaurants. Two downtown Naples sales centers represent Naples Square and Rontos Eleven Eleven Central community. One is located in unit 101 of the Naples Square Phase I building at 1030 3rd Avenue South. The other is situated at 100 Goodlette-Frank Road South. Both sales centers are open daily. For additional information, visit NaplesSquare.com or 1111Central.com. Above: Base-priced at $1,200,000, the Phase III Dover floor plan at Naples Square features three bedrooms, a den, three baths, a great room and dining room, an island kitchen, and an L-shaped balcony that wraps around the corner of the building. Right: Three Naples Square Phase III Biltmore residences remain available for purchase, including one courtyard level residence priced at $975,000 and a furnished model priced at $1,035,000 with a leaseback. Below: The Ronto Group reported that the astounding winter season sales activity at its Naples Square community in downtown Naples is continuing at an unprecedented pace.

B6 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMix your metals: only one AQUA II designer furnished model remains available for saleDont say gold and silver cant be friends. You may have heard this unfortunate design rumor about mixing metals, but its time to dispose of that outdated advice. Combining silver, gold, brass, or iron (just to name a few), is a great strategy for adding visual interest and depth to a space. According to award-winning interior designer Jerilyn Antonacci, president of Antonacci Design Group, mixing metals has become very popular. I brought in different metals to furnish the AQUA II model because Ive always loved textured, layered and eclectic spaces, she explains. Warm metals (like gold and brass) come off as a rich pop of color and texture when placed with cool metals like silver and chrome, she continues. Many people think that matching your finishes is the best way to coordinate your home or kitchen, but in reality this often creates a monochromatic and less interesting look. Antonacci reports when using metals, dont forget to consider texture. It can make all of the difference in a space with mixed metals. Combining matte, polished, and hammered finishes create a rich, luscious atmosphere. Additionally, mixing metals with hardware and finishingsmetallic textiles, artwork, picture frames, and wallpaper -are all useable options. Everything in the AQUA II model residence features texture and the textures are varied: smooth glass flooring next to marble flooring, warm wood floors in the bedrooms, and wallpaper of various consistencies. AQUAs contemporary model spans 4,171 square feet under air and includes three bedrooms, a den and three-anda-half bathrooms. The fully furnished model is priced at $2.545 million. The spacious floor plan includes a great room and a living room, appealing to people moving from a single-family home to a maintenance-free waterfront lifestyle. The model reflects the modern architectural style of the high-rise and showcases several features of AQUAs sophisticated and refined design. The model has a great room, kitchen and living room that line up against large windows overlooking the nearby marina. Design elements are very modern: a table with a center cutout, black coffee tables in three layers with smaller black tables, shimmering wallpaper and a linear fireplace. The master bedroom overlooks the water, so Antonacci boosted the view with a large oval mirror over the bed to reflect that scenery. She used lots of white and gold colors, and unique design elements. The wall behind the bed features a wallpaper starburst. Modern artwork is placed throughout. The master bathroom features a twoperson built-in tub nestled against a big picture window that overlooks the water. A silk hand-knotted throw by Ann Gish styles the bed in one of the guest rooms. The second guest room is a blush pink. The den has a long built-in desk and cubbies nestled in the wall. Enhancing the AQUA experience are exceptional conveniences including concierge services, 24-hour staffed front desk, a state-of-the-art movie theater, a private library, resort-style pool and spas, fitness center with his and her glass block steam rooms and cedar lined dry sauna facilities, sky lounge with rooftop terrace and much more. All AQUA residences enjoy amenities that include an outdoor putting green, dog run, three fire pits, a game room with billiards, bar, TV, fireplace and high definition interactive virtual golf simulator, Wii games and Apple TV, three spacious guest suites, plus the Club AQUA social room with large curved screened TV and entertainment area with wet bar, fireplace, coffee bar and catering kitchen overlooking the waterfront and marina, plus a new outdoor waterfront pavilion with fireplace, TV and wet bar. Two marina cabanas and one boat slip, large enough to accommodate a boat up to 50 feet, are also available. Contracts for AQUA Tower II are ongoing, with Naples-based PACT Realty serving as the exclusive listing agent.

Top: Interior designer Jerilyn Antonacci was inspired by the curves of the building and the views of the water at AQUA at Pelican Isle when she created a palate of modern colors and mixed different metals with gold and white in the furnished models kitchen.

