In one of the states poorest counties, the big change started in 1998 before Airglades International Airport was even a light in a Hendry County commissioners eyes: The U.S. Congress gave the Federal Aviation Administration a permitting track to allow private owners to operate commercial airports. They called it the Airport Privatization Pilot Program. The APPP was a nice idea aimed at bringing big capital into the air transport business, but no one in the United States did it in any sizeable way. That is until now, more than 20 years later and smack in the middle of Floridas southern peninsula, roughly 100 miles northwest of Miami International Airport, in Clewiston. There, a big change seems much more likely than ever before. Lying in the shadow of Lake Okeechobees western dike, a massive airport project underway since 2010 may soon become the first, according to hopeful Hendry County officials and representatives of the private firm Airglades International Airport Inc. Its surrounded by sugar-cane fields flanking four-lane highways and a railroad track. Earlier in the year, the FAA completed a multi-year environmental study of the project, and achieved a finding of no significant impact, by the proposed new cargo airport on the sensitive environment of the region, said Charles Chapman, Hendry County administrator. That was a major hurdle in the permitting process, according to Karson Turner, a Hendry County commissioner.

(My wife occasionally brings a copy of FW home from a doctors office, etc.) Books? Herman Melville? Hemingway? What? Surely you jest. I wrote 100,000 words in a political blog before realizing that anything more than a sentence or two is overly burdensome. The written word will not survive this century, (as a result of) mostly technological advances or perhaps by edict of our Most Eminent and Gracious Leader on Trumps 130th birthday the disease of aging having long been secretly eradicated for billionaires. MelReply: Mel, thank you, as always. Were online: www.floridaweekly.com. Its a new invention. Now we give you words with electricity rather than ink and paper. It works better. Words are more powerful than nukes. People love power. Therefore, people love words and always will. As for our Most Eminent and Gracious Leader, hes been dead for years. Brain dead. RogerOn public schools and superintendent salaries (letters shared with Mr. Williams):From: Angela Schivinsky, Florida Weekly Fort Myers publisher: To: Melissa Cofta, Lee Schools advisory committee member: Hi! Just saw your FB post about the proposed school tax. Do you have insight or thoughts about the superintendent getting a $24,000 raise last week while classrooms are underfunded? Not trying to stir the pot, just curious. Reply from Ms. Cofta: Yes, my opinion is that its one of the most difficult jobs in our region The burden of responsibility on the superintendent is tremendous, and its a 24/7 job that is severely underappreciated. Here are a few (of his) notable achievements: We went into this past weekends graduations with the highest graduation rate this district has ever seen: 78.7 percent. That rate climbs to 88.7 percent when you include only our traditional high schools. We exceeded our Vision 2020 target for the second year in a row. Whats even better? We are closing the achievement gap. The graduation rate for our African American and Hispanic students jumped by 5 percent and 1.3 percent respectively, and we expect those numbers to increase this year. We made the second highest gains in district history in student achievement. Our students improved in Math, Science, Language Arts and Reading. The number of schools in Differentiated Accountability those in need of intervention decreased. In the last three years we have gone from 23 DA schools down to just five. And this year we hope to have none. More things to consider: Collier Countys superintendent gets paid more than Dr. Adkins and Colliers district is half of the size of Lees. If this were the private sector, someone responsible for 110,000+ people (students and staff), and a $400-plus million budget would be getting paid MILLIONS in salary. Dr. Adkins certainly isnt doing this job for the money. (Its) really a personal passion for service and making progress for the next generation! Reply from Roger: So cool to see you two hotshots exchanging letters. Thanks for sharing them with me. Heres what I think as a general rule: Spend money on education, make society better. Dont spend money on education, might as well cut the wings off your plane and turn the controls over to your children. ( Note: public schools superintendent salaries: Palm Beach County, $290,000; Collier County, $220,000-plus; Lee County, $209,000.) On The living blues, Florida Weekly, June 6 Roger Williams: I just read your article and wanted to thank you for your mention of the new Peace & Justice Memorial in Montgomery. We did part of the Mississippi Blues Trail & Loraine Hotel/ MLK Memorial last year while we evacuated for Irma. This year (we are) doing the Selma to Montgomery march route. Your article was the first Ive heard of it and researching the Memorial brought me to tears. We will go. Thank you. Your sons perspective on recognition of the Blues agrees with my experience having discovered it and Muddy Waters as a teen during the Vietnam protest era. Insightful young man...I never put it together! Thanks again, Joyce ClarkReply: Joyce, thank you. What makes me most blue is thinking how much talent we squandered and how many people we mistreated for 100 years, from the end of the Civil War in 1865 to the passing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964. When I say we, Im talking about the greatest generation and every generation before them. On The Gun, May 30, Florida Weekly Roger: We dont agree on some matters, but Ive been meaning to tell you I do agree somewhat with your recent article on guns. I dont own a gun, never have. But I did grow up with them. My stepfather had several but I never touched them unless we were going hunting or target shooting. I was quite good at skeet shooting with a shotgun, but havent shot a gun in at least 50 years. I dont remember anything pertaining to kids taking guns to school let alone killing anyone when I grew up. I started first grade in 1948 and graduated high school in 1960 and had a stay-at-home mom, who turned 97 last month. I do think we have lots of problems in this country because so many mothers are now working and kids come home to an empty house. I believe the U.S. has a problem and its not just guns. Again, good article. Bob from ColoradoReply: Bob, many thanks. Do what your mother says. I do what mine says, and shes only 90. Doesnt know as much as yours, not old enough, but I still follow her advice. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

North Korea could give him some pointers on how the United States will exist as another pariah nation. No, were not one yet, but the other G-7 heads of state could barely hide their disgust and were talking openly about becoming the G-6 now that Trump is blasting the Old World Order of trade agreements and so many geopolitical arrangements, turning things into the New World Disorder. The group used to be the G-8, but the other members tossed out Russia in 2014 over Vladimir Putins decision to take over Crimea. Now the president has added another layer to the antagonism, by pushing to have Russia readmitted. First Vlad, then Chinas Xi Jinping, Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and now Kim. Im hardly the first one to wonder why the leader of the free world, meaning POTUS, seems to get along with those who rigidly rule their unfree countries while picking fights nonstop with those who govern countries with a tradition of democracy. Mind you, there is much to improve in a rigged worldwide system that has calcified since it was cobbled together after World War II. Still, mindlessly upending the intricately woven military, diplomatic and economic tapestry will leave it in tatters if change is not accompanied by careful planning and execution. Now at the G-7s latest confrontation (everything with Donald Trump is a confrontation), Trump threatens to end trade with our longstanding international trade partners. That is obviously absurd -unless he comes up with a way to make up for it with North Korea as an economic cohort. As he was winging away, the Trumpster disclosed that the U.S. had refused to sign on to the usual communique that glosses over diplomatic disappointments. He exploded on Twitter, referring to the G-7 host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as dishonest and weak. That was after Trudeau had made uppity statements describing what really was a Trump-vs-everyone-else series of arguments. By now, just about anyone who deals with Donald Trump understands that part of that process will inevitably involve personal attacks. After a while, some might conclude that with the unavoidable abuse from such a crass individual, it isnt worth it, even though he is temporarily in charge of the worlds most significant economy, at least until he fritters it away. His base might be thrilled by all his tough bluster, but how would they feel being unemployed when theres no market for American goods and the jobs shrivel away? Maybe his millions of followers would be excited if he were to demand another wall, this one along the border with Canada. Theres always the possibility of new alliances, the United States joining with China, Russia and now North Korea. He can leave the old gang behind, even those who tried to be buddies, like French President Emmanuel Macron, who said of Trumps approach: There is no winner, there are only losers when you take that strategy. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Canada is not the enemyJustin Trudeau may be the annoying, youthful avatar of chic progressivism but hes not our adversary. After leaving the G-7 summit, President Donald Trump blasted the Canadian prime minister on Twitter as weak and dishonest, in the kind of invective once reserved for Little Rocket Man. The Trump presidency routinely produces unprecedented events, and here is another: Never before has a president of the United States spoken as scornfully in public about the head of state of a friendly, allied country. Particularly one who has appeared in Vogue. Trudeau is not exactly a threatening figure, although his worshipful, celebrity-fueled press coverage qualifies as one of the more vexing political phenomena in all of North America (Rolling Stone celebrated the fact that he rides a unicycle; TMZ declared him on the clear path to hottest leader in the world). Its not clear what exactly led to the great U.S.-Canada tiff of 2018. White House aides fanned out over the weekend to try to lend meaning and justification to the flap. They said Trudeau had stabbed the president in the back at the meeting. But Trudeau didnt say anything after Trump left the G-7 that he hadnt signaled before namely that Canada finds Trumps steel and aluminum tariffs insulting and will retaliate. The incident is a great misdirection. Canadas trade practices are hardly above reproach. Its tariff on milk of 270 percent, highlighted by Trump officials the past few days, is stupid and indefensible. It is guilty of subsidizing and protecting favored companies and sectors, the way most countries are. It is nothing compared with the worlds great mercantilist power, though. China routinely steals U.S. intellectual property, seeks to distort the entire system of international commerce to its advantage, and is pouring resources into a massive military buildup, with which it eventually hopes to expel the United States from East Asia. Trudeau is the facile, democratically elected leader of a Western society; President Xi Jinping is the remorseless president for life of a hostile dictatorship. Its not a remotely close call who we should be aiming our fire at. That we are dissipating our energies with steel and aluminum tariffs against allies and potentially alienating friends in what should be a united front against China speaks to a key mistake. Trump views the U.S. trade deficit with any country, friend or foe as the problem rather than China as the unique commercial and geostrategic competitor. The flare-up with Trudeau is not an encouraging sign for prospects of renegotiating NAFTA, which also should be viewed in strategic terms. As Derek Scissors of the American Enterprise Institute points out, the trade agreement could extend beyond North America to Britain, which is seeking a new trade arrangement as it exits the EU, and the Philippines and Taiwan, which are pressured by China. None of this will happen if Trump is determined to pursue a protectionist policy no matter what, or he lets his pique at friends get the best of him. The trade war and the fight for our paramount interests wont be won or lost against Justin Trudeau. Beijing, not Ottawa, is our enemy.

Proposed ethics policy for city held up in courts BY KRISTINE GILLFLORIDA WEEKLY CORRESPONDENTSupporters of a proposed ethics policy and commission in the city of Naples will likely have to wait to voice their opinions at the polls. Originally planned for the August primary election, the referendum has since become a decision for the courts. Ethics Naples, a political action committee formed in summer 2017 by five residents, wants to see the citys ethics policy for both employees and government officials rewritten. And they want to put an appointed board of volunteer officials in charge of investigating ethics claims. This is not about playing gotcha, said Ethics Naples executive director Ray Christman. Its really about training, and education and prevention. But critics of the measure say the proposed commission would be given broad, unchecked powers and the nebulous language laid out in its proposal would give this group the ability to impose city ordinances as well. Its too far-reaching, Mayor Bill Barnett said. Now the courts will get to decide whether the policy is fit to vote on. Both sides have filed escalating motions in what Mr. Christman believes will be a months-long process toward a decision, bypassing both the primary and general elections this year. While the group has considered holding a special election for the referendum, the $60,000 price tag might be too much for the 501(c)(4) to foot. The PAC formed last summer and quickly gathered the required signatures to put the referendum on the ballot: 10 percent of the voting population in the city, or about 1,500 total signatures. Mr. Christman said the need arose for a way to independently vet concerns about certain council decisions and how they were made, but the commission would also be responsible for looking into complaints made about city employees. The biggest concern, Mr. Christman said, is having a clear, efficient process in which government officials and city employees would feel comfortable reporting a concern and seeing it handled by an independent entity. Councilwoman Linda Penniman, whose husband is president of Ethics Naples and helped to raise money for the group, said she supports the measure. When she looked to file an ethics complaint against then-Councilman Sam Saad in early 2017 over the 7-Eleven gas station vote, she had to file with the Florida Commission on Ethics. For months after, the state investigated, eventually exonerating Mr. Saad. It was a terrible thing to do to have his fate in the balance so long, Ms. Penniman said. I had no idea it could take this long. Ms. Penniman thinks there is a need for a local board to focus on the city to both offer a venue for complaints and to expedite those with merit. It seems like another bloated layer of government, but it doesnt have to be that way, she said. This seems like the right thing to do and the city should support it. Mr. Barnett said at first blush, he too supported the idea for an ethics board and another improvement to the citys longstanding ethics policy. But after reading into the language, he decided he couldnt support some of the concepts. Weve worked on our ethics policy in the city constantly. It was revised in 2013 and in 2017, and its not like we dont have one, Mr. Barnett said. If you look at the language of this proposal, its so far reaching. It violates, I think, the state constitution. The city has a full ethics policy laid out on its website, defining conflicts of interest and establishing a code of conduct. Complaints about city employees are to be directed to the city manager, complaints about the police are to be sent to the citys police department and complaints about board members are to be sent to the mayor. If a complaint rises to the level of violating a state ethics law, it can also be sent to the Florida Commission on Ethics, the site says. City Attorney Bob Pritt presented a memo at the councils May 2 meeting outlining those parts of the proposal he believes are unconstitutional. He wrote that some of the language in the petition appears to usurp the legislative function of the City Council. His concern comes from a line in the proposal where it reads that an amendment suggested by Ethics Naples shall become law unless five or more members vote against it. In another section, Mr. Pritt argues that by giving Ethics Naples the power to enact these ordinances, they will essentially become a non-elected legislative body. Mr. Pritt also writes that the boards power to investigate claims dating back five years is an executive function and quasi-judicial. Mr. Christman said the referendum is simply a framework that would allow for a commission to be formed, which would then collaborate with city council to create a new ethics policy and rules for the commission. We dont think anything in our charter is improper or illegal, Mr. Christman said. But if there was to be a legal challenge and discussion, that should occur after its determined by the voters. This is denying the voters their role in this to approve this or not. There is no estimated timeline for the courts to rule on the legality of the referendum. PENNIMAN CHRISTMAN BARNETT