B14 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYIm loving the award-winning tennis program at Mediterra!I hope everyone has had a great week! Im excited to share another part of life at Mediterra Ive learned about. My Mediterra Sales Executive, Lisa, and I had lunch on the verandah at the Clubhouse. As always, she introduced me to everyone there. Several of the people I met asked me if I play tennis and told me The Club at Mediterra has one of the best tennis programs in the country. I love tennis! Its a great way to exercise and to meet new friends. It turns out Mediterra has a tennis pro shop and eight Har-Tru tennis courts, including a stadium court and an award-winning coliseum court. The U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) recognized Mediterras tennis program for its outstanding facilities. I decided I had to see this for myself. After lunch, I went to the tennis pro shop and met the Director of Tennis and Pickle Ball, Michael Baldwin. Hes a USTA Certified Tennis Professional and ITPA Certified Pickle Ball Instructor. I could tell hes passionate about making tennis an awesome experience for Club members. I asked him all sorts of questions about the tennis program at Mediterra and why its one of the best in the country. One reason is the caliber of our facilities, said Michael. Theyre absolutely beautiful with hedges around the fences, the stadium and coliseum courts, the pergola viewing area between the two courts its a beautiful setting. Our members and staff make everyone feel welcomed no matter their skill level. There are 14 league teams this season that cover all levels. We have all sorts of tennis activities daily complimentary round robins, clinics, cardio tennis, traveling teams, and a Club Championship. That sounded perfect to me. Ive developed a pretty good game not great, but good enough. I wondered where I might fit in with the folks who play tennis at Mediterra. Every new Club member gets a call offering them a complimentary evaluation/lesson, said Michael. Well get you out there as our treat. Other Club members will walk by and well introduce you to them. Well assess your skill level, see if you want to get on a team, or if you want to do lessons for a while. After a few lessons, you might be comfortable with jumping into our lower level round robins and lower level clinics. If you want lessons, either as a beginner or as a player needing a tuneup, our teaching professionals have fantastic resumes, and an ability to make the rawest beginner feel welcomed and at ease. That approach starts with our Head Professional, Tim Keegan. He won the National USTA Clay Court Tournament last year. Hes an amazing coach whos very patient. I was intrigued by what Michael told me about cardio tennis. Its a great way to stay fit and meet new people. Sessions are held three mornings per week. Participants run and hit tennis balls while listening to upbeat music. Its more of a cardio workout than a tennis activity, but the repetitive ball striking gets people more comfortable with the game. Its a workout more than how good of a tennis player you are, said Baldwin. Its also a wonderful social setting. These cardio tennis groups become like family and can be a built-in group of new friends. As they hit more balls, or take a few more private lessons, group lessons, or jump into a few round robins, most folks get onto a league team, not just for the competition, but for the social side, too. Some people just want to take lessons, or to just have us help them find a game. Game matching is one of the most important things a tennis program needs to do. We do that very well. I dont know if Im ready for it or not, but more competitive tennis players participate in the annual Club Championship that attracts more than 80 players and up to 180 entries in various categories and divisions. The players schedule matches at their convenience over a twomonth period. The season ends with a celebration that includes presentations of awards to the champions, recognition of the achievements of Mediterras league teams, and acknowledgements of the efforts of the team captains. Id also heard about pickle ball a relatively new racquet sport thats become very popular. Mediterra has three new pickleball courts with a highly forgiving, Laykold masters gel surface that reduces the force of impact by 17% and oversized perimeter areas. Mediterra has a pickleball program that is also overseen by Michael. Some people felt tennis was too much area to cover and had too much impact on the body, so theyre loving pickle ball, said Baldwin. Weve got about 200 people on our pickle ball interest list and about 100 actively playing. We did our first Pickle Ball Championship this year, and we had 47 unique members sign up for that. Next year, well have league teams. We have pickle ball 101 for people who have never played, then theres pickle ball 201, and skills and drills. We have round robins practically every day. Lots of tennis players are doing both now, too. Just a couple of more reasons I love Mediterra! See you next week. Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road. The Sales Center and model residences are open daily. Visit Mediterra online at MediterraNaples.com. Above: Award-winning facilities, a staff that includes certified instructors and teaching professionals, and the nearly 200 Club members who play tennis on a regular basis make tennis one of the highlights of Mediterras amenity-rich lifestyle. Left: A 24,000 square-foot expansion of Mediterras 25,000 square-foot Mediterranean-style clubhouse will begin this year and expand the covered outdoor terrace and outdoor lounge areas. The initiative is being undertaken without a member assessment. Below: Mediterras tennis program provides avenues for players of all skill levels, including beginners, to become engaged with the game and with the social opportunities participation affords.

B20 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Kalea Bay offers sensational high-rise residencesClubhouse a phenomenal amenity Its been over two months since the first residents of Kalea Bay, a gated, luxury residential high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, moved into their beautiful new homes in Tower 1. To date, more than 100 of the towers 120 residences have been closed. However, a few are still available for those who want to enjoy an incredible lifestyle today both inside and outside of their residence. Thats possible because the buildings rooftop amenities are already being enjoyed by the towers residents. 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 Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. 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. With Tower 1 nearly sold out, the main sales focus has been transferred to the communitys Tower 2. Like its predecessor, the second tower is also 22-stories with 120 homes. Specifically, 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,919 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Master suites, kitchens and main living areas in most units have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2, which will have similar rooftop amenities as the first tower. Speaking of amenities, Kalea Bays spectacular main amenity area, which includes the clubhouse, opened in early January and has quickly become the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. The 88,000-square-foot main amenity area is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance, stated Lodge. 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. The clubhouse itself features three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, a fitness center, 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. For more information regarding Kalea Bay, visit the onsite sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, twotenths of a mile. Call (239) 793-0110 or visit KaleaBay.com.

The preservation of human history and the environment that shaped it is a fascination to most people. Proof of that is found in the dedication of many volunteers and a few professionals to building and maintaining museums, even for the smallest of communities. Useppa is certainly one of the smallest, with our 100 acre, 1 mile long island occupied by just 115 homes, a club, and the Barbara Sumwalt Museum of the Useppa Island Historical Society. Created by passionate residents and a supportive island management, the museum harbors 10,000 years of history. Open the door and enter a panoply of those years, from a dusty hill with a fresh water spring, miles from the Gulf of Mexico, to the founding of the modern day, water wrapped community in Pine Island Sound. Through the intervening millennias, Useppa was home to ancient animals and peoples, Calusa, Old World explorers, Cubans, Seminole, tax collectors, US infantry and Navy forces, CIA, real estate developers, fishing fanatics, benefactors and rogues. History is a bonding compound for people of the present, and Useppa is no exception. Our museum is a gathering place: to celebrate, experience, learn and share. Every season we are treated to several up close and personal experiences, with authors, photographers, entertainers and artists. Just a sample of recent events are authors Craig Pittman Oh, Florida!; Maritime author Robert Macomber, The Honor Series, Doc Anna, Swamp Doctor; The Florida Grand Canyon, a photo exhibit Everglades: Americas Wetland, with conservation photographer Mac Stone, co-sponsored with The Everglades Foundation. Our Historical Society is able to bring the broad range of art forms to the residents and members of Useppa Island due to the efforts of director Rona Stage. She networks with similar small museum directors and taps the best venues from the artistry of the Florida Humanities Council. Never will you find so much to offer, in such a small and personal place. Except on Useppa Island. Make your escape to Useppa Island.