Come Make the G L Laird Lile named ad interim Collier County Clerk of CourtTwentieth Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Michael T. McHugh has appointed Laird A. Lile to serve as the clerk ad interim for Collier County following the passing of Dwight E. Brock. Lairds diverse and impressive background makes him uniquely qualified to successfully handle this position until the governor appoints a successor or the voters of Collier County elect a new clerk of the court. I am pleased that Laird has agreed to serve the people of Collier County in this very important capacity, said Judge McHugh. Mr. Lile has practiced law in Florida since 1984 and currently has a private practice in Naples. He is certified by The Florida Bar as a wills, trusts and estates lawyer and was recently elected to a seventh consecutive term on the Board of Governors for The Florida Bar. Mr. Lile also serves on the Florida Supreme Courts Judicial Management Council and Florida Courts Technology Commission. He is also a certified public accountant (inactive). The clerk of courts provides important services to Collier County through the tireless efforts of many dedicated professionals, said Mr. Lile. During this time of transition, it is my honor to serve alongside these public servants as the clerk ad interim. Mr. Liles appointment is effective immediately. He will return full-time to his law practice when his service as Collier County clerk ad interim concludes. LILE COURTESY PHOTOThe late Judge Dwight E. Brock.

Ms. Watts recently launched VictoriaLand Beauty, a maker of organic, all natural skin treatments. The concept began in her own kitchen through the use of various essential oils from plants, fruit and nut oils and active botanical extracts. Her company came to be after a search for products to treat her hyperpigmentation, oily skin and signs of advanced aging proved unsatisfactory. Her skin conditions, exacerbated by a stressful divorce, threatened to derail Ms. Watts dedication to living a healthy, joyful lifestyle. I created VictoriaLand Beauty to solve my skin care ailments and introduce a line of products that left my skin looking and feeling good enough to go naked, said Ms. Watts. I took my knowledge of oils, skin care healers and natural age defiers and started blending. Once I knew I had something, I started sharing it. The response has been tremendous. The company also has a charitable program, donating a percentage of its sales to Boston Childrens Hospital to bring awareness to visual impairments. Ms. Watts son, Cyrus, was diagnosed with familial exudative vitreoretinopathy when he was 18 months old. Ms. Watts found Boston Childrens Hospital and hopes with her giving plan she can help other young boys and girls like Cyrus get the care they need for visual impairments. The proceeds go toward the ophthalmology department, who provides life-changing research and treatment development for FEVR. In honor of Child Vision Awareness Month and Vision Research Month, VictoriaLand Beauty for the month of June will increase its donations to ten percent of all sales.

Support the stores that build homes with a vote for Habitat Collier ReStores BEHIND THE WHEELKia Stinger: an aggressive name with an aggressive priceThe first-ever Kia Stinger isnt out to be timid. Just look at the name. Large grille openings, wind-swept headlights and power vents in the long hood give the same kind of appeal as the Jaguar F-Type. Plus, tall fenders with plenty of flair and a stretched fastback profile instantly remind us of the best sports cars. While the outside wants to be as coupelike as possible, the interior doesnt seem to suffer. The sleek roofline extends far enough that it doesnt infringe on the rear passengers headroom. It also helps that Kia takes full advantage of its mid-size car platform to provide ample backseat legroom. For $32,800, the base car comes well equipped with leather interior (black only), touch-screen infotainment system, power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, steering-wheel paddle shifters and sonar parking sensors. The next rung up the ladder is the Premium trim, starting at $38,000. Thats a big jump in money, but it adds a sunroof, enhanced parking cameras and a larger touch screen with navigation. There are interior leather color options, too which might be the best reason to upgrade. A lighter color can contrast the dark interior trim, giving the Stinger a much more premium feel. Those who are enticed by the Premium trim might consider spending $39,250 for the GT model. There are fewer standard luxuries, but it takes the 225-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter motor and trades up to a 3.3-liter twin turbo V6 that produced 365 hp. The 62-percent jump in muscle makes the Stinger GT more powerful and quicker than some of the most prestigious competition, including the base Porsche Panamera (whose fastback profile seems like a heavy influence on the Kia). The power of the 3.3-liter engine is immediate, ferocious and quite a lot of fun. It feels like theres always power in reserve no matter if the Stinger GT is starting from a standstill or merging onto the highway. But as aggressive as this might seem, the Stinger GT also knows how to amble through everyday traffic with quiet dignity. This dual nature is what happens when turbochargers boost a decent-sized engine displacement. The suspension of the Stinger GT also has that sensible-shoes attitude, taking bumps with the same damping as a family sedan, and the steering is light. The Sport mode can tighten things up a bit for the wild-child commuter, and the standard Brembo four-wheel disc brakes do a fine job of stopping (the red calipers behind the alloy wheels lend a nice sporty touch). The Stinger still wont take corners quite like the BMWs and Porsches that it benchmarked. But in the real world, those who discover these limits are probably already a menace to the neighborhood. There are two more trim levels that go beyond the base GT, capping the Stingers price at around $50,000 (plus $2,200 extra for all-wheel drive on any trim.) The GT1 and GT2 offer upgraded stereos, better leather, head-up display, a performance suspension and other amenities, but there is no more power over the standard GT. So choose wisely for what represents the best personal value. Kia didnt just pull a complete sports sedan out of thin air. The Stinger was born from Hyundais need to give the upscale Genesis brand more premium products (corporate-cousin Kia gets to spread the development/production expense). So there was a much larger investment here than just giving a value-priced brand a halo car. Thats the key to the Stinger. Its an aggressive name with aggressive looks and available with an aggressive motor. But underneath this intimidation facade is a thoughtfully produced sedan. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

Visitors to Merlion Park in Singapore on June 8 were startled to see Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump enjoying a casual walkabout, hand-in-hand. On closer inspection, however, they would have seen the two men were Howard X, a Kim impersonator, and Dennis Alan, a Trump impersonator, who traveled to Singapore in advance of the June 12 summit meeting between the two real leaders. Janette Warokka of Indonesia was fooled: Its so shocking for me. I dont know why those two famous guys come here, she told the Associated Press. Airport officials were less amused when Kims doppelganger, whose real name is Lee Howard Ho Wun, arrived at Changi Airport. Wun said police officers searched his bags and detained him for two hours before releasing him with stern warnings to stay away from the summit. Singapores Immigration and Checkpoints Authority said Wun was interviewed for about 45 minutes.The litigious society If youve ordered a Quarter Pounder recently and specified no cheese, you may be interested in a $5 million classaction lawsuit brought against McDonalds on May 8 by Cynthia Kissner of Broward County, and Leonard Werner of Miami-Dade. According to the Miami Herald, the two are angry that theyve been paying for cheese even though they ordered their sandwiches without it. The lawsuit contends customers ... continue to be overcharged for these products, by being forced to pay for two slices of cheese, which they do not want, order or receive. Also, Kissner and Werner have suffered injury as a result of their purchases because they were overcharged and McDonalds is being unjustly enriched by these practices. While attorney Andrew Lavin admits the mobile app ordering option does offer a Quarter Pounder without cheese, he notes in-store customers have no such choice.Irony Charlotte Fox, 61, an accomplished mountain climber who summited Mount Everest in 1996, met an unlikely death May 24 when she fell down the hardwood stairs at her home in Telluride, Colo. Fox was part of the infamous 1996 Mount Everest expedition chronicled in Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, when eight climbers died. Friends called her fall shocking, according to The Aspen Times. Climbing p artner Andr ea Cutter said of the news, It made me think, Jeez, its just so wrong. San Miguel County Coroner Emil Sante said officials have no reason to believe that it was suspicious at all.Armed and clumsy Things got wild on June 2 at Mile High Spirits and Distillery in Denver when an unnamed off-duty FBI agent accidentally shot patron Tom Reddington, 24, in the lower leg. According to the Denver Post, the agent was dancing and did a backflip, which caused his firearm to come out of its holster and fall to the floor. When he bent to pick up the gun, it discharged. I heard a loud bang, Reddington said, and I thought some idiot set off a firecracker. All of a sudden, from the knee down became completely red, and thats when it clicked in my head, Oh, Ive been shot. A man at the bar applied a tourniquet to Reddingtons leg. The FBI agent was taken to Denver police headquarters and released to an FBI supervisor. Mile High Spirits has promised complimentary drinks forever to Reddington.Sweet revenge In a bid to unseat his boss, Bon Homme County, S.D., Deputy Sheriff Mark Maggs thrashed Sheriff Lenny Gramkow in the June 5 Republican primary by a vote of 878 to 331. So Sheriff Gramkow didnt waste any time: Less than a minute after the polls closed, he fired Maggs, the Sioux Falls Argus Leader reported. As of this moment you are no longer an employee of Bon Homme County, Maggs termination notice read. Maggs, a 31-year-old father of four, will not become sheriff until January, but he is confident the county commission will stand with my family ... and insure that my family will not be left hanging without an income or insurance, Maggs said. Were going to be fine.You think your job is bad? Car salesman Brett Bland in League City, Texas, finally had enough and filed a lawsuit in May against his employer, AutoNation Acura Gulf Freeway, and Jeremy Pratt, a co-worker. Pratt, the suit alleges, engaged in constant taunting ... making extremely crass, vulgar and rude comments and reinforced dominance over his subordinates by regularly entering their enclosed offices, intentionally passing gas and then laughing, as well as pinching and touching his male subordinates nipples. KPRC-TV reported Pratt was fired after sending a text to everyone at the dealership alleging Bland was a sex offender (which he is not). After the firing, however, Blands lawsuit alleges, AutoNation allowed Pratt to loiter at the dealership and continue harassing employees, and Bland was threatened with termination if he didnt sell eight vehicles a month. Bland seeks damages and court costs. Ewwwwwww! In a gross twist on road rage, Henry George Weaver, 69, of New Tripoli, Pa., ended an argument with another man June 8 by defecating on him. According to Lehigh Valley Live, Pennsylv ania state police reported that the accused and the victim got into a road-rage argument, leading the accused to defecate on the victim, but they did not disclose what started the argument. Weaver was charged with harassment. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate

A20 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYfications of environmental assessment including by the national Department of Environmental Protection, and they found nothing environmentally sensitive. Anything that has to be mitigated has been. So there are no major issues to speak of, he said. AIA Inc. is one of three partners together calling themselves Florida Cargo Fresh: the entity is owned by U.S. Sugar, the Hilliard Brothers both corporate growers of sugar cane and produce who own the land around the airport and AIA, Inc. itself, headed by a veteran airindustry manager, Fred Ford. The partners plan to buy the countys Airglades Airport, hugely expand it by replacing a little 5,000-foot runway with one more than 11,000 feet long, and ultimately begin bringing in cargo planes of any size with produce from South and Central America. The planes would offload at Airglades and trucks or even a train on track now owned by U.S. Sugar would begin hauling the goodies north without ever having to get near MIA and its sometimes-frustrating congestion, officials say. MIA officials have resisted the notion, insisting their airport has the infrastructure and room to do the job. In recent years almost two-thirds of the fresh fruit, vegetables and fish and 90 percent of the fresh flowers imported to the United States come through Miami, officials say. Breaking ground could occur at the end of this year or early in the next, said Mr. Ford but its not a done deal yet. The project must still overcome several major regulatory and business hurdles before receiving final FAA approval, he said in a written statement. AIA hopes to complete this process by late 2018 or 2019. Breaking ground depends on final FAA approval. Although the project is expected to cost about $650 million in its entirety, Florida Fresh Cargo has invested only about $20 million, so far, officials have said. Mr. Ford has also publicly expressed hope that the FAA will help pay for part of the project, ultimately.What will happenIf and when the FAAs final approval comes, it will trigger a number of reactions county officials have long anticipated. First, Hendry officials will sell the countys airport to AIA according to the terms of a deal long since negotiated. The price is soft: $13 million for a footprint of roughly 3,000 acres, including the 5,000foot runway and infrastructure. For every 100 jobs the private owners create, however, the price will drop by $1 million, to a bottom line of $5 million. Critics have called that a ridiculously good deal for the developers, almost a giveaway; but officials insist the county will recoup a huge bounty in future jobs and tax income. In a county of about 40,000 with one of the highest unemployment rates in the state, consistently, the economic advantages are many, said Mr. Chapman: Job diversification into a variety of trades both aviation and logistics related. Warehousing development options along with commercial and industrial development is also an opportunity for landowners. Hendry is largely a blank slate and the development opportunities are vast. While AIA Inc., with the Florida Fresh Cargo investors behind it, breaks ground, the landowners will scramble theyve long since started planning, officials say to rezone private lands near the airport for commercial development. Now, theyre zoned for agricultural use. That part, not subject to the scrutiny of the FAAs environmental study, has worried conservationists and environmentalists, including at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, who say theyll wait and see what happens if the project is approved. Commercial and home development around the 3,000-acre site could become a significant factor in the regions future, altering the face of Hendry and its neighbor, Glades County. And the already rich landowners could get much richer. Several years ago, U.S. Sugar and the Hilliard brothers, the predominant landowners, proposed the Sugar Hill Sector Plan to include more than 43,000 acres that could be developed with millions of square feet of commercial space and roughly 18,000 homes in the next 40 years, around the new Airglades International Airport. The plan called for that development to occur in part on land the state of Florida once had an option to buy in an effort to send water south from Lake O., saving the now-dying Everglades, but also saving the now-dying water basins east and west of the lake. Periodically the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers must release floods of fresh water loaded with pollutants down two rivers: the St. Lucie to the Atlantic and the Caloosahatchee to the gulf. That prevents the 135-mile Lake Okeechobee dike, for years under repair, from collapsing when the lake level rises higher than the engineering can withstand, Army Corps officials say. Those released waters periodically create toxic algae blooms and cyanobacteria that threaten human health and destroy fish and marine life, as well as real estate and commercial businesses when tourists give up on them. At the time landowners proposed the Sugar Hill Sector Plan, some of the land was still a purchase option for the state of Florida aimed at stopping that massive environmental dilemma, so thats why there was push-back from the state and probably why the DEO in 2015 objected to the Sugar Hill proposal, said Nicole Johnson, director of Environmental Policy and Advocacy at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. As a result, Individual landowners are making their own individual comprehensive plan amendment applications as they desire, said Mr. Chapman. The states Department of Economic Opportunity did not respond to Florida Weekly by press time to update its position on development around the proposed new airport. Mr. Chapman doesnt expect development surrounding the airport to have a significant detrimental effect on the sensitive environment, he said. He described it as likely to be minimal. We are putting items in place in terms of land use planning that will help to ensure smart growth patterns along current and soon to be expanded urban service boundaries.

The primary purpose of these rate increases is to dampen increasing prices for consumers going forward. In fact, the Federal Reserve, time and time again, has indicated that the speed it raises rates would be heavily dependant on inflation results. So given how important general inflation is to the Fed, wouldnt it be great if there was a leading indicator we could look at that could predict how quickly prices will rise in the future? It turns out there is such an indicator, the Producer Price Index. So what is this index and what does it tell us about inflation and interest rates going forward?When most people think of inflation, they picture how prices of the goods and services they buy every day change in price. This is basically the Consumer Price Index. The change in this index measures the cost of everything from healthcare to transportation to food. Currently, the CPI stands at around 2.5 percent. This means, on average, our cost of living is 2.5 percent higher today than last year.However, there is also a lesser known and followed price indicator, the Producer Price Index. This price index measures the prices at which companies can sell their products to other companies, government, or consumers. This is different from CPI in that it measures goods and services at every point in supply chain. For example, CPI would measure the cost of Cheerios at a grocery store. PPI would measure the price of fuel sold to a farmer to power his tractor to grow oats, the price of oats sold to a mill to be made into flour, the price of the flour sold to General Mills to be made into Cheerios, and the wholesale price of Cheerios being sold to Publix. The great thing about PPI is that it historically has been an excellent predictor of CPI. If the price of gold goes up, it makes sense that soon thereafter the price of gold jewelry at your local jewelry store will go up as well. Or if fuel prices fall, all things being equal, the cost of airline tickets should drop as well as airlines are able to fly their plans at a lower cost. Of course, for a while, the airlines may want to keep that extra savings as profit and not lower prices right away. But in the medium to long term, prices should fall. The most current PPI report pegged the index at an annual rate of 3.1 percent, higher than the current CPI. The key driver of this increase was increases ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com

This should be no surprise given higher crude oil prices as well as steel and aluminum price hikes driven by recent tariffs. The fact that PPI is higher than CPI indicates that prices for consumer goods and services should continue to push even higher going forward. You can bet that the Fed is also paying very close attention to this and will continue to push interest rates higher in the upcoming months in its attempt to not allow inflation to spin out of control. This also means that companies that cannot easily raise their prices to consumers may have their profit margins shrink as rising input costs and higher wages eat into their earnings. With Amazon, Target and Walmart pushing suppliers to lower their costs in their retail price wars, companies like Proctor & Gamble and Unilever may be stuck between a rock and hard place going forward. And finally, consumers may be the biggest loser in this scenario of higher rates and inflation. Wages are still relatively stagnant while higher interest rates result in higher payments on everything from credit cards to car payments. And now with goods and services becoming more expensive, people will have to learn to live with even less.

Zehr, M.D. CEO Medical Director Southwest Floridas premier outpatient surgery facility, designed specically for joint replacement239.592.4955 SeasideSurgeryCenter.com1879 Veterans Park Drive, Suite 1101 Naples, Florida 34109 HEALTHY LIVINGThe delicate matter of finances in health careQuality is always paramount, but finances matter because we cant provide quality without being solvent. At our most recent NCH Board meeting, CFO Rick Wyles and Controller Noble Arrington reviewed our current position, which is good but could change quickly as reimbursement continues to decrease. Since Oct. 1 and in spite of Hurricane Irma recovery, we have been busier than expected but also have had increased expenses. Having the right colleagues being appropriately compensated is mission critical, accounting for 52 percent of our expenses. We have added services that are greatly appreciated but sadly have become important such as 24/7 building security at an additional cost of $1.2 million. Our acuity is up, namely our in-patients are objectively sicker than ever before, probably due to our augmented cardiac intervention and surgery services as well as the fact that less-sick patients are being treated as out-patients. We also have spent over $21 million on capital improvements including Baker ORs, ICUs, energy saving projects, NCH Southeast (just opened), NCH Bonita (opening late 2018), and other smaller projects including planning for the Baker ER renovation. We do have 222 days of cash-on-hand, which is invested and reinvested in the system.

Since 1956, NCH has also provided SEE WEISS, A25 Study suggests combination therapy might prevent stroke for certain people NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTHResults from an international clinical trial of more than 4880 participants, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, show that combining clopidogrel and aspirin following a small stroke or experiencing minor stroke symptoms decreases risk of a new stroke, heart attack or other ischemic event within 90 days. The combination therapy was also associated with an increase in major bleeding, although many of those episodes were non-fatal and did not occur in the brain. The results were presented at the fourth annual European Stroke Organization Conference in Gothenburg, Sweden. The study was supported by the NIHs National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. These findings are likely to have a global effect on clinical practice, as these drugs are easily available in many hospitals and clinics, said Walter Koroshetz, M.D., director of NINDS. As the benefit of the combination was concentrated in the first two weeks while risk of bleeding was constant over 90 days, it may be especially valuable in acute management of a minor ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack. The Platelet-Oriented Inhibition in New TIA and minor ischemic stroke (POINT) clinical trial follows an earlier study, which showed benefits of this drug combination in a Chinese population. POINT was conducted to see whether the benefits could be expanded to a more diverse group of patients. The study, led by S. Claiborne Johnston, M.D., Ph.D., dean and professor of neurology at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, included patients who had experienced either a minor stroke or a transient ischemic attack, in which blood supply to a part of the brain is briefly stopped and can be a risk factor for a larger stroke. Study participants were given clopidogrel and aspirin or aspirin alone to see whether the combination therapy could prevent a larger stroke within three months. Dr. Johnstons team found that the combination of clopidogrel and aspirin prevented more ischemic events, such as stroke and heart attack, compared to aspirin alone. The results showed that 5 percent of patients in the combination therapy group and 6.5 percent of patients taking only aspirin experienced such an event within 90 days. However, the combination therapy was associated with a greater risk of major bleeding, or hemorrhage, than aspirin alone. In the aspirinonly group, 0.4 percent of patients suffered a major hemorrhage but 0.9 percent of patients taking clopidogrel and aspirin had severe bleeding. The findings suggest that for 1000 patients, clopidogrel plus aspirin would prevent 15 ischemic attacks but may cause five instances of major hemorrhage. The majority of these hemorrhages occurred outside of the brain and were not fatal. We saw a real benefit with the combination therapy, but that treatment does come with a risk, said Dr. Johnston. Overall, the risk of severe bleeding was very small, but it was not zero. The study was stopped early because the combination therapy was found to be more effective than aspirin alone in preventing severe strokes but also due to the risk of severe hemorrhage. Clopidogrel and aspirin prevent platelets from sticking together and forming clots in blood vessels, although they work in different ways. Aspirin blocks molecules that activate the clotting process while clopidogrel prevents a specific chemical from attaching to a receptor. Each year, strokes cause millions of disabilities around the world and preventing many of those would lead to not only tremendous health savings, but improved quality of life for many individuals and their families, said Dr. Johnston. POINT was supported by the NINDS Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials Network, a system of research institutions dedicated to emergency issues such as stroke. More research is needed to investigate ways to lower the risk of bleeding and examine the impact of treatment timing on outcomes. In addition, future studies may help identify similar drugs that are associated with fewer adverse events. For more information, visit stroke.nih. gov. allenWEISSallen.firstname.lastname@example.org

A26 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Go ahead. Get that colonoscopy.Remember when Katie Couric had her colonoscopy televised on the Today Show 18 years ago? A camera making its way through Katies innards made colonoscopies so popular that EVERYONE wanted one. It was reported that there was a 20 percent spike in folks getting all 6 feet of their colons checked out after they got a glimpse of Katies G.I. tract on TV. I was not one of those people. The very thought of a colonoscopy, from the prep to the actual procedure, made me both panicky and nauseous. A couple of years ago when I celebrated a certain milestone birthday that rhymes with shifty, I ignored my doctors nudge to let a gastroenterologist go exploring through my nethers. After all, I have no family history of colon cancer in fact (knock wood), no one on either of my parents side has had to deal with cancer. That was reason enough, in my non-medical opinion, to avoid the scope. Besides that, I wasnt having any problems in that neck of the woods. Still, my doctor continued to nudge. My husband agreed. When he had a birthday that rhymed with thrifty, he had his first colonoscopy and assured me it wasnt that bad. I vaguely remember that chapter and mostly recall how grateful I was that we had two bathrooms at the time of his prep and that one was on the other side of the house. The nudging eventually worked, however, and I grudgingly made an appointment with a highly recommended gastroenterologist named Dr. Gutstein (no, thats not a typo). Theres also a dermatologist in town named Dr. Skinner. And I once saw a surgeon named Dr. Miter (as in miter saw). While Dr. Gutstein had a great bedside manner and was super reassuring, I postponed my colonoscopy three times. I kept coming up with better things to do than cleaning my insides for 16 hours so that I could let a doctor inspect my intestines. I nearly canceled a fourth time, but finally cow-girled up. In all honesty, the prep wasnt nearly as bad as I was made to believe by folks whod gone through it 10 or more years ago (I guess things have improved in colon-cleansing world). I drank a small bottle of bitter-tasting stuff, but mixed with diet ginger ale and sipped through a straw, it wasnt heinous (during my research, I found one lady on YouTube who mixed hers with apple juice, served it in a martini glass, and called it a Colotini bless her heart). The following 16 hours were more annoying than violent or painful. I was trying to watch the Tony Awards and had to keep getting up. Other than that, it was no big deal. Bonus: I lost 7 pounds. The next day, the worst part was not being able to eat, but whenever I felt pangs I just kept repeating the mantra, pounds lost, 7 pounds lost, 7 pounds lost. And while I was a bundle of nerves, everyone at the surgery center acted like it was a day at the beach. Even the receptionist, who said, Oh, its NOTHING! You take a nap, you wake up, you go home and eat a cheeseburger. The anesthesiologist treated me to propofol, the anesthesia that Michael Jackson was so fond of. One minute I was humming Billie Jean and the next, I was wide awake in the recovery room. When Dr. Gutstein came in to talk to me, I asked him if I had any polyps. You had TEN, he replied. But, theyre gone now. He even showed me full-color pictures. Ten polyps and one was pretty big. Turns out being prone to polyps is genetic. Dr. Gutstein encouraged me to nudge my brothers and sisters into getting colonoscopies. Since Im an only child, I called my dad and learned that when he was at an age that rhymes with nifty, his colonoscopy uncovered three benign polyps and for a while, he had to get it done every three years. I, too, am now on the three-year plan, gladly. Knowing that 10 troublesome tenants are no longer keeping house inside my body is a relief. If Id known more about my dads history, I wouldnt have repeatedly postponed my colonoscopy. I would have gotten checked out years ago. If youre still fearful of getting a colonoscopy after reading this, simply repeat after me: pounds lost, 7 pounds lost, 7 pounds lost stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

PET TALESKitten fever BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationEvery kitten is adorable, but some people look for breeds with a certain look, size, personality, activity level or other desirable trait. From Abyssinians to Turkish vans, theres a pedigreed cat to suit anyones feline desires. Not everyone starts out looking for a particular breed. Sometimes their choice of cat is a happy accident. That was the case with Ramona Marek of Portland, Oregon, who began looking for a new kitten after the death of her 15-year-old Maine coon-mix. Mareks previous cats had been found in a ditch, on the side of an expressway, in an apartment complex laundry room. But this time, she and her husband searched several local shelters and rescue organizations, as well as Petfinder, with no luck. The kittens we were interested in had either been adopted or were on hold, Marek says. We went to a cat show in hopes of finding a kitten for adoption, since shelters often have a space at the shows.She didnt find a kitten, but she did learn about cat breeds that matched the traits she was looking for: longhaired, social, affectionate. They included Maine coons, Norwegian forest cats and Siberians. With no shelter kitten available yet, Marek located a Siberian breeder who had a litter of 6-week-old silver tabby kittens, to be available when they were 12 weeks old. They put down a deposit but continued looking for a kitten to adopt. None turned up, and a month later, they went home with their little prince, Tsarevich Ivan, who still rules 13 years later.Some people seek out cat breeds with reputations for being hypoallergenic, such as Siberians, Cornish rexes and sphynx. No cat is truly free of allergens, which are found not just on skin but also in saliva and urine. Individual cats may produce less of the proteins that trigger allergies than others, so spend lots of time with several different cats to make sure youre comfortable around them before acquiring one. Cats such as Persians are often in demand for their beautiful appearance and gentle nature. If there is such a thing as a couch potato cat, the Persian is it. The beautiful longhaired cats have a drawback, though: They shed. A lot. They also require daily grooming. Cat lovers who like the Persian personality but not the time required to comb them may choose an exotic, a shorthaired variety. Another consideration: Some Persians have a flat face, which can cause them to have breathing difficulties. Avoid cats with extreme characteristics. Want an active, mischievous cat who might enjoy an adventurous lifestyle? Consider an Abyssinian, but know what youre getting into. The cats are highly intelligent and can run you ragged as you try to stay one step ahead of them. Any cat, pedigreed or not, can experience health problems, but some pedigreed breeds may be prone to specific diseases or conditions, ranging from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy to periodontal disease. Be educated about potential health issues, says veterinary cardiologist Sarah Miller, DVM, who lives with a pair of Maine coons. Make sure the breeder is screening for the health problems that are inherent in the breed and that the breeder is breeding responsibly in order to keep these problems out of their lines. Buy from a breeder who puts the cats health and welfare foremost. That includes being willing to take the cat back at any point if youre unable to keep him. Buying from a breeder has other advantages. Think full-time tech support from an expert. A reputable breeder will always be there to answer questions about behavior or development. Before acquiring a pedigreed kitten, learn as much as possible about the breed by talking to breeders and other owners about activity level, health concerns and grooming requirements. Look at the kittens and both parents, if possible, and ask many questions, Marek says. For me, the experience was positive, educational and rewarding on many levels. Consider a pedigreed kitten if you want one with a certain appearance, coat type or personality. www.oaktreedentistrynaples.com 90 Cypress Way East #20 Naples FL (Across From Sams Club) 239-596-5771 $98 (A $270 VALUE) New Patient Special!

skepticism. He lived quite an eclectic life before finding his destiny on Madison Avenue, almost none of it having to do with advertising. I was a chef in Paris, a door-to-door salesman, a social worker in the Edinburgh slums, an associate of Dr. Gallup in research for the motion picture industry, an assistant to Sir William Stephenson in British Security Co-ordination, and a farmer in Pennsylv ania. So much for his credentials on paper. By the time Confessions was published, 14 years after founding Ogilvy & Mather, his agency had grown to become, as he boasted, one of the best advertising agencies in the United States, with billings of $55,000,000 a year, a payroll of $5,000,000, and offices in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Toronto. Today, that agency has become such a gargantuan chimera that it recently found it necessary to re-brand itself. In the beginning, says the corporate website, there was one Ogilvy, the company founded by David Ogilvy in 1948. Today, there is again one Ogilvy, in 83 countries and 132 offices. We are one doorway to a creative network re-founded to make brands matter in a complex, noisy, hyper-connected world. If youve watched any episodes of the late AMC series Mad Men, youll get a taste for the era in which Mr. Ogilvy thrived. But he was not just another Madison Avenue hotshot like the fictional Don Draper he was a living legend who helped transform the world of advertising, and whose influence is felt even today. Hey, he hasnt been called The King of Madison Avenue and The Father of Advertising for nothing. At his agencys founding, in what he referred to as an act of mad presumption, Mr. Ogilvy targeted five blue-chip companies he wanted as clients and eventually won over every single one of them. Confessions which he admittedly wrote partially to get more clients and to make himself better known in the business world is considered his literary masterpiece. But it was a book he published in 1983 that garners the most attention, perhaps because of its utility. Ogilvy on Advertising generously lays out its authors insights on everything from how to create better advertisements (both in print and television) to getting clients to running a successful ad agency and more. It is profusely illustrated in full color with a plethora of examples of what works in advertising and what doesnt. Its a classic that should be considered timeless but therein lies the rub.Taking up the gauntletThe rising, predominantly younger practitioners of marketing in the digital age brush off the wisdom of Mr. Ogilvy. His concepts of selling are as obsolete as the rotary telephone, they posit. This is not a new challenge, nor is it one that Mr. Ogilvy failed to refute in his lifetime. In Ogilvy on Advertising, he wrote: Most of the advertising techniques which worked when I wrote Confessions of an Advertising Man still work today. Consumers will buy products whose advertising promises them value for money, beauty, nutrition, relief from suffering, social status and so on. All over the world. In saying this, I run the risk of being denounced by the idiots who hold that any advertising technique which has been in use for more than two years is ipso facto obsolete turning a blind eye to the fact that these techniques still make the cash register ring. Still, the gauntlet had been cast down. And taking it up is Miles Young, nonexecutive chairman of Ogilvy. The world has changed dramatically, particularly in the last 15 years, and in a sense, some of the things David Ogilvy stood for came under slight attack. Not in a malicious way, but in a way that put his view of advertising on the defensive, Mr. Young said in an interview with Fast Company. That attack came from people who were strong partisans of digital, and some of it was justified and some wasnt. The part that wasnt was really to do with the view that digital replaces everything. Mr. Young used the criticisms leveled at Ogilvy on Advertising to fuel one of the most anticipated books in marketing circles this year, Ogilvy on Advertising in the Digital Age. It acts as a sort of sequel, one that attempts to apply Mr. Ogilvys wisdom of the past to the digital landscape of the present. I wanted to direct people back to Davids book because it still is the advertising bible, Mr. Young told the Huffington Post. In the 1970s, David saw an attempt to disentangle the eternal verities from the passing facts. That is even more necessary now, and the digital revolution has changed so many things in a variety of ways. The point of this book is to say that the screenplay and the script may be different, but the process is very much the same. David believed in big, simple ideas, and one of the challenges of the digital age is that people have confused the medium with the message. In elevating digital platforms as we have, weve forgotten what really matters what you say to people and how you say it to them. Mr. Youngs ambitious project has been met with mostly positive response, although it contains several weaknesses.One of a kindHis style is more clinical than Mr. Ogilvys, and this volume reads more like a textbook. There is much drily presented information about technology, including the origins of the internet. Its like reading a book on how to be a better driver, and having it start with the history of the automobile, and detailed explanations on how the vehicle works. One chapter is titled My Brain Hurts, and thats pretty much how I felt after reading not far into the book. Its not that the information in Mr. Youngs book isnt beneficial or necessary far from it; its critical to gain an understanding of how to promote goods and services in the digital marketplace. Its just that he lacks the warmth and eloquence of Mr. Ogilvy that makes the latters works not just easy to read, but a pleasurable experience, to boot. I concluded upon my first time ripping through Confessions back in the late 1980s that it was well written enough to engage even those who have no interest in the industry. Writer Michael Wolff says this in his Adweek article The First (and Last) Adman: Confessions of an Advertising Man, a book my advertising-man father gave me to read, had the same body-slamming impact on me as Hemingways Nick Adams stories. Active rather than passive, intimate rather than formal, grammatically streamlined, first person, and characterized by a set of appealing personal tics, the language seemed to break from all the blah blah youd ever read before. Not only did it make you want to write like that, but you felt you could write like that: crystalline, authoritative, oracular even, and witty. I read that book and was instantly smarter. After reading Ogilvy I was confident that I knew more than anyone (teachers, friends, parents) who had not read that book. To be honest, when I started to read Ogilvy Digital, it immediately made me eager to re-read Confessions and the original Ogilvy on Advertising. In this, Mr. Young achieved his goal. The point of this book is to persuade people to read or re-read Ogilvy on Advertising by David Ogilvy, he writes in the introduction. It is still pure, pure gold. Though the marketplace has evolved with the advent of the digital age, he argues, the essence of this business of advertising remains persistently and defiantly unchanged. So why does David Ogilvy still matter? Because those engaged in marketing can still learn from the master those immutable principles that will still, as he liked to say, make the cash register ring. Here are just some of Mr. Ogilvys eternal verities that still apply in the digital age, as only he could write them (all the quotes are his). Ignore them at your peril.Know the purpose of advertisingI do not regard advertising as entertainment or an art form, but as a medium of information. When I write an advertisement, I dont want you to tell me that you find it creative. I want you to find it so interesting that you buy the product.