Collier Blvd. Suite 303, Marco Island, FL 34145 Collaborations expand sound of Lukas Nelson band BY ALAN SCULLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentLukas Nelson has been releasing music and touring for nearly a decade. But hes treating the new self-titled album from his band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, as if its a second beginning to his music career. Theres plenty of logic to that thinking. The past few years have seen the bands profile expand considerably, mainly through a pair of notable collaborations. The band, along with The Devon Allman Project, Duane Betts and other artists, plays at the Peace River Revival on Saturday, April 7, in Punta Gorda. The band backed Neil Young on the Monsanto Years, his 2015 album that blasted the use of genetically modified foods. The group also backed Young on his tour to promote the album. I think that Neil and the band all come from the same musical places, and it kind of stands to reason that wed somehow end up playing together, Nelson said, offering his take during a phone interview on why the partnership has worked so well. It just kind of became a cosmic flow manifestation. Youngs 2016 live album, Earth, was drawn from the Monsanto Years tour, and Young and the group then resumed their collaboration on Youngs 2017 studio release, The Visitor. The group has also contributed to the soundtrack of the film Paradox, and Lukas and his brother, Micah, appear in leading roles alongside Young in the new movie.The Visitor arrived alongside a fall 2017 album that united Lukas and Micah with their father, country legend Willie Nelson Willie Nelson and the Boys: Willies Stash Vol. 2. And as if that werent enough, last fall also saw the release of the Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real The New Album, the groups first album as part of a new contract with Fantasy Records. That affiliation has given the group the kind of recording budget, distribution and promotion that was never available for their earlier albums. Nelson, 28, knew the attention generated by the projects with Young and his father, coupled with the new record deal, meant a far larger audience had become aware of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. So the self-titled album would introduce the band to a lot of potential new fans and serve as the start of a new phase in the groups career. To that end, Nelson not only chose to record the best songs from a large pool of newly written tunes, but also cut new versions of several tunes from earlier albums. He was able to use some of his new recording budget to hire John Alagia (known for his work with the Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer and Paul Simon) to produce the new album. A cinematic quality is what I wanted, Nelson said. I think we accomplished that with Johns help. The opening track, Set Me Down on a Cloud, sets the tone for the groups new sound. The track is even more beautiful and spacious than the original version and also gets a previously absent measure of gospel, thanks to the backing vocals of Jess Wolfe and Holly Lessig of the duo Lucius. The songs Die Alone and Four Letter Word recall the country rock and soul of J.J. Cale and early Eric Clapton, while the groups country roots shine on Just Outside of Austin, a pretty acoustic ballad that features an appearance from Willie Nelson, and Runnin Shine, a ballad that swells to high lonesome territory behind steel guitar and the soaring backing vocals of Wolfe and Lessig. Funk, blues, country and rock filter into the proceedings on the sprightly Fool Me Once and on Find Yourself, an extended track on which Nelsons reedy vocal pairs wonderfully with a sassy guest vocal from none other than Lady Gaga. Nelson met Lady Gaga during work on the much-anticipated remake of the 1976 movie A Star is Born, which finds Gaga taking on the role played by Barbra Streisand and Bradley Cooper in the role of the hard-living rocker played in the previous version by Kris Kristofferson. Nelson is heavily involved in the film. I dont know how much I can say (about the movie), but I know there are a lot of great songs on there and that most of the music is played by the band and produced by me and Lady Gaga and the band and Bradley, Nelson said. I wrote a lot of songs for the movie with her and on my own. You know, I think its a really special thing to be able to be a part of such a fun project. Before that film arrives and gives Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real another burst of exposure, Nelson and his band Tato Melgar (percussion), Anthony LoGerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass, vocals), Jesse Siebenberg (steel guitars, Farfisa organ, vocals) and Alberto Bof (piano, Wurlitzer, Hammond B3) plan to spend a good deal of time touring. Nelson offered a few hints about what concert-goers can expect. We like to just make sure its a high energy show, Nelson said. So we do a lot of the new record and the new material, and then toward the end well throw in some real rockers from Something Real (or the other albums) because there are a lot of fans that we have that love our old material, and we dont quit playing that.

Four plays by Mr. Orloff will explore the relationship between man and woman in a comedic and whimsical afternoon on Saturday. The plays are: Eve and Adam: The Untold Story, a rib-tickling comedy in which God is a woman and Eve is made first; Off the Map, in which a penguin helps a lost couple find direction in an extremely cold place; Can This Marriage Be Saved, in which the human being wants a divorce from God and takes Him to court; and Oedi, a farcical retelling of the Oedipus Rex story that confronts the overlooked fact that if Oedipus married his mother Jocasta, she had to be old enough to be his mother. When Oedipus advisors first explain to him that he married his mother, hes distraught. But Jocasta and the advisors only want to find a way to spin the story so that Oedipus looks good. Mr. Orloff is described as one of the most popular unknown playwrights in the country. His plays have received more than 1,500 productions, numerous awards and oodles of laughter. His one-acts have had more than 700 productions on six of the seven continents, plus a staged reading in Antarctica. He has taught playwriting at his alma mater Oberlin College, at Miamis City Theater and for the Connecticut Young Playwrights program.And Part IIThe One-Act Play Festival continues Sunday evening with these works by David Ives, a clever playwright who always has something to say that you want to hear: Captive Audience, a cautionary fable in which Rob and Laura face a menace in their living room: a television that talks back to them and threatens to swallow them whole; Sure Thing, in which two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes and faux pas on the way to falling in love; English Made Simple, in which the immediate attraction between a young man and woman is translated into comically unromantic grammar lessons as they struggle to free themselves from the banal constrictions of party talk; Long Ago & Far Away, a domestic drama about a troubled young wife who finds herself crossing through Opposites attract in Kalamazoo on the Sugdens Tobye stage SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Naples Players present the Riva Shiner Award-winning comedy Kalamazoo through April 22 in the Tobye Studio at the Sugden Community Theatre. The comedy by Michelle Kholos Brooks and Kelly Younger stars Debi Garnett and Jerry Rannow as Peg and Irv, two endearing 70-something baby boomers who bravely venture into the world of modern dating and discover that love is neither any easier nor less wonderful the second time around. Its a rich, well-played story about love at any age, says Jessica Walck, TNP associate artistic director and the director of Kalamazoo. It reminds us were never too old to be young. Mr. Rannows almost perfect comedic timing, honed by years of working with the funniest people on television, makes him a perfect match for his character Irving, an outgoing Jewish man with a great sense of humor.

MISSYSALSQUIRTTUBBS C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYCOURTESY PHOTOSThe African penguins will be on display until April 15.COURTESY PHOTOSA young visitor gets a close-up look at one of the penguins on loan to the Naples Zoo. African Penguin facts African Penguins are subtropical. They are native to the rocky coastline and islands of South Africa. Their markings are individual and unique to each bird. They have the densest feathers, with 40 to 70 per square inch. Their undercoat keeps them warm and their outer coat keeps them dry. They make a braying noise so are sometimes called Jackass Penguins, though the sound is similar to other penguins. Their internal body temperature is 102 degrees. They stand approximately two feet tall and weigh 5 to 8 pounds, with black feet and pink around their eyes. While African Penguins are typically shallow divers, they can dive as deep as 426 feet. They generally mate for life.African Penguins are an endangered species. Approximately 50 years ago there were 2 million of them in the wild. Now there are only 50,000. This is due to commercial over shing of their preferred food, oil spills and guano harvesting in nesting areas (used for fertilizer) that reduced chick survival. The male builds a nest to attract the female, he explains. The keepers give the penguins fresh palm fronds for material. In the wild, they use items such as seaweed, vegetation and feathers to create nests. Twice, Tubbs has snatched Mikeys baseball cap right off his head and taken it back to his den to use as a nest. Mikey good-naturedly retrieves his cap. He must have thought it was nice and soft, he says. The four African Penguins are part of a traveling exhibit from the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park in Fort Walton Beach. Mikey went up to the Gulfarium to get acquainted with the penguins a week before they traveled down to Naples for the winter. The exhibit includes a 3,000-gallon tank with water kept at a cool 67 degrees. The quartet is part of a community of 16 penguins that take turns traveling. Some, such as the very young or the senior members, dont travel. This is the first time penguins have ever been on exhibit at the Naples Zoo. Visitors crowd the glass, watching the birds glide through the water or climb on rocky outcroppings. The penguins look slightly different than the Emperor Penguins who live in Antarctica. These penguins have a black band of feathers across their upper chest. They also have markings on their chest, patterns of dots, which help differentiate them from each other. Like snowflakes, no two are alike. They also have unique personalities. Sal is the dominant male, says Mikey, always first up to feed and ready to go. Squirt is calm and reserved, timid. Tubbs is the shiest, cautious. And Missy, the youngest, is very friendly. Shes sweet, she loves people and being around them, says Mikey. She tends to run the group. When theyre all around her, they give her a wide berth. Visitors who sign up for Wild Encounter, which costs an extra $105, get to go behind the scenes and feed the penguins. The birds are fed three times a day: once before the zoo opens to the public, then at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. They have a fast metabolism, so theyre always hungry at the feedings, says Sarah Peterson, the zoos education specialist. On a recent day, three of them jostle at the side door of the exhibition when its opened. They know its feeding time. Missy deigns to swim about until shes ready to eat. Visitors, who donned plastic gloves, try with varying success to hold the capelin a sardine-like fish in its middle and slide it between the penguins beaks at the correct angle. A plexiglass panel maybe a foot high prevents the penguins from hopping out among the visitors, but its as close an encounter as you could hope for. When visitors arent around, the penguins, for their own enrichment, are regularly let out and allowed to roam around on an enclosed carpeted platform, where they get to play with toys. They like to play with small, orange wiffle balls. Sometimes they accidentally kick them, then chase after them, as if theyre playing soccer. Sal, Mikey says, loves rubber ducks and will walk around with one in his beak. Everyone loves penguins, Mikey declares. Why do people love penguins so much? Because theyre cute, Ms. Peterson says. But it took her a while to warm up to them. I didnt love penguins (initially), she confesses. But then I got to see their personalities. In large groups, she explains, they all look similar to her. But having just four at the zoo helped her see them as individuals. Now I love them, she says.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 COLLECTORS CORNER A rosewood game table was in the cards for me scott SIMMONS email@example.com God bless Grandma and Myrt. Theyd gone to the library, had done their research and were convinced they bleach Grandma Bolenders early 19thcentury walnut folding table to match Grandmas new maple dining set. The table, which was hinged at the center, pivoted on a metal spike to form a square that could seat four people. It made a nice console in Grandmas dining area. Grandmas mother-in-law had given her the table, and it was a treasured piece. Grandma and Myrt were best friends and neighbors. They did everything together, and that included altering heirlooms. First, they stripped the table. Then they soaked it with chlorine bleach, and with that, the wood grain began to rise and the walnut began to fade from its dark, rosy hue to a gray. They sanded it, then applied clear varnish. It never matched, and Grandma always regretted changing the piece, which she called the French card table. When my grandparents moved to Fort Myers, the table sat near the entry of their house until my mother married, and Grandma gave it to her. She initially used it as a dining table, before standing it near the dining area of our house, where you had to be careful not to bump it, lest the half of the tabletop that leaned against the wall came crashing down on whatever was on the table. And so it goes Thirty years later, it was my turn. I duly sanded away Grandma and Myrts varnish, and applied a dark walnut stain. I thought I was doing right by the piece. It looked better, but the grain still was raised. What amateurs we were! I, too, used it as a dining table, then as an end table. Its hosted many a breakfast and lunch, but never a card game.