A30 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYwell he speaks. But when Demosthenes spoke, they said, Let us march against Philip. Too many creatives forget that the purpose of advertising isnt to produce trendy, cutting edge, artsy or, heaven forbid, avant garde ads. The purpose is to sell the product. While you would think this is obvious, sometimes common sense isnt so common. The best way to sell is to provide consumers with the information that would entice them to make a buying decision specifically, what your product is, what it does and, most importantly, why its of benefit to them. And it has to be presented in a compelling fashion. You cannot bore people into buying your product; you can only interest them in buying it. Dont bury the copy Copy is a light on a hill, not a hidden treasure. Mr. Ogilvy vehemently opposed any layout that made the copy difficult to read (whether through design or typography) or detract from its primacy. Copy is always king. You may think that I exaggerate the importance of good typography. But do you think an advertisement can sell if nobody can read it? You cant save souls in an empty church. Get the headline right On the average, five times as many people read the headlines as read the body copy. When you have written your headline, you have spent 80 cents out of your dollar. If you havent done some selling in your headline, you have wasted 80 percent of your clients money. Theres no substitute for a good headline. It can be short (Ogilvy on Advertising includes a successful William Bernbach ad for Volkswagen that used one word), but the most effective headlines run about 11 words. A headline is what Mr. Ogilvy referred to as the ticket on the meat it can flag down a specific audience (expectant mothers, asthma, men over 35, etc.). The headlines which work best are those which promise the reader a benefit like a whiter wash, more miles per gallon, freedom from pimples, fewer cavities. Without research, youre in the dark We prefer the discipline of knowledge to the anarchy of ignorance. We pursue knowledge the way a pig pursues truffles. A blind pig can sometimes find truffles, but it helps to know that they grow in oak forests. Having worked for Gallup, Mr. Ogilvy appreciated the value of research. He was a lone early adopter of direct mail (he called it his first love and secret weapon), and emphatically advocated that industrys techniques, not only for writing copy, but also for measuring results. He wanted to know what worked and what didnt. How else are you going to know how and where to spend your advertising dollars most effectively? Advertising people who ignore research are as dangerous as generals who ignore decodes of enemy signals. Mr. Ogilvy was also dedicated to researching everything available about the product. This is admittedly tedious, but it produced nuggets of gold that could not be discovered any other way. One of Mr. Ogilvys most successful ads for Rolls-Royce carried the compelling headline, At sixty miles an hour, the loudest noise comes form the electric clock. It was a direct quote from an engineer, buried in a technical document he was poring through. Respect the consumer The consumer is not a moron. She is your wife. Dont insult her intelligence. Mr. Ogilvy believed not only in the intellect of average consumers, but also respected them enough to be truthful in his advertising. For this reason, he chose only clients that would reflect well on his agency and was not opposed to firing even top-notch clients who committed unforgiveable faux pas. Never write an advertisement which you wouldnt want your family to read. You wouldnt tell lies to your own wife. Dont tell them to mine. Education trumps presumption With such massive amounts of accumulated knowledge available, and tons of research on what makes advertising effective, Mr. Ogilvy had little tolerance for those who showed up to the table with nothing but ignorance and intuition. If you dont know what is proven to work and what is proven not to how can you possible create good advertising? I asked an indifferent copywriter what books he had read about advertising. He told me that he had not read any; he preferred to rely on his own intuition. Suppose, I asked, our gallbladder has to be removed this evening. Will you choose a surgeon who has read some books on anatomy and knows where to find your gallbladder, or a surgeon who relies on his intuition? Why should our clients be expected to bet millions of dollars on your intuition? Copy should always be personal Do not address your readers as though they were gathered together in a stadium. When people read your copy, they are alone. Pretend you are writing to each of them a letter on behalf of your client. This personal touch is what makes Confessions and Ogilvy on Advertising so engaging and entertaining to read. There is a real sense that the author is addressing you as an individual. When you sit down to write your body copy, pretend that you are talking to the woman on your right at a diner party. She has asked you, I am thinking of buying a new car. Which would you recommend? Write your copy as if you were answering that question. Bad ads can sink you The notion that bad publicity is better than no publicity, or that bad advertising is better than no advertising, is a crock pure and simple. The wrong advertising can actually reduce sales of a product. Consider the debacle of the disturbing plastic-headed Burger King mascot of the late 2000s. It was abruptly retired in 2011 because it cost the company in sales not to mention it made Time magazines list of the top 10 creepiest product mascots. Dont repeat existing mistakes Advertising agencies still waste their clients money repeating the same mistakes. I recently counted 49 advertisements set in reverse type (white type on black background) in one issue of a German magazine, long years after research demonstrated that reverse is difficult to read. During a ten-hour train ride, I read the ads in three magazines. Most of them violated elementary principles which were discovered in years gone by. The copywriters and art directors who created them are ignorant amateurs. What is the reason for their failure to study experience? Are they afraid that knowledge would impose some discipline on them or expose their incompetence? These snippets of Mr. Ogilvys wisdom are just scratching the surface of the corpus of knowledge provided in the original Ogilvy on Advertising. Those who have anything to do with their organizations marketing are doing themselves a disservice by not reading this classic and then reading it again. In the Copyblogger article 3 Timeless Lessons from the Father of Advertising, writer Beth Haden says, Ogilvys work continues to inspire us, and his worldfamous marketing campaigns live on. But Mr. Ogilvys work provides more than inspiration. It still offers us direction, wisdom and insight based on the benefits of copious amounts of research and a peerless track record of success. Oh and one more thing. It gives us a multitude of techniques that, applied correctly to digital media, are guaranteed to make the cash register ring. >> Ogilvy on Advertising by David Ogilvy 1983 Vintage (paperback, rst edition published 1985) 224 pages List price: $27.50 >> Confessions of an Advertising Man by David Ogilvy 1963 Southbank Publishing (revised edition 2012) 192 pages List price: $19.95 COURTESY PHOTODavid Ogilvy.

All major regions saw no gain in contract activity last month. The Pending Home Sales Index, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, declined 1.3 percent to 106.4 in April from an upwardly revised 107.8 in March. With last months decrease, the index is down on an annualized basis (2.1 percent) for the fourth straight month. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said the housing market this spring is hindered because of severe housing shortages in much of the country. Pending sales slipped in April and continued to stay within the same narrow range with little signs of breaking out, he said. Feedback from Realtors, as well as the underlying sales data, reveal that the demand for buying a home is very robust.

The unfortunate reality for many home shoppers is that reaching the market will remain challenging if supply stays at these dire levels. Heading into the summer months, if low supply and swift price growth were not enough of a headwind for the housing market, Mr. Yun believes that rising mortgage rates and gas prices could lead to hesitation among some wouldbe buyers. The combination of paying extra at the pump, while also needing to save more for a down payment because of higher rates and home prices, may weigh on the psyche of those looking to buy, he said. For now, the economy is very healthy, job growth is holding steady and wages are slowly rising. However, it all comes down to overall supply. If more new and existing homes are listed for sale, it would allow home prices to moderate enough to stave off inflationary pressures and higher rates. Mr. Yun still forecasts for existing-home sales in 2018 to increase 0.5 percent to 5.54 million up from 5.51 million in 2017. The national median existinghome price is expected to increase around 5.1 percent. In 2017, existing sales increased 1.1 percent and prices rose 5.7 percent. The PHSI in the Northeast remained at 90.6 in April, and is 2.1 percent below a year ago. In the Midwest the index decreased 3.2 percent to 98.5 in April, and is 5.1 percent lower than April 2017. Pending home sales in the South declined 1.0 percent to an index of 127.3 in April, but is still 2.7 percent higher than last April. The index in the West inched backward 0.4 percent in April to 94.4, and is 4.6 percent below a year ago. SALESFrom page 1
B4 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYUnprecedented contract conversions at Rontos Eleven Eleven CentralThe Ronto Group reported it has converted 83% of the reservations for Phase I residences at its new Eleven Eleven Central community to binding sales contracts worth nearly $22 million. Conversion of additional reservations is currently in process. Eleven Eleven Central is a new walkable/bikeable, access-controlled community to be built on Central Avenue between 10th Street and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples. Permitting for Phase I construction is underway. Ronto anticipates beginning construction by the end of this year. Phase I features 62 residences showcasing five twobedroom, two-bedroom plus den, and three-bedroom open-concept floor plans ranging from 1,407 to 2,297 square feet of total living space, including covered outdoor balconies. Pre-construction pricing starts in the mid-$500s. The excitement Eleven Eleven Central has generated has been gratifying, said Ronto Group president Anthony Solomon. Frankly, the contract conversion rate has been historic. It is a reflection of the confidence our homebuyers have in us and in the value of our product. That is exciting to all of us. Our design intention was to provide the things that make Naples so popular sun, fun, and luxury. Eleven Eleven Centrals location will put residents right in the middle of downtowns action and excitement. The beach, galleries, restaurants, and shopping are all within easy walking distance. Our residents will also enjoy all the sun, fun, and luxury they want right at home. No other community or residential building in Old Naples offers the level of amenities included at Eleven Eleven Central. Homebuyers no longer need to choose between a downtown location or an amenity-rich master planned community lifestyle. Now they can have both. Forty-something professionals, empty nesters, and retirees have been captivated by Eleven Eleven Centrals walkable lifestyle and Phase I floor plan choices. Each floor plan includes an outdoor balcony with northern exposure views of the communitys spectacular amenity courtyard or southern exposure views of the surrounding neighborhood. Just nine southern facing residences remain available. Two of the floor plans, the 1,265 square feet under air, two-bedroom Atlantic plan and the 1,476 square feet under air, twobedroom Avalon plan, are sold out. Northern exposure and two southern exposure Belair residences are available. The remaining southern exposure Belair units are priced at $690,000 and $740,000. With a total of 1,741 square feet of living space and 1,561 square feet under air, the Belair floor plan includes a large great room that opens to a covered balcony, a comfortable dining area, and an island kitchen. The plan also includes two bedrooms, two full-baths, and a den. Two walk-in closets are featured in the owners suite. Northern and southern facing Collins residences base-priced at $785,000 are available, including seven offering a southern neighborhood view. The twobedroom plus den, two-and-a-half bath Collins floor plan includes a total of 1,947 total square feet of living space with 1,757 square feet under air. The spacious living area opens to a covered balcony and includes a great room, dining area, and island kitchen. The owners suite features two walk-in closets, a bath with his and hers vanities, and a bedroom with a sitting area. Base-priced at $1,020,000, the northern facing three-bedroom, three-and-ahalf bath Duval plan features a total of 2,297 square feet of living space with 2,045 square feet under air. Each of the guest bedrooms include private baths and one of the guest bedrooms opens to the covered balcony. Two walkin closets are included in the owners suite. The living area features a great room, dining area, and an island kitchen wrapped by perimeter cabinetry and countertops. The great room and dining area open to the covered balcony. Eleven Eleven Central residents will enjoy access to downtown Naples attractions, and to the new eateries, galleries, and specialty shops in the burgeoning Design District. Naples beach is threequarters of a mile from the community via the sidewalks and bike lanes on Central Avenue, or a short ride on the planned community beach shuttle. Eleven Eleven Centrals location provides access to Baker Park and the Gordon River Pedestrian Bridge and Boardwalk on the east side of Goodlette-Frank Road that connects Central Avenue and downtown Naples to the Gordon River Greenway. Scheduled for completion in Phase I, the communitys approximately 60,000 square feet courtyard amenity deck will feature a 3,500 square feet resort style pool with a beach entry and two lap lanes, chaise lounges and poolside tables, two spas, outdoor showers, poolside cabanas, grills, a cabana bar and grilling area with large screen televisions, fire pits with built-in seating areas, a hammock lawn, a life-sized outdoor chess set, a yoga stretching area, and bocce ball courts. The outdoor amenities will be expanded during Phase II to include a 20,400-square foot Courtyard Park with park benches, a putting green, a yoga lawn, and fenced dog runs. Eleven Eleven Central will invite residents to enjoy a nearly 4,000-square foot clubroom with a bar, billiards tables, card tables, large screen televisions, and a catering kitchen adjacent to an outdoor grill and fire pit. A fitness center also measuring nearly 4,000-square feet will include a stretching and functional movement area, state-of-the-art exercise equipment, massage rooms, and rest rooms. Six guest suites will be provided for visiting friends and family members. Resident storage areas and bike storage areas are included. Two downtown Naples sales centers represent Eleven Eleven Central and Rontos Naples Square community, one located at 100 Goodlette-Frank Road South, the other in unit 101 of the Naples Square Phase I building at 1030 3rd Avenue South.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 REAL ESTATE B19Second tower under construction at Kalea BayClub amenity center popular with residentsJust months after the successful sell out and move-ins of all developer units in Kalea Bays first tower, construction on the second tower in the gated, luxury highrise community located in North Naples is well underway. Weve had record-breaking sales in Tower 200 during the first quarter of 2018, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Kalea Bay. To be more specific, from January to May we sold 24 residences in Tower 200 totaling more than $52 million. However, since launching sales in July 2017, we have sold more than 50 percent of all residences in the tower for a total of $120 million. Like its predecessor, Tower 200 is also 22-stories with 120 residences. 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 are 4-bedroom/4.5 bath plans with 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans 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 glassenclosed 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 floorto-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. Like the first tower, Tower 200 will also have rooftop amenities including a pool, open-air fitness center and a sky lounge.Prices in Tower 200 begin at $1.4 million.The residents of the first tower, along with their family members and friends, are already enjoying the communitys Club amenity center. It opened in early January and is now the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. The 88,000-square-foot club amenity center 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. She added, Purchasers in Tower 200 can start using the club and its amenities the day they sign their contracts, affording them an unprecedented opportunity to utilize this amazing $25 million world-class amenity center. 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, bistro, a fitness center, and lakeside fire pit. 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 and lounge chairs 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 can be reserved by members to accommodate overnight guests and are located on property. 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.

Overall closed sales were remarkable with 1,024 closed sales during May 2018 compared to 1,027 closed sales in May 2017. Closed sales in May 2018 were higher than all months following May 2017. May also saw inventory levels continue to stabilize, according to the May 2018 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of Realtors, which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). In 2017, Mays sales increased 23 percent over sales in May 2016, said Phil Wood, president of John R. Wood Properties. The fact that we are keeping the same pace this year and inventory is holding steady is good news as we move into summer. Closed sales of properties in the $300,000 to $500,000 price category during May increased 21 percent over May 2017, while closed sales in the $300,000 and below price category were just one sale short of the number of closed sales in May 2017. There was very good news for buyers in the report as Mays overall median closed price dropped 5 percent to $337,000 from $355,000 in May 2017. Moreover, the overall median closed price for homes priced above $500,000 decreased 14 percent to $507,000 from $590,000 in May 2017. On the high-end side of the market, despite an 11 percent increase in median closed prices, pending sales of properties in the $2 million and above price category increased 23 percent in May 2018 compared to May 2017. We havent seen inventory levels in May this high since 2013, said Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty, Inc. I was concerned that the low end of the market would start shrinking after season, but the May report showed inventory increased 6 percent for homes under $300,000. Overall inventory in May rose by 15 properties compared to May 2017. The report also showed inventory rose in May for both single family homes and condominiums priced below $500,000, which accounted for 58 percent of the available market in Collier County at the end of the month.