Bought: Dej aV u Design Center, the former Loehmanns Plaza, 4086 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 561-225-1950 or www.DejaVuDesignCenter.com. Paid: $123 The Skinny: I had admired this table for many months but did not buy it because I had no place to use it. But then the store had a sale in which some items were 75 percent off, and the table fell into that category. It was built around 1820 of a hardwood thats been veneered in rosewood. The grain detail is exquisite. This table is simpler than some pieces of the same era. The two back legs pivot out to support the hinged top, which opens to reveal a felt-covered card table surface. Its not perfect I will need to have someone repair some of the veneer around the edge, but its beautiful regardless, from its hexagonal legs to its exquisitely grained top. THE FIND:An early 19th-century rosewood game tableSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Regency-style game table dates from around 1820 and was made either in England or in the United States. It is covered in a rosewood veneer, and the top unfolds to reveal a felt-covered game surface. 550 Port O Call Way, Naples, Florida 34102 www.NaplesPrincessCruises.com CALL 239.649.2275 FOR RESERVATIONS!Offering Daily Public Cruises, Seabreeze Lunch, Dinner, Hors doeuvres, Afternoon and Sunset Sightseeing.

C12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Florida Fish Hook Tours PRESENTS The Gibson Brothers The Wang Opera Center Naples 2408 Linwood Avenue, NaplesTickets starting at $30 (Price varies depending on seat location)$35 at the door The Gibson Brothers have won Ibma Entertainers of the Year several times. They are nominated for several IBMA award for 2018. IBMA is The International Bluegrass Music Assoc. FOR TICKETS GO TO: floridafishhooktour.tix.com ARTS COMMENTARYCome to the cabaret at Florida RepEntertaining. Chilling. Amusing. Heart-breaking. Cabaret at Florida Repertory Theatre is all this and more. This iconic musical revels in intriguing contradictions. Theres Tomorrow Belongs To Me, sung beautifully by a boy soprano (Liam Hutt), which sounds like a sweet pastoral, patriotic song until you realize its actually a song about the Nazis ruling the world. Theres the German, Ernst Ludwig (Jason Parrish), polite, courteous and perpetually helpful, yet a fervent supporter of a dictatorship that would eventually murder more than 6 million Jews. Then theres the American hopingto-be-novelist, Clifford Bradshaw (Britt Michael Gordon), enmeshed in internal conflict: living with a woman yet secretly attracted to men and unwilling to admit it to himself. Many of the bouncy, upbeat tunes by Kander and Ebb are about anti-Semitism, living too hard and too fast (and dying too young), how money rules the world. The music says one thing, the lyrics another. Cabaret itself is both historic and, unfortunately, timely. Set in Berlin in 1929 and 1930, it shows a country transforming into a living nightmare while its people deny, deny, deny whats happening. Herr Schultz (Michael Marotta), the local fruit seller who was born a German but is also Jewish insists that They will take nothing away and It will all blow over. Its nothing, nothing, he claims. His romantic interest, the landlady Fraulein Schneider (Lori Wilner), even sings that you learn how to settle/For what you get./It will all go on if were here or not./So who cares? So what? Its a cautionary tale about what happens when people remain apathetic or claim theyre not much interested in politics. Nightclub singer Sally Bowles (Jillian Louis) doesnt feel politics have anything to do with us. But Clifford responds, If youre not against all this, youre for it, or you might as well be. This Cabaret is worth seeing for a multitude of reasons. Its relevant. It speaks to our times. And its wildly entertaining. Demand was so great that even before opening night, the run had been extended. A musical on the Florida Rep stage is rare and definitely an occasion to celebrate. (Previous musicals have been A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and the more recent production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.) Cabaret benefits by having the orchestra (led by musical director Alex Shields) onstage the entire time, playing on the upper level. They sound so good, they must be acknowledged by name: Joseph Brauer (synthesizer), Hillary Ekwall (violin/cello), Leeds Hill (violin), Alexis Fishman (trumpet), Andrew Hubacher (trombone), Rick Costa (drums) Stacy McCaffrey (reed) and Kate Campo (bass.) Some of them double as the Kit Kat Girls or Boys, dancers at the sex club Clifford visits when he arrives in Berlin. The Kit Kat Klub itself, oddly, does not have as strong a presence in this production, though were entertained with various club numbers by Sally, the Emcee (Gary Troy) and the Kit Kat Girls. Mr. Troy is more like Joel Grey than Alan Cumming in the role of the Emcee: a kind of vaudevillian clown. Hes at his best with I Dont Care Much, a haunting, noir-ish song. His other numbers, such as Two Ladies and Money, are entertaining but could use more edginess or bite. For example, there doesnt seem to be any spark or sexiness in Two Ladies; you dont feel that theres really any sexual highjinks going on among the three. Perhaps this was director Stephanie Cards call, or maybe sexual mores have changed so much that the song now seems tame. But the Kit Kat Klub as a whole doesnt seem very exciting in this production. Even though introduced by name at the top of the show, the Kit Kat Girls dont make much of an impression. I wished they were more jaded and grittier, that they exuded more of a dangerous sexuality. Ditto for the Kit Kat Boys. Even their costumes (by Stefanie Genda) are not outrageous or sexy. (And those who double as musicians are not really highlighted; theyre on the second level, but arent acknowledged as performers from the club. Theyre more anonymous accompanists, unfortunately.) The shows two couples take centerstage and command our attention and applause. Mr. Gordon makes Clifford a winning personality, walking that fine line between decency and confusion. We see his character grow during his time in Berlin, and we root for him. He, more than the emcee, is the narrator, describing Berlin as so tawdry and terrible. Everybodys having such a great time like a bunch of kids playing in their room, getting wilder and wilder, knowing any minute their parents are going to come home. And its rewarding to see him finally get the opening words for his novel while seated on a train: a revelation, a burst of inspiration. Ms. Louis brings her own interpretation to the role of Sally Bowles, and its fun to see. Shes giddy, with Garland/ Minnelli-esque jitteriness, girlish and giggly. Shes entertaining with Dont Tell Mama and Mein Heir and then breaks your heart with Maybe This Time. When she belts out Cabaret in Act II, she brings the house down. She delivers these well-known songs with a welcome freshness. Ms. Wilner and Mr. Marottas characters the second couple are a counterpoint to Clifford and Sally. Their romance happens later in life, and it is sweet to see. Theres an underlayer of wistfulness to their interactions. Their duet, It Couldnt Please Me More, is performed with perfect emotional pitch, not going for broad humor or cheap laughs. Both are incredible actors, bringing great depth and feeling to their characters. Mr. Parrish, as Ernst Ludwig, is proper, self-contained and very German. And Jackie Schram plays Fraulein Kost (a woman who earns her money by entertaining sailors sometimes several in one night) with great wit and deception. This is a full and rich show that completely entertains while also nudging your conscience. Its so good, I hope to see it again. (And perhaps Florida Rep will extend its run yet again.) The writer and philosopher George Santayana famously said, Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Seeing Cabaret is a perfect way to use the past to shine a spotlight on the present. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com Cabaret>> Who: Florida Repertory Theatre >> When: Through April 14 >> Where: The Historic Arcade Theatre, Fort Myers >> Cost: $55 and $45 >> Info: 332-4488 or www. oridarep.org MICHAEL ALLEN GALVEZ / COURTESY PHOTOSJillian Louis in Florida Reps Cabaret SERVING NAPLES THE FINEST PRODUCTS FOR OVER 80 YEARS 141 TAMIAMI TRAIL NORTH, NAPLES 239.261.7157 WYNNSONLINE.COM B&G Cotes de Provence Rose 750 MLFREE with a $60.00 grocery order Must present coupon.