C17 Naples reality show contestant reflects on new experienceIts been a few short weeks since Trent Jespersen got booted to the curb on national television when The Bachelorette star Becca K ufrin sent him packing in the second episode of the show, which airs on ABC. The show pits 28 hopeful bachelors against one another as they vie for the heart of one girl through progressively challenging, awe-inspiring and expensive dates. But, the 28-year-old Naples model and real estate agent seems to have bounced back. Florida Weekly talked to him after his final episode of the reality TV show aired June 4. Q: So youre originally from Iowa. How did you end up in Naples before retirement? A: I moved to Naples because my exgirlfriend and I just wanted to move to a random place. I had friends that lived here, but there was no real reason. We got here in 2012 and I liked the serenity of the place. The beaches are some of the best in the country. Ive been here 6 years, and Im moving up to Orlando now where theres more of a market in terms of real estate and modeling, too.

LONGEST TRACK RECORD OF FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY SUCCESS IN COLLIER COUNTY COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS email@example.com Ive never told my mother this, but it bothered me when she insisted on drinking coffee out of a mug at supper. I mean, my grandparents were happy to sip theirs from the cups and saucers that matched Grandmas Noritake dinnerware Grandpa took his coffee black, thank you very much. Grandma preferred hers with a spoonful of sugar from the matching sugar bowl. And my mom? Sugar from the aforementioned sugar bowl and a splash from the can of Carnation milk. Oh, well. Id have at least poured it into the cream pitcher. She insisted that her coffee stayed warmer in the mug, and she didnt have to get up as often to refill it, either. After all, that kitchen was hot, especially in the days before central air conditioning. For some reason, a properly set table, with matching accessories, no less, was important to me. After all, a chubby 8-year-old boy needed something over which he had some control, something that made life in early 1970s Florida appear to be at least somewhat refined. And that need probably is part of what led to my love of china, silver and glassware, and, by extension, antiques. But it goes beyond patterns and labels and degrees of quality. Its all about the memories. I close my eyes and look back at the tables of yore. Grandpa sat at the north of the table. Grandma was to his right, at the west, in the seat nearest the kitchen. I generally sat next to her. If he was in town, my dad sat at the south end, and my mom sat on the east. My baby brother sat in his high chair between them, and my sister sat to my moms right. Perhaps thats why I kept the Noritake china maybe even that mismatched mug. After all, with one clink of a dish, Im seated in that Fort Myers dining room again. All may not have been right with the world, but very nearly everyone who mattered was there. And those who are gone are missed. Bought: T ag sale by Kofski Antiques, 5 501 Geor gia Ave., West Palm Beach; 561-585-1976 or www.kofski.com. Paid: $30 The Skinny: Weve all seen Lenox china, sold everywhere from TJ Maxx and Marshalls to Bloomingdales and beyond. Most of what we see bears a templated design created from a decal. There might be a bit of hand-embellishment, but one plate, or cup, or saucer is nearly identical to every other of that particular pattern. This set of diminutive cups and saucers was painted by the artist Jan Nosek, who worked for Lenox in two key periods 1903-1908 and 1939-1954. During his early years, Lenox was noted for its handpainted, one-of-akind wares. These cups and saucers date from Noseks second stint at Lenox, and you can see each dainty brushstroke on the pears, apples, oranges, cherries, peaches and plums that grace them. These will be perfect for serving espresso, once I finally get around to hosting a dinner party. Or, even better, a palate-cleansing sorbet. Whatever they whet my appetite for more.

There were trinket boxes covered in tiny shells, counter bells made with mother-of-pearl shells put together into a container and nautilus shells used as part of cleverly shaped lamps that held special light bulbs. Large conch shells were kept whole as decorations, often with the addition of a cameo carved into part of the shell. During the late 1800s, glassmakers adapted the shell shape to their medium, making shells of colored glass and decorating with enamel paint or placing them in elaborate metal frames. A shell-shaped cranberry glass watch holder with enameled decorations was auctioned recently. The almost egg-shaped glass was held in a gilt metal frame with leaves, flowers and a bird finial. It was lined with padded fabric to protect the watch. The unusual piece, probably American, sold for $708 at a Conestoga auction in Pennsylv ania. A pocket watch kept in a holder on a table near the bed served as a bedroom clock. Q: My mother gave me a small box with five 3-inch dolls inside. It says on the top of the box: Best Maid Quintuplets, No. 63077 and Made in Japan. Is this of any value? A: The Dionne quintuplets Yvonne, Annette, Cecile, Emilie and Marie born in Canada on May 28, 1934, were the first quintuplets to survive infancy. When they were 4 months old, they became wards of the Canadian government and were put under the guardianship of the doctor who delivered them. The girls lived in the doctors nursery and became a major tourist attraction. They returned to live with their family in 1943. Thousands of special dolls and souvenirs were made picturing the quints at different ages. Annette and Cecile are still alive. The value of your dolls is about $20.

GUEST COMMENTARYOn eating local and how Anthony Bourdain made that importantThere have been thousands of words written about Anthony Bourdain, both during his years in the culinary spotlight, when he seemed larger than life, and in the past couple of weeks, since he proved his wasnt by dying at his own hand. I never had the opportunity to meet this brilliant force of nature, but I felt a kinship with him. Turns out, we were born five days apart. I turned 62 on Wednesday. He would have done so this coming Monday. We both loved food, the food industry, the people involved and writing and talking about the many fascinating experiences with which they enrich our lives. If you havent read it, I recommend buying your own copy of Mr. Bourdains Kitchen Confidential. One romp through the back of the house with the irrepressible bad boy chef he was then wont be enough. And the book is a startling contrast to the man he became: the social activist, the world traveler, the loving dad, the chef who was willing to stand back and allow those from wildly different cultures to savor their moments of fame as they awakened us to their foods and customs. No standing about gaping at the usual tourist traps for him. No, unless you were communing with the people, eating what they ate, drinking what they drank, swapping stories and forging friendships, it didnt count. That he should leave us now, when our own country seems so segmented, so mistrustful of and disinterested in, other cultures and what they have to offer us, seems especially sad. We need him now more than ever. I dont know about you, but I am grateful that Netflix is keeping his show on for a while so we can continue to spend some time getting our cultural and culinary lessons from a man who delivered both with incomparable style and heart. We will miss him. But we can never forget him. karenFELDMANcuisine@floridaweekly.com BOURDAIN
C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Chief among them is the groups founder, chef and restaurateur Tony Ridgway, who just finished his 47th season in Naples.Owner of Ridgway Bar & Grill, Tonys off Third, Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar and Sukies Wine Shop with long-time business partner Sukie Honeycutt, Mr. Ridgway says that he didnt do summer specials until a few years back when the recession hit. But, aside from the cash flow issue, he realized we were bored to tears in the restaurant. We made a decision more from the standpoint that we needed more bodies in here so we didnt go crazy. So Ridgways offers two summer specials, both two-course meals, one for $29 and another for $39. Were discounting two courses by 30 to 35 percent over a la carte, he says. Were not giving it away, but the $29 menu is a very good value and the $39 menu is an extremely good value. Theres no dessert included as most people dont want that during the summer, he says, and, if they do, they can add it. Theyre happy, were happy, the servers are happy, the kitchen has more hours and all of us are less bored, Mr. Ridgway says. Its great for customers now and in the fall because the staff stays on through the summer, is able to make a living and is still in place come October.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 Introducing...The new Grady-White 23 Twins! The pinnacle of safety, engineering, and luxury and built Grady Tough! Backed up with Naples Boat Marts award-winning service In Stock Now! ON THE WATERGrady White means freedom to enjoy variety of activities on the water BY GLENN MILLERFlorida Weekly CorrespondentScott Latham loves the freedom of Southwest Florida waters that has opened up to him with Grady White boats. Last fall the Naples resident purchased his second Grady White, a Freedom 307. Many things appealed to him about a Grady White. He knew from reputation and experience that a Grady White is the epitome of boating excellence. He didnt at first, though, realize the significance of the boats name: Freedom. I never thought of it, Mr. Latham said. You get to do what you want to do on the water. Their first Grady White allowed Mr. Latham and his wife, Kathy, to learn more about the water, the ports-of-call, the culture, history, sunsets and people of this corner of Florida. We love spending time on the water and try to get out weekly, either to grab lunch on Marco or Fort Myers, spend a little time on Keewaydin Island or run out 30 miles in the gulf to try our luck at fishing, Mr. Latham, a retired GE plant manager from Louisville, Ky., wrote in an email to Florida Weekly. We are also members of the Naples Cruise Club and Naples Grady White Owners, which keeps us busy. The couples first overnight boating trip was to Useppa Island, and their most recent trip was to Marathon in the Keys. The size and design of the Freedom 307 allows them to do whatever activity they prefer: beach, travel or fish. The Grady White story goes back nearly 60 years, to 1959 w hen the company was formed. The plant is in Greenville, N.C. My first Grady, I waited almost a year before the model I wanted became available on the used market, Mr. Latham wrote in his email. It was a 27-foot dual console. I loved it, he added, but as happens with most boaters, bigger and newer models caught his eye. The Freedom 307 is 30 feet long. Mr. Latham watched the used market for one for six months before deciding to purchase a brand new 2018 model in May 2017. Heres how the Grady White website describes the model: creating a new category of big, saltwater tough coastal cruiser/family fishing boats. The Freedom 307 is a roomy, versatile, great performing inshore or offshore cruiser with amenities and comfort to spare. Seating is second to none. Sounds ideal for the Lathams and their friends and family, which includes two grown children and three grandchildren.Mr. Latham had the opportunity to visit the Grady White plant as his second boat was being built. I was extremely impressed, which is a bit surprising since my career centered on manufacturing plants, he wrote. It was very obvious the investment the company makes in developing its employees, both on a personal and professional level, as well as the commitment of the Grady White workforce to build the highest quality boat.A Grady White, Mr. Latham knows, is not just a boat. It feels good when asked by other boaters, What boat do you own? and you can say a Grady. The appeal and reputation are so strong that Grady White clubs have formed in 14 states, from Connecticut to Washington to Texas and Florida. There are at least eight such clubs in the Sunshine State, including one in each coastal Southwest Florida county: Naples in Collier County, Fort Myers in Lee County and Port Charlotte in Charlotte County. One of Mr. Lathams favorite outings aboard his Freedom 307 is for sunset on the Gulf of Mexico. He believes sunsets on the open water and away from land are even more spectacular than those viewed from a beach.Now thats freedom: out on the water in a dual-console Grady White Freedom 307, watching the sun disappear below the horizon while surrounded by family.

C8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYEscape city stress with a visit to Bok Tower Gardens BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comFrom its 205-foot Gothic bell tower stretching out of the highest point on the Florida peninsula to its garden walk and flowering shrubs, Bok Tower Gardens is a glorious place to relax and get away from city noise and stress. The National Historic Landmark in Central Floridas rolling hills makes a good day trip and is a perfect place to take visiting relatives and friends. Thats what I did early this year, when my brother, sister and sister-in-law came down from Wisconsin. We all enjoyed the gorgeous gardens, walking the nature trails, listening to the Singing Tower carillon and having lunch alfresco in the Blue Palmetto Caf. My sister-in-law, a florist, knew almost all the names of the flowers. But even those of us who did not (me) were in luck because each type of flower blooming the day we visited was on a display and identified outside the welcome center bromeliads, gardenias, azaleas, camillas, firecracker plant, water willow, Cracker rose, or Louis Philippe, and summer snapdragons among the mix. Bok Tower Gardens was founded by Edward W. Bok, an immigrant from the Netherlands, in 1929. Mr. Bok was only 6 when he arrived in the U.S. He became a publisher, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, humanitarian and an advocate of the environment and for world peace. His grandmother told him to make the world a bit better or more beautiful because you have lived in it. And he paid attention to what his grandmother said. His family lived in Pennsylv ania, but wintered near Lake Wales, which is where Mr. Bok became enchanted with the beauty and magnificent views from Iron Mountain, which stands 298 feet above sea level. He loved watching the sunset from the top of the mountain. In awe of what he saw, Mr. Bok wanted to create a place that would touch the soul with its beauty and quiet. To that end, he bought the hilltop land and transformed it into lush gardens with a Singing Tower housing a 60-bell carillon. It was, Mr. Bok said, his token of appreciation for all the opportunities he had been given. Famous landscape architect Frederick L. Olmsted was commissioned to turn the arid sandhill into what Mr. Bok predicted would be a spot of beauty second to none in the country. After spending a year digging trenches, installing water pipes for irrigation and bringing in thousands of truckloads of rich black soil, trees, bushes and flowers were planted to entice migrating birds. Today there are more than 126 species of birds (and a lot of squirrels) at Bok. The gardens Reflection Pool, a favorite spot for visitors, captures the reflection of the tower and is one of the most memorable images guest see. The Singing Tower, designed by architect Milton B. Medary (who designed the Washington Memorial Chapel at Valley Forge) and sculpted by Lee Lawrie, houses a 60-bell carillon. Concerts are given daily at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The sculptures and grille work on the tower features birds and wildlife, from herons and eagles to foxes and storks. One of my favorite parts of the tower is the Great Brass Door, which depicts the Book of Genesis, beginning with the creation of light and ending with Adam and Eve being tossed out of the Garden of Eden. It is absolutely gorgeous! The 7-acre garden also includes the 20-room Pinewood Estate, a Mediterranean-style mansion. Built in the early 1930s for Charles Austin Buck, a Bethlehem Steel vice president, Pinewood also is open for tours and is especially stunning when decorated for the holiday season in December.But no need to wait for Christmas to go. Every day is a good day to soak up the beauty and serenity of Bok Tower Gardens.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYInsane or sanctified? The Studio Players bring Agnes of God to the stageAgnes of God is a tough sell, to be sure. A play about a murdered newborn and a woman who was sexually and verbally abused as a child doesnt exactly sound like a fun night at the theater. Not only that, but theres almost non-stop discussion about theology and psychology. The play was first staged almost 40 years ago. It played on Broadway in 1982, and a film version was released in 1985. Its a challenging play for a community theater to put on. Even an Equity theater would think twice about staging it, though theres talk of a possible Broadway revival. In more professional hands, it might be more gripping, though I suspect it hasnt held up well over the decades. It was highly popular when it first came out there was even a national tour but times have changed. So many appalling things have happened since then that were jaded. Or perhaps shellshocked. Agnes of God was inspired by the real-life incident of a 36-year-old nun giving birth at her convent in upstate New York. Her baby was found dead, in the wastepaper basket in her room. Playwright John Pielmeir read the news story and then wrote about a 21-year-old novice nun who is found unconscious in her room with a dead newborn in the wastebasket. She claims she doesnt remember anything. She is an innocent, ignorant of the ways of the world. She thinks babies well, at least the good ones are created by angels. The play revolves around three women: Agnes, the novitiate (Kathleen Thomas in The Studio Players production), her Mother Superior (Mary Jane Disco) and the court-appointed psychiatrist, Dr. Martha Livingston (Rachel Borwein). Dr. Livingston is supposed to make a determination as to whether Agnes is sane or not. If declared insane, shell be sent to an institution; if found sane, shell be sent to prison. Neither option seems appealing to the doctor or to the Mother Superior. One weakness of this play is that its mostly all talk; the important action takes place off-stage. Director Paula Keenan has not given this production enough highs and lows, enough drama. (We learn from the playbill that the play has a personal appeal to her; she was educated Catholic and also played the role of the psychiatrist in a production several years ago.) Agnes of God needs a strong title character who will leave us guessing and thinking, at times: perhaps it was an immaculate conception. (But theologically, that doesnt make sense. According to the Christian faith, one already took place; wouldnt another also make this baby God, a younger half-brother to Jesus? And wouldnt that mean that this novitiate nun has just murdered God?) Agnes must also be otherworldly, mystical. Ms. Thomas has a pretty singing voice, but I never felt she was ethereal. I never got shivers down my spine. Ms. Borwein, as the psychiatrist, looks very much like a young Jane Fonda and has her mannerisms. (Ms. Fonda played the role in the movie version.) She has some moments, particularly during her monologues when shes directly addressing the audience, especially at the plays opening and closing. Her character is a lapsed Catholic with loads of anger and resentment toward the Church. She, like Agnes, also has mother issues. But when the doctor tells Agnes she is past the age of being able to bear a child, Ms. Borwein seems decades too young for the role. Ms. Disco, as the Mother Superior, is a likeable character much of the time, displaying a sly sense of humor. At one point, she and Dr. Livingston, a chain smoker, have a conversation about the saints and what brands they might have smoked. Yet, like those who protect abusive priests, she too seems willing to protect the institution and its reputation even if it means harm to an individual. The Studio Players set is minimalist: two chairs, and a desk and another chair. The lighting is intrusive, swinging wildly across the stage throughout the performance, as if searching for the actor or actors who should be in its spotlight. This happened repeatedly. The music played before the play begins and at intermission is intriguing, setting the scene well: modern pop songs sung as if by chanting monks. The band, Gregorian, sings songs such as Losing My Religion, Wonderwall, Shout and Imagine. (The latter provided some real cognitive dissonance, as the singers chanted, monk-like, Imagine theres no heaven.) Agnes of God provides more questions than answers: Where is the line between fervent religious belief and insanity? Is the desire to suffer holy, or a mental illness? How can one have a healthy faith? And can miracles happen in our day and age? Would we recognize them if they did? nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOKathleen Thomas in Agnes of God presented by The Sudio Players.

What else have you appeared in? A: Im doing a shoot tomorrow for a commercial for Publix. Ive done a lot of ads for places like Ashley Furniture, Lees, a lot of resorts. Im just trying to make the best of a temporary thing. Q: Why did you apply for the show? A: Well, my ex and I broke up, and two weeks later I was shooting an application submission for the show. Then they asked for more photos because they were interested. The next thing you know, its the real deal. They flew to Fort Lauderdale to see me. I did a 25-minute bio tape, and then they flew me out to Los Angeles. Q: That sounds really involved. What was the process like? A: It took three months. It was me and 49 other guys, narrowed down from 5,000. Then they got it from about 49 to 28. They check your blood, check you for STDs, they put you through a psychological evaluation and ask you this 500-question personality test. I had never done anything like it, and Im all about new experiences. Q: How do you feel you were portrayed on the show? A: In that last episode, there was a lot they didnt show. I had one-on-one time with Becca and they never showed that. It was kind of upsetting. I texted one of the producers. It was me and Becca just hanging around the pool doing some stupid stuff. I wrestled a fake alligator float, because I used to be an alligator wrestler as a 19-year-old. It was fun, you know. She kissed me. Q: Why do you think you got cut from the episode? A: I was one of the more popular guys in the house, I think. I got along with everyone and I think the show is more focused on drama. I have a lot of memories with the guys though. We only filmed for two and a half weeks but I text them every day. Q: Have you had any crazy moments with fans yet who recognize you? A: I had one girl send me a message on Instagram and sing to me. I was in the parking lot the other day and this guy was like, Dude, youre the guy on The Bachelorette. I have a little bit of a fan base.

Take this deal where South wins the opening club lead with the king and, after digesting the 5-0 split in the suit, returns the queen of diamonds. If West knows his way around a bridge table, he ducks and allows declarer to win the trick. (If West takes the queen with the ace, South cannot be stopped from eventually scoring two diamond tricks and the contract.) When the queen holds, South plays another diamond, and West ducks again. Declarer now has a tough decision to make because he does not know where the ace and jack are located. If he guesses wrong, he goes down. Presenting declarer with such guesses is part of the strategy of defense, and any defender who misses such opportunities is selling himself short. This having been said, however, the fact is that if declarer plays correctly, he makes the contract regardless of where the ace and jack of diamonds are situated. All he has to do is to lead the four of diamonds to dummys eight at trick two. This guarantees at least two diamond tricks against any lie of the cards. If the eight wins, a low diamond to the queen produces a second diamond trick. If the eight loses to the jack, South later overtakes his queen with the king to assure two diamond tricks. All roads lead to Rome provided South has the presence of mind to play the diamond four to the eight at trick two. This eliminates any chance of going wrong later in the play.

FILM CAPSULESDeadpool 2 (Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Julian Dennison) After a horrible personal tragedy, Deadpool (Reynolds) tries to protect a young mutant (Dennison) from a futuristic soldier (Brolin) out to kill the kid. Brash and meta wit are on satisfyingly full display amidst all the action, but an underdeveloped villain makes it a weaker film than the 2016 original. Rated R.Godard, Mon Amour (Louis Garrel, Stacy Martin, Berenice Bejo) The late-1960s personal life of famed French director Jean-Luc Godard (Garrel), including his marriage to a young actress (Martin) and social activism, is chronicled in this nudity-filled drama. Director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) has crafted the most unflattering homage to a great director that one could imagine, to the point that Godard is easily the least likeable character in the film. As a result, theres not much to enjoy. Rated R.RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Gloria Steinem, Bill Clinton) The life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes center stage in this revealing tell-all documentary. We learn about RBG both personally and professionally, and by the end its hard to not have immense respect for her accomplishments. Rated PG. Avengers: Infinity War (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin) The Avengers and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) unite when villainous Thanos (Brolin) tries to take over the galaxy. Be prepared for anything, MCU fans, and rest assured the action, effects, and humor are all top notch. Rated PG-13.I Feel Pretty (Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Tom Hopper) A woman with low self esteem (Schumer) bangs her head and now views herself as beautiful, though she looks the same to the rest of the world. Its got a great message and will be a great for a group of girl friends to enjoy together, but its not consistently funny for the rest of us. Rated PG-13.Truth or Dare (Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Sophia Ali) College seniors enjoy spring break in Mexico, but return to school cursed to play Truth or Dare; if they dont play, they die. Its a fun idea to put real life-or-death stakes on a game so many of us have played, but the filmmakers dont do quite enough with it to keep us entertained throughout. Rated PG-13.Beirut (Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris) A U.S. diplomat (Hamm) in early s Beirut must negotiate the release of an old friend whos been taken hostage by terrorists. Its laborious to the point that you stop caring whether the hostage, diplomat, or anyone else comes out alive. Rated R.

LATEST FILMSAmerican Animals Is it worth $10? YesFor worse, movies glamorize thievery. The bigger the heist, the more fun it is, sure, but the moral component of robbery has always been dubious. Even if stealing for a righteous cause, it still includes taking something that isnt yours. When grand thefts become entertainment (such as the Oceans movies), the characters rarely feel bad about what theyre doing. Just the opposite, in fact: Usually theyre on such a platitude about pulling it off that the consequences are rarely mentioned, let alone seriously considered. American Animals takes this notion and twists in a fascinating expos of four otherwise normal college students who steal rare books from Transylv ania University in Kentucky in 2004. These guys are not hardened criminals; aside from recreational drugs and speeding, theyve barely ever broken the law. So what would possess them to steal from the school library? Millions of dollars, if they can authenticate and sell the books, we learn. Its also clear why main planners Spencer (Barry Keoghan), an aspiring artist with little life experience to speak of, and Warren (Evan Peters), a loose cannon product of a broken home, would want to do this. Less clear are the motivations for Eric (Jared Abrahamson), who wants to join the FBI, and Chas (Blake Jenner), a fitness fanatic. Eric and Chas join the team later and seem to have a lot to lose; a bit more character development for them would have been welcome. Still, this is an intriguing cautionary tale of good kids gone bad, to the extent that they ignore their conscience telling them Stop! as the planned date of the robbery approaches. Throughout the film there are ups and downs, obstacles and the unexpected. Whats interesting is how the sense of decline and dread sets in before the heist even begins. The result, accordingly, is painful and expected. American Animals is based on a true story, and one of the ingenious elements of writer/director Bart Laytons film is the incorporation of the real Spencer, Warren, Eric and Chas in confessional interviews as they recall what happened. In some cases their recollections of events vary, but its the blending of fact and fiction thats significant here because it allows Mr. Layton to create the sense that these young men were acting outside of themselves (as if they were in a movie!) in a way they knew was wrong, yet couldnt bring themselves to stop pursuing. Seeing the real guys look back with candor and regret is also something rarely experienced in a heist movie. It feels refreshingly honest, and its inclusion gives American Animals more appeal. In one scene, Spencer and Warren rent a number of heist flicks to learn the tricks of the trade. Surely, they thought the real thing would play out like a movie, what with all the time and intricate planning they put into the process. But movies and real life are very different things, and part of the brilliance of American Animals is how well it articulates that fact. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Writer/director Bart Laytons discussions with the four guys formed the basis of the screenplay. He decided to interview the guys on camera during production, and crafted the movie around the interviews and dramatizations of the events.