S VP r eq ui re d fo r th is c om pl im en ta ry s em i 3 6 inar dures RS SVP r eq uired for this com pl imenta ry semi CONTRACT BRIDGEResisting temptationBY STEVE BECKERAssume youre in four spades and West cashes the A-K of hearts, then shifts to a trump. Youre bound to lose a diamond trick, come what may, but the danger is that you may lose two. Situations like this occur all the time, and must be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. One thing you shouldnt do in this instance is to bank everything on Easts having the king of diamonds. It certainly is tempting to finesse the queen, but that is something you should do only as a last resort. First you should try to learn where the king is located. Accordingly, after winning the trump return, you lead the queen of clubs. When West follows low, you go up with the ace, making a mental note that East almost surely has the king since West presumably would have covered the queen if he could have. Next you lead a club and ruff it. If East plays the king on this trick, which is likely, you have a much better picture of the hand than you had at the start. You still may be unable to make the contract, but at least you know West has the king of diamonds. This is because he opened the bidding as dealer and could scarcely have done so without the diamond king. Your one hope now is that West was dealt the singleton or doubleton king. If he has three diamonds, you can kiss the hand goodbye. So, after another round of trumps, you cash the ace of diamonds, enter dummy with a trump and lead a diamond. Regardless of what East plays, you duck. As it happens, West must win with the king, and you wind up making the contract.

For the most part, Yom Ha Shoah has been observed with candle lighting, speakers, poems, prayers, and singing. Often, six candles are lit to represent the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust. During this time, Holocaust survivors speak about their experiences or share in the readings. Synagogues and Jewish service organizations hold Holocaust remembrance events open to the public. Though LAB Theater is not a religious organization, it is a center for all people and a champion of the arts as a way for people to share and learn from each other. Its mission is to enlighten, bring awareness and break down the walls of fear and hatred with education and understanding. LAB Theater is at 1634 Woodford Ave. near downtown Fort Myers. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and seating is on a first come, first served basis. For more information, call 218-0481 or visit www. laboratorytheaterflorida.com.

Sadly, theres little suspense and its almost always dull. Rated PG-13.The Hurricane Heist (Maggie Grace, Toby Kebbell, Ralph Ineson) A U.S. Treasury officer (Grace) must stop a $600 million heist as a Category Five hurricane hits the fictional town of Gulfport, Ala. The action is merely adequate, and there are ample gaps of logic and reality. Its not even so bad its good, which makes it even worse. Rated PG-13.The Party (Kristen Scott-Thomas, Patricia Clarkson, Timothy Spall) A seven-person dinner party goes awry when longheld secrets are exposed. The solid cast does what it can with the material, but theres too much going on in the scant 71-minute running time for any of it to register. Rated R. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman, Michael B.

YesCreepy. Thats the one word that repeatedly comes to mind when watching Unsane, a psychological thriller that keeps you guessing until its traditional horror movie conclusion. Whats curious, though, is that the movie also seems intent on commenting on health insurance, health care and prescription medication, topics that director Steven Soderbergh first touched on in Side Effects (2013) and handles more subtly here. These elements dont make or break Unsane, but they add a level of subtext beyond is the main character crazy? and work well within the narrative. Claire Foy, heretofore best known as Queen Elizabeth on The Crown, stars as Sawyer Valentini, a data analyst who recently moved away from Boston to avoid a stalker. Unpleasant, to be sure. She settled in Pennsylv ania, and in the opening moments we get the standard scenes of her being competent at her job, hit on by her boss and going on a blind date that goes well. Until it doesnt. Not because the guy does anything wrong, though; she has a flashback to her stalker and the evening is ruined. Sawyer seeks help at a mental hospital and is involuntarily committed for seven days. Heres where the critique of the health-care system comes. One of the patients, Nate (Jay Pharoah), tells her (and us) that intake nurses look for the slightest reason to consider a person potentially dangerous to him/ herself or others and, because they know health insurances will cover a seven-day stay, bam, theyre admitted. And once the seven days are up and insurance stops paying, wow, theyre magically cured. For Sawyer, though, her psychosis might be real. She accuses one of the orderlies, George Shaw (Joshua Leonard), of being David Strine, the man who stalked her in Boston. One of the joys of Unsane is figuring out how much is in Sawyers head and how much is real. One of the disappointments is that were not given more of an opportunity to figure it out; the reveal comes too early, leading to a weaker third act than the film should have had. Still, theres enough to keep us intrigued, and Foy is quite good. Those who only know her as the queen will see a totally different person on screen here, a sign that shes is a legitimately talented actress who has a bright career ahead. Leonard, Pharoah and Amy Irving as Sawyers mother are also strong in supporting turns. Theres one issue thats tough to reconcile about Unsane, however, and it has nothing to do with the plot. Its that (presumably in an effort to keep the budget low, and as a kind of experiment) Soderbergh shot the film using iPhone cameras. The results look, well, amateurish. Given that those cameras are capable of 4K-wide-screen resolution, theres no reason for the film to look as cheap as it does. If the intention was to create an unsettling mood, the end result is unsuccessful. This is the first horror/psychological thriller Soderbergh has made, and theres enough good in Unsane to give it a look. No doubt if he makes another film of this genre, it will be even better. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> One of director Steven Soderberghs frequent collaborators a big time movie star has a cameo in this lm.Did you know?