Please tell me it will be back for another season! Thomas F., via emailA: It shall be back for a fourth season, which will premiere this fall on Monday nights at 8/7c on the CW. I spoke with series star Adam Tsekhman (who plays Gary Green) about it, and hes excited to get back to the set in July. Theyve created a lovely sort of egalitarian system on the set, he told me. All the actors kind of sit together; there are no egos. Everyones really sweet. Im so lucky to be a part of it. And the role is so much fun. I get to work on my comedy chops and play in these fabulous environments. Its time traveling, and every moment could mean the end for every character. And then, while thats about to happen, someone (Gary) makes the jokes. So, its really fun, goofy and amazing. Later this year, fans will get to see Adam explore his darker side when he co-stars in the feature film Dragged Across Concrete. Its about these two cops, Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson, who get sucked down into the dark criminal world to save their reputations. And I am one of those dark characters Behzad, a used-car salesman. Its very dark. Very nefarious.Q: I remember you had written about a series reboot of the cult-classic film Heathers, but I havent seen anything about it lately. Do you know whats going on? Gina R. in IndianaA: Paramount has canceled the reboot before an episode even had the chance to air on TV Land. It was originally slated to premiere in March, but that was pushed back due to the Parkland High School shootings. Then it was going to premiere in July, but the Santa Fe High School shootings happened, so Paramount scrapped it altogether. The producers are actively searching for a new home for the series. Spoiler alert: The Hollywood Reporter sources say that season two was to be set in the 1700s and revolve around Marie Antoinette with many of the key cast members returning in new roles. With season one perhaps being too triggering in our current gun climate, maybe they should just start with season two, which has a historical bent. It might make season one easier for some people to handle in the long run. Q: What can you tell me about these Legally Blonde 3 rumors Ive been hearing? Linda F., via emailA: I can tell you that it is definitely happening, with Reese Witherspoon and almost all of the original creative team on board! Its been 15 years since Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde premiered, so I cant wait to see what Elle and the crew have been up to in the interim. CELEBRITY EXTRA TSEKHMAN

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23 A portrait of the artist, Sophie Shao BY IVAN SELIGMANFLORIDA WEEKLY CORRESPONDENTCellist Sophie Shao will perform alongside noted concert pianist Milana Strezeva at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 21, at Trinity-by-the-C ove, pla ying selections by Bach, Dvorak and Chopin, as part of the Grand Piano Series. She is the winner of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and top prizes at the Rostropovich and Tchaikovsky competitions, and is renowned as a versatile and passionate artist. The New York Times has noted her performances as eloquent, powerful and The Washington Post called them deeply satisfying. Ms. Shao has made numerous recordings. At age 13, Ms. Shao enrolled at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, studying cello with David Soyer. After graduating from the Curtis Institute, she continued her cello studies with Aldo Parisot at Yale University, receiving a bachelors in religious studies from Yale College and an M.M. from the Yale School of Music, where she was enrolled as a Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow. She is on the faculty of Vassar College and plays on a cello made by Honore Derazey from 1855 once owned by Pablo Casals. Q: How did your musical career get started? A: My mom taught me piano. Then I started cello at age 6 in a public school Suzuki program and continued through elementary school. It was a big class of little kids playing cello we learned playing by ear. Compared to the piano, I preferred the sound of the strings, feeling their vibrations its so very satisfying to play cello. Early on, I got hooked on Jacqueline Du Prs magnificent recording of the Elgar Concerto, and practiced the cello more seriously. When I was 10 years old in Houston, the principal cellist offered to teach me for a few years; next was the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia at 13, and I finished at 18. Q: Did you ever think of doing anything other than cello? A: Yes, there were times when I thought of stopping, and the cello just drew me back its always been in my life. Ironically, having time away from it makes me want to play more! Its practicing and playing all the time thats difficult. Q: Whats it like to travel with a big cello? What airplane seat does it prefer aisle, middle or window? The hardest thing about playing the cello is carrying it; even with spinner wheels, the large case can get stuck. People always ask if I have to pay for a plane ticket for it. Yes, always, because cellos get damaged in the baggage hold because of inevitable impacts or temperature fluctuations. Then the cello would be both unusable for the purpose for which Im traveling with it. Damage depreciates its value, and its expensive to fix. It must sit in a window seat. It likes the view, and being in the aisle or middle seat would block people from getting out. Q: Which composers do you favor? A: The cello has an incredible standard repertoire; there are a lot of wonderful romantic pieces ranging from Beethoven and some classic Russian composers to freshly minted commissioned works. Its a really wide gamut to choose from. Bach is so really geared to me because while he puts everything in order for you, at the same time its very free form as some Bach movements are full of fantasy and allow for improvisation. Playing solo suites can feel so free. Then, theres also a degree of improvising when you play with friends, so when I play with Milana, she may have her own interpretation, so we come together it just works out as musicians resolve any differences. Q: What would you like to do in Naples? A: Well, Ill have to rehearse a bit for this and for the next concert that makes it a short stay to sightsee and explore. Ill check out the beach and take a dip in the gulf. Then Id love to try some good restaurants after the concert. Ive already been to Gatorland, so Ive got the full gator experience. I remember being so hungry while at a beach that I tried a truly fresh-cooked fish, I ate it all it was the best. Meatloaf can hide a lot of things in it. Ive even had alligator.

Oxtail, once a neglected cut, has gone mainstream. Prices have risen as word of the rich, flavorful braised meat makes the rounds-think beef bourguignon with a tropical twist. Its not a fast food to prepare Jamaican cuisine. Top Jamaican chef Damion Morgan sears the oxtails and seasons them with a mix of onions, carrots, tomato, garlic, ginger, thyme, allspice, with a touch of cayenne heat, then braises them low and slow for hours. The flavors mingle and the sauce is reduced to a luscious stew consistency. Poured over rice and peas (red beans, to some), or plain rice or cabbage with a side of fried plantains; youre ready for a truly Jamaican feast you can add a rich hot sauce if youd like. One More Thing: The staff, with co-owners Shishana and Rogen Forbes, is super warm and friendly youll chat and not want to leave. You must try the flavorful Jerk chicken or oh-sotender pork, curry goat, fried chicken and a crisp beef or cheese-beef patty. Portion sizes are very generous. Check out the lunchtime specials if you see escovitch fish (fried red snapper) then go for that. Pair your meal with a glass of Vitamalt, coconut water, sweetly tart grapefruit Ting or Tropical Rhythms pineapple-guava juice blend, and everythings gonna be all right. Ivan Seligman

The wheat protein they use is chewy and substantial and not at all tofu-life, although some dishes contain that as well. Fresh vegetables and flavorful sauces bring life to this cuisine. Start with some pot stickers and move on to hot and sour soup, a Thai curry bowl, Mongolian wonder or sesame basil eggplant. Then try the cheesecake, which has no cheese, but has the taste and texture of it. 2ORGANICALLY TWISTED 13040 Livingston Road, Naples; 302-8669; www.organicallytwisted.comIt was only natural that what began as a food truck would morph into a storefront with its fresh, locally sourced dishes. Theres the raw kelp noodle bowl with sweet-spicy ginger sauce over mixed greens; walnut tacos with corn tortillas, black bean salsa, shredded cabbage, lime and a side salad; curried chicken salad with veggies and a grilled nut cheese and avocado sandwich as standard features. Specials make each days offerings even more interesting.3TRUE FOOD KITCHEN Waterside Shops, 5375 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 431-4580; www.truefoodkitchen.comWhile not all vegetarian, this bastion of healthy dining offers a wealth of vegan and vegetarian options. In fact, even if you enjoy meat, you might opt to skip it with so many great meatless dishes from which to choose. Im hooked on the charred cauliflower (yes, really), with harissa tahini, medjool dates, mint, dill and pistachio. The grilled artichoke and pesto pizza, Mediterranean quinoa, spring asparagus toast and spicy panang curry with tofu are worthy contenders as well. Try some honey lemonade or sparkling honeydew on the side or, if its been one of those days, a basil cucumber Collins might cure what ails you. CUISINE
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 21-27, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CHEF Q&AMeet Kareems Lebanese Kitchen chef and owner, Rachid EidoNaples seems to be in the grip of Middle Eastern mania with all manner of Near East restaurants popping up. At the center is the Kareems Lebanese Kitchen, which caters to discerning palates of those craving a refined take on favorites like shawarma, falafel and much more. We spoke to chef and owner Rachid Eido about what sets his restaurant apart and why local eaters are so crazy about Lebanese cuisine. Q: What is your culinary background? A: After graduating from culinary school, I worked at Crown plaza Beirut for four years and went on to become a junior sous chef at Intercontinental Beirut for two years. After mastering the Lebanese cuisine, I moved to Saudi Arabia to be the personal chef of the royal family for four years. While working there, I got offer from Omni Hotels in Dallas to be the chef de cuisine for Lebanese cuisine. From there I joined Four Seasons Baltimore and ultimately joined Lebanese Taverna Baltimore as executive chef, which is a leading Lebanese restaurant chain in USA. After having a successful professional journey, I pursued my dream to open my own restaurant here in Naples. Q: How were you inspired to become a chef? A: Im a third generation professional Lebanese chef following my father and grandfather. Q: What brought you to Naples? A: My dream of opening my own restaurant brought me to Naples because I see an opportunity to showcase my cuisine. Naples is also becoming a destination for top quality restaurants in the state. Q: Can you tell us about your father and grandfathers culinary legacy in Beirut? How about your family? A: My grandfather used to own a hummus shop in Beirut that served a traditional Lebanese breakfast. He was very well known and respected in the culinary circle and my father went to culinary school and graduated at the top of his class. He has fifty years of culinary experience working with royal families in Middle East and top international hotels. Now, he works in Monte Carlo, France as Master Chef. Ultimately I followed his foot steps to become a top Lebanese chef in the U.S. Q: Where does hummus fit into your family history? A: It started the streets of Beirut in the 1940s. This historical city has been the center of trading and conducting businesses in the Middle East for many centuries and in the middle there was my grandfathers hummus shop. My father grew up within this environment and it sparked in him the passion about our Lebanese cuisine which became his craft, or better... his art. I inherited this passion and love for our cuisine. So you can say that the love for hummus was the spark that ignited in us the passion for our craftsmanship and close relationship to our origin Beirut. Hummus is part of our family and it fits in all three meals on our dining table. Ours is a secret recipe that has been passed down through four different generations. Q: Middle Eastern food seems to only be growing in popularity in the West. What do you think sets it apart from our culinary traditions and makes it appealing now? A: Its one of the healthiest cuisines in the world and its getting very popular in this country now. You can see any grocery store full of Middle Eastern products. Lebanese food is all cooked or prepared from scratch and it has wide selection of vegetarian options. Q: Do you consider yourself a bit of an ambassador of Lebanese culture? A: Absolutely. Im one of the few Lebanese chefs who have worked with my grandfather. Im very open to even teach young chefs and sometime do cooking classes at my restaurant Q: You and Asif Syed of 21 Spices partner frequently to present vegan Indo-Lebanese buffets. How are the two cuisines complementary in terms of flavor profiles? What do guests expect from the dishes when they arrive? A: The closer countries and cultures are geographically the more common is there cuisine. Granted, there are many different ethnicities within India. However, what the Indian cuisine and Lebanese cuisine have in common is that there wide variety of spices and flavors. Also, theres the cultural importance of food. For both of us, food is celebration! A gift you want to share with family and friends, daily if possible. Both our cuisines can very easily accommodate a vegan diet since we use so many different vegetables and plant-based ingredients. We had two Indo-Lebanese Vegan Fests which were sold-out because we were not only able to provide a plant-based and flavorful buffet but also we did not use any added oil! We feel that we are pioneers in this field, working hand-in-hand with the charity www.aplantbaseddiet. org, which promotes a plant based and healthy diet. Q: Which dishes are you particularly proud of? A: I love all my dishes but chicken Farrouj is my favorite, which is a broiled and grilled free-range boneless bird. Q: What do you find challenging? A: My challenge is to bring everyone to my restaurant, Im confident once they come they will start loving my food and restaurant Of course as any other restaurant we are challenged by the offseason, but we look at it as an opportunity to even more focus on the patrons who are here all year around. Connecting with them and building the relationship is very important to us and crucial to the success of our restaurant. Q: Who or what are your greatest culinary influences? A: As a chef, everywhere I go and everywhere I worked I was influenced by great chefs, the culture I was living in and of course my heritage in Beirut with my father and grandfather teaching me everything they knew. I always try to keep an open mind. I have already learnt a lot through our collaboration and friendship with Chef Asif from 21 Spices. It is great to have such a recognized chef in your backyard where I can literally walk over to his kitchen. Q: What has been one of your favorite culinary experiences? A: Cooking at Kareems Lebanese Kitchen is my dream come true. Q: What are your favorite culinary resources (books, blogs, etc.)? How do you keep your dishes relevant? A: I have a few cooking recipes and notes from my grandfather and father; I also follow Thomas Keller and love his style of cooking and recipes. I have given a modern touch to Lebanese cuisine keeping the recipes traditional. BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTO Specials good from December 7-9, 2017.