Can you tell me what they have planned? Ginger F., via emailA: The CW has lots of stuff on the docket for the upcoming pilot season, including a Ben Stiller project called In the Dark. It centers on the story of a flawed and irreverent blind woman who is the only witness to the murder of her drug-dealing friend. After the police dismiss her story, she sets out with her dog, Pretzel, to find the killer. Another series on the way is Spencer, about a rising high-school football player from South Central Los Angeles whos recruited to play for Beverly Hills High. The story is inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger. Theres also Skinny Dip, based on the Carl Hiaasen novel of the same name, that follows a woman who, after her husband tries to kill her on their second wedding anniversary, teams up with an ex-cop to get revenge on her cheating spouse. Still another new CW offering is Playing Dead, a dramedy about a dysfunctional father and son whose lives are turned upside down when the wife/ mother who abandoned them 15 years earlier wants them to help her fake her own death. And finally, The End of the World as We Know It tells the tale of a prison spaceship, carrying the universes deadliest aliens, that crashes in Southern California, and the two women who are recruited to help hunt down the escaped criminals. The series is based on the Iva-Marie Palmer book of the same name. Q: Youve been writing a lot lately about older TV series that are making a comeback. Do you know if my favorite childhood show, Clarissa Explains It All, might make the list? Caty R. in FloridaA: Nickelodeon is in talks with series star Melissa Joan Hart about reinventing Clarissa for today's youths (and quite a few nostalgic adults, Im sure), and it looks like it will happen. Melissa would return as Clarissa Darling, who would now be the mother of the family. Clarissa creator, executive producer and writer Mitchell Kriegman also has been contacted about returning to the series.

THE DISH The Dish: Avocado Toast The Price: $14 The Place: 7th Avenue Social 849 Seventh Ave. S. 231-4553 www.7thavenuesocial.com The Hours: 4-9:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 4-11:30 p.m. FridaySaturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday (brunch served until 4 p.m.) The Details: Millenials get a whole lot of grief over their love of avocado toast, but Im pretty sure Ive been making it for myself since Ive been old enough to need a recovery meal. Im not saying I ordered this at a recent brunch because the dog that bit me was giving me the stink eye; Im just saying the younger generation probably finds themselves in need of a remedy more often than we who have seen the bottom of a shot glass on more occasions than they have. Now that I spread rich avocado over sandwich bread for a nutritious, easy lunch, a dressed-up version holds a very strong appeal I rarely pass up. With pickled red onion, sprouts, grape tomatoes and greens, this version at 7th Avenue Social is savory, healthy and filling everything I look for when avocado is calling my name. I will not apologize for my love of avocado toast. One More Thing: Our stop at 7th Avenue Social was a family get-together. The kids took one look at the sophisticated brunch menu and decided there wasnt a single thing they wanted to eat, so we had them split the indulgent French toast. Oh, my, was it good. Unfortunately, I was only able to get a bite after imposing the Mommy Tax, which entitles me to a small amount of any treat. Totally worth it. Lindsey Nesmith firstname.lastname@example.org

Bills on the East Trail has what youre after. Never mind the somewhat drab exterior. Theres valet parking and a thoughtful staff whose aim is to ensure guests have a great evening. Booths are most distant from the band, so you might land one if you want it (although most people the night of our visit were more interested in proximity to the band and dance floor). There are no surprises on the menu, but the New Englandthemed seafood menu is solid with lots of choices for meat and seafood lovers. Salads were fresh and the clam chowder was laden with clams and potatoes. A surf and turf special included a tasty one-pound lobster, corn on the cob and a big baked potato along with the steak, which needed more seasoning. Both the wine list (bottle and glass) and cocktail menu contained a wealth of choices. And the band played almost the whole time we were there. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2016 Escargot 41, Park Shore Plaza, 4339 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 793-5000 Sold by its founder, Patrick Fevrier, to current owner Stoyan Panayotov a couple of years back, this cozy little restaurant retains its French menu, charm and most of its many snail appetizers. I can recommend the Fricassee 41 snails in scrambled eggs, tomatoes and herbs with a puff pastry top as well as the sea-salt-cured hickory smoked salmon coated in coffee, two long-time signature dishes. The house pate, a country style studded with pepper, is a winner, too. Entrees of tournedos lesdiguiere, beef tenderloin in a marsala mushroom sauce and a flaky bronzino in an elegant almond beurre meuniere sauce were first rate. The duck, however, was disappointing, as the skin was not crisp as described on the menu and somewhat fatty. A chocolate souffl was right on point, but the raspberry version seemed less vibrant. Service was vigilant throughout the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2017 The Fish House, 4685 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; (239) 495-5770 When all you need is a grouper sandwich with a cold beverage and a waterfront view, this will do nicely. If youre hungering for food thats a tad more ambitious, The Fish House aspires to meet your needs as well with offerings such as miso-glazed Chilean sea bass. This dive bar-meets-fine dining approach succeeds much of the time. Pan-seared hogfish with zesty lemon butter and a fried shrimp poboy were highlights, while a soupy crab and shrimp dip with few shrimp marked the low point. Given its appealing channelside location, diners are likely to overlook some of the shortcomings, including service that can be hit and miss. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2017 Fuse Global Cuisine, 2500 Tamiami Trail N., Naples; 455-4585 Chef/owner Greg Scarlatos has a deft hand with flavors and textures, creating dishes that are imaginative and appealing. A huge bowl of sauted Prince Edward Island mussels bathed in garlic, white wine, herbs and spices, topped with red pepper rouille and grilled crostini is a great starter. So, too, is a hearty version of the Thai soup, tom gha, a coconut-infused shrimp stock with mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes and plump Gulf shrimp. The nightly fish special, corvina, was prepared with sauted Swiss chard, almond-jasmine rice, coconut green curry, tamarind coulis and fiery green papaya slaw. The various textures and flavors worked well together. For a Latin flavor, consider the pan-seared diver scallops and mojo pork belly with black bean ragout, roasted poblano crema, roasted maduros and tomato-avocado-corn relish. This dish was a bit more complex than it needed to be, but everything was expertly prepared. For dessert, consider the brown butter Bulliet, a brown butter cake laced with bourbon and topped with thick cinnamon praline sauce and vanilla ice cream. Nice wine list and creative craft cocktails here, too. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2017 Meridian Caf, Meridian Marketplace, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 280-5536 Corned beef hash crafted from housemade corned beef, fresh-squeezed orange juice, just-baked cinnamon rolls that are as big as your head this and more is quickly attracting a loyal following to Chef Raena Hobsons Meridian Caf at where else? the Meridian Marketplace. The aforementioned hash contained generous chunks of just-saltyenough corned beef, potatoes, onions and secret spices, accompanied by two fried eggs and toast. Lunch here is no slouch, either. A grouper sandwich came on a slightly pink brioche bun (beet juice gives it that pink hue) came with a side of lemon tartar sauce and hot, crisp, lightly salted fries. Service was friendly and warm throughout the meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2017 Key to ratings Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C35 CUISINE REVIEWKareems Lebanese Kitchen brings Middle Eastern flair to East TrailFirst, there was 21 Spices by Chef Asif, a sophisticated Indian restaurant that set up shop on the East Trail in Sugden Park Plaza. In February, that popular spot got an equally classy neighbor: Kareems Lebanese Kitchen, which serves Mediterranean fare in an upscale space as befits the Naples market. Although you might think kareem is the name of the chef (as did a group dining next to us who asked the chef Are you Kareem? when he emerged with their appetizers), the word means generous in Lebanese. And thats the spirit with which chef/owner Rachid Eido wishes to serve his guests. Mr. Eido, a third-generation chef, brings a serious pedigree with him. He is a former chef at the InterContinental in Texas, the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore and the chain called Lebanese Taverna in Washington, D.C. Now he has his own lovely restaurant filled with cedar and copper and lots of people hungering for baba ghanoush, kibbeh, shawarma, kabobs and, of course, baklava. On the busy Saturday night just six weeks after opening, he and his staff did a good job of making guests feel welcomed and wanted. We arrived early enough that our server was able to take our order, have our wine delivered to the table and bring our appetizers before the dining room really started to get busy. Fresh, hot pitas arrived in short order. They were steaming and ideal for ripping into pieces to dip into the seasoned olive oil on the table. A bottle of Chateau Musar Jeune Rouge 2014 from Lebanons Bekaa Valley was lightly chilled and fruity without being sweet. A combination of cinsault, syrah and cabernet sauvignon grapes, it had a big grape flavor intermingled with cherries and berries. And because it was unoaked, the fruit was not overpowered by heavy tannins. The Chef Rachid Platter ($14) arrived quickly along with a roasted beet salad ($9). The platter resembled a round tic-tactoe board, with each spot filled with a small portion of one of the mezze (appetizers) offered on the menu. There was enough for two to each have a couple of bites of creamy hummus, smoky baba ghanoush, crunchy parsley-laden tabbouleh, grape leaves stuffed with rice and garbanzos, nicely fried kibbeh atop a mound of labneh (a strained yogurt), crunchy falafel, a little spinach pie called fatayer spinach, a deconstructed moussaka and Chef Rachids eggplant salad. Each item was attractively plated, with a bit of radish salad beneath the falafel, little pools of olive oil on top of the hummus and baba ghanoush and a lemon slice accompanying the grape leaves. If you have four people dining, Id recommend getting two of these. The beet salad, with its mix of arugula, oranges, pine nuts, pomegranate seeds, feta, beets and lemon dressing, was refreshingly light and proved to be a fine complement to the platter. A platter of mixed kabobs ($25) followed, with one chicken, one lamb and one kafta, a long cylindrical meatball made of ground meat (this one tasted like beef with perhaps a bit of lamb) and seasoning. They had been removed from the skewers on which they cooked. Each was moist and nicely seasoned. A ratatouille-style vegetable medley and rice accompanied the meats. It was a generous dish and more than I could eat after the appetizer sampler. My companion enjoyed a properly grilled salmon fillet that was lightly seasoned and accompanied by the same vegetables and something the menu called bourgol, which I believe was bulgur, judging from the size and consistency of the groats. For dessert? Well, baklava ($7.50), of course: two squares of the layered phyllo with nuts and spices along with a fruity drizzle over it. We also tried the oum ali ($7.50), which our server described as something akin to bread pudding and it was, in a loose sense. It was a cup full of phyllo, raspberry cake, coconut, raisins, nuts and cream. All the ingredients were well chopped, resulting in a crumbly, chewy consistency with a creamy dollop of whipped cream on top. If I could change one thing here it would be the manner of service. Id recommend that servers get specific sections, rather than being assigned tables in a rotating fashion, which means that one server can have tables on both sides of the dining room and out on the patio as well. This results in a lot more running on their part, which makes them not as accessible and their tips perhaps not as generous as they would be if all their tables were clustered. This is a system managers maintain to ensure all servers get a like number of tables and, hence, more equitable tips. (And, on a busy nice such as this one, all the tables were full, so everyone would profit equally.) Kareems is a welcome addition to the East Trail dining scene, where 21 Spices and La Baguette constitute the higher-end options. Given the Indian restaurants success and the popularity of Kareems, it should be interesting to see what other explorers might venture out this way, where the competition is less fierce and the parking is ample. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com A beet salad was fresh and full of contrasting flavors like arugula, oranges, feta and beets.Baklava a mix of phyllo, nuts and spices is a must at Middle Eastern restaurants.
